The Campus, which is located in the bend of Big Creek, is a level tract of about eighty acres, adjoining the Hays town sight on the west. The Normal buildings occupy the north and east portion of this tract while to the south and west lays the athletic field which is known far and wide as the best natural field in the state, being naturally sodded with buffalo grass which holds the soil firm, making it a very desirable field upon which to combat, especially in football and track work. Few are tbe days when groups of students may not be seen on this field either for pleasure, practice 13 or actual combat. With the approach of spring comes the baseball fans, with all their stored up energy, to display their talent. ' 1 hen as the days grow warmer, and lessons grow tiresome the tennis sharks don their soft- soled shoes and hasten to the courts for a few hours of recreation and pleas- ure. Hand in hand with tennis goes the game of golf, although until a year ago little attention was given to this sport, but with the coming of P. Caspar Harvey came the pleasures of the golf links. In the fall the football squad with their coach are testing brain and brawn on this self-same field, that they may determine who shall be “Tigers ' ’ and who shall remain “Cubs.” Many entertainments in the form of socials, pageants and song fests are also held here. Meandering through the valley in such a manner as to bound the campus on three sides, follows Big Creek a beautiful little stream of water which is 14 the source of a great deal of pleasure and •amusement to the students and faculty of the Forty Hays Normal School. The banks of the stream are lined with a good growth of native timber forming many shady nooks and groves along its course making very inviting places for picnicers. The departments of Biology, Geology and Physiography use this stream and its valley as a source for observation work and a place from which to gather specimens for use in the various classes. A cement dam across the creek at a point about one hundred fifty yards from the buildings creates a fine body of water which affords excellent boat- ing, fishing swimming and skating in season. The ground immediately surrounding the buildings is laid out with walks and drives and is set with trees and shrubbery. An irrigating plant has late- ly been installed which affords water for irrigating the campus. 15 Big Creek (With Apology to Love.) ( Dedicated to the Alumni and Alumnae of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School.) On the classic banks of Big Creek I should love to linger now (Oh, the lure of that Western Kansas Creek!) Wipe away, O Time, the wrinkles thou hast written on my brow ; Let nie loaf along the Big Creek for a week ! Let me loaf and linger there With a Co-ed fond and fair, And ril ask of Fame no laurels for my forehead or my hair. I have memories of Big Creek fate nor fortune can erase, (Oh, the magic of the murmur of the stream!) There the overhanging willows and the grapevine interlace Like the filmy, floating figments of a dream ; And the music of the rill Singeth sonnets for me still That are born of witching poesy of sheer and sovereign thrill. I have journed far, O Big Creek, where the bitter water flow (Ah, the sweetness and the purity of thine!) Yet I sense thy silvern ripples, as in days of long ago, When I wandered where thy willows intertwine. Thou hast on my heart bestowed Joy that lighter makes the load ; In return I can but offer thee a rhyme along the road. Fort Hays Kansas Normal School ]HE history of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School, cov- ering fourteen years, has not always been an uninter- rupted progress. Not always has the outlook for our future been so well assured as now. We are harvesting where brave pioneers, facing difficulties that at times seemed unsurmountable, have sown. The annals of the past contain the names of many men who have written the stirring history on these Western Kansas plains. Their names and Romances are the priceless traditions of this Normal School. While the history of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School begins with the legislative act of February 1901, which established the school, there are chapters of pre-founding history which closely relates to the succeeding events. Old Fort Hays was one of the line of military posts established soon after the Civil war to protect construction camps of the Union Pacific railroad company and the pioneers who had pushed their way westward. It w r as lo- cated on Big Creek about fifteen miles southeast of the present reservation. In June, 18(57 a disastrous flood destroyed the post. A new site was then selected on higher ground lying south of Big Creek, about half a mile south of the present city of Hays. The reservation included about 7,(500 acres ly- ing along the course of the creek. The city of Hays was founded in 18(57 and its industrial and social interests were intimately bound up with the life of the fort. After the Fort Hays military post was abandoned in 1889 various plans were suggested for the disposition of the land comprising the reservation. Homesteaders realized its value and were anxious to file on it, but the far- 17 sighted, public-spirited pioneer saw a better future for this ground and sug- gested that it be used for public purposes . The legislature of 1889 was induced to ask Congress for a cession of the land to the state for a soldiers home. Congress did not make the grant. The legislature of 1895 passed a resolution asking Congress for a cession of the land to the state for the purpose of establishing upon it a public park, an experiment station and a branch of the State Normal School, but Congress failed to act. Finally in March, 1900, an act was passed by Congress grant- ing the land to the state to be used for a State Normal School, an experiment station for the Agricultural College and a public park. The legislature ac- cepted this grant in February 1901. Owing to delays occasioned by controversy over claims of squatters upon the land, the Normal School was not started until 1902. The opening oc- curred on June 23 of that year with William S. Picken as principal. Care- fully did Mr. Picken nurture and guide this seedling of an institution that it might grow and bring forth good fruit. 11 is labors were not in vain for at the expiration of his term in 1913 the school had grown so rapidly that additions of various kinds had to be made to meet the needs of these indus- trious people. The buildings had increased in number from one small struc- ture to three buildings, modernly equipped. The faculty had increased from two to twenty-two and the student body had grown from twenty-four to over seven hundred. Dr. William Alexander Lewis succeeded Principal Picken and assumed his duties in August 1913. His inauguration took place March ( following. On this same day the name of the school was changed from Western Branch of the State Normal School to Fort Hays Kansas Normal School, and the head official of the school was changed from principal to president. March ( , 1915, the state legislature accepted the federal grant of August 27, 1914, which established this school as equal in function and standing with the other State Normal Schools. 18 The legislature of 1!)15 granted the institution an appropriation of $100,000 to be used for the erection of Sheridan Coliseum, now under con- struction, which stands just south of Picken Hall. It will be the largest building on the campus and will contain the auditorium, gymnasium for men and women, showers and swimming pool, departments of music, blacksmith- ing, manual training and farm carpentry, gas and steam engines and public school art. Under the careful guidance of our inspiring leader, Dr. William A. Lewis, the school has witnessed its greatest growth in material equipment, in num- ber of students an d teachers, in service rendered the people of Western Kan- sas and in the confidence and support with which the people and their repre- sentatives have rewarded these services. At this time the Fort Flays Kansas Normal School has before it, an ex- ceedingly bright future: while there has been nothing as tangible as new buildings, there has been great internal growth and strengthening. There has been developed, a Fort Hays Normal spirit which counts for much more than mere buildings : and this spirit is growing and deepening each year ; it is permeating the atmosphere of Western Kansas. The pride taken in the Fort Hays Normal by the people of Western Kansas and the appreciation that they have shown for the work being carried on at this institution is sufficient to assure a great future. 19 Board of Administration HE State Educational Institutions of Kansas are controlled bv the State Hoard of Administration composed of Hon. Ed. T. Hackney, President ; Ex. -Gov. Hoch and Mrs. Cora G. Lewis. “I believe that the Eort Hays Normal School will grow to be one of the large teachers’ training agencies in Kan- sas. No other thing in Kansas perhaps needs so much care and nourish- ment as the rural schools of the State and the Normal which is training teachers for grade and rural service certainly deserves a place of wide recog- nition among those interested in the state’s future. Christ said at one time, ‘I have come that ve might have life and have it more abundantly In es- sence I believe the Fort Hays Normal School is saying that same thing to the rural schools of the state, and that it is living up to. its declaration by training along the widest and most useful lines those who are to be in a place of responsibility in this great work, in which my whole heart is completely wrapped up.” Cora G. Lewis. 21 22 William A. Lewis, A. B., B. S., LL. D., President. Missouri State Normal School, Valparaiso University, Armour Institute of Technology. 23 r V JENNIE E. NICKLES, A. B., German and Latin.

First, Second, Third and Fourth year Academy. The change was made because there is no strictly high school course of- fered at the Fort Hays Kansas Normal. The secondary department is car- ried on for the benefit of those young people who have not had the privilege of attending high school in their home county. The department is a part of the Normal proper, there being no separate organization. The students of the Academic Department attend school in the same building and are taught by the same teachers as the students of College rank. The secondary department offers a larger curriculum, and the work is more difficult than the regular high school course. First there are a number of courses offered such as ; Agriculture, Home Economics, Science, Music, and Art. The student entering does not need to take a pre- scribed high school course but must make sixteen units of required work and has his choice of electives. The students taking Academic work are as a rule older than the high school boy or girl, and they have a more definite idea of the course which they wish to take. Therefore the work is assigned with this fact in mind. The assignments are longer, more library reference work is required, and the students ability to do research work is developed. The Academic Department offers an opportunity to the young men and women who have not had earlier high school advantages. 63 64 Senior Reminiscences jOU all know the Senior class is the important Academic class. Yes, smallest but not least, of course. During the first semester we had a large number but during the “mumps” raid several got the ‘‘swell head” and joined the Freshies. The want of individual pictures, also, had something to do with the case. Nevertheless we are a happy bunch. O, yes, we had a picnic one pleasant evening last autumn. Many games were played, but an unfortunate accident occurred at the time of greatest pep, when one of the young ladies fell and suffered a sprained ankle ; luckily a jitney was on hand and at once the lady was helped into the ambulance, the driver pushed the lever and up the steep embankment they went for comfort and relief. Thoroughly believing in optimism, we renewed our games for a short time, and later partook of a wienie and other “roasts.” After enjoying this for some time and having cleaned things up fairly well, we proceeded to depart for home, each thinking of the pleasant evening spent together. Our class has its share of basketball and football boys, having two of each as well as two members of the orchestra. In class meetings we are more regular and business-like than the majority of the others, you know we are Seniors. One wish for next year’s class, may they be just as happy but greater in numbers. 65 CLASS OFFICERS First Semester Lew Wallace, . . President Mary Brull, . Vice President Asa King, .

We have no longer the feeling of the Freshman. The ease, grace and grandeur of the upper classmen, who astonished us at first, have guided us to attainment. We went to work with a will, organized athletic teams, en- tered vigorously into all activities, and now have an excellent girls’ and boys’ basketball teams. Our class has the nifty Tiger quarter-back, the smashing half-back and the terrible tackle. The class also has the two champion tennis players. Through steady and constant work, we feel that we can say, in a small measure, at least, that our work has not been in vain. As we look back we recall with pleasure many a picnic, jaunt or social gathering, that did much to break the monotony of our daily routine of work. When counting our deeds we believe that our work at the Fort Hays Normal School has given us a greater experience than we would have se- cured had we taken our High School work elsewhere. The influence of col- lege men and women have created high ideals in us and a desire for the things gained in college. With one more year before us we feel that we can complete with excel- lence the work before us. and remembering our motto “excelsior” we shall continue to attain and excell.

Brummitt HE Sophomore Academic Class of 1915 and 1916 began their school activities with a vim and earnestness that is seldom found in so young a class. They began their work by summoning their members to- gether early in the year and electing their officers, which consisted of a president, vice president, secretary, yell leader, and an executive council. The class colors, black, gold and blue, are well fitted for the class, the black and gold showing their loyalty to the school and the blue their idea of purity. “The Golden Age is before us, not behind us.” This motto was not chosen and then forgotten by the sophomore class, as can be seen in the progress they have made. During the foot-ball season, this class had the largest per cent, of season football tickets and as a reward they were given their choice of seats on the bleachers. The class is noted for its “pep.” When anything is to have life put into it, the sophomores are on the spot, ready and equal to the undertaking. Out of this class two members won places on the first team foot-ball, a number took part in the Oratorio and one member took a prominent part in the “Bohemian Girl.” If this class continues as it has begun, no class will be able to surpass it. :1» ' .

Even though they be great and much praised they will be known in history as “has beens. ,, With a foundation they are in his- tory as a mansion still. A school without its foundation class, likewise would soon be classed as one of the “has beens,” but with the class that now is the foundation of old F. H. N., she shall not fail to receive her praises in the future. We are going to make our preceding classes proud that they are giving their old places to a class that can and does do things, even though this is the first year we have had a chance, we wont say that we haven’t done any- thing but look on as so many imagine we should. We had the largest num- ber in our class at the fair last fall. We had our good old picnic with one of the jolliest of the faculty as a sponsor. We had a man that won a K. in football. Yes, our basketball team would have been an honor to any class. They had the highest average of games won of any class of old F. H. N. Even the varsity if you please. We also took part in the G. B. E. A. by hav- ing a number of students in both the Opera and the Creation. With the re- sponsibility of old F. H. N.’s future honors, both in education and in ath- letics, we are most serious in our task; the Freshman class of 1915 and 1916. 71 Mabel Lillia, CLASS OFFICERS President Grace Ewing, Secretary Mary Spencer, Treasurer Ardle Pugh, Yell Leader Ben Williams EXECUTIVE COUNCIL Mary Spencer Glanville Hays Class Colors: Red and Grey Class Flower: Pink Carnation Class Motto: We shall escape the up hill by never turning back Althea H.

During the few years of its existence it has grown rapid- ly. The importance and usefulness of this department cannot be overestimated. The knowledge obtained from a course in Domestic Art will apply to every phase of a woman ' s career, whether housekeeper, teacher, or business woman. The object of the department is to teach practical things. The chief factor in this is teaching the girls to plan and make a complete wardrobe, which is one of the difficult problems, which confronts every school girl. In order that the girls may become more efficient in the selection of ma- terials, a course in textiles is provided. This is a study of the various kinds of fabrics, their origin, manufacture, cost and duraiblity. For those who are interested in needlework, a class has been organized in which all kinds of fancy stitches are taught. The fact that this is a training school renders it necessary to provide a course in the presentation of art. This course is especially for those who wish to become teachers of the subject. It has been the custom for some time past, for the Domestic Art depart- ment to make the costumes needed for the Music and Dramatic Art depart- ments. It is hoped that there will be a course in Costume making offered for the benefit of the Dramatic Art department. 73 I® Domestic Art Class 09 Aft ' IiE year 11)15-1 ( has been the most proficient in the history of the Science Department. Owing to the fact that the department is rapidly grow- ing, a new laboratory has been added, blit still much more room is needed to accommodate the great number who desire the work. In addition to the two regular courses in cooking, there are courses in Die- tectics, Home Nursing, Home Management, and Presentation of Domestic Science offered. One feature of the work in this department is preparing and serving meals in a dainty and appetizing way, as well as in the most wholesome and econ- omical way. The Domestic Science classes receive the practical application of their work when they are required to serve banquets, luncheons, dinners, etc. At such times the classes have complete charge of the work under the direction of the Domestic Science teacher. They plan their menu, prepare the meal and do their own serving. 75 Domestic Science Class fpa EALIZING the need of the inexperienced for more and better preparation for the work of a teacher and for a better understanding of the problems and conditions which are likely to confront him in his chosen profession, a regular training department for teachers is maintined. By an arrangement with the City of Hays, the city schools, both grades and high school, are under the ex- pert supervision of C. A. Shively of the department of education of the Normal School. Under this arrangement a complete city system of schools with skilled teachers in charge, serves as a pedigogical laboratory for the teachers training purposes. The student, in order to receive the required credits in his work must visit, observe and make out reports, outline lessons and participate in the actual work of the school. The prospective teachers will in this way have the opportunity of acquiring the expert pedigogical knowledge, skill, and inspiration that comes from daily contact with and participation in a model school organization. In connection with and as an auxiliary to this pedigogical training for teachers, the Model District school was established as one of the depart- ments of the regular teachers’ training work. One eager to advance in his work may learn many things of value, both in methods and management. Here he may not only get theories but they may be seen put into actual operation in a one-teacher rural school. T TrltAWb S°rt TT°IU wn° Dt? i m C9ui®ei pw N rcflp= FYDTHE5 hte rwz THE! IflttP W£ 12.

Some think that dexterity of hand is all of the aim of the manual arts. But it should be understood that this department is building brain by using the sensibilities to receive impressions and the hand to give expression to these impressions. It is a large field, too large to be fully occupied, but growing and expanding as the needs of the institution demand. In these courses drafting plays a primary part. Mechanical drawing is the place of beginning work here. Things made are usually accomplished in this order: First, they are thought out; second, they are drawn out; third, they are wrought out. Often the second step is omitted ; yea the first and second are both frequently omitted. The result is failure. But if the plan- ning is not drawn, when it is an intricate piece of construction, it is not likely to be successfully finished. Mechanical drawing is a universal language of construction and should be the primer of the mechanic arts. Wood working is the second reader. Blacksmithing is usually the third reader with plaster-casting, basketry, weaving, card board construction, etc., in the “supplementary series.” Here the work is suited to our short-grass life. Much of the drawing, wood working and blacksmithing is for rural service. Just recently the class in farm drafting drew and then made a wagon jack and tested it by use. The blacksmithing is given with portable inexpensive forges that any farmer could set up. And because our red blooded Kansas youth are in demand for teaching the practical things they are securing the best places in the educational field. 79 ti ' JL 80 The Forensic League OFFICERS Kathryn O’Loughlin, President Walter E.

It is a de- partment of which any school might well be proud. Owing to the financial condition of the early homeseek- ers, their thot and time were given over to the procur- ing of the necessities of life. Recent prosperous condi- tions in Western Kansas have opened excellent oppor- tunities for the development of music. It has been said that the music department of the Fort Hays Normal is a success because it is “doing things.” We have the courage and ambition to work. « Music is one of the many things which when studied properly will help young people to preserve their intellectual and social equilibrium. Not only by the opportunity of listening to good music, but by its regular study, by more intimate acquaintance with the great masterpieces, we cultivate our finer musical feelings. Although the department is in its infancy, we are studying the best in music, by an annual rendition of “The Creation ’ by Hayden and other oratories and operas we are creating musical appreciation. The best available artists are procured for our school concerts, such as Maud Powell, Fabbuine, Hedge, Harrison, Marguerite Dunlap, and The Philharmonic Orchestra of New York, Josef Stransky, conductor. The Band, Orchestra and Chorus are made up of students and constitute a part of their regular work. In addition to all musical class work, credit is given for private instruction, both instrumental and vocal. Music as the vocational work of the regular student is being encouraged and the typical conservatory of music is being discouraged. As a Normal School, we are trying to produce teachers who are broad- minded, competent, leaders who if necessary can organize choruses, bands 85 and orchestras, thereby cultivating the cultural side of life. This will also furnish amusement for all classes of people, with whom they are associated as teachers. The work should be the musical expression of the community itself. The musical festival can be made a part of the municipal life of any community. It is a factor in the promotion of education and commercial activities. There are no better means of bringing people together regardless of social, relig- ious and business connections than through community music. Of all arts, music strikes the responsive chord in every heart. Lovers of music are gathered together with one motive — the study of music. Friends greet friends and rehearsals prove excellent meeting places for those with leisure evenings and those desiring a change from business routine. It is our aim to give every student a chance for musical appreciation and expression according to his ability, also that our graduates may be better fitted for their work as teachers, and community leaders. ll • ' 86 Fort Hays Kansas Normal School Band GUY L.

A powerful imagination is more to be desired than a facile brush ’ — Howard Pyle. HE much talked of “New Movement in Art’ ' has a long arm. It not only has reached the great painters and sculptors, but is reaching the public school and doing it through the teacher. Art is not so fine and intangible that it cannot fit into daily life. It may be presented to any individual so that he may see its application to his profession and his home. The old idea that only a gift- ed few may delve into the beautiful — create the things we love to see and be possessed of the finer emotions is an exploded theory. No one is so young or so humble that he cannot appreciate the harmonious relationships exist- ing between forms and colors. In our day of factory products, things that are made by the combined work of many people, the emotional and artistic element is decidedly lacking. We need to foster the love for crafts in our public schools. To the craftsman who has put deft, careful touches to the article he has made, it is not alone a thing of wood or brass. It is part of himself. He has worked for beauty and in this endeavor has cultivated the finest emotions, truth and sincerity. “Art is the expression of beauty in whatever form it may appear, in the home, in the shop, in daily life, in thought and work. It is something in- finitely deeper and broader than the form through which it manifests itself. Its measure of beauty is directly proportioned to the sincerity of purpose and the fineness of the ideals that gives it form. The conscious effort to under- stand and appreciate a work of art strengthens our own ideals ; and in striv- ing to express our ideals, through whatever task comes to our hands, we may make our own life and the lives of others happier, more worthy and more beautiful.” 91 FORSYTH LIBRARY FORT HAYS KANSAS STATE COLLEGE Art Club Colors: Green and Yellow Flower: Jonquil OFFICERS President, . . .

The Club expects to bring an Art Loan Exhibit to Hays this spring, and is planning to purchase books and pictures by which a general interest in Art may be stimulated. Genevieve Dorney Ralph Reed Anna Stone Bessie Bailey Julia Keeler Miss Anna Stone Clara Unruh Asa King Ray Davis Beatrice Kirkman 92 8391 UCH widely differing illustrations of this new art have been given, that it is hardly surprising that so many peo- ple ask this question: “What is it?” Pageantry is an old art revived in new forms. The word pageant originally meant a moving wagon or float on which were presented the old English Miracle and Mystery Plays. In later times England celebrated great events by magnificent processions termed pageants. “A pageant is the representation of the history of a town in dramatic form the earliest period, to some later point forming a fitting climax. This is set forth in verse and prose of the most direct art, and it is embellished with choruses, songs, dances, marches and every legitimate spectacular adjunct. It is acted in some beautiful and historical spot, which is left without any artificial embellishment whatever. It is acted by the citizens of the town themselves, their wives, their children and their friends. It is acted in a spirit of simplicity and reverance and the audience must bring the same spirit in watching its progress. It is not a stage play. It is a lofty and dignified panorama of the town history. It is an art of local patriotism,” is the definition given by a leader in pageantry work. American pageantry has now evolved three species of presentation: First, The parade composed of floats and marching companies ; Second, The out- of-door performances at selected sites, of historical events. In this case there is large opportunity for acting, music and speaking; Third, Indoor entertainments made up of scenes so related as to possess unity. Some theme such as the growth of National Spirit, the strength of a peo- ple for liberty, the progress of a science may be used as the keynote. For schools and colleges this latter form of pageantry is most practical. It is 93 safe to prophecy that pageantry is to win an increased recognition as a means of ponlar entertainment and education. It is the third type of pageantry which the Fort Flays Normal School is endeavoring to use in its course in pageantry. Owing to the fact that a large per cent, of our students expect to teach in the rural schools or small town schools, we are broadening the scope by combining with it school room dramatization. The classes in this course gather material for work both with school- room and in the community. Special holidays are observed. This work is entirely creative. Research work is done and then a pageant or play is con- structed from the material gathered. All the problems of planning, writing costuming, rehearsing and presenting are worked out by the students them- selves. The students since the beginning of the year have accomplished a number of things. The first attempt made was a Pageant of Columbus, which was given as a concrete example of what any ordinary school can do. For the twenty-ninth of November the opening of the Farmers’ and Housekeepers’ Short Course the class planned a processional pageant which was composed of seven elaborate floats picturing agriculture in other coun- tries. At Christmas the class worked out two affairs : “A German Home Christ- mas’’ which was not presented and a “First Christmas” which was present- ed with wonderful effect. 94 THLETICS at Fort Hays Normal, within the last year, have advanced a long stride toward the recognition that has been due them for sometime. Our admittance into the Kansas Conference in 1914 placed us on a par with the teams that battle for the state championship. Thru- out the state, we are a recognized factor in athletics. People come from surrounding towns to witness our contests. We were not able to secure many games the first year but the season of 1915 found us with a heavy football schedule. Seven games were listed to be played. There were only five “K " men that reported but the new material was exceptionally good. Coach Speer soon had them working in scrimmage in preparation for the season ' s work. The first game was with Fairmont which we lost. Even at that they can count themselves lucky in being able to play us before we “hit our stride. " The defeating of St. Mary’s and the Haskell Indians by the Tigers gave the players confidence and filled the student body with “pep. " The next game was lost to Lindsborg. The week preceding the game, there seems to have been a hoodoo in the Tiger Camp. A sprained ankle was a common occur- rence and several regulars were on the side line as a result. The closest game of the schedule was the Tigers vs. Ottawa game. Neither side was able to score until in the last two minutes of play when the Tigers scored a touchdown. The Tigers were defeated at Salina by the Wesleyan Coyotes. The game was not one-sided as the score seems to indicate. The season ended Thanksgiving day when the Tigers and the Terrible Sweedes clashed on the F. H. N. gridiron. Wind, dust and cold ruled the day. The game was slow but the rooters went home satisfied for F. H. N. had won the odd game of the season. Prospects are bright for a winning team for next season. “WE” will have something to say about who are to he champions in 191G. The basketball season has been a failure from the standpoint of games won. The team was handicapped by hard luck from start to finish. Car- men, G. Archer and Peterson were the only men who were not out of the game, on account of illness, during the season. Attacks of appendicitis de- prived the team of the services of T. Mock and Middlekauff. The mumps caused the loss of Welty, I. Spencer, F. Archer and Gardels at different periods. The addition of Swede Neilson, about the middle of the season, made the team look several per cent stronger. The Tigers finished the sea- son by winning the last four games. In baseball we have a heavy schedule of games. We cannot say very much about the team for the season has not opened yet. F. H. N. has had a good team every spring for several seasons. This year there are six “K” men in school. Several of the new men who are out have been showing well in practice and the prospects are bright for a winning team. Field Day on which is held the annual inter-class track meet comes in the last week of the Spring term. Probably no other event “stirs up” as much enthusiasm among the students. For the competitors there are six cups, three are for the boys and three for the girls. The trophies are the sweep- stakes, relay and invidual cups. The sweepstakes cups are for the classes scoring the highest number of points, tbe relay cups are for the class repre- sented by the winning relay team and the high scoring boy and girl receive the individual cups. The events participated in are the dashes, long races, hurdles, broad and high jumps, shot-put, discus and pole vault. The relay races, end the day’s sport. They furnish an exciting finish for of all the trophies the relay cups are the most highly prized. SSiSfi ■V W m • I ■ • I ' w V s ' • lb C ■ " MSB Martin Peterson Position — Right End “Pete” is our “star.” To him belongs the glory of be- ing the first man from F. H. N. to make the All State Team. His specialties were smashing interference and going down under punts. He is also adept in the flipping and receiving of forward passes. Jesse Gatewood Position — Left End “Gate” was the highest scor- ing man on the team. Speed was his forte. His ability to pick long forward passes out of the air and make sensa- tional end runs gave him his reputation. Elmer Dougherty Position — Left Tackle “Watch that big tackle” has been heard from his oppon- ents many times. Next sea- son we expect to watch our big tackle win a place on the All State with his tackle swings. Edward Fink Position — Left Half To Ed football is a serious business. Watching him play will soon convince one of this fact. Hard work and “the old fight” make up for his lack of weight. Emerson Felts Position — Quarter-back This is Emerson’s first year. His playing while at quar- ter-back and plunging at half-back shows that he can fill his place creditably. 100 Wiley Compton Position — Half and Fullback Compton gave a good ac- count of himself in all of his games this year. He is sure going to carry that ball for some long gains next season. Clay Coughenour Position — Left Guard “Coke” although new to the game played like a veteran at guard. When switched to tackle he was not long in proving that he could play that position the same way. Fred Albertson Position — Half and Fullback “Freddie was switched to the back -field and made good without doubt. His ex- perience and speed make him one of the strongest candidates for next season. 101 Clark Reed Position — Guard and Tackle A hard and willing worker who plays to help the team rather than for individual glory. Clark is one of our “hardest tacklers.” Ralph Archer Position — Center Ralph is our big center. He is always in the game and full of “fight and pepper.” His accuracy in passing the ball, hard tackling and spill- ing of plays feature his work Ernest Mock Position — Guard This is Ernie’s first year at football. Grit and hard play- ing enabled him to play posi- tions in the line that are usually filled by heavier men Frank Carmen Captain 1915 Position — Right Half By peppery and consistent playing “Care” set an ex- ample that served to spur his men to greater efforts. He was always good for gains when yards were needed and his flipping for- ward passes was the main part of our scoring punch. E. H. Cummings Captain- Elect 1916 Position — Right Tackle The football men could not have chosen a better leader for 1916 than this hard play- ing champion of clean sport. His reputation is not built on brilliant and daring plays. It is the result of “heady” playing and team-work. Benjamin Williams Position — Right Guard This is Ben’s first year at football and his playing shows that he has the stuff, his side of the 1916 team ought to look like a “Stone Wall.” 103 wm 104 AJBASKCT BALL ;.m y.M M ' f fe rs. ■SZ _!L rnl .- BfeA 105 v ‘ v MM ' mZM M Harry Neilson Glenn Archer Raymond Welty 106 Frank Carmen Captain 1915 Jesse Gatewood Captain 1916 107 k£=-irf.«t xl Vs . JHAT the physical development of every student might be attended to and because teachers are required to teach physical education in the public schools of today, the de- partment of physical education for women was added to the curriculum. The indoor work consists of German and Sweedish folk dancing, dumb bell and Indian club drills, basketball practice and games suitable for public school use. Aesthetic and folk danc- ing are given with a view of developing poise, gracefulness and co-ordina- tion of mind and body. The field work includes hockey, baseball, volley ball, tennis, and track work. That every girl might leave the institution able to direct a game of basket ball or tennis, a plan was formulated whereby competition in these games might be aroused. Teams were organized in each class and a series of inter- class games in basketball were played. The tennis tournament will be held in the spring. The girls annual track meet will be held in May. The work will consist of 50 yd. and 100 yd. dash, running and standing broad jumps and running high jump, hurl ball throw, shot put, basketball and baseball throw, and archery contest. During the Golden Belt Teachers , Association about fifty of the Normal girls and one-hundred of the public school children gave a demonstration of their work in Sweedish and Irish folk dancing, Indian club swinging and games. A course is being planned whereby the girls may take training in the department and receive the Three Year Special Certificate. The girls are looking forward with much expectation to the time when they will have the new gymnasium which will be in the Sheridan Coliseum. Here they will have more room and better conveniences for their training. 109 A Xxiflrrf Si ’OUBS " " WOTND r ' TT ' rr Reveille Staff E. H. Cummings, Marguerite Boomer, James R.

Circulation 111 The Fort Hays Normal Leader HE Leader is the official publication of the Fort Hays Kan - sas Normal School. It is published semi-monthly and is under the management of the student body. With the beginning of this year it has undergone many changes. The size of the paper was changed from the magazine to the regular four page newspaper style. The management was reorganized, a new constitution was provided, a board of control appointed and in the place of an editor and business manager, a managing editor was elected. The staff is composed of the class in Journalism and all copies are written by them for which they receive college credit. The purpose of the Leader is to reflect the student opinion, to give each department of the school its proper recognition, to serve to the best of its ability the students of the Fort Hays Normal School. In a way the Leader has set a new standard. By the present system more real news is being printed. Special features of this year’s paper were the “arrowhead” column that appeared in each issue and the fights that were made by the staff, for better lights, for bulletin boards and, against “defunct ads.” A daily was published during Golden Belt. Mr. P. Casper Harvey, Professor of Journalism is faculty adviser. 112 THE LEADER KuRT HAY KAN ' S AS NORMAL SCHOOL. HAYS. KANSAS. THU HSU AY. JANUARY Archer, Cummings, Clark and Callahan Win !

It was organized about three years ago and is now a permanent part of the school. The Assembly is conducted by a committee composed of a chairman, first vice chairman, and second vice chair- man, who hold their office for a term of ten weeks. These officers are nominated bv the students on the last Thursday of the term and on the following Monday the election is held. All students are eligible to vote. The newly elected officers take their oath the Thursday fol- lowing the election. On Thursday morning of each week the General Assembly is conducted by the students. Entertaining and instructive programs are rendered and all matters that are of general interest to the student body are offered for discussion. The purposes of the Organization are: The bringing about of “Socialism” instead of “Individualism” and the giving of valuable experience in the train- ing of self-expression and the creation of social center movements. This is the age of organization. It is the time when united efforts in any line of work count. We must work in harmony, for what we would be in the future depends largely upon what we are now.

The establishment of such a commission is permanent and we hope that it will last, and continue to do good throughout the future years. It is composed of seven members, chosen from the student body exclusively. Such things are recom- mended as can be carried out into the country home and community by each and every student. The chief purposes of the Commission are set forth in the preamble of the first commission. It reads: “Western Kansas rural life would be made more satisfactory by building up such institutions as would afford greater educational advantages, promote mutual welfare, make and develop public improvements and give rise to better living conditions in the community. These things may be brought about by efficient leaders acting through the social center and educational institutions.” An endeavor is made to train community leaders and improve the country life by solving the social and agricultural problems which are daily facing the commission. 116 Modern farms, which are homes, could be advanced greatly by such im- provements as: better roads, more automobiles, trees, community cream- eries and launderies. Members of first Commission were: Julia Keeler, E. H. Potter, A. M. Brown, D. H. Leighton, Irma Law, Marguerite Boomer, C. T. Glanville. This year’s Commission are: D. H. Leighton, Mayetta Klinger, Henry H. Sandy, Belle M. Hughes, Lyle Ramsey, Edna Walker, and Jesse Gatewood. Truckers Association N the spring of 1915 a plan was originated by Prof. E. B. Matthew whereby students so desiring might earn money to help pay their way through school and at the same time demonstrate an irrigation system that would be practical in Western Kansas. The plan was to organize the students who desired to work, into a Truckers Association, have each member of the association rent one-fourth acre of ground from the Normal School and farm it under direc- tion of the teacher of Agriculture. The crops were to be irrigated by means of the Normal irrigation system and the products to be marketed in the local markets, or shipped to good trade centers. About forty students took ad- vantage of this opportunity. Had the season been a favorable one there is no doubt but every member of the association would have made a large profit on his undertaking but the late frosts, blight, hail storms and exceptionally wet weather destroyed many of the plants and injured the others. Even with these drawbacks, the perse- verance of the students did not waver and some of the plots made very good yields although not comparable with a good year. Each bank of Hays offered a prize of ten dollars to the person dealing with them, who produced and sold the greatest quantity from his plot. The persons receiving these prizes were: Thomas Mock and LaRue Kiser. Although last year’s plan did not prove as successful as was anticipated a plan very similar to it is being tried this year. There will be fewer mem- bers in the association, each one will have a larger plot of ground and in- stead of having universal crops, each member of the association will be as- signed a certain crop which will be different from that of every other mem- ber, thus giving a larger variety of products which will make the problem of marketing less difficult. 117 German Club A.

February 3 the constitution was adopted and the officers elected. The object of this society is the mutual improvement of its members in the use of the German language and in the acquisition of a practical knowledge of German literature, art, music, and customs. Pro- grams are given semi-monthly. A typical program was given on the even- ing of February 29th consisting of Geothe ' s Biography and Works, and at the close of the meeting a Kaffee Klatsch was enjoyed. The Q. E. D. HE Q. E. D. is a Fort Hays Normal society composed of members of the junior and senior college classes who realize their obligations to the Fort Hays Normal, and wish to show their appreciation by being willing, at all times to assist any enterprise that will promote the wel- fare of the school. This society aims to accomplish its purposes through the efforts of individ- ual members working with the student body. The Q. E. D. society realizes that, in a large measure, the value of a diplo- ma or degree from a college depends upon the reputation and standing of the college, and they have pledged to use all honorable means to advance and maintain the character and efficiency of the Fort Hays Normal. OFFICERS President Lewis Keeler Vice President D. H. Leighton Secretary Lucile Felton Treasurer Eva Gatewood Sargeant-at-Arms Milo Stock EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Ida Solomon M. O’Laughlin Belle Hughes The Dining Club HE Dining Club is probably the most interesting place on the campus, especially at 7:00, 12:15 and 6:00. Anyone trying to pass through the corridors of the basement in the Agriculture Building at any of these hours would be surprised to see the large number of students there talk- ing light-heartedly while eagerly waiting for the meal to be called. When the gong for the meal sounds they file in and take their various places where the talk and laughter continues, while hearty appetites are being satisfied. The club is under supervision of a special committee composed of Miss Agnew, Mr. Speer and Miss Condit, and the work with the exception of the cooking is done by students who are working their way through school. In order that a larger number of students may have the opportunity to work, no student is allowed to work for more than his board. The price of meals is $2.60 per week. This low rate of board and the op- portunity it affords students to work their way through school is one of the chief factors in making the club what it is. It is not the idea of this organization to make a profit but only to afford the students an opportunity to obtain board at a cheaper rate than could be obtained elsewhere. There are at present 200 regular boarders and 24 noon boarders taking advantage of this opportunity. The club means a great deal to the student as a money saving proposition and also as a social center. There it is that the new students make their first acquaintances and get initiated into the real spirit of the school. The hour spent there is a good renovator for the nerves as well as the stomach. It makes you forget about studies and troubles while joining in the happy round of talk and laughter 121 Fort Hays Normal U K” Club E. H. Cummings Jesse Gatewood.. F ' red Albertson.

Governor’s Day OVERNOR’S DAY has become an annual event at the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School coincident with the opening of the Farmer’s and Housekeepers’ Special Course. This year the days entertainment far surpassed any held in the past. An elaborate parade was planned by the Pageant class and carried out by the students. Floats were built which depicted the agriculture of Russia, Sweeden, France, Ireland, Germany, Holland and Japan. The parade was led by the band which was followed by the Govenor’s car flanked on either side by girl escorts, clad in khaki uniforms. Behind the governor’s car fol- lowed the boats drawn by engines. Between the floats the classes marched in order of their ranking. Following these came the short course students and visitors. On returning to the normal the Governor rendered his address which was the official opening of the special course. At the close of Governor Capper’s address Secretary Mohler gave a talk about the agriculture of Kansas. The addresses had to be delivered from the south steps of Picken Hall because the auditorium would not accommodate the crowd. During the morning the Golden Belt Editorial conference held their semi- annual meeting and at noon partook of a luncheon served by the Domestic Science Department. It was no small feature of the day to observe the large crowd of really interested people from all over the state who attended not from curiosity, but for value received. The last feature of the day was the rendition of Gunod’s “Faust” by a picked chorus assisted by the Normal orchestra. 123 SWY Course GovbEscort StocV l vlKon Afewof the autos More f utos Panr Ae R.d imm£ 124 The Farmers’ and Housekeepers’ Short Course HE Farmers’ and Housekeepers’ Short Course as conduct- ed for three weeks each year at the Fort Hays Normal School serves a threefold mission in its influence. It is of value to those who enroll for the work given during the three weeks of the course ; it is of value to the school as an institution ; and it is of value to the Student Body individually and collectively. In this Short Course, farmers and housewives go to school with the boys and girls occupying the seats with them, studying the things that they study, demonstrating the same sort of problems and mixing their practical experi- ence with the theory of the school. There are courses given in blacksmith- ing, carpentering, animal husbandry, farming, farm problems, home art, home science, farm engines, household sanitation, grain judging, crafts, child welfare and millinery. The Short Course gives to the farmer a knowledge which will assist him in the purchase, raising and marketing of livestock. It also teaches him the methods of detecting defective, diseased or blemished animals. It gives him information concerning the soil, soil cultivation and the kind of crops best adapted to Western Kansas. The boys and young men receive training in farm blacksmithing, farm carpentry, the operation of steam and gas engines, live-stock and grain judg- ing all of which help to make better farmers for the future. At this farmers’ and housekeepers’ Short Course the housewives learn new and better methods of cooking, better foods to cook ; not more expen- sive, but more wholesome food ; how to convert the cheaper articles of food into delicious and palatable dishes, how to raise the baby, how to detect and avoid diseases, home ventilation and sanitation, purchase of food supplies, decoration of the home and the general equipment of a comfortable and well appointed home. If the housewife wishes it she can get in this Short Course, knowledge of dressmaking, of hair dressing, of the elements that constitute 125 simple, tasteful dressing and the training in determining the quality of goods which she purchases. The instruction which the girls receive in cooking, serving, baking, home nursing and home management will help to improve the future homes and make farm home life more pleasant and the rural district a more inviting place in which to live. There is much that the Normal School derives from this short course. It brings the faculty in touch with the people and the activities of Western Kansas. It creates sympathy and interest in the home life and the social and business activities of the people represented in the Fort Hays Normal School. The Community Center problems are more easily solved by the students who are familiar with the living concrete demonstration of what this school means by community center activities. It teaches the students how to or- ganize their community life with the one purpose of community betterment in mind. It compels the students to rub elbows in the class-rooms with peo- ple who have not had their scholastic experience and it teaches them that the hard knocks of experience are a valuable asset. To the school as a whole it develops an atmosphere of good will towards all men in whatever walk of life, and it perpetuates a spirit of earnestness and helpfulness that remains an enthusiasm for doing service in the com- munity. The school sends out graduates who because of the experience re- ceived thru this course are much better qualified to carry on the work of leadership in a community than they would otherwise have been. President’s Day N February 1, 1916, the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School celebrated the second annual President ' s Day. The guests of honor were: President. Ed. T. Hackney, and former governor E. W. Hoch of the State Board of Administration, Chancellor Frank Strong of University of Kansas, Pres. IT. J. Waters of Kansas State Agricul- tural College, and President Thos. W. Butcher of Kan- sas State Normal of Emporia. The chief feature of the day was the reception given to the students. The receiving line comprised, Pres, and Mrs. Lewis, Chancellor Strong, Pres. Waters, Pres. Butcher, E. T. Hackney and E. W. Hoch. The interest, loy- alty and solidarity of the student body is to be noted when ninety-five per cent, of the students met the heads of the other schools in whose honor the reception was given. The general program was given in the Normal auditorium at 9:30 A. M. The addresses given were all highly inspirational. Chancellor Strong struck the “key note of the day when he said, “We are a unit for education.” “The ultimate best will triumph,” is the motto this school has set for itself, said President Lewis, and its purpose is to intelligently try to discover the path of development for the people of Western Kansas. The spirit of the school shall always be sympathetic, patriotic, and demo- cratic. Our highest aim is to bring forth the greatest gift to any state or nation — a citizen so unselfish that he lives but to serve nobly. The principal speaker of the day was James R. Start, who, in a burst of impassioned and youthful eloquence, closed the general program of the morning with his address, “Calling, Calling, Calling,” followed by the pre- sentation of the bronze tablet as a tribute to W. A. Lewis, President of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School. The festivities of the day closed with the usual Faculty Recital given in the evening; Miss Pearle Sidenius, Soprano and Mr. Walter B. Roberts, Pianist. 127 wmstum vsmn ahs 111311003 mzz tiuia iZAiiyu orro 333033 03 A 0333011 at 3tfi ooitiiAiBOiii?, ot ooiAii Lim w u.mi.j ' Jiii m " TO T1I3I3 Ati ' tSjAAD TO T1I313 jUTlOil.TiUt 3311103 oooar 0 Hum om. muon ua ' zlooxm M$m ;i ■ JJA3 yLAaOiBO Oil Til3 MAAiB OaoOili) 03 0300 j " yj.

Walter E. Scott. .. Maude McMindes. Alois Beiker have been a student in the Fort Hays Normal with many kind and true friends is indeed a great privilege. It is, however, a sad thought that the memory of those days has a tendency to go with the closing of a College career. We who are here on the campus now cannot fully ap- preciate the force and significance of College episodes — those connecting links between past and present. But when we have passed beyond the pale of our Alma Mater, their real significance and true meaning comes to us with a new interpretation, then we realize that our college days have been the oasis of our lives. When the “old stories” waft back mem- ories of bygone times, then the spirit once so evident at such times as class picnics, hikes, banquets, flares up again and the alumnus is once more akin to the underclassmen, the memories of yesterday are made a part of the to- morrows. 129 The May Fete HE introduction into this country of the Old English May Day thru the medium of the American college, is a move- ment that has been greatly commended. The original observance of May Day, was a gala day of the people celebrating the triumph of spring over win- ter. Every community got together early in May, often the first day of the month, selected the May Oueen and her attendants, be- decked themselves gaily, and led by trumpeters who preceded the Queen and her ladies proceeded to some convenient spot in the open and started the day’s festivities. After crowning the Queen, various groups of dancers and trumpeters, and men famous for the use of the bow and arrow, and the broad-sword and the quarter staff, performed in honor of the Queen of the May. Among the gaily bedecked throng were always to be found the con- ventional fun-maker, the jesters and the hobby-horses, who kept the crowd in a rollicking good humor by their merry antics ; the Morris dances ; — al- ways men, — whose steps bespoke more of strength, agility, and rigorous life, than of grace and courtly manner: Robin Hood and his band of green clad Sherwood foresters, which always included Will Searlet, Little John, Friar Tuck, Jack in the Green, and Maid Marion, Milk-Maids and Shep- herdesses in characteristic garb and carrying milk-pails or shepherd’s crooks. Each group in turn danced its favorite dance, sang many May-time songs, joined with friends around the May-Pole in a May-Pole dance, and thus passed the entire day in festivities. This year the womens’ gymnasium classes, with the help of the pageant class, will stage, as near as possible, an exact reproduction of the old Eng- lish May Fete. We plan to make this an all-school affair, the fete to be pre- ceded by a picnic held at a selected spot along the creek. The picnic will start at five o’clock and the May Fete at six. If this proves successful, we hope to make it an annual affair. 130 SKI • o.w Fort Hays Normal School Rifle Club [N the twenty-first day of April, 1916, a number of the young men of the Fort Hays Normal who were interest- ed in outdoor sports, met and organized a government Rifle Club. This club is the first of the sort to be organ- ized in this institution. Altho the club does not expect to do much this summer in the way of actual practice, the members are very enthusiastic about the work and steps have already been taken to have everything in readiness so as to begin practice in earnest at the beginning of the fall term of school. Both indoor and outdoor prac- tices will be held regularly. The object of this organization is the encour- agement of military rifle shooting. OFFICERS Ralph C.

The ceremonies were in charge of the Student Assembly. Roy E. Frey of Sylvan Grove was marshall of the day. Walter E. Scott of Oakley, presi- dent of the senior class, presented Lew Wallace of Lucas, chairman of the Student Assembly, with the spade, and Wallace turned the first spade full of dirt. The Fort Hays Hymn was sung by the student body and a photograph was taken to be preserved among the relics to be placed in the corner stone. Sheridan Coliseum is the new $100,000 building which was granted by the last legislature. It is to be fire proof throughout and will have an audi- torium with a seating capacity of thirty-six hundred. In letting the contract it was discovered that it would be necessary to raise $101,000. The legislature had only provided for $100,000. C. G. Cochran of Plain ville and FI. J. Penney of Hays provided out of their own pockets the additional $1,000. This is only one example which is typical of the interest that Western Kansas people have in the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School. Altho the official contract gives until July, 1917 to have the building com- pleted, the superintendent, Mr. Henry Mickel wages a Christmas dinner that he will have the entire building completed by December 25, 1910. 132 SIISES I Fort Hays Normal Library N order to appreciate fully the social advantages of the F. H. N. Library, one should stroll in after supper. While it is true that day sessions are quite interesting as well as instructive, classes interfere quite seriously at times, and besides the day seems to lack the whole-heartedness of the evening. The door-vie wing-seats are usually occupied by those who are “on to the ropes.” The opportunity to see and to be seen, and a broader view of the whole library are some of the advantages to be gained by such a location. From this point of vantage one can easily watch the de- velopment of the social instinct found alike on the campus and in the library. The development of this instinct manifests itself in a variety of ways. It is noticeable not only in the graceful damsel who flits with ease from the reading table to the magazine rack, thence to the book shelves and back to the place of beginning, arriving in time to shuffle a few papers before be- ginning the same route at the time scheduled, but also in the verdant fresh- men who deposits his ungainly carcass in the first chair available and blushes deeply when he finally looks up and finds that only the table is separating him from the “fairy” he met at the picnic. However, absurd it may seem, there are men who do not appreciate the social advantages of a library. They are, of course, the same individuals who oppose all of the various systems of note lending. No one, perhaps, will deny that such systems are in vogue. In fact, it heads the list of successful get-rich-quick methods of studying. The interval between the first and sec- ond recitation bell, when employed to good advantage and under proper conditions has often proved sufficient to carry one thru a stormy recitation. Especially in the large classes, some generous hearted individual is almost sure to have studied the lesson. The views from the library windows do not add greatly to its social at- tractiveness. Because on long sunny afternoons the vast expanse of plains in the west are conductive to dreams, and, looking over the rooms, one can see many living in the glorious future, seeing the splendid boats on Big Creek anchored at the landing and hearing the sparkling stream gurgling over the cement dam below the “spoonholder” and the gentle wind whisper- ing in the trees, while the shadows lengthen and deepen on some beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. 133 a .... ■ V ' r iz w ■ " i V’ T 134 i,k 389b Editors Note those who have the curiosity to look into these pages, we wish to say a few words in explanation.

He must be of a commanding complexion, domineering in his bearing and able to perform gym- nastic exercises for the pleasure of the audience. Gen- erally speaking, orchestras are in demand. Especially the kind that makes soulful m ' usic. The individual mem- bers must wear last year’s clothes and long hair. Or- chestras are divided into two classes. Those who play for compensation (money) and those who get money for playing. If the first violin is a Ger- man and eats garlic, the sweeter the music, and conversely if the basoon player is young and healthy, or if the oboe player still retains the use of his mental faculties, the orchestra does pretty well, considering. A good orches- tra can take the most difficult piece of music and tear it to tatters and leave unharmed, but should music be rendered that appeals to the people, the or- chestra should be built up bv adding two viola players and a drum section. If one should hear an “Opus 5( 72” rendered in open style (i. e. without rup- turing the ear drum) he should go away at once, and be sure to tell every- one the orchestra is punk. Orchestras, once having passed the age of adoles- cence sometimes live to a ripe old age and die of rheumatiz. This occurs but rarely, and in warm climates. For the most part, they never survive the tender age of three years, seven months, and twenty-one days, A. D. ( l L -U f . FR£5HMEj| milk Tamimc NOT FED, 6TA MATion, HE’S DEAD.

Brass Band band consists of a slide trombone, otherwise known as the sliphorn, and others. Each member of a band wears a tight fitting suit, and an instrument of destruction called a musical instrument. They are, however, more for the enjoyment of the band than for any one else. The different machines of a band are: the cornet, which is usually made of brass, or some other precious metal, of a cylindrical shape and about the size of a bottle or dill pickle. With this the player can perform wonders. The most wonderful thing is that he does not swallow the instrument whole. To prevent this from happening, the small end, or month piece, is not taken in past the lips or teeth. The piccolo is famed for its beauty and lasting music which it produces in cop- ious quantities. In fact, the quantities which it produces is almost too severe for man, or any other animal of the human race. The clarinet, or squeal stick is a beautiful instrument of many ornaments. It is shaped like a cigar and can produce noises here-before unknown to mankind. This instrument requires a player to use his fingers and one tooth. With these parts of the anatomy working in perfect unison, the sound produced is not unlike that produced by a small boy with a stick passing a picket fence. The other in- struments in a band only hold their places through their looks, including the conductor who usually wears a frown and long hair. A band approaching an unsuspecting individual usually presents a sinister aspect. Their destruc- tive power is seldom realized until the strains of “Red, White, and Blue” strikes upon the ear. The striking power of such a strain is also remarkable. In fact the stroke is usually so quick that the ear cannot stand the strain. Bands are organized for the purpose of getting people into a greater brotherhood. They are usually successful. The plan is this ! No commun- ity is strong against invasion without a perfectly organized brotherhood. Therefore, united they stand, divided they succumb. 139 FACULTY INK06RAPH5 Now, on T) e Lvn iW-g WTTta, e TvosttWheV l Jo-b a- •bq ' Jmt 140 A Fable N the long ago, there lived on the Windy, Wild, and Woolly Plains of Kansas, a young Hopeful who was destined to become Great. At least the neighbors pointed him Out as he passed by. His father thought probably the office of President would just about do, while his mother want- ed him to become a second Henry Ward Beecher. And he was held in High Contempt by the neighbor’s children who called him Sissy and threw Stones unjustly. But when he had attained the tender age of four years, he delivered his opening Speech in the first M. G. Church, and the wonderful career was upon it’s way. And the Neighbor’s children re- ceived the cold Shoulder. And from henceforth did he give speeches in the school and churches of the community in which he resided. And the fourth of July also received it’s quota of speeches from his lips. Even with the stars and Stripes gathered in artistic folds about him would he thunder forth. And the people gave ear and said he was Great, and some Potatoes and Just Fine. And the noise of clapping hands and applauding multitudes were as music to his ears. Also was his name not unknown in foreign lands. For thirty miles about they sang his praises. His name was placed beside the names of Bankers and the Young Hopeful’s heart was glad, and his head was doomed to burst. And when he had safely passed through the County High School through the Influence of the teachers and his paternal ancester, he was chosen as the class orator. And he did so. And the marvelous work was now completed, and the very hat which before sat so jauntily upon his head was like a postage stamp on a dry-goods box. And the proud parents discussed his future, and it was decided to allow this precious flower to go alone to conquer the world. Forthwith a school was chosen, and by reason of apparent proximity and teachings it was considered the best. But it chanced that the young Hope- ful arrived at the wrong time, and the band heralded not his approach, nor was the President of the school present. Only a man to show him his hall 141 bed-room. And when he had arrived at the school, the Registrar knew him not, neither did the students call him great, and sad was the heart of the young Hopeful. And he was resolved to go back to his father’s house, but there were no trains. Entering an Ice Cream parlor, he was resolved to eat an Ice Cream soda and perish. And with this resolve he was heartened and internal poultices of Ice Cream proved a balm to his sore and stricken dis- tress. And he was resolved to go forth again and conquer the world. And when he had entered the School, his aspirations were known to even P. Cam- per Handy, and it was so. And it seemed not long till his aspirations were pricked by the points of knowledge. And the Cap which he once wore, was as a shroud, and the big head was no more.

Our LONG DISTANCE toll lines are constructed of copper wire, which enables one to carry on a conversation with a party in Salina or Topeka as easily and clearly as to your neighbor across the road. Having these facts in view they should afford encouragement even to the most skeptical to modern methods and conveniences. The Hays Telephone Company H. F. ADDISON, Mgr. Telephone 338 Hays, Kansas J.

Cashier Citizen’s State Bank Hays City, Kansas Capital, 150,000 Surplus, 115,000 j DEAR STUDENT: j In the payment of bills, one of the most important things i is to have a receipt for the money expended— and the simplest | and easiest way is to make payment by check. When you pay i an account with a check, that check is endorsed by the person | or firm receiving it, and then passes through the bank. This | gives you a perfectly valid and legal receipt, and once each j month you receive a statement of your account and all of these 1 checks are returned to you. | By making the proper additions for deposits and subtrac- | tions for checks issued on the stubs of your check book, you | have a perfect bookkeeping system that shows you what you t have paid, when you paid it and to whom the amount was paid | and what it was for. More than one hundred forty students t look after their financial affairs through the Citizens State ! Bank. Won’t you call and see our cashier and let him explain t just what is necessary in the maintenance of a checking ac- | count?

We Invite Your Patronage “The Store That’s Always Busy” ££3 The Graduate The ships that sail from the busy port, In coats of bright veneer, Are not the ships that are sure to bear Their load on a long career. The ships that scan not ahead, their paths, To dodge the cavils far, Now bravely sail o’er the foaming sea, Now feebly strand on the bar. The ships that fill all their holds with coal, Their engines cleaned and oiled, Will bravely sail o’er the foaming sea, With flags of success unfoiled. The students who do just the tasks assigned, In class and nothing more, Will find themselves when their lots are cast. In rooms on the lower fioor. Tis now, when long they have searched in vain, For men who scorn them not, ’Tis now they stand in the rushing throng, In want of things forgot. f. w. A. 174 4«AJ«hB Aft M , E : ■ ft . . s ym .
