Text from Pages 1 - 168 of the 1919 volume:

The Meletean 19 R F.S.N.S. 19 YEAR BOOK OF THE CLASS OF 1919 RIVER FALLS STATE NORMAL SCHOOLFOREWORD IT HAS been the purpose of the staff of 1919 to record in this Meletean the patriotic achievements of our fellow students and Alumni. We feel that this school is deeply indebted to those two hundred seventy-one men who have proved themselves to be the minute men of the World’s War, summoned, not by a call from a Paul Revere, but by a call from within. They willingly placed themselves as Gibraltars in front of the advancing Huns, ever saying that Democracy, of which our Alma Mater is an expression, shall not perish from the earth. We are exceedingly proud of those nine heroes who, through the fortunes of war. did not lose their lives, but rather gave their lives, and it is this pride that has prompted us to dedicate this book to them. We have tried to portray the life of our school in a way to please you. If we have failed to record the happenings of the year that you would like recorded, we ask your forgiveness. We feel that we have encountered obstacles never before encountered by a Meletean staff, the very life of the school seemed at stake, due to conditions forced upon us by the influenza epidemic. However, we have always met and conquered them with a smile. We feel deeply indebted to Mr. Davison, our class advisor, who has so ably guided us through this piece of work; and memories of him we shall always keep close to our hearts. We take the opportunity at this time to extend special thanks to Mr. Jacobson for the great amount of time he has spent in making the photography of this book an outstanding feature. We wish to thank all who so generously aided in the making of the Meletean of 1919. THE STAFF. Page TwoDedication O those men of ours who ave their all in the mad A rush of war for the sake of those ideals which to all true Americans are more precious than life, we, the class of 1919, tenderly, reverently, and proudly dedicate this volume. Page ThreeMELETEAN TWO VIEWS OF THE SCHOOL Page F. X 1919 X W® — MELETEAN— m J. H. AMES, President Page five X 1919 Xmm irw To the Class of 1919 You ask for some formal, parting word. I am loath to make it either formal or parting. Why. it seems but yesterday that you as ‘'yearlings ' invited Mrs. Davison and me to your first wiener roast! Yet that yesterday was over four years ago. There were a few more than sixty in the class then. Today, more than eighty women and over forty men are enrolled under the Double Nineteen banner. In all the forty years since the school graduated its first full course class, no more serious obstacles have confronted any class than those which have blocked your path this year. Your school is proud of the record you have made in face of them. Your enthusiasm, your optimism, your loyal and earnest support of the ideals and traditions for which the school stands, the spirit of fine harmony that has marked your every endeavor as a class— these arc but a few of the characteristics of which the school is proud. Upon this record I congratulate you. I also congratulate you upon your connection with this institution. Tomorrow, as you scatter widely to your fields of new work, the preparation you have received here for your high calling will come to mean more and more to you. Oh. you’ll forget some things, but I'm sure you will always remember with pride the fine standards of rugged, devoted Americanism set for all of us by President Ames in this time of national crisis. Yes. and you will remember the school halls, the school yells, the hard tugs, the great games, the common joy at victory and sadness at defeat, the hours of study, the tasks well done, the sincerity of your instructors, the sweet associations, the cool walks, quiet drives and all that student life brought to you. Just a step now and your dear, old Normal School days will lie behind you. In the tomorrows perhaps you will get together sometimes and toast the old school in some such lines as these: Alma Mater ours, again we come to thee. Though records few we bring, and few may claim. Yet, still we would thy loyal children be, And iii proud toast again would praise thy name. Ah, most unworthy son indeed is he Who in thy halls his earlier years would spend, And then forget the debt he owes to thee. Or. thankless, fail in praise his voice to lend. New homes, new forms ami faces, have we found; We may in other climes our work pursue; Rut fast within our memories still arc bound The lessons dear which have been taught by you. So Mother ours—our friend, our guide, in one— With heart-accented thoughts we bring to thee This meagre record of the things we’ve done. These little proofs of lasting loyalty. Hail to you. then—and farewell! Sincerely yours, w Walter B. Davison . Advisor of the Class of 1919. Page Six X 1919 XMELETEAN WALTER B.

Many colleges, believing in the wisdom of the latter plan, and knowing that the loss of so many students would greatly cripple the work of the universities, strongly advised the students not to enlist, or at least, to postpone their enlistment. Despite this advice, the students thronged to the recruiting offices, and. in a short time, many colleges and universities were practically depleted of men students in the upper classes. For the most part, these students went into training as enlisted men. mostly into branches of the service where their training at school gave the government a minimum, rather than a maximum service. To the government, was thus presented Hie problem of preventing this haphazard enlistment of college men. and of adopting some means by which it might properly select, train, and distribute the resources of the colleges. Material for officers’ training camps was needed far above the available ascertainable supply- Trained men were needed as experts in every line. To meet these needs, the trained man must be properly placed and further trained with the least unnecessary delay. For this purpose, the Students’ Army Training Corps was formed on October 1. 1918. and all students eligible were urged to enlist for assignment to this branch of service. Over 500 colleges, universities, and normal schools over the country reorganized their systems and turned their resources over to the government. In the River Falls State Normal School, the S. A. T. C. started on October 1st with a small company of four officers and 97 enlisted men. and for two months we worked and trained, trying to do in a few weeks, what in the regular army it takes years to accomplish. The writer can conscientiously say that the spirit and enthusiasm shown by our men here is rarely, if ever, equalled elsewhere in the army, even in the officers’ training camps. It has been frequently observed that in schools where military training prevails. the school life is inconsistent with the duties, the routine, and the discipline of the army. If such is the tendency in the average college or normal school, this tendency was surely overcome by our men in masterly style. In some schools, the criticism has been made that the S. A. T. C. members regarded studies too much as merely incidental, a necessary evil that must be endured with the minimum of effort. Not so at River Falls. Practically to a man. they kept up West Point efficiency in their studies as testified to by government inspectors. The River Falls spirit which wins in other endeavors, came to the front to do its share in making a success of this mighty government undertaking to help win the war.

There were many of our .boys who walked and talked and played with Death, out there amidst the cratered convulsions and hlood-muddcd hell-holes of Chateau Thierry, and St. Mihicl, and the Argonne forest and elsewhere. There are sons of River Falls Normal who were privileged to die the noble death, who sleep forever under the skies of foreign lands. Words but feebly express the obligation we ever owe to them. They met their duty. And we proudly reckon among our veterans, those who have come back scarred, wounded, torn, and poisoned. Brave men. ever will they carry with them the marks of service. Some have been honored rightly by receiving the D. S. C., the Croix de Guerre and other governmental rewards. Yes, you men who were sent over, you have been enriched by every experience the battle afforded. You have fought and you have died, you have been maimed, gassed, been sick, weak and hungry; you have been humbled and glorified in the walk through the Valley of the Shadow. All honor to you—Our Veterans. "Over hill, over dale as we hit the dusty trail.” This old marching song of the artillery is equally applicable to the experiences of the dusty doughboy, our medics, our engineers and our sailor boys, scattered in every training camp in this country and abroad, drilling, striving, yearning. It was hard not to get over or into the fight, yet the discipline that comes, "when you’re in the army now.” taught you to do vour duty as it was laid out and never to reason why. Fullest praise to you. our men in cantonments, officers’ training camps, chemical plants, naval training stations. S. A. T. C. units or wherever you were, on land or sea.—ready to do. even to the utmost, when needed. Some died in these places too. under unavoidable hardships. Truly, these stars of gold arc as brilliantly emblazoned in the eternal blue of memory, for they. too. gave their lives, their all. All glory, then, to the khaki and the blue of the River Falls Normal, our soldiers and our sailors, men of every rank, our contribution to Victory.

She reached the London office of the Y. M. C. A. early last September. Immediately, she was assigned to canteen work in Liverpool, where her ability soon placed her in charge of a dozen girls in one of the best huts—"The Knotty Ash.” After four months service in Liverpool, she was called to the “Y” headquarters in Paris, and has since been assigned to work somewhere in Germany with the Army of Occupation.

Page Thirty X 1019 XMELETEAN IN MEMORIAM We shall hold in revered memory, those who have paid the full measure of their devotion to country and humanity. Some died in the training camps and hospitals of the Homeland, and some upon the battlefields of foreign lands, but whatever the circumstances, each gave his all, his life, in the line of duty and facing the foe. We may well mount the loss of these heroic young lives, passing out at the very beginning of life, but what is so worthy as a life given to a noble cause? Some arc chosen to live and work and sacrifice, others arc elected to die for country and humanity, and though the life be brief, if given for a great and worthy pur| ose, is not that life glorified? A life is not measured by its length in years, but by its purpose, its sacrifice. Page Thirty out X 1919 XSons That Are Stars Irwin Dickey enlisted July 16. 1916. He served six months on the Mexican border, during the Mexican trouble, and was again called to active service in March, 1916. and continued in active service until his death.

In January lie was attacked with influenza, from which he partially recovered. Later lie suffered a relapse, and after an illness of about two weeks, he passed away. He is survived by his father. James Manion, two brothers. William and Louis, and a sister. Mary, •uneral services were held at the Catholic church at Prescott on Monday. March 10. Rev. rr. Hauer officiating:. When taken sick. James was a student in the Normal school and a member of the graduating class. He was a young man. whose fine qualities had won for him a host of friends, and no one looked forward more eagerly than he to playing his part as a useful citizen. The love and high esteem of his many friends were beautifully shown in anxious and tender solicitude during his illness, and. afterward, in the beautiful floral offerings, which were sincerely appreciated by the familv. Few things seem more tragic or stir us more profoundly than the sudden rounding to a close of a life that is prepared and longing to render noble service. But human vision is short and can not know how great a compensation the All-kind Father may bestow in place of the rewards that a lifetime of service might have won. lames’ life will long remain an influence for good in the world. His teachers, his schoolmates, and his many other friends mourn his loss and extend their sympathy to the bereaved family. -----------------------X 1919 X ------------------------------- Page Fifty-sevenX Itit X Page Fifty-eightPage Fifty-nineJunior Class OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER Rudolph Prucha - - President Tkrkssa Vann - - Vice President Blanche Reardon - Secretary Verna Webb - - - Treasurer Victor Berg - - Sergeant-at-.Inns SECOND SEMESTER Irving Jacobson - President Norman Baird - - Vice President Audrey Armstrong - - Secretary Kendall Wentz - - Treasurer Felix Ulj.ricii - Sergeant-at-Anns Of the one hundred thirty-five Juniors now enrolled, only thirty-six belong to the original band who migrated to Camp Normal in 1915 A. D. Although sjnall in number, compared to Junior classes of other years, we are not lacking in allegiance to our Alma Mater. The accomplishments of our members are varied, ranging from 'Tussology" to the higher branches, such as athletics, oratory and music. We arc proud to say that over half of the former S. A. T. C. men belong to the Junior class. School spirit is one of our specialities. We are also fond of displaying our numerals, as was demonstrated to the Seniors, when “20” in lx ld white letters shone from the roof of South Hall during the first week of school. The Seniors have greatly aided us in many wavs. We truly feel a profound respect for them, although, with our ordinary vision, we are unable to sec the haloes hovering over their heads. The underclassmen look up to the mighty Juniors; the Faculty have tolerated us. We trust that we have not impeded the progress of the school, and when our days are over at Normal, it may be said of us, “Not canned, nor flunked, hut gone before.”MELETEAN Juniors Helen Anderson Audrey Armstrong Norman Baird Gladys Anderson Lyman Baird Victor Bergii Dwight Chin nock Erwin Davidson Ivdward Currier .

The object of this association is best stated by our constitution, namely; to improve ourselves socially, educationally, and religiously. We have at present, sixty active members. 'Phis shows that the Catholic students have their spiritual welfare at heart. On account of the shortened school year, due to the influenza epidemic, social activities have suffered. Our first social meeting was held in the gymnasium. It was mainly a mixer and the evening was spent in playing games and taking part in numerous contests. Mrs. Pruciia outclassed all her rivals in the nail driving contest by driving thirteen nails per minute. Without a question, the most enjoyable social event was the entertainment given us by Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Prucha at their home. It is only fitting and proper that I mention the keen interest which both Mr. and Mrs. Prucha have taken in this organization, and we feel deeply indebted to them for the advice ami assistance they have so freely given. Much of the training acquired by the student at school, is obtained through the organization of the school. A few minutes of each evening was devoted to parliamentary practice. This gave nearly all a chance to act as chairman of a meeting. Training of this nature is very valuable to students because it fits them for leadership in the communities to which they will go as teachers. Of course, the leading factor of the Normal Catholic Association is its effect upon the religious life of the students. A question box was instituted which provided many subjects for discussion and many points of our faith were cleared up. The Association was grieved by the loss of one of its active members, the late James Manion. who died March 14, 1919. Because of his cheerful manner and ready wit, he was a favorite among his comrades. Father Dickopf, of St. Bridget’s Church, has co-operated with us in every movement and is intensely interested in the welfare of the Catholic students who attend the Normal. He talked to us at various times throughout the year, and was eager to render assistance. Catholic students contemplating attendance at the River Falls Normal School, will be warmly welcomed by the X. C. A., and they may rest assured that their spiritual welfare will not suffer during their school career.

W. C. A. It is to a great measure through the efforts of the Y. W. C A. that the high ideals of the girls of our Normal are maintained. In spite of the many interruptions this year, due to the influenza epidemic, the organization has been very successful. At the beginning of the school year, the girls welcomed the new students, and. with the co-operation of the other Christian Associations, gave them an opportunity to become better acquainted through an informal reception. A number of other parties have added to the social life of the school. Through the efforts of the membership committee, seventy new members were added to the organization at an unusually impressive candle-light service. Mabel Snocyenbos and Leonora Hunter represented us last summer at the Y. W. C. A. conference which is held each year at Lake Geneva, and brought to our association much useful and interesting material. The society hopes to send at least that number of delegates this summer to add fresh enthusiasm to the work of the association next year. Leonora Hunter, as the Undergraduate Field Representative, attended the annual conference held at Chicago, thus representing the four normals in this district—Eau Claire, Superior, Stout, and River Falls. The Y. W. C. A. wish to express to Miss Sanford their appreciation of the active work which she has done in promoting the welfare of the society. Also, an expression of gratitude is extended to the advisory board, members of the faculty, and townspeople, who willingly rendered service. We hope that this society will continue to progress and grow rapidly in the work and spirit for which it stands. - X 1919 X Page Seventy-sixMadge Alton Aloa Armstrong Audrey Armstrong Julia Anderson Helen Anderson Mary Baldwin Margaret Bender Dora Bkiirend Freda Blomhoi.m Lois Bird Irene Bergum Esther Bkrgh Mabel Bridges Agnes Botolkson Mildred Cari.ey Ruth Carlson Letiia Chin nock Esther Churchill Anne Danielson Faith Dravis Helen Druley Edna Eckstein Marian Erman Margaret Follansbee Margaret Follstad May Fuller Mary Gallup Myrtle Gardner Pearl Garud Marcella Gofp MELETEAN— Y.

The members of this society realize the value of debating and public speaking and are ever ready to appear on the programs. It is from these meetings that one attains the ability to speak intelligently before an audience and also becomes familiar with the big questions of the day. With the excellent nucleus that this year provides, excellent results arc being expected next year. Already debates have been arranged with Eau Claire and Superior Normals.

The plans for the meeting have been to discuss such problems as Vocational Agriculture. the Federal Farm Loan Act. Boys’ and Girls’ Club work. etc., interspersing the talks with some sharp parliamentary practice, music and other forms of amusement. Thus far, we have had talks from Messrs. Hayward. May.

Page Eighty-ltvoo6dj NV31313NThe Camera Club has now attained its full manhood. It is proving an interesting feature of our school life and is an active and live organization. Many students, as well as faculty members, have shown their interest by their continued membership from year to year, and at the present writing, the enrollment is the largest ever. It has been necessary to add more apparatus to accommodate the enlarged membership and frequently our spacious laboratories have been crowded to the limit. The work is being promoted under the enthusiastic supervision of Mr. Jacobson. Considerable skill and artistic ability is being discovered among the various members. Credit is granted those doing a specified amount of work. All members are learning to appreciate the art of taking good pictures at any time of day or night. Emphasis has been placed on bulb and time exposures and on the use of artificial light. Some startling results have been shown. The enlarging lantern has been used successfully and efforts made at lantern slide making. Members have had practice in mixing photographic chemicals. This year, as never before, the Camera Club has shouldered the responsibility of securing illuminating pictures for the Mclctean. Not only has each member furnished several of the best results of his own work, but he has felt it his duty to assist the photography editor, Orville Fay, secure suitable negatives from every available source. The results, we trust, speak for themselves. Every member feels that the time spent in the Camera Club has been well spent. He has not only gained a practical working knowledge of the fundamentals of photography which will he of permanent use to him, but he has accumulated a collection of treasures which are going to he an everlasting source of pleasure to him in the future.

That’s us all over! Owing’ to the influenza epidemic this year, the G. O. P. girls were prevented from carrying out their plans for the first part of the year. After January 6th the usual “pep” was in evidence. Twenty-five girls roamed the halls and class rooms with bright colored shoe strings and handsome pussy-cat bows, to say nothing of the military salutes that they had to give each old member. The G. O. P. organization has its meetings every other Wednesday evening. The business, if any, is transacted immediately after the meeting is called to order. This being completed, the rest of the evening is turned over to entertainment. The programs, without fail, are always very good and very amusing. Often very interesting talks are given. Our purpose has been to promote athletics, and our spirit has been shown at all the games and mass meetings through the girls rooting. At the St. Paul game, which we consider our most important, a special feature was put on. The girls wore white skirts and middies tied with bright red ties, and hats with red crowns and white brims, on which were printed the letters G. O. P. Each girl also carried a cane tied with red and white ribbon. This long procession marched around the gym and formed in succession the letters G. O. P., which were followed by an N. Having made these letters, they continued to form a spiral on the middle of the floor, in this formation they gave several rousing good cheers. In March, the society gave a party. Each member had the privilege and pleasure of inviting a gentleman friend. An invitation was also extended to the members of the “N” Club. The guests were first entertained by a program and dance, after which refreshments were served. Members of the Faculty acted as chaperons.

This organization is made up of the athletes of the school, who have earned letters in some branch of athletics. When this club was organized there were about fifteen charter members in school. Since that time there have been fifteen new members initiated, who have earned letters in football, basketball and baseball. There will also, be a number of new men who will earn letters in baseball this spring who will qualify for membership in this organization. The constitution of this club makes the letters earned in athletics much more valuable than those earned in past years. With the club well organized now, and a much larger membership, we look-forward to a stronger and peppier club for next year, and in the years to come.

The first important event of every season is to elect a captain. LeTendre was chosen unanimously, and was a worthy leader of the squad. Coach Anderson scheduled the first game with Kau Claire, and having only a few days to whip the team into shape, gave Kau Claire a good game. When Gregor, Peterson and Vanderhoof, veterans of last year's team, returned, the squad was strengthened considerably and River Falls defeated Macalester 13 to 0. With the coming of the Rochester bunch, composed of Mattson, Bcniky. Whitney and O'Shields, we had prospects for a championship team which could not be questioned. On account of the “Flu,” we were forced to discontinue football and were unable to mix with our old rivals. "Sleepy" LkTendre - -...............................- Captain and Halfback “Bin."

Professor Swenson managed to develop a good baseball team. Joe Johnson was seen behind the bat at first, but on account of the war, he joined Uncle Sam’s forces, leaving us without a catcher. This was a great blow to the team to have Joe leave, but we trained new material and managed to give the Minnesota teams more opposition than they looked for. After a few weeks of hard practice, we played Hamlinc and were defeated by a close score. Professor Swenson succeeded in getting games with Minnesota colleges, and we won most of our games. With Mcgordcn or Peterson on the mound, we felt safe that our opponents would not hit very hard, although our support was a little ragged at times. Although we didn’t win all of our games, the season was regarded as one of the best in years. With almost all of last year’s nine back, prospects look favorable for a good nine this year.

February 27. 28. and March 1. Each of the nine normal schools was represented and Stout Institute made the tenth entry. The La Crosse team won a dear title by going through the schedule unbeaten. Whitewater was defeated by La Crosse in the final game. 22 to 5. and took second place, while our boys, after being eliminated for first place by Whitewater in a nip and tuck contest, 28 to 26. came back strong, and. by winning three successive games from Milwaukee. Eau Claire and Stevens Point, won third place and the Northern Championship. The first drawings paired the Falls with Milwaukee, and our team started out in championship form, defeating the green and white team, which was doped to be one of the strong teams of the tournament, by a ten-point margin, 25 to 15. Reed and1 Kruse were the big point getters with four and three baskets respectively; Mattson's door work was remarkable, and Peterson and Hawley, on the defensive, held their opponents ill check. In the same round, La Crossfc defeated Stevens Point, 25 to 21; Stout won from Oshkosh, 26 to 24; Whitewater down Plattevillc, 17 to 11, and Eau Claire nosed out Superior, 25 to 24. In the second round, River Falls and Whitewater met, and the downstatc team sprung the surprise of the tournament by defeating the Falls, 28 to 26. The Whitewater team was going at top form and caged eight or ten long baskets from the center of the floor, displaying an unbeatable brand of ball. Our boys put up a game uphill fight and were coming from behind to a sure victory, when the game ended. .Kruse starred in this game, getting five field baskets and Mattson ran him a close second with three. The guards kept Whitewater away from the basket, but no one could have prevented the long shots that won the game for the purple and white. Meanwhile, La Crosse won its second game by defeating Stout, 36 to 14; Milwaukee came back after its defeat at our hands and eliminated Plattevillc, 21 to 15, and Stevens Point won handily from Oshkosh, 30 to 22, eliminating the latter team. The drawings in the third round, for the teams that were competing for third place, paired us again with Milwaukee and the boys demonstrated that the first game was no fluke, by trimming them up 36 to 23. Mattson led the scoring with five baskets, while Krueger and Hawley caged three each, and Chinnock and LcTcndre counted two apiece. La Crosse went into the finals when she defeated Eau Claire, 34 to 14, and Stevens Point put Superior out of the running by the top heavy score of 48 to 15. River Falls lost on the draw to determine whether they or Stevens Point should meet Eau Claire, and were forced to play Saturday afternoon. The game was anybody's until the last few minutes, when Mattson and Reed broke through the Eau Claire defense for three baskets. The final score was 31 to 25. This victory gave the Falls the right to meet Stevens Point in the evening for third place and also for the Northern Championship, as both teams represented the northern half of the state and all the other northern teams had been eliminated. X Page One Hundred Six 1.919 XLa Crosse won the championship handily, when they defeated Whitewater, 22 to 5. The Whitewater boys failed to show any of the basket shooting that they displayed against us and they were unable to stand the pace that the heavy La Crosse team set. When the boys went on the floor to meet Stevens Point, it made their fifth appearance in three days, and scarcely three hours had elapsed since the gruelling contest With' Eau Claire. In addition to this,- Stevens Point had had the opportunity to rest all day Saturday. Despite this handicap, the Falls team put on the best game of the tournament and clearly outplayed the Point, defeating their old rivals, 25 to 20, and, in so doing, winning third place in the conference and a clear title to the Northern Championship. In this game, Reed and Kruse were again the big point getters with three baskets each; Hawley got two, Krueger and Mattson one each. Reed also made five free throws. Krueger played a first-class game, holding Richey, the star Point forward, to two baskets. The brand of basketball displayed by the team was all that anyone could ask for and the game manner in which they came back after defeat and won three straight games, marks the 1919 team as one of the best that has ever worn the red and white.

I picked up my rifle and peered through my periscope, scanning the land toward Berlin. I saw troops coming toward me. I immediately began to run and. slowly, hut successfully, made my way through the labyrinth of trenches and underground passageways. 1 came to the entrance of a dugout and stumbled down the steps into this subterranean cellar-—dry and comfortable as a mill pond in January. 1 stopped and collected my thoughts my steps and soon was going on toward the Atlantic. Far off toward the German trenches 1 could hear the intermittent rifle fire and the rattle of machine guns. This, however, only made ine go faster, if such a thing were possible. 1 came to a ravine, so 1 ventured on top of the ground, for 1 was well hidden from the enemy. Suddenly. 1 heard a whizzing, and 1 knew that the Germans had sent a high explosive shell on my trail. It landed about twenty yard from me and buried itself in the earth. I also was trying to do the same thing. I waited, what seemed hours, but. in reality, it was only a few seconds. I felt like some great piece of humanity just hugging that shell and waiting for the shrapnel to find a lodging place in my anatomy, but it was only a dud. 1 rose quickly and looked in the direction of the enemy, but I could sec no one. 1 climbed down into a nearby trench and sat down on the firing step. I knew now that I was safe, at least from the biting sarcasm of my comrades, hut, of course, the Germans might drop a shell near me at any time. Suddenly, I heard footsteps just around the traverse that separated the hay 1 was in from the one on tlic right. I grabbed my rifle and prepared to meet whoever might be coming. It was a German soldier. He came toward me. our bayonets clashed, and Sergeant Chambers jabbed me with his bayonet and yelled. “Everybody up.” I had over- kitchcn. All morning as I sat peeling potatoes I went over my horrible dream, for Camp Grant is a wonderful place to dream of war at night, and day dream of “her" while you peel those potatoes that come from some farm in northern Wisconsin—perhaps from “her” father’s farm near River Falls. slept and had not heard “first call."

In 1913, the school purchased the Blood tract, which consists of fourteen acres, a farm house, and an old barn. The old barn was tom down and a new small one constructed. TwO years later, the Normal acquired the north thirty-two acres, and in 1917, the south forty acres. The land used for farming, consists of eighty-five acres, including tire twenty-five acres of rented land. The school campus is composed of twelve acres, an athletic field of two, and the orchard of approximately two acres. The amount and location of the land can be seen on the accompanying map. A rotation of crops is made for each year, so that the largest yield per acre can be obtained from the land. The soil of the south forty is in poor condition at the present time, consequently a large amount of soy beans are to be raised each year to help fertilize the soil. In addition to this, limestone is spread on the land to replace ingredients of the soil. Alfalfa, corn, barley, potatoes, cabbage, wheat, and clover will also be raised during the next five years. Although farming is the chief occupation, attention is being given also to dairying and poultry raising. There arc six cows, forty chickens, four pigs, and four horses. The profits from diversified farming are larger than those from dairying or agriculture alone. The Normal has a dairy which supplements the milk supply of River Falls. Approximately forty-five quarts of milk arc sold each day. This year the Wisconsin State legislature has appropriated $5,000 with which a new barn is to be built. This barn will be constructed this summer, and will be equipped with electric lights, waterworks, twin silos, eighteen stanchions, four pure bred Guernseys and Holstcins. and four stalls for horses. A large number of demonstrations and experiments are performed by the Normal students, such as: testing milk, testing cows, judging corn, filling silos, planting fruit trees, grafting, studying grains and their habits, surveying and testing soil. This farm and dairy has proved to be very helpful in the work in agriculture, and also tends to make men more efficient in their agricultural knowledge. One of the important points in the operation of this farm is to study how a very poor farm can be built to a high state of productivity, with the idea in mind of doing this in an economical way. The aim is to run the farm in a practical manner. The main object of the school is to advance the work in agriculture, and give special attention to the training of teachers for the public schools of the state in special departments of agriculture. This school is now the designated school in Wisconsin for teachers training in agriculture under the federal law giving aid for vocational agricultural instruction. Blanche Wince . -X 1919 X—--------------------------- Page One Hundred SeventeenMELETEAN What the King of Fairies Did for the Flowers Once a long time ago when the fairies ruled the earth, there were many, many flowers, but strange to say. there was only one flower of each kind. The soft-eyed pansy had' no pansy brothers and sisters; kinless, too, was the fragrant rose, the lovely buttercup, the stately lily. Yet. stranger even than this, the flowers were all of one color, a pure white. There was not even one poscy with a delicate pink or a dainty yellow tinting. All of these flowers grew in the flower garden of the earth, inside a high wall. One day, the King of Fairies decided to take a journey. He wandered many miles over wooded hills, through beautiful valleys, and drifted across sparkling lakes on a willow leaf. At last lie came in sight of the garden wall. The raindrops, which had threatened to fall, were now coining down from the sky. The King of Fairies did not want to get wet. “I will go into the garden," he said, "and find a place to hide while it is raining. I'm so very tired, 1 may take a nap." Lightly, 'he flew over the garden wall. He hunted around until he found the coziest place to sleep and to keep out of the rain. Where do you suppose it was? In the Jack-in-thc-Pulpit. When he awoke, the sun was shining brightly. The flowers looked fresh and glistening after their bath. He heard them talking among themselves. "Did you sec the lovely rainbow?" the violet asked. "Yes, oh, yes,” answered all the flowers. "Oh, how I wish I could be a beautiful pink just like the color in the rainbow.” sighed the rose. "I wish I could be yellow as the sunlight streak we saw." murmured the buttercup. "I want a dark color, for it is not becoming for a preacher to be as gay as the rest." jack-in-the-Pulpit announced. Thus they whispered, each flower longing for a lovely tint. Now the King of Fairies was so grateful for the shelter they had given him that he decided to do his best to get some color for them. They were greatly surprised when they heard him speak because they did not know he was in the garden. “I am sure the Rainbow-painter will give me some color for you,” he said. 'Til go and see. He traveled a long, long way. Finally, he came to the end of the rainbow, but the little old man who paints it was nowhere to be seen. Soon he came sliding down in a mist of violet color with a paint brush in each hand. “I have come after some of your beautiful colors, for the flowers that live in the garden,” the King of Fairies said to him. Rainbow-painter was very glad to give him some paint, for he was very proud of his colors. “Just wait a few minutes until I put a few more strokes of yellow right here at the end. It wore off while shining so brightly yesterday. There, that’s done. Now you may have all the brushes. I’m sure you’ll find enough paint of every color in the brushes. I hope you have as good luck in painting the flowers as I have had in keeping my rainbow bright. Goodbye.” When the King returned, it was nearly sleeping time for the flowers; some of them were already nodding. He came very quietly so he would not disturb them. He called all his fairy painters together, and. giving them each a brush, said. "Now each of you take a brush and do as I tell you. Xono. you take the violet brush and paint the violet down in the corner. Skylark, you take the yellow and paint the buttercup. Bluebird, this pink is X 1919 X Page One Hundred Eighteen — M ELETEAN — W just what the rose was sighing for." To each he gave a brush until he had a color for every flower. When they came to the Jack-in-thc-Pulpit they mixed all the colors, and in that way gave him the very color he wanted. When the King’s helpers had finished their task, he sent them all away. Now while they were sleeping, the King of Fairies called his carpenters and commanded them to tear down the wall. As soon as the high wall was removed, he blew three blasts from his fairy horn. Hardly had the echoes died away, when Aeolus and his four sons stood before him. Bending low. they asked his will. "Now while the flowers sleep." said the fairy king, “blow the flower seeds over the land: then there will be flowers everywhere." Aeolus and his sons began, at once to obey the King. For seven days and seven nights they blew and then the Fairy King said, "Now you may stop. The seeds arc scattered far and wide.” Can you imagine the surprise of the flowers when, in the spring they awakened and found not one flower, but many, many flowers of every kind, all dressed in lovely colors for which they had longed ? Evei.yx M. Keith. River Falls Normal, Then, Now, Sometime In 1898. a new three-story building was built to replace the old oi which had burned that year. That and a small campus, with only a few small, half grown evergreens to add to its beauty, and a few busy students comprised the River Falls Normal. Mr. Parker was President and his office was what is Miss Sanford's office now and the old assembly room was our present Library. Mr. L. II. Clark was just beginning his life work of chasing Freshmen out of the hall and Miss Pardee's face was also a familiar one. In what is now Mr. Davison's room, Miss Mosher reigned supreme and vainly tried to break up tctc-a-tetcs at the back tables, for that was the Library. The first floor was occupied by the grades of the Training School and on the third floor wore the Science Laboratories. In 1919 the Normal is changed somewhat. Old South Hall is still doing its bit, but a new building. North Hall, was added in 1914. In this building we find the grades of the training school, the office, assembly room, science rooms, and the men's gymnasium. Many boys in khaki are seen on the large well kept campus, for we have a Students’ Army Training Corps of over one hundred boys. A large service flag filled with stars, shows that we have not been idle in the fight for Democracy. About five hundred students arc enrolled, and the school spirit is splendid. In 1940 the institution is changed again. Besides the old familiar buildings arc several new ones devoted to Agriculture with all the modern equipments. Davison Hall devoted to History and Social Science has been added besides Boys’ and Girls' Dormitories. The campus is well known for its beauty. Mr. Ames still occupies the seat of honor on the rostrum, Mr. Kargcs still tells of the state tournament at La Crosse, and Miss Mosher still tells of the wonderful ability and quietness of the Class of 1919. What the River Falls State Normal School will lie in the future, time alone can tell; but the Class of Double 19 wishes for its Alma Mater the best of success. Marcella Goff. T9.

After three or four days in the trenches, in a field, under a tree, or in a dugout, you might want to take a nap. But Cootie goes out and gets his mademoisoille and promenades down your back, around your waist, over shoulder, etc. Of all the things you hate worst, is to think of Mr. Cootie out walking with his girl when you arc four thousand miles from yours. The other night I was a weary, tired, worn out, ragged tramp and wanted to sleep. Cootie thought as long as Fritz wasn't shelling he would call on his girl. I could have stood it if three million other bugs hadn’t thought the same thing. ■ Each had a sweetheart and, you know, each couple walked in a different direction. I got tired of scratching about one o’clock and took my underwear off and hung it on a tree and said, “Promenade if you want to, I’m going to sleep.” Then I rested better. One night I ran on to a mattress that Fritz had left. I took it to my dugout. That was a mistake. I found that I had brought to my dugout the Three Hundred Forty-third Division of German Cooties. No sooner had I dosed one eye, when Von Cootburg came down my back with a million cooties in mass formation. It wasn’t a surprise because no had old Von given the word, when Captain Jimmie of the American Regiment for reserves. From their cities Around My Belt. Under My Leggins, and the countryside they came. I spent a restless night. Sad to say. there were no casualties on either side because at present I have them all, and if I said that each family had one addition I would not be doing them justice.
