DAVID STEEL.—As President of the Juniors, "Dave is a whizz." as he is at anything he undertakes, no matter whether it is track, debate, or fussing. He has been guilty of singing in the Glee Club, and even took a try at the band, but debate and his social duties have interfered. The good wind which he acquired in debate and oratory are responsible for him holding the state record in the two-mile run.
OLIVE A. K1NSELLA.—A church mouse has nothing on Olive when it comes to being quiet. She worries over nothing but her brother, and he. being a Soph, is enough to make anyone worry. She is a conscientious worker and does not believe in cutting classes for any form of campustry, unless it takes the form of a general rally.
Forty-fourGEORGE R. MILBURX.—When Jack conies smiling down the main hall and reaches toward his pocket tor a leather notebook, it means one of two things, either a laundry bill or a pledge to buy an Annual. Besides running Mike O'Connell’s steam laundry. Jack undertook to manage the 1916 Montanan. His chief ambition in life is to collect what he can. and win an "M."
AMELIA STANLEY.—Amelia is Ruth's shadow, but doesn't like to be reminded of it. She has the distinction of having the reddest checks in school; provided only the real tiling is considered. She has also been class treasurer for three years in succession and has acquired a delicacy of voice and touch that makes the parting of four bits seem like a family reunion.
ALBERT OS EX B RUG.—‘"Mike" is another Butte product and came over here with a "rep" in football that was hard to beat. Mike sure loves a good time at
the expense of the other fellow, but he takes care that the expense is pretty well kept down. It is reported that Mike went on a party once, many years ago. but his life since then has led us to believe that it was only a dream.
LULA M. CHESTXUTT—"Skinney" hails from Havre, and if there are any more like her up there, we would be pleased if they would send them down here parcels-post-paid. If they had a "six-foot" club, “Skinney" could almost join, as it would only be polite for them to allow ladies in if they were only an inch undersize. She is some popular when there is a dance, and to accommodate everyone. she would have to have a program as long as herself.
Forty-fiveRUTH SWEAT.—“Laugh and grow fat.” says Ruthie. and she does it just to show that she will practice what she preaches. She objects to fussing because it robs her of some sleep, and she says that ten hours of sleep a night isn't enough. She lias tried all kinds of “anti-fat" and now works in the library at noon, so she won't have to eat any lunch.
MYRON L. CARR.—“Chief” or “Blondy” will get him whenever he is wanted, and if speed is required, yell "shift!” He is a rather small child, but lives, eats, sleeps and studies football. He can give more rules on the forward pass than lie can on the cosine of angle theta, and is still trying to remember whether it was his tibia or radius that was broken in the Missoula game.
ERMA M. LESSEE.—“Stub” or “Blondy,” either one. answers for a name for this diminutive child from Butte. She can get grades, men, or both, and docs not have to work for either. As a rooter. Erma has few equals and no superiors, and holds the honor of being cheer leader for the Boosterines. and they always made considerable noise when noise was needed, due to the efforts and coaxing of "Stub.”
WM. F. 11EAGNEY.—Bill is a handsome boy. but will have nothing to do with the ladies, so it is all wasted. He was once a football player, but a broken collar bone and three months with his arm in a sling made football a thing of the past with Bill. He is Irish, and proud of it. and believes in the good things of this earth being well distributed.
Forty-sixPALMER TUBBS.—Palmer hails from Elkhorn, Wisconsin, and seems to he proud of it. He has a name-sake on the hill, but refuses to admit it. and even dislikes to answer to the name Tubbs. It is rumored on the hill that Palmer has a case, but that has not been sufficiently substantiated or confirmed. He never looks at a girl, so the rumor may be false.
ETHEL M1EWALD.—The same lucky wind that blew in Bert Clarkson from the Chinook deserts, also blew Ethel Miewald this direction. She is always on hand for class meetings, and gives very little trouble when being pried loose from fifty cents for class dues. She is a “good scout.” whichever way you put it, and a Boosterine from the word "go.”
TAYLOR LESCHER.—When “Taylor Made” decided to come here to school from Great Falls, the College acquired a heavy asset in a small bundle. Lescher is not fat, but he is heavy, and is the prize guard of the Junior Basketball team. He aspires at times to be a social light, and on such occasions may be seen wending his way down Main street with some “Dorm" inhabitant—on the same side of the street, but not near enough to hurt him.
ESTHER BELLE COOLEY.—Esther is one of the girls who is always seen and not heard, unless there is something doing. Her questions have been the bane of Prof. Spaulding’s existence, as he often has trouble in answering them. In fact, some of the questions are unanswerable as far as the present state of learning goes. Esther registered in the biology course as a freshman, but being afraid of her uncle, she sought the protecting wing of Miss Harkins.
Forty-ei«;htOTTO BATCH.—Otto was a member oi the 15"s. but quit school a year to run a farm. He showed unusually good judgment in returning in time to be a '16. He has a stand-in with the Freshmen that take Biology 9. as he is the one who points out the wilcy sporanguin of a fungus in its native lair, and shows the Frosh how to peek through a microscope, lie plays a squawk stick in the band and orchestra for recreation.
JEANETTE KELLY.—"Laugh and stay fat.'’ has been Jeanette's bv-word and she has lived up to it. She is the best-natured. jolliest. fattest and best-liked Junior on the hill. She breezed in from Deer Lodge, not from the penitentiary, but from the College of Montana. She is as honest as the day is long, and has refused several fortunes in the way of bribes, as it is her duty to make the rounds of the hill and collect the absence reports every day. Many a class "cutter” has here met with an icy stare when attempting to have his absence report kept from going to the office.
ALBERTA BORTHWICK.—When the wary fusser makes his first trip to the Dorm with fear and trembling, lie is suddenly relieved when the door opens and Alberta smiles upon him. All visions of a fierce ogress disappears, and he wonders why he was ever afraid to make the first step. Alberta is one of the most
industrious workers in the Y. W. C. A.
ELIZABETH FLETCH ER.—Betty is a Madison County product, hailing from Sheridan. Montana. She was once afflicted with the disease known as affinity bug. but he left school, so her grades have improved. She was said to be perfectly and supremely happy while in Missoula for the football game.
Forty-nineVICTOR COTXER.—If you don't like this Annual, and you have any kick coming, take it out on Vic, but be sure you are a good ways off when you kick. Vic is the man of the hour when it comes to basket ball. He is harder to hold than an eel. and possesses a powerful sixth sense of knowing where the basket is located at all times. His long shots, over hand, under hand, before hand, behind hand, hack hand and black hand, bring the people to their feet time and again.
HOWARD SEAMANS.—“Hod” hit the trail from Wisconsin in search of a school where he could hunt insects in their native lair. Montana State appealed to him. and now on nice days he can be seen percolating around over the scenery with a bug net stretched out in front of him. and a sprightly butterfly some two or three jumps to the good. He once pursued and caught the affinity bug. but it escaped and he has been a hermit ever since.
MARS A R1DDEI.L.—Marsa has a line of talk as rapid as her walk, and her strolling would make an express train work to keep up. She has more business than a cranberry merchant, and what is more, she has the ability to get away with it. She runs everything from Prexy to the V. W. C. A., and gets good grades besides, which snakes quite a good schedule.
MAUD ALEXANDER.—A quiet and demure child as a rule, but just the opposite when she can get hold of a piano. Graduated in music, but is now taking a secretarial course and trying to figure out how piano fingering can be done on a typewriter and vice versa.

R ir trz
The class of 18 came to Montana State last September. It is the largest class in the institution and also the freshest. It did not take them long to get accustomed to the ins and outs of the College and more than once they beat the Sophs in instigating initiations. They were not very small for infants and after a short struggle, pulled the husky Sophs through the frog-pond. The ‘’round-up” hit the class hard, but there are enough of them left to supply leaders in all of the branches of college activities. -

The three-year course in Agriculture has become one of the live departments of the institution. They have effected a permanent organization. which means much to the members and through which they give support to the outside projects carried on by the College. This organization meets once a week and at these meetings debates and other forms of literary work is taken up. Each spring a stock judging contest is held, the winner being awarded a substantial prize. The organization also has athletic teams which play the teams of the various classes. The organization has a joint dance every year with the preparatory department which is one of the big social functions of the club.

The publication which is now called the Montanan was first edited as the “Blue and Gold ‘ in 1907. The next year the name was changed to “Montanian" and the following year to “Montanan.” which it now bears. The book is edited by the Junior class in honor of the graduating class. It is a publication for the recording of events of the College year; these records are both pictorial and literary.
All of the work required to get out the book is done by members of the Junior class and they are also responsible for the paying of all bills. The Staff endeavors to put this book-out so that it will be a credit to the Class and with all of the imperfections which it has. we trust that it will meet with the approval of the reader.
The Staff wishes to thank those whose help has made it possible for us to get out this book. They are: Ott Romney, John Collet and Miss Lane.

Seventy-eightThe Booster Club
The Booster Club was organized in 1909 as the result of the need of some general student body to promote the interests of the student body along the lines of activities. They were organized as a general body before which all questions concerning the College as a whole could be brought for discussion and the general opinion secured. The main object was to boost the College. The Inter-scholastic basketball tournament is one of the results of this organization. At all of the athletic games the Boosters can be found in a body, which has become known as the rooting section. The activities of the Boosters have not been as large this year as in the past: perhaps the reason is that no topics came up that reciuircd a general discussion: and there are so many different clubs that have been organized to take care of individual student topics that the Boosters' Club has less to do. The membership of the club consists of all four-year college men.

The Boosterines are an organization composed of the women students of the College. The purpose of this organization is to help the College in all of the ways that they can and to boost athletics.
This organization has done much toward the securing of new students and toward making it agreeable for them after they get here. The Boosterines attend all of the athletic games in a body and their cheering section is as prominent as the Boosters’. They are always ready to support any good move and this year they sent a large delegation to Missoula for the football game and after the football season was over they gave the team a big feed and reception.

The Jack OLanterns is the only dramatic club at the College, but there is no need for any more as this club has a complete organization which is systematic in every detail that is needed in a dramatic organization. The plays that are put on by this club are under the direction of Mrs. Una B. Herrick, dean of women, and all who have seen any of the plays will agree that they are first class. The Club not only puts on a good entertainment, but they use the proceeds from the play to build memorials at different places on the campus. The most prominent one of these is the cement benches.

Civil Engineering Society
Organized in 1908, the Civil Engineering Society has become very prominent in the activities on the hill. Interest in the Society is kept up by meetings where talks and lectures are given by members of the Engineering faculty or by some outside man who is following some branch of the subject in practice.
The Society published an Engineering Journal in 1912, but the difficulty and expense of such an undertaking has discouraged any other like publication and instead, they issue an Engineering supplement to the Exponent, Mr. Leslie Pettigrew editing last year's supplement.
The membership in the club is limited to students taking Civil Engineering.

Iffhty-eifthtThe Agricultural Club
In 1910 the Agricultural Club was reorganized and the membership limited to four-year College men. Since that time the Club has been very active and interest is kept up by having regular meetings at which interesting topics are discussed by faculty members or by some noted agriculturist of the country. The Club has its own book store and thus saves the members a percentage on all of the books they are required to have. This Club is also one of the progressive organizations and does all it can in promoting College activities.

The Club also has certain social functions each year, one being the joint party with the Aggie Club. 'I'hey also give dinner parties

The Chemistry Club is an organization for the purpose of furthering the interests of students taking Chemistry courses at the College. Meetings are held at various times and topics of general interest along the Chemical line arc discussed by the students. Some of the meetings are taken up by outside speakers or members of the faculty of the Chemistry department.
The Club was organized in 1911 and since that time has had a steady growth in membership. The Chemistry Club is also one of the progressive organizations and help all they can at Tournament time and during other College activities when help is needed.

In 1904 a crowd of disgruntled students, we are told, organized themselves into a something called the "Stags." All additional members were put through an acid test, and endured and enjoyed weird tortures and frolicsome hilarity. The club had its debut at a most appropriate time—right after the mid-year examinations.
Since that time the Stags have acquired a broader significance. It now includes every male student in the College who claims red blood, rigid backbone, and that elixir which College students call "life.” The "Old Pucks" take the "Young Stags" by the horns and try them out under the guise of a Post-Exam celebration. To prove the mettle of the aspirants and to exercise the latent ingenuities of the old members the initiates don the garb and manner of the grotesque figures of city streets, padded cells, and comic supplements.
Ninety-eightand perform the bizarre, the humiliating, and the nerve racking, as per instructions. After a day of vaudevilleish effect for the edification of the populace, the candidates submit themselves to a night of torture which represents the acme of the Engineer's ingenuity and the Aggie’s imagination and which is planned to turn ebony locks gray, to lacerate nerves, and to fill hospitals.
At the conclusion of the ordeal the helpless and emaciated remnants are led to a luxurious banquet hall, where lights and other things glitter, and the celery and other articles of consumption are kept moist. Here the Old Timers and the Xew Comers disperse freely of their wit and humor under the general head of toasts. Revelry is rampant and the calendar replaces the clock as a time piece.
Suffice it is to say that the 1915 Roundup was a hilarious success and fiftv-five fawns were lassoed.

The Does were organized in 1909, the result of a plan to have a celebration after the first semester exams. Each year the Does have their festivities and tortures the same as the Stags.
The parties are held wherever convenient, the last one being held in the Drill Hall, followed by a feed at Hamilton Hall. The members are the regular four-year girl students and each year the older members initiate the Freshmen into their clannish tribe.

The Excelsior Literary Society, although the newest organization among the students of the secondary school, is destined to become the most important. It was organized early in January, 1915. and has the distinction of being the only literary society in Montana State College at the present time, whose success depends upon the efforts of its members, there being no outside speakers.
Fhe purpose of the society is to further the interest in debate and public speaking as well as to secure practice in parliamentary law.
The Excelsior Club meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month, during the school year, and besides the practice in public speaking, does much to create a feeling of friendship among its members.
Much credit is due the girls of the Home Economics department for effecting the organization. Membership is limited to the students in the Home Economics and Mechanical Arts department.

One Hundred Twenty-eightOik Hundred Twenty-nineThe Athletic Council
The former Athletic Association proved to be too cumbersome to handle the growing affairs of College Athletics, and a new plan of government for athletics was submitted to the student body and was accepted by them in the fall of 1914.
The new Council is comprised of two faculty members and two students. The student members are chosen from the two upper classes. The Junior member serves a term of two years, thus having only one member elected every year.
This Council meets every two weeks or at special meetings and at that time the coach and manager of the team, whose season it is, may attend the meetings. This Council has complete control of the regulating of all games and financial expenditures, also the awarding of emblems for services on athletic teams.

One Hundred Thirty-oneFRED BENNION
Athletic Director of Montana State College
A new factor was introduced into athletics at Montana State College last September, and that factor was not a mere fraction but an entity to the nth degree of efficiency which has multiplied Montana State’s athletic successes, relations, and, above all—her influence— which has a product, excellent athletics, efficient teams, sound systems, and progress. Professionally, the factor is known as the new athletic coach—personified it is Mr. Fred Bennion. Bennion is a most valuable asset to the College for four reasons; he is naturally a capable athlete and a skillful builder of clean, strong athletic teams, and of the same kind of spirit. He is a seasoned veteran, both in performing in athletic uniform and in successfully handling athletic teams and situations, he is an all around coach, who can deliver the goods in all branches of sport and unify them into a strong, consistent system: and better still, he has a sincere interest in M. S. C.
One Hundred Thirty-twoBennion was an All Rocky Mountain fullback, of whom Utah still boasts; he still holds the Utah State record in the hammer throw with a mark well over 140 feet and has gathered many points for the University of Utah in the shot-put and even the hundred-yard dash. After his career at Utah U., Fred journeyed to the U. of Pennsylvania, studied physical education and medicine for a year, received tutelage under the world's greatest athletic trainer, "Mike” Murphy, captained the strongest Freshman football team Penn had in years, annexed some track honors, and was booked to return the next year, but lo! That little joy breeder and trouble maker—that despoiler of plans with the cherub countenance, who wears nothing but wings and a bow and arrow, gained a decisive decision over young Bennion, for which he has ever since been grateful.
Mr. Bennion was athletic director of Brigham Young University for two years, in which time he turned out championship basketball teams, and excellent track, baseball and wrestling aggregations. But his Alma Mater lured him to Salt Lake City. For four years he gave the University of Utah athletic teams, which on an average ranked with the best in the West. A Rocky Mountain Conference championship in football, two in basketball, gratifying records in track and baseball, and state titles galore, were captured under Bennion’s regime.
About this time Mr. Bennions reputation reached a certain silvery locked gentleman, who presides over the destinies of a factory of learning known as Montana State College: in fact Mr. Bennion was interested to the sum of quite a few hundred dollars. Xow be it known that Bennion is afflicted with several human ailments, among them, a fondness for agriculture and an avidity for money. Thus, on Sept. 1, 1914. he arrived in Bozeman. Mont., and was henceforth known as Montana State's coach.

Wm. Heagney................. Vice-President
'I'lie “M" Club was organized in the fall of 1912. The membership in this club is limited to men who have won their letter in some branch of College athletics. The club was first formed as a social organization, but it exerts a general influence toward the advancement of athletics.
A banquet is given by the club in honor of the teams at the end of each season, and at this time a general discussion of the events of the season takes place and talks are given by the members of the club.
As this club grows, it is hoped that it will get a place where it will have a direct bearing upon our College athletics.

One Hundred Thirty-sixThe Football Season
It was not long after Coach Bennion issued the first call for football candidates that every student in the school realized that Montana State would be represented by the best gridiron eleven in its history. That opinion was made a fact about the middle of October, when the Utah Aggies crumbled before the brilliant attack of the Montana eleven and suffered an overwhelming defeat. The Utah press proclaimed the Blue and Gold backs as "the fastest backfield ever seen on a Utah field.” and throughout the season, that statement was never questioned.
The climax of the season came on November 7, when the college met the collection of football stars playing for the Missoula institution. Four hundred townspeople and students, an unheard of occurrence in Montana collegiate circles, journeyed those two hundred miles to see their magnificent team in action. The thrills of that contest can never be told on paper. For thirty minutes that wonderful backfield, ably assisted by a wonderful line—outplayed, outgeneraled and outfought the highly touted Missoula eleven. Overwhelming weight, however, gradually crushed the brilliant attack and once again Montana State failed to carry away the championship. The Missoula goal line was never crossed by any other team during the season, and likewise Montana State's line was never crossed by another eleven.
It is needless to say that every other game was won by a decisive score, and the season closed on November 18. when North Dakota bowed before a brilliant attack and defense.
Looking back over a most successful season, the work of Coach Bennion stands out prominently. Early in the season, he gained the confidence of every man on the squad by the undemonstrative, yet firm manner which he squarely faced each problem. The performance of his team, however, speaks more eloquently than written words of his success as a coach.
Montana elevens of former years were never classed with teams of the Rocky Mountain region or Pacific Coast schools. The Montana State team of 1914. proved beyond question that it was on a par with them all. and through that superiority, gained admission into the Rocky Mountain conference.
One Hundred Thirty-sevenEDWARD G. NOBLE. Center.
Although shifted from tackle to center. Ed played even a better game than he did in 1913. His passing was accurate, and his steady playing inspired confidence in the other linemen. On the defensive, he seldom failed to stop his man, and few gains were made through him. Graduation will take an exceptionally brilliant player from the Blue and Gold squad.
G. OTT1XGF.R ROMNEY. Quarter Back.
It is doubtful if a better football man ever played on a Montana field than Ott Romney. As a field general, he has never been equaled by any other Montana player and his individual playing, both in smashing the line and in open field running, was wonderful. Ott was the nucleus of the magnificent 1914 back field, and his work on the Montana gridiron will never be forgotten.
MYRON CARR. End.
Chief was shifted from the backfield to the line by Coach Bennion. and the change materially strengthened the Blue and Gold defense. Carr always forced his man in and smashing the interference, either nailed the runner himself, or made it easy for one of the backs. Chief was injured in the Missoula game, but should be out again with the 1915 squad and should prove to be the same dependable lineman.
RADFORD TAYLOR. Tackle.
Playing in the majority of games against men who outweighed him thirty pounds. Punk proved equal to the task and was the aggressor in every scrimmage. Punk played his best in the Missoula game, when he was pitted against Bentz. who outweighed him sixty pounds. Time and again, however, he evaded the big tackle and stopped the runner. Punk was elected captain of the 1915 eleven and his playing should prove an inspiration to every other man on the squad.
One Hundred Thirty-eightWALTER W. GRIMES, Quarterback.
"Speck’’ was the utility quarterback on the 1914 team and when given a chance, he showed excellent judgment in directing the plays. Lack of weight kept Speck from making a regular berth on the team, but a more determined player never donned the mole skins. Graduation claims another excellent man from the 1914 team.
CYRUS GATTOX. Fullback.
It ought to be enough to say that Cv played fullback on a backfield that was characterized as "the fastest backfield in the Rocky Mountain region;" even such a statement docs not tell his true worth, for Cy was one of the best men on that backfield. For forty-five minutes in the Missoula game, he hurled his one hundred forty-five pounds against a wonderful defense for substantial gains. That display of nerve will never be forgotten, and Montana fans are eagerly looking forward to his appearance on the gridiron this fall.
EUGENE CALLAGHAN. End.
Irish occasionally played end on the 1914 eleven, and during those brief sojourns in the calcium, proved that lie was a football player. As was characteristic of other Montana State ends, Irish was an excellent defensive player. He was able to slip by the interference in a most elusive manner and spoil the chances of a long run by an effective tackle.
JUDSOX COVERT. Halfback.
Competing with exceptional backfield men, Jud did not get a chance in every game, but as a football player, he ranked with the other wonderful backfield material. Covert was a hard man to stop when carry-ing the ball, and was also an excellent defensive player. Very few forward passes were ever completed when Jud was in the game.
One Hundred Thirty-nineHODSOK. Guard.
Although practically a stranger to the game last fall, Hodson learned rapidly, and it was not long before he was considered one of the dependable men on the line. He fought hard in every game and was in every scrimmage. Unless carefully watched, he would slip through the line and block or hurry an attempted punt or forward pass.
C. AI.OXZO TRUITT. Tackle.
Tubbs, as his name indicates, was one of the beefly men of the squad. That beef, combined with his neat appearance in a football regalia earned for him the position of tackle. Tubbs did know football, however, else he would not have been playing on the 1914 eleven, and his work throughout the season stamped him as a consistent, steady lineman.
JAY DUQUETTE, Guard.
Although not as heavy as some of the men he played against, Jay's aggressiveness more than offset any lack of averdupois. Jay played hard during every minute of the game and turned every slip made by an opponent into some benefit for his team. Jay will be back again for the 1915 eleven, and should make an enviable record on the gridiron this fall.
GEORGE R. MILBURX. Halfback.
After a year on the scrubs, Jack went after a regular position last fall, and through his ability as a player, his earnestness and capacity for work, he developed into an excellent backfield man. Jack failed to play in all of the games, but the experience gained on the 1914 squad should make him a strong candidate for a position on the 1915 eleven.
One Hundred FortyLEWIS JOLLEY, End.
Jolley was another man that was shitted from the backfield to the line on the 1914 team. In addition to being: an excellent defensive player, he also went down well under punts. Fumbles made him a rather uncertain receiver of the forward pass, but on holding: the ball he seldom failed to register a gain. A year’s experience should improve his work on the 1915 eleven.
JOHN GARVIN, Guard.
Garvin was the largest man on the team, and used that weight in plugging a hole at guard. Like Hod-son. he had received but little football training, but he developed rapidly during the season, and at all times played a steady, consistent game. Little Eva is another man who will help to carry the Montana colors into the Rocky Mountain conference this fall.
A. CHRISTENSON. Tackle.
Supplied with plenty of beef and some knowledge of the game, Christy earned a utility berth on the 1914 eleven. The only fault with his playing was that he never seemed to take the game seriously, and. until aroused, was rather an uncertain quantity. He had the earmarks of a football man, however, and will be excellent material for the 1915 squad.
ALBION JOHNSON, Guard.
With one year's experience on the scrubs, Johnson proved he knew enough football to land a position as sub guard. A willing worker and a hard fighter were his chief attributes.
One Hundred Forty-ALBERT OS EX B RUG. End.
Mike was another excellent Montana State end and his work throughout the season was of an exceptionally high order. His defensive playing was probably better than his offensive work, and it is doubtful if there was a better tackier on the Blue and Gold squad. Mike is another man who will make a strong bid for this position on the 1915 eleven.
JOSEPH ROUB1DEAUX. Halfback.
When a yard was needed to make it first down, invariably it was Ruby who carried the ball, and invariably. when the mass of players was untangled, the ball was found to be one yard nearer the coveted goal. Besides being a terrific line smasher. Ruby was a wonderful defensive back. A sure tackier and a demon at breaking forward passes, made him feared by his opponents. Ruby will be the second member of that great 1914 backfield that will return to school this fall.

O COTMl R
One Hundred Forty-sixCaptain Wilcomb finished his fourth year of athletics as one of the most valuable assets to college basketball the Blue and Gold has ever had. For three years "Skinney" held down the job at center, but was shifted to the guard's job this season, where he continued to deliver the goods. Slim is of the kind that never says "die,” and it was due to this characteristic that the Blue and Gold quintet lias experienced two of its most prosperous years under his leadership. Wilcomb's absence from next year's lineup will be one of the most serious losses the college five has felt in years.
For three years Montana State has maintained, in Vic Corner, one of the best forwards in the game. In that time "Cot" has probably brought in more scores for the Blue and Gold than any other man. Vic has played two positions on the team, center and forward. But his accurate work in finding the basket, gives him a shade the better of it at the latter job. "Cot" will be in tile lineup next year as captain, and he claims that the championship is already as good as cinched.
Rice, the big guard, is a star of the first water. “Slicker's" clever passing has featured his work for two years at the college and besides this, he has been a heavy scorer. Although his regular job is at guard "Slicker" was called on to fill the central position several times this season, and his work there was just as effective as ever. Rice's ability to adapt himself to any position and to any kind of a game, renders him one of the most valuable men on tlie team.
When Ott Romney registered at the college, the Blue and Gold found in him one of the best all-round athletes she has ever had. After starring throughout the football season. Ott donned a basketball suit and proceeded to nail down a job on the five. He played equally well at guard or forward, and his thorough knowledge of the game made him the "headiest" man on the team. Ott was pitted aga.inst his brother in the Utah series, and his playing during those games will never be forgotten. Romney will be unable to take part in the game next year and his loss is of the most serious nature.
Another good basketball man will leave the State College this spring in the person of Mortimer Lott. For three years. Mort has maintained a berth with the team, his best work being delivered at forward, although his work as a guard was irreproachable. Lott always plays up to form and this feature of his playing made him one of the most dependable men on the squad. As manager of the team for the past year, the college five was given one of the best schedules she has ever had, and as a player. Lott’s work contributed to the successful completion of the schedule.
Roubidcaux gained the reputation of being the "coolest man on the floor.” Xo matter how great the crisis. Ruby never lost his head and he delivered the same consistent basketball at all times. Ruby's football training was a valuable asset to his work on the basketball floor, in that the game never got too rough for him. The Indian was there at any style of play. Next year will find Ruby on the floor once more as a valuable member of the Blue and Gold basketball squad.
Ross played his first year in collegiate basketball with the Blue and Gold this year. Although a little inexperienced at first. Ross developed into one of the fastest guards on the squad. His intercepting of long passes more than once brought the crowd to its feet. Although Ross played in few of the collegiate contests this year, he should have no trouble in becoming a star man in another year, and with three years ahead of him. the Blue and Gold will find a great deal of service in him.
Although he entered but one intercollegiate contest. Cannon put his supreme effort into that game. The little forward played with the reserves all season and subbed for the regulars during that time. Cannon is a speed fiend, and although he was somewhat smaller than the other members of the squad, he was never out of place when playing with big men. Cannon could stand the "gaff” and when the college starts looking for another forward next year. Cannon will fill the bill.
One Hundred Forty-sevenOne Hundred Forty-eightInter-Class Basketball Games
The inter-class games were played in the first part of December, as the coach thought that they would interfere with regular games, if played later, and it would also give him a good chance to get a line on the material for the regular team. A scries of games were arranged so that each team played every other team, and the championship was awarded to the one having the highest percentage at the end of the series.
The first game opened with a deafening howl from the backers of the Juniors and Sophomores. It was nobody's game clear up until the end, and then with a sudden rush of speed the Sophs won the game by one basket.
Then some classy stock came onto the floor in the person of a hilarious aggregation of Freshmen and an aggregation of Seniors. The result was disastrous for the upper classmen. Each team had its supporters and the spirit was so keen that the snake dances often ended in a free-for-all.
In the final game for the cellar championship, the Juniors and Seniors clashed. The Seniors were out for blood and the Juniors were after the game. The Seniors made a bold attack, but were losing ground when they called for their reserves. The reserves presented themselves in a formidable mass in the form of Tubbs. Tubbs rn de a powerful onslaught, but it ended in a roll under the enemy, where he was captured and the Juniors won 27-11.
In the final game for the championship, the Sophs and Freshmen battled. In the previous games these two teams showed that they were evenly matched and betting was about even. At the end of the first half the betting law became evident, and during the rush someone trespassed on Rice's toe. and there was an immediate decrease in the Freshmen stock, as ‘‘Slicker” began a clean-up on their supporters. The game ended with the Sophs champions and Rice still on the warpath.

REVIEW OF SEASON
The fruits of track for Montana State were not quite so luscious as might have been desired. The hand-me-outs for all of the blowing and sweating and the long continued denunciations of such enjoyablcs as day-time sweets and twilight festivities, could have been more numerous.
Onslaught Xo. 1 took place at home, during weather more appropriate for overcoats than track attachments. The crew from Washington State, bedecked in a manner that would induce one to imagine they were representing some underwear establishment, were exceedingly greedy for the spoils of the fray, and only once in a while did they act the generous part.
Onslaught Xo. 2 took place across the divide, and again Missoula got away with the ribbons. With the exception of one or two events, the meet was hotly contested, as is evident by the fact that it closed with four new state records.
Taking into consideration the disadvantages under which the team labored, especially from the standpoint of weather. Montana State was well represented in track, closing the season with two state records and splendid prospects for another year.
One Hundred FiftyMAX KEXCK.
Did you ever sec a jack-rabbit do the kangaroo hop? It’s a sort of rare combination and all the more rare since Max has left us, for he certainly did the next thing to it and never failed to get away with it. even when he had to act to the hurdle time of "one-two-thrce-up and over" with a conference winner. And we have reason to be sorry when we know that what is now said about Max is only history, for Max is now in the past.
Craig hailed front the "Capitol” city with a reputation for winning ways and little doubt remained as to what those ways were when the pistol exploded for the half mile. Can't blame Craig very much for forsaking his associates in the Washington meet, for it being slightly frigid that day. he had to do something to keep warm. But when across the hills he got to smashing things promiscuously. The long and the short of it is. that when those lengthy members of his finally stopped. Montana State had a record to bring home. It is considerable without the pale of gambling to prophesy things about Craig at the coming meet.
Cy has demonstrated the fact that Gallatin valley can boast of other things than Ceretana flour, and that plastic substance which makes profanity spontaneous in drivers of gasoline carriages. Perhaps Cy's specialty is high stepping. Anyway, when it comes to playing anti with a cross-bar he displays a most elevating style. Captain Cyrus has as enviable a record here as in football, and nothing can prevent the usual from occurring in the next meet, excepting perhaps the "Roundup.”
Perhaps there is something significant in the name. Anyway he slipped one over on everybody, especially the Missoula aggregation. But then Steel had no intention of pulling off the stunt he did. An unknown quantity in "Track” until that two-mile episode, where he passed the farewell sign to Olander and his company and left a state record more than ten seconds in the rear. Judging from the past. Steel can hardly be a missing link on the cinders next year.
Jolley is another specimen from Gallatin High, arriving at Montana State accompanied by one or two pieces of jewelry in the shape of medals of the golden variety, and a few articles of wearing apparel in the likenesses of sweaters. Not content with these, however. Jolley took it upon himself to exercise his members in college and succeeded in running down another article for his wardrobe and thereby adding another letter to his alphabet. In the process of gathering points. Jolley always comes in handy.

In former tourneys the state championship has been decided by a process of elimination, in which teams from every accredited high school in Montana took part. However, due to the great increase in the number of such high schools, such a plan became more and more cumbersome, and this year it was discarded in favor of a plan which consisted of dividing the state into nine districts. From each of these districts the two best teams were sent to compete in the tourney.
Another change was made in the manner of conducting the tournament. Formerly competing teams had drawn lots for places the day before the tournament started, and the losers of the preliminary games were out of the running. The winners continued to draw for places, and the final game was fought out between the two teams which, as vet, had not met defeat. In this manner some of the best teams of the meet were eliminated in the early preliminary games. The change in drawing and the new schedule of play made it possible to place eight teams. The final game determined first and second places, and the remaining places were figured on a percentage basis. The new scheme worked to perfection in the tournament just past and gave the best of satisfaction to all the contestants.
One Hundred Fifty-twoOne Hundred Fifty-threeThe Bulletin
When you care to find out “what’s doing,’’ when you want to keep up an acquaintance with things that are happening and students who are being distinguished by calls to the president’s sanctuary, when you have a few minutes to the good and want to put yourself in a favorable place to casually meet some cherished friend of the opposite sex, where do you go? Isn't the Bulletin Board the magnet? Doesn’t the Bulletin Board, smeared with announcements, give you the straight dope? When the scientists of the species—Engineer or Aggie—think it incumbent upon them to dissipate a little more of the appropriation in promulgating their intricate scientific discoveries to an unsuspecting public, what do they do? Ah! yes, they issue a Bulletin.
And so, now that you have turned through the conventional pages of misrepresentations of posed pictures and self-flattering writeups, we offer you the Bulletin, that you may find out “what's doing.’’ that you may just casually meet your friends, that you may form a personal acquaintance with the straight dope. We offer you the summary of our scientific research.
The pictures in the Bulletin were not posed; the smiles were not fastened on like a bow-tie; the scowls are there because students sometime scowl. The news is so honest that it may hurt—some from laughing, some, because it applies salt to a gapping wound.
If honesty is the best policy, believe us. we are politicians. If. to be impartial is to be safe, we are as safe as the First National bank.
We would remind those who care to peruse the Bulletin of the old adage, “He laughs best who laughs, also, when the laugh is on him.’’ For those who arc curious or designing, we would announce that the articles which appear in the Bulletin were written by the well known author, Mr. Anonymous, who failed to give us his address, for he is such a traveler. Some of the persons given great prominence in this section endeavored to buy extra space—but we accepted no bribes.
We would remind you of the old Italian philosopher Demosthenes, who used to admonish his students, to whom he was teaching the Egyptian language. “Si vous je n' aimez pas, sie kennen was sie thun koennen.” or “If you don't like the taste, don’t buy some.”

But W alter still wore celluloid collars, ate pic for breakfast, shined his own shoes, and thought that cabaret rhymed with coquette and he didn't know what coquette meant. His comrades were still pulling the subtle quip ‘I should worry,” well on into 1914 and astounding their gaping audiences. Walter had read of Custer's last stand, but not of the Boston Brave’s spectacular finish. He never bothered about the two kinds of “Balk"—the beer—and the foul in a pitcher's delivery, because he had never heard of either. If Jack Johnson had come to Walter's metropolis and died (and he certainly would have), the village would never have wakened to the fact that “Lil Arthur" was other than a big black coon.
Our hero, for such fate requires we style him. could tell a good Hereford a mile off. but he couldn't distinguish the good points of an El Sidelo from a three for five. He put on his red bow tie and his Sunday shoes and took in the movies once a week, but his father had never taught him that chorus girls were more dangerous than a Jersey bull—because his father didn't know.
Be it known that Sir Raleigh was long on the knowledge of when a horse wants a drink and how to plant oats, but he was mighty short on that most necessary of necessities, worldly wisdom. He was a graduate of “our county high school." but a tyro in the parlor, diningroom and kitchen of the world. Every Sunday he harnessed up the two grays and drove the Sunday attired family to the county church to massacre a few hymns and hear why God loves us. He could assuredly harness a double team, but he couldn’t hitch on a full dress suit on a bet.
He occasionally pulled a deep one on the “old man" or repeated one of the old favorites of forty years in the line of a recitation or geographical fact, and the head of the family thought his young scion doomed to fame.
So. when one of the celebrities of the State College Experimental station appeared at the county seat in his Prince Albert and black tie and play up in stentorian tones and senatorial gestures, the necessity, value and absolute desirability of a scientific farm education, the words fell heavily upon the auditory nerves of Walter’s progenitor. He bethought himself of the glorious past his young offshoot had ahead of him and. upholstered by the fact that war prices on his heavy yields of wheat had bulged out the family sock with the coin of the realm, he decided without flipping up a coin, to send the future Secretary of Agriculture to the best and most practical institution for the dissemination of agricultural learning and the innoculation of college traditions in the country. And after a thorough perusal of the catalogues, selected Montana State as the incubator in which to hatch his son's intellectual possibilities.
When the colored leaves, that the poets rave about, littered the front lawns and fall fell, they packed the big canvas suitcase with Walter’s belongings, precipitated the alloted amount of optical rainfall, wished the parental blessing and hied the family pride off the railway on the disguised hayrack drawn bv the versatile Percherons.
One Hundred Flfty-oijchtOne Hundred Fifty-nineLet us eschew the burning tears which must needs come forth from the orbits of the auditors on the descanting of the narrative of our hero's astonishment, vicissitudes, trials, joys and blunders. Suffice it that in due time the young seeker after learning had given the butcher on the Stub a few jitneys in exchange for some salted peanuts, that some kind facultonian had helped him dray the family traveling bag to a frame domicile presided over by a maiden of doubtful summers, where he was designated to take his cornflakes and coffee and hit the hay. and that lie was duly registered at the State College like all the first class stock.
Walter was like a puppy about three weeks old, his eyes were just opening. He learned to be a good listener and a keen observer. Heglommed onto a little slang, purchased some long-earned collars and a rainbow neck decoration, traded a five spot for some tan shoes, procured a late model bean protector from Louie, the band master-harberdasher and blossomed out. lie was handcuffed to a practical Aggie course, comprising Eng-lish, history, biology, economics and drill, and a course in animal types. For a while he found the going heavy, the track muddy and a lump in his throat. He took it all too damned seriously. He went to all his classes and studied like a parson. He never was late to the steak and mashed potatoes—perhaps because he was getting wise to the doctrine of the survival of the fittest. He was homesick—oh, that heavy, haunting feeling that gets a half nelson on your hopes and puts the chloroform on your happiness.
Hut he had the making of a regular guy and he evolved. The sinister glances of the Sophs, the threats of the loud guys, and the persuasion of his fellow sufferers
finally placed a green cap on his skull. He was husky and was elected on the frog-pull team, and after being dragged about a rod into the murky water, which hadn't seen a frog for so long it took him for one, and then dragged out again by his revived teammates—then taking full part in a glorious victory—after all this he was baptized a “go-getter." Soon he started stuffing classes, bluffing the Profs, and learning the college cheers. He bought a hod and blue and gold stocking cap. He kidded with the guys and, one night, the old cut-up, he took a choice bit of Freshman poultry to a college hop and ragged like hell.
As time went on he learned to inhale, he risked a week's board on a football game and came out on the short end of the horn, but game to all appearances. He called the institution’s president, “Prexv." he developed a great ingenuity for compiling lists of books and lab fees and doctor bills to send home for the perusal of the immediate male ancestor and usually tapped the till successfully; in fact, he spent some library. After paying his Booster extortions, posing for a couple of Annual photos, being reported twice, appearing in the gladitorial arena in the interclass basketball riot and emerging with no other evidence than two tinted optics and a bruised pen-wielder and, after taking on a few,
One Hundred SixtyOne Hundred Sixty-oneundergoing the rites and wrongs of the Stags, he was declared baked. He was an honest to God college gink. He bore the stamp of approval, the insignia of a collegiate assinity. Why, it got to be nothing for him to breeze into the Tuxedo, let his Melachrino dangle rakishly from the corner of his mouth, grab a cue and give it a careful once over, like all the great billiard kings, and pipe "rack up the ivories, kid—I guess we will romp through a string.” Sometimes he was even so careless as to carry his own “makings.”
Anyway, he made his share of noise while eating a good-sized hole in the old man’s revenue and when the final exams swirled down on the helpless students, they hit him like a Kansas cyclone. He recovered quickly and received twelve hours of uncontaminated credit, bringing his total for the year up to twenty-three, bade the he's and she’s "so-long,” smiled retrospectively as he cast his canvas bag on the waste heap and packed a tortoise leather traveling bag, took out his shoe horn and worked his way into his English suit, and hied back to the farm.
When he slumped into the rural regions, his mother was too groggy with gladness to be stunned by the transformation; she fell on his neck—and the old man came almost following suit for different reasons. He had glimmed the cigarette, the piebald tic, the affectionate suit and he thought he had discerned evidence of a hirsute adornment on Walter’s upper lip.
As they rode into town, the village girls sighed: "Ain’t he swell,” the village boys gave him a merry "Ha! Ha!" and the old man started talking about the white-belted sow’s last litter. “Not white-belted, technically speaking.’' suggested Walter, “Hampshire is the name of the breed.” “I tell you, son. they've been white-belted since yon river was a ditch and I tell ye they’ll alius be. Is that what I sent ye to college for?” Every few seconds Walter ran amuck and once when lie mentioned Mendel’s law, the fond parent almost passed away.
Walter's love for the overalls and new mown had waned. During the hot months, he developed quite a knack of dodging the labor. And funny as it seems, just when he was about to go to the fields to work, it rained. Anyway the sire was fed a good ration of that gaff and thrived. The future landlord talked his father into relieving an agent of a Ford and occupied his time learning how to jump fences and climb trees with the little tin rambler, while keeping the secrets of its mechanism a mystery to the old gentleman.
Just about the time that the sire's patience and tolerance were reaching the end of the limit, Walter came through with a keen hunch. He got the head of the family out among the hay-cocks for a confidential conversation. He told the old man that he was in touch with the latest wheat prices and that wheat had jumped eight points that day. Why not buy up the neighbor's crop and make a cleaning? The old man ran his fingers through his facial foliage, then winked his left eye, spat the extract of Sweden's greatest export through his Santa Claus, and did the pendulum swing with his right leg with the accent on the middle, and said, "by gosh, that’s a slicker." And pretty soon the old gentleman was exchanging the time of day over neighbor’s rail fences and accommodating them with a nice price for their wheat. He cleaned up heavily and reinstated the youthful Morgan to first place in the estate. “Ye shall go to college as long as ye wish, son." quoth he and the son after several years of miscellaneous frolicking, drew down the official diploma and was shipped "back home” labeled, "a wise guy!"
Moral: M. S. C. is no hot house for frail flowers, nor a storage plant of canned facts. It is an institution for training, a polishing parlor, a "process of evolution.”

One Hundred Sixty-fourLocal Color
The proper way to write up this subject would be to write up a theme-reader's dream with soft music, campus romance thrown in with dizzy verbs and colored adjectives to wash it down. Another way would be to twist things around to get the right Montana State potpourri (French word for some kind of hash).
On entering the institution, or temple of knowledge, from the north side, the first thing to greet the eve of the stranger is the temple of fussing, in the form of the girl's dormitory, upon whose cold steps can be seen a weary "fusser.” During cold weather, troops of fuzzy-capped engineers and an occasional daredevil in a mackinaw may be seen running wildly about, waving their arms and running about like a bunch of Allies. Later, as the weather warms up and the bock beer signs go up. the number on the campus increases.
If looking for typical Montana students, a stranger could find more of them in a large laboratory devoted to pool (5) and billiards (9). a few blocks away from the campus. Here large numbers of earnest young students may be found at any time of the day, developing their latent abilities in this fascinating subject. The library is devoted to the feminine part of the institution, and a few fussers. for within this place there is no place to expectorate the saliva enticed forth by the stuff that made Copenhagen famous.
Montana State has about eight hundred students, no fraternities or sororo-ties. and has the best bumming teams in the northwest, and an absence committee that could run down a “cutter” in Siberia. Her Aggie department is the strongest in the United States.
When the athletic teams leave to play an opponent, the rooting squad follows on the next freight. The regular hoboes live in the wheat fields until the game is over and there is again room on the rods.
Montana State has bushels of pep and will soon have it spread all over the Rocky Mountain division.
One Hundred Sixty-five“THE FATE WE DESIRED”
One Hundred Sixty-sixThe Legend of Sleepy Hollow
One Act, by Burnhard Pshaw
Scene—The History Recitation Room.
Time—Four o'clock on the regular day for class officers’ meeting.
Dramatic Personae—Will be named as they appear.
On looking into the history lecture room one may see the President, a short gray haired man, wearing a blue suit of fashionable cut. He is humming a bar front “This Place Is But a Vale of Tears,” and looking anxiously at the door.
Enter the Registrar, who carries a roll book.
Registrar—What will be brought up today?
President—Well, we'll wait and see what they bring up.
Registrar—It’s four o'clock now.
President—-Well, maybe the bells haven’t rang. That old clock don't work well always. I told Jack to fix it, but he says he can't. Jack's a great fellow, isn't he.
The reply of the Registrar is lost to the audience by the banging of the door
and the shuffling of feet. Enter the following:
The Dean of Agriculture, as if he were entering a doctor’s consulting room.
The Archbishop of Engineering, as if he can hardly spare the time.
The Chancellor of the English department, with his pockets bulging with
ropics of the Belgrade Journal, The Bingville Bugle, The Big Hole Breezes, The Salesville Astonisher and The Bozeman Daily Chronicle. A few clippings crowded out of the pockets have found refuge in his hat and are hanging like curls, around his head.
The Professors of Electric. Civil and Mechanical Engineering come trooping in. The Professor of Mathematics enters with the Agronomist busily engaged in demonstrating that the whyness of wherefore is the underlying principle of the growing of grain.
Others, too numerous to mention, come stringing in.
President—As you all know, this is the first Wednesday in the month.
Professor (aside)—What a remarkable memory for dates.
President (continuing)—And as that is the regular time for faculty meeting, we have met. I sent notice to all of you. Did you get them? I suppose you did, because you are here. If anyone isn't here, it should be because he didn't get his notice. If you get your notices you know what's on them. Mr. Wilson, call the roll.
Richter—Dean Richter is here.
President—Miss Harkins came to me and asked to be excused; she’s judging a bread-baking contest down at Belgrade and had to leave on that three-thirty.
Chorus of all—Three-forty, isn’t it?
President—Well three-forty perhaps. It used to be three-thirty. I remember, because one time I was coming in on that train with Mr. Jones
One Hundred Sixty-of Missoula. Mr. Jones is a hardware dealer over there, perhaps some of you know him. Did you ever know him Dean Linfiekl? No; well, anyway, he has been in the hardware business for a number of years and as 1 was going to say, when we came to Bozeman he looked at his watch and said “three-thirty—just on time." But maybe its three-forty now. Let’s see where we were, oh yes; Miss Harkins is not here she left on that train for Belgrade to judge the bread-making contest. She’s absent.
Wilson picks up the roll book from the floor, finds his place again and proceeds to call the roll.
President—Any business to come before the faculty at this meeting?
Cooley (speaking with great feeling)—I’ve had something on my mind for some time—
Brewer (aside to Tallman)—That’s a piece of news all right.
Tallman (aside to Brewer)—Wait and see if he proves it.
Cooley (continuing)—What I've been thinking about is that as an institution we are facing a great need, and that is the need of some course of study that will unify our educational system here on the hill. At the present time the members of the agricultural faculty are trying to make farmers out of our boys; the members of the engineering faculty are trying to make engineers out of the students. Professor Cobleigh is trying to make chemists, and Professor Brewer is trying to make writers; of course all these efforts are directly or indirectly connected with biology, but they are not closely connected. I was thinking the other day of the honey bee.
Atkinson (aside to Miss Cehrs)—Stung!
Cooley (continuing)—The bee is an insect from which we may all learn some important truths. Now I come to think of it. I believe that most of what I know I got either directly or indirectly from the bees. The word bee is the first word we learn to conjugate.
Brewer—Mr. President, I arise to ask for an explanation as to whether Professor Cooley is talking about a bug or a language.
Richter—I would suggest, President Hamilton, that for all practical and necessary purposes, there is no difference.
Cooley—We are talking about a course gentlemen—a course.
Tallman (aside to Ham)—Of course!
Ham (to Tallman)—Pretty coarse!
Bishop (leaning over)—Chorus? Who said anything about the chorus.
Cooley (continuing)—And a course in Massachusetts means a course of study. Now. few engineers realize the value of the bee to an engineer. A bee can fly across a swamp that the engineer cannot build across, but the engineer knows that where there is a bee-line, a line can be.
(Nothing is heard in the room but the hurrying pencils of the engineers, who are nuts for valuable suggestions like this.)
Then too. the bee is indispensable to agriculture. Everyone knows how our clover crops are dependent—
Whipple, Swingle, Atkinson, )—Old stuff! Old stuff!
Flint, Martin and Linfiekl (in unison) ) Why we knew that—
Cooley (continuing)—That shows some improvement Mr. President. When I came here that fact was comparatively unknown to the members of the agricultural faculty. And then for the chemist—
One Hundred Sixty-eight(Cobleigh wakes with a start at the sound of the word and feels in his pocket for his data on the efficiency of the Department of Chemistry, Food, Water. Air, Fire and Wind Analysis; but sees that the speaker is in the family and rests assured that the course is not to usurp the inspection of honey and honeycomb as carried on by the department.)
Tallman (interrupting speaker)—Mr. President. it is now six o'clock and I have council meeting tonight.
Cooley (sinking into his seat)—Some other time then, gentlemen.
Richter (arising with uplifted hand, serenity oozing from every line of his face)—If you please, Mr. President, I wanted to bring up the matter of the steam engine that the X. P. wished onto us one day when I was looking the other way. Of course the engine is quite an addition to our engineering equipment. From it we have been able to learn how to—
Atkinson—Railroad things through class officers’ meetings.
President—Xo punning, if you place, Mr. Atkinson, pungent punishment for the punsters has always been my motto.
Richter (continuing)—Even if the college doesn't use the engine now, it might be useful some day. but the chief of police has served notice on me that I am maintaining a junk pile on improved property and something must be done. I have an offer from the Secretary of the American Museum of Antiquated Machines. He says he will accept the engine for $500.00. But of course—
Miss Baldwin—Mr. President. I move we accept and tender the Museum a vote of thanks.
AH but Richter (in unison)—Second the motion.
Jack the Janitor (appearing at the door)— Wot in blazes air the hull of ye doin’ in here at this time. Git out o' yere: I've got me sweepin' to do. (Starts sweeping vigorously and all go out.)
A Dorm fusser’s idea of heaven: To be able to keep her out until ten-thirty p. in. When a gambling game isn’t a gambling game: When it's Punk Taylor’s deal.
Our idea of holding stakes: Ask ‘'Shanks” Border.
Our idea of nerve: To take a queen, whom you have just met. to the “Yellow Ticket.” Our idea of when a smile’s a crime: When Miss Forrest does.
Our idea of a vacuum: Prcxy’s economics.
Our idea of nothing to do: A Senior Aggie.
Our idea of slavery: Take Mechanics under Prof. Conkling.
One Hundred Sixty-ninePunk or Noble
It was in Missoula. Another line smasher and the biggest grizzly bear embued with a desire to walk away with the hazel nut. But he was destined to be disappointed. Before he started, down he went. Lovely play! But there was disagreement on the side lines. Enthusiast—Punk! Punk! Punk! Disputant—It's not punk. It's noble! Enthusiast—Noble nothing. It's Punk. Disputant—But I tell you, it was noble!
Enthusiast—Maybe, madam, but it was Punk!
(The hero of the play approached and is accosted.)
Disputant—Oh, my boy, you arc just noble!
Punk—No, ma'am. I am Punk. Disputant—Silly boy, still you, you are just noble!
Punk—But, madam, I am not Noble, I am Punk—Punk Taylor.
Disputant—Perhaps you are a punk tailor, but you must believe me, you are noble!
The game went on and is a thing of the past, but between you and me, reader, no matter how badly she wanted to call Punk, noble, no matter how much Punk himself wanted to he called noble, nor how much he deserved to be called noble, still Punk was not Noble, for there was but one Noble in the game, and Noble certainly wasn't Punk; so, after all. Punk is just Punk, and Noble is just Noble.
What’s the Use?
What is the use of living when this life is not worth while?
Man’s day is brief; his life submerged within the rank and file.
The Co-ed Hop has come and gone, and so the Junior Ball;
The football season's over, and the score beyond recall.
The things you got upon the "tree” or in your “hose” are soiled; Vacation's but a memory—New Year resolutions foiled—
The water pipes are frozen hard: we've had stewed corn three meals; There's slippery places on the walks and corns upon my heels.
The melancholy days have come, the saddest of the year—
It's up to you to “cram” all night—“exams" are nearly here.

O. E. Lester Cole has an immaculate young soul And a tidy young man is he;
Me never will rag, or on a pipe drag, But he certainly can study.
O, Young Master Cole, is on the Aggie roll And he writes for our School Weekly;
He got kicked by a calf and made all the boys laugh.
And once he went on a "green spree.”
They talked about her beauty,
And they raved about her hair ;
They said she had such pretty teeth.
And oi splendid family, their belief; But they did not tell us where.
Her shoulders were so well put up, And her shape was sure A-l;
They met her three times every day,
And paid her attentions in a manly
And they sighed when they were done.
Their names were Lott and Xoble, But queer rivals did they seem.
They both paid calls at the very same hours,
And they never mentioned cabs or flowers—
And she furnished the ice cream.
We wanted to solve the mystery,
So we set a trap in advance:
One morn at five they both arose
And stole away on their tiptoes, And now we know the deep romance.
They made their way up to the college.
A scandal's in the making now;
But they passed the Dorm and made their way
Out to the silage and the hay—
She was their registered Holstein cow.
One Hundred Seventy-oneOFFICIAL ACCOUNTS OF THE 1916 MONTANAN
I heard a sob, I saw a tear,
Someone sick at heart I feared;
So, with my hand I touched her brow And asked so gently: prithee lass, Why weepest, why so sad art thou? “Oh, knowest not," said she to me, “Why all the gloominess should be? Look thou upon the placard here And judge why all is dark and drear." I looked, I read, these startling words And pity in my heart did surge, These were those that caused the gloom:
“Women meet not this afternoon!"
Published as an anesthetic to the multitudinous murmurings, pestiferous prattlings and rumbling rumors, instigated and fostered by the jealous foes of clean journalism.

One Hundred Seventy-twoConsoling Recollections
Amazing has been the results of city beautiful campaigns, but it takes a board of regents to do the marvelous. Why it was done, nobody knows. The fact is, that in that wonderful institution of mysterious curiosities, one will find a Lane in the Art department, a Ford in the Home Economics department, Snow in the Civil department, Larks in the Boiler room. Barnes in the Chemistry department. Ham in the Physics department, and a formidable Forrest in the Library. 'I bis would not be so bad perhaps, if you could walk on the Lane, but you cant; if you could make a Snow-ball, but you can't : if you could play in the Parks, but you can't; if the stock rooms were in the Barns, instead of the Barns being in the stock room, but they aren't: if the Ham was tender, but it isn't; if the Ford had wheels, but she hasn’t; if the Forrest was green, but it isn't. When one looks for consolation, he finds nothing but aggravation.
Some Things You Will Never See
Evelyn Kennard alone. Jeannette Kelly mad. Miss Forrest asleep.
Prof. Conkling at a rally. An honest election.
A bar in the Main Hall. A crowd at a debate.
A men's gymnasium.
A new main building.
Cobleigh without a shave.
Prof. Swingle running.
A Senior Aggie at an eight o'clock. Joe Roubideaux fussing.
A pretty girl in the Engineering building.
Another defeat by Missoula.

One Hundred Seventy-fourChemistry
Di l you ever study Organic Client In the aroma of the lab.
Mid Bunsen flames and water jets And colors from black to drab?
Did you ever learn the formula For acetic anhydride?
And attend the sombre funeral When Potassium Clo. died?
Did you ever meet Miss Ethel Ether?
Was she in the volatile state?
D’you know how many oxygen atoms The Sodium Carbon-ate?
When you oxidized your alcohol,
Did little Miss Alde-hyde?
Did you ever try the tasting test For Potassium Cyanide?
Do you know they squeeze as much alcohol
From half a bushel of spuds,
As a rounder can soak on Saturday night From a gallon of foaming suds?
Did you ever know it was wiser To seek the professor and ask.
Before you drop straight sodium Into a sulphuric flask?
Amyl acetate’s like banana.
And a sugar's an alcohol;
But you can’t get soused on candy. Nor grow fruit in a beaker at all.
The class this year is a hummer,
It is certainly systematized;
A committee performs the experiment And a few have the notes standardized.
They have run a test to perfection,
To find the carbon content in Cole; They have found the melting point of Snow,
And can dance the glycerole.
Dean Linficld’s son's been persistent, Finding the affinity of Ethyl;
While three fair girls have looked for months
For the man who put “me” in methyl.
Nordquist’s an expert on alcohols;
Scott makes brown precipitate;
Myron Carr's concocting a lotion To grow hair on his shiny pate.
Cooley keeps the ices cool,
And Bullock spreads the bull;
While Manning pours in a test tube.
And McSpadden tells when it’s full.
Romney lost his balance When he put on an extra gram.
And Langhor broke a distilling flask. Then broke the silence with "damn."
Fox spent an entire morning Trying to make his metal ring stand, And we heard a talkfest on molecules Between Jorgenson and Strand.
Kinsella was selling his text book.
And Cook was cooking soap:
While Donald Havens was betting That a Little Tom isn't rope.
Hightrce took a sand bath:
Cobleigh’s story was making us laugh: While Davidson looked like a barber In white coat with his barber's gaff.
O. you ought to take Organic Chem, And draw graphic formulae;
Then pick up your trusty fountain pen And discover C H3 Cl.
THINGS WE ARE PAID TO TELL
That the Library is no place for fussing.
That Proxy is paid to run the Institution.
That Pill Davidson is President of the Senate.
That Evelyn vs. Al. will be in June.
That Roy Malsor says, “I am going to marry the next girl I go with.”
That man is the only living thing that will chew tobacco.
That Women's Assembly is for women.
That this book was edited by College students.
THINGS WE ARE PAID NOT TO TELL
That Bert Clarkson has been married for three years.
That the Exponent Editor’s worries arc confined to "381-R please.”
Where we got our snap shots and how.
That Carl Morgan likes to step out with the other fellow’s girl.
Why “Slim” Wilcomb got engaged to Jessie last year at Christmas.
Why the girls like "Slicker.”
Why Ott Romney goes to the Dorm instead of writing to Salt Lake.
One Hundred Seventy-fiveAdvice to Prospective Dorm Fussers
10 Cents a Copy—Worth $10.00
The Dorm is the big plain rectangular brick edifice which looks like a jail or sanitarium. The windows are to look out of. not into, and they arc not provided with ropes. The front porch has two stone stairways which sneak into the main stairway from the sides, so that in case of a hurried exit, you are sure to run headlong into the stone wall which separates them. Each stairway is made up of a deceptive number of odd steps. That is why most of the Dorm fussers are lame.
'1'hc front door is a ponderous, awkward structure, which prevents hasty departure and silent entrance. It is always well guarded. Never enter too precipitously or you may knock down a bevy of the Dean’s assistants. Always ring the door bell before entering. It is not only polite, but sometimes the girls run through the hall without their coats on.
When you enter someone takes your hat for security. They give you no hat check, so sometimes you get back a real good one. Always tell the girlie with the pad of paper the name of the fair damsel on whom you would shower your affections for the evening. After the third call this is unnecessary, for they have your number. When they ask you to have a seat, do not sit on the fireplace or on the mantle, nor on the third chair from the left—it is broken—and the next one to it has been the seat of many an accident. Three engagements have been made in it. Do not be surprised about anything any of the girls may know about you or ask you. You know how news will spread, even among the girls.
No. Miss McKinney is not the Dean of Women, nor is Miss Borthwick Dean Herrick’s sister.
Yes, the Hall has only one telephone, but is profusely supplied with dictographs and talking machines.
Never try to steal a flower. They arc made of cloth and are nailed to the table. The room to the right was built for a reception room, but has since been dedicated to Miss Kcnnard and Mr. Eberle. Yes, they keep such steady company that when one of them is alone, it’s just like beer without foam—not natural.
Don’t be surprised, if. when you are ready to go, your girlie has to write a chapter or two on that pad on the table. She’s just giving the Dean all the evidence against you that she can think of. You know, the Dean's afraid the girls may get lost. It gets so darksome nights.
When you get down town, you had better look at your watch and start back. Maybe you've got time to see one reel of the Gem
One Hundred Seventy-sixfeature. Xo, they don't pay any more attention to time at the Dorm than you and I would to a gift of a million dollars. Xo. not a bit. Why, a Dorm girl would every bit as soon stay out after ten o'clock as drown. Xo, not ten-fifteen, just ten. They have seven clocks in the Dorm parlor and ninety-four scattered about promiscuously. All of them arc fast—they set them by suspicion. Well, anytime the Dean or any of her corps thinks it’s ten. or suspects it’s ten. or knows it ought to be ten. or wants it to be ten—she approaches any fusser on the premises, showing no partiality, and favors each and all with a pretty (?) smile, and—Oh, God!—a sweet “goodnight.” “Goodnight' doesn't mean that the Dean and her assistants are going to retire—mercy no. It isn’t a wish that you may enjoy a goodnight either. They’re not trying to flirt with you and they didn’t think you said “goodnight” first. “Goodnight” has only one meaning, and that’s “GOODNIGHT”! If you’re green and don't tumble on the third trial, don't be surprised if the Dean approaches you with a hat. which very much resembles your own. It's a sweet way they have of accommodating you.
Whether you're in the middle of a conversation or about to make a date, or no matter how well the evening is progressing, you have just exactly one choice. Try not to swear audibly before getting down the stairs.
Some of the Senior girls, who have proved faithful and worthy of trust for three and one-half years, may remain out until ten-thirty p. m. by the Main street clock, twice during the second semester of their last year.
The Dorm is located so close to Main street that you can’t quite freeze to death in getting there. Any zephyr down town is a full grown cutting wind around the Dorm. In winter the temperature never gets below fifty below. Once, the car ran in the evening, but it so surprised all the fussers, that they all missed it.
One Hundred Seventy-sevenThe Sophomore Picnic
The class of '17 this year decided to have a picnic. The chosen day dawned cold and stormy. Snow was feared; however, by noon the clouds cleared away and a warm breeze was blowing, reminding one of Oriental Monsoon(son). Some of the boys wished to shoot the college cannon to show their joy. but were unable to find the powder.
They decided to go to a woodland park up Bridger canyon and to leave the question of refreshments to the Cook and Steward. The latter decided to call upon the class for Rice and to have the Bowman and Fowler take Craig-Jorgenson along and shoot some wild chickens to eat.
Some difficulties arose in getting wagons and Manning them, but the class was Mary and Jolly and out for a good time, so did not care a Whit what happened.
At last everything was in readiness and every Truman helped the girls into the wagons and the start was made. They soon left the town behind and passed along the country road, where several incidents occurred Worth mentioning.
Ursula saw some flowers, Margarites and Mcrigolds growing beside the road, Bullock got out and got them for the girls. A little farther several blue Jays flew up, startling the horses. One of the drivers said. “Fin liettle more Undent horses would go zo Rapids ve all go in vuin ditch.” Just before reaching the canyon one team came almost running over a little girl dressed in a long mothcr-Hubbard. which tripped her. The canyon was beautiful with the Whiteside of the cliffs showing against the dark Green of the forest.
As soon as the camping site was reached Jackman was sent to Russel some wood to start a fire with. Instead of wood he secured some Cole, which was easy, as lie did not have to have an ax to get it with. Two hunters went out to get some chickens, but all that they saw was a Fox, which they refrained from shooting for Class reasons. The cooks had to cook Rice alone, but flavored it with Port (Havens). Ada said if they could use wine to flavor it. why not Beer, but Thomas told her to March.
McSpadden got too close to the fire and burned his coat. Ruth said the Taylor May be able to mend it; Grace said: Mac. I thought you had some sense.
Janelle lost her pin. which had a Ruby and two Opals in it. Everyone was deeply concerned and wished to help her find it. As all Kneale down to search, a Strand of Mary’s hair blows into Sholten's face, but with a laugh and a blush, she puts it back into place. Just after Helen found the pin and all were getting ready to sit down to eat. an old farmer came up and said. "I-Kin-sell-a box of apples to yer fer a dollar.” Of course it was bought. All afternoon members ot the class were seen Pcrring apples.
After lunch was over, some games and contests were started, one of which was to see who could bend a tree to earth the quickest. Several boys took part, but Linfield and Cooley were in the lead. The teamsters called out to Bcrtil. "BF.nit Bcn-it! By Garvin !vin.man,vin!"
When Hie day was over and weariness and Langhor had come upon the Xoblc class of 17. they started for home. On the way they found the road torn up to put in a Culvert. One of the horses slipped and fell. They got him up and found lie had a raw-knee (Ronne). Gatton gave a Cv and said that's Punk luck. They soon reached Main Street, where they saw many displays in the Milliner's windows and soon they passed the Luther an-Kirk. where evening services had begun. A Christian Son of a well known Carpcntier was just going in.
All considered that they had had a very pleasant day and were glad to reach home, where it first occured to them that they would have a Bill to meet on the morrow.

One Hundred Eighty-sixTRAGEDIES
The poet who proclaimed the dog the most faithful of all animals did not give the lover a square deal. The faith of both is instinctive rather than rational, but is rigid and unswerving.
Now Mortimer Lott, popularly known as Sir Shaplcy, has exhibited one of the marks of greatness in winning the affections of a sweet little lady of whom e'en Sir Launcelot would be boastful. And Mortimer is a lover, we take it. because when questioned about his intimacy with Cupid, lie dons a silly grin and answers no questions. But he is a fortunate lover, in that fate played right into his hand and slipped him a grand opportunity to prove his devotion.
When his demure fairy answered the lure of sunny California's inviting beach retreats and left Mortimer to shiver through the Gallatin's winter winds and wade Bozeman's muddy streets alone, our young hero bore up admirably under the strain. His life seemed empty, though. There was little to strive for. little to look pretty about—so he allowed his whiskers to grow and flourish, wore soft collars and swore softly. His mirthful giggle and melting smile retreated in favor of a lugubrious countenance. The days grew long—but Mortie remained true. Instead of fussing the other girls he only sighed. He had but three friends in the world—his pipe, the postman and his registered Holstein at the State College. He often paused in mid-stream or in the parlor or in the class to catch the message of the wild waves.
Twice a day he wept on the blue uniform of the kind postman, who brought neatly scribed epistles, labeled Long Beach. Once the postman slipped up and Mortie lost sleep and weight and said mean things. But Shapley penned as well as pined.
Finally the Maid of the Mist reached the Home Watering Tank and Mortimer was there to meet her, thin, but game to the core and wearing a new tie. He had remained true.
Mortimer's health is now quite pleasing to the physician and he may be able to get around to receive his diploma.
The scene is in the Biology lab. With the Home Economics crowd:
Professor Spaulding's Biology 1.
Of which he is so proud.
When the governor’s niece looked in the vat She found the family's big pet cat:
Its Angora fur was straight and dark—
Puss had ceased to pur in that slimy tank.
Miss Mildred added some salty tears To its alcoholic bath.
While “Swede" Xordquist, to save serving years.
Took a hidden and winding path.
Miss Frances Manley, a classy dame And Cyrus Gatton of athletic fame.
Were off for a moonlight stroll. While these young fussers were extremely gay.
The fairy's petticoat got in her way,
It had slipped from her control.
Now. if you had been Miss Manley.
Just what would you have done?
If you had been Cy Gatton.
Would you have stayed or run?
Well, Frances pointed to Mt. Baldy And raved of the beautiful view.
And Cy fastened his optics there— There was nothing else to do.
And when young Cyrus turned around There was his Frances charmingly gowned—
With not a stitch awry.
Now how she did it Cy doesn’t know,
And neither do you or I—maybe?
