Up! let us venture , pulses bounding , Into the heart of life once more. P.L. Sleep no more , love , sleep no more! A, IKope and a belief T HE reveille is a signal usually sounded by bugle or drum at sunrise summoning soldiers or sailors to the day ' s duties. It is a fitting title to a publication that reflects the thought and spirit of a body of students. It suggests action, conquest, victory. But unlike the soldier of the battle field, whose duty is to slay and destroy, the student ' s call is to a life of construc- tive service in the r anks of the army of peace. It is his task and his privilege to make of the commonplace affairs of life a romance as rich and as rare as may be recorded in the annals of war. He will not be led forth by beat of drum or blare of trumpet; and when the day’s action is done he may not be heralded as a hero; but his victory will be none the less assured and a large part of his compensation and his greatest joy will be in the consciousness of the service he has rendered. With inspiration and power drawn from the hallowed asso- ciations of college days it is a sincere hope and a firm belief that the Senior Class of Nineteen Hundred Fifteen, of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School will sound the reveille of a higher and a better civilization in Kansas, our beloved commonwealth.

The building will serve as a general utility building. It will house the blacksmithing, engineering, carpentry, agriculture, applied arts, and music. The audi- torium, in a few minutes time, can be converted into a gym- nasium. By removal of the floor, which is made in sections, the auditorium can also be converted into an arena or live stock pavilion for stock or other agricultural shows. It is the expectation of the state architect, Mr. Chandler, that the building will be ready for service in about one year. 17 oar6 of -Administration HD. T. HACKNEY MRS. CORA G. LEWIS E. W.

" T) 55 3ust before (Tlass ’ Oh, what would the world through the long ages do In its haste, were it not for the Juniors? When the Seniors all come and the Seniors all go, Then the world says “Hello” to the Juniors. In the next year to come, noble Seniors they’ll be, With their manuscripts, paper and pen, It is now by the wisdom in store that they know What a pleasure their school days have been! They have striven through the school days to learn How to work without showing a frown; But the days yet to come, when they face all the world, Are the ones full of fame and renown. When teachers they are in the schools of t he West, Telling all of the ways that prevail, When they rule all the school in a sociable way. Then they’ve written “Success” on their “sail.” F. W.

Brown Lulu Meyer Milton Blackman 59 Senior 3figl)s ‘15 A MONG the classes enrolled in the Fort Hays Normal School there are two that are highly respected by the Faculty and student body. They are the Senior College and Senior High School Classes. The Senior High School Class of 15 has clearly established its right to this respect. While Sophomores it set a precedent by winning the inter-class track meet. During their Junior year they were a staid and dignified body until the Seniors of ’14 precipitated a feud which ended only when the Juniors avenged their wrongs by administering a coat of black to the boys of the Senior Class. The Senior year of this great class has been one of succeeding triumphs. At the beginning of the school year when the student body began looking about for a chairman of Student Assembly their attention was directed to this class. A member of this class was chosen to fill the office of chairman. The remarkable part was that this was the first and only time a girl was ever chosen for this position. A member of the Senior High School Class was also chosen chairman of the Student Assembly for the closing ten weeks. The Senior College Class furnished the chairman for the remaining terms. This shows that the student body has placed the Senior Highs on the same plane which the Senior College Cl ass occupies. The Fort Hays Normal School is expecting great things of this Senior High School Class. As one glances over the roll of names of the class mem- bership and notices the names of the following already illustrious persons: a cartoonist beside whom Bud Fisher is a novice; in music, a tenor, who is sur- passing Caruso; an alto who is winning Schumann-Heink’s laurels, and a poet destined to head the list of great American verse writers; he cannot help but feel that no achievement is beyond the reach of the Senior High School Class of 1915. 60 61 JUNIOR NORMALS Junior Normals COLORS FLOWER Purple and White.

Appeal to the pioneer for his story has brought forth many excellent accounts of the early days. Books, magazine and newspaper articles relative to Kansas and Western life have come in from various parts of the State. Chief among the collections we have received is the donation made by Charles R. Green of Olathe, Kansas. The Charles R. Green Histori- cal Collection consists of 1,200 volumes of rare books on Kansas history and Western life. This collection is invaluable for some of the books cannot be replaced. A few of the books are: Wilder’s Annals, first edition of Custer, My Life on the Plains, Kansas magazines, the first six volumes of the Historical Collections, and a diary kept by Mr. Green while on the Union Pacific Survey Ex- pedition in 1867-68. I he above picture shows Mr. Green as he appears today. He is now 70 years old. His life has been a long and eventful one. He enlisted in the army when sixteen years old and served to the end of the war, in which he was wounded four times. He came to Kansas in 1867, when he immediately joined the Union Pacific Survey party which made the first preliminary sur- vey on the 35th parallel from Fort Wallace, Kansas, to the Pacific Coast. This expedition was at Hays in June, 1867, when the flood swept away Custer’s Camp. Mr. Green returned to Kansas by way of the Panama. With the exception of six years, Charles R. Green has been in Kansas since 1868. He has been an industrious and hard working man, making his children a comfortable home and giving them an education. Next to the care of his family, Charles R. Green s efforts were directed to preserving the records of his own times. For forty years he has been collecting and editing this material, sparing neither time nor money, until today he has collected one of the largest private historical libraries in Kansas. He has published seven volumes and is at work on an additional one. I he Fort Hays Normal School and the people of Western Kansas are es- pecially fortunate in having this valuable collection placed at their disposal. 1 he work of Charles R. Green will live on, and the heart of the Kansas youth will beat faster; his aspirations grow higher and his character ennobled by the records of the deeds of our pioneer forebears who struggled here to preserve us a nation. 73 DOMESTIC SCIENCE CLASSES Domestic Science ‘Wc may live without poetry, music, and art; We may live without conscience and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks.’ Believing these lines of Meredith ' s to be true, F. H. N. is endeavoring to do her share toward making efficient cooks and housekeepers. Within the last year one hundred fifty girls have taken Domestic Science in our school. One feature of the work is class serving in which dainty and appetizing as well as wholesome and nutritious meals are served to groups selected from the Senior Class. The menus are planned so that the expense will come within a certain limit. Members of the serving class act as host and hostess. The following banquets and luncheons were planned, prepared and served by the department: President ' s Luncheon; Dentist ' s Luncheon: Editor ' s Luncheon; Golden Belt Alumni Banquet; Junior-Senior Banquet; Business Men ' s Banquet; Annual Alumni Banquet. This year a complete laundry equipment has been added to the Depart- ment, making a model laundry wTich could be arranged in the home. This provides for laboratory work along with the class lectures. 75 DENTISTS ' LUNCHEON DOMESTIC SCIENCE LUNCHEON 76 HOME NURSING ROOM LAUNDRY 77 4 ! DOMESTIC ART CLASSES Domestic .Arts T HE Domestic Art Departm ent occupies a light, pleasant room on the third floor of the Industrial Building. The room is well furnished with cutting tables, sewing machines and other equipment suitable for the work. The Department strives to teach the practical problems that confront a girl in her selection and care of a wardrobe. For this purpose certain days are set aside as mending days, the girls bringing articles of their wardrobe from home to be mended. When Mr. Malloy called upon the Domestic Art Department to make cos- tumes for “ I he Chimes of Normandy, " each girl of the Department responded with a generosity characteristic of the students of the Fort Hays Normal School. Sixteen peasant costumes were soon made. It is the hope of the Department that a full line of costumes for staging and school purposes can be made. 1 he textile class for this year is endeavoring to solve some of the problems l n the high cost of living by becoming acquainted with textile materials, their manufacture, cost, and the economic conditions under which they are produced- Not forgetting that this school is training teachers, there is also a class for those who wish to obtain the best methods of presenting the subject to classes of girls. Then in order to provide work for idle hands during the summer vacations, there is a class in fancy work in which embroidery, crochet- ing, and the ever popular tatting are taught. 79 CLASS IN MANUAL TRAINING CLASS IN MECHANICAL DRAWING 80 ttanual -A,rt$ A N old saving is, “You can ' t saw wood with a hammer. " It is the wise guy that applies the wise saw. See? A few cuts have been made in this department not intended for the Annual. Some of them bled but we are not knocking. A few drops of heart s blood in a good cause waters and nourishes sprouts. Some are even sprouting whiskers to look old enough to take the field next fall. Let us hope that the season will not take a fall out of their hopes. The department has done the best mechanical drawing in its history. A school dental chair, portable, folding and adjustable was designed by the di aw- ing class and worked out, by one of the manual training classes. It was ex- hibited before the Golden Belt Dental Association and pronounced 0 . . Walter Stephenson, assisted by Herman Dreiling deserve special mention lor its construction. The usual number of useful articles such as bread cutting boards, necktie racks, music racks, foot stools, etc., have been constructed with about average degree of skill. More shaving cases were made this year than during any previous year, but Ramsey made a table. Geo. Kutina deserves special mention for an office desk, Stanley Ghittenden for a baby s play house. Fort Hays Normal had the distinction, in February, of supplying Detroit with a teacher of Manual Training at $1 ,300. 1 hey would not let Mr. Hopper graduate, but called him at once. Mr. Blaine E. Sites, whose tall form was called to Bunker Hill will be a monument in Manual Arts for F. H. N. there. Will McCarthy made a success in Osborn and is engaged to return. Inquiries are coming in concerning cost of equipment and maintenance from nearby towns and prospects for more business along the industrial lines in education are good. 81 82 1116 Tarm Ztecfyanics T HE work of this department is intended to help the boy on the farm to operate and keep in repair all farm machinery. He can sharpen a plow, babbitt a loose boxing, or run an engine. The department has four stationary engines, one steam engine, two gas tractors, and one steam tractor for study and practice, in actual operation. The student also assists in operating and keeping in repair the school heating, lighting, water and irrigating systems. I hus the student has oppor- tunity to do the things actually met in everyday life. 83 STOCK JUDGING CROPS 84 iDqparlmeitt of .Agriculture A GRICULTURE as taught in the Fort Hays Kansas Norma l School, is not to produce Professional Agriculturists or for research work, but to give the student enough of the scientific principles that are involved in the subject, that he may obtain something usable in practical every-day ser- vice at home : to educate the teacher that he in turn, may give in his classes the fundamental truths that underlie the subject. In this state, agriculture is the foundation of all industries. I herefore to the farmer is left the problem, which he is daily solving, that is, farming in bushels rather than in acres. I hus it is important that he should know ' something of the soil management, crops adapted to meet the climatic condi- tions as well as the soil, selection, breeding and feeding of farm animals, the value of the orchard and home gardening, the improvement of the farm home and buildings. With this knowledge of agricultural truths, he may gain the inspiration to place the farm home at a center of influence for true living in his community. In 1914, our Agricultural Department, operated a seven-acre garden, which for the coming season has been given over to the students of the school. Besides the financial business training they will receive much practical knowl- edge in gardening. In the Soils Laboratory work the student learns the physical properties of the soil, methods of improving the fertility of the soil, methods of irrigation. In Crops, samples of different classes are studied and collected for future use. In Animal Husbandry, various types of farm animals are studied by scoring animals on the Experimental Farm which joins the campus. 85 CLASSES IN PHYSICAL AND NATURAL SCIENCES GROUP OF COMMERCE STUDENTS MATHEMATICS CLUB 87 88 Ol)e Short (Tourse O UR Third Annual Farmer s and Housekeeper’s special course was offi- cially opened November 30, and closed the evening of December 19, 914. Over 3,000 people assembled on the campus to hear the opening address, by Governor George H. Hodges and the address by Dr. Wm. A. McKeever of the State University. The pageant representing different stages in the development of Western Kansas, the Auto Polo game, and the Operetta “Japanese Girl’’ were other features of the opening day. The farmers were especially interested in the poultry show of the Golden Belt Poultry Association, the Golden Belt Horse Show, and the demonstration of steam and gasoline tractors. The short course aside from its benefits to the farmers and their wives, was in reality a great community center in which the student himself partook went to school to the class room with his father and mother, rubbed elbows with them at the laboratory table, and went to school to the same teachers at the same time. In addition to the Fort Hays Normal instructors, the faculty for this special course consisted of seventeen specialists from the Kansas State Agri- cultural College, President Waters and Dean Jardine, one lecturer from the University of Kansas and three from the State Board of Health. The manu- facturing companies furnished three engine demonstrators. The Annual Short Course has proven to be one of the most successful means of serving our constituency as well as the student on the campus. 89 Obe Cxtension Service T HE Fort Hays Kansas Normal School believes that it should serve the state outside its own school population as well as its students. It be- lieves also that its students will best be able to serve the communities to which they go if they learn by actual experience in school, the practice of service to the needs of communities. In fact, it believes that education con- sists in learning to live in the way one will be expected to live after school is “out With these two things in mind, the school is doing the following things: It conducts a correspondence department by means of which students and teachers may make credits while teaching or otherwise engaged away from school. It furnishes a lecture course to any community desiring the same. This course consists of lectures, scientific demonstrations, illustrated lectures, and musical entertainments. It furnishes lectures and addresses for teachers meetings and commence- ment exercises; also judges for contests. The library sends out books, pamph- lets and magazines to teachers, debators and educational organizations. The Normal has sent out during the past year a Musical Company con- sisting of Mr. and Mrs. Malloy, Mrs. Wooster and Mr. Obert. For schools having stereopticons, lantern slides on almost any subject are furnished at the cost of transportation. Mr. Bird and Mr. Wooster have carried a stereopticon, lantern slides, and a Victrola to the country schools in the vicinity of Hays and have furnished lectures and entertainments to these country communities. The seed testing service is excellently equipped to test seeds for adulter- ation, etc., at no cost to the farmer desiring the same. The Boys ' and Girls’ Club movement is rapidly spreading throughout the United States. The Fort Hays Normal School is ready to help any county get this work started. The Ellis County boys and girls are to have a County Fair in the autumn of 1915 at which they will exhibit the products of their summer efforts. Other wide-awake counties are going to do the same. These items of extension service are in operation. Others are soon to be started. 90 m m iiuair ra Ni I W Student Quartet Julius Johnson, Second Tenor Lew Wallace, First Tenor Alphonse Brun ardt, Baritone Harry Stock, Bass 94 “Creation Chorus” Mr. H.

Clark THE YEAR’S WORK OF THE CLUB The debaters and would-be debaters met in room eighteen last September and organized. The regular meeting was Monday evening of each week. The debate class held forth until the beginning of the second Semester. The faculty debate adviser then abandoned the club because other duties demanded his time. No meetings were held during the Second Semester. Every member of the club appeared on the platform at least twice a month. Much practice in debating was obtained. The tryouts for the inter-normal teams began after the Christmas vacation. The first one resulted in A. F. Bicker. Dora Groff, Roy Slagle, Carrol Whisnant, J. P. Callahan. E. H. Cummings, Walter Stephenson, and Bert Clark being selected. These in turn contested for the honor of representing the Fort Hays Normal School on the Inter-Normal teams The winners in the final contest on Feb. 1st were J. P. Callahan. E. H. Cummings, Walter Stephen- son, and Bert M. Clark. It is worthy of notice that no judge in this final contest ranked one of these men lower than fourth place. These four were unanimously chosen to represent the school. The judges in both contests were: Miss Dora E. Grass, W. W. Sullivan, C. A. Shive- ly, J. S. Bird, Ge o. R. Tilford, and E. B. Matthew. Bert M. Clark was awarded the W. A. Lewis Gold Medal for Debate. This medal is given annually to the person who ranks highest in this final contest. The winner cannot compete for it a second time, although he may compete for a place on the teams. The Emporia Normal School, due to previous contracts, did not compete in debate this year with the Pittsburg and Fort Hays Normal Schools. The Inter-Normal debate was there- fore a dual one between the two latter. The question was submitted by Pittsburg and is, “Resolved that the United States should adopt a system of compulsory arbitration for the settlement of all labor disputes.” Fort Hays had the affirmative here and it had the negative at Pittsburg. The home team was composed of E. H. Cummings, leader, and J. P. Callahan. The nega- tive team which made the trip to Pittsburg consisted of Walter Stephenson leader, and Bert M. Clark. Both debates were on April 9th. Judge J. C. Ruppcnthal was chairman of the local contest. The judges were: Prof. E. D. Schonbcrger of Washburn. Prof. M. L. Kirk- patrick of Manhattan, and Prof. W. L. Burdick of Kansas University. The judges at Pittsburg were: Supt. Barbee. Nevada, Mo., Pres. W. L. Carrington, of the Springfield Normal, and Prof. V. C. Coulter, of the Warrensburg Normal. The home team lost the decision two to one. The team which went to Pittsburg won two to one. Three times during the year social functions supplanted argument. The first event was the charming Christmas social which the girls of the club gave in honor of the boys at the home of Miss Ethel Sites. The second was the test-party given by the faculty adviser at his home. The third was a luncheon given to the Pittsburg and Fort Hays teams who contested at Hays. At this. President and Mrs. Lewis, the judges, and Mr. Bird were also present. P. Casper Harvey is faculty adviser. 103 INTER-NORMAL DEBATE TEAMS Crace E. Copeland Winner of Stale Oratorical Contest 104 Orator? Winner cf the E. B. Matthew Gold Medal for Oratory Winner of State Oratorical Contest Grace E. Copeland At a meeting in Topeka at the National Hotel with Prof. F. L. Gilson of the Emporia Normal School, Prof. O. P. Dellinger of the Pittsburg Normal School, and Prof. P. Caspar Harvey of the Fort Hays Normal School, present, was the first step of this school into the realm inhabited by Webster, Cicero and William Jennings Bryan. Tentative arrangements were then entered into and a tentative Inter-Normal Forensic League formed. Each school was to select its own orator and the three would compete on April 2nd at Emporia for the honor of representing Kansas at the Inter-State Oratorical Contest to be held in Wisconsin. The local contest was held on January 25th. The judges were E. B. Matthew. L. D. Wooster, and H. E. Malloy. Six orators competed. Dee Lambert presided. Miss Grace E. Copeland won the contest, Bert M. Clark was second, and Roy D. Slagle third. This was the first oratorical contest held here in many years. It was a decided success. By winning first place Miss Copeland also was awarded the E. B. Matthew Gold Medal for Oratory. This medal is awarded annually. The winner cannot compete for it a second time. Miss Copeland had very little time to prepare for an Inter-Normal contest. Realizing her short time for preparation she made her every stroke count. Around the character and personality of Jacob Riis she wrote her oration. As the Reformer of the great and wicked city. New York. Riis won a place in the hearts of the American people. That place and the reason for it. Miss Copeland made the theme of the oration. Its subject is, “The Prophet of the New Freedom. ' The Inter-Normal contest was first set for April 2nd; at the request of Emporia the date was changed to April I Oth. Miss Copeland received first place in the State Oratorical Contest and will represent Kan- sas in the 20th Annual Inter-State Oratorical Contest to be held at LaCrosse, Wisconsin, Mav 5. The winner in this contest will receive $50 in gold and a $25 gold medal. The States competing arc Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. Mr. A. E. Woodruff, a Senior in the Emporia Normal School, w ill be Miss Copeland’s manager. The State Oratorical Contest for next year is to be held at Pittsburg. A student repre- sentative from Fort Hays Normal School will be president of the Kansas League of Normal Schools. P. Caspar Harvey is faculty adviser in oratory. MEDALS AWARDED DURING THE YEAR The W. A. Lewis gold medal for Debate. Given annually to the person who wins first place in the final debate contest. The E. B. Matthew gold medal for Oratory. Given annually to the winner in the oratorical contest. The P. Caspar Harvey gold medal for prose composition.

Naturally the teachers are the leaders in this movement. In order that the students of F. H. N. might he efficient to take up the work when they leave school, the Faculty organized a “Social Center Movement " in the Institution. This movement was begun in 1912 and has gained in force and scope as it grew in years. Thursday morning s General Assembly time was given over to the students. They adopted a constitution and elected officers. The offi- cers consist of a Chairman, and First and Second Vice-Chairmen; these are called the executive committee. A yell-master is elected, also, whose duty is to hold “pep“ meetings and lead the yells at the athletic meets. The executive committee holds office for ten weeks while the yell-master serves for the school year. The executive committee working under the direction of a faculty adviser, prepares a program for every Thursday morning. The programs consist of numbers that cover the phases of school activities. The training provided by these programs is invaluable to the student. Because of the benefits derived from these assemblies we hope that they will continue to be a feature in our School until we are all well equipped to go and successfully carry out the movement wherever time may place us. 109 president’s J)a? T HE first annual President’s Day at the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School was celebrated February 4th. The Day was presented as a surprise to President Lewis and he knew nothing of it until he arrived on the cam- pus that morning. The Day was opened by the firing of the twenty-one guns of the Presiden- tial Salute. As President Lewis, his party, and P. Caspar Harvey, the presid- ing officer of the day, approached the Normal Auditorium, the Presidential Aide, E. H. Hull, blew the bugle assembly call. The audience arose and the Normal band played “Hail to the Chief.” The unfurling of the Presidential Pennant was the signal for the first gun of the salute. Among the numbers of the President’s Day Program were President Lewis’ favorites, “Nature’s Adoration’’ by Beethoven, “If” by Kipling and “The House by the Side of the Road” by Foss, the “Pilgrim ' s Chorus " from Tannhauser by Wagner, and “Makers of the Flag” by Franklin K. Lane. A luncheon in honor of President Lewis was prepared by the Domestic Science Department. The guests were President Lewis and the Faculty. A recital was given at six p. m. by Miss Anne E. Allen and Walter E. Obert. One number of the program was the “Fort Hays March, " composed by Mr. Obert especially for the occasion and dedicated to President Lewis. The President’s Day Dinner was given at seven p. m. by the Normal Din- ing Club in honor of President Lewis. The Faculty and their wives were pres- ent. P. Caspar Harvey acted as toastmaster. The following toasts were responded to: “Kansas,” “Kansas Schools, “Looking Forward, " “Our Opportunity, " “The Future, I he Faculty, “Ask Mr. Bieker,” “The Neglected Things,” “The Fort Hays Bacillus, F he Last Year,’’ “The First Year Here, " “The Alumni,’ “Athletics, " “How Do You Do. ‘‘Every-day,’’ “Grins,” “He Asks That We Do Our Best,” and “Beginners. The in absentia response of Governor Capper to the toast “Kansas was read by Mr. Matthew. The Response follows in full: “ Mr . Toastmaster , Ladies and Gentlemen : “First, 1 want to assure you that it is an honor, most highly appreciated by me, to be permitted to participate, even by proxy, in your President’s Day pro- gram. It is indeed a pleasure to send to President Lewis my warmest greetings and best wishes and to congratulate him on account of this day which I under- stand was dedicated to him as a token of the esteem in which he is held. I con- gratulate him upon the most able manner in which he is administering the af- fairs of the school : 1 congratulate all of you upon the success which is coming in so merited a measure to your splendid institution, and I congratulate both the President and the State upon the efficient corps of co-workers who do their full part in making the Fort Hays Normal School an institution of which all Kansas is proud. “I believe your Toastmaster asked me to send you a few words about Kansas. He could have selected no subject nearer my heart and no subject about which I would rather talk to you did not other matters make it impossible for me to greet you personally on this occasion. “I believe I know my Kansas — like a book, I was about to say — more than that, I know my Kansas like my life, because Kansas has been and is the very life of me. All that I have in this life; all that I have accomplished, or ever hope to accomplish; all that I am; and all that I can expect, hope or pray to be, I owe to this good state of Kansas, where I was born, where I live, and beneath whose sod I shall lie after life is over. ‘Let me say here that I yield to no man in my love for this state. It is my birthplace. I was born in Kansas, at a time when it required considerable nerve to be born in Kansas. I was taught, from my cradle, to love my state, and 1 rejoice that there is no place in all this broad republic, nor in all this wide world, where I would rather have been taught state pride and the lessons of right citizenship. “I love my state because 1 believe it to be the fairest and the richest domain of this earth, backed by matchless record on every page of which is progress. It was fostered and built by resolute, broad-minded men whose courage and energy and fortitude have been tested as no other men in this country; because it has been pre-eminently the home of the great middle class — that God-fearing people that, neither drunk with wealth nor embittered by poverty, shall lift up the suffering and control the strong; because it has always been the foremost ex- ponent of progress and advancement in morals, civilization and science of government. “Kansas is destined for larger things. She has still a grander mission to fulfill. The achievements of the past are but an index of her future possibilities. Her geographical position; her fertile soils; the wealth of her minerals; her in- vigorating climate, are the natural and physical reserves upon which she can draw, and the character and the energy of the people are the potent forces which will mould her future CLASS IN TEACHERS’ TRAINING Obc Oeacber’s Orainirtg School T HE Fort Hays Kansas Normal School and the Board of Education of Hays City, entered into a contract last summer by which the Normal uses the City School for a Pedagogical Laboratory. Mr. C. A. Shively, Professor of Education, supervises the City Schools. This unique arrangement gives the Normal excellent opportunities for teacher training in all the grades from the Primary through the High School, and the City School much better supervision than heretofore. The Fort Hays Normal School is the only Normal College in the United States, having a complete city system of Grade and High Schools for a Teacher’s Training School. The Montana State Normal and Fitchburg, Massachusetts Normal have similar arrangements with grade schools only. The benefit of this agreement is mutual. The City School saves $1 ,500.00 per year for Superintendent’s salary and secures free of charge, additional in- struction in the following departments: Public School Music, Physical Edu- cation and Coaching of Athletic Teams. Also several classes of irregular students have been taught free of cost to city or Normal School by Normal students who have had some experience in teaching. Prof. Shively has introduced the Junior High School Plan, but only the Eighth Grade was included in the high school this year. The Seventh Grade will be added next year. The Manual Arts Course has been extended and Basketry and Paper work added. The Manual Arts Class has completed a gymnasium with very little outside help. A course in Household Economics is added this year. Free Dental Clinic, free Medical Inspection, Parent-Teachers’ Meetings, adequate playground apparatus and a course of Community Center Lectures on Science, Literature and Music by the Normal instructors, are some of the things Professor Shively has secured for the benefit of the school. The students of the Training School visit classes in the various grades and hand in reports of their observations, thus giving a critical record of every class in the school. The prospective teachers assist the Critic Teachers with the class work, especially if it is of a laboratory nature. Under Mr. Shively’s direction, plans and needs of Western Kansas schools are studied in the weekly Teachers’ Training Conferences. The cause and cor- rection for truancy and backwardness of pupils has also been studied, since the history of such cases is available. This phase of the teacher’s training is omitted by most Normal Colleges. 113 Any teacher wanting to specialize in a particular department may do so. An excellent opportunity is afforded prospective High School Principals and Superintendents to study the organization of a complete system of City Schools operating under regular conditions and to acquire a thorough and practical knowledge of school administration. 1 he winning of the $25.00 prize by the High School Orchestra, the Quartet securing worthy mention, in the Golden Belt Teachers’ Association, the fine showing of the High School Athletic Teams, the healthy school atmosphere de- veloped among the pupils of the City School, and the more efficient class work attained, attest the feasibility and success of this economical co-operative school arrangement. The school patrons of the community have voiced their approval by re-electing the members of the School Board who made the con- tract with the Normal School. The Model School maintained on the College Campus in a typical rural surrounding, exemplifies the possibilities of the rural one-room district school. Elements of Manual Training, Household Economy, Agriculture, Music and Expression are taught along with the regular grade subjects. This affords the prospective rural teacher a concrete practical ideal of the future rural school of Western Kansas. 114 1914 September 8 Fall Term begins. September 10 All School Watermelon Social.

Elsie Grass Vernon Rice Jesse Gatewood OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Scrgeanl-al-Arms Once upon a time there lived a band of sturdy people. These people were students of the Western Branch of the State Normal. One morning in 1902 Mr. Pickcn and this company of people heard someone knocking, knocking gently at the door but they did not open it for they feared strangers. The advisability of opening the door was discussed and soon courage was gained. Tap! Tap! The door was opened. Behold a vision, a beautiful goddess clad in a robe of crimson, carrying a pennant in her right hand upon which was the inscription, “Non Scholae Sed Vitas. " “Friends,” she said. “I have come to offer to you the opportunity to do great things for your school, yourselves and your posterity. But you must first accept me. I will then tell you of your future. “You shall organize into a band of faithful workers that you may better co-operate and be a part of the Fort Hays Normal School. I sec meetings where you have gathered — you are giving a literary program; now a play; now a concert; now you are competing with your sister Society, the Lyceum, and you win . now you are defeated, but how like a true sportsman! “It is the Fall of 1914. New life is inspired, new officers are elected and everything is ready for a new campaign. New members are added. The hall is not large enough so you ad- journ to the Auditorium. “Friday evening, 8:30. Mock Trial. Kid Peterson vs. The Keller Law.

' ' OUR HISTORY At the beginning of school, the Fort Hays, Kansas, Normal had only one child, called Literati. Being the only child, and a fairly good one at that, she was being completely spoiled and had really reached the point where she was boss over her mother, our dear F. H. N. Know- ing that unless something was done immediately Literati would go to utter ruin, F. H. N. asked the good Fairies for another child, who would be stronger, of a better disposition and even more beautiful than Literati. The Fairies granted this wish and the child who was given them March 14, 1913, was called Lyceum, after a relative at Emporia. She more than fulfilled the wishes of her fond parent for she grew stronger year by year. No matter how much she was petted or how many things she won from her sister, she never became vain or spoiled. I he best thing about her is that no matter if she does go down in a fight she always comes up smiling ready to try again, always saying, “I may have lost this time, but I’ll sure win the next time.” and usually makes good her statement. She has many different traits of character. There is seldom any musical but what she gives her share of musicians. Her orators are among the best. Her athletes are ever ready to defend the honor of the school as well as of Lyceum herself. She is ever ready with wide open arms to receive a new comer and make him one of her if he proves he 11 be a booster and not a knocker. She has sent her share of people out into the world and none but who have brought her honor. Many of the older members will be going out this year but we are hoping that those left behind will do all in their power to help Lyceum to grow stronger in the future, as we have helped her in the past, and Lyceum will pay them back threefold for all her life has been spent in trying to educate her members that they may give broader and truer vision of life in all its aspects to every one with whom they come in contact. SONS AND DAUGH TERS OF INDOLENCE Sons an6 JDaugbtars of {Founded in the Ark) Purpose: The Sons and Daughters of Indolence is a tangible and visible organization of certain ambitious students, who, bound together by the common ties of laziness, have banded themselves together for the purpose of reforming the grind, upholding the idle, and producing the marvels of tomorrow. The members themselves are bound by oath to support all stunts and never work.

In order to reach this place that is ever flitting before the minds eye one must have strength of body, strength of mind and strength of character. With these and these alone can the goal be reached. 123 Oi)c football Season of 1914 T HE record established by the 1914 football team far eclipsed any previous record of any team representing the Fort Hays Normal. A larger num- ber of games was scheduled and the class of our opponents was far above that of previous years. The greatly increased interest in this sport was shown by the large number of boys competing for places on the team and the support the team received from the student body. The early fall practice found about forty candidates for positions on the team. This number was gradually decreased as the per- sonnel of the team and the substitutes were decided upon. At no time was prac- tice impaired because of the lack of men to complete two teams, as had been the case in former years. Only two games were lost during the season. These were atoned for later when the same two opposing teams went down to defeat before the Normal Tigers by larger scores than they had made in the early season victory. The Thanksgiving game was the big game of the year. The Cooper Barrel Makers were the Tigers’ opponents. The Tigers smarting under a 33 to 0 defeat of a year ago, came back with vengeance and “ate-’em-up” 33 to 7. The prospects for a winning team next year are particularly bright as only one man will be lost by graduation. The second team developed several good players who should prove valuable Varsity material for next year. ATHLETIC COUNCIL Faculty Advisory Committee W. G. Speer Walter E. Obcrt L. D. Wooster “K” MEN.

Weight lbO. “Scottie” lived up to his rep. of being a hard tackier. He is especially noted for his ability to ferret out the plays of the op- posing team. He is always cool and self possessed — an advocater of good clean sport and was an ideal leader for the Tigers. WILLIAM BOLT Captain Elect Position, right end. Weight 150. This was the second year “Billy” carried the pigskin for the Tigers. He won a world of fame for himself and F. H. N. by his skill to pluck forward passes from the air. Many a time by a hard tackle he nailed the enemy for a loss. With “Billy’s” popularity among the students and his teammates, and his ability as an all around player we predict that the team of 1915 will be recorded in the F. H. N. hall of fame. 125 CLARENCE LOREDITSCH Manager Position, quarter back. Weight 166. “Fat” won on his fame by place kicks. His ability to give the signals fast and furious kept the team awake and “up and coming” at all times. He is one of our old players. FRANK LOREDITSCH Position, full back. Weight 155. “Fritz” never failed to carry out the plays he was called upon to make. When it came to speed and lugging the ball through the line, “Fritz” was always on the job. An old dependable was “Fritz.” MARTIN PETERSON Position, left end and half back. Weight 160. Injuries kept “Pete” from several of the games but when he did play he was speedy and always hit hard for a goal. We expect him to do some sensational work next year. 126 WILLIAM MILLER Position, left end. Weight 150. • Bill” will always be re- membered by the way he did that “spilling stunt,” and also by the way he would knock the starch from the “pride” of the opposingtcam. He ' is our kid player. RALPH ARCHE R Position, Center and tackle. Weight 180. When it comes to nailing and bringing an opponent to earth you can “cinch” on Archer. A sure tackle, a heavy charger, and a shark at breaking up nicely laid schemes to go through the line. E. H. CUMMINGS Position, left tackle. Weight 155. We must hand it to Cummings when it comes to hard playing. A reliable war horse and always on the job. Not for speed was “Old Silent” but for endurance. 127 FRANK CARMAN Position, right half. Weight 150. “Care " still retains his “rep " of being the “pepper box “ of the team. His twist- ing runs and his long for- ward passes made him the sensation in many of this year ' s games. Though one of our lightest players. “Care " is a wise head at the game and always makes the fans sit up and take notice. JESSE GATEWOOD Position, end and half back. Weight 155. “Gate " is our race horse. Besides his speed he is noted for his faithful hard work. A bright future is before him on the gridiron. JOHN SEUSER Position, guard. Weight 185. “Seusie " won his place by hard work and steady playing. This was his first year on the gridiron yet with his cool head and hard work developed into one of our best guards. 128 W. D. OTTKEN Position, guard. Weight 180. " Ott " is one of our big huskies, who with a little more experience will be able to hold his own on any team. " To open up the line " was his motto, and he nearly al- ways lived up to it. F. W. ALBERTSON Position, Guard. Weight 158. " Freddie " won his place by his nerve and hard fight- ing. What he lacked in ex- perience and weight he made up in hard work, a level head, and his desire to charge harder every time. We expect " Freddie " to be a prominent figure in bringing home the bacon next year. KENNETH MOYE Position, left half. Weight 165. " Irish " will be remembered for his twist- ing runs through the line, and his true fighting spirit in defense of our goal. 129 BASKET BALI. MASCO ! 130 131 ARCHER, RALPH Weight 180 Height 6 ft 1 in.

We count ourselves very fortunate in having the best out of the three best teachers from Sar- gent ' s — Miss Daisy B. Roper. Upon her arrival here Miss Roper immediately began work with her classes, which soon became too large for the quarters provided. During the Golden Belt Teachers ' Meeting in March, 1914, the girls gave a demonstration of Folk Dancing and regular class work. The First Annual Girls ' Track Meet was held May 9. About seventy- five contestants entered. The class scoring the highest number of points was given a large bronze loving cup from Mr. J. H. Ward. This was awarded to the Junior College Class. The large silver Cup given by Mr. A. F. Cochran, to the class winning the relay race was given to the Senior College Class. Miss Eunice Ramsey, of the Junior College Class, receiving the largest number of individual points, received the small cup given by Mr. Cochran. The class cups must be won two successive years before they become the permanent property of the class. About one hundred twenty girls took part in the second demonstration given for the Golden Belt Teachers, March 13, 1915. This consisted of court dances, folk dancing, marching tactics and Indian Clubs. The size and at- tention of the crowd expressed their appreciation of the work. This Summer the girls are looking forward to baseball games and the much enjoyed track meet. Last Summer there were two baseball teams — the Shamrocks and the White Sox, the Shamrocks being the victors, winning two out of the three match games played, received a large baseball pennant. Girls ' athletics and Physical Education at the Fort Hays Normal consists of : folk dancing, marching tactics, Indian clubs, dumb bells, wands, use of heavy apparatus, tennis, baseball, high jump, broad jump, hurdles, relay, hundred- yard dash, and shot put. All girls interested in our athletics will find a ready welcome by both teacher and students. We feel we have accomplished a great deal in the past but with the super- vision of Miss Roper we intend to do greater things in the future. 136 137 CLASS BASKETBALL TEAMS 138 139 1915 baseball Squad BASEBALL CALENDAR May 1 Wesleyan Baseball Game.

We are shams today, not men. We veneer our wood and cry aloud, “beautiful.” If it stands for the present, if its flaws are hidden, then all is well. We have not the muscle to hew the oak to its heart, or the integrity to cry out against deceit; we are but daubed imitations of Nature: men with smart clothes and women with trinkets. To succeed: Have the faith of an optimist and work like a pessimist. Knowledge gained at second hand from books or hearsay is infinitely inferior in quality to knowledge gained at first hand by direct observation and experiment with nature. Huxley. Education is not a gift bestowed: it is a trophy to be won. Horne. When a man ' s knowledge is not in order, the more of it he has the greater will be his confusion. Herbert Spencer. Emotion is no substitute for action. The teacher is not the pupil ' s “pony,” but his experienced traveling companion. Horne. The left hind foot of a graveyard rabbit will bring luck to anyone who is industrious, efficient, economical and thrifty. Anon. It is impossible for man, with his senses all alive, seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, to be wholly uninspired, to be dull, despairing or forlorn: to be lacking in humanity or to be uncultured. Sir Gilbert Parker. “Few men have weak eyes from looking on the bright side of life.” “I am inclined to think that the most valuable asset that I brought out of my college course was the habit of studious application to the job in hand, rather than a finished knowledge of any subject.” I have seen a man learn to treble his day ' s work by systematically shutting out all feeling during office hours. What fatigues and worries us is not our work, but the mental friction, nervous strain, muscular tension, emotional wear and tear which we allow to accompany our work. Edward E. Purinton. 151 Ohe JFort Iftays experiment Station The 3,600 Acre Field Laboratory of the Fort Hays Students. GENERAL VIEW, EXPERIMENT STATION MAIN BUILDINGS One mile from the Normal School buildings, making the operations of this Kansas Ex- periment Station available to the student body at all times. The scope of work involved includes: General Farm Management and Stock Growing. Inves tigations in Dry Land Agriculture. Practical Dairy Farm Management. Cereal Crop Experiments. Forage Crop Experiments. Forestry and Forest Tree Nursery. Tenant Farm Management. Cordially invites correspondence relating to agriculture in the semi-arid region. Visitors made welcome, and shown the work of the experiment station, at all seasons. Important pub- lic gatherings entertained during the year in the interests of progressive farming. FORT HAYS PARK: ON THE EXPERIMENT STATION HAYS 153 CLUB FORCE CHIEF COOKS 154 Ol)e formal JDinins (Hub P ERHAPS there is no place on the campus of F. H. N. which is of greater interest to visitors, than the Normal Dining Club. This is located at present in the basement of the Industrial Building and is under the supervision of a special faculty committee, composed of Miss Keller, Miss Agnew, Mr. Speer, and Mr. Matthew. It is one of the greatest socializing forces of our school, for here many new students come each term; and perhaps there is no place within the sphere of the Normal where more lasting friendships are formed. The new student soon catches the spirit of good fellowship, which is so preva- lent among the members of the Club. Certainly the club does its part in the welcoming of strangers, in their first, and often lonesome, days here. The one thing which makes school life most worth while, is the fact that it is a combination of hard work and fun. In it, as elsewhere, we remember longest and prize highest the things we work for. Perhaps there is no place within the realm of F. H. N. where there can be found a better blending of hard labor and jovial feeling than is displayed at the Normal Dining Club. And this from the one hundred and sixty-five boarders which assemble daily? Yes, of course, they work hard while they are spending their noon hour within the walls of the dining hall, and they enjoy themselves, too, for people are usually good natured when they are well fed. But this is not all, for after the meal has been served if you were to visit the kitchen you would indeed find a happy energetic bunch of from fifteen to twenty students. Perhaps you would be astonished with the richness of melody (?) resulting from hasty steps, rattling dishes, laughter, melodious voices, snatches of school songs and occasionally a school yell, for a jolly bunch indeed is the working force. It is composed en- tirely of Normal students who are working their way through school, with the exception of the cooks, “Daddy " and “Mother ' ' Cave, who are the guardian spirits of the working force “family.” 155 OrucKers .Association T HE Fort Hays Normal Truckers Association was organized February 15, 1915. It consists of forty members, 18 girls and 22 boys. The purpose of the organization is to turn idle hours into cash. 1 he money will be used to finance a trip to the World s Fair at San Francisco, or to be ap- plied on the student s school expenses. Each member of the Association rents one-fourth acre of ground from the Normal School Reservation and farms it intensively. The principal crops raised will be tomatoes and cantaloupes. It has been demonstrated by the Agricultural Department that as much as $150 can be produced from the one-fourth acre. Phis will go far toward pay- ing the necessary expenses of a world ' s fair trip. Two hours per day of the student ' s time will be required in the field during the growing season, and as the garden work is wholesome exercise the time spent will have a double value. The officers of the Association are: President, Edna Fulton; Secretary, Fred Albertson; Farm Manager, W. G. Speer; Sales Manager, E. B. Matthew. 156 GOVERNOR S ESCORT NOVEMBER 30, 1014 Hriirjifi frrfrc. -. .. ■-, .H,rv ALU M N 1903 Lindley, Fred E., lawyer, San Diego, Cal. Schwaller, Fredella, Mrs. Trinkle, at home. La Cygne, Kans.

Reveille Staff, Hays , Kansas . Friends : - - It is my pleasure to extend to you and your friends a cordial invitation, from the officers and directors of the Citizens State Bank, to make this institution your bank while attending school. They want you to know that there is one particular Fort Hays Normal School Bank in this City, a bank that is interested in your welfare, and which is ready at all times to serve your best interests, and those of your school as well . Some banks do not care for the small checking accounts, but we solicit them. The small account receives the same earnest atten- tion and is as welcome in this bank as the larger one s . There are several advantages for the stu- dent in keeping a bank account while attending school. These will be explained to any student by Mr. Miller, Mr. Staab or Mr. Arnhold, and if you do not know any of these men, you will get along fine with them just the same. They will be glad to meet you and help you along with the bank part of your school life. There is a matter to which we wish to call your attention at this time, in regard to the cashing of checks. It makes no difference from what source you receive your check, where it is drawn or where it is payable, you can bring it or send it to this bank to be cashed, or placed to your credit. We are glad to handle checks that you receive drawn on other towns and states as well as those drawn on any local bank . Assuring you of our best service in every respect, I am Very truly yours, AZEL F.

Public utilities — especially telephone operating com- panies — as servants of the public, must have the co-oper- ation of their masters, the public, in order to serve them most efficiently.

Patronize our advertisers. Why? Good business policy. v.ft er word ' FTER some weeks of class-cutting by the edi- tors of the Reveille, 15, they are presenting this book, not to critics, but to friends and fellow-students. If you have been handed a lemon, eat it; if stung, remember it is for another ' s enjoyment; if given notoriety, don ' t get inflated. And to those who are to continue in this work in the future they have but one word of advice; " Begin Early, Cut Often, and Work Hard and Long. " We desire to thank the mem- bers of the committees, the sub- scribers, and advertisers who have made the Reveille of 1915 a pos- sibility.
