ONG AGO, in the days of the Constitutional Convention, someone had a vision of a school to be located in the heart of the Red River Valley which should follow the trend of modern times toward vocational education. So an Academy of Science was located at Wahpeton, with a generous land grant and unlimited possibilities for progress and service.
In 1903 the school opened its doors with a faculty of three members and an enrollment of sixty-two students. In 1905, the Red River Valley University sold its campus, building and equipment to the State School of Science, and the school began operations in its present location. Since that time, new buildings have been erected as needed,—the shops in 1905, Burch Mall, the Chemistry Building and the Power Plant in 1910. and the Gymnasium in 1911. In these modern and well equipped buildings are housed the many courses which have been added from time to time.
It is interesting to note the changes which have been made in the courses of study since the time the school opened. In 1905 four courses were offered,—general science, electrical and mechanical engineering, teachers of science, and medical preparation. Since that time, the courses have broadened and extended until they include industrial and trade courses, such as electrical, steam and gas engineering, wood-working, agriculture, stenography, and Domestic Science; secondary courses, such as the three-year preparatory course and the rural teachers’ course; and a splendid Junior College Course of two years.
Of the teaching faculty, only one has been with us for a full decade,—namely. Professor Carroll I). Clipfell, who began teaching here in 1903. as Professor of Mechanical and Steam Engineering. Miss Lillian Mirick joined the ranks in 1907 as Librarian and instructor in English. E. O. Prather came in 1908 as instructor in Commerce and Business; E. H. McMahon, Professor in English, and H. G. Staton, instructor in Bookkeeping and Arithmetic, in 1909. In 1910. President E. E. Smith became the head of the school. In the same year Hubert Warren was added to the faculty as Director of the Band and Orchestra. In 1912 three changes were made in the faculty; E. H. Jones came to the Biology Department: G. P. Wolf to the Chemistry Department; and Van I. Ward became Athletic Director.
In 1913. M. E. Todd, for Physics and Electrical Engineering: Miss Vera E. Miles as Instructor in Modern Languages; Miss Erances Xuill. as Instructor in Domestic Economy: and Miss Alice Oistad, as Assistant in Domestic Science; Miss Edith Johnson, as Instructor in Stenography and Typewriting, were the new members of the teaching staff. Miss Elsie Kuster was installed in the same year, as Secretary of the Science School. John Ness became instructor in forge work. In 1914 G. C. Morehart came to us as Professor of History and Education. The last additions to our faculty are Miss Mabel Jamieson. Assistant in Stenography and Typewriting, and E. P. Brunner, instructor in Shop Work, who joined us in 1914 and 1915. respectively.
A new statement of the purpose of the school was enacted into law by the legislature of 1907. “The chief object is the training of skilled workmen in the mast practical phases of applied science.” This is the principle which has governed the schaal in producing students who are filled either for further training, or for taking their places immediately in the life of their own community. In June. 1915. the supervision of the school passed, with all other state schools, into the hands of the State Board of Regents. While no immediate changes have resulted from thi' change of control, yet it is certain that even greater efficiency and success will he attained as a natural result of the revised system.

OSING, for i he lime being, as I he duly appointed historians of the Stale School of Science, the liditorial StalT of the 1916 edition of the Agawasie presents to you this volume. It i-not with an expectation of your complete approval of all its details that we submit it to your inspection, because that would be far beyond our fondest hopes, but if we have succeeded in so setting forth the various phases of school life, that the reader comes to feel himself better and more favorably acquainted with our Alma Mater, we will have accomplished our most sincere purpose.
Here also we wish to thank all—faculty, students and friends—who have so kindly assisted us in any way with their time, money and talents. If anything appears herein, which might make someone feel hurt, or if anything of importance has been overlooked, please remember that it was not our intention that it should be so. If anything of virtue is found, we only ask that due credit be given those who have so kindly co-operated with us to make it what it is.

RKI) K. SMITH was born at Tunbridge, Vermont, in 1861 ; received his B. A. degree at Dartmouth College in 18S9 and his LI. D. degree at Albany Law School in 1891 : practiced law three years; held successively school superintendencies at I laydenvillc, Mass., Windsor, Conn., l-'argo and Wahpeton, X. Dak.; and in 1910 was elected to the President's Chair at the State School of Science.
In him our school has found a man, who claims no higher distinction than that of the students best friend, and an executive to whose untiring zeal and ability is due, to a great extent, its present high standing and development.Carkoi, I).

Nl! bright autumn day in the fall of 191 5, mates from all parts of the state again assembled and launched once more upon the sen of knowledge. We raised a Hag of Green and Gold and chose Leo Dominick as our Captain; on a pennant at the stern was our motto. "Neglect not the gift that is within thee.”
There have been times during our course that Father Aeolus seemed to let the mates have their ways, and we were tossed and beaten until our bark seemed likely to succumb, but now, as we near the harbor of our goal, Neptune milcs upon us and we are coming into port on a calm sea.
The labors of the crew have not proved as tedious as they promised. Any one of oar number can testify that a great deal of pleasure has sifted in: Get-together parties at the "gym,” athletic contests, picnics, hikes, and, also, the pleasure we have derived from the association with other members of the school. In fact so much is this so that we fear that several members of our crew may sail off in canoes built for two.
During our trip we have had many narrow escapes. Examinations seemed very dangerous rocks. Wc have nearly became swamped with note books. A number of us have passed the Scylla of Chemistry from whose cave issued frightful fumes of ll S; others have reached the Charybdis of Physics, where with difficulty, by following Boyles Law. they have passed the mighty vortex. We have been piloted safely through with goodly supplies from Domestic Science.
What wc as a class have not learned on our journey is scarcely worth knowing. Some have become great scientists, others historians; there are mathematicians, engineers domestic economists and commercialists among the crew. Nor must wc neglect to say that orators, debaters and declaimers are found in the ranks, also athletes, editors and leaders of school activities.
A few have left our crew, having been enticed by pleasant landings into different ports. But we are a shining example of the "Survival of the Fittest." Our ship has weathered many storms, we have won the prize we sought. We pari today with saiL unfurled, and embark on life’s broad stream.

Pleasant it is to stroll on the shore And watch the white foam play;
Pleasant to picture in the sand The dreams of a summer day;
For the heart of a man is the heart of a child Neath the spell of a summer day.
Wavelets coursing along the strand Leave to the child his fancies free;
But the booming breakers challenge a man To dare the open sea.
Comrade of mine, come set your sails.
Choose vour course and hold it true!
The sea is calling, calling afar.
Calling over the harbor bar.
Cood speed and good voyage I wish to you !
Straight the sea-road in smiling weather;
Hold it still 'mid the stormwind’s roar!
And the goodly ships wc have builded together Will bear us safe to the farther shore.AGAWAS IB

;['.JgsPi-z f |l 11-1 Junior College Department makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity.
Two years of College work are given, which qualify the students completing to enter the Junior class at other colleges and universities. Although academic education is not the primary purpose of the institution, the College department fills a real need in the life of the school, and makes its influence felt in all activities. The eight members of the Knglish I class have imbibed such a thorough knowledge of Shakespeare that they may be recognized anywhere by their meditative expressions. The Knglish II class of nine members have become highly proficient in art of argumentation; they will undertake to prove to you conclusively that you are not alive, or that a cat has three tails The German 1 class of three members and the German II class of four have made wonderful progress. Even a well read Deutscher from ‘Tier Vaterland" would be hard put to it to understand their mutterings at times. The classes in Knglish and American History have gained so complete a knowledge of Constitutions in general that any one of their members could settle the stormy conditions in Mexico in short order.
Mr. Wolf neglects no opportunity of extolling the ability of the eight shining lights of Chemistry II as mixers « f solutions and manufacturers of chemicals. An occasional explosion or conflagration no longer disturbs their tranquillity. They are even becoming reconciled to washing greasy lest tubes containing butter, egg yolks and other sticky substances. The eight Chemistry I sharks have toiled faithfully through the known and unknowns of qualitative analysis with the fond hope of some time becoming equal to the brilliance of their predecessors.
The Physics class of six students has set a record that succeeding classes will find hard to equal. Ask any one of them how much the water weighs in Lake Superior and he will go into a comatose state for some time, and then produce an answer that you can not contradict.
A Trigonometry class of six members burned the midnight juice without ceasing. As to results, we only know that the balls re-echoed to the strain of “Have you got your Trig?" until those big imposing books began to be looked upon with much respect by the uninitiated. An Algebra class of five members easily mastered three and four legged indeterminates. with a whispered prayer of thanksgiving that they were not centipedes.
Cats and guinea-pigs were the victims of the Physiology class, and their dissection was attended with much grewsome interest. The three members of the class used the microscope on everything they could cut small enough to put under it. During the last half of the year Bacteriology was taken up instead of Physiology, and the class was increased to six. The embryo Bacteriologists now talk glibly of schvzomyceies and baccillus prodigiostis. and even claim to know what the beasts are.
The Psychology class of nine members became thoroughly familiar with the mysterious workings of the human mind. It was not safe to allow one of this class to talk to you: for he was likely to be gathering material and evidence to prove that you were feebleminded. The class in Education consisted of six members. Some of the new theories advocated by these would-be educators would no doubt revolutionize the world if they could be put into practice.

MIS Department is the largest and contains about two thirds of the students enrolled. Under this division we have the engineering, normal, domestic science, agricultural and high school courses.
The engineering course, as offered, includes a comprehensive and practical study of steam and gas engines, with theory and practice in automobile and farm engineering, and a course in electrical engineering. Ihese courses give the student instruction of the most practical kind in the mechanics and operation of modern engines. Short courses are given during the winter term for those who have not the opportunity to take full year courses. About thirty-five young men were enrolled.
The teachers’ training course is fitting eighteen students to teach in the rural schools. The high school course is completed in three years. Its ranks include fifty disciples of learning, who are preparing for entrance t“ colleges or other schools, or for active work in some vocation.
Eight girls are enrolled in the domestic science classes. Instruction, in condensed form, is given in plain sewing and cooking, as well as art needle-work and allied lines.
From this department will come many of college grade in future years. Many, however, gain in this department, training which sends them back to their homes more efficient, better informed, and more capable of assuming the responsibilities which fall upon their shoulders.
The agricultural course is the latest addition to the curriculum but is growing rapidly into a very efficient department, because of its ability to meet the practical demands of the boys off the farm.

I Hi Homemakers cooking class were making Welsh Rarebit. Ivy Swank asked permission to invite Fat Peterson into the kitchen to give him a treat because he was such a cute “little boy.” Fat with his usual dainty appetite partook sparingly of Ivy’s stringy Rarebit. The result — Fat had the nighmarc that night and most of the boys in the Hall were awakened by
strange noises, inarticulate sounds and incoherent babblings of "Pass the Bulgarian

“Say, I had some nightmare last night. Bet I know more about Home Fconomics n«w than Emma Erickson ever expects to know. I took the whoe course last night Cooking. Sewing, .Millinery, Art Needlework and the whole works. Wow! Some swell cooks. We were serving a banquet for the Kangaroo Court—Barbara Kirkey was chief engineer in the kitchen and we got along swell until Busey appeared. ’Twas all olf then. She lost her head completely—she flavored the soup with blueing and the other things I'd hate to tell—her heart beat to the tune “Busey dear it's you I’m after." Queer effect some people have on others. Allie Knudson made the pie and I wish you had seen it—about the si e of a doughnut with a splash of custard in the center—guess she forgot to put in the soda. Ragna Ness made the best likeness of you Jack that I ever saw—made of gingerbread you know—shows where her mind is. Nothing slow about the mice over there, they are fairly tame—but the cockroaches arc certainly ferocious beasts! I ll bet that's when you heard me holler—one bit me right on the heel. .My but they are generous over there—I noticed a great big sign on the preserve cupboard ‘Help yourself boys.'
"Ida Hodgson was ordering mutton chops cut from the beef round—that’s the latest, eh? Elma Griepcntrog set the table and certainly got things mixed. Leslie was waiting outside and that accounts for it—even I knew that the table wasn't set right and the waitress made so much noise with her squeaky shoes that you could hardly hear Ivy Swank above the din.
“Next I appeared in the sewing class. Didn’t know I could sew did you? .My lirst attempt was a mighty swell ball gown for Minnie Lien- some dress believe me. French seams, inverted plaits, entre-doux cascades and all the latest wrinkles. Helen Shea was making a dear little dress for Dewey Johnson—Gee! and I can tat just great. Believe me. I'm some milliner too—made a “Bud” cap for myself. Esther Schneider put on the finishing touches—lovely pink roses buds—some baby—guess that was all. but it sure made a mess. Hope I'm never asked to eat anything more that the Home Economics department hashes up. Say, pass the beans, will you?”

HE Engineering department is divided into four parts: Electrical, Mechanical. Steam and Gas Engineering. The electrical engineering and the mechanical drawing are under the direction of .Mr. Todd. .Mr. Clipfell has charge of the mechanical, steam and gas engineering, including all the shop work.
The electrical laboratory is located in the basement of the Administration Building. It is well equipped with motors, dynamos, switchboards and other dangerous looking apparatus. The wireless station which Busev seems to find interesting is also located in this laboratory. It is quite a novelty to the students, especially the girls, who stand in awe when they see the sparks fly. The steam and gas engineering laboratory is located in the shop building. It is full of many kinds of engines of various makes and usually you will find an automobile or two in the process of repair. It also furnishes a convenient place for .Mr. Clipfell to put his Ford in running condition. The machine shop is well equipped with lathes, milling machines, planers and other machinery. Ben says the machine shop work is a snap: all you have to do is to put a piece of iron in a lathe and watch the machine do the work. The forge shop is probably the dirtiest place in the whole school. It is hard to recognize any of the students during class time. Everything from log chains to cold chisels is made by the students in this department. The wood shop contains six lathes, a pattern makers lathe, a band saw, a circular saw, a number of work benches and the necessary small tools. Some very fine work has been turned out by the students of this department this year. Of course the students think they are the cause of it. Those taking mechanical drawing have the pleasure of calmly sitting on a stool and spreading ink on a sheet of paper all afternoon and yet they talk about how hard they have to work. On the whole the drawings look pretty neat but it might he hard even for an expert to tell what some of them are supposed to be.
Seriously speaking the school has much to offer to any one wishing to take any of the various courses in engineering. Besides the regular courses in electrical and mechanical engineering, short courses are offered in electrical, mechanical, steam and gas engineering, automobile repairing and a short course in farm engineering. Realizing the fact that nowadays men without skilled training are seriously handicapped, trade courses are offered in carpenter work, plumbing, steam fitting, bricklaying and plastering. These courses should prove very valuable to those who have not the time or do not wish to spend a long time in school. The equipment is excellent and we have an unusually good faculty. Under the supervision of Mr. Clipfell and Mr. Todd the engineering department has so developed that the opportunities here compare very favorably with those offered by much larger and older schools.lUahprtmt (Cunsrruatoru of iHusir I

i Wahpeton Conservatory of Music is an institution which exercises a far-reaching and beneficial influence on the life of the school and the community. It was organized in November, 1912. under the auspices of the State School of Science. Since that time it has been incorporated, and has become a a growing factor in the educational, social, and aesthetic life of the town.
I he government of the Conservatory is lodged in a Board of Trustees of five members: 'he present board consists of Prof. C. I). Clipfell, president; Mr. II. Murray, vice-president; •'lr. Win. Kckes, secretary-treasurer: Prof. F. E. Smith and Mr. II. I- . Licber.
The studios f the Conservatory occupy an attractive suite of rooms in the Dowry Block. The faculty is made up of live members, distinguished by musical ability and fitted for their positions by thorough training and teaching experience.
Miss I5ard vell, director of the Conservatory and instructor in voice culture, is well equipped for her position, both as to natural musical talents and broad training and experience. She has studied f r a period of nine years under well known instructors of Chicago and elsewhere, and has had several years in concert work throughout the middle West.

=j] IIORTLY nflcr the opening of the fall term of school the Literary Society was reorganized. Nothing new was attempted except that the purpose of the organization was expanded to include control over all unorganized student activities. With such a broad purpose in view the next step was jJi B the formation of a representative Hoard of Control. This consisted of six l
students from the preparatory department, three students from each of the First and Second year college departments and a president elected by the student bodv as a whole, litis Board immediately assumed control, and its efforts have been crowned with a large measure of success.
The programs presented have been varied enough to suit the most particular tastes.
l:or the patriotic minded, there were stirring programs, commemorating Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays with eloquent speeches, melodious songs and costume dances which presented vividly to us costumes of long ago. For those of dramatic talent there have been opportunities for impersonation and expression on the Tri S. stage. Those who were argumentatively inclined have there discussed and settled to the satisfaction of their audiences many momentous questions, ranging front National Preparedness to the rival merits of the Lagle and the Turkey as a National Bird; from Philippine Independence to the relative advantages of hanging on to a tigers tail and letting go of it. The old-fashioned spelling match of our grandmothers' school days was revived for the edification of our members. Musical members added a pleasant variety to our meeting: the orchestra gave freely and willingly of their time and talents.
I he lri S. Literary Society has furnished entertainment, given valuable experience to the participants, and helped keep up the school spirit. In so doing, it has in some measure accomplished its purpose.

On Tuesday evening. Feb. 8. the debating teams representing the Northwest School of Agriculture of Crookston, .'linn., and the North Dakota Stale School of Science, met in a dual debate on the question of Increased Armaments. The affirmative teams of each school confidently invaded their enemies territory, but met unlooked for obstacles. I he S. S. S. Negative team received the unanimous decisions from the judges in the debate at home, while our affirmative team was able to convince only one of the three judges that our country is insufficiently prepared. The negative team of the Agricultural School was especially strong before its home audience. Both debates were warm ones and displayed a ready knowledge and skilled handling of the subject.
The debates were a decided success all around and proved conclusively that our school has the material for several first class debating teams, lo a great extent the excellent showing of our teams was due to the untiring efforts of Prof. Me Mahon who coached both teams, in addition lo his regular class work.

1750, Europe scarcely felt the existence of America. But when those thirteen immortal colonies wrote upon the pages of despotic history that inspired word, “Liberty." when at the mighty bidding of political independence, the waters of darkness began to recede, when the “I. George, the Third. King of England by the (trace of God," was changed to "We, the people of the United States,” a new chapter in World History began. Since then events that would have crowded previous centuries have been compressed into single decades. Broad-minded and progressive, with Liberty as her foundation, America has been built up until today she stands the Invincible Nation of the World.
Born in the throes of a revolution, purged of slavery and welded into Union by a civil war. this nation has been reserved for a high mission—to preach to the world the message of democracy. The sparks of Liberty struck off by the War of the Revolution have been fanned into flames and today only the frozen steepes of Russia witness the shadows of despotic rule. The changes within the country have been equally marvelous. Where once the smoke of idolatrous sacrifice ascended to heaven, the temples of a true God have risen. Where once a vast expanse of woodland was silent monarch of the soil, the busy hum of machinery now betokens wealth and prosperity. Wise forms of government have arisen. Industrial and social conditions have been bettered. From our zeal for education, schools and colleges have sprung up, leading the great masses out of the darkness of ignorance and misery into the sunlight of intelligence and prosperity. The source of all these miracles is the magic force of Liberty,, the most complete Liberty of all time.
Because of our freedom we have transformed the knowledge of the ages into action. In Europe, intellectual force is dwarfed by a landed aristocracy and large military establishments. In America, it is unfettered and utilized in insuring comfort, diffusing intelligence and developing internal resources. We lavish no money on dazzling thrones or extravagant courts. Our life blood is not sapped to maintain magnificent machinery for war. Instead, cities, villages and hamlets are connected by electric wires and bands of steel. East. West. North and South are united. I hese forty-eight states are as one. "It is with just pride that we point to America as the home of the greatest Liberty, the purest Christianity anil the highest civilization the world has even known.”
l uphold those ideals honorably, America has wisely avoided large armaments. It is therefore with great sorrow and regret that true and noble sons of America hear many of their fellow citizens declare that we must adopt vast and expensive measures of preparedness. Even the leaders of this country, the ones to whom we should naturally turn for counsel and leadership have been stampeded by useless fears and tell us that we must treble our army and make our navy the largest on earth. They would have us follow in the footsteps of the old world the path to the yawning chasm. To increase our navy to that strength would be an utter impossibility, for England stands pledged to maintain a navy equal to the rest of the world combined. On the other hand the entire system of increase is morally unsound for it would furnish an ignoble example to Europe.
W hen the sun breaks through the war clouds, Europe will again turn to militarism as her only salvation if America furnishes her with such an example. Despite all that may be said to the contrary, the armament system is a system of competition. Each increase of ours would be offset by a greater increase across the ocean. The same wearv race will be run until the world is once more an armed camp. History has shown us that this condition invariably leads to war. This lesson of history is confirmed by the terrible events of the present. Therefore let us be very careful before we make wars probable in the future by piling up vast armaments. The danger of being invaded is so greatly exaggerated that it does not warrant this mad rush for arms. I firmly believe with the great class of common people that there is no probability and only a bare possibility of war. The reasons are obvious. The American militarists do not realize the fact that the defenses of a nation do not lie entirely with the army and navy. Russia’s vast population and extent of territory. England's wealth and resources, and the spirit of citizenship in France and Belgium have been one and all determining factors in the present war. Factors such as these have made America feared and respected abroad. We may not be the best fitted for an immediate war but we are the best fitted of any nation for a war of long duration. The second year we would be stronger than the first, the third year stronger than the second, and so on. It is safe to say that the European powers realize the strength of these latent resources of war and therefore have not the slightest inclination to make war upon America. Without brandishing the sword, without having guns in readiness. America will always see her demands and rights respected by all the world.
Irrespective of these truths, a crisis has come. Today we see two conflicting doctrines battling for supremacy. One tells us that we are insufficiently armed to repel attack or to avoid insult. The other maintains that our army and navy constitute only a part of the system of defense and are adequate as such. In accepting the first. America will sacrifice everything for which she has stood in the past; in accepting the other she will prove a noble example, being actuated by her ideals and not by groundless and hysterical terror. America will then have taken an important step toward World Peace, a step which will make every American prouder of his country—prouder of her past record and present achievements and prouder still of the inspiration given to her future. If we increase our strength the prayers of our Pilgrim Fathers, the heroism of Warren and of Washington, the eloquence and statesmanship of Patrick Henry, of Webster and of Lincoln, the majestic music from the harps of Whittier, of Longfellow and of Lowell, tin-toiling of widowed and sonless mother and the death of patriot father will all have been in vain. Our ideals were set up by their patient and unselfish toil and if is our sacred duty to hand them to our children not tarnished but ennobled and sanctified.
America must perform her mission. Let the great trust sink deep into our hearts. The European doctrine that in times of prosperity a nation should prepare for war is below the moral standard of America. "It is erroneous and false, founded on ignorance and barbarism, unworthy of an age of light and disgraceful to Christians." Instead of I
spending millions to no purpose, we should develop our resources, promote the general welfare of our citizens and perfect our institutions of learning. The spirit of patriotism and harmony should he cultivated. Let us remember that these forty-eight states form an invincible nation whose duty and object it is to lead the world in the way of peace.
In the midst of this turmoil, let us do our utmost to build a new temple of peace. And springing from a broad foundation, may it lower—a lit and lasting monument to the ideals of the United States of America.
() America, to you comes the call in humanity's behalf. To you it is given by your example to hasten the day when the machinery and pomp of glorious war shall be cast aside. A great responsibility rests upon you. The prospects for delivering the death blow to militarism are tremendous. The survival or destruction of future generations depends upon what action we take, liven though Europe is bleeding almost to death. I (irmly believe that a World Tribunal for peace is probable within the next few years if. I say if. America sees her duty and remains the moral example of the world.
No one can produce a logical argument against the establishment of an International Tribunal. Vet the militarists condemn arbitration. Shall we say that it is impossible to arbitrate international disputes? Shall we execute a man for single murder and glorify nations for slaughtering millions? Shall the crime of man become the pride of nations? Must that awful voice of thunder. “Thou shall not kill" have a terrible meaning to the individual and signify nothing to nations? Must man revere and cherish his religion and states profane it? Oh why must man continue to lavish wealth and inventive genius upon implements of death and destruction?
It is the mission of America to answer these questions. It is her mission to show that Christian principle will accomplish more than any show of arms.
“Were all the power which fills the world with terror Where all the wealth bestowed on camps and courts Spent to redeem the human mind from error.
There were no need of arsenals and forts."
That America will fail to uphold her ideals I cannot believe. I have utmost faith in our nation whose people have successfully met every crisis as it has appeared. The struggles of the past must not have been in vain. The ideals and principles secured through storm and stress, sealed by our father's blood and hallowed by our mother's tears are the charters of our liberty.
“As long as other nations heed an example, as long as militarism and tyranny exist in any corner of the globe, so long shall America’s mission endure. It shall endure to advance the reign of law. to guard against large military estahishmenis and to usher in universal brotherhood. When this is accomplished, the epic poem of the race will be complete, the Star of the Last will again herald peace and goodwill, and the bugles of conscience will sound the truce of God.” Then over people and states, over kings and presidents will lloat that banner which is greater than any banner of blood and carnage the banner of Universal Peace. 1'hen will the joyful tongues of untold millions welcome the rising sun of a new day: man will stand up and say. “Peace and Prosperity are mine”: then will the crimes of the world be expiated and the Invincible Nation w ill have preformed her mission.

oao0 1Appreciation lUrrh
WEEK in November was set aside as Appreciation week; in all the schools throughout the state essays were written with North Dakota as the theme. A prize of ten dollars was offered by our school to the student writing the best essay. "The Passing of the Bonanza Farm" by Alma Simonsen was awarded the first prize.
An appreciation program was given in the Gymnasium. Friday, Nov. 19, when essays on different phases of North Dakota’s opportunities were read by the following people: Alma Simonsen, Oscar Youngquist, Sarah Skovholl and Marie Kuster. Appropriate music was rendered by the orchestra and Miss Bard we 11 sang a solo.
(Lite Passing of thr HloitaiiEU Jfarm
“The boundless prairie, as far as the eye could reach, was a vast field of waving green shimmering in the sunlight. This open solitude, sweeping out into unlimited space, was more like a great glimmering emerald sea. than a land that some day would be teeming with industries."
In these words an eyewitness pictures the North Dakota of 45 years ago. Today, the prosperous farmer, looking out upon the same prairie, sees it dotted with modern farm homes and shady groves, and criss-crossed by busy lines of railroad connecting towns and cities of wonderful development and a still more wonderful future. He hears, in their season, the clicking of the harvesters and the untiring hum of the threshing machines, gleaning the vast fields of waving grain that have replaced the emerald sea, and have gained for the Bed River Valley the undisputed title of " I he Nile alley of America.'
Many prejudices had to be overcome before North Dakota could gather within her borders the splendid people that have made her present development possible. Forty years ago. North Dakota was classed as part of the “Great American Desert."—an arid, uninhabitable waste, where only Indians and buffalo could exist. Men were not eager to trust their fortunes to such an inhospitable land: settlement was at a standstill.
To overcome these prejudices, the first bonanza farm was founded. It was financed by a group of railroad officials, and organized as a demonstration project to bring to the attention of a skeptical and indifferent world the opportunities of the Dakotas, and the fertility of Dakota soil. The manager chosen was a business farmer, and the results he obtained were astounding. The owners got publicity beyond their wildest hopes. Newspaper' from London to San Francisco turned the limelight on the 55.000 acre Dalrvmple farm, anil in so doing, discovered things about North Dakota that they had never dreamed of. Easterners did a little swift mental calculation, and decided to raise wheat at a cost of 30c a bushel on land which could be bought for a song, instead of raising it at a cost of §1.00 a bushel on high priced ami impoverished land. I he inward rush of settlers was like a tidal wave. Other bonanza farms were established, many larger than the tirst. lo an easterner, unaccustomed lo the big. breezy western way of doing things, anything over a section was a bonanza; the true westerner considered anything under 000 acres a small farm. Many of the well known bonanza farms ran into the tens of thousands of acres. As examples we might cite the Amenia-Sharon farm of jSooo acres: the Cooper I arm o! 24000 acres; and the Grandin farm of 61000 acres. One and all. they presented an ir-resistable challenge to the ambitious pioneer spirit.
So much of its mission tlu bonanza farm had accomplished—it had brought North Dakota to the attention of the world. It was to do more by developing the country and bringing it under cultivation: for the bonanza farmer commanded unlimited capital, and conducted all farm operations on a large scale, but the bonanza farm was doomed front the outset, simply because it followed the soil-robbing policy of cropping thousands of acres to wheat year after year without intermission. To illustrate: The production of
wheat in the valley countries increased from less than three million bushels in 1879 to sixteen million bushels in 1SS4—an increase of 600 per cent in live years.
Now. wheat is the natural pioneer crop, being productive, compact, and easily marketed. A grain growing period is found in the history of every new country,—the danger lies in continuing the period too long. Reduction of fertility and the introduction of noxious weeds invariably attend exclusive grain growing. The bonanza farmer trieel to remedy these evils by the summer fallow method,—an ineffective, wasteful plan at best. The small farmer found the real solution in crop rotation. For the small farm, rotation spells success; for the large farm, extinction. The small farmer rotates with his grain, forage crops and hay, and uses them on his own farm ; the large farmer cannot do so. because they are too bulky to be marketable, and cannot be used on his farm in such quantities as they would be produced, lie would waste half the acreage of his farm; and that, on a 50,000 acre farm, is no small matter. The bonanza farm was fundamentally unsuited to anything but the raising of wheat: and so. with the downfall of the exclusive grain growing system, came the downfall of the big farms. Gradually they disintegrated into the natural small farm units. The few large farms which remain today are going, or will go soon. Their day is over.
V'e have come today, then, to the era of the small farms. Their area ranges, on the average, from 160 to 640 acres. As one authority remarks, "640 acres is a convenient size for the average farmer. He can afford to buy the latest scientific machinery, and can work on a large enough scale to make his work worth while, retaining, at the same time, the advantages of the small farm. He can rotate his crops with regularity and effect, without wasting an acre of space. He can raise live stock to utilize his forage crops, and can give them the care they demand. Above all, he can maintain that direct personal supervision which is the basis of true success in farming.”
So, today, we find that the small farms are paying steady dividends 10 their owners, and making of them the prosperous citizens who are the backbone of the nation. Our state boasts two fundamental sources of wealth,—a soil unrivaled in fertility, and a people unexcelled in loyalty and true progressive spirit.
“We, in the heart of the basket filled with bread for all the world.
Are thanking the sun, and stars and rain, and radiant dews empearled.
For we arc the happy prairie folks, in a state of fertile soil.
And the bracing air, and the skies so fair, are good to the men who toil.
And whether the day be bright or gray, there’s a song of cheer in our hearts for aye.”

I IK most popular and mosi entertaining musical ensemble feature of the school is, undoubtedly, the school orchestra, composed of members of the band, with one exception, that of the pianist. Miss Oistad. Ihe orchestra either in conjunction with the chorus, or in special numbers, has always served to keep up the enthusiasm during the student assemblies. And how
could we ever have gone home from an all-school frolic, or even from a basketball game, if we hadn’t had just a few good turns of dancing? Of course the orchestra always furnished the music, cheerfully and gladly, because the organization not only entertains thereby. Inn is itself entertained.
The orchestra consisting of six pieces, violin, clarinet, cornet, trombone, drums and piano, was exceptionally fortunate in enlisting the services of Mr. Clifford Peterson, not onlv an excellent violinist and an able mainstay for the entire ensemble, but an accomplish-i-d soloist as well, lie comes from Wesley. Iowa, and was formerly with “Adair's Orchestra" of that city. His playing, together with that of his fellow musicians, has made the orchestra a "huge" success.
We sincerely hope for a larger and better organization, if such could be possible,
for next year.

"If credit be given where credit is due, it certainly must be given to the energy and enthusiasm of the conductor of the band. Mr. II. S. Warren, who has held this position for seven years, and each year with increased success. Not only is he a patient director and kind critic but a 'prince' as a man. one who is always willing to help anyone who is interested in the work that he is doing for the student and the school.” —Contributed.

a school organization this band has for some years held a leading place among similar musical organizations of the middle northwest. Ibis is especially remarkable since its ranks are largely tilled by students, usually numbering thirty-five or forty, who have been trained in a musician!)’ manner to a high grade of efficiency.
The band, as a permanent institution for the year is organized during the first school week in September and rehearsals begin immediately so that the band may play sufficiently well to give concerts during the football, and later, during the basketball season.
This year the band gave a concert in the “Bijou Theatre” in Fergus Kails to a packed house. I he concert was highly successful in every way and no greater praise could be given it than that of a prominent musician who said: "they played as one man."
It is the aim of the conductor of the organization to broaden the minds, in a musical way, of the men playing in the band. Consequently many of the standard overtures and selections are played during the year and at least three of them perfected.
This year the organization was exceedingly fortunate in having as solo clarinetist Mr. Elmo Koesler. During the summer of 1915 he toured with Cimera's Band of Chicago and is re-engaged for the coming summer, lie is a thorough musician and his work is of a very high class.
A special mention should be made of the following men whose faithfulness to the band ought not to be forgotten. Dallas Buscy, assistant solo clarinet, Ervin Van Burvn. lir.-t E flat bass, George llolthusen, trombone, Oscar Youngquist, baritone. Sylvan Kicland, horn, Paul Scwrey, drums.
By working exceptionally hard during the Spring term the band prepared their annual concert, the climax of the year and presented it upon the 4th of May. The concert was classical in every way and represented the best of what can be done by training young men who are willing to work.

IIK Y. V. C. A. is ihc one organization in school, in which all the common interests of the girls are united. The semi-monthly meetings held at 4:20 Thursday afternoons have proved wonderfully successful. The programs are instructive and educational. The aesthetic side of nature is studied by means of reproductions from famous painters. Freedom of thought and expression are encouraged and the girls leave the meetings with new ideas and a broader view of things in general.
The social side of this organization must not be omitted. Parties, picnics and teas are participated in. having always proved most enjoyable affairs.
The organization is designed to serve educational and religious needs and realize too the value of a good time, but the work goes beyond its immediate members and seeks to help those less fortunate ones. This part is especially noticeable. At Christmas time when a box was being prepared for the Children’s Home in Fargo, the girls showed their deftness in making the tiny dresses. The social life, physical development, educational and religious work of the Y. W. C. A. are all designed to promote the greatest of all virtues— Christian Charity. With this idea in view all the members work together that it may accomplish its end.
TUDKNT (iovernment as pertains to Burch Hall is an organization of the girls for their own benefit. The executive body is appointed by the girls and known as the Student Council. The six members are elected from the different departments as follows: President and N ice President from the College Department. Treasurer and Secretary from the Preparatory and the other two members from the Normal and Commercial Departments.
The purpose of Student (invernment is to acquire perfect self-control, the ultimate aim of all education. The student council although acting as a governing body does not merely take it upon themselves to maintain order but they must also see to the betterment of life in the Hall and aim to develope (thru their work) a sense of dignity and self respect that will be felt among the girls.
The system of government allho only in the third year of practice is strengthening and in a few years will be in a well organized and capable form.

ic;:i§. §. Athletics
Tl£ athletics instill a spirit of loyally and progressiveness into the student body of any school which actively support this phase of it activities. Altho it is a smaller school than most of its rivals, the State School of Science supports athletic teams which always make very creditable showings. In baseball and basketball our teams have consistently played close games with, and on several occasions has administered defeat to. the University of North Dakota. Our bitterest and fiercest rival the North Dakota Agriculture College, while they have more wins to their credit, has been given Several surprises by our different teams. Fargo College has also sulTered numerous defeats at our hands. In our contests with Jamestown College and the Normal schools at Valley City, Fllendale and Mavville, our teams have consistently shown their superiority, in all branches of athletics.
Altho field and track events have never received much attention here, the track meet held in June, brought to light some mighty fine material. All the events were well filled and remarkably good time was made on the track, lien Trieschel was the most successful point gainer with Louis Anderson and Lyal St. John close at his heels.
The excellent showing made in all these branches of athletics is primarily due to the ability and efforts of our athletic director and coach.
Van I. Ward graduated from Oberlin College in 1908. While in college he took active part in all branches of athletics and especially distinguished himself on the diamond. The following year he held the position of Athletic Director at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington, and in 1910 he held a similar position at Kalania oo College, Michigan.
Van I. Ward, 1908 St. Paul Central High School had the bene-
fit of his services in 1911-12 and in 1913 he came to the State School of Science. With very little material he has always successfully built up creditable teams. 11 is success is not merely due to his knowledge of his line hut also to his personality which contains that indescribable something which m ikes the fellows eager to do their utmost. Mr. Ward expects to return next year and •ill may rest assured that this guarantees the prestige of the 1916-17 S. S. S. Athletic teams.

Baseball Season 1915
UK 1915 Baseball season was a success from every point of view. This was the first year that Science was able to take the Indians into camp and do it consistently.
The material was scarce hut what there was of it was good. Ripperton played a stellar game in the infield and was a fiend at the hat. Bute, Ulsaker, and Trieschcl played a steady game and batted well. L'lness, the man with the “padded” milt was a "find” and hit the "pill” like a big leaguer. The outfield was fast and pulled the long ones in a masterly fashion. Sewrcy pitched in a promising manner and kept his head like a “vet” in the tight places.
The chief victory of the season was that over the "U” at Grand Forks. The boys out-did themselves and showed their real ability as ballplayers in a very forceful way.
Coach Ward’s knowledge and experience aided him greatly in turning out such a team. He taught the National game to green men and made real ballplayers of them. Considering the lack of material the team was excellent.

The second day after school opened Coach Ward issued a call for football candidates. In response, a hunch of green men and a few of last year's men appeared.

C. team was composed of veterans, who completely outweighed our boys. They won by a score of 3.4 to o. This did not dishearten the Science team because they had had
only a week's practice and could not expect to cope successfully with such a team as represented the A. C. With the memory of this defeat in their minds they began
to make ready for the game with Ellendale, which was scheduled for the following Friday. Ellendale always sends a strong team against Science, and all realized that
they must be on their mettle, if they wished to win. On Tuesday night 'Bip” Oilles, a star of former seasons, appeared for practice and this seemed to put heart into every
member of the team. Kn'i'Vl' ‘Bip” was recognized

defeat by a i 3-0 score. I'lie game was full of interest throughout. The Science team showed a very great change in form, which undoubtedly was due to the strengthened line-up. The chief features of the
game were the long runs by Gilles and the de-tense work of Anderson. On October 2?rd the team journeyed to Fargo for the annual clash with Fargo College. The game was called at 2 130. During ••i.kum" . the first quarter Ulsaker

The week following the Fargo College game the Indians came over to play and the contest was a very much one-sided affair which ended in a 68 to o victory for Science. Many second string men were used and some of them showed considerable promise. One of those, who showed special promise was Edgar Peterson, who will he a valuable man next year.
The game with Jamestown on Nov. 6th displayed the real strength of the Science team and showed the result of Coach Ward's work. Every man was ready for the contest, determined to "do or die." Jamestown had a strong team and came determined to wipe out the Hoodo that Science seems to hold over them.
They were heavier than our boys and during the preliminary practice it looked as though they would have a walk-away but the first few minutes of play removed any doubt from the minds of the spectators as to the final outcome of the game. Our boys were inviciblc and carried the ball across their opponents goal line five times before the final whistle blew. Jamestown was dangerous at all times but was not able to score and at the end of the game the score was to o.
This game was a fitting close for the seasons work and reflected much credit on Coach Ward for his untiring efforts and also on the team for their faithful work all fall. I he game with Valley City which was scheduled for the following Friday was cancelled and the football togs were stored away.

Two weeks after football season dosed, basketball started. There was a large squad out every night. Trieschcl, Anderson, and Sewrey, letter men from last year’s squad showed up and practice was full of vim and enthusiasm. Although there was not a wealth of material available, prospects for a winning team looked favorable. Sewrey was chosen as captain. He played on the team for the last two seasons and always gave a good account of himself. His experience and generalship stood him in good stead during the season and united the team in a very thorough manner.
The first game of the season was played at Park Region on December 19 at Fergus Falls. It ended disastrously for us but not much sleep was lost over this game, because the boys knew that they would have a ch tr.ee to even things up. when the Preachers came to play the return game.
The second game of the schedule was played with the University and we lost by a score of 20 to 9. The game was hard fought thru-out and was full of interest to the spectators. Of course we could not expect our boys to win from the old and more experienced University men and we must commend them one and all far their excellent showing.
The game, a few days later at Fargo, was won by the A. C. As they had the strongest team in the state and did not lose a game all season, the large score bv which they won did not dishearten our boys.
On January 21 Park Region came, expecting to win. To make a long story short, they were defeated by a large margin, ('lever lloor-work by Trieschcl and Anderson featured the contest and the basket-shooting of Ripperton was spectacular.
The following week the boys journeyed to Mayville and won by a score of 35 to 26.
A few days later the A. C. came to play the return game. Our boys went down to defeat once mare and the next night at Fargo, we lost to Fargo College by a score of 33 to 1 3.
On Feb. 15 Fllcndalc came, firmly resolved to carry home the bacon. I hey were strong and put up a scrappy game but Science was too much for them. Although Ripperton was not able to play on account of a sore foot. .Millard played a good game, and the team work was excellent. The Science team led through the whole game, but was hard pressed at times. The basket shooting of Sewrey and Millard was good as was the defensive w« rk of Anderson. Ortman and I rieschcl.
On the trip to Kllcndalc and Aberdeen, the following week, we won from Hllendale but lost to Aberdeen.
The best game of the season was played with Fargo College in the Science Gym. The game, which was fast from start to Finish, was full of suspense for the spectators. I he score was close throughout the whole game, first one team being in the lead and then the other. The leant work of Science lead by Sewrey, Anderson and Ripperton far outclassed
1 31AGAWASIE ■ ;
that of I’argo College, but their defense was very strong. They were lucky on long shots. At the end of the second half the score was tied and they proceeded to play live minutes to break the tie. By a lucky shot I’argo College made a Held basket and a few minutes later they dropped in a free basket. They held this lead until the end of the game. I he I'argo boys played a clean game and we do not consider it a disgrace to lose to them.
The season closed the following Tuesday, when our boys walloped Aberdeen Normal to the tune of 45 to 18.
Summing up the work of the team during the whole season, great credit is due each individual player. Capt. Sew rev at forward i an excellent and capable leader, lie played a fast game all season. Anderson at center was always the mainstay of the team and by his experience and cool judgment pulled the team out of many holes. I rieschel at guard played a steady, reliable game and followed the ball every minute, kipperton at forward, showed himsef to be a star. This was his first season as a regular and he certainly did fill his position like a veteran. Ortman played his lirst season at guard, lie acquitted himself admirably at all times. Besides being a consistent point-getter. Jack followed the ball and kept his man well in hand. .Millard and Lium, who played parts of the games, showed up well at all times.

Monday mornings and Wednesday evenings were set aside for the girls gymnasium elass. which was organized at the opening of the winter term, under the direction of Miss Miles. These girls became such adepts at acrobatic stunts that a special guard had t« !»«• stationed at the door to drive away the mobs of circus managers who were looking for the best along that line. They took to basket ball like a short horn docs to Ills animal turkey dinner and put up some mighty line article of hall, undoubtedly (nobody knows because sight see-ers were forbiddenl.

spite of the rival attraction at the opera house Mond y evening, the big Agnwasic Penny Carnival, given by the students of the Science School for the benefit of tho Agawasie. maintained its former successful record for fun. frolic and frivolity.
During the afternoon. Dakota avenue was lined with people anxiously awaiting the parade. It came along about four-thirty, and condition of tho roads was taken into consideration, it was lucky that it came at ail. Instead of a marching parade, as had been planned, it was necessary to load all the performers and other impediments into wagons and haul them around. The scarcity of wagons, and horses, forced the crowding of the participants into a small number of vehicles, which considerably shortened the parade. This crowding, however, resulted in concentrating the noise made by the youthful disturbers of the peace, and the effect was the same.
After getting a taste of the excitement, the crowd awaited impatiently for the evening, when the real show was to begin at tho gymnasium. About seven o'clock a crowd began to wend its way northward and before long the big gymnasium was packed.
The main lloor provided continuous scenes of mad merriment for three hours or more. George Hanson, very dignified in a white suit and a big white hat. was a most dignified master of ceremonies. Van Ward, as a spieler for Kastus the Coon. (Alias Doc Reed), scored almost as big a hit as any scored upon the person of his protege.
Clowns red. clowns black, and more clowns, cavorted gaily around the floor in the persons of Alex Ilippic. Morton Harff. and Walter Pehl. Bill Friedrichs, as Sandow. proved himself to he absolutely the strongest man in the northwest, while Prof. Millard delighted the eyes of admiring multitudes by amazing and mysterious feats of jugglery.
Barbara Kirkcy made several fortunes (we should say. told many fortunes.) with great success. Jim Powrie had his fortune told twenty-three times and by his reckless scattering of pennies proved himself to he a true Scotchman.
Perhaps the show that made the biggest hit was the dancing act pulled off by Misses Rose l.ipovsky, Julia Williams. Anna Braun. Florence Wright. Marie Henry and Allie Knutson, and the warbling notes of Milliccnt Morse. The portion of the show devoted to their activities was crowded at each performance, and many were the favorable remarks heard from the spectators after seeing the show.
The Kangaroo Court always managed to find plenty to do. as the crowd was more or less boisterous at all times. Prof. McMahon acted as judge, and being in a prominent position, got hit by everything from an indoor baseball to a sixteen pound shot. He is expected to recover. No desperate, daring evil deer could escape the clutches of the efficient police force. Dike all up-to-date institutions, the Carnival management this year added a woman cop to the force, which consisted of Max Cameron. Lee Byerly and Helen Shea. A big rough fellow tried to break up the carnival but was finally overpowered, the militia coming to the aid of the cops. He had a tough Irish face, gave the name of "Dooley." and was sentenced to pay $5.00 and the costs of the war.
In another location. Hazel Walter told more fortunes and collected another peck of Powric’s pennies.
Thousands of thirsty throats were grateful for the timely help of M a Della Quick. Hattie Shaw and Lillie Knutson, who dispensed soft drinks to hard customers all evening. Lawrence Kaiser, presiding over the Grand Chute, saw many a portly citizen risk his life. Basil Farr was the trainer of the most multifarious menagerie over seen within the limits of Wahpeton.
Mr. Robert Barber, one of the multitude, was particularly interested in the Chamber of Mysteries, presided over by Selmer Myhre. The mystery was that he got away with his watch. Helen Rippcrton. as Xorah. the Irish Dancer, did great honor to the ould soil, and pleased the crowd.
Those who were bewildered by the whirling wheel on the main floor descended to greater delights in the depths below. After partaking of delicious coffee and assorted eats served by Mae Wright and Ida Hodgson, the crowds proceeded to the booth where Pal Rippcrton as Muldoon and Ben Treschel as the Nigger kept them in continuous uproars of laughter. From there they went to another booth where Bernstein and Firestein entertained.—Globe-Gazette. April 13.

UK Members of the Board were going to settle this, Init our watchword is safety first: so wo decided to put it to a vote of the students. If the result don’t suit you. don’t blame us. We were forced to how to the decision of the majority.
1. Who is the best looking girl?
Anna Braun won this over Kuth Walter by three votes. Miss Zuill voted for Anna because: “When you look at her face you can just see the wheels going around inside.”
2. Who thinks she is?
The vote on this office was so scattered that the Board could not pick a winner. It seems as though every girl and every fellow had a pet aversion to vote for. We didn't dare print them all for fear of being mobbed.
3. Who is the best looking fellow?
This was a neck and neck race between Byerly and Hanson. Byerly led by two votes until Morehart remembered Hanson’s cute little pompadour, and then he changed his vote and made it a tie. Louie was a close third, in spite of the fact that Millie's electioneering pulled down some extra votes for Lee.
4. Who thinks he is?
Pehl and Farr split fifty-fifty on the feminine vote. The boys all voted for Krnest, feeling instinctively that he was entitled to the honor.
5. Who is the most popular girl?
Alma Simonsen won this, but Ragna and Rosie, who tied for second felt that she had an unfair advantage because she had a chance to smile on the shorthorns when she passed the ballots.
6. Who thinks she is?
We did not know what a commotion this would cause. If we told on the winners we might lose our stand-in at Burch Hall so we are going to keep it strictly on the Q. 'I.
7. Who is the most popular fellow?
This contest nearly broke up the meeting. For a while it looked as though Louie was going to carry off first honors, but finally Wallie and Leo voted for Hanson because he was from Breckcnridgc, and turned the tide in his favor, l unny-face voted for himself seven times.
8. Who thinks he is?
Quinn and Farr started with a promising lead, but Doc Reed soon out-distanced both of them. It was felt that he had gained more in this respect since he joined us than either of his rivals.
9. Who is the biggest fusser?
John Tribkc had a clear run. everybody realizing that it was useless to oppose him. Miss Miles voted four times. Farr and Byerly made half-hearted efforts to redeem their reputations, but even Lee’s attachment to the Burch Hall davenport could not balance John's devotion. Everybody felt that he was Quick-cr at the game than anyone else.
10. Who would like to be?
Bolme pulled down quite a few votes on this, the voters remembering the dance he went to. Otherwise the vote was sadly scattered.

11. Who is the biggest prevaricator?
This caused a never-to-be forgotten race between Gully and Quinn. The Wolf Hall contingent voted solid for Gully, but some people remembered in time some of the whoppers John calls Jokes, so he just missed the victory by one vote.
12. Who would like to be?
Roy Reed was in the lists for this prize and pulled down the votes in a most gratifying fashion. Quinn was a strong second in the contest.
13. Who is the faculty pet?
This was very exciting; for a long time Louis led, for everybody remembered he was the only fellow Proxy would trust with his Ford. I lowcvcr Anna Peterson was the final winner, her cute little brogue being irresistible.
14. Who would like to be?
Those who failed to vote in the proceeding contest got busy and elected Anna for this one too. Ben Tricschel came second, some people remembering his extreme popularity in the realms of Domestic Science.
15. Who is the toughest guy?
Fat Peterson won this by a landslide vote. Some people voted twice for him to be sure he got it.
16. Who is the nicest lady?
Ida Hodgson won this by the skin of her teeth. The feminine Rip came next, having supposedly imbibed some of her lady-like qualities from her roommate.
17. Who is the biggest knocker?
This was a very difficult question: but it was finally given to Luick because the school felt that he was entitled to some publicity, and thought that this lilted him as well as anything else. A few deserted the straight ticket and voted for their own choice. These were about equally divided between Ripple and Celia Carroll. Ripple had a slight lead on account of his long experience and artistic methods.
18. Who is the worst grouch?
A few independent spirits in Burch Hall voted for THE HOUSE PRESIDENT. The rest were too scared to vote.
i ). Who is the biggest gossip?
Ivy Swank won this in a walk-awav. This decision is no doubt mainly due to her ability to furnish such quantities of material to fellow gossips by her fussing propensities. Rosie was also a candidate for this office but she had to retire before Ivy's talents and opportunities for acquiring the latest.
_ 20. Who is the biggest bluffer?
T his was a close race between Gully and Helen Ripperton. Helen’s claims to this office lay in those big Irish eyes, which can look so innocent when stabbing wildly at the answer to a

question or when she has just eaten the carrot she was supposed to draw. Gully won this contest by one vote, however, because of his ability to get away with it.
21. Who is the most ambitious person?
This was not very exciting. S phus Bolme captured it without much effort. Inn a few sarcastic individuals voted for .Max Cameron.
22. Who is the biggest grind?
I'riedcrichs and Bolme tied for first honors, with Skovholt at their heels. We know of several who were terribly disappointed in not winning this.
23. Who does the most for the school?
This was a stiff race between the Janitor and the Agawasie staff. We would hate to admit the final outcome.
24. Who is the cutest girl?
.Marie Henry and Florence Wright had a neck and neck race but .Millard's active campaigning spelled defeat for the (W)right one.
25. Who is the most bashful?
Busey got this by an overwhelming majority. But we feel that something must be radically wrong, for if the voters saw what we saw one lovely evening they would have voted quite differently. We are sure he would have qualified for the biggest fusscr.
26. Who is the best looking member of the faculty?
Prexy and Prof. McMahon both declared their candidacy for this honor but the voters were not so easily misled. The real race was between the feminine members and was so close that we hated to publish the result.
27. Who is the youngest member f the faculty?
Again personal opinions clashed but this time everyone, except those who couldn't forget to be sarcastic, cast their votes for either Miss Oistad or Miss Quick. This made such a close race that we would hesitate in announcing the result were it not that we are able to kill two birds with one breath and proclaim .Miss Oistad as the youngest and prettiest faculty member.
28. What faculty member has the prettiest hair?
The board members hoped that this might result in a hair pulling contest or some other fitting climax to the days activities. But a sad disappointment was due us. Madame Irony o successfully controlled the ballots that there was no hair to be pulled, due to the fact that the winner's hair is most conspicuous because of its absence.

N a Bute of a morning in May. a couple of Granbois went for a Stroehl with two co-eds,—one with eyes of Hazel, and one with eyes of Braun. Their Ruddy cheeks showed that they were Karlv Rciser(s). The air was Bolme, and there was not a Ripple on the surface of the water: so they rowed Karr
down the river. .Miles away they came to a Marsh, where they almost ran
into a Stone, which was hidden by Reed(s). When they got to Rieland they left the boat,
and near the Mills they found a Rose and a Kern growing among sweet-Williams. They
picked the Dewey llowers and put them in a Bagg: and the girls Rindall kinds of flowers on their White dresses. One said, "I could Lval day and listen to the Carroll of the birds; but the Fleets in my skirt would be crushed."
Now their lunch became Hefty to Carrie: Prior to this time they had not noticed its weight. They found a shady box-Hider in a deep Gully; and there the boys opened the Popp bottles and let the girls make the Hgg(e) sandwiches, dish the Rice and Pehl the fruit.
Then one of them went down to the river: he called. Come, B. Quick! The boat is gone! Really I am in Krnest. Some Redman must have taken it.” Then the girls began Weling, and the boys looked Moody and Mumm and Nash-ed their teeth. But by a Lokke chance a one-horse Shea was passing by, and. Haiin(g) it. they finally rode down the Allie to the Temple of learning just at the Wright time for their eight o'clock class.

jORTIFIKD by our many-sided experience in gelling oui ihe present publication. we feel we arc qualified lo advise our successors. We feel lhai if our predecessors had left us some such pointers, we should have been saved untold mistakes, unmeasured heart-aches, and unlimited worry.
First.'—begin early. Establish a correspondence between prospective college students several years beforehand. Fleet your editor and other officers. Then maybe by Christmas of the year the Annual appears, you will be ready to start work.
Second make all the Junior College Department members of the staff. This may save petty jealousies, and it may not. We offer the advice for what it is worth. Then get half a dozen individuals with iron constitutions and no scruples, and get busy. You’ll have to do it ultimately anyhow.
I bird—obtain the following equipment:
i double barreled shotgun.
i Krupp 42 cm. mortar.
6 Colt’s automatic revolvers.
5 six-inch Spanish stilettos.
1 grindstone for above.
1 fountain pen.
1 bottle ink
100 reams writing paper.
1 professional photographer.
6 .Maxim Silencers.
1 box toothpicks.
1 carton chewing gum.
With this equipment, you ought to be able to get at least one per cent of your work done on time. Some items might be added, but this is the list of staple necessities.
The shotgun and Krupp should be left in charge of the editor, who should remain in the office so that in case he sees any of the staff in difficulties on the campus, he can help them out. The shotgun may be useful in short range lighting, but it has the disadvantage that it makes the blood spatter too much. The shots also scatter and mutilate the woodwork. Ihe revolvers will be useful, if given out to committee members, to extract subscriptions. induce the unwilling to have their pictures taken, and get the people to turn in copy. The daggers are to be used when you do not wish to call attention to yourself. Sandbags will be of assistance in separating the stenographer front a prospective date.
The number of pencils may seem excessive, but you will find they melt away like Ihe dews of evening, to reappear in unexpected places. Frasers should be suspended by a string from the chandelier, otherwise much artistic profanity will be wasted in searching for one when the typewriter makes a period upside down. Ihe Maxim Silencers will be

an expensive but worth-while investment to curb a natural tendency to hen over matters better left unhenned. The toothpicks will serve the traditional use as props for heavy eyelids. (Don't worry, you’ll need them.) Chewing gum will be found a necessity it stimulates the imagination and a flow of genius. Sometimes its presence saves a serious strain on the vocabulary when things go wrong.
Fourth—you will have to got an office with strong locks on doors and windows. We add the humble suggestion that a parlor be provided in which tc entertain visitors, so as not to interrupt work in the office. Also, since the board will probably spend all their time there anyhow, permanent quarters might as well be provided with a cafeteria in connection. so board members need not go home except for an occasional social call.
Next, install a burglar-proof safe in the office, and lock up in it all the Annuals from various institutions, which you have begged, borrowed, or stolen from unsuspecting friends. Nothing short of a steel safe will prevent the board from spending the first two months hunting up acquaintances and weeping over mummified jokes contained in the perpetrations of former would-be editors.
When you have obtained these minor accessories, you will be almost ready to begin real work. You will probably reject our advice, feeling your own projected plan is better. In such case, we can only leave you to your fate, and drop a tear and a dandelion on your grave.

And now the spring has come again My HKhkI it fairly noils
To drop this bloomin' hustling And sit me down to rest;
And do what in my little mind It seems is for the best.
I want to buy a hammock.
And hang it ’neath a tree.
And read a Cosmopolitan Just for frivolity.
I’m going to ditch my theories,
I'm going to lire my books.
I'm going to loaf and sleep and eat, And patronize the cooks.

ITU plenty of green material but no old timers back to show ’em the steps, the Science School Damsels developed a team this year which could hold its own with the best in the Northwest. We have been given the high honors of selecting from the numerous candidates an All Star aggregation whose stellar performances the past season have attracted the most attention and created the most gossip.
Cfntkk—Barbara. Her presence strengthens the whole line. She plays the game in a fearless and impressive manner but always manages to keep Bus(e)y.
Guards—Ruth and Marii;. Both know the fine points of the game and are faithful and dependable to the last.
Tackles—-Madi-lla. Her experience gives her first choice.
Ai.i.ii.. Inexperienced but she is learning the game fast her future career will be worth watching.
Exds—Mazki. and Mabi.k. They're small but very clever at the game.
Halfbacks—Jui.ia and Rosi-:. A good team, both experienced and fast at the game— they let very few get away from them.
Fullback—Fat Ripperton. At line smashing—a ripper—ton is heavy enough. Her progress has been spectacular.
Quarterback—Mili.y. An excellent field general—due to her long experience in handling men.
This is the first team—all regulars. There is a long list of “substitutes” who have expended all their efforts, not without results hut whose careers have not proved as dazzling as those of our picked array of All Stars. While most of these star performers leave us this year, there will be a sufficient number back to furnish the nucleus of a squad which can guarantee that 1916-17 will see the S. S.
