Cut Mid-Year Losses
HE under named graduates came to us before their departure at the close of the
Hrst semester and begged us to do them justice in the Annual-even hinted
about a pecuniary bribe, in other words a donation if we did not neglect them.
They recounted their abilities individually and collectively, their class records Cand
zeroes.j They even suggested that we Hll up space to the amount of Hfteen pages to
their credit. We have done our best and we hope the result will be pleasing to them.
If we have thrown a few bouquets Cor rocksj, it was because we believed it our duty
to do so. QWe are now anxiously waiting for the promised financial reimbursementj
Paulie is a blonderina who hasn't been long in the twenties and moves slowly.
The blush of youth is still upon his cheek. He's solid from the ground up and his teeth
would do for a Colgate ad. He is an early riser as the high school neighbors can testifyg
in fact, they used Paul's daily promenade up the hill as an alarm clock-a most reliable
one at that, for he never varied a quarter of a second. Paul loves horses, but also likes
to ride in the back seat of a Buick. During his years in high school he was neither absent
nor tardy-an enviable record unequalled by any other graduate. He always salutes
his friends with "hey" and covers more space than any other member of his class.
He was formerly President of the Board of Arbitration in continuous session around the
stove in Garman's Feed Stable but at present is too busy presiding as chief engineer
of the coffee mill at the Cash Store to attend the meetings.
Alva is a farmer by education and bringing up, but, unlike the proverbial Agric,
he isnlt cool as a cucumber and shy as a partridge. He's a good deal of a trifler and
likes too many girls at the same time. lt's all right to ride in the Ford with him but
you musn't believe a word he says. Since February he's been "helping father" but
occasionally gets to town. Of late he has looked rather lonely and is often heard to
remark, "New York's a long ways off."
Light weight but fully warranted ISK. His favorite song is " l'm Satishedf' His
ideas seem to be "central"-ized at present. Ed is little but he certainly could go it
when it came to football. In basketball also he wasn't so slow. He was always tor-
tured with an insatiable thirst for knowledge and so eager for it that he stayed an extra
half year. We missed him greatly when he left-especially his daily strolls across the
room at recess and dismissals to chat with the lady "who was always waiting there."
Arnold is all right when he isn't crippled. He's as true as a blow from a hammer
and steady as the whirl of the world. He dances divinely. .lust watch him some time
and look at the girl he's dancing with. He's tall and teasing and the kind that usually
wants to pull straws with a girl after a dance to see which takes the other home. He
takes a slow gait, but he's always there when it comes to football and basketball. His
only difhculty in school was that he didn't know where to put his feet.
An Irishman of pronounced attractions and characteristic gait. lle's tall, willowy
and winsome. He but recently came to us from Chicago, but has made something of
a record among us in oratory and athletics. He can make a girl think she's the lirst
one he has ever noticed and that he can't see another thing, but he wears his heart. on
his sleeve, and is an adept in the quick transfer of his affection. He's good cheer and
sunshine in full measure.
At present attends Ripon College and other places. Bud's middle name is hustle
and he was always somewhat dissatisiied in Tomah High because the teachers didn't
assign longer lessons and because the students were too frivolous. He seems to have
some time for girls and makes use of it. He made a record for himself in debate. lle's
the kind that was always piping up in class and asking for longer lessons.
Quiet but interesting. She can smile but seldom does. Her behavior is without
reproach. She inspired awe in the eyes of the Freshmen because of her appalling
dignity. At present she is staying out on the farm enjoying nature, resting, and inci-
dentally helping with the housework.
A gracious, sunny maiden, with a big appetite for knowledge. She was never al-
lowed to sit on the front seat in classes for fear she would not let any knowledge get
past her to the rest of the class. Edna sometimes invokes the Muse of Poetry as you'll
observe by reading last year's Annual. She is capable of cruelly playing with the
honest affections of manfof which we have specific examples. She took the Teacher's
Course and at present is following that line of work. She enjoys her new duties and
we can safely say that her pupils enioy her.

unior Class History
E, the progressive class of '18, duly entered high school September 7, IQI4.
On that day we felt as sheepish as any old bachelor, who is about to ask a
widow to become his better half, and share, for the rest of her life, the left
arm of his smoking chair. We were told to draw seats in the Sub-Assembly room
described as the room held by "the little man with the red face." As Hres generally
start in the basement, we were told that that room had been reserved for us, it being
the room nearest the same, and that if a fire should break out, we were so green we
would smother it before it got started.
Our career as Freshmen went rather badly for the Hrst few days, but after we had
been straightened out we were able to go about the building as well as many of the
Sophomores, who were our best misleaders.
About the third week of school a class meeting was held in the Sub-Assembly.
Mr. Collinge informed us, on seeing the room the next morning, that if another like
meeting was held it would be our last. At this meeting the following oflicers were
PRESIDENT ....... . . .SHERMAN CROTY
VICE-PRESIDENT .... ..... F RANCIS O'LEARY
SECRETARY ..,... ..... D ONALD HOISINGTON
TREASURER .... .... . . . ....... MURIEL MCCOLLOUGH
Our President being a tall man and not used to heavy burdens, surrendered his
title to a somewhat shorter man, Alvin Hopp.
lnnumerable reasons caused us to enter school as Sophomores with a smaller physi-
cal body but larger mentally.
Our class was enlarged by several new members, who aided us in extending the
greetings we had received the year before, to the most honored Freshmen, who looked
in general far greener than we did the year before, especially to us as we could not see
our own actions. So ends our career as Sophs.
As Juniors we entered school September 7, 1916, a somewhat smaller number than
we had left with in June, as several of our men had gone to Mexico, but their places were
hllecl by new pupils. Thus our Junior year started with our thoughts on geometric
constructions and the Junior Prom, which we think will be a better success than any
other Promenade held by the Juniors of Tomah High, as our class are all good boosters,
especially in society-this being shown by their good attendance at the many school
parties held during the term.
Trusting that when the Annual comes out next June, our Prom and other events
will have been a success, we will leave the remainder of our history until we are Seniors,
when we will be better able to finish our Junior History, as we are poor forecasters.
As ever the Class of '18. E. L. '18
Sophomore Class History
S we were too young to have a voice last year, this is our lirst chance to explain
the greatness ol' the most illustrious class in Toinah High School. Contrary
to other classes, we are not ashamed of our Freshman experiences. lt is true
we had a touch of that disease known as grccnness, but that was only according to pre-
cedent, and it quickly passed off.
We lirst met as a class during the second week of school, in the sub-assembly, and
in a very short and orderly meeting the following ollicers were elected:
PREsiDEN'r. .i,,, . . .DOL'GL.AS BELL
VICE-PREs1DENT. . , ...... EDITH XYEAGER
SECRETARY ,.... . . .LORENA BONGERS
Fl1REASL'RER .,.,4..,,.. .....,,..,....,........ . , .CLEMENS LUECR
Our president was later succeeded by Leon Stelter.
We were represented on the football team by George W'oll'e, Leon Stelter, and hlark
Reardong on the basketball team by George Wolfe and Peter Brunetteg and in debating
by Clemens Lueck.
The only social event of the year was the Freshman-Sophomore " Prom," on May
4th, which was a grand success.
As to activeness, no matter in what class-room we were at the fire-alarm signal, the
Freshmen were always out lirst.
VVe came back to school Sept. 15, IQI6, as lull-fledged Sophomores, fully resolved
to treat the Freshmen more kindly than we had been treated. llow we lived up to our
resolution may be told later on by the Freshmen themselves.
This year we had three men on the football team, two on the basketball team,
and two on the debating team. One ol' our class-mates, Peter Brunette, served as a
soldier with the National Guard on the Mexican border the first semester, but again
joined us the second semester.
Our present class ollicers are:
PRESIDENT ..... . . .CLEN1fiNS LUECR

Freshman Class History
EING old enough to have a voice, we are very thankful for this opportunity of
using it, although, we must confess, that we hardly anticipated the pleasure,
owing to the high cost of paper at the present time.
On Tuesday, September 6, 1916, we entered the Tomah High School, seventy-six
in number. We represented "quality and quantity," a combination seldom seen, and
while our exterior may have blossomed forth in that peculiar shade of green, character-
istic ofthe Freshman, it was like beauty, only skin deep. lnwardly, we were Hlled
with a firm determination that the "menagerie" would be minus its "goats" this year.
The excessive heat of those September days soon removed a small portion of the firm-
ness, but we adjusted ourselves to the daily routine of high school life with exceptionally
We believed that the application of our natural talent to avoid mistakes was the
reason why we made so few, but the following is another reason, which found its origin
in one of the upper classes:
"The watchful eye of somebody's brother,
Advice from somebody's sister fair,
Were stars, which lighted the "Freshy,s" wayg
Telling him how, and when, and where."
If neither our reason nor their reason sounds plausible to you, blame it onto the warg
it's the reason for everything these days.
ln course of time, we held a class meeting, and elected the following ofhcers:
PRESIDENT .........,...... . . . i . . .KENNETH JOHNSON
VICE-PRESIDENT .i.,......,.. .,.,... K ARYL ALLER
SECRETARY AND TREASURER .......................... PHILLIP KRESS
The majority of us spent our first semester in the sub-assembly, and those days
will always be a pleasant memory.
Several of the Freshmen bid fair to become prominent in athletics, next year.
A grand effort was put forth to teach us the art of "Ticket Selling," but as our
talent does not lie in that direction, it proved to be a miserable failure.
Some of the Seniors think our middle name is " Party," but what is there in a name?
"The Future's like an ocean, on which our bark must sail,
But we're the combination to battle with the gale,
With Quality as captain, and Quantity as crew,
We'll sail along the Sophomore sea, and greet you when we're through."

In singing, Miss Williams excels, that is sure,
But in spelling we think she's decidedly poor.

But teaches History without a llaw.

To the Students of Tomah High School
LANCING backward over our four years' life in Tomah High School-four
years of hard work along the narrow path that leads to the wide field of knowl-
edge-we feel that we cannot part from you, our underclassmen, without' a few
words of parting advice. The class of 1917 does not feel that it has been perfection,
but the old saying goes, "Experience is a good teacher," yet she is sometimes rough in
dealing with her pupils so perhaps by following our advice you may escape a few of
her hardest knocks.
CLASS OF 1918-Three months hence you will tread the same paths we have trod,
think the same thoughts we have thought and undergo the same difficulties we have
undergone, and, no doubt, try to excel us in brilliancy. For three years, Juniors, we
have watched you who are to Hll the places left vacant by us. We are proud of your
debaters, your orators and athletes and feel that you can ably fill our places. Take up
your burdens and responsibilities and never forget that you are Seniors and act accord-
ingly. Under no conditions ever whisper in the class rooms, for remember you are
unceasingly watched. Continue the publication of the Annual. By no means let the
good work fall through, but raise the price, for there's no money in it as it is. Do not
form the evil habit, as a few of your predecessors did, of translating German in groups
ofthree or four, for it may lead to other things, as talking fashion, discussing last night's
dates, etc. As Seniors, show your importance by having many class meetings-any
time, morning, noon or night. After having a "night out" the previous evening be
sure and have your Physics, German and History or you may be requested to recite
after school. Lastly, stick together, keep in constant touch with each other, don't let
your members drop out. You areentering your last year in school life-make the most
CLASS OF 1919-An essential part of a good school is punctuality. Along this line
some of your members are sadly lacking-improve. Don't be too far advanced for your
years. Keep to the manners and customs of the Sophomore Class. Don't try to rival
the Seniors. Don't spurn the Freshmen. Remember you have but just passed that
stage and still have a few oftheir traits. Apply yourselves industriously to your studies.
Do not concentrate all your attention on one subject-experience has shown that it is
a poor plan.
CLASS OF IQ20-YOU are a praiseworthy class although a few of you seem to have
escaped the kindergarten very early. You have succeeded in learning to walk up the
two flights of stairs without a mishap. The hours kept by you we do not approve.
Any Freshman sleighride party should return before six A. M. regardless of the con-
dition of the roads. Also, dances and theater parties to allure the bashful young swains
on the Faculty are tabooed. So look out! By referring to your course of study you
will End that history extends throughout your Sophomore year. We suggest that you
gain the friendship of some promising member of this year's Sophomore class, and borrow
his or her notebook-'twill be of great value. Treat the coming Freshmen with all due
regard. Be good to them, tell them of the time-honored customs of the school. Don't
laugh at the many falls they take as a result of learning to walk up stairs. Do not smile
when they assemble for music and do not annoy them. Keep up your studies so that
when you are Seniors you will not be obliged to make up Freshman subjects.
T0 ALL-TTL' hope and trust that during your remaining years in T. ll. you will
aim to maintain the good name and honor ol' TOMAH HIGII SCHOOL. Wie believe
that you admire us and are grieved to see us leayc. Wle hope so at least, as one ol' our
greatest trials was to teach you, the underclassmen, to respect our dignity, and we now
trust that you will laithliully uphold the ideals lor which we have striven.
We Suggest That:
You keep your leet out ol' the aisle when Griggs is passing.
You don't throw chalkfthe doors may be locked during noon hours.
Everybody sing in morning- chorus.
You don't stand in groups in the halls.
You don't chew gum in class.
The doors be closed when Hopp laughs so as not to disturb the apparatus in the Lab.
You don't copy your neighbor's book report.
You don't make Mr. Davis blush.
That Helen don't meet Lloyd in the lower hall every noon and night.
That you report at the ollice when sent out ol' class to avoid llurthcr trouble.
That you don't come to class alter an absence without a permit.
Lad Hanover get rubber heels so as not to rattle the windows when hc walks.
XVe all learn to use correct ljnglish and spell correctly to avoid the llnglish llospital.
How Would It Seem If:
Physics was out ol' the course.
The schoolhouse wasn't on the hill.
There were no Freshmen.
VVC always got lo.
Mr. Maxwell should say, "By the wayfu
There weren't any exams.
Mr. Davis began his speeches by saying, "Ah 2'
The Juniors liorgot to give a Prom.
Alvera was on time.
VVe all behaved.
There were no Notebooks.
The Cash Store trio should break up.
One Monday would pass without a speech from Mr. Bray.
Clara Y. recited in history.
O'Brien kept still.
Art VVegner should grow.
Herbert Rose had his German.
Spud could visit the Reading Table.
Mr. Maxwell should lead the Orchestra.
There were no moyies to go to.
Lydia Hendricks didn't smile all day long.
Florence O'Leary wasn't always good-natured.
Viola Corbet stopped talking.
August Cabower wasn't bashliul.
Vera Hatch did not giggle.
Eldon Noth should recite.

The Football Season
HE football season at Tomah High began with a large number of new meng Moran,
Ziebell, Wolf, Hopp, and Reardon being the only experienced players. Coach
Davis, however, immediately decided that the material looked promising and
started the ball rolling. The team proved to be an exceptionally heavy and fast machine
and easily showed its superiority by defeating Portage at that place by a I4 to 0 score
fa thing which had not been done for some yearslg also holding La Grosse to a one
score game. Tomah defeated every opponent with the exception of La Crosse and the
outlook is promising for next year although we lose Ziebell and Moran.

XKVALTER BORCHERT CREDJ
Red is one of our best men. I-le plays a brainy game from start to finish and the
school as well as the team will feel his loss next year.
FRANK MILLER QFRANKIED
Small, but, Oh my! Miller put up a fast game at forward although handicapped
by his Weight.
LAWRENCE WESTLAKE CWESD
When the Indians got in the way of an epidemic of "German Measles" he came
to the rescue and fought well for the honor of Tomah High.
HOWARD O,LEARY CBUCKOJ
It takes an Irishman to beat the Dutch. He came out when Tomah was in a
ti ht inch and his watch-word was, "Ireland ueber Alles."
GEORGE STRACHAN CJUDD
Another member of the above named family whose natural tendencies seem to run
to black eyes, but he's a coming basketball player for Ha' that."
The Basketball Season
The basketball season began in December with a large amount of material to begin
with. The first two games of the seaons, Galesville and the Alumni, were played With
the following lineup: Miller, forward, Borchert, forward, Moran, forward, Wolf, guard,
Hopp, guard, Anderson, center.
By much lucky basket shooting Tomah defeated the Galesville squad by a score of
24 to 19. Then we lost Anderson and Moran and the team was again shifted around,
putting Wolf at center and Borchert at guard. DeNomie, who had returned from the
border, was placed at forward. Folson was then placed at center and Wolf at forward.
This strengthened the team, but, owing to hard luck in shooting baskets, was defeated
in every game away from the home floor. Another unfortunate incident occurred just
previous to the La Crosse game. The Indian School was quarantined for measles and
this prevented Wolf, Brunette and Miller from playing. The game, however, was
not postponed and the team left for La Crosse with only two regular team men and
held La Crosse to a 33 to I0 score. Although We finished the season with a defeat on
our own floor by Baraboo, basketball fans will agree with us that Tomah can be a good
loser as well as a good winner.
In the inter-class games the Freshman basketball team proved that the old saying,
"Green as grass," is untrue by defeating all comers for the class championship.
TOMAI-I WINS FIRST GAME
IIOME TEAM HAS EASY VICTORY OVER RIVALS
THE TRIP TO PORTAGE
Four-thirty is an early hour to catch a train, but all of the fellows were there when the time came
with the exception of Bruno Krueger. After an uneventful ride, we reached Portage about 6:30 and
were taken to the hotel in autos where we proceeded to have our breakfast. V
After this we went out and walked about the town, viewing the canal, high school building and
pther points of interest until 10:00 when the boys went up to the rooms and went to bed for a couple of
.lust as we had finished dinner, Krueger arrived, having caught the freight and ridden four hours.
This kind of helped things out and the team felt that when a fellow was willing to make the trip anyway
to be there, that they would play all the harder to show Tomah people that they were out to win.
Our line played a line game Saturday and the consistent gains of O'Leary, Ziebell, Miller, Smith
and Johnson, combined with the gains through the center by Moran and the passes by Zy, all contributed
to the fact that the ball was in their territory most of the time. Miller, also, did exceptionally line
work, intercepting their forward passes, so that only two of them went for gains. Tomah was penalized
for holding and off-side more than Portage was, but the penalties did not come when they were danger-
ous, so that they were not disastrous.
A dance was given in the evening for the Tomah players and most of them attended until 11:20
when we left to catch the train.-Alonitor Herald.
LA CROSSE 33-TOMAH I0
The T. H. S. basketball team went to La Cicsse in a badly crippled condition and were defeated
by a score of 33 to 10. DeNomie went past the age limit last Friday and Wolfe, Miller and Brunette
were kept home at the last minute on account of German Measles.
Folson pla ed center, Borchert and Hopp, guardsg and Westlake, Strachan and O'I..eary, forwards.
We missed Wolfe in shooting baskets from field. O'Leary registered the only held basket for Tomah.
Hopp, however, proved an excellent experiment at registering free throws. Although he has never
acted in this capacity in former games he registered eight out of eleven chances.
The team that went to La Crosse are to be congratulated on their loyalty and gameness against
heavy odds. This is a true Tomah spirit for during the past seven years Tomah has carried out its
complete schedule in all sports and contests and has never quit a game though sometimes it has re-
ceived a good sound drubbing. This kind of athletics is bound to yield the best results and make
expenditures in athletic contests worth while.-Tomah Journal.
Overconfidence nearly defeated the La Crosse High School football players in the second game of
the season at Tomah Saturday when they managed to win only by desperate efforts in the last period
by a score of 7 to 0.
Coach Bell, although secretly disappointed at the showing of the players, said it was the best thing
that could happen to an overconhdent aggregation. His hopes for beating Chippewa Falls, which
has not won a game this year, here on Friday are rising.
Tomah felt highly elated over the score. Coach Davis of the eleven is today being praised by all
the fans in Tomah who feel that he has worked wonders with his material.
Many La Crosse rooters saw the battle and cheered themselves hoarse when the team marched
the length of the field and Feinberg went over for the only marker of the contest. A large number of
local fans went to the game in autos, the day being ideal for a cross country ride.-La Crosse Leader Press.
TOMAH 49-S11-ARTA 0
Tomah won the football game from Sparta Saturday by a score of 49 to 0. Capt. Ziebell and
quarterback hloran stood out as stars in Sparta's defeat. Ziebell was everywhere and Moran's judg-
ment in plays has never been equalled on the Tomah Campus. Sparta played in streaks and were not
outgamed but were outplayed. In the fourth quarter Tomah piled up 28 points. Tomah got off with
a jump and scored I4 points in the first four minutes of play. For the rest of the half Sparta came
back strong and were threatening to score at the end of the half. A stiff defense at the critical moment
and TIME saved the Tomah goal line.
Although Tomah had never witnessed the Sparta ag regation in action they had been coached to
stop Capt. Evans and the forward pass. Capt. Ziebell's Iong arms pulled down pass after pass as did
O'Leary at half-back. Had Sparta resorted to a kicking game she would no doubt have greatly reduced
the score. As it was, her desperate effort to score caused her to constantly use the forward pass. This
was invariably interce ted, placing Tomah within striking distance of the goal. Capt. Evans stood
out as the star of the Sparta team and did yeoman work on both offense and defense. He was in the
bottom of every pile-up, but he weakened noticeably in the last quarter.-Monitor Herald.
OMAH tools part in two debates this year. The question submitted for the
Quadrangular Debate was: Resolved, that state boards of arbitration with com-
pulsory powers be established to settle all intra-state disputes between employer
and employee. The question was a very live one in which everybody showed great
interest. The negative team debated Viroqua and the affirmative team debated La
For several months we worked on our speeches, practicing delivery, building up for
offence and preparing for the defense until we were conversant with all phases and in-
terpretations ofthe question, and while meeting all arguments of the opposition were
leaving them no loop-hole for attack on our own arguments.
February oth, the day the debates were to be held, came at last. The negative
team, composed of Robert Bentzen, Bruno Krueger and Donald Hoisington, left early
for Viroqua. The decision here was hard against them, but we compliment them on
the brave light they put up.
On the same evening the afhrmative debated with La Crosse here. After a few
touching selections by the High School Orchestra the debate was opened by Arthur
Wegner. The debate was then continued on the affirmative by Leonard Verick, and
finally closed by Clemens Lueck. After another selection by the Orchestra the decision
rendered by the Judges was given out-the decision being 2 to I in favor of the afhrm-
ative. The main characteristic of this debate was the "pep" with which both sides
delivered their speeches and rebuttals.
Although the decisions might have been more favorable, to Mr. Watson, our de-
bating coach, is due a great amount of credit for having worked so patiently with us.
Ho1s1NGroNHAlthough this is his hrst year at actual debate he surely has shown
his capability as a debater.
LUECK-XVllCIl a German is an orator he is a great orator. That's how we feel
about him. His speeches and rebuttals have won many Judges.
KRUEGER-Another German of some renown. We are sorry that this is his first
and last year of debate for Tomah High.
VERICK-SH1Z1ll in stature but great in deeds. He still has two more years in
High School, and will develop into a capable debater.
BENTZEN-Another hrst-year man at debate. His talent as a debater has not been
WEGNERfAnd still another German-the greatest of them all. This is Arthur's
second year of debate and he has proven himself a wonderful help to the teams. His
willingness to work and his ability "to deliver the goods" will make him greatly missed
JUNIOR-SENIOR DEBATES FOR THE ROWLANDS' CUP
The Seniors have again won the Rowlands' Cup! We are rejoicing, for only once
before in the history of Tomah High School has a class won the Rowlands' Cup twice.
We therefore are proud of the "Class of 19I7."

The Austin I-like
EPTEMBER 20th, the National Guardsmen stationed at Camp Wilson, San
Antonio, Texas, hegan a history making march to the city ofAustin. The column,
under command of General Greene, constituting the twelfth provisional division,
extended along the dusty state road for ten miles, and was made up of troops from
XYiseonsin, Illinois, Kansas, Texas, the 16th United States Cavalry, the 7th United
States Artillery, including live thousand horses and mules, two hundred motor trucks
The route to Austin lay along the tracks ofthe Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad,
and owing to the fact that the water supply along the route was not sullieient to supply
the needs of the troops, a train of tank ears was engaged to furnish water. These cars
would he lilled with water in the towns and transported to places where the water wagons
of the soldiers eould he lilled. Thus were the men furnished with wholesome drinking
The men carried full lield equipment including three days rations. The comhined
weight of this pack was about sixty-live pounds.
The lirst stop for camp was at Luxello, eighteen miles from San Antonio. The
following day the troops marched nineteen miles to Landa Park, New Braunfel, where
the second eamp was made. The following day a sham battle was fought with the
VN'iseonsin Brigade, assisted by the loth cavalry and 'th lield artillery, sueeessliully
repulsing an invading lioree from the states ol' Illinois, Kansas and Texas.
The following day the mareh was resumed and after a hard mareh ol' twenty miles
the eolu mn reaehed Hunter. Alter a good night's rest they took up the mareh to Buda,
sixteen miles north ol' Hunter. The next day the soldiers reaehed the banks ol' the
Blaneo River. This eamping plaee will long be remembered by them as it gave them
an opportunity lor a plunge in the eooling and refreshing waters ol' the river.
The next mareh was the shortest one ol' the hike, being only thirteen miles to St.
Iflmo. The eity ol' Austin eould be easily seen lirom St. Elmo whieh was situated on
The morning ol' the twenty-seeond was pleasant. The boys in khaki were anxious
to take up the mareh to Camp Mabry whieh was the eamping ground lor the troops
while in Austin, but because the day's mareh was only eight miles the troops did not
start until ten-thirty o'eloek.
The streets ol' Austin were deeorated with llags and bunting, and erowded with
people eager to see the soldiers whom, in spite ol' blistered and aehing lieet, marehed to
the time ol' spirited musie rendered by the numerous bands in the division.
On the steps ol the State Capitol was the reviewing stand lirom whieh Governor
Ferguson, Generals Funston and Green and other military authorities reviewed the
troops. Alter marching through the eity and two miles beyond to Camp Mabry, the
soldiers made eamp.
The stay oli three days in Austin was enioyed, lior the people were very iitmiiiliitt
and extended to the soldiers their heartiest weleome, and clicl everything in their power
to make their visit as enjoyable as possible.
The return mareh to Camp YYilson was not dreaded by the men as they were now
thoroughly hardened to strenuous marehing. On the twenty-sixth ol' September the
return journey was begung the same camping places were used.
At llunter the soldiers were relieved ol' their paeks, whieh were earried into Camp
Vvilson on motor trueks, and the soldiers eould now mareh in mueh better time.
As the last two laps ol- the return trip were made at night, it was mueh more pleasant,
for the burning sun added greatly to the diseomliort ol. the hikers.
On the night ol' October third at eleven-thirty o'eloek the eolumn quietly marehed
into Camp W'ilson and the greatest mareh ever attempted by a body ol' United States
troops during peaee times was eompleted.

Mass Meeting Program-Mr. Maxwell in Charge
TEACII in this school the course in commerce,
ll' it isn't real good, it might be worscg
Now what I say will have to be terse,
ll' you like this4we'lI have :mother verse.
On Friday, Saturday and Tuesday next, in basketball and dehate,
We meet our dreaded rivals, and will wipe them from the slate.
I mean Portage, Viroqua, Sparta and La Crosse,
lfaeh will suflier liearliul loss.
The Girls' Double Quartette will sing a song,
It may he short, it may be long,
But whichever it is, I know 'twill be good,
For with eight such line singers, it naturally would.
The next man l shall call upon,
llis name is Donald lloisington,
Un Friday night in a neighboring town,
lIe'll bring to old Tomah great renown.
Clemens l.ueek is very small,
lle's neither lat, nor very tall,
With no further introduction, or other fuss,
lIe'll answer, "What Will La Crosse do to Us?"
Our dehate man soon will leave thc state,
And this is to he his last dehate,
I am sure ol all ol' his contests,
llis last will he by lar the hest.
Next we'll hear from the Boys' Octette,
liigln liner singers llye never metg
And on next 'liuesday night I am willing to het,
Unless something happens, thcy'll be singing yet.
Uur Nlanual Training instructor,
Don't look like a vocal king,
Ile isn't --hut he's the director,
The eight other fellows can sing.
l,ast fall at a football mass meeting,
Woll' told ol' the Portage game,
And now as our lJasketl'ball captain,
llis topic will lie---t he same.
Some weeks ago we all said,
"Just wait till we get our lid."
At Sparta Eddie eouldn't play,
But ht-'Il make up for that next Tuesday.
Our coaches' hlushing, bashllul ways,
Are passing with the passing days,
VK'e'll listen now to what he says
In the second ol the resumes.
Our Nlr. Bray within these walls,
ls paid mostly to talk,

The prime idea in saving, is to provide for the future.
Savings accounts for children are a continual remind-
er to the depositor that he has a duty, which requires
a sacrifice, which in the end will bring a reward, and
again, acquire a habit which is the foundation of all
financial success. Start your boy or girl with a sav-
ings account and see what a liberal education it will
be to them. 31.00 opens an account in our Savings
