Senior Class History
PON the green and mossy hillside of time, the Spirit of N. K. E. C.
sat blowing fairy soap-bubbles of wonderfully rainbow-tinted dreams,
and her face was the face of a little child. As the bubbles Hoated up
and away they seemed to reflect the years of the classes at N. K. E.. C.,
and from the fairy pipe they came, ever larger and ever more beautiful.
Timidly a little bubble appeared and peeped over the edge of the pipe.
It was very tiny and its color was the green of Freshmen, which rapidly
changed to become the blue of happiness as it floated into the air. ln it there
were pictures-marvelous pictures-of the first strange days at College, of
class organization with Isabel Boyd as President and Miss Kearns as Class
Sponsor. There were pictures of parties and classes which followed each
other in such quick succession that we had no time in which to be even a wee
bit homesick, but thought only of what fun it must be to be a teacher. Then
there were the cadeting assignments. The soap-bubble fairly trembled with
excitement as it showed that picture and those of the busy days that followed,
days so full of new experiences that they seemed past even before they were
begun. There were pictures of June, too, days of ,thrills and pleasures, until
at last they also had mingled with the colors of the bubble in a radiance of
joy. But one picture remained throughout the passing of the others, and even
now, although the bubble has becornbe a mere speck in the sky of memories,
this picture still is there, as it will always be, clear and distinct. It is the
picture of Miss Harrison as she stood before us on that opening day-a vision
of the true teacher and noble woman. Even now we can hear her voice and
remember her very words as she spoke to us then, and later on as she taught
us in "Social lnstitutionsi' the meaning and the glory of ideal family life. We
can never forget all that she gave to us-her last Freshman class-and the
message of her life will forever live in our hearts.
A slight breeze blew the little bubble quite out of sight, and now from
the pipe of the Spirit of N. K. E. C. one larger, clearer, more gaily colored,
came joyously and fairly leapt into the air in its gladness to reflect the pictures
of that second happy year. It was a rosy bubble, and it held picture after
picture of Junior days. This time the Class President was Dorothy Edinger,
and from the very beginning we seemed destined to a radiant class life.
Cadeting was over all too soon, and reluctantly we said "good-bye" to our
kiddies, leaving them in the hands of our little sisters, the Freshmen, who
were, after all, extremely capable children. Although we pretended seriously
to disapprove of them during probation, we secretly stood in great awe of that
Freshman class. There were lovely festivals reflected there, too-the Greek
bulb-planting festival in the fall, the harvest festival at Thanksgiving, the
wonderfully beautiful Christmas festival and the happy out-of-door spring
festival. The glowing color of that rosy soap-bubble seemed almost to be
made up of our various experiences. The thoughts that Dr. Monin gave to
us in History of Education certainly did much to give it color. All too soon,
however, the Commencement pictures came, glowed for a minute, and were
gone, to become another beautiful part of the sky of memories.
Clearest and most distinct of all were the pictures in the last bubble which
the fairy sprite has blown.. This, too, is a beautiful bubble, the most beautiful
of them all, perhaps. The pictures are of a Senior class-nineteen members
strong-each with a kindergarten position of her own-and the faces of our
children make the beautiful irridescence of this soap-bubble. There are
myriads of lovely pictures in this big bubble, pictures of parties, and jolly
small classes which were often almost like parties. There are our cadets, too.
What would we have done without these splendid Juniors and eager, willing
Freshmen? We started out a bit timidly at first, and the reflection of these
Hrst days is sadly obscured by the shadow of fear that would get in the way
of our work. But we have grown tremendously, and we're such enthusiastic
teachers now that we hardly seem like the same class that began work with
fear and trembling in the fall. Marjorie Sheffield stands in the center of this
year's soap-bubble as Class President, and she has most ably led us through
the vicissitudes of class organization, of raising money for the Hoover fund
fwe went over the top, tool and of all the various enterprises upon which we
launched. Of course we taught Play Material and Child Study and had a
beautiful time doing it, though we cannot vouch for how much the Freshmen
learned. All through the shifting pictures of this year there has been one that
has remained a guiding, steadying influence to which we have always turned
for help and sympathy, but to which we come with a new feeling this year.
Miss Baker, the President of N. K. E.. C., means everything to us. We are
grateful that we have her as our teacher and our friend, and we are tremen-
dously proud to be her first Senior class.
The soap-bubble of our Senior year is floating upward alarmingly fast.
Soon it, too, will be lost in the sky. l-lere's to the happy pictures that it holds!
What care we if the bubble burst? We hold the memories in our hearts and
the happiness of them in the lives that we are living and will ever live with
Some people are born great, others achieve greatness, and others are

The Junior Class of 1921
ID you ever stand upon a great bluff above a winding river, looking far
out over a level country, and watch the setting sun cast glorious light
over all the world, then see the dimming twilight creep up closer and
closer to gather in the radiant light and save it for the coming day?
The time has come when each of us is looking out upon our own future,
our own schools and the work that we hope to continue. We see it in its
radiant light, our hopes for the future. Many a Junior will be "gathered in"
and perhaps not see another Junior until time has brought us back to a radiant
day when we shall have a great class reunion!
Then we shall talk of the time when we sang 'iThe Wearin' 0' the Green"
and wept salt tears because the Juniors had us hopping to the post-box or
mending a ragged tear. The glorious parties of the Freshman year are things
we'll neier forget, but the gay times of this Junior year we must cuss and dis-
cuss again and again, for, you see, the most of us will be setting off to the four
corners of the world!
Now, clearest ones, can you cast your memory to the party that we gave
for the Freshmen? We did not tell you, Freshmen, that we were having
fun at your expense because you did not possess the worldly wisdom of the
Juniors of '21, but we will admit that we were lacking such wisdom the
Then came the famous sand dune trip. ls there one among us who
will forget the peppy time the Juniors had? It is not every class of Juniors
that can find the pep and fun that our own '2 l 's can, when the mist is misting
all around and there are a heap of miles of sand road to travel before the
station is reached.
Assemblies, did you say? Yes, indeed! Did Mother Goose ever know
that her beloved lines could be acted out with such perfection as that dis-
played by the Juniors? And could there be a more enthusiastic set than
those who taught us what an All-College Day means? falthough we had to
lose our trophy tin-cup to the Freshmenl.
And now that our memories have feasted, let us cast a glance to the
crystal ball of the future.
Do you not see our President, Katie Thompson, down by the far
Mexican border, "a-teachin' the little Texans about away up he'ah!"
And Marion Shoop, the best little aide that Katie had, for you know
she was our vice-president-she is teaching the happiest kindergarten in
Chicago, where every N. K. E.. C. Freshman longs to cadet!
See Dorothy Tuttle still chasing dollar bills-"Class dues, girls!" It is
a hard lot to go after those green-backsg so the crystal globe will show us
that Dorothy has a just reward for her services rendered.
May Whitcomb, the keeper of our class book-there she is! Look!
She is teaching the little Canadian tots how to make the cunningest things
ever. See how they watch her? Can they help but adore one who is the
assistant of all and the friend of every Junior?
But the crystal cannot tell of the future of each for the time is almost
at hand when we shall think of our Junior year as the most glorious of all
our college years. i
May the darkness that gathers over that setting sun find us each with
a heart and eyes set to the dawn of unfailing success, and a future of hope
that will ever be reaching to new ideals.
Why I Love N. K. E. C.
ls it because that this College requests us to write many papers and
items? ls it because Miss Schaffner asks of us that we cut out something we
have never seen in our lives? ls it because the hne dietitian we have or
because of excellent chef to make us fat?
Now l shall clear the mysterious "why" that I fell in love with N. K.
E.. C. It is because of the perfection of our President, Miss Bakery it is
because of smilings of Miss McElroy, it is because of the kind-heartedness of
Miss Thorpg and it is because of the inspiration and the great influence of
all the Faculty. It is because of the sweet relationships and attitude so friendly
of all darlingest girls around me. ln a Word it is because of the wonderful
personalities l have found in this College, to which l am greatly indebted. l
shall try to carry this inspiration with me to the other side of shore and use
it as much as l can every hour of the day among people both small and big.
l know l have not done any big, concrete thing to show my appreciation
of N. K. E.. C. There is one way, however, that can always show how l feel,
and that is through loyalty in my future work. Loyalty to myself, a greater
loyalty to our College, and greatest loyalty to God.
Needless to say that l had most wonderful time during the last few
years in the country that is the best friend to China. For all the good times
and of all the fine opportunities that l have enjoyed here in this College, the
remembrance gives me a rather homesick feeling when I think of leaving,
never to return-of saying "Farewell" to my beloved N. K. E. C.
The junior Class was called upon
To give to the school an assembly.
The committee pondered loud and long
As to what, when and where it should be
Finally, after days of thought,
With minds and tongues turned loose,
They all decided it would be fine
To play Old Mother Goose.
Then followed many busy hours
ln happy labor spent,
Before this little play of theirs
Was ready to present.
From her cottage into the garden
Dear Mother Goose came out,
And called one by one her children
To scamper round about.
Little Boy Blue and sheepless Bo Peep
Were first at her call to appear,
Then Peter with pumpkin and runaway wife
And Miss Muffet, greatly in fear.
Jack Horner with his famous pie
Helped Mary her pail to Fill, ,
And from a place not very high
Tumbled Jack and Jill.
And Old King Cole in robes of state,
With his skillful flddlers three,
Was guest of honor-and looked the part,
As jolly as jolly could be.
The fiddlers played a merry tune
And the children danced with glee,
At which King Cole was pleased indeed
And laughed most heartily.
Then Polly put the kettle on
And quick as you could wink,
She gave to every single one
A cup of tea to drink.
A mother with a baby dear
Sang sweetly a lullaby
And the chlldren softly dld creep away
Blddlflg us all goodbye
The people laughed and the people clapped
And we know they were glad they came
Because they asked most earnestly
To see lt all over agaln

Freshman Class History
N the thirteenth day of September, nineteen hundred and twenty,
seventy-eight volunteers enlisted in the Freshman division of the great
army of N. K. E. C. We were immediately summoned to appear
before our training officers, and when they had once decided upon the
type of drill we most needed, our period of encampment began.
We were marched to the barracks, where we discovered a bunk pal,
with whom we were to share equal responsibilities of inspection.
The first and most important battle in which we were engaged was that
of learning the order of our daily routine. Much time was lost in getting
correct squad formation, but we finally routed this enemy, and marched into
headquarters building with the assurance of veterans. We soon became
accustomed to the army regulations, and with punctiliousness we heeded the
call of reveille at six-thirty o'clock, and taps at ten. Then, of course, there
were the three mess calls, and at these times absolute military precision was
There came the time when we felt that we needed some head officers
for our division, and it was then that Miss Frances McElroy received the rank
of Major, Marguerite Frank of Captain, Florence MacLachlan of Lieutenant,
Elaine Strong of Sergeant and Emma Taylor of Corporal.
At last the much dreaded period of discipline was announced, and for
the ensuing month we marched to "The Wearing of the Green," while the
Junior and Senior armies stood by on guard duty. We received our practice
guns in the shape of umbrellas and held our first drill after mess, to the com-
mands of the Junior and Senior leaders. Finally, and none too soon, came
the last day. We were thereafter considered one of the strongest and most
efficient divisions of this great army. C
During the first part of our encampment at N. K. E.. C. a great amount
of our training was held in the headquarters building. But there were also
many times when we were ordered to take Held trips with Major McClellan.
On such days we scouted and foraged the country far and wide.
There were frequent dress parades where the Junior and Senior corps
held their first inspection of the Freshman troops, but there were also times
when we were given the opportunity of beholding our superior ranks in full
The Freshman division of N. K. E.. C. has made a very desirable record,
and we all hope some day to be presented with the Croix de Guerre as a
testimony of our distinguished services.
To be quite Frank, there was a fine Baker who had a very kind Hart.
Two of his friends were a Taylor and a Smithy. One days they went to visit
the Baker. The Taylor did Park his automobile in front of the shop while
they went in to see the owner.
ln the meantime the Baker's two young sons, Paul Weymuller and Mac-
Lachlan, thought'they would play ball in the street. The ball went Wild,
broke the windshield and sent a Schauer of glass in every direction. When
Paul ran down the Hill in pursuit of the ball, lVlacLachlan went to tell what
had happened. ln the Hall he came face to face with his father and the
visitors. When attempting to relate the incident he almost lost his Power of
"Paul and I are sorry, but we broke the windshield while playing ball."
"Why, you careless boys! Of course you will have to pay the Price.
Now, Neil son, and beg the pardon of our friends."
At this moment the other boy arrived. As he was of a different dispo-
sition, he said, "Oh, Heck! Vve didn't do it on purpose."
The father seemed Hjart-shorn and replied, "Weymuller, you go Pick 'ard
till most of the glass is gathered into a basket. l'll Barr you from playing in
the street till you can Seyboldf'
There was a young lady named Theo,

We have had some interesting meetings in Student Council this year,
which l know have brought the faculty and students in closer touch with each
other and have helped keep up the spirit of co-operation which is prevalent
in the College. g
Student Council is made up, as it was last year, of the officers in each
class, the class sponsor, president of student government, a representative
from the Annual Staff, a representative from Student Fellowship organization,
and Miss Baker.
We had a "get-together" party for Student Council early in the year so
that we would all be better acquainted. It worked beautifully, too, for we
had heaps of fun! Then we gave a big College dance in Marienthal. It
really was the prettiest dance ever seen at N. K. E. C., at least we thought so.
The house was beautifully bedecked with hearts, red ones, white ones, big
ones, little ones. It was lovely and everyone had a good time.
But Student Council has done something besides give parties this yearg
yes, it has even succeeded in ridding the College hall of all the scraps and
books and papers which seem to love to lie around and make our college
"look like what it isn't," and as for chewing gum in classes-well, that is a
But for the big things Student Council has done! This year we have
triecl to put athletics into the College to stay. A silver loving cup will be
given to the class which wins the most points in athletics, and we are all
waiting to see just which class that will be.
At Christmas time we raised money for a shoe fund for the Park Ridge
School girls. Later we concentrated on raising money for the l-loover Fund
and for the Chinese Relief. You know we have two Chinese girls in our own
school, and their presence has made us all the more eager to raise the money.
Two one-act plays were given for this purpose and were a great success.
Altogether this has been a happy year for Student Council, and the
things we have done make it seem very worth-while.

A The Elementary Club was organized during the year l9l9-l920. It has
gone forward in a quiet but forceful way this year. It is here to stay and will
grow both in effort and numbers because its purpose and aim is: To bring
about everywhere a joyous and purposeful life in the primary grades, by
keeping in touch with the work of the National Primary Council and sup-
porting its aims, by working individually to bring more activity and more
freedom into the primary grades and a closer correlation with the kinder-
garten, by urging open-minded, enthusiastic girls to take the course at
N. K. E. C.
Some Happenings This Year
l. Party for the New Members-
The "little dining roomi' in Main Dorm was the center of attraction one
night in Cctober. Why? The tables were decorated with lovely red roses,
unique place cards and clever candy cups. Upon this night the old members
of the Club gave a hearty greeting of welcome to the new girls. There were
toasts and merry drinking fAdam's ale, to old and new and faculty members.
One night there appeared upon the letter tray notes:
"The Elementary Club will meet
And to the new members give a clue treat.
Wednesday, December six, is the date,
And you, a new member, we will initiate."
What does it all mean? What will happen? Everyone was eager to
learn. After it was over, the faces were brighter, happier and much relieved,
and every new girl was proudly displaying her pin, which each Elementary
Club member has the privilege of wearing.
Some Happenings to Be
We are looking forward now with much enthusiasm to two Big Events
which are to come:
l. The play of Sleeping Beauty, to be given for the Community by the
Elementary Club, with the assistance of the Class in Elementary Projects.
ll. The Luncheon, the crowning event of our year, when we hope to
have Miss Ella Victoria Dobbs, President of the National Council of Primary
Education here with us.
Our Community Club
Victor Hugo has said in Les Miserables, "A priest's door should be
always open, and a bishop's door should be never closed." This is equally
true of the door of the schoolmaster.
Our beloved College has opened its door to the community. Two hun-
dred boys and girls, men and women, share our "homey" atmosphere every
week. The splendid pictures on our walls, the books in our library, our
statuary, the inviting glow of color in the chintz at the windows and window
seats, the fragrance of potted plants and flowers in vases, the cheery chirp of
the finches in the primary room, the cordial dolly who dwells in the play
home of the kindergarten, and the cooling drink from the fountain in the
reception hall have all become a community privilege for those who come in
from the neighborhood for a class, a club or recreational games.
As we look into the happy and interested faces of the members of our
Community Club who come into our assembly hall once a week for a picture
or a lecture or a musical program, we realize how much happier we are when
we share our privileges with our friends and neighbors.
No city in the world has a greater wealth in sincere democratic manhood
and womanhood than the City of Chicago. We have had the most stimulating
co-operation from every agency for culture in the city. Everyone to whom we
have appealed for programs and assistance has been generous and enthusiastic
in his response. The Musician's Club of Women gave an entire evening of
music rendered by artists from their club. Mr. George Tenny of Lewis
Institute brought a quartet which provided an entire program of song. Pic-
tures with lectures were given by Mr. Jens Jensen, Chicago's noted landscape
architect, Mr. Ransom Kennicott of the Forest Preserves, Mr. Francis Arnold
of our faculty, Mr. R. Patterson of the Public Library and Mrs. Charles
Millspaugh of the Field Museum.
The Woman's City Club has furnished a speaker for every fourth Thurs-
day evening in the month from january to june. Mr. Harry de Joannis of
the Chicago Booster Publicity Club gave a talk on "Interesting Points in Chi-
cago," and Miss Helen Montigrifto, Secretary of the Woman's City Club, gave
a talk on the privilege of voting. Dr. Schmitt of our faculty, one of the
staff of Child Study Experts in the Chicago Public Schools, gave a talk on
Artistic and entertaining plays have been given for the Community Club
by the Junior Class of the Kindergarten College and by the Elementary Girls.
Miss Bertha Iles, President of the Chicago College of Dramatic Education,
gave a talk and her group of Players gave a very charming play. Mr. Herbert
Hyde of the Civic Music Association sent to us one hundred community sing-
ing books and twenty-five free tickets for the Junior Symphony Orchestra.
There have been many kindnesses extended by people of the community.
The young women of the Columbia College of Expression and the American
College of Physical Education have generously given programs and instruc-
tion. The young women of our college have assisted in sincere co-operation
with every effort put forth. The Recreational Games, the Millinery Class, the
Weekly Assembly, the Parliamentary Law Class, the Story l-lour, the Boosters'
Club, the Junior Sewing Class, the Dancing Class, the Players' Group of Boys
and Girls, the Flower Club, the Campfire Girls and the Boy Scouts have all
felt the sincere hospitality extended by members of the faculty and the stu-
dent body in the College.
The Players' Group have been led into the joys of dramatization and
the make-believe work through the generosity and genius of Miss Mary Taft
and Mr. Perry Corneau.
During the past five months there has been a reciprocal advantage for
both community and school. With the door of the school building always
open there flows out a constant stream of cultural influence which is vital only
as it blends with the reality in human experience as we find it in community
Come, let us live with our people in fellowship and service.

Director of Community Education.
Seniors, Juniors, Freshmen, awake!
Thereis a silver loving cup at stake
For the class that has the vim,
And for athletics buckles in.
So awake, O National girls, awake!
National Kindergarten and Elementary girls are out for athletics stronger
than ever before. Hiking clubs have been organized to go on different trips
to the country fthough they haven't yet Uhikednl, and on various occasions
we have been invited to join the Prairie Club on their hikes to the suburbs of
Chicago, but their programs are rather strenuous for amateurs.
The tennis fans are seen every night after school hours, and in the early
morning, practicing on the Avilla court and at Washington Park courts for the
Swimming created the greatest sensation of all and is the favorite pastime
of some girls. For a short time classes were held at the Y. W. C. A. on Mon-
day and Saturday nights.
Wednesday night is Game Night from seven to eight. Miss Gibson,
from the Columbia College of Physical Education, has charge of the games.
During the cold months we have played games in the Assembly l-lall, but in
the spring we hope to play out of doors. Volley ball and relay races form
the chief attraction. If you want to see a real exhibition of pep, just present
yourself at this time. i'We've got the pep as well as the rep, and everything
else worth while."
The girls are keenly interested, and we hope to have a real gym in our
College in the near future.

ARIENTHAI.. is the oldest of the houses, but in spite of for perhaps
because of, its age, it is the best. The girls of the other dorms may
talk about their houses, but they all come here when they want to
eat or dance-and what else is there to College life anyway?
p FTER unpacking our trunks and putting up his picture, and incidentally a
p few other pictures and hangings, with the assistance of no-nosed John,
Q we felt at home and decided to get acquainted with our neighbors. A fancy-
dress party solved the problem of 'inothing to wear." Friendships flourished
so fast and furiously that before the evening was over Dr. Marion Fleming,
after marrying Mr. H. Weymuller and Miss Ruth Henning, had the unusual
pleasure of consoling the bride's weeping mother by marrying her himself.
ATIONS having grown rather monotonous by November, boxes from home
' were received with great rejoicing, especially the cakes that Alvey's
lx mother makes, not to mention Ruth Cooper's candy and Lois l'larmon's fried
chicken. Mrs. Hooper and Miss Crosby planned such a Thanksgiving dinner
l that Blanche, Fern, Nell l-ludlow and the other paying guests almost thought
l they were home. Lucy for once had an opportunity to nap without being
l interrupted by classes. And we know that lsabel enjoyed the holiday because
she returned with a diamond.
li INDUSTRIOUS Louise bought and wrapped all of her Christmas gifts while
, we were still pruning our lists to match our bank accounts. We wonder
l if Helen Hornby ever did finish the red shawl for her mother, and if Mildred
Schauer bought all of the organdie in town for flowers.
EXCITEMENT ran high at the Christmas party, and "the children" grew
hilarious over the useful gifts that Santa Claus distributed. Thanks to
Dorothy French and her committee, the party decorations were a huge suc-
cess. Of course, having celebrated her birthday for a month, parties were
quite in her line.

VlLl..A l'l0USE.l-those two words mean many things to us who live
here, but most of all they mean a wonderful house mother and real
friends, both of which could never be forgotten.
Yes, there have been some red-letter happenings in the old
Homestead this year-most gorgeous of which was the "red, white and blue"
tea. Everyone dressed up and came. We sipped tea and ate cakes while
some of our own clear sisters entertained now and then with a song or dance.
We had one man, too, who was passed around very generously when we began
dancing. lVlrs. Clarke said that she was proud of all of us, but we give "Bing"
almost the whole credit, for she was the instigator and the promoter from
beginning to end.
Next in degree of importance comes the night we entertained our Hboysu
at dinner. Some of us did get a bit Hroutyn when they dicln't show up on
time, but by seven o'clock we were all partaking of the veal chops that Miss
Crosby had planned especially. After dinner we came over to Avilla House
and tripped the light fantastic to the strains of the A. K. orchestra.
On several other occasions some of the social butterflies enticed their
young men friends to come in, and whiled the evening away by dancing to
our new rolls of mliell Me" and "Underneath the Palms." But that idea faded
away, just as our Thursday night parties did. We had them religiously during
the first part of the year. We all came draped up in some original way,
featured a few tricks, then had a goop and it was time to go home. Either we
ran out of costumes or funds, for now Thursday night is just like any other
night in the week.
Then there's the rummage sale that happens about once a month. lcla
Shand is generally the grand stand speaker. We think she would make a
good partner for lVlr. Goldstein. Anyway, the next morning you can't tell
whether you are meeting lde or her understudy.
And of course there must be the item about the telephone. That's the
sore point, for there have been more harsh words over that innocent telephone
than any other piece of furniture in the house. You see, some of the sisters
forget how to tell time when they begin talking, and a suggestion of "Ten
lVlinutes" from several different parties often spurs on the conversation instead
of suppressing it. As an improvement to the house we suggest a private tele-
phone for each girl. Even the boys like this idea, for some of them waste

But after all is said and done, hasn't this been a real year to every one
of us? Won't we always look back on this as one of the best years in our
lives? And why? just because Mrs. Clarke has been a perfect hostess in
our home and a real mother to each and every one of us.

South House was plunged into mourning February fifteenth upon receipt
of the news of the death of Henry Ford, received by Marguerite F., which
read as follows:
Henry Ford passed away February l5, l92l after a
short but painful illness. He is survived by five badly
worn and cut tires, a motor which has contracted the saint
vitus dance, and a history that could tell many happy
experiences. His passing will be grieved by all his
friends, even though he were only a poor oil can.
The problem of South l-louse is baths. Especially on third floor-ask
Cecelia Tolonen, who would have thought it of you? We thought you
such a demure maiden. But on that memorable night when you appeared in
your robe of salmon pink and a jaunty black sailor hat over one eye and your
roommate's fur, asking at each door if we wanted a nurse maid, giving
N. K. E.. C. as a reference, you thoroughly disillusioned us.
Out of the depths of a peaceful study hour comes the hearty laugh of
our dear little Pick, ever ready to keep us gay.
It was awfully hard to get the lights out at ten o'clock, lsabel, but we
really did try.

fTaken from a Diary,
Last night a bunch of us were lazily sitting around, having a jolly time
in my room, playing our ukeleles and singing, when suddenly there came a
rap at the door. Thinking it one of the girls we paid no attention until it
came the second time. Then, irritated by the formality of the thing, someone
shouted a lusty and none too civil "Come in!" No one came, so, deciding
it was meant for a practical joke we turned once more to the business in
hand, merely calling "Well, go on, stay out then." Feature our consternation
when the door slowly opened and we beheld the most dignified member of
our Faculty! fQuery of Faculty critic: "Who is the most dignified member

Through the golden haze of early September fand the soot of Chicago,
is revealed a gray stone house with a welcoming figure, our house-mother, in
the doorway and several eager, confident "old" girls running to greet her and
renew old friendships. Many a "new" girl ascends the steps and bravely
shakes away the tears of homesickness with the assurance of a warm welcome.

voices of reunited friends.
The "old" girls are hostesses at a Welcome-to-North-House party for
the new girls. The prevailing costume is "evening-dress," and the refresh-

The "Vic" takes the leading role in the scene.

A heavy cloud has settled down on our family. All intercourse between

"new" girls wear green ribbons on their ankles. The "old" girls, secretly
sympathetic but loyally bound to discipline, alternately comfort outraged
freshmen and impose rules on the wayward.

Facts About the Faculty
ISS BAKER is a direct descendant of Deacon John Denham, who
landed from the Mayflower in l620. At present she is endeavor-
ing to establish a relationship between the Deacon and Colonel
Jacob Baker, one of George Washington's officers, whose fortune
of S800,000,000 is soon to be divided among any who can prove themselves
heirs. As yet there is a missing link. Should she succeed in inheriting a few
million dollars, Miss Baker will construct three handsome buildings for the
use of the National Kindergarten and Elementary College.
Miss Shaffner lives with her two sisters in the beautiful home which was
built by her father. Recently they sold the house and moved into an apart-
ment. They were so homesick that in a few weeks they bought the house
again. They lost some money in the deal, but were glad to be at home.
At present Miss Shaffner uses the ballroom for an art studio. We suppose
that she dances with joy when any Junior succeeds in creating a design which
is not spots.
We have heard that Miss McElroy, besides having a smile, owns con-
siderable real estate. Why are the men so dull?
Mrs. Kohlsaat's son Daniel will enter college in the fall. What, when
Daniel is away, will Mrs. Kohlsaat find to say?
It is reported that Miss Georgia McClellan and Miss Clara Baker will
attend Columbia University this summer. Let us hope that they do not learn
anything more about the Project Method.
Miss Hooper is planning soon to test the faculty. Probably their l. Q.'s'
will be published in the News Bulletin this summer.
Alas! Miss Bessie McGill is going to Florida to live. Will there be any
more posters in the library?
Miss Winter's father has just returned from a business trip to South
America. Miss Winter plans to travel with him when she retires from buying
draperies at the College.
Miss Farrar still forgets where she has left her checks and when her
classes meet. We have asked her about her future plans, but she has forgotten
Miss Williams is taking a course in Religious Education at the University.
It is hoped that she will be less wild as a result.
All the faculty envy Miss Kearns that red quill pen. Doubtless the busi-
ness men who visit her office also do.
Stop, thief! You may have Miss Thorp's money, but please do not take
Mr. Arnold uses both German and French fluently. He speaks Italian
and Spanish. He also enjoys conversing in English.
Mrs. Tatum believes in fairies. No doubt she thinks herself in fairyland
during the Senior speeches.
After the oysters and grapefruit of Sanibel Island, Miss Hemingway finds
the diet in Chicago exceedingly diminutive. But, anyway, her presence adds
sweetness and spice for the rest of us.

Some of My Treasures
AM the possessor of a large, well-lighted picture gallery. My ownership
of it is known to but few of my friends. l have never reported it to the
City Assessor, although some of my pictures are beyond' estimate in their
financial value. l am inviting you to come with me into my picture
gallery, which is concealed from the general public, Where l will show you a
few of my favorite pictures. There are too many for you to examine them all,
as l well know the truth of l-lawthorne's saying: iiweariness haunts great
This first room is devoted to American scenery. On beyond are my
pictures from Central and South America and from Europe. Still beyond is
my portrait gallery, in which are some of my most precious treasures. There
are three or four old faces framed by gray hair, but with young eyes looking
out upon life. Then there are some portraits of fresh, young faces that are
my delight. Some of them Raphael and Perugino might have used in their
pictures of the Madonna. Others are as roguish and as frank as anything
painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds or Rubens. But l must stop talking and begin
to show you the pictures.
This one at the right is called "Early Morning in the Arizona Desert."
None of the pictures of John Van Dyke, with which I am familiar, compare
with it in brilliancy of color or in loneliness of feeling. Note the long, level
stretch of red sand, reaching far off until it meets the cerulean blue in the
background. There is not even a tired-looking, gray-green bit of sage brush
to relieve the solitude of the place. Yet, in the center of this picture stands
a tall, slender white birch tree. You will note that it is an autumn scene, as
the leaves of the birch are almost golden in the brilliancy of their upper sur-
face and the bark glistens in the silvery whiteness against the background of
dull red sand and brilliant blue sky. l have never seen anything in Oriental
art more brilliant than this combination of red, blue, gold and silvery white.
But come, we must not stay too long before one picture.
Over here, on the opposite wall, is a picture that is called "Hurricane
Island." It is seventy-five miles off the coast of the southeastern corner of
,lVlaine. Note the dull gray sky, the sullen gray sea and the huge, stern-
looking gray granite rock that rises from a depth of a mile or two below the
surface of the sea, where it connects with the foundation of the Berkshire
Hills and the Allegheny Mountains. Whistler would call this picture "A
Symphony in Gray." On the southern slope of the island are to be seen a
number of small stone huts, riveted to the rock by bands of iron, in order
that they may not be swept off into the sea by the hurricanes from the North
Pole which rush down each year in a vain effort to overthrow this rocky
promontory. From it is shipped annually the most beautiful gray granite of
all New England to the principal cities of the Atlantic coast. After l had
been told of these quarrymen who sometimes live for years on the island,
never seeing a spear of grass or hearing the song of a bird, the picture took
on new value for me, for it no longer represented desolation, but great cour-
age that under the most adverse circumstances could still serve humanity.
But l must not philosophize too much, or you will not begin to appreciate
how lovely my pictures are.
Now, here is one of my really great pictures. It is entitled "Sunset in
the Sierra Madre Mountains." You will note in the foreground a roughly
built shack or cabin of the early California days. On the front steps sits a
little boy with his elbow resting on his knee and his chin resting on his hand.
Near by is a large, old chestnut tree, measuring from outer limb to outer limb
three times the length of the cabin it seems to be protecting. You see at once
that the boy is gazing upon the unbelievable splendor of a Southern California
sunset among the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Tier after tier of
mountain ranges rises on each side, and at the back are the foothills and the
lower mountains which surround 'iOld Baldy," whose summit is covered with
snow. Note the long range of violet mountains in the north, where the
shadows have mingled with the prismatic colors of the sunset. At the south
the mountains are painted in tones of turquoise blue and rose pink, while the
cumulus clouds above have become golden and orange colored, and all the
landscape round about is flooded with color. If you will examine it closely
you will get a suggestion of a town some three thousand feet below in the
green valley that stretches out to the Pacific.
Here is a little water color which l picked up at Key West. Its very
quaintness shows that we are within sixty miles of a foreign country whose
ideas and customs are very different from our own. Yes, every one of the
houses on the narrow street, that stretches almost the whole length of the
island, is painted a different color, just as you see it here in the picture. Some
are pinkg some are blue, some are corn-colored: one is lavenderg but almost
invariably there is a tall palm tree standing beside the little one-story house.
Yes, you are right, that is the Stars and Stripes floating over allg and yonder
tall, steel, skeleton post that rises high in the air is the longest distance wire-
less station that America possesses, reaching, l am told, to Europe.
Now, this is a picture of a little old chapel of Spanish architecture which
stands in the center of the town of San Antonio, Texas, the pride of every
native San Antonian, for here it was that I70 American soldiers, under
Colonel Travers, resisted the attack of 6,000 Mexicans for nine days. It is
only one of a chain of just such little churches which the San Franciscan monks
built all along their pathway from Mexico into the untraveled stretches of
prairie land, which now are among the great granaries of the world. Still
these chapels tell of the heroic lives of their builders.
Now, let us go into the next room and l will show you some of my foreign
treasures. This picture is called "Ships That Pass in the Night." It is a scene
on the Pacific Ocean. You see only a dim outline of the railing and part of
the deck of a steamship in the foreground. Seated in the shadow of the dark
night are two men and a woman. The men are sitting upright, as is the custom
with officers of a ship. The woman is leaning back lazily in a steamer chair.
You can readily guess that the talk has been of sea stories and sea adven-
tures, as one of the men is leaning forward a little as if eagerly relating some
experience. Off in the dim distance, far across the black waters, you can see
a row of dots that look like a line of pin points, from each of which a brilliant
light streams forth. This is evidently an Australian steamer which thus
appears for a few minutes above the horizon as it crosses the path of a vessel
bound for South America. Sometimes when l stand before this picture all
sorts of possibilities suggest themselves to me as to what might have happened
had the two steamers met at the Panama port and exchanged mail matter
which each was carrying for the other. As it is, they are like some lives that
have much in them which would be of interest to other lives, but they pass
silently on their way, never recognizing what each might have meant to the
Oh, dear me! your hour is up. We will have to wait until we have a
spare hour in which you can run out for a little visit with me. Then we can
go again into this wonderful gallery of mine, and l will give you the secret of
how to collect pictures with very little money. The collecting of such pictures
is an experience that many people pass by when they have opportunities twice
or three times as great as mine. l do want each of you to learn to see beauty
of landscape, grandeur of mountain scenery, and the sublimity of the sky
wherever you may go, and to recognize the beauty of soul which shines in
some faces otherwise plain featured.

There is an "Ethics" also of the Teaching Profession, although not so

own uninterrupted spiritual development.
What, then, is to be my "Guide"?

in the belief that life is good.
2. To learn the rules of the game fand the game is nothing less than
influencing other human beings in their early and most significant careerl,

in every detail. To make every hour count either for work or for the joy of

Pan?-when he called from his tiny tree-top house to the grown-ups and

So now we would say to you, "Do you believe in Festivals? If you do,
join us in our efforts to make them beautiful in our College and wherever else
you find yourselves where people are pleading for united expressions of joy
gained through common experiences."
We believe it is possible with your help to make our days of special
rejoicing so full of meaning and beauty that they will stand out always in our
memories, that we may carry their message and inspiration with us into the
years, and that they shall gather depth and richness as we go because of
"those College days."
The success of any Festival depends on the group only as it depends
upon the individual. The responsibility rests on each and every one-the
eager interest of each-the will of each to help-the Willingness of each to
give up some personal pleasure-the point of view which makes each say,
"Our Festival must be as perfect as I can make it." And the power to get
fun out of the "ups and downs" of any preparation must be ours-the humor
which laughs at the "downs" and the spirit which grows glad with pride at
the "ups." The determination to win and meet emergencies must be ours-
the will which, put into action, can transform a bare gymnasium into a fairy
realm or ralse mountams on a plateau and cause barren trees to bloom These
thmgs and lnflnltely more can be done lf we belleve ln Festivals as Peter
Pan rnade mortals believe ln faxrles Believe ln Festlvals as a power for

This puppy-dog had a perfectly tremendous appetite and it took a lot of
food to feed him. It was especially hard for the people in that village because
he refused to eat anything except ice cream and mince pie with fried onions
on it. This kept all the good ladies of the village very busy indeed freezing
ice cream and baking mince pies and frying onions, especially as they had no
houses to live in and quite often it rained and put out the hre in their cook-
One fine day all these ladies came together and said: Ul..et's make a
Thanksgiving dinner for the puppy-dog and fill him so full of ice cream and
mince pie and fried onions that he won't ever be able to bark again."
The next day the puppy-dog found more dinner than a puppy-dog had
ever seen before or ever will see. l-le ate and ate and ate, but he could bark
more loudly than ever. And he grew and grew and grew until he was a giant
puppy-dog with a tail a mile long when it was all curled up. Everyone was
very much afraid of him.
One day a little boy came to see the puppy-dog. Now, he was a very
brave little boy and no puppy-dog could scare him, so he said, though it was
as big as two giants. What was more, no puppy-dog ever would scare him.
The brave little boy tiptoed up behind the puppy-dog until he could take
tight hold of the tip of his tail. But the puppy-dog began to Wag his tail just
then because he was asleep and dreaming of ice cream and mince pie and
fried onions. The little boy was so heavy that the puppy-dog, instead of being
able to curl his tail up tightly, uncurled it, and the faster he wagged it, the
faster it uncurled and the longer it became, until it reached quite to the moon.
When the little boy touched the moon, he liked it because it was so
yellow, and he decided to stay there. I-le jumped quickly upon it and began
to pull the puppy-dog by the tail up into the moon, at the same time winding
the tail around and around the moon.
When the puppy-dog reached the moon, the light of it hurt his eyes so
badly that he jumped behind it and he has never been seen since. I-le may
be still barking for ice cream and mince pie and fried onions, but the moon
is so far away that no one has ever heard him.

An Old Indian Legend Retold
JISTOH was the wife of Onwanonsyshon, a Sarcee chief. Onwanon-
syshon's name alone seemed to breathe bravery, life and courage into
the hearts of the members of that Sarcee tribe.
The Blackfoot braves hated Onwanonsyshon. He and his men
had flung Blackfoot warriors into gravesg he had crushed them beneath his
feet. His arms were as strong as iron, and his heart was as hard as steel
toward everyone except toward Ojistoh, his chosen wife.
Ojistoh was the white star of his life. For her he lived and moved. To
Ojistoh, Onwanonsyshon showed his inner self, his kindness, his faithfulness
and all that was good and fine in him. Ojistoh, in turn, loved and worshipped
Onwanonsyshon. He was land and lake and sky and soul to her. For him
she worked and labored long and lateg for him she prayed and offered sacri-
fices to the gods. Hours were spent by Ojistoh weaving beads and embroid-
ering deerskin jackets that he might be beautifully adorned.
The Blackfeet plotted long with subtle witchcraft how to work Onwanon-
syshon wrong, how to avenge their dead and strike him where his pride was
highest and his fame most fair. Their hearts were as weak as women's at his
name and they dared no warpath, because his warriors' flint arrow-heads
would pierce their bodies, and they, too, would be among the dead. The
Blackfeet dead had to be avenged. So they thought of Ojistoh, his wife.
Blackfoot 'braves were sent to Ojistoh one day when she was alone. The
Sarcee braves were away on a hunt. The Blackfoot warriors offered to give
her wealth, to make her queen of their tribe and give her wampum and ermine.
But she refused all of their bribes, saying, "While l have life, know this-
Ojistoh is the Sarcee's wife." '
Then followed a struggle, but the Blackfeet were too strong for Ojistoh.
They flung her on a pony's back and bound her with a thong round the ankle,
waist and shoulder. Then the one she hated most of all the Blackfoot tribe
mounted in front of her. His eye 'swept over her in her misery, and sneering
he said, "Thus, fair Ojistoh, we avenge our dead."
The Blackfoot braves left them and rode off in other directions to avoid
suspicion. The two rode on and on, she bound with buckskin to his hated
waist, he sneering, laughing, jeering. He lashed the horse, and on they dashed,
plunging through creek and river, bush and trail, until at last the distant
Blackfoot fires could be seen.
Ojistoh then laid her cheek against his back. "Loose thou my hands,"
she said. "Slacken the pace of this horse. Let us forget that you and l are
foes. I like you well, and want to clasp you close. l like your courage. I
like you even better than my Onwanonsyshon now."
He cut the cords and drew the raclng pony ln She wound her arms
around hls tawny waist One of her hands crept up the buckskln of hxs belt
to his knlfe hllt Her other hand caressed hls check Whlsperlng softly l
love you I love you she drew hls kmfe and burlecl lt deep ln hls back
Then back she rode faster than the northern wlnd mad wlth the sud
den freedom and mad Wlth haste to be again with her Onwanonsyshon at
home She lashed the horse to foam as on and on she dashed Plungmg
through creek and rlver bush and trall at last she reached her Sarcee home

A WARM INVITATION
David went to his father one day and asked to have a party. There was
a boy in the neighborhood whom David did not like, so his father said, "I
will let you have the party if you will invite Willie."
To this David answered, "No, I don't want him at my party."
"All right," said the father, "you cannot have the party."
After a few days David again asked if he could have the party.
His father said, "Yes, if you invite Willie."
"All right," said David.
The day of the party came, but Willie did not appear. When the party
was over his father asked him if he had invited Willie.
"Yes," said David, "I invited him, but I dared him to come."

WHY DID I COME TO COLLEGE
Since coming to College I have asked myself fand others, many times
"Why did I come?"
When fine-combing the vacant lot at the corner for weed speci-
mens which I later discovered I could not classify.
When studying Religious Education until two A. NI. to make up
credit in Chorus.
When, after having had it explained that classes Friday afternoon
would mean vacant periods during the week, I found three afternoon
classes five days a week, posted on the Bulletin Board.
When, after gamboling all over the room on my hands and knees
flaming myself so that I had to use up all the arnica in the housel Miss
Farrar said, "We won't criticize your characterization, but you may
dramatize the story again next week, and this time please be a wolf."
When, after working day and night for weeks on a "mud pie,"
finished it, dug out a design and dried the 'iwork of art," IVIiss Schaffner
remarks, "Do you think that looks like the design you showed me?
It's neither symmetrical nor artistic and besides, the design's on crooked."
"When, after using all my ingenuity and knocking holes in my ebony
hair brush and skin off my knuckles, I obtain Hz" on a mechanical toy.
And particularly when I have racked my brain and spent my
already over-crowded study hour, writing a theme on "Why I Came to
College," to be turned in as a contribution for Interpretation of Music.

A RARE ONE
Some time ago Miss Shaffner was looking at some books made in
Elementary Projects. Une girl had signed the name of Christina Rossetti,
the author, at the end of her art work and poem. Miss Schaffner, upon
seeing the name, said slowly: "Er-who is Christina Rossetti? I can't re-
member having had her in any of my classes."

Boy: "May was driving our auto and she ran over the dog next door:

If you don't like that one, try this:
Teacher: "What is a narrative?"
Child: "A tale."
Teacher: Hlllustrate the use of it."
Child: "A clog had a tin can tiecl to his narrative."
Wilkins: "Doctor, do you think it is anything serious?"
Doctor: "Oh, no. Merely a boil on the back of your neck, but l
