Have waited ' neath their portals For an M. A. or A. B. We have heard of " Lab " equipment And a " Gym " which might excel, But we do not care a copper Since we love our own so well. We have heard of larger buildings. And of greater campus space, But where the hearts were bigger Well — we ' ve never found that place. Not a place where right seemed stronger Where the spirit seemed so clear. Where the golden rule seemed brighter, Or the fellowship so dear. Not a place where wits were sharper Where greater talent seemed to reign- From the Hall of Elocution To the rapid foot-ball game. No, we ' ve never found a single spot Upon the world ' s old face That fills our hearts as Wesleyan Of dear old Uni. Place. — Miss Abbott. ' Twas midst of night; no moon, no stais, im sim.

The gates of Life swung open and he entered in. We did not hear the rustle of the snowy wings which bore him hence; we only knew that sorrow laid his heavy hand upon our heai ' ts with crush- ing weight. We loved him. How well we knew the slow, sweet smile; the life-giving flash in those clear eye.s which looked out upon the world with wide-seeing vision; the fear- less spirit whose strength was as of ten because his heart was puT ' e; the gentleness, the kindness and yet withal a justice so unswerv- ing that men were held to the truth through him. Thrice blessed Wesleyan — to have known, to have loved and to have been loved by him. He stood for life, for strength, for purity, for struggle — not for death. And to each, he lives — the same benign, sweet, majestic presence as of old, a life which sheds abroad its sweetness as the fragrance of the flowers from Paradise. — Effie Haskins Abbott. When we consider how his life was spent In quiet usefulness, in this dark world of ours, In showing us the rainbow thru the showers; When we consider how his pres- ence lent An air of cheerfulness and sweec content, A wistful fragrance as of spring- iir,ic fiov eis. Which breathed of hidden strength fiom unseen Pow- ers And SDok " a li o on holy service bent, Then are our hearts with heav- er! 7 caln ' .ness filled And all our souls with new-born hops aie thrilled. Our restless spirits, uncontrolled, are stilled. Our lives are moulded on a grander plan. Altho he lived with us but for a span, The world now bows in reverence to our " Giand Old Man.

Yes, I have been watching with interest the progress of the endowment campaign, and am glad for a chance to talk with you. has been Very successful. The prospects for securing the $400,000 within a few months are encouraging. Then the campaign is to be continued? Yes indeed we shall k ep right at it until the ammount is raised. In fact it has never stopped, pledges are Chancellor Fiiimer coming in daily. You have had a great organization. Yes we have. Our workers have been most faithful and effective. We can never thank, them enough fo r their services. jJnd We wish to thank the loyal Nebraskans for the Way they have responded. We kr ow that they have the interests of the school at heart. I see that University Place is very liberal. It speaks well for the school to have those who know it at first hand so enthusiastic for it. That is one of the finest things obout it. We only hope that others will know it as well. What did you say were the forms of gifts? THREE WAYS; i I) Cash or time subscriptions. From two to five years time given depending upon amount subscribed. (2) In form of annuities. {3) Bequests. You say that this is not for building purposes? 3 o; It is for endowment — a permanent fund invested by the Trustees. The income ONLY is to be used for the support of the school. That ' s business. I think that I know some who have not subscribed. I will see them and call you later. All right. Thank you — Goodbye. Mr. Everybody AJumtttfetrattnu WILLIAM GEORGE BISHOP Registrar and Treasurer B.

I 0, Wesleyan colors! Yellow and Brown, No human hand thy hues combined; In the sunflower ' s heart and circling crown The gifts of heaven and earth we find. Refrain The sunflower swings in the singing wind Waving its symbols of strength and light: Strength and light, Strong and bright. The brown for the strength of the sturdy old earth. The yellow for heaven ' s own light. II The sunflower bows to the purpling east. In dewy worship at early dawn; It hides its roots in the earth ' s kind breast And opens its heart to the rising sun. Ill In the burning rays of the noontide hour Undrooping it faces the glorious light; And when it is seized by the storm-wind ' s power, Anchored fast to the earth, it grows in might.

Van Riper, Nebraska Wesleyan has this year suffered the loss of a member of the Faculty who was one of her most scholarly and at the same time most popular teachers. During- his brief stay he won the thorough confidence and enthusiastic friendship of every member of the Faculty and student body. His departure has been greatly mourned. And yet Nebraska Wesleyan feels a pride that it can offer, for the great positions of the country, such men as Professors Cox and Van Riper. We look forward with anticipation and regret to the rime which ke know cannot be far far in the future when Professor Brightman will also leave us to fill one of these great positions. Professor Van Riper is now studying in Jena University, Jena, Germany, preparatory to tak- ing up his work as head of the Department of Philosophy in Boston University. Here he will take the positio nmade vacant by Doctor Bowne, one of the greatest of Modern Philosophers. BENJAMIN W. VAN RIPER Head of Department of Philosophy and Psy- ' hology A. B.

When the wintry winds are blowing o ' er the yet untrodden snow And the sleepy stars are blinking yet on high, Who could call these youths and maidens from their cozy beds to go, Just to learn of worlds and planets in the sky? Prof. Rose. When the laddie leaves the homefolk on his quest for higher knowledge: " Who shall teach me? " hear him question with a sigh. But the answer comes from many who ' ve already come to college: " He who knows the mysteries of x and y — Prof. Rose. When a student on the campus walks with thots a mile away, Murmuring words you cannot understand, " Hyperbola, Ellipse, Parabola, " you hear him say. He ' s a student of the best man in the land — Prof. Rose. Who is it when the balmy days of early spring draw near. And the meadowlarks each sing a happy lay. Who says, " Of pyramids and cubes we ' ve had enough this year, On Friday we ' ll just have an all sneak day? " Prof. Rose. Who is it whom the Senior ' s love for wisdom he has taught them? Who is it helps the Freshie green with many a trying problem? Who is it whom we all love for his kind and gentle spirit?

For the past twenty-one years Nebraska Wesleyan University has had a Teacher Training Department. In 1890 this department was known as the Normal Department. There was a steady and healthy growth of the Department till the year 1908, when it was deemed advisable to change the name of the department and extend its scope of work. Accordingly the depaitment was organized into its present form, and designated as the Teachers ' College of the Nebraska Wesleyan University. The change in name and form of the department is now seen to be an expedient move for a large and better Teacher Training Department. The growth and progress of the Teachers ' College has been a matter of delight to all concerned. The year of 1911 was the banner year in the history of the college. The Teachers ' College last year graduated the largest class in its history, issuing more than ninty certificates in all, forty of which were University certificates to those members of the Senior class who had finished the required work in the Teachers ' College. The Teachers ' College embraces three distinct departments. The Training School, the Kindergarten, and the Teachers ' College propel-. The Kindergarten is one of the largest and best equipped ones to be found in the state. The Training School has taken up an advanced type of teacher training work. Until the last year the Training School comprised only the eighth grades of the Elementary School, but this year the College added to its Training School a secondary or high school Training Department under the direct supervision of the head of the Teachers ' College. By the addition of the High School Department the College has completed its equipment for teacher training in every department of public education. The past, present and the future are satisfactory in a very large sense. BERTRAM EVERETT McPROUD Head of the Teachers ' College; Professor of Education A. B. Baker University 1903; A. M.

Professor Magendanz, the Director and Head of the Piano Department, has been in America six years, having been born and reared in Germany. Mr. Magendanz has studied under the greatest teachers of Berlin, chief among whom is the celebrated master, Karl Klindworth, former director of the famous Klind- wrorth-Scharwenka Conservatory of Music. He is not only a pianist of rare accomplishments and a patient, excellent teacher, but a composer of no mean ability. The Conservatory of Music, under his directorship, is in a position to give as finished a musical education as can be secured in the Central West. Mr. Clemens Movius, Head of the Voice Department for the last nine years, was trained by masters of the voice in Potsdam, Berlin and Paris, having studied for some considerable time with Sbriglia in the latter city. Mr. Anton Stechele, Head of the Violin Department, came to the Conservatory direct from Berlin three years ago, after many years of continuous study of the violin and theoretical subjects under Professor Gustav Hollaender, director of the Stern Conservatory of Berlin. Mr. Stechele was the director of a very excellent orchestra in Berlin for some years. Mr. H. Aden Enyeart, Voice teacher, possesses a rare tenor voice. He graduated some years since from this Conservatory of Music. He is a growing man, a serious student and a most beautiful and popular singer, though he never bids for popular effects. For years he has been tenor soloist in the First Pres- byterian Church, Lincoln, Miss Mary Alene Smith, Piano teacher and Head of the Organ Department, graduated from the university years ago and later studied at the New -England Conservatory of Music, Boston. She is in a position to train church organists for the church of Ne braska, being gifted with a rare ability. Miss Hannah Matteson, Piano teacher and teacher in Harmony, is a post-graduate of the Chicago Musical School. With a such faculty this School of Music is able to offer all who desire musical culture the best opportunities to de- velop themselves in this direction.

Fortunate, indeed, has the De- partment been in having at its head, teachers who were capable and earnest; under their direction the school was bound to reach the prominence it now holds. Miss Amelia Parker, Mrs. Emma Ord Gregg and Miss Hattie I. Blood, each served as head of the Department during the first ten years. For the next decade Professoi A. E. Turner was principal. Under his able management and untiring efforts was built up one of the most prominent Schools of Expression in the Middle West. In all parts of Nebraska and in many other states may be found many successful readers, teachers, ministers and lawyers, who have graduated from this department. In September, 1910, Professor Eugene Knox became the head of the school. He is a graduate of the School of Oratory of Drake University. Previous to the time of his election to his present position he occupied, for six years, the chair of Public Speaking in the University of Puget Sound. He is a Reader and Imperson- ator of great popularity, having spent seven years on the platform, previous to taking up the profession of teaching, traveling from Indiana to California and from Mexico to Alaska. His wide experience before the public has especially qualified him as a teacher, and his platform work in Nebraska has done much toward in- creasing the attendance this year. The registration has almost doubled, necessitating two assistants for next year. Miss Beulah Champ, who has done such excellent work this year, will be retained. Miss Lois A. Beil, who has completed a year of post-graduate work in Emerson School of Oratory in addition to a three years ' course in that institution, has been secured as teacher of Shakespeare and Physical Culture. She is an excellent reader and will add much strength to the faculty. Thus plans have been laid to mak e next year the greatest in the history of the Department.

University of Nebraslva 1910 Sigma Xi Fraternity; Acacia Fraternity Member of American Academy for the Advancement of Science; Nebraska Academy of Science Ne- braska Wesleyan since 1 )10 Presidents of the Academy Man justifies his existence only in so far as he is able and willing- to assume his proper relation to the divinely ordered scheme of universal life. This thought gains the ready " yea " of average intelligence and is proven by the tale of the nations. As this is true of man, so is it true of man ' s thought. As every institution is but the crystalization or definite ex- pression of man ' s thought, then by all the laws of logic, if an institution would truly justify its existence it must rendei ' such service as will make for the betterment of mankind. Bearing this truth in mind we, as members of the Nebraska Wesleyan Academy, feel free to make the assertion that our de- partment has justified its existence. If we base our conclusion on past achievements, present condition and future possibilities. In order to establish the sanity of this claim we need but to glance hurriedly at the events as recorded for this past year, 1911-12. The Academy accepted the challenge open to all classes and departments of the University and were able to prove themselves peculiarly apt at the time-honored art of pushing the pig skin. In fact, so apt were they that none of their opponents were able to hand them defeat. That history repeats iteslf is proven by the result of the basket-ball tournament, which also was open to all classes and departments of the University. Perhaps our most worthy opponents were the Sophs, but even they were destined to know the sight of our twinkling color and figity heels. The final result was just one more championship pennant for the Academy. If you were to look over the lists you would find the Acad- emy represented in all the ' Varsity teams — foot-ball, base-ball, basket-ball and track. Realizing that a fully rounded man is more than a book worm or even a foot-ball hero, we have striven to develop the intellectual side of man. The success of this endeavor is evi- dent in the fact that we now have a strong squad of debaters and a literary society with a membership of about eighty en- thusiastic workers under the capable generalship of A. Ganzell, who was elected president for the second semester. Our portion of success is due to the fact that all officials and particularly our principal, have been capable and faithful. Their good service is greatly appreciated by the members of the Academy. As regards our relation to the great scheme of all life, let us say, that we find our glory and true dignity, not in the little achievements of today but in a realization of the fact that we, the vulgarly called " Preps, " of today are the Seniors of tomorrow. Our great ambition is that when it comes our time to don the caps and gown we may be as well fitted and worthy as are the members of the Senior Class of 1912.

CROSSLAND Winner of Local and State Oratorical Contests Great was the joy in the lair of the Coyotes, when it was announced that for the sixth time in the history of Wesleyan, her representative had won the much coveted first place in the annual State Oratorical contest. The contest was held this year at Grand Island. Not only has Wesleyan g-rown greater in brawn as is evidenced by her athletic prowess, but she has grown also in the lines of Oratory and Debate. Great interest has been aroused and from present indications, many will enter the local contest next year. On December 19 five contestants, aspiring to Oratorical honors, entered the local con- test. The winning orations were " Tolstoi " by W. F. Crossland and " Louis Pasteur " by Ellis Fulmer. To Mr. Crossland were awarded the first honors and Mr. Fulmer won second place. The results showed that many laborious hours had been spent in preparation for this annual event. The honor of winning is a goal worth working toward. By entering this contest one develops his ability for public speaking, and even though he may not attain the first place it is not time wasted and is worth all of the eff ort. In preparing his oration, Mr. Crossland ' s motto was " Work, work, work. " Not only does it take work but it also requires technical preparation and oratorical ability coupled with a great amount of polishing to prepare a winning oration. Those who have participated have surely been well repaid for all of their efforts. Wesleyan should congratulate herself upon the fact that she has such men, men who are willing- to sacrifice and to toil in order that they may bring honor to their Alma Mater. iEntrrf at % Sutrr-atatp (iratorital (HonUst, Niirtljftrl . JHtmtranta. Ma 17. 1912 Among the bleak Siberian hills nestles a humble cottage. Near by, mutely gazing toward the West, a tired Russian mojuk wearily leans on his heavy hoe. His rough cap and coarse cloak tell the sad story of abject poverty, while the barren steppes, desolate and cheerless, proffer him their silent sympathy. The solitude seems to have filled him with an utter loneliness, as he stands like a sad helmsman of the Vikings. But as he turns, there i.s revealed a different being — one that speaks of days when culture and refinement fashioned his features and moulded his face. His massive brow and firm lips evidence a mighty intellect and an indomitable will, while his eyes, searching yet tender, are full of widest sym- pathy. Who is this solitary recluse ? Has he been exiled as an object of imperial displeasure ? What achievement has lifted him from the oblivion that buries Russia ' s millions? A generation ago, the royal Russian court was astonished when a nobleman of highest rank renounced the capital with all its luxury that he might live and labor among the peasants. Through his enviable abilities, his success in the Crimean war and on diplomatic missions, he had won the confidence and high favor of the Czar. Social position, literary distinction, political preeminence, all bespoke a most brilliant career. But the emptiness of his selfish life dissatisfied him, and he asked, " What am I here for? What is the meaning of my existence? " As he vainly gioped for light in this midnight of discontent and despair, the dawn of a new hope was break- ing, and he found peace with the weary and heavy lade n, in service for others. This Saul of Tarsus, the unsympathetic aristocrat, became a Paul the Apostle, the humble debtor to the down-trodden. His vision was cleared, and as he beheld wretched Russia, laboring under a weight of woe that she could scarce sustain, his sensitive being was moved to anger and pity. How grossly had she been robbed of her every possibility! He saw her laboring for three centuries longer than the rest of Europe under the terrible scourge of the barbarian. He saw her growth dwarfed and her life blighted by oriental civilization and religion, and when at last the light of Christianity did come, it was obscured by the Byzantine clouds of ritualism and superstition, and almost extinguished by the pernicious union with the state. He saw the masses awakening to the spirit of revolution that convulsed Europe at the beginning of the nineteenth century, resisting the un- bearable oppression, and sinking back again into a lethargy of submission beneath the ever increasing tyranny of the government. And how heavily rested the yoke of serfdom on the weary necks of his dejected countrymen! How dense was the ignorance, how miserable the poverty, how awful the wretchedness that engulfed the Slav! His life was an endless struggle to meet the tax-collector; his very soul was being coined into rubles. And oh, he pity of it! Even the sacred church had grown wealthy and corrupt, and looked with in- difference on the afflictions of her subjects, while the Most Holy Synod was but the tool of avarice. Enshrouded in image- worship and futile doctrines, she was giving the stone of ignor- ance for the bread of education, and for the true meat of the spirit, the serpent of superstition. Over all stood the Czar, the only free man in Russia, omnipotent as a Nero. His word was law, and to question it, treason. His officials were veritable despots and his courts were strangers to justice. Supported by the autocracy and the army, he closed the university and ex- iled students and instructors; he imposed exorbitant taxes and even confiscated property; he hanged or banished all who thought of freedom, and terrorized opposition into silence. All Russia, the corrupt state and the servile, fawning church, bowed to his imperial will. But there was one who saw the intense patriotism of the Slav changing to anarchy, who saw a pas- sionate love for the church becoming atheistic, but who saw, beneath the hopelessness of it all, the ifinite possibilities of Russia; and his wronged country called him to service. And how he responded! To enthrone justice where injustice had reifined; to right the unspeakable wi-ongs against his country- men; to free Russia from religious and political slavery; — such was the ideal of Tolstoi, the Moses of Russian Liberty! Into this new world, chained in ignorance and groveling in superstition, he comes to serve and love and help. See the joy that beams from the faces of his many serfs as he gives them liberty! See his patience and kindness as he labors among them, comforting, loving, encouraging! See their dumb appreciation and gratitude as he feeds the thou- sands duiing the recent famine! The whole world praised him, while the court sneered. But Tolstoi, who had drunk deeply from Fame ' s insatiating cup, had found the truest kindness in the fullest service. Meanwhile another Czar arose in the Kremlin who knew not Tolstoi and reform, and Russia groaned under the oppres- sion. The crushing taxes were increased and martial law was pi ' oclaimed. Banishment and executions became most fre- quent, and Russia seemed paralyzed by the Reign of Terror. But she was suddenly aroused from her apathy. Someone had fiercely denounced the imperial government, and had charged the higher officials and even the Czar, with the guilt of crimes most heinous. Like Demosthenes, he stood out alone, undaunted in the face of the most absolute government in the world, and hurled philippics that caused the very throne of the despot to totter. " Why did you so merciously hang those innocent peasants near Moscow? Bethink yourselves, you murderers, I cannot keep silent. " That anyone had de- fied the Czar and lived, was beyond belief. But it was Tolstoi, the friend of the people, who had voiced such sentiments, and the Iron Hand with all its power, dared not strike. The friends of freedom took heart, and liberty, almost extinct, received a mighty impetus, for the spell of the ages had been broken. At once Tolstoi became the idol of all Russia, for in him the demagogue saw his Utopia, the Nihilist his chaos, the oppressed his deliverance. With a word he could have placed himself at the head of the whole Russian peasantry, and like a Marat, could have brought on the horrors of a French Revo- lution. But witness his supreme statesmanship: " Fellow Russians, what we secure through violence will not endure. Let us forget our prejudices, and show ourselves worthy of the blessings of liberty, and then we shall receive them. " He was no demagogue, but a statesman; no petty politician, but a true patriot. Nor would he silently condone the acts of violence which were directed against the government. Con- demning alike the aristocrat and the anarchist, the royalist and the radical, he has proved himself to be the true apostle of conservatism and rationality. The greatest menace to Russian liberty is individualism. " We are fighting, " the rad- icals say, " in a most worthy cause. We must free Russia with our blood. " But, guided by the progressive conservatism of the Great Russian, they are abandoning their visionary theor- ies, and will lead Russia through a silent revolution to a government whose Reign of Peace will gladden many millions. But the radicals of his time had not this wideness of vision, and Tolstoi incurred their disfavor. The Revolution- ists, once his friends, deserted him, and he was left alone. This was the time for which the Czar had long been waiting. Knowing well the intensely religious character of his subjects, he drew the docile church into the controversy. Tolstoi was excommunicated; the Sacrament, the mass, and even the rites of sacred burial were denied him. Could he withstand this subtle power which had ever before proved irresistable in crushing opposition ? See him as he makes his masterful de- fense! How like Luther as he utters his scathing denuncia- tion! The insincerity, the spiritual barrenness, the open im- morality are disclosed, and the fall of the religious hierarchy is imminent. It was the people ' s love, more loyal to Tolstoi than the church, that saved him, and again the Czar had failed. How wonderful was the transformation in the lives of the churchmen! How great was the blessing when the veil of superstition was lifted! How grand was the sei-vice in giving Russia a purer religion! The national conscience is gradually being liberated; the religious shackles, forged by a corrupt clergy, are fast falling away, and Russia is moving out to a living Christianity. Through his teachings, his labors, his life, he has uprooted the weeds of despotism and ignorance; he has broken up the fertile soil of individualism; he has sown the rich seed of liberty whose golden harvest of freedom will some day make his people free and happy. The great Russian heart can but vaguely realize and mutely appreciate his strug- gles, but even now it loves him as a worshipped reformer, an immortal saint. Years have passed since the unhappy clash with the church, and we see Tolstoi, a white-haired old man in the even- ing of life, watching from his last sick-bed the dying Russian sunset. How pleasant, as he sees them now, are the pictures which he has hung in the Hall of Memory! What joy thrills him as he sees in the future a happy Russia! What peace and serenity smooth away the wrinkles of pain as he awaits the coming of Night. But the silence is broken. Prelates from the church have just craved an interview and are admitted. See them as they fawningly gather around the wasted foim and artfully wish him restored health. Hear their shameless message: " Count Tolstoi, the Most Holy Synod grants you absolution from all past sins against the sacred church; it re- vokes the bull of excommunication; it grants you again the Sacrament, the mass and sacred burial, if you will but repu- diate what you have said against the church. " The smoulder- ing fire of his tired eyes blazes forth. A flush of anger, then a frown of scorn mantles his brow. In words before whose awful truth they shrink back self-condemned, he cries, " Before God, I cannot, I will not retract. " And the worldly churchmen, repulsed, shamefully slink away. Few lives of all time have hsen so altruistic in service, so exalted in aspirations, so loyal to conviction, as that of I " " " The Nobleman of the Plow, " — one who lived that others might live more happily, and labored that others might enjoy the fruits of his labors. The abolition of serfdom, justice in the courts, religious liberty, and the Duma, that forerunner of popular government, all bespe ak a new Russia that will rise above the dark scenes of transition and unrest, — a Russia that is an America in her wealth of liberty, — a Russia where prosperity and enlightenment make glad the lives of all, of the peasant as he peacefully follows his plow, cf the artisan as he eagerly pursues his trade. The inidividual citizen, free in action and sovereign in power, happily governs, attaining to his highest self-development and transforming his beloved country into the first nation of Europe. A pure church, loved and revei-ed, is the instrument of true morality, while religious liberty and political freedom, God ' s greatest gifts to man, are the heritage of every Slav. There will be a monument to Tolstoi, a memorial more eloquent than mute marble, more expressive than silent stone, a free and happy Russian people! The Prohibition Oratorical Association of the Nebraska Wesleyan University is an organization which exists for the carrying on of two things: the study of the liquor traffic relative to abolishing it; and the development of the college orator. How well it has succeeded in the former respect can never be definitely known; but in regard to the educational influence upon the college man and woman its results are more marked. Through the agency of this association in Wesleyan, perhaps more persons have been trained in public speaking and private thinking than through any other organization. This is owing largely to the fact that the association has always been ex- tremely strong. Its local contests are often on a par with the inter-collegiate prohibition contests. During the eighteen years of its existence it has won no less than six of the state contests, or one out of every three; and in addition to this, it has won a number of second places. In the last inter-collegiate contest the association was represented by Simon E. Cozad. Mr. Cozad, who had served his apprenticeship in the local contests of 1910 and 1911, entered the contest of 1912 with an oration which he called " The Sixteenth Amendment. " By his freshness of thought, his clear-cut presentation, his polished and powerful delivery he won the contest from contestants who were especially strong. Later at the State Contest, which was hel dat Central City, Mr. Cozad won first easily, thereby earning the honor of representing Nebraska in the Inter- Collegiate Prohibition Contest at Red Wing, Minnesota, which contest will take place in the latter part of May. This contest took place May 10 and added one more tri- umph for the orator and for Wesleyan. This victory was a signal one, it being the first such victory in the history of our school and the second in the history of our state. One of the most gratifying things in connection with it is that Mr. Cozad had a clear lead of twelve points over all the contestants. With such encouragement as this we dare be very hopeful as to the outcome of the next contest to be held at Atlantic City, New Jersey. This National contest occurs in July during the National Prohibition Party Convention. l mtt (iratnrtral CLARENCE DAVIS Winner of the Local Contest. ©fitrrra W. B. Spaulding, President Clarence Davis, Vice-Presidenl R. B. Carey, Secretary-Treasurer ISiatory The local association was organized during the latter part of the first semester, 1911-1912. About ten young men indicated a desire to participate in an oratorical contest on the general subject of international peace, to be held in the early spring. Owing to the necessity of choosing an orator to represent Wesleyan at the State contest, April 1 was set as the date of the local contest, making it impossible for several to enter because of the shortness of time for preparation; no financial aid could be secured from the student ticket fund and the association had to meet difficulties along that line. These were some of the troubles of the pioneers that will not bother the association hereafter. Purpnar To promote the development of the sentiment for World Peace and to bring about the arbitration of all international difficulties, incidentally to train forceful and polished orators for efficient social service. Eift (Contrat The local contest was held in the auditorium April 1. Mr. Geo. Cracker, Supt. Stevens and ex-Mayor Don Love acted as judges and Professor. Churchill presided. The four orations delivered were of high class and received the hearty commendation of the judges. The contest was exceedingly close, th ere being only a few points difference in the final ranking. Mr. Clarence Davis won first place and Mr. W. B. Spaulding second. The speakers appeared in the following order: Stanley Blythe, " The Source of Peace. " Arthur DeBardeleben, " America ' s Mission. " ' " Walter B. Spaulding, " Militarism and World Peace. " Clarence Davis, " The Anglo-Saxon Obligation. " The Nebraska Inter-collegiate Contest was held at Omaha, April 12, con- testants competing for a first prize of $75.00 and a second prize of $50.00. Wesleyan ' s representative was awarded fourth place. Another year of debate has been recorded and though we are not the winners as far as decisions go, yet no one will question but that Wesleyan was represented by two of the strongest teams in the history of the institution. The system used in the selection of ' varsity men is especially to be com- mended. Each of the classes in the College of Liberal Arts held their preliminary and the sixteen thus selected were elig- ible to try for ' varsity. Also there was a number of class debates in which the question was thoroughly investigated and these became great experience for the different debaters. Through this complete system of preliminaries the real merits of the contestants were shown. The enthusiasm shown in these class forensic contests was very fine. In the first debate of the season the Seniors defeated the Juniors and in the second con- flict the Sophomores won from the Freshmen. In the final debate the Sophomores were victorious over the Seniors for the championship of the university. This year there were four debates, the first series with Washburn and the University of Omaha, and the second, triangular, with Dakota-Desleyan and Morn- ingside. In all except the contest with Omaha Uni- versity we were losers, still we are looking forward to next year with great expectations. We shall go into the coming battles all the more determined to get the judges ' as well as the popular decision. Professors Wells and Churchill are to be thanked for the good help, criticism and time which they gave to the team. Wesleyan is to be congratulated on having such competent men who have charge of debating. For the coming year arrangements are under way for a tri-angular debate with Baker and Washburn Universities. These schools have very high reputations in the Missouri Valley in debate, yet there is no doubt but Wesleyan will hold her own. (Elaaa ©pama Leech Tabor J. W.

In a school like the Nebraska Wesleyan there need never be any fear that the best interests of the institution will suffer lack of promotion for any great length of time. The type of students who are found here are insurance against that, for in such a body are always found those who will arise to the situation and lead their loyal fellow-students to the accomplish- ment of worthy enterprises. Yet it is obviously not bsst that the institution should depend entirely for the support of its great enterprises upon the chance efforts of a leader here and there. There is too much of the spasmodic in that. What is needed within a student body even of the Wesleyan type is organization. It is to meet this need that the organization known as the Booster ' s Club has been formed at Wesleyan. In it are gath- ered a few of the men and women from each class and depart- ment who have shown themselves of the Booster stripe and who will devote their efforts to the steady, consistent support of every phase of college activity. The club has now been in existence for three years and has fully demonstrated its utility. Its plan of procedure, how- ever, is to work unostentatiously to start action upon ideas and leave to the already existing forms of machinery — class or- ganization, etc. — the development of the work. By reason of this ihe real work of the club is not always known to the student body nor is it necessary that this should be, so long as the desired ends are accomplished. And while it is probable that the desired ends have not always been ac- complished and that the club has failed to get behind some of the movements that it should, it is safe to say that there are few great movements in the past three years but what have been directly traceable to this great organization which has continued to live while other clubs have died and which will continue to live while new organizations of various types shall appear and pass away.

It is the one organization whose purpose is to give the college girl an all-round develop- ment and an opportunity for effective service to her Master. Hence, every Wesleyan young woman who is striving for the broadest and best education is proud to be known as one of the 253 Y. W. C. A. girls in our university. Along with a ■ " greater Wesleyan " has come a greater Association. Under the enthusiastic leadership of Miss Clara Coulter, as General Sec- retary, advances have been made in every line of work, and the Association has been a strong factor in raising the standards of student life. Eleven Bible study and seven Mission study groups, under student leaders, have given broader visions of life to two hundred girls. The devotional meetings, held each Thursday afternoon, have quickened the spiritual life of all who attended them. Special features have been the Christian vesper service, the Passion Week meetings, and an exchange meeting with the Doane Association. Nor has the social side of the college girl ' s life b2en neglected. For many a girl the whole year has been brightened by the kindness shown her during registration week; by the jolly bunch of girls who called on her that first evening; by the fall reception, the Hallowe ' en frolic, the Tranksgiving Day " kid party, " or the " gym feed. " Sick girls and " shut-ins " have been cheered by flowers and visits from Association girls. The Association rest-room and telephone have been in almost constant use. The employment chairman has performed a practical and beautiful service in finding employment for girls who must make their own way through school. The Association has enjoyed the unfailing support of the Advisory Board and of the University faculty. The Advisory Board, with Mr. Milton Burns as chairman, has been of great help in a financial way. The efficient leadership. Christian womanhood, and consecrated service of Miss Coulter have been invaluable in carrying on the work. But thegreat good ac- complished has been made possible only by the faithful, earnest work of the Cabinet girls, and, most of all, by the loyal co- operation of each individual member of the Association. And through it all the motive power has been the " Spirit of the Lord of Hosts. " f xtmtg MmB OIl|riHttan Aaanrtatinn President, Fred E. Aden Vice-President, W. B.

We regret, however, that some men have not seen fit to identify themselves with this one demo- cratic organization intended for the upbuilding of every man. The Association meetings have been well attended, 99 hav- ing baen the average attendance for the year. One hundred University men have been connected with Bible study during the winter. Fifty men were enrolled in Mission Study work. The Association raised .$150 of the $200 pledged to Bishop Hartzell for Africa, and have secured $50 for the Foreign Work Department. Five Gospel teams have been out over the state during the year and report fifty conversions among the men and boys of the towns where they have been privileged to work. The lecture course was a great success as usual. A more expensive and very attractive course costing $840 has been secured for next year. The University men have co-operated with the Association of the high school and we trust that we may be able to work with them more another year. ASSOCIATION MEMBERS Hartsoug-h Rough Jeffries Wood Beck Wischmeier Dewhirst Ruyle Stutheit R. Sill Giles Hull Spencer G. Sill Clock Aden The Student Volunteer Band is an organization affiliated with t ' le Y. V . C. A. and Y. M. C. A. whose members purpose to become foieign missionaries. To become a Studen t Volunteer means more than an expression of mere willingness or desire to become a foreign missionary. It is a statement of definite purpose formed under the direction of God that the student fully purposes to spend his life as a foreign missionary. The motto of the Student Volunteer Movement is the " Evangelization of the World in this Generation. " This means to give to all men an adequate opportunity to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. To make the knowledge of the gospel accessible to all men is a challenge to strong young women and men who wish to invest their lives where their power will be highly multiplied. Former Volunteers who have sailed this year are Ethel Whiting of Beatrice who is now teaching in India, and Dr. Emma Robbins of Hastings who is doing medical work in China. During Bishop Hartzell ' s visit to Wesleyan this year the Student Volunteers made themselves responsible for the sup- port of a native preacher and his wife in Algeria at $200.00 a year. Sidi Muhammad el-Beddai is a converted Moslem and his work is with the Moslems and Jews of Tunis. Wilson, Hunter, Chenowith, String-fellow, Barr, Keegan, Cole, Miller, Beck, Cozad, Randall, C. C.

Our " Clev ' had left and the camp of Coyotes was in gloom. " Clev ' filled a big place and we knew that it would take an exceptional man to drive away our blues. And the exceptional happened. Last fall about one hundred and eighty lbs. of Kline blew in and all were anxious to size him up. He was weighed in the balance and we decided that we could at least hope. He had said that football was not in his line but he proved himself to be a master coach. His policy was work, work, work. He taught the boys to fight every minute and avoid any playing to the grandstand. It was this con- sistent, heavj ' pounding that knocked all adversaries to pieces. He built up a wonderful machine. " The best man for the place, " was his motto. He is to be commended for his handling of the reserves, for it was to their stubborn interference that a great deal of the team ' s endurance was due. Well, in short, we won the State Championship — hands down. Then came basketball. Here he showed the same tactics, fight, and endurance. The boys were in the game hard every minute. Star playing did not go. It was the same steady pounding that characterized the football team that won for us so easily the State Championship in Basketball, and indications are that we could run a good race for the Missouri Valley Championship if we were given the chance. Eight straight victories in baseball clearly indicate that the success which has sat upon our banner so far will not leave us. Now what of Kline, the man ? His attitude is character- ized by a fairness and an impartiality to be highly commended. He is a man of principle who is not afraid to stand up for what he thinks is right. A speech by him at the Y. M. C. A. banquet caused Secretary Baily to say, " Men, I ' ve been waiting for ten years to hear such words from the lips of an athletic coach. " Nor must we forget his short , pithy chapel speeches in which he pleads for absolute courtesy to the visiting teams and for loyal organized support of our men. Now, what has Kline done? Under his leadership Wes- leyan has won the State Championships in foot-ball and basket- ball. A fine spirit has been built up. He has had a hand in every movement for the betterment of Wesleyan. And last but not least, he has shown that athletics can be absolutely clean and that they are a real part of a man ' s education if they are directed along the right channels. Kline, you ' ve made a good start. We are with you and may next year be as successful in every way as this.

With only three old men back the outlook certainly was not encouraging-. But some of the best m.aterial that has been here for years turned up, and the six men who made the team were pushed hard for their places. It can hardly be said that this or that man was the star of the team, that each man played his position to the best of his ability is the reason why Wesleyan has a championship team. The " team may be truly called " Coach Kline ' s machine. " as the " Cotner Collegian " so ably put it. There is added glory in the fact that all of the players were picked for the all-state team. All-Stars 5.3 The first game was with the All-Stars, composed Wesleyan 27 of former Coyote stars, and although played after only two weeks ' practice, the team showed some of its possibilities. Lincoln Y. M. C. A. 24 In this game there was noticeable im- Wesleyan 25 provement in team-work and goal throwing. The permanent line-up was chosen as follows: Keester and Gary, forwards; McCandless at center; and Hill and Swan as guards. The Y. M. C. A. team was composed of three old Wesleyan stars and three from Cotner. Doane 21 The game was played at Crete. Wesleyan ' s Wesleyan 27 team-work and endurance showed up and stood them in good stead. Gary and Hill were the stars, but all acquitted themselves well. Grinnell 29 This was the big game of the season for the Wesleyan 37 visitors were the champions of Iowa for three years and one of the best teams in the West. It was one of the prettiest games ever seen on the Wesleyan floor. The Grinnell team is one of the most gentlemanly bunches that ever came to Wesleyan. Each man filled his place so faultlessly that no one can be said to have been the star. Lincoln Y- M. C. A. 32 The only game lost during the season, Wesleyan 31 was played at Lincoln. This was at the time of depression following the death of Dr. Huntington and the team showed the lack of prac- tice. The game was very rough and the refereeing rather par- tial. York 18 The team seemed to be in form again and Wesleyan 83 exhibited excellent team-work. York went home with the report that: " The Wesleyan team played so fast that you could not see them. " Hastings 19 Hastings was the only college now standing in Wesleyan 48 the way of the state championship and they were reputed to be a hard proposition. Wes- leyan ' s team-work again showed up and Hastings could not stand the pace. Keester and McCandless were the individual stars while the rest of the team played wonderful ball. York 19 Played at York. On account of the late arrival Wesleyan 62 of the train the first half was poorly played, but in the second half they toyed with the York players. Soon the score was too large for the scoreboard. Fairmont Athletic Club 22 At Fairmont the Floor was very Wesleyan 33 small. This team had not been de- feated for a long time upon their home floor. There was frequent fouling and with Keester on the sick list the score was held down. Grinnell 19 Probably the hardest fought game of the season Wesleyan 20 was at Grinnell. Grinnell again showed her sportsmanship and the crowd cheered Wesleyan almost as much as its home team. Grinnell ' s defense was al- most perfect and could never have been solved had it not been for the superb team-work of Wesleyan. This game gave Wes- leyan a claim to the Missouri Valley championship — which was never settled, for the Nebraska Univei ' sity refused to play us. Cotner 6.5 Wesleyan probably exhibited the best team-work Wesleyan 65 of the season along with goal-shooting of a fancy nature. Hill and Swan starred, both on floor-work and in goal-shooting. This was Swan ' s last game for the Coyotes and he will leave a lasting impression of his prowess. His place will be hard to fill. Adversaries 291 Coach Kline gave the team a banquet at the Wesleyan 609 Lindell Hotel at the close of the season, at which " Tony " Keester was elected captain for 191.3. The team made a total of 609 points as against her ad- versaries ' 291 mark, a remarkable record. Another thing of which we are proud is that all of the men are clean and gentlemanly. We should not forget the Reserves who fought so valiantly to whip the team into shape. Those deserving- special mention are: Hull, Bimson, Peck, Hudson, Knight, Stout, Kline, and Hotchkiss.

The illness of Coach Kline was a hard blow to track work, and we believe that if he had been with us our men would have scooped everything as they have in foot-ball, basket-ball and base-ball. Too much credit cannot be given to Roy Wilson for the faithful work that he has done with the team. Prospects are good for winning the inter- collegiate meet in Hastings. By mistake no mention was made of the fact that Pete VanAllen is the Captain of the Baseball team — the Inter- Collegiate Champions. Mr. Van Allen, who is an all around athlete, was also the Quarterback of this year ' s Championship Football team. . ■ Haworth Chamberl in Davis Reynolds Stout Peck Wilson (Cap ' t) Hill Gillilan Fawell Lobb Dally Harsttg olntms Q mm Last year the tennis team was the undisputed champions of the Missouri Valley, having won from several minor schools and having defeated on three separate and distinct occasions the fast Nebraska team which held the Missouri Valley Confer- jnce Championship. This year, while we miss Patridge, who was one of the steadiest ever representing Wesleyan, still we have Davis, who is, without doubt, one of the best players ever at this institution. Raynor, who won the individual championship of the Missouri Valley last year, is again playing in his old form. Judging from the outlook the team will duplicate the feat of winning every match as did our representatives of last year. While the complete arrangements for this year ' s schedule is not completed, yet games have already been matched with Baker, Nebraska, Doane, and Manhattan, as well as several other institutions. Dean McProud is to be given credit, for it is through his coaching and effort that the team has attained much of its present standing.

THE qooD OLb tuJirnt Simple tltr Wihe Wxhc Warih (A tale concerning a youth who journeyed into a happy land) Once there was a Student Simple Who desired to be wise, And go into the wide, wide world. So he parted from his parents And his home with streaming eyes, And went into the wide, wide world. Now as Student Simple journeyed. He reached a land of flowers. And trees, and castles, stately, tall and grand. Where youths and maidens sauntered Through the happy, sunny hours And with merry songs and laughter filled the land. Here the pilgrim student tarried In the land so fair to see. So entrancing to his travel-weary eyes; For he learned that in these castles. Teaching pilgrims such as he. Dwelt men exceeding learned and very wise. Then was Student Simple, dreading, Taken into dim-lit halls Where his name was put into a mighty book. He was puzzled and affrighted At great symbols on the walls, And the men of knowledge with their fearsome looks. Then men of wondrous wisdom. With devices there arranged. Looked into his very heart, or so it seemed, And he quaked with hidden terror. And with fright was sore dismayed As their eyes through gloomy darkness fiercely gleamed. As he halted, darkness gathered. And the laughing songs were not. Magic wind-wrought evil while he slept. The morn rose chill and gloomy; ' Twas a different seeming spot, And with an evil rain the Heavens wept. And he fled into his chamber — Still the evil spell was there; He found there all things in it upside down. His heart grew sick and lonesome And he longed to go back where No magic in the world was ever found. Moaning much, he fell in slumber And behold, when he awoke All things were fair and happy in the land!

Th ' top av th ' marnin ' to ye, Hinnisey! — Hazel F. Bailey. Upon the Doane game hung heaven, earth, and the State Championship. Wesleyan chartered a special train; filled it to overflowing with rooters, pennants, sashes, megaphones, a monster college band, and a mighty football team. Arriving, the special disgorged its load of screaming enthusiasm, its roaring band, its invincible team and sent them thundering- through the peaceful streets paralyzing the living and waking the dead. The game was fearful and nerve-racking. First quarter no score — terrible strain; second and the third passed — - no score. Women fainted; strong men wept. The fourth quarter: three minutes to play and Wesleyan, WESLEYAN, crossed the line! The earth rocked, turned around twice; the sun rose, sank and rose again to dance across the sky. The game was won! Men and women saw it, but not alike. HE DOES At the game Is Archie seen. Violent hat and Sweater green; A double action Si ' ren screamer; Mass of noise and Yellow streamer. Unaware, his Hat is gone. Busted is his Megaphone. The game is on, In ardor hot — He falls, is stepped on. Knows it not. Forges madly Through the crowd. Which murmurs things More deep than loud. Follows ball, Deaf as stone To all else that Goeth on. Eyes but see the Pigskin brown. Brain but knows the Yards and downs; Home and friends, Sky and sea Lost in roaring Eestii v. Game roars on Without a score — Time to play Three minutes more. Touchdown made! Earth is split, Lungs are scattered Over it. Where is Archie ? He is gone. He blew up when Game was won. SHE GOES To the game Fair Bernice goes; A girl summed up by Looks and clothes. Beauty shop And dressmaker Have added many Things to her. Perfumed air Round her that day Would shame the scented Fields of May. Her flower-like face Leaves one impressed She ' s found a barrel of " Gooch ' sBest. " The game begins. The stirring drum Removes her thoughts From chewing gum. And sends them wandering O ' er the field Where men run round with Noses peeled. She likes the other Team the best. Because she " loves The way they ' re dressed. " The mighty end she Notes with scorn Because she sees His sweater ' s torn. She sees the game with Eyes that see Not gains and punts but Mystery. And when at last The struggle ' s o ' er. Fair Bernice does not Know the score. No doubt she thinks The game would be Much better if they Served pink tea. — R. A.

Certainly, it was a fine after- noon outside, a welcome relief from library duty for you poor duffers, I don ' t doubt. Yes — yes, indeed, I remember library days. I used to anchor a couple of thousand pages for Wells, myself. The races ? Yes, they were good — a trifle tiresome possibly. What a fine Athletic Park there is. We used to play right out in the prairie. Folks appreciated it when they didn ' t have a grand stand to sit in. Makes better rooters for one thing. We ' d station wild Coyoes around to chas( everyone who had a bad conscience and no ticket. Even then some insisted on using the library windows. " Shot put? Yes, he did do a good job of it. You don ' t think me very enthusiastic? Well, how could I be? Let me tell you a few things. " You kidlets in school don ' t know what ' scrap ' means. Why, you poor white-gloved gents! You ' re too polite to be entertaining. That football rush — shucks. It looked like a sham battle of the little tin soldiers you see in the Ten Cent store — the kind that ride on a ' Tin Gee Gee. ' " No, not at all. I wouldn ' t be sarcastic for the world. Those races? Why the fellows didn ' t get their pedals under way till they were past the line and the show was over. And all the rest of the " rational " affair! Shucks! They got their digits so mixed up with the rest of their anatomy that — but what ' s the use ? " What do a set of Nabisco-fed Dorothy Dainties know of real scraps? Talk about ' rational sports. ' You ' re a downright heretic. Time was, when classes fought to the last ditch. As long as a man staid above ground, he was knee deep in gore. Any Soph who came out of a scrap like that with one eye that wasn ' t black, or one arm that didn ' t need a sling, or one inch of skin that wasn ' t raw, wasn ' t worth his salt, and it didn ' t take us long to tell him so. " Oh, you think I ' m stretching things, do you? You poor innocent children, I wonder if you ever heard of the fight with Cotner at the top of the standpipe, or the Junior-Senior battle in the old chapel ? Oh, those were the days and those were the scraps! Men were carried off the field right and left as fast as the doctors could dodge in and pull them out of the heap of wounded. Insurance agents didn ' t bother us those times. It was the rag man and the Undertakers who got the rich hauls then. " You never saw fellows wallow in the mud till you couldn ' t tell Obie from Dickens. No, and you didn ' t parboil in a dirt wagon during a jolt out to Steven ' s Creek, or you didn ' t blister your bare feet trudging back those six miles. Or you didn ' t go raving crazy and lay unconscious for days while great psy- chologists came to study your case. You never saw a hundred girls fight like mad tigers over a pennant. Hat pins flew till they darkened the sun. And the hair ! " Yes, yes, certainly, the Olympics was a very pleasant affair. " — Anna M. Lane. October 26.

He was a good and kind King and spent most of his days in his large castle which he called " The University. " His subjects were many and great, and in all the world there was not a happier or greater kingdom than that of " Wesleyan. " The Wesleyan army was the best in the land and thc- King ' s generals the bravest. He had many squads of valiant defenders of his colors. There was the fast, ferocious " Basket Ball " squad, the pride of the regiment. To it was given the defense of the fort which in the kingdom of Wesleyan was known as " The Gym. " The old gym was small and almost in ruin, and in time of an invasion from neighboring kingdoms could hardly hold the mass of common people who sought safety within its gates. Beside the " Basket Ball " company, there were others who joined in the defense of the outer walls. Among these de- fenders were the mighty companies known as the " Foot Ball Squad, " " The Track Team " and " The Base Ball Team, " all of which were very brave and daring, each under the leadership of a bold general. However, gallant as his knights were, the King saw as did the common people and the whole kingdom, that he mus: have a new fort or let his warriors suffer defeat. But, alas! the kingdom had had many wars, which had reduced the public treasury. The good King was greatly perplexed, but at last, after a meeting of his Lords and High Councilors, they hit upon a sche me. The King would pawn his crown jewels, which would raise half the required amount and an appeal would bi made to the populace for the rest. A great banquet was proclaimed throughout the land, at which the King mads known his proposition to his people. Great was the cheering of the multitude and thus started the new Gym. Craftsmen of all sorts were among the common people, who eagerly volunteered to erect this great structure. But, alas! every fall the University was visited by a dread disease known among the common people as " Classes. " No one of youth in all the kingdom was exempt and it kept the doctors, known in those days as " Profs., " very busy, but in spite of their combined efforts some of Wesleyan ' s most popu- lar subjects passed away. Furthermore, men were not enough upon the walls to complete its erection within the given time. At last the King adopted the following plan. Every day at an appointed hour all able bodied subjects assembled in the throne room. Here he would select the men who would work for the day, and his little page, Alabaster, would cry out their names. Jn the meantime, the King sent his foot-ball warriors under General Kline, a brave and gallant Knight, to every castle in all Nebraska. Fast and furious were the battles and Wes- leyan ' s men fought as never before when they thought of the unprotected fort at home and the awful pestilance of " classes. " At last they returned with the shield of every King in all the state. Then came the great joy. The master craftman an- nounced the completion of the fort. Great was the rejoicing from one end of the kingdom to the other. A big celebration was held, attended by the King and Queen, with the whole Court. Every Knight brought his fair Lady and the galleries were filled to overflowing with the common people. And now the good King rules on in peace and plenty. And once more there is no happier kingdom than that of " Wesleyan. " — R- R. Rausch, ' 15 December 20. All go home for a Merry Christmas. 2.3. W. F.

At times it stormed so much That Rollyn Rausch and neighbors Were forced to miss their " dutch! " The world was in cold storage, Yet ' tis not amiss to say That a miss or many misses Spoiled (for sleigh rides every day). The students carried shovels As Chinese carry fans; And the walks they took were numbered By the blisters on their hands. The drifts lay on the car tracks In mighty hills and heaps, Until it seemed as though the world Were salted down for keeps. And all the stranded street cars Were lined as on parade In long and gloomy stretches At the bottom of each grade. But at length the smiling Springtime Met the morning with her blush, And the world was full of sunshine. Full of ditches, full of slush. Those vast white snowy stretches In green meads are lost and gone And the streams from melting snowdrifts, Lost in flowers, no longer run.

" ulltu r OInmmttB An tli r ©rand My father was a poor but honest tinker. I was the second of four sons. The only home I ever knew was in the small village of Lincoln, Nebr. I was always inclined to wander and upon several occasions was absent from home for long- periods of time. Once I landed at Havelock, where I served as a fuzz chaser in a feather factory. Another time I em- barked as a stowaway on a light craft of the Morris Trans- portation Co. While at home I attended school at rather irregular inter- vals. It was always my father ' s ambition that I be a freak collector for a dime museum. With this purpose in view I was finally sent to Nebraska Wesleyan University. Soon after I arrived the Tinker ' s Union threw my father out of employment for mending a powder-puff on a rainy day. Thrown upon my own resources I resolved to finish my course in spite of all opposition. I soon found employment with a very learned rag-picker. My work was very easy and pleasant. Three times each day I was required to coax the fleas away from the French poodle so he could sleep. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I picked catapillars for a pet monkey. My master was very kind and I spent two happy years in his home. Upon the death of the monkey, however, I was warned that I might have to depart any day and, when the fleas came down with the measels, I was again face to face with the problem of my support. The next two years were of great prosperity and promise. Upon the athletic field I won the gold medal for sifting the most cinders through a tea-strainer. I represented my Alma Mater in the Inter-Collegiate guessing contest. Its object was to keep all the contestants guessing. I was kept guessing the longest and so won the honors. Work was plentiful. It would not be proper, for many reasons, to trouble the reader with the complexities of my tasks. Let it suffice to say I was off ered large opportunity for seivice and sought to avoid it whenever possible. Just prior to my graduation I experienced a very strange adventure. As I walked one day along a cinder path a few paces from the heating-plant I came suddenly upon a gapping crevice in the earth. My momentum was so great I could not stop and the next instant I was dashing downward at ter- rific speed. I reversed the engine and tried the emergency break but to no avail. The darkness at first was intense but soon below me shown an increasing glow. Now and then I caught an oder of burn- ing paper and old rags. After an endless period I landed with a jolt on a pile of rubbish. I was dazed for a moment but soon began to take notice of my surroundings. I was in a long dark cave. As my eyes became accustomed to the black- ness I perceived in the distance an arched doorway. As I drew near I saw inscribed above it the word, " Hades. " I produced my 400 ticket and was immediately permitted to enter. Turning to hang up my hat I found that Professor Churchill had used the only peg. I threw my hat in a corner and started to follow the railroad track which led down a dim passage to the south. I was startled by an awful din and sprang from the track just in time to avoid being run down by a flat-car going in loaded with equipment from the com- mercial department. On the rear of the car was inscribed, " Gone but not forgotten. " My new path was very narrow and I was almost carried from my feet by a motor-cycle which dashed by at an awful pace. I followed the noise and fumes as best I could and was surprised upon coming into an open space to find Professor Brightman, dust-stained but perfectly happy, flirting with a mermaid who reclined in a pool of hot soap-suds. An amazing scene now lay spread before me. To my right, from a stricken tree hung a much-used tackling dummy. Here Coach Kline was prodding several burly imps with a pronged fork and thus gently urged them to run, spring in the air, dive at the dummy and spin on their heads just beyond. To my left in a large vat Professor Morrow ' s head showed just above a flood of sulphuric acid and other chemicals. Now and then a thoughtful student tried, with a small bellows to relieve him by blowing ammonia in his face. Across a boiling stream a group of former chapel speakers were chained to red-hot seats and forced to listen to a cracked phonograph record which said over and over again, " Bright and smiling faces, bright and smiling faces. " The crowd now began to rush toward a large hill passing on the way a bunch of Conservatory students who had to walk barefooted over a bridge of tacks without making a sound. The hill proved to be a large toboggan of rough sand-paper. Down it were being hurled those students who had not attended the pan-Wesleyan Banquet. A sky seemed to over- hang the place and I could see through a haze the ruddy face of an auburn-haired cherub who watched this scene with much pleasure. Just then I heard in the distance the rumble of another car and a chorus of voices, Mickey ' s high above the rest, chanting that familiar old hymn, " Cheer, cheer, the gang ' s all here. " There was now a great jangle of bells and Peck, who had been sitting on a cake of ice fanning himself with a tooth-pick, rose and announced through a megaphone, " Time for chapel. " Everyone rushed to a large amphitheatre built of asbestos. IL was convocation morning and the Barber-shop Rest Club was in charge. The first number was a series of poses representing the many graceful ways of reclining on an oyster cracker without exertion or strain. After the announcements exhibi- tions of pill rolling, etc., were given, after which the meeting was thrown open for the discussion of " Tough Topics. " I decided to spend my remaining time in looking about. In the machinery hall were many strange devices, among them a treadmill for " grinds. " Jensen was busy at a large forge making grappling hooks for catching wireless messages and a new device for cracking chestnuts. I was just going to speak to him when a teriffic explosion occurred. I was lifted from my feet, which I very much re- gretted leaving behind, and dashed through the ceiling. I shot out into the bright sunshine, hovered for a moment in the air and settled down again on the same old pile of rubbish. Out- side the birds were singing, the band was playing, and on the soothing zephys floated the mournful strains of " Boom Rah " and " Ki Yi. " Sadly I wiped the sand from my eyes and crawled to the surface, knowing full well that Wesleyan had raised a million endowment and that for the time being my worries were over.

Whence this chieftain, this great leader. I should answer, I should tell you. They have left the r fields and woodlands, j-.eft their plains and their prairies. And have come here to this Wesleyan To this land of joy and sunshine. They have fought in many battles And have conquered through their courage. Now they tell how this great leader Placed the green and white before them. Lead them on to victory always. Now they gather round the campfire. Itound the wigwam in the forest. They divide the spoils among them. Give to those who have been faithful And have earned the much-loved honors. Then the chieftain brings the peace-pipe, Lights it at the glowing embers, ' J ' liunUs Manito, the great spirit, For his help and his protection — Now they smoke the pipe together. Smoke the Calumet, the peace-pipe. Now they vow to work together For the glory of their colors And the honor of old Wesleyan. Once again the tribe lias gathered From the valleys of Nebraska. From the western plains and prairies. They have heard of mighty warriors Who are coming to destroy them And to earn their much-loved honors. Then their chieftain, he who loves them. Looks upon them, full of courage. Over them he stretched his riglit hand To enconrage and to help then). Loud his voice he raised in anyuish. " Oh Manito! Spirit Mighty! Look upon my children waiting. Send some word to cheer and bless them. We are fearful lest these warriors Come down here and overcome us. Send some to us. Great One, Give us strength and give us wisdom. " Then the spirit, strong and mi.ghty. Listened to their words of pleading. Answered them as would a father : " Ah my children. oh my chllddreu, I have given you many victories And have let you conquer always. . nd have promised to protect you. Why then are you discontented. Why then will you wait and wonder? Up! and stir you for the battle. Paint with red your arms and faces. Sharpen all your death-like weapons.

Cornish Amelia Wood ....Josephine Starrett ...Thomas Neighbors Weldon Crossland Adeline Leininger Beulah Ward Jessie Moyer As the students, oid and new, came throng-ing to Wes- leyan, in the fall of 1909, ninety-two Freshmen, who had learned just enough to know how little they did know, meekly neared the legistrar ' s desk and told what they wanted to be- come in the world. Never before had so many Freshmen entered Wesleyan at one time. With the cordial welcome al- ways awaiting the new student and with especially the genial hospitality tendered them at the Sophomore-Freshman Re- ception ,they soon began to lose their ? ? ? ? ? of timidity. They boldly entered the new life, with all the enthusiasm that is sure to come to a Wesleyan student. It was these F ' reshmen, who set the pace for chapel stunts which has been followed ever since by the succeeding classes. They first revealed their power of muscle, for it was the Freshmen who win in the Freshman-Sophomore scrap and the Freshman-Sophomore Flag Rush. Each year they have con- tributed to the ' Varsity athletic teams, — one on the basket-ball team in 1909-1910, two on the foot-ball team in 1910 and one in 1911. In base-ball, they succeeded in capturing the uni- versity championship of 1911. But they have shown much more brightly in brain than in brawn. For two years, they won the university cham- pionship in debate; and have furnished two on the ' Varsity debating team last year, and three this year. As for orators, they have at least seven who are active, and a Junior was awarded this year ' s state championship. The students have considered their ability in business affairs and have looked to these classmen for the business management of both the Coyote and Wesleyan of 1911-1912 and that the of Wesleyan for 1912-1913. Juniors have also been elected to the editorships of the Coyote and the Wesleyan for the coming year. The class does not believe in the attainment of diplomas by making base pretensions, but rather by being earnest, sincere and enthusiastic along all educational lines. They are giving the best of their talents to their work, and are thereby getting the most from their application. In such endeavors many have already been granted student positions in physics, grammar, English and elocution. On the different days of prayer for colleges, the Juniors have held most inspiring meetings and they have shown their interest in the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. to such an extent as to furnish the President foi- the Y. M. C. A. in 1911, and the Presidents of both the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. for 1913. The Junior class has three representatives in the Univer- sity Male Quartet, which has been on the National Bureau circuit this year. Their work is highly appreciated at home and abroad. The Juniors are fighting a good fight, and are ready and well prepared to receive the caps and gowns, which will soon be their to claim. p. E. ADEN University Place. Theophanian.

Keester We registered in nineteen-ten A hundred twenty maids and men; We chose for president Ben Beclc (And had some dandy bums, by heck). Because a dummy we had fixed, One day the Sophs and us got mixed; We tied them up and hauled them out, Then left them there to roam about. ' Twas after that on Friday night. When friendship ruled in place of might, That we were entertained by them At Walsh Hall, Lincoln, eight p. m. We beat the Sophs Olympic Day, But in debate they had their way. When basketball was going well, Before our boys the Soph ' mores fell. Semester two went smooth enough With president as Em ' ly Rough. Our basketball girls won a game — The Sophie girls, they played so tame. On banquet night, ' fore many folk For us there Clarence Davis spoke. We next received the Sophomores With friendly hearts and welcome doors. On Arbor Day, Bill Fawell ' s speech Was given well and liked by each. In baseball we got one lone score. The Sophomores, a couple more. To Jessie Lehr, Commencement time. Ten dollars went — her grades were fine. Vacation time went flying by And then there came the farewell sigh As back to school again we came To study hard and earn more fame. For president we chose a man Who worked for us with brain and pan; And Harold Cozier we have found To be the best for miles around. We gave the Freshmen, pretty soon, A reception big, with hearts in tune. Out on Johnson field, I say. The Freshies won Olympic day. But when the football game was played The Freshmen far behind us stayed. In basketball the Soph ' more class Played hard, and did the rest surpass. Debate was given rich reward For vict ' ries two it could afford, And both the ' 12 and ' 15 teams Must bow to us, though hard it seems. Our convocation. Chapel hour, Was to our class a lovely flower. Semester two, before us went John Miller, as president. Our basketball girls did such work — Not one there who tried to shirk — To shoot the most goals was their rule And now they ' re " champeens " of the school. The masquerade was one big night With fun and costumes out of sight. The night the Freshmen made us glad Went, oh! so fast; it ' s really sad. From eight to twelve the time ' s so short It breaks up every kind of sport. A week from that on Banquet night Dwight Griswold spoke for us just right. On Arbor Day again this year ' Twas William Fawell we did hear. Therefore, we ' ve done some things, you see. And great and splendid though they be. The next two years we trust and hope Will be as full, and broad in scope. — H. E. Shopbell. FRED ADEN Hemet, Cal. Theophanian. Dramatic Club. " My mirth and humor are coin ii: purse.

While half-backs, on the grid-iron, Do bump each other ' s pate! And when at books we weary And think to go to bed Those class-book records haunt us All those marks in black and red. We ' d gladly yield our places But here we are a-wasting To students better ' n we.

We played or tittered or fell asleep ' Neath the gravest lectures there, The world was a spot where guile was not And all things harmless were. But now, alas, that dream is smashed. If I get my figure right. We ' ve lived to see it ruthlessly Knocked higher than a kite. As I remember, one august Wells Upon a gladsome day, Gave a pop-gun exam — not a minute to cram. They took us home on a dray. 1 0 Since then the stars have ceased to shine, The earth is an echoing tomb, Where those who can ' t beat sixty-nine Are lost in the fearful gloom. — R. A.

Kidd Spencer 3ln QlnnrluHton As the year draws to a close and we watch the results of our work as it comes from the press, sheet by sheet, we have a feeling of mingled satisfaction and regret. We have given ourselves unreservedly to this task. We have stinted the work in neither time nor energy. We have hesitated at no sacrifice of pleasure. With all the means at our com- mand we have sought to give a true picture of student life at Wesleyan. We wish to express our sincere thanks to the loyal support of so many — to the Staff, to various committees and to Coach Kline, who has shared his office with us. Especially do we wish to mention the tireless and excellent work of Ethel Delzell, the designer. Carmen Fischer and Grace Harris have contributed many drawings and cartoons. Harry Shop- bell has photographed and printed, etc., day and night. Hazel Bailey and Roy Wilson and others have added to the literary portions. The Coyote belongs to you, the students of Wesleyan. If you want a different type of Annual; it is your to say. It will be a photo- graph album, or a stunt book, or a literary magazine, or a combination of all, as the stu- dents desire. But the desire must be made known when the plans are being laid, not after the book is out. Improvement will come principally as you demand a better book, furnish better material, respond more promptly with photographs and write-ups, and take more interest in its progress. With these parting words we leave with its owners the COYOTE OF 1912.
