MORNING v ] MIIvl V ' ; | 7 MORNING HE blushing dawn peeps slyly through the trees And busy day sweeps from the murky sky The cobwebs of the night. A fragrant breeze Makes music in the leaves, while up on high The tower is touched with gold. The honest clock Starts up apace his weary lagging round. ( Then stops anon as solid as a rock- To ponder on the flight of time. ) A sound Breaks, echoing forth a footstep. Then the door Is opened. Soon with wandering steps, or fast, . Come students, seekers of the treasured lore Of days gone by ; and of these not the last A figure, old slouch hat atop — goes in With steps assured. The swarming corridor Grows orderly. The daily tasks begin. Ah ! h ' appy days that come for us no more. A wide-eyed child sits wondering in the sun. Strange world it is to him ! What terrors wait He knows not. Life is just begun for him And blossoms forth in joy and peace, and light.

During the years in which we have been permitted to occupy the center of this little stage, we appeared before you on many occasions, and in many different lights. This time, however, we come to leave with you our last and greatest gift; yet not so much ours as yours, for have you not all a share in it? In this one volume, the fruit of many days of careful thought and loving anxiety, we give to you, our friends and inspiration, a faithful record of our common striving for the common goal. Although the years which we have spent together have been all too brief, although in a little while you will have forgotten some or all of us, yet in this book we leave with you a friend who will always speak for us, who will constantly remind you of the old joys and sorrows, the old hopes and aspirations which we once cherished with a common heart. Our time grows short, our college life is nearly over; though for some of you it has but begun. Take, then, this last gift at our hand; let the dead past live again as you read it and grant to us, its authors, at least the tribute of a pleasant memory. From the class of 1912, dear friends, greeting, and then farewell! — The Editors. nsa i r— — u nn MIU4DEK Eleven THE MILLIDEK BOARDS Editor-in-Chief BOARD OF MANAGERS. Norma L. Council.

Educators are lie- ginning to realize that, after all, a special education must be built on a general foundation. The foun- dation should not be narrow for the superstructure may over-balance it. It should be broad and deep enough to support the most elaborate special study. This foundation is obtained in the School of Liberal Arts. Here the doctor may obtain a general knowledge before taking a course in some medical school. He is brought in touch with the main activities of his own times by the courses in Lan- guage, History, Science and Mathematics. Although it may prevent his practicing as soon as he otherwise would, he is much better prepared. We find that most of the teachers are A.B. students. They can also enter newspaper work, and we find they fill most of the responsible positions in the publishing houses. The preacher, lawyer, or business man will find it of great benefit to take this course before specializing in his own pa r t i cula r profession . Any clanger that the Liberal Arts at Millkin may be too general is eliminated by the requirement that one must major in some special subject which he himself must choose. Beside this the student must take one year each in Mathematics, His- tory and Science and two years in some foreign language. The other half of the course is elective but one-half of the work in the Junior and Senior years must be in advanced sub- jects. This effectually prevents overspecialization. Twenty-five ]QD MIL Twenty-seven 2S UUIL THE GYMNASIUM HE new gymnasium, constructed during the past year, is a building well fitted by its beauty and substantial appearance to stand with the other handsome structures of the University group. The Elizabethan architecture of the original group of buildings is followed out in the design of the gym- nasium. Its attractive lines are quite similar to those of the older structures. The plans, as they have been carried out, give a gymna- sium that is complete in every detail. Every convenience which will make possible the most efficient handling of all forms of athletics has been included in the carefully construct- ed building. Locker rooms and shower baths, for the men and women, have been adequately supplied. The physical directors are well looked after in their conveniently arranged offices. The gymnasium proper affords ample space for playing indoor games and for class work. The room is well lighted by small windows on every side and a big skylight above. The ventilation is carefully arranged. The whole structure meets a need that has been strongly felt at Millikin since the first athletic efforts were undertaken. That the students appreciate their good fortune in having such a building is evidenced by the enthusiasm with which they set to work to raise money for its equipment. Henceforth, the gymnasium will probably be one of the chief buildings of student activities. The arrangement is such that the building is not limited to the athletic uses alone, but it can also be conveniently utilized for student social functions. The presence of the gymnasium on the campus should prove a healthy stimulus to democracy and school spirit.

The demand for teachers who- have taken courses in special training for their work grows apace with each succeeding year. It is particularly strong for teachers who have completed courses in profes- sional training as well as the courses for the college degree. The special courses offered include Elementary Psy- chology, Child Study, Methods of Teaching, the Art of School Management, the Philosophy of Education, History of Edu- cation, and theoretical and practical courses in subjects in which the student is wishing to specialize, as Domestic Sci- ence, Modern Language, Ancient Language, Fine and Applied Arts, Music, Manual Training, etc. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction recog- nizes this work in his annual circular, and candidates for the state certificate who have received the degree for courses including professional work will be given the same recogni- tion as graduates of the state institutions of learning, which means that such persons are only required to pass examina- tions in English, Educational Psychology. Principles and Methods of Teaching, and theses on such elementary school and secondary school problems, as the particular certificate may require. For a state supervisory certificate the History of Education is included, together with a satisfactory thesis on a problem of school administration. The degree which is offered those taking the four years ' course is that of Bachelor of Science with Pedagogy. There are received at the office, probably three or four times as many calls for teachers who have completed these courses, as can be filled. The demand for professionally trained teachers of the better sort grows every year and many of our graduates are going out to very desirable positions at fine salaries.

Thirty-seven u □ T HE SCHOOL OF COMMERCE AND FINANCE Caput est in Omni Negotio, Nos ERE as early as the first century we have the prov- ince of the ' Commerce and Finance School recog- nized Said Roman tells us that " the most import- ant thing in any business is to know what should be done " and the last catalogue says virtually the same thing. Therefore we may he fairly certain m assuming that the School is founded on well recog- nized principles. _ . Generalizing, we may say that the functions of this de- partment are two in number. First, to give a high grade of scientific business training. Second, to develop a broad out- look of life, as well as to establish sound mental habits As to the first, the obviously increasing complexity of our busi- ness and financial methods, and the eminent success of college trained men therein, and the ever increasing demand tor sci- entific business men, in excess of the constantly growing sup- ply, is sufficient argument. ' While the second point is a little more hackneyed and abstract, it is, nevertheless, as important as the first. It can ;e Quid Agendum Sit.— Columella. scarcely be questioned that such subjects as Economics Public Finance and Sociology, have a broadening effect on the men- tal vision Likewise Elementary and Commercial Law Eco- nomic Problems, and other social studies, tend toward close and abstract thinking, in leading to large interest and use- fulness in life. . T , Mere mention must suffice for the equipment. The school is well up to the standard of the other schools m the institution. The Faculty is well known The Museum and the Library are well chosen, and are steadily expanding Also, he organization designated as the Com-Fu, Associa ion ,s when in running order, one of the most important satellites connected with the institution. As might be expected, the Com.-Fin. Department appeals more strongly to the men, altho women are no strangers to some of the class in the school. The course offered _as com- plete in itself, leading in four years to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce and Finance; which degree is, as we have inferred, as immediately and permanently useful as any granted by the University.

The purpose of the School is Similar to that of other schools in the University, in that it is educating the student for life The acquirement of skill along certain lines of science, art and economics, in the course outlined, is of value, but of still greater importance is the ability gained to apply this skill to the practical problems of life in home and school. This increases the skill of the student in any line of work. This encouragement of clean and concise thinking, 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 relate to public hygiene and sanitation, connects the school life with that 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 is given to prepare the student for two lines of work. The first is that of home-making, in which the ma- jority of women are engaged. The second, that of teaching the various phases of the spbjects in the school. The latter is given in a normal course in which practice teaching is re- quired. The equipment of the school is unusually complete. On the first floor of the east wing are the rooms devoted to Do- mestic Art. Looms and all the appliances for giving an in- sight into the primitive, as well as the modern methods of the manufacture of various textiles, are included in this equip- ment. There are also 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 nursing, and the other lines included under the subject. □ □ For ' .y one Forty-Uro SCHOOL OF Albert R.

The need of tools, machines, vehicles ot transportation, and the power to drive them, led to the invention and use of numerous me- cTnical devices to serve the requirements. The demands for tools of operation became more and more complex as the ° development became systematized into vast industries The attempts to suSS these demands are responsible for our earlier Engineering InTsS the first school of emigrants in the United States was established It provided for the theoretical and scientific study of SSneTring problems. The students of the profession have since mas red the situation until today the Engineer applies theory to " ract caf problems and presents results that revolutionize commei- S methods and give to civilization conveniences heretofore believed " " Lhffounclers of the James Millikin University recognized the value of industrial and technical training, hence the organization provided for a School of Engineering co-ordinate with the other deplr tments The popularity of the school is attested by the fact that of seven schools it is exceeded in number of graduates only by the school of Liberal Arts. However, the Board of Managers decided m June 1911, to dis- continue the Junior and Senior courses after 191,. t is the purpose of the management to offer two-year courses of such a character 1 1 upon completing them, students can enter regularly the Junior classes o the best Engineering schools. If this plan proves a suc- cess the Department offers several advantages to the prospective student He avoids the overcrowded under classes of the large I nical school.

Power Plant was the scene of more work than usual during the winter of 191 1 and ' 12, not only because it was an extra cold winter but the steam mains, light and power cables were being put into the new gymnasium and the Con- servatory of Music. The record for burning coal at the J. M. U. plant, was broken during the month of January, 1912, 611 tons of coal §■ consumed during the one month.

There will he some change made in the engine room, on the engines, pumps, generator and switchboard. An additional engine and generator will be necessary to furnish the light and power for the new buildings. Erroll V. Chapman, chief engineer, is serving his third year in that position. During the two years previous, he was a student in the J. M. U. engineering department. Floyd Bricker, assistant engineer, is a student in the manual training department and was a former student in the engineering department. Other students who are worthy of mention, who help make the fire burn, the whistle blow and the wheels go, are Ollie Thompson, Harry Small wood, Conant Taylor and Homer Bricker.

Forty-nine I THE SCHOOL OF LIBRARY SCIENCE N OTHER year has passed and again the interesting- growth of the Library may be measured. A few glances will convince one of its increase. Thirty- one volumes of Warner ' s Library of the World ' s Best Literature, Monroe ' s Encyclopaedia of Educa- tion, five volumes of Baldwin ' s Dictionary of Phil- osophy and Psychology, are among the most notice- able inches added. Friends have shown their interest in the development and aided its growth by gifts. Mrs. Hawkins presented the late Mr. Hawkins ' entire Theological Library, and Albert Putney, Dean of the Chicago College of Law, has given his valuable Law Library of twelve volumes. The broadening of the Library is not so evident, but a visit to the east end of the lower corridor will show this development. In a room there, are to be found about five hundred bound public documents, besides innumerable unbound magazines, pamph- lets, and other valuable material. The Department of Library Scienece hopes to use this room also as a work room in the future. It is not possible that the Library should increase in size without adding a few pounds to its weight. To take the place of the four graduates who were sacrificed last year for its reputation, the Library Science Department has gained three members, and hopes to add two more this second semester. In this measurement of development, the mental growth must be considered. Most characteristic of this is a list of books drat was compiled, after much hard work and many consultations, by the Librarian. The list covers the whole field of knowl- edge. All students of the Library Science Department must read one book from each of the six groups in the list, every year. Anyone seeking a good reading list may find this splen- did one in the Official University Bulletin. So the Library has grown and does not show any ten- dency to stop; indeed, it has already far outgrown its present quarters.

A similar line of work is in contemplation for the Fine Arts Classes, not with the object of commercializing the cours- es, hut rather to prove their actual value in the activities of life in the face of competition. This is the underlying motive of the school. The work of the School of Fine and Applied Arts in this direction can he accurately estimated by the work of the grad- uates and former students. A number of these are now act- ively engaged in supervising or teaching in the cities of the state or in commercial art lines with newspapers or department stores. Our students are readily admitted to advanced stand- ing in any of the older art schools of the country, indicating a thorough theoretical and technical training " . Fifty-three HE general character of the courses offered by the School of Fine and Applied Arts is now generally understood, but the new activity of the Applied Arts Classes in a different phase of work may be of interest. 1 As an accurate test of the practical value of the work of the Junior and Senior Applied Arts Classes, it was decided to select some special process of artistic decoration, apply it to some marketable product and test the value of the same by placing the product on sale in different cities throughout the country. In accord with this line of activity, fobs, pins of various kinds, and other articles of jewelry were placed in four cities in Illinois, two in Maine, one in North Carolina, four in Flor- ida and one in Cuba, the city of Havana. The scope of opera- tions will be extended until the sales are sufficient to afford remunerative support to a number of students.

Fifty-seven MILLI KIN CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC Millikin Conservatory of Music is an ideal place for music study because of the following advantages : Not Conducted for Profit— This is not a money mak- ing institution. All the income is devoted to the furtherance of musical education. That is why it gives more free instruc- tion than other schools. Tuition Fees Very Low— One-third to one-half those charo-ed for similar instruction in Boston or New York. Faculty— Twenty-five members of superior ability, pro- fessors selected with great care in Europe and this country. Methods— Most scientific and modern. Standards— The highest, educational and artistic. Concerts, Recitals, Lectures— Great orchestras, art- ists, lecturers presented each year. Diplomas and Certificates— Granted on completion of specified courses. Teachers ' Training Department— Piano, Voice, Vio- lin Public School Music. Teachers ' Certificates and Diplomas. ' Enrollment — -College Year 1910-191 1-623 students. The steady gain m numbers has been remarkable, but far more important has been the splendid development of the stud- ents in artistic growth and general education. Fifty-eight □ □Lt JU J7J Fifty- nine D MILUDEK 1912 ID □ □U THE NEW CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC BUILDING HE new building to be entirely devoted to the need of the Conservatory of Music is now being erected. It has a beautiful location on the southwestern part of the University campus with a very large lawn on all sides. The design is in the Elizabethan style of architecture to harmonize with the present univer- sity buildings. There will be 82 rooms, of which 32 will be teaching rooms for private lessons, 6 large class rooms for theoretical and other class work, 26 devoted to practice and study pur- poses 4 offices and administration rooms, 5 toilet rooms, library, rest room, cloak rooms, etc. A recital hall with capac- ity of -50 people will occupy the west wing on the first floor. The general architectural treatment of this hall ab of the whole interior, will be in pure Gothic style. The problem of a tone-proof construction was thoroly studied by the director before the new building was planned. Visits to the leading conservatories of America and corres- pondence with those in Europe, showed much to avoid and some good points which have been incorporated m the plans for the Millikin Conservatory. This building will be one of the most complete and effective for its special purposes, ever erected. Sixty-two n rF UnnLL: THE ACADEMY HE Academy is a delightful little world of its own, independent in many ways, and yet indissolubly joined to the larger college world. The students of the Academy have many of the advantages of the college students ; access to an excellent library, the gymnasium, christian associations, also the great advantage of a stimulating collegiate atmosphere. In these ways it is joined, but it has also its own separate ad- vantages and pleasures. Last year an Academy Literary Soci- ety was organized and it has prospered. In this the Academy students are supreme, and the experience and knowledge which they derive from it are of great benefit to them, and make them valuable additions to the college societies later. The main purpose of the Academy is a preparation for college. It is a course of four years which furnishes thorough training in all the lower branches with direct reference to the higher courses which the student will take up in college. But it is not only for those who expect to enter college. It also furnishes opportunity to pursue one or two academy studies offered to those who are specializing in Music and Fine Arts. In either case, however, it is fundamentally a school of prep- aration. Sixty-three UD£K1912 DDE □ □ □ □ 0 FACULTY OF ACADEMY Albert R. Taylor, Ph.D., LL.D., President. James D.

The very thought fills me with consternation and fear; a sense of my own unworthiness to write the annals of this never- to-be-forgotten class quite overwhelms me. Its deeds and misdeeds are far too numerous to tell, and its very worth, strength, competence and high ideals are beyond the power of my pen to describe. Think of its future ! Oh, ye glorious muse of History, grant me just one vision of the class of garnet and white. I lean back in my chair, close my eyes, and dreamily await the vision. It is late Summer and behold! I see a road, rough and hilly, stretching far before me. Entering the gateway I see a child clothed all in glistening white. There are tears in his eyes as he glances wistfully backwards, but nevertheless a hopeful far-seeing light is in them as he dimly descries the bright blue sea beyond. Look ! How resolutely he trudges over the rough places, tho one be marked with the fearful words " Math Exam, " and another — I can scarcely make out the name but the first letters seem to be De-G. Our child is growing sturdier and stronger with every step though now his brow is furrowed with worry as he labor- iously plods up the hill with S. Ex. in letters of fire glowing from its summit. But the way is not always hard, for lo ! Now he is sipping tea in a pleasant valley, and now he has joyously left the road, for a brief care-free visit in a delight- ful field adjoining, and thus he moves ever forward, happily, gloriously inspired by the magnificent views of the sea beyond that are seen from the hilltops of surmounting difficulty. Behold ! Our child, grown now to the stature of a youth, is lingering for an instant in a pleasant vale called " amo. " But no! He is starting on the way with hurried footsteps. And now before him, a table is set, abundantly laden with good things. What? Can it be a baseball and bat, I see in the center? Yes, and there are the bases, the whole diamond. As the youth turns to seat himself at the table, I see the numerals 1912 burning in the beautiful garnet letters across his breast. A little farther I see our youth clothed in a scholarly cap) and flowing black gown. How fair he is to look upon with his handsome, earnest face and his glad hopeful eyes ! Now before him arises a mountain, the greatest o f all, the steepest of all. He hears a cold business like voice say " next " and a blank horror creeps over his countenance. But see! He is picking up a note-book at the base of the mountain. In it are many questions, but lo! A calm smile lights up his face. Answers are there too ' , and better yet, they are followed by the authentic T. in parenthesis. Behold ! The sea is but a little distance beyond and now our youth is entering a little space at the end of the road, filled with the happiness of attained desire, the sadness of parting with friends, and memories of those golden days spent at Millikin. How short are four years to contain so much of the moulding of our lives ! What a brief preparation for the great beyond ! And yet, these days at Millikin have awakened in us a longing to know more and a great love for our Alma Mater. May we, strong men and women she has made us, help her in the near future as she has helped us in our College Days.

Well might the faithful tower clock have hesitated in its marking the hours, to gaze with admiration on the new comers. There were more than one hundred of us that cour- ageously mapped out our strenuous schedules and proudly m the ageousiy mapp entered, as mdividu- aTbutThe ss tion soon formed and ties of friendship and mutual i t est quickly bound us together. In the election which followed Archie Dunn was made our first president. This completion of thl organization was the sign for the attack. Shears and clippers kft their mark with us but other heads than ours found their turn at the hands of crude tonsorial artists. The Christian Association, graciously entertaining m our hono, furnished the opportunity for our initial bow to society. With the rural dust brushed from our boots, choking collars and careful y ad- justed ties, we made our first appearance. It was all so nice that those first feelings of strangeness gave place to a growing something that made us glad we had come to Millikin-glad that we were mem- bers of the class of 1913. .„ We passed a quiet year in all, content with the momentary thrills of De Ouincey ' s opium dreams and the semester examinations. But in the spring our youthful fancies lightly turned to thoughts of— picnics So picnic we did. Boiling Spring ' s Park was the scene of the 8 ? memorable event and long will the old park remember it, for we swarmed the place o ' er in the short, happy day. It was Fall before we met again. This time Stanley Thayer was placed at our head by the election. The first event was a party given for us by our advisors, Dr. and Mrs. J. C. Hessler, where we spent an evening of genuine pleasure. The Junior year has passed rapidly. We look back seemingly only a short time to the first meeting, at which Leslie Lewis was elected president. Then we faced the momentous question of class emblems and colors. The rashly selected sky blue and gold of Fresh- man days gave place to the conservatism and dignity of navy blue and white The class emblems soon followed. The tower clock looked down again on its favorite class with undisguised admiration This time the members were wearing their caps and hats of navy blue with the numerals " 13 " proudly displayed. This year has not been without its delightful social affairs. Dr. and Mrs. Galloway s enjoy- able party was an inspiration for the development of new and original was to follow. . , • , i • u ideas for entertaining the Seniors in the party m their honor, which Shortly following the Christmas holidays the class lost its execu- tive for Leslie Lewis was forced to leave school on account of his health and to journey southward to Cuba and Panama. E. W. Smith was elected without opposition to fill the vacancy. Now we stand at the close of the third year of this history, num- bering fewer than we did on the first glorious day, yet stronger as an o " mzatln, notwithstanding. Thus we are ready bravely to assume the dignities and responsibilities of the last great year which shall prove a fitting finale to a memorable history- a asm Eighty-two ID MIU IDEK 1912 DO □ □ □ □ ]0D MIIylvIDH K 1912 00 Flower — Violet.

It is to be a strictly accurate history, too, told by an en- tirely dispassionate observer, who looks at the matter from a historical distance. As this is to be merely a sci- entific record , we will not try to force upon you our own personal conviction that this is the " pearl among classes, " the faculties ' greatest joy. " or " Prexy ' s dream children. " We know that it is true but will not say so here. The class of 1914 was organized in September, 1911, and even at its first meeting was marked by an uncom- mon enthusiasm. Loud shouts of " I rise to a point of order Mr Chairman, " and " question! question! " showed that a number of the so-called Freshmen had been leading lights m hig-h school Lits. The choice of a president and other officers, at this time was con- firmed at the second meeting when Mr. Wills was formally installed as 1914 ' s first president. A wiener roast at the home of Ira Shaw was the next important event Here a lively class spirit was shown after— as well as before —the eats A challenge to a tug of war contest was early sent to the Sophomores but it must have been lust in the mails tor nothing came of it. . , ., Balked in this desire for athletic distinction, the class turned its attention to the aesthetic. As a result the rich dark brown and glowing gold of those freshmen caps did much to brighten our campus during the dull gray winter months. On February twenty-second, the faculty advisors, Miss Conant and Mr Risley, gave a Washington ' s birthday party for the class at the home of Mr. Risley. This was a success in more ways than one. According to the records for class parties at Millikin, never before did every girl have a date and every man at least one girl. To tell the truth some had three. . ■ The 1914 tea was a success, too, for it was not just a dutitul " rabble gobble, git " affair; everyone turned to and helped. This abundance of cordial hosts and hostesses made the guests feel quite at home. . , . As some of its number were caught during the summer by the " get rich quick " fever and Dan Cupid ' s wiles, it was with thinned ranks that 1914 moved into the Sophomore sections m September, 1911. After a somewhat stormy session Mr. Cooper was chosen as 1914 ' s second president. Generously remembering its own Freshmen disappointments 1914 o-ladly joined with 1915 in an athletic contest. This was held on the football field early in October. Both the bleachers and the spectators were so gaily decorated in the colors of their favorite classes that it made our ordinarily prosaic athletic field seem fit for an ' ancient tournament. And tournament it was, but one with all the most modern frills as beseems 1914. The first contest was wall-scaling and the 1914 teams ran, jumped, and scrambled over in record time. The second event was a ame called basket-ball played without any baskets, but it was exciting nevertheless. This was won by 1915 Last of all as a grand finale, came the tug of war. In this the veterans of 1914 excelled So the day was won by the Sophomores Many wondrous events are being planned for the near future, but this " historian was asked to write a history, not a prophesy. So be it. Thus endeth the historian ' s history. Eighty-six Eighty-seven □ □ DD MIUJDEK 1912 DO □ □ □□u CLASS OF 1915 Colors — Maroon and Black. President Vice-President Ralph Wise.

Oh, little book, it seems so good that I ' ll just have to tell somebody about it. so I ' ll tell it all to you. This morn- ing I went to register, and oh, there were so many hresh- men! There were one hundred and fifty-six of us, all starting in together. Today we had our first exams. I was scared to death, and I guess everybody else was, too. I don ' t think I flunked though, and I am sure none of the others did, because, one thing I have noticed, little book, is that we are a remarkably bright class. We have elected officers now, and we stand firmly organized as the Freshman Class of the James Millikin University. There were so many who were capable that it was hard for us to choose our officers but I feel sure that those who won the election are the very best Ralph Wise is president, with Marian McClelland vice-presi- dent, Samuel Tucker secretary, Herbert Hessler treasurer and Lowell Roblee and Emmet Kent, marshals. Oh little book, such excitement! I am so full of it I can hardly sit still It was this way. The Sophomores and Freshmen were) hazing each other and cutting each other ' s hair, and, of course, the faculty did not approve of it. So there was a contest to decide the supremacy and to end all hostilities. It was a lovely contest, little book, even if the Sophomores did win We waved our colors, the crimson and the black, and we yelled and yelled and yelled. Barley Yakel was our yell leader and he was fine When he waved his arms around and tied himself up into knots, we just couldn ' t help yelling. It was a close contest, too The Sophomores won the wall scaling, but the ball game was ours That left the Tug O ' War to decide it. The first time the Sophs won, but when it was discovered that one of the boys had shoes with cleats, the referee gave the point to the Freshmen. They tuo-cred again and that time the point was the Sophomores. Oh, how they did want that last point! We yelled, " Pull, you Freshmen, Pull you Freshmen! " at the top of our voices. They did pull, too, but the Sophomores were a little stronger so the last point and the contest went to them. The next morning at chapel the Sophomores came in, singing their class song and waving their colors. We got up and yelled for them and they yelled for us. I think our class spirit was good, don ' t you? lit! 4. " jHHHP 1 " ll»llliHH|] Once a month we have had chapelettes. They are lots of fun, for then the whole Freshman class is together, and we have pro- grams. You would be surprised at the talent there is in our class, little book. Our hats came today. They are little black rah-rah hats, with a crimson ribbon around them. Tomorrow we are going to wear them and let all the other classes see that we are Freshmen, and that we are proud of it. All in all, it has been a glorious year, little book. Of course it has had its ups and downs. Sometimes it has seemed to me as if it were mostly " downs, " but now that I look back at it I am sure there were more " ups.

We met for the first time in 1908. A crowd of round eyed, wondering children, and timorously took cur places in the throngs about us. That first year we did little but gape at those about us in wondering admiration and awe. How often, when we heard of the won- derful events which were taking place did we long to become illustrious like you of the college. As a second year class we organized and began to feel quite important, for now we had some one to look down on. During our third year we pushed our little craft into the sea of society and enjoyed many a pleasure trip on its untroubled waters. But this year! Our last year! Our best year! Many the plans we have made and carried out, many the times that we have caused you, yes you, our worthy Seniors, to start from your deep reveries and exclaim at our accomplishments. We have forced you to realize that, after all, stowed away some- where within us there is a little brain power and a little energy. But what we have done this year is but a thimble-full compared to what we shall do next year. Therefore, Seniors, I bid you watch for the class of 1912, the class that shall make " A Greater Millikin.

And it was that morning of the 12th day of the 9th month of 1911 ' 7 A Now there arose up a new Dean, who had come from a far away ' land, Indiana. And she gathered her people around her spoke to them of the trials and tribulations and of the great joys and happi- dJ □ □ LI OF ASTON HALL lies ,_s that they would undergo in the coming year; then stretching forth her hand said, " Very well, you may go.

" So again her children assembled together and she told them of how she had labored long and diligently but at last had been forced to come to them for aid and laid before them the new plan. " Student Government. " And they hearkened unto her plan and looked upon it with favor. 10 Then it was that Lois daughter of Brown, was chosen Pres- ident; Jessie daughter of Shepherd, and Bertha daughter of Widdi- field as proctors of Lower Aston Hall; Ann daughter of Stoker, and Beth daughter of Worrell as proctors of Middle Aston Hall, and Alice daughter of Hicks, and Harriet daughter of Wilcox, as proctorfs of Highest Aston Hall; and Dee daughter of Worrell, was selected as scribe to chronicle all the comings and the doings and the sayings of her people. , . 11 And it came to pass that many things happened. At one time the main dwelling place was thrown open to all the other people of the school and every one did rejoice and had a bite to eat and went away again. At another time the Dean and her children journeyed to a far off corner of the campus and there offered up dry goods boxes and limbs of trees as fire and did roast wemers and toast marshmallows. . r , ,„ 12 And so the year passed each one growing more fond ot her new home in the new land of Millikm atmosphere, each trying to do her best and all always rejoicing in their new leader. Ninety-eight □ □ oo mi: ALUMNI HE Alumni organization has not been inactive dur- ing the year, and especially is this true of the local Alumni. Earl in the school year a new organiza- tion was formed among local Alumni to work to- gether with the students in the campaign for con- tributions to the " Gym " fund. At that time it was understood that a vigorous campaign was to be made among citizens, together with other friends of Millikin, for contributions to the fund as well as to do some home mis- sionary work among ourselves. A meeting was held to launch the movement but, after considering two or three suggestions which were made at that time, it was thought best to postpone such a campaign and to limit the work among ourselves and to support any entertainment offered by the students at Milli- kin which would tend to increase the " Gym " fund. We have already succeeded in some measure in securing more contri- butions and we expect to do a great deal more along this line. Another movement which has been started and which shows the interest of the Alumni is for the formation of an organization, known as the " Millikin Club, " in the City of Decatur. One of the essential qualifications for becoming a member is that the proposed member must have been regu- larly enrolled one year in the collegiate department of Millikin and must not now be enrolled in the institution. The need of such an organization has been felt and a great deal of interest has been shown in it. The members of this club are enthusi- astic and propose to boost Millikin in every way possible. This year the membership will probably reach 125, altho lim- ited to the city of Decatur.

II s ' agit de mieux com- prendre cette langue. c ' est-a-dire ce peuple, de se penetrer de ses sentiments et d ' en profiler le plus possible en 1 aimant davantage, car c ' est en prenant part pleinement aux emotions d ' un peuple que ces elements fugitifs qui constituent son carac- tere particulier nous sent reveles. Le club est pour nous une source d ' assimilation du materiel dont nous sommes ennchis clans la salle de classe, c ' est encore une occasion salutaire d ' affirmer davantage, dans cet atmosphere de bberte mdivid- uelle nos connaissances deja acquieses. Cette preoccupation devrait etre pour nous I ' ouverture d ' un domame fertile et d un horizon plus large, car la langue franchise est un domame oil il n ' v a pas de frontieres. ' II n ' y a que le premier pas qui coute, dit le proverbe. Pursque le but du club est de nous perfectionner clans le fran- cais parle et comme le principal ecueil a cette exercise est gen- eralement 1 ' absence totale de sujet, nous avons tacbe de vemr ?.u seccurs des imaginations paresseuses et nous avons essaye d ' offrir a cbaque reunion un programme aussi artistique que divers, ce qui a amene sans effort sur les levres des personnes presentes un flot de phrases elogieuses aussi agreables que variee. Quelquefois pour que tout le monde eut 1 ' occasion de dire an moins un mot nous avons precede a quelque jeu de societe comme le venere corbillon on le classique pigeon-vole. Pour encourager le beau sentiment du patriotism nous avons chante a chaque seance la Marseillaise, et pour penetrer clans Fame du peuple nous avons chante An Clair de la lane, Le Bon Roi Dagobcrt, II etait une Bergere. L ' art dramatique fleurit parmi nous; nous avons deja fait representor des pieces qui out fait parler a tout le monde. Nous tactions de reunir a tout temps l ' utile a 1 agreable, la recreation a l ' etude. Nous esperons laisser l ' mfluence cle notre oeuvre marquee en lettres d ' or a la page d ' honneur dans le gros Livre du Temps Audaecs fortuna juvat. DEVISE.

E. house, an inter-fraternity council was formed, made up of two represen- tatives from each fraternity, with Grover Yoder, S. A. E., as president. The object of this organization is to take care of fraternity affairs and to further better feeling- among the members of the different fraternities. PANHELLENIC ASSOCIATION The Panhellenic Association was established in its present form in 191 o- 191 1. It is an organization composed of two members from each of the five sororities of Millikin Univer- sity, namely, Pi Beta Phi, Chi Sigma Chi, Phi Pi, Theta Alpha Chi, and Beta Gamma Kappa. The association was formed to promote friendly feeling between the sororities, to regulate the time and manner of rushing, pledging, and initiation in a more uniform and ac- ceptable manner, and to place the sororities of the University on a firmer and more united basis. The rules formulated by this body and ratified by each sorority individually, are bind- ing upon each member of each sorority, thus tending to a more united and friendly action.

From the begin- ning, the outlook for a winning team was very favorable. Many old veterans appeared for practice at an early date; a host of new men afforded excellent material from which to begin the building of a powerful football machine. Indeed, there can be no doubt that we had everything needed ' for a championship team. And, had not optimism played too strong a part from the first, the title would have been ours for the plucking. Thus, overconfidence on our part and special preparation at the Illinois camp, resulting from optimistic " news dopists ' dope, " joined forces aoainst us. However, every man played a strong heady game, and too much credit cannot be given the team for its excellent showing. . Had we won our next game, with Knox, we would have won the state championship. It was lost on hard luck. The home team clearly outplayed the visitors two to one but, notwithstanding this fact, a touchdown, the only one registered against us by a minor college during the season, and two drop kicks were scored. Jones great field running was a feature. At Lincoln " mud, mud, and more mud " insisted on the low score of 11-0 in our favor. " Chennie ' s " punting marked him as the star of the " swim. " M ' illikin played real football against Monmouth at Decatur, and the visitors stood no chance whatever. " Bob " Evans played his first o-ame at quarter. He seemed to inspire new life, and the machine worked perfectly. Smith sprinted seventy yards for a touchdown Illinois College had been considered strong but, in spite of this fact they were defeated by a decisive score. Millikin players showed remarkable endurance. Starr and Robinson were the stars of the game. , In the game with Eastern Illinois Normal. Kent, a new man, played at full and showed great ability. Pinkstaff and " Robie " also helped to put the E. I. N. away in the face of the wind. And then came " Weslie " and his " ya— n. " Poor goat! Has he come home to stay? With Evans at quarter, Bowers punting and Captain Yoder digging holes, the result was not long in doubt. Mil- likin scored two touchdowns, thus giving them second place m the state, owing to the fact that Lake Forest failed to cross Wesleyan s goal line. On Nov. 25th our alumni had to be spanked to the tune of li-S. The last game of the season was played at home on a field of mud It was, however, the best exhibition of football of the year. Every " mud dauber " was a star. Captain Yoder, Myers and Pink- staff played their last game of college football. Too much credit cannot be given Coach Ashmore for the great amount of time and energy put forth in behalf of a winning team Captain Yoder has demonstrated that he is a leader of merit and worthy of much praise. And now, may Captain-elect Evans attain in 1912 " that " which so narrowly escaped us in 1911— " The State Championship. " One hundred sixty-six 0 □ □ CAPTAIN YODER. Captain Yoder is one of the best football men that ever wore a Millikin uniform. His playing at tackle for the past four years has been remarkable. Three times has he been placed on the all state team and once on the Illinois-Wisconsin team. This year as captain, he has made an excellent leader and a strong player. Yoder graduates this year. One hundred sixty-seven CAPTAIN-ELECT EVANS. " Fighting Bob ' s " playing, for the past two seasons has marked him as one of the best ends ever developed at Millikin. This season he started at end and later played at quarter. His goal kicking and generalship have been invaluable assets to the team. With such a man to cap- tain the team of 1912, another championship looms in sight. K1912 DDI " Pink ' s " first football was played at Mil- likin. He received his first experience bucking the varsity, and after several years of hard work and practice finally landed a back fi ' eld berth. His playing this year has been strong and consistent, also a Senior in college. Pinkstaff is MYERS. Leon Myers, right guard, is another concrete wall. With his build and experi- ence, he outplayed every man that he en- countered. Following the ball and picking up fumbles were his specialties. " Sporty " was picked for the " all state in 1910. He is another who is lost this year by graduation. HOOVER. Serin has played at right half-back for three seasons, and might well be considered the old standby of the team. He is exceed- ingly fast at half, and a good line plunger. His brilliant defensive playing was a fea- ture all last season. PINKSTAFF. tngioC One hundred sixty-eight □ □ □ □ M MIIylylDE K 1912 n n Rafferty is a man of experience and skill as a football player. He comes from the Holy Cross Prep. School, having played there for three years. He filled his old position at center thruout the season, and displayed great ability in the pivotal posi- tion. MUNCH. Munch is one of the best workmen on the team. His playing is not of the " grand stand " type, but that kind which makes a typical line-man. He was always there when needed, and not only there but he did the business. STARR. " Crip, " with his 170 pounds of American manhood, has been a terro rto every team played against the last two years. His heavy line plunging and general all-round ability as a player marks him as a fit op- ponent for any one sent to oppose him on the field of " football. " RAFFERTY. □ □ □ □ " Fat " stands like a house, 198 pounds and 6 feet tall. His playing at tackle has been good all season, and his punting — the best in the state. Such punting was only needed in the Knox game, and there would have been a far different result. SMITH. Smith is one of the n ew men on the team and hails from Mt. Vernon, the home of football players. He has, without a doubt, played one of the fastest games of any man in the state. In his position at end he has starred in every game and. with a little more experience, will make the best end m the state. JONES. Jones comes from Taylorville where he made for himself a state-wide imputation as a football player. The smallest man on any college team in the state, he not only ran his team%vell, but showed on necessary occa- sions a power of rising to the emergency. He carried the team with him in a deliber- ate and deadly certainty of attack that won names. BOWERS. ■ i □□ m One hundred seventy 0 □ □ □ □ odd miuud: Chynewoth is well qualified to hold down a half position. His experience and training makes him a valuable man. He is a good ground gainer and a punter of no mean ability. KENT. Kent was able to play only the latter part of the football season. However he showed that he had great ability as a ba ' ck fieldsman and, but for his late start, would have made the " all state " in a handy fashion His line plunging and defensive work were featu res of the season. REETER. Reeter is still upholding the family rep- utation in football. His playing this year at tackle has been steady and consistent, and at no time has he failed to stay with the best and biggest of them. CHYNEWOTH. D O f7 OOl; One hundred seventy-one WASEM. Wasem is another man who came out for the team and showed up well. " Whatso " can play at guard as well as at half or full. He always managed to get in the way of the opposing backlinesman, and break up a play just at the right time in the game. Next year look for Wasem to win a regular place on the team. RYNKSEL. Rynksel played on the second team until the latter part of the season, when he was called upon to play with the regulars as " sub-back. " " Rinkse " has not had a chance to show what he can do as yet, but wie may predict a good showing next season. Buck ' s work at half and end this year makes him a promising candidate for next year ' s team. He can be relied upon to play football all the time he is in the game. ROBINSON. Robinson played at half-back the latter part of the season. He was a good ground gainer, and never failed to bring the ball out of danger when called upon to do so.

From a financial standpoint, it was especially good, although hampered to some extent by numerous delays in the completion of the gymnasium. These delays, however, afforded means for a great amount of advertising which aided materially m making the opening games in the new " gym " the best yet m attendance. Surely no complaint can be mad ' ..- of the team s record. True our team had to be content with second place in the minor college tour- nament at Bloommgton this year, while last year they carried away the championship. But the strain and worry caused by playing three games proved too great, and the team finally weakened. Neverthe- less, Wesleyan, with a comparatively fresh team, was able to win the final only after a desperately fought game. Of the eleven games played, six games were won and five lost The University of Illinois won the first game The Decatur Y. M C A team, State Champions, took two, thereby regaining the city championship. The other two defeats were at the hands of minor olleges, namely Wesleyan and Lake Forest. Christian Brothers College Illinois Normal, and Normal, were defeated on our own noorT while Normal, Illinois College and St. Viateurs tell victims en TheT. ETA. not having adopted the inter-collegiate code before the schedule was complete, the team was forced to play either set of rules when called upon to do so. This fact, and the lack of strong substitutes, had a noticeable effect at the beginning, and the U. of 1. game at Champaign on Dec. 16th, under the intercollegiate rules, proved easy for the state school. _ _ . The first game at home was played with Christian Brothers Col- lege on the loca l Y. M. C. A. floor. The team displayed form and easily outpointed the St. Louis five. Games with Normal, Decatur Y. M. C. A., Wesleyan and Normal t0ll °On d Feb 16th the new gymnasium was appropriately dedicated by defeating Wesleyan 30 to 13 before a crowd of J00 people. How- ever Starr Byrne and Rynksel were injured, and the team was greatly weakened for its Chicago trip which resulted in one game won and ° Iie After the second Y. M. C. A. game, came the tournament at Bloomington, March 7, 8, 9. Our old rival, Wesleyan, took first place, and Millikin second. It was a great game, and every man deserves credit for the plucky fight he made. " Big " Stables earned a place a forward on the first " all state " team, and Capt. Byrne made guard on the second team. , But what have we to look forward to next season In fact the outlook could not be more pleasing. Not a man will be lost thru graduation, and prospects for the best team in the history of the j. M. U. could not be improved upon. □ □ GO □ □ PQ One hundred seventy-six 0 □ □ □ □ MIU4DEK 1912 D0[ □ □ □ □ CAPT. BYRNE. Byrne is not only an efficient captain, but he is one of the best guards in the state. Some of the best basket ball players, he has repeatedly held down to one or two baskets in a game. His extensive knowledge of the game and ability to judge players have always held him in good stead, and enabled him to lead his team to second place among the minor colleges of Illinois. CAPTAIN-ELECT STABLES. Stables is the " big man " on the team, weighing 130, and reaching a height of 5 ft. 6 ins. However, what he has lacked in size, he more than made up in speed and accuracy. " Stape " has proven himself the star of the season, and was placed at for- ward on the " all state. " He is without a doubt,_ the fastest forward that ever wore a Millikin uniform. STARR. Starr is an expert at the game of basket- ball as well as football and baseball. His position this season was at center until his injury in the Wesleyan game on Feb. 16th His ability as a player is not over-estimated when we say that he is the best all-round player in the state. Lyons can always be depended upon when there is " fighting " to be done. He used his " 6-2 of talln ' ess " to good advantage in every game. His position has been at center since the injury to Starr, and no man could have filled the position with more credit to himself and to his team. EVANS. Evans, commonly known as " Fighting Bob " in football, still deserves to be called the same in basketball. Although Bob is not as consistent a player as some of his teammates, he plays well at all times. And when he is really " at himself, " there is no guard who can keep pace with him. LYONS. =il SRni One hundred m viy-eight □ □ □ □ SMITH. Smith, another new man on the team, has made good as sub-forward. He is built for a fast and speedy player and, with a little more varsity experience, will make a valua- ble man on the team. MONTGOMERY. Montgomery played a good game when called upon. Although he has had little real experience on the first team, he has shown himself to be a steady player at all times in the game. RYNKSEL. Rynksel, a new man at the J. M. TJ., made a reputation for himself at guard. He has been a consistent, hard-working player all season, and no forward covered himself with glory when guarded by him. He has speed, he knows the game and he is a " sticker; " in fact he has all those qualities which mark him as an " all state " guard in the near future.

In the beginning, hopes were raised by the appearance of several veterans and high school stars. T. B. Myers had returned and Cooper, Tenni- son and Ketch, high school stars, greatly strengthened the team. It was only a short time before a good team was de- veloped. The first meet of the season was with Wesleyan, May 7th. The scoring was remarkably close all thru the meet, and the victory was only decided by the last event, the discus throw, in which they took first and second. Tennison ' s great sprinting ability was brought to light when he twice defeated Flint of Wesleyan, in an easy fashion. On the 13th of May, Millikin showed real class by defeat- ing Rose Poly by the overwhelming score of 94 to 13. Not a Millikin man failed to star. 111. College at Jacksonville on May 21st, appeared to be an easy proposition, but hard luck overtook the team on the way over. Tennison ' s sickness and the lack of a pole-vanlter boosted Illinois ' chances, and they won 53 to 51. Millikin went to Peoria fully determined to win the state meet, but had to share second place with two other schools at 18 points. Tennison won both the 100 and 220 yd. dashes, tieing the record of 10 1-5 in the 100. T. P. Myers won the hammer throw for the second time, breaking the record with a throw of 122 ft. 4 l A ins. This season promises to bring forth the best track team in the history of the school. □ □ □ □ One hundred eighty-fo iXr 0 □ □ □ □ MHXIDEK 1912 DDE Cooper comes to us from Hoopston high schorl, where he gained his first training in athletics. He has been one of the best point winners of the season. Although of small stature, he handles the weights as if they were playthings, and is one of the most consistent men on the team. T. B. MYERS. Myers is a man who has always worked for the good of the team. His best event is the hammer throw, which event he has twice won at the intercollegiate ' 09, ' 11. He is the only track man to be lost this year thru graduation. Tennison is. without doubt, one of the best sprinters in the West to-day. Not only does his string of victories show this, but the time he has made in each event. ' Sam promises to break two records in 1912. PINKSTAFF. Pinkstaff ran the hurdles last season and no one was able to come close to him in any of the dual meets. He was unfortunate m the intercollegiate meet at Peoria by be- ing disqualified for knocking down too many hurdles after winning second place. " Pink " is lost this year thru graduation. COOPER.

Only four " old men " reported for practice; howevbr the new material was of such quality that it soon left Coach Ashmore and Capt. Lewis with no doubt in their minds as to the possibilities for a good team. And so it took only fair weather conditions and constant co-opera- tion in practice to round out a team which was to land second place among the minor colleges of Illinois Mgr. Hampton ' s schedule consisted of games with leading col- leges of Illinois, a game with the famous Jap team ' of Keio Univer- sity, and a three day trip to Chicago. The season opened on April 25th with a practice game with the Clinton I.-M. team, in which Millikin was defeated 6-0. This °-ame brought to light the weak points of the team, and they were quickly remedied by Coach Ashmore. The next game was with the strong St. Viateur ' s team of Kan- kakee, April 27th. Now, thru the pitching of Nein and the fielding ot Starr, the game was won by the score of 2 to 1. Journeying on to Lake Forest, the team met defeat on a muddy field A wild throw upset the whole score, and when rain ended the fracas, the score stood 9 to 3 for the Lake Side school. A great deal of satisfaction was derived from the defeat of Wesleyan on her own baseball diamond May 4th, the score bein°- 4 to 3. On May 13th, Millikin suffered the first defeat at home. Brad- ley played good ball and won by the score of 4 to 2. Th Jap game brought a large crowd, and one of the best games of the season was witnessed. Captain Lewis, who had been injured m a previous game, entered at a critical moment, and his brilliant batting was largely responsible for the score of 5 to 3 in Million ' s favor. The next day, however, Lake Forest again defeated Ashmofe ' s team to the tune of 12 to 3. Starr, Anderson and Capt. Lewis were unable to play on account of injuries. The defeat at the hands of Bradley was atoned for on May 19th when Milhkm defeated her on her own diamond; score 5-3 _ On Decoration day. the Blue and White licked the Eastern Illi- nois State Normal aggregation, 4 to 1. The climax of the season was withheld until the very last and this with no other school than Wesleyan. For 17 long innings a pitcher s battle raged between " Dizz " Wills of Millikin and " Heiny " Stemkraus of Wesleyan. Evans finally broke the spell with a safe hit, and Nichols scored him with a long drive to centerfield thus winning the game 5 to 4. In conclusion, it can be said safely that the baseball season of 1911 was the most successful in baseball history at Millikin The new " gym " with its great facilities for practice should prove a tre- mendous advantage in reaching first position in college baseball the coming season. One hundred ninety- 0 MIUylDEK 1912 DDI Qgg|c=»ID|] MIU4DEK 1912 DO TENNIS ENNIS has at last gained a place in the heart of every Millikin student. The development and rise of the sport has been slow, and to stir enthusiasm seemed a hopeless task, but now the result of good managing is quite evident. The first successful intercollegiate tennis tour- nament was held at Bradley Field, Peoria, May 27, 191 1. Millikin was well represented. Busher played up to the semi-finals, when he was defeated by Schenk of Bradley. Hadley and Buck were in fine form, but were forced to give way to Schenk and Goss of Bradley. A much livelier and closer contest took place in the fac- ulty matches. Prof. Risley played an excellent game, but owing to an injury sustained in the first game could not keep REVIEW pace, and dropped the finals only after a determined effort. Prof. Woodruff and Prof. Risley reached the finals in the fac- ulty doubles. Finals— Brown, Bradley, defeated Risley, Millrkm, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2. Finals— Brown and Riple defeated Risley and Woodruff, Millikin, 7-9, 6-3, 6-2. The college tournament this year was also well attended, and keen interest was shown in the contests. Curtis Busher, a Freshman, won the student singles in easy style by defeat- ing Lindsey, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. Long, Gibson and Shelley were runners up in the semi-finals. Prof. Olds and Prof. Risley, individual champions, qual- ified for the faculty finals, but the contest was postponed in- definitely on account of the inclement weather.

" And Red Saunders leaned forward in his chair and explained his plan in detail. " I call it a dead-cop cinch, " he finished. " The money comes in on Thursday, Kelly leaves on Fri- day at eleven. That ' s a good ten hours to make a fond fare- well to little old New York. " " Oh, it ' s easy enough, only who ' s to watch the alley? It wouldn ' t he wise just now for yon and me to get mixed up in a deal like this and get spotted. Now, if we might see Jim, or — friend Frederick, we might " " What ' s the matter with Kennedy? He ' s all right, isn ' t he? " " Oh, Kennedy — yes, he ' s all right, but no chance to see him — down and out, I believe. " " Good! the very man we need. But, say, " he whis- pered, " where does he hang out now ? I haven ' t seen him for an age. " " Comes in here sometimes. Say, le ' s go over to the wharf. We might see Jim. " With the caution born of experience, the two men emerged from the door of a room in the rear of the tenement and made their way down the alley. They had almost reached the street when a man ' s tall figure appeared in the dim obscurity of the gray afternoon. It was Kennedy. His hat was drawn low over his face and the collar of a shabby coat hid his chin. He shambled along, absorbed in his gloomy thoughts, oblivious of his surroundings. Saunders and Wilson signalled each other quickly and prepared to meet their man. Coming so suddenly out of the shadows they gave Kennedy a start. " Why, Joe, old boy, " Saunders delighted voice exclaimed. " Why, Joe, who ' d thought it ! You ' re just the man I want to see. " " Not in a hurry, are you, Kennedy? " asked Wilson in a friendly tone. Kennedy looked from one to the other before he spoke. To be greeted familiarly by such well-dressed, prosperous- looking men gave him a glow of pride. He felt glad that they had noticed him at all, an unusual thing in Kennedy ' s life. With a great deal of satisfaction he drew his gaunt figure erect and tried to keep the eagerness out of his voice. " Hello, boys! It seems good to see you. No, I ' m not exactly in a hurry. Did you want to see me? " " Good ! " exclaimed Saunders, hooking his arm in that of Kennedy ' s. " Sure we want to see you. Come along and we ' ll have a jolly hour. " With a flow of friendly chatter Kennedy was hustled into the seclusion of the room the two men had so recently occu- pied. Again and again they attempted to draw him out, but without success. At last Saunders came out in the open. Qg°l[=DiDD MI UD R 1912 DOt " See here, Kennedy, " he began, his smooth, persuasive tones appealing in spite of Kennedy ' s indifference, " we ' ve got a little job planned and we need you to make it work. Can we depend on you to keep mum about it? " For the moment Kennedy ' s heart leaped. Luck was coming his way again, after all. But he took care to conceal his agitation. " Drive away, Red; mum ' s the word. " As he listened the whole thing became clear. It was his one chance and it loomed big above the darkness closing in about him. " It ' s a big job, " Saunders went on, " but we can pull it off and even up the spoils easy enough. What do you say, boys, will you come in? " Wilson hardly waited for him to finish. " Red, you ' ve always treated me fair. This looks good to me. I ' m yer man, and here ' s my hand on it. " Saunders turned expectantly to Kennedy " And you, Kennedy, what do you say about it? Surely you ' re not going to let this chance get away? " Across the table Kennedy sat low in his chair. His lean fingers opened and closed spasmodically on the edge of the table. He looked at the room — dark, filthy, foul. He looked at his own shabby clothes. Last of all he " looked at Saunders ' face — sleek, well-fed, unctuous; at the slender, well-shaped hands with their polished nails and flashy rings. The contrast was too decided. Suddenly he sat up, his thin face white with determination. His voice was hard and unnatural. " You can count me in, boys, " was all he said. " I thought I knew you, Joe. " But even as he spoke Saunders felt he had never really known the Joe Kennedy who faced him so sternly silent. The man looked desperate and Saunders deftly grasped the oppor- tunity to make his triumph complete. " Now, boys, let ' s plan how we ' ll spend the money. It means a cool ten thousand for each of us, and its to Ven- ezuela that my ticket will read. " The smooth voice went on, but Kennedy scarcely heard. His brain was aflame with the thought of once more getting on his feet. He had been down so long, he had walked among men yet not of them, he had tasted the lowest dregs until re- lease seemed impossible. And here was his chance. Saunders, alive to the advantage of his present mood, suggested that they meet that night to finish their plans, and the three parted company. When at last he was alone in the street Kennedy battled with his better self, which struggled for supremacy. Some- how he had always managed to steer clear of crime, even though driven to the verge. It could not be that he had planned to rob. Why, what would Mary say? Mary! He had not thought of Mary. No, he couldn ' t leave her. But he must. And his footsteps betrayed his agitation. He must think the thing over; he must get it clear. In a far corner of the park he dropped down on a bench and sank his head into his hands. Could he forsake Mary? He must. She would be cared for — the Charities — the Home would care for her. But sup- pose they didn ' t find her? She would suffer. Horrible thought! □ □ □ □ 7 One hundred ninety-seven He started up and ran. Mary must not suffer again, for he had sworn it. He couldn ' t leave her. He would tell Saun- ders he couldn ' t do it. And at the thought of what that would mean he sank down again upon the bench. It meant every- thing to him; it was his one chance; he must not turn it aside. Far away he would begin life anew. He would live in ease, even as he had existed through privation. But there was Mary! What of her? Poor, patient Mary! God, how she had suffered ! What a pity she had not died years ago! Died ! Full of horror at his own guilty soul, he gave a fright- ened cry and leaped to his feet. But fast as he hurried, the thought stayed on, and grew and formed itself into desire. He stopped short and looked at the thing squarely. Well, why not? She was a misery to herself, a burden to him. Anyway, Mary wanted to die. He had often heard her pray to be relieved of her pain. Suppose he hastened it along and gave her freedom from life that was worse than the agonies of death. Horrible thought ! Could he murder his own wife? Terrified beyond measure, he turned and fled. Again and again he tried to disgorge this thing from his mind, but the awful thought thoroughly possessed him. But how ? Pity whispered a painless death. Reason, hand in hand with his madness, bade him be cautious. An- other hour, and still another, he battled with himself, always arriving at the inevitable conclusion. In his saner moments he revolted at the idea of taking a human life, and that life — Mary ' s. On the other hand, once he was free, ease and pleasure awaited him. It was too tempting and he ceased to resist. As he entered the back room of the two where Mary Ken- nedy lived the long hours through his heart throbbed madly, for he clutched tightly in his pocket the vial which was to give him release and his wife — death. Quiet as he was, Mary heard him. " Joe, is that you? I didn ' t think you ' d be in yet. " Then, as lie did not answer, " Joe, may 1 have my tea now ? " The man flushed guiltily. " In a minute, " he called; " I ' ll make some toast. " " That ' s nice, Joe. I lo-ve toast, and you make it so crispy, " she laughed. Kennedy started. That laugh ! Mary must be better. Nonsense ! She would never be better. Just a useless burden to drag him down. But he couldn ' t take her life just yet — tomorrow would be time enough. A little later when he! carried Mary ' s supper to her he found her almost jubilant. She had smoothed her hair and her thin cheeks were flushed feverishly. The short, cpiick breath and the bright, roving eyes told their own story. Ken- nedy, absorbed in his guilt, misinterpreted the warning. " Poor Joe, " she said, " too bad you ' re burdened with such a miserable cripple. Sometimes I ' ve wondered why God let ' s me live. Surely He is wise, yet where ' s the wisdom of that? " Kennedy breathed heavily. She was voicing his very thoughts. " Don ' t talk like that, Mary. Eat your supper. " His voice was husky with emotion and he dared not look at her. When she had quite finished she called him softly. One hundred ninety-eight. □ □ □ □ L " Can ' t you stay a little with me tonight, Joe? Someway I ' m lonely. " It was the pathetic voice that made him answer. " I promised Wilson I ' d see him again, " he said. " He goes away tomorrow. " Even as he spoke he glanced at the wasted form with its poor, crippled back and suddenly changed his mind. For the last time he would humor her fancy. Tomorrow she would not need him. " Guess he won ' t be down yet, though, " he said. For a time he wandered aimlessly about the room, whistling softly to keep up his courage. The room grew deathly still. " Oh! " she cried with a start as he dropped into the chair beside the bed. " I thought you were gone again. I ' ve been dreaming, Joe, dreaming of the little house out in the country where we lived so long ago. It was all so real, " the eager voice went on, " the tiny rooms, the garden in the back, and the flowers, Joey, so bright and beautiful. It ' s been a long time, hasn ' t it, Joe? Do you remember when the hen came off with ten fluffy little chicks? Dear, dear, but they did ruin my flowers! How happy we were, Joe! You used to come home from the mill at night, and you ' d whistle when you reached the corner, and I ' d run ut and wave my apron ; yes, we were happy, Joe. What a time I had learning to keep house ! But you were patient and never complained even when the dinner was burned to a crisp. " Kennedy could not answer. He was trying to keep mur- der in his heart. And Mary Kennedy went on. One hundred ninety-nine " Joe, if baby had lived she ' d have been fifteen today. I can just see the way she ' d look. She had your eyes, Joe. What a tiny, helpless baby she was! What a comfort she ' d have been to you, Joe, when I ' m gone. I ' ve always been sorry she didn ' t know the man her father was. Perhaps God took her then to spare her the sight of a mother so miserably crippled. " " Don ' t Mary, don ' t talk like that, " he cried out in his agony. With his head in his hands Kennedy was miserable, indeed. Reaching out blindly, the mothering instinct strong with- in her, she laid her hand softly on his arm. " Joe, " she said, and now her voice did not waver, " I ' m sorry it couldn ' t have been different. When God cast me down and made me a cripple I blamed Him for ruining my life — and we were so happy then — and I didn ' t think I could ever be happy again. In my agony I cursed Him. I wanted to die. I was just a helpless sinner. Then when I saw how you took up your burden and worked so patiently I felt ashamed. From the day that you came home and found me at the foot of the stairs and our baby lying so still and white in its little crib above you ' ve been a different man. I ' ve come to see it clearly now, Joe. In no other way could I have come to care for you so deeply. When you asked me to be your wife, Joe, I thought I loved you. That was only the begin- ning of love. You ' ve been good to me ; you ' ve made me for- get my hours of pain. I know it ' s been hard, it ' s been awful to tie you down. But sometimes when I get to thinking what you might have been without me I can see why God let me UD£K 1912 DD G □ u live. Why, Joe, you might have been really bad, you know — you might have robbed and murdered and thieved. But, thank God, I have you as clean and good as the day I first knew you. Every day I pray that you might have comfort when I ' m gone. You ' re a good man, Joe, and God can ' t forget that. " You ' d better go now, Joe. And Joe, before you go could you kiss me — just once? " Dazed, hardly understanding, Joe Kennedy reached out and took the poor crippled form in his arms. He held her close for a moment, and a gentle smile full of sadness lighted the pale face. Tenderly he laid her back on the pillow and stumbled out into the night. Once in the street, he never paused until he reached the room where Wilson and Saunders awaited him. One glance at the man stilled their words of welcome. He walked up to the table where they sat and began speaking at once. " Boys, " he said, " I can ' t do it. I ' ve always been an honest man, even when it ' s hurt like death. I ' ve had my temptations the same as you. I ' ve wanted money and pleas- ure and ease. I ' ve dreamed of riches — but I ' ve steered sttraight. I ' ve had to, boys. There was always Mary, my wife, " and here his voice broke in a great sob. " She ' s a crip- ple, boys, and for fifteen years she ' s believed in me. She thinks I ' m straight and, by the Lord, I will be straight. There ' s no use, I ' d rather have her faith than all the wealth of the world. That ' s all, boys. " He was gone before they could say one word. For some minutes both men were silent from astonishment. Dazedly they looked at each other. " Hell! " said Wilson. Saunders whistled softly. Neither of them cared to talk. With the burden of guilt lifted from his soul and new resolves struggling on his lips for utterance, Kennedy entered the room where he had left his wife. He fell on his knees and sobbed. For Mary Kennedy was dead. — G. Herman. ] □□ D : si liQ] 7Vo hundred Qgg|c= 10n MlhUDZK 1912 1913 Hear us ! O you who are about to depart !

The setting- sun sent lightning-like Hashes of ruddy light over the low white buildings of Antioch, as they nestled at the foot of the hill, catching here and there glints in the stream that made its way down the hill to give life to the city, it was through the window of a humble home that the last lingering ray seemed to want to stay, for it found there a resting place in the hair of a sweet-faced little woman. She sat deep in thought, her eyes toward the glories of the even- ing sky. The light in her eyes seemed to question, seemed to doubt, till at last it grew tired, sad and hopeless. A step of a sandled foot on the floor behind her caused her to turn, and there, looking down at her, with such a wonderful light, a light like that which she had never seen in his eyes before, was a young man, tall, strong, manly, the embodiment of new life. " Oh, Thomas, my son, " was the greeting she gave him. That seemed to open the flood gates. Putting his hands out hefcre him in a pleading gesture, all his young manhood reaching out to her, lie began to speak slowly and gently. But, O, the strength that was behind. " Mother, can I tell you? Will you understand? This evening as I was making my way back from the baths, on the street by the temple, I saw a great crowd around a man. As I came up I stopped to listen. I had to stop. The man was a stranger, mother, with a face so kind, sorrowful and gentle that at first I heard not what he said for looking at him. Then these words came to me through the crowd : ' But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. ' Before I thought I called back : ' What is the kingdom of God? Why should I seek it? And then — mother! why do you look at me so? " " Thomas, did you say that his face was sad and gentle? " " Yes, mother. " " Then I know of him, son. But I am not accmainted with him. " " I am so glad, mother, for just then he came to me through the crowd, asking the way I was going. So with the crowd following, he walked almost here with me, talking- all the while. " " The kingdom O ' f heaven, mother. I know what it is. I feel it here, " and he placed his hand to his heart. " There ' s such a strange peace that seems to be so big that I cannot keep it all. The man ' s name was Jesus of Nazareth. As he left me, looking straight into my eyes, his own sad ones pleading, he put both his hands on my shoulders and said so- sweetly and gravely: ' Lad, follow) thou me. ' " " Mother, " and he took a step back as though to brace himself, " mother, I go- " Quickly the arms of the woman were around him, strain- ing him to her. " My boy, " she cried, " I cannot, cannot let Two hundred two you go — with a stranger, too — you, all I have — leaving your mother to follow a stranger. O boy! " Gently she kissed him and put him from her. " Leave me, clear. " Alone, she threw herself on her knees at the window, and great tears filled her eyes. " Why should the gods treat me thus? What have I done to cause their displeasure? Have I not worshiped them as I should — or maybe it is because I left them for the man they call Jesus. Yet I went back to them for fear of their displeasure. But is there this Savior? Why did I follow Him? Who is this Jesus? " she cried. Then all at once there was a bright light in the room. She looked up through tears, the agony of the passed minutes on her face, into two of the most wonderful eyes that ever looked cut on this world. Slowly rising to her feet, she stumbled backward — then a step forward. What ! The Master spoke : " Woman, be not afraid. " That voice! Kneeling again she lifted her hand in supplication and besought Him : " O Jesus — you, you. I tried to put you out of my heart. I had gone back to my old gods. Yet you were still here, though I knew you not. Then you called my boy — fflggO Tiro hundred three my boy — I would not give you myself. O Jesus, are you go- ing to take him from me ? He ' s my boy. " " Woman, who gave him to you? " asked the Master. " I cannot, I " — and as she threw her arms out toward the Master her hands touched his garment. A silence of agony filled the little room. Minute after minute passed. The Sa- vior, too, seemed to feel the pain, the struggle. As time passed she became quiet, a sad sweet peace came into her face, and then the sadness gave place to joy. " Master — my Master and Savior, I love Thee. All I have I give to Thee — to Thee " " Peace, woman, peace I leave with you. " There was darkness again. But only in the outside world, for her heart was full of sunlight and sang with joy. As the woman turned to meet the lad who entered she took both his hands in hers. " My son, I know. I feel the great happiness. Your Master, my Master, came to me, too. I understand now. You, the best I have in the world, you, so very dear to me, I gladly give to Him. I — boy — kiss me and ' follow thou Him. " " — M. Shipp. □□n BONNIE FOURTEEN (With profuse apologies to Sir Walter Scott and to any other poetic soul which feels itself offended).

" By Bacchus! " chirruped the mouth. All Rome shuddered with awe at hearing. Cassius, the sly and servile Cassius, glided to the Em- peror ' s side. " My lord was pleased to say? " he queried in silken tones. " That in all Rome there lives not one of the good old Roman breed, saving ourselves. " The Emperor, whose mother was a Greek and whose father was unknown, prided himself on his Roman blood. " My lord is pleased to forget Tullius Varrus. " " Ay ! for Varrus has played too long with these Oriental tricksters who infest the court, too long to cling very close to virtue. " " It is said, lord, that Varrus has a brother. " " In Rome? " " Nay, lord. For twenty years he has not seen the city, and for ten he has not spoken with Tullius. On a little isle — so runs the tale — he lives the life of his fathers. Simple and true, some call it, but for me " — with a shrug — " a little cold and crude. Nevertheless, the fame of his strength has traveled far. " " But I am still right. There is no Roman in Rome — but ourselves. " " I have a plan, lord. " Cassius murmured low, that the courtiers might not hear. The puffy slits that stood for the Emperor ' s eyes almost opened for an instant as he listened. Those who looked grew fretful, for anything which could move the Emperor — he whose soul had played with glee over the entire gamut of hu- man suffering and torture — must be of a nature quite super- lative. He spoke. " Well, well, Cassius, go and prosper. Meanwhile we shall try to live until you come again to Rome. Methinks it will be hard. Heigh hum ! The days are long and weary and nought in Rome is new. " Cassius passed from Rome to the coast and from thence to the Isle of Varna without let or hindrance. The journey, for an ordinary citizen, would have been long and irksome, but when made in the name of Caesar it was smooth and unin- terrupted — if we except a trifling storm which even Caesar ' s name could not subdue. There was no dock where Cassius landed, the cursed storm having driven the boat from its course. Cassius ha d ascertained, however, that the isle was quite small, that there was very little danger of becomiing lost. So he plunged un- hesitatingly into the thickets lining the beach. Not far in- land he came to a well-kept road and on the road he met a grotesque figure with a gigantic bundle of sticks on its head. " SlaveP commanded Cassius. " Slave! in the name of Caesar, tell me : Where shall J find the lord of this isle. Also tell me his name. " The figure stood still. Two sharp eyes gazed at Cassius and a cracked voice came in answer : " Lord, upon this isle there are no slaves. We he all free men. Since thou askest in the name of Caesar, I will answer your question. . The master of the island is Marcus, of the house of Varrus, and a mighty man is Marcus. Why, sir, ' tis but a quarter of the year agone that he gave a feast whereat " " Enough. Where is he? Be brief. " " ] will lie brief. In short, sir, he is at the tavern. The tavern is down the road, and as the road is as straight as thy nose thou canst not miss it. And of a verity wilt thou know- Marcus Varrus, for a mighty man is Marcus, and at a feast not a tenth of the year agone, at a feast whereat were — may the gods pave thy way with pleasure ! " The last was shouted after the fleeing Cassius, who had tossed the garrulous old rogue a coin and was now seeking the tavern. He walked for some five hundred paces. Here he reached the foot of a little hill. ddie sky, which had been overcast from the recent storm, was now clearing in patches, permitting the ruddy rays of the setting sun to reach the earth. Just as Cassius reached the foot of the hillock a flood of light burst upon the summit thereof and in clear-cut silhouette Cassius saw the form of a giant, wrestling with some three or four men of smaller size. ;R1912 p i ' ' i san Cassius gave a great gulp. Here was a gladiator of gladiators ! In fear lest the giant should be hurt Cassius ran screaming up the hill. " Stop! In the name of Caesar, stop! Hurt him not! " The big man picked up two of his opponents, one in each hand and tossed them upon their comrades, sending all four headlong. Thereat he gave a great booming laugh. " Who calls in the name of the Roman Caesar? " he chal- lenged. " His messenger. I come to seek one Marcus Varrus. " " I am Marcus. What is the will of Caesar? " " It will be long in the telling. Also a hungry man is a poor talker, and Cassius is hungry. " " Come in, friend Cassius, and sup, and you, " turning to the four, " get ye home and remember how priceless is silence. " They obeyed, bowing low. Marcus turned to his guest, and as they entered the tavern said simply : " These are my servants, also my playmates. But I am all impatience to hear the message of Caesar. " He was forced to restrain his impatience until Cassius had washed down some flesh and cakes with three or four measures of wine. Marcus wondered where it all went, but before he had solved the problem Cassius began his tale. Subtle it was and full of lures to rouse the giant ' s feelings. In short it was this. Rome was not the old Rome, a city of statesmen and patriots. The Emperor even now was not safe, for many conspired against him, so that he trembled for his life. The ringleader was known. He was a giant — the strongest man in Rome. So sure was he of it that only a Two hundred six fiHH i i u nn j fortnight ago he had challenged any man to meet him in single combat. Now the Emperor, not wishing to involve any of his court in endless feuds had sought outside of Rome for a cham- pion who might slay the braggart. The fame of Marcus, trav- eling even to the Emperor ' s throne, had singled him out as the man. " And now, Marcus, " concluded the eloquent Cassius, " on you rests the fate of Rome. Will you remain at home, the laughing stock of all time, or will you come to Rome and slay the villain? " " I will come, answer Marcus. " Whether or not I will slay this upstart I do not know, but I will try, ay! though he be of mine own kin ! " " It is well. Let us sleep and in the morning on to Rome. " As the sun rose, glowing, from the ocean Cassius and Marcus came out into the yard of the tavern, ' where were wait- ing two chargers. These they mounted and quickly reached the little harbor, where they found Cassius ' boatmen impas- sively waiting. No storm hindered their passage to Italy, and the sun was shining bravely when they arrived. Marcus noted with increasing wonder the respect and servility shown to Caesar ' s messenger. Four or five horsemen formed a guard for them and Marcus was quickly and quietly conveyed to Rome. They entered the gates late in the evening. Gorgeous was the room and soft and silken was the couch prepared for Marcus. He, simple man, was stunned by the elegance. Deft-fingered servants bathed him in perfumed water and gave him clothes of coolest linen and brightest silk —and, it must be said, left him mightily confused. After their Two hundred seven departure Cassius slipped quietly into the apartment and sum- moned Marcus to appear before the Emperor. That personage was reclining on a golden couch sur- rounded by his fawning courtiers. As Marcus entered the courtiers drew aside that the Emperor might see him. He gazed at Marcus indifferently. " Thou art a man! " lie puffed. " And thou art Caesar! " responded Marcus. " Marcus Varrus, thou hast promised to fight for me against a man whom thou knowest not! Let that man be brought forth. " The guards at the door disappeared. Soon a slight clank- ing was heard. A man in chains was led in and Caesar, lan- guidly pointing, said : " Marcus, thou must fight that man. " Marcus looked, and lo ! it was his brother. Tullius! " he burst forth, then was silent. Tullius answered not, but gazed with surly face at Caesar. " Take him away. Marcus ! see to it that thou keepest thy promise! Else " he turned his thumb downward. Marcus was led dazed to his room. His first words were : " And that is the master of the world! " " He is so called, " unctuously replied Cassius. Marcus said no more. That thing ! That fat. helpless baby in silken swadling clothes. Caesar ! And he commanded one brother to slay another ! Still — he was Emperor. Late in the night they sent one to torment him. She harped on her love for Tullius and begged Marcus to spare him. Then she departed. =000 MIlylylDIvK 1912 000 Marcus did not sleep that night. Torn between love of country — of brother — of self, he wrestled in vain with the problem. But the night passed, the stars faded from the sky and they came to lead him to the arena, and he had not solved it. Meantime all Rome was agog. Cassius had made known the facts of the case and already the rabble were squabbling as to the probable conduct of Marcus. Morning found a vast excited multitude clamoring at the gates of the arena. " He will slay his opponent, knowing that it is Tullius. No Roman could do otherwise, " observed a grave old man. " He might fall on his own sword. " retorted another. " Marcus is a myth, " yawned a perfumed dandy. " It is only a game to draw the people ; to tickle Caesar for a minute. " But the gates were open and the roaring, clattering mob poured in and filled up the endless tiers of seats. Later the Emperor and his court entered. The seat beside the Emperor was empty, for she who yesterday was saluted as Empress had died during the night of some slight malady — some said her wine ill agreed with her. Heralds shouted aloud the conditions of the contest. Each was to wear heavy armor and to carry a shield and short sword. Then was told the relationship of the combatants and the cause of the contest. Rome knew all this and paid little heed. A hoarse murmur indicated that wagering on the con- test was lively. Marcus, waiting in the cool darkness of the gateway, heard all dimly. When the heralds withdrew he was pushed into the arena and stood alone in the sunlight, the heavy visor of his helmet permitted only a restricted view and he was obliged to turn his head to view the surroundings. There was the vast oval, the scene of more bloodshed than an hundred battlefields. Up aloft towered the spectators, tier on tier. On one side an especially vivid blotch of color marked the position of the Emperor. Marcus stepped unfalteringly toward it to give the final salnte. Far away he caught a glimpse of another figure, armed like himself. And this was Tullius, his brother! The two combatants met in front of the Emperor and sa- inted. The salute fell on empty ears, for Caesar had gently drifted into the calm sleep of the expert wife poisoner and finished homicide. Cassius it was who gave the signal. Marcus, on turning to meet the other, was struck by his huge size. This he finally attributed to the bulky armor. At any rate Tullius meant to fight, for he smote the shield of Marcus with a might that drove that hero to his knees. A fierce anger swelled into his giant heart, but a great sorrow drove it away, so that while his lips shouted " Roma! Roma! " his heart said " Brother! " From his kneeling position he idly swung his sword with a wrist movement. It struck the neck of Tullius. Then a strange thing came to pass. Tullius, stunned by the blow, fell to earth, while the clumsy helmet, shorn from its fasten- ings, rolled aside, baring the face of — not Tullius, but a giant barbarian. Marcus stared stupidly ! " Kill ! Kill ! " yelled the multitude, its shouts rising in Dgg| ==]|00 MII.UD K 1912 000 hoarser and louder in ever increasing volume. So loud did they finally grow that they awakened Caesar. Marcus stood uncomprehending. Finally the whole thing dawned upon him. It was merely a test, a joke, a " Hail! Caesar! " he shouted, tearing off his helmet. He looked aloft and behold, there beside Caesar, dressed in rich robes, was Tullius, smiling. Caesar spake and the amphitheatre became silent. " Spare the fallen giant, Marcus. Tullius, cast thy brother this bag of jewels. Heigh-hum. Cassius, my friend, let us slay a few Christians. Verily, the days are long and wearv, and naught in Rome is new. " But there were those who said that as he gazed at Marcus, in the eye of the arch-murderer there gleamed a tear. — D. Gray.

To avoid discomfort then we ask this: If what follows gives you a headache — take a pill — any kind. If it results in toothache ask for a dentist ' s bill immediately — and — pull out the affected member. But foremost keep this in mind. Nobody worries us any. Go to blazes. The Graveyard Editors. A DISCOURAGING ESSAY ON NOTHING. Written by Student of Bible Study for the benefit of Fresh- men. Nothing is a simple matter. Idealists say matter is noth- ing. Materialists say mind is nothing. Therefore, to be con- servative, everything is nothing. Perhaps one of us entertains the delusion that he may amount to something. You are mis- taken. Give it up. You Are — Nothing. OUR SENIOR HYMN. In compliance with the earnest request of our Mr. Nied- emeyer for a Senior Hymn, we humbly offer the following verses. All that remains is for you, Arthur, to compose the lyrics, whereupon we feel sure the entire class will be filled with those lofty ideals, hitherto so elusive. The Savory Jack screw. Oh, that I were a jackscrew A jackscrew, only that; With just one leg to stand on And a head so smoothe and flat. Oh, a jackscrew is an outcast And compelled to hide away, For this wicked world doesn ' t appreciate The jackscrew of today. Why would I be a jackscrew? Oh, Brother, know you not? In my hope of uplifting humanity, then I ' d be Johnny — on — the — Spot. (Signed) Two Faculty Friends. Editors Note — There are two sides to every question. So while we thank our Faculty Friends for their offering, we take this liberty of voicing our side. Please Arthur, we ask, how could we use a class hymn? Hymns, that is, up to date progressive hymns, are all written in not less than five nor more than ten flats, ( See Spaulding ' s Sporting Library " How to write Hymns. " ) Flatly then, leaving school will be flat enough without a flatly hymn to make us feel flatter. Amen. mi □ □ □ a Two hundred twelve Qgg|i==3)[lD MlhUBZK 1912 IGNORAMUS SOCIETY.

The novices shall not end their probation period, (to be spent in fasting and meditation), nor become full members of the sisterhood, until the second half-year. No brutality shall be permitted in the solemn rite by which they are made regular inhabitants of the cloister. By-law. — A sacred and solemn hush must prevail about the cloister, and no males nor creatures even remotely resemb- ling males, i. e., brothers and cousins, shall enter there. 3. The sisterhoods and the objects of their religious zeal shall take food after their long fast and frantic labors, on the eve of Nov. 17th. There shall be no seizing of damsels by the locks and dragging them in to their feast before the time of November 10th. On that date the united and determined effort shall be made by the sisters at 12 o ' clock. 4. No novice shall be induced to take the veil before 12 o ' clock, noon, on November 1 8th. 5. The sisters must never, no, never, be led by enthusi- asm of their religious fervor to speak blasphemously of any rival sisterhood. ( Signed j Pan Hell Enic.

The possession of a large number of the first may indicate either exceeding good or bad fortune of the pos- sessor. If health is so bad as to be really responsible for a large number of the same, I extend my tenderest sympathy. • R 1912 0 If, however, a fertile imagination produces them, then do I offer sincerest good wishes and congratulations. Your future is bright. Go on and up, successful one, still up. For uh ex- cused same I refer you to a very complete work entitled " Evasion " by the Blacksheep. Sincerely, The Little Big Stick. THERE ' S A REASON. Why do we get a lecture on pilfering every once in a while? Prexy mislays his collar button just that often.

Before baking biscuits, imbed in each a small pinch of dynamite and a piece of flint. Set at each place a sledge hammer in addition to ' the usual trimmings. The biscuit may be successfully opened by a smart tap with the hammer. Or, perhaps, the husband is censorious. Throw one at him. If care is taken to strike the head or any other bony part with sufficient impetus he will be reduced to obedience immediately. Economical coffee can be prepared as follows : Steal a quart of chopped hay, a cent ' s worth of excelsior, (not the stringy kind), and a stale coffee cake. Chop up the last, mix with the other two. Burn till black. Add a vanilla cork shredded to flavor. Put same in ripe water, boil, and stir the fire till out. One tablespoon compound makes 1 6 cups coffee or 1 6 tablespoonsful make one cup of coffee. This lovely blue liquid will not produce nervousness but may result in drown- ing, as it is so- popular with its users. To dress oysters : Catch the oyster, choke it, then grip firmly by the right leg. Remove feathers with right hand, leaving feet attached. Feed it vinegar with a medicine drop- per till completely acidulated. Boil in catsup a while and serve with toadstools and hard sauce. Imitation Jack Rabbit. Tie two pounds of steak around a few hops, a shot gun shell and a small jackscrew. Bake ' em and serve with small shot. If cottontail rabbit is desired, substitute diluted cotton- seed oil for jackscrew. In any case use plenty of hops. These can be secured from beverages or grasshoppers.

Against the quiet sky in silhouette The campus trees stand silent. Lingering day Fades slowly in the West with all the fret And noisy hurly-burly which it brings; And while the sky is lit with day ' s last flush, The heart is filled with quaint imaginings Created by the universal hush. The twinkling lights gleam forth in brave array, Then, one by one, as tyrant Time commands, They vanish with their scintillant display — Save where some drudge who scarcely understands The differensce twixt day and night, plods on. The college halls are dark and lonely now ; Where life was, ' tis no more. All, All are gone ! Before the strength of Time we all must bow. An old man sits, eyes closed, with folded hands, Before the cheerful fire on the hearth ; A glowing coal, the last, flares into flame. Then flickers dimly down — and all is dark. 03 □ □ □ □ ' □ □ r J □ □ L Two hundred Thirty-five : 11 01 G n j THE SAD SAD END Two hundred thirty-nix Qggli ' IPO MIL.UDEK 1912 DD don : OD MIU4DEK 1912 DO □ □ □ u 0 Masomic Temple D tCATUR CLOTHES FOR YOUNG MEN AND MEN WHO STAY YOUNG Sold in Decatur at this store only $20 to $30.

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 Christian denomination where, at the least possible expense, all classes of young men and women could secure an education that would fit them for en tering at once upon some honorable vocation in life. The Academy offers courses preparing students for entrance to tlr-e School of Liberal Arts of the collegiate de- partment of the University or to the leading colleges and universities 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 required and elective courses in the different Schools of 1, Liberal Arts; 2, Engineering— 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 elect- ives to all classes of students. Its seven new and thoroughly up-to-date buildings with complete modern equipment are located in an attractive campus ot thirty-five acres which has long been not ed for its beautiful forest trees. Two new buildings, a gymnasium and a conservatory of Music, were finished last fall. The city of Decatur is very healthful, is centrally located, and is everywhere 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 1,144 with a faculty of over sixty members. It is co-educational, maintaining equal standards for men and women. Aston Hall offers delight- ful accommodations for young women at reasonable rates. Both young men and women find pleasant accommodations in the many Christian homes in the western part of the city. Catalogs and bulletins of the different schools will be promptly sent on application. Kindly state in which one interested. Address A. R.
