A VERY SERIOUS MATTER
Zlihe 1Flormal School in 1Retrospect emo llbrospect
HE Northern Illinois State Normal School is at last a two-year-old. Its second brood will soon
M rn leave the nest and try their wings in independent flight. The trying days of the Hrst term in the
l fall of 1899 when we shut ourselves in a few rooms and tried to forget the noises of the workmen
are with the years beyond the Hood. And yet, our first day when we gathered in the study hall,
talked together for a little t11ne, enrolled, decided upon the lessons ror the next day and separated
to prepare for the first recitation -it all seems but yesterday. Dear, dear! And to what strange country do the
hurrying months betake themselves? And the anxious days when we wondered where our people were to live,
when we had room for two more but not for three- they are gone, too, thank heaven! And while we are thanks-
giving let us not forget the "Ellwood Syndicate " that built for us the roomy and comfortable club houses.
And do you not remember how soon we settled down to business and were an old-fashioned, genuine school,
and all within a week? And the crimson days with their resplendent gorgeousness- when did another institu-
tion have such a send-off? And dedication day, with the proverbial DeKalb weather, when our well-laid plans
went all wrong, and the grove and the thousands of comfortable seats were left to the rain while we crowded into
the " gym." and stood up for two mortal hours and never complained? Good speeches they were, too - Governor
Tanner and President Draper and Superintendent Bright and Senator Berry, Doctor Andrews. Colonel Ellwood
and the rest. And the wonderful evening function with the lovely ladies in their exquisite gowns and the beauti-
ful queen of the carnival with her charming maids? Well, it was a great day and the weather man could not
spoil it, let him try ever so hard. ,
The first year slipped away so pleasantly and so quickly that the two ends of ittseem to be quite pushed
together. Commencement came on as a sort of surprise and our " sweet sixteen " with their brand new sheep-
skins which never were before, were out in the world ready to immortalize their alma mater. W'ith the summer
school on hand small space we had for resting. Nearly one hundred and sixty were with us for the greater part
of the live weeks, and at last when the wind-up came, near the close of july, we drew the Hrst long breath and
hurried away to the woods to get that blessed renewal for the new year which is so necessary to the weary school-
master and schoolma'am. .
With the reopening of the school, in September, as many appeared as had been enrolled in the whole course
of the first year. And such good pupils, too- So per cent. of them high school graduates. Aurora and Elgin
turned out in force and several other cities followed suit, while the smaller towns were by no means unrepresented.
The year has gone off charmingly. We have learned that northern Illinois stands by. It really begins to look
as if we should need to have only one entering class a year. This is a delightful prospect. The winter has been
long and severe, but good health has been the rule. This out-door life seems indeed to be quite the thing for
many of the girls, for they have steadily increased in health as the season has advanced. Commencement day
will soon be here again and almost fifty will receive their official endorsement at the hands of President Goodrich.
This is quite phenomenal for an Illinois Normal school. The school at Normal, which opened its doors in 1857,
never touched the forty mark until 1896, and then as if it had quite exhausted itself it fell below it the succeed-
ing year. The largest class that our friends at Carbondale have so far sent out falls a little short of the thirty
mark, so that we feel that we have done pretty fairly, by comparison, at any rate. All success in the world is
relative and if we do as well as our neighbors- especially when they are such good neighbors-we ought to feel
some little sense of satisfaction.
But what of the future? That is always the insistent question. It is the land of hope and promise. Respect-
ing it we can only say that the auguries are favorable. The summer school will open on the 24th of June and
the indications now are that we shall have a respectable attendance -respectable in quality, of course, but also
in numbers. It is getting noised about northern Illinois at last that there is a Normal school at DeKalb and that
we have abundant room in our building for ive hundred students, and admirable accommodations in our club
houses and private families for nearly the same number, and that the faculty, after its two years of experience,
has come to know itself pretty thoroughly, and that we are ready for whatever the future may have in store for
us. At this writing the general assembly has show11 itself to be satisfactorily gracious. The strong box will be
quite well supplied with the sinews of war. We shall have the needed teacher of literature, and the director of
physical training and the long desired music teacher, and a thing or two more that need not inow be mentioned.
We trust that we have shown ourselves worthy of patronage and that the young people from northern Illinois
who want to be teachers and who are well equipped with academic disciplines will come to us for the professional
training which we believe will be of great help to them in their gracious ministry of caring for the young.
Thus far we have been sailing on comparatively unruflied seas. There have been no annoying conflicts of
any character. The people of the town have accepted us at our own estimate, and that ought to be high enough,
surely. And so with high hopes and buoyant spirits, and abundant enthusiasm we are looking out toward the
new years that are hurrying this way. May we be worthy of our great calling.

T is not always the best policy to blow one's own horn but ours is such a tremendously large
one - why it is even larger than the one the class IQOO presented to us a year ago - that we of
necessity must blow it ourselves. Its mighty blasts reverberate throughout the length and
breadth of Illinois. In the lirst place we are noted for remarkable brilliancy as a class. From
1 Em that great first day, the day of the opening of the N. I. S. N. S., we have shown an unusual
tendency to make eights and nines in the class record books. Of course it has made life monoto-
nous for the faculty, but there has been such a perfect understanding existing between teacher
and student that we have overlooked the times when the nines were inverted merely for variety's sake. Note us!
Gaze upon us! We, the class of Nineteen-one, are the lirst to complete the course as planned by the N. I. S. N. S.
This fact is in truth a thing to be justly proud of. In after years when we return to visit our alma mater
we will proudly say, " I graduated with the first class of the great school."
O! those Hrst weeks of our Junior year were days of discovery and peculiar sensations. Everything was so
new, so new. The building was new and in many respects not completed. There were new faces and new names
to learn, there were new 'ways of doing Arithmetic, new things to learn about gullysg new ideas to be ingrained
in the Psychology class and worse than all, new things to eat at the club houses. But we were daunted by none
of these things. We screwed our courage to the sticking point and stuck, and we are glad we did, for We have
become not only the pride and joy of the school, but a blessing unto ourselves and to the community at large. We
didn't lizzle out at the end of the year, either. Ask some of the class of IQOO about our junior night program
given during commencement week.
If we were brilliant as Juniors we have been no less brilliant as Seniors. James and Rosenkranz are no
longer lions in our path and, moreover, we are experienced teachers. Early in the fall of this last school year
we came to take charge of the various rooms in the DeKalb schools. Those first few weeks, without suiiicient
help, were, indeed days of experience for us in the arts of teachingg but as the weeks went by the work grew
easier and many of us found the useful, noble and bright side of the teacher's life. We will look back upon
those days as red-letter days in our lives.
In athletics, literary contests and other social affairs of the school we have taken prominent parts. In basket
ball, football and baseball we have been well represented. Five of the presidents of the literary societies and two
of the Christian associations have been Seniors. We all know what our Seniors did in the contest this year.
Two members of our class have even been teaching in the Normal department. If you would know more about
us, you will find our pictures and a short statement of our merits in the following pages.
These two years have been happy as welleas instructive. We have made friends whoin we will never forget.
We have come in contact with good influences which will have lasting effects on our lives. Our ideas of life
have broadened and brightened under the leadership of our honored president and faculty. Though it is hard to
disband, as a class, let us keep with us these high and noble ideas of life which we hold so dear, and let us indeed
be veritable " persons of influencef'

URICKA! Here we come, the Juniors of 1901. We have listened with a patience worthy
, of such a class as we are, to the advice and admonition of our friends, the reverend
N' i q? Seniors. We have even smiled indulgently at some extraordinary burst of egotism.
I A ' We l1ave tried in this as in everything else to merit the good name we hold in the N. I.
' N. S. In order to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the reputation of which I
0 speak is not a fleeting fancy born in the fertile mind of a Junior, I, the humble historian
of this class of 1902, shall try to recount to you a few-merely a few,-of the deeds of this
illustrious class. We began our career by being a very large Freshman class, remarkably free from the verdancy
characteristic of most Freshman classesf In Arithmetic we added, subtracted, recited the aliquot parts of a
hundred and papered and carpeted imaginary rooms till even Mr. Parson was forced to reward our faithfulness
by a -but never mind the grade, it might make the Seniors jealous or discourage the Freshmen.
Under Miss Hoaglin we learned to recite Poe's " Bells" till you could fairly hear the " tintinnabulation "
that so musically swells from the jingling and the tinkling of the bells. And from that happy life we passed into
our present happier state. In our junior year perhaps the two studies in which we won the greatest laurels were
the two 'ologies. In Biology our plates were " things of beauty " and our notes contained statements which for
the originality of their scientific thought were truly gems. About Psychology I shall say nothing. I shall only
hope that some day it may be possible for you to gain access to Mrg Keith's grade book and in that day all will be
But it must not be thought that all of our time was spent in plucking the fruits of the tree of knowledge. A
glance at the names of the members of the basket ball team will soon convince you that such is not the case.
What would the team do without Kays, I-Iipple, Givens and Mofet? Who will forget the game of a few weeks
ago? Surely not the Seniors, nor yet the Faculty! In any field of action where experts were wanted the demand
was met by a ready response from the Juniors. Football players were needed. Eight of the Juniors answered
to the call. From what class did the team choose its captain? From the Juniors, of course! An editor for the
Northern Illinois was wanted. Did a Senior ill this place? 0h no! only a Junior could occupy such a position.
Of course the editor must have an editorial staff. Five out of the eight members are Juniors. Assistants were
needed by the Faculty. Did they call upon the Seniors? I hardly need say they did not. Who carried the high-
est grade in the Senior Geometry class last term? There was a Junior who wanted that grade and consequently
she obtained it. Another thing, among the twelve contestants seven were juniors.
But, Seniors, the time has come when we must say " farewellf' How varied are the thoughts which the
word brings! With you it marks the beginning of the day when you can put into more practical use the knowl-
edge gleaned through these years of study. To us it means the occupying of the place which for several months
we have felt quite competent to lill. Thus it is with mingled joy and sorrow that we bid you farewell. Our best
wish for you is that in your life work you may achieve the same degree of success that you have in your prepara-

i HERE are many events of the school year that are of vital importance to individuals or to small
l' f" .
groups of studentsg but if we are seeking after the occasion which stirs the student life to its
depths which binds the student body with closest ties and marks the Hood-tide of school spirit,
we must turn to the society contest Here each student finds a place. He is either on the plat-
form or represented there he waves his banner and claps his hands in the audience, and is kept

-1 a 3-N . . ' . . . .
' im' busy between times bowing and smiling a welcome to the friends of other years-1. e., of last year
-who come Hocking back to receive a fresh inspiration and renew their youth.
The contest of 1901 was a typical one. Every contestant did himself and his society credit. Unfortunately
it is not in the nature of contests that all may win, but if there had been a dozen aspirants for each point on this
occasion, it is not rash to assert that the ones who were counted the losers would have carried off second honors.
The debate was doubly 'interesting because the points at issue were already familiar to the audience through
the Supreme Court decision pending at that time. The contestants in all points presented pleasing variety in
both selection and rendition. Excitement ran high, and the vigorous applause and general demonstration that
greeted each speaker and followed him at the close of his effort furnished exercise in kind and quantity sufficient
to relieve the strain of four hours or more of attentive listening. j
In the decision of the judges the debate counts two points, vocal music, essay, declamation, instrumental
music and oration each one point. Dr. Cook read the decisions, tantalizing the audience by prefacing with what
seemed to be an interminable list of irrelevant announcements. The news came at last, however, and the
Ellwoods had won the debate, the Gliddens all the other points. Needless to say the last thing on the program
was mighty cheers. The literary judges were A. G. Lane, Chicago, Rev. Geo. H. Wilson, DeKalbg S. E. Bradt,
DeKalb. The judges in music were Mrs. S. F. Parson, DeKalb, Miss Maude Lincoln, Ottawa, John L. Cook,
Chicago. The Ladies' Lyric Quartet and Miss Constantine Lang added delightfully to the musical part of the

F all organizations connected with the N. I. S. N. S. there is none which has furnished more
real enjoyment to the students than the literary societies. When the week's work of study-
ing is over one may spend a pleasant evening in the Auditorium listening to the students give
A orations, sing or debate, or he may take part himself, which is equally profitable, for the great
- benefit which one derives from appearing on the literary program cannot be overestimated.
Q If we are able to judge the future by the past the Glidden Society has a brilliant career
before it, and those who are yet to become members of the N. I. S. N. S. may count themselves
among the favored if their names begin with the letters that will admit them into the society.
The past year has been one grand series of victories-victory after victory. At the beginning of the
school year there were many old students, thoroughly imbued with society spirit, who were able on that
memorable day in the study hall to make such thrilling speeches concerning the one great event of the year-
the literary contest. For weeks after that meeting when you saw a Glidden you also saw the purple ribbon.
The contest came. Our contestants had been chosen with great care and had received such skillful training that
after their efforts there remained only the decision of the judges to substantiate what already had been prophesied
by all -- that the Gliddens had gained the victory. They received five of the seven points.
The basket-ball games between the teams of the two societies fostered society spirit which had clcveloped so
rapidly at the time of our literary contest. The game between the girls of the societies resulted in a score of 14
to 4 in favor of the Gliddens. Our girls did some skillful playing, and were spurred on to better work by the
frequent yells from the gallery, by the waving of the banners and by the not-to-be-dispensed-with tin horns. A
series of three games between the boys of the society followed. Our boys did good playing in all the games.
Mr. Givens, the acknowledged athlete of the school, was always ready for any emergency that might arise. The
Gliddens won two of the three games.
Choice literary programs have been prepared by the committees. Mr. Madden acted as president during the
term in which the contest storm was brewing, Miss Carpenter, while the storm was taking place, and Miss
Lascelles during the calm which followed. It is difficult to say which served during the most trying time. A
great many Gliddens leave our school at commencement, but the foundation of our society is so thoroughly estab-
lished and such competent ones are ready to fill any places which may be made vacant that we rest assured that
all will be well, and we who go shall remain as we were, true and loyal Gliddens forever.

9 t LTHOUGH our society was very well organized last year, there still remained a little
5. pioneering to be done this year. The idea of a change in time of holding the contest was
4f'xV'g it '15 'Q advanced. The Glidden Society wished the contest to be held the last of the fall term and
our society the last of the winter term. Joint society meetings were held, committees re-

held the first of the winter term To this both societies readily agreed. For some time it
R60 S 57 seemed as if our society lacked in spirit and interest, but as the winter term approached
and contestants were elected the spirit rose. All the special meetings as well as the pro-
gram meetings were well attended. The gatherings in the West Society Hall did much toward impressing upon
every member of the society the fact that he, in part, was responsible for the victory or defeat, if it came. Well,
wellwe remember them. The Ellwood Society, true to its sense of kind-heartedness, good will and generosity,
allowed the Gliddens the majority of the points in the contest. Our friends made us a polite bow and recorded
the second inter-society contest as a victory. Do not think, however, that our liberality has vanquished us.
The excellence of the literary programs rendered during the year show the literary talent possessed by our
society. The high standard of excellence once set up has not been allowed to fall. It has been a noteworthy,
and at the same time encouraging fact, that the new students have taken such an active part in these programs.
In graduation the society loses a number of its sturdiest members, yet we rest assured that the people left at the
helm will pilot our society through the turbulent Waters of the coming year in the utmost safety. They have
shown a willingness, an ability andpa determination that must succeed.
Only those who have taken a part in programs know of the advantages to be derived from them. The
strength gained from the eifort required to present a creditable number is inestimable. It is here that we gain
freedom in speech and free ourselves from ourselves, so to speak. Here we receive a phase of culture extremely
necessary to us as teachers and which we cannot get in any other way. Those who tottered from mere fear now
stand firm as a rock, those who gesticulated wildly are calm and composed before any audience, those who
made illogical statements state the profoundest truths in the plainest language, those who sang well, sing better,
those who took no part are where they were.
From all this we see that glory is written upon our banners, and in the coming year we shall hope again to
add another victory.

SCHOOL PAPICR, school colors, a school yell! These three we must have," said the Hrst
students of the N. I. S. N. S. as they gathered in the Study Hall those first mornings to
discuss the many questions pertaining to school organization. " lint the paper," they con-
qi-fur M' tinued, " must come first," and come it did with results known to all. The first year of its
QAIQ history was so preeminently successful, thanks to its editor, business manager, and staff, that
QNX Nix no comment is needed. It was put on a strong financial basis, and a high literary standard
X X was maintained.
' Owing to these facts the burden on the management of this volume has necessarily been
lighter. It has not been our task to create a school paper in the strict sense, for the funda-
mentals were already laid down, but to add to this foundation, to make the paper as much as possible bespeak
our school life. We have striven to make the Norflzern I!!!-7102.5 a power in the school and yet in every way " our
paper." A school paper does not deserve its name if it does not come to the students from the students, a mirror
in which they see their own life reflected with perhaps enough shadows of other things to make the light and
shade more interesting, It must be a live thing, keeping pace in every way with progress of the school. We
have set our standard high. How nearly we have reached it remains for others to say.
The spirit and interest shown by the students throughout the year cannot be too highly commended. In
the first issue this year we asked for their loyal support. They have given it right royally with their money,
time, literary productions, sketches and " Barbsf' The staff have "stood by." They have shown themselves
responsible, capable persons, two necessary requisites for success in any line. But the board must come in for its
share of praise. It has been "faithful in little things." Needless to say, the Faculty in the Faculty Section has
conferred a favor on all. As the school year draws to a close and joyfully, yet sadly, are packed together the
things that have meant so much to us here, we trust the little green cover of Volume II. of the .fV0rMer1z l!!z'2zoz's
will not be left behind. If they are an index of a year full of work and pleasure, if their leaves, wl1e11 time has
brought into other scenes and interests, are still turned to with the old time interest andinspirations, they will
not have failed in their mission.

HIS association forms the nucleus of Christian interest among the young women of the
school. It has a membership of about seventy young women united for active Christian
work. At the beginning of the school year the "new girls" were given a warm welcome
by delegations of the association. Not less cordial was the welcome extended to them at
the term social Saturday night. The large attendance of the faculty and students assured the
association that it had the hearty sympathy of the school.
The Y. W. C. A. contributes to the religious life ofthe young women by its devotional

How often they will recall Estella jordan, the earnest president of the past year, and her faith-

praise. Mrs. E. C. Page has conducted it and all have felt grateful for the privilege thus afforded. The associ-
ation was represented by Alice Crosby at Geneva, and by Mary Garretson at the State Cpnference held at Bloom-

The " Round Robin," a letter which is being circulated among the
associations of the state, was greatly appreciated by all. The socials held during the
year have added much to the social life of the school.
As the year
draws to a close, we feel thankful for the work the Association has
accomplished. If it has helped the girls to a fuller realization of the power of Christ,
if it has been a means of aiding the spiritual growth of its members, and has brought
others to realize the necessity of living pure, Christ-like lives, it has accomplished the
end toward which a great part of its efforts have been directed.

" HOUGH the young men are greatly outnumbered by the young women in the N. I. S. N. S. they
.. have not permitted the latter to outdo them in the manifestation of school spirit as shown in the
literary, Christian and athletic associations. The spiritual needs of the young men have been
ministered to through the organization of the Y. M. C. A. The past year has been one of success
for our association. Mr. Ragland, as our first president, took a deep interest in the work, was
painstaking in the selection of his committees, and conducted the regular weekly meetings with
interest. We were favored with frequent visits from our state secretary whose suggestions relative to the good of
the association were kindly received and followed as closely as seemed possible.
Notwithstanding our small membership we succeeded in sending a delegate to represent us last summer at
the Lake Geneva Summer Conference of College Y. M. C. A. men. E. M. Phillips was given this opportunity
and he took up the Bible study work there as given by Galen M. Fisher, of japan. Mr. Phillips has since had
charge of the Bible section work and has been elected to the presidency of the association, which othce he has
held with honor to himself and the association.
The weekly meetings during the winter term were of unusual interest. Jointly with the Y. W. C. A., topic
cards were printed containing the topics and list of the names of the leaders for each week. The Y. M. C. A.
was fortunate in securing among its leaders several members of the Faculty together with those of the pastors of
local churches. The talks given by these men were informal and on topics well suited to the needs of young
The Bible section meets for about three-quarters of an hour on Sunday morning. The work followed in this
section is a systematic course laid down by Burton Sharman in "Studies in the Life of Christ, based on a Har-
mony of the Gospel by Stevens and Bertonf' The work in the Bible class consists of a discussion of the work
mapped out the week before, in sections, for daily study -in fact, one purpose of this work is to get students
into the habit of daily Bible study. In the weekly class meeting it is intended that only questions which have
arisen in the daily lesson shall be discussed. At these meetings we have usually resorted to the round table plan
of discussion, a new leader being appointed for each week. Our membership includes about seventy-five per cent
of the men in school, two-thirds of this number being active members.

K,-iff -' fTx f"N AMISID in song and story is the young lady of prepossessing appearance, who was very good
when good, and horrid when she was bad. This is simply the artist's method of express-
ing the versatility of her genius: being generally of such very commendable niien, the
gtg-my Gb antipodal extreme was occasionally necessary to even up matters.
5 A similar truth seems to apply to every " student body." Habitual seriousness and
prim behavior demand an occasional riot to maintain the social equilibrium. This is appar-
'sf' 4 ently the function of the Hallowe'en party, which seems already to have firmly established
itself as one of the traditions of our precocious alma mater. A
- . Q' As a " function," our IQOO Hallowe'en festivities were surely an undeniable success.
. Did we not get some good wear out of old and discarded garments? And did we not glean
the last remnants of dignity from certain professorial luminaries? Were not varied and inultitudinous objects and
materials metamorphosed into DIRT upon the gymnasium floor? And didn't "everybody have a good time? "
Everything normal became abnormal. Maidenly pedagogues appeared as rustic lassies, while youthful Freshmen
paraded the corridors with all the studied pomposity of the post graduate. The fat appeared lean and the lean fat.
Pages stalked sedately in linen dusters and the Parson Cwith some assistancej hid his sanctimoniousness under-
neath a sumptuous bandana. Ancestral gowns and bonnets
were resurrected by the fair ones, and overalls and top boots
by those less fair. Games were played and everybody played
tricks on everybody else. Even a shell game was worked on
the corn. Arithmetic calculations, psychological phenomena
and grammatical constructions yielded the floor to ways that
are dark and tricks that are vain. Tag, blind-man's-buff,
grab, and the proverbial drop-the-handkerchief were among
the entrees. A potato race brought out the latent speed of
the faculty, and developed the fact that some of them are
pretty good hustlers. '
All in all, it was a pretty good line-up, and the manager
of the show had good reason to be proud of the exhibit.
The Hallowe'en party, with its fun and frolic, its apples
and doughnuts and pumpkin pie, has come to stay. Let every
prospective N. I. S. N. S.-er, as he packs his earthly posses-
sions into his school-bound trunk, forget not to incorporate .
therein the appropriate paraphernalia for the Hallowe'en masquerade, including overalls and rubber boots, sun-
bonnet or straw hat, mother hubbard, linen duster, chewing gum, ef refem aa' Z'7gfi7ZZ'ZiZHlZ ad zfctlorem.
Y MONG the many organizations of the Northern Illinois State Normal School there is none which
K9 gives more pleasure to its members than the Girls' Glee Club. The purpose of this organization
e is to give all the girls who care for music, a chance to meet once a week and study some of the
6 - works of the best composers. We cannot but feel grateful to Dr. Cook for this golden opportun-
Q ity and we feel very fortunate in securing such a competent and faithful leader as Professor
Barradell, who comes every week from Chicago and devotes an hour to the instruction of the
Glee Club. We organized one Tuesday afternoon at the beginning of the school year. There were about
twenty of us assembled on the Auditorium platform and each took her turn in having her voice tested by singing
an arpeggio and the scale for our instructor. We commenced by studying several selections arranged for ladies'
chorus. As contest time drew near the girls thought more about this great event than of Lohengrin's Bridal Chorus,
Our numbers decreased and interest began to lag 5 but we still kept up courage and hoped that we, along with the
rest of the school, would be able to resume our former work. 4
At last it was decided to unite the two Glee Clubs and study an oratorio with a View to presenting it to the
public. At the time this is written it has not been decided what oratorio will be studied, but I have heard it
whispered that the Messiah is the one to receive the honor. C
HIS organization had such an excellent start last year under the eflicient direction of Miss Patten
"4" ' T fl that its impulse has been felt throughout this year. Seven of the fourteen boys were members
a a last year. The new members have proved very satisfactory additions, on the Whole. During
the first part of the year the rehearsals were held in the evening once ajweek. The attendance
' and enthusiasm for the work was all that a leader could wish. Later in the year semi-weekly
rehearsals were tried, but were not found to be so satisfactory as to attendance- When the diiii-
culties which attend the blending ofvoices to make a unified effect of harmony is taken into consideration, the
attainment and the value of the Work of the club will be apparent.
We have no phenominal voices-simply melodious voices that blend well and do creditable work. They
have not been Worked to the limit. With more opportunity for practice much better Work could be done. As
the school grows and a wider range for selection of voices and more opportunity for practice is afforded, the
Boys' Glee Club will improve and contribute its pleasures and benefits to the happy life of the N. I. S. N. S.
"May it live long and prosper."

As now comes forth the blithe mosquito with his "vorpal sword" for another season of feasting and song,
so also comes the camera fiend from his season of hibernating, with his one-eyed camera ready to snap you if you
donlt watch out. The Kamera Klub may have been a little
slow up to this spring-it took a few rambles, it is true, and
did give an exhibition of work done by some members, but
with the planting of potatoes and the raking of lawns its
awakening came, and several very profitable trips and subse-
quent meetings for discussion have been held.
The club has a room on the third floor and an adjoining
wash room. The latter has been fitted up as a dark room,
and it serves its purpose admirably, being large enough to per-
mit several persons to develop negatives at the same time. The
club numbers fifteen members. Its ofiicers are a president and
a secretary and treasurer. Mr. Switzer hlls the former ofiice
and Mr. Poust the latter.
Next year the school will possess a good stereopticon,
and the club may find it of interest and value to make lantern slides of its negatives and possibly to give one or
two exhibitions of work done in this line.

Among the many new organizations of our new school the Junior Dramatic Club bids fair to be one of the
most delightful. Its purpose is to present from time to time portions of the best dramas, thereby creating an in-
terest in the highest form of literature. Since the drama deals with human life-its passions, conflicts, triumphs
and failures-it touches us more vitally than any other form of literature, and because the drama is written to be
acted, there is no better way of making these great masterpieces of literature real than by presenting them as
scenes. The work this year has been on scenes from the " Merchant of Venice " and from " Ingomar, the Bar-
barian." Ingomar is translated from the German, and for language, poetry and dramatic action it is hardly ex-
celled in the history of the modern drama. The club meets with Miss Hoaglin for rehearsal every Thursday.

I INCE the organization of Ionia in the fall of IQOO, this society has grown both in numbers
'A and in enthusiasm. Organized for social and educational purposes, the society has well
succeeded in carrying out its aims. While Ionia proper furnishes opportunity for delightful
social life, its various sections have succeeded in linding a way to spend a pleasant hour
1 6 -6 i A with pront. 7
A will A. The work of the different sections during this last school year has been helpful and enter-
taining to a high degree. Under the leadership of Miss Parmelee the Current News Section
has followed the main problems and events of the year. An interesting collection of mounted pictures illustrating
current history is one result of this section's work. The collection includes not only pictures illustrating important
events, but also a number of amusing cartoons. Miss Rice has been in charge of the Travel Section, and under
her guidance the members of this section, comfortably ensconced in a room at Normal, have taken extended
trips over the continent. It is a cheap and delightful way of traveling. As Miss Rice has actually taken the
trips, the necessary touch of realism has been given by her pictures and accounts of personal experiences.
The Magazine Section has met with Miss Potter, every other week, at the home of Mr. Switzer. The pur-
pose of this section has been to keep in touch with the literature of the day. At each meeting magazines were
assigned to different members of the section for review, and then reports of these reviews were given, stories
were read, and popular authors and their works discussed. The meetings have been informal and pleasant.
They were always " come and bring your sewing " affairs and combined pleasure and profit in more senses than one.
Miss Stratford has had charge of the Art Section. Their purpose has been to develop an acquaintance with
and love for art in all its phases. The work this year has centered mainly upon the study of live or six of the
most famous artists and their works. The latter part of the year has been devoted to the study of school-room
decoration, with special attention to the pictures suitable for school rooms and the grades to which they are
suitable. Judging from the work done by the Art Section for the Ionian receptions, we prophesy that their
school rooms will be delightful places to visit.
Owing to the illness of Miss Patten, the Music Section has given up its work for the present, but they trust
that she will soon be able to resume her work. The Literary Section, under the direction of Miss Hoaglin,
made a study of Hamlet. For lighter work Irving's Sketch Book was used.
Many pleasant receptions have been given by Ionia during the year. Dr. McMurry and Mr. Switzer opened
their homes to the society on two delightful occasions. S

FE E, ARLY in the fall of nineteen hundred a small band of out-door enthusiasts conspired to do some
Cgjeu energetic Work along the lines of nature study. To this end they at once took to the woods, and
made systematic observations on the coloration and fall of leaves. All-day trips on Saturdays
gave opportunity for many collateral studies,
, Q9 5: C3 , such as lessons in horsemanship, cooking,
catching squirrels in butterfly nets, repairing
fences, and the like, for reports indicate that the Nature Study
Club believes in having a good time. It is even rumored that
there are some club secrets.
Much was learned concerning the habits of many plants
and animals. One lady actually mastered the distinction be-
tween the hooting of an owl and the mooing of a cow. Bird
migration and insect hibernation furnished interesting material.
Ohio Grove and Miller Farm were among the places visited.
During the winter season the meetings continued, and
autumn studies Were organized into outlines for teaching, or
supplemented by laboratory Work or round-table discussions.
Several evolutionary topics have been considered g the lives of
Thoreau and Agassiz have been studied, and the touch of their
enthusiasm has quickened the pulse of humbler learners. The
members of the club are Elizabeth Patten, Grace Hamm,
L. W. Ragland, Lou Baker, Mary Garretson, Adda White,
W. R. Mofet, Mrs. Philbrook, Eva Lee, Margaret Duffey and Fred L. Charles. The Nature Study Club believes
most thoroughly that " to be a naturalist you' maun begin wi' natur'," and the burst of spring has found its
members alert to glean more secrets from the nooks on the campus and from the Woods and fields about.

f lects the clubs. One can even think of her as beckoning Solon or Numa from the land of shades and
saying mournfully, " The glories of the past have departed. You founded institutions valuable to
human society, but these, the children of a younger birth, have builded deeper and wider than you.
The structures which these have raised are necessary to human existence, without them the very
- temple of life would waste away."
And we who know hardly deem this praise extravagantg for what other product of man's constructive genius
is so fundamental as this? What one is so many sided? Not only are our corporeal needs well supplied-we
have documentary evidence of a gain in weight of twenty pounds in a single term-but every possible opportunity
is presented for the development of our mental and moral natures. Historians of the future will doubtless regret
that no Boswells were present to preserve the scintillations of intellect that have continually brightened the darkest
days of club life. No word has been preserved of the wit and wisdom of the clubs. Doubtless many, like your
humble chronicler, have longed to win imperishable fame by preserving such literary gems for the admiration of
those who come after us.
You soon realize that to sit at a table, surrounded by bright faces and laughing eyes, and still preserve that
integrity of mind which is reason's mightiest attribute requires more Stoicism than most people possessg and,
even if invulnerable to these, only a heart of stone could resist the suasion of the restless stream of conversation

that surges ever onward. When gastronomic operations begin the uproar becomes deafening. liven when the
number of people speaking at once has been reduced to the customary half dozen the confusion is still confounded.
Meanwhile, various kaleidoscopic changes are taking place. A well laden dish starts toward you from the opposite
end of the table, is repeatedly " held up " on the way and arrives in a most unsatisfactory condition. You gaze
sorrowfully around, but find nothing more sympathetic than the bottoms of a dozen upturned cups. You wonder
why such mighty draughts do not check the flow of words, but observe no abatement. During comparatively
quiet intervals you catch fragments of the time-honored jokes still doing service. All subjects, however tech-
nical, are satisfactorily analyzed. The range of topics is simply marvellous. The beefsteak and the weather are
properly considered, and the daily happenings of the school receive competent criticism. All public personages,
from the faculty to the firemen, are arraigned at this bar of judgment. The full janitorial system is iittingly
eulogized, and the mud-stained way of future generations, bereft of these efficient aids, is ittingly depicted.
Wheii allother topics of conversation have been exhausted the combined irony and invective of the club is
focussed upon those unfortunate individuals whose emotional natures are potentially superior to their intellects.
Each club has several specimens of these, but, such is the fascination of "love's young dreaml' that only in a few
cases have these drastic measures proved successful. Isolation will be the last resort if an epidemic is imminent.
But aside from these abnormalities the social side of club life is interesting. At morning and noon the rush of
the day's work pervades the atmosphere, but at night we often have a pleasant, lingering time after the evening
repast, sitting around the table or gathering in the parlor for a song. We sometimes reprove ourselves for wast-
ing time, but I imagine that it is far from wasted. Years hence, when the weary years come creeping to us
through the gathering gloom of night, Von Baer's law and the kinds of attention will be among the things for-
gotten, but the memory of past hours of pleasure will still remain.
In our mind's eye, we'll see again that goodly company gathered around the long tables in the old familiar
places. The young man whose eating capacity was only equalled by his power of vocal expression, the kind-
hearted one who gained your eternal friendship by giving you her pieg and most endearingly of all the individual
at the end of the table who remained serenely oblivious to your frantic appeals for " bread." But the slow march
of Time inclines our hearts toward charity, and we graciously forgive the " slings and arrows 'I of the past. The
friendships formed and the happy times experienced will ever be among our most precious memories, and at the
end we shall count ourselves among the favored sons of fortune if, in all life's devious, winding ways, we find no
more disagreeable task than " boarding in a clubf,
CQNQQN, N EDITORIAL in the Chimga Amc1'z'am and an article in the Oulfook were two of the factors
that produced the Societas Innominata. The purpose of the organization is to form an acquaint-
ance vvith some of the great scientiiic productions of the time. Half-hour meetings are held
every night, and since November, Igoo, the time of the society has been devoted almost entirely
to "Darwin,s Origin ot Species"-the greatest book of the nineteenth century. The work
consists of reading and discussion, and from time to time some of the members of the faculty
have presented special phases of the theory of evolution, and have given us a little clearer idea of the problems
and diiiiculties involved. The work has not been light. The subject matter is difficult and the unvarying reg-
ularity of the meetings has, at times, seemed a trilie burdensome. But the society is firmly convinccd that only
by this method will it obtain the desired result.
Our society holds a unique position among the organizations of the school. We believe it is accomplishing
a work of the highest importance and one which has hitherto been neglected. We propose to extend the work
in the near future along the same or closely related lines. .
The Societas Innominata is not desirous of making original contributions to the theory of evolution, and
engages in no search for missing links. It covets for its members a sympathetic attitude toward all rational
attempts to explain natural phenomena An abiding sense of the prevalence of the eternal iron laws is the goal
We wish to attain. And having obtained it we shall have a hrm foundation for our further building. Thereon
we may hope to rear a philosophy of life which will enable us to meet the "slings and arrows of outrageous
fortune" as calmly as a river meets the sea. A

ax, K I T the close of the Yale-Princeton football game this year, Mark Twain is reported to have
53' f 1 ' said, "This beats croquet, there's more 'go' to it." And Mark, as usual, was correct.
More than that, he hinted at the claim of football, the go-went-gone element, the slap-
bank-smash feature which appeals to every person of the motor type. The "go" of the
game is what makes people love it. So it is not surprising that the boys of the Normal

..-XX X -, rf'!f D
Only two weeks' time was available for practice before the irst game with the De Kalb High School team.
After Roosevelt had finished his talk on the strenuous life, the two teams lined up on the campus. Neither side
scored during the first half, although the ball was in the Normal's territory most of the time. In the second
half Normal scored on a thirty-yard end run made by Givens, but the goal was missed. A little later Normal
lost the ball on a fumble, and soon the High School scored, making the score 5 to 5.
The second game of the season was played October 16, the enemy of this engagement being that gallant
band of patriots, Company A. Almost before the game had started Company A made a touchdown. This
touchdown gave the soldiers confidence g it also gave our team ginger, sand and grit-things that are superior to
confidence. As a result, the Normal team began galloping across the soldiers' goal line, nor did they stop until
they had scored 23 points against their opponents. In the gathering darkness Company A made a second touch-
down, but they could do nothing so long as our boys could see which man had the ball. The strength and size
of the soldiers made them favorites before the game g still it must be chronicled here, that the Normal boys were
out that day for scalps. The score stood 23 to I2 in favor of the Normal team.
Our ambition for larger game was fully satisfied on October 26. On that date the East Aurora High School
team gave us a lesson which proved very profitable in its way. Normal secured the ball on the kick-off and
returned it to the twenty-five-yard line. Aurora's ends were well protected and, therefore, close mass-plays had
to be used. We had another defeat. Elgin Athletic Association administered it to us on November 2. The
Elgin team was far too heavy, outweighing us at least twelve pounds to the man. The result now seems dreadful
to contemplate. The halves were extremely short, but Elgin, when not caring for her cripples, improved her
time galloping across our goal line three times. We didn't reciprocate-not even once, as we should have done
for variety's sake. We do not wish " to cry over spilt milk," nor to boast, but in all candor we wish to assert
that the Elgin Athletic Association can't do it again.
The last game of the season was played on Thanksgiving day at the Sandwich Fair Grounds against the
Sandwich High School team. The game was called at 3 o'clock, and Normal had to kick off against the wind.
Nevertheless our fellows held Sandwich from downs the nrst time, forcing them to kick. This kick was short
and Sandwich recovered the ball. Held for downs a second time, Sandwich again punted. Keith caught and
ran back the punt to Sandwicl1's twenty-Eve-yard line. Then began a series of center tackle and short end plays
which netted from three to seven yards each, and which speedily forced the ball over Sandwich's hitherto un-
crossed goal line. Kays kicked an easy goal.
On Sandwich's kick-off Keith caught the ball, but was downed in his tracks on Normal's twenty-ive-yard
line. Again the short end plays were used, Givens carrying the ball. Eighty-live yards is a long distance to
carry a ball, but this is what Normal did. A second time our fellows piled up behind that sacred goal line, mak-
ing the score I2 to o.
In the second half Sandwich put in some new players. Normal's goal was never in danger during the game,
but Sandwich did hold us for downs once in the second half. Normal decided to make another touchdown.
Starting with the ball on Sandwich's thirty-yard line, the backs proceeded to hurdle in H116 shape. It was some-
thing new and called forth applause from the crowd, even though each play meant a good gain for Normal. The
final score was I7 to o. .

cent an experience to be quite forgotten, the girls of the Normal School take long, lin-
gering walks under the blue sky of the out-of-doors. But when November storms and
cold come these same girls begin systematic training in athletics in the gymnasium. An
organization known as the Girls' Athletic Association was effected November 14th. Four
sections of work were organized in addition to the Basket Ball Section, which was formed
last year. The plan of the organization was to have each section elect a member to rep-
resent it in a board of control, and this board was to have, in addition to these representa-
tives of the student body, the members of the faculty who were appointed to take charge
of the work in the gymnasium. The organization was purely voluntary, and the fact that one hundred and
twelve girls became members proves that Normal girls are not behind their college sisters in a hearty interest in
Two sections in the Emerson Physical Culture and the Columbian rhythmical movements meet every Tues-
day with Miss Hoaglin, and two sections in free gymnastics and club swinging meet with Miss Rice on Thursday.
The Association decided that music would add to the pleasure of the exercise and rented a piano for the winter
months. Much of the so-called athletic work done in gymnasiums is SfVdZ'7ZZ.7Zg of muscle rather than z'mz'7zz'1zg
of muscle, and ultimately does more harm than good. But the purpose of the work done by this association is
to train the will, strengthen the muscles and nerves, and develop grace, suppleness and poise. The first point
of attack is the poor standing position and the ungraceful carriage The larger purpose of the work is to put the
young women in possession of a system of exercises that will not only insure them health, but will make them
promulgators of the doctrine of health and enable t-hem to wage a vigorous war against the common deformities
-crooked spines, sunken chests, and weak shoulders.

. NTEREST in basket ball has been well sustained this year, and indeed the game has grown in
.I favor among us in a very decided way. We realize now that last year we did not truly know the
Ay' game. It required a contest with some outside team to make us see this, and our hrst meeting
6 with the I. S. N. U. team served this most salubrious purpose, if it did nothing else. In this
- ., game our boys were clearly outplayed. Such quick passing of the ball and such good team work
as our adversaries showed were a surprise to us. But the lesson was not lost upon us, and if the
I. S. N. U. boys gave us a surprise here we believe they were about equally taken back by our improved playing
in the return game. It is true we did not win, but our boys were not outplayed at any point, and we believe that
we would have won the game had it lasted a few minutes longer.
The first two home games were played by girls' teams, the " Yellow " and the " White." The " Yellow"
consisted of Misses Phillips, Spence, Garrity, Watson and Smith, the " White," Misses Baker, EW
Phalen, Lyons, Crosby and Gagin. The score was 7 to 6 in favor of the " White." ,gf
. . . A
The boys' inter-society games were very closely contested. The first resulted in a score of 16
to I3 in favor of the Gliddensg the second, 5 to 8 in favor of the Ellwoodsg and the third, 9 to
IO in favor of the Gliddens. Thus the Glidden team won two of the three games, and counting
points, they won 3I to Ellwood's 30. The players for the Glidden Society were Kays, Givens, M
Hipple, Poust, Quick and Lucas, Givens being captain, and for the Ellwood Society, 4 '
Wiltse, Phillips, Mofet, Greenough, Ragland, Lloyd and Hansen, with Wiltse as captain. ,
These games were well played, with few fouls on either side. They were exciting enough Ja'a1gi.fQii,'Zf..3Zil'TR m"i'd'
for the most exacting, and society spirit ran high among the spectators as well as the players.
The girls have played but one inter-society game, and that was easily won by the Gliddens-this evidently being
a Glidden year. The score was 4 to 14. Misses Baker, Crosby, Phillips, Smith and Gagin upheld the purple,
9 while Misses Spence, Lyons, Phalen, Nilson and Watson were wearers of the green.
Next came the two games with the I. S. N. U., the most important of the season.
fr? The first was at DeKalb, February 9. In it our boys went gallantly down to the tune of
QNX, W 7 to Io. The second was at Normal, February 16, where the tune was nearly the same,
1 3 to I5 both in the minor key In the first game our players were lined up as follows:

long since outgrown all such superstitions as belonging to the
In the second the line-up was like this: Goal throwers, Wiltse, Kaysg center,
Mofetg guards, Givens, Hippleg substitute, Phillips.
We feel that our prospects for a strong boys' team next year are very
good. Nearly all the old players will be back and there are some others
already in school who give good promise to shine in the game another season.
The coaches, Keith, Charles and Switzer, have worked hard with the team, but
they are ready to work harder. The important thing is that training for the
game shall begin promptly and vigorously at the close of the football season.
The Oak Park girls came here April 6, and went home in sorrow. To be
beaten is bad enough, but 9 to 1! Even the victory they won the next week
in the return game only partly made up for it, since the score was 6 to 3.
Anyway, we haven't heard anything about playing the " rubber."
The Brst Wheaton game was played in that classic town, and our girls
gracefully yielded up the game like ladies-as they were expected to do by
Wheaton, but not without '
the honors of war, since
they captured four points T
to Wheaton's eight. But
the day of reckoning for
Wheaton came all too
swiftly! April 19th they
played the return game.
This time they made the
four and our girls made the
eight, and then they piled
five more on top of it just
for luck! Wheaton may be-
lieve that thirteen is an un-
lucky number, but we have
childhood of the race. The girls who played in these games -W
are Misses Baker, Watson, Smith, Spence, Phillips and Gagin. GLIDDEN c
Counting points on these four games, it will be
seen that our team has scored QQ points to the
adversaries' 19, a showing of which the girls
need not be ashamed and of which the school
may well be proud.
We have indeed enjoyed our basket ball this
year. We feel that we have accomplished much
by our games, for they have been good ones and
well worth seeing. The players both in the boys'
and girls' team have acquired considerable skill
and agility and have thus made the game so
interesting that the students have turned out
well at all the games. As a consequence, much
school spirit has been engendered. Some of the
games played in the evening were especially fine
ones for the interest, spirit and skill manifested.
We are justly proud of our last game, the one
with Wheaton College. To an expectant and
:gm ' ' ' A' A . fffff-els.. 4
excited audience of some four hundred our girls showed a
good, lively, scientihc game, and all felt it was a good wind-
up for the season's work in basket ball.
If the teams have done someqline, systematic work this
year, it is not all due to the faithful practicing nor to the
ability of the players themselves, but it is due in a consider-
able degree to the earnest, helpful coaching and managing
given by Profs. Charles, Keith and Switzer. The teams are
indeed grateful to these instructors for their time and interest.
Again the teams wish to thank the students for the courteous
way in which they have treated all visiting teams. Such a
spirit of civility and politeness speaks well for the school, and
we have been very happy in our games with other schools.
Then all hail to basket ball! We know its true worth, may
it meet with as great success next year!

HE baseball season of IQOI has witnessed a very considerable improvement in the quality of
the game as played upon our campus. A very commendable beginning was made last
year, the record being three victories and three defeats, againts strong teams.
Last year's policy has been continued, formidable opponents' and possible defeats being
preferred to weakling antagonists and inglorious victories. To this end two games were
arranged with Wheaton College, which had already learned a lesson or two from our girls
in basket ball. No arrangements were made with Steinman College, of Dixon, which,
apparently smarting from the ten runs scored against them last spring, failed to file an ap-
plication for further trouble this year.
The opening game was played as usual, with the DeKalb High School, and resulted, as
usual, in a score of scores for each side, with the balance, as usual, in favor, of the High School. Wheaton
College invaded our territory April 27, a rather early date for so hard a game, but no other time could be ar-
ranged. For six innings the contest was a pretty one, with the score at four to four. In the seventh came
trouble, eight runs strong, and the game was won Cby Wheatonj, but there was much ground for encouragement.
Another High School catastrophe, with tallies galore on either side, furnished the third event of the season.
Then, over the hills from Sycamore, dangling High School scalps from their belts, came the Crescents, fully
confident that new trophies awaited them on "Glidden Field " The mighty Thiele delivered his most sinuous
curves with all the speed at his command, but Normal bats were waiting to meet them. Poust pitched well for
five innings, when Capt. Kays was given his first trial in the box, making a very successful debut. In a most
spectacular finish, involving a home run by Hansen, a two-bagger by Kays, and a single by Poust, the game was
won in the last of the ninth, the score standing 1 1 to Io. Since this game, both Poust and Kays have been used
in the box each game, and the plan has worked very well.
M. D. Wells 81: Co. were the next victims. The return game at Wheaton was played May 11, on a newly
plowed field and in a blinding dust storm, which impartially filled the eyes and besmirched the features of both
players and spectators. Judging simply from appearances, it was a case of "dirty ball," but our boys good na-
turedly accepted the small end of the score, as they had hardly expected to win.
The last game played, to date, is worth recording, since the victory over the High School, in the third game
of the series, marks a break in the hoodoo which has hitherto attended us i11 these games. It is the first Nor-
mal-High School game that we have won, and the first in which the score was low CII to 95. D. K. H. S. has
succumbed to Sycamore twice and to N. I. S. N. S. once, and Sycamore has succumbed to N. I. S. N. S. If we
win the next two games scheduled with these two teams, the honors "in these parts" are clearly ours, if we lose,
- but even now the printer is calling for our copy. A
The base ball season of IQOI will be remembered with pleasure by the boys on the team. The attendance at
the games has not been what it ought to be, but the players have been faithful, they have stolen all the time they
could appropriate from the busy life of the Normal student, and have devoted it to practice and to a jolt in the
"little red wagon."

IU' ehgf H S THE NORTHER goes to press, great preparations are under way for our track meet with the East
Aurora High School, which takes place june 8 on our athletic held. For some weeks the boys
1 ' :
dai iii, 19
ci. have been faithfully training under the direction of Mr. Switzer. While the entries for the event
ll-3 J J are not settled at this writing, something can, perhaps, be foretold as to the probable placing of
the men. The 'L sprints H will be hotly contested events, Givens, Kays, Lucas and Poust working
i for them. In the quarter-mile run are Lucas, Poust, Reichardt and Givens, in the half-mile,
Greenough, Reichardt, Miller and W'iltseg in the mile, Greenough, Miller and Wiltse. The pole vault is
very uncertain, for Frederick, Givens and Kays are very evenly matched and at a height, too, that will make it
necessary for the Aurora boys to " hump themselves " to reach it. In the broad jumps it probably lies between
Frederick and Lucas to uphold the honor of the N. I. S. N. S. The men who are training for the " weights "
are Madden, Porcheur, Phillips, Kays and Givens.
What the outcome of this meet with the East Aurora High School will be, no one can foretell. We think
the prospects are exceedingly bright, for our boys possess at least one very necessary characteristic for success in
this line-I mean genuine grit. Certain it is, if they are defeated they will die hard.
The meet of last year with the M. D. Wells was one of victory for us. Unfortunately the oliicial record was
lost and only the names of the winners could be given in the record below. Givens took first place in six events
-a phenomenal record. This year he has very Httingly been chosen as captain of the team.

a pedantic old schoolmaster, who knew little beyond his craft-a grand old pagan, who
loved learning with a love surpassing the other loves of men-and who was a "guid
friend to many a puir laddief' If our final eulogy be such as this, no philosopher or
man of science can deny our title to immortality.
And one gets to wondering sometimes if that old spirit of reverence for learning is
really dead. This is a commercial age and most things are measured by the touchstone
of utility. A great university is a body corporate with wide political interests. To spend time and money get-
ting an education is simply making a good investment, much as one would invest in reliable stock. Genius is
estimated by its industrial value and its light is forever dimmed by the dull glitter of gold. Perhaps it is well
that Domsie passed away before this present day. The poor old man would have been sorely grieved at many
things we hardly notice. A great university was to him as sacred as the cross that stood on Calvary's hill,
education was a glorious opportunity to commune with the great minds of the past 3 genius was the ire that long
ago was brought from heaven to cheer the sons of earth. This regard for learning was a high attribute of
Domsie. It was part of the atmosphere of his life and brought great fruitage of loving service to the world.
The spirit of this old scholar is not to be had for the asking and no man has gold enough to buy it. If it
comes not through patient, tireless effort, he will doubtless go to his long home without it. A man may store
his mind with all the past has snatched from time and still not approach the ideal. It is not merely that he
know, he must have paid the price and realized, through self-sacrifice and labor, the kinship of the universe.
He must long for truth and hail her coming as the weary watchers of the night hail the first faint sign of dawn.
He must have labored for her and won by long, hard years of work something that he can call his own. So will
he come to realize what truth has meant to ages past. So will he know that all the lore of life is fragrant with
the deeds that men have done for love of knowledge. A
These pioneers of learning wear no glittering insignia of their rank. They have small share in the plaudits
which the world gives to its favorites. To work patiently in the face of doubt and derision, to live a life apart
from that of other men, to die before his work has been recognized-this is often the fate of him who seeks to
advance the frontier of knowledge. And considering the past, it is small wond er that the number of real scholars
has been and continues to be comparatively small. Gilileo and Bruno sleep with their fathers and the rack and
the stake are memories only. But the world has a fiercer fire than that born of fagots, a greater agony than that
of shattered bone and quivering muscle. He who fearlessly brings to the bar of
Reason one tithe of the sacred Past will soon realize that the days of martyrdom
are not over. But a reward comes, though it be tardy, and sometime his name
will be inscribed on the walls of the temples of learning and in the hearts of the
people. Even greater reward than this will be the tender reverence of those
who come after him. Some student, with grave, clear eyes, will gaze down the
long vista of the past. There he will see the dark and toilsome way by
which this scholar came. Each crag and stone will speak of victories won.
And the student's heart will go out in love and gratitude to him and to all others
who have loved learning.
But now another question greets us. What would this spirit mean to the
future? What would it mean to this glum old world that bears its weight of sin
and Woe so silently and only in rare moments cries out against the anguish of
its lot? Grandest and best of all, it would mean that our old idea of reward
would be gone forever. In all our labor we would see a better, nobler end and
object. At last we would know the fallacy of such terms as failure and success.
The stigma of defeat would tarnish no more the fair fame of those who fall in
life's great battle. Poverty would be as logical and consistent as wealth, and
the aching shame that poverty entails would bring no more proud, tender hearts
low in the dust of time.
We are glad to know that there are still those among us, in widely different
walks of life, who, to a great extent, realize our ideal. But the task ef perpetu-
ating this spirit of loyalty to learning must forever remain with those who teach
and those who preach, whether with tongue or pen. To these the weary world
will at all times look for succor. If they fulfill their mission they will have a
place in that long list of heroes who have changed gloom to glory. And who
could long for better comrades? Great, tender souls who bear, with brave and -
loyal hands the torch of Reason and count not the cost. And now to us there comes this grand possibility of
effort. It is for us alone, no other can do our work. It is our high privilege to take this torch of Reason with
reverent, faithful hands and hold it high, that light may conquer darkness still. W. R. MOFET.

CALL this an in-door day, partly because I have not ventured from the house and, mainly,
J because if the clay has not been spent in-doors it should have been. That is, unless a boyish
j spirit of winter fun or, possibly, business cares should call one forth. Surely, if the mood is
cj 3 an in-door one, the elements have conspired to augment it. Heavy, dry snow, cold and crisp,
G all day long 5 an imperfect attempt of Boreas and his wintry colleagues to rival that most per-
' fect of in-door days, a rainy day in April.
On such occasions my mind assumes a distinctly in-door mood-reminiscent, meditative
forecasting, summing up the significance of the past and tl1e present, and trying to apply them to the future.
When the body is confined within the house, the mind likewise remains within its inner chambers, leaving all
aggressive thinking for a more propitious time. I wander from room to room, read a fragment from some book,
then sort a few almost forgotten papers, stir the fire, then copy some old notes into more permanent form, con-
stantly running across some piece of work that long ago appealed to be done, but which was answered only with
postponement. How prone we are to postpone, delay and procrastinate-at least the editorial we! And it takes
an in-door day to prick our conscience in the matter.
We get better acquainted with sister, father, brother, mother, on such a day. The canary bird and the cat
learn to know us better, every nook and cranny of the house becomes a better friend from the forced companion-
ship and fellow-feeling of an in-door day.
We realize from observation the genius of a good honsekecper, who must know the details of a thousand
and one professions- We sympathize somewhat with her and feel assured of innate goodness creeping over us as
we clumsily sweep the morning's accumulation from the kitchen floor, or by watching the steak while mother
runs down cellar, thus assist in preparing the noon-time meal.
Such days, often frowned upon, should be welcomed with appropriate exercises. A truly in-door day comes
but seldom, and when one arrives we should make the most of it. Then, if ever, do we become acquainted with
ourselves-with the recesses of the home and of the mind. f
All hail the in-door day !
El 1Robin's Song
0 Q IS the early dusk of a mild April evening. Yonder a robin chirps his evening song as he hops
Q 66 -0 from limb to limb in an old apple tree. A light breeze bears upon its breath the odor of earth
newly upturned, of smoke from smouldering bonfires in the distance, and of fresh grass spring-
- . ing up from its winter thraldom.
An ordinary evening-beautiful, to be sure-but like thousands of other evenings. Ah,
those other evenings! What a host of memories are awakened by the thoughts of other eve-
nings, of other days g days when themes and note-books weighed heavily upon us 5 days when the urchins in the
Practice School demonstrated the doctrine of original sin 5 yet, withal, days of joy and gladness, for
" Each morning saw some task begun,
, Each evening saw it close.
Something attempted, something done,
Had earned a night's repose."
Now robin's friends have joined him in a grand symphony -surely they will burst their little throats-and
melody, variations and accompaniment swell to a sweet Crescendo. As real music always makes us think, so
this happy song brings to mind the pleasant things in days gone by. Once more are lived over the rambles
about the campus, the excursions along
the Kishwaukee, the tramps through
the woods in search of hepaticas, the
early morning calls on our feathered
neighbors in the t'Addition," the ex-
citement of contest time, our interest
in the N0rz'her7z l!!z'n0z's and in the soci-
eties and kindred organizations, and
again are heard the fatherly admoni-
tions from the auditorium platform.
What a source of inspiration to
our daily round of labor were all these !
And now dark days are brightened and rough places smoothed by the memory of those days. The past can
never return, but from it radiates a light so illumining the life within that with the poet we can say truly,
" My mind to me a kingdom is.'l
But darkness is fast settling upon the earth. The robins' chorus has become a drowsy twitter. They chirp
a sleepy " goodnight ! " and all is silent.

deal of inward gratincation that many of them bid fair to succeed.
TRANGE things happen and exist in these days and times of ours. But about the strang
est fact to me is, that as common an affair as a normal school is in Illinois, it has never yet
been accurately defined, nor has its function been correctly stated. The writer, therefore
proposes to win for himself a lasting reputation by succeeding wherein all others have failed
In the first place, as to the definition, a normal school is a slow process of consumption
which works both ways. The way of it is this: A varied quantity of .text books is oifered
you which you proceed to consume or swallow as john did in Revelations. If you succeed
the taste is very sweet until examination time comes, and then -. If you do not suc
"' ceed, you in turn are consumed with withering flames of sarcasm.
T The normal school in its fundamental idea is religious even as the Bible- The good
i book saith, "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest
The normal school saith, "Come unto me all ye that labor and I will make you labor
harder than ever. I will increase the burden upon your backs and multiply your woes an
hundred foldf' I have heard it said that if one ever succeeds in getting through such a
school and maintains his health in the meantime, he will never afterwards die, which is in
the strictest accordance with the promise, "Whosoever endureth unto the end for him there
is laid up a crown of everlasting life." The explanation whereof is this: if you endure
unto the end it is simply because you possess such an iron constitution that you could not
die if you had to. And when old earth is tired of you here she will not trouble you with
the formality of death, but will send you up to heaven in a flaming chariot of ire drawn
by eight normal school professors, who likewise will be enveloped in iiames. Then will be
your sweet compensation as you laugh at their sufferings and mock at their torments
The function of the normal school is said to be two-fold, namely: to make teachers of
the men and wives of the women. As to the success of the former, I am sure I cannot say
authentically. As far as my own personal experience goes, I have a distinct knowledge of
at least one man who has been converted into a teacher by a normal school. As to the lat
ter function the result is decidedly more pronounced. From that portion of the scripture
which reads, "Wives, subject yourselves unto your husbands," I take it that the only re
quirement of a wife is subjection to her husband. This doctrine is inculcated into the
women in the normal school from the beginning to the end. She becomes so subject to
subjection that if a chipmunk should walk up and whistle at her she would begin to sub
In conclusion, my best wish for the normal boys is that they will each and every one
succeed in securing for themselves one of these women as wives, and I notice with a great
HESE are the prairies beautiful, between
The mountains of thezeast and of the west,
A thought of God wrought out in wondrous green
Through glacial centuries of vast unrest.
The sunlight of the morning rests on them,
The sunset opens wide its golden gates,
The stars shine in the arching diadem,
And Ceres in her meadow kingdom waits.
These are the lields where waves the wind-swept wht ll
As wild and willed as to :L legended lyreg
Green-bound by hedges where in eoverts sweet
The tawny lily lifts her cup of fire.
Here are the bearded rye, the barley gold,
The drooping oat in many toil-sown seas,
The tasseled corn who stands a princess bold
And swings her silken scepter in the breeze.
These are the orchards of tl1e mellow peach,
The luscious pear, the cherries coral-red,
Where grapes are purple to the eager reach,
Alld apples hang abundant overhead.
Here are the " Baldwins " and the " Pippins " dear,
The Red june beauties in the freighted trees,
The Harvest glories in their yellow cheer,
The Russet apples of Hesperides.
These are the woods where Spring is fair to see,
VVhere first the Crocus shares its chests of gold,
NVhere blows the wind-blown, frail anemone,
And the hepatica, so loved of old,
Here are the violets of dew and light,
The wine-red trillium, the prairie-star,
The lone mash marigold with Calyx bright,
The climbing clematis by pasture bar.
These were the haunts of men within the Past,
VVho came like shadows on a Hre-lit wall,
They reared the mounds that still the years outlast
They came and lived and vanished-that is all.
Their beacon Hres were lit upon the hills,
To answer one anotheqi' through the nightg
The embers smoldered, and the darkness stills
The record of their glory and their might.
These were the hunting grounds of vanquished men,
The children of a half-forgotten race.
Once loud the war-whoop sounded hereward when
They rode to war or'.roamed in hunt or chase.
Here on the waters bright and still and blue'
Was wakened far the music of their oar,
As in the fairy-fashioned birch canoe,
They sought the landing on a farther shore.
This, yea, and more, the aged pioneer
VVho looks within the distance comes to see.
He sights the antlers of the startled deer
That bounded in its blitheness, lithe and free,
Here were the cabins, and beside the door
The four-o'clocks and honeysuckles sweet,
Here were the prairie schooners creeping o'er
The westward path of Progress' restless feet.
The yellow roses burst in perfumed gold,
The coreopsis blows in sunny cheer,
The lemon lily stands by borders old,
A fairy Midan daughter wandered here.
The rock nasturtiums, dizzy with delight,
Are all afire within the molten air.
The golden-rod looks on forever bright
Upon the summer prairie everywhere.
VVithin the south the golden sun hangs low,
The winter settles o'er the prairie white,
Then stars shine out as Star in years ago,
XVhen Bethlehem and all the world was bright.
The Christmas fires go roaring in their glee,
The Christmas candles twinkle, gleam and shine,
Down litten aisles the lights Hash merrily,
And gold of sky and hearth and aisle are thine.
The newer tides of commerce hereward sweep,
The steam-strong boat is 011 the waters far,
The lands are belted while the engines keep
Their nerveless line where toil and traffic are:
The lightning bears our messages of thought,
Our voices cross the far abyss of air,
Assured, for us what hath not God yet wrought
To make the prairies more divinely fair!
Afar and limitless and lone and still
Across the far-off seas we send our herds,
To far-off, waiting lands we lend our grain,
To far-off bonded aisles we teach the words
We learn and live upon the open plain:
Man is thy brother-man through all the earth,
Beauty and Truth and Good, the upward quest,
Manhood, the inner mead and might of worth,
Xvorship, the guerdon and the grail of rest
In wide expanse they bide the centuries.
O'er them the winds are whist on bluff and hi l
VVith whispered songs and unsung prophecies
The prairies beautiful, where Eden-wise
The Lord God walks within the cool of day,
And questioning, Where art thou, we arise
And go to meet Him down the open way. jwmnie Adglla Ha7l5e7Z
Class of 1900
A presence went out from my life and I was alone. I was lonely, :md my eyes Iilled with tears. I was not
sad, but frou1 some depth within me there welled up an ocean of sweet memory, of aspiration and of universal
sympathy,-and as the silent voices spoke to me, a little spray from that ocean of pathos came to my eyes as
tears. I went out and looked at the stars, the sentiuels of heaven watching through the lonely night and my
loneliness became transformed into a sym-pathos with them as they watched over sleeping Nature. And I asked
that I might join them in their guardianship over a care-worn world, that my poor life might be made pure, and
that by some light of radiant deeds I, too, might aid in driving back the darker shades of night and add some bit
of blessing to mankind. .
Pitter, patter! Pitter, patter! Hear the little raindrops on the roof. How vividly they bring back that night,
long past and gone now, when our little Gem left us-our rough diamond. That sweet, contented, quiet smile
which lighted up his pale little face as he looked up so wistfully into mine and said, "Sister, I wish you would
come, too"-oh! it haunts me yet. You did not know him. You cannot understand. He was so frank, so
boyish, so lovable in every way. Why did he have to go?
He caught a fever, and owing to his delicate frame there soon was nothing left for me of my little Gem. The
rain was falling softly on the tin roof outside, the shadows flickered to and fro on the walls, and I sang the songs
my little Gem liked best,--songs with stories and pictures in them. He lay there with his big blue eyes fixed
on my face. And I sang on and on, though my heart was breaking. At last the pretty eyes closed softly and I
sang softer and softer till the sound died away in a mournful echo. The room was quiet. Nothing but the soft
patter of the rain drops outside could be heard. I looked at my little Gem. What had happened? What made
that change? Why did llly heart beat so fast and then stand still in terror? I bent over him and called softly, "Gem I
oh Gem, look up!" But it was useless, oh, so useless! The tired little heart had ceased to beat. Gem was dead.

QUIET, peaceful homestead lay within
The shadows of the woods that crowned the hills
On either side. And here there dwelt a soul
That longed for light and thought strange thoughts
The earth and air and sea g a dreamy lad,
Who gazed up at the sky and fain would reach
The end of space and solve the mystery
That lurks forever in those starry depths,
Who saw life waken in the dull, cold seed
And wondered why it was, who felt the throb
And pulse of life, but longed to find its source.
His mind was like a fledgling bird, whose wings
Were poised and quivering for that longer flight,
Whereto the voices of his dream did call.
And so one day he crossed the pleasant hills
Which every day were bathed in sunset flame,
And passed into the world beyond. And when
The robins built their nests again in spring,
And flowers were blooming in the shady woods,
He was not there. The playful squirrels heaped anew
Their hoard of nuts without a riv'1ing hand,
And swallows built their nests and thronged about
The dusty rafters undisturbed.
The land which lay beyond the range of hills
Our traveler made himself a home, and now
Those restless, eager hands with reverent touch
Are lifting one by one the crumbling leaves
Cf that vast volume which is loved of men,
And is as old as human thought. With eyes
That dim with tears he reads the first rude lines
Inscribed 011 that great day, when man first deemed
His thought of worth, and left it as a gift
To all the future sons of earth. From then
Till now, no page is incomplete. Gn each,
Une reads of some great victory for Truth.
And oftentimes a stain of blood remains
To tell more vividly than words, what man
Has paid for this, his chiefest treasure. Through
It all the same great questions run. The 'L How "
And " Why " which he desired so much to know
Have quivered on the lips of many since
Man's course began.
The last page has been read,
And eyes that once were bright and clear are tired,
And seem quite weary now, as once again
They look up at the stars. He thinks of how
He did the same in days gone by, and from
The past there comes a vision and he sees
His home so far away among the hills,
The grass and leaves and all the flowers he loved
Are dancing in the sunlight as the winds
Of summer gently pass. And all around,
From every well remembered spot, there comes,
Like incense sweet, the perfumed breath of peace.
And then imagination leads his thoughts
To that dark path whereon the sons of men
Have traveled on their weary, endless march
From long ago to now. And then in gloom and
Bitter lonliness he knelt and prayed
That he, like one of old, might sometime see
1 His heart's desire.
The field and wood were gay
With Howers, and birds were singing in the trees,
When he who left so many years ago
At last came home. The one who went was young,
But he who comes is old and gray g his brow
Is furrowed deep with thought and care. And he
Is great, men say. For this great, careless world
Is sometimes kind, and this poor country lad
Has given to the world what others use
For self alone. The " Why " and " How H are still
Without an answer g but a peaceful calm
Is on his face. He sought long years for light
VVith which, when found, to banish sin and pain,
And solve the mighty problems of the past.
He found instead a lesser light, that shines
Upon the path of man and cheers his way.
There are no solemn rites nor mysteries
In that sweet, simple art, that makes of life
A dream of perfect joy.
And now within
His home, our traveler weary with the weight
Of years and honors, rests secure. He loves
To watch the sunset o'er the hills, nor seeks
To pass beyond. He sees the stars at night
And feels no fevered longing. Smilingly,
With calm and quiet pulse, he waits to greet
The closing scenes of life, and never doubts
The wisdom of the end that comes to all

Efiifof '01 Annual:
You ask me concerning my recollections of school life during the first year of the N. I. S. N. S. It is pleasant
to have occasion to think over those days. Of the many vivid impressions, that of the growth and organization
of the school is most distinct to me. We came to find our beautiful home with many an unhnished floor, yet
what a lesson we learned as we saw the fair mosaic develop under the hands of the toiling Italians-a symbol of
the perfecting of our own lives, just begun. ,
What a spirit of unity and good will was engendered and maintained in the organization of our literary and
art societies, musical circles and athletic associations. We were made to feel that we were indeed charter members
of the great institutiong for was it not we ourselves who chose, for the coming years, the school colors, song and
yell? So our interest, love and feeling of responsibility for the school grew, yet never did it become a burden,
for in times when advice and help seemed necessary we found just what sympathy and practical aid we needed
in our faculty. And here again we found ourselves highly favored, with the student body not very large We were
enabled to come into close personal contact with our teachers, whose friendship and influence we value so highly
and shall prize through all the years for the aspirations they aroused within us. This one year will help us ever
to " stand by." Very cordially yours, JESSAMINE CRAPSER'

Ghe 1tBiological laboratory
' HAT did you say, stranger- that you would like to take a look through our biological labo-
0 ratory? Well, just step inside and I'll show you around. You see, the real head of the
department-the genuine biology man-went away this morning in search of his pct snake,
and he may not be back again until evening-that depends upon the snake-so he has left me
to be master of ceremonies until he returns. It happened in this way: Yesterday some one took
the snake out for a little recreation, and when he put it back again he forgot to put the cover
atm, on the box, and so has caused all this annoyance. I have never been able to understand why
people cannot put the covers on things when they take them off.
And now, just a word of caution before we proceed any further: Keep your lingers off things. If you 'rind
a kernel of corn growing between two panes of glass, or a miniature field of oats grovting under a glass jar, let
them alone. NVe have no end of trouble every year with visitors who come here and, thinking to help us,
rearrange things to suit themselves. And now, if you are ready, we will proceed. Do you see that row of bottles
by the window? Well, the students in this institution do not eat lunches any more. They put them into those
bottles, sprinkle a little pepsin and other things over them and then go away. The pepsin and the other things
do the work and the students have the extra time to finish their tablets. But here are the frogs. We have them
with us at all times of the year. Other animals, such as the cray-fish and the salamander, come and go, but the
frog is always here. We manage it in this way. When the time comes for the frogs to get sleepy and to retire,
we preserve a few to last us until they wake up again. Do we use sugar in preserving them, did you say? Oh
no, we don't use sugar in preserving things any more. We
use a new substance called formalose. It's more fragrant and
not nearly so sticky. I know you are wondering why so many
things in here are standing on their heads. Well, I'll tell you
why. This is the season of the year for making experiments in
geotropism. W'e turn things upside down and the pull of
the earth straightens them out again.
But here comes the real biology man and I must be going.
He will show you the birds, the turtles and all the other won-
derful things. But before I go there are a few words I would
like to say to you by way of advice. If ever you come here as
a student and have work to do in this laboratory, provide your-
self beforehand with a pair of eye-glasses, and then when you
come begin to count. Count everything-the plates on the
turtle, the toes on the tadpole, the scales on the iish-every-
thing. Go into higher mathematics, if necessary. We often
deal with infinitesimals here, and you might also need to recall
your knowledge of the transcendentalism of pie. Next, label everything you have countedg and lastly, keep up
your nature notes, and always have your tablet ready to hand in on time.

INIARCH 2, IQOI'WCDt to Glidden Society meeting to-night with Miss Katherine O. The weather was bad, but
she didr1't seem to mind that. Had au idea that she was very matter-of-fact, but she's good company. Guess
I'1l try it again next week.
MARCH 9-Took Miss O. to Society to-night. My opinion of her improves. She's a delightful girl.
MARCH I6-Really, I seem to be quite a star. Had my picture taken this morning with the other members of
the J. F. F. Society. I went to the informal Heart and Mitten Party at the Hurt Club to-night. It was a
proposal affair and I proposed to six or seven girls. Miss O. gave me a " heart." Hope she meant it.
MARCH 2o-The term closes to-morrow and then hurrah for Damascus! I wish I had made arrangements to
stay here a day later and then I could have traveled part of the way with "Bess', and ','Nan."
APRIL I-WHS pretty well awake to-day. Was fooled only nine times.
APRIL 2-GOI into DeKalb this afternoon. Had a jolly time to-night. In the midst of it we had our pictures
taken by flashlight. I know I looked crazy, but then I had on Bess' hat.
APRIL I3-Saw the game at Oak Park last night. Went into the city this morning. Bought a necktie for my
cousin, and a box of cracker-jack for "Nan," Saw Miss B., but I guess I'1l not mention that in DeKalb.
Enjoyed the concert to-night with "Bess" On the whole it has been quite an eventful day.
APRIL 22-A111 quite provoked. While strolling along the Kishwaukee this afternoon, I found that "Bess"
knows that I saw Miss B. in the city.
APRIL 26--Dead broke. Couldn't go to the concert, but she went anyway. So I went serenading with the
:APRIL 27-Was on for the debate to-night, so we went. Afterward we enjoyed sodas. The night was so clear,
the moon so beautiful, that the study of the stars was delightful. I wonder if the future will prove true the
horoscopes that we read.
Ye gods, your help I pray,
A task that would dismay
A Muse of ancient day,
And bid the god of song
To sing with holy fear
The theme he does revere
Too much to desecrate.
Now this has mighty Fate
Declared with high degree
A task for lowly me.
To sing our faculty
Full well and worthily.
And so, to pay the homage due
That mystic body, I pray you
My pen to guide and make it say
just what our teachers do each day.
In here are forms quite tl1in and rare,
No bodies have they-brains to spare.
For their delight the leader, john,
A noble and a mighty one,
Tells how in other lands as found
To brains there are fair bodies bound
And thus enthralled to lowly ground
This doctrine, too, adown the hall,
Another John, as names befall,
Expounds to Junior youths and dames,
Whose language must be that of james.
Across the hall a few steps take,
And here Miss Hoaglin sits in state.
She tells the wondrous sound of A
As varied as an April day,
And what a nian called Hamlet said,
And how in vain poor Portia plead.
And here Miss Rice, wish magic wand,
just touches sky and earth and pond.
Lo! all their secrets they disclose
There nothing is but what she knows.
Miss Potter now with lovely grace,
With eye aflame, aglow her face,
Explains the thought which Grecian mind
Long since did treasure for mankind.
Across the hall and to your right
Miss Patten says, with smile so bright,
" It surely must be one of three,
Now is it der or das or die? "
Miss Stratford as the Greeks of old
Drew living forms from marble cold.
So she, on paper blank and white,
Draws scenes and forms so like to life
That strangers have been known to pluck
Real daisies from her pictured nook.
Desceud the stairs, and to your right
Sits Page enthroned like ancient knight.
He calls before him with a word
The heroes slain by shot or sword,
And lo! he bids each one confess
His noble deeds or wickedness.
Across the hall, on northern side,
Where squares and circles do abide
Miss Parmelee with smile of cheer,
Makes puzzling problems seem so clear
That Euclid we no longer fear,
But love and serve him and revere.
Here Parson tells that mystic lay
That fairy-tale of modern day,
How 'tis that fractions are so queer,
A fact that many love to hear,
And why they stand upon their heads
As do the bees in flower beds, g
Wheii nectar sweet, with rare delight,
They seek while crawling out of sight.
And now in room with curving bow,
All Nature's children here do grow,
Rare beasts and plants do here abound,
And snakes, too, without fail, are found.
CLet no feline her soft foot trace
Upon the threshold of this place.D
The ruling spirit, Charles, you see,
So full of life and energy.
Still farther from the setting sun
Your footsteps bend-your task near done.
Here, where the floor is gleaming white,
And where the walls are dazzling bright
A Switzer, like a seer of old,
Draws forth the secrets long untold
By molecule or atom bold.
Fridays, in number twenty-nine,
Where Seniors meet to work and pine,
They learn from Gilbert wisdom's rules,
And how to manage longed-for schools.
And here, where books are stored away
Like "savings for a rainy day,"
Miss Warwick, with a smiling face,
Looks up each record, Ends each place.
Meanwhile the critics 'mong the grades
Flit to and fro like phantom shades.
The babes are Mrs. McMurry's care,
Mr. Hatch guards those who climb the stair
Miss Donohue those who dwell on high
And look below with kindly eye.
And Dr. McMurry guides and cheers
From early morn till sunset nears.

The Annual of 1902 is just out. It is a
souvenir of great literary and artistic
value and the school may be justly proud
of it. It faithfully portrays "what we
do" and shows the fun, labor and results
of school life. I11 merit it surpasses
tl1e Norfhfrr of IQYI, which is the highest
praise that can be given it.
june I5 was a memorable day in the
history of the N. I. S. N. S. At the east
entrance to the building a statue of
"Dr.l' Shoop was unveiled with appropri-
ate ceremonies. On the same day tl1e
famous painting, "Our Guardian Angels,"
was unveiled in the President's reception
room. For these works of art we are in-
debted to Misses Hoaglin and Stratford,
who have acted upon the advice of the
juniors of IQOI. The school greatly ap-
preciates the generosity of these ladies.
Our campus will hardly be recognized
by the Alumni, A landscape gardner,
with a force of two hundred skilled work-
men, has made it "a thing of beauty and a
joy forever." Beautiful driveways, lakes,
flower beds and fountains make it an
earthly paradise. Concrete walks have
replaced the treacherous planks and a
bridge of artistic workmanship spans tl1e
Kishwaukee. The authorities acted wisely
in allowing the works of nature to remain.
How could the hand of man improve our
phoebe singing among their branches? In
the spring the graceful willows will still
adorn our tributary and the bees will flit
from catkin to catkin. Again the black-
birds will build their nests among the
rushes on the banks of the lake.
Eva Grace Lee has recently been ap-
pointed Captain of tl1e Salvation Army at
Richard De Young, the great American
tenor, is making a tour of Europe. The
success of his entertainments is in part
due to his beautiful and fascinating ac-
companist, Miss Mae Foster.
This is from the Sterling Standard:
"The leading actors in the famous Buffalo
Bill show, which exhibited here last even-
ing, were former students of a near-by
college, Givens, the great athlete, and
Bennett, the clown. It is rumored that
Bennett is the owner of a large ranch and
when not with the show rides bronchos in
the far west. "
The following have paid their tuition at
the Normal and have entered upon more
lucrative occupations : Helen MacMillan,
snake charmer, Lou Baker, bicycle per-
former, Edith Watson, tight-rope walker,
Roy Poust, bell ringer for restaurant,
Birdie Ferris, country music teacher,
Nellie Myers, missionary, Rose Hatch,
hospital nurse, L. NV. Ragland, stump
speaker, Eugene Phillips, traveling tooth
extractor, Helen Hamm, matron of a club.

The class of 1902 has with the consent
of Dr. Cook, dispensed with tl1e usual six
class day speakers and will enjoy an ad-

X ' W HOULD you ask me why this
X! ' Why this long neglect you've suffered,
ff I should answer, I should tell you,
' 1' ' All the woes and trials and sorrows,
All the great and deep misfortunes
I have suffered and have grieved oier
Since I left you, dearest diary,
Slnce I last conhded in you.
I should tell you of my grinding,
Of my frantic, fiendish grinding,
O'er my Rosenkranz so dreary,
O'er that book so full of wisdom,
How I toiled and crammed and struggled
How my brain grew worse confuddled,
How I searched the pages over,
Seeking for a glimpse of sunlight,
Seeking for a ray of sunshine
That would show me paths to wisdom,
That would show to me the meaning
Of the language Rosy uses,
Of the thoughts that he is fond of,
Of his noble words of wisdom.
Should you ask me how it ended,
How my frantic grinding helped me,
I should answer, I should tell you
Of my failure dire and dismal,
Of my anguish deep and dreadful
When I saw the Dr.'s pencil
Putting down a line-I liked not-
In the record book that lay there,
In the book the Dr. tells us
Has come down through countless ages-
I should tell you, too, of troubles
Such as many have not dreamed of,
Of the woes and trials
With a line of learned critics
Sitting by and scribbling fiercely,
While the children sat serenely,
Sat serenely and said nothing,
Spoke not when you called upon them,
Knew not when you asked a question.
I could tell you other troubles,
Gther sorrows I have suffered
Since I saw you, dearest diary,
Since I last conided in you.
I could tell you how the Dr.
Gave us golden words of wisdom,
Gave us words that were not golden
When we failed to heed his warning.
I could tell you how we trembled,
Trembled and forgot our lessons,
Vifhen the telephone bell jingled,
VVhen it called for some poor mortal,
Some poor, foolish, moonstruck mortal,
Who for some strange, unkown reason
Had been walking after seven.
I could tell you more of sorrows,
But I will not, dearest diary,
For 'twould set your tears to flowing
And your heart to grieving for us.
Fearing lest I leave you gloomy,
Lest I've filled your heart with mourning,
Let me whisper, let me tell you,
That our life is not all sorrow,
That our souls are sometimes gladdened
VVith the light and life and laughter
Such as Normal life is full of,
Such as club life has in plenty.
Now the hour of rest approacheth, V
Now my brain imploreth slumber,
So I'll leave you, dearest diary,
Leave you for another fortnight,
Leave you till my heart o'erfloweth,
Just to pour out to some comrade
All my fun and joy and gladness,
All my woe, despair and sorrow.

i'5lig'jgi:Qg'2fg-," HIS steamer Wieland lay at anchor in the great commercial port of Hamburg. It was a beautiful
SERS day in early autumn. The mid-day sun casts his cheering rays on the little sailboats, darting to
and fro, and kisses the tips of the masts on the grand old ships, lying in the breeze, gently rock-
ing themselves to sleep on the bosom of the water. Far toward the east stretches the beech
' C Wood, the leaves tinted with the hues of autumn, and the sunlight playing hide-and-seek among
,Eggs the wood-covered hills for which Germany is so celebrated.
For an observer the harbor scene is perhaps one of the most interesting spectacles. All con-
ditions of life are here represented, from the aristocrat down to the organ grinder and street beggar. Here the
dusky follower of Mohammed and the sons of the celestial empire stand side by side. The sturdy Teuton and the
light hearted Celt forget their ancient feuds and exchange greetings of good fellowship. Yonder to the right and
left lie magnihcent merchantrnen, displaying their colors. To the careless observer this may have no signin-
cance, but the thoughtful mind reads in the Hag the symbols and principles of the nation. In the Union Jack,
the Stars and Stripes, and the Tricolor of France, floating in the breeze, we behold the history of the people.
The crafts, laden with merchandise, resting in the harbor, suggest to us the industry and ingenuity of the
nations which they represent. We think of the world as a great workshop, the means of exchange regulated by
international laws, which only civilization and Christianity make possible.
But "time and tide wait for no man." Our meditations are suddenly interrupted by the roaring of the
steampipe. The passengers have collected near the shore. The crowd increases every moment. The steampipe
roars again and the bell rings. At this signal there is fervent hand-shaking and numerous benedictions, then a
rush for the gangway, a second and a third bell. A few distracted passengers reach the deck less than a minute
before the gangway is withdrawn. The last robe is cast off, hats and handlcerchiefs wave, the final adieu is said,
and the vessel steams out of the harbor. SENA NELSON.

Q A SATIRE J
Oh, Venus, come not hither,
His face was calmebut after that
A change took place, and it portrayed
A look of pain and paled a shade,
While both the ladies at his right
Displayed to all a sense of frightg
But soon their fright gave way to mirth
For where had they, on all this earth,
Beheld a teacher fret and glare
Because some burs were on his chair?
'Twould be of no avail,
For to the wicked shafts of love
We wear a coat of mail.
Thrice armed are we, great goddess,
Against Love's flame divine,
For long ago in silent bliss
We worshiped at her shrine.
For know you, mighty goddess,
That 'mong the fairest pearls
That ever starred earth's diadem
We count on Normal girls,
And the fullness of their joy
Will scorn the storied beauties
Of Egypt or of Troy.
But still we sigh in silence
And ask for no return,
For well we know Love cannot live
Where Reason's torches burn.
They cannot serve thee, Venus,
'Twould be a foolish dream,
For high and holy in their hearts
Minerva reigns supreme.
1-ff?7 T was a cold, dark night. Outside the wind howled dismally. It wailed down the chimney
fe, k like some lost waif seeking the warmth of the fireside within. The shaded lamp left the room
j O in a luxurious light and the corners in shadow. Before the fireplace sat Irene in a little wicker
chair, with a screen placed near to ward off the intense heat. She was thinking, thinking
G intensely, of a sad, touchingstory she had heard that day about a little girl, only twelve years
" old, whose father had died the day before, leaving his little daughter alone in this great, wide
world, homeless, penniless, parentless. His last words to her before he closed his tired eyes
in death were, " Somewhere in this great, wide world God will ind a home for my darlingf'
"Somewhere ! " All day the words had been ringing in Irenels ears. As she sat there in her beautiful,
luxurious home with everything heart could wish for, she began to think, as many an older head has done, that
somehow this world was very unevenly balanced. She thought and thought. Suddenly her face brightened.
jumping up, she ran quickly out of the room and up the broad stairway. Bursting in upon her father in his
study, she began in an incoherent way to tell the whole story. H? and oh papa! couldn't we do something?"
"VVhy, my dear child, what could we do?" asked that surprised man. And therewith Irene proceeded to relate
the scheme she had concocted by the fireside. " She could come and live here and learn to help Mrs. Ray and
go to school with Elsie and-why, do lots of things. Do say she can come, papa," pleaded Irene. " Well,
well-h'm! well-a-I don't know child-I don't know. It seems such a wild scheme.. But I don't knowf'
said the poor, bewildered man.
"Oh papa, just think if it were me now l " " Dear, dear, if it were you? Why, what put that into your
head? It couldn't be you, you know." She put it in such hard light that he could scarcely refuse, and - well,
why should he refuse, why should he, to be sure? f'Why, I don't see why we couldn't do it, Irene. She
wouldn't be in our way, and it would be a real charity, " and he began to enter into the wild scheme as enthusi-
astically as Irene.
Next day a pretty little basket carriage drove up in front of poor, honest Mrs. Murphy's door, where
Marian, the little orphan, had been staying. In the interview which followed little Marian was made to under-
stand that she was to go and live in a pretty rural home, and go to school. And motherly Mrs. Murphy, with
many a tear, called down all the " blissin's " of the saints upon the good " gintlemin " and his pretty daughter.
And so the little orphan found a happy home safe from the buffets of the cold-hearted world. God had
found a home for the dying rnanis darling.
HERE's a belted bee in the orchid's cup,
He's taking his tithe from his tenantry,
And never a care in the world knows he,
Wise bee I
He peeps from the blossom, gilded o'er '
With precious dust of the stamens' store,
And never a thought in the world has he
Of the errand he's on for his tenantry.
But the golden dust of the stamens' store
He leaves at each orchid's open door.
A part of the flowers' plan is he,
As he takes his tithes of his tenantry.
We children of men, we come and go,
At somebody's hest,-how should we know
Being only the children of men,-
Whence we come or whither we go?
But to some one of us, now and again,
A vision may come in the sunshine. Then
He shall see himself as a part of a Plan,
He has helped in the weaving since Life began
The shuttle is hidden, he knows not where,
But he shall know the shuttle is there,
Moved by some unseen, immanent Hand,-
He shall seek no more, but understand.
And the cares all die that Pride gave birth,
He turns with a large thought to earth.
The vision hath had its ministry,
And he smiles to himself as he sees the bee,-
The velvet bee in the orchid's cup
Taking his tithe of his tenantry,
While never a care in the world knows he,

O rippling Kishwaukee, we love
all thy ways,
And gladly we'll offer our tribute
of praiseg -
For since that glad day when we
first heard thy song,
Our hearts like the Waters have
To meet the great ocean whose
' mighty unrest
Has stirred in our pulses and beat
in our breast.
Flow on, gentle streamlet, as years
come and go,
Decked now in green verdure and
now clad in snow.
Thy praise will be chanted in
measures more sweet,
And others stray 'round thee with
But when time shall claim thee
and put thee to rest
Thou'lt know in thy heart that
the old love was best.
And tho' thy old lovers far distant
In memory they'll hear thee and
share in thy glee.
In memory they'll see thee and
feel a sweet thrill,
XVhen sunlight is dancing on
woodland and rill.
'Mid fragrance of wild flowers and
birds' morning calls
Thou Howest in beauty 'round
Learning's grey halls.

L1-ZITCH-From your intimations I should
judge that your heart is elsewhere than in
your teaching. Do not, for the good of
the young idea, continue this. Such ques-
tions as these you will have to decide for
THE YOUNGSTER-Your friend appears over-
attentive to you. Tell Mr. Spier that your
time is li111ited and that you cannot pos-
sibly write oftener than twice a week. I
think he will be considerate.
ABBIE JEAN-Your heart matters, I should
judge, are seriously mixed. Your acquaint-
ia' ance with a young man before you con-
sider yourself engaged should extend at
least a year. Do not put too much faith in the promises of
young 111en attending school, for they often say rash things
under the influence of moonlight.
IJLIVETTE-X7Ol11' letter has caused me very serious thought, but
I have come to the conclusion that it will be proper for you
to accept Mr. P.'s company.
M01-'ET-You are most sensible. For one whose health is in so
precarious a condition a walk to Tenth street daily is excel-
lent. It will reduce your flesh and you will appear taller.
M. L. G--On no occasion should you walk with a young 1na11
who is blowing smoke in your face, no matter if you like the
smell of cigar smoke. It is not proper.
CARPENTER-XvOl.l1' case appears very plain. You did perfectly
right i11 persuading Ted, as you call him, not to go to the
" CHEESE HOUSE GIRLS"-Your adviser, as Dr. Cook said, is
the best authority. You say they are town boys, YVell, they
may be all right. I'm no authority, Do as Dr. Cook says.
DAILEY-NO, I would not try to make up between them. If
anything, go with her yourself.
ATKINSON-SOII16tl'1lIlg about your letter convinces me that
you are stylish already. From what you say of yourself I
think your appearance would be greatly improved if you wore

The circum- .1-,

which you write are perfectly
amusing. I should advise you either
to go to breakfast early or lock your
door on returning, in the future.
M. GIL.-You say you are trying to overcome it. That is the
best plan if it hurts his feelings. Anyway, sarcasm is out of
place at the table.
C. l,lf3.xH--By no means use dye on your hair. Il' you wish to
kccp it light wash it with soda or sprinkle it with talcuni.
MI1,LiiR-'l'liat's right, The scarccr the smiles the greater they
are appreciated. IJon't smile only on rare occasions.

LEW S.-Public opinion decides such things, and it is gener-
ally agreed that you are handsome.
TEDDY-I would not advise your getting a corduroy suit for
ELSIE F.-As to the size of the gentlemen with whom you
ought to appear in public, it is a momentous question. I
have come to the conclusion that you will not attract so much
attention if you go with a man of your own size. Picture
yourself with Rev. Murra.
PAUL-I should suggest that you do your hair up on kids. Do
it up the night before and it will stay better.
NIAUDIE-I cannot furnish the desired recipe for your complex-
ion, but the Grammar Grade teachers say they have collected
the chalk dust from the board and applied it with great ben-
ELIZABETH L.-Your green jacket will cut nicely into an Eton
for the spring. By way of suggestion, it might be Wise to put
in a Battenburg yolk and velvet sleeves. But by no means
use purple velvet.
MINNIE P.-Those wrinkles you say you have in your forehead
may be easily removed. We do not handle the massage, but
our agent, Mr. Greenough, will send you some.

without hesitation that you - - f

LENVIS WASHINGTON R.-No, I do not think it adds any force
to your speech to point your index finger at the audience.
GEO. S. G.-Yes, it is the proper thing to make a date at least
twenty-four hours ahead. You cannot expect your lady friend
to accept on five minutes' notice, for she may have other plans.
POLLY-If you had explained your case more fully, I could have
answered your anxious letter more satisfactorilyg but I think
from the facts of the case, that it would be better for you,-
being engaged as you say,-not to encourage the attentions of
young men while you are away at school. It sometimes leads
to serious consequences. You had better consult your mother
on that point.
El fllbionight 1Reflection
He smiled at me at the game to-night, Can he ever know how I played to win
At the game of basket ball, From the others just for him?
And waved his kerchief, yellow and white, o Can he know that now I feel repaid
And he took me to the ball. By that one sweet glance from him?
And he waltzed with me at every chance,
And we sat out' the two-steps--three,
He's gone away to his barren room-
Has he now a thought for me?
He sent no roses, but what care I P
They are here in my face, I see
Oh, tell-tale roses, did you tell him P
And does he care for me?
Senior Glass Song
Who aloft thy arches raise,
Normal dear, this campus crowning,
With glad hearts thy beauty owning,
" VVe will sing thy boundless praisef'
Fare thee well, fare thee well, fare thee well,
thou Normal dear,
Fare thee well, fare thee well, thou Normal dear.
We have been most happy here,
In our work kindly directed,
Faults of head and heart corrected,
" Truth and right to us made clear
Now we seek our homes once more
Leave thy halls in peace reposing,
For, for us the year is closing,
Still we'll sing as heretofore.

-Xgd, 123529 f OR many years I lived very happily in a large forest with my brothers and sisters. We loved the
Niifx -154' beautiful Howers at our feet and the birds that gave grand concerts in our branches. You cannot
imagine how lonely I felt when one day I was cut down, robbed of all my beautiful branches, and
transformed into a post. For a long time I lay alone and neglected, but one day a man came and
took me away with him. I was again filled with hope, curiosity and expectancy. I soon found
myself on the campus with a brilliant light upon my head. Since then I have been very happy.
Merry troops of children hurry by me every day on their way to school. As the Normal students
go by I hear many things, in fact, I can almost tell what the proceedings are at the Normal school. I know when
it is examination day, when there is to be a ball game, who the " cutest girl in town " is, when one of the young
ladies has changed one of her shoes and forgotten to change the other, and many other strange things. I love to hear
the enlightened talk of the Seniors and then I laugh to myself when I think how the Juniors will roast them class
night. I even know what takes place at faculty meeting, for every Tuesday night I hear many able discussions.
In the midst of such beautiful surroundingsand among so many kind friends I am very happy and contented.
I trust that I may fulfil my mission by keeping my face bright to direct the pilgrims in the right path as they
wend their way to the shrine, even though there be dark and threatening clouds above, and narrow, slippery
walks below. --pigvv STELLA HENNINGS.
. Kolb by the llbiano
My friends are all very talented-there isn't one who doesn't possess remarkable musical ability. They come
to see me every night. One whom they call Edna usually comes first-a pensive maiden, she who always plays
hymns. I do not know why, they say she is a minister's daughter, perhaps that has something to do with it.
While she is playing, the rest come up. There is always a clamor for Bertha and May, you all know them.
When they are absolutely worn out, Rene comes to the rescue. Rene always sings " Sweet Bunch of Daisies."
But her performance is an Egyptian mystery to me. Why can't we ever keep together on " Darling, I Love
You?" And why do they all laugh so? It is very strange.
Next I hear, " Jessica, play your piece now," and I am always glad, for jessica plays sweet, dreamy waltzes
and then they all dance. It is a pretty sight, and I am happy then. Joe plays for them to dance, too. Joe
knows several pieces, but she knows " Dorothy " best. Mr. Lloyd's piece is " I'll be all Smiles Tonight, Love."
Brother Lloyd pretends that he dislikes it and is very reluctant about singing it, but I will tell you as a secret
that he is really very fond of it-if you don't believe me, just hear him sing it once. Every night I hear "Come
on, Dick, we're ready for 'Ben Hur' now." Then I begin to brace myself and to shrink up into my corner, for
when Dick comes, he comes with one of his kangaroo leaps from the opposite side of the room to the piano stool,
and it isn't always on the stool alone that he lands. But he doesn't mean to hurt me, I know-it is just a way
he has. So I grind out " Ben Hur " for him cheerfully. Chas. and Julia are about upon an equality. So far as
either vocal or instrumental music is concerned, their ability is unsurpassed. The one thing which we appreciate
in them above all is, that they are always ready and willing to perform. Then there is-but here comes May,
which means that I must get down to business. MAE FOSTER.
N the banks of calm lil5llNY2llllit'lf
Looms the " eity on the hill,"
And a story I will tell you,
If you'll listen and be still.
On a bright December morning,
In the year of nineteen one,
Somethinghappened that might scare you
Though it ended just in fun.
To the attic on that morning
Shoop and Powell both did go
To perform a certain duty-
XYhat it was I do not know.
Now they brought a great long ladder,
To the ceiling it was raised,
And the men did upward clamber,
Not a moment were they dazed.
Through the cubby-hole they hurried,
Cares and troubles all have fled,
XVork is done, now down they've started,
Shoop, all smiling, goes ahead.
Through the opening he's swinging,
An d is reaching for the round,
But his feet upset the ladder,
And 'tis fallen to the ground.
Dreadful sight he 11ow presented,
Oh, the trouble now in store!
In the air he hangs suspended,
Far from ceiling to the floor.
" Ilelpl oh llelpl " the ery resolllnlefl
'llhrongh the building, l':n' :ind nt-ar,
And the ealni and peaceful inmates
Suddenly are struck with fear.
" Help! oh help! " again it sounded,
Striking terror, oh so dire,
And the frightened childrenfstuflents
This time understood it,f1'c'.'
There was tumult in the Normal,
As the inmates rushed about,
Snatehing hats and books and papers,
Struggling wildly to get out.
Not one moment did they falter
Till they're safe outside the door,
Then with every eye uplifted
Watch they for the angry roar.
But the peaceful Normal mansion
Towers upward to the skies,
Not one trace of burning building
Comes before their frightened eyes.
As they stand there upward gazing,
Each is ordered to his seat,
And our janitor is busy,
For he's now upon his feet.
He is sadder now and wiser,
And he never more will tire
As he warns folks to be cautious
Ere they break and run forfire.

call me coach, and ye do well to call him coach who for two years has met with you
upon the gridiron every shape of team the broad expanse of Northern Illinois could
furnish, and who never yet gave anyone the "straight arm." If there be any who can
say that ever in scrimmage or in play around end my actions did belie my tongue, let
him stand forth and say it. If there be six of all your team dare face me in psychology
or football tactics let them come on. And yet I was not always thus,-a professor of
pedagogy and a trainer of pigskin kickers. My ancestors came from the Empire State
and settled among the corntlelds of Egypt. My early life ran quietly as the brooks by
which I sported, and when at noon I gathered the sheep beneath the shade, and made
fiddles out of cornstalks, there was a friend, the son of a deacon, to join me in the pastime.
One evening after the chores were done and we were seated beneath the morning glories, which shaded our
home, my grandsire, an old man, was telling of Yale and Harvard, and how from year to year a team from each
of these colleges met to settle the question of supremacy on the gridiron. I did not then know what football
was, but my combativeness grew, I know not why, and I clasped the knees of that venerable man until my mother
bade me go to rest and think no more of those savage contests.
But that very night I resolved to go to Harvard. Several seasons later, while playing in a game, I met upon
the gridiron an opponent whom I knocked out in the first kick-off. When I removed his nose-guard, behold ! he
was my friend, the deaconls son. He knew me, smiled faintly, and gasped for " time out," the same smile upon
his lips that I had marked when, in adventurous boyhood, we scaled our neighbor's fence to pluck the first ripe
apples and bear them away in boyish triumph. I told tl1e referee that this fellow had been a friend of mine,
true and generous, and I begged that he withdraw from the game and a substitute take his place. The umpire
finally forced back the crowd and sternly said : " Play ball."
And so, fellow gladiators, must you and so must I continue to buck the line. O, Harvard ! Harvard ! thou
hast been a tender nurse to me. Thou hast given to that gentle, timid minister's lad, who never knew a harsher
tone than a Iew's-harp, muscles of iron and a heart of Hint g taught him to make tandem plays on tackle, masses
on center, revolving wedges right and left, quarter-back passes, and criss-crosses galore.
Ye stand like giants as ye are. The strength of brass is in your toughened sinewsg but next fall some
college or athletic association, breathing out challenges, will attempt to mar your fair record by sending false
reports to the Chicago dailies. Hark I hear ye yon Dixon College roaring in his den I 'Tis six months since he
defeated a would-be N. I. S. N. S. football team 3 but next fall ye shall break your fast upon him-and a dainty
meal for you he will make !
If ye are basswood, stand on the gridiron like ten pins and let your opponents buck your line for fifteen
yards. If ye are men, follow your interference. Strike down yon guard, gain the ball and do bloody work as
you did at Sandwich. Is the spirit of victory dead within you? Are the colors of the N. I. S. N. S. ever to trail
in the mud? Fellows, we must defend the honor of our noble institution. If some must be vanquished, let them
be our opponents. THE SNAPPER BACK.

our FOR CUBA
, I N the absence of a museum in the school many of the students have called upon the library to
IFA QT serve them in that capacity, if we may judge by the nature of the questions which come to it
1 Q almost daily. In all libraries odd mistakes and blunders are frequent, and often very amusing,
though the librarian must never show by a single look that anything unusual has been asked.
She should be as wise as a sphinx in order to know what is wanted when a " cantaloup " of the
library is requested, or when a small boy asks for "The Dream of Sir John Longfellow, by
Lowell "5 another for Shakespearefs Tale," or " If You Get It Keep It," when the book
desired is "To Have and To Hold." She must be a living encyclopedia to answer i
such questions as z " Who wrote 'A Heated Mode of Motion ?' " " Where can I find a
picture of an Indian sitting in a doorway ? " " Do bees make honey to eat it? " "Are
there any encyclopedias in the library Pa' " What book will help me on our debate:
'Resolved, that the moon was full when the cow jumped over it'?" "Do more far-
mers' wives become insane than city women ? " One cannot but wonder what the aver-
age life of a librarian is I Surely, not a great many years.
But these are only some of the funny happenings, and there isno end to the seri-
ous, valuable side of the library, with its eight thousand carefully selected standard
books and periodicals. It forms a firm foundation for all the work done in the school,
and the appreciation of its worth is shown by the number of students who take advan- l .E
tage of the opportunities given them. Some were so eager for knowledge that during the winter afternoons they
stayed until it was necessary for them to go through the alcoves with a lantern, Diogenes-like. The names of
Coulter, Mead, Channing, Harte, James and many others whose books have been so eagerly sought, will not soon
be forgotten. There have been books for every need and mood, and the Haish Library might easily adapt the
following little song to its own use :
ff Are you in Sentimental lnood? But if patriotic sentiment is wanted,
yu Sigh with you 3 I've patriotic ballads cut and dried:

Many of the boys and girls in the practice school have enjoyed the work in the shop during the
past year. Much freedom has been allowed pupils in the selection of work. As a result, each pupil has
taken much interest in his work, because there has been a strong motive back of it. Those who have worked have been independ-
ent, thev have done their own thinking, they have done their own work, each has attended to his own business. Stated briefly,
the work has been along four lines. Things have been made for the shop, for the school, for their parents and other members of
the family, and for the pupils themselves. The following tools, costing less than 11215, were purchased: A rip saw, three cross-cut
Saws, two large planes, four small block planes, three try squares, a brace, several bits, a countersink, a spoke shave, an oil stone. two
chisels, three hammers, a hand ax, a pair of dividers, three knives, two gauges, a nail-set, a cold-chisel, a pair of pliers, a screw-
driver, and three bench screws for the vises. The material used has cost about 31230. The shop is a well-lighted room, 40 feet square.
When work was begun last October, there was nothing in this room but an old bench, and much rubbish. The nrst thing to do
was to clean it up. After this was done two long benches were made Of course this took considerable planning 011 the part of the
boys to get them of the right height and to make them strong. Then a cupboard was made for the tools, and shelves for the work.
The boys found that it was not convenient sawing boards with-
out saw-horses, so saw horses were made. A well seasoned
apple limb furnished two good mallets The boys concluded,
that a workshop was 11ot complete without a nail-box. Two
The following articles were made for the school: Pointers,
a small box for Dr. Cool-:'s desk, Several sets of shelves, a table,
a dictionary stand, a tray for carrying apparatus from room to
room, a clock face for the fourth grade arithmetic class, a piece
of apparatus to be used in teaching the thermometer, a cord of
wood, a canal lock, a lumber camp by the creek on the campus,
picture frames, a cage for a hawk, screens to darken the win-
dows in order to use the stereopticon, a wheel for the squirrels,
a bulletin board for Dr. McMurry, Several things for Mr.
Charles' workin biology, corner shelves, and Several pieces of
apparatus have been mended.
Pupils have made, for themselves allfl their homes, tables,
knife and fork boxes, a bread box, a frame for plants to climb
upon, rabbit traps, bent-rim work, tooth-brush holders, pen
racks, tool chests, a case for type, and sleds.
Che llbrimarig Eepartment
S in all the other departments of our Training School, the chief aim in the Primary School is
to minister to thefeli wanfs of the children. A keen desire to know the facts which are to
be presented will insure their assimilation and lessen the waste in education. Our desire
tofeed hzuzgzjf children controls largely the selection of the material and the method of
presenting the lessons. In the first three grades good classical stories are told to the chil-
dren, which they are led to reproduce in good language. In the first grade selections are
my QM, made from fairy tales, fables, and jane Andrews' "Seven Little Sistersf' In the second
ify grade, f'Robinson Crusoe" and 'fHiawatha', are studied. In the third grade Greek Myths,
the Story of Siegfried, and Norse Legends are presented. In all the grades biographies
of Lincoln, Washington, some of the poets, and a few of the painters are given. The children become some-
what acquainted also with the Pilgrim fathers and the pioneers of our country. In Nature Study the children
become familiar with the birds, flowers, trees, and butterflies which are common in DeKalb. They study their
habits especially. Many questions arise, which they answer later from their own observations, e. g.: In what
ways does the robin move about when upon the ground? In the air? What birds sing or call upon the wing?
What does each of the varieties of birds studied eat? Where and how does each get its food? Where does
each build its nest? Of what is the nest of each made? How made ?. Of the plants the children discover by
their own observation, answers to such questions as the following : Where do the plants grow? How do they
appear when first coming up? When do they flower? What is the color, size and shape of the flower? How
does each plant protect its buds? What kind of seed vessel has each? How are the seeds scattered? The
children watch the development of the buds of the trees until their fruit is ripened, sown, and seedlings raised.
They learn by the observation of caterpillars, chrysalides, butterflies and eggs, the stages in the life of these insects-
The Beginning Reading is taught through games which the children play by following, at first, spoken
directions. Later the written direction is substituted for the oral. So far as possible interesting literature,
which is really worth the expense of the child's time and energy, is chosen for reading material.
The writing and spelling are taught as the child feels the need of expressing himself in writing, e. g., the
picture which he makes of a hoop looks like the picture of a moon. To distinguish it from the moon he labels it
hoop. Each day one child has an opportunity to be leader of his class. The teacher has been in the habit of
giving, in writing, directions, such as stand, sz'!, marfk. The child wishes to do the same, so he sets about learn-
ing to write them with a will. Later he wishes to record the questions which he is to answer from observation.
The children will also write letters to children in the other schools telling them of a day in the woods, a snow-
storm, or other interesting experiences. They will also write to children in other climates, telling them of some
of the products of their clime. The Drawing and Modeling are largely connected with the Literature and Nature
Study, basing them on the former, the children represent what they have imaged as the story was told to them,
basing them on the latter, the pupils draw or model the bird, twig, flower, etc., as nearly as possible as they see it.

The special problem which we have been endeavoring to solve this year is that of self-gov-
ernment. Knowledge is important for the child, but there is something vastly more important. The power to
wrestle with and decide the little questions of his every-day life, the power to grapple with the conflicts of life
as he meets them, the power to take hold of and exercise control over himself-this is the power, the gaining of
which is the problem before the child. How to help him gain it is the problem before the teacher. Knowledge-
getting, as we ordinarily think of it, is simply a means toward this end to be gained by the pupil. There are a
thousand little things in his every-day life which, if recognized and properly handled by the teacher, are the
stepping stones to the acquiring of this power by our boy or girl. We do the pupil a great wrong when we
exercise too close supervision over him. He must have opportunity to test himself. If he is constantly con-
trolled by the teacher he certainly grows weak along this line. Let the boy do something for himself. As well
might we expect a child to grow physically strong who is constantly carried by the nurse as to expect a boy or
girl to grow morally strong who is constantly guarded by the watchful eye of the teacher. If we would ,treat our
boys and girls more as young men and young women-treat them with the same courtesy and respect that we
would their fathers and mothers, were they here, we should, I am confident, be rewarded by the growth in them
of the spirit we so long to see developed. It is the hold he gets of himself, and not the hold we get of him, that
strengthens his character.

we are asleep, then we are alike in that we are all good. NVe try hard to be good when we are
awake, but We find this no easy thing to do at all times. You know one is influenced in so
many different ways by his surroundings that it is nearly impossible for him to be at all times
what he would like to be. I I
Did you ever hear about the time we thought the building was on tire? It makes us laugh
11oW when we think of it, but then many of the girls cried. It happened
in this way: Mr. Powell, the engineer, had climbed into the tower through
a trap-door in the ceiling of one of the ante-rooms of the east Society Hall
to put in some electric light wires. Mr. Shoop, our watchful janitor, was
anxious to see that everything was done properly. He climbed to the top
of a tall step-ladder to watch the work as it progressed. While in this
position he tried to adjust the ladder with his feet. In doing so it fell
over, leaving him suspended from the trap-door by his hands. He would
not let Mr. Powell pull him up. He was afraid to drop to the floor. There
was nothing for him to do but to cry for help. This he did. We took his cry
for help to be a cry of fire. Mr. Cornell, who was teaching in Room 28,
quietly QD announced to those in the library that the building was on fire.
When this announcement was given we all ran for our lives. Several of us ,
were sure that we saw smoke coming out of the windows. We finally
learned what was the matter and went back to our rooms. VVe hope that
next time we may have better control of ourselves.
What do we do? We do about the same
as other boys and girls of our age do. We go
on Held trips to study plants and animals. We
watch the clouds, the wind, and the weather.
We study the soil beneath our feet. We try ex-
periments. Sometimes we go to the shop to
work out our ideas. We take part in critique
lessons. We sing, read, write, spell, solve prob-
lems in arithmetic, study geography and history,
and write compositions about what we have
studied. In the autumn we play football, and in the spring we get out on the diamond
and show people that we know something about the game of baseball. In short, all
people may not be aware of the fact, but the fact remains, however, that we are an important part of the prac-
tice school. Did you ever stop to think what the practice school would be without us?
' UNTER DEN LINDEN.
STUDYING THE CRAB-APPLE TREE.
YOU may be surprised to see a space devoted to this depart-
ment, since it is not a custom of annuals. That alone is suhicient
reason for our action, for we are not bound by custom and do not
wish to remain in the ruts of others. But there is a much better
reason,-we have something we want to say.

THIS school year has S6611 a great advance in the devel-
opment of school spirit, which is the greatest charm of our
Normal. It pervades the entire school from the tiny tot in the
practice school to the renowned Senior whose memories of the
N. I. S. N. S. will ever be fond ones. It is this spirit that has
made us long to reach our ideal, and by steady, faithful work is
leading us onward to attain it. Have we not always heeded the
watchword, " Stand By? " This firm loyalty to our trust has
bee11 instilled into our hearts until it has become a part of our
very being. Not only has its influence for good helped us, but
it is felt by every one with whom we come in contact. Our lives
will be fuller and richer, while the world will be made brighter
and better because of our work here. When we look back-to the
opening of this school and see the forward stride it has taken,
we are led to exclaim, " Normal, thy name is progress! Bright
is the future that lies before you."
Oh co11tinne, seat of learning,
In the work thou hast begun,
Greater laurels still be earning,
Till thy Master says, " Well done X"

FOR the artistic appearance of this book we'are 1I1LlCll in-
debted to our artists. All the work has been done by our own
students, who, though hard pressed by arduous school duties,
gladly did what they could to make this volume attractive. lVe
wish to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to all, but
especially to Jessie M. Dunning, who designed the coverg to
Hattie Hugett, Elizabeth Patten, Stella jordan, Mrs. Philbrook,
Lillian Wagner, Ethel Reiterman, Emma Anderson and Ethel
Brainard. , 4 3,
THE Senior Class, at a class meeting, May 23, extended a
special vote of thanks to Fred L. Charles, business manager of
the NORTHER. Whatever of merit there may be in this work is
due in no small degree to his able management and his valued
advice and assistance. For a school of about two hundred stu-
dents to publish this annual, costing not far from one thousand
dollars, required unusual skill and careful management on the
part of thelbusiness manager. Though a member of the faculty
and having important personal interests, he gladly gave us much
of his tlllle and energy, with no other reward than that of the
gratitude and highest appreciation of the Class of 1901.

THE interest manifested in the NORTHER by the faculty, the
students and all our friends has been unusual, and has made
our efforts to produce a literary and artistic souvenir real
pleasures. XVe thank the students for their liberal financial
support, and we are proud of the record that not one of them
refused to do what he could to assist us all in other ways. Special
acknowledgment is due Mr. Switzer, who took many of the
photographs, to Miss Stratford for her timely criticism of our
art work, to Mr. Fay, editor of the De Kalb Review, who
kindly loaned us photographs and cuts from his valuable col-
lections, and to Mr. Rowley, to whom we are indebted for the
artistic arrangement of some of our pages of views. A 3

As we look over this year of 1991, one of its prominent
features is its athletics. Last year we thought the spirit shown
was admirable, but this year it has been far surpassed. As soon
as school opened, active preparations were made for football.
The old players, combined with the new ones, made that grid-
iron of ours a spot that a few, at least, will long remember.
The Thanksgiving victory put the boys in a thanksgiving mood
as they tenderly laid aside their leather head gear and padded
trousers and prepared to convert their football energy into
basketball. The " gym." became the bone of contention as
each team strove to get in the most practice. " In the spring
a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of-l' baseball
and track meets. Taking the year as a whole we have cause
to be proud. lVhen we consider that thirty-five boys must play
football, baseball, basketball and work on the track, we can
but wonder that victory came to us as often as it did. They
have realized that in this age a school must have athletics to
keep in the front rank, and they have done their part to lay
