Years ago, sacramental fires of professional learning were kindled by those who preceded you. Their path is marked and illuminated by their work. Each glowing deed per- formed in the sacred work of the teacher intensifies and lengthens the line of lights set by those pioneers. Opportunities for teaching service lie all about us. Only the burning gesture is necessary to make these flame into the light that continuously shall lend hope and inspiration to those who follow. Godspeed to the members of the Class of 1927, the beacon of whose work shall make glad the task of instructional service. -£ - and Gold J£ Edith M.

Degree from the University of Nebraska in 1900, graduat- ing with the honor of Phi Beta Kappa. She completed her A M. Degree from Columbia University in 1915. Miss O ' Connell takes an active part in civic activities. She served as President of the Woman ' s Club for two consecutive years, District President of Woman ' s Edu- cational Club and was also president of the P. E. O. Miss O ' Connell has travelled extensively for a summer in Alaska and also abroad. The Seniors have enjoyed her helpful guidance for the four years of their col- lege life.

Mercer received the degree of Bachelor of Arts from Bethany College, Bethany, West Virginia, in 1877, and the degree of Master of Arts from the State University of Nebraska in 1901. His educational experience consists of two years in country schools, four years in high schools, ten years as principal and superintendent, and seven years as college instructor and president, before coming to Kearney State Teachers College. He is now completing his twenty-second year as the head of the Earth Science department of the college. He was the sole sponsor of the Class of 1918, and in the fall of 1926, because of the absence of Prof. Vern Fryklund, Presi- dent Martin selected him to fill the vacant place as the joint sponsor of the Class of 1927.

Hugh Prttijohn, Leona Sheldon Presidents Ruth Cruit Vice-President Clinton Gitchfll, Ruth Benson .Secretaries Freda Reddy, Nellie Lyne _ .Treasurers The Junior class has been very active throughout the year as it has participate d in all of the school activities. The class sponsored two very successful and enjoy- able parties, the first of which was held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Hans Olsen. The juniors will always remember the songs which were sung around the fireplace while the cold, snow-laden wind howled outside. The second one took place in the Y. M. C. A. rooms, where the evening was spent in playing valentine games, after which refreshments were served in keeping with the season. The Junior Flag Day is a day long to be remembered in the college, especially by the Seniors. When the Freshmen ap- peared with the first gray streaks of dawn for their early classes, they beheld the Gray and the Rose floating over the college. They realized their weakness and reluctant- ly walked in under the flag. It floated triumphantly for some time, but it was hauled down by the mighty Seniors. How- ever much may be said of the friendly spir- it and co-operation of the two upper classes, the flag was not treated with proper re- spect, for it was burned by the Seniors. The following account is quoted from the Antelope of November 26, 1926. " A flag of apparently unknown origin waved over the main college building early Friday morning. Fearing Anarchism or Bolshe- vism had broken out within the city dur- ing the night, a few patriotic and loyal citizens of Kearney College (the Seniors), by methods better known to themselves, gained access to the top of the building and hauled down the colors of the usur- pers, (Juniors) . A secret search was then made for the owners of the flag, but with no success. It was then decided to appeal to the students for aid in convocation. Ac- cordingly, the young patriots took the flag from the place wh ere they had concealed it and marched in a procession toward the auditorium with the sole purpose of ob- taining aid in locating these violators of law and government. " They had no sooner entered the door of the auditorium than they were vigor- ously attacked and an earnest and ener- getic tussle ensued. The young patriots re- fused to give up the flag they had worked so hard to obtain and their opponents were equally determined to regain possession of it. The former (Seniors, of course) won, however, and succeeded in dragging the remnants to the stage, only to discover that they had gained possession of the Junior class colors. When the mistake was discovered, order was immediately restored, excitement died down, and the convocation program proceeded without interruption. The Juniors sponsored Senior Recogni- tion Day in the spring. On this day the Seniors were honored by the Juniors in convocation hour. The Seniors then pre- sented them with their colors and song. The Junior-Senior Banquet was held Friday, May 13, at the Wiseman Party House. The house was decorated in the colors of both classes and despite the superstition attached to the date, even the timid ones ventured out and reported a good time. Members of the class have found posi- tions on all the athletic teams. They have enlisted spiritedly in the many organiza- tions of the school, and have participated gladly in the numerous undertakings of the institution. r l 9 Zj 7wx rn r%nr msr Miss Jennie Conrad. Miss Jennie Conrad received her A. B. degree from the Nebraska State Teachers College at Kearney in 1920; and her A. M. degree from Columbia University in 1922. Since then she has been in the Social Sci- ence Department of Kearney State Teach- ers College. During the absence of Prof. C. N. Anderson she has acted as head of the History Department. Miss Conrad has traveled extensively in this country, visit- ing many historical places of interest. Her talks on her travels and experiences make her classes among the most interesting and valuable in the college. Miss Conrad is co-sponsor of the History Club, an organization which takes up the study of present day history problems. She has been president of the Alumni Associa- tion for the last two years, and has also served on the Organ Fund Committee. Miss Conrad, as one of the sponsors of the Junior Class, has buoyed us up with her pep and enthusiasm over three years of the journey. Dr. HansC. Olsen. Dr. Olsen is a former student of Kear- ney College. He came to Kearney before the war, and since then he has been prom- inent in both student and faculty activities. In 1920 he received his A. B. degree from this institution and accepted a position as critic teacher in the Training School. In 1922 he left his work at Kearney College to attend Columbia University, where he received his M. A. in 1923 and his Ph. D. in 1926. During his work at Columbia he assisted on several school sur- veys under the direction of Dr. Strayer and Dr. Englehardt. Among the cities in which he worked were Atlanta, Georgia, and Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. Olsen has written several articles on education, the outstanding one of which is his dissertation, " The Work of Boards of Education and How It Should Be Done.

They composed nearly one-half of the student body for that year and were well represented in all school activities. This year (1926) the Sophomores met again in October with the same sponsors. Early in the fall the class enjoyed a hike and picnic at the lake north of the college. During the second quarter the Sopho- mores had charge of the convocation pro- gram. The program was as follows: Piano Solos Ervin Getty Chalk Talk Jess Homan Piano Duet Mildred Burman, Catherine Boyle Reading Eva Cales Dcvotionals Allen Anderson Chairman John Ormond The Sophomores will remember the par- ty held in the Y. M. C. A. rooms in Feb- ruary. The program wa s enjoyed by many beside Sophomores. Sophomores have taken leading parts in all inter-collegiate activities.

A.; Theresa Grantham, president of Sigma Theta Phi; Helen Strouse, president of Latin Club; Clarence Lindahl, president of Zip Club; John Waldman, president of Phi Tau Gamma. In Student Government the Sophomores were Alta Seybolt and Allen Anderson. Upon the resignation of these members, Gertrude Thomas and Clarence Lindahl filled their vacancies. M. S. Pate Mr. Pate was chosen in the fall as one of the sponsors for the class of 1929. He has been connected with the institu- tion for eleven years. Before coming to Kearney he held positions as Superintendent of schools in Nebraska and in Oregon. He is an alumnus of Kearney State Teachers College, having received his two year diploma in 1907. In 1913 he received his B. A. degree from the University of Oregon and followed it the next year with his M. A. degree from the University of Nebraska. He has been secretary and treasurer of the State Intercollegiate Athletic Associa- tion since he has been connected with the college. For years he has been chairman of the Ad- visory Board and the Athletic Board. He also serves on the committee for extra curri- cular schedules which arranges the dates for meetings of extra curricular activities. Marion W. S. Smith Miss Smith was born and reared in Lin- coln, Nebraska, where she was later grad- uated from the high school. She studied in Nebraska University, working in the art department under Miss Parker. For several years, she taught in the Lincoln public schools while she studied art in the university at night and on Saturday. Since taking up her teaching in Kearney, Miss Smith has been away many times to attend various classes in painting, design, crafts and public school art. She spent one summer in New York and half of the following year at the Philadelphia Art School. She has also studied at the Penn- sylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Minne- apolis Handicraft Guild, New York Art League Landscape School, and has been a pupil of Anshutz, Chase, Hawthorne, Breckenridge, Carlson, and Johonnot.

Second Quarter LeRoy Davidson Treasurer, Third Quarter The class of 1930 assembled for the first time on October 5, with Miss Ethel Hill and Mr. J. H. Hale for willing and help- ful sponsors. The Freshman Class numbered three hundred and forty-two members or nearly half the entire student body. This explains why the Freshmen have played such an important part in the school life of Nebraska State Teachers College at Kearney. The Freshmen who helped to compose the debating team were of much aid to the team ' s success during the year of 1927. Two of the four yell leaders chosen by the stu- dents were Freshmen, namely, Wesley Price and Violet Abbott. Over half the glee clubs belong to the Freshman ranks and many of the soloists. In athletics they have played their part well, for six of the thir- teen " letter " men in football were Fresh- men. The Freshmen were in charge of convo- cation on February 18, 1927. The Fresh- man Class proved its originality by intro- ducing programs at their regular class meetings. These programs seem to have met with the approval of the class. stunt for the " Showdown " was suc- y presented by Jay Lucas, chairman. Oui cessfu Violet Abbott and Martha Comstock. The Freshmen won the Inter-Class Track Meet for the year. Roland Owens and Har- old Gall were the two high point men. The cup was awarded to Roland Owens who had one-fourth of a point more for indi- vidual honors. We are looking forward with pleasure and interest to our remaining years in col- lege. May they prove as worth while as this one has been. Mr. J. H. Hale Mr. J. H. Hale of the Commercial De- partment has been connected with this col- lege for ten years. He has charge of the shorthand and secretarial training classes. He has shown his worth as an instructor not only by the various awards which his students have won for themselves, and thus for Mr. Hale, but also by those students who have received their secretarial training under him, and now hold responsible po- sitions in the business world. The three private secretaries now employed in Kearney College are former students of the com- mercial department. Mr. Hale is a friend of the student. He takes an active part in promoting athletic contests. He is an enthusiastic supporter of the Commercial Club, and can be de- pended upon to give his best to the needs o: the students and the organization. Miss Ethel Hill Miss Ethel Hill, head of the Spanish department, is one of the sponsors of the class of ' 30. She took her A. B. degree at Hastings College after she had spent two years at K. S. T. C, and her M. A. at Columbia University, where she also took a diploma in Spanish. In the summer of 1923 she did graduate work in the Uni- versity of Colorado. She has traveled ex- tensively in the east and to some extent in the west. Miss Hill came to Kearney College in the summer of 1920, and took her regular position in 1923. Previous to this time, she taught in the Kenesaw and Kearney high schools. Tn a social way, she organized and sponsored the Spanish club. For two years she was advisor of the finance committee of the Y. W. C. A. and was faculty chair- man of the advisory board of this organi- zation in 1925. She has also served on the school convocation committee. FRESHMEN. Abrahamsoii. Anderson, Archer, Arps, Allen, Adams, Bald, Baker, Banks. Bartman, Beadle. Becklam. E. Bell, H. Bell. J. Bell, Binder.

( L C sk-JLSU s — - jJ( Y Lojl ( o o VU Ll £X T_0 The opening practice in the 1926 foot- ball season found only five experienced college players on the squad — not a very bright outlook for winning games with such a schedule as had been booked for the Antelopes. The coaches started their Herculean task of team-making several days before the opening of school. All but one of the experienced men were linemen. This one exception was " Johnnie " Wald- man, a substitute halfback during the pre- ceding season. Waldman was the only sprinter of note on the track team and the coaches pinned their offensive hopes on his ability to skirt the ends. Carskadon, who was one of the best ends in the Con- ference the previous year, was placed at fullback after several others failed to hold down the position. The bulk of the offense fell on his shoulders. He was forced to do the punting, passing, most of the smashing, and to act as field general. The experienced linemen were Reilly, an end, Cox, a tackle, and Bowker, a guard. Each man proved his metal during the sea- son. Reilly, true to his ancestry, could al- ways be found in the thick of the battle. The first game of the season was sched- uled with Colorado Teachers at Kearney about two weeks after the opening practice. The game was a memorable one from many angles. Although Colorado won 18 to 0, Coach Fred R. Fulmer. Coach Fred Fulmer came to Kearney in 1922 as director of physical education. While he was coach of the Boulder, Colo- rado high school he established a reputa- tion for himself by developing winning teams in both basketball and football. In his five years at Kearney College he has always insisted upon good sportsmanship and strict adherence to eligibility rules. Through his efforts college athletics in this institution have been placed on a high plane that cannot be questioned. His motto, " A winner never quits and a quitter never wins " has been instilled into every athlete under his supervision. Coach Fulmer has been unfortunate in that every year since he has been in Kearney he has been forced to develop almost an entirely new team. Coach Fulmer understands both football and basketball thoroughly. j t ====== %Rlue and Co T ffe even the critics admitted that Kearney had " some fighting team. " Among the new men wearing the Kear- ney Blue and Gold were Burgess, center; Barta, guard; Woodbury, guard; Williams, quarter; Owens, tackle, all of whom proved to be outstanding players. Following the Colorado game two other non-conference games were played. At Hays, Kansas, The Antelopes met their toughest foe. The Jay Hawkers were big and fast and had everything a successful football team needed. The University of Wyoming game was next in order. The Antelopes battled hard but the big Cow- boys for the second time in two years, had little difficulty in their high altitude round- up. The first conference game was with Wayne College, at Kearney. Wayne has good teams in all lines of sports and Kear- ney was forced to do her super-best to beat her 21 to 6. It was a great victory for Kear- ney with one of the largest crowds of the season attending. The plucky little Centralians were next encountered. They surprised everyone by holding Kearney to a scoreless tie. Several times Kearney had the ball within easy scoring distance, only to be held for downs or a touch back. Kearney proved a big surprise to the crowd at Hastings. The Antelopes scored two touch downs early in the game and had the best of the argument throughout the first half. They were weakened through substitution, made necessary by injuries, and as the defense crumbled, Hastings forged ahead. In a vain attempt to score, Kearney tried several dangerous forward passes which Hastings used to a good ad- vantage and put the game on ice. The Kear- ney touchdowns were made by Captain Carskadon and Waldman. The York game at York was a score- fest by both sides. Kearney was not up to par on the defense. Brilliant forward pass- ing and receiving marked the game. Kear- ney scored first and last touchdowns, but a drop kick in the dying moments of th e game gave York an 18 to 17 victory. Grand Island was defeated in a hard fought game in which every Antelope did his best. Captain Carskadon made all the points in the game running 40 yards for a touch down and also kicking a field goal from the 30 yard line. Ihling Carskadon. Captain. Ihling Carskadon, the wiry versatile little back, was chosen to lead the 1926 Antelopes. He is a player of unusual ability and a triple threat man of the first water. Throughout the year Brick proved himself an efficient captain on many occasions. His versatility made it possible for him to re- lieve an injured end or backfield man and demonstrate to his opponent that he was still fighting a man who would keep him busy. His experience in high school and college football made him a veteran in whom the less experienced Antelopes could look for council and guidance. Brick had the confidence and faith of the entire team and his standards of fair play and good sportsmanship won the respect of his opponents. Captain Carskadon set the pace for his team this year by scoring the high- est number points and by winning an hon- orable mention as all-state halfback. -• ' JkJJkJJl 2 and Gold Peru won, at their stronghold, the final game on the Antelope schedule. Twice Kearney came near scoring. Both Wald- man and Owens ran through the entire Peru team only to be tackled from the rear after slowing down in dodging the last man. As at Hastings and York, the entire Antelope squad got into the game trying desperately to stem the tide. Dur- ing the last half Kearney played her best game, holding Peru to a lone marker. Clyde Cox, Kearney ' s versatile athlete, played his last football game for the Blue and Gold. He played through the entire Peru game with an injured shoulder. The star of the season was Captain " Brick " Carskadon. Playing his third year, he developed into one of the most accurate forward passers in the conference and re- gardless of his size he was a mountain of strength on the defense. He was placed on the Mythical All-State Second Team. He deserves credit as being one of the best all-round football players ever de- veloped at Kearney. He was also one of the best leaders. " Johnnie " Waldman, playing his second season, was a close second for high honors. He was a sure ground gainer on the offense and a terror on the deefnse. His terrific tackling and speedy runs always featured. Henry Reillv who played his third year at an end position starred in all the con- ference games. Grand Island, especially, found it impossible to block him out on wide end runs or off tackle smashes. He was a sure receiver of forward passes. Wes- ley Bowker starred in the York game. He was a heady, dependable player at all times. The season was climaxed with a party given by President Martin at Green Ter- race Hall for the players and their lady friends. It was voted a huge success and a fitting finis of the season. The Athletic Board awarded letters. Ronald Owens, Capt-Elect. Roland Owens is another captain who hails from the famous little town of Stock- ville that has all ready given three for- mer captains to Kearney College. He won his spurs in the Greeley game, the first one that he played for his college. In the earlv part of the game he was sent in as substitute and he won the admiration o his fellow students by featuring in almost every play until he was forced out of the game because of injuries. He was undoubt- edly the outstanding line player of the team. Cool, smiling, he was a tackle that was hard to stop both on the offense and defense, and his driving through tactics disrupted many a well planned attack. Later in the season he was shifted to half- back in order to bolster up a badly injured backfield. Roland is a born leader, and with many of the old men back, the Ante- lopes should make football history next year. Training School Athletics.

Coach Dunlap has assisted Coach Ful- mer two seasons in developing a football team at Kearney College. His past experi- ence both as a player and as a coach has made h m a valuable helper in developing backfield men and teaching Freshmen the art of college football. He played football at Hastings College, St. Viator in Illinois, and the LIniversity of Tulsa in Oklahoma. Coach Dunlap spent much time in develop- ing a good second string team here last fall. The " scrubs " started the season with a team that was composed almost entirely of green and inexperienced men. But by the close of the football year they succeeded in defeating the strong McCook Junior Col- lege eleven by the close score of 3 to 0, largely through the efficient tutelage of Coach Dunlap. CLYDE COX. This was Clyde ' s fourth year of fighting for the Antelopes. He played half and full- back the first half of the season. He was a hard man to stop, hitting the line like a pile driver. He went into his old birth at tackle near the close of the season and made trouble for opposing teams to the end. RALPH LIDGARD (Lid.) Lid comes from Bladen, Nebraska. He was steady and sure. A hard worker and a conscientious player, he should prove a real line threat next year. HENRY RILEY (Heinie) Heinie is a native son, and next to the smallest man on the team. Grit clear through, he played a wonderful game to the end. Time after time he would dump interference and smear men twice his size. A real fellow playing for love of the game. WESLEY BOWKER (Bowk.) Bowker played left tackle. A veteran and a fighter he made swaths through the op- posing lines. We expect great things from Bowk next year. VtWI PIVI. W M PI riWI WIWI " : LAVERN WILLIAMS (Spike.) Spike also hails from Stockville. He was the smallest man on the team and the gamest. He played quarterback and he never knew when to quit. His specialty was returning punts. He never failed his team. We are sorry to lose Spike next year. FRANK BARTA (Bart) Bart played left guard. Big and powerful, he was a power in the Kearney line. His specialty was blocking punts. This is his first year of football. Next year he should prove a constant source of trouble to opposing teams. CHARLEY SNIDER (Chuck.) Charley is a product of Clarks, Nebraska. He is the youngest player on the team. He is a hard worker and game to the core. He made a sensational tackle in the closing moments of the Central game, saving the Antelopes from defeat. He should provide plenty of enter- tainment for opponents next year. SAM WOODBLJRY. Sam played guard, in fact he played all over the team starting from the guard position when the ball was snapped. He learned from experience in an army regimental team the meaning of " fight and hit ' em hard. " Sam should be a leading guard in the conference an- other year. I 9 EJ iZZLLdV ORLA BURGESS. Orla migrated from Gresham. He was also small, a little over two hundred pounds. He had the outstanding record of playing every minute of every game, with no time out for him. He was an accurate passer and a wild roving center. " Quit " is not in his vocabulary. Watch for Burgess next year. JOHN WALDMAN. John came from Comstock, Nebraska. He plays halfback. He was out of the game much of the time on account of injuries, but while able to play he showed the most brilliant broken field running displayed on the local gridiron in recent years. He was fast and shifty with plenty of fight. He was sometimes taken out, but he never quit fighting. He should prove a real threat to teams next year. ORA RUSSELL. Russell ' s home is at Arcadia. He is a halfback of no little ability. Injuries prevented him from playing much of the time, and he seemed to take vengeance on the ones he was allowed to play against. He should show up well next year. ROBERT CLARK (Bob.) Bob is another local product. He played quarter and halfback. Small in stature, but old in experience, he played up to his usual form. He was best as interference man and broken field runner. M£ vi ri w ri-M ' i ri w i ri i n ' •cvi ' i ' vivivrM ' ivi i T ranfiL, CLAYTON ANDERSON (Dad.) Dad is also a Gothenburg product. He played tackle this season and his work was one of the bright lights of the Antelope line. Big and powerful he played a consistent game all season. He should be at his best next year. ELMER COX (Tuggle.) Tug ' s home is at Phillipsburg, Kansas. He played right guard in his first year of college football. A hard fighter and a good sport he won the hearts of comrades and opponents. He should make a real lineman next year. THERON SMITH. Smith comes from Farnum. He did no t make his letter this year, but his work showed promise of a regular position next year. He is a hard worker and a good fellow. HARLAN ELAM. Elam came to Kearney College from Ord last fall. He has been a hard and consistent worker in both football and basketball. Harlan failed to make his letter in both these sports by a very small margin, but with a year ' s experience behind him, he will be one of the strongest men both on the gridiron and the court next year. The basketball season for the Antelopes opened on January 8 at Hays, Kansas, where the Antelopes lost, 21 to 23, but that is only part of the story. How Kearney led for more than three-quarters, until their center was removed from the game on fouls, how even then it seemed that they would win against the Kansas giants and veterans of the year before, will long be remembered by Antelope fans. The conference season opened on Jan- uary 15, with the Antelopes invading Broncoland. Though Cox, throwing baskets from all angles, was the star of the game, the Antelopes were again defeated, this time by the Hastings hoopsters. The next week found the Antelopes at home playing a brand of basketball hard to beat. Cotner was defeated by a score of 32 to 25 when Huber came into his own and went on a scoring spree. York was next to see the Antelopes ' hoofs, for its team was defeated in a thrilling game with the tallies standing 26 to 22 at the end of a necessary extra period of five minutes. It seemed now that the Antelopes had clear running, but the next week they traveled and met with stiff opposition, for they lost to York, Cotner, and Tabor, Iowa. This trip included a Sunday morn- ing relay race up Farnum street in Omaha. The Antelopes showed that they had the stuff from which great track teams are made when they started out after a negro who had appropriated two of their suit- cases. They won the race handily with ten yards to go. Another game was dropped to Grand Island College at Grand Island on February 10. Home came the Antelopes to entertain Wayne in real home style, administering defeat to the tune of 27 to 16 when Car- skadon starred and become high point man of the game. The next week found the Antelopes still entertaining. Chadron won on Wednesday night, with Kearney clearly off form as was shown by Chadron ' s later games with conference teams. Dana came on Thursday night and lost to Kearney 32 to 29. Huber was again high point man, with guarding on both teams very weak. Kearney shone brightly in the last game of the season when they were pitted against Grand Island, a team which had beaten them earlier in the season and which had handled Chadron so easily a few nights before. It was the Antelope ' s game from the first whistle, for the Zebras were be- wildered and dazzled by the brand of team work and basket shooting presented. They came back strong in the second half and even threatened to win the game when Cox and Harden, seniors, playing their last game for the Blue and Gold, were removed for fouls. Barta, substitute center, saved the day by dropping in a basket in the closing moments of play. Such a victory was a fitting close to the 1927 season. Kearney placed three men on the hon- orable mention roll, Robert Huber, forward; Clyde Cox, center; and Glen Harden, cap- tain and guard. lue arid Gold CAPTAIN GLEN HARDEN. Glen has been one of the main stays on the Ante- lope basketball squad for four years. Through pure grit and determination, together with clean living and clear thinking, he fully earned the honors given him in athletics. He was one of the best guards in the state this year as is shown by the fact that he won honorable mention on the mythical all-state team. Clyde Cox has played his last game for Kearney College also. He has proved to be one of the best all- around basketball players this college has produced. This year he occupied the center position, and he never failed to get the tip-off for his team-mates. He also won honorable mention on the all-state team. Ihling Carskadon — Brick has been a familiar figure on the basketball court for three years. He has always been a hard, conscientious worker and the brand of basketball that he displayed this year is a result of these efforts. His basket shooting has aided in turning more than one apparent defeat into victory. Brick should win a birth on the all-state conference team next year. Robert Huber — Bob is without doubt, one of the best forwards that Coach Ful- mer has had under his tutelage since he has been in Kearney. Although small in stature, his unusual speed and accurate goal shooting has made him a marked man in every game this year. Regardless of the fact that he was guarded closely by all opposing teams he was high point man for the Antelope squad. He also won honor- able mention on the all-state conference team. Frederick Myers — Myers played his first games for Kearney College this year. He, with Captain Harden, made up a de- fense that opposing players found difficult to penetrate. Aside from his ability as a guard, Myers has added several points to Kearney ' s score by his accurate long range basket shooting. With three more years of college basketball before him, he will without doubt develop into one of the best players in the state. The fact that only five men won their letters this year does not indicate that Coach Fulmer had no reserve forces to fall hack upon in case of emergency. The remaining five men of the first spring squad are all freshmen and sophomores. These young athletes with their youth, pep, and enthusiasm made stiff competition for the older, more experienced players, and it was only due to the fact that the latter played to the extent of their abilities that kept them from giving way to the younger men. In the games which these men played they shouldered their share of the responsibility with the gameness and confidence of veterans. It is quite obvious that this year ' s experience in college basket- ball is the only thing they needed to round them into first string regulars next year. Aside from the men who won their let- ters, the first string was composed of: The 1927 Basketball Squad. Skov and Williams, forwards; Barta, cen- ter; Elam and Kintzler, guards. Skov is probably the most accurate basket tosser on the squad. He can toss the ball through the hoop from any angle of the court with apparent ease. Along with his ability as a basket shooter he has an abundance of speed and endurance. His lack of exper- ience is the only thing that kept him from winning a letter this year. Watch Skov the next three years. Spike is another forward that bears watching. In the Town-Team Tournament held in Kearney this spring he gained the attention of all by his sen- sational goal shooting. Frank Barta proved his worth by pulling the last game of the season out of the fire by a pretty shot in the last minute of play. Elam and Kintzler were both good dependable guards. They were called upon to relieve Captain Harden and Myers in several games and their de- fensive work was very satisfactory. R? I. Carskadon. Fulmer, E. Skov, L. Williams. H. Elam, G. Hardin, C. Cox.

When Coach Fulmer first looked over his 1927 track squad last March he shook his head sadlv. Only three letter men, Cox, Gilliland, and Waldman reported. These three men with Joe Bennett and Carskadon were all the promising material that could be found in the three upper classes. But when the Freshman candidates started to swarm upon the field, a smile came over Coach Fulmer ' s face that has been getting broader as the season progressed, for here he found some promising athletes that are determined to shatter many of the old tra- ditional records held by former classmen. In Gall, Owens, Burgess and Skov, the coach has found athletes that are going to make Kearney College famous. As in 1°26 the season opened with Hays, Kansas. This time the meet was held at Kearney, and the Antelopes, although de- feated, made a much better showing against the strong Kansas team. Kearney won five first places and a total of 47 1-2 points. True to prediction the Freshmen easily won the Inter-class Meet by amassing a total of 78 points, while the Sophomores were capturing 55 and the Seniors 21. Owens, Freshman, won the silver loving cup for individual honors with 20 3-4 points; Gall, another Freshman, was second with 19 1-4 points. Such records show promise of a strong team next year. On April 29 the Antelopes went to Cot- ner to repeat if possible the performance of 1926. They found in the Bulldog aggrega- tion, however, some pretty tough customers and the Antelopes were forced to be con- tent with a tie score. Kearney, with the meet practically won, had a streak of hard luck. Three times, Antelope men slipped and fell in the closing moments of races when they were well in the lead. The Grand Island-Kearney College meet proved to be most interesting and thrilling. Four records were broken; one by Gall, who lowered the mile time to five minutes flat; another by Joe Bennett whose time on the high hurdles was 17.2; another by Clyde Cox who tossed the shot 39 feet 8 1-2 inches; the other by Waldman with a distance of 168 feet 8 inches to his credit in the javelin throw. Final score, Kearney 77; Grand Island 59. Men who have won letters thus far are as follows: Clyde Cox, Harold Gall, Clark Gilleland, Joe Bennett, Orla Burgess, Ihling Carskadon and John Waldman. ;-l WH viv:«ri Track 1926. The Kearney College track team opened the 1926 season on the home field in a dual meet with Grand Island College. Kearney lost the meet although a Kearney man, Clarence Capps, won individual hon- ors. The Antelopes scored well in the field events, but lost out in the sprints and jumps. Kearney records were broken in two events, the javelin and the discus. The track squad then invaded Kansas Teachers College at Hays, but the Hays men were too much for the Antelopes. Clyde Cox made a new Kearney record in the half mile and Croissant won first in the two mile. Kearney returned from the Kansas defeat to meet Cotner on the local field April 24. The meet was close and hard fought throughout. Kearney won by the score of 69 to 67 after the team had won the mile relay. Clyde Cox made 14 1-2 points by placing in six of the seven events entered. Scuman, of Cotner, was high point man with 16 points. Capps, of Kearney, made a new local record in throwing the javelin. A terrific north wind made it al- most impossible, for a time, to run the meet. The pole vault became so dangerous that several men dropped out, and the dis- tance runners found themselves greatly hampered; but all in all, it was a great day for the Kearney track team. On April 28, the Antelopes invaded Hastings, the Zebra territory, greatly hamp- ered by the absence of Carl Cox and Robert Pollard, two mainstays of the team. Despite this handicap, they succeeded in losing the meet by only a narrow margin after they had won all the distance runs and field events, only to fail in relays, dashes and jumps. Kearnev men who earned their track letters in 1926 were: Carl Cox, senior, Kenesaw; Clyde Cox, junior, Kenesaw; Clarence Capps, sophomore, Oxford; Robert Pollard, sophomore, Farnum; Kenneth Downing, sophomore, Arnold; Frank Croissant, sophomore, Kearney; and John Waldman, freshman. The tennis team was made a part or the track squad in 1926, and a number of intercollegiate matches were arranged, both on the home courts and on the other col- lege courts. It is expected that this sport will become more important with this fur- ther emphasis. Coach Fnlmer, F. Croissant. H. Rcilly, c. Cox. S. Compton, G. Thunnan. H. Morrow, J. Waldman, R.

Basketball, swimming, archery, hiking, soccer, hockey, tennis, and track are offered in season. Next year the girls are to have an athletic field of their own, which will be available at all times. Regular meetings are held the first Wednesday in every month. __ President Vice-President Secretaries Treasurer The outstanding work of the organiza- tion was the production of the Winter- Festival original dance pageant, " The " Minstrels ' Dream, " written in one hun- dred lines of blank verse by Wendell B. Coon of Kearney, and presented by a cast of about one hundred girls. The first per- formance was given March 4, 1927; the second on March 16 before the state D. A. R. convention. The costumes for the folk dancers were copied from native clothes brought to this country. ORGANIZATIONS. Y. W. C. A.

Antelope Board " I In September, the Antelope started its yearly course under the leadership or Lil- lian Lancaster. For one quarter, she re- tained the editorship, but at the end of that time, she resigned in order to take a position on the staff of the Kearney Daily Hub. Florence Olsen, a post graduate stu- dent, then took over the guidance of the Antelope for the rest of the year. Lee Har- bottle, as business manager, has held his position for some time. The classes in news writing and journal- ism furnish a large part of the copy for the paper. This year, the members of the classes were assigned regular beats for news gathering in order that the school in all its activities might be covered thoroughly. In this wav the paper is not only furnished with material from all activities carried on, but the journalism classes are given prac- tical laboratory experience in newspaper work, undertaken on a small scale. Those who may teach journalism or sponsor school papers are enabled to come into actual con- tact with newspaper problems, and to ac- quire some of the knowledge requisite for their work. The Antelope, in the years past, has grown up with the school. Each week, 1,050 copies of the Antelope are printed. A great many of these go to the high schools and libraries of Nebraska and to colleges in practically every state in the union. The exchange list has grown to large proportions. Besides students and faculty, there are many alumni subscribers to the paper. The Antelope proudly car- ried away a distinguished rating award from the 1926-27 National College Press Congress in the recent annual publication contest. The aim of the editors of the Ante- lope has been to publish news of interest to students and alumni and to keep before its readers any progress that Kearney Col- lege may make. L. Lancaster. F. Olsen. L. Harbottle. Lyceum Committee. HOMRR McCoNNELL Florence Way The first college lyceum committee made up of student members was organized in the spring of 1°26. Representatives were chosen from the four classes to elect the lyceum committee members. These representatives, with a faculty advisor, elected four student members and two faculty advisors as the lyceum staff. Those elected were Miss Anna V. Jennings, faculty; Dr. Hans Olsen, faculty; Homer McConnell, school at large; Florence Way, senior; Mildred Thomas, junior; and Allen Anderson, sophomore. The work of the lyceum committee is to choose and book the talent for the col- lege lyceum course. The end in view in organizing a committee of this nature was the hope that students would be better able to select the type of talent that would appeal to the student body. The program chosen for the year 1926-27 began with the Harp Symphony concert which was presented in the auditorium Oc- Chairman Secretary tober 21. The program consisted of con- cert numbers in which the harp, violin, cello, flute, and organ featured. " The Old Homestead, " a comedy drama, including the old farm male quartet, appeared No- vember 30. " Midst Ice and Snow In Lab- rador, " an illustrated lecture given by Dr. Wilfred T. Grenfell on January 28, was of interest to many. Perhaps the most pleasing number came with the appearance of Lew Sarett, the American Wilderness Poet, February 22. His personality won the audience at once, and he received enthusiastic applause. The most unusual number was given by the French Marionettes, created by Jean Gros, March 8. They presented " Huckleberry Finn " in matinee performance, and " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " for evening entertainment. The last number of the season was the violin recital by Carl Steckle- burg, April 11. Hans Olsen Florence Way Allen Anderson LYCEUM COMMITTEE. Homer McConnel! Mildred Thomas Anna Jennings Student Government. Homer McConnell Harold Hayden Lee Harbottle Secretary President Vice-President and Genera! Manager The Student Government Association at Kearney College was organized in May, 1926. It was entirely new to the school but was modeled after similar organizations elsewhere. The purpose is to promote the scholastic and moral tone of the college; to maintain high standards of honor and loyalty; to strengthen cordial relations between the faculty and students; and to exercise dele- gated legislative, executive, and judicial powers over the conduct of the students on and off the campus. The association is made up of all stu- dents regularly registered in the school. The executive powers are vested in three councils. The supreme council is composed of the president of the association, the president of the college, the dean of wo- men, one other member of the faculty chosen by the president of the college and the dean of women, and the presidents of the senior and sophomore classes. The stu- dent council consists of president, vice- president, and secretary of the association and one member of each of the four col- lege classes, together with two faculty mem- bers. The student standards committee con- sists of five council members appointed by the president and approved by the council. The Student Government has endeavored to solve cases and to bring about a changed attitude on the part of students toward school government. The regularly elected council members were: seniors, Clyde Cox and Ruth Gregg; juniors, Clinton Gitchell and Sadie Morrison; sophomores, Allen Anderson and Alta Seybolt; freshmen, By- rus Troxell and Edith Norlin; faculty, H. O. Sutton and Emma Hanthorn. Those appointed and elected to fill vacancies were Elaine Sullivan, Cytherea Hunkins, Homer Morrow, Clarence Lindahl, Gertrude Thomas, Sidney McCaig. and Orla Burgess.

This organization promotes the larger so- cial activities of the school, the mixer, the Hallowe ' en party, Valentine tea, and num- erous other minor affairs. The dues paid by all women students become a part of a loan fund now enabling manv young women to remain in school. In addition, seventy- five dollars has been given to the Harriet Sutton organ Memorial Fund. It has become an established custom that the League make a material contribution to the school each year. The tea service, linen, several pictures, furnishings for the Stexy, and attractive drapes for the office of the Dean of Women are among these gifts. This year two young women were sent to Lincoln to the State convention of the League of Women Voters for College Women. Marcia Hazlett and Izobel Harris represented the organization and brought back excellent reports. The programs each month bring to college women outstanding problems confronting the college girls of today. V. Swansou, G. Batz. Mrs. Elliott, H. Panek, R. Hefner, A. Proctor F. Way, I. Andrews, N.

C. A. is one of the few or- ganizations formed exclusively for men at the Nebraska State Teachers College at Kearney. Since its organization in 1906, it has always attempted to carry its part in supporting the highest ideals of the school and in setting forth the best stand- ards of good character. In setting forth standards of good char- acter and development in the men, the Y. M. C. A. sponsors many social activi- ties. During the first week of school in the fall quarter, a melon feed is held for all men of the college. Later in the year, a Y. M. C. A. banquet is held in honor of the new members. The organization has been instrumental during this year in securing H. C. Gos- sard, F. C. Stevenson, Charles Corbett, President .. Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Program Chairman Devotional Chairman Publicity Chairman Custodians of Keys Dr. Allen K. Foster, and other men of national and international fame, who have spoken to both students and faculty on world conditions and world problems. In this way, contact has been secured with certain leaders of thought in this country. In addition to this extensive program, regular meetings have been held in the Y. M. C. A. room in the gymnasium every Wednesday evening. Many vital topics have arisen for discussion in these regular meetings which are conducted by the stu- dents, a round-table type of discussion be- ing often used. Outside speakers have been called upon to give inspirational talks upon topics of student interest and student wel- fare. After each meeting, the gymnasium is opened for any members who wish to swim, box, wrestle, or play basketball. C. Fletcher. W. Price. H. Pettijohn. W. Danielson. A. Anderson. S. McCaig. W. Stutheit.

Very interesting pro- grams consisting of music, games, read- ings, speeches, dehates and discussions on current topics have been presented. One of the most interesting features of this year has been the study of modern poets and modern poetry. Some of the poets were Lowell, Longfellow, Field, Milne, Riley, Lenzey and Sanferry. The last meeting of each month is given over to the Forensic League. This gives the three literary societies an opportunity to communicate their ideas to each other.

It is the aim of the club to afford a means of making practical the knowledge gained in the classroom, and to acquaint the mem- bers with Spanish customs and modes of living. Regular meetings of the Spanish Club are held monthly. Though lasting but an hour, they are filled with entertainment and interesting instruction. Short talks and plays are given in Spanish at the meetings, games calling for a knowledge of the language are played, and explanations of interest to Spanish students are heard. Re- freshments are usually served after the meetings. To furnish variety, one of the recent meetings was turned into a novel enter- tainment — a trip through Spain. The train was in charge of a conductor and a brake- man. The first stop was made at Granada where Dorothy Van Wey gave an inter- esting talk in Spanish about the city. Pic- tures of Granada were passed through the train for the passengers to see. The train also stopped at Sevilla and Madrid where other pictures were shown and talks given by Helen Cruit and Mildred Beadle. At Sevilla, Zetha Hendrickson and Harvey Churchill presented a Spanish love scene, while at Madrid, the train waited long enough to allow the passengers to hear a short play given by Robert Adams, La- Verne Williams, Harvey Churchill, and Robert Harmon. At the end of the journey, light refreshments were served. Earl Arnold. H. Morrow. L. Williams. R. Harmon, H. Churchill. Goff. H. Hayden, C. Gard, R. Adams. E. Kiskalt, C. Seybolt, H. Cruit, E.

The Zip Club has proved effective in stimulating a spirit of loyalty, school en- thusiasm, and true sportsmanship. Although one of the youngest organizations in Kear- ney College, it has proved an asset in the extra-curricular program. It promises in the future to be of importance in mold- ing college ideals. The club is limited to forty members, the limitation making possible the selec- tion of students of known ability in di- recting and stimulating enthusiasm. The organization has charge of all cheering at athletic contests and other school activities. It has assisted in furnishing convocation programs through its convocation com- mittee. At various times, it has sponsored parties for its own members and for guests. One of the club ' s most important un- dertakings of the year was the annual " Showdown, " an evening ' s entertainment of comic stunts. Various school organi- zations take it upon themselves to provide a certain amount of entertainment. A prize is offered for the best stunt in order to assure keen competition. The proceeds from this entertainment are used to buy " K " club sweaters and other school awards. H. Pettijohn, O. Russell. H. Reilly. II. Hayden. L. Harbottle. H. Morrow. D. Kriz. W. Danielson. C.

It was founded during the first quarter of the school year of 1925, with Mrs. Hull, instructor in piano, as the sponsor. One of the inter- esting features of the club is the fact that there are no officers, the work being carried on in a purely voluntary manner under the direction of the sponsor. In its aims, the organization is highly artistic. The purpose has been to encourage the appreciation and the study of good music of all kinds. Mrs. Hull ' s own ap- preciation, and interest in music has proved the stimulation for much of the enthusi- asm that the members have felt. The club has met on the second Wednes- day of each month, at which time the group has enjoyed rhythmic work and met- ric drawing. In studying the opera stories that are transcribed for the piano, a keen appreciation of the influence of the differ- ent composers has been gained by the club members. Attention has been given to the advances made by the different geniuses 1 Club. Sponsor and their contributions to music as a whole. The club has had the privilege of listening to instrumental and vocal record reproduc- tions by many musical artists of the present dav. At each meeting, several piano se- lections are played by members of the club. After playing for the organization, it is much less difficult to play before a larger and more critical audience. In this way, the members gain not only in power of appreciation, but in power of performance. Mrs. Hull has always been ready to help with suggestion and bits of appreciative interpretation that have opened up the field of music more definitely to all the members. For the April program, Mrs. Hull told the story of " The Quest of the Holy Grail, " and the " Knights of the Round Table " in connection with the opera. This story was taken from a contemporary article.

This organization consists of a group of men, who develop from hesitant, inex- perienced college boys into capable orators and debaters. This is accomplished by pro- grams consisting of: debates on current topics, extemporaneous discussions, read- ings, parliamentary drills and travelogues. The programs during the year have been furnished by committees of three, appointed by the president for periods of two weeks each. The efforts of these respective com- mittiees have proved remarkably faithful and have always resulted in varied, inter- esting and highly educational programs. In this manner each Emanon member has played an important part in bringing to the organization something original and worthwhile; and in the meantime develop- ing his own ability to lead, to plan, and to shoulder responsibility. Thus the truly dem- ocratic nature of this society has made possible valuable educational training wherein the individual learns by doing. The success of the Emanons is best evi- denced by the fact that, with few excep- tions, the members of the male debate teams have been members of this society. This speaks well for greater success in the future and signifies the importance of such an organization in extra curricular activity. Mr. Arnold Trotier, Emanon sponsor for the past year, has been very instrumental in making this society so successful. He has conscientiously and courageously proved faithful in his duties as a sponsor and the society is truly appreciative of his valuable criticisms that have proved so advantageous to the individual members. w W.

Glen Harden, Eunice Arnold Hugh Pettijohn, Clyde Cox Sadie Morrison, Freda Reddy The Academy of Science and Mathe- matics was organized March 4, 1925, for the purpose of promoting an interest in science and mathematics, and of keeping students in touch with the latest scientific research. In general, the aim was to provide ade- quate facility for expression on the part of those interested in the sciences. This organization has always been one or the largest organizations in Kearney Col- lege, and is still growing. At first the mem- bership was limited to those students inter- ested in the physical sciences, biological sciences, and mathematics, and to faculty members from the departments dealing with these respective studies. But early in 1923 those students interested primarily in home economics were admitted to member- ship. This year ' s programs have been found __ Presidents -Vice-Presidents Sec ' y-Treasurers very interesting. Professor W. G. Ingram, of the science department of Kearney High School, demonstrated the slide lantern and projection screen with which he had been working for some time. Most of the other meetings were conducted by students who were particularly interested in some specific field. Hugh Pettijohn read a paper on " Recent Developments in Chemistry " while Morine Nyquist spoke on " Ornamental Plants. " Leo Baisinger read his paper on " Wood Selection " and " Experiments on Feeding Rabbits, " and Flavia Twombley on " Vitamines. " Miss Louise Enochs, of the home eco- nomics department, spoke on the history and development of home economics. At one meeting, Dr. Smith, of the State Tu- berculosis hospital, discussed the prevention and cure of tuberculosis. W. Danielson. C. O. Evans, C. Snider, C. Liudahl. C. Cox, M. Nyquist. C.

The College Symphony Orchestra, un- der the direction of Professor R. C. Rogers, has increased in size during the last two years until its membership is now approx- imately forty. Not only in size, however, but in instrumentation, too, the orchestra has increased, it having been augmented by those rarer instruments seldom found in a town of Kearney ' s size, the bassoon and the French horn, with the oboe and harp to be added soon. Besides these rarer instruments, there have been added others more common, such as violins, cellos, and violas, to say nothing of the various in- struments that the drummer uses. A new Indian drum enables the orchestra to pro- duce Indian music with realistic effects, while instruments are not wanting for de- scriptive numbers such as " In the Clock Store " and " A Hunt in the Black Forest. " The orchestra opened the season during the first quarter by giving a concert which marked a notable advance in ability to play the more difficult numbers such as " Ray- Rogers — Conductor. mond Overture, " " Schubert ' s Unfinished Symphony, " " Andante Cantabile " from Beethoven ' s First Symphony, and " Or- pheus. " In the second quarter, instead of giving a concert, the orchestra plaved for the winter pageant, " The Minstrels ' Dream, " given by the W. A. A. A great deal of exceedingly intricate Russian music was used for this entertainment, the orchestra- tions for which were obtained with great difficulty. During the third quarter, some of the members took " booster " trips up the Lincoln Highway to North Platte, and stopped at the more important towns on the way. A short tour of these larger towns was planned for the entire organization with evening concerts scheduled. After this tour, the last concert of the season was planned. In addition to regular concerts, the or- chestra has furnished music for functions under the auspices of college organizations, and -many of its individual members have played at various places about the town. i -j$ ■ : ; ; • ' :.. !

Winn Inez Hoole Edna Seyfang Eunice Olson Victor Anderson President ...Vice-President ...Secretary Treasurer Publicity Manager Coming from a deep felt want on the part of the rapidly increasing number of commercial students for an association which would provide additional training, the College Commercial Club was organized September, 1925. It was felt that such an organization would enable its members to participate in many actual commercial un- dertakings, and thus come in contact with business conditions. The aim of the Commercial Club is two- fold: first, to train and stimulate its mem- bers to become able and efficient leaders be- fore they set out to teach others; and sec- ond, to initiate into actual business life those who will take their places in the commercial world. Every year, a number of trips are taken by the club members to various standard institutions where business methods and principles are studied. Among such trips taken this year are those to the court house, the post office, the muni- cipal water plant, the State Industrial School, the State Hospital for Tuberculosis, the Central Power Company, the Kearney Milling Company, and the Swift Packing Company. A trip to the Hastings Business College or the Grand Island Business Col- lege is planned annually in order that there may be wider acquaintances with business schools. The club meets for its regular business on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. At such meetings, lectures, demonstrations by students and experts, round table talks, and musical programs are scheduled. Stenographers, public account- ants, and court reporters are interviewed and through them, many new principles and efficient methods are acquired.

Erma Mohler Social Chairmen The Aspasian Literary Society was or- ganized in November, 1°06, for the pur- pose of giving the young women of the school an opportunity to become more effi- cient in public speaking and in conducting various kinds of meetings. In the autumn of 1926 there were ten active Aspasian members in school. Twenty-eight new mem- bers were admitted to membership on Sep- tember 30, and since that time, six more members have been admitted, making a total of forty-four Aspasians. The meetings of the club are held regu- larly every Thursday evening from seven until eight o ' clock, the regular program consisting of short talks, extemporaneous speeches, debates, book reviews, and parli- amentary drill. Each member is expected to serve on the program committee and to contribute toward the success of each meet- ing. In this way, practice is given in con- ducting a meeting and in standing before an audience. Under the leadership of the sponsor, Miss Carrie Ludden, the girls feel that they have carried out a successful schedule in their regular meetings. Eve ry fourth Thursday of the month, the Aspasians unite with the two other liter- ary societies, the Orophilians and the Emanons, in a joint meeting known as the Forensic League. Debates and speeches feature this meeting. The Aspasians took an active part in both the Christmas Festi- val and the Showdown. They also sponsored the Arbor Day program at convocation. One of the yearly events of the Aspa- sians is the initiation which took place this year on October 14. On December 9, the meeting took the form of a reception at the home of Miss Ludden in honor of the past president, Mrs. Pettijohn. The final event, which usually proves to be one of the most enjoyable of the Aspasian year, is the annual picnic. This hike con- cludes the initiation of new members taken into the society since October 14. E. Knutzen, D. Stearns, Hendrickson, S. Morrison. H. Prouty, C. Johnson, I, Freeland. I. Mohle, M Smith.

Home Economics Club. Florence Stewart Edith Kiskalt Juanita Bruce Though work in the home economics de- partment of Kearney college has been car- ried on to a considerable extent for many years, it was not until November 11, 1926 that the Home Economics Club was or- ganized. It is made up of forty women of the school who are talcing or who have taken work in the department. Mrs. Ro- mayne Webster and Miss Louise Enochs, instructors in home economics, sponsor the organization. The objectives of this new club are largclv altruistic. It aims to improve the lives of the students and to give help in training young women to be active leaders in the home, school, and community life. It endeavors to aid the young women who are going out into the field to teach home economics, and to further the accomplish- ments of the work of the department in this school. At the annual Showdown, the organiza- tion presented a little play, " Care of the President Vice-President Secy-Treasurer Clothes. " A social dinner is planned for the end of every year. At the present time, it is planned to petition a national profes- sional sorority of home economics with the view of installing a chapter here. A tentative program for the year 1927- 1928 has been outlined. There will be a talk on " Pictures " by an art supervisor. A city dentist will speak on " Care of the Teeth. " A local milliner or representative from a ladies ' furnishing store will speak and illustrate her discussion with furnish- ings from her store. One of the meetings will be open to any one interested in the home economics department and will con- sist of short talks by the girls on the work they are doing. They will also give an ex- hibition of dresses and hats designed in their classes. A cooking contest will be scheduled for spring. The other programs will be made up of short talks by the girls on the history of home economics and re- news of recent books concerning work in the field. E. Moore, L. Sheldon. H. Poole. F. Twombley.

Daisy Shields, Margaret Mackley Reporters Education consists not only of intellectual culture, of the teaching of arts and sciences and physical development, but above all of sound moral training and character for- mation. It must include the training which develops the whole man, body and soul, will and intellect, character and conscience. With the need of such training in mind, the Catholic Students Association was or- ganized in the early history of the school. Definite religious teachings are the secure foundation of adequate moral training and moral education without a religious basis will not suffice in building the character of the youth. Professor B. H. Patterson, as sponsor of the organization, has aided in carrying on the work of the organization for the past sixteen years in a most helpful and credit- able manner. Since 1924 he has been as- sisted by Professor John F. Matthews. Dur- ing the present school year a course of lec- tures has been given by the Reverend Father Wiese, chaplain at the Good Sa- maritan Hospital. The students have shown much interest in this instruction which is open to all who care to attend. In 1917 the Knights of Columbus of Nebraska, as an organization, contributed the sum of $2,500 for the purpose of equipping a room for the permanent quar- ters of the Catholic Students Association. This donation made possible the purchase of a small yet complete library, a piano, victrola, rugs, and suitable furniture. All of these were properly selected and placed in one of the largest of the college rooms, above the auditorium. The room serves the general purpose of a place for the regular meetings each week and fulfills the special mission of a reading and reception room. It is at the disposal of all students and faculty members and together with the Y. W. C. A. quarters is considered one of the beauty spots of the Nebraska State Teachers College at Kearney.

Debating has always been of consider- able interest and importance among the activities of Kearney College. This year unusual interest has been shown in the work. The activity was carried on under a new system. Instead of holding tryouts for the teams and permitting only the win- ners in the tryouts to get the benefit of the work, a class has been organized and everyone was allowed to register for class work. In that way over thirty people were given the advantage of the intensive work which is so necessary for successful debat- ing. From the members of the class were chosen those individuals who showed the greatest ability in organization and presen- tation of material. Those individuals so chosen made up the debating teams which represented Kearney in the inter-collegiate debates. This year, for the first time, Kearney had debating teams which were composed entirely of women. The women ' s teams debated only against other women ' s teams and the men ' s teams debated only against men ' s teams. This plan is one adopted by the state league for the past season. Kear- ney was one of the colleges which fell in with the plan and carried it successfully through the season. More inter-collegiate debates were held this year than in any other single year in the history of forensics in Kearney. Men ' s debates were held with Midland, Dana, Wesleyan, Peru, Hastings, Central, Grand Island, York, and McCook. Women ' s de- bates were held with Denver University, University of Wyoming, Hastings, and Doane. The question for debate this year was: Resolved, That the McNary-Haugan Farm Relief Bill should be made a federal law. This was the regular inter-collegiate ques- tion, but the women ' s teams debated some other questions with out-state teams. Sev- eral of the debates were conducted on the " no-decision plan, " while the women dis- cussed one question in accordance with the Oxford method. The debaters for the 1927 season were: Alta Seybolt, Inez Binder, Elaine Sullivan, Esther Krusen, Mrs. Esther York, Mrs. Ida Rose Saunders, Homer Morrow, Jess Homan, Homer McConnell, Clarence Lin- dahl, Sidney McCaig, Lee Harbottle, Clin- ton Gitchell, and Warren Alexander.

Erma Shirley Edna Webb _ Izobel Harris Nellie Lyne, Mildred Havei.l The purpose of the History Club as set forth by its constitution is to foster interest in pioneer life and to collect material re- lated to Nebraska History. The faithful and untiring efforts of Prof. C. N. Anderson have done much to make this club a success. The meetings are held the third Satur- day evening of each month. One unique feature of this organization is the meeting in homes with the different members as hostesses. By way of variety, part of this year ' s work has been given over to the study and discussion of modern world problems such as those relating to present President Sec ' y-Treasurer Chairman, Program Committee Program Committee conditions in Russia, China, Mexico, and Nicaragua. The students have found that these topics were of educational value. The club also presented a stunt in the Annual " Showdown " which was a decided success. The " Melting Pot " idea was shown in which all kinds of material went into the pot and came out a finished product as a student in a cap and gown. Any student who is interested in History or is taking the courses in History may become a member upon his making known to the club his desire to work with them. Miss Jennie Conrad and Miss Edna L. Sullivan, as sponsors, have ably guided and aided the club in their work. E. Webb. J. Conrad. E. Sullivan, E. Shirley. R. Thompson. N. Lyne. G. Atwood. L. Nedro. I. Harris, D. Williams. L. Solt. H.

The first student unit of the National Education Association to be established in the United States was organized by the prospective teachers in the Nebraska State Teachers College at Kearney, January 25, 1926. The Xi Phi honorary fraternity as- sisted by Mr. George E. Martin, president of the college, sponsored the organization of the Student N. E. A. Membership in the Student Unit in- cludes membership in the national organi- zation, and subscription to the official mag- azine of the National Education Associa- tion, The N. E. A. Journal, a monthly publication in which outstanding educators present modern problems affecting educa- tion. The N. E. A. Journal for November, 1926, features a picture of the Student Unit N. E. A. with this statement, " To be initiated into the ideals and programs of professional organization — local, state, and national — during students ' years is to get a running start in the great profession of teaching, " which expresses the purpose of this organization. Under the leadership of the president, Mrs. Louise Wigton, for the first two quar- ters, the Unit has studied some of the outstanding educational problems. Dr. Ralph Noyer presented in his usual capable manner some local problems in his " Some Personal Problems of Teachers, " in an early meeting during the year. Local prob- lems which meet every teacher when she enters the field of teaching, how to raise money, and extra-curricular activities, were well presented at a later meeting by mem- bers of the organization. And Mr. George E. Martin gave a thought producing ad- dress on " School Problems. " State educational problems were studied, and Miss Alma Hosic, of the Modern Language Department, who has made an extensive study of Teacher Tenure in other states of the union, presented for discus- sion Teacher Tenure in Nebraska. Miss Mary Crawford, of the English Depart- ment, discussed " School Bills Pending in the State Legislature. " Student Unit N. E.

Matt Wigton, Celina Nollette Celina Nollette _ Lulu Goff Clinton Gitchell, Marion Donnell Presidents Vice-President Secretary Treasurers Le Cercle Francais was organized in 1914 in place of the German Club. Its aim is to give practical drill in direct use of the language and to broaden the horizon of the students through securing a better knowledge of French and French literature. The work of the club supplements the work of the classes in some ways, and it broadens the sympathies of the members through contact with French manners, modes of liv- ing, and types of thinking. Anyone who has had French or anyone who is registered in French classes is eligible for membership. The meetings, which are conducted en- tirely in French, are held once each month. Following the consideration of the business affairs, there is an interesting program of French songs, talks, stories, and plays. One of these programs was the staging of " Le Voyage de Monsieur Perrichon. " Most of the first year French classes have studied this play and are familiar with its comical passages. The people who interpreted the roles are: Clinton Gitchell Monsieur Perrichon Anna Macklin Madame Perrichon Margaret Kinnan ._ Henriette Harold Stark LeFacteui Pearl Phillips L ' employee The meetings are varied occasionally by being held in the homes of the members. Each year the club presents a stunt or play for the Showdown and the Holiday Festival. For the Showdown this year an act from Shakespeare ' s " King Henry V " was played by club members. The character of the King was interpreted by Robert Hamer and that of the Queen by Celina Nollette. For the Holiday Festival the stunt was a chalk talk by Jess Homan, who was disguised as an old French professor, re- lating some of his experiences gained while he was travelling about the world. G.

Mabel Carney, Director Rural Education, Teachers College, Columbia University, is author of the study in which this ranking was given. Service should be the basis of evaluating any organization. The Rural Department aims to meet the needs of two distinct groups; namely, those students who are new in the rural teaching ranks, and those who are planning for a more extended rural service. The former group is given skill in practical and specific adjustments common to a rural school organization. The latter group, in addition to this training, is given the fundamental principles of rural education. Courses in organization, courses in management, courses in " teach- ing, " and courses in social and community welfare are drawn upon to realize these aims. A rural club designed to develop leader- ship through actual practice, is another among the best of special organizations in features of the department. The club ranks membership, interest and working program. Members co-operate with the people of the affiliated rural schools in their com- munity activities. The department is certainly no less im- portan t today than when it was estab- lished in 1916. If anything it is more im- portant in this day of easy contacts between rural and urban people. The farmer now has the opportunity to compare his con- ditions of living with those of other people. The rural people need expert guidance in adjustments which are bound to follow as a result of their wider knowledge of the world and their urban neighbors. R. W. POWELL. MRS R. W. POWELL Jl A special feature of the Rural Depart- ment, and one which greatly contributes to its high ranking among similar depart- ments, is its system of affiliated rural schools. The fine group of teachers featured on this page speaks for the effective man- ner in which these schools are administered. It would be difficult indeed to find an- other rural school area manned with as efficient corps of teachers. No efforts have been spared in making this one of the best administered and supervised rural school zones in the entire country. The schools in question are jointly ad- ministered by the local school boards and the director of rural education at the col- lege. The supervision of instruction is al- together under the control of the depart- ment. By mutual agreement of the boards and the rural department, the schools are used as teacher training laboratories. Students studying with the department do their ob- servation and practice teaching in the affili- ated schools. That they do so is a distinct advantage to the state school system, for by so doing they become acquainted with the problems of rural education at first hand. Thus they are enabled to render high class service out in the state. Three or four hundred prospective teachers are brought in contact with this system of schools each year. In return for the privilege of using the schools as a teacher-training laboratory the college offers certain services. Chief among which is the advice of the director of rural education in matters of school administra- tion. The faculty of the rural department also gives supervisory service without cost to the districts. While Kearney is a pioneer in training rural teachers in this way, the plan has been introduced by many progressive rural departments throughout the nation.

Iq£ 7 yjLu Lui Theatre Arts League. Harold Hayden, —.President Homer Morrow, Jack Wheelock _ Vice-Presidents Henry Reilly, Idarose Saunders Secretaries Ethel Smith —Treasurer The Theater Arts League is an organi- zation which aims to promote interest in dramatics and public speaking. The students are admitted by try-outs and this fall the following were admitted: Lillian Lancaster, Elvira Hoye, Pauline Sni- der, Clinton Gitchell, Inez Binder and Jay Lucas. They were initiated the first quarter. In addition to the regular bi-monthlv meetings, the Theater Arts League has held several social events. The Valentine Party at the Wiseman Partv House was one of the most enjoy- able events of the year. The program rook place between courses and the League pre- sented Miss Eckhardt with a silver bon bon bowl as a token of appreciation of her fel- lowship with them in the League. In January the play, " The Witch, " by Wicrs Jenssen, was presented. It was the first tragedy that the League has ever presented and was pronounced a decided success. The players were Nell Sadler, Jay Lucas, Inez Binder, Elaine Sullivan, Henry Reilly, Idarose Saunders, Harold Hayden, Harold Luce, Ervin Getty, Elvira Hoye and Clinton Gitchel. Martin Johnson was a very adept stage and light manager. During the year various students have acted as judges at declamatory contests and have presented one-act plays in other schools. Miss Meriam Eckhardt is the sponsor of the League. She comes from Northwestern University School of Speech and is well qualified for her wrok. The members feel that the success of the plays was due to her untiring efforts as a director and her friendly spirit among the students. H. Hayden. P. Snider. R. Dailard, E. Smith, E. Getty. I.

Glee Clubs. Professor Louis H. Difrcks. Director. The glee clubs and chorus, under the direction of Professor L. H. Diercks, feel that they have had a very successful season during the past school year. Two separate organizations were formed in the first quarter, the Ladies ' Glee Club and the Men ' s Glee Club. During this time, both organizations appeared at the Presbyterian church and at the Methodist church. The Ladies ' Glee Club also appeared at the Kearney Alumni Banquet. The latter part of the first quarter, both the Ladies ' and Men ' s Glee Clubs were heard in concert at the auditorium. The Ladies presented " Peer Gynt Suite I " by Greig, and " The Three Springs. " Three dancers, Pauline Snider, Beryl Pearson, and Neola Young deserve much credit for the success of the latter which they interpreted in an elabor- ate ballet. The Men ' s Glee Club presented " Americans Come, " by Foster; a selection from " The Tower of Babel, " by Ruben- stein, and a Bach choral, " Now Let Every Tongue Adore Thee. " During the second quarter, the clubs were combined to form a mixed chorus of sixty voices, and at this time, work was begun on Haydn ' s great oratorio, " The Creation. " Realizing that there were many townspeople, interested in music, who would be glad to join in the undertaking, the director sent invitations to all who cared to sing to unite with the chorus in produc- ing the oratorio. There was a whole-hearted response and work went forward rapidly- Practices were held not only during the regular class periods, but in the evenings as well. When it came time to select the soloists, it was found that there was such a wealth of talent in the city that there was no need of bringing in outside singers. Two members of the college chorus, Jack Wheelock and Herald Stark, were among the soloists. " The Creation " was sung on Sunday afternoon, April 24, in the college auditorium, with a vested chorus of seven- ty-five taking part. A small string or- chestra under the direction of Professor Rogers accompanied the singers. Fifteen hundred people heard the oratorio. The Captive Goldenrod. A Dance Pageant of the Early Days of Nebraska, On the Shores of Lake Kearney. Theme Episode I. For many years there has dwelt in the heart of the prairies a wondrous being, Nebraska. Rugged and virile is he. Power- ful, but not realizing his power, he has for ages been content to be dominated by the Forces of the Wild. Now at last, realizing within himself the urge of latent powers, he stirs from his lethargy and expresses a desire for free- dom. Savagery, his ever present guard and oppressor, calls forth his Wild Forces to surround Nebraska, reminding him anew of his captivity. While surrounded by the exultant band, he hears a bugle call and in the distance catches a glimpse of the beautiful maiden, Civilization. Although he has but a faint conception of her beauty and charm, he is stirred and again seeks his freedom. His efforts are in vain. Time has but strength- ened the bands of his captivity. Interlude I The curtain of the years part revealing the Spirits of Sand, resting quietly. When the Spirits of Wind and Storm sweep in, they are scattered. Following in the path of the Spirits of Wind and Storm comes the Spirit of Snow, summoned by the Frost Heralds. The Spirits of Rain come and melt away the Snow. The Rainbow ap- pears, ushering in Spring, who is soon destroyed by the Grasshoppers. The Spirits of Wind come again in the wake of the Spirits of Smoke and Flame. Episode II Years pass and Nebraska is still the cap- tive of Savagery and his band. In the midst of his hopeless apathy he is aroused by the appearance in the West of the Maiden Gold. As she dances and beckons alluringly, a maiden approaches from the distance. Nebraska rejoices to see that it is Civiliza- tion, the maiden who years before, had so charmed him during her brief appearance. Attracted by the dance of the lovely mai- den Gold, she and her followers draw near. Nebraska attempts to free himself and go to her. When Civilization notices his plight she is attracted by his virility and realizes that if he were free he would de- velop untold powers. She approaches his captors who, awed by her beauty and ma- jestic calm, fall back, and Nebraska, so long in bondage is at last set free. Episode I. Dance of Nebraska. Dance of Savages.

Hoar Winter holds his ancient blustery court Mid sifting drifts outside the massive pile Of weathered rocks, the castle ' s pondrous walls. That sportive wanton, Pleasure, horn of Love And Psych, with jocund Warmth is regnant now Within the vaulted hall, where softly soughs The roaring wind, where sports in open grate The restive, draughty blaze. The peaceful bliss, Like limpid crystal splintered at a blow. Is shattered as the door nigh bursts its swings. With sputtered rage wild Boreas rushes in And whips the swirling Flakes of Snow before His icy blast. In trudges, single file, A troupe of wand ' ring bards uncouth with cold. From hearth-side, blaze-lit seat the Castle ' s Lord Salutes the ever-welcome minstrel guests. Their limbs and faces warmed, as sheds the bear His winter fur at dawn of spring, they cast Their cloaks. By many nations sired, they dance And blow upon their pipes and horns, and pluck Their strings with zest of roving satyrs wild. True sons of Pan. With player verve, sincere Though crude, they show in pantomime grotesque That lovers ' quarrels drove them hence and knit Them with a common thread — a roaming troupe. Impassioned men think all the world is lees And so much dregs when wine of love turns sour. End reached, the Lord seeks rest and bids them drink Lethean potions out of Sleep ' s great bowl, Wherefrom deep drafts relieve the pain-wracked soul. The minstrels spread upon the cold gray flags — Hard beds — their cloaks, and yearn for winging dreams From golden hoard of homeland mem ' ries quaint. II. Care-lifting Morpheus guides the wand ' rers far. Like cautious rabbits seeking brooks at dusk, A band of Fairies inward steal as still As gloomy-mantled, flowing-skirted Night Pursuing white-robed Day. As timid fawns — Restrained by fear, impelled by wonder — round Some object strange, the Fairies scrutinize The sleepers warily. The Bringer of Dreams Leads forth a homeland vision for each bard. Fulfills his wish; while, awed, the Fairies gaze With fascination at the weaving dreams, Prolific Sleep ' s ephem ' ral progeny. Like star emerging from the circling clouds Bright Sonya is revealed. Since Helen ' s reign No man has looked upon so delicate A form. Chaste Cynthia hides her face to blush. While Phoebus shades his eyes and yields his realm Of wonted glory. Elfin band, enthralled, Bids Bringer of Dreams recall this charming dream — 9 2j Too fair is lovely Sonya to remain A vision living but a day — and bids Its fairy Mercury immortalize The graceful maid; this done, the two return To Fairy band. Soon feeling she has gone, Young Nikolai, her lover, stumbling, seeks Her aimlessly, like lamb that from the flock Has strayed and, bleating, begs the shepherd ' s care. As darkling shadows fade before the sun, So disappears the dream and leaves the youth A hopeless huddle. Melancholy, pale As lurid burnt-out ashes, hovers near. Fair Sonya, seeing Nikolai ' s despair, Falls on her knees, like Eros fronting Jove For Psych ' , and begs the Queen that Nikolai Be granted deathless life. The Queen confers The boon and he is quickly brought to her. No elves could taste that jov of meeting who Had never once been men, for human loves Are stronger than enchanted passions. Day Approaches silently, The Fairies steal Away like lingering night before the sun. Apart the lovers sit unconscious still. III. Like molten streams of fresh refined gold The crowding Sunbeams with a joyful touch, As Cynthia oft caressed Endymion Asleep beside his flock on Latmian hill, Awake from dreams the slumb ' ring minstrels, The lovers down to plains from dizzy heights Of blissful peaks. Like friends before a storm Of ruin, quick as davlight touches them The lovers ' fairy attributes are gone — Like paling stars before the glow of dawn. A sable-shrouded figure, Death, stalks in With certain, ominous step, for none refuse Him company. He beckons Nikolai With long, gaunt, withered hand. With solemn tread, As Michael led repentant Adam out Of Paradise, grim Death begins to lead The falt ' ring youth, for he is but a dream And cannot live in wakeful world. True love Balks not at death and grave — fair Sonya runs To grasp her lover ' s hand; like Thisbe chaste, She cannot live without her Pyramus. Like funeral march, with silent dignity — No sign of fear betrays a heart — the three Of them move through th ' engulfing door as though To pass the Cerebus-guarded gates on bank Of fateful, noisome Styx. The minstrels gaze As hypnotized. His own love symbolized Each finds in storied love-dream he has seen. Then, one by one, their cloaks and instruments They take. Resolving to return to loves Awaiting them in distant native lands, In single file, like men embarking on A far crusade, they slowly outward pass. 9 2 7 The Minstrels ' Dream. Cast.

The annual summer school for athletic coaches under the direction of Coach Fred Fulmer, of Kearney College, attracts men from all parts of the United States who are interested in that department of school work. Last year the school was composed of about one hundred students from eleven states, including Florida and Texas. Fifteen of the students were college or uni- versity coaches and practically all the others were experienced high school coaches. The instructors were: Glen S. Warner, of Stan- ford University, Dr. Forrest C. Allen, of Kansas University, and Henry F. Schulte, of the University of Nebraska. The plan of the course for the 1927 school is to concentrate on one subject at a time. On the opening day Major Griffith will give a series of lectures on " The Pres- ent Day Athletic Situation, " discussing the problems of administration and man- agement. As athletic commissioner, editor and publisher of the Athletic Journal, Major Griffith is in constant touch with the biggest men in athletics today. Every problem which arises, concerning athletics, is brought to his immediate attention; hence his exceptional ability as a lecturer among men whose chief interest is the direction of athletics in schools and colleges. Instruction in football is to be under the direction of Robert C. Zuppke, of the Uni- versity of Illinois. Mr. Zuppke is not only a leading football mentor of the day but is also one of the game ' s greatest teachers. Many of his former players and assistants are now successfully coaching large uni- versities, colleges and high schools. All pay continued tribute to the master coach from whom they learned their football. Mr. Zuppke ' s work will be very practical and complete. Henry F. Schulte, the veteran track and field coach from the University of Ne- braska, will have charge of instruction in the technique of track and field athletics. Mr. Schulte is the only instructor who has appeared more than twice in Kearney ' s coaching school. It will be his fourth sum- mer here, and each year he becomes more ROBERT C. ZUPPKE. popular. If possible Mr. Schulte will be accompanied by several of his star athletes. Basketball instruction will be under the direction of the famous Jayhawker coach, Dr. Forrest C. Allen, of the University of Kansas. Dr. Allen, whose basketball team last season won its sixth consecutive Mis- souri Valley Championship, will conclude the course with instruction on the cage game. Dr. Allen ' s remarkable personality and ability to teach, makes him a favorite wherever he is known. His knowledge of athletic psychology and the treatment of injuries plays an important part in his coaching and teaching. Probably the most remarkable fact of all is the outstanding ability which each instructor has in his field of activity. Not only are they remarkable coaches but re- markable, enthusiastic teachers and authors of note. Surely no one can attend this course given by master instructors and not receive valuable information which he can put to immediate use. JJke ' friendlie.

I saw a twisted tree Upon a rough and rigid rim of hill, Pure onyx, black against a molten tapestry of woven clouds, Where threads of gold drawn taught Inwove and interwove themselves with purple strands, Until the fabric shimmered with a glistening light where long, slant shafts of silver beat upon the drap d ' or. And I stood fascinated, breathless with my gaze. Simple Beauty hurt me with a too much pain. And then obliterating night hushed all, And stroked the throbbing splendor, And salved my aching, burnt-up soul With long, dark, soothing fingers. And all the painful Beauty fled. I saw a chastened flower — A lily white as the eternal snow that crowns the brow and lines the furrow in the hills, And white as the marble of a woman ' s breast — All stamened with a yellow gold, Exquisite, drooping lightly on an arching stem that curved with long, swift lines As though the weight of Beauty were too much. And life was too strong and Beauty too great — The lily died. I saw a girl — she scarcely noted me; no matter — And I loved with a flame more pure than the brilliant, cauterizing blaze of the sunset fire; I loved with a purity more white than the lily ' s fairest snow; I loved till life proved too strong, Till the Beauty of my love seared my soul. Too much! I strangled love and lived in peace. — Wendell B. Coon. Tollcfscn-EUiott Lumber Company @— © LUMBER AND COAL 66-Phone-66 BUILDING MATERIALS OF ALL KINDS , ' JW k ' For Me. What pleasures are stored in that leather-bound book! How I love to fondle the cover, To glance it through and recall the thoughts that fall from the pages like darts to lodge forever in people ' s hearts, To read each line sometimes over and over, And place the words in a picture I see That the poet has painted For me. Marian Donnell. Night in Sprin; Night — and all is hushed To listen to the voice of new-born leaves, To feel the prick of blossom laden breeze. The moon and stars draw near To mark the shadows clearer as they fall, And meet the glory of the whip-poor-will ' s owi Thoughts are rampant, free Heeding nothing and fearing none, Soaring endlessly on and on. What of limits? What of strife? What of man in all this grace? What is death, what is life, In the midst of all this space? This is Beauty, Glory, God. Marian Donnell. Sonnet On Graduation. When graduation time comes stealing nearer, And college life for us will soon be o ' er, When all our aspirations soon must soar Out into wider fields, — then ' twill be clearer Just why it was that every year seemed dearer. And how much happiness each held in store; And why it is that now we ' re wishing more And more that we might cling to her and hear Her spacious halls resound with friendly greeting. That we might still share of her joy and pleasure. But well we know that now the years are fleeting. And we must bid farewell — but without measure, We ' ll praise her when we join in happy meeting, And cherish ever our loved Alma Mater. Florence E. Way.

Far over my quiet chest My drooping head was bent at rest, No motion hint of life betrayed, Except as toying fingers played In nervous energy. But through my frame A silent sigh, repressed with anguish, came. For I was mourning o ' er my dead, A corpse — a coffin for its bed. The tapers ' yellow, fitful glow, Awoke the terror of my woe Within my aching heart. . . . No candle ' s ray, No coffin ' d corpse — all sorrow ' s trcach ' rous play. I buried my dreams, my soul that night: They could not live in the stifling light Of life ' s cruel heat and strife. Dreams dust. Want these, why live? — plead death. . . Now must I chant a plaintfu! requiem for dreams and a soul, Interred; I leave them to the worm and mole. — Wendell B. Coon. I SHALL COME TO YOU. I shall come to you, When the soft loam is piled upon my head, When breath has reached an end, When sighing all is done, When the music has been played, When the black dull box has found its place, When soothing dirt has formed a mound. When I am left alone — Then shall 1 come to you. When squalid creatures of the earth No more can watch us close, When custom ' s mailed and unjust hand No more shall crush us down, When souls are one in endless space, When age nor rank nor good nor bad Shall keep us far apart — Then shall I come to you. When we may love with brimming souls, When earthly things give place to souls, When spirits touch in sweetest kiss, When care is gone, eternity is bliss — My loved one, you who are dead, When soft earth lies above my head, Then, I shall come to you. — Wendell B. Coon. NO? Spring is doing queer things to mc. Feel the bounce in the sod — Doesn ' t it make you want to dance? Feel the life in the air — Doesn ' t it make you glad to live? Doesn ' t it make you want to sing, Or write a poem or anything? It does me. — Marian Donnell.
