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.

It says that shepherds were watching Rf C' their flocks by night when suddenly an angel ap- if SP pcared to them and a noontide glory shone round QM N about them. He had come to tell them that a little X A babe was born who should transform the world and X ' X bring ineffable peace and joy into its tumult and fx Ny yy strife. When he had spoken, celestial choirs filled f fix the sky with rapturous singing. Q XJ' N 7 Y ,I they found him cradled in a manger because there was no room for one of such humble estate in the inn. And ever since the world has heard the story, the If' teacher whose heart is quick to answer to the call X of the loving spirit of the universe has fancied P iz? V that again the angels of the night might be singing ' when a little babe was born, even though he might be cradled in a manger because there was no place for one of such low estate in the inn. The vision 3 has crowned each of the little ones to whom he 2 y ol Ci X' may be privileged to minister with a new and " w l beautiful dignity and sacredness. K JOHN COOK.

A glistening whiteness had mantled each object- The terraces, river, each tree far and near.

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.

H , I n I ,when mill' Buses Elnnm Their beautiful soft, soft petals unfold in the dewy May, To the glories of the spring-tide, they add their bright array, ' The breezes softly stirring, their fragrance waft along, 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 drop down, All hues and tones, the softest, in their velvet fiowers abound, And the world seems far more lovely, When our roses bloom. Their colors bravely greet us, after other blossoms fade, 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 the world, When the twigs and thorns and branches are with glistening ice impearled, The redness of the rose-hips stands out against the snow, And we know that though 'tis winter Our roses still may bloom.

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 And a-" But she never finished, 'For the other had her say,- "Oh, Why doesn't ev'ry teacher Take the only Way?"

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. Page Number Thirty 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? RUTH PHELPS.

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." MILDRED CAMPBELL EDGAR, '09 --Q N net n Eh risen if Wg .QVOJQ 0 ?

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.

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 ago. 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 attack. 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 some "chicken!" 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- SPORTING REVIEW 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- se . 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 months. 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 ago. 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? WIl,LIAM R. BAKER. 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. R. FERRIS. 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 scars. PAUL MOON. SPORTING REVIEW 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 half. Between halves both teams took a good rub down and were fed "dope" consist- ing of stuffed turkey, plum pudding and salad dressing. 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 line. 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. JESSE DONYES. Coaches' Want Ads A movable prop for Bill. Two or three crabbers for the 1913-14 basket ball team. The suppression of minstrelsfThey're fatal to practice. A toy sprinkler to settle the disputes between "Chet" Littlejohn and Ferris. To see a board walk from the dress- ing room to the football field to keep our shoes clean. A good coach to train the boys in drop kicking. A megaphone large enough for Linde- man to use in telling us he dropped the ball. An embroidered pillow to rest on when keeping the baseball score. Wawfcrl-Anything but advice. A day, without a critique, for base- ball pi'actice. The adoption of shovels for bats before the Northwestern game of 1914. A valet for Jenks. A pair of football shoes large enough for Guy. A label for Griffin. For the nursery-the baseball lost in the brush on Port's face. All bids, for the construction of Donyes' belt, in by September 1, 1913. A competent competitor for carrying bats, as Ferris is loafing on the job. Bill's Troubles Oh, I beg your pardon, old man, I'm awfully sorry Pauly Oh, please excuse me Mr. Wirtz, For missing that low ball. Gee, but this here glove is rank, Too bad my finger's sore, If my right leg was not so stiff, I know that I would score. That pitcher hasn't anything, But the sun got in my eye, Or I'd have made a home run sure Instead of a pop fly. Bob Lascelles is a kind-hearted chap. He felt sorry for the Dixon fellows and tried to be-tter conditions by donating his raincoat. The Beloit fellows grew suddenly hilarious as the Normal fellows trooped on the, field. When asked the cause of their joy, they said, "We know the game is ours, because Horan, the heavy half back of Cortland College, is not here." Too bad we didn't Nellie along, eh? i .

"I hope they'll let me in at home. I'm so tired! But it's hard to tell. I wish I didn't have to answer their questions. I don't want to wander around the earth for another term. And anyway, it wasn't my fault at all," he concluded angrily. 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- dents. 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?" "I am? 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. "Your attendance?" "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 Summer Term. The interruption was not heeded and slowly, slowly, the great gates be- gan to swing open. Relief was evident in the Fall Term's face and the Genii inside the walls nodded their approval of the things that had been reported. , Page Number Szxty-two 7 -f 7---W - .A 5, 31: -W ...fi Nineteen Uhitteen , 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 again. "You ask too many questions," said the Fall Term severely. "I-I just wanted to know what stunts you had," the Summer Term whimpered. "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 for the chil-" "Answer my question! Did you have any stunts?" The gates were now motionless. "We-e-ll, we-e-ll-" "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. JENNIE A. WHITTEN.

This picture was taken early in the .:gg-.1-eg:11g:::Lt::::-.- morning and my companion and I were '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.

To reach this room we passed up a flight of stairs and down a long hall, carefully picking our way between over-turned waste baskets, cheese-baited mouse traps, and sticky fudge spoons and platters. The Club Dining Room. Because of the extreme confusion and hilar- ity, was unable to get a good photograph. My last picture is of one of the young women loiterers and her faithful companion. I hardly had the effrontery to disturb so pleasant a little scene as their meeting was. The coloring is not good. The artist declared he was not able to procure a tint such as I described, but the scar- let, blood-orange crimsonness on the right is the young girl's hair. The same color is echoed in her wonderful eyes. Garbed brown as she is, she seems a walking symphony of harmonious hues.

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: "Goodnight, Gentlemen, Goodnight, Gentlemen, Goodnight, Gentlemen, 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.

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 songsters abundant, 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 campus. 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.

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 front. 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 honors, in contests, with your predeces- sors.

Page Number Seventy-three SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW Notes From the Court Reporter's Journal First Women Jurors - Intense Interest Prevailed 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 Page Number Seventy-four 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 exile. 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. ON SATURDAY NIGHT Hear the merry clatter Upon Normal Hill! Young and old together, Laughing, never still. Troubles of the Week Are forgotten quite, Everyone is happy- Saturday night. When the meeting opens In the Music Hall, All grow strangely silent, Waiting for the call To read a lengthy paper Someone else did write, Then shiver while the critic talks- Saturday night. THE PERSISTENCE OF A COLLECTOR A Brilliant Future Predicted for the Young Main. 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! HELEN BROOKS.

Page Number Seven ty-Eve 7 I .Ji V l Q SATURDAY EVENING REVIEW THE SPECTATOR 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 gymnasium. 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. NORMA K.

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 identity? What's the use of waiting for-Now she won't have to! Mrs. Ford has discovered them! She doesn't mind losing Ellen because she's found a new sister. I am glad everything is all right.

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.

HELEN MUN HALL q P ,p, iii, Nineteen Gilpin-teen A Sing, 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 the eye. 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 countenance. 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 o ers, 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 way. For we cannot but sing. HELEN BROOKS.

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. CLYDE L. LYON.

Page Number One hundred ive v Zi' 5 D I Uhr Nun-that 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.

We, the girls of the team far and wide spread its fame. It's a pretty good game. If you feel kind of wild, you can play it like fury, and then feel more mild, so you work in a quiet and calm sort of way, for you've had all the fun that you need for that day. Sometimes you're cross, if your practice is bad. If no one makes baskets, then each one is mad.

The Glidden colors waving are-the Elflwood hopes were drowned. 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. D! 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. CHARLOTTE A. SHEEHAN.

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 also- ' "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.

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 Unusual repose. 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 train, With one sad and longing cuss. "Were we really then so awful gay, Or did I dream it thus?"

THE FABLE OF THE FINANCIAL THEORY 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 Page Number 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- ble teaches us not to Keep all our Eggs in Olne Basket if we wish Them to Gather Moss. The inqulrer having a e- e - ualistic seance, propounded the following query: This serious question I sing, And to vou for an answer bring. Is it better to "Come Back" again in autumn Or to see the old place in the spring? Upon which the shade of Swinburne appeared to rebuke the perpetrator of such verse, and asked it i-n his own way, the shade of Tennyson replying: Like the lisp of leaves in the larches autumnal, When the frost-colored groves are most gay, Comes the call from the cla'n that is clearly alumnalg Shall I list to the longing today? Or when softly the song birds of summer are sighing, With a sense of the passing May, Shall I haste to those haunts, to the homecoming hying? An answer I pray. The reply: Bone, bone, bone, At my books eternally, I would that I could visit The place where I used to be. O, well for the Prof. who is teaching Not far from your ivied towers, O, well for the teacher who's married And forgotten his fussing hours. But the loyal ones "Come Back" Through October's balmy haze, Ind come again in springtime To spend commencement days. Bone, bone, bone, Or teach assiduously, But we shall be returning At each possibility, one ON THE FIRST MoNr1-rs --EARN" Thou still unsp-ended check of salary, Thou product of long hours of time, Promise of fortune, and alumna-3 hats to be, What inspiration thou givest to my rhyme, What-"Ho, varlet bring the hook."

I 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- Page Number One hundred twenty-two x-gf -11" . ...fl Nineteen iilhirtsen 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 himself in the heroic rescue of a fly,which with suicidal attempt, has tried to rid itself of this wide, wide, world in the golden bed of syrup. With a fatherly gleam in his keen eyes he balances the dazed creature up- on his index finger and advises it to go home and work out its salvation in a more rational way. The baby-blue eyes of tiny Moses ftrue kin of her ancestor of the bulrushesj peep out demurely from beneath their long lashes as if trying to divine how much of the shark student's discourse bordered upon irony and how much touched sarcasm. "Poor thing! It's trying to fly with its wings stuck together and one leg gone!" cries the scientific girl with pugilistic name. Happy Arnold sends out glimmers of humor from his blue eyes and hums in a decent undertone "Good-bye-Everybody." The f'ly has meanwhile succeeded in its attempt at flight, makes a drunken zig-zag path upward, only to fall, exhausted, upon my locks a la pompadour and there buzz away contentedly. Breakfast is over only too soon. But then all things have their compensations, for I signalled to Miss--, she of the golden hair and tran- quil spirit, for her permission to walk up the hill with her and received a wireless assent. It's truly queer how many varied and odd shaped pieces go toward piecing the patchwork quilt of life. MATILDA ANDERSON.

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' Page Number One hundred twenty-six I ap. -ll. Y Nineteen Glhirteen ,dlhapier Ewa 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. Page Number One hundred twenty'-seven - if 31112 Nnx-ther 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." ' i EMMA FoY. if . gm Q. T., 412, if 1 .

"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.

' DOROTHY WILLIAMS. Page Number One hundred thirty-two ,sy -1:'v Nineteen Zilhirteeu 6 6' 9 9 iii! 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 influence. 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 WK Page Number One hundred thirty-three - L , A k '-" Ellie Nnrthzr 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. KENNETH MCMURRY.

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.

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.

Page Number One hundred thirty-five - if s Q wg GIheNn1-that 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.

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 Page Number One hundred thirty-eight y 1 3 . 3, .11 Y fl Nineteen Glfhittnn 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, "Sh-sh!" 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.

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.

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.

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, For the corn and barley kernels."

But he is only Dr. Shoop looking to see if Madam Dirt is lurking anywhere, or perchance looking for the person who forgot to take OE his rubbers, tracked up the front hall and marked the walls with his pencil all the way upstairs. 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. Page Number One hundred forty-ffve 2' I gl Elie Nnrthn' lln the mnrkzhnp N the northern portion of the Normal home, between the domain ruled over by the "Dispenser of Grace," and that occupied by Jim Clark and his engines, lies a strip of territory presided over by a diminutive man in a dark coat whose pockets bulge with all sorts of data, whose step is short and quick, and who is also easily distinguished by his short exclamative chirp which some times broadens into a genuine cough. His chief annoyance comes from student teachers and others who run off with his paste pans. They are always asking, "Where is that man?" To this, a rather sedate personage in side-burns, pinch-nez, and discarded automobile coat, answers, "I don't see him anywhere." After 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 for you ?" Just at this point the Little Mogul himself appears on the scene and the would-be-assistant immediately fades into the convenient obscurity of the stair cabinet. Then an urchin from the room upstairs enters his wail, "Say, you, Bad Eye swiped my chewin' gum that I had stuck under my chair. If you don't make him give it up I'll-" "Well, never mind a little thing like that." This is interrupted by, "Say, the junk man is here and he wants to know if you 'godt any of dose copper and brass scrapts' for him!" "Tell him No-ol" Then taking advantage of a momentary lull, he seizes his unoffend- ing head covering which adorns a screen in the wood-shop and makes a hasty retreat. The department now is at the mercy of certain hare-brained fellows who often take advantage of his absence to impersonate him and thus work themselves into the good graces of unsuspecting people who come seeking advice. Oftentimes the situation is enlivened by bronzed athletes, the "Pride of Normal," as they wend their way in and out of the mysterious little door at the head of the stairs. WILLIAM BAKER.

BERTHA CRAMER. l. , Page Number One hundred forty-nine Y ' -if 1 A wg 61112 Nun-ther rinre william 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 tone. 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." DAVID COLE. Page Number One hundred fifty - ,gf .11 Y Nineteen Glhitteen Anxious iliinmentz Two girls with open books in their hands walked slowly down the hall. "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." MYRTA E. OSBORNE.

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. KENNETH MCMURRY. Page Number One hundred fifty-two i .

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 all arts that should be commendatory of high ideals. "I thought it might increase my vocabulary to the size of Mr. FOSSl6l',S.n 'tIt's a cinchf' "I want to get into the Senior play." 1This seems to be a favorite.J "It gives me poise and enables me to be a good mixer." fFrom a favorite with the gir1s.J One specialist in History voices himself and his ideals thus: "I want to be a politician of note in the Bull Moose party." In Biology and Science, likewise we find the same irrationalities observed in the other courses. "I just love field trips." "I expect to be a butcher some day and that course offers such opportunities." "I want to get a collection of bird eggs." tSounds like Pete.J Then the very idea of art, the sublime, the elevating, the edifying, being made to answer such questions as: "I take art because the class gets trips to Chicago." "The best course in 'the school to kill time." "To get my name on some designs in the Annual." fYou probably will. They take most anythingj "Because it requires natural ability and oifers so much room for improvementf, In Math. "I took mathematics as a special because it trains one to be so prompt with all engagements." QThis from an auburn-haired girl. Her voice had an in- spiring ring? Page Number One hundred fifty-six Y.

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.

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.
