and independent departments: the Junior College and the Trade School.
The equipment of the Trade School consists of a number of shops fitted
with machinery necessary to the training of apprentices in various trades. Here the instruction is limited strictly to the trade concerned. In the Trade School are three classes of students: those with limited education who find it necessary to concentrate attention in learning a trade; those with a greater degree of education who desire to give all of their time to shop work; and those who desire to divide their time between shop work and academic work. The last group may be registered both in the Trade School and in the Junior College. We have succeeded in organizing trade work for needs and conditions in an agricultural state to such a degree that the work done here is referred to in other states as the “North Dakota Idea." I wish that
this line has added to our reputation.
The Junior College is composed mainly of two classes of students: those preparing for senior college work or for professional schools who desire to

Space does not permit a detailed account of the various ways in which this association of departments works to the advantage of all. 'This brief definition, however, seems the best response that I can give to the editor's request that I “say something about our school.

11K Commercial Depart mem forms one of the most important div-isions of the Science School and always attracts many students.
The courses it offers arc many and varied: courses giving college
credit for Junior College students planning to specialize in business at a university, courses of preparatory school grade for students in the last two years of high school who desire some business training, and courses for mature and well qualified students who desire intensive training leading to immediate earning power in business occupations.
The vocational or business college character of this division is outstanding. Students arc here trained directly for the job in short but intensive and thorough business courses.
A commercial education, such as is gained here is a certain guarantee of earning power in a pleasant occupation: it is an absolute necessity to anyone who looks forward to success in a business career.-™r—T-"' « -
Tllll-. Science Club, among ihe main clubs formed • , ,

members practice in club work.
Any students of the school, who are in a Science class or who are interested in Science are eligible to become active members. The meetings, with special programs and entertainments arranged for. were held even-other Thursday night at the gymnasium.
A number of scientific talks, interesting lectures, and educational debates were given during the year: the club even made attempts at performing psychic mysteries which were of great interest and amusement.
The club had as its class advisors. Professors Cavanaugh and Tarney
and with their co-operation and that of a lively group of members, lias been much of a success.
The officers for the year were: First term—President. John I-cut finer. Vice-President. Alice Pussier: Secretary and Treasurer. Hugh M.mgskau. Second term President. Frederick K. Jones: Vice President. William P. Schmitt: Secretary and Treasurer. Mabel (». (Iran.

I IK Knglish, History, and Language students at Science comprised the membership of the Arts Club. This society was organized for the purpose of fostering work in these various arts during the school year, thereby inciting greater interest in these courses.
The meetings were held monthly and after the business had been transacted. entertainment programs followed. The members enacted sketches, gave readings and musical numbers, discussed dramatics, and talked on humorous subjects. Usually after the programs the evenings were spent socially when card playing and dancing were enjoyed.
This Club is a typical Science School organization and with the aid of its competent advisors, Professor McMahon. Miss Clark, and Miss Davis, has achieved its purpose.
It had as class officers during the year: President, Kvangelinc Burn-
son: Vice President, Axel l.ilja; and Secretary and 'Treasurer, l.cnore
Ufoitorarj “S ’ Club
TlHIi Honorary “S” Club is an organization of the “letter men” of the college. The primary purpose f the club is tin- upholding of the high standard of athletics at Science and the continuing of friendships built up on the athletic field.
In order to increase the school spirit aroused by the record which the athletes of the S. S. S. have made in the past two years, and to give the boys the recognition they so richly deserved, the school confers on those who have represented it in contests, the highest honor which it is in her jvnver to bestow, the red and black "S".
The "S’ is awarded to those who have played in the various Science teams during the season, and whose sportsmanship has endured throughout that time.
The two-letter men. Lawrence l lsaker. George I’isher. Rudolph Swenson. and John Nellcrmoe arc leaving this spring and their loss will be felt next year.
The officers for the year were: President. Lawrence I Isaker: ice-

"Tj.ri VI VI! The cheery veil of the oui-door lusties resounds through ' wood and dale. A club that’s formed for outdoor sports, school pep and good times of all sorts.
This body was organized early last fall and has sponsored many lively doings. No ends of fun can be had at the various hikes, sleigh-rides, and other out-door amusements that it undertakes. A merry bunch of students always appear at the meetings and whenever the club “took a trip”, “cat-men ts” were not forgotten. Stunts, games, and songs about the lire follow-
Its first meeting was held the evening of the tenth of December when about forty Science students gathered at the main building and hiked along the river. Because of the pleasure derived from this event more of them followed throughout the winter.
This club has been very active in promoting school spirit and in furthering good fellowship among the students of the school.
The officers for the year were; President, John l.euthner; Vice President, George A. Fisher; and Secretary and Treasurer, Donald l.arin.

7 I IK Commerce Club was instituted for the purpose of bringing stud-cuts into closer relations as a whole with the practical side of business life, as well as for offering social diversion to the members of the department. Any student taking a subject of Commerce was eligible for membership in the club.
Through the efforts of Peter V. Masica and Miss Walton, the advisors, the members of the Commerce Club have been afforded a delightful combination of both education and pleasure. The meetings have always been well attended and the parties successful. After a business discussion the members enjoyed refreshments and were entertained by dancing and cardplaying.
The officers for the year were President, h.siher Jacobson: ice-President, Hazel Brolander. and Secretary-Treasurer. (.Jeraldine Klein.
HIS club, is open to all members taking I Ionic Kconomics anil lias been formed with three purposes:
To show the relation of home work to school work,
'l o unify the different phases of Home Kconomics, and To develop the civic responsibility of the girls.
The club meets every Tuesday afternoon in the lower parlor of Burch Hall. Once a month a social evening is celebrated and special preparation of foods, and health topics are discussed at the meetings. At times special meals are prepared and served.
By the knowledge gained from these talks and illustrations the girls realize the value that the learning gained at school has in the home.
The club was orgaini .cd this year and is a new one of its kind. It owes much of its success to its competent advisors. Miss Fork tier and Mrs. Fallcy.
The officers for the year were; President, Agnes Podliska; Vice-President, Ida (iarad; and Secret ary-Treasurer, Myrtle Lehman.

ot)£ .Academic (Club
UK Academic Club was the last club to organize. In fact, its organiza-
tion is so recent that little has been done this year in the matter of programs or social events.
After the various departments had organized, the high school students came to realize that they were practically excluded as members of any of the other clubs. Therefore they took it upon themselves to form their own organization. All lligh School students are eligible for membership.
Its purpose as defined in the constitution is to promote interest in social and declamatory activities, to hold programs and to conduct parliamentary practice.
In its work this year the club conducted an assembly program and held several meetings exclusive for members outside the club. ’Pile declamatory contest was also sponsored by this organization.
The officers for the year were: President. Axel l.ilja. Vice-President.

11H Printer's Club was organized on the 10th of January ami its object was to promote social intercourse among the members.
This organization met twice a month and some very interesting meetings resulted. The time was devoted entirely to entertainment and refreshments. In the course of the evening many original stories and jokes were told and remarkable inventive ability was manifested.
The members always enjoyed themselves to the utmost for they had no last minute worries of talks or lectures. However, they were always able to lake their parts as printers in the shop and could perform their work as well even though they did not exercise printers’ influence at their meetings.
The faculty advisor, II. U. Sattcrlec was always on deck. The officers for the year were: President Dale Ammerman, Vice President Ixrslie K.
Hull; and Secretary-Treasurer (iustav Anderson.
||K ‘lViulcs Club was active only during the middle term due to the X- fact that its members studied the courses taught in the winter months. Nevertheless, it was a wide awake organization while it existed for it was formed solely for the purpose of encouraging fellowship among the men along social lines.
The meetings were held once a month and were devoted entirely to entertainment and cats in the form of stag parties.
Much credit reflects on the faculty advisors; A. Y. Hopper;. J. Ness, and X. I . Simonson for the good times enjoyed and the better acquaintanceship gained by the members.
The officers for the year were: President, Herbert Dietz. Vice Presi-
dent. Kntil Sanders, Secretary-treasurer. Alfred l.iedtke and Reporter, (luerdon Duncan.
7 HE Electrical Club was organized early in the winter term. Ii was the largest and most active club i:i the whole school, perhaps due i the interesting electrical questions and problems that were discussed and experimented with at the meetings. The Club met bi-weekly and always had entertaining programs and served refreshments.
At each gathering a special feature of electricity was dealt with. For instance, when radio was discussed a receiving set was installed, and a radio program was enjoyed. At one time a spelling match of electrical terms was held. 'I'hc members were required to spell and give definitions of the words, thereby gaining both amusement and entertainment.
Interesting phases of the various electrical appliances and modes of generating electricity in foreign countries were related by some of the students and teachers.
The faculty advisors, l . II. Bernard and K. Larson gave the boys valuable assistance in the learning of their trade.
'I’hc officers for the year were: President, Marlowe Moses; ice
President, Herman Klingbcil; and Secretary-Treasurer, Thorc llawk.

Kl liOD'fc likes to hear a group of men's voices well trained. ThK iw organization is under the supervision of Ilugo Johnson. Tite training received is of much value both to the members and to those who hear them. The Men's (lice Club made their first bow to the school in Assembly early last fall and have appeared in groups several times since. At times when all of the men have been unable to participate, quartets or sextets were formed and their songs were always entertaining.
This club sponsored a public dance at the gymnasium during the winter and a large crowd attended.
A Glee Club should be formed in every school. It lends a musical atmosphere and promotes good singing by students learning.

7 I IIS year lias witnessed marked improvement in the progress of the S. S. S. Orchestra. I nder the leadership of Peter V. Masica it has “played” an important part in thcactiviticsofSciencc. Kvangcli nc Burnson, a senior, has played the violin for two years and shows special musical ability. She is a graduate of the Wahpeton Conservatory of Music and has traveled over a year with the Travers-Xewlon Chatitampia and the Community Lyceum. Sarah Jones, who plays the piano, is a member of which the school is justly proud. W ith these two and Grace Van Arnam. Marion Cox and Lawrence Peterson playing trombones the group has been ever ready.
While being an invaluable help to the individuals themselves, it has been of great service to the school by giving assistance in all its doings, because of its prominent part in our assemblies and great help at special programs, it deserves our highest praise and support.THIRTY-FIVE ----------©

During the year the student body has been kept well informed of the latest and most popular songs through the assembly entertainments. Much of the success of the school pertormanccs has been due to the ability of our trio.
While mentioning singing and music we are both proud a tut glad to mention the ability of Sarah Jones, soprano. Miss Jones has appeared in Assembly meetings a number of times and she well deserves the very hearty applause which always follows her numbers.

Florencc Vossi.ti T YDISTIIK students of the State School of Science during the year of t went v-four-i wen-tv-five, arc firm in their belief that the past year has reflected more credit on the school than any year since the establishment of the institution. With that judgment of ourselves in mind, the student body purposed to finish the achievements of the year by attempting to establish a precedent in year books, toward which end the members of the .Agawasie staff have labored.Ol)e Small fiica
SHORTLY after the advent of the establishment of the printing department at Science there arose the problem of something definite towards which the printing students could work for. II. B. Sattcrlcc, printing instructor, tumbled at the idea of publishing a small paper. The result was a three columned sheet of four pages produced and distributed at large among the students. The first issue met with hearty reception. The ultimate result of that first venture was the inauguration of a weekly publication, with a staff elected from the entire student body.
A few words about the name seems necessary as a matter of explanation. To the general readers the “Small Pica ' may or may not suggest anything. Some years ago a size of type, eleven points, was cast. Since twelve points make a pica, (a pica being a printers unit of measure) the eleven point was a point smaller so became known as the “Small Pica." Mr. Sattcrlcc conceived the idea of naming the paper. The publication was primarily intended as the printers sheet, therefore the peculiar title.
Its size has not been changed since the advent of the first issue. 'I here arc times when four pages are not sufficient to embody all the news, and the addition of a supplement was made use of. The size of the Pica, at times seemed quite a problem. Someone suggested making it a four columned sheet. After a thorough debate it was decided not to divert from the original size, but in eases where material abounded extra pages were added. The general run is four pages, bu» it has become very common this year, however. to print six and some times eight pages. Now and then a special edition is produced and in such cases the number of pages has mounted to sixteen.
We have tried to break away from the conventional type of junior college paper. This institution with its various departments demands a somewhat different publication. The Pica serves as a medium through which the students, the alumni and those interested arc being informed as to what this institution is doing.
This year Axel l.ilja and Frederick Jones appear under the mast head as editors. There are eight other members on the staff. Albert Nelson and l.cnorc Larin arc general news reporters. Sarah Jones is constantly on the watch for music notes and as member of the student cabinet acts as a reporter of its proceedings. Allen Nciscss is careful to see that nothing of social interest escapes his ken. This year a new department was added, that of alumni, with F.d. Schneider in charge. l he athletics is taken care of by Lawerence l lsaker. Marlowe Moses scans the exchanges for items of particular interest. The “Hell Box", a humrous column in the Pica, i kept alive by William Burnson. Mr. Sattcrlcc and Mr. McMahon arc ’o be thanked for their ever-ready advice.
The Pica, we believe, has been quite successful this year. Any compliments our publication may have received is not due to the editors alone, but to the efforts of the entire staff.

student cabinet is the governing body of the school. At the bc-ginning of the year candidates from the Junior College, two in number, one from the Commercial department and one from the High School, were voted for. ’Fhe president of the cabinet must be a Senior from the Junior College and the vice president, from the Junior College at large. These pupils represented their various branches of learinng in the ruling power of the students throughout the school year.
The cabinet nominates the editors for the school paper and the school annual, the business manager of the athletic association, and the director of the Penny Carnival. It decides the time and form of all school functions and appoints the entertainment and refreshment committees for the parties.
Appropriations for the various funds raised by the school activities are also determined by the cabinet.
The members of this departmental staff during the year were: President. William Burnson; Junior college. Cyrus Kahl: Commercial Department. Sarah Jones: and High School. Albert Nelson.I'irsi row, left to right.- Leuthner, Skovholt, Burnson. Ncllcrtnoc. Bute.

11M summons of Coach Bute f »r football candidates for the l‘)24 foot ' ball team was answered by many men who were willing to go through the hard grind of a training season to win a letter in football. The squad that reported was not impressive, viewing them from the standpoint of experience obtained in high school. W hat stamped them as a good squad was their willingness to work. Bute drove the men unmercifully hard after the first two weeks of practice, getting them ready for the first game. This hard training and the training rule was too much for some of the men and they dropped out. Still there were always two teams out for practice until the last two weeks of the season when only the first team and first string subs reported. These men were fighters, lighting for what they got and willing to light for what they sometimes did not get. That did not daunt the men, tliev were willing to work and do that much for their school. The Team should show much improvement next year because all of the men except four will be back for the season.
OACII Buie, present athletic director, is an alumnus of the school and
was one of its star athletes while he attended Science. In 1915 Bute won a letter in football, and baseball and in 1916 he duplicated this, also adding a letter in basketball. In 191” he was at his best for he captained the last champion conference football team that Science has turned out. Bute graduated from the State School of Science in 19IS.
Bute's athletic career was not to stop with the laurels won at Science. 'Phe year he graduated from Science School he entered the Agricultural College where he won three letters in football and basket ball and four letters in baseball, making ten letters that he won at the Agricultural College. Bute was a stca ly. consistent player in all three branches of sports but did his best work in football, where his team mates dubbed him Zip because of his speed and flashy open field running that made him a valuable man on the team.
Might years from the time lie entered this school as a high school senior he returned to Science School as head director of all athletics. Coach Bute is a young, ambitious coach who works hard to advance the school in the realm of sports. He has the ability to impart his fighting spirit and knowledge of the games to his protegees.
Considering the inexperienced material that Bute had to work with, he has had remarkable success for his first year as a coach. Bute s ability as a player, and his knowledge of men, and his pleasing way of smoothing out friction among the players arc the greatest assets that a coach can possess. The good will among the players of teams that he produced this year proves
of athletics the school will be represented by teams that are fighting near the top at all times.
The basketball team that he turned out this year was a true example of his ability to overcome obstacles, for in the middle of the season the team
his managing ability as a coach. The present Science School students and future students may rest assured that as long as Coach Bute is in charge
was broken up by two of his star players leaving school Coach was not to be beaten. Me promptly filled the gap with untried material that developed with amazing rapidity under his patient and diligent coaching.PORTV-FIVK

■ 1 UK football season of 1924 opened when Coach Buie issued a call on September 25 for football candidates. 'This call was answered by 25 men. Most of these were new men at the school and the season looked like a dark one. But through the unceasing work of Mr. Bute the men gradually rounded into something that resembled a football team. Then Coach Bute started a systematic process of making it into a machine.

PARK REGION GAME
October 11. Coach Bute led his (Iridders to Park Region for the first game of the season. The game was a very evenly matched game during the first three quarters. Both teams played a fair brand of football for an opening game, but the lack of practice was very much in evidence oil the part of both.
'Ehc red and black machine seemed to have the best of the game from the start. They worked the ball down the field for short gains several times but were unable to cross the Parkies goal line. During the fourth quarter of the game the Red and Black’s booted the ball between the posts for the lone score of 3-0.
Many of the students followed the team to Park Region to help them win. The rivalry between the two student bodies was plainly evident by the way they each tried to show the most loyalty to his own team.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------6A. C. FRESHMAN GAME
On October l«S the Scientists made a trip to Fargo to battle the Bison IVosh. This game was a fine exhibition of good heady football. The teams were so evenly matched that straight football would not advance the ball for either team. It was evident after the first few minutes of play that the score would be very low.
The first two periods the teams fought on even terms in the middle of the field. It was in the third quarter that the game was decided. The ball was put on the Bisons 6 yard line by some clever passing and exceptional punting. At this time our team called a conference and it was decided that a quarter back sneak would work. The signal for this play was called and when the players were untangled, the ball was over the line. John Leuthner succeeded in kicking the ball through the bars for the extra point. The score was 7 to 0 in favor of the S. S. S. The fourth quarter found the Bisons fighting desperately to get a touchdown and tic the score, but the Science team fought just as hard to keep them from scoring. The score just about indicates the superiority of our team for the element of luck did not enter into the opportunities to score.
On October 24 the Science Football squad met the Moorhead Teachers on the city playgrounds for the only home appearance of the season. The Science team seemed to have the best of the game during the first quarter. Thev drove the peds down the field for several gains but the peds tightened up as the Red and Black neared their goal line, making it impossible for Science to score.
At the end of the first half the game was scoreless but Fisher at center was badly hurt and had to be taken out of the game. This somewhat weakened our line but still the peds were held to a scoreless tic. The third quarter started with a change of tactics by both teams and a tightening up of the lines. Science opened up with a passing attack that drove the peds almost to their goal line.
The peds seemed to get the breaks when Science punted from the ten yilrd line but Moorhead succeeded in breaking through and blocking as well as picking up making a score for Moorhead. In the final quarter Moorhead made another score with a forward pass making the score 14 toO.

I ndauntcd by ihe score of the week before. October 2-1. Coach Rule journeyed north with his team to the Moore head Teachers strong hold. It was decided to play the teachers a second game just to avenge the defeat of the previous Saturday. We arrived at Moorhead full of confidence that had a better team than Moorhead, but this confidence received a severe jolt during the game for Moorhead succeeded in scoring 26 points to our points. One reason for this overwhelming score was after the first play of the game Captain Swenson was carried olT the field severely injured. He was lost to the team for the rest of the season. I lis absence was keenly felt during the Moorhead game for he was a great defensive player. Although we were hopelessly beaten our team never quit fighting until the final whistle ended the game. It was in the last few minutes of play that the S. S. S. was able to cross the Reds goal line. Our lone score of the game was the result of an intercepted pass by Kahl who made a beautiful seventy five yard run and crossed the goal line. The try for extra point was made by a drop kick which missed the bars by inches.
We closed the football season by making a trip to Jamestown to play the Jimmies on November 6. This game held many disappointments for the football team of the S. S. S. Just before the team left Wall pc ion Nov. 5 a large body of Science School students went to the train and wildly cheered the team as they were prepairing to leave.
The game was played on a cold windy day that nearly numbed the players and because of this cold and wind many fumbles were made on both sides. This game was what can be truly called a heart-breaking game, many times during the game our team succeeded in carrying the ball down near the Jimmies goal line when a fumble or dropped pass would end that attempt of ours to score. Undaunted by that reverse in a short time we would start another drive for the goal line but the same thing would happen again.
The Jamestown team’s first score was the direct result of three olT-sidc penalties being called on our team in succession, this putting the ball across for the count of 6. Their next score was made from an intercepted pass. W'c were unable to score until the last ten seconds of the game when our team carried the ball across the last chalk line for a count of 6. This score was made by a cleverly executed line buck.TV-TWO
HK Basketball season opened with bright prospects for a champion
ship team. The team developed rapidly under the careful coaching of Mr. Bute. After a few preliminary games played before Christmas, the season really opened with a game with the A. C. Frosh. In this game the Science School quint showed their fighting spirit. This game gave the Coach a chance to find their weaknesses and to correct them—which he did in very efficient manner. It was evident that he did a thorough job of wiping out pre-season weaknesses by the time we were scheduled to meet our first conference rivals, Kllcndalc. Our boys in a very pleasing and businesslike manner succeeded in tramping Kllcndalc into a . 4 to 19 mine of points.
By this time the team was working in a smooth machine-like manner. The team was proclaimed by the student body, to be one of the best that Science School had ever turned out. At this time, the fighting and “never-say-dic ’ spirit of both team and student body was put to the acid test.
Two of our regulars, the only two last years' letter men on the team, left school. The gap that was left in the first team was soon filled with men from the second team. These men had had less experience but each had that old Science School determination to make good.
The result was that in a few weeks the team was showing as much fight and scoring power as ever. The student body really deserves some, credit for this fine showing that the team made. In many schools the student body would have thrown up their hands and cried “no use" but Science School did not. They came out and put so much enthusiasm into their cheering, that the team just had to fight all the way through to win the games.
We have stated that the student body deserves some credit for this fine showing of the team, but most of the credit goes to the team who went out on the floor and fought against heavy odds to win these games. It was the Coach who instilled this fighting spirit into the team but it was the team that did the fighting.
After the smoke from a hard campaign had cleared away the percentage column of won and lost games found Science School standing third. Wc all feci that this has been a very successful season even though we did not win the championship of the conference.rilTY.TlIRBli

Kenneth’s ability to lit in either at guard or forward made him a valuable man on the squad. His best work was done at guard, where his ability to take the ball off the back board and good passing kept the ball out of our territory.

WAHPETON INCH SCHOOL
The opening game of the basket ball season was played with the W’ahpc-ton High School. Tltc game was slow and ragged, with the Wops having the edge in leant work.
There were times in the game when Science showed spurts of good basket ball. The game was uninteresting to a person that was interested in just basket ball. We watched the game to dope out tltc chances that the team had of developing into a contender for the Conference championship. The showing made by the “S’ men was not entirely satisfactory.
UK EC K EN K IDG E IN DEPENDENTS
On Friday, the 16. the Brcckenridge Independents came over to Science with the hope in their hearts of doing what the Wops had done, but that was not to be. The offense that the Science leant used swept the Brccken-ridge team off their feet The defense simply stopped each play of the opposition dead. The winning of this game did not please us nearly so much as did the development that the team showed over their previous games. In this game good passing and good shooting was evident. It was simply a stream of baskets that went through the hoop in the last half.riKTV-SIX
A. C. FRKSIIMFN
On December 19 the Science School team journeyed to Fargo to » lav the A. C. Freshmen. This game was featured by listless playing on the Scientists’ part. The reason for this, so some of the boys say, was that they felt that they should be hoif.c for vacation. They could almost smell that turkey cooking. Yc think that is the reason they lost the game. Hut “ tis an ill wind that blows nobody good". It gave the coach an opportunity to correct many faults that were displayed, lie did this correcting in a very thorough manner as was apparent at the next game.
I’or the first game of 1925 a very determined group of students and the team from Park Region came to Science School for a big win. These same people went back with the determination but not the win. Facli team had the best of support from the crowd. There was almost as much rivalry between the cheering sections as there was between the teams.
Just two minutes after the game started there was a deluge of baskets that pounced onto our score column. Before the half was ended the Park Region team was dizzy watching the ball sail through the basket. 'Flic second half was not such a classic brand of basketball as the first half because many substitutes were used by the coach just to give them a chance to show their claim to a place on the first team.
Fllcndale was the next victim of our prowess. They came to our school with the same high aspirations that Park Region came with, and they went home without even their “hope to win" feeling. 'Phis was a real contest between sportsmen; each team fought to get the win. but fought clcanlv. The game was not marred by any rough playing, only a few fouls being called on each team.
The team was wildly cheered bv the student body who were out cn masse to help the team win. The cheering of the students seemed to carry the team over the hardest places in the game. 'Flic team and the student body were working in perfect harmony. The win that we got from Kllcndalc was very pleasing to us for it was the first conference game we played.
After the game a dance was given to which the Kllcndalc players were invited.INDIANS
The next game on our basket ball schedule was a game with the Indians. The Science School team was handicapped over there by the small floor of the Indian School Gym. The game was quite fast and the Indians were unable to penetrate our defense for short baskets. Consequently they resorted to long shooting which was not so effective as our short shots were. In this game every man on the squad played at least a few minutes.
The last few minutes of the game found the Indians and the second team battling on even terms. The Indians had a world of speed, but their passing was not of the best. Science won the game by a 15 to 28 margin.
February I the Science School team started with flying colors on a trip to Mayville. The game that was played there was a fine cxibition of good basket ball. Our team was seriously hampered by a small floor and low ceiling. This fact evidently kept the Science team from piling up a much larger score. During the last half our team displayed their speed by scoring 12 points to the opponents 2.
After the game was over a very nice party was arranged by the students of Mayville Normal. The Science School team was cordially invited. The bovs all enjoyed the dance very much and expressed the wish that they could play more games at Mayville.
THE MOORHEAD GAME AT MOORHEAD
The Science C’agers finished their Mayville trip by playing Moorhead at the Moorhead I ligh School Gym. Our team determined to give Moorhead j|,c toughest battle they ever played but we were doomed to defeat in the end. The game was tied five times during the progress. It was one of those close games that brings the crowd to its feet in a wild frenzy when either side looped a basket. First Moorhead would gain a point and then Science would gain one. etc. At the end of the half the score stood 16-15 in our favor. Moorehcad sent in a few subs at the start of the half to give the first men a chance to rest for a few minutes because the terrific pace set by teams was beginning to tell on the men. Science was unable to send jn subs to take the place of the regulars because of the small number of men taken on the trip. The score was knotted at 25 all. with two minutes left to plav and both teams strived to break the tie. Moorhead slipped in a basket. •| |K-y took the lead. Science tried hard to tie them but with only a minute to play. A foul was called on Science which Moorhead made good, making ,hc score . loorhead 28:S. S. S. 25. The gun sounded immediately afterward.MAYYIIXE-SCIENCE GAME (at Wahpeton)
After defeating the Mayvillc Normal by a very close score at Mayvillc, enthusiasm of the players and students was at a high pitch when the visitors came to play Science a return game.
The teams seemed to be well matched in size and speed if sizing up quints before a game is of any value.
The game started rather slowly, both teams seemingly waiting to sec what tactics the opposing players would adopt. Towards the end of the first quarter however, the players were well warmed up and showed the old fight which previously characterized them. The second and third quarters will always be remembered as being filled with an intense fighting shown by the Science baskctccrs. The result was a gradual breaking down of the opponents' defense. Science led easily itt scoring due to nothing else but their fighting spirit.
The last quarter was slower, perhaps, and the Science substitutes were used freely. But the first string men had done their work so we!! in tiring the Mayvillc guards that these subs were actually able to outplay them. The game ended with a score of 57-18, Science claiming the long end.
JAMESTOWN AT WAHPETON
Jamestown College evidently meant business when they invaded Wahpeton as a climax to their three-day trip. However, it was probably at this time of the season that our basketball aggregation was going at top speed and the result was a real battle. The Jamestown baskctccrs rather surprised our stage-struck players by their dazzling speed and genuine passing ability in the first half but the boys came back in the second half and played the Jimmies an even game. The game was featured by the attack of the Jamestown star. Robertson, and by the brilliant dribbling and shooting of Crooks, (fondly dubbed “Snake” by the students). Very good guarding was effected by both teams and both showed a good sporting temperament. The Scientists were not so disheartened over this defeat because Jamestown won the conference title and defeated the strong North Dakota “L" team mainly through the uncanny shooting of Robertson, the super player.
MOORHEAD GAME HERE
The Moorhead game was the most thrilling game played on the Science School floor this season. It was a snappy affair from start to finish. TheFIFTY-NINE
lead see-sawed back and forth all through the game. The winner could not be picked until the final whistle. The final score was 24 to 23 in the Pods’ favor. The final score docs not indicate the best team however, for. although Moorhead beat us two games by very low margins we finished higher in the conference standing than Moorhead did. Spectators remarked after that game, “the thrills I got to night will last me a life-time,' and it was a game you could not forget.
THE PARK REGION GAME AT FERGUS FALLS
As the final preparation for the big trip to Jamestown and Kllcndalc, the Science cagers journeyed to Fergus Falls to take on the Park Region Quint. Science were not overconfident of winning this game because the Park Region Quint had a strong team, holding a win over the strong St. Johns University quint of the Minnesota Conference only the week before and winning second place in National Lutheran College Championship which rates very high.
The Science Cagers were backed by a few Science rooters. The game was fast for the first few minutes but it was only a question of minutes before the Science Cagers pulled into the lead never to be headed. Every one of the Science Cagers were given plenty of chance to show their ability. 'Flic final score was 14-23 with Science on the long end. The baskets were pretty evenly distributed among the Science men.
The S. S. S. Team took a trip to Jamestown and Kllcndalc for the last two games of the season. The team left on Wednesday evening, playing at Jamestown Thursday evening, February 29 on the Jamestown College floor. The first five minutes of play the game was even. Then Robertson of Jamestown struck his stride, caging ten baskets the first half. Our team seemed to be dazzled by this scintillating work of the Jamestown star. It took just 20 minutes of play for the S. S. S. team to realize that they were just playing against a good team, not an unbeatable one.
In the second half of the game the Science team played Jamestown off their feet, but were unable to overcome the enormous lead that Jamestown had accumulated during the first half. Crooks was the star of the Science squad. Crooks caged sixteen points for his team in 20 minutes. The whole learn played a very good game. The game was a rough affair, many fouls being called on both sides, but that docs not mean that the game was not a good basketball game, because the pace set by the teams at the beginning of the game was so terrific that it was impossible to avoid fouling.
The team traveled from Jamestown to hllciulalc by bus on I'ridax morning. February 29. They rested in the aftcrncKm and left early in the evening for the gym for an early work-out.
The game began with a good brand of basketball. The S. S. S. began to find the basket early in the first half and thus gained a good lead over the normal school quint. Kvery member of the team contributed to scoring and the men also played strong defense. The second period began with an entirely different kind of basketball. Both teams began to ruff up the game and the referee could not control them. The result was fewer counters on either side and lessened the chance for a walkaway. The final whistle blew with a 20 to . 0 victory for the S. S. S. School. The game was followed by a party to which the S. S. S. team was invited.SIXTY-TWO

T the opening of the season the outlook for a successful basketball
team was not as bright as it might have been. There was only little time for practice. However, the indomitable Science spirit could not be subdued and by the latter part of December the girls were practicing two and three times a week. At the few games played during the season it could be observed that more teamwork was necessary. None of these girls had ever played together before and their greatest weakness seemed to be in passing the ball.
Although they have not been victorious in all of their meets, marked improvement from the beginning has been shown. A good team has been built from raw recruits, considering their limited time for practice. With the opening of the basketball season next year, the girls will at least have the ncuclus of a team to begin with. The only veteran of the team, Alice Rassier. will graduate this year. However, this years’ playing will mean a larger number of experienced players for next year so that Science will undoubtedly produce a speedy female aggregation to make things interesting for other girl teams.(Birls’ Ocam dit6ivi6als

7- 11I preps have just closed a successful season, winning six out of nine games. They were defeated in their opening game on Tuesday, January ( . by a score of 18 to 15 by Wall pc ton High School, due mostly to lack of practice which resulted in poor team-work. The following 'Tuesday they were again defeated by the Brcckcnridgc High School, in a close and very exciting game in which only the last minute of playing determined the winner—the score being 12-24.
January 19, the preps journeyed to Leonard where they were defeated for the third and last time by a score of 41-9.
On January 25 the Campbell High School received a severe drubbing in the hands of the Science Preps, who had at that time acquired consider-able team-work together with an accurate eye for the hoop. They scored 56 points to 13.
On February 6 the preps took Christine into camp to the tunc of 27-10.
February 3 the Wahpeton Scouts scored 25 points to the preps 46 in a fast and furious game in which considerable long shooting was resorted to by both teams.
On February 14 the Doran Independents drove down from Doran, very much determined to bring home the bacon but it again remained in the hands of the preps. The score was 27-5S. Doran was not satisfied in being defeated on February 14. so they came back on the 24 for another cleaning: this time the score being 20 to 14 in a rough and ragged game.
The final game of the season was played in the Science Gymnasium where the preps defeated the Brcckcnridge All-Stars by a score of 6 to 14.
State School of Science Gymnasium(wolf
new era of recreation for Science students was ushered in last fall V when the Science School constructed a four hole golf course. Although this was a crude affair, tlte fairways being rough and the greens not in the best of condition, nevertheless this course afforded both students and faculty some very good amusement.
During the first few weeks of school last fall the air around Science School was literally filled with golf balls and golf bugs. The entire student body took up the sport, but after a few weeks of futileswinging at that little white thing—yes it is a golf ball—gave up in despair and went back to playing marbles; they are not so hard to hit. Some of the faculty and part of the student body are still pounding the course and bragging about their low scores.
'I'he first real constructive work done on the campus this spring was fixing up the golf course, the ground was all worked down into smooth fairway, the greens were put in excellent condition and the course itself enlarged to a six hole course.
Par for the course is considered forty-eight. Most of the golfers in general make it around in about fifty, while some of the more expert players can do it in forty-nine.
'I’he f aculty is divided in opinion on the controversy of whether or not cross-word puzzles or golf constitutes the greatest assistance to the student as a vocabulary builder. There arc many arguments for both. I he crossword puzzle broadens the vocabulary in a general wav, but golf teaches the student to concentrate his How of language on one particular object.

I IK prospects for a very fast Baseball team is exceedingly bright at
this time, April IS. Coach Bute has five veterans from last year’s squad to build a team on this year. W e arc fortunate tohavc MacDougall, pitcher from last year's squad, with us again this year. As under-studies to him McKIwain and Bassett look the best.
The infield seems to be well taken care of. for we have two veterans, Bute on third base and Lilja at short. Fordycc is compelling Bute to do his best to remain a permanent fixture on the hot corner. I.ilja seems to have very little competition at the short field. McKIwain and I.euthner arc putting up a scrappy fight to see which will get first call at the Keystone position. Johnson and Williams seem to be fighting on about equal terms, for first base position. Johnson perhaps will get first call because of his slightly better batting eye. Kahl and Stone are putting up a pretty battle for the grabbing end of the Battery. Kahl having a slight advantage bc-causcof his size and good throwing arm. It seems now that there will be very few bases stolen while he is catching. McDougall will get first call on the mound because of his longer experience and heady work. McKIwain will do the tossing against all teams that fall easy prey to south paw pitching.
In the out field is the place where the hottest battles rage. Skovholt seems to have left field cinched because of experience, natural ability asfiy snatcher and accurate throwing arm. Nelson seems to be supreme in center field because of the amount of territory he is able to cover and his faultless style of backing up the infieldcr. Uightficld is the position that many of the new men arc striving to get. It seems that the man who gets this position will be the man that is the best slugger. Ncisess. Vooge. Duhn and McCarten arc all trying for this berth.
New suits have been ordered and the boys will be wearing them for the opening game April 24. Close followers of the game predict that the S. $. S. base-ball team will win most of the games on schedule that has been arranged for the 1925 Base ball team.Society
OUR social lid for 1924 was pried open with a loud crash when we congregated to frolic about at the big “mixer’’ held at the gvm on the night of Friday, the third of October. 'Hie festivities began with a most notable and popular feature, namely a 6:30 lunch. The dispensers of baked beans, sandwiches, potato salad, pickles, coffee and ice-cream cones proved to be the ultimate in service except for the one flaw that we only got 9 icecream cones apiece. Those of us who overlooked this needless frugality stayed to enjoy the following program:
Violin selections. Eva Rurnson
Vocal solos Sarah Jones
Address of Welcome Arnold Forbes
Norwegian Dialect Reading Harold Mvhra
Readings .. Helene Rurnson
Piano Solos Mrs. R. O. Harrison
The speeches were comedy skits which were unanimously proclaimed a knockout and the music was also of a pleasing nature.
After a series of daredevil races the worthy “Forbes Scrcnaders’ appeared which group of svneopators contributed much to making this occasion a gala one.
THE HALLOWE’EN DANCE
ON Monday night. November the third, the fair lads and lassies of S. S. S.
donned apparel officially known as “glad rags” and journeyed to the gym in quest of relaxation. The chief form of entertainment was dancing. Colored lights cast a soft pale radiance over the dancers and the raiment
of the feminine element was a kaleidoscope of rainbow hues. The song of the saxes and plunk of the banjoes proved irrcsistablc and soon everybody
four ghosts who grasped the unsuspecting “sheiks” one by one, vanquishing them by force if necessary. After a little dancing, conducted in ominous silence, the victims were accorded another partner selected at the discretion of the ghosts. Very nice for the ghosts, not always the most ideal arrangement for the victims.
All of which provided one wonderful night for us all.
informal dancing party was staged at the gym on Friday, Novem- her the fourteenth. Although those present did not approach the proportions of a mob and the orchestra only numbered one member, a phonograph to be exact, a pleasant time was extracted from the three hours given us “to go”. Later in the evening we journeyed to Koch's Cafe in search of nourishment, which important event marked the success of the evening. “All’s well that ends well.”
HE annual banquet of the Science gridders, an event which marks the
close of the season, was held at Burch Hall November 19, 1924. Shortly preceding the banquet John Xcllcrmoc was elected captain of the 1925 eleven to succeed Rudolph Swenson.
The banquet program was then opened by several selections from a male quartette consisting of A. N. Paulsrud, R. M. (lilies. J. P. Murray and Hugo Johnson.
Assuming the responsibility of toast master. Hugo Johnson called upon President Riley for a toast. The latter, in a short but impressive talk, praised the team highly for the success of the season. He also commented on the brand of football spirit that was shown in all of the games.
Following Mr. Riley, William Burnson. who played “drawback” on the team, was asked to tell his comprehension of football viewed from the position lie played. In a short, humorous talk Mr. Burnson pictured in words his experiences during the season.
Next to speak was coach Robertson from the local high school. His
“up and doing.” A unique feature of this event was the appearance of

speech ilea 11 with the effect that football has on the life of the players. The man-making qualities of the game were especially stressed.
I'he past and present captains were next in line. Retiring Captain Swenson, in his farewell address, thanked the players for their co-operation in making the season a success.
Coach Bute, Science mentor and concluding speaker, gave a short talk on why players should cultivate a poor losing habit.
Several more selections from the male quartette concluded the program. Ciucsts of the team besides President Riley were Coach Robertson and Cyrus Pcschcl, Wahpeton high football captain, R. M. Fallcv, W'ahpcton (I lobe, and Fredrick Jones, Richland County Farmer representatives.
The Domestic Science Classes, under the supervision of Mrs. R. M. Fa I ley, instructor, prepared and served the banquet.

WELCOME WINTER TERM STUDENTS
' 111E student cabinet was in a good humor when it planned the party of December the fifth. So were we when we joined the gay and happy throng which wended its way to the gymnasium on this night of nights to that party of parties, which fortuitous combination of circumstances boded no ill for this festive event.
Mr. McMahon and his noble cohorts—the public speaking class had charge of the program for the evening. The result of their efforts was an hour's entertainment of a singularly pleasing nature. Though we could appropriately sing a eulogy of praise to each and every participant we will content ourselves with merely listing the items for brevity’s sweet sake:
Violin Solo Welcome Address Debate on Evolution Violin Solo Vocal Solo
Talk on School Clubs Vocal Solo Science Mixed Quartette
Alice Rassier, Ed Schneider. Eva Rurnson. Hugo Johnson
Mr. Masica Harry Davis Frit . Jones. Rill Rurnson Mr. Masica 11ugo Johnson Ed Schneider Flora Tonderholm
Cyrus Kahl officiated as toast-master in his usual efficient manner.
The debaters, who rightly judged that we had imbibed sufficient knowledge for the day at the “little red School house"' gave the subject a humorous turn. Rill Rurnson masterfully demonstrated that the genus homo could not have sprung from the wily parmccium, citing statistics to prove that the last mentioned beasts arc not only rotten football players but actually arc not up on the fine points of astrology, gastronomy and hcliotologv, one wretch having only passed a 98 13-16 examination on the latter.
This seemingly conclusive evidence was hotly contested by Frederick Jones who won many converts to the cause of evolution by showing the startling resemblance of an amoeba to George Fisher, holding his position at center on the football field.
After this intellectual feast the signal to demonstrate our ability at the tcrpsichorean art was given. 'This found a ready response and along with indoor horseshoe and cards claimed all our attention until the fatal hour of twelve. Why fatal: Recause it sounded the death knell of our Welcome Part v.SBVBXTY-TIIRBB
HIKING CLUB PARTY
unique function was the lirst party of the hiking club! Tho the
V elements outside were far from springlike, a large group of our red-blooded students congregated at the dorm at the appointed hour of seven all “set” for the big adventure.
Nature had favored us with her choicest of wares, namely a full moon which shone down on us in a really bewitching manner. Add to this a world of sparkling white with the crispest and most invigorating of atmospheres. multiply by a wealth of good spirits and our party is half described.
Under these ideal circumstances began the “great trek" to the river. Having reached this destination some of our “back to nature" fiends experienced an impulse to make the remainder of the trip via ice route. This necessitated clambering down a steep bank. The word "clamber", tho small, carries a lot of significance for some landed on their car. others on their northwest eyebrow «nd one egoist claims to have actually landed on his feet, tho we must suppose that the superior weight of his feet produced this startling result.
Much to our discomfiture we demolished many and many a snowdrift before we found just the right spot for encampment. This state of bliss having been attained, our valiant youths built a roaring fire which did not come amiss.
The fleet-footed had a chance to display their skill in the engaging game of “Fox and Geese" which diversion consumed the sum total of our energy for the next hour. A wiener roast was the next feature of the entertainment. Cookies, apples, buns, wieners and coffee made up the menu and being in a magnanimous mood we strove to lighten the burden of the refreshment committee on their homeward journey. Which we did!
A pleasing amusement during the lunch hour consisted in endeavoring to push as many victims as possible over the neighboring bank. The more snow that one succeeded in coaxing down his or her neck, the higher one scored.
As the ' .cphvrs were becoming a trifle boisterous we decided that the proper time had come to journey back to civilization so we again undertook the long and perilous expedition. We didn't meet very many bears and onlv a few tigers so we pronounced the hike highly successful. May we have many more like it!SCIENCK CLUB PARTIES
T IHl'RSDAV evening. December the fourth, the members of the Science Club assembled for their first meeting' The Club business was discussed first. It was decided that the hand-ball room in the Gym could and should be the future meeting place. The question of voting in new members was to be decided at the next meeting.
The program following was short, but interesting. Frederick Jones spoke on the subject of what Science has done most for humanity.
Don Larin discussed artificial pain making. 'Flic only thing lacking was an actual demonstration of the process. John Lcuthner and Cyrus Kahl gave a few remarks concerning the success of the club.
A lunch was served after the program by the entertainment committee.
The second meeting was held at the hand-ball rooms on Thursday, January the 14. After a short business meeting presided over by president Frederick Jones the program committee took charge. Short talks on Scientific subjects were given by Doris Burnson and Mr. Tarnev.
Flic trio sang two numbers, Frederick Jones again rising to the occasion with his banjo.
'Flic trio labored thruout a long evening with their bayous and banjo while the rest of us either congregated around the orchestra and sang or tripped the light fantastic—as the spirit moved us.
Now it was the turn of the refreshment committee to function and we partook of a lunch of sandwiches, coffee, cake and cskimo pies. That’s all.
THE CHRISTMAS PARTY
NiVlK had a Christmas tree and exchanged presents and everything at ▼▼ our Christmas party. Besides all that, we went to the movies together and saw Betty Compson. Some of our aspiring Carusos lent volume to the orchestra and also displayed their dramatic ability bv their vibrant and touching sobs during the sad spots in the picture. Anyway, everybody knew we were there!
“If you want to find out how big the gvm is just try decorating it” is the consensus of opinion of the decorating committee. It takes hours to make any impression on it at all. 'Flic results of their efforts were very artistic, however.
As is our usual custom a great share of the evening was spent in dancing. Thus were the hours whiled away till the twelve o’clock gong.CIA'BS SPONSOR PARTY
FTKR being separated for the cruel space of two weeks (Christmas
V V acation) we were all ready to congregate for a jubilee on the night of Friday, January the sixteenth.
The numerous and hard-working clubs of the school valiantly agreed to take upon themselves the arduous task of providing the entertainment. That their efforts resulted in undiluted success was testified by the enthusiastic way in which the program was received. And why shouldn’t it be: Who other should make their appearance than the Norwegian trio composed of Axel I.ilja. Nina Anderson, and Ld Schneider.
These warblers made a dccidcly good impression. Ed was completely overcome with emotion during the rendition of the touching ballad “Lude-tisk, Ludefisk, va, va, va.” which no doubt carried him away to scenes of his childhood in good old Norway.
Let us sing loud and lustlv the praises of the Hawaiian Follies so ably directed by Don Larin. From the opening kick to the final hysteria, the girls watched in breathless interest and glee. Everything was complete to the last spit curl on the last cheek of the last foolic.
Mr. Masica’s violin solo was greatly enjoyed, as were the selections by the orchestra. Mrs. Lounsburv kindly consented to give us a reading, which made up the next number.
Mr. McMahon closed the program with a welcome speech to the new students. Ilis well-known Irish sense of humor sparkled and scintillated as usual and his sincere words of greeting to the winter term students made them feel truly at home.
At this juncture the “Brcck Scrcnadcrs” appeared and of course we couldn’t make our feet behave. Dancing and cards now became the order of the evening and reigned supreme till the last sweet strains of “Home. Sweet Home” fell upon our reluctant ears.
ON January 27. all the male members of the student body and faculty assembled in the gymnasium to spend an evening of innocent frolic. '| his was the time when great dissension between the various trades had acquired the status of a feudal warfare. There was blood in every man’s eye when the debaters met on the arena to exterminate, if possible, the opposing trades. The bricklayer dug deep into the plumber's heart but in doing s lost his footing and was nearly overthrown. The printer carried himself with proud punctilio throughout the whole encounter but was squelched when the ever domineering electrician produced for the printer’s
—euse. a paper stretcher that would really stretch paper. A new brick made of wood soaked in asbestos oil was one of the effective weapons used against the bricklayer. The auto mechanic took fiendish delight in torturing his adversaries with jibes.
Not satisfied with the outcome of the debate, there ensued wrestling matches, boxing, and tugs-of-war. Each faction claimed victories of the numerous collisions but it wasn't until a keg of cider made its appearance that real turmoil broke loose. All party views were forgotten and it was every man for himself in the rush which lasted until the keg was dry and the cats devoured. So ended one of the biggest celebrations of the year.
GIRL’S STAG PARTY
OUR brothers and fathers all went to bed early on January 50, 1925, and thereby hangs a tale. You see. the S. S. S. girls had a stag party on that night which necessitated the fleecing of the aforesaid male relatives of what they usually carried around on their backs. The general conscnus of opinion was that the girls “out-Caesared Caesar.” Anyway, several of them acquired the fanciest of mustaches overnight and it must be admitted that some of our fairest youths have consumed months in doing this very thing.
By 8:50 the angry mob had assembled and thcnce-forth proceeded to enjoy itself with much gusto. The first feature of the entertainment was a short program packed with thrills. The I). M. C. orchestra gave a pleasing overture. “Dishpania” by Choping, with Nina Anderson taking the solo parts and Lenorc Larin "at the helm”. After a thunderous round of applause they graciously responded to an encore in the form of a tone poem. “The Louse and the Idea” by L". Sapp.
The program proceeded with numbers equally entertaining. At its termination, a series of Athletic stunts were indulged in, excitement reaching its peak when Miss Clark downed Sabina, the former champion in the art of Indian Wrestling. Mrs. McClintock met her “Waterloo” in the person of the redoubtable Miss Walton whom she encountered in a sensational wrestling match.
Soon the irresistable strains of "Sally” were floating upon the air and the “stags” knew how to put the music to good use. Even though our borrowed finery was a bit misfit we managed to do full justice to the light fantastic, which pastime engaged our attention for the rest of the evening. However, we must not make the grave error of neglecting to mention the huge quantities of peanuts, apple turnovers and ice-cream cones which were so generously supplied us.SEVENTY-SEVEN
ARTS CLUJ PARTIES
%. the evening of Wednesday, February the fourth, the Arts Club held forth in the hand-ball court following a short business meeting during which ten applicants were voted in as members, the program committee took charge of developments.
Miss Clark, Mr. McMahon and F.d Schneider were the chief speakers of the evening. Their discourses were of an extremely entertaining nature. The Science Trio gallantly rose to the occasion as usual and furnished the next number, which was immediately followed by a Solo Dance given by Helene IJurnson. Cv Kahl and Karl Robinson gave a modern rendition of Romeo and Juliet. Cv acted the blushing maiden and “Peewee” the pursuing swain.
'The remainder of the evening was spent in playing cards and dancing. 'The refreshments consisted of apple pie a la mode and coffee.
'The second meeting was in the form of a progressive whist party. This took placcon April Fool's day and several novelties of the day were introduced.
Mabel Gran and Axel Lilja by dint of much perseverance worked their way to the head table. However, at this juncture Bill IJurnson and Lawrence Ulsakcr appeared and vanquished them in an exciting set. Ice cream and cookies constituted the refreshments.
Additional parties of this nature arc planned for a future date.
ON Friday, the 20th of February, our last Pre-I.enten dance was held.
'The gym was tilled with a gay and happy throng bent on having a good time and succeeding remarkably. The “IJrcck Serenades” were pouring the most inspiring of music into our ears and we didn’t waste any of it. “I p and Doing” was our motto. The whole party in a nutshell is as follows: We danced and danced and then danced some more. It doesn’t sound very imposing but wo all voted the evening’s entertainment a knockout.• Ihe Biff Blue Diamond'

"T - IIK old Friday-thc-13th-supcrstition was left threadbare and tottering w? after our big 1925 Carnival! A record crowd and a record proceed was the kind of bad luck we had.
March was in the act of coming in like a lion when the parade took place but the valiant supporters of S. S. S. sallied forth to contend with the elements. The costumes were startling and effective, tho the folly girls decided not to don their outfits for the occassion as the sleeves were not quite long enough to withstand the wintry blasts.
'Kite angry mob stormed the gym at 7:30 and we decided to let them in. A long, long list of attractions kept each and every one bubbling over with joy for the rest of the evening.
First there was the big melodrama. “The Big Blue Diamond” written and produced by our dramatic wizards. Masica and McMahon. Some of our most pcacablc and lawabiding students were suddenly transformed into characters no one would enjoy meeting in the dark. Knives, guns and evards were juggled around in a dizzy manner but the noble hero conquered the villains, saved the blue diamond and won the girl. What could be sweeter?

The “Follies” were a sensation from start to finish. Pretty girls and handsome youths regaled us with their aptitude in the terpsichorean art. The choruses had all the vitality in the world which is a whole lot of vitality. The boys gave a take-off on the “Opening of the Rose”—namely the “Opening of the Onion”—and we admit they took off plenty. However, it was a great deal more popular than most "openings of the onion" tho it failed to move us to tears as the name might suggest.

FAREWELL WINTER TERM STUDENTS
HE sad truth must be told! Our newly-made friends of the wintet
term were really to depart. However there was one crumb of comfort. 'Pile student cabinet had waxed generous and planned the very best sort of a farewell party.
'Phis event opened with a 6:30 banquet. When the last Eskimo pic had disappeared from view the gallant and long-suffering trio hove into sight and sang a number which evoked the usual deluge of applause. .Mr. Masica acted as toast-master for the program which followed. That versatile gentleman showed us that he is as efficient in the “toast-masting" field as in all the other activities that he had undertaken, which is really a very weighty compliment.
Arnold Sansburn, spokesman for the group which was leaving, stated that the period spent at Science had been highly profitable and entertaining for everyone. Axel Eilja. in reply to this, expressed our collective regret in seeing the winter term students leave. Although this sentiment would hardly seem mirth provoking the indomitable Axel managed to get in his full quota of wise cracks.
Mr. Bernard spoke wisely and well on the subject of trades, which speech was followed by another equally excellent by Don Larin. President Riley concluded the program with a discussion of plans for next year's trades course.
The next item on the bill of fare was a journey to the gym where we were entranced by the melodious offering of the oriental orchestra. In a few moments the big dance was in full swing and thus did the entertainment of the evening come to a climax.
These answers to exam questions were turned in by Miss Clark. (She will divulge no names—God help us.)

A few excerpts from letters from two of the schools alumnae, who have not forgotten their Alma mater.
February 18. 1925
To The Alumni Editor.
o o o o o o Norway’s political detachment and disinterestedness docs much, in my opinion, to make her preeminently enjoyable to visitors from every land. Because her people have not the current national hatreds, they arc the more truly international and responsive. In fact, the Norwegian people arc so keen on things foreign that I once had a flashy desire—aided by numerous Lux advertisements—to write a tiling entitled "The Americanization f Norway,” not being aware at the time that one could with equal propriety write of her "(Jermanization" or "Englandization.” o o o o o o 'I'hc city, Edinburgh, suggests Scottish history and song at almost every step. On my daily walk to the University, for instance. I pass the birthplace of Stevenson and his home in Invcrlcith Row. past which Eve Simpson used to take her dogs for a morning walk. I cross the W ater of Leith which comes down from the Pcntland Hills with their many stories of battle and romance. I have a good view of the Scott Monument (really worth a "view”) in the heart of the city, and look down Princes Street past the site of the Ambrose hotel where Christopher North and his friends mixed toddy and passed merciless criticisms on Scott and the Lake poets. A member of the preparatorv class of 1918,
Editor. Alumni Dept.,
The Small Pica:
o o o o o o I entered Science in the fall of 1905. Prior to that time, the school had occupied quarters in what is now your main or administration building, leased from the Red River alley University which owned the building. In 1905 the R. R. V. U. withdrew from Wahpeton, amid more or less local excitement, and the state purchased the building for the present institution. The school year of 1905-6, therefore, was the first year that Science operated “on its own”, with its own faculty in its own building.
I say “building" advisedly, for there was but the one. That fall, theKKJHTV-FOL'k --------------
lirst see lion of what is now the mechanical department was built. C. I). Clipfcll was head of the mechanical department -and he was also the only instructor. When the building was completed, we students worked under his direction, installing the machinery and equipment, digging the hole for the concrete foundation upon which the stationary steam engine was placed, stringing the line shaft and counter shafts for the various machines; and when the machines were in running order, making parts for their aid for reconstructing several used or dilapidated machines which were included in the equipment bought for the shop.
” atlrs Business College" occupied quarters on the second floor by virtue of a lease. This was the forerunner of the present Science commercial department.

HI'- Klcctrical Department of the State School of Science was in the year 1924-25. one of the largest in the school. Sixty seven students received instruction in the various electrical trades. The Klcctrical Department gives promise of becoming a great and very important part of our school.
We were very fortunate tins year in having the services of Mr. B. II. Barnard and Mr. Karl I .arson as instructors. Both of these men arc highly rated as electrical engineers and were well qualified to instruct the electrical classes. Mr. Kd Karst was engaged to act as assistant instructor during the winter term. Mr. Karst is a practical electrical tradesman and boasts a long and well-rounded career in the electrical industry. That he was very popular with the “boys” was unquestioned.
Instruction in electrical trades was given in six branches during the past year. These were: I- Meter Testing and Repair. 2. Central Plant Operation. 5. Motor Operation and Repair. 4. Inside Wiring. 5. Signal Kquipment. 6. Armature winding.
The major part of the electrical students took either high school or collegiate work in conjunction with their electrical training. Students who graduate from the two-year college course and proceed with their electrical work will eventually become electrical engineers. Those who complete the trades courses without further academic training become electrical tradesmen.
Klcctricity. being a live and interesting subject, naturally attracts a class of students who were vitally interested in getting a through knowledge of it. Students came from all parts of North Dakota and the course proved interesting enough to attract students from other states. I he Klcctrical Trades Department was located in the Trades Building. The students had ample equipment to work with and the instructors saw to it dial every student was at all times occupied. This Department maintains an armature-winding service. Armatures needing to be rewound are received in this department and students who are qualified to do the work receive liberal pay for their services.
The year 1924-25 was featured by two inspection trips that students of the electrical department look. The first trip, taken by first year students, brought them to the Otter Tail Power Company's power units at Fergus Falls. Minnesota. On this trip the students were also given an opportunity to inspect the Hoot Lake Power Project which is one of the foremost ofits kind in this section of the country. Late in March the second-year electrical students motored to the twin cities for a weeks stay under a distinctly electrical influence. Places of interest the students visited were: Northern States Power Co.'s Meter Dept.. Riverside Power Station. Street car Railway Station, Baustead Electric Co. (Armature W inding Dept, and Machine Shop). F.lectric Machine Shop. St. Paul; Iron Works Foundry, Minnesota L" (Electrical Engineering Bldg.), Ford Motor Company and the High Bridge Station. The last named unit is the result of one of the greatest engineering feats ever attempted in America. The sccond-vcar students who went on this trip asserted that it was well worth while.
An important thing in the Electrical Department this year was the Electrical Club. This club functioned during the Winter Term and was the largest and probably the most active club in the entire school. Meetings were held twice monthly and interesting electrical problems were discussed by the students and instructors.IJIC.IITY.KIGIIT
PRINTING trades at the State School of Science occupied an important position during the year 1924-25. With the exception of the Agawasie, all the printing of the school was done in the school shop. Some of the many jobs printed were: the school catalog, containing complete
descriptions and data of the entire curriculum, posters advertising athletic events, programs for assemblies, tickets, etc.; and this department handled the work of publishing the Small Pica every week.
This department was originated in 1923 as a means of furnishing skilled labor to the printers of North Dakota. Students enrolling in this depart mem are expected to complete a two-year course but many find employment at the end of the first year and complete, after a fashion, the learning of their trade while employed. This course was endorsed by the North Dakota Press Association and other state organizations.
Courses taught in this department may be included under the following heads: 1. Hand Composition. 2. Stone work. 3. Lockup. 4-
Linotype operation and mechanism. 5. Presswork. 6. Composition.
Students entering this department were first put to “learning the case" and were later introduced to the profession which they were to follow.
One of the most valuable factors which assists a printing student is that of actual practice. The apprentices in this department were fortunate in always having actual work to do. 'Thus they took more interest in the work and naturally made more progress in what they were doing. Some very good work was turned out toward the close of the year and the students had a right to be proud of what they had accomplished.
The print-shop is located in the basement of the Main Building. It is probably the best equipped shop for teaching printing west of the twin cities. The main items of machinery consists of two linotypes, a paper cutter, punching and stitching machines, a new Michlc press, installed in April, 1925. two job presses, a proof press, and various other necessities.
A very full line of type eases arc included and this is one reason for the excellent appearing work turned out by experienced students here.
The total enrollment during the W inter Term was sixteen students.
A schedule was made out whereby each student received at least one, and sometimes two, periods of linotype practice a day. One student acted as machinist while two students worked as operators on the two machines.
This was an ideal situation and the students were quick to acquire the
principle mechanics of the machine and later picked up many of the minor details which often cause trouble.
The instruction in this department was in charge of Mr. I I. IJ. Sattcrlcc. Mr. Sattcrlcc has a record of thirty years of successful printing experience and there is no doubt that he gave the benefit of this experience to his students. Me has been employed on a good many newspapers and periodicals throughout the northwest and was in charge of the Minneapolis Drug Company’s printing department, rhe University of Minnesota's printing department and was for some time an instructor at Dunwoody Industrial Institute. Minneapolis.
The printing department is one of the important ones of the school and to many, the favorite one. Nearly everything depends to some extent on printing and printing students come to feel this responsibility when working under the influence of the State School of Science.-Auto )2toct)anic$
ONK of ilie most popular of trades courses for the past year proved to be Auto Mechanics. Authorities on the subject assert that there arc more opportunities for skilled men in auto and tractor repair work than in any other phase of trade work. 'Phis year’s course attracted widespread attention and ten students received instruction under John M. Ness, one of the northwest’s foremost mechanics.
Instruction in Auto Mechanics covers a very broad field containing many phases of work. Many students arc actually engaged in their trades and come in for special instruction along certain lines. The mechanical department has functioned at the school for many years and boasts of a good amount of equipment for the students use. This trade is located in the Trades Building and uses three large rooms in its scope of instruction: the mechanical room, the machine shop, and the forge shop. The machine shop is one of the best equipped in this section of the country and contains all the general machinery used in auto repairing.
'1’hc students spent most of their time under actual job conditions but they took an hour of practical trade mathematics every morning. Ior those who had had no particular mechanical training before beginning this course, a short course was given in the use of tools. Later they started such occupations as resetting and grinding engine valves, making gaskets, connecting rod work and numerous other tasks to get an insight into general automobile repairing. Instruction in the electricity of automobiles was highly stressed because electricity is more and more coming to be connected with automobiles. Particular instruction was also given regarding crankshafts. The Auto Mechanics department completely dissembled and assembled several automobiles to give the students the actual practice in doing so. A special feature of the instruction was the battery training, in which many students received instruction in the local garages.
Students in the auto mechanics division were perhaps the most satisfied students of the school when their term closed the latter part of March.
We know that they went away knowing that their time had been well spent at the State School of Science.Ot)t business School
I II business School of the State School of Science is the development of years of experience. Commerce was the major trade course at Science when the school was first opened, and while it is not generally considered a trade now. it is. nevertheless, still the largest department in the school. Today it is among the most modern in the state, is very well equipped with the latest office appliances, and uses methods of short time, intensive instruction which prepares the student for office positions in the minimum time.
The work is separated into two divisions—the preliminary and advanced courses. The preliminary period lasts for approximately six months, and the advanced period for a term of three months. The work may also be extended into a two years junior college commerce course.
While the course is very thorough and leaves but little time for pleasure during the school term, there arc many humorous incidents that come up during the course that serve to relieve the monotony and to make the memories of the business school everlasting in the student’s mind.
The cycle of the stages of a student’s education is really very interesting. The student who is entering school is very optimistic, lie has vague dreams of typing at a hundred words or more a minute, and has no trouble at all in writing shorthand as fast as a person can talk, lie is fairly overflowing with exuberant joy—when lie registers. But in a week's time there is a dramatic change. Gone are the dreams of glory. There remains only an overpowering dread of the Gregg system and of a typewriter. But as the months pass, there is a gradual recuperation, until the time when the certificate of graduation is received, and then there remains nothing but joy in the memories of the school.
Now when the school year is over and commerce training troubles are a thing of the past, we can smile as we think of the serious light in which we considered them. And we find a real pleasure in reviewing the brighter incidents which have remained in our memories. W ho will ever forget Mr. Masica, the violinist who could play as well with his eyes closed as with them open; or the other two faculty members. Miss Walton and Miss Madden, who were always telling you that you would never become a stenographer, but they didn’t mean it you never became acquainted with them until you met them out of school.
And now we turn to our fellow students, and we never think of them without feeling a regret at having to cut short the acquaintance. And as we think of those old friends that we had. and the many pleasures that resulted from your acquaintance, we will forget not that they were intimately related with our business education.
“ 1 HI'- Home F.conomics Department is one of the older departments °f the school. Also, it is one of the largest. Although it functions mainly during the inter Term, some of the classes are continued throughout the entire year. This year the work was carried on under the supervision of two very efficient instructors. 'They were Miss Fork tier and Mrs. Falley. Both of these teachers have had long and varied experience in the teaching of the domestic sciences and they were both exceptionally well qualified to take charge of the position t which they were elected. The courses of instruction given may be classified under the following main heads:
1. Plain Sewing.
I his course included the making of simple garments such as aprons, cotton and linen blouses and dresses, nightgowns, etc. Topics allied to the construction of these articles were discussed and the use of commercial patterns and their alteration was covered by lectures. One important thing discussed was appropriation of different styles to different types of women.
There arc a great many difficult problems relative to garment making and they were worked out in this course. The students were given the opportunity to use both silk and woolen materials and coats and suits were made as well as dresses. The sewing rooms were open six hours each day and the girls were allowed to work any or all of these hours. Individual work was done by each student and it was found that in this way better progress was made. Beginners in this course usually furnished their own material but advanced students were allowed to do trade work and are well paid for this work.
This course included every phase of food preparation, from buying to serving. I’ach girl was given ample opportunity to act as cook, waitress, hostess, purchaser and housekeeper. This course operated very efficiently in 1924-1925. and the girls had a practical knowledge on completing the course. Ten hours of instruction per week was given.
4. Advanced Cooking.
To meet the requirements of those wanting to take advanced work in cooking this course was offered during the past year. Instruction was given in the different methods of canning and preserving and in preparing fancy pastries. It dealt with the many new and novel ways of preparing the more difficult dishes. The pupils were introduced to the best and most modern ways of serving luncheons and banquets, in both of these cooking courses trips were taken to visit flour mills, bakeries and candy kitchens.
These courses were offered for two basic reasons, hirst for those who wished to take up dressmaking as a trade, and second for those interested in home-making. Although the increasing popularity of ready made clothing cannot be denied, every community still demands its dressmaker.iPlumbing Ora6
AR-SPLl'l TING noises! A bain! A tluui! A resounding; vvliack!
A disgusted exclamation is heard and we entered the Plumbing Department. This branch of the trades department was located in the Trades Building and is now one of the important departments of the school. Plumbing is one of the newer trades that is rapidly coining to the front as one needing special training. A good plumber rcllects good health in the community in which he works, because plumbing deals primarily with water supply and sewage disposal.
The plumbing course was established at the request of the contractors of the northwest. These contractors were anxious that more men be trained so that they could secure enough competent workmen to continue building in this district. In this course the students devoted two hours each day to practical mathematics and plan reading and estimating and live and one half hours to actual plumbing practice.
The school was fortunate this year in securing the services of Mr. A. W. Hoppcrt, of the Wahpeton Plumbing and Heating Co., as the instructor in this department. Mr. Hoppcrt is a practical plumbing tradesman and his long experience along this line makes him well qualified to hold the position he has.
'I‘hc shop where the work is carried on is very well equipped with all modern and necessary plumbing tools and fixtures. The students receive practical instruction along the lines of fixture installation, joint wiping, line tapping, and the numerous other phases of the plumbing industry. The students erected several complete bathrooms in which they practiced the installation of fixtures in a speedy and practical manner.
'Hie course was olTcred for four months during the winter. However, the largest enrollment was from January I to March 31 during which time fourteen students received instruction.
A very admirable thing about the plumbing trade and also the bricklaying and auto mechanics trades is that they arc taught here during the “slack season." That is, when the devotees of the trade can best give their time and attention to schooling along a particular line. Another thing, our State Legislature has recently decreed that from now on all courses in trade instruction that are under state supervision shall be given at the State School of Science. This tends, naturally, to centrali .e all trades and make for bigger and better trade courses at this school. ricklaviug Or ade.

_ 11te Bricklaying Trade in 1924-25 proved a most extraordinary success.
There is no doubt that bricklaying is one of the best paying trades in the country at the present time. Men who become proficient in it arc offered an exceptional wage earning opportunity. There is a great necessity for bricklayers in this state and many contractors are anxious to secure well trained men for the building trades. The bricklaying trade at this school was indorsed by the State Builders and Traders texchangc.
The course was under the direction of Mr. N. P. Simonson. He had charge of the class last year also and his efficiency cannot be too highly praised. The students spent two hours each day in mechanical drawing and plan reading and five and one half hours in laying bricks under actual job conditions. The course was conducted in a large, cement-floored room in the Trades Building, teach day the students laid out a foundation and the work of building a wall or other structure was started. The students were given practical instruction on the various kinds of walls and lectures were given relating to their relative strength under different conditions. The students constructed many chimneys, arches and fire-places. 'I he accompanying photographs give only a faint impression of the number and beauty of these constructions.
teach Saturday morning a speed test was held to determine the progress the students were making. Guerdon Duncan of Grand Forks, North Dakota, and Hugo Troska of Strandquist, Minnesota were winners in the tests. They attained a speed of 152 and 152 bricks an hour respectively on a four inch face wall.
Thirteen students were enrolled in the bricklaying department in 1924-25 and all were members of the Trades Club. One especial honor was conceded to this department in 1925: Hugo Troska copped the pri' .c for winning the pic-eating contest at the Stag Party which was held the evening of January 27. However, it was rumored that Hugo got outside of about as much plate as he did pie.
Somehow, a current opinion existed that the bricklayers were really enjoying themselves and were getting a great deal of good from the time and energy they were spending on the course. 'Flic boys were cheerily at work every morning and night found them proud of what they accomplished. Some exceptionally good work was done on chimneys, arches and fireplaces and it was really too bad that most of these had to be torn down and made into something new. From a student’s standpoint, the 1924-25 bricklaying course was most successful.NIX TV-.NINE

A WESTKRN STORY
“Ha!” cried Black Duke Gallagher, as lie twirled the ends of his coal-black moustache. “Ha!” he cried again and a sinister light shone from his sloe-black eyes as he viewed the fair form of Daisy Wild who was picking her way daintily across the muddy streets of Bloody Gulch. In a moment Black Duke was at her side smiling and glowing and devouring the fragile beauty of the fair Daisy. Raising his hat with a flourish, the black Duke bowed again and quoth:
“Fair dame. I would that I might lift your dainty feet from the mud and deposit your beautiful carcass wherever be your heart's desire."
“Ah! sir." sighed the maid, “I am a poor orphan, all alone in the cold and cruel and wicked world. I am overwhelmed by your kindness and if you will take me to the Red Nose saloon, SO I can bin a bottle of gin for my cruel step-father, the Lord will reward you."
I lore the demure Daisy cast her eyes on the ground and she stood there as pathetic a beauty as ever requested the aid of mortal being. The Black Duke struck an attitude, his left hand on his pistol and his right hand over his heart.
“Fair lady.” quoth he. “your wish is granted." and in a moment Black Duke seated the girl on his black cayuse and sprang up behind her. They set ofT at a gallop, passed the post-ofticc. past the meatmarket and past twenty-seven saloons.
Then Daisy Wild suddenly screamed and struggled to free herself, from the grasp of Black Duke. “Oh!” she moaned. “Ha!” cried Black Duke.
lust at that moment, handsome, silent McXuttc-Dcwc emerged from the Green Kve saloon. He heard the maid's piteous scream. Quoth Mc-Xutte-Dewe. “I fear there is dirty work at the crossroads,” and speaking these prophetical words, for twas afterwards said that it was the longest speech MeXutt-Dewe had made in seven years, the gallant MeXutt retired to the bar in the saloon and after consuming a gallon of gin. suddenly came to a decision and springing on his horse, set oil in hot pursuit.
Over the mountains fled Black Duke and after him followed MeXutte-
Dewc. Out in the desert rode Black Duke and hot on the trail followed silent McNutte-Dcwc. Finally Black Duke's horse stumbled in a badger hole and broke his leg. Black Duke pulled out his six-gun and shot his faithful equine companion. Kntrenching himself behind the dead horse, Black Duke got his guns in readiness and prepared to fight to a bitter end.
MeNutt-Dewe rode into sight. “Villian.” cried McNutte-Dcwc, “Unhand that girl!” “Curses.” cried Black Duke and began to shoot. McNuttc-Dcwe calmly drew his pistols and after six days’ battle the skillful marksmanship of MeNutte-Dewe laid the villain low with thirty-nine bullet wounds in his breast.
The Fair Daisy fell into MeXutt-Dewe’s arms. “Be mine." said McNutt-Dewc. "I will" said Daisy and they lived happily ever after.
