I had sailed on a tramp steamer, been jolted in jinriksha's and carried across streams by little brown men whose bareness embarrassed me at first-to marry Harry, my Harry, only to hear that a detestable Russian army lay between Pekin and Qiharo and would delay us for a month or more. ' I can remember yet how I had to bite my lip tm lteep from crying before those curious slant- eyerl fellows. I secured comfortable quarters in one of those little Japanese houses-"play housesu-I call them, and had blubbered for perhaps two days when a dignified little Japanese entered and to my astonishment requested, nay ordered, that the most gracious Emperor of Japan requested my honorable presence at once. Not being so important yet "having some spice of honorw in my own work. a newspaper wo- man, I was delighted at the opportunity to see a really, truly, Emperor. Dressing hurriedly I fol- lowed my pompous, little guide, who provoked my inward mirth by his unfailing dignity. In a short time we entered the beautiful grounds of the most holy Emperor of Japan. Entering the pal- ace and passing through innumerable, thick car- peted rooms, whose walls rolled back at the touch and the air seemed heavy with some pungent Oriental perfume. I presently entered the ante-chamber of the Emperor of Japan. ' e i I remember thinking with a little thrill how perfectly happy I would be if only Harry were with me. I recalled myself with a start and turn- ed to meet my Jap guide coming softly toward me. I drew back, startled, but he merely motion- ed toward a little entry, though still "sizing me upl' as I thought. I entered, and walked in apparently calmly, tho' really my bones were knocking, made a low obeyance to the little brown man on the "high chair," as it looked to me, and inquired what was his will with me. He did not answer immediate- ly, but on looking around and seeing my guide and another man near harshly ordered them from the room--the went-tho' sullenl , it seemed to Y me. Then his little slant eyes regarded me curious- ly-4'You Helen Lenoldsl Come to meet Mr. Hallery Lice ?" Astonishment at his knowlezlge of my affairs werha as showed itself in m face, for he smiled Y hugely. "Are vou not the ath-el-atic ffirl who G .f . I - 25 shoot, swim ?" tl had won a medal in a wo- men's swimj. ' "And are you not the girl-el who wrote Q newspaper article on the pl-easant war P" To all these rapid-fire questions I merely nod- ded and he made a queer little gesture of satisfac- tion and struck a queer dragon shaped gong which nearly frightened the wits out of nie. Immediately came a soft shuffling of feet from somewhere to my left and a servant entered and bowed low to the Emperor. They conversed rapidly for some minutes and as I looked curiously around it seemed to me as if the reed walls on the left bulged inward as if someone were pushing against themithere. "Miss Leynolds-this man talk to you l" The servant bowed courteously to my gaze and mo- tioned toward a low divan. I seated myself and watched interestedly the short, erratic, walk of the little Emperor. Then the interpreter: "Miss Reynolds, you are aware that the two Japanese parties, the Okai and the Shumari are in deadly enmity over the policy followed by the Emperor in the presentiwar ?" QThis in the most perfect Englishgatiny nod he continuedj. "The Em- peror has long wanted to culminate this unhappy war by negotiation with the Czar of Russia-this the Shumari are aware of and have killed each of the three messengers we have dispatched, sending us a hideous remembrance, two human fingers, the sign of the party." Vtfhat this was leading up to I was perfectly unaware, but in any event I was intensely interested. Then the interpreter: "Miss Reynolds, for the sake of humanity, for the sake of Japan's homeless and destitute, the Emperor begs you carry an important paper, in fact, peace negotia- tions to the Czar of Russian I sprang to my feet in asonishment, perhaps my firm determination - - r 1 : 'K ' - ' "fs -.

"As I understand, Miss Reynolds, you are to have a happy event in your life in the near future and the Emperor has laid aside 350,000 in English curency for you on the culmination of your services." I wavered, Harry and I were so poor, and the poor boy had worked so hard to scrape our piti- fully small nest egg together. That interpreter knew his business all right for he artfully added: "Your route will take you past Oiharo-maybe you could see Mr. Rice there and he could accompany you from there to the headquarters of the Czar"- and I assented as he knew I would. Then my instructions: First of all, I was to regard my papers as myself. But as to my route. I was to go from Pekin to Bangai--by boat, I chose mentally, as I had experienced Jap jinrik- shas. From there, if successful, overland to the Czar's headquarters. They especially warned me, and the Emperor was intensely earnest, to beware of any men the lobes of whose ears had two min- utes punctures. These, he said, were men of a strong organization, descendents of the old jap- anese robbers and pirates, who had murdered the other three messengers. I left the palace, my precious document clasp- ed closely to my breast, and seeing punctures in the lobes of all the palace servants' ears, big enough to see a house through. I happened to half turn and saw my guide of the palace follow- ing me, tho' when he saw that I noticed him he pretended to be buying some cakes from one of the small shops. I went forward for perhaps two English blocks then turned swiftly, sure enough there was my man. I realized, heart-sick, that I was followed even now. Then I went rapidly through a maze of street and crowds and finally arrived at my quarters breathless and triumphant, for it seemed I had shaken my persistent shadow. I immediately began to make preparations tb go to the boat and taking my .38 Smith 81 XVes- son revolver, lay it on the dresser in front of me. Then I thanked my stars I had been so raised, particularly in regard to my skill in shooting and gymnasium work. Then I thought that perhaps I might meet Harry and prayed, ohl so strongly that I might. There was a bare possible chance that I might, for the last time I had heard from him he was preparing for a cruise against the pirates in the vicinity of Bangla. Then I ended my "day-dreaming" or rather ''evening-dreaming'I and taking only my neces- sary belongings and strapping my Smith 81 W'es- son in a suitable place I left for the water front and the junk the Emperor had designated as my conveyance. Finally finding my destination among the di- lapidated and nondescript junks along the harbor, I walked up the gangplank of a villianous looking junk and handed the note the Emperor had given me to the old japanese who was smoking on the hatchway. Ile read the note and toddled, beck- oning to a little room that was so neat and de- cidedly japanese that I voluntarily gave a little gurgle of delight. As the Emperor had told me that the junk would sail the next day, I opened the port window and began a letter to Harry and became so interested in it that I forgot the dan- gerous position I was even now in. The sound of muffled oarlocks aroused me and I leaned out of the window to see six villianous looking laps come quietly over the side of the junk-this was not so unusual but. with a start, I thought I re- cognized the square shoulders of my palace guide. As the sputter of the wood torch brightened it threw a weird scene in relief against the dark background of the night. The litter of coiled rope, rotten sails, thrown against the sides of the junk would come into view, then were blackened by the deceptive light. The light lit fitfully on the japs in the prow. They were in a close group, conversing in low tones with every now and then a glance to- ward my room. Then they dispersed quietly and soon I heard the soft shuffle of bare feet, the creaking of ropes., . 'Soon my. suspicions and alarms were thoroughly aroused, for the junk was in motion. I lay tense in the bed for hours it seemed to me, every muscle flexed. and praying that some power would send strong, dependable Harry to my aid. Then echoing, eeirly up the passage came the soft pat, pat, of bare feet. My limbs re- fusing to move I grasped my revolver and strained myself against the wall. I Presently the door began to slowly open, and I could discern the cunning features of my crafty guide of' the--palace. I-Ie cautiously approached . .. --.matt .... . ., .. wht L., Page I ourtecn the bed, then-I must have made some sound, for he was on me like a flash before I could fire. He evidently intended to choke me for he made sev- eral attempts to reach my throat-but as I have said, I am very strong and was nearly his equal in strength. VVe wrestled in silence for a space of time, then I felt a tightening of his muscles and he threw me on the floor. I felt a stinging sensation on my wrist and grabbed the revolver I had drop- ped in the fight. He was reaching for my throat now, and the smell of his clothes, the touch of his body to mine maddened me and I thrust the bar- rel of the revolver against his body and angrily ordered him up. He slowly arose, his mouth twiching with rage, and his slant eyes like green slits of fire. I was horribly frightened and had a fear that the other murderers might have heard the noise made by our fight. The cords of my bathrobe gave me an idea how to do away with my captive and covering him with the revolver I tied him to the bed as best I might. For some moments I lay in the corner farth- est from the door, moaning in terror and pain,for the brute had bruised me horribly, and satisfied that the next few minutes would witness my death. Presently I decided that I would carry the war into the enemy's camp and crept softly to the door. There was no sign of life in the pas- sageway and I shivered as a blast of cold, salt air struck my bare shoulder, for the Jap mad torn off the sleeve of my negligee in our fight. Then the sound of the Shumari conversing in low modified voices from somewhere in the re- gion of the prow came to me and I proceeded more cautiously. Flickers of light through the porthole at the end of the passageway warned me that the Shu- mari were on the deck outside the deckhouse and I cautiously glanced through the porthole and on the ghostly scene outside. The men were in a semi-circle and I was directly above them. They were sewing upon some canvas and as I watched I recognized it as being those in which they bu- ried the dead at sea. They I shuddered-they were making that bag to encompass my body and so certain were they of the little jap's ability to do away with m that they had begun work on my sea coffin. I debated rapidly upon my immediate course of action-if only Harry were there to judge for me-and decided as the men appeared to be with- out revolvers, but had their murderous looking knives, I would stand more chance of success if I could get them before they could separate. My plans worked beautifully, without a word of warning I stepped out and tried to say calmly, 'fHands up l" in English, of which they would not have understood a word. But my throat seemed to be stopped and I gave an insane sort of yell which served the purpose admirably, for they sprang to their feet and huddled in the stern, a frightened, chattering group of laps, with no thought of attacking me. And it must have been a picture to frighten anyone, there I was to all appearance a chatter- ing maniac with a revolver that might do damage at any time and they showed their respect for my revolver by keeping where I motioned. The ghostly yellow of the torch light threw only the stern of the boat in relief and I imagined I heard a noise in the prow, but dared not turn my head for the ,laps were becoming bolder and showed signs of attacking. I noticed particularly the ac- tions of one fellow whose arms hung long, gor- illa-like and I thought once or twice he glanced past me. but when he saw that I noticed he tried to act unconcerned. The soft pad of bare feet back of me made me wheel suddendly. I saw nothing in the blackness and I turned just in time to stop the swift attack of the Japs with threatening motions of my re- volver. I was certain that there was someone in the darkness back of me and I realized that I was at a terrible disadvantage. If I turned my head for the fraction of a minute, the 'Iaps in the stern would attack me and at any minute a shot or blow from the something back of me would spell my "finis." I tried stratagem and began to slowly back toward the right side of the junk, watching both the stern and the prow as best I might, but I had miscalculated and stumbled over a loose rope end and lowered my revolver in trying to regain my balance. There was a cat-like rush from behind and I clenched and fought desperately with my palace guide who had somehow released himself from my insecure fastenings. He secured a hold on mv upraised wrist and slowly bore it downward by Eugene Oregon ff, 4? V gf EY si if 'E 5 . Q'-i . t hm?

J' ' i E Oregon , Fifteen main strength-the other men were near waiting to deal me a finishing blow and as I felt 1ny strength going I desperately pulled the trigger and screamed to the one who had always helped me out of all troubles--"Harry! Oh Harry!" 'fLittle girl! Helen! I'm coming!" Oh! Lord! just wait you devils. You"-it seemed he was crying with rage. At the sound of his voice the murderers stopped aghast but before they could fly a blue cyclone swept over the side and Harry followed by a boatload of blue jackets from his cruiser were cutting and slashing my would-be murderers. Harry was unarmed, having dropped his sword in his haste to get over the side of the junk, he told me afterward. As I lay still too dazed to move I saw he and my guide in a des- perate struggle-the guide trying with all his might to kill him with his murderous knife. In their contest they took no notice of where they were stepping and the guide began backing in my direction. I glanced at Harry and motioned to- ward the man's ankle-then suddenly when he was within my reach I grabbed his ankle and he dropped instantly. Harry was upon him and had him by the throat. Then when he had choked him into submission he was put into irons and taken to the government cruiser for trial. As I was incoherent in my joy and could do nothing but sob on Harry's shoulder we were rowed to the cruiser, there I told my story, and Harry alternately stormed, praised my courage and strength and stamped up and down in his rage. He vowed if a single hair of my head had been injured he would have blown japan off the map, and knowing him I believed it. I As I am writing this Harry, my Harry is holding one hand while I am ineffectually trying to write with the other. Harry punctuates the sentences with-well you know we are to be mar- ried as soon as we reach Zona, then we are to de- liver our negotiation papers to the Czar's head- quarters three miles inland and our journey will be done. Harry says he won't touch a cent of my 550,000 and I have earned 3300.000 but it's our nest egg and he must. He has finished telling a beautiful little japan- ese legend which ends, "And they lived happy ever after" and I can think of no better way to end this tale and I am sure we will, aren't you?

But ere the land To both, so blessed, was reached, a thing both ill And sad had come to pass: for while in flight Above the great and mighty waters of earth, The little maiden, Hellas. looking back, Fell downward into the sea and met her doom.

Ttcenty ' O"C.i'0'l rom Four to Six in Adirondacks HE UB Quartetf, consisting of Betty Bur- ton, janet Bandon, Mildred Burner and Margaret Benshay had been at the Burtonls summer home in the Adirondack Moun- tains, and were now in camp, a few miles farther up in the mountains at "Big Lake,', where they were planning to spend most of their vacation with chaperone, Miss Brohman, who had been a teacher at "Braermoute," a boarding school where the girls had just completed their junior year. About four o'clock onemorning in june, Betty awakened and, jumping up quickly, after a few minutes strenuous work had the other three girls on the floor of the cabin, and the woods rang with their shouts of laughter. f'Come on, girls, let's go out around the lake- we haven't been yet, and you said you wanted to go and see fOld Miriam,' the fortune teller,', said Betty, when the girls had dressed and were in front of the camp. "janet, you and Margaret go around on the right side of the lake and Mil- dred and I will go on the left. The first couple to get back after three o'clock will be treated by the other side." "Alright, and who will be here to see who gets back first PM asked all the girls at once. "Mother will be here," replied Betty, "and we will start at six o'clock." 'IBravo! Come on janet and let's get our 'duds' on and be ready to start before the other girls,', said Margaret, and the girls rushed off to the "Gute Nacht Cabin" hand in hand. 'fCome on Mildred, jane has breakfast ready and we mustn't let the other girls beat us," and they ran off to the "Brot Cabin,'y or dining cabin. IVith cautious steps, about quarter of six, janet and Margaret came through the trees from "Cute Nacht" and were surprised to find Betty and Mildred sitting calmly at the foot of a tree, watching some birds on the lake. "XVell, I guess you girls had better give in and say your beaten in getting here first," Mil- dred replied to their crys of surprise. "VVe've been here hours, it seems like, waiting for you girls. Canit we start right away Metty ?', "VVait till I tell 'Mutter' we're goingf, from Betty as she ran off through the trees to Mr. and Mrs. Burton's cabin, but was back in a minute calling: "All aboard for the lake trip." "Aye! Aye!" responded the girls, and when Mrs. Burton's shrill whistle broke the morning stillness the two couples, with many good bye calls, went in opposite directions into the forest. After having walked for about an hour and a half, which had been spent in pleasant conversa- tion, Mildred remarked to Betty as they were resting by the lake: "Doesn't it seem as if Nat and Bill ought to be here-but then I suppose they are having a better time in townf, "In town," broke in Betty, "why didn't you know they had gone camping somewhere near Malone. Didn't Nat tell you-but that's right, they didn't know they were going when we left. Bill wrote just last Monday and said the crowd were to start on a camping trip Tuesday. Come on, we must go on." They set out and, as they were descending a small rise, noticed in front of them a large camp. "VVhy, whose camp can that be PM exclaimed Mildred as they stopped in surprise. "I don't know and didn't know there were any camps between here and Roger's camp. I wonder"-Betty paused as they heard footsteps behind her and turned to see who was coming. Then, "Bill and Nat," as the two boys advanced. "Hoho! Bet-we surprised you girls, didnit we," said Bill. 'iIVell, you girls are going to be our guests for today and be prisoners while we boys have some fun with the other girls." And he sent the club call which brought several other boys from the tents below. "But Bill, Margaret and janet are on the other side of the lake and we are having a contest with them,', exclaimed Betty, as thee boy's pur- pose dawned on her, "and we have to go on or we will have to treat them." 'fIVhat of it,', replied one of the boys who had come up. "Your father and 'chap' are here and we are to go after your mother and Marg. and janet at six o'clock. Your father knew we Eugen?

"Yes, and listen to our plan," replied Nat. f'W'e will fix up some kind of a scary note and one of us take Ioe's pony and sneak up to camp and pin it on the cabin door. Wfe will say you are a prisoner and demand so much money, etc. Do you get ine? Oh, we fellows are pretty smart alright.', By this time they were among the numerous tents which comprised the boys' camp. Mr. Bur- ton and Miss Brohman had come up and were laughing heartily at the girls predicament. f'Here's some red ink and some old wrapping paper," called Joe, and the boys with the girls in their midst followed him to the table which had been placed under the trees. They all offered suggestions and finally the missive was written and one of the younger boys had been dispatched on Joe's pony to pin it on the cabin door. "VVhat will the girls think?,' said Mildred. "XYhat if they should be able to scrape together ten dollars and leave it at the "Bear's Head." "Don't you worry about them leaving the money there," broke in Bill. "VVe won't give them a chance." P14 Pk Pk Pk Ik wk PK V Pk "It doesnlt look as if Betty and Mildred are back yet," said Janet when she and Margaret had come in sight of camp from their trip to Mirianfs. 'fXVhy look, there's something on the door of the cabin. Itls probably a note from the girls but what a horrible looking thing for them to write." - Indeed it was horrible, as the brown paper had given the red ink an unusual color and the boys had taken care that it was well decorated with spots of the ink. l'XVhy, look here Marg"-and Janet read: " 'To the Misses Bandon and Benshay: " fMiss Burton and Miss Burmer are here in our keeping and unless you girls leave ten dollars in the hollow tree at the Bear's Head at five o'clock, your honored hostess and her guest, com- monly known as Mildred, who have been taken to a dense part of the woods, will be started in a direction, not the one in which your camp lies and then we will desert them. NO MANS CRONVD., " "janet, do you suppose it's true F" asked Mar- garet. Hjust think, Betty and Mildred lost in these woods at night and no place to stop. Itys three o'clock and we must be at that tree at quar- ter to five at least. NVhere's Mrs. Burton and where's some money,', and the girls rushed off to find the desired. At five o'clock the two girls with but six dol- lars and a half in Janetys coat pocket, were sitting at the foot of a tree at Bear's Head, discussing whether the "No Man's Crowd" would be satis- fied with six and a half dollars, when they saw a canoe landing at the head of the inlet known as the Bear's Head. "Those must be the members of the No Man's Crowd who are coming for their moneyf' whis- pered Janet as the persons advanced. 6'Aren't they awful looking people. H wish we didn't have to stay and explain about the money." The girls, shaking with fright, barely heard the gruff voice of one of them ask: "XVhere is the money ?" Janet, in a trembling voice, said they had only six and a half and was starting to explain when she was interrupted by a chuckle from one of the men. Then came a burst of laughter from an- other and then the boys pulled down the black cloths with which they had hidden their faces. Before the girls had in the least recovered from their surprise, five other canoes had ap- peared around the bend and soon the girls were surrounded by Mr. and Mrs. Burton, Miss Broh- nian, Betty and Mildred and the remainder of the crowd at XVill's camp. "Come! Come! We must get back to the boys' camp in a hurry or James will be having a terrible time. VVe niustn't be late for that delicious din- ner he has prepared for us," Mr. Burton called. "Yes, back to the camp we go," cried the boys in unison and in a few minutes the deep silence of the Bear's Head was distrubed only by the faint echo of the boys' merry college song, "Now for some eats, letis go."

If , S I tlnngs stirring on time. I am Going to cook for this gang I want This didn't have much effect on the two chaps to whom I was speaking, for all each did was just grunt. But l thought I knew what I was saying. so I wound the clock up to the last notch and set the alarm at four o'clock. For once I was going to show those boys that I was an early riser. Three other boys and myself had been camp- ing out and working for some little time, and this incident, which I am about to describe, was one of our many experiences, Que of the boys, how- ever, was away at the time this accident occurred. "XVell, hurry up and douse the glim," sput- tered some one from under the bed covers. "I'm sleepy." , I doused the glim, as we termed it, and went scrambling and feeling for the bed, when-Ouch! I broke my toe against that post, and hopping on one foot I stumbled and fell on to the bed. "It's too bad you can't get in bed like you were civilized," growled Iieopke. "Yes, and this hill I am sleeping on keeps me sliding all over the tent, I don't like your fir bough bed," spoke out jesse Black. "If you fellows don't like it. you can lump it." I answered, and at the same time I was feeling for a decent place to sleep on. But sleep was out of the question for a while, XVe made up our bed about three times, and every one of us had to fight for covers. At last we settled down and went to sleep. There was nothing to break the silence but the moaning of the wind through the trees, and our snores. But nothing more was needed. Wie were enough to wake the dead. The next morning I heard a loud alarm bell under my ear and on opening my eyes I saw that I was crosswise the bed, and Keopke-well he had taken a blanket and crawled off by himself. jesse Black was huddled up on a pillow in one corner of the tent. I glanced at the clock-five o'clock and no mistake. I rubbed my eyes and looked again. Hjxlll I bughouse F" I said to myself. I got up and examined that clock. "That cer- tainly is five o'clock, and I'd swear I set it at four,', I said. "Gee Crickets! fellows, crawl out. Here it is, five o'clock and I thought I set that crazy- Now laugh, will you? IVhat is wrong with you guys anyway PM "Ch, nothing,'I said Black, "you look so funnyfy He said I looked funny because he had noth- ing else to say, and I made up my mind that one of them had changed that alarm. There was something wrong or they wouldn't have laughed so hard. XVhile I was working with breakfast, jesse took his fishing rod and went fishing in spite of my protests. He knew he cOuldn't catch any fish but he went because I didn't want him to. That was the way they both did, and if I said, "two and two equals four,'I they would say it made six. After a few minutes everything was running smoothly around camp with the exception of "Pat" He spent his spare time putting soap or butter or something else into the coffee pot or mixing salt with sugar. That is the way he al- ways did when he had nothing else to do. so I asked him to fry the bacon. I had learned enough to keep him busy. The bacon seemed to be unusually greasy and a large amount of grease was in the frying pan. "Pat" took the pan and held it over the fire as I had been doing, while I went into the tent after some eggs. I turned around just in time to see the grease in the pan catch on fire. "Pat" jerked the pan out and started to blow out the flame, then he stood up straight and turned as white as a sheet and began to breathe quick short breaths. Then all at once he let a yell out 'of him that shook the very tree tops, and whirling the pan around his head, he threw it at a tree, and started to run and dance.

In my excitement I dropped the eggs and ran to capture him. but he ran at me like a mad man and I got out of the way. Black came running who had gone crazy. XYhat's the matter, is he mad?" he said, half out of breath, and at the same time bugging out his eyes until they were like teacups. "Hot grease." l exclaimed, "but what will we do, we haven't got a thing to stop the pain." Wie didn't have soda or anything else and there he was, in there on the bed moaning and groaning like a horse with the colic. There was very little time to think what to do. "Let's try flour," said Black running into the without his rod to see tent. "And mud," I exclaimed. "lt helps bee stings and might cool this off a little." VVe soon had a mix-up of flour, water and mud made into a plaster and ready to put on. 'fXVhere is your burn,Pat," I asked him. "Alldover," he said between groans. We simply tore his shirt off of him and found that his chest and right arm and hand were burned black. He made an awful fuss when we put on our plaster, but we put it'on anyway. In about half an hour we got him cool enough to talk and not groan. "Well take you over to the boss's house and send you to town in a buggy. How will that suit you?' I asked him. 'fAnything, but get me to town or I'll die," he muttered. XVe wrapped him up in dish towels and assist- ed him to the cabin. It was a beautiful morning and we tried to cheer Pat up with jokes and other merriment. VVhen we reached the house, we were met at the door by Zeak, one of the orchard bosses. He was fat and short and when he saw Pat all wrapped up he started to laugh. The looks of Zeak was enough to make Pat laugh in spite of his pain. XYhen Zeak learned the facts he ran around the farm like a boy. In a few minutes he had a horse and buggy ready and was at the door. As they went round a turn in the road we saw that the old horse fcrippled though he wasj, was on the run and Zeak was pounding him with a whip. XYe heard one groan and knew where it came from.

He was a fussy little old man, but a great favorite among the students. They came to him with all their troubles and if there were any new schemes or plans it was always Prof. Spicrick who headed the procession to the presidents office. As he had been a little absent minded for the last week, he was the center of several quite clever jokes. r ,T ,s . Nxxsv sfxfxfxfv o But this morning, he appeared outwardly to be quite composed. He came in at chapel and took his accustomed seat with a very grave look on his chubby face. It had been comparatively silent until the moment of his appearance and then such a buzzing and humming of voices was rather disconcerting at the least. After a surprisingly long ten minutes the Professor heard his name called from the rear of the platform. "Professor Spicrickl Professor Spicrickln He turned and saw the president motioning from the door. He got up and went to see what was wanted-would he please take the table from the corner of the rostrum and place it in the cen- ter, ready for the scripture reading? "XVhy, of course! How very stupid of me not to notice that it was not ready." He went back and very deliberately took hold of the table firmly with both hands and started for the front. A giggle came from the girl's section followed by a snicker from another corner. He got safely to the front but when he tried to set the table down, it did not stop where he thought it would but kept going down, down, down. By that time, there was more than a giggle for everyone was enjoying the joke. "XVhat can be the matter now P" thought the professor. He looked wildly around and there in the corner still sat the legs of his table! D. DuHH,,I 5. Twenty- three , :K-1-.-A. U.

"XYell they once was, and tonight I got to thinkin' about a experience I had when they was." "Can you remember when they were falls FU asked Tom incredulously. "I dunno but what l can. They was the prettiest falls l've ever seen. They was about ten feet high and the water fell in one straight sheet clean across the river without a single break," avowed the old man. "But how about your experience ?" "It certainly was some experience," said the old man preparing himself for a yarn by filling his pipe and finding a more comfortable posi- tion. "It was back in the early fifties and I was doin' some prospectin, up on the -- river. There was some gold on the -- river then and I had come there with a feller named jud Splan- dern. Funny name, ain't it, and he was just as funny as his name. He said he was a English- man. I guess he was sort of a Quaker because he didn't believe in guns and tried to make me do away with mine. I had a good old gun then. I could stand fifty yards away and hit a nail on the head with it every time, and" i- "But what about the falls." "XVell, me and him was campin' just below the falls about a half mile. lVe had been there about three weeks and we had been getting quite a bit of gold. Une afternoon, I think it was Friday. we had had poor luck and so we quit work about two hours before sundown and came up from the river. Splandern set at makin' some biscits for supper. He was some cook and he sure could eat as well as cook. I guess that was why he was so fat. XVell, I went down to the river for some water when all at once l heard a whoop and I turned around in time to see Splandern shot through by an arrow from a bunch of lnjuns who had just come from behind a bunch of jack pines, .Xs soon as they saw me they came running down towards the river. They didn't have horses because hors- es were kind of scarce those days but they could run like greased lightninf I tried to keep them away by shootin' at them with my pistol but I found I couldn't load fast enough so I started runnin'. I ran and the Injuns ran after. They had started me upstream because the shore was open clear up to the cliff by the falls and they thought they could corner me there more easier. XVell, I ran and ran CI certainly was glad I wasnot as fat as Splandernj, the falls growing closer ln' closer. I didn't have any plans or ideas of how to escape and finally they had me almost to the cliff. All to onct I hit on a idea. Ild been told that lots of times there is a hollow place behind the sheet of water. I thought that I couldn't escape no other way I might as well try to get behind the falls as be killed by the Injuns. The falls fell right down alongside the cliff but running out into the water in front of the falls about six feet was a rock. It was about four feet above the water. Taking a last look I ran out on the rock and jumped right into the falls. Next thing I knew I was sprawling on the damp rocky floor of a sort of cave. There was such aroarinl that I don't think I could have heard a cannon go off. After a little while it got dark and I went to sleep. XVhen I woke up it was sort of half light. I was hungry and still stiff from myqrun. The cave where I was in was almost high enough so I could stand up and it seemed to run all the way under the falls. I started to explore it and found that it had nothiul in it and the farther back from the water the lower the top of it got. -Xll the time l was hungrier and hungrier and I couldn't find no way to get out. At last I thought I would go out the way I come in. It happened that the water was thinner there than any other place. I .- - ,,., ea.-.- . U I .

XYhen I got back to our camp I found that the Injuns had scalped Splandern but they hadn't taken nothing from the camp. I thought they would have took my gun but I guessthey didn't because they were afraid of it. I stayed in the same camp all summer until late in August when I decided to pull up stakes and go over the Cascades into the XVillamette valley to winter. Me and Splandern had cleaned about 320,000 between us and I thought I would hide it, where nobody could find it, until I could take it away. So I hid it in some little bags in a little hollow under the falls. During the winter I heard from someone that there was lots of snow in the - river country and I Become kind of scared about the money. Sure enough when I got back next spring there was a rapids in place of a falls because the flood had broken off the ledge. My money is still in them rapids and here I am, a poor old sheep herd- er the rest of my days --.

However, as both girls were very courageous and brave in spirit, they entertained no fear whatever at the prospect of staying alone in the little cottage "on the cliffs by the seaf, The small bed room window was left open and the moon sent its shafts of light in where they fell on the two sleepers all unconscious of a strange visitor who was so soon to cause them so much excitement. It was nearly one olclock when Edith awoke with a start-'fOh!" she gasped, f'Marie, quick! VVake up!" But Marie was asleep and when Marie was asleep, she was very, very far from being awake. After ceaseless efforts, the now thoroughly frightened Edith succeeded in con- vincing her chum that something was expected of her, and that that something was not to keep on sleepingg so she sat up very dazedly and gazed stupidly around her. One look at Edith's face served to waken her surprisingly fast to the fact that something was radically wrong. She listened and this is what she heard: Crunch-crunch-crunch-somewhere near the house. This was enough, and poor Marie was put sorely to the test of exhibiting some of her bravery. "VVhat's that Pl' she whispered. "Ol1!

There was no doubt about it-it was umnistakably the crunching of a man's foot on the frozen ground next to the house.

Found dead in churchyard with his head crushed." My interest was at once aroused by the news of the crime. I had plenty of time at my dis- posal having but recently been admitted to the bar and, with my inquisitive turn of mind it was na- tural for me to investigate the matter further. The neswaper account of the affair was as fol- lows: "Soon after midnight a man was seen running along Ferry street, He was promptly arrested by an officer. The man who is a prominent citi- zen of this section of the city, upon inquiry said he was going for a doctor and that somebody was hurt. No amount of questioning could draw any further information from him. H.-Xfter a lengthy search it was found that Rev. Smith lay in the churchyard next to his church. His skull had been crushed causing instantaneous death. Vtfhat perplexed the cor- oner's jury was how any ordinary person could inflict such a wound. "The especially peculiar part of the mystery is that Rev. Smith had the robes of the church over his night clothes. The rector's room was in con- fusion as if a burglar had rifled it. On the floor the police found an old style revolver, probably a cowboyls. 'KEarly this morning the arrseted man was released. The police are at a loss to determine how such a crime could be committed seemingly under their very noses. This promises to be the most interesting case that has occurred for several yearsu My mind was now fully made up. I would see the 'very place where the crime had been com- mitted and offer my assistance to the officers. As my case at court was set for ten and it was now eight, I had two hours to look over the grounds of the old Episcopal church and I determined to use the time well. The church was built on the corner of Ferry street and Edward's avenue, even with the side- walk. Next to it the rector lived in an L shaped house, the short leg of which was horizontal with the street. The long side on the back pointed to- wards the church. On the long wing of the house opened a small window from the gable. The rector slept in the short wing just over the street. Between the two buildings was an open court which was bounded on two sides by a tall iron picket fence and on the others by the church and house respectively. VValks were laid out and stone benches placed under the old shade trees. Gnly two doors led into this inclosure, one from each of the buildings. Being known by all the officers, I readily obtained permission to enter the house. I ex- amined first the doors and the room. All showed that some persons new at the art had been at work. The lock to the door on the street had been picked. The room was turned topsy-turvey as if one had searched for something. The re- volver was found on the floor where it had fallen. VVhen the police came, the door to the room was found locked on the inside with the key in the lock. The place and position where the body had fallen were marked out in chalk, for the police of this town take every possible precaution. Blood was all over the stone bench and had trickled down forming a minature pool underneath.

In a flash it came to me. Yesterday afternoon while passing through the street on my way to my office I had seen a cowboy struggling with an officer. At the policeman's foot was the self-same six-shooter. I now had the man placed, a marked man at that. with a nasty cut across his lip causing sev- eral teeth to show. I figured it out this way: The man had come to St. Louis for the ex- press purpose of robbing Rev. Smith who, it was rumored, was a miser. Arriving at night he had picked the locks and ransacked the house, at the same time making enough noise to awaken the rector who had come up behind him and knocked the revolver out of his handi I got no further. The door of my office was thrown open and a man of perhaps fifty years of age with perfectly white hair, entered. He had a hunted look about him and with a feeble voice began, almost with a whisper. "You are Alfred Boxer, Notary Public, I be- lievef' "Yes" I replied, "and glad to make your acquaintance." I "You won't be though when you know me," he piped. "I want to make an affidavit." I was astonished. This was to be one of my first affidavits, yet I kept my wits, picked up a short hand pad and commenced to write what he dictated. s'1i.-wit or oREooN, 5 jss. COUNTY OF ST. LOUIS. j I, Richard Day, being duly sworn. depose and say, that I am either wholly or partially respon- sible for the death of the late Rev. Smith. You persons who hear this read will understand better the events of last night, the tenth of March, 1908, if I give you an account of Rev. Smith's past history. Ten years ago Smith and I went to the same training school. XVe two friends were both try- ing to become preachers. During that term of 1898 a young lady, the sheriff's daughter, re- turned from college. Wfe both loved her the first moment we saw her and each of us being of jealous disposition began to hate the other. He won the girl and became a rector, while I went into an active business life. My career was unsuccessful for the simple reason that I fell in with bad company and became mixed up in some fraud and embezzlement cases. I then wrote a letter to the leader of the gang, I told him all about my plans and how I had worked them out. In some way or other Rev. Smith got hold of the letter and has extracted money from me ever since to keep from making the matter public. All these last eight years, I have lived on pins and needles until the last year being unable to raise the money, I resolved to destroy the paper. I had no revolver so I procured one last night from a cowboy and went on my way. A little before midnight I crept up, picked the lock to the front door, then the one to his room and began to search for the paper. I had just begun to look for secret places when I was startled by the Rev. Smith knocking the revolver from my hand. I shook him off and ran at full speed down the steps and out doors. For some reason never to be known I lingered. In about fifteen or twenty minutes, I saw some- body clothed in black rise from the room and walk along the edge of it to the gable window, pry it open and put something white in, then start to return. About half way back the Rev. Smith gave a muffled cry and pitched down headlong onto a stone bench. I, as you probably have guessed. ran for a doctor but was caught by a policeman who took me to the station. I was released this morning, because my reputation was good, and allowed to return home. I, as you can plainly see, will not live long. My senses are weakening and my strength is feeble. The paper will never be found for the reason that the house, God knows why, went up in flames this afternoon. At my trial this paper is to be read, for I am now going to surrender myself to the police and serve the term which is destined to be mine and which I pray will be a short one.

Life was usu- ally made so unpleasant for undesirables that they did not remain long. It came as nearly being a private school as it could be, without really being one, and there was certainly never a more snobbish crowd of youngsters. It created somewhat of a sensation when Cecile Dale walked in upon them one morning and took a seat in assembly. She looked about her politely but coolly, and being a good character reader, asked her information from professors rathers than pupils. She was unusually beauti- ful, with deep blue eyes and fair hair and she had a way of quietly ignoring those about l1er which both attracted and angered the pupils of lXIarmion, and caused much discussion among them. Snubs slid off her like water off a duck's back, and consequently the girls all disliked her and the boys secretly admired her, because they could not do so openly and keep in the "smart set." Cecile's grades were irreproachable and she spoke German and French fluently and English with such an accent that it was easy to see that she was a foreigner. Further than this the Mar- mion pupils knew nothing about her excepting that she wore queer but elegant clothes and lived in a most modern little bungalow in a rather modern part of town. "She certainly is the queerest personf' Pauline Day said,-and if Pauline said she was queer, she was, for Pauline was the leader of the set. The following winter she was again present and Nellie Stuart and Gordon Dean both reported having seen her. The one at Newport and the other camping in the Adirondacks.

I for one refuse to try to like herf, Gordon did not answer, but the next day he walked to school with Cecile and carried her books. After that his old associates avoided him but he did not appear to mind it. He and Cecile became fast friends. However school had not been holding more than two months when she stopped.

In the days of long ago, when Indians were numerous in the western states, a certain chief Eagle Foot was honored by three daughters. The father and they became greatly devoted to each other. A great plague started in his tribe and all perished but his three daughters and himself. They were superstitious about staying in the country where the plague played havoc with his tribe, so he took them to the mountains to live the remainder of their days. One day while he was hunting in the foot hills of Three Sisters a stray arrow from an un- known source, pierced his heart and he fell pros- trate down a huge cliff. On the morning of the third day of his absence, they set out to search for him, for they became thoroughly alarmed. They took three hunting knives and two dogs, but they had no thought of taking food with them. Ali day they tramped without results, and late in the evening, on the edge of the snow line they camped. Next morning they set out. Finally they struck a trail which was nearly covered with fresh snow which had fallen the preceding night. A man had evidently been on this path. There were his tracks deeply impressed in the soft, light snow. 'fOh! cried the oldest of the three sisters, "let us ascend this mountain quickly and overtake this man whoever he might be. "W'ell said' respond- ed the other two simultaneously. This incident seemed to put new zeal in the sisters and the blood flowed in their veins more hotly than ever before since they set out. Each, in her own heart, was full of emotion and each had hopeful eyes. All day they traced it until about four o'clock in the evening. Snow was already falling so thickly that the trail was covered, and the tracks were quickly becoming extinct. It had grown so dark lately, and with the aid of the falling snow, they soon lost the trail and were wandering over a field of desert, or icy plain. guided by no human or beast. for the dogs had long since gone ahead and were probably five miles away. A cold wind caused an exceedingly biting, piercing bliz- zard to blow. They soon became fatigued through hunger and cold. They sat down to rest in the snow, for they were already so sleepy that they staggered, when they walked. In a few minutes all three were asleep and they dreamed of nothing but their father. Soon they were paralyzed by the cold. O, God only knows how these pure hearted sisters were to perish so peacefully after their long struggle to save their father. Yes. in a few minutes they were frozen to death. They became stiff, snow gathered over their bodies. Their bodies were found two months later by a hunter just the way in which they died, with arms locked around each other seemingly in prayer for the life of their father. Ever after this, the peaks were known as "Three Sistersf, Edwin Fred Mack, 'I4. H -t .. f 'QE Q- -1-.., .5 . . 5.1.45 " s .1 -'z' :X jg s . iialwm A ,D ' - . -rs T ' .

He didn't like the idea of going into a house which might have a ghost in it. At the noon hour, Dunnerschmitt went home as usual to dinner. His house was at the very edge of Punkville and ust beyond his house was a small creek six or seven feet wide. After the captain had eaten his dinner and was leaving the house, he saw a man coming along the other side of the creek with a gun in one hand and a string of birds in the other. Thought the captain: 'KI wonder me if he has a license. I vill find oudt." So he walked across the bridge spanning the creek and as the hunter approached said: "Mine friendt, I vould like to see your license." The man looked at Dunnerschmitt a moment, then turned and ran along the edge of the creek. The Dutchman followed after him, calling upon him to stop. "In der name off der law,', but all the hunter did was to jump across the creek and run as fast as he could. Dunnerschmitt jumped too, but he didn't jump across. He fell kersplash, right in the middle of the stream. Generally cold water will cool a man off, but it didn't cool the captain--in- deed, when he stood up in the middle of the stream, he was very hot under the collar, and began saying some things in Dutch, which, if translated might not be very nice to read. After a minuate or so of such expostulating Dunnerschmitt started the chase again. The man ran towards the main street of the town Ca strange course for a man fleeing a policeman to takej. Dunnerschmitt came puffing up just in time to see the hunter go into an ice cream saloon. Said the captain, "I must cotch dot feller before he goes avay der back door oudtf' So he put on a new burst of speed, and after a short run reached ithe confectionery, where he saw the hunter inside, drinking a glass of soda-water. Dunnerschmitt rushed in aid said: "Now Iive got you, mine friendt. You vill kindly aggompany me to der nice little chail vot ve got." "VVhat are you going to take me to jail for?,' asked the hunter, holding the glass near his lips. f'Because you vos hunting mitoudt a licensef' The hunter put his glass down, stared at his would-be captor, then, noticing the condition of Dunnerschmitt's clothes, he began to laugh loudly. This made the captain angry, and, taking the hunter by the arm, began to pull him from his chair. "Ach! Dot is sufficient from you. You vill come along mit me now, or maype somedings vill happen." "lVait a minute, Mr. Cop," said the hunter, "you donlt want to take me." I He took a bit of colored paper from his pocket. "See this paper ?l' he said. "just put your peepers on that. Now are you going to take me ?', But Dunnerschmitt just turned around on his heel and walked away without another word. After Dunnerschmitt was gone, the hunter laughed again, long and loud. "The old dub asked me for my license," he said to the clerk," andEI thought I would have some fun with him. So I ran away, with him after me. Gee! He got some sold! Ho! ha! haw !" All the rest of the day and during his waking hous at night, Dunnerschmitt was grouchy, and be- fore morning he had a very nice cold, caused by his involuntary ducking. But he had a surprise in store for him when he reached the police station, which made him forget, for a while at least, that there was ever a hunter or stream in the world. XVhen he took out his key to unlock the door, he found that the door was already unlockedf, Dot's funnyf, said he, "maybe one of dose goot for nodding scared of every tings, is here before time." He opened the door and beheld Hyder standing in the center of the room, holding the arm of a young man. "Vere did you vas got dot feller?" asked the captain. e f'He's the ghost," replied Hyder. "You see," he continued, "I went by the house last night about eleven an' saw the light in the win- dow again. So I sez to myself, Ilm goin' to see if there is a ghost there or not. Well, I sneaked in the house, and clumb up the stairs on my tiptoes, soze whatever it was up there wouldn't hear me. VVhen I got up to the top of the stairs by the garret door,I peeked through the key-hole and saw this guy herefy and he-looked at the man beside him, this guy here, lookin' at this." Here he pulled the Chamois skin with the pentagon upon it from his pocket. The prisoner reached out his hand to take it away from Hyder. but was not quick enough, and he only received a hard squeeze upon his arm. "I thought I'd bring him here and let you take a peek at 'im,', ended Hyder, "so I arrested him and kept him in jail till about five thirty any then I brought him here." "Vot iss your names, prisone1'?', asked the captain. i ' . 12155. .,. 'T' R L: 'L " "'X ,n 557 it Eugene, H' 1 Par , 1 l -,.,1.Lf1 -, .1.,4 .1 ,--,L --.J -.1-sag-'ui-yah.fx.-, , . .-.A- , wir..

"l've been studying that figure which this of- ficer took from me, said Ragdale. "Vere did you get dot figures ?" asked Dunner- schmitt. "I picked it up out of a dirty corner of the attic," replied Ragdale. "Hyder," said the captain, "gift me dot fig- ures. I wish to examine itf' Hyder handed the skin to Dunnerschmitt rather reluctantly, for he would have liked to have kept it himself, but he knew that once Dunnerchmitt had it, he QHyde:j would never have it again. "Carry dis with you always und be rewarded," he read. "Hum, dot sounds like treasure," and he put the skin in his pocket while Hyder looked longingly at it and made a wry face. "Take der prisoner to der judge und charge him mit vagerazy,', Dunner- schmitt directed Hyder. Poor XV. Oscar was sentenced to four days in jail. As soon as he was placed in his cell, which, in fact, was the only cell in the jail, he took a pencil and a small piece of paper from his pocket and began to draw the star and pentagon. Then he wrote the initial letters of the words at the top of the figure in order to get the words as near in place as possible. After he had written the letters this is what he saw: G r a v e y a r d. "Graveyardl" he exclaimed. "The intial letters spell graveyard and all the letters say 'get right at very edge. yet at round dome. Now I've got the clue. I remember passing a graveyard when I came to this town and I believe there was a round dome, although I don't see how anybody in this burg could be rich enough to afford such a thing in a graveyard. Now it's up to me to get out of here. No, I guess I'll wait till my ti1ne's out. Those fool cops couldn't work that business out in a hundred years. It was just luck that I found the key to it." During nearly all the time that IV. Oscar Rag- dale was in jail, Dunnerschmitt pored over the Chamois skin and the drawing and writing upon it. The night that Ragdale was released found Dunnerschmitt in nearly the same position that Ragdale had been when first introduced. He was still studying the figure when Hyder came running t ohis house and pounded on the door with all his might." "Dunner?blazes, vos iss das?" exclaimed the captain when he heard the noise. He went to the door to see what had caused the trouble and be- held Ilyder standing at his door all out of breath. Before Dunnerschmitt had time to inquire as to the reason of his haste and as to the reason for his calling at such an hour as eleven o'clock at night. Ilyder said in a rather excited tone of voice: 'fThere's somebody robbin' the graveyardl Any- way I saw a light in the graveyard." . "Vell, vhy didn't you go und see aboudt it ?" asked Dunnerschmitt. "To tell you the truth, Cap., I was scared to go there by myselffl replied Hyder. "Humbug," said the Dutchman. "Come on mit me und ve vill get him. Chust vait till I gets me my gunf' i So off they went, after a walk of a few minutes were near enough to the cemetery to see a light at one corner of it. At the corner where the light was seen was a tomb having a round dome. The two policemen hurried around to that corner so that they could. approach the light in such a direction as to keep the tomb between them and whoever was near the iight. They reached the tomb, got down on their hands and knees, and crawled around just far enough to see who was the owner of the light. They were so surprised at what they saw that neither could move for fully two minutes. for down upon his knees, was IV. Oscar Ragdale running his fingers through a pile of gold coins. Dunnerschmitt was the first to recover. He pulled out a pistol and yelled at XV. Oscar to hold up his hands. Of course XV. Oscar was taken by sur prise, and all he could do was to give himself up The policemen were going to take him to jail again, and turn the money over to the heirs of the person who had buried the money if they could find out who had buried it, but Ragdale was pretty good at argument, and persuaded them to let him have a third and each of them take a third and then forget all about the graveyard episode. I may say, in conclusion, that the people of Punkville found out about it six months later, and Hyder and Dunnerschmitt had just time enough to get out of town, leaving Runner to havethe position of police captain ofiPunkville.'

L' -N Eugene, Oregon In the Spring a 'I oung an s ancy ,ii-. , fBci1zg Axzofhca' Bit of Rarelliztj Spring had set in. The violets and spring beauties filled the minds of the "Villa" girls, for they were permitted to go on long walks to hunt flowers and rumor has it that more than one for- mer "Villa', girl has met her f'fate" while hunt- ing for wild flowers, in the vicinity of the Acad- emy, though it was five miles from town there are many summer homes of eastern families, some of whom are known to the "Villain girls. Down the ravine and across the creek which marks the "Villal' boundary line, is one of the most beau- tiful of these homes. It is an old southern estate, the summer home of an old "Villa" grad who has a son preparing for Princeton "Spider" had met him at Richmond during the Xmas vacation and she had told us that he was very good looking, rather wealthy, but had no strong proclivity for the gentler sex. None of the other girls knew him, for he never came to the "Cegars" except for his summer vacation. There were about twenty girls who lived so far away from the "Villa', that they did not go home for Easter and "Spider,'l "Francois," "Tot" and 6'Rabbitt" were among this number. By Saturday the so had exhausted their store of amusements and the whole day stretched before them with nothing to do, so they asked permis- sion to go and hunt wild flowers "out of bounds" which was granted, Miss Cardell going along as chaperone. The old golf links, two miles from the school buildings, were unanimously conceded to yield "the most beautiful violets in the worldf' so it was decided to go there and the party set out immediately after breakfast, "Spider," "Tot" and "Rabbitt" had an attack of homesickness and decided to stay at school and write letters, so "Francois" remained behind too but after she had written a card or two, she jumped up. slammed her portfolio sheet, and said "I don't feel like writing today. I'm going to ask "Noddy', the dignified president of the school, Miss XVade- man if I can't go down the ravine and hunt for trilliums-won't you girls come along-or some of you, at least? None of us wanted to go just then, so she started out alone, telling us that if we decided to change our minds we'd find her "either in the ravine or on the flats along the creek. Two hours later, "Spider" glanced out of the window and saw Francois-but stay, Iyll tell you first what happened to Francois in those two hours, she told us all about it that evening, but if I should add a few little flattering things about her, don't blame her, for we all know she's the beauty of the "bunch', and we aren5t a bit jeal- ous of her either. "Francois'l had gone down the "Ravine" and wandered around quite a bit without finding trilliiims so she had gone on, 'way over to the boundaries on the other side of the "Villa" grounds, where there was a small woods, and still had been unable to get any more-but just as she was about to turn back, she saw a big clump of trilliums over on the next estate, she said that since she had gone so far without getting any- thing it wouldn't hurt to go a little farther and she hated to go back empty-handed so she went on. She soon found that it wasn't nearly as easy as it looked for she had to climb over a good deal of underbrush, but the harder it seemed to get there, the worse Francois wanted those tril- liums, so she kept on until she only had one tall tree trunk to climb over to reach them. Then she slipped and little needley pains shot up and down her foot. Wihat she was going to do so far away from anywhere, she didn't know-and there were the flowers, just out of her reach. She tried to get them but she was lying so she couldn't move the tiniest bit further and the best she could do was prop herself up on the other side of the tree trunk and look at them. a thing which was 11ot very consoling to say the least. She had been sitting there about fifteen min- utes when a dog came running by. She knew then that someone must be near and so she wistled to the dog and he came over to her. She patted him on the head and he stayed with her. In a little while she saw a couple of young men in hunting suits away back in the woods. They stood there a minute and then one of them struck off in the other direction-the second one whistled for the Q I "jj3g: Eae4gg-':..Z'?:2:'.- -e -91-' ' ily-.f '14 1 lv t fig: A .,, -. ..

The dog jumped up and would have gone to the man but Francois held his collar, so he barked for his master. Francois called to him and then the fellow looked their way-a puzzled look came into his face, but he turned and came toward "Francois.,' "XVhat are you doing with my dog P" he said not seeing that she was hurt. "IV ejust now spied a big rabbit but f'Dix" wasn't there, so I'm afraid we've lost him." Francois could see he was an- noyed and put out though he did speak civilly enough. so she flared up quick and said: "Go on then an dtake your old dog and catch the old rabbit. I slipped and hurt my.foot and I thought that since I was so far from a house, I'd ask assistance from the first person who came by, but if I'm interrupting your sport. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be so thoughtless. ,Ill wait until the next hunter comes along-maybe he won't be in such a hurryf, "I beg your pardon!" he interrupted, and all the annoyance left his face. "I didn't know you were hurt, let me see if I can't fix it-I've had lots of experience fixing sprained ankles-in football. y'know." i He came over and knelt down bv the log and took her foot in his hand. "Francois" face cleared, too and she said impulsively-"I'm sorry I spoke so harply. but I was afraid no one would COINS. and it docs hurt sof' NVell, to make a long story short, he fixed her foot and bandaged it with his handkerchief. She told him that she was going to the "Villa," and explained how she happened to be there alone. He said that he would have to carry her back, but she said that he mustn't do that. He told her that he didn't know what else to do-unless jack. his chum. hadn't gone home right away, as he said he would and was still chasing the rabbit. If he was still in the woods, they might make a litter and carry her back that way. A'Then go into the woods and hunt for him," Francois said, and he did. After calling a couple of times. he heard a faint haloo in the distance. He called Jack back and they made a littre out of their guns and a coat-and so carried her back to the "Villa" This is why "Spider" jumped and ran when she looked out and saw this queer procession coming, for Jack was her brother, and the other fellow was Jean Race, the boy who lives at the "Cedars.H They both go to the same school and were too far away from home to spend Easter there, so jean decided to have a house party at the 'fCedars," and invite some of his school friends. Jack had not planned to go until the last minute, and so had not written "Spider" about it. Of course there was quite a time. for it is against the "Villa" rules for the girls to have gentlemen visitors outside of their immediate family, except in special cases-and then only with the written consent of the parents and "Noddy," so the teachers did not know what to do. "Noddy,' came down in a few minutes and saw the whole situation at a glance! And tno one knows why, except that "Noddy" and Pean's mother had been school matesl, asked the boys to take Francois up to the infirmary, instead of getting some of the servants to do it. W'e girls were so surprised that we stood theer and stared a minute, before we had sense enough to follow them and see the rest of it. The other girls had not returned from the links, or I don't suppose it would have turned out the way it did, for "Noddy" was very careful of her brood and we barely ever saw a man unless we went "to town." Anyway, we all went into 4'Noddy's" private sitting room and talked while the infirmarian was fixing."Francois" foot. "Spider" told me afterwards that she never before in her life saw such a difference in any one as she noticed in Jean, for always before. he had been so indifferent wherever girls were concerned. Now he asked the president if they couldn't come tomorrow to see how "Francois, was-but f'Noddy" said it was against the rules, and be- sides, even though she might stretch a point on account of it being vacation, it would not be fair to the other girls, andythey might not like it. Jean thought a little and then asked if we girls might not come over for Easter dinner, and spend the day if "Francois" could be moved. He said that he was sure his mother would be glad to have us, and that they would take the best care of "Francois', and the rest of us. NVell. you can imagine ho wwe girls felt.-"Noddy" had never done a thing like this before. and we hadnit the slightest idea that she ever would. VVe were sur- prised at Jean's audacity. But we were more sur- prised than ever when "Noddy" said: "XVell, I'll see what Doctor XValters thinks about "Fran- cois' " anble-if she says it is all right. I see no 1.

Do not misinterpret this-I do not mean that we were idle, or that we added nothing to the activities of the school--far from it! ln that year the class of ,IS made a distinct place for itself in the E. H. S. l The first event of any importance in our high school career was the class meeting at which we elected our first officers. XVith a great deal of turmoil and confusion, we finally succeeded in choosing Edward Gray as president, Edna Ball, vice president, Frank Scaiefe, secretaryg Harold XVe,lls, treasurer, Clarence Bell, sergeant-at-arms, and Juanita XVilkins, editor. At this meeting we also decided upon our class colors, purple and gold. Our first appearance in society was the Freshmen Reception, where we were royally en- tertained by the old students. Our appreciation would have expressed itself in the form of a re- turn reception, had not the plan been nipped in the bud by a stern edict of the faculty.

Much of our success was due to the energy and efficiency of our officers, who were: Virgil Vickers, president: Lois Green, vice presidentg Harold Sexton, secretaryg juanita XYilkins, treas- urer, Clinton Godlove, sergeant-at-arms, Truman Chase, editor. 1 However, it was as juniors that we began to shine in all our glory. XVe organized early in the year with the following officers: President, Paul Greeng vice president, Ruth Roche, secre- tary, Eunice Foster, treasurer, Roy XVestg editor, Jessie Dobie. The juniors were much in evi- dence in athletics, especially in football, where we won the inter-class championship. In debate, too, we were prominent, the success of two junior girls in making the teams being particularly worth notice, as they were the first girls to represent Eugene High in a period of several years. An- other junior girl won first place in the decliima- tion contest, and we figured largely in the vari- ous school organizations, always keeping our high standard of scholarship, and not neglecting basketball, track, or baseball. XVe also contribut- ed to the News. One great event of the year was the pub'ica- tion of the March issue of the News by the lun- iors, in accordance with an established custom of the school. This was quite remarkable, owing to the fact that not only the staff, but practically all the contributors as well, were members of the junior class. One laughable feature was the fail- ure of the staff, after three attempts, to secure a creditable picture. Another source of pride to the junior class was the banquet given the Seniors by the class of '13, at the Osburn hotel. A fitting end to the year was found in the junior picnic at Seavey's Ferry, long to be remembered by the class of ,13 as one of the most enjoyable affairs of our high school course. As Seniors, we determined that our numerals should prove not bad, but good luck, to the class of '13, and that we would outdo our brilliant rec- ord of the past three years. Hugh Ford was chosen class president, Eunice Foster, vice presi- dent g Ruth Roche, secretary, Harold Turner, treasurer, and Harmon Northrup, editor. Vyle again won the inter-class football cham- pionship in a close game between the Sopho- mores and Seniors, and proved our further inter- est in the game by appearing in force at Salem to help cheer on our team to victory. XVhen the Dramatic Club was organized, the majority of the places were filled by Seniors, and in the re- organization of the literary societies, the Seniors were conspicious for their numbers and enthus- iasm. Also, three of the Senior girls won dis- tinction in debate. NVith very little disagreement, the class succeeded in choosing the Senior pins, of which we are very proud, and which were or- dered in time to be worn during the entire sec- ond semester. NYe came off with flying colors in the exam- inations, keeping up our consistently high schol- arship record, and now are midway through our last semester in the dear old Eugene High. Not- withstanding the work 'entailed by Senior theses and other forms of torture, several Senior took leading parts in "Sylvia,'l the operetta given on March 8 by the Glee Club, assisted by the Boys, Chorus and Orchestra. On March 14, a masque party was held by the Senior class at the home of Dorothy XYheeler. XVith the exception of those few who were so unfortunate as to be absent, the class spent a most delightful evening, under the efficient chaperonage of Miss Dinsmore and K-lr. Fisher. XVe all succeeded in posing satisfactorily for our pictures, so much of the interest in that sub- ject has died out and we turn our thoughts else- where. Some of the class of ,Ig are training daily on the cinder path, others are planning for a final season in baseball. Still others are aspiring to the path of.glory by way of the Senior play, "The Fifteenth of january," which will be produced under the direction of Mr. Curtis. Later come the graduation festivities, then-the end. Wie will have become part of the past, not of the present, of the Eugene High School, and We will look back, fondly remembering those pleas- ures so dear to us now, which will seem so doubly dear in the future, so that "IVlzv11 Z"i77lC, that steals 0111' years away, Shui! sfeal 0z11' pleaiszzrcs, foo, The 11101110131 of the past will stay, And bygone joy 1'C7'lC"ZU.U Frances Shoemaker, '13, l 4. 5 Li-5'p.:.f.1- -all-'31 431 1 5-fr in 7 - 'i 1 , Q ' pv li. 1 5 -,J if yn, 'ti , Q, 'L Page . , .

Accordingly I set out for the abode of the Oracle of Delphi to secure the pass-word by which I was to enter the gates of Hades for my most immemor- ial visit. I found that theposition of the ancient oracle had, upon her death been ably filled by Eliza- beth Hales, on account of her ability to talk without betraying any hint of her meaning. I was delighted to see her and after a short chat, she gave me the all-important pass-word-"Hug.', As I was about to cross the Styx I noticed some- thing familiar in the attitude of Old Charon, the ferryman. On close examination I found him to be lno other than 'fDoc" Kellems, who had been given Charon's place on account of his ability as an oars- man, gained by frequent practice on the mill race in Eugene. just as we were leaving the shore three dishevelled figures ran down to us and implored "Doc" to allow them to pass over-these figures I scarcely recognized, but Charon told me they were Paul Green, Harold Wells and Hugh Ford, who were to be detained on this side of the Styx for loo years from their death because they did not have the price of the ferry fare across the Styx. Gut of compassion for them, I gave them three Lincoln pennies-the fare for the trip-and Charon grud- ingly gave them a place in his boat. On reaching the other side, I met the Fruies, Arlie Matlock, Ruth Pierce and Mildred Meresdorf. Passing on further, I beheld the Fates, Martha and Dorothy Andrews and Frances Shoemaker. just before reaching Pluto's throne, I passed Blind justice, Zetta Mitchell. Pluto afterwards told me in confidence that these women performed their tasks much more satisfactorily than the original goddesses had done. On approaching the throne room, I heard two hearty laughs and looked round to see "Pat" Koepke and George Morehouse, attired in foolis costumes, coming towards me. They were Pluto's court jest- ers and many a happy hour they succeeded in giving the King of the Underworld. Pluto received me very kindly but told me that since the advent of the class of IQI3, his arduous duties had been telling on his health and he had been forced to secure an assist- ant who now did practically all his work for him. He had selected Kate Flegal for this responsible position at the suggestion of Tanjor Black, the gen- eral manager of Tartarous and the chief advisor of his majesty. Pluto also told me that as many of the old gods and goddesses had succumbed under their heavy duties, he had been obliged to put others in their places. Floyd Ross, Otto Ross, Carson Big- bee and Roy West were the attendants and advisors of his majesty, Roy Vifest being his treasurer and special messenger. These men were chosen on ac- count oif their athletic prowess. Persephone, I found had chosen Marjory Williaiiis, Margaret Spangler and Frances Mann as her ladies in waiting. e I was next conducted to the Elysian Fields, which was presided over by Ruth Vtfestfall. The first sight which met my eyes was an old man running after butterflies. It was Harold Turner. To the left I noticed a Beauty Parlor and on entering I found it to be under the management of Blanche Roylance and Vivien Mesenger. Besides this busi- ness, they were also the designers of the court cos- tumes of her majesty and her ladies in waiting. Vivien informed me of the fact that her majesty was a frequent visitor at the parlor and that her ever blooming beauty was largely due to a patent pre- paration of hers, "Peroxide" After bidding adieu to these ladies and wishing them all my good luck, I passed on with my guide till I came to a beautiful grove. In the distance I heard strains of heavenly msuic and on approaching nearer I found it to be a celestial choir led by Jessie Dobie. The accompani- ment was played by Miriam Tinker, on the harp, and by Margaret Pratt, on the violin. The members of the choir were Dorothy W'heeler, Vera Der, flinger, Zona Vernon, Dorothy Prairie, Willette Moore, Reigh Ernst, Neil Ford, Harold Sexton, Ray Vlfells and Neil Purkeson. Passing on, I met a group of children laughing and dancing under the trees. They were attended by Gladys Asher, Velma Cook and Cecile McAlister, who had received their training for this work in the public schools of Ore- gon. As I passed them I came upon two lovers strolling along near the banks of the Lethe-F rank Scaiefe and Ruth Roche. My first impulse was to . I L g,,"z . : V- V ..5:-A-' - , L . - I ,, at .

Pugh Orrgmz I a Iiorfy-f1rr'c' hide, for I feared Frank would ask me for a write- up for the f'Hades Herald," but when I stopped for a word with them. he told me that he had resigned and given his position to Flora Hansel, whom I met shortly afterwards, sauntering down a shady lane with Rev. Gaunt, whom I remembered as a studious junior, who was in the habit of spending his spare time asking Miss Kinsey if slang expres- sions were classical allusions. VValking farther, I came to a candy store and ice cream parlor, presided over by Eileen Dill, Ethel Purdy and Myra McFar- land. At the soda counter, I saw jim Faubian and Eunice Foster. They told me that after long de- liberation on the subject they had decided that they were "affinities" I had now reached the river which separates Paradise from Tartarus, and as I crossed the bridge into the region of eternal punishment, I took a last look at the beautiful land I was leaving. Standing on the bank with their arms intertwined were Lu- cile Cook and Gladys Fisher, the two inseparables, who had lived and died together, and were now en- joying Paradise. As I passed into the realm of torture, my ears were greeted by fearful wails and moans. My cour- age forsook me at first, but gritting my teeth and clenching my fists, I went on, determining to "see Hades" to the bitter end. First I saw "jim" Furrow and Ellwyn Rutherford trying to fill a bottomless cask with water. XVhen I asked their crime I was told that while in the Elysian fields they had la- mented their lot, preferring hard work on earth to idleness in Paradise. Since it was impossible to send them back to earth. Manager Black had done the next best thing and had assigned them an end- less task. Mary O'Farrel and jessie Hartley were in Tartarus, too, but as visiting missionaries among the stricken sinners. Next I came to a steep hill. Here I saw Harmon Northrup busily engaged in rolling stones up the hill. On earth he had been a politician and had robbed so many widows and or- phans that Pluto had decreed that he should be as- signed the job formerly held by Sisyphus. Farther up the hill my eyes beheld a horrible sight. XVayne Barbour was chained, and over his head was a huge rock which threatened to fall at any moment. This punislnnent was meted out to him because at one time he thought he was President of Mexico and tried to get tl1e people to bow down to him. After having witnessed these terrible sights I thought I had seen everything that was to be seen in Hades. but I was mistaken. just at the boundary between 'Ilartarus and the castle grounds of Pluto, CI had been traveling in a circlej. was a stalwart figure standing in chin-deep in budweiser. Above his head and just out of his reach was the branch of a tree bearing pretzels, dill pickles and limburger cheese. From the famished look on his face and the valiant but vain eforts to drink the budweiser and grasp the pretzels, it was plain to all beholders that the poor fellow was dying of hunger and thirst with the means of appeasing them under his very nose, as it were, and yet unable to gratify his desire. Readers, it grieves me to tell you, but the victim of this terrible fate was Walter Carl, our well-known story-teller, who was sentenced to this punishment for flirting with two girls at once. I never found out who the girls were. This last horrible scene had made me thirsty so my guide led me back to the castle where her majesty. Persephone, ordered her cup-bearers, Mary Borin, Grace Neff and Naomi Hoskins, to serve us with ambrosia made from, rose-petals and water from the river Lethep My journey had taken sev- eral hours, and it was now growing dark so I bade my host and hostess goodby after thanking them heartily for their kindness to me. I was ferried back to earth again by "Charon" Kellems, and I thought as I left him that it would not be many more years until I should make Hades my own dwelling place. On looking back over my trip I though that even if our class has not all attained to the ranks of the blessed, at least we have succeeded in gaining fame, if not for our goodness, at least for our misdeeds.

Its success speaks well for Miss Sullivan. the director. The play itself is a delightful little pastoral- Sylvia, tired of her betrothed. wanders into a hay- field and meeting a farmer's daughter they mas- querade one for the other. The companions of Betty. the farmer's daugh- ter, try to find her and meet with the farm lads and half-promise to meet them later in the even- ing.

Sylvia and Betty return and successfully fool their new lovers-their adventures with their ex- changed lovers soon tire them and they decide to resume their real characters. This simple plot, with its many musical num- bers and solos, gave the Girl's Glee Club, assist- ed by the Boys' Glee Cluh, an excellent oppor- tunity to display their talent.

We are proud to claim such noteworthy men as Bounds, Broder and Barclay. Our girls also have manifested an unusual interest in the gym work and that their efforts were not in vain was clearly shown by the gymnastic demonstration. Along musical lines the Sophoinores, as usual, have come to the front. Our president, Albert Gillette, took one of the leading roles in the op- eretta "Sylvia,' as De Lacy. He impersonated the part well and the audience was not slow in showing appreciation of his excellent solo work. Nlany of the Sophomore girls also. were promin- ent in the chorus work. .Xgain along intellectual lines we have fea- tured in the literary work. lValdo Seman, one of the most prominent members of the boys lit- erary society, carried off the honors in a debate with the upper classnien. Mr. Sen1an's excellent work in this debate promises, for him, a grand career along this line. XYe feel that our work, as a class, has been very successful, and that under the following of- ficers we have succeeded in helping to uphold the high standard of our school: President ............... . .

It has always been the idea in the Eugene High School to make sport of the Freshmen. They have always been laughed at and pushed around in corners or anywhere else. just to keep them out of the way. Just why, no one knows or no one cares. Of course the Freshmen take all of this as part of their learning. and think very little of it. But as to our real learning, we know that we have accomplished all that can be expected of any class. 111611 XVe have kept our eyes open and have seen all that the upper classmen of this year have done, and we feel that we will stand in their places without fail, when our time comes. This year the Freshmen have stepped to the front more than any other Freshmen class in the history of the Eugene High School. NYe have learned much more than the things which we ground out of books. We organized our class, entered into the societies and took part in many other High School activities, which has been a pleasure to us. And now, that summer is here, we are sorry to have to stop our interests in the High School and to bid farewell to the Seniors who depart from us.

Black The first literary society in the Eugene High School was a mixed society founded when school was held in the old Court House. In 1900 the Amicitians organized with Alla hlosier as presi- dent. This society was for boys only, A feel- ing of intense rivalry soon grew up through the holding of joint debates. The Hypatian as the girls' society was known, opposed the Amicitians solidly but the Amicitians dominated after a struggle covering a number of years. The Pro- sonians came into existence during this time but their aim was more for the culture of social rather than literary arts. After a few years this society died a quiet death, most of its leading members having graduated. The Amicitians continued growing steadily in numbers and influence, its membership consisting of many of the most prominent students and ath- letes. The Amicitians stands for fellowship among the students through the interesting and educative weekly programs, An awkward and unsophisticated recruit after a year or so in the society is able to talk before an audience with comparative ease and comfort. Many of the schools debaters received their first training in the Amicitians. The :Xmicitians is the best lit- erary society in Eugene High as is shown by its long existencegand the good work it is doing at the present time. Oregon Hill, .

Meetings are held ev- ery other 'llhursday, and have never failed to be interesting. The program committee have done excellent work in providing picgrams of read- ings, music, extemporaneous speeches and de- bates. The most exciting meeting was when Miss Kinsey and Mr. Fisher, on the negative, won by a unanimous vote in a debate against Mr. Robin- son and Nr. Hug, on the question: "Resolved, if QS S that marriage increases the happiness of the peo- ple married." The floral offerings were very beautiful. A great deal of good can come from a so- ciety like this if the members will only take part. Don't be afraid to say something when called upon, girls, the others are not there to criticize you. The Seniors are very busy now with their theses, but the meetings are only once in two weeks, and every Junior or Senior girl should come, if she possibly can.

Ruby Bogue acted as chairman and Grace Archer as secretary. The following officers were elected: Helen Breton, president, Helen Hall, vice president, Grace Archer, secre- tary, Alta Sisam, treasurer, Miss XValton, critic, Margaret Dixon, sergeant-at-arms, Anna Dean, Artist, and Anna Taylor, Editor. Lucile Cook, Juanita Gibson and Anna Taylor were appointed as a committee to frame a constitution. Then came the arduous task of deciding upon a suitable name. Finally, after many sleepless nights, the name "Phoenix, was chosen, for this sociey had risen, so to speak, from the ashes of the old Athe- nian Society. A membership contest was begun with Ethel Newland and Ruby Bogue as captains of the two sides. So far this contest has been a decided success as each side has been determined to defeat the other, and the membership has increased very rapidly. On March 13, IQI3, the Phoenix, represent- ed by Anna Taylor and Bessie Mahoney, o fthe negative, met the Boosters, represented by Wini- fred Otteson, and Emmett Dugay, of the affirm- ative, in a debate on the question: "Resolved that two years of Latin should be required for graduation from High School. The judge's de- cision was rendered in favor of the negative. Aside from this debate, others have been held in the society, that show that we have a splendid prospect for debaters. Also some of the programs have consisted of music and literary selections, which were good. XVe have acomplished so much in these few months, one can just imagine what could be done in an entire year. Just keep watch of the Phoe- nix, it has not risen in vain.

Many new enterprises have been taken up and several old ones reviewed and given new life. One of these. and the one that has gained the greatest increase of interest and prominence. is the very important but sadly neglected. literary work. One of the first groups to respond to the ur- gent call for increased literary activity, was the Sfiphoinore-Freshmen boys. XYith great zeal and entliusiasm they entered into this new under- taking determined to make it a success. Immediately a meeting was called. officers were elected. a constitution a preamble to the effect that the object of the so- ciety was to promote all forms of public speak- ing, and develop those slumbering talents which was drawn up with everyone possesses to a more or less degree. lt was decided that the new society should meet every Tuesday and at the first meeting sev- eral names for the society were voted upon. The name "Boosters" was chosen by an overwhelming majority. and we believe it a very appropriate one. Following these first few business meetings many excellent programs were rendered and much enthusiasm was shown towards debate and partliamentary drill. ln the month of March we challenged the Phoenix l,iterary Society fwhieh is composed of the SophiimorefFreshmen girlsj. to a debating contest and they readily accepted our challenge. 'llhe question under discussion was: "Resolved that two years Latin should be required to graduf ate from ffigh School."

The outcome of the contest was that the girls defeated us, but only by a close margin. Nothing more of any importance happened .mtil we were challenged by the Amicitian Society Qcomposed of Senior-Junior boysj. Shortly after the challenge was accepted the contest was held, and a great war of words was waged. The question discussed was: "Resolved, that the mayor and councilmen of Eugene should receive a salary."

Since, in former years, there has been only one literary society, you can easily see the enor- mous progress that has been made along this line in the past few months. It is certainly encourag- ing to those who realize the vast importance of this activity, to see it so rapidly taken up and pushed ahead by the student body as a whole. Great efficiency is being attained by many of our members and we expect Eugene High School to turn out some of the best debaters and speakers of the times, who in latter years can look back and say that they had received their start from the Boosters Literary Society of Eugene High School.

The object of the association is to promote a spirit of frienrlliness and fellowship among the "all memhers and to make the Christian spirit an through the weekly one ancl not merely a Sunday religion whieh is taken off Suntlay evening anrl laifl aside till the next week rolls arouncl. The Y. XY. C.

Among these was Mrs. lilteher, general secretary of the lvniversity Y. XY. C. AX.. who spoke to us on the observance of Christmas in Germanymthis was thoroughly enjoyecl by all present. Another very interesting speaker whom we had with us was Kliss Deyoe, a returnefl missionary from China, who spoke to us ahout the gi rls' college in Fow Chow, China, where she had been a teach- er. She mafle her talk especially interesting by telling us all about Moo Uwan, the Chinese girl who hail helpecl her to learn the Chinese lan- guage. ln .Xpril the time of our weekly meetings was ehangetl from 3 :45 to the noon hour and this arrangement proyecl to he so satisfactory that from then on, we have brought our lunches on Y.

She was flresserl in a Chinese costume and gave us an impersonation of a real Chinese girl whom she hail known.

A. is sorry that theientire school could not have heard Miss Meyher, for she is a splendid elocutionist and would have delighted everyone. The activity of the the Y. VV .C. A. has not, however been confined to our weekly meetings alone-at the first of the year, a reception was held for all of the high school girls, in Miss Comings, room. Punch and wafers were served, several speeches were given by different faculty members and a general good time was had by all. This was the beginning of a membership contest led by XVilletta Moore, Gladys Rugh and Frances Shoemaker. At the close of the contest, the win- ning side, Frances Shoemaker's, was banqueted by the losers at the Presbyterian church. The girls have also given several candy sales during the year which were enjoyed by the whole school. At the end of the first semester, a Valentine Party was given to the Y. VV. by the retiring cabinet at the home of Kate Flegal. A most enjoyable time was had by all present, especially at the close of the party when "pink ice cream," cooky hearts and punch were served. The Y. VV. C. A. play also, is a function which is looked forward to by the entire High School. Last year the Y. W. C. A. play was a great success and we hope this year that we shall have even greater success. Departing from our usual plan the Y. VV. C. A. decided that instead of giving one long play, we should give two short ones. The plays. "A Man's Coiceu and "Miss Parkington," were selected by our coach, Miss X Comings, because they are interesting and catchy. The casts for the plays are as follows. For "A Man,s Voice:', Helen Hall, Lois Green, Clara Doughty, Jeanette Kletzing, Anna Taylor and Lucile Cook, and for "Miss Parking- ton:" Gladys Fisher, Frances Shoemaker, joy Iudkins and Henry Howe. VVe were very for- tunate in securing Miss Comings as our coach. She is a very able one, as was shown by her splendid work in the Y. XV. play last year. The Y.

Editor On looking over our achievements of the past year, we do not feel boastful in saying that the Y. VV. C. A. has accomplished more in different lines than any other high school organization has. VV e have combined the dramatic, the social, the culinary and the spiritual phases of our life under one society and our one hope is that the Y. XV. C. A. will continue to be as beneficial to the high school and as important a factor in the high school life in years to come as it has been in the past year. T 'r . ?. 7155: . .

In place of the cantata usually given by the club, the girls put on a little musicale comedy or operetta entitled 'iSylviaf' It was entirely new work for most of the members of the cast but under the direction of Miss Sullivan and with the help of the E. H. S. orchestra, also under Miss Sullivan's management. "Sylvia" was very suc- cessful both dramatically and financially. VVith a part of the proceeds from the play the Glee Club gave a banquet followed by a dance for the boys and orchestra, who helped in "Syl- via." The rest of the money is being kept for new music and for furnishing the music room in the new high school. At the present time the girls are practicing some music for the public school concert which Miss Sullivan is undertaking. After this concert the club will begin work on Commencement music. But the most important of all accomplished is that the club through Miss Sullivan, has taught the girls to love, appreciate and read better music.

Only a Senior can best understand his feelings for E. H. S.-he has entered as a meek little Freshman, gazed awe-struck at the "mighty Seniors' who stuttered, stage-struck though an ardous speech-became imbued with that true HT willn Eugene High School spirit and has boosted with all his-might for his school. :Xll through his four years of toil and play the hazy. meshy cords of school associations have strength- ened and tightened until their sudden severing brings 'us up to a realization that is bitter-sweet. Some of us must go from our preliminary work to fight the 'lhard fight"--to strive for our assigned positions in life's play. May all the gods of luck, and their like. be especially helpful to the class of IQI2-IQTS-110i that we especially need help-look at our High School record- but that we may reach success as quickly as pos- sible. Life is too short to delav. Some of us will continue our studies, bound still closer by our long continued companionship. And, "in fi11iSU when we are old and Udream dreams" and our class of IQI2-IQI3 is scattered and thinned, remember, with a satisfaction that is old age's privilege, your class of 1913. The New High School That educational Eugene is slowly but surely recovering from the blow dealt her by the defeat of the school bonds bill at last year's election, is self-evident-the movement on foot to secure the new school site is the first material step. The reaction is a healthy one and the people are considering the question in a fair and un- prejudiced manner, and the subject is not one to moralize over, it is an actual necessity brought on by the rapid growth of a young city, and the building of the school must be done with a far- seeing eye towards Eugene's future. The present building is not satisfactory, for. in the first place, and this reason alone should be enough-if is Weitz nom' 1110! large enough for its fvzrjvils. The schedule had to be rearranged and shortened, for the classes were too big to accom- modate in one room even with pupils sitting on the window sills. All available space for recitation rooms has been enlisted, even the reception and the confer- ence room. The heating and Ventilating are unsatisfac- tory-the school resembling a globe in its range of heat, ranging anywhere from 55 degree to 85 degrees Fahrenheit and upon this injury is added the insult of poor ventilation-freeze us if you wish but at least give us pure air-the only method by which some rooms may keep any heat whatever is to keep all the doors and windows closed-this with a faulty Ventilating system and 30 to 40 pupils per room. And if these are a few of the conditions, and I might add-sometimes stray bits of plaster il- lustrate Newton's law of universal gravitation- what will be the condition next year to teach and house them will be an impossibility-a new high school can be the only solution of the question. L.-. The Year in RBVTCW The year of IQI2-1913 is a banner year in the history of Eugene High School in every respect. The enrollment has grown out of all proportion to that of the preceding years and the enthusiasm with which the students, new and old, took up their studies and enterprises from thefirst betok- ened success. The curriculum of the school has been enlarged and many new departments have been added and the scope of the old ones enlarged through necessity. The percentage of "Hunks" ,I ' -- -' -. Page A ,, .

I N 4' 'wily-rico ' V ' OVWUH has diminished in the same proportion that the school has grown, The teachers are the best pos- sible in their work. the courses taught are the practical and desirable ones and the only draw- back on the fullest growth and development of the school was the school building itself, which is small and unsuitable to the needs of the school. This one drawback we trust will be remedied in the near future. The literary and debating societies rejuvenat- ed have shown exceedingly good records and their future seems well secured. The plan of Miss Dinsmore, of the faculty, in planning the societies of upper and lower classmen has suc- ceeded admirably. The remarkable success of all branches of Athletics and particularly football has made the past year a red-letter one in the High School's history. The footlnll team which represented Eugene High School in the contests was a re- markable one ending the season undefeated and established a valid claim to the state champion- ship. The basket-ball team had a fairly prosperous season and being defeated three times during the season and gaining three victories. but on the whole a successful season was closed March I. At the time this is written it is too early to review our track season but the outlook is bright- er for state championship than ever before. Captain Bounds. Jenkins and Skipworth are good for three first places in any interscholastic meet and with the wealth of new material which is daily turning out, the outlook is exceptionally bright. The many underclassmen who are training for the various enterprises bodes well for the fu- ture. for in past years the student would attempt nothing in athletics until his Junior or Senior year. In conclusion, may all the future years of Eu- gene High School he as successful as the past one. To ODI' T630 STS Now that our high school career is drawing to an end we can better realize the spirit of "fair play and square dealll which has always charac- terized their dealings with us. They have been more than instructors merely, but have been close friends and have given their true advice in all our troubles that we have brought before them in the course of our four years. It is generally during their Junior or Senior year that a student really comes to know his teachers, begins to realize that he has in them a real friend. lVe are carrying into our life the memory of intimate talks and real "helpful hintsi' that they have kindly given us. Perhaps nothing can make a mutual acquaint- ance of teacher and pfipil better than mutual work-and the members of the Senior Play who have worked with Mr. Curtis toward one end- the success of the play-can truly say that their association with him in this and the knowledge of the time he has cheerfully given, and work he has cheerfully shouldered, have indebted him in their minds more than anything else. To all our teachers, are we indebted in the various lines of study and activityg but for more than this-they have opened up to us a new vista of life. Woodman. Spare That Tree! One of the most striking features of Eugene were its treesg turwc, for to the shame of its citi- zens they are cutting broad-cast, these natural beauties. It is not a sign of a growing city to begin a broad-cast slaughter of its shady friends-rather is it a mark of ignorance-lack of foresight of its citizens. Z: A tree is a handiwork of God and deserves the best of your protection. A visitor summing up the pleasant features of a city, gives beautiful trees a bountiful share. Can you imagine your yard or your street without those shady trees-giving a healthy, cool on sultry days and crooning a happy melody with every breeze-have not these thoughts flashed in your mind at the falling of some splendid, gnarled tree?

Oregon. it is true, has a seemingly unending supply of timber, but it is not late enough even at the pres- ent time to take strenuous means to preserve timber. Ninety percent. of Oregon's wealth is in her timber and the reckless waste of a country's resources is bound to bring want in a future time. The cutting away of valuable timber and simply burning for the opening thus gained is an old-fashioned practice even yet practiced in some localities. The value of timber in saving a country from floods as now demonstrated by science is simple to everyone. lt is no uncommon sight even in the near locality of Eugene to see five to ten acres of timber in some back-water of along the banks of some slu0'0'ish stream froi 10' to waste. hh C '6 lb The arid flood-swept regions of Europe, show remarkably well the result of destroying the tim- ber of the country.

Owing to the crowded conditions of the high school building, occasioned by the registra- tion of 6oo students, it was necessary to erect a two-roomed building adjacent to the main struc- ture. Here the classes began with an enrollment of about ninety girls. As this was the first school work in this city of an industrial educational 1,1- ture it was viewed with especial interest. Patrons and friends of the school offered encouragement and enthusiasm. In September classes in Domestic Art were organized, and a second instructor elected to aid in the Domestic Science and Art departments. At present there are 160 girls enrolled in the cookery, sewing and home problems classes. The cookery and sewing classes meet twice a week for double periods, additional time being spent in reference reading, available through selected list of books, owned by the department, bearing on home economics. By students' efforts funds were raised for subscriptions to several periodicals, ui- cluding "Good Housekeepingl' and "Ladies' Home journals." The work in cookery comprises a study of the five food groups, including source, manufacture, relative food value, digestibility and preparation, for the table. During the second year emphasis is laid on the planning of menus and the serving of meals. The work is facilitated by a cozy dining room thoroughly equipped with linen, silver, glass and china. This together with the equipment for the cookery laboratory was a gift to the school, the donor being Mr. F. L. Chambers, a leading hard- ware man of Eugene. Occasions for experience of a practical na- ture has been afforded the students by the prepar- ation and serving of banquets to the Commercial Club, Y. M. C. A. and smaller organizations. Invalid cookery, infant diet and simple bac- teriology are also included in the course. The oak-topped tables of the cookery labora- tory accommodate twenty pupils with gas jets for each, together with other individual equip- ment.

Otlfer expenses are met by the district, a careful supervision on parts of instructors aims to keep the expense at a mini- mum. ' The classes in sewing occupy a light, comfort- able room in the main building. Ten tables offer ample room for cutting, sewing machines are provided, also a fitting room with mirror and necessary shelves. The work of the first semester is entirely hand work. Simple articles selected by the in- structor, give students opportunity to learn the stitches finishing of seams and use of good lllflff- ment in choice of materials, appropriateness and colors. Machine sewing is begun the second semester with free hand cutting and simple drafts. Slu- dents furnish their own materials. The plans are to keep the finished articles until after the home economics exhibition in April, after which they will be returned to the students. Special work is being done by third sencstei' pupils in a two period a week class. under the name of home problems. A series of discussions and lectures are followed in house construction with reference to the detailed arrangement, plan- ning, and care of the various rooms. The iris troductory lessons included a glimpse into the lives of other women from other lands. Plans for the future include a four course in home economics. The work as outlined in Do- mestic Science covers the following subjects: Cookery. laundering, home nursing, sanitation, bacteriology, inorganic chemistry, chemistry ol foods and dietetics. The Domestic Art is as fil- lows: Sewing, dress making, tailoring, basketry and weaving, house construction and decoration. and art needle work.

H HAI-P "ln the spring ai ymmf mm's fancy-- The above happy scene strikingly illustrates the climax of a period of self denial by one of the most popular of Eugene High School's faculty. For lo! these many years, in fact, ever since the publication of Dr. Yak and his famous automo- bile, R. D. Fisher felt a strange stirring in his heart, at first slight, but as time passed by and the Sundays passed with their supplements, the yearning grew to a great and powerful desire to own a really truly automobile. He dreamed dreams of honking past terrified women who would gaze in horror at this speed demon. But soon a gradual change took place-his air castles softened and he saw his likeness seated beside his dream ideal-one hand on his trusty wheel, the other-well anyway he would have his feet on the excelerator and brake. They would first parade the beautiful streets of Eugene before an admiring crowd then would hie to the highways and byways of the country, and glide swiftly and quickly over miles and miles of scenery. So he quit his dreaming and came to the practical- from the bountiful salary given he laid aside a monthly mite which grew and prospered in the wonderful fashion until, Gadzooks! his ideal was in his grasp. Vtlhen news of this historical event reached the ears of the students and faculty it was a subject of much discussion. Bought an auto! XVho, R. D? Aw, giwan! This type of English or words to its effect, were even ex- pressed by the faculty and a flittering of excite- ment and a 'lblossoming outl' of the feminine faculty was especially evident. One aspect of this happy event gives a sor- rowful future-it is destroying the peace and quiet which has hitherto existed with the faculty. The favored ones are causing pang's in the hearts of the others that they cannot help but show. But another and far more important event is looked forward to by the students as a fitting climax to a life of self-denial. lt is-well-the News will shortly open a "Marriage Column." fi 5 . 5 i, ' figs 4 '-fe, ravi' if -are as. --Aff' L: '3 "' ---SH 1' -' 4 ' :Q - hllfmef gf - b fa 'f nasal?

High School Music One of the important questions that is brought to the attention of the teaching force today is music in our High Schools. VV e measure our lives too much from a com- mercial standpoint. Are history and literature taught as stepping-stones to better living or are they taught as college entrance requirements? XV6: all have dreams of attaining a certain stand- ard and our natural impulse is to reach it by means of tl1e shortest route and least time ex- pended. lf these subjects are taught as college entrance requirements, then we blind ourselves to the true worth of living. VVe gain our goal but the aesthetic and love of the beautiful have been stunted and cramped, we have lost the greatest of all arts that of making others happy. lf, however, we find the aesthetic in history and literature how much more, and to a greater degree, will it be found in music, art and physical training. All must admit that life, in order to be well spent, must be the sublime and ethical, Can we then satisfy our inherent long- ings with the limited amount of aesthetic tem- perament culled from such subjects that border only on the ethical? Dignity will be added to music in our High Schools when placed on the same credit system as history and the Sciences. School men of to- day must admit that heretofore music has been ne- glected. In order to bring about ideal condi- tions there must be some definite courses offered students whereby they may become proficient. Such courses consisting of sight reading classes, choruses, musical appreciation, history of music and harmony. Music is one of the most social of all arts. XV hen studied in school, all have the same oppor- tunity. Is there a grander or nobler sight than to see or hear our young people adding his or her share to entertainments, or listening to three or four hundred voices in one grand chorus? It is the aim of our present High School sys- tem to give to music a standing in our curricu- lum. A standard which will be the means of bringing to our boys and girls, music not only from a technical standpoint, but music for the deeper inspirations and joys.

XV ith its accustomed energy and enthusiasm the Class of 1913 selected the manager and the coach of the play. Two bet- ter men for the positions could not have been se- lected. Mr. Bigbee has already shown his ability to cope with his duties, and Mr. Curtis, the coach, deserves great credit for the results he has ac- complished. Having one of the largest casts that the school has ever staged, it has required a large amount of work to give the individual members the points in which they require help. No one except the members of the cast can realize just how much patience and time is required in coaching a play. The members of the cast are: Lieut. Jack Wilson, army officer on fur- lough .............. Ellwyn Rutherford Ted Allen, an assistant professor . .Frank Scaiefe Dick Sherman, who becomes Peter, the Deaf Mute ..............

'3 3 ,325 1, 'A W '45, L it s A Oregon Deb EBATE during the past season of IQI3-I3 was not successful as far as state cham- pionship was concerned. Qwing to the failure of the Student Body to call an election, the manager was not elected until late in the season. On account of this, the teams were not chosen until a short time before the first de- bate, in which they were barely defeated by the team from Springfield High School. In all probability, the teams would have climbed to the state championship this year, be- ing composed of some of the best debaters the Eugene High School has ever had, if they had had the necessary time for proper preparation of their debates. Miss Ruth Westfall, the leader of the affirm- aftive team has splendid ability as a speaker, and as for convincing argument, she has no equal in any class in the school. She has taken a great interest in debating this year, and we are sure that a better leader than Miss XVestfall, could not have been found. g Margaret Pratt, the leader of the negative team, is a student from East Side High School ate llll1116fl17OllS. Although a new students, Bliss Pratt, upon her entrance here, imineliately ab- sorbed a very large amount of E. H. S. spirit and became an enthusiastic debater. Judging the past by the present, Miss Pratt must have had quite a lot of experience in debate work before coming to dear old Eugene High School. Miss Martha Beer, the colleague of the nega- tive team is a brilliant sepaker. Miss Beer, who is one of three Seniors on the teams, has taken a great amount of time from her other work and worked hard gathering material and preparing it for the debates. Those who know Miss Beer will agree with me when I say that this is one time that you can not judge a person's work by their size. "Shels small, but Oh!

This cup is a silver loving cup and is to be kept on the high school records and the names of the winning contestants engraved upon it each year. Mr. Terril in doing this hoped to incite among the high school students an interest in oratory. This is a contest for both boys and girls and everyone in high school may participate except those who have won the contest. Since IQI3 all Freshmen are coin- pelled to take part in the big try outs. Two are then chosen to represent each class. The conditions are that tl1e selection, memorized, must be in prose and there must be nothing of a humorous nature. This is quite a11 advantage over many such contests in which the contestants are required to write their own orations. ln 191 1 the first contest took place. There was not as much interest shown in the first contest as in later ones. because it was a new activity. ' The speakers this year were Jessie Dobie, Gladys Fisher, Bernice Holmes, Amy Hurlburt, Vivien Kellenis, Vera Moffat, Merle Stearns and Ruth Til- mont. Miss Dobie won the first honors, Miss Tilmont second and Miss Kellenis third. In the boys' con- test were ,Xrthur Moses, Henry Howe, Paul Dimm, Harold llunihert. blames McCallum, Bert Lombard and Kenneth Chute, Mr. Huinbert won first place, Mr. McCallum second and no third was given. ln IQl.2 the contestants for the girls were: Viv- ien lielleins. Merle Stearns, Juanita Wfilkins, Mar- ion Tuttle, Leona Clark and Kathleen Fraley. Miss Tuttle took first, Miss XVilkins second and Miss Fraley third. The boys hadn't enough participants for the try out. However, the ones taking part were: James McCallum, George Morehouse, NVinifred Otteson and :lohn Rayl. Mr. McCallum won first. .Xt the present writing the finals for the present year have not yet taken place, but great interest is being evinced and everything looks promising for the best contest that has yet taken place. The names of the contestants this year are: Girls. Margaret Beaupre, Mary Borin, Kathleen Fraley, lilizabeth Ginsey, Mildred, Mersdorf, Ethel Newland and Nettie Van Slykeg boys, Harold lVells, Tanjor Black, Sophns XVinther, Robert Patterson, Clinton Thienes, Curtis Peterson, XValter Allan, XVinifred Gtteson. l f -- -' Y 2 Y 1 ' ' A qi 21 A ' . 1 fi' ' A r Page fi.

The home of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. iVil- -liams was prettily decorated for the occasion. Boughs of Oregon grape were banked in the fire places and corners of the room which were bright- ened by clusters of spring blossoms. Large buter- flies of various hues were suspended from the ceil- ing, and teh whole softened by light shades of pink produced an effect in pretty harmony with the first days of spring.

The surprise production was the offering of Thursday night, April 17, at the Alpha Tau Qmega chapter house. The members of the cast were all properly rehearsed in the respective roles and the impromptu climax came off without a hitch. Miss Young was SL1111- moned to the scene on some pretext and when she arrived the stage was in total darkness. But sud- denly the switch was turned on and the central figure of the serio-comic conspiracy apepared in the spot-light with the talent enacting their respective roles as merry jesters. It was a complete surprise and the ensuing merriment and pleasure was un- bounded. The rooms were profusely adorned with purple and white streamers. The fire place was banked in ivy intermingled with wild Easter lilies. In a neat speech Miss juanita VVilkins thanked the members of the cast for their clever portraitures of the roles assigned them in the production, the many people outside of the club who aided in so many ways. and closed by presenting Miss Young with a box of candy with a check for twenty-five dollars neatly folded in with the morsals of sweet-meats in recognition of the recipient. The evening was whiled away in tripping the mystic measures of the dance. The committee in charge of the arrangements of this charming affair consisted of Miss juanita lVilkins, Miss jessie Dobie, Mr. Paul Dimm and Mr. Harold Turner. Following were the partici- pants of the affair: Mr. and Mrs. Frederic Thorne, Mrs. A. F.

Green streamers floated from the ceiling down the sides of the hall-the programs were green. and even the punch proved to be of 'the bright emerald hue. PIC Pk ak Pk A banquet given for the cast of f'Sylv1a" at the Osburn Hotel was fittingly called by Miss Sullivan the "Coda of Sylvia." The decorations were carried out in the high school colors.

The team won every game in which it engaged by large scores totaling 204 points to 6 against us. XYe defeated Salem, the first time a victory has been wrested from either team on their own field. Due praise must be accorded Mr. ,lohnson for the sacrifice of time and energy he has given to the coaching of the players. Per- sisting i11 his efforts. zealously he has devoted himself to teaching green-horns the rudiments of' football and perfecting the finer points of a vet- eran. Anyone who knows the twists and turns of a good team will say that Mr. Johnston as coach is the best yet. On election day. lfugene met the heretofore invincible Astoria eleven whose title was undisa puted having defeated both Lincoln and Jefferson Highs of Portland. The field was wet and slip- pery which did not hinder the boys from running up a score of zo to o. The team took passage for Salem on Neveni- ber 16, accompanied by many enthusiastic root- ers. The Salem lads put up a strong fight as tradition was not to be broken on their gridiron at least if they could help it. It was a "survival of the fittest' and we won I3 to O, after the hard- est game of the season. The Salem High School tendered us a most enjoyable reception in the evening and we arrived home a tired but happy crowd after a memorable day in the history of athletics between the Salem and Eugene High Schools. The last contest of the season was with Van- couver, who had played a tie game with Astoria earlier in the month. Vancouver has most al- ways defeated Eugene in past years and they were confident of doing it again. The first half was very uninteresting and with neither side able to score.

Mr. Johnston has again acted in the capacity of coach and well has he filled the posi- tion. The success of the team was largely due to him and witlr his thorough knowledge of track training and his faculty of handling men, he has brought the team far above the usual standard. Captain Bounds made some records for the school, winning second place in the broad jump at the Pacific Coast Tntersdiolastic Meet. first in broad jump, open, at the Columbia Indoor meet and the initial position at the University of Ore- gon Interscholastic meet. Manager Titus han- dled the finances well and won out even though he had a losing game to play. Only by hard work and business tact could this have been accom- plished. -- Pacific Coast Iizfersrholtisfic Seven athletes, through training and suffi- cient athletic ability to warrant their making a suitable showing, earnedithe trip to Berkeley, California to compete there with high school men from the whole Pacific Coast in the University of California's Interscholastic Field and Track meet. They brought home, honor-Eugene High being the only school outside of California to win a point. Our most capable captain, Frank Bounds, won second place in the broad jump, failing of first by only a quarter of an inch. Ross and Titus qualified in the 440 and discus throw, re- spectively but failed to place by only small mar- gins. Jenkins qualified in the preliminaries of the 220 and 100 yard dashes but lost out in the semi finals. The fellows making the team were Captain Bounds and jenkins in the spirits, Ross in the middle distances, Wfest in the distance, Manager Titus and Good in the weights and Newman in the 440 yard swim.

The track was in excellent condition, but the time was slow due on the part of Corvallis to lack of close compe- tition. Captain Bounds was individual point winner with ZIM points, taking four first he- sides running in the half mile relay. Moses of Corvallis, was next with IQ and XVest of Eugene third with 15, The "dark horse" of the meet was Bond of Eugene, who without experience crossed the har at IO 3 inches in the pole vault.

The track was wet and slippery, and in so bad shape in fact that the 100 yard dash and i X high hurdles were run on the center of the grid- iron to make better time. Captain Bounds, Ross, Tluirkelsen, VVest and Skipworth qualified in the preliniinaries of the morning. In the afternoon the track had become worse due to a drizzle of rain that fell during the entire morning. The events of the meet were carried on in good order with so'nethinQ' doing all the time. The most interesting race of the track meet proper, except- ing the relay, was the 440 yard dash in which Ross and Thurkelsen took second and third. Ross Malarkey, the winner, to the tape and Thurkel- sen coming down the straight away a close third made a sensational impression on the Eugene fol- lowers of the Qlympic sport. XVith Captain Bounds first in the broad jump the Eugene High School spectators could hardly restrain their en- thusiasm and lVest's victory in the javelin came as a fitting climax to a successful day. '4Brick" hurled the spear 142 feet 412 inches, establishing a new record in that event, and well has he earned the golden medal. bv his consistent training and perseverence. NVe all regret that the relay cup could not be in the Eugene High School trophy case but our boys ran a wonderful race even though handicapped by loss of one of the regular men. Skipworth started the relay but Malarkey of Columbia succeeded in getting a 5 yard lead of him, Ross and Thurkelsen narrowed down the distance consistently and Bounds in the finish gave Goreczky of Columbia a hard race, finish- ing hardly a foot behind him.

Ninety Oregon TQKKN2-K 'ik Q apartment of Pnysical Training 'i he object of gymnastics in our schools is primarily a hygienic oneg it is an effort to mgtin- tain the health of the pupils at the highest possible level, in spite of the evil influences of a too one- sidegl mental training coupled with the sedentary habits which usually accompany a students life. Gymnastics do not labor merely for the future, by enlarging and strengthening the chest, by fa- cilitating the performance of every function, and otherwise contributing to the general health. Exercise acts immediately upon the state of the body, which force it renews, and upon the nerv- ous system, which it tempers. It has a happy effect upon studies, because it reestablishes the mental equilibrium and at the same time gives the mind more vigor and elasticity. The aim of any system of gymnastics is nec- essarily to improve the condition of the individual in a physical, mental and moral sense. The German system, with its emphasis upon muscular strength, and the Delsarle Culture, with its em- phosies upon psychology and the training of the will, judgment and character, are two of the various systems taught in the schools of this country. The Swedish system of pedagogical gymnastics aims to harmoniously train and de- velop all parts of the body in order that it may be an efficient servant of the will. lt does not propose to create great muscular strength, but but only tends to correct faulty and incorrect positions, the results of bad habits of standing, sitting, or walking, so common during the grow- ing age and in school desk life. Besides these elements, there is a faulty educational feature- a training of the nervous system for the exercises used are such as the demand exactness of mus- cular co-ordination, each movement and posi- tion being defined in every detail. If to these we add that most of the positions are taken in re- sponse to a command requiring an instantaneous execution, and when the exercises are serial, the rhythm is kept up by the girls, own sense of rhythm, it must follow that alertness of percep- tion, quickness of action, a keep posture sense, a light degree of co-ordination and power of in- hibition-in a word, a greater volitional con- trol will be the result of the training. The Swedish system is in vogue, in most of the colleges and High Schools in the United States. The aesthetic element in the Swedish system has not been fully developed, but essen- tially the aim is to foster a sense of rhythm and Fnqmc' """""f' 5154 "' H' Nzzztfv out W f "Kyla-' 71,191 -.'i,fl?:f1:l'.:Q"' W" WV 'Sill Mir? wi? if "W i . 1 .4 Omgon 9 h 5- P0111 5. . ,.,.. . ., ,, Wy, 7 1 J A - - grace of movement.

'L - D T i J ' 4, ALUCN On leaking' over our exchange list of the past year we find that we have a large number of high schools represented, among them some of the best in the lvnited States. There are many high schools which have tleir papers in the field for the first time and to them we extend our wishes for success in their work. lfxchanges are a part of a paper which is not only a pleasure to a school but also a help. An exchange sometimes helps to raise the standard of a school paper where something else will not. Many times high schools are judged by the kind of work appearing in their papers. Thus we can see that we should work each time to put out a better paper than the time before. Our athletic strength and also our literary ability is shown in a paper. As a matter of fact many high schools which we thought little about have made us take notice of their work through their splendid papers. Our exchange list has papers this year from many of the leading states of the Lvnion, and some from foreign countries, as. HBellerivian,,' Vevey, Switzerland: " Boone Review," China, and one from Juneau, Alaska, "The Totem." In mentioning the different ones, we are bound to put those of our own state first and we have a greater number from Oregon than from any other state.

I Mr. Tubby XVheeler: Yes. Dickey Birds are to be found in your locality. Probably thc one you saw is a young one. Miss Kathleen Fraley: Yes. On a play like that Clubbs are always trumps. Miss Nell Sullivan: No. The Armstrong method has proved a positive fail- ure in cleaning skirts. Mr. YVallace fjanitorlz My Dear Sir: It is quite true. janitor work is harmful to hair growth.
