HELENA HALL E, THE ANNUAL BOARD, take pleasure in presenting to the many friends of Wesleyan, this, our second Annual. We have tried to make this even better than the previous issue and in our en- deavor have aimed to help in the struggle for a "Greater and Better Wesleyan." We, therefore. take this opportunity to thank all those, who in any Way, have contributed to the success of this publica- tion, knowing that your efforts shall not have been spent in vain and that in the mid-dayfs rays of Wesleyan's success, you Will be able to look back and thank God for the opportunity you have had in the building of an institution Whose aim is for the very best. Qbuiaurunre im' If thou hast run with the footinen, And they have wearied thee, How canst thou strain the prize to gain With the coursers strong and free? And if in the land thou trustest, The tranquil land of peace, Thou canst not control thy weary soul Till the test of strength shall cease, Then what wilt thou do in the swelling Of Jordan's waters wide, When boundaries fail and the floods prevail In torrents of scorn and pride? And if on thy homeward journey, When trials are scarce begun, Thy heart grows faint, and sore complaint Thou sighest for rest unwon. Then how canst thou brave the shadows That yet will darken the way, Or walk through the gloom that seems the doom Of every cheering ray? How canst thou bear thy burden With strength and courage gone, Or lend a hand to this alien land To help thy brother on? If the hope of thy heart is fading, And the light of life is dim, If the shadows fall, and the night's dark pall Hides even a planet's rim, If thy heart must ache in silence And grieve in the dusk alone, And sadly dream no grief can seem In bitterness like thine own, Then say to thy soul, "Have courage, For God is thy strength and cheer!" Thy hope in Him need never dim, And thou to Him art dear. Page Eigh, T h c P 1' fi C kv Z y P e an 1' CHARLES LINCOLN BOVARD, Ph. B., D. D. Normal Collegiate Institute. Illinois Wesleyan University, Ph. B. Moores Hill College, D. D., 1908. President Montana Wesleyan, 1911. Dr. Bovard has devoted his entire time for the last two years entirely to the endowment campaign and, to our sorrow, we have seen only a little of this big, jolly, cheerful gentleman. He wasespecially honored by the Montana Conference, when it elected him as Ministerial Delegate to the General Conference at Saratoga, N. Y. He has been striving ardently and diligently for a greater Wesleyan. MISS MARY EVA FOSTER, M. A. Portland University, A. B., 1893. Portland University, M. A., 1896. Montana Wesleyan University, 1899. Aside from her strenuous class-work consisting of Latin, German and a class in Greek, Miss Foster has always found time to be influential in the personal affairs of the student who cared to find a close, helpful friend. She has woven herself into the Y. W. C. A., which owes its power and influence largely to her originality. TheP1'iClcly Perm' PageNi,,e PAUL M. ADAMS, M. A. Northwestern University, A. B., 1899-Phi Beta Kappa. Northwestern University, M. A., 1900. Professor in Montana Wesleyan, 1905-1911. Vice-President Montana Wesleyan University, 1914. Prof. Adams has devoted his time to the internal management of the school in addition to head- ing the department of mathematics and science. He is thoroughly equipped and renders consciencious class room ser- vice. He is faculty advisor for the Y. M. C. A., and is always a ready and helpful council in those things that have to do with the interests of this department of student life. ALBERT C. HOOVER, B. S. Northwestern University, B. S., 1912. Montana Wesleyan Universiey, 1913. Aside from his capacity as a preacher at Radersberg, Professor Hoover has acted as registrar and athletic manager for the Univer- sity together with. his regular class room work comprising the classes in English, History and Elocution. He has never been too busy to assist in student activities when called upon. He is faculty advisor for the Athletic Association and once more the student body sought his services and advice this year in producing the "Prickly Pear". page Ten T 71. 0 P 1' lil P k 131 P e af 1' MISS MARY SHERMAN CALDWELL, Mus. Bac. Graduate in Voice and Public School Music, Post Graduate in Piano, Tri-State College, Angele, ind., 1912. . The instruction of Miss Caldwell as a voice and piano teacher has gradually grown in popularity since the time when she came to us. She organized and directed the male quartette whose services were much in demand during the past year. We believe Miss Caldwell has a brilliant future in musical circles. MRS. CARL NELSON. University of Minnesota, A. B. 1905-Phi Beta Kappa. One year McPherson's,McPhearson, Kans. One year Thief River Falls, Minn One year Little Falls, Minn. Six years So. H. S., Minneapolis. Montana Wesleyan University, 1915 She is the popular wife of the pastor of one of the prominent Helena churches and has given part time to us because of her love for the Work. She will beyond a doubt devote more of her time to the school next year, a fact that causes us to rejoice. T h 13 P 1" fi C lc Z y P e cc 1' page Elem, HAZEL COFFEE, B. S. Montana. State College, B. S., 1915. Montana Wesleyan University, 1915. As is elsewhere stated the De- partment of which Miss Coffey is the head is the most popular in school, especially among the gen- tlemen folk. She is a thorough teacher and is highly esteemed by all who know her because of her sincere and kind-hearted manner. She has also supplied the demand for violin instruction. MISS CLARA KITTO. Butte Business College, 1915. Montana Wesleyan University, 1915 Miss Kitto's pleasing personality has endeared her to the students in a remarkable Way. She is a talented young lady and her en- thusiasm has been helpful at many a time. pageTw,h,,, The Prickly Perm' MISS FRANCIS CHHRGWIN. Helena High School, 1915. Montana Wesleyan Sub-Academy, 1915. Miss Chirgvvin, although little in stature has proved herself to be as mighty as she is little. She came to us Without experience but has rendered service that would be fitting for one of mature judgment, especially when we consider the difficulties that naturally present them- selves. MRS. LYDIA EMERSON. Her good nature and kind Ways have won many friends. She guards the welfare of Mills' Hall girls in a motherly Way.

CLASS COLORS-"Dark green and gold". Although the junior class is almost the smallest class in school it is not by any means the least in spirit and ambition. So, While two of the most loyal members were unable to return after the mid year vacation, we are proud of the four who remain and call attention to the significant fact that this class includes one of the star athletes of the school-a mem- ber of the first basket ball team and base ball team-another young man of musical and artistic turn of mind-and the active and retiring presidents of the Y.

While we are frank to confess our lack of knowledge, we are by no means averse to acquiring it, indeed we are liungering and thirsting for it, and we are getting it too. Witness the major proportion of names of Sophomores that have appeared on the Roll of Honor this year. We are a class that does things, not only in the matter of scholar- ship, but in every line of school activity. In athletics we easily won a series of basket ball games over the Freshmen, despite the fact that they had twice as many men to choose their players from as had we. And our class is composed of individuals who do things. When a student is wanted to fill a difficult place in Athletics, Literary or Christian Association work, to furnish music, or oratory, or to preside at a public function, the powers that be, always turn to a Sophomore. Ours is the important responsibility and the high privilege, as we go through school, of pushing the giddy College Class, the inanimate Seniors, and the bumptious Juniors, ahead of us, and of pulling the ver- dent Freshmen in our wake, while we must also have a care to train up the dear little "Sub Preppies" in the way they should go, that when they become Sophomores they will not depart therefrom. Loyalty is our watchword. Loyalty to our class, to "Wesleyan", and to the eternal principals of God's truth, and thereby we strive to accomplish the huge task that is ours. PaggTl1i1-fjv jresbmen w l l l The Freshmen class is again the largest in the school. It also num- bers among the largest ever enrolled. Its numbers alone do not altogether account for its greatness, for they have a devotion for "Old Wesleyan" that is unexcelled by any other class. Many of its class are prominent because they occupy various places of honor. One is a member of the leading debate teamsg one has excelled all others in holding the top of the monthly honor rollg another has been chosen second in the oratorical contestg pvvhile still others have made places on the base ball team. If the Freshmen of next year exceed the number of this year, Wesleyan will have a fine enrollment. T h e P 1' i cf lc Z y P e ca 1' Page Thiffy-one FRESHMEN CLASS.

From 8:30 in the morning until 3:45 and later in the afternoon, there is always at least one piano going, for practically all the music pupils are hard at work. Most of the students have grown so accustomed to the sounds of practicing that they seem to be able to study quite well with four pianos going, a violin or two, and perhaps someone taking vocal lessons. Owing to a lack of good material among the girls this year it was impossible to follow the good work with the Glee Club which was or- ganized last year. Practically all of last year's members failed to return. A double male quartette was organized which appeared to have a very brilliant future before it. However, owing to various unavoidable difficulties it camepto an untimely end. Not however, before it had made one good appearance before a St. Paul's audience on the occassion of Brother Van's Gettysburg lecture. Montana Wesleyan boasts a male quartette of which we are all very proud. This quartette has delighted many Helena Audiences this year besides the regular student body. They have sung for St. Paul's, Oak's St., and the Congregational churches. The members are: First Tenor, Sidney Kain. ' Second Tenor, Harry Kain. First Bass, Bruce Fawcett. Second Bass, Prof. A. C. Hoover. Martin VanDemark, first bass and Walter Alford, second bass, have fill- ed these positions on the quartette at different times during the year, and contributed greatly to the quartette's success. Its last appearance for this year will be on the recital program of Commencement week. The violin department started in this year with a very small enroll- ment owing to the lack of any teacher last year. Miss Coffey is pushing this work with as much energy as the rest of her work will permit and with her ability in that line will undoubtedly make a success of it. The work of the music department will close on May 23rd with the annual spring recital.

That the course is a valuable and efficient one has been proved many times over. At Montana Wesleyan the Freshman girls spend during the first half of the year, three afternoons a week in sewing. This includes the cutting, fitting and making of ordinary garments, the use of the sewing machine, hand made articles, etc. During the last semester two afternoons are spent in the cooking laboratory. Recitation work is also given with the laboratory work. This course aims to teach girls the handling of food materials and utensils, and the fundamental principles of cookery. The second and third years includes more advanced work in the sewing, cutting and fitting of garments, simple drafting of patterns, the use of materials suitable for different garments, the careful construction of attractive clothing, etc. It also embraces a course in textiles. This gives the student knowledge in the characteristics and uses of the different tex- tile fibers, simple tests for recognizing different fibers and a general know- ledge of the preparation of the raw material for the making of textile fabrics. Such a course is valuable in teaching how to select and buy materials. The art which is given in connection with the first two years of work is co-related with the sewing, bringing in color schemes, form design, etc. HE COOKING DEPARTMENT gives, after its first year, a more careful study into the scientific principles of food materials, how to prepare and serve meals, knowledge of food combinations and relative costs of such, etc. This course has seemed to be as popular among the boys of the insti- tution as well as among the girls, as shown by the interest the boys have taken in their work near and around the vicinity of the kitchen on cook- ing days. It is a noticeable fact that important committee plans, etc., have to be discussed with the Domestic Science girls which demand very urgent calls to the door to speak to various girls during cooking days when fragrant odors are wafted to the upper rooms to tempt the wondering. In fact, it seems that the Wesleyan boys have awakened to the reali- zation that their education would not be complete without a Domestic Sci- ence course, and it has been rumored that the board is contemplating such a course for the boys because of an urgent appeal in the form of a petition by them, in which they confessed a desire for more knowledge in the making of biscuits, dumplings, hot cakes, etc. But strange as it may seem, they did not evidence any desire for the sewing side.

We are exceedingly glad of this privilege because of the stage, curtain, piano and large floor space. We would otherwise have had to use a class room and on special occasions sue for the use of the chapel room. Our programs have been unique, novel and mostly of an original nature. We have, however, paid special attention to correct procedure in debating, oratory and government. Our members feel confident that they can reason without falsity, weakness or prejudice and as a result of their training are specially strong on parliamentary law. There are few indeed who miss a meeting without a reasonable and acceptable excuse. The limitations of active membership are that an election to membership is necessary, the candidate must be a student of the university and must declare his intention of entering heartily into the spirit and subjects of the constitution and by-laws. Altogether with the socials, programs and feeds no one ever regrets a membership or the performance of the necessary obligations. Our method is to induce voluntary action, and not drive a member by unnecessary fines and threats. It is seldom that a suspension or expulsion is necessary, simply because the society belongs to us and interest is directed towards the bet- terment of the society and ourselves. There is no debt now attached to the society, and our old constitution was this year revised and reprinted. With a tried constitution and by-laws we are able to say that we are a long way on toward assured success. A baseball game was played between the two Literary Societies. The Athenians defeated the Daedalians by the score of 9-8. Clark scoring the winning run. The batteries for the Athenians were, Clark, Neville and H. Kain, those for the Daedalians were, Greer, Rassmussen, Casterline and Werts. Greer was knocked out of the box in the first inning, five runs be- ing gathered from him. Rassmussen followed suit in the 6th and Caster- lein' could' never overcome the lead which the Athenians -secured in the first part of the game.

But conditions are changing in the University and we are thankful that Wesleyan has become so en- larged that one society could not furnish standing ground for all the useful talent which has rapidly been developing. Therefore a number of Wesleyan students assembled together and organized the Daedalian Literary Society in the month of September, nineteen hundred fifteen. The aim of the society is to prepare the students for better thingsg to secure for them a training that cannot be obtained elsewhere. It aims to develop the students ability to mix with other people, to give him a social culture that will train his personality, and make his life stand out for something that is helpful and good. Each member is given an oppor- tunity to prove his worth and to develop every talent that he or she may possess. Extemporaneous speaking and debating are encouraged, and every phase of the literary work is emphasized. Although but of short existence, the record of the Daedalian Literary Society has been enviable. The Daedalian debating team of Van Demark, Werts and Koehler won a unanimous decision over the Athenians in the inter-society debate. The success of the society has been due to loyalty and unity of spirit, every member works enthusiastically and conscien- tiously for the interests of all. No one dictates. No one controls the con- duct of the other members or the action of the society as a whole. The organization is entirely democratic. Every member has a voice in each proposed course, and all act together, whether for society honors or for society pleasures, their spirit is one. The Daedalians took their name from the old Patron Saint Daedalus. He was a man who accomplished things. He was a craftsman, sculptor, builder and inventor, leaving many things which help to increase the effi- ciency of man's labor. He was the first to rise on wings to the azure heights of the sky and away from the captive bond of the earth. The Daedalians are folk of the same type. They are the people who see things, who are looking forward to the bright aspects before them. They are those who build, and will continue to build throughout life, in brain and in character.

If the stars of the night could the story tell, They might speak of the scenes of earth, Since they sang in their joy in the morn of time, And rejoiced at its wondrous birth. Could they break the silence of unknown years, We should sigh o'er the centuries old, With their laughter and tears, with their hopes and their fears, But their story of life is untold. If the stars of the night could the story tell Of the battlefields heaped with slain, Of the faces upturned to the cold, bright sky, They would tell of heroic pain. Oh, the deeds of the brave who for freedom died With a passionate sacrifice, Oh, the heroes unknown whom the world might love, Could we read the tale of the skies! If the stars of the night could the story tell That by lovers' lips was told, That is heard with a tremulous thrill today, As it was in the ages oldg Oh, the idle vows and the breaking heart Would affright each faithless love, But the plighted troth of the loyal soul Would be true as the stars above.

A large majority of the stud- ents are behind the organization with the determination that the asso- ciation must do a definite work in the school. A Christian atmosphere is becoming more prevalent in the school each year. The employment bureau especially, has been active and has enabled many of the students to secure steady employment. Thirty furnaces in the middle of the winter were being cared for by our students-a result of the alertness of this department. The gospel team has made several deputations into the country and neighboring towns. Local pulpits have been supplied by them as have the meetings of the Salvation Army. Our organization has worked in harmony with the city Association. Several of our men have taught the Bible classes for boys in the city Triangle Club. We realize that our association has still room for expansion. Our aim, ever in keeping with the purpose of the organization, is to aid young men to a higher standard of living through the triple means: Mind, body, and spirit. 012132 Bream of life The sheltered pool may mirror not alone.

Early in the year Miss Hopkins, the student secretary of the Northwest, visited our association. While here she addressed the students in chapel and met with the Cabinet girls who found her visit very helpful. In early December we had a visit from Mrs. Curtiss, the student secretary for the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society. By her sugges- tion we adopted the Gingling College for Girls in Nanking, China, as our sister college. We also planned our Gingling banquet which was held after Christmas holidays and was very successful with its Chinese menu and interesting toasts. On January 8th, the Pre-Jubilee Conference was held in Helena Hall, with Mrs. Penrose, the National Vice-President in charge. She also told us many interesting things about Miss Scott. The field secretary of finance visited us on March 3rd and 4th. She met with the incoming Cabinet and helped lay plans for the coming year. We have always enjoyed the visits of our secretaries. The association itself this year has been busy. At the beginning of the school term in the fall the Y. M. and Y. W. gave ia joint reception for the students and faculty. The regular meetings have usually been held on Wednesday of each week. One meeting a month was devoted to mission study though the last month has been spent in the study of 'Around the World With Jack and Janet," for later use in junior work. Under the auspices of the Y. W. and Y. M. Mrs. Bovard held a series of meetings in early April, the influence of which was shown in later de- cisions and church memberships. We are planning to send a delegate to the conference at Seabeck this summer. O pilgrim on life's mountains, These flowers dwarfed and pale Are better than the roses In childhood's fertile vale!

Our local is one of six organizations which, together are united under a State Oratorical Association. These organizations hold an an- nual contest and the winner at the local, represents his school at the annual state contest. Walter Alford Won first place in our local contest and will represent our school at Bozeman this year while Cecil Hannon took second. Forrest Werts won first place and is to represent our school in ex- temperaneous oratory again this year. Martin Van Demark Won second place in our local extemporaneous contest.

At the present time, the fight for prohibition is at its greatest heighth. Ever since man first discovered the process of making spirituous liquors, the world has had a temperance question to consider. When alcohol was first discovered is unknown, but we have facts showing that a slight knowledge of the obtaining of 'ardent spirits was known by the people as far back as the second century. In early history spirituous liquors were not used to any great ex- tent, but in civilized, Christian United States the per capita consumption of liquors for the year 1914 was 22.68 gallons. The United States is a Christian nation, but such facts as these make a person blush with shame. It is estimated that ZSVZ per cent of the total population of the United States use alcoholic drinks. This indicates that the per capita con- sumption by users is 89 gallons. I will discuss this subject under three heads, namely: Man's physi- cal bargain, man's mental bargain, and man's moral bargain with booze. Booze has a. very harmful effect upon the development, endurance, and life of a man. This has been proven by extensive and careful re- search conducted by some of the world's greatest physicians and scien- tists. This is what they have discovered. On entering the body, alcohol has a very harmful effect upon the working power of every organ. It inflames the throat, hinders digestion, by its power to coagulate the food and to percipitate the solutions, it dilates the blood vessels, inflames the connective tissues of the liver, directly poisons the muscles of the heart, causing them to swell and permitting the accumulation of fatty particles between the fibrous tissue, prevents the proper nourishment of the muscles by interfering with the carrying of oxygen to them and the removal of waste matter, hinders the various functions of the mind and paralizes the delicate nerve and brain cells, thickens the speech, and blunts the senses. Alcohol has a very injurious effect upon the physical nature, but perhaps its most serious result is upon the defen- sive organization of the body. The most noticeable effect of alcohol upon the body is the outward appearance and behavior of an intoxicated person. Every young man who sees an intoxicated person staggering from one side of the sidewalk to the other, with his clothes torn and dirty, with his face flushed, and with his eyes blurred, tells himself that he will never be seen in such an unsightly condition. He tells himself that one or two glasses will be enough and that he will be able to stop when he wants to. I ask you can he and will he? Not long ago in a copyrighted article appearing in a large number of daily newspapers and magazines, Miss Lillian Russel, the noted authority upon good looks, declared that "drink will disfigure the face with pim- ples and blotches, glaze the eyes with a criss-cross of fiery blood vessels, paint the nose an unlovely hue, make your cheeks pallid, write dark circles under the eyes, and will do a few other things besides inflicting upon the guilty ones such unimportant consequences as indigestion, headaches, billiousness, Bright's disease, nervousness, bad temper, loss of common sense, loss of power to work efficiently, loss of friends, family and happiness." This warning given by Miss Russel is based upon scientific facts. I would suggest that Miss Russel be employed to write the advertisements of the brewing companies whose flaming decorations adorn the pages T h c P 1' i c lc Z y P If IL fr page F,,,,y,S,,,,e,, of several of our newspapers and magazines showing fair young women, with a beautiful complection, guzzling beer. Extended experiments have been conducted by physicians and scien- tists, both in America and in Europe, which show that alcohol has a very harmful effect upon the endurance, accuracy and strength of a man's muscles. In a walking contest, to test endurance, which was conducted in Germany, the course covered was sixty-two miles. Eighty-one men enter- ed the contest with twenty-four of them abstainers. The first four men to cross the line were non-users of alcohol and six out of the ten who re- ceived a prize were teetotalers and two had not touched liquor for several months. Only two of the abstainers fell out by the wayside during the march while more than half of the drinkers had to quit. You can plainly see the result of alcohol upon endurance. In another contest conducted in Sweden to test accuracy, it was found that when the men had taken a small amount of alcohol that they only hit the mark three times out of thirty shots while upon the abstaining days the average was twenty-three and twenty-six hits. In a similar test in typewriting, the results showed that the men were more liable to make mistakes and to take a longer time after they had taken a small amount of alcohol that they were when they had not taken any. By these experiments showing the effect of alcohol upon the muscles of a man, can he afford to use it when his livelihood depends upon his power to work? Can he afford to endanger the life of his family by the use of alcohol? Why is it that life insurance companies consider the electrition, fire fighter, steeple jack, and the brakeman on a railroad better risks than the bartender or the drinker? Why is it that some companies will not insure the brewer, the bartender, or the drinker at all, even if they wish to pay an exorbitant premium. The answer to these questions is the fact that the brewer, life insurance companies of sentimenal or ethical Where there should pectation of the life of the bartender, or the drinker die too soon. The do not turn these people down as risks because reasons but because they are too short lived. have been 874.43 deaths according to the ex- the insured, there were 698 deaths among the "steady free usersf' or nearly twice that of the abstainers, a ratio of 186 per cent. The ratio of the teetotalers is 118 per cent. These are cold figures and men try to make excuses to themselves and say "Well I am not a steady free user of alcohol. I only drink a little." Let that be as it may. What constitute a "steady free user" according to the life in- surance companies? If you take as much as two glasses of beer and one glass of whiskey a day you are classed as a "steady free useri' by some companies. Some others are liberal and say that a person using five pints of beer, or its equivalent, about two ounces of pure alcohol, if dis- tilled, constitutes the "steady free user" of liquors. It is a well known fact that alcohol affects first the most delicate structures of the brain and nerve centers. This is the reason that the first results of a man drinking is his loss of decency, the loss of speech, and the loss of his ability to think clearly and accurately. Professor Voght of the University of California made tests upon him- self to determine the effect of alcohol upon memory. He daily commit- ted to memory twenty-five lines of Greek poetry and recorded the number of minutes required to learn them. On the days when he took as much alcohol as one would get in from one and la half to three glasses of beer, it took him on an average of eighteen per cent longer to learn the lines than when no alcohol was taken. Six months later, when he reviewed and relearned the same lines, he found that the lines learned on the alcohol days required more time for relearning. This is just one of the page p,,,,y-Eigh, T h 0 P 1' fi C It Z y P e a 1' experiments that have been conducted to determine the effect of alco- holics upon the memory and learning power of the brain. The time has come when we use our brain more and more as a medium by which we earn our living. Factories are equipped with fine machinery which takes skill more than muscular strength to operate and thus it is clearly seen that if a man wishes to succeed he can not afford to tear down his brain by the use of "John Barleycornf' I would ask of you. Whence comes discords? Whence come wrang- lings? Whence come heart breaks, tears and sighs? Have you ever wit- nessed the inexpressable awfulness of a drunkard's home? If so, then you will know that the drinker's home is the best earthly type of such. Even where the home is headed by a "moderate drinker" alcohol still is the enemy of the home. There are more quarrels caused over the wine or beer glass than by any other means. There is more crooked thinking and more crooked deeds done because of drinking than from any other S0l1I'C6. From 1887 to 1906 there were 184,568 divorces in the United States caused by intemperance either on the part of the husband or wife. The Census Bureau says that one divorce out of every five is caused by drink, and yet you say that alcohol does no harm. Norman E. Richardson says: 'It is the duty of all who care for the homes of the nation to put themselves in battle array against the home's arch foe. By example and influence, by voice and vote, by prayer and work, every home and every inmate of a home who cares for the welfare of the nation and the establishment of Christ's kingdom upon earth should declare, 'saloons must go! With liquor abolished, wages will in- crease and a better financial support of the family will thereby come. Take the money that goes for drink and spend it for the home and a new era of comfort will result. Stop drink and children will be born healthier, reared under better conditions, and arrive at ia higher plane of moral devel- opment. Grinding poverty, that leaves no room for proper relaxation, will no longer be the force it now is, working as it does against the happiness of the home. Abolish the liquor traffic and the worst hindrance standing in the way of the natural expression of the God-given parental instinct will be removed." Mr. Richardson is right and if the drinking habit is allowed to continue it will be but a comparatively short time until the people of the United States and all over the world become a low set of illiterate people. In conclusion I will say we are bound to believe, on the evidence given, that if one takes alcohol, even in small quantities, it is in some measure a menace to health. We are bound to believe, in the light of science, lst, that you are dangerously threatening your stomach, your liver, your heart, your kidneys, your blood vessels, your nerves, and your brain, 2nd that you are decreasing your capacity for work in any field, be it phy- sical, intellectual or artistic, 3d, that you are lowering the grade of your mind, dulling your higher senses, and taking away your morals, 4th, that you are lessening your possibility of health and longevity, and 5th that you may be entailing upon your posterity yet unborn la burden of incal- culable misery.

The lithe, strong, versatile, and agile athlete is A V, still with us. Dear old Montana Wesleyan has several ' . of this type, who have been active during the school xl' I f year in securing victories. The honors have been gained by +'1v',1,, clean sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct, thereby X'-H E, ,C T bringing credit to all concerned and making numerous 1 ' friends for themselves and the school. In the early part of the year the Athletic Association was formed in the Chapel room and the following officers were elected: President ------- Forrest W. Werts Vice President - - - - - Frankie Denny Secretary ---------- Ariel Armstrong Treasurer ----------- William Neville Faculty Representative Prof. A. C. Hoover Cheer Leader ---- Forrest Werts Armstrong did not return to school the second semester, therefore the members of the Association had to look for a new secretary, this they found in the person of Walter tShortyJ Alford. The work of the Cabinet has been done well and everything kept in perfect condition. Basket ball seemed to occupy the supreme position in athletics from the first, although before any practice had been done, la cross-country run had been planned and for awhile much interest was taken in it, but for some reason it was dropped. About this time the over-confident Freshmen challenged the Sophs to a series of three games at basket ball, in which the Freshies were bea.ten 2 to 1. ,, Prof. A. C. Hoover was secured as r.'- coach and no one better could have .... if ,,.,,., ., A been obtained. He certainly knows 'i' how to handle the team. Arrange- 7 ments were made for the Y. M. C. A. . , gymnasium in which to practice. And 5. 2 what with a good gym and a few new Q ,,,,,,?,l men our coach was able to develop one of the best teams in the state. This f ' was shown by the facts that they gy were defeated only by the best of teams. For some time the squad practiced hard and consistently. Competition proved to be keen, and the fellows had to work first, to make the team, then to hold their position on it. Those who succeeded in doing so were, Nev- ille, Clark, H. Kain, S. Kain, Van Demark, Smith, Rasmussen. The following is an account of the games which Wesleyan played: BOULDER-WESLEYAN GAIVIE. The first game of the season was with the Mutes of the State School at Boulder, a fast aggregation, on December 3rd in the Helena High school gym. The game was fast from start to finish. The boys did not seem to be able to get together the first half, which ended with the score 10 to 12 in favor of Boulder, but in the last half they struck their pace T 77, G P 7' 'i C lc Z jj P If CL 7' page Fif,y,Th,,ee BASKET BALL TEAM. Van Demark, H. Kain, Clarke, Coach Hoover, Captain Neville, Smith, S. Kain, Rasmussen. and in no way could the Mutes stop them, thus the first game ended, 25 to 14 in favor Wesleyan. The same evening the 2nd team played Jefferson County High School, and although being defeated they showed some of the fighting spirit which is characteristic of a Wesleyanite for Wesleyan. A reception was given to the Visiting team in Mills Hall immediately after the games. PHI LIPSBU RG-WESLEYAN GAM E. On December 10 we played Philipsburg in the High School gym. This game was a run away as far as Wesleyan was concerned. The cause of so little interest in the game, can be found simply by looking at the score, the first half our fellows held them 25 to 0. When the whistle blew the Philipsburg team came onto the floor, naturally a little down-hearted, page Fif,y.p,,,,,. T h 0 P 1' 11 c lc Z y P c a 1' but with a spirit which we like to see. They struggled bravely but Wes- leyan was too much for them. In this half they got their only field bas- ket and three free throws, so the second game fell to Wesleyan, the score being 45 to 5. Y. M. C. A.-WESLEYAN GAIVIE. The next game was played with the local Y. M. C. A. on the Y. M. floor, January 19. The Y. M. team is composed of former stars, and is said to be one of the fastest teams in the state, so Wesleyan had a hard nut to crack in this game, but she was able to do so. PHILIPSBURG-WESLEYAN GANI E. We played our first game away from home on January 18, and we must say that when we heard the score which came back over the wires we were somewhat disappointed, for after having decisively defeated the same team on our own floor by the score of 45 to 5 we had no idea that our boys would lose to them now. However, such was the case, but when we consider the fact that there were only 5 players on the trip, that an entirely new line up was used and that Philipsburg had not been de- feated for four years on their own floor, if it could be called such, we can say that our team must have done its best to hold them to the close score of 26 to 34. After the game the team and coach were entertained' at the High School building and they must have had a good time because they all wanted to go back. DEER LODGE-WESLEYAN GAME. On January 19th we played the fast quintette from the College of Montana at Deer Lodge. After being beaten the night before our boys were somewhat disheartened but they showed that they could come back and did so. At the end of the first 12 minutes the score stood 12 to 0 in favor of Deer Lodge, but at that time our big center, H. Kain, dropped one through the basket and that was the beginning of the undoing of Deer Lodge for in 8 minutes the score had been changed to 23 to 14 in favor of Wesleyan. We won easily 44 to 17. Just before the game the coach read the following telegram from the Mills Hall girls: WESTE ' E UNICN F WESTERNUNIUN' TEL is fr ' A M GEORGE W. E. ATKINS. vice-PR 1' NEWCOMB CAR . PRESIDENT .

On the 9th of February our boys went down to Three Forks to try their skill with the fast city aggregation. It is said that our big guard "Serious Sid" looked like a dwarf beside his man. The Three Forks team is one of the fastest in the state. Two of our players did not arrive in Three Forks until about 20 minutes before the game, and one of them was sick so we had a badly crippled team. No wonder our boys lost by the score of 56 to 30. The Prickly Pear p,,gep,f,y.p,,,e BUTTE Y. lvl. A. GAME QWESLEYANJ Feb. 10 we played the Butte f-. . . Y. M. After the defeat of the night before at Three Forks a few of the men were more or less bruised, so Van Demark, one of our fastest players, was telegraph- ed to go at once as the team needed him. His train was sev- eral hours late and as a result Van did not arrive until after the game had begun. During the first half H. Kain played his usual position of center, but he had been injured the night before and was not in a condition to play, so Van was put in to finish the game. He certainly showed up well, as will be seen from the fact that he scored 2 points while his opponent scored only 4. In the second half "Serious Sid" Kain changed from guard to center and continued to play la steady and consistent game, the game ended 34 to 19 in favor of Butte. The team and coach were given a reception after the game by the Epworth League of Mountain View church, at which they had a very enjoyable time. BOULDER-VWESLEYAN GAIVI E. One of the hardest fights Wesleyan ever put up was with the Mutes on February 11. When the team stepped on the floor their surprise was great on hearing the familiar sound: O! you Wes! ley! an. rah! rah! rah! rah! O! you Wesleyan! rah! rah! rah! rah! O! you Wesleyan! Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! and 14 girls came up the stairs. No wonder the boys played as they did. Many of them brought back souvenirs in the form of black eyes, cuts and other things. Van Demark started in the first of the game for the first time during the year, having been absent from the team either from sickness or absence from school. The first half ended 14 to 10 in favor of Boulder. Again H. Kain was forced to retire from the game, yet his gameness was apparent throughout. Sid took his place at center and Smith took Sid's place at guard. It looked like another defeat, for with only 7 minutes to play the team was 11 points behind, but the boys rallied and ran up a score of 31 to 30. After the game la dispute arose as to the correct score and at a meeting the next morning no decision could be reached except to play another game at Helena on some later day. The girls of Montana Wesleyan are all "O. K." and they did their share in this game turning out as they did. BOULDER-WESLEYAN GANI E. The third game with Boulder was played on March 11th on the Helena High School floor. The Wesleyan team struck a pace which they never before had attained, and never for one minute was the result of the game in doubt. The Mutes were outclassed both in team work and in basket shooting, although at times they showed quite a little speed. The team as a whole showed the best of training and of conscientious work, and special mention should be made of Neville our star forward, who seemed to be able to find the basket from any position of the floor and also of "Serious Sid" who did such effective work as guard, that not a basket which the Mutes secured was made at short range, and only three field baskets being made during the whole game. Thus Wesleyan humbled the Mutes in the last game of the season by the score of 34 to 10 in our favor. The basket ball season is now over with the result that Wesleyan won 6 games, while she lost only 3.

After this process the diamond was in first class condition. New material, such as bats and balls, were secured. Then Coach Hoover and Captain Clark got the fellows out and for some time they practiced diligently. Before the regular team had been picked the first game was pulled off. This was with the Y. M. C. A. Midgets and from the result of this game, in which we defeated them by the score 6 to 3, we are confident of being able to defeat both the High School and Mt. St. Charles. Our pitchers, Smith, Clark and Neville, did effective work in the box, and never for once were the Midgets able to solve their delivery. The backing they re- ceived was also splendid.

T 71 c P 1' i c A' I ll P c Cl 1' learltiztg tn lim IFE is still a very new thing to young people of fifteen to twenty-five, and its wonder and beauty and half-guessed possibilities keep them aglow over the great "adventure of living." They have been told repeatedly that youth is the time to learn knowledge, to learn life, to learn God. They feel dimly that it is also the time to iearn to love. Some of the things they can learn from books, though they find after a while that book knowledge must not be accumulated as a mere mass of facts, but digested and assimilated as a part of one's self. Some things can be learned only by living, but both kinds of learning can be aided and helped by the experience of their elders if only the young heads and hearts are willing to accept the fruits of such experience, instead of learning wholly by their own mistakes. To learn to live! Youth finds that life is complex, finds itself to be a part of a great company also intent on the "adventure of life." It finds, rightly, that friendships and comradeships make much of the joy of living. lt. finds school-life to be an opportunity for closer comradeships than childhood cared for. There is room in college life for friendships of the David and Jonathan type-friendships that will last the chance relations of college, and be strong enough to endure unchanged through long periods of absence and separation. But such friendships are formed on better grounds than the mere gravitation of youth to youth. "Not chance of birth or place hath made us friends, Being oft times of different race and nations, But the endeavor for the selfsame ends, YVith the same hopes and fears and aspirations." Such a. friendship was that which young Arthur Hallam inspired in his college companion Tennyson-a friendship unbroken by the early death of Hallam, which gave rise to one of the world's noblest poems, "In Memoriam." But all associations of college life cannot be of a kind to produce last- ing friendships. Many must be, in the nature of the case only passing acquaintances, yet these may be helpful for the time, if only there is about them the genuine spirit of kindliness and unselfishness. Such comradeships as these, frank and generous, unspoiled by the cheap imitation of affections that belongs to a. later time, are among the pleasant memories of college days. To learn to live, to learn to love! Deep in every young heart is a. world of dreams-vague and unrealized-dreams of coming hope and a coming happiness. Such dreams help to keep mind and body pure for the crowning companionship of the years. For the sake of that yet unknown friend, temptations are resisted, battles are fought with the powers of evil, and the soul seeks to develop into purity and nobility. To realize the fulfillment of that dream is the instinct of all young life. Broken gleams of its beauty and mystery may be glimpsed in eyes that are now blue, now browng its music echoes now in this voice, now in that. As Miss Alcott says, "The soul, like Psyche, is seeking for a love worthy to possess it." By and by the angel of love touches the eyes with the gift of vision, and the true mate of the heart is found. Life and death may intervene to pre- vent what we call happiness, but "The heart can wait, it has eternity." But meanwhile, before the time of revealing comes, instinct must be joined with judgment. The will must recall the heart to the sense that it is still not the time to find the love of a life, nor the time to enjoy its privilegesg it is only the time to learn how to love by and by. If the immature slip puts forth too early its blossom of rose-flushed snow, the wise farmer does not allow it to bear fruit upon its slender branches, lest it fail to become a sturdy and beautiful orchard tree. The gardener who wishes to have a perfect bloom, will cut off a multitude of blossoms in order that the strength of the plant may flower in the one splendid chrys- anthemum. Happy, though rare, is the heart that has not frittered away its wealth of love in a multitude of little affections, but has kept itself and its inner strength and beauty for the one who is coming out of the years to clasp hands for the long, rough journey of life. For love is not all joy, it means service, sacrifice, suffering. It is not a game to be played with sweet stolen touches of hand and lip. These privileges must be earned, they are-to change the figure "meant to help keep alight the flame of love on the altar of homef' The responsibilities of love-the heavies of life-must be faced and taken into reckoning. All this belongs normally to a time after the college years. One trouble with the instance of youth, in its natural and innocent de- sire for companionship and friendship, is that too often it wants to borrow the pretty privileges and close association that belong rightly to a later time and a different purpose. It wants to play at love without paying the cost of the game. It wants to give and enjoy devotion without incurring responsibilities. And so sometimes, one, sometimes both, among the young pairs that have unconsciously been too devoted in their friendship, will be likely to suffer disillusionment sooner or later. Then the bloom of life seems to have lost something of its beauty, and some young hearts that have come too soon to the knowledge of the emotions of mature life may even suffer wounds whose scars will never quite vanish. There is a modern translation of an old scripture which makes it read, "I charge you, daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not up nor awaken love, until it please." It is this too early awakening of emotions which elder people are anxious to see avoided in the lives of the young. It is partly the endeavor to shield them from the conditions favorable to this imma- turity of feeling, which cannot be wholesome, that gives rise to the cau- tions about too close and too constant associations, which young people so deeply resent. They know their own innocence of intention, but they do not yet know life, they do not know that the dreamy moments when an allur- ing face seems to hide the dry page of geometry or of latin, are just so much stolen from the strength needed for preparation for the great business of real living and loving in after years. The old saying, "Experience is a dear teacher," is never more true than in youth. Why it should be necessary for two thousand generations or children to cut their fingers in order to know that their parents are right when they say a knife is sharp, is one of the mysteries of human nature. Civilization would not be so slow in advancing if only each new generation might begin more nearly where the old left off, instead of living the same mistakes over again. xl: an hi- X . 5 LffP7"iCl17l-IIPE Page Sixty -Two ng - The P7'7:CklU P9557 PageSixty-Three ilibz Bear an Margaret M ichner HARLIE and I had started in the morning and were riding slowly through snow which creaked at every step. We were already two discouraged hunters for, though it was still morning and there was time for a good hunt, the snow was so crusted that we knew the keen ears of the elk could detect us from afar. Charlie slapped his rifle disgustedly saying, "What use are you today? I might as well have brought a shovel to make my path to the elk and then hit the elk over the head with the shovel. I might as well have let you bring your old 'scatter fun' and let you shoot pheasant? By this time we had reached the summit of the divide, there was no sign of elk anywhere. We decided to go home as luckless hunters-to be the laughing stock of the camp, for Charlie had been so sure we would have at least one elk. We had gone but a short distance when we met his lordship, Sir Fran- cis Burnett. He was a tourist at one of the tourist camps not far away, who had come all the way from London for this hunt in the Rockies. He carried some kind of a huge gun of an English make and would not ride a horse for the "west'n hawses" as he expressed it, "were of a ve'y common so't," so he preferred to walk. We know that on one occasion he had ridden on one of our "crude westin hawses" and that the horse had left him in the mountains to walk home. Of course he that he had left the horse to browse, but from scratches and torn clothes upon Sir Francis we were inclined to believe that the cayuse had unseated his rider in jumping a log. His Highness expressed great distaste at my brother having his sister so far out in the mountains on a cold November day. "Why, 'Pon my wo'd, Miss Peggieg doncha know I nevah saw a girl like you in my life! Why docha know, a gi'l should stay in doors on such a day!" He then asked if our dog had hurt his foot, saying he had seen a huge dog's track back over the hill and that there was blood in one track. Upon examining Shep's track, he said that the other was twice as large. Charlie immediately said that the other must be a bear's track, but it was very late for a bear to be out. However, we three climbed the hill to where Sir Francis had seen the track. Sure enough it was bruinis track but it was the largest we had ever seen. Charlie whistled softly, then said: "That fellow surely is headed for the den in that rocky ledge over there, and is probably holed up in one of them by now. I don't see why we can't go over and smoke him out and shoot him as he comes out." " 'Pon my wo'd, have I really found a bear? Don't tell me I cawn real- ly shoot him?" "Why, surely you can," I said, "I'll crawl into the den and drive him out, and then if you are quick enough you can shoot him as he bounds out in terror, afraid of the ferocious person behind him." "Now, Miss Peggie, don't jest with me. Really, don'tcha know, I cawn't conceive of myself really shooting a bear." "Nor can I," I answered, "You are not so heartless as to take an- other's life." Charlie broke in here, "Well, if we are going to kill a bear and get home tonight, we had better be starting." Thus Charlie leading, Shep and I, close upon his heels, "his Highness" bringing up the rear, plodded through the snow on the bloody bear track. Page Sixty-Four T I1 f' P 1' li 0 A' I .ll P C a 1 Mr. Bruin seemed to have a destination in view, for he did not pause once, but went in a straight course toward the lime ridge. "I knew it," said Charlie, "I knew he was going to that ledge-maybe he is the big black fellow that was around here last year. If he is, I see where you kill a mighty big bear, Sir Burnett." Sir Burnett answered breathlessly, "Aftah what your sistaw has said concerning my taking a life, I have come to the conclusion that it would be quite impossible for me to kill the poor fellaw, but I assure you, you may do the job without hurting my feelings." We tried to persuade him that it would be all right for him to kill the bear,-Charlie explaining to him that I was merely trying to tease, and adding that it was very rude of me to do so. " 'Pon my wo'd, it does not matta whethaw Miss Peggie meant it or notg she made me realize how terrible it would be for me to take the life of an innocent brute, you in your youth cannot realize the terribleness of death as I dog you cawn do it much bettaw than I." It was finally decided that Charlie should smoke the bear out, and that Sir Francis and I should stand, guns in hand, ready to shoot. Sir Burnett merely holding his gun so he might come to my defense if neces- sary. We were making a joke of the whole affair. Still I could not but look forward to the killing of the bear. How I should like to shoot the big black fellow! The largest creatures I had ever killed were the grouse and pheasant. To have this great black bear lying dead at my feet would make me very proud. When we arrived at the ridge, we followed the fresh tracks directly to the den. "Ha," said Charlie, "We have you, old fellow. What can you do for yourself now? Well, Sis, are you read to shoot him? How about you, Sir Burnett? I know that she can not shoot straight enough to kill him in the first few dozen shots! Are you ready to shoot him as he pounces down upon her?" I replied indignantly, "Well, Charles, I'll have you understand that I can kill him before he gets to me, and I don't need either you or Sir Fran- cis to protect me either, so there!" I " 'Pon my wo'd, how you do tease her Carrley! Ain't you ashamed?" Humorously he added, "Nevah the less I shall be a brave hero, Miss Peggie, ready to shoot, but seriously we will have to be p'etty caleful don'tcha know? How about you Cha'ley? It seems to me you's is the most dang'ous position." "Yes," I broke in, "I guess you are the only one that will be in any danger, Charlie. Really, what are you going to do?" Charlie was thoughtful nowg "Why, I don't exactly know, but I guess I'll put a fire in the mouth of the cave -and see if that will smoke him out." Sir Francis, wringing his hands in anguish, exclaimed, " 'Pon my woid, but really don'tcha know, infallible intuition tells me some one is going to be hurt! Had we really ought to attempt such a thing?" Charlie paid no attention, but busied himself building a fire in the cave. For nearly an hour we waited eagerly, Sir Francis getting more nervous each minute until at last he could not even hold his gun. At length Charlie said there was no use waiting for the smoke to drive the bear out because the smoke was escaping somewhere, so he was going in. I begged him not to go, but with a boy's fool-hardiness he was deter- mined and there was no stopping him. Sir Francis was almost white in his terror. "'Pon my wo'd, is the boy simply mad? Cawnt he see that he will nevah come out alive? Dontcha know infallible ............ " Charlie took out his knife from his belt and gun in hand disappeared into the cave. I gasped, then almost mad with terror, stood facing the T It c P 1' il c lc Z gy P 1: ra r page Sim, Five cave, waiting to shoot. I felt that I should soon see my brother wrestling with the huge, ferocious bear. It was so terrible I could scarcely think of it-that my brother should ever return alive did not enter my mind. Just once I glanced up at Sir Francis. His face was an ash color and he was trembling in every muscleg his gun had fallen from his hands. I was so frightened I was past the trembling stageg I was calm in fear, waiting for what seemed to me a long time to see Charlie in the bear's embrace, being torn to pieces. Then something like a chuckle came from the innermost part of the cave. My gun slipped in my handsg a decided chuckle came-Charlie's own laugh-my gun fell with a crash breaking the sights off. I staggered blindly toward the cave. Sir Francis began, "'Pon my wo'd don'tcha-" Cl1arlie's voice interrupted, "Come here and see how we have been fooled." It sounded almost too good to know that he was really alive. Sir Francis and I ran stumblingly. About six feet from the opening there was a sharp turn in the cave, then a passage of probably ten feet, then an opening. The cave was simply a passageway through the rock. The bear had merely walked through. We had spent all of this time at the cave while Mr. Bruin was making his way across country. We returned home not only tired, luckless hunters but also shamefaced hunters. Upon being questioned that evening Sir Francis remarked, " 'Pon my wo'd, these mountains really are quite misleading-don'tcha know?" 0 page 3fx,J.-5-fx T h U P 1' i 4' If I y P 12 car 1' Surial hentai Social activities of Montana Wesleyan opened on September 3rd when President and Mrs. Bovard together with Vice President and Mrs. Adams entertained at the home of Prof. Adams. The evening was spent in a most enjoyable manner and the new students and the old began to get acquainted in a social way. Games of an intensely interesting nature were played un- til dainty refreshments were served. Thus the social year was started off with a momentum that has not lost interest or helpfulness during the entire year. On September 10 the Young Men's and the Young Women's Christian Associations gave the joint reception to the new students. A general old time mixer was held in the Music room. The entertainment committee had planned an evening of events that made everyone forget themselves and join in with an enthusiastic spirit. After the mixer and program the body assembled marched out into the chapel room. As they marched out they passed by the tables which were loaded with the good things of the evening. The tables were shaped like a "Y" and the girls coming from one room and the boys from another formed couples for the eve- ning. Seats were arranged in the form of "C". Thus the idea of Young Christians was carried out. This social event gave a stimulus to the entire year's activities of both associations. September 17th found the present student body again assembled at Helena Hall, this time the guests of the faculty. After the formal proced- ure of the first part of the evening a "College meet" was held. Those present were divided into groups representing one of eight different col- leges. Prizes for the winning schools were given. In the hot contests that came off the formality of the evening disappeared and each one entered into the fun as though they had been actually representing their school. And again refreshments were served that were in perfect keeping with the splendiferous reception and the evening ended with the appreciative joy that is characteristic of Wesleyan. On October 23rd the two literary societies climed Mount Helena. Up in the cave the programs of both societies were given. After the program they roasted weenies and marshmallows and made weird the evening by telling ghost stories. In the excitement that followed Mr. Holland lost his hat. He is sure that a ghost in the arms of the wind carried it away. At 6 o'clock on October 29th, the Wesleyan students and faculty, to- gether with their friends, were seated at the Pan-Wesleyan Banquet. This banquet was one of the biggest successes of the year. It was directly planned by Prof. Hoover and was full of pleasing originality. The Hall was beautifully decorated with the school colors and class colors. The faculty and guests were seated at the main table while each class had a table of its own. Dr. Bovard acted as toastmaster. Addresses of welcome were made by Prof. Adams, vice-president of the University on behalf of the University, and by Forrest Werts, president of the Athletic Association on behalf of the Association. Toasts of excep- tional interest and importance were given by Mr. Davee and Prof. Deit- rick. Each class was represented by their speaker. Mr. Harry Kain, repre- senting the college, gave a toast entitled, "The Tempest." Mr. Jack Clark, as representative for the Senior Academy, gave a remarkable discourse on "All's well that ends well." The Junior orator, Miss Ruth Staton respond- ed with "As You Like It," while Doc Sutton, for the Sophomores talked long and gloriously on "Much Ado About Nothing." Bill Koehler, for the Freshmen ended with a "Comedy of Errors." Then each class was to pull off a stunt. Each one tried for the best but the college pulled down the honors by their quartette singing, "Any- body Here Seen Rover' in an original, laughable, and suggestive manner. On November 4th the College Class was invited over to the home of Henry Kain. The event was the celebration of the birth of Sidney, our own Serious Sid. Of course Sid went through the regular procedures of such a party but he caused much trouble before he was caught and properly broke to drive. Then his parents dished up "goodies" until no T It c P 1' 'L c lc I y P ff a r P62815-,x,y,5-even one could see straight and we all went home wishing Sid had a birthday celebration once a month at least. During the latter part of November, the first team and their lady friends niet at the home of Professor and Mrs. Hoover's for a social time. Of course this was a pleasing event to all who happened to be blessed with the privilege of attending. The procedure of games and jokes added to the joy of the evening. It's these separate social events that makes every boy wish he was an athlete and every girl wish that she was fhadl one too. December 17th was the Christmas celebration. Just before school was over for the holidays we all gathered in Mills Hall for a very preasant eve- ning. In the parlor stood the magnificent Christmas tree, a beauty indeed. And of course Santa was there and he proceeded after his delayed arrival from the unknown regions to distribute the gifts which caused much merriment and excitement. And like the days of early childhood we munched candy and nuts and talked of the thinks that are to be. During the Christmas vacation Prof. and Mrs. Hoover entertained for the students who did not go home. Of course this was an appreciated event for it took off some of the lonesomeness that is bound to occur when most of the Wesleyanites are away, for really, when a Wesleyan is around, you know it. On March llth the first and second teams together with their lady friends met at the home of Prof and Mrs. Hoover. This was a final windup of the basket ball season, and as such the pent up spirits of the boys gave vent and Sid demonstrated his ability to eat peanuts and some of the other boys showed what they could do when it comes to doing away with the dainties that Mrs. Hoover can prepare, when they were not compelled to be in training. One of the few big events of the year was held on the evening of March 17th, when the girls entertained in honor of the boys. As it was on St. Patrickls day the color scheme was green. A program that was a hearty laugh from beginning to end was rendered after which the girls took the boys down to the Eddy Cafe where a sumptuous banquet was served. Miss Lois Carver was toastmistress and toasts were given by Jack Clarke, Prof. Hoover, Harry Kain, and Martin Van Demark. Respon- ses were made by Irene Gordon, Mrs. Emerson, Retta Forney and Esther Eames. This event was sure a grand success and enjoyed by every one who had the good fortune to be a Wesleyanite. On March 31st came the annual Stag Feed. This is the big planned-for event of the year. Helena Hall was elaborately decorated in the school colors, red and white. The tables were placed in the shape of a letter "S" and the same color scheme was carried out. A dainty place-card fin- ished in gold and set off by the beauty of sweet peas assisted in seating the large crowd present. Grace was given by Dr. Bovard after which all partook of a real old- fashioned chicken banquet. Martin Van Demark was toastmaster and after-dinner speeches were given by Dr. Bovard, Prof. Adams, Prof. Hoover, Mr. Holland, Mr. Walter Alford and Miss Retta Forney. The entertainment that followed was a laugh producing vaudeville stunt. Mr. Johnson gave a graphic impersonation of a Swede in America together with some of his experiences. The Koehler brothers entertained with German songs and readings. Koehler and Fawcett and Walter Alford fwho brought down the house as a lady, with his song "I want a man"l entertained with an amusing program of spicy wit. Werts sang a solo t?l "All That I want Is Love." A prize fight between Fred Koehler and John Greer furnished the most intense excitement of the evening. The whole affair closed with the boys on the program singing, "Girls, Girls, Girls." On the evening of April 27th the faculty gave their reception in honor of the basket ball team. The letters were awarded after a few fitting re- marks by Prof. Adams and Prof. Hoover. Fun and frolic was afforded in question contests and an indoor baseball game, between the boys and the girls, the girls winning, 16 to 0. The faculty was again there in serving up refreshments.

X 'X mf nf ' ?4,j we 3 X ' ' 'WI F-U' D Miss Coffey, who seems to have but little sympathy for those Phys- iology, Chemistry and Domestic Science students whose thinkers have failed them at critical moments, recently had an occasion to experience the humiliation of an unruly thinker. She bolted through the depot door just in time to catch the Bozeman train, whereupon she stopped suddenly, took her lower lip between her teeth, strangely opened and closed her eyes, at the same time raised a tightly clenched fist above her head, gasped pathetically, and with a deathly whack lowered the mighty fist to the other one, which was jam- med through her muff. "What's the matter?" interrupted a friend who had noticed the strange performance. "Oh-I-I-forgot it-I forgot it!" she gasped in a tone that solicited the eyes of the big Indian policeman who was standing near. "Forgot what?" ventured the friend, observing her contorted face more closely. "Oh! but I left it hanging on a nail in my roomf' "But what did you leave in your room?" anxiously inquired the friend. "Yes,-but if my room should get on fire?" she gasped again. "I know-but what did you leave?" almost angrily asked the friend. "Oh, my pocketbook-I told you," gasped Miss Coffey. fPublished by request of the Y. W. woman who bought the ticket to Boze- man for Miss Coffey.J "Now Vernonj' said Miss Chirgwin, "let us take the verb 'to be? What is the past tense of 'is?"' "Was," said V. MacDonald. "Very good.

In the middle of the patch was a picturesque log cabin, with a rudely built barn and some other out-buildings behind it, and, a stone's throw away from the house, a shallow stream meandered aimlessly upon its way. The two windows in the side of the house facing us were small, and seemed like eyes through which the building stared at us. Outside the open door, three or four children were playing. Their clothes were in tatters, but they were as happy as they were ragged, for they laughed and shouted in glee as they rolled over one another at their play. Dotted over the entire clearing were stumps about three feet high, ob Says: "Fraser's Twenty" is the suit that I recommend to the man in average circumstances, the fellow who must get full value for his money.

The smaller stumps had evidently been taken out, and the corn stubble showed where a crop had been harvested. Divided from the rest of the clearing by a pole fence was a pasture, where two cows were feeding quietly. The place was not enclosed in any way except by the thick growth of tall trees that gave the impression of a gigantic fence, and seemed also to afford paternal protection. Although pretty, it was a lovely spot, and our own open, well-settled part of the country never appealed to me so strongly as when I stood here upon the frontier of civilization. -C. G. H.

It impressed me so forcibly that I decided to tell you about it the first oppor- tunity I should get. Possibly some of you have lived in Helena longer than I have and have never noticed it. Then I suggest that you pay this place a visit today and investigate the truth of these statements. Glass! Glass!! Glass!!! Nearly everything I saw was under glass-everything with the exception of the most luscious fruits and vegetables that were nature-endowed with protection from dust and dirt. But all the meats of every clescrtptton-the choicest cuts- IIIOZIAHQ steer beef. tender steaks, tenclerest and jalcest ltttle-pig sausages. anal tantalizing good hams ancl bacons-all were here in these glass cases fully protected from all dirt and impurities, and splendidly refrigerated in what I am told is the best refrigeration plant in the whole state of Montana. It is really an impressive sight to see the pains that are taken to keep the meats and product away from the little impurities that so often cause the little sicknesses that seem to be the result of indigestion-but which in reality are the result of some one's negligence in properly protecting them from the dirt. And it oc- curs to me that the management of this shop deserves a great deal of praise-for it has expended several thousand clollars. not in order to sell more meats, but in order to keep those meats that they do sell in the best and freshest condition. It seems to me that if you really knew that in addition to the most sanitary shop in the state, that all the meats handled here were butchered every day in a butcher shop operated along the same lines for cleanliness. and that if you knew that "your nzoneyls worth" always meant "a little more than you pay"-that you would be eager to try this market and experience the satisfac- tion of their unexcelled service and finest meats.

Here, in a little open park fringed about by timber which grew abundantly along the creek in that vicinity, was an ideal place for the frontier mail carrier to start the first cattle ranch in what is now Dawson County, Montana. At that time nature had not yet begun to feel seriously the effect of civilization. In the summer time, robins and other birds sang from the near-by box elders. Out on the prairie buffalo and antelope ranged, while deer were to be seen occasionally in the thickets along the creek. In winter numerous magpies gathered at the ranch to spend the cold months. Often on those beautiful winter days, so full of bright sun- shine, flocks of sharp-tailed grouse would wander about the place almost as domestic fowls. The ranch was stocked with two hundred head of short- horn cattle which had been purchased in Billings and driven overland to their new home. During the winter of '86 the worst snowstorm in the history of the Northwest swept over parts of Montana, The Dakotas and Canada. For days, with the thermometer far below zero, the storm raged, and when at last it had ceased to blow the snow lay deep on the level, and in many places the ghostly white drifts were piled extremely high. It was during the storm that about thirty head of cattle wandered away from the friendly shelter of the ranch and drifted with the storm. When the blizzard was over the ranchman saddled his best horse and started out to see what had become of the strays. For the past two nights he had heard the howling of the wolves and coyotes, but as that was the usual occurrence he paid slight attention to it. He traveled through the snow with difficulty for several miles and then as he rode OTHER 1 The nation-wide crusade against vice is caused primarily by T lack of attention to children's need for amusement in the home.

As the storm drove the poor creatures onward they grew weary of strug- gling through the drifts, and when at last they came to this place, Where the snow was drifted much deeper than elsewhere, they had not the strength to go farther. With the seeming stupidity of the cattle family they huddled close together, with their backs to the wind, and awaited their fate. Down in the little valley, while the volcanic rocks that crowned the hill on either side looked down in cold indifference, they made their last stand. While the cruel storm beat upon the helpless beasts, the snow drifted in around them and when at last their sufferings were ended in death they still stood erect. They were completely buried save where the snow had been dug away by the coyotes and hungry wolves in order that they might satisfy their ravenous appetities. Upon the ranchman's ap- proach these scavengers of the prairie slunk away to the nearby coulees, but at nighfall they would again come forth and by their chorus of the wild, they made the neighboring hills seem weird and lonely.
