Columbus, O D Dedication URING the past six years Dr. John R. Macarthur has been a member of the faculty of this college, and he has been a power for good in the institution. Possessing great ability and a genial personality, by his conse- cration to his teaching and his loyalty and devotion to every good cause, he has won the hearts of the students and of the people. He has labored faithfully to stimulate the formation of noble, righteous characters. He has ever been ready and willing to sympathize with and assist those in need. He has exercised a Christian, brotherly care for young men, and to his influence many may ascribe their aspirations for a purer, higher life. ' To have enjoyed the pleasure of his association has been no small privilege, and in recognition of this, on his retirement from this college to enter a larger field of work, the Junior Class dedicates to him this volume of Tke Swastika.

Four years we have been together, Like chips on waters smooth ; But now we must part asunder And your companionship lose. Life is just an ocean On which the angry waves rise; ' hile numerous troubles crowding Darken all the skies. Like chips that i oat about And on the current ride ; One wave may bring us together And the next may carry us wide. So with us all it is, Amid our tiiil and strife: We are all but a cliip. Just a chip on the ocean of life. But, now we must part, Since our College days are o ' er ; Tho ' we hope to meet again In the days that lie before. Signed " A .Scribbler. 26 Junior Class OFFICERS.

Unsuccessful in lo e he takes revenge in slamming two-baggers across the diamond to the infinite deliglit of all other under-dogs. His record in classes forbids the im- plying of anything on that score although the taking of that course in which he is registered will probably necessitate his returning in 1912 for stenographic work.

Spends part of the week getting out the College paper and the balance of the time getting out of the way of those irate victims of his yellow journal who will not accept apologies. He doesn ' t believe in going with the girls, but he goes just the same. He will make a valiant effort to graduate on time. 29 PKRCY C. FITZ GERALD (Old Has- Been), Roswell, New Mexico. " Slow but sure " could not be more appropriately applied to any one else. especially the last part of the quotation. He claims that he hasn ' t time for girls, athletics, journalism or any of the other side shows, but in an emergency he will exhibit a remarkable adaptability to any of the above diversions. Fitz is a farmer of marked (ability and recently was the President of the Agricultur.d Club. GEORGE R. QUESENBERRY (Change), Las Cruces, New Mexico. He is quite high up in the world, — at least his head. George has been with the class since 1902; in fact he is all that is left of the original class. He was once President of the " bunch " but resigned for the reason that he found the ceiling an uncomfortable restriction when he had to stand on a six-incli platform. In addition to the fact that he is a member of the Agricultural family, it miglit be said in recommendation of him ; — " There is a whole lot to him. " JOSEPH W. RIGNEY (Judge or Rig), Cross Roads, Alabama. J. W. is the latest addition to ' 11 and certainly one of its most valuable members. He was a dark horse in the debating line, but he proved to be a speedy animal in the race for the inter-collegiate team. Mr. Rigney is an adept in the incubator business and a worthy example of the worthy ruralities. There IS yet another feather: — he is the President of that progressive organization known as the Agric. Club. 30 WILIJAM E. CAMPBELL (Jack), Bower Mills, Missouri. Tliis corpulent individual has been with the class for half a decade. He is from tlie land of " Show me " and if you rub his fur the wrong way he exhibits all llie characteristics of that animal native to the muddy state. The chief aim of his life is to be a civil en , ' ineer, but his main endeavor is concentrated on keeping his avoirdupois below the 200 pound mark. Constant handling of the long green and jingling tin during the last two years, while " samburger " dis- poser and Round-L ' p manager has earned for him the appellation of " Chief Grafter. ' ' BERTHA MAYER, hite Oaks, New Mexico. From the Sub-Freshman class. Bertha has kept steadily abreast of her class- mates and is consequently a full-fledged Junior. She is one of the few girls who believe that a degree from a technical school is worth while. In Miss Mayer we find a girl of the reliable, dependable sort and one for whom everyone has something respectful to say. She is an active Y. W. C. A. worker and for two vears has held office in the association. JOHN POWERS (Push), Santa Rita, New Mexico. Johnie joined the " bunch " when it was known as the Junior Prep class. He is Irish and proud of it and possesses all of the race ' s conversational and oratorical powers. Furthermore, he is the embodiment of first, class, and then college spirit. Of course he is taking an engineering course, but in our gener- osity we cannot hold that against him. He has never petted the girls, but he often allows them to pet him. 31 SEWALL E. MERRILL (Farmer), Santa Rosa, New Mexico. He started out pretty well in his Freshman year, but he has been slowing down until t he beginning of the present year when he spied something i)rettv by the road side and he almost came to a full stop. He is a man who lias no particular aversion for College side sliows for lie has been everything from Football Manager to Swastika Editor. He has no mean ability, neither has he a single redeeming trait beyond the fact that he is a FARMER. }E PAUL BROWNLEE (Pauline), I s Cruces, New Mexico. Two years ago he was a Sophomore. During last year he was enrolled in the Freshman class and now, by some miracle, he is a Junior and also the Business Manager of the volume you hold in hand. Before coming here, he was a farmer, and now, to supplement his practical experience, he is taking scientific work. He is therefore a good example of the progressive evolution of the modern agriculturist. 32 WovHom z Sophomores Oi.AF Windsor --------- President John K. Haggaut ------ J ice President H.

" We, the class of 1910, have passed the second mile-post on the road of our college life. Just a year ago, we left behind us the one marked " Freshman " — now we are Sophomores — dignified Sophomores. The story of the early experiences of the members of the 1912 class has already been told. Today the class is small, numbering only seven — a mystic number. The ability of the class cannot be judged by this. Numbers do not always mean superiority. Out of the seven, six are engineers, or to be more specific six are registered as engineering students, and the solitary " farmer " — well, he knew no better; he thought this being an Agricultural College, he must take " Ag. " The ' 12 Class is proud of the honors which the members have won for our college. Rupert Stewart secured first place in the local Oratorical Contest, and third place in the Intercollegiate. " Kilby " as for- ward and Tommy as center are two of the fastest basketball men on the college team. Windsor played end and Haggart quarterback on the second football eleven. Thomas and Windsor made the first team in baseball. Six of the class are officers in the Battalion ; Ca])t. Deemer, Lieut. Stewart, Lieut. Wilson, Lieut. Herrmann, Sgt. Major Windsor, and Sgt. Haggart. Thomas is a member of the band. The class is represented in all college activities and has done its part well in every thing entered. W ' itJi final " exams " over, we shake many hands, and extend good wishes and hopes to meet again next year as Juniors. 34 bophomore Directory ifi NAME Detriment Forever Deemer.

Hugh Fi.ovd ---------- President Edwin Lyon --------- J iee President Lethi. MiTCHF.iJ. -------- Secret ar Associated with August 31, 1909, will be remembered what turned nut to be the most inipdrtant event in the history of the ' 13 class, namely, its fonnation. During the first few days of our College work we remained in a sort of comatose state, acting upon the famous motto of Napoleon, that " Children should be seen and not heard. " Looking back on that time we cannot l)ut think how lucky the future Freshmen will be in having a grass-covered campus to help in making them api)ear less conspicuous, while we had nothing of our own tone, nothing to modify our ver- dancy. The contrast between ourselves and our wise upper classmen has been glaring indeed. But we soon found that it was our duty to add more events to our class history. The first awakening came when footliall practice was announced, and to our amazement we found that the captain of the team was a Freshman, and three others from our class became players on the first team, while we had one rep- resentative on the second team. The only girl from our class that played basketball was chosen captain of the team for the coming year. We now began to realize what powers were lying dormant in this so-called verdant class. Two debat- ing teams were formed, and one of the note-worthy things the first team did was to defeat the Juniors on the question of Tariff. Eleven members of this Freshman class take active part in the Current Topics Club; five took part in the College Oratorical Contest; two are working for the Alumni medal; seven sing in the St. James Choir, and two are reporters on the Round- Up staff. From the above it appears that our class has many commendable traits. In addition to these we should like to mention that in the battalion the Major, three Lieutenants, four Sergeants, and one Cor- poral are Freshmen. If we were to reason forward, basing our conclusions upon the short but eventful past, our assertions would seem incredible. But this our natural spirit of meekness and modesty forbids. . nd even the events here recorded are not done in a boastful manner, but with more of the satisfaction of knowing that we have made ourselves useful. 38 The Yells ( With all due apologies to the Hear the loud and ringing yells. Freshmen yells. What a world of confidence their clamoring foretells! In the thickest of the fight. How the Juniors shake with fright At the earnest awe-inspiring tone. For the only sound that floats From the Juniors ' trembling throats Is a groan. Too much terrified to speak They can only squeak, squeak Out of tune, In a clamorous appealing to the crowd In a mad expostulation with the able judges proud. Squeaking higher, higher, higher With a desperate desire shade of Edgar Allen Poe.) And a resolute endeavor Now — now to debate or never. Dreading the decision coming soon. Oh, the yells, yells, yells, And the victory it foretells. How the Freshies clap and roar. What a racket they outpour! Yet the ear distinctly tells In the wrangling And the jangling How the danger sinks and swells By the sinking and the swelling in the volume Of the yells. Of the yells. Of the yells, yells, yells, yells, yells, yells — In the clamor and the volume of the yells.

ITcnrv, ' 08. Class ot Naughty-Five !fi It is not very difficult to decide as to the most striking thing that happened during the college year of ' 05. It happened in the coming to this institution of Dr. J. R. Macarthur. It did not take him long to size up the lay of the land and then he took hold of us with both hands. Most of us had been in off the range a few years, but there still remained an occasional cocklebur to remove from our hair. This he did in such a gentle and insinuating manner that it is doubtful whether any of us was aware of what was going on, until, indeed, he gave us a parting stroke or two and started in on the rest of the round-up, who, having been caught more or less recently, needed rough points smoothed down here and there. In the seven years of Dr. Macarthur ' s stay here he has passed through his hands a large number of young fellows, but the Class of ' 05 was the first to graduate after his influence began. The preceding class were all too old and hardened to get much out of the year they had under him. so ours was the first to be really benefitted. His influence out of the class-room was, if possible, even more potent than in it. Being a man of many interests, there was hardly a thing that he was not concerned in, and he became therefore to his student friends, companion and professor. To many of us he was a model, ideal and standard of scholar, man and truth ; and there are not a few, certainly, who before deciding upon an act have considered what the Doctor would have done under the circumstances. If we were in doubt on any subject, how easv it was to get him to analyze it for us and afterwards to wonder why it should suddenly have become so clear. Nor did his influence and interest in one cease with removal from residence at the College, but thev have followed us to remote regions or wherever we happened to be. In this territory, naturallv. his pres- tige is greatest; and it is safe to say that there is hardly a town or hamlet in it that does not include at least one who with upmost sincerity loves and revere. Dr. Macarthur.— Harry H. Schutz, 05. 43 As Others See Us ifi Whoa, Pegasus! — he will not wait; He sniffs afar Ahimni lore. And so, to strike the proper gait, We ' ll start with Class of Ninety-four. They ' re making hay from dawn till late, With bank-notes laid in store. Of Xiiiely-five, and Six, and Seven, Not much. I ' m sure, we know- Some rest on earth, some rest in heaven, Some few in Mexico. But Ninety-eight and Ninety-nine, And Double-naught, I ' d have you know, Pan out some stuff that ' s superfine — Some cocks that cackle, some that crow! Where ' er their radiant faces shine Two l)lades for one will grow. Naught-one comes next, and then Naught-two; A likely company these; You ' ll find their names in next Who ' s Who. They surely take the cheese. Now Nineteen-three and Nineteen-four — How few, how pale, how gaunt the men ! Hats off! — ' tis here the women score — Me fails the feeble pen. But hist ! those men ! the three can roar I ' ntil you ' d think them ten. A shadow passes as write. Class Nineteen-five draws near; I call the roll — with broken might But four gives answer, Here!

What hatch there ' ll be, or how, or when, ho ' s wise enough to tell? My First Night in Old " Klondyke " }£ How well 1 remember my first night at the old club house, alwaj ' s known as " Kloiidyke ! ' ' Yes, I had that middle south room in the main building, and all day long one Saturday. I busied my- self moving in. hanging pictures, etc. No one seemeil to notice me, especially, and I wondered if I should make many friends among the boys. Study hour began at eight o ' clock, and even before that time T had settled down quietly and alone and begun trying to get the mysteries of algebra out of the book and into my head. All was quiet and serene until about nine when I heard a gentle rap on my door. I opened it. and in stalked Will Pelphrey and two of his " pals " and seated themselves as though they had come to stay. A moment later came another knock on my door. I again opened it and welcomed George Dissinger and " Farmer John. " " I say, " said George Dissinger, " been fixing her up some, haven ' t j ' ou? Gee, that ' s a swell picture you ' ve got there! " and crossing the room he calmly stepped up onto the middle of my bed to examine the picture more closely. Knowing that he was no idiot with unlimited privileges. I requested him to get 45 oflF my bed with his feet. " All right, in a minute. " he said. At this stage of the game, Pelphrey leaned over and blew out the light, and immediately ran out uf the room. Having a match in m} ' jxicket, 1 struck it at once, but to my surprise, there was no lamp in sight. " Pelphrey ' s got your lamp, " said ' Farm- er John, ' you ' d better go after him. " I thought it a good idea, so I gave chase to Pelplirey and the lamp. He had a good start uf me and after chasing him away ofi through the brush and down past the horse sheds, I gave u]) the chase and returned to my room. .As I entered the room, 1 struck another match, and there, to my still greater surprise, a work of magic had taken place ; cot, trunk, table, chairs were gone — nothing remained of my eartlily goods save the pictures on the wall. After a few seconds of bewilderment, I realized how cleverly I had been tricked into chasing the boy with the lamp, while those left in the room, together with many others who lurked in the darkness near- by, had done the work. What to do? That was the question. I walked to the door and listened — not a sound save half stifled chuckles which emanated from every nearby room, thus making it evident that my cheerful callers were not alone in the plut. Half a minute later I heard a boy run lightly from tlie brush and slip into the second house south of my door. I knew, of course, that he was just returning from a trip to the sage brush to deposit some of my belongings; so taking this small clue, I set out in quest of my furniture. Some ten steps from the door I stumbled onto my trunk, which, being quite heavy, had not been taken far. Behind the bath house I found two chairs, and upon lighting a match to make sure they were my prop- erty, I espied the corner of a blanket hanging from the roof. It was luck to find my bed so soon, and mounting one of the chairs, I pulled it down and took it to my room. Returning a moment later with a chair in each hand, I caught another young rascal just in the act of getting nft witli it again. He " made tracks " as if for his life, altliough I would never have dared chase him, unless I could have taken my bed and chairs with me. " Now, " said 1 to myself, " I have this bedding, and about the only way I see to keep it is to sleep in it, " so I spread it down on the floor and went to bed, leaving the rest of the search until kindly daylight should come to my aid. The second night — oh that midnight feast! When the boys came tiptoeing in about twelve-thirty laden with cake, cookies, pics and two big pans of milk from the " Klondyke " cellar to coax away my grudge of the night before, my toast was, " Life hath its compensations, even among these ' Klon- dykers. ' " Methinks I hear one C. L. Post jieave a mighty sigh as he reads these lines. — O. R. Metcalfe. 0,3. 46 The Pioneer Oration delivered by Rupert L. Stewart at tlie Territorial Inter-collegiate, oratorical contest, at Roswell, N. M. Every American whose love of country has made liim dwell with kindling imagination on her early Tiistory can echo James Kirk Paulding ' s — " I hear the angry ocean rave, " I see tlie train of exiles stand, I see the lonely little bark Amid the desert, desolate. Scudding along the crested wave. The fathers of my native land, Freighted .... with the forefathers of anotlier world. The daring pioneers of fate, W ho braved the perils of the sea and earth. And gave a boundless empire birth. " But does every such loyal American realize the part that " daring pioneers " have ever since had in making that empire " boundless, " in making the word " empire " so gloriously true? What has caused our nation in 300 years to spread from the Atlantic to the Pacific and froin I ' lorida to Alaska? What has made us the nation we are today? What but the continuation of that spirit which brought the cavalier in 1607 to Virginia and the pilgrims in 1620 to the bleak coast of Massachusetts. The same spirit of enterprise which made our forefathers leave their European homes to explore and settle new lands survives in us. Those seafaring Germanic ancestors of theirs and ours, who spent their lives conquering the waves of stormy northern seas and exjdoring unknown lands could hardly have had other descendants. This new country offered such a field in w-hich tn satisfy this craving for new enterprise that it in- creased and now stands out as the great American characteristic. In the heart of every true American there exists a longing to discover, conquer, or reclaim something. This longing for the untried, this search after the unknown, has been again and again exemplified. Henry Hudson endured hardships that sev- eral times came near costing him his life, but in doing so he discovered and explored the majestic bay and beautiful river that bear his name, the river at whose mouth ships from all the countries of the world gather to unload their cargoes. Daniel lioonc pushed mit into new fields on wliicli no white man had ever before set foot. Lewis and Clark explored the land which we now speak of as the Louisiana Purcliase. With a little band of followers the two started up the Missouri river; they went as far as possible by boat, then |)rocured liorses from tlic Indians and traveled over mountains, tlirough deserts and prairies, 47 sonietiines almost dying of starvation and thirst and living constantly in fear of the barbarous Indians. For what? Xot for money, not for lionor, but merely to satisfj- that passion for enterprise. This expe- dition not only enlightened the people as to the wealth of the Louisiana Purchase, but it gave the United States a claim on the fertile country of Oregon. The bold, fearless and adventurous do not stop when all tlic land in our great country has been ex- plored. They press out into new fields. The annexation of Alaska and of the Philippines, the reclaiming of the arid regions of the great Southwest, and just now, after years of labor and suflering, the disccivery of the long searched for North Pole — these are examples of what the pioneer spirit is capable of doing. We Westerners should look with a feeling of profound gratitude to our predecessors who blazed the trail and carried the star of empire westward. They have put the rough outline on the canvas and we are now filling it in. They have made the West what she is toda} ' — and at what a cost ! In those days rail- roads were unknown; when people went West they traveled with horses or oxen. Picture a small party making a brave start; see them bidding their friends farewell; see the large covered wagon with four fat horses disappearing in the distance. See them months later lost on the plains, not four fat horses, but three poor ones; see the father walk beside the wagon to lessen the load, see the look of agony on the poor mother ' s face as her children cry for water. But look, a band of savage Indians gallop up, a fight follows, and all the pioneers are killed and their bodies are left to be gnawed by the wild coyote or to be picked by the buzzard. How often now we come to a pile of bleaching bones and know that they are all that re- mains of some such ill fated expedition into the West. Every true Westerner loves this great and glorious West of ours, but we should often stop to think to whom we owe it. The people who pushed out into the wilderness of the Northwest, the West, and the Southwest, and carried the stars and stripes — these are they to whom we owe our homes! The spirit of the pioneer is still in us. No longer, cry our poets, does — No longer does he, " He, rude of garb and strong of frame, " Bronzed, haggard, lasli toward the West " Go swinging his echoing axe. Following the Amid the sea like solitude, " Trail as it wound through scarred hills, down canyons To tame the soil and plant the art, lone. Where nature ' s wildest genius reigns. " Where wild things screamed, with winds for company ; Its mile-stones were the bones of pioneers. " Now that all these things are no more, now that all the land has been explored, are we contented? Has that spirit of enterprise died? Xo, we could not be contented if we tried; and we do not trv! In 48 our very bones is that spirit which cannot be satisfied except by conquest of the new, so still we press on and on. ■ ' Today the steam-god thunders tiirough the West; At the magic touch of water, blooms the wilderness. " Today new fields arc being entered, new resources are being utilized, waterways are being improved, forest reserves are being instituted, reservoirs and canals are being built, and not only all our natural re- sources, but our niainifactures are being still more vigorously developed. Greater still, the very air is being made to serve as a highway for travel and the far off stars and planets in the fiery firmament are made to yield their long-kept secrets. But no longer the pioneer spirit finds its only outlet in conquering merely these physical conditions. It has not shrunk from still greater tasks. Instead of the perils of the West, there rise before the nation the perils of jiolitical corruption, of social wrong. The spirit of the pioneer speaks through Judge Lindsey of Denver, and juvenile courts rise to shield the young. It speaks through others and there are scientific investigations for the protection of mankind against unhealthful foods; e.xperiments on the plants of the desert, which promise to remove its curse of barrenness. Surely then we should place the pioneer at the head of our column of heroes. He has brought order out of chaos; he has settled the Northwest, the W ' est and the Southwest; he has redeemed millions of acres of land from the wilderness: he has added stars to our flag; he has attained the greatest success in manufacture; he has brought laurels to lay at the feet of his mother country, and he has caused the Amer- ican nation to be crowned the greatest nation in the world. At the foot of a bridge over the Concord River stands Daniel Chester French ' s statue of the " Minute Man. " On the pedestal are the commemorative words: " Here once the embattled farmers stood. And fired the shot heard round the world. " This figure, standing with musket firmly grasped, gazing over the fields, is alert, courageous, and maj-be even a little defiant. It serves well to keep fresh the memory of our forefathers whose gallant fight began our existence as a nation. In Lincoln Park. Chicago, towering high among the beautiful trees, stand St. Gauden ' s great statue of Abraham Lincoln. The whole figure expresses pity for the oppressed, sorrow that brother should fight brother, but firm determination that the Union shall stand " now and forever one and inseparable. " Along the old Santa Fe trail into the great West nearly a hundred simple stones mark the heroic progress of the pioneer. New Mexico, through its Legislature, has taken the initial step to erect an arch 49 at the end of tliat fanunis trail. Instead of an arch, wliy should not Loiado Taft be commissioned to carve a great figure, with rifle thrown across his shoulder, with glance turned back over the miles of desert he has crossed, but, with face and gesture suggesting that there are more worlds to conquer? Xew Mexico has a great ojjixjrtunity to do for coming generations what little Concord did for a long past one, what Chicago has done for a more recent one. As we add our star to the flag, why not add a tribute to the men who have given us a state! Why not raise a great statue at the end of the Santa Fe trail, to The Pioneer ! ■TglMI SO The ' 09 Stenographers OFFICERS. President ----------- Kirkpatrick I ' ice President --------- Pattison, T.

This class was started on the 8th of September, 1908, by Professor Eugene George Lane of the B. G., -etc., retired, with an enrollment of twenty-six. Everything went well until after the first semester tests, when thirteen of the class were found to be sorely in need of a competent stenographer to take care of their exams. Lacking this they disappeared from the ranks. The remaining number seemed to have been pointed out as an unlucky crowd by the " Goddess of Thirteen. " for the term ended witli imly eight of the thirteeen answering to their names. On the first Monday in September, 1909, Professor again took his roll hook in hand, but with some difficulty, for he was on crutches, as he had broken some of his toes while playing " Jumping George " from his office window to the pavement. The following answered present: Miss Horton, Mr. Kirkpatrick, Miss Mayberry, Mr. Pattison, Miss Sheppard and Mr. Wilson. The ones still absent being: Miss Ander- son, Mr. Beach, Mr. Bratton, Mr. Carroll, Mr. Dessauer, Mr. Dunn, Mrs. Deemer, Miss Deemer, Mr. Danos, Mr. Goebel, Mr. Gilliam, Mr. Henry, Mr. Lane, Mr. Noyer, Mr. Roberts. Mr. Rabb, Mr. Stamper, Mrs. Thomas, Miss Thomas and Mr. Taylor. Work was started at a good clip and the little class of six seemed to bear up under the burdens very well for the first semester, but the Goddess soon began working her charms after the holidays, and every- thing went wrong for about two months; then the sturdy little band of " word sign artists " threw oflF the charms of the enchantress and finished with colors of Orange and Black flying high and the motto.

" The Stenography Class of igio gathered together in the class room on the first day of school, each face bearing a look of determination to live up to our ni iltci of " Do or Die. " However, that look soon changed to one of sadness when we learned tJiat our dearly beloved Professor Lain, wlio had tried to scale the rough stone wall to his office window, Jiaving no practice in l)reaking into windows, had fallen and. land- ing on the hard basement below, had sustained some serious injuries. On account of this accident we had no classes the first few days, " hen he did return, he returned mi crutches and desperately in love with a certain fair one at Hotel Dieu. The class studied short-hand with a vim the first few days, and tiiinking to rest our poor liewildered brains, we prepared a surprise for our Professor. We were ratiier late in getting things together so that Professor, thinking that we were not coming to class, sent out in search for us. At last he gave it up and came back to his class room, and — well you could have sliced his eye-balls out witli a " rip saw " and never scratched his eye-lids, for there before him the tables were covered with clean taljle linen, and the tables themselves were trembling with a load of good things to eat. ( )n Professor ' s Ie k was tiie large Punch Bowl filled to the brim with sparkling Punch " This doesn ' t look like short-hand tcj me. " said Professor, and immediately made liis wa} ' to the punch bowl. It is a mystery to this day what was in that punch, but we do know tiiis that there are only four electric lights in the class room and after drinking a certain amount of that good old jmnch Professors Lain and Wilcox were heard to say that they knew that there were eight. Bob of course made a pig of himself and at the end of the hour had to be carried out of the mom on a stretcher. It was then that Professor Lain was heard to .say, " 1 go to Hotel Dieu. Oh, you lair one! " 54 Time for the examinations rolled around too soon, but we were determined to stick to our motto; this we did, for when we found our grades, most of had " died. " But how could we have expected to pass? Honestly, there wasn ' t a single question in the whole examination that asked anything about " how the punch was mixed. " " Who mixed it, " etc. There was one redeeming trait of the class, however, and tliat was that each member of the class had either a good or bad characteristic. Now there was Josephine. She was so sweet tempered, was never known to get angry in class, and she just dearly loved Professor. Laura had a way of " heart smashing " that was not looked upon as a joke by many of the fellows. Ruth, well she did worse than any of us, " she just up and got married. " Anna didn ' t like our company and left us. Maybe she is going to get married too, who knows? Serena completely won the heart of the " Hupmobile " man. Robert persisted till he passed the first year course. Walter, known as the bright man of the class, was seen in cluircli " on " Sunday night. " Red " Lain and " Cheesy " Fullerton were the two Ijest football jilayers on the team. " Red " said that the only man who had ever gotten through him in a game was Max, the bugler of Company C. Calderon and Gueterriez hailed from Mexico and. excepting Walter, were the smartest ones in the class. Archie, poor boy, was never known to smile. We hope to see all of us again next vear. 66 Spanish Stenographers PkaKI. M.WliKRRY Luis F. Gceterrif.z L. A.

For an organiza- tion coming together by chance, it was very well balanced, consisting as it did of four cornets, three trom- bones, three altos, clarinet, baritone, tuba and drums. The weak spot was to be found in the wood wind. By the coming of some new players and a good leader, Mr. Mueller, the band was considerably strength- ened over that of last year. It was not long before it was enabled to add considerably to the military maneuvers. There have been two or three executors on the bass drum, all of whom had a different time to " Yankee Doodle, " which was played for double time, and as a consequence " the boys in brown " have wavered between doing their duty and making a grand rush for the band to avenge their outraged sense of time. However, they always hajipened to see George Quesenberry. who was Drum Major with the " Big Stick, " and prudently refrained from attack. Especially was this the case after lie donned the two and a half foot hat, which, added to his six foot six stature, proved an impressive spectacle indeed. The effect of this hat on the Band was magical. There were no more jjaltry excuses to get out of drill on the part of the players. They were all there to a man, and tooted so lustily that the large plume on George ' s " Teddy Bear " always inclined from them. Many distinguished persons had the privilege of listening to the Band this year. Among them we might mention Go ernor Currie of New Mexico and President Taft, both of whom seemed to be distinctl) ' impressed. The band is living in expectation of an invitation to play in the White House grounds this coming summer. The members (if tliis most prominent College organiza- tion are : CORNETS.

It Ijcgan with thirteen members and was unlucky during the whole year. The fad that its membership increased later in the year did not seem to remove the hoodoo from it. Vs long as they confined their efforts to waltzes and two-steps progress was evident, and at the weekly musical assembly tiiey were vociferously encored by the student body. But when they tackled " Carmen, " " Red Mill, ' ' " Bohemian Girl, " and so forth, the audience maintained a discreet silence, fearing they would cause more anguish than was neces- sary to the shades of the late lamented composers. The effect on Mr. Miller was disastrous indeed. When the year was three-fourths over and after he had taken unto himself a wife he departed for parts unknown. As this goes to press we know not what the future of the orchestra will be. The members of this galaxy of stars are as follows : VIOLINS. Mr. Miller, Mlss M. c. rthur and Mrs. Greek. CLARINETS.

As a result a College Quartette was organized to show them how to do it. Despite the fact that this quartette, running the gauntlet of four hundred eyes every week, opened their mouths to the widest extent and sang until their faces were red and the dew of perspiration bespangled their brows, and expected the audience to follow their example, they were doomed to disappointment. The audience opened its mouth as one man, but not to sing. Verily even the jassonkey has a sense of music, but evidently the student body of the N. M. A. C. is not as much favored as its confrere. However, the quartette feels amply rewarded in having this write-up and its picture in the Swastika. Their pleasant faces may be seen above.

The line-up of the team of ' 09: Windsor. Hall, Kirkpatrick, Kays, Danos, Xoyer, Howard. Henry. Beckwith, Jennings and Thomas. Xine of the eleven games played were won. The games that were lost were with professional teams. The only inter-collegiate games worthy of note were with the School of Mines.

' ' as is their custom, exerted themselves to show the College team a good time, and succeeded. The game the College played against the .All)uquerque High .School was the best of the season. The High School fellows were good sportsmen. A great deal of credit should go to Victor Kays for coaching and managing the team, while he was very busy with other things. There is no remuneration for this work. " Vic " worked hard and his ser- vices were ajipreciated by the baseball team and the College as a whole. The men wdio made trips and were not awarded a letter were: Mayer, jilain. Miller and Rivera. Batting and fielding average: Windsor was the new man who attracted the most attention. He fielded his position well, was good on bases, used his head, and batted in second place. Hall was a valuable man. His work would have been much better had he not been stale from going through the football and Ijaskctball seasons. 71 Kirkpatrick was the best bunter. He could get away fast and was good on bases. Bert Kays (Wounded Wing) was handicapped by having a bad arm. Bert was classed as the heavy hitter. Danos was the man who turned up when he was needed. He was a fast infielder with much experi- ence. Noyer was out of luck. He hit the ball hard on a line, but could not make the hit clean. Noyer ' s out- field game against the A. H. S. was pretty. Howard played his usual consistent game. He was the captain and was always there with a word of cheer. Henry did not start until late in the year. He played an excellent game at third and his hatting average increased during the season. Beckwith pitched what should have been a winning game against the Grays. His hitting was good. Jennings improved as the season advanced. His game against the Albuquerque High School was well pitched. Thomas hit in first place, getting in the four hundred class. The season of ' 09 was a success. The baseball men have always been very congenial with each other. The season this year is looked forward to with eagerness. Batting Average Players. ] X o. Games. Po.sition. A. B. Runs. Hits. -Average.

Much interest was shown from the lieqinninc:. and. altlioutjh only three of the emblem men were out — Floyd, H. Hall and Howard — there were most of last year ' s second team and some six or eight new men. The pros- pects were not ery encouraging- ; but all went to work with a will. The spirit shown by every one was certainly commendable, and Captain Floyd ' s never-tiring efiforts gave evidence that the team would be a win- ning one, if work and practice could make it that. The absence of a coach made it still more discouraging and it seemed that none could be had. Mr. Pollard, the industrial secretary for the Y. M. C. A. in Arizona, New Mexico and West Te.xas, was considered: but for some reason he was not secured. Finallv, Dr. Squires, a Cornell man, and an end on that team, consented to coach. He was a memijer of the College facultv. and conseciuently took a great interest in the boys. His coming worked wonders with the players and seemed to fill them with the greatest confidence for a championship season. His call for n-iorc men was respond- ed to by a large number of the students who had not hitherto l)een seen on the fieUl. Practice began in earnest with some thirty-five men trying for the team. Tile first game nf the season was played with the Fl I ' aso Military Institute (Hi the College grounds on October Qth. It was good exhibition of early season football. The teams were nbout evenly matched, as shown by the fact that neither side scored ; but the Institute had a little the advantage in weight, speed and experience. Their back field were men who had played much football and understood the game : " •bile ours were altogether new men. The College offense was good ; but occas- ionally an El Paso back got through. Had the game been played under inter- collegiate rules, the College would un- doubtedlv have won b - a safe score. As it was, three of the Institute play- ers were instructors at the Academy. 75 However, the team made an excellent sliowing, considering the fact that nearly all were inexperienced, and their opponents were veteran foot- ball players, some of them having played in large schools in the East. The second game was played at El Paso with the University of Ari- zona on November 6th. This game was the beginning of a new era in the football history of the College. It was the first interstate game play- ed with a large institution. Little was known of the Arizona team; but from reports it was thought to be a strong one, and all were looking forward to an exciting contest. Nearly all the students and a large number of the faculty went down on the special train which had been secured for the occasion. They were determined that the College should win and show that we were ei|ual tu any team in the southwest. The game began about i p. ni. The field was heavy, having been plowed the day before and draggeii oft. The College defended the south goal, and Arizona kicked off. The first kick was received by Floyd ; and after two short gains and an incomplete forward pass, the ball went to Arizona University on the College thirty-yard line After two unsuccessful attempts to gain through the line Arizona tried a drop kick and put the ball between the goal posts, thus net- ting them three points. The College now kicked to Arizona, who soon punted out of danger. The College made two good gains around the end, and through the line, followed by forward passes that netted T four and ten yards. We were now witliin striking distance of the Captain Floyd Arizona goal, but lost the ball on an incomplete forward pass. .Arizona imniediately punted out of danger, and the College, penalized for being ofT side, punted back. ArizDua made a successful forward pass, gaining ten yards. The ball was now on our ten-yard line, and Arizona tried in vain for a touch-down. ' Our line held the two terrific smashes of their heavy backs, and they tried the drop kick again success- fully. The score was now six to nothing in favor of Arizona. In the third plav, after kicking ofT, the College got the ball on .Arizona ' s twenty-five-yard line, but lost it again and .Arizona punted. In the ex- change of punts which followed .Arizona made the longest run of the game, returning the ball twenty yards. During the remainder of the half the playing was mostly in the middle of the field, neither goal being in danger. In the second half the teams seemed to be more e venly matcned, neither side being able to gain on straight plays; and the playing was open and spectacular. The College used the forward pass with the 77 greatest success. Most f f our i)asses were successful, some of them gaining as much as twenty-five yards. Once more Arizona got inside the ten-yard line and again failed to go through our line lor a touch-down. The drop kick was again tried, l)ul was unsuccessful. Line plays, fakes, end runs, (|uarter-back runs, forward passes, were reiieatedly tried by l)oth sides; hut the ball was kept ou t of danger until .Arizona got It on tlie College fifteen-yard line with three ])lays in which to put it over. But the three terrific line plunges they made gained but five yards, and as the ball changed sides, the referee ' s whistle blew an- nouncing the end of the game. Of course, we were disappointed, but we demonstrated beyond a doubt that we were in their class; and liad it not been for .Arizona ' s drop kicker, the .score would probably have been notiiing to nothing. 1 ' lic team was finding itself and returned home confident that a better showing would be made against the ew Mexico teams. Such was the case. Just a week after the .Arizona game, the Miners came down prepared to give us one of the worst drubbings we ever had received. That was really their intention. They were just as confident that they were going to win that game as they were that they would be alive the ne.xt day. liut they were sadly disappointed. The next day they started home with the tail end of a nineteen to nothing score in their possession. Our hoi)es were revived more than ever now, and when the team started for Roswcll just before Thanksgiving, we were almost sure of victory. J ' .ut the long trip over there, together with the loss of sleep on the way, the long tiresome trip of a hundred and ten miles by auto- mobile and the fact that we were playing away from home on a new field, brought us a very bad defeat. .Some of the boys were sick ; and Howard and Hall were hurt so badly at the beginning of the game that they had to be taken out. The College team stuck together, however, and fought doggedly and more than once were within striking distance of Roswell ' s goal. But it seemed that the fates were against us, and when the game ended the score was thirty-four to nothing in N. M. M. I ' s favor. The game was free from squabbles and clean playing was characteristic. After the game we had our Thanksgiving turkey, and were treated like royal guests. The cadets, occasionally remarking about their good treatment at the hands of the College the year before, vied with one another in making us welcome. Cuacli Sq.iirc:i 78 The next and last game was with our worst rivals, and the championship team of the preceding year — the Varsity. It was played on December the fourth at Albuquerque, although it was scheduled for an earlier date ; but some misunderstanding came up and the game was postponed. Had it been played according to schedule, the score would undoubtedly have been different. The score, lifty-one to nothing, was the largest one ever piled up against the C(jllege. But the score does not tell tlie story. The team was .strengthened by Redding playing at full back; but Howard and Hall were hardly in condition to play and both had to be taken out in the i ' lrst half. The game began with the University kicking off. Redding caught the ball and made a thirty-yard return. The College team started in by playing the Varsity off their feet and it began to look like a sure victory for the Farmers. The ' arsity rooters looked on in dumb amazement as the College team made gain after gain both through the line and by forward passes. During the first fifteen minutes the game was all for the College and the ' arsity was helpless. Three times the Varsitv goal was in danger before the ball was taken from their territory; but some unfortunate thing would always happen each time a touch-down seemed imminent, and the Varsity would des- perately punt out of danger. But all this changed when the arsity from deep in tiicir territory executed a long forward pass that result- ed in a touch-down. From this on the forward pass was used almost exclusively l)y the ' arsity. The College could not solve it and the score piled up. A touch-down was made by the College on a forward pass to Carlisle, but was overruled because Kirk was alleged to have stepped out of bounds in passing tlie ball T-uck seemed to be against us. A drop kick by Redding missed the goal by two inches, and a place kick hit the goal post and bound- ed the wrong way. Our team never gave up, but fought to the last with a persistence that was commendable. When the game ended and we realized that we were beaten, there was one consolation. We had done our best. The spirit of the team was manifested when one of the College players said, " ' e ' ll beat them next year. " We lost the championship and we were beaten worse than ever before. But let it be remembered that nearly all the team were new men ; that all the important games were played away from home : and that the long trips were partlv responsible for our losses. We need more bovs here from whom we mav choose a greater variety of material. A ' e need to train con- scientiously for the work. Great credit is due to Dr. Squires, who rlid excellently with the material available and in the limited time at his disposal. But the Collesre needs a coach, a physical director, a regular member of its facultv, whose whole business sliall be the care of athletics in the school, and who can give the team the atten- tion which is absolutely require.l to make it what it sliouM be. When we have these, football will again be suc- cessful and we may look for the return of our lost laurels. 79 The line-up of the team this year was as follows : Ends — Hall, Wilson, Carlysle. Tackles — Rrownlee, Roseborougli, Merrill (Manager). Guards — Smith, Quesenberry, Lain. Center — Howard. Quarterback — Floyd (Captain). Halfbacks — Kirkpatrick, Samson. Fullback — Fullerton. The second team this year was one of the best and grittiest second teams that the College has had in a good while. Although the season was rather dull for them, they kept at work and gave the first team their practice. Only one game was scheduled for them. This was with the El Paso High School. It was a bitterly contested game, and the score was five to five. . t one time the El Paso High School had the ball within one foot of the goal, but couldn ' t get it over. This was characteristic of tlic second team. They would often brace up at a crucial point and prevent the first team from scoring on them. There is some good material in it that should show well next year. Lyons, Harrison, Rlaine, Boat and Haggart deserve mention. Next year we hope to have a number of games for the second teim. a thing which will afford a stimulus tn tliein, and a scrub team is indis- pensable to a successful College team. Their line-up was as follows: End.s — Windsor. lioat. Tackles — Goddanl, Talavera. Guards — Parks, Dillon. Center — Adams, AfcDougal. Quarterback — Haggart. Halfback,s — Plain, Harrison. Fullback — Lyons. .C. A «i«fV ' The 1909 Track Season The track season of 1909 started with bright prospects, so far as the number of meets was concerned. When the trackmen first started training it was with the expecta tion of a meet with the I ' niversity and also a federation meet in El Paso. But the University withdrew and it was found that the meet in El Paso was open only to members of the Amateur Athletic Union, which association the College Athletic Board thought it best not to join, ■ith only the local field day in view, enthusiasm waned. Everything seemed to conspire against a successful meet. The wind blew a good deal longer and more fre- quently than usual, and that is saying not a little. It is almost impossible to do anything in a New Mexico wind storm. The Athletic Association was so much in debt that little could be done to repair the bad condi- tion of the track. Baseball kept many good men from entering. The men, with the exception of Captain Alle- man and Manager Russell, were all new to track work, and above all, there was no coach. .Mleman was heavilv handicapped by being imable to train until nearly six o ' clock. If it had not been for this he would probably have broken the record for the pole vault, as he had gone 9 ft. 6 inches the year before. The weather on the critical day was ideal and contributed to the breaking of two records : Bert Kays put the twelve pound shot 43 ft. 254 inches, as against a previous record of 43 ft. 1 3 inch; Rolla Russell ran the half mile in 2 minutes, 17 1 3 seconds, breaking the old record of 2 minutes, 18 2 5 seconds. Manager Russell successfully handled the business of the meet and much credit is due him that there was one at all. Following is a summary of the events : 100 yard dash — Coe. ist: Harrison. 2nd: Russell. 3rd. Time — 10 4 5 seconds. 220 vard dash — Coe, Tst ; Russell. 2nd ; Harrison, 3rd.

They have played fiNe matched jjaines and in all have come out victorious. They are entitled to the Kew .Mexico championship, since for the second consecutive year, the University girls Kam lias failed to agree to any date offered them. The schedule began with the Mesa Scliool game, which was played at the College P _ m lladley Hall, on Dec. 4th; the College girls winning by tiiirty-si.x to live, the most B ikcisive victory of the season. The next game, on Dec. nth, was jjlayed here with the K I ' aso High School. In this game the College team came near meeting its " Waterloo. ' " W hen time was called the score was tied. By a lucky play off, a foul throw by C(5llege made the winning goal in the ne.xt five minutes of play — score 26 to _ ' 4. t3n Jan. 15th. a return game was plav ' d with the Higii School in the Y. M. C. . . in 1 21 Paso, and for a second time this year, the High School lost to our girls, I ' y a score of 5 to 13. The longest trip of this year was to Silver City, where the College played on Jan. 29tli. ()n a very slippery Hoor the girls defeated the Normal 14 to II. The return game with the Normal, pla}ed on the College floor on Feb. 5th, closed the season. This score was 17 to 14 in favor of the College. Practice commenced the first of October under the able instruction of Coach .Mitchell. . .squad ui girls, large enough for two teams, was out for nearly every practice. Miss Inez Buvens, chosen last year as captain for this season, was compelled to give u]) basketball on account of other duties, so Lena Smith was elected to fill the place. Captain Smith has ])layed four years, having led tiie team once before. Although her position had pre- viously been at center, yet by her heady and accurate game, she starred at forward. To her credit are 66 of the total 106 points which the College scored this year. Audie Crist, forward, played a rapid and brilliant game. Her ability to secure the ball in any part of the forwards ' field contributed greatly to the success of the team. Her Iiigli reputation of previous years as a goal thrower was also maintained. Mabel Hager played two games as center guard where she did creditable work, but at the shift the first 84 C aptain Sirntii of January, she was changed to the more responsible position of jumping center. This is the first year at the game and the fact tliat she mitplayed opponents of experience shows s])k ' n(Hd (|uah ' t - and unusual skill at the game. Ruth Phelps distinguished herself the last three games as center guard. She, too, was new at the game, hut she rapidly became a fast and clever player, and won much approval. Alice Sheppard for the first two games was a guard. Slie was a good player, deliberate and steady, hav- ing previously known tlie game, but extra work forced licr to drop out at the end of the first semester. Ella Pohl. who succeeded ATiss .Sheppard as guard. i)Iaycfl her first two games at jumping center. Her guarding was good and close, but as open as liad been her game at center, so that she was considered verv valuable to the team. Ruth Brainard. who had played before, held a i)osition at guard ihroughout the season. The other mem- bers of the team honored her by unanimously electing her Captain for the coming year. The substitutes. Mildred Hookland, Ethel .Shearer and Josephine Hull, although never having a chance to play in a match game, showed up well in jj racticc. Emm them and the rest of the s{|uad, manv things are expected for the season of 1910-11. 85 Champions of 1909-10 Boys ' Basketball The basketball season of ' 09 and ' 10 has been characterized by a consider- able number of ups and downs. The slick-to-it-iveness of the men and the pre- vailing good spirit between them, however, has brought the score of games to three won and three lost. The team is at present practicing hard in hopes of carrying of¥ honors at the basketball tournament to be held in El Paso, March 1 8th and 19th, under the auspices of the Southwestern Federation. Owing to a mishap in the schedule, the strongest rival was met first, and on January 21 the team played the El Paso Y. M. C. A. in Hadley Hall and were defeated by a score of 40 to 26. A tie game was played later in El Paso but the Y. M. C. A. team won the ' vantage by 24 to 22. Two games were played with the El Paso High School, and the College lost the first game on the home floor, but succeeded in defeating the High School boys in the El Paso Y. M. C. A. " gym " the following night after an exceed- ingly hard and e.xciting game. The El Paso Military Institute developed a good team this year and the A. and M. succeeded in winning two straight games from them. The tournament that is to be held in El Paso by the Southwestern Fed- eration comprises the following teams : Jaurez State Academy, of Colonia Jaurez, Mexico; Bisbee High School; El Paso High School; El Paso Military Institute; El Paso Y. M. C. A. ; and N. M. A. C. Some lively basketball will be played and the championship of the Southwest at last decided. The men who have earned emblems this year are : John Blain. . rner Eede, Leonard Thomas, John Haggart and Paul Mayer. Haggart and Eede played the forwards; Thomas, center; Blain and Mayer, The scores for the season are as follows : A. and M. 21 El Paso lilitary Institute 11 A. and M. 30 El Paso Y. M. C.

Board 91 Engineers This department lias (Uic nf the finest equip- ments in the Southwest, liaving all the neces- sary iron and wood workinj, " ' machinerv, in- cluding a modern and cuinpletc line of small tiKils. The work is thorough in electrical and mechanical engineering in general, with special lime given to forging, carpentry, wood-turn- ing, iiattern-making, foundry, hencli work in iron, machine lathe work, boiler, engine, dy- naniii and motor tests, along with various kinds of efficiency tests. The blacksmith shop is ci|uipijed with some of the latest improved down-drift f irges and the nccessar - tools. A flirty horse power l)oiler with its sixty fill it smoke-stack makes known to the sur- rounding country and passing travellers that there is something doing in the engineering line in this vicinity. This boiler furnishes steam for a forty horse-i)iiwer simple non- cdiidcnsing engine and the new two-stage air compressor direct connected to a twenty-eight horse-power com- iwund non-condensing engine. This compressor was purchased in January and was set up on its arrival in Feb- ruary by the Senior mechanical and electrical mistakes. The ]iower ef|uipment also includes one large and two small gasoline engines, an oil engine and a ten horse-pow.-r molnr wliich gets its current from the Las Cruces l)ower ]5lant. The machine and wood lathes number thirteen. The wood and irun i lanes, the drill jiresses, threading ma- chine, shaper and the circular and jig saws enable the .student to get a good idea of the advantages over the old methods of working by hand. The testing laboratory has a cement testing machine, a sixtv thousand pound Olsan testing machine, a Parr coal calorimeter, an (.Jrsat gas analysis apparatus, a steam calorimeter and various electrical testing apparatus. 92 EiiJineers ' Seminar The wood and machine shop work is all done from drawings and models, which enable the instructors to make detailed explanations. This, combined with the lectures and recitations in the class rooms, a complete library, and the up-to-date periodicals for reference, constitute a very systematic course of study. This course of study in the engineering department cannot help but give the students a broad knowledge of the engineer- ing profession. The student cannot only take up the wo rk in electrical and mechanical engineering, but he may also have the opportunity of studying in the civil or irrigation engineering lines. These two departments are rapidly coming to the front. The civil engineering course covers the subjects that are usually taught in a civil en- ineering school, practically the .same as the Massac liusetts Institute of Technology. This department has a most complete line of equipment for all kinds of civil engineering work and, owing to the line climate during the entire school year, excellent opportunity is offered for field work in all its branches. Irrigation engineering is a branch of work in which there will be a great demand for experts, especially in this section of the countrv, where irrigation is the only method l)y which crops can be raised. The work in irrigation, which is a unit in the civil engi- neering course, can be carried out to better advantages here than in most other lo- calities, as ample i)])portunity may be had for practical work. The work is well il- lustrated in this valley and bids fair to become one of the most important and leading lines in the . ' outhwest. There are many more features about llie engineering department that could be ex- pounded, but owing to the fact that the students in this branch of work are so busy along the so-called practical lines of industry, the above inventory will ha e to suffice as a record of the happenings in this unorganized body. 94 Civil Engineers ' Club A. Fraker ----------- President Ed. I.yon --------- I ' ice President G. P. Stockek ---------- Seeretary John ' K. Haggakt --------- Treasurer Civil Engineers ' Club Owing to the fact that some of the best ci il eMj iiueriiit, ' - students that ever touched a transit— and most assuredly two of the best I ' rofcssors — were added to the ranks of the civil eng-ineers, it was decided to start a Civil Engineers ' Club. This is the first movement of the kind for a number of years and ynu may 1)6 sure it was not a dead one. Why there has never been a club of this sort before is not known. I ' robably because there was not a sufficient amount of material — not in the least rcflectini; in tlic ability of the past students. The object of the club is partly like many others, to dexeloj) the lacking and hi hly essential part of the movements of a club, the speaking ability of its meml ers; liut i)rincipally to discuss engineering problems. Much work has not been done this year because the cluli was started late. ( )n the other hand it has a fine start for ne.xt year, ami if as good material is addod next year it will probably be one of the best organi- zations in College. 96 l v. c. Id.NAC .1. W.

RuiMiV .Mi:rrill KxoRR - - - - - - - President - - - - I ice President - Secretary and Treasurer The Agricultural Club was organized in 1905 and like most everything else has had its " ups and downs. " In some cases it seems that there was a iiossibilily of the club going so far in some of its " down " trips that it would reach the vanishing point, and doubtless it would have done so were it not a fact that the club was doing work absolutely necessary for men interested in .Agricultural studies, and was being run by a bunch of " Farmers " with a healthy su])ply of the " stick-to-it-ability " qualilv distinctly characteristic of nearly all men of this title. It encountered some real and stubborn difficulties. One of these was that for a long while the club met only twice a month, ( )f course interest was easily lost between meetings. In addition to this the club was up against the difficulty in securing dates for the meetings, and was also faced with the enhancing one of being compused nf few members. llowe ' er, the cluli did ])ersistentlv fight on and claims success as its goal. The club niiw meets every week on Wednesday evenings and the membership is large. It can now look back ith interest u])on the difficulties overcome and congratulate itself as l eing a wide-awake factor in the agricultural education in the A. M. college of X. M. Also on being the first organized and only acti -e student Agricultural club in ew Me.xico that is managed stricllv b - the students. Of course there are several of the Professors of the Agricultural departments who are active members of the club, but they are " just one of us " , " farmers " too, when they are in the club. The President of the club is a student. 97 Agricultural Club The requirements for membership are that the candidate show interest in the club and try to attend the meetings, so any who are interested in agriculture can become members. The invitations have been ex- tended to Professors and students of other courses to join tlit- club and take part in the programs. The work done by the club this year has been, on the whole, very satisfactory and also very bene- ficial. The chief ends sought are first, to have the students become more familiar with parliamentary rules, so that if called upon in after life to act as chairman of any meeting they may know just how to preside. Then too, there have been many opportunities offered for impromptu speaking and much develop- ment along- this line of work has resulted. Lasting good has also been done by exchanging ideas upon agricultural work of different kinds. In this way the meml)crs have been able to gain valuable information without having to dig it out of a text l)ook. In fad the clul) has tried to keep in touch with all current literature on agriculture. It has also done much to l)ring the agricultural men into close contact with each other and to make new " Farmers " feel more at home when they come to the college. The completing of the new .Agricultural I ' .uilding last ear was a great aid in promoting the interests of the club. A large room on the first tldur in the . " outh end of the ])uiUling has been utilized as a read- ing and club room for the .Agricultural men. Many standard magazines and papers are kept on file. The club has an indivickialliuUetin board in the hall-way of the .Agricultural I ' .uilding, on which the programs are posted, generally as much as two weeks before time, this giving amjile time for prejjaration. To the fact that the club was unable to secure dates when wanted, is due the relatively small number of socials it has given, it did succeed in two efl ' orts for social functions, one being for the members only. and the other a " Husking I ' .ee " for mem1)ers and lady friends. IJoth, however, created more or less interest and the club is looking forward to still greater educational and social doings next year. 99 Current Topics Club The Ciim-nt Topics Club as orfjanizcd for tlie purixisc nf arousing; iiUcii ' sl in puhlio |)fakiiij;- and cleliate. The membership was open to all ni tlu- l-jij lisii department nf Collei;c rank. It was the plan of the society to hold rcj ular fort-nii;htly meetings on l ' " riday evenings, hut later in the year social dates conflicted and the meetings were held whenever a time a ailable could he had. The program consisted of a discussion of from two to four major topics and current e ents hy members of the club. The lirst meeting was held in the library on the evening of Sei)teml)er 31st. The success vi the first meeting and the interest aroused pro ed beyond a doubt that success was assured and the instigators and organizers were well pleased with liie results of their labor.

A quartet was formed to siny for relig ioiis niectiiit s; and a stringed quartet has furnished music for the social side of the work. A piano can he found in llu- building with no end of selections at hand for the voice, piano, violin, etc. Till ' . SOCIAL COMMITTEI-:. I ' . W. .Maver, Chairman. Owing to the fact that very few dates have been left open or availal)le for social functions, with the exception of the first few weeks at the o])ening of school, few social gatherings have been given. During this short time several were held to attract new students to the l)uilding, to promote the best feeling among the students and enable them to become acquainted with each other. Doing these things in this wav is understood to be the best plan for accom|)lishing tilings so inqiortant to the life of a school. TMl " . . THLET1C CO.MMITTEE. S. R. Mitch F.I. I.. Chainiion.

It 5 However, there have been two puncliingf bags installed; about a dozen ]3air.s of " Indian Clubs ' ' are to be found in tlie basement of tlie building; while on the outside nearby are a horizontal bar and parallel bars. Arrangements are now being made by the college for a physical director fur tlie coming year. THE . d 1 ' :rtisixg committee. J. . . Andkk.son, Chairman. The principal effort of the Committee on Advertising has been to give ])ublicily U the meetings of the Association during the year. In order to accomijlish this, posters and notices large enough to easily catch the eye were posted around in places most frequented by the students. The Committee had a leaflet descriptive of the Association printed during the summer, which was used as an insert and dis- tributed with the College catalog. Just before the opening of the College in the fall a booklet was pre- pared containing some brief general information about things in general annind the campus, designed for distribution especially among the new students. This booklet included such information as might be of help to new men in getting settled, besides a blank form for the tilling in of the schedule of recitations, and was found to be useful. The members of the .Advertising committee are: Anderson, chairman; lioone. Holt. Coats. Mitclu-ll, Verner Clavton. THE study committee. HARor.n P). EvAX.s, Chairman. One can readily infer that the work of this committee, along with the Religious Meetings committee, comprises the best the Y. M. C. A. stands for, because their work covers the religious side of the Young Men ' s Christian Association. This year there have been six Bible classes organized at different times with an average attendance of thirty-five or approximately six members to a class. The Life of Christ and his teachings is tlie line of work followed and taught. MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE. Wm. Campbell, Chairman. Geo. Quesenberrv, R. Stewart, R. Tala era. At the opening of the school a vigorous campaign for members was conducted. Blank applications for membership were circulated and more than a hundred were signed. Collections were slow, however, and 106 the year is cldsine; with the cnrdlhnent standing at the century mark. One other campaign and numerous canvasses have been made l)ut the success attained has fallen short of what had been anticipated. FINANCE COMMITTER. S. EnuERT Merrill, Chairman. Ai the opening of school last fall the finance cumniittee met in joint session with the General Sec- retary and a budget was made out. It was decided that $950.00 was the minimum that could be figured as a year ' s e.xpenses. This, however, has proved insufficient and possibly $1,100.00 will be e.xpended on current e.xpenses for the year. Of this amount $650.00 is revenue from room rents and $200.00 from membership fees. Dur- ing the year a $1,500.00 building debt was paid oft and the Association is closing the year free from debt. 107 Young Women ' s Christian Association R Y. W. C. A.

Last vear tlie mcetin js were lield wlicre er a vacant room and a piano could be found, tlie Music room, Assembly Hall, and various otlier placL ' s. Tiic Association fell that the work was g-reatly handicapped. Therefore, about the middle of the second semester of i)Oj the f irls decided to make definite plans for having thir own quarters ready for the I- ' all work, as the association is too small to Y. w. c. A. Room afford a building they asked the college for a room to be set aside for them and the president kindly gave them one of the largest class rooms in the basement of the Old ;Main lUiUding. During the summer the Advisory Board had it cleaned and tinted, so when the girls returned in September it was ready for the furniture. As there was not enough nuMu-y in the treasury a vigorous campaign was started to raise money for furnishing the room. The girls of the Domestic Science Department made aprons for an apron sale, which netted a neat little sum. Candy sales held on various occasions gradually swelled the » 109 Y. W. C. A. anmunt and tiiially hy tlic assistance of some of the musical people of the college and community a con- cert was gi en to raise the balance of the money. With the money, cliairs. table and curtains were purchased. Several pictures, a couch and a few other little tilings were j.;i en and Rev. Lewis of the St. James Episcopal Church donated a very nice orjjan. which supplied one of the s reatest needs. This room is not only a place for religious meetings, but it makes a nice social room. It is always open for the girls during the noon period, or any other hour when they wish a quiet ])lace to rest or study. ( Ireat jirogress has been made in the religious life of the association the past year. Meetings have been held e ery iwn weeks, Tlu-y arc usually led by the girls with occasional addresses by some outside speak- er. These meetings do not only give spiritual uplift but are edu- cating and training the girl for future work. The World ' s ' eek of Prayer was observed as usual, and the girls were brought in touch with the Y. M. C. A. work that is being carried on all over the world. The .girls who can. have freely given their services in making posters for all the meetings, and social events of the year. Two Bible classes were established during the year. One for the da ' students was held at the noon hour once every week. This was led the first of the year by }ilrs. Phelps and later by Mrs. Frame. The other one at the Dormitory was led by the older girls of the house. The social side of the Y. W. C. A. work has not been neg- lected and the chairman of the social committee has been do- ing active work. An opening reception was arranged for the be- ginning of the year to welcome all the new girls and establish a general good fellowship. Hallowe ' en the Y. V. C. A. gave a most successful Street Fair at which they entertained a large crowd. On the i8th of March Miss Stafford, the general secretary at El I ' aso, Te.xas, came up to assist the Y. W. in the work for the coming year. P»esides giving a most helpful talk to the association at large, she met each committee separately to discuss plans and make suggestions for their work. In the afternoon a general reception was held so that she might meet all the ladies cif the I ' aculty ami cdiimiunity. More than two-thirds of the girls in the institution are members of the .Vssociation and ha e taken great interest in its work. . t the annual election the following officers were elected: President, Edna Anderson; Vice President, Letliia .Mitchell: . ecretary. Carnmn Gilliam: Treasurer, liertha Ma ' er. Ill The Gibbons Club The Cardinal Gibbons Clul) was ori anized duiint, tlie school year of u jij, ])riinarily to make it possible for the catholic students, residing at college, to attend mass each Sunday. The other and hardly less important object of the club was to give an opportunity to catholic students of becoming more familiar with their religion so that they may answer intelligently the questions so often asked of catholics and the objections so often raised. Although this clul) is not large the first year, it furnished the foundation for what is hoped w ' ill be one of the most influential organizations in school. At the beginning of the present school year a movement was started for the reorganization of the club. A meeting was called and the question of the possibility and advisal)ility of reorganization discuss- ed. . 11 seemed to be heartily in favor so a Sunday was set for reorganization, at which time officers were elected and the line of work decided upon. The club met with the hearty cooperation of Dr. Garrison and were given permission to use the Col- lege bus as a means of transportation to Las Cruces on Sundays. The number of resident catholics was so large tliat it was necessary to provide additional transpor- tation which was arranged for at the Coats Livery at a very reasonable charge. The work done by the club this year has been along the same line as that followed in 1909 namely, the discussion of Cardinal Gibbons ' book, " The haith of Our Fathers. " The subjects discussed are not only those found in " Faith of Our Fathers " but also questions relating to the Church, her policy and teach- ings, and her views on the problems confronting the jiublic of today. In order to become better acquainted with the number of our own faith in this vicinity, it was de- cided by the club to extend an inxitation to join to tlie young catholics of Las Cruces. The membership of the club is about twice tiiat of iqoo and it is hoped that it -will grow and accom- plish the end for which it was organized. Although the head(|uarters of the club are not entirely satisfactory ' yet they are the best obtainable under the existing circumstances, but we trust that by tlie beginning of the next school year more pleas- ant quarters will l)e at our dis])osal. We wish to tiiank Dr. Garrison and Rev. ' andermassin for tJieir hearty co-operation in this movement. 112 Gibbons Club St. James Choir John Jknmnc.s EgbKRT MliUKILL Paul Mayer Paul Given Sidney Howard Edwin Lyon Charles Buiggs Sam Bausman Howard Boone Morning Clioir .MOKXING CHOIR.

Los Solteros, or The Bachelors ' Glub. was organized in .Scptcnihcr iqoS, fur the ])uri)i)sc ni furnishing some interest to the bachelor fraternity of the College faculty, where it would not he sul jcct to the con- stant interruptions of that sly little fellow — Cupid. In spile nf tlie cozy quarters, good things to eat, and various stag celebrations, the little s])rite is working ha oc with the fraternity, and has enticed away our worthy brotiier, Mr. B. P. Fleming. Mr. F ' leming is a non-entity, Ijut for the sake of better language, we insert the words " ' Honorary Member " . May he rest in peace! In a short time this dangerous little god will again make an inroad into our [)eaceful midst, and it is (piite probable that with our small membership this year, we shall have to submit to his wishes, and permit him to take away with him, one — perhaps two — of our loyal brothers. (We feel that it is not necessary to mention anv names, for thev are known to everyone in this community. ) 118 1.U .- ..It-.IS At the early i)art of the year a free telephone service was instituted, and this accommodation was given to anyone living within a radius of one mile from the club-house, and many people took advantage of the reduced rates. This institution met with so much approval that at the end of February a check for forty-seven cents was given to all the poor unfortunates for the purpose of furthering our work of " charity " , and this was extremely helpful to " Father and the Boy. " But no longer does the fraternity retain these great institutions, so " charity " is a thing of the past. Such hackneyed expressions as " My ife " . and " I want my pie " , are not permitted to be used in the clu1)-house. Although there have been hut few social e ents thus far, owing to the fact the brotherhood has been devoting its time to the help of the poor and needy, yet. as the " Swastika " goes to press, the fraternity is planning a house-party for the near future, which will undoubtedly be as uni([ue and enjoyable as anything which has been given in college circles this year. 119 Apollo Club OFFICERS.

The Apollo club was formed at the Lafferty boarding house on College Row on the i th of September, 1909. The organization was for the purpose of giving the boarders an opportunity to make their own rules, regulating meal hours, the quality of the " Chuck " , the price of board, table etiquette, and other matters. Perhaps the most prominent rule of the club is its exclusiveness; no one is admitted to the club without first having been unanimously voted in by those present at any club meeting. The e ening meal is con- sidered the regular meeting and business matters are always discussed during supper time. Some evidence of the quality of our food is given by the fact that Harry Lane gained fifteen pounds during his first month with us. Not only do we have quality but also quantity ; complaints are few and far between. 120 kU KKKl W Kmi S suSt " ' Apollo Club The Mountain View Club 1 ,ikc main " similar insliuuinns. ihc Mountain ' iew Clul) Tills its place upon the campus. Those who gather about it every day to pay homage to their god. a S(|uare meal, are a peculiar mi.xture. Not only are ihey different in their characters, but in their personal api)carance also. To try to describe all these indi- viduals in detail would be a large undertaking. The l)est that 1 can do is to quote from a Knight of the r.iil. who having felt the pangs of hunger as he neared .Mesilla Park, decided to alight from his roost under the bn. car to see if he could not satisfy that longing that seemed to cry, " Home. Sweet TTome. " It seems that this son of ease, on rolling from his perch, spied two young men standing by the depot, and. tak- ing them for brothers of the cloth, decided to ap- proacii tlifni and sec if tlicy could direct him to a j)lace where the pangs of hunger might be satisfied. There- ui on. lie approached Henry and Hill tiiinking liial they were of his order and asked them to put him ne.xt. After a great deal of eiTort. they persuaded him that tiu-y were not traveling for the jileasure of seeing the countrv. but were attending the .Agricultural College. The worthy at once told the youngsters that he had lost his ]jurse the day before and was very hungry. Ileing of a tender nature, they asked him to dine at the Mountain A ' iew. and hence all the inside information on the subject. After several courses of choicest meats and vegetables, the gentleman refused the sweets and retired to the front of the house where I followed him to get some of his history. While eating he had been quite observant of every one present, keei)ing one eye on his plate and one on his friends. I was quite surprised to learn that he was really ac(|uainled with them all. He began with I ' .ill and Henry, saying that they were his pals in a night o])eration on a chicken roost, a few da s previous. I ' dain and Thomas he had seen oc- cupving separate rooms at the capitol of Xew Mexico, adding that they were then dressed in the most beautiful striped suits. He made apologies for havini disclosed so much, but added that he did it be- cause he was disgusted on account of their eating more than their share; l ede he claimed to have seen sell- ing jtcanuts on the streets of Xew York; Evans had drank beer out of the same can with him many times in and around El Paso; I ' aulkner he had helped to support when that little enthusiast was making a living with a hand-organ and a monkey on the streets of Roswell; Gardner he had seen keeping the crows off the corn down on Uie farm; Mary had waited on him many times in the grand cafe l)e Coats; Earl had brushed off the horse when he wanted to take a little ride while sojourning in the hamlet of Hillsboro; Merrill had worked for him on the section gang and received his l)oard in pay, and Paul was his soda dispenser when the days were too warm in the hills; Percy he had seen in high society of New York. P owing low over my hand he left me saying. " ' N ' e is the only in the crowd, but don ' t forget to " ive me regards to the cook. " The O. C. R.

Two years ago at the burning of the ' " Klondyke hash Inumlry " it suddenly became also the college hotel, a sort of " Harvey Plating House " . In the early fall, before boys ' boarding clubs nearer their dormitories are found or opened, it feeds pretty nearly all the nestors; it is the friend in need for faculty members without a wife: it must always be ready at short notice for imposing athletic teams of all kinds, and for all sorts of other visitors, from the Board of Regents to fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, aunts, cousins, uncles, nephews, grand- parents, and sweethearts of students. It cares for permanently all young women students away from home, all Territorial charges, and such young men students as prefer to walk the e.xtra distance to meals and miss the homelike standards, appointments, and general atmos])here of other hotels. To this advantage the presence of part or all of the i ' rtsident ' s familv fur the past three years, of the two College librarians, of several lady teachers, and a few ])rofessors of course contributes much. The parlor with its piano, fire place, girls and magazines is another pleasant element in the situation. The Matron, Mrs. Mac Iver, and the Dean of Women, Miss Daniels, are the officials who charge and either one of them will gladly furnish information or e.xtcnd a welcome to any orphan who desires to become part of the family.

No doubt the seeds from which sprunt; this plant were sown months before a real tree was noticed. The tree probably had its roots in the many challenges put before the socalled " V bunch " , — challenges which were not accepted because of the harm that it might do to the work of the V. .M. C. A. The real organization took form at last for the purpose of entertaining a visiting athletic team ; and further, with the jnirpose of protection to inmates of the " Y " and others abstaining from having an agres- sive policy. Its members consisted mainly of men li ing in the Y. l. C. A. Dormitory, but a few others were among its ranks. Among the activities df the club the most prominent ati ' air was their grand liall and reception to the School of Mines football team on Xovember 13th. Hadley Hall was very artistically decorated with pennants representing all the various institutions of the county. The " Merr) ' Widow " orchestra rendered excellent music for the occasion, and as a whole the entertainment proved a great success. liefore a club of any kind was organized, on that memorable night when Tortugas club floated a pen- ant over McFie Hall, membcrs-to-be of this organization went in a small body to serenade the girls. The serenaders were received with enthusiasm and in turn were entertained with songs by the girls. The girls named the musical l) incli the " Candy Kids " — thus the name of our chi!) ( Kandy Kid Klub). On that same night the guards of the Tortugas pennant, sleeping in a ditch by the roadside, were aroused half drowned by floods of water from the acequia from the west. A team from the K. K. K. played a game of basketl)all with nunil)ers of Tortugas resulting in a small score in fa or of the former; nevertheless trouble arose and rival clubs prevailed. Before more such rivalry should be developed, a few members of the K. K. K. circulated a petition among its members asking their President to di ' band the organization. 128 Tortugas OFFICERS. rrcsidcnt ---------- Gordon Goebel (• ■ I ' rcsulcnt ------- Charles Briggs Secretary and ' J ' rcasiirrr - - - - Sidney Kikpatrick Marshal ----------- Hugh Floyd YELL.

In the fall of the year of Nineteen Hundred and Nine tlie siu lents who abode in the Roys ' Dormitory organized themselves into what was known as the Tortugas Club. The object of this organization was the self government uf tlie dormitory; a Charter was then granted by the President of the College. It is not necessary that there be given a detailed account of the activities of tliis club, as there is little doubt but that those wdio attended College that fall will forget ; but the following will give in a very brief way the principal events of the Club ' s history.

The next was a great ball given in honor of the initiates on February 21st, 1910, and it was voted one of the greatest successes of the season, the only hitch being the losing of a half freezer of ice cream early in the evening. This did not hinder the program being carried out as tliere was enough to go around as it was. The soothing home sweet home was played at twelve o ' clock sharji. then the couples wendetl their w ay homeward to the tune of an extra slow march. Third was the never-to-be f irgotten hay ride to Van Patten ' s, the paradise of the Oregons. Although the time for starting was set for six o ' clock sharp, we did not get started until seven, but this was remedied by being an hour early (?) in getting back. The boys furnished the conveyance and the girls got the dinner as usual, but the menu was not as usual for we had everything to eat and a little more. The ride home was simply out of sight as darkness overtook us before we got really started. Fourth and last was a rousing good time indulged in by the members of the Rowgmahs on the first Saturday in May. Tliis took the cap nfT for llic }car, but with the intention lliat it was to be [nil on once more when scliool starts next year. The Sons of Rest • This is the largest unorganized crowd of male students in the College. By unorganized, is meant that there is no President. Vice President or Secretary. All business in this organization is done thmugli committees, each member of lliese committees being the Treasurer. This form of procedure has been adopted because of the impossibility for all memlx-rs to turn out at every call of their leader, and they are not all flush at the same lime, or C ' lse do not feel like in- dulging in prodigality just at that moment, . lthough the heads of these com- mittees are supposed to be always near the " Hush " ' line and willing to come forward to the assistance of their fellow members at a moment ' s notice, the members feel safer when they have a little spare " spondulix " with them. The main purpose of the Sons from the beginning has been to have a good time, when they feel inclined that way. or to cheer up those who have had trouble, especiallj- with the opposite sex. and need to be livened up. While the Sons never think it worth while to apologize for the motley cos- tumes which they wear and the various conditions under which they appear in society, yet, it might be said that the opposite picture is not a true repre- sentation of what the whole crowd would look like after being gathered to- gether for an evening ' s entertainment. The picture shown is one of the numer- ous committees snapped one morning after an all night ' s revelry. Like all other up-to-date organizations, the " Sons of Rest " have an ideal towards which they strive. The following is the belief, to a man, of the ever- lasting but everchanging members of this organization : Eat when you are hungry And drink when you are dry. Sleep when you are sleep} ' , But never sav die. 133 MEMBERS OF COMMITTEES. Senor Muchanickly Merrill, Fiver Cush Campbell, Esq., Hon. Ten Bone Kirkpatrick, Nickel Monetary Windsor, LL.

Our chief aim is to see how many smokes we can get off the others without, sometime, giving the same in return. .Mthougii we keep in the wide road to Durham and Dukes City, some of our mem- bers stray ofT to New Pipels, Chewolis. or Cigarville for a short stay, only to come flying l)ack home again. We are second to the largest male aggregation in this institution in numljers. For every man or boy that drops out of the ranks there is usually one ready to enter and take up the burden of the i ill and bear it under our standard. It is too great an effort for the average will power of the gang to (piit so that our number increases rather than diminishes every year. ( )ur motto may be expressed in the three irds " Cut it out. " Our colors are light brown on flesh tinted background. The four officers, picked by color and not because they are tlie best ones for the jHisition, are as follows : Duke Ali.xluic, from the deep brown amber color on his fingers. Knight of Durham, has the same color on his fingers, but he has not the st lc of the Duke. Guard of the Pills, — has not the (|uality of the other but still enough to hold his position. Sergeant of the Pipe, — has too light a color. Lastly comes the Pill Suckers in a crowd with all sorts of colors — but no (|uality. 136 Oflicers and Chief Mcnihers of K.. c4 B. The,. ' .,.,,,.1.1 Dramatics Tlie first event whicli can he classed under the gen- eral head of the Drama, occurring after the Swastika went to press last year, was " i ' lie Coonville Hohoes. " While this was not an effort on anyl)od3 ' s part to he profoundly Shakesperian, it was a good specimen of the rollicking " nigger minstrel " and served its piu ' pose in greatly annising the large audiences hoth at the Col- lege and at Las Cruces. It was gixcn hy the ' N ' . AT. C. A. men and brought in a neat sum for the furnishing fund. The individual work of several members of the cast made them locally famous for a time. Jennings and (Iregg as the end men and ' inds(:lr as intcrlncutur were as completely covered with glory as with burnt cork — which is saying a good deal: and Dunn as the Bhuh I ' ml- crcivski would have easily made his white counterpart green with envy, or at least blue with despair. Kirk- jiatrick portrayed the melan- choly type of coon, always in pale terror of " mali wife. " and made a hit. The success of " ' riie Coonville Hoboes " proved that the minstrel va- riety of show can be made a go here if indulged in occas- ionally. " I ' lie Toastmaster " was given Ijy the young men of I os Solteros club in May of last year. It is a college com- edy in three acts written by Norman Lee Swartout, and its ])resentation by the club men was considered excellent. The play abounds in ridicu- lous situations and amusing chmaxes. and its plot made it of more than usual interest 10 the College people. Mr. Wilco.x took the leading part as Bill Morgan, and his dis- guise as Maggy, the senti- mental cook, was very pleas- 140 ing. In fact, the hit wliich the play made with everybody sliowed a most careful assigning of the parts and the whole cast played them with a rusii and swing which kept the audience in continual laughter. Mr. Paul Stanley as Bucccr ' the small chec-ild. was notably ridiculous in the curls and knickerbockers as he played on his toy piano and worried his absent-minded father, the Professor (Mr. Schaphorst) who was in the throes of writing his ree-markable book on Street Car Conductors. Mr. Fleming made one of those sweet, pleading, clinging-vine sort of girls, in his role of Cynthia, the leading lady, and be it said to the great and endless credit of both Mr. Fleming and Mr. Wilcox that they both remembered every last item of feminine frippery and ap- peared before the footlights with every rat, bow and pin in its proper place. The part of George Mcintosh, the stammering suitor to the hand of Cynthia, was filled by Mr. Reynolds Mitchell, who was notably strong in hi? ring scene with tlie heroine in which he gasps out his great heart in the words, " Another fu-fu-fond hu-hu-hope bub-bubble-lasted! " Mr. Stoneking and Mr. Grieb played admirably their parts as the heavy villians. Mr. J.ain as the deaf-and-dumb Mrs. Reed, and Mr. Schaphorst as her henpecked husband excited much laughter. Mr. Anderson as The Toastmastcr withstood the ordeal of being kidnapped thrice and was able to preside at the class banquet in the closing scene. This play, which was given under the direction of Jirw yr ' N ' WP ' t ' ' ' ' - ' 3 generally conceded to be the dramatic [Ifil iIBHHI ' - Iff Vllv event of the xear. v) THE CAST. iii ' 3L .

It made a verj ' favorable impression and the cast deserved much praise for their work. Again the assignment of the parts showed good judgment, and in .spite of the fact that all who took part in the play were without previous experience the production succeeded well. The leading role was played by Walter Mann as Dixie, the Hired Man. Following is the Cast: Asa Tompkins, a Prosperous Farmer Archie Poe Dixie, the Hired Man Walter Mann . John Remington, in Love with Louise Roland Harwell Jerry, a Country Lad John Powers Louise, Daughter hom Mr. Tompkins Relieves to be his Own Rave Hines Julia, Only Child of Mr. and Mrs. Tompkins Olive Parks Ruth, Niece of Mr. Tompkins Audie Crist Mrs. Sarah Tompkins Ada Hoagland During Commencement Mr. Wilcox gave an interesting reading of Sutro ' s strong play, " The Walls of Jericho. " This was followed on tlie same evening by the presentation of " A Proposal Under Difficulties " by a cast of four. The playlet is an amusing farce by John Kendrick Bangs, and the clever way in which it was acted made it very pleasing. Miss Deemcr, as The Maid is especially worthy of mention. The Cast for tliis plav was: Bob Yardsley Mr. Burkey Dorothy . ndrews Lois Friend Jack Barlow Mr. Wilcox Jennie, the Maid Phyllis Deemer Suitors tn the hand of Dorothy. " Mabel ' s Manoeuvre " , a one-act farce by I ' encdix, formed a part of the graduating exercises of the Senior Preparatory class during Commencement week. The following members of the class formed the cast : label Ada Hoagland Mrs. Hobbs Olive Parks Violet Lethia Mitchell Mr. Hobbs Coats Mitchell This little farce was well carried out. The unusual domestic difficulties developed in the short plot were quite entertaining. During the present year the drama has been to an extent supplanted by orator}- and debating, but the impetus wliich has hcen s nven to these latter is well worth the apparent sacrilice to dramatic efforts, in view of ihc fact that both oratory ami debating in the College have long been in need of development. Rut the drama has not been abandoned or forgotten, as the classes in expression have been making an exhaustive study of Ibsen ' s plays during the year, and as the Swastika goes to press rehearsals are beginning for the staging of " The Triumph of Youth " , adapted by Donald Robertson. 143 Oratory The year just past has heen one of unusual success along oratorical lines. Never before has that art taken such a prominent part in the activities of this school. Stimulated by tlie united efforts of the Current Topics Club, the Alumni Association, and the department of luiglish, puljlic speaking, vvliicli heretofore had been i)rac- ticallv a lost art here, has taken a new lease on life and is fast coming into its own. Early in the fall, December 4th was set as the date for the preliminary oratorical contest. Tis contest was to decide who should represent tite college in the annual Inter-terrilorial meet liefore the I ' .oard of Education at Roswell, during the holidays, and had much weight in deciding the winner of the Alumni medal. Last year there was but one candidate for the local honors, but this year there were thirteen entries, but only eight orations materialized. It is interesting to note that all contestants were members of the t urrent Topics Club. None of the orations were long, as only fifteen hundred words were allowable. The great variety of subjects and the way in which they were treated made the contest interesting for tlie large crowd that was present at the meet. Mr. Ray M. Wilcox, Secretary of the Territorial Oratorical Association presided over the contest, which was held in Hadley Hall. The contestants had labored faithfully and all their papers were deserving of much credit. Rupert L. Stewart, a Junior and a brother of last year ' s orator, was given first honors, and in him the college sent their most able speaker to Roswell. Stewart ' s oration, " The Pioneer ' " , tended to show that I)ioneering was the spirit of adventure that is inbred in the soul of the Anglo Saxon, and tliat it would con- tinue until all problems liad been solved and all lands discovered. At Roswell. .Stewart contested witli men of greater experience at public speaking, and even though handi- capped won third place. Present indications indicate another record lireaker for this school next ear, as practically all the orators and debaters have expressed their intentions of coming back. . ext year, the L ' niversity will have to work harder than ever before to hold their reputation as " best in oratory. " The following is a list of the speakers and their subjects : ' The Only Cure for the National Evil " — Earl J. Wilson. " Opportunity " — Harry I.. Parks. " Victories of Peace " — Edwin R. I yon. " The Pioneer " — Rupert I.. Stewart. " An Appeal for Liberia " — Edgar Archie Poe. " The Honest Rich iMan " — Chas. Briggs. " The Discovery of the North Pole " — Dudley Ewing. " The I ' ower of Personality " — Robt. L Dillon. The judges on this occasion were. Professors Wooton and Tinsley, and Mr. Wni. Sutherland. A record of the contestants ' grades were kept to be used in deciding the winner oi the .Mumni medal. The preliminary debate figiues taken jointly with the oratorical figures decided the winner of the medal. The lucky party will not be known until Commencement. Oscar Snow is the donor of this year ' s Alumni medal. Joseph W. Rignev Dudley Luiiig Cna . Briggs Rupert L. Stewart Debate At llic Alumni j;aiu|ucl of igoij, Dr. J. 1 . Macarlliur, lit-ad ul llie l ' " ,ni;;lisli (k-i)artment, delivered an address urging tlie members ti) do somethin!:; lo promote an interest in public speaking and debate. He very forcibly presented the need of tlii.s. At the business meeting held the following day $25.00 were appropriated for the purchase of a medal to be awarded to the person making the best grades in the local preliminary oratorical contest, and in the preliminary debate. This announcement met with very encourag- ing results for early in the I ' all, even at the first meeting of the Current Topics Club, the revival of interest in public speaking was noticeable. The Freshman English class was the first to appear on the scene. They brought forth two team.s which were to compete and the three best men were to challenge first the Juniors and then all comers. The l- " re.shmen chose as their topic the Woman ' s SutYrage Idea. Those defending the universal suf- f rage were Dillon, Ewing, and Lyon and those favoring the restriction of .tlic ballot to males were Briggs. Williams, and I ' oe. The question was decided before the first open meeting of the Current Topics Club in Hadley Hall on h iday exening, January 15th. Though the ])articipants were all practically new to the game, they showed that the} ' had worked hard in gathering material, and in presenting argument acted like veterans. The decision was granted unanimously to the affirmative, and woman was given her rights. The judges were: Professors Wooton, Schaphorst and Wilcox. Dillon was declared ineligible, and Briggs, Ewing and Poe were picked as the three next best men. In the meantime a challenge had been issued to the El Paso High School. The Pass City school accepted and the question agreed upon is, " Resolved: That the United States Should Immediately Further Increase Her Navy. " The College has chosen the affirmative and the date is set for late in April. Next on the program was the Junior-Freshman wrangle over the " Discountenance of the Present Protective Policy of the United Government in International Commerce. " Poe, Ewing and P.riggs attacked the present national administration and advocated radical changes. Mayer, Hermann, and JMcCowen defended the jjresent policy, but lost the decision of the judges. The judges of this meet were: Pro- fessors Garrison, .Stocker and Schaphorst. These two debates tended to develop good material and trained nun fur the intercollegiate team. The fiuestion as submitted by the Varsity was " Resolved, That Commission l- ' orm of Municipal Government is the Best Form of Municipal Government. " 146 When candidates for the intercollegiate team were called for Briggs, Ewing. and Lyon allied them- selves on tlic affirmative, the college side of the question, and Stewart and Rigney agreed to work on the negative. At the eleventh liour Dillon was prevailed upon to join forces with the negative. The iircliminary took place in Hadley Ilall on the evening of Saturday, March 5th. This proved the best debate of the season, and all speakers did justice to their respective sides. The contest was close and interesting throughout. The decision as rendered by the judges, Professor Wooton, Mr. Bloom, and Mr. Sutherland was two to one in favor of the affirmative. Dillon was again disqualified and Ewing was given first ])lace, and Rigney and Briggs tied for second honors. This gave the above named men places on the intercollegiate team. Much credit is due the Department of English for the revival of interest in this line of work. 147 Publications STAFF Miss Phyllis Deemer John A. Anderson Miss Silvia Anderson Robert I.

' OOO0D03O(K OO« O 0C BASKET BALL OCIETY Society Dripping Spring DORMITORY PICNIC, APRIL 24, 1909. A delightful mountain picnic was given by Mrs. Ethel Mc- Ivcr, linusekeeper at the dormitory, in honor of Miss Cooper, who left the first of May to take a position as nurse in Provi- dence Hospital. Miss Cooper had been on the cooking staff at the Dormitory for two years and those invited on the picnic were the boarders there. The drive to Dripping Springs, Major ' an Patten ' s mountain camp, was keenly enjoyed. The day was beautiful and every one gave himself up to the enjoyment of the grand scenery, the bracing mountain air, and last but not least, to the abundant lunch provided. Although a great deal of climl)ing was done, no one fell off a precipice, or drowned in a spring, and the time for departure came only too soon. As the sun was setting, the merry party was spinning ddwn the canyon toward the valley, with many sighs and farewell l)ackward glances at the scene of their day ' s pleasure. JUNIOR CLASS PARTY. On Saturday evening, . i)ril 24, the Junior Class gave a party in honor of Professor Clarence T. Hagerty, who has been patiently imparting knowledge to the wayward students for the last eighteen years. The rooms of the Domestic Science Department were arranged for the occasion and dancing was enjoyed during the evening, the music being furnislied by the Colonia Latina Orchestra. At nine-thirty the refreshments were served, which con- sisted of fresh strawberries and cream, cake and coffee. The crowd adjourned at a late hour after giving Pro- fessor and Mrs. Hagerty several cheers and wishing them a long and prosperous life. SOPHOMORE HAY RIDE, M.A.Y i, 1909. One of the most jolly class functions of the year was the moonlight hay ride given by the Sophomores. Two large wagon-loads of students left the Dormitory at seven-thirty and headed down the " Paseo. " .• fter crossing the bridge at Las Cruces, they took the road for fMd Mcsilla. They stopped at the home of Miss Hines for lunch, which was partaken of under a group of apple trees liy a dim light of several Japanese lanterns. .After a short rest, the party set out for home, wishing that such rides might be made tii last a little longer. THE G. K. C. ENTERTAINS. The r.. K. C. Girls charmingly entertained a number of their friends on Friday evening, May i, in honor of Miss Blond Cooper. The principal part of the program was carried out on tlic lawn where there were several Navajo rugs, chairs and benches. The entire club was in the receiving line and the guests were greeted with vari- ous handshakes, the last being the G. K. C. shibboleth. Various interesting and amusing games were played, such as a clothespin race and a state and capital contest. Light refreshments were served, after which the guests took their departure. CADET HOP, MAY 12. The battalidn of cadets gave their annual ball at Hadley Hall on Saturday night, in honor of Major George. The receiving began at eight o ' clock and the dancing at eight-thirty. Major George and Mrs. Garrison led the Grand March, assisted by Cadet Major Harwell with Miss Inez Buvens. Refreshments were served in the Do- mestic Science room from ten to twelve. The music, furnished by the Merry Widow Orcliestra, was excellent, the floor w as in fine condition, and the evening ideal, all combining to make the affair one of the crowning events of the year. ELEVENTH ALUMNI BANQUET. The annual alumni luncheon, hekl on Tuesday evening. R-Tay 25, was one of iJie most successful the Associa- tion has ever held. The guests were seated in the New Assembly hall, which was very satisfactorily used for this purpose for the first time. Each table was artistically decorated with crimson-shaded candles and a large center- piece of cut flowers. In the center of the room was placed the head table, at which were seated the graduating class and the toastmaster, R. R. Larkin, ' 04. A delicious three-course luncheon was served by the girls of the Cooking De- partment, after which the program of the evening was rendered. The first speakers to respond to the toastmaster were W. A. Sutherland, ' 0 ; Prof. Tinsley, ' 99 ; Herbert Alleman, ' oy : Pres. ' . E. Garrison, Prof. Hadley and Dr. ] lacarthur. The roll of tlie classes was then called and Oscar Snow respond- ed for ' 94, Mr. Sutherland for ' 98. Prof. Tinsley for ' 99, Prof. Sage for ' 00, Mrs. C. D. Case for ' 01, Miss French for ' 02, Miss Ford for ' 03. C. D. Case for ' 04, Mr. Quintero for ' 07, and Mr. Mundell for ' 08. . t twelve o ' clock all . formed a circle around the room, joining hands and singing " Auld Lang Syne, " which brought the eleventh alumni banquet to an end. 153 S1{X1()R I ' KUMENADE.

The hall was nicely decorated and the nuisic, furnished by the College Orchestra, was excellent, as usual. i cfreshnients were served during the evening in the Domestic Science rooms. The crowd was in a happy, yet sad mood, for afterwards there were good- byes to he said, and friends to he sei)arated.

The reception given at .Mci-ie Hall mi Saturday evcnins was well attended. Those in charge had ex- cellently arranged plans for the meeting of the old and new college peo])le, and soon all felt at home. There was a grand march in which the couples were changed every few minutes in ortler to make everj ' one acf)uainted with every one else. Then the crowds were gathered together, according to their native states, and this oc- casioned no little surprise at the many states represented. 1 )aiuing followed and at ten o ' clock the company took their leave. PRF.SIDEXT ' S RRCEPTIOX. The annual president ' s reception to the faculty an l -.ludcnis. witli their friends, was held in Hadley Hall on Friday evening, September lo, and the crowd assembled wa one of the largest ever seen at a social affair in the history of the college. The receiving line was stationed near the stage, which w s artistically decorated with palms, with a scenic l)ackground of trees. When the ])coi)le had all arrived the receiving line broke up and the crowd intermin,S:;led for a couple of hours. . t 10 o ' clock the I. as Cruces Orchestra arrived and dancing began. Delicious refreshments were served in the Domestic Science rooms and at twelve the guests departed. THE ANNUAL Y. M. C. A. PICNIC. The fourth annual . ssociation picnic was held on Saturday. September 25. and a good crowd was in at- tendance. The carriages arrived on the scene at 6:15 and soon the picnickers were on their way to Van Pat- ten ' s. The majority of the crowd reached the mountain camp at eleven, although it was nearly twelve before the chaperons. Miss Daniels and Mrs. Oliver, arrived. The crowd spent the time before lunch in investigating the camp and the bracing mountain air sharpened their apjictites, to which their due appreciation of the abundant mtMW- A 1 -V m 1 luiicli testified. After all had dune justice to tlie feast, they set out for a climb, some yoing to Ice Can von, some to Maple Grove, and ome to hitherto unexplored regions. I!y live some had returned and a hort ilance was held in Major an 1 ' alien ' s dining hall. . t si.x o ' clock dinner was served to the hungr) people, who bade fair to dis])ose of even the crumbs. Preparations for departure were made and soon the coujiles were spinning down the canyon, after a last farewell to the dusky, lowering peaks behind them. TORTL ' GAS DANCE.

STREET FAIR. The Y. M. C. A. gave a Hallowe ' en street fair on the evening of October 30, at which many uniciue fea- tures were int roduced. The " stunt ' ' was held in Hadley Hall, all the rooms of the building being used for the various attractions. There were Gypsy fortune telling booths, and a side show containing such attractions as a famous snake charmer, the fattest and the thinnest ladies in the world, and the only mermaid in captivitv. Candy was sold in the auditorium, and in the basement were held typical Hallowe ' en " stunts " . There was a " shoot the chutes " arranged on the back stairs down which the courageous whizzed madly in a galvanized iron tub, to be spilled out onto a mattress spread below. The survivors were then taken around the building in a Japanese jcnriksha, or on the back of Teddy ' s elephant from Africa, which in reality was an ordinary Rocky Mountain canary, plus a stuffed calico trunk and tusks. The last thing on the i)rogram was a vaudeville, consisting of several songs and drills by the Dormitory girls, and touching selections rendered by the Las Cruces and " Merry Widder " Orchestras, on such classic instruments as tubs, tin pans, egg-beaters, wash-boards, and tin lids. Although it was the association ' s first atteni]3t to give a public affair, they felt amply repaid for their labors. i. ' je Supper AG. STUDENTS SHUCKING BEE.

Most of its members have been here ever since the institution was organized and from present indications, they are in danger of being here as faithful sup- porters of the College for a few more decades. The members who have entered the class lately, that is to say. in the past four years, are readily falling into the ways of the Class and will soon be as handy as the older members. The Class has in the last few years developed some creditable actresses and athletes, but its best work is still before it.

Three hundrecl rooters, supporters of the Crimson had gone to the Pass City on the special train, and every man was confi- dent of a victory. We lost the game, but proved that we were game losers and that we can take defeat in a manner that few schools can. A disinterested party would never have guessed that we had suffered defeat for the rooters and college enthusiasts proceeded to give a demonstration of football enthusiasm that made the peo- ple of the Pass City ' " sit up and take notice. " The boys, about thirty in number, wearing the little red skidoo hats, coats turned inside out, and supplied with noise making apparatus of various kinds, paraded the streets from eight to ten-thirty o ' clock. The line of march included all the town streets, all the nickelodeons and ten-cent theatres, the carnival and many other interesting places were paid a visit. On the crowded street corners a burles(|ue of the El Paso Military Institute and the Fort Bliss bands was given. The fun would ha c been continued long into the night had it not been fur ha ing to catch the train for home at eleven o ' clock. Promptly at the schedulcil time the excursion departed from the Union de]:)ot, and the ' ' alley folks, weary from a strenuous day, settled back into their seats, as they thought to rest. Hardly had the train started to move when the leader of the tin horn band mustered his men and started through the train. Back and forth from front to rear and rear to front halting long enough in each coach to make a few announcements or sing a song and then imitate the " .Merry Widow " orchestra. This continued throughout the journey homeward and kept the entire delegation awake, and to the delight of nearly all on board, furnished no little amount of amusement. All participating in the " stunt " pronounced it the time of their life. Long live " college spirit " at X. .M. . . C. HIS LITERARY C.XRREK.

It was finally decided tliat it would be to the best interests of the school to give a public demonstra- tion and at a time when least expected. So on the following evening three-score white-robed, mysterious-looking figures gathered, amid the blare of trumpets, around the Y. M. C. A. building. Much mys- tery surrounded the scene, but closer inspection revealed the fact that the strange figures were college students bedecked in bath-robes, night-shirts, or pajamas. . t the specified moment the leaders gave the com- mand and a line of march was formed with the tweh ' e- piece band in the lead. The first ])lace visited was tlie girls ' dormitory. From McFie Hall the march contin- ued to the home of e.x-President Hadley, and then to the Loretto Academy. Here a short rest was given and a crowd of Cruces students were recruited. Once nmre the line of march was formed, double file with band, drum major and officers in the lead. Torches were lit Hagerty ' s Pipe Dream My son shall sit on England ' s throne With all that job entails. For judging by his midnight voice He is the Prince of (wails) Wales. and at the sound of the leader ' s whistle pandemonium broke loose. Never before had the citizens of Las Cru- ces witnessed such a scene. An up-to-date minstrel parade would be small compared with the showing made by those ninety mischief-loving individuals. Stops were made at all street corners, where speeches and yells were given. Arriving at the Airdome the band formed in a circle and played several selections, to the delight of the throng that crowded the streets. Finally .Mr. Bennett, manager of the playhouse, put in his appearance and in- vited the boys to see the show as his guests. No pro- tests were made and all marched inside and u]) in front to the reserved seats. The students immediately took possession of things. Solos were sung, speeches made, and monologues were given. Leaving the . irdome. the outlaws continued their marching. The homes of several leading citizens were serenaded, the confectionery of .Mr. Katzen- stein visited, all receiving a treat, and tJicn " Home, Sweet Home " was played by the band for the benefit of the girls of the Loretto Academy.

This is an excellent arm for target work as well as rabbits, squirrels, hawks and all small game up to 200 yards. The ammunition is cheap, giving much enjoyment at little expense. In our four distinct models — the solid top is always a protection and keeps powder and gases from blowing back: the side ejection allows in- stant repeat shots, without the possibility of throwing an ejected shell into your face or eyes; the re movable sideplate or take-down construction makes them the easiest of all .22s to keep clean. e j7Iar n i rearms Co. , 4V Willon St. NEW HAVEN.
