When Spring, with dewy fingers cold, Returns to deck their hallowed mould. She there shall dress a sweeter sod Than Fancy ' s feet have ever trod. " By fairy hands their knell is rung; By forms unseen their dirge is sung; There Honour comes, a pilgrim grey. To bless the turf that wraps their clay, And Freedom shall awhile repair To dwell a weeping hermit, there! " (8) iln fHrmonj— (Hmttuutrfc " Yr OLDIFRS of Normal, who gave their lives so graciously, whether in active £S|£ ' battle, in training camps, in the air, on board ship, or where not, the stu- dents, faculty, alumni, board of administrators, and all other friends of the Louisiana State Normal School, pay to them this simple little tribute ol great love and highest respect. On account of war and post-war conditions the plans for this Annual were not for- mulated until very late in this school year, hence our not being able to procure the exact data and pictures of these beloved dead, as we so desired, but the likeness of the excellent soldier, Gordon Peters — so young in years, yet so brave in spirit — which prefaces this " In Memonam, " is symbolic of all our Normal boys and men, who in the very burst of youth and vigor, died that others might have more and better life, and " That the govern- ment of the people, for the people, by the people, should not perish from the earth. " How or where or when our brave Normal soldiers died matters not. Whether they sleep on the shores of " Sunny France " or under bright Italian skies, or in our own dear Ameiican soil where their last resting places are tenderly cared for, their spirits still live, and will never cease to live, not only in the hearts and minds of those nearest and dearest by ties of blood and school associations, but in a newer and finer body of citizens through- cut an international world whose ideal is that of the grand American Republic and thesL e-pecial loved ones — " The Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God. " (9) The First Gold Star HE first Louisiana man to die in service was a noble representative of the same Alma Mater we all cherish and love. Louis M. Griffin was with the very first volunteers for service, leaving Normal Hill for that purpose a few days after America entered the war. It was always his desire to do his part for mankind, and when the call came for men, he quickly and gladly responded to go and make the supreme sacrifice. It was while on duty at Jackson Barracks that this strong, upright soldier went to reap the reward of one who had done his duty. And on that quiet spring day, as our flag at half mast solemnly floated about, we paid our tribute to one who gave his all for his school, his country and his God. He did his part as nobly and as fully as those who saw service overseas and died in the midst of the cannon ' s roar. He was the first of our boys who entered the service to leave us, and now, two years afterwards, our tears fall as they did when he heard the sad news, but with Louis, we know, " All is well.

Rogers The Normal Boys ' Response to the Call to the Colors When the call to the colors resounded through our country, that so awakened that never-dying patriotism embedded in the heart and nerve and sinew of the sons of America, a direct strain of the heroic music stirred the hearts of those who were drinking at wisdom ' s fountain — Normal. The fact that civilization was at stake and service was needed, was the inspiration that caused every interest of self to be discarded. The question was never asked, " Are you going into the service? " The common question was, " In what branch of the service are you going to enlist? " Not only was there a unanimous response by those sons of Normal then in attend- ance, but all those who in past years learned the lessons of justice and righteousness at the feet of our Alma Mater were endowed with this same patriotic spirit. 1 he spirit of ' 1 7 is unsurpassed by any other in history. For a typical picture of this spirit just cast your eyes on Normal in the spring of 1917, then in the fall of 1918. In the spring of 1917 there were more than a hundred boys in attendance — a fine hardy group, living in peace and dreaming of the future when they should be directing the foot- steps of the youth of the state. When the long contest of right against might closed in the fall of 1918 there was not a boy of military age in school. All who were able to bear arms had gone " to do and to die for the eternal right. " While our service flag is fortunate in bearing only a few gold stars it is because destiny assigned only these to the honor. Now that the long and bloody contest is over, and peace re:gns supreme, may there be one sentiment for the soldiers living and dead, " Cheers for the living and tears for the Marvin T. Green. (II) Red Cross 1 OON after America entered the World War the growing interest in Red Cross work of the girls at the Normal School found an avenue of expression in the Normal Auxiliary to the Natchitoches Red Cro;s Chapter. A class room on the second floor of the Academic Buildirg was fitted up with tables, cabinets, and all the needed conveniences fcr the making of surgical dressings. The girls went to work with a patriotism worthy of the highest in American womanhood and the great cause in which our country had engaged. They were formed into squads under students and faculty captains, and made thousands of compresses, sur- gical wipes, abdominal bandages, and some pneumonia jackets. These squads under the leadership of Miss Roberta Newell, worked at vacant periods, before dinner, on Saturdays and Sundays. The quality of the work always received the highest rating from the regular inspectors from the chapter headquarters, and tSe chapter itself was on the honor roll of the Gulf Division. Refugee garments were made by the dozens in the Domestic Art rooms and the campus and the auditorium always exhibited indefatigable knitters of socks, sweaters, hel- mets, and mufflers. When a call came for hospital towels the g rls purchased a hundred, laundered and bundled them ready for shipment Overseas. In short, the young women of the Normal in this supreme test of character, proved themselves to b? among the worthiest. To Our Boys Upon the far off fields of France Where sleep our soldiers brave, A cross its lonely vigil keeps. Above the narrow j;ravc. Upon the far off fields of France The fields that we may never see. Lie buried all our hearts held clear Who died for you and me. (12) Campaign of Patriotism Through Education N response to a deeper understanding and the obi gation felt by the Normal, both faculty and students, toward making this war for democracy a success, we saw the necessity of a campaign of patriotism through education. The necessary things to life were first considered and, of course, food was of the first importance. The government foresaw the necessity of the truth of the food situation to reach every man, worn in and child of the nation in order that food might in every way be saved. The government realized that the schools were the medium through which the people could be reached. Therefore, cer- tificates were offered to students who completed the short course in Food Administration. Classes were organized in the summer of I 9 I 8 in order that we might learn of the food situation all over the world, and the method by which we might help to make the food supply adequate for the Allied Countries. A study of the uses of substitutes of the most important foods, meats, wheat and sugar and the best method of preparing the substituted food in order that it might be attractive and palatable was given. Although at present it is not a required subject it is still demanded by the students and has resulted in a Food Administration Course that will meet the present post-war situation. Normal not only look a step forward in studying food, but there was organized a class in War History in which the students could obtain a more accurate knowledge, a broader and deeper understanding of the forces that caused this great world crisis, and to give an educational basis upon which can be erected a more successful democracy. No effort or expense was spared in equipment for this course. Did the Normalites respond to this? We not only responded in a large number, but we all began to dig deep into the subject with enthusiastic patriotism. 1 he library facilities were expanded and there were added seventy-five reference books, twenty-five magazines, weekly and daily papers. There were five hundred pamph- lets and publications sent out from numerous centers, world-wide in scope. One has only to spend a part of his time in the library to visualize the war through the reading of mil- itary, social, political, national, and international problems. War French was given a place also. A class of boys wer: soon marching forward in pronouncing, understanding, and speaking French, for soon they were to see actixe service in France. The girls took great interest in this work as is shown in the enrollment of the summer term of fifty-nine girls and one boy. There has been a total number of eighty-nine faithful and patriotic workers in the War French Class. Every s tudent and every member of the faculty is now ready in many ways to say, " Amerique nous voici. " (13) Training School War Work SS1N April 2, 1917, the Training School met in special assembly to ask Divine Guidance of Congress in dealing with the war situation. Then and there we pledged our sup- port and from that time to November 11, 1918, when the armistice was signed, we did our part to help win the war. And when it was won, wc entered into relief work, etc. 1 . Before Red Cross headquarters at New Orleans could supply us with the proper blanks, the Training School had become a 100 per cent Junior Auxiliary with an enrollment of 362 pupils. Again in 1919 we are one hundred per cent enrolled. Our membership fees paid in to date are $230.25. The organization was effected by the entire faculty. 2. The Training School has presented one elaborate patriotic entertainment and several minor ones, such as flag raisings, special day exercises, etc. It has taken prominent parts in Red Cross and Thrift parades and when the local draft entrained, it turned out with banner and song to make their de- parture a memorable one. In all these activities the entire faculty took part. 3. In one year the school bought $2,595.25 worth of Thrift and War Savings Stamps, an average of little less than eight dollars per child. Rivalry between the grades was stimulated and special distinc- tion was given the grades that went over the top. Several of them raised more than twice their quotas. Thrift Campaign was managed by the principal with each teacher co-operating. 4. Food production clubs and war gardens were organized and supervised by Mr. Graybill among the pupils of Grades 4-10. 5. Nine smilage books were sent out by as many children, under the supervision of Miss Nelken. 6. A High School unit of girls under direction of Miss Gaulden worked every Monday at Red Cross Chapter Headquarters and turned out many hundreds of bandages. A similar unit under Miss Perkins worked at Normal Red Cross headquarters. 7. The High School boys under the direction of Mr. Hopper turned out sixty large packing boxes made according to strict requirements. The girls under the supervision of Mr. Guardia lined them with water-proof paper. 8. Two Belgian quilts were knit and finished by pupils under direction of Miss Gaulden. 9. One hundred comfort pillows were made under supervision of Miss Graham. 10. Misses Dickson and Gabrielson in their domestic classes in 8th and 9th grades made nearly a hundred refugee garments. 11. The student body collected and sent nearly a box of clothes to Belgian refugees. 12. Under direction of Misses Graham, Gunby, Haupt, Perkins, and other teachers, 661 property bags of various kinds were made. Some were sent to Red Cross and some sent independently to Camp Beauregard for use by our local boys. 13. Under direction of Misses Nelken and Perkins, and Mrs. Williamson, three large hampers of preserved and canned fruits, as well as a quantity of fresh fruit, were collected and sent by the children to convalescents at Camp Beauregard. 14. Each teacher supervised a branch of the Salvage Work, which was carried on in connection with the parish salvage work. 15. Voluntary contributions to the Jewish Relief amounted to $18.23 among the children and $51.00 among the Training School faculty. 16. The High School girls under the supervision of Misses Levy, Zimmerman, and others, had a " Tag Day " in town and at school for the Belgian Babies Fund. The amount sent in was $307.89. 17. By means of athletic events supervised by Mr. Prather and an entertainment arranged by a committee headed by Miss Zimmerman, the sum of $154.40 was raised for Armenian and Syrian relief. 18. Throughout 1917 and 1918 a bulletin board for the gist of war news was maintained by the faculty. (H) Finances — Liberty Bonds First Liberty Bond Drive $1,350 Red Cross Drive, ' I8- ' 19 President V.

We, the members of the Agonistai Class of the Louisiana State Normal in the city of Natchitoches, parish of Natchitoches, do hereby make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament. We bequeath to the prospective student body the numerous " rules and regulations " of our beloved Alma Mater, together with a ' 19-20 catalogue for each individual pupil in order that he may find refuge there, when in time of doubt and fear. To the " financially embarrassed " Neapolitans, we bequeath a dance hall and picture show, so that they may entertain themselves in their sixth term without any painful thought of expense, also our sense of honor and dignity, for without these the class could never exist. To the hopeful Thalians, we bequeath our bright and sunny dispositions which have made many days bright and cheery and caused many black clouds to reveal silver linings. To the Pioneers, we bequeath our knowledge, numerous accomplishments and our gratifying sense of humor. To the Pierians, the flower of the flock, we bequeath our utmost sympathy and brave- ery in coming through the first term successfully. Also our kind words, " Keep it up. ' To the timid first termers, we bequeath our brave, courageous and patriotic spirit. May this go with you throughout your lives as well as through your Normal days. To Mr. Roy, we bequeath an airplane in which he may ride day and night over the campus with the privilege of dropping bombs upon cupid who walks around in the form of " Normal boys. " To Miss Feltus, we bequeath a pair of field glasses so that she may sit in her room and see the couples in front of Main. This is a warning to all love-sick maids and youths. To Miss Patterson, we bequeath the remaining surplus in our treasury, in order that she may lay in a bountiful supply of " submarines and chasers " for the next epidemic. To Miss Russell, we bequeath a sign with " come in quietly, please, " printed on it so that she may place it on the outside of the library door for two economical reasons: 1 . To save her voice. 2. To preserve students ' nerves. To Dr. Cooley, we bequeath a trip to his much-talked-of Ypsilanti. To Mr. Williamson, we bequeath a large hothouse in which to raise his vegetables for Normal use, without fear of " Jack Frost " or Normal girls. To Mrs. Wells, we bequeath a new corps of maids who shall be at dining hall in time to serve meals in courses. Also a new menu to be used next term. To Misses Perkins, Hope Haupt and Bertha Haupt, we bequeath a " Red Ford " in which they may ride every evening in their rounds on " unforbidden " ground. To Miss Hart, we bequeath a coffee pot, the best that the market can afford, so she can enjoy her coffee, necessary morning, noon and night. We, the members of the class have signed this will in the city of Natchitoches, in the parish of Natchitoches, state of Louisiana, on March 7th, 1919. Gladys Adams, Lawyer.

Does the dear old Normal stand; Its portals wide, for those who knowledge seek- The ages ' wisdom, is theirs but to command With earnest heart and meek. For two long years, labor, learn, until at last You know the joy of goal sought far and near- Oh, requited now, the toil of those years past — Your preparation done. Take you its wealth, and journey far away. Into the realm which it has oped for you; Uphold its teachings, so striving to repay The ages it toiled for you. Essie Cook. Old Normal I wanted the credit; I sought it; I crammed and boned like a slave; Was it Math or Latin — I fought it; Folks said I was fit for a grave. I wanted the credit — I got it; Came out with my four last fall. But somehow work ' s not what I thought it, And somehow the credits aren ' t all. You come to learn something — good reason- You feel like an exile at first, You hate it like sin for a season, And then you are worse than the worst; It grips you, the school spirit grips you, It twists you from a foe to a friend. It seems you ' ve been here — why! — forever, It seems you II be here to the end. The class room, that interests and bores you, The clock, that is always so slow, The teacher, who harps at you, helps you, Recitations, half halting and low, Top-notchers whose brilliancy blind you, The blackboard, where weird writings slant. The clamor of traffic, it finds you! Oh, I ' d bid them good-bye ' but I can ' t. It ' s the school where the teachers are blameless, There is hard work and fun in the air; But there are some who are erring and aimless And there are marks that just hang by a hair; There is study that no parent reckons, In the library, crowded and still. There ' s a school, Oh! It beckons and beckons — An d I want to go back, and I will. (46) A Prophecy i. They had told me I musl prophesy But 1 knew not what to do. For 1 was not born a prophet Any more than one of you. I had spent the day in study And in thinking hard and deep, When 1 then, all worn and weary, Lay me down and fell asleep. V. While 1 puzzled o ' er the problem. Staring round with open eyes Looking for someone to question Of this marvelous surprise I beheld near me a lady Coming on with foot-steps slow. And I thought I would accost her And learn what I wish to know. II. I had lain there bul a moment In that slumber calm and sweet. When I arose refreshed and strengthened And looked out into the street. But I very soon discovered That I was in a strange place For I saw not one known figure, Nor an old familiar face. VI. As she came to be still nearer I thought I had seen that face Somewhere else, yet could not put it In exactly its right place. But soon she stood before me And all wonder vanished quite, Twas my old chum, Gladys Seward, And I met her with delight. III. I was in a mammoth city, By the size of which I know That city, New York, the nation ' s glory. Would stand but a feebje show; Great skyscrapers all about me, Airplanes thru all the air. Wonders far beyond conception Here and there and everywhere. VII. It was strange that I should know her For the change in her was great, She was very tall and slender While she moved with queenly slate; She was very glad to see me. Said I had been long away And gave me an invitation To remain with her that day. IV. I could scarce believe my senses When I saw the arships ' line Bore the well-known-of Natchitoches, While the same gleamed from each sign; And my eyes were opened wider Than they ' d ever been before. When I saw a slip of paper Dated 1944. VIII. Her kind offer I accepted And she hailed a flying car. Which we boarded, skimming swiftly Thru the ether fast and far. I watched the conductor closely. Twas a lady short and stout. Fully able to assist the passengers Stepping in or out. (47) IX. XIII. As she took my fare she knew me And stood pointing out strange sights — Thus Vivian Harris had proven Her belief in " Woman ' s Rights. " On the car a " fop " was sitting, Toying with a poodle small, ' Twas Florence Mclnnis — ■ I scarcely would have known the girl at By and by we came to the house Where Euna lived — her husband, too, But he was a traveling salesman — So I didn ' t find out who. 1 was very tired and sleepy And thought that it was best To withdraw myself a little For an hour or two of rest. X. Soon we flitted past a hill That looked like old times to me. For it was the well-known hill Where the Normal used to be. The place was changed now to show A factory twenty stories high, And I noticed a small fish stand. As we went passing by. XIV. I slept long and very soundly And you can guess my surprise When again, after my slumber, I opened my drowsy eyes I found myself in the cottage I had lived in long ago. Ere I started out one morning On this curious quest to go. XI. Behind the greasy counter Stood a girl I knew at sight — It was Gladys Adams, Shouting " Fish! " with all her might. I looked at her in wonder. For whoever could have thought That our old-time brilliant classmate Could to such a task be brought. XV. I sprang up and sought the window ; Yes, it was the same old town That in what seemed years ago I had wearily lain down; But my dream had been so life-like That even yet I could not feel That the vision I had witnessed Could be otherwise than real. XII. The whole day brought surprises; Claudine was dancing on the stage — She had grown to be so graceful ; Rebecca was an author quite the rage. Bernice, instead of being Mrs. Smith, Was an old maid, prim and neat; Martha had grown so very heavy, Anti-fat was all she ' d eat. XVI. So you see, dear friends and classmates. That it ' s nothing but a dream I ' ve been telling, however real and natural It to you might seem. But in this great world of wonders Dreams have oftentimes come true; So who knows but this, my vision. Might be realized by you? " Pete.

" Weary Willie " (52) Prophecy In 1923, on the fourth of July, In my aerial limousine, I tho ' t Id fly. Of course, I made Natchitoches my first station. And visited Normal, where I received my education. On entering Normal Hill, the first one to be seen Was Miss Ruth Margaret Babin, the present dean. I met a critic teacher on the lawn Who was none other than Edyth Swan. Among the other members of the Normal faculty Willie Watson and Myrtle Price chanced to be. In athletics and dancing at Normal, none could surpass For Katie Lee Weber was conducting a dancing class. During my next tour it began to rain. And I reached Chicago just in time for a great campaign. The first speaker, a famous suffragette, Proved to be my old friend, Julia Grimmette. Among others that were engaged in the fight Were the Misses Jones who believed in women being right. Before leaving the city I was invited to a ball Given by Mildred Merritt, now Mrs. Hall. Here I saw a charming Chicago belle; Whom should it be but Heloise Sorelle? After leaving Chicago I went to New York, And arrived just before the European was to embark. Celia Smiley was the leader of a Y. W. C. A. band Going to do work in a foreign land. I saw Hattie Mae Armstrong and " Bill " on the ship. Enjoying the pleasures of a honeymoon trip. What is that queer looking brig. And who is that dressed in an explorer ' s rig? It ' s a ship on an Arctic expedition bound And at its helm small Alice Dyer is found. After all good-bys were said I sorrowfully turned my head. But suddenly my face grew alight When a friend, Mabel Kennedy, met my sight. In a few minutes we were on Broadway, And saw at the theater a wonderful play. Looking over the program, I was given quite a jar To find Anna Barman now a movie star. While in the city I met Ora Lou Walker, looking stately and staid. Had chosen to be a hopeful old maid. As I was glancing over pictures drawn by artists of great fame, I found one inscribed with Kathleen Merntt ' s name. I grew very tired of traveling around, And then decided to settle down ; No Man ' s Land was my final destination. Where I found Ruth Milburn, a novelist as her occupation. After a week in this place I had been. I saw several aeroplanes descend; Some of the tourists whom I knew to be Gladys Rogers, Nancy Summers and Carrie Montgomery. Anita Burleigh, Mamie Davis and Blanche Patton, I met. Who said they had never found the right man yet. While I was talking to my friends they revealed to me their plan — They wanted to help in the reconstruction of No Man ' s Land. We, Thalians, have all lived up to our name. And prospered well in the world ' s great fame. Clara Ramsey.

' Officers Dorothy Gregg President Ellen Didier Vice-President Gertrude Parker Secretary Mary O ' Neil Treasurer Class Editors Anna Powers Emma Cockerman Corine Akers Too Low They Build Who Build Beneath the Stars Every one of any culture, of any degree of personality, has an ambition, a hope, a desire, to be one chosen from the many. Those who succeed in the greatest degree aspire the highest, so high that in the beginning the thing for which they strive seems as remote as the stars that look down from their places in the sky on the great mass of humans who struggle each day for the things that do not die. When one starts to work to climb to his ambition one comes to two roads. The paths of one are broad and smooth. The people take their time and enjoy themselves. The other road is full of rocks which cut the feet, there are mountains to climb, sloughs of Despair to wade through. The man who chooses this road as a means of gaining what he desires must learn the hard lessons of patience, cheerfulness, courage, sorrow, discouragement, to take it all with a smile and every day to struggle forward. When one reaches the end of this road one comes to the land of the things that do not die. The other road, the road of Pleasure, from w hich one can see the same stars that he saw from the Road of the Toiling Hearts, slants downward and at the end when man casts about to grasp the thing that stands for his life, he finds only a bubble which breaks at his touch. We, the Pierians, shall, true to our motto, build our lives so that we may reach the star that stands for our aspirations, guided by the stars of Hope, Love, Kindliness and Service.

A. K. Debate Resolved: — That Mother Goose Rhymes are more instructive than the modern classics. Madam Chairman, honorable judges, ladies and gentlemen: The question which is before us tonight is a matter of the utmost importance, so much so that we have to take a deep draught from the " Pierian Spring " before coming to any conclusion whatever on the subject. Since we are to become teachers, and the developers of future geniuses — perhaps — we must be tremendously interested. I ask you to concentrate to the utmost of your ability on the question which I am about to propound. How many in this intellectual assembly have had classics read them in their infancy? Ladies, gentlemen and honorable judges, after a profound research and scientific investigation I am glad to be able to answer that question! No, the thoughts that the budding mind first grasped were those embodied in the idealistic Mother Goose Rhymes. Would that I had the time to discuss the lofty thoughts, high ideals and refined senti- ments expressed in Mother Goose Rhymes! The enormity of the thought overwhelms me and I see by your physiognomies that you, too, are profoundly affected. Lend me your ears, S. A. K., friends and enemies, for a few minutes more. Let us discuss this impar- tially. Correctness shall be my motto. Allow me to quote: " Fare thee well! and if forever, Still forever, fare thee well! " What, I ask you, is there left to the ever-insistent demands of the imagination in those words to Byron? Time past, present, and future, is too short a span for human mind to exhaust the wealth of neurane fuel contained in these majestic lines: " Little Jack Homer, Sat in a corner Ealing his Christmas pie; He put in his thumb, And pulled out a plum, And said: " What a good boy am I! " (84) What possesses more possibilities for weighty results than delving into the mysteries of that pie? What are Hamlet ' s self-centered soliloquies compared with old Mother Hubbard ' s passionate, compelling, altruistic appeal for light on the subject of feeding her poor dog? " When she got ihere The cupboard was bare. ' ' Who can deny Mother Hubbard ' s aim the more " Normal? " In parting, may I leave this par igon, intellectual, argumentative thought in behalf of Mother Goose Rhymes? Where else can you find a truer picture of that etherical inex- plicable state, " nothing? " E. Gaussiran. (85) Madam President, Members of S. A. K. and Honorable Judges: Classics are more beneficial to us than Mother Goose rhymes for these following rea- sons, upon which I shall proceed to elucidate: Firstly, the Mother Goose Rhymes appeal to our primitive natures, and not to our deep sense of refinement and culture. This is very probably the kind of literature, so-called, that our ancient forefathers used way back in the dawn of civilization. Are we, then, to use, in the twentieth century, the literature which our ancestors used? Are we to progress no furthei than that? Shall this war fought for culture and the upholding of civilization, have be:n fcught in vain? No — a thousand times no! Let us turn, for comparison, to some of the words of Mother Goose and then to one of Shakespeare ' s immortal gems. Mother Goose has been known to say: " See saw, Margery Daw, " Jack shall have a new master, He shall have but a penny a day, Because he can ' t work any faster! " Now who, I ask you, in these times of trouble would work for a penny a day? It is true that we, as school teachers, receive but l.ttle more for our labcrs; still, I think you will agree with me when I say that we receive a little mo e! Therefore, Mother Goose rhymes do not fit the times. We shall now dissect one of Shakespears ' s immortal gems. Come away, come away, death! And in sad Cyprus let me be laid. Fly away, fly away, breath! I am slain by a fair, cruel maid! This literary flower ot Shakespeare ' s genius fits the times, as it can easily be seen. Of course, as is the case in all of this great author ' s works, the thought is very apparent and needs explanation. It is clothed in simple, dignified language wh:le the Mother Goose rhyme was clumsily draped in jingly words. At this point. Honorable Judges, I shall leave the matter with you, feeling all confi- dence in your ability to render the correct and foreseen decision. But in closing, I shall take the liberty of drawing further on your time and patience by repeating to you another of Shakespeare ' s unquestionable masterpieces: Tell me not in mournful numbers. Mother Goose shall be our aim; For I know that Shakespeare ' s genius. Will some day make her hide in shame! Essie Cook.

ORLEY and her faithful Srvain, Paul, were strolling be- neath the Oafyes. They wandered on down the little Green path and out through the open Gates on their way to the Miller. It was June by the Callender and the Peace of a sum- day brooded over the land. The Cox crew lazily, and a gentle Wyrtn stirred th e leaves above their heads. They crossed a river which re- minded them of the Jordan, and the Bridgeman invited them to stop and partake of some Cunning— ham and egg sandwiches, which his wife brought forth at her Husband ' s request. Paul said, " I wish I had Moore " as he Tool(e the last on the plate. As they went on their way Paul clasped her little Bronm hand and drawing it through his Arm,-sirong as steel, said, " Let ' s stop in the Parl(-er, do you think you could ever love me? " Slowly she lifts her Smile]) face to his and Seals his fate with, " No, but I think Nel-lfen. " (93) Trial of Agonistai Judge: " Call the first witness. " Clerk of Court: " I have a charge to make of crime in the first degree — Louisiana State Normal vs. Agonistai — that they (the Agonistai), willfully, purposefully, and with malice aforethought refrained from disturbance of any kind, that they strictly followed the rules of this institution and made friends among all the teachers. " Judge: " Are the prisoners guilty or not guilty? Call the witness. " Mr. Roy ' s testimony: " At all times to the best of my belief and knowledge this class has conducted itself without annoyance to anyone. They have scorned the cut classes; have refused all holidays; have begged for more work, and have looked on practice teaching as the greatest of all blessings. They have considered the movies beneath their notice; gum chewing as an unheard of thing; talking and giggling as not worthy of a sixth termer, and loitering in the halls a never thought of thing. As president of this institution I declare them guilty of this terrible offense of which they are accused. " Miss Feltus ' testimony: " It grieves me to add my testimony to the already heavy evidence against the class. However, I feel it my duty to add to the incriminating array of facts so that their example may act in the future as a warning that such things as going to bed promptly, obeying these foolish rules, giving up one ' s own initiative to bow down to a teacher, will not be allowed here. They have preferred to stay in their room and obey the matrons. This, however, is not all — they have persisted in staying in their own room during study hour, have kept a clean and orderly room at all times, have come promptly to meals, especially breakfast, and have repeatedly, despite all objections and warnings, obeyed and have been thoroughly respectful to all teachers. I, with Mr. Roy, believe they are guilty. " Prosecuting Attorney: " Ladies and gentlemen — I feel that it is hardly necessary to add any words to what these witnesses have said. You have only to look at the prisoners of the bar — observe their faces, then form your opinion of their guilt. It is indeed a terrible charge against them that they have failed to cause any disturbance, any worry to the teachers. Think of the poor teachers who have been forced to stay alone in their rooms at night with no companion just because these culprits have made no noise. Night after (94) night they have remained in the solitude of their rooms, no conversation to cheer them, no noise to break the intense silence. Then again, turn your attention to the dean who so bra ely gave her appalling evidence against this class. After long years of faithful service shall she be turned out of a job because the other classes will follow in this one ' s footsteps? And then, think of the beloved president! How the time will hang heavily on his hands with no one to correct — no — and no meetings in the hall to break up. He who is never idle would be forced to spend many unhappy moments alone in his office not sur- rounded as before by visitors. There is no longer any doubt as to their guilt, but they must be punished in so severe a way that never again in the history of this insti- tution shall such a condition of affairs arise. Will the jury render its decision? " Jury: " Guilty of crime in the first degree. " Judge: " They shall be sent out into the state and made to suffer for long years, and their hair shall turn grey with worry and they will be doomed to old maidship for all time. " Mary Moore.

C. A. at L. S, N. S the Y. M. C. A. has done its part in the World War by carrying home comforts to the boys in the service, giving moral support which formed the backbone of Uncle Sam ' s victorious army, so the Y. W. C. A. has had its part to play. It worked hand in hand with the Y. M. C. A. at the front, and formed a much needed prop for the morale of our girls under the strain of adjustment to new circumstances at home. Even at our Normal was this influence feit. Never were girls appealed to for a nobler ideal than that of upholding our social morals. This movement crystalized in the organization of a branch of the Patriotic League with every girl enrolled. This year the organization was extended to all new students with re- sults worthy of the standards of the Patriotic League. The L. S. N. branch of the Y. W. C. A. was organized on the Hill, April, 1911. It has grown steadily since then, and today is important among the organizations of the school. Each one of the Y. W. C. A. field secretaries visits this school to study the work being done, Miss Mable Stone being sent to us last year. The Y. W. C. A. interests are manifold. The regular religious meetings held every Sunday evening are made interesting by rendering of well-planned programs on subjects of interest to the association. A Bible study class is held every Tuesday evening. Twice each week morning watch, which is a twenty-minute prayer service, is observed before breakfast. The social work has been carried out by planning entertainments throughout the year. It goes without saying, we all look forward to Y. W. C. A. entertainments. A room containing a piano, books, current magazines, comfortable chairs and cozy corners is open to the girls in spare moments. Here are found sewing machines to be rented by the hour to those who wish to use them. A nicely stocked shop containing fruit, candy, cakes, and other similar things is conducted by the association in a room in Main Build- ing. This business arrangement is a social as well as a financial success, for the girls love to linger there after school hours. A Big Sister movement has been started and next term the new students will be most carefully looked after until they have successfully fitted into their new homes. The work of the Y. W. C. A. is wisely and efficiently planned at headquarters, and each year two delegates are sent to the Summer Conference of Southern Associations at Blue Ridge, N. C, to prepare for leadership in the work the following year. Misses Celia Smiley and Margaret Hutchison enjoyed this privilege in June, 1918. Miss Leafy Jones was our representative at the National Conference held in Evanston, Illinois, in February, 1919. She returned with plans for the new work of the spring. How can an organization so closely in touch with the rest of the world and so broad in its work have other than the noble, uplifting, steadying influence which our Y. W. C. A. has exerted?

This department was organized here in 1910, but for two or three si years it did not advance very much, as the purpose and complete scope of the work were not well known. Our friends, of course, recall a little old- fashioned prejudice, then existent i n many good minds, regarding cooking and sewing for all girls. But the broader aim of this work is now generally known and the great results, already seen when a higher appreciation of home and home life is developed, bespeak even greater popularity for these courses throughout our land. The beginning courses covered such work as hand sewing of practical garments, study of machines and textiles, dress making, household management, food values and its prep- aration. The efficiency of the department was materially increased in 1915 by the addi- tion of more laboratory equipment. At present, we feel that the course of study complies with the Smith-Hughes Act in every particular. This has made the course fuller and broader, and yet closer to the lives of our younger citizens whom the students of this department are preparing to teach. The Practice Cottage, required by the above act, is a perfect joy, not onl y to the girls — different two at stated periods — and Miss Nitzkowski, who live in it, but to the entire faculty, and girls of the club. The girls of this department in the cottage learn the real lessons of housekeeping and home making by practice in it under excellent supervision. Courses in Physiology, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, and Applied Design have strengthened and enlivened the work. In fact, students of other departments are so inter- ested in some of the work they elect it, if possible. The students do practice teaching in this Home Economics work as in any other subject taught in our public schools. The instructors at present engaged wholly in this line are Misses Nitzkowski, Alicia Dickson and Hester Allyn. Miss Hope Haupt, head of the Art Department, also has a part in it. Miss Margaret Weeks, now studying at Columbia University, will return in the summer, full of enthusiasm and material, to help the department on to further success.

E. Our Creed E. believe in the measureless possibilities for wholesome living in the country, where bodily sustenance always is vouchsafed to those who are intelligently industrious; where in- tellectual food and stimulus abound in the soil which feeds us, the skies which arch our homes and the unfolding life and final decay of the myraids of living things on every hand, and, where the soul finds response to its every mood in the changing humors of nature, inspiration in the strivings of mute things, thrill and awe in the beauty, the romance and the tragedy of flower and bird, insect and wild creature, friendship and affection alike in fowl and faithful brute, composure and peace of mind in the tranquil shadows of arbor grove and wood- land, and health and happiness in the complete harmony of all nature. We have faith in the sterling qualities of mind and heart in the men and women, the boys and girls who are nurtured in the open country. We have faith in the future of rural America — faith in a larger prosperity, a richer social experience, and an ever widening basis for the enjoyment of life. A Rural Episode Time: Summer of 1917.

Miss H. — I simply can ' t forget about those grapes. And to think that we bend our backs and blister our hands and sweat in that garden and aren ' t even allowed to look at those grapes! Say, Sister, I ' m going to have grapes — just got to have ' em. (Exit — Miss H. carrying sunbonnel. Interval, 30 minutes.) (Re-enter — Miss H. carrying bonnet filled with grapes.)

You can have all Miss A.- They sure do look fine. Are these the grapes those boys — Miss H. — Oh, dear! Sister, I ' m afraid — I-er — my head aches! What ' ll I do? Miss A. — Go to the infirmary, quick! Scene 3: Infirmary. (Enter — Miss H. in violent haste pale as death, trembling, wringing hands pitifully.) Miss H. — Oh, nurse! Quick! I ' m dying. Oh-h-h! Nurse — Why, my dear, calm yourself. What s the matter? Mumps or measles? Miss H. — Oh, dear! Please, nurse, quick! I know I ' m going to die! Nurse — No, child; don ' t be alarmed. Get calm for a minute. Now, see! Your heart is all right, and your pulse is — why, it ' s just a bit rapid; but there ' s nothing wrong in that. And you ' re looking well a little pale is all. Now. child, you ' re not indulging in a nightmare, are you? Miss H. — Oh, nurse! I-er — I swallowed poison! Nurse — Poison! What was it? Miss H. — Grapes. Please, nurse, don ' t tell anybody. But you see — er — the grapes grew in the garden and I — er — just ate a few before — please, nurse, don ' t lell a soul about this — before I remembered that they had been sprayed with some kind of stuff — you know Bordeau.

Under the splendid direction of Miss Cecile Mandot, ably assisted by Miss Katherine Gray and Miss Una Allen, the School of Music is growing rapidly. The register shows that twenty per cent of the student body is at present enrolled in the School of Music, and more than twenty-five per cent is interested in some form of music. One-half credit is now allowed for a term on Piano, Voice or Violin, provided the student carries one hour of class work per week in Theory and Harmony. This half credit, working in with the half credit offered in Penmanship and French, attracts students to the Music Department who, heretofore, could not possibly devote time to the study of music on account of the crowded courses. The music work is being carried on with great enthusiasm. During the fall term of 1918, the Mandolin and Guitar Club, and the Training School Orchestra were organized by Miss Mandot. The Mandolin and Guitar Club was organized for the purpose of furnishing music of a lighter character for the entertainment and pleasure of the student body, but the interest and enthusiasm resulted in the forming of classes for beginners in fretted instruments. These classes, under the direction of Miss Mandot in Guitar, and Miss Beatrice Hawthorne in Mandolin, made rapid progress, as was shown by the splendid numbers rendered at the Christmas recital of School of Music, and the Vaudeville show given by the Training School for the benefit of the Syrians. The Training School Orchestra is also a new organization. Though all of its mem- bers are under twelve years of age, the orchestra plays in good tune and perfect time and performs with dignity a number of simple melodies. The spring term will mark the beginning of a series of mdnidual recitals by advanced students of the Piano, Voice and Violin departments. Compositions of Bach, Handel. Mozart, Beethoven, Godard, MacDowell and Leschetizky will be played by Essie Cook, Pauline Abrahm, Geneva Rountree, Gladys Seward, Eulah Dawson and Lena Browne. There is also under preparation a program of music to be given by members of the spring term graduating class. On this program will appear Pauline Abrahm. Essie Cook, Geneva Rountree, Gladys Seward and Doris Levy, representing the Piano Department, and Winnie Magee and Eva Mae Young, representing the Voice Department. The students are looking forward with great pride to this " All Graduate " program. Probably the most interesting feature of the Music Department is the Girls ' Glee Club which was organized during the winter term. This is of course due largely to our splendid director, Miss Gray, and excellent accompanist, Miss Allen. At present the membership of the Glee Club is twenty-nine. It made its initial appearance at the graduation exercises of the winter term. Later in the spring it proposes to give a program of the highest order. Selections from Lohengrin, Wagner; Adia, Verdi; Samson and Delilah, Saint-Saens, and shorter works by Massenet, Dvorak, Sullivan, Handel, and Grieg are to constitute this program.

Until the Spring term, 1918, it was a flounnshing organization, having many members, all of whom were benefited by the meetings. Because of the urgent need for war workers. Red Cross workers, and others, the Latin Club disbanded in the spring of 1918 to allow its members more time for such work. All of the money in the treasury was given to Y. W. C. A. and Red Cross. Now that the Club is beginning work we expect to keep up the brilliant record of the past.

If there were doubts be- fore the game as to the final score, they were dispelled at the first toss-up in center, for it was then that our running center, Rice, showed her superiority over her opponent, which continued throughout the game, and finally resulted in a " mop-up " for Normal by a score of 65-1 3. Our forwards, Caller.der and Coriey, can hardly be described, as one has to see them to appreciate their playing. It embodies everything in the way of perfect passing, lightning speed and sure aiming. They haven ' t met their equals yet and are not likely to. We are willing to put our guards, Blackman and Swain, to a test with any forwards in the state and are certain that the result will be a victory for the purple and white. Our centers, Perkins and Rice, manage center to suit themselves. Rice seems to draw the ball to her in same unaccountable way, and once in her hands she handles it with the art and skill of a master, in placing it to her for- wards. Didier and Jones can match any in the state and give them good exercise. The team this year surpasses that of any other year. The girls put on their " walk over " shoes before going into the game and the result is always a walk over for L. S. N. This is due to the splendid work of our coach, Mr. Hedges, and the wonderful co-opera- tion of the girls. Each individual plays her special part as a professional and the team work is as smooth as the ticking of a clock set at the beginning of the game and stopped at the final blow of the whistle.

PRESIDENT =□□= The Louisiana State University includes ( 1 ) the College of Arts and Sciences, (2) the College of Agriculture, (3) the College of Engineering, (4) the Audubon Sugar School, (5) the Law School, (6) the Teachers College, and (7) the Graduate Department. The University is supported by both National and State appropriations. It is a live, progressive, moder n institution, and affords to students of both sexes advantages and facilities for higher education that cannot be surpassed at any College or University in the South. It is becoming more and more widely known for the excellence of its training and the success of its gradu- ates. In addition to its thorough courses of study, it offers to Louisiana students the unique advantage of bringing them into close association with more young people whose friendship will be of value to them in after life than can be found assembled in any other college in the world. Nearly one thousand L. S. U. alumni served in the army or navy during the World War. They held offices ranging from Second Lieutenant to Major General. Tuition is free to students from the United States; one hundred and fifty dollars a year to students from foreign countries. Living expenses are very low. The next regular session will open on September 24, 1919, and close on June 14, 1920. The summer session of 1919 will open on Tuesday, June 17, 1919, and continue six weeks.
