S Ifj lfl m PAGE NINETEEN =5 r fhe AG A WAS I E THE SENIORS OF ’23 Past, Present, and Future UK Senior Class of 23 is the largest that has been graduated from the Junior College Department of the Sift tc School of Science. This class feels proud not only of its quantity but also of its quality, for the ten members have participated in all activities of the school during their two years’ work. At the beginning of the year, when the stern voice of Duty called us back to school, the first call was for football men. Three of our Senior boys won places on the squad and worked hard throughout the season. In basketball our class was equally loyal and again three of our members supported Coach Barnard and his winning team. Two of our girls, equally willing in spirit, enthusiastically went in for basketball; but, although the spirit was willing, the flesh was weak, and they confined their support to the side lines. The Class entered with equal zeal into musical and literary circles. Several of our Class were members of the orchestra and two of our girls have many times entertained all with their delightful piano and vocal solos. The Literary Club of ’22 had many successful entertainments under thcguidancc of one of the members of this Class. This ycarou social affairs have been few but “Peppy” and Harold has become the claimant for high honors as a Swedish comedian. In these affairs the girls displayed their culinary art rather than any literary accomplishments. With all these activities scholarship has not been neglected. It is true that, in order to do this, we have many times “burned the midnight oil " and “crammed” for that final. W’c have in our Class twoof the most brilliant students in the college department. At the Penny Carnival of 'll one of the smallest members was drawn into the mystic realm of the unknown spirits. She tells the story thus: “Finally I prevailed upon this sccrcss to lend her aid in foretelling the destiny of this Class of ten, for whom Fate’s horoscope indicates a brilliant future. “As she went into a deep trance the room became darker, and all objects became indistinguishable, except a shining wheel of silver and black. As this wheel slowly began to turn, a strange voice was heard. I was able to catch these words: “ ‘Paul W’iig, “Doc,” is an eminent biologist and lias been given the highest honors in the scientific world. I also sec a beautiful girl approaching, but the vision fades.’ “ ‘Julia Squires, our jewel, who, before she graced our Alma Mater with her presence, was known as the “Lady of Many Kes- rj i i i PA°K TWENTYThe AGAWASIE I i creations,” ’ 1 faintly heard, ‘Commissioner of Kducation.’ I gasped and the voice continued, ‘No, that is of the past. I see now a dear little cottage where happiness reigns.’ “Then the wheel stopped and the sccrcss motioned me to her. ‘Listen, the successor of Galli-Curci.’ I recognized the voice of Ariel Bassett who formerly had so often sweetened our days with her golden voice. “It took a long time for the wheel to start; then I heard the low voice again, ‘Harold Myhra, who is an eminent lawyer and a wit of the New York clubs, has just given his first campaign speech by radio.’ I wanted to shout, ‘Mike for President!’ “It was then that the room began to get light, and 1 had to listen closely to catch the words, ‘Arnold Bjornson, the ablest thinker of the day’__“Ces”, who in his early days at Science showed a desire to be the Conductor on the Mentality Line. “In the lightened room my face showed the disappointment I felt, for there were other classmates that I was eager to leran about. Then a hand drew back a curtain, revealing five tiny stars. As I looked, the first slowly unfolded and I read: ‘Gerald Smith, “Arch,” His unruffled amiability is characterized by his profound ambition to be always accessible to manly aspirations. His philanthropic works arc known throughout the land, and his name brings happiness to many homes.’ “The second star unfolded. Under this sign I saw Dorothy Sprung, honored for her intellectual ability and inspiring all her listeners with her remarkable genius as a pianist. “The next star opened with a quick movement and in startling newspaper headlines 1 saw, ‘Coach Ness produces a Winning Team. Harvard Defeats Yale.’ “The fourth star opened unusually bright and luminous. ‘What’s this,’ I cried. ‘A Who’s Who, surely.’ Twas none other than “Sunny” La Mae, our La Mac Rcckcrt. I saw a vision of romance in distant and exotic climes, of struggle and conquest, of unwavering faith ’midst terrible adversity, and, finally of love and happiness in a far away corner of the world. ‘But whose who is she now?’ I asked: but the vision passed. “1 waited impatiently for the last star to unfold, wondering what Fate held for Bill, who, though of diminutive proportions, because of his roguish nature was by no means unnoticed. Will-inn) Muldowncy is America’s greatest literary critic. His brilliancy and wit have made him the most popular man in New York’s “Four Hundred.” “The last star folded, and I thought, ‘Surely our Alma Mater has cause to be proud of the class of ’25.’” HI i d PACE TWENTY-ONELa Mae.

FORMAN PACK THIRTY-THREEThe AGAWASIE JUNIOR COLLEGE SENIORS PAGE TniRTV-FOUK rrhe AGAWASIE J I Rl Junior College HE Junior College Department of the State School of Science is one of the most promising departments of the school. The number of students now enrolled in this department is double the number of last year’s enrollment. The curriculum includes the fundamental work given at the average college during the first two years. Thus a graduate of the department may enter as a Junior in any college. The education courses in this department are especially strong. A great many of the college students arc taking the required work in education, which is equivalent to a two-vear course at a normal school. The Junior College students arc among the most active in the institution and arc represented in all phases of school life. They boast several splendid athletes as well as a fair share of other talent. The college basketball team is the pride of all—students and teachers alike. They have athletes among the fairer sex as well and claim most of the members of the girls' basketball team. From their ranks come the editors of “The Small Pica,” the whole membership of the English Club, and several members of the orchestra, the Student Cabinet, and the Agawasie stall. Many of the prominent people mentioned in the Hall of Fame are college students, which alone is proof enough that it is indeed a remarkable groupof students which make up this department. Why, they are fairly bursting with knowledge. They are also very talented actors. They feign the most profound innocence as to the contents of their textbooks at times, and really make the teachers think they do not know the answers to their simple questions. However, in spite of all that the faculty may think to the contrary, this group of college students will, no doubt, some day be able to point with pride to some illustrous economist or noted chemist, and say, “Ahem! I le was in my class at college!” i s saat PAGE TH1RTY.PIVEThe AGAWASIEL__ Home Economics Department Miss Forkncr (taking visitor through Home Economics Department)—These arc the sewing rooms. Wc have six machines in here and there is our pressing room. Visitor—The equipment both here and in the cooking rooms is splendid. Let’s see. How many rooms docs the department occupy? Miss Forkncr—Five. The sewing course which wc give now is very practical. It is a trade course and those who take it do it as a means of earning their living. They arc actually taught dressmaking and study that entirely. V isitor—This has not always been a trade course, has it? Miss Forkncr—No, it hasn’t. Well in fact the whole department has been considerably changed from its first organization. It was first offered as a teacher-training course in Home Economics, about 1910. Of course, it was only a two-year course, just as any other college course that was given here. When it became necessary for Home Economics teachers to have a regular four-year college work, this department was reorganized on a different basis. It is now a part of the trade school. It is designed as a Home-Makers course. Visitor—Arc the students in this department classified as regular students? Miss Forkncr—Many of them are. especially the cooking students. A great number of them are enrolled in the Secondary Department, and take cooking as a high-school elective subject. Visitor—And the others, I suppose, come for just one term —the winter term probably. Miss Forkncr—Yes. ('I'hc telephone rings.) Miss Forkncr (answering it)—Hello. Yes. Four angel food cakes for Wednesday r0jggr3=i 30 PAGE TIIIRIYSIXThe AGAWASIE evening- All right. Yes, we can have them down there by 5:50. Good bye. Visitor—Oh, do the girls fill orders for baking: Miss Forkner—Oh yes. they often bake things for people. They have also sold such things as doughnuts, cream puffs, candy and pics to the students before Assembly. They thus revived the poor students and at the same time netted a little money for the department. They arc also often asked to serve at various places, just the other evening they served at a dinner down town. Visitor—They do get a practical training indeed. I think this is one of the most interesting departments in the school. Secondary Department The High School Department, which is a member of the Northwestern Association of Accredited High Schools, is maintained for the benefit of people in this vicinity who do not have the opportunity of attending high school in the district in which they live. The courses offered arc the same as those of any standard high school and.students enrolled in this department have the added advantage of being able to take any of the various trade courses. As is evidenced by the number of Seniors graduating, this department is not a small one and is by no means to be ignored. Nor is it lacking in any of the essential elements that students of the State School of Science should possess. It has its share of good-looking boys and “cute” girls, to say nothing of plenty of talented and studious ones. It is well represented in all school activities and promises to be well worthy of its connection with this institution. =fle= I’AC.E THIKTY-SEVEX The AGAWASIE i i Commercial Department yHAT Mo! Here we come—Yes, it’s the members of the Commercial Department of the State School of Science. For many years the students of the Commercial Departments of large educational institutions were looked upon by the college students as a “bunch of dumbclls.” I lowcvcr, in the past few years, since the competition in the business world has become so great and the need for competent and well trained men to help figure out problems in all phases of industry has increased so remarkably, many of the college students have “seen the light’’ and arc now taking up commercial work. The Bookkeeping class is one of the outstanding figures in the department; it is but reasonable that it should be, as everyone knows that bookkeeping is one of the essentials that any man who intends to enter into business must master. Mr. Peter Masica rules this hive, containing thirty-two busy bees, with an iron hand. Alvin Becker seems to be one of the prominent individuals in this class. Fveryone on the faculty seems to think that Alvin will some day become a great financier and have an office on Wall Street, because even now lie shows an unusual interest in his work, judging from his numerous trips to Mr. Mas-ica's office. Allan Forman and Kd. Klingbcil seem to be practising for their future office life. They have already acquired the habit of coming in about forty-five minutes late. 'Flic Typewriting section of the Commercial Department is also one of tlie active classes. During the winter term over fifty students were taking this line of instruction. Toward the end of the term a club was formed for the purpose of raising a fund for installing two water-cooled typewriters for the exclusive benefit of Archie Chc ik and Margaret Crvan. These two students insisted on writing at such a terrific speed that the paint on several of the new machines was scorched. Up to the present time only a small sum has been collected. One of the new courses in the department is Higher Accounting. After a student finishes his first year of bookkeeping he is given a chance to increase his knowledge of bookkeeping by taking Higher Accounting. 'Phis deals with complicated bookkeeping sets, such as arc used by corporations and other large institutions. This course has been tried out for the first time this year but is proving very successful. William Muldowncy is one of the stars in this class—in fact he is so far ahead of the other members that Mr. Masica sometimes gives him “permission” to visit his fellow pigs on the fourth floor. Sometimes Bill takes advantage of these privileges and stays too long, whereupon Mr. Masica takes a trip to the fourth floor. He always knows where he can find Bill. I jyEKJBl I’AGli THIRTY-BIGHTThe AGAWASIE .Another new course that has been offered by this department is Salesmanship. In this course all the necessary details of the duties of a salesman are taught. Gerald Smith is interested in this work, because he says that he has a chance logo to the Fiji Islands to sell heating pads to the natives. We wish you good luck. Smithy. The Shorthand and Business English classes arc also very active but space docs not allow us to give a detailed discussion of these classes. In social activities too we have not been at all backward. The students of the Commercial Department have attended all the parties and dances almost 100 per cent strong. One can recognize them at once by their superior grace, their fine charm of manner, their finished social atmosphere. We were, we are proud to say, always well represented at football and basketball games throughout the season. We still know our places, of course, and we arc not shouting— yet. But certain inner promptings make us lift up our chins wlien no one is looking, and a sort of rumly voice grows in our midst :“Wc arc just started. But we are going—Watch our smoke." Engineering Department npIIF engineering curriculum of the State School of Science was planned with a two-fold purpose in view. It's first aim is to acquaint the men with the ordinary engineering problems of rural communities and small factories. The second purpose is to provide the fundamental training necessary to lit students to continue their work in a higher institution. The interior of the engineering building is an inspiration to any mechanically inclined man. The main entrance admits one to the machine shop where he sees students at work with lathes, drills and planes. Back of the machine shop is the forge shop. Mr. Xcss enjoys many a laugh here at the expense of the "rookies who often firmly grasp a red-hot iron, only to drop it "pronto." Such a state of affairs does not continue long for it docs not take long for these new students to become as skillfull as regular "vets." The wood shop with its various saws, lathes, and other instruments presents a very neat and business-like appearance. A visitor would no doubt be bewildered at the array of tools but they arc part of the very existence of engineering students. An ordinary mortal would be still more at a loss in Mr. Barnard's electrical laboratory, amidst various magnetos, coils, switchboards, and other dangerous looking things. Back of the machine and forge shops there is the tractor and auto shop. This is a dirty, greasy, and far from beautiful place, but the things that goon there are very interesting as well as very practical. i i I’AOB THIRTY-NINEt V The AGAYVASIE I The Printing Department I FOLLOW INC) the designation of the State ' School of Science as the official State School for Trades and Industries, a completely equipped printing plant was installed for the purpose of teaching the printing trade. The equipment is up-to-date, and the general appearance of the department is neat and businesslike. A two-revolution Campbell cylinder press, two platen presses, one equipped with Miller feeder, one stitching and one punching machine, a power paper cutter, type cabinets filled with scries of good type, imposing stones, and one model 14 Mergen-thalcr linotype constitute the main equipment. II. 15. Sattcrlcc was employed as instructor of this department. Mr. Sattcrlcc has had thirty years experience in the printing business. He was superintendent of the printing department of the University of Minnesota for six years. Last year he was in charge of the Typothciac School of Minneapolis under the direction of Dun woody Institute. Several school bulletins and all other job work for the school were printed by this department. Commencing the second semester “The Small Pica,” a school paper, was published weekly by the students. This department has been highly praised by the North Dakota press, and individuals who have received copies of the bulletins and the school paper. On the opposite page is a reproduction of a letter received from President Harding's secretary in response to the printing bulletin which was sent to him, entitled, “President Harding Was a Country Printer.” i I’AGB FORTY I  mr— Tho AGAWASIE The President asks rr.e to thank you for your note of November 27th and the beautiful printed bulletin which you enclose. He takes a very great interest, as you can readily understand, in the kind of work you are doing, and wishes me to express the hope that your efforts may be crowned with a notable success.

BASSLIT ;isH=ngjj3 f'AOE FORTY-TWOI The AGAWASIE FOOTBALL SCIENCE VS. MOORHEAD In the first football game of the season, Moorhead State Teachers College defeated Science in a slow game, featured by the absence of team-work on both sides. Science had possession of the ball most of the time during the first part of the game. The play was very uninteresting because the players were not familiar with the signals. The first half ended 12-0 in favor of Science. The third quarter was a repetition of the first half, but in the final period the Moorhead eleven worked a few spectacular passes that netted them two touchdowns, and one goal kick. The final score was 15-12. S. S. S. YS. VALLEY CITY STATE TEACHERS' COLLEGE On Friday, October 20th. the football team journeyed to Valley City where they were taken into camp by a score of 20 to 0. The Valley City team outweighed our team by about ten pounds per man. “Mike” Myhra suffered an injury during the game which forced him to remain on the side lines for the remainder of the season. S. S. S. VS. JAMESTOWN COLLEGE A week of intensive football practice followed the game with Valley City and Coach Shire took the team to Jamestown where they played the strong Jamestown College team to a scoreless tic. During the first ten minutes of the game Science carried the ball down the field to Jamestown’s five yard line where they lost the ball on downs. During the second and third quarters the ball was in play near the center of the field, with the exception of a few minutes when Jamestown carried the ball to the Science five-yard line. There they were halted by the stonewall defense put up by the Science line. The last few minutes of the game found both teams trying to advance the ball by the use of the forward pass. Perhaps the inability of Science to score was due to the absence of Max Cameron, Science’s big line plunger, who was forced to remain at home because of “pressing business.” SCIENCE VS. ELLENDALE In the last game of the season Science defeated Ellcndalc Normal in a game played on a muddy field, which handicapped the play on both sides. The play was featured by the open field running of Hill Muldowncy, quarterback, who scored several 3ES=3il I'AOK FORTY-POUROh- The AGAWASIES U-v w!5I touchdowns. The Kllcndalc squad was light and inexperienced and completely outclassed, but showed an indomitable fighting spirit and threatened to score several times. The final score was 28 to 0 in favor of S. S. S. This game closed a short, but successful season for the Science eleven. Mr. Shire came to Science from Northwestern University with an excellent reputation as a football coach. Me showed his ability by whipping into form a strong team from green material and in a very short time. Mr. Shire also coached the Preps through a successful basketball season. AX HI. I.U.JA.

H. Barnard, who had been on the west corst for the last five years. After graduating from Dos Moines University he spent some years coaching, including four years at Eastern Kentucky Teachers College. Our basketball season really started last September. Ever since school opened the fellows had been looking forward to the time when they could start to play. Even at that time they seemed to feel that they were going to have a championship team. And when the season finally did roll around, Coach Barnard had about twenty hopeful candidates report for first call. Coach Barnard had only one man, Lyle Lunday, from last year’s varsity five. We were very fortunate in having in the student body men of some experience—Larin, Bow, and Huss came from W ahpeton High School, and John Lunday, who was Captain of the team this year, played at Mainline last year. Mylira, Xess, P. W'iig, Weis, Johnsgaard, and J. W'iig wercothcr athletes who were out for positions. This aggregation looked somewhat doubtful until after the first game, then the pruning knife appeared and the squad was cut to eight men. Practice then started in earnest. All preparations pointed to the opening game December 19. In the first game of the season the S. S. S. team had little difficulty in defeating the Brcck. Independents to the tune of 36-21. Larin, at center, and Lvlc Lunday, at forward, were the outstanding stars of the game. Even in the first game the boys showed that they had the qualities which arc in so much demand for the championship team. Some great “Has-Been” is quoted as saying, “The defeats and difficulties which are overcome arc the makings of great men.” So it was with our basketball team. We had ours to contend with and, as we have enlightened you on our first victory,so we shall with our first defeat. The Fergus Falls and S. S. S. game was one of the best games seen on our floor. There was a last minute rally by our boys but n i i =3S= page porty-eigiithps he 5The AGAVVASIE !E 53B they fell short by just one point. The Fergus quintet was praying for time when the game ended in their favor. 22-21. This Fergus Falls team was one of the strongest independent teams in Minnesota this year. Our first conference game was a huge success from our viewpoint. 'Fhc Mayvillc Normal bowed in defeat as they left with the short end of a 26-10 score. Thursday, Jan. 18, found the team at Valley City and while stopping at that place they showed the natives of those parts a little basketball. It required the short time of 40 minutes to firmly convince the Valley City boys of the S. S. S. superiority. It was the second half that dazed the future professors, and when the whistle woke them up after it was all over the scoreboard told them the story, S. S. S. 25. Valley City 18. Little did our boys dream that the next time they met this team it would be a championship affair. On the way home from Valley City the team stopped off at Fargo where they met the strong Fargo Kaysccs. It was one of the cleanest games seen in Fargo. (So the papers told us.) Our boys left with the short end of the 33-28 score. It was in this game that the Lunday brothers sprang into the limelight. A rally in the last few minutes failed to get us the game. Independent teams were our hoodoo this year. On Friday, Jan. 19, the team journeyed to Minot to play Minot Normal. It was in this game that the boys showed championship caliber. The Lunday Brothers and Larin uncovered a passing and scoring game which had no equal in the Conference. Some say it was their new suits that did it. But anyway when the game ended we were the victors, with a 31-27 score. On Thursday, Jan. 22. the S. S. S. team easily defeated Ellcn-dalc in an uninteresting game. Our team piled up 43 points, while Fllcndalc was contented with a scattered 9 points. Our team was gradually getting better. Their ability to shoot baskets from any angle on the lloor made them a team to be feared by the strongest in the Conference. Science came one step nearer to the coveted title by defeating the Jamestown College five here Saturday, Jan. 27. The score, 32, S. S. S., 15. Jamestown, docs not represent the game justly. The first half ended with the Scientists holding a two point lead. However, in the second half Jamestown made but 3 points while the S. S. S. basketeers piled up 20 points. The Lunday brothers were the main cog of the S. S. S. scoring machine. Time after time the Jamestown forwards brought the ball down the lloor, only to have Muss or Bow relieve them of their burden and then let the Lunday brothers and Larin work i PAGE FORTVMXE1 1 n i 2The AGAWASIE the ball to the other end of the lloor. Larin was in almost every play and was responsible for 16 of our 32 points. On Wednesday, Feb. 7, the team journeyed to Jamestown where they lost their first conference game to jamestown College 26-16. It may not have been stage fright but for some unaccountable reason our boys could not get the correct range on the hoop. 'I'hc first half ended with the score tied 8 all. Robertson, Jamestown’s wonder center, was responsible for nearly all of Jamestown’s points. Lyle Lunday and Larin carried the burden of our scoring. Here again we hear of the two little boys who played guard on our team—none other than Bow and IIuss. The Jamestown team had a wholesome respect for the guarding of these two individuals. Jamestown’s victory was gained by long shots, for they never had time to take a short shot. Our basketball season had been going on its own little way all too smoothly. This Jamestown game put the skids under the team and they slumped. Things looked blue indeed. They darkened more, for the next time we heard of the team, Moorhead had taken them into camp leaving us with but 22 points to their 27. Then Dave was kept out of the game for a week and a half because he had hurt his foot. On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the LaCrossc Normal Squad, an independent team, visited the S. S. S. and left that evening with a hard-earned 26-18 victory to their credit. Larin was out of this game and Coach Barnard used all the second string men, not wishing to hurt any of the regulars. But things had been going too bad to suit the supporters of the Red and Black and everyone was praying that the team would come out of the slump. Would they? On Friday, March 2, Moorhead Teachers’ College quintet journeyed down to the S. S. S. floor to renew hostilities with their ancient rivals. They were confident that victory would be theirs. It required forty minutes of playing toconvincc them of their error. They left these parts with a new respect for their conquerors. 'Flic team had come out of the slump. The first half ended with S. S. S. 22, Moohead 6. The final score was 35-21, S. S. S. favor. The game opened with an exhibition of passing and shooting by the Lunday brothers and Larin which has seldom been equalled on the local floor. It did not take the Teachers long to realize that it was impracticable to try and penetrate the guarding of Muss and Bow. They trusted to long shots only, and look at the result. It reads like a dime novel, this story of our basketball season. Here we arc at the end of it with jamestown. Valley City and S. S. S. the leading contenders for honors. Then we hear that Jamestown has beaten Valley City. This means that if we : PAGE FIFTYrrhe AGAWASIE' beat Valley City vc will have the championship flag to fly over our campus. Hurrah! YVVrc off.for the game! On that never-to-be-forgotten Friday, March 8, the Valley City Teachers' College sent their team down to the S. S. S. floor. They entertained our boys only for the first half of the game. 'Flic score shows what they tried to do, Valley City 9, S. S. S. 7. 'Fry as they would our boys could not get the required number of points to stay in the lead. That ball would only play capers around the rim of the basket, and then roll off. Hut with the opening of the second half John and Dave started to score and we finally overcame Valley City’s lead. We were gradually drawing away from them when the whistle blew, ending the game. The score stood 19-14, S. S. S. in the lead. For S. S. S. Huss and How played a wonderful game. It class than any other, but it would be unfair to pass by without complimenting Muss and How on their great defensive playing. 'Flic Lund ay brothers and Larin were there every minute as usual and the old fight and pep which was so much in evidence is something worth recording in our Hall of Fame. The students and townspeople were out to this game 99 per cent strong. They did their share. The team certainly showed that they had the fighting spirit and reserve strength, coming from behind as they did and taking the game. They certainly responded to the student yells. The S. S. S. basketball team this year was vastly different from teams of other years. We had no individual stars, but we did have a quint that played team work all the time. They sacrificed personal glory for team work. That’s why we landed on top of the heap. They did not play a defensive game, their defense was in their attack which bewildered more than one conference team. would be hard to say that one Scientist played more in the stellar PAC.I- FI The AGAWASIE I I I I i The Players John II. Lunday, Captain (Forward) In John Lunday vc had one of the best floor men in the state. It was not until after the third game of the season that he “got going,” but from then on he was the King Pin of our offense. I le was clear headed and steady in every game. I Ic was a captain of captains. David Larin (Center). Dave was one of the best foul shooters in the conference. His foul shooting pulled more than one game out of the fire. With him working with the Lunday offense, we had a trio that was hard to stop. He was one of the most consistent players on the team. Lyle Lunday (Forward) Lyle was undoubtedly one of the cleverest players in the conference. whose very presence in the line-up gave his team-mates confidence. It was Lyle who led the offense down the floor for basket after basket. He was a reliable point-getter, averaging at least nine points per game for the season. Howard Bowman (Guard) One of the best guards of the conference. His defensive playing was faultless. But he was not on the defense all the time, as the score book will show. It was his long shots that brought the crowds to their feet. Bow knows the game and he certainly plays it. Oliver Huss (Guard) The rest of the team did not need to worry about their defense while Ollic was playing guard. It was worth the price of admission to see him leap into the air and get the ball off the backboard. Ollie is unquestionably one of the best guards the school has ever had. Harold Myhra (Forward) Mike was handicapped all season, having hurt his knee rather badly in a football game. It did not have time to heal properly and this held him back, yet he was the sixth man on the squad. His ability to handle and pass the ball is not to go un mentioned. TflP- PA CP. PJPTY.'rWO The AGAWASIE I Conrad Ness (Guard) Playing his first year of varsity basketball, Connie developed into a player that could step into the game and work with the Lunday and l.arin combination. Connie showed up exceptionally well in the Valiev City game. Another year and Connie will make the best of them move to hold their positions on the team. Paul Wiig (Forward) This was Paul’s first year on the squad. It is experience which he needs to finish him off as a basketball player. In the games which lie played lie gave a very good account of himself. In Appreciation of the Coach Too often in this world of ours the man behind the scenes docs not get his share of the fruit from the tree of success. So it is with any athletic coach. One docs not need a college education to grasp the fact that we arc alluding to none other than Coach Barnard. Coming to our school with no predictions as to what he could do as a coach, he took charge of the basketball squad and welded them into a wonderful scoring machine, lie knew the game and was able to impart this knowledge to his youthful charges. His ability to make his team come back tlic second half and outplay their opponents after being behind the first half did not pass unnoticed—not in a Championship game like the Valley City-S. S. S. game. Upon the Coach’s recommendation the athletic association awarded to the following men basketball sweaters and letters: John Lunday, Captain, Dave Larin, Lyle Lunday, Oliver Huss, and Howard Bowman. Emblematic of the Championship of the Interstate Athletic Conference for 1923 and wishing to show their appreciation for the honors which the basketball team brought to Science, the school awarded gold basketballs to the following players: John Lunday, David Larin, Lyle Lunday, Howard Bowman, Oliver Huss, Harold Mvhra, Conrad Ness, and Paul Wiig. The outlook for another Championship team next year is exceptionally bright. W’c lose our two forwards, but with three letter men, a wealth of promising material, and Coach Barnard back again, we have reasons to feel optimistic. i i PACE FIFTY-THREEPrep Basketball Tlic 1'rcp basketball season was one of the checkerboard var- Thev started the.season playing strong teams but, as they rounded into shape toward the latter part of the season, the defeats were turned to victories, or the games were so close that only the score announced the victor. The season began with a good collection of material from which Coach Shire was able to pick a formidable quint. Newell Xcllcrmoc was elected Captain at the beginning of the season and was a capable leader at all times, instilling lighting spirit into the players at critical moments. He played his position at left forward in a very creditable manner and, as several newspapers commented, “he was a speedy little forward.” l’ACIi FIJ'TY-FOUtt The AGAWASIE 1 I i Rudolph Swenson, at center, was the hub around which plays started and was the mainstay of the team. 11 is size made him a valuable man in working under the basket. John Ncllcrmoc, right forward, was a shifty player, getting in every play, and his uncanny eye for the basket made him a dangerous man at all times. Amos White, playing alternately at forward and running guard, played an excellent game and he registered many goals from long range. Ted Braun, at standing guard, was six feet of towering strength, which his opponents found very difficult to pass. Henry Schiller, utility man, could play any position on the team and played in nearly all of the games. John W'iig was elected manager and, after Coach Shire resigned. took over both duties, which he performed in a creditable manner. The scores of the games are as follows: Walcott........... 17 Preps Leonard........... 17 Preps Walcott........... 9 Preps Wahpeton High.... 26 Preps Wyndmcrc.......... 17 Preps.

They played seven games winning four of them and losing three. The girls opened their season with a 39 and 7 win over the Indians. The Indian girls had had very little practice under girls’ rules and the snappy passing and accurate shooting of the Science team bewildered them. The next week Christine was our victim. The game was played at Christine in a very small, poorly lighted hall, and, although very much handicapped, we emerged victors, by a score of 15 and 19. Girls’ Basketball The AGAWASIEt I'AOII FIFTY-SIXIE3 The AGAWASIE Cl On Feb. 9 the Science girls journeyed to Fargo, playing the A. C. team that day and Fargo High School on Feb. 10. The game with the A. C. was a great disappointment. Inc . I.ylford, regular guard, was ill and could not play and Marcella Morris, forward, sprained her ankle during the first quarter. We lost by a 40 and 9 score. 'Fite next day the girls played the fast Fargo High School team to a 20 and 17 score, the locals having the short end. Marcella Morris, at runningcenter.did much toward bringing the ball into our territory, while Oliva Pucl . was the mainstay on the defense. The Christine basketeers were our visitors next and fell before our team by a 38 and S score. Rose Lauder, forward, scored thirteen field goals, and together with Marcella Morris,did some fine passing. Myrtle Quant, center, played her best game of the season. Fargo High came down here next and romped away with us, the score being 41 and 7. No one on the Science team was going, while every member of the Fargo squad played a fine game. Our last game, with Fairmount. was a close one. The final score was 14 and 16. Rose Lauder was the star point-getter, making five field goals and two free throws. Olivia Puetz, captain, was at all times the defensive mainstay. She is a close guard and a very clever player. Gladys Carney, who played most of the season in the other guard position, is a close guard and a very consistent player. Inez Lvford, guard, is a little erratic, but a very hard girl to play against. She is especially quick at getting the ball. Myrtle Quant played a fine game at jumping center. She is fast and a fine passer. Dorothea l.uick and Kvelyn Burbank alternating at running center both played good steady games and passed well. Marcella Morris was a very valuable player. At forward she was a good shot and a good team worker. She played running center in several games and brought the play into our territory a great deal. Rose Lauder, forward, was the chief point-getter for her team. She is a clever player, an accurate shot, and a good passer. Kvelyn Stimson, sub forward, is one of the best shotsonthc squad and in the games she played in, showed up well. Lo]FFZ35j! PACE FIFTV SI-VHNThe AGAWASIE The Student Cabinet i most influential student organization on the cam-the Student Cabinet, a body elected by the students to consult with the faculty on all matters of general interest to the student body. The members of this year’s Cabinet are Julia Squires, Marion Barger, John Luuday, and Max Cameron. The first duty of the Student Cabinet is to control the spending of the student fund, which consists of the money paid in for student organization fees. F’rom this fund athletics and social ac-iviiics must be financed. If the basketball team needs sweaters it is the student fund which furnishes them. The Cabinet also promotes social life by superintending dances and parties. The biggest dance of the season, the Football Dance, was planned and carried out by the members of the Student Cabinet. Upon the Cabinet has also fallen the important task of selecting the nominees for staff members of the .Agawasic and of “The Small Pica.” It can readily be seen that this method of selecting nominees is an efficient one, for Cabinet members arc in a position to learn the sentiment of both students and faculty as to the capability of the persons selected and can thus judge more wisely than could the student body. The aim of the Student Cabinet has been two-fold: to represent the interests of the students; and to promote the general welfare of the school. It has been ably assisted and advised by President Rile' in all its work. "Here, boy," said the wealthy motorist, "I want some gasoline, and please get a move on' You’ll never get anywhere in the world unless you push. Push is essential. W hen I was young I pushed and that got me where I am.” “Well, guv-nor," replied the boy, "I reckon you’ll have to push again, 'cause we ain’t got a drop of gas in the place.’’ I AGB FIFTY-NINEr i BUI S. S. S. Orchestra M R. Masica issued a call for orchestra recruits about the first of November and at the first rehearsal the outlook for a large orchestra was very hopeful. However, the number dwindled down to four members: Rosie, at the piano; Mike Myhra, on the saxaphone; Klofson,on the flute; and Mr. Masica, violinist. This noble body made its debut at assembly and was received with much applause. Since that time they have graced assembly on many occasions and great ostentation has greeted them every time. The orchestra, with the addition of a drummer, furnished music for several dances after basketball games. They were also on deck at the Knglish Club parties. Mr. Masica deserves much credit for the success of the or-orchcstra. Although its musical ambitions reached no higher than marches and popular stuff, yet they performed in a most creditable manner. Mr. Masica is a violinist of rare talent and was a very big part of the orchestra. im I ill PACK SIXTYThe AGAWASIE S i 'T'HE Knglish Club is composed of the two college English L classes and numbers about thirty-five students. It was organized early in November, 1922, following the suggestion of Mr. Iverson. At that time Carl Hlofson was elected president: Harold Myhrn, vice president; and Paul Wiig, secretary and treasurer. 'Phc purpose of the club is primarily to promote literary and artistic activity in the school, while incidentally it provides an organization of congenial students who arc doing very much to promote social activities. On the evening of December 19, the English Club entertained the students and faculty at a Christmas party at the Gym. The program, lunch and dance was perhaps doubly enjoyed and J appreciated, coming as it did in the midst of the stress and grind of mid-winter examinations. Another of the high-lights on the school’s social calendar was X the sleigh ride on January 17. to which the Club invited the entire student body and faculty. An oyster supper and dance at Burch Hall followed the hour's ride. The other night I look my girl For a walk. She said she was tired. So we sat down In the park. Then she said 1 ler hands were cold.

PACE SIXTY-ONE The AG A WAS IE ih£-.-43glE3 The Small Pica THIS year we had a new attraciion, not excepting our beautiful and talented Wrigley “rasslcrs,” in the appearance of The Small Pica, which the powers that be condescendingly deigned to issue weekly. The first edition was dated January twenty-fifth, a four-page paper that rcllectcd creditably upon the new printing department. The following week the student body elected Rose Lauder as Chief Scandal Scoopcr and Dave Larin as Assistant to the Chief, or, in the vernacular of the day, Editor-in-Chief and Assistant Kditor. In the interests of The Pica, the Science, and Bill Bell, they first honored Evelyn Burbank by appointing her Contributing Kditor, and after much persuasion and thirty-two cents she very obligingly accepted the title. As an interesting writer Ev is without a peer and we predict that she will end up with 'The New York 'Limes or Jim Jam Jems. To thoroughly cover the news field the honor of being called Reporter was asked for, and received, by the following brilliant (?) and able young women and men, Kathleen Kane, La Mac Reckon, Lloyd Fisher and Johnny Wiig. The Ed. and her Assist, labored many hours in attempting to pick out the most capable, but the scintillation of these mental meteors over-shadowed all other competitors. Katty Kane was picked for the heights of fame and glory because of her gastronomical and literary ability. Yc must admit that she wields a mean pen. No better ink slingcr ever put out a Jeers and Jawbone catalog. In spite of her retiring disposition La Mac Rcckcrt has made good as a pencil pusher. Her advice to the love-lorn girls of Science will ever be remembered by those who took her counsel. However, we hope that the blighted ones of Cupid will not hold that against her. Naturally, the School’s worst “fusscr” and ideal man, in addition to being a shark in English and blacksmithing, to mention a few of his many virtues, had but little competition and was selected—chiefly because his neckties always match his socks. Eishcr is a good reporter but he has one unpardonable sin; he never hands in any of his scandal. Because we have high ideals and because we wish to have some one to look up to, the little Wiig boy who is burdened with the appellation of Johnny was selected lobring up the rear of this peerless aggregation of dirt purveyors. Like Lydia Pinkham’s compound, Johnny’s agile pen is both powerful and antiseptic. We predict that he will end up on Whiz-Bang or in jail. =atr PACK SIXTY !

A twenty-four page alumni edition of the Pica was published in March and a basketball number was issued in April. In all. The Small Pica is well written and, from a typographical viewpoint, it is the best school or college paper in the state. Its make-up is faultless, for which the greatest of credit is due to Mr. Satterlcc, instructor in printing, and the printing department. The Pica has lived up to the sentiment expressed directly under the heading, “Eleven points of service to the •S.S.S.” Did You Know This, Miss Clark? For about an hour a gentleman from Denver had been boasting about the magnificence of the Rockies loan Irish New Yorker. “You seem to be mighty proud ov thim mountains,’' the Irishman finally observed. “You bet I am,” the Westerner replied, “And I ought to be since my ancestors built them." The Irishman thought this over for some time and then asked, “Did you ever happen to hearov the Dead Sea in—in one of the old countries?” “Yes, indeed,” replied the gentleman from Denver.

March the twenty-second was chosen. Max Cameron was appointed as a committee of one in charge of the arrangements and President Rilcv acted as faculty adviser. Work was started immediately and the town was ransacked for ideas and materials. At last the big night rolled around and little Tonsilitis and Whooping Cough set out with their Ma and their best bib and tucker to sec the big sights. The first thing that met their eyes was a man who extracted seven cents from their Mama's pocket-book. This, so the man (not gentleman) explained, was the premium on an accident policy if they partook of one of Frank Benda’s “hot dogs.” Ma said they might as well become acquainted with their future domicile and suiting her actions to her words she dragged them through an Inferno that would make Dante’s description of “Hades” seem like a blissful Paradise. I.ittleTonny pledged himself to eternal goodness. Taking the elevator to the main floor, they were greeted by a big burly brute called “Fish,” who arrested little Whoopy for throwing confetti while her galoshes were buttoned. The mean man shoved Whoopy into a cage which proved to be a “shocking affair.” Hauled before the judge she was found “guilty” and fined four cents. Ma became hungry, chasing the little Wiig boy, who commonly sports the handle of Johnny, and hastened to the Benda and Ness “hot dog” stand. Putting one foot on the bar she ordered “One.” After eating part and throwing the rest at little Tonsilitis, Mama decided she could stand anything, and wended her way to Miss Clark’s crystal gazing shop. This reduced Ma’s wad ten cents and to relieve her indignation she waddled to ’Fed Brown’s thirst dispensary and consumed one gallon strawberry moonshine and one “Frandson Special.” Having caught a glimpse of a “folly” girl, Tonny insisted upon following her. However, it was only Katty Kane so he felt quite chagrined. Ma then took her two darlings down to view the “Follies of 1923,” which combined beauty and brains—the latter being supplied by Miss Forkner. Between acts the little Myhra and llintgen boys, in high spirits, put on a black-faced comedy. 'Phis act made Ma hungry and waking little Tonny and -v lr- =ae= PACE SIXTV.KIGIITFET r -—!ThP AGAWASIE Whoopy, she liaslcncd to Science “Swede shop and ordered a “beef stew sundae.” At the Keno stand, Tonny showed considerable gambling ability. It helped him to carry away a young kitchen, three boxes of “Bolstad’s” kisses, and one dark-eyed “Bathing Beauty." At this moment Ma choked on confetti thrown by a big, fat man. She started in pursuit, but discovering him to be Max, the manager of the show, and fearing the wrath of the stern judge, she hid behind “Big Bill” (Muldowncy). Whoopy took this opportunity to stick a pin in Tonny's balloon. For this hoopy received a severe pinch and they were both carried away shrieking. Their feelings were soothed, however, by a visit to the “Magic Man” and to “King Tut’s Tomb." Masica’s “Jvrating, Jypsy, Jazzadors," including Mike Myhra, next attracted the attention of Tonny and Ma and Whoopy and until half past twelve they swirled and twirled in an oblivion of delight which made them willing slaves to Masica’s charms. At this point, Ma decided they must depart, however, not before she had added her last pennies to the hundred and ninety dollars which enriched the coffers of Science School. Ma, Ton-silitis and Whooping Cough went home filled with a happiness that lasted many moons.

If we could take them as humorously as Ted Brown docs there would be a great weight removed from our “bony cavities.” Here’s how Teddy takes it: Ted—“Oh, say, I pulled off something big last night.” Palmer—“What was it?” Ted—“My shoes.” But Teddy’s sweet disposition is not ours. We feel quite gloomy about it, that is, everybody except the chemistry class, they don't seem to be out of spirits. The other day Ted found a shoe horn. I le didn’t know what it was so lie gave it to Palmer and said: “What kind of an instrument is that?” “Shoe horn.” “What docs it play?” “Footnotes.” At the Dorm Max—‘‘This coffee is nothing but mud.” Dave—“Sure, it was ground this morning.” So Do We Mike—“Have you heard my last joke?” Gerald—“I hope so.” With the Teachers Myrtle—“Miss Clark must have been an awfully poor student when she went to school.” Edna—“Why?” Myrtle—“ ’Cause she always knows just what questions to ask to find out that we haven’t been studying.” F.lofson (to Mr. Halsey)—“1 owe everything I know about Biology to you.” Mr. Halsey—“Don’t mention such a trifle.” W e wonder if Lloyd Fisher is working for a bachelor’s degree. Chem. Girl I—“1 think Mr. Tarncy is perfectly charming! I le knows so much, and yet in conversation he doesn’t make one feel like a fool.” Chem. Girl 2—'“Yes, isn’t he clever!” i i i r.XGESKVKNTY.TIIKEi: The AGAWASIE Spell It With “c” or «i"? Miss Clark—“You know where the road paved with good intentions leads to.” Student—“Beg pardon, but what is this you have written on my paper:” Mr. Iverson—“I told you to write more legibly.” I I St. Peter—“You say you wrote some of those jokes for the Agawasic?” Student—“Yes, sir.” St. Peter—"Step into the elevator.” Student—“How soon docs it go up?” St. Peter—“It doesn’t go up, it goes down.” Said the Fur-Coated Dame to the Hairless Pup: “You cute little thing, let me cover you up!” Said the Pup: “Were you clad in your own natal suit You’d be colder than I am and not half so cute.” I ! Miss Mirick received the shock of her life the other day. 'I’hc gentle zephyrs of Wednesday kept her at home. She just happened to call up Prexy and he informed her that the library was open. “Who is in charge?” quoth she in a terrible voice. “Nobody,” quoth lie, and then Miss Mirick came as near cussing as she ever will.—From "The Small Pica." When Miss Wheeler heard Myrtle Quam singing the following song aroung Burch Hall, she stopped, looked, and listened: He takes me to the movie show, The cheapest thing in town. We walk both ways through rain and slush, And spoil my Sunday gown. He treats me to a soda, For they only cost a dime. Right back to Burch Hall then we go; And then he waits for me to say, “1 had a perfectly wonderful time.” We arc surprised at you, Haugen. i ■iSd—l-.-X': PACK SKVENT Y-POUR Cl ecvfui PAGE SEVESTV-riVEThe AGAWASIEE Their Favorite Hymns (and hers) I'm the Sheik of Alabant Klofson Goodbye Girls, I’m Through Kish Watch Your Step L Cryan My Tccnic Keltic Weenie Kdna Mel .

It has been the endeavor of the Hoard of Directors and officers of the Club to make it a community club in which every citizen would be welcomed to membership irrespective of his financial standing or his political or religious beliefs. Among the members are not only the business and professional men of the City but clerks, stenographers, laboring men—in fact men from every walk of life. The Club is interested primarily in the welfare of the City and its inhabitants and in the development and building up of the rich surrounding agricultural territory. For some years it has been the well-defined policy of the Club to interest itself in matters which a cct not only the City, but the surrounding territory. Farming is recognized as the basic industry upon which we all depend for a livelihood and the Club is ever anxious to assist in every way possible all projects which will promote the welfare of the farming community. Among the activities of the Club might be mentioned its Science School Committee which is assisting in every way possible to develop the possibilities of that institution to the utmost; the Civic Improvement Committee which interests itself in every activity looking toward the cleanliness and beautification of the City; the Freight Rate Committee which is endeavoring to assist the people of North Dakota to obtain relief from the unfair and discriminatory rates which have held our State back so long in its natural development; our Retail Credit Bureau which collects and disseminates credit information among its members and has promoted co-operative advertising to the end that people might know of the superior advantages of Wahpcton as a trading center. The Budget Committee which makes up, for the approval of the Club, a community budget to which everyone in the city is asked to subscribe and which covers seventeen objects for which the average town is asked to subscribe. After approval and adoption of the annual budget a drive is put on at which time every citizen is asked to give his or her share of this annual expense. This does away with continuous solicitation of funds and each citizen knows in advance how much his donations for these objects will be for the entire year. It substitutes efficiency for chaos and is very generally approved. A number of other committees, all of them important, and all formed for some real purpose, arc active in making the Commercial Club a real success. We gladly give any information or assistance to anyone interested in Wahpcton or in North Dakota.

IT Winter in WahpelonTHE ASSEMBLIES General assemblies were held once a week throughout the year. These were of interest, as well as beneficial to the students, as many of these meetings were featured by interesting speakers. The first speaker at assembly during the winter term was the local postmaster, Mr. Elmer Mylira, who gave us some interesting particulars on the various departments of the postoffice. The history of the Wahpeton postoffice, registration of mail, postal savings and parcel post, were touched upon in Mr. Myhra's address. On January 2.3, the students gathered at the assembly and enjoyed an address given by Attorney Heder of Wahpeton. Mr. Heder is chairman of the Americanization work which is being carried on in Richland County through the National Bar Association, and brought forth some very interesting facts on the subject in his speech. Rev. W. L. Bennett, pastor of the First Methodist Church of Wafo-peton, was the next speaker to entertain the assembly, January 30th. He gave an interesting talk on the subject of the Discovery of America. On Wednesday, February 6th, the Wahpeton Rotary Club, which was on an inspection tour of the Science School attended the assembly. Attorney C. E. Lounsbury, secretary of the Rotary Club, was the principal speaker. In his address, he touched upon the civic interest in the institution and the work of the community in placing the school on its present basis. He also outlined the works of various committees and the subsequent action of the legislature. For the proper observance of Washington's birthday, assembly was held on Friday, February 22. The speaker of the day was Hon. George F. McKenna, Judge of the District Court. Judge McKenna’s talk dealt wit'll the lire of George Washington. He touched upon the greatness of Washington and upon the quality of greatness in general. His speech was .masterful in every respect, powerful in thought, rich in illustration, and for nearly an hour the speaker held the audience’s attention. The members of the jury attended this assembly as invited guests. PAGE MAETHE A G A W A 8 I E ELECTRIC STUDENTS WIRE SCHOOL HOUSE One of the classes in electrical trades at the Science School met with an unusual opportunity for practical work and made the most of the task. In order to complete preparations for a community party at the Antelope Consolidated School, it was necessary that the building be wired by a Friday night. Shortness of notice and pressure of other business prevented the electrical contractors who had bid on the work from finishing it promptly; and at the invitation of the Antelope School Board, and by permission of the contractors, the job was taken over by S. S. S. trade students under the direction of Mr. Barnard. These men did the work rapidly and effectively. The school is a large, well constructed building, having a basement, two stories with eight rooms and an attic. A difficulty due to the fact that the building was already built with headers between all two-by-fours to support blackboards was overcome by a system planned to put the building on Jive circuits to conform with the electrical laws of this state. The men met adequately problems of concealed work in the attic and of the running in of metal molding in the basement and first lloor. The people of Antelope township were liigliy pleased with this unexpected help in an emrgency, and showed their gratitude by lavish hospitality. It is reported that Mr. Bernard and his students disposed of two chicken dinners with the same workmanlike finish that they had shown in wiring the building. In the matter of dinners some of the visitors had extensive practice; but chey were particularly pleased at the successful wiring, as most of the students concerned had been taking electrical trades for a comparatively short time. The electricians who did the work were Davis, Hawk. Lebacken. Mangskau, Moses, Ogland, Rosholt, McDougall, Van Wechel, Schrani and Anderson, all under the supervision of Mr. Barnard. THE SMALL PICA The Small Pica, the students' weekly publication, has held its readers interest throughout the school year. The first issues were edited by last year’s associate editor, David Larin, until this year’s editors, Frederick Jones and Evelyn Burbank took charge. The Pica serves a number of purposes. In the first place it is the students’ publication and contains news of interest to the student body. At the same time it serves as shop practice for the students in the printing department. The Pica is used for advertising and is probably more patent in this respect than other forms of advertising would he, for what the students think of their school influences the prospective student more than any other factor. A file of the Pica, reflecting as it does, events as they occur, reminds us of .many details otherwise forgotten. Look at the opposite page and see if you remember the events referred to in the headlines. PAGE TENTHE SMALL PICA ELE E. FOISTS OK SERVICE TO S. S. S. AivtrtMH ■ « ■• Publicity . lly, . g y . style..

MEETING Mr. Sattcrlee. representing the smallest newspaper in the state, (and the best) “The Small Pica" attended the North Dakota Press Association meeting in Fargo January IS and ID, 1924. He took with him a display of work done in the Science print shop which included letterheads, posters, pamphlets, bulletins and last year’s catalogue. Most interesting of all were the fohlers which extended the Small Pica’s greeting to the convention in the following poem written by Professor McMahon : My lords who ho’d your heads so high. Have greeting from a little guy Of your fraternity. With valiant heart in body small We venture to your council hall Right glad this day to wish you all Fair welcome merrily.

TYPEWRITER AWARDS The Commercial Department conducted the Royal Typewriters Proficiency Test weekly. From the typewriting classes the following were the ones to win the Certificates of Proficiency. Those writing 30 words per minute of more were: Emma Brunner, Dorothea Luick, Pauline Simonitch, Clara Hien, Lauretta Wolfe, Ida Lucas, Heel wig Brunner, Inez Lyford, Agnes Jacobsen, Lucille Hess, Ethel Van Wechel, Charlotte Peterson. Those winning a Proficiency Gold Pin by attaining a speed of 45 words or more per minute were: Emma Brunner, Hedwig Brunner. Miss Emma Brunner was the only student up to the present time to receive the Advanced Certificate of Proficiency. Miss Brunner, in a 15 minute test, wrote a gross number of 933THE A (G A W A S II E words. Deducting for five errors gave her, according to rules, a record of GO words per minute. This was the best test written for the Royal awards in this part of the country, according to a communication received from the Royal Typewriter Company at Fargo. WHO’S WHO CONTEST The Who's Who Contest, an annual event, to determine the ol the campus was held on February 15. This year, it became an interesting and vital matter. Men were running about wild, girls were smiling at everyone—that is some of them were, especially any that thought their smiles were pleasant and winning. Below will be found the names of the great and near great.

I-A Til HIT KENTHE AtSAWASBE When the next faculty party invitations are sent to faculty members and families two new guests will be counted among those invited. They are Grace Ann Riley and Nadine Elwina Barnard. Neither Daddy Barnard nor Riley would deign to confide to us their plans for the newcomers, but we understand that they are expected to register with the 1910 class at S.S.S. THE BOARD WRITES The Board of Administration visited the school on November 9 and the Pica got out an extra the same day announcing their arrival to the student body. The following letter from the secretary of the board speaks for itself. Editor, Small Pica, School of Science, Wahpeton, North Dakota-Dear Sir: I have before me your copy of November 9 containing an extra, notifying the student body of the presence of the Board at Wa'hpeton. This was mighty good work and I wish to compliment you on it. It is needless to say that the members of the Board were greatly pleased at your enterprise and the courtesy. It is always a pleasure to receive your paper as it is interesting from beginning to end and we always read every word of it. Yours very truly, BOARD OF ADMINISTRATION By Ernest G. Wanner, Executive Secretary, THE NEW LINOTYPE Due to the increased enrollment of students and the development of the Printing Department of this school, it was found that one linotype machine was not sufficient for the needs of this department, and it would be necessary to install an additional linotype machine. Acting upon this demand, a Model 1 machine was installed. This machine is of the same make as the Model 14 in operation, only somewhat smaller. The new machine arrived here December 20th. After several changes had been made in the print shop to supply room for the machine, it was finally installed by Prof. Satterlee. The Printing Department as a trade has been under way for a little over a year. Under the supervision of Mr. Satterlee, it thrived and grew rapidly, and has now been established on a firm and substantial basis. This is evidenced by the installation of the new linotype and the increased enrollment. The plant now has two linotype machines, punching and stitching machines, a cylinder press, and two job-presses, one with a Miller Feeder attachment; an equipment which can be rivaled by few small print shops in the state.

Where the West Begins" but rather to visit Miss Julia Squires. Merlin failed to give the details of the visit and it was not until the Christmas holidays that the couple announced their marriage at Glendive, Montana, in November. Mrs. Early graduated from the Junior College of Science in 1923 while “Muggs” is now a member of the Science College class of 1925. A host of friends offer their congratulations to the happy couple.

It is impossible to meet the expectations of all—in fact no attempt has been made to do so—but it is hoped that the majority of the student body will be reasonably satisfied with the quarterly. As might be expected at the very time of this reading there are a number or disgruntled individuals whose tender and sensitive feelings the quarterly (so they leel) has lacerated. It is regretted that each student cannot be pictured wearing a halo, a look of angelic bliss upon his beaming countenance, a harp in one hand, a sprig of an olive tree in the other. Feeling that such paragons are not I'.uu: KicuriTKNTHE A G A W A § 1 E roaming at large upon the campus the Aga waste lias preferred to picture them according to human nature, imperfections, perfections and all. In no sense is this to be construed as an apology for what appears in these pages: in no way do we apologize Lor any article, picture or cartoon in this quarterly. Our only regret is that we have not included some material which in our hurry we have overlooked. The Science School of Today For the first time in its history the Science School has arrived at a feeling of permanence. Some explanation is necessary to make clear the meaning of this statement. The school in its early day was regarded as an experiment. Courses were built, changed, and adapted to meet demands of critics, necessities of students, or conditions in surrounding territory. Throughout these various changes and experiments, however, there persisted the vocational idea upon which this institution was originally founded. The Junior College department which made provision toward higher professional training, the Department of Commerce, the Department of Household Arts, and the Engineering Department which emphasized mechanical trades necessary to a farming community—all these continued to maintain high standards and to attract students. However successful these departments have been it has always been recognized that the primary and distinctive function of the school was the teaching of trades. Before the war, there were almost insurmountable difficulties in the way of establishing a varied and practical trade school in this state. After the war it became immediately apparent that education for trades was one of the chief factors in a program of reconstruction. There arose a demand that trade schools be established in every state, a demand emphatically stated by President Wilson, and ratified by the passage of the Smith-Hughes Bill. This act provided for extensive Federal Assistance to State Schools which should install practical trade courses. Fortunately there was already existent in North Dakota a school dedicated exactly to the purposes defined in the Smith-Hughes Act. Last year, the Board of Administration with no curtailment of the other services rendered by the school, made provision for the development of distinctly practical trade courses. This year a number of new courses have been definitely and firmly established. The results have been astonishing. Registration has nearly doubled, school spirit has increased three-fold, and the reputation of the school locally and throughout the state has grown to a remarkable degree. Even those students who are not primarily engaged in trades are interested in the extension of the trade school idea, and in the fact that they are helping to give the institution an enduring basis. Schools which are called successful owe their success to the follow- I'AUK .NINETEENTHE I E ing reasons in various combination—a large endowment, a good teaching force, capable students, a loyal and active alumni. No devices for publicity can succeed without these; effective publicity proceeds directly from these. In point of endowment, as we all know, this institution depends on the allotment of school funds granted by legislative endowment. This allotment, in turn, must always depend on our present status and future promise. We have at present and will continue to have a strong faculty, and the student body is better organized both for work and play than it has been for several years. There remains the question of the alumni. On this question the Agawasie. which, by its very nature devotes a good deal of time to jesting, would speak seriously for a moment. The State School of Science is less than twenty years old; the oldest graduates have hardly attained middle age; its nature does not attract people of great wealth, but it is designed rather to start people of moderate means on the road to practical trades and professions; its alumni are widely scattered throughout the Northwest and elsewhere. For these reasons we cannot expect large financial contributions from the alumni, or even a great degree of organized effort to promote our common interests. There are some things, however, that we should like to have all realize, who have attended or graduated from SCIENCE. We should like to have them realize that the institution which they have possibly regarded as a partial factor in their own education is becoming a vital factor of communal welfare. We should like to have them realize that each one of them can assist in developing the school to a position which shall make them proud not only of being its graduates, but of being able to say: “Not only did we attend the State School of Science. As students and graduates we helped to build it." You may help mainly in the following ways— 1. By keeping in touch with our present activities. 2. By supporting our activities as well as you possibly can. 3. By recommending either the Junior College or the Trade School to friends and relatives. 4. By speaking well of the school in your own community or elsewhere. 5. By sending here, in due course of time, your sons and daughters. 6. By organizing as far as possible within your own communities. We want not merely one but several Alumni Associations. Now is the time to begin. 7. In these and in other ways which are known to you, you may help to establish more firmly the Stale School of Science. It doesn't matter whether your education has been completed in other institutions. We don't want to take away a singe grain of your loyalty to them. But we realize that there is no finer adventure in life than the adventure of building something new in the present which shall be IWfiE TWENTYD IE THE A Q A W A useful for the future. If you have graduated from a great University, remain loyal to that, and proud of the fact that you were a part) of it. lie loyal to Science, not only for its service to you, but for the opportunity you have of being practically one of its founders. The New Agawasie At the beginnning of the school year considerable discussion was aroused among the student body by the proposal to have the Agawasie issued as a quarterly. During the Fall term nothing was done about settling the matter and it was not until the third week in December that the thing was determined and the editors elected. Owing to One delay it was decided that no quarterly would be compiled and this accounts for the fact that a few fall activities have been carried over into this winter term number. Decidedly this is an experiment. Whether or not the Agawasie will be a quarter,y or revert to an annual will depend upon its reception by the student body. Students who have helpful criticisms to make of this number are asked to tell them to the staff. Suggestions will be considered and if found practical will be used in the next issue. It is interesting to know that the State School of Science is one of the few schools that possess the facilities to turn out a magazine: this Agawasie has been printed completely by the printing department of luis institution. An Innovation This issue of the Agawasie may be rightly called an innovation. Tne annual in practically every institution has become a stereotyped book, tuis Agawasie is an exponent of a new idea. Instead of keeping all the material to the end of the year before publishing it, by which time much of it has become decidedly stale and musty—at tne end of each term the matter is presented to the students. The events and scenes are still fresh within their minds and the quarterly serves to awaken more interest. Any number of institutions publish magazines every three months but so far as is yet known no other school puts out a quarterly planned on the same lines as this one: barring the fact that it is issued every three months the material is precisely that which would be issued in a year-book. A trail blazer, a quarterly and a magazine, the Agawasie will no doubt he watched by other institutions who feel the need of replacing their annual with a more interesting publication. l’AOE TWE. TY-0. ETHE A Q A W A § I E DISPOSING OF THE CARNIVAL FUND With the ratification of the constitution for the student cabinet by the student body, the question as to the disposal of the carnival fund will once more arise. It seems to be the opinion of the student body that the money should be used for something: of permanence, something that will endure. Something of permanence! Something that will endure! Something that will last! Ideas have been put forth (some of them excellent) but none have had the unanimous backing of the students. The Agawasie proposal as to the expenditure of the carnival fund is sketched on the opposite page—a pair of college gates for the campus entrance. It does not follow that the gates should be of the design sketched. The purpose of the drawing is merely to present a fair idea of the beauty that they would add to the grounds. Mr. Simonson, instructor in brick-laying, states that the bricks for the gates could be made by classes in brick-laying during the winter term, while all work of erection could be done by them, making a substantial reduction in the cost of the two important requisites, material and labor. Therefore, more elaborate gates than the amount of money usually warrants can be erected. Durable and lasting, an object of beauty and pride to the Science School, can any student suggest a better or more practical way of investing the money? The spending of this carnival fund will establish a precedent for years to come and if the money is wisely spent this year the funds of following carnivals are more apt to be disposed of with wisdom. To spend this year’s money on an unworthy object would be the height of foolishness. A pair of gates would prove to coming student bodies that the student body of 1924 had the interests of Science at heart. A pair of gates! Let’s have them! PAGE TWENTY-TWOH E W .V .. N 1 I I s aCTTviTie Jg; t 8 V Sj i i' J- '• • . - s • . » The Ice Carnival Co-operating with the Walipeton Business Men, the Science School students arranged various stunts tor the Ice Carnival which was held January 11 to formally open the skating rink at the County Fair Grounds. An extensive program had been planned but due to extremely cold weather many of the numbers were dropped. George Field and his collie, Rex, won the dog-derby which took place in the afternoon. However, he was hard pressed by Lyle Manning and his Airdale dog. The winner covered the course from Minnesota Avenue, Breckenridge, to the entrance of the Fair Grounds in record time. The parade left the Science School Gymnasium at seven o'clock. A float, bearing the Carnival Queen. Miss Emma Brunner, and her attendants led the procession, followed by a large gathering of the student body. At- Dakota Avenue, the King of the Carnival appeared on tiie scene and ascended the throne beside the Queen. Joining the parade was a float from the Walipeton High School and their delegation of boosters after which the procession proceeded on its way down Dakota Avenue to Fourth Street and back to the Fair Grounds. Here, after much pomp and grandeur, the coronation ceremony was performed and festivities began. The first event of the evening's program was the men’s skating race. This event was a thriller, there being a large number of entrants and the race very close, Peterka barely nosing out a victory over Merlin Early who was a close second. The girl’s race was featured by a neck to neck race by Margaret Lehman, of Breckenridge, and Lucile Lunday, the Breckenridge girl crossing the tape first. In the ladies' costume event sponsored by the Science School, some very clever Parisian costumes were exhibited. Hedwig Brunner sported a mean rig. a pair ot imported Patagonian trouserotts, topped off with an exceedingly nifty heavy-white sweater. "Hed" took first prize with this apparel. The redoubtable Gertie Huppler, in skating costume that rivaled the famous Joseph's coat nosed in a mean second. PAGE TWENTY-FOURA (5 A W A S 1 E The third prize was captured by the popular Esther Jacobson who was arrayed in a very beautiful sport-model costume. The main attraction was the African Hockey game. This was featured by a number of Science School fellows togged out in football suits and roller skates. Aided by brooms for hockey sticks and a basketball for the puck they staged a wonderful tilt, bringing forth all the fine rudiments of the game. The contest was a thriller from start to finish, one player, Arnold Sansborn, getting injured in the fray and unable to be around several days after the battle. Joe Skovholt. the All-American goal-keeper for the “African-Ben-gals,” while stopping a wild drive from the puck of an “Asiatic Ant-eater” was unconsciously knocked unconscious. Seven gallons of milk and three “punkie” pies, administered by Doc Oard, being needed to revive him. The outstanding star of the game was Albert Nelson, who showed his efficiency at handling the broom. The result of Nelson’s long training in the fastest game played could be readily seen by his hair-raising escapades during the contest. He managed to miss the puck and hit the ice at every swing. Last, but not least, as the old saying goes, was the “Pajamereeno Band.” They deserve creditable mention, as they furnished the crowd with a constant flow of melodious discords. Although suffering from extreme cold, they showed the true Science spirit by playing until the frigid, benumbed instruments refused to function. And that’s all of this. The Penny Carnival The Penny Carnival, the biggest event of the winter term, was held at the Gymnasium, Thursday, February 2S. The Carnival, an annual affair, had in previous years been staged for the benefit of the Agawasie and had netted in the neighborhood of $175; this year, however, the Agawasie did not need the assistance and the funds derived from the affair used for other purposes. Under the supervision of Manager John Lunday and his corps of assistants the proceeds passed the two century mark and set a record at $200.7S. When the plans were being considered by the Student Cabinet. John Lunday was chosen as manager and given complete control over every detail. He appointed his assistants and placed them in charge of the various departments. Orin My hre was given charge of the advertising; Marcella Morris, advance money sale; Frank Benda, the hamburger stand; Everett Garvey, Bowery Dance; Frank Schmitt and George Fisher, law and order; Miss Clark, Margaret Bernard, Fern Bradford, Alma Kjersen, Aagot Stubsjoen and Myrtle Fuder, fortune telling. The instructors placed in charge were Misses Walton and Madden. The Follies; Miss Forkner, the Tearoom; Mr. McMahon, a Melodrama; Mr. Masica, a Monologue. PACK TWK.XTV I'lVKThe Penny CarnivalTHE A G A W A § 1 E The girls of the school were drafted into the advance money sale under Marcella Morris. A Kewpie doll was offered as a prize for the girl selling the most money and at the close of the campaign was awarded to Irma Walters for sales amounting to ten dollars. The day of the great event was a half-holiday; no classes met in tho afternoon and the students taking part in the several activities were busy at the Gymnasium making final preparations. At 4:30 the parade formed and. led by the orchestra in the truck, proceeded through the important streets or the city. All feature shows were represented in this huge procession and even Barney Google consented to having Spark Plug participate. The gypsy fortune tellers in native costume and riding in a genuine Romany vehicle brought up the rear of the parade. At seven o’clock the doors of the Gymnasium were opened to the public and Hie performances begun. The main floor attractions, the regular carnival departments, got under way first. At the “Exchange” the patrons of the carnival purchased Carnival Money from Cashier Mrs. McClintock and were prepared for the evening's occurences. Frank Benda, Kenneth Bute and Joseph Skovholt were catering to the public taste and satisfying their customers to such a great degree that tlie supply of Hamburgers and Hot Dogs was exhausted before the evening was much more than half over. In the booth next to the Hamburger stand was the Incubator Baby. This was an imported novelty, the baby being none other than Kenneth Eckes, local heavy-weight. The nurse in charge of the infant was Mable Marick who, we must admit, certainly had her arms full when she had to walk the floor with the child—if she did. Gordon Reeder was in charge of this attraction and spared no effort or expense in obtaining the child lor the entertainment. The Tea Room was the ideal place for refreshment. Miss Forkner was in direct supervision of the room and had, with the help of her assistants, made a neatly and daintily decorated Japanese Tea Garden. Julia Gaukler. Lucile Hess, Laura Holthusen, Kathleen Kane, Alice Rassier, Angeline and Caroline Schmitt, Henrietta Seidl, and Mary Sundell acted as assistants to Miss Forkner. The Athletic Show, conducted under Lloyd Fisher featured boxing matches, masked and mounted wrestling and a young contortionist. Hilaxion Bergman, local ten year old hoy, surprised and entertained the sport fans with his feats of athletic skill and contortions. Other participants were Carl Casperson, Tliore Hawk, John Nellermoe, Joseph Skovholt, Martin Vooge and Frank Welch, John Koch, Jr., and Clare Canham. “Carnegie” Ogland and Thore Hawk managed the Nigger Baby Stand and with their taunts kept some would-be pitchers in action until lameness overtook them. At the Novelty Booth Theodore Braun and Ormenso Bjork retailed PAGE TWENTY-SEVENTHE A (5 A W A § I E confetti, balloons, and mysterious packages as fast as they possibly could and, they say, “When we were sold out, we quit.” Mine. Clark and her gypsy maidens told fortunes, past, present and future by cards and palmistry and enlightened patrons as to the things in store for them. The maidens were Misses Bernard, Bradford, Kjersen, and Stubsjoen. The south part of the main floor was reserved for dancers. The musicians composing the orchestra were Van Wechel, banjo, Olson, violin. Ehlers, drum and Sundcll and Garvey alternated at the piano. The dance was operated on the bowery plan and netted a neat sum. The shooting gallery was a regular fort with Sergeant Nelson in command. Nelson’s orderlies were James Book and Gerhard Hektner. Lester McDougall and Hugh Mangskau managed the General Refreshment stand. Their supply of pop. candy, gum and the like was soon exhausted as a result of their vocal prowess and salesmanship. And all over the place roamed the Police and Mickey. The policemen enforcing laws and maintaining order and Mickey Oard acting as Big Noise or General Announcer. The police force was composed of Chief Frank Schmitt and Patrolmen G. Fisher and Ulsaker. Law violators were brought before Judge Harold Myhra for trial. Downstairs were the Follies, the Court of the Carnival King, School Days, and the check room. The Follies, under the direction of Misses Walton and Madden, featured choruses, silent drama. Baby Sisters. Hawaiian dancer and Vaudeville. The opening chorus, “I Love the Girl who Kisses.” was sung by Hugo Johnson assisted by a chorus of seven girls who gave, in addition, a neat exhibition of dancing. Harry Davis and Orlando Lebacken, Baby Sisters, sang the “Baby Sister Blues” in a soul stirring manner that made the hardest hearts go out in sympathy to the poor little dears. Gertrude Huppeler was the popular young lady and Myrita Morrow her maid in the pantomime presenting the love affair that might be entitled “Getting Gertie’s Goat.” Messrs. Rosholt, Lebacken, Myhre, and Hadrich were suitors who, when rivals appeared, were turned into furniture—until Salty sneezed and spoiled it all. The silent drama was a romantic production with western atmosphere— real Indians n’everything. The plot was read by Miss Madden as the acting progressed. The play centered about crooked Indians and sweet prairie flowers. The acting was excellent, the strongest acting occuring as “the sun set and the moon rose.” The participants in this playlet were Marcella Morris, I-Iedwig and Emma Brunner, Marie Koch. Hazel Burnsun. Francis Morris, Orin Myhre, Floyd Hadrich, Hjalmer Rosholt, Bud Shier, and Herman Holland. Myrita Morrow gave an Hawaiian dance accompanied by the Brunner sisters with Hawaiian guitars. The clown chorus concluded the program with a clever “take-off” on the initial chorus and gave an acrobatic exhibition I'.USK TWKXTY-EIOIITT HI E I E The Follies Court of the Carnival KingTHE n e in connection. The clowns were Elfreda Berndt, Eva Burnson, Gertrude Huppeler, Myrita Morrow, Evelyn Stimson, Elaine Waite, and Inna Walters. Between acts Claudius Sundell gave several piano selections and vaudeville skits. Lauretta Wolfe and Charlotte Peterson were pages. The Court of the Carnival King was a thrilling melodrama of love and war. David Larin was the stern ruler who was kept busy trying to decide which of Hie two suitors. Harlequin (Hugo Johnson) and Pagliaccio (Axel Lilja) should marry Princess Columbine (Fred Jones). After various plans had failed the king arranged for a duel. Pagliaccio demanded a duel in the dark with broadswords. Twas done! When the lights were again turned on Pagliaccio was found to have vanquished the villain Harlequin and won the hand of Columbine. Mr. McMahon played the part of Cutemoff, Lord High Executioner, who was always trying to massacre the court fool Hartkoff (William Burnson). Sansborn and Swenson were attendants and played the parts of Thunder and Lightning respectively. As a feature of the play gore, specially prepared, was given off by a cabbage •head severed from the body of Harlequin. Gus Edwards School days suffered a postponement at nearly curtain time. The festivities closed in the wee sma' hours and the concensus of opinion the next morning was that the half-holiday had occured too soon. The Athenian Literary Society The Athenian Literary Society was organized in response to a crying need for some such student group. Not only did we wish to give our literary lights a chance to shine and to improve their scint.ellations but we realized the need of a strong organization to unify school activities. Accordingly, those infused with the spirit of the enterprise held a meeting. A constitution was adopted and the following officers elected: Evangeline Burnson. President; Marie Koch, Vice-President; Orin Mylire, Secretary and Treasurer. The first program and dance of the Athenian Literary Society was of an informal nature, calculated more for entertainment than for edification. Among the numbers that entertained a highly interested audience was a vocal solo by Hugo Johnson, a violin solo by Elmer Olson following. Next came a number of impromptu speeches by Fred Jones, Ormenso Bjork, Axel Lilja, Professor McMahon, Miss Clark and William Burnson. Some very interesting ideas were gained from the topics of the above mentioned speakers. However the subjects discussed involved many technicalities which space does not permit us to go into. The male quartette closed the program with the song, “I Love You ' The rest of the evening was devoted to dancing. i i;k tiiihtyTHE A G A W A § 1 E February the twenty-first was the date of the second meeting of the Athenian Literary Society. Piano numbers, readings, several orchestra selections, and a general discussion preceded an evening of dancing at the close of which a delicious lunch was served. On Wednesday evening, March 20. another meeting of the Athenian Literary Society was held at the Gymnasium. Professor Masica acted as chairman of the ceremonies. The program included a vocal solo by Hugo Johnson, a paper by Miss Stubsjoen; a talk by Miss Burbank; a discussion by Professor McMahon; and an address by Miss Mirick. The chairman also called on Coach Stenhoff, Professor Cavanaugh and Miss Clark for impromptu speeches. After the program a pleasant time was enjoyed by indulging in a few games, after which luncheon was served. First Lyceum Course Program Miss Lia Eckes. former Science School student, appeared in conceit at the Opera House. Monday, November 5. Miss Eckes is a Walipeton girl who left seven years ago to continue her voice training in Chicago. She has devoted the past three or four years almost entirely to lyceum work. Miss Eckes has an unusually beautiful voice and a charming personality. Her interpretations ol the operatic selections were especially fine. Flawless technic, together with an artistic temperament are the attributes which combine to make Miss Eckes a real artist. Conservatory talent assisted Miss Eckes at the concert. Miss Byrne, whose ability as a pianist is recognized, played two selections. Two numbers by Evangeline Burnson and Isabel Olson, violinists, proved to be popular with the audience of music lovers. Jan Chiapusso Friday, January IS. marked the date of the second of a series of concerts given under the auspices of the Conservatory of Music. Jan Chiapusso. the soloist, is a pianist of great merit. He is of Dutch and Italian parentage but received the greater part of his education in France. His concert tours have covered practically every European country and he is now touring the United States. The Walipeton Conservatory is to be congratulated upon booking Mr. Chiapusso. Remarkable brilliancy and a beautiful singing tone, are a combination which few pianists attain. Mr. Chiapusso’s playing combined these two qualities. Several Science School students had the opportunity of meeting this artist at the reception which Miss Byrne gave in bis honor after the concert. It was interesting to learn from Mr. Chiapusso that next to Russian audiences, American audiences are the most responsive and appreciative. IWOE TlllllTY-O.NKA Q A W A Third Lyceum Number What proved to he a most novel and interesting program was presented at the Opera House, Tuesday, February 12. Harold Loring, famous lecturer, had as his subject,"Indian Music.” and was assisted by Young Bear, a Sioux Indian, in full Indian regalia. Mr. Loring, who has been closely associated with a number of Indian tribes gave some interesting side lights on beliefs and lives of the aborigines. He explained many of their customes, stressing their music particularly. His assistant, Young Bear, reproduced several Indian songs, as they were originally sung. One of the most entertaining numbers on the program was an Indian War Dance by Young Bear. December 14. Dear Uncle Wiggly: • You missed it. You should have been here. Even as cheerful a person as yourself would admit that it was fun. What am I talking about? Our skating parties. Tuesday afternoon a big sign was put up—“Skating Party—Divets Slough— Get Your Skates”—and I rushed home aud dug my reminders of Hans Brinker-ian days out of the moth balls. A perfect sheet of ice, smooth as your very head, a full orange moon, the scrape of tinkling skates, the hearty laughter of skaters. A fire casting its flickerings across the silvered ice—well I never forget it? And really, Uncle, roastered wieners and marshmallows are delicious. Thursday evening we had another skating party as wonderful as the first one. But until the next one. Uncle Wiggly, I am Lovingly, Me. February 2. Dearest Uucle Wiggly: Small but 0 mi! Or should I say (not in accents wild as our Bill Burnson would say) “Quality not quantity.” No, there were not so many there that the crowd hung on the parallel bars of the gym because—gracious, there I go again. You’re right, Uncle, my bobbed head always permits ideas to go off on a tangent. I'm telling about the dance of the Men’s Glee Club, given last night. O yes, I did get a “bid”—now don’t smile because I didn’t get one—and I had the bestus time. Absolutely, b’gosh. Pardon me. Uncle, I know you don’t like slang but then me is me. The music would have made a paralyzed man jiggle and I ?—it was Forbes, of course. A little past twelve w»hen we foxtrotted (no, not waltzed) Home Sweet Home. But, Uncle yet I am Lovingly, Me.

I didn't write last week so I’ll combine two in one—with apologies to tne t.iree in one or newspaper lame. Oh, you know—no, you don't but I’m going to tell you about it. Well, anyway, after the St. John’s University basketball game a dance was held.—Yes, of course, I a.ways have fun. And then, last night alter the GusIuyus Adolphus game— darn it, Oh gee, Uncle, I forget I’m a lady—which we lost,we danced on our dead hopes a la stoic, until the wee hour of half past twelve. Between rooting and dancing I am a tired, tired girl today. “Foolish," I can hear you say in your funny way. But after all we aren’t all mortals—and Science dances are so interesting. Lovingly, Me. December 23 Dearest Uncle Wiggly: What a rip roarin’ success was our Christmas party, held on Thursday, December 21! Everything worked as smoothly as a new Inger-sol. We met at Bugbee's Corner and went in a body over to Gilles’ Theatre, where “The Girl of the Golden West" was being shown. Uncle, that night I made up my mind that if noise was pep our school certainly wasn't seriously lacking it. After the show, we formed double ranks, and boisterously took possession of the entire street. By the time we reached the Science Gymnasium many were forced to converse in hoarse whispers due to over exertion of their vocal organisms. The uniqueness and originality displayed in the hall decorations did full justice to the importance of the occasion. Nothing necessary to promote the Yuletide spirit had been omitted; for one end of the hall was occupied by a realistic fireplace and a real Christmas tree. The grand march, in which nearly every one participated, was followed by circle two steps and various other games. Santa Claus and his pack then made their appearance, and at once became the center of attraction. Each person was presented with a little gift. After popcorn balls had been passed around, dancing began in earnest. As the dance progressed the hall was suddenly transformed into a crimson fairyland, by the illumination of two seemingly magic candles. When the final number was played we wallflowers even admitted that the fun had just begun. Isn't that conclusive proof that our Christmas party was a success? Until next time. Your loving niece, Me. PACK TIIIUTY-TIIIIKKFebruary 15. Dear Uncle Wiggly: I wish you could have been at our Valentine Party last night because it was the best of the year with the exception of the Christmas party. The decorations were extremely artistic, with red hearts very much in evidence. The lighting effect, which was secured by covering the lights with red paper, appealed to everybody. Soon after arriving we were presented with paper hearts of varied colors and after keeping us in suspence half the evening, a grand march was announced and we were instructed to find partners by matching hearts. Shortly after the grand march, the “Masked Dancers.” who had been advertised for the party, made their appearance and danced a Spanish Dance in costume. However, they forgot to wear their masks and we had no difficulty in recognizing Marian Carney and Bill Burnson. Another special feature of the party was a Hawaiian dance to the accompaniment of the Brunner Sisters Stringed Orchestra. There have been various reports as to the identity of the dancer but nobody seems inclined to take the credit for the dance. We have decided that she must have been imported for the occasion. After the Hawaiian dance, Mike Mvhra gave the ‘‘Dance of the Seven Valentines." Mike is a real clown and if he lacked grace it was made up for by suppleness. Twelve o’clock came altogether too soon and we turned our weary steps homeward. Our only regret is that we can’t have school parties several times a week instead of so rarely. You can expect to hear from me again when something interesting happens here. Until then. Lovingly, Me. »AGE TIIIItTY-KUUK l!'ll■Illlll !ll1IIlI l!ll?!l!W!nlllI!Hllll!l!! l1t !llll!l1llf i iiiiiiiiiii!i!Hiii8iiiniHfliii!nii Biinf nn't'finriiFiirrr' iKr’ iiiiEiii Bf upiiHHitiiiifiiiimiiiiiitsiiirnfKTHE A G A W A S H E - -■ v V T ATHLETICS 'V SC N.

Confronted with as many perplexing situations as a Mali Jong player, he possessed the patience of a Nightingale, the craft of an Achilles and the determination of a mule driver—we'll all agree that he needed these many virtues—and succeeded in guiding the Red and Black through a successful season. Practice started December 5th with tile Lunday brothers, Huss, and Larin, of last year’s squad reporting. In addition to these four veterans, promising material in the persons of Swenson, Nellermoc. Ulsaker, Morris and Early drew suits. December 13th the Red and Black defeated the Brcckenridge Independents in a ragged 19 to 16 battle. Hadrich enrolled and materially strengthened the team at running guard. On December 19th the Scientists, showing far better form than the previous week, gave the Independents a healthy 3S to 13 walloping. Immediately after the holidays, Stenhoff's proteges tackled the Park Region College basketeers at Fergus Falls. The Lutherans put up a great scrap, Science managing to edge out a 19 to 17 lead the iirst half. The next period the Parkies made a desperate attempt to tie up the game, succeeding in evening up the score at 21 all, a final spurt by the black-edged Scientists giving us a 31 to 26 victory to put down in the book. A 50 to 21 win over the Park Region Aggies was the third entry on the credit side of our score sheet. Then came a two day trip. The Scientists invaded the lair of the Minot Normal. The game was one of the hardest fought that Science played this year. At the end of the first half. Science led by a 15 to 14 score. At the opening of the second period the two teams went at it with all the vigor of a Dempsey-Firpo scrap. With a minute and a half to play, we took a one point lead only to have Minot heave in a long shot winning the game for them. Tired out by their hard battle of the previous.night, and with John Lunday on the sidelines as the result of a bad cold. Science lost a loosely played 12 to 20 game to the Valley City Teachers College. Mayville Normal was spanked on our floor in a one sided 43 to 10 game on Jan. 19. After threatening the S to 11 lead of the Moorhead State Teachers College rolled up at the end of the first half, on their own floor, the Science defense was unable to cope with the lucky heaves that the PAGE TIIIUTY-KIGMTI IS E Peds rained at the basket, and dropped the game with a 15 to 30 tally. Each time the Red and Black invades the Moorhead camp, the up river crew plays their best game of the season, and this tilt was no exception to the rule. One fond memory of this trip will always remain with the Science team—that of Coach Stenhoff doing the Paddock act in trying to catch the Oriental Limited as it led him out of the station by a 15 yard handicap; also his furious attack upon the defenseless hotel clerk. Once again the Goddess of Fortune failed to smile on Science at the critical moment and in the last minute and a half of play. Hurst’s Valley City Teachers connected with a long basket which snatched an IS to 19 victory from the confident Science hands. St. John’s University of the Minnesota Conference was next entertained by the Science hoop artists Jan. 31. The largest crowd of the season watched the Red and Black take the first half by an IS to 15 count. The second half brought the crowd to its feet, the lead constantly shifting from one side to the other. A glance at the score board shows the type of game played: 24 to 25, 26 to 26. 2S to 27. 30 to 30. the score tied with two minutes to play. St. Johns feinted a stall and then heaved at the hoop from the center of the floor, the ball balancing on the rim for a second that seemed an hour to the crowd, then slowly toppled in. a victory for the Johnnies. Taking advantage of the California weather, the team motored to Ellendale to cake an easy game from the EUendale X. I. Score 27 to IS. Coach Stenhoff’s Alma Mater, Gustavus Adolphus, another Minnesota conference team, although out-scored by the Science squad in the last half, had established too much of a lead to he overcome, their superior height and reach enabling them to take our measure by a 23 to 32 score. The large crowd that came expecting to see a hair raising battle had their expectations more than fulfilled. The Seconds were given a chance to do their stuff in the last of the EUendale ,N. I. game played here on Feb. 12. The Seconds held their own the visitors and a 30 to IS victory was turned in for Science. With three quarters of the game over, and the score standing at .5 to 25 in favor of Lie Moornead Teachers CoUege, the most optimistic Science fan did not dare to hope for victory when lo and beho.d! Science stepped out and took the game, dropping the sphere through the net with clock like regularity, meanwhile holding the Moorhead scoring machine to no points. The Score? Say it good and loud. 2S to 25 in our favor. It was one of the be. t games ever seen on gym floor. The strong Fargo K. C. Team in a slow game squeezed out a 1 point victory. This last game of the season went to them by a 21 to 25 score. I A UK TWISTY-.NINETHE A G A W A S H E Lyle Luiulay finished his third consecutive year as forward on the Science squad. He is one of the Ilyest forwards in the conference. Lyle made 110 points in spite of the fact that he was always covered by the best guard of the opposing team. John Lunday rounded out two very successful years as a running partner for his brother. John’s best play was to intercept a pass at the center of the floor and dribble down for a shot. His dead-eye accounted for 113 points. PAGE FORTYTHE A C A W__A_ S I______E Dave Larin at center was the third member of our three man scoring machine. He was always in the open a n (1 w a s responsible f o r many spectacular shots. Dave was high point man on the squad last year and this. His place will he hard to fill next year. Dave counted 15S points. Floyd Iladrich showed exceptional form at running guard and relieved us of much worry from that section. His ollicial position was running guard but most ol' the season he jumped center and dropped back to guard. Height and reach enabled him to get the tip-off against all opponents. i-.vsk i muty-mm-:1 IE Oliver Muss has been the cause of unlimited sensations on the side lines. Ollie delights in standing perfectly still until the ball hits the backboard and then leaping about three feet into the air and getting a clean pass off almost before reaching the floor again. As a guard. Ollie never gave us one minute of fear. Rudolph Swenson was substitute guard but did not get a chance to show his ability to a very great extent.

S. S. Orchestra The first call for recruits for the Orchestra was issued by Mr. Masica on September 28, and at the first rehearsal, the outlook for a large orchestra was hopeful. Latter the number dwindled down, to five members; Hazel Burnson at the piano, Orlando Lebacken on the clarinet, Orrin Myhre on the baritone. Eva Burnson and Mr. Masica, violinists. This noble body made its debut at assembly and was received with much applause. Since that time they have graced the assembly on many occasions and have always been greeted with much applause and enthusiasm. The Orchestra also played at several Athenian programs and all who heard their music considered it excellent. Mr. Masica, the director and a violinist of rare ability, has been the main stay of the orchestra and deserves a great deal of credit for the success of the organization. .Mixed Ulee Club President—Evangeline Burnson Vice-President— Secretary and Treasurer—Hazel Burnson Librarian—David Larin Jr. Director—Hugo Johnson The Mixed Glee Club which is composed of sixteen members is one of Uhe most influential and commendable organizations in school. It was necessary to change the membership several times but the good work has constantly been kept up and will undoubtedly continue through the year. It began its career as a double quartet but after losing three members at the end of the first term, it was reorganized with additional members. Regular practices have been held on Monday evenings and those who are fortunate enough to belong to the club, •have gained some valuable experience. Plans are now under way for an operetta to be given some time in the spring. There is no doubt but that it will be a success. I'AUK FOUTY-KKSII I’THE A AWA IE Honorary “S” Club The Honorary "S” Club was organized by the letter men of the State School of Science in April 1923 for the purpose of fostering a higher standard of athletics. Due to the influence of the club the Red and Black 4‘S" is awarded to a candidate only after a careful scrutiny of his record and is truly an insignia of honor.

The membership of the club is open to all men of the school regardless of previous experience in glee club work. Hugo Johnson’s efforts have been well rewarded and in spite of their lack of confidence the.boys have produuced some very creditable music. There is a general aversion to singing tenor among these aspiring warblers which results in lack of balance of pans but through various means a few of the more audacious members •have been inveigled into climbing the scale. The main incentive to the organization of this club was the individual benefit the members would receive but incidentally they have furnished some very enjoyable numbers at school programs and other entertainments.

I beseech you, pardon me.” “No, forgiveness shall never be yours for that felonious assault. You must leave me at once, forever and anon.” Poignant tears of genuine regret filled his eyes. He pleaded in vain. Such a deed could ne’er be undone. She was lost to him. He said he would go, but his whole life would be embittered. Never could the beautiful image be effaced from 'his memory. Never would be forget that passionate kiss, stolen ’neath the Cerulean stars and moon. “I will go,” he murmured sadly, “But before I leave you, there is one thing that I beg of you. one thing.

Why I Like Two Girls of Seventeen Better Than One of Thirty-four. Gentlemen and Bricklayers: The topic assigned to me by Mr. Anderson is one of vital interest to all men—pardon me. Mr. Lebacken, I meant you also. To get back to my subject: it is, as I have said, of vital interest to all men. It stands to reason that a woman of seventeen causes only one half as much misery as a damsel of thirty-four, being of one half the age. Naturally you would expect a man of hoary years to use a great deal of diplomacy in dealing with a woman of mature age, namely at the age of thirty-four, and only those of exceptional brilliance, such as our Mr Johnson and Mr. Lebacken. whose powers with the weaker sex are an undoubted success, would have the hardihood to argue with a woman past the age of seventeen. The reason is because at thirty-four a woman knows just twice as much as when five-tenths of that age. Therefore it follows that man as a gay deceiver will stand just one half as much chance of deceiving the maid of thirty-four summers : s compared to seventeen. Therefore I have come to the conclusion that man is not as far advanced in civilization as a woman of thirty-four; in other words lie is not ready to approve this age in a woman. Man’s logic may he applauded quite as much as the woman who went lo a photographers gallery and asked the proprietor if he took pictures of children. "Yes, indeed." replied the man. “And how much are they?" she said, referring to the price of the photographs of the children. "Three dollars a dozen." “Well.” said the woman disappointedly, “I guess I will have to come back later. I’ve only got eleven now.” By the process of deduction you can now understand why I prefer two girls of seventeen to one girl of thirty-four. I'AHK SEYKNTY-TW-J17920076THE A G A W A S I! E Dec. 10th.
