Since then sgcfgfiog gr be 02. fp,m':xggl, the class has dwindied H5 down to 77. Lillian Hathaway will graduate Los Angeles, Cal., Mar- guerite Free, in Piqua, O., and Esther Tedrow in Middletown, O. We have been glad to welcome into our midst several from other schools. this year in During the first two years we did not organize, and although our class spirit was sadly lacking, we were dis- tinguished from the first by the gen- eral high standard of our work. In the spring of 1910, the whole school was saddened by the death of three of its pupils, Hattie Miles, James Best and Ruth Terhune, all of whom were our classmates. In the middle of our Junior year, we organized and our enthusiasm rapidly rose to a high pitch. We elected Lemuel Fowler, president, Lillian Hathaway, vice president, Russel Beck, treasurer, Marie Stauf, secretary, and Wendell Lewellen, sergeant-at-arms. We soon decided upon steel gray and scarlet as our class colors, and chose the Amer- ican Beauty rose for our official iiower. Our heads fairly swam with plans for good times together. Our Senior friends looked down upon us with a knowing smile as much as to say, "You will get over it." We gave our first party at the college and a happier crowd of young people would be difficult to find. Just before the close of school we gave our only formal entertainment, the Ju- nior dance. 'We met again in the fall of 1911, prepared for the home stretch, and many of us realized the necessity of diligent work. We organized imme- diately, electing Herbert Eiler, presi- dent, Helen Vance, Vice president, Ruth Williams, secretary, Paul Leffler, treasurer, Warren Freeman, prophet, Ruth Doyle, poet and Wendell Lewel- len, sergeant-at-arms. We selected "Nihil sine labore" as our class motto. In January the girls entertained the boys at a leap-year party at the home of Elizabeth Throolp. Later in the win- ter, the boys returned the compliment by entertaining the girls at the home of Mary Abbot. Under the auspices of the Senior class, the Wabash Glee Club gave a concert in the Commercial Club hall, April 5, which was greeted with a crowded house. And now as we near the end of our last year in high school and many of us realize that our school days are over, our good times are tinged with a of sadness at the thought that the class of 1912 will be nothing than a matter of history. note soon more Hazel Hardsog, Historian. Class Poem Come friends and fellow comrades, hear, Our many studies and hardships great, I have a few words to relate No one can ever comprehend, About the class, which all revere, But those who have endured our fate, The class so soon to graduate. Or four years in the High School spend First as bashful Freshmen classed, Then sturdy Sophoniores, Juniors wise, They call us Seniors now at last, The name we dearly love and prize. Some of us would gladly stay, Seniors now review the past, And studies again resume, Recall the rules we have obeyed, But Freshmen enter each day, Could not talk nor walk too fast, And we know they need the room. All on account of "The Interest grade.' Give cheers for the class of 1912, And be not seltish with your praise, Into school books no more we'll delve, For numbered are our High School days. Some Seniors shrink at the cold world's scorn just as all Senior classes go, Others walk in the pride of wealth secure, Now we are praised and honored too, That both the high and lowly born, "The Tide of Lifel' will o'er us flow, Shall moulder to dust is true and sure. We shall then sink from view. This Senior class of fair renown, Is different from the rest, This grand old class in cap and gown, What is more picturesque? Patient teachers for years of four, We Seniors can no longer stay, Whose patience we have sorely tried, For now they bid us go, Your pardon now we do implore, Some sad near future day, And hope it will not be denied. They'll wish us back we know. Climbing a ladder tall and great, As round after round we go, Here's to Juniors on this ladder of fate, For they are just one round below. Here's to the grand old school we leave, Seniors though this seems very strange Here's to the class so tried and true, When we with age are bent, Here's to the ones who for us grieve, We'1l see this building still unchanged, We know that they are passing few. And say, "That's where we went." -Ruth Doyle. Class Prophecy ifgvgir-gov UST about a year after that happy nifvht in 1912 . ' ,iq O Q2 when we received our diplomas, I heard of the i d ath f m favorite E753 ..J'-QA. J e 0 y uncle in Egypt. Later came the news that he had made me heir to his millions, on condition that I devote my life to a study of what had been his hobby-palmistry. As a year was offered me in which to consider the proposition, I decided to make a short visit in Egypt, where my future work was to be done. Conditions were so de- lightful that I could not tear myself away, but soon began the study of palmistry. Here the one difficulty lay in securing the proper fruits for eX- amination, but at length a bright idea struck me. I rnmmaged around and found my 4'Boy Craduate Book," con- taining palm impressions of my former classmates, which I used in my investi- gations. Here are some of my discov- eries: 52 Herbert Eiler, our honorable presi- dent, is to be editor-in-chief of the larg- est newspaper in New York. Here he will gain great prominence. in a few years being chosen as American dele- gate to the International Newspaper convention. Helen Vance will be superintendent of the National Observatory, continu- ing her investigations begun at the time of Halley's comet. It was at this time that Helen, having searched the heavens all night, called her family to behold the comet, which they all later found to be the headlight of an ap- proaching street car. Paul Leffler, the hard-worked class treasurer, will soon be a great philoso- pher, known throughout the world be- cause of his books. Among the most famous of his writings will be "Why the World Goes So Fast," and "Finan- cial Struggles of a Senior Class." Paul Burton will be baggage master at the Union Station and will meet with great success as he intends to study this profession from the very founda- tions. Closely associated with him in his work will be Ralph Cordle, driver of a taxicab, who will become famous for his speed record. Ralph is going to be a philosopher, as in his youth, and will be a driver in order that he may come in contact with humanity. I spent many weary days studying the palm of Wm. McClellan, yet I met with no success in reading it. Tired out I entered a theater, the phonograph started, I immediately recognized Will ls voice in a duet with Caruso. His wonderful talents have brought him not only renown, but also wealth, although it is rumored that he intends to give up music and begin a study of politics. In this field he will be closely associated with Lemrel Fowler soon to be gov- ernor of New York, and recognized authority on matters of civil govern- ment. The Fates have decreed that Eliza- beth Sampson shall marry a German count and live abroad, not far from Jeanette Calvin, the prominent stif- fragette. Both are soon to be present- ed at court by Luther Rice, the Amer- ican ambassador and diplomat. Mr. Rice will also achieve prominence by means of his books, the first of these being, "EXtermination of Latin Verbs." In the ranks of the class there will be two other illustrious authors-Carl THE MUNSONIAN. 15 Griffin and Fred Hartley. The former is to be a compiler of laws, and publish many editions of his experiences as a lawyer, while the latter will be known for his works on parliamentary law, always one of his favorite subjects. Two palms were almost identical and at length I decided to return to Mun- cie in order to solve the puzzle. The solution was not difficult. The own- ers, Karroll Smith and Elizabeth Throop, were blissfully married when I arrived. But having been away from home for some time, I decided to re- main for a few days so as to again see my old friends. I stopped at the best hotel and found that it was owned by the Misses Weikel, Snyder and Graham. They did not personally manage the hotel, but had a portion of their capital invested in the enterprise. The next morning I met Marvin Nichols, stage director of the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" company. With him I went to the ball game in the afternoon and we saw the world's greatest battery with Frank Samuels and Claude Miller in action. In the evening we went to Iiewellen's Grand Opera House, the largest and finest in the state. In the program was Madame Hiazel Hardsog, the great prima donna, who sang her favorite selection, "I've a Man for Every Day in the Week." After the performance we stopped in a confectionery and found that it was owned by Joe Swei- ffart. I remembered how industrious he had been in school. so was not at all surprised to find him quickly grow- ing rich. The next day we went to see the per- formance of the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" troupe. Grace Casper scored a big hit as "Little Eva," and the part of the mother, so proud and haughty, was never played better than by Jessie Heil. Mabel Frazier was prominent in the chorus, a position for which she had worked ever since that memorable oc- casion of 'KA Mid-Summer Night 's Dream." The musical director was Mary Abbott, who had studied in France and Germany. We managed to have a short interview with her, and she said that Europe may be all right for some things, but when it comes to talking, she prefers America. Just after leaving the opera house, we met Elizabeth Iiamkin, the popular mission worker. She has accomplished a great deal in the way of establish- ing free kindergartens and industrial schools and she invited us to attend cit- izens' mass meeting in the II. S. build- ing that evening. We gladly accepted the invitation, went to the high school and had no difficulty in finding our way around the building, for it was the ore which we had attended. We met and recognized several members of the faculty-Blanche Tuhey, head of the Latin departmentg Mildred Prutzman, instructor in Romance languages, Marie Stauf, instructor in twentieth century American poetry and prose, Ruth Sellers, teacher in Domestic Science, and Otto Huffman, head of the department of Applied Mechanics. Mr. Huffman intends to leave Muncie in a short time, as he is to become a pro- fessor in one of our large universities. The meeting was called to order by Principal Russel Beck, who, after a few well chosen words, introduced the speaker of the evening, Senator Ralph Mason. Mr. Mason has won prominence in the senate and is now being favor- ably mentioned as the next presiden- tial candidate of his party. After Senator Mason had addressed 16 THE NHUNSONIIAN the meeting with a few well chosen words, we were favored by a vocal se- lection by Mrs. Mary Quick-Notting- ham, the evangelist singer. We were told she and her husband, the Rev. Karl Nottingham, had done great good throughout the world by means of their revival meetings. My stay in Muncie having reached its close, I was preparing to return to Egypt. On my way to the station I passed a well known furniture store, in the window of which they were dem- onstrating mattresses. They had a bed fixed up and a man sleeping in it, to show how comfortable it felt, and just as I passed I recognized the man as my old friend, Earl Shuttleworth. The window was thoroughly artistic, being decorated with large posters bearing the name of the well known cartoonist, Mabel Winters. This store is in the new Wdman's Club building, which was designed by Reba Norris, and has attracted so much attention because of its beauty. The mural decorations were done by Elthlyn Smith, who came here from her New York studio just for this commission. Among the prom- inent women who constitute the board of directors of the Woman 's Club, are: Ruth Williams, the local correspond- ent to the Associated Press: Eura Butterfield, the daring auto racer and aviator, Ckecile Shaffer, the talented actress, and Marie Kirschner, dean of women at Indiana University. On board ship returning to Egypt, I met Harry Turner and his wife, for- merly Ruth Simmons. They intend to locate in Africa, where Harry is going to have a dancing academy and teach the natives how to two-step. We had a delightful voyage, enjoying several little social affairs in which the captain, Emerson Jones, and the ship 's doctor, Van Creviston, were prominent. Both had been in London a short time be- fore and they never tired of singing the praises of Harry Lockett, the Shakespearean actor, whose talent has won much applause in all Europe. Capt. Jones showed me a Muncie paper con- taining a long article about Harry and several other interesting notes. There was a fine writeup on high school foot- ball, by Merritt Guild, the sporting edi- tor, and a beautiful poem, first pub- lished in a well known magazine, ap- peared under the name of Ruth Doyle. The next page was an advertisement which I would have passed with a glance, but happened to notice that it was an announcement of the opening of the French milliners, Wolf, Kgnox 85 Moore. The firm includes Mme. Neva Snodgrass as hairdresser, and Mary Collins as manicurist, and they have a very beautiful and exclusive establish- ment. There were several cards which interested me, such as: Catharine Fay, trained nurse, Agnes Alley, attorney- at-law, Marie Snodgrass, dentist, and Hazel May, physician. Dr. May has worked with the well known. Dr. Ruth Mann, who first became famous when she manufactured a new patent medi- cine named Hliaugh Cure." At length we reached port, a short distance from my home. With Fred Covalt, one of the Custom House ofi- cials, I attended a political rally of the natives and heard an eloquent address by Hon. Ray Pittenger, the Y. M. C. A. secretary. Following this were short talks by missionaries, among whom I recognized Genevieve Hukill and Mary Tripp. After the meeting we started homeward, but noticed an immense sign, "Matrimonial Agency." Fred THE MUNSONIAN. 17 said he had always been interested in such places so we stopped. Imagine our surprise when we found the estab- lishment conducted by Beulah Curry and Helen Stephens. They said they had never cared for matrimony them- selves, but considered it a fine thing to thrust it upon others. They had lost none of their high school dignity but finally consented to go with us to a five-cent show. The iilm was highly romantic, so it was not particularly sur- prising to find the leading parts taken by Esther Byars and Lily Dragoo. The next day I returned to my home and long neglected work and have now completed the following palm readingsg that Alma Davisson will have great success as editor of a fashion maga- zine. Gladys Smith will be a librarian and will become prominent as a labor leader. Minna Silverburg will become a great short story writer and her works will appear in all the leading magazinesg James Griffith will train himself until he becomes the "White Mau's Hopef' Louise Dragoo and Ma- bel Gregory will have charge of a Green Trading stamp parlor. This completes the future activities of my fellow students, the members oi' the never-to-be-forgotten class of 1912. liealizing their capabilities as I do, I know that all of them will fulfill, and many will surpass the brightest of our expectations.

VVHERE Wlllll THE STUDENT BODY BE NEXT SEMESTER? GREAT deal of agitation has been aroused concerning our high school. Sometime agro the State Board of llealth condemned the present building as unfit for school purposes, and ordered that it be closed by July 15, 1912. There has been a great deal of discussion about a new building. The school. board has considered the problem of a new building! tor some- time, and the Commercial Club has also been intensely interested in it. But had you ever thought, "where will we have school next year?" Ik ,ls PK TllE tlliAlJllA'l'E OMMENCEll1ENT time has come , for the class of 15112. Four years ot laborious work in the Muncie High School have been completed. Now it is up to each graduate to show whether or not these four years have been Well spent. The great task is not finished but just begun. lf the graduate has not been self- reliant l1e must be now. lle is com- pelled to work out his own problems and light his own battles in life. No doubt he realizes that he has encoun- tered a few toils during the time spent with the dear old alma mater, but, in- evitably greater tasks to be achieved lie before him. lt is the hope of The Munsonian that the members of this class distinguish themselves in the world, in such a. Way that in the years to come the faculty of the Muncie lligrh School can proudly boast that that notable citizen is a grad- uate ot' our school. A short item in our old high school publication reads: 4'Make your mark in the world. lt is not quite so hard, maybe as you think it is, all you have to do is step your foot into the mud." A very witty saying but it should be remembered that kind of a mark may be washed away by the next rain. A very acceptable gift to the M. H. S. by the city school board is the Bal- opticon, a machine to be used in reflect- ing- post cards and slides on a screen or wall. lt is the best made in the lluited States. Various classes find use for it nearly every day. THE MUNSONIAN. 23 E hope the time will come When we shall l1ave our own printing press for The Munsonian. A press could easily be installed and a new de- partment in Manual Training be opened for the students. This would assist us in two ways: First, We would get the training for that Workg second, we could publish our paper at less expense and reduce the price of the paper. lk lk Bk .

Beside him and be- fore the great organ a young man sat with an impatient frown on his brow. The young man turned half expect- ing a stern, unyielding look upon his father's face, but the old professor was not regarding his son. His eyes seemed to have pierced the thin veil into that land of tender memories. Harold sat silent a moment gazing at the face of his father, then turning his hands softly slipped over the keys of the organ. The melody was less mechanical now, but it possessed none of the soft undul- ations the professor's touch called forth. Scenes like this were frequent in the Hammond family. The whole desire of the ,professor's life was that his son, the only remaining one of the family, might become the greatest organist the world had yet produced, and thus ful- fill his vanquished ambition. Unques- tionably the boy had talent, but it was as yet unawakened. " Let us stop now, ladf' he said wl1e11 the music ended. "That will do for tonight. Tomorrow 'twill be better." But Harold said nothing. Wliat was there to say to the kind gentle face of his father? It had been this way ever since he could remember. Every day he firmly resolved never to touch the old organ again, but the next day he always came again to play upon that instrument which he had almost come to hate, for he could not meet the sor- row in his father's loving face. Play he could, wonderful harmonies, but in each there was a failure to feel, to love, and to express, there was the sadness ol unhappiness and discontent. The professor silently slipped to the old organ bench and began to play the only melody that had ever aroused any feeling in the boy. It was a soft, sweet harmony that flowed out from the soul of the old organ into the boy's own, and filled him with strange hopes and vague longings. He listened in silence, his head slipping down till it rested on the back of the old choir chair. As the last sweet sound died away the old man turned and laid his hand upon the silent head beside him. Finally he spoke: "Harold, ever since you were old enough to know one key from another, I have tried, oh how I have tried, to make you love the organ ever as I have loved it, to strive for the mas- ter's touch 5 that touch which makes music live and throb in every heart which hears it, but you do not love it. I will not say you cannot-I still. hope, Harold, but-. Now I am going away. How much I shall miss you Harold, in the next few weeks you will never know, but it is for the best. You won't be lonely will you? You will have your organ though. Lad, never cease striv- ing for the master touch and although it seems now unattainable, the awak- ening will come." "The awakening Will come." The young man repeated his father's words softly to himself. He had been gone a month. Harold had missed his father and his long talks with Shim, and most THE MUNSONIAN. 25 of all the music. He could play but his soul longed for the tender feeling in his father's melody. The servants, Why were they so good and yet so silent. The low spoken words. Ilis father's letter today had said he would come soon. What was the matter as he felt so sad when he really should be happy. That evening he started toward the old cathedral. 'l'l'he awakening will come," he re- peated. "Father does not understand," he said, talking to a little bird that was balancing itself lightly on a little hush by the walk. He passed some little tenement chil- dren, dirty and poorly dressed, playing in the park. Ile felt a vague longing to be a child once more and play with the same care free light-heartedness that these children did. llis attention was then attracted by two little girls in the charge of a nurse. Ile noticed their wistful faces as they watched these children playing in the sand. He won- dered if they also were unhappy. Other people he passed all seemed to have a note of sadness about them. Ile entered the dim choir of the old cathedral. lle slipped to the old organ bench. Ile had been playing for quite a while when a noise at his side caused him to look up. The old family ser- vant with a grave pitying face, said: 'LMaster lllarold, your father passed away this afternoon. 'l The boy's head sank to the keys. "Father, my father dead," he Whis- pered. The cathedral chimes tolled the Au- gelus. llow long he lay there he never knew. Presently in the dim light he raised his head, his fingers slipped over the keys in that familiar melody his father had played that last evening, but the music lived, it sighed, it throbbed with the ache of a human heart. As the last echoes died away with a beautiful light dawning in his face and a joyful sob he 1l1llI'Illl1l't'll as if to someone beside him, "Dear father, it has come at last, the master touch."

Oh, my, what a long time!" she sighed dis- mally, but was smiling again the next minute as she said brightly: f'But think, mother, we shall always be to- gether then, forever and forever," drawing the words out and dwelling on them lovingly, Hand I shall not be so lonesome until he comes anyway, per- haps, for he says that a friend of his, a Mr. Ralph Graham, is to be in our city for some time and asks that I treat him well and make him welcome, as he is a very nice young man and also a very dear friend of his. Mr. Graham is to come on the fifteenth. Just think, that is Wednesday, and he will stay until Frank comes. Oh, I do hope I shall like him, won't I have a perfectly lovely time?,' Si' 3? SG S12 3? :lk :lk Mary Ellen lived in joyful anticipa- tion the next two days. On Wednesdayr afternoon she was in the library writ- ing a letter to Frank. She was inter- rupted presently by a servant who an- nounced a visitor. Mary Ellen looked at the card on the tray and read-"Mr. Ralph Virgil Graham. " She was so ex- cited that she forgot to tell the servant whether or not she would receive the visitor. After waiting some minutes for her answer, he said, respectfully, "Well, miss, what shall I say?" "Oh,,' she said, recovering her com- posure, "show him in, James, by all meansfl "To the parlor, miss?,' "Yes-No, bring him in here." The servant bowed and departed. Mary Ellen ,pushed the letter which she had been writing into a drawer of the library table. She had barely fin- ished when she found herself facing the tall, handsome stranger. HI have the pleasure of addressing Miss Ashby, have I not?" he exclaimed, advancing toward her. "Yes, Mr. Graham, I am so glad you have come,'l she said, cordially extend- ing her hand. "Please sit down." He did so, and she seated herself directly opposite him. The conversa- tion was carried on in a pleasant in- formal manner and when the caller left late in the afternoon they felt that they had known each other for years. Being thus on intimate terms from the beginning, they enjoyed each oth- er's company a great, deal. Ralph, as she soon came to call him, called at the Ashby home quite frequently at the invitations of Mary Ellen and her parents. S-carcely a day passed that they did not seedy each other. He took her out walking, driving and to many social functions. THE MUNSONIAN. 27 After a time Mary Ellen realized that she thought more of him than she cared to own, even to herself. She was greatly troubled when this unwelcome discovery forced itself upon her. She thought of how it must hurt Frank Lester, should he hear of it, she thought also of how true he had always been to her, he had never given her even the slightest reason for mistrust- ing him-and now, now, what was she doing. She pitied herself and won- dered what she should do. She knew that she loved Ralph Graham, and since that 11ew love was burning within her, she was not so sure that she still loved Frank as she had when they had parted four years ago, when Mr. Ashby had been forced to move west in an at- tempt to regain his failing health, tak- ing his wife and daughter with him. Mary Ellen brooded over her troubles continually. She decided that she must not see so much of Ralph, and tried her best to live up to her decision. She declined his invitations to walk or drive under one pretext or another, although it hurt to have to do so. Mr. Graham noticed the change and, seeing that his company was evidently not desired, although he imagined that he knew the trouble, concluded that it was best for him to stay away. He had done pretty Well for a week or so, but could not conquer the desire to see her longer, so one beautiful day, the day before Frank Lester was to ar- rive, he called at her home proposing that they take a walk. She was so taken by surprise that she had no ex- cuse ready, and her desire to accept was so strong that she found herself saying, "Yes, Ralph, with pleasure," before she really knew what she was doing. By Mary Ellen 's suggestion they de- cided to Walk up the mountain. They walked on and on, talking gaily all the time for both were in excellent spirits. They had Walked far up the slope, and were now on a sort of flat plateau. They stopped here to rest before starting to descend. "Isn't it delightful to be here?l' said Mary Ellen, as she glanced around her, then down, far, far below at the busy valley. "Yes, dear, heavenly-with you," said Ralph softly. Mary Ellen started. It was the first time that he had ever taken the liberty to address her in endearing terms. "Mr, Graham," she exclaimed in confusion, stopped-and could not go further. She was blushing crimson. Seeing this he leaned forward and kissed her before she had a chance to resist. 'tMr. Grahamf, she said accusingly, and there was no faltering of the clear, cold voice now, "I believed you a gen- tleman until this day. You understand perfectly well my relations to Frank Lester-your friend as well as mine, and now-oh, what will he say-H The tears sprang to her eyes-she choked and turned her face away, proud and defiant. Ralph Graham gently took her hand. 'tMary Ellen,', he said softly,-"Frank will say nothing only words of love. I am Frank Lester. Look at me, dear, and say that you believe me." She turned her beautiful eyes upon him, full of innocent wonder. "You,,' she said, looking at him long and stead- ily, "you, Frank?" "Yes, I swear I am, and to prove-it, I will give you this,l' he said, taking a small band of gold from his pocket and slipping it upon her finger. "Is not that the same one you gave me four years ago to keep until we should meet again?" She looked at the ring a moment and smiled at the recollection. "Yes, but why did you--why have you been de- ceiving melll' she cried petulantly. "Because, dear, I Wanted to Win you-" "Which you have done Frank, dear," she whispered softly. And now we Will leave them, stand- ing on the high plateau with the world before them.

At the breakfast table her father announced that the big comic opera company, heralded all been held up so long by the snow storms that it had canceled its engagements altogeth- er. UOI1, dear!" said Jeanette, "I've even paid for my tickets!" Being of the well known infant terrible variety, her small brother laughed teasingly, and Cin hopes of drawing tearsj re- marked for the thousandth time, "Well you'll just have to grin and bear itf' Jeanette disdained a reply and When after breakfast she noticed that the dayls motto on the 'calendar was, "Laugh and the world laughs with you," she half-wondered if Brother Tom and the calendar were not in league against her. Staring, or rather grinning at her from the opposite side of the street car as she went to school, Jeanette saw the lastest variation of the ancient cereal advertisement relating to 4'The smile that won 't come off." Jeanette was somewhat exasperated. HI wonder if everyone gets as tired of that ad. as I do," she thought, and turned to look out of the window. But there was nothing but snow and gloom outside, and the monotony became so unbear- able that her eyes wandered back to the grinning ad. When she reached school, after some delay, on account of the fresh drifts, she found on the bulletin board the announcement of an assembly, occa- sioned by the visit of a famous lec- turer. In the big assembly room Jean- ette listened at intervals between rev- eries of moody thoughts till she heard the lecturer exclaim with eloquent fer- vor, "Ah, yesl It's the man who takes defeat with a smile, that will win in the end." Then she thought, "Goodnessl How many more times will I have to hear that!" and she heard no more of the lecture, being lost completely in her thoughts. Things did not go well at all in school that morning, and Jean- ette was glad indeed when it was made known that there would be no after- noon session. She determined, how- ever, to lunch with the Martins in their down town Hat, as she had promised and do some needed shopping before going home. Airriving there, she was received in the hall by the two small daugh- ters of the house. Dorothy, the young- er, immediately informed her with great pride, "Oo want to heah Dotty's new piethe, don't 'oo? Me dot new piethe! Thwee 'ittle wules." Jeanette looked puzzled till the older sister ex- plained: "She wants you to hear a little verse she has learned." "Oh," said Jeanette, "that's lovely, isn't it. Of course I want to hear it." So Dor- othy joyously proceeded: "Thwee 'ittle wules we all mus' keep To make life happy an' bwightg 'Mile in the mornini, and 'mile at noon," But Jeanette had rushed out of the hall to find Mrs. Martin. Dorothy fol- lowed, running, with: hiAll, keep on 'milin' at night." VVhereupon Jeanette calmed herself enough to give the child the expected praise. After luncheon she excused herself as soon as possible, for fear that Dor- othy might insist on repeating the lit- tle stanza whose sentiments had be- come so strangely odious to her. Scarce- ly had she reached the street after leaving her hostess when there burst on 'her ear the exalted strains of a mov- ing picture show graphophone: 'l'Causc when you smile, love, The world will smile with you,"- She hastily turned a corner to avoid the blatant staleness of the melody, and roticing a photographers sign, remem- bered her intention of having a picture taken. She went upstairs, and after the necessary re-arrangement of hat and hair, she took her seat in the ,pho- tographerls chair. From under his black hood came tzhe words, "Look pleasant, please." Ten days later Jeanette was able to be moved to a private sanatorium where, surrounded by white walls and utter peace and quiet she slowly re- covered from the effects of that "Look pleasant, please."

Udle on the Death oil: Bury the old building With the whole school's lamentations, Let us bury the old building To the noise of the throats of her own creation, Mourning when her timbers fall, Weeping when the rats do crawl And darkness covers every hall. Where shall we take her I do implore? Here in Muncie she is a bore. Let the voice of those she worked for, And the feet of those she died for, Echo round her ashes evermore. Lead out the students: sad and slow, As fits this most terrible woe, Let the sad, worn procession go, And let the wailing crowd around it grow, And let the music classes music blow, Her last day cometh slow. Mourn, for she seems to us the last, Remembering all her troubles in the past, No more in stately grandeur will she greet With "gilded" hands the gazer in the street. O, students, our teachers harborer is mute. Mourn for the school of long-enduring years, The stately mansion, old and oft abused Buried at dusk with streams of tears. Mourn for the school of greatest influence. Still greatest in her special line, Buried greatest with least repentencc, Great in Latin and great in Math., Foremost leader of her time, Pastmaster in common sense, And all through her flowery path, She dehed him-Father Time. O, rickerty stairs which all have climbed, O, halls from which great thoughts were mined O. crushed at last thy tower of fame, Which stood tive years of condemnation. Such was she whom we explore, The agitation of years is o'er, The great walled statue will be seen no more. -Kemper Cowing 13 MJ!-ll. . A High School Play Time-Most any day. Place-Lower hall of M.

Another Bimbam! The glory of Hojoambo II was gone. Two Bim- bams in the world and he had only one. The shock tg the king was more dreadful evemthan. the courtiers had feared. To him the blow was more ter- rible than the loss of half his kingdom. In such blackness of wrath and- despair was he that the court trembled and quailed. No efforts availed to draw his mind from the crushing thought- two Bimbams, and he had only one. The singing boys failed to charm, the dancing girls could not make him for- get. Nothing but the one awful fact remained. The courtiers and prime ministers were in despair, something must be done. After days of deepest gloom the court mathematician came before the Lord High Chamberlin and asked that he be brought before the king, for he could drive away the de- spair of his illustrious majesty. Half in hope, half in fear, they led him into the presence of the royal rage. Hear, O king. We will, during this court mathematician, "your illustrious highness has all knowledge, and can understand the mysteries of even the greatest of all sciences. Will my most gracious liege ,permit his humble ser- vant to present a profound secret from the depths of the most hidden knowl- edge, which shall dispel the delusion under whi-ch his most astute mind is momentarily laboring. " "Hear, O king. We will during this discussion, according to the laws of mathematics, let X equal A Then will X2 equal XA. Since, if equals are multiplied by equals, the re- sults are equal. X2-A2 equals XA-AZ. For if equals are subtracted from equals the results are -equal. Whence by factoring CX-Aj CX plus AD equals ACX-Al. Then X plus A equals A. As if equals be divided by equals the results are equal. A Substituting from our original as- sumption, A plus A equals A, or, 2A equals A. Whence it appears 1 equals 2. It was there, it was true. No one could question that unanswerable logic. One Bimbam equals two Bimbams. The glory of the illustrious king was saved. He had one Bimbam, there were only two in existence, and one Bimbam equals two Bimbams. The courtiers shouted in their pride, the ladies wept for joy. The king arrayed himself in his most gorgeous robes and called for his musicians, his dancers and his poets. The chief mathematician was elevated to the highest office in the kingdom. A great feast was pro-claimed. The mu- sicians sang it, the historian recorded it and the chief poet celebrated it in song. " Great is Hojoambo II, who pos- sesses all the Bimbams the world has ever known." The students in 11A Mathematics had a very interesting time for a few days, solving problems for a student in the Scranton Correspondence School. This school is the best correspondence school in the United States for those preparing for any kind of engineering, draughting or machine work. The 10A classes have worked out ,problems for an employe of the boiler works and also for an employe of the Whiteley malleable. It is very grati- fying to the teachers of this department to know that their daily work is so closely allied to that of the industrial world. THE MUNSONIAN. 35 The Civics Class' Trip to Indianapolis One of the most interesting trips that the Civics class has made this term, was that to Indianapolis to visit the school for the blind and the school for the deaf and dumb. Twenty-two members of the class left Friday morning on the Meteor, and arrived at Indianapolis about 10 o'clock. We first visited the school for the blind which is only a few squares distant from the terminal sta- tion. The school building is an impos- ing structure of three stories, in the center of a beautiful lawn. There are about 175 pupils now enrolled. The grades are the same as any other school, the common school and high school. Many of the pupils are talented in mu- sic and they are given an opportunity to develop this talent in the common grades. When they enter high school they may choose either a musical, lit- erary or industrial course. Up to the seventh grade, they use their slates with which to write, but when they reach the seventh grade, they are taught to use typewriters. Some of the pupils exhibit remark- able talent in music. Before we left, several of the more accomplished pu- pils gave us a delightful program in the chapel. Their process of learning is necessarily very slow and tedious be- cause of their blindness. Perhaps the most interesting of all was the industrial department. The girls were sewing and knitting. Some of the older boys and girls were mak- ing cane baskets and cane seats for chairs, while the smaller boys were making various bead articles. ' The school for the deaf and dumb is east' of the city, about three miles from the business section. The contrast in the locations of the two schools is very decided. The school for the blind is in the midst of the hurry and bustle of the city, while the school for the deaf and dumb is out in the woods where the children may get the fresh air and be close to nature. This school now con- sists of four buildings: The main build- ing in which are the gymnasium and chapel, the girls dormitory, the boys' dormitory and the dining hall. These buildings are connected by a under- ground passageway, so that the chil- dren will not have to go out of doors in bad weather in going from one building to another. Three other buildings will be put up in the near future. These buildings are new, beingoccupied this winter for the iirst. They have about 300 pupils enrolled. The children are taught from the first grade how to speak and are shown the different posi- tions of the tongue, lips, and teeth in forming words. After several years, they sometimes find that the children have no voice. They are given opportunity to de- velop any talent for art and clay modeling which they may possess, but here you notice the utter lack of music. The girls have become quite' efficient in sewing and crocheting. Other in- teresting features of the work are the shoe repairing department and the printing shop. The boys do all this work themselves under the guidance of a teacher. Every two weeksthey put out a paper called "The Silent Hoosier," an eight-page paper. This contains items of the different happen- ings in the class rooms, baseball news and social and personal news. One page is devoted to their object of main- taining the school and its rules. Alto- gether it is a very interesting paper. T Hazel Hardsog, '12. 36 THE MUNSONIATY. ' The Library In describing the library as a de- partment in the IIigh School, We will consider it with respect only to the actual library work, forbearing to dwell at length on its activities in nu- merous other directions. I will brief- ly enumerate, however, some of the minor offices, aside from those indicat- ed by her title, which the librarian is called upon to fill, either continuously or from time to time. She acts as tel- ephone girl, secretary, stenographer, s-cout, information bureau, reception committee to parents, grammarian to the principal, and bell ringer. The li- brary serves as an assembly room archive, nursery and slumber room, and is a dispensary of blotters, erasers, rulers, ink-both black and red, theme paper, pens, penholders, pencils, punch- ers, pins and paste. Paste brushes were at one time furnished, but since the several borrowers have taken unto themselves to have and to hold, the various brushes provided, it come necessary to improvise Hence a brush designed for and higher mission has come companion of the paste pot. 7 has be- a tool. another to be a This is known as the faculty tooth brush. Thus it may be observed that the co-opera- tive method has been applied not only to recitation and assembly room man- agement, but to the minor details of ad- ministration as Well. We are all proud of our school, and with good cause. We are especially proud of our school building. We pre- sume that the majority of students ap- preciate their unusual advantages. It is not to be doubted that the members of the faculty fully appreciate their good fortune. It is a pleasant and not uncommon experience to see groups of instructors assembled in corners of the halls, apparently counting their many blessings--naming them one by one. It is not always possible to overhear the conversation or ascertain the subject of their mutual congratulation but the library might well be the topic under discussion. We cannot conscientiously say that we have the finest high school building in the state, but we can truth- fully say that we have the best equip- ped and best operated library. Our li- brary is, with one exception, the largest in Indiana. It contains almost 3,000 vol- umes, and is catalogued by the Dewey system. During the year of 1911-1912 the attendance was 33,344, and the number of books loaned was 5,065. No record has been kept of the students who came to the library for social in- tercourse, or of those who came to keep an engagement with the Sandman. At various times, courses of instruc- tion in the use of books, have been given by the librarian. Explanations are given of the various kinds of refer- ence books and of the information to be found in each. Practice Work is also given. The following notes from the librarian 's memorandum book may prove helpful to' those students who have not had the benefit of the library course: 1. An index is always found at the back of a book. 2. An index is usually arranged al- phabetically. 3. HaWthorne's "Mosse.s from an Old Mzansew is not "Moses on an Old Mouse." 1 4. "Mosses from an Old Manse" is not a work on botany. THE MUNSONIAN. 37 5. The table of Contents is usually found at the front of a book. ' 6. The table of Contents is ar- ranged as the matter comes in the book. 7. "The Blue Flower" is not a book on botany. 8. "The Story of the Other Wise Man" is not the life history of Prof. R. H. Tucker. 9. Besides the Contents and Index, most books of poetry have an index to first lines. 10. "Little Women" not approved by J. F. Bower. 11. A Bible Concordance is an ar- rangement of quotations from the Bible and is arranged alphabetically accord- ing to the principal words in the quo- tation. 12. "Mrs, Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch" is not a work on agriculture. 13. All general information may be found in the International Encyclope- dia, which is arranged alphabetically according to subject. 14. "The Spy" is not the biography of the librarian. Note-The fact that the librarian is not a spy is due to a board just outside the library door, which squeaks. The students who, at various times, happen to be in the library while the librarian is absent, and who take advantage of such times to commune with their neighbors, should have much respect for that squeaking board. It has saved their success grades many times. At this time of strenuous agitation because of the remote possibility of a new high school, it is not surprising that our continuous waking thoughts follow us into the stilly watches of the night and color our dreams. The writer has dreamed of a new high school for After so long a time sixteen years. the fancy can conjure a very fair vis- ion.

There will be potpourri to be opened in case of accident in the chemical lab- oratory. A secret passage will lead to an underground vat, where the favored visitor may view the remains, preserved in alcohol, of ancient class pictures res- cued from the old building.

'iOne time theys a man named Wil- liam Tell and he had a little boy whats' the cutest kid they is and the Devil come long and temp' him. Then the Lord say William Tell, you and Adam and Eve can taste everything they is in the garden 'cepting this one apple treeg you can get all the pears and bananas and peaches and grapes and oranges and plums and persimmons and 'bout a million other kinds of fruit if you want to, but don't you touch a single apple. And the devil temp him and say he going to put his cap on a pole and everybody got to bow down to it for a idol and if William Tell don't bow down to it he got to shoot a apple for good or evil off'n his little boyis head. That's all the little boy William Tell and Adam and Eve got, but he ain't going to fall down and Worship no gravy image on top a pole, so he put a tomahawk in his bosom and he tooken his bow and arruh and shot the apple plumb throo the middle and never swinged a hair of his head. And Eve nibble off the apple and give Adam the core." During the telling of the story one of the members of the class kept try- ing to convince him that William Tell Wasn't in the Bible, but they did not succeed. Tommy's Teacher.

A Bird Trip One day this spring the Botany class took a trip along Wheeling avenue and Minnetrista boulevard, for the purpose of seeing and classifying birds which we have studied this winter. The first bird we saw before we left the school yard was the English spar- row. This bird is common and can be seen' everywhere, and it is very de- structive to other birds. The next bird was the Robin, the harbinger of spring. It is a bird loved and admired by all, a useful bird and a good singer. Also a very interesting family of birds are the Woodpeckers. They are the guard- ians of trees by eating all insects injur- ious to the trees. All of the Wood- peckers have some red on their heads. We also saw the Sap-sucker and the Flicker, which is the largest one of our woodpeckers. Although there are many more birds of that group, they were not to be seen that day. One bird we watched a long time was the Ruby Crowned Klinglet. It is a small bird, about four inches long, having antolive back and a bright ruby spot on the top of its head. It was not easily fright- ened and seemed to be gathering small insects from the twigs. We heard a Song Sparrow across the river. This bird may be heard giving his cheery song in the dead of winter, as it re- mains with us all the year. When we were about half way around the boule- vard, it was time to turn back. On the way back we saw a Towhee and a Car- dinal, a brilliant colored bird, like a flash of lightning among the trees. Other birds which we saw were the Orackle, or the common Blackbird, Meadow-lark, and Blue Jay. 42 THE MUNSONIAN Nesting Habits of Birds F all the phases of bird life which we have studied during the past term none has been more in- teresting than their nesting habit. A study of the structure and placing of nests ,proves that men are not the only architects. The homes of birds are as different as their songs and other hab- its, because they must be suitable to their surroundings and be built in the best way to protect their young from harm. Thrushes and Sparrows, which are all brownish birds, and find their food on or near the ground, build open nests low down in trees or bushes or even on the ground itself. The bright-colored Baltimore Oriole, however, knows that he would not be safe down by the ground, and so swings a long pocket- shaped nest high up in a tree, where it is hidden by the leaves. The nest of the Tailor bird is similarly shaped, and is so woven and sewed together that it is almost impossible to pull it apart. The tiny Hummingbird, which has no strength to fight enemies larger than itself, hides its eggs away in a nest which looks like a knot of the branch on which it is built. The Dove builds only a thin floor of twigs and fastens it acrossithe fork of a limb. Certain birds, such as Woodpeckers, bore holes high up in trees and make their nests in them. When they have deserted these nests Bluebirds, Wrens and other small birds which nest in such holes but are not able to bore them for themselves, occupy them and raise their families there. Herons and other water birds usually nest in holes in banks near the water. There are a few water birds, however, that make rafts of twigs, lay their eggs on them, and iioat out upon the water. The Nighthawk and the Cowbird are probably the only birds which build no nests at all. The Nighthawk lays two eggs on the ground which look so much like streaky pebbles that they are not easily seen. When the young are hatched they are the color of the ground and are scarcely noticeable. The Cowbird selects a nest containing the eggs of some smaller bird and in it lays one of her own. When the young Cowbird is hatched it crowds out or kills the smaller young birds. If the mother bird notices the strange egg among her own in the nest she often builds over them all a second floor and lays more eggs upon it. This has been known to be repeated several times in the same nest. We can encourage our favorite birds to nest near our homes by driving away the Sparrows with poisonous food, and also by building boxes for those kinds which like such homes. They appre- ciate this protection and will return year after year to the same place.

THE MUNSONIAN. 43 Wire On Monday afternoon the 12A Chemistry class visited the mill of the Indiana Steel and Wire company, Mr. Nichols, factory superintendent, con- ducting our party. The first department visited was the storage rooms where the raw material was kept before being worked. The raw material consisted of very large wire or medium rod, wound in coils of about 3 feet in diameter. The first op- eration consists in thoroughly cleansing this raw material. A carrier on an over- head track takes up eight or nine coils and carries them to a series of baths, the first of which are acid. They are then washed with clean water and the remaining acid is then neutralized by calcium hydroxide. After this neu- tralization both the coils are placed on iron cars and put into an oven to dry and volatilize all acid and become warm before drawing. The cars with the clean raw material come out at the other end of the oven and are carried to their proper ,places by a large electric overheadcarrier, which takes up the Whole car and its load at one time. In this room the coils are weighed before going to the dies, where they are placed on Hpay- out" reels, one end started through the and fastened to the "take-up" dies reels, which pull the wire through the The die consists of an extremely dies. hard, thick piece of steel with several holes in it. One hole is larger than the others and one is smaller. Between these two are several different sizes. The wire is started through the largest one. Then goes through th' next in and so on until the desired size been obtained. The holes in the size has u dies are tapered and the wire is run in the converging direction and made smaller. These holes must be perfectly smooth and round or the Whole length of the coil would be imperfect. When the wire has been reduced to thc proper size it is carried to the de- partment where it is to be manufac- tured into its iinal shape. Some of it is made into nails and some into cables. Some of it is chemically plated with copper and some mechanically plated with zinc, in fact the greater part of the wire sent from the place is galvan- ized, as zinc plating is called. The zinc protects the iron from the chemical ef- fects of the weather. A large part of the wire is used for telephone and tel- egraph lines, and fences. Wire to be made into nails are not galvanized, but are cement coated. After drawing, the wire is annealed in some cases by ,passing through hot lead and in some by heating in a fur- nace to red heat and allowing to cool slowly. In these annealing processes, several, twenty-five or thirty, large coils are placed on pay out reels at one end of the building. The wire on each starts through the annealing furnace or lead bath, as it happens to be. It comes out red hot and passesl on through the air, cooling slowly and then goes through an acid bath and then through clean water. It is then clean and passes under the surface of melted zinc and retains a thin coating of that metal when withdrawn. The galvanized wire then passes through the air to cool and is Wound on reels. The reels are turned by ,power and pull the wire off the reels at the other end and through the other processes, so the 7 44 THE MUNSONIAN. action is continuous and the several baths are wide enough for several wires at one time. Wire for fences, telephone and tele- graph lines is then spooled or coiled and shipped. The machines that make nails are run at a high speed and make much noise. They each take in one wire, a head is hammered on the end and is cut off at the proper length and ejected. They are coated with a cement, consisting mostly of resin. The barbed wire machines take three strands of wire, one for the barbs, one for the barbs to go on and one to twist around the latter. The cable machines take any desired number of strands and twist them to- gether. The class was thankful to our guide and appreciated his kindness, as we learned some interesting things under his care and explanation. Paul Burton, '12. An Ice Plant There are various agents used in freezing ice, as carbon dioxide and am- monia. The particular ice plant I am go- ing to describe, uses ammonia Water. The ammonia water is pumped into a tank under 150 lbs pressure. In this tank is a system of pipes through which steam is forced. This heats the am- monia water and causes the ammonia gas to pass off. The gas is collected in another tank directly above the first. From this second tank it passes to a system of pipes Where it is cooled. The gas is all the time under 150 pounds pressure. When the ammonia gas is cooled to a certain temperature it con- denses into liquid ammonia, which is stored in a tank and used as needed. From this tank the liquid ammonia, still under 150 pounds pressure, is led into a small tank where it is cooled as will be shown later. Immediately aft- er it leaves this tank it reaches an ex- pansion valve. Here a small stream of liquid ammonia is allowed to escape into a large pipe and on account of the sud- den reduction of pressure becomes a gas again. This gas is under about 15 pounds pressure, and is very cold. It is then forced through an enormous sys- tem of pipes around which a solution of calcium is circulating. The solution or brine as it is called, becomes very cold. The tanks containing the water to be frozen are let down into this brine and left there for about forty hours. It is then taken out, being frozen solid. The ammonia gas is taken from these pipes and is led into a small tank where it cools the liquid ammonia just before it is expanded. Then it is taken to an- other .system of pipes where it cools the water that is to be made into ice. It is then forced into a tank Where it is allowed to bubble up through weak ammonia water from the first tank mentioned. After the solution becomes strong with ammonia again it is pumped into the first tank under 150 pounds pressure. The ammonia is thus used over and over again. Theoretically it would last for an indefinite time, but in reality, a little escapes here and there and ammonia water has to be added every few days. The water which is frozen into ice THE MVUNSONIAN '45 comes from Wells. It is distilled in or- der that all the air and objectionable impurities may be taken out of it, as ordinary water if it is not disturbed will be White when frozen. Cakes con- taining 40O pounds are the regular size made. The ice is kept in a store room which is built so that very little heat can get in and is cooled by piping cold brine around the sides.

The Moss Rose QFrench Story Popular in Chaucer's Time.j It was a most beautiful day in June and the little god of love was walking in the forest. Everything seemed so pleasant that he went much farther than ever before. Suddenly, realizing that he was very weary, he dropped down on the soft grass to rest. The little birds of the forest came and, gathering about Love, sang, 'tSee the pretty little Dove! How pink and white he is! How golden is his hair! What pretty blue eyes he has! The song was so sweet that tired little Love soon fell fast asleep, but the birds con- tinued their song. The Sun, hearing the melody, came into the forest. Delighted with Love is beauty, he insisted upon seeing his eyes, and would have wakened him. But the Rose, growing nearby, protected the sleeping Love and kept the Sun away. When Love awoke, the Sun told him how he had been protected by the Rose, Turning to her, Love said, "Gracious flower, in what way can I reward your kindness?" A Smiling, the Rose replied, "Only give me some new beauty." Love, surprised, said, "but that is impossible, for you are now the fairest of flowers." HNeverthe'less," said the Rose, "I want nothing more than an added beauty." Q Love turned away in anger and as he departed he cast a piece of moss on the Rose. It clung to her and she looked so beautiful under it that everyone felt that her request had been granted. From that day, each member of that family of roses bore a bit of moss, so that they soon came to be known as "the Moss Rosesf' A Senior. Pk Pk lk "THE MILL ON THE FLOSSY' George Eliot. The interest of the book does not lie particularly in the plot, but rather in the working out of the characters. The plot is at times improbable and a little tiresome, but who could fail to enjoy the realistic, commonplace, entertaining incidents in the lives of these simple country people, and the noble lovable character of Maggie Tulliver? One im- agines that Eliot shares with Maggie all her trials and sufferings and enjoys with Lucy all the happy little incidents of her life. Eliot is very artistic in her use of the Floss as the background of her story. She works it into the lives of the Tulli- vers and finally uses it as the cause of the death of Tom and Maggie. The end of the story is rather disappointing. Our sympathies are with Maggie all the time and we want her to have a little real happiness in her life. But in her struggle between duty and love, it is a satisfaction to know that she had strength enough to do what she thought was right. Elizabeth Sampson, '12. THE MUNSONIAN 47 "THE BLUE BIRD." By Maurice Maeterlinck. "The Blue Bird" from time immem- orable. has been the symbol in fairy lore of the thing most desired by man -happiness. The thing which makes him strive, wander and wish for from the time of his birth to the hour of his death and which always seems just out of reach, at the next turn beyond, captured now and then only to disap- point, to cause him to set his gaze on something else, farther on. This long- ing Maurice Mlaeterlinck has told us in an allegorical form in the play called "The Blue Bird." In the play the two children, Tyltyl and Mytyl typify the soul of man in his search through the universe for the "Blue Bird"- happiness. SF NSF 41' it SF 4? 'll' il The next scene shows them in bed where we first saw them. It has all been a dream of childish fancy. Start- ing up they see the "Blue Bird"-the real "Blue Bird" in their own home. Neighbor Berlingot's daughter is sick and so they send it to her. She recov- ers and thereby the children have found their happiness-by doing good to others. But the bird escapes and Tyltyl, stepping to the front of the stage, lays his petition before the audi- ence: "If any of you should find him would you be so kind as to give him hack to us?" 'Yes Tyltyl we will- that is if we ever find him. Thus the "Blue Bird" closes. Througout it is true to life, not only in nature study but in every other way. All of the figures are imbued with a life-like personality. They move, speak. talk and act like a living creature. And it is a true ellegory. Man. like the chil- dren, does not think that the happiness to be found at home is quite blue enough. He is envious of his neighbor's good fortune and sets out into the world to find it. But. strange to say, he sees that the happiness he finds is not satisfying and he eventually re- turns home and finds it in doing good to his neighbor. Evervbody that reads the hook or sees the play should have gleaned therefrom several lessons. He should have learned that "there are no dead" but that we are only separat- ed for a time. He should have learned that happiness is a perishable thing- here one minute and gone the next. He should have learned that in everything there is something that is here for the purpose of serving mankind-in other words, God had a purpose in everything that he created. L. S. S. '13. "PUT YOURSELF IN HIS PLACE." Charles Reade. Reade spoils some of his characters by his exposition of them-makes them too much like "common clay." If he would leave their characters to explain themselves, by action and conversation rather than give his own minute de- scriptions. one would have a better opinion of them. Nothing is left to the imagination-an ideal is no sooner formed than it is shatterer. Henry Little is not entirely the gentlemang a hint of vulgarity is often to be found which destroys our good impression. We rather svmpathizc with Hugh Roby in his opposition to manufacturers. The women are too feminine--tears and lamentations. unbraidings and injustice seem to be their chief characteristics. There are so manv minor plots in the F"W'Y that seem of little consequence.

It human power for evervthinfr but surely does Beade go beyond the real- istic and enter the romantic field. Ruth L. Mann, '12. lk lk ll! "ADAM BEDEJ' George Eliot. Many views of human nature are shown in the novel. There is sharp Mrs. Poyser, crusty Bartle Massey, ouerulous Lisbeth and trusting Adam. Adam is different from the heroes in most novels. He does not achieve his 48 THE MUNSONIAN. success through any remarkable astute- ness, but rather because he deserves it, and does what he thinks is right. This type of man is seldom made the hero of a novel. When he trusts Hetty so much and never once turns against her, even though he knows she has be- trayed him, he shows an unusual strength of character. Never once does be utter a bitter word against her. We can but admire the man who has over- come so many obstacles and yet kept his faith in God and man. . Ray Pittinger, '12, W SF i All of Eliotfs descriptions of her characters mention just those things one would notice when meeting those people on the street. Eliot in this re- spectlis a true representative of the impressionistic method of description. In this she is entirely the opposite of Scott, who gives his descriptions in paragraphs of details. Furthermore, she not 'only describes the characters and their actions, she tries to explain the motives. The interview between Arthur and Rev. Irwine. when he is about to confess his love for Hetty, but suddenly determines not to, is an ex- ample of this. A similar scene occurs in "Silas Marner" between Godfrey Case and his father." ' Merritt Guild, '12, i i i A "LORNA DOONE." Blackmore. . - Blackmore describes real people for John Fidd and Lorna Doone. The hero is a slow thinkin!! but stout-hearted man. Lorna, who becomes his wife, is beautiful, noble and pure. Carver Doone. unlike John Rlidd, is heartless. wicked and quick witted. In spite of his cruelty, however, he possesses a certain fascination for the reader. Ruth Simmons, '12, 1-arm V HTHE TALISMAN3' Sir 'Walter Scott. Scott's setting is a good one for mediaeval warfare, with characters well chosen for their parts in the story. Too much time is given to descriptions, very much elaborated, of unimportant char- acters. His character drawing is very true, more so than in "Ivanhoe, " In f'Ivanhoe" Richard is highly idealized, while in "The Talisman," his rashness, haughtiness, temper and pride' are shown in contrast with his better na- ture. Earl Shuttleworth, '12, Dk lk Dk "THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII.i' - Bulwer-Lytton. . ' The historical and nature setting of the novel is picturedvery vividly and is brought in in a very natural and un- studied manner throughout the story. The picture of the arena and the en- thusiasm of the people during the games are so real that we feel ourselves among them--spectators watching ev- ery movement. When the eruption takes place, we feel that we too must leave our places and rush along with the rest for our lives. ' . Grace Casper, '12, p xxx - "PRIDE AND PREjUDICE."f Jane Austen. The plot is well worked out, al- though the action is very slow. One is expecting Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy to propose at any time after the open- ing chapters, but they do it at the close of the book. Mr. Darcy is the hero. In his pride he steadfastly refuses to recognize anyone outside his circle. But he 'also 'refuses to be blinded by the ones in his circle and is sensible enough to change his ways when his errors have been shown to him, as when Elizabeth told him that his manners and bearing marked him as no gentleman. ' The most dramatic' scene in the book is Fllizabeth's refusal of Darcy. Here is the climax of the novel. The cutting sarcasm with which Elizabeth refuses Darcy and his haughty manner of lis- tening are very clearly portrayed and we see pride and prejudice meeting at their highest points.

Her patience ard motherly love are here shown and also her husband's patience, which was often sorely tried. I think it was a blessing that these poor or- phan boys had such a place as Plum- field to go to and I wish that many, many more such places were to be found now. Jo and her husband showed their love for these boys when Dan was presented at the home. They tried to reform him and were very kind to him, trying with infinite patience to win his spirit and awaken his better self. The ,pleasure which all the boys were allowed to indulge in, and the pets they were allowed to have, go to show the character of these two people who were always planning to give other people pleasure. These are the kind of people that the world needs and it needs a good many of them. Cleo, '15. X lk lk One day Anne, of Creen Cables, put liniment into a cake instead of vanilla.

It shows so clearly the fear and troubles of the people during the Indian mas- sacres. This shows faithfulness and bravery. "Silence" never once forgot her lover, David, and she was always thinking of him. This story also shows the super- stition of these people, for instance, they called "Good Crane" an old witch and the children believed she rode on a broomstick in the night. C. W.

He started out with a boy named Hodge as a com- 50 THE MUNSONIAN. panion, but on the Way they fought over the merit of players in general and Shakespeare in particular and Hodge returned. Just' as he disap- peared dovvn the road a man stepped out from the hedge and began to praise Nick for defending Will Shakespeare so bravely. He said that he was Gas- ton Carevv, the master player, and that he was going to Coventry. They walked along the road together until noon when they stopped to lunch.

"Fred, I want you to take the part of '0thello7 in my play this afternoon at the Wysor Grand, " said Mr. LeClerc. "Alright What time does the cur- tain rise?" "At 2:30 sharpf' replied IieClere. It was now 1 o'clock so I hurried to the opera house and threw on my cos- tume then securing a book I sat dow11 to learn my first lines. It seemed but a second until "Othello on the entryn boomed forth. I had just enough of my lines learned to mix me up and besides I did not know who was who. When I went to bow to the duke I bowed to an attendant instead. Then when Des- demona came in I did not know whether she was my wife or my wife's attend- ant, so I walked over and asked her who she was. She said: "I am Desdemona." Then I went on with my speech. In the next scene I racked my brain but could think of nothing. Desdemona seeing my distress held out her hand. Happy thought! I was to kiss her hand. But what were my lines? These were all I could think of: HO, Desdemona, goddess nymph per- fect divine! To what can I compare thine eye? Crystal is muddy. O, let me kiss this seal of perfect bliss." When I bent to kiss her hand I ex- pected her to jerk it away. 'She did not, this got me all fussed and I had to look at my book. In the next act when Iago is declar- ing the deceit of Desdemona before me I forgot my lines but I knew that they must be strong so I said: "Thou hast thou shag-haired villianf' This passionate outburst so confused Iago that he stood speechless. Now I came on the stage in the crowning scene of the play. I had a hazy. idea that I was to murder some- body for LeClerc had handed me a knife. Who should it be, I decided it mrst be Desdemona. I was to kill her in the dark so they made the lights dim and in the darkness I murdered my wife's attendant. Then the police brought in Iago and he confessed to his crime. I lunged at him with my dagger but one of the cops warded me off. I was cornered and should 'have committed suicide, but instead I made a break for the door, Horrors!

During the spring vacation of the Mrncie High School a party con- sisting of Pember Morrow, Paul Mauzy, Charhcey Medsker, Max Bragg and myself departed for the shack to stay as long as the "bread of lifel' lasted. Upon our arrival at the shack the first task to accomplish was the driving out of the field mice. Each one of us grabbed a stick, skillet, broom or any- thing that was handy and waged war against the little pests. Having com- pleted this Work we began immediately to cleanse the shack and to make it habitable for boys. We had division of labor so, one went to the barn for straw, one Washed the dishes, one cleaned the stove, one fixed the furni- ture so it would be fit to sit on, and the other put away the eats. After everything was put in order we pro- ceeded to make the bed out of the straw and having some straw left we sprink- led it on the fioor. Soon the little shack looked very cozy. Of all the work, I think the hardest job was washing the dishes as they had not been washed since the last meal had been eaten from them several weeks before. Time soon came for the first meal. Each one took his fork from his pocket and grabbed a plate. Then the rations were divided evenly as possible for if one got. more than another it would sure end in a quarrel. There was only one knife in the place and this was used for all purposes. In a short time the first meal was ended and the dishes were put into the creek which fiowed by the shack, and later they were wiped and put on the shelves. The next meal which consisted of ham, eggs and pancakes was prepared by Chauncey, he having been elected cook because of his particular skill in Domestic Science. Ile had taken les- sons from one of Miss Hughes' pupils. Before putting the ham into the skillet, he spit in the skillet to test its tem- perature. Mauzy in his clumsiness, knocked a glass can off the shelf and the broken glass went right into the solitary can of molasses. He rescued the molasses, however, by straining it through the dust rag. This came near being a tragedy as the molasses soften- ed the cakes so much. Those pancakes were certainly great, and not one went to waste, for what we couldnlt eat we used for a front door mat. When night rolled around each one fought for his space in the bed. Over- coats were used for covers and any- thing else that was handy.. In the morning the only way to get Mauzy and Morrow out of bed was to take of the lid of the stove and burn the scraps of tar paper which were cut from the roof. The smoke always had the desired effect. Day after day, and night after night the fun went on till the time came to close the shack. We then began to in- vestigate to see how much money we had left. After searching we found we had enough to take the bunch home, providing we walked about a half mile. This we did and arrived home safe. We looked like tramps, but We were never- theless pleased with our outing vaca- tion at the shack.

It does not require an active imagination to enable one to look down into the future generations and see throngs of students reverently observing the day-the great day--the never to be forgotten day-Miss G-tr-de Cl-rk's birthday anniver- sary. . . Years may come and go Cas years usually doj, schools and students may change, but there are some ideals which will never die, some customs too beau- tiful to brook alteration. So We can picture, in the years which are to come, earnest boys and girls standings about the ,portals of M., H. S. and saying softly, if'Ye,p, we don 't have to do no work today." Thursday, May 2, 1912, every school in the city of Muncie was dismissed for a half-holiday. Many people, consid- ering only worldly matters, thought this due to the fact that Buffalo Bill's Great Wild West Show was in the city, but we in M. H. S. realized the true situation. 'During the morning the air resounded with the music of brass bands. Again the ignorant masses deemed it the Work of Buffalo Bill, and again we in M. H. S. realized that it was done in honor of Miss Cl-rk. But the, afternoon was filled with honors which were not to be divided with Buffalo Bill himself. With her characteristic, never failing, thought- fulness, Miss' Cl-rk had procured enor- mous quantities of the most gorgeous flowers, which she sent to herself with beautiful messages of appreciation and approval. These evidences of love so moved the .faculty that they assembled on the parade grounds of H. S. and had their ,pictures taken, with Miss Cl-rk in the foreground, surrounded by her masses of flowers. fThis,beau- tiful scene" is reproduced on another page of this volumefj , The sun set after a day which had stirred every soul in M. H. S., and even Holiday now the municipal administration is Working to make May 2 a regularly ob- served holiday all because of Miss Sl-tr-de Cl-rk, 'l2. Ik ll! i We are the chumps for this old school We are the bunch to break all rules What we don't know we can't say, No use for professors, they're only in the way. Why, there's Chaunce Medzkcr, king of Clowns, A story teller of great renown, Cl"aunce's good naturcd and is fed on gruel With all the girlies Chaunce has a pull. But Lilian Nation she beats Chaunce a mile For romping and joshing and-oh, that smile, l-'ve heard of Tom Boys-and she is one, To beat her-kids, you'll have to go some. Carl Ramsey's an Artist-cause he can draw When he wants a nickel he "draws on Pa," When he smokes, he draws on his corn cob Plpey A f Everybody takes a sneak, everybody takes a hike. Here comes Elizabeth, Queen of them all, She gets them on the enKlein, gets them to call, n They're worked to a frazzle-digs up the dough- The bunch all shouts, "I told you so." Presto-Marvie Nichols appears on the scene, Pretty as a billy goat-whiskers shaved clean. Ask him for his powder puff, ask him for his chalk, Ask him for his best girl, Lordy hear him talk. V ' Well looky here what's come to pass, Why Paul you old sport, where is that lass? Such neglect will Keller, do you hear? How dare you by yourself appear? Kings and Queens, Lords and Bishops reign, But Keller-only the Bishops claims. Soi here's to Chaunce, Carl, Marvin and Paul, ' ' Lillian, Elizabeth, Mary and all. There never was before, "Qu0th the Ra- ven, 'nevermoreu' f'There never will be again," chicks the old setting hen, ' ln this old-school, Such a bunch cf Tarnation fools. THE SENIOR BASEBALL TEAM THE JUNIOR BASEBALL TEAM. THE SOPHOMORE BASEBALL TEAM. Athletics Early in the fall a great deal of in- terest was shown by the students as to whether or not Muncie would sup- port high school athletics. An associa- tion was formed and officers were elect- ed from the student body. The object of this association was to promote ath- letics in the high school. An executive committee was appointed from the stu- dent body and the faculty, consisting of four teachers and four students. It was decided to ,play inter-class foot- ball, one team taken from the Fresh- man and Junior classes to play one team from the Sophomore and Senior classes. Several games were played, the Freshman-Junior team winning a majority of games. From the showing the teams made it is easy to see that Muncie High School has the material in it that goes to make up good foot- ball teams. At the beginning of thc basketball season, the school procured the old Petty auditorium from the Y. M. C. A. committee for a basketball gymnasium. Mr. Bishop consented to coach the teams. A great deal of interest was shown and a team was soon chosen. Several games were played during the winter, but the school was unsuccess- ful in winning many. However, a good start was made considering that there has been no basketball played by the high school for three years. Spring athletics started with a rush. A meeting of the students was called by Mr. Markle, our physical director, to ascertain what kind of support would be given baseball and track work. It was decided by the executive board to have inter-class baseball and also to pick a "first" team to play games with other high school teams. The class games played up to date are April 28-Freshmen, 12, Juniors, 9. April 30-Seniors, 7g Sophoniores, 4. Nay 2'-Freshmen, 18: Seniors, 14. May 7-Sophomores, 53 Juniors, 3. May 21-Sophomorcs, 73 Freshmen 6. 3-Grd"-'.f-ff 4' x THE FRESHMAN BASEBALL TEAM. A game between the Seniors and Ju- niors still remains to be played. Eaton, 105 Muncie, 2-at Eaton. On May 3 the first team went to Eaton. Mosher pitched, a good game and except for the third inning when Eaton scored 7 runs, the Whole team backed him up in good shape. Miller as catcher, played a good game. Med- sker played a brilliant game at first. Tuhey also did excellent work at short- stop. Ramsey featured in the hitting by knocking a home run. MeNaughto11 also did good Work at the bat. A num- ber of rooters accompanied the team. Muncie 4, Eaton 3-at Muncie. On May 6, the Eaton High School team visited us and Went home with the small end of the score. The game was played at McCulloch park. Med- sker's pitching Was the feature of the game, although Tuhey, Samuels and Wliite did good work. The game was well attended and a great deal of en- thusiasm was manifested by the spec- tators. Muncie, 7, Eaton 17-at Eaton. On May 9 the team went to Eaton to play the last game of the series. A large crowd of rooters accompanied the team. The game was very ragged as is expressed by the score. Track athletics have never been ill favor in the Muncie High School until this spring. Mr. Markle, our physical director, aroused a great deal of spirit among the students and soon had a number practicing at the park for the various field and track events. Mr. Crabbs, of the Park Board, showed his interest in quite a substantial Way, as he had jumping pits and standards pre- pared for the use of the school. Owing to the lateness of our start We were unable to send a team to the meet at Anderson on May 11. This meet is an annual attair and we will undoubtedly be able to participate next spring. if 'rf 1' , 1 -- 'T.,,,,-...,.,m-mn-, f Ja f 2 1:1 LN'--Q, Y ii, ll il-"2 2 T311 - f'f f ' , K H ' g gi X ff277'i'X ,.
