I issued a call for students to come together on Sept. 22, 1903. Only a few came at first, for of course they did not know me. Then, too, the young people did not reyli e then as much as they do now, how much broader and better their lives become, if they obtain a good education. Nevertheless, during those first years the faculty was kept busy in purchasing equipment, in making plans for the future, and in teaching the numerous courses that were offered. Very few schools of-my size have furnished intellectual food of such variety and quality as I have placed before my students each year. They appreciated it, too, and told others about me.
I was christened the Academy of Science, but I have since been allowed to call myself the State School of Science. As you will notice in my seal, the initial letters also stand for System, Science, Service. ft
At first I had to rent rooms. That is always a trying experience with a large family. I was so glad when my financial managers purchased the large brick binding from the Red River Valley University. Then a Mechanical Building of cement blocks was erected. Here the boys learned to use the lathe and the forge. An addition was made to this building in 1909, which was at first used for a gymnasium. The boys and girls used to have some gay times there! The heating plant, for all the buildings, has been a great improvement on the early days of stoves, when, in snowy weather, the girls’ long dresses froze to the floor.
I certainly felt proud when those three buildings of Hebron brick were completed!
I had needed them so much. Burch Hall is used for the young women’s dormitory, for a dining-room for all students, and for rooms for the sewing and cooking classes. Many times have I been hostess in this building to visitors from near and far, whether they came in groups or singly, whether they were men and women of low or high degree, they all seemed to be greatly pleased with my entertaining. There was an added flavor to the food when served by students who, under my instruction, had learned to do things in a proper manner. Many of these girls have since carried on the good work in homes and schools elsewhere.
I he Chemistry building has provided plenty of room for laboratory work in Chemistry and Agriculture—live subjects in this day and age.
My gymnasium is without question the finest in the state. Hundreds of boys
and girls, both old and young, have found pleasure and profit in it. There is ample space here for basketball games and indoor meets, for parties and for concerts (O, the fine bands and orchestras I have had!), for lectures and classes and even for a dwelling place for faculty members.
All of my buildings situated on my campus of thirty acres of land, are not all of the State School of Science. These are my physical being. My spirit dwells in many states and in lands across the sea. The young men and women whom I have taught to use their heads and their hands to advantage, have now become scientific citizens of many kinds: farmers- electricians, mechanics, teachers, lawyers, physicians, nurses, missionaries, musicians, architects, diatitians and many homemakers; all these are really a part of me. I have done much to make Them what they are. I am still young. I hope to do much more.
"Rah. rah, rah, Da-ko-ta.
Flickertail, Science School, Rah, rah, rah.” —Lilian Mirick.
ANY people will tell you that I first came into existence in 1903. In fact, that was the first year that I had a local habitation and a name. My spirit, however, had been hovering over the prairies for fourteen years, ever since provision was made for my existence by a clause in the state constitution which was adopted in 1889.—

Mabel TronsgardSenior Rhymes
Give to us kind friends your attention. While each of the Seniors we mention; They're a witty young bunch.
Let me give you a hunch,
So your time will be worth its retention.
Adelaide Burnson is our leader,
She’s a scholar as well as a reader;
She is fine in Education,
French, Trig., and Declamation.
It is mighty hard to beat her.
For her books Cecelia Berndt is courageous: Vet, whenever our work doth engage us.
To hunt for a book That some one else took.
She finds something else to assaugc us.
We know a girl named Emma Schneider: F.veryone is slow beside her.
In her studies she's a shark,
She is bound to make her mark.
And failure will ne’er betide her.
There is a young maid called Marie As bright and as sweet as can be.
She is quiet and sedate,
To class never late.
Her equal we never did see.
A modest young chap is Paul Wiig.
At his studies he always doth dig.
In class lie's a wonder.
For he ne’er makes a blunder.
And leaves with a mark that’s quite nig.
Mildred Smith is our bass drummer.
In her studies she’s a hummer.
She loves to chase the basket-ball,
Up and down around the hall,—
All things good arc expected from her.
To ride in a Ford is sure fate
When to classes it makes you come late;
But Miss Olson repented And Miss Clark relented So now she is doing first rate.
PAGE FOURTEENSenior Rhymes
We know a hoy called Conrad Ness. He's a good one you must all confess In studies, music, and basket-ball.
In disposition, looks and all— lie’s a “humdinger” and nothing less.
If you haven’t a car to keep stored, Bring Meuer a few nails and a board, Four spools and a can.
Some tin and a pan,
And he will construct you a Ford.
Of all the girls whom I have seen Bertha is the one who reigns supreme.
Her stories are exciting-
(There’s always blood and lighting),
And in sewing class she is a regular queen.
We have one more maiden to mention.
She is one who attracts much attention; From Colfax she hails And hack to it sails,
And teaching, will draw her own pension.
Mabel I’ronsgard is our future pedagogue. She will he a leader but not a demigogue. She’s as lively as a cricket.
Always happy, never wicked,
She will teach the three K's and the de-cagogue.
Olga Folstad with the deep blue eyes In whose bright orbs a deep shadow lies.
Is a fusser and a worker.
Not a dreamer or shirker,
She will reach the goal, and take the prize.
In us you can now place reliance
For the course we have finished at Science.
We are ready to work
And never once shirk,
For we arc Alumni of Science.

The Department of SCIENCE-ARIS-LDUCAI ION comprises three lines of work as mentioned in its name. In it are grouped all those subjects taught in the State School of Science that arc not strictly vocational in their nature. On this account it is the largest department in the School and its subjects form the backbone of the various curricula offered in the regular semesters.,AGA ASIESg3
PACK EIGHTEEN . Agricultural Department
HE Agricultural course is organized along vocational lines. However, the student is given enough other studies to give the cultural development to enable him to meet his fellows on an equality, either in the business or social VO? j worlds. The department i not sa large but that a student can be given a great deal of personal attention and bis individuality considered and developed. Work is given in text books, supplemented by laboratory and field work.
In the laboratory, agricultural objects are closely and carefully studied. Held trips are taken to various farms to study their systems of operation and the reason for their success or failure. In this way the course is made as valuable as possible.
There is no course taught in the Science School that is of more practical value to the average North Dakota boy than the course in Agriculture.
I'AGK NINKTKKNIll. Home Economics Department
Professor Forkner Assistant Professor Coffing
WO and ten years ago, our State Board of Regents brought forth in our | | School a new department, conceived by the idea, and dedicated to the prop-
osition that all girls should be good homemakers. Then we were engaged in great discussion whether that department or any department so conceived and so dedicated could long endure. We are met after twelve years of successful experience. We have come to dedicate a portion of this book in appreciation of home-making education. It is altogether lining and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense we cannot estimate its value to the individual, we cannot measure its worth to the community, we cannot forctclll the extent of its influence on the homes of tomorrow.
The former students, homemakers or otherwise, have proved its worth far above our poor power to add or detract. The girls may little note nor long remember what we tench here but they can never forget the school influence. It is for us rather to be dedicated to the unfinished work which they who realized the importance of good homes to the nation, have thus far so nobly advanced. It is for us to be dedicated to the great task remaining before us, that from this knowledge we take increased devotion to that phase of education which has long been overlooked or underestimated, that we here highly resolve that girls so educated shall not have been Educated in vain and that this type of training shall have a place of greater importance in the field of learning and that education of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
H'ilb apologia to Abraham Lincoln.
PACE TWENTYIV. Engineering Department
Professor Riley Assistant Professor Mapes Instructor Ness
HE engineering curriculum has been planned to serve two purposes. The first of these—and for the present perhaps the more important of the two—is to provide a course which will lit a man. upon its completion, to go out and deal with the engineering problems ordinarily met with in rural communities: the handling of the machinery of the farm, garage, small factory, the
electrical generating or distribution systems; the second, to provide fundamental training necessary to lit a young man to enter some special branch of engineering, if he desires to continue his training for the professional engineering degree.
Espccialy during the winter months, the Engineering Building fairly bristles with activity. One going past gains inspiration from the young men coming and going, clothed with greasy overalls. The noises that come forth are full of mystery to the student who does not take part in their making. At times large quantities of white smoke pour forth from the doors and windows and we are told that one of the boys had succeeded in starting a motor that he has himself taken apart and put back together. It is not hard to distinguish the student who has accomplished this great work, for he fairly radiates when he comes over to Burch Hall for dinner.
The interior of the Engineering Building is full of wonderful things to the students of the departments. The main entrance of the Engineering Building is in the machineshop, where a number of lathes and other machines for the cutting of iron are located. Back of the machine shop is the forge shop, noted as a smoky, dirty place where the young engineer burns his lingers and raises blisters on his hands trying to learn to make a weld by sticking two pieces of red hot iron together. Back of the machine and forge shop is a large space used for the tractor and auto shop. Here are located several makes of automobiles, tractors, and trucks of various kinds and ages. Some of these machines are in a running condition and are occasionally seen, after they have been overhauled, making trial trips around the oval. Many of the other machines consist of separate gasoline engines, rear axles and other parts of automobiles, tractors, and trucks.
The wood shop is located next to the tractor and auto shop, and is probably the cleanest place in the building- Here the future engineer is taught the handling of wood in all of its various branches. Adjacent to the wood shop, the old diawing room has been remodeled to make a modern automativc electric shop. This is the newest addition to the Engineering department. It consists of several complete starting-lighting systems, various kinds of magnetos, coils, switches etc. It is well tquiped and really something of credit to the college.
. Business and Commerce Department
Professor Rank Miss Walton Miss Inker
INCK the organization of the State School of Science a department for the teaching of commercial subjects has been maintained. Two main courses are covered. Commerce and Secretarial work, each covering the regular secondary school work in three years, and continuing into the Junior College for two years. One hundred and twenty hours are required for graduation from the secondary curricula and 44 hours from the Junior College curricula. Short courses are open to students without the standard entrance requirements—one in
shorthand and one in business, and a Winter Term. Another course is also open for high school graduates, covering one year.
A student of ordinary intelligence, graduating from our courses in Commerce, or Secretarial work, in the Junior College, should be able to go into the business world and, with a year or more of adjustment to conditions there, be able to handle the most difTicult managerial, secretarial, or administrative job; and rank shoulder to shoulder with men and women already there from the best schools of the land. The work given is scientific, broad, and thoro and is in the hands of instructors who rank with the most able in the profession.
An outline of the two courses offered in the Department, together with the descriptions of the various courses, may be found in the annual catalog.The J jb ra ry

Should you ask me where the pupils Go straight to the Readers' Guide—
Of the School of Science gather, That points out the page and chapter.
When they seek the words of wisdom, That will tell you magic stories
When they seek the books of knowledge? Men of recent times are telling:
I should answer, I should tell you, "Come with me into the building.
To the tallest, biggest structure On the School of Science campus.
To the north side of this building, Where the Northwest wind Kecwaydin, And the North, Kabibonokka,
Play around the window sashes.”
Here one day a maiden Cometh,
Said her life was not worth living.
For she could not give the answers When her teachers asked her questions.
Then an older maiden answered: "Many moons have I been coming To the book-room of the students. Wondrous things I’ve found within it,
All about the Jap:
Who can’t have the isle of Yap;
When the airplanes like to race;
Einstein's idea of time and space;
How the doctors change a face;
1 low to sew and to bake;
I low to use the garden rake;
How Betelgucusc can be measured;
How the radium grains arc treasured; Doings of the world and nation;
Banks and trade and recreation;
Church and school and picture plays; Printing-press and poets’ lays;
Should, perchance, your search prove fruitless.
Ask the one who tends the store-house.
She, the symbols, will interpret.”
Who’s Who books, fine books for reference. Then the maidens and their brothers
Where the names of braves are listed And the deeds they have performed.” "Tell me,” said the sad maid, "tell me. May I once again be happy,
May I find those facts of history And statistics that so haunt me?”
"Yes, indeed,” her sister told her. You’ll find many things besides these If you do as I direct you.
From the prairies and the forests,
From the land of the Dakota’s,
From the Minnehaha country.
All were glad that valued treasure.
Giving them much greater power,
Giving them much greater pleasure,
Could be theirs just for the asking,
Could be theirs if they would take it.

Professor 'Brown for the men Professor Forkner for the women
IK Slate School of Science has the best gymnasium in the State. There is a large basket ball court, with a track in the gallery. There are 20 other rooms fitted up for basketball, handball, wrestling, boxing, lockers, showers, toilets, store rooms, student organizations, and music headquarters.
The idea of physical education is to developc the physical side of the that they may be healthy and remain so. The aim is to give development to all the students, instead of all excessive training to a select few. Competitive games are played with other neighboring higher educational institutions in North Dakota, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Games are arranged between various groups in the school whenever possible. We have teams in football, basketball, and baseball.
Our Athletes for 1920-21. who received the honorary "S” in football are:

PACK TWKNTY-FIVKThe Student Cabinet
Sometime during the first of December, 1920, President Brickcr invited a few students into his office and explained to them the plan for a Student Cabinet. The purpose of the cabinet is to afford an avenue thru which the President of the School may keep in closer touch with the desires and asperations of the student body, and thru the Cabinet keep the student body better informed as to the administrative policy of the School. The President also explained that the Cabinet might become the medium, at a later date, for a plan of student self government with appropriate responsibilities. The students who consulted with the President on the subject approved heartily of the plan, and the following lirst six students were appointed as members, and later—Jan. 5. 1920—the last four students were appointed as members of
The President's Student Cabinet.
Helen llairc Adelaide Burnson Olga Polstad Cecelia Bcrndt Michael Peterson
Conrad Ness Lester Landes Francis Thompson Frank Stone Stella Smith
It soon developed that there was a real place for the Cabinet in the affairs of the School. Social affairs of the student body, as, a School party, a dance, a skating party, start with the favorable action of the Cabinet, either originated by the Cabinet or suggested to it. Then the matter is referred to the Deans. If the proposed affair also receives the approval of the Deans, they at once appoint a committee of students to arrange for and have charge of the proposed social function.
Other matters of general School and student interest may come before the Cabinet, where these things arc discussed with the President of the School.
»»ACK TWKNTV-SIXThe Orchestra met a few times for practice during the first weeks in February and was under the direction of Mr. Franklin J. Rice of Staples, Minn. However, the interest lagged and only a few meetings for practice were held, when the efforts to have an orchestra were given up till the first of April, when Professors Halsey and Forkner took charge.
Twelve students took up the orchestral work with enthusiasm and earnestness, and the organization soon became a credit to the School.
Altho some of the members were amateurs, they progressed rapidly. Mildred Smith and Anthony Mcucr volunteered to play drums in spite of the fact that they had had no training along this line. Under the direction of Professor Halsey, they soon became quite proficient. The Orchestra not only furnished music for Assembly and School programs, but also for the Commencement Exercises.

PACK TWENTY SEVENScience School Chorus
During the second week of school the Science School Chorus was organized by Miss Dennis and the following officers were elected: President Luella Olson, Secretary Helen llaire, Miss Coifing played the accompanim nts. There was a gratifying large attendance of both boys and girls. Everyone seemed to be interested and very enthusiastic and the future of the chorus looked rosy and promising.
After Christmas the boys dropped out so the chorus was reorganized for the girls alone. A number of good women's choruses were obtained, and the girls, under the supervision of Miss Dennis, worked up several very pretty numbers. Hazel Burnson played the accompaniments at the piano.
The Triple-S Literary Society had n meetings during the first part of the year. However, meetings were begun in March, and, as all students are members and all are expected to appear on the program, a few good literary programs were presented. The exercises of the Society were presented at the regular School Assembly on alternate weeks.
The officers for this year are: President, Mildred Smith; Secretary, Hazel Burnson; Treasurer, Frances Lawson; Misses Davis and Baker are the Faculty Advisors.
On October 5th. 1920, Miss Francis Perry, Secretary of the North Central Field Committee of the Y. W. C. A., came from Minneapolis to help us organize our Y. V. C. A. While she was with us, those of the Y. W. C. A. of 1919-20 who had returned, gave an informal tea in her honor and in honor of Miss Hall, who was here for the purpose of organizing a Y. W. C. A. at the Indian School. Both Miss Perry and Miss Hall gave us interesting talks, telling us about other Young Womens’ Christian Associations and the conference at Lake Okabojii. Punch was served by Miss Helen llaire.
On October 6th we organized. The following were elected officers:
The Chairmen of the various committees were also elected at this time.
On November 6th, the first regular meeting was called for the purpose of observing “China Day,’’ at which a good program was rendered.
Other meetings were held: an informal meeting December 7; a “Thrift" meeting January 4th; and a “Kid” meeting January 9, at which time the girls came attired as “Kids”. The final meeting occured Feb. 3.
