Dudgeon was born on Jan. 3. 1853, at Red Rock, Minnesota, where bis father was serving as a missionary among the Indians and traders of the Northwest. Soon after his birth his parents came to Wisconsin where Mr. Dudgeon was reared and educated. Owing to the fact that his father was an itinerating minister, his progress in school during his early years was frequently interrupted by change of residence and consequent lack of continuity in school work. He entered the preparatory department of the University of Wisconsin in the winter of 1869, the regular course in 1872, and graduated from the ancient classical course in 1876. While in the University he took part in athletics as they were then conducted, and was a member of the Athenaean literary society. He held in turn several offices in this society, including the presidency, and represented this society on several public occasions. After graduation Mr. Dudgeon was principal of the schools of Pewaukee. Wis.. for two years and then spent one year in Madison engaged in business and in reading law. He was admitted to the bar on examination in the spring of 1879. In the fall of 1879 he became principal of the schools at Hudson, Wis., where he remained for eight years. In 1887 he took charge of the Schools at Menomonie, Wis., and came to Madison as superintendent in 1891. While in Menomonie Mr. Dudgeon organized the experimental 10school in manual training and domestic economy which later developed into the Stout Manual Training School. In 1892 he was secretary of the Wisconsin Teachers Association and was elected its president for the succeeding year. For the past .six years he has been 0 member of the Board of Control of the W isconsin Interscholastic Athletic ssociation and has taken part in the management of the track and field meets which have been held annually in Camp Randall, Madison.

From various sources the materials for the history of the class of 1904 have been drawn. Any student of history will agree that the most interesting details are always omitted from records, and that the interesting things are always matters of tradition. The class of 1904 came to do battle in the ancient high school building in 1900. Its greatness, however, did not become known until the second year. It was then that the first organization of a sophomore class of the high school took place. It was in that year that a successful class party was held, to the envy of the dignified upperclassmen. With all the progress and new fangled ideas of the class of 1904, the high school building remained as ancient as ever, and the duties of the venerable teachers in charge were sometimes doubled by watching half a dozen sophomores all trying to throw-notes to the same girl, at the same time. Often the members of the class of 1904, whose success had been unheard of, were forced to remain after four, to hear that the actions of some of its members were not in accord with the principles of government of the school. Despite these friendly councils the class did not cease to succeed, nor to make life a burden to the venerable superiors. It was with the greatest of pleasure on the part of the class that the second year came to an end. The third was hailed with the lofty emotions of making life more of a comfort to elders, and good behavior and strides in advancement have since been the salient characteristics of the clasp. Physics was transported from the basement to the attic in our third year. In faithful accordance with the traditions of the school, it was with inward trepidation, though outward boldness, we followed its flight into unexplored regions. Our fears were unnecessary, at least during the laboratory periods under Mr. Otwell’s supervis- 32ion, periods of relaxation, recreation, and anything but application, when jokes and pretzels were freely passed around, and a general hilarity prevailed. It was in physics class also that Clara Schneider, who had a propensity for remembering every thing she shouldn’t, interrupted Mr. Hutchison in the midst of an interesting account of Rumford’s experiments, to remark that “the count married a widow.” In February of 1903 the high school received a severe blow when its principal was sent over the line to Joliet. A sudden and unlooked for release brought him back unexpectedly to find that during his absence his disciples had fallen into error, and were burning incense to Baal. The high school, while primarily an institution for the cultivation of the highest faculties of the mind, gives scope for the development of business talent and political ability. This fact was well illustrated in the management of our third year party. A newspaper clipping of that time gives a glowing description of the party, its social and financial success, and adds that the money thus cleared was put in the treasury, and not divided among the managers. With the advent of our fourth year comes a season of harrowing persecution at the hands of the teachers in the lower halls. To quote from a great Roman orator, whose acquaintance we made in second year history: “The wild beasts have their dens,” but the gentle members of the fourth year class are without homes or settled habitations. Their teachers do but mock them when they exhort them to study diligently at their own hearths. Many members do but buck and Hunk to advance the renown of their instructors, and then as a reward of their valor, they are forced out of the halls of learning like dumb driven beasts into loathly prison chambers, where in stern durance they await the beginning of the session. “There is a place for every senior, and every senior in his place,” seems to be the motto of the faculty. In the course of our fourth year there has been a notable decrease in numbers. Many reasons have been advanced to account for this, one of which, doubtless, possesses some elements of truth,—that the demand for the services of the members of the class of 1904 has been so eager that would-be employers could not wait until graduation. I have heard, too. a teacher in the science department remark concerning the graduating members of the class, that it is a clear case of “Survival of the Fittest.” It has been a pleasant duty to review the school life of the class of 1904. Memory has mellowed the joys and sorrows tin t were so intense when we first experienced them. All historians must possess to some extent the seer’s outlook into the future. I believe I can see in the things accomplished in the past four years a prelude to greater things in the future. 33JANUARY 29, 1904. Arrangement Committee. Alex Morgan, Chairman.

On a certain clay in the fall of 1901 there was much excitement in a rambling, weather-stained old pile, known to history as the Madison High School, and well there might be, for the famous class of 1905 had come to take its place among the learned. It was a day long to be remembered. Crowded into a little closet designated as the O. M. R., this illustrious class was initiated into the ways of knowledge. Finally, after great and laborious scratching of pens and crumpling of paper, this new' acquisition to the High School was enrolled therein. Thus came the tribe of 1905 to be subject to the mighty chief of the great wigwam, and it has come to be a factor, not a mere name, in the annals of a great school. There is little to say regarding the first year of this tribe, for the great chief saw fit to separate its members that their influence might be spread to the greatest extent. One half pitched camp in the O. M. R. The other half was placed in the great chamber, where they courageously assisted in making the staid sadness of Miss Tul-lis more staid. The second year brought to this thrifty band a vigorous class organization, a dainty pin, a healthy growth, and seats in the great chamber. And these achievements count for much in the M. H. S. wigwam. William Jacobs was honored as the first president, and held that position for one term, when Stella Kayser took the chair for the last two terms. In this year occurred the most noted of sophomore parties, the great strike, and other manifestations of class vigor. This was the era of Ancient History, Caesar, Biology, the Odlandic enunciation and other equally difficult propositions. The tribe emerged from them all triumphant and strong, ready to grapple with anything. And now has come the third year and with it Cicero, physiology, Shakespeare, and physics,—problems which might have taxed the ingenuity of Solomon, Socrates and other wise gentlemen. But under the inspiring guidance of Miss McGovern, Mr. H. and the rest, this class has stabbed and stabbed again successfully. This third year has brought a Kesscnich administration, a class cap proposition, a successful party and its vigorous committee. And here the class history must end until more of the broad water of education has been traversed, when, perhaps, the public may see the annals of a tribe which has successfully completed its educational pursuit. 39 3unior part?

In the fall of 1902 a class entered the Madison High School, the like of which had never been seen before and never will be seen again. When Mr. H. beheld them his face had a new expression, a curious mixture of a frown and a smile. He knew that those high foreheads and large craniums indicated mighty minds and great intellect, but he also knew that those same characteristics were the outward signs of powerful wills, which even he himself could only hope to vanquish through great tact and wonderful diplomacy. The remarkable brilliancy of this class is attributed to the bright sun which •on that warm September day bleached any semblance of green that they possessed. No doubt, also, a good share of green was rubbed •off while they were being pushed about by impolite upperclassmen. Next September, the members of this class were full-fledged Sophomores, and their first duty was to organize. Under the leadership of “Fad” Bernhard, a second grade party was given in November, which proved a great success. A class pin was adopted and later the motto “Lahore et honore.” This motto is very appropriate to the class of 1906, undoubtedly one of the strongest classes that •ever entered the Madison High School. 42SOPHOMORE PARTY COMMITTEE.

It is also the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Madison High School. As the University has grown from a small beginning to be one of the foremost universities of the country, so the High School, started in the basement of the Methodist church with ninety pupils and one teacher, has grown to be one of the largest and best High Schools in the state, with six hundred pupils and twenty-four teachers. The High School was founded in 1854 by Mr. Damon Y. Kilgore, who was authorized by the board of education to rent the basement of the Methodist church (located where the Fair Store now stands). This basement was the only available room in the village that was large enough to accommodate the more advanced pupils. This school was called a High School, but it was in reality only a grammar or intermediate school. In this dark, crowded basement the school was conducted until October, 1856, when it was moved to the Congregational church on Webster street (now owned by the German Presbyterians). There were at that time about one hundred fifty pupils in the school, but the attendance was irregular and progress was thus greatly hindered. In August, 1858. the board purchased for $3,500 the Female Academy, a two-story brick building, situated on the site of the present High School building, which was the building in which the State University was begun. After the building had been repaired and an addition erected the High School moved into the new quarters in the fall of i860, under the guidance of Miss Lucy L. Coues, preceptress. It is interesting to note that at this time the teachers, who were paid in city orders, were cautioned not to dispose of them for less than 85 per cent of their face value. Owing to the financial embarrassment of the board, the High School building was let to Miss Coues for the school year 1861-62, and she there conducted a private school for girls. The following year Prof. Chas. H. Allen, superintendent, conducted a normal training school in the building. But in 1863 the board, getting on its feet once more, reopened the High School, declaring at the same time that “the term High School meant a high grade of grammar school, so classified as to relieve the grammar departments of the several ward schools.” Mr. F. B. Williams, city superintendent, was also chosen principal and in his report of 1863 said: “It was a wise 47thought which induced the board to reopen the High School after so long a period of inactivity. 1 am informed that it was formerly a bright and shining light in the city; but few such lights can withstand the strong gusts which accompany a financial depression. So this light went out." An interesting feature of the re-opened High School was the establishing of a musical fund. An entertainment was given by the pupils which netted $62.75, with which a new harmonium was purchased. When the academy was purchased by the board it was considered a very desirable acquisition, but in 1866 it was reported as “unsightly, badly arranged and wholly unworthy of the city.” And in its report the board stated that it was extremely difficult to maintain a legitimate High School because the normal and preparatory departments of the State University offered greater inducements for the mass of advanced pupils, on account of the higher title of that institution. This was not entirely remedied until 1877 when the High School was placed upon the accredited list. During this year (i860) the average cost of tuition per pupil was $7, as compared with $28.20 for the past year. In 1873 the old portion of the present High School building was erected on the site of the old academy, which had been demolished. Mr. Samuel Shaw was chosen principal. The High School was thoroughly reorganized and two courses of study prescribed; one for those who expected to enter the university, and one for those who did not. In the following year thirty pupils of the High School, both boys and girls, organized the Pierian Literary Society, which held its weekly meetings in the building, and carried out programs consisting of debates and general literary exercises. On July 2, 1875, the first class of fourteen members graduated from the High School. Since then a class has graduated each year until the High School has graduated nearly 1,100 pupils, a large percentage of whom have graduated from or are still attending the State University. The history of the High School since 1873, which date marks the reorganization of the school, has been one of steady growth. In the winter of 1887-88 the addition containing the new main room was finished which, more thandoubled its capacity, but to-day it has grown to such proportions that the present building is not able to accommodate all the pupils, so that the members of the fourth grade come for recitations only. We all look forward eagerly to the time when the proposed High School building will be erected, which will be more than large enough to accommodate comfortably all those who come for instruction. 49LIST OF FORMER PRINCIPALS OF THE OLD HIGH SCHOOL.

Samuel Shaw was born in the southern part of Scotland in 1842. He came to this country when ten years old with his mother and settled at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He was educated in the public schools of that city and later taught school there for several years. After a year of travel in Europe he was county superintendent in Winnebago county from 1867 to 1871. and during the next two years was principal of the Berlin High School. In 1873 he accepted the position of superintendent of the Madison schools and principal of the High School. Mr. Shaw came to Madison in the year the old part of the present High School was built. He thoroughly reorganized the High School, and the first class of fourteen members was graduated in 1875. He resigned in 1884 on account of failing health and became land agent for the Chicago Northwestern Railway Company. He is now a prominent land owner in the northern part of the state and is practicing law in Crandon, which place he has made his home. 5iWILLIAM H. BEACH, A. M. W illiam H. Beach is a native of Seneca Falls, N. V. He was born in 1835 and spent his youth on a farm. Entered Hamilton College in 1857 and graduated in i860 with philosophical honor and the Phi Beta Kappa key. After teaching a few months, in May, 1861, joined the First New York (Lincoln) cavalry, the first volunteer cavalry authorized to be raised, and served until July, 1865. W as first lieu-icnant and adjutant of the regiment. Was principal of the Dubuque High School from 1867 to 1875 and for nine years principal of the Beloit High School. In 1880 he was president of the Wisconsin State Teachers’ Association. In 1884 he was elected principal of the High School and superintendent of the schools of Madison. In 1891 he accepted an appointment as head of the department of history and civics in the Milwaukee High School. At the request of his war comrades he has written a history of his regiment, and was selected to edit Volume TI of W ar Papers, lie has written much in the line of book reviews and contributions to educational and historical publications. He is a member of the State Historical Society and of the American Historical Association. 52 __k .WEBSTER M. POND W as born at Rutland, Dane county, Wisconsin, in 18-19. He was educated in county schools and at eighteen began teaching in a country school. When twenty-three years old he entered the preparatory department of the State University and began the struggle of working himself through college, grubbing on the University farm during spare hours at a shilling an hour. During the next summer he studied and made up enough work to enter the sophomore class of 76. While in the sophomore year he was appointed to teach Greek in the High School and in the fall of ’75 was elected vice principal. He therefore dropped his University work but later made it up at home and graduated in ’81. lie held the position of vice principal, with the exception of two years spent in Nebraska, during which time Miss Street was vice principal, until 1888, when he was appointed principal. He resigned in '89 and with Miss Charlotte Richmond founded and built up the Wisconsin Academy. In 1891, owing to ill health, he was obliged to give up teaching and moved to Rockford, Illinois, to seek health in out of door life. 53HELEN D. STREET Prepared for college in llie Racine High School and at Carroll College in Waukesha. She graduated from the ancient classical course at the University of Wisconsin in 1876. and received the degree of A. M. in 1879. She taught in the LaCrosse High School the first year after graduation, and came to Madison in the fall of 1877 as assistant. At that time the city superintendent was also principal and the vice principal had direct control of the High School. W hen Mr. Pond, who was then vice principal, left, Miss Street was given the position of vice principal. In 1883-84 she took Professor Heritage's work in the University in Latin, while.he went abroad. Since 1896 she has been teaching Latin and Greek at the Lewis Institute at Chicago 54J. E. MacEWAN. % Mr. J. E. MacEwan is a native of Michigan, lie was educated in the public schools and the Michigan State Normal College. In ’75 he graduated from Kalamazoo college and in ’85 and '86 was a fellow in English at Johns Hopkins. After acting as principal of the Kalamazoo High School for a number of years, he accepted the position as professor of English and modern languages in the Michigan Agricultural College. 79 to ’89. For two years, 89 to ’91. he was principal of the Madison High School and after leaving here spent a year in Berlin. From ’92 to 02 he was professor of English literature and German in Utah State University, and since 02 he has been professor of English at his Alma Mater, Kalamazoo College. In ’92 Mr. MacEwan was elected president of Rhode Island State University, but declined the office. He has done some translating, has written a number of books on English and still writes for newspapers and educational journals. 55% THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. The first meeting of the Madison High School Alumni Association was held in the Assembly Chamber of the capitol, June 15, 1900, immediately after the graduating exercises. The meeting was called to order by Horatio Winslow, 00, and the following officers were elected: Kate M. Corscot, ’93, president; Wm. E. Smith, ‘98, vice president; Elizabeth Veerhusen, ’87, secretary, and Morris Fox, ’00, treasurer, who were empowered to frame a constitution. 'fhe object of the association is to strengthen and perpetuate the bonds of friendship and to promote and further the interests of the High School. Although the interest manifested in the association has had a steady and substantial growth, it has been due to the tireless efforts of its various officers, who look forward to the day when the Madison High School Alumni Association shall exist not only in name but by the services rendered its Alma Mater and the loyal spirit evident among its members. The meetings of the association are held annually after commencement; at which time officers for the ensuing year are elected and all other business which may come before the meeting is transacted. Mrs. C. H. Harrison, ’8i, served as the second president and 56was succeeded by C. Rex Welton, ’01. The present officers are: Chas. F. Lamb, '75, president; Mrs. Chas. F. Abbott, 76, vice president; Miss Margaret Forcn, ’86, secretary, and John Corscot, Jr., ’00, treasurer. The association has held three annual banquets, the first of which was held June 15, 1901, at which about one hundred and seventy-live alumni gathered about the festive board and listened to the following toasts, Miss Kate M.

For several years past the Madison High School has failed almost uniformly to take and to hold its legitimate place of leadership in the athletics of Wisconsin High Schools. Ranking second in the state in the number of pupils, Madison yet cannot claim to hold precedence over many comparatively smaller high schools of the state. The football team of the fall of 1902 alone has lived up to the splendid reputation which Madison High enjoyed in years gone by, and all other athletic teams of recent years have either failed altogether to materialise or have had to succumb to decisive defeats. To many these words may seem to be a severe arraignment, and yet all will acknowledge that things have not been what they should be in our athletics. The time has now come when this deplorable state of affairs must be looked into with a view to determine the causes of our failures and to remedy them. Are the students at fault, or are there other influences and conditions which bring us such unhappy results? What do we need and what must we do to build up again the athletics of the school, and to place Madison where it belongs,— at the top? To one in the position of instructor the situation will naturally be looked at with a somewhat critical eye and this short article will therefore be in the nature of a criticism,—a criticism which has back of it, nevertheless, the welfare of the school. In the first place, we have missed by a large margin a true high school spirit in our athletics. I mean a spirit which places loyalty to the school above personal considerations; which will make one willing to work hard and to sacrifice much just to bring home victory to Madison High. What is it in other high schools that prompts the bovs to dig and dig in their studies in order to keep above the disqualifying mark, to train hard and long and faithfully, and then to go into a contest with a spirit of determination and of enthusiasm that carries all before it? Why is it that in this High School the boys with athletic ability so often fail in their work? Why is it that there is not here, as in other schools, a general spirit in the student body that will absolutely compel a delinquent to keep up his average not only for his own sake but for the good of the school to which he should in all manliness give his very best? Why is there not in us a spirit of loyalty so strong that it will reach those who ought and who can win honors for us in athletics? This spirit we have not and the creation 58of it involves every one of our six hundred pupils. There must be a common interest and a united effort and then vve may expect our future athletic success to begin where it must begin,—in the recitation room. We all know that the day of “ringers” is past. The present demands clean athletics. It will have bona fide high school students, or none at all. School athletics are now on a higher plane than ever before and we must realize that good athletics must begin with good work in recitations. Why cannot our boys understand this fact and keep it in mind always? The efforts of our superintendent and principal have of late years been in the direction of keeping Madison within the spirit and rule of the Interscholastic Association, and when each individual aspirant for athletic honors gets into line with the new order of things, then all the splendid material in the school can be brought into service and victories will be ours. Other high schools have long since come to understand the new needs and that is why they have left us behind. One other suggestion follows closely along the same line. Might it not be well to cultivate a High School patriotism so strong that the personal side of things could never play a part in our athletics? We have all seen during the past year or two evidences of personal feelings and differences that produced only discord where all should have been harmony. There has been a lack of fellow-feeling among some of the students. Some have refused to sink their own views and desires before what should have been the paramount interests of the school. There has been also, on the part of a few, an ever ready spirit of criticism and of antagonism, even toward those immediately in charge of affairs. Have all of these things been productive of any good? Or do we “only reap from the seeds we have sown a harvest of barren regrets?” Let us not be too particular about little things which count for nothing. Let us not place our own selfish interests above the common welfare. Let us have more respect for authority and allow it to guide us. Let us in the future stand together and work together. Unless we do, we shall accomplish nothing. If these words are too severe in their criticism, do not take them too seriously. Nevertheless, think them over and perhaps you will find in them something which you need and which the school needs. Remember, too, that they are written by one who is after all deeply and sincerely interested in the future welfare of the Madison High School. One of the Faculty. 59THE NEW HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING. (R. B. Dudgeon.) It has been the purpose of the Board of Education to construct a new high school building which will accommodate about 1,000 pupils. It has been the constant thought that the new building should be substantial in construction, plain in finish, and simple and restrained in architectural character. The new building will show a radical departure from the old building in its provisions for taking care of pupils during the study periods. Instead of large study rooms, small class rooms will be provided in which pupils will be accommodated during the study periods. Each class room will scat from 50 to 60 pupils who will be under the general care of one teacher. These pupils will be divided into two sections or divisions. For the recitation period one division will be sent to the recitation room while the other will remain in the class room and recite to the teacher in charge. In some cases it may be arranged so that the teachers may pass from room to room to meet their classes. It may be found best at times to have one division remain in the class room to study while the second division is reciting in the same room. This may at first seem a little inconvenient and cause some annoyance, but pupils and teachers will soon become accustomed to this plan and the work of both divisions will proceed with the same attention and application as attends the work in the elementary grade room where the pupils are usually divided into two sections for study and recitation purposes. The new .building will contain a large assembly room which will accommodate the whole number of pupils for morning exercises, lectures, entertainments, and all kinds of general meetings. The fre-cjuent assembling of the whole body of pupils in one room has a tendency to unity of class interests, encourages a good school spirit, and adds strength and character to the pupil body. 60The gymnasium with an ample equipment of apparatus, and with all necessary dressing rooms and bathing appliances, will furnish the means of attaining a higher standard of physical development among the pupils and opportunities for preparatory training for athletic games and contests. It is also hoped that a few rooms may he provided in which different clubs, literary societies, anil other organizations may find inviting and pleasant quarters. Under these conditions the school may he not only a place in which formal school work is done, hut a center from which will radiate many influences which may contribute to goodness of life and to “just and pure and noble living.” In addition to this the new building will furnish all necessary lecture rooms, science laboratories, art rooms, rooms for teachers and officers, and full suites of rooms for commercial instruction, manual training and domestic economy. Such a building will certainly add greatly to the efficiency of the high school and will be a credit to the city and a fitting exponent of the intelligence and culture of the community. Main Room.EARLY SOCIAL LIFE AT M. H. S. High School social life of to-day is markedly contrasted with that of a quarter of a century earlier. The old-time school boy and girl had neither time, money nor desire for the many forms of social life so dear to the average pupil of to-day. Calico gowns, calf-skin shoes, wooden skates, hand-made sleds were common when Mr. B. F. Reynolds, Mr. Samuel Shaw and Mr. Pond made rules for us to test their strength. “Junior Proms ’ “High School Parties,” “Senior Informals” were functions unknown. The “Palace of Sweets” would have died a youthful death for want of use by High School pupils. Senior Banquets were far less elaborate than those of to-day. Yet young people managed to really enjoy school life then. Little house parties were frequent. Sleighing parties to Middleton, ending in dancing and twenty-five-cent supper, were enjoyed as much as a “Junior Prom” is to-day. Square dances, Virginia Reels, Mazurkas, Polkas, gave homely variety to the old-time “dance.” Waltzes and Two-Steps of to-day; flower-embowered band stalls; yellow' arched nooks of Spring-time freshness and beauty, pretty pictures of charming gowns and graceful movements, speak of Madison’s growth in money and culture. Yet a May-day Leap Year Party held in that earlier day, devoid of one of these charming accessories, found the life within making as “healthful music” and every boy and girl present enjoying as only youth and freedom can enjoy. Three-fourths of the students of that day had never seen the inside of an opera house or a railroad car. To-day High School pupils in large numbers attend nearly all the good theatres. School, church, society provide opportunities unknown in that earlier day. The present curriculum of studies is broader and deeper, present opportunities are greater, and good men are interested in comparing results to note corresponding results in character. Young hearts and minds are always “mettle most attractive.” The Board of Education, Madison parents, work patiently and wisely to have young people realize that the dominant note in social life to-day is to help all young people to be be- come more to-morrow than they are to-day. 62THE JAPANESE EDUCATION. Ever since Japan was opened to foreigners much attention has been given to the national education. The present system, which was organized in the year 1868, at the time of revolution, is a combination of various foreign systems. Recently American influence has prevailed, and the system now in vogue is largely patterned after American methods, especially for elementary education. Co-education, however, is not in vogue in Japan except in the lower grades of elementary schools. Female education is specially provided for in the girls’ universities, the peeresses’ schools and several others. The leading desire of the Japanese government in its educational improvement is not to assimilate the whole system of any foreign country, but to mould the best features of different countries into an educational system of its own. In this system the education is gradual and thorough. There are schools provided for pupils of all grades in the universities. Kindergartens or the infants’ schools, which are for children between the ages of three and six, were originally connected with the normal schools. They have since been greatly extended and most of them are now' flourishing on an independent basis. The elementary schools are of two grades, ordinary and higher. In the former the attendance for thirty-two weeks yearly is compulsory upon all children from six to ten years of age. The latter :s an advanced course for children between the ages of ten and fourteen. The system of instruction throughout both grades, ordinary and higher, is the same as in the American grammar schools. The teaching of morals receives more attention than any other subject. During the last four years elementary English is also taught. The middle schools, which are also in two grades, are designed to prepare pupils for practical occupation or for the higher educational institutions. With the exception of an additional year, the ordinary middle school corresponds to an American high school. The qualifications are that the pupils must be more than twelve years old and must have completed the elementary preparatory 63course. The curriculum includes ethics and the foreign languages, English, French and German. Military drill and in some cases elementary navigation are taught as a part of gymnastics. The higher middle school corresponds to the academic department of the American universities. Candidates for admission must he over seventeen and must enter within two years after graduation from one of the ordinary middle schools. They also must bring high testimonials of personal character. Xo students, except with special recommendations, are permitted to enter without passing careful entrance examinations. The course covers three years and takes up Latin, advanced modern languages, dynamics, surveying, philosophy, law, literature and advanced courses in the subjects studied before. There is also a medical department in connection with these schools where an efficient medical education is given. The universities are built largely upon the German model. Candidates for admission must have certificates of graduation from one of the higher middle schools. The course covers from three to five years according to the subject. The departments of the universities are the same as those of the American universities, with the exception that they are more advanced. For agriculture and commerce there are special institutions. The plan followed in the universities is thoroughly German, as regards methods of study and cjualification for degrees, and the discipline is more strict than in any other country. The Japanese student under this system, in fact, is not allowed the individual freedom of the American student. However, although in his experience he may be only a youth, in his work he is a man who would reflect credit on any institution of the world. H. Tanaka. 64Hn flfcemonam Ruth Moulton Robbins, of the class of 1906, who lost her life in the Iroquois holocaust at Chicago, December 30, 1903, was born in Madison, July r, t886. In the fall of 1902 she entered upon her high school course, which was so cruelly and unexpectedly ended by the sad catastrophe which astounded and horrified the world. It is extremely sad to have such an apt pupil, loyal schoolmate and true friend taken from our midst in her early youth. The entire school mourns her death. We yield to the inevitable, humbly bow our heads and say: “Thy will be done!” 65THE GIRL OF NINETEEN-FOUR. Not few the joys, the season brings,— No niggard month is June. Aloft on tree top robin sings, Our paths with flowers are strewn. And yet not these will e’er compare With her who at the door Of life now stands, a vision rare, The Girl of Nineteen-four. Much hast thou wrought, O maid, and well. W ith wearing toil was fraught Sometimes thy task. Ah who can tell What zeal in act and thought Has won to-day’s success? Yet thou No respite didst implore Until the bound was reached. Stay, now, O Maid of Nineteen-four. What lies before thee, none may know. Yet thou mayst feel secure From wheresoe'er the storms may blow, Their blasts thou canst endure. The victories already won Thy faithfulness assure W’hate’er the course that thou shalt run, O Maid of Nineteen-four. Do thou be stanch as in the past, Nor live for self alone. To all that's best in thee, hold fast; The world’s need, make thine own; ’Twill then grant thee its fairest part, Nor ever ask for more Than thy true soul and earnest heart, O Maid of Nineteen-four. —Edward J. Filbev. 6667LITERARY SOCIETY. The Literary Society was organized in 1894 by eight hovs of the high school, whose aim was "to train the mind in parliamentary debate and literary exercises.” During the ten years of its existence it has been a potent factor in promoting the oratorical standard and abilities of all high school students who have been members of the society. By doing this it has been of great assistance to the school in general. The meetings of the society arc held Thursday evenings at 7:30. The literary program usually consists of impromptu speeches, a debate, and a recitation or a number of short stories. As the questions for debate are always the leading ones of the day, the members get a knowledge of the trend of events in the country. It is in these debates that new members first learn the arts of public speaking; it is here that they learn to think quickly and speak logically; it is here that faidts in thought, style and delivery are noticed and corrected. The literary program is followed by the business session, in which strict parliamentary rules are insisted upon. New members are voted in, the program for the following week is announced, and other important business is transacted. The benefits to be derived from being a member of this organization are incalculable. To understand them one must watch the members, to see what part they take in the activities of high school life. It is true that the members are among the most energetic people in the school; it is true that the class officers, in cases where they are 68boys, belong to this organization ; it is true that the salutatorians for commencement day for the past six years have been members of the Literary Society, but these are only a few of the many things of which the society can boast. That this voluntary training of the mind and elocutionary powers is of the greatest benefit has been constantly affirmed by members when they are about to leave the school. Seniors in their farewell addresses have constantly asserted that of all the courses in the high school none has done them more good than the work in the Literary Society. From time to time public entertainments have been given in order that the public may get an idea of the work accomplished. These have all been successful and tell of the good which is done. At the end of each school year a blow-out is held. At these, as at all other gatherings, good fellowship prevails. These gatherings form the pleasantest memories of the alumni, many of whom have distinguished themselves in the world through their oratorical powers. The society has had a successful year and it is hoped that the same will be the case in the future. 1904— Ellis Abbott, Wm. Bollenbeck, Wni.

In 1899 fourteen girls of tire Madison High School Organized a Literary Society, called the Nautilus Club-, This was formed for the purpose of “mutually helping, improving and increasing knowledge of literature and developing critical power." The work was well started under the presidency of Ethel Hatch. During the first few terms only modern authors were studied. Later the club enlivened their programs with recitations, stories, etc., an idea which has been continued up to the present time. During the past year Miss McGovern has added much to the pleasure of the meetings.by giving short, instructive talks each week. She has sketched the life and work of each new author taken up by the club. At the beginning of this year Jessie Smith was elected president; Ruth Van Slyke, vice president; Bessie Coleman, secretary, and Sarah Morgan, treasurer. These officers served so efficiently that the club requested them to continue in office for the following term. They assented with the exception of the secretary, in whose place Kathleen Donovan was elected. For tne last term Edwina Casey was elected president; Irene Vick, vice president; Stella Kavser, secretary, and Kda W ilke, treasurer. The club has great influence on the social as well as the intellectual life of the High School. It has been the custom, the past few years, to hold a banquet sometime during the month of June and also to have an open meeting. The meeting this year was a great success. The excellent program rendered spoke well for the'work of the individual members. An entirely new and unique idea was the tea given by the Nautilus Club in Miss McGovern's room. This was largely attended and the proceeds were given to. the picture fund of the High School. Thus during the past six years the club has faithfully endeavored t j live up to-th e high standard and ideals of the founders. 7172THE ART CLUB. 'I ;••• Art Club was organized three years ago for the purpose of enabling pupils beyond their first year to keep in touch with the study of artists and to continue their drawing. The first year meetings were held at the homes of different members. Later, however, it was found more convenient to make use of the high school studio. The dues of ten cents a month were first used to buy the picture which now hangs on the front wall of the New Main Room—that of the Sistine Madonna. Those of the last two years are to be used for pictures in the studio of the new High School. During the first part of the year, while the club was studying Corot, the members replied to the roll-call by names of his most noted pictures. Then, when it changed its study, they answered by names of American artists. The roll-call has been varied now and then by names of illustrators of modern magazines. It was unanimously voted last fall to study American artists, thus keeping in contact with the art world of the present time. 73The drawing has been from poses. During the last term many of the poses have been ones suggesting headings for the Annual. This year there has been more co-operation between the Annual Board and Art Club than ever before. The members of the board have ' club suggestions as to their I i .o he same as in former years. The officers art folio,vs President l-aura Johnson. Vic .

Basket-ball was started bv an associ-ation of girls in the fall of 1902. The top story of the city hall was changed into a basket-ball court, all expenses being paid by the girls. Each class organized a team, and in the spring a series of match games was played in which the seniors won the championship. This year the association was again organized, and practice was carried on in the same place. A schedule of inter-class games was drawn up, but as some of the players were indisposed, all of these games were not played. Officers 1903-04. President, Audrey Davenport.

While the record made by the Madison High School football team last season cannot be termed brilliant in the least, the memory of days when Madison was supreme in the strenuous sport, not only in Wisconsin, but in the whole United States, is a pleasant consolation. It is not, however, the purpose of this story to boast of our past triumphs, but rather to present some account of our best players. The stars of the “96 ’ and “97" teams were every bit as well known throughout the city as the common council. But, alas, since they have received their last cheer from the side lines and laid aside the jersey, most of them have fallen into almost as deep obscurity as the dignified city fathers of those days. Arthur H. Curtis. “Art” Curtis earned his position on the High School team in his freshman year, 1894, and played his four years as a regular. In the University his success was even greater, for he not only made the team, in the technical phrase, his first year and held his position during his entire college course, but was elected captain of the 1901 team. Even by the prejudiced eastern critic, Casper Whitney, he was twice chosen as first substitute, left tackle, on the “All-American,” while several times he was placed in that position on the “All-Western.” Mr. Curtis, since graduating from college, coached the Kansas University one year, and last year was elected as the first graduate coach of Wisconsin, a position which he now holds. Earl Schreiber. Next to Arthur Curtis stands Earl Schreiber. “Schribe,” as the boys call him, played on the big High School teams from 1896 to 1899. He was a powerful and almost irresistible line player, lightning quick as a dodger in the open and a kicker of great skill. On entering the U. W. his aptitude on the gridiron was soon realized; for he at once became a member of the team. During his second year he was ruled out of college sports as a professional. The fact that he has worked constantly in the University since that time, last year convinced the Western Athletic Council that Mr. Schreiber was not at heart a professional, and they exonerated him from the charge. 78Shelby Davis. The name of Shelby Davis cannot be passed over in such an article as this. He was a young man of superb physique, with broad shoulders, full chest and muscles like a giant. In his position, ‘'center rush,” he has never been equaled in any Madison team. He played a game, manly, strong, clean ; other than this, it was not in him to play. His premature death in 1897 moved with true sorrow every student and every teacher in the High School. George Anderson. George Anderson, half-back of the ’96 team, will be remembered as the first person to kick a field goal in Madison. He gained this distinction in a game with Central High School, Minneapolis, when he made a clean thirty yard drop kick over goal. It is sad to record that he fell a victim to consumption. Harry Bradley. Madison may well be proud of Harry Bradley. He is in the same class with Curtis and Schreiber, having played with them on the High School team of 1896. He also played on the University football team. As quarter-back on Wisconsin in 1898 he made a most creditable record. Heavy, strong and well proportioned, he was quick and clever. Of the others Dean and Dunkle distinguished themselves on the Physicians and Surgeons team of Chicago, while Berryman and Con-lin were substitutes on the Wisconsin team. Matthew Conlin was assistant coach of Kansas in 1901 and last year coached the championship Eau Claire High School team. Cecil Schreiber last year was substitute quarter-back on the U. W. ODE TO MADISON HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM OF 1903. 1 (Blank Verse.)THE NEW M. H. S. ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. During the fall term of 1903 athletics in the High School were placed on a new and firmer basis. The old athletic association was abolished and a new one started in its place. The old athletic association was composed of all the boys in the High School. But ‘‘too many cooks spoil the broth.” This was found to be especially true in this case, as those boys who had the interests of athletics at heart were unable to transact any business at the meetings on account of the majority of “rough house" members always there. For that reason several boys, together with Mr. Morton, the manager of athletics, obtained permission and promptly started a new association. Mr. Morton was elected president and Albert Bagley secretary of this new organization. In the constitution which was drawn up provision was made for the election of members, two votes being required to blackball a man. The association was thus made much more conservative than formerly. The membership list gradually increased by the addition of those who were athletes themselves, and those who took an interest in athletics. But the amount of time consumed by voting in new members left no time for other important business. An amendment to the constitution was therefore passed, by which any boy in the school, who was up in his studies, could become a member on payment of a fee of twenty-five cents. As the association was some seventy dollars in debt, a benefit en- ¥ tertainment was given at the city hall, and a semi-public was given by the Literary Society. These two entertainments netted about forty dollars to the association. The formation of a new athletic association certainly has been a success this year, and we hope that it will be a lasting benefit to athletics. NINTH INTERSCHOLASTIC FIELD MEET.

But best of all she has brought before our eyes again, from under its mantle of snow and sleet, the old wooden sidewalk, over which we and our ancestors for many generations have plodded our weary way to school. It grows more picturesque as the years go by, and one feels that there is some special affinity between it and the antique structure it surrounds. Yet old as it is, this sidewalk still has a future. Mother Shipton has propheisied that in the year nineteen hundred fifty-one, half of the students of Madison will meet with sudden and terrible deaths while crossing from Carroll street to Wisconsin avenue. The remaining sorrowful students will forsake the hall of learning and spend their lives in mourning for their unfortunate comrades. •89PILGRIMS’ PROGRESS. I. Four little Freshmen, Scared as they can be; One flunked in Latin, And then there were three. II. Three little Sophomores, Smartest things in view; One fired for rough-house And then there were two. III. 'Two little Juniors, Bucked away like fun; One had brain-fever, And then there was one. IV. One little Senior, Thought she was so many; She got her sheepskin, And then there weren’t any. 90A PROM DEAL. “Bill.” ‘‘Bill, wake up!” The voice came from a group of four boys who were comfortably sprawled on Tom's veranda steps, enjoying the first March sunshine. “Bill, oh, Bill!” An inarticulate murmur came from behind the newspaper, and presently Bill's face appeared. “Say, who you going to ask to the Prom?” The other two boys stopped talking to hear his reply. “How do you know I haven’t asked her already?'' said Bill mysteriously. Jack kicked the step impatiently. “O, I don’t care about knowing, only you’re considered the best dancer, so the rest of us won't stand any show after you.” ‘Tin going to ask Teddy.” “No, I am!” chorused the other three, in alarm. For a moment they looked at each other in astonishment, then fairly shouted, doubling up and punching each other in their mirth. It was such a good joke. ‘‘Stub, you’re out of it; red hair and yellow don’t go well,” said artistic Thomas, looking significantly at that young gentleman’s carrot-colored locks. “Anytime!" roared Stub, but happily Jack interrupted with : “Don’t get huffy, fellows, I intend to ask Ted myself.” “You can’t!" Bill cried. “She won’t go with a fellow that smokes!” Jack threw his cigarette into the grass. “I’ll swear off.” “You’ve tried that stunt too often, my son. No. I see where Little Willy takes Ted to the Prom.” “No, we’ll all ask her, and see who wins out.” “The first one, of course!” was the scornful reply. “Then here’s to be first!” and Stub left on the run. The other three.entering into the spirit of the thing, rose and started off. Jack towards the high school, Tom went down town and Bill slowly followed in the direction Stub had taken. “Is every body crazy?” Ted demanded, as she opened the door of her chum’s den. “Let us hope not.” was the smiling reply. “Still, at second glance, one might think—” Oi“O, do be sensible, Polly, dear, and let me tell you!” Ted began, throwing down her books and straightening her hat. ‘Tm sure its a joke. Listen! Just as Beth and I were coming out of the Pal we met Tom. He handed me a note, and told me to read it as soon as possible, as it was very important. Well, I did, and it was a bid to the Prom. I had just finished reading it,—in the library,—when Jack came up, and while Beth was getting a book, casually asked me if 1 had a date for the junior party! I was quite stunned, but nearly fainted when Stub caught up with me, after I left Beth, and asked me to the same party! And just now I had a ’phone from Bill! Now, isn't that the worst thing you ever heard of?” “Which arc you going to accept?" “O, none. Robert Allen, a Chicago boy, asked me last November.” “The lucky fellow,” said Stub, “treats the crowd!” There was a dead silence and the four frowned sternly at each other. For a moment there was blank astonishment. Then a gleam of comprehension. “We’ve all been turned down,” Tom said, and the four groaned. Then they laughed, at least, all but Bill. He looked disgusted. “Some fool of a ’Varsity fellow,” he muttered. “Who wants to take anybody, anyway? I’m going to stag.” Mr. Sy — t — stad, translating: “They plowed the foaming brine with their bronze brows.” Miss Le — ry, translating: “Fs ist so hell droben.” “It is so hot up there.” “Over hill, over dale, Through brush, through brier. Over tub, over pail, In my class, under fire, I’m flunking everywhere. Far too swift for good, I fear ; And I serve A. B., the Queen, With her orbs so bright and green, The tongue slips bold, her helpers be, In our standings spots you see; Those be flunk-marks, A. B.’s favors, And they stand for poor behaviors, I must go learn some verb-forms here, . And spout a tense into her Highness’ ear.” —Alumnus. 92She High School has been named the John Morris School by the Hoard of Education. Mr. Maurer: What was the congress called that they held, Miss H — d? Pupil—The Congregational Congress. “Miss----, allow me to introduce you to Miss Murphy, our an- cient history teacher.” Miss Murphy—“I think you might leave off the ancient.” Student translating “Der Stuhl ist Elfenbein” (ivory): “The chair is eleven-legged.” Miss McGovern: “Who were the conquered Amazon tribes?” Mr. Sachtzen : “Why, they were a band of ladies.” Prof. Hutchison: “Mr. Kentzler, what is ether?” Mr. Kentzler: “Ether is next to nothing.” Prof. Hutchison : “Well, that statement of yours is next to nothing. A GREAT TASK. Miss Winden, giving a topic in history: “While thus engaged Hamilton finally found time to fall in love.” 93THE CLASS THEY BELONGED TO. Miss A. B. M. (in Cicero) : “To what class of murderers do ‘sicar-iorum’ belong?’' Miss Roybar: “Assassins.” Mr. Boyd: “Slabbers!” Miss A. B. M.: “Then you all belong to that class." In Physics Class. Mr. Morton: “What is force?” Mr. Nelson: “Force is a breakfast food made of flaked saw-dust.” Mr. Syftestad, translating: “The best man” (instead of the good man). Miss A. B. M. (interrupting him) : “I didn’t know we were attending a wedding.” How Iron Was Discovered. Mr. Morton: “How was iron discovered?” Pete P — e------e: “Pa says they smelt it.” The Reason They Did It. Miss Si — b — r — a — el (discussing the reform movement in Henry VI reign): “They whitewashed the walls and beautiful paintings in the Catholic churches.” Miss C.: “Why did they do that?” Miss S.: “To keep the people from rubbering around.” A Bright Junior. Junior: “Why is a slippery walk like a quiz in physics?” Soph.: “Don’t know.” Junior: “Because a good many fall down.” Old King Coal Is a merry old soul, But a merrier soul he’d be If he'd crack a smile Once in a while, And let us go off on a spree. 945 )OKS!

The lake shore was beautiful: so was the girl. The sand was white; so was the girl’s shirtwaist suit. The sky was blue: so were her eyes. The little waves laughed softly; the girl laughed too. The sea whispered to the shore; the man talked softly to the girl. His hand stole to hers; a crab crept carefully toward her dress. The wind sighed through the trees; the girl sighed bewitchingly. There was a moment of suspense, of silence, of anticipation; then a scream, and— “Oh! Did you see that horrid crab?” A DANGER SIGNAL. The class assembles in the room With sober faces on, Miss Murphy enters with a smile, They answer with a groan. Her smile,—they know it all too well; They long ago have found. That signal means a quiz. And then She hands the papers ’round. THE WAIL OF A SOPHOMORE. Flunk! flunk! flunk! at the foot of my class, said he, But I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me. Ah. well for the freshman lad. As he sits there with nothing to do! Ah! well for the juniors and seniors, I see where they’ll soon be through! But I have three years still before me, And more if I fail very much. Oh! how these old flunk cards do bore me! And I haven’t my lesson in Dutch. A Pull. 98IDLE THOUGHTS DURING IDLE HOURS. “When I get big I am going to be like pa. It must be lots of fun spanking youngsters.' —Maurice Pierce. “Indeed, when I go to dances I only have the first and last with my partner. It is too monotonous speaking to the same fellow all the evening."—Elsie Dillon. “I can never get enough to eat between meals. Guess I'll be a bar-keeper, then 1 can always be near the lunch table."—Harry McKenna. “When I get married I’ll make our home a most charming one. My husband will have to stay at home every evening. O, ’it’ll be pleasant!”—Grace Winden. “Experience, as bitter as it is, does one good. I knocked a hole in a soph’s hat with a snow ball last winter, and he gave me such a walloping that I'll never forget it.”—Henry Bernard. “Gee, but it’s a snap to butt in and ask a girl when you know that another fellow intends to take her. The fellows said they’d take it out of my hide, but I don’t care.”—Ed. Fisher. CURRENT LITERATURE OF M. H. S. Ladies’ Home Journal The Critic ......... The Outlook ........ Once a Week.........

I’m tired of bucking alone, I want a bright friend, not some drone, Some one to assist me, Some one who will boost me, I'm tired of bucking alone. “Now let the smartest man arise And tell us all he knows.” “Here I am,” a quick voice cries. ’Twas Biggies that arose. BELOW THE SURFACE. A well-informed Freshman (in physical geography) : “There is practically no warmth in the moon’s light. The moonlight is very delightful, but the warmth, if there is any, must be, and is generally, supplied from another source.” Some of the other members of the class must have understood for there was a lot of giggling in the back of the room. BORROWING AS IT IS DONE AT M. H. S. Freshman: “Say, got a cent?” Sophomore: “Hello Charlie, just let me take a sou until tomorrow.” Junior: “Well, old man. I’m glad to see you, where have you been all this time? (wringing the victim’s hand) Say, haven’t you a dollar or two around in your pockets? I will do the same for you some time.” Senior: “Good morning, I’m glad to see you. Yes, I’m feeling well. Oh, say. isn’t this luck? Dad’s going to give me twenty-five dollars if I get through all right this year. You want to be around and help use it. Old man, haven’t you a fiver you can lend me until school lets out. I'm sure to pay up this time, you know.” IOIMORTON’S SOLILOQUY. I stand in the hall at recess, As the bell rings out the hour; When the students come from the class-rooms, From out of the teachers' power. I see in that crowd of students Who people the hall below: Many familiar faces Passing to and fro. Among the many who stand there, I see Miss Oakley’s face, As she stands at the foot of the stairway, In her old accustomed place. And ever by her side there, . Dear Win. Jacobs is seen: There, too, is Archie Wellman. And Albert and Walter between. F. Smith and Win. Bollcnbeck; E. Abbott by the door: “Weary” Conlin and Otto Breitenbach, All rise my vision before. How often, oh, how often. Have I wished that the surging throng, Would draw them into its current, And sweep them resistless along. For they make me very weary; I am tired of seeing them there: And the burden they lay upon me Seems greater than I can bear. And I say: “Report to the office!" But they’re back again next day: And thus it will be forever, While I stand in that old hall-way. For forever and forever. The procession shall come and go; Of Freshmen, green and lively, Of Seniors subdued and slow. And forever and forever, Within M. H. S.’s walls, Will I be defied by idle groups, Who are lingering round the halls. —E. W. Nebel. 102MEMBERS OF THE FACULTY AND THEIR FAVORITE PLAYS.

C.: Xo, Jim, we think there are two places where a bright, red sweater of the shade you describe is out of place—on the scaffold and in church. Otherwise it must be very taking with your black hair. S. M.: W hile the style of wearing one curl over the right shoulder is still in vogue, still we would suggest that you wear one over each shoulder, as the latest notes from Parisian hair-dressers give this coiffure. M. P.: T see no reason why you should not give a little entertainment of the kind that you write of. If your voice is as good as you describe, it ought to be a great success. I would suggest as a program: “Just Break the News to Mother," “Hiawatha “After the Ball" and any other popular songs you are familiar with. A. M. B.: We enjoyed your letter very much. W’e judge from it that you love your teacher and enjoy your lessons. That is right, Albert, do your duty, even if it does prevent your attending parties, etc. We should be pleased to hear from you again. Anne: If you are too thin we would recommend taking long drives in pleasant company, giving up dancing and the “Pal ’ and keeping early hours. There is no charge for advice in these columns. A SENIOR’S ADVICE TO FRESHMEN. If Miss Moseley says that she is going to stop teaching some day. don’t believe her. If your teacher tells you that you ought to get an ex instead of a poor, don’t let your head swell too much, for she tells that to every fool. The only road to fame is through the office. If you want to learn the true art of roughhousing, join the literary society. If you want to learn how to make money, join the Nautilus club. If you want a snap, get on the Annual board. Yes! Don’t try to keep Miss Oakley supplied with cookies and candy. It is impossible. If you want to be a politician, consult W — It — r NT — b — 1. Always look on your studies with pleasure, the old high school building with tears, and Mr. H. when he isn’t looking. 107M. H. S. WANT COLUMN. WANTED.

EXTRACTS FROM MR. MAURER’S DIARY. Sept. 30, 1903: Pretty successful day. Three or four senior girls came in and jollied me this morning. Pretty fine girls in Madison High School. Think I’ll let them all through. Mr. Dudgeon asked me not to talk to the girls in the hall to-day. Quite agreeable to have so many girls have crushes on one. May 1, 1904: Rather lonesome to-day. My room was deserted except for classes. I wonder what has become of the girls. They don’t come around any more. I’m just as handsome as ever, too, and only flunked one girl last month. It’s hard lines. Guess I’ll answer that Ad. I saw yesterday on “How to be Popular.’’ I am glad vacation is nearly here. Think I’ll have t er flirta- tion” this year. noNEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS.

New High School, Long waited for, dear friend, Your journey has been a long one But now you are nearing its end. We have grown old and hoary, In waiting, in longing for thee: But soon looming up in the distance Your welcome face we shall see. Long have we read of your wonders, Your labs, and gyms, and halls, Your assembly room and office. Where many will answer calls. When you arrive, you will free us From our burdensome load of care; For we cannot attempt to tell you How wretchedly here we fare. No more will the freshies tumble, And fall down the rickety stair; No more will the sophomores gasp and choke For a breath, for a mite of fresh air. Nor more will the juniors be huddled Five or six on a single seat; No more will the old floors tremble When the seniors scuffle their feet. For repairs the blessed old School Board Will need no more money to spend, For surely then John will never Have broken-down seats to mend. Then hail to thee! New High School, We arc patiently waiting, dear friend, For we know that together with you Our happiest hours we shall spend. 112TO THE TUNE OF COSEY CORNER. O, I bucked last night, dear mother. And I bucked the night before, If I ever get stupid, dear mother, I guess I'll just buck some more. With a towel around my forehead, As I con my lessons o’er, If I ever get flunked, dear mother, I guess I’ll just buck some more. A Promising Freshman. POPULAR SONGS. Illustrated.

(Abridged, revised and Madisonized. With apologies to Eugene Field.) The old high school is filled with dust, But sturdy and staunch it stands; The pupils’ faces are filled with disgust, And their school books rot in their hands. Time was when this dusty old school was new. And the teachers were passing fair: And that was the time when workmen few, Built it, and placed it there. "Xow that’ll stay for a time,” they said, “It won’t need repairs for a while." So packing up slowly each bag of tools, They turned away with a smile. And we wonder, as waiting our four years through, In the dust of each little chair, What has become of those workmen few, Since they built it and placed it there.FIVE MINUTES IN A HISTORY CLASS. “Mr. Barclay, please tell us about the trouble the king and the pope had ’ “The king and the pope had a scrap, and it was a knock-out blow to the pope when he saw that he couldn’t get nothin’ out of the king. Then he put up an awful bluff, and it worked—about some kind of a grant or something." “Very good. Mr. Barclay, only (sweetly) couldn’t you use fewer expressions which are in poor English?" Mr. Barclay thinks he could. “Now, Mr. Jacobs." Bill arises with the aid of the desk and then clinging for dear life to his own desk and to any other within reach, smiles engagingly at the class and the teacher. “Now, Mr. Jacobs, you may go on and tell us about this grant." “Well, a—ahem—I didn’t understand the last part of the lesson very well." Arc all with thee, are all with thee. Thou too sail on. O grand old book! We know full well the pains we’ve took; We know what pens have scratch'd thy lays, And those who worked for days and days; And what hard work and how much time, It took to write the smallest rhyme. Sail on! sail on! Thou hast our tears, Alas, thou hast our greatest fears; For if the plunkcrs roll not in, The managers will lose their tin. Sail on ! sail on ! Thou hast our fears ; Our prayers, our hopes, and oft our tears, T f ROLL OF HONOR M. H. S. For: Never having Flunked—Wilber Replinger. Never having Smoked—Bill Dugane.

S. football team in such “fine” condition last year? Ans.—Because there are two or more “Trainors” in the M. H. S. Why are these conundrums rather misty?

When the Annual’s last picture is printed, And the letters all smeared on, and read, And the soft balmy breezes have hinted.

And those who got through shall be happy, And those who got flunked shall not care, They shall go from this burg on a journey, Or camp in the greenwood fair. They shall lie on the lawn in hammocks, Where the breeze is soft and cool, They shall bask in the shade of the tree-tops, Not in that of the old high school. 123oKEELEY’S PALACE OF SWEETS 112 STATE.
