Smitt) TLoan Ifcxinb of ) Louisiana State formal School Alumni " Association iHE Alumni Association of the Normal School maintains a fund known a? the Abby L. Smith Loan Fund, from which temporary loans are made to the students in the three last terms of the Nor- mal Course. Only those persons who have already been students of the school and have proved their intellectual and moral fitness for the teaching work can secure loans from this fund. They pledge themselves to repay such loans out of their first year ' s earning, after graduation, at six per cent interest. At the meeting of the Alumni Association in New Orleans in April, 1913, the Abby L, Smith scholarship maintained by the Alumni Association since 1897 was discontinued. This scholarship paid the entire expenses of one student at the Normal School, and by means of it nine young women were educated and sent into schools of the State. All funds of the Alumni As- sociation, including the Five Thousand Dollar Alumni Loan Fund, havi been merged into a general fund, known as the Abby L. Smith Loan Fund. This fund is now approximately four thousand four hundred dollars. Out of this the Alumni has helped between eighteen and twenty students dur- ing the session of 1914-15. More than a hundred and fifty students have received financial aid through loans. yUv .first Kmpression of the 5tormal evi:i; vnoHY has his trials and tribulation! and m i. m i Fresbie " at th Nor mal. had mine the train puffed into Nat ' 01) friend and I nibbed our suit-cases and hurried out lust as i stepped orr tbe train, s " whom I afterwards discovered was Mr. WInstead) grabbed mj luit-caai l. thinking he was a thief, relied stop him. stop him!

" Who are they — all those ladies and that man? " I remem- ber asking, swinging my feet. And Edith, who always knew : everything in a mysterious sort of way. redied. enigmatically: " They ' re the Alumni. " " The what? " I ventured. But Edith deigned not to answer. 1 sat there and regretted that grown people and folks who always knew everything were not more communicative. " Well, what is the Alumni? " I asked, desperately. Edith said, " Sh-sh! " and frowned; for the line was passing us now, and Edith, who occupied the end seat, was engaged in feeling the ladies ' dresses. " What is the Alumni? " I whispered again in Edith ' s ear. And Edith whispered back: " Goosie! " She alluded to me, of course, and she used the expressive and classic term that the knowing ones applied to one of the ignorant mass. I sank into discouraged silence. School was the most mysterious institution, anyway. You started in the first grade — I was a first-grader — and it seemed that you went up, up, up forever and ever and ever. And then, some day, when you were grown, you wore a shimmering white gown and tarried flowers, and you graduated. It was not unlike getting married. I reflected on all this, swinging my feet. I had flattered myself that I knew all about school. I even knew that Miss Bessie and Miss Lawless and Mrs. McVoy and several others were called " The Faculty. " But here w r as something new — the Alumni, a long line of beautiful ladies and one gentleman that marched in behind the Faculty and occupied the front seats, and received as great an ovation as the graduates themselves. " The Alumni — the Alumni — Alumni. " I repeated it over and over to myself until the three mysterious syllables fell trippingly from my tongue. " Alumni, Alumni " — what were they? Where were they? And xliy were they? When the program was nearly over. I remember that a great tall man, whom people spoke of in awed tones as " The President, " announced that there would be a meeting of the Alumni after the exercises, followed by a reception. On our way home 1 sought information from Edith again: but her replies were eva- sive, and she suggested hastily that we race down the hill to the wishing-tree. I raced sullenly. No wonder Edith knew so much. She had a brother and loads of cousins who lived and moved and had their being in that vague, distant sphere known as " The Normal Department. " And I had nobody. My sisters were aged two and four, respectively, and knew absolutely nothing about the world outside our garden gates: and my mother and father were not given to imparting knowledge, being greatly concerned with housekeep- ing and Single Tax. However, I questioned papa that night as to the mystical term— only I pronounced it wrong somehow, for 1 know now that he imagined I meant aluminum. ' " It ' s a metal, " papa answered from behind The Literary Digest. " A what? " I asked, plaintively. " A metal, honey, " mamma explained, " like the pots in the kitchen— something you cook with, you know. ' Here my cousin, Isabel, who was spending the night with us. added, vaguely, that " it " was something that shines. " Al— al— alu— alum " —something that shines. Well, they shone all right that long line of ladies and one gentleman— shone with smiles and flowers and glowing eyes.

There was a young man named " Frank, " Who was so long and so lank That when a test came, He wrote down his name, And gave in a paper so blank. Come, every young lady of town, Give cause for your elaborate gown, Or else Brother Roy, Filled with wonderful joy, Will order you a step or two down. 0, my dear, poor Mickie O ' Quinn ! You are so excessively thin, I ' m afraid for your health — Fear you ' ll catch your death ; So pick up your speed and go in. There was a streak o ' luck called " Wright, " Who was so wonderfully bright, She packed up her books, Gave a laugh at her looks, And whispered to her friends : " Good night. " There goes a young man called " Sike, " To whom third-term girls do hike. Add " y " to his name; " Si key " we obtain — A fashion the Normal girls like. Izetta was called on one day To think of something to say. She thought and she thought, But nothing she caught; Then the honor was offered to Kay. There was a young lady in school Who never would think of a rule; She talked in her class. And seldom did pass ; So now she ' s been placed oil a stool. There was a dear, tittle, harmless boy, Pozier " by name, who was a great joy. Much love he did make; Many hearts did he break ; Yet in- always g ec med to be coy. There was a young lady called " May. ' Who was bo exceedingly gay She tilted her DOS ' Hung her dainty b And stumbled headlong n her way. There was a bright class in school. Wonderful workers by rule; " Third term " it was called; By all it was balled. But worked on with head that was cool. At recess Batelle went to Sam ' s; She bought some jellies and jams ; But when she came back, Mi - . Roy with great tact Closed the door before her with slams. One day in Lab., just for fun, Ruby and Clarence talked some. When, to their surprise. Mis- ( hrerbey ' s eyes Rack to their desk made them run. Our teacher in English is kind; Our faults she never doe- liml ; Rut when on a test she says, " ' l ' » your best. " You ' d better begin righl on time. The Punniesl teacher to me I- one that will never ayree. Hi- feel are like lead. His face is quite red ; Bui all of you know I,. A. D. siat- Weaver weighs one hundred pound-.

" Heloise (promptly) : " Uncube it. " First Latin Student: " Are you taking Csesar this term? " Second Latin Student : " No ; I ' ve only been exposed to it. " Third Termer: " Cheer up, dear fellow; we ' ll be all right soon. Mr. Williamson has just ordered twelve cans of manners to be distributed among the pupils in our History Class. " Mr. Monroe : " Well, Miss T , when did vou put your countenance back on this Hill? " Miss T (thinking he said " account " ) : " 0, I didn ' t put it back! I left it in the Homer National Bank. " " Miss Larguier, have you done the experiment with iron filings yet? " asked Mr. Fournet. Miss Larguier : " Yes. " Mr. Fournet : " What did they look like?

JparUamentar? £ w iDrill as TDescribe6 b? a TFr?sl)ie ;OME on, girls; the society bell is ringing! " cried a gay young voice ; and I, a very fresh little Freshie, went swinging along, too. Being so very fresh, I naturaUy had my eyes open to everything as we walked into the hall, and the sight which greeted them was more than pleasant for me. The colors of the society (purple and gold), the pretty decorations, and the crowd of laughing girls and boys created in me at the first a spirit of pride in E. L. S. After a little time spent in conversation, during which I was made known to some of the best workers — Erin Scaife, W. H. Burns, Annie Bains, Walter Brewer, W. S. Campbell, and a few others — we sat down, and the program began. As it progressed, I sat with both eyes and ears open, absorbing with undivided attention each number that was rendered. At length the time for parliamentary law drill came. Mr. Brewer then took the place of Mr. Burns, who was president, and asked : " What is the pleasure of the house? " Miss Annie Bains arose and said : " Mr. Chairman, we have so many new members that our hal 1 is hardly large enough to hold them ; so I move that we erect a $50,000 hall for our society. " I was amazed at such a motion, and yet not so surprised, after all ; for the members were so full of the spirit of the thing that I had become enthu- siastic, too, and was ready to believe or accept anything. The question was discussed pro and con, and finally, when voted upon, was passed. But the next motion was still more astounding. Mr. Campbell arose and said : " Mr. Chairman, I move that we send three delegates from the Eclectic Literary Society to the Panama Exposition. " Well, the E. L. S. was looming higher than ever on my horizon, and I con- gratulated myself again and again on having been allowed to join it. But wait; some one else is talking: " to amend the motion by striking out the words ' three delegates from ' and inserting the words ' all the members of, ' so that the motion will read that we send all the members of the E. L. S. to the Panama Exposition. " I could scarcely restrain myself. How did they know that that was the very thing that I had been longing to do ? Discussion followed as to the relative merits of doing it or not doing it. When the question was put, it was carried by a large majority. Then, indeed, did my spirits - ar. I thought of what a grand letter I was going to write home about our literary society. I was already planning my trip. How I would love it ! My dream was about to be realized! But my rhapsody was rudely interrupted by the next motion, which ■eni me Into the depths of despair. Some one was moving that each new member make a speech! Why. I could not begin to make a speech, much lees before this body of people who could do thutgo. In fear my tonpue cleaved to the roof of my mouth. ' Don ' t look so shocked. Knshie! M exclaimed the jrirl next to me. " That is only a parliamentary law drill. They are not poinjr to carry out any of those motions. " " ()! " I gasped; and I was so relieved to find that I did not have to make a speech that I cheerfully gave up my trip to the Exposition. But let me say. n passant, even if my wildest dreams have not been real- ized, I have ever found that Bclectic Literary Society to be a real, sure- enough fact. Gertrude Moore. I3l)e Z3ru Spirit of TE. 1. S. AR up on the Hill, where the buildings of the Normal loomed high, expressions of disappointment and grief were heard in every room of the dormitories. It was Saturday, and the rain was coming down in blinding d rops. Dark, threat- ening clouds hung in the sky, and rumbling thunder growled in the distance, while the wind whistled shrilly. Soon after rising bell the buildings were astir with girls moaning and wailing. There found its way over my transom a pitiful voice, which said : " I think it ' s a shame that it is raining. And on Saturday of all days! 1 wanted to go to town. " " O, me, what will I do all day? " another voice exclaimed. Still a third voice called out, " Somebody lend me a raincoat, " which was followed by other similar requests. At that moment the breakfast bell rang, and out rushed the crowd, perhaps a little more cheerful, caring naught for rain and cold when the prospect of eating was on hand. On the return from breakfast, as I ascended the steps of West Hall, the cheery-voiced Bobbie, a member of the Decorating Committee of E. L. S., called to me: " Get some of the new girls to come over with you and take a look in the E. L. S. room this morning. We want to get some new members this term. " " That ' s a fine idea, " I answered. " I shall ask all that I know to go over. It will give them a chance to learn more about the society than a mere visit will. " After performing the Saturday housekeeping duties, I started out with a little band of new Normalites, who were eager to know about the E. L. S. " My sister belonged, " stated one. " And my brother, " said another, as we made our way along the slippery pavement. " Well, I had an uncle, a cousin, and somebody else in E. L. S., too, " declared a third, stoutly. " And I ' m going to join because they did. " At length we reached the door, where we found Bobbie and some other E. L. S. mem- bers just finishing decorating. A complete transformation of the familiar classroom had taken place. The lights were turned on, and the purple-and-gold banner first caught the eyes of the " Freshies. " The silver cup and various other symbols of the organization were next noted. Numerous pennants were arranged around the walls, while the rugs placed about on the floor gave a homelike air. Several luxuriant ferns were well placed to fill up the vacant spaces. " O, " they all cried, " I didn ' t know it was like this. ' " surprised smiles breaking over their faces. " This is lovely.

" When my brother was — " but her sentence was cut short by the exclamations of delight. Bessie brought out the records, and the chattering crowd grasped them eagerly to see if they could find a familiar name. Amid the excitement I heard a voice say: " Well, even if I don ' t know anybody who used to belong, I ' m going to join the E. L. S., because it seems more like home than anything here. " " O, girls, let me tell you something on our President! " said " Rags, " when the search had ended. " Yesterday Mrs. McVoy asked Mr. Eubanks what Wyatt and Surrey did for English poetry. " " Why, Mrs. McVoy, " he answered, " they introduced — er — er — blank poetry into Eng- land. " Before we had time to laugh, we were startled to hear the lunch bell clanging; and Hobbie, loyal to our society, sprang into a chair and cried, " Fifteen rahs for E. L. S., the Freshies joining in if they are going to become members! " There immediately fol- lowed fifteen of the loudest rahs that girls are capable of making, reinforced by the voice of every Freshie. Then, with the happy hearts that those few hours in E. L. S. Hall had given us, we went to lunch, finding on going outside that the gloomy clouds, which we had so long before for- gotten, were drifting away and the sun was shedding bright rays of light over Normal Hl ' ' - M VBJOBIE Atki ns. yio Coasting — yio I ' ll. r.

For a little while we tarried In a hall so strangely new. Why were we thus brought together In a place as yet unknown? All our hopes now seemed to wither, As our thoughts began to roam. What see we in radiant glory? Tis a sight no longer new. Tis a banner! 0, the story That the wreath brings back to you ! And a band of workers present — Ah, such concord there is found That a task to each seems pleasant, And with zeal each member ' s crowned. How we followed every movement ' Long the path of fleeting years ; Saw such very great improvement That our hopes replaced our fears ; Saw the laurels, which were many, Won in every ardent strife — First in song and then in story, All along this path of life. Now the ways are not forgotten. They will always hallowed be, For such paths have oft been trodden By the loyal M. C. C. And so often trials be?et us That we find it hard to rise, Mounting upward, as befits us, " Through difficulties to the skies. " Can we not, Fairy Mother, Just one glimpse of future see? 0, ' tis brighter — yes, far better — Than the past of M. C. C! Though our ties with it seem severed, We will never cease to be Loyal — 0, yes, ever loyal — To our dear old M. C. C. Alice Knighton. Obe Clean Sweep 111. air at Normal Hill is charged with electricity on this Ma. 27, 1914, the evening for the annual contest between the societies. The Normal School Auditorium is Tilled with nervous, noisy peo- ple. On the rijrht, under decorations of yellow and white, are the S. A. K. ' s ; in the center, where purple and gold hold sway, are the E. L. S. ' s; and on the left, under green and gold, are the M. C. (Vs. On the sta re are members from every society who are to take part in the contests of the evening in orations, declamations, and choruses by girls ' and hoys ' quartets. One by one these representatives take the floor. The people under the colors seem to vie with each other in making noise. Yells, shouts, and screams rend the air, and pennants and banners wave over- head. The excitement grows with every minute. When the noise after the last performance has -omewhat subsided, a little important-looking gentleman comes to the stage. The room gets so quiet that the chirp of a cricket from the outside can be heard. Every one is holding his breath. Will he n vt speak? Hush! O, my, such a lengthy Bpeech! Announce the winner! " I take greal pleasure in presenting to Mr. .). H. Alford, orator for M. ( ' . ( ' .. this medal. " What happens? The bearers of the green and gold jump from their seats and yell as it " they are going back to a savage state. But listen to the next announcement : " The M. C. ( ' . is also victorious in the Boys ' Quartet. " Were ever four men so gloriously cheered as are Kmmons, Sylve-t. Sikes. and Baynes? There are others yet to come; so be quiet. " I now presenl this medal to Miss Lena Lopez for declamation for M.C. ( ' . " How much noise so small a crowd can make! The M. C. C. ' s yell as if they will raise the top oil ' the house, while the K. I.. S. ' s and S. A. K. ' s sit looking on with downcast eyes. Now for the last. Who can it be? The other societies sit up with fresh hope in their faces. •• M. c. c. has (lone to-night that which a society seldom does. 1 have announced three victories for her. I now announce her winner in the chorus. " (Sung by the Girls ' Quartet— Elizabeth Tally, Rowena del Hommer, Mil- dred Kelly, and Hattie Tally.) For a second after this announcement there is a silence. The S. A. K. and the E. L. S. know they have lost in everything, and the M. C. C. can- not realize what they have done. For a second they seem dazed. Won in everything! They wake! M. C. C. ' s Big Horn jumps from the floor to the stage, and others follow him. Each member is anxious to grasp the hands of M. C. C. ' s heroes and heroines. And such a noise! The shouts are deafening, growing till they can grow no more, pausing only to burst forth with greater volume than before. They seem to realize how badly the sister societies must feel, and wish they could be as happy ; but they cannot refrain from expressing their joy, and at eleven-thirty yells for M. C. C. are still swelling and falling with the breeze. The Next Morning We are surprised to see just outside of the M. C. C. room, suspended across the hall above our heads, green and gold crepe paper, from which are hanging M. C. C. pennants of all kinds, and in the center are two brooms tied together with an elaborate bow of green and gold. Above this, on a placard printed clearly and boldly, are the words : " A Clean Sweep.

' " Ol)£ Tlub i With apologies to Sir Roger cLe Coverley) i HE first of our society is a gentleman of Jackson Parish, our honored President. f r j by the name of Mr. Morris Shows. His opinions on all matters are very exalted in his estimation and in the estimation of those who go to him for fatherly ad- vice. He even advises the Faculty on certain matters. Sometimes he accuses his fair lady classmates of having mistaken ideas on all subjects, but he tries faithfully to raise them up in the way they should go. However, he has no enemies, for he does nothing with sourness or obstinacy; but he works through the kindness of his heart for the welfare of his fellow-men — and women! Next in esteem and authority among us is another bachelor, his friend, Mr. T. J. Grif- fin — a man of great intellect, responsibility, and understanding; a favorite among the members of the Faculty and the fair sex on the Hill. He is very attentive to his sister, looking after her happiness with more than the usual amount of brotherly care. His great knowledge of parliamentary law makes him a very important personage to those frightened members who have to appeal to his decision on matters of grave importance. Mr. J. B.

Saturday had arrived, and still no let- ter from home; so Mathilda — or " Tilly, " as the home folks and her dearest friends called her — had thrown herself across the bed and was indulging in a good cry, when she heard a gentle tap on the door. She longed to lie still and not answer; but, fearing that terrible being, the matron, she raised her head, dabbed at her eyes with a tear-drenched handkerchief, and said, weakly: " Come in. " The door opened, and in danced sunshiny little Mary Coleman, who was the only really true friend that Mathilda had found in the whole Normal. " Why, Tilly Jones, youv ' e been crying! " she exclaimed. " What ' s the matter? Don ' t you like the Normal? " " No, 1 don ' t: " and the sobs came again. " I Hate it. The girls are all prissy; the teachers are hateful; and no one cares anything about you. " " O, yes, they do, too! You dress quickly and come with me to Mortar Board Society to-night. I ' ll show you some girls that are not prissy, and some teachers that are not hateful. We have the grandest times you ever heard of. I ' ll wait for you, and you ' ll come with me, won ' t you, Tilly, dear? " Tilly, of course, consented to go. There was really nothing else to do when Mary pleaded like that. She dressed hastily, aided by Mary, who chattered incessantly about the glories of the grand old M. B. S. Tilly Jones went to Mortar Board Society to find that which other parts of the Normal lacked, and she was not disappointed. The program was good. Her attention was held by Leta ' s interesting story; she was charmed by Grace ' s perfect music, and amused by the parliamentary law drill. After the prcgram had ended, Miss Varnado made her comments and " scolded " in her own sweet way about disorder; and Tilly decided that there was at least one teacher at the Normal who was not hateful. But it was after all this that Tilly saw the hest part of M. B. S. and learned to love the society. When the President pronounced the words, " We now stand adjourned, " the members arose, laughed, and talked together, and then came one by one to be introduced to their timid little visitor. Perhaps Mary was partly the cause of all of this: but, nevertheless, Tilly , feeling the charm of the Mortar Board Society, applied for membership a few days later and joined. Mathilda is now an enthusiastic Mortar Board worker, and advises every " Freshie " to join the happy band. " O, why don ' t you join the Mortar Board Society! " she ex- claimed, joyfully, the other day. " We have the best times. And if you want a sure cure for homesickness, just try great, big doses of M. B. S. " Josephine O ' Quinn.

For a long time the need of an or- ganization which would do for the Latin Department what the French Circle and Contemporary Life Club were doing for then itive departments had been felt in the institution. Rut certain obstacles always d in the way. Final ' y. however, these were overcome; and in the Fall m, 191 i. Mr. Winstead, head of the Latin Department, at the in-ti- on of members of the student body, began a movement in favor of anization. The movement gained force, and a studenl committee was ■ ted to draw up a const it ut ion and by-laws, Early in November per- il anenl organization was effected under the name " Latin Club. " The members comprise students of the Latin Department and others admitted by Bpecial privilege. Membership is entirely voluntary, no one being compelled to belong and no credits being given for the work done. The purpose of the club is to supplement the work of the department: Mid in order to do this, the work is of the nature suggested by the chlb ' e motto. " Antiques thesaurus pet ere " — " To seek ancient treasun Meetings are held every Friday afternoon, at which programs ' nm- ing of papers, talks, translations, music, and stories — are rendered. A Latin paper. Vox Discipulorum, is published every three months under the auspices of the club, and tlie presentation of Latin plays in public from time to time is contemplated as a part of the work. The first of tl • " The Roman Wedding, " was given during the Spring Term. 1915. Last fall, shortly after its organization, a social was given by the dub, to which only the members, the Normal Faculty, and a few other gu were invited. All wore Roman togas, were served refreshments from a Roman table constructed especially for the purpose, and were entertained with Latin games and contests. The entertainment was thus social and educational at one and the same time. Thus far the Latin Cub. thanks to Mr. Winstead ' - unfailing lnt and untiring efforts, has been most successful, and promises to make it - Influence felt throughout the institution in the near future, it is still a babe in arms, with no wonderful past to which it may point with pride, but a brilliant future toward which it mav look with exultation.

W. Stopher, teacher of public-school music, a band was organized among the Normal boys on April 12, 1911. Instruments which belong to the town of Natchitoches were lent the school for the beginning by the City Council. Tl i - instrumenta are in good shape and of the very besi make The presenl membership is fifty- two. The following instruments are used: Ten cornets, sixteen wood in- struments, four saxophones, five alto-, one euphonium. -i trombones, four Lasses, one tenor, cymbals, and four drums. Twenty-five of the instru- ments belong to the boys who play them, and twenty-seven belong to the band. The band also owns a (vera! others thai are used by boys preparing to become band members. The value of the instruments now in the hand is approximately $2,800. The organization owns $160 worth of music, and handsome uniforms to the value of (650, paid for in part by concerts by the hand. Three rehearsals are held weekly. It is the intention of the management to secure a first-class instrument for each player as soon as possible. Since the organization, the hand has been self-supporting and self-governing. ESxce] I in actual rehearsal and during public appearances, the director is a member only. The only per- manent committee has charge of the band equipment. This committee rails for an Inspection Of all uniforms at the end of each term. During its organization the band has furnished music at the Natchitoches Parish Fair, several public town meetings, for nearly every athletic event given on Normal] Hill, for society contests, and twice played creditably at the State Fair at Shreveport. The hand has a rejM rtoire of Over a hundred marches, waltzes, and selections. It played the " Rigoletto Quartet, " bj Verdi, at the first anniversary concert on April 12, L912; gave excerpts from " Faust ' " creditably at the conceit on April L2, 1913; and gave a dif- ficult and classical program on April 24, 191 1. It has also done some etli- cient advertising while on various trips. These trips include Robeline, .Marthaville, (ampti, Alexandria. Shnveport. Boyce, Mansfield, Pelican. Sodus, Bayou Natchez. Montrose, Friendship, and Pineville.

Harvey, Director of the School of Music, is one of the principal features of Normal life and activities, and is doing splendid work along musical lines. The purpose of the society is to acquaint the students with the best music and choral literature ami to give them such training as wiM enable them, when they go into the state a teachers, to raise the musical stand- arda of the towns in which they live. At the beginning of the Fall Term the enrollment was one hundred, and during the Winter Course the membership was increased to one hundred and eighty-five, which shows that the interest in the work has been steadily growing. Th ■ organization is composed almost entirely of girls— a fact which nat- urally tends to limit the field of the work . ' one. However, when a Dumber requiring male voi lected tor Btudy, tin 1 members of the M • Club assist in the male parts. The society made its d6but for this year at the graduation exercises i the Fall Term. Binging " Lovelj Appear. " from " The Redemption, " bj Gounod. The soprano soloisl was Miss Elizabeth Taylor, a member of tie graduating class and a pupil in the School of Music. The following week the society appeared again on the oca-ion of the public recital of the students of the School of Music, when a " I.ul ' ahy. " 1 Brahms, and " I Would That My Love, " bj Mendelssohn, were effectivelj sung. Rehearsals have begun on choruses for the opera " Aida, " which tl • ciety expects to present at the commencement i xercises in May. The or- ganization will soon begin work on -elections from Tannhauser. which il will ne time near the end of the Spring Term.

His life had been a fruitful one, but it is true iii all controversies that the strong predominates over the weak. The team- which met to test their strength were e enl matched in physique, and both entered the game with greal enthusiasm. The Normal hoys were greatly encouraged by the applauses of both teach- - rs and the student body, who manifested ?rea1 interest in the game and gave their heart lest Bupporl to our team. There was much rejoicing ex- pressed at the close of the game in the afternoon, when the referee an- nounced the score — 26 to 22 — in favor of the Normal. The teams resumed their places on the court in the evening to play the final game, each determined that victory should be theirs. But the Nor- mal hoys, being inspired by the first victory, entered the last game with iter zeal to conquer the S. I.. I. [. ' 8. It was a hard-fought game throughout, and closed with still a greater victorj for 1.. s. N.. the -coir being 5 to 5 in favor of the Normal. The Normal boys had the feeling that Perry expressed in his immortal words: •• We have met the enemy, and they are ours. " Greal sympathy was shown to the bereaved by both the club and town hoys, who. arrayed in various types of oight dress, constituted the funeral procession, which began at the Boys ' Dormitory, led by the Normal Band and S. M. Shows. This parade continued through the Btreets for more than an hour, with sympathetic yells and mournful sounds, and marched around the square in which the mourners were bo Borrowfulrj lamenl their loss. And still greater grief was expressed when the resting place of the deceased was beheld in front of Levy ' s drug Btore. Tic unfortu- nates at first hesitated to attend the funeral, hut. realizing that the hour was at hand when they must witness the burial of their hasket-hall " goat, " they assembled with great solemnity, it was a pitiful Bighl to behold the Borrow expressed by the bereaved as they viewed the pale face of their dead " goat. " Bu1 the consoling word- Bpoken by Shows in the funeral ice expressed the glad tidings to the grief-stricken team that this was a short departure, for it was a matter of Bhorl time until they should paj their death penalty and Bhould meet their beloved on that angelic si where peace and happiness never ceas i and where goats have no horn- and never attempt to butt MORRIS BMMONS. .Mi ui ' in Si ia i SI . football II LEON KILLBN Captain and FnU ltiv | Kill, n played Mb lam pone of football for Normal on Thank in- last Mil work mat ■ Bttln to ;i splendid i m th.

Coussons from the very start played consistent ball, and continued to do so throughout the season. He played his star games against Lafayette and Shreveport, but on no occasion was he found wanting. He often stopped backs behind the line of scrimmage. His graduation in the summer will make a vacancy in the line-up not easily filled. T. B. EUBANKS Center Eubanks was greatly aided this year by the experience he gained last season. He met the requirements on offense in a marked de- gree, and on defense had the direct pass, which is characteristic of the open game, down to perfection. Eubanks will be greatly missed at his post at center next season. W. READHIMER Guard Readhimer is 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds. He has had no previous experience on the gridiron. Readhimer soon gained a work- ing knowledge of the game and developed into a first-class guard. As he graduates in the summer, he will be missed from the line-up next season. J. B. FOURNET Guard Fournet played high-school tall, but this was his first season as Normal veteran. In the early part of the season Fournet received an injury which he did not overcome until late in the season, but in the game against Lafayette he proved his ability as a gridironist. He is a man of bone and sinew, and has all the other characteristics of a veteran in the line. Great things are expected of him next sea- son. C. L. TYNES End " Chollie, " though a steady worker, never quite developed Varsity caliber. Men like Tynes sometimes do more for the development of a team than do some that have their places made without hard ef- fort on their part. Therefore we consider Tynes a very important man. I.

It is certainly true that Normal had one of the fastest teams of her football career. PSL The tie with Shreveport in the opening game and the defeat at Lafayette on ft s Hc ? Turkey Day were the only blots on the season ' s record. Every Normal sup- porter believes the result of the game with Lafayette would have been different had weather conditions been more favorable. The game was played in a driving rain, on a field covered with water and mud. Under such conditions it was impossible to play the open game in which Normal excelled, and two costly fumbles gave the game to the home team. Of the Normal players, Killen, Captain and full back; Youngblood, half back; Winbarg and Nelken, ends; and Coussons, tackle, played remarkable ball throughout the season.

Not one of last year ' s " five " was in school this season, and pros- Lu«?P pects for a representative team were far from bright. Yet Normal went through the season with only two defeats, defeating Lafayette two games and dividing the series with Louisiana College. Thus, in percentage of games won, Normal has had a successful season, and this in the face of heavy odds. But her greatest triumph lies not in this fact, but rather in the fact that at all times the team played the game according both to the spirit and letter of the rules. It is to their great credit that in every game played fewer fouls wre committed by them than by the opposing team. Beeson was the bright star of the games, being closely followed, however, by Killen, Roy, and Stafford.

STAFFORD Gimri] Entering late in the term, Stafford, with very little basket-ball experience, made a very valuable member of the Normal team. The speed which has made him dreaded by other schools on the track made him a good running guard. He is a fighter, but be guards cieanly as well as effectively. Later in the season be developed con- siderable accuracy in locating the basket. It is regretted that he will not be here next season. ROY THOMPSON Guard Thompson was handicapped in early and midseason by his lack of condition. He is a tower of strength, and is always in the game, and but for his illness would have made the regular guards hustle for their positions. Thompson will be here next season, and great things are expected of him. DALLAS SPRING Guard and Center " Dall " came from the Bogalusa High School, where he had played the game to some extent. He is fast, a good floor worker, and good at long shots for the goal. His height made it practically impossi- ble for him to make a regular at center: but he played that position. as well as guard, in a creditable manner. It is hoped that he will be in school next season, as he is sure to make a valuable man. MATT 11C ATT Forward " Matt " deserves much credit for his work in basket ball this sea- son. As he was lacking in experience and size, there was little hope of his making the team. Yet be was always on the job. doing his best to help develop a team. He will bear watching next season. It is a pity that there are not more " Matts " in the Normal. ir3.ZA.

On Thanksgiving Day the scries ended, leaving Mortar Board sole pos- or of the field, with a splendid showing of ' Varsity material. immediately after this our ' Varsity was chosen, and regular work began. On December L2 the State High School champions! from Afansura, ar- rived to give battle. Owing to their years of experience and to our mis- fortune in losing our star goal before the game, they easily took the first tie from us. But the Saturday fight told a different tale. Thoroughly aroused to the disgrace a second defeat must bring, and grim with tin termination to wrest a victory from the grip of failure through b! Dgth of will, our girls held down their adversaries and slowly piled up ire, winning in the end by three points, made in the last forty-five onda of play. After thus redeeming themselves, our girls continued faithful practice. The team work that had won the Mansura game developed thoroughly, and Laura Prejean worked up a splendid series f characteristic goal plays. During the last weeks in January the Alexandria High School team vis- ited our campus, and the ' Varsity easily won two games, scoring heavily and playing in excellent form. The last game Of this Beril -. and of the year, took place on the Alexandria court, where, in pito of a few Blight accident s, the victory easily fell to our superior players, leaving us high hopes for next year ' s show. pq PQ 14 Ifi b School Athletics HERE ia no athletic association in the 1 1 ij li School, i ut some of the boys formed a basket-ball team, which has been the besl in the his- tory of the school.

The original Glee Club was composed of sixteen girls from s the eighth and ninth grades. Thanks to the training of Mr. Sto- pher, the Glee Club has been very successful and has appeared in public several times. It is entering a quartet and a chorus for the rally in the spring. The quartet is composed of Edna Dey, June Cooley, Mary Helm, and Lucile Landry. At present the membership of the Glee Club is eight- een. Great interest is taken in it, as is shown by the good attendance and good results attained. The members of the Glee Club are as follows : Mamie Bowman, June Cooley, Cleo Dupree, Lessie Frey, Ouida Flanner, Gertrude Frederick, Pearl Gibbs, Elizabeth Groesbeck, Honorine Galy, Mary Helm, Mabel Haw- kins, Pearl Kaffie, Lucile Landry, Blossom Meyers, Eva May Peace, Ethel Robinson, Cleo Williams, and Dessie Weaver. The Glee Club, as a whole, thanks Miss Tally and Mr. Stopher for their assistance and the interest which they have taken in the work.

Are you going forth the same individual you were when you came, unchanged, uninfluenced by the sur- roundings which have been a pari of your life for eighteen months and more? Has nothing been added to your life but years? Ask yourselves these questions. Reflect a moment on what these mouths have broughl to you. Probe deeply into your inmost soul to find an answer not thai there is a single possibility of changing matters at this late Btage should you find that you musi answer negatively, but that you may truly realize the great power for good this school has been in your life and that you may rightly ireciate the wonderful opportunities that have been showered upon you. Is it possible thai you could have left the auditorium the night .lames ott -poke on •• Sour Grapes " without the realization of the greal problem and crisis the world is facing and of the immeasurable good you could do ,!i indvidual, a citizen, a teacher? Can you not read our contemporary writers and understand our great men of to-day better because f the glimpse into their lives that John Kendrick Bangs gave you when he -poke on " Salubrities 1 Have Met? " Could you -it and listen unmoved to the melodious -trains that (lowed from the magical how of Madame Maud Powell, the greatest American violinist? Did it not leave you a better man. a better woman? Were jrou not thrilled to ecstasy when Montani lightly touched the strings of his golden harp and you heard the light, vivacious tone- of " •Santa I.ucia " or the deep, rich chord- of ' " A Merry Life; ' when Vera Poppi drew her how across the strings of her ' ce ' lo and from it came rich, rare melodies? What did Mr-. Baker ' s interpretation and n dition of ■•Chanticleer " leave with you? What did those production- of our own studenl body, " The Rose Maiden " and " Martha. " mean to you? Would you take anything for the hours of genuine aesthetic pleasure thej furnished you? What ha- been the value of your society work to you? hid you feel that there was nothing to gain from such work but the ti credits for graduation? Or are you leaving it better able to face a en and express yourself before it ' . ' Has it helped you to solve and master the intricacies of parliamentary law? Have you failed to gain anything cially from it? Has the Normal meant nothing to you religiously? Have not the time- when, a- one, eight hundred how their heads to repeat tie Lord ' - Prayer, the devotional exercises, the religious organizations, a- tin Y. M. C. A.. Y. W. C A..

I- there any one here who dan - to say that magnificent triumph of rhetoric, and oratory revealing the depth and power of the divine love, which Rev. P.arr gave a- his mes • the graduates and to the whole student body, gave nothing to his soul? Mo nol those glo- rious words of promise still ring in your ears : " Thou wilt keep him in per- fect peace whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee? " And if all this has influenced you but little, dare you say that the native loveliness and beauty of your surroundings all these months has not entered your soul and made it rejoice in the goodness and love of the Father? There is a beautiful legend called " In the Desert of Waiting, " from which is taken this crystallized thought: " Patience! thou comest into the desert a vender of salt ; thou mayest go forth an alchemist distilling from life ' s tasks and sorrows such precious attar into thy soul that its sweetness shall win for thee a welcome wherever thou goest and a royal welcome into the City of Thy Desire. " We have all come into the desert venders of salt, but have we all been able to distill from the daily tasks and trials that pricked us sorest precious attar to sweeten all life and to give us a royal en- trance into the City of Our Desire? If we only could realize that " from the commonest experiences of life may be distilled the greatest blessings! " Reflect on this a while and see if, when you are bidding farewell forever to this school, you may turn your face toward it and say softly to your Alma Mater : " Still so gently o ' er me stealing, Mem ' ry will bring back the feeling, Spite of all my grief revealing, That I love thee — that I dearly love thee still.

" It had begun to grow dark, and the little boy, much to Uncle Henry ' s gratification, protested against returning to the cottage alone. Uncle Henry took him home. Two hours later the little son of our President lay fast asleep in his little bed, dreaming of the hump-backed cats and the jack- o ' -lanterns hanging on the wall of old Boyd Hall. Wilma Dupuy.

" like that of a solitary bass-horn player leading a march for an imaginary band; the electric light winks at me once at its usual time and then goes on as steady as before; some lonely, foot-sore tramp limps along the walk, stops, pulls at the gate, and halloos to know if there are any bad dogs; the train whistles four long blasts, and, with the clank of the bell keeping time with the exhaust, goes down the narrow track; occasional ejaculations come from my roommate as signals for me to pull him out of the bog of quadratics of simultaneous equations. 1 am not so lonesome as some may think. 1 do not find the place half so lonely as the girls of the club find their rooms. I am not the only one within the limits of this house, which I call my home, because I have paid fifteen dollars for my part of it. There are two girls here. They live by day at the building on the Hill and by night in their homes of one room. One does not need a large mansion to live in, just as one does not need a large body to live in. Does not Mr. Claman feel just as comfortable in his little body as Mr. Harvey does in his big one? One room is quite sufficient. They live downstairs, and this faint humming sounds like the dismal sounds of the wolf calling on all the gods to restore his dead mate to him. Maybe it might be compared to the soft strains of the phonograph playing a lullaby with an old, worn-out needle. I listen, and find that I ' m mistaken. A new gust of notes has been wafted to me, and they are those of a ' cello played by an infidel hand — a hand which has no respect for a ' cello. The poor ' cello — how I wish it were like us and could make its own sounds! And then we would not be troubled with poor music and nerve-destroying cords from it, at least. Now that all are in their rooms, some studying, some writing, others nodding in their chairs, too lazy to go to bed, I am more with the world than ever. My only annoyance now until bedtime will be the desultory and scattered questions from my roommate, ask- ing how to factor binomials, or to extract the square root, or a hundred other things. But this soon quiets down, and no more is heard from him. On the whole, my medita- tions may be continued without much danger of being broken by these interruptions. Sometimes, when I listen at the right time, 1 hear the Normal bells — the supper hell, the study bell, or even the light bell. They seem to give out a sound which is softened into a melody by its passage and reflections. The sound is strained of its discordant overtones by its long passage through the pine trees and over the housetops. This sweet music changes to the queer gurgling sound of some one snoring across the halls. It is like the rasp of the rope against the well curb as the bucket descends into the water. Thus the silence of the night is broken until the rising sun disperses the morning mist and the rattle of the early train wakes the sleeper. But there is that never-ceasing " chug-chug " of the watch with the red devil on its face looking up to me. Maybe it is he that bellows out this jolly sound as the second hand tickles him under the chin and the hour hand makes the yellow, holy halo about his head. Graham STUCKEY.

Ol)£ ftrittk (Class Exercise) AY was slowly breaking, and Mrs. Stanley was almost crazed with fear. Kath- ryn, who had driven with a party of young people to a play in a neighboring town, should have returned about two o ' clock; but hour after hour had passed, and still she had not appeared. Perplexed, but with his usual composure, Dr. Stanley tried in vain to console his wife, who paced the floor and wrung her hands in great agitation. " My dear, she has probably remained to spend the night with some of her friends, " he insisted, again and again. " No, George, I know she didn ' t! " Mrs. Stanley cried, in despair. " Aline is away on a visit, and Martha ' s mother is very ill. O, if she would only, only come! " The last sentence, ending in a plaintive wail, seemed to bring an answer; for wheels were heard on the gravel outside, and some one ran quickly up the steps. Kathryn en- tered the room and threw her arms about her sobbing mother. " O, mother, how glad I am to be home again! We have had a terrible time! " she ex- claimed. " Darling, what in the world has kept you? " Mrs. Stanley trembled with emotion. " Sit right down here and dry your tears, and I will tell you and daddy about it, " said Kathryn, excitedly. " You may remember that Allan said he knew a shorter route. Well, the play was over at eleven, and, after we had supper, we started home; but Allan sug- gested that we try the shorter road, so we started off with our buggy in the lead. Daddy, you know the road that turns off the main road at Cuthbert ' s? " " Why, daughter, that road leads to Jonesville! " her fathered answered, in surprise. " Yes; but, daddy, we soon took a road that led into the woods. It was as dark as pitch, but Allan insisted that he knew where he was going. We drove on and on for about an hour and a half, and Allan said that we ought to reach soon the lane that leads into the Oak Grove Road. " " Allan should have known better than to lead all of you into such a wild-goose chase, " Dr. Stanley interrupted, with a grim smile. " Now, daddy, you mustn ' t blame Allan. It wasn ' t really his fault, " defended Kathryn, valiantly. " Go on, daughter. Tell us the rest, " Mrs. Stanley begged. " All right, mother. We drove on and on, and Allan was just about to own up that he was lost, when our horse suddenly reared up on his hind legs and refused to go. The boys stopped their horses and ran to hold our horse. They struck a light, and — O, mother! " Kathryn hid her face in her hands, overcome with the terror of the thought. " Darling, tell me what it was! " cried her mother, trembling with excitement. Kathryn lifted her head and continued: " There, five or six feet in front of us, was a great bluff of the Black River! " Mrs. Stanley screamed and burst into tears. " Well, mother, darling, don ' t cry. Why, it is all over now. " " George, I knew that our girl was in danger. I told you that she was; " and Mrs. Stan- ley wept heartbrokenly. " Well, daughter, tell us how you finally found your way home again, " Dr. Stanley said. " We were completely lost, and we wandered slowly about the woods for two hours be- fore we found our road. Then we reached the main road about four miles on the other side of Jonesville; and, of course, after that we had no more trouble. " " It was, indeed, a narrow escape. We should all be very, very thankful that you art safe at home again. " Dr. Stanley spoke deliberately and with great feeling. " We certainly should. And, daddy, " Kathryn hesitated, and then continued, " you wont be angry with Allan, will you? He is dreadfully worried and depressed. ' He is coming to see you and mother to-morrow and present the apologies that he says are due. " " My dear, this is no time to entertain feelings of anger or resentment, " her father replied; and he smiled, but not grimly this time, and kissed the pleading, upturned face. ROSE Taylor.

Tbb)z Tegeno of rart6 Ccorc In the pleasant, sunny Southland, Where the sun is ever shining, Is a bluff built by our Mother, By our wondrous Mother Nature. Here below ' s the winding river. Rushing onward, onward, onward — Rushing with a wondrous music To the mighty Mississippi, There to mix its bright, red waters With the mighty Mississippi, Y it h the Father of all waters. Then above and reaching upward, Ever high above the river, Is the playhouse of our Mother That she used her arts in making. And the pine trees and the oak trees Rear their heads up to the Father, Gitchie Manito, the Mighty — He, the Father of the people. All the colors of the rainbow Blend together in the woodland, In the pleasant, sunny woodland. And the sky that bends above it. Bends as does the bow of Hunter, Smiles down on the pleasant woodland, On the woodland and the river, And the stream reflects his smiling. Gladness lives there in the woodland. There upon the bluff, so high up, Is the village of the people: There the wigwams of the people, Of the noble, red-skinned people. And the women and the children Work around and in the wigwams, While the warriors, the great warriors, Smoke the pipe of peace together. Here we see a lovely maiden, See a lovely, red-skinned maiden, Ling ' ring near the band of warriors. And all the eyes are turned upon her, Follow lovely Minnelayee, See the child of Chief Galaryee — She, the sunlight of her people. And a warrior bold and stalwart Loves the Princess Minnelayee — He, the son of noted Gehu, Of Gehu, the honored racer, Loves the maiden Minnelayee. Loves she not this mighty warrior, But turns always to her people, To her father and her mother, And ' s content with them to love her. Down the lovely, winding river Comes a great canoe a-splashinu. Rising, falling on the wavelets. Coming nearer, nearer, nearer. In the great canoe the white men Come on to the pleasant woodland, Come to greet Galaryee friendly, Trade with him their wares and trinkets. Ere they go back up the river. In the white man ' s band ' s a warrior — He, the fair-skinned Don Lovito; He, the handsome, pale-faced warrior, Catches sight of Minnelayee, While he lingers with her people, And he sees in the fair redskin All the graces of a princess, All the freedom of the forest, All the beauty of a flower. And the princess, Minnelayee, Sees the Spaniard, Don Lovito: And at first his graceful bearing Draws attention to his person. Then his handsome, haughty features Cause the girl to watch him closely. Then a friendship grows between them : And when handsome Don Lovito Smiles on little Minnelayee, She feels all the joy of springtime, For his smile is like the sunshine. Friendship then to something deeper Grows, and handsome Don Lovito Steals the heart of Minnelayee, Till she loves the handsome Spaniard. Loves the dashing Don Lovito. But at last there comes a parting, And the handsome Don Lovito Tells the artless Indian princess Of his wondrous home and home land: Tells her he will take her with him As his wife — he ' ll take her with him Back to Spain, his wondrous home land; Says that she must wait there for him Till he comes back up the river. Then he kisses Minnelayee, Bids farewell to her who loves him — Minnelayee, lovely red skin. Then the great boats of the white men Sail away, and Don Lovito Stands and waves at Minnelayee, Wafts a kiss across the waters To the child of Chief Galar; And the Princess Minnelayee Stands and waves at Don Lovito.

" Big John Day, " as the fellows called him, was on his way to the train yards, where the great, puffing, and shining No. 99 was waiting for him. His heart filled with pride as he examined the massive engine, and he called gayly to the brakeman: " She ' s a wonder all right; you believe that, don ' t you, Bill? " Bill nodded wisely. Of course he believed anything that " Big John Day " said. No. 99 left the yards at nine. At nine-five she arrived at the station, where, in a few minutes, crowds of people boarded her, some glancing at the big monster with admira- tion; and these persons, let it be said, never failed to arouse Day ' s silent approval. At last a lantern swung glistening in the rain, and a gruff voice called, " All aboard! " and No. 99 angrily and slowly moved out into the darkness. One hundred miles from the station the night grew darker, but rain poured in tor- rents, and heaven itself seemed to be rent by flaming lightning and pealing thunder. But through the black storm No. 99 sped on, fearlessly, boldly. Of a sudden her speed accel- erated, and Day glanced quickly toward the window by his side. Did he see the demons of the dark smiling at him? At his feet were the brakes. The engineer ' s steel-gray eyes fastened themselves on them in a strange fear, and he saw that they were slowly moving. With a cry, he bent his powerful body and clutched the brakes. A click, and that was all! The big fellow glanced at his watch. In half an hour No. 44 would be waiting at the switch at Tooke ' s Crossing to let his train pass. If he reached there before ten fifty five! His face whitened, and the muscles of his body tightened in a maddening dread. He was young, so young; and, by a sudden impulse, he thrust wide the window and crouched in the opening. The lightning showed him a meadow. One jump, and he was safe. And life was beckoning, coaxing him. There was only one chance in a thousand that he could save his passengers by remaining. Should he take this chance, to the dan- ger of his own life? No. 99 lurched forward, causing Day to clinch the sash to save himself from falling on the ground beneath him. White and trembling, he struggled. The wind moaned, " Come, come! " the raindrops that fell upon his tense face whispered, " How young you are! " and the thunder growled, " Save yourself at any cost! " " I will, I will. " But then a mother touched his shoulder, " I am going to my child; " and her voice was low and gentle. " My sweetheart is waiting for me. " The lad spoke dreamily, as he clasped the engi- neer ' s hand. " My granddaughter is dying. " And the tired, kind eyes of an old gentleman sought Day ' s in tender appeal. With a groan, " Big John Day " leaned forward and gripped the brakes.

He walked slowly past her, poked the note toward her, looking in an entirely opposite direction and trying to whis- tle away his embarrassment. As soon as the note was safe in Polly ' s hands, he took to his heels and ran for dear life, soon reaching the shelter of his own back yard. From that time he was in a state of silent, hopeful ecstasy. He did his evening chores, ate his supper silently, but spasmodically, and went to bed, but not soon to sleep. He awoke early next morning, took his Sunday-morning bath with an air of resignation opposed to his usual remonstrance. Mrs. Carroll was astonished. She asked Jimmy if he felt well, and he said, " Yes ' m, " a little doubtfully. He did not study his lesson, since that was not an element of his idea of Sunday school. He left home unusually early, with his hair unusually smooth and his hands unusually clean. When he entered the church, he saw Polly. She was sitting with her mother among the older ladies. Polly saw him, too, and looked kindly upon him, and his hopes ran high. He looked disdainfully at Steve, who sat on the seat behind him and pretended not to know Jimmy was there. When it was time for class, both boys walked primly faster and faster to their places, each watching his rival through the corner of his eye. When they were near the coveted place, Steve gave a bound tow r ard it and sat down noisily. That was a breach of etiquette, and Miss Sallie, the Sunday-school teacher, asked him to move, and assigned him a seat near the end of the row, far away from Polly ' s usual seat. The anxious Jimmy marched forward, took the seat like a gentleman, and kept it. And when Polly came in, she took her seat by him, showed him a piece of paper, which he recognized to be his note, partially wrapped in her handkerchief, smiled at him, and he was at peace with all the world. Elizabeth Smith. Spring Merry spring returns once more, Chasing away cold winter hoar, Chasing away the frost and snow, Winter ' s signals of chill and woe; All the winter ' s dreary sadness Flees away before spring ' s gladness. Spring is coming, swift and lleet; Baby buds peep at one ' s feet, Peeping up with many a fear, Lest old winter still be here Blossoms scattered everywhere; Birds ' sweet songs are in the air; Joyful things with song or name Spring ' s glad coming now proclaim.

Unconsciously, I stopped in the midst of it and looked aboul me. The house in front of which I was staiulinv mosl dilapidated in appearance There was a small fence around it. and the gate was hanging on one hinge in a very dejected manner. 1 went up to the door and knocked. An old woman appeared, and. after eyeing me suspiciously, asked me to come in. Her face was weather-beaten and wretched-looking, like everything aboul the place. The room in which I found myself was very small and ill-lighted, and. together with the old woman, formed a picture of utmost misery. Filth, the handmaid of pov- i rty, was visible everywhere. The smoke from a greasy stove made the room stuffy and oppressive. The woman ungraciously motioned me to he seated ami waited silently for me to begin. The words of comfort and cheer that I had half formed in my mind seemed paltry and inadequate, n fomish. I found myself speechless before this cold and unapproa able woman, hardened and embittered by the blows of life. I had stepped completely out of my world into a world of which I knew nothing— a world of hope , essness and despair. I felt, even in my inexpi rience, that 1 could not leach this woman. I groped frantically for something to say. Suddenly ;i wild idea sprang into my head. Desperate, I clutched at it. As an i cuse for my presence, 1 stammered something about being in the wn house and awkwardly retreated. 1 was living at this time with my Bister, who was married. When 1 reached home. 1 was depressed. I felt angrj at the whole world for allow- ing such misery to exist. I opened the door, and then paused; for the con trast of this Bcene with tin one i had just left was so striking that I -too. I for a few momenta unobserved, watching the little group before me. The loom into which I had stepped did not give the impression of luxury, hut of entire comfort, and was pervaded by the spirit of a true home. M sis- ter, with her mending in her lap. was seated by the table. Two of the children were lying in front of the lire, listening intently to the -ton of Sara Crew that their elder sister was reading aloud. Presently the child looked up |iie tioninj. r ly from the hook and said: " Mamma, are there | pie in the world a- -ad and poor a- that ' . ' " I shivered at the recollection of the -ceiio I had just left. At this moment the children caught sij ht of me. and. pulling me into a chair, demanded at the same time if I did not want to hear aboul the little girl that was unhappy.

The dashing prince and his merry companion-, resting in this woodland dell, added a vivid dash of color to this already beautiful scene. ' .-i op Characters Princess Ida . WUlu ■ Lad] Psyche ....

" The play was voted a grand success by every one. Miss Steletta Westrope made a most dignified Duke, and Miss Dun- woodie Burges was a captivating Duchess. Miss Vivian Keller, as Hermia, and Miss Lizzie Taylor, as Helena, were both charming maiden?. Miss Ethel Merrill and Miss Ruby Wilcox were the most ardent of lovers. Cecil McClung, as Nick Bottom, kept the audience in roars of laughter. Miss Eddie Teddlie, as Puck, made a most charming and frisky little imp with her mischievous pranks. In fact, the entire cast showed great dramatic ability.

" Pygmalion and Galatea. " The stage, which the class had arranged for this grea1 and Ias1 occasion, represented an Athenian studio — that part of his home which Pygmalion, the sculptor, loved best. In the center, and a little to the bade of the room. was an inclosed partition, which hid a famous statue. Galatea, to winch Pygmalion ' s fame was attributed. Mi- Kate Gosling, as Pygmalion, and Miss Thelma Hewes, a- the sculp- tor ' s wife, played their part with such zeal and excellency that had an Athenian been in the midst he would have been indeed proud of the repre- sentatives of ' rreece. Through the power of the gods, Pygmalion ' s beautiful Galatea was brought to life one day. and the difficulties in which she became involved through her sweet innocence of life ' s ways excited the audience to greal in- terest and amusement. No other than Miss Allene Alexander could have played this role as delightfully. Graceful and beautiful, she was always welcomed when she appeared. The audience was much interested in Mi-- Nanc Long, who. as Chr was equally as interested in Galatea, much to the despair and vexation, however, of his lovely wife. Daphne (Miss Lurline Dupuy). If there is anything that adds charm to a -ton . it is " true love that never runs smooth. " and which, in this play, caused many amusing quarrels i tween Lencippe (Mi-- Arnaudlia Snoddy) ami his spirited little sweet- heart. Myrine (Mi-- Wilms Dupuy). Miss bfayble Gauthier, a- Agesi- mos, and Mis- Annie Mae 1 ' ittit. a- Mino-. both played the role of -la and their presence portrayed the manner of service of this ancient countrj of ( rreece.

A loman We66iR9 " 5 N April the Latin Club presented its annual Latin play, " A Roman Wedding, " which was received enthusiastically by the audience. Ever since the first play given in the Latin tongue by members of the department in the fall of 1913, the students have been enthusiastic over the idea of Latin ' s " stunts. " Last fall they had a Latin party in the Gym- nasium, at which all wore togas and other Roman accouterments, had Latin music, greeted each other in Latin salutations, and feasted reclining on a Roman table. This spring they decided to give " A Roman Wedding. " Everything was faithful to the Roman ideas, both language and costumes.

It was not until several days later that the Natural Science and English teachers were forced to join in the laugh. The joke was the beginning of a friendship. The " ardent admirer " really sent flowers decidedly more often than once a year, and on December 14, 1914, the E. T. and N. S.

J and might prepare ourselves for the hardships of life, agreed to organize into a C ? club of some kind. We met one night in the boiler room and proceeded to christen ourselves " The Jesse James Gang " and to draw up laws to govern the gang. We elected L. O. Jeansonne, president; Burton D. Weaver, secretary and treasurer. One of the governing regulations adopted was that the m aximum membership should be seven and the minimum three. In a short time, the other boys of the club, seeing that the Jesses were running affairs, deemed it proper to organize themselves for self-preservation. So a few of them organ- ized a band which they called " The Buffalo Bill Gang. " One night, while all the members of the Jesse James gang were " boning " hard on geometry, physics, methods, etc., there was heard a gentle, but imperative, rapping on the vice president ' s door. In answer to his " Come in! " there stepped into the room the president of the Buffalo Bills. With a sullen look and a menacing voice, he said: " I ' ve come to warn you fellows. " But even before he had spoken, the vice president gave the distress cry; and, as he ceased speaking, in stepped the seven Jesse Jameses. In an in- stant the Buffalo Bill was caught and tied, to be held until 9:30, the hour named for the execution. But just as the watch was ticking away the last seconds of the fatal hour, there bore down upon the Jesses a bloodthirsty band; for the cunning prisoner had se- cretly notified his colleagues, who also numbered seven, and they had come to wreak vengeance. Man for man the fight began, and was waged on the lied, on the floor, under the bed, over the tables, and with much bloodshed on both sides for about thirty minutes, when suddenly a Bill cried: " Jesse James, we surrender! You get our goat! " So the fight ended in victory for the Jesse James gang. With the great power and prestige added to our gang by this victory, we, realizing an urgent need for more officers, elected the following: L. P. Ayo, corresponding secretary, Charlie Coussons, chief adviser; and M. F. Plauche, advisor lieutenant. To this day our power is unbroken; and though the Buffalo Bills occasionally arise in all their arrogance, they are always quickly subdued; and with " Woe unto him who crosses our path! " for our motto, the Jesse James gang reigns supreme in The Shack. Jean son ni:. Iftow tl)e Buffalo 3MU (ban§ (Tame into eing NE night, shortly after their union in bonds of gangship, as the Jesse Jameses were deliberating at a regular meeting in the furnace room — otherwise known as the " smoking parlor " — Cancienne, a daredevil sort of a fellow, knowing of it, grasped the opportunity to have a little fun. He would delude the gang into believing there was another sure-enough gang outside, and thereby make things interesting. He closed the door, locked it, and then began pitching coal through the lit- tle opening in the outside wall. In less than a minute all of the Jesses were crawling on the boiler, yelling for help. Not satisfied with this, the desperado procured a hos pipe and kept a stream on them until they swore they had a good shower bath. So far, so good. The door was unlocked, and the gang disbursed, the boys going to their re- spective rooms. By this time the great peacemaker, Shows, hearing of the night ' s esca- pade, notified Cancienne that he must play with the hose no more. Cancienne, thinking the Jesse Jameses might get revenge on him by using this same hose pipe, went up to tell Jesse of the decree. Jesse saw his chance to " get even. " lie signaled his band to come forth and rejoice in sweet revenge. Cancienne, realizing his danger, quickly sent messages to four of his friends. They completely vanquished the Jesse James gang, and thereupon banded themselves into a gang dignified by the name of " Buffalo Hills. " Cittlc Cau 3b 5low anb Ob n.

No sooner -aid than done. And borrowing was immediately in order for th occasion. Ev irything available was put to use. After much confusion, all was ready. The bride appeared in beautifully embroidered lingerie. II» r only adorn- inent was a long string of immense pearls, which great ' y enhanced her beauty. The simplicity of her attire served to bring out her numen persona] charms. She wore a veil, which was exquisitely painted in lilies of the valley. Her bouquel was contrived of ti sue paper, ribbons, maline, and artificial flowers. It was a clever piece of work, for to the casual l 1 - server they could easilj have passed for orange blossoms, carnations, or whatever he chose to think they were. The groom on this momentous occasion wore full evening dr as. To tell the truth, it was a would-be full evening dress. Their ingenuity pro inexhaustible, for they had fashioned a frock-tail coat oul of a cutaway . Btylish about five years ago. Long bloomers pulled down to their " utmosl " senel for trous And they served well. I ' ll tell you. Con- trary to custom, this groom had long hair. This would never do: so it irj for him to wear a cap. Being afraid that this cap would de- tract from his dignity, he used a burnt cork and produced a mustache, which added greatly to his distinguished appearance. The other in. nih srs of the bridal party wt re arrayed in equally as charm- ing a manner. I will not go into further bul hasten on with Iding.

We can sit up late at night-time; we can stay in bed quite late; And we ' ll have no books to study. " Say, now, won ' t that just be great? " And we ' ll do just as we want to — go to pictures with the boys — And, though that ' s the one 1 said last, won ' t be least among our joys. Josephine O ' Quinn.

Glancing over the title, Poret saw, written in large golden letters: " Darwin ' s Theory of Evolution.

Adieu, and luek to th JUDITH C UtVER. " pseu6o- Orated? AWOKE — not with a quick clearing of the brain in which one grasps the situation, knows it is Monday, and is ready for action, but by slow degrees. First, I felt a vague, annoying uncomfortableness — a feeling of being too hot. Then I heard a roaring, which was my fire, but which seemed to be one of the various noises made by my dream— " B " Class. What finally roused me was the customary call from the cook, and that call was calculated to dispel dreams as well as to make one spring up startled. Somehow, one ' s name will always penetrate the brain, even in deep Sunday- night, Monday-morning sleep. When I did open my eyes, I needed no one to inform me that it was late. That con- dition, when it exists, is felt just as soon as any other element of environment. I me- chanically left my warm bed and chattered over to the fire. A furtive glance at the clock told me the depressing truth that there were but five minutes in which to be off to school. I felt no surprise, no disappointment. This was far too common a state of affairs to me. I accepted it as it was, and set my teeth for the struggle, for Time and I had to fight it out. Dressing with me is a science, if it isn ' t an art. I was soon, incredibly soon, all dressed, except (and at this point my heart sank) the hair-combing. Now, this was my first day as a Ninth-Termer — a teacher! — and we were to teach on this first day of the term. My problem was a new one. How could 1 fix my hair in the accepted teacher-way in only one minute? True, I had practiced long and earnestly for days; but it was a long process and nine times out of ten a failure, resulting in a queer, untidy roll. I thought a moment. This was no time for hesitation. I recklessly gath- ered my little pile of hair, swung it up in the old way, and tied a piece of ribbon around it! My cheeks burned painfully. This question of ribbon was one which had been ex- tensively and tirelessly discussed among my newly-dignified classmates. We firmly be- lieved that any one attempting to teach under such circumstances was a sure failure. Then the aivful humiliation of having a critic teacher look you over and see that you weren t ready for your work! It was a choice between two great evils — being late for my first critique or wearing the obnoxious ribbon! In my judgment, I had taken, if not the least, at any rate the most definite, evil. I snatched my books and made for the door. I brought up images of every teacher 1 had seen with ribbon on at any time. " There ' s Miss Dancy, and Miss Sheen sometimes; but they — " Here my reasoning was interrupted by a call, which I recognized as my mother ' s voice: " Mary, it ' s pouring down rain. Be sure to wear your rubbers and take your umbrella. Child, what do you mean by tramping out in that wet without your things on? " This rain was all I needed to complete my utter dejection. Why, of all mornings, should Nature choose to weep to-day? I feebly argued to my mother the newness of my shoes and uselessness of rubbers; but it was in vain, and I knew it. Even as I spoke I flopped beside the shoe-box and began drawing forth rubbers. Halfway through the box I pulled out one of mine, and then with dogged perseverance I succeeded in finding the other one behind a trunk. Aunt Dinah, the cook, with more words and bustling than could ever be necessary, found my raincoat and an umbrella; and, struggling with the ' I " r.

And then the contest was to see Which one co uld first get dressed ; But too much haste at work, you see, Our progress did arrest. For while we peacefully had slept, With dreams of lessons p ' anned, A nymph had to our campus crept — It changed to fairyland. The day before the grass was brown ; This morn ' twas glistening white. The trees with sparkling snow bowed down Were made so in a night. And when at last the campus gained, A merry crowd we played ; From every side the snowballs rained. We would have longer stayed ; But just as battle hottest raged, And victory was in view, The bell! " (by which school life is gauged) — And we to breakfast flew. And then to school we made our way, With minds ill fit to learn ; For we would fain resume our play, And not to work return.

" Examination Question: " Describe the appearance of an egg one minute old, two hours old, twenty-four hours old, six weeks old. " Betty ' s Answer: " When an egg is one minute old, it is fresh. The yellow is perfect, and also the white. It is not addled a bit. When two hours old, it begins to get a lit- tle addled on one side. Twenty-four hours old, it should be kept on ice. Six weeks old, the egg cannot be used for setting, because it is addled; and if you set it, it may not hatch; and if it does hatch, why, the chickens may not live; and if they do live, they will be frail.

Every one leaves for home May 28, 1915 .A iDip into tbc .future MT was a beautiful autumn day, and the trees glistened with even hue. I was Bitting under the lone pine on Normal Hill, trying in vain to train an inspiration from nature For the article that our Potpourri editor had asked me to write aboul the present Normal. First one thought and then another came up in my mind, only to be discarded. Suddenly 1 was interrupted i a Blight rustling in the leaves. ' ftrst I supposed it was some ;rirl who was slipping upon me, but I looked about and saw noth- ing. The rustling continued. Could Caesar ' s ghost be molesting me? At that instant BOmething struck my foot ; and. jumping up in fear. 1 saw what caused the noise. A tiny little woman, dreesed all in black, with a queer, pointed hat on her head, stood at my side. I jra .ed at her in aston- ishment, and presently she began to speak. " I am Princess ivy, " she said, " and I have read your thoughts. Y " ii wish to write aboul the present Normal, bul why not write aboul the fu- ture Normal? I will help you and give you the rare, wonderful privilege of gazing on the Normal twenty-five years from now. " Speechless with amazement, I could only nod a faltering assent; hut. reading my mind again, the Fairy continued. " (lose your eyes, " -he -aid. Boftly. A- I obeyed, I had a strange Feeling, as though I were drifting Far awaj into the heavens. Then Buddenly 1 Beemd to stand still, and there arow ore n: eyes a cloud, which gradually cleared away, disclosing a scene which was familiar and yet greatly changed. It was the Normal, but how different! ' There was the Academic Building, and there the Training School, and near the fir I the venerable old columns wreathed in ivy — landmarks of antebellum days. Bui opposite the v i mic Building stood an unfamiliar edifice — a beautiful -tone building — and 1 asked the Prim Ivy whal it was. " That. " said the fairy, " is the Science Building Then there burst upon the scene a noisj crowd of boys and girls, who were perhaps sons and daughters of Former graduates, it appeared to be the first day Of School, and here and there happy groups were meeting each other. My eyes followed the crowd, and 1 was surprised to Bee them enter three strange dormitories. I turned to Princess Ivy with an inquiring look, and she told me thai these new buildings had replaced Basl Hall, West Hall, and the old Infirmary Building. However, before 1 could take in the detail-, the scene shifted, and I recognized the grounds hack of the dairy. A quaint, home-like-looking bui ' ding, evidently the Infirmary, for a white-capped nurse stood in the doorway, nestled among the pines. Again the scene moved and brought into view the boys ' grounds adorned with two splendid dormitories of brick and stone. The scene then shifted from one place to another, disclosing different views of the campus. Beautiful trees decorated the grounds, and the Training School Building was covered with Virginia creeper. The walks were edged with flowers, and a boulevard, with green oaks and electroliers, led from the east door of the Main Building to the limit of the grounds. At the end of the boulevard stood two immense electroliers, which I soon learned represented the first two graduating classes of two hundred mem- bers. A familiar figure walked down the boulevard. It was our Presi- dent. His hair was gray, but he stepped as quickly and lightly as of yore. He was talking to his companion, and I caught the words : " Twenty-five years ago I did not think that I should live to see the Normal number two thousand students, nor did I think that it would ever be a college Normal. " The sun slowly sank in the west; and as the gorgeous color of the sky faded into beautiful tints of rose and blue, the lights of a hundred electro- liers burst forth. Then, borne on the autumn breeze, came the silver tones of the evening bell, and — I awoke from my dozing to find it all a dream and the campus bell was summoning me to my room.

Brother Spirit, you complain for no cause. How would you like to have five lessons a day to prepare and have on your finger lips, have to correct all examinations, and, besides, know all current events? If only eacli student would buy a World ' s Almanac, and also a Judge— as I was savins, if they would do that and in that way learn a great amount of Civics for themselves and the way to appreciate good jokes, how happy I would be, and how failures would be lessened! " " My dear brother, you require too much of students. All I would ask is that they answer fifty Physiology and Hygiene questions and never ask for their papers. I would put special emphasis on the last part of that sentence. Surely that would not be hard to do. " This came from a very erect little spirit, who always stood with his heels to- gether. " Why, my, I would not even ask that much, " said Spirit Number Three. " 1 would promise to pass any one who does not speak unless spoken to, and who can write the reaction between Cu and H L .SO,. " " Ha, ha! That is a pretty great demand, brother, " said a fourth spirit — " especially to hold one ' s tongue. Why, any student can pass with a grand record in my work if he can put a basket ball into the basket five times out of five. " " Well, well, gentlemen, this will do, " said the leader. " We must leave this pleasant place and return to guard our mortal bodies. Already the trysting place is almost de- serted. " Within a second Florine was alone. She was in a great hurry to get to her room, in order to jot down in her little memory book all the knowledge she had gained on this October night. Therefore, quickly touching herself with her silver wand, she was once more a mortal, hurrying to her room in Dining Hall. Six months had passed before we again saw Florine. This time she was not alone. Crowds and crowds of girls and boys were assembled with her before a tall pine. Each person was trying to see above and beyond the broad shoulders of his neighbor, and from every mouth came the cry: " Is mine there? " Florine was congratulating her classmates, as one after another saw that his name was upon the list; but she did not ask the question which trembled upon the lips of so many, for a month before she had been elected Faculty Representative of the spring graduating class.

" Dear Little New Giel: You are doing very nicely in your work. We advise you to sit on the front seat in your classes next month, smile, look the teacher in the eye, and laugh at his jokes even if you have to tickle yourself to do it. Deae Potpoubbi: What is a " Freshie? " New Giel. Deae Miss New Girl: A " Freshie " is a certain natural phenomenon of the animal kingdom, individuals of which species make their raw appearance on Normal Hill every three months: but espe- cially do they flock hither at the beginning of the summer quarter. Though it has not been definitely decided, some naturalists contend that this species is related to the gi- raffe, their belief being based on the unusual length of the neck. Others express the be- lief that they are closely akin to the chameleon on account of the rapid change of color, under trying circumstances, from green to red and from red to green. They browse about the campus, consuming vast amounts of chaff and furnishing amusement to the enlightened denizens of the place. After a few weeks ' existence in this crucible of high- browed culture, some of them take on the aspect of camels, for by humping themselves they reach higher planes and get their desert. Others assume the likeness of crayfish and back rapidly down. By the end of the term they have lost their identity and be- come minimi in many ways.

Pbatheb: Here are some exercises that might aid you in adding a few inches to your height: Catch hold of two ropes suspended from the ceiling, and have them drawn up until you are about one foot from the floor. Then tie a five-pound weight to each ankle and drop them on the floor. Repeat one hundred times three times a day, after each meal. I will assure you that in four years ' time you will have added at least one-eighth of an inch to your height. I ear Potpourri: Please give us muscular movement, so that we can pass in writing.

At present our hair is coal black or light; but since red is so fashionable, we would like to get the recipe. Lovingly, Vera Abbett, Hilda Moody, Noelie Bodin. Dear Girls: First, you must remove every bit of the brown from your hair. To do this, wash it in a mixture of chlorine and peroxide every night for three weeks. This will turn your hair white. After this, upon receipt of stamped envelopes, we will send you the address of a company and sample cards of theirs showing the fashionable shades of red. a O Deab Potpourri: Please tell me why my mouth has lost its Cupid ' s bow. Normal Graduate. Deab Normal Graduate: The reason why your mouth has lost its Cupid ' s bow is because, since leaving the Nor- mal, you do not have to say, " Pass the prunes " and " Prove the prisms. " O Deab Potpourri: My best is coming all the way from Dakota to see me. Will you please tell me how to get on the good side of Miss Varnado, so thai she will let me have the reception room without a chaperone? L. V. W. Deab L. W. W.: Follow these instructions, and you will have no trouble in gaining .Miss Varnado ' s fa- vor: Wear high-top shoes all winter; take your parasol and wear your rubbers and rain- coat to school when it is the least bit cloudy; lace your middy to the neck; get to breakfast on time every morning; do not loiter in the hall and talk to bojs; then march up to .Miss Varnado and tell her that your mother ' s sister ' s best friend ' s son is coming, and she will gladly consent to turn the reception-room entirely over to you.
