ASHMORE, Physical Director Two years of Physical Culture are required of all men in the Academy as one of the requirements for graduation. College men are required to take the work in the freshman and sophomore years. The men are divided into classes with regard to their ability. The number in each class is restricted in order to give each man as much personal attention as is possible. This plan makes more classes, but enables the director to suggest the particular exer- cises best suited to the individual as a corrective agency for de- fects, such as round shoulders, curvatures, undeveloped parts, etc. The Cass as a whole is given dumb-bell and Indian-club drills, marching, calisthenics, individual and combination tumb- ling, apparatus work, pyramid building and indoor games. The fundamental object of the work is to develop strong healthy men. More stress is laid upon strengthening the vital organs than on developing exterior muscle for show. If we would develop our bodies so as to possess health, strength and agility, we must use a system of exercises that produces these results: namely, a course of light and heavy work arranged ac- cording to our temperament and physical needs. By teaching the student how, when and the amount to exer- cise early in his college course, it is hoped h° will use the know- ledge to keep himself fit physically for his college work, even after he has completed the actual requirement of two years ' work and will continue to use the gymnasium through, his junior and senior years. A diversified plan of exercise such as outlined here should lead each man to choose some one thing suited to his taste and needs, and the department would be pleased to see each student make some form of exercise his " hobby, " to be taken with him along with his sheep skin. It well needs be a " hobby. " else it will be neglected when business matters press. The Physical Department has some distinctive features found in no other department of the university in that its courses are all required courses and are sure to do the student some good with or without his consent. Final demonstrations are used rather than final examinations. " The Powers that be. " — Faculty. 20 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK Ki)t Retool of (Engineering THE great pyramids of Egypt and the temples on the Nile are evidences that the profession of Engineering existed long before the Christian era. The Greeks and Romans constructed marvelous roads, bridges, aqueducts and various me- chanical structures that are even yet the admiration of the world. The ruins left by the Incas in South America and by the Aztecs in Mexico, are evidences of the work of engineers years before Columbus discovered America. President Hadley of Yale, at the dedication of a new Engineering Building in New York City, said, " The men who did more than anything else to make the Nineteenth Century different from the other centuries that went before it were its engineers. Down to the close of the eighteenth century the thinking of the country was dominated by its theologians, its jurists, and its physicians. These were by tradition the learned professions. It was reserved for the nineteenth century to recognize the dominance of abstract thought in a new field — the held of constructive effort — and to revere the trained scientific expert for what he had done in these lines. " Enthusiasm and de- votion to his work, and in after years, to his profession, is char- acteristic of the engineering student. Without this devotion no man can rise, but will remain a hewer of wood and a drawer of water. What engineer does not feel the pride in his profession grow as he rushes through the great tunnels under mountain or river ; as he watches the great ocean vessels sweep out to sea ; as he sees the giant steam locomotives or mysterious electric motors hauling long heavily loaded trains with ever increasing speed, or as he observes some intricate machine performing its task with more than human accuracy 1 The world is still full of unsolved problems in the engineer- ing field and the engineers, the men skilled in the application of science, are to solve them. They are the men who are to make the deserts blossom as the rose, develop the great wealth mines and forest, and harness the forces of nature to the chariot of civilization. There is a dignity and intrinsic worth in know- ledge and skill that is directlv useful, and the disciplinary and cultural value of useful applied science should not be under- estimated. To the school of Engineering is assigned the development of its students in the fundamental theory and practice of the Civil, Mechanical, and Electrical branches of engineering. Its courses are planned with the view of affording, not only the basis of a sound engineering education, but also, for the cultiva- tion of the judgment and executive faculties as well. The first two years all the courses are similar and deal with those subjects which are fundamental to all engineering work. The last two vears of each course, while still retaining many studies in common with the others, are largely given to the studies and laboratory investigations that are essential to each special line of work.

The changes are so radical and extensive as to make the enterprises of a generation or so ago seem primitive in their simplicity, such as any diligent apprentice might master. These elaborate organizations, reas- oned methods, systematized masses of fact, afford data for a course of studies of high educational value. The present clay interest, the practical importance, the wide range of the things to be considered, engage the student ' s earnest attention. The mat- ters set before him are the outcome of keenest thought and com- petitive effort on the part of multitudes of business men, lawyers, scientists, and require for their comprehension acute analysis, wide information, careful comparison, and judgment. At the same time, the demand grows general and insistent that young men be trained in the schools and colleges for business careers, as they have hitherto been trained for the ministry, law, or medicine. The response being made to this demand is a most significant feature of recent educational movement. The James Millikin University is among the leaders, and appears yet to be the only institution offering a four year Academy course, similar to that of the Commercial High Schools established in several laige cities, and a fuil collegiate course in Commerce and Finance, re- quiring for admission as thorough preparation as the School of Arts or of Engineering, and conferring the bachelor ' s degree. The sponsors of this school contend that the cultural purpose of college life and study is not sacrificed by substitution of mod- ern subjects for much that has long had place in college curri- cula. Language, history, science, philosophy, are made essential but not dominant parts of the course. The characteristic studies in economics, accountancy, finance, and law, are not less efficient in giving the student a true and broad outlook upon life. The aim is to intensify the effectiveness of a college course, putting forth graduates possessed of liberal education but also equipped with a kind of knowledge immediately and permanently avail- able in their vocations. The technic of a particular employment and its current de- tails must be learned by apprenticeship, but an understanding of fundamental principles, ability to interpret occurrences, the art of organizing and using facts affecting his business, can be ac- quired only by the college student, so as to qualify him to rise rapidly to positions of responsibility and administrative character.

NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK ft e g cfjool of $etragosp THE School of Pedagogy occupies a co-ordinate position with the other schools of the college. The demand for teachers who) have taken courses in special training for their work grows apace with each succeeding year. The demand is particu- larly strong for teachers who have completed courses in profes- sional training as well as the courses for the college degree. The special courses offered in tins college include elementary psychol- ogy, child-study, methods of teaching, the art of school manage- ment, the philosophy of education, history of education, and theoretical and practical courses in subjects in which the stu- dent is wishing to specialize, as domestic science, modern lan- guage, ancient languages, fine and applied arts, music, manual training, etc. These practical courses include practice teaching, with the usual criticisms and personal suggestions. The value of these courses is well understood by school boards, superintendents of schools, principals of academies, and presidents of colleges. The State Superintendent of Public In- struction recognizes it in his annual circular, and candidates for the state certificate who have received the degree for courses in- cluding professional work will be given the same recognition as graduates of the state institutions of learning, which means that such persons are only required to take successful examinations in English, educational psychology, principles and methods of teaching, and theses on elementary school and secondary school problems, as the particular certificate may require. For a state supervisory certificate the history of education is included, to- gether with a satisfactory thesis on a problem of school admin- istration. A state examination will be held at the James Mil- likin University buildings July 26-29 of this year. It is expected that it will be held annually here in the future. The instructors in the general and special subjects are men and women, not only of fine general education, but of large ex- perience in teaching here and elsewhere. The degree which is offered those taking the four years ' course is that of Bachelor of Science with Pedagogy. The large number of calls for grad- uates who have taken these courses in whole or in part is the best test of the reputation which graduates have already made. From the last graduating class several young men and women went to very desirable positions at fine salaries. ' Of all the rides since the birth of time.

Each department has been supplemented by the usual number of new- volumes thru the annual appropriation for that purpose. In ad- dition to the departments regularly included in the library, two additional departments are now considered as vital to its welfare; the department of Music and that of Bible Study; the PROF. EUGEXIA ALLIN latter being the outcome of the recently e-tabii-h- ed Chair of Bible Study in the regular college curriculum. The books for these have been order- ed this year and form the nucleus of what promise- to be well developed libraries in their line. Up to the present time little has been said of the School of Library Science in our institution. The school was begun when the University was first opened. For the first few years there were few students taking the complete technical course in this line, but a number of students in the other schools took certain of the more cultural studies as electives in their own courses. This proved popular as well as profitable, and. but for the lack of time, would be further encouraged by the school and instructor. Three years ago the course of instruction was entirely rearranged in sequence better adapted to the requirements of the students and has been most satisfactory. The school is progressing materially, both in the number of students and in the more finished w?.} in which the work is being done. All of the students taking the library course at the present time are regularly enrolled for the full four years ' technical course and all of the classes are in a flourishing condi- tion. ' Many can argue, not many converse. " — Mrs. Walker. o 1 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK Retool of Bomestftc Cconomp THE School of Domestic Economy is composed of two de- partments. Domestic Art and Domestic Science. The pur- pose of the School is similar to that of the other schools in the University, educating the student for life. The acquisition of knowledge along certain lines of science, art, and economics, in the course outlined is of value, hut of still greater importance is the ability gained of applying this knowledge to the practical problems of life in home and school. This increases the efficiency of the student in any line of work. Clear, concise thinking is encouraged, and the influence of right living upon the mental, moral, as well as the physical well-being of the individual is emphasized. The discussion of the actual problems of the day, such as the questions that confront the housekeeper, and those that re- late to public hygiene and sanitation, connects the school life with the life of other institutions. Joined with this is the study of certain tendencies to undermine the home life and the highest ideals of society, thus developing the idea of the individual ' s relation to society and its responsibilities. Training for two professions is given. The first is that of home-making, in which the majority of women are engaged. The second, that of teaching the various phases of the subject in the school, is given in a normal course in which practice teaching is required. The equipment in the school is unusually complete. On the first floor of the east wing are the rooms devoted to Domestic Art. Spinning wheels, looms, and all the appliances for giving an insight into the primitive, as well as modern methods of the manufacture of various textiles, are in one room. In another are sewing tables, machines, and equipment for the teaching of all kinds of garment making. On the second floor are the rooms for Domestic Science, equipped for the cooking of foods, serving of meals, home nurs- ing, and the other lines included under the subject. ' Mighty lak ' a Rose.

With two studios at the beginning of the school, it has expanded until at the present time it is in for- tunate possession of three thor- oughly equipped studios for portraiture, drawing and paint- ing in oil and water colors; one fitted with the various ap- pliances for stone mounting, silver and copper work, a pot- tery studio with a large Reve- lation kiln, a keramic studio, a reference room and two private studios for the instructors. The Director of the School and the various instructors are not only specialists in their sev- eral lines, but are doing original work along the different branches of specialization, thus afford- ing stimulation and inspiration to the classes. Practical instruction has been the guiding motive of the School from the start, and a student completing the work includ- ed in the curriculum is competent to teach, or to continue in post- graduate work with the most famous masters of the country with- PROF. VARNUM ' S STUDY out change of method; to do illustrating or to follow one of the crafts. The work of the School of Fine and Applied Arts can be accurately estimated by the standing of its former graduates and students. Two are Super- visors of Drawing in cities of 40,000 inhabitants, another in a city of 10,000; and a cer- tificate student is illustrating for one of the largest firms in a AVestern city, while several are pursuing post-graduate courses in the East, equaling and at times surpassing the majority of students of some of the best art schools of the country. While emphasizing this practical side of Art, the esthetic development is not overlooked and the student is guided to ob- serve the beauties of Nature and Art, as the appreciation of these beauties cannot be neglected from the most general education. These lectures on Esthetics, and Art Appreciation and History are given on Saturday so as to be available to teachers of the public schools as well as the public. " I fear no power a woman wields.

With an enrollment of more than five hundred students and a faculty of eleven professors, fourteen instructors and twelve student assistant teachers, the school has been able to offer unus- ual advantages in instruction. The in- crease in enrollment each year for the six years, 158-238-250-303-444 and 508, has been most gratifying. The quality of the teaching has been ex- emplified in the efficient holders of cer- tificates and diplomas by their artistic performances and by their general musical proficiency. During each year manv concerts and recitals are given by faculty and students as well as visiting artists, aiding much in the educational development of student and townsman. VIOLIN QUARTET ideals necessary to artistic results and the aim of the school is so to develop the courses of study of music as an art and a science that the students will at the same time obtain a broad and liberal edu- cation. The most modern psycholog- ical and pedagogical principles are dem- onstrated thruout the school. The stu- dents are divided into elementary, academic and collegiate grades and they have many advantages in addition to, the private instruction because of the many free classes in Harmony, Ear-Training, Public Performance, History of Music, Sight-reading, Choral Sight Singing, Orchestra, and so forth. The atmosphere created by the assemblage of so many students working toward proficiency in the various lines is most whole- some and much inspiration is gained by this exchange of exper- Much emphasis has been placed on the upholding of the high iences and ideas.

JAMES, Principal FOUR classes of pupils seek admission to the Academy ; first, graduates of the eighth grade are admitted to the first year and reg- ularly complete the Academy course in four years ; second, graduates of the rural schools who have completed the ninth or tenth grade enter the sec- ond or third year; third, graduates of three year high school courses enter the fourth year and complete the Academy in one year ; fourth, those whose education has for some reason been ne- glected often prefer, because of their maturity, to enter the Academy rather than a high school. All of these classes find in the Academy op- portunity to continue their education and pre- pare for the University in as short a time as is consistent with thoroughness. Among the spe- BENJAMIN B. JAMES cial advantages of the Academy we may mention : 1. Moderate sized classes; few classes are al- lowed to exceed twenty in number, thus it is pos- sible for the teachers to do much individual work. 2. A collegiate atmosphere that encourages the pupil to prolong his education beyond the twelfth grade. 3. Superior equipment of the scientific laboratories and an excellent library. 4. Wide choice of courses for those qualifying for college entrance. 5. Apprentice courses for those who wish to get the elements of the mechanical arts. 6. Opportunity to pursue one or two Academy studies offered to those who are specializing in music and fine arts. 7. The students of the Academy have all the privileges of the gymnasi- ums, literary societies and Christian Associations. " All people said she hath authority.

If you do not care to stay around the buildings all morning, make yourself at home in my rooms. I will call for you there in time for lunch. " Just then Dean Rogers was called away and I was left to shift for my- self. After strolling around the buildings for a while I set out for the Dean ' s apartments. I arrived there in about ten minutes and, after removing my coat and hat, I sat down before his com- fortable grate fire and looked around for something to read. The first thing I noticed was what was evidently a scrap book, and upon examining it, I found my supposition to be correct. Pick- ing the book up and opening it I found that it contained news- paper clippings and school periodical articles, which ran almost as far back as the beginning of the college. The following were especially interesting to me because they concerned my time in college. The first was simply to the effect that the class of 19 10 had entered the university, but immediately following it was another clipping headed in large, black type which read as follows : " GETTYSBURG REFOUGHT ON J. M. U. CAMPUS. " " Yesterday after chapel the students of the J. M. U. turned out en masse to the campus to witness a glorious battle between the classes of ' 09 and ' 10. During chapel exercises a few Fresh- men had fastened their colors, black and gold, in a tree and had given the Sophs thirty minutes in which to take them clown. The fight was fierce while it lasted. An utter disregard was shown for clothing, and nearly every co-ed pos- sesses as a trophy a piece of some contestant ' s wearing apparel. . Needless to say the class of ' 10 retained the field of honor and drove the defeated and dejected Sophs back across the Styx in disgrace. " My eye ran on over two other pages but caught nothing- aside from society clippings until it came to this : " Last night the class of 1910 gave the class of 191 1 a much needed bath in the Styx. The Freshmen had congregated at the railroad crossing when a few Sophomores chancing to pass that way, heard some deprecating remarks concerning the class of ' 10. Hastily gathering their valiant band the Sophs smote the Freshies in a front, flank, and rear movement Night is a lively masquerade of day. " — Night Shirt Parade. 57 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK Altogether there were about twenty-five Freshies introduced into the Styx last night. " After the Freshmen had departed for towels and dry clothing, the Sophs proceeded to plant their colors on top of the smoke-stack. Today a black shirt and some gold colored bunting may be seen floating defiantly in the breeze. " Right after this was a clipping which was to the effect that when chapel convened one morning, each Freshman found a poster stuck on the back of his seat. This poster was a picture oi a baby holding to its mouth a bottle labeled " Prexy ' s Gruel. " I can well recall with what consternation the Freshmen looked at those posters, and how hard " Doc " Richmond worked soaking them off with hot water. But, as I remember, the consternation of the Freshmen on seeing those posters was non est as compared with the look on the Seniors ' faces when they were informed that the annual Junior- Senior Banquet would be given at the St. Nicholas Hotel by the class of 19 1 o. Such lavishness by a Junior class was a new epoch in J. M. U. history, so no wonder they were dismayed. They immediately began sending " special-deliveries " home for more money. Just then Dean Rogers entered the room. " What are you dreaming about? " he incpiired. " About the class of 1910, " I answered. " Well, " he said, " to my knowledge that was the most ' all-around ' class we ever had in the University. During the entire four years of their course they did the most original tilings. For instance their Senior stunt was far above all previ- ous attempts ; and their class meetings were certainly the most successful we have seen as yet — or are likely to see for some time to come. I distinctly remember one which wound up with seren- ading the faculty who were having a stunt party. As a memoir they left one of the stone seats which we see each morning as we enter the campus. Outside their class they were represented in every organization in college and in all branches of athletics, and, if I remember rightly, the winners O ' f the Brown Debate for four consecutive years were members of that class. Yes, sir, that class reached the high water mark when it came to versa- tility. " But we must hurry to lunch. We have waited so long for this dedication that we cannot afford to miss even a small part of the exercises. Come on. " Perhaps I ought to say that the event in question was the dedication of the new gymnasium. — Lucian Cecil Cox. " Sweet and fair, clear blue eyes and golden hair. " — Clara Tooker. 58 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK Mentor deception On Wednesday evening, December i th, the Seniors held their annual reception, given to the Faculty, Board of Managers, Students of the College, and fourth year Academy, in the formal reception until nine o ' clock. They were then invited into the Assembly Hall where an informal program was given by Miss Connover, reader, assisted by Miss Wandel, pianist, and main corridor of the University. The receiving line, stationed in the reception room, was made up of President and Mrs. A. R. Taylor, Dean Rogers, Dean Valentine, the senior class president, John R. Lyons, Bounita Boyd, Ethel Rogers, and Louise Steven- son. About three hundred guests were entertained with an in- Miss Kadish, soloist. After the program, six of the Sophomore girls, Julia Owings, Madge Blake, Marie Scott, Pearl Grady, Lncile Fisher and Edna Davis, served orange ice and frou-frous at each end of the corridor. Both the corridor and stage were deco- rated with palms. An orchestra played throughout the evening. " Blessings be about you dear wherever you may go. " — Helen Heald. 59 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK Mentor tunt " Where are the Seniors this morning? " comes a question- ing whisper. " S ' pose they all cut? " whispers a second " Naw, must be sump ' in doin ' , " is the answer. Meanwhile Prexy sits in his chair gazing at his beloved flock. When suddenly there comes the sound of many feet in the corridor, followed by a great twisting and craning of necks to find out what is up. Everyone holds his breath. Here come the belated Seniors single file down the aisle and their costumes — Oh !— Loud and long is the hand clapping which greets them. " Great! " " Swell! " " Cute! " " Peachy! " " Grandest Ever! " can be heard all over chapel. Well, needless to say, the class of 191 o carries the day. " Sober, steadfast, and demure.

We have passed through the many necessary stages of de- velopment — from x + v to ( — % , from, Physiology to Biology, and from amo, amas, a mat to " Quae cum ita sinl, " and now we come to demand the recognition which is our due. In 1906 we met for the first time,, a motley crowd of big children. Some of us were tall, some short, some round, some angular, some witli big hands and some with big feet. Some of us were hard to understand; some of us were endowed with the coveted ability to endure in silence the slanders of bits of human- ity who had passed only a few more mile posts on the road of Knowledge than we. All of us had somewhere within our mental selves that ambition or desire to become — as you, our worthy Seniors, appear to be — wise. As a second year class we were organized, but that was not all, for we had a president who was a President. As a third vear class we ventured still farther out upon the " social pond. " farther, in fact, than any preceding third year craft had ever ventured, for we gave a reception in the lobby, and entertained not only with " pink ice-cream, " but even with a play, pronounced by some to have been the most unique and enjoyable of the vear. This year! Oh! this year! what plans we have made and carried out, what feats we have accomplished, only such as we can ever know. More than once we have caused a worthy pedagogue to nod his head in assent, when we extended to him the invitation to chaperon us on a hay-ride or sleigh-ride. Now, oh Seniors ! our achievements have not all been social achievements, for we have climbed, each succeeding year, a little nearer that pinnacle of fame which you have attained. The way is steep, and at times the barriers which confront us seem insur- mountable, but we are young and determined, and will surely succeed. We are ever readv to turn our thoughts either to work or to play, and to enter into both with all heart, soul, mind and body, striving never to shirk the task which we conscientiously know to be ours. We are not long to remain thus beneath your notice. Seniors. Our motto is Men are we grown. Men ' s work must we do. Live pure, speak true. The members of the class of 1910 will " see you later. " in fields where their talents and ambitions, so crude at present, may bud and bloom to the full extent of their ability. — Rowena Bell Hudson. " Is this the play of fond illusions? " — Tsych Carried. NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK ateton Hall ON December 13th, 1909, the Board of Managers of the University voted to change the name of the dormitory from Woman ' s Hall to Aston Hall, in honor of Mrs. James Millikin, nee Aston. This action was taken without any consultation whatsoever with Mrs. Millikin. It was not done with any feeling of indifference as to her wishes, but past exper- ience had shown that if any memorial was to be had of the bene- factors, it must be designed without their knowledge. There is in this connection one fact not generally known to the public. When the little orphanage on Sangamon street — a house donated by Mr. Millikin for the homeless — no longer met the needs, and the splendid home on Oakland avenue had been erected, the directors named it the " Anna B. Millikin Home " in honor of the chief donors, notwithstanding their vigorous and re- peated protests. A similar story of declination of honor and tribute comes forth in connection with the naming of the Uni- versity. After the completion of the dormitory, the same experience was undergone. Mrs. Millikin decided the name should be ' ' Woman ' s Hall, " and no powers of persuasion availed to change the decision in favor of a name commemorating the name of the donors. Recently since the death of Mr. Millikin, it has become clear to those who have been in consultation with Mrs. Millikin about the needs of the university or the church or the community, that here is a sympathy with worthy causes, a readiness to respond to all appeals for donations, as pronounced as that of Mr. Millikin, and of a character as unobtrusive and retiring, and one which had almost effaced itself behind the person of Mr. Millikin. It had all along been known by those associated with the direction of the Millikin benefactions that Mr. Millikin always consulted with his other half, but the significance of this deference was not fully appreciated. Had the order of death been reversed, it might not have been known how largely the many benefactions reflect- ed the mind of Mrs. Millikin. And so, in recognition of this ready response to all calls for assistance, the name of Aston Hall was unanimously chosen by the Board of Managers. " Custom reconciles to everything.

I know not why, of all the dells, Of all the try sting- places fair, 1 chose this nest of wild blue-bells, Unless ' twas fate that led me there. But now, one wreath of faded blue Is sweeter than all roses are, And in the field of memories true One place shines clearly as a star. —William H. Banfill.

The following article, written by request, serves as an example of the activities in which our alumni are interested. — Editor.] WHAT is the purpose of the Social Settlement? Until that is clear in our minds anything that may be said will be at random. The Social Settlement is an object lesson in Christian living and home making. It is a wide humanitarian movement trying to embody itself in society, instead of in a sect, or a club, for the purpose of curing the ills of society, correcting the lives of the unfortunates, and improving the conditions of living for the poor. Educated men and women, closing the doors of oppor- tunities to live among people of their own class, choose to make their homes in the poorest parts of our great cities among an in- ferior and often degraded people, in order that they may come into personal contact with them for the purpose of being a wholesome influence in their lives. They hope to give them higher ideals and inspire them to strive to attain unto those ideals. Thus the knowledge and culture accumulated in the college and university, and the experience accumulated in the industrial life and in the depths of poverty are placed side by side in daily life. These two classes think, plan, and work together, supplementing each other where that is needed, in creating a power to move public opinion to solve the problems of modern society in the most intelligent way. This little band of workers seeks to do this in various ways. The first great item in their influence is that they live among the people. The presence of cultured, upright, sociable people in a community always has a tendency to raise the dignity and self re- spect of that community. The home life of the workers is not affected at all by being in the slums. It is conducted as it would be if they were living in a cultured neighborhood, for polished windows, clean curtains, scrubbed doorsteps, with peace and order about the house, are an example and a lesson in home life diat the slums need very badly. They seek to reach the people in a more direct way through various clubs and classes, all of which have their meetings in the settlement building. The men of the community have clubs, the officers of which are chosen from among their own number. The men workers of the settlement are members, but act only in an individualistic way, trying to influence the work in the way it should go. There are clubs and classes for the women and girls, such as sewing, cooking, etc., as circumstances may call for. These are taught and led by trained people of the settlement force. The gymnasium and outdoor playground, under the care of a physical culture specialist, is a source of pleasure and help to the boys and girls. The wee tots are cared for in the " A serious, sincere character. " — Earle Bryant. 92 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK kindergarten. Through all of these means the settlement tries to reach the needs of the people and give them a helping hand on the upward road to better living. We must not get the idea from all of this that a settlement is a noisy clubhouse filled with various educational and social activities that will gradually drive out the home life. Far from that! The home life is the foundation of all of these other activ- ities and without it the whole work would be nothing more than that of any other club. By conducting all of these various activities the settlement hopes to enter, lead, and control whatever of social life the neighborhood may afford. It seeks to focus and give form to that life and bring to bear upon it the results of education and culture. The settlement holds itself ready to meet all new prob- lems that develop in a congested community, and seeks to solve them by working shoulder to shoulder with the people themselves. The whole movement is founded upon the belief that the seeds of all that is beautiful and true in human character, and of the best social development are to be found in the lives of our working people, and that firm in that belief, it is our duty and privilege to work with them so to change the outer conditions of their lives that those seeds may grow and blossom out in the fullness and beauty of life. — Charles F.

" she spread her hands over the place where he was pounding. asked Joy suddenly. John looked rather startled. " Why no, " he said slowly. " I ' ve never thought of being anything else. Has thee? " Joy sat on the top crotch of the crooked old " snake fence. " In her sober grey gown and hood, she looked like a little grey Phoebe-bird perched up there— all but her face. It was all gay and vivid and sparkling with its dainty color, and most un-Ouaker-like. John was mending the fence, and Joy was helping him, so she said. Now she looked down at him with a half defiant frown. " Yes I have! So there! I ' ve thought about it a lot lately. I ' m tired of having everything forever just the same. I want something to happen. I ' m weary of having everybody peaceful and quiet and good. I ' m sick of being so good myself. It ' s stupid to be so good; it ' s — cow-like. " John smiled quietly. " So thee is afraid thee is getting too good? " he inquired in- terestedly. " For my own pleasure- -ves. Of course I ' m not afraid of getting too good to please old Greeberry Wood, or Steadfast Mather; and I don ' t know as I want to either, " she added de- fiantly. But John was pounding the fence so industriously that he didn ' t hear. " Listen John! Thee shall listen to me! " and bending down, " Does thee truly think it is wicked to like music and singing. ' ' Doesn ' t thee ever feel like singing thyself — and even like danc- ing? I know I was never meant to be a Quaker, or I shouldn ' t so love all forbidden things. I ought to be peaceable and placid like thee, John, " with a little laugh. With a sudden flash of his eyes, John swept the little hands out of his way, and began pounding the fence with a vigor that threatened to shake Joy off. " Perhaps I ' m not quite so placid as thee thinks. " " Why John, " in surprise, " Thee ' s not very polite. I shan ' t hold thy fence still for thee any more, if thee isn ' t nicer to me. " The early November twilight was just falling. Joy looked across the brown fields to the western sky, with its bars of dull red and yellow. " Wouldn ' t it be lovely to have a dress that color? " she said reflectively. " I feel just like a Maltese cat in this ugly old grey. " " John, " with a sudden earnestness, " I don ' t think it was ever meant for us to be so sober and so grave. We ought to have a gayer, gladder, sort of life. Doesn ' t thee think so? " She said it almost pleadingly. John looked at her beautiful vivid face, and knew that for herself, she was right. " Anyway, " she finished in a burst of rebellion, " some day I shall run away and go to the city, and I shall go to the theater and the opera, and concerts and to dances; and I shall buy a pur- " An honest countenance is the best passport.

" Somewhere back in Joy ' s ancestry, had been a gypsy girl, and the restless blood that she had bequeathed to her little great- great-grand-daughter made life very hard for the little Quaker- ess, sometimes. Joy never tired of hearing about her — how gay and frivolous and beautiful she had been, but how the stern old Quakers looked on her ways with horror; how on her very wed- ding-day they had churched her husband for marrying her and thrust him out, but how little he cared, because be loved her so; but how afterwards, the Wanderlust in her blood called her too strongly and she ran away and was never heard of again. In a box of old pictures, was a daguerreotype of her, and people said that Joy was like her. The other pictures were all of prim dignified Quakers in grey, with bonnets and kerchiefs, and the gypsy ' s lovely face and gay silken gown looked very strange in the sober company. For Joy, the picture with its romantic story held a strange fascination. She used to pore eagerly over it, until her mother would take it away from her with an anxious look, saying wist- fully : " Why is thee so fond of it, child? I should be terribly sad to see thy life like hers. " But Joy would lift her face, all aglow with enthusiasm. " Oh mother, she ' s so beautiful and so interesting. I ' d love to be just like her. " Then her mother would go away with the worried look deepening in her eyes. This afternoon, Joy ' s father and mother had gone to Fourth Day meeting. While she rummaged through a sea of grey clothes in an old attic chest, something bright caught her eye. She pulled until it came out, and held it up. It was a gown of scarlet silk, and Joy knew instantly, with a throb of her heart, that it was her gypsy grandmother ' s, the very one that she wore in the picture. Full of excitement, she ran down to her room and put it on. When she peeped into her little oval mirror, she was almost afraid, for the picture there was so like the daguerreotype — the same oval frame, scarlet gown, and the same eager gypsy-like face, with its shining eyes and dark rumpled hair. Suddenly a longing came over her to run away and play that she was really a gypsy, so strong that she could not even fight it. Snatching her grey cloak over the gorgeous frock, she ran out. A storm was blowing up, but it only fitted in with her hilar- ious mood, and down the hills through the whirling leaves, she flew like a little wild thing. And so it came about that Joy was out in the field with John that day. Presently he held up his arms and lifted her down. Even as he spoke, the cloud broke over them and the rain came down in sheets. John seized her hands and began to run. " Let ' s try for the old sugar-camp. It ' s only a little ways. " Just as they reached the door of the little old house, a dis- tressed honking sounded down the road behind them, and a big led car full of people labored up the hill and came to a stop before the hut. " Can you get in ? " called the driver. Without even waiting for an answer his passengers began to climb out and scramble up the path to the house. Thev were very wet and very hilarious; and in the fun over building a fire in the crazy old fire-place, Joy and John grew very friendly with them. One of the gay city damsels inveigled John into rigging up a clothesline with a cord and they hung up their automobile " A born gentleman. " — Ray Rhines. 97 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK veils in a row to dry. After a while, down in a darksome cave under the house where the sugar-making supplies were kept, they found several cakes of maple sugar and a big black kettle. " Dost see the connection? " asked Jack Melville, as he held up the sugar and hung the kettle over the fire. A shout of ap- probation answered him. So while the others kept warm with various infantile games, he and Joy stirred the candy over the fire. Joy was very happy; she had been longing for an adventure and this was such a splendid one. She liked the friendly city people and their gay ways; and just now half shyly, she was enjoying Jack ' s playful devotion, so different from John ' s sober matter-of-fact manner. John ' s attentions were usually cut after a brotherly pattern, and this new kind was exciting. That night her dreams were a medley of inverted black kettles that rained candy o ' er the earth, and big red autos that drove dizzily along the tops of fences ; and always on the front seat by the driver, rode a damsel in a scarlet gown. During the next month she saw that same big machine many times other than in dreams. Often it shot along the country roads and through the quiet little Quaker village; and blaring with its ungodly trumpet, woke into life the windows of the prim little drab houses. His friends said that when Jack Melville was rushing anybody, he always did it thoroughly. Little Joy ' s room was heavy with the fragrance of his roses, and her eyes with the glamour of her dreams. Many were the long rides she had in the big auto, and many the tales of the ga_ world that he told her. But all the while the worry in her mother ' s eyes deepened. One day Jack asked her to go to a party in the city with him. It was to be a masquerade ball, and a most gorgeous affair. He told her all about the beautiful women and their gowns, the music, the lights, and the flowers. Joy listened longingly and struggled with her temptation. " Oh Jack, I ' d love to go. But — I guess you ' ve forgotten that I ' m a Quaker, haven ' t you ? " and she smiled half sadly. Joy was beginning to say " you " to Jack, for he sometimes teased her about her " thee ' s. " " Nonsense, Joy. You ' re not so good a Quaker as all that. At heart, you ' re really ' of the world, woddly I know. " He stopped and laughed — " The other day in town, the wind had been blowing your hair out from under your bonnet, and it was flying all over your face. I heard a man laugh and say, ' Look at the curly-headed little girl there, trying to be a Quaker and can ' t. ' That ' s just what you are doing too, Joy. You might just as well go with me. " " Would they — does thee suppose they will dance? " Jack smiled at her eagerness. " At a ball of course one naturally expects to dance. " " But Jack, I don ' t know how. " " Never mind, I ' ll teach you. If you ' ll only mask in your grandmother ' s gypsy dress — " and Jack launched into such a stream of allurements and wily persuations that before long, Joy yielded. It was hard to refuse him, when she wanted so dread- fully much to go. It so happened that as the Masquerade fell on the same night as Quarterly meeting, they found it necessary to go to 1 meeting first. " An open-hearted maiden, true and pure. " — Lucile Logan. 98 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK They left the wicked auto behind the graveyard hedge, and tiptoed up the path, full of naughty excitement, and trying to get into a proper Quarterly meeting state of mind. " Now remember. Jack, " Joy cautioned him at the door with a giggle, " to leave thy hat on, and to try to be as decorous as thee can. There ' s thy door. Farewell. " " Farewell! " in amazement. " Where are you going? " " Why to the women ' s side, of course. Thee didn ' t suppose the men and women sat together, did thee? " with dancing eyes. " The dickens they don ' t! " said Jack wrathfully. " Where do they sit ? " But Joy was gone; the door was just in front of him, so he opened it and took off his hat. Then remembering Joy ' s in- junction at the sight of rows and rows of gray-hatted heads, he hastily clapped it on again and went in. The big plain room was full of people, all sitting very still and quiet; nut even the rustle of leaves disturbed the peace, for no hymn books, nor prayer books, no organ nor choir, and no minister were here. At first Jack was so oppressed by the silence that he was afraid to move. Joy watched him across the parti- tion, smiling wickedly at his subdued air. Presently, down in front, a man got up, and leading a pretty grey-bonneted girl by the hand, walked over in front of the women ' s side and facing them, said gravely: " I continue my in- tentions of matrimony with Mary Stratton. " The girl blushed furiously and answered : " I continue my in- tentions of matrimony with James Pearson. " Then after crossing to the men ' s side and repeating their worthy intentions, they sat down together. " Well of all the unique engagement announcements — " muttered Jack. His face was a s tudy in amazement, and watch- ing him, Joy felt the sense of decorum fast deserting her. But by and by, the quiet rest and calm of the familiar place began to influence her, and the outside things to fade away. Jack and the people slipped out of her consciousness ; she only knew that she was in church, where one puts away worldly things. Somehow nothing in the world is so like those " first temples " as this Quaker silence where the preacher is God him- self. It seemed to her that she was a little girl again, in meeting with her father and mother, and that nothing in the world could ever shake the brooding peace upon them. But suddenly a breath of wind blew her grey cloak open, and under it, her grandmother ' s scarlet gown flamed forth. The contrast struck her so sharply just then that she shivered all over and fastened it down again. Just then it seemed like a Avicked thing to be covered up. Somehow, in her thoughts. Jack and the scarlet gown always seemed to belong together. To her it had grown to be a sort of symbol of the part of her that was not a Quaker. Her father would call it " the world, the flesh, and the Devil, " she thought dreamily. Outside an auto horn honked and her heart thrilled. It seemed like a call — the call of the world, and the Wanderlust, and her gypsy blood answered it with a lea]). She thought of the long rushing ride in the darkness that was before her. and of the glitter and excitement at its end, and her heart pounded with eag ' erness. By and by she tried to be quiet and reverent again. She s t still and let the peace flow in upon her. But then the thought of Jack grew into an ache ; somehow he and the Quaker peace could not abide together. " Let a man, then, know his worth. " — Roy Wentz. no NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK It was sweet to know that she was so adored and crowned Queen in his heart. She thought of a line in one of the books he had given her, " His eyes are so blue that they fill all her dreams. " It would be hard to give it all up. But then, her mother ' s face, and the look in her eyes came before her, and with a dull ache in her heart, she put her head down on the back of the bench in front of her and prayed that the warring elements in her might in some way be reconciled, that she might keep them both. She never knew how long she sat there with bowed bead, but it seemed almost forever. Scenes and pictures from the two lives flashed before her and each fought and plead for mastery. At last she knew that they could never blend — that she must choose. Jack ' s alluring voice that knew so well how to persuade her, came; and then her mother ' s eyes and the love that had been hers all her life. Sick and weary of the fight she stopped and listened. On the other side of the house she heard her father ' s voice praying for all their children impersonal!} ' , but to little Joy it seemed meant for her alone to help her decide. It made her think of the prayer of Jairus: " My little daughter lieth at the point of death. I pray thee come and lay thy hands on her that she may be healed. " She felt all the old influence of her life closing about her, and only one thread drawing her away — but that was such a g olden thread, and it pulled so insistently. Aching, she tried to snap it, for now she knew at last which side was right for her. She saw the old man in the highest seat turn to his neighbor and hold out his hand— the signal for the meeting to break. As though in an evil dream she walked toward the door, for she knew what she must do, she did not dare now to think of the " blue of his eye, " but tried to hold her mother ' s face before her, instead, to steady her. At the door he was waiting. " Good-bye, Jack, " she said quietly. " I am not going with thee. " She stooped, and over the scarlet gown, down to its very hem, she fastened the grey cloak. — Ada Lenore Porter, ' 12. " Blue were her eyes as the fairy flax. 100 — Helen Page. N I N EiT EEN TEN MILLIDEK Zfjt %tavt of a Cfnltr Millidek Prize Story EACHER was waiting for him at the corner. While she stood there under the great trees which bordered the quaint old street, she was watching the door of the big house, where the Littlest One lived. Soon the front door opened and a little figure came out. It was the Littlest One. He came down the steps very slowly, until he saw Teacher, then he hurried so fast that he nearly tumbled down. As he went running toward her, his round face was filled with pride. Before he got cpiite there, Teacher stopped, as always, and waited. But this morning the Littlest One stopped short. " I can ' t kiss you this morning, " he calmly announced. I ' m five years old today, and I ' ve got to quit this kissin ' business. " " Why, yes, " in answer to Teacher ' s surprised inquiry, " 1 like you just the same, but when a fellow ' s five years old, he ' s too old to kiss. I told my father that, an ' he said, ' Well, old man, if you feel that way ' bout it. ' " Teacher smiled a little smile, that had something of sorrow, and a great deal of tenderness, in it. You see, she and the Lit- tlest One were such chums. They had been ever since the small boy first came to school, and Teacher had begged so hard that he be allowed to stay, even if he was so little, because he got so lonesome. For he lived in the big, old house with no one but his father and old Jane, the housekeeper. And now Teacher felt just a little sorrowful to see her Littlest One growing up. That was the reason for the sadness in her smile. The tenderness came from the fact that her small chum was so dear, and — from something else. While the happy voice of her little comrade trailed on, Teacher was remembering the words his father had spoken to her, only last night. He had told her of his love for her, and afterward, as he was leaving her, he had said, " You will not keep me waiting long, will you, dear ? We need you, my little son and 1, so very much. " And Teacher, knowing the truth of his words, had promised that she would come to him very soon indeed. It was because of this promise that Teacher hurried the little ones into place this morning. She told them all about the lovely new lady who would tell them stories and help them with their songs, when she couldn ' t come to school any more. At first they could not understand, these babies she had loved and petted, but bye and bye they knew what she meant. As she talked, Teacher glanced down at the Littlest One, and she saw him sitting there with a pleased smile on his face, but with eyes that did not look into hers, as always before. And, oh ! how deceiving was the smile of the Littlest One. As the Littlest One walked home that afternoon, he was very thoughtful. When he got to the steps of the house, he sat clown, propped his chin in his palms, and meditated. " Maybe I ' ll die, " he mourned dismally. " I most wish I would. I won ' t never get to stand up when I get tired in school, an ' when it ' s cold I won ' t be buttoned up. Then I ' ll get an awful cold and I ' spect I ' ll die. " ' Being good ' s an awful lonesome job. " — Miriam Valentine. 101 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK Every morning he met Teacher. Every morning he shook hands very stiffly. But in these days his eyes tried hard to avoid hers. When she talked to the children about the lady who was coming when she went away, some of them cried and said they wanted just Teacher, but the Littlest One looked out of the win- dow beside him, and made no sign. Only his cheeks grew red and his eyes bright as he listened to her. And always after such times the Littlest One went home and lay in the big chair in the library, answering to his father ' s questions only, " I ' m just tired and I ' m a ' thinkin ' . " At last Teacher could hear it no longer. When she met the Littlest One next day, she took his hand and held it close while they walked along. Then she looked down at the plodding little figure and asked gently: " Tell Teacher what the matter is, won ' t you, Littlest One? If you are sick, you must tell me, yon know. Because we ' re chums, aren ' t we? " But the Littlest One drew himself np proudly, and took his hand away, answering slowly, " Nqthin ' is the matter. You don ' t need to worry about me. I feel real well. " The lumps in his throat belied his words. Perhaps in a minute he might ted her, he thought. But Teacher, heartsore, asked no more questions and they went silently on. And thus the days went by, until one morning Father drew the Littlest One, silent and unresisting, into his arms, saying: " Old man, a very dear lady is coming here to live. Someone who will button yon up and tuck yon in and love you lots. Don ' t you think that will be fine? It is somebody that father cares very much for, whom you can call mother. Why, you two will be reg- ular chums, just like you and Teacher are. " Before he had a chance to finish, the unresponsive form of the Littlest One stiffen- ed suddenly, and a pair of defiant brown eyes looked into Father ' s. " I don ' t want no one to button me up, " he cried passionately. " I don ' t want no chum any more. If she does come here, I won ' t love her. I tell you, I won ' t ha e any chum. " With a sud- den jerk and a sob, the Littlest One was out of his surprised fath- er ' s arms, and was gone. That morning Teacher waited a long time at the corner, hut the Littlest One did not come. When she got to school, there he sat, looking steadily at the pictures in his book, and not even glancing at Teacher. When it was time to go home, the children passed by and kissed Teacher, for tomorrow she would not be there. The Littlest One, his head proudly erect, was with the rest. He only offered a very limp hand, and his eyes were turned away. After that. Teacher could scarcely see the passing line, because her eyes were so filled with tears. When the Littlest One was in bed that night, and his father had been in to say good-night, the sorrow and grief of the little boy was sobbed out alone. Next morning he was even more quiet than before, and his father had no time to notice the gloom of the Littlest One. He only said to his small son : " Be good to- day, little man. But you musn ' t wait for me tonight. I ' ll be too late. I ' ll have a surprise for you in the morning, so go to bed early, and don ' t get very lonesome for father. Now, good bye, my boy. " The Littlest One did not go to school that day. He told Jane that he felt sick, and all day he lay listlessly in the big chair in the library, thinking there alone. When night came at last, he hud- dled into bed, falling into a troubled sleep after awhile. Bye and bye as if he were dreaming, there came a voice. It seemed to be " Full of fun and jollity. " — Helen Moffett. 102 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK coming nearer. Why, surely he wasn ' t dreaming. He heard the voice say, " Let ' s go in and see him, even if he is asleep. I want to tuck him in tight and warm, and begin mothering him right away. But, dear, what if he won ' t love me again as he used to! I think it would nearly break my heart. " Then the Littlest One was quite awake, he knew. For he still heard that voice, the one he loved so very much. At that moment the door opened and she, for it was she, came straight toward him, looked up at Father, and whispering in a voice that shook a little, " My Littlest One, yours and mine! Don ' t you see, dearest, he needs to be tucked in and kissed? " Not another minute did the Littlest One wait. Before she could get quite to him, he had his arms tight around her neck, saying over and over, with breathless little sobs now and then, " Oh, Teacher! Teacher! Are you goin ' to be here every minute? Are you the one my father told me about ? I do want to be chums, and it was just ' cause I was so sorry you was goin ' away. And — and — you can kiss me now, if I am five years old. You can do it ever ' night, if you want to — when you tuck me in. you know. " And Teacher, as she felt the little lips upon hers, and held the little warm body close in her arms, looked into the heart of the Littlest One, and understood. — Josephine Schlademan. ' 13.

The Director and Directora were there too, talking, and Tomas peeped, round-eyed, at them, over the top of his cup, and drank very, very slowly. " Oh, Robert, " he heard the Directora say sor- rowfully, " if we could only get her to stay. She ' s the best primary teacher the Mission School has ever had; and now, just when everything is started so beautifully, to have her go. " She ' s such a good teacher, and she ' s such a dear herself, somehow I just can ' t bear to have her go. I never saw anything like the way the children adore her. Really, I believe they think she ' s a sort of Madonna, with her golden hair — you know the superstition. Even the old Indian women stop in the streets when she passes them, and say ' Dios la Ouarda. ' Just think what a missionary she might he, Robert, if she only would " ; and the little Directora drew a long breath, — " but she won ' t. It ' s all just a game to her ; she ' s tired of it now, and wants a new one. " If she ' d only be half serious — Why, the other day I found one of the big Catholic boys burning up his rosary, bead by bead, and laughing when they popped. He said ' the Senorita didn ' t have a rosary, and neither would he. ' He was ' Protestante ' now. " Think what a chance. But when I told Mary about it, she only laughed and said she didn ' t know she was running an op- position business to Martin Luther, down here in LaPaz. Oh, Robert, isn ' t it too bad, when they all love her so, — when she might — , " and her voice was fairly tragic with regret. But the Director interrupted her with a sweet brave look of prophecy in his face. Tomas saw that look and, awestruck, thought that the altar candles were inside the Senor, shining out. " Do you know I believe she will, dear, some day. Just now she ' s a sort of Undine— part of her asleep. But she ' ll not sleep forever ; some day she ' ll waken, and think how splendidly she ' ll be then! How I ' d like to be the man to help waken her; " and his face was aglow with the joy of priesthood. Tomas ' s knowledge of English, though somewhat limited, yet was extensive enough to make him more round-eyed than ever as he listened. He was drinking his ninth cup of water when the Directora crossed the patio and opened the door of the First Primary room. The cup clanged on its chain, and Tomas slipped in the door behind her. Inside, Mary was telling the First Primary children a story. If there was one thing in the world that she could do well, it was to tell stories. She said it was her weapon of defense ; for when the children were impish, she told them a story, and straightway they became angels — while the story lasted. For whether it was " The Little Red Hen, " or " The Merrie Adventures of Robin Hood, " she so threw herself into the telling that the children fair- ly lived the story with her. Today it was one of the old Arthur legends, and just at the end of it; they were all eager, intent, quiveringly sensitive, like " A little o-i r l ' u d alius laughs an ' grins. " — Marguerite Votaw. 104 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK little tense violins. She finished ; and for one breathless moment, they too, might have been Percivals and Sir Galahads. Then with a laugh, Mary waved her hands before their dreaming faces, with mystic motions, as mesmerists do, and chanted, " Wake up, little people. " Wtih a long quivering sigh, they came out of their trance, and smiled back at her. Over in the doorway, the Directora whispered, " What couldn ' t she do with them, if she only would. " ' Let ' s play a story now, " said Mary. With calm assurance, she went to the blackboard and began to draw what appeared to be a pile of purple cannon-balls. The Directora was watching interestedly and felt some surprise when she added green stems, and wrote above it in large letters — " Grapes. " " That ' s in the interests of Pedagogy rather than Art, you understand, " Alary remarked in a laugh aside. Behind her, her audience sat in rigid attitudes of " position, " each hoping to be chosen an actor in this approaching drama — all save Tomas, who hastily availed himself of this opportunity to whisper something to Francis, and then folded his hands with a most seraphic look, just as the Senorita turned around. " Who wants to be the fox? Well, Tomas. " Francis looked worried. Ordinarily, he was extremely fond of being a fox, but today he allowed Tomas to capture the coveted role without even a protesting glance. He watched with grave courtesy, while fat little Tomas, with covetous fingers grasping at the painted grapes, leaped gallantly three times against the hard wall, and then turning around, scornfully an- nounced, in careful English, " They do not like me, they are sour. " Little Francis was always grave and courteous. The Senor- ita Mary sometimes laughingly called him " Little Saint Francis, " because he was always so dreadfully in earnest, and because he was such a cherub in school. She did not know it, but he also had made of her a saint. She would have been very much surprised, of course, if she had learned of her canonization ; but nobody knew about it save little Francis. He had a dreadful time finding a name for her, for there were so many saints already, that all the names were taken. At last, in despair he called her simply " La Santa Senorita. " In his earnest, intense little heart, was a shrine to her, very, very high, — for of all the people, she was the sweetest and dearest, and in all the world, he loved her best. His love had a wonderful strength about it, for such a tiny fellow — all his Spanish mother ' s warmth, mingled with his English father ' s idealism. Xow. when the Senorita passed him, he let his hand hang out in the aisle, and when her dainty dress brushed it, he gave a little shiver. Mary was in a hurry tonight, for she was going to pack her trunk. The moment school was out, she cast aside her thin veil of dignity, ran gailv across the sun-lit patio, and half-way up the stairs bumped into the old music-master carrying his violin. He smiled at her headlong haste. " Well, Miss Mary, are you so glad that you ' re going back to England ? " " Oh yes, I ' ve been crazy glad all day. I ' m tired of being a pedagogue, and cherishing my dignity. I ' m going home to walk the fence, and sit on the arm of my father ' s chair. " " Why don ' t you stay here, Miss Mary? " lie said with a sort of pleading persistence. " They need you. " " Why? " she said after him in amazement. " Why, because " Some hearts there be to which this life is only a round of happy days. " — Cleo Lichtenberger and Blanche Hamilton. 105 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK I don ' t want to. I ' m tired of it. I don ' t want to stay, " she said again, as though trying to make him understand. " That ' s not the true missionary spirit, child, " he said sadly. " I ' m not a missionary and I won ' t be accused of it, " Mary flamed hack at him. " I ' m just a plain First Primary teacher, " and, indignantly, she ran up the stairs. That night, with great glee and ceremony. Mary packed her trunk. In a woolly kimona, curled up on the floor in front of it, she was just folding the last ribbons and gloves; the little gold clock on the desk pointed to ten, and below in the street under the window, she heard the watchman ' s half musical, singsong cry, — " Ave Ma-ria Purissima. " Suddenly, in spirit-like silence, the door slowly and wierdly swung open, and in glided a little white ghost. For just a minute, Mary was startled, and her hands crushed the chiffon bow they held ; then she caught the wide, unseeing look in the little spectre ' s eyes, and remembered Francis ' sleep-walking propensities. She had never seen him do it before, and full of interest, she watched. In one hand, he held a hall of fish-cord, yards of it trailing behind him, and in the other, a pair of kindergarten scissors. He walked around the table once and then sat down on the floor and began to untangle the cord. " You see, Tomas, " he said presently, " this is a dreadfully strong cord — it cost two pesos, the ball did — but it ' ll need to be strong to catch the panadero; he ' s such a big fellow, he ' s almost sixteen you know, Tomas, and we ' re only seven. We ' ll have the lasso all fixed and hide behind the fountain; then when he comes near enough, we ' ll throw it over his head, haul him off his donkey, and then — behind the fountain, — we ' ll drink his blood. " Mary was almost convulsed at his solemn, sepulchral tone, and wondered much what the poor panadero could have done to call forth this deep-dyed plot. But presently she was enlightened. " I wouldn ' t care, Tomas, " he went on, " how much he called me a ' Gringo, ' for I am one of course, really, because my father ' s an Englishman; but I zvon ' t have him call the Senorita one, and make fun of her hair, just ' cause it isn ' t ugly and black like his. " I ' d be a fine knight, wouldn ' t I — I just won ' t have it, Tomas, I say, " he repeated passionately, at thought of the deadly insult to his beloved Senorita. For awhile, he undid knots and tangled places with vicious little jerks, and Mary watched himi with eyes that were both warm and merry. But when he spoke again, it was in a soft, changed little voice. " Tomas, do you know, I never told you, but she used to be my saint. But there ' s nothing you can do for a saint only just love it, and there ' re such a lots of lovely things that knights can do for their ladies — fightin ' and tournaments and things ; so when she told us the stories about the knights, I changed her to a Queen of Love and Beauty. " Tomas, do you s ' pose — , " and his voice grew still more soft and shy, " do you s ' pose she ' ll ever know that I ' m her knight? " Mary suddenly had a queer feeling that she ought to go out softly, and shut the door — and yet she stayed. " I ' d like to have her know, — but I can ' t ever tell her my- self — When you love people very, very much, Tomas, you ' re sort of afraid of them. And now if she goes away — but I don ' t be- lieve that Tomas; you ' re just mistaken; you don ' t know very much English of course, " patronizingly. " Anyway, " with a renunciatory little sigh, " it doesn ' t mat- ter after all. She doesn ' t have to know ; I can be just as good " Life is a series of surprises. " — The New Sororities. 106 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK a knight anyway. I — I don ' t mind of course, only sometimes she looks so far away, up there in front — and the really ladies re- warded their knights, you know, " longingly. " Tomas, do you s ' pose she ' ll ever — ■ " But with an impulsive cry, Mary ran to him; and the little knight, wondering, awoke to find at last his lady ' s garden. Quite a long time afterwards, the old music-master began to play on the house-top. Soft and insistent, the music floated down to them, and they climbed up together into the deep window seat to listen. The night was cool and dark, and they so high up and far away from the ground, it seemed that they were alone up there, with just the unseen violin, ft made Mary think of " On such a night " — " Lots of nights like this, when he can ' t go to sleep, he plays up there, " said Francis. The old man had once been first violin in a great orchestra; and tonight he was playing bits of operas, scraps of all the things that he used to play below the footlights, in the old days. Fitfully, the violin wandered from 11 Trovatore to La Traviata, from the Toreador Song to the Gypsy Bridal Chorus in The Bo- hemian Girl ; and then breaking off, it swung into the opening bars of the Faust March. Mary suddenlv shivered ; that was what the band had played the night Dick ' s regiment started away. All her life long, the sound of that march would flash the whole scene vividly before her. She saw again the station, the grey fog that shrouded all, and moving through it, the people, like crowds of giant shad- ows, wierdly tall. The lamps flared in the wind, and the train bells clanged. Down in the gutter, a little street waif was singing monotonously a barrack song he had picked up from the sol- diers, — " We ' re goin ' ome, we ' re goin ' ' erne, Our ship is at the shore, An ' you must pack your ' aversack, For we won ' t come back no more, " and she remembered how, even then, she had smiled at the incon- gruity of it. She felt again the atmosphere of excitement and pain and throbbing through it all, the music of the Faust March. The only things that had seemed real that night were her father ' s stern face under his officer ' s helmet, and Dick in his new uniform. The daughter of one soldier, and the sister of another — she had always been so proud of that. And then, with a sudden throb, she came back to the window seat, her half-packed trunk, and little Francis, half asleep on her arm. At last she saw what that other scene ought to mean to her, and why it had come again just then. " The daughter of a soldier " — that said itself over and over in her brain, and seemed to point accusing fingers at her. From the wall, Dick ' s jeering voice came down to her, " A Quitter, " and Mary looked up, startled, to meet his scornful eves. She turned away from them in pain ; and then the little knight ' s arms crept clingingly around her, and her hair dropped over his eyes. " The daughter of a soldier " — and out of the darkness and night there came a call to arms, and for the first time, her regi- ment was ordered to the front. The old violinist began to play God Save the Queen. With a long, shivering sigh. Mary slipped to the floor and pulled Francis down. I wish I had a girl. " — Quinton Burkhart. 107 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK and hung her pistol below ; then with a sob, she pulled down from the wall the picture of a little English manor and buried it under the sofa cushions. " What is it? " asked little Francis, looking wonderingly at the tremulous lips and over-bright eyes. " Is it a game? " " Come, let ' s go down to the Director. I must tell him not to send for my trunk. Yes, laddie, it ' s a new game, and I can ' t play it very well — just yet. " Ada Lenore Porter, ' 12. " Stand up, laddie. Every British soldier stands up, with his hat off, when they play that. " Only dimly understanding, his hand followed hers in the salute. Then with a shaky little laugh, Mary ran to the open trunk and drew out a little old battered soldier cap of her father ' s. " If I ' m to act the part, I may as well dress for it, " and she pinned her kimona with an army badge. Laughing whimsically, she pulled out the folds of the Union Jack around Dick ' s photo, ' Flirti ng is playing with fire and pretending it is sawdust. " — Mabel Edmondson. 108 AUDITORIUM NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK apple iUofi omg ' Twas a lovely clay in April, As I wandered from the village, From an Illinoian village, O ' er the fields towards the churchyard, O ' er the fields so green and cheerful. And the dandelions were blooming ' Mong the grass beside the violets, While the birds were sweetly singing, As they built their nests with gladness In the hedges and the orchards, Orchards full of apple blossoms — And the air was rife with fragrance. As I wandered slowly onward, Drinking in the scene of beauty, Glad to be among the living — For new life was in my being And new life was all around me In a thousand different stations — Came I to an old stile rustic, Overhung with apple branches, And the boards were strewn with petals, Petals white as fluffy snow-flakes. Too, the bees were softly humming, While a robin gayly chirped. As I sat me down and rested. Soon I heard the sound of footfalls, Looking up I saw a lady Dressed in robes of creamy whiteness, With a face so fair, yet solemn — One that spoke of heavenly longings, Of high thoughts of God and Angels. I had seen her on the Sabbath As she bowed her head in worship, And the image had stayed with me. Soon she spoke about the service, What a comfort was the sermon, How it helped to bear her burden, Gave her grace to trust the Master And be patient while He tarried. " True, " I said, " What is your burden? Will you tell me while we tarry, If no reason does forbid it? " " No, no reason does fo rbid it — But the world seems cold and selfish, And it has so many burdens That I would not add another. So I labor on in silence With the help the Giver gives me; There ' s no one in all this village Knows my life with all its windings — But they call me ' strange ' and ' cranky, ' An ' old ' maid, ' with all her queerness, Birds and flowers, cats with ribbons, Garden neat and cottage perfect — And so many other strange ways That they claim go with a ' spinster. ' " I give her all my roses. " — Fred Aurand. 110 NINETEEN TE " Well, if you must hear the story. And since you ' re to be our pastor, I will tell you. ' Tis the first time I have ever told the story Since I came into this village ; In that time the apple blossoms Twenty times have hung in fragrance, Twenty times the fruit has ripened And been gathered to the garner. " Yes — we lived within a cabin In Vermont, the state of mountains; And I grew to be a maiden Playing there in wood and clearing. Just beyond, within the valley, Was another modest cabin Wherein lived a youth so handsome, Ways so kind, and manly manners — That to see him was to love him. Often came he to our cabin, There he told that old sweet story, Told it ' neath the mellow moonlight, When the stars were twinkling brightly. As alone we wandered often — And the world to us was Eden. " But the soil was poor and stony, And ' twas hard to wrest a living From that clime so cold and sullen. So with many days of thinking. Many evenings spent in planning, Bade we each farewell one morning. And he set his young face westward " It is not art but heart, which wins the MILLIDEK T ' ward the Illinoian prairies. After weary weeks of travel Over there he picked a home-site, Labored long to break the tough sod, Raise a crop, and rear a cabin — So that Father then would let him Bring me to tins western country. Bring me to the home he ' d builded, Thereby prove indeed he loved me. " When the summer sun was sultry And the lowlands of the prairies. Filled the air with sickly poisons Fell my brave lad with a fever — So he died — his neighbors wrote me — Talking of me, and his cabin. On that high place in the prairie There they broke the sod and laid him, He the first in all that graveyard. Where SO ' many now are lying. Then when Father and when Mother Both had passed beyond the portals. Came I to this western village, Here to toil and make a living. Visit oft the grave of that one Who till death to me was faithful. And to him shall I be likewise. " As she ceased, the apple blossoms From the old tree drifted downward. And the air was rife with fragrance As we wandered home in silence. — James M.

The purpose of the organization is to control joint enterprises and to dispose of such other matters as concern both societies. The inter-society contest is probably the event which led directly to the organization. This contest is strictly an inter-society affair, the contestants being solely from the two societies. Regarding it from this standpoint, the two societies felt that they should be permitted to control the contest and reap-the reward, if reward there be. The result of inter-socety control of the contest was evident by the good spirit manifested by the two societies. The two worked together harmoniously and the feeling of bitter rivalry, which had crept in just a little, was crowded out. The two societies shared equally the profits of the contest, and were thus enabled to place themselves on a good financial standing. Joint programs are occasionally held under the supervision of the League. This permits a program consisting of the best talent of the two societies, making it unusually strong and help- ful. The League is deeply interested in seeing a strong member- ship in both societies. Either society would be weak in the absence of a competitor, but both societies have been greatly strengthened by the partial union as brought about by the League. The following officers were elected for the year of 1909-1910 : Second Semester . Leo Brown . Philip McGrath . Mildred Elder .

It is planned to have lectures upon different phases of Home Economics during the year. The regular meetings occur the first Tuesday of each month.

A battery of four 125 horse power, fire tube, Atlas Boilers is installed in the east room. These boilers furnish steam for the heating of the buildings and for the running of the engines. During the cold days of winter this room presents a busy scene. Why should it not, when from three hundred to three hundred and fifty tons of coal are burned monthly during the severe weather ? The two engines and dynamos are installed in the other room.. " The Little Girl, " a o ' xio " Chuse Engine, directly con- nected with 25 K. W. Wood Generator, is the pride of the en- gineers. She is to be depended upon and the men have perfect confidence in her. Why? For the same reason that a teamster has confidence in his team, or a man has confidence in his family horse. Great was the sorrow when " The Little Girl " died on Feb. 5, 1910. Died? Yes. Her crosshead broke, knocked her stuffing-box cut and forced the piston through her cylinder head. " Big Liz, " the other engine, is an Ames, directly connected to a 50 K. W. General Electric Generator. The engineers do- not have much confidence in " Big Liz. " She is too much like a " Missouri Mule. " One minute she may be trotting along smoothly, and the next she may be galloping or cutting all kinds of capers. But with kind words and gentle touches ( with a hammer or a wrench), the men generally keep her going The dynamos furnish the light for all the buildings, as well as the power for the motors used in the different departments. The dynamos must carry their greatest load on the evening of Exhibition Day, when they are run at nearly full load. There must be no " hitches " at this time, for all the light and power used comes from them. E. V. Chapman (better known as " Chappie " ) is the chief engineer. " Chappie " received his engineering training in the Apprentice Course of the University, and, as has been said, " grew into the position of chief engineer. " E. D. Nitchals, of the class of 1910, is the Assistant Engineer. " Nitch " has held that position for three years ; at the same time taking the Electrical Engineering Course. How man} ' of the students have spent at least tbirtv minutes in those two rooms — the rooms, from which come the light, power and heat, without which our scholastic work would be nearly an impossibility during the winter months? If you have not visited the Plant, do so before you again " knock " on the heat and light. Visit the Plant and ask questions of the engineer. Notice his work and possibly you will see a few things that will cause you to forgive him for the lack of heat, that day last winter when you shivered a little while listening to that lecture on " Cal. " or that discussion on " DeQuincy as an Opium Eater. " " Wonder if some students couldn ' t get more out of sunshine than moonshine.

Confidence in MiHikin ' s Athletic prowess, which had reached a low point, had been renewed by Mr. Ashmore ' s return to the University and the coming season was looked forward to with great expectations. The final outcome more than realized these hopes. was exceedingly sharp and fast, leaving both sides with mingled feelings of chagrin and joy. Hoover, a new man in the bine and white, who had shown ability, was injured during the early part of this game and forced to retire for the remainder of tile season. The game with Washington University at St. Louis wa s a disappointment from the view point of score, but displayed the The result of the opening game with the University of Illinois at Urbana indicated that the team had ability and should successfully cope with the remainder of its schedule. Altho the final score was heavily against us, Millikin more than held her own during the first half, making in all a very satisfactory show- ing. ddie Lake Forest team, which was met on the Millikin field the following Saturday, were strong and fast and came on the field full of confidence, anticipating an easy victory. It was soon apparent that the teams were fairly well matched and the game splendid mettle of the team when they played without a sign of quitting until the close of the game, although it could easily be seen that there was no possibility of winning against the decisions of the referee. Trick plays and forward passes were a feature of the Knox game, the winning of which was practically due to the excel- lence of the Millikin team in these plays. During this game and the rest of the season Millikin ' s play was characteristically modern. Charleston Normal having canceled a date, Lincoln College " Ao- e cannot wither, nor custom stale, her infinite variety. " — Blanche Redmon. 170 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK was played at Lincoln, the game being easily secured by Millikm. The result of the next game, which was with Monmouth College at Monmouth, was very gratifying to Millikin supporters, as we had never before been able to beat Monmouth and had twice lost the championship of the state to them. Weslevan came with a strong team and a good record and justified the apprehension that had been raised by holding Millikin to a low score. Although Millikin played a good game, the work of the team lacked the championship form that had been characteristic of the entire season heretofore. Shurtleff was a dark horse, for although it was understood that they had a strong team, nothing could be gathered from the " dope. " This game was a fitting climax for the season. Shurt- leff depended almost entirely upon the old style of play, while Millikin played modern football throughout the game, excelling in the forward pass and onside kick. The outcome was very doubtful until the close of the game, Millikin securing the extra points by the ability of Reeter to kick goal. The weather was ideal and the attendance was the largest in the history of the in- stitution. We feel justified in praising the excellent work of Captain Richmond, whose consistent, nervy playing was not excelled by any man on the team. Hamilton, the only senior on the team, who for three years had been one of our most heady, consistent players, closed his football career with a season of brilliant play- ing. He was awarded a position on the All-State team by a num- ber of authorities. Ours is a most confused world. " — Math Class. 171 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK ersJonnel of tfje ®eam ROY HAMILTON " Hammy " has been the standby of the Millikin team for four seasons. He has been tried in several positions and made good in every one. His punting has made him a valuable man in many games in which punting was strongly relied upon. He has been equally successful in hand- ling the forward pass. Innumerable times " Hammy " has succeeded in tackling an opponent who had broken through the line and was making rapid progress to- wards the goal line. He owes the largest percent of his long end runs and touch- downs to his efficient use of the " straight- arm, " which is almost invincible. Hammy has been awarded a place on the All-State Eleven by reliable critics. He is a gradu- ate this year and Millikin suffers the loss of her strongest man. CHARLES RICHMOND Captain Richmond not only proved himself to be an efficient captain, but also to be an efficient halfback. He played, however, on the defense, part of the sea- son. His playing was marked by his con- sistent line bucking, and his faculty for making holes. He has played three seasons and has never been taken from a game on account of injury. " Begone dull care, thou and I shall never ag 172 ree. " — Marie . JOHN JOHNSTON " Big John " showed his ability in the past season at left tackle. He played every game with a de- termination to win. He weighs 1 80 pounds and promises to be one of the stars in the coming season. Johnston was also awarded a pos- ition on the All-State Eleven. He has been chosen captain for the team of 1910. GROVER YODER Yoder found his place at right tackle, and played a consistent game. He is unusually successful in making holes in the line, and in breaking up plays. Yoder is the " big man " of the team, weighing 190 pounds. He was awarded a position as tackle on the All- State team by Coach Ashmore. NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK FRED WASEM " Fritz " comes from Alton, where he has had some experience on the Western Military team. He is speedy and played a hard game at his position at right end. He succeeded in recovering an on- side kick which won the game from Wesleyan. WACASER Wacaser comes to ns from Illi- nois, where he payed on the fresh- man team. He found his place at left guard and played a persistent game. He has plenty of weight, and knows where and when to use it. Wacaser should have no trouble in being one of the stars in the coming season. FLOYD PERRY Perry, cmarterback. guided the team towards the coveted goal- line with a success worth}- of comment. His judgment is excel- lent, and he usually sees the best move. Perry is the smallest man on the team, weighing 130 pounds; his tackling, nevertheless, is sure and effective. CRANSTON Cranston aided the team much by his encouragement and by getting them in physical con- dition for the hard games. He is an efficient instructor in Box- ing and a thorough student of physical condition. Besides his knowledge of Boxing he thor- oughly understands Foot Ball, having previously trained the Urbana High School Champion- ship Eleven. He is a man of great spirit and enthusiasm and fires the men to strenuous effort. " The forced smile which we put on in company " — Flarvey Wood. 173 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK WILLARD GEAREN " Wiley " is probably one of the best men Millikin has ever had at center. He is fast and plays a hard and consistent game. We are expecting great things from Wiley in the coming season. RAY RHINES " Babe " is another one of those big fellows whose defense is like a stonewall. He is fast develop- ing into a good player. He played guard most of the time and will have no trouble in holding that position throughout the season of 1910. GUY NICHOLS " Nic " comes to us from E. I. S. N. S. He played a strong game from beginning to end. He was unusually gifted with the ability of being at the right place at the right time. He was sure in his tackles, and efficient with the for- ward pass. Coach Ashmore places him at end on the All-State Eleven. WILLIAM REETER " Big Bill " has rapidly devel- oped into a valuable player. He played guard most of the season, and guarded his position with zeal. Bill is able to keep the ball located throughout the game and when a fumble is made he is usually there. He kicked the goals which won the Thanksgiving game from Shurt- leff. We are placing much con- fidence in Bill for the coming season. ' The little mite thinks itself the whole cheese.

With a lack of coaching and insufficient practice be- cause of inclement weather our team did not reach its usual standard. Coach Hoopes ' first call for material was answered by twenty-five men— contestants for position on the team. Several old men were back, with plenty of new material to fill in. Results were fruitless. The spirit manifested was lacking both in earnest- ness and true college fight. In brief, Baseball results were the same as shown in other lines of sport. Our schedule opened with a practice game with Illinois. We were severely defeated, but the game proved beneficial in many ways. Among the ten games scheduled a possible four were played owing to unconditioned weather and canceled con- tracts. Millikin Baseball fans do not care to relate the past but are looking forward with hopes for a winning team in 1910. We know " Jimmy Ashmore " both as to what he can and will do. Therefore results will be shown. Several " M " men are in school, including Capt. Reeter, Smith, Johnson, Wilkins, Ham- ilton, and Wasem, constituting the nucleus around which to build a new team. Nichols, Garvey, Starr, Wacaser, Taylor, Turpin and Lewis, are new men who have entered school with reputations. The twirling department looks strong with Freeman, Nem, Wacaser, pitcher last year on Varsity Freshmen at U. of I., and Welsh, a local Y. M. C. A. man.

Davenport, captain of the team, and point win- ner in the clashes, was unable to participate in track events. Elmo and Waldo Drake, middle distance runners, two of the strongest men on the team, entered the University of Illinois. Dun Wallace, who made a good showing in the long distance runs in 1908, was unable to take part. With these conditions and only a remnant of the old team, the outlook was a little discouraging. The team began work in earnest, however, and some very valuable new material was dis- covered. Tom Myers entered the field events and strengthened the heretofore weak point in the team. He was easily the point winner of the season and promises to break one of Millikin ' s records in the coming season. He succeeded in winning the inter-collegiate hammer throw at Peoria. Edgar Smith, a new man in the dashes, won his share of the points, and is a very promising man fur the coming team. L. N. Myers made good in the broad and high jump. Myers is a new man and made a close second for Veirs. Carl Brunsman made a good successor to Shumway in the Pole Vault. Moody, a new man, was ver y efficient in the long distance runs. The first meet of the season was scheduled at Terre Haute, being a tri-meet between Rose Poly, Indiana State Normal and Millikin. The meet was called off after three events, on account of rain, Millikin holding second place. Veirs was chosen as tem- porary captain to preside over this meet, and was later elected captain to succeed Davenport. On the 22d of May the team lost to Wesleyan at Blooming- ton by a score of 69 to 42 . Veirs was the individual star of the meet, making a total of 18 points. Millikin sent five athletes, Veirs, T. B. Myers, L. N. Myers, Edgar Smith and Brunsman, to the second annual inter-collegiate track and field meet at Peoria, May 29th. T. B. Myers won the hammer throw with a record-breaking throw. Total number of points made by Millikin was 7 1-3, placing her in sixth place. The last meet of the season was held on Millikin field, with Illinois College on June 5th. Millikin lost with a score of 84 J to 27 Y , winning only two first places. T. B. Myers won the hammer throw with a big margin and Edgar Smith placed first in the 440 yard dash.

The team had a schedule including the fastest minor college teams in the state, and acquitted itself nobly, winning four out of the seven games played. One of these victories was over Illinois College, a team which had a record of not losing a game until Millikin turn- ed the tide. During the losing period the first of the season, not a mem- ber of the team can be accused of quitting. Every man played with all his strength from beginning to end. The men who played the season through deserve credit, both for their steady playing, and for missing their supper every practise evening. Coach J. N. Ashmore deserves much praise for the success- ful season. When he took charge of the squad, many of the boys had never looked inside of a rule-book. Nevertheless, from these the coach made a winning team, the first in the history of Millikin. The students supported the team this year better than ever before, and for the first time the manager is not compelled to report a large deficit. There is only one thing lacking to make a championship team here next year, and that is a gymnasium. With a gym- nasium the team will have more time to practise, and the mem- bers will not be compelled to join the Decatur Y. M. C. A. in order to get a try out for the team. Let every student boost for a gymnasium ! " Woman is fickle and always changeable. " — Bee McConnel. 188 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK OR the first time in recent years Millikin, is able to boast of a well organized tennis tournament between the faculty and student body. Early in the fall, the three courts were put in first class shape, and every day saw them full of prospective champions. The tournament was arranged through the efforts of B. H. Buck, to decide the rivalry between the members of the faculty and the student body. Both sides had a number of proficient wielders of the racquet. The matches throughout were evenly and closely contested ; it was often a single serve that decided the game and set. Owing to the inclemency of the weather, the tournament was brought to a close before all of the finals had been played. At the time of closing, the students were ahead in the singles with a score of 6 to 5. Wallace, as expected, proved himself the star in singles for the students, while among the faculty members, Olds and Woodruff played the best game. The playing of these two men was a fine exhibition of the game. The former perhaps used better judgment in the game than any other player, while the latter played the most scientific game ever seen on the local courts. In the doubles, the faculty members were in the lead by score of 13 to 11. At the close of the season Olds and Rugg held first place, with Mills, Gunnison, Cole and Woodruff closely following. Wallace and Long proved the best student team, with Buck and Aurand second. With the interest taken in the fall in tennis, it is to be hoped and expected that from now on Millikin will have her share of point w inners in a series of inter-collegiate tennis tournaments. We can easily find a place in such a tournament if we but pro- duce a team that such a contest would demand. ' O, the world hath not a sweeter creature.

D.. in the year of wonder- ful discoveries and marvelous happenings, an instrument was in- vented which surpassed in ingenuity and accuracy of operation any machine constructed within several decades. Professor John E. Rouse, of the Department of Psychological Investigation, is the fortunate but modest originator of said invention, and it is through his earnest endeavors that the Psychic X-ray machine has been installed in the James Millikin University. " Professor Rouse, in experimenting with it, found that minds " most suscep- tible to its influence were those at an advanced stage of maturity and development, and consequently, the best results could be ob- tained by " probing " the minds of Seniors, disclosing to view the innermost contents of their brains, and especially, the main ideas found therein. It was our good fortune to unearth certain data which our methodical professor had acquired during his in- vestigations and we quote directly from his documents: " Item 1. Only such data can be focused on magic screen as are clearly and distinctly portrayed in original specimen. " Item 2. Certain data discovered of rare and individual quality — a great index to character of victim. " Item 3. The greater the brain capacity, the less the number of ideas found therein, and vice versa. " Item 4. A prevailing tendency discovered in species of male sex to have ' ladies on the brain ' . " Following data collected from brains of members of class of 1910. (N. B. In certain cases the victim was conscious of investigation and responded by immediate presentation of pre- vailing idea; in others, unconscious response, resulting in mere focusing of certain relevant facts pertaining to character, occu- pation, etc. ) : Amrstrong— Domesticity, without, however, any evidence of the tender emotions or longings toward a " home of her own— " Senior pedigrees.

It is the culmina- tion of several years of effort upon the part of the Monkey citizens of Jungle- town to raise funds for the erection of, the Johnnie Monkey University which now stands in the western part of our city as a monument to the cause of loftier learning. When the dedication committee learned that the eminent Teddy Roosevelt was to tour Africa, they immediately got in communication with him, asking that his itinerary be planned to go through Jungletown and that he sojourn in this city long enough to deliver the dedicatory address of the Johnnie Monkey University. The committee was very much gratified to receive his willing acceptance and since then have spared no efforts in elaborate planning of the dedication exercises which were carried out so successfully and satisfactorily today. Great crowds began coming to this city very earlv in the day to attend the exercises. Large delegations of monkeys and other student creatures came from the sister colleges in this section of the country. Besides these, great companies of country and forest inhabitants arrived. Among the distinguished guest ' s were Dr. Jocko, Professor of Modern languages at Congo College and President Gorilla of Monkeyburg Normal School. The entire faculty of Lionlair High School attended the dedication in a body. the crowds of animal creatures viewed the During the day ' My life is like a stroll upon the beach.

Every one seemed much pleased with the school and there was much favorable com- ment upon the architectural beauty of the buildings. Early in the afternoon, the crowds gathered about the temporary platform on the campus and lined up along the ropes forming a long aisle to this platform. On each side within the large aisles were two smaller aisles rescued for the grade school pupils. Very early these smaller aisles were filled with chattering, screeching, howling young Africa Each of the little creatures carried a flag, while some ot the monkeys were decorated with the University colors. Teddy Roosevelt ' s private caravan arrived at the University campus a ' few minutes before time. He was assisted from his camel by President Ourangoutang of J. M. U., who having met Teddy previously, immediately introduced him to the other mem- bers of the committee. Then turning up the aisle formed by he lines of anxious spectators, Prexy Ourangoutang showed Ins absolute friendliness by grabbing Teddy ' s arm and marching toward the platform. As they proceeded, the throng sent up a rousing howl, while young Africa lacerated the air with flags. Teddy pleased at the uproar, bowed profusely and showed his pearly teeth. Upon arriving at the platform, Prexy introduced Teddy to the officials and then the two, after being seated, had a private consultation. The dedication program opened with musical numbers. Miss Jennie Hippo sang, " If I had a Dolly Like Mother Has Me accompanied by Mr. Harolda Elephant on the piano. Mr. Huermann Lion gave a piano solo, rendering vei T pleasing y " No Wedding Bells for Me, " in original variations. Then leddy was introduced and as he rose to give his address, the assembly howled. Prexy flapped his hand at the multitude and the ors stopped long enough to allow Teddy to begin Ins speech Only a few heard him, but at the proper moments Prexy would flapp his hand and the crowd took the cue to cheer. Teddy said he appreciated the privilege of dedicating the J. M U and that he desired to express his deepest regard for such public spirited Africans who made the University a reality He further remarked upon the industrial features of the school and ' Every man thinks his own geese swans. " — T. Ben Wand. 221 NINETEEN TEN MILLIDEK how truly African it was in this particular. He left this admon- ition to students : that they could only hope to repay the donors of the University by their good African citizenship. Then he spoke of the beauty of the buildings with the tall tower crowning them all. ( At this point, the freshman class got together and de- cided that when they were seniors, they would place a clock in the tower, which memorial should stand as a symbol of their pro- gressiveness). After finishing his speech, Teddy, accompanied by Prexy, marched back again through the applauding aisle. Elephants were waiting at the further end of the aisle, upon which the dedication party rode through the principal streets of Jungletown. One of the pleasing effects during the parade ■ v.., J- „ fa was a ,ittle act by some monkeys. A - ' group of youngsters had grasped each other s tads and then swung across the street from opposite trees in a chain. As Teddy ' s elephant passed under the monkey loop, one of them; dropped a big bunch of flowers in his lap. Teddy was pleased and rewarded their efforts with several broad grins. During the procession, Teddy paid compliments to Prexy Ourangoutang and the city of Jungletown. He told Prexy that he intended to go on a hunting trip in Amer- ica m a few years and he promised to send some stuffed human beings for the University Museum. He said that he knew of some peculiar fossil species in central Illinois and that he would try to get specimens of the old fossils for the University phre- nology course. Prexy replied that he was indeed grateful for the very kind offer and he was certain the gift would be of great aid in teaching that particular phase of the subject. Teddy departed early this evening with his special caravan. As he mounted his camel he made a short speech to the effect that his reception in Jungletown was very pleasant and he had been thoroughly de-e-lighted. " Though I am humble, slight me not.

It was founded in 1901, by the man whose name the University bears, with a view of providing instruction in the usual academic and collegiate subjects, and also, as far as possible, in those industrial, technical, commercial and art lines for which there is now such urgent demand. It was his purpose to establish an institution of learning under the supervision of a Chris- tian denomination where, at the least possible expense, all classes of young men and women could secure an education that would fit them for entering at once upon some honorable vo- cation in life. The Academy offers courses preparing students for entrance to the School of Liberal Arts of the collegiate department of the Uni- versity or to the leading colleges and univer- sities of this country; for entrance to the special and technical departments of the same, and, for those who do not desire to take more advanced work in the colleges, an excellent training in certain trades and for business life. The College offers a great variety of re- quired and elective courses in the different Schools of 1, Liberal Arts; 2, Engineering, A Glimpse at ' the Hall of Liberal Arls Civil, Electrical and Mechanical:: 3. Domestic Science and Domestic Art; 4, Commerce and Finance; 5, Fine and Applied Arts; 6, Vocal and Instrumental Music; 7, Pedagogy; and 8, Library Science. Their inter-relationship offers rare opportunities for electives to all classes of students. Its five new and thoroughly up-to-date buildings with complete modern equipment are located In an attractive campus of thirty-five acres which has long been noted for its beauti- ful forest trees. The city of Decatur is very healthful, is centrally located, and is every- where recognized as a most desirable home for a modern college. The enrollment the first year, 1903-4, was 712. It has steadily increased until the total attendance last year reached 1,052, with a fac- ulty of sixty members. It is coeducational, maintaining equal standards for men and women. Aston Hall offers delightful accom- modations for young women at reasonable rates. Both young men and women find pleas- ant accommodations in the many Christian homes in the western part of the city. Cata- logs and bulletins of the different schools will be promptly sent on application. Kindly state in which one interested. Address A. R. TAYLOR, President, Decatur, 111.

The peopie of today are more rapid than their ancestors; they must be rapid or get lost in the grand shuffle for business. The railroads have endeavored to keep pace with the times and have succeeded admirably, but none have progressed as has the greatest electric railroad in the world, . . ... The Illinois Traction System (The McKinley Lines) THIS Electric Railroad System, with its 500 miles of track, covering the greatest commercial territory in the United States, has placed at the disposal of the people the finest passenger and freight service ever given the public. This railroad runs first-class passenger trains in all directions every hour. Its freight service is equal in every way to the old line express, for it makes first day delivery of St Louis and Chicago freight to every station on the system. For particulars as to freight and passenger rates, maps, folders, etc., address G. W. QUACKENBUSH, Traffic Manager, SPRINGFIELD, ILL. " With many a social virtue graced.
