LAMKIN, LL. D f a J 1 iii ,eg if ' a Ill I as l O .QBIW E ri An Appreciation A new spirit, reiuvenating and enhancing every phase of college life, has sprung up in S. T. C. this past year. It is not the loyalty of an alumni to his Alma Mater, it is not the spirit of a successful football or basket ball team, it is not the zeal with which a student seeks knowledge-it is this and more, too. We are enveloped in an atmosphere of that soniething which produces loyalty, spirit and Zeal. The growth of the student body has necessitated new buildings. Residence Hall, the womenls dormitory, has been completed. A new gymnasium is under construction, also. a model farm. Our campus has been beautified-new shrubs started and old ones well taken care of. Paramount among the factors which have contributed to this awakening is our able president, MR. LAMKIN. His leadership and influence have made the student body and faculty become one, his efforts have succeeded in securing the appropriaf tions for our buildings, his fine example has inspired our student body to become loyal to its Alma Mater, to support its teams and to be athirst for the knowledge which is being made possible by the STATE QF MISSQURI.

They have successfully passed through the first two stages of existence as Frcshics and Sophs, and in the coma period, as Junios, slept through such enlightening courses as Anthropology and Human Ceograf phy. Their snores reverberated in the hall to such an extent that even Hehe was jarred from her pedestal.

The second purpose is to give such students of high school rank, wholchoose to come to the college for their high school training, a school equal to or superior to any in the state. We base our claims on the facts that students who are doing practice teaching have about comf pleted their college course. They usually do practice teaching in their major sub' ject which makes them specialists in their work. Such teaching as is done by teach' ers in training is done under the direct supervision of the subjectfmatter specialists and of the supervisor of high school practice. The students in this department have access to the college library, laboratories and gymnasium. They may belong to college chorus and to the second orchestra of the college. Two new courses have been added to the curriculum this year, namely: Citizenship and Dramatics. Each Friday from 2:2Of3:2O is given over to H. S. Activity. This hour is devoted to subjects of cultural value. There are nine seniors who receive diplomas in the spring and several who complete their work at the end of the summer. , Mary Alexander Martha Narris Elsa Hilsenbeck Mrs. L. C.

The two main social events of the' year have been the "TallyfHoi' party and the Halloween party. A new feature in the programs during the year has been frequent open discussions on vital student problems, which have brought about better understanding and closer fellowship among the girls.

The aim of the Club is best expressed in these words of Cardinal Newman: "lt is 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. whatever. either human or divine, to be, so far as it goes, not knowledge but ignorance." This Club was organized in the summer of 1921 and although it has not grown much in numbers it has grown in strength. By its cofoperative efforts. it has done some very constructive work for the benefit of the college. This year its activity has been to purchase a house that is ' to used jointly as a club house and a home for college girls. The progress of this project has far exceeded their expectations during the meeting of the Teachers' Association, and one formal entertainment each quarter Page Eightyftwo ' n 1925 Social events of the year were the annual banquet. the luncheon given for visiting members ., . fa fr' ' Y ' W f --- ' Y W-- 37" 'AJ Q l L 'ii Dae TO xv E R, l S' 'WLT , ' N ., .- ws.. 'MA -41 .Y,. 41: Lg: ::.:.:l, S The Newman project - The Newman Club opened a new house for its members on West Third Street at the beginning of the school year. The house is quite large, has all modern equipf ment and is suitable for such a home. The large living room, with its adjoining music room and open dining room, affords an excellent place for club meetings, socials and parties. A charming little breakfast room off the dining room makes a disf tinctive retreat to use for lunch room, study or conference room. Eighteen girls can be placed comfortably in the simple, attractive furnished rooms on second and third floors. The old fashioned room is quite unique in such a modern setting, and the large room on this third floor, with its ivoryftinted walls and ivory furniture makes an ideal place for chafingfdish parties and slumber parties. Two large rooms in the basement are fully equipped for housekeeping. The students in the house may avail themselves of this or board outside as they choose. This makes it possible for girls coming here to have very attractive living rooms and to have quarters for preparing meals at a very nominal cost. The ultimate plan is that, when the house is paid for, poor but worthy and ca' pable girls be permitted to live in the house until they get the required work def manded by the State. ln the event that they are unable to pay expenses while in school, that they give their personal note for money advanced and then when they get to earning money, return money borrowed to the Club trustees and thus make it possible for another girl to be benefitted by the house. Miss Margaret Franken and Miss Katherin Franken, faculty sponsors of the Club, are house supervisors. A board of advisers has been chosen by the Club to act with them in managef ment of Club affairs. The Club is fortunate in getting lvlrs. F. M. Ryan, Miss Kate Yehle, Mr. N. Sturm and fMr. T. A. Cummings to act in this capacity. Through the splendid cofoperation of the College, of many Maryville people, of former College students and friends, this worthy project has been possible. li Page Eighty-three N7 v Hazel Campbell Mrs. Loomis Mr. Loomis Ethel Stevenson Hope Manchester Vesta Vx7right Bessie Haskell Vera McCleod Pauline Rodman Tressa House Lorena Palmer Lucille LaMar Mary Lou Harrington Uillvioers President-Vesta Wright ViccfPresicle-nt-Vera McCleod Secretary and TreasurergBessie Haskell Sponsors-lvlr. and Mrs. Burt Loomis The Eastern Star Club was organized in November, 1921. by a group of girls who were members of the Order of the Eastern Star, and who had a vision of the benefit such an organi- zation would be to the school and its members. The purpose of the organization is to foster a closer spirit of friendship among Eastern Stars of the student body and faculty. It is interested in every movement its Alma Mater undertakes. Every Eastern Star of the college is eligible for membership. The membership roll of the Club has increased since '21 and many good times have been enjoyed. Cn some occasions the Masonic Club joined in the activities of the Club. The big social event of each year is the Eastern StarfMasonic Club banquet.

We are truly proud of the members, who, by earnest endeavor, have built up this youngest society. It was due to such efforts that the Excelsiors were able to present a good assembly program with only one week's preparation. And it really was good--don't you think so, you, who were there? And it was such endeavor that enabled the Excelsiors to make such a showing in the contests. Yet it is not in the nature of the Excelsiors to be content with past achievements. To you, who will be Excelsiors in the days to come, We leave the task of raising this society to a yet higher standard. Remember, loyal Excelsiors of the future, that "Excelsior" is both a name and a motto. HTQ get the rnost from S. T. C.

The enthusiasm, energy, and talent of this group is known throughout the college and Northwest Missouri. The close of the present quarter marks the end of the twelfth year of the or' ganization of the society. During this year the Eurekans maintained the high standard which had been set for them in the preceding years of her history. Every meeting was carefully planned and consequently the programs proved excellent. In the outstanding literary event of the year, the InterfSociety Contests, the Eurekans did not carry off the victory, yet they were proud of all the representatives who had a share in placing the society second on the list. The Eurekans, represented by Richard Baker and George Newman. won first in the debate with the Excelsiors. Laura Margaret Raines won first in declamation. During the past eleven years the Eurekan Literary Society has won six firsts in declaination. seven firsts in debate, one first in essay, two hrsts in music, two firsts in sight reading, four firsts in debate, one two firsts in extemporaneous speaking, Under the encouragement and cooperation of the faculty the literary societies are increasing in popularity. There are few organizations that give S. T. C. the high scholastic standing she has more than the literary societies. The Eurekans have had a share in maintaining this high record. The steady development and present standing of the 'Eurekan Literary Society warrant the highest expectations for her future. ,lvllernheirs inott in the Picture Mai'y Curtnutt Robert Nicholas Essie Vsfard Eva Hoskins Irene Goff Mary Kautz Margaret Dietz Ruth Lawrence lllarie Chandler Gertrude Belt Robert Mountjoy Birdie Bcsinger Neri Robertson ri Wt n U Q , ,- Laura Margaret Raines C.

The same high standards of talent, scholastic standing, and college ideals have been maintained. The Annual LLHO3DCCO111iUg5l held during the Meeting of the Northwest Missouri Teachers' Association last Pall was an event to be long remembered by every true lover of the Blue and Cold. Miss Dykes, a former Philo, gave an illustrated talk about her trip abroad. AWliile the "eats, were being served each visiting Philo gave a toast to the Philo Spirit. The' Philomatheans presented in their assemblylprogram this year a typical prof Gram of literary and musical talent similar to that given every Thursday afterooon in 171 the Philo room. In the interfsociety contests the Philoinathean Society came out victor in a very close and hotly contested struggle. The interfsociety banquet which followed the contests this year is significant in that it portrays the growth of fellowship and cooperaf tion among the literary clubs of fl1C CUHCQC- To the future student the Philomathean Literary Society offers an unequaled opportunity for development of literary and musical talent, and the privilege of assof ciating with a group of students imbued with the true Philo Spirit of pep, honor, ideals, loyalty and optimism, Visit the Philos.

Besides the advertising and the usual news of the college, the Green and White Courier carries each week some special articles of interest to college men and women or to the high school boys and girls who read it, notes of the various high schools of the district, and notes of the work and activities of other colleges. It does not carry jokes borrowed from exchanges, 'but gives its readers many a smile through its columns conducted by the Stroller, a person who, like the wandering Jew, lives on and on year after year, watching and commenting upon the humorous doings of both faculty and students.

' f KATHERINE GRAY DUANE WHITFORD The religious organizations of the college entertained the students and faculty at a Halloween masquerade party on Tuesday, Cctober 28. Masquerades are always full of fun and this year's party seemed unusually successful in this respect. More than three hundred students were present, most of whom were costumed. Cn arrival they were conducted through an intricate maze in the west gymnasium. Then everyone gathered in the library and tried to recognize fellow classmates and friends. Temple Allen, acting as master of ceremonies, led the grand march to the auditorium where the masqueraders paraded in review before the judges. Duane Wliitford, disguised as a devil, and Katherine Gray as a butterfly were awarded prizes. A clever comedy, "Punk,'l directed by lvliss IxlcClanahan, was presented. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all the students. The party then adjourned to the east gymnasium where refreshments of doughnuts, apples, and cider were served. The Residence Hall Crchestra played for a dance in the library. Games were played in the gymnasium for those who did not care to dance. The Halloween party was undoubtedly one of the most successful parties of the year. The student body owes the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A. and Newman Club a vote of thanks for such an enjoyable evening. Page One Hundred One 111925,-1 it e ' T ll Page One Hundred Two te - filibhe Towieg IW-. Wafkout ay Walkout Day-the longflookedfforwardfto, heralded event of the year occurred in Cctober. It was supposed to be a surprise to the faculty but as usual it wasn't. Why should it be when students come to classes with hats and coats on and sit on the edges of their seats wondering if that bell will ever ring? But in spite of that, we still have hopes of some day fooling them. V Did everyone have fun?' Yes, indeed. Cn Walkout Day even staid and sedate faculty members dropped their dignity and forgot the worries and cares of school for a day. I The DeMott farm was the scene of this year's affair. The usual parade through the business district was omitted, but most all of the students found their way to the appointed place. Games and entertainment of various kinds made the morning pass rapidly. At noon the Seniors were gladly hailed by a famished crowd of students. We must add that the eats were exceptionally good. The sentiments of most of the students as they reached home that afternoon could be expressed in these words, "Ch, what's the use. I simply can't study on a day like this, anyway. I don't think I shall on Walkout Dayff We needn't add that the faculty was well aware of this the following day. But what is life without a day off once in a while? lfdlomecoming Day The Student Council initiated and successfully put over the first Homecoming in the history of S. T. C. on Cctober IO. A The Cape Girardeau Indians invaded the Bearcat camp with blood in their eyes and determination in their hearts. But the "Fightin"' Bearcats with a stronger determination in their hearts made the Indians sneak from their camp with lowered heads, after a l6fO defeat. A big mass meeting was held at the court house on the evening of Cctober 9 and, with its interesting talks and reunion of old grads, proved a huge success. The Student Council entertained the student body and old grads at a dance in the west gymnasium. The Council did its best to make Homecoming a big success. Let's pull together for a bigger, better reunion next year. Easter party A party was given by the Welfare Committee for the student body on Friday, April 3. A carefully arranged program made the party most enjoyable. The decoraf tions and program were both in keeping with Easter. Cn arrival, the guests were taken to the library where wget acquainted" games, such as 'LHare in the Garden," were played. The guests were then asked to group themselves according to classes. They were given a puzzle which was fitted together and on which were directions. An egg hunt then took place and the class which succeeded in finding the most eggs was given points. Cther games followed and the winners each time received points. In the end the class having the largest number of points was awarded a prize. Q U The latter part of the evening was spent in dancing. Everyone, who attended, enoyed himself and we all cast our vote for another party sponsored by the Welf J fare Committee. Page One Hundred 'Three 511925,-.,, J, .

Clogs-"Yankee Doodle," "Riggedy Jig," by Miss Bass' dancing classes. Colonial Songs-Lorraine Maxy. Tableau reading, uCld Fashioned Girl," by Miss McClanahan and Miss Bass. After the program the costumed members of the party passed in review before three judges, Alyce Allen and Duane Whitford were awarded first prize. At nine o'clock the guests who wished to dance went to the west gymnasium where music was furnished by the Residence Hall orchestra. The rest of the guests took part in charades or played bridge, checkers or dominoes. A Movies Cne of the most interesting and unique features of college activities has been the movies, which have been shown in the auditorium at various times, throughout the year. Some of the most recent and best ones of the day have been shown. The following are some of the movies which have appeared: 'LDorothy Vernon of Haddon Hallfl "America" 'LCne Exciting Night." uDisraeli.', L'The Covered Vv'agon." "The Thief of Bagdad. "Merton of the lvloviesf' "The Alaskan." -ia Peter Pan." "Captain January."

The Philomathean Society won nrst place having four firsts to their creditg the Eurekans won second with three: and the Excelsiors third with two firsts. There is no doubt but that the contests this year were more successful than ever before. The attendance to the events was especially large. Spirit and good fellowship were shown by all the societies. In order to nourish and develop this newlyfborn cofoperation and friendliness, a good fellow' ship banquet was held shortly after the close oflthe contests. Each society was well represented at the banquet and an especially interesting program was given.

Damping pageant -"Plantation Days," a pageant play, was given by the dancing classes and general gym classes of the college. The play centered around the selling of a slave girl, Miss Mary Curnutt. The Hrst scene was placed in front of a negro cabin on the plantation. The darkies were seen working with cotton and grinding grain and daring a few clogs and songs when the overseer had passed on to another group. The mood for the second scene was set by the natural dancers with a dance to Idilio. Lightness, with a touch of sorrow, prevailed. The Colonial dancers gathered for a social occasion and danced several square dances. The closing dance showed the sorrow of a darky lover groping for hope, and closed with a prophesy of better times for the blacks.

T ackle The Capo Game Playing a game that was streaked by brilliant plays, and yet marred by numerf ous fumbles, the Bearcats chalked up a win in the first conference game, which was played against the Cape Girardeau Indians on the Maryville gridiron. The game was Homecoming Day for the Bearcats and the old grads were presented a real treat in the form of a 16 to O win. The Cape team fought desperately and threatened the S. T. C. goal in the last half by a forward passing attack. The true mettle of the Bearcat team was tested on one occasion when the Indians had a scant two yards to carry the ball over for a touchdown but the Maryville defense rose to the oc' casion and the massacre of the Indians for the 1924 season was completed. -. va 7 - .,-,, I i, s: , A V. 4 1 K 5 V' , .. ff ,W ' . fa -u f 5, -' ' ,f f A ....

Bearcats and the Beavers of Buena Vista, Iowa, battled, by every means known to football, to a scoreless tie. Although outweighed to the man the Bearcats carried the fight, into their opponents territory but lacked the necessary punch to push the ball over for a'score. Attempts at place kicks were unsuccessful on account of the mud. The scoreless tie with the Iowa champions was a fitting close to a most successful Northwest Missouri State Teachers College football season. THUG VlFeH.II?llSlI0 GIQSLIUUIB The Bearcats closed the football season with a 7 to O victory over the Tarkio football team. The game was filled with exciting plays and the two ancient rivals battled hard for the honors. Fumbles in the last half prevented additional scores for the Maryville Bearcats. ylrllllfli' SKBSLSCUJIIII The 1924 football season was one of which S. T. C. has every reason to be proud. The team went through the season fighting like Bearcats, playing the game clean and always smiling, and tied with Kirksville for the championship honors of the Missouri InterfCollegiate Athletic Association. One of the outstanding features of the season was the fact that the Bearcats were scored upon by but one team, Kirksville, and in addition to this played the champions of the state of Iowa, Buena Vista, to a scoreless tie. H. Frank Lawrence, Bearcat coach, was ably assisted by Paul jones, line coach. The two S. T. C. mentors not only developed a strong forward wall and backfleld but turned out four men that made berths on the 'Lmythical eleven" which was com' posed of players selected from the teams of the M. I. A. A. conference. Sweaters with the white and service bars were presented to eighteen members of the Bearcat squad and to Billy Lamkin, mascot. The following men won letters: Hugh Graham,acting captain, and Webster Young, four year service men, Sam England, and George Barklay, three year service men, John Ashcroft, David Eads, Arthur Hartman, and Orin Masters, two year service men, Vodre Willoughby, Jarvis Bush, We1'ner Moentman, Paul Stone, Denton Peoples, Homer Ogden, Russel Hamilton, Kenneth Fouts, and Gordon Fowler, one year service men. Gold footballs, emblematic of the championship of the conference, were pref sented to the eighteen Bearcat warriors and to Lon XVilson, captain of the 1924 team, who was injured before the season started and did not participate in a sufficient number of games to win the Page One Hundred Twentyffour ' l9Z5 I.-. f 1 ,, . f 1925 m Nll Q?1 f QW ER F' T 7 Pa f fL:::F O-.xy,12.ajf'e f 1' All lggasllreftmlfgallll J The M. I. A. A, season of 1925 will long be remembered as one in which each of the five State Teachers' Colleges developed a strong court aggregation. The championship was won by Warrensburg, a fine team which won seven out of the eight conference games. The Bearcats Hnished their conference season with three games won and five lost. The team should have been among the leaders and had it not been for injuries to Aldrich and Ioy, no doubt would have ranked much higher. With the loss of Aldrich, the team did not function smoothly at all times. Now and then they were unbeatable, but were somewhat inconsistent. After getting off to a flying start by winning from Missouri Wesleyan at Cameron, the two teams met again in Maryville. The Bearcat took another sweet victory from the Alma Mater of their coach, but showed indications of a slump. That slump arrived in the first conference game against Kirksville, the Bearcats appearing at their worst, However, they decisively.. defeated the Bulldogs on the second night and the following week left on 'an extremely long and hard road trip. Four games were played, the first being conference contests with Cape Girardeau. After traveling all night and all day, because of delayed trains. the Bearcats appeared on the court at Cape at 9:30 P. M., two hours after the game there. In spite of slow trains, automobile rides over bottom roads and a motor boat ride across the Mississippi, the Bearcats were fresh enough to win in a close. hard game. Aldrich was injured again. Cape defeated us the second night through their ability to court long shots from outside the defense. At Lebanon, Illinois, the boys lost a hard game to McKendree, a fine team. Central was too fresh for us at Fayette, win' ning by seven points. Returning home the Bearcats assured a successful season by twice easily defeating Tarkio. One game was played at each place. After these sweet victories, the boys took sweeter revenge by journeying to Springheld and walloping the Bears. The Bears were confident but were snowed under on the Hrst night, the Bearcats playing their best game of the season. The second contest was lost to the Bears by two points after a hvefminute playfoff. On the way back the boys defeated Parkville without much trouble. Then came the games with Warrensburg. We lost. and we lost to a better team. Both games were close and undecided until the last minute. Aldrich was sadly missed here. The Bearcats closed the season by defeating Park in a game in which all the boys recovered V if H ll 1 rw! their shooting eye. ll M Seasoimys Score Record i Ililliil y Maryville ....... .......................

'Ei I i in f-Q1 lL.i7h4L TQW E R, IF' c l RAY BLOOMFIELD, Captain, Center Third Year "Abie," built on the Woolxvorth type, never lost the tipfoff to an opponent. He was a true captain-the mainstay to both defense and offense. Abie will be a tower of strength for the '26 squad. DENTCN PEOPLES, Forward Second Year "Peeps" enjoyed an unusually good year. His defense was not all that could be be desired, but his offense was fine to watch. "Peeps" scored 199 points during the season, probably a record for the conference. We are looking for great things from him during 1926. He bids fair to become the iinest forward in the conference, and is already known and, consequently, watched. ERNEST ELLIS, Guard Third Year "Mickey" did not get back to school in time to get in shape with the rest of the squad. However, he rounded into condition and, when Joy was injured, Htted into the lineup smoothly. "Mickey" is a fine offensive man and although he did not hnd his eye until the last game, he showed then that he can still hit the ring. NCBLE ALDRICH, Captain-elect, Forward Second Year This was a hard luck year for Noble. In a preliminary game before Christmas, Long John Wulf and Starbuck, of the Hillyards, ocllided with Aldrich in the center of the floor, resulting in a broken collar bone for Coach Lawrence's forward. He will make a hne captain. He has the courage and the spirit. 3 - Page One Hundrecl Twentyfsevm FRANK CRANE, Center and Forward First Year Crane' is a fine basketball man. His only trouble is that he lacks confidence in him- self. Coach Lawrence thinks highly of him and is counting on fitting him into the lineup next year. At Springfield he saved the day by his play at guard. He is an all around man and has much ability. . FORREST SIMTH, Guard First Year "Smithy" was undoubtedly the hnest back guard in the conference, although this was his first year of college basketball. You watch this boy go. When he gets into high speed he resembles the famous Endacott in action. Back guard position will not worry Coach Lawrence as long as 'kSmithy" stays in school. I. E. PIERPOINT, Forward Second Year "Little Doc" was handicapped by lack of size but his playing at times was of the highest calibre. His ability with the portfside arm was very baffling to other guards and his famous onefhand push shot will long be remembered by those against whom he demonstrated it. With a little more attention to the fundamentals and teamwork, "Little Doc" would be hard to keep off the first five. CORDCN JOY, Cuard First Year Joy, a fine defensive and offensive man, was lost to the team during the last of the season because of an injury to his leg. However, his ine work at the first of the season won him his letter. We are glad that he will be with us again next year. Page- One Hundred Twentyfeiglfit 12 Hg TO w E Q W l MORRIS CHICK. Forward First Year Chick was the lightest man on the squad. He did not get into many games but when in the fight was not to be trifled with. lHis eye for the basket was not with him this season but his floor work and passing was just as good as the rest of the team. He was will' ,h d ' ' A mg ar working and loyal, and gave his best at all times-fa real thoroughbred. He will he heard from next year. OREN MASTERS, Guard i First Year "Crnie" was brought up from the Cubs and held in reserve on account of injuries to members of the squad. He did not get into competition to any extent, but was always ready and willing Had he be bl ' . en a e to practice regularly he might have been a valuable man to the team, as he had much natural ability. RUSSELL CULP, Guard Third Year "Mediocre" was a man to to be relied upon. He had a dribble that was delightful to the eye. His Hght and dependability made him a valuable man to the squad and his efforts will be missed next year. 5 Page One Hundred Twcntyfnine C Mark Davis Afton Pollard Theodore Baldwin Burl Beam "Pete" Jones fCoachj ' ' P John Hood Vernon Barrett Riley Davidson Joe raeter good basket Bearcat Quhs The Bearcat Cubs were a peppy, fighting hunch.

In the dark hours of the night, came men to man those earthworks and to oppose the flower of the German army, the crack troops of Prussia. They were new to the battlefields of France, these men, but they were fresh and eager. The armies of France were worn and exhausted and into the breach were hurled a comparative handful of American Marines. Paris, only a short 'distance away, must be saved from German hands. The French hoped that these fresh men might hold back the tide until suitable fortification might be erected behind them. The dark hour before dawn on the'-battlefield of Chateau Thierry. Orders from the rear to hold as long as possible and to then retreat to the next line of trenches. The laugh of a college man as he read those orders. His words, "Hell, we don't know how to retreat." Night on the battlefield of Chateau Thirery with the Marines holding tightly a wellfwon strip of ground, in advance of that roadway. To accomplish that which seemingly lies in the realm of the impossible, one must be filled with enthusiasm for the object in view. Cne must have the spirit. Those few Marines knew it was up to them to stem the German tide and they did it through the enthusiasm they had for their cause. Their spirit accomplished what their bodies attempted. They were not satisfied to merely do the obvious thing. In the short space of two years our institution has grown to be one of the leaders in athletic circles of the state. No longer are we the "easy marks" of our adversaries. Better men wear the More men are in school. The loyalty and support of the student body is not to be compared with that of a few years ago. Gun' letter men rank well up in the scholastic standing. Personal animosities are, for the most part, laid aside for the good of the team. The team is the thing. We are willingi to make our little personal sacrifices for the good of the team. The letter men are proiu-F1 to wear the emblems. Why? Because we have the spirit. When school spirit, such as was demonstrated in our basketball games with Warf rensburg, exists, we have every reason to be proud. Win or lose, the spirit in which the game is played, is the measure of our success. No championship laurels have as yet graced our halls. We have fought fairly, cleanly, wholefhearteclly and are proud of the records we have made. As long as school spirit, such as we now have, continues to exist, thrive and increase among us, we count not the games lost or won, but know that victory ultimately must be sure. We face the future filled with enthusiasm for the object we have in view. Yes, eager for we know success awaits us. NVe have the spirit. THE CLUB.

Page One Hundred Thifrtyfeight s pqlazsf, . s Aesthetic Dancing The classes in natural dancing feel that they have dipped into real art, if we may consider what Cooley has to say of the Art Ideal. "The Art Ideal is one of joyous selffexpressionf' 'It appeals to the imagination uby making our activities individual and creative." It is this joyous selffexpression, the making of our activities individual and creative that has given the appeal to the natural dancing work. Certain technique is necessary but the goal is to be free from formal movements and set poises. We strive toward a freedom which lets one create. It is the original work which the classes have done which has really meant the most to them-to feel freeg to be free in movement as a little child is free is to attain real grace and beauty. In such a mood, one listens with a new spirit to movements of music and a new world opens. One no longer needs depend upon stereotyped dances but one has a basis for individual creative work. Cooley says, "There is the closest possible relation in principle between the idea of Art and that of democracy. Both exalt inner selffreliancef' Freedom in dramatizing in the school should give flexibility to personality and stretch the ego in various directions. Rhythm is seen in all childhood, in all life and nature. It is a satisfaction, the basis for all art. Sense of motion is the essence of rhythm. "All that touches us moves us. Rhythm is the voice of motion, the form in which it has entry to our minds." These are bits from Lee. And since 'Rhythm is the voice of motion, the voice of the dance, the basis of all art, Lee goes farther and says that Dancing is the parent of all art. Whetliei' or not we can claim to have worked artistically, we feel that we have touched the Art ideal a bit,, and have stepped above the constraints of ordinary dancing into the realm of creative freedom.

There was never before as much enthusiasm shown in a Tower contest. The College Sheik was chosen by a committee of girls from the student body. Mr. Pierpoint was unanimously chosen. , Miss Mabel Raines was chosen as the most versatile person in S. T. C. by a vote from the college faculty. Each member of the faculty was asked to turn in the names of three persons who would best qualify according to the following qualificaf tions: 1. Their grades. 2. Their attitude. 3. General knowledge. 4. Ability. 5. Student Activities. 6. Their influence on their fellowfstudents. The student receiving the highest number of votes was considered the most Ver' satile student. Cur beauty, Miss Nellie Hall, was selected from a group of sixty by a promif nent Saint Joseph artist. Any student of the college was eligible. The coaches, Miss Manley and Mr. Lawrence, were asked to consider their athletes and choose from them the most athletic boy and girl. Miss Lorene Bruckner and Mr. Denton Peoples were selected. The students participate in all branches of athletics. Miss Bruckner, better known as "Brucky," is captainfelect for next year's basket ball team. She hikes, is a tennis champion, takes part in track and has to her credit two sweaters, one state letter, three medals and 26M hours of physical education. Denton Peoples takes part in football, basketball and Track. He is a Sophof more in College and already has earned five sweaters, one medal and a lasting fame in athletic work.

This is a problem many of us have tried to solve. Of course, We expected that "Abie" and "Crnie" were kept light and nimble by trying to dodge rolling pins. "Abie says rolling pins are good weapons when they are going instead of coming. "Ornie" believes in not giving prominence to so serious a matter, so he doesn't have anything to say. We believed that Crane joined his fowl Q relatives in their flight south. Crane says there is nothing better for a man than a good flight, but he adds that it is hard on a person whose wings have never even sprouted. fWe couldn't figure out a .sensible means for the other boys to keep in shape but we finally were informed of an insensible one. As soon as basketball closes the boys take up aesthetic dancing. Coach Lvvrence is their directress, "Peeps" is first high kicker, "Strings" second high kicker, and "Doc" is the vamp.j i l Page One Hundred Fortyfsix T 1-I 1925 V-1 58 f I l CC10dl:11'11apper Hall Here it is!

The other member of the group, jason Kemp. is also from Gallatin. Kemp is famed in S. T. C. as an architect with inventive ability, having invented the BaldfTop Dome.

Boom!" boomed the cannon starting the Second Annual Gossip Derby. "Ding dong." dinged the bell rang by the Derby official, the Hon. Essie Ward, calling the contestants back to the line for an even start. Ethel Mae was laughing when the signal had been given so her competitors had a slight advantage. The entrants in this year's Derby. Ethel Mae Gibson, Euel Ramsey and Mary Curl, are beyond question the three best gossip peddlers on the campus. They are all well known to the student body, have had years of experience. and have the advantage over the newspaper and radio in that all gossip handled by them is absolutely fresh, never stale because of cold storage. The contest was held in the lbrary, the course on which each contestant has won much fame. The crowd was unusually large, the grandstand and bleachers being filled to over' flowing. The judges, Guy Canaday, Lou Mutz, and Robert Birbeck. had a great deal of trouble because there were so many persons clamoring for entrance who were not eligible. Orpha Stewart was ruled out because of her victory last year. To assuage her disappointment she was given the position of announcer, formerly held by Eulah Mae Pearce. Mildred Kiser Daniels, another entrant of last year, was disqualified because she is now married and has conse' quently a greater opportunity to practice the art. The contestants, having returned to the starting line, were given soda crackers to check the flow of gossip until all were ready for the signal. The instant the cannon boomed Ethel Mae took the lead with a story about what hapf pened at a radio party in the new house but Mary passed her up with a tale about Mr. W-allin's new suit and the demand for a reclining chair in the long history room. Much ability was displayed by the third entrant, Euel Ramsey, cutting down the lead considerable with a bit of gossip about what was in Mr. Phillip's locker in the Education office and how Jessamine William's notes had saved the backfseat students of' Economics in last week's test. The mystery of Stewart's new green ring gave the lead again to Ethel Mae, but almost at the same instant Euel leaped a whole lap ahead, telling why a certain member of the science department never takes a leave of absence. lt seems that every time he makes up his mind to go he strikes up a new "affair" with some fair feminine instructor and a change of plans is necessitated fdeafening applause from crowdj. Mary came into her own again here with a tale about Residence Hall drive being plowed up by a certain car one damp Sunday evening in February and how lohn Allen and his new "case" happened to be locked up in the library Cmore applause and wild demonstrating on the part of certain students in crowdg Derby official maintained order, howeverj. Into the home stretch came the entrants, running neck to neck. Mary began talking with her eyes at this point and Ethel gestulated violently. The third contestant remained outwardly calm, disclosing some choice secrets about Lorene Hartley's "hope chest." Ethel Mae voiced the complaint of many of the cofeds when she exclaimed that she just couldn't study in the library since Shiek Sam Evans of the library force had begun parting his hair in the middle. Euel here made the contribution which won him the decision. He was passing along the first floor corridor one day when he witnessed a very unusual sight for college: a member of the faculty adminisf tering corporal punishment! He distinctly saw Dean Colbert spanking Blanche Erickson before the whole Calculus class. Of course, his opponents were very indignant over the decision but Euel is satished. It is obvious that he won the contest by winning the favor of the feminine judge. As a direct result of the Derby Mr. Wells threatened to stop all social conversation in the library. Page One Hundred Sixtyfone IQZ5 'il 'Dm TO xv 15 tllakas Mr. Glen to former student about big rabbit huntj: "Oh, you should have been with mc, two and onefhalf of we men killed seventy rabbits!" Ferd Masters fin revengej: "And who were the other two men?" RECAPITULATION fAccording to Lawrence Conway's own written statementsj. ORPHA LOVES ME. She is a prizefwinning conversationalist. She is a male sympathizer and trainer. She is a highly intellectual Senior. She coaches Paul Robey and McNulty in Spanish. She reads Shakespeare's "Lost Needle" intelligently. She plays the Perrin Hall victrola in a classical way. I HATE ORPHA. I LOVE TREVA. She dresses to extreme. She devotes little time to History of Education. She craves the Electric and Home Talent Plays. "Bob Nicholas is her ideal actor and Gordon Noach is her "Shiek." TREVA HATES ME. ' I AM GOING TO MARRY LENA. She is specializing in HOME ECONOMICS. George Newman has a good job contracted for in the next war. He will sit in Washington and deliver encouraging speeches to the fighting men over the radio. Once upon a time there was a little bright eyed girl who a little curl right in the middle of her forehead and when she was good she was very good but when she was bad she visited her lady friend over night and went to late show with the Student Council President.

But I'm not so dense, Cause I've acquired Common Sense In the "Fraqus." "Tubhv" Cook: "I see they are installing lamp posts from Residence Hall to 4th Street." Bob Nicholas: "Yes, I think they have a notion of connecting it up with the outside world after dark." According to Dr. Keller's Theory: "To blame a young man for being in love is like chiding one for being ill." This has Paul Rever's ride beaten a mile: Ravmon Brown took a flying trp to Union Star fnot Marsj. not stuck twice. spent five dollars for gasoline. ten dollars for new tire. two dollars for hiring a team to Dull him out of the mud. and decided he didn't have enough cash left to "Say it with Flowers" and came back to Bachelor's Hall without a sight of the individual he went to visit.

Irene: "What did you have for luncheon today?" Ermil: "I don't know, I ate at Residence Hall." Dean Barnard pacifying Russel Hamilton: "It is better to be broke than never to have loved at all." Nevertheless, it could be worse. Suppose the Tower was published daily. Coach Lawrence: "Joy and Pierpoint are not taking the proper exercise I asked." Coach Iones: "You told them to exercise with dumbfbells and I saw them out walking with a couple of Residence Hall girls last night." Mli- LO. THE INTELLECTUAL SENIOR HEAD He is Scholastic. He is an E student. He dwelleth among his own classrnen.male and female alike, and talketh confidentially of his art of advertising. He letteth his neighbor talk and he keepeth silent and discourseth long with Vesta. He weareth not ranger hats or red neckties but he mocketh not the wearers thereof. When he wanteth knowledge he lodgeth himself in a classroom and weareth the knowing look of the Senior. but the Instructor's questions misseth the Senior for she knoweth the look of the knowing. p t ut we know in our heart that we too would be scholastic of E standing-BUT for the B , , lack of the Instruc.tor's understanding. Web Young: "I told my girl what I thought of her last night after the Carnival." Jason: "What did she say?" Web: "I love you, too." There was a hush in Assembly, an ominous statement was about to be made. Everyone knew it as Mr. Lamkin had just donned that look for making distasteful announcements and cleared his throat three times. . - A . I "I regret to state." Prexy began.

I will give them until 4:20 to report to my office. Failure to do so will mean automatic dismissalfer-that is all. By 4:30 four hundred students had called at Mr. Lamkin's office.

The latest effort for improvements in and about the college this spring is the installation of glass doors in the Conservatory of Music which is in the basement of the "dorm," This im' provement would meet a twoffold need, Hrst, those within the Conservatory could practice and recite without interruption by "investigators" from upstairs, and, second, those without could more easily satisfy their curiosity by being able to see inside. We hear that Dean Barnard has left the Dormitory. We do not know what ulterior motive prompted this action, but we do know that Ned Colbert is now staying home of evenings. Mr. Hake says that Hell is paved with good intentionsg Dr. james says that Heaven is paved with gold bricks, Temple says the Dorm is paved with bliss, and Duane Whitford says the Dean's office is paved withl? The Stroller has been very interested in collecting some characteristic idiosyncrasies of the faculty and a little bird has told us the following: Mr. Clough-Biggest broadcasting station south of Shenandoah. Mr. Jones+Just 'Peten who is accustomed to standing with his back to the wall at certain times. Miss Martin-She give such long lectures on studying that the ordinary student can only absorb oneffourth of them. Miss Terhune-It has been said that when she comes to class with her hat off her students know her not-she's better looking with her hat on, however. Mr. Rogers-Did you bring your signed excuse for your absence? Mr. Rickenbrode-lDid you ever hear Mr. Rickenbrode bark? A barking dog never bites. Mr. Cook-All right, students, we'll take our proverbial ten pages. Mr. Colbert-Should be an ethics teacher. Can discuss anything from calculus to honey' moons. Mr. Annett-Paderewski, after losing his hair. Mr. Lamkin-"Aren't you students going to the assembly?" Mr. Glenn-'Tm busy, my office hour is at ten." Margaret Franken-You'd better get to work or I'll flunk you flat in practice teaching. Katherine Franken-"My goodness! I've forgotten, did I have an appointment with you?5' Mr. Foster-"Students, students, you must read between the lines and think between the words." ' Miss Dykes-"I am shocked to think that students don't know enough to capitalize the names of the days of the week." Miss Delsuce-Does anyone know whether she met her class today or not? I stayed twenty minutes, then I left. Mr. Lawrence+Has a good vocabulary, uses it fluently at times. Mr. Keller-Moral questions, including matrimony. are his hobby.

I Page One Hundred Sixtyffve 1929 . 'IT'-?'1ff TOWE12.JlT'Lss M Jo The Jumping can Senorita Pepita Gonzales was annoyed. Every motion of the old hammock she lay in disclosed that. It swung back and forth indignantly as the Senorita pushed it forcibly with her dainty foot. "But I love you, Senoritaf' insisted Parfirio Bruz. "If you do, leave me alone," came the emphatic answer of the Senorita. "But your mother has just the same as placed you in the marriage market. She has offered you to any man with a fortune who will marry you. I have come to present myself as a suitorf' "I don't love you, Parfiriof' The young man shrugged. "Do you love any of them? But why don't you love me? I'm young, handsome, and rich. You know that I alwaysll' "That's just the reason. Always you have gotten just anything that you wanted, from sombreros to the finest ranch in the whole state of Sonora." ' But Senorita, --" "Never mind. I'm going to show you that you can't get me by just merely snapping your fingers at me as you would at your dog." "Please, Senorita--" "Go home now, Senor. You may come again tonight. We shall talk it over then." She watched him ride away into the desert. The now gently swinging hammock showed that the Senorita was thinking. Senorita Peuita lived with her widowed mother, near Hermosillo, in rather straightened circumstances. The Senorita's mother was anxious for her daughter to marry well, to replenish the emptied family coffers, and without exactly offering her for sale, let it be known that her daughter was in the marriage market. lwfany suitors had presented themselves at the once hand' some but not dilapidated rural hacienda, where the mother and daughter lived. The two chief suitors were Parhrio Bruz, a handsome young cattleman, with a ranch of his own, and a swarthy personage by the name of Antonio de Sanchez, who had been a general under the late Pancho Villa, and who still wielded a powerful influence. Both were wellftofdo and the Senorita's mother would have been quite content with either match, but the Senorita certainly did not wish to marry yet. She and her mother had had many heated arguments about the injustness of it. as But, Madre mia, I tell you that I don't love either of them." "That is not the question," replied the Senora. "This is not to be a marriage for love." "But why must I marry?" Because, we cannot live in these circumstances any longer. "But I am so young--only nineteen. And besides, I don't want to marry ,yet." Ls You are the priettiest and most clever girl in the whole State of Sonora. Yes, you will marry well," answered the mother. . "Oh, you are cruel!" cried the girl. As the Senorita reclined in the gently moving hammock she was rudely aroused from her reverie by the quick gallop of a cavalry hourse, and she recognized it as being that of Antonio de Sanchez. A feeling of disgust swept over her. She hated the mockery of this selling of her life, her very soul! Yet if it must be she would get it over with quickly. She could not endure any longer the torture that it was inflicting upon her. She knew that there was no escape from it, so as if meeting her Fate, she turned to greet the commanding figure of the swarthy "general" "Buenos dias, Senor Sanchez. You have come early, but not so early as Senor Bruzf' "The Senor might just as well stay at home and tend to his own business. He is not going to marry you. I have come to have your final answer." "Senor Bruz came for that same purpose," she ventured. Page One Hundred Sixtyfsix rr -aa -If-jj Dhe Tow E R jp "I am sure that the Senorita would never consent to be the wife of Senor Bruz. Will not the Senorita marry me?" 'iBut I do not love you, Senor. I hate you! You are cruel and wicked!" "Do you love Parfirio Bruz," he asked. .The girl hesitated. "I hate both of you," she cried passionately. 'LYou steal my happiness, my joy! You take away all the pleasure of my life! I hate both of you!" "But your mother says you must marry," reminded the "general," - "Si, Senor, I know." "Then why not choose'now?" he urged. ' "Oh, I can't! Go away, Senor. Come back tonight. I shall give you your answer then." Pepita Gonzales watched her second suitor ride away into the desert, then she wandered out into her garden, the only remaining place of beauty around the old hacienda. As she wandered about she realized that perhaps she should never again walk through her old Mexican garden as she was walking through it now. She had just a few hours more to decide. Which one should she choose? Pepita had her own ideas as to marriage. She firmly believed that love should be its controlling factor, and she felt sure that she did not love either of them, then too, she must give Senor Bruz his long needed lesson. Walking down an old path, she espied a queer weed, and a brilliant idea came to her. Of course. How stupid of her not to have thought of that long ago. She would not have to choose. They should gamble for her with the jumping bean! The jumping bean is no new thing-though it has not been extensively know in the United States. It is not really a "bean" at all, but a seed capsule pod of the species of weed called the spurge. A certain kind of moth lays its eggs on this plant, and the tiny larva, or caterpillar, soon after it is hatched from the eggs, bores its way into the soft, undeveloped pod. As the pod grows larger and harder, something like an irregularly shaped bean, the caterpillar inside also grows, and hollows out the inside of the pod as a home for itself. If left in its natural state, it eventually bores its way out and becomes a moth, just as the butterfly caterpillar bursts its cocoon and becomes a butterfly. It is the movement of this caterpillar inside the bean that causes it to jump. The cater' pillar attaches itself by the head, with elastic strands which it weaves as a spider does, to one side of the interior of the bean, and with these strands catapults itself headffirst against the side of its house, causing it sometimes actually to "jump" an inch or even higher from the ground. With other threads it is partially able to guide the direction of the movement. Instinct teaches it that it develops best in a moderate tempertaure, and and the result is that as soon as it feels excessive warmth it begins jumping to move into a different temperature. Beyond the Rio Grande, this Mexican "jumping bean" takes the place of dice as the chief national gambling pastime, more exciting even than poker or "African golf." The game is simple. They make a chalk circle three or feet in diameter on the hard earth, or on the floor. Each gambler places his bean in the center of the circle and then bet their sombreros on which bean will nrst jump or roll outside the circle. just at sunset Parhrio Bruz started toward the old Mexican haciendo with a heavy heart. His handsome face was darkened by thoughts of what the evening's events might bring forth. He loved Pepita. He had told her upon several occasions but she had refused to listen to hirn, and tonighthe was blaming himself because he had not been more bold and forceful. He had been too powerless in her presence. He had sat in speechless wonder and watched her deftly turn the conversation into other channels. She had always put him off as she had this morning, telling him he was selfish. She was right. He could go to any town and claim any girl he wanted, but Pepitas seemed to always escape him, to always get the better of him. He should have more of the commanding attitude of Senor Antonio de Sanchez. That worthy person was at that moment riding toward Young Bruz. They met not far from the home of Pepita. "The Senor Bruz is going to receive the beautiful Senorita's hnal answer, tonight?" ques' tioned the older man. x "I am, Senor. And you?" "The charming Senorita will marry me, tomorrow," drawled the powerful man slowly and emphatically. Bruz was hurt and angry. Page One Hundred Sixtyfseven 'B' R' Ili ini 4 1925 S ,, .. , Fiiajahe TO xv E iq in fr Jo 'LWe shall see, Senor," he replied. "Yes, we shall see," said the Senor Antonio dc Sanchez, evenly. They arrived at the house and were met at the door by Senora Gonzales. "Pepita will be down, directly," she told them. The unhappy girl entered the room, beautiful in her attire of lace, mantilla, and festal ribbons. ' Parhrids hands clenched at his side and he stepped toward her as if to take her in his arms. "Pepital" he whispered. Senor Sanchez smiled broadly, and a very satished expression settled upon his repulsive face. "You are very beautiful, Senoritaf' he said, bowing very low. "Here is your answer," she said and stretched forth her hand, in which lay two jumping beans. 'LGamble for you!" exclaimed Parfirio. "The Senorita has indeed done a very wise thing," said the "general," approvingly. "The Senorita must know that I am the best gambler near here," he added. He seemed indeed, quite satished. Parfirio stared at Pepita. Gamble for her? He could not conceive of the idea. He loved her too much to bargain for her in such a common manner. But as usual she had her way before he could ind words to check her, by saying, "A ring has been prepared on the earthen floor of the patio. Come! Here are your beans." As she glanced up at Parfirio, she gave a start of surprise. Why did he look at her in such a manner? She looked up at him again, and then Pepita met her fateg for at last the will of Parfirio had come into its own, dominating hers. Through his eyes she read his heart. A doubt flashed through her mind that he could never gamble against Antonio de Sanchez. Because of that and of the shock of the suddenness of her discovery she did not flash back to him the answer that lay in her heart. And thus went Parnrio into a losing game, heartsick and discouraged. He knew the repuf tation of his opponent-and then, too, what was the use? Pepita did not love him. With muttered prayers to the Holy Virgin, each placed his jumping bean in the center of the enclosure. Pepita was speechless. She knew now that she loved Parfirio, but she had been too hasty. It was too late. She looked at the two men. Parfirio looked sad and disappointed. He looked upon the game uninterestedly. Her heart went out to him in his grief. She glanced at Antonio and shuddered. He looked like a fiend, a devil, in his delight. The little beans, startled into activity by the heat of the torches, began to twitch and jump and roll, first this way and then that. Pepita could endure it no longer. Before either bean had moved more than a few inches she made a last attempt by screaming, 'Stop it! You must stop. I will marry-Parfirio Bruz!" But it was too late, Antonio de Sanchez protested. The Senora took sides with him. a Shameless girl, you refused to choose when a choice was offered you, and now you shall marry the man whose bean Hrst jumps outside the circle!" ' The game went on. The little beans leaped, pitched, and bounded around the enclosure. Pepita fastened her eyes upon Parfirio's bean. It skipped and danced around and Pepita knew it was going to win her happiness. But her pleasure vanished when her eyes saw the second "bean" leap to within one inch of the white mark. She leaned forward, her face white and drawn and she prayed to the Holy Virgin to keep it within the circle. She saw that Parfirio was beside himself-since she had announced her decision, he had taken a new interest in the gameaand she heard Antonio de Sanchez swear delightedly under his breath. Paririo cried aloud for joy when his "bean" jumped a fraction ahead of Antonio's "bean," and Pepita clapped her hands for joy-oh. he would win, he must won!-but her face blanched and she sobbed pitiously as Antonio's ubeanu took a second bound, to land an inch fully without the circle. Antonio de Sanchez had won. MRS. DORTHA MAPES WENNIHAN Page One Hundred Sixtyfeight r- 192 5 -- A .din . ..

To them is-sleep! E. G. McLaughlin. "It's my heart," he explained to himself,-"my heart. I guess I'm getting old." Old Man Baldwin staggered across the worn floor of his little store and slumped wearily down in the aldffashioned splintfbottom chair in the doorway. He gasped for breath a few times, then lifted a letter with fingers that trembled and read it again, slowly, through eyes that were dimmed with age and toil and tears. He would have to give it up now, this little store that had been his for so long. It wasn't much of a store, just an old frame building that he had built back in seventyfthree, just a little general store that didn't have any trade in these days of cars and mailforder houses. But it was the place where his heart was and he didn't want to give it up. Four hundred dollars by Monday or be ruined! That was the ultimatum. He had been expecting something of the sort ever since the mortgage had fallen due a month before. But he didn't think John Atherton would force payment like this, John had lots of money and didn't need to ruin an old man. Somehow he iad had the faith of a child that everything would be all right in the endg but here was the letter, ,o sudden and so imperative that he was stunned. Monday-and this was Thursday! He held the letter long after he became unconscious that it was still in his hands, and his eyes moved laboriously over the lines again and again, despite the fact that the message they bore had burned into his brain the first time he read it. The terrible message sank deeper and deeper into his heart and he became limp and halffconscious. Great tears slid down his wrinkled face and fell unheeded on the letter, on his worn dusty suit, and on the rough boards of the Floor. To him four hundred dollars was almost a fortune. He had never had the shrewdness in business that makes for fortune building. He was a man who had a childflike faith in humanity and a generosity toward those less fortunate than he, which had made his little store a Hnancial failure. He could not borrow the four hundred, and he couldn't earn it, for his store had no customers any more. Here he sat, despondent, weeping like a child, he was an old man, hopelessly, hopelessly old. These were the days when he should be living comfortably on the fruits of his life of toil. These were the days when he should be resting before a pleasant Ere with his grandchildren clustered about him. Instead, he had ia burden on his heart the like of which he had never known before, and had only one child, Lucy, a spinster of fortyfhve, whose ingratitude and terrible temper made his life miserable, but whom he worshipped with all the fatherflove he would liked to have lavished upon many children and grandchildren. There was, however, one way in which he might get the money. A delicate sense of honor had prevented his considering it seriously before, it had seemed too much like taking money from the spirits of the deadg but the need was so imperative that he thought it all .over and decided to try it. His mind traveled swiftly back over the years and he lived again in his young manhood and thought over the cricumstance through which he could claim the money. The town vanished from before his eyes and he saw a lone cabin in the midst of a great forest in western Iowa. A onefroom cabin fashioned of crude logs, a cabin whose building had been a work of love and within whose walls there was more peace and more of the home spirit than could be found in any millionaire's mansions. Well he remembered their coming to the little clearing. There had been long days of rough traveling through the dense and dangerous undergrowth and then one afternoon he halted the F Page One Hundred Sixtyfnine l 92 9 L, a. t I as s a 'il ' H fjlfyhe XV E R FL at ' no covered wagon by the side of a little stream and leaped to the ground. Ah, he was young and stalwart then, and handsome enough to turn the heart of any maid! He stood straight and tall and fearless and looked back east where lay the long road over which they had come. There was the home of his boyhood, and there was civilization. He looked westward where the sun had cut a slant yellow path through the dense foliage. ,Hei looked down at the little stream at his feet, running clear and swift through the glade. Then he looked up at the darkening sky and there was something in his eyes that cannot be put into words. He had heard the challenge of the great untamed west and had accepted! And the look in his eyes said, "I have run well thus far," and also, "I will not turn back." He turned toward the wagon and called softly, "Mary," "Mary, dear, this is our home." "Home," she repeated softly. "Our new home," he echoed like a benediction. So these two came into the wilderness with unlimited' courage, with love for each other, and with the fear of God in their hearts, and the wilderness could not but respond to their touch. By fall a rude little cabin nestled close against the thick undergrowth of the forest and enough had been stored away in the leanfto of the cabin to carry them through the winter months. With the Hrst frost came another wagon to the clearing, and Sidney Allen and his pretty French wife were welcomed with open arms, for the Baldwins longed for human companionishp. The two families shared the same cabin, the same joys and sorrows through that awful winter. Hunger came, and cold, and sickness, but with the first warm, sweet breezes from the south their vigor and courage returned. Baldwin and Sidney were like brothers and all through the summer they worked together. Crops were sown and gathered and another cabin was built in the clearing. Two winters passed, and by then the settlement boasted twelve cabins, twelve families who had answered the lure of the west. Baldwin built his store building in seventyfthree and served the village as harness mender, Storekeeper, and blacksmith. He was also preacher and school teacher. The children of the town came to him every afternoon to receive instruction in ciphering, and it was he who read the comforting Scripture whenever one of their number was laid away in the grave. Sidney looked upon Baldwin as an older brother and brought all his troubles to him. He needed a new horse, and Baldwin loaned him the money. He couldn't pay his store bill and Baldwin gave him credit. When he needed a new plow, or his wife was ill, or his crop failed, he came to Baldwin as a son to a father and the matter was attended to. Not that Baldwin was rich, but he had a heart as big as his smile and a friendship as strong as the clasp of his hand. Sidney once mentioned the matter of giving notes for the debts, but the other only laughed. "The word of a friend, my boy, is better than awrtiten agreement. I know you will pay when you are able." One October afternoon when the purple haze hung low over the treetops and the log cabins, when the lazy smoke of evening fires curled up from the clearing, tragedy came to the Village. Young Sidney was busy clearing the tract of land back of his cabin and the sharp rhythmic stroke of his ax rang clear in the still air. Suddenly there was a mighty crash as the tree fell, one scream of pain, and silence. They picked him up a few moments later and carried him, limp and unconscious, into his cabin. Baldwin, on the scene in an instant, sent immediately to New Market, thirty miles away, for a doctor, and Baldwin and his wife kept a vigil in the sick room through the long night. Just as morning came fresh and cool over the fields, there in the same room where her hus' band lay near death, the wife of young Allen gave birth to a son. In the same rude little room were the two great mysteries of life, birth and death, and both were as mysterious and won' derful in a frontier cabin as they would have been in a king's palace. So Sidney looked upon his son before he died and thanked God that he had been spared long enough for that. That afternoon the doctor took the man's hand and told him he was near death. "I don't mind going, Doc, only' on account of my boy, here, and the little wife." His eyes, bright with fever, sought hers across the room and there was complete understanding be- tween them. When she spoke it was softly, through her tears: "We'll miss you, Sidney, the boy and I, but l've named him Sidney Allen, and he'll grow up to be a good man like you." A long silence, heavy with unspoken words. "We've been very happy together, Jean." Page One Hundred Seventy c l92 5 ll S we T4 Q g: .I ':That we have, Sidney. I can always be better because of the remembering of these years. Sidney caught his breath in a sob. "Co to sleep, little Jean, and we'll talk again tomorrow." He was growing very weak now. At last he spoke and the two men leaned down to catch the words. . "Can't you brace me up a little, Doc, so I can talk to Baldwin?" "It will shorten your life several hours." "No matter, I must talk to him." So the two friends talked long together and looked deep into each others eyes, for they knew they soon must part. "I want to tell you, Baldwin, that I am not afraid to go." "I know it, my lad. You will be brave." "Brave, yes. But the wife, Baldwin, and little Sidney---, if I could just live for them!" "Dont worry, .my boy. Mary and I will see that they get through the winter, and when the trail IS open again, she can go back to Vermont if she wants to." Sidney seemed satisfied. After a long moment he said: . "There is one thing, my debt to you." "Let that be forgotten." "No, it is a debt that will be paid. I cannot live to pay it, but my boy, he will live to be a great and good man, and he will pay." He turned his head painfully and looked across the room at his sleeping wife and child. "Little Sidney," he spoke softly and the tears were streaming down the pale cheeks, "my son, there is a duty that is laid upon you before you are a day old. It is a debt of honor, little one, and some day-some-day-" ' ' His voice trailed away into silence. The two men gripped hands in the stillness of the oncoming night and in a moment the hands of the younger had grown cold and stiff. Baldwin drew back, astonished! Sidney was gone! So this was death, this cruel, white stillness that had cut him off in his best years and left a cold, lifeless form to be laid beneath the ground. That was a terrible winter. The still cold hung over the world for months without a break. The Baldwin family sacrificed to care for the delicate French widow and her child. Lucy had no coat that winter, they had meat only once every two days, they sold one of the horses when the baby was taken ill, the money they had saved for a new carpet went to send Mrs. Allen and the baby back to Vermont. But somehow Baldwin was happy, for he had kept his word to his friend. Old Man Baldwin shifted his position and his mind returned to the present. ,lean Allen had married again back East, he recalled, and her son was now a successful lawyer in Chicago. Would it be all right to go and see the boy? If he was as wealthy as they said, it would be no burden for him to pay the debt now. And four hundred dollars would save him and Lucy. The old man wasn't thinking of himself, but of Lucy. Mary had been dead these twenty years and Lucy kept house for him. She wouldn't have any husband to care for her after he was goneg and somehow he felt that he was going soon now. If he could just pay the debt, then' Lucy could sell everything after he was dead. Yes, he would go and see young Allen and tell him all about it. He arose from the chair with more alacrity than usual, locked up the store ,and started home. He stopped at the railroad station on his way home: "Tom, how much is a ticket to Chicago?" The agent was dumfounded. "Who's dead?" "No one, just going to Chicago." Baldwin didn't want to be questioned. This was his own affair and he wanted to work it out his own way. "Fifteen dollars," the agent turned to his telegraph key. Old Baldwin stood undecided for a moment, then went on home. Arriving there he reached up on the clock shelf and took down a little vase. He poured its contents on the table. Dimes, quarters, and halffdollars there! were, the money they had started to save for Lucy's college education. When mother died she had to give it up, and the money had been used, little by little, until there remained only twenty dollars and ua half. Well, when he got the money, he would have plenty to get his ticket home besides paying the debt. Page One Hundred Sevenfone 1025 F31 'alpha TQXVEQP J He slept the sleep of a child that night. Qnce he turned over in his sleep and murmured. "It will be all right. Sidney is a man like his father. He will pay." Next morning when the train sped eastward over gleaming rails, there crouched in the far corner of a seat a little old man who semed to be frightened by the noise and who stared timidly and childishly at the passengers. He hadn't told Lucy. She wouldn't have let him come. She would have written a letter. But Lucy didn't know. She didn't understand. She couldn't explain it like he could. Anyway, she would be surprised when he came back with the money and told her. On and on the train sped. It seemed queer to be riding on a train. He hadn't been on a train for-let's see-five years now. That was when his brother's wife died at Mercer. A year before that his niece at Clearmont had died and he had gone to the funeral. But always Lucy was along. She knew so much about tickets and checks for grips. Q' Chicago at last! Great, bristling, roaring Chicago, where Big Business is king, and all is hurry and rush and noise. She asks of every man: "What have you to give me?" And if he has not youth, or strength, or money, or talent, he is cast aside like a discarded cloak. So the old man of eighty, coming into the impersonal, roaring surge of city life was tossed carelessly here and there. He walked aimlessly with the crowd, not knowing what to do or where to go. Finally, tired and despairing, he approached a policeman timidly. "Can you tell me, sir, where to find 'Sidney Allen, the lawyer?" The cop was a young Irishman who had a heart in him and he said: 'Tll look him up for you." So the name was found in the directory of lawyers and lzate that afternoon old man Baldwin stood just inside a magnificent white stone building and read on a brass plate on the wall. "Sidney Allen, lawyer, 1306." "Elevator going up!" a voice so close beside him that he was frightened. There was a youngster in a blue uniform peering out through the iron fretfwork of a queer little gateflike door. The door slid open and the boy beckoned. "Where do you want to go?" "I want to see Sidney Allen, the lawyer." Theold man cast wary glances inside the cageflike little room and stepped in slowly. "1306,l' the boy chirped, and before the man realized it he was whisked up into the air with a jerk that sent his heart up into his mouth and took all the breath out of him. Up and up they shot with a swiftness that was sickening and at last an abrupt stop sent the blood pounding madly in his temples. He staggered dizzily as he stepped out. "What's the matter?" queried the boy. "It's my heart," he explained, "my heart, I guess I'm getting old." Down the long whiteftiled floor he walked, past many heavy mahogany doors. The door at the end of the hall caught his eye, for it was 1306. A great wave of tenderness swept toward the man behind that door. He was Sidney's boy! Seemed like his own son. If he had only had a son! He would want his boy to be a big strong fellow like Sidney was. He knew what Sidney Junior would be like, how he would grasp his hand and be glad to talk about his father. It was pioneers like his father who had made this sort of thing possible, this great city, this wonderful building, and the success of Sidney Allen, Iunior. . - He entered the door a bit timidly and a halffdozen people in the waiting room turned a curious stare upon the queer looking old man who seemed to have stepped out of a previous generation. A trim little office boy approached him. "See Mr. Allen?" "Yes.' "Be about an hour," the boy went on cheerfully, "you can wait, though," and he pointed to a chair. Baldwin dropped into a chair and tried to be at ease, but the eyes of the other people in the room embarrassed him. There was a dashing young flapper in a bright sport suit who stared at him rudely all the while she was not adding more rouge to her already crimson cheeks. There were several young fellows with the air of having seen much of life ,who cast amused and cynical glances from behind newspapers. Ah, well, the old man recovered himself, it would be all right when he got to see Sidney. He knew the boy would laugh when' he told him about the time they had a dance at the school house and somebody put gun powder in the stove. Then there was the timei Page One Hundred Seventyftwo -- ffilgln ur, We Uhr- TO W ri 12 In fd I3 . VL So lost in pleasant memories, he awaited his turn. Finally a boy tapped him on the shoulder and he followed into a wellfequipped office where half a dozen typewriters clicked incessantly and where several men and women hurried here and there with their hands full of papers. There was a stir in the office as he entered, and a giggle rippled over the row of typists. The men winked at each other and smiled. l In the far corner of the room was the man he had come to see, his sleek, wellfgroomed head bent over the papers before him. When Baldwin had reached the desk, Allen looked up and Look the old man in at a glance, a long, searching, impersonal glance. 'LWell?" There was something in the crisp, businessflike tone, in the cool hard glance that stunned Baldwin like a blow in the face. "Are you,i" he'choked. "Are you Sidney Allen?" "What do you want?" the great lawyer was in a hurry. There didn't seem to be much .noney in this old man. Baldwin rallied. "I knew your father when he died. We were pioneers togtherf' His tone was like that of a condemned man pleading for someone to listen. "I never saw my father." The lawyer was not interested. He drummed nervously on the great mahogany desk with his polished finger nails. The story came out slowly, wearily, as though the speaker were so tired he could not frame .he words without great effort. L'Your father was younger than I. I helped him get started. I loaned him money several times and gave his credit at the store." He paused. The lawyer was hardly listening. His eyes were on the paper in front of him. The desk seemed to widen. It seemed that Allen was a mile away and that between them there stretched an interminable plain of polished mahogany. He would have to shout to be heard. His throat became parched and dry. He cleared" it with a queer sound. Allen glanced up. Desperately, frantically, the old man floundered on, straining every nerve to make himself heard across that long shining distance. "Your father was killed by a falling tree. He died before he could pay' meg but he promised that if I ever needed the money you would pay the debt. And now I need--" "Have you any notes to show that my father owed you money?" "No" He thought the din of the typewriters would drive him frantic. His mind reeled. He wanted to sink down and cry. With one great effort he recovered his voice. "No-1" he repeated, "just his promise that he would pay." L'Well, you couldn't collect anything according to law, you know." The great lawyer lifted an eyebrow and glanced at an office boy. The interview was over. The boy took the old man by the arm and led him out the door and through the waiting room. Ah, they could stare now, the young flappers and the clever business men, but Baldwin saw nothing, felt nothing. The door of 1306 closed behind him. He reeled and staggered down the hall a few steps, his breath coming in short, quick gasps. 'LIt's my heart," he explained to himself, 'Lmy heart-my heart?" he repeated it me chanically over and over. Then quietly and slowly he sank down in the nearest doorway, a pitiful, huddled little form. He was so tired! A few short gasps-one long shuddering breath-and all was still. Inside 1306 the typewriters of big business clicked incessantly, but he did not hear. -ELIZABETH D. MILLS.
