HE Board wishes to express thanks and grati-
tude to every cadet, alumnus, and faculty, who
so willingly responded to our call for assist-
ance in-getting out the 1919 BLUE Axp GoLD. Your inter-
est and enthusiasm were a great incentive to us to put forth
great efforts to turn out the best annual possible.
VVe are unable to express our thanks to the advertisers.
without whose support it would have been foolish to even
attempt to publish a year-book. As "a friend in need is a
friend indeedf' we urge every cadet and the school to bear
them in mind when in need of supplies.
Our hope is that this book will be a joy to you. As we
are human, we know there are criticisms, but we have
done our best.

.pi ,I Q.
i E a cuspidor. "Say, Duke, by the way, 1et's give the town the
slip tonight. VVe have been here a month, and nothing of in-
terest has happened." "All right, suits me, but where are we going?" "Chl
I don't know, we might drift around to Siam, and see the Prince. He may take
pity on an old pair of hard lucks and give us a harem apiece. Humy, you
sure have got an eye for business, let's go."
This conversation took place between two of those picturesques who had
wandered from one corner of the earth to the other chasing rainbows. They
were both about middle age, the one tall and the other short.
The tall one, or Humy, as his companion called him, looked like he had
been meant for either a paper hanger or a dress maker's model. One could
easily see that he had been very handsome in his younger days, but by some un-
fortunate accident, whether it was the glare of the railroad tracks or not, he had
been forced to put on an extra heavy pair of glasses which, to an ordinary person,
looked like two windows in a skyscraper, or the headlights of an airplane.
The short one, or Duke, as we will call him, was one of those jolly fat men
whose laugh makes the farmers turn around to see if one of their goats has fol-
lowed them to town. At first sight he would give a close observer the impression
that he had worked as a model for the fellow that invented the Kewpie.
They were a very unusual pair, and more than one pedestrian turned around
to wonder where they came from. S
"Duke, this ship looks like it was going to Siam. There are a lot of 'Chinks'
getting on.'i' Cn their way to the hold of the ship they passed the fellow who
seemed to be the captain of the ship. As they passed by the short one nudged the
tall one, saying, 4'Humy, that guy looks familiar." "Oh! we'll have plenty of
time to look him up, let's get to our cabin." fthe holdj.
"Duke, we have been out two days with hard'y anything to eat, let's look up
that guy you said looked familiar." Going on deck, the first man thev ran into
was the captain, who recognized them first fhow could he help it?j i
"Almy!,' said Duke and Humy in one breath, "you look like an angel, we
are nearly starved." "VVell, of all the people I ever expected to see here, Duke
Parry and Humidor W'herly, you are the lastf'
The first question asked when they had finished eating was, "How many of
our old classmates have you seen ?" 'fYou all tell me your story, and then I will
tell you mine." '
'WVell, Almy, to begin with, I met Humy on a poor man's pullman, and we
have been together ever since. VV e have been all over, and have met a good many
of our old classmates. I went in a pawnshop in Youngstown to pawn my ring,
and found Pinky Feldman running it. He gave me a pretty good price on my
ring for old times' sake. McClure is president of a large moving picture cor-
poration out in California. He was starring Knickerbocker with Mary Pickfordis
"Nelson and VVright, I., you know the one that used to be Sergeant-Major,
were working in Universal City, and it seemed to me like they were having a
pretty close race for the hand of Theda Bara's niece. Coldren is in some little
town out in Arizona. He married the school teacher, and took her place. Tullidge
lives with Sam, and teaches the school when Sam is sick.
"Duke, don't you remember that quack doctor that patched us up after we
had that little argument out in Colorado? You know him, what was his name?
Ch! yes, you mean Smyser, the hospital corporal back at S. M. A. And Duke,
doyou forget that frightful night when we thought we were going to the
realms of Neptune? p
"Oh! yes, listen, Almy, we went to sleep on an old raft which was drawn up
on the bank of the Rio Grande out in Texas. We woke up some time in the
night and found ourselves floating down the river. We were on that raft a day
and night, the only things we saw were cactuses and sand on both sides. We
finally came in sight of a town which we later found out to be Eagle Pass, but
we were in the middle of the river and no way of stopping. Humy let out a
war-whoop, but no one came to our rescue. VVe didn't even see anybody, you
know how those Texas towns are. We had floated by about a half a mile when
we met a little motor-boat coming up the river. Humy let out another war-
whoop, and it drew alongside. VVho was running it but Alex Brantley, you re-
member old Hieme. He sure did look old and wrinkled, but no wonder, from the
business he was in. He was in partnership with jimmy Moore, who was running
a public dance hall, and besides that, he was smuggling liquor from Mexico. He
said there was good money in it, and wanted Humy and me to go in with him,
but we didn't want to run the risk of getting caught. He said there wasn't a
chance of that, as jim Bolton, who was running a bull fighting school in Mexico,
handled the liquor in Mexico, and Moore in Texas. All he had to do was to run
the boat and collect the profits.
"VVe had a peach of a time in Eagle Pass with Jimmy, Alex, -and VVormser,
who was running the Wormser School of Saxaphone Sharks, and playing in
Moore's dance hall. We were going down in Mexico to see old Tim Bolton,
who was pulling off a big Bull Throwing contest on the Fourth of July, but
two of the cylinders in the engine of Hieme's boat were missing, and he couldn't
find them. I
"We were heading for New York from Eagle Pass, and on our way passed
through Scurvy City, Oklahoma. As we were walking up the street we passed
a prosperous looking office building. Looking up I saw in one of the second floor
taccidentally the top fioorj windows Dr. F. R. Tilden, Specialist in Physical
Deformities. Feet a Specialty. We went up to his office, but he was out, and as
the local freight was coming through, we left.
"As the freight drew through Sleepy Creek, Arkansas, we saw on the largest
building in town, 'O. VV. McClintock, Furniture Manufacturer. Small Sofas
"Almy, we stopped in St. Louis some time, and while there met quite a few of
the old boys. There was Russell, a big Bevo manufacturer, Persons principal of
one of the big high schools, Clemmons bell hop in the American Hotel, of which L.
L. Lucas is proprietor, QI. W. Gordon big manufacturer of the famous Gordon
dried peaches. A
"We went up to the Y. M. C. A. to bunk for the night and found Wlilliams
the secretary. Talking to him was a big cop who introduced himself as Budgie
Morris. Lord knows we would never have recognized him, he looked like a
beef trust. A
"Morris persuaded us not to go to bed, but to go to a show with him. XVe
went to a cabaret after the show, and there we saw Stevens, who was dancing
there that week, and Garnett was playing the piano for him.
"We bummed from St. Louis to Pottsville, Pa., without seeing any one we
knew. We were kicked off the train at Pottsville,'and the only place we could
find to sleep was a shaft in a mine. In the morning a big miner grabbed each of
us by the neck and started to throw us out, when Humy recognized him as old
"We stayed with Gutwald a few days, and one day while there we were sur-
prised on seeing Gene Flannery who, with his wife, a- former Cleveland girl, were
looking at some mining properties. Gene told us about a few of the old boys.
"He said Auchmuty was a preacher and had married him. Then, there was
Farley, who was running a pool hall in Pittsburg. Gene's favorite barber shop
was owned by Rainey, and De Weese was the head barber. Logan Berry was
running a manicuring shop in Jacksonville, Fla. Gene had seen him while down
there one winter. He told us there was a bunch of the boys in Washington, and
loaned us some money to get there. So Humy and I rode a real Pullman for the
first time in twenty years.
"Arriving at Washington, we headed straight for Congress Building, expect-
ing, of course, to find a bunch of the boys there. The first man we met was
Donald Little, who was holding down the job of chief janitor, expecting to be
advanced to the position of doorman for long and faithful service. He told us
Hodges, Snyder, and Porter were representatives, and Hawley was senator from
"Richardson was running a large butcher shop supplying the White House
with meat. We stopped in to see him, and he induced us to go to a big billiard
contest for the world championship between our old friend, Mee, the American
Champion and the English Champion.
"Humy wanted to go to New York, so we caught a side door pullman and
started. We arrived late in the evening, and the hrst thing we thought of was a
place to sleep and something to eat. Walking along the street, forlorn and hope-
less, we saw a restaurant with K. K. Kimbro. Going in we saw our old friend
Kimbro, who gave us a good meal.
"After that meal we thought we ought to see a little of the town. We had not
gone far when we were hailed by a taxi driver. As he pulled up to the curb we
recognized him as our old friend Newman. He said he was his own boss, and
was going to show us a good time, so we piled in. First, he took us to see a
boxing match between Red Hill, the K. O. Kidd, and the Australian Champion.
After the fight, which lasted only two rounds, in which time Cliff knocked the
Australian champion out, we went down to see Cliff. He was so glad to see us he
very nearly broke Humy in two. , ' .
"Cliff said he knew where there was a peach of a cabaret run by two of our
old friends. So we went out, and who was running it but Jap Walsh and Alex
Hunt. We had some time, and on our way out to Cliff's apartment, where we
stayed all night, he told us about Bill Monroe, who was the Head of Mathematics
in the University of New York, and Joe Kearns, who was a cartoonist for the
New York World. He also told us something we were very sorry to hear.
Miller and Russ were in Sing Sing for trying to corner the wheat market. They
received good treatment, though, as Thurston was warden.
"Almy, that is about all of the fellows that we have seen that I can think of,
tell us your story now." V
"Boys, I haven't seen very many of our old classmates, as I have been sailing
the seas most of the time since I left S. M. A. However, I will tell you about
those I have seen. There is Cloward, who graduated as senior captain at West
Point a few years ago.
"Then there is one of the most .successful firms in New York. It is made
up of Young, W., Lyons, and Curry. Young is a lawyer, and digs up the cases.
Lyons is a doctor, and kills them, while Curry is an undertaker, and buries them.
Boys, those are the only ones I have seen in my wanderings on land and seaf'
After very nearly three weeks of hard passage the ship arrived at Pekin
and Duke and I-Iumy left Almy with many thanks for the voyage.
"Duke, what are we going to do among these Chinks,. anyway? XVe don't
know anyone here." "I don't know about that 3 who is that little dried up guy
in that jinrikisha? Duke, he does look familiar. Say, it's Max Pereguin. Hello!
Perg." "VVell, if it isn't old 'Parry and VVherly. I would hardly know you. Come
home with me, and we will talk over old times. VVhat are you bums doing over
here, anyway, if I 1nay ask PM "Oh ! We started to Sia1n to see the Prince, but the
boat we got on came here, so we came 'with it. You know the ticket agent in
America sold us the wrong tickets." "Yes, I know all about those tickets, boys.
Hey! Eddie, drive on., .
'Tell me your stories before we do anything else." At which suggestion Duke
told him what he had told Almy on the voyage. I
"Well, boys, to start with, I couldnlt make enough money in America, so I
decided to come to China and smuggle opium. Sparks, who is a missionary, told
me there was good money in it. I am shipping to Jed Clark, who is situated in
San Francisco, and am about ready to go back to the U. S., as I have cleaned up a
fortune. How about going back with me, boys, to see the old school once more,
and believe me, we will ride Hrst class, because I haven't been living among the
Chinks for nothing. I-Iumy,' we have been all over the world. Let's go back to
Virginia now."' , '
4. "About six weeks from the time Duke and I-Iumy arrived in China they were
riding a C. 81 O. Pullman with Perg headed for Staunton. Wfhen they were some-
where near Natural Bridge, which is near Staunton, so the "good book" says
Cabout ninety milesj, they passed alwest-bound train. As they flashed Cthat's
the way the C. 81 O. goesil by, Humy thought he recognized somebody in it. "Oh,
go on Humy, you can't see through one of these windows, you are used to the
windows of a side door pullman, and you can't teach an old dog new tricks."
"All right, have your way, Duke. I am going to sleep, wake me up when we get
to Staunton." x ,
"All off for Staunton. Say Max, this isn't Staunton, is it? Look at that
station, it looks more like Richmond to me. There is Phil Enslow sitting back
in that big carl just like I would if I owned S. M. A."
Getting in the car with Phil they were driven through town. which wasn't
the same town to them. It had doubled in size, and the old buildings had changed.
Where Main street used to be, was now the lower part of town, and there was a
pool hall where Hogshead's used to be. Arriving on the hill they were surprised
to see big buildings scattered all around. They learned that the old barracks was
used as a wing for the little kids.
The first thing Phil said when they asked about old classmates was, that
Willie Robinson had just left that morning for Arkansas. He had just finished,
and it was February, 1935. "There, Duke, I told you I recognized that guy at
Natural Bridge. It was Willie Robinson going home." Phil showed us one
of the uniform caps, and instead of William C. Rowland, of former days, we
saw in big letters, "Ernest Arango, Uniforms, Staunton, Va."
Phil said he knew the whereabouts of nearly all of the old class, as he kept
in touch with all he could, except the wanderers, like Humy and Duke. "Tell me
the names of those you haven't seen or .heard of, and I will see if I know anything
about them. Barrier is running a hotel in Denver. Shorty Stallings married a
Staunton girl, here, now, I saw him just before your train came in. Stoutz is
head of the junior department here, and is one of my best teachers. .
"Percy jenkins bought Major Roller out, and is running a school for the
feeble minded. I think Percy used good judgment when he bought A. M. A.,
Phil, because it has quite a reputation among feeble minded people, and then it
is a good location for' anything of that sort. I wouldn't be surprised if you were
not right, Duke, because Percy has a good patronage. Turner and Wilson are
teaching for Percy, and are both married, poor fellows. Garrott owned a to-
bacco factory in Newark, the last I heard of him. Cartwright is manufacturing
that famous Cartwright Crystal Cheese, in Charlottesville. Simonds is a wan-
dering book agent, and passed through here onceg'that is the last I have heard of
him. Tuxworth is a lawyer somewhere in California, I don't know just where.
Conway taught physics here' for two years, then he taught at the jenkins School
for the Feeble Minded for a while. I don't know just where he is now. Day is
the night watchman at M. B. S. It looks as though he just couldn't stay away,
so he got a job there. He is old, but he has young ideas. We will drop down
and see him after dinner. I couldn't get track of Frazer until just recently. I got
a letter from King, R., who is 'running a pool hall in Cleveland. King said
Frazer drifted in one day broke and wanted money enough to start him off as a
preacher. King loaned it to him, and now Frazer is one of the foremost minis-
ters of the city. Dunn was here in September, and put one of his sons in school.
He owns a farm in Haymarket, Va., and is doing fine." -
"Humy, let's you and Perg.and I settle down here in Staunton. We can ,see
most of our old pals again here. They all leave and wander around the world,
but finally when they grow old and wise, they come back to Virginia, and old
S. M. A." '
NVhen our last parade is over
And our guns are all away
Let,s think of the ones before us
Who've left us many a day.
Years they spent behind these walls,
Parading, drilling, studying,
To learn the future of their might
And guide the true in paths of right.
At last we are able to acclaim
After parading, drilling, studying,
That four years were not spent in vain
But to make us men of a higher plane.
Let's uncover, for Staunton we've outgrown.
Our work in this world is yet undone,
For '19 reveille has just blown.
Gur day has barely begun.
Old Staunton, whose deeds we love to tell,
VVe may damn her, yet we loved her,
Though we cursed her, none's above her,
Old Staunton, the school we loved so- well

,. f, I-IE long voyage was nearly over, the Statue of Liberty could
be seen in the distance holding out a welcoming hand to the
several thousand boys crowded on the transport. All were
eagerly looking forward towards the land-the land of the good
old U. S., their own dear country. For a year, two, three, and
'ggi xiii? 5 to some, for four years they had not seen their native country.
Some of them were on crutches, some in wheel chairs, and many with arms in
slings-but were they discouraged or sad? Not they. They had given a lot for
their country but there wasn't one that wouldn't have given his all, and been glad
to do it. Now they were nearing their journey's end, to be met by proud mothers,
fathers, wives, and sweethearts. A
But Dick Harvey was not filled with the home coming spirit as the others.
though of course, he was glad to be getting back on his native soil. For just
before leaving La Belle France, he had received a cablegram informing him of
the death of his father. As he confided to a Ubuddiel' of his, "Good old Dad.
I'd been looking forward to seeing him again ever since I went to France, and
now I have nobody-no real folks-my mother died when I was a youngster.
Dad meant to me more than most Dads do to a fellow, possibly for the reason
that we were real pals.
"I was engaged to a wonderful girl, and as soon as I finished college, we
expected to be married-but not since the time I was transferred from the French
army to my own Uncle Sam's army, have I had a word from her. I guess some-
thing has happened to her. I met a fellow in Amiens that heard that she was
married. So you can understand why I'm not especially crazy about getting
home-for I have no home. Cf course, I have a big house and all that, but
home to me, means someone who cares, not just a house and such, alone. And
I can't do any work for at least two years, so the doctors say, on account of my
lungs, which were badly affected by gas the night I was captured by the Huns
and, well, the German prison food isn't of the best. But we licked those hounds.
didn't we ?"
With these last words, Dick tried to smile, but there wasn't much happiness
for him at the present to make him look very cheerful. Xvhere was he 0'oin0'
when he got ashore? That was the question. He would have to go see his
fathers lawyers and get the estate settled, of course. But what then? He
didnt want to go there in his old home and live alone, when there would be
nothmg but 1T1CmO1'1v6S for company. Nor did he want to go live at his club.
Ile wanted to go where he could have some real friends. He thought-"I'll go
back to old S. M. A. where I have friends, and stay there until I get used to
the idea of being alone in the world." ,
For eight years Dick had been a cadet at S. M. A., and he had come to be
thought a great deal of by the fellows and the faculty. He was only ten or
eleven, when he first entered there, and he had grown up with the school. And,
when he had graduated, the Colonel had said with tears in his eyes, and in a
husky voice: "Dick, we are proud of you here at old S. M. A., and to me you
are almost a son. I've watched you develop, and each step that you have taken
has been as I would like a son of mine to take. You have gotten into mischief
more or less here, but a good red-blooded boy as you, one doesn't expect to be
perfect all the time. If you ever need a friend, please consider me that, and call on
me-and do your best, son, in whatever you take up.',
And now, at last the time had come when he needed a friend-a real friend,
and those last words came to l1is mind. "That,s where I'm going," he said,
thinking out loud.
"Where are you going, Dick," said a small young fellow, apparently of
"Hello, Tony," said Dick. HI didn't know I was thinking out loud. I'm
going back to the school where I spent a great part of eight years-but just to
recuperate-not to study."
"Aw, Dick, I thought I could see you once in a while, for you know, Mr.
Dick. I like you a lots, but if you go a very long ways off, I maybe can't do." 1
"Tony, you must come to see me, and I believe you, when you say you like
me, Tony, for we have been buddies side by side for two years, haven't we, and
Tony, I think you are one of the few real friends I've got and I sure think a lot
of you. Wliat are you going to do when you get back home P"
"Me P-I'm going to shina the shoe like I used to do."
The statute of Liberty was passed and up into the harbor the transport
sped, amid the deafening screech of welcoming whistles and lusty cheers from
crowds on passing ships. But as all trips end, this trip was finally over. Such
a welcome-the dock was just a human mass of relatives of the arriving boys.
But out of that huge mass, not a one was there to meet Dick Harvey and Dick
knew it and held back while the others left the great ship. Qnly a few days
more and he would again be just a plain citizen of the United States. That
would be, just as quickly as the discharges could be made out. But then the
memorv of the old school and of the friends there, came to him and he straightf
ened up Hom well, ies all in 3 lifetimef, he thought.
Several days later he was speeding towards Virginia, sunny Virginia, where
so many happy days had been spent. But before leaving for there he had tried
to find out what had become of Dorothy Vtfebster, his fiancee, but not a trace of
her was found. No one knew where she was, the neighbors told Dick that the
Websters had moved, several years before, but they knew not where.
It seemed like a real home coming to Dick when he arrived in Staunton for
there was the Colonel, and the Headmaster waiting with hearty greetings for
"Dick, I certainly am glad to see you again, old scout, and I am mighty
proud of you. And to think that you thought of the old school and of me in
your time of home coming and are to make this your home for a time."
"Well, Colonel," he replied, "you know this place is just like a second home
to me and-well, I guess I sort of think of you as a second father too. You
are always so interested in the doings of 'your boys' as you call them, that they
all have a great respect and liking for you."
Even though there were only a few fellows in the school that Dick had known.
and they had been little fellows when he had left, six years before. he found
plenty to do, watching the cadets drill and watching them at their play. And then
too, he took hikes into the country to the haunts of his boyhood, renewing happy
It was on one of these rambles that he was caught in the rain and developed
a cold, which was soon followed by pneumonia. Day after day he lay between
life and death. Due to the weakened lungs, caused by being gassed. the doctors
gave up hope. Every day the Colonel came into the infirmary to try to cheer
Dick up, but each day he became lower. "There is only one hope for him." said
the Doctor one day. "I-Ie seems to be worrying about someone named Dorothy.
Last night Miss Walton, the night nurse, said he kept calling for Dorothy. And
when she asked who Dorothy was, he said 'Tony knows. I told him one night'
VVhether it is the fever that makes him say such strange things or not. I don't
know." "Great Day!" exclaimed the Colonel, "I believe he did say something
about a trench mate of his named Tony. Let's see if we can't lind this Tony's
address somewhere. Possibly we can find out then where this Dorothy is, and
who she is."
So a search was made among Dick's papers, and at last came to light the
hastily scribbled address: "Tony Angelo Arrigoni, New Stl-Qgt S1109 Shine
Parlor, Broadway, New York." Immediately, a wire was on its way to Tony with
the instructions to find the girl and bring her to Staunton immediately.. In a
short time a telegram came, saying: I
CK ' - - .
Am O1'1 my way with the girl. Will arrive, maybe, tomorrow on C. 'X O. Tony."
That night Dick grew worse and continually called "Dorothy! Dorothy l"
and then as if he realized his calling was of no use, he would relax and sort of
give up hope. As soon as Tony's answer came the Colonel went to the infirmary
and said to Dick:
"Listen, Son, cheer up and hold on a bit longer. Dorothy is coming. She
will be here tomorrow. Steady, Son. just make up your mind you are going to
get well. just grit your teeth and try to pull through. Hold on, boy, for life is
All that night the Colonel sat by Dick's bedside, holding his hand and en-
couraging him not to give up his light.
The next day dawned bright and clear, and the birds were singing away
in the nearby trees-for it was spring. Dick seemed to pick up a little for he
"Say, Colonel, were you telling me the truth about Dorothyis coming or were
you just kidding me. And then Call of a suddenj what is she coming for. She is
married, so Iiheard. She doesni't care anything for me."
VV ith this Dick seemed to be fast slipping Qand then up drove a carj.
"Hey, where's Mr. Dick. Wl1at's wrong with him. l'm here and I've got
the girl n'everything."
"Sh-h," said the nurse, "come this way."
As they entered the room Dick didn't move. For him, all interest in life
seemed to be gone. As the "girl" came in the Colonel thought he had never seen
anyone more wonderful than she.
Upon the sight of Dick, she rushed to his side.
"Dick 1" He opened his Cyes.
"Dorothyl Oh, I wanted you so much, you have come. But aren't you
"'Qf course not, you silly boy."
"And do you still love me ?" p
"Yes.,' , A ,
And then he dropped off into a sound peaceful sleep. She was his and there
was something to live for. Life wasn't so bad after all. V
That night as Dorothy and Tony were talking with the Colonel, Tony said
something about the Legion of Honor of Dickfs.
I didn't know an thing about that " said the Colonel "In fact Dick
Kgtwhya y . f' '
hasnit said much about any of his experiences. He,isn't one who talks much about
what he does. Tell us about it, Tony ?"'
So Tony went on to tell how Dick had gone out in the midst of a heavy shell
fire and brought in a wounded man, and how Dick had been seriously wounded
H-ff-refs-:::f':-ir' p:.:f....ga.. .k -cf-L, -L , -,L 1 -1 - '. Aging- wif f .'
in doing it, but after a few months in the hospital he had returned to the front.
Tonv told this tale and many others, showing the fighting spirit of Dick and one
could well see that he was an ideal to little Tony-for as Tony said, "Me just a
bootblack, and he a very rich man, but .he say to me 'we are both Americans,
Tony, and we are pals, aren't we.' I'm awful proud of Mr. Dick." D
As time passed on Dick kept improving and finally the doctor gave permis-
sion for him to be moved out in the sun parlor, and from here he could watch
the boys drilling and their evening parades. And every day Dorothy was with
him and he was as happy as could be.
One day he asked her: "NVhy did you stop writing me, Dorothy ?"
"I did write you until word came that you were missing and then you were
reported killed in action. And I didn't get any letters from you. Then your
father died, and shortly after I saw where it was reported that you were in a
German prison camp and not killed. And then I wrote you, but I never received
"I-Iuh, I'll bet those low down I-Iuns never sent my letters and they probably
tore up yours to me. And I thought all the time that you were married. Gee,
Ch, I,1'1'1 just so glad you aren't."
"And how did Tony find you?"
"He didn't exactly, I found him. I inquired as soon as I heard your regi-
ment had landed, for you, but you had been discharged, but one of the boys said
that perhaps Tony Arrigoni might know where you were and gave me his address.
And then I lost the address, but I knew it was a shoe shine parlor somewhere,
near Forty-second Street on Broadway. I went in all I could locate around that
district, but I believe every one has a Tony in it-but I couldn't find the right
Tony-then just the day before the Colonel sent for me I went into the right
one. I asked for Tony, and up looked 'our Tony.' Before I could say a word.
he said, 'Aren't.you Miss VVebster?'
f'Upon admitting the fact, he said, 'I knew it. For Mr. Dick, he say, to me
one night, she the most wonderful girl in the world, has great big blue eyes and
her hair, Tony, it is so nice and it is bobbed and it looks verv keen. She isn't tall,
Tony, he say, nor short, just medium. just the very nicest girl ever. I remember
all he say, and when I see you I know it's you all over.' Tony told me as much
as he knew about you-and then I left Tony my address. I wrote to you that
night but before I had mailed your letter the next day, Tony came for me and
said, 'VVe are goinguto Virginia to see Mr. Dick. Isle very sick and want vou.'
So I came along. And Dick, I'm just so glad that you are getting all well again."
April, with its beautiful spring days, rolled by, and then came the marvelous
month of May and with it, health for Dick. For the Doctor allowed him to get
up and Walk about a little. The boys went to Camp and then returned for finals.
The sun in the west was shining brightly upon the six hundred youths upon
the parade ground. The brass buttons of their dress uniforms sparkled and the
drawn sabers of the commissioned officers reflected the rays of the sun. All were
happy for it was the final parade of the year. Dorothy and Dick stood among
the throng of spectators Watching the impressive sight. Every movement was
perfectly executed and indicated careful training. To both of them it brought
back happy memories-for, once before, they had both been here at finals-only
then Dick had been down on the field and Dorothy had watched him with pride

And youth returns once more.
My mind reverts in fancy
To the school and the square,
Wlieii months and years sped quickly by
With friends we loved so dear.
In the class room, on the campus,
My past I live anew,
Theclouds are driven from my sight
And the skies once more are blue.
Then I think of the day that gave it
Like a gift, to me divine-
The emblem of our school days,
That old class ring of mine.
I-Iow I find my thoughts are wandering
In a feeble, broken train!
IVhat means all this idle dreaming?
Youth and joy come not again.
The school and the grounds remain
As in days of long ago,
But the band of students scattered now

I miss you pal, and the nights are long,
Long and dark and still,
I miss the smile and I miss the song,
That brought the old time thrill,
And out of the night I hear you cry,
And the cry rings loud and true,
For you seem to say the same as I,

ourselves to drop into a state of pitiable defenselessness, where we were unable
to either properly defend our own

' The statesmen of the world are now engaged in the effort to formulate a
covenant, establishing a League of Nations, to the end that war may be decreased.
I have heard of no one who believes that it can be entirely extirpated. It would
seem unwise to depend entirely upon the efficiency of such a league.
Many of the ablest public men, including Mr. Kahn, the chairman of the
House Military Affairs Committee, advocate some form of universal military
training, and it will undoubtedly be urged in some form or another.
Before the war, many of our coll 0
eges and other institutions of learning,
maintained units of the R. O. T. C. ' " -
, oiganized undei General Qrder 49, lYar De-
partment, June, 1916. This was primarily for the purpose of furnishing a '
reservoir for Reserve Gfhcers for our enlarged armies. They were functioning
and increasing in number and importance when we joined in the Great XYar, and
shortly afterward adopted the Selective D1 ft I
'a saw. This latter, naturally, threat-
ened the institutions of collegiate rank with tl '
S ie necessity of suspending operations
during the war, especially when the draft age was lowered to eighteen years.
It would have taken all the male students, except the physically unfit, unless some
arrangement could be made with the Government retaining them at the schools
during a part of their service, and enabling them to train while so retained. .-Xt
best, the course of study must be shortened and l
C a tered. Thse conditions gave
rise to the organization of the Students Arm T- ' ' - i' - '
y .iaming Qoips in the summer of
1918. Units were formed at nearly all of the colleges, and students inducted into
the service to the number of 160,000. They were really soldiers, actually in the
service, and under the command of officers of the Army detailed for that pur-
pose. They drew regular pay, and the Government besides, paid the institution
for their tuition and keep. . -
The system was in operation such a short time, that it is impossible to say
whether it would have proved a success or not. It seems doubtful if the in-
tensive training required under the circumstances could have been obtained, atthe
same time the student was pursuing his ordinary studies. It would have been
impossible to spare the number of experienced officers required to standardize the
training at so many institutions to produce officer material in so short atime. It
had been found necessary to reduce the number of Qfficers Training Schools to
only four for this very reason. It would have served as a system of depots of re-
cruits awaiting assignnient, in the meantime receiving military instruction.
After the signing of the armistice, the Committee on Education and Special
Training of the War Department was greatly enlarged, and it took the necessary
steps to re-establish the units of the R. O. T. C. when the members of the S. A.
T. C. were discharged, besides instituting many new units.
The whole subject is receiving much more attention, and assuming an im-
portance not formerly allowed to it. A
At this Academy, as there was no S. A. T. C. Unit organized, the R. O. T. C.
was continued during all this time. This was rendered possible on account of the
average age of the student, as well as the privilege granted by the War Depart-
ment of sending capable candidates directly to the Officers Training Schools as
their induction into the service by draft approached.
Under the stimulus of the war, very naturally, all things military received
more attention than ever. Since the armistice, however, the reaction is evident
here as elsewhere. - I
The purely military schools and colleges are not affected in the same way as
the civil institutions. The military is ia part of their very life 5 it is the keystone
of the arch upon which they rest, has been from the beginning and will so con-
tinue., . '
The authorities of some of our greatest institutions-Coluinbia, Princeton,
Yale, and Harvard-have seen certain benefits inherent in the military system as
applied to educational matters, and are enthusiastic now, 'where before the trial,
they were lukewarm.
Quoting from a paper by a prominent educator, President Charles W. Dab-
ney, University of Cincinnati: .
I am strongly in favor of military training for young men, ,not only as a means o

national defense, but as valuable method of physical and intellectual training. There is
nothing like it to make a healthy man and an efficient citizen. The American youth has
been allowed to go loose too long. They need to be taught obedience of the law and dis-
cipline in conduct and Work.
From Dr. C. R. Mann:
The recent experiences with this training on a national scale, have opened the eyes of
educators to its marvelous power in developing fine set-up, co-ordination of will, "pep,"
promptness, alertness, and manliness. if Dk if Bl' 'lf if 4'
It is conceivable that there are many other forms of training that would be as effective
as the military for developing men, and some of these methods have been applied in indivi-
dual cases and on a small scale. All must agree, however, that no method that is at all com-
parable with the military system has yet been found to accomplish these results quickly and
universally. tk "1 ft "4 if X X
It is one of the chief functions of the R. O. T. C. to discover by experiment the ways
and means by which the best elements of both types of training may be combined in an edu-
cational system that is both disciplinary and liberal.
The authorities of the Staunton Military Academy have always stressed the
importance ofthe military feature, not especially to recruit the ranks of our na-
tional fighting forces, but to prepare the young men passing through its halls for
ALL of the battles of life. That it has been successful in the first as well as the
latter, a glance at its service Hag will show-435 stars known to belong there,

accomplished both for the recipient of the training and for the country at large.

this year, considering the many difficulties under which it has
W labored. The long quarantine made it impossible for the Social
Club to give the usual Thanksgiving and Hallowe'en dances.
lf! The only formal, so far this year, was the Christmas Hop.
A E Many informals were also given up, but in spite of all this the
corps has spent a most enjoyable year, and does not feel as though the social life
Qias been less brilliant than of previous years.
The Social Club is a very capable one this year, with unusually good taste
to music and decorations, and all dances have been successful in every way.
Wliile they have not been able to give as many affairs as heretofore, they have
given several that have made up for the loss in number by their high quality.
The music for most of the informals was furnished by our school jazz
orchestra, which is composed of cadets only, and is indeed good.
Mrs. S. D. Timberlake, who has always been one of S. M. A.'s most loyal
friends, has given several enjoyable evening dances at her home on North
Coalter Street. The cadets are always delighted to attend these entertainments,
and it is needless to say that they have enjoyed every minute of the time they
have spent in the warmth of Mrs. Timberlake's hospitality. C
THE Y. M. C. A. SOCIAL
Surprise gave way to delight when it was announced that the HY" would
hold a social. The main object of this affair was to enable the old and new boys
to get acquainted. Capt. Chandler started the ball rolling with an address to the
cadets, both old and new. This was followed by school yells and the singing of
the "Blue and Goldf' Refreshments were served, and dancing followed.
This is the first time the "Y" has stepped into the social whirl. but eyery one
present voted the first step far too good for them to stop.
Une of the hrst dances of the year was given by Mrs. Kable, for the cadets.
It was held in the school gym, and a cordial invitation was issued to all cadets.

On Saturday night, january 18th, Mr. Thomas Hogshead gave an informal
dance at the Virginia Hotel. The hall was beautifully decorated with the
school colors, and the lights were dimmed with blue and gold tints. Delightful
refreshments were served during intermission. Everybody was in the best of
spirits, and was made even gayer by Mr. 'lrlogshead"s hearty welcome. lt is
needless to say, every one feels deeply indebted to this loyal frieiid of S. M. .-X. for
this long-to-be-remembered evening. i

The Social Club gave the annual Christmas formal on the sixth of' Decem-
ber, in the school Mess Hall, which was very elaborately decorated with red and
green colors, evidencing the coming holiday season.
The orchestra, which was in the center of the hall, was surrounded by palms
in a most attractive way, while in one corner was a booth of green and red ma-
terial which served as an ideal refreshment stand.
The holiday spirit was in evidence everywhere, and this did much to make the
dance peppy and joyful.

The most elaborate dance of the season was given December 12, 1918, at the
Virginia Hotel, by the Academy Exeter and Arbor Vitae Clubs. The hall was
beautifully decorated with the school and club colors, while a bewitching "moon"
shown down on the gay scene, and furnished light for many no-break waltzes.
The music was furnished by "Smith's Famous Saxaphone Sextette," of
Lexington, Ky. This is the first appearance of this orchestra in this part of
the country, but it is hoped by all who attended this dance that it will not be the

vd,3,i4t3f,a v ELL, it sure was some team! They had the "stuff" in them, and
they showed it, they cleaned up everything, a true champion-
'1 ship team.
LQ J ' Q But it was not all sunshine, for at the beginning of the
season, the outcome of the team was very doubtful. There were
Ts' X56 only three old Hletter men" back, and 'most of the material the
coaches had to work on had little or no experience on the gridiron. But that is
where the coaches proved their worth, for they turned out an A-No. 1 team-the
Champions of the State! I
The Hrst game of the season was one that the team and the coaches were
just the least bit afraid of, it was with the Virginia, Military Institute at Lexing-
ton. This was the first time that the two teams had ever met, and the outcome
between the college and the "prep" was the least bit doubtful. But that doubt
did not last at all, after the first few minutes of play. S. M. A. was not only
holding her own, but was by far out-playing,V.rM. I. Slowly but steadily the
ball went over for the first touchdown, and then the real fight was on. V. M. T.
couldn't possibly hold them back, and over went the ball for two more scores. The
result was a 20 to O victory for S. M. A. and a bitter blow to V. M. I.
The next week old S. M. A. did not tackle a college, it "took on" a University
-NVashington and Lee. And the score? Wfell, it was the same thing over againg
another 20 to O victory for the Blue and Gold. And had the game not been played
on a muddy, rain-soaked held, the score would probably have-been larger, for in
spite of the slippery condition of the ground, the backs did some wonderful work,
as shown by the "prep" school's score against a University with such an athletic
record as Vlfashington and Lee.
The next two games proved to be merely practise games for Coach Tarr's
team, for he used fully three teams in both games. The 635th Aero Squadron
from Richmond went down to the tune of 69 to 6. and the U. S.,Marines. from
Quantico were easily humbled by a score of 55 to O.
Then the long-looked-for day arrived, November the 18th. The old bitter
rivals met-S. M. A. and A. M. A. That day will never be forgotten, it was a
day of days. Smarting under the defeat of last year, Captain Rushing and his
team went on the field determined to do or die. And S. M. A. did the "doing,"
while A. M. A. did the "dying," '
The first half ended with the score 6 to 6, both teams having made a touch-
flown, but failing on the kick. S. M. A.'s score was made by hard, straight foot-
ball 3 A. M. A. made its six points by a blocked kick.
During the intermission, Coaches Tarr and Manning gave the boys a talk. the
result of which was shown in the second half. The team went out, and such light-
ing spirit was never before seen on liable Field. Rollers was out-played in every
angle of the game, three touchdowns were made in this half, bringing the hnal
score to Z7-6. Rollers found that they could make no gains by rushes or end runs,
so resorted to forward passing, but this failed, too, for S. Rl. .Xfs secondary de-
fense had been too well drilled in this style of game, and as a result, only two for-
ward passes were completed by the Augusta team during the whole game.
The last game of the season was just like the others, a complete walk-away
for the Kable boys, the hnal score being, ll. A. 69, liishburne O. Throughout
the whole game the Blue and Gold line was never once in danger, and li. M. S.
received the worst beating in its history.
But then, all the credit cannot be given to the team, for the "Faithful Scrubs"
must be remembered, too. It was they who fought against the Yarsity. day after
day, and gave them the practise which did so much towards producing the Cham-
pionship Team of the State.
At tackle, Captain Rushing is admitted the best in the state. Hill made the
best possible leader for his men, always encouraging them on. and at the same
time fighting hard himself. Very few, if any gains were ever made through his
Flannery, playing the other tackle, made a lit running mate for Rushing. Ile
fought his hardest at all times, and never knew when to quit.
At center Bentz, who was elected captain for next year, was a bulwark of
strength. His passing was most accurate, and his work on defense was first-
At the guard positions, the two "old reliablesf' llridges and Townsend, could
always be counted on. Both these men' had little or no football experience, but
they proved to be towers of strength in their positions.
Granger and Chambers, our ends, played very good games at their positions
on the line. This was Granger's first year of football, but in spite of this, he
played an exceptionally good game. Chambers proved to be one of the gamest
men on the team, besides showing up very well at right end.
The other line men, Tilden, XYilson, Garnett, and lloyt, proved equal to
theoccasion when called upon to take their positions on the line.
In the back field, Lyons at quarter, was a valuable man. lle used his head
on all the plays, and was exceptionally good on returning long kicks and punts.
jenkins, one of the halves. could do everything that a fine football plaver can
do. Wlieii given the ball, he could line buck or end run, and his work in the use
of the stiff-arm and zig-zag running was a moral.
Houser, the other half, was a wonler. Give him the ball and the gain was
sure. He was fast as you make them, with great power to back it, and the hardest
man on the held to tackle.
Hill, who switched from guard to full back, was a virtual "battering-ramf'
He could just not be stopped, and made touchdown after touchdown for the
Blue and Gold. '
Stallings, Norwine, Sparks, and Hunt could make any average "prep" school
backfield. Time and again they were used in games, and always met the expecta-
tions of the coaches.
At a meeting of the football men, lettered and numeraled sweaters were
awarded to nineteen men, fifteen of these receiving the letters, and Tilden, Nor-
wine, Wilson, and Garnett being awarded the sweaters with the numeral 1919.
At this meeting the election of the 1919 captain was also carried out, Bentz, this
year's center, being chosen as next year's leader. The letter men of this year
were also given gold footballs bearing each man's name and the words, "State
Championship, '19." '
The annual banquet given in honor of the team was held at the Virginia
Hotel in one of the private dining rooms. The banquet was the most elaborate
ever given, and everyone enjoyed himself to the fullest extent.

HE Basketball team, on account of its splendid record this vear,
jr' """"'-5455 has clearly won the "Prep" School Championship of Virginia.
The team, under the able leadership of -Captain Brophy, dis-
played a well balanced combination of clever passing, keen de-
fensive playing, and skillful shooting. .
" Ru. .axial , , ,
'M"""""'t"' """A"""""""' Individually the team is no less clever than the team as a
whole. Everyone of the "Varsity" players did his share to make the year a most
successful one. Starting the season under the handicap of having only two veter-
ans on the squad, the coaches developed such team work and fast play that another
Championship is added to the fame of old S. M. A.
The two games with A. M. A. were of course the 'fBig Games" of the season.
The game at home was a walk-over for S. M. A., as evidenced by the fact that
A. M. A. made only two held goals, and the final score being 40-8.
The return game on the A. M. A. floor was more exciting, the score at the
end of forty minutes' play being tied at twenty all. ln the extra period of five
minutes, A. M. A. won the game.
On a floor of regulation size, Rollers would not have had a chance with our
team. Critics and coaches from other schools declared it to be the best "Prep"
School Team they have ever seen. '
We broke even with the University of Virginia "Fresh,', who had a team
that was superior to their Varsity.
It is hard to pick an individual from the S. M. A. Five, for every man con-
tributed something towards the victories, but in Captain Brophy, Jenkins, and
Freitag, you will find three stars of the first magnitude.
Captain Brophy was one of the fastest floor-men and best shots in the
scholastic ranks. He was the high scorer of the season.
Jenkins, his running mate, was one of the best. His ability to pass and fol-
low the ball made him one of the best forwards the school has ever boasted.
Freitag played a sterling game at guard, and made a wonderful record in
holding his opponents to a few goals. He is the best standing guard in the state.
Ingley, playing his Hrst year of 'fprepf' basketball, proved to be one of the
best, and was a wizard in covering the floor, and is a fine shot for the basket.
Houser, the big pivot man, was agreat asset to the Five. Playing his Hrst
year of Basketball, he was the equal of any on the jump.
In the other two letter men, Dillon at Guard and Kivlighan at Forward, were
found very able substitutes. They could have been placed in the game without
materially weakening the team's strength. '
The second team developed some very good men, who ought to make the
team next year. They remained faithful in their work, and won all the games
Dillon, who has been elected captain for 1920, should prove an able leader.
The outlook for next year is Very bright, for the following men are expected
to return: Dillon, Freitag, Ingley, Brophy, Granger, Notman, Schweitzer. llan-
son, Sivalls, Maddox, Jarrett, Wfassman, and others.

T HF. outlook for a Championship Baseball Team is very bright.
I The,l9l8 team was about the best the school ever had, but this
- ,R year si team promises to surpass the record made by that team.
T, Qaptain Freitag, the mainstay behind the bat, is the best
catcheriin the state. He has as a foundation on which to build
... a winning team, several of last year's letter men. Brophy at
third, Houser at second, Reagan at center, and Lyonns in leftiield are the mem-
'Jers of last year's team. jenkins at short stop and lngley at first base seem to
have their places made. In the box, Wferre, Sewell, and Smith are doing great
Werre demonstrated his worth when he held the strong Virginia Freshman
Team to live hits, fanning seventeen men, and winning by a score of 3 to l.
McClure, Moore, Hanson, and Ritter ,are fighting for a place in the infield,
while Tullidge, Bishop, Sivalls, Lawley, Turner, and Mosser are fighting hard
to make the outfield.
Cxwfy x X
It looks like Qld S. M. A. will have its most successful season this year in
Athletics. Having already won the Championship in Football and Basketball,
they are determined 'that they shall win in Baseball, too. Followers of the team
who have watched its play closely, say that no other 'fPrep,' School can compare
with it. .
In the first game of the season, the Miller School was defeated in a six inning
affair, by the score of 24 to 3, two full teams being given a try-out. The second
game with Harrisonburg High School, proved just as easy as the first, the score
at the end of the seventh inning being 7 to 0, the game being called on account of
the cold weather. D
The third game scheduled with the Staunton All-Stars, with Lewllyn pitch-
ing, promised to be a more interesting game, but the heavy hitters of S. M. A. got
busy, and the team easily won. . .
. The team took its first trip, go-ing to Woodstoclcbto play Massanutten Mili-
tary Academy, and brought back a victory to the tune of ll to O. .
In all these games Sewell and VVerre have equally divided the pitching honors.

Lune Letter writing
NE MUST remember this is a subject that is very tickilish to

presses their love for another on paper when it cannot be ex-
pressed verbally. ' D

han' To as most of them do while others tell what comes from their
Now, there are times when girls do the same thing but the fellow has them
all beat for he can put it in a way that the girl generally "falls" for it. There
comes a time in every young man's life when he really believes he is in love, so
if he has to leave his lady friend he at once starts corresponding with her and tells
her all the sweet and loving things he can think of. Now, this is a known fact
for it even happens in the town where they both live. U
For the other side of the story there are many fellows who really don't know
which girls they like the best and they generally tell each one a different story,
but they all get a sweet letter and why should he care, they don't know the
If a girl is very affectionate a fellow should write her and tell her how he
misses her and how lonely he is, even if he is having a gay and glorious time of
it, also life isn't worth living without her, but if she is of an indifferent nature
he should tell her just the opposite, that he is having greater times than he did
when he was with her, so this is the way the course in love letters run and it al-
ways will, with a few exceptions for those who find their TRUE love the first

Staunton's name has added fame
To her record of the past
Wliicli I an1 sure in future years
VVill cause its name to lastg
The barracks of the East 'tis called
By the authorities that rule,
So far it's been a benefit
And a credit to the school.
Its citizens they number
Thirty ten and three,
Wliicli includes rats and old boys
Ask us how we like it
In our oriental home,
And we will simply tell you
That we do not care to roam.
We 1nust confess that once our home
Was for the lame and sick,
But now that we are in it
Like glue we are going to stick.
VVe are represented by commission,
And a score of common rats,
A few all powerful old boys,
And busted aristocrats.
Some of us are brilliant
And a few a little dense,
But all of us are happy
And possessed of common sense.
VVe will say this of these dear barracks
They are as near as near can be
To home, sweet home,
That not till june we will see.

Like the County Courthouse, "My word is supremeng and by the straight
forward discharge of my duty, and the constancy with which I stand 1ny post. I
set an admirable example to the other officers. Day and night, rain and shine,
winter and summer, I am to be seen from any part of the quadrangle. Here, just
to the left of the Sally Port, I give information to Cadets and their friends. You
may think me a gossip but my role is not such. I receive a fresh supply of news
every day and I know that the Cadets are interested, because I oft times have
listeners even during C.
Often I am surrounded by them, and sometimes in grave danger of being
thrown down by them, pushing and crowding to see which one, I wish to repri-
mand. Quite frequently they turn away sadly, but Duty has most appropriately
been called, "The sublimest word in thelinglish language," and I speak only the
words which have been put into my mouth by my daily informer, the Adjutant.
I am sorry when, sometimes, I cause the Cadets to speak disrespectfully in my
presence, but this cannot be helped, and is no fault of mine. There are two of
them coming this way now. i
Good evening, young gentlemen. Yes, I have some news for both of you.
Sam, on guard tomorrow. Gdor of tobacco smoke in room at G. C. I. NYhy do
you not refrain from violating regulations like your chum, Frank? Look at the
smile upon his glowing countenance. You, Frank, two merits. I think this makes
about a dozen I have given you lately. You are almost sure of your sergeancy,
while you, Sam, will be lucky to remain at the Academy.
Vlfelcome, Miss Harris! You want news of your fiance? Yes, I can furnish
you with lots of information about him, probably even more than his parents.
Oh, yes! I-Ie can fill his date with you for tonight. I am glad you have asked me
about him. I seldom have occasion to speak to him, except to serve notification
on him that he must go on guard. Good evening, call again. "Gee, I'm glad
Willie wasn't reported. This is the first time I haven't had his name this weekf'
That little fellow standing in the doorway seems unimpressed with my im-
portance. Apparently he does not know that I am the herald of the S. C. C. 3 that
I am the source of so much joy, hope, sorrow, and amusement to Cadets and their
friends. "Say, youngster, don't you know a Bulletin Board when you see it P"

Qn a very small portion of this world of ours, where the weeds and the
thistles grow up with the flowers, stands a large concrete building on the slope
of a hill. The place where we have worshiped and worked with a will.
Perhaps it would be better for me here to give the names of the faculty
who are with us now live.
Colonel Kable comes first with his soldiery grace, while Col. Thomas the
second. looks up in his face. Col. Ted and Acker come trouping along and
always dismiss by the ring of the gong.
In Military men, our school is immense, and their rooms are blue with the
smoke of incense.
Col. Conklin comes first with his soldiery grace, and Capt. Budgel, who.
recently came to this place, these together with good Sergeant Flynn, are
drilling the boys as only men can.
These are followed by Maj. Wfonson, Steel, and Pitcher, who always know
when they see a good teacher. Closely following Southerland and Sizer, Harri-
son, and Mann, and Porter, who does all the work that he can.
I will now turn to the man of "Letters," to whom many cadets are indeed
great debtors. Maj. Stevens, the wonder in all kinds of "Lit," who can do good
work without talking a bit. Closely related is Lieut. Louthan, whose knowledge
of History is sure unfathomed.
I am now through with the Colonels and Majors, so turn to those who work
for less wages.
Sterrett is fat and Moody is lean, and York is a has-been, as you have all
There is Bear and Vandivere, Manning and Hess, who have caught us again
as you all may guess. These are in league with Kremer and Tarr, and it gives
them pleasure to talk by the hour.
I must now begin to end my story, and tell of de Chaudron and his days of
glory. He and his colleague, Lieut. Deiziel, teaches us languages, we all love

Somewhere in Yirginia,
january 10, 1919.
DEAR MAW: h 1
1 I that 1'm here 1 will rite and tell you how 1 don't like it.
I got iere, so now .
1'1n awful popular-course 1 was at home, but not near so much as 1 am here.
Why, Maw, 1 can't step off fifty feet without somebody hollerin' "l ley. 'Rat' "-
that's what they all call me-"come here." Of course, 1 do as they says, but it's
funny they always want me to do something. They call it workin' the rats, only
it ain't work, it's just little favors 1 do for 'em. Ubligin' and kind is me.
They herded us Xmas fellers up to a place they call the Commandments
office, only it ain't a bit like them in the Bible, it's kind of an otiiee. There was
a feller there dressed up in one of these here khakhi uniformitys and leather puts
like soldiers wear, only they say he ain't. But he's big enough for two of 'em,
and like our hired man, he always has a funny story every day. XX'ell. to get to
pin points, he gave me a key and told a fellow to take me there. and when we
got there two guys was there already, and they introduced themselves. such funny
names, I can't remember 'em, so 1 call 'em hy their nicknames, lfluzzard and
Simple. They call me lrlick, guess it's 'cause l have the hickups so often, don't
A feller told me to come to his room, and asked me if l was workin' for
anyone. Of course, 1 hadn't got no steady job yet, 1 says. "Xo." "XXI-ll." he
says, "you're workin' for me." 1 asks him how much he was going to pay me.
He told me 1 was a fresh rat, so says 1, yes. 1 just got here yesterday. 'llhen he
got real friendly like and sent me over for the key to the parade grounds. I
asked everyone, but everybody knew somebody else that had one. but they didn't
--1 guess there ain't no such thing.
A feller just come in with a big monkey wrench and asked it' l had paid my
raidator rent. Uf course 1 says no. lie says. you will have to pay a dollar for it
from now till june, or 1 will take it out. .Ns l desire to keep warm, l paid it.
Wlieii he went out my roommates laughed. 1 wonder why.
Instead of hollerin' or ringin' bells here, they blow the orders through a horn.
You got to know just what he says. l can't quite get everything he says. so l do
just like the rest does. 1'm clever, hey Maw? They call him a musician. only he
2li11't, 116 ClOGS11,t play a piano or make pretty sounds at all. lle ain't popular
near as much as me, they say nice things to me, but when they holler at him it's
simply marvelous the adjectives they hurl upon his poor self, or in other plain
talk, they cuss him somethin' tolerable.

same thing with a broom here-it hurts a lot more-when they say we get fiesh

When Earth's last exams are over,
The diplomas all rolled up and tied,
When the oldest B. S. has tainted,
And the youngest rat has died,
VVe shall rest Q"Ye Gods," we shall need itj
Lie down for an avon or two,
Till the master of Kable's tin soldiers
Shall set us to work anew.
And those who were good shall be happy
To pass M. B. S. they shall dare,
And go off limits past Main Street,
And only salute when they care.
They shall have real saints to drill for,
St. Peter, St. John, and St. Paul.
Shall "Pass in review" for ages,
And never get tired at all.
The Headmaster only shall praise us,
The Headmaster only shall blame,
And no one shall work for chevrons,
And no one shall work for a uname."
But each for the joy of existing,
And each in his separate star,
Shall shoot from ten thousand rifles,

It was a big, spacious room hlled with furniture and settings that suggested
home and comfort. A long, low lounge stretched in front of the open tire-place.
There was no light in the room except that which came from the flames as they
slowly ate up the pine logs on the hearth. The couple sat on the lounge very
close together. .
Neither spoke a wordg all was silent. Slowly their hands moved towards
each otherg they metg he grasped hers tightly in his: they lioth sighed deeply.
He was most happy nowg he was almost sure that he had surniized rightly. Yes!
Yes! it must be true, for how could it be otherwise with so strong an evidence?
But then the least bit of doubt crept into his heart: niaylie it was not true.
thoughg maybe he was mistaken. l-le was not positively sure, even though he
had every reason in the world to believe it. lt bothered him, grated on his nerves.
it haunted him, it made him afraid, so much so in fact, that he became determined
to know whether it was true or not.
Some moments passedg the lire burned a little lower, the light shone a little
dimmer, they were sitting closer together, he was holding her hand a little tighter.
Suddenly something within him seemed to say. ".tXslc her now: you might as well
know now as later." Then turning quickly, he gathered her in his arms and
murmured, "Tell me, my sweetheart, tell me truthfully! You did ell! an onion,
clidn't you ?
li you don't leel just right,
lf you can't sleep at night,
li you moan and sigh,
ll your throat is dry,
ll you ean't smoke or drink,
ll' your grub tastes like inlv,
ll your heart doesn't heal,
ll you've got cold leet,
ll your head's in a whirl-
W'hy don't you marry that girl?
Si Sulhiet TBUIU
The lad he was a soldier
just back from "Qver There,"
And she the girl he left behind.
A beauty with cold black hair.
It was the first time he had seen her
Since he left a year ago.
And of course the heart grows fonder.
Especially for a soldier beau.
He held her in his powerful arms
And stole a kiss or more.
Some sight it was that Daddy saw
Wfhen he walked in the door.
Now Daddy wore a Number 10
And measured six feet three:
He was ranking as a Colonel
In the held artillery.
To land Colonel's daughter
The soldier sure had dared.
And when he caught the sight of him.
I-le had reason to be scared.
The boy jumped to attention,
And not a word was said:
The soldier's face was ghastly white.
XVhile liather's face was red.
The Colonel answered the boy's salute
And at a glance conceived
That the soldier boy had left his post
VVithout being properlv relieved.
Daughter looked at Father,
Father looked at her-
And as he turned to go to bed,
I-le commanded "As You XYere."

The game opened with Molasses at the stick and Smallpox catching. Cigar
was in the box with plenty of smoke. Horn on first, and Fiddle on second base,
backed by Corn in the field, m-ade it hot for Umpire Apple, who was rotten. Axe
came to the bat and chopped, Cigar let Brick walk, and Sawdust filled the bases,
Song made a hit, and Twenty? made a score. Cigar went out and Balloon started
to pitch, but went straight up. Then Cherry tried it, but was wild. Old Ice
kept cool in the game until he was hit by a pitched ball, when you ought to
have heard Ice Cream. Cabbage had a good head and kept quiet. Grass covered
lots of ground in-the field, andthe crowd cheered when Spider caught the

Light out. In the fifth inning VVind began to blow what he could do. Hammer
began to knock, and Trees began to leave. The way they roasted Peanuts was
a fright. Knife was put out for cutting first base. Lightning. flashed pitching
the game, and struck out six men. In the ninth, Apple told Fiddle to take his
base, Cats was shocked, then Song made another hit. Trombine made a slide
and Meat was put on the plate. There was lots of betting on the game, but
Soap cleaned up. The score was l to O. Door said if he had pitched he would

Dear Mother :
Lots of things have happened since I wrote you that letter last Sunday.
lNhen I wrote you that letter I was rooming down at the "X ." but now I am
rooming in number 101, Main Barracks. I wasn't so specially anxious to change
rooms, but Col. Russell said that I wasn't receiving enough of his personal atten-
tion down at the "Y" and that he wanted me to move up to the "Dew Drop
Inn," where he could see that I was properly looked after. .-Xnd that s how l
came to be where I am now. Maybe you would like to hear it. so l'll tell you how
it happened, that he's taken such an interest in me.
You see there was an awful good show came to Staunton last 'lihursday
night, and as I wanted to see it, I sneaked from my room at the on down
to Mr. Hogshead's Drug Store and who should I meet but Co. T. Ci. himself.
Of course I said "Hello, Col., how's tricks ?" just to be friendlv and show him I
liked him. I tho't I had made him mad at first. because insteacf ot giving me a
friendly answer, he said, "Have you got leave F" l-But prettv soon l found out
that he wasnt soreg because when I asked him what he meant 'ie la

showing me more attention that I ever dreamed of getting at S. M. .-X. It was
then that he invited me to: his UDEIY DROP INN." K if

I'll tell you, Mother, Col. Russell is a friend to me sure enough: and just
to show you how kind-hearted he is, he even made another cadet come down-
town from Barracks with me to git ' l

such good friendsj made hi1n do this, but 'Ted didnyt care, because he was look-
ing out for my welfare. '
Ted is so afraid something will hurt me.that he won't even let me go to the
wash-room without one of those armed cadets with me, to see that no one harms
me. I really get tired of his unceasing attention, but he's such a good fellow
that I don't like to hurt his feelings by telling him that, so I guess I'll just have
to continue to be one of his guests at "Dew Drop Inn," until he gets tired of me.
I could tell you a lot more, because I don't have anything to do except
write, although Ted does insist that Farrell, Nunnally, Holmden, Ferbend, and
I take exercise every day during recreation, with a big gun on our shoulder, but
I have run out of paper so must close.
Your own beloved son,
P. S. : Don't forget to address all my mail to the "Dew Drop Inn,"' 101 Main
Barracks, S. M. A. 5 because Col. Russell insists that I stay here under his personal
care for at least a month.
P. S. No. 2. You needn"t bother about sending 1'lly allowance for the next
three weeks, as I won't'get a chance to spend it anyway.
There are three words, the sweetest words,
In all of human speech-
More sweet than are all songs of birds,
Gr pages poets preach.
This life may be a vale of tears,
A sad and dreary thing-
Tdree words, and trouble disappears
And birds begin to sing.
Three words, and all the roses bloom,
The sun begins to shine.
Taree words will dissipate the gloom,
And water will turn to wine.
Three 'words will cheer the saddest days-
"I love you?" VVrong, by heck!
It is another phrase:
"Inclosed find check."
