One who has gone To worship its beauty In the daivn, One who has slept On its breast at night, One who has measured His strength to its height. 07 e who has followed Its longest trail And laughed in the face Of its fiercest gale; One who has scaled its peaks And has trod Its cloud swept summits Alone with Qod. " ssaTTi FOREWORD It is fitting that the theme of this book be hilltops. Ours is a school on a hill and is dedicated to the training of those most earnest of hill climbers, the teachers. Though it ' e ourselves may not behold the top. the vision in our hearts is so clear that ive may help younger feet to avoid our stumbling places and ivith ivords of encouragement point oui the pathway to the top. In appreciation ol the unselfi.%h service to mankind rendered by teachers ive have knoivn and in recognition of the high ideals of future teachers, ive chose as the theme of our book that symbol of progress which has ever inspired man — a hilltop.

I " or many of you your school-student days will he permanentlv over and _ ou will be looking forward to school-teacher days. May your anticipation be rewarded and mav ne.xt September find vou a teacher in some school in which you will achieve both hajipiness and success. If it were in my power to do so I would see that this wish in your behalf were fulfilled. It is not. Its fulfillment lies jirimarily in the hands of the employing superintendent but after that, it is in your hands. If, perchance, the superintendent should not give you an opjxirtunity to demon- strate your willingness and your fitness to succeed, there are then two courses open to you. First, to wait and loaf till a chance comes. This course is deadening and probablv hopeless. The second open way is to make the intervening time count toward better preparation for future study or liy a])prentice teaching in some excellent system, even without pay. Whatever happens do not let yourselves be classified in that unfortunate group of drifters which Secretarv W ' illiur speaks of as " all dressed up educationally and no place to go. " W ' .M.TER E.

I ' d clinihed them all and staj-ed Long hours ' neath the summer sun Or in the evening shade. 1 was content with my small lot. The stars were far awa}-. Life was so easy, eflfortless. The future bright and gay. But suddenly I felt unrest, A deep, insistent cry To leave the low hills I had known. To reach up to the sky. To climb the high hills, higher yet, To stretch my arms afar. To rock the cradle of a moon. And touch the farthest star. The years have passed, the way is steep, I have not scaled the heights. Hut a Power great beyond my ken I las led my steps aright. Mv burden ' s growing lighter. For with each ])assing day I learn another lesson To help me on my way. And still my steps lead upward. Aly face is toward the sky. Still is my desire I ' ligh as the hills are high. Lll reach the hilltop, higher yet. And stretch my arms afar; I ' ll rock the cradle of a moon. And touch the farthest star ! Arlciic rr.

During our first year we were placed in a new environment, away from ]irevious influences and were made more independent. Many lasting friendships were formed and we shaped the foot of our hill with preliminary knowledge through observation and study. The second year developed our knowledge and gave us jiractical association with our work through |)ractice teaching. We are now completing our three years ' training in Gorham Normal School and we have a clearer view of that hilltop. Our work was based on a very simple philosophy of government — the use of our jiersona! character and initiative as the ]iriine re(|uisites in educational and social life. W ' itli the background we have gained through the excellent coojieration of the faculty, we face our hilltop with foresight and great joy because it means financial independence and a resjiected yiVdCf in the ccminuinity with an onjiortunity to benefit through educating children.

And it ' s ringing with singing As tribute of praise we ' re bringing ' Xeath the pines and the maples Tow ' ring green on Normal Hill. And it ' s ringing with singing As triljute of praise we ' re bringing ' Xeath the pines and the maples Tow ' ring green on Normal Hill. Now the blue of June ' s above us And the green of June ' s beneath, And o ' er all the dear old campus June, her fragrant air doth breathe. And we ' ll picture forever This last joyous day together ' Neath the pines and the maples Tow ' ring green on Normal Hill.

Because I would be wise and wisdom find From millions gone liefore whose torch I pass, Still burning bright to light the paths that wind So steep and rugged, for each lad and lass Slow-climbing to the unrevealed above, I teach. Because in passing on the living flame That ever brighter burns the ages through, I have done service that is worth the name Can I but say, " The flame of knowledge grew A little brighter in the hands I taught, " I teach. Because I know that when life ' s end I reach And thence pass through the gate so wide and deep To what I do not know, save what men TEACH, That the remembrance of me men will keep Is what I ' ve done : and what I have is naught.

They created in their minds an ideal to strive for — that of being worthy of reaching the Hilltops offered in their normal school training. Then they worked for this aim, this ideal, with all their energy and enthusiasm. All of us may feel that our experiences during our two years spent on Normal Hill will act as a guide to greater attainments.

Those two years have been glorious ones, spent in happiness in our work with the faculty and the students. We look forward to another pleasant year, during which we shall continue to climb that greatest of all hills, the hill of understanding and knowledge. G. N. S. has done far more for us than to offer us knnwli-dge: it has opened whole new fields and widi-r capacities for happiness and efficiency.

There was the faculty of eight, who strove to make life real and earnest. Tw(i of these stand niit whimi we were fortunate in ha ing as teachers and whom we were hajipy to call friends. A whole generation that attended the school knew them both and loved them. That generation went out into life stronger for ha ing met them. It carried into the world their isions and aspirations for _ (iuth. It is not easy to ]jut into words what ' iola M. White and William J. Corthell meant to many of us. Our only hope is that we may be able to help others to realize something of the inspiration they g a e during those school years and something of the lasting results l)(_)th to the students and to the school. The}- tried to give us some of the enthusiasm for learning and teaching which they j)ossessed. They disliked btufling. the_ ' " detested vulgarity. " They loved truth and were not afraid of work. Pett - thinking was not theirs. Humor and humanity they both had.

S. iiu ask tur events frt)ni my G. X. S. clax ' s Tliat outstand for me over the rest; I think it was not the spectacular plays That have helped me to stand the test. 1 think it ' s the silent, everyday force That speaks loudest to me through the vears ; The things that, " petty " and " wrong " at the time. Have helped me to smile at my fears. ' e had lessons to learn, and more studies than time. ( )r so we thought and complained. But the faculty knew our weakness an l kind. And our lessons were learned just the same. Restriction and discipline are good for us all. Though often with our pleasures they mix; Still, I oft hear a voice quoting from Paul : " It is useless to kick against the pricks. " When assignments were made. Dr. Russell has said, " It is your privilege to do " thus and so ; Privilege, indeed ! Youth tossed up her head. Ah, yes, privilege, did she Init know ! So ' tis making the best of what the day brings. Smiling bravely through discipline tests; ' Tis the privilege of sharing all we have gained That ' s the influence of old G. X. S. Grace Sliihbs Hall. ' uS. page si.rty-sevcn Wsainr] 1 shall strive to write something- of what " Hilltop " has meant tu me. Ijoth as a student and as an alumnje member. The life at Gorham is fully as important as the classes, and it will be remembered long after lessons have been forgotten. The friendships and helpfulness, the learning how to live with one ' s neighbors, these are the funda- mental things. When I entered Gorham, I was self-conscious and lonel}- in a crowd. I knew the fault was mine, but I had found no way to remedy it. My feeling of inferiority and strangeness left me at once and I ' ve never found it again. It is selfishness and a waste of time and nerve energy, anyway. Find something useful to do, something you can do well ; exert every power upon it, and that ' s your salvation. I enjoyed and appreciated my education there because I had taught before and had a little of the viewpoint of a teacher. G. N. S. should be especially proud to have such a fine faculty. I found every one of my teachers an inspira- tion to me : Mr. Russell, with his wisdom and dignity and friendly sportsman- ship; Miss Stone ' s intellectual leadership; Miss Keene, with her love of Nature and precision in organizing subject matter; the poetry in the scientific attitude of Mr. Woodward; Miss Hasting ' s forcefulness and helpfulness; Mr. Wieden, who sets one thinking; the great help Miss Rhynsburger and Miss Andrews gave me in music. They are both musicians and splendid friends. Miss Halliday ' s Christian influence has been deeply felt throughout the school, and she is the mainstay of the yearbook staflf. How fair and wise is our Dean, Miss Jordan, no one can appreciate unless she stops to consider that this is the hardest task of all. No one is more suitable than she. and she needs the encouragement and cooperation of every student. Other members of my class will recognize some of the events which stand out in my mind looking back over the two fullest years of my life : The recep- tion when we were juniors, and our changed viewpoint at the junior reception, when we came back as seniors; the Annie Louise Gary Club, where I met many of the townspeople; singing Christmas music in the Chapel; practicing long and hard all winter for " Briar Rose " and its triumphant performance; and again last year for " Once in a Blue Moon. " One Easter Sunday a crowd of us got up at daylight and hiked out to Fort Hill for a Sunrise Service. All have memories of the dances we had in Center; the Y. W. C. A. meetings; the Cabaret and the Fair at the Gym ; the Hallowe ' en parties and the memorable Ghost Valk through Corthell ; innumerable basketball games, some trium- phant, some disa])]jointing, but all results met in a sjjorting way; Commence- ment, time of triumph and sadness, joy and tears ; then a flat, inevitalile feeling when it was over. Time passes so quickly. Anotlur year is gone. I am teaching at Orrington in a rural school of eight grades; eighteen of my twenty-five inqjils are boys. M - luinu- is near enough so that I walk to school. 1 want to extend my love and best wishes for true success and hap])iness to everyone. Marjoric Kendall, ' ., ' . ta )e sixly-cifiht l7B02ir5 :i; " Hilltops " — a more ai)i)ru])riate theme could not have been chosen for the Green and White! What Gorham graduate would not be reminded of that hilltop in Gorham on which stands dear old G. N. S.. the scene of so many pleasant days. On a certain September morning in 1922, I first became acquainted with G. N. S. Arriving on the train, I soon found myself amid the throng of happy, laughing girls, the seniors naturally being the happiest. The homesick juniors were soon made welcome, and tears were changed to laughter. ' ell do I rememl er the first Student Council meeting in the " Center, " at which the seniors presided in the absence of Miss Keene. Such a deep impres- sion they made that not once did my roommate and I dare to speak above a whisper for nearly the whole evening. A finer corps of teachers could not be found, each one there for service and always ready to lend a helping hand. It is indeed a pleasure to meet them again vhene ' er at G. X. S., and how proud we are of our own Dr. Russell. I am glad to belong to G. N. S. ! Many changes have taken place in these few short years since 1923, and we know they are for the advancement of Education. The new buildings are an asset to G. N. S. Space would not permit me to mention half the good times had at Normal School. They are among my treasured memories, and surely every girl and boy who has attended Gorham Normal has many, too. Of the friendships made in Gorham Normal School, many are lasting " , and those I cherish. Even now as I write, " Aly heart goes back To wander there Ainong the dreains Of days that were. " Wcalthca A. Richardson, ' 2 . When the summer stars are shining On the school we love so well, June will akvays find us pining For the spires of dear Corthell. Oh. the happy hours we pondered As we planned our future way ! On the Campus green we wandered, Viewing Nature day bv- day. Through the years we travel, singing Of lands in which we roam ; The Green and White is flinging Colors to call us home. Genna Merrificld, ' jl. page sixly-iiine iii iMiBE« ' 5fl ' - " « 17saa ' " Hilltops " — what a heautifully exprt-ssive tht-iiie for a yearhnok — a theme which can inspire, gnidi-. and ])n)vifle a measure (jf attainment to the readers of the issue. As I have been thinking of it, somehow all of life seems to me a matter of hilltops — hilltops of our finest ideals; hilltojis of our most secret amliitions; hilltops of our outward successes. A hilltop, should it be the top of the tiniest hilluck or the peak of the tallest mountain, is a challenge to those who stand at the bottom and gaze upward. It is a dare to attempt its height. It is this challenge — this unspoken dare — that proves an inspiration that beckons us on to the finer, for none of us has stood at the ])eak of any hill without seeing in the distance a hilltoj) just a little higher, a little more difficult to attain. Few of us realize, nor can we be l lamed for our blindness, just what possibilities stand within our ])ower of attainment. It is to permit us a glimpse into the future so that we may prejjare ourselves to climb the most rugged and difficult hills that are in the pathwax " of our lives that we are given the o])por- tunity of education. I lieliexe that was one of the biggest things that (iorham Xnrmal . " school did for me. Most of tile students wlm climb the welbwurn path of Campus Hill the first day of school in the fall iiave come as I did from homes where they have been sheltered and protected, from high schools where their teachers knew them intimately and worked on their individual talents. It is the first test of one ' s ability t i climb hills that one meets in this entirely strange environment where it is necessary to make a name for oneself and develop one ' s own talent. If this test is successfully met and the first storms of strangeness weathered, then G. N. S., with its well-trained faculty, has much to offer the student. By displaying new viewpoints on life and its possibilities, they point out to the individual the hilltops in the distance which, projicrly equi])ped, he may attain. The efforts of the individual then determine his gi al. lie has had his vision — the rest is for him. Among all the things we thank (icjrhani for. most of all we thank it for the visions of possibilities we were shown. This short ])oem seems to express my closing thoughts on your splendid theme; He saw in the distance the top of a hill. He went to work with the best of his will. He stumbled and fell but still he went on And worked at his task from dusk until dawn. For all who would live there is some distant peak, The high for the strong — the low for the weak. With desire to climb and never to stop. Life gives to him most who climbs to the top. Shirley Hartley, ' 31. page seventy Dear Readers: Hello, schoolmates ! It certainly makes me happy to be able to talk with all of you again. Memory is sending a great many pictures from my treasure chest for me to enjoy, as I always shall. Yes, I am teaching. I am principal of Hallock Memorial School, located in Plaintield, Massachusetts. Did I say teaching? A better word would have been studying. 1 get more and more pleasure from studying children and trying to find the reasons fur their many and varied acts. Mvery child presents a different problem, and e ery ])roblem seems to have a more interesting solution than the one before it. My school reminds me of a huge laborator - where numerous experiments in psychology are carried out each day. Of course I am most interested in the results of these experiments. As it appears to me, my job is to create situations. As long as I am able to keep the right situations foremost, the reactions are satisfactory. But let ' s talk nf other things. I stand on a hilltop among the Berkshires and look northward and eastward toward those other hilltops of Maine, I wish that by some miracle I might fly from my hilltoj) to yours, to work and play with you again, if only for a day or two. Howe er, as that is impossible, I take this opportunity to express my best wishes for a better Green and White than ever before. Sincereh ' vours. Harold jr. Hallcll. ' o?. It mav not seem at all ])sychological for a former student of G. X. S. who is — to use a well-worn phrase — " among the unemployed " to write an article for the Green and White. I can tell you that when I was asked to do so, my courage was about as high as that of a person in the reception room of a dentist ' s office waiting for that cheerful " Next ! " Xevertheless, here goes ! I wouldn ' t give up the friendships I have made, the knowledge I have acquired and the good times I had while at G. N. S. for anything in the world. Although I have no permanent position at present, I still stand by that magical word " Hope " and look forward to this coming year, I have been doing some substitute work in Grades II and III. I especially liked Grade III. Remember — if you want to make good — if you will persevere, just give the spoon in that alphabet soup of yours one more good twist. Two to one you ' ll spell Success for yourself. Wishes for the best of everything to Gorham Normal School and the Green and White. Madch ' ii B.

MISS ANDREWS ORGANIZATIONS ' rhe ])uri)osf (if tht ' numerous clubs and organizations of Gorhani Xunnal School is to encourage and aid in developing in their members such desirable and useful qualities as fellowship, loyalty to a worthy cause, a spirit of coo])eration. sociability and leadership. Among the leading social factors of the school are the numerous coinitx ' clubs, which strive to bring together all the members of each county for further ac(|uaint- ance and understanding. The clubs give entertainments during the year and are very active organizations. Among the counties already represented by these clubs are: York, Washington-Hancock, Aroostook, Oxford and a club for all students from Massachusetts. The fraternities. Lambda Pi Sigma and .Mjiha Lambda I ' .eta. are strong influ- ences, binding the young men of the school together, encouraging, as they do. a feeling of fellowship and goodwill. These clubs s])onsor a fraternity ball. ban(|uets and at least one dramatic entertainment during the year. Under the supervision of our music instructor. Miss .Miriam . ndre vs, the musicallv inclined students are organized into three very active grou]is, the girls ' glee club, the hoys ' glee club, and the orchestra. The girls ' glee clul) sang during Teachers ' Convention at Keith ' s Theatre and at Portland City Hall, at the dedi- cation exercises of Russell Hall, on . " uiierintendent ' s day, and, with the boys, pre- sented the operetta " Main ' zelle Taps. " The orchestra is composed of twenty-five well balanced pieces. It furnishes music at all of our entertainments. Closely allied to the music clubs is the Dramatic Club, which is composed of a selected group of about forty members and is under the direction of Miss jeanette Johnson, instructor in English and Literature. This year the clul) presented the plays " Kidnapping Hetty, " " The Right Answer, " and " De])ression Takes a Holi- day, " a skit written by one of the student body, Miss Gretchen Waltz. The Art Club, the Commuters ' Club and the Outdoor Club are three other active organizations all encouraging development in their particular fields and in cooperation and understanding. The Outdoor Club sponsors twenty hikes during the vear and those who attend twelve are awarded a monogram.

" I have like sentiments toward the Gorham Xornial School and was, therefore, pleased that Governor Gardiner chose me to express to you his sincere regrets at his inahility to be present on this occa- sion. In his Ijehalf I e.xtend to you the greeting of the State. On the ninth day of last November there was born to Governor Gardiner a child ; or, properly speaking, ujxjn that date the electorate for this State gave Governor Gardiner ' s child a license to live. The child goes by the name of .Admin- istrative Code. Like any husky growing child this one is for the present taking the entire time and attention of its fond parent. In truth, it would not be surprising if it were exercising a child ' s prerogative and causing our flear Governor to walk the floor nights. He begs to be excused. To truly represent the Governor is to be brevity personified. The last time I heard him speak his opening remark was, " .And in conclusion let me say — . " The Gorham Normal School is a part of our public school syste m. Its purpose is not alone to provide an opportunity for higher education, but primarily to educate leaders upon whom will fall the dutv of training the youth of America in intel- ligent, enlightened citizenship. We now have this beautiful gymnasium as an adjunct to its training facilities. May it perpetuate the ideals of the man who for thirty-seven years has given of his best in unselfish, untiring service to the school, and in whose honor it is named. May Russell Hall well serve the State ! Frrdcrich Robic. GREETINGS FROM THE EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT It certainly affords me a great deal of pleasure tu be present today and assist in the dedicatory exercises of this beautiful new building. I have been interested for a long time in the erection of a building which would serve the needs of Gorham Normal School for an auditorium and gymnasium. I am (jne of those who find it difficult to visualize a completed structure from an architect ' s plans or drawings. I find it possible to visualize all that goes into the construction of a building only in the coinpleted structure. I have seen this building only once, save on paper, and that only when the walls were about two-thirds up. The final completion more than fulfills ni - anticipation as to what it really would be like. Most certainly a great deal of credit should be gi en tu our efticient architect for hs faithful and painstaking work in the working out of all details of the building and to all contractors who have assisted him in the execution of his plans. Too much credit cannot be extended to Dr. Walter E. Russell, who has worked long and faithfully in the interests of this school for a period of thirty-seven years and who today sees a long cherished dream come into realization. To me the most important feature of the finished structure is not the auditorium, which j lays so vital a part in the modern life of any erlucatiunal [•age ninety-one institution. Here the students have an opportunity for assemblies, for musical and forensic activities, and they are also given opportunities to listen to occa- sional lecturers and speakers. Xor is it the gymnasium, important as that is in the life of any school, so far as formal gymnasium exercises are concerned and so far as interscholastic and intermural contests are carried en. The most important feature of this beautiful new auditorium-gymnasium is that we are afforded an opportunity to work out for every student a physical program which will fit his individual needs. A great many years ago a Latin writer was responsible for the statement " Mens saiia in corporc sano ' ' a literal translation of which would he that it is of supreme importance that there should be a healthy mind in a sound body. There is nothing new about the importance of physical education, although at the time those sentiments were expressed, physical education activities were confined to the chosen few. W ' e differ today from that earlier program in that we are striving to make a physical education program possible for all the boys and girls in our public schools. It is of supreme importance that the body should be developed in such a manner that it will be sound and healthy as well as that the mind should be developed. hile we realize that mind triumphs over matter and that we occasionally see instances where a powerful mind can efficiently do its work although present in a frail body, yet to do its best work, it is absolutely essential that the two should go together. They are indissolubly inter-related, and neither alone can be at its best unless both are developed efficiently and well. And so we are enabled to give to these students in Gorham Normal School an all-round and well-developed program of health and physical educa- tion. True, we will not give them that intensive training which will prepare them for directors and supervisors of physical education, but we will give them a training so that when they go forth as teachers in our public schools they will be able, not only in our more populous communities, but also in our more remote and sparsely settled rural areas, to give to the boys and girls under their charge a program of organized play and recreation which should be the natural heritage of every hoy and girl. (Jltentimes in our busy everyday life we are too apt not to give deserved tribute to a person until it is too late. It seems almost like a tragedy that very many times we do not say the word that should be said while it can be appre- ciated. Too many times we express our ajjpreciation after the person has left us never to return. I consider it most appropriate that this building should bear the name of the man who has so long and so efficiently served this school and the state. In naming this building Russell Hall, we not only honor Dr. Russell, but we honor ourselves as members of the Board of Trustees of the State Normal Schools, and we honor the entire state as well. May the building long and well serve the purpose for which it was erected. If it will only in a small part meet our ideals, we shall feel that the lalior and funds expended in its erection have not been in vain. Dr. Bertram :. Packard. page nincly-two THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PHYSICAL EQUIPMENT AT THE GORHAM NORMAL SCHOOL hen and in whose mind tiic idea uf a Normal School at Gorham originated the writer does not know. It is, however, a matter of record that on January 18, 1877, Colonel Frederick Robie presented an order in the House of Representatives call- ing upon the State Superintendent of Common Schools to investigate the desir- ability of establishing a normal school in the western part of the state, and to report to the next Legislature. On the Sith of January, 1878, the State Superintendent of Common Schools, the Hon. William J. Corthell, reported in response to that order and recommended that the Trustees of the Normal Schools be instructed to locate and establish a normal school in any municipality in the western part of the state that would provide land, buildings, and equipment for such a school. On the 15th of February of that year a bill passed the State Legislature authorizing the State Board of Normal School Trustees to establish a normal school in Gorham, when and if the town met the conditions recommended by the State Superintendent of Common Schools. At the annual town meeting at Gorham on March 4, 1878, the town appro- priated $15,000 to aid in erecting a normal school building, and also appointed a building committee composed of its leading business men to have full charge of the proposed normal school enterprise. This building committee recognized that $15,000 would not be money enough so they subscribed themselves and called upon other citizens of the town to make voluntary subscriptions to increase the fund. Some thirty citizens subscribed sums varying from $25 to $2,000 each. The project was further aided by the action of the Trustees of the Gorham Seminary who gave the seminary building and the lot on which it stood, the lot now occupied by the Junior High School building, to be used for a dormitory and dormi- tory grounds. So actively and so efficiently did this building committee work that on December 26, 1878, at suitable dedicatory exercises a complete normal school plant valued at $40,000, consisting of a school building which is part of the build- ing now known as Corthell Hall and a dormitory building all equipped and ready for use, were turned over to the State Normal School Trustees. This balanced school plant consisting of a unit for classroom and a unit for home purposes met the needs of the school for fifteen years and would have been adequate to meet those needs for another ten years had it continued for that length of time. This was not to be for the dormitory building was destroyed by fire in the fall of 1804. The Legislature of 1895 was appealed to to provide a new dormitory building, the first building the Legislature had been asked to provide for this school. Strange as it may seem a resolve for this purpose met with strenuous opposition in the Committee on Education in the Legislature. The committee rendered a majority report that the resolve ought not to pass and a minority report signed by three men that it ought to pass. The Legislature accepted the minority report. That summer work was begun on the building now known as Robie Hall. The first appropriation was not sufficient to complete any part of the building and the Legislature of 1807 was called upon to make further appropriation. This new dormitory was com- pleted and ready for use in September, 1808. This building was named for page ninety-three saMiiwtWsaairi m Ex -governor Frederick Rohie who had been most active in establishing the school at Gorham and who contributed generously toward the furnishings of tlie new dormitory. Again the school was provided with a well-balanced school plant, but as the school increased in numbers and the demand for a broader curriculum necessitated more classrooms, the classroom unit became insufficient. The Legislature of 1903 was asked to build an addition to Corthell Hall. This Legislature made an appropriation for that purpose, but not one large enough to complete the extension as planned and the I egislature of 190.5 was called upon to make an additional appropriation. This resulted in the extension to Corthell Hall which nearly doubled its capacity, and provided rooms for all the practice schools as well as additional rooms for the normal school students. The rapidly increasing numbers in attendance at the normal school during the latter part of the first decade of 1900 necessitated increasing the dormitory facili- ties. As a temporary means for meeting that emergency the Gorham Academy was leased by the State and remodeled inside to provide rooming accommodations for thirty or more students and teachers. It was recognized, however, that this was only a temporary arrangement and inadequate to meet the full needs. So again the Legislature made a partial appropriation which was supplemented with another appropriation in 1915 and in January, 1916, East Hall was opened to students. Academy Hall was at once remodeled to make shoj) rooms for the Industrial Arts Department, to be used in connection with the brick sho]i which had previously been built on the Academy grounds. ith these new buildings a balance was again established between the school unit and the home unit of the Gorham Normal School. Xo further buildings were needed to meet the requirements of the school until after the war when students again began to apply in larger numbers, thus overcrowding Corthell Hall. This situation was relieved by the building of a new practice school building and so releasing the six rooms that had been used for the practice school pupils. This practice school building was built jointly by the town and the state and placed on the lot where the old Seminary building, which was used for the first dormitory, had stood. This ] ractice school known as the Junior High School, which cares for all the children in the village from the kindergarten through the ninth grade, was opened for u.se in the fall of 1926. The increasing demands for health education in the teacher training program and the need of expanding library facilities of the school were becoming more a] ])arent each year. In 1929 ste]« were taken looking forward to the establishment of a building to ])n)vide for an auditorium and a gymnasium, permitting the auditorium then in use to be added to the lil)rary e(|uipnient to provide a library study room and ])roviding for the first time a modern health education building. Several firms of architects were asked to prepare comi)etitive plans and esti- mates of cost for such a building. These architects consulted the school authorities in regard to the needs to be met by the building, viewed the ])roposed site for the new building and worked out their plans. Early in 1931 they each in turn presented their ] lans to the I oard of Trustees for consideration. The ])lans pre- sented by Raymond Mayo of Portland were finally accepted as promising most nearly to meet the needs of the situation. Detailed blueprints and sjiecifications were ])repared and bids were solicited.

(ii;c ' iiiiicty-foiir fe ?7sa2iri This huildins; which tile State X(5rmal School Trustees named Riisseil Hali is arcliitecturally one of the most attractive l)uil(lings on the Gorham Campus. It is constructed of brick of varied shades and trimmed with artificial stone. The building is practically fireproof. The auditorium has a sloping floor and is furnished with over five hundred stationary theatre chairs. There are accordion doors at the back of the auditorium separating it from the gymnasium. When these are open the gymnasium can be used as an extension of the auditorium. This building again establishes a reasonable laalance between the home unit and the school unit of the Gorham Normal School. Dr. Waller Earlc Russell. ODE By the Rev.

It is a privilege, first, because I rejoice with you in this notable addition to the physical equipment of the School provided in part through the loyal generosity of its graduates. It is a privilege, too, that I may again look into the faces of some of you with wluim I enjoyed so happy associations here in my home state of Maine. It is particu- larly a privilege to be present when so deserved a tribute is being paid a great leader in the teacher-training field, Dr. Walter E. Russell. The trustees have given deserved recognition to a man who has deeply impressed both his per- sonality and his fine philosophy upon the schools of this state. Dr. Russell has administered this institution so that it conserves the great values which were built into it 1;)y those who labored before him and at the same time, looks forward to a brilliant future. Throughout this country, there is no other insti- tution which has labored more worthily and effectively in the sound training of teachers than has this institution here at Gorham. It has to me been a great joy to have had the close friendship of Dr. Russell, so that I am verv hajipy with you that this fine building is to bear his name. It is well for us, as we dedicate this building, to remind ourselves of the fundamental contributions which this School and others like it have made to the development of public education. The normal schools of New England were schools which started with ;i new purpose, that of improving the prepa- ration of teachers for the common schools. Because thev had this new aim, they were able to do something which other earlier schools with different objectives had not done at all. While, necessarily, they retained some of the characteristics of the New England academy, yet, from the very outset, are to be noted in them characteristics which the academies never knew. Strikingly, we find in them at the start a recognition of the scientific nielhod of teaching. Even the colleges had not given recognition to this method. It is significant that, at about the time the normal schools of New England were established, . gassiz began his work at Harvard College. Immediately, the teaclHT-training institutions felt the eft ' ect of his influence and there began an interest in nature study and in the application of the scientific method to nature sttuly which has profoundly affected our (.nlire public school s sltin. tjuyot in the field of geography supplemented the work of .- gassiz, and a lillle later James, although teaching in a college, found that the first and niosl im- portant fruits of his stud) ' were to be produced in institutions for the training of teachers. It is true that the normal schools, of which this was one of the earliest, were of necessity obliged to deal with the matcri.il w hich came to thetu, often with meager ec[uipment in previous schooling. In those early days, students of such schools were not generally graduates of high school, and the period of training was extremely brief. Nevertheless, the attention ])aid to the technifpie of teaching set them definitely apart from any other institutions of their time. They have continued to be thus separated in ]nir]iose frcjui otiier cliools. [•lu c iiiiicly-six ' snaiTS From those early times to the present day, the normal schools have heen expanding in relation to the changing conditions and requirements of edu- cation. With the expansion of high schools and with the raising of standards in all i)rofessional fields, this School has come to that day when no student is to be found here unless he has had the reasonably adecjuate background of l)reparation to be found in a good high school course. The necessity which (ince existed for ])roviding general courses for normal school students is no longer ]jresent. Hence, this School, in common with other good normal schools, can devote its attention chiefly to technical phases of educaticm. It is, first of all. a professional school, 1)Ut with its professional offerings are happily combined cultural courses that enlarge the vision and widen the horizon of its students. There is one achievement of the normal schools wdiich ought not to pass unnoted. Only fifteen years ago, a group of state officers of education repre- senting eastern states were discussing the problem of securing adequately trained teachers for rural schools. It was the opinion of every person present that it was probably too niuch to exi)ect that country schools could ever gen- erally command the services of graduates of normal schools, that the most to be hoped for was that country schools might occasionally have the service of a trained teacher or that many teachers of such schools might perhaps have had a portion of the course of a teacher-training institution. At the present time, however, the majority of the schools of this state are served by normal school graduates. It is possible to believe that, in the not distant future, all the schools can command trained service. This is an achievement of prime importance to every child in the state. The friends of education everywhere may well rejoice that normal schools have come to be recognized as among the most important of the educational activities of the people. There are indeed no other schools or institutions of any character whatsoever that are so important as the institutions which train teachers. From this school and other similar schools of the state go every year large numbers of young men and women who immediately come in contact with tens of thousands of our children. The daily lives of these children are at once affected by the character of training wdTich these young men and women have had. In every classroom of IMaine at this very moment, educational advantages are better because this and the other normal schools of Maine have existed. There certainly are no other higher educational institutions that so immediately and so profoundly affect the development of childhood as these schools dedicated to teaching. However, it is nut well to think altdgether nf the present and of the past. These institutii)ns must carr}- into the future whatever leadership they have already attained, and the_ - must look to the securing of still greater leadership. The normal schools of Maine as of other states can and should be supported by the people as the chief agencies for the training of teachers. They must not be so placed as to seem to be in a position of inferiority to any other teacher- training institutions, whether public or private. Such an inferiority does not tayi ' nincly-scvcn feWJiamrs exist and should not he implied. In f;icult_ - equi])ment. as in plant and build- ings, the leading normal schoijls uf Xew England are not less well equipped or less well prepared to assume leadership in the field of professional education than are the schools of education of colleges and universities. It would be most unfortunate if the public should get the impression that institutions of this kind arc in some way inferior to those which happen to have collegiate affiliation. Moreover, it is especially wholesome for all who are to teach anywhere in the school system that they be trained to some extent in a teacher-training environment. It is cause for satisfaction that, in the State Normal Schools of Maine, courses for the preparation of teachers of special subjects have been established so that it is not necessary to look outside the state or to private!) ' endowed schools for opportunities of a special character such as are indicated in the teaching of home economics and practical arts. It is possible to believe that the expansion of normal schools going forward for the next generation as it has for the past may well contemplate the preparation of teachers for senior high schools as well as for elementary and junior high schools. The normal school can and should keep a little closer than other schools can to the changing requirements of public education. It is imperative that schools like this one should study closel} ' the activities of the public schools. They should know what is going on in them, what new trends are aflfecting them, and they should be prepared to take active part in the development of those trends that are wise and in the checking of those which seem not to be sound. The normal schools are concerned not onlj- with training teachers for the iiui)lic schools as they are, but they are concerned likewise with helping the pui)lic schools to liecome better. It is entirely possible that the leading normal schools of Maine will look f(ir ard to the time when not only will their graduates receive degrees, but when, in certain ones of tlu-m, opportunities may be given for post-graduate work. A school is measured not only by the students it receives, but likewise by the extent to which it can carry students to the conclusion of the studies in the field which engages their interest. At the beginning, it was thought that normal schools had to do chiefly, it not solel} ' , with the improvement of methods of teaching. This has been a continuing purpose of the schools. But it is no longer the only reason for their e.xistencc. There came a second stage. That was one in which it was recognized that education has also to do with the application of knowledge. So our schools began to be concerned with helping children to make effectixc ai ])lication of km iw ledge. We arc lujw in a third er;i. W hiU ' we continue to emphasize the two established objectives of echuation. we .ue t-mphasizing increasingly our obli- gations toward the child himself. ' .-ue considering not only what may be done for him in the knowleclge which he mav aci|uire. but what we may do for him likewise iiy helping him to his own highest indi idual de eU)pment. {•age ii ' uicty-ciiihl ■ jsisiME Ml»fWsoiKr ' In discussing this question with a friend some time ago, when I had been speaking- perhaps somewhat too strongly about the work of the schools, he remarked, " Vou talk as all teachers do. You speak as though the child belonged to the school and as though he had no interest outside it. " I replied that I was very sorry to have given that impression Iiccause it is not at all my theory that the school owns the child. Xo more. houe er. can it be maintained that the state, the church, or even the parents have final ownership of him. All these agencies have a large and commanding interest in the child and a great obligation to see that their interest is employed for the benefit of the child ; yet. in the last analysis, it must be recognized that the child belongs to himself and that it is the business of all these agencies so to cooperate as to bring him into an adulthood in which he shall have attained the most complete stature, mental, physical, moral, and spiritual, that he can attain, and to help him conie into a realization of his self ownership with all the implications of responsibility for individual and .social welfare that reasoning adulthood implies. So education comes to see that it must help the child to understand himself and increasingly to realize himself at his highest potentiality. The evidence presented by this building is not only evidence of widening requirements of the child, but it |)roves the intention of the educational leader- ship and of the people of Maine that, as these obligations increase, so shall the facilities for meeting them be augmented. I am happy to add my congratula- tions for the achievements which we celebrate and my good wishes that your brightest dreams for the future of this School may be realized. Dr. Pdvsoit Smith.

With the building of Rus- sell Hall, including as it does a large auditorium, the old assembly room in Corthell Hall is vacated and is to be made into a new study library. r oth floor and wall shelves are to be installed with study tallies and chairs to accommodate one hundred students. The immediate goal is ten thousand books, although the room can very easily take care of twice that number. The old li])rary will be used as a classroom for library science, and the present reference room will be devoted entirely to magazines when the plans for the new librarv are completed. STUDENT GOVERNMENT The student government of Gorham Normal School is an institution of which we are proud. Its purpose is to promote the spirit of mutual heli)fulness, service, and personal responsibility among the students. Each student is expected to uphold the highest standards of honor and integrity in all matters of personal conduct. The House Committee, composed of nine members, a president and vice-presi- dent, is elected by the student council to supervise the dormitories. The members are chosen from the Advanced Senior and Senior classes the first semester and from all three classes the last semester. This committee, which is helped, advised, and guided by Miss Jordan, Dean of Women, meets weekly with her to plan for the welfare of dormitory life. The girls who serve on the committee suggest ways of making our life here together more worth while. The willingness of students to adopt these suggestions makes many phases of dormitory life more pleasant. Several social functions have been sponsored by the House Committee, the first being a Hallowe ' en Party held in the gymnasium. At this party many strange sights were seen and everybody had a good time. The Christmas Party, held in the Center, where Santa Clans appeared and gave gifts to all, had the true spirit of Christmas. The gifts presented were enjoyed and then later sent to the Express Santa Clans in Portland for children who might otherwise not have the joy of Christmas. Members of the House Committee for the first half year were Madeline White, president : Helen Emery, vice-president ; Althea Day, secretary ; Winnette Fossett, Thelma Sprowl, Lettie Day, Ruth Robbins, Dorothy Dunn, Helen Brett, Martha Chesley, and Mary Stevens. Those who served the last half year were Lettie Day, president; Helen Brett, vice-president: Elizabeth Syphers. secretary; Dorothy Ham. Ruth Jackins, Marjorie Nash. Margaret MacDonald, Helen .Severns, Helen Emery, Alberta Van Horn, and Leona Toothaker. THE CIVIC COMMITTEE The Civic Committee was just organized in lit ' 28. and is at the present time one of the most active and important organizations in the entire school. It consists of three faculty advisers and representatives from every organization and every class division in the school, thus it is very representative of the school body as a whole. Many of the most important activities curried out by the school are sponsored and directed by this committee. This year they directed Superintendent ' s Day, the high school basketball tournament, the sending of the two school delegates. Miss Marjorie Moody and Mr. Thomas Abbott, to the New York convention, and two special chapel exercises. page one hundred one J ii ifsaaiTi Y. W. C A.

" isitor : " All of which would mean very little unless actually carried out. " G. X. S.: " Oh, but it was carried out I The cabinet members of the Y and other members of the association were there early the day we arrived for the double purpose of helping us to find our rooms and making us feel more at home. Down at the foot of Robie Hall stairs they had the darlingest little information booth done in the Y colors, blue and white, and the girls there were wonderful to us. That eve- ing thev gave us just the best time at an informal ' Get-Acquainted " party in the old gym ! " Visitor: " That certainly does sound good, Sally. What was their next activity? " G. X. S. : " Two weeks later a recc])tion for the Juniors, the first formal func- tion of the year, was sjjonsored by their association. They had a long receiving line, a splendid program, and best of all. Peg, dancing and — eats! " Visitor: " I guess you do have good times, all right. Our Y has weekly prayer meetings for the entire association and bi-weekly business meetings of the cabinet. Is your plan similar to this? " G. N. S. : " Yes, much the same. " Visitor: " Did you go to Cam]) Maqua this last summer? " G. N. S. : " Xo, I didn ' t go, but our Y had five delegates there. One Thursday night they gave us a delightful little ])lay depicting life at Cam]) Maqua. " Visitor: " Did they like Maqua as well as we did. ' " G. N. S.: " I think they did, all right! Our president was chosen representa- tive of the Two- ' ear Teacher Training Colleges of New England on the Xational Council of the Y. W. C. A. while there, too. So she has been busy all winter at- tending conferences and w-riting suggestions to the new Y ' s of New hngland. Msitor: " Our finances worry us more than anything else. Mow do you ])ro- vide for your ex])enses . ' " G. N. S. : " The members of the organization were divided into ten groups. Each grou]) found some way of earning money, such as socials, teas, and jiarties. Then, of course, there was our annual bazaar in Center. . good entertainment and games added to both financial and social success. " Visitor : " The year is so nearly over now that I su])pose the Y work is nearly done. " G. X. S. : " Xo, indeed, soon the second Junior cabinet will have served its time and the new cabinet for next year must be chosen. Then comes the tea for the advisory board, the banquet for tlie old and new cabinets and the advisorv board, and last, but not least, the liig jiicnic for all the members of the association. " page one hundred tivo ■• ' Wsoairs Y. M. C. A. Thf V. I. C. A. opened this )ear with twenty-six men enrnlled. A program committee was elected and at once began jireparation for the regular meetings. S])ecial sijeakers were secured, both from within and without the group, and arrange- ments were made for song services and movies. All of these have jtroved enter- taining as well as educational. The purposes of our meetings are to promote a feeling of fellowship and to stimulate interest in the physical, intellectual, and spiritual phases of life. Besides the money received from dues, we have continued our practice of sell- ing G. N. S. pencils, hasty notes, and Christmas cards. This year we were able to send three men to the State Y. M. C. A. Conference in . ugusta. They not only had a most enjoyable e. ])erience there, but also lirought back to the grou]) inspiring and helpful reports. The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W ' . C. . . united in arranging the Junior Reception. Early in the fall the two organizations conducted at .Alden ' s Pond an impressive evening service, the effectiveness of which was in no degree lessened by the wienie roast w ' hich followed, . bout mid-year a program was arranged for a joint meet- ing in the new auditorium. An invitation to attend was extended to the entire stu- dent body and faculty. A large audience, therefore, listened to the helpful, inspir- ing address given by the Reverend Stanley Carne. During the entire year there has been a fine spirit of cooperation between the Y. W. C. . . and the Y. M. C, A. SUPERINTENDENT ' S AND PRINCIPALS DAY The second annual Superintendent ' s and Principal ' s Day was observed on November 19, 1931. The purpose of this day is to make superintendents and prin- cipals better acquainted with the work of the normal school in the training of teachers. The morning was spent in observing classes in the normal and training departments. Guests were entertained at luncheon in East Hall dining-room.

Woodward of the faculty. The selections this year were very pleasing. The first entertainment was given by the Salon Artists. Richness of tone, facility of technique, and depth of expression evidenced the artistry of Miss Recca BrekofF, violinist. J. Angus Winter, accompanist, played several much-enjoyed solos. The third member of the group was Mrs. Gladys Russell Cook, soprano. Her .songs were given with a skill that was enhanced liy her charm and gracious- ness of manner. The second concert was that jjresented by the Nottingham Singers in the auditorium of Russell Hall. Their program included light opera selections, ballads. negro spirituals, and popular songs. Finding the acoustic properties of the hall pleasing and the audience enthusiastic, these artists gave a splendid and generous program. The members of the grou]i were Jack Gruhn and Howard Mayon, tenors; William Weigle. baritone ; 1-iichard Grayson, Itass : and Charles Touchette. pianist. The final entertainment was given by Miss Iva Roberts, who read " The Swan, " a play by Ferenc Molnar. The audience sat entranced while Miss Roberts changed swiftly from match-making mother to her daughter who was " twenty odd " years and then to indifi ' erent prince, who was the reason for all the schemes of the mother. page one hundred jour ssaiT] WASHINGTON PAGEANT The Senior c lass drama to lie jiresented at graduaticin this year is to be a ]»geaiit de])ictiii!,f the 1 life of Washington. written by the student s themselves under the leadershi]! nt Mis s Esther Wood am 1 Miss Jeanette Johnson of the faculty.

Frame The Gorham Xornial School cross country team completed its second consecu- tive season without a loss. The high light of the year was defeating the strong Rates Freshman team on its home course. Aluch credit is due Coach Packard. The team and Athletic Council showed their appreciation hy awarding him a varsity letter. In the interclass cross country season, each of the three classes entered first and second teams. Six dual runs were held. The Mid-Seniors led with SO points. The Advanced Seniors accumulated 68, and the Juniors trailed with IS. On the basis of these runs the varsity team was selected. The season opened with the Freeport run on October ?th. Twitchell, the Junior sensation, and Johnson, a veteran, tied for first place. Winslow of Free- port was passed at the tape by Smith. Storey, Winslow, Jean and Anderson, all of Gorham, were next to appear. The final score was Gorham, 17 : Freeport, 46. Deering invaded Gorham a week later. Gorham and Deering men alternated for the first four places. ' ictory for Gorham seemed doubtful until Smith, Storey, and Jean placed next in order. This 2 " -37 victory was the second consecutive win over Deering. At Heljron, Gorham placed eight out of the first nine men. Twitchell. Smith, Jean, and Storey tied for first place. The boys celebrated this decisive 16-47 win in the swimming pool of the splendid new Hebron gymnasium. Gorham closed its season at Lewiston against the strong, undefeated Bates Freshman team. Twitchell led the pack home in record-breaking time, followed by Olds and Wilds of Bates. Jean, Smith. Storey, and McSorley followed to make the final tally 23-34 for Gorham. By graduation we lose three good men : Jean, Anderson, and inslow. With five strong veterans left, however, and a number of new men, prospects are strong for another clean slate next year. Jack Smith will captain the Gorham boys, and Linwimd .Xbbdtt. as manager, is arranging a strong schedule for next fall. l agc one hiiiidml nlnclccn J c ES I WsaaiT] D. Ingham G.

The hrst varsity tjame in the new gynmasiuni, and incidentally the first one of the season, was played with Salem Normal School on Xew Year ' s Day. Gorhani started the year right liy winning 38- " 23, The Massachusetts Club was host to both teams after the game. Coming from behind in the sensational rally in the fourth period the Green and bite basketeers gained a three-point lead, only to see Cheverus turn the tables through excellent team play in the waning seconds of the fray to win by a 25-22 score. The return game was very similar. For three quarters it was anvbodv ' s game, hut in that last (|uarter the " Fighting Irish " were simply not to be denied. At Gould, Gorham put on a belated last quarter attack to win, 3()-2(i. Gould led at the close of the third period, but could not withstand the final period rush of the visiting hoopmen. It was Gould ' s first loss of the year. In the return game the Gould team was handicapped by illness of two of its members : the score once more was in Gorham ' s favor, ' JO-IS. The Farmington Xormal School five won the second consecutive leg on the Chrissikos Trophy by defeating the Gorham Normal School quintet 40- ' 2 " 2 at Farm- ington and 5G-36 at GorhauL Farmington ' s overwhelming victories were due to a past-passing, strong-shooting attack that was led by Weliber, who personally accounted for 50 points in the two games. After suffering a 42-11 defeat at Gorham, Fryeburg Academy outdid itself and surprised even its staunchest friends by winning, 2 7-2 6, at Fryeliurg. Gorham closed its season by defeating the clever Bridgewater Normal five. 34-27. Given a hard battle for the first two periods, she finally forged ahead and won by a comfortable margin. Leahy, star for the visitors, was captain at Gorham a vear ago. ■Of 1 ' hintdrcd tv. ' cntx-onc : Wtiainr3 Coach Wieden I. Gordon A. Brocato BASEBALL. 1931 R. Corey C. Kelley R. Smith L.

The varsity season started immediately after this series with a win over Deer- ing High School. In this game " Ed " Leahy distinguished himself by allowing the Purple only three hits, while he collected four for himself. Gorham scored in the second inning and led throughout the rest of the game. Both games with Lewiston High were wild and woolly afifairs. Both teams used three pitchers. The wins of Lewiston came through a single in the pinch fol- lowing the wildness of the (iorham pitchers. Lewiston was outhit at home 13-9, and at Gorham 13-T. Due to ditficulty in securing games, the .Mumni offered to play. In sjiite of an all-star battery, consisting of Hallett and Watson, ex-captains of the school. Gor- ham succeeded in winning. Hallett allowed but three hits. Most of the runs were made on miscues. During four years of baseball com])etition with Fryelnirg. it has never failed to rain throughout the home game. This year was no exception. ] Iiscues and errors were ])lentiful and hits rare. At Fryeburg tables were reversed, and once again Gorham triumphed. This was a fifth win over Fryeburg out of eight games. At the close of the season " Bill " Ransom was elected captain and " Irv " Gor- don manager. Graduation has badly riddled the team for another year. John Anderson and Captain Ransom are the only two lettermen that remain. There are. however, several others who. with the experience they have had this last year or two, should fill the positions made vacant by graduation very creditably. The outstanding problem in connection with the sport was the difficultv in securing games. High schools and academies are all organizing into leagues with heavy schedules of games. Xo other normal school in the state, except lachias. has a baseball team, and the distance is prohibitive. Farmington is endeavoring to sponsor track as a spring sport, and Gorham is giving serious consideration to it, but the facilities do not yet seem adequate for two interscholastic spring activities. page one Iniiidrcd Iwcniy-lhrcc e :WeJ E i ' » " Ws3inri CLASS COUNCILS Advanced Seniors Worcester aeniors McSorley Ransom Johnson INTERCLASS ATHLETICS At thf l)c.t;inning of the school vear, each class selects its class council, consist- ing; of three niemhers. The duties of each council are to organize the teams, select officials, and arrange schedules for the six sports which the interclass athletic pro- gram provides. Each class is expected to provide two teams for every sport except baschall. One team is known as the Major Team, the other, the Minor. Both class and individual awards are made at the close of each season. The class awards con- sist of trophies and cups donated by clubs and business firms. Individual awards consist of stripes — white for Major Team members and green for those belonging to Minor Teams. Five white stripes or ten green ones entitle an individual to his class numerals.

Once In A Lifetime ' Twas Jan. 21. when thru the dining room The boys began to wait, and the dishes to boom, The ' vaiters " stood by their s tations with care. Just as thougli the head waitress really were there. Each one nl us sitting real straight in his place. While ripples of laughter spread over each face. Harvey in a hairnet, and Bud in a tie. Had just started out a new trade to try. Soon in the kitchen there arose such a clat- ter, We looked from our places to see what was the matter. Away with the food, they flew like a flash, Spilt ofT the milk, and lugged in the hash. " Chet " in the door, with a tray full of tea. Was blocking the road for as many as three When, what to my wondering eyes should appear But a hot flustered John. " Tea with milk, " now I hear. The boys are quick footed, with hands all aflutter, Trying to keep the milk from the butter. More rapid than eagles, our followers came, They whistled and shouted and called many names. Now Twitchell, now Harvey, now Wilson, Jack Sprat, On Story, on Rawnsley, on Leonard, Chet Pratt, To the end of the hall, with cake sauce and all, Xow " grab away, grab away, grab away all, " " As dry leaves that before the wild hurri- cane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, " So out to the kitchen for crackers they flew With trayloads of bread and raspberries, too. And then in a twinkling I heard near the door " Rosebud " inquiring if they wanted some more. Over in the corner was Ingham alone, Getting tea and hot water, and how his eye shone ! Then up from the table got the people in a flash, I wish I knew how to make them all dash. Xow John begins to load up his tray With silver and glasses as though it were play. In another direction comes Chet w-ith some plates, Juggling as though they were merely stuffed dates. Now I see some of them taking up large tips, So I yelled to Ray Story to see what he gits. He hurried over to show me his spoils, I found that a bullel rewarded his toils. How well the boys did I ' ll not try to say. But I guess they ' re pretty good in most every way. I agc one hundred lliirty-ftvc c ' --r s ii « WiMia 3 WHY GIRLS COME TO GORHAM It was one of those cold, pale, iiidetinitc nights of late winter. Only a trace of the fast disappearing snow could be seen in the hollows of the fields. The trees were drab and gaunt, clad neither by the foliage of summer nor by the sparkling festive dress of winter. All was still, save the quiet, solemn grandfather clock in the hall striking twelve. This seemed a signal, however, for the midnight antics. The wind which had been whistling softly now hissed threats and warnings. A shutter creaked and groaned under the added pressure, then suddenly jerked to the ground. The cat in the neighboring yard seemed to become bewitched as it searched in vain for high C. A branch of a tree, like a giant hand, scraped harshly across my window, pointing an accusing finger at me. Suddenly there was a movement in the room above me. Soft foot falls echoed stealthily on the stairs. My breathing grew heavy and difficult, my tongue became thick with fright. They came nearer. They were in the adjoining room. They were at my door ! The door opened swiftly and silently. Then — my sister entered and said, " Thank heavens you aren ' t asleep ! Do y ou know where that last movie magazine is: I can ' t find it anywhere. " Joscl liinc Saivyer. RUSSELL HALL Behold me before 30U, a thing of great beauty. A joy to the many who caused me to be, A symbol of faith, and the name of sweet service ; In me there are virtues both unseen and seen. The soul and the mind are my first aspinrtions. The soul to enrich and by love made to grow. The mind and emotions get due contemplation : Though rightly conceived, they must know control. So growth and control will be traced beside beauty Upon my bright walls unmarked by a stain : And the scroll that unwinds will tell a grand story As each passing year adds its tribute to Fame. il nrv McGiirn. {tage one hundred thirty-six sH isiME ' ia ' -- ? ?!Misir: CALENDAR SEPTEMBER, 19:u Sepleiiihcr 7.

There ' s a bonny, lioiniy s])0t Where the green and white Proudly waves on high As a beacon light. May our lives be as true As its meaning has taught. While we work and sing In this bonny, bonny spot. Oh, the tasks are hard. . nd the days are long. But we conquer all With a cheering song, And the G. X. S., Whate ' er her lot. Will be loved for aye In that bonny, bonny sjiot. B. B. Morris. IfsasTT] FAIREST NORMAL We rise, Fairest Xormal, thy spirit to show — And to honor the trust that we bear : ' Tis a trust that on others we ' ll only bestow hen duty shall call us elsewhere. But a place in our lives thou hast won e ermore. Thru the years that are passing apace, And when we from thy ]3ortals the future explore, e ' ve a picture that naught can efface. Thy green showest life in its s])ring at the morn Ere our brows have been wrinkled with care. But full more shall it mean as the years shall adorn The calling for which we prepare. And thy white is a symbol of purity born ith a vision of lofty ideals : May nuth ' s ]iurity last and be never withdrawn, hen tlie future its secret reveals. Then hail, Fairest Xormal, once more do we sing. For we know that youth speedeth away ; Let us love thee today, take the tril)nte we bring, Attempting in vain to rejiay : As thy daughters and sons we ' ll be brave and be true. Thy traditions we ' ll keep and defend. Take our pledge of allegiance which now we renew. May thy prestige all classes transcend.
