AN ELDERLY ROMANCE
T wixs on the river boat "J, D. Petersfl plying between Stockton and San Fran-
cisco, that the story began.
"Miz Harvey, let me make you acquainted with Mrs. Gay. Gay by name and
gay by nature,', said the first mate, with a chuckle at his little joke.
Mr. Harvey found himself being favored with a jolly smile, and a small card-
which read "Mrs, Carrie A. Gay, Advertising Agent, Real Estate Circulars a
Specialty." The first mate continued: "I hope you two will get along real con-
genial. Mrs. Gay is one of our regular passengers. Think a great deal of her-
always give her the best stateroom and aim to have a bit of music when she's
aboard. This gentleman, Mrs. Gay, is a fine fellow-just out from Alaska. lf
you will excuse me now, I will be attending to business," and he departed.
"I didn't quite catch the name-"
"Harvey, Frank P. Harvey-regular old fsour-dough' for thirty years-retired
miner at present-at your service, madamf' And they sat down and began talking
about Alaska, about Mrs. Gayls brother who lived there, and finally about Mrs.
Gay's husband, who had been stirred by the gold fever long after he was old
enough to know better-had left his wife and gone adventuring, and had died
before he could repent and come home. '
Mr. Harvey was a sympathetic, elderly gentleman with the usual "out-of-the-
world-for-a-time" air about him and obviously not quite comfortable in his stiff
shirt. From the first he greatly admired the "brave little womann beside him. He
could admire the good business sense that had grown in Carrie A. Gay after the
death of her husband and could, yes, hardened old boy that he was-could almost
feel affection for that gift that had kept her 4'Gay by name and gay by naturen
through it all. VVhen he looked at her she had a jolly air-humor lurked in her
blue eyes-but none of this detracted from the dignity of her white hair, and her
general air of being well kept. A plumed, purple hat, typified both this air of
dignity and that of lighter humor.
They dined that night at the Captain's table. The Captain had been a friend
of Mr. Gay and had always maintained that if he hadn't had a wife and child at
home he would have courted Carrie Gay long ago. During the course of the dinner
he asked, "VVell, how goes business F" And Mrs. Gay answered that she was
having trouble with "that man VVatts.', Mr. Harvey gathered that "that man
Watts" was a real estate dealer, and that Mrs. Gay had become so absorbed in
the glorious optimism of one of her real estate circulars that she had been led
into the unwise purchase of a particularly promising bit. Had he but known it,
it was this very confidence that made for Mrs. Gay's success. The things that
interested her were just the things that appealed to hundreds of gullible people.
She had a ready pen and so much New England conscience fshe had been a girl
in Corinth, Vermontj that everything she said breathed dignified honesty, and
she had implicit faith in everything she said. It was she who in her earlier days
as a business woman had made the sign for the old Frenchman, veteran of the
wars of 1870, who sat on the Scott Street corner. The old Yankee "Maple Syrup
and Pure Bee Honey' man had her to thank for his clientele of fundamentally
"down eastl' housewives. They could not resist the charm of maple groves at
sapping time that breathed through her little pamphlet.
The Captain's dinner was a jolly meal, funny stories, and compliments of the
older school were bandied about-and afterward they all retired to the salon.
The iirst mate brought in his musicg a young fellow, a pianist member of the jazz
band, was found to try his hand at the piano. The first mate sang tenor. Mr.
llarvey was found to possess a superb bass voice, while Mrs. Gay sang a waver-
ing soprano. A blond young man who had been working the territory with the
"King Improved Harmonicau added to the enjoyment of the evening. The Captain
sat near the door, with eyes closed, and hummed snatches of song throughout the
evening, but could not be prevailed upon to sing. After "Alice, VVhere Art Thou,"
at midnight, the party broke up.
The next morning found them at anchor in San Francisco Bay. Mr. Harvey
discovered a mutual taste in Mrs. Gay's choice of hotels-modern, a bit out of
town, hence at times almost quiet-and presided over by a friendly lady and her
two sons, who really cared whether one got one's letters or notg who looked a
bit askance if one asked for one's key a bit later than usual, and when one left
they even invited one to return.
"lim a plain man-simple in my tastes," said Mr. Harvey, and Mrs. Gay con-
fessed that she always got lost in the bustle of a larger place. So they stayed at
That morning Mrs. Gay tended to the business that had brought her to the
city, and they met for lunch at a once famous cafe-Mr. Harvey remembered it
from former days. It was now the essence of New England uprightness. having
been renamed the ?'Plymouth Rock." The superior waiter, the undigniiied bustle,
and the rather common crowd were disappointing to Mr. Harvey. He was sad
as he struggled, unaided. into his overcoat, while the waiter pocketed his tip and
brushed crumbs into Mrs. Gay's lap with cool indifference. It was disillusioning
to the gentleman from Alaska. He tried to regain his spirits by taking Mrs. Gay
to visit the "Diamond Palace," but here they were hounded about by suspicious
clerks. ln disgust he presented Mrs. Gay with violets from a corner stand, only
to lind that they were not fresh. In despair they climbed upon a rubber-neck
wagon, and here, lulled by the rumble of the great bus, Mr. Harvey regained his
complacency. Mrs Gay was feeling the early spring charm which had made her
maple syrup pamphlet a success, and was gayer than ever. They passed a most
pleasant afternoon. lt was as they were returning down Market Street, stopped
by the traffic block at a corner, that a gay phrase died upon her lips. "Mr, Vylatts,
there," she murmured in astonishment. XYith more astonishment she saw Mr.
Frank Harvey leap down from his lofty seat, and descend upon the unsuspecting
XYatts with a menacing look. XVatts discovered his presence and darted into the
crowd, Mr. Harvey stumbled, then caught him, the crowd surrounded them, half
interestedly, the traffic whistle blew, the bus lurched forward, and Mrs. Gay was
forcibly carried from the scene. Dazedly, she descended at the next stop and
made her way to the hotel. Much as a scene affected her dignity, she could not
help feeling the nobility of Mr. Harvey. It was courteous of him to espouse her
troubles. Her step-brother, for all he was an official of the great city of San
Francisco, had never done as much. He was weak compared to this virile gentle-
man from Alaska. just as the first bit of wonder as to how Mr. Harvey had
picked XYatts from the crowd so easily began to make itself felt to Mrs. Gay.
she pushed open the heavy door of the Sylvester and found herself confronted by
her niece. who turned her about and hurried her into a waiting limousine. saying
petulantly, "Your letter only came this morning. Father wants you to come to
dinner tonight. XVe don't see why you insist on staying in this dinky old hotel.
lt's so bourgeois, and you know how it annoys mother."
Her niece belonged most decidedly to the younger generation. She was seven-
teen and already had a touch of the "well preserved" air which so suited her aunt.
She was very outspoken with her family. Mrs. Gay was fond of her niece in a
way, and was otherwise so occupied that she did not mind being carried olif in
this peremptory fashion.
They had a pleasant dinner. There were no other guests. XYhen Mrs. Gay
saw her little step-brother with his rapidly growing bald spot she pitied him his
weakness and set about to amuse him. Despite the bits of conversation which
told him that his wife and daughter were plotting new plots. he was thoroughly
entertained. But just as Mrs. Gay had finally worked around to the event of the
afternoon, which was so growingly important to her, they were carried off to the
theater. Yirile, red-blooded heroes called to Mrs. Gay from the movie posters.
but she was not permitted to follow their lure. They saw an ultra-modern problem
play, and came away purged by pity and terror.
lt was late that night when the family car finally left Mrs. Gay at the Sylvester
and darted off, with a puff of scorn from the exhaust for the ladies tailoring shop
on the corner. The heavy door closed behind her and Mrs. Gay found herself
again confronted. This time the friendly lady-proprietor pushed the telephone
into her hands, HA gentleman been trying to get you all eveningf'
"VVhat can have happened to Mr. Harvey P" she wondered.
"T. L. Pusey of Pusey and Pusey, attorneys, speaking. Mrs. Gay. Can't we
handle your legal matters? So sorry you have become involved in this late un-
pleasantness. All our work absolutely confidential. XVhen can l come and call,
some time in the morning ?"
"Mr. Harvey! Poor fellow," she thought. 'fl don't think I am acquainted
with you, Mr. Pusey. I don't understand," replied Mrs. Gay.
A young gentleman wearing a green velour hat sprang out from the corner
by the elevator, book in hand. Mrs. Gay was startled. "No, no, I'm quite certain
l don't know you.', she concluded, and put up the receiver. She turned. Could
this fellow be a reporter? XVhat had happened to Mr. Harvey? VVhatever it
was, certainly she must be partly to blame. lrle had incited the lawless act. "Miz
lflarvey tells me-'l he began.
XVith disapproval darkening her erstwhile friendly countenance the hotel lady
interrupted: "Two gentlemen in the parlor to see you, Mrs. Gay." She turned
and followed to the door, thus efficiently blocking the approach of the young man
with the velour hat.
XVith trepidation Mrs. Gay entered the half-lighted parlor. A gentleman got
up shakily, with the aid of a cane, and a younger fellow bounded up furtively
"Oh yes. it is-it is. T knew he would come back," she thought, but she said,
"NVhy Mr. Harvey, however did you get into such a state P"
'fOh, this is nothing." answered Mr. Harvey, looking at his cane. "XYatts, pull
up a chair for Mrs. Gay. VVe have some business to attend to." And Mrs. Gay
saw that the younger fellow was NVatts, looking a bit gray and unwilling to meet
her eye. She sat down. A
"Now jimi, about this land of yours," began Mr. Harvey, though there were
many other things first, in the mind of Mrs. Gay. "VVatts here says he has been
carrying your deed about with him for several weeks, so we just stepped into the
City Hall and had it fixed up this afternoon. Give Mrs. Gay the deed, Vlfatts.
Donlt worry about it now, Mrs. Gay. VVatts will stop here tonight, and tomorrow
we can get in ,touch with your lawyer and finish it up. You have evidently made
a good buy. Mrs. Gay. There's a real estate fellow in the lobby now waiting to

"I saw a man there as I came in. I thought he must be a reporter. It was
very foolish of me but I was so worried-'I then realizing that business was the
safest ground, "I don't think I want anything to do with real estate for a while.
XVhat would you consider, Mr. Harvey ?',
"lYatts, tell the fellow Mrs. Gay won't see him, and go on up to the rooms-
"Yes, Mr. Harvey. Good evening, Mrs. Gay," said VVatts almost respectfully.
"Bad egg, that fellow," said Mr. Harvey, as he disappeared. The question
which had been troubling Mrs. Gay came out. "You must have known him

and trying to make her way in the worldln
Mrs. Gay knew very well that she was not this lone, lorn creature, but sym-
pathy was comforting, and after a fashion she was alone in the world where
there was little enough chivalry. She was not primarily a woman of affairs.
She was carried back to her girlhood-gay and helpless. "Yes," she sighed, "it
has been hard since poor W'illiam's death," and so much did she believe herself
that common sense did not even rear its head at this. "Sometimes I wonder
what is to become of me. After I go to bed at night I worry about things till
itls no wonder my hair is white. 1t's a hard thing to be alonef' "Poor, brave
little woman," murmured Frank P. Harvey. Then after a while-"I'm alone i11

with an ardor which took no account of age. "Do you think you ever could-

Later when they went through the lobby to the elevator, the interested friend-
liness had returned to the countenance of the lady proprietor. 'fYou're up very
late,'l remarked Mrs. Gay.
"l had some business to attend to," she smiled significantly.
"Congratulate us," burst out Mr. Harvey. 'fVVe are a happy couple."
The next day there was much business to attend to. They lunched at the
Plymouth Rock and found the waiters particularly affable. They went to the
Diamond Palace, and found the clerks most trusting and helpful. The old man
at the corner flower stand showered them with fresh violets. Later in the after-
noon they called upon Mrs. Gay's step-brother in his modern. over-heated office.
and left him in an almost invigorated condition.
At seven that evening the family limousine purred up to the Sylvester and,
with the step-brother and the friendly landlady as attendants, and the sophisti-
cated niece, that man Vlfatts, and the Captain of the HI. D. l'eters'l as guests, the
ceremony was performed by the Congregational minister.
Later they boarded the river-steamer "bl, D. Peters." The Captains table was
a marvel to behold. The music in the salon lasted late, and after "Alice, XYhere

THE SPIRIT OF HAPPINESS
ULDA works in my kitchen, or, mayhap, in yours. Edythe is my cousin or
dearest friend. Perhaps, she is your niece-it may be your daughter.
Hulda is a tlaxen-haired, broad-bosomed amazon, who speaks with a decided
Ifdythe is a petite brunette. Her eyes sparkle with the joy of living. In
comparison. lIulda's blue ones seem lustreless and dead. One scarcely dares to
mention in the same breath the tiny arched feet of Edythe and the large flat feet
of Iflulda. The result is ludicrous.
Hulda's voice is harsh. loud and unmusical. XYhen she laughs it is as the
clashing of drums and cymbals. When Iidythe laughs it is as if the wind were
rippling the strings of a magic lute, and her voice is low, sweet and cultivated.
But the world holds happiness for both of them!
On Thursday night "Swede, Larson comes "a-courtinn' the maid, Hulda.
On Thursday evening John llurke-VVorthington calls on Edythe.
The hour before their arrival is filled with the business of becoming beautiful-
lovely for the eyes of their respective suitors.
Ilulda is resplendent in a brand new pink georgette blouse fmarked down
from seven dollars and tifty cents to tive dollars and ninety-eight centsj. Yards
of crocheted cotton lace and blue ribbon all quite conspicuous through its thinness.
Pearl ear-rings, huge ones, accentuate the generous size of her ears. She wears.

Edythe stands before her pier glass admiring Qshe can't help it, you knowib
the lovely vision which the mirror reflects. She is in yellow and reminds one of
the springetime daffodil, so graceful, so delicate is she. On the bosom of her
dress are the orchids which John has sent. 'fStupid,,' she breathes, Uwhy couldn't
he have sent me lilies--of-the-valley? He should know that I'm tired of orchids."
Eight o'clock arrives and with the hour there comes a gentle ring at the front
door-bell, and simultaneously a vigorous knocking at the back door. Two hearts
flutter a wee bit at the sounds.
"Swede" is admitted by llulda herself. He enters stamping the snow from
his boots and beating it from his shoulders. After he has removed his mackinaw.
he draws forth a paper-bag from one of his pockets and hands it to Ilulda. "You

John llurke-Worthington presents his card to the butler who admitted him
and waits in the reception hall-somewhat impatiently, it must be confessed.
Edythe enters and greets him graciously. "I remembered your fondness for

And who shall judge which is the happier, Hulda or Edythe?

THE SACRED VALLEY
.xL.xN1 was very. very old, and as he sat on the stone steps of his hut his sad
face bore a satisfied look such as is worn by those who are finished with life.
His dark skin was wrinkled, and contrasted strangely with his white hair and long
beard. His eyes were sparkling black, but they had a tired dreamy look. Ile
puffed at a little black pipe slowly and almost mechanically, for his steady gaze
was on the glittering blue of the ocean, many miles away. At length two tears
formed in his eyes and forced their way down his swarthy cheeks. For Kalani
was thinking again of his dreams.
For three nights. while he slept. he had seen schools of red fish. with one black
carp among them, and always the red fish brings death. Today ended the tenth
year since Lehua, his wife, had died, and for ten years he had longed to follow
her. Now, at last, he had dreamed of the red fish. Perhaps at last he could join
Suddenly he wakened from his reverie, rose from his seat and straightened
his bent form. He started slowly across the stony plain to the house of Kahuna-
nui who was wisest of all the Hawaiians in matters concerning dreams and omens.
He was older and more bent even than Kalani, and his matted white hair fell
about his dark. pock-marked face. His cruel black eyes Hashed out from under
bushy white eyebrows, and gave a sinister, uncanny expression to his face. Now
he was seated among his stone altars, offering prayer to the god of rain, and
asking water to put an end to the drought. VVhen he had finished, he listened to
Kalani's tale of the red fish, shaking his head during the tale.
"You will go to join your beloved Lehuaf' he said. in his soft, musical lan-
guage. "but l like not the presence of the black carp. lt bespeaks the wrath of
gods who must be satisfied before your death. You must journey to the Sacred
Falls of Keanoho in the Sacred Yalley. Only then may you die in peace."
.Immediately Kalani set out on his pilgrimage. At the entrance to the valley
stood an old stone temple where he offered prayer and a sacrifice of fish and
"Nam," From here, the road led into a grove of stately kukui nut trees which
seemed like sentinels of the temple. Their light green leaves trembled slightly in
the afternoon breeze. Ripened black nuts were everywhere on the grassy, shaded
ground. For some distance the way was bordered with guava, coffee. and lantana
bushes, and here the ground was covered with yellow guavas, while wild coffee
berries and many-hued lantana blossoms made bright spots of color against the
somber, prevailing hue of the bushes. Kalani passed througha forest of mountain
apple trees, but the inviting scarlet fruit on the ground was unheedel by the
Farther up the valley, koa trees grew near the path, and beautifully colored
landshells could be seen on their branches. among the feathery green foliage. At
every turn of the path stood a big boulder which served as an altar, and on every
one Kalani placed a green leaf and a small stone. For the offering on each altar
meant homage paid to some god. and herein was the significance of the journey
to the Falls of Keanoho. And this is still the custom in the Sacred Valley.
At length the path met the dry bed of the river, and Kalani continued his way
on its smooth stones. Towering mountains. their slopes covered with green ferns,
formed the walls of the valley and seemed almost to meet overhead. for they shut
out everything but a narrow strip of blue sky.
Suddenly Kalani heard in the distance the sound of falling water, and his
hands trembled as he placed his offering on the last altar. llis lagging step be-
came more youthful. and eager anticipation lent him the strength to scramble
over an earthen embankment, and look beyond, There the Falls of Keanoho
rippled noisily down their rocky wall into a deep black pool at the base. On three
sides of the pool were dark caverns, formed by the wear of time in the Walls of
the mountains. .Xs Kalani watched he heard a crash of thunder, and soon it
began to rain, and he knew that the prayer for rain from the plain below would
be answered. Slowly he advanced, his eyes fastened on the silfht before him.
until he reached the pool. Then he raised his arms skyward.
"The gods are goodfl thought Kalani. and with a tired cry of "l.ehua" he
sank into the bottomless pool.
For the Sacred Valley of the Falls of Keanoho was for Kalani the Yalley of
the Shadow of Death.

But we tossed our heads and gossiped very audibly.
It was only in the late afternoon that we gave up our starched skirts and
dignity for warm dresses and proper walks with fathers.
After that first Sunday we took the Spring for granted. The whole fresh
world was ours for play.
ACH summer there came one day of paramount importance. My father came
home at noon, came driving the buggy, with a team of bays or blacks or
A hurried luncheon gave way to hurried packing. My fresh gingham was
slipped on, the door locked and the journey to Mammoth begun.
I waved excitedly to every child I saw. I was in a frenzy of impatience when
we stopped to talk to a farmer on business. But soon, on the white road leading
straight to the mountains, we settled to blissful enjoyment of the dust and heat.

down a locust avenue, out to a desert stretch, up the Red l'Iill. Here we stopped
to chat with the new French vineyard man. VVe drove through a great apple
orchard, a few last alfalfa fields, and then the desert until we were in the lap of
the mountains, Round Valley.
It was dusk and father touched up the horses. The air was sweet and very
clear, until night blurred the mountains' outlines and changed the road's direction
and appearance. I was awakened by many barking dogs, by the hulloos of chil-
dren, and exclamations of Mrs. Roberts, our hostess for the night. I drank deep
of her famous Jersey cream. I began to renew old acquaintance with the big
swing, with the dear little stream, with three collies, with the staring barefoot
country children, so much wiser than I and so much more modest. I loved the
least pebble in the brook. It was romance to me, that strange big dairy farm,
snug under Mount Tom.
Yery early, before the dew had given itself to the sun, we crawled up the
Sherwin hills. Pines grew in size as we ascended. XVe were in a line forest
when we slid down to the river bottom, following the yet unlit canyon to great

lVe passed the Casa Diablo hot mud springs in the early afternoon. The air
was crisping. Clumps of manzanita outlined the hill curves. The creek appeared
with a crash of sound as we topped a curve. Some miles up the pine-edged white-
face stream was Mammoth. where we would spend two happy weeks.
That all-embracing journey holds out fresh possibilities. I shall travel it on
horse-back soon, and delight in memories more than realities.
N .x happy childhood, of all the seasons, the golden-lighted autumn gave me the
greatest joy. Unconsciously I responded to the color that swept over the
country in the early fall.
The slender vivid yellow poplars edging the Fields of grain and pacing down
the distant hillsides stand in memory as the dominant notes of the glowing Valley
The clear air silhouetted the purple mountains. The creeks were less tumultu-
ous since the snow had long melted and they gloried in the beauty of their banks.
The wild rose-bushes Hecked with crimson haws, with yellow-leaved black-trunked
willows, red-brown and yellow rushes drooping far over to divide their lovely
selves in the flattering stream's slants.
Great cottonwoods leaf by leaf changed from living green to clear yellow.
They shaded the dusty roads and later showered them with rustling leaves so the
children loved to drive past slowly.
There were a very few roadside llowers there, golden as the sunlight that
through the day drifts down upon the fruitful fields.

My path soon separated me from the others and l struggled on against a tre-
mendous north wind that shook me and pinched me and nipped my nose and held
me stock still every few yards.
At length my gate was reached, and I was relieved to slip inside and start up
the long path, through the poplars, that led to the dining room window.
Perhaps the snow would have begun falling again, and the house would be

THE DESERT OF LONGING FOREVER
11RoUGH busy thoroughfares and peaceful lanes they traveled together, the
Man and the Goddess. After many moons of journeying they came to the
country of vast meadows, uncultivated fields, and deep forests. Happy was the
Man in his days of travel, heavy was his sleep in beds of straw. For by night
they rested at simple peasant homes along the path. Curly-headed children peered
at them shyly over the rough board at supper time. They ate the simple food of
the country, milk, cheese, black-bread and clear honey. Then, after the night,
came their departure in the early morning followed by the good wishes of the
family. How happy he was! llut often as the day grew old he would falter in
his weariness, but the Goddess lent him a helping hand over the rough places in
the path, and many would have been his falls without her. Sometimes a high
mountain must be crossed, or a river forded, but Man was weak and only suc-
ceeded with the smiling help of the Goddess.
Then one day they passed by a beautiful park, and among the trees was an
exquisite house. A girl stood at the gateway and beckoned to Man. He looked
questioningly at the Goddess, but she pointed ahead to where the last rays of the
dying sun shone on the gray head of a woman, shelling peas in front of her home.
But the girl smiled, and Man followed her toward the house. The Goddess sadly
held her steps to the path.
Early the next morning the Goddess arose, refreshed by her sweet sleep, and
set on her way. NVhen the sun was high in the heavens Man awoke in his downy
bed. His head was heavy with revelry, he longed to lie in bed and drowse. Sud-
denly he remembered the Goddess and her departure! He must hnd her. So,
with a bound he sprang out of the low window and rushed up the rocky pathway
whither she had gone. Hatless he was, in his haste, and the hot sun -beat merci-
lessly upon him. Soon came welcome shade but here sharp bushes tore his
clothing and his flesh as he hastened on. And all day he pursued her toiling over
the rough path unaided, stumbling, but ever pressing on.
At night fall he sought shelter at a tiny cottage, but he was not welcomed
without the Goddess. He had not known that before. He had trusted her so
After a night's rest by the roadside and a scant breakfast of nuts and berries
he hurried on. How fast she must have gone! NVould he ever find her? And
now the road grew rougher. Trees had fallen across his path, boulders blocked
his way. With toil he pressed onward, and at sunset he faced a high hill. The
path led up the side of high cliffs, almost impassable, loose stones denied Man a
foothold. VV'as his journey to end here? He could not go alone. But lo! there
at the foot of the hill was the Goddess. He had found her at last. XVith a glad
cry he started forward, caught his foot on a trailing vine and fell. Then came
W'hen he opened his eyes it was twilight. Pale stars winked at him from a
near sky. A tiny crescent was just visible above him. He turned his eyes to the
hill looming up in the gray light. Disappearing over the brow of the hill was the
Goddess. She had gone, this once-met Goddess of Gpportunity, into the Land of
Fulfilment, leaving him in the Desert of Longing, forever.

among the pebbles of the beach, a wonderful beach, as multi-hued as a rainbow,
for among the soft blues and grays of the ordinary pebbles jutted the brilliant red
and yellow carnelians like tiny tongues of fire. A gray pall of smoke was creep-
ing over the mountains, down toward the lakeg for the dreaded forest fires were
raging once again in the Sierras.
XYhere the huge trees lifted their proud heads to gaze forever on the stars
stood a large log cabin. Morning glory and honeysuckle vines rioted over the
walls and the tangled tendrils entwined lovingly over the front door. Cats, puppies
and chickens slept blissfully together in the dooryard.
Two children stood on the rocky shore where a rude wharf extended out into
the water, the boy, a sturdy urchin of fourteen, watching the heavy cloud of
smoke as it drifted sullenly over the mountains, but the slender girl of twelve was
gazing quietly at the ever-changing surface of the lake with tender eyes.
"Look at it, Claire." spoke the boy with a certain fierceness in his tone. "Sec

"No, Roy," calmly answered the little girl, "the lake is our friend and will
protect us from the wicked fire dragon."
"just like a girl. All you think of is the lake, and the trees and forests that
are burning up don't worry you a bit. l hate itg l hate fire and l wish Dad would
let me help them fight it."
"'l'here comes the service launch," answered Claire, "perhaps Daddy will be
The two children watched the "Gray Goose," the United States Forest Service
launch, as it approached from the main station far across the lake. The boy
restlessly paced the beach, but the girl, whose eyes were as deep and blue and
fathomless as the waters of the lake itself, stood gazing at the glittering wavelets.
The old mountaineers who loved the lake with an unspeakable devotion were
wont to say that Claire's eyes changed with every mood of the sparkling waters.
XVhen the lake was golden with the morning sun, in Claire's eyes danced shafts
of golden lightg if the lake lay gray and brooding underneath the dull November
sky, the child's eyes were gray and brooding, toog if the waters were calm and
still or lashed into black fury by the winds, the girl's eyes reflected the serene blue
of the reflected sky. or were dilated and black with repressed passion.
The children's father was a forest ranger and it was from him Claire had
inherited her intense love for the mountain lake on whose shores she had been
born and her mother had died.
Hour after hour she sat gazing far into its mysterious depths and worshiping
it every hour of the day, from the moment when the rising sun gilded the surface
into a mass of molten gold until the tender moon sent it quivering in silver ripples.
lfor several years she had loved it as one loves that which is wholly and supremely
beautiful, a beloved friend and protector.
Then one summer a party of campers had spent part of their vacation near
their cabin and had become very friendly with the ranger and his two children.
The two young boys in the party played frequently with Roy and Claire and the
two children were very fond of these new playmates. XVith much labor they had
brought a canoe along and looked forward to spending many hours on the lake.
The ranger, however, had warned the1n not to use it on a mountain lake.
"The thunder storms are sudden and fierce,'l he said, "we never know just
what may happen within twenty minutes. The water becomes far too rough for
a powerful launch and it would be certain death for anybody inexperienced in
such matters to venture out."
The two boys were loth to forego their long premeditated plans and after pri-
vately deciding that the ranger was "too darn iinickyn secretly set out to explore
the lake in the canoe.
An hour after their departure a thunder storm sprang up without a moments
warning. changing the gay, sparkling lake into a roaring demon. lt was soon
over and the sun shone forth as if nothing had happened, when a white-faced
woman tottered to the log cabin.
"Oh, Mr. Handy," she implored the ranger, "please fmd my boys. The canoe
is gone and no one has seen either Harold or Charles since morning. If, after
what you told us, they went out in that awful storm-" she stopped horror-
stricken and began to sob hysterically.
Leaving the frantic woman to the care of the old Indian maid Mr. Handy had
telephoned the main Forestry Office to send out the launch. When it arrived they
set out to scour the lake. although these seasoned mountaineers felt that the search
was hopeless. After three heart-breaking hours the launch returned towing the
canoe which they had found Hoating far out in the lake. Of the boys there was
no trace, for the mountain lake never gives up its victims.
That night Nr. llandy had found Claire gazing somber-eyed upon the placid
"XYhat is it, little daughter ?"
"lt's the lake. Daddy. You said the lake was our friend, that it would never
hurt us. and now it has taken both Mrs. Raymond's boys. Oh, Daddy, it makes
me afraid l"
The ranger had then drawn the trembling child close in his arms.
"The lake will always befriend those who love her, little daughter, for those
who love her never break her laws. It is only those who break her commandments
that she punishes. Remember that, and do not fear our friendf,
During the three years following her first tragedy, Claire gradually lost this
fear and now as she stood on the wharf waiting with Roy for her beloved father,
her gaze lingered lovingly upon the azure water.
As the "Gray Goose" docked, Mr. Handy, worn and grimy with several weeks'
constant tire fighting, stepped ashore. He kissed his little daughter and turning
to Roy said:
"Son, get on your old corduroys and be ready to go back with me in two hours.
Ylfe are short of lighters and even a fourteen-year-old boy can help a lot."
'fHurrah!,' shouted Roy. "You bet l'll be ready, Dad. Gee, Sis! won't I
work. They'll want me to help again", and away he dashed.
"Must I stay alone, Daddy ?" said Claire.
"No, dear, Mrs. Forster, the supervisor's wife, will come over before dark to
take you back to the station. l'd take you over with me now but we are not going
to stop but go straight across the lake. Are you afraid to stay alone until supper
KNO, Daddy. l have the lake and l'1l sit on the shore and listen to the beautiful
secrets she tells me."
"Yery well, dear, you will never be lonely with the lake to talk to you. Some
day perhaps she may reward your love with a beautiful gift. Vvho knows ?"
The "Gray Goosel' left in less than two hours and Claire wandered down
beside the bright shore.
Supper time came but with it no Mrs. Forster, darkness fell but still no shrill
whistle broke the silence of the night, only the rustle of the wind in the trees
and the ripple of the lake. Claire was not lonely, the lake crooned a lullaby as
tenderly as could the mother who had slipped off into the Shadowy Valley so long
ago. The little girl said her prayers, whispered good-night to her guardian lake
and was soon asleep.
Over the hills crept the cruel red glare, until the great Hames turned the lake
into an angry crimson, but Claire slept on. Suddenly the wind became stronger
and the fire shrieked like a hend from the infernal regions as one forest giant
after another bowed under' its scourge. The hills in back of the cabin blazed
tiercely and the choking smoke swirled thicker and thicker.
Claire awoke gasping for breath and leaping out of bed saw the cabi11 was
nearly surrounded by flames. VYhat could she do, alone and a mere child in the
midst of this awful destruction? The only avenue of escape was the lake, but
since the tragic death of the Raymond boys Claire had feared to venture in a
rowboat or canoe alone! She looked at the hills, a blazing mass, the heat so
intense that already she could feel her skin burn with its ferocity and the
smoke so thick that she could scarcely breathe, she looked at the lake, cool in
spite of its crimson color on the surface, and hesitated no longer.
Seizing a towel and murmuring a frenzied little prayer, the child dashed to
the wharf where her father's new boat was tied. Cntying the rope Claire shoved
out, crawling down in the boat, the damp towel over her face, while the boat
drifted off into the darkness.
All through that night of terror she lay in the boat, trusting herself to the
mercy of the friend she had loved and yet feared for so long.
Early in the morning, just as dawn was breaking, Claire heard the siren of
the "Gray Goose." The thick smoke prevented her seeing the launch and the
noise of its machinery drowned her cries.
A merciful Providence, however, guided the two boats near together and soon
Claire was clasped tightly within her father's arms.
"My dearest." said the man brokenly. "what merciful angel guided you away
from the tire FM
"lt was the lake, Daddy. l just got in the boat and the lake drifted the boat
away from the shore right to you. The lake is my friend and because I love her
she saved me from the fire and let me live."

Neff. when I was very young, our family received a catalogue from a gen-
tleman's clothing house. lt was a beautiful booklet. The gentlemen all wore
peg-top trousers and flat hats and they nonchalantly strolled about in well known
places in or about the city of San Francisco. .I curled up in the family armchair

tion of one of 1ny greatest dreams. There was a youth in one of "Our high-
waisted modelsfi a handsome youth he was, too. There was also a beautiful
young lady, and the handsome youth was leading her past the Campanile at Mills
College. So this was all in the daily life of a college girl-the thrill of it. I knew
immediately what my future should be. Although I was very young at the time
I never forgot. It was this determination that held me through the agonies of
high school "math.'

to' lead young gentl men past the Campanile, but the long-felt determination never
faltercd. Presently the1'e was a "prom.' I scorned the male infants from home.
My room-mate offered me a Hman." My first evening dress, a full moon, the man
in perfect evening Clothes, and the Campanile chiming eleven seemed even more
perfect than the picture of long ago. The night came. lt was rainy. There was
no moon. The "man" was only a bit different from the Children at home. Only
the chimes were stoically cheerful when they struck eleven. This was the only
attempt of 1ny lireshman year. It was a failure. I was despondent. I was over-
worked. I became a Sophomore man hater-and thus slipped by another year.
Then l became a junior, dignified, Capable. I knew I could do it. A friend of
mine sent out a friend of hers to call. Ile was an influential cub reporter on one
of the dailies. In preparation for the occasion I took "The Ilrothers KHTZIIIHZOOIT

and went out and sat on the Oval. The scene of action should be near in this Case.
A serious academic air and the afternoon sun pouring over the shoulders of HEI

shadows fell upon the Oval and it was the dinner bell that finally Called me away.
I learned later that a frothy young Freshman had met 1ny man as he came from
the car and had kindly helped him to find me. They had hunted at the Lake, at
Sunnyside. and all along the brook. I am still that junior, but nothing has hurt
1ny indomitable courage. It has just occurred to me that perhaps it is not essential
that I be led past our Campanile on foot. I have heard of the friend of a distant
member of 1ny family who is the possessor of a large and powerful Car. Perhaps
some day next year he will drive up to Senior porch, preferably when the roses

waisted models"-and those few girls who do notice us will either say unkind
things about my hat or smile tolerantly at an lndian summer romance.
Truer still. something tells me that it will be summer on the Oval. and there

DAYS AT HOME
X111 feels a certain distinction in arriving at the age when one is conscious of
having reminiscences. lt is like the feeling that a girl has when she puts up
her hair for the first time. Although proud, she is just a little bit afraid that
someone will laugh at her.
The "Good Old Days" have been just behind everyone, from Rameses until
now. No doubt the new days that have followed have been far fuller and more
serviceable than the old. lt seems to me, as l remember the time when l began to
notice things, that I arrived on the scene just at the end of one set of "Good Old
Days." To me they are represented by certain afternoons when I was decked out
with laboriously curled hair and a very short. stiftiy starched dress with embroid-
ery on it with a big blue sash and a sailor hat with long streamers. One's Mamma
wore white gloves and a hat that probably perched fashionably on the tip top of
her head. It was all most decorous. One sat with feet dangling on an upholstered
rocking chair that refused to preserve its balance. but was too staid to behave in
an interesting way, as those at home did with a little coaxing. One's elders carried
on conversation about other elders. lt was hard to understand because sometimes
they would shrug their shoulders and merely smile instead of telling each other
about the most interesting part of the story. Sometimes they talked about one's
self and used big words and smiled knowingly, thinking one didn't understand.
And one grew somewhat uncomfortable and thought that she really did not know
so much about people after allg then tea would be served and one would try to
remember to say, "Thank youfi and not look too hungry while trying to locate
the cookie with the most pink frosting on it.
The "Good Qld Days" have passed. Even we who have not known them well
enough to love them are sorry that they are gone. But we have never experienced
the chagrin of passing a "day at home." with tea all prepared, without a single
caller. Even party calls are almost a thing of the past, except when the callee
is some dear old lady who is sure to be at home. One's intimates would be too
likely to be in a dishevelled state over some new book on llolshevism or deep in
preparations for the next party to be a ht subject for a call. As for a 'iDay at
llome,', who would have time to put aside just for that? Many a hostess misses
the little courtesy of acknowledgment for entertainment. Acquaintances that in
the old, leisurely days could easily have been fostered are stifled for want of
opportunityg and yet would that same hostess be willing to give up her weekly
lecture or university extension classes or motor trips in order to have "a day at

My cherished hat-bagl I grasp it Iirmly in one hand and try to put the things

is accomplished and I ponder over how I can carry so frail a bundle. My eye
alights upon a serene and covered pillow. leaning nonehalantly against the wall.
The long-sought pillow-slip! I haven't taken it off the pillow. My laundry stages
a rapid-change scene in which the treasured hat-bag is mortally wounded.
With feverish hands I grasp the bulging and gluttonous pillow-slip and swing
it over my shoulder. I speed down the hall and. as I reach the stairs. look back
to see the girls all along the corridor, sticking their heads out of their doors,
wondering who is on the other side of that cloud of dust. livery fourth step on
the stair-case was born unluckyg Iilll sure to land on it.

harmony of it as of sweet melodies.
Then slowly, shyly, the fairy folk came peeping out from among the flowers
and from behind the marble pillars where there was yet the depths of night.
They were dressed in the softest satin of the petals of flowers, and their wings
were like the wings of butterHies. And as they danced on the shores of this lake
in the wood, their scarfs of the purest dew sparkled in the moonlight like soft
jewels from the rainbow. They sang as they played and danced, and the cadence
of their fairy folk songs was like the music of the rustling leaves. like the lapping
of water on a gentle shore, like mystic music unheard, but strangely, tauntingly
familiar to the ear.

A SPRING DREAM
1fR.xc:1:.xNT song wafted through the forest, and the traveler sniffed at it
eagerly. He was young and brave and ambitious, and as he strode along the
dappled path he was filled with great hopefulness. On either side of the way
were tall bushes on which birds of all colors bloomed in gay profusion, filling the
air with a melody of color. Flowers high in the trees poured forth joyous carols
of perfumeg and the youth went on smiling. There were few wayfarers in the
wood, and those whom the young adventurer met were old and carcworn, and
returned his cheery greeting with weary grunts of satisfaction.
The fairies in the forest regretted the attitude of the worldly wise travelers
towards the handsome youth, so they decided to reward his exuberance with magic.
They led him from the regular path to a spot in the deep, green wood where all
the fairies were wont to hold high carnival. It was a meadowy place, surrounded
by tall trees, and no human eyes had ever beheld it. In the center of the grass a
clear spring bubbled up in crystal coolness. the sound and clearness of the water
mingling harmoniously with the birds that bloomed on the bushes and the flowers
that sang on the trees. As the young mortal entered the magic place a spell
was cast over him, and he became one of the careless fairies. They danced and
frolicked joyfully. never ceasing their pleasure until Spring had turned to Summer.

11112 peace that follows a long-fought battle had entered the liristol home that
bleak November evening. The narrow, dimly-lighted living room had an air
of snug satisfaction at having kept out the storm. At the far end of the room,
near the fireplace, sat Daniel llristol, smoking an old pipe and rocking slowly to
and fro in an old cane-backed chair whose rhythmic squeak had sung two genera-
tions of children to sleep. :Xt frequent intervals he extended a long leg between
the fire and the ball with which his two children were playing. l le had no apparent
interest in his surroundingsg he was too tired even to look preoccupied. lle had
grown old in his youth.
There was one feature of this house that was not to be found in the home of
any other farmer in liastbrook. That was a piano. Anna Bristol had been given
a great square piano by her father on her wedding day, and it was still the greatest
of her worldly possessions. A door opened slowly and a beam of light illumined
an old jar of tobacco that stood upon the piano. Mrs. Bristol came in and set
beside the jar an oil lamp that had lost one handle but that could still boast of
four elaborately decorated feet. She seated herself silently at the piano and
began playing KlacDowell's "At an Old Trysting Place." with that stiff regularity
that comes from lack of practice. Almost immediately Sara, her whole four-year-
old spirit exulting. ran over to the piano and crawled beneath it to hear the ring
of the notes better. ln a voice as regular as her music Mrs. llristol said:
"Sarah, don't stay under there, l'm afraid you'll interfere with the pedals."
Sara was quite sure that the pedals left plenty of room for her. but she soon
began to emerge reluctantly. copper toes first. Not daunted by one reproof. Sara
fiattened one ear against the piano and stopped the other with her finger. The
effect must have been all that was desired, for her little dark face refiected the
bliss of Raphael's angels.
Danny, who was a year older. occupied himself with logs of baywood that
were burning in the fireplace, prodding them with a poker, and pulling them
forward on the grate so that their fragrance began to fill the room.
"VVhat are you trying to do, Dan, smoke us out ?" was Mr. l3ristol's inquiry.
"Nope, l just like the smell."
"lint you're filling the room with smoke, sonf'
"I knowg but, Daddy, so's your pipe."
"l guess that's true. too,'l said Mr. llristol. and they both continued their

an outward appearance of lethargy that would have made any occurrence seem
"That's a fire. Anna. You'd better take the children out and l'll pick up a
few things in case it comes this far," he said calmly. Mrs. llristol helped the
children into their coats and hats, and unfastening the door-bolt she said:
f'You children go up on the road and wait for us. l'm going to stay a bit and
The children went out hand-in-hand and picked their way up the long, wind-
ing path that led uphill through the thick underbrush to the road. The foliage
was so dense that the house was invisible from the road, and the children soon felt
far from home. The sky was aglow from the fire and the air was filled with the
voices of refugees, some fully clad, some in bathrobes and wrappers, who had
crowded into farm wagons and were now passing slowly along the road toward
town. They had huddled together to avoid the cold, and were bewailing their
woes in muflied tones. Sara clung to her brother's arm in fright.
"Oh, Dannyf' she whispered, "I'm a-scared !"
HI-Iush up, Sara, you haveuyt got nothin' to be a-scared of. jest think o' these
people-they ain't got any houses. . They're all burned out. Vile got a house
"But I want Daddy and Anna-Mother, and 1,111 a-scared our house will burn."
"NVell, maybe we better go look," said Dan.
They wound their way carefully down the slope, and as they turned at the
last bend in the path they saw the little house burst into flame. The underbrush
had been smoldering and had at last caught the house afire. The children called
for "Daddy" and "Anna-Motherf, but when no answer came and the fire came
near them they made their way up to the road again and wandered slowly along,
waiting for the last farm wagon that never came. VVhen they arrived in town they
became separated in the crowd and fell-under the protection of a mushroom
charity organization and were later adopted by two families.
Charles Bristol, a younger brother of their father, upon hearing of the death
of Daniel and Anna, searched the country for the children, but did not find them.

During the sixteen years that followed the fire Charles Bristol had established
himself as an attorney in a city not far from Eastbrook. On a certain autumn
evening he was returning on an interurban railroad to the university town in
which his home was situated. Upon arriving at his station he started toward the
door of the train, but was interrupted by a voice behind him:
"Pardon, sir, I believe this is your brief-casef' The voice was that of a young
man whom Bristol had seen many times before alighting at that station. The two
left the train and walked along together.

"I don't suppose you could have known my niece and nephew," said Bristol.

A week passed and the festive night arrived upon which the university was
to hold its biggest rally. There had been a great tumult along Howison Avenue
earlier in the evening, but the bit of university populace that lived up and down
the avenue had left, and an all-but-depressing silence had settled upon the whole
neighborhood. ,The tranquil somberness of the Bristol home Qwhich it always
assumed when both son and daughter were gone for the eveningj was accentuated
by the almost unnoticeable presence of Marion Masters, a student and friend who
lived with the family. as she sat studying in the living room. Mr. and Mrs. llristol
were sitting before the fire. pretending to read the evenings news.
The din of the doorbell broke the spell of silence. Mr. Bristol went to the
door and returned presently, bringing with him 'lohn St. Clair. The customary
introductions were made rather hastily, and the four of them sat down imme-
diately. They began to discuss the disappearance of the children of Daniel
llristol as if they had all been waiting for an opportunity to seek a solution for
"ls that baywood you have burning there." St. Clair asked.
"Yes," llristol replied, "we cut one of the trees down a while ago."
"',l'hat smell-the fragrance of burning baywoodf' said St. Clair, "always
reminds me of Ill-Y childhood, of a dimly-lighted room, an old squeaking rocking
chair. lt calls up memories of a room that I don't recognize as any of the rooms
in my father's house. I guess I must have gone to see someone who burned bay-
wood some time. l don't remember the smell of it at home. It is connected with
a memory of a be-overalled boy about live years old-a sort of a dreamer, but
with a good deal of sense. l wonder if that was Daniel, and if I used to play
The conversation changed, and Marion, who had gradually absorbed some of
the reminiscent feeling of it, asked Mrs. Bristol to play "At an Old Trysting
Place." Mrs. llristol went to the piano and began to play, smoothly and softly.
"Please make it a little more jerky and unpolished if you can, Mrs. Bristol,"
said Marion. "l want to hear it as-well, as it used to be."
Mrs. lrlristol replied with the odd request. XYhen she had finished Marion said:
"I always want to go and sit under the piano when I hear that-I like it, and
yet it frightens me. It makes me feel restless, too-as if I had to leave a cosy
room and go out into the stormy night. I always wonder why, because neither
of my parents play the piano, and l know I never heard the piece at home."
"Here. You children are getting too reminiscent," said Mr. llristol. "l.et's
make a little noise."
A party thus stirred up seldom resumes its pensive demeanor. Not long
afterward shouting and rumbling of wheels was heard on the street.
"Oh, there are the boys from the rallyf' Marion said. "Let's go out and see
She and St. Clair went out to the street. The night was cold and windy and
the sky was illumined by the reflection of the rally fire. The shouts grew more
distinct until around the corner of the road came an old wagon filled with college
boys dressed in variegated pajamas and drawn by a group of unfortunate Fresh-
men. A wave of desolation swept over Marion and St. Clair as they stood there
in the wind. Marion grasped his arm and-
"Oh, Dannyf' she whispered, 'Tm a-scared V'
"Hush up. Sara, you haven't got nothin' to be scared of. jest think o' these
people-they haven't got any houses. They're all burnt out. XYe got a house,
"XVell, maybe we better go look," said Dan.
llut as they turned to enter the house they saw it there still somber and tranquil.
They reached the door of the living room just in time to see Mr. llristol dis-
appearing at the far end of the room.
"Uh, lfnele Charlie," St. Clair sang out, "l'd like to have you meet Sara and

A FIR TREES CALI.
Oh virgin tree, so straight and tall
Standing clear 'gainst amber skies
Aloof and chaste, we hear your call-
ln city streets we toil for bread-
A call of leafage, brown and sweet,
A call of the blue of a robin's eggg
And We sometimes pause in the bustlin street,

Thinking of water, clear and cold
Around our ankles singing soft,
Of shining carpets of brown-leaf mold,
And stirring tales by west winds told.

But we pass it by, for we think we inust.
RUTH F1zRGUsoN, '23
A CHRISTMAS MORNING
Their faces were aglow with the refreshment of cold water, and their wet
hair stood on end as if it had been frightened by vehement combing. Their clothes
had an air of hurried Christmas happiness. Four and six, these two boys were,
and already that morning they had conquered imagined worlds. Away they ran,
out among the other boys, vying vociferously with them, each contending for the
excellence of his own possessions.
The little, ruddy-cheeked, kindly English woman from down the street hurried
cheerfully up the hill, taking the annual plum pudding to her friends. And as
she passed the group of boys one of them shouted to her in his American way,
"Look at the baseball l got! Isn't it swell?"
AT THE SHOP
Even the air she breathed had changed. The world of-activity that had en-
compassed her but a moment before vanished. Shouts of "How did you come
out, Alice ?" and "XVasn't that ex terrific ?" close beside her became an unintelligible
din and then faded into obscurity. On one side an expectant crowd choked the
doorway of the little postofficeg everyone glanced with nervously impatient toler-
ance at her excited neighbors. On the other side a thin line of girls trailed out
of the door. Some of their heads were bent down in attentive absorption, others
in dejected disappointment.
And there she stood reading a letter. blocking the traffic, oblivious of everyoneg
her face bespeaking a relief unutterably tragic. Motionless she stood, without
tranquility, every nerve paralyzed by the shock of the blessed and yet painful
realization-she could not love him.

THE LOVE THAT PASSETI-I UNDERSTANDING
1112 wind came shrieking like a demented thing down the canyon. piling
masses of snow into fantastic shapes and hurling itself furiously at the tall
pines which, cracking and bending, dropped their heavy burdens of snow in order
to combat the fierce blasts more freely. The clouds hung heavy and leaden, and
the rocky walls of the canyon stood cold and impenetrable in their icy covering.
The tiny pools which had formed in the crevices of the rocks in the bed of the
river were covered with ice. but the main stream wound a tortured path through
the boulders so black and cold it made one shudder to look at it. Absolute silence,
the mysterious, awful silence of the mountain winter, where desolation reigns
supreme and the footsteps of Death, Famine and Disease tread noiselessly over
the marble expanse, surrounded and brooded over the world.
The one note of warmth and human companionship lay in the heart of the
canyon where the mining town of Wihiskey Diggings lay enshrouded in the snow.
ln the old days it was wont to bid a riotous welcome to the few travelers who
dared venture into the treacherous mountains where the scum and rot of the
earth sought refuge from the code of civilization and relief from the terrors of
conscience. llefore the coming of Geoffrey XYarren the very atmosphere had
been foul with the black poisons of all that is worst in man-murder, hatred, and
viciousness unspeakable, covered by the garish lights of the dance hall and the
drunken ribaldry and the whirl of the roulette wheels in the saloons predominated.
livery law, judicial and moral, was shamelessly violated, and as long as the mine
owners waxed rich on the yellow wealth of the earth they cared little for the
welfare of their men.
Upon the death of old Angus XVarren, the l'resident of the Company, his
son. Geoffrey, succeeded to his place as directing head.
Forceful, vital, cleansed by the breath of the fierce winds in open places, and
strong with the strength of the one who has met and conquered circumstances,
Geoffrey XN'arren arrived to make a personal inspection of his new property.
XVithin six months the last gambling hell had closed its doors forever and the
lurid lights of the dance hall had been effectually dimmed. .X new era of peace,
decency. and tranquillity descended upon this erstwhile turbulent region, the old
and vicious crowd drifted away and a newer and better element came in their
stead. Families came to settle and happy voices of children echoed down the
The first winter passed without any untoward incident, and the following
summer glided rapidly by. The mine was increasing its output and serene happi-
ness reigned in the little camp. lfall came early and with it signs of a severe
The camp awoke one morning to gaze upon a voieeless white world, and from
that day forward the sun hid behind an impregnable bank of clouds and winter
brooded over the land.
Then came diphtheriag how or from whence no one could guess. An Italian
laborer became ill, and with the fear and superstition of the ignorant refused
to call the mine doctor until all hope of aid was past and two-thirds of the laboring
population had been in contact with him. The epidemic spread rapidly. although
Dr. Ainsley and Geoffrey waged a stubborn, ceaseless war against it. lt was
impossible to procure anti-toxin for the weight of snow had broken the telephone
and telegraph wires and the unending storms had made it impossible for any one
to get out of the canyon to Downiville on the other side of the ridge.
The one educated white woman in camp, Dr. john Ainsley's younger sister,
Sibyl, did the work of a dozen, fighting side by side day and night with her brother
and Geoffrey against this sinister foe, but to no avail, for from one cabin to
another Death stalked forth and spared neither man, woman, nor child.
To the stricken camp Sibyl Ainsley, because of previous hospital training, was
the ministering angel. Since her arrival in the isolated little town two months
before to spend the winter with her brother she had occupied the innermost
shrine in the heart of Geoffrey XYarren, a place which had been kept through-
out his forty years for her alone. From the very first the habitual wall of reserve
with which he surrounded himself in the presence of women had broken down
under her spell, and' the long-denied passion of love overwhelmed him.
.-Xs she was the one woman in his life, so was he the one man in hers, and she
poured unreservedly upon him the great gift of her love. NVith these two there
was no need of words, so deep was the understanding existing between them.
and the glorious sun of their mutual love shone blindly forth even down in that
ln the living room of Geoffrey's cabin with its rough walls and clumsy furni-
ture the winter twilight was rapidly fading and the fitful gleams of light from
the huge open fireplace woke the dancing shadows in the far corners of the room
and subdued the harsh angles of the place.
.X drafting table stood under the two front windows. now banked high with
snow, littered with mats. drawing utensils, and blueprints. A scarred roller-top
desk, whose almost prim orderliness pained one after the confusion of the drafting
table, dominated the whole end of the room with a glaring green-shaded drop light
hanging over it.
A bookcase crammed full of a miscellaneous assortment of books utilized the
space between the desk and one end of the fireplace.
A green log sizzled on the hearth, and on the high, dusty mantle stood a jelly
glass, from which the water had long since evaporated, leaving a dirty brown
stain on the glass, holding a few withered sprays of red mountain berriesg a
battered ash tray overflowing with cigar stubs and ashes, and a picture of a
wicked looking Airedale terrier in a brown frame. Two Remington pictures were
pasted over the mantle, and the remainder of the furniture consisted of a green
plush Morris chair in front of the fire, a rickety orange-drab couch at the other
end of the room, and two heavy office chairs.
Geoffrey sat in the great chair in front of the fire, his eyes closed and the
part of his face that showed between the week's growth of beard lined with care
and gray with fatigue. His heavy boots were soaked through and were beginning
to steam from the heat of the fire, filling the room with the heavy odor of damp
leather. He still wore his heavy outdoor clothes and his hair was as towsled as a
small boy's. At his feet lay Slivers, the rough-coated Airedale of the picture on
the mantle, watching his master intently.
The fire sputtered fitfully and Slivers raised his head suddenly as steps
sounded outside on the narrow board walk. The handle of the door turned and
Sybil Ainsley stepped quietly into the room, closing the door after her. Despite
the tired droop of her mouth and the weary circles around her dark eyes her
wonderful golden beauty lighted up the room for the man before the fire as no
other celestial or earthly light could have done.
She tossed the heavy blue serge cape from her shoulders with one capable
white hand, and with the other caressed Slivers who had risen and walked over
to greet her. Geoffrey rose, and after putting another log on the fire drew up a
chair for her. She remained standing, however, close beside him and said quietly:
"VVhat is it, Geoffrey ?U
The man looked down on her with fathomless love in his eyes.
"Sybil,,' he said, "this cannot go on. Little Terrence O'Rourke died this morn-
ing and his mother is delirious and desperately ill, Italian Jake's twins are on the
point of death and their father implored me to do something. XVe must have
anti-toxin! I talked with Digger jim, our old Indian guide, and he says it will
not snow again for twenty-four hours, and by that time I can get up the canyon
wall and over the ridge to Downiville and help. There is not another man in the
place able to take the risk, and l can't stand by and see these helpless little mites
choke to death. I know I can make it.'y
The girlls face had turned white, one hand was pressed hard against her
throat but her eyes never faltered from his face.
Ile put both hands on her shoulders and his voice took on a deeper note as he
"Beloved, I want you to tell me to go because I love you, love you as man
never before loved a woman, I think, and I know you love me. I can stay here
with you, God knows it is terrible to leave you in this pesthouse, but our love
cannot be built on the lives of others. Shall I go? It is for you to say."
The girl's face was ashen, but her voice was low and steady as she answered:
"Yes, go. I cannot ask you to stay. A love like ours is too precious and beau-
tiful a thing and God will not suffer it to end like that.
"Hut, oh my dear," and here her voice broke and she clung to him frantically,
"come back to me, come back to me safely."
Too greatly moved to speak. Geoffrey could only fold her in his arms.

Two hours later Geoffrey and Digger jim were ready to commence the ascent
of the canyon trail. The doctor and Sybil alone watched them make ready to start.
"XVhen we reach Downivillef, said Geoffrey, "we will send aid as quickly as
possible and return ourselves when we have rested. VVe should reach Downiville
sometime in the morning. Every moment counts while it is not snowing and
night or day the trails are the same to Digger Jim. Keep up the fight. By
tomorrow night relief will be here."
Sybil and her brother watched them slowly ascend the steep trail until the
lirst line of timber hid them from view.
Sybil raised her white face to the sky.
"Keep him safe, dear God, keep him safe.',
All that night they worked over the sufferers, fighting Death hand in hand.
and all night long Sybil's heart walked beside her lover over the dangerous,
exhausting trails to Downiville.
In the early hours of the morning the doctor took Sybil home and administered
a sleeping potion. The endless strain and fatigue of nursing and anxiety over
Geoffrey were proving too much to be borne, and Sybil was fast approaching the

OUR PRESI DENF1
1111: biggest organization on the Mills College campus is the Associated
Students. Everyone registered as a student at Mills is a member of this
group, and is entitled to its privileges and responsible for living up to its pro-
visions. Mills College is thoroughly under the student government system, and
so this necessitates that the Associated Students be a very strong organization in
order that campus affairs be well administered. Every other group on the campus
is in a way responsible to this body, and every student is supposedly represented
in its executive board.
The ofhcers of the student body for this year are:
President, Lucile Ernst.
Vice-President, Hazel Jaeger.
Treasurer, Luella Loy.
Secretary, Judith Lippitt.
Chairman of Social Committee, Adelaide Hovey.
The executive board is composed of these members, the presidents of the
four halls, president of the Drama Association, president of the Athletic Asso-
ciation, and a member at large, who is for this semester Elizabeth Lytle, and for
the second, Beatrice XValt0n.
Hall organizations are independent in most respects, but they are really under
the student body, and of course subject to its regulations. This same holds true
of class and departmental groups.
This organization of all others is one of the most tangible means for developing
executive ability in the individual student. It is here that all appeals from students
are made if they want some feature of self-government changed. The meetings
must be well conducted, and through this experience of legislation on a small
scale the lessons are learned that will be of tremendous value in the outside world.
Then again through self-government a splendid feeling of integrity and individual
responsibility is developed. The students learn to form a very rigid code of
honor, and to rely on themselves for their judgments, and thus to become dis-
tinctly more mature. After all, if college is a preparation for life the student
body is one of the best means for such preparation. lt builds character, initiative.
sense of responsibility and an unseltish interest in what is going on around you.
Much or any more than that is not necessary to make one ready to live the right
kind of life as a citizen in any community whatsoever.

HIS year has been a very happy one for Miss Y. The reason? Simply
because shes been playing her favorite game, called "service," with a bigger
and better Mills than ever before.
Her tirst chance to play this year was on the shores of l.ake Aliso when she
acted as hostess at a glorious "welcoming" picnic. Talks by such friends as
l'resident Reinhardt, Professor lhirges Johnson of Yassar, Rosalind Cassidy and
Marion l'ossons, as well as "eats" and games in Alumnae llall made the evening
a regular starter for a big Mills year.
And so with the joy of that first evening to start on, Miss Y began the
year with a smile, determined to be a bigger and better friend to the campus than
she had ever been before.
One night, soon after registration, Mills llall was filled from top to bottom.
The Seniors were helping Miss Y entertain the rest of the college at a myriad
of informal nine o'clock teas.
Then after a few weeks had passed and all her old friends had done their best
to let the Freshmen know what kind of a "pal" Y. XY. could be, something known
as a membership drive began and every girl was invited to give her pledge of
friendship to Y. VV. At the convocation candle service when Dean lige explained
the meaning of such a pledge, the bonds of friendship were sealed tight and
Miss Y was convinced that she had the support of a goodly portion of the campus
for the rest of the year.
No one will forget the good times we have had around the Alumnae Hall tire
on VVednesday nights. Once "Ecky" Dayman came and because of her own
glorious experience could make us thrill over the joy of work. Another time
Dr. XVhite of San Rafael set everyone to thinking with his "Khaki" testament
talk, while Asilomar famed Doctor French of Los Angeles, Miss llentley, Miss
Guthrie and our own President Reinhardt and Rosalind Cassidy have all been
among the leaders of hours long to be remembered.
Miss Y is a great believer in off-campus relationships whether they be with
our next-door neighbors or with those across the Pacific. The steadily increasing
friendship with the LT. C. Y. XY. C. A. stands out as delightful next-door-neighbor
relationship. On the night when Lillie Margaret Sherman spoke the entire
Berkeley Cabinet came out for dinner and met a hundred or more Mills girls at
a social half hour held in Alumnae Hall after the regular meeting. Later in the
year thirty or forty girls from Mills were entertained by an Asilomar afternoon
and banquet in the new University of California Y. XY. C. A. building.
Yarious types of Social Service work done in connection with the Oakland
Y. VV. C. A. A most successful series of discussion groups, and a number of
successful world fellowship meetings have done much to extend our sympathies
and thoughts beyond the campus.
Then when the nation-wide Student Yolunteer Convention, to be held at
lies Moines, lowa, was announced, the entire campus proved its interest in
world Christianity by generously helping to send Mills representatives there and
further by receiving with enthusiasm the report which the delegates brought back
from this great gathering of seven thousand Christian students.

HE Drama Association has had a particularly active and successful year. In
the first place its definite democratic principles exactly lit the progressive
ideals of Mills College. The former organization, the Drama Club of last year
and years before, was very unsatisfactory inasmuch as the membership was
limited by the vote of the active members, its activities were little known, and its
voice had practically no power. The plays produced on the campus were not
under the club, but under the authority of each separate class, so that waste of
materials, makeup, property, and the like resulted, ill feeling was more apt to
arise between classes when one committee in a class misplaced something belong-
ing to another class or organization. Now it is quite different. Anyone attending
Mills College may be an active member of the Drama Association. The only
requirement is the payment of yearly dues. But on paying the dues the student
is given a card admitting her to all college and class productions that are under
the supervision of the Drama Association. The members have the right of elect-
ing their ofhcers, and the college play and all the class plays have now come into
the jurisdiction of the Drama Association. It is not a body that is dominated by
a few, but all those interested have an equal opportunity. The leadership of such
an organization naturally is important, and this year Ada Beveridge as president
proved her executive ability. Because of the unrestrained membership this
organization ranks higher than a departmental club. Its voice is respected because
its members are consulted in the case of any decision that has to do with the
progress of dramatics on the college campus. The committees for properties.
makeup, costumes and stage management have eliminated the confusion of not
knowing what has been done with the college property after it has been used.
Besides the practical work that is done in the production of plays, there is the
regular fortnightly Thursday evening student study hour. At these meetings
plays are read by members of the association. The first of these to be given was
"Deurdu" by John Millington Synge, read by Lois Hunter. Marion Hedrick
read "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals" by john Barrie. Margaret Smith read
for the association the delightful play by Bernard Shaw, "Androcles and the
Lion." The last of the March meetings Margaret Long read "Monsieur Beau-
caire" by Booth Tarkington. One can easily see that the readings are exceptional
selections, and ,varied in their appeal.

growing spirit of Mills. .lt is a four-page paper which comes out every week,
and although it has only been in existence three years it is now an integral part of
our college life. Until this year the staff has been quite small, and has had a
tendency to be rather unrepresentative of the true campus spirit. Now, however,
the stan' itself has been enlarged, and a goodly number of reporters has been
A good deal of original work has been done with this publication this year,
and the staff has branched out into several new fields. The greatest addition that
this staff has made is the increase in the independence and virility of editorial
opinion. The news in the llfvclely is also becoming distinctly less hackneyed and
commonplace, and special features in each issue are looked for,
President Reinhardt has always had great hopes for the W'cekly, and her plan
is that when the college is large enough to support it a daily will be published.
For the present it rests with the students to make the l'Vvck!y a still more vital
organ of public opinion and a more representative record of campus news. This
can never be accomplished except with the constructive co-operation of all the
students. VVe must all take an interest in this publication, which is truly our own,
and make it a fair picture and reflection of our life and opinions.

HAT is the Student Aid Society, and what good is it going to do me to pay
my dollar for becoming an annual member?" the Freshman will probably
ask when she is approached for one of her precious dollars. The name does not
sound particularly interesting to her, but after the patient collector repeats her
explanation of the work of the society, the dollar usually comes forth willingly.
Probably this particular student will go merrily on through her college year and
not hear again of this organization, until the next fall the collector pops her head
into the room and says, "You want to pay your Student Aid dues now, don't you F"
However, although little is heard of the society among the students at large,
yet a great deal of good is really accomplished in a quiet way by this important
In 1913 the Student Aid Society was organized with the following purposes
in view: the establishment of a Graduate Scholarship Loan Fund, the raising of
an Undergraduate Loan Fund, and the management of a llureau of Occupations.
During this last year the third of these functions had been taken over by the
The Graduate Scholarship Fund makes it possible for a student of ability to
go on with graduate work when her means are insufficient. ln every case the
students who have received such aid and taken graduate work in other colleges,
have brought added recognition and a higher appreciation of our own college.
As the name suggests, the Undergraduate Loan Fund gives aid to the students
needing financial assistance. Annual membership dues and contributions form
this fund. .
The splendid work done by the society is largely due to the president, Dr.
Traver. The other officers for this year are:
Margaret Thompson, vice-president.
Dr. Anna S. Cox, secretary-treasurer,
Dean Hettie B. Ege, faculty member.
Emily Heitman, student member.
Margaret B. Long, student member.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND PRIZICS
Generous friends who recognize the importance of education have given to
Mills College a number of scholarships to be awarded to deserving students who
have insufficient means with which to secure a college education. Since the
number of applicants for these is always far in excess of the number available,
utmost care has to be exercised in their award. To hold a scholarship at Mills
College is, therefore, to be recognized as one of the best students in any class.
In March President Reinhardt announced at assembly the gift of two new
scholarships, one by the Nichols family, and the other by the Mary Atkins
The graduating class last year, 1319, decided to make their gift to the college
a scholarship. Three hundred and Hfty dollars, as a nucleus for this aim, was left
with the provision that until the fund should be large enough to use as a schol-
arship, the Student Aid Society should have the privilege of using the money

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
The Home Iiconomics Club opened the year with an initiation dinner for the
nine Sophomore members. Then came a mammoth food sale 011 the Oval which
added to the Home Economics building fund.
The dinner given by Mr. lVIcMinn to sixty-live members of the California
Botanical Society was prepared by the Home Economics majors.
The year in the Home Economics calendar would not be complete without a
picnic for the Freshmen. This takes place either in the cottages or at the lake,
the latter being the scene this year. The guests generally have the surprise of being
asked to do the cleaning up, but as this is accompanied by games the time passes
rapidly and soon the tire is out and the final songs are heard.
The year closed with a cake sale for the Ilome Economics endowment fund
and as always the cakes disappeared rapidly.

HISTORY CLU I 1
History and Social Science Majors opened the year September twenty-ninth
with a dinner followed by a discussion for the plans of the year.
The tea on October sixth for majors in the lfflistory and Social and Political
Science Departments was the first real opportunity for the members of these
closely allied departments to come together. The next meeting was a purely
business one at which a new constitution was accepted and officers were elected
for the year. Doris Dozier was chosen president, Ethel Clulf vice-president, and
Marjorie Flint secretary-treasurer. A series of unusually interesting lectures was
given by men and women who related pC1'S0llZ1l experiences regarding matters of
The officers of the Studio Club, elected at the first meeting in September, are:
President, Jessie May Irvineg vice-president, Hazel Downerg secretary and treas-
urer, Marjorie Flint. The Studio Club includes as members all art majors and
girls enrolled in practical art courses.
The Studio Club has taken charge of two splendid art exhibits on the campus.
The first was an exhibit of prints from the Chicago Institute of Art. Duplicates
of these prints were sold on the campus, and the money was used to buy still life
objects for the Art Department.
The second exhibit is the annual exhibit held on the day of the May Fete, in
Alumnae Hall. The display usually includes work from the classes in pottery,
metal-work, basketry, mechanical drawing, painting and design.
The Studio Art Library is a feature of interest and importance in connection
with the Art Department. It is said to be quite complete in the variety and
excellence of the books it includes.
MILLS MUSIC CLUIS
At the beginning of the school year, a large and enthusiastic group of girls
met in Alumnae Hall to elect the officers of the Music Club, and to outline plans
for the year's activities. The officers elected are: President, Elizabeth Cockcroft,
vice-president, llernice Tuttg secretary, Gladys Halstedg treasurer, Vilas Derrg
chairman of Social Committee, Helen lglroadwellg chairman of Publicity Com-
mittee, Ruth Carr.
The purpose of the Music Club is to further the interest in music on the
campus, and to make music a more vital part of Mills College life. The club has
tried to carry out this purpose by welcoming and managing all musical events of
the campus, by lending its services as ushers or hostesses at campus concerts. and
by making possible an occasional concert on the campus by an outside artist or
group of artists.
At the Music Studio Teas, which took tl1e place of the regular mid-year recital,
members of the Music Club acted as hostesses, and served the tea and wafers in
a very gracious manner.
The monthly Organ Recitals rendered by Mr. XVilliam XV. Carruth, in Lisser
Hall, have been a very special attraction to outsiders, as well as to the campus
family. Girls have been chosen from the Music Club to usher at each recital,
and to direct guests about the campus.
On the evening of March the twelfth, the Music Club brought an interesting
and charming pianiste to the campus in the person of Miss Lillian Ammalee. The
program proved delightfully interesting. Miss Ammalee is a pianiste of great
talent, and her playing was evidence of long and diligent study. She was more
than pleased with the undivided attention which she received from the Mills
Helen Uroadwell and her Social Committee arranged a delightful little recep-
tion after the concert, when the girls met Miss Ammalee, and exchanged stories
of campus experiences for perhaps more thrilling stories of her experiences as a
piano student in Europe.
The Occidental Glee Club appeared in concert at Lisser Hall on the evening
of March the thirty-first, under the auspices of the Mills Music Club. The mem-
bers of the Glee Club gave a splendid program, which was fully appreciated
by the audience. The Glee Club members 'enjoyed an hour of dancing with the
Music Club in Alumnae Hall after the concert.
XN'inifred Perry proved a very efficient business manager in making the
arrangements for these two concerts. She was aided by Helen Rich and Ruth
Carr. who managed the tickets and publicity.
The Music Club has been given a space in the IVcc1ely for a calendar of
musical events around the bay. Ruth Carr, as Publicity Chairman, has charge
of this phase of the Music Club activity.
The Music Club has tried to do its small share in the Mills Endowment Fund.
Mrs. L. V. Sweesy. faculty counselor, has been a constant source of help to
the Executive lloard of the club.
The Chemistry Club is the newest club on the campus, having been organized
this year. Since only Chemistry majors or those who are taking a number of
advanced courses in the department are allowed to be members, the club is not
large, but size has very little to do with energy and enthusiasm of a club. All
members are certainly endowed with these attributes and the club promises to
be an active organization.
The Chemistry Club was organized for the purpose of stimulating an interest
in the study of Chemistry. The programs planned for the meetings consist of
reports on industrial improvements in chemistry, original papers on new theories,
lives of eminent chemists, or anything of interest in this field of study. These
reports are given by different members of the club at the bi-monthly meetings.
The members also plan to have some outside speaker from time to time at their
meetings for this always adds to the interest of every one.
Dr. Morgan of the University of California has been the guest of the club
and spoke about organizing a chapter of the Iota Sigma Pi, which is the national
chemistry fraternity for colleges.
The organization is very simple, the officers being the president, vice-president,
secretary, and treasurer-social head. Those elected for this year were: Marian
Haish. president, Margaret I,ong, vice-president, Janet Pickens, treasurer.
It is the aim and hope of the club to show themselves so strong an organization
this year that we can soon be granted a charter from the Iota Sigma Pi, which
would be a great honor, for Mills would be the lirst woman's college to have a
THE PEM CLUB
In 1918 the upper class majors of Physical Education formed a club to
maintain co-operation within the department and to organize some permanent
form of activity for graduates to return to. It aims to link College and Depart-
ment, scholarship and physical proficiency.
Vtfith this last aim in view Miss Elizabeth R. Stoner, head of the Department
of Physical Education, at the end of each academic year presents a pin to the
Senior who has ranked highest throughout her four years, in both scholarship
and other forms of activities. This pin is the Egyptian symbol for life and
means a great honor to the major who possesses one. Miss Rosalind Cassidy,
founder of the organization, Miss Hilda Clute, Miss Gertrude Coffeen, and Mgs
Stoner each have the pin and each Senior is entitued to a similar one.
The present officers of this organization are: Sarah McCrady, president,
Almuth Arens, vice-president, Judith Campbell, secretary-treasurerg Irene lVil-
liamson, Great God Pem.
The Great God Pem is a mysterious person and any Pem will tell you of the
way in which he rules on the night of initiation.
The work of this club is closely correlated with the work of the Physical
Education Department, it promotes all activities typical of Mills, and it brings
together a group of girls interested in the same type of work with many of the
"Las Chispasfl or 'fThe Sparklersfy is the name under which our Spanish
Club has flourished for two years on the campus. This club was founded by
Miss I"Iuet two years ago when she came to take charge of the Spanish Depart-
ment, and she has since played a prominent part in college activities.
The club meets twice eve1'y month in Alumnae Hall, the program consisting
of an address upon some subject of interest to the department by an outside
speaker, and music and literary numbers by the members themselves.
Last year a play, "Los Dos Sordosn tThe Two Deaf Mutesij, was produced
by the students in the department, which was very successful, and the club also
assisted in entertaining some distinguished South American educators, Madame
de la llarca and her husband, during their visit to Mills College.
This year the Spanish Club has grown much larger and the membership of
the club "l.as Chispas" has consequently increased. Although no dramatic pro-
duction was attempted this year a stringed orchestra has been organized which
entertains. adding a further attraction to the fortnightly program. "Las Chispasn
has been steadily growing both in prominence and popularity, both as an edu-
cational and a social function which will in all probability increase still more
during the next year.
TI Ili FRENCH CLUB
The coming of llllle. A. Cecile Reau to Mills to take charge of the French
Department marked the verge of a more vigorous interest in all things pertaining
During the fall semester of 1918 a French Club was organized composed of
the students who were interested in French, which has assumed an important
part in the college life of the past two years.
The French Club was the means by which many distinguished French soldiers
and statesmen were brought to the campus to tell us of the great war from the
point of view of an ally and a European nation. Among the speakers it was
our good fortune to hear was Father Cabanel, the famous chaplain of the Blue
Devils. whose address was greatly enjoyed by all the student body.
Four plays have been produced under the direction of the club, those last
year being "Soeurs Latinesn and "La Barberinef' and this year "I'ourquoi
Cheichez si l.oin" and "Le Filebustierf' which proved immensely popular with
the faculty and students alike.
As an added incentive to the study of French as well as an important factor
in our social life the club has made itself felt in many ways and has been more
than worth while.
AS YOU LIKE IT
HIE college play for this year was You I.ike It' by Shakespeare. This
is the first time, for many years at least, that anything Shakespearean has
been attempted at Mills, and this time was an unqualified success. In the first
place the setting was ideal. The play was produced on the outdoor stage, which
was banked entirely with greens. This setting lent itself particularly well to the
forest scenes, but even that action which supposedly took place indoors was not
in the least weakened by the woodland setting.
Some hitherto unknown talent was discovered when Esther XVaite played the
part of Rosalind. Her acting was at times somewhat detached, and at times some-
what unconvincing, but on the whole her work was very commendable. Par-
ticularly well did she do the scenes in which she was attired in IIIHIIQS clothing and
was the roguish youth.
Ada Beveridge, as Orlando, did a characteristically satisfactory piece of work.
It is a distinctly difficult thing for a girl to take the part of a young man, and an
ardent lover at that, and put any kind of conviction into it at all. All this and
more was accomplished, and in the more serious or semi-pathetic moments real
dramatic fervor was reached, and the audience was absolutely in sympathy with
every move made by the attractive and irresistible young lover.
As Celia, Helen Colgan was an excellent actress. The sweetness, devotion and
femininity of that part were all there to a splendid degree, and throughout there
was a remarkable absence of self-consciousness. Celia is rather a difficult person
to make distinctive, but Helen Colgan succeeded admirably in doing that very
One of the finest pieces of work in the whole production was Esther Butters'
rendition of Audrey. That was not acting, that was real life, and grotesque life
itself. Her very slightest gesture was true to the bumpkin nature that she tem-
porarily had assumed, and nothing for a moment distracted her from that.
Touchstone was a splendid foil. Irene XVilliamson made this little jester live for
all of the spectators, and she had a touch of whimsicality that was charmingly
True commendation is due Marie Louise Chaussier, one of our French students.
who was for us the "melancholy jacques." The French accent was a charming
addition to the delightful acting of a distinctly subtle and polished part.
l7l'Il'.XRTL'RlC from the time-honored custom of presenting the Kermess in the
college gymnasium was made this year when produced in the Oakland findi-
torium Opera llouse. Two performances on the afternoon and evening of March
the sixth called forth creditable and appreciative audiences. and resulted in the
addition of one thousand dollars to the Mills lindowinent lfund.
A clever prologue answered the frequent questions as to the origin of the
"ln Holland quaint, and llelgium, too.
A thousand years ago,
The people held a festival,
Their gratitude to show.
For they had vowed that if the l.ord
XVould take the plague away.
They'd make a pilgrimage each year
And many prayers say."
The Kermess was distinguished this year by the greater number of large
group scenes and the comparative infrequency of clltrc uric sketches. The
classic lmeauty of the Greek episode and the tragic sweetness of the japanese will
live longest in the memory. while the most pleasing of the smaller groups even per-
haps the dexterous Roumanian dancers and the piquant "lt llappened in Spring."
The arrangement of the program provided effective contrast in the languorous
Lotus Dance and the virile Russian, in the arid Arabian scene and the colorful
lrish. while the folk note was struck in the English dances and the rollicking
pickaninny songs and clogs.
Voting for the most popular dance, a tradition since Kerinesses began, resulted
in the choice of the Greek episode in the afternoon and "lt llappened in Spring"
in the evening.
Great credit for the line spirit of the Kermess is due Bliss lilizabeth Rheem
Stoner, its director. Miss Rosalind Cassidy and llliss lirma XVarner of the
department of Physical liducation assisted her. and a number of student com-
mittees aided in the management of details. XYe were fortunate in having an
orchestra directed lmy Paul Steindorff.
IIE May Fete has become an annual event at Mills College. lt is always joy-
ously anticipated, and it is one of the major activities of the year. There is
always a contest open to all students for a theme for this occasion. In 1918 the
theme was written by Marion Possons, a Senior of that year, and the story was
based on that of Ariadne. The May Fete takes place at Lake Aliso, the beautiful
lake on the campus, and it is always planned so that the water and the hills which
form its border are effectively used for scenic results. This year the stage will
be greatly improved. It is to be twelve feet deeper and twelve feet wider than it
was before. As a result more people can be gotten on the stage at once, and
crowded scenes will look far less cumbersome. Distance is a great factor to be
considered in the planning of a May Fete on this particular spot, because the
audience is seated across the lake from the stage, and so perspective, grouping,
and dance figures all require exceedingly careful planning.
The May Fete is under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Rheem Stoner and
the Physical Education Department. The major part of the performance is taken
up in dancing, and wonderful spectacular effects are achieved by judicious use
of the lake and of the hillside back of the stage.
The May Fete of this year is a combination theme of two that were handed in.
One was contributed by Nancy Ellen XVhite. '21, and the other by Marion Hedrick,
120, and Helen Colgan, '20, in collaboration. The subject matter is Arthurian,
and it has been hinted that Miss Stoner is going to provide a procession of armor-
clad horsemen for horsewomen, to be correctj to appear over the brow of the
hill at the crucial moment. Everything promises well for the performance at the
date of this writing. It is hoped that a special effort will be made to get a large
audience for this occasion at this particular time, because in addition to the special
merits of this theme the proceeds of the day are to go to the Mills College Endow-
ment Fund. VVhispers have been heard that Miss Stoner is arranging to include
one hundred and fifty girls, if not more, in the cast.
May Day has always been an occasion for real rejoicing at Mills, and the May
Fete is the most significant way of celebrating it. lt is distinctly up to the students
to make this annual event one that will live in everybody's memory.

When it was announced that the Senior play was to be f'Prunella,', the campus
knew that it was the culmination of a dream the Seniors had had for a long
time, and because the play was loved by each girl it was bound to be a success.
The part of Pierrot seemed almost made for Marie Louise Chaussier. and she
for it. The similarity of nationality may have been one reason for the success
with which the character was played, but aside from that there was her deep
sympathy for the gaiety, love and power of the character which helped to make
it so convincing.
The wistful Prunella and her winsomeness as Pierette were admirably accom-
plish by Helen Colgan. ln the garden with her aunts, who were the essence of
propriety, she was quite as lovable as in the stranger part of fancy and dream-
land as Pierrette. Her voice, gracefulness and emotional quality showed as excel-
lent a piece of work as has ever been done on the campus.

"The Yellow jacket" recommended itself to the juniors to produce because of
the beauty of its spectacular, rich setting and because of the gorgeous possibilities
for costuming. The poetic quality of the theme and the opportunity for imagina-
tive art gave promise for a good production.
It is not to be given in strict accordance with the Chinese customs, for that
would put the play too far out of the comprehension of our western understanding
of plays, but there will be as far as possible that modification of occidental and
oriental stage customs which will give the audience the spirit of Chinese drama
and yet make it plausible on an American stage. Dr. Kiang of the University of
California has very kindly offered to give suggestions about the best way to
produce the play in keeping with Chinese traditions, and this opportunity gives
every promise of a successful play.
llesides putting forth something novel, the juniors will have gained something
in the research of the customs of another country, and have achieved more by
mastering a difficult and unfamiliar art than by playing the customary roles of an

The Sophomores will give three one-act plays this year as their contribution to
the constantly improving dramatic work on the campus. "The Minuetu is a beau-
tifully poetical play of the French Revolution, which gives those taking part an
opportunity to express on the one hand the extreme gentility and polished cour-
tesy of the period, and on the other hand the gruff coarseness of the lower classes.
Beneath all the surface affectations, however, there is true nobility of character
which turns the play into a poem instead of leaving it a tragedy. The introduction
of a few steps from the minuet will carry out the romantic and poetical force of

Although the casts are well chosen for all the plays. "lIe1ena's Husband" has
a particularly happy choice of girls to take the parts. It is an entirely farcical
play, with the ancient theme of Paris and Helen in Troy handled in a very
original way with strictly modern satire.
The setting is to be one of those "archeological mysteries. a Greek interior."
which leaves all in suspense as to the effect this implies. Considering the setting,
Wit and situation of the play, "Helena's Husband" will probably be the most
immediately popular of the three.

Us'r as every fairy story we loved so in our childhood always started t'Once
upon a time," so does nearly every Mills girl's conversation, when she revisits
the campus, begin i'XYhen I was a girl at Mills." And what a host of recollections
follows that phrase! XYith time, old customs have been abandoned and new ones
have taken their places, but dear to the heart of every Mills girl are the traditions
of her own day.
The girls of yesterday will always remember Admission Day and Founders
Day as gala occasions in the life of Mills. On September ninth a holiday was
always decreed, sometimes there was an excursion to the hills. A unique custom
was the dinner party which ended the day's festivities. Here the girls appeared
in costume. each class representing some one period in the history of the State.
Founders Day was a home-coming for all the alumnae. Early in the month of
May this day was celebrated with exercises in the morning, followed by luncheon.
ln the afternoon the guests were allowed to "remember" as they visited the places
they loved. On this day the Seniors were received into the Alumnae Association,
but now they are greeted as alumnae at the annual alumnae luncheon. The
account of fifteen years ago tells of the winding of the Maypole part of the
afternoon's festivities. Perhaps here was the beginning of our May Fete. Now
Admission Day no longer sees us hiking into the hills or having a historical
pageant in the evening, and Founders Day only appears as a date in our college
calendar. The inquiring Freslnnan asks, "XN'hat do we do on Founders Day?"
And we reply, "Go to classes."
No Mills girl need be told the principle on which this school was founded.
Once the half hours of devotion after dinner formed a part of the day's schedule,
and the girls of only a few years ago can tell of the Quiet Fifteen which they
kept every morning. During this period of quiet the girls were supposed to
remain in their rooms and read their Bibles.
There is a picture of great interest in the Mills Hall parlor of the students of
long ago hatted and gloved walking down the Avenue, two by two. to Sunday
morning church. The church has since been known as Tolman House, Mr. James's
home, and it is now the Music Studio. On these Sunday morning pilgrimages
the girls were well chaperoned, for between every few couples there was a
X'Vith the erection of Lisser Hall, and the installation of the pipe organ, vesper
services were held every Sunday afternoon. Our Sunday evening service is still
The work of the Tolman lland now forms a part of the Y. XV. C. A. work.
Every XVednesday evening the cabinet meets before dinner, and for an hour after
dinner there is an informal meeting in Alumnae Hall. One of the most impres-
sive ceremonies of the year is the Convocation service held early in the first
semester. All the Y. VV. C. A. members dress in white and march in procession
carrying lighted candles. Dean Ege's reading of "The Vision of Sir Launfalu is
very representative of the spirit of the organization.
During Mrs. Mills, presidency, her reception was one of the first affairs of the
year. Many a Freshman has been embarrassed by obeying the instruction of a
Sophomore and taking her own teaspoon to the reception, only to find that the
college supplied its own silver.
W'hen Dean Ege was acting president she gave dinner parties to the different
classes. Now only the Freshman Class is thus favored.
livery XYednesday afternoon on our campus teas are given in succession by
the four halls for the girls of the other dormitories.
Une of the most unique of our social activities are the feeds. In the '70s the
girls were not permitted the privilege of entertaining their friends in their own
rooms. There was no eating between meals except on Friday night when each
girl was given two soda crackers. And now we have the tea-room, boxes from
home, and the kitchenettes.
When we suggest recreation every girl of Mills or College Hall thinks of the
1913 room. llefore 1911 this room was used for recitation. That year the room
was renovated. the black boards came clown, the fireplace was erected. It was
Mrs. Mills' gift to the girls. Here they gathered every evening between dinner
and prayers. The class of 1913, then Sophomores, were the official owners of
the room. Since then it has been in possession of every odd-numbered class.
YVith the beginning of every new year all our college customs center largely
around the Freshmen.
Un the first evening the Y. XY. entertains at what is known as College Even-
ing. For several years this meeting was held in Alumnae llall, but this year we
gathered around a bonfire at the lake. Perhaps our College Evening is a survival
of College Nights of about 1911. One account given of the Seniors of that
year entertaining the other classes. The girls came with their sewing and later
in the evening toasted marshmallows and sang college songs. It evidently was
an old college custom to meet in this way for it speaks of the affair as a revival
of the custom of College Evenings.
llefore the honors of initiation are even hinted about the Freshmen are led
to believe that the Sophomores are the best of friends and counsellors. For
conclusive evidence the Sophomores as ever watchful mothers or young suitors
are escorts to the Freshmen lassies at the llaby Party. The first part of the
evening is spent in playing drop-the-hankerchief and other games, just as they
did ten or fifteen years ago. Later in the evening dancing is enjoyedg simple
wholesome refreshments are served and the children are taken home at an early
Soon after the llaby Farty, the juniors, the true friends of the newcomers.
show their sisterly interest in a junior-Freshman breakfast. If the weather
permits, off we go on a Sunday morning into the hills to prepare part of our
own breakfast over a campfireg if it threatens to rain we prefer hall 'to hill and
feast before the huge fireplaces in Alumnae Hall.
Next comes Dean Ege's dinner for the Freshmen, a most enjoyable get-
acquainted meeting, with the table progressing after each course. The Freshmen
look their best in their graduation dressesg and until this year the Seniors have
presided at the tables.
Then when the Freshmen are beginning to believe that every one loves them
and it really wasn't so bad to leave home after all, they are suddenly threatened
with blackhand notes. With fear and trembling they obey the awful commands.
In days gone by, after they had become acquainted with all the remote corners
of the campus. the poor Freshmen were taken to court. They were taken before
the judge presiding over Ubeyology. Mathology, Lambology, and Manology.
Now they must needs go through the lfall of Horrors. The Seniors give the
final thrust with a stunt showing all the mistakes of Freshmen life.
After initiation begins the feeling of animosity between the Freshmen and
Sophomores. The rivalry that succeeding classes have witnessed in the hang-
ing of numerals, hunting for the lamb, and springing of hats no doubt had its
origin away back in '76 in the hiding of the hour. The Senior Seminary class
of that year had an hour which summoned the members of class meetings. When
the class of 176 graduated they presented the hour to the 77 Seniors. This
continued down to 1892 with perhaps slight variations. The Senior middles
captured it from the Seniors and hid it. XX'hen they became Seniors, still having
it in their possession it was decided that the class below, the '94s, should search
for it. This continued through many classes, each trying to find the hour, but in
vain. The class of '99 broke the 1'ec0rd. They found the hour by chance in one
of the Seniors, rooms in a trunk. Until the year 1905 no particulars record can
be found, the searching and hiding still continued, but no one found it. With
regret the classes of '06 and 'O7 abandoned the time honored custom.
Then came the lamb. just when he began his life we do not know. When
the class of 1911 were Freshmen they captured him. To celebrate the tlrst
anniversary of this event they had a mourning dinner with the remains of the
lamb as the center of interest. No light is thrown on the reasons for his untimely
death. It is shrouded in mystery as is his origin.
Equally mysterious is the old custom of hanging the Freshman numerals on
the trees. ln 1914 the Freshman class reinstated this old custom and the oak in
front of El Campanil was chosen to receive the honor. The ceremony was cele-
brated with real pomp and grandeur. The numerals served at all times as a
constant reminder of the existence of the Freshmen.
The class of 1922 is the last class to be tormented by the mad search for hats.
For several years the colors of the incoming class were kept a great secret until
the Freshmen succeeded in bringing forth their hats.
Generally the month of October witnesses two important events in charge
of the Sophomores. The first is their informal, their first occasion to act as
hostesses at a prom. lflere it is customary to display the class banner for the
first time. A
Have you ever been awakened more pleasantly than on the Sunday morning
before the Christmas holidays? lt is then that the Seniors sing the old Christmas
carols early in the morning.
Xllith the beginning of the second semester comes the Senior table. llefore
1915 the Seniors had always used a long table, and the class of that year was
the first to use a round one. For several years the Senior Round Table held
swayg this year, because of the size of the class, the table was T-shaped.
The Xlfashington llirthday party is the first affair at which the Freshmen are
hostesses to the college. Also it is the first affair of the year honoring the
Seniors. The Georges and Marthas celebrate first with a colonial dinner.
On the last Friday night is the college picnic. And with Commencement
comes the close of another college year.
ATH LHTI CS
I lockey is not three years old in our college, hav-
ing been introduced by lflizabeth Rheem Stoner,
head of the Department of Physical Education. As
a new sport it was quickly accepted by the girls and
now stands at the head of the list of favorites. The
Mills hockey field is of regulation size, and our clubs
are of the best make, affording every opportunity
for the best development of the sport. The coach,
Miss Rosalind Cassidy, worked with unfailing effort,
dividing her time among the various classes.
According to an agreement between the Athletic
Associations of the University of California, Stan-
ford and Mills the decision to have interclass-inter-
collegiate competition had been reached. The finals
are played off between the two lower and upper
division classes in the college. The winning class is
then privileged to compete. According to the new
system, the Sophomores, having won from the
Freshmen, were to play against Stanford, but the
game was necessarily postponed because of rain.
This same difficulty occurred the previous year.
After the hard practise and training the girls were
bitterly disappointed. Because of the near approach
of other activities no new date was secured. There
has been only one hockey game between Stanford
and Mills, and this took place in 1918. Stanford
The practises for hockey began very early in
the year, and turnouis were good from all the
classes. As the end of the season came in view, we
were often up at six-thirty getting readylfor the
game. There was a good deal of competition.
The captains of the various class teams were:
Senior-junior, .ludith Campbellg Sophomore, Flor-
ence .lonesg Freshman, Ruth johnson.
Crew is a sport in which one must take real time
and work since it cannot be accomplished otherwise.
Every girl who rows must be in perfect physical
condition. The coach is Elizabeth Rheem Stoner,
assisted by Rosalind Cassidy and Erma Wlarnerg the
latter are assistants in the Department of Physical
Education. To these coaches Mills should give
much credit for the long hours devoted to turning
out a crew worthy of the college. Besides these
coaches, Mr. Babcock of Mare Island spent one
week in coaching our crews, especially in starting.
lt is thought that much of our success in the races
was due to this start.
On March twenty-seventh the crew races be-
tween the University of California and Mills were
held. It was a perfect day for races and there was
a fine crowd at Lake Merritt. Mills proved success-
full in every race, of which there were four, because
the contest was purely interclass. The time was as
follows: two minutes, thirty-six seconds, Seniorsg
two minutes, thirty-two seconds, juniors, two min-
utes. twenty-nine and two tenths seconds, Sopho-
moresg two minutes, twenty-nine and three-tenths
seconds, Freshmen. judges were selected by both
the University of California and Mills. The races
were not at all close, but both the University and
Mills deserve credit for their skillful handling of
On March thirtieth Mills held its interclass crew
races. The victorious classes were the Seniors and
the Sophomores. The crews were as follows:
Seniors: Coxswain, Helen Colgan: pilot, Ruth
Schleuterg starboard, Doris Dozier, Sarah McCrady,
Adelaide Hovey, Ruth Frankenheimer, Marjorie
Flint, Katherine Simon: port. Stella Leviston,
Lucile Ernst, May Kellogg, Florence Rodgers, Mad-
elene Smith, Mary Nafe, Lillian Couper.
Usually when one speaks of girls' baseball, there
is a round of partially hidden smiles. llut if you
could see Mills play its game of baseball, you would
realize that we develop the sport to its greatest
l'ractise begins in the spring soon as the rains
cease. The game is a regulation one, even to the
use of a hard baseball. The first contests are inter-
class and there is some real competition between the
Sophomores and Freshmen. The Sophomores
usually prove victorious.
ln the past years the event of most interest to the
students has been the Faculty-Senior baseball game.
All the players are dressed in queer costumes sym-
bolic of their team. The wearing of certain light
pink hats by certain members of the faculty has
almost become a tradition. Our coach, Elizabeth
Rheem Stoner, knows the game from all angles. It
has been through her advice that we have been able
thoroughly to understand the game. Sara Mc-
Crady, '20, is the manager for this year. Through
her eiforts Mills is getting into shape for the big
The College of the l'acitic also wishes to com-
pete with us. XYe have been forced to refuse since
that college does not belong to the athletic triangle.
The date upon which we play Stanford has not been
decided, We are all very anxious to see the results
ofithis season. Our pitcher for three years has
been lrene VVilliamson, '21. Other baseball enthu-
siasts are Dorothy King, '21, Sara McCrady,'2O.
Margaret Sloss. '21, Genevieve Anderson, '22, Mary
Clark,'2Z, Isabel VVocker,'23, Almuth Arens,'21,
and jessica W'ilbur. '21,
lt may be of interest to note that Mills through
the eH'orts of Miss Stoner was one of the first col-
leges to develop this sport to its utmost.
Coach. Elizabeth Rheem Stoner, manager. Gene-
vieve Anderson, '22. Since this is one of our oldest
sports, and one that we all love, it is with pleasure
that we looked to the Sophomore class this year.
On March eleventh the Sophomores and Fresh-
men played to see who would compete with Stan-
ford. The Sophomores won by a score of forty-
seven to seven. On March thirteenth Stanford
played the Mills Sophomores in our gymnasium.
The result was a victory for Mills with a score of
twenty-eight to eighteen.
The Sophomore team consisted of Genevieve
Anderson, Ruth Palmer, Grace Cockcroft. Elizabeth
Coffeen, Margaret Dolf, and ,lean Bailard.
The Freshmen players were: Helen Hall. L.
Brown, Rose Moulton, Yirginia Law, Beatrice Hen-
ning, Elizabeth Porteriield, ll. Bransted. Isabel
Leithold, and Helen Morey.
This year was the lirst time Mills has chosen
handball for one of its sports. It came first on the
list of athletics and so was greeted with enthusiasm.
The girls were all keen to try out and learn the new
VVe had as our coach Miss Erma XYarner. lean
Gunn. '22, was manager.
On November first we were schedule:l to compete
with the University of California. lt was rather a
sad day for us. The University presented a heavier
team and had the advantage of playing on their own
courts. Their girls had more speed and dexterity
than ours. possibly due to somewhat more practice.
But while new at the game we put up a hard Fight.
The teams were as follows:
Seniors, singles, McCradyg doubles, Ernst and
Nafe. juniors. singles. XYilliamsong doubles, King
and Sloss. Sophomores, singles, hlonesg doubles,
Irlailard an'l Abrahamson. Freshmen, singles.
XVockerg doubles, Johnston and Vtfilliams.
Although tennis is not one of our major sports, it
is, nevertheless, one of the most universally played
in the college. The contests in this sport have us-
ually been interclass. This year Mills was scheduled
to play the University of California on March twen-
ty-seventh. The coaches in this sport are Miss
Stoner, Miss Cassidy and Miss XYarner. The tennis
manager is ,lean Hailard.
It was disappointing when the finals could not
be played since enthusiasm ran high this year.
ln the future we hope to set our tennis tinals
when the rain will not be apt to interfere with the
results. Mills is hoping to have more courts since
the ones we have at present are not adequate.
The people who showed the greatest interest are
Sara McCrady, '20, Margaret Sloss, '21, Dorothy
King, '21, lrene XYilliamson. '21, glean Bailard,,22,
Ruth ilohnston, '23, Virginia Simler, '25.
Xlalking is fast becoming a popular sport among
the Mills College girls. This year fourteen girls
will he awarded the club M pin at the college picnic.
This year the girls have taken many hikes around
the bay district, including one to Mt. Tamalpais,
Muir VVoods, liig Lagoon, and the Joaquin Miller
The girls who will he awarded pins for member-
ship for this year are Mary Nafe, Lillian Couper,
Ethel Eaton, Marjorie Spring, Margaret Andrade.
Olga Scheuermann, Yirginia Simler, Pauline Mc-
Lean, Margaret Hunt, XYinifred VVilliams, Lena

and Iisther Sellman.
l FIELD DAY
liield Day at Mills really means a summing up
of the track activities during the year. The track
meet has always been interclass. Field Day is under
the supervision of Elizabeth Rheem Stoner. assisted
by Rosalind Cassidy, Erma Xlarner, and the four
The events include high jump, running and stand-
ing broad jump, discus for form and distance, forty
and fifty-yard dashes. Practice in track is carried
on mostly in the gymnastic classes.
This year there has been some discussion of hold-
ing our track meet on the same day that Bryn Mawr
schedules hers. The results will be compared and
the victorious college decided upon. lt will be the
first time any competition has taken place between
an Iiastern and lYestern woman's college. Mills is
working unusually hard, therefore, to maintain her
Our track field offers every advantage. lt is of
regulation size. The field is equipped with a jump-
ing pit of sand. Our jumping standard and discus
are part of the gymnasium equipment.
The first event will be high jump. Mills not only
jumps for height. but for good form. Last year
,lean Bailard. '22, took first place with a jump of
four feet. Others who have gained mention in the
high jump are Dorothy King, jean Gunn, and
Almuth Arens. This year we expect to exceed the
records of last year.
The broad jump. both standing and running, was
well done last year. ln fact. they out-scored the
records of previous years. The winners in both
standing and running jumps were ,lean llailard. '22,
First placeg lrene lYilliamson, '21, second place.
Discus is taken both for form and distance.
Great pride is taken in this sport as Mills Considers
it one of her best. Those who gained mention from
previous track meets are Sara McCrady, '2O. lrene
Williamson, '21, and Dorothy King, 'Zl.
liesides the above names, there are contests in
fencing and archery. Fencing is under the super-
vision of Miss Warner. Miss Stoner, with her ex-
perience in archery, coaches this art. The girls are
not only instructed in shooting with the best form,
but also in the care, stringing, and unstringing of the
bows. During the year Miss Stoner has had several
famous archers on the campus to demonstrate for
The annual field day of Mills College was a
worthy result of the year's work. At no other time
is there a better example of clean, honorable com-
petition with excellent results.
