TRiuer Iff alls .State SchoolFOREWORD
IT has been the purpose of the Staff of 1918 to make this Meletean a patriotic number. We believe it would be unpardonable, when so much need exists in the world, to make the volume an expensive one. The reduction of the price nothwithstanding the great increase in the cost of labor and material has been no small task; but it has been accomplished, and we believe the results not only merit but will receive your approval.
We have tried to present the life of our School in a way to please you. If through the shortness of our wit we do violence to memories that time will make sacred, we humbly ask your indulgence. We have written nothing in malice; and as love has been ever in our hearts, may your charity shield us in our inlirmest joke as readily as it may share in our joy over the fame to be won by our heroes on the fields of Fair France.
We wish to thank all who have aided so generously in the making of the Meletean of 1918.
THE STAFF.■O the boys who have so willingly gone forth to fight for the cause of humanity, to die if need be that human liberty, gained at such awful cost in the long centuries of upward striving, shall still be kept as a precious heritage — to these we dedicate this volume.

IN all humility we recognize how meager is the contribution any one school can make to the vast armies that fight in the cause of human freedom; but our hearts glow with honest pride when we remember that such contributions combined with others make possible our Country’s glorious might. We rejoice that our Class has been able to furnish more than a score of stalwart men, who in placing their names on the muster rolls are graduated into the ranks of the saviors of civilization. It is their lot to merit the plaudits of all future generations. Their lofty patriotism inspires us to serve unselfishly, though in humbler ranks; and, inspired by their devotion, we greet you all as fellow soldiers in our common cause.

Page SevenWe Are Torch Bearers
WE realize as never before the responsibility resting upon us. Our vision has been cleared and our duty made plain by the glorious example of our hundred brave men who have gone out to engage in the world’s greatest struggle for human freedom.
We are torch bearers! Ours is the duty and privilege to carry the pure light of patriotism out to the thousands of American children, many of them in the darkness of ignorance and prejudice.
It is the duty of this school to kindle these beacons; this transcends all other duties. Let no one offer himself as a torch bearer whose beacon is clouded by doubtful sentiments, but only those who will so carry the light that it will shed the pure and sacred radiance of patriotism.

Page NineO fair expanse of wood and wold.
Of crazing herds and well-tilled fields.
What peace of heart, what wealth of gold Thy harvest to the reaper yields!
Within the crystal depths I see The trout like golden arrows shine,
And in my fancy suddenly I feel the tugging of the line.
Page TenThe rustic bridge that spans the flood,
Deep in the shadows of the
Where lovers come in pensive mood
And pause and wander on again
The stairway up the rocky side, Where these same lovers pause to view The lakelet’s shimmering surface wide,
Or gaze into the heaven’s blue.
Page ElevenFrom far meadows pied with shadows Where the willows nod,
Glide forever, gentle river,
’Neath the smile of God.—Goble.
Fair mossy slopes and cold, gray stones.
And bluffs whose feet the river laves ’While chanting music, whose low tones Are echoed by the lichcned eaves. —Goble.

The end of another succeselul school year is at hand and although the Junior Class this year has not been is great in number as preceding Junior Classes have been, yet we feel, that in “Quality’’ we are not lacking.
This Class has entered into all activities of the school. Among these activities, perhaps the foremost in the thoughts of nearly all the students, is athletics. Our boys have made a good allowing along this line. When we stop to think that the Normal basket ball team consisted of four Junior players, we realize that these boys have brought honor to the class in the way of athletics.
Our class spirit has been shown in many ways, this year. One way in which we proved our loyalty was by giving some of our boys to the service of Uncle Sam. The Junior girls have also been faithful in doing Bed Cross work.
When we reassemble next September, we will strive to broaden our education so that when we receive our coveted diploma we can feel that our reward for patient and successful work during our Normal days has been given to us.

Page Sixty-fourPage Sixty-fiveThe School can take honest pride in the work done in tlic past year by the Y. W. C. A., % C. A., Y. M. C. A.
'I’lie work for which these organizations was originally instituted was to further the social and religious life of the students. This is a work well worth doing, and its accomplishment always brings gratification. These bodies have, since the beginning of their work here, always rendered notable service. This year, however, gave opportunity for service more truly humanitarian and wider in its scope. This was the aid rendered in behalf of the men called to the colors.
Our forces joined heartily in the great drive for funds to help in the cantonments in the homeland and abroad, and for the relief of unfortunates in the prison camps. The amount collected was over fifteen hundred dollars, and these organizations stand ready for their full share in meeting auv subsequent needs.

The Y. VV. C. A. is a band of Christian girls who endeavor to strengthen our Normal by keeping womanhood sincere and loyal. The first active service is to welcome strangers and promote a homelike spirit among the students. The three religious societies joined in giving a reception of welcome the first week of school.
The result of the Membership Campaign strengthened our number and the Initiation Service that followed was so impressive that it will be a sacred remembrance to those who witnessed it. Several afternoon teas and parties have added to the social life of tiie school. The Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. have joined in Sunday Vesper Services for the various holiday occasions. During an assembly period the Y. W. C. A. was given an opportunity to impart some of its spirit. Our weekly service is Thursday evening and is extended to all interested in the work.
I ach year our society is represented at the Y. W. C. A. conference held at Lake Geneva. Last summer Ruth Johnson and Laura Anderson were our representatives. We intend to send girls this summer and hope to gain thereby fresh enthusiasm for the Association.
The Y. W. C. A. owes its present welfare to the encouragement offered by noble friends, and we wish to contribute our gratitude to faculty members and townspeople, who willingly rendered service.
.Another gift for which the girls arc thankful is the attractively decorated society room, where our meetings arc held.

The N. ('. A holds it prominent position in the school., and its work this year is most gratifying. The meetings, held even- Thursday, are very interesting. This is due mostly to the efforts of our faculty advisor, Professor Prucha, and the assisting officers.
During the year we were favored with lectures by Fathers Brennan and Cunningham which could not but help to raise the standard of the society and lend new enthusiasm to its members.
Although the society is mainly to uphold the spiritual side of the student’s life, the social features are not forgotten, and many entertainments were given for the members.
The true spirit of patriotism was shown by the X. C. A. members when they contributed to the K. of C. fund. Each member gave generously in order that chapels might be erected and amusements afforded the boys in the cantonments at home and across the water.
Let us hope that the good work which has characterized the X. C. A. in the past may continue and that years to come may show it a progressive society.

Y«yne Benedict, who was elected president of the Y. M. C. A, a year ago, was called to serve for his country, and Andrew Johnston has very efficiently filled his place. Charles‘Hines, who was president last year, is also in the army.
Although our attendance has been rather small, those who have taken an active part in our meetings have benefited much by them. Our Vesper Services have been a success also.
Messrs. Bird, Preston, Spencer and Grimm have spoken to us ns well as several faculty members. These talks were much appreciated.
In a social way we held our Annual Stag Party. The trial between Mr. Prueha and the villinns, who attempted to deprive him of his winter’s wood was very interesting. We also enjoyed a hearty repast of bean soup, following the occasion. On to Geneva!

Taking: all tilings into consideration, we had a very successful football season. The season started with a rush. Kau Claire High School was defeated by a good score, and Car Id on, Minnesota champions, were held to a single touchdown. The rest of the games were won decidedly. Stevens Point was tucked away as usual, which gave us the Northern championship again. We were defeated for the State championship by a very good team, a team that no one should be ashamed to lose
to. With some very good material left for next year and a good coaching staff, we should even fare better.

Page Eighty-twoRiver Falls Wins Northern Championship
River Falls Defeats Stevens Point 7 to 3 in Sensational Game Fessenbecker Scores Winning Touchdown
This game will long be remembered as being one of the hardest battles ever won by a Itivcr Falls team. Odds were on the Falls before the game, as shortly before, Stevens Point was Iteld to a 7 to 7 tie by Superior, a team which ltiver Falls had no trouble in beating by a large score. Although the local team did not .expect “easy picking,” they did look for a game with things more or leas their own way.
In spite of their poor showing against some of the weaker teams in the conference, the “Point” had something stored up for River Falls. Coach Catlin of Lawrence University had been summoned and he had been putting their team through a strenuous two weeks of secret practice and the result was a finished eleven that gave Rirer Falls the greatest scare in many seasons.
The “Point” started out like a house afire, successfully spilling the River Falls shift plays and giving the red-j’erseyed players all they could do to hold their own. When the first half ended, a sadder and wiser group of canvas-clad warriors sat in the club bouse while Coach I fay ward and Coach Swenson endeavored to instill more fight into our team. With Cnpt. Finn injured and Vezina also on the side lines with a broken knee, the locals were left with but two extra men as only four substitutes were carried on the trip.
The second half was a repetition of the first with neither team able to gain much ground consistently. Toward the end of the third quarter the “Point" secured the hall on River Falls 30 yard lino from which their quarterback scored a drop kick giving bis team a 3 to 0 lead. This was the first time in their football history that Stevens Point scored on River Falls. The home crowd went wild with joy and the officials were forced to call time in order to dear the field of these frenzied rooters.
The final quarter opened with the Falls stronger than ever. The ball was steadily advanced toward the “Point” goal. But gloom was again cast over the heads of the Red and White sup|H rters when Gregor fumbled the ball after crossing his opponent’s goal line. The ball was brought out and given to Stevens Point. Instead of kicking out of danger, the quarterback called for four tries at the lino and failed to make first down. This error gave the Falls their opportunity and they immediately took advantage of it. Fessenbecker was given the ball on an off tackle play. Seeing the opposing backs rush in to spill it, ho shifted through an opening and around left end for a touchdown, Allard kicked the goal, making the score 7 to 3 in favor of River Falls.
The Ilavwardites had the better of the argument during the remaining minutes of play’ hut failed to count The final score was River Falls, 7; Stevens Point. 3.
Page Eighty-threeRiver Falls Loses Championship
Hopes of lauding the State Championship for the third consecutive year went a glimmering Thanksgiving Day, when the River Falls Normal football team met defeat at La Crosse by a score of 19 to 0. It was the first defeat suffered by the local school on the gridiron at the hands of a Normal school eleven since 1914, when Whitewater administered a 13 to 0 beating on the River Falls field.
River Falls players, coaches and fans are offering no alibi for the defeat. They met a better team—and were fairly defeated. La Crosse played a hard, clean game from start to finish, and while River Falls should have scored, there is little doubt that l a Crosse would have proved the winner that day on any field. They had a shifty, well-balanced team, the line being heavy, but active, and the backfield working like a machine. While River Falls met a decisive defeat, the team played desperately up to the very last minute. They held their opponents for downs on the six inch line in the last period and never gave up for a second nil through the gruelling contest. Had it not been for some costly fumbles. River Falls would have scored twice early in the game. La Crosse used the forward pass effectively throughout the game. This was one of the features of the game and was largely responsible for their victory, while the inability of River Falls to catch and hang on to the ball was the chief cause of their defeat.
PaRc Eighty-fourReview of the Basketball Season
Although River Falls did not win the State Championship in basketball, the season must be regarded as successful. All her conference games were won except the two lost to Stevens Point. Stevens Point had a formidable team this year and won the State Championship from I«a Crosse, the southern winner, quite handily, 25 to 12. River Falls' rating can lie further judged by comparison with the Minnesota Colleges. River Falls and St. Thomas, who was tied with Carleton, for the Minnesota Championship, played two games, each losing to the other on the home floor by one point.
The men were all new to the team this year. Four of the regulars and three of the substitutes are due to be back. With ordinary development we should be very much in the running next year.

Page Eighty-nineReview of the Baseball Season
Prospects for a winning team, at the beginning of the 1917 season, were not ivory bright. Only three men, Bet .el, Vanderhoof and Moberg, were left from last, year, giving Coach Swenson a small neuclcus to build from. But some of the new material possessed marked baseball ability, and in Conrad, Roese and Nelson, we had a trio which was fast enough to make any college team.
Due to the coil to the colors, the sport was abolished and military drill taken up in its place. Thus the remaining games were cancelled, leaving only three games to be played.
The season opened with St. Thomas on their field. Although we were decisively defeated, it was everybody’s game until the eighth inning, when the score stood 3 to 3. Then with a few bunched hits, aided by some ragged fielding on tire part of the Normal, the collegians collected five scores, making the final count 8 to 3 in their favor. Betzel’s pitching was a feature, but poor head work on bases was largely responsible for the Normal’s low score.
The next game was played with Hamlin University, who invaded our camp with a scrappy aggregation. Heavy hitting on both sides was the feature of the contest. Neither side had the edge throughout the game and as a result the game ran into extra innings. Hamlin succeeded in pushing a runner around in their half of the eleventh, giving them a one point lead. We came to bat in our half determined to clean up. Roese drew a pass to first, Conrad sacrificed him to second. Vanderhoof readied first on a fumble by their shortstop, while Roese camped on third. Vezina flew out to left field. It was two down and two men on bases when Keilev Nelson came to bat. And Kelley sure did deliver the goods by clouting a double bagger, scoring both runners, winning the game 7 to 6.
Page NinetyThe last game was played with St. Mary’s College at Winona. “Butch” was again on the mound and pitched winning ball. But poor fielding and hitting in pinches lost the game by a score of 7 to 5.
Military drill was then taken up in the school and the remainder of the athletie schedule was cancelled. Jack Vezina, Captain.

Review of Girls’ Athletics
More enthusiasm was shown for girls’ athletics this year than ever before. Perhaps this is due to the fact that all students were admitted to the games.
The first contest between the Juniors and Seniors was won by the Juniors, who ran up a score of 19 to 13. In the second game the Seniors turned the tables and fought very hard, heating the Juniors 10 to 5. Then the rubber was played oiT. Both teams were at a disadvantage having lost some of their best players. It proved to be a very exciting game, however, and ended with the score of 27 to 9 in Juniors favor.
The Normal High School is to be congratulated on the good showing the girls made this season. They started out with a most exciting game between Third Years and Sophomores, which ended with a score of 21 to 12 in favor of the Sophomores. The next game was a hard struggle between the Freshmen and Third Years and ended with a score of 13 to 9 in the Third Years favor. The Freshmen also lost to the Sophomores—score 27 to 5. They did not show up for any more games, ami the last game was between Third Years and Sophomores, the latter beating the Third Years again 14—I. thereby winning the championship of the High School.
The real champions, the Juniors, have only lost two games this year, one to the Seniors ami one to the Independents.

Normal High School Athletics
Last Juno, at its final meeting the Athletic Committee of the Normal authorized the head of the department of Physical Training to organize a system of athletics in the Normal High School. With the opening of Normal last September the plan was made effective. I'rof. E. 0. Stauffer of the Department of English of the Normal, was selected as coach of the football team. The South Campus was equipped as a football field and the work was begun. Only twelve candidates responded to the first call but enthusiasm grew with the beginning of actual work so that a few weeks later a field of eighteen were coming out regularly for practices. A good team was soon in sight and was being carefully trained bv the coach.
Four games were played. The strong Roberts team was twice defeated by decisive scores. A number of players who would hardly have learned the game had they had to play on the regular Normal squad came out for this team and were given training and secured experience which will make them valuable men for Prof. Hayward’s squad in a year or two.
Football was a success.
Shortly after the close of the football season basketball was begun by the High School students. A good team was soon whipped into condition by the efficient coaching of the proficient “Jack” Vezina. A good schedule of games was arranged, the majority of which were won by Vezina’s lads. Ti c season developed no stars, but a commendable showing was made by many fellows so that we have reason to hope that another season will see Athletics Firmly Established m the River Palls Agricultural High School.
Page Ninety-fiveThe “N” Club
The ‘ N” Ciub was organized this year for the purpose of uniting more closely the men who have won letters in athletics. We hope to help promote good, clean athletics and at the same time bring the spirit of men who have gone out into the world back to our athletics.

....Ed. St addles
The Agrifallian Society has undergone a very hard struggle for existence this year.
Owing to the fact that so many of our agriculture men being called out all tl rough the year to fill positions and answer the call for them to serve their country. Rut through no fault on the ) art of the organization nearly every meeting meant the election of some new officers to take the place of those who had to leave for one of the above mentioned reasons, however the Agrifallian did not fail to do its part as best it could along its lines of service.
Our organization served some programs creditable to any group of intelligent agriculturists.
And last, but. not least of the eventful year, was held on the evening of March 6th, the annual Agrifallian feed, at which there were thirty students and four members of the faculty present. After being served to a sumptuous oyster stew that was so well cooked by Prof. Jacobson, the professional (stew maker) and served by his assistant bottle washers and ambling waiters, Dewey Williams vs. Frank Lesser, a good program was rendered, officially headed by our toastmaster, Prof. Prucha. After which all present expressed their appreciation of the work of the Agrifallian Society in relation to specific things that will be required of them as successful agriculture teachers and farmers.
In this, the closing of the year for this organization, wo hope and wish that in the opening of the new school year in the fall of 1018 to open the year with a boom and close saving that it was the best year on record for the Agrifallian Society.
Page Ninety-nineT HE River Falls Normal School is the only educational institution in the State of Wisconsin recognized by the Federal Government to receive Federal aid for the training of teachers in agriculture. This is probably the highest recognition that has come to any Normal School in the United States.
The State Board of Vocational Education made a thorough survey of the state to select the school for the training of teachers in agriculture, to receive Federal Aid as provided by the Smith-Hughes Act, and found that over half of the special teachers of agriculture now teaching in the public schools were from the River Falls Normal. They asked for plans and courses of study to be submitted. River Kails submitted the plan and courses of study that are in operation at this school. When plans and courses of study were submitted to the Federal Board at Washington, that board approved the River Falls plans and complimented them as the best plans that had been submitted by any state. This distinguished recognition is an honor that this school can well be proud of.
River Falls was the first Normal School to give a special course for the training of teachers in agriculture. The plan and course of study originated in this school five years ago has resulted in supplying over half of the special teachers of agriculture in the public schools of this state. At state stock judging contests, the River Falls graduates have carried away much the larger number of prizes. Many of the schools that have made the best showing in the teaching of agriculture in this state, have River Falls graduates in charge of them, the development being largely due to these men.
This school not only has the training of teachers of agriculture, but has the supervision and direction of all vocational agricultural education in this state receiving Federal aid.
The River Falls Normal gives a twelve-months-of-the-vear school in agriculture. It has over 100 acres of school farm with stock and equipment, as well as school connections with the largest manufacturing institutions, and veterinary barn of the state, where students get practice in the actual work. The school autos give the students access to many of the finest herds of different breeds of dairy cows, as well as creameries, cheese factories and packing houses where the actual work is done on a commercial basis. This gives to the school a much larger and more practical equipment than any state can afford to install at a school.
The continuous school throughout the entire year gives the best possible opportunity for teachers and others who desire to take agriculture training during the long summer vacation. It enables the student to begin the year at the beginning of any quarter and graduate at the close of any quarter. The demand for teachers of agriculture is far greater than the supply, so that the graduate has a place waiting for him.
This school also gives a course in the training of teachers for rural schools, this department having the advantage of the agricultural department for that part
Page One Hundredof their work. This department in a very important one for this part of the state, and offers one of the best opportunities for those desiring this training.
Tlie rural school positions havo been made more attractive by the state aid for rural schools. The splendid work done in this department has made it very popular, as is indicated bv its growth in the last few years.
For some time this school has been giving the third year or post-graduate course to prepare especially for teaching in high schools. Those who have been teaching in the grades and desire to tit themselves for the higher field, have found this department of great value to them, as well as those who desire to train for the high school work before leaving school. The large list of River Falls graduates now teaching in high schools, indicates, the value and importance of this department.
These special departments are not abnormal growths that stand out like knarls on the oak, but round out the school work making this Normal a complete educational institution for the training of teachers.
The student body is more equally divided between boys ami girls than is usual in Normal schools. The growth of the River Falls Normal during the past five years has been a wonderful growth. During this five years the school has graduated more students than during its previous thirty-six years. The high positions held by these graduates in our public schools is evidence of the high efficiency of the work done in this school.
It is the organization of well selected departments that makes the River Falls Normal a unit in co-operation and spirit for high efficiency. The large student l»ody with its well balanced attendance of young men and women, lends itself to school sports and school societies of great value to the young person who is going out into the world to teach and take a place in society.
While the River Falls school maintains the Normal ideal, it has a character of its own. We believe that scholarship is more important than method. We believe in keeping abreast with the growing demand in the fields of education. We want our graduates to fill the best positions that are offered. We are proud of our alumni, and they are proud of their Alma Mater; it is one big live spirit that includes all.

“G. O. P.”
The G. 0. P.—Girls on Promotion, was organized in the fall of 1913.
Although only five years old, the Society has proved its mission by its active loyalty to the school.
There were only eleven old members with which to begin work this year; and, as it was necessary to have a larger group to accomplish anything, initiation of new members was the first event that took place, increasing our number to forty-one.
The interest and active part the girls take in furthering “A Greater Normal Spirit ' is demonstrated at various football and basketball games.
The G. 0. P. has also seen the serious side of affairs as they stand this year, doing their bit by knitting, making bandages and writing cheering letters telling of Normal doings to our boys in camp and “over there.”
The members who leave Normal this year will never forget good G. O. P. times and the spirit of co-operation and companionship there gained.

The Camera Club has had a greater activity this year than at any previous time in its brief history. It has attempted greater things. Meetings have been held every Monday night instead of every second Monday as before. Each alternate session, as nearly as possible, has been devoted to a study of the theory of photography. The idea has been to become familiar with the "why” as well as the "how” of the fundamental photographic process. The rest of the time has been spent in actual work—making applications of the theory wherever possible.
The membership roll lias been larger than ever before. At the present writing, the list includes thirty-six names. However, the encouraging feature of the work is the high grade of the results of the efforts of individual members. At the middle of the year, the best of the work done by a majority of the members during the first semester was placed on exhibition at one of the regular meetings and a large portion of this indicated considerable skill and artistic ability. The Camera Club, we hope, soon may be recognized as an organization that is doing some real work and fulfilling a mission that may be worth while in the life of our Normal.
The officers of the club have been as follows:

The purpose of the Aurelia Literary Society of the River Falls Normal School is to create an interest among the girls in the literary work. It also has a social function, that of bringing its members into closer friendships.
Meetings are held every other Wednesday evening. Good programs consisting of a variety of selections arc given by the members. Some of the special programs we have had this year arc a Scotch Program, a Patriotic Program, a Christmas Program, and a Lincoln Program.
Tile first social event was a dance given after the initiation for the new members at the beginning of the year. Just before the holidays we had a Christmas party, which every one enjoyed.

The Normal Glee Club started out the year with a rush. Although we had very few tenors, new men came in to take the places of the men who were graduated the previous spring.
New songs were taken up and under the splendid leadership of Mr. Hanna, the club mastered them. At the present time we arc fully prepared to give our spring concerts which we are confident will meet with great success.
Another feature of the Club is the quartette, made up of men picked from the bass, baritone and second tenor sections, with Mr. Hanna taking the first tenor position. The quartette has made rapid progress this year and we know it will gain a wide reputation on the spring tour. The quartette, outside of the regular Glee Club concerts, is planning to give two full concerts of its own.

The Normal Band this year has made an enviable reputation. The reputation of the organization has not been confined to this community alone. It has been requested by several of the nearby towns to take part in their programs and patriotic celebrations, and it has formed a major part in the exercise of the home town and school.
With Professor Eller as leader, the Band has reached a point of near perfection and intends to give a great account of itself and the year’s work in the annual concert.

The orchestra, although handicapped for numbers, has developed a great deal since last fall.
The orchestra has shown itself useful in playing for the school and class plays. The aim of this organization is to play a high grade of music and play it well. Under the combined leadership of Messrs. Howard and Eller, the orchestra has certainly reached its aim.

The “America Pi ret” program, given under the direction of the Social Committee in the crowded Auditorium last Friday evening, was a pronounced success. Many have said tiiat it was the best program of the hind the school has given for a long time. The playlet given by the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades of the training school and the tableaux and colonial dancing by upper class students were unusually fine. To Miss Berg and Miss Fleming is due the credit for the excellence of the grade performance. Misses Schlagor and McMillan deserve unstinted prais for planning and managing the tableaux and dances. The musical numbers, and readings were ably given. Every member of the fchool heartily commends the giving of such free of charge programs as these. May we have more of them!
On the evening of February eighth the Social Committee had arranged for a Valentine party in the men's gymnasium. It came off in great style each class trying to show off to the host of their ability. Even the faculty came in on the show off stunt and did so with their usual brilliant style. After the different stunts had been pulled off rcficdimcnts were served, and flashlight pictures taken of different groups. The following poem contributed by some unknown person describes very well the different phases of the program:
ST. VALENTINE PARTY.
Hey Bill! were you at the party the other night at eight?
”No.” says Bill, ‘ but I hear that it was great.”
“It surely was.” says I. “a very swell affair,"
For wit was out in glory and the faculty got its share.
When the crowd has found their places in the scats about the gym. Malett tapped order with a rake—I’m told that it was tin.
He announced the evening's program and the turn in which they’d come; The Junior band got playing and the procession formed in line.
As to its snappy music they began to march in time.
There was an elephant and a camel, if I’m right.
A ferocious beast within a cage that could eat a Fresh on sight.
And, Bill, the snake charmer was the cutest little thing.
But the clown’s white chickens had them guessing.
For the poor little fowl was squeezed out of .breath.
And now the poor Juniors arc mourning its death.
Wild Buck and the cow girl Mary May,
Made lots of noise, but hadn't much to say.
The Spanish dancers in colors brilliantly gay.
Played their small part in a right jovial way.
Now Whiskey Joe had a bottle full of dope.
As an incentive in life and a foundation in hope.
But Matilda, his wife, was a mighty good dame,
Who in fashion shows many, had won herself fame.
The two little ladies who so well kept in step,
Were nymphs of the forest, so chuck full o' pep.
Page One Hundred Twenty-oneThen a familiar strain didst intunc the air within,
As the band struck up an old-fashioned hymn
That filled us with a feeling that brought us to our feet
As we recognized the Goddess as the beauty heard to beat.
The clown’s speech about the circus, or what it was to be.
Was a sort of a farce or a one-act comedy.
But we hand it to the Juniors—their brains arc not blunt;
And we thank them very kindly for their porch and circus stunt.
And then came the third year on a rostrum to portray,
A group that’s quite familiar for we scc_ them every day;
Miss Stewart as Dean of Women, did rightly till the bill,
And the announcements that followed were good enough to kill; Of course you knew Christy, or at least you really should,
For even Mr. Hunt says that Armond was good;
Miss Rankin came from some way western state,
To tell about the suffrage that’s beginning there of late,
Her toggery was spiffy, if we may call it such,
But her talk about the women didn’t amount to much.
The way we fell for Hayward’s bluff, was almost a shame,
But the manner in which he did it was an alibi for blame,
We all believed he meant that Ames had just returned;
From the regions of Milwaukee, if he hadn’t been intcred.
His speech was but a prelude to that which was to follow.
For most' of us were suckers the bait and line to swallow.
The Seniors arc good bluffers as was shown by their act,
As they played the part of faculty, assuming bluffs for tact.
The suggestions for improvements and other matters, too,
Were given consideration in a method that might do.
Now the motion about the porch swings being put upon the porch, Caused a heated argument, but not enough to scorch.
They talked about the things a student could not do,
And what they really accomplished is left for me and you.
Seniors make good teachers, so put it in your book,
That you’ll always find them fishing with something on their hook. And if they catch us napping they’ll carry out their test,
But for their party stunt, I’ll let you say the rest.
The Freshmen had to apologize, though sad, it is true,
For they were lacking numbers and couldn’t carry through.
The Sophomores did their stunt in a moving picture style,
It certainly was splendid and we enjoyed it all the while.
We congratulate the singer for his songs were simply great,
And Casy’s baseball story was a narrative first rate.
Page One Hundred Twenty-twoY. M. C. A. Stag Party'
On the evening of February 1st, in the men’s gymnasium, occurred an event of much interest to the men of the student body and faculty.
The annual Y. M. Stag Party was attended by nearly every man in the school and was one of the season’s social triumphs.
The progi am opened with a boxing match between the well known lightweights. Bergman and Demulling. Both are skillful boxers and the bout ended a draw, with both boxers finishing strong.
After a few minutes intermission, a Court Case was called. The parties in the case were Kdw. J. Prucha, Plaintiff, vs. Messrs Goble, Karges, Davison and W. Clark, defendants. Mr. Prucha brought action against the defendants to recover certain wood which had been cut mostly by said Prucha, but which had been willfully and maliciously withheld by the defendants. Mr. Prucha also asked §100,000 damage for injuiy to the health of his wife and himself caused by cold house due to lack of fuel, also for injury to his residence caused by broken water pipes.
The plaintiff proceeded to prove his case by competent witnesses in the persons of Messrs. Segerstrom and May. Mr. Prucha was also put on the stand to swear to the facts named in the complaint.
The defense placed several witnesses on the stand including all defendants. Mr. Davison was the star witness, lie spoke in broken Swedish which could not be understood by the court and jury. The attorneys, therefore, called for an interpreter. This request was granted and Mr. Jacobson, who is an expert linguist in both Swedish and English, was appointed. Mr. Jacobson’s interpretation of the evidence given by Mr. Davison was the most interesting and amusing part of the trial.
Attorneys for the plaintiff were Messrs. Hayward and Hunt of Centerville, and for the defendants Attorney Mnlott of Prescott Road. The attorneys fought hard and the case was exciting throughout.
The jury retired in charge of Sheriff Swenson and in a short time returned with a verdict which gave to Mr. Prucha all of the wood and $100,000 damages. Prucha. was to pay the defendants $40 for the time they had spent going to and returning from the wood lot and cutting away the brush while Prucha chopped the wood.

Our school annual would not he complete unless sonic mention was made of the Alumni who have carried on the work before us. In after years we will always look in that department for the record of our class because as we pass on another class will take up our work and we no longer will see our names in the locals, among the organizations. or in the class departments. . .
In most of the editions of our book there has been a chart showing the differentiation of work in which the Alumni arc engaged and the per cent. This year the Military list takes its place among the others. Statistics show that it is ranked third from the highest, the number of graduates in service being about seventy.
Alumni mectin' are a-comin’,

One short year has passed since we. the class of ’17, passed from the sanctum of our beloved Alma Mater into the battle of civil strife. During this short year we have learned and profited by experience. We have met and mastered many difficulties. Evidently this short year has been very profitable for most of us.
In behalf of the one hundred and ninety-three members of the class of '17, I wish jlhc class of ’18 the greatest of success as they enter into the work before them. This slogan should be our guide:
"What a man soweth.
That shall he also reap.”
This being true, it is essential that every R. F. N. graduate should so conduct himself that the reward shall be only honor and glory for our beloved Alma Mater.
Friends and classmates, I wish you the heartiest greetings and may you ever think well of your former rivals and sometimes opponents, the Class of ’17.
RALPH S. HANSON.
Greetings from the Class of 1896
To all who come into the.race of life,
There stretches far away the line where meets Blue heaven with earth. The gaze is up.
The head held high, the shoulders back.
The hands arc clinched, the back is straight.
The knees well bent, and sprung the feet.
All stretch away to where the goal invites.
All have as equal start. All eyes arc fixed On one who strides away with easy step.
He sure will reach the goal of all his hopes.
But low he slackens in his stride.
His gaze has dropped, his eyes no longer Seek the blue of heaven, but filled with that Which meets the line of heaven.
He grovels in the dust
Then here comes one. the second in the line.
Who surely must attain the prize he seeks.
He’s stopped. The pebbles of the way Have hurt his feet. And where’s the next?
He, too, is counted out. His knees together Knock from weariness. And there is one Whose back a streak of yellow shows.
The hill's too high, the copse beset By robbers is, the meadow has a bog.
The sand will sure pivc way beneath his feet.
But who is this—this one who trails the rest Upon the start, who got away With even, measured step, whose feet At times grew heavy with the pace.
Whose bade did ache, whose legs.
At times did tremble ’neatn the load.
Who. when he thought to drop beneath the strain Hooked ever up though blurred at times his sight.
And when he thought his lungs would burst.
Behold, he got his second wind.
His eyes cleared up, his strength returned.
And then with easy step, and springy stride.
He passed in triumph to attain That which is his by right

There will be reunions for the following class this year: 1883. 1888. 1893, 1898. 1903, 1908. 1913.
Were I asked to characterize in one word the alumni of the River Falls State Normal School. I should say “loyalty.’ This loyalty to our Alma Mater expresses itself in many ways, but some of the chief public manifestations are the Reunion Banquets held each year at the various teachers’ conventions, notably at Milwaukee. Eau Claire and of recent years at Minneapolis.
These Reunions give ns an opportunity to meet our old classmates; to become acquainted with other, older alumni who have reached a higher place on the ladder of success, to learn to know younger men. just fresh from school and full of enthusiasm for the future; to hear something of the doings at River Falls from our President.
I hope every member of the class of 1918 will arrange to be present at one of these Reunions when he attends his first Teachers’ Convention during the coming autumn. He will find them as full of inspiration as any other event of the Convention and will go home feeling fresh enthusiasm for his work because of his heing a graduate of the best school on earth—the River Falls Normal School.

Eau Claire, WIs., March 22, 1918.
When first we part wc do not heed The loss that parting brings;
An “Au Rcvoir united soon,"
Robs partings of her stings.
A tinge of sadness o'er us steals That years so swiftly fly;
With joy the future beckons still,
We simply bid '‘Good-bye."
The golden mill stone now we reach, Nor falter, nor retreat;
Have faith, press on, not yet "Farwell, Wc hope again to meet.
Who knows the love and loss wc feel? We turn with clasped hands
And loyal hearts, with "Adois"
"To God,' who understands.

Rules for the Correct Display of the Stars and Stripes
There are no federal laws in force pertaining to the displaying or hanging of our national flag. There are, however, several regulations of national force bearing on this subject, which arc observed by all true lovers of the flag.
In raising the flag it should never be hoisted to the top before it is nnfnrled. Instead, it should be unfurled before it is raised and left free during the act of hoisting. It should be raised quickly, but lowered slowly and with dignity. No mechanical appliance should be used to perform this action.
The flag should always be allowed to hang straight; it should never be used for decorative purposes. When the national colors arc desired for this purpose, the red, white, and blue bunting should be used.
The flag should never be hoisted upside down excepting as a signal of distress at sea. In this case it may be knotted in the center of its length, thus forming a “weft," which makes the distress signal more easily recognized from a distance.
Never allow the flag to trail in the dust or water, nor allow it to touch the ground on shore, or the deck of a ship. It should never be placed where it may be easily soiled or contaminated, nor should it be placed over chairs or benches for seating purposes. No objects or emblems or above the flag.
International usage forbids the placing of the flag of one nation above that of another with which it is at peace. Such an act is considered as an insult and is followed by a demand for explanation and apology. When occasion calls for the display of the flags of two or more nations, they should be placed on separate staffs or halyards and on the same level, the national flag being given the place of honor on the right. The same should be done when the national flag and state flags are displayed together.
When the Stars and Stripes are passing by on parade or review the observer should, if sitting, arise, if walking, halt, stand at attention and uncover.
The use of the flag should be confined as much as possible to its display on the staff, but where used as a banner the blue field should hang to the north in streets running east and west and to the east in streets running north and south. When the banner is hung in buildings the field should always be placed at the right.
When the flag becomes old. faded, or worn out. it should no longer be used as a banner, but should be privately destroyed by some method such as burning, which does not suggest irreverence or disrespect.
When the Stars and Stripes float from the flagstaff of the White House from sunrise to sunset it is an indication that the President is in Washington. The flag flies over the
Page One Hundred Thirty-sixSenate and the House of Representative wings of the capitol only when they are in session or during a recess. Always at adjournment, whether at the end of a day's work or of a session, the flags arc lowered.
There is now a law in force which forbids a trademark being registered that comprises "the flag, the coat-of-arnis, or any other insignia of the United States or any simulation thereof." In 1917 an act was passed which provides penalties for the desecration, mutilation, or improper use of the flag within the District of Columbia. The Department of Justice has held that any alien enemy who tears down, mutilates, abuses, or desecrates the United States flag will be regarded as a menace to the public peace and will be subject to summary arrest and punishment.
The flag should in only exceptional cases be displayed before sunrise or after sunset and in unfavorable weather conditions. Over the cast and west fronts of the National Capitol, and over the adjacent House of Representatives and Senate office buildings the flag waves day and night and through all conditions of the weather.
At every military post or station in the United States it is customary, regardless of wind or rain, to raise the flag quickly at sunrise and lower it slowly at sunset. While the flag is being lowered the band plays the Star Spangled Banner and if the band is not present the field music sounds, "To the Colors," and every soldier stands at attention and salutes the flag.
Cadott, Wis„ Dec. II. 1917.
I am verry sorry that I am unable to be at River Falls before sailing for France in January. It would have been a real pleasure to meet you all once again. However. I shall always carry the River Falls spirit wherever I go and hope to again attend the dear old Normal at the dose of this great strife, which can be nothing but victory for America.
My best wishes to everyone at R. F. and ray hopes are that the dass of 1918 will be the best ever.
Rockford. HI., Jan. 18, 1918.
On the whole with our lack of experience I believe we arc making wonderful progress and I have a great deal of faith.
If the war keeps on we will be able to have quite a powerful lot of fighters. The pride and self-confidence of the men is very evident, and while weeks drag along and many of us do not feel any closer or better prepared for actual fighting, a period of six months or a year will see considerable improvement It is a new thing for most of us to be just a small part of a large thing. I hope to be able to write you more advanced experience soon.
EDGAR A. BAIRD.
Page One Hundred Thirty-sevenCamp Davcus, Oct. 25, 1917.
The Y M. C. A.’s arc certainly doing a wonderful work for the soldiers. Each evening thousands of men gather there to write letters and later m the evening tolisteii to some form of entertainment. Sometimes the entire bunch sings songs. Uver mere, "We’re Going Over,” "Indiana,’’ and the new version of "Oh, Johnny, arc very popular.
Here’s a lot «f luck to the old school. Greet our friends for us and bid them goodbye—We're off to the front.
Very truly yours,
LIGHT and COIT.
A card was received from these two after they had landed "Over There."
Camp Pike, March I. 1918.
In traveling we find that people are aware of the reputation established by the R. F. N. S. Therefore, it makes it much easier for graduates from any of its courses to obtain desirable positions. They always prove their ability to instruct others. This army life is a great thing for us all, whether we are aware of it or not. It has a great many lessons in store for us if we only take an interest in what we do. There are problems which arise that require character to settle them right.
ALBERT J. DAVIDSON.
Camp Green, Charlotte, N. C., March 1. 1918.
Will let you know I am in military service at Camp Green. I like it and expect to
be in France in the course of three months. River Falls.
I would appreciate very much a letter from HUGH BRILL.
“Somewhere in France,” February 11, 1918.
Our voyage across the water was a rather pleasant one. I came on a very large boat. We were conveyed through the war zone.
Let me say that the government is giving every means of protection for our transports and as a rule a submarine has not a chance of getting one. On board the ship were about three times as many troops as people live in your town. Our meals were fine and we have plenty of good entertainment. We were on the water about eighteen days. No submarines showed up, but it was reported that we missed a torpedo by a short distance.
Now as to my experience in France—We traveled about four days and three nights across France to get to where I am now—just behind the line. This gives you an idea as to the transportation facilities. The rate is about ten miles an hour at the most.
At present I am at the U. S. Army Specialist Schools. I will be here about four weeks and by the time you get this letter I will probably be mixing with the "Boche.” It is a good school and we arc quartered in stone barracks and have absolutely no heat, but plenty of blankets to keep us warm. There is no heat in France.
1 like the. French people very well. Every able man is in uniform. A great many of the women arc wearing black but they smile.
Take it as a whole this war game is sure a great one. Of course there are a lot of little inconveniences, such as a hot bath, laundry, etc., left out of the original plan, but outside of that things might be worse.
It seems to me it is up to the U. S. A. to win the war and it looks to me as though they were going to do it.

Wc, the joke editor, and nol»ody else, which makes it plural, wish to attract, call and secure the attention of the unassembled multitude in all the seriousness of a “talk to me by hand” frankness, to the following predulatory abbreviations of these sedimentary or sentimental pages, to and at these important, imposing and imperative facts.
Fact the Onc-st.
The Normal knocker will not vibrate with its usual pulsations this year, for the weekly news is too busy supporting women suffrage.
No joke in these columns is more than 50 nor less than 10 years old, had had experience in both grade and high school work, and will without doubt—Personal application if necessary.
All contributions signed or bearing the mark P. D., arc the work of the printers devil and the joke editors cannot be sued for the offense.
No respectable, decent, good-looking, or otherwise unusual person in, on, or about the Normal is wittingly, and malice afore thought, omitted from the honor roll of these pages. God bless you all. Amen!
Prof. Hanna (in English grammar class) : “We ought to have more cases than we do.
Prof. Hanna (expounding sentence forms in grammar class): Miss Lctson, will you give me an example of such a sentence?
Miss Lctson: "He will come cither Sunday or Monday."
Prof. Hanna: Probably Sunday evening.
Wisdom, on back scat: Probably both.
Little Girl in First Grade to Little Boy: "What is your name?"
Little Boy: "Ford."
Little Girl: I wish that was my name ’cause it’s pretty.
Little Boy: I don’t like it very well ’cause all the kids call nic “Tin Lizzie."
Mr. Stratton: “How do you like the Mongolian race?”
Student: “I didn’t sec it. I went to the ball game.”
Mayme Preston is quoted as saying that she was going to order her commencement dress early because it takes so long for goods to come by freight. Good idea!
THINGS WE ARE PAID TO TELL
I. That Mayme Preston is again heart whole and fancy free.
II. That Miss Mosher will conduct a class is sign language in the library from 4 to 8.
III. That Dug actually carries 2V» hours work!
IV. That Sleepy LeTendrc and John Linger have joined the Y. M. C. A.
THINGS WE ARE PAID NOT TO TELL (But the price wasn’t high enough.)
1. That Eva Cole interests aren't Loyal.
2. Where Vera Hawn gets her blushes.
3. Ida Dickey’s weight.
4. Why Theilcr doesn't have a girl.
5. Why Evelyn Davison went to the lecture course alone.
6. That Manley Clark refused a good position because a married man wasn’t wanted.
7. Why Ruth Cheney was so anxious about the la vallaire around the neck of Number 45 of Glenwood City.
8. What Wentz means when he says he is going to C. E.
If a little learning is a dangerous thing, are the Normal students really in peril?

A LITTLE SONATA ENTITLED ”A GUST OF WIND BLEW THROU AUGUSTA”
As I was coming home from nowhere.
One day, last week, one night,
A lady in black, stood right in back.
All dressed up in white.
She spoke no speech and said no word,
Why, all she did was talk.
And as I stood there I kept on running.
As fast as I could walk.
And then she yelled at me so loud,
So loud I could not hear her,
And when I thought she was farther away,
I knew that she was nearer,
“Who goes there,” says I to I,
"No one.” said she to she,
“Is it a ghost?” said I to I,
But I did not answer me.
MAYBE IT WAS READING GLASSES Father, what makes Fat’s nose so red? .
Glasses, my son.
Glasses of what. Father?
Dead Editor: My father is a saloon keeper and he beats my mother. What shall I do? Dear Subscriber: I am afraid nothing can be done. If your father is a saloon keeper, he evidently has a license to liquor.
A German book, by a Frenchman, with a torn back and an appendix covered with ink. Your honor, I can’t serve as juror, one look at that fellow convinces me that he is guilty.
Sh-h- that’s the state’s attorney.
Mr. Wright (to Armond—Playing the “Glow Worm’’): Do you play with variations? Armond: No, I play with difficulty.
Mr. Laramy: Will you go to the theater with me this evening?
Miss Hawn: Have you secured the seats?
Mr. Laramy: Oh, now you arc not as heavy as that.
Mr. Wentz: Why did everybody cry in that death scene I played last night?
A. B. G: Because they knew you were not really dead.
Margaret Bundy: I wish the Lord had made me a man.
Ches. Sanderson: He did. I’m the Man.
Nature gives us our faces, but we must pick our teeth
If the rain rains on the flowers to make them fair, why didn't it rain on you? However. a face is a face and everybody’s got a face and that one was pushed on you.
Isn’t it true that your father was a policeman?
No, but he used to go with them a great deal.
One Hundred Forty-eightThe Seniors “Get-us-not” Address Lincoln—esque
Four score and seven days ago the Seniors brought forth upon the campus a new pennant, created by class members ,and dedicated to the proposition that Juniors and Seniors are not created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great celebration in commemoration of that and following events, which tested whether these Juniors or any other Juniors are worthy of Senior consideration.
We are not met on the scene of that great struggle. We have come to bury the remaining Juniors, to pick up the torn shirts, and to lend our handkerchiefs, with all sympathy to the remaining Juniors. But, in a truer sense we cannot bury (the undertaker has done that), we cannot pick up the shirts (there isn’t enough left of them), we cannot lend our handkerchiefs (the Juniors have departed). The brave Juniors living and dead who struggled here have buried themselves far beyond our power to dig ’em up or plant ’em deeper. The school will little note or long remember what we say here but they can never forget wliat we did here. It is for us the living Seniors rather to be here dedicated to the young task remaining before us which fighting here we have thus far so nobly advanced.
It Is rather for us to be dedicated to the little scraps remaining before us, that from these dishonored sleepers we take increased spirit, and that we here highly resolve that this school shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the Seniors, by the Seniors, and for the Seniors shall not perish from this school.
