The Training School. lili HE Fort Hays Kansas Normal School is a teachers’ college devoted to the preparation of men and women for a public service. Teacher training is the specific and fundamental function of the school. Naturally ; in such an institution, the Training School constitutes the care of instruction. By an arrangement with the City of Hays, the public schools of the city constitute the Training School of the Normal, furnishing ample facilities for observation, investigation and practice. Professor C. A. Shively, head of the Training Department, is ex-officio Superintendent of the City Schools, and has general direction of the teacher training work. He is assisted by a compe- tent corps of regular room teachers and supervisors. A good ten room grade building and a modern fire proof high school build- ing capable of accommonating 300 students, both buildings well equipped, furnish almost ideal facilities for the Training School. Fifty-seven 1919 THE REVEILLE Fine Arts. N the Fine Arts Department the Normal School believes in teaching- art for use. It has been getting away from the idea that art is for the favored few. An artistic decision is made whenever a choice is made of the least article of furniture or whenever clothes are purchased. Methods of teaching in this department make use of the design method which deals with wholes and unities. The work of this department is practical. F.H.N. students’ Black and White designs. Crafts problems by students. Useful articles made at a very small cost. Fifty-ejglit 1919 VICTORY EDITION Miusic Department. O courses offered in this institution are in greater demand than the courses in Music which were offered to meet a most insistent demand upon the part of young men and women of Western Kansas. Every effort is made to meet all the needs in a musical way of the great empire which this institution must serve. The preparation of teachers, the training of artists and the instruction of those desiring to prepare themselves as creative musicians is adecpiately met From year to year the department has been strengthened and enlarged, and while most excellent work has been done in the past, the eyes of this depart- ment are on the future and not on its past achievements. The band, orchestra and various choruses including the great festival chorus offered unprecedented advantages.

HE largest single activity in which the students and faculty partici- pated was the Music Festival Week which was held eight days be- ginning Sunday, May 4th. For five years the School had been looking forward to this event. For five years the Music Department under the leadership of Henry Edward M.alloy had been preparing not only the School but the people of Western Kan- sas for a Music Festival Week in which the Normal School could become truly the home and center of “Singing Western Kansas into Tune.” The phrase, “Singing Western Kansas into Tune” was coined in 1915 by John E. Pickett, now the associate editor of the Country Gentleman of Phila- delphia. This phrase has become more than a slogan or a motto. It is the watchword of half a state. Mr. Malloy’s first chorus was one of 145 voices and sang “ ' The Creation ' The chorus this year had seats assigned to 691 persons. No other part of the United States affords better conditions for the growth of musical appreciation and culture. The altitude is high but not too high ; the moisture is not too excessive ; the atmosphere is free from smoke and germ- laden dust. More people have good voices under these climatic conditions than any other section of the nation. The people themselves are but a genera- tion away from the pioneers and everyone has within him the stuff of which the pioneers were made — the very stuff that best enjoys the best of music. For five years musical critics in New York and elsewhere have been acclaim- ing the rise of the new music center in Kansas. The Music Festival of May 4th to May nth is the result of five years’ endeavor and preparation. Concerning the Festival this year the Hutchinson News says: “The artists which the management of the Fort Hays Festival has secured present the greatest amount of talent of world fame that has been compressed into any one week in Kansas in several years.” The slogan for the Music Festival Week was coined by Margaret Chitten- den, one of the members of the School’s Journalism class: “Western Kansas will hear world famous artists in Western Kansas.” No longer will the peo- ple of this part of the state be forced to travel long distances to hear musicians of world-wide reputation. The Topeka State Journal says: “People from forty counties in Western Kansas will make Hays their Mecca for their musical feast this year.” The citizens of Hays and the members of the faculty who compose the guarantors of the Music Festival Week are as follows: W.

Miss Eyler of the faculty and Miss Grass of the English Depart- ment also appeared on this program. When this is written the Festival is yet in the near future and it would not be fitting to comment upon it. But early in April the interest which people oL : Western Kansas seem to have taken in the Festival is nothing short of phen- omenal. The ticket sale opened Monday, April 21st, but by Monday Morning, April 7th (which this was written) there had been requests for booklets to be sent to 5315 persons. The mailing list for the souvenir booklets will therefore number well toward 6000 individuals. Great credit is due the Western Kansas newspapers for helping boost the Music Festival Week. Everyone of them did much toward informing the people about what many of them said was the most significant musical event in Kansas this year. Along with this it may be properly added that the music magazines of New York and Chicago were more than cordial toward the inauguration of a new music festival in America and many of their comments were nothing less than flattering. The calendar for the week was: Sunday, May 4th. 3:30 p.m. — Mine. Matzenauer. 8:30 p.m. — “The Messiah.” Monday, May 5th. 3:30p.m. — Program of Dances, assisted by Mine.

N the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School the department of English occupies a position of unique ubiquity — the school’s paradox but not the school sphinx. The Department of English through its head finds itself one day sounding a fog horn in the mist of Browning philosophy or fiction technique — and the next flooding Western Kansas with newspaper publicity. Mr. Harvey writes about everything connected with the school but himself and his department. He enjoys giving a classroom lecture on George Meredith and then interview- ing the Ellis County sheriff to obtain a story for the Kansas City Star. During the past year the English Department has been handicapped by the lack of an instructor in public speaking. Mr. Harvey formerly was the debate and oratory coach and won three consecutive state contests in oratory and much renown for the school ' s intercollegiate debaters. But Mr. Harvey was forced to give up forensic coaching when his newspaper and literary activities became more numerous. However, next year there will be an instructor in public speaking. The need of an intense interest in literature in Western Kansas is recog- nized by the department and the manner of teaching every English class has this need in view. “Literature and reading are forms of living " is the depart- ment ' s precept and its dogma as well. The department endeavors to fit into the School ' s service to the Western Kansas and give the students a vision of dynamic force of good literature. Sixty- seven 191 9 ft H THE REVEILLE _ Department of Commerce. mm HE mental equipment of the business man needs to be greater today than was ever before necessary. Just as the sphere of the business man ' s action has broadened with the new position our country has taken in the world’s affairs, so have the needs of broad understanding of sound principles increased. The methods of a quarter of a century gone by, will not do. The great business world requires an army of men and women thoroughly equipped for efficient service. Our Commercial Department has been reorganized to meet the growing demand of Western Kansas for thorough business training. We will train {.hose who wish to teach and others who wish to use their education for com- mercial purposes. . The best instructors who can be secured will be placed in charge of the work. No course will be included in the Commercial Department that is not essential. Emphasis will be placed on facts that have stood up under actual business conditions. We want to give every person in Western Kansas an opportunity to get a practical business education in the shortest possible time and with small ex- pense. Sixty- eight 1919 I VICTORY EDITION ] W ACTIVITIES. Projects. FARMING THEIR WAY THROUGH COLLEGE. By P. Caspar Harvey. From the Country Gentleman, December 22, 1917. (Editor’s note. — The following extracts from the magazine article are reprinted to illustrate the vision of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School concerning its project system. It will be noted, of course, that the article was prepared early in the fall of 1917 and while immediate conditions have changed somewhat because of the war the vision of the school remains the same.) N the last frontier, where farming is the only method of living, the war readjustments came quickest. The same ground — the very center of what was formerly known as the Great American Desert, the old Fort Flays Military Reservation — on which Col. YV. F. Cody won his sobriquet of Buffalo Bill, and which Sheridan and Custer used as headquarters when quelling the last savage up- risings of the plains, is again the center of a struggle. This region to-day draws every available person to the soil in the nation ' s effort to increase food production. Two years ago this struggle would have denied a college education to the boys and girls of the famous short-grass country. To-day the effort to in- crease food production actually draws them to college on that same military reservation. The reason is that the only state educational institution of higher learning, on the Great Plains raises and conserves enough food on its campus to enable the first native generation of the plains to stay in college now. This institution is the Fort Hays Normal School at Hays City, Kansas. Its activities are fourfold : Students go to school, farm, use their own products, and conserve food simultaneously. The last three are opportunities, but the combination is necessary. Here, in order for many students to acquire their college education, they must not only use and conserve food, they must pro- duce their own products. For the fiscal year just ended these products repr e- Sixty-nlne 1919 sented a total of $50,227.41, of which $16,975.05. was the net labor income to the 165 individuals from the student body who participated. While some still depend on dad and others make only part of their way, many students make their entire way. However, there is no limit to the num- ber of students who can earn all expenses, because the campus of the school contains 4300 acres. To every boy and girl of Western Kansas : “Have enough money to get on the campus. If you will farm, garden, milk cows, churn butter, raise chickens, slop pigs, peel potatoes, wash dishes or keep bees, you can get your college education ' Ti-ie Longings of ti-ie Pioneer. The Western Kansas young man and woman have within them the long- ings of the pioneer and a hankering after book learning. It is a peculiar com- posite of peculiar simples. Family after family from the East came to West- ern Kansas soon after Custer, Miles and Forsythe drove away the Indians. Most of them lost all they possessed and went back. A few had the nerve and grit to stick it out. The faith of these pioneers overcame grasshoppers, drought, hot winds, one-crop farms, no markets, and the loneliness of the prairie homes. The children whom these pioneers brought with them or who were born during the struggling years are now on the farms of this part of the state. The children who were born after a foothold had been won in the short grass are now old enough for a college education. To meet the unexpressed needs the project system was inaugurated. When the Government began to ask for support of the wav program, Presi- dent W. A. Lewis, of the only short-grass college, found that this institution was already at work at it, and could go ahead without stopping to install any new machinery. When the call for volunteers first came the boys of the Fort .Hays institution left almost in a body, and when the National Army recruited its quotas the national call for girls and women to take the places of men on the farm was echoed on the Fort Hays campus, not by an appeal for girls to go into the fields, but for a few more girls to move up into the places left vacant by the soldiers. The girls, some of them, were already earning their way through college by farming. The unique thing about the system is that, with all this emphasis placed on industrial subjects as the means of living and as training for life on the farms of Western Kansas, the departments of music and literature are the most patronized ones in the school. Culture is not for its own sake, but for the sake of life. There is not a period of isolation, but a period of living by actually doing. Music and literature take root in that kind of soil. The project which commands the most students is gardening. In all, sixty- two students, twelve of them girls — but this is for the fiscal year and under Seventy 1919 VICTORY EDITION many months of pre-war conditions — earned during the past fiscal year a net income of $7,882.95. Despite the fabled hot winds of Western Kansas and the drought of the past eighteen months, the gardens were not materially damaged. Two irrigation stations pumped 800 gallons of water a minute from the campus lake into the rows of vegetables when it was most needed. The lake itself was obtained by a dam across Big Creek draw. There is no truck gardening in Western Kansas. Climatic conditions seem to preclude it. " ' Beat the hot winds by a month " has been the motto of the tomato growers among the sixty-two. This season the crop value of each acre of tomatoes was $200. At the time when the blossoms come on the hot winds begin to blow. Vines but no fruit was the result. The seed is planted in greenhouses about March tenth. April first the plants are transferred in indi- vidual boxes to cold frames. By a gradual process of hardening off the plants are accustomed to the Western Kansas winds and sun. They are planted in irrigation tracts about May tenth. In this way the young fruit will have set on before the hot winds blow. With five boys at work the field-crops project of ninety acres produced 114 tons of corn and kafir silage for a net income of $19.42 an acre, which also included eighty tons of alfalfa. The eight boys and two girls who selected the daily project were able to clear on the average $205.50 apiece. Thirty cows were in the project. Six boys with seventyseven hogs earned, above all expenses, a total of $692.60. The creamery made twelve girls $78 apiece. The poultry project interested nine girls and three boys, with a total valuation of $250. The greenhouses netted $312.70. The bees have been on the campus only a few months, but earned $21.90 above expenses. The students’ dining-hall project, during the fiscal year, had an income of $25,600.66, and its expenses were $25,557.16. There are forty-one students working in this project and the cost of their board is included in the operating expenses. Twenty-nine girls are in this project, but boys are no longer permitted to enter it, since their labor is so valuable in the fields. There are no downtown boarding houses or small boarding clubs of the students. Some girls earn their way by work in private families, and no boys “bach. " Everyone eats at this project, including several members of the faculty. It is maintained under student management and control, and un- der the supervision of the domestic science instructors. The gross production of the eight producing projects amounted during the fiscal year to $24,626.75. This was produced by 124 students, making an average gross income of $198.60 for each student. The 124 students thus produced $4,648.68 worth of food over and above their own consumption. The projects are independent of each other. Their products must compete on the open market. One project cannot holster up a weak one. The dining Seventy-one TJ1Y = THE REVEILLE project itself has bought from the dairy only $4,263.30 during the year. But individual students have sold it practically all of its vegetables. It would be suicide to permit any cooperation without economic competition. As the sys- tem enlarges and as time goes by the cooperation will gradually increase. This competition must be not only in price but also in quality and facility in hand- ling. As an example, the dining hall uses only certain cuts of pork and buys them on the open market. The pig-project boys sell their hogs on the open market. Cooperation without economic competition would not conserve food. The crops, in order of extent of cultivation, were potatoes, sweet com, beans, cantaloupes, tomatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, ' watermelons, celery, cab- bage, radishes, lettuce, turnips, spinach and pumpkins. The total crop was $9,600.95, making an average yield of $174.54 an acre and a net yield of $143.32 an acre. The vegetables were sold on the open market in surround- ing towns and in Hays, as well as to the dining-hall project students. Peo- ple from Norton, Woods ton, Russell, Ellis and Scott City motored to the gardens to purchase from the boys and girls themselves on their plots of ground. Scott City is 100 miles from Hays City, Norton is sixty miles, and Oakley is eighty miles. The land overhead expense to the student project workers is eight dollars an acre and the water supply amounts on the average to nine dollars an acre for die year. An official survey of the school ' s student body and its scholarship, to make sure that the project system was not hindering class-room work and standards, brought out the fact that scholarships and grades and school honors went to the people who worked their way through school. The project workers were massed in the 1 foo-hour group, the students who did not work their wav pre- dominated in the 900 and the 800 hour groups, while no project workers were found in the lowest groups. The spirit and solidarity of the school have been expressed in a bronze tablet. It adorns Sheridan Coliseum, a big stone building on the plains, seat- ing 3600 persons, in which are given tractor shows, grand operas, livestock shows, oratorios, automobile shows, dramas, basketball games, conventions and tennis matches. Out here in the heart of the short grass, where in the not distant past roamed the last Indians and wallowed the last buffaloes, the drive to increase food production by making its conservation and production keep boys and girls in college has not resulted in a technical school or in the building up of an industrial center. President W. A. Lewis does not believe in culture for its own sake. " Cul- ture for its own sake teaches away from the farm ' he says. In his opinion the much talked about propanganda which preaches " toward the farm " is one of the most pernicious doctrinaires before the public today. Not only does the Seventy-two 1919 VICTORY EDITION project system swat this “toward-the-farm” idea, but it also creates of itself an atmosphere of “within the farm ’ Teaching “within the farm” has within it no lost motion in the transplanting of misfits or in the satisfying of the dis- contented. But President Lewis, knowing that “within the farm” consisted in more than raising crops or breeding livestock, emphasizes above all others the study of music and literature — music as a community study and literature as a cul- tural life force within the individual. President Lewis brought Henry Edward Malloy to Fort Hays to begin “Singing Kansas into tune.” His mission in Western Kansas was to bring music to everybody, not for the sake of the music, but for the sake of the indi- vidual, the community and the state. He was to teach people to sing, to come together in community choruses, orchestras and bands. Malloy has produced three operas and two oratorios. For two years he presented Haydn’s oratorio, The Creation. The chorus of 168 voices was composed of students from the school. They were boys and girls who were used to the free expanse of Kansas plains. Most of them had never heard of an oratorio until asked to sing in one. But the spirit of the pioneers had not been “cultured” out of them. They sang it, and sang it to the acclaim of visit- ing music critics. President Lewis realized that the ' ‘with in-the-f arm” teaching was not com- plete without the individual life of the boy and girl being pointed out to them as such. When he asked me to head the Department of English he never mentioned during the entire negotiations whether I was to emphasize Sanskrit or phil- ology. His first official suggestion after I became a member of the faculty was that I get up an exhibition of farm advertising. To say I was nonpulsed is putting it mildly. I sent out eighty-nine letters to people and institutions and firms whom 1 supposed would know about farm advertising. I received one reply and no material. The exhibit the department finally got together repre- sented t 6S farmers, and numbered 1725 units from fourteen states and Can- ada. A statement of mine at the time, three years ago — “The farmer is the greatest potential advertiser in the United States and to-day only realizes that he ought to advertise” — was taken up by an advertising journal or two and discussed seriously. The experience took me off the Sinai from which I hand- ed down my decalogues about the classics. “Within ti-ie Farm.” As I began to catch the vision my first impression was to throw away the text-books, because they did not teach “within the farm.” They seemed to hold up city fellows as the heroes. They seemed to make the boys and the girls discontented on the farm and long for the big, wide, wide world. This Seventy-three ' T9T9 idea did not last long. The whole trouble was with the mass of critical mate- rial attached to the classes as information or the great amount of time given to dissecting masterpieces and holding clinics over the remains. I began to teach the students to read down through the book into them- selves. I showed them how to find in the masterpieces of literature their own un revealed tendencies, to uncover their own undiscovered passions and to realize their own unexpressed thoughts about life, love and God. In direct response to this vision of teaching “within the farm " the depart- ment of English has two courses, one for college freshmen and sophomores and one for college juniors and seniors, that are purely reading laboratory courses. I use a list of 120 titles from Homer to Wells. I have left out the classics or the writers which have a special place in other courses. In a school with so much attention of necessity given to the practical, the majority of the graduates in addition to their vocational major have also car- ried an English major, and the 1917 class, containing twenty-one people who received their bachelor ' s degree, had eleven who were in this group. It takes the combination of agriculture, music and literature to rob farm life of its “man-with-the-hoe” conception and to give the “within-the-farm” movement dynamic life. This combination also helps the war drive for more food production and conservation and keeps our boys and girls in college now. The Dining Hall. | HE Normal School Dining Elall is run on a cooperative basis and with a two-fold purpose. This is the furnishing of board to the students of the school at a price which is not excessive and the giving of the opportunity to help earn his way through school to the student who wishes it. The management of the Club is vested in a faculty committee and two stu- dents. These students serve as matron and steward respectively. The matron is the general supervisor of the dining hall at meal times and the steward has charge of the funds of the Club. The faculty committee who supervise the Club donate their time and labor. Miss Condi t has very efficiently managed the Club for the students as well as for the S.A.T.C. this year. The Clubs offers a’ market for many of the products of the school gardens, the dairy and the creamery thus cooperating with the other projects to the mutual benefit of all. The Club is a social center for the students of the school. They are seated at tables of eight and the meal hours are no small part of the student life. Friendships are formed in the congeniality of Club life that cannot but be a factor in after life. Seventy-four 1919 One corner of Normal Dining Hall. Another corner of Normal Dining Hall.

Pie is required to pay the general overhead expenses and for the water used in irrigation at the cost of pumping. A trucker ' s association is formed of the students engaged in gardening and farming to cooperate in purchasing seeds and selling the products. The irrigible land is fanned intensively; the remainder is devoted to dry land farming. The fact that each student engaged in project gardening is conducting his own business, managing his own finances and planning for himself is in itself preparation for his place in the world. Seventy-seven 1919 N THE REVEILLE D airy an A C reamery. AIRYING is one of the practical projects of the school. It is organ- ized with the two-fold purpose of enabling students to obtain a col- lege education by giving paying work and supplying a practical ap- plication of theories learned in the class room. In the dairy project the students either own their own cows or manage a number loaned by the school. The dairy products are sold and the students credited with his share of the net earnings. It has been demonstrated that the profit from three or four good cows will pay the necessary expenses of a student while in school. The creamery project is in substance a partnership between the farmers of the community who sell cream and the student who makes the butter. Each farmer’s cream is given an individual test and churning. The result of this is reported to the cream consigner, a certain per cent of the sale price of the butter is given to the student for labor and overhead expense and the balance remitted to the patron, thus making the partnership complete and mutually beneficial.

TEE7IITH the governing ' and administrative officers of the School commun- ity, the Student Council of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School is the governing body in all matters that concern student organiza- tions and enterprises. It is the representative body of the student body. The members of the Student Council must be qualified members of the class which they represent. They are elected by a quorum of their class. The officers of the Council are president, vice-president, secretary and treas- urer. The Student Assembly is the community center of the School. It convenes once a week with the object of providing entertainment for the student body and training for students along the line for which they have talent, such as, public speaking, singing, or playing. The Assembly is presided over by a student president. The other officers of the Assembly are two vice-presidents, secretary and treasurer. These offi- cers are nominated by the executive council and elected by the vote of the en- tire student body. It is the duty of the officers to plan the assembly programs. Eighty-five : - 19 19 « 1 THE REVEILLE The Leader. H HE Leader is the newspaper of the School community. It is the offi- cial publication of the student body and is under the direction of a board of control composed of two faculty members, P. Caspar Harvey and C. A. Shively, and three students, Ada Law, Agnes Arrington and the president of the General Assembly. Ada Law is chairman of the board. The managing editor is elected by ballot by the paid up sub- scribers of the publication in May for the ensuing year. John Lindquist was thus elected in May 1918. P ecause of his call to the army, George Bear was chosen by the board of control for the 1918 summer term and Agnes Arring- ton for the regular school year 1918-1919 to serve in place of John Lindquist while he was in the army. It is the mission of the Leader to mirror public opinion, to chronicle events and to herald what is to come. The Leader has gone to our boys in the army and navy throughout the war. It has sought to be a link between the school and the boys at the front, to keep them informed of campus events and to bear to them news of friends among the Alumni and students. The Managing Editors 1917-1918 were Frank Sullivan, Ralph Archer, and Glenn Archer. The army claimed these boys one by one when they were succeeded by other editors. The Managing Editor for 1918-1919 is Agnes Ruth Arrington. At present the Leader Staff is composed of: Mary Brull, Harold Pyles, Merle Caswell, Margaret Chittenden, Myrtle Divine and Victoria Unruh. These with Agnes Arrington comprise the advanced class in Journalism. Elghtv-slx 1919 VICTORY EDITION I m Eighty -seven 1919 THE REVEILLE The Red C ross.

Every boy in school and the men of the faculty are eligible to. membership in the organization. The Y.M.C.A. has two aims, spiritual and mental. Its first object is to lead young men into vital relationship with the man, Christ. Weekly devotional meetings are held with capable men as leaders. Topics of vital interest to boys are discussed.

INCE the last issue of the Reveille two President’s Days have taken place. The occasion has become an event looked forward to with an interest second only to Commencement Day. Even then all the School looks forward to President’s Day in somewhat the same way that two classes anticipate the graduation ceremonies. The j 9 1 8 President ' s Day was held Feb. 12th. Mr. Shively was the Pre- siding Officer. He happily said in his opening remarks that four years ago President ' s Day was an innovation ; three years ago a celebration; two years ago an anniversary and that year a custom. In bis opening statement as pre- siding officer of the 19T9 Day, Mr. Plarvey recalled Mr. Shively ' s category and added that President ' s Day was now a tradition of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School — perhaps its first tradition. Mr. Shively presided at the formal program on the morning of President’s Day 1918 and the speakers were, Merle Caswell, Burton M. Clark, P. Caspar Harvey, C. A. Shively and President Lewis. Miss Kathryn McLain was toastmaster at the dinner. The reception at night was an enjoyable one and largely attended. Mr. Harvey presided at the morning program of the 1919 occasion and the speakers included Miss Ada Law, Floward Harold, C. A. Beeby, president of the Flays Chamber of Commerce; P. Caspar Plarvey and E. W. Hoch of the Board of Administration. Mrs. Ruth B. Davis was toastmaster at the banquet and Dr. Wilbur N. Mason of the Board, principal speaker at the banquet. The reception at night was perhaps the most successful one yet held and all the boys and girls of the student body were present as well as very many of the Hays citizens. The dining room at the dinner was the most beautifully decorated banquet hall yet seen at a President ' s Day. The spirit of the School was in the heart of everyone. 1 It is a proper state- ment to say the annual President’s Day has inculcated a spirit of solidarity in the School and has contributed much towards the formation of other tradi- tions at the youngest of all the state schools. 1919 Ninety Y. W. C. A. ORT Hays Kansas Normal School Y.W.C.A. is one of its izations. It has a membership of one hundred and fifty girls. It was organized by Miss Lucy Riggs, the Field Secretary of the West Central Field, on March 3, 1917. Under the auspices of the Y.W.C.A. and Y.M.C.A, the School raised $1500 for the Students’ Friendship Fund. At the beginning of every school term the Y.W.C.A. gives an all school ‘ ' mixer” to which all students of the School are invited. Regular devotional meetings of the Y.W.C.A. are held every week. The Y.W.C.A. has this year sent a delegate to the National Y.W.C.A. Stu- dent Conference at Evanston, Illinois, and one to the Student Volunteer Band Conference of Kansas at McPherson. The 1919 Spring program of the Y.W.C.A. is peculiarly ambitious and of interest to college girls. It is a campaign which has as its aim the informing, regarding world conditions, of girls now in college to fit them for taking then- place in the world as college women during the reconstruction days before us.

EALIZ 1 NG that the most vital force in progressing civilization was Christianity and that our present educational system was apt to for- get the place of Christian principles in history and in the present day crisis, the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School instituted in February 1918 a general course of lectures on “Christian World Democracy.” These lectures were given by the Catholic priests and Protestant pastors of Hays and by the factulty member in charge of the course, P. Caspar Harvey. In January 1918 a meeting of representatives of every college and univer- sity in Kansas was held at Emporia to formulate plans for the study of the Christian ideals in Democracy. The conference adopted this official call : “We recognize as never before, because of the present world crisis, the im- perative demand for broader interpretation and application of Christianity as it applies not only to individual thought and conduct, but also to the social and international problems that face the world. We believe that students, because of their advantage of education, must lead, both in this larger interpretation and application of Christianity. We believe that if these students are to be prepared to do this unparalleled task it is absolutely imperative that they begin the work of interpretation and application during their college days. Because of this solemn conviction, this conference of all the colleges and the univer- sities of the state here firmly resolves to challenge too per cent of the students of Kansas to a consideration of courses in Christian world democracy and the application of Christianity to our community and national life.” Mr. Harvey was the Forty Hays representative at this meeting. Upon his return to Hays he went into a series of conferences with the Rev. Dr. Dominic of St. Joseph ' s Catholic Church and priest in charge of this parish, the pastors of the Protestant churches, and President Lewis of the Normal School. A group of lectures was worked up for the remainder of the semester. “It is not that the churches are not doing their work,” Mr. Harvey said in announcing the course to the student body, “but that college men and women do not fully understand the Christian principles at work in civilization apart from the church. We have heard President Wilson’s call to make the world safe for democracy. We in turn must do our bit to make democracy safe for the world and only an intelligent study of Christianity can do that.” One hundred and eighty enrolled for the course of lectures. Notes were taken and all notebooks turned in and graded by the instructor. There was no attempt made to give the course an attitude that might be termed “religious”. That belongs very properly to the church. Mr. Harvey Ninety-two 1919 acted as chairman and the priest or pastor who spoke, addressed the students and faculty present just as he would in a lecture course of a college or uni- versity. The Rev. C. F. Wiest of the Lutheran church lectured three times. His topics were, “Why Buddha, Zoroast, Mohammed, and Confucius failed in a progressing civilization”, “The family at the center of Civilization”, and “Christianity and Literature.” The Rev. Fr. Gilbert of the Catholic church lectured on “The Christian principles in Athletics”, “The Restoration and protection of weak as a Chris- tian principle”, and “The Christian regard for human life.” The Rev. A. S. Hale gave one address on “Christianity and Industrial Democracy.” The Rev. E, O. Rogers of the Baptist church talked on “Autocracy from a Christian Viewpoint”, and “The Sacrificial Principle as the Basis of Civiliza- tion.” The Rev. Gerrit Snyder of the Presbyterian church lectured on “the Phil- osophy of the superman from a Christian standpoint”, and “From Theocracy to Democracy.” President W. A. Lewis lectured on “Christianity as a Community Enter- prise.” Mr. P. Caspar Harvey lectured on “What Christian World Democracy Means”, “The Basic Philosophy of Christianity”, and “The Titanic Size of the Present Struggle and all its atrocities which are the greatest proof in the history of the world that there is a Perfect God,” Ninety- three THE REVEILLE The 1918 Reveille. 1 CTURES were taken for the Reveille and material collected. Owing to war conditions, it was decided to leave this for the Sophomore class of the first peace year to combine into a war number of the .Reveille. It was planned that this would be a complete history of the part the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School should play in the war at home and abroad. The T918 Sophomore class gave a play as a Reveille benefit thus helping somewhat to finance the 1919 Reveille. THE STAFF. Managing Editor Glenn Archer. Business Manager Harold Gilliland.

It has been the ambition of the staff to publish a book which would be truly representative of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School dur-. ing the war, to give honor to our men who have gone to war for us, to record oiv our own campus and to put into tangible form the history of events of school days for perusal in years to come.

S HE Student Army Training Corps was a war measure intended to take young men who possessed a considerable scholarship and to give them preliminary preparation before they entered the active army service. There were two purposes which the College was to serve — one to offer opportunities for the boys to become used to army discipline and army condi- tions : the other, to raise their morale by their keen understanding of the issues involved and to increase their mental equipment so that they would make the finest soldiers in the world. The scheme was a failure for two reasons. First and chiefly, because the war ceased and the purpose for which the S.A.T.C. had been established was no longer in existence. Second, that the machinery had not been in existence long enough to adjust itself to such a radical change in college life and college practice. Of the 660 colleges in America having S.A.T.C. without exception every one had identically the same experience — viz., that both the school and the boys were dissatisfied at the outcome of the project. The S.A.T.C. has now resolved itself into the R.O.T.C The R.O.T.C. is based upon college principles and college practices and not upon army practices as was the S.A.T.C. I think the R.O.T.C. will grow more popular every year until it reaches the place where every boy in school will be a member. Out of the mistakes of the S.A.T.C. will come a fine institution worthy of the traditions of American manhood. One Hundred 1919 VICTORY EDITION i m Officers of S. A. X. C.

One Naught Nine 1919 “All Right, Boys, Let’s Go” THIS DEMOCRATIC COMMAND FROM PRIVATE THAYER IN COMMAND OF THE SEC- OND ELLIS COUNTY DRAFT CONTINGENT STARTED OUR BOYS TO BERLIN Crowd of 1900 Give Big Send-off (By P. Caspar Harvey) Three men looked at their watches, whispered a word or so, and glanced at the mayor. ‘ ' Wait a minute, those two ladies havc’nt finished eating ' Mayor George Philip, Jr., said. Two mothers with shawls covering their heads were mfcking a uretense of eat- j mg. Their sons sat dfcposite. Every- one else in the dining room was wai ing. The two silent women who were offering their boys to the flag which was to make the world safe for de- mocracy soon laid down their forks. The mayor looked at County Clerk Brown, who in turn nodded across the room. Thayer, in command of the selected men, arose self-cons- ciously and stood awkwardly behind his chair. " All right boys, let ' s go,” he said ! clearly. A few scattering hand claps greeted the significant, if uiy military command. In stern reality it represented democracy ut war. The dinner which Hays ave the new sol- diers of Ellis County, Thursday, was over and the march to the railroad station begun. On the day before, Wednesday, the patriotic citizens of Victoria and vicinity in twenty-six automobiles had accompanied to Hays the- boys of that community who had been called to the colors of America to see them on the first lap of their journey to France. When one Vic- toria citizen was asked ' about it, he threw out his chest and held his head erect, before he answered. " To bring our boys along of course.” He said it proudly despite the quaver in his voice. To be given such a send-off will make every Victoria boy a bet- ter soldier of Uncle Sam. For three hours before eleven o ' clock there was a peculiar expect- ant air noticeable down town. A group of women talked among them- selves in front of a dry goods store; a bunch of young men hung around the grocery store on a comer. When Dr. Middlekauf drove his Ford road- ster north on Chestnut with his old- est son in the uniform of the medi- cal corps all eyes followed him up the street. Here and- there a young mart with a white badge was the center of an earnest group of friends. The Hays Chapter of the Red Cross gave each soldier a pocket knife. Each of the boys was given cigars, and chewing gum for the trip to Camp Funston. The mothers, wives and sweethearts were each pres- }_ Thayer brought his men from the last meal ' in Hays until they return to a similar banquet in celebration of peace at exactly 11:04 a. m. : Parade Marshall Charley King sent the Hays College boy» with their big flag to the front of the parade. The Hays and Normal bands came next. whose work as members of the lo- cal draft board had met with such approval. Although the people were not talkative, Alex Weltz, George Brown, and Dr. Middlekauff were even less communicative. The fact that they were not conspicuous made their position all the more signifi- cant. After the draft board came Fred J, Leiker bearing the flag of the sol- diers followed by the thirty-six in whose honor thj parade was. held. Then came the school children, the Fort Hays Normal students and fac- ulty and the town people and the folks from all the smaller towns of Ellis County. Al! the business houses had been closed. While the band played and the departing boys held an informal reception on North Main, George Brown went to his vault to ' get the transportation for the thirty-six. The only organized yell was that of the boys of Hays College. During the wait for the train — and all over the country similar crowds were waiting for similar trains — a little girl some way managed to el- bow herself to Sheriff Weltz. Pulling his coat she asked if a certain name was on the list today. Weltz shook his head. As the girl slipped back into the crowd her companion asked her if it would be another day and the girl said proudly, " Yes.” A strangely silent crowd with bared heads listened to the strains of the Star Spangled Banner as the thir- ty-six lined up ready to board the train. The train came and left. On- ly sporadic cheers bade the boys God- speed ar.d goodbye. The 1900 peo- ple began to melt away. Another little girl was overheard to say in the dispersing of the crowd, " The train was the saddest thing about it all.” Hays will never be the same again. There is a new spirit here now. The reality of the struggle has been brought home. The kisses of moth- ers and sweethearts and sisters, the hand clasps of fathers and brothers and friends took up the time the train stopped. Then with the sight of the last two boys, Cleve Gardels and Jesse Humphrey, gone, that eye that was not moist was hard to find. The thought of everyone centered on the one other thing that will bring Hays closer together and which no one mentioned aloud. he learned that some farmer® in an adjoining county had telegraphed Washington to protest that the price of wheat was made too low. The price of blood meant something to this grizzled patriot. Within half arf-hour after the train Then followed the three quiet men {faded from sight down the track the streets were almost deserted. Hays was at its noon meal. How many of those meals were either meatless or wheatless no one knows. But if many were not, and if many arc not in the days to come, the number of fViWv.aiv ' fn Will be lfiRS those thirty -six ' to return will be less than it should be. Hays must do its own part to bring as many of them back as possible. For those thirty- six boys the government must send to France ISO tons of stuff. How much of the foodstuffs for that 180 tons will be raised in Ellis County? How much will be saved in Ellis County? It matters not that the family has the money to buy wheat and meat, it ' s the not eating them that counts toward savings the liver of Ellis County boys. Hays and Ellis county bids fare- well and Godspeed to the thirty-six and prays for their safe return and an early, but safe, peace. The thirty- six leaving Thursday morning were: 437 — Emil Willis Utecht 43 — Rversou Dudley Gates 420 — Frank SSehoenberger 10 — Jesse Martin Humphries 487 — Caspar Dome 652 — Anastas Nicholas Werth 10 20 — Fred John Leiker, FUgbearer 786 — Henry Albert Hauschild 972 — Bonaventure J.

The object of the R.O.T.C. is to give the students attending school (by means of a standai ' dized system of instruction) a thorough physical training, inculcate in them a respect for all lawful authority and teach the fundamentals of military training and leadership, so that when they graduate from our schools they will be better qualified to solve the problems of civil life and bet- ter prepared to perform intelligently their duties as leaders of men, in case of future military necessity. 3. Some of the advantages are : Uniforms to value of approximately $42.00 (Government price) will be furnished each student annually by the Govern- ment. A further issue of uniforms amounting to $15 will be made to those students who volunteer to attend a summer camp. Each man will receive the following articles; woolen uniform, woolen shirt, short overcoat, shoes, leg- gins, hat, hat cord, waist belt, chevrons, collar ornaments. Those attending camps will be issued each year, additionally, two breeches (khaki cotton) one pair of shoes, shirt, leggins, hat and hat cord. The student will also be given the privilege of purchasing additional articles of uniform from the Quarter- master at Government price. 4. Students who have successfully completed the first two years, or basic part of the training in the senior division and who agree to take an advanced course of five hours per week and agree to attend a six weeks camp in the sum- mer during the last two years of college, will be paid commutation of subsist- ence by the Government amounting to $12 per month (cash) at the present rate. After graduation such students may obtain a commission as a reserve officer. 5. New and complete equipment and late model arms are available. The infantry pack includes shelter tent half, tent pins, etc. A liberal supply of ammunition for out door and indoor target practice is authorized. Requisi- tions should be submitted to “The Supply Officer, Committee on Education and Special Training, Mills Bldg., Washington, D. C This officer will promptly order fulfillment of original requisitions. Bonds may be temporarily waived in order to expedite organization. 6. Units of Infantry, Cavalry, Field Artillery, Coast Artillery, Signal Corps, Engineer Corps, Air Service and other branches of the service are of- fered. The facilities at an institution and the wishes of the institution author- ities will determine the type of unit to ' be established at a school. Training schedules for field artillery, engineer corps and signal corps have been received and at the colleges to which submitted they were cordially considered. All such programs of training are drawn up to conform to the standard courses One Nineteen 1919 THE REVEILLE of technical training in colleges. Modification will be made to fit local condi- tions where possible. Technical Equipment and material of considerable value will be furnished to the institutions where these special units are established. ii. It is only recently that the privilege of maintaining Junior Units of the R.O.T.C. has been extended to High Schools. This was probably due to the lack of equipment in the past. There is now an ample supply of equipment. Junior Units are authorized for High Schools and the military training is pre- paratory for more advanced training in colleges. Credit will be given for work done in the Junior Division toward advanced military standing so that a member of the Junior Division who has done substantially the same work as that given for the first two years of the Senior Division may enter the ad- vanced course of the Senior Division and become entitled to commutation of subsistence the First Year lie enters college. t 2 . The following summary of the financial advantages of the R.O.T.C. should be of special interest to the student who “works his way.” Senior Division: Each man will receive annually, uniforms to the value (actual cost value) to the amount of $41.83. Additional to those attending summer camps, $14.67. (See paragraphs 5 for list of articles.) Each man will receive in four years, property (uniforms valued at 4 x $14.67 $167.32 Each man will receive in three summers property (uniforms valued at 3 x $14.67 44.01 Each man recommended will receive commutation of subsistence two years, or 590 days at 40c per day 236.00 Each man may receive commutation of subsistence in kind (not paid in cash) three summers, 135 days at 40c per day 54-00 Besides the items mentioned above, equipment issued for each student amounts to at least $50.00. The privilege of buying extra uniform at the above mentioned prices from the Quartermaster Department which will have an additional saving value to those who take advantage of it. The privilege of special technical training in various fields without any tui- tion charges. An opportunity to obtain a commission as second lieutenant of the Regular Army for a period not exceeding six months, with allowances for that grade, and with pay at the rate of $ coo. 00 per month. The members of the Junior Division are on the same basis in respect to the above items as the Senior Division, except that no commutation of subsistence, other than at summer camps, will be granted.

Dougherty enlisted as a private in aviation at the beginning of the war. He won his commission as a first lieutenant and was one of the three or four American aviators permitted to fly home on a vacation at Christinas time. For two years when on the Tiger football team as its star tackle, he was mentioned for an all-state tackle but an injury late in the season of 1916 prevented his being awarded that honor. In the army Dougherty first won the heavy weight boxing championship of Fort Heaven worth. After going to Texas he played football continually on the Camp ' s first team and was the champion 100 yard dash man of their track team. PAUL GROSS. “Busch,” who could do everything in the athletic line and who never failed to do his bit, went to help Uncle Sam. He was the fastest man in his company, forward in basketball on his battery team which only lost by one point to the team which went to Paris to play for the championship. BEN WILLIAMS. Williams, who. was one of the best fighters on our team, always did his part. He was mentioned several times to be a candidate in the all-state selection. When in the army he played center on the Arkansas team and helped to win a navy championship for the U.S.S. Arkansas. BEN WESTBROOK. Ben played half-back on the football team in 1917, and was the only man to score in the Bethany game by a drop kick, helped to win the championship for us. Whenever they wanted to make their downs they always called on Ben. In the following spring he felt he was called to a bigger service by Uncle Sam. When he got to the coast, he found his athletic record was already there. His company at once made him captain of his team and by his drop kicks and line plunges was able to help win for them the Pacific Coast Championship. LIEUT. GUY O. ORDWAY. Guy, who starred in line plunges and on defensive work, tried his luck with Uncle Sam. He was at once made captain of his company ' s football team. He enlisted and later won a commission. ARTHUR HEMPHILL. Hemphill played end on the Tigers football team and was always able to get “there.” Fie played end on the Fort Baker team of which Ben Westbrook was captain, and helped them win the Pacific Coast Championship.

(Editor ' s note: The Reveille prints herewith the opening paragraphs of a short article written for the Foreign Press Bureau of the Committee on Public Information. It was translated in the foreign language and published in Russia, Europe and South America. The request came from Paul Kennaday of the Foreign Press Bureau to P. Caspar I-larvey who prepared the article. This was a part of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School ' s contribution to help win the war by showing the people abroad how some of the principles of democracy worked at home.) AYS, Kansas, U.S.A. — When President Wilson asked the colleges and universities of the United States to support the war program there was a sta te school out in the famous “short grass” country where it was not necessary to stop to install any new ideas, methods, or machinery. The students of the Fort Hays Kansas Normal School who grew up on the Great American Plains where roamed the last Indians and wallowed the last buffaloes engaged in the fourfold activity of (i) acquiring their college education, (2) producing their own products, (3) using them for food, and (4) thereby being economically independent of their parents by conserving them. The boys and girls of Western Kansas are only one generation from the pioneers who overcame grasshoppers, droughts, and the loneliness of prairie homes. Their longing for an education was coupled with a desire to get it without help from home. Farming their way through college established the project system, as it is called. It offers managerial experience, develops initia- tive, and gives economic independence along with their higher education. To every boy and girl of Western Kansas the school says: “Have enough money to get on the campus. If you will farm, garden, milk cows, churn but- ter, raise chickens, slop pigs, peel potatoes, or keep bees, you can get your col- lege education.” Boys and girls alike — rich and poor — are project workers. When the draft took the boys there was no need for an appeal to the girls to take the places. There is no interference with the traditional subjects of a college curriculum. This is not a technical school nor an industrial center. The head of the school does not believe in cultnre for its own sake because he says it teaches away from democratic ideals The Department of Literature and Music are the two most patronized ones of the School. The unique thing is the combination of agriculture, literature, and music . It robs the farm life of the Great Plains of drudgery ; it helps the war program for more food production ; and it also keeps the youth in college without interruption. The outstanding feature of this combination is the time One Twenty-three 1919 a student is securing his culture is not a period of isolation from the activities of the world. The projects must compete on the open market. Strong pro- jects do not bolster up weak ones. For example the dining hall buys only cer- tain cuts of pork and buys them on the open market. The boys in the pig pro- ject sell their hogs on the open market. The school teaches that it would be suicide to have cooperation without economic independence. If their efforts, skill, and products cannot compete successfully failure results. The workers have expert advice and classroom instruction to help them, but there is no paternalism.

Not only did the Tigers win the Kansas Conference Championship but they won it with an ever-victorious team. Six conference games were played and only in the first game were the Tigers scored on. In the selection of the all-Kansas team places were awarded on that mythical eleven to Captain Ralph Archer as the all-Kansas center and to Rex Welty as an all-Kansas half-back. To Welty was also awarded the honor of being chosen as one of the three all-Kansas stars in which honor F.H.N. shared with the Kmporia Normal and Southwestern. The Emporia eleven was the runner up for the state championship and stood second in the list of percentages. To Coach “Bunt” Speer must be given a major part of the credit for the successful gridiron season. SEASON’S SCORES. Southwestern 20. F. Baker 0, F. St. Mary’s 0, F. Haskell Reserves... 7. F.

S a m ember of the student body of the Fort Flays Kansas Normal School Ralph Archer won more honors than any boy in the history of the school. Te enumerate Ralph ' s major honors is to list the lead- student ' s position in the School ' s major activities. Ralph Archer was the Captain of the Kansas Conference Championship football team 1917; chosen all-state center 19 17; managing editor The Leader 1914-15 and 1917; winner of the W. A.

Archer enlisted as a cadet in Aviation in January 1918. He won his commission in an incredibly short time. He was a member of the aviation foot- ball team which boasted of stars from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Chicago, Leland Stanford, Ne- braska, Cornell and Vanderbilt. One Twenty-seven 1919 Rex Velty. Hill City. E ! X WELTY was a natural athlete endowed with a wonderful physique coupled wth an exceptionally quick-thinking mind. No athlete in the history of F.H.N. ever exhibited such a wide range of physical prowess. In the year 1917 at Baker University he jumped into the air from the midst of four Baker men and without the aid of a single Normal player scooped a brilliant forward pass for the touchdown that won the game. Ele often took the ball and ran through the entire opposing team for gains from forty to seventy yards. In basketball his accuracy, speed, quick passing, quick-thinking, and jump- ing made him captain of the all-Kansas second team while still a freshman. Welty received more athletic honors off the F.H.N. campus than any athlete in the history of the School. He was chosen as an all-state half in 1917 and given the honor of being one of the three all-Kansas stars for that season.

My children are the sons and daughters of the pioneers who found it impossible to live on the Great Plains, but yet did it. I have no Yesterday. My face is turned toward the virgin purity of To- morrow. My talents are my resourcefulness. My genius is not in my special gifts, but in incarnate purpose. I think less of my personal comfort and more of my responsibilities. I am doing the thing in hand. I make mistakes but my failures are only apparent because of the eloquent testimony of my initiative. I believe that teaching is the highest calling, the most self-respecting busi- ness. I believe it is more honorable to teach school than to make money, to occupy high office, or to command an army. I am the Alma Mater of them who carry into life the realization that from toil with their hands came the noblest part of their character. My achievements take form out of the magic void of just being at it every day. My votaries learn how by trying to do the job with inexhaustible capacity for going on. My devotees laugh often and love much. My sororities are bevies of girls who wash dishes together. My fraternities are squads of overalled boys who have a dairy barn for a chapter house. My faculty looks not into the past for information to be memorized, but makes use of the present as an inspiration to future endeavor. And my president lias no office hours. My religion is creedless, but the Golden Rule is my catechism. My sons are privileged to spend their blood, and my daughters to dedicate their lives for the principles of right that are more precious than peace. God helping me I can do no more.

Mm By Genevieve Jewell. |USK is falling ' ; a restful calm, an air of almost holy peacefulness rests upon the beautiful roll- ing prairies — prairies that are one stretch of glorious color — deepest greens of velvety hue blending into softer greens, richest tans, shimmering yel- lows and delicate greys shading, fading, into lighter touches — all merging into one grand harmony — inde- scribable. And, I wonder, when the Creator views us striving humans here below, if we blend together, merging one with the other, until we make just such a harmonizing scene, if vve, perhaps, (together) make a peaceful restful bit of color to the Master ' s eye? Perhaps to examine more closely, this bit ' of yellow is but a homely weed, this green a thorn, that brown an ugly poisonous plant, yet each is a needed part of that beautiful landscape. So some lives may seem ugly, disproportioned — yet perhaps they be not looked upon with disfavor by the Creator, for viewed with the rest, they are a part of one vast harmon- izing picture, which is not unpleasant to His sight.

E was in deep thought for he had just twenty minutes in which to write an original story. “The writing of the story would not be so bad " ' he thought, “if I could only think of something to write about.” Five of the twenty minutes were spent in wondering what would happen if he failed to write the story, but he came to the conclusion that he had better write something. “I know what I will do,” he said. “I will use ‘The Sunset ' for my subject.” The next ten minutes were spent in writing the story, which was plenty of time as he discovered that finding the subject was not the most difficult part of the task. He could now think of anything else but the setting of the sun. The story completed — he counted the words, twenty-six in number, and of the twenty-six thirteen were descriptive adjectives. “That will never do,” he decided. “I would rather run the chance of not having the story.” He looked at his watch, the twenty minutes were up and the story-writing for that day was at an end. " C ommonplaces ip; m By Agnes Arrington. OUR children, bright of eye, quiet, baybyish, shabby but immaculately clean and having that indefinable something of children who do not know worldly ways, sat in a railroad train. They were so appealingly young. Furthermore, they were travel- ing quite alone. From these facts their neighbors grew curious concerning them and inquired their destination. “Boise City, Idaho,” the oldest of the quartet replied. A chorus of wonder went up from the people about them. “Where are you from?” asked some one else. Springfield, Missouri, it was learned was their home. Surrounded by interested and sympathetic people, their story was told. A little family had lived in the Ozarks, father, baby, mother and the four on the train. In a soft, typically south Missouri voice, with the idioms peculiar to that section the girl told of the ravages of “flu,” how mother first and then baby brother had died.

One Seventy-one 1919 THE REVEILLE “Papa thought he might do better in Idaho ' she continued, “so he went out there and now we children are going, too. " It was all such a perfectly natural course of events as she told it To her, it was the most simple thing in the world that the remnant of the little family should find a new land the better and set out to it as pioneers of old. With an Ozark ferocity of family loyalty, the girl refuted the idea of fath- er’s lack of wisdom in expecting a child of thirteen to safely bring the little brood to him over the many miles they must travel. With the same stubborn pride she refused so much as an orange for the littlest one though the lack of even necessities was so pitifully apparent. Like a young general she marshalled her small army cluring the long weary- ing day. When night fell as best she could, she fixed them all for sleep. Then, too weary to longer continue her watch, she also slept. It was only ' one of the commonplace things of life after all. W astmg Time. By Myrtle Divine. JPLH PI AT is wasting time? A popular way of defining it is: “That failing which everyone imagines his neighbor has ’ an evil which is preached about from the time you are old enough to understand until you are too old to care. It ' s ; Johnnie put up those marbles and bring in the wood ’ or “Mary lay those dolls away and practice your music lesson.’ ' To some degree this “doll and marble failing " seems to follow us clear thru life. But isn ' t it true that one individual could do things and not waste time, while another would be criticised for doing the same because it would be wast- ing time ? Then how are we to know ' whether going to afternoon tea parties, when we might be sewing, or reading, or answering those letters, is wasting time? The old saying: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, " is true enough — but just how far will that carry us, when it applies so differently to the numerous classes of people? Which is the upper-most question in the average person’s mind : Am I wast- ing my time? Am I wasting my neighbor’s time? Or is my neighbor wast- ing his time?

Bath Time on the Farm. By Margaret Chittenden. FTER the chores are done mother bustles about getting out clean clothes, and night gowns, stirring up the fire and making everything ready for the bath. While father with his feet cocked up on the stove tries to read “The Farmers Mail and Breeze.” In the afternoon a wash tub of water has been put on the stove to heat and also an extra kettleful. The children are playing horse and quarreling a little over who is to be the horse and who the driver. When everything is in readiness father lifts the tub onto the newspapers spread on the door near the stove. Mother undresses both children and lets them test the water by “dibbling” their toes in it while she adds hot or cold water till it is of the right temperature. Both children are plopped in at once. Mother kneels on a towel near the tub and the younger one undergoes a good scrubbing while the other one soaks and demands that mother make a snowman of his brother by lathering his head. Then mother spreads a towel down in front of the oven door and stands the younger on it while she rubs him vigorously with a turkish towel. Then she turns him over to father to brush his hair and put on his night clothes. More hot water is added and the next one goes through the same process. It is serious business for all and there is not much fun till father carries out the tub of water and mother brings out a jug of milk and some cookies. This is the signal to begin the Saturday night frolic and everybody’s spirits rise. Father has to act as a bear or a bucking broncho as the case may demand, much to the pretended disgust of mother who begs them to behave, and mind the lamp and finally puts an end to all frolicking by carrying the youngest off to bed.

WEEKS, Superintendent One Seventy-five 1919 H THE REVEILLE : The Silent Member of the J ournalism Class. By Margaret Chittenden. M HE buffalo winked. I nodded. I had often wondered just what he thought of our work in journalism. He looked as if he understood it all and he always seemed interested but this was the first time 1 had ever seen him- express himself. And he approved. I thought perhaps he would think our original stuff foolish and not worth while. So for several weeks I had watched him closely and when his eyes twinkled at one of the funny stories I knew his judgment was favorable. When one of the stories of Western Kansas was read I observed him close- ly and he seemed more interested than- ever. One his eyes even seemed to get dreamy and sad as if he were longing to again roam on the broad plains and stampede with a herd of buffalo when a prairie fire was raging. The buffalo is the silent member of the journalism class and I imagine could give good advice in much of the writing of life in Western Kansas. Once I thought he almost sneered at something I had written, at least he looked very disgusted. Then did I realize what an insignificant thing I had handed into class. One eye seems to be directed on the instructor all the time and with the other he watches the class. Maybe in some of the members he sees the grand- fathers who hunted him or the fathers who have corailed him and his kindred, in a few small pastures. But the expression in his eyes is not one of revenge for there is an unusual kindness there. Perhaps some of the most exciting stories sound dull to him when compared with some of his stampedes or experiences when traveling with ten thousand other bison to a nice watering place or alkaline lick. But he does not seem weary and he listens to them all with great patience and as yet has never even yawned. Are College Seniors “Kids " ? By Victoria Unruh. VERYONE was talking and laughing — having the quite proper good time before the college professor came to conduct the French class. Someone heard a footstep on the cement hall floor outside the open classroom door. Instantly silence predominated. Every student seized one long look at the fateful French conjugations — for Mr. Soderlund had threateningly promised, “if every one of you don ' t know the conjugations One Seventy-six 1919 i It VICTORY EDITION We’ve Got It, We’ll Get It, or j j It Isn’t to Be Had Pure Pood Products We Desire Your Trade and Will Try and Serve You Well T.

" However, that footstep belonged to a French student, a college senior, who, as he sauntered in, saluted the others with “Bonjour, Messieurs et mesdam- oiselle. " We all breathed naturally again and someone said, “Ferme la porte, " the senior closed the classroom door as bidden and joined in the momentary respite of a good time until the Grand Seigneur arrived to rule. A door was heard to unlock, to open, to close, then authoritative footsteps approached. The classroom door opened. It was he, Mr. Soderlund, with his chilling “good morning. " He strode over to his desk and began calling the roll. All went well until he came to the names of yesterday ' s absentees. “Why weren ' t you here yesterday Simpson " ? he shouted, “I was in the manual training room and the whistle didn ' t blow, " he meekly answered. “Miss Helm what de- tained you from class yesterday " ? thundered the exacting pedagogue again. “I was practicing for the Reveille benefit. " “Miss Palmer, and you " ? he rum- bled. “I practised the accompaniment for the Trombone solo for I had to take the place of Miss Harder who was ill, " Miss Palmer frankly answered. “Well now, let me tell you youngsters something — you can ' t miss French because of an entertainment. If you have to miss your French we will have to stop the entertainments, that ' s all. I didn ' t miss any classes and I had lots more to do than you. " Mr. Soderlund was visibly saturated with displeasure. He cleared his throat, he coughed, he readjusted his glasses, he moved his chair noisily away from the desk, and then his subcutaneous wrath burst into vehement volcanic sarcasm and threatenings. “In the next faculty meeting I shall make a mo- tion that each French student be provided with a nurse to see that he gets his lesson, attends class and hears the whistle. I am sure the motion will be car- ried unanimously. You kids (shaking his scepter-like index finger at us) must learn to think for yourselves. When you go out to teach school you will have to doi t, and think for others as well. Remember, French is not so unimport- ant that you can slight it. You must get it, everyone, or I’ll flunk you flat. " The class would probably have been frightened into studying had Mr. Sod- erlund not smiled just then.

By Harold Pyles. B HE thing ' s I want to talk to you about this morning will not be very pleasant, ’ he said. Everyone knew it for it was “Blue Monday " and the students know just about what to expect when President Lewis talks at Assembly on that day. Maybe a student had been seen on the streets a little after ten o’clock, or possibly someone might have walked on the grass. Then, too, someone might have skipped Assembly. It doesn’t make much difference just what the of- fense might be, it prompts the same talk. In fact students have heard this “Blue Monday” talk so many times they could almost deliver it word for word, Possibly ninety per cent of the students spend the time in dreaming of what happened the day before, or hoping President Lewis will not find too much to say so that they may get to dinner. Then when he says, “I hope I will not have to speak to you about this matter again, " everyone comes to life for now he has almost gone his limit and Assembly for that day will soon be over. One Eighty- eight 1919 THE REVEILLE Reveille Staff Insurance Policy. RIENDS, the editors in their endeavor to keep you from being dis- appointed have used the only sure method. This method is as cer- tain as a dull Assembly program and flunking in French. Gentle reader, you have already scanned the pages of pictures and persned the pages of type. You wei ' e not aware of that subtle, psychological process in your own mind and for which the editors played so keenly, If you had been aware of our purpose before you came to this you would not ap- preciate the full significance of the formula which we used. In pursuing our formula we had the good of the School in mind. Perhops there is some staff selfishness in desiring that very few be disappointed in the book. The formula to insure the editors against disappointment is this: make everything appear to mean more than it says. “The BELIEVE in the United States of America as a government, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the con- sent of the governed ; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union; one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. ‘T, therefore, believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.” (Written by William Tyler Page of Maryland for the “National Citizen’s Creed Contest.” Repeated in general assembly many times during the war.)
