Auntie Peck is another one, Of our bright and noble crew, If you will kindly speak to her She'll be an aunt to you. The younger Corning, Miss Corinne, ls known to talk a lot. But does she talk in Drama class, Why, no, certainly not. Then Mildred Corning as we know. Can sing just like a lark. Shh-, I hear her practicing now, Be quiet,-listen.-hark! ! l l Helen Fish was on the house committee Over in Johnston Hall, And while she held that office, The marks in showers did fall. Marjorie Smith is a very nice girl, But the rumor met my ears, That she is very spoony, And yet quite young in years. Marie Mirlack went to Wayland, So the records show, But why she left young men, for girls We should just like to know. 34 E S P E C l A L S Two loving room-mates of lVlcl..aren, Next fall upon my viewg So Marjorie McLean and Edna Schorer, I'll introduce to you. They certainly are different, Different! I should say. For Edna 'rises 'fore the bell, While Marjorie in bed doth stay. But there comes another one, l-ler name is Esther Youle. I pause and say this to myself, Don't tell tales out of school. Cf l-lelen Spence with long blon And intellectual frown, l know this one thing only, She lives, down in the town. Alma Upmeyer, also lives, Way down in the city, So I really can't say anything About her in this ditty. Our artist, Florence Anderson, Herein displays her skill, de braids, For all our pictures she has drawn, Of course, against their will. My name is Vera Nolan, l wrote this dreadful rhyme, Don't scold me just at present, Wait till some future time. 'L jf' 'ES yu - ,' 1' ' iqgllx 1.

Splinters By Emil Liebling No one so alive as a dead heat. The teacher discusses-the pupil cusses. Practice in haste-repent at leisure. Work hard-rest easy. ON USING THE PEDAL: Use it continually, but not continuously. When in doubt-don't. Do not mistake it for a hassock. The pedal is a good servant. but a poor master. Ilt is easier to tell what is music, than what music is. So few composers have something to say--the rest have to say some- Discords are misplaced chords. Better a candid than a candied opinion. Giving lessons is one thing-teaching another. Always tell the truth to pupils: if they are sensible, it does some good: if not, it does no harm. Anxious inquirer: "Will it pay to study music?" Cynic: "Madam, it will pay somebody." A happy country: "where the pianists cease from troubling and the critics are at rest." First the composer scores his work and then the critic scores the com- poser. It is a long distance from the head to the fingers. 37 There are more composers of notes, than of note, More rank pianists, than pianists of rank. Many think they are called to do great things, but alas! it proves to be a false alarm. The best things are learned, not taught. We cannot all be concertmasters, somebody has to play second fiddle. Do not mistake slowness for thoroughness. Some pupils are poor starters, but good stayers. Feed your audience, but do not stuff them. Some mold public opinion, others mould it. Welcome the coming-speed the parting pupil. Do -not wait for lthe latchkey to success-get a jimmy. The critic is necessary, yet superfluous. It is not sufficient to keep the irons in the fire, you must also keep the fire hot. Better have nerve, than nerves. The practice of today is the making of tomorrow. You invite failure by anticipating it. You can practice too much, but never enough. When we are young we are apt to be very exacting a-ncl hard to please, but we finally learn to be satisfied with very little. The theme of life is furnished us, the variations are our own, a higher power writes the Finale.

A dancing doll did stunts so grand To please strangers from every land. Santa Claus, with his beard of snow, Displayed the wonders of the show. Bo Peep and Buster Brown were there, And dear old Tige with festive air. In Mary's garden flowers grew, Roses and poppies and butter cups too. Molther Goose by the chimney sat With a Christmas tree and a big black cat. Spinning all the live long day Sat Priscilla in her gown of gray. Near her sat a colored mammy And in her arms, a little Sammy. The Singing Doll shared her applause With the Yellow Kid and Santa Claus. The Baby Doll, with Howing locks, Gurgled and smiled at the Jack-in-'the-Box. Across the hall a gypsy old For a small sum your fortune told. Near year another stunt there 'll be, As good as ours? Well,-wait and see. -M. 49 B. and C. R Our Class Talents I am sure that you could never find a class of more varied talents than this class of l9l0. It rises to meet every occasion with the ability and grace of a body of professionals. No one can out shine us in the literary line. Our essays are masterpieces--fjust ask our teachersj. They are eagerly soughtby the foremost publishers. In science, we have made many interesting experiments, discoveries have been made and Mr. Edison himself is glad of a chance to consult us. We also have some wonderful musical prodigies in this class. Our singing soothes the tempests and the strains from our instruments charm the beasts, as those from Orpheu's lyre. Ancl dancing-well you ought to have come to our "prom." Surely the grace of Serpsichore has inspired us and we are rivals of Isaclora Duncan and Maud Allen. This class, however, is not at all boastful of th-ese talents and is as modest and mild as one could wish. -D.

"Gracious, what a lot of old books and papers," she exclaimed. "Wonder what they all are." She delved into the box. A minute later, her fellow-Freshman, who was at the far end of the attic, investigating a four-inch bottle to see if it contained the Hat, heard a call. "Oh, Kit, come here! l've found a whole pile of old papers, dated way back in 1909 .and 1910. Ten years ago, just think! Let's read some." By this time Kit had reached the box. She continued, "This one loolfs interesting. 1t's called 'One Night at the Planlfintonf 1'll read it aloud." "Milwaukee!" After many hours of travel on the return trip, at the close of the Christmas vacation, this announcement was joyfully CU received by all the Milwaukee-Downer girls aboard that belated train. We alighted and ploughed our way through many a deep snowdrift to the baggage office, where we were greeted by the strange remark, "Go to the Plankintoin Hotel!" Go to the Plankingtonl We looked at each other in blank amazement. What had happened? I-lad the college burned? Our wonder was suddenly checked when we were :told that, on account of theblizzard, the cars could not ruin out to Downer. A night at th-e Plankington would be quite a curiosity, so about fifty of us took the car for the hortel. Some had extra money for hotel bills, some had notg some had a sufficiency of baggage, some had none. But to the Plankington we went, and into the lobby we all walked- such a sight! Many of the other girls were already there: it seemed as if the whole school had been transferred. I "Any rooms left?" "Yes," but the clerk neglected to mention the fact that there were just fifteen rooms for fifty girls! Three bell boys endeavored to carry all the suit cases at once. By hanging a half a dozen on each arm, and carrying several in each hand, they succeeded perfectly in taking all of us to our rooms at once. Although it was -near midnight, no one wasted the opportunity of having some fun, the details of which will be omitted. an as -is as is At last we retired, only to have our 'slumbers disturbed by a horrible rumbling and rattling noise. We listened, The fearful noise gradually became more and more distinct. We strained every nerve. At last-it penetrated the recesses of our half conscious minds, awakening in' us memories of Holton Hall,-it was the Radiator! Again we slept peace- fully. Suddenly the clang of bells resounded. The fire-gong! From force of habit we arose, closed the windows and transom, turned on the light, and were about to rush madly down the hall,-when the gong 87 sounded again, and we realized that it came from without. The fire, which was directly across ,the street from our rooms, was soon extinguished. As dawn approached, we retired for the third time, earnestly hoping nothing more would happen to disturb our slumbers. ' The next morning, as we were absolutely sure that the cars would not run out to College before noon, we breakfasted and then slowly ploughed our way out to the college. During the following week, small slips appeared on the Bulletin Board, which read, "Please pay your Hotel Bill." "Well, I wonder who paid the bills. Those girls must have had a lol of fun. Here's something called 'M. D. C. As Viewed From Belowz' " "Where did you come from?" said one little particle of dust to 'the new comer as it entered the vacuum cleaner with haughty sweep. "Where did I come from!!! Where have you been all this while? I've nestled in a corner of the rug near Miss Sabin's desk this long time. just missed being caught a dozen times after you left, but I hung on tight every time I saw that hose coming my way. How did all of you get in here without your admit slips anyway? O yes,-." But before he had time to say more, there arose a general clamor in the cleaner. Each lilttle dust particle was yelling wildly, to be heard above the din created by every other one. I "What is it all about?" "O, tell us too!" "Who said what?" Then what happened?" Silence! Be quiet! Don't yell like that: speak in an ordinary tone of voice! There, that's better! What was that you were saying? Do all students have to go to the office every day?" "Well, you would have thought so if you had had to dodge being stepped on every hve minutes. Whait do they go for? How should I know? Maybe,-" "Maybe,-Lots of satisfaction in that! Hm!" inter- rupted a plump speck, "guess I've been in Miss Conant's room. Music? if you're polite you'll call it that! Heard everything, alsolutely everything from scales upon scales to Beethoven, ragtime, and Wagner." "That will dol Don't tell us all you know about music at present! Haven't I had the best time of all under the precious table in Johnston Hall? It was great: rather mysterious at first though, when I heard such sonorous voices each Friday night and couldn't imagine to whom they be- longed. Now where do you think they came from? The girls didn't have bad colds at all. No, that isn't right. Guess again! No they hadnft been yelling at class games either! Vocal expression? No, not a bit of it. That's right! Good! You guessed it! Those deep voices belonged to men, real live men. When I discovered that, I sat bolt upright on a long bristle, and by stretching my neck, saw Ruth Hamilton, and Nilla Hoard, making strenuous efforts to act their best. No, that wasn't all! no u 88 There was a whole row of real live men on the window-seat too! And then each time,-." "Wie had just as good a time watching the girls in our hall," issued from two particles, who claimed to have lived in McLaren Hall, "and we'd be willing to wager that nothing can surpass their after-dinner vaudeville performance. We've nearly split our sides laughing at Stoppy. O, and we've heard the best whistling!" "I-low can you express yourselves thus in my presence? Nothing can surpass your vaudeville performances! Why, I've spent the last few weeks in a Holton Hall rug, and been -nearly crushed to death dozens of times by trustees and other dignitaries, who were being entertained there. If I should tell all I've,"--was heard from a decidedly conceited speck. "And I have the wildest experience to--." "Hush, hush!" this from the sentinel at the entrance, "I see the janitor approaching to roll us away, and probably dump us." "That's all of that one. I don't believe those dust particles would have lain around lilfe that if they'd had the system of compressed air clean- ing that we have now. Here's something about 'The Simple Life' " "Agnes," said my room-mate one evening, "you heard Miss Ormond say to-day that 'fresh air was the best preventative for colds,' didn't you? Well, to-night, we'r-e going to reform and sleep with both windows open wide. We'll lead 'The Simple l..ife.' " "But, Margaret," I remonstrated, "the simple life may be all right on an ordinary night, but surely not when it's eighteen below zero. Do be sensible." - ' Pooh, what are eighteen measly little degrees below zero," re- sponded Margaret, "when one considers what the fresh air means?" "Well, I give you my warning. As soon as It gets too cold. I'm going to Mildred's room and sleep with her, rules or no rules." With 'these words, I proceeded to prepare for the night. Soon we were both ready for bed and without a,single word, Margaret opened both windows. Whiff! down blew some papers on the desk and it was with a vain attempt to steel my heart, that I saw poor Peggy stoop in the cold wind to pick them up. "Peggy, dear," I called, "please close those windows. I'm so cold." "I don't care if you are," responded the now half-frozen girl. "I'm going to sleep this way." And with that she crawled into bed. I lay silently for a few moments, and then, slipping on my kimona and slippers, noiselessly went to Mildred's room. Two weeks later, when Margaret came out of the Infirmary, we heard the account of the rest of that night. "After you left, Agnes," she said, I slipped over and took your bed- covers, for it was rather cold. I lay awake a long time, but soon I be- gan 'to think my feet and arms were icicles. Then the North Pole and an iceberg began waltzing to the tune of "On a Winter's Night," and soon 89 all the chairs turned to polar bears. I couldn't imagine what it all meant, for at that moment the snowballs, which were jumping around the room, began to juggle themselves on my forehead. I didn't mind that much until a pair of skates joined them. At that I screamed, for it hurt dreadfully. I awoke to find the nurse at my bedside asking what was the matter. It didn't take her long to hnd out, nor has it been very pleasant these last two weeks, trying to recover from the effects of 'The Simple l..ife.' " "Signed, By One Who Knows. Wonder if they ever tried it again. They must have had delicate constitutions,-we have our windows open every night. O, this one sounds exciting!-it's called 'A Romance of the Rear Campusl' " One morning in early spring, the sun peeped in alt my window in a most friendly and inviting manner: the breeze, gently whispering sweet mes- sages from the enchanting world of nature, lured me forth to enjoy the morning not yet fully grown into day. As I slipped along, inhaling the fragrant air, each blade of grass greeted me with a glistening dewdrop, a-nd the birds in the distance called sweet notes of welcome. The perfect beauty, the perfect harmony, and the perfect peace and repose fascinalted my restless mind, and calmed it as no physician's prescription had succeeded in doing. But this proved to be on-e of the least of my pleasures. I passed as one in a dream to my accustomed haunt among the deep purple violets that fringe the pond. All the tiny dwelllers of this ideal spot were already wide awake, and nodding briskly under their dewdrops. My attention was attracted by one particularly large and deeply colored violet, who had ad- vanced perilously near the brink of the pond, in an attempt to see his re- flection in the mirrorlike surface. Presently, Iheard whispers about me, and strained my nerves to catch the drift of the conversation. Tomy surprise and delight, I learned that my violet was on this delightful day to be a bridegroom. This then accounted for his careful toilet! Vain little flower. My interest, now thoroughly aroused, bade me stay and learn more of the events'of "Violet Town." The groom soon went fonth to the abode of his bride, already robed and waiting, and adorned with tiny ,glistening jewels. Everything in readiness, the bridal party advanced to the altar, in the shade of a budding thomapple tree. Here the simple ceremony was performed by a stately blade of grass, the music was furnished by a melodious meadow-lark. I-low I longed to stay and look on at the wedding breakfast, which followed, but my conscience brought me to a realization of the fact :that I had been a rude intruder, and in order to escape censure, I hastily departed. just as I was about lto leave, I spied the home of my two violets, which was loca-ted in a different section of this floral community: it nestled oosily on the island under the protecting shade of a huge violet leaf, in close proximity to the altar. 90 "That's a lovely one! Doesn't it sound just like violet-time? 1 wish spring would hurry up and come. Here's a paper that has no heading. 1'll read it anylvayz' "They h.ad the good old class spirit back in those days too, didn't they? Here's another 'Simple Lifez' " ' "When I was home at Easter time, a young friend of mine, who by the way is planning on attending this college next year, said that she thought int would be an ideal place to lead the simple life." "She did, did she? What's her conception of a simple life anyhow? Arise at 6:30, I supposeg breakfast at 7, inhale a little oxygen, work till 3:15, exercise a trifle, nap awhile, indulge in dinner, listen to a strain or two of music, prepare for 'the next day's recitations and retire! Well, that's a model day all right, but models don't endure the stress of circum- stances here. What did you tell her anyhow?" "O, I said that we had a lout of attractions and duties, that weren't printed in the catalogue. By the time I concluded, she began to realize that we weren't the kind thait picked out an atom of atmosphere and raved over it." "Well hardly: nor do we have the artistic eye that will ca-refully adjust one modest violet in a huge vase, and call it exquisite." "O, no, decided-ly not! I gave her a fair sample of a most com- monplace week just before vacationg how we had every minu-te planned for, for weeks ahead of time: and how dreadfully inconvenient it was to have some unexpected interruptions upset all one's plans. Do you know, last Monday I worked steadily till 3:!5, and then took a walk, getting back just in time for a lecture? After that I guess I did nothing more, did I?" "Of course, you did! You played basketball after dinner, don't you remember?" "O, yes! Did that Tuesday too, even though I simply had to go down town, and be back in time for a four o'clock reception. And right after dinner we approved men for the informal! Did you ever do that?" "No, is it dreadful, or do you acquire a great deal of inside infor- mation?" "You get enough of that, but that doesn't count, for everyone else knows it too. Well, we sent our invitations for the dance too!" "Do you expect anyone to read them?" ' "H-orrofrs, don't suggest that! But let me tell you about the rest of the week, which was occupied with a social session of the Kodak, a Cum- rtux meeting, dinner down town with father, basketball game, and another lecture on Friday. Pretty fair sample, isn't it?" "Yes, but dion't begin to enumerate the one hundred and one things that you left for Saturday, because the rest of the week was too busy to hind room for them, and how really glad you were to have Sunday, a day o rest." A 91 "Well, I like it, and it's good for me, even if I do wish occasionally that recitations would cease just long enough to give me a chance 'to snooze." "That must have conveyed a pretty good idea of things as th-ey are to our prospective student." "It surely did! Instead of coming here to rest, she decided to come here to wake up. The necessary stimulants won't be lacking either. That reminds me that in four minutes I'm due at a Junior affair. See you later! " ' Hm! Sounds faintly familiar. That's about the hind of a "Simple Life" we lead, only with a bigger question mark. And the papers were thrust back into the box, and the two girls sped from the attic. 'It was the beginning of the second half and the score was I2-l2. The whistle blew, and the two teams ran out into the gymnasium. Green hung from the balcony on one side, and from the other, yellow. As the teams 'took their places, there came the l-2-3-4! 3-2-l-4! 2-4! 2-4! Who are we- for! juniors!" But first and last was the "U-Rah-Rah! !9l2!" of the Sophomores. ' The ball was tossed up, fumbled in the center,-then passed straight down through Sophomore hands into' the basket! The cheers from the yellow were deafening! But in a few minutes the Juniors had made a basket, too! Then for awhile neither side gained. The ball went up and down the field, now stopped by the centers, now thrown fultility at the bas- ket, now rescued by the guards. There was splendid work on both sides, -both were playing their best. Then the goals began in again,-the juniors would make one,-the Sophomores two,- and the Juniors one, again. And so it went until there were just a few minutes of time left, and the score was 20-20. There was no sound from the balcony,-the specta- tors watched in breathless silence. Someone pulled out a watch, which acted as a signal for everyone to do likewise,-the silence was intensified as they realized that there was one minute more before time would be up. The ball was being fumbled now. The play lagged,-the girls seemed to move, oh, so slowly! They were all tired, worn-out. Then something seemed to bring new life,-the game was on again. The timekeeper was looking at her watch. The ball was passing back and forth, up and down the field, batted here and there in swift throws and catches. Neither side held it,-then suddenly, it passed straight down from one end of the field to the other, into the ha-nds of a forward. She poised it a second, then threw,- the ball rose cl-ear in the air and down through the heart of the basket,-then "Time" was called! The balcony went wild! The score was 22-20, in favor-.' "Oh, dear, the last of this sheet is torn off! How exciting!" "Oh, Kit! did you hear that! The dinner-bell! Ana! look at us! We'll probably get dressed in time for dessert." 92 "Night WatchmanesS" The hours of 'night were fleeting fast, As through Macl..aren Hall she passed, Ars up and down the stairs she came, This stranger, with a stranger name NIGHT-WATCHMANESS! Her steps were slow, her booted feet Re-echoed as she went the beat Three passages, and basement dark. But who is she? I'll tell you hark! NIGHT-WATCHMANESS! In days of yore, she fixed our clothes Which helped us much. But then arose This vital question bright it shone, And now, into what has she grown? NIGHT-WATCHMAN ESS ! "Risk not a fire," the powers said. "Be safe, not sorry--alive or dead. We must have watching while we rest." So this new scheme was put to test. NIGHT-WATCHMANESS! No man there was. who wished to be Night-watchman, here at M. D. C. And so the task to woman fell, No-r could man clo it half so well I NIGHT-WATCHMAN ESS ! Three times, at midnight, two, and four, She passes by each student's door. If she should see a burglar's gun I wonder would she faint or run? NIGHT-WATCH MANESS? 93 At break of clay, the third time round, This watcher heard a stantliing sound Of "FIRE," and rushing to the scene, She woke a student from her dream. NIGHT-WATCHMANESS! At last she finished going through McLaren, Holton, Johnston too. No fires, no burglars, just the same, I think she is a very game NIGHT-WATCH MANESS! Then, in the morning, cold and gray, Tired, but satisfied, she lay. "I've done my duty, as you see. ' It's really 'not half bad to be H NIGHT-WATCHMAN ESS l 94 Virginiafs "M" "Dear little girl:- Busy morning. Can write only a line. Your lette-r appertaining to possible success in basketball just received. Am very glad there is a chance of your making the team. Am beginning to feel at last that you are getting over your one-sided, exclusively mental development. You know how dis- appointed I was that your brother was so much of a grind and I feared that you would be like him. Win your M and I'll be much more proud of you tha-n if you win that S in History you are always talking about. Fine weather. Am feeling better. F ather." "Oh, dear! If that isn't just like him. But I can't complain be- cause I knew I'd get just lthat kind of an answer. This business of being athletic against your will is a bit depressing at times." "What's wrong, Vir? Didn't your father appreciate the puff your Cumtux thing got?" This from a corner of the bed, where Virginia's room- mate was busy with several fat letters. "'Appreciate it? Never even mentioned it. I'm going to hang up a motto over the door. 'Get that basketball M.' That's all he wants or cares for." Helen looked after her thoughtfully for a moment as she went out to her next class. "And yet she adores a man who ca-n't appreciate her any more than that." Late that afternoon, Helen came in from her walk, to find Virginia curled up on the bed, still i-n her gym suit. 'Her cheeks were flushed: her eyes were shining: she was all one n-ervous, joyous heap of excitement. Helen looked at her i-n amazemen-t. What could have shaken her so far out of her usual quiet serenity? "Why Vir,-what has happened? You look as if Miss Sabin might have given you a scholarship to the University of Heidelberg or Copen- hagen or something." "Scholarship! Study go hang!-Goodness what am I saying? I musn't begin using slang. Father doesn't approve of athletic girls who are masculine and horrid." "lVlasculine! Slang! You!" Helen dropped into a chair and gazed at her roommate in dumb astonishment. "My dear,-I am going to make the team and get my M. Miss Dickerson said so. Isn't it wonderful? You see I hadn't any hope of ever playing better than Betty. I k-now that I do good steady playing, but 95 she is-, well you've seen her in a game. But she has been having too many good times lately and has let her work slide. Miss Dickerson says she can't possibly work her standings up high enough to be entitled to an M unless she passes her exams awfully well. For once it has paid to be a grind, and not one of these all round, popular people who get everything, and leave out in the cold, some poor stupid mortals who are trying to please a dear of a father, who can be mighty unreasonable at times." At the unusual tinge of bitterness in Virginia's voice, Helen looked at her keenly for a moment, then went over and put her arm across her shoulder with a sympathetic touch of the sweet camaradiere which always existed between them. "I'm mighty glad, Virginia," she said quietly. "You deserve it. Better get dressed now or you'll be late for dinner. Be back after a bit." Presently Virginia got up slowly and began changing her clothes. Somehow Helen's quiet caress had calmed her and brought her out of an excited -nervous state of mind very unusual with her. She began to think over what had happened in a more quiet and reasonable way. , "How I must have amazed Helen," she thought with an amused smile. "But even she doesn't know how much this means to me because she doesn't know father. If only he could be satisfied with what I can do well without forcing me to win his approval with what I don't care any- thing about. At least I have won it.-at last!" And a grim little line of determination appeared around her mouth. Almost at once a wistful expression followed it. "If only it weren't at the expense of someone else. Betty is a dear, if she can do everything and I'm envious of her. And she plays much better, especially in a game. The team will lose by it, I'm afraid. Well,-if I couldn't win out by better playing, I've won anyway, and I don't care how, as long as it was fair." Again the hard little look appeared, just a bit unnatural and out of place on Virginia's sweet, sensi- tive face. ' "Goodness,-there's the bell.-and my hair isn't even combed." A few eveni-ngs later, as Virginia was on her way to the library, she passed a group of girls talking together very earnestly. They lowered their voices as she approached, and alrthough she merely noticed that one of them was her roommate and another the college basketball manager. she had the slightly, uncomfortable impression from their manner that she was fthe sub- ject of conversation. One or two puzzling snatches of the talk reached her as she turned the corner, but she let -them slip from her mind as utterly un- important. She heard Helen say, "I tell you, Esther, it's unfair to both of them. Vir can't help thinking Betty contemptible and-." That night when they were getting ready for bed, Helen suddenly blurted out, "Say Vir, you have always advocated the idea of the in- dividual sacrificed for the common good, haven't you?" "Yes. Why? What put that into your head?" 96 "Nothing Ready to have me turn the light off? Good-night." And after a short silence, "You have also said that I always understood you better than anyone else, haven't you?" "Why Helen, what has come over you? Why do you say such queer things?" "Nothing Good-night." "Helen, please-." "No,--good-night, dear." The next day, when Betty with all her joyous, breezy charm of manner had come tumbling into their room, had a talk with Virginia and skipped merrily out again, ut.erly unconscious of what she left behind, Virginia understood and was glad thalt there was Helen and their friend- ship. Ul-lello, Virginia! Busy? May I see you for a minute?" "Certainly," with a smile, "look as long and hard as you please." "Now don't criticise my English. Yes, do,--that's just what I wanted to talk with you about. You must know-do I dare tmuss up those pillows? They look so neat." Virginia turned away from her desk and faced her caller with a hurt little smile. Why did her pillows, her table, her own self, everything about her, always seem to invite anything ex- cept being Hmussed up?" Why did the girls always romp on I-lelen's bed and not on hers?" "Certainly, you may sit on all of them if you like. They are for use." ' "Well," Betty continued, "you must know what a horrid mess I'm in about exams. I can't possibly get through unless I'm literally hauled through, unless someone simply crams the stuff into me. I can learn fast you know,-but I haven't a decent note on anything and I don't know how to go at things. I'm not a bit logical,-worse luck! I really don't care much for myself, because I'm not coming back, but Esther wants me on the college basketball team for the cup game. Goodness knows, I d0n't mind nolt making it, for I won two Ms last year and I've almost al- ways played in the basketball games, but they think they need a fast center to play against that tall Seminary child-I forget her name-so I suppose it's up to me to scrape through my exams. Now the point is, will you help -My stars! I completely forgot that you are my sub. Virginia, forgive a flash and kneeling with her scarlet face buried i-n Virginia's lap.. Vir- ginia had passed from wonder at Betty's unexpected beginning to the old state of silent hurt, way inside. What more could she expect? How could she have supposed, even for a moment, that she counted for anything except Es and Ss in History and English, and such tthings? "Never mind, Betty. I dont, I'm sure. I quite realize how much better a game you play than I. Please d-on't feel so dreadfully penitent. You said I could help some way. What did you mean?" 97 "Oh, Virginia, I can't ask you now. You see I thought, if I thought at all,-that you didn't care much for basketball, or whether you got Ms and things like that,-and that may be you-I,-no, I can't. It would be too awfully cheeky." "What is it Betty? Tell me please. If it is something that will help in any way to win back the cup for the college, I want to know." "Well, I,-will you help me cram and get through the exams? You are the only girl I know in school who can do it. There it's out,-and I'm horribly ashamed of myself." Virginia looked at her in a startled way for a moment, then pulling herself from Betty's arms, she got up and went to the window and stood staring out across the campus for another moment, a good long one this time. Finally she turned back with a quick smile and impulsively held out her hands. "I,-yes, I know I can do it and I will Betty. Can you come over Thursday evening after Y. W. and work on History?" "Yes indeed. Virginia, you are a dear. There's the bell, I must go. Good-bye, and thank you so much." "Remember,-your end of the compact will be to win that game. Good-bye." Then as the door slammed on Betty's flyaway exit, "And I never can make father understand,--even if I wanted to try. Oh, dear, -I wish Helen would come. I,-I want somebody-." The rest was smothered in a pillow as Virginia tumbled in a heap on the bed. -H. H.

' At first my thoughts turned toward the West: but "absence makes the heart grow weary," and I am beginning to think that my "ideal man" is a poet -one who has beautiful ideas aboult friendship and love. Confidentially yours, Berenice Maude Haukins. Dear Editor:- I have often thought about my "ideal man" so can answer your ques- tion at once. I am not particular about his age or looks: but I want some- one to love and cuddle me. Longingly yours, Ella Lucile Wood. Dear Editor:- Since coming to college, I have been so busy getting ideal men for other girls that I have not given much thought to my own ideas on the sub- ject-so to speak. And in fact, it has always been ideal men with me intsead of an ideal man-sort of a safety in numbers-as it were. Tranquilly yours, - Emmagene Hayward. Dear Editor:- Since Christmas, I have met so many men that my ideas. on this subject have become very much confused, and for that reason, I ask to be excused from answering your question. Socially yours, Gertrude Van Dyke. Dear Editor:- In reply to your question, I refer you to the following address: F. R. Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Securely yours, Martha Rahr. 100 Dear Editor:- Until last year, I always disdained the idea of an "ideal man" as silly and sentimental, but the influence of a friend is great, so 'now I am beginning to think that somewhere there is a "Prince Charming" for me too.

Those pines give the booths such a soft, soothing appear- ance, while the red festoons and the white Hakes of cotton break the monotony of the one color effect. Those very colors help to put o-ne inlto a holiday mood. It is a true Christmas fair, both in spirit and in appearance." "You wanted some neck-wear, didn't you? Come over this way to the Third Year booth. where you can get every variety. There are jabots, crocheted collors, bows and ties of all colors and shapes: some plainly pleated and set with Irish point lace, with a dignified and majectic ap- pearance, which might do very well for grandmother. Others fancier with fuffy gauze ruffles, which would appeal to the social butterfly. Sweet sixteen will be sure to find the very thing in the line of graceful little bows. Each and every one's taste can be satisfied: if not all here at the Third Year's, then at the Second Year booth, where they are especially handling things made of ribbon. There are the dearest hat-pin holders, bags, ribbon picture frames, pin-cushions and all sorts of novelties. Perhaps too, the Juniors booth with its general fancy work can offer whalt you are looking for. Dear old Santa has forgotten no one in his Christmas plans at Mil- waukee-Downer."

CHI " iLife " Spring Fashion Number Since Easter vacation, the cam- pus has seen many new and beau- tiful creations, both in hats and clreses. Among the most striking of they hats seen, was an untrimmed tan felt model very manish in shape and worn with a white automobile veil tied under the chin. For the most' part the hats show a marked resem- blance to those worn last spring, especially is this true of those of the faculty. On the Beach, the costumes worn present a striking similarity, the Middy Blouses being almost uni- versal. These blouses may be worn in the dining rooms, or class-rooms if belted in: otherwise not. The gowns for the Promenade. the great social event of the year, are now arriving, and are the sub- ject of much discussion. The ques- tion of "to wear, or not to wear" a train, is much debated, and the Seniors have unanimously decided in the affirmative. The simple little white gowns will be worn that even- ing by a greater number than usual this year. These gowns have round necks and short sleeves and are easily laundered. With apologies to the Ladie's Home journal, we will here answer a few questions for the benefit of all our readers. M. R.-Your questions concern- ing a trousseau we are answeri-ng by relturn mail. K.--No, French heel slippers are in good taste in the class- roomg not even the Frnch class- TICVCI' l'00ITl. R. H.-Yes, ruffles will be worn again this year, although not as full as last year. L. K.--Large plaids and stripes are not becoming to many people, and in your case, we would not recommend them. S.-Plaid taffeta and valencienes lace is a new combination of this season.

At last the great day arrived: great throngs crowded the back cam- pus. During the boat-race, the first of the series, excitement waxed high. The girls arranged themselves on one side of the pond, each carrying a string attached to an exquisitely carved ship. The object was to fol- low the shore line, and see who could first suceed in pulling her boat to the opposite side. Amid loud cheers, Gertrude Peck reached the goal first. This was especially exciting because seminary hopes hadbeen placed high on Mary Brown, who had unfor- tunately tripped over her string, and thus put herself out of the running. Second in order was the baseball game played in the cool shade of an calc-tree, in which by premeditated, skillful manoeuvres the Seminary champion won the victory. Third in ordercamethte big event, croquet. This did not meet the ex- pectations of the audience,--it was slew, owing to the difficulty ex- perienced by the contestants in managing their trains. Beatrice Zwetow won this for the Seminary. Fourth came thepeanut race, won by Maude Hawkins, who arrived at the goal with the record-breaking number of four peanuts on her knife. Hilarious excitement made this game interesting. Several of the contes- tants were forced to abandon the race, owing Ito the fact that not having taken gymnasium their mus- cular strength was not sufhcie-nt for the endurance required. Last and greatest, came the tug- of-war. Many entered into this with great spirit. Among those on the side of the college were Emmagene J . ,114- rilt fg aitt'. t Hayward, Marelie Schirmer, Laura Stern, Ruth Hyde, Marjorie, Gladys, and Lucie Holmes, Lillian Knell, and many others of great athletic spirit, and on the side of the seminary were Wanda Best, Susan Van Duser, Ruth Stark, Hel-en Klode, Loraine Haskin, Kath-erine McCillis, and many girls who had not taken part in the other races, but whose enthusiastic athletic spirit could not restrain them from joinin-g fthe tug-of-war at least. The college, under the valiant leadership of Faith Smith, won the "rope." Amid great cheering and loud re- joicing, the college was presented with the cup.

Famous over all the country, This most mighty Downerkeewis. In this noted hall of, learning Are four tribes, the highest Seniors, Eight most learned maidens are they, Dressed in flowing robes of mid-night, On their heads, the caps of knowledge. Five dwell in McLaren wigwam, Three in the Milwaukee village. Would you know more of the Seniors? One, a maid with hair like sunshine Is the big chief in McLaren. Calls war-councils every sixth day, Warning, chiding, speaking this wise: "Oh, my children, my poor children, Listen to these words of wisdom. Squelch them, give them marks as war Then slips, if the marks avail not: For we'll have 'no strife or noises In the wigwam of McLaren. Two there are from Manitowoc, One, a young brave soon will wed. "As unto the bow the cord is, So unto the man is woman. Though she bends him, she obeys him, Though she draws him, yet she follows Useless each, without the other." Seniors nings, him, Thus her youthful Hiawatha quoted to himself and pondered And her right hand friend, Johanna, Planted crops within a small box, And they climbed high, in the window, Of the Physics council tent. All the while this maid directeth, Games and races of the young tribes, Who would grow up strong and brave. 110 Two more of this tribe are chieftains, l Both are dwellers in McLaren, One has Big Chief Cowles, each fourth day Tell at dinner of a meeting Of the Young Maid's Christian Council, In the Lodge of the Alumnae. And the other, in the big tent, Once each moon at IO:30, Mounts the platform, and discusses S. G. A. with all the camp. Of the three said village maidens, One loves well to do the war dance Of :the ball, and net, and racket. She it was who first discovered That "lckies" skull concealed the Hat. And the second, who but lately joined those of the "Great Black Robe," Has enough brains for a warrior And will wend her way, in Autumn, To still higher camps of wisdom On the beautiful Mendota. The third maiden of Milwaukee Long has been at Downerkeewis, just as many years has been here As there are maids in her whole tribe. That completes this poor description Of the many charms one finds In the members of this highest, Highest tribe at Downerkeewis. In the month when leaves are falling, When we close our summer camp, And return again to Downer, We will miss these Senior Maidens, Miss them for their pleasant faces And the lessons they have ltaught us. We will say "Farewell with sadness On the day, alas, of parting. Gitche Mianit-o, the Mighty! The Great Spirit, the Creator, Wilt those grant them every gladness? Health, Prosperity attend them, Peace and Joy, be with them ever Pain and Sorrow touch them never. All of these, the heartfelt wishes Of ltheir friends, the Tribe of Freshmen. 111 -ALICE HALL A Diary of Long Ago It was a dismal day in February, l925. The howling wind and leaden skies had anylthing but an encouraging effect upon the spirits of my sixteen-year old niece, who was convalescing from a severe attack of pneumonia. I had been vainly trying to amuse her when suddenly a new plan struck me. "Dorothy," I cried, "I have a brilliant idea. just have patience a moment and I'll be back immediately." Hastily quitting the room, I climbed the stairs to the attic, where among my numerous relics, I found what I sought, a. little black mtrunk. I unlocked it quickly, removed a little brown book, and hurried back to Dorothy. "Here we are, my dear," I cried, "a little diary that I kept one winter all' Milwaukee-Downer. It's the year l9l0, which I have called "The Winter of Wind and Weather." I'll read some parts to show you that there have been days worse than this one." january 5. Terrific snowstorm, all trains delayed. All who braved the storm and those who did not over-sleep at the Plankington I-louse, showed up. After various experiences, not the least of which was a dive into a snow drift, I managed to appear at school. The storm raged all day and it was anything but a warm welcome back. However, such is life. January 6. Twelve below zero served with long car waits is never a-n agreeable menu and today was no exception. For once, I was really anxious to get to school. Walking up Downer Avenue car tracks was ex- cellent this morning and many indulged in it. January 13. Well, talk about your cheerful snowstorms! This morning I waited only forty minutes for a car, which stopped three times to dig the various switches out of the snow. On these days, one almost wishes one were a boarder, but then that feeling doesn't last long. january I4. Well, today was the last straw. The city girls were conspicuous by their absence, and no wonder. Three feet of snow, pro- fusely scattered over the land-scape of Milwaukee, is not greatly conducive to a large attendance. The cars ran only to Folsom Place and we ran OJ the rest of the way. However, -no one complained. "Well, Dorothy, that seems to be about all the weather recorded for January, but I've no doubt there was some more. I'll read more some other time for hark, there is the tea bell." -OLGA SCHUETTE. 112 Ode to '13 Life is short, and time is Heeting, Yet a B. A. is our goalg As we Freshmen climb the ladder- Aim to beautify our soul. "lVlath." is long, and joy is father, Farther off from 'clay to day: As we see our stock of logic- Nearing zero every way. Oh! thou x, thou most elusive, Frantic'lly we chase and search: Till our cosine and our tangents Over one another lurch. One year, makes a lot of difference, One can't help but notice thatg As in dignified procession- Do we hunt "ye famous hat." Now the upper classman pass us, Covers are their smiles of mirth: For the pride of half-green Freshmen ls the flower of the earth. Years ago it seems, at High School, We did many a foolish thingg But the ages since have taught us- What the cares of Freshmen bring. -M. BURKE 113 Dark Secrets of McLaren Hall As Revealed by a Woman Detective. CA Fable., As the only woman detective in Milwaukee, I have been called to help unravel many puzzling cases in which women only are concerned. Perhaps one of the most unique of my experiences occured at Milwaukee- Downer college in the early spring of l9IO. My telephone rang one afternoon and a serious voice asked me to come to lVlcl..aren I-lall at once, on a matter of utmost importance. I answered the summons as quickly as I could and upon my arrival was ushered into a very comfortable and peaceful lookng parlor, where the matron greeted me, and stated the situation. , Briefly it was this. Two girls, Seniors, had, during the past week, lost articles of value. Thesis, which were nearly completed and far more precious than gold to their owners. The rooms from which these documents had been taken were on the second and third floors respectively of the building and unacessible it seemed from without. The natural conclusion then was that the thief or thieves were well acquaimted with the location of the rooms and the where- abouts of the papers and had entered from the inside. As was natural, the owners of the thesis' were prostrated with grief, for to lose thait which they had thought and labored over for years, just at the moment when it neared completion, and when glory and honor seemed theirs, was a blow few mortal beings could withstand! The thesis had been carefully guarded too! They had been kept under the beds of the owners, in iron boxes which were securely locked, the keys of which were always worn on golden chains about the necks of each posessor of the cap and gown. Nothing else in the rooms had been touched. The boxes remained, the locks were unbroken, but the thesis were gone. All suspicion had been removed from the students and servants by a method known as the "confessional"-by which each girl had to swear solemnly fupon paperb that she knew nothing about, or relating in any way to the missing valuables. The case evidently was a hard one, and after consulting with those in authority, I decided to stay at the hall all the time, both because I would then be in a position to see and hear everything that occurred, and because I was obliged to leave for Cleveland the following week and could give no more time to the case until after I came back, which would be a month later. In order nclt to arouse suspicion, I decided to serve in the capacity of maid, and accordingly presented myself the next morning in cap and apron, to all appearances a very "green" new servant. I spenlt the day in looking over the grounds and buildings and when night came I had to admit I was still as much in the dark as before. Dur- ing the afternoon, however, I had seen numerous packages and boxes 114 smuggled in a very suspicious manner into one of the second floor rooms and realizing that I must trace each suspicious action to its source, I had tried to discover just what it meant. On one pretext or another, I had entered the room at various times during the day, but I always found some one there busily studying whom I dared not disturb. It was after the last wink that night, when I was prowling around looking for burglars, that I detected a faint light under the door of that same room. Not hesitating a moment I opened the door. There sateightor ten pajamaed, and kimonaed girls on dresser beds, and tables, eating pies cheese cakes, and pickles! The floor was strewn with papers and boxes of other i-ndigestibles. For one light was off, and I retreated, glad not to be called upon to account for my intrusion. Later, I found out that it was just another of Fannie Flowers' spreads. I started out again at midnight looking for any clue that might aid me. As I walked quietly down the hall of first Hoor, my eye trained to notice every unusual sight, caught a peculiar gleam over one of the transoms. Softly I opened the door. The room was unoccupied, the bed untouched, but a faint light glimmered beneath the closet door. I made my way thither stealthily and peeked through the keyhole. There, curled up on a trunk surrounded by innumerable books, sat Ella Wood studying! Plainly strange lights did not necessarily mean dark lanterns. I made my way to my room in the basement and sank upon my bed, weary, but not discouraged. Before I slept, I determined to make another survey of the hall and started out. When I reached the kitchen door, I saw, to my amazement, two white gowned figures, their hands full of bananas, making their way steathily and quickly toward the stairs. The next morning as I was helping in the work, I asked one of my acquain- tances if any of the girls ever walked in their sleep. "Why yes," she answ-ered. I met Helen Stoppenbach just the other night walking in her sleep, she had her hands full of bananas too, and she says she just hates them. She says she was dreaming that she was hiding them so we never could have them for breakfast again!" Thursday passed without any unusual proceedings. On Friday even- ing nearly all the occupants of the hal 1 left to attend the theatre and I con- sidered this a most favorable chance to continue my plan of campaign, un- observed. I began with the rooms at the further end of third Hoor mak- ing entries in my note book as the situation seemed to warrant. In one of the rooms w-ere many chairs arranged in rows of three or four, in front of which was a table covered with a few books and candles. I could not understand just what this meant until I read the placard on the door--- RELIGIOUS REVIVAL M. COI'I'li'ng ...... Pastgr 325350115 ..... Holmes Sisters COME ONE-COME ALL ADMISSION FREE -115 Buried in my thoughts, I passed down the stairs to second floor and opened the door of one of the central rooms. Around a table sat four girls playing cards. So engrossed were they in their game that ithey did not hear mevand I closed the door softly. As I waited a moment out side the door to make sure that I had not disturbed them, I heard one girl say "It's getting awfully noisy around this place. I'll have to be giving some slips. It's about time someone was campused anyway." I didn't understand exactly what was meant, but my heart pitied the poor victims! As I stood there my thoughts were arrested by a strange sound. Unmistakably, it was a hammering or knocking or pounding of some sort. Maybe someone was tampering with the locks of one of the precious boxes. Excited, I made my way down the hall from whence the sound came, and boldly opened the door. There sat Margaret Davison cracking hickory nuts, and keeping time to each measured stroke of the hammer, was a girl in huge tan shoes clogging. I realized the situation at a glance and interrupted her "Bravo Muggs-do it some more"-with "Miss Rahr is wanted at the phone." "Two doors to your left," she said, "anyway she isn't here tonight-go on Muggsln-with a "thank you" I vanished. Late that night, a telegram came demanding my presence in Cleveland the next day and so, without having gained a clue, I was obliged to leave. Should there be no further developments on my return, I was to take up 'the case again. Three weeks later I returned to Milwaukee, and found this message awaiting me at my office. "I am glad to acquaint you with the fact that the Thesis have been found. The girls had mislaid them. They beca-me mixed with some of their lrosseau and were put away in their closet. However, we have had so much trouble about this and the girls have suffered so much mentally and physically worrying, ,that we have decided to abolish the compulsory writing of thesis hereafter and make it elective work. "A most excellent plan," was my only comment. --Louisa TERRY TICKNOR. ,TTS IL., , ,, Fit' 1tZQ:M3frQ-fI55i':f:A, 116 Milwaukee-Downer Seminary December I2- First floor completed. December l6- Miss Sabin talked with architect and secured more windows. January 8- Work suspended. january I 5- Work resumed. February 3- Seconcl Hoor started on dormitory. February 9- Exterior second Hoor main building completed. Larger force of men. February 25- Second floor of east wing complelted. March 4- Roof commenced on east wing. Third floor of dormitory commenced. March I2- Roof of main building commenced. The progress indicated in the preceding notes has meant more than the mere erection of a building. As the structures pass the different stages of progression and arrive at thalt of completion, a great crisis in the history of Milwaukee-Downier College is reached. This cherished name is now to be applied to the college department only and the preparatory is to be distinguished by the naime of Milwaukee-Downer Seminary. This long desired and well planned change has thus been accomplished. It is to mean more than the mere change of residence of some of the students: it is to benefit both college and seminary in making 'each one more nearly the institution its name represents. I-n this way the seminary will be a seminary in the full sense of the word, wi-th its own recitation halls, its own in- 117 structors, its dormitories, wilth its separate functions and social life, all of which are to be supervised by a dean. The trustees and president of the college will also act for the seminary, directing and controlling its policy. The college, on the other hand, is to occupy the three dormitories, one of which has been used by the seminary heretofore. This will lead to an increase in the number of attendants, which will enable the carrying out of plans and suggestions impossible with smaller numbers. The whole atmos- phere will be more distinctly that of a college, including all that the word implies. It will delight in its own class rooms, professors an-d social affairs, as will the seminary in its. And not least among its new pleasures will be that of the fifty minute periods, which are to replace the forty minute ones now in use. The style of architecture of the new seminary buildings corresponds with that of the college buildings. A Norman Tower closely resembl- ing the one on Merrill Hall is to be located directly opposite it. The re- sullting sight will thus be far more impressive and magnificient, than the one enjoyed at present. For the college, as beautiful and dignified as ever, with its splendid ivy-colored buildings and attractive grounds, will still be here to welcome us upon our return. To this will be added the seminary, its companion in color, architecture and landscape gardening. Thus the two departments, resembling each other so closely, will unite to attain a common end, and assist each other in gaini-ng the highest good through the wisest and best methods.

Down the hall comes Helen Stoppenbach singing with "unsquechable" vim. "How dear to my heart are those short forty minutes, When these lengthy periods recall them to view." "Right you are, 'Stoppyf " comes a chorus from the stairway, "but what's the matter now?" "The matter," says I-Ielen, assuming a tragic attirtude, "is that in the last ten minutes I got my Hrst zero. Last year the bell would have saved the clay." . Anna Jerrard, her arms full of music. has stopped to listen to this tale of woe, and now pipes up in a voice quite loud enough to be heard. "Yes, and I've just come from a music lesson on the whole of one of Bach's "Fugues" besides four pages in Clementi. You see, I expected to have only two practice periods now, but Miss McPheters"-at this point Esther Farrand limps painfully by and replies to the anxious inquiries of "Are you hurt Stern-with a shake of the head, "No, but fifty minutes of gym. work is too much even for me." "Fifty minutes," says Lucie Holmes, tenderly stroking her finger as she joins the group. "Well, I've been sewing one hundred and fifty minutes-those three periods are awful." ' And just in time to hear this, Verle resplendent in cap and gown and newly acquired dignity swoops down upon the sympathetic group-"Now girls. don't grumble," she says, "our standard must be as high as other col- leges, you know, and besides, we are getting much more for our money."

And her sense of humor was deeply stirred Alt these jokes, so witty in phrase and word. Then an awful thought disturbed her glee. "Wha't will the faculty say?" cried she. For with lengthy words they had sharply defined That the jokes must not sting or be unkind. To this strict injunction she meekly complied, As she put all the jokes with a point to one side. The poor little editor almost cried, As down in the basket she let them slide. Then she turned to the jokes that did remain, Which were so woefully, woefully tame. On the following pages you will lind Those jokes so kind: but yet so kind. 123 Roll Call of the Cumtux Board R. Allen-"It's perfectly weird." Miss Belcher-"Why?" M. Burke-"Oh, you Trigf' M.

"By thy angered brow and glittering eye, Now wherefore stopps't thou me?" "The parlor doors are open wide, The F ourmh Years are within. They all do fret, the feast is set, But where's the merry din." She held her with an iron hand. "We are so stung!" quoth she. "Get outl l know it, Fourth Year snob, l hope you'll always bel" They ate the food, she n'e'er would eat And frowned and frowned anew, While she did grin at them within, And down the hall she flew. Alone, alone, all, all alone, Alone at that aw'ful tea, And only one soul took pity on That class in agony. It was a third year special bold, Through the door she came, As though they'd seen a ghost, they looked Upon her quaking frame. Believe me, worthy Fourth Years! You made a great mistake. Why looked you so upon the maid That she her flight did take? Farewell, farewell, but this I tell To thee, thou Fourth Year class. She doeth well who acteth well Yow, and every other lass. 125 - T vii , J' .-'illlym f.. 1 , ..."s:r'wrQ!gl X ' ffl' r oi'-7 'qlqvxf' 1 lf , I fl' 4, l '14 I Ui Si sl! t lv x t 3-, ' X .4,..1.-1- M. D. C. Coiffures There was a young lady named Holmes, Whose figure was mostly all bones, She really looked queer With her hair so severe, It even was known to cause groans. There is a young lady named Hyde, Who claim that she never has lied, And yet she has said That the curls on her head Are really, in truth, bonafide. There was a bright Senior, J. K., Who wore her hair a new way, It is false they all cried, When those braids they espied, But they were quite wrong, we can say. There was a young girl named Verle, Who wanted her hair to curl, So one night went to bed, With ten knobs on her head, But she slept not a wink, poor girl. She arose the next morning with Glee, Her curls most impatient to see, Her sorrows were great For her hair was still straight, What more unkind fate could there be. I 4 " '02 ' "ZH 5-UL T. ' x . . .

Yes indeed, I should love to take you through if you'd like to go. Right this way--this is the parlor. O! pardon me Gertrude, I didn't know you had a caller. Now here-Did that startle you? I'm so sorry, it was only Louise tumbling clown stairs, we're used to it. Hush! this is l'larriet's room! That group of queer dirty looking objects? That's a bunch of fresh- men who've bee-n hunting the hat. Good Gracious! what was that! Another mouse Sibyl? How funny, did you really think there had been an accident because all that crowd was standing around? Why, that's just Mary with the mail. And this is lthe bulletin board-O! O! Hazel Welch campused again: will that child never learn to behave herself! Over in that corner the members of the Limpus club are holding a meeting, Madaleine and Miriam are its founders. We can go right up these back stairs to the second floor. Oh! pardon me Sadie, I hope you didn't hurt yourself--yes, Miss Shorey is in her room, butt there are no plays approved. That line of girls? Oh, they're in front of the secretary's door, waiting to present their excuses to stay home from church to-morrow. Dear me, Mags cleaning again-just one moment please, and I'Il move things so you can get through. Yes, it is pretty noisy at this end- it all comes from l24 too-I expect Lulu is dressed up as a monkey again. That girl you saw in the cloor-way is Gena, trying a new kind of cold cream on her nose to make it grow! I beg your pardon? You clidn't know men were allowed here? I don't understand-O! Ol don't mind my laughing please, tha1t's only a dummy! No, this isn't a store-room. Vera and Ham are having a sale: they find it a lot more convenient to sell their clothes, so they wont have so many to move O! yes, they move usually about once a week. Vlfhat can be happening up here?-I'll knock and see. Look here! There's an old fashioned dance in progress-that girl standing on the bed Iiddling for dear life is Clairie-isn't it fun? Now, shall we go up to third floor? Oh! Nilla, get into your room -can't you see that company is coming? No, no, don't get excited, that sobbing doesn't mean that anyone is hurt-it's only Elsket having another home-sick spell. This is the Poston-Fish acquariumg the house-committee often drops them a line. And this room with the cross bones and "busy" sign is Miriam's,-she's trying to write some grinds for the Cumtux so we must not disturb her. And now that you've seen everything here, would you like to go through the other halls? You wont find any of them as quieut and restful as lvhnslvn though. -M. ROTHSCHILD. 11:5 6 Further Adventures of Mary had a turbanette. Of wire it was made. i She placed it on her head one day, And on it gently laid Her dearly cherished Christmas gift- A Hfteen-dollar braid. And then to College, Mary went. A cold and wintry day. The bell had rung, and so she ran Along the icy way. And now the sad part of this tale Is just about to come. 1 m sure you'll weep, when you have read What that hard ice has done. When Mary turned toward Merrill Hall, She took an awful, awful fall. The ice came up, and struck her head. Poor child! Her friends all thought her The nurse then came. I hear her yet Say, "Compound fractured turbanette.' And so it was. The only harm Was ruined mop, and injured arm. There is a moral now to tell, Let us suppose that when she fell She had no mop to break her fall- What would have happened? That's'n You "Anti-Moppersf' please beware. In slippery weather, do take care And if you give this style abuse, Remember lurbans have their use. 136 Mary dead! ot all. A Burglar Scare Miss Kennedy had returned a little earlier than she was expected. after the Christmas vacation, but as it was quite late before she reached the College, she did not think it necessary to notify Miss Shorey. She had not been in her room more than half an hour when she heard a loud knock at her door. V "Come," she said, bu-t no one appeared. Another knock was followed by a stern voice. "Tell us who wou are in there, at once!" Greatly surprised, and somewhat frightened, Miss Kennedy opened her door. There before her stood Miss Dickerson, in a most dehant attitude, holding a baseball bar, while just behind her was Miss Shorey, armed with an umbrella. Slowly they dropped their weapons, and Miss Shorey exclaimed- "Why,-why I thought you weren't coming until to-morrow-and I heard noises and-." -M. J. P., 'l3.

If Stoppie never fell down stairs, And Emmagene ever hurried, If Fanny Flower had no cares, Now wouldn't we be Hurried? If Lulu Kauffman lost her bow, And Alesa lost her smile, If Mertie lost her tooth-brush, Now would life be worth while?
