Let your voices loudly ringing, echo far and near,
Songs of praise thy children singing to thy memiry dear.
Alma Mater! Alma Mater! tender, fair and trueg
Grateful sons with love uniailing all their vows renew.
Years'may dim our recollection, Time its change may bring,
Still thy name in fond affection, evermore we sing.

The -Iunior Class is composed of forty girls and thirty men: seventy of the
liveliest collegians on the campus. It is true that not mcre than twenty-five of them
have ever been together at a class meeting, but that is merely one of the signs of
a really great class. They just would not be herded around like Freshmen.
Among the girls of the class are some of the best "dates', in the college fin
deference to their modesty, no names will be mentionedj. It must be stated,
however, that the popularity contest for Tower Queen was won by the junior
candidate, Mabel Raines. Some few of the girls are already married. In those
instances the original assertion need be changed only to the past tense. If other
casualties occur the tense will be changed for them also.
The percentage of talented musicians among the girls is another matter of
pride to the class. Many of them are instrumental artists while three of them
are members of the College Sextette. Uthers of the girls have been interested
in literary societies, art work, and home economics.
In the male section of the class there is the usual run of geniuses, supermen,
prodigies, sheiks, cave men, eccentrics and squirrel food. CPiclc them out for
yourselfj. These men were to be found in every variety of the college move-
ments. A goodly share of them are athletes of no mean abilities, some are
leaders in forensic work in the school, and others are leading lights in dramatics.
Rumor says that some of them are ardent supporters of the "Don't" Club which
held regular meetings in the east gymnasium last winter.
All in all, it can be said that the class has made a great success of its junior
year. The annual circus was promoted by it. The circus has always been good,
but the one this year was especially lively. The class was also obliged to depend
partly upon its own resources to finance the publication of this annual. Fortunately,
there was enough good talent in the class to put across the comedy-drama, "The
Intimate Straiigersf, under the direction of Miss Dow.
At the time this book went to press, the class was planning a social function
for the entire college.

Changes in tlzv pcrsolzlzvl made at regular elections during the year: Floyd Cook was
succeeded by Russel Hamilton, Mabel Cobb 'by C. T, Richards, Leo Halasey by Sam Evans.
Harry Nelson by Ira Young, Jason Kemp tPres. in the fall xybo resigned to manage the
Towerj by Albert Wlilson.
The regimeiof the Council has existed less than two years but in that length of time
it has amply justilied its existence.
In addition to promoting efficiently the interests of the students before the administration
the Council has created a line spirit of constructive co-operation among the various organ-
izations and a strong enthusiasm among the students for the college. lt has upheld the
traditions of the college at all times.
It has alsof compiled and published a handbook designed to give newcomers enlightening
information concerning regulations, clubs, and traditions.
Upon this group of Juniors fell the task of compiling this year-book. ln all
sincerity, it has been no small undertaking. Time only can crown their efforts
with success or failure, but, be it failure or success, the only comment from the
Staff will be: "We did our best."
The Staff feels that it has the privilege making two suggestions which it
considers to be of paramount importance in future publication of the Tower. The
first is that the financing of the book be put upon a recognized and settled
basis that will leave the Staff free from worry over the financial success of the
enterprise. The second is that the cover, or at least the cover design, be stand-
ardized by the Student Council or by the student body.
To the seniors the Tower Staff presents this annual, the last one of their un-
dergraduate days. May it serve its purpose welll
To the Sophomores and Freshmen we present it with the hearty challenge to
surpass it. XVe sincerely hope they will.
The Y. M. C. A. has enjoyed a very successful year both in point of member-
ship and accomplishments. Regular weekly meetings were held at which the
members received the comforts of Scriptural reading, lectures, religious songs
Mr. Miller, Mr. Leeson, and Mr. Loomis, members of the faculty, have taken
active parts in the Work of the year. The members are unanimous in voicing
the fact that the association with these three men in the Y. M. C. A. has meant
much to them.
The organization has endeavored to develop Christian characters, to spread
the teachings of Christ, and to pro1n.ote the religious phase of education, for
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." It has done a good work
toward the establishing of Christian fellowship throughout the college.

The work of the Y. W. C. A. has been one of the most commendable and
interesting of the college activities. The two most laudable undertakings were
the Christmas party for the poor children of the city and the sending of seven
students and one faculty memlber to represent the college in the Ninth Student
Volunteer Convention at Indianapolis.
Besides these, the Y. W. girls had a "tally-ho" ride in honor of the new mem-
bersg sponsored the annual Hallowe'en Partyg served tea in the corridors during
the fall registrationg and held a tea at Residence Hall in honor of Miss Harriet
Reitfeld, a traveling Y. VV. C. A. secretary from China.
The purpose of the organization is fourfold: Clj To lead students to faith
through jesus Christ, Q25 to lead them into membership and service in the Christ-
ian church, C3j to build them up in Christian faith and character, especially
through the study of the Bible, and ULD to influence them to devote themselves,
in united effort with all Christians, to make the will of Christ effective in human
society and to extend the kingdom of God.

The Eastern Star Club was organized in November, 1921 by a group of girls who are
members of the Order of thc Eastern Star and who held a vision of the benefit such an
organization would be to the school and to its members.
The membership roll of the Club has increased since '21 and many good times have been
enjoyed. On some occasions the Masonic Club has joined in the activities of the Club.
However, in the midst of its social activities the Club did not forget its primary purpose
of being an asset to the college. It has succeeded in raising a fund for student loans to
which, from time to time, additions will he made.
The big social event of each year is the Eastern Star-Masonic Club banquet.
The members feel that the success of the Club is due largely to the guidance and ardent
efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Burt Loomis, sponsors.

The Newman Club, an international organization of Catholic students, was founded
at Oxford by Cardinal Newman. Tlhe aim of the Club is best expressed in 'these words of
Cardinal Newman: "lt is not then that Catholics are afraid of human knowledge, but
they are proud of divine knowledge, and they think the omission of any knowledge, what-
ever, either human or divine, t
o be, so far as it goes, not knowledge but ignorance."
Social events of the year were the annual banquet, the luncheon given for visiting mem-
bers during the meeting of the Teachers Association, and one formal entertainment each

Each year the Association gains numbers and strength by the graduation of
another class. With increasing numbers and strength the Association hopes to
meet the increasing demands with greater efhc-iencyfevery year. It is interested
in every movement its Alma Mater undertakes.
Un june third, the annual banquet and business meeting will take place in
Residence Hall. Only those who were not present last year will need urging to
attend this year.
A committee has been working to establish a permanent record of Alumni.
Another committee, in accordance with instructions given it at last year's busi-
ness meeting has arranged and advertised awards of five dollars each for the
best acceptable contribution in each of the following-lines of literary work: orig-
inal poem, short story, one-act play, and school song. The Association hopes to
receive contributions that will make it seem wise to continue these awards and
perhaps to offer others in other fields.

Excelsiors are true to the nameg they try to teach a higher standard of schol-
arship than they have had in the past. Their aim is ever upward and their aspir-
ation is to do something which will reach outside the Walls of their college, to do
something for humanity in general. Due to this broad spirit of community serv-
ice, they Won the pennant given by the Missouri Anti-Tuberculosis Society to
the organization in the college selling the most Anti-Tuberculosis Christmas seals.
Although they graciously admit defeat in the inter-society contests this year, they
do lay claim to first place in point of community service.
Excelsiors are in favor of all morally clean activities, but anything that de-
viates from that is at once denounced by them. They are sincere in their effort
to better their society and to live up to their great motto:

The Philomathean Literary Society with its traditional pep and spirit reor-
ganized in September ,23 for the fourteenth year of constructive service to pro-
mote efficiency in scholastic attainment, social service and co-operative leader-
ship through literary practice. Membership in the society is limited to thirty-six
persons. No new members are elected except those who are recommended by
the faculty for their talent and for their fine attitude toward college ideals. In
the initiation ceremony, the prospective Philomatheans explore the mysteries of
the garden of roses, the land of the Philo spirits, and brave the ordeals of the
ether and the branding iron.
The year 1923-24 will be long remembered in the Philo history. The red
letter event of each year is the annual inter-society contests. Ten years of friendly
rivalry among the societies have resulted in eight Philomathean victories in de-
bate. This year marks the third consecutive time the Philos have defeated both
the Eurekan and Excelsior teams in debate. Qther victories during the ten years
are eight in essay contests, four in oration, three in extemporaneous speaking,
and three in declamation.
Another event is the annual assembly program. The one given this year on
January 23 was a "miracle playi' in which St. Peter, presiding at the judgment
seat pronounced judgment on various college characteristics impersonated by
The annual "Homecoming" was instituted in 1914. It is held during the
meeting of the Northwest Missouri Teachers, .Association On this occasion,
Philos, past and present, do homage to the Philo Spirit of pep,-honor,.1deals,
loyalty, and optimism. Members who cannot be present send greetings which are
read to the Home-Comers.
The banquet which always follows the inter-society contests was given this
year as a farewell courtesy to Miss Dykes who went abroad to study and travel.
She ig 21 charter member of the society.
Other events were the May breakfast in the college park, the kid party, and

SOCIAL SCIENCE CLUB
Who? When? Wlzozzce? Uflziflzor?
XVho? VVhy, all those Cand morej on the opposite page, both individually and
collectively, especially Collectively four sloganj. The glimmering lights which
play among the faces are the peering eyes of others about to come in. We are
a very sensitive people, socially sensitive, not the pink tea type Cthough we use
the drug at timesb, but socially sensitive from the scientific point of view. We
have come to be possessed of an acute awareness of a social environment, wherein
social forces operate according to law. We are becoming conscious of the nec-
essity of a social consdmzcc, a social conscience for individuals, and a social con-
science for groups. We see justice to individual and to group, and hence progress
for the Race, attainable only through the operation of divers scientifically so-
cializing agencies. CNO, we are not socialistsj.
VVlien? Well, our birth-year is indicated thus. It was three years after the
birth of the League of Nations. It was one year before England and her first
Labor Government. It was five years after "Merrie England" gave her war-
weary women the ballot. It was six years after the Adamson Law went into
effect. It was three years after the Ninteentli Amendment to the United States
Constitution was proclaimed. It was one hundred years after the enunciation of
the Monroe Doctrine. It was 147 years after the Declaration of Independence
Cinserted for the benefit of the Freshmenj. Now, if you cannot figure it out,
join the Club. We specialize in such facts.
Whence? While we specialize as to social facts the story of our own evolution
seems to have eluded us. Perhaps the social origins of our group are so complex as
to baffie our immature powers of social diagnosis. Let's just say we sprang up
automatically. A great urge in the social world made our existence inevitable.
Whither? We are in the running where Social Education Cnot socialismj
competes with social chaos. Vlfe would visualize and practicalize social programs
in the light of the facts as revealed in Sociology, Eroatozniics, Gowriizmenfy, His-
tory and other Social Sciences. Through all that strata of society we should like
to see functioning a democracy that is clzostolzod, tutored, co-operative, respons-
ible, Into democracy's Galaxy of Hope we should like to place beside her star of
Liberty, the star of Service.
There is an ideal whither we tend, modestly. Afar, across the fields of the
Race, we see this as our Lode-star: HEAD, HAND, AND HEART EQUIPPED
WITH THE FACTS UF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES, VVE STRIVE
TOWARDS LIBERTY AND PRGGRESS THROUGH SGCIAL SERVICE.

Springfield was a strong contender for the championship. This was prob-
ably the 'best game of football ever played on the Maryville gridiron. Both
teams had a powerful offense and a stubborn defense. The Bearcats' touch-
down was made after a long march down the field by line plunges alternated
with end runs characterized by perfect interference. One of Springheld's
scores was made with a forward pass and the other was made by a twenty-
five yard run without interference through the very heart of the Bearcat

disagreeable surprise to everybody.

made against them in the first half. VV.ilson showed good generalship by
giving Westiniiister a safety, thus gaining possession of the ball on the

The membership of the M. I. I. A. was depleted at the close of the football
season by the withdrawal of the several denominational colleges to form a sep-
arate conference. This left only the five State Teachers Colleges in the M. I.
I. A. As a result the round robin style of schedule was used for the basketball
season. Two games were played with each school.
Tabor College was soundly drubbed in the first game of the season. The
Bearcats then gave battle to the mighty Hillyards, runner-up in the national
championship tournament last year. Their offense proved too strong and the
wearers of the green and white suffered defeat.
The conference began with a double victory over Cape Girardeau. The
Freshmen members of the team behaved like veterans. Next came the clash
with Missouri VVesleyang sweet revenge was taken for the defeat at VVesleyan's
hands last fall in football.
Then came the disasterous road trip. The first game at Kirksville was won
handily and then things began to go wrong. The second game with the Bulldogs
was lost by a two-point margin. The VVarrensburg Mules administered a double
defeat and the Bearcats came home to their lair, bruised and bleeding and with
championship dreams rudely broken. But the old-time fight was still within them.
In the last two games on the home court the men made a valiant attempt to
beat Springfield, the conference leader with a perfect record. The Bears took
both games but were forced to the utmost to ,do it. They eventually won the
The team won five games and lost six. Peoples scored 101 points, Ellis
scored 91. Bloomfield made 52, Aldrich made 57, and Fannon made 27. At the
close of the season Kirby was given a sweater with four stripes and a star. Ellis
and Bloomfield received sweaters with two stripes and Peoples and Aldrich re-
ceived sweaters with one service stripe.

There are two good reasons why his size is no handicap. One is that he
knows the game and the other is that he trains hard and faithfully. He
always gives the opposition plenty to worry about. S
RICHARD CVVICKEDD KIRBY, gufzfri.
His record is four years of high school basket ball and four years of college

The Cubs were organized at the beginning ot the basketball season with the
object in view of developing material for the first squad next year. The bunch
is composed mostly of Freshmen. Assistant coach, Howard Leech, had the task
of instilling into them a correct knowledge of how to play the game.
They played preliminary games to the conference games this season and
aroused considerable interest. The team was vanquished as often as it was
victorious, but the general results were satisfactory to the coaches.

There were thirty-six letter men in school this year. Of that number only
four have come into the Club since the fall quarter commenced. Masters and
Hartman each earned a letter in football and Peoples and Aldrich made their
letters in basketball.
The Club seeks to establish and perpetuate traditions in athletics in addition
to making records on the field of play.
Six members, Andrews, Richards, Runyan, Steiger, Kirby and Hayes, have
completed their careers as college athletes.

The enrollment in the classes for physical
education of women was very large this year.
All girls enrolled in any of the classes or who
wish to indulge in sports are members of the
Min-ni-chee-ock. The name is an Indian word
meaning "active girls." The organization is
three years old. The various departmental ac-
tivities ot the club this year were riding, tennis,
basketball, skating, swimming, aesthetic dancing,
and hiking. .
T The point system is used in awarding honors.
An emblem consisting of an M within a circle
to be worn on sweaters is given when 150 points .
are earned. A bronze medal is given for 225
points, a silver medal for 425 points and a gold f .
medal for 600 points. A gold seal is given to the f
girl who wins the distinction of being the most
versatile. The awards for work done this year
had not yet been made when this book was
The class in horsemanship was a new depart- MARY L' MSCLEOD'
ment of the club this year. The instructor was Coac
Major Rolf Raynor of Battery C. The mounts used were the property of the
Battery. Swimming was another new feature of the year. About 100 girls
took instructions in the sport last summer. A water fete was held late in the
summer. Two basketball tournaments were held in the course of the year. '
Fair weather and good Missouri roads made hiking a pleasure last fall. Hikes
were taken each week by the entire club and several interesting longer hikc
were taken by groups. Beatrice Leeper was the champion hiker for the season.
She earned 33 points. y U gp

The Kittycats have not been defeated in three years and are an outstanding
team in the state. It was a difficult task for Coach MacLeod to arrange a sched-
ule for them this year so well-known has their prowess become.
Miss MacLeod knows how to choose material and how to train girls. At
forwards she placed Mabel Raines and Lorene Bruckner. Evelyn Raines was
third choice at forward. At guards she placed Pauline Hardwick and Roberta
Cook. At center Captain Lola McNeal was stationed and Vera Clark vied with
VVinifred Thompson for the roving position in the center of the court. Naomi
Hood was used at forward in some of the games and did her 'bit in piling up
In the first game it at once became apparent that another game-winning
combination had been evolved. Mabel Raines exhibited all of her old-time dex-
terity and Lorene Bruckner went on a hilarious scoring spree in her first game
of college basketball. As a matter of fact the spree lasted until the close of the
season. She was high point scorer on the team. Mabel and Evelyn Raines were
second and third respectively. Cook and Hardwick were as great factors in pre-
venting the opponents from scoring as the forwards were in garnering goals.
At center, McNeal always started the ball in the right direction. Six games were
played this season and all were won by safe margins.
Team work to these girls meant machine work of the highest efficiency.
They obtained it by consistent training under the supervision of Miss MacLeod
and by hard, swift playing.
No other organization in the college showed better spirit among its members,
or a better feeling towards its leader, its opponents, and its Alma Mater than did
the 1923 Kittycats. They stand high in ideals, scholarship and refinenientg they
are a credit to the school and the school has a vast amount of pride in them.

Many of the girls this year were interested in aesthetic and interpretative
dancing. Programs were frequently given before the school and for the clubs
of the city. A special dancing instructor is employed for the summer session
of school. g y I, T 4
A tennis tournament was held during the summer of 1923. The entry list

A second tournament was held in the fall but not so much interest was shown
as in the summer contests. The feature of this tournament was the playing in
the women's singles. Roberta Cook eliminated Lorene Bruckner in a game
replete with climaxes and vanquished Mildred Gartin in the finals only by
another bit of excellent playing.

The chorus of this year was much larger than any previous chorus at the
college. Tn justification of its increased size it has made more and better
public appearances than any previous chorus.
One of the foremost programs rendered was "The Coming of the King,"
a Christmas cantata by Dudley Buck, During the Spring quarter the atten-
tion has been directed to "The Rose Maiden" by Cowen and some choruses
from the "Messiah" These will be a part of the program of the Music
THE LENNOX STRING QUARTET
This musical program of unusual artistic merit was brought to the college
this winter. The Quartet is composed of Sandor-Harmati, first violing
Wolfe Wonfinsohn, second violing Emmerman Stoeber, cellog and Nicholas

THE ALICE XWELLING RECITIAL
An event of much importance in the Musical Department of the school
was the recital of Miss Alice 'XVelling, pupil of Mr. Annett. She is the first
Student to finish the course in piano since the Conservatory has been con-
nected with the college. The ability she displayed in the recital speaks well
of the department. v

An annual event looked forward to with much anticipation is our Music
Festival week. Each succeeding year sees the program enlarged and im-
proved. This year the festival will take place in May from the fifth to the
On the first night there will be a concert given by the faculty of the
music department of the college. Those who will take part in this program
are Miss Anne Leonard, soprano, Mr. L. A. Richman, baritone, Mr. T. H.
Annett, pianist, and Mr. VVilliam Larson, violinist.
The program for the next day will be a presentation of "The Rose Maiden"
by Cowen. The college chorus under the direction of Mr. Gardner will sing
the choral parts. The solo parts will be given by Miss Leonard, Miss
Painter, and Mr. Richman.
Florence Macbeth, soloist from the Chicago Grand Opera Company,
will furnish the entertainment for the following night. Maryville people
already know the fine quality of her singing by means of the radio.
On the following night the noted pianist, Oswald, will give a recital.
The Chi1dren's Chorus, which is being trained under Mr. Gardner's
supervision, will be presented as a feature of the festival. The violinist,
Corligiano, will assist at this program.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB
The Dramatic Club of the College is one of its most active organizations. The
meetings were held once a week on Tuesday night, during the Fall and Winter
Quarters. However, during the Spring Quarter, the meetings have been held
once every two weeks on Tuesday nights. From the membership of the Club
all casts for the public presentation of plays are chosen.
The plays given this year have presented a variety of stage settings, scenes,
make-ups and characters. The plays have been under student direction, with the
exception of the last rehearsal of each. This has given the members an oppor-
tunity to use their own initiative and originality, besides giving good training
for later work.
At each meeting of the Dramatic Club this year a one-act play has been
given. Some of the most pleasing ones were: The Dream Maker, Sintram of
Skagarack, Honorable Togo, Spreading the News, Lima Beans, the first act of
The Servant in the House, and the three-act play, The Girl Wlio W01lld11Jf Be

The play opened with a scene in a railroad station with Williani Ames and
Isabel Stuart, who are strangers, stranded in the town, due to a storm which
delayed the trains. Ames is impressed by the quaint and dignified manners
of Miss Stuart and an acquaintance is formed.
The next morning the niece of Miss Stuart rescues the two from the station
and takes them to the Stuart home. For a while Ames takes a fancy to the
young flappe-r, but eventually sees the folly of his ways and reconsiders.
Mabel Raines as Isabel Stuart and Perry Eads as Williani Ames in the lead-
ing roles were especially pleasing. Jeannette Broclq as Florence Stuart, a young
flapper of the modern age, and Johnnie White, played by Robert Nicholas, her
suitor, furnished a great deal of amusement by their humorous lines and good
acting. The station master, played by Merle Selecmang Henry, the hired man,
played by Albert Wilsons, Aunt Ellen, played by Ruth Houchensg and Mattie,
the maid, played by Orpha Stewart, were pleasing in their parts.

VVALKOUT DAY t
S. T. C. is Maryville's pride, T
A better school you never spied, T
But when 'begins my ditty,
Some seven months ago, T
To see the students suffer so T
From classes was a pity. Y
They changed our girls from blooming lasses
To faded hags with horn rimmed glasses, l
They wedded each man to a musty tome l
Qliven Bush grew stooped of shoulder and addled of domel.
But students crushed did rise again, ,
The wish to rest was in each enfeebled brain.
" 'Tis clear," they said, "the profs are getting gay,
Ill fares the school, to the bow-wows a prey,
VVhere classes predominate and there is no VVALKOUT DAY " V
So hark! so list! on September twenty-fifth
Horns of freedom sounded with fervorg I
The echoes passed from class to class il
And those classes were cut forever. 5
The Dean was "beat',g the profs fell heirs 1
To classroom full of empty chairs. 4,
Out of the doors the students came tumbling-
Blonds and brunettes, shorts and talls,
Perfect thirty-sixes, and those who decorate the wall,
Tall men, short men, sheiks and grinds, V
Wise old school teachers, gay young Happers, T
Students by the tens and dozens
Whirled away for a day of play.
But such a pace as baseball doth require, TE
Boxing, horseshoe, and hard won race F
Gave one and all a strong desire
To meet a sandwich face to face.
Then the Seniors descended like wolves on a fold, 7
Their 'baskets well laden with food to appease, 4
Crying, "Come on, everyone, come and get your luncheon. l
But 'plank down' fifty centimes, please." ,A
C011 Seniors, Seniors, reverend Seniors,
To whom we all were prey,
The students' wealth, the students' cash ,L
Took thou in charge that day.j

M CLUB INITIATION
All day on Tuesday, january the twenty-ninth, staid and conventional
instructors were properly amazed at seeing some of our stalwart young men,
apparently in sound mind, come stalking into class clad in overalls or other
garb indicative of manual labor and carrying a spade, pitchfork or other
tool of the like nature.
The men answered no questions and asked none but one soon ascertained
that M Club initiation was in progress. Every man who had won a letter
in any branch of athletics since last track season was initiated.
On the evening of the same day a banquet was held in honor of the
same men. Each man was made to give a speech, sing a song, or perform a
stipulated stunt. To them the toastmaster's word was law.
After the banquet an adjournment was made to the East Gymnasium
where the final "degree work" was given. The new members are Oren Mas-
ters, Donald Gibson, Reed Holt, George Smith, Donald Davenport, Paul
Robey, Claude Pierpont, Cleo Wright, Russel Culp, Arthur Hartman, Howell
England, Ray Bloomfield.
KAPPA OMICRON PHI INITIATION
Monday evening, December the tenth, the-new members of the society
were given yellow scrolls on which were written instructions.
The 'following Wednesday each one carried an umbrella decorated with
the Club colors. The umbrella must be closed when indoors and opened
when out of doors. The girls also wore out-of-style clothing and did their
hair up in the old-fashioned way Qpig-tailsj.
The final work of the iniation was given the following Friday at Resi-
dence hall and a dinner was given in honor of the new members.

On the afternoon of February the
twelfth the lower Hoor of the building
was dressed to resemble Rocky Gulch,
a typical western mining town and
students and townspeople were invit-
ed to forget their real environment
and live, for one evening, the pro-
verbial life of a real, live westerner.
ln order that all the thrills pos-
sible might be crowded into the even-
ing the Juniors brought a circus to
Rocky Gulch for the evening.
No money was good except Rocky
Gulch National Bank Bucks which
were purchased from the bank at the
rate of one thousand for five cents.
As is always the case in an old-time
western town, prices were very high
in Rocky Gulch. At the Rocky Gulch
Saloon and Dance Hall C"Rep"
Palmer, "Pete" Eads, and "XVeb"
Young, proprietorsj a glass of cider
cost two thousand Bucks. One dance
to the music of the Hot Sands Orchestra set a cowboy back three thousand
more. At the Cafe one lonesome "dog" sandwich was valued at two thou-
Money was flowing freely and the crowd was in a gay humor when the
Maryville High School Band led the way to the opening of the circus on
the second floor. The first several showings were made to packed houses.
The Dixie Dazzlers and the Follies of 1925 were especially well liked.
The Rocky Gulch police force was very busy during the evening. Chief
"Johnny Ashcroft and his force handled some desperate desperados in a
very satisfactory manner. President Lamkin, was arrested, brought before
Police Judge Harvey Bush and convicted on a charge of vagrancy. Mr. Phil-
lips was apprehended and convicted of bootlegging. He paid his fine. Mr.
VVells was fined for resisting an officer.
Everything that goes with a good circus was present. The spindle-wheel
proved to 'be a bigger skin-game than ever, the proprietors of the "kewpie"
doll concessions were suspected of exorbitant profits and some of the ped-
dlers of horns and candy were charged with being pickpockets of inter-
A total oftwo million eight hundred thousand Bucks Qsixteen tubfulsj
was sold by the Bank and a "rip-roarin' " good time was enjoyed by all.

THE CHRISTMAS PARTY
This Party, which is given each year, was sponsored this year by the
Student Council. It was given Wednesday evening, December 19. The col-
lege library was converted into a home-like parlor with an old-fashioned
fireplace. A Christmas tree lighted with candles and loaded with toys and
gifts, large red Christmas bells ringing good cheer from the chandeliers, and
bits of mistletoe hung around the doorway, all added to the holiday atmos-
The guests assembled and got into the party spirit by giving birthday
charades. A group of girls sang yule-tide carols around the Christmas tree
and Nell XVilliams read "The Little Lady VVho VVouldn't Spoil Christmas."
In the Auditorium the guests drifted into the Land of Imagination and
watched mechanical dolls dance, bow and stareg saw real fairies danceg and
saw the 'fBeau of Bathn enacted.
Toward the close of the entertainment the fairies distributed the toys and
gifts from the tree and the crowd had a merry time with them. Ice cream
and cake were served to all.
The toys were later collected and sent to the poor children of Maryville.
Lack of space prevents us giving a complete account of all activities so
we have chosen the ones which seemsd to us most deserving of space and
can do no more than mention others.
The dances given each Tuesday afternoon at the girls' dormitory will be
recalled pleasantly by many of us. Line parties were another form of social
diversion that played a part in the social life of the school. The Sophomores
will not soon forget their party of this year. The Senior class carried out a
prearranged social program for the year.
The Social Science Club took an interesting part in the recent campaign
in favor of the proposed amendments to the State constitution.
The Don't Club with its invisible membership came into being late in
the fall, caused a few wails of mortal anguish to rise from the vicinity of the
gymnasiums, and then passed into oblivion as mysteriously and as silently as it

A LETTER Honra '
Sept. 20,1 1923.
Well, I got here all right-didn't have a 'bit of trouble changing cars at
Wabash Crossing. I like it ine here. I work in the Dean's office and study
when I have time.

around the building the first day and we got real well acquainted. He asked
me to loan him five dollars and I did. I haven't seen him sinceg guess he

NVhen I signed up for Biology 13 the instructor, Mr. Leeson, asked me
if I had ever had anthropology. I told him that I hadn't and that I was
vaccinated against smallpox and typhoid. He just laughed and said it was
not very contagious for most people anyway. Prof. Miller said one day
he'd bet I could do some good extemporaneous speaking when I wanted to

SQUATTER SOVERIFLIGNTY AT S. T. C.
CBy a Special Staff W1'lt61'.5
"They sit like Squatters of old,
With voices low and-'T .
Enter a new regime at S. T. C.! A new era, an age of Squatter suprem-
acy. If you haven't sensed the dawn of this new reign, cast your eyes about
to the nearest stairs, to the east ones, west ones, center ones, or to the
spacious ones before "The Truth Shall Make You Free," and you behold
apostles, in pairs, of this modern Squatter cult.
To make his statements more convincing and to show how widespread
the practice has become the writer has gone to the trouble of collecting
photographic data which is reproduced on the opposite page. No photos
of Stairstep Squatters were taken as all are more or less familiar with that
particular brand. A glance at the opposite page Will prove the writer's con-
tention that the new idea carries a subtle and powerful urge. The pictures,
with one exception, were taken during the rare intervals when the principals
were not performing the rituals of the cult. Even then some of them could
not resist the temptation to lean indolently against a telegraph post, or a
brick wall. The force of the new doctrine even drives them to the top of
the windmill for a more advantageous squatting place.
To the casual observer the strength of this new movement is unnoticed.
But to the thoughtful it is a tremendous force to be reckoned with. The
newness of it will be challenged by the analytical. Ts it a school of philoso-
phers that has sprung up over night, in dandelion fashion, two this morning
where there was only one yesterday? Or has its subtle magnetic doctrines
been smouldering sub-rosa only to break out in all of its fury this year?
Does the "astronomy class" on the marble bench in years gone fby point to
the embryo cult? Was it nourished and encouraged by the Hbenchology
class" on the first Hoor before that course was condemned? Did the two-
somes and four-somes of yesteryear 'neath the sheltering arms of that gone,
but not forgotten Hebe, foreshadow it? A
Be that as it may, Squatter Sovereignty is upon us. "To squat or not to
squat, that is the questionf' The Don't Club said not and for a time squat-
ting ceased. But the crusading Don'ters passed by the way and the faithful
disciples returned with fervid hearts unabated. .
The movement is sweeping onward. NVhere will it stop? Shall Squat-
ters be provided with stop lights and head lights to insure their safety?
NVill a zoning system be planned with restricted areas and limited time park-
ing spaces or shall we abandon the stairs to the Squatters and install ele-
Breathlessly we await the turning of events.

They portrayed the changing mode from the exploitation of every curve of
the human body to the absence of allcurves, from the long skirt which swept' the
ground to those of the present, from the well rounded bust, eighteen inch waist,
prominent hips, natural face and gracious manners to the Hat bust, natural waist,
camoufiaged face and as few manners as possible.
The show was divided into two parts-first, the styles from 1886 to 1924,and
second, the typical costume of 1924 for sport, street, afternoon and evening wear.
Une will doubtless wonder what has brought about such changes in fashion.
just remind yourself that thirty-five years ago such phrases as "rapid transit,"
"step lively," "step forward in the car, please," "side slip," "where do we go from
here," "broadcasting," "listening in," and "Hivver" were not even in our vocabu-

however, was the game in which she made only eight or ten goals. We admit
that we were amply repaid for our troubles, nevertheless. In action, Lorene

THE GOSSIP DERBY
COregon, Sunnybrook and Trenton papers please copyj
Much interest was shown this year by college students and townspeople
in the College's First Annual Gossip Derby. Along with other entrance
qualifications entrants were required to be able to tell the source of all stories
told Iby them. Exception was made in the case of Mildred Kiser who gets
much of her best stuff indirectly from the faculty and could not 'be ex-pected
to betray those under whom she might take courses afterwards. No gossip
over six months old was to be used by anyone.
The three entrants this year were Orpha Stewart, Mildred Kiser and
Ethel Mae Gibson. These three need no recommendation to the student
body. Their prowess is unquestionedg they know everything that happens,
everything that almost happened and everything that is liable to happen.
Ethel Mae was given a twenty word start because she had a slight sore on
her lip which 'bothered her somewhat. The judges were Bill Devore, Joseph
Graves and Ganum Findley from the Excelsior literary society. Orpha
Stewart was almost ruled off the course because she would not stop talking
long enough for an even start.
When the cannon boomed for the start Mildred took the lead with a few
delectable bits of talk concerning what she had seen from her window which
commands a view of the front porch at Perrin Hall. At the end of the first
hour Ethel Mae took the lead with the statement that the supposed break
between Brigham Young and Fannie Blacklock was only a piece of diplo-
macy on Brigham's part to avoid buying a Christmas present. However,
late hours told on her so much that at the end of another two hours Orpha
took the lead with the story of the date Dorothy Newsome made with Russel
Hamilton and how she wore his DeMolay pin afterwards. This lead was'
increased by the assertion that Mr. Leeson has a new joke to take the place
of the one he has been telling for the past six years.
An hour later Mildred closed up the lead somewhat by telling how Jason
Kemp spilled a glass ofwater one day at Perrin Hall and tried to go swim-
ming afterwards. Ethel Mae also showed an amazing burst of reserve gossip
by relating that Mary Holt expected to spend her honeymoon in Colorado,
and that she had advised her to keep away from Greeley as some of his old
sorority friends might kidnap him.
Orpha came into the home stretch talking at the rate of one hundred and
forty words per second with her mouth and one hundred per second in the
sign language. This final piece of strategy won her the race. Neither of the
other two had had the foresight to learn the sign language. Her last words
were that a special reception room was being built at the dormitory for
Anna and Russel and that she really did not have time to gossip.
Sixteen stenographers, forty-nine reams of paper, and ten cartons of chew-
ing gum were used and the result was seventy volumes of unadulterated

Immaculate in evening clothes, he surrendered his coat and hat to the
door-man, then turning, walked to the arcade and stood surveying the large,
glaringly lighted room. XVith a sweeping glance he took in the hidden
orchestra, the dancers, the glimmering white tables, the myriad lights,
searched the face of each moustached foreigner, gazed long into the eyes
of each attractive woman-searching-always searching, yet never finding
the elusive adventure, "the" romance in a life otherwise lonely and dull.
Vtfith a sigh of disappointment he wended his way toward a palm-
screened alcovegunaware of the approving glances of feminine eyes, took up
the menu and proceeded to spend another evening of boredom.
The same old place-it had always appeared the same since he, Gordon
Frazier, could remember. He nodded to old acquaintances-they could
always be found here. He should have known that he would find nothing
here except the ordinary tiresome gayety.
It seemed strange that a handsome, athletically built young fellow free
to spend his father's millions should lack excitement. Strange that amid all
this gayety he should feel so alone. The war had left him with a cross of
honor and an insatiable desire for adventure. It had grown to be an obses-
sion with him and threatened, at the age of twenty-seven, to make life un-
Only yesterday his desire had driven him Qat the jest and tip from a friendj
to apply at an office of shady character in a still more shady neighborhood
which was reputed to create or "stage" adventures for the diversion of bored
young men of wealth who craved adventure and danger which was not of-
fered them in business life. He had failed to obtain even a second-hand
"cut-and-dried" escapade. They were "too busy just now," took his name
and asked him to call again.
Why were people so commonplace, so extremely conventional that noth-
ing happened? 'His favorite haunts were lifeless, his companions were dull.
even his Dad had asked him if it was not time that he settled down, took
his share of the business, and got married. Such things were unbelievingly
disgusting. Shrugging his shoulders, he brought his wandering thoughts
back to a bored study of the menu. I
Ever the same items here-everything and everyone were seemingly in a
'rut out of which they could not climb. There was "Cherry Frappef' Yes,
he even knew which dish would be absent tonight. He could recite from
memory the entrees which would follow "Potage du Poulet" and "Filet au
Boeuf" and-. He suddenly became alert-sat erect in his chair, the amused
expression of boredom replaced by one of surprise as he stared intently at
the card, for there, scrawled in a feminine hand, were these words which
Page One Hundred Fifty
never before had appeared on a staid formal menu:
"Mr, Frazier, at 8:30 you will be dining here. Will you, for the
sake of a friend, lend your assistance to one who is in trouble?
Then come, Sir, to--Street."
Again he read it. The tocsin call quickened his pulse, sent the blood
pounding to his brain and left him eager as the hound for the hunt for
whatever the evening had in store for him.
Dinner was forgotten. What matter that now in the light of the note?
Who was the writer? Surely a woman--and she was in danger. When
had she written it? And, question of all questions--how did she know at
which table in any one of the number of hotels he would be tonight? Would
he answer the age-old cry of woman in distress to man? But he was alreadv
striding to the cloak-room, summoning a taxi, and giving the chauffeuvr
instructions before the question really came to his mind. Forgotten now
were the lights, the crowds, and forced merriment, for adventure was within
In the dark interior, alone with his thoughts he was swirled away past
theatres, cabarets, office buildings, through the winking, twinkling rows of
lights that mark Broadway, its hopes and its failures, the never-ending
stream of well dressed men and painted women fled past as the car rolled on
out into the dark. .
The rush of cool night air brought clearer thoughts. Wlas he nothing
but a child that he should rush headlong into the unknown and be so be-
numbed with expectation at the opportunity to take a chance with the
unknown and uncertain? He was keyed to a nervous strain with expectancy,
tingling with surges of imagination as his thoughts rushed ahead of the car.
The strange setting of the note, its appeal, and the promise of a chance to
aid a girl had had an effect upon him. Who was she? What trouble was
she in? Why had she chosen him? He was wondering what she would be
like. Something in the note told him he would like her. He knew, never
having seen her, that she would be worthy of his life if any danger con-
He glanced out of the window of the car. Gone were the lights of a few
moments ago. He seemed to be in a strange city. Greasy restaurants,
squalid tenements, ill-lighted pawn-shops, the thousandfand-one small shops
flew by-now an interval of darkness-then a flash of sickly pale lights-
and darkness. Deeper and deeper into the crime ridden section fburrowed
the car. Not far away was Mott Street with its vile dens for opium-smoking
The car stopped. He alighted and stood gazing about as the car rolled
away How remote and strange this seemed from the street of life and light
which he had left but a moment ago. Strange that in the same city and on y
Page One Hundred Fifty-one
a few miles from the glow, reflected upon the sky, marking Broadway he
should find this contrasted gloom.
He searched for the address which had been written on the menu and
found it to be a Greek cafe occupying the basement of a darkened, ram-
shackle building. Stepping inside the door he was confused with the clamor
of a "timmy" piano and unsavory odor from the kitchen.
"This way, sir, your lady is waiting," said a besmeared, dirty-aproned at-
tendant, and led him, expectant, to a far corner.
"You're Gordon Frazierif' Her wide sad eyes peered up searching his
face in a mute appeal for aid.
"At your service,'l he returned gallantly, took the chair offered him, and
adding that it was a beautiful evening, he studied her face. Her attire, quiet
but of rich materials, showed that she too was out of her natural environ-
ment. She was terribly young to have those despairing, sorrowful eyes.
"You're wondering why I should ask you to come to this dreadful place,
aren't you P" she asked hurriedly, rather nervously.
"I don't believe I was wondering at all," he said, gazing spellbound into
her eyes. He knew he must put her at ease but he knew not how.
"I shouldn't have asked you to come but I'm so alone and I don't know
which way to turn," she faltered, and then stopped. He was afraid she
was going to cry.
"I'll be only too glad to do anything I can to helpf' he hastened, "But how
do you know who I am, how did you know where to find me ?"
She glanced at her watch and in seeming haste loosed her tongue to
the rambling explanation: "My brother was a memfber of one of your clubs
and, I believe, often accompanied you to your favorite cabaret." She hesi-
tated, "I'd rather you'd not know our name just now.-Earlier in the evening
when you were at the cafe I took the last chance of communicating with
you. I had phoned to your home but your man said that he did not know
when you would return."
"But I'm here now," he said to reassure her quavering voice.
."It is wonderful of youto be so kind," she exclaimed, beaming thanks
upon him. "I had no right to ask you, but you+you were the only one I
even halfway knew and I can't trust every one," she threw out her hands
in an eloquent gesture of resignation.
"But I'm sure you did quite all rightf' he said. f'You mentioned that I
could be of assistance ?"
She studied him closely for a long moment, seemingly to make a final
decision, then leaning closer, spoke in low, vibrant tones: "VVill you break
into a safe ?" '
"VVhy er-," it rather took his breath to have that blank, unusual ques-
tion asked of him. "I don't usually make a practice of it," he swallowed the
lump in his throat. "But I guess I could tryfl
"I knew you would," she said squeezing his hand, "I should go but his
spies knew me-so it is impossible."
Page One Hundred Fifty-fwo
Y The room had grown stifling to him. He had wanted danger, had he not?
Well, here it was. He would not be found wanting in the eyes of a girl.
"I suppose one will need nitro-glycerin or an auger, won't he, for this bgusl-
ness?" he suggested in a semi-confident tone.
f'Oh, but I have the combination," she said. "Tsao VVhang is not at
home, you will be safe-but we must hurry, it is already late. In the safe
you will find a parchment envelope, it contains valuable papers of my
deceased father with which he has threatened our family name-that en-
velope is your objective."
He leaned closer that he might better understand her hasty instructions-
the house of Tsao VVhang-Chinatown-hrst door to right-combination-
right 14 left 7-nothing to fear but must make haste.
"Do you understand?" she asked as she finished.
"I believe I do," he said. "It is my duty to recover the envelope from
.Fsao VVhang, blackmailer, who is just now on leave of absence, leaving his
home and safe in Chinatown unguarded for the moment."
She nodded sharply. "I shall not try to thank you. I can not-not now.
I shall meet you here in one hour-but now we must hasten." They arose
and left amid the stares of the unkempt habitues of this Greek inn.
Gutside, as the door swung to, she stepped close against him, "You're a
brave man, Gordon Frazier-I hope-I hope that we shall see each other
againfl A pressure of her hngers and she was gone into the dark.
He stared foolishly after her. His brain refused to function properly
for her whispers kept chasing across his mind. He seemed petrihed. What
had she meant by those last words? VVas there danger of his not returning?
He shuddered. VVhat did it matter if he didn't? He would have at least
one exquisite adventure before death over-took him. He squared his shoul-
ders, turned up his coat collar, slouched his hat over his eyes, and with hands
deep in his pocket he set out full of determination for Tsao YVhang's-for
Chinatown-an envelope-and adventure.
Mott Street, dull and commonplace to the unobserving eye, was quietg
quiet as the mischievous child when getting into more mischief. The
slithering pads of slippered feet, the ferret glances of almond eyes, the sub-
dued mellow light from an open doorway showing the hlth of the crowded
streets, a blear-eyed, dope dazed specimen of riff-raff, weaving and tottering
on the darkened corner, the sound of a one-stringed fiddle, the muffled
laugh and murmur of voices, the riffling noise of cards: a blue coated
policeman strolling nonchalantly beneath a street lamp, idly swinging his
club-all told Gordon Frazier that he was in Chinatown, his journeyls end.
Head down he slouched slowly along in the shadows, melted into the
darker blot of a doorway and was lost from view.
He stood for an instant just inside the door, his back against it, his breath
coming in short quivering gulps, his heart racing. The darkness seemed to
come upon him by waves to stifle him. The air was laden with the dense
odor of smouldering incense. For a long moment he stood tense and listen-
ing. He had been almost sure that he had heard a muffled chuckle as he
had entered. Moments passed in awesome silence, then slowly, ever so
slowly, he tiptoed forward with his hand against the wall to guide him to
Page One Hundred171'fty-l1z1'cc
the first door to the right.
Soft were his steps. Nothing but a faint rustle marked his progress when
suddenly the lights flashed on, flooding the room with their brilliance.
Gordon Frazier started and whirled about, muscles tense and heart pound-
ing. The room was void of any one except himself. His thought rushed
tumultously for recognition. VVhy did they wait, what was meant by this
suspense? Someone must be even now drawing careful aim at his heart.
It would mean disgrace to be found here-this stain of dread was unbear-
Then with a low laugh he relaxed entirely, wiping the cold 'beads of per-
spiration from his brow. He remembered now, his hand sliding along the
wall had touched the light button and given him the moment of terror.
It left him weak. He found a chair, sank into it and gazed around. The
room added to the depression into which he was rapidly sinking-the low-
ceiled, dark paneled room seemed to close in upon him, the silken Oriental
tapestries shut out the rest of the world and help should he need it.
He arose determined to see it through, his feet sank noiselessly into the
velvetyness of the carpet. He stepped to the first door to the right, parted
the rich draperies, found the light and switched it on. This room must
be the den, exquisitely and luxuriously furnished, but everywhere the sicken-
ing pervading scent of burning incense. His gaze wandering about the room
rested upon a high hand carved chair-rested and stayed. His eyes dilated.
He was conscious of a sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach. Slumped
in the chair, clothed in rich silken robes was the sprawling, staring figure of
a Chinese, a long stilleto still quivering in his bosom.
He was brought back from his hypnotic trance by the insistent clamor of
a telephone. Summoning his energy, he walked to the desk, giving a wide
berth to the still figure.
"Gordon Frazier F" The voice was panting his name. It was her voice.
"Quick," she was sobbing now, "You haven't a moment to lose. Tsao's
right hand man is coming. ,It is death if he finds you there. To the right
of the safe you'll find a button-press it quick. It is your only escape now."
The receiver clivcked down, the phone was dead. His decision was quick,
he must save that girl from danger, yes even at the cost of his honor. He
had come for that envelope and he would get it or not return.
Noiselessly with catlike agility he whirled, knelt before the safe and
twirled the dial-"Right fourteen-left seven"-he murmured the combina-
tion. He had been too hasty, turned the dial past its place. The safe refused
to open. He had lost valuable moments. Slowly he turned the bit of shin-
ing nickel, rewarded now by the falling of the tumblers.
What was that noise? Tsao's servant had returned-was even now at
the door. Frantically he tore open the door of the safe. His fingers were all
thumbs. Couldnyt he hurry? His mind raced but his body refused. Rum-
maging over the contents of the safe he found the- envelope. The other man
Page One Hundred Fifty-four
was approaching the doorway. Soon those curtains would be torn aside and
he would be found.
He found the button and pushed it frantically. His life, his name hung
in the balance. At the push of the button a section of the wall slowlv began
to open, open, would it never open, he thought as it slowly swung back on
massive hinges. Frantically he pounded on it but the door continued to
move tantalizingly in its slow sure movement, slow and sure as his inevitable
fate. An exclamation behind him. Now he could just squeeze through the
opening. Dully behind him he heard the report of a pistol as he ran head-
long unknowing into the dark.
He was in a small dark alley. He scaled the fence before him in a leap
and in long strides left the house of terror behind. Settling into a nervous
step, he partly gained his breath and nerve. It had been a close call. He
breathed a sigh of relief and thought how much enjoyment he could gain
if he could only laugh loudly and hysterically. I
It seemed but a moment until he again found the agreed rendezvous, took
a seat in a secluded corner and waited. Something must have happened to
her, perhaps she had gone to see what had happened to him.
"Your lady went off with another feller." He had been unaware of the
waiter's approach. "She said that you should have that there envelope
and remember what she told you."
Slowly Gordon tore open the envelope. A sudden fear clutched at his
heart and his eyes refused to look at the contents. Slowly, fearfully, he
turned to the slips of paper which had been within and found a statement for
fifty dollars for "services rendered" and a short note: ,
Dunn 81 Brooks
Dear Sir: I sincerely hope that we have been entirely successful in pro-
viding for you an evening of romance, danger, adventure and excitement. If
we have, I trust that you will feel that your money has not been grafted
nor spent in vain.
Life, sir, is full of the unexpected which hitherto you have been unable
to find. In closing I should say that in the future you must get out of the
"rut" you have been in if you would find adventure.
Hoping that we may be of further service we remain,
1 Per I. N. Dunn, Pres.
Again he was alone-all alone, but he had had enough excitement. Over
and over in his mind ran her last words to him, fraught with meaning now:
"You're a brave man, Gordon Frazier,-I hope-I hope that We shall SCC
each other againf,
