AN ELECTION IN THE ELE- MENTARY SCHOOL. As a. result of the efforts of the children in the Elementary School to secure money to build their house it has been found necessary to elect a. school treasurer. As this goes to press the plans are being made for the election, which will, as far as practicable, duplicate the election of a. town or county treasurer. The convention will be held January 10. Following the convention. at which time the children will make nomina- tions for the office, registration, and election by ballot will be carried through. . The Work of the treasurer will be largely the care of Lhe funds which are expended for the house which the children are building. In addi- tion to this they End they have suf- ficient funds to pay part of the sal- ary of the new athletic director and to become active members of the chi1dren's Aid Society of Baltimore County. L. C. W. THE ENGLISH WORK OF JUNIOR SIX. We have had some work and some play in English this session. The most interesting play period was our "weenie" roast. Late in the past fall the members of the -section donned their walking clpthes and hiked with Mrs. Stapleton and Miss Timberlake to Rogers' Forge for the outing. While there members of the group played games, told stories and acted them out. After partak- ing heartily of "hot-dogs," rolls, hard-boiled eggs, cocoa. apples, ba- nanas and marsh mallows, we started back-to the dormitory leaving a bad- ly shaken uv Dprsimrnon tree and the dying ernifrs of the'big bon- fire which had helped to cheer the place and warm the frosty air. The work has consisted of gram- mar and composition during the first term and contemporary literature during this term. N6Xt ieml we shall have expression. Through our composition wqrk we have found out some interesting things about ourselves. The. set or papers, for example, in whxch .we told about our individual hob.b1es. Showed some interesting side-11S11QS upon our varous desires and ambl- tions. .x. 0 CAROLINE HIGH SCHOOL BOYS ENTERTAINED. Thursday morning, December 22, following their Wednesday afternoon game with Catonsville which deter- mined the soccer championship be- tween the Eastern and the Western Shore, the Caroline High School boys lunched ar. Newell Hall. The hostesses with A-Irs. Curry conducted a. tour of the Administration Build- ing and the boys' barracks. Our hope is that they carried away with them such a pleasant impression of us that they will join us next fall. Ag..:..'..j..:..:..:..g..:..1..j..j..g..g..:..:..:..g..g..:..g..g..g..Q..g..j.

Our object in history ia, so tar vaa possible, to connect past history with than of the present time. In pursuance ot this object, we stud- iied the progress of the manufacture of cloth. This we traced from an- iuient limes, to our own colonial :times and from then to the present Ntime, the age of great inventions. It was in the interest ot this phase ,ot study, that weaccepted an invi- tation to visit the Woodberry Cot- ton Mills, in Baltimore City, The representatives of the vari- ous classes of the school, were es- corted through the mills by the man- agers and proprietors. The various steps essential in cotton manufac- tureg cleaning, carding, spinning and weaving were fully explained as the representatives passed from one step in the process to another.. In visiting the mills, several mo- tives were kept in mind, es- pecially the comparison bt present day mill conditions, with those of England before the Industrial Revo- lution. Although we found condi- tions very much improved, all agreed that surroundings could still be made more comfortable for the em- ployees. As we walked through the mills, we could scarcely help wondering at Ithe progress made by man's mind :in allowing him to invent such won- fderful means by which cloth can fnow be manufactured. 5 HAVE ANOTHER CUP! 8 Of sea? Thank you, Miss Ayre. yThis phrase has had several occas- iions to sound this year in the North Parlor of Newell Hall where our social director delightfully enter- tained various groups of girls at af- ternoon teas. Each girl has taken away with her pleasant impressions of subdued light and jolly chatter- ling, presided over by 0111' most icharming hostess, Miss Ayre. 'Q 4.

From breakfast time Monday morning until supper Friday night we found impertinent and colorful posters staring us in the face where- ever we went around the school buildings. These posters gave us many warnings and much good ad- vice about our use of the English language. On Tuesday Dr. French. assistant professor of English at Johns Hopkins University, gave us a' very interesting and helpful talk on "Personal English." I-Ie told us we should trouble about our speech Brat. because it is ours and second because it is not ours. This sounds very 'contradictory but he made it perfectly clear to us. During this entire week a wood- en coffin lay in our hall and in lt we placed all errors in speech that we wished to hear no more. On Thursday, after a very' dellghiful dramatic representation of the downfall of Bad English and some of his fellow bandits, such as Slang, the Pied Piper came, took the cof- dn and buried lt and charmed many grammatical errors from our classes. Since that time we have not seen or heard of them. C23 Other interesting series of assem- blies were those given by the House- hold Arts, Industrial Arts and His- tory Departments.

"Cho-Cho says that cold lunches are not good ,for us, especially for growing boys and girls and that is just the reason why our school pro- vides a good, wholesome lunch for its students," explained Jane. "A wholesome lunch? What do you consider a wholesome lunch?" "Exactly what we are serving here-milk, soups, cocoa, simple sandwiches and well-baked muffins, desserts: as, fresh fruit, custards, simple cakes and ice cream." "But how do they ever dnd time to prepare all of this food?" asked Marv. "Oh, that is quite simple," con- tinued Jane, "many of the things served are prepared during our class periods in the Household Economic., Department. This is just a type of the work we are planning in our Senior III section. A great deal of the success in our serving here is due to the skillful management o one well-trained supervisor.

Over, but not forgotten, is the class play that was given by the Senior Class at Normal on the even- ing of December sixteenth. Really one would think we were profes- sionals at the "game" instead of the amateurs we are. One of the bestl parts for one of its secret beautiesl ' was that each member of the wholel class had a. vital place to dll and actually felt the responsibility of having something good and worth-1 while. The class did everything ex-5 cept write the play and print the' programs and tickets: even the post- ers were designed by the girls. i The hut scene was as real as-oh! 5 but I'm telling too muchg a. number of things happened before "The" night. The easiest part of the whole thing was to get persons to take they parts and form the various commit-1 tees. Everybody just bubbled overl with a will to do and put thisj through. ! There was a "property gettingni committeeg a stage managing com-g mittee: and an advertising and tick-1 et committee neededg as well as oneg for musict The costumes were found to be so simple as to compel us to make them through sheer, wanting to help all we could, and so what did some of our girls do but volunteer to make everything needed. Wasn't that fine? Did you ever see such a. spirit? And to think they were made, and so well thatl some thought them hired, as is the general custom. Miss Amberson. the Domestic Science instructor, un dertook to "boss" this job and it cer- tainly was done very successfully. But the scenery! We are no ar- tists. We could never paint or con-5 struct scenery that would be goodi enough for that. Oh! such pessi-' mistic remarks. Little did we think we could do when someone thought of the ln- dustrial Arts department and the Craft Club. With the vision of its. wonderful worker, Miss Greenlaw,' there was, and could not be, any' hesitancy whatsoever as to the re- sponse. And folks-what do you think she did? Refuse? I should say notg she and our committee rose to the occasion in much the same manner that a. cabinet has, when it declares its support to its President. And did those people work? Yon' should have peeped in on them. Yong would have seen girls in bloomers, climbing ladders and swish-swishing with paint brushes with all the vig- or of a whole-hearted senior. By the way, wasn't the 'finished product I 1 1 I , I . Fan astounding surprise? Folks do say it was. If you had ventured back of the "stage" door you would have seen other girls "pulling the ropes" so as to get the knackg and not let something fall on those who would be acting. Oh! we had our fun and otherwise. Sometimes if a rope or its manager were not quite in gear the whole scenery woulrd tumble in, but did we stop for that? No indeed! We straightened it up and went on conhdently--weren't we real sports? Of course you couldn't help but notice the honest art of the whole effect. Back of it are a few secrets. One big one was Mr. Davis, a Junior, who actually jumped at the oppor- tunity of being our electrician. I leave you to judge of his work. Those humans who have so much time with which to do as they wish say that one should have a bit of poetry, Aa laugh or two and a jolly good song, each day, to keep the blues away. Speaking of music- does a Normal student ever think of music without connecting it with Miss Sliurtz. l'm positive he doesn't especially after the way she helped the senior chorus get ready. Co- operation! Teamwork! Neither the instructor nor the girls "can be beat." What made people want to come anyway? Just because it was at Normal? I don't think so. I be- lieve it was partly that effervescent advertising committee. You can vouch with us, they were ever- on the job. Now, weren't they? Who was your coach? Did I hear someone ask? Why, such a ques- tion, Miss Munn, of course. How could we do without her? She sure- ly can and does put one in his right place, at the right time land makes him stay there too.J But the cast. Did you ever see its equal! Everybody who saw them declares them simply wonderful. To see one transform herself from the tender age of a maiden to that of a hungry, forlorn old womang to see another act as a jolly old uncle was really great. But those two little "boys." Do you still remember them? That little one who dressed in red and was just ,as full of fun and questions as he' could stick, while the other one was as thought- ful as he could be. I have said be- fore these were from M. S. N. S. ls that suiiicient? Honestly, .my patient reader, in the final tableau, when everything came to a climax and those chimes really rang, folks had tears trickling down their cheeks. You know what a success it truly must have been. Wasn't it a most fascinating and "Christmas getting spirit" of a play you would want to see? You say you like it? We are all so glad you did. Come again. TOOT, TOOT, HUM, HUM, BANG! It's Monday night again: who could doubt it when he enters the Administration Building and hears Ol-11' Splendid orchestra. Everyone knows that Monday night is get apart for Orchestra rehearsal: not one hour but two, and then time is all too short for the work and the joy we get out of those reahersals. Early in the year when a Normal Orchestra was suggested, a few timid souls thought they might like to play but were not very enthusi- astic. We had a drummer but no drums. a cornetist with a worncut cornet. two or three violins and an accompanist or two. These things in themselves would not make much of an orchestra, but the spirit and how that spirit grew! ' Miss Shurtz was not willing to let anyone who might apply take the directorship of her embryo orches- tra, so rehearsals were delayed un- til she secured Mr. Schoenfelder. Then we made up for lost time! The music department took over the li- nancial burden of some new instru- ments as school property. Individ- uals bought violins, a saxophone. the worn out cornet was replaced by a splendid new one. This was made possible by an agreement be- tween the cornetist and the depart- lment. One of the very interesting facts about our orchestra is, that although there are but seventeen boys en- rolled in the school, we have live of these in the orchestra as regulars, .with tive girls. Each rehearsal finds three or four faithful friends who do not yet own an instrument on play, but who want the hours of good music with their friends. I . So it is, that each Monday night we gather from all corners of the 'Campus for practice. Practice for what? We intend to offer our ser- vices to the Glee Club very soon and suggest that we go into partnership with them for the Annual Concert, heretofore given by the Glee Club and a professional artist. We hope. too, that as we work, t-here will be many calls for ,en the spirits land to flll in lneeded. . i R.

The oriole is a medium sized, well proportioned and beautifully plum- aged bird found most frequently in Maryland. although its range is as far north as the southern boundary of Canada. But it is best known as a songster and an architect. Its notes have a range. a harmony, a lilting joy that no other bird can compass. The Baltimore oriole, our State representative, the architect, truly has high ideals. He builds strong and beautifully on a. sure foundation. As this bird is, so, we believe, its namesake, our paper, will be: ms- dium in size, well proportioned, clothed only in beautiful and worth- while theughts, its circulation most numerous in our own State, the State Normal songster, having a range as wide as that of its feath- ered counterpart. We believe that its notes will always be a joy and inspiration. Ideals such as are represented in Our Oriole's home are the things we shall strive for, the things just beyond, over the next ridge, which will make for better education, education that means ser- vlce and "co-operative living." A A. L. M. 'IEE GROWTH OF STUDENT GOVERNMENT. The class of 1921 deserves a great deal of credit for ,having startled student government on its way but the classes of 1922 and 1923 de- serve more credlt, for the fact that student government still exists and is progressing. Early in the spring of 1921 Mlss Tall gave us several talks showing the ditterence between a democratic responsible student body governing themselves versus a benign despot- ism on the part of the faculty. In- vestigation and study by s. group of interested students developed an as-' sembly at which Mr. Walter Cole, president of Student Organization at the University of Maryland. Col- lege Park, explained their system of student government. The same morning students gave reports of student governments ot other Wlu Noi Now? A p i fs-as 4 ,If Ax I I, l i-.

The girls were afraid -fearful of responsibility. We cou1dn't discuss the question for- ever so the day came, girls voted for it ,girls voted against it. Student government was rejected! In the meantime a committee was appoint- ed and a. constitution was drawn up. At the same time student govern- ment was rejected, the constitution was rejected. The leaders them- selves in the student body got to- gether and began healthy propa- ganda which resulted in the stu- dents having a second chance to vote on the plan. This time it was accepted. Ofhcers were elected and student government started on its way. There were several projects to begin work upon-care ot the lawns and groundsg responsible care of rooms: cafe of the mailg plan- ning a welcome to the new students: and assisting the social director in the students and their callers to have an attractive home atmosphere. School closed, everyone went away feeling that a new era had started for the Maryland State Normal School. During the summer through the student government organization letters of welcome were sent to every new student. School opened again on September thirteenth. Girls. and boys 'came flocking in and were made welcome by the old glrls. Council meetings were held every Wednesday night. We discussed and decided on the best methods for 'the Iife ot the girls and boys together Ln the resi- dence hallsg standards of conduct were set up. The organization be- gan to seek new ways of assisting the Social Director, members of the staff and the principal. The one piece of work for the year that was settled upon for con- centration of effort was the new regulation for study hours. The procter system helped to develop s. working organization. It has not been wholly successful but we mean to push on until the goal of having candidates oder themselves for election is reached. We expect that the time will come when students will feel it an honor to act as a ,procter. This is the process of evo- lution which all student organiza- tions have to go through. We be- lieve our goal is in sight. D. DUDDERAR., Sr. III. First Stranger Cat a partyi- "Slow, isn't lt?" ' Second Stranger--"Yes, very.',' First Stranger-"Let's go home." Second Stranger-"I mn't.

What is the State Normal Glee Club-doing? No one at school would ask that question. It isn't neces- sary, the Glee Club speaks for it- selfg on every Thursday after- noon one can hear the mingled tones of boys' and girls' voices fairly filling the building with melody. This year we have a big addition to the old Glee Club of last year. Many Junior girls are joining with the Seniors in taking an active part. and the boys too dually decided that they needed the Glee Club and the Glee Club needed them. Altogether we now have 65 members with Miss Shurtz director, and Miss Spicer, ac- companlst. Besides the pleasure of learning to sing and singing, which the Glee Club affords its members. there is a higher goal toward which we are workingg that is a series of concerts which will be given in the spring. Since the beginning of the year our chief work has been on two, three, and four part selections suitable for' the concert. The members are to wwn their own copies of this music. But it takes practice, practice, and more practice to accomplish Om' Dui'- pose, and although the director has already broken two batons in her ef- forts to keep us all singing together we are going to prove that those two batons were not broken ln vain. n Louise, upon approaching the place where she expected to- loin Evelyn on a hiking party, heard the shrill notes of a bird's warble and said: "Why, that must be a peacock l hear!" x X L- T.

Since we returned we are planning to have story-telling every Friday afternoon between 2.30 and 3.00 o'clock. This not only gives pleasure to the children,Abut helps the students in learning how to tell interesting stories and to know what -kind of stories interest children. Our Librarian is a busy person. lHer work consists of book ordering 'and book selection with the aid of our Faculty, making the daily rec- ords and charging, reference work, L I 1 etc. The daily work cannot be de-f scribed fully in such a brief com- pass, but every morning the books are returned and then they are shelved with the utmost care so as to avoid confusion. When new books are received, they have to be classiiied, catalogued, accessioned and prepared. During the Christ- mas holidays, what do you think? Our Librarian was new, and, do you know, she worked every day makingl an inventory of all the books that were in the library, as well as those' that were missing. A daily record is kept of how many books are taken out of the Library, as well as the number of students that come in every day to do their lessons. ,These numbers would stafrtle you for really you don't realiie how in- dustrious most of our students are. Later on, our Librarian will give class instruction in library methods. These classes will be very helpful, especially to those who have as much research work as we have.

Section four of the Junior class has, in connection with their writ- ten composition work, taken as its project to gather and make perma- nent the concrete material concern- ing the history of the Normal School. The members of this section with Miss Timberlake feel that by doing this we are not only going to be helped ourselves but that our work will be a benefit to others in several ways. To the students now attend- ing the school we hope to bring a greater love, respect and apprecia- tion for the school. To those outside the school we hope to give an idea of what a truly great and worth- while institution the Normal School is and how it became such. We feel that we have been very fortunate in collecting and learning things ,concerning Hour project. Members of this section are plan- ning to interview some of the fol- lowing people to get information: Mrs. Newell, twife of Dr. Newell, the first principal of the schoolig Miss Richmond, Csister of the late Miss Richmond, former princlpa-lip Miss Van Bibber, Miss Scarborough. Miss Snyder Call of whom have for some time, been connected with the schoollg Miss Tall, fthe present principalj, and .former graduates. Together with the interviews we are going to consult the writings left to the school by Miss Richmond, the addresses made by Mr. Linthicum and several other similar addresses made by prominent people at the time of the dedication of the pres- ent Normal School buildings, and some of the early catalogues. A letter was also published in "The Sun" asking for information. We hope to complete and be able to publish a part or all of this his- tory in a later issue of this paper and we hope that those who read it will receive some bienedt from our work and enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy writing it.

Ina Herrmann. Did you ever sit alone with your thoughts and build your dream house? Did you ever picture just how you wanted every detail, even to the hangings at the windows and the range in the kitchen? It is a wonderful place. your dream house. but not nearly so wonderful as the one planned by the Seniors and boys and girls of the Elementary School. Would you like to know all about our dream house? Since I cannot hear your answer I will as- sume that you are saying, "Yes," and will go on with my story. Last year the school over at Ridge built a house as a project in Indus- trial Arts. This year Miss Greenlaw decided to plan a similar project, making it the basis for the Seniors' drst term of work. Early in' the term she took us all out to Ridge to see the type of house built there. and to show us what our work would be. We all came back full of enthusiasm and eager to begin. As is always necessary, the plans had to be drawn up, and this is where we had a chance to express on paper our individuality. Under the efficient guidance of Miss Green- law, the plans were 'dually complet- ed, and submitted to the Elemen- tary School for approval. Those drawn by Miss Resh and Miss Lau- rina Smith were selected, as each had certain features that appealed to thezn. The final plan calls for a two- room house, ten by twenty. Is any house today complete without a fire- place-? We do not think so, for on every plan handed in, one had been drawn. Sometime in the not far distant future, you may come in and warm yourselves at our 'tire-place. With the completion of the plans we were ready to begin the work necessary for the building of our house. The work was apportioned to different groups. each group working certain periods during the week. There were three or four Seniors to a group, each Senior hav- ing an assistant from the grades. One group dug the cellar, another made the form for the concrete foun- dation, another mixed the cement. another moved the frame from the wall. Each one had his part even to the little tots in the nrst and sec- ond grades. They eagerly picked up stones for the foundation and helped to haul away the dirt. They too, sawed twenty of the eight inch blocks which were used to keep the form in place. When the weather was inclement, work was done inside. This work was of great value to us, because Fountain Pens at HERGENRATBER 'S l 1 I 6 ! l I we acquired a certain skill with saw ,hammer and nails which we otherwise would not have attained. Of course the saws buckled, and the hammers refused to hit the nails, but that was all ln a day's work, and at last we were victorious. Perhaps there is a question as to the value of this work and as to its bearing on school work. Given an interesting problem, with an appar- ent reason for its solution, how easy it is to get down to work on it and solve it. The children are vi- tally interested in the house, and naturally all sorts of problems arise that they must solve. They feel their lack and immediately set about to learn how to correct it. The amount of cement and sand for the concrete had to be figured out, and this gave an excellent opportunity for teaching cubic measure. The amount of lumber to be used had to be estimated, and there was the need for learning board measure. The fire place had to be constructed and the Seventh Grade saw a rea- son for geometry. The measuring necessary before the excavating was done, provided drill in linear meas- ure and the use of the tape. After the foundation was nnlshed, work was at a standstill because of lack of funds. The problem of earning money to carry on the project now confronted us, but all rose to the occasion, and Miss Stone has in bank two hun- dred dollars. The scholars of the Elementary School solicited sub- scriptions for magazines, and real- ized a nice sum in this way. There was a Penny Dance given by the Seniors. The music room was taste- fully decorated, and by the use of crepe paper, shaded lights, easy chairs, sofa cushions and pennants was quite transformed. Music was furnished free of charge by a friend. On the afternoon of December ninth, a bazaar was held in the l worth while problems growing out of this interesting work. The school work will be made concrete, for all the subjects in the curriculum will be related to this project. Think Of U19 Work in the open air, where exercise-ls afforded for the big mus- cles which are so essential to life. This is the type of work that is worth while, and we are hoping to Convert any Skeptics in our midst who question the value of it. , 'THEY stood in the moonlight .to- gether, The sky was studded with stars, She stood in silence beside him While he lowered for her the fence bars.

That was the night that the en- tire student body of State Normal toured Towson singing Christmas carols. A few days before a notice had been put in the papers saying that the students would sing carols in front of every house in Towson that had a lighted candle in its win- dow, This plan worked very well at nrst but soon there were so many houses and so many lighted candles that we just had to sing all the time. while we were walking. Occasionally an automobile with some of the faculty in it would catch up to us and inquire if anyone had frozen by the wayside, but more of- ten we left the machine so far be- hind that it would whisk around a short cut to catch up to us. At many of the places where we stopped to sing, the people crowded out on their porches and asked us to sing certain other carols. Some of the carols sung that night were: Oh. Little Town of Bethlehem, ,Silent Night. The First Nowell. Cautique de Noel, Christmas Day in the Morning and Christmas Eve. Miss Shurtz planned and directed the carol sing- ln . it was a mighty cold bunch of girls and boys who hustled into the Dormitory at about 10 o'clock, to get warm, but if our audiences in Towson enjoyed the evening as much as we did l'm sure we will be ready wth some even better music1 next year on the night before Nor- mal closes for the Christmas holi-I days.

The old adage, "Every day brings something new," surely is trug gf 'Education Each term schedule for 'Senior III brings some new course lover which we all scratch our heads land try to imagine what it can be ,like. Really, we thought we had Estudied something of every phase of lliducation but still our new sched- iule showed "Ed. M." What can fthis possibly mean, was the question in each girl's mind. We made all sorts of vague guesses until at last the time came for our drst lesson in this unknown subject. i Here it was that we found the real meaning of "Ed. M."-Educa- -tional Measurements. At iirst we thought ourselves terribly ignorant not to have known what the letters meant but. oh! how relieved we were when Miss Birdsong. our instructor. told us that it was a very new course in the field of education. i The aim of this course is to ex- tamine and learn to give reliable sand standard ways of measuring the intelligence of pupds. After sever- al very interesting discussions and .experiments we found teacher's -marks to be very inaccurate. The ,same teacher will, at various times, igrade the very same paper different- ily. Her marks will show Huctua- ftions. Some conditions which con- ltribute to the inaccuracy of a ,teacher's marks are errors due to tthe unequal value of questions and ithe neglect of the rate of doing lwork. We can readily see then that there is a great need for some stand- .ard by which the teacher may test her pupils. - There are at present many stand- -ardized tests, among which are The LBinet Simon Test, Monroe's Silent fReading Test, and The Courtis Si- lent Reading Test, No. II. We have been discusing these tests, us- iing the following reference books: Qlleasuring the Results of Teach- ing-Monroe, Intelligence of School 'Children-Terman, Modern Educa- tion-Parker, and How to Measure -Wilson and Hoke. : Later on in our course Sr. III lexpects to do some laboratory work fin the Practice School.

From the issue for May, 1867, we quote the, account of a spelling , match: . A SPELLING MATCH. ' "The young ladies of Grammar School"No. 2 challenged the young gentlemen of Grammar School No. 1,ADistrict No. 1, Washington Co.. to a battle in spelling, it ii' ii i' 'F ."This arrangement being agreed upon, the battle was commenced at 2 o'clock P. .M. and lasted three hours. At the conclusion it was considered a draw fight, there be- ing .five on each side surviving, hav- ing,.spelled correctly 13,000 words. There was no one on either side over fifteen years of age and one of the victorious champions was a lit- tle lad of nine." rl wonder how well the present Normal School students could have competed with these grammar school pupils in- 1867!

This time we will tell of the work of the very lowest grades in the school. The little people of the nrst and second grades have made a set of rules to govern their be- havior on the street cars. Is not this interesting? 1. Do not talk to the motorman. 2. Give old ladies seats. ' Give ladies with babies seats. Give old men seats. 3. Be quiet and orderly. 4. Don't go in front of the cars. Look before getting on. . Have right change. 7. Wait until car stops before get- ting off. They also have been writing poetry, real poetry, in the Second Grade. These are some of the pieces composed by the Second Grade chil- dren: 5. 6 Once a great, brave snowman Stood upon the snow Watching the little snowflakes go. I never saw a snowman brave as the one in our yard. JACK BYRNE, 2nd G. Pretty little snowflakes Falling from the sky, So tender and so light, So tiny and so bright. HELEN RAINE, 2nd G. Little snowballs in the air, Flying, Whizzing everywhere. JACK BYRNE, 2nd G. Seven little snowflakes Coming in a row To the land of snow. FRANCES RULLMAN, ind G. -I Mrs. M. A. Newell tells of early days. Fifty-six years ago. January 15. 1866, the' Maryland State Normal School first opened its doors. With eleven students and one teacher, the work began in a small room on the second fioor of Red Men's Hall on Paca Street, adjacent to the Lexing- ton Market. Mrs. Newell paid a glowing trib- ute to the wisdom and foresight of Dr .Van Bokkelen and Dr. M. A. Newell, whose untiring efforts led to the establishment of the school which was to be "the keystone ip the arch of common school educa- tion in the State of Maryland." She urged the. students to appre- ciate their' advantages today. and to realize that, although there is now nothing tangible left, of, the old school, the same ideals which in- spired the founder still live and grow in his worthy successor. January 20, 1922. Miss Alice Munn, State Normal School, Towson, Maryland. 3 Dear Miss Munn: 3 I am greatly interested to know that you are launching a school journal at' 'the Maryland Normal School. l have been impressed with the splendid development that is go- ing on at Towson. It seems to me that the institution, is gneeting. with un- usual success in 'its efforts to prepare competent teachers for the schools of Maryland. Personally, I'believe that this is the highest form of ser- vice that any educational institution can render. The welfare of the State and Nation depends upon good teachers not only in a few schools but in all schools: not only in the towns and cities but in the open country: not only in the high school or the primary school, but on all lev- els of instruction. The respect of the public for the work of the teach- er is gl'0WiHg. Successful effort in this field is receiving more extend- ed recognition and more attractive material rewards than ever before. Young men and young women who wish to enter a profession of which the keynote is service may well con- sider the opportunities that teach- ing now offers. I am confident thai these opportunities are not excelled by any other occupation. Cordially yours, ' - . ' L AYV. C. BAGLEY. x 3 5 fo 0 49 ' fffff' '1f'J,,, .

We have learned in our Psychol- ogy Class, through experiments that all individuals are alike in that they profit by practice: that they show greater gain at the beginning of practice than at any later timeg and that the rate of improvement is ir- regular, some periods showing re- markable gain, others a decided drop in the learning curve, and a decrease in improvement. In study- ing individuals, we find they diner as to initial efficency, final efficien- cy, and the amount of improvement resulting from any amount of prac- tice. Let us now consider the causes of these individual differences. We may think of a human being first of all, as being produced by the two factors, heredity and environment. He is only a living organism that reacts to any situation that confronts him in life. The situations in his environment are the immedate causes of his reactions and the laws of the organism determine what ,those reactions will be. We may say again, that situation tenviron- mentl is the cause of a reaction but the innate make-up of the individ- ual theredltyl determines what the reaction shall be. In teaching chil- dren, we must consider that heredity and environment, the make-up of the child, have a great tendency to promote or hinder the growth of their intellectual power. The two factors mentioned, hered- ity and environment, are important in studying the individual differences of children. It is important that we know something of these causes of individual differences, because we obtain a better knowledge of just what the child is capable of do- ing dally, in his school work, Still there is another reason why individuals differ: that is because of previous training. Trainng may be thought of in this connection as the habits which the individual has ac- cumulated irom previous experi- CIICCS. Those having previous training 'plus original nature, given them by this heredity, are endowed with a higher initial and final efhcency. ,Every time we react to u situation Iwi- add to and strengthen our men- tul make-up. So what wc do at any moment in lite, is due to these three i'ucLm's, the situaton confrontng us. our own original nature, inherited from our ancestors, and our own ac- :quirr-d habits thc result of previous :a'XIlf4l'l6'IlCPl-B. School Supplies :tt HERGEN RATHER 'S I r DOES PSYCHOLOGY HELP ,US IN EVERY PHASE OF LIFE? Although having had but a short course in Psychology, one can see how it does help us in every phase and mode of life. The most important place of psy- chology is in the teaching and train- ing of children. This is true of both home and school life. No teacher can do effective or successful teach- ing without applying psychology. The knowledge of psychology helps the teacher to understand different types of children, how to deal with these children, and how to control and develop the various instincts in the right way. She can determine if a child is accomplishing what he is capable of by giving intelligence tests. Then if a child is doing poor work, by giving him various tests and by close observance she can find out whether he is mentally or phy- sically deficient, if it is lack ot in- terest or if she herself is to blame. In this way she not only helps the child but improves her teaching. Moreover, psychology is the great- est aid tous in all our studies chief- ly because we are able to reason wisely, have better judgment, and use the most efliclent methods of learning. If it is a help to pupils, and at help to teachers training children, it is of greater importance that the mother who has the care and mold- ing of the child from birth should know psychology. The child's life in the hands of the mother is like the clay and marble in the hands of the sculptor. As, the sculptor needs his technique to accomplish something beautiful and be success- ful so also does the mother need that technique in the training of children which psychology furnishes her. Therefore if it is a help to teach- ers, to pupils, to our associates, and to mothers, it is a help to all of us in every day life. I GUESS I ALWAYS WILL. When I was just real little, l always wondered why The cat could purr, the dog could bark And I could laugh and cry. I wondered how the wind could blow, And how the frogs could jump, And when I saw a camel, first, I questioned, "Why the hump?" I didu't see how birds could slug With such a little mouth, And what the grown-up people meant By nm-th, east, west and south. So on I came from day to day, Climbing lll'e's steep hill, Always asking questions, And I guess I always will.

As teachers. going out to work in the elementary schools of Maryland. it is necessary that we understand something of the nature of the small child and the kind of stories that he will enjoy. In considering the stories for the elementary school. we first con- sidered fairy stories. We dis- cussed the values of fairy stories. the kind of storfes that should be chosen for early grades and then for two or three days turned the class into a story telling group and reveled in the beauties of Grimm. Pierault and Dasant. After we had devoted a day or two to the discussion of hero tales and myths. we told some of these stories in class, trying to make be- lieve that We were mere little chil- dren listening to the wonderful ad- ventures of Pandora or Arachue.

I think the hair pin is the limit-and any girl who has had any experience with these weapons will back me in this statement. In t?'e first place-they have a most successful way of losing them- selves-particularly those innocent looking "invisibles." and once lost. fhev're lost! Having successfully ,secreted themselves in some un- thought of nook-they may be the cause of a declaration of War-for you always declare that your room- mate has taken them-and nine times out of ten. she has! But at any rate. they manage to break up any domestic tranquility that exists. Then. those huge wire spikes that we have to wear! lYhen seated com- fortably in church. did you ever feel one going straight through your head. and you just felt that if you didn't soon get your hat off, the ushers of the church would be es- corting you to the Sheppard-Pratt? Does a man ever have to suffer this agony? Of course not.-he doesn't have to wear the "animals" Ilthink of all the species, the bone ones are really the kindest. they're not so very easy to lose, and they are a little careful about how they stick you-but they do manage to get broken so easily. and they cost money. What do men have to spend money for. anyhow, they don't use haiipins or nets? I don't know who invented hair- pins-but whoever did surely had a wicked grudge against woman-kind. There must be a more humane way of keepin' one's hair in place than by the use of those cruel wires and bone implements. After I finish Normal, I intend to devote the re- mainder of my life to the scientiiic study of "hairpins." and I'm sure if I am successful in inventing some less painful method of managing contrary hair. my name will be in "Who's Who In Americof' or else girls are mighty ungrateful Wretches.

The Story Tellers League of Bal-' timore City is planning an exhibit of 47Y'ildren's books to be held in the Peabody Art Gallery of Baltimore. from November 23 to December 4. A number of publishers have been good enough to send children's books for this exhibit. The exhibit will be open each day from 10 A. M. to 5 P. M. and the public is cordially invited t0 attend. A bibliography of children's books has been pre- pared. Miss Osborne and Miss Stone of our school, are on the committee for preparing a bibliograohv of books to be read to and by children.

There are so many interesting plans being worked out all the time, that 'every one is kept busy. Have you Lbeen keeping up with the Elemen- tary School lately? lf not, just read a few events which have been going on there, On Tuesday, October 30, Miss Buckley's classes, the third and fourth grades. gave aHallowe'en party,i nthe Elementary Assembly of the Elementary School from one to two o'clock. Invitations were sent to Miss Stone, the teachers, 'and the First and Second grades. At the beginning of the party the chil- ,dren were seated on the door while they sang a Hallowe'en song and 'listened to a story. Then the chil- dren played games out doors. Soon every one was invited in to have re- freshments. We all had a lovely time at this party. Don't you wish you could have been there? I suppose you saw the health play given by the lower grades, under t'-e direction of Miss Carey. Miss Carev came to us from a child's health organization, and planned a nlav with the children, which would initiate an interest in health educa- tion. ln. the play the children sang songs which told of health rules to be obeyed every dav. The first grade children cleverly represented little children going to bed early with windows open. The second grade children drank milk and the third grade said they ate oatmeal everyday. The fourth grade repre- sented school children, while the fifth grade represented the vegeta- ble men. The children had very lit- tle work on this play, in fact, only about three ten minute rehearsals. Doesn't it seem interesting that the children gain more knowledge of the health rules from this .form of plav activity than reading facts from books? On Friday evening, November 3, the monthly meeting of the Te-Pa- Chi Club was held in the Elemen- tary Assembly. The meeting was called to order by the president, Mr. Sneeringer. Miss Tall gave a'talk on differences in skill, attitudes, ideals and the physical characteris- tics of the child. It is the business of the school and the home to lead to a steady growth along QI of these ilines. For example, the Salutation not he H Deffeffl SOUSSIOF- D0n'b'of the dag should become to children forget your duty! Why not estab- lish a name for yourselves by being a 100 per cent. friend of the Oriole in our December issue? Remember it's calling you Juniors, and you and you. Betty Worthington, Advertising Manager, '23. Ia ceremony in honor of some worthy ,citizen ot' our country. Another good point brought out in this talk was that all children should know parliamentary procedure. Children lshould begin in the lower grades to conduct meetings, assuming all re- sponsibilities. Then too, the child 1 :should early begin to have civic re- sponsibility in caring for the ap- pearance of school property and keeping the grounds in good condi- tion. Courtesy and responsibility should be developed in the very young child. If a child of twelve rises when some one older than he enters the room, waits quietly for sonic privilege, gives his seat in a crowded place to some older per- son, then we know that this child has had training in courtesy in his younger life. The parents were given outlines of desirable habits and attitudes for good citizenship in the Elementary School, with the request that they check and return these to Miss Stone within the next few days. From these outlines a list of desirable habits and attitudes is to be made. The teachers and parents will work together with the children and form new plans or improve old ones to henetit the school. On Friday, November 10, we cele- brated Armistice Day in the Elemen- tary School. Among the important events of this celebration was the flag salutation, singing patriotic songs, and a talk by Miss Cooley. ln the third grade, iMiss Hillhouse teacher,J the children are going to work out an interesting history pro- ject. If you Walk in this room you will see logs sawed in a pile of uni- form lengths and other logs to be lsawed. The children are going to make a log cabin. If you think they're not good carpenters and in- terest is lacking, then just take a peep in the third grade room some morning between eleven thirty and twelve o'clock. The fourth grade Wrote a Viking play in history class. They present- ed the play to the Elementary School on Monday, November 13. I have told you some of the hap- pening in the Elementary School. This is a happy, as well as a busy place, and one in which we find an interesting place to work. As time goes on the problems progress into units of' successful work. Elizabeth Anderson, Sr. I.

The History Club of the Maryland State Normal School met for the first time on October 7, 1921. This year the aim of the club is to study historical Maryland. At each meet- ing a talk is given about a county by some one representing his local- ity. It is very interesting to learn of the old homes, mansions, churches that are in our own State, that we could easily visit if we just knew where to find them. The data col- lected at each meeting is kept on file. During the last month of the year the club will reorganize th,e material in order to make a guide book for the people touring the State. In connection with the History Club we have a museum. Here will be found old spinning wheels, can- dle molds, old papers, letters, bits of lace, silver spoons, pictures and other things of interet. Many times in the teaching of history in the Elementary School these articles are used to illustrate and make real the times and customs which they repre- sent. Excursions are frequently taken to Historical Museums and historical places. The President of the Club is Marie Frantz, of Baltimore Countyg vice- president, Naomi Pritchett, of Balti- more Countyg secretary and treas- urer, Mary Margaret Mills, of Dor- chester County. Miss Pritchett is keeper of the museum. There are students from the fol- lowing Counties in the club: Dor- chester, Frederick, Kent, Baltimore, Caroline, Carroll, Wicomico, Cal- vert, Harford, Queen Anne, Somer- set, Anne Arundel, Talbot and Mont- gomery.

We know that is not only enjoyable but bene- dcial from the fact that when the music stops we feel refreshed and ready to go to work with new zest. But such supreme moments in .music require not only very effec- tive musical perfogmance of truly artistic music but require perception and sensitiveness on the part of the listener, two conditions that we are not always able to combine. And while we are constantly striving to improve our knowledge and percep- tion of music so that we can make this artistic use .4 more common 5-i perhaps more rate, and that is a language.

The most important thing that she is directing at pres- ,ent is the presentation of a charm- fing wall picture of the two Normal 1School buildings to the High Schools ot' the State. The plan has been lto write to the principal of each High School and say that the stu- ,dents have appointed one ot' their jnumber from his school to appear at fan assembly on a certain date, if ,he thinks it worth while. The prin- ,cipals have been most courteous and 'appreciative and have co-operated to ithe utmost. even to the selection of ftho space where the picture shall hang. Their letters show splendid "1-sprit de corps" which means worthwhile contacts for the Normal School and the State. The presen- tation students takc the pictures to thc schools when they go homo fm- week-end vacations. Miss Tall hopes to have picturcs in one hun- ,dred lligh Schools by the end of March. The presentation of thc picturcs is indeed a part of the In- rrcascd l-Enrollment Vampaign, ho- rausc it is conducted by the students. i I l i . i 1 l i I I As a part of the Campaign ,these members of the staff, Misses Dow- ell, Van Bibber, Munn, Birdsong and Mr. Dunkle will tour the 'State in March. Our principal expects to attend the Chicago Meeting of the Depart- ment of Superintendence. The Na- tional Council of Normal 'School Presidents meets February 24 and 25. The Department meetings will he held the following week. Just now the Legislative cam- paign to secure a new dormitory for the Normal School is on and this is claiming a great deal of Miss Tal1's time. The Alumni Association, the Tepachi Club, the Towson Town Club and the students are urging the Legislature to continue the plan that was originally made when the school was built. The combined ad- ministration and teaching building, which will provide for thefinstruc- tion of 600 students, was built as a complete unit. The present dormi- tory was constructed as the first unit of a group, to -be duplicated or added to when the conditions so re- quired. Has not this time arrived? Look for a moment at the enrollment for the past three years and the proposed enrollment for the next two years: 1919-20-130 Students 1920-21-234 Students 1921-22-380 Students 1922-23--500 tProposedJ 1923-24-600 tProposedj The Normal School Students think that the time has arrived and in or- der to help make the campaign suc- cessful, they are going to Annapolis. Here they will "camp on the trail" of the Legislators so that Governor Ritchie's "GOO strong" .will have suitable surroundings in which to do efficient work. B. A. W., '22, C. E.

How can you teach lessons without teach- ing them to somebody? There is only -one answer: you teach both children and lessons." "Yes, I have heard before that this question is stupid, but some- how it won't let me go. Suppose I ask it in another form: Which should'I care most about, the chil- dren or the Course of Study?" I ' "I don't know what you mean?" "Well, which troubles me most, whether my pupils fail to grow, or whether I get behind on the Course -of Study?" plete the Course of Study. That's what 'it's for. It tells me how far I have to go in a.term. I mustn't let my pupils fall behind." "Then which are you thinking most about, your pupils and how they get on, or the Course of Study and whether it is completed?" - "I don't seem to get your mean- iing? My pupils get on as fast as they should when they keep up with the Course of Study." ' "Then you think about your pu- pils' work to see if they are keep- ing up with the Course of Study and for- nothing' else?" "I suppose so. Ylfhat else should I think about?" "Does the Course of ,Study in- clude all that your pupils should learn in school?" "How do I know? I teach as best I can whatever is in the Course of Study. I don't think it's my bus- iness to go beyond that." "Is there any dilierence between learning history and learning to like history?" Y "Certainly, though I think one who learns his history well is more likely to like it." "'Which do you teach, history or to like history?" ' "I-Iistoryf' "Do you care whether the chil-I dren like it or not?"f ' ' "Certainly I care, but I can't teach it. How can I make them to like his- tory if they don't?" E "Have you ever tried?" "Yes, I've tried. That is. I have thought about it, but of course I can't makerthem like history or any of their lessons. I don't believe 1 ever exactly tried to make them like history." "Did you ever make any of your pupils hate history?" . "I certainly never tried to do so -but some of- them did. l am afraid." p "Arid-' you never tried to keep them from hating it? 1'll tell you what I think. 'There are many gthings for children to learn besides the lessons we teachers assign for them. To like history is only one among these. There are many oth- ers. And the trouble is, if We don't take care, that our children may learn them wrong, as a hate for his- tory. Now teachers who concern themselves about such things find their emphasis changing from les- Isons to children. They teach les- sons, yes, but they use the lessons as a conscious means to help the chil- dren. The way you answered my questions makes me fear that you are teaching lessons. but not chil- dren."

The impor-5 tant thing is not what the teacherf is doing but what the pupils are do-E ing. The most common criticism ofl our school practice is that it does! nothing but transmit facts: that it? does not develop the ability to think.Q Ing the above standard, "the acquisi- tion of knowledge is made snbordi-E nate to the development in pupilsy of the power to work independently., intelligently and economically." Thef school should give a training for3 life that will lit the individual tof do well the thing he undertakes,! no matter what that thing may be.f As an illustration of this a fourth! grade class, ajter,some ten weeks of work, completed a project en- titled, "Short Stories of Rhode Is- dence, Washington and Peggy Champlin at the Party, Esek Hop- kins the Brave Man, A Dialogue be- 'tween Roger YVillams and Waban in the Forest, and a Newport Lady's ,Diary in 1772. At the beginning of the undertak- ing two field trips were taken by the class to Prospect Terrace and Newtaconkanut Hill to give the chil- dren a bird's eye view of the histori- cal spots of the city. Later an- other trip was taken to the Esek 5Hopkius House, the children contrib- uting papers after each trip. The project anorded a. fresh pro- blem to the children, the solution of which was felt by them to be worth while. .Their class periods provided for the appreciation of the relative value of things. meaning the cultivation of good judgment.

Wright, '23, Hikes, dances, rallies! Thays the way to win a Scout and any gil-1 who is interested in these activities will be only too glad tg meet the other scout requirements, This, the old scouts had in mind when they chose a wonderful day as well as entertaining games and delicious "eats" for a scout party hike. One Friday afternoon the scouts taking lead, promised all followers as good a. time as Nature could give. After, a long hike over the country, up hill, through meadows, and elsewhere, a. halt was made in a wooded land where streams rippled by the grassy grounds. Around large fires the whole bunch crowded to enjoy the tempting menu. The evening air was soon filled with harmonic t?l voices as everyone sang of the joys of the time. On Armistice Day the scouts, af- ter giving the salute and pledge of allegiance to the flag, led in the singing of the "Star Spangled Ban- ner." This performance took place in front of the Administration Building at two minutes of twelve. October 7 was a day remembered by the old scouts as a fulfillment of the promise of a scouting trip to Camp Merrimarsh. This proved a Red Letter week-end to them. Al- though it rained, the fireplace was a cozy place where' an enjoyable morning was spent. The most in- teresting feature of the trip was the horseback riding, each girl taking her turn for rides. Mentioning eats-they could not be surpassed. The one big hope now is that the next camping trip will result in as happy a time. ' There was a dance given in the Auditorium which iwas enjoyed by the scouts and their guests. Every- one appreciated the work that Pa- trols I, V1 and - gave to make the evening a success. Patrols enjoy breakfast hikes- they are so characteristic of scouts. Early risers and swift walkers de- light in going to the woods and mak- ing big Iires over which to make a hearty breakfast. Everyone takes part in eating his full share. The Girl Scouts' Rally that was held at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore on Saturday, Decem- ber 17, was enjoyed by all of our scouts who attended. The total number of scouts present was one thousand. M. S. N. S. Scout organ- ization was represented by the Cap- tain and two other scouts. After the formation and roll call, salutes and singing of National songs fol- lowed. Merit badges were award- ed, after which all scouts took part in marching. For entertainment, the Western High School gave a play. This was followed by a ban- quet. There is a working side to our scout organization. An organization strong are we, Each day we do a turn To "Be Prepared" we all agree Respects and laws we learn. "Right dress!" We salute Miss Dowell as our captain! We have other otlicers toog business manager, secretary, treasurer, banner carrier and cheer leader. Proudly we say we have sixteen patrols, each feel- ing itself strongly bound by nine ambitious scouts. A leader and corporal, are all the necessary of- ficials of a patrol. We are not going to hesitate to sa we have dues which we willingly y . pay at our semi-monthly meetings- for money, you know, comes from the heart as well as the pockets of scouts. As a united group each member is working hard to pass the tender- foot, test which grades a girl as a second class scout. We can't tell how we are getting our uniforms ,but you'll be sur- prised when you see a scout organi- zation fully arrayed in khaki! It's a secret-and girl scouts keep se- crets! The girl scouts have a purpose For work they do each day But their reward is pleasure So the work to them is play. HISTORY. SENIOR ONE RESUMES REG- ULAR CLASSES. Senior One is again found in reg- ular classes. After twelve weeks in the practice school it is natural that they should be a bit rusty and a bit inclined to sit back and look on. Indeed, for the first few days they were as mum as oysters and rather given to assuming pained lexpres- sions at any attempt on the part of their teachers to arouse them from their lethargy. You see they found it hard to become ordinary subjects after so many weeks of sovereignty. But it was in history class that they were particularly lacking. Miss Van Bibber recognized the symp- toms and wishing to confirm her sus- picions before making a diagnosis, promptly woke them up by asking question numerous and sundry on current events. They woke up with a good, big start. They discovered to their astonishment that there was a disarmament conference sit- ting at Washington responsible for such bewildering terms as 4-Power Pact, Naval Holiday, and 5-5-3 ra- tio. They found too, that Lloyd George had finally succeeded in do- ing the impossible by presenting a , coax. at LUMBER co., Down's Wedding Invitations l JAS. H. DOWNS, Engraver 229 N. ohm-lee st., BALTIMORE treaty which the Sinn Feiners act- ually considered. After the first gasp which such breath-taking news brought forth, there was no holiday for Senior One. Everywhere were to be seen the erstwhile student teachers with ,newspapers in front of them, note- books to the right of them, maga- zines to the left of them eagerly searching for news. With what a shining light in their eye did they come back to History Class anxious to air their new-found knowledge. Miss Van Bibber was well nigh tbombarded with questions. Her ifacze was a study in self-control when some sweet, young thing in- nocently asked: "What kind of a. law is Bonar Law?" Even when this was followed by an equally in- nocent, "Who is Dail Eirann?" Did she preserve her equanimity, thus setting an admirable example to those few who were prone to show disgust at their classmate's ignor- ance? However not all of the time has been spent in Current Events. Sen- ior One has been deeply interested in the subject of civics and in find- ing such information as the mean- ing of Social Sciences and the names of Social Sciences and then finding out exactly what the terms juris- prudence and anthropology might be expected to mean. It was about this time that the encyclopedia sec- tion of the library looked like at bargain counter. This state of affairs' was fall ibrought about by a little plan which MissVStone presented to this devot- ed section during the first week. It looked quite simple-merely a mat- ter of working out an election that the practice school was to hold dur- ing the winter. But if Seniorl little thought that so commonplace an event as an election would cause any work on their part, they soon found out that what they did not know on this subject would amply fill several volumes. Now, however, the elaborate plan of procedure all worked out by Senior One has been given to Miss Stone and the class anxiously awaits the time when the election will take place. j.

Oh yes, this is one of the main activities of the Normal School. The coming of our seven- teen boys has made a great advance in all athletic activities. The girls always had very good athletics, but not as much interest was taken or was there the feeling of friendly ri- alry which has come into it now. Besides we have started 'an Athletic Association this year. This has brought about a much greater in- terest. . People ask us why athletics are necessary in a school. If they could only hear Dr. Burdick's lectures on .'The Value of Play,' I feel sure they would soon find out. Indeed, he has made us see and feel how necessary these activities are, not only for old- er boys and girls, but for the small children as well. I-Ie has given us very valuable lectures on 'Public Health' and 'Prevention of Diseases! 'This comes in our course called Physical Education. In Physical Training we learn the different folk dances, story plays and games for the playground and school-room. We not only learn these games and dances, but make original ones. 'This is the part we like so well. Miss Cook always has us try out our games ln the class room ln order to find out it the game or play contains different values. Occasionally we see one of our story plays or games tried out in the Practice School. ' My! We .can hardly wait until school is over in the evening. This 'is the time we 'play more strenuous games such as soccer, end ball, vol- ley ball, basketball, relays, and ten- nis. Miss Gaffney certainly makes' us play hard, but we enjoy it all the more. One of the games for the girls which has just been started in the State ls soccer. We won the -first game of girls' soccer played in -Maryland. The game was played between Towson High School and Normal School and Out of the three with other High won two. Although not made a great Maryland State the score 1-0. games played Schools, Normal our girls have name for themselves in soccer yet. they mean to kick the ball with de- termination from now on. Soon the name and tame of the Normal Girls' Soccer team will be heard through- out the State. H We have had some very good vol- ley ball games. We have contested with Towson, Franklin, Randalls- town and Ellicott City High Schools. The games were all full of pep, and our girls fought Well even though they won only two of the games. But--practice makes perfect and they arecoming to the front yet. Watch them! The boys have their 'main athletic! activities after school. Mr. Toiuch- stone has made them work hard. ,Tlggtt Normal They see where they made their bad plays and with his help can correct them . In the early part of the scholastic year soccer was the sea- son's greatest activity. The game last of the season was played with Tome, score 1-0 in favor of their team, We will still think about those most exciting games held on our soccer iield. On the whole, the season was a success, even though we lost eight games out of eleven. We can safely predict, each game lost this season, is a stepping stone to games which we'll win in future seasons. Last, but far from least, comes the boys' basketball. These games are so exciting and ythrilling that our yells almost deafen anyone who is near M. S. N. S., while a game is being played. Our basketball sea- son so far has been successful. We have won two games out of four. Each and everyone of the players deserve credit for his splendid work, but, let's say, Three Cheers for Kirby, for he has made the most baskets so far. Let tus apply our State Motto: "Cresclte et Multiplicaminf' to our Normal School which will in turn cause the advancement of our ath- letics in general. Our boys ands girls with great suc- cess Have helped athletics to progress, So with this year, long may it last may as years go past, stronger, and you say, what?" Athletic Day. E. W., '23. JUNIOR V-HYGIENE. Maxwell R. Sacra.. Junior V is one of the four junior sections assigned for Hygiene for this term, and we were very glad to revisit Miss Dowell, having attended her Biology course during the first term. YVe were greeted with a warning that it was necessary that Hygiene X-work be more strictly marked, with lheavier requirements, because un- like Biology, it is a part of the ele- mentary curriculum. In our first classes we saw very plainly that our knowledge of Biol- ogy was to be of value in the Hy- giene course. Tests, so pleasantly infrequent in Biology. are supplanted by a series of lfrequent, short, writ- ten lessons in Hygiene. Our tirst topic in Introduction was a good suggestion for linking- up our Biol- ogy work with lower forms, with the the physiology of man. The chap- ter on "Skin" was not nearly so in- teresting or instructive as the pres- ent one on "The Skeleton." The names, uses and locations of the many bones of our bodies brought surprising knowledge to all. The other morning we were very much surprised to see almost an en- tire 'human skeleton on the table in Grow bigger, , "Because of 1 front. of Our classroom. The most striking parts, seen at first glance. CODSISUUS of a skull and jaw-bone. the long leg and arm bones, a pile of vertebrae and another of ribs. The spectacle here presented could veritably be compared to the Scrip- tural "valley of dry bones." Upon coming into the room. various mem- bers ot the class maintained various attitudes toward this display. Some. very curious, began to examine and lit together parts of the skeleton. while others withdrew in horror. How will all this help to make fu.: better Elementary School teachers? Remember this is a continued story. AUTUMN AT AUNTY'S. Mother, take me out to Auntie. when the oaks are red in fall And the bright Virginia Creeper decks the pretty cottage wall.

L- f D I iii T f ELECTION IN THE NOR- MAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. The children of the Normal Ele- mentary School are building a house you know. This required consider- able funds so they held a bazar on December 9 and raised a very large sum of money. The sudden posses- sion of so large an amount present- ed a new difficulty. Who was to as- svme responsibility for the money? The children decided to elect a treasurer and secretary. Miss Van Bibber and the Seniors co-operated with them by organizing a plan for the election, making it, in so far as possible, like a County election. A nomination committee selected three nominees for each office. The primary election reduced the num- ber to two for each OfflC91 Douglas Reed and Jeannette Knight for treasurer. and Charlotte Black and Kitty Frametfor Secretary. The candidates were given the privilege of making electioneering speeches. Each candidate spoke for himself and a friend also spoke for him. Lillian Freburger spoke in behalf of Jeannette Knight and Wal- ter McPhail for Douglas Reed. On the 17th of January the elec- tion was held. Each child regis- tered on the roll book of the ele- mentary School had the privilege of voting. Clerks and judges were ap- pointed and the voting was done by secret ballot. The children went, one at a time, to a small booth, vot- ed, handed the ballot to the clerk, and returned to the classroom. Douglas Reed was elected treasur- er with Charlotte Black as secretary. L.

YVe have followed the course af- outlined in grammar, cfzmposition and literature Perhaps a few pieces of work which we did in literature will il- .ustrate the way in which we have attacked the problem. While the class was studying the contemporary poets individually sev- eral very interesting personal let- ters were received from poets of such note as Florence Earle Coates, Lizette Wordsworth Reese and Thomas A. Daley. These letters made them seem nearer to the class and will perhaps, be interesting to others. 2024 Spruce Street, Philadelphia. November 19. 1921. My Dear Miss Hetzch: lt has given me great pleasure to receive your letter, and l think you may best find what you wish in the notices l enclose. which were col- lected by my lublishers, the Hough- ton-Mitflin Company, of Boston.

One of the most interesting fea- tures of the English class room is the bulletin board: The class is re- quested to bring any interesting ar- ticle about, or poems by our con- temporary poets to beg posted here. This has gradually grown in impor- tance and now contains in addition to articles and poems, several pic- tures of poets whose life and poetry the class has studied. Shortly before Christmas the class decided that 'if any of the members were asked what they wanted for Christmas they would say books and that they would bring back with them their gifts for the rest of the class to -read. At the first meeting after Christmas we found that many interesting and valuable books had been received. Among others were Arnold Bennet's "How to Live Twenty-Four Hours a Day." Booth Tarkington's "The Magnificent Am- bersonsf' Palgrave's "Golden Treas- ury." Joseph Lincoln's "Shavings" and Service's "The Spell of the Yu- kon." 2926 Harford Ave., Balto.. Md..

I am very sorry and I do hope that you will understand and feel that I appreciate your in- terest in my verse and me.

On the afternoon of February 21. a triple quartette chosen from the Glee Club went to Annapolis with Miss 'Tall and several other faculty mem- bers to sing for the Legislators. At that time the State Normal movie "The Call of the Hour" was shown to the members of the Legislature and the Glee Clgb representatives furnished music at intermissions as well as before and afterward. The Normal has asked for, a. new .dormitory to relieve the crowded conditions here and the Glee Club--is -doing 'its best to sing its way to the hearts and pocketbooks of our State educational representatives and show them that the Normal School is worthy of their consideration.

Fearlessly and with hearts full of determination our boys fight fo! victory. The ball is tossed and the game is on. Breathlessly and fearfully we watch the ball as it approaches the basket. But this is not our basket. Oh the joy when we see the ball smoothly glide across the top, and fall, not in the basket. but on the other side. With a dart, France has it in his hand, and skilfully passes it to Kerby. The audience is on its feet, for we feel sure of a goal. With one true aim he shoots the ball through the basket. lt is then that the yells burst forth from the happy students of Normal. Point by point we watch the score grow.

From the very beautiful il- lustrations that were thrown on the screen and Mr. Pond's explanation of them We saw that beautiful colors and harmonious combinations of color are to be found everywhere in plant life. in animal life, in the vegetable kingdom, in dress, in ar- fchitecture, in artand in the land- scapes round about us. From the very well chosen pictures we saw that the seasons each have a very definite color tone, and that even very common things can be made sbeautiful withlthe right color com- binations. The study of color is one of the newest arts and is devel- oping very rapidly. This very interesting and helpful .lecture would not have been possi- ble without a darkened room. This had been arranged by Section B, of ,Junior I, under Miss Greenlaw's su- jpervision. Curtains had been made 'from heavy paper and arranged on ,pulleys so as to cover the entire Iwindow and exclude the light. j Another assembly that deserves ihonorable mention was the "Tann- ll13llS8l"' program given by Junior I with the aid of Miss Shurtz, Miss Spicer and Miss Shroeder. This in- cluded "The History of Opera" by ,Miss Oglet. "The Life of Richard Wagner. by Miss Treut. the story of the opera-"Tanuhauser" by Miss iWhaland, vocal selections by Miss ISchroeder. piano selections by Miss ,Spicer-, and the "Pilgrim's Chorus" lby Junior I.

Our Normal School Orchestra could hard- ly be called professional, but we feel lthat we are having sutlicient activi- lties to entitle us to be in that class. 3 On February 6, 1922, the Normal iScl1ool Orchestra made its debut, ggiving five selections before and af- ter the showing of the Normal School picture, "The C3411 of the Hour." Because of the enthusiastic response of the audience, we gave a jazz en- core. VVhen we put away our in- struments for the night, it was with la. feeling that pwe wanted to perform iagain. f Eltorts were redoubled in practice, land our second appearance came on 'the occasion of the luncheon given to the Legislators, Monday, March 6. Seated in the far corner of the dining hall, we red the souls of the 'Legislators with rich melodies and harmonies, while' they made merry over the more material things of life. Our repertoire was classical, patriotic and popular jazz music. We are now anticipating the con- cert which will be given before very long by the M. S. N. S. Glee Club and Orchestra. We are sure it will be good, so advise everyone to watch for the announcement of this event in our season of 1921-22. R. A. GRAFTON. THE TOPICS OF THE DAY. i If you take a course in History, You can hear Miss Van Bibber S3-Y, "lf you want to keep right up to times Read -'The Topics of the Day.' " 1 No matter if the subject be A monk or industrial fray, Miss Van Bibber will always advise. "Read, 'The Topics ofthe Day.' " The question came not long ago, "What debt must England pay?" And she referred us, quick as thought To 'The Topics of the Day.' I Even when I have gone to bed And on my pallet lay, I never sleep, because I'm thinking 'Bout 'The Topics of the Day.' When I am dead and gone And my soul has flown away, The password I'll give St. Peter Will be 'Topics of the Day.' -BRYCE E. MAXJWELL.

The Normal School is further aid- ing by collecting discarded clothing and by contributions of money from each Junior and Senior section. The Y. W.'s service is not limited to its own institution. Under the direction of the organ- ization a campaign for better church attendance during the month of March is being waged. Each sec- tion is trying for a 100070 on at least one Sunday. The section having the highest general average for all four' Sundays wins the contest. Is your section going to win? ETA BETA FRATERNITY. The Eta Beta Fraternity was or- gganized here on February 17th with Edward Caulfield as President, and William Hull as Secretary and Treas- urer. ' ' This fraternity will fill-one of the 'greatest needs in the life of the boys 'of the Normal School. The friendly feeling, the ,brotherhood -and broth- erly co-operation among the mem- bers show a fine spirit and reilects credit on its members and on the rest of the school. Aside from its more serious pur- pose of creating a closer friendship among its members the fraternity will take an active interest in the social life of the school. A dance will be given in the near future and this will be followed by other so- cial functions. I The Eta Beta Fraternity at Nor- mal is one of the best young organ- izations in the State and its growth will undoubtedly be rapid. KERBY-"Tonsilitis?"

Essays are a thing of the past with Jr. III. The time has come when they want to be known by their deeds. After weeks of hard study in Home Economics they apply their knowledge by remodeling the dining room of the Home Economics De- partment. ' Imagine yourself entering a din- ing room that appeared dull and gloomy because of the dark doors. walls, woodwork, and dark stained floor. Nothing was cheerful in the room. Even the china closet was a dark, unattractive piece of furniture. Now picture yourself entering the .same room after Jr. Ill has given it many artistic touches. They have changed the once brown walls to a restful cream, and the doors and woodwork to an attractive ivory. On the dark brown floor they have put a light and dark brown Wilton rug. The table, once scarred and -scratched, now looks like new, for it has been given a coat of varnish. 'The china cabinet has even been painted ivory. New shades, green. on one side and cream on the other. have been secured for the windows. New curtains, draperies. and a table .runner of beautiful cream and ilow- ered material have been made by some members of the class. This gives the entire room a pleasing and inviting appearance. Thus you can see that we are not! putting our knowledge on paper, but we are putting it into practice by doing useful things. We are learning to do by doing. MINNIE HOLTSCHNEIDER. V Jr. 111. The essential element in commun- fity progress is the trained mind. The trained mind is not the mind stored with a, multitude of facts, histori-? cal, literary, or scientiiicg but the mind that can solve its own pro- blems, examine the propositions submitted to it, and separate the true from the false and the vital from the trivial. The successful teacher, therefore. is not the one whose pupils know and can recite a multitude of things, but the one whose pupils are learn- ing to think for themselves, to solve their own problems, and to reach their own conclusions as to the truth or falsity of the matters pre- sented for their consideration. I would rather develop one pupil who did not hesitate to contradict me when he thought me wrong than a score who remembered everything that I said and treasured it as truth merely because I said it.

Yours is 'an educational colony, directed by human thought and functioning in many ways. Through the columns of the ORIOLE you are telling Mary- land people what the school is do- ing and. as field agent for your school, it gives me many helpful things to present to prospective stu- dents for the school. , I shall look forward with pleas- iure to each number as it is issued. 1 Sincerely yours, I THos.

As a result. for the try to make them as effective as we can. and strive to make them artis- tic, but the ultimate end of all this type of songs is their social value. The' make us feel our social one- 5 ness, our companionship and -enjoy-' ment ot each other. It we are to' have real artistic enjoyment of music, we must have a very rich and full life, of this lan- guage use of music, which can come every day and,many times a day. It is in this respect that our Ameri- can civilization gives us little time and for thls reason schools should take pains to bring this practical use of music into everyday life as far as possible. ' There ls, however, one further analogy with ordinary language in this language use of music. We can tell instantly the difference between refined and self-respecting and vul- gar or yellow-streaked persons by the way they talk. It isn't merely in what they say but in how they say it and what they like to say. The same is true of the language of music. So many are apt to forget and think that anything that is musical is necessarily noble. There is noth- ing finer than our mother tongue but how much that is ignoble is spread by its misuse. The same is true of music. We naturally, in using music as a language, must have a great deal of it for our ordi- nary mode of lite. We cannot ex- press ourselves, all the time, in the language ot the great musical mas- ters any more than we can in the language of the great literary mas- ters. We must have a simple, shall I say homely, language of our own rhrough which to express ourselves. There is no doubt that there are types of popular music which are true evpressions of certain moods mate but anyone who is really true and sincere can ,differentiate be- tween this simple .music ot good feel- ing and jollity and the low and vul- gar music that iseeks purposely to degrade and blunt our sensibilities. The difference between the two is not one that we cannot prove by ar- gument any more than we can in the use of ordinary language but we mark instantly by the way a per- son talks whether he has refinement or not and we can tell also, instant- ly, whether a person is refined or not by the kind of music he is habitual- lly desirous of hearing. 1 One cannot constantly expose himself to what is below him and keep clean. The strugglerfor the beautiful and the noble and the 'good is-an eternal struggle and has the most enective rewards for those who are true to their best selves. There is no one level for everyone we admit, but to everyone the choice comes whether to go lower or to aim for the higher. This is some- thing that in a Normal School is of the utmost importance because those who go forth from such schools are those who set the example and wield a power greater, almost, than any other one person in society.' A per- son with low tastes in music may carry the poison of such a tendency and distribute it broadcast among innocent youths, or, if they have good taste, may do just the reverse. ! I am afraid this letter to The Ori- ole has turned into a sermon that the little bird will find hard to sing. May I help him by recapitulatlng? First, we are to bear ln mind the distinction between music as an art and a language, and second, we are to realize that in this language there is the opportunity to express all the fun and love of life and also that nrst time during the existence ot' this institution we have a real bank- ing system iit the Normal School' with Miss Scarborough as its presi- dent, secretary, treasurer, cashier, teller, and board of directors, all" combined. Later it is planned to- have the students till some of these important places. For many years the school has made provision for the sate-keeping of the money of the students and the cashing of checks, but with incon- venience to the ofllce force and to the students. A The present system is much sim' pler. A student deposits her check in the school bank and receives a bank book and a check book. As yet, not all of the students have taken advantage of our bank but .we feel that in a few more weeks all of them will patronize it. Not only is the bank valuable to' us as a convenience and as a sale- Jdeposit for our funds, but it also 'affords excellent training. We learn to keep- an accountand to write out and handle our own checks accord- ing to modern business practices. M. J., '23. MASON 'S GOVANS EXPRESS COMPANY Let Us Haul Your Baggage. Tel.

Seniors were rmissing from Normal. To all who questioned about the gap in our ranks there was the same la- conic reply "Gone to Annapolis." The main object of our visit was to hear the Educational Bill dis- cussed in the House of Delegates. It is hardly possible to visit Annapo- lis without seeing the points of in- terest, however, so we decided to spend part of the day in sight-see- ing. Enthusiasm ran high as we gath- ered at the school station that morn- ing in, spite of the cold, damp at- mosphere. Nothing, we were con- vinced, could dampen our spirits. It was with alacrity that we obeyed the conductor's "Step lively, please!" and boarded the seven-thirty car. At the W2 B. 8: A. Station we met Miss Van Bibber and Mr. Hufting- ton, the Superintendent of Colored Schools, who had kindly offered to act as guide. After securing our tickets we wasted little time and soon' found ourselves speeding to- ward Maryland's quaint old capital. On reaching Annapolis we went 'dist to the oflice of the Superintend- ent of Anne Arundel Schools. Mr. Fox very graciously allowed us to leave our lunches in his oflice and offered the use of it during lunch hour. In welcoming us to the town Mr. Fox made reference to the pro- bability of our visiting some of the historic buildings, and in so doing called attention to the fact that the building in which we were, was the home of Maryland's government when it was first moved to its pres- ent capital from St. Max-y's City. ,Quite naturally, the Naval Acade- my next claimed our attention. Here the Memorial Chapel held our some- what awed attention for some time. We stood in reverence beside the remains of John Paul Jones and let our imaginations, aided by a hazy recollection of Grammar School His- tory, carry us back to the War of 1812. il I ri -T Mr. Hutlington related the thrill- ing story of the burning ot the Peggy Stewart and showed us the spot on which this often belittled event tool-I place. At St. John's we stood under the Treaty Oak while Mr. Hudington re- lated the event which made it fam- ous. We were especially interested, however, in searching for the names of friends and relatives on the class shields in the Asesmbly Hall. By the time we had visited the Governor's mansion and "Old St. Ann's" it was time for lunch which most of us enjoyed in the building afore-mentioned. Some of us invad- ed' a delightful little restaurant stand so we went aboard by the sim- ple process of lifting the latch and crossing the threshold. ' We found the interior to a great extent the counterpart of the cabins of vessels which ply the Potomac and Chesapeake. The lighting, for in- stance, was by means of lanterns containing electric bulbs. We met at the State House in good time and wandered about the halls, examining the exhibits in the Maryland Geological Museum and otherwise entertaining ourselves un- til we found our way to the visitor's gallery of the House. Bills were discussed and laid on the table, others were passed, but to the most of us who were uniniti- ated these proceedings meant little and it was not until the following day when we read our morning news- paper that we really became aware of the meaning of these happenings. At two o'clock a recess wasyde- clared for one hour which we ac- cepted as eagerly as those of the Legislators who had been kept rather busy. In the interim we found-our way to Carvel, Hall and the Maryland Public Library and Court of Appeals building. When we dually returned to the House, it was with much impatience that we waited for the members to convene for "Our bill" was the next business to be discussed. W'e were unable to remain for the full discussion, but before we left we had the pleasure of hearing Miss Risteau, the Lady from Harford, and Maryland's first and only woman Legislator, defend the article deal- ing with supervisor's salaries. We were loathe to take our de- parture, especially when things were becoming so lively, but we were re- minded that unless we were willing to go to bed hungry it behooved us to reach Newell Hall for supper. There was nothing to say to that, so we departed. JANET DUKE. . fwnxr SIZIOUIZDI A tNoaM.u. or ' SCHOOL LMEAN ATO -THE STATE? A State normal school is a public institution, therefore it should be a means of public service. Naturally the educational leaders of the State had this service in mind when they planned so liberally for the Maryland State Normal School. This peculiar service, it is hardly necessary to state, is the preparation of teachers for the elementary schools. In the preparation of teachers for any grade of work, there are, as I see it, three important lines of develop- ment -professional training gener- ling, an inspiration based on a genu- ine "enthusiasm for humanity." The teacher must have more than professional work in the Normal school. She will need a larger ac- quaintance with the past through the medium of history and litera- tureg she will need a better under- standing of the material world through additional study of science, and most emphatically, she will need to develop her appreciation of the beautiful through the study of art- literature, music. lf time permitted 'I should like to dwell on this last pointy it has to do with a neglect in our national education which many thoughtful educators are inclined to regard as its most serious defect even when regarded from the pure- ly practical. Certainly the teachers who are going to work for the devel- opment of what Pope called the "Noblest -Work-of God." "An Hon- 'est Man" are going to need a broader outlook on life, a wider comprehen- sion of its meaning, and a deeper appreciation of the achievements ot the race, than the high school course can give. Without such opportunity for growth the third element in the pre- paration of teachers is hardly possi- ble. The great sources of inspira- tion are the achievements of men. Great achievements have been made 'in teaching and they 'should be a source of inspiration to the teach- ers, but the inspiration which the teachers should pass on must be drawn largely from other sources Frankly, I believe it can come only from a keen appreciation of the pres- ence of God in the world. An in- spiring teacher must have iaith in man. I have never seen such, 8 faith existing apart from faith in God. We have only to read the ut- terances of such business experts as Babson to realize how common is the belief that what ails American life today is the fact that God is too .muchleft out of it. The normal school, then, should. mean to the State,-a place where its choicest young people are, gathered to prepare themselves for the most important work to which the State summons any of its citizens. It should be a place to foster large mental and spiritual growth, and dually it should through the spirit of its teachers and the whole atmos- phere of the school, be a rich source of inspiration, an inspiration based on deep religious convictions.

As an outgrowth of this work, in the regular assembly on VVednes- day, February 1, a most interesting musical program was conducted by members of Junior I. They pre- sented tothe school, the oper "Tann-' hauser" in an unusual and pleasing manner. Miss Marion Ogle ex- plained fully the meaning of opera and traced its history: Miss Alvina Trent gave us the life of Richard Wagner, the composer of "Tannhau- ser" and Miss Julia Whaland told, us the story of the opera, It was especially interesting owing to the fact that two of our music depart-e ment instructors, Miss Shroeder and Miss Spicer ,rendered beautifully H several selections from the opera, and the class Ur. IJ sang an ar- rangement of the "Pilgrim's 'Chorus." ' Other opera the Juniors have' lstudied are "Pagliacci" by Leonca- Roman nose. i Dear Teacher-"Bobbie, give me ga sentence using 'chagrinnedf' 5 Bright Pupil-"I told my sister a. joke and she grinned." l Jane R,--"Why do you call your 'dog Hardware?"

The Assembly Hall had long been in need of curtains so that illus- trated lectures might be given in there in day time. It was the busi- ness and pleasure of Jr. I-B. to rise to this need and Jr. I-B. rose. Un- der the direction of Miss Greenlaw, we spent Monday and Thursday evenings in making those curtains. We had a delightful time snuifing the delectable U3 odors of glue and feeling the joys of construction. We made the curtains of heavy paper and wood strips, to roll just like real curtains. Miss Greenlaw always regaled her merry workers with candy, choco- late and crackers. Not only did we have heaps of fun and good times, but we derived real benefits, the as- surance of experience and the cour- age to undertake work for ourselves. So altogether let us give a rous- ing cheer for Industrial Arts. A. T.-Jr. I-B. Will we Juniors ever forget the following definitions: "Psychology is the science of behavior." "Situa- tion is all those details which con- stitute what the child does." "'A bond is tl1e nerve mechanism which connects the situation and response." No, never! They have bee11 pound- ed into our heads so thoroughly that we eve11 dream of them in our sweet slumbers. Don't think for an in- stant that that is all we have learnedg we have had our 'hands and heads full doing all that we had to do. The first work we took up was experimental work. All of us en- joyed the experiments immensely, especially the experiments about learning the alphabet backward and the mirror drawing. These experi- ments not only afforded great amusement, but they were very val- uable. They taught us how a child just learns to read and Write. When we first learnedhto say the alphabet backward we said a few letters and paused in between them. After we said them over a number of times the pauses became shorter, and we be- gan to group the letters more and more. This is just like a child does. At first it will not group letters, but after the child has gone to school some time it will begin to group the letters. A Other experiments that we had were: "What factors affect the strength of the bond?" "How should students be graded?" "How may one diagnose the ability of chil- dren?" We discussed these experi- ments in class. These discussions were very helpful because we had to apply the experiments in teach- Fountain Pens at HERGENRATHER'S ling. On discussing how and why in- l l dividuals differ, it was very inter- esting to see just how greatly even our small class differed on the same subject. These experiments are the foundation of our further Work for the year. We had to learn how to apply these experiments in all branches of study. These experiments though inter- esting cannot be compared in i11ter- est with what we are now studying, the psychology of childhood. Some of the things that we have read about this term are: "The value of the human instincts," which are, the individualistic instincts, social instincts, the collecting instinct and the instinct of fear. -Every child at a certain age has the collecting in- stinct. This instinct should be en- couraged and well developed so that it will be a help in the child's later lifeg while the instinct of fear should be checked in early life. The clri-ld should be taught that the night is beautiful, and that God is continually watching over it so that no harm shall come to us. THE NAVAL ACADEMY AT SUNSET. As I walked over the grounds sur- rounding the Naval Academy I was enchanted by its stillness and pic- turesque scenes. In the blue water which lay peacefully before me were mirrored the long, white boats which rested motionless along its edge, a11d the lovely clouds which moved slow- ly overhead. Looking ac1'oss the bay I saw trees and shrubbery painted fby the brush of King Soll a shade of mingling red and orange. With these patriotic colors-the red, white, and blue-before my eyes. what could have been more pleas- ing to the heart of any American than to hear the soft notes of the Star Spangled Banner float upon the still air? All was perfect silenceg not a person moved or spoke, and, in fact, the trees and birds seemed almost to hush and listen to the melody. After the last note had died away I turned my gaze to the West. A more beautiful sky I have never seen! Every color of the rainbow was there in its gayest hue, each shade blending into another to make it more lovely. As these shades iiitted quietly by, the sung hesitatingly left its throne like a dy- ing flame. MARGUERITE STONER. Alma C.-"Helen, do you think that Dr. Clough's medicine does any good?"

The dusty, untidy, stacks of soap, cough syrup and horse liniment in the cor- ners and around the sides were bare- ly visible in the shadows. The place of greatest importance was around the little wood stove. which was propped up on bricks in a box of sand. In a circle arouud the stove on a rickety three-legged stool, a chair minus its back, a soda keg and soap boxes. were seated six of the male inhabitants of Shantytown. While the fati jolly. red-faced store- keeper waited on his customers who occasionally came in to buy a pint of coal oil, the men around the stove in between the pulis of smoke from their corncob pipes and a chew from a piece of Brown's Mule. could be heard talking loudly and all at once. The topics of discussion were such as: who had the fastest motor boat on the bay, how plentiful oysters were, whether the revenue oflicer had'been arou-nd lately and similar topics of the day. Occasionally some one would tell a joke and they would all show their appreciation by laughing loudly and rocking back and forth in their seats until you held your breath for fear that the back leg on the rickety three-legged stool would part company with the others and cause the big. fat man seated thereon to break the last white button on his eil skin coat. A close observer might see the hand of one of the men quite frequently reach through the wire netting which covered bottom of the counter, and tish soda crackers for himself and companions. On top of the counter, in a of gloves, the old black cat soundly sleeping regardless of noise. The woodbox, in front of the stove, showed only three small pieces ei wood, thoughtfully placed there by the storekeeper to serve as a sig- nal ot' departure for the little group. M ARY PALMER.

Since going to Chicago, Miss Tall has been concerned with legislative matters, One of the projects before the Legislators at the present is the new dormitory. The present accom- modations crowd 380 students. Next year we hope to have an enrollment of more than 500 students. Ar- rangements are being made to place some of these students in Towson homes. Some large normal schools have to house all of their students in this way. They have no dormi- tories at all. VVe are much more fortunate than they, for one of the most pleasant features of Normal is the dormitory life. The students who live in the town will partici- pate in the life of the dormitory and eat in Newell Hall. They will have the pleasure too, of looking forward to life in their new home, which we hope will be in the process of build- ing during the year. One reason for this hope is the support which we are confident of receiving from the Legislators. Eighty of them honored us with a visit on March 6. They saw the need for a new dormi- tory and were quite enthusiastic about it. We believe that they went away our friends. The other matter that Miss Tall is much concerned with is the cut in the Normal School budget. A cut of 510,500 was made. Of this amount 53,000 was to have been spent in the Rural Education de- partment. This coprse is an impor- tant one in any Normal School, the preparing of students to teach in rural fields. We had a beginning this year in a wonderfully enlight- ening course given by Mr. Edward Broom, Superintendent of Montgom- p ery County Schools. The cut ties' our hands in this line for the present. Y DEFINITIDNS' The otherzcut of 37,500 was to have been spent for extension work. lt is unfortunate thatthed word "ex-l tensioni' was used, since one-fourth of the amount was to have been used for extension work and the re- maining three-fourths for'our ele- mentary school. Everybody con- nected with Normal Education knows that the elementary school isj the pivot on which the Normal Course revolves. It is the laboratory in which the students preparing to teach do their work. There theyl are able to watch children grow in the process of education. This year we have only four teachers in our! elementary school and 125 girls in practice. Next year 250 students will be in practice. With the seven Baltimore County teachers who as- sist as critics, this would mean 20 students per day to each teacher. We had hoped to add three new teachers to our elementary school staff so that no critics would have I fmore than 10 students to train. The lextension work that these three 'teachers were to have done, in addi- tion to their grade work, was to help third and second grade certificated teachers build up their training in practice so that they could rise to a grade of teaching that would make them more enicient. So at present .Miss Tall is a bit sad over the out- look of the cut. However, nothing kills our spirit at Normal, even though it may handicap us and we'll forge ahead in spite of handicaps. Watch us grow! B. A. VV.. '22. A Maarormrrn snow. On Friday, March 10, a Marion- ette Show was given in the Elemen- tary School at M. S. N. S. Tony Sarg did not present it, though it was based on his directions for pup- pet plays. The Sixth Grade gave the performance with puppets they made, dressed, strung, and con- itrolled. The play was the result of a. study of the Vikings and Norse my.- thology. The knowledge thus gained was used in the designing of cos- itumes, stage decorating, and scen- ery. tThe play was in two acts, each having two scenes, the plot of which ,was a Norse fairy story.J The work was self-imilated, free work, but there was surely no free or leisure time for the teacher, or pupils during that period. The suc- cessful performance was the culmi- nation of many weeks of hard, in- teresting work. Both the Sixth Grade and Mrs. McCord may well feel proud of this achievement. 1 L.

My aunt, a lady of sixty-eight, was calm and pleasant. No home could have been filled with more sunshine than was hers. Not only sunshine that shone from her radiant face, but sunshine from her soul, sunshine that made others around her happy. Such a cheerful disposition! Even. her soft gray hair, massed graceful- ly at the nape of her neck, her wrinkled but pleasing forehead and her brown, twinkling eyes, told a story not only of cheerfulness, but of love and happiness for every one. She was never too busy to lend a helping hand to one in distress or to speak a kind word to some down cast soul. Her small, graceful fig- ure, with the aid of her thin, smooth hands, seemed always seeking to be of service. Wherever she went she spread sunshine in every nook and crany of the hearts she met and every one felt happier and better for having met this sunny character. Could one wish for a better friend than this dear lady? ELLEN M. HARDESTY. I Y WE HELP. "No one can leave the campus un- til further notice." What would We do for Heats?" W'here would we get a new hairnet? How could we wash our hands without soap? The Y. W. cabinet got busy and before long 'we had a real store, selling every- thing from hairnets to ham. After all it was genuinefun organizing the lorders, standing in a telephone booth dictating orders for ten minutes, and finally having the satisfaction of get- ting at least one bun and a Yukon Dainty. Sunday was coming and no chance 'of going to church. How could We ever spend such a day? Our blues were cast aside through Miss Scar- borough's efforts. Dr. Humphrey ,came to us with a much appreciated message on "Road Building." The last Sunday of church-going .campaign is over. Who wins? Jun- ior III, with a 'final average of 8015. This is a splendid wind-up consider-' ing the many interruptions. Away off in Armenia ive hundred eighty-two starving children will be fed for one day or one child for six- teen months, through efforts of boys and girls at Normal. Beside money. many articles of clothing have been given. This should be a challenge to others! , HOME ECONOMICS. The last lap of the year was start- ed off with a bang in the first as- Asembly after our Easter vacation. 'Normal School students were sur- prised and pleased to hear two very interesting guests, one of whom was Miss Nina Simmons, who has for some time been associated with Doc- tor McCu1lough, of Hopkins Univers- ity, in the field of Home Economics. Miss Simmons' subject was "Some Practical Aspects of Nutrition." She said We ought to "learn to live, not to exist." This is well summed up ,in the motto of the Camp Fire Girls "wo-he-lo," which means Work, .Health, Love. We cannot work well unless we have goodhealth, neither ldo we make enjoyable companions lunless we have that sometimes elu- 'sive thing "health." Q The department which Miss Sim- Lmons represents has experimented 'on white rats to iind the cure of "beri-beri," "scurvy" and "ricketts." "Beri-beri," a disease common to the natives of China, Japan and the Philippine Islands, causes a person to lose control of the body and be- come quite helpless. Swelling of the eyelids may occur sometimes, caus- ing one or "Scurvy of us who both eyes to become blind. " does not apply to those live on a regular diet, but to men in the Army and Navy and sometimes to babies, who must use either pasteurized or condensed milk. The gums swell and rheumatism is often suspected. Orange juice is a fine preventative. "Ricketts" is not a disease of the bones as generally supposed, al- though a bone derangement is in- volved. Round shoulders, bow-legs, and' a pigeon-breast are indications of the presence of rickets in the system. The use of vitamines is absolutely necessary for the cure of "beri-beri," "scurvy" and "rickets," So if you wish to be healthy include one quart of milk, about two salads of some kind of vegetables, some greens, isuch as spinach, lettuce or celery, and fruits in your daily diet. Above all else let no one persuade you to give up your well earned "rest" at night! M. P. R. SHAPES. "Practice Teacher - "John, can you tell us the shape of the world?"

The scale for the rating of teach- ers is the result of the study of two groups of seniors who realized that some means of measuring their eni- ciency as practice teachers was need- ed. After a study of the material iavailable on the self-rating of teach- ers, an outline was formed. An ar- ticle by Dr. Harold Rugg, of Lin- coln School, New York City, greatly infiuenced the selection of topics. The outline as it now stands has .been made and revised twice to meet the wishes and needs of particular groups of seniors. It is again in process of revision by Senior III. The ratings are made on a basis of High, Medium, Low. At the end of eight weeks of practice teaching, a self-rating is made by the student teacher. Again at the close of prac- tice teaching an evaluation is made and discussed. In this way the final estimate of practice teaching is a composite one, partly formed by the practice teachers themselves. Black 8 Decker Mfg. Co. Towson Heights, Md.

Ruby Trail. In this busy world of ours, it is well for everyone to know something both interesting and useful that they can do as recreation. To make a wood-block, in my estimation, fills both of these requirements, and yet the process is such that any one can do it. When completed it may be used to stamp postals, papers, scarfs, centerpieces and many other things ornamental to the home. It is in the planning and making! however, that we und the real joy. A sharp knife, a piece of linole- um, the size of the design, a piece of soft wood the size of the linoleum and a design, covers the list of ma- terials. First, glue the linoleum on the wood. The wood thus gives a sup- port to the linoleum and makes it easy to hold while printing the de- sign. Next, draw the design on a. piece of thin, but strong paper. The design should be simple and attrac- tive, but one that can be arranged in several different ways. Put a very thin layer of paste on the linoleum and place the design on this. Great care must be taken to put the paper on straight. The interesting work has now, just begun. It is with real live enthusiasm that the knife is plied. The part of the design to be left solid on the block, is the only, part not cut off by a knife, or any small tool available. With intense joy you watch the design stand out and when it is finally completed, you can hardly wait to mix the paint to experiment. With a brush, cover the design with paint and then print it on a piece of paper and decide upon the best arrangement. This done the woodl block is ready for service. If these directions are carefully followed, it will be with great pride that you will stand back at this point, and marvel at your own handiwork. A HEALTH RHYME. ' QAn Acrosticj Elizabeth Lamb.

' THE KALEIDESCOPE. For the past three numbers we have talked mainly about the admin- istrative duties of the principal. For this month, Miss Tall would like the public to know something of the every day life of the student, the part of his life that really makes for growth and the development of ideals in the student body. We need only controlled and re- sponsible citizens of the right type in this world of ours. Miss Tall wishes to pay tribute to the Student Council and its remarkable president, Miss Evelyn Peacock, of Kent County. She has steered the ship of student government through one year, pro- bably the stormiest, because it was the pioneer year. The rock on which we have stumbled most is proctor- ship. In a year or two we hope the proctors will feel that it is an honor to hold such a position and that she is not a detective but a counsellor, and guide to whom a girl will go with her problems. Then the posi- tion will be so popular that there will be electioneering among the stu- dents. When we reach this stage we shall know that great progressive strides have been made. One thing that pleases our prin-- cipal especially is the number of activities that the students have ini- tiated themselves. The Y. W. C. A. and Church Attendance Groups have done very edective Work. The His- tory Club has iiourished as we never thought it could flourish in its sec- ond year. The Psychology Club: our oldest club, has maintained steady growth throughout the year. The organization of the entire school into an Athletic Association made the students understand, appreciate and boost each other. The school or- chestra is always a source of de- light. This time last. year we had no sign of one and we feel justly proud of ours this year. We can look upon ourselves with real respect and can give untold pleasure to ourselves and the public. But hold! this is not meant to be a report of all the school activities. It is just to show that the vital building up of the ac- tivities of the school is always first in our principal's thoughts.

I am indeed sorry that it is quite im- possible for me to attend the per- formance that your pupils are giv- inging as I have several lecture dates here in New York at that time, mak- ing it impossible for me to leave. I assure you it would be a great pleasure for me to attend the per- formance as I am so interested in the many children learning the art of making puppets and produc- ing little plays. I thank you for inviting me and please express my sincere regret to the children who so kindly wrote asking me to come. I shall be de- lighted to hear from you again and if you are in the vicinity of New York at any time, I should be de- lighted to have you visit my studio at the above address. Very sincerely yours, 'TONY SARG. THE SIXTH GRADE MARION- ETTE SHOW. A Marionette Show has been planned and staged in the Sixth Grade as a result of an interest in the Tony Sarg Marionettes which the children saw last fall.

THE END OF THE COURSE. We, of Junior II, have just com- pleted our course in Ancient and Medieval History. Of course, all good things must end and so it was with our History. Did some one say good things? Yes, of course History was good, not only in itself, but for us. Did We not all need to know about the progress' of man since earliest times, so that we of today might profit from his many eiorts and. success, might carry on and improve many of his under- takings, making progress continue. Our course in History, carried us over two terms of work, in thinking back now, it seems that it must have been very pleasurable work, because although we often wished for the end of the term, yet today we have a certain longing to once more wend our way to Room 202. We shall of course, study History next year, but it will be another type of work and not the very interest- ing story of the Ancient. Next year, we shall have the opportunity of teaching what we learned this year. This, of course, is one advantage, because it does keep us in touch with History, but you know there is quite a diierence between studying a sub- ject and teaching it. HELEN SCHOULER.

MENTS. in the business world there is no room for the man who is not exact, or for the one who guesses when a 'definite conclusion is desired-. In the business of education, the ten- dency in the past has been to guess at results. Now there is a definite measure, the standardized test, with which I am sure most of us are fa- miliar. Senior II has been doing a very interesting piece of work with the tests in the Elementary School, and the results were given at the Te-Pa- Chi Club meeting, April seventh. In the fall Miss Birdsong gave tests in reading, spelling, and the fundamentals of arithmetic. In the spring, tests were repeated to see if there had been any growtlr. We graded the papers, and recorded the scores in graph form, and presented the graphs to the Parent Teachers' Association. The class accompanied Miss Bird- song when the reading test was giv- en to the fourth and second grades, we were all very much interested to see the reaction of the different chil- dren to the testi. The directions lwere given very clearly, and for the most part the response was good. In correcting the papers, an portunity was given to see how minds of the pupils worked. op- the In graphing the results, the fall test was taken first, the spring test .placed second, and a space was left for the final test, which will be given before the close of the term. The results were given in terms of per- cent., using one hundred per cent. as the grade standard. By this ar- rangement, it is easy to check up, and see if any progress has been made. The question is often asked "Why give a standardized test?" One may as well say, "Why use the yard in measuring cloth?" We give the tests because they are, a measure, a standardized measure of the ability or achievement of chil- dren. Aside from that, they show the teacher whether she is falling down or keeping up with her work. If a test is given in the fall, and an- other in the spring the teacher may evaluate her own Work. In the scoring, the teacher sees what reaction each individual is making to his work, and what each one needs. In this way, the test is used as a means to diagnose the chil- dren's diiliculties, and to suggest what correctives must be applied to ,bring each one up to standard. INA HERRMANN, Sr. II.

It may be interesting to learn the increased use of books since autumn. In the month of December, 1513 books were circulated with an ap- proximate attendance of 48113 in January, 3703 books, with an at- tendance of 55753 in February, 4347 were circulated, with 6050 attend- anceg- and in March, 3466, withuan attendance of 4850, Had it not been for the enforced vacation, our circulation would have passed the 5000 mark. We are enjoying an increasing co- operation with the Elementary School. Each class has a period set aside each week for a reading hour in the library. The most attractive and best illustrated books We own are put out on the tables, and it is as interesting for us to watch the children's enthusiasm, as it is for them to use the books. From time to time we are able to add a little decoration in the shape of a new picture, posters made by students, and the unusually beauti- ful pussywillows brought by Miss Hisley. The librarian wishesrto express her grateful thanks to the girls who are so thoughtful as to help in tidy- ing tables and chairs and straight- ening books at the end of each period. MARGARET E.

When Sr. II and III began their History Methods' Course last fall they became engrossed in a. piece of work which we feel is quite impor- tant toward the betterment of edu- cation. It is coming to be believed that teachers should have a greater part than they have had in the making of courses of study. The Seniors de- cided that it would be interesting to Und out to just what extent history courses were used in the United States, and if possible to obtain these courses and compare them. A They nrst went to the Education- al Directory, a government bulletin, and secured a list of the names of the superintendents of schools in the forty-eight States. Then letters were written to these superintend- ents asking them if they had special history courses. Forty answers were received. Sixteen States replied by sending general courses of study. Some of these bulletins contained courses for elementary schools only, some for elementary and high schools, and some for primary or grammar grades only. Others were for rural schools and Junior High Schools. In addition, the Canal Zone sent an Elementary Course. Hlonolulu, a course for primary and grammar grades, and Washington, D. C., replied that they had no course available for distribution. Maine's supply of special courses was exhausted, but the superintend- ent sent a local project. Thirteen States sent addresses of places from which their courses could be ob- tained. It is interesting to know that from Maryland we obtained a copy of the High School course of Study. There is a rural school course in manuscript. Talbott, Montgomery, Carrol and Frederick Counties have worked out good courses of study and we are all familiar with the Bal- timore County Course. At the beginning of the Second Term, Senior I wrote to the superin- tendents of thirty-six City schools for special history courses. All an- swered. Thirteen Cities sent coursesg ten had no coursesg nine answered that the history course was included in the General Course, and two sent addresses of places from which to obtain the courses. The next thing in order was to compare the material, methods, and THE STEBBINS-ANDERSON COAL 85 LUMBER CO., Dealers in Coal, Lumber, Hardware, Builders' Supplies TOWSON, MD. RIDERWOOD, MD. aims as .Eound in these manuals. For a standard, the Baltimore Coun- ty Course was used. It was found that while 3370 of the courses made provision for history-in the 1st grades, 675, did not begin until the 4th grade or later. Most of the courses did not provide for home and community activities in lst grade, but for a study of primitive life instead. It was very interesting to note what different courses emphasized in the methods of teaching history. Most of them seemed to believe that the success of history teaching in the first four grades depends upon the teacher's ability as a story-teller. Some even believed that the bi- ographical idea should continue through the 6th grade. If you re- member, Dr. Johnson says that usu- ally too much emphasis is placed on biography. He says the courses can be made more interesting by group- ing men about events rather than events about meng and by studying men as groups rather than as indi- viduals. A quotation from Seattle says "Children love ar good story and if the teacher is a good story- teller she may vitalize her teaching by means of this gift better than in any other way." Thus We saw that some of the courses presented er- roneous ideas. The various conceptions of his- tory aims were even more interest- ing. To quote one course of study "The purpose of history teaching in the intermediate grades is to awak- en interest, encourage supplemen- tary reading and present worthy ideals. As an outcome of the work of 5th and 6th grades, the pupils should be able to use a text-book in- telligently." From the Patterson, N. J., Course we take this: "The aim of history teaching is to develop the consciousness ing the child of himself and members of the human family and to help him to self-devel- opment as an intelligent and patri- otic American citizen." Upon exam- ination you will find that this course of study is outlined in such topics as: What America owes to Europeg Some Social, Economic and Political Conditions, and Problems of the Present. Jersey City follows a dif- ferent line of thought. "The main object in studying history is to ac- quire a taste for it and a love for history reading rather than memoriz- ing facts." Accordingly, Jersey City has outlined its course as a story would be outlined, for exam- ple: Colonial Llfeg The Struggle be- twee the French and English, and so on. Sioux City sent one of the richest and best courses of study. It asserts that the appreciation of our histor- lcal inheritance does not imply a study of the details of general his- tory. ln short, it has to do with the milestones of progress. This course however, is largely based on the Cul- ture Epoch Theory, which is gradu- ally being discarded. All of the courses suffered in com- parison with the Baltimore County Course, which is one of the best in the U. S. Here we have no stereo- ityped outline, but a wealth of prac- tical material. There were about a half dozen courses that came up to the Baltimore County standard. This study has given us an idea of what is generally contained in a, good history course of study. The knowledge of where and how to. ob- tain the best courses of study willf be invaluable in our teaching next year. We will, too, have gained a.- more critical attitude toward courses of study. We know that not all of the States. have the same attitude toward his-' tory. Some of them answered "Our course of study is out of print, as. it is being revised," due, no doubt, to the different ideals of history teaching which the war has brought about and the prominence of the- project method. History lends it- self particularly well to this method often involving other subjects. In the new history courses one of the most important things is the statement of minimum essentials. Every child must cover so much ground and those who are capable of going farther than these may do so. E It will be up to us to boost such ideas as much as possible, and work with the courses of study will have helped in making us more capable of doing the job! . of doing the job. SMILES OR FROWNS?

I How oft you've seen them here ancf there With smiles upon their faces, And wished and wished, oh, maidens fair, That you were in their places. I And there are many girls we know. Who always fret and frown, You see them all out in a row, "The world seems upside down." You see them and you sigh, "Oli me! Those girls seem awful sad, Whatever can the matter be?

There is one ordeal to which I shall never grow accustomed, that is, waiting at the dentist's. The min- ute I am ushered into the waiting room something seems to snap with- and at that instant I become ,a different person. The room is empty. I take my .seat and pick up last month's maga- zine or yesterday's paper, and settle back trying to appear comfortable, calm and collected. Before many .minutes I have a companion who sits opposite me and prepares to read a paper. I look up from the printed page which I have only been pretending to read and stare moodily at the newcomer. He presents a rather in- teresting appearance having a pecu- liar puiiiness in his left jaw. Oun eyes meet and we glance hastily away. I look at my watchg he looks at his. I am burning with curiosity to see the inside sheets of his paper. The dentist appears and asks our pardon for being late. It is five .minutes past my appointment but -he asks the other patient to walk intodiis oflice. I am usually ready to stand up for my rights, but now I am meekness itself. Indeed, If am only too glad to postpone my torture. " ' "5 I continue to sit, though I am abnormally interested in what is go- ing on in the next room. I hear the low murmur of voices and the doc- tors' soothing "This may hurt a lit- tle." There is a hair-raising scream which brings me to my feet. I grab my hat, but thinking again, I drop into my chair. My composure has fled. The picture of the Stag at Bay occupies my attention. The animal assumes amazing proportions and fixes me with a look that simply terrorizes me. I clutch my hat fran- tically and resolutely turn my back on this monster that is about to de- vour me. The ticking of the clock becomes so loud as to nearly deafen me. I am sure murder is being done in the next room. I had better take a look. At this point, the dentist appears and again 'begging my pardon hur- ries on to an important meeting. I smile quite affably and as I take my departure the clock ticks a cheer- ful farewell while the stag smiles amicably. I am to come at the same time tomorrow. HQUEER, AIN'T IT."

One glance at a camper's fire will tell what kind of a woodsman he is. It is impossible to prepare a good meal over a heap of smoking brush. For a lunch, when you have only to boil coffee and fry something, a large fire is not needed. Drive a, forked stick into the ground, lay a green stick across it, slanting up- ward from the ground and weight the lower end with something heavy, so that you can easily regulate the height of a pot. The slanting stick 'should be notched to hold the pot in place, and to be set at such an angle that the pot swings about a foot above the ground. Then gather a small armful of sound, dry twigs. Take no twig that lies flat on the ground, for they are generally damp.' Select three of the best sticks for kindling. Shave each of them al- most through, for half its length, leaving the lower end of the shav- ings attached to the stick, one under the other. Stand these is a triangular form, under the hanging pot with the curls down. Around them place the other sticks in a conical shape, standing each on end and slanting toward the centre. Leave air space between the sticks. Now touch off the shaved sticks and in a moment you will have a fire under the pot. This will steam up in a hurry. Put small Qsticks on when needed. Meantime get two bed-sticks, four or five inches thick, to support the frying pan. When the firewood has dropped to embers, take out the smoking pieces, leaving only the coals. Put your bed-sticks on either side. Set the pan on then and fry the food. In twenty minutes from the time you drove your stake, the meal will be cooked. ATHLETICS. With these warm days come the season for baseball, tennis, field and track activities. Although we haven't played any scheduled games we have played inter-class games. Every one on the team is trying his or her best to live up to the stand- ard in order to win a letter. These letters will not only mean just a prize, but to every one who receives an award it means they can not be surpassed in their school. The girls have chosen the Navy N. This is to be yellow, backed with black. The boys have chosen a similar letter, which will not be backed by black. The awarding of the letters will be the biggest event of the season. One has to maintain a high standard to receive a letter. At the end of the scholastic year we are going to have 'an impressive assembly, at which :Miss Tall will give the awards. F. W.

It is the place where lost wander about at leisure. and nothing returns to its former The lost things themselves. things where home. are carried by fairy hands to the por- tals of this Magic world. Upon ar- riving there, all is in pitchy dark- ness. until gay little sprites, with their magic touch, cause a door to swing hack on its great hinges. When they once enter the kingdom. all becomes beautiful and they im- mediately enter into all the gay festivities in which the sprites take part, Here in the land of Nowhere, the little lost things have no one to tease them. nor anyone to scold them. so they wander around at will, until some former owner knocks at the door of the kingdom and cap- tures them before they can escape.

ENDEAVOR AS GIVEN BY ' Janet Duke. One of the biggest pieces of work in the Senior year is the writing of the history prize essay. The con- test which is international in scope isconducted by the American School Citizenship League, and is open to Seniors in Normal Schools and' Teachers' Colleges. Prizes of 75, 50 and 25 dollars are awarded for the three best es- says. M. S. N. S. has been rather fortunate in the winning of the prizes. In 1919 Miss Lola Wood won the second prize, and last year. the first and second prizes were won respectively by Misses Lucille Heath and Grace Tull, while two other students received honorable men- tion. The "Function of Education in the Promotion of International Under- standing" is the subject of the essay this year. The conditions of the contest are these: "Each essay must be accompanied by a topical outline and a bibliography with brief notes on each book. The essays must not exceed 5,000 words. A length of 3,000 words is suggested as desir- able." This essay has been a project of many weeks. Indeed the Seniors have not been content with using the material which our library affords, but have made frequent visits to the Baltimore libraries. However, when the essay is completed they feel that tl. 'y have been more than compen- sated for their labor for they have gained not only much information concerning world affairs, but at the same time a broad minded and sym- pathetic attitude toward foreign problems. Of course it is not possi- ble that more than a very few of our girls have written essays which Will be sent in, and of these, there may be none worthy of the prize, but under any circumstances the stu- dents realize that the writing 'of this essay has had a very definite value for'them. After all, should not we as future teachers have as an essen- tial part of our equipment an ex- ceedingly keen sense of the part which education can play in bringing nations to a closer understanding of each other?

The past lies behind, but its influence projects itself and keeps on determining the present. If in our life here together, this year has made us, as students in the great profession, understand what team- work is, what loyalty isg what faith with work means, what happiness and joy means, what the value of a small child in the whole scheme of society isg what wonders the educa- tional process can work, curiosity about the greatest marvel in the world, wliic his the power of the human mind to learng if in all these things we have got together, we have touched the infinite. In that sense, the students of M. S. N. S. and faculty, too, have grown in spirit together, and the spirit 'of a school is its greatest asset. May the spirit that we are trying to develop among ourselves show in the work we are .trying to accomplish in the teaching Held so that not only shal' we think that we are that which we are, but our co-Workers will believe that we are, and further help us tf realize 1 CHESTRA CONCERT. The Glee Club and Orchestra, un- der the direction of Miss Shurtz, of- fered a most delightful program on the evening of May 12th. They were assisted by Miss Celia Brace, Instruc- tor of Violin in Peabody Conserva- tory, and by Mr. Even Campbell, Tenor Soloist at the Grace M. E. Church. Each artist gave a pleasing ren- dition of selections, chosen both for the quality of the music and popu- lar appeal to true music-lovers. Wienawski's "Legende," on the vio- lin, was especially attractive, as well as the ever pleasing "Souvenir" of Drdla. Mr. C'ampbell's voice won many approving comments with high 'praise for the delightful quality of the high notes. His songs were well received, among them the favorite "On The Road To Mandalay," and the,encore, "Little Gray Home In The West," while Mendelssohn's "Be Thou Faithful Unto Death," from St. Paul, gave opportunity for the greater scope of his powers. Our own Glee Club filled us all with pardonable pride and delight in its achievement. With a delight- fully chosen group of songs, they showed what our students' talent can accomplish in harmony and phrasing, under the skilful leader- ship of Miss Shurtz, our director. Among the varied types, it is hard to choose which was received with most favor, but among the favorites were the "Legend Of The Chimes," from "Robin Hood," and the "Ber- ceuse" from Joselyn, while the ii- nale, the "Recessional" was a tri- umph for both Glee Club and Or- chestra. Our Orchestra, under the leader- ship of Mr. Schoenfelder, has made wonderful progress in this, its first year, and with the Glee Club, has given us one of our most delightful evenings. M. O.

CHARLES STREET Artistic Photographer Special Discount to Normal Students I l ln the city of Scranton there is a sign which never fails to attract the attention of every stranger. Every night, rain or shine, letters of light urge everybody to "Watch Scranton Grow." We have no such device to call attention to our work but, if you will come with me some day to the south end of the school yard, you will see that our house has grown considerably in the last few weeks. The Seniors and pupils in the Elementary School began their out- door work as soon as the weather would permit, and now every day can be heard the sounds of industry as we work with hammer, chisel and saw. It is a good thing to get practical ideas of a working man's hardships first-hand, and not depend altogeth- er on the newspapers for our infor- mation. The experience of the last month have broadened our sympa- thies and understandings of those who work at such trades. We have unanimously decided that we would rather be school-teachers than brick- layers or cement mixers. If you are not ready to concede that they earn all they get, work for an hourhor so at their job, and you will. be ready to hand over their tools and also their wages without any com.- ments. It was our plan to have the house completed by commencement, but we will not be able to do so. You see we do not mean to be selfish, but wish to share our pleasures with next year's class, for it has been a pleasure to work out in the open. The frame-work is completed and the fire-place is in the process of erection. The fire-place has brought many problems and we have en- deavored, when they have confront- ed us, to face them, not to shift xthem. After the carpenter work is done, the project will be turned over to the Home Economics Department and will furnish practical material for making "a house beautiful." There 'is no end to the possibili- ties in this work. Year after year, there will be repairing to be done, the paint will need freshening, the style of furnishings will be changed. ls it worth while?

This responsibil- ity led to a study of fire places which held the interest of every member of the class throughout the Winter term. If enthusiasm had begun to wane it was certainly revived when in April the actual building began. The fireplace became again the center of interest in the Seventh Grade. As the class was responsible for an assembly on May third, it was de- cided that the program should be a brief report on some of the interest- ing phases of the work. The class was divided into four groups, each being responsible for a different topic. The first group traced the- development of the fire- place through the centuries from the rude altar of stone in the center of the baron's hall in the Middle Ages down to the scientifically built hre- place of today. The removal of the nre from the center of the room to the side wall, the addition of hob, projecting hood and chimney were mentioned in order of time. The enormous nreplaces of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, with their quaint belongings-tinder boxes, fire irons, ovens, were pictured. The boys discussed the practical side of the work, the essentials of a. good fire place, noting materials, thickness of walls, proper propor- tion of flues to opening, and espec- ially the smoke shelf. They de- scribed how they estimated the num- ber of bricks needed. A third group described the fire- place as the center of interior dec- oration-the most important archi- tectural feature of a room. They stressed the importance of having the fireplace in keeping with .the room. They showed how the over- mantel of the Gothic and Rennais- sance period iniiuenced over-mantel decorationg with pictures they il- lustrated the idea that the fireplace motive does not end with the mantel, but with the cornice of the room, and made it clear that good taste is needed in selecting mantel orna- ments and over-mantel decorations. The .fourth group described sev- eral good fireside paintings and re- cited selectious from literature de scribing fireside scenes. Some of these were descriptions of curious old Dutch fire places with quaint til- ing. Others described happy gather- ings about the hearth. These selec- tions lefl with the audience an ap- preciation not only of the beauty and cheer of an open hre upon the hearth, but also of its spiritual value --the idea of the fire place as the cf-ntcr of the home. MAY TREATS. So numerous have been the treats enjoyed in our recent assemblies that it will be impossible to mention them all here. But ask any of the girls which one they liked best and the response will be unanimous. . To use the populagr language- "they all fell for" Mr. Souvaine. You will ask-"YVho?" "Where?" "When?" "How'?" and "What?" Mr. Souvaine is one of America's noted young pianists who is travel- ing under the direction of the Na- tional Committee for the Advance- ment of Music. The subject of his lecture was the relation of popular music to the classics. He was the very personification of a story book musician, with his dark complexion, brown eyes and black hair and we were immediately charmed even be- fore we had had a chance to hear his delightfully musical voice! Having made such a good begin- ning, he proceeded to reveal' to us and to prove a truth that we had never dreamed of before. I will tell you the secret. Our much berated, popular or jazz music is really the best of classical music. Composers of "popular hits" either borrow ac- cidentally, or steal, fascinating me- lodic phrases from the works of the bed composers and use them as themes and foundations for modern popular songs. Taking these they change the time and key, and pro- bably a few notes, very often not any, and lo, and behold, they have made a "popular hit!" If you do not believe this take the the nrst theme from Beethoven's Minuette in G ,and compare it with "The Rose of No Man's Land." This melody was deliberately stolen by Al Jolson and made into that popu- lar favorite of the recent war. Af ter he hadytold us this, Mr. Souvaine proved it to us by playing both com- positions. In the same way he howed us how "I'm Always Chas- Rainbows" came from Chopin's ntasie Impromptug "My Castle of Dreams" from Chopin's Waltz in A Flatg and "Avalon" from the opera "Tosca." Mr. Souvaine told us all these things to show us that most popular melodies are really written by the masters and are loved by lovers of both popular and classical music. His plea was for people to hear more good musicg that all which is good in music may be enjoyed as well as the short phrases which are bor- rowed or stolen by composers who are not capable of thinking out their own themes. In a really good piece of music we find new beauties every time we hear it. We soon tire of the so-called jazz music simply because there is nothing new after we have heard it several times and because it is so often rendered poorly. Besides illustrations for his lec- ture, Mr. Souvaine played selections representing three types of music: 'foot music, as in Granger's Country Garden, in which rhythm is the dom- inant featureg head music as in Sou- vaine's Viennese Doll, the theme of which follows a story, and lastly heart music, having a very strong, appealing melody. Several of the compositions were played personally, but the use of the Ampico-an elec- tric player-piano, which reproduces the exact performance. It gave an artist's touch to the program. There have been many other en- joyable assembliesf. One that de- serves especial mention is the Mari- onette Show that was given by some of our Elementary School children. And after the show was over what a delightful surprise we had! Tony Sarg, himself, the King of the Pup- pet-makers ,spoke to us for a while. His talk was most interesting and we all wish you could have heard him. He pleased the children very much by drawing for them, in a. very few minutes, a smiling elephant, and as an encore, a nerce tigc-r. The children even took the black board with its nerce tiger down stairs with them and kept it for a while. R. C. PENMAN SHIP. Caroline Read, Jr. I. Penmanship! Such was the name of the monster that confronted every Normal student at the beginning of the third term. For many days over the tops of the cubicles in the Ad- ministration Hall and through the corridors of Newell Hall echoed the all important question, "Have you passed "it" yet? Our terror of "it" and the subsequent lessons was not to be long-lived, however, for that terror was soon over-come by Miss Edward's explanation of the Courtis Standard Practical Tests. As Miss Edward has spent several .years working with Mr. Courtis and lMiss Shaw in the public schools of Detroit, she is ably fitted to present the course to us. The aim of the course is to teach one to write well through self-direction, self-control, and self-appraisal. To attain this end it is necessary that the teachers have four fundamental steps in mind. The tirst step requires that the teacher have for her aim, "To teach 'the child to teach himself to write well." The second step is the re- falization that the child is his own lbest teacher. The third step re- iquires that the child have a definite -objective toward which to work, that he tries to reach it, that he measures his success or failure, that aid is 'given in the case of failure, and that a more difficult objective is given lin the case of success. The fourth step requires that the teacher take search test, at the beginning and end of each term. To carry out her purpose the teacher divides the lesson into a five minute practice period, in which the child endeavors to overcome his dif- ficultiesg a five minute period in- cluding preparation and testing, in which the child endeavors to attain a certain standardg a third period in which the child judges and scores his work. There is little room to doubt the eflicacy of the course be- cause in one month the following gains have been made: Junior I, 26 per cent.g Junior II, 23 per cent.g Junior III, 32 per cent., Junior IV, 30 per cent.: Junior V, 35 per cent.g Junior VI, 31 per cent.: Senior I, 33 per cent., Senior Il, 22 per centg Senior III, 20 per cent.

The following letter was received by one of the Fifth Grade girls in reply to a letter written to the Mex- ican Embassy, asking for informa- tion about Mexico.

EMBAJADA DE MEXICO EN LOS ESTODOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA Washington, D. C. May 4, 1922. Miss Mary Alice Wood, Towson, Md. Dear Little Girl: I have received your very inter- esting letter dated the lst of this month. I am pleased to see that you like Mexico and wish to know more about its customs, its people, etc. Under separate cover I am mail- ing you today some literature rela-I tive to my country, the reading of which I hope you will enjoy. I am enclosing you .herewith a picture of a Mexican girl dressed in some 'native costume typical of the peasantry off a certain part of the country ,which you may use to dress the doll that is to represent Mexico at the School Bazaar. You will un- derstand that costumes such as these are not really worn by Mexican girls. Availing myself of your invita-i to the left. As the first speaker of the affirmative side arose, a round of applause ran through the ranks of the Pests-only rivalled by that which came from the Normals, as their speakers came forward. What? Hear that point! They can't refute that--of course contin- uation schools are compatible with our present-day ideals of democracy. But wait! What was that girl saying--"only a temporary make-- shift-an .ideal system will provide for day schools for every child-" And then you awoke to find that the Pests were singing their peppiest songs, and the Normals answering back with songs that came from throats hoarse with excitement. "Would we get it again? For two years we had held it. What if--" But down the aisle came the judge -on the Normal side. One ear-split- ting yell of triumph, and then those Pests-valiant losers-were cheering us with all the sincerity which char- acterizes any Normal School loser. "Three times now. I never dreamed we'd win!" babbled excited Normal girls., and the Pests, with loyal determination answered back "You did win it honestly, but we'll beat you yet,"-while up in Miss Tall's office. a golden banner smiled happily to itself, as it meditated on the eccentricities of these queer mor- tals, anyway!

There I was, seated in the pho- tographer's spindle-legged, highly ornamental, mahogany chair, with the repeated warning of my family still ringing in my ears. "Do try to look natural. Remember the last one you had taken. Fix your hair and hold your shoulders up. But for4'land's sake look natural." Hav- ing never noticed myself when I was looking particularly natural, I knew very little about going about look- ing that way. The photographer had told me to fasten my eyes on the top of the door and hold them there. I did so. Then remembering the admonitions of my family to "look natural," I tried to arrange myself accordingly, but 'still kept my eyes fastened, with a far away look, on the top of the door and my lips open about one- eighth- of an inch to give the effect- of a pleasant smile. The longer I held that smile the sicker and more strained my face felt, until I began to think that I would never be able to laugh again. I tried to arrange my hands and feet in a reposeful, yet natural way. My hands seemed to expand to the size of boxing gloves. I tried to sit on one, while I laid. the other in my lap but this wouldn't do, so I gave up. My feet grew- arger and larger. I could feel my hair falling down my back. My smile grew painful and I knew it was getting actually silly. The photographer ,tilted my chin about two inches closer to the ceil- ing, saying, "Hold it that way just a second, that's fine, now look pleas- ant." Then he dived under his black cloth and, "click," ,the thing was done. ATHLETICS. The following are the results of the games played this year: Girls' Volley Ball.

The old conception of a library as a place where boolfs are gealously guarded by a spectacled Cerberus, who frowns on any attempt to bor- row one from the sacred shelves, is rapidly vanishing before the modern idea of the library as a tool for edu- cation, and for life itself. V Statistics alone are not adequate to give a clear idea of the work done by the students within the library. However, it may be interesting to know that during the last five months 17,003 books have been cir- culated for overnight besides those drawn for use during the day. The approximate attendance for that period was 26,831. The bulk of the books circulated falls into threegroups: Education, including psychologyg- English liter- ature, and History. Other smaller collections are as widely used in comparison to 'the number of titles ovdhed by the library, and many of these classes need development. lt is our aim next year not only to provide for the immediate needs of each department for reference and research, but also to build up a bet- ter collection of fiction, biography, and illustrated juvenile books. With more book cases and books, and some additional decoration, We feel that the library can fulfill its mis- ilflie train was slowly winding itsl sion of helpfulness during the com- way .gound the so-called Horse-shoe ing year to an increasing degree.

As it sank, the pines only seemed to realize their duty more for they became darker and darker, and sent long, black shadows over the lake until the sil- ver of the full moon cast its light upon it as if to be guard for the night.

"Tie up your blanket. pitch it in' the truck, and hike, hike, hike." This is what the Girl Scouts did on Friday April 27 After rovis . . . p - ions for food and clothing were made. the Scouts sought shelter where "Mother Nature calls her chil- dren." at Camp Marirnarsh. No bell was needed to call the tired, hungry group to partake of "hot doggies," rolls, cheese, crack-, ers, lettuce, tomatoes and hot cocoa., No one carried two trays either. In- stead-with plate and cup in hand, each scout ran down hill to a cool spring, where she prepared her plate for the morning meal. Dodge ball, leap frog, racing and frolicking took place on the green hills until evening passed- into night. Then around the fireplace the crowd gathered to sing, dance and tell stories. Some scouts are sleepy- while others are regular owls, 'but midnight found each head upon some bed dreaming of the coming day's adventures.

Elsie Melvin. - All was hustle and bustle and hur- ry as the first blare of the big brass band told us that the circus parade was coming down Main streetg big ifolks rushed from homes, stores, and i work shops, and little folks scream- ing for joy, at the nrst beat of the drum, rushed pell-mell from the school house, each eager to catch the first glimpse of the big elephants. As the band moved forward, the lady bareback rider caught and held the eyes of the expectant onlookers. Next came the fake Siamese elephant in his pure glistening coat of white- Wash. In his gilded cage the tiger pranced to and fro, his eyes flash- ing fire at the crowd who had the freedom he desired. From the next cage came a grunting and scratch- ing sound,' telling the circus folks that the big, fierce -grizzly would make more than shivers run down their spine if his cage door were tc open just one moment. The mod- estly caged little brown bear, eating his piece of watermelon, looked up eagerly as he passed by. Perched upon her gilded and crimson velvet- ed coach, drawn by a. pair of gold and black harnessed, milk white horses, sat the Cleopatra snake charmer. As the' huge python en- twined himself around -her syilph- like form, she slowly and lazily loosed nimgpeisent his head, and looked brazenly in his eyes. Then a. glimpse of the Wild and Wooly West, Indians and Broncho Busters passed in review. Shrieks of delight came from the throats of the little boys, as the Indians and Rough Riders performed feats, which are but dreams that come once in every boy's life. Three pairs of huge elephants that seemed to jar the very earth as they walked, closed up the parade. As a fresh blare of the band was heard in the street next to Main, every one rushed wildly there to see the circus parade all over again. Louise-What an awful gash you have in your forehead!

The motto, "Be His Pal," of Boys' Week, became indeed, the motto of the boys of our Elementary School. It varied somewhat from its origi- nal sense in that each boy became his father's pal. The boys proved the strength of their motto by giv- ing a "Father and Son" supper on the evening of May 5. As soon as Miss Stone gave them permission to have their supper they enthusiasti- cally began to plan for it. Their first duty was to send invi- tations to the fathers of all the boys' and girls of the school. These in- vitations were written by the boys of the Seventh Grade as a part of their class work in English. After much enjoyable discussion a letter was formulated which they had typed. The envelopes were, how- Having sent invitations, their real work in prleparation for the supper began by planning the menu. Some readers will say to themselves and possibly to others, "Now, what does a boy know about planning a menu?" Such thinkers, should only have been present to hear our boys, for they do know how to tastefully plan a menu. They did not plan it lavish- ly either for they wanted to serve, as they expressed it, "A full meal with as little cost as possible." Did they do it? Ask the fathers who attended. The secret of the success of thc lsupper, as in every other success, lay in its careful organization. In order to work to the best advantage the boys arranged themselves into committees. They had committees for each activity: reception, prepar- ation, serving, and cleaning up. Is the art of cooking and serving pe- culiar only to girls? My answer, af- ter this experience, is most assuredly in the negative. Could you have seen the boys hustling around in the Cafeteria you would have thought they were experienced chefs. We were not only proud of our boys in this part of the work, but also in their manner of entertaining. They responded most excellently to the toasts given by prominent guests. After thoroughly enjoying the sup- per, the fathers and other members of the Te-Pa-Chi Club met in the auditorium for the pleasant climax of the evening. Here the boys gave their guests a most unusual sur- prise by demonstrating their ath- letic ability. No father ever dreamed that his son could perform real acro- batic stunts. Relay races, drills and wrestling thrilled the entire audi- ence to such an extent that the fath- ers wished they were boys again. The enthusiasm which was at fulld height during the games was only a continuation of that zeal with which the boys began their work at 8 A. M. by peeling potatoes, and skin- ning tomatoes. Not once during the whole day did the enthusiasm. wane --not even when the time came for dishwashing. CRAFT CLUB. Now is your opportunity to be- come a member of the Craft Club next year.

On April 29, the 5th and 6th Grades of the Elementary S-:hoo1, to- gether with Juniors V and VI of the M. S. N. S., took a trip to Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore: this gall,- Iery being regarded as having one of the greatest private Art collec- tions in the entire country. W'e were most eager to go, as Miss Snyder in preparations for our trip, had shown us lantern slides so that we might become better acquainted with the works of sculpture and painting. as seen at the gallery. When eleven o'clock arrlvedg the hour when the gallery is opened, the student who had charge of many of the tickets was not to be found and it seemed as though all of us tseventy in numberj were not go- ing to receive these free tickets, but Miss Snyder came to our rescue with extra tickets and our distressed look was changed. With such a large crowd, Miss Snyder was kept busy explaining to all of us the pic- tures and other interesting Works of art. The following are a few of the in- teresting things we saw. In the back of the Main Corridor of the Gallery is a beautiful marble statue of Ariadne, by Mr. Hans Sciiuler, of Baltimore, for which he received a gold medal in the Paris Sa- lon. To the right among many cur- ious and beautiful works of art we found a Japanese incense burner from one of the great temples of Japan. In the centre of the loggia is a large Italian bronze door of the style used in the XVI century. Near this is a seatnd stone figure and a carved stone rattlesnake from Mexico. Op- posite this is a life sized terra cotta of Adam and Eve. This was done by Della Robbia. To thwt of this are stones with hierog ypnics apd relief figures from the Egyptian tombs. At the 'head of the steps is 21 l0ggia Of 'two stories surrounding a covers-rl'court. In the center is a bronzfystatue by Roderi of "Le Pen- Quilt." We then pass into a long room lian carved wood ceiling taken from a palace in the walls of the room wooden panels and two of furniture illustrating art during the French with an Ita which was Milan. On are carved large pieces the carver's Renaissance. Crossing to thc other side of the bnilrling we saw the Louis XII Room. The bronzes and marbles there are of the early XVIII century. In the room is a case of German clocks and u German casket with painting on glass. Another interesting thing this room contained is the Etruscans vases together with a single Greek vase, a stone Venus and six Tamagra figures. Some of the other rooms contain I German, Spanish, Dutch, French and English pictures. The following are some of the most beautiful: "Cross- ing the Ford," by Gainesborough. Portrait of a. Lady of Raeburn, Por- traits of the Countess of Wilton, by Lawrence. The Attack at Dawn, by De Neville, The Sheperdess, by Mil- let. Although this short account does not half describe the beautiful things we saw, I hope that lf any other students have the opportuni- ty to go to Walter's Art Gallery, they will avail themselves of the privilege, because there's no other part of the course in Fine Arts more helpful and more enjoyable. MIR. MEDAL SPEAKS. N. MAIN CORRJIDOR. Administration Building Maryland State Normal School May 5, 1922. Mr. D. Bate Banner, Normal Literary Society, Md. State Normal School, Towson ,Maryland. My dear "Ban": I see that you are still holding your position with the Normal Liter- ary Society. Since last night, I also am settling down once more to my old job-that of artistically decorat- ing the Normals' side of the "contest box." Last night, Thursday, May 4, was "contest night." You should have seen how excited the whole Normal School was-both Pests and Normals. . Over me too! Lots of friends and patrons of the school were there to watch the very absorb- ing struggle for me in the big audi- torium. First of all there was the school song and after it the Normal and Pestalozzi Society songs. The Nor- mal's one-act play, "Two Crooks and a Lady," was interesting, as was also the Pest story, "The Voyage of the Wee Red Cap," told by Isabel Brian. The Normal story, "Wee Willie Win- kie," told by Medora Moore was so real that, as I listened, actual chills of fear for Wee Willie Winkie and his companion shook me on my ring. However, the Pest play capped the climax. As I watched the cast "Spreading The News." I laughed till I really jingled. I hope that at the meeting of the Alum- ni Association on the tirst Sat- urday in June the members will find a place in the program of its activities for the re-appearance oi' Mrs. Bartley-Fallon and her Udacent comrade." I was sure the Pests had won, so while the judges were making their decision I was preparing to receive blue and gold ribbons to help me the better to decorate the Pest's side ol' the contest box" in 1922-23. I really rlld want to change my position as l had been with the Normals three years and a new residence would l i have been ver theless, when me to Bertha Normals, I of it till next year. dorsed the speech of President of the Pests, urged the Pests not to "give Ship." - V 3 I My dear "Ban," I hope next year, we will be together under 1ilie.Bluo and Gold. If you know any! people who didn't come last Thursday and be interested in aelgood as well as a worthwhile. entertainment, tell theminot to miss the contest next year.

"A glorious charter, deny it who can, Is breathed ip ,the words, 'I'm an Engllshman."' t - -Eliza Cook. -, The English nation embraces many people of whom, although they are our ancestors, we know veryf lit- tle. Do you know that the .small island which includes the country'-of England, owns one-third of the land of the world, that she controls these countries very successfully, and, that many of these countries are large, rich countries, such as Canada, In- dia and Egypt? These people, who speak the same tongue as ours are a liberty-loving people. Shakespeare said: "This England never did, nor never shall, lie at the proud foot of a conqueror." Nor are they seldsh with their lib- erty. Hindu princes remain on their thrones in India, Canada practically governs herself. They are really so fine that Rhodesia wants to remain a crown colony. England contains most of the sue: cessful business men of the world. They can import the raw material, manufacture the products in Eng- land, ship it back and sell it cheaper than the natives who manufacture it at home. Why? "Because," the woman's reason, they own their own ships, their business houses are of long standing, they use "their gray matter." With England controlling ,one- third of the land of the world, we who would school iight, ,must admit these people are the most successful colonizers. They go there, they stay there, they live there, they die there. Americans, be proud of yourselves, you're their tlrst cousins.

Perhaps the teaching profession would be more closely knit together in fraternal feeling if there was an oath comparable to the Hippocratic Oath. The Seniors, this year, became interested in this and framed the following oath which they named "The Aristotelian Oath": I do hereby swear, as a member of the teaching profession, to do my duty toward the Nation, the State, the County, the community, and the school in which I teachg to heartily co-operate with other members of the profession in every wayg to willingly recognize and appreciate the good works of my fellow teachers, to do my utmost to further the physical, so- cial, mental, and moral growth of my pupils, to be honest, sincere, and just to myself, my pupils, and my co-workersg to refrain always from speaking in public anything which is, or should be a secret hearing rela- tionship to the profession.

Anybody making a list of the twelve men whom he considers the best educated in the Uni-ted States today would most certainly include in that list ex-President Woodrow Wilson, Yet when the question-"What constitutes an educated person today?" was put to him, he replied, "The question you propound in your letter of January eighteenth is too much tor me. Ask me something easy." From this answer you may gain some idea of what a momentous question it seems to a mere Junior just begin- ning the study of Principles of Education, Methods Underlying the Teach- ing, ot English, of Mathematics, and of Industrial Arts, and why she should turn for help to books and people wiser than herself. Modern essayists have been brave enough to attack the problem which makes a president pause and causes a school girl hours of ponder- ing. Among these essayists is Katherine Gerould, who says, "A riddle is not a riddle when there is no answer." She considers this question unsolvable. But she believes that the answer, if there were any, would be a solution of one of the most inter- esting problems in all the world. She adds that outside of China it can- not be answered so as to satisfy more than a very small number ot' people. To her it seems that each man must make his dwn definition of an edu- cated person. She likens this riddle to the one given by the Sphinx, which was guaranteed unsolvable until the answer of Aedipus. In spite of this she also has attempted an answer, "The minimum, then, is: ability to use one's native 1anguage.correctlyg a general notion of the problems of the race, and an idea ot' hbw the race has tried to solve some of them- either mental, spiritual, political or physical: some degree of orientation in time. Proper cultivation of any field of knowledge will give this to any average mind. Some will get it by a nicely arranged smattering. But beyond this, in the direction of the specific, I doubt if you can go." Another noted woman essayist, Agnes Repplier, also agrees that it is uncommonly difficult to define an educated man today. In her essay, "Education," found in the Atlantic Monthly for April, 1922, she sums up her view: "This is where we stand today. The elimination of Greek from the college curriculum blurred the high light, the supreme distinction. ot' scholarship. The elimination of Latin as an essential study leaves us without any educational standard save a correct knowledge of English, a 4 MRS. EDXVARD W.

The scientist discards many of these studies as not being germane to his subject. The professional student deals with them as charily as possible. The future financier fears to embarrass his mind with things he does not need to know. As modern essayists did not seem to answer the question very sat- isfactorily, this puzzledJunior turned to famous contemporaries for an answer. Surely, she thought, some of the noted writers, educators and public men of Baltimore City can certainly solve the knotty problem. So she turned for help to them. Mr. Sydney L. Nyburg, writer and historian, in his interesting let- ter says, "I have read the Gerould essay and also Dr. Cabot's book on the subject as well as Mr. H. G. Well's sprightly preachment "Joan and Peter," which seems to promise so much light at the beginning and has given you so little at the end. Out of reading and thinking, I have come to a most undogmatic viewpoint on the subject. I don't believe a knowledge of Latin or Greek or Mathematics, or any other specific thing or any group of subjects can be taken as a hall-mark, the presence or absence of which may be used to distinguish the educated man from the uneducated. But an educated man must have a love for learning of some kind, and from that love must have sprung a thirst strong enough to have caused him to make his love an intimate part of his life. In my judgment a man is cer- tainly not educated merely because he can do things wellg nor, on the other hand, is the pedant who has acquired a dry, memorized, familiarity with some branch of learning, truly educated. I think there must be as real affection for some particular branch of learning-not necessarily classics-and that the fruiits of this affection and the study it entails- not as a matter of duty, but because the man really wants to know more of the subject which interests him-these must become part of the web and Woof of his mind and emotions." - Next, Dr. Bernard C. Steiner, of Enoch-Pratt Free Library, thinks, "A person is educated whose natural powers of intellect have been devel- oped through teaching so that the mind of the person is equipped to meet the emergencies of life as they must be faced. The more power a person has acquired to grapple with and overcome the difficulties which arise throughout his life, the better educated is that person." That ripe old scholar, Dr, James W. Bright, of Johns Hopkins University, has given not only a definition of an educated person, but also his idea of a true scholar. The definition of an educated person may be comprised in two terms: "A disciplined mind and nobility of character. The mind must be trained in right methods of thoughtg the sympathy, perceptions and all the truest activities of heart and spirit must be educated and set free from perversities. The true scientist, or scholar, pursues knowledge, devotes himself to the discovery of truth, with deep emotion, with love of truth, with patience, tolerance, open-mindedness and sympa- thy toward everything that contributes to the recognition of what is true and good, and therefore, as Plato says, beautiful. The scholar who does not thus pursue knowledge emotionally as well as intellectually, is not of the highest type." V "Now, the scholar's philosophy of life is deeply reverential before the mysteries of human destiny. He belongs to the most truthful because the most truth-loving of men. Nobility of character is conceived by him to be the essential basis of a worthy life. He cannot compromise with unreasoned assumptionsg he hates wilful evasion of truth: but he is most tolerant of human weakness, because he best understands it." Dr. Edward F. Buchner, Director of the School of Education of Johns Hopkins University, has given probably the most helpful definition: "I like to think of an educated person as anyone being placed in any situ- ation who is able and interested to- observe the facts most characteristic of that situation, to analyze these data into their constituents and from Such an analysis, to arrive at inferences whose validity will be tested by 5 the success of their application to the problems inherent in the situation which suggest these fundamental types of mental response. One should also not exclude from his idea. of an educated person the ability to use the English language with both individual and group satisfaction, nor the ability to respond to the various social demands made upon a citizen in a modern republic. In brief: an educated person is one who is able to find things out for himself and, when found, to turn them to the good of others." It is interesting to note how a man whose profession has called him into the so-called practical affairs of life, views the problem. Mr. Henry G. Shirley, Roads and Sanitary Engineer of Baltimore County, after discussing very interestingly education, both professional and technical, concludes: "Practically speaking, however, I should say that anyone who can read and write and speak the English language correctly and forcibly, knowing how to construct sentences that would be most forcible, keep up with current events, and takes a general interest, would be a fairly well educated person. I am inclined to believe that one who has had reading, and writing and arithmetic, the English branches, and a few of the older languages, sufficient to give him the knowledge of the derivation of words, or who reads the best literature today in an intelligent and absorbing way, would be the best educated person, much better than those who specialize along certain lines, and become very efficient on a, special subject, and remain very deficient on other branches." "You are digging into a field that has so many sides to it, that it is practically unlimited, and it is really hard to find a definite conclusion. The greatest education of all however, is an abundance of good, old, hard, common, horse sense." Through nine long weeks this humble student has grown thin and pale in the pursuit of this will-o'-the-wisp. Finally, exhausted by the ef- fort to catch the elusive being, she has abandoned the chase and now ap- peals to her teacher in the words of Mr. Wilson: "The question is too much for me. Ask me something easy." RUTH COLE. NOW SMILE NU SIGMAS.

If you are not the proud C?J possessor of freckles, perhaps all these experiences which I shall relate, will be new to you, but, if you have those cherished brown spots on your face, the story is an old one. Ever since I can remember I have had freckles. When I got them and how I got them, is an unsolved mysteryg but there they are, and there they seem to stay despite all my edorts, trials and pains to remove them. There are several old adages which might tit in this essay very nicely. One, "experience is the best teacher," and the other "Seek advice, but don't always use it." Experince has surely taught me and I have sought advice and used itg as for the conclusion, I will leave that to you. Now, these freckles of mine did not annoy me for a long time. In fact, I thought they were a part of me and I simply had to have themg but I Hnally arrived at the age when I decided to dispose of them if pos- sible, for they decidedly marred my beautyf?J and I surely hated the names-"Freckles" or "Turkey Egg"--and other cognomens of that na- ture. I could not and would not endure it. X Some of my playmates had heard that, if you got up early and went out into the Woods to a hollow stump and washed your face in rain water, your freckles were "goners." Several of us who were sorely aiiilicted went to look for the hollow stump, and look where we would, not one stump was hollow. We took it upon ourselves to hollow out a stump and experiment. It took us several days to successfully complete our task, for indeed, that stump was far from old, and I think the stump was either that of a hickory or dogwood tree, for "hard" does not express it. Finally the stump was concave and we were ready for a nice rainy spell. It would not rain. Indeed, we decided there was going to be a drought. Days passed by but not one spatter of rain fell. One day a very kind thunder shower came to our rescue. We all rushed to our cherished stump and proceeded to wash our faces vigorously in the rain water. Of course, we had not told one soul, because we wanted to spring one grand surprise by suddenly appearing fair and freckleless, so we returned home to await the transformation. But alas! that ti-me never came. Were we disappointed and angry? Indeed we were! If we only knew Who started that, but we did not know, so We let the matter drop quietly. Time passed, and my freckles grew more hideous than ever. Tney just grew by the millions HJ and were the darkest brown. I complained of them continually until some fond friend took pity upon me and told me to get up early some morning and wash my face with dew. Surely this was simple enough, and I would try anything if those freckles would only leave. I would try that the very next morning, so I arose unusually early. It was a lovely morning, but rather warm, and dry. It was my usual habit to sleep rather late and mother always had to call more than once before I would arise, so upon seeing me so early she immediately thought I was ill, and insisted that I must be sick. I could not tell her 7 what I was going to do, but I did coax her into believing that I was per- fectly well. Again, much to my disappointment, I found no dew. Why on earth did it have to be that special day when no dew had fallen? I had to wait a few more daysg but several days later I got nap early again for the same reason and had to go to all the trouble of convincing mother that I was not ill. There was a heavy dew that morning. I had already decided where I should perform the magic, so I went out into our side yard, where the grass was tall and very wet. 1 pulled a. big handful of grass and leaves and rubbed it over my entire face and arms. I repeated this several times, for I wanted no mistake about those freckles leaving. I let it dry in thoroughly and spoke of it to no one. But merciful pity! The next day I could not open my eyes! In my performance of the previous morning I had not only pulled grass, but "poison ivy." Therefore, it is needless to go further in stating what followed, but I will say the results were not those desired. Far from it! After this horrible experience, and many "heated lectures," I harclly had the heart to try any more cures or curses for some time. I had read in a paper or magazine, that lemon juice and orchid white would remove freckles, so, after waiting a while I finally prevailed on mother to let me try it. She yielded reluctantly, and said if I did something else foolish, similar to my previous act, that I would suffer for it, and I did. Perhaps you know that people who freckle have thin skin. Well, that held true with me. I never knew anything but fire could burn as that did, nor did I dream that anything but itch itself, could terrify as that preparation, but I bore it as meekly as possible, and I might add that I don't think my face had, or ever has been washed as often in one day as it was that one day. I thought I was through forever. I never wanted to try anything again. I would just hide myself somewhere ,anywhere, if I had to always have those terrible freckles. The thoughts of them really made me quite miserable. I made one more attempt. Mother grew so weary of my complaints and knew so well my hatred for freckles that she bought me some very expensive freckle cream, which was absolutely harmless and would work wonders, but it made the complexion peel. I thought I could stand that after all else I had endured, so. I used it and it worked beautifully. My face and arms peeled and I was as fair as could be. Now I was sure that l was free from freckles forever, and I was serenely happy. This happi- ness and bliss lasted only one winter, and when the next March came, lo, and behold, my freckles came back in droves, worse than ever. I was in the depths of despair, but after much thought and many comforting words I decided that freckles were not half so bad as they might be and I guess I could live with them as well' as without them, so I became recon- ciled. To this day I am plentifully sprinkled and I guess I always will be. E. JONES, '23. ,.l..1... "IN THE SPRING A STUDENT'S FANCY-" "Well, tonight is the last night we can possibly go! We must be out giving County tests all next week, and then Commencement. Please, let's go tonight," begged Kitty, ever the ring-leader in nocturnal plans. "Why not?" asked Phyllis, "I want to go tonight, too," and the others acquiescing, the plan was made that the girls of the D. B. D. Sorority, should, as the clock struck twelve, slide down the laundry chute in the main corridor and dance on the North Campus in the moonlight in cos- tumes made for the fairy dance in "A Mid-Summer Night's Dream," the Senior Class Play. This was to be followed by a "feed" at the foot of the big Campus oaks. Ding, dong-and as the tower clock struck twelve, eighteen bare- footed girls dressed in flowing robes of rainbow hue, with dark locks and 8 M N 1 Y f I i S wi' 5, 4 l I i el '1 fi ,g W A 5 I. 1 N ,Z EY I is E4 L 3 W Vl ' 1 ki EI? 19 ik QU ,,3 if Q 'Q T In :I S si V gr if F A X ' N - k'4 .. n Y r "ill - r .. ..

Point heelfpoint toe-curtsy, and away we go. The dance was Ended and the girls, wildly enthusiastic, raced to the corner where the 'l'feed" was spread. ' "Sufferin' catnsh"-came a terrined exclamation from beyond the hedge, followed by a squeaking treble. "Oh, Georgie, what d'you s'pose it is?" "Hush, girls," cried lC'arol Sheridan. "There's two youngsters watching us from the road-Heavens. Oh, girls! it's Georgie Fields, one of my pupils-he knows me, I'm sure. Oh, he'1l tell, and I shall never be able to stand before my class again. Oh, what? but here, Cecil, her twin, interrupted. "Do be quiet, Carrie. Why, I actually believe they think we're fairies or spooks. Listen to them talk-they're really afraid of us! Oh, joy, I know what you can do." - Emboldened by her sister's discovery, Carol started toward the hedge, tripping lightly on her toes, white arms high above her head. "Good night, she's coming. Run, Mary, run!" but Georgie's en- treaty was stopped by a stern command: "George Fields, come here. What are you doing at this time of night here on the lawns-and Mary with you, too." "Honest, if it ain't a real fairy, then I'm a sinner," was Georgie's whisper to his companion, and then in a higher voice-"Are you Queen Mah?" ' , "Yes," said Carol, as a titter echoed from the oaks. "I am Queen Mab and I desire that you shall come beneath yonder tree and account for yourself." " "Please, dear fairy," came Mary's voice from a very dry throat, While a thumping heart accentuated each word, "Georgie and me-ve been to Helen Cook's party, and I got out our back door to come over here to watch Georgie smoke. Bill Reed showed him how today. He just started to smoke when you-oh-oh-I'm scared!-Oh, Georgie!" At a word from Carol-for the present, Queen Mah-the other sev- enteen Iigures closed in on the two culprits, a titter passing through the ranks as they ran around the circle-talthough Georgie can solemnly swear that their voices were the voices of death and that they flew, rather than walked.J "Listen," said Queen Mab, in a stage whisper, "You are in the fairy ring and unless you do what we wish, you shall be changed into a bull frog and your playmate into an eel. You must write on this lily leaf fit had served as a paper naper napkinj this message: "Serve First lunch tomorrow at 11.30 and send up the lunch that includes strawberry short- cake and chicken salad intended for the supervisorsg they're well fed enough, and keep your bean soup for them at two o'clock. If this order is disobeyed you lose your life at ten tomorrow night." Signed, A FRIEND OF THE STUDENTS. "and carry it," continued the Queen, "and drop it in yon dragon's win- dow," fthe new chef to this time had resided therel. "If you fail to do this you know the penalty," and a fairy wand, previously a preserve ladle, hung dangerously near Georgie's freckled nose. . "Yes, we'll do it," promised Georgie, as he scribbled with the legi- bility of a second-rate thug. "and then what will you do?" "Send you home," was the answer, but by that time two pairs of feet, with the speed of mercury, were nearing the Chef's window. Crash! and a white ball attached to a string, landed beside the head of Lars Nelson, the new Norwegian cook. As he awoke from the dream of a pirate ship on which John Silver was handing out "black spots"-and here was a dream nearly realized. 'K 'F 4' 1' 9 Georgie, Georgie," echoed an irate maternal voice on? the edge of the Campus. and again, as eighteen figures passed the first floor tire es- cape of Carney Hall-"George!" ' 11.45 A. M.-All's well, at least in the dining room of Carney 1-Iall, where sixty students' eyes round with surprise, plunge forks into heaping dishes of chicken salad "to see if it's real." But in the base- ment a terrified young Norwegian straps a black trunk as he glances ap- prehensively, first out of the door and then up the steps, fearful, perhaps, lest either a hungry supervisor or a grinning demon will arrest his flight. And up in the class room of the other building, the low drone of voices is broken by "Georgie,-it hurts Miss Sheridan to do it, but, if you can't find how many bricks it will take to build the fireplace of your Industrial Arts house, you may stay in." BETTY BOWMAN, '22. 0' - vm Ducks. I A new story is going around the financial districts about an old Southern negro, who was asked by the proprietor of a store how he hap- pened to need credit when he had a good cotton crop. "De ducks got 'bout all dat cotton, sah." was the mournful reply. "What do you mean, the ducks got it?" "Well, you see, explained the old man. "I sent dat, cotton up to Memphis and dey deducks de freiguts, dey deducks de storage charges, and dey deducks de commission, and dey deducks de taxes. Yes, sah, de ducks got 'bout all at cotton, an' dat's why l'se here, sah." , wonns. "Mase," said the elder colored man, "is you married?" "I a'in't sayin' I ain't," said Mose. "I't askin' you is you ain't, I'se askin' you ain't you is?" "George," said the teacher, "is there any connecting link between the animal and vegetable kingdom?" "Yeth, ma'am," said George. "Hash."

NORMAL SCHOOL-A FOSTER MOTHER OF IDEALS. lBy An Alumna.J The greatest work which a training school for teachers can do for its students, is to foster within them IDEALS of the profession. The teacher who grows most rapidly and most surely, is the teacher who has sets of ideals toward which she is working. When she reaches the ideals she has, she strikes out to End new and higher ones. The fail- ures we find among the teachers of a group, are often due, not so much to lack of training, and to lack of ability, as they are to a lack of ideals. Many untrained teachers far surpass some trained ones, because they have more natural aptitude for the work, but unless they gain ideals from Summer School or from visiting other teachers, their growth is limited. They will at any rate make more progress than the trained 12 0 I K. E. Krout-K. E. K.-Keen and' Ever Kind. 91 .1 1 ,.. n I ". 11 "1 fi I I.. I . 1. f 7 ' .11 ' .- 1,11 .Aff -.11..

A teacher of poor ideals is the hardest kind of teacher to help. She has no criteron for judging her own work, or for understanding criticism, especially in the types of work which cannot be measured by the standard tests. She can have no ambition to do better work,-a lack of ideals brings dissatisfaction or despair, either of which is death to pro- gress. ' A Train-ing School or Normal School is the place where teachers get their first' sets of ideals. After some years of experience, during which :ime they reach, or nearly reach, those goals, they go to Summer School or visit with other teachers to get new and higher aims. Ideals of School Room Appointments and Decorations, School Management ,and Control, School Room Recitations, Materials and Equipment, Achievements of the Children, How Children Should Read, How Children Should Sing, are all gained in the Normal School, and teachers should go -out from t-here with clearly defined aims and purposes. A student who graduates from the Normal School, even one lack- ing. in teaching ability, who clings to the ideals she has gained there, and works persistently toward them, not allowing the poor conditions of her teaching position to lower her standards, has as sure a chance of succeed- ing as her gifted sister of natural ability. M. Theresa Weidefeld. THE HONORARY llEMBER OF THE CLASS OF '23. It is not necessary to explain in detail the characteristics of Mrs. Stapleton, the honorary members of the Class of '23, as she is known by all at M. S. N. S. Mrs. Stapleton has been the most intimate friend of this class and besides meeting her at class meetings most of the sections have had Mrs. Stapleton as their English instructor. Many times the class of '23 has had to face difficult situations which seemed impossible until Mrs. Stapleton with her never failing advice and help directed us toward success. The class of '23 will forever be indebted to Mrs. Stapleton for her whole-hearted interest, and co-operation in our work. H. COX, '23. Y WYE CAN AID. Viola Almony. "Everyone is invited to an entertainment on the North Campus." Everyone went and everyone took part in his County stunt. This event marked the beginning and not the end of many Y. W. activities. At Installation Service on Sunday night, two hundred girls lit their little candles from the big ones, to signify their desire for membersi-ip. At an early vesper service, the girls who had visited Eagles Mere, told of their trip, as delegates to the convention. It was hinted that such a trip would be open to those girls who had the big desire to go. Throughout the year the vespers have been in charge of girls or outside speakers, who have given an idea of what real paths for service are open to each one of us. In giving aid to the suffering Armenians, we have followed one big path. The cabinet did not hesitate to plunge into work. Indeed their efforts have not been without success for chapel services and Bible Class in addition to regular Sunday night service, have been started. Chapel service, held every Tuesday and Thursday morning, takes the place of the devotional service in the assembly period. ' As a business enterprise, a supply room was opened to meet the gt A 13 needs of the students. Though small in size, it is an undertaking that will grow. An able captain and crew to steer the ship Y. W., has been found in this yea1"s crew.

May the new cabinet be able to lift the Blue Triangle high. May your goal be a hundred per cent. membership. a AN APPRECIATION FROM THE STATE SUPER-INTENDENT. I am in hearty accord with the purposes and ideals of "The Oriole," and of the Maryland State Normal School. ' The development of the normal schools of the State is so intimately bound up with the State program for education that the growth of the normal schools in student enrollment and in effectiveness of results, as shown by the work of the graduates, is a fair basis upon which to judge the progress of education in Maryland. Sincerely yours, ALBERT S. COOK, State Superintendent. MESSAGES FROM OUR HIGH SCHOOLS. If The hope of the world lies in the right education of its people. To this end, teaching is the noblest calling. The proper place to prepare for this work is the State Normal School. ' MARK CREASY, Principal Chestertown High School. THE ORIOLE-may it constantly prove a harbinger of new life to Maryland State Normal! As the need of more trained teachers for the schools of Maryland grows, so may the capacity in students and equipment of Maryland's chief teacher-making Institution increase to meet that need. The schools of Maryland are looking eagerly to the young men and women in our State Normal for well-trained teachers so that the efliciency of our schools may fully equal their cost. JOHN S. HILL, Principal Stockton High School. ,1 . Though we may be graded according to various educational scales and theories, the real measure of a teacher's success lies in the number of pupils we have helped to become useful citizens-of the per cent. of cur boys and girls in whom we have developed latent talents to their full fruit. This is our worthy aim, and years alone can measure our success. ALLEN CARLSON, , Principal Nanticoke High School.

It is hoped that lvlaryland, through its Normal Schools, will educate a sufficient number of teachers to fill all positions Within its borders. The best way to improve our Normal Schools is for all principals to co-operate with them in every way passible. EARLE M. SAWYER Principal Sparks' Agricultural High School. Thank you for your invitation to write "three sentences" for the "Oriole." It makes me feel like a character in the Arabian Nights-and there's the nrst sentence. For my second, I can do no better than to con- gratulate you upon your near admission into the ranks of that profession pre-eminently "built for service": the profession of teaching. And for my third, I earnestly advise you to have a good time this summer, and to for- get for six weeks at least, everything connected with schools and teaching. ERNEST J. BECKER, Principal Western High School. Let not prejudice, a partisan spirit, nor egotism close the mind. Be alert toward new suggestions, new ideas, and old ideas in new form. If this be your state of mind you will more nearly learn the truth and re- ceive greater gain. - CHARLES H. REMSBERG, Principal Girls' High School, Frederick. To visit the Maryland State Normal is indeed an inspirationg its beautiful surroundings, its splendid squipment and its excellent teachers all make a visit there one worth while. The Rock Hall High School Seniors visited the school recently and came home very enthusiastic, and several have expressed an ardent desire to enroll as pupils in the fall. The courtesy of the Faculty and Miss Lida Lee Tall, the principal, was highly appreciated. She made the day especially enjoyable by ap- pointing the Rock Hall students at the school a committee to entertain the visitors. - W. S. P. STRANG, -5 Principal Rock Hall High School I certainly wish the Oriole every success in meeting, as it has done, a distinctive n.eed, and that need is presenting to our High School Seniors the advantages presented to' Maryland High School graduates by 'our State Normal at Towson. I We feel justly proud of the work being done in the State Normal School, and acknowledge our indebtedness to The Oriole for the admirably effective way in which it has mirrored these facts to our student body of the high schools in our beloved State. . H. H. RANSOM, Principal Cambridge High School. To those who are about to become teachers I would say that 'An undue consideration for the tritles which beset one's path completely ob- scures the mind for an appreciation of the bigger things of life! ' HARRY S. BEALL, Principal Rockville High School. 15 Personal interviews with the graduates of Towson High School who are students of the State Normal School, convince me that they are doing excellent work and that they are finding pleasure in doing so. In my judgment this is attributable to the fact that a democratic spirit prevails and that a spirit of co-operation is manifested by both the faculty and the student body. May the membership rapidly increase so that every school in the State of Maryland will be taught by a teacher holding a First Grade Certificate. ARTHUR C. CROMMER, Principal Towson High School. Through Miss Smith and Mr. Gibson, with his reels of movies, we have become more intimately acquainted with your school. From the pic- tures and the students we have seen, it seems to be a very happy and profitable place for young men and women. J. S. FRENCH, Per C. F. Principal of Easton High School.

What is the criterion for membership in the Delta Beta Delta Sorority? When selecting the prospective members of the sorority the council considers the following characteristics: congeniality, initiative, re- finement and good moral character. These qualfications are necessary in order to meet the aims of the sorority, some of which are: to promote com- radeship among the students, and to be, in a true sense, an inspiration to the sorority in their work and social life. The many activities in which the Devils participate make them feel to some extent that their aims are not altogether realized. Here's luck for '23! And fun and pep+0h, me! Farewell to thee-staunch hearts, To sisters tried and true, Our treasured hopes Our love sincere We proudly leave with you. - Member of '22. 'VIRGINIA DOERING. s I wonder how many of us know Virginia Doering of Junior I? I am sure not one of us is familiar with the work which she has so gener- ously contributed to every cause this year. Perhaps some of us have won- dered who "V. D." was, when -it was very inconspicuously signed at the bottom of an interesting and striking poster, or a humorous cartoon. Her work, which shows real talent, has helped to make the Oriole the interest- ing paper which it has become. Virginia has been especially busy in the last two weeks making the attractive posters of the curtains which are exhibited in the ma'in corridor of the Administration Building. If our curtains are as pretty as the posters picture them we will feel that our money is Well spent. Unlike most geniuses, Virginia has many other interests. She is, in a small way, a poet, as ardent tennis player, an enthusiastic member of the Glee Club, and, best of all, a good friend.

It was in the fall of 1920. Dr. West, started it by launching his increased enrollment campaign. The old juniors and academics who were now seniors and juniors tried bravely to do the honors, but the sight of so many strange faces proved almost too much for them and they began to wish that Dr. West would come back and help them out of their diffi- culty. However, after the first morning, when we met our new principal, Miss Tall, things began to right themselves. We settled down to work with a will, to become acquainted with faculty, subjects, and our fellow students. We organized as the Class of 1922 with one hundred and twenty members. As a result of that first meeting, we found ourselves with a. governing body composed of Gladys Russ, Presidentg Bessie Robinson, vice-president, Erna Hermann, secretaryg Francis Garber, treasurer, 1nd Bettey Bowman, banner bearer. Miss Cook was elected our honorary member. . Soon we had a class motto and colorsg then we set about in earnest to find a suitable banner and song. The Brown and the Gold was set to the music of The Little Gray Home in the West. Joy reigned supreme in our ranks the morning we marched into assembly singing this song. At our head walked our standard-bearer, holding aloft the new banner- Ah ,but we were proud of ourselves! R In late October there came a supper hike. The faculty were our guests, and seemed to, enjoy the lark as much as we did. But who could resist Weenies and cocoa cooked over an open fire! Shortly after came a dance-being dignified juniors, this was a formal adair. The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays passed away, and before we knew it, we were well launched in the second term of work. It wasn't all work, though, for there was Miss Tal1's reception. Principlesoof Edu- cation and psychology were forgotten for the time because "On with the dance! Let joy be unconfinedf' was the slogan of the hour. In the spring, our attention gamely turned to thoughts of a gar- den. Under Miss Dowell's supervision we laid off garden plots behind the dormitory. We hoed, raked and cleared away stones and then, with high hope, we planted the seed. It was great fun, but we felt that even green peas, radishes and strawberries were not too great a reward for our toil. Dn May day, which is junior day at M. S. N. S., we invited the school to our celebration on the North C'ampus. The May pole dance and crowning of the May Queen fSenior Presidentj were the principal fea- tures of the occasion, after which refreshments were served. One of the last "grand occasions" of the year was the Tolchester excursion. Sailing down the Chesapeake proved a. delightful experience. The "voyage" back, in the gathering dusk, was even more enjoyable, and when our good ship "Louise," reached her dock we found ourselves wish- ing the day had just begun. , 1921-September brought us back to school. Bessie Robinson was now our president, Gladys having deserted our ranks to marry.q Evelyn Peacock became our vice-president. Aside from these changes, the Class of '22, remained intact. We were seniors, but with only one class below us, We found that it required sustained effort to appear even slightly dignified. "We eat in cafeteria style and there are boys here-more than a 23' o dozen!" were the first bits of news to go to the folks back home. Even thc-se strange occurences soon became commonplace enough to take as matters of course. ' With one of our sections practice teaching, we found it difficult to maintain the old feeling of brotherhood which had existed among us, at first, but we soon realized that, after all, nothing could dis-sever our love for the Brown and Gold. I There was the reception to the faculty on Miss Tall's lawn, with the cold North wind trying its best to spoil ourlfun. Then came the Hal- lowe'en party for the Juniors-a masquerade dance-informal and jolly to the nth degree. We thought the juniors indispensable after this. The first formal dance of thevyear came just before Thanksgiving, and was voted a great success. - During December our Class Play-Why the Chimes Rang, was given to an audience as large as any which had ever graced our auditor- ium. One of the best things about this play was the fact that the whole class helped to make it a success. January was notable for the blizaard, which, despite its severity, could not keep Mr. Broome away from his Rural Sociology Class. Febru- ary brought the valentine party, which Miss Tall gave in honor of the seniors. This was indeed a grand and glorious occasion. , ' Bang!-This is the quarantine which fell heavily upon us on the last of February. The ten days' vacation was gratefully and hilariously accepted. Needless to say we returned to school with renewed zest for study. But the quarantine continued. Just when our hopes were highest, another case of the fever would come to blast theml The Easter holiday was a problem of interesting discussion and vital importance, but we iinally got it by the simple process of swapping Saturdays for school days. In May we had what might have been called a senior re-union. A hike, not toovlong, followed by a supper, a la camp, was the order of the day. As we swung out of the lane at Roger's Forge, just about dusk, we gave a last lingering look toward the clump of vhods from which we had come. The spot is one dear to every senior's heart. The last days are filled with work and excitement. The air is hung with mystery-what kind of entertainment are the juniors going to give us? Class day will be but an introduction to the end, Commencement! And now our history is drawing to a close. As we bid farewell to M. S. N. S. we hear again the sweet refrain of our song and the words "we will never forget" ring in our ears. We go forth, Alma Mater, with your praises on our lips! THE MAROON AND GRAY. Three cheers for old Normal The school of our pride '23 and her members Will walk by your side To our colors we'll sing In our work and our play, For we love those dear colors, s The Maroon and the Gray. . g. CHORUS: "By our deeds, you shall know us," + Our motto we'll sing, Twenty three's praises Through Normal will ring. With a cheer each day For Maroon and Gray, Long live '23. 24 I Nj O O ........i.......- When school days are over For dear '23, We will give all our praises Oh, Normal to thee, For we love our .old school And the classmates so dear, For Maroon and the Gray '23 gives a cheer. Words by E. Jones and K. Taylor-Music by Brice Maxwell. JUST AJIONG OURSELVES. Mr. Broome was talking to one of the Montgomery County girls concerning their schools for next year. "Oh, Mr. Broome," she exclaimed. "It is going to he so hard for me! You see, I've always used so much slang, and now 'when' I teach I won't dare use any more." "Slang!" ejaculated the Superintendent. "Well, believe me, you'll have to cut that out!" WHY? Junior-"Why does Missouri stand at the head in raising mules?" Senior-"0h! Because that's the only safe place to stand I guess!" . Mary-"I heard the romantic young man Alice was interested in departed from his ladyvs presence, inspired like a true knight!" , Louise-"How was that?" Mary-"Well-her father was booted and he was spurred!" . In a lesson' on hygiene, Miss Dowell, speaking of milk, asked: "Where is the best place in which to keep milk perfectly nice and fresh, during, say, a hot summer day?" Eleanorpromptly answered: "In the cow of course." .-. .-. 4 - an "A train leaves New York," said Miss S., "traveling forty miles an hour.

Before an organization can be a success, each member should be thoroughly in sympathy with the or- ganization and live up to its stand- ards. Boost it every day. Girls and boys-here is your op- portunity for school spirit and hearty co-operation. Do not miss it. Student Government at Normal is young, but that is all the more rea- son why we should give it our sup- port and help to mold its growth in a wholesome, whole-hearted way. It is an organization headed and con- ducted by the students and advised by members of the faculty. Student Government has for its purpose, self-government on the part of each student, based on the Honor System. It also aims to make our school and dormitory community a better place in which to live. Through this organization we try to make ouii school and its members the very best to be found by maintaining high standards of living. This year we hope to make Nor- mal a better and happier place to live through a higher and better spirit of co-operation and loyalty on the part of each student. "Honesty and Loyalty" is our motto.

I am here to talk directly to the fellows, The girls may listen if they wish. . Fellowg my duty and privilege to-A day. is to welcome you into our part? of the athletics. Considering thel handicap under which we had to play last year our efforts were successful. Of course, if you consider winning as success, our soccer season last year was not a success, for we won very few of the games which wel played. But what I consider thei success of last year's season, was thei sportsmanship and school spirit which we developed. On every field where we went to play we were al- ways greeted as the best of sports, both by players and spectators. And then you must remember that we had but thirteen fellows from which to pick a team and of this number! only three knew anything of the game. So you can easily see what a hard fight we had. Our basket-ball season was a de- cided success from every angle. Out of a schedule of eighteen games, we lost but five. In this sport we had to again contend with the difficulty of developing players. We had but two men who knew anything of the game but under the exceptional coaching of Mr. Touchton, we developed a, very fast team. , Baseball was not much. As you all know, it takes more skill to play this than it does the other sports, and as we had the same difficulty of developing players and not much time in which to do it, we did not succeed very well. But we organized a team and although it wasn't of the highest calibre, it showed the spirit which was in us and which, after all, is the highest thing in sports. Now fellows, when the call is is- sued for candidates, let's all come out 100172 and show our new coach we are in earnest, and mean to back him up every inch of the way, and l 1 as we have the nucleus of last year's I team back, I think we can combine the new and old in such a. way that the larger schools and colleges will greeting from the Y. W. C. A. It is nice to think that we are nearly tive hundred strong. I have great faith in the strength of numbers for our work this year. The Y. W. C. A. is a part of our school. We 'want it to mean much to you and know that you and your! good-will will mean very much to us. Almost all of you have met at least a few of our "Ask Me" girls. We have tried to give you compe- tent service and we will be glad to continue to serve you as long as you need our help. One of the really big purposes of the Y. W. C. A. is to 'make our school life richer and fuller. With this purpose in view, many social activities have been planned for the school year. The first event will be a Y. W. Reception, to be held on the North Campus, Wednesday evening, September 20th, between 3.30 and 5.30 o'clock. We cordially invite everyone to be present. Each per- ,son-through his own County repre-2 'sentative-is asked to take part. Ask ,the old girls and boys if they did not enjo ythe reception we had last year. Last year we opened a Supply still very young-but 5Room. It is iwe think it worth the trouble to look up when you are investing in school supplies. Our regular Y. W. Services are held every Sunday evening. Special features are being arranged for each meeting. Wednescay evening of each week is set aside for our Bible Class. We do want to make these bible classes worth while. Please do think that the bible class will be full to accommodate you all--we planning for several, if they needed.

THE ORIOLE 5 RURAL PRACTICE ' Senior I and II are practice teaching, about twenty-eight of them, being in rural schools. There they, work under the supervision of their-I respective critic teachers. We are very glad that there has been only one change in this corps of training teachers since last year. Miss Olive. Moore is taking the place of Miss Nellie Gray, who has left Lutherville to become Assistant Supervisor of grammar grades in Baltimore County. The training teachers at the differ-1 ent schools are: Fullerton-Firstl Grade, Miss Grogan, Fifth Grade,7 Mrs. Hopkinsg Sixth Grade, Miss Moffatglautherville - Upper Grades, Miss Olive Mooreg Primary Grades, Miss Conavang Ridge-All Grades, Miss Hipsleyg Timonium - Upper Grades, Miss Logan. - Just imagine that for one day you are one of the girls going out to her school to teach. It is 7.40 A. M. The Normal School truck swoops down the hill to the door and you, With the other teachers, are borne away for a brisk run in the early, morning air. Your head is full of plans for that standard test which you are going to give in arithmetic- or is it that Industrial Arts project?l -but you see the beautiful country through which you are passing. Your observing mind notes some data Which, you can utilize to advantage- in that Nature Study lesson. But here's the school and your work begins.. You see rural pro- blems solved by a skilled hand. You carry out your own plans and ideas perhaps better than you expected, and then the feeling of achievement! which it gives you, more than makesi up for the work of preparation. Per- haps you are not so successful as you had hoped. Then the comments and suggestions of the critic teacher till' you with new plans and new hope and you leave full of determinationtf not to make the same mistake again. and with the comforting thoughti that "Rome wasn't built in a day." J. WHALAND, Sr. I. ' With its aims and preparations, for the coming year the Elementary, School looks forward to a year of, successful work. To make the yearl a happy as well as a fruitful one, we need the hearty co-operation of both, teachers and children. May this year be a success! EUGENIA GRAHAM, I THE. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL NEWS. Do you know what happened on September the thirteenth? On that day the Elementary School at Normal opened its doors and many children entered. One hundred and seventy- one boys and girls were enrolled the first day, a gain of twenty-one chil- dren over last year's number. The present year in the Normal Elemen- tary School promises to be a success- ful one. If the aims of the school are carried out, by the end of the year the school will be raised to a higher standard of development and education. In the school last year there were four teachers, and this year there are six. Miss Myrtle Eckard, 5-fth grade critic teacher, has taught for the past six years at Franklin High School, Reisterstown, Md. She at- tended Columbia the past summer. Miss Letitia Farrell, seventh grade critic teacher, taught at Annapolis High last winter. She studied at Hopkins last summer, and is plan- ning to continue some work there this year. Mrs. Martha Sibley, critic teacher for the iirst grade, is a grad- uate of the Georgia State College for Women. She has been a teacher in the Atlanta School, and this past summer she taught primary metnods in the Georgia State College. She also studied at Columbia this sum- mer. Miss Ruth Hillhouse, critic teacher for the second grade, is a graduate of the Georgia State Col- lege. She has a B. S. de- gree from Teachers' College, Colum- bia University, and has taught in Georgia and New York State. One large aim of the year is the acquirement of more books for gen- eral reading. To have more books, a greater sum of money is needed. More sets of readers are desired in the first and second grades. lVIore history books are needed in Grades III to VII. There is an especially keen inter- est this year in the physical devel- opment of the child. It has been planned that both boys and girls shall have definite periods each week for athletics under directors provid- ed for this work. Mr. Whiting is director in the boys' athletics. Be- sides the work in athletics, improve- ments are being added to the play- ground to insure the necessary phy- sical training needed by the children. ,The patrons of last year gave S200 for playground equipment. A new ELIZABETH N ER piece of apparatus, ttravelling ringsl A D Sigur I Ihas been added this fall, and will . ' be paid for out of the funds given by the parents.

Immovable desks are proving a hindrance to teachers as well as pupils. Tables and chairs are bet- ter adapted to the needs of the chil- dren and so they are taking the place of desks ill the primary grades of the Elementary School. This year the use of the Elementary Assembly has been given to the drst grade. In the rooms where there are tables and chairs, it will be necessary to have book cases or lockers. An interest- ing project is being worked up in the second grade by Miss Hillhouse. The children are going to make lockers of discarded orange boxes. This will include work in Industrial Arts as well as Fine Arts, which will involve painting of the lockers. It is necessary that student teach- ers see more teaching by their critic teachers. This year it has been planned that the critic teacher teach at least once a week for the student teacher, carrying out the student teacher's lesson plan. One of the greatly enjoyed activi- ties of the Elementary School is the planning and developing of projects. In the opper grades, the sixth grade is working on a scheme to equip a. room which is not adapted to them. They are to furnish their room, building lockers and book cases for it. The seventh grade has planned to run a monthly newspaper in con- nection with their English work. The Elementary School :plans to contribute each month to this paper, some of their work, but as the time has been so short, only two articles. are available. THE ENGLISH ASSEMBLY.. Mr. Walther gave us a "rush or- der" for an assembly on September 27, but of course, we wanted to do our part even though we were the first members of the Junior Class to "appear in public on the stage." As we are just beginning the study of written composition, and have been spending our time on problems of planning long themes, we had no papers complete. So we borrowed three essays written by last year's Juniors, and read them. They were Miss Katherine Perdue's on "Bobbed Hairg" Miss Sara Payne's on "The Friday Exodus," and Miss Anna Mur- ray's on "Ho1:nesickness." All of them were such clever papers that we hope they furnished inspiration to all Juniors to go to work in earn- est upon the big problem of writing interesting papers, not only for class, but for The Oriole. WHAT DID HE MEAN? Junior: I think I shall take my beauty sleep now. He: Take a good, long, sleep, dear. 6 4 THE ORIOLE THE STEBBINS - ANDERSON COAL 85 LUMBER CO., Dealers in Coal. Lumber.

After Miss Tall planned the work for the unit courses for one hundred and twenty- five students, she sailed for a six weeks' trip in England. Loving the water,and knowing how restful it is, she chose a slow steam- er, "President Adams," of United States lines, from New York, to take her on a trip of eleven days across the,Atlantic. Imagine now, in England, our wide awake principal spending a vacation -taking in as a pleasure, the coun- try itself, examining their schools and listening to their educators. She landed at London and spent one week there. Especially did she enjoy acquainting her two compan- says an American can understand 'herself better if she once sees from whence her customs came. She stayed in Oxford four days. It so happened at this time that members of a liberal party were holding a summer session where poli- ticians learned how to educate them- selves -in politics. Why shouldn't this prove interesting to Miss Tall? She attended meetings at which Professor Muir, of Manchester Col- lege, and Viscount Gray were speak- ers. The women of Oxford Univer- sity told about fads. Lady Astor at- tended these meetings. The authon of "Mirrors of Downing Street" calls her the grandmother of iiappers. She seemed to carry out this character- istic well. 4 Visits were made to Windsor Cas- tle, ,Stratford and Kenworth. IQ, Windsor Castle hangs the portrait of Henrietta Maria, for whom Maryland was named. Miss MacKubbin, Mary- land's artist, was entertained here while copying that portrait, which now hangs in the Governor's house at Annapolis. 5 In Bingley there is a training col- lege. which Miss Tall attended. It is situated in Yorkshire, by the side of Ikley Moor, with charming hills at the back and a valley in front The Seniors will remember Mr. Hollam, the Director of Education of this school, from his speech in Assembly last year. - Into farther Yorkshire where the Moors were more restful, Miss Tall ,strayed to walk around through the hills. I Then back to London she went for a fascinating three days' visit. Now she surely must have thought of Van Dyke's "I know that Europe's ,wonderful, Yet Something Seems to Lack," for she sailed on the slow ship "Saxonia" of the Cunard line for home. On board the Saxonia were one hundred and fifty students, taking the International Student Tours. ghere were twelve Americans who ook part in the International Olym- pic games at Paris. Two Normal School graduates brought home hon- ors-Mlss Sabie, of Newark, N. J., Normal School ,and Miss Godbald, of South Carolina Normal. The trip back home lasted twelve days, with glorious sunshine, smooth sea and magic moonlight most of the way. And so there came back some- one full of happy optimism for the coming year's work-and that "some- one" is our principal, Miss Tall. H. WRIGHT. LEARNING OUR SLANG.

This morning, on behalf of the ,Class of '23, I want to welcolne every member of our 116W Junior Class to the Normal School. It is not sur- prising to see a large class of Juniors, for we fully expected an increased ellrollmellt, but it is quite pleasing to see so many of you alld it will be even more pleasing if your class at- tains the success WlllCll its numbers should guarantee. The success of your class depends in a large measure, on whether or not the members of it work together as a unit. In order for this to be possible, class organization is abso- lutely necessary. In high school classes are generally organized under a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. Here, the classes are so large that the work is almost too difficult for four people to handle, so besides these four oliicers, we have a chairman to represent each section of both the Junior and Senior classes. We Seniors are anxious to see you Juniors organized soon. Of course, it is only natural that now you feel as though you do not know the members of your class well enough to know whom to nominate or for Whom to vote, but every one of you should learn to know as many of his classmates as he possibly can within the next few Weeks, so -that when your election does take place, you will each have some idea as to which nominee you think is best fitted for each oflice. I am sure that I speak for every one of the Seniors when I say that we want you to feel free to call on us for help at any time. We are all anxious to see your class become one of the most successful ones that ever entered this school, and since you will have the opportunity to profit by our experiences of last year and this, we, of the Class of '23 should be able to say at the end of this year, that we leave the work of the Senior Class in better hands than our own, when we leave it in the hands of the Class of -'24.

Our Association is still an infant compared with the other organiza- tions of the school, but with lihe hearty co-operation of each one of you, I am sure it will grow so that. soon we will be able to take steps by ourselves instead of leaning on a guiding hand as much as we did last year. If you try for a team and don't make it, please don't let that failure dampen your spirit, but come out and root for us at any game. I am sure that with spirit and plenty of support we will go forward, not inerely with steps, but with leaps and bounds. ELSIE HARRINGTON,' Pres. STUDENT GOVERNMENT OFFICERS. President-Helen Cox.

S THE ORIOLE U I LIBRARY GREETINGS. One short year ago, when we, the Class of '23, entered Normal walls for thc first time. we found so much of novelty to confuse and trouble us that at times many of our number were tempted to give up the work they had chosen and go home. The library, a cold, forbidding place ol' tables. chairs. shelves, and books, was not the least among the barriers that seemed to spell our untimely doom. We early sensed that this room was to be one in which we found the tools with which we were to Work, but where and what to look for we knew not. Had We but known, our fears were more than foolish! , Day by day we became more fa-. miliar with the library until at last we grew to love it and to feel as if E certain places there and certaina books were ours, almost as if theyl were a bit of home. 1 l To the Class of '24 the Seniors. extend a welcome to the library' with the sincere hope that it may' soon mean as much to you as it doest to us. The librarians. Miss Holt and Miss Osborn, and our class, are here to be of service to you. We, wish to serve you not only in the matter of finding reference books,l but also by setting an example of, library conduct and of close observ-' l I ance 'of rules that will be wot-thi' following. l As for rules, there are really only, a few -of them, but they have beeng tried and proved. The closer we ob-' serve them, the better the library, serves us, Perhaps there are still. other rules or suggestions that would make our library more efficient and! more attractive. If so, we shall be, more than glad to have them. C. E. R. M. S. N. S. BANK. Banki ng-Hours: Monday-1-3.15 P. M. Wednesday-1-2.44 P. M. Friday-1-3.15 P. M. Such is the notice seen on the bul- letin board at the main entrance of the Administration Building at M. S. N. S. About one year ago the faculty and students of the Maryland State Normal School decided that it would be a very wise and business-like ar- rangement to establish a banking system in this school. After con- ferring with the Baltimore County Bank in Towson, if was agreed that we should have a branch of this bank in the Normal School. This branch was established and proved to be a great success. This bank generally known as "The Students Bank," is wholly for the benefit of the students. They, after paying a fee of ten cents for the necessary banking supplies, such as a check book and bank book, place their finances in the hands of the banker so that they need not worry about' loss of money. Then too, another important feature of our bank is thel cashing of checks that the pupils re-X ceive from home or out of town. Our bank was started by Miss Mary H Scarborough, the teacher in mathematics, but since she is unable' to be with us this year, her succes-' sor, Miss Orcutt, will direct the bank. It is Miss Orcutt's desire to have thei students assume the responsibliliity of our banking system. This Will be very beneficial to them because of the valuable experience that it will afford. Boys and girls of our Maryland State Normal School, if you have any money that you wish to have safe- guarded, you had better bring it to the school bank, where we can guar- antee its absolute safety. CHARLOTTE M. GREEN, Senior III. NORMAL LITERARY SOCIETY DOINGS. Marion Ogle. The president of the Petalozzi So-y ciety has told you briefiy about the' history of the two societies, and something about the two most in- teresting events that take place dur- ing the school year. The Pestalozzi and Normal Socie-Q ties are each divided into four, groups, the public speaking group, the authorship group, the dramatic4 group, and the story-telling group. The public speaking group is a very beneficial group to belong to, because in this group the members are given the chance, at least once a year, to participate in a debate. The author- ship group affords the opportunity for students to learn to write edi- torials and other literary productions correctly. This group takes charge of the advertising and ticket selling for all entertainments. In the dra- matic group some dramatic training is given and several one-act plays are presented. The members ot the story-telling group receive instruc- tions in correct methods of story-fell- ing to groups of small children. ' I know that the loyal members of the Normal Society, who are pres- ent, will join me in welcoming all new students, anfl will give those who have the good fortune to be-I come members of our society. a hearty welcome at our next meeting. Now, just to show you what a fine society spirit we have, we will sing our Normal song. E ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES. 1 . "Are we all here?" 'Let's go!" "Al1! there's the whistle now!" Have you ever been at Normal when such exciting times were at hand? I know you have not done so this year, for we have fairly be- .gun our group work, but just you ,come around next month when soc- tcer begins-soccer for girls as well as boys. l Last year we met Towson High on the field twice while Sparrows Point favored us with one call and an in- vitation to meet them at Locust Point. Although no schedule has been arranged for this year, we are 'hoping to meet those and other teams. Watch for the games and come join in, "Three cheers for old Normal" and "Nine Rahs for Team" for co-operation is the watch-ward which leads us to success. R. ALLEN. MY VISIT T0 A CANNERY. While I was at Braddock Heights this summer on my vacation, I went ,to a little town just outside the re- sort. . After dinner we went to a corn cannery. First we saw the husks being taken from the ears. Then we saw the grains being cut from the cob. The corn was next cooked in a syrup in'large kettles. I After this we went into a room 'where thousands of cans were stored. !Here we saw cans come down a run- way and pass into another room. In this room one machine. took the cans 1 and filled them, and another machine put on the tops. Next they were ,packed and sent away. DONALD F. PROCTOR, Fifth Grade. J I THEY DID IT AGAIN! I .. I The Washington County students were awarded the first prize for the best stunt given at the Y. W. C. A. vReception,-held on the North Campus lon September the twentieth. Much 'credit is due the boys and girlsxof lWashington County, as it took orig- inality and tact to come out of the contest victorious, because of the large number of other Counties com- peting in the contest. This is the second time Washington County has won the prize. Last year was the first time. This year was the sec- ond-now, Washington County stu- dents, make next year the third time. 5 The stunt was "A Dummy Trial." in which about thirty-five students participated. i BETTY WORTHINGTON, '23.

"Oh! girls, have you heard about the Craft Club? I just heard two Seniors talking about it, and from what they said, I am simply wild to become a member." This bit of conversation was over- heard by a member of the Club, who, like all other members, was always ready to listen when any one took the name of our Club in vain. Certainly every girl at Normal has met some member of the Craft Club, because you will ind us flitting around everywhere, like the Oriole- trying to make people interested in us. The objects of our club are: first, to get experience and obtain knowl- I edge of various crafts 5 second, to as- sist other organizations of the Mary- land State Normal School and the school as a whole, in carrying out their programs, third, to keep In touch with larger, similar, outside organizations as the American Fed- eration of Artsg Metropolitan, Bos- ton and Chicago Museumsg Walters Art Gallery and others, through join- ing or visiting these various Nation- al Organizationsg and fourth, to ar- range for exhibits at M. S. N. S. Doesn't everyone remember what a wonderful exhibition we held year? Why, of course you do this year it is going to be even ter. Besides the exhibition, we planning to give a play, for which last and bet- are s 'we will make our own scenery and Icostumes. Now, you must admit that lsounds fine! Just imagine being able to say, "I painted those rocks," -or "I designed that Greek costume." Why there is no better feeling than to stand back and be able to say something like that! But that isn't all We shall do, no indeed, we shall have an opportunity to make some special things for ourselves that we can keep to show our friends, and 'remember the dear old Craft Club of M. S. N. S. Did some one whisper, "What do I have to do to become a member of the Craft Club?" My, what a simple question! The only membership qualifications are that you must be connected oflicially with the Mary- land State Normal School. You must be able to attend all the meet- ings regularly, more than two ab- sences other than illness, disquali- fies a member. But that isn't hard because you become so interested that you will weep if you have to miss a meeting. Oh! meg I most forgot to tell you -one of the most important things, and one I am sure every one will agree ong it concerns a little brown .leather case that has a bad habit of growing flat every now and then- guess what, girls! We don't have to pay any dues, but we meet inciden- tal expenses through assessment of members by a majority vote. Much better, isn't it? Do we have hikes? Why, most assuredly we do! And we have the best roasted spuds and fried bacon that can be found anywhere. But. I guess I had better bring this to a close because there will soon be no room available for any one else in the Oriole's nest! f M. LILLY, '23, "l've seen Alice walk home from many an auto ride."

I have done everything I can think of to help them, but it is so disheartening to try to do something different every day.

The ,Indians lived in wigwams which they called their homes. They piled up sticks in the middle of the wigwams and then they got some dint stones and rubbed them togeth- er to make the fire. There was a hole in the top of the Wigwam so the smoke could go out, but some of the smoke stayed in the Wigwam. They cooked their food and kept themselves warm by the fire. They slept on animal skins. They hunted for the skins and their food with a bow and arrow. GEORGIE BOSLEY, Third Grade. Bobbed Hair Junior: "I suppose it would shock you if I told you, I be- lieve in free love." A Friday Night Man: "Now, that is where you and I agree. I'm tired of spending money on flowers and candy." WHAT DOES OUR PRINCIPAL THINK ABOUT US? A The opening of school on Septem- ber 13, 1922, marked the third an- niversary of the opening of M. S. N. S. for Miss Tall. It was character- ized by'a liner organization and spir- it than was shown in the other two years. Why, do you think? Through Student Government, the students had assumed more responsi- bility. The Senior Class reception committee had lifted work from the shoulders of the office force and the registrar's ofiice. The students- and parents met the Y. W. C. A. "Ask Me" girls, whose friendly greeting and willingness to show them around the buildings and town, proved very satisfying to strangers. There were fewer homesick girls than in previous years. The students seemed to work out a method of cheerfulness for the girls. After one week, Miss Greenlaw took the home- sick girls for a hike to Stevenson's woods., -A jolly time with Miss Greenlaw is a sure cure for home- sickness. Probably, to Miss Tall, one of the most gratifying phases of this year's work is the enrollment, In 1920 two hundred and thirty-five students at- tended Normalg in 1921, three hun- dred and eighty, and in 1922, tive hundred and four. But the large number is not so gratifying as the character and apparent ability of the Juniors. This indicates that the high school principals and teachers, and the County Superintendents are believing fundamentally in education as one of the most important pro- fessions. Thirty-four of the enroll- ment are boys. We hope that some time in the future we will have thir- ty per cent. of the enrollment, men students. One noticeable factor this year is that the Seniors are pleased with the Juniors. This tells a tale in itself. The school is as the school spirit it represents. May the Class of 1923 pass on to the Juniors this year an enlarged loyalty even finer than that the Class of 1922 passed on to the Class of 1923. HAZEL WRIGHT. . WE WONDER. 1-If Seniors are really wise. 2-Why Owen Thomas and James Kirby were discussing Hope Chests? 3--Why Juniors talk so much? 5-Why we don't have a piano in the recreation room? 6-When the Seniors are enter- taining the Juniors? 7-Why Senior V is going to give a movie October 25 and November 8. THE ORIOLE fs O DOCTOR GEORGE DRAYTON STRAYERHS SPEECH TO THE FACULTY AND STU- DENTS OF M. S. N. S. . My friends and members of the Maryland State Normal School, I think I was terribly frightened in ap- pearing before this group." Per- haps, noting an expression of amused skepticism flit through the audience, he added, "That is so." Q Dr. Strayer sought in forceful and earnest appeals to make us conscious of the great possibilities, as well as responsibilities lying ahead of us, and felt there could have been a bet- ter understanding between speaker and audience if, as he said , "in- stead of standing up here on this platform we could have the kinder- garten situation where I could talk directly to each and every one of you and you could come back at me with your questions." Then I would feel there was no danger in having in- fluenced or affected you in a manner other than I want to. What I say about education I feel strongly, so strongly, that I want it to affect you, the teacher. "The biggest thing there is in ed- ucation, after all the curriculum, is just the manner in which you in- struct as a teacher. From among you boys, possibly some of you girls, will be developed future superintend- ents of schools and leaders in the educational field in your community, and with some, back in your head is the thought that you will teach a while and then study law, or teach and then become a doctor. I stand before you today in the solemn con- viction that for one who would suc- ceed and make his life worth while there is no other profession in which all of us can have so big a chance as in this noble profession in which you are interested." "Approximately one of every five persons living in the United States is, or ought to be in school, one out of every five in the total population is either in schol or ought to be in school." "From a recent investigation that was made, seeking to discover the in- come of the American people, it was. in terms of dollars, estimated that we had an income of sixty billions of dol- lars. How much can they spend on educationj One-sixtieth of it. One dollar out of every sixty dollars we actually spend on education. Think of the size of the problem, the num- ber of people, the amount of money involved!" "No other profession in the world offers so many opportunities as the teaching profession. In its true sense it is big because of the possi- bilities that lie in it-the improve- ment and development of all of the people. The great American princi- ple is the principle of giving every body a chance to make the most of himself. This is the American ideal. Abraham Lincoln expressed it by saying, 'A fair start and an equal chance in the race of life! Theodore Roosevelt, 'Give everybody a square dealg' everybody receiving educa- tion in terms of equality which means that all have a chance so that each one can do the best he is capable of doing." "How can we do it? Except as we provide education for all the peo- ple-and this is the job of our pro- fession. How can we set out to do it? We set out to do it in terms of our standing as a profession, as the realization of this ideal, We lose sight of it, we who work. We haven't realized our aim yet, but We must carry the torch high and must con- tinue to work for the realization of this ideal." Dr. Strayer said that we can never go back to the time when a few peo- ple could impose their will on the many. We were done with the days of superstition and guess Work and that we were witnessing the results of scientific endeavors, now educa- tion takes on the aspect of a science. Education sought for and gave to us control of ideals, of right habits, a certain amount of knowledge so that certain common ideals permeated the whole groupg so it is the responsi- bility of teachers to see that every- one has knowledge of certain ideals, habits and skills. "We question sometimes if the sacrifice of lives in the Wor1d's War was worth while. Let us be glad to know that men died for their ideals." We teachers have some fighting to do for our ideals, but for those who are willing to lose themselves they shall find themselves and for those who are not willing to lose them- selves they shall not find them Cidealsj. Service to all the epople is the keynote of our profession and for those who give service there is no limit to the growth of possibilities. He emphasized the need of attend- ance at Summer School, and said "we should never be satisfied with our original equipment or the quali- ty of service given, but should con- tinue to grow in service, in knowl- edge, and in usefulness. To more strongly emphasize the need of professional growth Dr. Strayer referred to Maltby Babcock's philosophy. Go Right On Working. GROW. He referred to the advancement made in the field of medicine. That as the practice in medicine had evolved from witchcraft to a science so was education being transformed from a trade to a science. Just 'as the doctor took his solemn oath, upon being admitted to practice, so should teachers take an oath that they will do their best for those they serve, their greatest reward being the joy of service. We, as teachers, must hold up to tghechildren high ideals, since we and they are making the citizenship of tomorrow. ' Be patriotic in its fullest and best 54911594 1 Then Dr. Strayer repeated the in- spiring words of America, the Beau- iiifulz "D, beautiful fbi-1 pilgriml feet, Whose stern impassioned stress, A thoroughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness.

I do not know why I have been asked to tell you about it, but I suppose the reason is because last year I was an enthusiastic member. Then, too, we had no formal organization, hence no president. Last year we gathered in an in- formal group to sing for a good time and to learn new choral music. This year, if the popular demand is great enough, a formal organization may be had. At the head of the Glee Club was Miss Shurtz. Miss Spicer was the accompanist ,and Margaret Owens was assistant accompanist. There were no dues to be paid, but each bought his own sheet music. The enrollment was seventy-ve, eleven of whom were boys ibut they didn't always comej. Sixty was the regular average attendance. Last year we planned a social evening for once a month. The Glee Club and Orchestra both took part in this. The Orchestra really seems a part of us. Although we rehearse separately, we appear in public together. There are some other big items concerning the Glee Club. The Or- chestra and Glee Club gave a con- cert at school. This year we hope to give concerts away from school as well as here. Supper hikes were considered among the best of good times with the Glee Club. Last year we all went out in the woodstand every one had a delightful time. Now anybody can join the Glee Club. There is no voice trial-if you can and like to sing-join! A week or ten days will be given for joining, so watch the bulletin board for the time. The enrollment will be limit- ed to one hundred, so you'd better be early, for the last ones may have What an interesting place the Elementary School is! Have you visited some grade while a project was being developed? If not, do so. Pay a visit real soon and I'm sure you will feel a keener interest in the work which his being carried on there. Suppose you visit the 'first grade. If you do, you will hear the children discussing the gingerbread boy, how he is made, of what materials he is made, and just how a real ginger- bread boy would act. The first grade has been reading "The Gingerbread Boy," so they are going to make a gingerbread boy, following a recipe. They will bring wheat to school, grind it, mix it with other ingredi- ents, according to mold it into shape. ished product may Who knows? In the first grade be iuterestd in the ject, which is called Every morning the trip through this land, and by doing so become familiar with the health rules.

The' village of Oatmeal is next visited, and Hot Soup Spring. Other places of interest are the Milky Way, with its village of paper milk bottlesg Spinach Green and Baked Potato Village, which is represented by real potatoes. Play Meadow has sliding boards made of clay. The children made everything on the sand table. Did you see the Columbus play? Iln the second and the third grade rooms, the Columbus play is the greatest subject of conversation. The play was presented to the Elemen- tary School on Wednesday, October 11, and to the Normal School on Co- lumbus Day, October 12. This play was written by the third grade. They selected the characters, were respon- sible for the costumes. and worked out the stage setting. In the general assembly of the Normal School on Tuesday, October 17, Miss Hillhouse Itold how the play was worked lout of the History lessons. Besides I-History and Industrial Arts this pro- Iject involved language, which in- cluded writing of the play itself and ,invitations to the school and parents. The third grade, Miss Buckley's room, is preparing for an Indian As- sembly. In the History work, the children have been studying about ilndian family life, the Wigwam, and gthe occupations of the Indians. The ilessons will lead up to the way we live today and the improvements which have been made. Industrial IArts will be brought in the project I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I This gives a need for spelling. In music the children will learn an In- dian song, while an Indian dance will be taught, thus giving work in Physical Training. Now you have heard some things about -the lower grades of the Ele- mentary School. If the projects are to be a success the hearty co-opera- tion and interest of every child is needed. If you visit our Elemen- tary School you will see how readily each child takes part in the work. Doesn't this sound interesting? ELIZABETH ANDERSON, Sr. I PROGRESS OF THE ELEMEN- TARY MONTHLY. In composition class we started a paper. Before we could get our pa- per organized we had to give it a name,"Elementary Monthlynreceived the highest number of votes, thus giving our paper its name. We then elected the editors, who were: Alice Klingelhofer, Editor in Chief: Florence Potter, drst assistant, and Asa Bird Gardner,' second assistant. The contents of our paper were decided upon next. We are going to have stories, compositions, accounts of interest, athletics, current events, news items and jokes. Then report- ers had to be chosen. In order to tell which ones would be best as athletic reporters the whole class wrote reports on all we have done so far this year in athletics. The ones having the best reports were: Mary Ward, Kitty Frame and Mar- garet Clark. Current Event report- ers are Amabel Price, Helen Brook- hart and EdwardGrochmal. For home work every night we wrote something that would help our paper along. We wrote news items, telling what we are doing in our school. We brought an editorial clipped from the newspaper. We then studied editorials. It was voted upon in class that we have a cover for our paper, which will be made as artistic as possible. Editor of the Elementary Monthly. Alice Klingelhofer.

Seated in a corner of the library, unobserved, trying to concentrate on Monroe's Principles of Education, I became conscious of insubdued tones in earnest conversation. I thought to myself, those people are truly in- terested in their discussion. Look- irg up I saw a small group of Senior V. They were discussing the value of Miss Munn's course in Principles of Education. Briefly, the substance of their re- spective opinions was, that our work to date in Principles of Education was giving us a broader conception of the real meaning of education, that it could not be viewed solely from the standpoint of the dollar value in so far as it placed men and women in a position to make moneyg neither could education be construed to mean purely mental and physical developmentg nor should over-em- phasis be placed upon the moral de- velopment of individuals, but rather these three things, the mental, phy- sical and moral development should be carried on along principles that are logical, that have stood the test ot' application and time and which have placed man in a position to be happy only when he is contributing to the moral uplift, the progress anfl social welfare of the community in which he finds himself. In order to realize and appreciate the process of development through which educational principles have that have stood the test of time and application and are embodying them in present day practices. We call them principles ofeducation. lt was interesting to note the con- tributions made by the old Greek p"ilosophers. Aristotle and Plato, ad- vocating the need of logical reason- ing and the application of knowledge. Quintilian worked upon the princi- ple that the child is the most impor- tant consideration in the school, that the curriculum must meet the need of the child. Socrates drew a fine distinction between the value of in- teresting opinions and reasoned knowledge. getting away from vague- ness of thought and requiring a definition and reference in order to develop consistency of thought. ' The conclusions of this group I heartily endorse. Tile are building up an informa- tional background that will be of value to us in knowing what prin- ciples of education to base our teaching upon in order that the pro- duct of our public schools represent mental. physical and moral efficiency.

THE ECONOMIC VALUE OF BIRDS. My Friends: I feel entirely unlike Mark Antony in his speech at Cae- sar's funeral, inasmuch as I have a very live subject to speak upon. Legislators do not spend hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly for I I I birds for purely sentimental reasons. I will take their? viewpoint and speak from a standpoint of dollars and cents alone. Insects in the United States de- stroy 5S60,000,000 of cotton per year. Grasshoppers and insects destroy 533,000,000 worth of hay and 252,- 000,000 worth of wheat. Ten per cent. of our farm products and 2552 of our garden products are yearly fed to the insect pests. Coddling moths and other insects ruin 512,000,000 off fruit per annum. .Apple raisers spend 258,250,000 year- ly to combat this foe. Chinch bugs destroy 520,000,000 worth of wheat each season. Boll Vveevils destroy' an equal amount of qotton. In 1912 the army Worm marched over South Carolina and despite a. barrage of sprays and powders, pra- tically devastated that State. In 1900 Hessian Flies invaded Ohio and absolutely destroyed 2,500.00 acres of the finest grain in the Mid- dle West. The market price of grain land dropped 4054 as a result. Birds are the greatest check to in- sect plagues known. Four Chicka- dees, which usually feed upon plant lice, caterpillars, cankerworm, moths, etc., were found to have eaten at one meal 105 moths. Upon examination it was found that the eggs of the moths on the first hatching would develop into 20.000 moths. Night hawks, examined, have eaten over 50 different species of insects, among them grass hoppers, potato bugs, boll weevils, gnats, mosquitoes. The cuckoo and Baltimore Oriole usually eat so manv tent caterpillars that their stomachs become lined with fuzz. The fiicker is the greatest en- emy' to the ant known, thereby de- stroying large numbers of corn aphis. Hawks and owls feed princi- pally upon rodent pests. Birds also play a large part in the extermination of weeds, many of them dining almost entirely upon weed seeds. Wfith your permission I will con- clnde with a short quotation from Longfellow: The summer came, and all the birds were dead The days were like hot coalsg the very ground Was burned to ashesg in orchards fed Myriads of caterpillars, and around The cultivated nelds and garden beds Hosts of devouring insects crawled, and found No foe to check their march, till they had made The land a desert without leaf or shade. passed, it was pointed ont that thelthe protection and propagation of CHARLES RENN, G THE ORIOLE AN OBSERVATION LESSON. "Aren't they the cutest things? Don't you envy Caroline Read and Blanche Alderson? My! how I wish l were teaching first grade!" These exclamations, heard as the Srniors came from their first observation of a primary reading lesson, give an index to the way we feel about the teaching of reading. Mrs. Sibley's babies. all seated in a row, in their little brown chairs. looked just as happy as if they were waiting for a game of teacher and class. When their teacher asked them if they would like to read the story of "The Little Red Hen." in a new book, and see how different it was from the story' in their own book, there was a chorus of ap- proval. Mrs. Sibley first asked the chil- dren if they saw any words in this book similar to the words in the other book. Excited waving of the pairs of little hands. showed their eagerness. As the children rearl the different sentences and phrases to her. she wrote them on the board until. with her help, they had select- ed all the sentences in which the words were different. The children then read the sentences from the board--later they worked on the nhrases and tinallv on single words. Mrs. Sibley gave the children cards, asking them to tell her the word on the card. and then find the same word on the board. The children's names were all written on the board and as they read the word on the flash card. they went to the hoard and drew a picture. It was easv after the lesson was over to see that all the theory we had been studying about socialized recitations. co-operation, association. initiative, judging, motivation. and all the rest. was involved in one lit- tle reading lesson. More than that, we saw that even beginners could get joy from their reading, for Calvin replied, when Mrs. Sibley asked him which story he liked best, "The one in the first book, because I can read it better."

I I l YOU, TOO. fBy Margaret Hubbard, Sr. IIIQJ The training of the physical pow- ers of children is most naturally ac- compjlished through games. Our games and exercises are written to develop muscular control and to quicken the sense organs. We have found in our own training of Phy- sical Education that certain instruc- tions should be observed. As teach- ers we should all know that physical exercise should be put before the child in a spirit of play. The man- ner in which we teach the game is more important than playing the game itself. We should always have a definite aim and produce one idea at a time in the mind of the child. - As early as the first grade, both schoolroom and playground games are played, such as the "Muffin Man" and "Luby Loo." These games are continued in each grade by more complex playing. These games and dances have been studied from the primary grades through the eighth grade by the six sections of Seniors. Our first term's work in Physical Education for this year has been made up chiefly of team work and group organization. Such games as "Captain Ball," ltLive Tag," "Battle Ball" and "Forcing The City Gates," together with other games of this nature have been thoroughly en- joyed by Seniors III, IV. V and VI. Seniors .I and II are now having the pleasure and experience of teaching Physical Education in the rural and in the Maryland State Elementary School. It should be remembered that Phy- sical Education is not all play, but that it develops team work ,group organization, attention, manners, morals, self-control, patience and many other desirable qualities. "What more can we ask of any sub- ject in education than that which develops in the individual qualities which makes the child a social rath- er than an anti-social being yn YOU CAN TELL. You can always tell a Senior When you meet her on the groundg You can always tell a Senior By the way she struts around. You can always tell a. Junior. If, with her you get in touchg You can always tell a Junior, But you cannot tell her much. --Adapted. THE MAID'S PRAYER.

Had you been standing at the cor- iier of York road and the State Nor- mal School driveway on the night of Thursday, October 17th, you would have seen and heard about sixty-tive members of the Glee and Craft Clubs. We were wildly enthusiastic, but, of course, well behaved, for we were starting for Baltimore to hear Leo Ornstein, pianist, and Marie Sundel- ins, a soprano of the Metropolitan Opera Company, in a. concert pro- gram. We arrived at the Lyric Theatre about half past seven, found the doors closed and waited, fsome with a feeling of despair, for it had been hinted that we might have to stand through the entire performancel. Finally, as if by magic, an important looking man appeared and led us to the stage entrance, where he parked ns behind the scenes. He evidently told the head usher what a fine and enthusiastic group we were, for soon 'that dapper little man appeared and led us into the empty and half-light- ed theatre. YVe were given places along the rear rail of the Orchestra Circle before the doors were opened to the general public. After the sec- ond number, all members of our party had been given seats, not claimed by ticket holders, and we settled down for an evening of en- joyment. We were glad to hear Mr. Orn- stein play Chopin, Schubert and De- bussey' numbers, personally. His own composition, Ulmpersonations of Chinatown," was extremely charac- teristic. Marie Sundelins' numbers were beautifully done and seemed to be chosen for every one to appre- -ciate. An interesting feature of the pro- gram was the use of the ampico, an electrically controlled piano-player, which reproduces to perfection, the playing of an artist. In Liszt's "Liebestraum," Mr. Ornstein played part of the selection and the ampico reproduced his playing of the same number on a previous occasion. In other words, Mr. Ornstein sat listen- ing to himself play. Mme, Sundelins' songs were accompanied in part by the ampico, And how much did it cost us? The concert was free and for our courte- ous reception we are grateful to Mr. W. Paul Hamilton, of the Knabe Studios, with whom arrangements were made for our party. L. M. O., Sr. V.

Once upon a time there was an average senior who graduated from Normal. Now she was only an aver- age girl, having only average intel- ligence. However she was possessed of a desire that was much stronger that the average, the desire to put the many theories :that had been crammed into her cortex into prac- tice. It seems that some how hen experiences in teaching were not just what she had expected and that she "came in" for a great enlight- ening. Her ilrst day of school was largely responsible for this and as I saw her when the memory of it was still quite fresh, I received a rather interesting account. Her testimony ran something like this: I accepted a position in a rural school some where in that part of the world very properly dubbed "The Styx." I knew absolutely nothing of the school when I accepted the place, but I was soon informed that I was "up against it." It seemed that the children were very few in numbers, but what they lacked quantity was more than made up quality. Of course, I took all this with a liberal amount of salt, for I had great faith in solving pro- blems through motivation, projects, parent-teacher co-operation, etc. Finally, the eventful day arrived. Following the teachings of the best books on the subject, I arrived at the school house very early and was fully prepared to welcome every child. I was somewhat surprised 'to find a dozen children waiting to give me the "once over." Then it was that I began to wonder if my powder was on straight, whether or ,not my ears were showing and "such ilike." After an hour of severe crit- licism from forty pairs of eyes. ffor fthe few had grown to be fortyj, the !day really began. - During opening exercises every- thing went rather smoothly and my heart began to beat normally once more. Then, remembering the pro- cedure of practice teaching, I sailed into music period and on asking what they wished to sing, I was fioored by forty voices singing out forty different wishes. Of course, I expected to hear Swing Song or The Kite, and to say that I was surprised by what I did hear is putting it mildly. I couldn't have been more surprised if they had asked for Sole Mio or The Messiah, for every song asked for was the jazziest kind of jazz. Here are a few of the choic- est-Highbrow Blues, Hot Lips, and Nobody Lied. This is the time that Miss Shurtz came to the rescue with "Gaily Brays the Donkey." This round seemed to suit their tastes and, at the same time, to break the ice. So much for the music period. Following music came the lessons in in of of the day, each in its turn. This wasn't so bad, for, thanks to the foresight of the teachers at Normal, I had a number of problems ready. This part of the day went on its way repoicing, so to speak. It was the minor details that made me long for the hour of dismissalg Hundreds of questions and complaints of this nature came to me-"Miss Jones, mama doesn't want me to set with Mary, she swipes pencils." "Miss Jones, my pencil ain't got no point." "Miss Jones, kin I git a drink of water," and so on ad iinitum. In vain I explained to them that I had not enteredi that blessed state got twoness. I could get no results, "Mis" Jones had come to stay. I am certainly glad that it is possible to change my name for if I had to be dubbed "Mis" Jones all the rest of my days, I should be a fit subject for the scrap basket before many years. Finally the day dragged to its close and I was free., It was over, but its influence was far-reach- ing, for in the one day I had become acquainted with many things that l'd never read of in School Manage- ment or Rural Sociology. I was a real "school marm' 'at last. Some weeks later I happened to meet this average girl again. This time she was singing La different song. Naturally I asked the reason and pulling a small yellow paper from her note book, she answered, "Yes, everything is going beautiful- ly. I've found out that those forty little heathens are -just like other children when you remove the cover- ing and best of all, here is my pan- acea. My alma mater sent. me this, and, of course, I've subscribed for the year. It's great to look forward to having a real live Oriole bring you the news of your co-workers every month." HIP, HIP, HOORAY! FOR THE SENIOR PLAY. The Senior play will be presented in the Auditorium of the School at eight o'clock on December the iif- teenth. The decision of the Dra- matics Committee was in tavor ot a rollicking comedy. The play which meets this demand and at the same time maintains the dignity of liter- ary excellence is the quaint and hu- morous comedy of Dr. Oliver Gold- smith--"She Stoops to Conquer." This play, though old, tried and true, still bubbles with the eternal mirth of youth.

In introducing her topic Read a Newspaper," Mrs asked: "What is news? Will get up and tell me the meaning?" Lack of response meant that we wanted her opinion.

HOW' THE PAPER GOT ITS NAME The Seventh Grade of the Elemen- tary School started a paper. One of the first things we had to do to get our paper organized was to name it. In composition class these names were suggested: Seventh Grade Monthly, Elementary Gazette, Ele- mentary, and Oriole Junior. After a few minutes discussion about the different names, Elementary Ga- zette was marked out because it sounded too much like a police pa- per. The Seventh Grade Monthly was marked out because it is not only Seventh grade news, but school news. The two left were Oriole Junior and Elementary Monthly. The two were voted upon. Elemen- tary Monthly received the highest number of votes. Our newspaper will therefore be known as The Ele- mentary Monthly. GOOD LUOK T0 THE ELEMEN- TARY MONTHLY! With the ending of the month of October comes a newspaper from our own Seventh Grade to keep in print the happenings of our school. We feel that such a paper is a. pro- gressive step and that the group of children carrying this through is rendering a service to the school. The month of October has been a busy one. Work on the house, plan- i F t other grade needs. The Fifth Grade is planning a Thanksgiving assem- bly for the school. We are all look- ing forward to Armistice Day be- cause Miss Tall is going to speak to the children, telling them what the dag salute should mean. We are proud of our new paper and the school is ready to help the grade which has undertaken this project. Good luck to The Elemen- tary Monthly! VIRGINIA E. STONE, Principal of Elementary School. BIOLOGY FIELD TRIP. Some Juniors of the biology sec- tions took a field trip on a beautiful afternoon in October. You cannot imagine the joy that they had, as well as, the educational value they derived. It was about three c'clock when some twenty or mom girls left the Administration building accom- panied by two of the teachers, Miss Medwedeff and Miss Cooley. The search began immediately af- ter they reached the York road by turning over every stone and log they chanced to see. Some found grass hoppers by the wayside, others found beetles and butterflies. After walking along the York road about three quarters of a mile they turned down a lane which led to a meadow. The banks along this lane were quite convenient to dig out insects whose nature is to bury under the soil. Many specimens of various names were discovered and it kept Miss Medwedeff busy trying to iden- tify them, and to show the girls which specimens were insect larvae and which worms, for it seemed quite difficult for some to remember that insects have distinct charac- istics. They came to a stream in the meadow where the party halted. Some cast their nets into the water in hopes of obtaining water bugs, others searched beside the stream for flying, crawling or buried insects. Various other animals, including-a salamander and a crawfish, were found, besides insects, and when the parting hour came each one had fling of a scpool newspaper' Phe mak'!something in the bottle they carried ing of a Gingerbread Boy in Grade with them- I, an Indian assembly in Grade III, a V W . 1 They started back feeling quite Egklgisusnglabyogg Cgggssbgnznengigljolly over their pleasant search and in Grade VI-these are a few of the every one felt that her time had been spent in a most enjoyable manner rff.Z2p:11gg?z0fef1l5Zlflv?F1:h cgaggigggggand is willing to take another field parties given by Grades HI IV and trip any time the plan is suggested.

The everyday schedule runs six periods of class room work and one period for assembly. The most important period is Assembly per- iod. 1 To this period, scheduled regular- ly at 10.45 A. M., we bring our best efforts. Sometimes we have a sum- mary of classroom work in History, English, Geography, or Math. Some- .times the Elementary School gives an assembly as an outgrowth of their work. The children present the data and the teachers explains by what process their objectives were accomplished. Another assem- bly may give a charming program of music. Whatever it is, it is vital and usable for our work in educa- tion. 1 This year we have been honored with notable speakers. Professor G. N. Strayer, of Columbia, University, spoke to us about "Objectives in Education." Mrs. John Glover Wil- son told us "How To Read Newspa- pers." Mr. Sydney L. Nyburg, law- yer and author, gave some "Inter- esting Historical Facts of Old Bal- timers." Charles J. Linthicum, an- "alumnus" of the school, and United States' Congressman, gave a discus- sion on "The Constitution of the United States." Miss Carey, of the Child Health Organization, through the Elementary School, started our "Health Drive" for this year. We have assemblies calling atten- tion to fire prevention. Definite weeks are set aside for such drives as: Fire Prevention, Better English. Better Posture, and Cancer Preven- tion. As a school, we come togetherl once a day to share the schoo'l's work and the world's work as it is made clear to us through our prom- inent guests. Mon ', , - nor's Day. Governor Albert C. Ritchie will speak at the morning' Assembly. During his stay with us he will visit the Elementary School, the dormitories and the athletic fields.

As teachers, going out to work in the elementary schools of Maryland. it is necessary that We understand something of the nature of the small child and the kind of stories that he will enjoy. -In considering the stories for the elementary school, we first con- sidered fairy stories. We dis- cussed the values of fairy stories, the kind of storles that should be chosen for early grades and then for two or three days turned the class into a story telling group and reveled in the beauties of Grimm, Pierault and Dasant. After we had devoted a day,or two to the discussion of hero tales and myths, we told some of these stories in class, trying to make be- lieve that we were mere little chil- dren listening to the wonderful ad- ventures of Pandora or Arachue.

I think the hair pin is the limit-and any girl who has had any experience with these weapons will. back me in this statement. In the first place-they have a most successful way of losing them- selves-particularly those innocent looking "invisibles," and once lost, they're lost! Having successfully secreted themselves in some un- thought of nook-they may be the- cause of a declaration of VVar--for you always declare that your room- mate has taken them--and nine times out of ten, she has! But at any rate. they manage to break up any domestic tranquility that exists. Then, those huge wire spikes that we have to wear! YVhen seated com- fortably in church, did you ever feel one going straight through your head. and you just felt that if you didn't soon get your hat off, the ushers of the church would be es- corting you to the Sheppard-Pratt? Does a man ever have to suffer this agony? Of course not,-he doesn't have to wear the "animals," I think of all the species, the bone ones are really the kindest, they're not so very easy to lose, and they are a little careful about how they stick you-but they do manage to get broken so easily, and they cost money. What do men have to spend money for, anyhow, they don't use hairpins or nets? I don't know who invented hair- pins-but whoever did surely had a wicked grudge against woman-kind. There must be a more humane way of keeping one's hair in place than by the use of those cruel wires and bone implements. After I finish Normal. I intend to devote the re- mainder of my life to the scientific study of "hairpins," and I'm sure if I am successful in inventing some less painful method of managing contrary hair, my name will be in "Who's Who In Americo." or else girls are mighty ungrateful wretches. 5 EVERY DAY APPETIZERS.

The Seniors heard it call and answered far the Juniors have not great quantity or quality bird's voice. Without your Juniors, our Oriole can- perfect songster. Don'ti it, but so added any to the poor help, dear not be a forget your duty! Why not estab- lish a name for yourselves by being a 100 per cent. friend of the Oriole in our December issue? Remember it's calling you Juniors, and you and you. Betty Worthington, Advertising Manager, '23. been keeping up wi-th the Elemen- tary School lately? If not, just read a few events which have been 1 going on there. Ou Tuesday, October 30, Miss Buck1ey's classes, the third and fourth grades. gave aHallowe'en party i nthe Elementary Assembly of the Elementary School from one to two o'clock. Invitations were 'sent to Miss Stone, the teachers, and the First and Second grades. At the beginning of the party the chil- dren were seated on the door while they sang a Hallowe'en song and llistened to a story. Then the chil- 'dren played games out doors. Soon every one was invited in to have re- freshments. We all had a lovely time at this party. Don't you wish you could have been there? I suppose you saw the health play given by the lower grades, under the direction of Miss Carey. Miss Carey came to us from a child's health. organization, and planned a play with the children, which would initiate an interest in health educa- tion. In the play the children sang songs which told of health rules to he obeyed every day. The first grade children cleverly represented little children going to bed early with windows open. The second grade children drank milk and the third grade said they ate oatmeal r-vervday. The fourth grade repre- sented school children, while the fifth grade represented the vegeta- ble men. The children had very lit- tle work on this play, in fact, only about three ten minute rehearsals. Dnesn't it seem interesting that the children gain more knowledge of the health rules from this form of play activity than reading facts from books? On Friday evening, November 3, the monthly meeting of the Te-Pa- Chi Club was held in the Elemen- tary Assembly. The meeting was called to order by the president, Mr. Sneeringer. Miss Tall gave a talk on differences in skill, attitudes, ideals and the physical characteris- tics of the child. It is the business of the school and the home to lead to a steady growth along all of these lines. For example, the salutation of the flag should become to children a ceremony in honor of some worthy tcltizen of our country. Another ,good point brought out in this talk ,was that all children should know parliamentary procedure. Children should begin in the lower grades to conduct meetings, assuming all re- ksponsibilities. Then too, the child should early begin to have civic re- sponsibility in caring for the ap- pearance of school property and keeping the grounds in good condi- tion. Courtesy and responsibility should be developed in the very young child. It a child of twelve rises when some one older than he enters the room, waits quietly for some privilege, gives his seat in a crowded place to some older per- son, then we know that this child has had training in courtesy in his younger life. The parents were given outlines of desirable habits and attitudes for good citizenship in the Elementary School, with the request that they check and return these to Miss Stone within the next few days. From these outlines a list of desirable habits and attitudes is to be made. The teachers and parents will work together with thechildren and form new plans orlimprove old ones to benent the school." I On Friday, November 10, we cele- brated Armistice Day in the Elemen- tary School. Among the important events of this celebration was the flag salutation, singing patriotic songs, and a talk by Miss Cooley. In the third grade, tMiss Hillhouse teacher,J the children are going to work out an interesting history pro- ject. If you walk in this room you will see logs sawed in a pile of uni- form lengths and other logs to be sawed. The children are going to make a log cabin. If you think t.hey're not good carpenters and in- terest is lacking, then just take a. peep in the third grade room some morning between eleven thirty and twelve o'clock. The fourth grade wrote a Viking play in history class. They present- ed the play to the Elementary School on Monday, November 13. I have told you some of the hap- pening in the Elementary School. This is a happy, as well as a. busy place, and one in which we ilnd an interesting place to work. As time goes on the problems progress into units of successful work. Elizabeth Anderson, Sr. I. "Mandy, what is the name of your boy?" "Hallud," the woman replied. "How'd you come to name him that? It's an odd name." "No, sah!" she replied with ve- hemence. "Dat's not an odd name, it's out of the Bible-whar it said 'Hallud be Thy name.' " -"Mother," said a little boy, "these trousers are too tightg they're tighter'n my own skin!" "Now, my boy, you know that isn't so." "It is so too. I can sit down in my skin, but I can't sit down in these trousers!" THE ORIOLE -v A THE PHENOMENON OF LIGHT. It seems as though it is the gen- eral tendency for all of us to dis- regard the common, every day es- sentials that lie about us so abun- dantly. Among these is light. Did you ever stop to think how wonderfully all-powerful it ls? If you have not, then let me tell you something of its properties. Light passes at an incredibly high rate of speed, about one hundred and eighty six thousand, three hun- dred and thirty seven miles per sec- ond. This speed seems so great that one would naturally think light would penetrate to any distance in practically no time. However, as an exam le of the immensity of our uni D - verse, let me cite you the star Polaris, which is so far away that it takes more than forty-two years for its light to reach us. Light travels about iive trillion, eight hun- dred eighty billion, two hundred twenty-two million, eight hundred twenty-eight thousand, seven hun- dred and fifty six miles in the period of a year. Remember that it would take an automobile about forty bil- lion, eight hundred and three mil- lion, four hundred eleven thousand, six hundred eighty six days to make such a trip. Compare this to a transcontinental tour and think how lonely Polaris, two hundred forty- nine trillion, six hundred fifteen billion, four hundred fifty-nine mil- lion, eighty thousand, seven hundred and nineteen miles away in the heavens. It may emphasize theg greatness of these figures if l add' that it would take an average per- son over two hundred twelve mil- lion, six hundred thirty-six thousand, three hundred and six days, to count that far. The earth is about twenty-five thousand miles in circumference. If a man and light were to have a raceg the light would circle the earth one' hundred and fifty times before the runner had traveled one hundred yards. If the man were handed'a hot-dog sandwich ,every time that the light passed, the man would haveto lay off for a three hour lunch period in order to eat them. Light moves pretty lively after all, doesn't it? Most of us understand the phe- nomenon of color, and that a color of an object is every color but the color which we see, but few of us have ever realized that there are col- ors which we cannot see. Reds, so red that they are hot, and blues so blue that they are germicidical, are strangers to most of us, yet it is known that such colors exist. It seems as though we don't ap- preciate a thing until we are de- prived of that thing. Consider a lightless earth, no beautiful colors, no warm sunshine, no vegetation, no air, no beautiful Isunsets, no anything. Never ending nights, nights hundreds of times blacker than any we know, frozen latmosphere, frozen oceans, the con- tinents barren walls of frigid sand, intense cold everywhere, cold so great that even alcohol would be- come a taffy, would characterize this world of ours. Suppose tonight the sun would be extinguished! Charles Renn. I BALTIMORE AS IT IS AND WAS. To Senior III fell the honor of giving the geography discussion dur- ing assembly, and well did they merit it. The subject, "The City Of Balti- .more," was treated from the stand- ipoint of industry, commerce, site, izone, beauty and growth. The site of Baltimore, with its ad- vantages and disadvantages, was presented by Lolita Gillespie. The present site grew out of two distinct former sites, Bush River in fHarford County and Joppa. The City enjoys the advantage of a good iharbor, easily dredged because of a iloose sandy soil, and miles of water- front along the Patapsco. Extension of the City is diflicult by reason of the surrounding hills, waterways and marshes. i Hazel Wright told of commercial :Baltimore, with its numerous rail- roads draining the winter wheat ibelt, and having direct connection with New York. Baltimore owes its ,commercial start to tobacco. It is inow the gateway to the wheat and 'cotton belts, a market for the coal iof West Virginia, Pennsylvania and ,Western Maryland, and the iron ore ifrorn the Lake Region. The rapid growth of industrial Baltimore, according to Katherine Betts, is due to its location, direct .lines of communication, proximity to raw material and abundance of ilabor. Among its 123 different in- iclustries mills, as ,in 1788, plant in 'factories the United States, canning and sugar refineries, 1 4 The zoning of Baltimore was il- lustrated by Olive Caulk. I Of Baltimore, the beautiful, An- day's Assembly. Among other things, he said that, in 1820, Balti. more was the metropolis of the na- tion, and had an enormous trade with China and Japan. During the Civi1War the position of Baltimore could be likened to that of Belgium in the World War in that her neutrality was violated by Northern troops, and the "battle of Pratt Street" was fought. Lincoln said the troops could neither Hy over Baltimore nor creep under, and hence the "invasion."- Maryland then determined to secede, but was prevented from doing so by the troops under General Butler, who, under cover of night and a violent rain storm, captured the leaders and imprisoned them in Fort Warren, at Boston, till the end of the war. Among the captured was S. Teakle Wallis, Who, during his incarcera- tion, wrote many war poems. H. Birmingham. 7 2500 B. C. One may hesitate at and ponder over the truth of the old saying, "There is nothing new under the ,sun," but we have certainly proved this many times in our Junior His- tory Class. Let me explain. We have been studying about ancient history, even as far back as three thousand years before Christ. By way of example, the other day, being interested in ,the subject, we looked up some in- Fformation concerning the civiliza- tion of the Cretans, a people who lived on the island of Crete, about twenty-five hundred years before Christ, and we ware surprised to find that a very high state of civil- ization existed at that time. They excelled, especially, in ar- chitecture. It was the palace .of Cnossus that interested us most. 5This palace was almost a town, dec- Qorated with magnificent pottery. iThe richest decoration of Cretan 'rooms consisted in elaborate mural .paintings placed between formal borders. In these paintings, pic- tures of ladies, with belt-shaped skirts, with tlounces and ruflles, elaborate embroidery, and fancy may be mentioned, flour early as 1774, glass works the largest Copper 1-efmingfgolden ornaments, contrasted with the soft, white, simple garments oi Ethe men.

Towson, Md. it a pardonable situation, because of the logical relation of my report to the talks which are to follow. Let me define first, or limit, if you please, the occasional speech. It is a speech for an occasion, but is opposite in character to a sermon, a lawyer's speech to court or jury, to the speech of a member of a deliber- lative assembly, or to the lyceum lec- ture. It is limited and inspired by the occasion, that is "the speech ex- ists because of the occasion, not the occasion because of the speech." 1 Next, let us justify this speech for the occasion. Many, many types of an occasion give rise to the speech inspired by that occasion. Among the more common of these are: the K welcome or farewell speech, presen- 'tation or acceptance, giving or re- sponding to toasts, dedications, and a speech in behalf of a cause. The talks following this will be of this 'latter type. Many, many types of people representing many walks of life, in fact every educated person may at one time or another be called upon for such a speech. And, every educated person should be able to lperform creditably before a moder- 'ate sized audience. - For the occasional speaker, these requirements are usually considered essential: a general education, for a background, more or less practice of the following types: the personal, which coincides with the personal beginningg the summary: the horta- tory, which expounds the future pos- sibilities of the subject: the quota- tion or allusion, which gives the speaker a height of emotion to which he may ily, whereas alone, he could not approach with his meagre soul's emotion, this rhetorical splendor, and emotional peak to which some fellow-author may carry him. The essentials of style are brief- ly: clarity, adaptability of speaker, to audience and occasion, and sin- cerity. The delivery is important because of the physical effect upon the audi- ence. A well-pitched voice is pleas- ing: a good medium, between a low, quick, conversational voice, and a shouting auctioneer's tone, results in a tone loud enough for the audience, and a rate slow enough for easy comprehension. Natural ,distinct enunciation is essential to the hear- er's auditory satisfaction. Gestures, movements and poise as details of general posture are important means by which the audience gains general impressions. These points are valuable for con- sideration for those who are begin- ning to study the art of public speak- ing. They give us needed theoretical knowledge, along with our practice. If we learn to accept and appreciate every opportunity for public speak- ing we will further ourselves by the practice rnethodg and if we learn to plan a speech for any occasion, with respect to time, place, circumstances and our ,own abilities, we will cer- tainly be able and worthy public in the art of speaking, and a knowl- speakers. edge of himself as well as his audi-I Maxwe1l'R.

S. N. S. It was a red letter day at the Normal School when the velour cur- tains for the windows in the Audi- torium were formally presented. The need for them was felt seri- ously last year when an attempt was made to show pictures in the hall, and the Class of '22 responded to this need by leaving as a gift to this school, some money to start a cur- tain fund. To this class and to Miss Greenlaw, the present and future students of the State Normal School, owe a great deal, for they started the movement which enabled us to obtain within a year, a very expen- sive, but a much needed piece of equipment. The present senior class agreed :to ,follow suit, land broke away from tradition by giving its gift to the school when the need was felt, not at the end of the Sen- ior year. The faculty became very much interested in the matter and not wanting to let the students get ahead of them in such a big propo- sition, they too, made a contribution. When the Alumni Association was asked to co-operate, it responded heartily, and Miss Martha Richmond gave a whole curtain in memory of her sister, Miss Sarah E. Richmond, who was, for a time, the principal of this school, and who always gave her ardent supportgto the institu- tion. Representatives of the various groups spoke in the assembly which was given over to the presentation of the curtains, Miss Robinson speaking for the Class of '22, Miss Lynch for the present Senior class: Miss Richmond for her interest in the matter, Miss Tall for the Fac- ulty, and Dr. Fawcett for the Alumni Association. ' Songs and cheers made the pro- gram lively and the spirit exhibited by the student body was suflicient to convince any one that the efforts which were put into :this project were fully appreciated by those who are now enjoying the results of those efforts.

As most of us are so busy with the daily routine of Normal that we are prone to overlook things of im- portance in our very midst, it is well to face a few statistics at times. How large a part did the library play in our life in October? During that month students used the li- brary 10,000 times, and 4,496 books were circulated, a record exceeding that of all previous months. Aside from the regular work car- ried on in the library, we are in- debted to the librarians for much extra-routine work. Since school first assembled thirty classes ln "The Use of the Library" have been con- ducted. The story-telling group of the Pestalozzi Literary Society meet here for organization and story-tell- ing. Arrangements have been made so as to give the elementary school children opportunity to come here' to read and study. The first and second grades have spent some very happy afternoon hours listening to stories told around the open fires. Miss Osborn is going to open this field of work to us prospective teach- ers for practice. The elementary' school classes have been so sched- uled as to afford opportunity for story telling by Normal students. Any volunteers who wish to put into practical use that phase of their Eng- lish course which deals with this subject will nnd their services glad- ly accepted by Miss Osborn. C. R.

"There, the period is up!" "What do we have next?" whispered an anxious Senior to the next. "Physi- cal Education," was the reply. A smile beamed upon each face. Why? Because we like Physical Education. Fun and sport are combined with work in this subject. "We will tell you about our work," said one of the girls. This latter part of this term we have been writing schoolroom and playground games for the primary grades. We not only wrote these original games, but we directed them and had the games acted by the pu- pils in our sections. Suggestions and criticisms were made by our classmates. By doing constructive work of this type we receive the beneht of planning our work and of originality. Another phase of our Physical Education work for this term has been that of reading different arti- clesg for example: "What Teachers Ought To Know About The Physical Growth Of Children." That teachers should know and recognize the fact that physical growth is the chief business of child- hood and youth. Growth must pre- cede development. The stunted body will dwarf the mind, and the incom- pletely grown and developed organ is a seat of weakness. All the parts of the body do not develop with equal rapidity at the same time. First, the vital organs grow and develop, then the heavy muscles of trunk and legs come. The sense organs and centers of perception in the brain are at the same time developing fast. - If three-fourths of a chi1d's time were spent in the open air, he would store up health and vitality of mind and body. A child between the ages of eleven and fourteen should be given as much exercise as possible. Attention to physical health should not be relaxed during the tlrst year in high school. An ex- cellent training in civic virtues is in group games, with their team play and lessons of obedience to disci- pline for the honor of class or school. An important part of the curricu- lum of our colleges is the lndus- trial and economic training. Our boys and girls are emphatically in- tent today on a life which shall ln- clude, but go far beyond getting a llvlng. Church and school are being called upon today to give an account of their stewardship. Men are asking impossible things of religion, tomor- row they will demand the impossi- ble from the school. Men are throw- ing aside old systems, methods, and habits. They are ready to be led into something higher and better. lt is the student or students of child- hood and youth who will lead this forward march. Two girls looked at their watches. "Goodness, we have talked too long!" "I know," replied the other, "but we forgot to tell about our final paper we have to write." "Oh,"' replied the other ,Senior, "we wil ltell them about that later." HALLOWE'EN AT NORMAL SCHOOL. - Have you ever seen a place where ballet dancers, fairies, clowns, street cleaners, ghosts, witches, and vari- ous other types of beings met for recreation? Such was our Auditor- ium on the night of October the thirty-Hrst when the Seniors enter- tained the Juniors and the Faculty with a little mask party. The hall itself was sufficient to re- mind any one of Hallowe'en, with- out even a glance at the numerous maskers, for there on the stage was a miniature field of corn and pump- kins and all about were autumn leaves. To stand at the door and watch those coming in was an op- portunity not to be missed, for there one saw to the best advantage, the originality and artistic beauty of the various costumes. When all had ar- rived and the crowd had passed into the Auditorium, it was a glorious sight which one looked in upon from the doors at the head of the hall. The crowd appeared as a moving sea of color, in a bockground of colors just as varied and brilliant. The first event was a race among the members of the faculty to see which could chew up a string the fastest in order to get a marshmal- low and Mr. Dunkle was the wlnner.! A grand march followed and the judges were set to the difllcult task! of choosing the best costumes, which they finally accomplished by decid- ing upon Ruth Cole and Marion Ogle. Dancing was next on the pro- gram and now fairies danced with ghosts, street cleaners with ballet dancers and various other strangely matched couples were to be seen on the floor. All of a sudden the danc- ing was called to a halt and the dancers were invited to refresh themselves with things appropriate to the occaslong cider, ginger cakes, pumpkin pie, apples, mints and peanuts. Again the music started and this time it continued until the clock proclaimed the hour of eleven, when "Home, Sweet Home" was played and the happy five hundred left the scene of gaiety, wishing that Hal- lowe'en came more than once a. year. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL- UPPER GRADES. For the past two months we have been somewhat handicapped in our work because we had to settle down to work all over again after the va- cation. However, the time has come when the majority of smaller details have become habitual and we can put our whole attention upon more important things. With the coming of November, the upper grades have been able to accomplish work that has really been worth while. As an especially good example of what has been done we consider the newspaper being published by the Sevventh grade a thing worthy rpf mention. Several of the important principles of modern education have been involvedg the idea that we learn to do best by doing and that we work best in a real situation, when a real problem presents itself. The paper was started in connection with composition work, but as it went forward it easily became a part of almost every subject taught in the grade. Some of' the problems that the children have had to solve, have been difllcult. Details of business management, mechanical problems of handling a job printing press, problems of accurate measurement, all have come up as the paper grew. We feel that the November issue, the first one, will be a great step toward the final success of our pro- ject. Two sheets have been com- pleted and the children are very proud of them. Of course, mistakes have been madeg funny ones about which we have all laughed. For instance, in Miss Virginia E. Stone's name we have a ligure "8" instead of "g". U's appear quite frequently where there should be an "n" and "d's" take the place of "b's". These have only served to sharpen the sense of sight to a better recognition of the different letters. You will probably be surprised to learn that members of the editorial stad of The Elementary Monthly are a bit superstitious, but such is the case. They hold as a token of good luck, as their four-leaf clover, the brief message sent to them by Miss Stone. She has called it "Good Luck to the Elementary Monthly," and it certainly is a means of ln- spiration. ' Sarah Payne, Sr. I. Some of the students walking along the road one day saw a guide post that read: "This will take you to Baltimore." After sitting on the sign for two hours they said, "I wonder when lt's gonna start."

RITGHIE 'S SPEECH TO THE STUDENTS OF THE MARYLAND STATE NORMAL SCHOOL. In introducing the Governor to the student body, Miss Tall remarked that the only preparation we had been able to make was taking stock of conditions in and about Normal Schoolg whetiuer they were such' as would please the Governor, and whether they were such as to please ourselves. Governor Ritchie was greeted en- thusiastically. The group before him were people who admired the sterling characteristics which have so often been seen in the public life of our Governor. "My friends, I appreciate the op- portunity afforded to address you. You know when I came into this room a rather familiar sight met me. The manner in which you are arranged makes me feel .that we are attending a political convention." The Governor paid tribute to Miss Mary Risteau, and voiced the opin- ion that the endeavors of Miss Ris- teau represented the type of politi- cal endeavor in which schools should engage. To Miss Risteau, a Balti- more teacher, he attributed the suc- cess of the passage of the Equal Rights Bill. . I think that this very fine student body is a tribute to the public senti- ment of Marylandg to have better teachers. It gives me pleasure to pay tribute to, the splendid loyalty and talent ,represented in this gath- ering and to Miss Tall for thegra- ciousness for which she is so well known. , I am interested in just what your view point may be with respect to the profession you have elected to follow. To some. teaching' is a means of making a livelihood, just like other lines of business, Fut when you men- tion the teaching profession, I would like to think that you regard it not only as a means of earning a liveli- hood, but that you feel toward your profession a love and responsible at- titude and realize the seriousness of your obligation to the State and the citizens of the State."

Personally, he seemed conddent that there would be a more harmon- ious realization of the State's nuan- cial obligation as well as the per-' sonal obligation. of teachers to -the State. "Some people," the Governor said, "are apt to regard government as a business organization, the sole pur- pose of which is enforcement of laws, and the thing in which it shows greatest interest is taxes." "National administration, State administration and City administra- tion, we look on as great business agencies, they have tyheir business aspects, but there is the greatest dinerence between government and business. Business deals with prop- erty rights, government deals with human rights. 'In the course of events business and government come into coniiict, and when prop- erty rights which are the basis for business come into conflict with hu- man interests, then the property rights have to give way under the human rights, so that the bais of government may not be imperiled or endangeredi, ior .hampered. Es- sentially the duty of the govern- ment is to see that the human rights are protected. You realize the necessity of this the more you come in contact With that class of people who carry the bulk of the load of human activities and endeavors. You can go into the mines of Western I I Maryland, and see that men digging out coal run great danger. You can go into the important railroad work shops and see men stripped naked to the waist, working in boiler rooms. The strength and security of the State is affected by the man- ner in which the .work is done, as well as the safety of the men who are doing that kind of work. State government must never let property rights coniiict with human rights." The Governor referred to the many agencies of State government that dealt with problems of human rights. He specially emphasized the Depart- ment of Health. Hleiexpressed the opinion that in so far as the State recognized and fulfilled its obliga- tions to the citizens of the State in just so large a measure would the citizens of the State realize and ful- nll their obligations to the State. He said the State can never hope to be stronger than the strength of its citizens. Governor Ritchie felt that the Work of teachers was of paramount importance. The public school was the only absolutely vital factor to the welfare of the State. In order to realize the fullest development of the qhildren of today, who become the citizens of tomorrow, they must be capably taught not only the fun- damentals of education, but there must be inculcated in children ideals of honesty, fairness towards all, and the desire to give one hundred per cent. efficiency in whatever the un- dertaking may be. Of great impor- tance in developing this attitude is the personality of the teacher. Teaching will then not only be a means of livelihood, but it will be- come something sacred, It will be- come a profession. MABEL A. PIELERT.

Washington St., Hagerstown, Md. November 28, 1922. My dear Miss Tall: Your kind invitation to visit my beloved Alma Mater on December the ninth, was received, today. To my deep, regret, I believe it is' al- most impossible for me to be pres- ent on that day, as a very important previous engagement prevents. Nev- ertheless, I shall be Witghi you in spirit, for I know there is a very delightful surprise in store for those of my classmates who can attend. It will be a day like the majority of them at dear "ole" Normal-a day of pleasure as well as enlighten- ment. I just received my first copy of the "Oriole" today. Really, Miss Tall, Words can not express my feel- ing as I read the words of that lit- tle messenger. For about three- quarters of an hour I was trans- ferred from Hagerstown to Normal. Nothing could have brought me back, either. until I had read the last word. The "Oriole" is all right! May every copy bring me as much enjoyment a's this copy and possibly more, if such a thing could really be! I am teaching in a very desirable school, only two blocks from home. Everything is moving along very nicely. We are planning for a big day tomorrow-our Thanksgiving program. I am simply in love with nearly everyone of my youngsters. All of the girls that I have heard from seem very happy about their schools. Again, I must tell you how very sorry I am that I can not accept your invitation to our "home-com ing," if I may so term it. May it be just one "grand and glorious" day for all present! May I also Wish you, in closing, a very happy Thanks- giving with "odles" of turkey and pumpkin pie. Very sincerely yours, MARGUERITE V. STONER. 2909 W. North Ave., Baltimore, Md. Dear Miss Tall: First, let me apologize for my de- lay in answering your invitation, but with the rush of changing one's residence, a holiday, and the end of the month, I find myself wishing that Father Time had made the days just twenty-four hours longer. I think the home-coming you have planned has brightened up life a bit, for me at least, because I cer- tainly do want to see you and all of last year's class too. so I'll be there on Saturday, December 9, at least for part of the day. I think our County is having a teacher's meeting on that day, and it so, I'll only be able to make the evening entertainment, but if not I'll see you all earlier in the day. I have thirty report cards smiling at me from the other side of my desk so I think I had better attend to them and tlnish out my line when I see you. p . . . Sincerely, P - IVIIRIAM A. SHAWN. ' " Brunswick, Md., November 27, 1922 My dear Miss Tall: Your much appreciated invitation to the Home Coming for the Class of '22 was just received. Pleasant memories are still vivid and you may be sure it will afford me great pleasure to attend the Home Coming on the date mentioned. It seems to me that such a day as the one you have planned will cer- tainly be most interesting and pro- iitable for us all, If the latch string is still in its place you may count me one ready to join in all the pleasures of the day. Very sincerely, PAULINE CADLE. Hanover, Md., November 28, 1922. Miss Lida Lee Tall, Maryland 'State Normal, My dear Miss Tall: It is ditiicult to imagine the feel- ing ot joy with which I read your plans for the "Home Coming." It will indeed be a home coming for me and I feel sure that my feeling is representative of the sentiment of the whole Class of '22. Unless something unforseen oc- curs, nothing Will prevent me from being present at Normal on Decem- ber ninth. I feel that 'I must express ,my gratitude for having been graduated from an institution that not only puts one in a position to graduate, but backs one up after work is be- gun in the field. Sincerely, DORIS OWENS. Long Green, Md. November 29, 1922. My dear Miss Tall: ' Your letter has just arrived and I am certainly glad to hear of the plans for a Home Coming Day for '22. I makes me feel fand I am sure all of '22 will also! that we are still very intimately and closely connected with Normal regardless of the distance that we may be from her. We will all be ready for the day, I am sure. I am looking tor- ward eagerly for the ninth and I hope to be among those present. It will certainly feel good to be back at Normal once more.

Always, the pic- ture was the same-a large, red brick building, spacious halls, 'at- tractive rooms with tables hand -chairs. Cupboards were most com- plete with piles of colored paper, scissors, crayons and costumes. But my picture has changed. In its place there is a little two-room gray stone school, with an old wooden bel- fry and a rusty bell, which has not been rung for years. The spacious hall is a little boxed in vestibule. The attractive tables and chairs are old, rickety, well cut up desks. Where is my fascinating cupboard? In the front of the room stands a little three by four bookcase and occupy- ing the top shelf is a little "stuck- up" bottle of mucilage. On the next shelf is a spool of brown cord accompanied by four pairs of loose wabbly scissors. In the front, and to the left of my room stands the furnace-an old coal stove, which has to be fed "every hour on the hour." Last, year I would have said "them days have gone forever." No, here I am teaching in the school in which the lessons were taught to the tune of the hickory stick, and I, under the same conditions must try to teach present day methods. So I will state my first problem or diffi- culty-CARRYING OUT MY PLANS WITH LIMITED MATERIALS. Frantically I worked for the iirst three weeks of school, teaching three grades and trying to keep all well occupied and interested. How was I to keep one group busy with seat Work while working with two reci- tation periods? While working and gaining with one class the others HD.iSh9d in five minutes my labor- iously planned seat work. At such times, how I longed for Normal! While there, if the earth began to tremble and crumble under my feet, there was always one "Stone" which saved my life, "Miss Virginia E." After returning home, the process of planning began. From attic to cellar I searched for pictures, ma- terials and ideas. Something differ- ent, something original, was my idea of good seat work. Therefore I worked laboriously and late into the night. I have then a second big OF KNOWLEDGE MY TIME. Had I more experience in whole day, with a grades and with all that I would have problem-LACK IN MANAGING had at Normal planning for a whole grade or subjects I feel been greatly beneiited, In the recitation period there came continually the question of "How Much?" "How much of a subject should be taken in one grade? How much should be taken in a daily les- son?" These questions may have been answered in the Baltimore Cou11ty Course. But how often I had to stop my planning to make a study of my Course. And this brings me to my third problem- ILACK OF THOROUGH ACQUAIN- TANCE WITH THE BALTIMORE COUNTY COURSE. What was the result of these dif- iiculties? Time was lost while the teacher experimented. Will the 1923 graduate enter into her work in a more eflicient way if she meets these experiences of which I have spoken in her student teach- ing? MILDRED L. BUCKLEY. A BRIEF SURVEY OF CURRENT EVENTS. We often hear people say "What is the use of studying current events, they are so uninteresting, I would rather read a good story." People who say that have never tried very hard to become interested. They pick up a magazine or paper and read for a while with their mind on something else and then expect to get information out of what they are attempting to read. Current events are educational because they seem to bea means to an end in studying history. We appreciate the past more if we can connect it with what is happening at present. The read- ing of current events make us more intelligent and broadminded and give us a new attitude towards other nations. I think that one of the most important values of current events is the fact that we are better fitted for citizenship. The following are some present lday problems which concern all of Hus and are well worth reading and understanding: A-International News: Turko-Grecian War. Settlement of the Allied Debt. The League of Nations. Lausanne Conference. Immigration Restriction. Business men and Internation- alism. Fall of Lloyd George Government. Facisti government in Italy. Irish Freedom. Red Cross Movement. German Financial Future. B-National News. Farm Loans. Prohibition. The Coal Problem. Tariff Act. Impeachment of Attorney General Daugherty. Soldiers' Bonus Bill. Outcome of the recent election. Ship Subsidy Bill. Chicago Race Riot. C1emenceau's Plea. The Philippine Trouble. Educational Bill. 1923 Budget. Supreme Court and the Japanese Question. Forest Fires. New Constitutional Amendment. Punishment of Crime. C-Local Affairs: Educational Bill. Maryland School Laws. Street Car Fares. D-General News: Sculpture by Photography. Battle with the Colorado River. Social Unrest. The Klu Klux Klan. Socialism. How many of these subjects can you converse upon intelligently? MAE SCHANZ, Sr. 6. What is the color of the wind and waves in a storm?

GREETINGS- ' ' RICHMOND HALL. " Each month Miss Tall has a spec- ial message for everybody, which she sends in a special way-through the "Oriole" This time she warns you. "Watch the bulletin board in the hall for an entirely new event.',' The plans for the new dormitory unit are nearly completed. Soon will appear the photograph for the new building. The blue prints are now on Miss Tal1's desk awaiting the criticism of the faculty and dor- mitory directors for qhe final prints. As soon as copies are received, they will be placed so that all students may see them. The new unit will be named "Richmond Hall," in honor of Miss Sarah E. Richmond, former princi- pal and teacher. The new hall will match Newell Hall in architecture. It will extend up the hill to the Ad- ministration Building level, joining Newell Hall through the bay window at the South end of the main cor- ridor. In the new dormitory there will be a large room, a commons or liv- ing room to accommodate ,two hun- dred students for social, reading or get-together purposes. It will have a large, open fire place in which real logs can be burned. Sleepy-heads, listen! Richmond Hall will have a sleeping porch. There will be sin- gle rooms and many double rooms. The double rooms will hold only two students. The nose of a third one can't be crowded into one of these rooms planned for two. Won't you like that? Mr. Wilson Smith, of Smith RL May, architects, is intelligently seek- ing structural details for comfort and better living. One hundred and twenty-five can be housed in this new building. Where would you suggest they should be drawn from? Towson? Administration Building? We are looking forward to Christ- mas, 1924, when the building is to be finished. Watch the Bulletin board. We think you all will want to live in Richmond Hall. Shall our slogan be "Seven Hun- dred Students ln 1923-192-i?" HAZEL WRIGHT. THE HOME-COMING OF THE CLASS OF 1922. An old fashioned experience meet- ing was held in the Music Room on December 9 as a part of the pro- gram of the Home Coming of the Class of '22, In this meeting, which was attended by about fifty of last year's Seniors, they talked most frankly of the joys and the sorrows which they had met' during their first year of teaching. After a most cordial address of welcome by Miss Lida Lee Tall, which made all the old girls feel just as if they were back home home again, Miss Virginia 'Stone discussed the changes which had taken place in the Elementary School, and Mr. John Dunkle fol- lowed with an earnest plea for frank criticisms of the work of the Nor- mal School, criticisms which would help the faculty to meet more ade- quately the needs of the present student body. The first speaker, Miss Evelyn Peacock, known and loved as Presi- dent of the Student Council of last year, in a very thoughtful discussion of her problems pleaded for a more varied experience in teaching. Miss Mildred Buckley, like Hamlet of old, asked her audience to look upon this picture and on this, as she painted in vivid colors the school she iwas dreaming of before graduation and the one she was teaching this ses- sion. She urged that the elemen- tary school give more definite and varied places for seat work and that the proper authorities be made to see the importance of providing pa- per, scissors and various other kinds of equipment necessary for a modern school room. ' Mr. Dunkle's request for brief re- ports from many of the other girls present met with a most hearty re- sponse, and for nearly an hour one girl after another told how she had met and solved or failed to solve her problems, and how, day by day, she was realizing the help her training at the Normal School had been in making her an eflicient worker in her chosen field. E. TIMBERLAKE. Little Boy tafter an epidemic of chicken poxl, rushed down stairs one morning very much excited and said: "Oh, daddy, I must have the chicken pox, I found a feather in the bed."

Books develop an imagination, and as we grow older this imagination grows also, and helps us live through the story with its characters. It is our aim as teachers to develop this imagination with children and give to them the gift which we ourselves enjoy. The reading of good books is one of the best ways to spend lei- sure time. Children read the books that are primarily of interest. It is our aim to develop this interest along the right path, so as to make of it an asset where in some cases it might have been a hindrance. A second purpose is enlighten- ment. First, books are read as sub- ject matter. They give the child a. broader view of what children in all lands have been doing. Books broaden the minds of, children and make them able to grasp the ideas included within the page. "Our democracy rests upon the basis of an intelligent citizenship which requires a reading and thinking people, who inform themselves regarding the civic problems and decide their course after careful consideration of the issue involved." Books help form a contrast between present day activities of people and those of yes- terday, and the preceding centuries. The third purpose is that of record. To those who have studied and gone over the libraries of schools, there seems to be a large proportion of dead and unused books of doubt- ful quality. This problem was taken over by the American Library Com- mittee to decide upon books that should be in the Elementary School Library. They judged them as books that would C13 allow for and meet appropriately the child's na- ture and develop instructive inter- ests and good taste. These books should fit the pres- ent stage of the child's development. To do this there would be special books for each grade. The commis- sion decided upon a minimum sum of money to spend in each school and worked out appropriate lists. In most all of the States, the town schools have library facilities, but few of the rural schools have. New England has provided for this handi- cap in this way: the town libraries furnish books to the rural commun- ities by means of autos fitted up with books. 'llhis is a real branch library. Let us, as teachers, if proper li- brary facilitles have not been includ- ed in our future schools, endeavor to the best of our ability to bring about a change, and give to the chil- dren the advantages of being "lovers of good books."

Poetry may be the thoughts of the soul expressed, But to write it leaves mine in a state harassed, For when I have a beautiful thought to repeat, I haven't used the right number of feet. - Even the license of which all the poets boast, Doesn't help me so very much at the most. For while I struggle with rhyme, rhythm and meter The desire to write it in prose grows so much sweeter. When I think that every line must be scanned, And the most of it will have to be "canned," I think that each one should stick to-his line, And writing poetry? is surely not mine. Poets are really born and not made, So why' continue this awful tirade? Let me express my thoughts in good old prose, Then my soul will-be in a state of repose. N. E. K., 1922.

Some docilely make all prepar- ations and tuck themselves away fully nfteen minutes before the lights go out. For the majority there is a general scurry in and out of cubicles, returning borrowed finery and speaking a. parting good- night. Above the rustle some one calls, "Who borrowed my hair curlers? Whoever has them, please rc-turn them right away. Where's my soap cup?" "I saw one in the bath room," of- fered a visitor, "perhaps that was yours." "Girls, please be quiet till I nn- ish my prayersg I can't think." "I want a drink. So do I, and I, and I." Practically Jevery one troops off to the fountain or takes a glass to the bathroom. All rush as the first bell rings. Frequently some person who is all ready for bed, and believes in doing things ahead of time, demands that the lights be turned out. Those who wait until the last minute, in- dignantly demand that they be left on. This debate sometimes ends with the former coming out' victor- ious. As the lights disappear groans go up from various corners. "I want to address a letter"g "I had just a paragraph to read in English." "I had just a few more verses in order to finish the fifteenth psalm." These people crawl reluctantly into bed. Everything is quiet for about 'live minutes, when a wail is heard. "Oh! I have a toothache. Will some- body tell Miss Amberson? Os, it hurts, deed, honest, I have an aw- ful pain in my wisdom tooth." Faint giggles. The proctor says sh-h. "But I do have a pain." Giggles grow louder. "Be quiet, or I will report you to Student Government." Si- lence again. "Who's that snoring? I can't stand it. I am going to find out." Then some one talks in her sleep.

THE ELEMENTARY MONTHLY GOOD SPORTSMIANSHIP. We say that good sportsmanship is the thing that counts in teamwork. Maybe it is not and maybe it is. The soccer team that wins is happy, the team that loses is sad. For in- stance, when the seventh grade soc- cer team was beaten by Towson School they said, "Oh! they cheated, they moved the lines." Let us stop this by saying, "We are beaten." There may have been unfair gains. Be manly though, and do not forget this: Good sportsman- ship counts. ASA BIRD GARDINER. A PAL. A pal is in the diamond, pearl, or ruby class, rare and precious, but diderent in this way: that rare as a real pal is, he is also priceless. A pal loves, forgives, forgets, sympa- thizes, understands, you don't have to excuse or explain to him. He al- ways comes to you when you need him most, and he isn't afraid if the whole world deserts you-he is there to stay. Don't you see he is your pal and you want him and he wants you? He doesn't keep things back, he is honest, above board, open, and expressive. A pal can make mis- takes and they are just mistakes, but if he isn't your pal then they are blunders instead--and you may resent thefn and be unhappy. But somehow with a pal one doesn't mind. Friendship is the basis of true happiness. Pals are true and steadfast. In trouble as in joy they are ever ready to share with each other what may come. These are the only true pals. BERNARD ANTHONY.

As Christmas draws near the spirit of Yuletide is evident in the Ele- mentary School. If you were to go into the school you would find the children at work learning Christmas Carols for their Carol- service, which they expect to give in the-Assembly. The children ,ln Mrs. Sibley's room are making toys for their Christmas tree which they already have on their sand table. They are making gifts which they expect to take home to their mothers. 4 In one corner of tile room there is a doll house which has not been furnished yet. It will not be in this condition long, because the children have already made the curtains and some of the furniture. On entering Miss Hillhouse's room, the first things that greet our eyes are two large pictures of Santa Claus with his bundles pasted on the window panes, The children of the Second Grade are making Christmas booklets in which they expect to write their Christmas stories. If you were to walk into Miss Buckley's room on Thursday morn- ing at the last period, you would find the pupils of the Third and Fourth Grades busily at work, for Miss Buckley has a free work period in which each child has the privilege of choosing his own work. The children a e divided into different committees, appointed by the chil- dren themselves. N There are two cooking commit- tees. Eliza Horner is chairman of one and James Leslie is chairman of the other. These committees have made butter scotch, fudge and pea- nut butter candy. The candy is made in the class room and cooked in Miss Amberson's room. All the materials and utensils are brought by the children from their homes. There is a building committee, with Wilson Andrew as chairman. This committee is making a toy slide for the First Grade. They ,have the steps completed and are now sanding the board! for the slide. There are three printing commit- tees, with Jack Byrne, Robert John- son and Royston Green as chairmen. These committees hope to be able to print some posters. There is a joint activity of all the different grades. Under the aus- pices of the Children's Aid, the school has taken a poor family and are planning to give the children of this family a "Merry Christmas." GRACE MARTIN, Sr. III.

Little, Sr. V. Upper Grades. The upper grades of the elemen- tary school, after mudu planning have at last settled down to work and are accomplishing some real, good, educative work. The seventh grade are still carry- ing on their project of publishing a monthly newspaper. The November issue has 'been published and the class is working hard on the Decem- ber issue which they are hoping to have completed before the holidays begin. They expect this one to be far superior to the former number because gthey have criticised their' paper and made plans for its cor- rection. They gave a very good dramatiza- tion of "The Destruction of Grand Pre," under the instruction of Miss Helen Schuoler, which was worked out from their study of Longfe1low's "Evangeline," The ability of the instructor .and children was truly visible in this dramatization, and an audience could feel the spirit of those early French settlers who were driven away from their comfortable homes. The children are working out problems to develop their character, being careful tg be courteous, kind, responsible and above all, a good sportsman, acknowledging defeat in good spirit and resolving to win in the next attempt. The sixth grade deserves some mention. They, with the seventh grade, made a trip to Sheppard and Pratt and gave a Marionette play to the patients. They enjoyed this trip very much. In return for their work they were invited into the workroom where they viewed some interesting work done by the patients. They saw a book they had bound, a rug anl shawl they had woven, and some printed programs. After hearty re- freshments, they came home feeling very happy over their trip. ' Some sixth graders who deserve personal mention are: Mary Carpen- ter, who won the gold mounted fountain pen, offered as a prize' by "The Sun," to the person writing the best historical account of "The Old Shot Tower." ' Mary Alice Wood, Mary Virginia. Harris and Mary Carpenter very creditably took part in "The Grass- hopper," given by the "Little Play- ers" in Baltimore last week.

That little Oriole will see its first Christmas this year, and sure 'tis a brave songster, he must be to face December's snows so cour- ageously, in order to carry his little message. Somehow, it has leaked out that a class of people we will just call "Some o' those Juniors," haven't been so interested in keeping that Oriole well-fed. Just let us tell you: by the time you've left Normal, and are well out on your own hook, you too, will eagerly wait for the Oriole to learn of any hints you may find to help in teaching that young idea to shoot, and you'll hope that those classes back at sqhool will fill it full of all kinds of good things, just as we are hoping now that you will. That's all we "old folks" have to say this time, except to remind you that the Oriole needs much attention during the winter months, and to wish to it and all the Normal Carol Singers-"Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year ln 1923." THAN KSGIVING DANCE. "A bit of nonsense now and then, ls relished by the wisest men." Saturday night, December the ninth, marked the opening social function of the Class of '23, My! What a day! Up bright and early, and Oh! So happy. Just as busy as bees preparing to make the first dance a great success. From each corner of the hall came a chatter. Ann De Ran in one corner, perched upon a step ladder, furnished us her wit to keep us laughing during our work. From another corner might be heard: "l can't walt for night. I haven't seen Billie for so long. Who are you bringing, Helen? Hope my man gets here early. Just got ferns, cut flowers and cozy corners. The maroon and gray hung grace- fully across the hall. My! don't you love it? Our first Senior dance, too! Who'll ever forget it? The glow of the multi-colored lights and confetti. A number of members of the Class of '22 were present, including Misses Bessie Robinson, Pauline Ca- dle, Dorothy Dudderer, Naomi Prit- chett, Mary Smith, Miriam Shawn, Erna Herrmann, Mina Horn, Vir- ginia Davis and Lorlynne Taylor. Too much cannot be said about the committee in charge. They were etiiciency personified. Was the dance a success? Yes, it was more than a success. It takes the seniors to put it across. The dance closed at a late hour, and oh! how short the evening did seem. But Seniors, just console yourselves, for the future has in store for you, in regard to social functions, great expectations.

COOK. State Superintendent Albert S. Cook spoke to us at Assembly in De- cember. In introducing him our Principal said that he believed in his profession. He is a skillful diagnostician. He knows strength in a teacher and encourages itg he detects weaknesses and knows what remedies to apply to overcome themg he understands the education of the very little child and knows whether a first grade teacher uses progres- sive methods in reading. He knows that a teacher can make a mistake, but his friendship endures and he helps that one to more fully over- come such. Hhe is generous, impul- sive, keen, witty, and merry. But above all else, nrst and foremost, he is a teacher himself. A CALL T0 TEACHERS. Mr. Albert S. Cook visited Nor- mal School last Monday and each and every one of us is the better as a result of what he said to us. Al though Miss Tall partially prepared us for something very unusual and exceptionally ine, we, ourselves dis- covered our State Superintendent. We feel the concensus of opinion of the student body is, if our Superin- tendent has so much faith in us, so much confidence in the far reaching benefits to be derived from Normal Schools fespecially our Normal Schoolj, that We will of necessity just have to make good, measure up to his standard of the conception of what a teacher should be and be loyal to the ideals and standards set up as a result of Normal training. Superintendent Cook took occasion to express ,bis unqualified approval and delight with the activities of Maryland State Normal School. He said "I do not want you to feel that I am trying to say anything iiatter- ing about this school. The State Board of Education and the State leaders are absolutely sincere in be- lieving that the State Normal Schools are the most important things in the State of Maryland." 'The teacher and the teacher's preparation are of greatest importance, and because we believe the prepartion of the teach- er of such importance, we feel that -Normal School are very essen- tial. The State of Maryland now has, in addition to this school, the Normal School at Frostburg and will have another at Salisbury." Our Superintendent expressed the 1 ALBERT S. COOK Our State Superintendent hope that tuition in a Normal School would be free just as our high schools are free. The fact that we have on roll five hundred and five students is pleas- ing and gratifying. The matter of enrollment is a thought which called: forth statements that very effective-I ly answer the cynically critical atti- tude evidenced by some people or factions. Mr. Cook stated emphati- cally "No school system ever pro- vides empty rooms. If there is any school system that does, please tell' me. Neither does it provide seats for pupils who are not ready to go to school." Crowded conditions are, bound to obtain for a period of time. lt is impossible to get appropria- tions until we can demonstrate to the people of the State that there is+ a pressing need to remedy existing conditions. ' Looking over the large body of people now preparing to becomel teachers, Mr. Cook remarked: "Ii realize that a large percentage of you are not going into this profes- sion as a life job, this is one rea.- son why we have to have so manv .teachers The State it not losing anything by training you because 1 believe that ithe. training you' get here at Normal School is the best possible training any woman can get for becoming a home maker." Re- ferring to a recent address he made to the Sisters of Mt. St. Agnes, lo- cated at Mt. Washington, Md., Mr. Cook said that when he realized he was addressing a body of women who were pledged to a life job in teaching, the experience was such as to cause him to become nervous, be- cause never had he addressed so many women whose avowed inten- tion was to teach school during all the years of their life. ' Referring to a statement made that most of the boys were at Nor- mal School for the ulterior purpose of eventually becoming doctors or lawyers, our Superintendent ex- pressed himself as not believing that they were in school with that idea in mind. He said "I believe that the majority of those having entered the profession will stay in it. And why not? Is there a profession more honorable, more worthy of giving the best that is in us, one that is freer from commercialism and fuller of opportunities to be of service to God, to country and to mankind? And for those who complain there is no chance to grow, for promotion, answering in Mr. Cook's own words "There is plenty of room at the top." Why? Because there are so few peo- ple prepared to take positions at the top. You may be su1'prised when I say to you I know of at least five or six important school positions in the State of Maryland that will be vacant in the next six months. 'We will fill one vacancy and thus create an- other. The people who are ready to occupy these positions that I have in mind can be counted on the nn- gers of my hand." The tragedy of the situation is that so many go on teaching year after year, looking forward to occu- pying some desirable as well as lu- crative position, but never taking the trouble to prepare themselves for the position. One of the most important teaching positions is that of County Superintendent, and our' speaker added, there is no reason why a woman should not occupy that positiin if qualified to do so.

RHYMQES OF THE STAIR-CASE. Tread, tread, tread, tread, A swinging aloft, a step at a time, A landing, then upward in rhythm and rhyme. Up, and up, and up, and up, Every step brings nearer the sky, Nearer the place where rosy dreams lie. I Life's just a staircase,- Bottom, then climb, with brain and brawn, A landing, to view and plan, then on. Up,-up, to the top of life, The last stretch drags beneath our feet. At the top at last, the way was deet. Fit this rhyme to your steps, and sing them in your heart, and your climb to the third door of Newell Hall won't seem half so tiresome and uninteresting. At least, when I took the journey ,to interview this door, it seemed so. And the reward of an interview was certainly Worth the journey, for at the top I met the personality of the third door, and was greatly impressed. You may doubt that a personality may be found on any given floor, but you will agree that a house has a per- sonality, and if a house, why not a section of a house? Indeed, you will find that every door of Newell Hall has a different atmosphere, be- cause of difference in personality. From the top of the stairs I walked into the main hall of the third door. During the working hours of the day you are apt to be repulsed by a long, dark hall, deserted and bare. and fast closed doors, and conse- quently miss a personality Worth knowing. To really know and ap- preciate the third door you must visit it often, or if possible, live with it. The soul of the third door is a composite of many sided combina- tions and temperaments. It is a poet and philosopher. Has it not the broadest and most beautiful view on all surrounding life? Does it not view life more as a whole than any other door? It is an artist and mu- sician. Its many eyes are the very drst to see opal dawn, rosy sunset. blue mountains, winding road and streams and all the beauties of na- ture. It not only sees with its eyes and paints the gold and rose redee- tions on its walls, but fairly im- plores us to see and share with it these beauties. What other door can put you to sleep with the music of the rain on the roof and the whistling of the wind? lt is the most hospitable and gen- ial of hosts. Its lower ceilings, dormer windows, wide open doors, with lamplight and laughter stream- ing into the hall give the cosiest and warmest of receptions. And then, is not the third door the good natured, irresponsible butt for the jests, call-downs, jokes and tricks of the whole building? And, as a result, the girls who live within the arms of this many- sided personality, are the best of fellows, friends, and students. Come and know us. We know it will be 'worth your while. THOSE OF THE 3RD FLOOR. SHOULD WE BE PROUD OF THIS? Normal received a distinguished visitor recently from the Depart- ment of The Interior Bureau of Ed- ucation of Washington, D. C. This visitor and friend of Normal is Miss Dorothy Hutchinson, Junior Special- ist in School Hygiene. On her tour of Normal Schools, she stopped at the Maryland State Normal School to find out what is being done in Phy- sical Education. Several original games were given with which Miss Hutchinson was greatly pleased, be- cause of their originality, and the capable manner of their execution. The games that were played are: "Two in a Seat," by Margaret Mun- casterg "Whirlwind," by Anna Mae Smith, and "Blocks Stack," by Mary Simmons. Miss Hutchinson was so pleased with .the valuable sugges- tions that she wrote Miss Cook a letter, requesting that the material should be sent her, with permission of the girls, to have it put in t-le Teaqher's Physical Education Bulle- tin. Of course you must realize how much this means to the Maryland State Normal School, and how happy we feel that Miss Hutchinson wants our material. A part of every term in Physical Education we have been required to write original games and story-plays, based on child psycholo- gy and physiology work. Every Senior has been taught to make original games and to direct them and they have the satisfaction of knowing that they can do this when the need may arise. Our work in this field has been recog- nized favorably. Keep the good work up Seniorsand show the Jun- iors how, whispers '23. . MARGARET HUBBARD. "I punished you merely to show my love for you," said the fond father. after the chastisement. "That's all right," sobbed the small boy. "But's it's a good thing for you I ain't b-b-big enough to re- turn your l-l-love, that's all." THE ORIOLE 3 "CAROL, CAROL, IN THE COLD." Possibly our outstanding pleasure before tghe holidays was the carol singing. One could hear humming throughout the halls. At times, early in the morning, the boys sang on their way to breakfast. Late at night students coming from the li- brary sang out in their clear tones across the campus. The climax came when every one sang carols around the lighted Christmas tree on the boys' athletic Iield. The beautiful pine tree seemed to have grown there solely for that purpose. Through the good services of our engineer, the tree was lighted. The Towson people came and sang with us. There is now one more bond between the students, school and the community. A Christmas party followed with great fun and a good time for every one. School opened on January the third. Wyhen students come back to school from a holiday there is al- ways a happy atmosphere for the principal, because a long recess com- ing in the middle of the year means new pulse, new ideas, and new re- solves. The drive for the next year is then on and the school becomes geared to larger power. The year began with a very im- portant event. The student body sent a delegation of four students to the Trenton, New Jersey, Normal School on January the fifth, to study the student organization in that school and bring back to us ideas and plans for our own further stu- dent achievement., Notice this Oriole for a report of the trip. Dr. Savitz, principal of the New Jersey Normal, gave his entire day to our delegates, which is a courtesy we all appreciate. He was kind enough to say that he expected to get as much from our visit as we got from his school. Time flies when the new year is ushered in. As we look forward into the future, the June closing of school seems very near. We have much to accomplish between now and the second week of June, but we have a fervid spirit with which to achieve The feeling of co-operation and teamwork between students and fac- ulty will push us through to the end, gloriously, we trust.

Fashions are ever changing, events are taking place, men are being born, they live their lives and are forgotten. In the years that follow these long forgotten happenings are brought to mind and men recall all they have heard about the event or what they ,have readg these facts or what are considered facts, they combine and give to the public as history. How do we know whether or not a great deal of the book is not the imagination of the author? We want to know the truth about things. Now comes the question, where are we to look for the true account of these events? There are stories which are hand- ed down from generation to genera- tion, but you know ,how a story changes in its progress from person to person, so we cannot rely on this. We must have something more real, something tangible. In this case, there are the tombs and temples of early Egypt, the buildings and roads of ancient Rome, the old cities of the Peruvians, and the clii-dwellers of our own country. Yet, if we do not know who built these structures or what manner of people lived at the time they were erected, what good do they do us? In some of these buildings have been found written works which give us our in- formation concerning the country, the people and their government. Thus we have the kind of book where we can gain the knowledge we seek, that is, in accounts which were written at the time the event took place. The person who wrote them knew more about what hap- pened, what the sentiment of the people was on the subject and all the facts which go to make upthe incident, than do people who live today. You who are studying American History are troubled with just this thing, that is: finding original ac- counts of the early history of our country. The following books are original sources, where you may find the truths you are seeking. Bowie, E. J.-Spain in America. In this book we find extracts from original histories of the Spanish ex- plorers. Hart-American History, told by Contemporaries. James - Readings in American History.

A CALL TO TEACHERS. KContinued from Page ll er among the great body of men and women teaching throughout the State, qualities that are indicative of progress, evidences of initiative and executive ability. When they find teachers possessing these quali- ncations and see that they are suf- ficiently interested in their profes- sion to go on developing, learning new methods, attending summer schools in order that they may be the better equipped to handle pres- ent day problems of education and give to their schools the best that the field of education has to offer, such evidence of professional inter- est and growth will surely meet with reward. No man in Maryland knows the school situation better than does Al- bert S. Cook, and no man in any State in the Union has done more towards advancing a school system and the interests of teachers cou- nected with the public schools than has our State Superintendent. There- fore, it behooves us to respond to his call, to be progressive, in order that we may develop a better system of public education. MABEL A. PIELERT. Assembly Representative. A CORRECTION.

The New Jersey State Normal School is situated on one of the main streets of Trenton. The buildings are much older than our, and are by no means, as excellent architectural- ly, as the Maryland State Normal School. Their campus is very much smaller than ours, a fact which seemed very lamentable to us. How- ever, there were certain things of special interest to usg the location ot the school: the main building, and the boys' dormitory. The position of their school is of great value to them. Its proximity to the railroad station, and the boat wharves enables them to increase the number of day students, thus making it possible to accommodate more studentjs in the dormitories They have two hundred and thirty day students. Their main building, the recita- tion building, is situated directly across the street from the girls' dor- mitories. In the basement of the building, they have the elementary schools, the manual training room and the cafeteria for the day stu- dents. The experimental schools are very much like our own. The man- ual training room is Well equipped with machinery and material. Very many girls take the. course and their work is commendable. The cafe- teria, situated under the gymnasium. is about the same size as our dining room. Six students are seated at each table, and the serving is done by girls of the school. Only the day students eat here, the others eat in their dormitories. On the nrst floor they have class- rooms, much like our own, except that every teacher's room has a pri- vate omce adjoining it. At the up- per end of the building 'we visited the gymnasium. This is large and well equipped. On either side of the gymnasium are showers, and the locker rooms for the boys and girls. On the second floor are all of the main oitices, the library, a second gymnasium, and most of the labor- atories which include rooms for do- mestic science, chemistry, biology. and physics. Next to the biology classroom they have a small glass enclosed room that they reserve for growing plants, to use in their ex- periments. The library isumuch larger than ours and appears to con- tain more volumes. It is open dur- ing the school days and on Satur- days, but notduring the evenings for study. All of the text books are given to the students. The second gymnasium is smaller than the' first but is well equipped, so that a class may be held in it while one is being held in the main auditorium. On the third floor they have their auditorium, where they hold their assembly, or chapel, as they call it, twice a week, because it takes too much of the school time to have it every day. Their assembly room is about the same size as ours, and though they have no stage, there is a platform on the side of the room. The boys' dormitory, which con- sists of a private dwelling, made over into a dormitory, is about two blocks from the school. The boys have one very small sitting room. It is furnished with a piano, a table and several chairs. Altogether, the room looks rather bare. All of thc other rooms, except the kitchen, have have been made into bedrooms. Each bed room is fitted with a dresser, two beds and two chairs. Some of the larger rooms are nice, but the smaller ones were not very attrac- tive. The kitchen contained a stove fthat could be used for any domestic purpose that the boys might need it forj, a table and sev- eral chairs. As all of the cleaning is done by a maid, the house is kept in excellent order. On the whole, the quarters for the boys compare favorably with those here at the Maryland State Normal School. MY TRIP TO THE TRENTON NORMAL SCHOOL. Although we were only at the Trenton Normal School about six hours. we did learn something about the different kinds of courses which are given there. They have a general course which is very much like the course which we all take here, but the majority of their students take special work in various subjects. There are many courses which are offered to the students, for instance: physical education, biology, industrial arts, manual training, and perhaps others which we failed to learn about in our short visit. To take a special course it is required of the student that she give a certain amount of extra time to that subject and, that in her student teaching, emphasis be placed upon the teaching of that subject. There is one course which I have not spoken of which interested me most of all. That is a course in special work for the children whose mentality is sub-normal. We visit- ed this class in the Elementary School, and were murh absorbed in it, so much so, that we hated to have to leave without learning more about it. The class consisted of ten children, ranging in age from eight to dfteen years. These children were interested in a society they had formed and were happy in telling us all about it. Special work in this class is given in connection with the psychology department and some of the stu- dent teachers do their teaching in this class. These student teachers have given extra time to the study of such children. Besides the special class, the Big Sister and Brother work is done in connection with the psychology de- partment. In the Elementary School there are just about the same num- ber of children as there are students in the Normal School. Each stu- dent gets fby chancel a little Sister or Brother from the Elementary School. The student keeps this child as her little Sister or yBrothcr throughout the year, giving parties for him, taking him to entertain- ments, helping him with his les- sons, and all the time making a study of, and watching his growth and development. The students take their little Sister or Brother to places of interest and note the man- ner in which he reacts to diiferent situations. Every prospective teach- er considers her little Sister or Brother as a special psychology prob- lem, and all her work in psychology is given to the understanding and the helping of this child, In general, all Normal Schools are alike-their work being to train teachersg but, from the little which I saw of the Trenton Normal School, I am convinced that each has its own individuality and each can learn from the other. Our day was ex- ceedingly profitable, and we are all grateful to Dr. Savitz, the Principal, and to Dr. Bessie Lee Gambrill, who gave their time and help to us. HELEN COX, '23, PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT CHART. The Personal Achievement Chart which the Trenton Normal is using at present, was made with the fol- lowing thought in mind: "Personal achievement means individual suc- cess in some worthy cause that will help to make living finer or happier." Accordingly, the various things which they are attempting to achieve were listed on a chart so that all would know the various objectives. The big purpose of this achieve- ment record is to develop all around students. But under this comes minor heads such as developing un- known talent, building up loyalty to the school through making people responsible and developing initia- ive and originality. It is worked in this way: First. the various objectives are listed nn- der several big heads. Trenton Nor- mal has them listed under six big heads: ill social service, which in- cludes such things as--holding oilice, teafhing another to dance, student practice honor. always being cheer- ful, table manners and teaching Sunday School. CContinued on Page 63 6 THE ORIOLE tContinued from Page 51 121 Athletics, which includes pos- ture, walking one mile in a certain time and participation in athletic contests. 133 Health, which includes free- dom from colds for two consecu- tive months and perfect attendance at classes three consecutive months. MJ Arts, which includes the man- ner of your dress and the cleanli- ness of your room. Q55 Nature study and observation, which includes identiticatiionfiof u certain number of birds, trees and flowers. t6l General improvement, which includes taking field trips, dramatic activities in which you may have taken part, and Y. W. C. A. attend- ance. For each achievement planned, and successfully accomplished, a stu- dent receives one honor and a certain number of credits. The credits vary according to the achievement, but only one honor is allowed to each. The honors are averaged at the end of the term and the total number at the end of the year. The high- est seventy-nve in the list, receive a gold star at Commencement time. The question of awarding these honors and credits is taken care of in this manner-The total number of students in the school are divided into teams of about forty-tive each, Each team elects its own team lead- er. The team leader keeps a record of the students on his team, gives the honors and credits, and keeps a record of the same. To Win an hon or a student must perform one of the objectives listed on the chart, under supervision .of another stu- dent. The student who did the su- pervising must then sign a. paper. stating that the other has success- fully performed the test. This is given to the team leader, who gives the student one honor and the num- 'i' of credits which that achieve- ment deserves. This Personal Achievement Chart is held in high esteem by the stu- dents at the Trenton Normal, and l'fl:i produced splendid results, con- sidr-ring the short time it has been in operation. From reports which we get from students, the spirit of loyal- v to the school has been greatly de- vcloped by making students responsi- Ulf- for things which they do on their 'i initiative. Likewise it seems 'hut there are not any students at t' c Trenton Normal who have notli- ing to do outsidf- of school hours. .XI M. S. N. S., it is just the oppo- sitf-. Here it seems that just a few joltl all the ofliccs. not because of popularity or the honor that may go with such positions, but lit-cause th:-rc are too few whoshow enough talent or interest in affairs to hold these oihces. This was the c:f::u:t, state of affairs at Trenton before thu v Achievement Chart was introduced. ow one student does not hold more than one oflice, and those who do not hold an office have plenty to do in passing the tests on the achieve- ment record. Altogether, consider- ing the wonderful results which the plan has accomplished at Trenton, l think it would be wise to introduce the Achievement Chart at M. S. N, S., and, I think, modified to suit our needs, it would produce the same splendid results that it has there. MENARIS FRANCE. SOME LAUNDRY HELPS. Ethel Wilde. What is so insignificant and yet so important as a laundry marker? I wonder if every girl realizes the extra work caused by the absence of a marker or the room number on the laundry slip. The workers have no idea to Whom a garment belongs if it is not marked, consequently, the laundry slip is sought. If that does not supply the desired information, the number of every student has to be looked up. Considering that the laundry does work for tive hundred students, faculty and dormitory, it must be realized that every minute is valuable. Much time is wasted in looking for the markers. Mrs. Wood has asked that the marker be sewed in a specitied place Where it can easily be found. . Those of you who have been in the laundry when the mangle is in operation probably have noticed the big basket that stands beside it. This contains the wet laundry and is of- ten twisted and tangled with many strings and ribbons. Here again time is wasted in untying this mass of knots. This conditiion can be avoided if each girl will remove the ribbons before putting the garment in the laundry. The laundry pad provided by the dormitory plays an important part in the regular routine. This pad must be dated, have the students' name, corresponding laundry num- ber, that which is on the garment, an itemized list of garments. lf piece of clothing is missing af- the sorting, it is found by look- through the lists. A mistake on ilst will probably cause the gar- and one ter ing the ment to tind its way into the basket of unclaimed articles. By remembering these few seem- ingly little things, much time, effort, money and patience will be saved in the laundry. ORCHESTRA PRACTICE. J. Owen Thomas. I wonder how many students, when they heard the product of their School Orchestra, think of the work attached to the preparation of such a number. Allow me to take you into my confidence. Members straggle into the room in groups of two or three and casu- ally begin tuning their instruments. Our pianist, whcfi is an ardent ad- mirer of jazz breaks forth with "Early in The Morning Blues." Of course she is accompanied by several other instrumentsg the traps stand- ing out above the din. Mr. Director raps for order and we take our places. We will start by practicing an old number, page fourteen. Where 'is the music? There is a groan as our Concert Master dashes out of the room, into the next room after' the precious music. In he dashes again and distributes said music to the players. We are now ready- to start., All is quiet, ready-sn-ap! Miss Violinist breaks her A-string. She opens her case, but finds that she has every other string but an A. May she borrow one? She does, and 'eeds to replace the broken one. Now her violin is tuned and we heave a sigh as the Director raises his baton to start us again. A blare and we're off, the cornets crashing in our ears. The trombone adds to the so-called music while the drums top the outfit off. The Director raps for order and atten- tion. Wfiat is wrong with the cor- nets? Heavens! They've been playing on page seven at'double time because fourteen is out of their book. Our Honored Sir fixes this matter up and starts us again with a little better success. . The slamming of the door to our backs announces that a late mem- ber has arrived, and each one of ns attempts to see who he or she may be. The result is evident. We get out of time, violins, cornets, drums, 'cel- lo, are all playing different pas- sages. The professor raps for order. He gets it. Our tardy member pro- ceeds to tune her instrument, as do the others in the group. We begin again and this time manage to strug- gle throurh the number. Mr. Direc- tor points out several parts that should be noticed and announces that we will play it again without repeats. Off we start. going line, but, alas! when we hit the first dou- ble bar the pianist and cornets start all over again while the rest of the orchestra proceeds. One by one the instruments stop while his majesty proceeds alone until he realizes that we have stopped. We start all over again and the result is half decent. The second number is announced and off we start like the New York Symphony Orchestra. Oh! if it were possible to have rehearsal and make no mistakes! Above all things ne- cessary to a musician is a keen sense of humor. Even if he hasn't one he must bluff, and make the rest of the players believe that he has. I know from experience. THE ORIOLE -v I THE NIGHT BEFORE OUR XMAS HOLIDAY. Hark, the Normal Students sing, Oh, how their voices ring Over the campus and for many a mile, Everyone was greeted with a smile. All gathered round the tree, Every heart is full of glee, Carols sung from many a rhyme, For 'twas Merry Xmas time. The Xmas spirit reigned through- out M. S. N. S. on Wednesday even- ing, December the twentieth, at seven-thirty, for the students gath- ered around a large tree on the North Campus, which was brilliantly lighted with many colored lights, to sing carols. Many residents from Towson attended the carol service, which lasted about an hour. After the carol singing we met in the Auditorium for our annual Xmas party. You might ask if we had a good party? A good party doesn't express it. The hall was beautifully trimmed for the occasion, with many colored lights, palms and cedar trees. Oh! the Xmas tree was love- ly, and we had a Santa Claus who brought us candy, nuts, figs, dates and ice-cream. Oh, yes, and I most forgot the present. Many games were played, and later some one shouted 'on with the dance,' 'and as usual, we danced u.1- til a late hour. Our party Was a great success, in fact, it was the best one we have ever had. I think we can say the reasons for it being such a success were: First, because we all enjoyed it in one large hall to-. gether, and best of all, the faculty. My, yes, the faculty, they were all there to help enjoy our party with us. At a late hour, when all the Jun-- iors were calm, still and tucked in their beds, dreaming of the morrow, when they would tread their weary way home, the voice of every Sen- ior was heard on the Campus, sing- ing their Class Song, school song, and Xmas carols. They not only' sung on the Campus, but through both dormitories and at our Princi- pal's house. At Miss Tall's, as usual, we were greeted most cordially and she came and stood amongst us when we sang our school song. We departed, shout- ing her a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. This night left an impression upon every student of M, S. N. S. which long remembered. BETTY WORTHINGTON, '23. Here in peace lies Pat O'toole, He got too close behind a mule. -St. John's Collegian. ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. "Did you ask, 'Was the carol ser- vice a success?' " If you had seen the children marching into the Auditorium, singing their carols, led by three small children dressed in red, you would have said, "Yes" Besides the carols by the entire school, each grade sang a carol alone. The best thing on the pro- gram was the song by the three children dressed in red, entitled "Away ln A Manger." The real Christmas spirit was shown, when, gathered around the Christmas 'tree in the Elementary Assembly, the children brought their gifts for the poor family of seven children, whom the school has adopted. When the truck was load- ed, it was found that it would hard- ly hold the good things, the children had brought. January 'dnds us all down to hard work again. The little people of the first grade in Mrs. Sibley's room have been busy painting the doll house they made. You should see the hammocks of dif- 'ferent colored wool they are making for their house. Each child has ,made a little booklet in which dif- ferent objects were pasted and the names of the objects pasted above the pictures. The third grade in Miss Hill- ghouse's room, have become the fam- -ous producers of a movie which they presented to the first and second grades, and the teachers of each. This movie was called, "In Eskimo YLand," and was suggested as a re- iview of the geography they had been istudying. The name of the movie !was suggested by a member of the ,third grade, and it seemed .quite :fitting because the picture represent- ,ed every phase of the life of the lEskimos. f ln Miss Buckley's room, the free Iwork period has been a success. gSome of the cooking committees 'made gingerbread and others ginger cookies. The boys are working on -their toy slide and the printing com- .mittees are working with their .presses l During December all the children .of the school were weighed. Of the lone hundred eighty pupils, only nine- iteen were found underweight. To ,remedy this condition, any child, ,whose parents so desire, may have 'milk at recess in the morning. lTwenty-six of the children are now -availing themselves of this oppor- ltunity. We hope, by such means, to ibring all of our children to the nor- imal weight of the average boy and 1 . girl. NORMAL ON THE JOB- LEAVE IT T0 US. One day when we had very dis- tinguished guests in Assembly, we became embarrassed because of the lack of appropriate stage parapher- nalia, to add harmony to the occa- sion. The Normal Society felt that it would like to give something to the school by which it could be re- membered. After consulting with Miss Greenlaw, we found that there was material here that could, with the aid of all the Normals, be made into a beautiful curtain. We put the proposition before the society and they agreed that this would' be a gift, not only beautiful in itself, but useful and beneficial to the en- tire school, not only this year, but for years to come. Any of you who attended the concert last Friday night can bear witness to the effec- tiveness of this, our new cyclorama. TE-PA-CHI MEETING. The Te-pa-chi Club held its regu- lar meeting Friday evening, Janu- ary 5th. The meeting was called to order by the president, Mr. Sneer- inger. The minutes were read and approached. Three new members were elected: Mrs. Wingate Smith and Mr. and Mrs. L. R. Andrew. After various announcements had been made and the business meet- ing concluded the members were given a real treat in the way of a musical concert, arranged by Mr. Samuel Eschenbach. The following program was rendered: Piano Solos-Miss Ruth Spicer. Vocal Solos-Miss Schroeder. Duet-Miss Schroeder and Mr. Eschenbach. Solo-Mr. Eschenbach. Violin selections with Piano ac- companiment-Mrs. Vivian Cordero Friz and her sister, Miss Cordero. This program was enjoyed by all and every one plainly showed his appreciation. OUR FRIEND.

The clock in the tower 'strikes three, a bell is heard and there is a grand rush down the hill to the dor- mitory. Crowds file through the door, voices and the patter of feet are heard in the halls. No more peace now until all are snug in be-i. How trying it is for any one who en- joys the silence and quiet of their own little room. Silence! Quiet! Are such things known after school hours? The answer can be given by any who room on the second iloor of Newell Hall. Why are the girls keeping one eye on their work and one on their watch? Oh, yes, now I know, they are wondering if the mail will ever come. , It just seems ages since they have had a letter, althohugh that morning two or three fat ones were resting Deacefully upon their beds. The second floor mail is being de- livered at last! We all just love the mail carrier andcthose who do not follow her, are standingv in their doors, with a sweet smile upon their faces. But, cb, most cruel world, if she should pass them by, from their looks you would think years had passed over their heads. Many are the comments heard by us, in such cases, but the mail carrier hears many, many more. You can always tell who receives mail, when you meet them in the hall, for they have radiant faces, but how quickly your spirits fall when you meet one who has been disappointed, like we They continue their work, quite for- getful of the time, until the blink- ing of the lights tells them it is time to retire. Do they always rest when the last blink comes? The doors come open easily, the light from the hall falls upon the girls sitting, here and there, in the doorway. They, lperhaps, think they can finish what lthey have started. The Proctor lucreeps along the corridor to see that all lights are outg being satisfied, shqh returns to her room. Those in 'the doorwoy are bent to their task once more. Alas! a familiar voice 'is heard not far away, "Girls, it is time to go to bed," thus Mrs. Din- gle arrives upon the scene. This scene calls for action. The girls rise and out of courtesy to our Social Director, silently close the door as 'she passes by. Preparations for bed are ,done in 'the dark, because we must not turn ,on any lights, our Proctor may see. In the various rooms, the covers are pulled back by slim, little hands, and the inhabitant of that bed is once more at rest. Thoughts prevail at suqh times until the merciful sand- man exercises his power, which makes memories blank to the days' happenings and brings sweet dreams to reign in their place.

Six o'clock already! The dinner bell is ringing. Now for a grand rush from the rooms, accompanied by the banging of doors, because there will be a terrible line in a few minutes. A voice from away down the hall is heard, "Save me a place." 1Whether the place was saved or not we do not always know. Dinner is over and quiet reigns on the second floor once more. It is now social hour and dancing in the Recreation 'Room is the chief at- traction. Seven forty-five, voices are heard 'ii the hall again. They are return- ing to their rooms, some in groups. talking and laughing in highly ex- cited voices, others in couples, talk- ing low and earnestly, about what. we do not know, probably many could guess.

C101 . l ! 1 e THE ORIOLE 9 THE HUMOROUS SIDE OF STUDENT TEACHING. If you stop to think about it, you will find that there is a humorous side to almost everything and l know that every boy and girl who goes to Fullerton School for train- ing will agree that there is a hu- morous side to student teaching. Which one of us can ever forget that first day out there. It was a rather excited group that piled into old "Henry" at 8.45 on the Monday af- ter Thanksgiving and started out. The ride was characterized by talk and laughter, with now and then a little tune to suit the occasion. There aren't many bumps on that road to Fullerton, but that old Ford found everyone that did happen to be there and if you had a good imagination, you could imagine that you were on the "rocky road to Dublin." Before we had been in the truck very long, every girl had tears in her eyes, but not from crying. Oh, no! You had just as well have onion juice in your eyes as have the smoke that that Ford insisted on pouring in on us. After crossing the Harford road, everyone felt that is was almost time to be there, and William verified our conclusions by saying that it would only take a few more minutes. We rounded a curve and some one said: "Oh, there it is! Isn't it pretty?" We all looked out, to see some love- ly green and white buildings, with wonderful grounds. What a proud and pleasant sensation it gave us, to think that we would teach in such a lovely place. William began to laugh and when he could check his merriment, he informed us 'greenies' that that-was the "Maryland School for the Blind." We all chuckled at our own ignorance. Soon we found ourselves on a hill- top which overlooks the whole town of Fullerton, and there stood the school house, a formidable, but nice looking red brick building. We groaned, but all in vain, for we were there and we could not turn back. William let us' out, promisingto re- turn for us at one o'clock. We en- tered the building, first introducing ourselves to the principal and then meeting our teacher. After opening exercises, our teacher said: "Chil- dren, let me introduce you to your' new teachers." My, what a shock to hear yourself called a teacher for the first time. It brought us to our senses and we began to gaze around to get ourselves familiar with our' situation. By the end of the 'morn- ing we had learned some of the children's names and had deter- mined to like our positions, even volunteering to teach on the next day. Oh, that first day of teaching! The children were very good, considering the predicament they found them- selves in, but they must have been interested in becoming acquainted with those specimens of humanity who stood before them as teachers, for after that Hrst day we found that they were just as mischievous as other girls and boys with whom we are acquainted. It is of no use to go into detail about the fun connected with class- room teaching, for everyone knows how funny some of the an- swers which children give really are, and every one is familiar with general classroom humor. ln the fifth grade they had quite a nov- el time for the first week, for one of our Normal boys teaches there, and the children had never before had a "man" teacher, as they called him. On the first days that he taught, one of the little girls curled her hair for his especial benefit and others tried similar stunts, but he refused to be captured, much to the disappointment of all the children concerned. On the day before the Christmas holidays, it was a lively bunch that bade Fullerton good-bye for two weeks. As we pulled away from the school, William stopped the truck and started to back, saying, "Where's Mary?" We all bitt, and said: "Mary who?" "Merry Christmas," and William drove on, greatly amused at having been able to catch all of us'in the trap. We made the song "Tomorrow" ring as we neared the school, for on the morrow we would indeed be happy.. As yet, the truck ride is still a boom for good spirits, especially since we have our new truck. which complies extremely well with Mr. Dunkle's description of it as an "open truck." It really couldn't be much more open. We have to keep in jolly spirits to keep us from think- ing about getting cold, and it really works very well. As I watch that laughing, happy group, I often wonder if any of us could possibly develop into a typi- cal "old maid" school teacher. I'll wager not, will you? ETHEL W. LYNCH. LOGIC. One hot July afternoon a tired and very dusty little colored lad chanced to be passing a reservoir quite some distance from home. The water looked so cool and inviting he could not resist, and a few minutes later found him splashing around to his heart's content. The keeper, upon discovering him rushed up and called out, "Hey, there! Come out of that! Don't you know that people in town have to drink that water?" Sambo dived under again, came up and innocently replied: "Oh, that's all right, suh, I aiu't usin' no soap!" TOWSON 5 AND 10c STORE School Supplies And Novelties, Etc. 404 York Road Towson, Md.

Our Civic Club was organized in the month of November, 1922, in the iifth grade room. It was organized because the children of the nfth grade thought it would help them to be good citizens. The last meeting was held Janu- ary 10. 1923. lt was called to or- der by the President, Hungerford Lalllotte. The minutes were read by the Secretary, Homer Shaffer. The 'h'easurer, Carolyn Greene. report- ed that we had 52.30 in the treas- ury. Then some of the members read a story on how good citizens act at home. Then we decided to become members of the Red Cross, and we paid oneldollar for buttons and a window card, and nfty cents for the subscription for the Red Cross magazine. The meeting then adjourned until January 24th, the date of the next meeting. HUNGERFORD LaMOTTE. CRAFT CLUB NEWS. "The Knave of Hearts, He stole some tarts!" Are you surprised?

Rep- lsentatives from thirty-two schools of Baltimore and vicinity, number- ing 2,208 meet. In the lines thousands tators. Normal the record made by its representa- tives at the meet, which proves that we really can do something in ath- letics. Even those people and teams who did not win points deserve great credit for their whole-hearted, co- operative etfort. Eastern High School won the meet with a total of 38 points. Normal School carrier oc second place, with a score of 24 points, and won the silver cup for the class under 21 years. Western High School came third with 22 points. '. The Junior volley ball team won its nrst game by defeating Randalls- towng score 12-115 but the team was eliminated from further contest by losing its second game to Catons- ville. The Senior team' lost its first, though hard fought game, gith West- ern High School, score 19--14. Mem- bers of teams: Seniors-Rowanetta Allen fcaptainl, V. Carroll, M. Mun- caster, H. Ashleyy E.

Many different events were taking place at the same time, so that it was impossible to watch every group carefully. The general impression of the scene was one of intense ac- tivity, and every where one heard comment on the success of the meet.

HOW T0 TOOT YOUR HORN. ln a few brief paragraphs I will try to unfold to you some of the se- crets of a great musician upon the delicate art of tooting your horn. First, make sure that the horn, mouthpiece, and other appendages are intact and free from dust. Re- move all surplus debris that may have accumulated. This can readily be done by connecting the horn with a vacuum cleaner or by opening tog- gle valve No. K-521 and exhaling forcibly into the mouthpiece. This should be done on the outside of the second story window for best results. Close the toggle valve and take a breath accompanied with a sigh from the shoulders down. Then place the mouthpiece, with the horn attached, to the lips, at the same time smiling, as if pro- nouncing the letter Q. Hold the in- strument iirmly against the mouth and pronounce the word "Schivin- ski." If this does not produce a sat- isfactory tone, you may try some other word of Gaelic origin. Now imagine that x-rays are emanating from your solar plexis and slide the apparatus, known to myself .and other musicians of repute, as No. 492 siphon tube. If no noticeable change is shown, something is evi- dently wrong, and the instrument should be thoroughly washed with a good grade of castile soap and rubbed down with a rough Turkish towel. It is very important to keep all nuts tight and the bobbin free from lint. The valves should be ground evcry thousand miles or the tube will lose compression. With a little persistent practice one will be able to play with a fair legree of credit but it takes lots of experience. E. L. BARTLE. "l see they are making shingles out of cement now." "Then I recall my wish to be a boy again." THE ORIOLE 3 "SHE STOOPS T0 CONQUERX' "I'm sure I grow tiresomef' "Not in thc least, sir. There is nothing I love so much as grave con- versation." ' To hear of the Senior play again might seem to "grow tiresome," but if we stop to think again, we too willsay "Not in the least, sir." On' the night of December 12, 1922, there were many fluttering hearts both behind the scenes and in the audience. Some were saying "I hope it will be good," and others were saying "I hope I won't forget my lines." Both hopes came true because the play was a wonderful success and not one of the cast for- got liis lines. "Such fire, such motion, such eyes, such lips." Thus Marlow de- scribed his lady fair, who stooped to conquer and that impression she gave also to her audience. Hier co- uettish manner would have won the heart of the hardest of men and her reward for her trouble would have pleased the heart of any woman. El- sie Harrington, who played the part of Kate Hardcastle, put her whole self into the play. She acted not in the twentieth century, but in the eighteenth, and the quaint charm of her costumes and manners gave the play a delightful flavor. "Generous man, I didn't know half your merit till now," said Kate when the true Marlow was revealed. Mar- low was such a capricious character, that by the time we knew him as a modest, stammering gentleman, he had changed and was the "bold, for- ward, agreeable Rattle," who in his twin became again the awkward, self conscious lover. This diflicult part was played with splendid spirit by Menaris France. It required long hours of study and training, which found their reward in the applause awarded him on that evening. "As for disappointing them, I should not much mindg but I can't abide to disappoint myself." Thus spoke Tony Lumpkin, the spoilt darl- ing of an adoring mother. In her presence, Tony was all for himself, but in spite of his roguery and mis- chief, he played the good angel, and in the end united the lovers whose path of true love he had beset with many difliculties. Bryce Maxwell played the part of Tony with marked skill and insight. He made the char- acter actually live. Constance Neville and Hastings, lovers, were played by Haze! Wright and Irll Beall. Certainly no two people ever had such a hard time of it as they. But love tri- umphed over all difliculties and in the end they were rewarded for their constancy and honor. Mr. and Mrs. Hardcastle were an honorable and lovable old pair. Both tried to be strict, but both had a weak spotg Mr. Hardcastle in Kate, and Mrs. Hardcastle in Tony. Ruth 'Seeger portrayed the character of an old man very beautifully. She did a fine piece of work, as the part required unusual acting ability. Helen Schouler as Mrs. Hardcastie, added greatly to the humor of the play. The "Inn" scene and the servant scene contributed an atmosphere of joviality and old Englesh cheer. The girls who took those parts acted splendidly. Marlow's father, played by Lin- ford Hartle, and Stingo, played by Louise Covington, were both notable parts. The admirable work of the Craft ilub must be as great a pride to them as it is to the 'Senior Class. The scenery and furnishings which they made were an appropriate set- ting for the play and the skill with which they shifted scenes and man- aged the lights revealed their splen- did ability and co-operation. Their contribution to the success of the Senior Play was no less than that of the actors. Had it not been for the strong coaching the cast had, they would certainly not have come out as they did, on top of their troubles. Trou- ble, trial and tribulation assailed them on every side, but because of the strong backing they had in Mrs. Stapleton, Miss Wells and Ruth Grafton, they pulled together and won. WHY YOUNG MEN COME TO THE NORMAL. The presence of a group of young men at the State Normal School gives the State Board of Education much satisfaction. for it indicates that the public school is again at- tracting men to its service. The purposes which justify public schools in Maryland require that each position in the service be iilled by a carefully trained, and thorough- ly responsible person, and it is the aim of those in authority to secure for all who go into school work, and wh.o demonstrate a capacity to do it well, standing in the community quite as desirable as that held by successful professional people in other iields. It is the policy of the State and County Boards of Maryland to select those who are to be placed in all higher positions from the ranks of teachers in order that administra- tive responsibility shall be i11 the hands of those who have risen in the service. The result of this policy, corn- bined with the fact that matrimony does not interfere with continuous school service in the case of men, land aside from all other considera- tions, will be that a considerable number, and perhaps the majority. of the higher school positions of Maryland will be filled by meng and it is, therefore, a matter of much satisfaction to those who have the responsibility of selecting people to fill these positions to know that there will be in the ranks of school work- ers a group of qualified men from which to naturally many of DR. select those on whom will fall the responsibilities of these important positions.

S. is coming to the front ranks in visual education. This school has used the slide since its inception and, hut recently has ac- quired and installed a motion picture machine. It is the intention of tho authorities of the school to make the management of the motion pic- ture shows, a student project. As a result, shows have been' offered weekly by various student groups.

How many times have you readers been on edge, so to speak, about a wonderful scene in a movie, when something goes wrong with the ma- chine? No doubt all of us have had such an experience, but few of us can control our tempers in such a case. Naturally we blame the oper- ator, and call him all sorts of names possible. He is not to blame, how- ever, for such a mishap. Perhaps the carbons have burned improperly. Again, the film may have had a de- fect in it. Maybe the reel is not winding properly. In fact, anything might happen and still the poor operator is blameless. Yet, he is the one who is always blamed and criticized for it. Remember this, readers, it is easy to criticize, out hard to remedy, and this is true about movies. When the film breaks, don't clap your hands and get impatient. Remember that the movie operator is up above you Working for all he is worth to get the picture going again. THE CRAFT CLUB PLAYS. Would you like to know just what the Craft Club got out of giving "The Knave of Hearts" and "Six Who Pass While the Lentils Boil"? First and foremost, We got a tre- mendous joy in realizing how very generous people are with their thought, and time, and money. We wish to thank Miss Tall for making it possible, through her contingent fund, to receive help from Mrs. Hen- rietta Baker Low-and to thank Mrs. Low for not sparing herself in order that we gain clear cut enun- ciation, pronunciation, voice carry- ing qualities, and interpretation. We also wish to express our warmest ap- preciation to Miss Amberson and the girls who made the tarts. Besides these, others who deserve mention are: Anne Simmons, who enthusias- tically filled a part in the castg the girls who ushered and took tickets, and Gibbs La Motte, who, with his knowledge ,I of paper-mache, ,helped us with stage properties. Other peo- ple interested in our work donated jam for our tarts. Mrs. McCord is one of our members, but while she is not listening we want to say that we could not have got along without her. Having once decided upon the pro- ject of giving a play, it was neces- sary for us to establish certain stand- ards of accomplishment. Seeing "The Book of Job" in the autumn, aided us greatly in this. The pro- duction of the setting for the Senior play, helped us in gaining stage tech- nique. After we had set certain standards to be attained, the selec- tion of the play was the next pro- blem that presented itself. Plays that would give opportunity for free expression and originality in design and setting necessarily guided our selection. This led to the reading and judging of many of the best of modern one-act plays. "The Knave of Hearts" and "Six Who Pass While the Lentils Boil" afforded excellent working up of col- unusual designs in and stage proper- of printing and thc opportunities for or schemes and costume, setting, ties. Knowledge care of the press was obtained through the making of announce- ments, tickets and programs. It is interesting to note that the cast was not a selected group espec- ially talented along the line of art or dramatics. However, it was nec- essary for every member of the group to participate in the work, which fact, led to the discovery of talent otherwise, have remained dormant. Aside from the knowledge of stage craft, costuming, stage presence, and the ability to act, we learned how to work as a unit. The spirit of co-operation and forgetfulness of' self for the good of the or- ganization was the fundamental fac- tor in our success. The Club 'sincerely hopes that it gave to its audience, on Friday, an evening of pleasure and wholesome recreation that typified the joy of creation and accomplishment, which every member of the organization I realized. WHAT THE YOUNG MEN OF THE M. S. N. S. BELIEVE. "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link," and so it is with the young men of the Maryland State Normal School. Every one assumes the responsibility of making the weakest the strongest. Perhaps, ex- pressed in words, this is our creed: Help the other fellow, Be clean in mind, speech, and bodyg "Seek opportunities rather than wait for themg be trustworthy, straight- forward and honest in all things and at all times, invest your knocks as you would invest a five dollar bill. Professionally, we believe, we have "the biggest job in the world", we are going with full steam aheadg we are enthusiastic 'over our jobg we are working for the good of others and not for ourselves, we are choos- ing the good and rejecting the bad, can convert thoughtless minds we into busy think-shops, we are aim- ing high at every target, we can make a bouquet out of every brick, and above all. we mean to be sin- cere and honest with our co-workers and in all our undertakings. LINFORD HARTLE. Let me give you a piece of advice. What's the matter with it? LIBRARY MAGAZINES. While making a study of maga- zines recently, several sections have discovered a wealth of valuable ma- terial that for many months failed to attract their interest. In order that no other section make the mis- jtake of leaving the magazine shelves unexplored, the following classifica- tion has been made. For current events all the infor- mation you will desire may be found in: American Review of Reviews, Current Events, Current History, Independent, Literary Digest, Out- look, and World's Work. In searching for the newest and on prob- issues of most progressive thought lems of sociology and the the day, go to the Nation, the New Republic, and the Survey. The modern theories of education and the results of research are treat- ed in: The Journals of Educational Method, Educational' Psychology, Educational Research, Geography, Hlome Economics, Rural Education, and of the National Education As- sociationg in the Elementary School Journal, School and Society, Visual Education, and Vacational Educa- tion. The practical working out of ele- mentary school problems and devices are given in the Normal Instructor, Popular Educator, and Primary Ed- ucation. In the field of modern literature, giving the best of contemporary poetry, essays, and stories, we have the Atlantlc' Monthly, Century, Scribner's and Harpers. - The various departments are rep- resented as follows: Physical Education - Mind and Body. Industrial Arts-Industrial Arts Magazine, Arts and Decoration. Home Economics - Journal of Home Economics, Good Housekeep- ing, Good Furniture, Arts and Decor- ation. Music-Etude, Musical America, School Music. History-Historical Outlook. Other magazines, such as Bird- Lore, Nature Study Review, School IArts, and Country Gentleman are re- 'ceived but have not been classiiied, for want of spaceg The Saturday Evening Post and Life, which adds a spice of humor to the collection, are received as gifts. i C.

Now that the winter days are drawing to a close, our blood is be- ing filled with a desire to trot out on the field with a bat, mit or ball, or with whatever we need for the sport we are interested in, so it is quite natural to hear someone ask: "Have you seen anything of my glove, or I wonder what could have happened to my racquet?" The outlook for the spring sports here is quite promising because of the fact that our last year's stars are still here, together with many promising Juniors, who came in the fall. 'We expect to surprise the base- ball fans around Towson by produc- ing one of those teams consisting of players like "Jack Bentley" and "Babe Ruth." Our object is to have the boys of '23 and '24 put dear old "Normal" on the map. The track team expects to add honors to the school. Those long legs that can be seen moving around are not to be looked upon with care- less concern, for the power of loco- motion which lie behind those limbs will be the means of some opponent going away with the booby prize. Last, but by no means the least, is the great fight which we put forth on the tennis courts. Last year, oiv- ing to the small number that played tennis, we only had a handicap match but this year with a tennis tourna- ment stariug us in the face, we ex- pect to have some holder of a world title spring forth from it. WILLIAM HULL. SIGMA ALPHA FRATERNITY. The Sigma Alpha Fraternity adopts for its purpose the cultivating of so- cial and fraternal spiritg raising the standard of scholarship: and pro- moting the manly, mental and moral faculties among the men students of the Maryland State Normal School. 'We did not organize our fraternity as soon as the idea came to usg in- stead we began a careful study and a thorough search for material con- cerning fraternities. For one year and a half this search continued. During this time we had representa- tives come to us from fraternal or- ganizations in and around Baltimore, XVe sent letters to colleges outside the State. gathering information from all sources. We are very grateful to the mem- bers of the Theti Phi Fraternity of Baltimore City Collr-gt-, for giving us ideas about their organization. and also grateful to Mr. Hilligiest, Registrar of the University of Mary- land, for giving us the technicalities of organization. We want besides. to express our appreciation to Mr. Biedler, who was so instrumental in helping us with the details. I To help further our purpose, we,i ,the charter members, have asked seven Juniors to join us. We feel that these boys will co-operate with us so that we can make the Sigma, Alpha Fraternity an asset to thei Maryland State Normal School. We further feel that this responsible group will do their best to make the spirit of the school live on in them in the years to come. Our motto is, "It is only the great heart.- ed who can be true friends. The mean, the cowardly, can never know what true friendship means." The fraternity has been placed under the guidance of an able Presi- dent, William C. Hull, with Bryce E. Maxwell as his assistant. Joseph M. Simonds holds the next important officeg that of secretary-treasurer. The charter members are: Wil- liam C. Hull, Bryce E. Maxwell, Menaris France, Linford Hartle, Jo- seph Simonds and Ernest Bartles. The invitation members are: Har-i Old Moser, Charles Renn, Hugh Ford. J. Owen Thomas, Samuel Troupe, George Houck, John Pryor, and Pauli Hoffmasrer. E 1 1 WHY MUSIC? 1 -1- . "Out of the heart are the issues of! life." "Every human feeling regis- ters itself in the heart beat." 4 In our normal state we live mosti of our life under the direction of cer-I tai11 of our moods and emotions. To remain normal. we must express our emotions. Unrestrained we will give to our feelings some form of vocal utterance. It may be the shout of victory, the prayer of hope, or the song of joy. It may be the cry of pain, the voice of fear, or the wail of despair. lt was out of these and other feelings, mild or intense, that human voice and language were born. It was from the urge of such' feelings that human voice and lan- guage liave been developed. From them have come a medium for hu- man expression as vital and as per-, manent as human life itself. In form, these vocal expressions were first simple and crude, but always easily uttered and universally under- stood because they were of the heart and to the heart. As we learned to combine sounds, vary and articulate hem, our speech took on beauty and became a medium pleasing to the hearing sense. lt became music-al. i. e., modulated in sound: and poetic, i. e, pulsated into meter rhythm and phrase. Suppress these vocal utter- ances and many of the human vir- tues and helpful human relations would cease and the race would again become savage and dumb. This form of emotional expression is so common, its values are often for- gotten. lt is the first expression of the infant child, and the tender heart of motherhood answers back i I in a crooning voice of comfort and love. This is the beginning of speech in the new-born member of the human family. Throughout childhood and youth, this new mem- ber continues to unfold its hearing sense and to acquire a vocal utter- ance, first from its natural mother and then from the mother-goose lilts and lullabies and finally from Old Mother Nature and all her people and things. This is speech. This is language. This is music. They are all from the same source and for a similar purposeg namely, a medium through which to receive and hand on social experience. They have their beginning and their end in the eternal throb of human' de- sires. Omit. this voca1 expression and there is taken away a heritage as old as the race itself. By its development, social life is enriched and human thoughts and aims are unified. Poetic form of language is older than is prose, and musical ex- pression more ancient than is intel- lectual speech. The heart throb of feeling makes the voice sing, simple and crude or more complex and beau- tiful, according to what has been received through experience and cul- ture. Iu music, vocal expression has been standardized, beautified, and popularized: standardized by giving it definite form in tone and meterg beautified it melody and harmonic expressiong popularized by making it possible for the group to perform it ensemble. Because of their age and permanency, music and language are the essentials and touch life at- more points than do any of the other subjects. We may forget our math- :natics and civics, but the mother tongue and mother song remain with us. A race and a people take on a music and speech heritage as dis- tinct and as vital as is the binding tie of racial blood. We may ask, why music? The answer, is with- in ourselves. It is in the beat of our pulse. It is in the rhythm of our breathing. It is in our voice and language. It is in all our so- cial, patriotic, and religious impulses. THOMAS L. GIBSON, State Supervisor of Music. Lines written by an Alumna after the 1922 reunion.

THE. .ORIOLE - A Q g 7 THE BEST DAY OF ALL. Ask some one at Normal which day of all the year they liked best and I'1l 'wager that nine out of ten will answer, Oh, don't you remem- ber the day the County Superinten- dents and the County Boards of Ed- ucation came to visit us? I think that was the nicest day of all." For the benefit of those of our readers not present, let me tell you brieiiy what we did on that day. First of all, I will tell you a secret. We have more than two psychologists at the Normal School. You have heard the old proverb, "The way to the heart is through the stomach." We believe in it. so first of all we sent our guests to lunch in Newell Hall, and although I was not there, I am sure they had an excellent lunch. It took them long enough. anyway. Vlfe waited patiently to say our little speeches and sing our songs and we gave them a warm re- ception when they at last joined us. All the students from each County sat together and watched with eager eyes to see when their own Superin- tendent and his helpers should come in. Such clapping as they did do. tPsychology again. "Every minute. in every way, we made them like us better and better."l And they meant it, too. Yvhispers would come from every side. "Oh. here he comes!" "Oh, there is Mr. Fogle!" or "Ours hasn't come yet!" "See Mr. Robinson laughing!" etc. After they had all arrived we sang "Maryland, My Maryland," and a few of us proceeded to tell this audience in rapid tire one-minute talks, some of the things we are do- ing at Normal, and some of the ways in which we would like to have their help. After these speeches, Mr. Cook gave us a very short, interesting talk and Miss Tall told them what had been planned for their further enter- tainment. We then saluted the Hag honor of Mr. Cook and sang the Star Spangled Banner. Following out Miss Tall's direc- tions, the visitors from each Countv joined the students from their County, and were taken care of as long as they wished to remain. I 'wuld like to tell you the story of that afternoon, but it would take too much time and space to relate the various happenings. Many stayed to see the basket ball game. I can only say that if our guests en- joyed the afternoon as much as every one of our boys and girls did, they will certainly come again. RUTH COLE. An advertisement on a downtown jewelry Store: "We sell watches for women of unusual shape and perfec- tion of movement." I BOYS-AN ASSET T0 M. s. N. S. For many years prior to the fall of 1921, the Maryland State Normal School did not boast of any consid- erable number of men students. here was a reason for this failure of high school boys to enter the teaching profession, but the reason was analyzed and overcome, and in September, 1921, fifteen sturdy, Yeager boys registered at the school. I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I 1 During the spring of 1921, the workers of the Increased Enrollment Campaign had talked to Senior Classes in nearly every Maryland high school, and invited them to be-. 'come students at Normal. They in- vited girls and boys alike, and of- fered girls and boys alike the State's new program of a reasonable educa- tion, with a respectable salary scale awaiting them as trained teachers. In answer to this generous invita- tion, the boys came, We're still here, and enthusiastic over our choice. The fall of 1922 brought more boys, there hcinggtwenty-three in he Junior Class. Today we stand thirty-four in all,-a worthy group. And this is not a boy's praise of his fellows, it's just a fact. VVe've brought to Normal, boys' athletic teams, and this has resulted in an organized Athletic Association. he teams entertain and furnish sport for all, as well as promoting loyalty and school spirit. The Ath- letic Association backs the teams and makes athletics possible through its financial backing. The "gym" dormitory, formerly a girls' gymnasium, is now a place of interest to visitors and to ourselves, as it provides living quarters for the twenty-four boys who live at the school. And the boys are positive quanti- ties in academic lines as well as Z1 the other school activities. Four if our number appeared on the Regis- trar's Scholarship List for tl1e fall term of 1922. So. after giving you this glimpse of ourselves, the boys of Normal, I I return to my former assertion-I we're a worthy group. ' MAXWELL R. SACRA, '23, were social games in the Alumnae Rooms for those who could not dance. For every one there were four fortune tellers, who could tell you of the dim future and the re- mote past. These fortune tellers were the hit of the evening, and many people were disappointed be- cause they could not tell fortunes fast enough to get around to every' one. Time passes as on wings when one is enjoying himself and no one could realize that the orchestra was actu- ally playing "Good Night Ladies" because it seemed as if the dancing had just begun. After the last waltz had been played the halls rang with this sentiment, voiced alike bv the visitors, the girls and boys of the Class of '23, "Many cheers and thanks to Miss Tall!" ' We have met, ' Go now and forget If you can. J. M. S., '23. THE NORMAL SYNCOPATORS. Thomas J. Owen. Groups of girls wander toward the Administration Building. Their es- corts await titem at the door of the Auditorium. It is Friday night, that Friday night that comes twice a month. Of course, the thing that makes a dance worth while is the Orches- tra, and the M. S. N. S. has some jazzy orchestra. For those who are unacquainted with this little group of "Happy Musicians," I shall name them. Those wicked traps, which make you have a funny feeling all over, are managed by Menaris France. Under the chin of J. Owen Thomas rests that mellow violin which makes itself so well beloved in a slow, dreamy waltz, Ernest Bartles makes eyes, and sometimes faces, over thc horn of his trombone when it utters a discordant note. Last, but not least, comes that won- derful little "Ivory Tickler," Bryce Maxwell. These four are known by the well deserved name of Normal Syncopators. During the week a visitor might xenter the Alumni room and see this group of fellows, one perhaps in a gym suit and the others in their COME, LET Us BE JOYFULI tshirt sleeves.

Is there anything a person likes better than eating? If so, then that particular person is suffering from some form cf chronic disease, and would do well to consult a doctor. Very often students at Normal Schools are called upon to write about the thing they most enjoy. Al- ways, some will choose athletics, some will choose sleeping, and some will choose readingg but very sel- dom do any of them choose what they know in their own heart and stomach they most enjoy. For my part I see no reason Why people should not choose eating. Eating is essential, it is a joy, it is soothing, satisfying, and delightful. If it is not an instinct, then it is a very refreshing habit that is culti- vated extensively. Ever since man has existed he has had the friendship of his appetite. A person's appetite controls his work to a great extent. If it were not for eating, chow ,- many people would work? Work is the essence of health, therefore, is not a man's appetite his friend? Since our appetittes are such in- teresting friends, why shouldn't we enjoy and like them? I assure you I like my appetite, and the only thing I like better than pleasing it, is being its friend. During my Christmas vacation we became very intimate, and the pres- ent which it received, was the most satisfying part of my vacation. They say that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, that no person is well unless he is hun- gry, and that no person is hungry unless he is healthy. Whether I was hungry or healthy or sick, I do not know, but I am positive that during my vacation, the thing which I enjoyed most, was, eating until I satisfied my stomach's desire. ALVEY G. HAMMOND. FINE ARTS. The students of the Maryland i State Normal School are exceeding-' ly fortunate in having one so com- petent as Miss Snyder at the head of the department of fine arts. We are also blessed by the accessibility of material of artistic value. Balti- more and vicinity abound in places of interest to all students of fine arts. That thiss has been appreciated is shown by the large crowds which go, each Saturday. to VValters and to Peabody. Our course here is divided into two branchesg a course in technique and a course in art appreciation. Our time is limited, yet we cover the principles of design, color and drawing. Vile learn to do simple work with the pencil. to use pen and ink efliciently, and to paint with wa- ter colors and other materials. In the appreciation branch of the course we have read much material and made many reports upon art, artists and their work. We receive practical applications. sort of get a dose of the real stuff, in our trips to Walters Art Gallery and to the Gal- lery of the Peabody Conservatory. At these two places we witness many of the masterpieces of the famous artists of all times. At Peabody we witnessed the modernistic tendencies and at Walters we saw the work of past masters. The object of the course is to pro- mote the sense of the beautiful in the school and community. We hope that the ideas started here will grow into tastefully arranged school rooms and desirable neighborhoods. CHARLES RENN. WE WONDER Why some Normal girls go to St. John's over week-ends, when Shep- pard-Pratt is so much nearer? Why Jenny Renn is always want- 'ng to dance? Why Maxwell didn't go to Hagers- town? Wyhy we don't get a ten day va- cation? Why L. Moore thinks Wilson's ad- ministration so successful? Why "a few" of the Normal girls don't erect a dormitory for St. John's students at Normal? Why we don't patronize those who patronize us? If any body ever went to the post office to attend the graduation exer- cises of a correspondence school? . Why Kirby is interested in wheel- wrighting, Hubs being his specialty? Why Pee-Wee pulls in so late Tuesday nights? Who is the "Lovin' Sam" of Nor- mal?

Seeing ourselves as others see us is generally a thing to be found in memory books, but the faculty has found it necessary for us to credit ourselves with what we think we are worth. It wouldn't be fair for us to give the final de- cision, as we would all probably re- ceive a very high mark. so to check up on us our critic teacher possesses a copy of the score card and judg- ment is rendered from the compari- son of the two copies. The phase of practice teaching that we should be marked high on. if the amount of time and hard work is taken into consideration, is the giving of standardized tests. What is done for us, we in turn Iearn to do for our pupils. The rural prac- tice teachers have made and tabu- lated the results of the standard tests which they administered in spelling, composition, reading, and arithmeticg and have them in such fine shape, that you can tell by sim- ply looking at the charts which have been prepared. How every grade in every school ranks in every subject tested. Did you ask if it was hard work? Yes, it was, but it was worth while, for it not only gave us experience in testing. but the results of these tests revealed to us just where our classes were weak and where they were strong and helped us to decide what points needed to be emphasized in our re- spective grades. If our County Su- 'perintendents should ask us next year if we knew how to give and score standardized tests wel could say, yes, thanks to Mr. Dunkle, we do. LINFORD HARTLE. DID EERCULES KNOW THIS? The mind and body are mutually dependent. How do I know? By my course in hygiene I have learned that the body depends on the ner- vous system to govern and regulate it. By psychology I have learned themind governs the body, and that no mind exists without a body. By Physical Education I have learned a strong body makes a better mind, and that a good mind lis useless without a healthy, strong body as a foundation. As further proof of how dependent mind and body are upon each other, take the case of the Seniors land Juniorsj, who attend- ed the Senior dance. They came straggling in to breakfast the next morning rubbing their eyes like so many Bo-Peeps. If the next day had not been Saturday many thefts would have been committed, said thefts be- ing the stealing of catnaps during classes. Hercules had to learn these things by trial and error. Perhaps he never learned them. Pestalozzi, we know .believed it because he said: "Edu- lcate the mind. heart, and hand." We believe in it, as exemplified by our interesting course in hygiene, the practice of that course in games and athletic training, and last of all in our Scout course. ROBERT WRIGHT.

HOW WE DO IT. Mount Vernon. "Give the other fellow a chance," That was what we had for a motto when we played Mount Vernon Col- lege, January 19, 1923. The Nor- mal boys were playing right up ao the notch. The pass work ,cgi both teams was excellent, but our boys had their "shooting eyes" with them and of course they won out. At the end of the first half the score was 23 to 8, in favor of Normal, so the second team was put in bodily for a little practice. The second team, however, was not able to hold the visitors, so a few minutes before time was called the first team was put back in to check the spurt of the Collegians. The work of the second team, though not measuring up to the first, was very good and showed good promise for next year. Greenfeld ...... F. ........ . Hartle Cooper ......,. F.. . . . .

Philadelphia Business College. Those who missed the game on January 20th, -1923, with Philadel- phia Business College, missed a wou- derful game of basketball, perhaps cal door. The Normal boys, fresh from their victory with Mount Ver- non, met in this team, a foe worthy of their best efforts. The game started with a snap and it was easy to be seen that it would be a fast game. In the first half our boys completely ran away with the Phila- delphia boys, displaying a more re- markable brand of pass-work and team-work, combined with an ac,- curate eye for the basket, than they have displayed thus far this year. The basket seemed to act as a mag- net for a ball tossed by our boys, and the first half ended with a score of 37 to 8. In the second half, our boys slowed up a little, and this, together with several substitutes, broke up the team play. The Philadelphia team put in a new guard, named Ross. This new man was a wonder and seemed to be the life of the whole team. The game would probably been closer if he had in the first of the game.

Poor passes and no "shooting eye" marked the whole game. If they had been up to form, the final score would have been a great deal different, because a quotation from the Hagerstown paper reads: "The visitors had played a number of fast teams this season and their defeat at the hands of the locals came not only as surprise to their followers, but to the local fans as well." That is the only bright spot in the whole trip. The only thing we can do is to wish for better luck next time. Steele .... .... F .. . . . . . Hlartle Shupp, I. . . . . . . .

This is a familiar slogan among Normal School students, and as a result, popular opinion voted that "Back Home And Broke," with Thomas Meighan in the leading role was the best picture so far this year. Thomas Meighan won first place in the "Most Handsome Man Con! test," held by the Picture Play mag- azine. This was one reason, per- faps, why his picture was given, but the boys like the manly Tom-and Lila Lee. The plot of the picture was very simple,-one that is used more of- ten than any other, the story of the struggle of a young man for success after he and his mother are left des- titute when their supposedly rich father and husband dies penniless. Aggie Twoddle, the town gossip, gave us a hearty laugh, and relieved some of the tense situations. Lila. Lee, as leading woman, was Very sweet and acted her part with a strength that supported Thomas Meighan very well. If the pictures held at our school in the future are as good as "Back Home and Broke," our time and money will not be wasted if we at- tend them. HERMETICALLY SEALED.

When the boys decided to issue a number of The Oriole, their first thought was to appoint somebody to interview Miss Tall and get her ex- pression on several important ques- tions. Wghat do you suppose she said? Do men have a place at the Mary- land State Normal School? "I am a. firm believer that the elementary schools need men teach- ers as well as women. When there were no men at the Normal School, it is probable that it was because it was not made clear to the high school students by their advisors that they might possibly possess a definite aptitude for teaching and yet have little special aptitude in any other Held. The advisors of the boys have in the past, pitiably ignored the field of education-"they did not make the boys see that this vocation might lead to their highest fulfillment in life. I would not advise all boys to become teachers, for they are not all fitted to be teachers. Low salaries' in the past have kept them out of the profession, but now teaching is main- taining a higher standard, possibly higher than the industrial or com- mercial vocations. Positions at the top will be held by men for many years to come. The State Superin- tendent, at one of our recent assem- blies, made the statement that five big educational positions in the State must be filled soon. He said that few forward-looking men had pre- pared for the positions so he would probably have to go out of the State to secure qualiiied men. High school boys, this is a challenge to you!" "For several years prior to 1921, there were no boys at Normal School. Last year seventeen enrolled. This was a tremendous growth all at The credit may be laid at the of the Department of Educa- for their progressive and com- prehensive program. In addition to this, there was a drive made by the Normal School staff, speaking be- fore high school students through- out the State. Then, too, wonderful co-operation was shown by the high school Principals, and after all they are the biggest factors in influencing the boy. The two State High School Supervisors were keenly interested, and in a large measure, we owe our increased enrollment to them. The men alumni did their share for they ,had long deplored the absence of men in the student body. In Sep- tember, 1922, the enrollment had increased from seventeen to thirty- six." "Perhaps the fact that one may receive two years college credit practically free of charge, is a big factor in influencing the boys. No tuition whatever is charged. Board, once. door tion, laundry and' room cazr be had for one hundred dollars ai year. This: is: a trem-endouss boost to: any' boy' in helping him realize his ideal-to. know that he can. get credit for two years toward his ocllege degree at' so little- expense. Penhaps it was a- photograph of! the Norma1,. hung on the assembly hall' walls of the high schools-, and then. again, it might have been our movie film, "The Call' of the Hour."' Perhaps it was a hitt or miss choicex but whatever it was, here they are, thirty-six strong, working side- by side with four- hun-- dred and seventy women and hold- ing their- own."' What contributions have- the menu students brought to the school? "Their interest in athletics 'ha-sn rganizedl the student body- into an Athletic Association, developingg right standards, right enthusiasm, and right influences for the school. I thnrk I am right in making this- statement, for I believe that there has been no charge of non-sports-- marrshipi brought against us in play-. ing our games. The scholarship standard has not been sub-ordinated to athletics because some of the leading and most skillful soccer and basket ball players' are honor stu- dents in academic' and professional studies. The character of the pro- fessional curriculum is such that it kills off the unworthy members and practically no man student who has withdrawn is a loss to the school, for eventually these .weaker souls would have shown that their strong- est aptitude did not lie in becoming a teacher. Perhaps the spirit of the present group can best be exempli- fied by the spirit in which they have undertaken the organization of the Sigma Alpha fraternity. They didn't organize just becaause they wanted a secret societyg it took them one and a half years of careful study, and after securing advice from the State as well as National fraternities, they put the guidance of the organi- zation into the hands of two former fraternity leaders of the University of Maryland. They carefully thought out a creed and made a ritual with the highest ideals in mind. It might have been better for the men not to have had a fraternity, since they found none here when they came, but they went about it with such intelligence, such respect for making a contribution to the morale of the school, such strong faith and ability to encourage liner men to come into the profession, that this fraternity cannot do harm, but good, if they can drop the mantle on the shoulders of those coming after them. In spite of the diverting ef- fects of athletics, dining room ser- vice, orchestra, social life, two of the Senior men are outstanding hon- or students in their work.

"VVhat are the possibilities for better living quarters for the boys?" "The housing conditions for men are not satisfactory, but the boys have been good sports about it and through their own efforts and the efforts of the Alumni Association, I think they will iniiuence the next Legislature in making a dormitory appropriation. The old gym ffar im being a. 'andard onel, has been converted into a barracks for the men and though they are living in simplest style, they have organized their life into a fairly satisfactory regimem, in spite of the inconveni- ences. We believe that the thirty- six men now in attendance will be able to convince thirty-six others that the experience at the Normal School will enrich their lives and satisfy their ambitions to such a de- gree that they will never forget the time spent here." "If our prophesy is borne out, the enrollment next year will be so great and the need for a dormitory will be so insistent that there will be no question in the minds of the people and their representatives or the Legislature of 1924.

Immedi- ately an orchestra springs into life l and you are listening to music in a dance hall one thousand miles away. Slowly the dial revolves and we pass rapidly through spaace to At- lanta, where flowers are blooming, and spring seems to have been brought to you ahead of time, as you listen to the "Song of the Mock- ing Bird," played by the W.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, Lend me your ears, I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him, 'Wie good that men do live after them. These were the famous words of Mark Antony at the funeral of Cae- sar. But today I came not to bury Caesar or to praise him, but to take an imaginaary trip through Freder- ick County, because the history of a place, whether good or bad, lives af- ter it. Just lend me your ears and imagination. Imagine yourselves in the metrop- olis of Baltimore, going west through Catonsville, on the Freder- ick road, for 45 miles till you come to the City of Frederick, with its long, beautiful streets, which cross at right angles. Along the streets are spacious homes, made from Wood, brick and stone, with lawns which especially beautify them. The stores are large and plentiful, with plenty of windows for displaying wares. One chief interest of West Patrick street is the 351,000,000 hotel, which has been opened. Another feature of the City is the great number of banks, which denote the great wealth of the City. The first historical place of inter- est is the Court House, which was built in 1861. In the Circuit Court room is a bronze tablet, bearing the names of twelve judges who were the first to repudiate the British Stamp Act, showing that Frederick County had a part in the Revolution- ary War. Our next stop will take us one mile North of Frederick, to Rose Hill Manor. Here is where the first Governor of Maryland resided until his death in 1819. The Manor is large and the house is beautifully situated among green fields and sur- rounded by trees. This old mansion is now used as a place where trav- elers may stop for refreshment of mind and body. Barbara Frietchie, who has caused talk and discussion lived on West Patrick street. Whittier, in his poem on Barbara Frietchie, made Frederick County, Frederick City and Barbara Frietf-hie famous. The incident of Mrs, Frietchie's actually waving the flag at Stonewall Jack- son, has been proved. by a Mr. Jeni- fer. of Hopkins, as untrue, neverthe- less the sentiment of the poem is very beautiful. The first few lines fire: Up from the meadows rich with corn Clear in the cool September morn The clusterefl spires of Frederick stand Green walled by the hills of Mary- land. About thirteen miles from Freder- ick lies the Catocin Furnace. Here is where cannon and cannon ball were made during the Revolutionary War and operated afterwards for some years. This furnace was first run by Governor Johnson and his: brothers, who made a success of it,. but the reason it closed was on ac- count of the lack of ore. Now, near the site of the furnace, is a number camps, where barrel staves are made. On returning to Frederick we shall visit Mt. Olivet Cemetery, and view the monument of Francis Scott Key, the author of the Star Spangled Ban- ner. No wonder that Frederick is proud of that monument, when one of her sons was the author of that National air, which is honored by the whole world. Thus we see that the County of Frederick played its part in past his- tory and has honored the State by some of the most brilliant men of Maryland, as, for ,example, Roger Brooke Taney. His early life, as a lawyer, began in Frederick. He was one of the most brilliant men ever produced from Maryland. His worth is shown by General Jackson, when he appointed him Attorney General of Maryland, and later made him Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, during which time his decision on the Dred Scott case was given. This defined the right of negroes on the question of suffrage. Since I have used the theory of Herodotus in trying to make this talk interesting instead of sticking to bare historical facts, I leave with you these few examples of Frederick County's history, upon which you may meditate if you wish. IRLL BEALL. Md. State Normal School, Towson, Md. Feb. 15, 1923. My dear Mr. --: I was asked by Miss Tall to write to your son on what I thought of Normal Sqbool, since this is my sec- ond year here. Not knowing your son's name I will ask you to give this to him after reading it yourself. I should say we do have boys here. and when anybody steps on our campus they are not long finding it out, even if we are not so many in number! There are so many things about which to write that I hardly know which one to start on. In the first place, this Normal School has col- legiate rating with any college of Maryland and with Columbia Univer- sity. This fact, with the low expenses, is what caused me to make up my mind to come to this school. After teaching two years, I expect to go to the University of 'Maryland to get my degree. From your l'ather's letter I under- stand that you are interested in ath- letics.. The influence of the athletics' that the boys have started here has. reached far and wide. Our season. in soccer has been very successful. We played- all the surrounding high schools, preparatory schools audi sev- eral colleges. Our basket ball' season is ngow' in. full swing. This coming Saturday night we are playing one- of our greatest rivals, the Maryland' School for the Mutes. In the boys" issue of the "Oriole" you will find a list of the different schools that we play. Though We are only thirty-four in number, the boys stand at the helm in the extra school activities, for in- stance, in the orchestra, we have eight boys, compared with three girls. Besides this orchestra, we have an orchestra called "Normal Syncopatorsj' composed of four boys, who play for many of our dances. The boys have many organizations in the school which you will find out when you read the boys issue of the "Oriole" The organization in which we are most interested, is the "Sigma Alpha Fraternity," which was started this year I have not written very much about the academic life here, be- cause I thought that you wanted to hear of our athletic life, as most boys dog but let me tell you that the academic side is always consid- ered before the athletics. I certainly wish that you could pay us a visit and then you could tind out for yourself just what Nor- mal School Iife is like, the type of boys that come here and the type that they expect. Sincerely yours, WILLIAM HULL. ANNOUNCEMENTS. The Camp Fire Girls hope to pre- sent the moving picture "Oliver Twist," to the Normal School some time in March. It is a picture worth seeing!

Her trip-to thefd-ifferent Nor- mail Schooisfin the' West was sug- gestedg' so"she'willingly gave us this very interesting material for the ar- ticle. rv- ' The nrst school visited by Miss Tall was the Cleveland School of Ed- ucation.- In addition to thetwo year Normal course offered at this school, there is-a Senior -College Courserof two,-years,--for the Bachelor pfaArts Degree.and B. S. Degree offered at Western! Reserve University. Dr. Ambrose Suhrie is- Dean gof the School-of Education, which isga girl's school. A :very splendid Student Government Organization exists here. -Indeed, so capableis it that the members of the faculty occasion- ally leave in a body, placing the stu- dents in charge from' morninguntil evening. f: . ' - -:The building is old and lacks many of the modern improvements, and much of the beauty found in the nne, 'new type of Normal School. This made Miss Tall think, and should also make usthink, that, ifna build- ing counts, then the student body at M. S. -N. S. ought to do ideal work. While at this school our princi- pal, together with the National Coun- cil of Normal School principals, was entertained at' a luncheon and had the pleasure of--hearing "rapid tire" short talks upon school activities given by the different students. She -said that these talks made her think of the talks given at our school the day it was visited by the County Su- perintendents and County Boards of Education, which fact proves to us that she- always has M. S. N. S. on 'her mind, where'er she may go. Our Honorary member of the,Jun- ior Class next travaeled from Cleve- land to Detroit, where she visited the Detroit Teachers' ,College Dr. S. A. Courtis, of whom we have frequently heard, is Dean of this school. Here the practice work differs from ours. In the first year for nine weeks the students participate in regular school work, known as tasks, such as mark- ing rolls, graphing the results of tests, keeping track of library rec- ords and making out 1'eport cards. -In--the second year nfteen hours, for, eighteen weeks is' the required amount of practice work. The stu- dent-'teaqhers practice in both the After the students receive their di- plomas, they go out to teach in the City, under the direction-of Supervis- ors. If successful, at the close of this supervised or cadet teaching, as it is called, 'the students receive a. Life Certificate. The Supervisors of cadet-teaching are: members of the staff of the Teachers' College. f Iiithis sqhool. the same as i-n ours, there are Student Government pro- blems. The problems they are con- cerned with are those in regardfto the -giving of honorsf At present they allow their students" to belong tdione club only. Miss Tall told the students of our 'interest in develop- ing an Achievement Chart. After' leaving Detroit, Miss Tall traveled to Indiana, Pennsylvaania. There she visited the Pennsylvania Normal School, which institution is very much like our own. 'Slie lived two days in the dormitory, and while there ate in the dining roomgwith seven hundred students. The tables were presided over by the insguctors and seniors., There were tables for the underweights , and overweights, at which the nurses satg and tables for the boys and girls in athletic I training-the team players. A glass case found in the hallway. exhibiting the athletic awards. such as four foot-balls, four soccer balls and four silver cups, proves the in- terest of the student body in ath- letics. On Sunday evening our Principal attended the Vesper Service. All. students are compelled to attend this service. The Glee Club had seats on the platform throughout the entire evening, and took the leading part in the service. The atmosphere in the school was very charming and the courtesy of: the instructors was most pleasing during our principal's visit. Practice work is carried on by the . 'idents in the first six grades of the elementary school, as. well as in the Junior High School. In addi- tion to these nine grades, across from the Normal School, is a country graded school, where practice teach- ing is carried on through the co-bper- ation of the County Superintendent, the Principal and Dr. Keith, the pres- ident of the Normal School Dr. Keith has engaged well trained teachers from as far West as Iowa, and as far South as Texas to staff the school. He expects one thousand students at his -summer session: Mr S. N. S. is afraid she can not compete with Pennsylvania Normal in the matter of numbers for Summer Session, but ,why can she not compete next year with the seven hundred students now enrolled at the.Pennsylvania Nor- : mal? . Leaving Indiana about S o'clock in the evening, Miss Tall started on her homeward journey. VVhile com- ing over. the hills to Blairsville Junction, she passed the blazing chimneys of the picturesque coke ovens, now fast disappearing from the coal industry. Like camp fires, they held her fascinated and made her understand somewhat better the life of that industrial part of the country which is q.uite -different from our own, here in Eastern Maryland. NAOMI HARSH, Jr. II. t I A MESSAGE TO THE JUNIORS. Show your spirit Juniors! We are members of the largest Junior Class ever at M. S. N. S. and are be- ing carefully watched, for great .things are expected of us. Let us Inot disappoint those who are watch- ing us with an ever critical 'and ob- serving eye. Each year more is ex- pected of every Junior Class so that lwe muststrive faithfully with a iirm determination in order to reach the :goal that the Seniors have uncon- 'sciously placed before us. This goal 'can only be reached by believing, as Patrick Henry did, "United we stand, divided we fall." We have encountered many diiii- culties during the year, but through 'the kindly interest and trust of our 'faculty adviser, Miss Tall, we have been greatly helped. Our-motto, "To be, rather than to seem," gives us still another cause Ito aspire, for the real thing that counts is what we are, and what we seem to be, loses out when the day of final judgment comes. There is the old saying "that you can fool ,some of the people all of the time. and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time." Therefore we must not seem to be, we must not deceive, we must be what we really should be for others' sake and for our own, so that we may have the finer feeling of satisfaction when the curtain falls on our nnal exit at M.

UQUINOY ADAMS SAWYER." A nine reel feature picture was given by the History Club on Tues- day, February 27. The History Club received the proceeds from the en- tertainment. The cghief characters of "Quincy Adams Sawyer" were John Bowers and Blanche Sweet, who are well known among movie fans. The story deals with the experi- ences and adventures of a young lawyer in an isolated little village where he has been sent to protect a. widow's property from a dishonest notary public. The young man boards with the widow and while there her daughter falls in love with him. Hle refuses to take her serious- ly and she seeks revenge. In this she is aided by a crook who wishes to marry her for her money. When the girl whom Sawyer loves is cross- ing the river in a ferry, the cable is cut. She is rescued by Sawyer at the edge of a waterfall. The rescue forms the climax. The plot of the story as a whole was good, but the exciting river ,scenes are becoming too frequent. The number of movie goers was not large because of pending exam- inations, but when these are over we believe that a large number of students will attend the good pic- tures we are having.

Synopsis: Burke Hammond, a young New York business man is spending his vacation in South America. He is forced to leave his hotel, as the money he was to re- ceive failed to reach him. He wan- ders about the coast and finds the camp of Captain Pring, an English- man, whose cargoes are of rubber- and rum. He falls in love with Rita, the captain's daughter. K He visits a steamer in the harbor and is mistaken for a beaqh-comber and attacked by several of the sail- ors. Burke is badly hurt and when he revives the ship has set sail for New York. He meets the lady Helen, who is seeking a man sud- cessful in love and politics. She falls ln love with him and awaits a proposal. Whom shall he marry, the proud English lady or the sea cap- tain's daugphter? The question is solved by an old friend, who had been traveling in India. While there he learned one of the Hindu tricks of foretelling the future' and 'thus' enables Burke to see the results of his marriage with either girl. He marries the girl of the South. I liked this picture, because of the unusual plot, the story ending with the hero's marriage and the events which followed already known. Thomas Meighan is a typical Ameri- can and is popular everywhere his pictures have ever been shown.

So it ,has been ever since the world was created. There is no living person who does not admire beauty whether it be found infgirls, animals, pictures or landscapes. That is the reason we all enjoy strolling over the campus of an evening or on Sunday. We are unconsciously drinking in the beauty of it, and realizing to the fullest extent how beautiful our grounds really are. Remember what Miss Tall said when she returned from the trip to Cleve- land: "I have not seen a more beau- tiful spot ln all my trip than the Normal School, with its surrpunding grounds." Our large campus with its wind- ing driveways, bordered with trees and shrubbery, form a perfect set- ting for the Administration Build- ing and Newell Hall. To people pass- ing along the York road, our cam- put is quite an attraction. Indeed, there cannot be a much prettier 'sight than that of our school and grounds, viewed from! the road. So then let us take a pride in- our school grounds and see how neat and clean we can keep them. It is up to us as to whether they shall be a. solid carpet of green grass or a plot of ground cut up by paths and strewn with pieces of orange peels or bits of paper. Since spring is com- ing and the grass is beginning to spring up green again, let's see if we can't "co-operate and make the campus even more beautiful than it is by not dropping any refuse on it, or cutting campus" any more, ROBERT WRIGHT.

And Death shall be no more: Death, thou shalt die! --John Donne. On .Ianuary 28, 1923, one of our, classmates, Reese Arnold, fell asleep and was taken from among us. She was born August 28, 1904,'and, with the exception of several years spent in California, had lived most of gher life in Glyndon, Maryland. Miss Arnold graduated from the Franklin High School in 1922, and up to the time of her death, was studying at Maryland State Normal School. She took an active part in the life of her community as well as in school life. She was a mem- ber of Glyndon Methodist Episcopal Church, and of its Sunday School, Queen Esther Circle, and was a teaqher in the Junior League. At Normal School she was a proctor and looked after the welfare of ninety- three girls, living in Towson. She was faithful and trustworthy in all that she undertookq Everything she did was in Aa cheerful and Christian, spirit. Through -her spirit of good will, friendliness and helpfulness, she was an inspiration to all those wgho knew her. From the memories of her friends she will never die, and in order to pass along such a noble example of young womanhood, a Scholarship has been founded at Maryland State Normal School and a picture has been dedicated to her memory at Franklin ,High School.

I am a conglomeration of moods, a collection of contradictory char- acteristics. I am made up of so. many different selves that even I am unable to recognize my true self. Sometimes I feel as though I shall like the gprofession which I have chosen. I am ambitious to make a success of this profession and to do things which will make my name stand out as a somebody. Then again I feel that I shall never make a success of teaching or anything else, and I don't care. I realize that I am incapable of accomplishing any- thing worthy of note and can only be, aw failure. There are days when I feel happy, contented and just naturally glad that I am alive. On these days I feel more like workingg I enjoy the class periodsg I am interested in Assembly and love to be among others.. There are days when I am just the opposite. I feel that life is not worth living, my studies are a drag, I am cross with every one and displeased with everything. When I am in this mood I feel indifferent, blase,'bored with everything in gen- eral and myself in particular. There are times when I talk, talk, and talk for the mere sake of talk- ing. My tongue 'says things that I really do not believe and yet to all appearances I am portraying my in- nermost thoughts and feelings. I delight in making my friends look at me from the corners of their eyes and gasp at my rash statements. I will argue and try to prove my point of view to them when in reality I am undecided as to my own convictions. Sometimes I will agree with the opinions of my companionsg then, again, I will take the opposite side for the sake of being different from everyone else. I long at times to travel, to go among strangers, to be unknown to the people I am with. It is my -greatest desire to go away from all my relatives, with the exception of my mother, and yet there isn't a family more united or more devoted than my own. ' There are times when I am. sick of! propriety and wish I had been born a native of Africa or some one of the South Sea islands where such things as books and 'clothes have no place in the peoples' lives. At other times I should love 'to move among the highest society, where formal man- ners and strict convention are the rules. Then again, I feel as though I am better fitted for my present po- sition, that of an ordinary girl in the ordinary life, than for any other. Although I have so many different ,selves, I know that I am one and the same person, for the one thing which remains constant, no matter which self predominates, is my quick temper. I become angry quickly, over mere trifies, but as soon as I have said my say, my anger is ap- peased. After I have spoken harsh- ly I am sorry and humiliated, even more provoked'with myself than I had been with the object of my an- ger. I have been told that my tem- perament belongs to the color of my hair and if this be true, I dare say, I shall always have it. I have come to the conclusion that I shall never be quite satisfied with any one of my selves. Despite the fact that I abhor my disagreeable selves and admire the composed, even disposition, I should rather be as I am than be exactly like anybody else I know. ONE OF JR. III.

"A penny for your thoughts"-- cries the tantalizing onlooker when he sees some one staring blankly into space. Just what does he mean when he says, "a penny for your thoughts?" Certainly thoughts are worth more than a measly little penny. Sometimes they are so pre- cious that we would not exchange them for the costliest of jewels. Shakespeare, the greatest of writ- ers, portrays the meaning of thoughts exactly, when he has Hamlet say in one of his speeches-"There is noth- ing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." This statement goes to show that one's thoughts influence one's char- acter. If thoughts keep crowding into our minds, especially if they are of an evil nature, our character grad- ually becomes the worse. Gossip is perhaps the best illustration of evil thinking. An individual hears a lit- tle speck of news, and if his way of thinking is evil, he will add his evil thought to that little bit of news until it has reached gigantic propor- tions, and the little molehill is transformed into a mound. It wicked or distasteful thoughts come from the harmful thinker, cer- tainly then, lovely and happy thoughts come from the beautiful thinker. The person who has lovely thoughts in his mind must indeed, possess a fine, noble character. Poly- anna. an outstanding figure in Elea- por Porter's well known book, looms up immediately in our minds when we think of pretty thoughts. Her mind was so Iilled with glad thoughts that she iniiueneed the lives of oth- ers and molded them into fine char- acters. One is forced to agree with Shakespeare, and to believe that nothing is good or bad but that just our thoughts make the wickedness or the beauty of the world. Thoughts have always been the basis of all civilization. .The great Maker of Heaven and Earth con- ceived thoughts that were the reali- zation of the creation of the world. Thoughts are our constant com- panions: surely we want good com- panions. Thoufhts are the expres- sions of one's soul. Now. aren't your thoughts worth more thanapenny? GIRL SCOUTS. "On my honor, l will try To do my duty to God and my coun- try, To help other people at all times, To obey the Scout laws." This promise came from the mouths of thirty-two girls as they stood in line, arrayed in white mid- dies and blue skirts, at the Investi- ture Ceremony on March fifteenth. Miss Hbwell, director of the Girl Scouts in Baltimore and vicinity, presented the trefoil pins to us, which indicate our three-fold prom- ise. We were no longer on proba- tion, but now were real Scouts. Af- ter the ceremonies were over, the Girl Scouts entertained their "broth- er" organization, the Boy Scouts, at a party. We were all happy because so many girls had received their pins thus arriving that far in their train- ing to be Scout leaders. We had ac- complished part of the work which was planned in September. We were organized then under the leadership of Miss Cooley and Miss Medwedeff, a true captain and lieutenant. Our troop, the Pine Tree, has fif- ty-six members. Our motto is: "Be prepared" and We aim to do so, for we are trained to meet almost any emergency through our First Aid work and Domestic Training. Among the many good times which we have had are: a taffy-pulling party, given by one of our patrols, and an illustrated lecture on Camp Cookery, when samples of the food were made and eaten. We have given a dance which many of the Normal School girls and boys en- joyed. It was with a sigh we heard the strains of "Home, Sweet Home," which brought it to a close. But we realize that only part of our energy has been expended and we have many things left to do in the future. Our sphere of influence will spread into the communities where we go, so now we must be energetic and faithful Scouts, so that we will be true and influential Scout leaders. We have resolved to be bet- ter Scouts so that Normal life will be happier, and the Scout troops or- ganized under our leadership will have a lasting influence. May we always try to serve our friends and do a good turn daily! ANNA MALLONEE. SCHOOL SPIRIT. I cannot be outdone in my esteem of the value of a good spirit. To my mind it is one of t,'ie most valuable assets an institution can boast of. You may have an efficient faculty, an excellent location and adequate accommodations of all kinds and in all directions, but if you have no school spirit your plans are incom- plete. It isn't the course in French, in Latin, in Mathematics, that attracts a fellow to school these days. What he goes for more than anything else is the college life. He craves com- panionship and the good will of his brothers. He seeks that bigger, broader knowledge of the outside 1 S world which Through his only school days afford. affiliations, he corrects his manners, through his fraternity, loyalty, through ath- he develops lethics, he develops co-operation and teamwork. In brief, he learns to work as a part and not as a whole. He has one common interest, the school. He is one for all and all for his school. That's what we need here, fel- lows, a common interest. The ideal is all set for us. There will be time enough for our little cliques when we get out of college, but while we are here, let's lstick by our school. Have a good word for old Normal always.

They are always cheerful and friendly, even in such crowded conditions. Morning. The place looks like the ground tloor of an East side tene- ment. The tables are cluttered with papers and books.

When I have dressed I depart to the bath- room to perform my ablutions, when- I find to my surprise and indigna- tion, that the water has been turned off. Now, I am in an awful predica- 'ment. Eyes still drooping with sleep, hair that will not stay combed 'without a generous application of gH2O. Then I resolve to go back to bed. I. pull off my shoes and lie down to peaceful repose, maybe. Before I lie down I look around the room and see sleeping forms hud- dling under blankets. They are sprawled in all attitudes and are -emitting various sounds which would not do credit to the New York Sym- phony Orchestra. I just doze and begin to dream that it is summer and there are no lessons to prepare when I am roused by the violent ringing of a bell. I awake with a start, and my dreams go glimmering as I hear the noble voice of our senior proctor shouting "Six forty-five. Time to get up!" Then I hear the strains of "Mr, Gal- lagher""or"'Carqlina in the Morn- ing" tloa.ting,to my ears. I resolve to get up again and this time -am able to take a bath without trouble. By this time several others are dressed and we march over to our breakfast of Ralston and milk, with perhaps, an orange or an apple. When we return to the Gym, the others say "Well, what have they got this morning?" If our reply is disap- pointing to them, they cover up their heads and return again to peaceful slumber. The thing that puzzles me is how they get dressed in time for an 8.30 class. However, they usually do and we start our dally routine of lessons. Night. Every light turned on full. I The victrola grinding away at top speed. At the tables a few boys are trying to read Silas Lapham, or Work arithmetic amidst the clamour. In this corner one group is arguing about evolution "Man did descend from a monkey." "Well, if you be- lieve that, you do not believe in the Bible," and so on. In this corner? five or six are playing cards with much discussion and little progress. At the centre table our two chess wizards are engaged playing on a series of games extending over the past three weeks. Numbers of others are lolling in the most unconvention- al attitudes and poses, reading, talk- ing and smoking. The victrola still grinds out the same old tunes as it did in the morning. Good humor is king. Then the lights blink. "Five min- utes more, fellows," says the proc- tor. Cards, chess, and magazines are hastily thrown aside. "Guess I'll have to take a shave tonight, Bill." "Where,'s my bati1robe?" "Who put this brick in my bed?" Much confusion with everyone trying to speak at once. Finally twenty- six boys are in pajamas of as many diiferent colors. A . " ' Y The ,lights go off. Exclamations from all and not a. very pleasant ejaculation from the fellow who has stumbled over a chair. We are.alI iinally in bed, singing, laughing, throwing pillows in the dark, some- times with dire results. Then the stentorian voice of the proctor: "Ten-thirty, fellows, time to get quiet."' I ,hear a sleepy voice say "Good nl-ght, Pip." I answer "Goo' night." All is still. Another day has ended. STUDENT GOVERNMENT. Now, whom shall we have as new Junior ofllcers of the Student Gov- ernment Organization? That was the question which arose in the minds of the student body of Mary- land State Normal School at the close of the second term. The halls were iilled with posters, which sug- gested the qualities these new odi- cers should have and the tlnal re- sults of the election were: President, Miriam Cronhardtg vice-president, Hilda Nolte: secretary-treasurer, Sue Wright. A new term has come, and short- ly it will bring a new constitution. Each one of us will start anew. Let us be loyal to this organization and constitution, which is the combined enorts and labor of the faculty and students. Let us make the Student Government function to its fullest degree and let it be our faithful guide and friend during our life at the Normal School. MIRIAM CRONHARDT.

"lt is my desire to become a Camp Fire Girl and to obey the law of the Camp Fire, which is, to- Seek Beauty Give Service Pursue Knowledge Be Trustworthy Hold on to Health Glorify Work Be Happy. This law of the.Camp Fire I shall strive to follow." Forty girls of the Senior and Junior Classes of the Maryland State Normal School, with truest sincerity expressed this desire in the early fall of 1922. They or- ganized the Liheo Camp Fire. ' Our name, Liheo, comes from the desire expressed by the girls to "live to held others." Our living to-help others we believe is embodied in the slogan of the Camp Fire, Wo-He-Lo, meaning work, health and love. We work without thought of fatigue for the good of the groupg we strive to maintain good health so that our work may be made more eflicientp and our love is the simple love of sisters. Work: One of the iirst things we had to -face was the need of money to buy materials, with which we might work. It is the unwritten law of the Fire, that Camp Fire girls must be as independent 'financially as possible, by earning their own money. But it was almost as much for our own pleasure as for any thought of the financial side that we gave a subscription dance about the time of St. Valentine's Day. As an- other means of making money we sell candy in the Dormitories. In the near future, March 27, we shall give the movie, "Oliver Twist." The work, however, that we en- joy the most is our handcraft, done at our regular weekly meetings. At present we have made only one ar- ticle, a woven flower basket. The next thing we expect to take up will be tied dyeing and we hope to mas- ter the art of printing fabrics with wood-block designs before June. For all of these things and many others as well, we receive a colored wooden bead called an honor. Indeed, it is an honor to have one's ceremonial gown decorated with many of the bright colored honor beads. Health: We try to hold on to health by forming clean habits and living in the open as much as possi- ble. Long hikes into the woods cul- minate in a warm supper, cooked over an open tire. After singing our favorite songs we start home again, happy and tired. We believe a healthy girl is a happy girl, that's why we hold "health" as such an important word in our slogan. Loye: ,We love each other and we love"'our work, but more than these we love our guardian, Miss Woolsey. We know that she is full of loving sympathy for her Camp Fire Girls, and it gives us a feeling of security and self-confidence. Through our 'life in the Liheo Camp Fire group we ,hope to establish the right atti- tude toward loving service for others. THREE CAMP FIRE GIRLS. . WE WONDER Why Dawes Garett talks in his sleep?

One night I dreamed that a king came to our town with a large mag- net. This magnet was different from other magnets. Instead of at- tracting iron or steel, it would at- tract cotton. It attracted all the cotton goods all over the town. Then the king put it in a truck and took it all away. - ' I When I awoke, all of the- covers were gone. When I reached, the chair where I keep my clothes, I found that the covering on the chair and most of my clothes were gone. I put on what few I had and went into my mother's room. I found that she was also looking for her clothes. Most of her covers and cur- tains were gone. Men were going around in woolen land linen goods. When I started to school I could not find my books, so l did not go. Sometime after, a man was wandering around in a field and 'came to a well. Here he saw books, cnrtainsg clothes, covers, dish cloths and many other cotton goods. Ile came back and said he 'had found the peoples' goods. Many people had at hard time finding their things. When we arrived at the well we had the same trouble. One day an army came- to oun town with a man in chains. ,They asked us to hang him because they said he had taken all the cotton. But i,"ie looked' like a king and we asked him who he was. He said "I am King Cotton. Everything I took belonged to me. I did it to see if you could do without me." Then we said, "If you are telling the -truth, we will not hang you because we could not do withont you." This. is only a dream -which will not come true. This dream shows what would happen if cottolifle-ft iis. FREDERICK COCIQEY, ' Lutfierville School, ' - -- Fifth Grade. BASKET BALL NEWS.

HOLLOWAY VISITS NORMAL.. "I am here today to speak about the 'Professional Spirit' a teacher should have. I have so much to say .in twenty-live minutes that I feel :sure I shall miss something. If I talk too slow raise your right hand: if I talk too fast raise both hands," .said Mr. Holloway, to whom we give a great deal of credit for such an arousing, interesting talk. Mr. Holloway started discussing school law in regard to certificates. 'One would have thought he was a locomotive by the speed he was go- ing. Normal students were wide as they always are, and two from several of the students be seen towering above the awake, hands could heads of others. He grouped his ideas of profes- sional spirit under ten large head- ings. First, is the importance of the preparation and training of the teacher. A teacher cannot teach what he himself does not know. He must know more than his students and must know how to apply his education. Second, a teacher must have an ambition for professional growth and improvement. There are three Well known ways of doing thisg one by use of professional books and journalsg another by attending 'teachers' meetings at which he must make contributionsj and last, but not least, a good "brush up" by at- tending summer school. Third, loyalty to others in service should be one of the attributes of -every teacher, This can be taken care of through co-operation. A 'teacher must be able'and willing to -co-operate with superintendents and -other educators in formulating and carrying out a progressive program for the reorganization and advance- ment of education. Fourth, a teacher must have an 'open minded attitude toward the su- pervisor. Every teacher must feel that the supervisor is his closest pro- 'fessional friend and advisor. Criti- cism on the part of the supervisor is 'done for the benefit of the teacher .and he should take it as such. Fifth, a teacher must do construc- tive Work. Think out things best 'suited for seat work, parent-teacher 'meetings or whatever your profes- -sion demands. ' Sixth, a teacher must exercise leadership. He should take active participation in the activities of the 'community and be willing and ready' NORMAL GIRLS FUTURE. - tglliifi ' -1-:-G. 1 1 tn. f I-f'fi'f1 ."-y 4 K, "l, f. 5' X lx Yrwxl. li .

A teacher should note carefully his actions in public. Possibly no one is criticized more than a teacher. Eighth, a teacher must have caur- age,-courage to put his job across. He must make education like "Cas- toria," so that children cry for itg like "chewing gum" so that it leaves a pleasant liavor and taste. Ninth, a teacher must have an.. in- terest in the welfare of children. He should consider children's health as the greatest factor. One should not teach, if he thinks pupils are ma- chines. Cl1ildren's minds are plastic land should be molded very carefully 'and by well-trained hands. Tenth, a teacher must be a good housekeeper. No one can be a teacher of the highest type unless he follows the old adage, "A place for every thing and every thing in its place? Q The spirit of the teacher means iso much. The attitude with which one confronts one's task is the first measure of success. The teadher lmust give what he expects to get back. One cannot expect success where attitude of drudgery lurksg where interest and enthusiasm are lacking. There is an absolute necessity of whole-hearted service in the teach- ing profession. All teachers should be equipped with a passion for help- fulness. A true teacher should enter into his work fully and completely and should withhold nothing of interest, enthusiasm or effort in his desire to be helpful to his community. ADDIE M.

On March 15th, Miss Tall re- ceived an invitation from Mrs. Her- bert Hoover to join a conference group in Washington on Friday and Saturday, April 6th and 7th, This conference was called by Mrs. Hoov- er to discuss girls' and women's ath- letics. Mrs. Hoover is vice-presi- dent of The National Amateur Ath- letic Confederation of America, which is composed of most of the boys and girls' organizations which include athletics in their program. A meeting has never been called be- .fore just to discuss all problems pertaining to girls and women. The following topics for sections of discussion will give an idea of the conference: Section I. 'tRecognized Aims of Our Various Activities," lead by Dr. Thomas D. Wood, Professor of Phy- 'sical Education, Teachers' College, Columbia University. Section II.-"The Means by which We Work: Play and Athletics for Women and Girls," lead by Miss Margaret A. McKee, Director of Phy- sical Education in the Public Schools of Des Moines, Iowa. Section III.- "Limitations for Women and Girls in Athletics," lead by Lida Lee Tall. Principal of the State Normal School, Towson, Md. Section IV. "Athletic Ideals and Standards," lead by Miss Blanche M. Trilling, Professor of Physical Education, University of Wisconsin. Section V. "Standards and Tests for Athletic Achievement, Classifica- tion and Eligibility," lead by Ethel Perrin, Assistant Director of Health Education in the Public Schools of Detroit. Section VI. "Organization and Administration." lead by Dr. Wil- liam Burdick, Director Public Ath- letic League, Baltimore. Section VII. "Urgency of Our Future Co-operation," lead by Mrs. Lou Henry T-Toover. Section VIII. "Report of Com- mittee on Future Co-operation and Organization." The most important questions raised were these: Shall our girls and women be es- ploited for international athletic meets, such as the Olympic Games in Paris last year? Such fetes do not characterize the womanliness We stand for, and they show only in- dividual accomplishment and not fContinued on Page 2-Col. 27 l Page 2-Girls' Edition THE ORIOLE "Say It IVith Flowers" ISAAC H.

The psychology of the spectator, excitement, and cheer leadership was discussed and it was deemed necessary to make some scientific studies to see if it were right to al- low the songs and cheers to distract the players, and urge them to the wrong emotional attitude. It was suggested that there is no survey of the physical fitness of wo- men like that of our men when they were examined to serve in the Army. Statistics show that one third of the men in this country were physically unfit to pass the health examination. It was also suggested by Miss Elizabeth Burchenal, of New York, that our civilized life has taken away the natural means of develop- ing our physical bodies. She praised the work of the High School at Colorado Springs, where their ac- tivities consist of camping, hiking, climbing, splitting wood, skiing, swimming in the open lakes, and skating. lt was proposed that there would be no limitations for girls and women's athletics. The trouble is that we are not sure of the right types of games for girls and women. The puzzle lies here. We have too often had girls imitate boys' games and have not studied girls interests to the same extent that we know the boys' interests. Miss Agnes Waymaii, of Barnard College, and Mr. Harry Brown, of Wellesley College, have done signifi- cant work in developing tests for athletic achievement. These tests follow the principle of the other standard tests. such as: Monroe Reading Tests and Courtis Arithme- tic Tests. Some of the outstanding figures at the meeting were Mrs. Herbert Hoover, who presidedg Miss Blanche Trilling, of the University of Wis- consing Miss Helen McKinstry, at whose school in New York City, our Miss Sammis was trainedg Miss Elizabeth Burchenal, of New York City: Dr. J. Anna Norris, of the University of Minnesota: Dr. C. Ward Crampton, of the National Child Welfare Association: Miss Ethel Perrin, Director of Health Education in Detroit Schools, and our own Dr. William C. Burdick, v-ho was styled "the most sought af- ter man of the convention." A luncheon ffor a, small group of thc leaders- was held at Mrs. Hoov- er's home on Thursday preceding the two meetings. Miss Tall was pres- ent at three of the sessions and she said that every minute of the three days was filled with serious and in- spiring discussion to -bring about problem solving for the health and development of girls and women. Miss -Sammis and Miss Cook, di- rectors of Physical Education here at Normal School also attended this conference. KATHLEEN L. GANTZ, Jr, IV.. BATS IN THE BELFRY!

The brave, fearless residents of the third floor were petrified. Doors slammed, windows banged-screams issued from each and every room- silence and semi-darkness and the bat reigned in uninterrupted su-- premacy in the deserted corridor. Suddenly and stealthily from Room 215 crept three of the bravest and most dauntless of the third floor braves. Kimono clad, heads careful- ly covered, they approached the fiut- tering monster, their only weapons being large sized towels. Halt! Hold! What was that flapping noise -the bat? Straight back to 215 they fled, to regain courage. From 207, 204 and 205 strange- looking heads, carefully bound with towels, peeped forth and hastily withdrew as the ferocious animal' fied through the North corridor. In severe unconsciousness, one of the most dignified of our dignified Seniors, having purchased a peanut chew, turned her footsteps home- ward. Face to face met Sen- ior and bat.

If not, you have missed seeing one of the rare sights. For the benefit of those who have to miss this rare sight I shall attempt to describe it. The door opens, and if it is the first time you have ever visited that room at that time, your' breath ceases to come for a mi-nute. Next you feel like laughing until you go into hysterics, for behold, there be- fore you is a sight which surpasses any you have ever seen. The tables .are hidden by one big stack of books and papers, the victrola is being used as a stool. some one is occupy- ing the piano stool and using the piano as a desk. The benches are 'all full and, worse yet, the floor is occupied with funny creatures. These -creatures might at first be mistaken for witches and a very few of them for fairies. They are dressed in loose garments which reach to their -ankles. On their feet they wear brightly colored bedroom slippers. 'The headdress which is the last thing necessary to be described, in -order for my readers to get a vivid 'picture of these creatures, is of a very distinct style. Some wear horns, which see mto say "Curls in the morningug some wear their hair straight back and a long plat and others wear it bobbed. The bobbed 'haired creatures look more familiar than the others. Considering color 'scheme and all, it makes one think 'of a Japanese flower garden with a few thorns on some of the flowers. However, you are thinking wrong for you are not in Japan, instead you are entering the study room of pro- -spective teachers and these creatures are ,fine looking young teachers 'when morning comes. The activities which go on in this room are as varied as the occupants thereof, some are doing mathe- matics, others history, others lesson plans, and still another is busily en- -gaged in cutting out decorations for some dance to be held in the near future. There are dozens of other -activities in progress, even down to the loafer who came with her friends. to write a letter and escort her friends safely back to her room. Although the appearance of this room is rather hideous for a visitor, it is a place where students go to work and I speak from experience when I say that Work has really 'been accomplished there. I know 'also that many persons have felt a little stiff from sitting on the floor, but what does that matter if the F -is displaced by a D?

She is a girl full of life, interesting and entertaining. Per- haps one of lfer most favorable char- acteristics is sympathy. If ever a friend needs helping, Hazel is ready with a kind, helping hand. She was born to be a success, perhaps more in athletics and her studies, than in other things. Her worstxfault is 'hat of taking on too much work. Hazel is such a girl that when asked to do something she cannot refuse, with the result that she is over- loaded with work, which she is not able to do without harming herself. Everything she does she puts her- self into. Her-work is a real part of her. Hazel has made many friends by her kind, thoughtful acts and her interest in them. Perhaps her per- sonality is the most striking thing about her and will carry her far when she leaves Normal to go into tice teaching profession. Quiet, but nevertheless a good pal, describes Irl Beall, House President of the boys. Irl is very studious and it has been said that some day he may become a historian. for he thas already shown 'abality in some l of his work here at school. He is thoughtful and kind to friends and ever ready to help the boy in need. The very fact that he is House President shows that he must be a favorite among the boys. zDoes anything go wrong in the Ad- ministration Building? What shall we do? Go ask Virginia. Be it a broken light bulb or a cold room, we all know where to go for no one has yet gone to her for help and re- turned unsatisfied. Sympathetic and resourceful is she whom we elected as House Mistress of the Adminis- tration Building. Before her cheer- ful assurance our troubles dwindle to nothing, for we know that there is some one behind us who under- stands as well as helps. These House Presidents have un- der them several proctors who help us to remember the rules. They do not forget to tell us either, when we are doing wrong, but it isxdone in a nice way and we feel no' resent- ment toward them. They are thoughtful of us, kind and under- standing, and all of us are willing to co-operate with them in striving to make our school a better one. Our House Presidents and proctors are an inspiration to us, and help us to become better students and a real asset to our school. We are greatly indebted to them and their kind, thoughtful acts.

Were we glad tol be back to those old "Halls of, Fame?" We were. When our times came to speak, we forgot we were, "speechifying" and only thought of one thousand and one things we might tell the high school students about Normal that would interest them. We told the students at least that much and if they weren't in- terested in hearing it, they seemed to be. We enjoyed being speakers that time1thinking only of our sub- l iject and our audience.

It was also necessary for the club to choose what special line of work we would do this year. Looking forward to our work in the field and taking stock of our equip- ment, we decided that we needed to know more about Maryland and the geography of our own homes. At the next meeting, on February 27, the club was named. It was a. rather unique procedure, several re- ports being given on lives of great geographers and "Toscanelli" chosen from the number. A committee was appointed to draw up a constitution, which was presented for approval at the next meeting on March 13, At. this meeting Mr. Walther started his lecture on the Uphysiographic Provinces of Maryland." At the very start Mr. Walther em- phasized the fact that not enougih. human geography is linked up with the study of physical geography.

That was why Miss Tall sent us all hack to our high school1with only the tiniest bit of a push. In order' to make Normal real, real girls told! real news in real attempts at real speeches. Two or three of us were! to speak in each high school. Now we're not stage-fright proof, yet fwe expect to hey so a possible five-hun- rlred listened a little more attentive- ly to the news about the speakers. "lt might be well for the Presidents! A brand new club has been or- ganized recently in connection with the Geography Department at the Maryland State Normal School. The purpose of the Toscanelli Club is characteristic of the noted Italian' astronomer and geographer for Whom it is named. We hope "to increase interest in Geography itself and to learn to appreciate the earth upon which we live." Our first meeting was held Janu- ary 31, 1923, when the club was organized. These officers were elected: President, Miss Sara E. Payneg vice-president, Miss Margaret V. Weantg secretary, Miss Louise Covingtong treasurer, Miss Harriet Luby, and editor, Miss Honora Bir- problem. Many of us were taught in a somewhat primitive way to "bound Maryland, name all of the large rivers, and give the County-seat of the Counties." Then if we did not know all of these valuable facts, we- were told something like this: "Why, Mary, you have had this all the- week and I see no reason for for-- getting it." Why not give the youngsters some good reason for re- membering rather than merely see- ing that there is no reason for for- getting information given? Through our studies in the Toscanelli Club we hope to be able to find some ways of making 'he study of geography more- attractive. SARA E. PAYNE. Girls' Edition-Page 5 GIRLS' ATHLETICS. Ever since Normal School has been in existence, athletics for girls, has been one of the chief subjects in its curriculum. During the past years the girls of our School have built up a repu- tation in athletics which had to be upheld by the girls attending Nor- mal this year. We have not failed in our trust. We have had various teams sent out to represent us. One of our first experiences was the News' Ath- letic Meet, held at the Fifth Regi- ment Armory. Our teams returned, bringing with them a Silver Loving Cup, The Senior Relay team'won ni-st place in their special event, while the Juniors followed the ex- ample set by 'heir older sisters and trailed along as third. At this time the Juniors estab- lished the title of "Good Sports" for themselves. So Dr. Burdick said, adding that he thought they had won a greater victory by being "Good Sports," that if they had car- ried off first honors. At the same time, Carolyn Waller established an unprecedented record for Basket Ball goals per minute. Consequently, becoming C'ounty and State Champion and incidently Na- tional Cflampion, as there has been no previous record in that line. Dorothy McLyman won herself a place as second in the same contest. Not long after this, Basket Ball became the chief topic of discussion. Tryouts were held and under the supervision of Miss Cook and Miss Sammis, the Basket Ball squad was chosen. Those girls on the squad are: forwards: Carah Laird, Clau- dine McCullough, Marion Ogle, Doro- 'bea I-Iisleyg guards, Rowanetta Al- len, Elsie Harrington, Eugenia Gra- ham, and Mary Thomasg centers, Anna DeRan, side centers: Hilda Stokes, Mildred Jones, Josephine Winand. The nrst game played was with Blue Ridge College at New Wind- sor on March 3, 1923. The line-up: Blue Ridge M. S. N. S. Borask ........ F. ........ Laird Brown . . . F.. . McCullough Gasher .......

This was our first and only victory. On March-10, we were honored by a visit of the Harrisonburg CVa.J Normallteam. After a fast and hard fought game, we were forced to low- er our colors to the score of 31-20. We had to admit that Harrisonburg has an almost unconquerable team. It is the fastest team that has ever played on M. S. N. S. fioor. THE ORIOLE Il Harrisonburg M. S. N. S. Long . ......... F. ......... Laird .Rosen ......... F. ....

At this little town they mistook us for a Vaudeville troupe, and one person even asked Mr. Dun- l'le at which show house we were in- tending to perform. Saturday, March 24, was a very busy day. we had been presented with schedules in the shape of Bas- ket Balls, the night before. On these schedules was tabulated an ac- tivity for every hour in the day. At last 8. 30 came, this was the time scheduled for thegame. We entered with full confidence and faith ,in ourselves, but our exit was not as high spirited as our entrance had been. They defeated us by the alarming score of 45 to 14.

We were supposed to have a return game with Blue Ridge but the game was cancelled. We hope that next year our Basket Ball season will be a greater success than it has been this year. Inter-Class games was the chief activity of the Basket Ball season. The spirit was wonderful. This method of playing made it possible for every girls to have an active part in athletics. Judging by some of the names of the various teams: Spitfires. Blue Devils, Nine Square, Dumbells, etc., the season had to be a huge success. At present we are working hard on Volley Ball and Base Ball. It is ex- pected that we will have teams rep- "PSDY'IflD2.' the school in each sport, .and that not only will we have In- ter-Class games, but also games with 'various schools and colleges. Miss Cook and Miss Sammis, the officials of this department, have worked with us and for us in our athletics. Our aim has been to sup- port their ideals, and to uphold the standards set up by the Maryland State Normal School. We must not, we cannot, we have not failed. Every girl has been working at her special job with all her power, and we can say, really and truly, "Our ideals and standards are still intact." MARY THOMAS. SYN ON YIVIS.

You want a favor and can't get it anywhere else, go to Hazel. She is the most free- hearted girl in' Normal, and I guess if you wanted it, and named it to her. and it was hers, slie'd give you the earth. Letis give Hazel a hand- shake-a real, hard one--onne that will make her shout and make us laugh again. Has anyone seen a little girl in a red middy running around Normal? She isn't very dangerous, because she is our Senior President. Watch out for her though when she is play- ing basketball. "Wood, guard Lynchie over there," shouts the Cen- ter. "I am trying to," says Wood, "but she is like lightning. By the time I get over there she will be somewhere else." No, 'our little President is as harmless as rite is sweet. Never a care or a frown she wears. Always light-hearted, jolly, and a smile for everyone. Let's give three cheers for her. Hurrah! Hur- rah! Now make the last one a long one. as Garmon says, H-u-r-r-a-h! Lynchie! . YVho said we didn't have another little bird around Normal besides our Oriole? If you don't believe it, just listen to our Junior Nightingale, who is just so chirpy. . Her singing is,full of the blithest joy. From morn till night we can hear her voice ringing out full and clear, uncon- scious of the joy and sunshine she is spreading around M. S. N. S.

Bef-ause of her faithful work with the Student Government the name of our happy, dimple-facerl Helen has bern written in the Hall of Fanie. llut. dear readers, let me tell you that Helen, although quite serious during a Student Govern- ment or Student Council meeting, is also a jolly, smiling girl. Lucky is he whom she smiles on. "A full rich nature free to trust Truthful and almost sternly just." Just such,a girl as Hilda Nolte must have inspired Whittier to write these lines. She stands for sympa- thy, good fellowship, sincerity, and honesty. What traits are more de- sirable in the Vice-President of our Student Government. A visitor, on coming to Normal one day, said to me, "Who is that young girl over there?" "Oh," I To 'me We all know Caroline too well to know that We needs any one to describe her. Who is more honest and fairer than she. When we see her surrounded by, a group of little children, ready to absorb the overflowing knowl- edge of Caroline who is acting the role of teacher, you will know that s' e is as happy as she can be. May love and' joy attend you always through life. said, "that is Carolinef' that seemed enough to say. A tall, brown-haired girl comes flown the hall. She is very busy and must hurry to keep all her appoint- ments, but she always has a kind word and a smile. She sympathizes with and helps any poor unforunate who hasn't done his lesson. "Always help a friend in trouble," is her motto. She looks very serious, but oftimes, out of school, she can be found in a gay or laughing mood. She enjoys a joke as well as any, and her responsibilities do not ruin fer cheerful disposition. Well, when this girl you see, it's Miriam Cron- liardt-the new President of Stu- dent Council. '- Who is our Captain? Anna De- Rau, of course. Everyone who has been to the basketball games knows who she is. She is the jolliest of girls and always has some new joke or slang expression to pull off on' the other girls, .her favorite saying at present being, "Now don't get flip on my hands." In the game Ann is a wonder. The floor in the center is usually kept clean because of her wiping it up with her uni- form. Then, again, that smile on 'ter face never wears off regardless of the results of the game for she is a good loser as well as a good winner. Her jovial manner and good sportsmanship have made her fam- ous. "Who is a good 'Junior celebrity?" l asked of a group of Juniors. "Why, Marjorie Hayden, of course," they answered. "To he sure," said I. "I almost forgot her." Marjorie is too well known among the Juniors and also among the Seniors to need a description. I, personally, like to hear her talk. She has the typical Eastern Shore accent. and has a very jolly manner with everyone. I hear that she is a big -tease and de- lights in playing jokes onpeople. But, with all this, Marjorie is a re- liable, dependable, and energetic Junior. , , . I ' A. C. HYATT, Sr. IV. ASK "C'SMANTHY." -1 Dear 'Smanthyz ' What can L 'do to change my color? ' P. GREEN.

You can't imagine what a. won- derful time we had at our dance Friday night, even if it was Friday, the thirteenth, when our luck usur- tlly runs the wrong way., , f Everyone .looked veryattractive. Some floated about in silks and geor- gettes, while others tripped a light. fantastic toe in simple street attire. The decorations were most appro- priate. 'Our Committee must have toiled long, weary hours, in their work, for the hall certainly did them credit. -Flowers and greens were placed so as to give the effect of a Hower garden. - ' But all too soon the last strains of "Home, Sweet Home," ceased, and we sauntered 'to our rooms only to tell the stay-at-home what a mar- velous time we had had. ' Herefs hoping that your "Junior Dance" will be as great a success as ours has been. Of course we will want you to write and tell us about it. t Sincerely, , THE SENIORS,. B. A.

"Man's inhumanity to man, makes countless thousands mourn." We think that Burns himself would have questioned the truth of these words could he have seen the large and enthusiastic audience which attended the Towson Min- strels on Thursday night. The per- formance was held under the aus- pices of the Children's Aid Society of Baltimore County, and a spirit of charity and goodwill seemed to per- vade the crowd. The Normal School, which is al- ways interested in community affairs helped boost the Minstrels and also gave the use of the Auditorium to the Society. From the moment the first singer came out until the last strains of the banjo died away the show was a great success. But the best thing of all was that the community should rally so splendidly to the cause of charity. . JULIA WHALAND, Sr. I.

"Woman seems a different being since she has developed an intellec- tual life of her own, and her rights and wrongs as a human creature can no longer be judged solely by herl usefulness to man." 'Before the latter part of the nine-A teenth century there was little at- tempt on the part of women to break away from their own small area, comprising the home, church and possibly the neighborhood, but since that time there has been a steady, almost rapid, movement toward broader, more essential things that cannot be found in the home. This progress was shown by the rise of seminaries, academies for girls and beginnings of higher education all over the world. This movement was gradual, un- til the outbreak of the World War, which seems to have been the owning point. Then the remark- able ability shown by women to cope with grave problems and also to ad- just themselves to new situations, aroused admiration and respect from all. Dating from that time, there has been a still more rapid progres- sion in the higher education of wo- men, as a result of which, they have not only developed intelligent and vigorous personalities, but are also taking an active part in movements for social betterments. in the vari- ous professionsg law, medicine, poli- tics, teaching Cin which they pre- dominatel, and in numerous other ways of meeting and solving the race problems with as much assurance and capability as their partners, the men, and at the same time, carry- ing on the homes just as efficiently as their earlier tuneducated an- cestors. MARY DRYDEN. LIFE IN "214. " If it has never been your luck to live in a cubicle in the Adminis- tration Building, you haven't had the most out of Normal School life. Perhaps many of you will laugh at the very idea-but I speak from ex- perience and wouldn't have missed the life for anything. In the first place, eleven wide- awake Juniors can get loads of fun out of making the life of a dignified Senior the very liveliest one at Nor- mal. The Senior of whom I speak will always be remembered in the hearts o fthose who lived in "214." She, the jolly, good natured, con- siderate, and best of all, true sport, has helped make the life a. real joy. 1 1 I A very worthy member we have found our President. Under hcr' guidance we have carried on our Work as successfully as a national organization. "The Mysterious Thir- teen," we call ourselves, and it is: really what we are. Our honorary member making thirteen in number comes from "215," so all respect to "215." We feel very sad to report that at some of our regular business meetings we did not have one hun- dred per cent. present, but we can gladly say that all were present at our regular feeds. Does "214" have an Orchestra? You just bet that we do. A six piece orchestra, and it meets every week on top of the partition. Our director has just reported the breaking of only one knitting needle, and our violin player has made no disdgurements on the tennis racket. As a final report we have furnished beautiful music, with but little ex- pense to the organization. Our con- cert night is June 6, 1923. Naturally, true love never runs smooth and from this arises our many quarrelsg true to life, and also true to the statement that Edi- son did his best work when angry. "Did you hit me with that pil- low?" . "Yes, What are you going to do about it?" and then follow the slam- ming of non-compliments. One of the most interesting fea- tures of the day is our two prize- fighters. As yet we have only wit- nessed two flghts, because at the last one, the radiator was directly in front of the contestant, and the dam- age was a burned arm. Even the nurse questioned her statement of "I fell against the radiator." We- feel sure that the antagonists strength and skill will improve with practice-, beyond that of Dempsey and Carpentier. 10.15, and the lights go out. All' is quiet-then with a sigh and at groan some one turns over. "I can't sleep, I didn't sleep all last night." From cubicle 4, "I haven't slept for two nights." "That's nothing," says some one else, "I haven't slept this week." "For goodness sake, I haven't slept since I started here to school," says the girl thinking she has added the conclusion, only to get the reply of "I never slept in my life." "I have never slept in my life and I am older than any of you," says our superior Seniorg we all turn over and go to sleep just as the clock in the old tower chimes the midnight hour.

"For when the One Great Scorer comes To write against your nameg He writes not if you won or lost, But bow you played the game." This is what each Pest and Normal is thinking, and do you know why? In May there is a contest between the Normal and Pestalozzi Societies. How every o11e is already brimming over with pep to fulfil some duty for his Society and make it win! The first chance, for the spirit to bubble out of the cup, will be given at the Contest, May 18. On this night the Public Speaking, Story Telling, Magazine and Author- ship groups of each Society will put on their best talent to give a decla- mation, tell a story, read an original article or short story. But this is not all, for who knows which will be greater "The Maker of Dreams" or "The Man VVho Married a Dumb Wife." Come, on May 25, and find out for yourself. If you want your Society to win, make your songs the cleverest, and sing them with the most pep. Every- one wyho is not taking part in the declamation or the plays is-putting his shoulder to the wheel, and mak- ing every song practice count by by purposeful good attendance and singing. "Lovin' Sam" might be the winner for the Pests, or "Seven or Eleven" might be the Normals. I Good sportsmanship will furnish the backbone of the contest. Re- member, "It counts not if you won or lost, but how well you played the game." M. HOLTSCHNEIDER. I l St. John's Girls High School, Bal- timore City, is jubilant over the re- ceipt of a letter from State Super- intendent Albert S. Cook, stating that our school has been placed upon the State's best recognized high Schools. When you consider that St. John's has given to the teaching winner for the A r profession sixty-one teachers, thirty-' nine of whom have been or are at present teaching in Baltimore City or County, some of whom are prin- capals in our public schools, it seems but a fitting sequel that this school should rank as a recognized high school. They have a new Home Economics Department, a new gym, and the place is alive with such ac- W Itivities. I hope I am a true pro- phet in saying St. John's is more than likely to better its own record in sending to our profession teachers. MABEL A. PIELERT, Sr. V. Sara-"Will you put "Angel Child" on the victrola?" George-"Sure, come here." A TALE OF THE BELL. 'Twas in history class. One poor trembling maid Had come with her lesson undone, The room seemed to darken and whirl all around, She felt as if falling headlong. When the teacher looked at her, oh, what should she do? Would the "goody" in back of her tell? "Next question," rang out the teach- er's clear tones, And r-1'-r-ring went the bell! 'Twas in English. The teacher had ordered a test, "You should think a long time, ere you write!" So one poor lass sat thinking, alas! Her thoughts were ne'er given to light. For ideas came crowding so thick and so fast So mingled and scattered pell- mell, That just as she took up her pencil to write- R-r-r-ring went the bell! 'Twas in music. Recitations were over at last, The day had been tiresome and long, The class felt like taking a three hours' nap, But the teacher demanded songg The voices were squeaky, the notes were all iiat, "The Spring Song" was sung like a knellg But they stayed there and sang it all over again Though r-r-ring went the bell.

What phase of the social life here at school do you really enjoy the most? Everyone will admit that hikes are one of the important phases of our social life. Most of our hikes usually have been either supper or breakfast ones, and have been held by sections, organi- zations clubs, or groups of students for mere pleasure. Since the lirst appearances and signs of spring, however, our hikes have assumed a new aspect. Just before our Easter vacation, Miss Cook spoke to us about the events of the Efliciency Tests. The main event, or at least the one that seems to have been most quickly and promptly responded to by all of the girls who are trying to pass these tests, is the hike. The hike re- quired for the first Efficiency Test is .md . 'tg of K X Wo? wg Anita ,,9.,,.u fown-lsltut Adam, im-fait a vs' ' f il E 1 t . its X ,fa - 4 5 3 E 'im ii , I ' I A M. S. N. S. PARADOX. forty-five miles, fifty miles for the second and fifty-live miles for the third. Is it any wonder that our hikes have assumedthis new role when we have to walk so many miles in one month? Early in the morning before the frost has disappeared a close ob- server, or an ambitious one, who chanced to be passing M. S. N. S., would see groups of girls, two, three, or more, starting for their morning hike. Some of these energetic young walkers, will return to the dormi- tory for breakfast at seven, seven- thirty, or perhaps even later. Many other groups of girls, who do not feel inclined to leave their warm beds in the early hours of the morning will begin their hike at classes, returning in time for din- ner. Several of those, who are am- bitious, energetic, and anxious to Hnish their hiking, will walk in the early morning and after classes, too. Perhaps you want to know where there girls go on their hikes. It is a. very easy matter to select a. place or a direction in which to hike as there are so many interesting places iaround Towson. The surrounding country is very rugged and hilly, consequently the View is very pretty !and pleasing to the eye. This is especially true if your home is not in a hilly region, You can see from this bit of de- scription, I believe, that hiking has become an important factor in our daily work. If you happen to see a group of girls, hurrying along some road around Towson, just remember that they are anxious to pass one of the Efficiency Tests and are hiking. RUTH JEFFERSON. THE BOYS' ATHLETICS. 'ltlre close of a very successful basketball season and the opening of the base ball period has been the special interest of the boys' athletics for the last few weeks. We see many of our boys out on the baseball diamond practicing for the opening game at Union Bridge. We areall. hoping for a successful season which we are sure of seeing because of the gain in skill and co-operation in ouv winter games. Boys, remember the girls are backing you in' everything that you undertake: Make this a record-breaking season. CLAUDINE McCULLOUGI-I, Jr. I. "OUR ORIOLE.

EDUCATION FOR EFFICIENT LIVING. A great American citizen caught a wonderful vision of a world of peace, a world of prosperity and pro- gress, and a world of ever increas- ing happiness. and it depends upon the kind of education given to the youth today whether or not this vision becomes a reality. ln this World of ever increasing complexity, with its great problems, rapidly growing in number and dif- ficulty, the future citizen has had placed upon him the Herculean task of bringing order from chaos, pros- perity from disaster, friendship from hate, peace from war and happiness from sorrows and bitterness. Let us, as teachers, consider what this future citizen needs to best pre- pare him to meet courageously, and solve efiiciently the great problems facing the world today. 1.-Iiie should be physically fit. The body is the, power machine, making possible every activity of hu- man beings, both mental and physi- cal. It is the most delicate, the most intricate. the most complex and the most perfect machine in existence. The work it has to do is a great one, and of an importance not compara- ble to any other thing. Every owner of this marvelous machine should make it his first duty to attain the highest skill in caring for it. To allow any part of it to become out of order is to proclaim his ignorance and his inefficiency. He should study it cell by cell, and organ by organ, until he understands perfectly its construction, its needs. the dangers besetting it, so that he may give it the scientific care its importance de- mands. 2.-He should be mentally alert. In this rapidly changing world, if civilization is to advance or if it is even to survive. there must be men who have the power to think and to think quickly, to look fairly at both sides of a controversy, to size up a situation and to make correct judg- 1Continued on Page 18-Col. ll Page 2---Faculty Number THEgg - i THE VALUE OF FREE WORK. By Ruth E. Buckley. A saw, a hammer, a handful of nails, a few lengths of wood, and a stove! One would scarcely look upon these as aids in the develop- ment of independence and individu- ality in children. Yet were you to ask a member of the first grade you would find him most enthusiastic about the slide planned and con- structed by a group of fourth grade builders: or were you to happen into our school just before noon on any Thursday, you would have a most edible dainty set before you by some member of a third grade cooking group. And straightway you would decide that stoves and tools had been very ettective aids in the case of our third and fourth grades. In September, an enormous pro- blem, similar to tl1at of every teach- er. had to be met: that of dealing with twenty-four boys and eleven girls between the ages of eight and ten, each one of them unusually keen and alert, each one eager to be working at something, each one titled with ideas, but scarcely one of them able to decide what thing he wanted to do, or express clearly any of his many ideas. It was in order to help this situa- tion that the free work period was introduced, the period in which the children work on anything in which they are particularly interested. Each child was allowed to choose for work. the thing he wanted most to do. In order to guide him in his selection, and in order to stimulate the desire for choosing worthwhile things to do, as much material as possible was provided for him to work with. A work bench, tools, lumber and nails were purchased by the school. A couple of miniature printing presses were borrowed and provision was made for the use of the household arts laboratory should any choose to work on a cooking project. After each child had decided upon his line of work, either individually or in a group, he was called upon to draw up a plan of procedure, which had to be submitted to the teacher for her O. K. before he was allowed to undertake the work. No part of the project is more important than tt'ontinued on Page I4--Col. ll HOW OLD IS ANN? A Fable by Nellie W. Birdsong. Once upon a time there was a lit- tle Bug. This Little Bug lodged in the brain of Man and grew and grew until it became a Great Idea. "Behold," said the Great Idea, "here on all sides there is work to do. Are not the streets alive with people who rush madly here and tl-ere trying to fulfill their destinies? Are not the schools filled with chil- dren who strive in vain to add, sub- tract, multiply, divide, read and write?

THE MODERN WOMAN AND THE CHILD. The love of chilhood has always characterized womankind. The niod- ern woman loves children as the woman of twenty-tive years ago did, except that her modern point of view changes the responsibility she feels toward the child. Modern life has changed woman- kind by bringing her into as inti- mate a knowledge of the world and the ways of the world as she had in the past in regard to her more guard- ed and intensive life in the home. With her entrance into public life has come a realization of what the future brings to childhoodg of what the child of today needs to become to be the adult of tomorrow. She under- stands, because of a wider scientific knowledge, the characteristics and needs of childhoodg she realizes that the child needs to grow physically, mentally, morally, socially and spir- itually. He must gain informationg but he must also gain habits which lead to ideals. Modern woman sees the child more sanely because she has felt the urge to keep her own youth. The world of today does not grow old. lt plays tennis and dances at the age when people used to be sitting by the fire in the inertia of the even- ing of life. As she lives with chil- dren in a natural and happy corn- panionship, her love of the child carries with it the responsibility of adding to the growth of childhood. Love is often selfish, seeking the joy of a child's self-expression with- out carrying with it responsibility for development and growthg pain. or crossing the desire of a loved child are avoided because it is hard. With an ideal of the possibilities of child- liood, the thinking modern woman bends her efforts to see to what ex- tent the individual child may realize the greatest possible growth. Some- times a modern woman loses her sense of perspective because of the excitement of life and lure of con- tinued youth. This is the negative side of modern life. The thinking modern woman is the best friend the child has ever had. .Ioyfully she meets her responsibilities for child- hood, rejoicing in the opportunity to develop in child nature the greatest possible growth.

By The Dunkles. Nearly two decades ago a teacher going into a rural school tespecially when it was a new experiencel, was startled to have the children, after the books had been distributed, come. as a matter of habit, to show her just where there assignments had been in the several text books. More startling was the situation when she learned that there was a good reason for her being given this informationg because in some sub- jects not any two pupils were work- ing on the same problem. As the weeks and the months went an and as the farm duties decreased and then in the spring increased, pupils "came and went," some stay- ing only for two or thre months- too short a pe-rio dduring the severe winter weather to get a proper atti- tude toward the schoolroom. The older boys, sixteen and seventeen years of age, were in school for so short a period each year that they never dtted into any promotional scheme, and so their interest counted for little. The addition of each new pupil meant practically the addition of a new class: and the classes start- ed in September, received thorugh- out the year varied degrees of at- tention. On damp or rainy days in the to- bacco-raising section of Maryland. all children except those in the first grade were kept at home to strip to- bacco: and on the fine sunshiny days in spring the children old enough. helped with the planting. During these periods of depletion, the teach- er worked for a few hours daily with the very small children who ewre too young to help with the farm work. This irregularity of attend- ance was discouraging to both teach- er and pupils. Thus the rural school life twenty years ago never became a community interest. and the school never gained that hold upon the child that is con- sidered so essential in modern edu- cation. The rural school picture in Mary- land. even today. is not bright: yet within the last two decades big changes have been wrought. The improvements have come in better trained taechers, better school build- POSTURE EXPRESSES PER- SONALITY. By Ethel E. Sammis.

There are nearly twelve hundred one-room rural schools in Maryland. Consolidation will doubtless reduce this number by half in the next two decades. The outstanding question then is: Can these rural schools, be- fore consolidation, and those whose location make consodildation impos- sible, be made to do work compara- ble to that of the graded school? Certainly no conclusive answer can be given. Some recent studies of the results achieved by rural and graded schools have been too favorable to the lat- ter. The schools compared were not comparable. Short term, poorlv staffed and inadequately' eduipned rural schools were compared with the tvpical graded school. No one expects comparisons under such con- ditions to be other than they were found to be-highly favorable to the graded school.

By Mary L. Osborn. A swarm of bees had just entered a new hive. In the thick darkness they had clung together in a teem- ing mass surrounding their queen. until in the heat the tiny scales of wax began to appear upon their bodies. Quickly the architects and builders of the new swarm had laid out the vaulted dome of wax, and the manifold galleries, and like magic the plan of the whole took shape, even to the tiniest octagonal shaped cells of the comb. "Give me room! Out of my way!" they buzzed to the other groups of workers. "lt is on us the hive de- pends." But when the structure of the comb was completed from the many cells where the eggs should be laid by the queen to the little entrance hallway, still the excitement did not cease and constant murmurings were heard from the workers. "Make way for me! I go to feed the queen. Mine is the mostimpor- tant work!" shrilled a little grizzly worker, one of those who nursed and fed and brushed the queen dailv in between the arduous periods of her laying. "But with what would you feed our queen were it not for us?" pet- tishly inquired a bedraggled little bee who was returning home with a bag full of pollen. "We who search the nelds for pol- len and nectar have been out since early dawn and we are weary. Our wings are torn and frayed in these few days since we swarmed. We shall die before we have lived a fort- night, because of our incessant ac- tivity to bring you material for food. and you give us not a word of com- fort or of thanks." "But you at least smell the sweet flowers and speed through the warm air in the light of the sun," quoth a tired little worker who was fan- ing the air in the galleries to cool it. We who work within, pass our brief span in darkness in unceasing drudgery. It is not even the privi- lege of those of us who fan. to tend and feed the tiny larvae, or like the nurses, to have the joy of attending the birth of the baby bees." "You do well to talk!" snapped a nurse. who was hurrying by with some royal jelly. "Be thankful for your easy lot. We not only have to feed all these larvae who will be the workers, and the useless drones, but we have to tend all those young prin- cess larvae while we know all the time the first one to emerge will kill all the rest and our time and food will be wasted." But as they talked, they became aware of a subtle Presence in the hive. And though they worked as fast as ever, a peace and quiet be- gan to fall upon them. And when their humming and buzzing had been subdued to a low monotone of activ- ity, they heard the Voice of the Presence as it began to speak. And it said to the wax makers. "O, children, build well, for you speak truly when you say that on you the welfare of the hive depends, but do not scorn your sisters' Work." And to those who tended the queen, the Presence spoke and said, "Blessed be the handmaidens of the queen! For her whole life, except for one brief flight is spent within the hive, and her being has been the source of the life of all in the hive." Then the Presence was heard speaking softly to the worker bees. "O, little ones, with torn and flutter- ing wingsl Mourn not for your brief span of existence. 'When you fly forth at dawn, look at the sun and be glad. Breathe in the dewkissed air, rejoice in your flight, and know that for centuries your labors have been Watched and admired by the race called men." "Little fanning bees who cool the hive, listen to me," the voice was heard to say. "As you wave your wings to and fro, think of grasses bending in the wind and of waves pulsing to the beat of the ocean's breast and of the treetops swaying. Know that you, like each of these, are moving at the command of Life itself." Then the Presence brooded awhile in silence till a nurse said timidly, "Have you no word for us.

The Elementary School play house started in the fall of 1921, is stead- ily, if not rapidly, nearing comple- tion. with many rich experiences growing out of it. VVhen we decided to build a house, last year, as one phase of Industrial Art. the Seniors in the Industrial Arts course. and children in the elementary school worked together, House plans were made by the seniors, as well as all the children in the elementary school, then, a committee composed of children from each grade, looked over all the plans and selected the one the elementary children wished to have. The plan called for a house 10 feet bv 20 feet, with a kitchen and a living room, including a fire place. Estimates for material were made by the seventh grade and the lumber ordered by their secretary, The building of the foundation was carried on by children from all the grades working with seniors. Ramsey Thomas, of the second grade, was chairman of the committee to haul away the dirt that was excavat- ed, our foundation being eighteen inches under ground. Then first, second and third grade children picked up stones to be used in the concrete foundation, while the fourth grade made a perfectly good mortar box from waste lumber. The form for the foundation was made by the sixth grade, who also mixed and poured the concrete. How weflabored with that founda- tion! When it was finished we thought our house was half built. but little did we know of fire places and roofs, or we would have realized we had just begun. The seventh grade childrqi, with Miss Minnie Davis as their leader, were our fire place experts. They liad made an extensive study of fire places, from the stand points of his- tory, literature, and design, as well as construction. The foundation was made of concrete while the fire place itself was of brick. The selec- tion of bricks necessitated a study of that industry in order to make a wise choice. Several brick companies co-operated with the children in helping them choose the proper kind. Indeed. every one whom we have asked to help has been very willing. During the construction of the fire- place v'e came to a difficult problem, which we couldn't seem to figure out for ourselves, so, upon consult- ing Mr. Sands, of Black and Decker, in Towson, he sent us a man who gave us the advice we needed.

By Helen C. Stapleton. How sad is the fate of the cat that, like Darius of tne Persians, has "fallen, fallen, fallen from a high estate." Felis domestica, once fed upon the rarest birds of the tropics. is now relegated to the precarious output of a mouse hole, once the re- cipient of votives of praise and sup- plication. now a target for old boots and milk bottles. Fuss ends her perilous life not to grace the tombs of ancient Pharaos, but to add her bit to the refuse of the dump. Like the Egyptian processes of embalm- ing and the Phoenician craft of glass making, the appreciation of the cat has become a lost art. In the an- cient East the cat was sacred to the moon goddesses, Osius, and was treated with great respect. In the middle ages, the cat still held her position of trust. Now the people of Hamlin must have sighed for a- cat! And who knows but that the Pied Piper himself may have been one of the tortoiseshell beauties that we see adorning the hack fence? Cats were very scarce in mediaeval Europe, and mustlat that time, have acquired the glamour of mystery that associated them with witches and hobgobblins. That they were still held in high esteem witness the adventures of Dick Whittington, who would have cut but a sorry iig- ure in the world had il, not been for the intelligence and loyalty of the famous Puss-in-Boots. Yet the cat of today is a mere drug upon the market, unwept. unhonored and, with the exception of Walt Whitman, unsung. Surely she does not lack aesthetic qualities. Is anything more daintv or graceful? How she adores the birds that sing in the treetops! How she loves the moon and the stars and the velvet blackness of the night! Surely she should be the friend of poets. Nor is she lacking in intelligence, The babies are washed and fed on scheduled time and that without Tabby's consulting with Holt on the care and feeding of infants.

First Grade. By Martha Sibley. Do you happen to know Mary Gay? You won't find her name on the roll book of the first grade room, but nevertheless, she is a very important member of that class. She came to school for the Hrst time one morning in September. and when the children met her they were told this child wished to find out all the things she might do to help her grow strong, healthy and happy. With this purpose in view the children decided that the first thing she must do was to sleep ten hours every night with her windows open. Then they set towork to make her bed room, emphasizing the idea of fresh air by having many windows to the room. They were careful to see that her curtains were tied back every evening before they left school. They named her "Mary Gay" that her name might indicate the'kind of child she was. About this time they decided they would do the same things "Mary Gay" was doing, so as to be as healthy and happy as she. To this end they made record books, that they might check up on their health habits each day. In a very short time, it was found that a bath every day was necessary, and a bath room was added to her house. Next followed a dining room with a. study of the right kind of foods for children to eat, and a good breakfast. luncheon and supper were worked out. All the while the chil- dren kept close check on their own meals. The last thing that was made for Mary Gay's pleasure was a play- ground, with see-saw, sliding board, hand bars and tennis court. The children printed signs saying "Mary Gay sleeps ten hours every night." Mary Gay eats oat meal. milk and fruit for her breakfast," and "Mary Gay likes to exercise." In this way the Doll's Health Habits became the life of the children. We believe that only as the project is genuinely the childrelfsgactivities in which they themselves are eager to engage, will they have any large value.

The most ob- vious value is that the intellectual side of man's nature is given oppor- tunity for exercise. A knowledge of the processes go- ing on in all living things reveals the unity existing throughout ani- mate nature. Wherever there is life, there are certain manifestations of life, dilfering principally in the com- plexity of the mechanisms through which they act. An understanding of the simpler mechanisms paves t.he way for an understanding of the workings of those possessing a high- er organization. This knowledge is not only an end in itself, but it is turned to good account in the prac- tical arts, whose aim is to place man on a higher level of physical effec- tiveness. Preventive medicine is the place for these applications of bio- logical knowledge. Then the aesthetic side of n1an's nature is given opportunity for ex- pression. The Search after Truth re- sults in a realization that Beauty pervades all nature, There is the obvious beauty of form and color, for the appreciation of which no scientific analysis is necessary. One never loses the thrill which the flashing by of the first bluebird evokes. The fiush of bloom on an apple tree stimulates the aesthetic emotion more spontan- eously than do loveliness of color and form in the work of man's hands. Appreciation of the beautiful in "Art" is the result of the training of one's perceptions. Man is distinc- tive in that his aesthetic emotions are capable of cultivation. But there are beauties in nature which are not known to many. The lakes and seas and the microscope open up a whole new world of living tliings. and reveal the fact that beauty is not exceptional. but is the r-xle in nature. ' Sometimes the beauty is of direct utility to the organism possessing il. The color ol' fiowers attract use- ful insects. More often beauty is "nn expression of individuality which has stood the lest of time. llvintinuerl on Page BOACOI. 21 BY-PRODUCTS OF THE PAGEANT. By Clara Kingswell McCord.

If you come to visit the second grade in the afternoon, you will of- ten find each desk covered with stiif manilla paper. Should you question a second grader he will explain that this is his silent reading chart, and that he is busy putting together his read- ing "puzzle." Observe closely and you will see that slits are cut into the chart and that one inch slips of stiff manilla paper fit into these slits. Questions are written on the slips and are fitted in on the left hand side of the chart. On the right hand side, the children are busy fitting in the slips containing the answers to these questions. At the beginning of the silent reading period, each child selects a story alld reads it silently from his book. When he has finished, he is given the chart with the question slips already arranged in order. The chi1d's task is our method of check- ing up on the ability to get the thought of the story. To keep a record of what each child accomplishes, a class chart was posted in the room containing the names of the children. When a child completes a story "puzzle" the name of the story is written under the chi1d's name on the class chart. He then begins another story. We have had an exciting race to see who could finish the book first. THE SPIRIT OF THE HIVE. tContinued from Page 5-Col. 25 And the answer came. "Second to none is your task. For to Queens is given the power to produce new life, but all would perish were it not for your nurturing care." And again there was silence till the Queen said, "Blest Presence, tell my children who you are, that they may do your will in peace and love." And the Presence answered. "Some call me the Spirit of the Hive. and others who have traveled far abroad call me Life. and some who have meditated much in quiet places call me God.'l WHO' F on AC ?

I am so busy with your plays and other work. both at Hopkins and at the Normal, that I have little time to make a more appropriate contri- bution to the Oriole than a letter. In this letter I shall tell you what my impressions of the Normal School are. Before I came here, I knew little of this very important institution, except that it stands in two immense, beautiful buildings of Georgian Col- onial architecture, on a hill over- looking a very comely section of Bal- timore County. Now I know the soul of this institution, and I have been so favorably impressed that I must say that I shall always remem- ber with considerable pleasure, the weeks that I have spent here. What has occurred to me as most emphatic, is the unceasing activity on the part of both students and in- structors, and still more to be won- dered at, is your spirit and enthus- iasm in this activity. It would seem that, with the duties of so many clubs, hikes, dances, teas and games, together with the duties of your classes, you would soon tire, and spirit would fail. But it seems rath- er that you spirit, like a stream in a storm, steadily swells, until now, in the days preceding the contest be- tween the Normals and the Pests, it will not subside until it flows into the broad deep waters of a summer vacation. Interest in the drama, especially in the one-act play, has swept the country like patriotism in time of war. At the Normal, this interest is apparently high, and those of you who are imbued with is will find your reward, not only in the pleas- ure of the present, but in meeting the needs of the future, when, as teachers, you will find your dramatic experience exceedingly helpful. As for your extra curriculum ac- tivities, I want to congratulate you, particularly on your dramatic work. You have much talent. You work hard. You choose your plays well. You are very amenable to sugges- tions, and your management is ad- mirable. Helping you has not been work, but rather enjoyment. One day I sat in the rear of the Auditorium while the Y. W. C. A. was holding its daily chapel exer- cise. I was glad to see that the Y. W. C. A. was functioning so earnest- ly. I was sorry, however, not to see more of you there. Lack of space forbids my mention- ing in detail your hikes and teas and dances and numerous other ac- tivities. Yet I want to express my appreciation to you for your invita- tions to some of these functions and my enjoyment of those which I at- tended. I want to thank the boys again for the delightful dinner after the baseball victory over Towson High School. I even enjoyed stand- ing up, when bidden in song by the girls, to do so. CContinued on Page 13-Col. 11 THE ORIOLE Faculty Number---Page 13 IMPRESSIONS 011' THE SCHOOL. tContinued from Page 12-Col. 2y All this has to do to a great ex- tent with your play. I have seen you also at work. I believe that you work just as actively anden- thusiastically as you play. What has impressed me most forcibly and favorably, is that, if the instructor happens to be absent or late, the class chairman, with the co-operation of most of the class, conducts the assignment and accomplsnes a most creditable session. In most institu- tions the class would wait impatient- ly, hoping that the instructor would not arrive, and then after a few anx- ious minutes had elapsed. they would fly from the class room with whoops of glee. Your scholarship, too, is as worthy of mention as your seriousness. On my first day at the Normal, I was curious to know what sort of stu- dents I should find. Although you are of varying degrees of training and preparation, in general I am free to say that I have found my classes to be very intelligent groups of per- sons of the usual college grade. I cannot well neglect to mention the faculty. I have never been in a school where the members of the faculty take such a lively interest in all the activities of the students. The instructors appear to be more than teachers, but rather as friends and advisors. Is must be gratifying to the faculty to be so confided in. Such a condition is complimentary to both students and instructors. In closing, I wish to say a few words about your profession. I am proud to be a member of the great fraternity which you are about to enter, and I look upon you as young- er sisters and brothers of this fra- ternity. s Aan older brother, I wish to urge you to observe four princi- ples: First, know thoroughly the sub- jects that you teach. Secondly, co-operate closely with the other teachers of the school where you are teaching. Profession- al jealousy and SSIHSIIIIGSS and ego- tism should have no place among teachers. You are working for one main end, the intellectual develop- ment of your pupils. Be obsolutely subservient to that end. Thirdly, be friendly with- your pu- pils. Try not to be merely a task- master, Be sympathetic without be- ing imposed upong be companionable without lacking dignityg be capable without being severe. Fourthly, guard the ideals of this fraternity with great care. Remem- Ler that it stands fundamentally for thoroughness and truth. Again I wish to say that I have enjoyed being with you. The few weeks that I have spent with you have tied by lige so many hours. Your attention, interest, and resli-onsiveness in class have been a source of real inspiration to me. Every school should have a par- ent-teacher association. Every Nor- mal School graduate should know the purpose and value of such an organization, how to start it, and how to keep it going and make it give a maximum of help in the edu- cation of the children of the school. The theory and principles underly- ing such community organizations are taught in the regular classes. The opportunity to attend such meet- ings is given both in the Normal Elementary training school and the training centers in the County. It is a safe guess to say that at least 75f7f of the Class of 1923 have at- tended one or more of these meet- ings, Do you know that in one year the deposits in the Students' Bank at the M. S. N. S. have jumped nearly six thousand dollars? In 1922 they were S2,867.87g in 1923 they have totalled more than 58,083.86 ' If 9 ' gig? . 3' "Lt'r'.:4.e Y b ' ..-i 1 155.

This is the place for the development of independent and original thinking. After a complete set of plans had been approved and the actual work begun, the child was made to understand that he was to work independently. He solved by himself or with his group, all pro- blems that arose. The teacher nev- er stepped in except to save the child from discouragement through too many failures, or to give sugges- tions when help had been asked for. Here. again. was an opportunity for growth in independence and individ- uality. The last and perhaps the most important step in this work of the child was that of bringing the project to a successful finish. There is no surer way of establishing a child's self-confidence than through the joy of achievement. The self-confidence and independ- ence that have grown out of this work have been most. important in influencing the attitude of the pupils toward their regular school work. With only one or two exceptions, the class are able to attack any problem that arises and solve it satisfactorily. There is a spirit of responsibility, independence, initiative and loyalty which makes i ptoissblshrdluaoinlu which makes it possible for the class to plan a lesson, conduct the recita- tion, and judge the results, with practically no aid from the teacher. Besides, the work will have been done so thoroughly that there will be evidence of learning on the part of every child. In estimating the value of free work it is safe to say that the pos- sibilities are innumerable and the results invaluable. The Superintendent and Supervis- ors ot' Baltimore County liave extend- ed many courtesies to the Training Department during the year and foremost among these were the demonstrations and regular teachers' meetings to which the students were invited. About lifty students have attended one or the other of these meetings and have come away en- thusiastic about supervision and the help that such meetings will be to them next year.

Mr. Raymond Allen, a Baltimore architect, kindly had one of his draftsmen make us a detailed drawing of all the essential parts of door and window frames, which the sixth grade studied before ordering the material we needed.

There are sixty little window panes! The first grade has its innings at times. and recently picked up all the nails we had scat- tered. Next, they piled up the short ends of boards, thus helping us to conserve materials.

Maryland has been the centre of interest for the past few years. be- cause of its unique program of edu- cational athletics. lt is the first State to recognize that, in addition to physical education, growth. and health. the play of children and the sports of youth have a definite part in character-building and citizenship training. According to Dr. William Burdick "Maryland is the pioneerl State in an attempt to make the ath- letics of the whole State count for the social good of its people." Since the basis of society is activi- ty, Maryland believes in organizing the activities of her boys and girls- not by publishing an elaborate syl- labus of physical education, but by systeniatizing and directing the na- tional activities of youth. The beginning was made in 1914, when the Public Athletic League standardized the program under the direction of Dr. William Burdick. State Supervisor of Physical Educa- tion. In 1915. appropriation was made by the State for athletic meets in every County. These were held. not for the few who excel, but for the benefit of the many. to encourage every boy and girl in the public schools to take part. Since then the annual County meet is a big day in the plans of the school, the com- munity and the County. It is the time when boys and girls can meet others under wholesome conditions. for the enjoyment in participating- for the love of the Sport. The winners of each County meet are sent to Baltimore by the County Boards of Education, to test their ability against other winners from the State. Here the County boys are the guests of the Baltimole City boys, and the girls are entertained at the State Normal School-male ing the social experience as valuable as the physical. Instead of bitter rivalry and enmity. friendly and spcrtsmanlike feelings are estab- lished. which will promote a more harmonious relationship among the coming men and women of the State. Other States are coming to see the value of such a program, so that inter-State contests will follow soon. By working within the State iirst, this program reaches all of our boys and girls, the coming citizens, de- veloping the right kind of loyalty, broadening the view, and providing social experiences which make for better citizenship.

The greatest evils of present civilization are the intellectual para- sites. They take from others t.1eir opinion upon religion, morals, poli- tics. art, music. drama, and give nothing in return. Education must iree men from this intellectual solvency, make of him a man. free from coercion from without and from prejudices within. He must be kept mentally alert, by giving him an opportunity to think for himself rather than memorizing the thoughts of others. Too much memory work deadens the power to do creative thinking, which thinking is the hope of the world. 3.-He should be economically self- supporting. Every efficient citizen should earn his own living, for if he does not, some one else must needs carry him as an additional burden. In choosing a vocation one should ask himself the following questions: fly-What are the vocations in which I can become self-supporting, that are of service to the world as it is organized today? till Vvhich of these vocations am I best fitted to enter, by sex, race. physical and mental power and by natural inclination? 131 What is the necessary train- ing required t0 do this work well. and is it possible for me to have it? There should be set before the child the innumerable possible vo- cations and he should be assisted in- telligently to choose and to prepare himself for the one to which he is best fitted. 4.-Hc should be a responsible citi- ze-n. Every human being born into this world. involuntarily becomes a citi- zen of many social groups-the fam- ily, the community, the State, the nation and the human race. As he becomes older and develops various tastes and beliefs he voluntarily joins others, such as the church, the school, clubs. etc. Being a citizen of these groups does not necessarily mean that he is a responsible citi- zen. All too often he is not even conscious of any responsibility at all. It should be one of the aims of education to make the child real- ize the responsibilities that these various memberships carry with themg to make him feel that the fu- ture progress of eac.1 one dep'end's upon him as much as upon any other member, and that indifference, neg- lect and ignorance, do not absolvs him from this responsibility, to make him see that it is his duty to study the past history of these social groups that he may -better under- stand their present problems and solve them more efficiently. 5.-He should be able to use his leis- ure time for true recreation. Since the mind's creative genius has increased tue mechanical inven- tion can take the place of hu- man labor, there is an ever ihcreas- ing number of human beings with leisure time. This leisure time makes it possible for man to engage in those activities which will send him back to his chosen vocation, phy- sically refreshed, mentally alert and spiritually exalted, so that perhaps he may, in his day's work, do some- thing so much Worth while that he may leave it to the coming genera- tion as a valuable part of its social inheritance. and thibugh this crea- tion of his hand and brain, realize to some degree immortality. Education should cultivaie in the child a taste for those things which will truly recreate him and a dislike for those things which will weaken him. lt should give him a love for the best of music, of poetry, of fic- tion, of drama, of art, of physical exercise, a joy in nature. its trees, its mountains, its lakes, its buds, its flowers, that they may be for him a never failing, inexhaustible source of re-creative energy. The responsibility for this educa- tion for efficient living rests upon the teachers, for the State and the parents so trust her that they give into her hands the plastic youth to mould as she will. With this great responsibility upon her, the teacher should with prayer and earnest striving, climb to the mountain top and view life as a whole, so that she may herself have a true perspective and a right sense of values. She must realize that her respon- sibility is to the child as an end in himself, and that her subject matter is of value only as a tool with which ttfontinued on Page 19-Col. 11 g g g THE ORIOLR g Faculty Number---Pa ge THE RURAL SCHOOL. fContinued from Page 4-Col. 23 ments in reading and arithmetic, and it finds that the graded schools are doing a slightly better job than the rural schools. Better trained teach- ers and more effective supervision give this superiority. The rural schools in Baltimore County, according to the data gath- ered over the past three years, show the rural schools doing practically as good work in reading and arith- metic as the two-teacher schools and the fully graded schools. The amount of retardations is doubtless greater in the rural schools-giving them an advantage. Granting that the rural school can teach the "three r's" as effectively as the fully graded school, is it giv- ing to the rural child that same qual- ity as well as quantity of growth that the consolidation or fully grad- ed school gives to its pupils. Not until many other elements of school growth are as accurately measured as reading and writing are today, can a conclusive answer be given. POSTURE EXPRESSES PER- SONALITY.

Ugliness is eliminated." The discussion of beauty in Thom- sen's "System of Animate Nature" is a very illuminating one. He re- minds us that the aesthetic emotion is a very complex one. lt has its physical and physiological aspects. When Nvordsworth Wrote, "lily Heart leaps up when l behold a rainbow in the sky," he spoke literal truth. Beauty also has its intellectual and spiritual side. The beautiful object arousing the emotion often initiates a sequence of associations, images and the formation of ideals which are not inherent in the object. They are subjective reactions and lift the one experiencing the emo- tion to a plane above the physical. The emotion can be communicated to others and so is a socializing force of a high order. Nature is so harmonious, and beauty permeates it so completely, that it serves as the source of the laws of aesthetics. Color combina- tions in nature are always right. Lines are flowing and movements are graceful. A sfndv of nature constitutes a liberal education. lt develops many phases of man's being, How many of our friends think of the M. S. N. S.

Think through each word with me. LIFE.-Are you thankful for the privilege of living? By virtue of belonging to the human race and of being born in the Twentieth Century you have a wonderful challenge. Are you proud of your personality? Will you invest it well? Do you realize that there is no other human being in the world who is your exact coun- terpart? You, yourself, are your greatest asset. If that is true of you then is it not also true of every child with whom you are going to come in contact? lVill you respect each child? A child is a. mar- velous mechanism of potentialities, capacities. possibilities. and ideals. Will you mould him into a liner creature or dwarf his personality? lt is a great privilege to have children as your materials for ex- perimentation, but a great responsibility. LIBERTY.-No man lives unto himself aloneg therefore, 110 one is wholly free. Consideration for others restricts one's rights. But again, what a tremendous privilege-to give of one self to tit into the group, for the good of the whole. Wliat are you going to do with a little childs opportunity for liberty in the class-room? ls he going to be made to serve the group, and so inhibit his selfish impulses, because you have wisdom and understanding? Is he 5 going to be allowed to develop freedom because of his own indi- vidual instincts. capacities, and tendencies, or are you going to shape him into a mould of your own, regardless of his fitness for your pattern .' NY1- can make wrecks of little Children or We can create almost a race of super men. if we but know how. Knowledge is the basis for liberty. THE Pl'RSllIT OF HAPPINESS.-VVhat do happy men live by? Cabell says by work. health, play. and love. Analyze these opportunities for yourself and then look at the children you are going to teach and decide whether they are to live by Work, health, play, and love. I would add one more word. TRUTH. 0116 who knowstrutli is a seer. lts contacts are far-reaching, and its purpose controls all living. VVill the children you teach be clear-eyed, see visions, dream dreams, speak the truth, think the truth, seek the truth? Go Forward. Class of 1923. LIDA LEE TALL, Principal. ' is MRS. E. G. STAPLETON. Do you know the honorary member of the tflass of 2333 lt you don 't. you had better get acquainted. for it is indeed unfortunate to miss the pleasure of meeting one with such a remarkable per- sonality as that of Mrs. Stapleton. Her sunny disposition and opti- mistic views are unsurpassed. lt really does one good to talk with her. and truly. there are few that could be more interesting' as a teacher. She is a friend to whom you n1ay go and always be sure of finding her sincere. just. sympathetic. and eager to help you out of your difficulties. She seems to know just what constitutes the right thing to do at the right time, and she seemed to take your joys, your sorrows, your troubles. and your pleasures to her heart, and consider them as her own. The Seniors owe her their deepest gratitude for her original ideas. her wonderful leadership. and unexcelled iriendships. and they gladly give it. lt was her high ideal of loyal co-operation. fellow- ship and broad mindedness that set the standard which led the class of '23 aright. and helped it on to victory. That she shall always have the success and happiness which she so completely deserves is the wish of those who respect. love and honor her, as their honorary member. ETHEL JONES. 7 STATE SUPT. ALBERT S. COOK A MESSAGE T0 '23 FROM OUR STATE SUPERINTENDENT. lt is with unaffected pleasure that I commend the members of the Vlass of 1923 to the people of lllaryland. and more important still. to the children in the public schools of the State. All of the money spent for public education in Maryland has hut one purpose and that is to give every child in the State a well-trained teacher, and an equal opportunity to prepare for a life- work and for living. The eyes of the friends of education are on you: their hopes for the progress of education lie in you. and those who will follow you as graduates from the normal schools. Only as you. individually. succeed in teaching will their confidence in you annul in the training you have received he justified. , My message, therefore, is a personal one to each of youg there must he no such thing: as failure in the Work that you undertake. Sincerely yours, ALBERT S. COOK, State Superintendent. S Y SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS MESSAGE T0 THE SENIORS. Dear Class of 23: We have passed through two years of happy existence to- gether and now the time has come when we must. part. We have had faults, it is true, but yet, we have accomplished a great deal that we should feel proud to have credited to our name, and each one of you has had a part in all that has been done. It is only through co-operation that anything worth while can be accomplished, Etlld this class is to be congratulated upon the hearty co-operation which has won the day for '23, The officers which you chose to lead you, have not been handicapped by ill will or dissent on your part, but have been helped and made happy through all of their work and they wish you to know that they appreciate it. Just as you have co-operated with them, so may the com- munity in which you teach next year co-operate with you and may your work be as full of joy as ours has been. Many a time have you sung "By our deeds you shall know us." and may this be your motto as you carry on your task, so that everyone will welcome one who belongs to our class. lVhen the Alumnae Banquet comes next year ,may we be there almost one hundred per cent. strong to stand and sing once more L'Three cheers for old Normal," and "Long live twenty-three.

Literary Society is one of the landmarks of this Normal School was iirst organized. a need was society. so all the students formed one society. Normal Literary Society. the number of it was thought best that they be divided into group retained the old name, Normal. and the the Pestalozzi Literary Society. Formerly the societies had separate programs, with a joint meeting occasionally. But it seemed that there should be some form of organization through which every member of the two societies might take an active part in t.he special type of work which interested him. Last year 119225. the societies were divided into five sections: Magazine. Journalistic. Public Speaking. Story Telling and Dramatic. Students are permitted to join any group that they wish. Each group has a faculty adviser. a student chairman. and secretary. The work is planned by the faculty adviser and student chairman. and all mem- bers are given training as well as practice in their special line. The work carried on in each group is of the type suggested by the name. Group work is a great success, Everyone seems to get a great deal of enjoyment and benefit from the meetings, At the end of the year the great event in our Hsoeiety life," which brings the work of the sections before the public. is the contest. On the Hrst night of 31 lllt' contest. the following groups are represented: Public Sp,'aki11g. Story Telling. Journalistie and Magazine. The second night of the contest is given to tl1e two dramatic sections. A This year tl1e Normal Society saw that we still needed more st-age t'l1lllDlllt'Ill. so after consultation witl1 Miss Greenliw. we de- cided to give the school a cyclorama. which was immediately placed at the back of tl1e stage, illltl is used as a background for concerts. iectures. and other public performances. Besides l'llQ splendid work carried on by the Normal Society this year, we feel that it has helped every member socially. lt has endowed them with a spirit of co-operation and loyalty. They have learned to know the members of our school better and this acquaint- ance has developed that sisterly feeling toward each other which is so desirable in any group. Being a member of the Normal Society has developed tl1e spirit of co-operation Ellltl loyalty, in that every enthusiastic Normal strives. by co-operating' with. and being loyal to her group and to tl1e society as a whole .to make the society the stronger a11d finer for having him. Due to the splendid spirit and tl1e able assistance of the Faculty. tl1e NO1'll13l Literary Society has beeii able to accomplish tasks which we hope will be remembered by the school. We heartily believe that the incoming officers and students will have as enjoyable a year as the one we have just spent to- gether. and l am sure. that. as we hand over our job to the new officers. tl1e last stanza of our Normal song. expresses our feelings. 1 As we look back with longing on school days we've passed. There is one clinging memory which ever will last. For by silk chains of golden and red-fast we'1'e bound, So dear Normal, wc'll strive till wc've made you renowned.

"Pests," what a. funny name-but it's not all in a nanie. At the beginning of school you could find groups of Juniors stand- ing in the corridors talking to 0116 another. "Pests," I hear so many Seniors talking about the "Pestsl'-wish l knew what it was all about. But it wasn't long before they fully understood its whole meaning, for one half of the Juniors became loyal nielnbers of our society. They donlt ask now what "Pest" means, but you can be sure they are the first to tell what it means. But, if you will listen, we will tell you Where We got the name that brings us fame. 33 ,Pestalozzi was an educator of his time, and we of '23 have tried to imitate his line, VVe've watched and fought with great delight for Pest So-ci-e-ty, our own so-ci-e-ty." Our chief aims are to give pleasure and to gain pleasure, to do the things we like to do best, to unite the student body, and to gain some literary knoujledge. We are a, part of the school because the life of our society is closely related to this institution. We gave as a gift to the school this year, four palms, to be used by any organization who wished them. ' Our big events are our contests, at which time, We compete with our worthy opponents, the Normals. "Pests"-Remember you have quality as Well as quantity.

Treasurer--EUGENIA GRAHAM. The Athletic Association, even though it is one of the young- est organizations in the school, exerts as much power, if not more, toward bringing the student body together than any of the older organizations. The association was organized one year ago, and in that short time, it has developed a strong feeling of school-spirit and loyalty among the students. As all young organizations have hard times in the beginning, the Athletic Association is no exception to this, but now she seems to have clear, calm seas ahead. 'Athletics to some students, did not have a very deep mean- ing, but since the Association has been in working order, new life has been put in all Worthy sports. There is now a definite goal to work toward during the whole year. Efficiency and perfection are needed before that goal can be attained. That goal is the Winning of a Normal "Nfl and the put- ting of our school on the map in the State.

W. is one of our most important organizations, it is not to be left out. Our work really began in June, when four of the members of the Cabinet went to Eagles Mere, Pa.. for ideas and in- spiration. They spent ten joyous days there, working and pllying with other girls interested in the same work. After that it did not take the summer long to pass. and before we knew it, September was here, beckoning us back to M. S. N. S. The Cabinet came back early in order to welcome both the old and new students. 0f course. the newcomers were our biggest. problem. We therefore. organized the early arrivals of the Y. VV. into an army of helpers-each private being labeled, 'tAsk Me." Their purpose was to help serve anyone in any way to get settled and begin to love this institution. f Our next big job was to get members for the Y. W., and so we launched a membership campaign. We held our first candlelight service late in October. ln March we launched another membership campaign and held our second candlelight service on March 18. We now boast of an organization two hundred and 'fifty strong. Sunday night at seven o'elock always found a group of Y. XV. members gathered in the music room for Vesper Services. As soon 37 as spring came we held these meetings every other Sunday. out in the woods. around a camp tire. After supper the Religious Forum has become a regular part of our work. It was planned that Rev. Lee would come to talk to us the iirst three Thursday nights of the month. but on the fourth. the students would meet and have a general discussion. On February 12. Chapel Services were added to our schedule. Miss Tall. our competent advisor. gave the first talk. These Chapel Services were held every Monday and Friday for twelve minutes. Realizing that there are many problems to be settled in every- one's life. and that it is often desirable to talk these over with a capable. sincere friend. the Y. W. held office hours every Wednes- day from 3 to 4 o'clock. The store room was kept filled with supplies needed by the students. and was open every morning from 8.15-8.30, and every afternoon from 3-3.30. , Since it is our purpose to serve in all fields, we held several social functions. Stunt Evening. held the second week. gave every girl some particular part to take in a stunt. In January. we had a birthday party. at which I assure you there were no wall-flowers. On March 16. we had a St. Patricks dance. at which everyone had a good time. On April 17, we gave the two movies. "Bunty Pulls the String" and "An Unwilling Hero." April 27 we presented two one-act plays. '4The Golden Doom." and "Joint Owners in Spain." Mr. Uhler. Miss Schuoler, Miss Greenlaw. the Craft Club. and several of the boys aided us. . When we realized that the end of the year was at hand. we decided that the Cabinet members, who are to carry on the Y. W. work and make it more successful. had to be elected. The new officers took charge immediately. but the old Cabinet helped them through the first rough channels. hoping that thus the sailing would he ever so much smoother in the fall. For further training. four members went to the 'Westchester Normal Conference. April 27-29. and several to Eagles Mere in June. Heaps of success to the Y. XV. in 1923-1924. M. P. H.

The past and the present can be told, but the future can only be foretold! .Through the capable direction of Mr. Paul Schoenfelder. the Orchestra started its career. The Orchestra was organized in the fall of 1922. Maryland State Normal School was very proud of this organization. Such rich melodies had never filled these halls before. The first members of the Orchestra were inexperienced, to be sure, but did you ever stop to think that the members of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra had their amateur beginning as we are hav- ing ours! The Orchestra reminds one of wine-'It improves with agel' Five new instruments have been added this year. not only increasing the tone volume. but the richness of tonality has improved. We are 11ow playing more advanced music, which is a proof in itself that our group has progressed. Miore concrete examples can be given to show the growth of the Orchestra. Monday, May 1-L, they broadcasted part of the pro- gram played at the concert the following Thu1'sday night. May 16. The commencement will be another occasion for our public ap- pearance. We. the members of the Orchestra. fully appreciate the long hours of rehearsing. preparatory to public appearances. which lead to a satisfaction in the accomplishment of an aesthetic piece of work. But we also experience enjoyment of a different sort when we join the Glee Club for social evenings and supper hikes. for in our work and in our play, we strive toward the same goal. We hope in two years the Orchestra will have grown from seven members to at least twenty-tive, and that instead of giving only one outside concert, it will be in constant demand. We have fond memories of the past, we are happy in the present, and here 's to success in the future to the Orchestra of the Maryland State Normal School! 39 BRICE MAXWELL. SR. V. GLEE CLUB.

This app'ies to the Glee Club. which every one hears so often and enioys so much. This club has been in existence for three years. beginning' in 1920, under the competent supervision of Miss F-hurtz. and has grown to a membership of one hundred strong. The tirst year, no outside work was done, but as we passed into the second year. twelve of our members sang' before the Legislature. we assisted i11 many school functions and rendered a concert.. This year we have accomplished still greater things. lie- side outside work. our concert on May seventeenth. was one of the best pieces of work ever put across by this -club. This concert was broadcasted on May fourteenth, by Sanders and Stayman. Balti- more. lt consisted of many difficult compositions, including a can- 1ata. The proceeds from the concert will be used toward buying' a radio equipment for the school. Many of the members who were unable to be in the concert. on account of student teaching, showed their loyalty by helping in various other ways. Believing that social features are conducive to a better spirit, we had several small dances and several supper hikes. We are looking forward to a very successful year in 1923- ISIQ4. and we would like to extend good wishes to the faculty and to the students. BETTY VVORTHINGTON. '21 40 HISTORY CLUB THE HISTORY CLUB. Among the numerous organizations at Normal, of which you already have heard much. no doubt. there is one. particularly dear to its members. and especially valuable in the work it does. The History Club of the Maryland State Normal School, is. as its name suggests, an organization for the promotion of historical study. research ,and interest in history. , Our special project of this year, in connection with accom- plishing our big aim. is the collecting of facts and data from authen- tic sources. on the history of the several Counties of Maryland. The oral report method has ben our chief solution for the task of gather- ing and bringing to our club, this material. These reports furnish interesting and instructive work for our meetings. VVe meet twice a month. and besides our more serious task of writing Maryland History, we have delightful social times, with refreshments and chats among ourselves. Then we have a couple of the most remarkable supper hikes, during the spring season, in which geography. native-lore. and athletics supplant our love of history for that day! From the combined projects of work and recreation. one of which any group must surely offer. our History Club is a most worthy organization. For the benefit of those who are less familiar than I. with this splendid club. l wish to commend your interest. your investigation, and your membership. For next year. let the slogan be: t'Think about us. find out about us. Join us'l-and all set out for a great success in 1924. MAXXVELL R. SAURA, '23. -11 ,v .W ' u If 5 TOSCANELLI CLUB - TOSCANELLI CLUB. VVhat's in a name! To the geography club members, it seemed a very important thing until we l1ad selected o11e. After various members grave reports on some of the most prominent geographers, we chose Toscanelli. not only because it sounds well, but because we hope to achieve in our club just as much as Toscanelli did, even though it is in a smaller way. Under the advice of Mr. Waltl1e1', I am sure we will. Our club is young, having been organized January 31, but we planned many interesting meetings and excursions. A study of the WG3t,l161' Bureau in Baltimore, was made, to find out how weather reports were taken, how weather charts were made. and of what value they are to the people. This information was discussed and each member learned that if it wasn't of use to us now, it would be very useful when we were out in our own schools. One of the most enjoyable and educative trips, was our ex- cursion to XVashington and Mt. Vernon, which offered an excellent opportunity for many Normal girls who had never been there, to see the Capitol, VVhite House, Congressional Library, parks, and other interested things. If on our journey. we were confronted by anything we could not understand. Mr. Walther was always nearby to help us out of our difficulty. l am sure this day will live long in our memories. This only gives you a bare idea of what we have done. but- if you watch carefully. the Oriole next year, you will see how rapidly the Toscanelli l"lub is progressing. S. ITHLER.

S. l1as been an organized iiody of students whose interests have lain in the Psychological tield. lt was organized under the supervision of Miss liirdsong and Mr. Dunkle, who are the instructors of this subject at the school. The aim has been to apply the theories learned in classes to our own lives. and the lives of those with whom we associate. One phase of our work has been the study of dilferent types of intelligence. To accomplish this. one of our chief events was a trip to the State Asylum at Rosedale. where we were shown the different stages of human intelligence. Through our work. we are able to recognize and rate human l11tt'lllg611C9. This recognition a11d rating is very important from our professional standpoint as well as our personal standpoint. ln our teaching we may chance to meet with mental delinquents. Our experiences will serve to help us to deal with children in this condition. Next year we expect to accomplish greater things. XVe hope to arouse an interest among the student body in the work we expect to do. Above all. we are aiming to apply our acquired knowledge of human nature. human intelligence ratings and mental hygiene. to our own work in our own school room, when we leave the Maryland State Normal School.

'tSeven o'cl0ek! Gee, Wliiz! I just know I'll be late, and I havenut a nickel to my name! Whee! Let me by!" Off goes one of the famous pianists of Newell Hall, and it is useless to ask where she is going because everyone knows that the Craft Club meets at' this time on Thursday evening. In she comes, panting and blowing, because it is so unlike Kaye to hurry. i'Madam President, May I speak to you a moment, please?" asks our secretary, Caroline. t'Certainly, Ilm not proud," replies Ethel. "VVell, I just thought that I would ask you it' you would dispense with the minutes tonight, because I have been so busy- writing my theme-talking to Miss Amberson, carrying my books into the diniig room and a million other things, that I havenlt had a minute to spare. Will you. please?" Caroline can't fool us though, for we know she has every thing down in black and white sooner or later. "The meeting will please come to order," demands our noble president, Ethel. And let me tell you, we come to order, too, be- cause if we don't-well, our president doesn't stand for any fool- ishness. Remember our 'tKnave of Hearts' 'and Six Who Pass Wliile The Lentils Boil"? But let me tell you folks, if you could have seen us working you would have turned your heads, and a long sigh would have been your last word. Oh! those costume making days! If you had been listening 47 in you would have caught such bits of conversation as "Say, Ann, my shoe doesn't til Y" "XVI-ll. mine doesnt either. and what's more. my wig dyes my lace. and everything I have." "0hl Marjorie. what a peach of a cook you make. but l would hate to eat any ot' your famous dishes!" "He-lp! Help! Miss Woolsey, this thing won't stop." shouts Dean in the midst of all the contusion. t'l'his thing is the adorable little electrical sewing machine that Miss Woolsey loa11ed us to make our costumes. and which we nearly ruinedl. Miss VVoolsey rushes forth-turning over two or three chairs, and at last saves the day, and Dean declares, "l'll conquer this thing, and l'm going to buy one with my Iirst check." "Nancy, you're the best looking cinnamon jar I ever saw!" "Oh. yes. a11d cinnamon has a mighty good flavor, but for mercy's sake don 't let me be lost from my peppery-pal, Ella." XVe're spicy enough. and. indeed. so much so that we even had vinegar to neutralize it. l "Oh, Nellie. l should think you would he scared to death to stand up there all alone. Aren't you afraid you will forget to answer a question?" "Ot course, I'm not afraid, because I know that Mrs. lllctford right behind that curtain, and she won't forget me. or anyone." Nell won fame in the Craft I lub for frivine' -1 lone' term of service as our chef. . "Catherine. will you please help me with this bookcase next 'l'hursday?" 4'l.'ertainly. I should love to." and I know we can depend on Sir Davie Little Boy, because he wouldn't break a promise for a pair of little finger-rings and a whole pot of gold. lf you do11't believe he 's real, just try her out some time." "Miss Greenlaw, l'm worried stiff. 'deed I am! The price of oranges has gone up and we aren't making a. thing." Poor Louise B., she's a splendid worker and if it weren't. for her. the girls wouldn't have nice apples and oranges to buy for the small sum of tive cents a piece. But. just ask Louise, she's a good fruit-seller- let 's go! Apples and oranges. The most sacred thing of the Craft Club is its Mlascotl Louise V. takes good care of that. When anyone mentions L'Mascot," up go the windows. out come handkerchiefs. and as many as can get away, sneak out!

K., Sr. l. 5 0 l l i 1 I GIRL SCOUTS WHY NOT BE A SCOUT! Being a scout has many advantages, because the aims and purposes of the organization are of the highest. The Promise, "On my honor I will try to do my duty to God and my County, to help others at all times, to obey the Scout Laws," is the key of the organization.. The result from training received in an organization based on such a promise, would naturally be very beneficial to us when we enter the teaching profession. Ideals, such as honesty, loyalty, thriftiness. usefulness to others, kindness to animals, obedience, and cleanliness in thought, word and deed. are the ideals which, by our example, we wish to instill in the children whom we are to teach. The course in Scout work enables one to become a leader in his community. and by organizing a similar course, p1'epare others for good citizenship. The Scouts organization at Normal has more than fifty mem- bers, all of whom are interested and enthusiastic Workers, under the efficient leadership of Miss Cooley and Miss Medwedeff. The Scouts do not work all the time. In the past we have had taffy pulls, hikes, and a joint meeting with the Boy Scouts. At present, we are having a supper hike every other week, which takes the place of our regular meeting. We have had one. at which we invited the Faculty, and one at which we invited the boys. The various patrols are taking charge of the hikes, and many pleasant times are experienced by tlower searchers, fire builders, and those who love to sing and hear stories told. Juniors, next year you will have the chance to join. Take 51 the hint from an old Scout. a11d don't miss the opportunity! It's great fun! GRAVE HAYNE and HELEN SCHFOLER. WHY THE LEAVES CHANGE COLOR AND COME DOWN IN THE FALL. Once upon a time the trees did 11ot lose their leaves in the winter. but tl1ey stayed pretty and green all the year round. Through- out the long. cold months. the forests were the most beautiful spots in the world and everyone talked about the beauty of the trees. Uf course. the trees were very. very. proud of themselves. because they had heard people that they were the prettisst things in The whole wide world. so they held their heads high and scoifed at the plants that died off in the winter. One day. it grew terribly cold. Hlld the snow started to fall heavily. The little flowers in the forest began to shiver and freeze, and atter a while they decided to ask the trees to send them down some of their green leaves for a blanket. But the trees were so proud of their good looks that they refused to do this. Then the tlowers began to cry. Hlltl they begged and pleaded for just a few leaves to protect themselves from the wind and snow. "No," said the trees. "we shall not give you any of our leaves, for then we would not be quite as beautiful as we are nowfl Now. Mother Nature had been listening to all that went 011. and she grew so angry when she saw that the tue-es were so selfish. that she told them that all of their leaves would be made to fall off. and they would not be beautiful any more in the winter time. lin- mediately. a big puff of wind came along. and down fluttered all of the pretty leaves. which covered up the Howers and kept them warm and snug. After this the trees grew very sad. so sad that Mother Nature was afraid that they were all going to die, and she knew that she would have to do something to please them. She thought for a long time. and then she hit upon a plan. lt was this: that every year. just before the cold North winds came to blow the leaves from the trees. the leaves would change color. and become all the different shades of the rainbow. This pleased the trees very much. for they knew that at that time. they would be more beauti- ful than anything in this big. wide world, so they became quit- nappy once more. To this day. the leaves of the trees change their colors in th :- tall of the year. and when the cold North winds come they all fall otf. leaving the trees hare and ugly. ETHEL LYNKTH. Sr. IV.

The friendly spirit existing between the other two Sororities and our Sororiety is a thing which gives us great pleasure. YVe shall never forget the times when we were entertained by the Delta Beta Delta and the Nu Sigma Sororities. lNVe are also thrilled when we think of the good times we had together here at Normal School and we believe we have made some friendships which will mean worlds to us in the future, for when you work and play together for one year. you are bound to feel a warm friendship. We have worked this year. and we have thought hard what. we might do that would make life, for the student body, happy in the Administration Building as well as in Newell Hall. We finally decided that a Cabinet Bulletin Board would at least make the hall- way more beautiful, and we hope it will in this way, make the student body happy, while they are in the Administration Building. Q NVe hope that the Delta Beta Delta's, Nu Sigma's, and the Sigma Alpha's have had as enjoyable a year as the Alpha Kappa 57 lkelta have had, and we wish them success in everything they undertake. 'lo every student in the student body we say "Good luck lo you." To dear old Maryland State Normal School, on which we are so dependent, we wish a successful and happy career. E. R. N. NORMAL-ii UESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1922. The lovely Auditorium was in gala attire, decked in autumn Eeaies and corn shocks, with the grim smile of the Jack 0' Lanterns peeping from every corner. NVhat did this all mean? Just this- the Seniors were entertaining the Juniors. by means of a Hallow'een party. At eight o'clock, the orchestra started the fun. XVhat a con- trast of styles and colors, as the live hundred students circled the room, skipping and dancing. 'with all the spirit of the season? Every- one was there to have just the best kind of a time-a11d they had it. too. XYicked witches danced with the daintiest fairies: coal black waiters danced with the fairest ballet dancers: gypsies and clowns tripped about the room, indeed there was no one left out. Those who did not dance joined in the games, and had just the merriest sort of a time. After dancing and playing for a long time. a call was issued to fall in line and get your refreslnnents. Yum! Yum! WE1'911't, they good? Just ask anyone and they will tell you. The cider tasted like "more." those pumpkin pies were the best you could want. the ginger cookies were as smart as their names. the salted peanuts and mints were extra good. and those nice. juicy apples were bette rthan good. Shall we forget that night? VVell. I should say not. for the fun we had made a lasting impression on the mind of every Senior. XVon't it be fun to think of it in years to come. when we are far away from Normal, helping some one to have a good time! ETHEL JONES.

That's what we are. We stand for and strive for comradeship. The spirit among all the sororities has been friendlier this year than ever before. After being entertained by the D. B. Dfs with a feed and by the A. K. D.'s with a dance, we gave a St. Pat- rick 's party to both sororities on February fourteenth. We felt that- friendly interest was then at its heightg and our hope is for an increase of good fellowship among the sisterhoods in the future. On April fourteenth, "Nothing But The Truth," was pre- sented under the auspices of our sorority. and proved to be quite a success. The proceeds of this play went to Miss Tall's contingent fund and to the sorority. Our serious side of life and good work was shown by our sending a check to the Near East Relief. NVe feel that not only should we spend our time and money in pleasures for ourselves, but we try to help those lacking the necessities of life. This exemplifies one of our ideals-hhelping others." The biggest event of our social season occurred in the middle of May, when we gave our farewell dance at the Hotel Emerson. To our classmates. the Nu Sigma Sorority we would like to ex- tend best wishes for successful teaching, to the Seniors of next year, the wish that they may have an enjoyable and worthwhile year, and to the Faculty, thanks for the many happy and helpful hours spent with them.

The Sigma Alpha fraternity has for its purpose, cultivating social and fraternal spiritg raising standards of scholarshipg and promoting the manly, mental and moral faculties among the male students of the Maryland State Normal School. Although the idea came to the boys early last year, it was not until October ll, 1922, that the Sigma Alpha fraternfty of Mary- land State Normal School was founded. They did not organize as soon as the fraternity idea came to them. but instead. made a very careful study and investigation of all material available concerning fraternities. During this study and investigation. they met repre- sentatives from other fraternal organizations and corresponded with many colleges over the country. The fraternity is under excellent leadership, having for its president W. C. Hull, with Bryce Maxwell as his assistant, and Joseph Simonds as secretary-treasurer. ln order that they might make the Sigma Alpha fraternity a. much more valuable asset to the school, they took into their group, through invitation, seven members of the Junior Class. This fraternal group has for its motto, "lt is only the great hearted who can be true friends. The mean, the cowardly, can never know what true friendship means." The charter members are: ERNEST L.

One of the most pleasant experiences that we have had this year at M. X. was Superintendents' and County Board Day 111 January. 1923. On that day the State Superintendent, the State Board. the County Superintendents. and the County Boards of Edu- cation were our guests. VVe had a rousing Assembly. All students were seated ac- cording to their home Counties. The visitors were given an idea of the various phases of our school life by the short speeches that the officers and members of the clubs and organizations gave. Patriotic songs were sung and the flag was saluted. IVhen the Assembly was dismissed. each group of students claimed his own County representatives and took them on a sight- seeing trip around our buildings and campus. VVhen our guests departed. they left us with a feeling ot closer relationship and good fellowship. From the letters which Miss Tall later received from some of the Superintendents and Board members. we could see that they. too. enjoyed the day. They felt that they were better acquainted with their girls, knew more of this school's activities. and could better appreciate the work that we are trying to accomplish. It surely is a splendid thing for those entering the teaching' profession to meet their Superintendent and members oi' the County Boards while at Normal. A day. that is so beneficial to them and to us. is one of NormaI's red letter days, and should be continued. RUTH JEFFERSON. ' Eugenia-Did you get the llth arithmetic problem?

The five numbers which appeared in 1922 were brave little birds. with lots of pep. and each successive appearance showed that our school paper was here to stay. The Connnenceinent Number of June. 1922. was in Magazine form. and it successfully forecasted our auspicious Senior Edition of June. 1923. The Staff has had a wonderful time keeping this inovenient moving. and we cheerfully. though reluctantly. each leave our posts. to our successors. To the new Staff of T923-1924. we're wishing every joy. and for "The Oriole." under their guidance, great and lasting success. MAXWELL R. SAFRA. 23. W Business Manager.

You must remember to keep my secret. as this is in strict contidence. Promise meal am sure you will. Last year t1Sl219. when I arrived at the State Normal School, l was. of course. as a drop in a bucket. tor there were many others just like me. The catalogue of the school had very proudly an- nounced in black and white that Tuesday, September the twelfth. was Registration Day! But where did you register? And what did you have to do? I guess well. Diary. and so l guess that only three people out of a hundred knew. and those three did well in regard to hiding themselves. The registrar was one of the three, bu tl found her in her hiding place-the otilice. after wading through a line a mile long. Then. to register! The tables were decked with application blanks and the other needed equipment. This sounds simple enough, but how can one write when there are sixteen people interested in having "next" on one 's chair? The pens. too. were even more scratchy than this one. But at last. I had successfully. CI thougbtl. tilled out the blank and was on my way to divest myself of a certain check. when. after playing peek-a-boo over my neighbor shoulder. l was able to see that her blank was iilled out differently! VVhat was I to do? Vilas she right or was I? There being no one to ask, Diary. l just natur- ally let it go. to my sorrow. VVhen the office force were less busy. I was dragged in for a lively discussion. Such is life. dear Diary, when there are no "Ask Me" girls. For fear that you will get a bad opinion of the Normal School. I will tell you privately. that Registration Day this year was very much nicer. even if it did fall on September thirteenth. Think of it! VVhen you entered the door an t'Ask Me" girl grabbed your arm and swung in step with you, ushering you up to the tables in the hall. You just couldn't go wrong. for someone was there. QI was there. Diaryl. Questions! Questions! "If I were born in 1905. how old ani I now?" "NVhat is the date of today?" "NVhat are the fees for? How much are they!" And lastly, Diary. a gallant young gentleman sighed. HI don 't know how to spell my religion," NVe girls rushed to his aid and found the desired word to be Episcopalian. lVould you have known how to spell that? The registrar was easily found and the fees disposed of. All things just came off finely! Now. for your opinion. dear Diary. Should I or should I not make September thirteenth a Red Letter Day? You know. there are many red letter days. even if I did not consult you about them. R. S. ALLEN. 65 . June T, 1922. Dear Diary: lt has been such a long time since l've written to you. but really. l've bee11 very busy. l'm so tired now, l can hardly write, but l just must tell you about the entertainment we, the Juniors, gave to the Seniors, today-just before they graduate tomorrow. l think we'll all agree it was a Red letter Day for all. Such a busy host of Juniors you never saw in your life as we were this morning! Some of us walked over to Rogers Forge to get ready for the "Country Fair." Tents, of bed sheets, were 1n- geniously made upon the trees,-large ones for the bigger events, and smaller ones for gypsy fortune tellers, vendors and side shows. Hy now. the fair grounds were in readiness. Meanwhile, more .luniors were back at the dormitory, preparing prizes for the running events, the prize baby show, and the favor booth, and oh, I mustn't forget the eats! Talk about fun! You should have seen the dignified Seniors being escorted by a "mamma" and "papa" Junior, with pockets full of paper money. They began to arrive about two o'clock, and then the big time began. "Papa, I wanna balloon!" "Mamma, gimme five cents to buy some popcorn!" HDaddy, please win me a baby doll!" could be heard on all sides, for the families were play- ing their parts well. Such happy confusion you can 't imagine, un- less you 've been to a real fair. One family was having its fortunes told by a gypsy in a tiny tent, another went to the minstrel show, where "colored gentlemen and ladies" made merry with song and dance. Another big attraction was the prize baby booth, where. if you were a good enough shot to put three balls in a box, you then became the proud possessor of a. gorgeous baby doll, which was really a lolly-pop with painted face and vari-colored crepe paper dresses. Another very attractive booth was the one where, with almost no effort, one might obtain a balloon, a bag of peanuts, a package of popcorn, bananas, apples and cool fruit, lunch. and pink lemonade. Then who'll ever forget the side-shows-the singing pygmies, only two and a half feet high, the spineless woman, and the sheik, who. late in the afternoon, came from his tent and strolled amidst the crowds, evoking loving remarks from most of the ladies present. Une of the best and most important events was the 'tTrip to Mars," way up on the hill. Here, adventure loving folks paid their ad- mission and were blindfolded. What really happened after that very few but the Hshow proprietors" know, They were told to sit beside the king upon a throne, which, quite unexpectedly. gave way under them. Then they passed on to a high, natural bridge, from which one misstep meant instant death on the 1'ocks below. Last and most thrilling was the "airplane" trip back to earth. This was really a fast trip in a laundry basket, on two slippery boards, down to the very bottom of the hill and then a "dump up." The people 66 who had taken the trip were allowed to stay in the tent and watch the other victims. NVill I ever forget the pleasant revenge we got, sending some of the faculty back to earth? It was worth the tired arms and legs. Or will a11y of us forget the various races staged just before supper. when the illustrious faculty and student body almost broke their necks for a pound box of candy? Or. and l'll mention this only to you dear Diary, the wading party. including Miss Timberlake, of which many snaps were taken. I just notice that l've used up nearly all the space allotted to June the seventh, but I must tell you about the picnic supper. Royal! That hardly describes it. Such heats" I never saw before. There were pickles, chicken salad. ice cream. deviled eggs. tomatoes. olives. candy. lemonade. rolls. "hot dogs." and oh. many more things which-I can't remember. even though it has been only three hours since I ate it all. The sun looked. as it set on the fair grounds. dotted with all sorts of groups. all eating and laughing or talking. I wonder if some of the girls and boys will ever forget what pleasant, opportunities Stevenson 's Woocls offer in the way of secluded wood- land nooks for farewell talks? After every one had eate11 all they could and a little more. songs were sung around tl1e tire. and then we walked wearily. but happily, home, gathering daises for decorations at Commencementi tomorrow. .f I've just had a cold shower and feel quite well. considering. Did we have a good time all together Juniors and Seniors? We 'll say we did! DOROTHY MCLYMAN. Saturday. December 9, 1922. Early morning of Saturday. December 9th, found loyal mem- bers of the Class of working in the auditorium. and all through the main hall. The very air seemed to vibrate with the tense feel- ing of excitement. Yes. you know. At least some of you do. Of course. it was the Decoration Committee. the bane of Virginiafs ex- istence. making ready for the Senior Thanksgiving Dance. They were working especially hard. and original ideas were floating in large proportions everywhereg in the hall. in the doors. on chairs, and tables, and even to the top of the tallest step-ladder. It was our first Senior dance. and we were going to prove to those members of that we were the very 'tlivest class" that had ever come to Normal. And, oh. how good it was to see them all coming back! The morning passed like winged lightning. We worked hard. More Seniors came to help out. and between times .we stopped to greet the Homecoming Alumna. Squeals of delight and yells of greeting were heard on every side. lVe all were Has happy as kings." We 67 missed some and asked about them. And will you believe it? Some we didn 't recognize at iirst sight. How could we? Why. they were decked out in all the glory ot their first three months' salary. New coats. hats. and shoes. "Dear me." we said. "Just wait until we begin to teach." At eleven o'elock. the Alumna found their way to the music room, where they had a little professional "Experience Meeting." which we afterward heard. was very enjoyable and profitable. both to them and to the members of the faculty, who met with them. When the meeting was over, each alumna. was escorted to lunch by a proud and happy Senior. At two o'clock lunch was served. It was "extra special" to celebrate the occasion, and we were all more than hungry. so you know we enjoyed it. The Auditorium and Hall never looked better than they did that night wit hthe artistic and elaborate decorations-crepe paper, palms. cozy furniture, and Huify pillows. Music, delicious punch, and a lively, good-looking crowd of Alumna and Seniors, finished the beautiful picture. What more could you want? Oh, it 's great to be a Senior at Normal School, when dancing time comes round! R. COLE. M. S. N. May 9, 1922. Dear Juniors: Aren't you getting excited about the Field Day, which is to be next week? We Seniors have noticed you practicing for it, and we are prepared to meet teams just as good as ours, so you may be sure that there will be plenty of well-matched events to keep every one interested. , You know, we can't help being' even more interested than you, For we have such pleasant memories of Field Day last year. Yes, that was truly a red letter day for the Class of '23, and if we had never been recognized as a superior class before, we certainly com- manded attention that day. for the '23 teams won every game of the meet. exeept speed ball, and by far the greatest number of points in the individual events. XVe were only Juniors then. and our opponents were Seniors, but the Class of '23 showed everyone that day what real spirit meant. Of course, we were proud of our stars -Anna De Ran. Louise Covington, Edna Kirby, and Isabel Stevens but far better than that was the pride in our class which we felt so strongly that day, and which even the boiling sun could not seorch away. One of the things we enjoyed most was having Miss Tall award the badges we had won. You know it always makes 0116 feel more eager to do something worthwhile when one knows that she is interested in it. and we certainly appreciated it when she took enough tim efrom her other duties to be with us for an hour. Then. too. we learned so many things that day that will be of .tse to us next year. The organization of events and refereeing, 68 which wc will need to know so much about for meets in our own schools, are much simpler to us now that we have seen the manner in which Miss t'ook and Miss Gatfaney managed it last year. 'Witli such memories, can you wonder why we are looking forward so eagerly to Field Day this year? We are certain that it will be just as enjoyable and profitable an occasion as it was last year, and we are working hard to hold the place we make then. However, we wish you all sorts of good luck, and hope that next. year you can look back on your Junior Field Day with as happy a feeling as we now do o11 ours. Sincerely, A MEMTBER OF 'Qi GOVERNOR'S DAY. "Get ready everybody, for the Governor's visit to us on No- vember 20th," were the words that echoed through our corridors during the fall months. Just why should the Governor come to visit us? Is there anyone else in the State that should know better than he just what kind of a dormitory we need here. how we live and just what we are trying to make the teaching profession stand for? As the Governor and other guests came into the auditorium, they were very enthusiastically greeted by the student body. ln introducing him to us, Miss Tall remarked that the only prepara- tion we had been able to make was taking' stock of conditions in and about Normal Schoolg whether they were such as would please the Governor and whether they were such as would please ourselves. The student body saluted the flag in his ht-nor, after which several children from the elementary school came up and took him down to see their school. After a short visit in the elementary school he was escorted back to the alumni rooms. where a buffet luncheon was served. The Governor felt that we, as teachers. have a great work to do and that the public school is the only absolutely vital factor in the welfare of the State. The children of today are the citizens of tomorrow, and they must be capably taught, not only the funda- mentals of education, but there must. be inculcated in them ideals of honesty. fairness toward all. an da desire to become one hundred per cent. efficient in everything. Of great importance in developing this attitude is the personality of the teacher. Teaching will then not only be a means of livelihood, but it will become something sacred-a profession. Wlieii our guests left every student felt a closer relationship with the States chief executive. and we really feel he was inter- ested in our cause and saw our many needs. XVe give three cheers for Governor's day, and may there be one each year at Normal! 69 RACHEL BARNES. CHRISTMAS AT M. S. N. S. Nvhen Mary Pringle wrote her hook, "Yule Tide in Many Lands," she neglected to mention how large schools celebrate this annual festival. Surely they have some form of activity, even though they are closed during the actual time of merryinaking. We of the Maryland State Normal SCKl0Ol have an annual custom of singing Lllll'1Sfl1l2lS tarols the night before leaving for the Christinas holidays, which brings us much real enjoyment, and many of the people of Towson have made us feel that they look forward to it with pleasure. ln our Junior year, the entire student body formed in front of Newell Hall, marched around to Miss Tall's residence, and from there made a tour of Towson, singing our carols as we went. The people of Towson had been notiiied, ot our proposed route and many were the homes with lighted candles in the windows, signifying that they would like us to carol for them. In spite of the warm clothing which we had been advised to wear ,all returned very chilly indeed, and glad of the comfort of warm radiators. . After a little warming up, the Newell Hall and Gymnasium Hall students assembled in the big dining room for the last party of the old year. The girls in Administration Hall were not invited, since they had had a party of their own a few days previous. Both parties were highly successful and the little gifts caused a great deal of inerriment. After everything had apparently quieted down for the night the Seniors sprung their annual surprise by forming a long line and parading through the halls, singing carols. Then they wenti outside a11d regaled Miss Tall, the boys, and the girls in Administra- tion Hall with their carols. We had scarcely quieted down from this Senior outburst, when the boys began. Personally, l know of nothing so inelodious as boys' voices, singing in harmony on a clear night, iirst from the distance, then coming closer until they were under our windows, then gradually drifting away again. This year we were afraid the custom of carol singing would have to be discontinued, owing to the illness of Miss Shurtz, but Miss Cooley came gallantly to our rescue and led us through with flying colors Qand flaming torchesl. For various reasons, it was decided to have the carol singing on the campus, and invite the public to hear us. ln front of Miss 'l'all's house, there is an evergreen tree, which seems to have spent its life growing for this special occasion. It is just the size and shape a llhristmas tree should be, and was soon selected by the come mittee composed of our electrician, Mr. Richardson, Miss Greenlaw, and several of the boys. The tree was wired and gaily lighted with vari-colored bulbs. A large star shone from the top. The tree was illuminated the night before the singing that all might see it, and the 70 night before we went home everyone assembled in front of the dor- mitory according to custom, lniss Vooley led the way to our beautiful tree, where our visitors gathered to hear us sing the story of L h1'istmas. After the singing we raced up the hill to the Administration Building, where we spent a gay evening in the Auditorium, dancing, playing games and receiving our Christmas gifts. Q Later in the evening when everyone was supposed to be in bed, we took our turn at surprising the Juniors, and l'm sure we enjoyed our Senior privilege even more than we had expected to when we looked forward to it as Juniors. Then came the boys' turn, this time with an orchestral ac- companiment, much liner than that of the year before. At last our celebration was over and we went to bed, the Seniors happily conscious that their attempts had been enjoyed and the Juniors already looking forward to their Senior days. PHYLLIS BUTTS. JUNIOR "I-IOP"-CLASS OF '23. The "Hop" is o11e event in the year, to which all Juniors look forward. The Junior 4'Hop." given last year by the Class of '23, was a great success. It afforded pleasure to everyone concerned. While many were dancing, others were playing cards and having a de- lightful time. All of those who were present realized the artistic ability of the decorating comniittee, when they saw the Maroon a11d Grey beautifully draped about the hall and corridors. The music which was rendered by Mfr. Schoenfelder and his orchestra. gave you a feeling that you could dance all night, instead of dancing to HHome Sweet Home" at eleven o'clock. I feel sure that the Junior "Hop" of this year was just as dear to the Juniors of '21, as the Junior "Hop" of last year was ro the Class of '23. ERNEST L. BARTLES.

It was night and a dying tire made plainly visible the interior of a miserable room. Its walls and tioor were bare: a bed was drawn forward for warmth: a table at its foot and a low broken- bottomed rocking chair before the hearth, completed its furniture. Outside. the snow was falling fast. and the wind moaned. while at intervals the dull howl of dogs proclaimed that darkness had not. entirely quieted the sounds of the disturbed world. A womans figure moved to the side of the bed. restlessly. but quietly. She was fair and young. yet it was a task al.nost beyond her strength to attempt. to lay her hand upon her only son for fear he would not be there. Fortunately. she found him still snug in his bed, and she quickly stole away, back to her room. Wiliiiont had not slept a wink all night. His thoughts were with his college friends, who were going to leave for the training camp the next day. He had not been given per-,nission to go. but. knowing that it was his duty. he had decided that night to accom- pany his friends. ln the morning, without 'a word of warning. he went off to college, where the boys had been training. He departed with the idea of never returning. The old bell, high up in the college helfry. that had once sunnnoned the students to their daily labors. and had tolled out the Angelus for nearly a hundred years. was silent now and in its place the notes of the bugle voiced the call to duty. Outside was all the bustle and noise of the camp.-the boys preparing to leave- within the building was the quiet and hush of the house of da-ith. Some days previously, hurried word had eeine for the boys to leave for the training camp. The day was at hand. and a tall. broad-shouldered student. with dark hair. stood by an open window of the study hall gazing out into space. At the sound of the bugle call the hot blood rushed to his pale face and tears dimmed his large. black eyes. Wiliiioiit tapped him on the back and said in a low, quivering tone, t't"o1ne. my dear friend. we must be off. the time has now arrived. This morning I left without saying a last fare- well to my mother. for she was unwilling for me to go and-" Clint turned towards him. his piercing eyes staring him squarely in the face. "You disobedient, ungrateful scamp. disgrace stares you in the face! Never speak to me again." Wiliiioiit. his blood boiling and angry with his most intimate friend. walked otf and joined his company. At last, the gay crowd of young soldiers boarded the Flyer and they were off at a minute's notice. for the camp. After a short journey they reached the camp, and were introduced to their new surroundings. Then came the bustle and noise of the camp again. The following day they were ready for their hard. yet enjoyable training. This drilling lasted only two months. W'ord came for them to leave for France. VVith this news came shouts and cries 77 of joy, especially from Wilmont, who had now become an otticer. This. by the way, had caused Clint to despise him more and more. Tl1e last evening in New York was spent by the boys discuss- ing the wonderful prospects of their trip across. A chilly, drizzling rain was falling and they were off to their bunks at a11 early hour so they could rise early on the morning of departure. But Clint knew all was over and his manifestations of sorrow and distress made things unhappy for all. tflint was sitting on his bunk with his face half buried in his hands. and as Wilmont looked at him. he longed to go and cheer him up. but he dared not advance a step. On the day of departure. a display of patriotic daring was witnessed. The scene was indescribable. The morning was brightt and cool. the water was calm. in short. everything was favorable for sailing. Now, that the soldiers were aboard, a day of relaxation from the rigorous routine of drill was given them. Orders were given for them to engage in sports and amuse themselves in such sports as they chose. The men. released from the toilsome duties which for weeks had pressed upon them to the entire exclusion of everything like pleasure. entered upon the enjoyment of the occasion with the keenest zest. Fiddles were produced and while in one part ot' the ship dancing was going on, in another part groups sur- rounded VVilmont, their singer. who. to the accompaniment of an old fiddle. was singing songs of home. Others were writing to their mothers. their sweethearts. but Clint sat leaning over the Bible his mother had given him before her death. Some lounged about. some said nothing, others thought nothing. The routine of the ship proceeded monotonously, making the days pass slowly and more slowly. There was no thought or pre- sentiment of the awful scene so soon to present itself, but it is always the unexpected that happens. Suddenly the scene was changed. In the twinkling of an eye. every man was filled with excitement. A submarine had disabled their ship, but it was too far away to do much damage. In the uproar, the Captain glanced out into the water and spied two iigures battling for life. Those safe on board could hear some 0116 saying, 'tSave me, Wiliiiontl Save me!" The only answer was "I will try." 'Alt is Wiliiiont and ti'li11t," came the sudden cries from aboard. ttWe must save them." Life savers were thrown out and since the boys were drifting toward the ship 's side. they grabbed the savers. 'ln a few seconds they landed both safely on board. Night had fallen and only the conversation between NVilmour and Flint broke the deep. midnight stillness. "Forgive me, Wiliiloiit, may we never have cause to he angry with one another again. I owe my life to you." NVith these words he fell, as though lifeless, on his bed. and Wllll101lf kissed him good night without the least feeling of ill-will towards him. 78 They reached France safe and sound after a few days, and their first abode was Paris. At sunrise they could hear the noise of battle, the tire of the German guns approaching nearer and nearer. They were ordered to the trenches. Here and there they could see hundreds lying around, horribly mutilated by the shot a11d shell. These sights only spurred them on. In a very hard struggle, some were killed, others slightly hurt, but Wi'lmont was seriously wounded, and no doubt would have died in the trenches if Clint had not seen to it that he was taken to a hospital. For six months Wilmont lay pale and wan in the hospital. flint never failed to come and see him during his spare minutes. The end of the year had come, yet Wilmont stirred not from his bed, until one cold evening tlint whispered to l1i1n, t'Wilmont, when do you leave for home?" He answered slowly, "Don't mention it. God only knows when I shall ever look upon the faces of the loved ones at home. I have been thinking, thinking, if, when I should return, llly mother would receive me as her only son. I fear-" Clint eagerly interrupted. "As soo11 as you are able to get out of your bed, we are going to leave for the good cld U. S. A. Cap- tain Reynolds told me today that we had been so faithful and had fought so well, that we deserved a reward, and that it should be a trip home. XVe are given three weeks. Think of it, W'ilmont. I have no home to go to, but you, you have!" 'Wilmont did not seem to breathe. but there was upon his face a deep smile, one of joy, of gratitude. ln a few weeks he was able to leave. Oh, what a joyful trip across the ocean! After landing, NVilmont hurried to his home, Clint accompanying him. For a whole year Wilmont's mother had been praying for her hoy's return and i11 the dim twilight, as she sat by the glowing fire- place, there came a sound beside the noise of the storm without, it was a sound of footsteps, a hand upon tl1e latch, the door was pushed open, letting in a blinding rush of s11ow and icy air. Before the motionless iigure in the chair stood her boy. She sat, oh, so still. but at his touch the blood leaped to her cheeks, and giving a cry of joy so sharp that it rang on the air, she fell forward on his breast. For many minutes they remained without sound or motion, lost in the rapture of their reunion, and only the raging storm outside broke the golden silence within. 1 At last he drew away from her and looked into her face. Wlie1'e were the fair and youthful features he had left behind him -where, the bloom and brightness? As he gazed at her he seemed to see death written on her face. She kissed him and said, HMy dear boy, I am very happy. God has bee11 good, he has heard my prayerg he has brought you back to me." With this she sank ex- hausted in her chair. 79 He went on talking in the wild hope of rousing her. i'W0lllLl you like to hear how I passed this long year away from you? lt's a long, long. story ot marches and battles, with sometimes victory, sometimes defeat, with cold and hunger and fatigue and inntunerable hardships. but we were soldiers, fighting for our country's good. and we did not complain. The hardest of all to bear was the ab- sence from home. without hearing a word. I was wounded and in the hospital, but l came out as strong as ever." , He knelt beside her, she held out her arms to him, whispering: "My boy"-and then passed into another world. Wilmont now had very little to live for, except his country. After a few days stay, he and Clint, closer friends than ever, boarder The ship which carried them back to France and service. , SADIE UHLER, Sr. I. SELF SATISFACTION. l wish I were possessed of talents which might enable me to conquer that great menace to human society, known as self satis- faction. How much more we might accomplish if this demon did not have such influence over us! Some of us, to a greater extent than others, yield to his ever-increasing power, but even over the most ambitious persons he has some control. Of course, we can't all be leaders in our respective fields, but we can desire to be. It is easy enough to repeat what someone else has done, so why not have a little initiative of our own and start something original ourselves? Let us retiect for a moment on the familiar scene of a country village. In front of the village grocery we find the town constable. l do not mean to cast any reflection on such an important position as this citizen holds, but l should like to use him as an illustration of what l am driving at. There he sits on the old familiar soap box, shoes half laced with old broken twine, socks ungartered and hang- ing loosely about his shoe tops. He is gazing intently at nothing and chewing his cud of tobacco by the same old motion he learned when he was a boy, from the old cow. Then we think to ourselvesg why couldn't that man have been a11 engineer, a professor in a. university, or for that matter, even the president of the United States? Didn't he have the brain? lJidn't he have the opportunity to go to public school and from there to college? Then comes the answer ..... He was making a living. He was satisfied with himself. He had no other objective. He had nothing to tight for. He had no goal ahead, no desire What- ever, to progress, but just to sit there on that old soap box day in :-nd day out and run opposition to the old con across the road. Let us 11ow consider a man of the opposite typeg a. man of ambition and determination. There is no character in history who 80 better represents this type than Alexander the Great. This lllilll. whose ideals surmounted his every difticulty. when he was victorious in battle. and was successful in putting to tlight the mighty host of Persians. did he conclude his con ,uests here? Did he accept the peace proposal of Darius. which offered the Euphrates as a boun- dary line between the Persians and the Greeks. and live happily ever after? No! And when advised to do so by his counselor. Parmenio. he tore the proposal into shreds and made turther preparations. not only for the subjugation of the Pt-rsians. but for a world empire. dominated by Greek civilization. NVhat is the objective of each member of the student body? Each ot us has a purpose in coming here to school. To be sure. some have higher aims than others. but every one has that incentive to climb to the highest possible round of the ladder. Fo then. while we have the opportunity to advance toward our ambition. let us make the best of our chances. Do not be con- tent with being a satellite: be a star of the tirst magnitude. Let us shine through our deeds. through our bodily efforts. through our mental attainments. and above all. through the vision of our spir- itual eye. J. S. PRICE.

One might truthfully say he was a model of Atlas. on whose shoul- ders. they the world rests. ln the stern sat his opposite. a cleane shaven stalwart so11 of Old England. One could not put forward a single word against the statement that Hblue blood " ran in his veins. Hour after hour the two sat there, never speaking. but ever watchful for a friendly sail over the boundless horizon. At last the dirty coal-heaver moved and spoke. "VvThat'a we got for grub?" The animal instinct had won. Silently. the Englishman moved and took from a haversack thrown over his back. a drink of brandy apiece. and two hardtack biscuits. The sailor took his share and hastily put it away. while the Englishman ate slowly. watching the while.. the sailors animal actions. The day passed slowly. but with the coming of night a speck appeared on the horizon. closely resembling a hugh point on a coast line. Only the Englishman saw it. As night drew rapidly on. it soon faded from sight. 81 Tl1e 00432111 became quiet illltl u11der the starry canopy of the skies. tl1e little boat sped gaily along, blown by the warm South winds. ls it illly wonder lllilt llI1tlt'l' such circumstances these men's thoughts, though widely different in character, sl1o11ld seek expres- sion!

No sleep that night! Dawn came. day passed and night once more, and before the dawn of a l'1OtllEl' day the college H1311 had on his hands. a stark. raving maniac. Wearily and with weakened hand l1e guided tl1e boat towards a distant object. which rapidly took on tl1e form of an island. The sailor soon passed from the maniac stage, to one of a dead stupor, and fell on the floor of the boat. Unmindful, the llB1I11SlllEll1 kept on a11d just as tl1e golden dusk of the tropical sun plunged into the ocean, beached l1is boat. Dead with weariness, l1e managed to get l1is companion ashore before he fell asleep. exhausted. On awakening. he found his companion in a. delirious condi- tion.

Thank God they were seen- a boat put out to tl1e SllOl't'. Ellld scrambling lTONVl1 the hill they started for tl1e beach. Just then a band of savages burst forth from the forest in 82 wild pursuit of the fleeing men. In another moment the Englishman fell, breaking his leg. "Go on, go on." he cried. "Save yourself." The sailor clambered down the steep elitf, hurrying as fast as he could. Suddenly he stopped. VVhat took place in his mind we know not, but immediately he climbed up the torturous path again to the fallen man. The savages could easily be heard breaking through the brush. Grasping his burden, he quickly lowered himself once more. Arrows fell near the struggling figure. but still he kept on. At last, when he thought he could go no further, strong hands gathered him and his burden, hurriedly placed them in a boat,-in blessed. beloved safety once more. "I knew it was in you, 'blue hlood,' " said the Englishman. "Hah!" was the reply. I leave it to you. XVhat was it? DONALD DAVIES. Sr. IV. HOW THE VIOLET GOT ITS PURPLE COAT. Once upon a time all the violets which grew on this earth were white. One day little Sue, who had big brown eyes and beau- tiful curls, went skipping down to the woodside to play. Here, warm sunshine sifted through cool shade: there was a gurgling, drowsy brook, and best of all, there were many spring flowers already blossoming. Sue gathered many blossoms and was just going to go home when she found a large patch of white violets. Soon the violets felt themselves being torn from their Mother stem and they thought they would die. Indeed, some of them were smothered from being so close together away from air. llut when they were taken into a cozy little room and placed in some cool, sparkling water, they began to revive. They looked about and saw an old lady, who was saying in a very weak voice, "How these sweet little violets do cheer me, and make me cease thinking about my trou- blesl" After this the violets did not mind their fate so much, until they began getting weaker and weaker. and just as all such flowers do, they died and were thrown away. As soon as the old lady missed the flowers, she asked Sue to get her some more. The little girl hurried off to the woodside, but. found no violets. She returned to her grandmother with a sad face. but grandmother said, 'tNever mind. Susie dear, you may look again tomorrow. and probably some more will have opened." The next day Sue visited the violet patch again, but was no more suc- cussful than before. By this time, Mother Nature had heard the story. Immedi- ately she flew off to the woodside and called to the violet plants. 'LAre there any of you who have not bloomed this spring?" A At first there was no answer, for the violets who had not bloomed, knew what had happened to their brothers and sisters. 83 Mother Nature was just about to fly away. when a tiny voice called.. "l am just getting ready to blossom." f "You are very brave." said Mother Nature. "and I shall reward you for your bravery. Hereafter. all your flowers shall be a royal purple instead of white." NVith that she vanished. and from that day to this. there have been purple violets with golden crowns. Emma NVQ-EISS, Sr. I. THE VALLEY. The day was fast drawing to a close as we started up the long. rocky slope which led to the jagged proznontory above. O11 we struggled until our very hearts seemed like trip hammers pound- ing against our breasts. At last we reached the top and the sunlit valley. with all its splendors burst open before our eyes like the dooi' of some huge furnace suddenly opened. Hundreds of feet below us it lay stretching away into infinite space. like a huge, green, carpet. indented here and there with fields of waving, golden grain or tasseled corn. like some delicate pattern of art. Here and there a solitary cabin stood. the sentinel of civilization in that lonely, secluded spot. I11 the distance. the slow. meandering river seemed to reflect the beauty of the place as it went murmuring softly on its way. Over all, the crimson beams of the sun just sinking in the IVest'. seemed to throw a magic wand of gold, enriching the whole scene. and. striking the rippling water at :1 thousand different angles. reflected its rays like myriads of diamonds.

Md. WHY IS THE ORIOLE? The Oriole, our school paper, came into existence in January, 1922, and has grown each month since, not only in the quantity and quality of its contributions, but also in its circulation. This paper is the students own, it was named by them, is published through their efforts, and, from the beginning has been self-supporting because-of the loyalty and good work of the student body and alumni in securing subscriptions and adver- tisements. Last year we published from ten to twelve pages monthly as well as a. special Senior Magazine number, consisting of one hundred pages of choice subject matter, car- toons drawn by students, together with most excellent pictures depict- ing the personnel and interesting ac- tivities of the school. Another worth while magazine number was that sponsored by the faculty. ' Our paid circulation at present is nearly four hundred, ranging, g90gl'aD111C3-HY. from Maryland to Washington and California. 1 The students aim, through this publication, to advertise the Normal .

The chief purpose of this was to make the new juniors more familiar with -ii I MEETING or ALUMNI Asso- I I MAL SCHOOL. About 50 people, alumni of the Maryland State Normal School, and others interested in the cause of ed- ucation, attended a meeting held in the Armory. Bel Air, last Saturday afternoon. The meeting was larger and more enthusiastic than last year. Miss Scarborough, from the Nor- mal School, urged upon all gradu- ates and any who had ever attended the school, the importance of be- coming members of the Association. Another speaker advised every mem- ber to subscribe to the school pa- per, The Oriole, in order to keep in touch with the school doings and its graduates. ,the senior class and the members of the faculty. By 8 o'clock the large auditorium was comfortably filled There were some visitors, most of whom came to see the main feature of the evening. the play "The Maker of Dreams." "The Maker of Dreams," as you all probably know. was the Normal -Society play in The Literary contest last year. As the clock in the tower struck eight, a hush of expectancy settled 'over the audience. Every one sat tense, waiting. I Miss Gorsuch sang three numbers which served to break the iceg so to speak. She was accompanied by Miss McEachern, the new music teacher. -V ,. , V I Then Miss Osborn told a very in- evening! The fame of the play had been heralded and its coming was eagerly awaited. I think I can say that no one was disappointed. From the first to the ringing down of the curtain the whole attention of the audience was on the play. Vvhen the play was finished, all helped to clear away the seats and games were begun. Every one made a circle and "Luby Loo" and "Farm- er in the Dell", held sway for some time. ' Now the best part of the evening came: refreshments. A corps of Normal lassies served ice cream and cakes to the great enjoyment and gustatory satisfaction of the guests. Last of all. we danced. Several obliging ,alumni played the piano and the strains of "Beale Street Mama." "Wonderful One" and many other reigning favorites rang through the Auditorium. Everyone danced. We were all very sorry when "Home, Sweet Home" was rendered. but we could say-it was the end of a perfect evening. There are four things that come not back: the spoken word-, the sped arrow, the' past life, and the neg- lected opportunity.

It is our true and tried friend, for it never fails us when in trouble, it solves many problems of our school life, and it can give us untold pleasure. We enter. A busy scene presents itself, notwithstanding the golden word "Silence" on the outside. I want you to meet Miss Osborn,l our very capable Librarian, and Missg Holt, the Lssistant. Now, Het us' look around! As we stroll, we see rows upon rows of books arranged by the open shelf system. There are over 7,0001 'volumes, used for reference and reading through the day, and circu- lating for over-night use. Are these not a splendid collection for our M.l S. N. S.? Oh, here are some new ones ar- ranged on a table. Let us pause a while and examine a few. This- "Janice Meredith" by Ford, is a Equaint. sweet story, and here are "The Three Musketeers" by Dumas,j and "The Old Wives' Tale" by Ar- inold Bennett. "The Casting Away of Mrs. Lecks and Mrs. Aleshine,", sounds interesting, as does alsol "John Halifax, Gentleman," by Miss Mulock. Here are some new works on "The Art of Home Decoration," by North- end and three new volumes on trav-N el by John T. Faris. Don't miss "Poems from Life" compiled by Oli- ver Herford. They are great. Since you are teaching this year, I am sure you will be interested in these new books of juvenile litera- ture. Howard Pyle's "Book of Pir- ates" is Wonderfully illustrated. The "Burgess Animal Book" is one of 'fe best of its kind and also Sara Cone Bryant's "Stories to Tell the Littlest Ones." You would really, enjov reading "The Magic Flshbonen bv Charles Dickens, and "The Ara- bian Nights," edited by Kate Douglas Wiggin. The six volumes of "My Book House" are quite a treat to both children and grown-ups. You must go so soon? Well, l'm sorry. but do come back next month. and l will tell you some more. EVA MOCAULEY. DOINGS OF SENIOR THREE. Ralph S. Falconer. When Normal opened in Septem- ber. exerv one of the old members of Sr. III, except two. returned. Our ranks were further augmented by nine irregular seniors. seven girls and two boys. who came to us after they had had a year or more experi- ence in teaching. and thus were able 1 enter nur Senior Class. Senior Three is going to take ai great part in all the school activi- 'ties this year. Our boys are on the soccer team, and of ,-course wthere will be some from Sr. III on the oth- er teams. There are girls from Sr. III in every branch of the schoo1's activities. We are nearly all paid up on our athletic dues, and I am proud to say that Sr. III was the first section to have 10005, fully paid subscriptions to The Oriole. In the newly or- ganized Dramatic Club about one- fifth of the members are from Senior III. Watch this club make a name 'for itself! Our section advisor is Miss Van :Bibber and we have our class meet- ing once a week. We are very grate- ful to Miss Van Blbber for her aid jand her kind co-operation in every- thing that has arisen. One of our schemes is taking sub- scriptions to The Baltimore Sun. Wlhen we have secured 100 sub- scriptions, our revenue will be about S3 orS4 per week. We are now well on the way to over 100 sub- scriptions. Everyone is urged to subscribe because the newspapers will be used by both Senior and gJunior classes in The Current Events classes. On Wednesday evening, October 3. we entertained our sister section, Jr. Ill, on a hike to Stevenson's woods. There were about fifty stu- dents present and two faculty mem- bers, Miss Van Bibber and Miss Sammis. The truck driver for the school very kindly took the "eats" out and also an advance delegation to prepare "the fatted calf." About 5.30 the main body arrived, tired and hungry, and after very few preliminaries "fell to." There was a blazing fire to roast the hot dogs and marshmallows. We had apples, potato chkips and coffeef?l. Two very ambitious young ladies walked about a mile for water for the cof- fee, but when they got back there was no water in the can. They had not reckoned on the bottom of the pail being like a sieve. However, they had exercise. which is always welcome. When every one had eaten all that was possible, we all gathered around the fire and made the woods ring with songs, old and new. About 8.30 we hiked back along old York road, gleaming in the moonlight, till old Normal appeared once more to our eyes. It was an evening of pleasure to all. Miss Carley-Beg pardon, but what is your name? Lillian Lloyd--There's my signa- ture. Miss Carley-That's whatiaroused my curiosity. ' THE ORIOLE Page 3 J OTTINGS FROM OUR PRIN- CIPAL. By a Cub Reporter. Miss Tall had been prepared for my visit, and after greetings were passed on, we got down "to busi- ness." "Well, well, what shall I say?" asked Miss Tall, after we had both settled ourselves in the large and cheerful office which she occupies. "Anything, Miss Tall," I replied, as I watched a smile play around her lips, and finally burst forth into a happy laugh. "First of all," she began, "I want the students here to know that I really and truly am interested in everything that goes on in ours school. If we want to begin where we left off, we'll have to begin with June, won't we?" "What has this summer done for us?" And I tried to think what it had done, but just couldn't seem to get anywhere. Miss Tall continued: "Shall we call the incidents of the summer, 'Summer jottings, or jot- tings of the Summer?' " So here they are "Jottings of the Summer" just as Miss Tall saw them, and wants us to see them. HJOTTINGS OF THE SUMMER, HJR." "We held the regular summer ses- sion this year and at the close, the graduating class had a commence- ment, which was very much their own. Miss Gorsuch led the singing, the Class made a very attractive pic- ture in their simple white dresses. After the Commencement exercises a special supper was given in the grduates' honor at the Dormitory." Mr. Cook, in his address to the graduating class, which included seventeen irregular seniors of last year's class, said that he thought that the term "Irregular Senior" was a synonym for the "finest type of business person with whom he had ever come in contact." He thinks that any person who has enough business foresight to give up his position in order to broaden and stabilize his education, and thereby gain an increase in his salary, with a first grade certificate, when he takes up his old position, is, in the highest sense, worthy of the title he has so kindly given them. Miss Tall sailed for Paris, France, on the 9th day of August. Her trip was, in a certain sense, a "flying one," Her ship docked at Havre. and she spent the nine days before sailing for home, in Paris. Among the things which her trip accom- plished for her was a sharpening of the impressions she received from her first visit, twelve years ago. Another thing. Her trip has l r The man who 'the man who is made her decide that all her winter reading will be on books of Paris. Upon her return, on the 6th of September, she was plunged into the work of reopening our school for the fall session. Another jot of interest which we see every day, is the beginning of the construction work on the Sarah E. Richmond Dormitory. If all goes xell, we will see the completion of this building about April the first, of this school year.. This brings us up to the opening of our school. "What are your impressions "of us?" I as
