History of the Class of 19112
N 1908, only four short
years ago, 162 pupils en-
tered M. H. S. Since then
fp,m':xggl, the class has dwindied
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
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-
'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
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.
Hazel Hardsog, Historian.
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."

Q2 when we received our
diplomas, I heard of the

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-
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

gate to the International Newspaper
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-
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-
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
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

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
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.

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.

that they must abandon this old

they do not have to climb the rickety

silver hair of the old
man. 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
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
"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

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-

in the park. Ile felt a vague longing to
be a child once more and play with the

then attracted by two little girls in
the charge of a nurse. Ile noticed their

children playing in the sand. He won-

him if I will, and of course I shall. IIe's

them lovingly, Hand I shall not be so

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
"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
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

They had Walked far up the slope, and

stopped here to rest before starting to

her, then down, far, far below at the

said Ralph softly. Mary Ellen started.
It was the first time that he had ever
taken the liberty to address her 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

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

The tears sprang to her eyes-she
choked and turned her face away,
proud and defiant.
Ralph Graham gently took her hand.

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

EANETTIEVS day began
with a disappointment.
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
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
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
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

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.

gallant gentlemen shook like aspens-
and the king-no pen may tell the ter-
rifying effect of these awful words on
the king. Another Bimbam! The glory
of Hojoambo II was gone. Two Bim-
bams in the world and he had only
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
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
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
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

had a very interesting time for a few
days, solving problems for a student in

This school is the best correspondence
school in the United States for those
preparing for any kind of engineering,

The 10A classes have worked out
,problems for an employe of the boiler
works and also for an employe of the

fying to the teachers of this department
to know that their daily work is so
closely allied to that of the industrial
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.

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

to be a
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

back of a book.
2. An index is usually arranged al-

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

to hear their master's voi-ce without
disturbing the master in his sanctum.
There will also be a bird in a gilded
cage, trained to sing as counter irritant
to the hum of the Ventilating systimi.
There will be potpourri to be opened
in case of accident in the chemical lab-
oratory. A secret passage will lead to

cued from the old building.
But the new school building is not

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
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
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"
reels, which pull the wire through the
The die consists of an extremely
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
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

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

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.

number of strands and twist them to-

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,

that they soon came to be known as

"THE MILL ON THE FLOSSY'
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

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."
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.

seem to be their chief characteristics.

This type of man is seldom made the
hero of a novel. When he trusts Hetty

strength of character. Never once does

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."

true, more so than in "Ivanhoe, " In

- "PRIDE AND PREjUDICE."f
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.

Why clear, not dark, no one may know,
No seer nor sage has power to tell.
If day by day we suffer grief,
Endure and show no sign of pain,
Peace follows anguish, light the gloom,
As sure as God on high doth reighn.

MY DREAM AFTER MY FIRST APPEARANCE AS AN ACTOR.
"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-
"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! I stum-
bled over Le Glerc's foot and down I
went. I awoke and found myself on
the floor. Fred Covalt, '12,

Excerpts from Letters of Former Students
"All work and no play makes Jack
a dull boyj' or in other words, "all
study and no recreation makes Jack a
dull student." This statement at Pur-
due University is never experienced
and scarcely known.
The magnificent gymnasium built to
the memory of the football squad of
1905, killed in a train wreck, is perhaps
first in importance to recreation. Then
there is Fowler hall which quite fre-
quently entertains a very noted speak-
er or musician.

The old boys have begun their hazing
of the more "fresh" new boys. I do
not mean, however, that it is anything
to be afraid of, but just fun for all
concerned, and at the same time a kind
of taming down of the spirits, and es-
pecially of the self-importance of the
new boy in question. The nearest thing
that I have approached was the wear-
ing of my sweater with HT. B. C."
on it. f
A good example of what they do is
this, last night three boys were taken
by some old boys and told to get down
under a certain window and "dig for
gold." While on their hands and knees
several pitchers full of cold water is-
sued forth from said window on the
unlucky ' ' gold diggers. ' '
We have seen several teams of oxen
go by. They are like those I remem-
ber seeing in the Evangeline land.
Twice there were about eighteen or
twenty, and once a whole herd fol-
lowing the cart which the others were
hitched to. I iind that it is almost im-
possible to write letters on any other
days but Sundays. All of the week
days, and even the nights, are so full
of work or play. After the evening
strdy hour we usually have a reading
by one of the masters, or a "sing-song"
or something else which takes up until
One of the teachers told me the other
day that this is the best school in the
country for holding the fellows down
to their work, of any in his experience
and another, a Yale graduate, said that
this is the stiifest school in the country.

The May Festival was fine. The aft-
ernoon was the New York Symphony
orchestra under Damrosch. Shattenck
Cpianistj was soloist and surely could
make the ,piano sing. In the evening
the Oberlin Musical Union gave the
Beatitudes under Prof. Andrews and
accompanied by the New York Sym-
phony. That was perfectly beautiful.
There were seven soloists, three of the
professors in the conservatory and four
out-of-town artists. They were splen-
did. The whole program afternoon and
evening was pretty classical but it was
fine, every bit.

Tomorrow morning, there is to be a
May breakfast in the town hall for
charity. Almost all the girls go. It
seems that it is a custom to have such
breakfasts in the eastern towns, here.
Doesn't that seem queer to us? I am
goingnwith the rest though. We shall
probably have baked beans and apple
pie. The people here are always doing
things for charity.

Our class banquet was held last
THE' MUNSONIAN. V 53
night in the Arts and Crafts room in
Abbot hall. A committee had placed
screens about all things that were not
supposed to be seen and had decorated
the table. We had one long table, with
places for thirty-three. The table was
decorated with purple, and white, our
colors. Over the center hung a basket
filled with purple sweet peas. We all
stood until Miss Kelsey came in. We
sang to her, time after time. Then we
sat down and ate. They had delicious
things to eat. We sang class songs
which the girls had written for the oc-
iasion, until our throats almost burst.
Then came the toasts.

g Our Shack
"Our Shack" is located five miles
from Muncie one and a half miles from
Royerton, the metropolis of Hamilton
township. 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. Paul Leffler, '12,
54 THE MUNSONIAN
Thursday, May 2, 1912, is a date
which will live long in the annals of
M. H. S. and in the memories of those
who dwell therein. 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
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

THE SENIOR BASEBALL TEAM
THE JUNIOR BASEBALL TEAM.
THE SOPHOMORE BASEBALL TEAM.
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-
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.
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-
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.

a tireless worker interest is? lf Julius
Caesar had placed one cent at com-
pound interest at 4 per cent with tlie
llank of Rome, it would by this time
have doubled itself 76 times, and
would now amount to more money
than there' ever was coined in all the
world. Figure it out if you doubt it:
double one cent 76 times and see what
it lirings you. Then perhaps you will
see tlie wisdom of saving a part of
your income, depositing it with us,
and letting us pay you 4 per Cent
compound interest upon it.
