Now as the time of year comes 'round again
We find your picture still upon each page
Of our own book. Your waving hair, wind-blown,
Is fanned by northern breezesg yet is your face
Aglow with warmth and love. How came you here
To this fair land of ours? And were you held
Enthralled, responsive to the beauty of our towers?
Or was it the frail tendril of our vine
That stayed you until we could come and claim
You for our own? And since that day we meet
You every winter morning as we climb
The slippery wind-blown hill. Your chilling blasts
Strike roughly 'gainst our faces, yet wake up 9
The sluggish blood within us. Then arise
The thrills which make us start and race as if
Our spirits would keep pace with you.
And will it be so when our school days here
Are past and in a place yet strange to us
We take a moment from our care and steal
A precious glance at our own book? Then from
Our store of memories may you waft back
The dearest ones. And then into our hearts
Will come this thrill of life, endeavor, and
Our spirits rise and race again as they
Were wont to do in days before. 'Tis this
We owe to you, dear Norther Lady.

Centers of strength and towers of might,
That stand so tall in the dark cool night,
The stars that rest on your summit shineg
The arms of the ivy about you entwineg
And forever about you our fancy weaves
Thoughts that cling like the ivy leaves.
For we, as we gaze on your rugged strength,
That stretches so far in its shadow length,
Have measured our love to the top of your towers
And the reach of our joy by your dial with its hours.

We lingered each day on the bright autumn campus,
Reluctant to give up such colorings rare-
'The mingling of reds, rufous, golden, and yellow,
All sobered and blended through hazy blue air.
We thought, as we gazed at the meadow and woodland,
That nothing in nature with this could compare.
But early one morning we came to our campus,
And lo-was it magic displayed for us here?
A glistening whiteness had mantled each object-
The terraces, river, each tree far and near.
In the background, enhancing this Vision of whiteness,
Were the gray walls and towers, to us the most dear.
lin the New Green muah
Into the wood, evasive, steals
The spirit of the spring.
Lightly a humming heralds her coming
Where heavy the dreams still cling. 4
Soft is the rousing of buds gently drowsing,
Under the spell she doth bring.
Light she glides through the sunny air,
As free as the swallow's wing,-
Flitting and turning without thought of spurning
The smallest or humblest thing.
Gaily comes leaping from hours long with sleeping
Life at the call of the spring.
Into the Wood, evasive, steals
The spirit of the spring.
Life is pervading the lights and the shadings
That she in her bright mood fiings.
Warbling and glowing and new green a-growing
Answer her low murmuring.

Their beautiful soft, soft petals unfold in the
To the glories of the spring-tide, they add their
bright array, '
The breezes softly stirring, their fragrance waft
And the passing life seems gladder,
When our roses bloom.
They are one great mass of splendor when days
grow long and warm,
And the petals overflowing, on the grassy lawn
All hues and tones, the softest, in their velvet
And the world seems far more lovely,
When our roses bloom.
Their colors bravely greet us, after other
When autumn trees played by the winds, give
their farewell Serenade,
Still here and there a bright rose glows in its
foliage dark and green,
And though winds are chill, we're happy
Because our roses bloom.
When winter, white and frosty, has covered all
When the twigs and thorns and branches are
with glistening ice impearled,
The redness of the rose-hips stands out against
And we know that though 'tis winter

O I ,
E112 flbnlg mag
I heard two people talking ,
In the hall one day-
'Twas a certain Tuesday afternoon.
I heard one of them say:
"From my faithful student teach-ers
I must soon be going awayg
It is hard to think of leaving
But it is the only Way."
"Yes," the other said and colored
Just the faintest tinge of red,-
"Teaching isn't interesting,
When all one's thoughts have fled
To a house that's to be furnished
In a sci-en-tific Way
But she never finished,
'For the other had her say,-
"Oh, Why doesn't ev'ry teacher
Take the only Way?"

Aa S2211 frnm the Bllumhle Gbutlnnk nf the
UESDAY afternoon and faculty meeting again. From my seat
'l l , in the library I watch them come, short and tall, fat and lean.
I have chosen a good place for my watch, for the library liter-
tm 0 ally swarms with them. When the bell rings for the close of
' P the seventh hour, the usual peace and quiet of the place is
transformed into a general stir which might almost be called a
hubbub. Five minutes! and some of those teachers have the nerve to
come in for a History of Ed. book. What of the proverbial "hour-and-a-
half l" Others flock to the desk and, catching a glimpse of some book or
magazine, insist on getting it out at once. Some of them come through,
looking like moving vans with their books, their coats and hats and rub-
bers, and walking as though life depended on their "getting theref' The
scant five minutes pass and all make for "room 29," some of them look-
ing just a little uneasy. History of Education probably accounts for it.
You've Worn that look yourself. The doors close upon them and the
library settles down while the librarians take time to breathe again.
What a relief!
Look at that! Somebody-"s late. She'll catch it. Will she hear
"Stop right where you are?" But I suppose they all have framed up
excuses for use in cases of emergency.
Oh, they're opening the door, and We can hear the hum of voices.
They're laughing. Dr. Cook must be telling one of his stories. Now
they are quiet again-talking about monasticism, scholasticism or the
humanistic idea. Do they ever get "Stand please?" What if someone
has to say, "I don't know?" Fancy one of the teachers before whom
you stand and tremble saying that! What if she knows a little but is
unable to make "a sustained recitation." Then she contrasts herself
with others who have "organized the paragraph well." Now we hear Dr.
Cook's voice-he seems to be reading. It isn't so diHerent from our His-
tory of Ed. He reads along in just the same way. Do they have to
bend every nerve to keep up?
Now the voices become louder. A warm discussion must be taking
place. Tomorrow, in at least five classes, we shall hear, "As Dr. Cook
said in Faculty meeting," or "As Dr. McMurry says-I" They always say
it with a guilty little start of self-consciousness as though they were re-
vealing state secrets. What interesting discussions have gone on there.
4 -iq, li,
.M Nineteen Glhix-inn . '
Could it be possible that the sacrifice of one hair from each head ever
had to be made by them to demonstrate the "hair-splitting dialecticf' Do
they have to worry through "Special Speech Topics ?" What memories
the room must hold for them as well as for us.
The door is closed again. A Freshman, passing just as the door is
closed, sees one teacher standing, the center of interest for the whole
room. In her swift glance the Freshman takes in the whole situation
and reports it to you. "Someone has been up to something and they're
getting told on. You should have seen the way they all looked." You
remember with a guilty start that you were out after hours the other
night. Yes, it was nine-thirty when you "just had to have something
to eat" and went down town for it. When you came out of Holmes' there
was Mr. Gilbert and he didn't say a word but just gave you one look. You
could have gone through the sidewalk. After you got over your astonish-
ment, you began to think that home was the place for you and the "eats"
were untasted that night. Now it's all come out and you'll get "called."
There'll be a long dissertation in General Ex. and everybody will have to
get institutionalized all over again.
Mrs. Lund tiptoes across the hall and stands irresolutely on the thres-
hold. Then she knocks and enters. She comes out with a quick air of
duty bravely done. Behind her comes one of the faculty. He follows her
to the office. When he comes out he goes downstairs and when, "just
for curiosity" you look out of the window, you see him going toward the
bridge. You look at the clock. Nearly time for adjournment. Was he
glad that there were so few minutes left that he did not have to go back?
There is much of mystery about a faculty meeting and for this rea-
son it is fascinating. We look with wonder at those who were once as
we are and who now have come into greatness. If we dared ask
them-would they tell? Will the day ever come when we can go to a
faculty meeting and really find out what it is like?

My thought today drifts far away
O'er prairies white with snows,
My thought hath joined this wintry wind
That westward, westward blows.
And with those airs about thy feet,
That sweep and curl and play,
My heart returns to pathways sweet,
Dear home of yesterday.
The years that pass are crowding fast
To stand twixt me and thee,
And one long gone, of thy vast throng,
Forgotten soon shall be.
But thou dost crown the highest hill
That my horizon knows,
And, looking toward thee, mine is still
A love that daily grows.
Nor shall I own in song alone
That love, fair Northern Queeng
Nay, soon to me thy scenes shall be
A vision, not a dream.
For hark, faint echoes to my ears
Across that snowy tract
An all resistless message bears.
Hear them, "Come back, come back."

As we go forth from you today-
We'll oarry memories of you,
Of friendships rare, of happy hours,
As sweet with fragrance as the flowersg
Gleams to follow through the years
To strengthen hope and quiet fears.
We love your ivy covered walls,
Familiar rooms and spacious halls,
The sunset skies against whose light,
Your stately image fades at night.
The thoughts of you will with us livee-
May we your spirit truly give,
And do the deeds and live the thought
Your master dwellers in us wrought.
Your stirring life, your people true,

DeKalb, Ill., April 20 CSpeciall,-
Port Shafer swung into line today and
pitched the Norrnals to Victory over the
White Sox by a score of 8 to 1, giving'
the Normals the first game of the series.
The Normals drew nine passes from the
three pitchers trotted out by Manager
Callahan. The walks were mingled with
just enough hits to make the runs come
easy. The Normals grot nine swats, al-
though two of these were wasted in the

ninth round. In the Hfth it required
onlv one safety to manufacture three
runs. In the seventh Anderson bagged
a tally without the help of his team
mates. He hit a double to left, took
third on a passed ball and stole home.
ONLY FIVE Hrrs OFF SHAFER.
Shafer held the Sox to five singles, no
two coming in the same inning. He had
a hard time locating the pan at first and
started with three passes. After he got
his eye trained in the direction of the
pan he had the Sox at the mercy of his
crooked ones. Only twice in the re-
maining eight innings did a Sock reach
second base. Bnodie reached the key-
stone corner in the fourth on a double
but was killed off trying to steal third.
Rath reached second in the seventh on
a pass and Schalk's singles, but there
were two out and Lindeman robbed the
pinch hitter, Easterly, of a hit by a good
running catch. Weaver and Lord also
shone in defense of Port,
NORMALS SCORE IN OPENER.
The Normals sneaked a run over in
the first round. Lindeman was out
when Carl Littlejohn bagged a triple ov-
er Jones' head. Lascelles scored him
with a long Hy. Donyes singled against
Weaver's shins but was caught steal-
ing. The lead did not last long. The
Sox tied up the score while Shafer was
locating the plate. A double helped
Shafer in the second.
NORMALS GET THREE RUNS.
The NoI'mals were given three tallies
in the Hfth. Shafer and Lindeman
walked. Carl Littlejohn bunted with a
sacrifice and Lascelles scored Shafer on
a long Hy. Lindeman stole third. Lord
muH'ed Donyes' foul and Tub walked.
Donyes started a double steal and was
headed off but escaped by butting the
ball out of Baron's hands. This let
Lindeman score. Donyes' reaching sec-
ond. C. Littlejohn walked. Anderson
obtained a pass. Brashears got a scratch
hit in left, scoring Donyes and Little-
john, Anderson taking third. Bras-
hears out trying to steal.
COLLINS, DOUBLE WASTED.
From the second to the seventh only
one Sock reached first. That was Col-
lins who doubled in the fourth. In the
seventh Shafer passed Jones after one
was out. Weaver hit a Hy but Schalk
singled over second. Kuhn was sent
to bat for Walsh and slapped a Hy to
deep center, but Lindeman made a
pretty running catch of it. Benz took
the firing job and blanked the Normals
in the eighth. Rath opened with a sin-
gle but was forced at second by Lord.
Shafer caught Lord napping off first
and Collins was disposed of by Jenkins
on a foul into the stands.
The Evolution of Gossie
How many know Gossie, the popular
star of athletics, dramatics, class room,
and of the Rickard Club? Little would
anyone guess or anyone realize that he
is the same bashful, awkward, country
boy who entered Normal three years
A younger son in a large family, he
was brought up in the good old fash-
ioned way. "Early to bed and early to
rise." In fact, his people looked so
thoroughly after his welfare, that until
his pilgrimage here he had never been
more than twelve miles from his par-
ental fireside. So when Walter arrived
at the age of eighteen his parents came
to the conclusion that he should go away
to school in order that he gain a little
worldly knowledge and become a man
among men in his community. After
much debate it was decided to send him
to DeKalb, it being a mannerly school
and free from many of the temptations
often found on the path of knowledge.
Accordingly Walter packed his belong-
ings, kissed his folks goodbye and with
a brave but beating heart, started on
his journey toward DeKalb, and educa-
tion, and the world.
The first day was filled with excite-
ment and Walter forgot himself for the
time being, but, toward evening, when
the pastoral call of milking time became
strong. Walter Cwho had already ac-
quired the lasting title of "Gossie"J,
succumbed to the common malady, home-
sickness. This disease was an entirely
New one in Gossie's life and he labored
in vain fand in tearsb against a severe
For an early recovery he is indebted
to Messrs. Chapman and Kirchoff, hon-
orable room-mates, who offered to Ushow
him around," and incidentally got him
Now Gossie had never seen or heard
of chicken, it being rather a negative
quantity up his way, but if chicken was
of the world, then chicken it was for
him. Being but poorly versed in the
necessary art, it was necessary for his
friends to coach him. This they did in
their usual effective style and Gossie
immediately put his newly acquired
knowledge into operation. Now, imag-
ine, if you can, our quiet, mannerly
Gossie intercepting two entirely un-
known and unseen lowing to their enor-
mous hatsj girls and politely asking
them if he might accompany them for a
little stroll. Can you form a mental
picture? But how different from the
Gossie that calls at the Rickard Club
three times a week regularly and nightly
after the supper hour for a few moments
of quiet chat. After several futile at-
tempts to annex some 'tchickenn in
every one of which he came out much
wiser, it dawned upon him that some-
thing was amiss, that his room-mates
seemed to be having more than their
share of fun while he had none, and he
immediately forsook them and locked
himself in his room for the remainder
of the evening.
However, Gossie was not to be easily
put down. He decided that girls were
not in his line and he determined to try
his power at athletics. He announced
his intentions to Coach Wirtz, who sized
him up as some pretty good raw mater-
ial to work into winning teams. But
alas, although Gossie had broad and
massive shoulders, muscles of iron,
hardened from continual toil in the har-
vest fields, and a capacious brain capa-
ble of ciphering intricate plays, our
coach had not reckoned with his feet.
They were continually in the way, no
matter how hard their owner tried to
control them. In football they insisted
on tripping his team-mates as well as
opponents, in basket ball becoming en-
tangled with each other and hurling
their luckless owner to the Hoor, and in
standing one on the other instead of
allowing him to complete the circuit of
the bases. Little would you guess that
this was the same Gossie that now plays
at football until his skull is split in
twain and who plays with such fervor
as to endanger the Umolarsw of all who
engage in the sport, and little would you
guess that this was the same Gossie that
now romps up and down the basket ball
Hoor like a never-tiring race horse.
Not only has Gossie improved along
athletic lines but also in literary lines.
Here his ability has grown continuously
and miraculously from the time he
marches out and loudly proclaims, "Ha,
ha,, her majesty jokes," until now he
takes a leading part in all dramatics,
hell? scarcely second to the Lyon him-
Some of these changes he attributes
to the advice he has received and the
association he has kept, but mostly to
the perseverance and hard work, espe-
cially in athletics. He lays some at the
door of a certain acquaintance he has
cultivated faithfully and for several
This perseverance has not been with-
out its reward and anyone to see him
now as he proudly exhibits his "interest
in the art department" and looks the
whole world in the face, would never
recognize him as the shy country youth
who entered the institution three years
Who will be able to foretell the change
that will take place in the two years
that will elapse before he blossoms out
a full grown graduate?

The Gist and J est of It
Come gather 'round me here my friends,
If something you would hearg
Dost know that Arnold Griffin
Has to third a title clear?
Why, boys you ought to see him play,
It's wiorth a dollar bill
To see that boy stand up to bat
And knock the cover off the pill.
And when he tears around the bags
He leaves a trail of smoke,
And half the catchers in the land
On him their wings have broke.
But say, it's great to watch him field,
To see him scoop 'em up
And heave 'em o'er to Littlejohn,
Or back the others up.
Yes, boys, I guess he's got it cinched,
And now just mark my word-
If you want to see some classy ball
Just watch Griflin playing third.

A Strange Experience
Oh! sad news and heart rending tid-
ings. William is in danger of losing his
hand for the cause of his team. He was
spiked on the wrist the other evening
while playing ball and the saddest part
of it all is that one of the Normal team
men was the cruel wretch who did the
deed. When running rapidly to stop a
"grounder," William put his hand down
to scoop up the ball and the runner
stepped on Billls wrist. We sent the
data to the Chief of Police at Sibley
and he says, 'tWilliam Anderson stepped
on his own wrist thereby spiking him-
self, an experience which few big league
ball players have ever undergone. He
is to be congratulatedf, We are indebted
to the Chief for his brilliant solution
of such a puzzling mystery. As Ziggy
says, "Whoop snacks, we knew it all the
time." When you meet Bill ask to see
The XICHITS Play
All was in readiness for the big game!
The unfaltering faculty team headed by
their Chief Coach arrived at the field
early and went through a stiff signal
practice. Many were the intricate for-
mations which they had. The Philosoph-
ical Grammarian, their ardent quarter-
back, had even gone so far as to make
a trip to Europe from whence she had
returned laden with new plays. Then
there was their bucking full-back, the
Weather Man, who betook himself down
to the Illinois river. There he developed
large and hearty muscles with which to
batter the enemies' defense.
The raw recruits of the student team
soon arrived while the veterans came
trailing along almost too late to get
their names on the score card. Goals
and positions being assigned, the game
began at eight-thirty a, m.
Both teams were on their toes. The
Tall Math kicked oi and the students
carried the ball into the facultyls ter-
ritory with a rush. They, however, got
their signals mixed and in twenty-five
minutes' play were hurled back for their
"fourth down" and lined up in the Study
Hall. Their 'tpunt" was blocked and
they were "penalized" for "advancing"
in the hall during class hours. Just then
the referee blew his whistle for the first
Between halves both teams took a good
rub down and were fed "dope" consist-
ing of stuffed turkey, plum pudding and
The "second halfn started with a rush.
The Philosophical Grammarian in a line
plunge .knocked out six sturdy Fresh-
men within a monthls play. The stu-
dents soon retaliated and pulled off a
scandalous play around the north end
and held the ball on the seventy-yard
Time was now called while the teams
changed goals. When play was re-
sumed the faculty were hampered by the
illness of their Head Coach. But the
Handsome Man led the team on with a
rush and the faculty succeeded in break-
ing up several "bluffs," while many fouls
were called for unnecessary roughness.
The students were desperate. Win they
must. Several of their sweater desiring
male members donned full dress, blacked
their faces and with many harsh witti-
cisms and blood-curdling wails of un-
premeditated melody stampeded the
whole faculty. The game was won and
after the veterans of the squad had been
given their emblems both teams bade
each other a cordial good-bye and agreed
to meet again.

We're like the old woman who lived in a shoe,
have so many teachers We don't know what to dog
can't give 'em broth without any bread,
can't whip 'em soundly and put 'em to bed,
just have to stand 'em and do what they say,
Though they want us to work when we'd lots rather play.
They're a little afraid of us-we don't know why,
And when we are naughty they look like they'd cry
If they only dared to, but they never dare.
We guess 'cause they think that their critic will care.
They're a pretty good sort, though, and when they go 'way
Weill miss 'em a lot and wish that they'd stay,-
Until we get used to our new ones and then
We'll have to go over the same thing again.

To the land of Make-believe.
Whisper softly, little maiden
How you go and how you leave.
Will a twinkling fire-fly take me
To the land of Make-believe,
Or will the shining lantern wake me
Ere I reach that fairy land?
Does the brook flow through the hollow
To the land of Make-believe,
When it calls, if I should follow
Should I find the wishing tree?

Whisper softly, little maiden,

fl T'S been a long term," sighed the Genius of the Fall Term as he
walked slowly down the Mystical Road. "I hope they'll let me

Now the Mystical Road leads to the land of Strange Places where the
Genii of Terms have a wonderful palace. The Fall Term Genius walked
more and more slowly as he came near the great gates which would open
to him if he were deemed worthy.
"Well, well, brother, it is good to see you again," called the Genius of
the Spring Term 1912, who had come to meet her tall brother.
"Yes, indeed," said the Genius of the Summer Term, who was some-
what short and fat, measuring in fact only six weeks by six hundred stu-
But even as they spoke the 'Fall Term looked apprehensivelly at the
Great Genius of the First 'Fall Term, who presided over them all. The
Great Genius and his attendants marched sedately down the passage-way
from the palace to the gates.
"Is your Work completed?', thundered the Great Genius.
"It is," was the reply.
"Are you ready to make your report?"
The Great Genius looked to see if the secretaries were ready, discovered
the Spring and Summer Terms outside the gate and ordered them within
at once, and then began his questioning.
"Very good-four hundred people."
"The societies ?,'
"Excellent Big crowds every week."
"I never had a society meeting," said the Spring Term wistfully.
"The athletics ?"
"Never better. Nearly two hundred season tickets sold."
"What kind of stunt did they have to advertise the tickets?" asked the

gan to swing open. Relief was evident in the Fall Term's face and the

The Great Genius referred to his notes. "H'm-Your parties ?"
"We had the best Halilowe'en party that we ever-"
"How did you get the money for it?,' interrupted the Summer Term
"You ask too many questions," said the Fall Term severely.
"I-I just wanted to know what stunts you had," the Summer Term
"What's that? What's that?" said the Great Genius. "Oh of course
-stunts. Did you have any stunts ?"
"Oh yes," the Fall Term replied, "the Seniors played Sleeping Beauty

"Answer my question! Did you have any stunts?" The gates were
"You didn't have a single stunt this term I" accusingily.
"We did too! The basket ball girls advertised the Wheaton game. It
was a good advertisement too."
"But did they give a real stunt?" It was the Summer Term again.
"Up on the platform with the curtains down at first, and a big surprise
for everyone ?"
"Well, we had a big surprise but they didn't-well you see-or-a-a-"
Cwith an inspirationj "the choir and faculty were on the platform and of
course the girls couldn't go up!"
"Humph, that wasn't a real stunt,', mocked the Spring Term Genius in
scorn. "I never called such a thing a stunt. Didn't you have any others '?"
The Fall Term Genius had not the courage to answer the question.
The Great Genius stood with his head bent down in thought. Suddenly
the Fall Term realized that the gates were not yet closed although they
had never opened completely, and he made one more appeal. Anything
to avoid that terrible term of wandering alone!
"We didn't have stunts, but we had some girls tefll fairy stories one
morning and the choir gave a cantata, and we had a vote on the contest,
and Dr. Cook read us some good stories instead of talking about the
heads, and he let the students go to the skating rink, and the class of 1912
gave three new pictures for the library, and for a few days there was
fine skating and-"
"All those things make no difference," answered the Great Genius.
"you didn't ,have any stunts! You must pay the penalty."
There was absolute silence. The Great Genius raised his hand. The
Genii inside the gates faced toward the palace. He let his hand drop, and
the great gates fiew together with a tremendous crash. The Genius of the
Fall Term was left alone.

'Q "' amazed to see so much confusion at such an
hour. Girls' high voices were calling loudly through the halls inquir-
ing what o'clock it might be and what there was for breakfast. The house
seemed bustling with people. There were doors slamming, telephones
ringing, and eager looking people hurrying toward the street shouting
back in derision at the slower ones. All seemed in delirious haste to
reach the street but when they got there they sauntered along idly enough.

Here are some of the conveyances by means of which people make
the ascent of the high hill or cross the broad stream to the school.
First, a primitive two-wheeled flyer, on which we saw often, a very
blonde young man, wearing a green sort of coat. It looked not unlike the
Indian blanket fashioned to fit the civilized man. This young man whistled
as he whirled by and we were told

declared he was not able to procure a tint such as I described, but the scar-

Smnhag Night Biuereiinn
if NOW you the ways of a Cub, gentle reader? If not, come to our
parlor of a Sunday evening. Girls are everywhere, on the music
cabinet, on the floor and two deep on chairs and divan. Sud-
denly the bell clangs twice. The chatter is hushed, breathless-
ness fills the air. The door opens and in comes the butcher boy-big
jovial Joe. Cries of "Hello Joe, did you bring some pickles?" greet
him. Bess calls out, "Do you remember me, Joe?"
"Sure I dolt'
"What's my name ?"
Joe scratches his head. He ponders a moment but replies reluct-
antly, "Can't remember just now!" Squeals of glee and a reproachful
"Oh,,' follows. Joe lingers to talk until the door bell rings tremulously. The
girls assume hawk-like attitudes to let no chance of fun slip by unchal-
lellged- IS if 3 DSW guest? One look establishes the fact. Whispers,
wise nods, glances of anticipation pass the word along, "He's a new one I"
A small, well-groomed man with a clean-cut face enters. A room full of
smiling girls takes him unawares. He smiles weakly, twirls his hat ner-
vously. His eyes take on a hunted look. The agonizing moment passes
when he sees her coming toward him. He grabs her hand and spurts
out, "I'm delighted to see you I" She leads him around the circle intro-
ducing him to all. He smiles, nods his head and says, "I'm glad to know
you." He repeats it to the next. Then he tries "Good evening," for
awhile, but finally merely nods recognition. The dreadful ordeal is past.
He sinks wearily into a chair
The door bell clangs again, noisily and quickly. All eyes are fixed on
the hall door. This time a tall, debonair youth walks boldly in. With
him comes a round faced boy in a long coat and slouch hat. The former
recognizes the girls and jests and introduces his friend right and left.
One girl, bolder than the rest, glibly asks them to be seated as she pushes
forward some chairs. She seats herself at the piano and calls, "Come on,
everybody, let's sing."
The debonair youth takes a seat in the corner. He answers in mon-
osylllables when spoken to. His smiles become few and far between. One
sympathetic girl goes out and calls to the others to come too. A few linger
to make necessary adjustments. Soon a quiet settles down over the house
and the halls appear silent. Suddenly the first strains of the Sunday even-
ing concert float down to the parlor from the upper hall. "Drink to Me
Only With Thine Eyes," "In Old M'ad1'icl," "Let Me Call You Swectlzea1't,"
are the selections ofered. The house again assumes a quiet Sunday even-
air for a long unbroken interval. Then the occupants in the parlor be-
come disturbed by a sharp click, click on the window. It continues in-
cessantly. At last an investigation reveals a gleaming button hook dis-
appearing overhead. The hall and rooms above again are charged with
sounds of hilarity. The girls pour down the stairs the melodies of:
You'll have to leave us now."
The music ceases suddenly, as it began. In a few moments the guests
depart. The girls wearily ascend the stairs, only to find absolute quiet
and darkness and sleep, sleep, everywhere. LILLIAN FORSBERG.

We who are garbed in modern trim,
Who, if we walk, must be quite slim,
Little believe in the tales that are told
Of skirts that were full,-in the days of old.
But 1 saw a sight on a winterls night,
QThough alas, we are satisfied in our plight,
Nor wish to accredit, or even to deem
That magic pageant more than a dreaml-
A sight which was only a memory
Of the day when a maiden's step was freeg
On the night which from every year we take,
When out of the past its folk awake,
And the semblances of its squires and dames
Walk abroad under other names,
And Dolly and Martha, and Molly and Sue
In their grandchildren's children may frolic anew.
Hung with our nation's colors, the rooms,
And sweet with the musty, faint perfume
Of flowered garments which, till that night,
Had blossomed sadly, hid from the light
In grandmother's chest, or the wardrobe's gloom,
And just for the evening had freedom to bloom,
But were fated once more to be buried away
To joy for a year in their one holiday.

Lo! the lights were all tempered to soft candle glow,
The Iiddles, decorous, sang swaying and slow,
And quaintly there marched, by stately twos,
Our grandmothers' gowns and the buckled shoes
And the satin waist-coats, ruFHed stocks,
The powdered queues, and the stockings with clocks,
Knee-breeches, and long-tailed coats, and all
The Vanities of our sires at the ball.
Hoops and patches and silvery curls,
The trimmest of stays on the trimmest of girls,
Like roses with faded petals their guise,
They passed-were a dream to my waking eyes.
Then the old-time dance took a holiday fling,
And the Grand Right and Left in its silken swing,
With its courtly swish and its grace, and then-

NCE there was a man who wandered through
the woods and fields, and journeyed over the
meadows and through the swamps where he
could hear the clear, sweet call of the phoebe, the cry
of the blue-jay, the twittering of the blue-bird, the
whistling of the bob-white and the drum, drum, of the
Wbodpecker, busy making his home i.n a dead stump.
He drew many pictures of birds and followed them long
distances that he might make his pictures true. Many
hardships and long fruitless tramps he endured to make
his pictures life-like and true to his knowledge of our
In the spring of the year must come to us the
thoughts of this man Audubon, then when every heart
on our campus is full of song, and our senses are alert
like his to detect the presence of any cheerful little
bird. Here our eyes catch sight of the robin hopping
about on the grass looking for worms, and yonder in
the distance we hear the meadow-lark whistling clear
and sweet. The noisy Hicker down by the Normal gate
sends his echoing call across the campus to let us know
that he is happy and content. The glossy blackbird
lights by the Kishwaukee and takes a drink of the
muddy water. A little bird in blue flits across the
path to a tree in front cheering everyone with a song
who pass beneath him. And then there are the beau-
tiful orioles and warblers, welcome back no less to our
But before the birds come back are We seeing them
too in our imaginations as we gather and talk about
them, and in imagination we hear their songs. Then
most do we feel the life of this great man Audubon,
coming back to fill us with his tender bird-love. And
as he was the first to open up this great field of study
so is he still keeping open the paths of investigation
and research and keeping alive the spirit of enthusiasm.

Joint Contribution of the Ellwood and
Glidden Supreme Authorities
To the Student Body at large: We
salute you in this, our Land of Scholar-
dom. It is the "Era of Good Feeling"
when wars and troublous strifes are
over, yet not so far subsided that we
have forgotten the heroism and un-
daunted bravery of our Master Critic in
this, our realm of jurisdiction. Fellow
students, you are aware that it is of our
honored school president we speak.
Nothing so momentous have our
societies witnessed in the history of
their development. Truly we are fav-
ored individuals to have been the par-
ticipants in the annals of this red letter
year. What has he not undergone in
order to witness our humble attempts?
Think of the sacrifices he has made-
the interesting evenings at home with
friends and books, the delayed interviews
with seekers of knowledge, absence from
affairs of wider educational scope-all
these he has foresworn for our sake,
Brothers Ellwood and Sisters Glidden.
Think of those nights when he has
breasted the wind of Normal Hill or
has trod the icy pavement which offered
no comfort to timid feet. Yes, We owe
him much for the stimulus he has cre-
ated for our greater existence.
Yet, we think, your share has been
nobly accomplished. You, too, have
spent those Saturday evenings in liter-
ary congress when you might have
studied lessons for Monday, you might
have joined in thrilling ragtime in the
Club parlor, you might have been the
honored guest at a spread across the
hall. But you turned aside from those
enticing allurements, to breast the ele-
ments, and so take your place at the
We recommend to our United Societies
that the same unswerving fidelity be
shown through the opening jurisdiction.
We recommend a continuance of your
worthy journalistic efforts.
We recommend your hearty co-oper-
ation in financial affairs that you may
further prosperity and happiness.
We recommend the possibilities of de-
bate which if frequently tried will make
for more forceful expression, that in the
end will enable you to carry ofl' equal

SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW
Notes From the Court
First Women Jurors - Intense Interest
Twice, in these few months, has the
East Music Hall served as a court room
in which men have been tried for crimes,
heinous and horrible. Sad were the
hearts of the spectators as they listened
to men and women solemnly swear, "To
tell no truth nor nothing of the truth."
The jury box was the center of at-
traction. Immnense hats with drooping
willow plumes gracefully festooning the
broad Iorims or, in some cases where
hats had been discarded, there were the
beautifully arranged coilfures in the
stead of bald and shining crowns.
The room was filled at each session
and often when a vital point was reached
a murmur of approval or dissatisfaction
would surge through the court to be
quieted only by the sheriff's "Order,"
The venerable judge, as well as the
attorneys on each side, were men and
women who thoroughly understood the
law and many and heated were the a1'gu-
ments between the two sides. I
Some of the most noted persons of the
times were to be seen on the witness
stand. The professions and trades each
presented noble exponents of the cause.
Perhaps it was sympathy-maybe love
of strife-nevertheless there was an in-
terminable length of time spent in that
secret, secluded room where the decisions
were reached as to whether the young
men were to pine behind loathsome
prison walls or to be allowed to roam
in freedom once again.
Persons who attended each session
of 'the court have been wondering just
what the men will do when those suff-
ragists come unto their own.
PERSEUS IN EXILE
Is the Age of Eloquence Dead?
Above the blare of the trumpets, or
the cheering of the multitudes the loud
cry re-echoed, "To the victor belong the
spoils." Thus wild with excitement,
surglng crowds vociferated their appre-
c1at1on of those mighty gladiatorial con-
tests of the early ages. Great honors
were heaped upon the winners' headsg
the ladies of their choice did smile upon
them, rejoicing was in the air,
The time was when contestants
warred within these very walls-but now
the cry no longer rings within our halls
so stately. No intellectual graduates
appear to battle for literary triumph
and proud Perseus is there alone, un-
noticed and unsought. In his left hand
he holds aloft the head of his enemyg ln
his right, the sword with which he per-
petrated his deed. But there is no glory
shining forth, no draperies of royal
purple or green become his august
shoulders-for mighty Perseus is in
Why lament we thus? Ar-e the days
of eloquence over? In this vast assem-
blage of men and women are there no
heroes to combat for his honor? The
hours, days and months roll by, leaving
him in solitude. Methinks the age of
heroic contest is dead. Meantime Per-
seus bides in exile.

Upon Normal Hill!

Troubles of the Week

THE PERSISTENCE OF A
A Brilliant Future Predicted for the
Special to the Review: Our society
reporter considers himself very fortunate
in getting an interview with one of the
young men who acted as collector dur-
ing the year. We quote his exact words:
"The life of a collector is weary and
sad, no thought of the times when it
renders you mad-so pleasing to meet a
young lady fine, amd sweetly and
smilingly ask for a dime-to be told just
as cheerily, I knew then how true, that
sheid bring it tomorrow and give it to
you. Such wandering about halls and
the library through, the task was enough
to give one the blues, not thinking at all
of 'the wear on my shoes. The rebuffs
and delays of people have tended to urge
me to say, 'Collections suspendedf "
The reporter expected a fervent amen,
but he only murmured, 'tNever again."
SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW
A FIRST APPEARANCE
Could you forget it?-that first time
you ev-er appeared on a society pro-
gram? Do you call to mind the wait-
ing through an interminable preliminary
programfat last, 'the calling of your
name, that sudden choking sensation in
your throat, that sinky feeling inside
like taking a quick drop in an elevator,
the supremely brave act of rising and
walking down the aisle to the platform,
and then the awful shock of turning to
that confusion of faces? One feels his
face grow warm, and then hot and hotter
and he knows it is passing through all
the shades of red to a brilliant scarlet.
Faltering he begins-or more likely she.
How startlingly high her voice has
climbed! She vainly tries to draw it
down, but it shrills on in its willful way
and frightens her still more. But now
she goes faster, spurred on by th'e
thought that more speed means quicker
release from this consuming torture.
The back of her brain keeps Wondering
if she can really continue to exist longer,
but always the front of her brain keeps
making her tongue rattle away in yet
Wilder haste thinking only that the
faster she goes the sooner she will be
through. Sometimes her tongue will
not move and sometimes a word gets lost
in her throat. Sometimes the right word
won't come and then the back of her
brain sees all those people staring,
every one of them waiting for her to say
something, but the front of her brain
goes chasing around as fast as can be
to find a word that can be pressed into
service. The halt past, she makes up
time, for always the front of her brain
remembers that to go faster means to
get done sooner. On she goes without
break or pause for breath, until she gets
hold of the right end of her concluding
sentence, takes the whole thing at full
speed and-it is over!

SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW
The spectator had occasion to visit
a society meeting not long ago. Upon
his arrival at the door he was greeted
by a busin-ess-like usher who offered to
lead him to a desired seat. No sooner
had the spectator seated himself than
his peace cf mind was unduly shattered
by an excited whisper in back of him.
"Don't you hope this program will be
short so we'll have a longer time to
dance?" The spectator wonders if the
literaryimeeting is regularly followed by
a dance, and if so, how the students
manage to dance up and down the nar-
row aisles. A rush and a murmur near
the door attract his attention. Looking
in that direction he beholds little maidens
decked in party array come tripping
lightly into the room, followed by their
little boy companions. An exclamation
concerning the decorations in the gym,
comes to his ears, and the spectator
concludes that there is to be a party in
The spectator's gaze wanders along
the back row of seats: here it is shav-
fferjed off by the smithg there the
row is made fuller by the parsong farther
along it is occupied by liver guys, but
not until he beholds the western ex-
tremity of the row does he find the
fwj right place. The chatter and laugh-
ter inithe middle rows quite disconcert
the spectator, he sees only a few solemn
looking individuals, and those he con-
cludes are to take part in the evenLng's
program. The spectator observes that
the front row is filled with dignity and
power and influence, faithful faculty
members, one of whom he mentally
selects as the critic. Now a young lady
follow-ed by another young lady hurriedly
mounts the platform, the former glances
up quickly, lifts the haughty gavel and
brings it to the desk with a thud that
makes the spectator jump. A hush
falls over the audience. The minutes of
the previous meeting are readg "the first
number on the program tonight" is an-
nounced, a-nd the spectator settles back
comfortably for an hour of enjoyment.
In the meantime he hears whispering
behind him, people coming in between
numbers, and he wonders what the
crit-ic's report will be like, and what
sort of a party 'there will be in the gym.

LL Normal land fairly sparkles with the infec-
tions jollity of the Juniors. Even Seniors
have forsaken some of their dignity to yell
and cheer and play with their balloons. But
the most elect-why, they're up there being some-
body else. And a fine mess they're making of it, too!
There is Robert Lascelles trying to play the part of a
husband who worries because his Wife's maid has
eloped. But here's a new maid. If it isn't Melita Roe-
fer in the roll of a college girl studying economics and hunting for exper-
ience. She's here as Ellen, Mrs. Ford's maid. Mrs. 'Ford doesn't know
her though and doesn't suspect that she's the girl her brother Bob fell in
love with at college. Paul Moon is Bob and he certainly knows how to
be a lover. There they are now-Ellllen and Bob-playing golf. Do you
recognize Dorothy March? Yes, Hazel Olsten, engaged to Max Eyck who
is Loyal Eldridge. He proposed to Melita at college and when she said
"No," he said if she changed her mind to let him know. And he's going
to visit the Fords! Well, he'd better hurry or Kenneth McMurry, who's
letting on he's the new rector, Mr. Hume, will get ahead of him with Dor-
othy. Mr. Hume is very much in love, so much he's limp. In fact he's
written out his proposal and it's a soulful thing. Why, there's Max now!
Poor Mr. Hume! This is a fine mixup. Max recognizes Ellen and thinks
she's come for him. This will spoil it all! There, sure enough, Dorothy
breaks the engagement the first time she sees him alone. Why did Melita
ever decide on economics! Oh! there's going to be a garden party to-
night! I hope Ellen won't be found out and spoil it. There's Mr. Hume
again and here comes Dorothy. He's-yes, he's proposing to her. Oh, if
Max would-there he is! And Dorothy's telling Mr. Hume that she is en-
gaged to Max! There's Ellen and Bob. He's as much in love with her
as Max is with Dorothy. Why doesn't Ellen accept him and disclose her

IGWAMS in among the trees on a pleasant greensward
through which meanders a little stream. Indians lying
around asleep, and Nokomis awakened from her "seeing into
the future" tell their own story. Then arrives no other
than "DeKalb, the white explorer, with his guides and his
companions," and a little later Hiawatha and "Minnehaha, Laughing
Water." Then there is the wedding feast and Hiawatha's prophesy of
the coming of a "noble school of learning."
The scene changes. Instead of Wigwams, we see small cottages, and in
the grove two men are working with Wire. Dressed in overalls, their
sleeves rolled up, and no hats on, the one with a cigar in his mouth, they
are trying to make a wire that "will turn a herd of locoed cattle," but the
"blamed barb won't stick." Finally a few quick turns, a loud "Hurrah,"
and a triumphant looking pair of men have finished their work.
But what is this in the grove? Why is that man pumping so strenu-
ously? And who are the distinguished looking men crossing the bridge?
The charming stream Cwhich is helped materially by the man at the
pumpj, the verdant greensward, the beautiful trees, all help to decide
that this is an "ideal spot for the school" and that "Polo and Rockford
are out of the race."
Hiawatha's prophesy has come true. The noble school of learning is
standing before us. King John, surrounded by his band of gallant court-
iers, is holding high court. The plaintii is Dr. Shoop and the charge that
of "making footprints on the marble floor." King John sorrowfully be-
wails the fact anyone can "so violate the spirit of order." 'f if 'F The pic-
ture on King John's face as he beholds the rubber that made the prints
and recognizes it as his own is indeed a sad one, and time it is that we
play a few games and do some old fashioned dances to cheer the King's
heart. The sad look leaves his face as he hears the gay voices ringing
over the courtyard and sees them trip merrily over the grassy lea. As We
come back to ourselves once more we feel sure that Hiawatha's prophesy
has come true and that the Freshman class has "been boosting for the
Normal, ever adding to its honor." RAYMOND FERRIS.

RESTO! Change! Where Mr. Annas stands with the stick, there
is Lady Sneerwell, curling her lip and working havoc with the
characters of her "friends." CThink what peril we have been in
all year with her as editor of the Northern Illinois lb How frank
Mrs. Candour is! Joseph Surface entertains such noble senti-
ments! But how queer he looks! Can that be-7 Surely not-! Yes, it
is Mr. Peterson without his wig! Who is he of the ghastly countenance?
His name is Crabtree but where have I seen him before? I'm sure I
should never recognize that faceg but no one can doubt to whom the voice
belongs. How he beams with pride over his nephew, Sir Benjamin Back-
bite, who is so clever that he can write poetry in the crack of a whip and
on horseback too! tPerhaps this same Benjamin has had long practice
in the art of writing for appreciative eyes.J Poor Maria appears like a
timid deer amid a pack of ravening wolves in this company of scandal
mongers. Lady Teazle with her naive extravagance wins our sympathy
at once. Who could be such a hard hearted husband as Sir Peter? Why!
It's Mr. Lyon! Good accommodating Rowley, so ready with advice and
suggestions. It's easy to identify you. You are Mr. Fossler right over
again. Isn't Moses the worst looking Jew? He certainly knows how to
coach Sir Cliver in getting money of his nephew. So lenient of him,
too, to charge only fifty per cent interest! Why you don't say that is the
young Parson! His mathematical heritage is of good service now, surely.
Sir Oliver plays a versatile role, posing as everything from an exorbitant
Jew to the irate uncle. Where did Gassy ever learn to talk with his
hands? How easily Charles handles money! Now we can understand
those frequent appeals in General! EX. for Northern Illinois subscribers
to pay up. What a difference a wig and a colonial costume make! We
should never know Mr. Ferris in the guise of Snake if we didnit recognize
his voice. And there are Careless, Sir Harry and Trip, everyone having
something familiar about him. But down goes the curtain, Sir Peter,
Lady Teazle and all the rest step back into the book and Lady Sneerwell's
scandal coterie is broken up for good.

'Twas the night of dress rehearsal
And every one was gay,
We'd lined up for Sir Peter
To say his final say.
"Be careful of the glasses.
They're very thin you know."
lBut when the drinking scene was on
Bang! Smash, a glass did go.1
"Don't forget the door sill,
For you might stub your toes,
And it would be most impolite
To enter on your nose."
"Don't say, 'Here he comes walking'
Gassman, that is not so.
A man into his parlor
On horse back does not go."
Girls, don't forget that you have trains
And please act properly:
If Shafer stands upon your gown
Why, pray, just let him be.
The play at length was started
And everything went well,
Till Pete came in without a wig,
His desperate love to tell.
Then when the play was ended,
We round Sir Peter flocked,
To see in what new places
He had been freshly shocked.

O have you heard the music softly stealing '
Through all our spacious corridors and halls,-
Low music, that is sweetly penetrating?-
In welcomeness upon our ears it falls.
'From towers high the gay, bright songs resound,
And bird-like trills come wafted on the air,
And then the rollicking, ragtime minstrell round
Floats down with its buoyant freedom from care.
New strains from operas full and strong,
Violins' high notes, or a band's martial beat,
Blend with the notes of a bird's joyous song
That suddenly floats in, melodious and sweet.
HELEN MUN HALL
q P ,p, iii,
A grand rush at supper, waiters flying hither and yon in answer
to quick spoken orders, a speedy donning of coats, and a rapid
exit-these things betoken that it is Treble Clef night. A hasty
passage down the street, a rush up the steps, a jam in the diminu-
tive hallway, wraps thrown in a promiscuous heap, then a free
scramble for the coach.
It 1S the night for our sing.
Then we can sing best.
The disappointed in the fray console themselves with fellows on
the floor. Talk is rife until a sounding chord enjoins absolute
quiet. Our grave president gives us a few words of needed admon-
ition. Last week she read a letter, the week before also and the
one before that. Almost always there is a 'letter for there are a
great many notable people to whom the Treble Clef sends flowers.
Then we begin to sing.
There are some difficulties. It is hard for five people to attempt to
gaze intently at one small sheet of music at the same time. This is
harder if a neighboris jaunty feathers are always jabbing one in
But anyway we sing.
The windows are open and the wind blows through in a mighty
gale. Even with pillows the floor is hard. Yes, there are diffi-
cuflties. Groans and sighs are heard on all sides. The tall girl
who sits on the fioor by the doorway always looks as though she
were giving voice to a funeral dirge, so sad and sorrowful is her
Yet we sing.
Our conductor freely expresses his favorite injunction, "Follow the
stick!" He who does not follow is marked. For in an impressive
pause, while the stick is halted in mid-air, his voice sounds forth
with startling boldness. Our famous second altos astonish one by
the baseness of their song. It always makes one feel as if the bot-
tcgln had dropped out of their voices. But for all our gazing at
We still sing lustily.
It is unfortunate to sit next one with too ample a voice, for then
there is an uncomfortable feeling that perhaps one is herself mak-
ing all the discords she hears. Yet she cannot tell whether she is
singing or not. The only expedient is to sing louder.
And we sing on-
surmounting all hardships and trials until we end with a grand
finale. Treble Clef is over. To extricate personal belongings from
the melee in the hall requires dexterity and skill. This is a gen-
eral rubber exchange and she is wise who gets out in time to carry
away a better pair than she left. But we are imbued with the
spirit of song. We cannot cease so suddenly. Out in the open we
still sing on. "Some people put their windows down," but what
care we? So we give voice to cheerful song on all our homeward
For we cannot but sing. HELEN BROOKS.

A Hear in Athletirz
HE school year now drawing to a close has been a successful one
for N. I. S. N. S. athletics. Nothing sensational has been accom-
plished, but no disgraceful defeats cloud our records and a fair
number of victories place us in good average with other schools.
Coach Wirtz is to be congratulated for he has had to work under
difficulties, chief of which was the small number of men availableg and
yet he has developed teams of which the school is proud.
The football season was least successful as far as victories are con-
cerned. Two things explain this: first, theeteam took all the available
material so that no men were left for a second squad, hence, the "varsity"
could get little real game practiceg second, a schedule fair to our team
could not be arranged because so few schools of our rank are within reach.
In spite of these handicaps creditable showings were made even against
some of the strong teams of the state.
Basket ball has left a brighter history. The small number of men
demanded by each team enabled the coach to divide the material into
squads. This made possible all-round practice and has developed some
excellent prospects for next year. Graduation will remove three of the
first team, but there are strong men to take their places and we look for-
ward to another prosperous season. The Normal five defeated at least
once every team it met and won all the games on the home fioor. The
failures abroad, three in number, were all because of small gymnasiums.
Two games were especially significant. Batavia has had a state cham-
pionship team and it came over with a large company of "rooters" to
administer our boys a drubbing. After a hard-fought battle the visitors
surrendered their swords and went home wearing the brand of at least
one defeat. Evanston Academy sent a fast team and the coniiict was the
greatest exhibition of basket ball displayed on the Normal floor during
the season. The game was close from start to finish and intensely inter-
esting to the spectators. It was no small event to defeat the represent-
atives of a school which holds so high a place in interscholastic athletics.
The baseball season has just opened. The two games played have
not been first class, but it is early and errors are to be expected. Most of
the positions are well filled and with more practice the team will take a
worthy place with the others of the year.
Two things through the year have been observed by the writer. In
the first place, a sportsman-like spirit has prevailed among the players.
The play in the main has been clean and manly. The victory is not
always to be had at any price. In the second place, the students have
been given a generous support. The basket ball games were especially
well attended. Even inclement weather could not dampen the enthusiasm.
Athletics in which fair play is the rule and in which all take a hearty
interest hold a large place in student life.

61112 Basket Ball Stnrg
HE story of basket ball started with the beginning of things in
the new year. Then such questions as, "Are you going to play ?"
or, "Will you make the team?" were as important as, "Where
are you from ?" The Freshmen hover about the gymnasium door
getting only a look in as the more confident students leave and
enter. If they are fortunate they see the aspiring ones going through
their stunts for Miss Foster. These Freshmen, growing more daring, see
again about two weeks later the same girls at a practice. Some of the
players are rushing upstairs to dress while the earlier ones are already
practicing baskets and free-throws. Other aspirants less adept with the
ball are throwing it swiftly in a circle or passing hard thrown balls to
each other. A student teacher rushes in with only a minute to don her
attire and takes her place. The whistle calls the girls together and after
receiving some instructions they line up for the practice game. The
Freshmen on-lookers enjoy this game which is played with all the
spirit and enthusiasm of an outside contest. In a few more weeks the
desired places on the team were won, and Florence Wagley had been
chosen captain and there were crises ahead.
With each game came a turning point. This is no less a tale of vic-
tory because of the loss of the first game with Wheaton, for it aroused
a determination and enthusiasm among the members of the team, which
prevented a downward story of defeat. Now loomed ahead of the team
the Alumni game, the game that was in the minds of all the players dur-
ing the coming games and practices. One of these games was between the
Juniors and Seniors and since most of the girls were Juniors they were
victorious. Soon followed the game with Hinsdale. When the team
arrived they were served with a delicious dinner in the domestic science
dining room, while our team was at home dining on bread and milk.
But it was observed that the Hinsdale players did not indulge in their
desserts. Afterwards Hinsdale played a good game but Normal played
better and was triumphant. Then were we glad for the bread and milk.
Now came the great crisis and culminating event in the story-the
Alumni game. Toward this game all had been working hard. Now the
question, "How shall we beat the Alumni ?" was well answered. During
the first minute of play Normal scored and kept this swift playing up until
the game was theirs.
But the story does not end here. For those who stilfl wanted "more"
a home game was played with the Gliddens and Ellwoods. The green
and purple ribbons worn by the players showed the spirit and rivalry
of the contest and the on-lookers soon joined in with the enthusiasm, and
cheered their players on. The Glidden girls as well as the Glidden boys
won amid the cheering of both societies. Thus the season and story
closed with enthusiasm and pleasure. HAWTHORNE ADAMS.

Basket ball no more we'll play, the Ellwoods won't be seen,
For there's an awful scare against the wearers of the green.
I met the Glidden captain and she took me by the hand,
And says she, "How're all the Ellwoods and how do they stand ?"
"They're the most disgusted people that ever you have seen,
They're hanging back in class and hall, those wearers of the green.
Last night, oh fans! the two did play a game of basket ball,
The Glidden boys did make their score in numbers big and tall.
The Glidden girls did do the same, were loyal to their team,
But 'twas a shame to do that same to the wearers of the green,
We cheered the Glidden winners, as hard as we could shout,
And rallied on the Ellwoods to knock the Gliddens out.
But though our teams did lose the games, there was no awful scene,
They're biding time until next year, those wearers of the green.

- N the room where you and We have daily met, the institution has been bold
enough to place over the arch of the stage a worda-a name--the name, as
we trust, of the presiding genius, of the indwelling spirit of this school:
Veritas-Truth. We have craved to know her and the liberty wherewith
she makes free, we have craved that you, too, should know her and be enrap-
tured with "her divine completeness", that-
"She send the deathless passion in her eyes
Through you, and make you hers and lay her mind on you,"
that in her spirit you should go into the presence of children and lead them to her,
that they, too, might be free.
I recall that as Sir Galahad beheld the Holy Graildescend upon a shrine, he saw
"The fiery face as of a child -
That smote itself into the bread",
and that in the strength of that abiding vision he rode on, and broke through all, and
came again victor.
As you sit down with children and break with them the bread of knowledge, if
only your eyes are enlightened with truth, if only your spirit is clothed upon with-
'tTrue humility, the highest virtue of them all," '
then shall you drink deep of the pure wine of lifeg for you shall find its unfailing
chalice, the Holy Grail of daily living, in the joyous, loving heart of childhood. And
in the strength of this shall you and they who after you shall come and go on the
noble quest, fare forth-
t'Shatte'ring all evil customs everywhere."
And thus shall dawn on the glad earth the day of the Teacher, the day of Child-
hood and its unmarred human heritage, the day of humility and its deliverance, the
day of God and His Christ.

Too much of game and sport,
Too much of going out and coming in of friendsg
Too much rnusic, too much art,
Too much philosophy-but yet enough
To keep the balance true.
May there, besides, be just enough
Of going out to woods and lakes-
To quiet nooks and quiet thought.
May there be just enough of all of these
To keep the balance true.
Of all of these We ask Thee just enough, dear Lord,

Of love there cannot be too much-

The U. of I. is extended upon an an-
tenuated green ribbon of campus that is
stretched by Providence between the
twin cities to prevent them becoming
Champana or Urbaign, according to the
survival of the fittest. The campus is
so abstemious in width that students
playing one old cat in Urbana have to
use care about fracturing plate glass
in Champaign, and so long that motor-
cycle service has been established be-
tween classes Qexcept for co-eds. who
use it only in the eveningl. A motor-
cycle is to be substituted for the engine
on the seal of the University. Incident-
ally, since "Bud" Farr was here they
wish to substitute a ball bat rampant on
a field diamond, in place of the present
hammer and anvil. The principal dis-
sipation of the population is arresting
students for illegal voting and then re-
leasing them. It is considered a social
triumph to have been in jail, and at one
time arrangements were being made for
club rooms at Joliet. The "U" owes its
place in the Hall of Fame to the fact
that its Prexy is in the numerous con-
gregation of "An old pupil of mine," its
vice-prexy, "an old class-mate of minef'
amd one-fourth per cent of the students
are from the Northern Normal. The
student body can be segregated into
groups, those who have been at DeKalb
fsmall and selectj, those who have sis-
ters there fsmall and assorted-no one
has brothers therej , and those who know
people from there flarge and variedi.
The remainder are even less numerous
than co-eds. at the Junior Prom. You
can identify a Normalite by striking a
pose in front of the library, and making
a :noise like beau-oo-oo-ti-ful! The sus-
pected victim, if genuine, will at once
exclaim, "Yves, but you ought to see our,"
etc." No Normalite ever Hunked after
registering, but some girls Csuifragettes
please copyj finding the near-Australian
ballot system of registering too compli-
cated, have succumbed before the treas-
urer could collect their fees. We Nor-
malites are welcomed with two years'
credit and an icy hand from the Rhe-
toric department, which gently but firmly
requests us to endure Freshman Themes.
At the University one feels that the
other 3999 would never send out a relief
party if one fell into the Boneyard fthe
Kish to the Nth powerl, but at DeKalb
the departing Senior has a dazed won-
der how the old place can keep on insti-
tutionalizing raw material when he has
lost his place in General Ex.
THE BALLAD OF THE HAS BEEN
It was an ancient Normal man,
Who'd been some time away,
Who in a journey through the state
Came to DeKalb one day.
He waited there to change his train,
Yclept the fast express,
And had two hours yet to spend
In utter idleness.
He said, "I'll go and take a stroll,
The old place I will see,
Mayhap I may acquire a friend,
To gentlie comfort me."
In sooth it was a lovely night,
And scarcely after eight,
But oh, the quietness he found,
I tremble to relate.
He wandered 'round the Horseshoe curve
But not a soul saw he,
He walked the campus paths along,
But found tranquilitie.
The tall gray walls he circled 'round
In peaceful stillness rose,
He said, "The old place seems to have
I'm sure that things were livelier
When our class were in town.
The Doctor must recently have used
His most emphatic frown."
But the Benson Club, and the Kilmer too
Showed scarcely a ray of light,
All wrapped in studious quietness,
For it was study night.
And he hastened back to the Waiting
With one sad and longing cuss.
"Were we really then so awful gay,
Or did I dream it thus?"

THE FABLE OF THE
THAT DIDN'T WORK
QWith excuses to George.J
Once upon a time there was a Youth
with an Erroneous Impression. He had
no Pedagogic Talent, but he Imagined
that the Way to become a Malefactor of
Great Wealth, was to Teach. Havirng
Frozen to this Idea he Perambulated to
a Normal School, and Prepared Himself
for Mounting the Ladder, Crossing the
Alps, and incidentally strewing Life's
Pathway with the lingering Flavor of
Gasoline. When he had Cornered his
Share of Ivnstitutionalized Intellectual-
ity, a Position with a Salary began to
Look Good to him, but there was Nothing
Doing but Ordinary Jobs with mere Pay.
So he said to the Dispensers of Positions,
"Put me Wise, why is This?" and they
remarked, "You Must annex a Degree."
So he went Forth and in a Deuce of
Years Salted dowin another Neat white
Roll in the Bottom of his Trunk. But
again he was Stung, for they Said, "The
Standards have taken the express Ele-
vator, we Demand an advanced Degree."
So he burned the Midnight Juice once
more, and Came again to the Outer
Sanctum. And the employers of the
Altitudinous Brows said, "It is Well,
Now gather Experience and we will talk
Business." So he took a Taxi for a
Distant Place aind gathered Experience
but little Else.
S0 once more he Hit the Old Trail,
and They remarked, "Now you Only
need a Ph, D., and any plum is yours."
Which Jarred him Some, but he was
Game, and while te-mpus Fugited for
awhile he annexed the Needful, and for
the last Time Bought a Return Ticket,
and they Looked at him Sadly and Said,
"How unfortunate your Profession is
Overcrowded, You Should Have Taken
Ceramics." Then the Would Be Male-
factor of Great Wealth went forth, and
Beat his Head against the Wall thrice,
and Hired himself to a Purveyor of
One hundred eighteen
Groceries, and waxed Rich, for he was
that Kind. And he married the said
Purveyor's daughter and Papered the
Front Room with Diplomas. This Fa-

Upon which the shade of Swinburne

Zilhe Autnrrat nf the Glluh iilahln
BEAUTIFUL spring morning, and I am late again for breakfast
some small matter of ten or fifteen minutes. A very small mat-
ter, my tardiness is to me, but seemingly not to the little deft
waitress whose mobile face has lengthened some ten or fifteen
degrees since my entrance. My cream-0'-wheat dish and toast
plate come in contact with the table with a resonant plump!
With patient resignation I calmly soothe myself with the thought
that surplus energy must have a vent in some mood or other. I do not
deign to notice the amused looks of some twelve or fifteen pairs of eyes,
now revolving in my direction.
"A beau-ti-ful morning Deacon Longface!" bubbles from a laughing,
fresh, blossom-'like maiden who signs herself "Twist"
"Yes, you would think so, if you had to get up at the beau-ti-ful hour
of five, to trail around in Annie's woods, a-listening and a-looking for
birds to be where they ain't!" grumbles Miss--, no matter, I cannot
recollect her real nameg she's just the little "Chocolate Pudf'
With a dexterous movement she slips me the pitcher of the club cow's
cream and at the same time guides the fruit plate down to another tardy
one. Great woe is unto him for the waitress has just noticed his entrance
and iixes upon him a strong glare.
Here I deem it time for me to grip the reins of conversation and
with a preliminary a-h-e-m, look about at the variety of physiognomies
grouped about me. I note the plump athletic student Cwhose musical tal-
ent lies concealed beneath layers of fatl writhing in his chair. Like a
war-horse, he scents the coming battle of words, and brings his knife
with a vigorous down-beat, nicking the plate which is a real imitation of
Haviland china. Dramatically he exclaims, still beating martial time,
"Pessimists who persist in pestering people should be put in a two-by-four
cell and be allowed to argue with none other than their other selves!"
Aghast at this reprobate's chalenge, I pause for a fitting reply-
here the irrepressible, slim, blue-eyed, innocent imp known as "Little
Earlie," ofiiciously passes me the cat-sup in its little snub-nosed pitcher.
Its contents I gravely pour into my fragrant coffee and stir, idly wonder-
ing the meanwhile why the cream does not come to the top and turn to a
gracious tint of brown. The mouth of a skittish Freshman Cwhose fa-

vorite garb is brownh quirks up at the corners. Her approach to a smile
is caught up by the round-faced orator Cwhose lungs of late, have won
him prominence at the barb and transformed into a species of cachinnation
which becomes infectious. Cries of, "The absent-minded professor of
Eighth Grade up-to-date," arouse me to immediate conditions and for the
moment the impending quarrel with the athletic-musical student is for-
gotten. "Queer what funny mistakes people will make," I quietly remark.
"That reminds me of the grave mistake of a dignified Senior who called
up one Sunday evening with mind seriously bent on making a date with
one of the Club girls. The adviser happened to be calling on the girls
and upon hearing the telephone bell ring, and thinking it to be a call for
herself, answered it. A masculine voice queried, "Who is this ?" and upon
being informed he hustled the receiver back into place and beat a hasty
retreat. Then he hied himself back to his room with the comment,
"Books are far better than girls anyhow."
This is the contribution, doubly welcome, ffor it turns the cynosure
of eyes from mel of the little brown-eyed mischievous "Pest" Her sobri-
quiet suggests strongly the disturber of the peace reigning in the moon-
lighted parlor of a Sunday evening.
"Wasn't that a joke on the sedate Senior ?" merrily laughed the gold-
en-haired, sympathetic peace maker of the Club table.
The long, lean, cadaverous shark student has actually taken his nose
from out his book C"Dink's Diary" is the title I spell outl and busied

-Being ax "!lHtxer"
AVID came home from the Junior party with a long face. A week
4 before he had been advised never to be a "wall'iflower" at a party
but to be a "mixer," He was assured of not only having a better
time himself but of helping others to have a happier time. So at
the Junior party David had been a "mixer,"
The evening began with the Grand March. David gloried in marches.
There was something about them that gave him a noble feeling, a thrill
of importance. Off in the corner stood a lonesome looking girl. He asked
her to march with him, but afterwards, he heartily wished he hadn't. She
couldn't keep step with the music and she couldnlt keep step with him. She
either wallked too fast and trod on the heels of those in front or walked too
slow and they had their own heels stepped on. David was wondering if
he couldn't get out of the following danceg but just then the chord was
struck and his partner turned toward him in a half expectant attitude. It
was already a case of do or die. Now David disliked dancing as heartily
as he gloried in marching. In fact he knew very little-indeed, next to
nothing, about it. But he was being a "mixer," and to be a "mixer" he
had to dance. So he gave his partner his arm and they were soon whirl'-
ing away, or, at least, starting to. They had waltzed only a few feet when
they bumped into a smiling, care-free couple. In getting away from them
they stood in the path of another and they finally fied to the sidelines glad
of a chance to escape. During the next waltz, David stayed behind a bal-
cony post. But this was being a "wallflower" and that would never do.
So when a two-step was started, he was again on the floor with a tall girl
of stout build. For the first few rounds, all went well. On the fourth,
David unwittingly guided his partner into the center, and not knowing
how to get her out, they two-stepped around a circle having a diameter
of about five feet. They not only two-stepped around but they bumped
around. Both were glad when the music stopped and neither wished to
wait for the encore.
The following dances went off with similar disasters. It was with
some misgivings that David had asked a dainty butterfly-girl for the
Sweet Home Waltz. Everything went splendidly at first. His drooping
spirits began to revive. He even found himself conversing quite read-
ily. At the most animated moment, they rounded a corner and he swung
his partner violently against a couple just ahead. The gentleman tripped
and fell to the floor. Just then the music stopped. Both girls and the
fallen man glared at David for a moment, then walked haughtily away.
This was too much. Rushing to the cloakroom, he grabbed his coat and
hat, marched stolidly out of the building and down the avenue to his board-
ing house. "Being a mixer is all right," he soliloquized, "if you are
sure you know how, otherwise it is better to be a wallflowerl'

I ap. -ll. Y
HE ten-five bell had rung. The students poured into the great
auditorium, and quickly found their places, David took his seat
with the others. He listened listlessly to the announcements
until he became conscious of someone saying, "Don't stay away
from the parties because you don't know how to dance. Come
to the gymnasium at three-five today and learn how."
After continued thought during history class, David decided to go.
When classes were over, he was foremost in the merry scramble toward
the gymnasium. An ingratiating lady of the faculty, noted for her
feats of energy, undertook first to teach them the Virginia Reel. How
easily others did it! But David, although he imitated well, came to grief
when it was time to do-si-do.
When the reel was finished, David went home and he felt as though
everything was reeling. His room-mate noticed that something was
Wrong and called out, "What's the matter, Dave ?"
David tried to make his room-mate believe that nothing had hap-
pened. But he did not succeed and a recital of the disconcerting events
of the last hour followed, .with the result that the boys at the house who
knew the Virginia Reel took upon themselves the task of teaching those
who did not know. And what a time the jolly teachers had teaching their
no less jolly pupils to do-si-do and side step gracefully under the arch
without bumping their partners' heads! And yet how fast the pupils
learned! By supper time the delighted teachers saw perfection written
in every action of their pupils.
A week or two later when the Washington party was announced,
David was easily persuaded to hunt up a costume and order a Wig from the
manufacturing company of the institution. On the eventful night he
came forth resplendent in a purple velvet suit, rufiied sialk shirt, silk stock-
ings, buckled shoes and powdered wig. He carried himself with a new
dignity born of external appearance and internal assurance.
As usual the Grand March came first. David could find no fault
with his partner, but the girl in front wore a costume having a three-foot
train. Do the best he could, David couldn't help but step on it once in
awhile. The other girls tried to persuade the wearer to carry her
train. "I simply can't do that," she dedlared. "It makes me feel so
silly carrying a part of my skirt around on my arm." Suddenly David
stepped with his Whole weight on the offending train and nearly a yard
of the dainty lower ruffle parted company with the hem of the skirt.
"What a-! Ex-I Oh! I mean I beg your pardon," stammered
David, conscious of several pairs of eyes turned in his direction. The
owner of the costume sent only a freezing stare toward him and gathered
up her train with an injured air.

After the march David obtained a refreshing drink and then went
back to the gymnasium with a grim determination to go through the
Virginia Reel without a single mistake. And he did! lt was with a feel-
ing of glorification entirely new that he retired behind his favorite bal-
cony post after the Reel.
Only two dances had passed, however, when he saw the smiling coun-
tenance of a gracious member of the faculty before him. "Why, David!',
she exclaimed, "Aren't you dancing? Here, I have a partner for you, and
after this two-step take this girl up to the dining hall for refreshments."
"This girl" was a new girl of the ultra-talkative type. David felt
that he was doing the honors of the school as he led her to a place on the
floor. The conversation grew in interest andllavid did not notice where
he was guiding his partner until he swung her against the music rack
of the first violinist. The racked swayed, balanced unsteadily on two legs
for a moment, then toppled to the floor. The draft from the windows
carried the loose music sheets hither and thither. David hastily excused
himself to his partner and began diving after the music. Under the
stairs, behind the piano, and in between the dancing couples went David,
losing his wig during the performance.
He intended taking his partner to the sidelines as the other fellows
did when he had put the scattered music and fallen rack to rights. But
when he looked for her, he saw her just disappearing through the door
with his room-mate. David's brow darkened. He was angry and yet a
feeling of relief came over him as he thought of the refreshment ordeal
which he would not have to go through.
Just then he saw the gracious member of the faculty approaching,
followed by a stout, awkward looking girl. David made a dive for the
door and disappeared down the hall.
"No more mixing for me," he said to himself. 'Tll' stay with the
rest of the decorations." '

With eyes and ears and horns and tails,
And claws and fangs and stings.

At length the Doctor broke the silence,
"Gladly I'd give my auto away

At the class room door, but a gentle tap,
"Come in," cried the Doctor, and his eyes grew
As in did come the strangest figure:
His skin was bronze and his eyes were blue
And a coat he wore of a greenish hue,
"Please your wisdoms," he said,
I'm tired of standiing in the hall,
Life is dull and tame for me this year
And a new adventure I must have.
I will rid your land of this diresome pest
If you'll have once more a brave contest."
"Agreed! We will!" was the exclamation
From the Doctor and all the combination.
Into the hall he stepped,
Smiling first a little smile,
Three times he shook
The gorgon head.
Then from all the rooms,
Swarming, running, creeping

Down the steps and out the door
Over the terraces they tore
Till they came to the brink of the lake, so deep
And into it quickly, they swarmed and leaped.
There they all perished save one
Which a Junior captured ere set of sun,
And took to Mr. Wager on a run
For a place in his famed museum.
You should have seen the Normal powers
They cleaned the rooms from ground to towers,
And left in the land not even a trace
Of the loathesome ants.
But in the midst of their sudden joy
Once more appeared that uncanny man.
"I have come my adventure to demand,"
"I've done my best," said Dr. Cook,
"To get the contest, for which you lookg
To those meetings I've gone every Saturday night
And I've told Mr. Lyon to keep up the light."
"Besides," said the Doctor with a knowing wink,

We saw with our eyes the xery ants sink.

"I'll shake this head another shake
And you'll get what you don't want to take."
But the Faculty cried, "Do your worst,

Then out into the hall he stepped,
To library door, he quickly went
And ere he shook the head three times-
Lo, into the library tumbling,
Down from the high shelves rumbling
Came histories, dictionaries,
Story books, all the books,
Forth into the hall they came,
Jumping, hopping, skipping, running,
The Doctor was numb and the Faculty stood
As if they were changed into blocks of wood,
Unable to move a step or cry
To the books as they hopped crazily by.
Down the road to Kishwaukee's brink
Wherein they plunged and away were borne,
All but one, whose cover was torn,
Then Mr. Page, as he watched them go,
Keen for a relic, he was not slow,
But captured the book in a bneathless race,
In his pet museum gave it first place.
But the Faculty and Seniors all looked glum
For now ideas refused to come.
Buried and gone Wrere their thoughts so clever,
They must seek new ones, or be lost forever.

the strenuous necessities of knowledge-gaining, joyfully she
hastens to his welcoming domain. "Away with your books," he says.
"This is the place for joyous spirits, for a happy time. Let us have no
moping or sadness here." And a royal good time they have, for Jym is
a splendid host. No one can feel dull with him, for he believes in mirth
and light-heartedness, and none know better than he how to make merri-
ment for his guests. He dearly loves a joke and shakes his sides with
laughter over some incongruous situation or merry prank. Jym reminds
us of a fine old English gentleman who likes good cheer and hospitality.
He wants everyone to have a good time. Especially does he love little
children. As for them, no greater treat can be promised than a visit to
Jym's home. Such games as he teaches them! Jolly, rollicking games,
such as Fox and Geese, Three Deep, or Last Couple Out. He believes in
dancing too, and smiles at the pretty steps of the Swiss May Dance or
the Virginia Reel. He enjoys sports on the green and in the spring time
often gives his little friends a frolic. He loves to see their enjoyment in
the May Pole dance, their games, the contests of the older boys, the happy
play of the little ones.
In his own way Jym is somewhat of a philosopher. "You must have
a sound body if you would have a sound mind," says Jym. "Let us have
all around development. All work and no play makes J ill a dull girl." So
the little children and the Juniors are not the only ones who enjoy the
benefits of his good nature and generous hospitality, and we are glad when
he sometimes sends ,to the room above a herald who cries out some such
proclamation as this:
"Oiez! Oiez! Be it known to all who are weary with the week's
ceaseless roland in Search of knowledge, that on Friday evening Jyrn invites
you all to a frolic. Cast aside your cares and come for an evening of
Jym is the spirit of recreation in our school life. He never grows
old. His unfailing good nature, his merry tricks, his generous hos-
pitality, are ever new to us. We are grateful to him that among the hap-
piest hours of the week are those spent with Jolly Jym.

rms ISTORIA Educationis is his real name, in Normal he is known
O W by the familiar appellation of "Ed" When a student speaks
3 of "Ed" he himself probably could not tell exactly what he
0 0 '4 means. "Ed" is thought of as a 'spirit or presence which re-
sides in the Normal halls and which is dreaded and revered
by every student there. For everyone knows that sooner or
later he or she will come under this spirit's spell. It is unknown
whether "Ed" has ever been seen in the flesh, but the theory is advanced
by some that he is rather robust and that upon his capital extremities
nature has not been 'lavish with her gifts. But the mind which dwells be-
neath this sparse thatch is known to be too wonderful for the ordinary
student to ever imagine. But far be it from this humble writer to pre-
sume to describe "Ed." It would take the 'inductive reasoning of Aris-
totle to describe him with justice.
When the student first comes to Normal as a Freshman he receives
his first initiation into the mysteries of "Ed." To him the thought of
"Ed" is a sort of pleasant fear for he knows that many long years must
elapse before he can stand in the August Presence, and that many things
can happen, such as death or disaster to avert the final day of reckon-
ing. But still he hopes that he may eventually pass under the spirit's
The Junior is of a more serious frame of mind and he soon realizes
that the day is not far off' when he must reach the position which the Sen-
ior now holds, and while he envies the Senior he still feels that his pres-
ent position is at least safer. But it is yet some time before his vision
materializes and his thoughts come back to the sordid affairs of the pres-
ent. He has so many Biology notes to write up that he has little time for
reflection. But all the time he is unconsciously preparing himself to put
in his best licks at "Ed."
Luckily the Senior is given a short period of preparation in the fall
term in which to recuperate all his energies for the coming ordeal. Any
observer will easily detect the marks of worry which the spirit places
upon each countenance. But if the mind of a Senior could be opened like
a book, some such thoughts might be found there: "Now how can I sub-
stitute a course in History of "Ed?" or "Do you suppose that my eyes
will give out before the beginning of the winter term ?" But when the
winter term at last begins every Senior is found firmly planted in the
tabernacle of "Ed,"
On this first memorable day Dr. Cook is found presiding at the
chair. If he were asked he could doubtless tell of many a face to face

interview with old "Ed" himself, of how "Ed" took him by the button-
hole and familiarly accosted him as "My dear old friend," but as yet he has
failed to give any definite words from "Ed," The reason for this reti-
cence is said to be because every word of the spirit is reserved for some
future question when the Doctor has completed his' "Great Didactica'
and has given it to all the people to come. Let us hope that we may be
present at that time, and have all our puzzling problems explained.
Let us pass over the first few days of class work. The student finds
himself in a sort of dream in which he fondly hopes that his name will not
be called. But woe to him if his lesson is not prepared. The five-min-
ute bell may have rung, he may be just settling back for a final wait, when
his name rings out, and everyone now knows what a vacant blank his
mind is. He will not come again with an unprepared lesson. Where Dr.
Cook gets his uncanny powers of picking out the lessonless student we do
not know but it is generally thought that "Ed" himself hovers over the
unlucky one, invisible to the human eye, and points him out to the Doctor.
At least we know that there is something more than human in his method.
It may be well here to give a few instructions to those prospective fol-
lowers of "Ed,"
In the first place it is always well to study one's lesson-not that it does
any particular good-but it is pleasing background from which to work,
as our pedagogy might say. Next in importance is to present a bright and
intelligent eye, as though one were deeply interested in old "Ed's" gym-
nastics. To volunteer reaps its own reward. When one realizes that
one's time is at hand, and does not know the next speech topic, one must
wave one's hand wildly, and then try to talk long enough so that the Doc-
tor will think that of course the rest of the lesson must be equally well pre-
pared. And in such a way even old "Ed" himself is often hoodwinked.
"Ed" is like the game of roulette. No mathematician has ever been
able to work out a system by which the game can be beaten. So the stu-
dent can never be sure that he is not going to be called on. Many other
helpful little things might here be enumerated but it is better that every
student shall work out his own salvation under Dr. Cook and old "Ed."
But when any student has passed safely and honorably for two terms
under the wing of "Edu he is to be shaken by the hand and hailed as
a man of intellect.

Around the auditorium,
Above each tall embroidered column,
A famous head is looking out
To see us as we go about.
But this is what has puzzled me-
Where can the rest of those men be?
The column is by far too tall
For one small man to fill it all.
But maybe these men were pulled out,
Till they were long and thin, not stout
Each one pulled out a little more,
Just tall enough to touch the floor.
But think how funny they would be
If we could get inside and see-
Their little heads away on high,
Their shoulders reaching to the sky.
Or maybe five or six feet down
Some little shelves were fastened on,
And then these men could stand on these
And look on our activities.
Or maybe underneath each chin
A long smooth floor was builded in,
And they are lying sprawled out flat
With both their elbows on a mat.
But anyway it seems to me
That they would very tired be,
These poor undying, famous men-
How could one be so mean to them?

hat minhnw Sill in the 31-lull
FTER a longing look at the window sill, the Junior passed out of the hall.
Never had anyone known this jolly Junior to be so silent, so impas-
sive. Indescribable longings were tugging at her heart, while in her
mind stood out one vivid image, the window sill in the hall. With fears
and misgivings, with sensations she could not label, she passed from class
to class. Periods and ages to her seemed parallel. When called upon to recite,
she could only utter a few meaningless words, sink dejectedly into her seat and cringe
under the censure of her teacher. When the gong sounded for General Exercises, she
slowly picked up her books, walked into the auditorium, looked around hopefully,
her face one of anticipation. Lingering, she passed the groups of girls in the rear.
On she faltered down the aisle, while with each step her expression deepened into
hopeless despondency. What cared she for these lofty thoughts floating from the
platform. How could she sing The Skylark when her voice could soar no higher
than her spirits! Next came the period of pyschological problems. Yes, she surely
was a visualizer, for did she not see before her that window sill in the hall? But
those forty-five minutes passed too. She rushed down the hall to the cloak room
elbowing her way to her locker. She flung it open with a clang, grabbed her coat,
jammed her hat over her head, snatched her gloves, left her books and away she
sped. The house seemed never so far away, her feet seemed to track backward in-
stead of forward. Up the steps she went, two at a time, threw open the door, and
again looked at that window sill in the hall. Then the hot tears rolled down her
cheeks as she stumbled up the stairs. She thought of her room-mate. Oh, she
must not make her miserable too. But despite all attempts to choke back the tears
and force a smile, she was still a dismal-faced woe begone Junior.
Her Wretchedness grew with each moment that afternoon. There were draw-
ings to finish and notes were due. What more! Returning a book to the library she
came face to face with that long row of history books. Yes, she could just feel John
Adams staring at her. But a stranger charm than his, an irresistable thread, was
drawing her back to her room, back to the window sill in the hall. She did not
hurry now. She would get there sooner or later, she cared not how or when. List-
lessly she opened the door, resolving not even to look at the window sill. But look
she must. Yes, there it was-that long, long looked for letter from home-the
letter on the window sill in the hall. AGATHA SCHNEIDER.

HE Aspiring Soul entered the wide gate and followed the White Way up to
the door of the House of Wisdom. Others were trooping across the
threshold, guarded by the keeper at the door, in his spotless white,
whose eyes were taking note of the feet of the passers. The Aspiring
Soul looked downward instinctively as she stood on the door mat. The
others were loaded with books but in hand were umbrella and rubbers. Pausing a
moment, she pondered, but only a momentg the white coated figure had glanced at
her feet aind something went into the glance that impelled her to stoop and remove
the innocent and dripping rubbers.
Hurrying up the wide stair case she thoughtlessly traced her way on the wall
with a pencil. It was quickly discovered for in the assembly which followed, the
spirit of Good Order told how he had been summoned to decipher the pencil marks
on the wall and of the indignant surprise which had followed. Loudly and much
did the Good Spirit decry the offense as the basest injustice. Fain would the As-
piring Soul have fled from the presence of stern and awful rebuke but being hemmed
in by the many about her sank down in her seat ashamed and uneasy. Glad when
the Assembly dispersed she hurried to her seat in the Hall of Study.
It was the hour she must spend in conning the fissures and fibres and the trans-
verse segments of the cuneous convolutions. But in this place she was pledged to the
best of behavior. Soon through the hall came the Idle Stroller under no written bond
of behavior. Soon a lively conversation ensued from the whispers and louder grew
the tones and the laughter. Smartly a rap on the door at the rear and they turn to
behold the Spirit of Good Order. Suddenly a consciousness of their own disorder
seemed to be breathed from his very presence. Then he asked for the pasteboard
card on which is printed the pledge and name of the owner. The Idle Stroller was
obliged to admit his transgression and after a fruitless search the Aspiring Soul gave
hers up for lost. Meekly and humbly they asked to be pardoned. The Spirit of
Good Order withdrew the privilege of sitting in the Hall of Study. What should
the Aspiring Soul do now, no seat to call her own, so Where to sit while she pondered
the "mental activities." But the Idle Stroller len-t her aid by suggesting "Library."
So next day she found a pleasant location not too near the Place of the Silent
Watchers. There had been no agreement of conduct here, Might she not venture
a remark to her nearby co-laborer? Remark followed remark and then a loud titter
was heard from the corner. A sharp tap on the table roused them and they saw the
frown and foreboding air of disaster on the face of the Silent Watcher. Everywhere
was orderg its spirit prevailed all over. But the giggling mirth was beyond control
and so the two sought a moment of solitude in the hall near the door beyond which
presides the Spirit of Good Order. For a moment or two the sound of voices held
sway. Then a "Sh-!" sounded out from the door-way where stood the Saint, one fin-
ger uplifted for silence. Flushing, the offenders hastily retreated to the Locker Room
Where SOIDB C0UVeHient ledges aiforded seats.
Here they decided to sit on the morrow. Here they hoped to escape the Guard-
ians of Order. When, then they had come from learning of locks and canals they
betook themselves here to prepare their problems in Numbers. But this required
discussion and their voices were raised above a whisper. But what did that matter here?
:Then a voice was heard above their own, "This .is not the Hall of Study, nor is this

the Library. "What do you here?" Silent and fearful they stood again in the pres-
ence of the Saint. Everywhere, everywhere, order! They again betook themselves
to the Library and with her book upside down the Aspiring Soul thought on the
things which had happened. Truly, she must be silent everywhere here. Why in the
Assembly which followed did the Spirit of Good Order always talk about her?
But at last it was over. Perhaps after all no one else knew of whom he had
spoken and with a skip and a slide on the smooth marble Hoor she gained the room
of Numbers, just in time to meet the exclamation, "Good heavens, what next?" and
she knew in a moment the presence and at once she forgot all her Numbers.
That evening to forget all her troubles she went to see the pictures that move
with the friend of her heart who "wasn't busy." Cares were forgotten until on the
return home she was told of a caller-the Adviser of Youth-who was disturbed at
her absence. She had said it was out of Order. Next morning when the telephone
rang in the class of Mental Activity, she was requested to appear at the oflice of Wis-
dom. It was here she learned of her narrow escape of worse judgment, and the Ad-
viser of Youth pointed out her shortcomings. At last after pleadings and promise
she is released to tune her spirit to harmonize with that of Order, without which she
can find no rest.
Now wherever she goes into Halls, Libraries or Locker Rooms, even in Theaters,
Homes or Schools, there is a very atmosphere of Order about her. The Aspiring Soul
even lifts a finger in warning to others, or breathes forth a Sh-I to the thought-
less. She removes her rubbers on 'entering a street car or restaurant and never goes
out after seven-thirty unchaperoned. '
B1-:ssm DE WITT,
When you're talkin' in the locker rooms,
So's they can hear you 'way upstairs,
And 'stead of studyin' in the Study Hall,
You sit whisperin' 'round in pairs,
You'd better stop that noisy chatter,
You'd better think and mind your way,
Er you'll meet the Spirit of Order
And "Sh-sh!" you'll hear him say.
When you use Gen'ral Ex. for studyin',
Not helpin' with songs that are sung,
When you go chatterin' down the hall,
Just after the last bell's rung,
You'd better stop those thoughtless actions,
You'd better think and get your cue
For the Spirit of Order is watching,
And "Sh-sh!" he'll say to you.

OW, the buzzing bells, having held their noisy tongue-s for the whole of
forty-five minutes, break forth in a nerve-racking chorus announcing the
close of the fifth period and the beginning of the sixth. Now, those priv-
ileged few who constitute the class in analytical chemistry hie them-
selves down to the Chamber of Horrors, known to the unsophisticated
as merely the chemistry lab., to dabble for two periods in "unknowns" Now, the
class having assembled, the instructor gives directions in stentorian tones, after which
he retires to his sanctum sanctorum where he concocts mystifying mixtures, presently
issuing forth to present them to the pupils to analyze. Now the oil cloth apron, black
and shiny, and serving as a sort of back-stop for omnivorous chemicals, is donned,
fastening with two long strings tied in a rakish bow beneath the owner's ear, and the
work of devastation begins. Now is heard a great babble of voices like unto a meet-
ing of the Ladies' Aid Society, and there is much running to and fro as the young
would-be chemists arm themselves with countless bottles of evil-looking solutions with
which to begin assault upon the unknown. Now begins a lengthy process of boiling
and stirring and scraping, interrupted occasionally by the crash of a hot piece of
glass as it falls from the hand that unwittingly picked it up. Now the joy of the ener-
getic maid who has spent much valuable time in boiling out and filtering is turned to
deep pain when the bottom of her test tube containing the precious liquid falls out
and the contents meander in a muddy rivulet down the front of her desk. Now the
unfortunate student who has failed to keep one eye on a near neighbor juggling with
sulphuric acid finds herself minus a portion of her sleeve. Now another aspiring young
chemist having left a baker containing her unknown solution to boil while she seeks
to extract some information from her neighbor, makes the discovery, too late, that
her solution has boiled over and as a result a series of fireworks resembling an ani-
mated Fourth of July celebration is transpiring.
Now the hydrogen sulphide generator with many a snort of malicious glee,
resumes its odious occupation and sends great quantities of indescribable aroma up
into the library. Now, We know that the librarian, enjoying a brief tete-a-tete with the
new Ladies' Home Journal, is compelled to pause and make a tour of the library,
opening every window and pronouncing anathemas against chemistry classes in gen-
eral. Now, too, the unwary student en route for the mathematics room via the
lower hall, comes to a dead halt and betakes himself by a long circuitous route to his
destination, preferring to do this rather than to expose himself to the danger he scents
in the air. Now the locker room, the rendezvous for certain uninstitutionalized peo-
ple not attending classes, is a "place not to be thought of." Now the air in the
laboratory itself becomes redolent with the odor of ammonia, and the student who
is near a window is in luck. Now the combination of several unknowns plus a small
amount of energy in the form of heat produces a geyser resembling Old Faithful,
disfiguring the ceiling and the raiment of those in the immediate vicinity. Now the
atmosphere is dense and a white smoke fills the room so that objects in close prox-
imity to one are obscured from sight and the right hand seeth not what the left hand
doeth. Now the process of breathing is carried on with much difficulty and there is
a great noise of coughing and choking. Now the instructor sniifs the air with hap-
piness supremeg he is in his element. And now, when it would seem that another
five minutes would see the complete extermination of every student in the room,
comes another peal of the bells-oh, welcome sound!-and in the ensuing stampede
for the door and fresh air, the tribulations and disasters of the afternoon are, for
the time being, forgotten. CELESTIA YOUKER.

On a Sunday April morning
When the sky and grass and flowers,
And the river and all Nature
Were awaking from their slumbers
And their winter-long sequester,
Down upon the old Kishwaukee
'Floated lightly on the surface
A canoe of wonderous framework
Called the Midget, made of canvas.
From the bridge beside the campus
Just above the blue-topped forest,
Just before the mighty woodlands
Sped the boat upon the river.
In the bow, with paddle lifted,
Sat a mighty pale-face chieftain,
Big Chief Whitten-you all know him-
Cause of all the evil odors
That outpour from 'neath his casement
And disturb the busy readers.
As the boat approached the woodland,
As it neared the thick Anne woodland,
And new scenes thus spread before them,
Turned and spake the mighty chieftain
To the squaw who sat behind him,
And who likewise bore a paddle,-
'fSee, my dear, these mighty forests '
The abode of our ancestors,
Who so many years before us
Roamed among the stately pine trees."
But the squaw now lost in wonder,
Spake not once nor winked an eye-lash,
But with look both mild and patient,
Viewed the Water of the riverg
Saw the muskrats disappearing,
And the heron go afrogging,
Just as she had seen before this-
Seen upon the Illinois.

Past the links so green and lengthy
Where the rusty water enters
From the south into the river,
Past the shady parent depths

Not till then did either gesture,
Nor converse, nor even Whisper
For the magic of the river
Filled their hearts with tense excitement.
Then they paddled to a landing
'Mongst the rushes of the river,
And the chieftain packed the Midget-
Packed the Midget on his shoulders,
And they turned their faces homeward.
To the interurban railway,
Stalked the Chieftain and his woman,
And the car soon brought them homeward
To their tepee by the Normal
Where their children had been guarding.
Eagerly, thus spoke the Chieftain,
To his closely-gathered family,-
"There is much potassium chloride,
Oh, my children, in the river,
And the sulphur kills the fishes,
Kills the fishes and the minnows.
But, however, it is similar
To the river I once traveled.
I have told you very often
Of the Illinois river
Which I sailed for many seasons.
'Tis the same as this you live on.
Hark my children, to the bustle!
I must leave you now a moment,
For I hear the chickens calling,

The important air which the faculty wear as they take their way, on
Tuesday evenings to the faculty meeting, may lead you to think that they
are the head. But when you observe closely, the hurried look and the
hastening step, tell you that they are taking orders from the real head.
You would have harder work convincing the Seniors that they are not
running the school. Perhaps a Freshman would tell you that the lady in
smiles and pretty dresses who gives orders to all who enter the office, is
the head- And though you find her a friend in need and a shelter from the
storms of wrath, she really isn't the head of affairs.
Who is the head then? Who is it that tells the Freshmen when it is
time to stop giggling and time to tell their troubles in Biology to Miss
Mann? Who is it that tells the Juniors that Psychology is over for another
day? - Who is it that tells the Seniors they must hurry lest they miss the
very session of the School Management class which will enable them to
make next year a career for themselves? Who is it thfat tells us all when it
is time to preserve the silence of the tomb in the Library? Who is it but
the Big Clock which keeps Mrs. Lund company? Every time that he says
"Pooh," the long minute hands jump forward a minute. When he rings
the bells, students rush out of the doors, in at the doors, into the Library,
out of the Library, through the Library-students everywhere. And they
are all talking at once, having a recess which would satisfy even Mr.
Lyon at a society meeting. The faculty, having dismissed one class with
a sigh of relief, get their charts and their smiles ready for the next one.
Or, perchance, one whose classes for the day are over calls at the oflice to
see Dr. Cook. But, lo! even he obeys the mandates of the Big Clock and
has gone to keep his appointments at its behest. But the real head greets
you with gentle courtesy, and as you turn to him you wonder why you
have never noticed before the letters of gold which tell you he is the Mas-
ter Clock. He it is who becomes the head of the school every morning
when Mrs. Lund turns on the bells. ADELINE EPLING.

some shy maiden has vainly sought in every nook and corner, he will call
after her retreating form, "But, oh, I say, isn't there anything I can do

Just at this point the Little Mogul himself appears on the scene and

Ps Zliairg Stun-g
Long, long ago in the time of feudalism during the unwholesome dark ages, there
lived a handsome, dashing, fastidious prince and a beautiful princess. This prince
dwelt upon a large estate in a magnificent palace surrounded by gardens that were
more beautiful than any you or I have ever seen.
On this day a host of retainers to the prince were assembled in readiness to
accompany him. Betty, the beautiful roan horse in the front rank is without a mount.
How restless she is! Now champing at the bit! Now pawing the air with her
hoofs. Now raising her noble shaped head into the air and whinnying.
But why are all these men and horses kept waiting? Simple enough is the
solution when you remember that the prince is fastidious. Three times have breath-
less attendants hurried and scurried to change his coat of mail, each time bringing
forth a new suit of arms. Doubtless the armor would please but the tie would not
suit and consequently the mail would be cast aside with the tie. Finally an ar-
rangement was made that pleased Prince William, for that is the name of our
prince. "At last," he said to himself, "everything is to my liking. Three times
have I changed my costume. My princess surely ought to like my appearance today
and especially my tie."
At last the weary, waiting throng was rewarded. At last Betty had a mount no
less proud and spirited than she.
Long before the procession was ready to start from Prince William's estate,
the beautiful princess ascended the stairs to the watch tower of her castle. In vain
did she cast her glance about the road for a glimpse or sign of a cloud of dust that
would indicate the approach of Prince William. "I do hope he won't be late," she
thought, "for I have promised father never to receive a prince that was not punc-
tual." As she caught no sign of the approach of the prince, she glanced at the sun
dial on the battlements. The story it told was a sad one for Prince William. It
was a quarter past four. He had promised to be there at four sharp. How dared
he be even a second late when he came to see her? She went down the winding
stairway and flitted across the lawn to be at the entrance of her castle when Prince
William should arrive. When she reached the ,gray imposing draw-bridge that
guarded the entrance to her father's estate she again thought of her promise. Oh,
if she could only retract those words. Retract them! She might as well attempt
to make those old gray battlements tell the story of their many sieges.
At least she would hear his explanations. A gentle knocking informed her
that he had come. "Prince William, why were you late?" she called in an injured
Prince William related in detail his efforts to please her. After considering for
a moment she very quietly said, "Prince William, if you think more of the exact-
ness of your attire than you do of keeping me waiting, then you may go."
Arguments were useless. Prince William walked away from her slowly, down-
cast and sad. "If I had only been satisfied with the first arttire my servants put on
me," he murmured, HI don't know but that it was the most becoming after all.
Still this tie does look the best. Alas, that of which I was most proud, is that
which causes my undoing."

Two girls with open books in their hands walked slowly down the
"I haven't looked at this," one seriously remarked, as they passed
into the recitation room.
"I hope he won't call on me today," said the other, "I couldn't tell
a thing about it."
There "he" sat with his big class book on the desk before him and
his pen in his hand, all ready to begin. The girls took their places with
an anxious air and fearful glances in the direction of the seat of
authority. The last bell rang forth its summons and "he" announced
briskly, "Take the first topic Miss Apt."
Miss Apt struggled through her topic, managing to consume four
minutes and 'fhe" made a commentary which lasted three minutes.
"Now," breathed the anxious girl-ebut he began on the opposite side of
the room and she settled back comfortably in her seat. Listlessly she
listened to one recitation after another, glancing at the book now and
then, until all at once she heard, "Miss Lackstudy, what was the nature
of scholasticism ?"
She sat upright and looked at the clock-just ten minutes left.
Usually after Miss Lackstudy came Miss Kant, Miss Meander and then
herself. Would he get to her in the ten minutes? If Miss Lackstudy
would only talk a long time! But she is saying, "I just studied that
far,"-she is giving up, she isn't going to talk at all-one minute gone
-oh, Miss Kant, make it five minutes-but Miss Kant canit recite-two
down-one minute and a half gone. And the hands of that clock-are
they caught on three minutes of ten? "Well," she thinks despairingly,
"I'm in for it."
'Volunteers on this," "he" says.
What's that? Volunteers? New hope! There's the first bell-it makes
her jump and she laughs nervously. One minute after ten and Miss
Meander is reciting. What a good thing it is that Miss Meander talks so
slowly and all around Robin Hood's barn! Four minutes after ten-
now she's safe. Safe? Oh, no,-"That will do, Miss Meander. Now,
Miss Repentance tell about the development of scholasticismf'
Desperately she looks furtively at the clock-one-half minute-
tremblingly she arises, "Well," she begins, at the same time remember-
ing that "he" dislikes to have anyone use "well" and "why" when recit-
ing, "Why, scholasticism developed for a few centuries fglance at the
clock-ten-five-what if the bell shoulldn't ring?J until it flourished-"
Oh, friendly bell! Had she ever accused that bell of jarring on her
sense of harmony? Had she ever wished it muffled? It was all a mis-
take, and she wished the bell to understand that she meant no harm.
"But tomorrow," she thought, "Ill have my lesson if I have to sit
up all night to get it."

HIGH tower rises from the center of the Normal building. At
the foot of the tower is the porte cochere and beneath the porte
cochere stands the President's automobile. Every morning,
whether snow or shine, we hear a deep purring in the distance
and presently up the hill comes rolling a black car with a loud
exhaust and, after making a graceful circle comes to a panting stop
beneath the arch. The President springs forth, opens up the throttle
to the limit and, after numerous roars and grunts from the car, he is
satisfied and shuts off the engine. Then he tenderly wraps up the radi-
ator in a blanket, if it be winter, and disappears through the door.
It can hardly be believed that the President's car has ever had a rival
but in one case something very like a rival appeared. During the win-
ter the President's car was attacked by the grip and was laid up for
some weeks. The very next day after the news had been announced
a little insignificant go-cart of a car was seen only a few paces from the
porte cochere. Next morning it was a little nearer, and at last took its
position furtively beneath the arch. At the end of the week it was giv-
ing a fair imitation of the voice of the President's car. But its dream
of power was short livedg one morning as it made its way joyfully up the
hill it heard a terrible roar behind it. It had barely time to creep around
a corner when the President's car dashed by and now the little car never
ventures nearer than a block.
We all know the tale of the whizz buggy. When the President's car
was young there may have been some question of the right of way, but
now the whizz buggy is content to take its humble station at the corner.
The Superintendent of Schools approaches in his Chinese Mercedes.
He may have all the appearance of bravery in General Exercises, but
now his courage fails him and he stops short at about fifty feet. There
is no question in the minds of these simple-hearted ones for the porte
cochere is the President's prerogative.

F you have been at all observing you will have noticed before now how every
person who takes up a special course enrolls therein for a special reason, and
that these reasons are characteristic of the people themselves, good or bad.
But nevertheless they are the fundamental motives for embarking on any par-
ticular rosy path to knowledge and ultimately, wealth.
In music one would naturally think there were enough sensible reasons for its be-
ing an object of attentive consideration without any recourse to such reasons as some
of the following. But judge for yourself.
One usually quiet and modest girl says, "I like Mr. Annas. I think he is just a
dear. Anyway, I always did like to sing, even in school."
"I took the music course because I like it and I expect to teach it." A sensible
answer and far different from most.
"You see I need the exercise I get in running up and down the stairs between
the music room and the Training School."
"I might get to play for General Ex."
The same irrational trend can also be observed in Public Speaking, an art of

For Freshmen: Fair except for occasional spasms of concern for

For Faculty: Calm, clear weather. '
SUMMARY OF WEATHER CONDITIONS
A storm area has just passed which affected the Seniors. Theses
and History of Education made up the principal disturbance. A storm
similar to the one affecting the Freshmen last fall is now prevailing in
Junior Province. The center is the grammar department. Veritable tor-
nados are reported at some observation stations. These are accompan-
ied by sudden changes in temperature.
A storm is approaching from the southwest which may affect Fresh-
man territory. Warning is hereby issued that all Secrets of the Fresh-
man play shouid be carefully protected, lest they be blown into surround-

READINGS OF THE GENERAL EX. BAROMETER I
When the large brown horn is the most conspicuous thing on the
platform, one or two Victrola records will be heard. When a stranger
is seated in the front row on the faculty side, a talk will probably follow.
The amount of time stolen from the third period depends upon the fame
and courage of the speaker. When the central section is occupied by the
Training School children almost anything may be expected. When the
choir fail to take their proper places on the platform and are called for-
ward a very short song may be executed. When the little green book
appears the students may listen in peace to the fortunes of Jean Mitchell.
All notices, exhortations, songs or stunts are ended for that day.
fNote: To interpret the barometer correctly one year's exper-
ience is required. Exceptionally brilliant students may be able to gener-
alize at the end of two terms.J

Pictures at the Haish now and then,
Home spread in a room-mate's deng
Then to bed on a bumpy cot
To dream off and on of our hard lot.
It's a life where difficulties run
Forever interspersed with fun,
For what we've learned in all this clatter
We shall' ever thank you, Alma Mater.
In the class room did you ever find
Facts without an endless grind?
Say! did it ever strike you, Joe,
There are some things we ought to know?
Did you ever in Biology "Lab,"
Biff at the organs of a crab?
Doesn't it seem to you, Juliet,
'This little knowledge you ought to get?
When you come to History of Ed.
And sit engrossed by a blushing co-ed,
Wake up or else you'll have to go-
For theories of Bacon you must know.

Bill Anderson-he lost his coat,
A great calamity!
He couldn't find it anywhere
As far as he could see.
He looked around the Kilmer Club
And in the Kishwaukeeg
But not the very slightest trace of
Could he see.
Now Bill became quite angry
When he got in this plight.
The day was cold and Bill was hot,
Just mad enough to fight.
His troop of gallant followers
He put upon the trail,
The search proved unsuccessfulg
Our hero, Bill, grew pale.
At last he looked upon the porch,
Not with expressions mild,
And there he found the treasure,
With joy he grew wild.
One flying leap made through the air
And Bill was safely landed
Right at the spot where his best coa
Was on a door mat stranded.
Bill Anderson went gaily home.
But this is not the last.
Disasters from this deadly joke
Came in both thick and fast.
That night the telephone did ring
And bad news did it tell,
Bill said that he had lost his wealth,
Which out the pocket fell.
And then the girls took up the search,
But nothi-ng could they flndg
How they could lose Bill's money
Was what filled every mind.
And then they looked upon the mat,
To find Bill's affluence,
And there they found our hero's wealth,
Consisting of three cents!

A pernicious proclivity of Normal students Which, if allowed to develop,
would plunge the club managers into financial oblivion.
A deplorable malady very common to nearly all aspirants for member-
ship in N. I. S. N. S. alumni. The first symptoms appear shortly after
enrollment and develop rapidly. Upon entrance to classes the victim is
attacked by spasms of fear and trembling and has an oppressive lugu-
brious physiognomy. In this state 'he lingers indefinitely. The approach
of the crisis is announced by an inordinate loquacity and in some Seniors
even approaches mellifiuent prolixity.
DANGLING PARTICIPLE- l
Rhetorical elegance, indicative of a highly developed imagination, a genial
poetic temperament, and astounding boldness of poetic genius,-especially
desirable in theses.

What shall I do with a fiaky complexion? It simply will not stick to my face.
My nose gives me the most trouble. Fay says it's always shiny.
The root of your difficulty seem to be in a badly mixed composition. Try the fol-
lowing receipt: Two cups of rose tinted calsomine, two tablespoons of starch for
stiifening, one cup of Mr. Vaughn's special non-slip belt dressing to make it adhere,
one-half cup of sulphur for a dull finish and ten drops of Lily of the Valley eiferves-
cense for flavoring. Mix with two cups of water and' apply with a camel hair brush.
This is guaranteed not to flake and I think Fay will like it better. I
I have been afflicted with a strange malady, which is consuming my very anat-

loves me only for my auto. Should this be true-oh, faithless one-my heart strings
would be torn beyond repair, and I fear that I, oh, youth of love and happiness,
should atrophy, oh, dismal fate, and disappear. How can I test her?
I fear that fast speeding has sorely affected you, for you are indeed, a bug.
Drive your girl a long distance from home some time-say, Cortland or Malta, have
a breakdown and tell her she must walk back. If she refuses she loves you not.
Should she consent she loves you. Then take her home on the train or fix the auto.

MEMBERS OF THE POMP CLUB.
Curly Pomps-Bob Lascelles, Windy Baker.

Bristly Pomps-Sam Ostergard, Walter Gassman.
Bald Pomps-Oscar Fowler, Mr. Lyon.
Qbm' Hump Zilnast
Here's to the pomps so handsome,
Here's to the pomps so rare.
Here's to the pomps so curly-
Made of masculine hair.
Here's to the pomps so shiny,
Here's to the pomps so grand.
Here's to the pomps so slippery-
Seen on every hand.
Here's to the pomp so bristly,
Here's to the pomps so bewitched,
Here's to the pomps so unruly,
That our dear boys all try to ditch.
Here's to the pomps so scanty,
They scarce have a hair in at all.
Here's to the pomps that are withered,
And here's to the pomps that are bald.
Then here's to all pomps so common,
Be they shiny, askant, slippery or bald,
Some do on the level look much like
But our boys must be in it, that's all.

7. The condition of Martin O'Brien
seems to grow continually worse. We
wonder if he will really ever settle down.
8. Mr. Page spruces up the hall with
maps, documents, museum treasures, etc.
Among the contrivances, a new device

the halls in a semi-conscious condition,
in the right direction and thereby puts
himself in a frame forever.

i'Leaving? The lady with grace in her
Say that the rumor's ungrounded.
She-who directs our frolics so gay,
Plans for our parties and helps while away
Hours in the happiest manner?
Somebody stop her and tell her to stay.
Mlaybe she'l1 not be hard-hearted.
If she but knew that the time-s we have had
Made all our work more carefree and glad,
Then surely she'd not be a-going.
