To this fragrant jar of memory, we wish to add this year a new ingredient — some of our dreams and ideals of the future of our loved Normal School. Our gift is imperfect and incom- plete; but we ask you, gentle reader, to Ta}(c and use our tuorf( ; Amend what flaws may lurl(. What tlrain o ' the sluff, what warpings pa t the aim! ?CZ3 PRESIDENT VICTOR LEANDER ROY w Y ' Y ' % r ' , ' ' r s, ' i ' ' fez. m TneNOKmh If 2£l ' When I dipt into the future far as human eye could see; Saxtf the Vision " The Louisiana State Normal School iatl V J.T™ - IRST, a stately Southern home, impregnated with (he cherished tra- fig v@) ditions and ideals of the South; then, a convent, where devoted Sisters of the Sacred Heart gave unselfishly to the cause of religion and of learning; now, for thirty-two years, the greatest educational force in Louisiana. Such has been the history of the Louisiana State Normal School. Her heritage has been rich, rich chiefly in ideals. Around her, if one but have an eye to see and a heart to understand, still broods the atmosphere of Southern dignity, Southern honor; and the sacred ideal of service, so lovingly followed by the quiet Sisters, has become the very heart-beat of the Hill. Who is he that has known the Normal who has forgot that his mission is to serve willingly, efficiently, joyfully, the boys and girls " out in the State? " Slowly but surely through the thirty-two years of her existence, the Normal has grown in numbers, in plant, in equipment, in courses of study; steadily her heart has been getting softer, her blood warmer, her brain quicker; slowly but surely long- cherished plans have been materializing, until now in the near future can be seen distinctly the realization of the basic dreams of her founders and of her far-sighted and devoted presidents. With such a past, with such a present, the future cannot fail but be fair. Re- membering the achievements of the past and of the present, we know there is still greater work for the Normal to do, and that for her there is a future of even bigger ideals and vaster material growth. So we have woven into our Potpourri, the record of our school-life, — a bit of our ideals and plans for the future. May the hearts of all who love the Normal soon be thrilled by the joy of the realization of our dreams! i »?E I 3 o v O 1 - , J ; v4;?i ' ' iC» ' I 0, A KStti m m m.

(40) Thoughts of Auld Lang Syne So often I ihink of the beautiful place That is known as old Normal Hill; So often, in thought, do my feet slowly pace O ' er the walks that we roamed at our will. I remember the Matron ' s white hall of such fame; The proud columns, I hear, stand there still; But gone is the landmark of Sisters, who came To the convent that stood on the Hill. I see old Main Building stand yet as of yore, And catch all the bright, sudden gleams — The light on the lake, the sun dancing o ' er — All shedding on Normal their beams. I can see, with dim eyes, the old Dining Hall, Where we ale mid gay laughter and roar ; Another is there ; but I still see it all. Though I live on the old Hill no more. I smile as I ponder on Boyd Hall so old, Where we romped many limes, glad and free; The library, entered so loud and so bold. Was left just as still as could be. I remember one time, on a wonderful day. When we had a most glorious " street fair, " I he memory of which shall be cherished for aye; For such gala days then were quite rare. The battles of football, which nobly were fought Are held in my memory still. The gay sound of cheers on my ear 1 have caught. Which brings me a glad, joyful thrill. I remember ihe gloom that quite often would dart Cross the tired and work-weary brain. I treasure the dear friends fore ' er in my heart And the teachers who cheered us in pain. Oh, store up thai wonderful spirit so blest; You II need it, and know by and by That these thoughts you recall at your memory ' s behest Are the thought; thai never can die. Alma Weil. (41) Thinking of Normal When soft the shadows of the night are falling, When sleepily the birds their mates are calling. When golden stars shine from the blue above. And all the world seems wrapped in peace and love — When tenderly the winds are crooning low A lullaby to sleepy flowers that blow; When workmen sing in mellow tones and clear. As from their toil their waiting homes they near — I think of Normal. I think of Normal Why, Normal, do I love to think of you? Because I love to cherish mem lies true Of noble standards, truths that stronger grow , Glad service rendered willingly, and so — I think of Normal. Garnett Zimmermann. Twilight When twilight comes on Normal Hill, It finds the spot so calm, so still, In contrast to the day ' s routine When haste and flurry is the scene 1 hat greets the eye. The girls in groups of twos and threes Stroll o er the campus neath the trees; And oft a silvery laugh rings out, Which shows their burdens are forgot. And joy is nigh. When Normal days are of the past, What mem ' ry do you think will last As long as that of twilight time. When dearest friendships, grown sublime. Were first begun? Edna Fant. (42) A Message from An Alumna Dear Fellow-Normalites: Do you know what a saucy Potpourri editor asks me to do? She says, " Write a paragraph and tell us what you think of when Normal is mentioned. " Why. I might merely make a delightfully short statement and say, " Fun and Work; " or I could ex- pand it into a volume of rare literary merit — I learned that in Mis. McVoy ' s Prose Fiction class — that would rival one of dear old Charlie Dickens ' s in length and in the number of characters. Never mind, I shan ' t. There will be a little space left for Classes, Societies, and Sports. To begin with, the very first thing I think of, when anyone says " Normal! " right quick like that, is the campus in the spring when there are carpets of exquisite tiny blue floweri and white stars over the hills, and when every little nook is filled with luscious young clover. I can shut my eyes and almost feel myself back in class-room No. 25. Mr. Whisenhunt ' s " Describe, illustrate, and explain " trails off into space; and. in place of the dull drone of the questions and answers, through the window come the thrill of the cardinal ' s early call, the chirping of happy, busy birds, and perhaps the tumultuous burst of the mocking bird in a very rhapsody of living. The very next thing I think about is Normal Hill under the stars on a clear wintry night, when every window is alight. I can remember so well the walk home from " Main, " after I had studied an hour or so in the library. I used to love to stop between the dark Training School and clumsy old Boyd Hall, and look back at the big Aca- demic Building. The upper studios and the library were usually ablaze, and here and there neat little patches of light were scattered over the lower floors. Snatches of music floated across the quadrangle, and the steady chug-chug in the engine room lent a back- ground to them; but a sense of quiet and peace and rest had replaced the busy hum of the day ' s activity and hurry, and darkness had brought an air of calm dignity instead of the nervous haste of the brighter, busier hours. As I turned from the buildings of toil and perplexity, the myriad lights of the new dormitories and of Dining Hall greeted me; and the Infirmary Building and " I he Shack " added their quota to the prevailing radiance. 1 he walk led under the shadow of a few great black pines, and behind the buildings their more numerous brothers loomed tall and dark, hemming in the little v, iM of school life, so complete in itself and yet so ceaselessly changing. I used to wonder so often about all the girls and boys who came to live for a little lime in the bright homes and who then went away to that indefinite place, " Out in the State. " I worked and played with them, but how little I really knew of their true lives and hearts! What they were thinking and doing, planning and accomplishing, was . never-ending source of interest and mystery. " Wondering " was a queer habit of mine at Normal. Isn ' t il one of yours now. dear Normalites? Never mind, when you grad (-11) " H7 ; i ' ' ii uate you will know everything worth knowing, and you won ' t have to speculate much when you are " Out in the State. " I don ' t know what I think of next. A whole flock of rosy-winged memories, with a few that are the shade of indigo, come whirring into my mind. There are assembly periods when we all rose to repeat the Lord ' s Prayer, and my heart swelled with a great love for my Alma Mater and for the whole throng of earnest and frivolous, clever and dull, enthusiastic or knocking, fellow-students, who were brought together for a few minutes each day in that big room. Societies with their interests and work and the fierce excitement of the contests; Potpourri and Current Sauce and their efforts to reflect truly the spirit of the many- sided Hill life; football games, baseball, and basketball, howling bleachers, crashing band, and flying colors — all come crowding fast. Lyceum Courses, presenting great and near-great artists, have left me indelible visions of the beautiful and the artistic. The thought of the first Picture Shows brings vivid recollections of dear " Pap " and his hand machine set up in the middle of the auditorium. Everything would be running smoothly when " Bang! Sssss! " ; then Mr. Williamson ' s patient voice, " The reel has broken. Will Miss Roux play until I get it fixed? " A few minutes later the picture would flash on again, with the performers, as likely as not, walking upon their heads! Truly, my days at Normal were joyous ones, full of work and play and gladness, with a few heartaches mixed in to keep them from being monotonous. Here have I set down, as they came to me, my memories of the Hill; and there are thousands of others that return in just such a haphazard manner. I admit that, as I have written them, they resemble one of Maeterlinck ' s poems written backwards or a futurist representation of the theme, " Memories. " I have sacrificed all claim to wisdom or depth of appreciation and have given you apparently the most frivolous surface things. I believe I will start all over again and begin by saying: " When that remarkable institution, the Louisiana State Normal, is mentioned, it at once recalls to me pleasant hours spent in the accumu- lation of a knowledge of the fundamental functions of the child ' s mind, also, in the perusal of the extremely edifying and enlightening texts on Economics and Educational History. " Fellow Normalites, please don ' t dub me light. I realize that it was those enlightening texts and that hard digging at plans and methods that taught me my craft, and to them I am duly thankful. But remember that I am human; and, sad as it may seem, we seldom remember those extremely useful but tiresome things. When you look over a flower garden, do you think of the nice, worthy, but unassuming, old plow and hoe that made it possible? Please don ' t misunderstand me; I am grateful every day that I had the very preparation and subject matter offered me at the Normal. But, don ' t forget that the subject of this dissertation was not to be What Normal Taught Me, but What I Think of When Normal Is Mentioned. An ALUMNA.

Elise Scharff. (55) ? |«Sgf . " isSSS?! 4 The Tie That Bind; .J R P-w q ? US! before graduation, the feeling of love and comradeship between the ninth and tenth-termers seems to burst into new life; and the ninth-termers never tire in their efforts to make the last days of the Seniors their very hap- iest. This term the spirit of camaraderie was lovelier than ever; and - many delightful little surprises were given to the Louisianians by the Vic- torians, the class of May 1917. First, of course, there was really a wonderfully old-fashioned party. Charming Colonial ladies and their knightly escorts were there in best regalia, forming two receiving lines, through which the delighted Sen- iors and the " faculty members and wives " passed to a beautifully decorated bower ol Louisiana magnolias. The guests were served tea by dainty colonial maidens, who darted hither and thither, chatting and curtesying. The grand march was led by President Roy and Miss Sybil Moore, the faculty representative, followed by such a host of colonial beauties and smiling gallants as was never before seen in old Boyd Hall. The program was a fitting echo of the scene. A stately minuet, a quaint song of the colonial days, a George Washington reading, and brilliant numbers by the orches- tra, made the evening pass all too quickly. The following evening the Louisianians were entertained at a colonial dance. So typical of colonial times was this merry affair that the dancers were fairly transported to the Land of Long Ago, until the inevitable peal of the 9:30 bell brought the stern realization that they were only on Normal Hill. However, on Sunday the gay revelers of the night before fully realized that this was the last Sunday that the Seniors would be with their friends on the Hill. All morning long the Victorians, with the assistance of Mrs. Wells and the waiters, were busy get- ting the tables and the dining room ready for the Senior dinner. Appropriate place cards and a most unusual menu were arranged. When the lunch hour arrived and the dining hall quickly thronged with eager girls, immediately the strains of a march were heard; and in came the host of Victorians, who formed an archway, under which the Seniors, led by Mr. Roy, passed. As they marched in and out among the tables, cheers greeted them on all sides. After they had taken their places at the table of honor, a most interesting program was given by the Victorians — consisting of songs, readings, toasts, and enthusiastic yells — but everything done was symbolic of the reluctance felt at part , ing and of the good feeling that existed. Parting is always sad; but our wish is that the sadness may be lessened in the years to come by the continuation of this lovely custom that has been handed down to us and that has become a part of Normal life.

(74) Anticipations of a Practice -Teacher (With Apologies to Tennyson) You must wake and call me early, call me early, roommate dear; Tomorrow ' s the most eventful day of all this glad New Year, Of all this glad New Year, roommate, the most eventful day; For I ' m to begin practice-teaching, in Model, just over the way. They tell me, the ones who ' ve gone before, that I must act solemn and staid; Must wear longer dresses (Alas! Woe is me! some new ones shall have to be made). My dear mi ddy blouses I love so well, to shirtwaists so prim must give way, If I ' m to begin practice-teaching, in Model, just over the way. There ' s many a hard, hard task, they say, but none of such heart-rending might. With quite heartless teachers observing you close, while you tremble all over with fright. Preparation ' s forgot, and the teacher ' s sole aim is to vanish and fly far away From the realms of this dread practice-teaching, in Model, just over the way. Oh! how can I ever this hardship endure? The cold sweat stands out on my brow; My knees, they do shake in a violent way — I fear I ' m collapsing right now. Oh! if such a thing as a heart you possess, then for me you will earnestly prav. To help me begin practice-teaching, in Model, just over the way. Garnett Zimmermann. Some Psalm! Practice teaching is my Waterloo; I shall not pass. It maketh me to study after light-bell; It causeth me to rise before dawn ; It racketh my brain; It leadeth me in the paths of preciseness for the critic ' s sake. Yea, as 1 walk through the hall of I raining School, 1 fear all evil; For my knees do quake; My plan and my text do not comfort me. He giveth me my teaching-card In the presence of mine enemies; He anoinleth it with F ' s; My ejjes runneth over. Surely practice-teaching will follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the I raining School forever. J. M. V. R A.

HELLO! Mamma! Yes ' m, this is me. Well, Mamma, 1 just couldn ' t write. If you knew what I ' ve been through this week, you wouldn ' t ask. Oh, Mamma! I ' m teaching fifth- grade lan- guage under Miss Cussie Nell(en! I wrote you. What about her? It would take a book to tell. And the children — oh, Mamma! You ought to see em. Yes ' m, but one turned a somersault as he came in the very first da)) — and Miss Nell(en saiv it! But, Mamma, I can ' t help worrying. Then Ray asked me my name before I had time to introduce myself; and then he actually intro- duced the class and told me something terrible about everyone of them. Yes ' m, I know it, but you never saw children as bad as these (sobs). No ' m, I won ' t, either! I ' m failing! I ju;l fynow I ' m FAILING! (Crescendo.) Yes ' m, I ' m well, but— but— I ' m FAILING! How do I know it? How could I help know- ing it? I see it written on Miss Nelken ' s face. Oh, I ' m scared to death of her. I can ' t help it. Yes ' m, yes ' m, I ' ll try to forget it. How are you? Fired the cook? Oh, do let me come home and cooff! Yes ' m, I can. I can cool( better than I can teach. Yes ' m. Say, Mamma, it takes a terrible lot of money down here. Yes ' m, I got that, but I had to buy shoes, gloves, and some stamps for your letters. Not exactly worn out, but I — I think a big hole was beginning to come in the sole. Yes ' m, I will. Oh, yes, Mamma! I was go- ing to write you tonight and tell you about our reception. I need a new dress. Well, yes ' m, I could wear it, but it won ' t meet in the belt by trvo inches. But, Mamma — about that dress — you know I need it, now, don ' t I? Hello! hello! Don ' t ring off! I haven ' t told you about the dress yet. Oh, thanl( you! But, say, Mamma, I guess you ' d better have that old maid, Miss Simpson, make it, for then I ' m sure the Dress Reform League will approve of it. Of course, I ' ll hate it; but what the Dress Reform League says goes. Make it trailing the floor. Oh, Mamma! Must you go? Well, I ' m sorry — but I tell you I ' m failing! Study? Why, I study from morn till night All I do is study and write to you. Ah, pshaw! I don ' t write to him any more. I can ' t think of him and teach, too. No ' m, I don ' t. Yes ' m, I will. Yes ' m, please, ma ' am. Goodbye. But, Mamma, I ' m failing! Say ! hello! MAMMA! Oh! what did she ring off for? (78) J 6 ' SS _m2 00-T3?!

Next will be the breakfast bell. Soon into the different classrooms All will be assembled well. Starting off the eighth-term morning With such high and cheery thoughts Of our teaching in the future, Thus fulfilling all our hopes. 1. With a smile Miss Graham greets us; Tis not how we feel ourselves! But an effort then o ' ertakes us, And we feel ourselves compelled To explain the mystic reasons Why the climate is composed Of the length of growing seasons, Filled with heat and rain and snows. Some of us must teach the children Of the birdies in the trees: How they chirp and how they twitter; And each one of us agrees That it is exceeding fun Teaching youngsters all through play ; So they ' ll learn their lessons quicker In a scientific way. To Miss Nelken ' s tender mercies Some of us are doomed to go; And she always asks a question None of us can ever know. Thus it is with all her teaching. Friend! be not a minute slow; For she holds you for the question That she asked an hour ago. (90) II. In dominions of Miss Gaulden Many of the class must go, Delving deep in strange constructions, Learning how the earth did grow; Ever urged to greater effort Through the frequent words, " Mais non! " III. From the wild into the peaceful, We will pass along wnh time. See! Our next task is debating. Where ' tis very hard to climb. For the Doctor ' s quiet seeming Keeps our thoughts right straight in line, And there ' s not a chance of dreaming, Or of gazing toward the pines. IV. Thence into the Palmer classes Fate does lead us, soon to be — If we hope and push and struggle — Masters of the mystery Of the pushing of the Palmer; Pushing over! One! Two! Three! A diploma in the future Hazily we seem to see. Well! we have our trials and troubles! Such is life, we all suppose. Soon they ' ll seem no more than bubbles — All our fancied eighth-term woes! Other thoughts will press upon us; Other duties hover near; But bright gleams of days at Normal Will bring comfort, hope, and cheer. Martha Shutts.

" (98) A Seventh-Term Girl ' s Diary FRIDAY, Dec. 1, 1916. — I have always wanted to keep a diary, but now I can ' t help keeping one, because (just think!) I am a seventh-termer. Oh! I am so thrilled! I got my slip this morning, and I passed in everything. I went all cold when Dr. Haz- zard called out my name, but it was worth it to turn hot again when all those P ' s caught my eye. Oh! I mustn ' t be selfish — everybody else passed, and they were all thrilled, too. MONDAY. — Is always wearing on a school girl ' s nerves, but a Monday with classes and no work to do is — well, it ' s not what I ' d call entertaining. TUESDAY, Dec. 5. — At last we are having a regular school. Everybody had to have his books to-day. I didn ' t have mine, but used half of Mamie Bowman ' s. How I wish I could have used half her brain, too! WEDNESDAY. — Class meetings to-day, and I ' ve done nothing but attend them. Notice the them. It ' s the truth. We had the first one with about five present. I, being a very popular young lady, was elected to a minor office. Then that John D. Hand person, with a lot of old boys, came up and crushed my young hopes by announcing that we were " unconstitutional, " and that the class already had officers anyway. We cer- tainly did feel like retiring in disgrace, but instead we stayed to fight. The atmos- phere was indeed hostile until another group of the class claimed another entirely different set of officers! (That made three sets.) Then it was ridiculous; so it ended in a laugh and the J. B. H. personage (mentioned above) walked off with the honors. DATE Very IMPORTANT (8:15 SHARP). — Mrs. Cooper and Mary Humble both on time to General Methods. WEDNESDAY. — We are " young men and women. " From the way we behave (or misbehave), I thought we weren ' t; but Mr. Whisenhunt says so, and I have vast respect for him. However, my respect now isn ' t a circumstance to what it will be when I ' m teaching. THURSDAY. — My neurone connections won ' t work under Miss Newell. Georgia Davis isn ' t in it with me, when it comes to being flustrated in Psychology. f-RIDAY. — We were very much stirred up to-day. We ' ve had a wedding, if you please. Esther was good in that Psychology. I don ' t see why she got married. MONDAY, Dec. 18. — Mr. Smith (that gruff individual who frightens me to death) was " sat upon " by little Willie Freeman in General Methods. I really couldn ' t com- prehend which one got the best in the conflict of words, but I prefer to give Mr. Free- man the honors. DECEMBER 19. — I saw pieces of thread sticking to the dresses of several girls. They didn ' t know a word of their lessons. I scent Christmas presents. So does Miss Hart. DECEMBER 21. — This is my red letter day! I didn ' t look at a book and knew my lessons better than ever before. I also finished six precious Christmas presents. I think I shall make a resolution not to study next year. JANUARY 3. — Well, it seems only yesterday that we left; and here we are back again. My brain is in a muddle. I am so sleepy I positively cannot keep my eyes open; and I have forgot all the Psychology and General Methods I ever knew. JANUARY 4. — In Prose Fiction class. Miss Rogers informed us that Uncle Tom ' s Cabin was one of the most influential books ever written on prohibition! I happen to have read Uncle Tom ' s Cabin; so I think I had a perfect right to join in the general scream of mirth that followed this statement; but I feel sure Miss Holly had not read it — and she laughed louder than anybody. Date UNIMPORTANT. — Mary Humble appears in a coat marvelously " plaided. " ' sgptfp mmm She told me she would be " teetotally ruined " if it got hot, and if she had to part with her treasured garment even for a minute. Dr. Cooley ' s tastes seems to run in different lines from Mary ' s. He gave evidence of the fact in class until Mary absolutely squirmed. MONDAY. — The health of the class seems to be failing. Nancy and Mary, two of our healthiest specimens, spent the night and day in the infirmary. It was rumored that they were suffering from broken hearts, as Miss Dean and Mr. Whisenhunt had seen fit to separate them. What would friendships be if one could not take bitterest medicine to be near one ' s friend, and far away from one ' s work? JANUARY 9. — We had our first plans to write for to-day. We are so proud of ourselves that it is right pitiful. Writing plans does sound so big!! January 10. — We got our plans back to-day. Maybe that sounds big, but some of us feel remarkably small now. Such is life! January 11. — " Certain parties " haven ' t been attending to their business. I ' ll mention no names, but there was a committee, appoined by the president, who were to get names and mottoes for our class. Neither the names, nor the mottoes, nor the com- mittee have been seen or heard of since; and the poor seventh term seems doomed to go nameless, not to mention mottoless. FRIDAY THE 12th. — We were discussing very deep subjects in Psychology to-day. Miss Newell seemed to realize the fact, because she asked May Hcllingshead to move by Mr. Brouillette to get more light. Then Miss Bomar came out in a blaze of light, big enough to enlighten the whole class with, " The human instincts are like ieaves on a tree. " JANUARY 15. — We observed for the first time! Those children aie perfectly precious! I want to adopt every one of them. Suppose I should adopt every child I teach! I should have to marry a billionaire to support us all. I know none of the seventh term boys are billionaires, so what shall I do? JANUARY 18. — We are having tests by the wholesale. There is nothing left but to take them, either, because a certain well-known member of our seventh term resorted to the " Infirmary in time of test, " and stayed right in her little bed through a basketball game and a dinner (by express permission of Mr. Roy). Monday THE 22 ND. — We got our slips to-day! We all got good ones; so we are seventh-and-a-half-termers (if there be such things). January (either 25th or 26th, or maybe the 27th). — We have been working so hard that the date is completely lost in a mass of Plans, Psychology Notes. and English papers. SEVERAL Days LATER. — Mrs. DeBaillon presided in Miss Newell ' s place. Mr. Cook was very prominent in class discussion (I believe almost too prominent for the chairman ' s peace of mind). FEBRUARY 5. — Mr. Winstead has had a new and very strange turn of mind. He says that from now on he intends giving us a test every Monday ! I wonder what evil spirit has got into him? He used to be so generous, too! MARCH 2. — In just one day we shall pass out of the seventh term into the eighth. It seems almost as if we were graduating except that the sadness of parting is way off in the far-distant future. I have observed, though, that most of us have lately acquired that " knowing air " which goes with the higher terms. Notable examples are Vannie Cook and Kate Landry. Especially does the former always appear absolutely " pre- occupied " with weighty matters. To-day I shall have to say good-bye to my seventh term diary, as I couldn ' t think of desecrating its contents by happenings not belonging to that eventful period of our school life. The seventh term was probably not so eventful; but it will certainly always be remembered as one of the happiest limes of our lives. Nancy Moncure.

With P- ' s galore We need nothing more To put us ahead in the race. With Elizabeth, Ethel, and Ivy, And Eva Lou banging so blithely. We dance on our way. Attended all day By a band of musicians so lively. There was a young fellow named Avery, Who, stung by a bee, went so crazy, That, restored by the scream Of fresh Marvin Green, Was never more known to be lazy. There was a young girl named Ruth Honey- cutt; And Lucien, who ne ' er kept his mouth shut, When asked if he knew her, Replied, " Yes, I do, sir; I hope you don ' t think I ' m a nut. " Please put accent on the-)-. These lines illustrate poetic license. (118) - 3 A Bit of Third Term Jingle A sociable lady named Beli, When called on by Fournel to tell What she knew about mass. Said, " I ' m able to pass, Even though you don ' t think I can spel Strawberry blonde Miss McGee, Fair midget, and slim as can be; But next, if you look Is round Essie Cook — Quite different are they, you can see! To the races went Leila one day. On hearing her talk, they did say, " Her tongue can outrace Any horse in this place. You ' ll see if you get in its way. " Mabel, so fond of the boys, you know, Unlike Florence, goes out for a show. Talks day after day In the same loving way, And her eyes — they do shine with a glow. If dancing could get her P-j- ' s, Little Jeanne would escape many fusses. She ' d dance every day So proudly and gay. And have easy times getting crushes. Tis only the primmest of styles Can suit the boy of such wiles. Joe Fuller ' s his name; Ju«t see why he came — For at Lurhne he pleasantly smiles. Jessie Mae and Ysabel Ellis Should be chums, for both are so zealous; As for Kenneth and Hardy Who never were tardy. What they think of the girls ihey won ' t lell us. Glad praises we ' ve sung of third termers; They ' ll be in a race with great learners. We bet on them all. Though sometimes they fall; We ' re sure they for knowledge are yearners. Ysabel Ellis.

That is thei dea we get from the way they rush and tumble over us as we attempt to move from one classroom to another.

Your alumni will defend you; To your teaching they ' l 1 be true. O ' er the spacious open portals In the marble, there are wrought Words of courage, truth and beauty — Words that challenge noblest thought: It is Labor that is Worship, Tis the ideal we have soughi. Years ago beneath our banner. Girls and boys, we made that vow; Men and women, now, we gather In the strength of all our power. And we see a stately building With a gleaming marble dome; Beauteous are its massive arches. Carved as those of pagan Rome, When that ancient city welcomed Its great victors to their home. Proudly waves Eclectic ' s banner In its marble hall o ' er there, X aves in gold and purple splendor. Telling of the victories fair Won through Labor and through worship Neath its silken folds so rare. E. L. S., you ' re larger, grander, Than you ever were before. For you ' re builded on foundations Of the true who ' ve gone before. Camille Dreyfus (139) .-o X.. ? - - V _-v- n Jivbs yv Ste Sa?. ' 8fl AREN ' T E. L. S. - S HAPPY!

A PC Pl ' t||§ T was the night of May 23, 1916, — that memorable night on which the Gold and White fought and conquered as she had never fought and con- quered before. I had seen our fair girls of the quartet crowned with laurels; I had seen our orator and our declaimer triumph over M. C. C. E§$ and E. L. S. It was all so wonderful and yet — something strange min- gled with my overflowing happiness and joy. That night of all nights was a beautiful one. The moon with its " thousand eyes " cast its silver beams over the Normal Campus; the pines swayed softly to and fro, as if they, too, were glad— glad of S. A. K. ' s victory. Still something held me back from going to my room. I crept silently toward one of the tallest pines, and sank beneath its branches. " Tell me, O Pine! why I ' m so happy, and yet, and yet — " In front of me stood Victory, with a laurel wreath in one hand and a scroll in the other, on which was written, " All for S. A. K., 1916. " " Lover of S. A. K., what wilt thou know? " " Tell me, " I cried, " why I ' m so happy, and yet so afraid? " " You wonder, you fear, for the future Gold and White; you want her to come up to your expectations; you want a nobler, grander S. A. K., and the question comes over and over again, ' Is S. A. K. at her zenith now? ' You are afraid, as Kipling was afraid, ' Lest we forget, lest we forget. ' " Yes, yes, " I interrupted. " Do tell me! I am afraid, ' Lest we forget ' that the future lies before us. Will the future be what we dreamed it would be? " With her finger on her lip, she murmured, " Hush, Lover of S. A. K. Thou shalt seee. " I felt myself suddenly lifted by the hand of Victory, and then I knew no more. I turned towards her. She still held the scroll. " What is this I see? " I exclaimed. " All for S. A. K. — 1925! Oh! " I cried, with excitement, " does she still win laurels? Is she still the best as of old? " There stood a building, on which was written, " S. A. K. Hall, 1920, " so modest, yet so imposing, a realization of our dream of long ago. " Victory, tell me, does she work as of old? Does she win as of old? " " Come, Lover of S. A. K. " She led me into the entrance of S. A. K. Hall. There written in gold letters were the victories of the last five years, and they were many. " What is the true meaning of this, Victory? " " Lover of S. A. K., the Gold and White, in her success of long ago, did not for- get. That year of success 1916, was the transitional period, the Renaissance of S. A. K. There was no decline after the height, for the members ' so lived and so labored that what came to them as seed passed to the members that followed as blossoms, and what came to them as blossoms passed to the members that followed as fruit. ' What you see there is the result of the awakening of S. A. K. " " Yes, " I cried joyfully, " I might have known that she would succeed! " I awoke. The pine trees still swayed in the breeze; the stars and the moon stil ghostly shadows, and still the lights of Normal Hill gleamed. " Only a dream, " I whispered to the nearest pine, " but I know it is true. S. A. K. of the future will be even grander than the S. A. K. of the present. " Rachael Norgress.

Williams Thelma Louise Zeli sk THE Contemporary Life Club is an organization which was formed several years ago by the students pursuing social science work. The purpose of the club is to keep its members well posted on all the current topics and the social problems of the day. Several prominent men have addressed the club. Two worthy of special mention are Senator Milton Cunningham and Mr. Phanor Breazeale, the foimer giving an exten- sive discussion on the smiles and tears of a politician; the latter, on taxation in Louisiana. 1 his year the club has been having a series of programs on Louisiana, in an attempt to learn more of our native state. In this way the members of Contemporary Life Club have become acquainted with many valuable facts concerning the history, the literature, and the resources of Louisiana. (173) Rural Life Club THE Rural Life Club was organized at the beginning of the spring term, 1916. Its membership is open to all students pursuing the Rural Training and the Home Economics courses. The purpose of the club is to discuss and become acquainted with the most important problems that are likely to confront the teacher in the agricultural districts of the state, and to instill in its membership a better appreciation of rural life and its problems. The club is keeping in close touch with the graduates of the Rural Training and Home Economics courses of the school who are at work in the rural sections of the state. The Rural Life Club is only an example of what is being done in the agricultural department of the Louisiana State Normal.

Swift Mildred Watson THE Math, and Science Club is a recent organization and a direct outgrowth of the many discussions that arose in the History of Mathematics class of the Fall Term of 1916. This club was created upon the suggestion of the members of that class and upon its sanction by Mr. Hedges. The relation that this club bears to the Math, and Science course corresponds to that which Contemporary Life and Rural Life bear to the Social Science and Rural Training courses, respectively. Regardless of the fact that this club is a departmental organization, its membership is open to all students of the Normal. The purpose of the club is to discuss, in its meetings, many of the recent inventions, discoveries, and theories that would otherwise go unnoticed. Many modern scientists and mathematicians, along with their works, are also discussed. Notice is made of that galaxy of mathematicians — Galileo, Pascal, Descartes, Newton, and others — in pre- pared papers and in oral discussions. Altogether the Math, and Science Club is edu- cative, cultural, and far-reaching in its purpose.

Every- one present was garbed in the Roman toga, and the whole affair was decidedly Roman in atmosphere. Different games were played ; and then Latin music, on the Victrola, was greatly enjoyed by all. After this, everyone prepared for the feast. What a novelty it was to most of us to be able to recline on couches and feast as the Romans did! Everyone left the banquet as happy as could be, and perfectly convinced that a Roman banquet is the greatest banquet of all.

Such a quiet, entertaining, helpful hour it is! Sunday would not be Sunday without it. Along with our regular Association work — just to make things more sociable — we have an occasional entertainment. Do you remember our open-air reception to all the girls, which was given last fall on the campus? Really, it reminded me of good times at home. Do you remember also our reception for the girls ' basketball team? The Freshies, I know, will never forget the " bite " we gave them one Saturday afternoon! Many other delightful surprises, along with important steps in our more serious work, have been planned for this year. We are confident that, with the continued wonderful help and en- thusiasm of Miss Smith and with the continued interest of the girls, the future of Y. W. C. A. will be even more rosy than the past.

It is called Apostleship because it aims at making all Christians true apostles, full of zeal for the glory of God, and for the salvation of souls. It is an Apostleship of Prayer, because prayer is the principal, though not the only, means it employs to promote the interests of Christ and His church. It is in league with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, because prayer and zeal are the very life of Christ on our altars and in heaven, where He is always living to make intercession for us. The Apostleship aims at making His interests ours, and in uniting our prayers and works perpetually with His, so that we may be one in mind and heart with Christ Jesus. (188) Vj :.

Lee P rather COACH is a graduate of the Law Department of the University of Missouri, in which school he distinguished himself also in athletics. He became a member of the Normal faculty and the coach of athletics in 1914. Coach is loved and respected by all the boys, not only for his splendid type of manhood, but for his deep interest in his men. He never asks us to do that winch he himself is not willing to do. At all times he is working for the best interest of everyone and for the good of athletics combined. In our contests, games, and work, he is a source of inspiration, not to be downed by a gloomy outlook, sharing always with us all defeats and victories. When victory is ours, he is as hilarious as any boy; and when we meet defeat, he gives to us some of that splendid courage that is the dominant trait of his character Oftentimes when defeat seems stating us in the face, he, by his kindly word; and encouraging slaps on our shoulders, gives us new courage; and the defeat is turned to victory. In baseball, basketball, football, and track, he always knows what is best to do and when to do it. His training is so thorough that Normal has had occasion to be proud of his teams, especially of his basketball and baseball teams. Not only is Coach a good trainer; as a disciplinarian his equal is hard to find. His is not the cold or harsh discipline of some trainers; but, as one of us, he always gels the best from every boy. As a leader, a disciplinarian, an inspiration, and a good fellow. Coach will always be to us a model in our work. (205) Wearers of the " N " Football Cappel Halfback Overbey . .

Smith John McPhevr- on (209) Football YOUNGBLOOD, Hoy — Quarterback and Captain Speck, as he is known among the boys, is 22 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs 158 pounds. Speck ' s playing was, at all times, the feature of our game. He had spirit, and he instilled it into his men. This is shown by the way he handled his men at Lafayette and the splendid showing they made against such heavy odds. Besides being able to make his men fight, Speck was a fighter himself. Being especially good in sizing up the opponents ' attack and being a splendid ground gainer, Speck was well fitted to lead his team. He will be with us next year. POIMBOEUF, W. W. — Halfback Poimbouef is 20 years old, 5 feet 9J 2 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds This was Poimbouef ' s second year with the team, and his experience, together with his speed and pep, made him a very valuable man. His playing was not spectacular, but it was consistent. He was a good ground gainer and especially good in following interference. He graduates in May, and will be missed from next year ' s line-up. Cappel, Bert — Halfback Cap is 19 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weighs 145 pounds. This was Cappel ' s first year on the team. He was light, but his speed and his ability to fight made up for his lack in weight. Cappel was especially good on short end runs and off-tackle plays; and his signal always meant a substantial gain. He will not be with us next year, and it is going to take a good man to take his place. Hand, John D. — Halfback Hand is 19 years old, 6 feet 7 inches tall, and weighs 148 pounds. This was Hand ' s first year; but his playing did not reveal it. He played like a veteran. His speed was his greatest asset, and in every game he used it to advantage. He was especially good on t he defensive. He will be with us next year, and we look forward to his brilliant work. Mf.ndoza, Alfred — Halfback Mendoza is 22 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds. Mendoza failed to strike his pace until late in the season, but when he realized what he could do he made all of us sit up and take notice. He showed his ability in the Lafayette game, where he made consistent gains and played a splendid defensive game. He graduates in May, and we shall miss him next year. Provost, Crockett — Tackle Provost is 19 years old, 6 feet 3 inches tall, and weighs 180 pounds. Pro " ost, as a utility man. filled his position well. Playing consistently in the line or backfield, Provost was indispensable. He will be with us next year, and we expect him io do some wonderful work. DUNCKELMAN, W. F. End Bi Hie is 18 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, and weighs i 45 pounds. He is light, but speedy, and one of the best tackles that Normal has ever produced. Billie is a born fighter. This, with his pep and desire to conquer, made him one of our best men. He will be here next year. Watch him go. Napper, W. A. — Tackle Napper is 20 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds. Napper is the lightest tackle in the Association, but very likely the most aggressive. Fighting at all times, especially when fighting was necessary, Napper made himself valuable to his team and a terror to his opponents. Playing a man at Lafayette 40 pounds heavier than he, he broke through at will and broke up play after play. He will be with us next year, and we expect him to be even more valuable. Griffin, Louis — Guard Griff is 18 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs 190 pounds. This was Griffin ' s first year on the team. He was slightly handicapped by inexperience, but his strength, weight, and aggressive- ness made him one of the most valuable men on the team. Griffin will be with us next year, and we expect him to be a star among the Association teams. Keep your eye on the headlines. Football Potts, Paul — Center Potts is 20 years old, 5 feet 9J 2 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds. He is an experienced man, but was playing his first year in the line. His passing was accurate, and he proved one of the strongest links in our defense. He outplayed every man he met, and his game against St. Charles College makes him stand out as a star. In that game he broke through the line, blocked a kick, and took the ball over for the first touchdown of the game. Potts graduates in May and will not be in our line next year. Smith, Karl — Guard Smith is 21 years old, 5 feet II inches tall, and weighs 170 pounds. Smith is heavy, strong and aggressive, and he played at all times a good, consistent game. This was his first year. We expect this experience, together with his ability, to make him a valuable man for next year. You might keep your eye on him. OVERBEY, O. Z. Tackle Overbey is 18 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighs 165 pounds. Overbey was light, but had plenty of speed. His inexperience was a slight handicap, but he played a good game. He will be one of the best tackles, if not the best, in the Association next year, and we are glad to have him here. Armstrong, Meady — Tackle Armstrong is 22 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighs 170 pounds. This was Meady ' s first year, but he was a gun. At all stages of the game Meady could be seen breaking through and breaking up plays before they were formed. He graduates in May, and we shall miss him next year. Weaver, Burton — End Weaver is 18 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weighs 135 pounds. Due to inexperience and weight, Weaver ' s playing was not what we might call spectacular, but it was consistent, and we predict a successful season for him next year. McPhearson, John — Guard Mack did not develop Varsity caliber unti consistent, and his fighting spirit was very late in the season. His playing in scrimmage was vident. He will be with us next year. Watch John. Freeman, Earl — Guard Bulger, as he is better known, is 22 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs 185 pounds. This was his first experience in the line, and his playing can best be described by saying that he was a gun at all stages of the game. We need more of Bulger ' s spirit and more of his fighting ability. Orr, I. C. — End Orr is 19 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs ' 65 pounds. Being young and inexperienced, he was late in developing Varsity caliber, but his game was good, and he was a fighter. We expect great things of Orr next year. Farrar, Joe — Right End Farrar played his second and last year of football for Normal this season. He was handicapped by lack of practice, which kept him from getting into the best of condition. In spile of this fact, however, he played a wonderfully strong game — outplaying cverv opponent he met. He is a fast, heavy, nervy player, all of which he ably proved at Lafayette, where he played a great game. X hen he was taken out on account of an injury, his absence greatly weakened the line-up. Leopold, Thornton — Left End Leopold was kept off the regular Varsity onU by the fact that he was ineligible to play Association games. He is a wonder at receiving forward passes, and starred in every game he played. It is hoped that " Pole ' will be in school next season, as he should make a valuable man. Southwestern vs. Normal Egg Gtf m HE fact that s l I. I. had made a good record in football did not dis- rrt S courage the Normal, but seemed to put " pep " into the players; for, if vi l 5S ever l e P ur P ' e an White put up a noble fight, it was on Southwestern ' s (Cj g J) gridiron on Thanksgiving Day, 1916. Comparing the two teams from records of the season, both the fans and players of S. L. I. I. expected an overwhelming defeat for the Normal. Notwithstanding the fact that Southwestern out- weighed her opponents by an average of twenty pounds to the man, Normal demonstrated in a wonderful game her grit and skill. Regardless of the odds, Normal entered the conflict to put up her best. Whenever Southwestern made any good gain, some dirty, battle-scarred wearer of the Purple and White would cry: " Hold em, Normal! " On the next down, the opponents would be downed in their tracks. No, not only downed in their tracks, but the lost ground would be recovered. No appreciable gain was made by either side during the first half. At the end of the first half, a few of Southwestern ' s more cheerful fans executed a burial of Normal ' s goat; but, owing to the manner in which Normal had been holding them, the ceremony bore a close resemblance to a real funeral. The referee ' s whistle sounded for the third quarter. Again the Purple and White entered the fight, determined to do their utmost for the honor of the school that they rep- resented. The quarter ended, and still no score had been made. It was not until the fourth that Southwestern succeeded in scoring. The touchdowns that were made by them were largely due to the large number of fresh men substituted for those who had " blown up. " The game ended with S. L. I. I. 22 and Normal 0. The line-up for the game was: Fullback YOUNGBLOOD Halfbacks Mendoza and Cappel Quarterbacks Poimboeuf and Hand Ends DuNCKELMAN AND FaRRAR Tackles Armstronc and Napper CuarJs ... Overbey. Smith, and Griffin Center PoTTS (212) The Basketball Season HE 1916-191 7 season of basketball was the most successful in the history 5pj of the school. In every respect the team was very strong. The players were fast and skillful at passing. Teamwork dominated. What the (Q l opponents had to fight against was a well-trained team of five stars. Even the L. S. U. veterans found it impossible to stop the quick passes and accurate shots of the champion team of the Louisiana Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Normal did not lose a game to an Association team. The regular line-up for asso- ciation games was: Forwards Center CuarJs " Ted " Robert Miller " Toe " Breda Vernon Robert " Red " Rogers Other members of the squad were Leopold, Davis (Captain), Roy, and " Big " Smith. The scores for the season were: Normal 57 Goldonna 7 Normal Normal 22 L. S. U 13 Normal Normal 26 Louisiana College. . . 13 Normal Normal 47 Louisiana College. . . 12 Normal 68 Si.

He was fast, and accurate in shooting and passing. He will add a great deal to the strength of the team next season. " Red " Rogers has played on the team two years as guard. He was fast to " cover up " a play. Both in team- work and in shooting the goals he was good. Vernon Robert, like his brother, is rather small. His lack of height was made up for by his speed and accuracy in shooting goals. Vernon, also, will be out for basketball next winter. " Toe " Breda was a dependable guard. In time of danger he would rescue the ball and send it back to the " safety zone. " Next year will make " Toe ' s " third year as a member of the team. In spite of his lack of height, Leroy Miller was a good center. He " got together " with the other men in team- work. Miller will be missed next year. (214) Thornton Leopold starred in the games in which he was eligible to play. He was equally as good at center as at forward. He will make a valuable man next season. Mendoza, while a good forward, was not quite up to this year ' s stand- ard. He worked hard in giving the Varsity scrimmage practice, however, and was very valuable in this respect. Sanford Roy, though a regular last season, and one of the best floor-work- ers ever wearing the Purple and White, could not crowd either of the Robert boys out of the positions which they had played together in high school. He was a valuable man for the squad, and will be missed next season. Provost did not get going until late in the season, when he showed up well in either the guard or center position. He will be in school next season, and is expected to develop into a man of real Varsity caliber. Captain Davis, although hampered by a long spell of sickness, played well at center. He always came in for his share of field goals. " Big " Smith played well at guard; especially was this so at Lafayette. It is remarkable how one so large could get around so quickly. (215) L. S. U. vs. Normal HE Louisiana Tigers met the Normal basketball team on the local court $ December 20, 1916. Since this was Normal ' s first game of the season, nj ... the team had not yet had a chance to demonstrate its wonderful skill in Sj zZ£ the game. All felt that Normal could not afford to lose, but everyone had his doubts as to the results of the game. With a well-trained team and with the moral support of the entire student body, the Purple and White entered the conflict. When L. S. U. was ahead, the loyal support rendered by the rooters seemed to make Normal " pep up. " After a few minutes of play it became apparent that L. S. U. " had nothing on the Purple and White. " Although L. S. U. was playing defensive ball probably three- quarters of the time, it seemed as though Normal could not locate her goal ; and the first half ended with a score of 9-9. The second half started with even more " pep " than the first. Normal immediately passed Louisiana, and stayed ahead for the remainder of the game. Due to the close guarding of Normal ' s crack guards, the Tigers were unable to score a field goal during the latter half; but Normal ' s fast center and forwards scored repeatedly. Occasionally heard from the few supporters of L. S. U. was the Louisiana slogan, " Eat ' em up, Tigers! " The Tigers, however, were too far gone for support from the sympathizers of the Old Gold and Purple to help them. The game ended with the score standing 22-13, in favor of Normal . The line-up for the game was: L. S. U. Edmonp Right Forward Pearce Left Forward Cavett Center S. Wilkinson Gill, Lewis NORMAL . " Ted " Robert Vernon Robert, Roy Miller. Leopold Left Guard Rogers Right Guard Breda (216) The Nightshirt Parade ■ l! § T 7:30 on the night of December 20 a very strange pro- cession left the Shack. It went into the Dormitory Court, c.nd there many lusty yells were given in honor of the Normal basketball team. Who would blame these boys for such peculiar proceedings? Normal had defeated her strongest rival, L. S. U., that afternoon by the decisive score of 22 to 1 3. From the Dormitory Court the Nightshirt Parade passed down the main walk through the entrance into town. Fr om the Normal grounds the weird procession went in a zigzag manner to Coach Prather ' s home, where hearty cheers were given him. Then, through the middle of the streets, this crowd of white-robed, yelling boys started for town, gaining in numbers as it went. On reaching the courthouse a circle was formed, and more cheers were given for the team, the school, coach, and every- thing that could be thought of. At the next corner the same thing hap- pened. At Levy ' s corner still more cheers were given. The parade then went to the moving picture show, and the show was stopped while cheer after cheer was given. Then the street fair was visited in a like manner. Many fireworks were bought and taken back to the Hill, where an exhibition was given for the girls, who crowded the windows of the various dormitories. In recognition of the good work done by the team, while the fireworks were being displayed, many yells were given by the girls. After the celebration all went home tired, but happy and victorious.

Weaver Walter Poimboeli ,219) The Alexandria Track Meet THE first place in the track and field events at Alexandria went to Southwestern of Lafayette, with Normal a close second. Normal ' s team was undoubtedly as strong or stronger than Lafayette ' s, but the track, which was covered with sand to a depth of several inches, was slow and heavy, so that Pollard could not even approach his best in the dashes. The best individual performance was that of Leopold, then of Louisiana College, but now of Normal, who won the all-round cup. The mile relay, won by Normal as usual, furnished by far the most spectacular finish of the day. John D. Hand, this year ' s captain, running the last quarter for Normal, had a lead of about 40 yards to overcome when he took the baton. But running un- doubtedly the fastest quarter-mile of the day, he sprinted ahead of the Lafayette man just in time to break the tape. The high and low hurdle races, in both of which Sanford Roy finished first, were close and exciting up to the finish; and until the judges had announced the winner, the audience was in suspense. Beeson furnished a thrill in the mile when he crowded Sharp of Lafayette at the finish; but he was unable to recover the lead Sharp had gained in the early part of the race.

Except in the first two games. Normal was never able to put her best team in the field. The Normal gave Ruston the hardest fight of any team in the associa- tion, and, as a result of these games, earned second place in the L. I. A. A. The second game against Ruston was the best game of the sea- son. This was the game that decided the championship. Early in the game the Purple and White secured a lead which was held until the ninth inning, when Ruston, by a base on balls, an error and a two-base hit, scored two runs, thus tying the score. The Normal boys tried hard to make a run in their half of the ninth, but were unable to get it. The game went into an extra inning and Ruston scored one run, which won the game and the championship of the association. The local team played S. L. I. I. on the Normal diamond. South- western scored first, but the Purple and White soon overcame this lead. The game was hard-fought to the end. When the ninth inning was over the score stood: Normal 9 ; S. L. I. I. 6. The second game with South- western was a still more decisive victory for Normal. The game ended with the score standing: Normal 8; S. L. I. I. 2. The team for 1917 is being organized, and at this time the outlook is very promising. This year ' s team is expected to be the best that has ever represented the Normal. (222) 4l,n, U. Girls ' Basketball THIS year L. £. N. had a girls ' basketball team of which it may justly be proud. Although composed practically of new members, it. with the faithful and able coaching of Mr. Hedges and the diligent and conscientious work of its members, developed splendid teamwork, and as a result did not lose a game during the entire season. The first games were played on January 12 and 13, in Boyd Hall, with Goldonna. From the start Normal showed her superiority in passing and in shooting goals. The games resulted in brilliant victories for the Purple and White. The scores were 34-9 for the first game and 27-5 for the second game. On January 19 and 20 the Alexandria girls visited the Hill. I hey played good games, but went down in defeat before the Normal six. Not long after, the Normal team visited Alexandria, where they played Bolton HigS. The games of this trip resulted as all other games had. The scores were 36-12 and 58-19 in favor of L. S. N. The team this year has been the best in the history of the school. The team was as good at defensive playing as at offensive, although it had very little chance to show what it really could do in defensive work. The teams that had been strong rivals for the North Louisiana championship fell easy prey to the Purple and White ' s champion team. Basketball Lineup Gail Sharpless — Oh!

Its faithful sentinels are the trees, Which, through long years, in playful ease, With wind and storm have wrestled. A winding path leads to the door. O Little Path, the feet you bore By loving hearts were led. A flower bed on either side. Is bright with pansies, laughing-eyed. And roses, white and red. The lawn is wide, and slopes away To greet the road, and bid it stay- To rest ' neath leafy cover. E ' er onward o ' er its way it goes, Past banks all pink with sweet wild rose, And fields of fragrant clover. The orchard in the spring is bright In fluffy garments, pink and white; And next to it, the grove In shadows cool and fragrant lies, And murmurs tearful little sighs For those it used to love. Dear Little Home among the hills. The tender memory of you fills My heart with love and pain; You hold so much of joys and tears; We know you ' re waiting, through the years, To welcome us again. GARNETT ZlMMERMANN. A Christmas Thought Behold! the Christmas comelh! The stars shine clear and cold; The earth is filled with glory; Three gifts the Wise Men hold. 1 hey bear their costly burden Across the wild, dark moor, And bend in adoration Before a manger door. For in this lowly shelter A babe is born tonight; And over all the hushed ' world A star sends forth its light. And shepherds, led by angels, Approach the Little One; Tis God who sends His servants To greet His Holy Son. For He lies in the manger A mortal babe tonight. To prove His love for all the woild And bring to it His light. It is through love and mercy He comes to us today ; I hen let us love Him ever And follow on His way. Camille Dreyfus.

Josephine O ' Quinn. (234) A Fairy Story (class exercise) NE day as little Water Deep, little Soap Rub, and little Powder White were all three resting in their favorite corner, they saw Baby Nell coming in from play. Baby Nell had been making mud pies; but now it was get- ting close to sleepy-time, and she was growing very tired. She did not hear little Water Deep, little Soap Rub, and little Powder White talking of her as she hurried by. Little Water Deep leaned over and whispered just as softly as soft could be to little Soap Rub and little Powder White: " Do you know what I do for a dear little girl? 1 make her the cleanest in all the wide world. When she jumps into me all so splashy and deep. She most surely shall dream sweetest dreams while asleep. " Then little Soap Rub shoook his finger at little Water Deep and said: " Well, you help some, of course, and I know that is true; But you know very well what it is you can ' t do. can give germ-bugs all one most terrible fright. And with your kindly help I can put them to flight. ' When little Powder White heard them talking, she puffed up and chimed in: " When together we work for our dear Baby Nell. One charm 1 can give her, you all know full well; From her pink little toes to her bright golden hair, I make her most wonderful, fresh, and so fair. " = r • KM m — r%am-e - ---y Then they all three climbed down to go peep at Baby Nell. Baby Nell was getting ready for bed, and so were they, but they all three said: " I cannot go to bed without saying ' good-night ' to Baby Nell. " Soon they crept close, close to Baby Nell and quietly listened to a story her mother was telling her, and this is what they heard: " Little Water Deep made a leap, leap, leap, Bending round the baby with a peep, peep, peep; Little Soap Rub. with his slips, slips, slips, Spilled all over baby from her toes to her lips. Little Powder White, frail, blew puff. puff, puff. Peeping down at baby till she was white enough. " Little Water Deep, little Soap Rub, and little Powder White slipped aside and waited till Baby Nell was fast asleep with a smile on her face. Then they quietly crept back to their favorite resting place. OLIVE Long Coopkk. (235) The Columns The stalely columns on the Hill In brooding moonlight gleam like pearl; In winter they are chaste and still; In summer round them vines unfurl. Their tryst they kept, e ' en as the nuns; And Time, their father, them rewards. For still not one its duty shuns, But oft some smiling thought records. In times of old, I ' ve heard it said, These columns graced a home so fair; And, later, sacred duty had To beautify a convent there. And man, by vines for beauty trained, Has helped fulfill the columns ' choice Of giving forth whate ' er they ' ve gained And whispering, through the leaves, their voice. The columns stand upon the Hill A group of four, where birdies nest; In winter they are chaste and still; But wake in spring, in ivy drest. — Sybil Moore. (236) The Power of Nature When days and nights seem gloomy and oppressed With sorrow that denies the soul all rest; When daily tasks become but loads of care That make the heart to sicken with despair; When each day ' s tyrant weights of misery Refuse to grant relief, to set me free: Tis then I see the signs of Nature ' s mien. R eflected in the mirror of my soul; I see a meadow carpeted with green, Through which the singing brooklet waters roll. I feel a sense of rich, luxurious ease. The balm of Gilead, the soul ' s release. Steals o ' er me; sorrow ' s form appears to pass. As I sink weary in the verdant grass. My face is pillowed in its fragrance soft; Its dainty perfume charms the air; and oft Soft breezes come to whisper, winds forsook, As they caress my burning cheek and hair; The love song of the tiny, babbling brook Invites me to a restful slumber there. The tree o erhead. as if to save from harm. Spreads sheltering, protecting, loving arms; Its shielding, massive form seems to declare No grief, no pain, no mourning enters there; No horror of exhausted, weary mind, Which still must seek some knowledge slight to find. No worldly trouble, such as cold disdain. No disappointed trusts, lurk in my path; No thought of failure haunts this still domain. Released by nature from all aftermath. In such a voice to thee will Nature speak; A solace thou wilt find in Nature ' s charms Of verdure; if, when saddened, sick and weak With loneliness of crowds and earth ' s alarms. Thou will resign and sleep, forgiven, meek. Securely wrapped in Mother Nature ' s arms. Rose Taylor (237) My Guiding Vision When day is dark about me. My soul grows dark wilhin; Tis then I hear a gentle voice And pray, to keep from sin. When scornful smiles oppress me, And scornful words I hear, A patient mouth with tender smile Will bid me have no fear. When hostile eyes appraise me With hate and anger bright, I see two eyes of violet hue. That beam with loving light. When strangers fain would lead me From paths of duty clear, I feel the touch of loving hands, And know her spirit ' s near. My Mother stands before me, As oft in childhood days, To show the road of truth and right Through her unselfish ways. Camille Dreyfus. To a Friend When night comes down On tree and town, And fears my path waylay — To know you then, And what has been, Is a guide and light to my way. When hungry, cold. And weak and old. Away in foreign land — Your memory, then, My trusted friend, Is a staff of strength to my hand. Clio Allen. (238) J.f -■ I ft y i i Irt k A NOR M ' Xl Upstairs vs. Downstairs THERE was much discussion as lo the qualities of the two clans. Upstairs vowed that it could whitewash Downstairs, and Downstairs vowed back exactly the same thing. There was nothing to do but to have it out. One Sunday the tournament was arranged! The knights of the Upper Regions were Duke Leopold, Sir " Red " Rogers, Prince Miller, Count Hollinshead, and the " Big " Sir Provost. The fair ladies of the Lower Regions were defended by the brave Kaiser Mendoza, King " Ted " Robert, the handsome Count Youngblood, Sir John Hand, and the slim Czar McPhearson. The herald of the day was agreed upon. Although hampered by a small voice, Sir Griff executed his duties lo the satisfaction of all — but ONE. The director of the great tournament was Count Sanford. The mighty conflict commenced! Each time that a Knight of the Lower Story endangered his Honorable Enemy ' s goal. Herald Griff would emit feeble noises. Although his attempts were rewarded only with very slight disturbances of the universe, it seems that one of these tiny disturbances produced a peculiar sensation on the tympanic membrane of HIM WHO RULES. Thereupon HE hieth himself hither to investigate. Upon the field of the contest, silence prevailed. Hearts beat faster, knees shook, and many a feeble- hearted knight wished himself safe in his abode in Castle Shack. " Herald Griff, knowest THOU that thy melodious emissions of sound disturbeth him who wisheth lo repose? Get thee gone, knave! ' " Director of Ceremonies Sanford, didst THOU precipitate such chaos as mine eyes behold? " " No, Your Highness. " " Sir, your duties endelh NOW! " Thus the tournament ended. San FORD Roy.
