The New Girls ' Dormitory. dT OR SEVERAL years the authorities have very much fUi felt the need for a girls ' dormilory in Monmouth but it 4 was not until two years ago, when the Senate instructed the trustees to initiate a building campaign, that the mat- ter was taken up in earnest. The wisdom of the authorities was that the very latest type structure, tire-proof, and equipped with the most modern conveniences, was the only kind of a building worth while. To build such a building it was estimated that if one-half of the needed sum I $40,000) could be raised that the erection of the building could be started with perfect safety. Monmouth ' s many friends willingly responded to the opportunity for assistance and by March 1, 1913, more than $40,000 had been subscribed. . rchitect D. E. Waid of New York City had completed the plans and bids on the construction work were called for. The con- tract for building was accordingly let to -Vpsey Fusch, and (he plumbing to McCullough Harilware Implement Co. Ground was broken -March SI, as soon as the weather permitted and the build- ing is now under way. The building is being erected on the northeast corner of the campus, facing Ninth street It will be very complete and of fire- proof construction throughout. It will be 45x163 feet, three stories in height, with a basement and sub-basement under the entire build- ing. A large dining room, accommodating 1-50 persons, kitchen, laundry, bakery and store rooms, as well as quarters for additional help, will be found in the basement. There will be in the building forty double rooms on the main floors. In addition to these there will be a hospital room, a suite for the dean, a suite tor the matron, a large reception hall, a sitting room and a chafing dish room. The third floor has on it a large gymnasium for the girls. Every room will be fitted for hot and cold water. There will be two large closets in each room, two bath-rooms on each floor and electric lights throughout. The dormitory is but another step forward in Monmouth ' s rai)id progress. It will be a new center for student life. It will furnish an ideal home for the girls. The dining room will be the family table of the school — the eating quarters of both boys and girls. The reception hall and the sitting room will be an attractivt meeting place for young men and women friends. The building will put a finishing touch on the beauty and attractiveness of our campus. If present plans obtain, it will be ready for occupancy early in the year 11114. ? 1 The May Party, 1912. (3 X E OF THE prettiest events of the college year is the -May Party which is held on the caminis in the latter part of May. All of the girls in the three lower classes take part in the drills. Many weeks are spent in preparation for this event and every effort is put forth to make it a success. The May Party of 1912 was held on the twenty-fourth of May on the campus, east of the Auditorium. Here a throne had been built and harmoniously decorated with white bunting and green boughs. A large space was fenced off in reserve for the drills and the guests — the faculty, the boys of the school and the Senior girls. Miss Helen McCorkle had been selected by the men of the college through a ballot taken in (he morning, to become Queen ot May. She was attended by the .Maid of Honor. iMiss Lois Barnes, and four small girls, .Martha Clendenin, Kachel Marshall, Virginia St. Clair and .Mary Burnett. ■ The procession formed at the Carnegie Library Building and wound its way through the campus to the scene of the fete. The drill girls marched first and knelt in two long rows between which the queen-elect and her attendants marched to the throne. Here they were greeted by a May-song by the Girls ' Chorus and Miss McCorkle was crowned Queen of the May by the Maid of Honor. Then came the scarf dance, a very graceful and attractive dance, followed by two very unique and picturesque drills, the Hun- garian Drill, and the .Japanese I ' mbrella drill. The last and most looked for exhibition was the Maypole dance, an old time dance with many new and beautiful variations. The May Fete is one of the most beautiful ot the traditions of the school and each year marks a step toward making it a more attractive, beautiful and permanent institution. P A C. K T E N Philo Annual Banquet. r HE PHILO Annual Banquet was held in the Colonial I 1 Hotel banquet room Wednesday evening, October IB, 1912, in honor of the new men. The guests were received in the hotel reception parlors and here frappe was served from a cleverly arranged autumn booth. After a short musical program the guests proceeded to the banquet room where they found tables beautifully decorated in the society colors. After a bountiful ban- quet Ralph D. Kyle of the class of 1 DOS was introduced as toastmaster and showed himself an able leader in after-dinner wit. MENU. Tomato Cream. Olives. Celery. Blanched .Mmonds. Roast Young Turkey.

AN ECCRITEAN Reunion was held in connection with the Eccritean Peanut Banquet this year, which was ceie- hrated E iday evening, November the first, in the banquet room of Wallace Hall. About four hundred invitations were sent out to the alumni of the society, and altho there were but a few who were able to come, many sent their regrets and assured the members that they would be there in spirit if not in person. The hall was decorated in red, white and blue streamers in- tertwined and mingled with the leaves of the autmun oak. Presi- dent Kritzer acted as toastmaster and caused much mirth by his witty remarks. Hon. T. H. Gault, ' 70, State Commander of the Illi- no isG. A. R., responded to the toast to the Old Eccriteans.

AT X O O N on February 22 the Senior class assembled in the gymnasium for Senior Day. This is the first time in the year when the Senior class assembles as dignified Sen- iors. The tables were decorated with miniature ships. Around the ships were icebergs which lowered the atmosphere of the room considerably. Following the delicious banquet served by Eliza Smith, was a toatst program carrying out the idea of the wreck of the Titanic: Pilot Chauncey SherricU Voyage . . l ois Barnes Titanic John Kritzer Band Master Dorothy Austin Officers Maude Megchelsen Passengers lim Curry Band • Gertrude Fletcher Iceberg Marguerite Rhodes Wreck Kdna Mumford T H K .JUNIOR Spread held in the assembly room of the I 1 Auditorium on the twentieth of February- in coramemora- tion of the FYeshman Banquet of two years ago, and inci- dentally in honor o£ the Father of His Country, could hardly be termed a banquet, altho the quality of the food was prob- ably superior to the usual banquet, as the girls had prepared the repast with their own hands. The tables were bountifully laden with sandwiches, salad, chips, pickles, cakes, ice cream, coffee and candies. The following is their impromptu toast program: " REFLECTIONS.

The occasion marked the second departure from the ancient customs. Last year the day passed by under the ban ot enforced peace. This year the traditional February twenty-second gave way to February twentieth. The event was in the nature of a baseball game. Much mirth and laughter was occasioned both by the rooters and the clever plays ot the team. After the feast of good things had been enjoyed the following unique toast program was given: Umpire David McMichael Diamond — M.

The hall was tastily deco- rated in the class colors, black and red: American Beauty roses were at every place. The banquet was of excellent quality, and the toast program was very clever.

Y. M. C. A. Banquet. L PON T HE evening of December the eleventh one of the Jrl most enjoyable functions of the year was held. The occa- i sion was the annual reception given in honor of the stu- dents by the faculty. Practically the whole student body was present. The program consisted of several readings by Miss Helen McClanahan, and vocal numbers by .Miss Bessie Lloyd, and a mixed college quartette. A unique feature of the reception was the division of the guests into supper groups. This was done by requiring each person to sing a phrase of a well known melody. Those who had bars from the same piece formed separate groups. The reception has been looked back upon with a good deal ot pleasure by the students. Y. M. and Y. W. Joint Reception. The Y. . I. and Y. W. followed tluir annual cusloin of giving an Informal reception to the new students on the first Saturday night of the school year in the Banquet room of Wallace Hall. Sev- eral students were put thru the mill and received their diplomas. There were music and games; light refreshments were served and each student started aright on the year with a handful of kisses. (§ N THE evening of March 1, 1913, a banquet was given by the men of the school in honor of Dr. W. E. McCulloch of Pittsburgh, who was closing a series of meetings here and Rev. G. C. Vincent, who was soon to leave the city. .An excellent repast was enjoyed and then Jlr. Vincent made a de- lightfully entertaining speech. Dr. McCulloch gave a magnificent cutting from his lecture on Lincoln, which was very much enjoyed. The Lecture Course. . s Monmouth College luid no lecture course, four of the members of the Senior class, John Kritzer, John McBane, Fred Stevens and Robert McBride, in company with Prof. Davis, took up a lecture course on their own initiative and secured a fine list of speakers. Lincoln McConnell, J. Jlerrit Driver, Senator FranK C Cannon, William Cady and Everett Kemp need but be mentioned to indicate the quality of the course, - mong such a list of speakers it would be didlcult to select the best, but Everett Kemp is perhaps the most worthy of mention, for he certainly won the Jlonmouth audience with his recital, " The Music Master. " Musical Events. The Artist Course. Other Musical Events. « »r HIS YEAR ilonmouth has att ' orded to its music lovers 1 and those who wish to cultivate a taste for the best music, ample opportunity to hear some of the excellent talent of the country. Prof. T. Merrill Austin, the director of the Monmouth College Conservatory, was indeed fortunate In procuring for the first num- ber of the series of Artist Recitals Silvio Scionti, the Italian pian- ist. His work was marked by its brilliancy and the enthusiasm with which he entered into it and bis technique was remarkable. Gustaf Holmquist, the Swedish baritone, appeared on the second recital. He pleased his audience particularly with his inter- pretation of the Swedish folk songs. The Pasmore Trio gave a most enjoyable ensemble concert. The trio are said to stand alone in the perfection of their ensemble work. The last number on the course was very successful. Miss Lamb as pianist displayed brilliant technical ability, versatility and a fine interpretation of her art. Dorothea North has a beauti- ful voice of great flexibility and dramatic power. The faculty recital rendered during the first of the year by Miss Thomas, piano, Miss Finley, violin, and Mr. H. Wylie Stewart, tenor, showed that Monmouth College might well be proud of her Conservatory Faculty. The Choral Society has given two excellent entertainments. At the winter concert, besides a miscellaneous program, the chorus sang Gades ' beautiful .work, " The Erl King ' s Daughter. " For the May Festival, Mrs. Mabel Sharp Herdien took the leading role in Mendelssohn ' s " Lobgesang. " In the afternoon the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, assisted by a group of prominent soloists, gave a grand concert. Monmouth College also appreciates her orchestra, which, under the enthusiastic leadership of .Miss Blnley, has done splen- did work. The annual concert was greatly enjoyed. The Glee Club is almost a new organization. The " Home Coming " ended its second season of successful work. The program was characterized by some of the most bea utiful as well as some of the most ludicrous songs and ballads. 1862 1912 Fiftieth Anniversary of the Second United Presbyterian Church of Monmouth, Celebrated October 20-27, 1912 The celebration of a lialt-century ' s work by the Second United Presbyterian Church began with Communion Service on Sabbath, October 20. Wed- nesday evening was given over to an historical re- view of the Church in its various departments. On Friday evening a sumptuous Fellowship Dinner was spread in the Banquet Room of Wallace Hall, at which about four hundred were present. A resume of the Church ' s history, the outline of its present status and influence, and its prospect for the future were ably handled in the Toast Program. On Sab- bath, the 27th, a fitting close to the week ' s program was reached in the two anniversary sermons preach- ed by Rev. T. C. Pollock, D. D., of Philadelphia, a former pastor. Six able leaders comprise the list of those who have ministered to this congregation: Rev. Alexander Young, D. D., 18U2-1871. David A. Wallace, D. D., 18«2-18G8. I Co- Pastors. D. iM. Ure, D. D., 1S72-1S74. W. T. Campbell, I). D., 187. " .-19(ll. Rev. Thomas C. Pollock, D. D., liioi-lllll. Rev. George C. Vincent, 1911-l!n:i. With full consent of the parent organization, the First Church, the Second Cliurch was organized October 2. ' , 1862, with a Rev. Rev. Rev. charter membership of twenty-one. During its fifty T| years of activity, the Second Church has received i,370 persons into its membership, the present mem- bership being 409. The congregation worshipped at first in the chapel of .Monmouth College, but in 1867 a frame building was erected, which was replaced in 1S79 by the present building. This is a red brick structure of two stories, with Sabbath School room on the first floor, and auditorium above. The Women ' s and Young Ladies ' Missionary Societies, the Young People ' s Work and the Sabbath I School represent phases of church activity. The Second Church is represented on the foreign field by Rev. ,1. W. Ballantyne. as " foreign pastor " in India. Second Church likewise extends her influ- ence through t ' lie ( ' (Hcient work being done by her j Uaushter Church, the Ninth .- venue Congregation of Monmouth. Many, both of students and of alumai will cherish ibe memory of the Second Church as their church- home durlug college days. The Church, too, receives inspiration from the fellowship and enthusiasm of student workers. " The Pole Scrap. " September 23, 1912. Freshmen Defeat Sophomores in Three Minutes.

At tl:ll the Freshman forces were charging the defensive Sophomores clustered around the pole and at 6:15 the Freshman colors were floating at the top of the pole, while the Sophomore colors were fluttering down. The Sophomores were good scrappers but they were completely outnumbered and it was only an occa- sional outburst on the part of the Stewart brothers that made things interesting till time was called at 7:11. 1 ' .

DALES BUCHANAN. d DALES BUCHANAN, Monmouth ' s representative mI in tlie contest of tlie Illinois Intercollegiate Oratorical 4 J Association, held at Eureka November 8, 1912, was win- ner of a hard fought battle of oratorical skill. The Knox representative received second honors. Mr. Buchanan is but a Sophomore, but his great amount of natural ability, coupled with a very great talent for hard work, gave him an unquestioned suprem- acy, both in Thot and Composition and in Delivery. As winner of the state contest he was entitled to submit his oration in the inter- .state contest, which he accordingly did. His oration, " The Passing of Political Bias,. ' has been selected as one of the seven best by the judges of thot and composition in the inter-state contest and he g )es to combat representatives from Ohio, Nebraska, -Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin at Wooster, Ohio, May 16th. Mon- mouth expects him to do her great honor in this contest. We give below Mr. Buchanan ' s oration as given in the interstate contest. The Passing of Political Bias. ■1 The history of mankind is a story of human bias. Men nat- urally take sides upon local issues. As naturally, their successors cling to those organizations long after the questions that have called them into existence have passed away. In the early fifties, the Republican party was born of the conflict between slavery and freedom. For many years the Democratic and Whig parties had held sway, and not until the right of human liberty was brought before the minds of men did any break away from former party affiliations. So well established had the old parties become, and so strongly entrenched in the minds of men, that a revolution of po- litical thought was necessary to effect a change. A similar situation confronts the American people today. Great political, social, economic, and moral principles are at stake. Unrest throbs in the breast of the body politic. And well it may! The issues of a half century ago were settled at Appomattox. Since that time the rank and file of our electorate have voted with one party or the other mainly because they were followers or sons or followers of Davis or of Lincoln. It was not the tariff, it was not the " ratio of 16 to 1, " it was not imperialism that caused people to align themselves with the Democratic or the Republican party. It was rather inherited prejudice, prejudice acquired in the heat of conflict, amid the roar of cannon and tlie groans of tlie dying. Men were moved by political bias rather than by the dictates of inde- pendent judgment. Political bias, however, is passing. The recent campaign demonstrates this fact. The two old parties are shifting their plat- forms to install new principles. A new party has arisen, with able and enthusiastic men as its leaders. Yet such men as Ambassador James Bryce say that such a breaking away from old party ties is the result, not of a revolutionary, but of an entirely evolution;iry process. The chief practical issues which once divided the two great political parties in America have been settled. As scon as a I arty has gained its general point, each member becomes intent upon his individul interest, and the citizen, freed from his former party prejudice, seeks to serve his country in a better way. In his inaugural address President Wilson said: " This is the high enter- prise of the new day; to lift everything that concerns our life as a nation to the light that shines from the hearth-fire of every man ' s conscience and vision of the right. The feelings with which we face this new age of right and opportunity sweep across our heart- strings like some air out of God ' s own presence, where justice and mercy are reconciled and the judge and the brother are one. " The present political situation makes it plainly evident that prejudice is passing. Differences of opinion on racial and govern- mental questions can now be settled in other ways than by carnal warfare. The leading nations of the world now settle their disputes by international conciliation. The tactions in political strife today contend in more friendly, yet no less serious, combat than formerly. Men no longer hold their rights of conscience by the arbitrament of the sword. The cruel wars of Mahomet, the vengeful persecution of the Puritans in England, the story of the Spanish .Armada and the carnage that raged at the birth of the Dutch Republic — all these are grim reminders of devotion once paid to local prejudice. Certain well-defined present-day forces are at work to has- ten the passing of political bias. Of these, one of the most impor- tant is that of education. Individual efficiency and the citizen ' s service to the state is the end and aim of our public school system. If we are true to these aims, education will become a tremendous force In bringing political bias to a speedy end. The education ot which we speak rests also upon other means. Practical exper- ience, afforded by modern business methods, fits a man for social duty. Contact ot men with men in the rapidly multiplying activi- ties of life, public and private discussions of affairs of state, lead men to think, to question and to understand. Travel and mingling with men of other nations, largely modern accomplishments, afford a liberal education. 0 ir newspapers are becoming representative. Tliey are giving men broad visions of our country ' s needs and op- portunities. An intelligent use of these agencies will tend to broaden our education and to raise the standard of American citi- zenship. Another important factor in political independence is the application of the ethics of Christ to the business ot life. This re- sults in making men more self-reliant and less subservient o political organizations. Men are taught that they are free. Men, too. are given to understand that, made as they are in the image of the Eternal, they have somewhat of divinity in their makeup and are called upon to assert their individuality. Out of this comes a sympathy as broad as human need. If all men are created free, there must be no serfs among the toiling millions; and no man, because of power or wealth or place or heritage, can become dic- tator to his fellowmen. Political parties, therefore, lose their authority and become as clay in the hands of the potter. When they have accomplished their purjiose, they must yield to others better fitted to answer the demands of the hour. The time, indeed, is fast approaching when political parties will exist only for the realization of great principles. Like the scaffolds of immense struc- tures, they will be torn down when the buildings, erected and fin- ished, stand as monuments to the skill of the architects and builders. Let not the optimist think, however, that because of these great forces at work the race will easily go to the swift and the battle to the strong. We wrestle not against flesh and blood alone, but against powers whose influence tends to deepen and to strengthen political bias in the minds of men. One of the strongest of these retentive forces is the " spoils system, " which places before men of every rank in political life a tempting reward for party service. Out of this pernicious system has been born a class of professional politicians, and in later times party bosses. These flourish because the system of patronage en- ables them to form the rank and file of the party into compact organizations, while still seeking their own aggrandizement. In short these spoilsmen have thrown out of gear the mechanism of politics. Another force, whose influence is felt in American politics, is re ' erence for old and outgrow n ideals — the chain which has bound China to her hitherto unprogressive policy. It has so molded legislation and transfused the popular mind in America as to make difficult escape from its blighting influence. Here is a man who has ahvays voted the ticket of a certain party. Ask him why, and he will answer: " It is my ideal. It was my father ' s party. It was born the year in which he w as born, and during his life-time and mine it has grown to its present power. We have fought; we have lost and we have won; we have grown old together, and I would sooner part company with my name or fortune than with my polit- ical party. " What use is there to talk to such a man of present-day in- fluences and of the crying need of the times? He feels no emotion, he hears no warning, he sees no vision. His trust is in his party; not for wiiat it is, but for what it has been. To him, its " mountain standeth strong. " The trumpet call today is for service. As the movement for more direct control by the people advances, so does the responsi- bility of every citizen increase. The direct election of United States senators, the initiative and referendum, the recall, the presidential preference primary, are all movements indicative of the growing democratic spirit of our country. Some ot these have not yet been sufficiently tried to insure success in practice. But whether or not these suggested changes are made, at all events the electorate will be charged with new responsibility. Chief Justice Winslow of Wis- consin has said: " A pure democracy cannot exist if its electorate be either ignorant or corrupt. If the fountain head be poisoned, the water of the stream cannot he sweet. " Instead of bosses and machines, we must have political prin- ciples. Tt was Webster ' s opinion that when new parties arise, growing out of new issues, old parties must inevitably decline. Though spruug from controversies of lofty merit, they must give •place to others, if the former issues are no longer pending. Is this the case today? The principles of Washington, .Jefferson, and Lincoln; tlie security of the Constitution; the cause of political independence; the rights of labor and of capital; the fair fame of our country — do not all these hang in the balance? Francis Way- land truly said: " Let virtuous men unite on the ground of univer- sal moral principle and the tyranny of party be crushed. " Now is the time tor men of all parties, and for all who have before stood aloof from parties, to accep t this challenge. The day of great op- portunity is at hand! Political leaders we must always have. In a land like ours, continually refilling with voters who need instruction in the prin- ciples of free and independent government, the masses must be guided in the great fields of political thought. Statesmen we must have and the great task is to find them. Our nation is blessed with splendid material for leadership. There are noble men all about us, silently thinking, silently working. Carlyle suggested that to enthrone the ablest men is the true business of all social procedure. Democracy excels other forms of government only ii- so far as it provides effective methods of securing just and prudent leaders. But democratic government cannot succeed unless each citizen fulfills his civic obligation. It has been said truthfully that all peoples have as good governments and as good governors as they demand, and no better. The relation between governors and governed, therefore, is a balanced one: the private citizen has the power in his hands to secure his leader, but the leader can intu- ence the masses for better or for worse. Let us insist, then, upon leaders who will guide us in paths of civic rectitude! Let us de- velop a nation of citizens who will use the power of the ballot to defeat Wrong, to enthrone Right! Though it is true that political bias is passing, yet the hour of its demise lies deep-hidden within the folds of the future. But if we are fully alive to the forces already at work among us, we can hasten the day when political parties will serve from worthier motives and will stand for loftier ideals. Party pla; forms will then no longer be mere verbal expedients. They will wrestle with the dominant problems of the hour; humanity will claim more atten- tion than mere finance; and the standard of prosperity in the na- tion will be the happiness of the multitude rather than the wealth of the few. In the words of the patriot Sumner: ' " A party which renounces its sentiments will itself be renounced. " The watch- wort " of the nation will be, " Patriotism first, party afterward. " Yet our ideals can seldom be entirely embodied in practice. They must be as the stars of the firmament, a very great way oft, else were they not ideals. But as nearer and nearer we approach, brighter and brighter will they shine. The endeavor of our nation should be to elevate to positions of leadership the ablest men avail- able. To secure the ablest men available, to remedy the evils of democracy, we must have more democracy. To exalt the nation, we must exalt the individuals in the nation. To exalt the individ- uals in the nation, and thus to make the most of a true democracy, we must have the unbiased assistance of every citizen. P ACT. F O R T Y Monmouth-William Jewell Debate Team. The second debate of the series between Monmouth ana ■William-Jewell College was held at Liberty, Missouri, Friday nighi, April 4, 1913. George Campbell, .John Kritzer and Glenn McGrew were members of this year ' s team and put up a good strong argu- ment but as they away from home and lacked the great enthusias- tic backing which the William-.Jewell debaters had, they were un- sble to return with the victory. The question was: Resolved: " That the plan of Banking Reform suggested by the National Mone- tary Commission should be adopted by Congress. " Monmouth had the afhrmative, William-Jewell upholding the negative. The judges were A. C. Humphrey, Professor of Public Speaking, Westport High School, Kansas City; Dr. Isador Loeb, Dean Missouri State ITniverslty, Columbia, Missouri, and Dr. Edwin Maxey, Professor in Law School, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska. Sophomore Debate Team. Monmouth ' s Sophomore Debate Team, composed of Ralph White, PVank Stewart and Robert Getty, defealed the Sophomoif team from Iowa Wesleyan in the Monmouth College Auditorium Friday evening, April 18, 1913, This was the first of a series of three debates contracted for between the Sophomore classes of the two institutions. From the first the Monmouth speakers held the upper hand, both in the matter of weight of argument and force of delivery, and easily carried the decision of the judges, Tlie (pies- lion was: Resolved: " That the plan of Banking Reform suggested by the National Monetary Commission should be adopted by Con- gress. " Wesleyan upheld the allirmative, iSlonmouth the negative. The judges who decided two for the negative and one for the affirm- ative were: Prof, S. B. Irish of the English Department of Gales- burg High School, Prof. Powers of William and Vashti College, and Prof. Hart of Galesbiir.s High School. Peace Oratorical. State Preliminary. X In the preliminary to tlie State Contest, lield in the College Auditorium Friday, April 25, 1913, Ralph White was awarded first place by the decision of the judges. Accordingly Mr. Wlilte is privi- leged to represent Monmouth College in the State Contest to be held at Carlinville next November. Mr. White has had a great deal of success in the line of Oratory, both during his High School course and his two years of college. He is a hard worker with a great deal of talent and Monmouth has every reason to expect a victorv thru him in the State Contest, HAKOLU WHITE Monmouth was well represented in the person of Mr. Harold White at the State Peace Oratorical Contest held at Aledo Friday night, April 11, 1913. Mr. White ranked well in thot and composi- tion and had a forceful delivery but he had some very strong com- petition and failed to receive the honors awarded by the judges. km m m Senior Class Play 1912 " Isabelle Orsiiii.

And the keeping of a Promise was tlie Matf most important of the amendments to the Keith Decalogue. iwc still, Blair ' s eyes blazed and his small Keith chin tilted ' dangerously. The culprit swung his brown sandaled feet to and fro with a thud against the bedpost, and drew long wiry hairs from the chair on which he had thrown himself. He be.gan conning over the accumulated grievances of his four week ' s sojourn with Great-aunt Selina Keith. First in order, if not in importance, came the assault and battery upon Aunt Selina ' s cherished pig, for which the small offender served a half day ot enforced seclusion. Then the interesting experiment upon Tabby ' s ninth life, and his artistic decoration of the preacher ' s white leg- horn chickens. And now-, with his chin on bis grimy fists, he scrutinized the despised oilcloth covered waslistand, the granite pitcher, and the bowl, " suitable for a boy, " as Aunt Selina had explained tliat first night. He shivered, as he recalled the dismal March storm, which had greeted his arrival in Bloomfield. He still could see the win- dow pane on which the splattering raindrops had mingled and run down. He could feel the chill ot the sheel s, and the strange loneli- ness of that great four-poster bed. And upon a very moist pillow, without even the sympathy of the Man-in-the-Moon, the lonely boy had at last drifted into that land of Dreams, where Aunt Selina ' s hideous patchwork quilts, and colossal beds, whirled and eddied in terrifying proximity. A sudden shrill voice from the garden, awoke him from his reverie, and sent him hurrying to the high-silled window. Swing- ing on the gate behind the toolhouse, a patch of pink gingham, v hose jiggling flaxen pigtaiils bobbed up and down, chanted, as the Utany: " Blair Ke-ith, Bla-air-air r. " The culprit ' s recently wounded pride, as well as his fear ot llie omnipresent Aunt Selina, lent caution to his answer. " I ' m in the corner bedroom. " ' Come on out. " " I ' ve go t ' stay in till supper time. " Answered Blair truthfully. " Aw, c ' m on. Your Aunt S ' lina went to the Ladies ' Aid Meet in ' with mother, an ' they ne er get home afore six o ' clock. " 1 lie eternal feminine was successful, and the child, whose conscience was becoming more or less dulled under his stern Aunt ' s discipline, pushed the Promise to the darkest corner of his tired lit:le brain, and with a great sigh of relief, swung his sturdy legs over the window ledge, shut his eyes, and landed in a disheveled heap upon Aunt Selina ' s pansy bed. He picked himself up, plunged hands into pockets, and with a swagger obviously assumed, strolled toward the toolhouse. The Pink Gingham hopped down off the gate, and regarded Blair cur- iously. " What ' d you do? " she asked, " I — 1 jus ' don ' t know zackly. ' ceptin ' I ast Aunt S ' line if she ' d hear the Night Wind howl, er if she had any gingerbread dogs er choc ' lut cats in th ' orchard. " The flaxen pigtails bobbed understandingly. " She said little beys shouldn ' t ast questions, an ' ter me to run brins in he kindlin ' wood — " continued Blair digging tiny hol- lows with his stubby brown toe. " It ' s always, ' Blair, bring in the kindlin ' wood. ' er ' Blair, pump the water. ' ' N then I — I went out into the woodlot an ' while I was pickin ' up the wood. I pertended I was doin ' it fer my Uream-Mother, n ' that she was sittin ' right ' side tl ' e tree, sewin ' , an ' hmghiu ' , an ' talkin ' with me jus ' like all Reallv- Diothers do, au ' — an ' all quick — ' fore I knew what had happened, Aunt S ' lina jus ' slammed me into th ' bedroom — quickern Scat! " The Pink Gingham gave a little incredulous gasp of sympathy. " She said I was a lazy, good (er nothin ' boy an ' a disgrace t ' the Keiths — an ' a lot o ' things, an ' told me 1 c ' d stay in the bedroom till supper time an ' think about my sins. I told her I ilked t ' say by myself better anyhow, ' cause then I c ' d think about my Dream- mother — " Blair hesitated. " I guess it ' s a good thing fer some lit- tle boy, that God didn ' t make Aunt S ' lina his mother. She said s!ie guessed my Dream-Mother ' d stay a Dream one fer a good lon while, — an ' that — that my father wouldn ' t want me to go back home, now that he had a new wife, — that she was jus ' a silly young doll anyway an ' wouldn ' t yvant to be bothered wi h step-childern. " " The child ' s grimy fists clenched and he breathed heavily, passing a hand across his hot forehead. " Father said all mothers liked little boys — if they was good. But I guess now Aunt S ' lina ' ll tell him ' bout me, an ' — an ' my Dream- mother won ' t want me. " The Pink Gingham, with the strange intuition of childhood, felt that the conversation was growing beyond her reach, so sug- gested irrelevantly: " L-et ' s go down t ' Carter ' s spring house. " Blair ' s state of mind accepted any diversion, and together the pair ploughed down the muddy road. They were soon deep in the discussion of chocolate rabbits that sold for a cent apiece at the corner store, and if eaten slowly by a long drawn out lapping process, I sternly disapproved of by grown-ups) would turn beauti- fully white without losing their shape, at least for a time. Blair ' s superior knowledge, gained from six and a half years of life in a great city, made him an object of wonder to the village bred Pink Gingham. She listened in open-mouthed rapture as he patiently ex- plained for the fifty-third time, the delights of " shavin ' cups of soapy fiz with sticks in ' em " and of " truly lions that really roared, " While the Pink Gingham babbled gaily on, Blair lapsed into silent contemplation of the sunny road. The strange blur which all day had floated before his aching eyes suddenly became thicker, and he lurched forward. The fence and the road were all mixed up, and a roaring sound drowned the voice of the Pink Gingham. " My head wiggles, " he faltered. And his words sounded in- distinct and far away as he sank on the damp grass. The Pink Gingham was somewhat disconcerted by this sud- den turn of affairs, and attempted to arouse his interest in " a mother robin singin ' a duet with her husband. " But the little figure only sobbed hysterically. " Don ' t talk to me about Mother anythings. 1 want my Dream- mother — 1 want - " his words trailed off and stopped. The Pink Gingham pulled at his hand vigorously, and then bending over, saw the closed eyes and the flushed cheeks. An instant she faltei-ed, then ran back down the road for help. And the Dreamer of Dreams was alone. ..■ ■!= Yes, his Dream was coming back; it was clearer than ever be- fore. This time he could hear Her speak, she had never spoken be- fore, only smiled, till now. He scarcely dared breathe tor fear She would float away, and he would find himself in the big, lonesome four-poster again. He felt suddenly dizzy as a cool hand stroked his forehead and Her eyes looked down at him. " I — didn ' t mean — to break my promise, " he faltered, " I did want — to be good, — so I cculd go back to Father — and my Dream- mother, but — I got so awful loneful " ' Ob, Tom! ? ' cw (ould you leave this poor baby? If I ' d only kno ' n. What a wicked Dream-mother I ' ve been! " -Ngain the vision came nearer, and this time the Real Dream- mother gathered him close in her arms. Blair looked all around the room. Yes, there was the same granite pitcher and wash bowi, " suitable for a boy, " and there, too, was Father; and in the doorway mopping suspiciously red eyes on a tea towel stood Aunt Selina. But nearer than all the others, — and still holding him close to her mother heart was his own Dream-Mother. The Little Chair. LULU HENSLEIGH. AL IT T L E girl was making her way slowly and carefully along a crowded tliorouglifare of New York City. In one hand was tightly clutched a penny, tor the little girl was hastening to the Penny Store for a loaf of bread. As she crossed the street, she went cautiously along, winding her way in and out among vehicles of every descriiition. But when in the cen- ter of the street, the child stoojjed quickly, for she had dropped the precious penny. Just at that moment a touring car was bearing down upon her, though she was too preoccupied to notice it. Sud- denly a huge hand struck her between her tender shoulders and the girl was shoved ahead so that the heavy car did not pass over her body, but her toot was caught beneath the great tire and her little back thrown against the iron hub. The rescuer was an old man who had seen the danger and with no second thought had jumped toward her and thrust her aside, while he received a hard blow on the back of the head and fell helplessly to the pavement. Wlien the little girl next awoke, she was in the hospital. She had several bruises; her back was hurt and her ankle broken, and it would be several weeks before the child could leave tlie hospital, although her injuries would not be permanent. Her name was Gretehen Handorf; one of five small children whose widowed mother had often heard the wolf at the door. As for the old man who had rescued the little girl, he awoke after several hours of unconsciousness, with no remembrance of his past life. Nor was there any clue to his identity except a little Bible, yellow with age, on the faded flyleaf of which were the words: " .Jacob Krey — from your loving Mother. " It was a month or more later that the great Customs House opened Its doors for its montlily auction of unclaimed goods. Very early in the morning many people were gathered there. Among them was the poor widow, Mrs. Handorf. It was nearing winter and she had come in the hope that she might buy coats and dresses which could be made into garments for her needy children. As the little woman was standing by the goods about to be sold, she noticed a small chair, an article that any one might pause to examine. It had an upholstered cushion of red velvet and there were peculiar carvings on the arms and rockers. " Oh, if I could but have that chair, " thought she, " for little Gretehen when she comes home from the hospital. How proud she would be to claim it, " for a little girl of the slums seldom has many toys or playthings. But as soon as the Jlother thought of the joy the chair would bring, she also thought of the money it would cost, and knew at once that she could never afford such a luxury. But the poor woman could not lieep her thoughts away nor refrain from often looking at the little carved piece of furniture. Each time she de- sired it the more. As she was taking a last look, she heard two men talking near her. " What wonderful carving and workmanship to put on a small chair like that! " " Look at that special mark on this rocker. Probably the trade mark of the maker. How strange that it should be in this heap! " " O, some ininii.grant, " said the first, " has left it here while going to seek work perhaps. No one knows what becomes of halt of these foreigners anyway. " As he spoke, the stranger turned towards Jlrs. Handorf. His eye caught the woman ' s solemn expression and the desire manifest In her raorement attracted his notice and made a deep impression on him, so that he said: " You are interested in the little chair? " " I was noticing it. sir, and wishing that I might procure it for my little girl hut I guess she needs clothing more than play- things. " " Your little girl — is she ill? " " Not exactly, sir, but she was hurt in an accident. " As she told the incidents relating to Gretchen ' s accident, the two men expressed their sympathy and then the good woman step- ped aside. Over near the auctioneer stood a dark eyed, heavy set Jew. He was bidding on the little chair. As there were few in that crowd who had come to buy luxuries, the chair was about to be knocked down to him, when one of the strangers spoke up and bought It. Turning to the widow he said: " Here is the little chair you so much desired, I have no urfe for it myself and if it will make your little girl happy, I shall be well repaid. " He strode away before i Irs. Handorf could thank him for his kindness. Her heart full of gratitude, the widow trudged homeward with the chair hugged close to her faded dress, for to her the future was brightened by one kind act. It w ' as several months before Gretchen was able to walk. But by the time she was seven she could run and play. On this her birthday, the little family were to have as the honored guest at din- ner, the old man who, in an effort to save Gretchen. was injured by the touring car. The family had become well acquainted with him, tor they had often seen him when they visited Gretchen at the hos- pital. It was the old man ' s first visit to the humble home and the children were eagerly awaiting him, for they were very fond of " Uncle Jacob, " as they had learned to call him at the hospital, where he had been employed since his accident. Never had he re- gained remembrance of what he had been before, hut always seemed happy and contented, although when alone he had sometimes won- dered about himself, and would then pick up his Bible and read the name " Jacob Krey, " which was the only link with his past life. When the guest entered the door, the children grasped him by the hand; the smallest he took in his arms; in spirit he became as young as they and all were blithe and happy. While Mrs. Handorf was putting the finishing touches to the table, " Uncle Jacob " was teaching the children a new trick which he had learned at the hospital. Then Gretchen, laying her hand on bis arm, said: " Uncle, come to see my little chair which a kind man bought for me, " and she led him over to where it was. At the first glance, Jacob Krey started. He stepped back. His eyes were full of wonderment. Recognition seemed almost to glow in his countenance. What had the chair to do with him? Something, and yet he could not think. He said nothing but stoop- ed and turned the chair over. On one rocker was a strange marking that caught his eye and like a flash it was all explained — the chair was his. He examined the upholstered cushion ahd wholly unmind- ful of those around him, he seized the red velvet in his rough hand and tore it from the chair. The little family w ' ere astonished and stood speechless. There was something in the old man ' s action which frightened tliem and they dared not interrupt. Suddenly he took from the torn cushion, gold coins by the thousands, us it seemed to Gretchen. To the widow and children it was indeed a miracle. At last he pulled out a paper on which were the words: " Jacob Krey, September 10, 1S85. " He gave the paper to Mrs. Han- dorf and asked: " What date is it now? " " April 12, 18S6. " " Then I have been out of the world many months. " As the coins fell through his fingers to the floor, Jacob Krey again forgot his companions and thought only of the little fortune which was restored to him. At last he broke the silence: " You wonder what it is all about? This chair belonged to my I only child who died when younger than your Gretchen here. It was on September tenth that I finally decided to leave the Father- land and come to America, of which 1 had heard so much, so I took what money I had saved through long years of toil and placed it beneath the red velvet on the cushion of my dead daughter ' s chair, where I thought it would be safe, because I never expected to part with that which at one time was almost sacred to me. Around it lingered the memories of that little one who long ago delighted to rock at my feet. " When I arrived here, I left my few belongings at the Cu.s- toms House while 1 started out to find lodgings. It was while going along the street that 1 met your little Gretchen. Then came the accident, as a result of which 1 was dead to the world, and when next I awoke, it was in the hospital. But fortune has again smiled on me. I have found faithful friends in this new land and there is more true happiness in my heart than for many years. My good woman, you and your children shall have what is mine. We shall all share it equally, for had it not been for you, I should never have regained my treasure. " Jacob Krey has long since gone to his reward. Little Gretchen is a woman now with a family of her own. Among her most priceless treasures is the little carved chair around which clings the memory of him who rescued her.

Conference Cliampions, Uil2, is the title by wliicli .Monmoutli College base ball team will be l nown in the future, and as such they are entitled to a word of praise beyond the ordinary, not alone be- cause they have played excellent ball, but because of the personal characteristics of the twelve men who have had a share in honor. Taken as a whole, the team won because of its pitchers and because of its fielding. At the bat they were not as strong as the most of their opponents, but each man could be depended on to deliver his hits at the proper time to do the most good. The individual work of each man was of high standard. Hamilton, Nottleman and McMillan will be missed this year, as they graduated in the class of 1912. With the remainder of the squad back this year we can hope for another Championship Team. Base Ball Record of the Season 1912.

THE 1912 SQUAD Track and Base Ball Outlook, 19 13 -Moiiinouth has won her first two base ball games of the sea- son and promises to have a successful team in spite of the fact that the team lost heavily by graduation of its members last year. We have our old standby, Sclirenk. to depend on and Wasson was pre- vailed upon to return to school late in the year, so that Monmouth cannot ask tor more in the way of pitchers. With Curry, Torrence and Buckley of last year ' s team to back them up, and with the promising material that has been trying out tor the team, there is no reason why JMonmouth should not have a team that she can be proud of. Coach McMillan made a championship team last year and he will make a team this year that will give the other schools in the Conference a run for that position. In track, Piofessor Davis has been doing the coaching. Pro- fessor Davis has had plenty of experience in track work and is a good booster. He has been getting the fellows out and to work and is working up some very good material. One weakness this year will be in the distance runs. The shorter runs and sprints will be our strongest points, with Cleland, Henderson and Denniston as the principal entrants. This season should be a successful one, both in track and base ball. It can hardly be expected that either team will be utterly in- vincible this year, tor there is a considerable proportion of new material in each team, but it is reasonable to expect a season above the average.

Football Review Kelly, Left End. The 1912 football season was marked by an unusual amount of spirit and enthusiasm. Altlio the team met opponents of univer- sity caliber and succeeded in winning only a small percentage of its games, yet it was supported with that true loyalty which is al- ways wanted but rarely seen. The team itself fought from start to finish, feared no odds, and gave the best it had. Only three " M " men reported at the opening of the season Ralph White, Full Back. Robert Graham, Quarter Back. George Campbell, Left Halt Back. tor practice, and around this small nucleus the coach was compelled to build his machine from last year ' s second team and from new material. The first game was played October 1 with the local high school, and resulted in a victory for the college, 18-0. One week later Lombard was defeated on the home field by the score of 20-0. The game was spectacular thruout and was marked by a fighting spirit which brightened the prospects for a winning team. Camp- Drue Rankin, Right Halt Back. Bryant Braiden, Right Tackle.

Monmouth outplayed them in every stage of the game and at the close of the fourth quarter it looked as tho a second victory would be ours with a score of 15 to 9. But while the officials were disputing over the amount of time yet to play, Millikin made a sensational forward pass, and put the ball over for a touchdown, . fter kicking goal, Millikin was declared the winner by one point, 16 to 15. On the following Friday, with the team in the poorest condi- tion of the season. Parsons College was met at Fairfield, Iowa. The loss of two of the best players was keenly felt. Robert JIcBride, the star tackle, was out of the game with a sprained ankle, and Graham, the plucky quarter, with a broken shoulder. Our " jinx " was again the forward pass, tor Parsons made the only score of the game by tlie air route. The next week was spent by the student body and team in preparing for the strong William and Vashti squad. The enthus- iasm created during that week inspired the men with confidence, and they were determined to do their best. During the first half of the game Monmouth held their heavier opponents almost equally, but in the last two quarters weight and experience told, and the Aledo team was able to run up a score of several touchdowns. The following two weeks saw the coach putting in his best efforts to round the team into first-class shape for the big game of the season. On November 9, Monmouth met Knox on Willard Field in one of the most sensat ional games ever seen on the Knox grid- iron. Monmouth was outweighed, but made up in speed and aggres- siveness what it lacked in weight. The final score was 14 to 13. Knox taking the big end. Each team made two touchdowns, but Knox kicked one more goal than .Monmouth, thus taking the lead by one point. Kelly was the bright star of the game for Monmouth. Time and again, with good interference, and with his great speed, he evaded the opposing ends, and advanced the ball into Knox terri- tory, thus putting us within striking distance of their goal. The last two games were played w-ith Lake Forest and Beloit, the former at Lake Forest, and the latter on the home field. Both teams proved to be our superiors in weight and experience. Lake Forest winning 26-0 and Beloit 20-0. The game with Kennedy ' s men on November 16 was played on a muddy field, and thus the lighter Monmouth eleven was unable to do its best, needing a fast gridiron to get up the speed which it depended upon. Beloit con- fidently expected, because of comparative scores, to obtain a de- cisive victory. But after tlie plucky tiglit put up by Monmouth tliey " Were satisfied with three touclidowns.

The 1913 basket ball season closed with a record of five victories and six defeats. Of the eleven games played, seven were with members of the Conference, and in two of the seven Mon- mouth was victorious, Knox suffering defeat in both games with us. The fact that we routed Knox on her own floor sends somewhat of a cheer to what otherwise would have been a med- iocre season. Schulz was the onlj ' man to report from last year ' s squad, making it necessary to choose the other members of the team from new men. Of these, Rankin, McMichael, H. White, R. White, Bailey. Curry and McConnell appeared the most likely. The greatest handicap to the new men was their lack of weight when compar- ed with other teams of the Conference. Weight is a natural asset under the present rules. The season opened with Lake Forest, on the home floor. The game was marked by fast. open play, but it was plain to be seen that the visiting team had the edge on us. Their team v.ork, coupled with accurate basket shooting, was the feature of the game. " Too much Dunsmore " spelled our defeat. The next week Lombard and Knox were both met and defeat- ed, the former at Galesburg and the latter at Monmouth. Lombard ' s small floor prevented any open play, and kept the score down to 39-13. The Knox game was closer and was marked by fast, clean basket ball. Monmouth was ahead at half time and at the end of the game led by eight points, 34-26. The series with Parsons re- PAGE SEVENTY suited in a game apiece, each team winning on its liome floor. Monmouth had the better of the argument, however, for it won 47-19, whereas the best Parsons could do was 26-22. The most important game of the season was with Knox, at Galesburg. For the first time in years, the locals were able to win from their old rivals on the Knox floor. The score was close thru- out, with Monmouth leading most of the time. The features of the game were H. White ' s guarding of Prince, the star Knox forward, and the basket shooting and aggressive playing of Schulz and R. White. The final score was 21-17. The remainder of the games were with Conference teams, all of which resulted in defeats for the locals. One reason for this was the hard Chicago trip, on which three games were played. Schulz was injured in the Armour game and thus was unable to meet Be- loit. The season closed at Lake Forest, the score being practically the same as it had been in the first game with this team.

Peacefulness has marked her career but with her. the days of peace have been days of fruitfulness. In scholarship she has not lacked; her athletes have rep- resented her well; on the platform she has been well represented; and her dramatics, her music, her social life have been matters of comment. There has been nothing to mar her name. Her emblem has been peace, and her labors have been crowned with laurels. But her day has come to leave the institution she loves and she must go out to tap the secrets of the future. Four years of col- lege life seem but a week but for what they have meant we have no expression. They have been years full of joys and pleasures, tempered with heartaches and disappointments; years ever to be remembered for their new inspirations, new ideals, new hopes, new " fears, new loves. It is hard to bring them to an end but there comes a new call and the Class of 1913 must hurry on. wm LOIS ELEAXOR BARNES, Monmouth. Graduated Monmouth H. S., ' 09. Entered Monmouth College ' P9. A.

PAGE EIGHTY-FIVE Junior Class History. HE CLASS OF 1914 is a class with a history. She began making liistory by winning tlie pole scrap from the Sopho- mores and then by a series of escapades in which the president of the Sophomore class and many of her own members were involved. One of the most exciting February 22d banquets of history has been associated with her name and a world- v.ide reputation has fallen to her lot. But now that she has con- tributed so nobly to the annals of history she has settled down and turned her hand to more fruitful tasks. Into every avenue of stu- dent activities she has sent successful leaders and in this book she submits to the world one of the products of her labor, which she hopes will serve to add to her glory. t -: THE 1914 RAVELINaS BOARD.

PAGE NINETY IIVE The Sophomore Class History. fT HE CLASS of 19in has made a record for itself which 1 makes the records of most other classes look dim. Almost no sooner had the " fifteeners " entered school than they turned the tables on their elders, the Sophomores, and won from them the honors of the pole scrap in a hard fought battle. Of course a few of the then Freshmen were treated in somewnat of an underhanded manner by the Sophomores but they outlived that and began doing things in Monmouth. They jumped right into athletics and put the man on the basket ball squad that became its captain the next season. In track they furnished the biggest part of the team, and only in base ball, where the places were tilled with old players, did they not get a show. It was a member of the class of Ifllo that won the preliminary that made him an orator in the state contest and then won the state contest for the first time Monmouth had won it for years. It was the class of 191.5 that re-established the Sophomore debate, won the first of the series and also put a man on the college debate team. And when the time for the State Ora- torical came arouud again this year a " fifteener " won it. These are a few of the things we have done and we still main- tain that like the sun outbeams the stars of the heavens, so does the class of 1915 shine forth among the classes and so, long may it shine. 3C ®I| iFrp0l|man (Elaaa Class Colors — Red and Steel Grey.

And you well know what a feeling O ' er most Freshmen comes a stealing- Deepest blue. When you mix the blue and yellow (Know s the real artistic fellow) You get green. And I s ' pose that ' s why the Freshman Has that verdant reputation, But it ' s mean. No, our laddies and our lassies Are not like most other classes You have seen. For we never have the blues, Nor the yellow, so profuse; We ' re not green. We ' re the brightest on the campus. Beauteous, verdant, leafy campus; We ' re not green.

During the next few years changes were very frequent until Prof. S. H. Price took charge in 1869. Under his leadership and until his death in 1888 very definite progress was made in the Department of Music. During the years 1887-1901 Dr. Herbert, well known as a composer, had charge of the vocal department. At the same time an increasing demand for mus- ical instruction lead the faculty to organize the department under the direction of Prof. Zartman. Dr. Herbert followed him as Direc- tor until the department was formally organized as the Monmouth College Conservatory of Music and Prof. T. Merrill Austin was se- cured as Director in 1901. Under Professor Austin the Conservatory has made very great progress. None less than the best of instructors have been secured and the best of everything needed in equipment has been provided. Mr. Austin has established the Choral Society, a permanent organization, comprised of the best vocal talent in the college and city. He has established an Artists ' Course thru which Monmouth is permitted to enjoy each year at a very nominal cost, a course of con- certs by some of the leading artists of the country. An annual event of his founding is the May Festival, for which a leading orchestra of the country and several leading soloists are usually brot to Mon- mouth. Mr. Austin has immediate supervision of the vocal training and also teaches Organ, Interpretation, and History. Miss Emily Thomas, as teacher of advanced piano, proves her musicianship by her artistic performance but the progress made under her leadership and tl.e finished quality of her pupils pre- eminently speaks her value to the Conservatory. Miss Katharin Finley is i ery popular as a violinist and seems to be able to bring out the same qualities in her pupils. She de- serves special commendation as leader of the orchestra. Miss Marie Kettering, teacher of piano, is one of the best pianists the Conservatory has produced. .As an accompanist she is always in demand. Miss Edna Smith is a very able and efficient teacher of Methods or Public School music. She is a graduate of the Conserva- tory and has had successful experience as a teacher of music in public schools. The Conservatory met a severe loss in the early part of the year when Mr. Foyal D. Hughes , teacher of Voice, Harmony, Com- position and Counterpoint, resigned to accept a position as Director of the Conservatory at Ohio Northern University. But it was very fortunate in securing Mr. Thos. H. Hamilton to till the position. Mr. Hamilton, in the short time he has been in the Conservatory, has made himself very popular. Under his leadership in particular the Glee Club has had a very successful year and has been permanently organized. The bi-weekly recitals at which pupils are permitted to gain public experience; the weekly piano recitals, and the term recitals are features of the Conservatory which are of great value to the pupils. The Faculty recitals, the Artist Course, the Choral Society, the Orchestra and the Glee Club all give opportunities in musical training and experience that are not equalled everywhere. The School of Oratory. im A graduating course in Oratory has not been offered in Mon- mouth College until three years ago. It was then that the Depart- ment of Oratory was organized under Miss Dickinson, and the course thrown open to students. Several persons at once took ad- -5 J - vantage of the course and the first class was graduated in 1912. . " 1 This year ' s class contains but one graduate as compared with five of last year, but there are several .Juniors in oratory who expect to graduate in 1914. The object of the School of Oratory is to aid pupils in the interpretation of literature, so that it will aid them in every branch of college work; to prepare teachers of Elocution and Oratory; and to develop intelligent, natural readers and speakers. Two courses are offered by the school, a teacher ' s course and a public reader ' s course. The courses are open to High School graduates. Private lessons are required in addition to the regular class work, and two years of English, Psycholog and Physiology are also re- quired. Miss Maude Tyree is the director of the School. English work is given under the able direction of Prof. M. M. Maynard and Psychology under Prof. L. E. Robinson, head of the department of English and Philosophy. PAGE O X E I-I U N D R V. I) .

(§1 [NG to the inability of the College to furnish a suJli- cient number of tenors to warrant the organization of a Glee Club, the Glee Club was allowed to lapse during the year 1911-12, but this year there was such a good supply of material for all parts that a try-out was held at the very first of the year and the Club picked, under the Directorship of Prof. Royal D. Hughes. Mr. Hughes was just getting the Club into shape when he was elected as Director of the Conservatory of Music in the Ohio Northern University, and resigned to take up the new position. Prof. Thomas H. Hamilton fortunately was secured to take his place but the time, which is naturally lost in changing directors, removed the possibility of a Christmas tour and all efforts were spent in preparing for the spring vacation tour. A varied program was planned with the aid of Miss Mary Lord, Reader, Jlr. Rolla Mudd, Tenor, and Mr. Lawrence Teare, Violinist. Mr. .John Ferguson, Field Assistant to the President, ar- ranged a tour to the Southern part of the state out from St. Louis. The club, with Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson as chaperons, left Mon- mouth the evening of March 17 and during the next weeli gave a series of concerts at Marissa, Pinckneyville, Cutler, Coulterville, Oakdale, Sparta, Tilden and St. Louis, and returned to Monmouth March 26. Everywhere, save where a stormy night forbade, they were greeted with good audiences and met with a full share of suc- cess. The Quartette, composed of Messrs. Hamilton, Mudd, McEI- hinney and Cleland; the soloists, Mr. Mudd, Mr. Teare, and the Reader, Miss Lord, contributed much to the success of the tour. " The Wooers, " or according to the programs, " Love Scene from ' Samson and Delilah, ' " as executed by Messrs. Barnes and McEIhinney, always made a hit. " Doan ' Ye ' Cry, Ma Honey " and " Ciribiribin, " by the Glee Club, were favorite numbers with most audiences, A goodly share of snappy encores gave plenty of life to the program. In addition to the St. Louis trip several short week-end trips have been taken and two Monmouth concerts have been given. The season has proven a success in every way. The Glee Club has been organized on a permanent basis. A constitution has been adopted and ofhcers have been elected. President— De Witt Cleland. Student Business Manager — Ralph McLaughlin.

A. has undertaken a new line ot work thru the medium o£ gospel tea ms. Several ot the workers attended a convention in Iowa during the Thanksgiving vacation at which gospel team work was especially studied. A gospel team was accordingly organized, with Clarence Gibb, John Simpson, Hoy McElhinney, Will McCuUoch and Walter Miller as members, and correspondence was taken up, which ended in arrangements for the team to go to Alexis for one week during the Christmas vaca- tion. This week was spent in a series of special meetings with special efforts on the part of the members to use their best influ- ence on the High School fellows. The Churches co-operated will- ingly and a very successful week was experienced. The week ' s work was so successful that two teams were organized for the spring vacation. One spring vacation team, composed ot Otto Self, Dean McKee, Harry Gibson. .John Simpson and Bert Chapel, went to Biggsville and conducted a successful series of services. The other team, consisting ot Bruce Henderson, Dales Buch- anan, Henry Hastings, .James McCoy and Harry Gillis, met with a very pleasant and successful week ' s work at Bushnell. Reports full of praise for the work of the teams came back from each community, and not least among these to receive great benefits from the work, were the members ot the teams themselves.

Monmouth College Choral Society. Altho the Jlonmouth College Choral Society is not a close or- ganization, it is none the less important. It is a society composed in Monmouth College and of the city of eighty ot the best singers of Monmouth, and has for its leader one of the best directors in the state of Illinois, Prof. T. Merrill Austin. Under his able direc- tion they have given two concerts during the year; the mid-winter concert and the May Festival.. The Mid-Winter Concert consisted o( solos by Miss Kathryn Finley, Violin, Miss Emily Thomas, Piano, and Mr. Church, Pipe Organ, and two choruses by the Choral Society for the first part; the second part was the rendition ot Gade ' s " The Erl King ' s Daugh- ter.

Professor Story has shown another evidence of his Progres- sive tendencies in the organization of the History Club. The ob- ject of the Club is two-told: — the attainment of scholarship as the basis of true culture and social standing — this implies an apprecia- tion of knowledge for its own sake; the second object is the culti- vation of an aspiration for graduate work. History, as the record of the human race, gives ample opportunity tor a recognition of the conditions and needs of mankind, and of the means by which his plane may be ele ated. Membership in the Club is open to all students; the large attendance attests the interest in the movement. At the monthly meetings a topic of historical interest is taken up; Professor Story sets forth the characteristics of the subect in an impartial and comprehensi ' e manner; this is followed by a general discussion. An informal social hour adds to the pleasure of the evening. The Club has justified its organization; it has done much to break down the barriers which usually exist betw ' een professors and students; it has established a precedent for intellectual enjoyment of an earnest and profitable character. The official board consists or Lillian Blayney, President; Harriet St. Clair, Vice President; Will McCulloch, Secretary. STUDENT VOLUNTEERS. The Student Volunteer Band of Monmouth is a part of that great World Movement of the Student Volunteers, composed of men and women who are not only willing but purpose to go to the foreign fields as missionaries. The Band was organized in 1004, and was recognized in 1911. During the existence of the organi- zation many of its members have gone forth to sow their lives in Missionary service. The Student Volunteer Band meets each Saturday evening at eight o ' clock and from time to time holds open meetings to which those Interested in the work are invited. A systematic course of Mission study is taken up. This year " The Desire of India, " by F. J. Datta, has been the principal text book. The band has meant much to those who have gone from it in the past and w e trust that it may serve still more to strengthen the men and women w ho are influenced by it and to produce more w ' orkers. and stronger and more efficient workers for the greatest task before Christianity — the Evangelization of the World. THE GERMAN CLUB. Although Professor Church has but recently come into our midst, he is making rapid strides toward the highest standard in his courses. This year a German Club has been organized, with ad- vanced students of German as charter members. The membership is elective and confined to advanced students. The programs are ' aried, but distinctively German in nature and construction. The club represents on the part of Professor Church and the members, an effort to achieve the mastery of this language and to put it to practical use; for this purpose the Club presents an opportunity im- possible to class room work. Meetings are held monthly at the home of Professor Church. The officers are: Mary Lord, President; Esther Craig, Vice President; Ruth Okey, Secretary. THE STUDENT BODY. Affairs directly pertaining to all of the students of the Col- lege are either directly dealt with by the students themselves in their organization, the Student Body, or thru the medium of their representatives, the Student Council. The officers of the Student Body for the year 1912-13 have been: John J. Kritzer— President. Lois Barnes — Secretary -Treasurer. Rejected Contributions. She ' d red hair and freckles and ugly cross eyes, But I said that I loved her true; She wore bright green hose, a dress blue as the skies, And she said that she loved me too. I fondled and kissed her a peck on the ear. But college has started at last; I ' ve vowed to cut out all such things for this year, I ' ve got to quit living so fast. — Too sentimental. — Ed. When Dido climbed her funeral pyre. And soaked her clothes with gasoline. She cursed Aeneas to the mire, Denounced him awfully mean. (Thirty-two other stanzas.) — Too much historical allusion. — Ed.

COLLEGE BOYS ENJOY PRANKS. Entertainment Last Evening. Monmouth 111., September 16 1912. Late this evening a few of the new men were escorted by their immediate prede- cessors to the edge of town where one of the most enjoyable events of the year was prosecuted. The freshmen were all given opportunity to develope their talents in ev- ery possible field of activity. Mr. Wilmer Graham " Pierced " the fence and displayed remarkable genius as " Homeun Hector. " The remainder of the boys rendered " Grandmother ' s Chair " very pitifully while the sophs beat time on the seat. Doctor Mcilichael was not there. NEW OFFICER FOR COLLEGE. Rev, John Ferguson of Buffalo, N. Y., Chosen as the President ' s Assistant. Is Well Qualified. Monmouth Daily Review. Oct. o, 1SI12. — Rev. ,Iohn Ferguson is the latest to become identified with the inerests of Monmouth College and he is expected to arrive here either the middle of next month or the first of December to beigin his work. Officially he will be the assistant to the president and his duties will be along the line of arousing interest in the college among the churches and securing new students for the institu- tion. Rev. Ferguson is no novice at tlie work which has been assigned him, as he was out two months this summer doing sim- ilar work and it was after seeing the results of his campaign then, that the co llege au- thorities thought it a good move to secure his permanent service. The new man is not a stranger in Mon- mouth as he graduated here with the class of 1891 and later went to the theological seminary, where he also finished his course. After completing his education he entered the ministry, and for the last ten years he has been pastor of the church at Buffalo, New York. He just recently resigned his pastorate there and as soon as he can make his arrangements he will leave the pastoral work in New York and come here to assume his new position. While the college has grown and prosper- ed without the special services of a field worker since the resignation of W. J. Bu- clianan, it is tliouglit tliat nnicli greater growth can he shown and more students in- duced to enter the local school if there is a man kept in the field all the time who will keep the tame of the school constantly be- fore the people. DORMITORY WEARING COMPLETION FRESHMEN WIN COLOR RUSH. Defeat Sophomores In Pole Scrap. Monmouth, 111., September 23. At 5 o ' clock this morning the citizens in the East part of town were aroused by the ringing of bells. A crowd soon began to gather and the members of both classes ar- rayed in hideous war-paint prepared for the rush. The colors of the sopliomores waved in the gentle morning breeze and a large circle of spectators surrounded the scene of the battle. At six o ' clock on signal from the referees the freshmen made a rush. (We omit the details of the conflict, as they are somewhat brutal. These particulars may be had by application at the office). Too Much. Neice — Uncle, 1 saw the dearest little handkerchief down town this morning. I want you to get it for me. It only costs five dollars. " Uncle — " Ah no! That ' s too much to blow in. " — Independent. This Fine Home for College Girls Up-to-Date in Every Particular — Sitting Room Chief Feature. Monmouth, 111., .June 1, 1913.— The girl ' s dormitory is nearing completion. The foun- dation is well under way and the sub-base- ment has been arranged for. The college is to be congratulated on having such a large and commodious home for its girls. Every girl in it will be surrounded with every- thing in the way of convenience. Comfort will be manifest in every line. One great feature of the new dormitory is the sitting room. It will be open to the girls once every two weeks for the purpose of entertaining their company. To expedite matters, the girls will be divided into two grou ps: the first group may entertain com- pany Thursday evening of one week; the second group, the following Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 and so on. The equipment of the room is up to date in every particular. At one end is the en- trance to the dean ' s parlors, with a magniti- ficent portrait of the dean in scholarly atti- tu ' ie, adorning the wall. Close by, at the other end a large fireplace to give cheer to the room on the long winter Thursday evenings. Along the other two walls run im- mense " comfort " benches from one end to the other, all upholstered in the latest style. The bench along the east wall will be dedi- cated to the girls of the dormitory; that on the west to their gentleman friends. The dean has consented to allow the gentleman visitor to sit opposite his host. It is thot this will be an extremely suc- cessful arrangement, tor the boys will be permitted thus to see their friends occasion- ally in the most favorable environment, and the social element that has been so frequen- tly lacking in the make-up of college men and women will be thus provided. The illustration which we present here- with is not a photograph, but it presents in a graphic way the -ast superiority of the new conditions, over those at present. It has been provided in the by-laws that the dean shall inform the gentlemen guests at least two minutes before the hour for de- parture, in order that there shall be no oc- casion for reprimand on account of broken rules. The picture given herewith is the picture THE OLD WAY THE DORM WAy s of the last day in the year when 10:30 per- mission is given. Certainly nothing has come short in the matter of provision for the girls of Mon- mouth College. IN STAGE LAND. Monmouth, 111., Dec. 19. — A number of the students were in attendance on the " Housa of a Thousand Candles " in the Pattee Oper.i House here last evening. An excellen. show is reported. But altho Mr. Robert Teare had his field glasses and his slid ; rule to make his computations with, he could only find 143 out of 1000 candles thai were advertised. March 3. A number of young men, well known in town and college circles, will make their debut in " Madame X " at the Opera House here this evening. Some wi 1 appear as juniors, the remainder will play the role of spectators in the courtroom scene. n I ,1 Twice Today, Monmouth and 8 is p m and all week Matine e Saturday GEORGE SIDNEY In his 1913 Edition of the Musir-ai Comedy Success BUSY I ZZ Y Supported by Carrie Webber and an Avalanche of Pretty Girls PRICES— Nights— Wed.

Monmouth Daily Review, Oct. 16, 1912.— The Monmouth College authorities announce that they have secured the services of Dr. E. K. Strachan, of the University of Illinois, who is to have charge of science hall during the Mr. Trickey ' s sickness. Prof. Trickey, who came here this fall to take Prof. Swan ' s place, was taken suddenly ill about a week ago and underwent an operation for ap- pendicitis at the Monmouth hospital. For a few days the college was without any science professor and Dr. McMichael spent some time in Chicago looking for a new man. Through the kindness of the University of Illinois, Dr. E. K. Strachan was granted a leave of absence for two months in order to come to Monmouth College and take charge of the chemistry and physics depart- ment. Dr. Strachan is a young man. a grad- uate of the University of Illinois, and has been an assistant instructor at that school tor the past few years. He will be in Mon- mouth College until Prof. Trickey is able to resume his duties. ATTENDS FACULTY RECEPTION. Shoes Center of Attraction. Is it in good form to wear tan shoes to a faculty reception or should a man get his shoes dyed beforehand is a question over which many are pondering today. A young gentleman attended the Faculty reception last evening and in the stir his slioes at- tracted so much attention tliat as soon as the crowd moved away from him he was heard to wonder whether or not he had bet- ter go home. " It wouldn ' t make a scent ' s difference to me, " he said. AMERICAN INSTITUTION DESTROYED. GREAT ART FEATURE. Noteworthy Exhibit at Auditorium. Monmouth, 111., Nov. 21, 1912.— This morn- ing at the Auditorium one of the finest dis- plays of the great works of art ever seen in this city was witnessed by the students. All of the great masters were represented, and in all over 200 pictures were displayed, in- cluding some by modern painters. There was a large crowd in attendance and a great many wore blue glasses. QUARTETTE SINGS. College Warblers at Willow Grove School. Monmouth, 111., Oct. 31, 1913.— Four of Monmouth ' s young men visited Willow Grove last night in behalf of G. O. P. The chauffeur smoked a cigar all evening but fortunately no accidents happened. Mr. Mc- Bane ' s plea for the principles on which our country was founded met with great ap- plause. At last reports the chauffeur was very happy. Leading College Wrecked in a Pitched Battle. London, Feb. 24, 1911. — It is reported that Monmouth College, a leading American in- stitution, has been entirely destroyed as a result of a pitched battle between the classes. Two students were killed and several others fatally injured. Monmouth, 111., Feb. 22, 1913.— Today is a memorable day in Monmouth College. It is the day of the traditional Washington s Birthday Banquet, when the freshman class in particular holds its festivities. But this year the banquet will be held without the traditional pitched battle. For it will be remembered that after the serious conflict of two years ' ago. very careful precautions were taken that have prevented further continuation of such dangerous proceedings. AT THE PEACE CONTEST. Mr. White Contestant Has Some Guests. Aledo, 111., April 12, 1913.— Mr. White of Monmouth was a representative in the State Peace Contest held here last night. Two of the Monmouth boys came along with him and spent the night with him at the hotel. Entrance to and exit from his room were gained by means of a ladder placed by the window. Mr. White paid the bills. REII. ' STATSMEiVr PLEDGE 0? ThZ ME.VJ::EP.£ OF Tii£ CLASS CF 1914. Date. ?eb. 2A , 1911. I.

AUNT SUSAN ' S COLUMN, Monmouth, 111., .Tune 6.— Prof. .J. H. .McMil- lan has celebrated one of his birthday anni- versaries during the last year. Professor JIcMillan has in his position in Jlonraouth, greatly systematized every department of the college. To his credit is largely due the fact that a student can not make away with extra number of cuts or escape any fees assessed. Lois E. McMichael to Rev. Geo. C. Vincent, pastor of Second Church, at home of the bride ' s father, Pres. T. H. McMichael, March the twenty-fifth, nineteen hundred and thir- teen. (Aunt Susan will gladly hear ana answer any questions that bother girls thru the medium of this column). Dear Aunt Susan: There has been some discussion as to the proper length of time to spend, walking ten blocks with a young man. Will you answer as soon as possible? L. P. S. P. Opinion varies on this matter, nut I would advise you not to spend longer than forty minutes, especially if the young man is an old friend and you see him quite often. Aunt Susan. Dear Aunt Susan: Will you kindly help a young girl away from home? I have been writing to a friend of mine tor some time and wonder if once a day is too frequent. Will it detract from his studies? Does it seem too friendly? H. P. H. P. It is delightfully thotfull of you to think of his studies. From your letter I judge your daily letters to be a help and inspiration to any young man. So I do not consider it too frequent. Aunt Susan, Dear Aunt Susan: I write to you in des- paratlon. What would you do it you were called the " Loving Kid? " S. M. S. M. It is indeed a sorry thing to have your young life spoiled by such a title. I advise you to be dignified and exclusive and see if the appellation is not dropped. Aunt Susan. THE POINT OF VIEW.

Students Inaugurate an Omnibus Fee. Monmouth, 111., Jan. 21. — In a ballot taken today a four dollar omnibus tee was adopted by the students of the College by a vote of 188 in favor to 13 against. All of the students did not vote, but the number 188 was sufficient to carry it thru the student body even if all of the remainder of students had been opposed to it. The tour dollar tee as adopted is to be col- lected each semester along with the tuition and is to be distributed as follows: All Athletic Purposes $2.20 Forensic League, Debates, Ora- tion, etc 30 Library 50 Lecture course $1.00 Total $4.00 This semester the lecture course is to go to the Athletic Fund to make up the deficit that has haunted the Athletic Board tor some time. It is thot that the new fee will place the Lecture Course, the Debate and Oratory, the Library and the Athletics of the school on a good financial basis, and on the whole be more satisfactory to the students than the methods of the past. To Be Head of Nation. IVIarshall — Vice President. Nov. 6, 1912. — The election has resulted in a big landslide tor the Democrats. Wilson and Marshall carried the country by a big majority, completely swamping the divisions of the Republican Party. Theodore Roose- velt and William Tatt have wired their congratulations to the president elect. A large measure of the Democratic success is due to the college element of the country. There progressive leaders have attached quite a following, subtracting from the sup- port of G. O. P., and bringing its downfall as well as their own. The new administration promises to be conservative with progressive tendencies, and the outlook upon the next administra- tion is very bright. AUTUIVIN FESTIVITIES. Weeniewursts Served. Monmouth, 111., Oct. 6, 1912.— The old brewery premises was the scene of a very pretty party last evening in honor of one of the old students. Weenies were served. Wo- man suffrage was advocated and stories were told around the fire. (As we are a tem- perance paper we can ' t tell what kind of elder they had to drink, but it is reported to have been very good). Forced to Get a New Supply .of Refresh- ments. Monmouth, 111., Dec. 13, 1912. — The Fresh- men had a big festival in the banquet room of Wallace Hall, and they enoyed themselvs immensely till time came for refreshments. Then it was found that some vandal had disappeared with their entire supply of oys- ters. Of course they were very much disap- pointed, but another supply was quickly secured, and the festivities continued. No clue w-as left, but the officials are not leaving a stone unturned in searching for the gentlemen who stole the dainties. A ROIVIANCE. Happy Ending To a Playful Prank. Ind., June 30, 1915. — A beautiful wedding was witnessed here today, that of Mr. J ames McCoy of Monmouth College and Miss Leon Dietz, at the home of the bride ' s parents. The marriage terminates a delightful little Romance. Jliss Dietz had written her name on a shipping box and Mr. McCoy discovered it and opened correspondencce with her. which was concluded by the meeting and marriage of the two young people.

Reid, former Jlonmouth College athletic coach, will act as referee at the Western Illinois Inter- Scholastic Field and Track meett, which is to be held here, May 31, under the auspices of the college. Mr. Reid, at present a promi- nent attorney of Waterloo. la., is a com- petent official, and his selection is probably the best choice Coach McMillan could make. At a meeting of the athletic board, the members talked over the plans of the day, tho no definite arrangements were complet- ed. Gold, silver and bronze medals have been ordered, as have the two banners, which are to be awarded to the winner of the meet, and of the relay. Acceptances from a number of the schols have already been received. Peoria, Ke- wanee, Galesburg, Lewiston, Chillicothe, Ale- do, Davenport, Roseville, Kirkwood, Biggs- ville, Stronghurst, Viola, Knoxville, Moline, Macomb, Abingdon and Monmouth have sig- nified their intention of coming. Others are yet to be heard from. Entries are to close May 23. Monmouth, May 17. — Arrangements are being made for that which is hoped to be- come an annual affair in Monmouth. Refer- ence is made to the Inter-High School track meet to be held on the college field on May 31. The meet will be under the auspices of the college. Some sixty of the western Illi- nois high schools have been invited by the Athletic board to participate in the meet, and a number have already signified their intention of entering. April 28. — The Sophomores carried off the honors in an inter-class meet here today by a narrow margin. Monmouth, May 17, — In a dual track meet held at the College Park today, IMonmuutn lost to Knox by a score of 84-42. Denniston starred for Monmouth ; Spears for Knox. IS THE HAMILTONIAN REGIME.

Riddle was at a ball game. At his side sat a rosy cheeked lass. Around him en- thusiasm was at its highest pitch. But Rid- dle was indifferent to all this outward sur- face ardor. His zeal was far deeper. He seized the maiden ' s hand and held it very long. Then he glandced nervously around. One lady in the crowd, just behind him, was watching him. and on tlie very verge of pro- claiming the secret. But a glance was all it took for Riddle to realize the seriousness of the situation. He dropped his betters hand, his own went into his pocket. Out came a quarter, and over it went with a " sh-sh-sh " to the only one who had seen. The day was saved; the presence of two bits had saved a life ' s reputation; and the game went mer- rily on. It was in the International law class. The day was dreary and close. More than one weary head was nodding uneasily here and there thru the room. One in particular drooped heavily on the shoulders of its own- er and it was plain to be seen that one man was lost to the world completely. But with a sudden start the sleeper arousea him- self. All eyes turned toward him at once, and a snicker spread spontaneously thru the class. A neighbor near at hand tried poking the offender in the ribs, and he sup- posing naturally that his name had been called, slowly raised himself, adjusted him- self carefully to his habitual recitation posture and looked expectantly at the Pro- fessor for his question. A howl of merri- ment rang from the class in which even the good old Professor joined, and only then did Robert comprehend the situation and sink sheepishly to his chair. The young man was spending his evening with a charming young lady; " Chauncey " she said, " do . " " I beg your pardon, my nome is Henry. " " Oh I I thot this was Wednesday. " Typhographical errors, especially in tele- phone directories, have been responsible for many humerous incidents. The following conversation has been reported by mort than one person who has looked up a cer- tain number in the telephone directory. " Hello. Is Tom White there? " " No. What do you as me that question for? and I ' ll tell you why. " " I wanted to talk to him. " " Well Tom White isn ' t here. I ' m an old lady that lives up on B street, and Tom White doesn ' t live here. I don ' t know him or . " Beg your pardon. I guess I ' ve got the wrong number. " One of the girls was found before a look- ing glass the other day singing; " Oh You Beautiful Doll! " BUSINESS CARDS. JOHN T. McBANE ESTHER CRAIQ MISS GEORGIA MILLER General Manager.
