Pittenger — ■ " No, mental activity! " R. Atkinson — " Well, motor activity must come before mental activity. I oppose it. " Pittenger — ■ " Your arguments are all good, but I think we can get the material in plenty of time, if we can only see our way through financially. " McGilvrey — " Well, we might as well cease debating at once. When it comes up in Assembly in the morning I will quickly kill it off. We stand adjourned. " Was it squelched ? ? ? ? ? ?

An Epoch-Making Faculty Meeting Meeting called to order by Pres. McGilvrey. Subject under discussion: To have or not to have an Annual. Pres. McGilvrey — " As I was saying, the unrestrained student body have allowed their school spirit to run away with them and are clamoring for an Annual. Shall we allow them to inflict upon the school a " bulletin " of the sort they would concoct, or squelch the restless ardor of youth in the green bud? " Marker — " By the way, would this excuse the board from any of their work? No? Well I vote no annual; we must have work. " Humphrey — " We have no art, no genius, none of the heavenly love of beauty pos- sessed by those who enroll in larger schools. I for one vote ' no ' . " H. Atkinson — " There is not enough time ; we should at least have six months in which to prepare it. Better not have an Annual than one which will dis- grace us. We can not get the material. Our school is not — , well, in fact, this school has not the requisite literary or artistic ability to publish the kind of Annual we want. " Layton — " That ' s it. (Nods) Exactly. Now for instance, my history lessons will be of a length that will leave no time for animal reflections. " Hopkins — " Oh, bugs, we had them in Pittsburg, and you don ' t know what you ' ve missed until you have one. " Olson— " So much in future life depends on a knowledge of the formation of the earth ' s crust. Why, the student body may die without ever realizing that in the future ages the land will be entirely worn away by erosion. Geography, the greatest science — " Van Deusen — " Well, I for one am bent on seeing the Annual go through. " Layton — " Well, I always knew you were bent on something. " R. Atkinson — " Would the Annual be a form of ' motor activity ' ? " 59

The Awakening IT was an ideal evening ; spring had coaxed the whole outdoors into put- ting on her coolest, freshest green and out across the campus the apple- orchard on Normal Hill was a mass of pink and white blossoms. Eloise Vane, the most popular girl in the dormitory, sat by the study window, looking out across the path that leads to the orchard. There was a dreamy look in her brown eyes as she thought what a grand place that orchard would be for a stroll in the moonlight, and a smile of anticipa- tion came as she remembered that Harley had said he would come to the dormitory at eight o ' clock. The smile developed into a light-hearted laugh as she thought of the big " Skinner " with his slouch hat and care-free man- ner, who had won for himself almost first place in her thoughts. A walk in the apple-orchard with Harley ! Why not ? So busy was Eloise with her thoughts that she did not hear a light rap on her study door and was not aware of her visitor ' s presence until Miss Rawson laugh- ingly said — " Well, which one are you dreaming about, now? " " How did you know I was dreaming of any one? But to tell the truth I was thinking that I would take Harley out in the orchard for a ramble this evening. You know he has not proposed yet and they gen- erally do that before I have known them two weeks — but I guess apple- blossoms and a moon will bring him around! " Miss Rawson had scarcely had time to express her opinion when two other girls entered the room. One of them, a breezy, but rather impudent little lady had hardly put her books on the table when she said — " Well, I declare. Eloise! What is going to happen? You ' re not at the tele- phone, — not reading a letter, — and here it is nearly six-thirty and you are really in your room! What ' s the matter? You haven ' t a vacant period tonight, have you? " " Time will tell — so you had better wait for further developments, " said Eloise as she gave Miss Rawson a knowing wink and started for the corridor. She had just stepped into the doorway when she met Edna Austin, her room-mate, who handed her a letter. " For me? " asked Eloise. " Oh, good! It ' s the fourth letter I ' ve had today! That ' s going some, isn ' t it? " She tore the envelope open and pulled out a single sheet of paper and a look o f surprise came into her face as she read, and then she laughed. " Listen, girls! ' Dearest Eloise: I am horribly lonesome; will you please come home tonight? Yours, Earle. ' Now, what do you think of that! Here I ' ve been going home every week this winter and sometimes oftener 61
