MAIN BUILDING. historical Sketch j HE Slate Normal Seliool of the First District was created by the Legislature in 1870, located at Kirksville in Adair County and opened as a State Institution, January 2, 1871. Adair County voted $100,000 to secure the location of the School. The present building and campus cost about $150,- 000. The Legislature of 1901 appropriated $30,000 for a new build¬ ing. Plans have already been adopted by the Board of Regents. The new building will contain a library room 38 by 60 feet, a gymnasium of the same size, eight rooms for the training school, offices for the President and Board of Regents and four large recitation rooms for Normal School classes. The first faculty of the institution contained three men who have become distinguished in the educational world, Dr. J. Baldwin, Prof. W P. Nason, and Dr. J. M. Greenwood. While these men constituted Ihe faculty this was the most noted Normal School of the Mississippi Valley. Dr. Baldwin resigned in 1878 to take charge of the State Normal School of Texas. After ten years as President of that institu¬ tion he was promoted to the professorship of Pedagogy of the Univer¬ sity of Texas at a salary of $5,000 a year. Thirty years in three great institutions. Such was the honored career of this one of Missouri’s great men. Dr. Baldwin died on the 13th day of January, 1899. The venerable Prof. Nason is still an honored citizen of Kirksville. Dr. Greenwood after more than a quarter of a century as superintendent of the Kansas City schools is known to be one of the most popular school men in the United States. He is a great scholar, a contributor to many magazines and papers and in great demand as a public lecturer from New England to the Pacific coast. The graduates of this school have from the very outset taken high rank. Two of them now hold the office of State Superin¬ tendent, Hon. W. T. Carrington in Missouri and Hon. Thomas J. Kirk in California. Two others of its graduates also held that high office, Hon. W. E. Coleman was for eight years State Superintendent of Missouri; Hon. John R. Kirk for four years State Superintendent of Missouri. The administration of the School is of tin 1 most vigorous kind. This institution is the first Normal School of Missouri to es¬ tablish a Kindergarten, Manual Training, an Agricultural Laboratory, and Departmental Libraries. It is the first Normal School of the state to send out a graduating class with four years of training in Latin, there being in the class of 1901 34 students who are finishing their fourth year in that subject. The school gives four years in English, four in Mathematics, four in its four laboratories of Science, two in History, one each in Drawing, Elocution and Music. Its Training School exemplifies the best things done in the best organized schools of the country. Academically and Pedagogically the institution is well equipped. It has a strong, progressive Faculty. Its watchword is, “To attain educational leadership.” presidents of the Institution. DR. J. BALDWIN, 871-78 HON. J. P. BLANTON, 1878-91 DR. W. D.

C HE Junior class of 1901 first came into existence as the Sophomore class of 1900—a class which will long be remembered. We organized early in the year 1899, and from that time on, our history was but a series of triumphs. To enter into a complete account of these is not necessary. One of the most n otable of them was our battle with the Juniors of that day—now the most honorable Seniors. We had a banner—it was stolen—it was returned. But why enter into details that are harrowing even yet to those vanquished Juniors. Suffi¬ cient to say that, at the close of the battle, our friend, the enemy, were as humble as Uriah Heep’s mamma ever desired him to be, and that they have continued so unto the present day. The Sophomore graduating class was one of the largest and strongest in the history of the school. Many of it’s members were so urged by per¬ sistent school boards that they at last accepted positions, hence, the Junior class of 1900-1901 was necessarily much smaller. It has grown steadily throughout the year, now numbering about forty, most of these expect to return in September for the Senior year work. In the earlier part of the year, w r e were tendered a most pleasant recep¬ tion by the Seniors, and later returned the compliment, both occasions being much enjoyed by members of the tw r o classes. In closing, it may be of some inter¬ est to note that the last official act of the Junior class was the adoption of resolutions indorsing most highly the administration o f President Kirk, and asking for his re-election. JUNIOR CLASS. x (Photo by Moore) T3o the Seniors Some critics have said, in books I have read, That sorrow inspires sweetest song; It’s rude to dispute these men of repute, But really I’m sure they are wrong. For I’ve tried to write of our feelings to-night. On bidding you Seniors adieu. And this rhyme of mine would be most divine, If that theory only were true. For we’re sorry you know to see all of you go, Our grief is indeed most sincere, Though the Faculty say not to grieve so, that they Will see some of you come back next year. But despite all they say, our grief still holds sway, Some of you have been here so long, That when you have passed from the Normal, at last, It will seem as if land marks were gone. And the Faculty, too, what on earth will they do, Without you, their guide and their stay, Though they bear it so well that you never could tell. How grief on their spirits must weigh. But the truth to confess, we all wish you success, We believe you will set the world right; And I’m free to say that the Juniors, to-day, Will be filled with the wildest delight— If just a wee bit of the wisdom and wit, Which endear you to all the Professors, Will only decernl, and some small value lend To us, your unworthy successor. —Maud Kennen.

Randall Tilden Powell HE Sophomores of 1901 are a hale and hapj y band, They the sinew and bone of the school. 1 may the faculty be proud of them and well may we be proud that we are Sophomores. Many of the Juniors and Seniors, preceding the broadness of the foundation upon 34 THE MNAMEION. which we are building- and realizing the narrow base upon which they were standing , have descended the ladder and here and there they are to be seen among us “patching ” their structures in order that they may be able to cope with us in life’s building . The verdent Freshmen look with longing to the time when they will be Sophomores. To these we say “Look up, press onward and some day you may sit in high places.” The Seniors are great people in school in many ways but the Sopho¬ mores are greater in most ways. For example: The Seniors could easily beat the Sophomores at base¬ ball, but when the score counted 11 to 9 in favor of Sophomores the Seniors hung their heads and refused to be comforted. ' We shall have to concede to the Seniors the honor of beine the more disorderly in class. For proof see Prof. G. Prof. G. hardly ever has to get after the Sophomores, although occasionally when we are entering the class room he will be heard to rap upon the desk with his knife and say: “l fear some of you do not realize the sacredness of this place.” And again, sometimes, when he has lab- bored diligently to explain some con¬ struction and asks (Miss WaLer)? to then explain it and gets the reply “ I can’t”, he is heard to exclaim that his words like the roses in the desert, “Are born to blush unseen and lose their fragrance on the desert air”. I have heard Prof. G. intimates once or twice when Jennie failed to answer that “Possibly she had too many subjects. ” Look over our roll and become acquainted with the names which in the future will carry off the honors of this institution and mount to the dizzy height of fame. Great Scott! What variety of size, age, weight, wit, gen¬ ius and style of beauty w e exhibit. A phrenologist would go into raptures over our craniums and a Darwin would be abp to write many learned and convincing treaties on his pet theory. Our class is a golden crown studded with gems; each member is a “jewel” and as the jewel glitters in the sun¬ light, dazzling the eyes almost to blindness w ith its brilliancy, so shall w r e. As a spectator I see them one by one mounting the ladder of fame ; on and on, gradually, by degrees, until the topmost summit is reached at last and not one has tallcn i » he wayside.

The preamble to the constitution ■dates that the organization of the Freshman class is “Effected for the purposes of mutual improvement md instruction,” The chief aim of he class at all times has been to make ill who attend feel that they are imong fellow students who can appre- :iate their peculiar troubles in their )wn classes. The social nature has oeen appealed to in many ways and ve seem to have attained a great legree of success in making school Peasant for all who have been with us. The general impression seems to be that the organization cultivates the social nature in the best way pos¬ sible. Owing to the facts that the lit¬ erary work has been light rather than burdensome and also that no taxes were assessed, the support has been such as any organization might v T ell be proud to claim. All literary work has been voluntary and the excellence of programs and the large attendance during the entire year, has been the wonder and surprise of less fortunate movements. The Freshman class has been characterized by an unbound¬ ed enthusiasm which has swept all opposition before it and left would be rivals hopelessly in the rear. FRESHMAN CLASS.

As a result of this, the ler students of the Normal were newhat surprised on a certain fine ►rning in December 1900, to see )ut fifty Freshmen ready to attend the duties planned. A very inter- ing feature was a class song com¬ bed and set to music by one of our mber. Whether these exercises re a success or not remains for lers to declare. It seemed to cas- l observer that other classes were newhat slow in following the exam- i set them. After the lapse of a v ag es the worthy Junior class empted to fill the shoes so long serted, but have not yet registered 5 complaint that said shoes were ) small. After a few cy cles of time d come and g one, it beg an to dawn on our worthy Sophomores that ssibly it might be to their credit to low even so far behind. About the st thing done was to make sure that body would ever discover the mighty ret. The wily red man moves t more cautiously toward the nted hart than did our friends upon day which meant so much to them, hen the smoke had cleared away, :er the crash had reverberated own the ages, the simple query esented itself. 44 Where did you t your class song?” Our friends were also somewhat surprised to know that their wonderful secret had been common property for some time previous. The Freshman class continued to hold its meetings each Thursday afternoon for the remainder of the semester. A class reception was held on the evening of the last Satur¬ day of the first semester. In prepar¬ ation for this a number of committees had been appointed to attend to mat¬ ters usually connected with occasions of the kind, the entertainment com¬ mittee met a number of times and devised games of various kinds. The reception was held in the Senior and Zetosophian halls of the Normal. Those present participated in the various games with a degree of enthusiasm that made the reception a delightful success. At that time a number of new Freshmen were here preparatory to entering school the second semester. A committee made it a point not to have any “wall¬ flowers” present and if any seemed inclined to stand apart from the rest, they soon received urgent invitations to engage in the various games. At this opportune time many were made to feel that they were not “strangers in a strange land” but that they were among friends who could fully sym¬ pathize with them. Each young lady prepared a souvenier that she consid- 40 THE MRAMEION. ered appropriate for a voung gentle¬ man, and the young gentlemen did the same for the young ladies. At the close of the reception, the young gentlemen’s souvenirs were placed in one box and the young ladie’s souv¬ enirs in another. To each souvenir a string was tied and these souvenirs were drawn by means of the exposed strings, the young ladies choosing from the young gentlemen’s box and vice versa . Needless to say, these souvenirs are highly prized in mem¬ ory of a pleasant occassion. As a result of this gathering many severe cases of homesickness were thor¬ oughly cured before they had reached a critical stage. It served as a very pleasant farewell to those who could not be with us the remainder of the year and as a cordial welcome to those just beginning work with us. The second semester the programs have been held each Thursday after¬ noon and have been of great variety, the aim being, in the main, something that would be pleasing and helpful rather than heavy and abstract. One feature that furnished a part of the program for about two months was a continued story of an imaginary I to China and return, in a submar boat. The story was handled b; different writer at each meeting a it is unnecessay to add that ma peculiar and unusual incider occurred during the course of trip.

Dr a time the society met in one of the ass rooms, then was given a bare room the third story, part of the hall they w occupy. Bit by bit it was furnish - l until now it is one of the prettiest ills in the building. The hall is in the rtInvest corner of the building. A w years ago the old hall became too nail for the number of members, so a nail room on the east was given over » the society and an arch-way put in ul the room furnished equally as nice ; the old hall. There is a moquet car- t on the floor, a piano, book case and sk, chairs, tables, bust, pictures, and irtains. The colors of the soeiety are irried out as well as may be in thedec- •ations of the hall. The name of the society, Zetosophian, a word coined by its founder. The eaning of the word has always symbol- ed its members as seekers after wisdom. The first meeting of this year was held sptember 7, 1900, with Eugene Fair as •esident, F. B. Nance as vice-president, iss Eitle as recording secretary, Miss leaveland as corresponding secretary, r. Gardiner as treasurer, Mr. Thompson 5 curator, Mr. Stelle as critic, Miss ;;ott as prosecuting attorney, Mr. Filler chorister, Mi ss Hull as pianist. The Zeto society has always been not- 1 for the number of its members, but lis year it has not been so large, but with such members as Mr. Hawkins, Mr. Fair, Mr. Thompson, and some oth¬ ers, the society has made up in quality wliat it lacks in quantity. There have been some excellent pro¬ grams given this year. They consisted mainly of music, recitations, readings, essays, papers, book reviews, debate, ex¬ temporaneous talks, queries, original poems, and society papers. Frequently the members were required to respond at roll-call with some choice gem from a noted author; once an original poem from each member, which was very am¬ using. We have been particularly fortunate in having four members of the faculty as honorary members. Miss Bryan and M iss Tinkham have given us some beau¬ tiful music, both vocal and instrumental. Mr. Weat herly and Mr. Harvey were both members of the Zeto when they were students of this school. They each gave us instructive, encouraging talks. Old Zetos and other visitors have fre¬ quently talked to the society. Little Leila McReynolds, Miss Mc- Clatiahan, and Miss Estelle Dockery are our best reciters and have recited quite frequently to the delight of the members and others present. Misses Eunice Link, Aughtenreith, Frogge, Hand, and Mr. Sears have given us some beautiful music, both vocal and instrumental. Misses Watson, Tilery, Wells, and Messrs. Fair, Hawkins and Thompson 48 THE MNAMEION. are our essayists and debaters. The other members of the society have not shown their talents so prominently as these, but there has been great improve¬ ment in those who really tried. Almost all of our members have joined this year. At this time there only two who joined last year, Messrs. Nance and Thompson, and only seven who joined before last year, Messrs. Hawk¬ ins, Fair, Morgan, McGee, Sears and Misses Rose Wells and Artie Cleave- land. About forty members have been added to our roll. During the past years the Zetos have won many honors in the graduating classes, many medals in oratorical and declamatory contests, many prizes in field sports. There have been no contests held in the Normal this year. During the Eis¬ teddfod a medal was given to the best interpreter of “The Sky Lark.” Our youngest, Miss Estelle Dockery won this medal. Our society is represented on the foe ball team by Leonard Thompson. I is also on the basket ball team wi Messrs. Nance, Fair, and Hawkins. Of the three young men who were s lected to represent the school in deba against Nebraska State Normal at Pe L. M. Thompson was elected from o society. He is reported to have made fine speech and to have spoken in avoi strong enough to be heard all over t] room; something extraordinary for hii Miss Cleaveland and Messrs. Thom son, Fair and Hawkins are the on members of the Zetosopliian who grad ate in the Senior class. Each departing Senior regrets to lea the old society which has been such help to one.

In the days rhen the school was first moved to the resent building, the faculty, headed by Tof. Baldwin, directed that there should e as many literary societies organized s there were professors in the school. One society was organized in the pring of 1873, probably under Prof. Baldwin’s direction, known as “Baldwin nstitute.” But Prof. Baldwin, a man f practical and democratic spirit, soon ound that the society could stand alone, o he told them that he thought that they ould get along without him and asked hem to change the name of the society, " he name adopted at this time, (spring »f ’74) or at least before the end of the r ear, was “Philomathean.” The cata- ogue printed at the end of that year ears thechange of name from “Baldwin nstitute” to “Philomathean,” and in he next year the name became perma- lently fixed. Some of the charter members were r ho mas, Jamison, Wilson, Springer, Barrington, Miss Flora Harvey, Cum- nings, Bolen, Stout, and W. E. Tomp- dns, all of whom have risen into promi- lence in this and other states. The first regular program under the resent name, was given April 11, 1874. Che second annual entertainment of the ;ocietv was given during commencement week, June 12, 1874. From that date to this the Philos have well kept their “turn” with the other societies in hold¬ ing public entertainments; the last hav¬ ing been held April 13, 1901. The pro¬ gram for the second annual entertain¬ ment was the first printed program of the school—a precedent ever since fol¬ lowed by all societies. Possibly the only change in these public entertainments is that many of the entertainments given in the early history of the society gave free admis¬ sion. The program then as now con¬ sisted of music, declamations, orations, papers, debates, etc. In the many and various contests in¬ augurated in the school for literary, dra¬ matic and athletic excellence, the Philo- matheans have borne a most honorable part. Of the 52 medals, (the whole number awarded in the history of the school to members of the three contest¬ ing literary societies for literary encour¬ agement). the Philomatheans have re¬ ceived 21. Some of the names of those who won honors in these contests in re- c nt years are Cragghead, Ray Seitz, B. P. Taylor, E. B. Seitz, Manly Boucher, and Miss Duty. The name Cragghead brings to Philo minds a man of oratorical power and lit¬ erary talent who won the Ringo medal in 1894; Ray Seitz, a man with a power¬ ful voice, and with both oratorical and declamatory ability, won the library medal m ’90 and received second honors THE MNAMEION. in the contest for the R. M. Ringomedal in ’98; B. P. Taylor stands as a land¬ mark of oratorical excellence in the his¬ tory of this school. He led the Philos to victory in ’97 and in ’98 was chosen to represent the school in the Inter-Nor¬ mal contest at Warrensburg and came out victorious; E. B. Seitz (better known as Baby Seitz), won second place in the declamatory contest of ’99 and first for the Ringo medal in 1900; Manly D. Boucher stood on the platform with Her- eulanean strength and showed the boys how the medal is won in the declama¬ tory contest of 1900; Miss Duty brought to the Philos the W. T. Baird medal of: 1900. A few more of the great list who are worthy of mention in this article are: W. E. Jones, an eloquent and fearless debater; B. P. Six, an orator and debater representing the society in two of the four inter-society debates, who was chosen with Mr. Boucher to repre¬ sent the society in the oratorical contest of 1901 in which he won honors for him¬ self and the medal for the society; J. W. Heyd an orator and debater, noted for his strength and close argument in debate, who represented the society in all four of the inter-society debates of 1899 and 1900. In the athletic contests the Philos have unmercifully swept the field. In 1895 Fred Owen took the all-vonnd-aihlete medal and Ray Seitz took second honors. Thus the Philos had both first and sec¬ ond places. In 1896 the Philos gener¬ ously let one of the other two contes societies have a taste of the sweetnes victory as an encouragement for fur action. But the next year Willie S the winged Philo, swept the field of 3 or and received the ail-round-atl medal. In the two following years Seitz received the highest number points each year but could not take medal a second time, this being cod ry to the rules of the organization, j But the record of 1900 stands unp lleled in the history of the school. O. Daniel took the all-round-atl medal, Joe Daniel took second pi Mr. Boucher took the boys’ declama medal, Miss Duty the girls’ declama medal, and E. B. Seitz the orato] medal. Thus everything went to Philos. The presidents of this year cert a deserve mention here. They are asl lows: Mr. C. E. Dickson, Mr. Ge( Crockett, Mr. L. I). Roberts and Mr] O. Daniel. In spite af many advera the societies run a very successful j under the guidance of these men. Such is the history of the Philom ean Society.

(Photo by Mooro) THE MN AM ETON. ; o T the faculty meeting of the State Normal School Nov. 2, 1877, a petition was presented signed by 35 gen¬ tlemen and 19 ladies, asking permission to organize a society. The petition being granted by the faculty, the petitioners met in room No. 5 to organize. This resulted in the election of Mr. J. C. Dooley as president, and Miss Alice Orr secretary. The first literary program of the so¬ ciety was rendered on November 23, 1877. During the remainder of that year the society had no regular place of meeting. But on Sept. 28, 1878, we find them meeting regularly in room No. 7, then occupied by Prof. Barnard, at which place they remained for 3 years. But a it is a characteristic of the Seniors that they are never satisfied when there are higher things to be accomplished. In 1881 they began to look for some place that they might call their home. In the then unused third story of the building was a room whose chief attract¬ ion was its size. After some effort, by liberal contributions, the hall was pap¬ ered and carpeted, and an organ purch¬ ased, which was the first instrument owned by any society in the school. The dedicatory address was delivered by Prof. Blanton. But as the society prospered it found this hall unsuited to its growing dignity. A movement was begun in 1890, which has resulted in the magnificent hall in which the society now meets. It is a matter of pride to every Senior that they belong to the only chartered society in the institution. This charter was granted by the state April 3, 1882. Since then it has been prosperous indeed, and now with its hand some hall, it has every encouragement for a more brill¬ iant future. Of the many Seniors who have won distinction in their various fields of la¬ bor since leaving their Alma Mater we will note but a few: Prof. Nelson B. Henry, for several years Professor of Pedagogy in the North Carolina Univer¬ sity, now president of Marvin Institute at Fredricktown; Hon. Robert S. Isles of Chicago, County Attorney of Cook County; Prof. J. S. McGhee, who for eighteen years held the chair of Mathe¬ matics in the Cape Girardeau Normal, and for two years its president; our own President, John R. Kirk, for several years Professor of Mathematics in the Kansas City Schools, and for one term State Superintendent of Public Schools; Superintendent Oliver Stigall of Cliilli- cothe; Superintendent Claude S. Broth¬ er, of Kirksville; and Mr. L. E. Floyd, Pastor of the First Baptist Church, Rosedale, Kansas. The Senior Society has reached a status, but the consumation is yet to come. The chief augury of its future THE MNAMEION. : f usefulness lies in the high ideals of ex¬ cellence which it holds. It does not make the mistake of complacently ad¬ miring its own achievements as the acme of attainment. Its ideals are formed from a wider knowledge than is often possessed by such a body of students. It looks beyond the compass of its own walls and selects its models from real life. It has a true humility in the face of what has been accomplished by the world’s great men and women, yet is not daunted, but rather inspired to strive toward a like excellence. The past, which shows to us the achievements of our predecessors, is gone forever; but the future, with all its possibilities, is still our own. Let us arise and take possession of our heritage. But the age has arrived centuries ago when the seat of learning and culture was to depart from the lands of its truth “To reappear with added luster in a country beyond the blue billows of the Mediterranean.” The classic isle of Green had caught and focussed the light of the Oriental culture. Sunny Italy had observed the daylight in the far East and was laying the foundations of her future greatness. Thus, since the dawn of history, civilization and culture, with the advance of centuries, has moved steadily forward to the lands of the Oc¬ cident. Conquering, one by one, the countries of Europe, it leaped the bound¬ aries of the Atlantic, found a prosper¬ ous growth in the new world and today we are to be participators as it looks westward over the broad expanse and stretches a hand into the future to shape the destinies of nations yet unborn. Or as the poet has described in burning words of immortal truth: “The rudiments of empires here” Are plastic yet, and warm; The chaos of a mighty world Is rounding into form.” May every Senior, when he leaves the Normal, enjoy life’s greatest boon, civil and religious liberty. May no more the fair lands of earth be drenched with the blood of patriots struggling for release from oppression and from tyranny. Then the last link in the golden chain of peace will have engirdled the globe. On the black clouds of war where once gleamed the flash of sword and bayonet, and which resounded with the cannon’s thunder, will gleam the rainbow of peace. Then again will be sung the angelic song and its echoes reverbrate to earth’s re¬ motest borders. Peace and good-will henceforth from heaven to man will be¬ gin and never cease.

Self Frank Heyd Elmer Carter D URING the school year of 1899 the idea of organizing a so¬ ciety for the purpose of developing the argurnentary and oratorical powers of it s members was advanced. The idea stead- ily gained ground until it finally culmi¬ nated, during the last semester of that year, in the organization of the Web¬ ster ian Debating Society. Of late years no attempt at such or¬ ganization had been made, but many students were anxious for a society of (Photo by Moore) THE MN AM ETON. this kind, and all that was necessary was to bring the matter to an issue. The condition called for a leader with brains and push to commence and complete the organization. Such a leader was Mr. A. T. Powell, to whom the credit is due for bringing this matter before the students in such a successful manner. Mr. Pow¬ ell had entered the Normal for the first time about the beginning of the second semester of that year. He was not the originator of the idea but had soon ac¬ quired the idea then prevalent that the Normal needed a debating society. Hav¬ ing the confidence and respect of all his classmates and fellow students, he de¬ cided to make an effort at such an organ¬ ization. He called a meeting of those interested in the matter, and the organi¬ zation was practically completed on the 9th of April, 1900, by the election of Mr. Powell for President, and the appoint¬ ment of a committee to plan a constitu¬ tion. It wes. however, some time after this before it could be said that the society was a complete success. In fact, it was not until about the middle of the succeeding month that the society began to do regular work. But when we con¬ sider the fact that the majority of the organizers had had little or no experi¬ ence in society work, and that but one or two of the charter members were ex¬ perienced in organizing societies, the progress of the society from the date of : 9 its organization until the present, has been remarkable. Several of the mem¬ bers to whom the mastery of the art of speech-making has at first seemed im¬ possible soon, have, by dilligent appli¬ cation and effort, become excellent de¬ baters. The enrollment, which was lim¬ ited to thirty-two, grew until it was complete. At the end of the first term’s work, the new society which had seemed at the beginning a subject for good-na¬ tured ridicule with many of the members of the older societies, had gained the respect of all. At the beginning of the present year, the W. D. S. was in a very critical con¬ dition. Nearly all of the charter mem¬ bers were at this time absent, teaching. There remained, however, three or four members. Mr. C. V. 1 wning, who had been elected president for the second term, was absent, and the officers present failed to get the society re-orgonized un¬ til about the 1.0th of October, 1900. At that time a meeting was called by the Vice-president, Mr. Switzer, and about twenty-five new members were admitted. From that time until the present, the society has been doing excellent work. Its meetings have been well attended throughout the year. Its enrollment has been full, and it has drawn its mem¬ bers from among the strongest students of the school. The programs, as one would naturally THE MNAMEION. 60 suppose, are composed almost entirely of debates, but to give variety a few other duties, such as current events, papers, es¬ says, and orations are always added to the programme. The Websterians bold that the development of originality and individuality is the primary object of the debating society and they therefore give a large portion of their time to extempo¬ raneous debates and speeches. The provision in the constitution which limits the membership and a provision which regulates its mode of admitting new members makes the election of an inferior person to membership almost an impossibility. There are, therefore, at the present time among its members, several of the very best students in the school. Of these but a few can be men¬ tioned. Mr. Olney Bondurant, who took an active part in the organization of this society, is well known here and to the reading public for his contribu¬ tions to recent literature. Another Websterian who has distinguished him¬ self by his remarkable ability is Mr. L. C. Rust. As a debater Mr. Rust is not excelled by any student of the Nor¬ mal, and as a writer he has few, if any, equals. Mr. Rust was by unanimous vote of the four literary societies chosen as one of the three representatives of the Normal in the Missouri-Nebraska debate and he well merited the honor. Mr. C. T. Goodale, the present Speaker, needs no mention other than a statement of the fact that he is now the pre uding officer of three most important organizations of the school: The Y. M. C. A., the Freshman Class, and tin 1 Websterian Debating Society. Besides these, there are many others whose ability makes them well worthy of our notice, but time and space will not admit detailed statements of their many excellent qual¬ ities. Mr. A. T. Farnsworth is well known as a student of the school and one of the charter members of this soci¬ ety. Mr. Switzer has done much during the present year to make the society so successful. Mr. Ernest Powell, with his quaint humor and telling arguments is an attraction on our best programs. Mr. W. T. Rogers, the first Consul, who is not in school at the present time, estab¬ lished precedents which will do much to hold the history of the society. Mr. O. L.

TWENTIETH CENTURY DEBATING CLUB. (Photo by Moo 1 3) Van pelt Williamson Heaton Swiney Randall Offett Shoop Prof. Dougherty Wescott McNally McGee Roberts Allen Cole Snedeker Sprout ' Cbc twentieth Century Debating Club Officers, President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, H T the dawn of the Twentieth Centu¬ ry a number of young men from the Sophomore and Freshman classes, realizing the need of the power of ex¬ pressing their thoughts in public address decided to organize a debating club. On January 9, 1901 a body of eighteen met in No. 0 for the purpose of organization. Mr. G. C. Allen, who was instrumental in getting up the petition for the meet¬ ing, called the house to order. Tempor¬ ary organization was effected with John R. Williamson as president and Red¬ mond S. Cole, secretary. A committee to draft a constitution, consisting of R. S. Cole, chairman; S. C. See, E. E. Sweeney, G. C. Allen and G. A. Smith was appointed. This committee drew up a constitution and chose the very fitting name—The Twentieth Century Debating Club—for the new organization. At tin next two meetings, held on January - Grover C. Allen Miles McNally Winter W. Shoop - Charles A. Roberts 1 — and 14 in No. 2, which had been pro¬ vided for us by President Kirk as our permanent home, the club adopted a constitution and by-laws and formed a permanent organization. On January 19 the club opened its forensic deliberations by a thorough dis¬ cussion of the Anglo-Boer war. From that time on we have had weekly debates which were participated in with great earnestness. The following are some of the live and up-to-date questions debated : Resolved, That Mrs. Nation is Justified in Smashing Saloons; Resolved that the l nited States has the Right to Demand Suzerainty Over the Cubans; Resolved that United States Senators Should be elected by direct Vote of the People; Resolved that a System of Compulsory Education Should be Established in the U. S.; Resolved that the Elective Fran¬ chise Should be Restricted to Those who THE MNAMEION. can -Read and Write Intelligently. Along with the regular debates papers on vari¬ ous questions were read before the club. On several occasions we were highly en¬ tertained with selections on the violin by our worthy president, Mr. John R. Wil¬ liamson. In the comparatively short existence of the club, it has made rapid progress and bids fair to become the most instru¬ mental agent for the development of character marked by individuality and self reliance in the Normal. The history of our club is so short that we have decided to use the remainder of the space allotted to us in briefly men¬ tioning some of the members. John R. Williamson, to whom the club owes more for its advancement than any one else, is one of those Harrison county students, who have distinguished them¬ selves for their zeal and their abilities as scholars. As president of the club he made us an able executive officer and one that all might be proud of. As a debat¬ er he was without a peer. Before enter¬ ing the Normal Mr. Williamson had been a student at the Methodist college at Albany, Mo. This fall he intends to enter the State University. Many years ago in Switzerland an av¬ alanche swept a town oft the mountain side into the valley below. Of the in¬ habitants only a little boy survived. As he was too young to tell his name he was called Abplanalph, A direct de- 03 seen da nt of his, B. F. Abplanalph, of our club, is a student at the Normal. He is a Worth county teacher. E. E. Sweeney, who hails from Nod¬ away county, attended the Maryville Seminary and the Stan berry Normal be¬ fore coining here, lie has taught school for five years. He makes a good debat¬ er, because of his originality and ability to state things tersely. Missouri is not the only state represent¬ ed in the club. Mi . Murdy and Mr. Bur¬ gher hail from Iowa, while C. M. Sned- eker comes from the Iloosier state. No doubt they will spread the fame and name of our club abroad. Nor is our club lacking in athletes, for4h A. Roberts of Clark county and S. C. See of Audrain, belonged to the football teams of 1899 and 1900. Rob¬ erts is now on the baseball team. Both are good students, good debaters, and both have served as president of the club. Our president-elect, G. C. Allen, is a young Sophomore from Scotland county. It is his intention to complete the course here and then enter the State Universi¬ ty. Mr. Allen is a good student and stands well in his classes. Asa debater he does excellently for one so young. Miles McNally is one of those irre¬ pressible Freshmen, who won fame on account of their activity and the manner in which they did things. He was an G 4 THE MNAMEION. active member of the chib and held sev¬ eral offices. He will be in the Normal next year. C. A. Sprout and W. W. Shoop are two promising young men who took a great interest in the club work and who derived great benefit on account of hav¬ ing participated in the debates. Redmond S. Cole is the only repre¬ sentative from Andrew county in the Normal. He entered the school in 1899 and will be graduated with the Sopho¬ more class of this year. For a time he was president of the Freshman class, the other presidents being Roberts, Nance and Elder. Next September he will en¬ ter Nebraska University. Charles Lile and O. V. Muir while in school did good work in the club. Ar- leigli Sliibley early gave up the work as studies were too pressing. Boon Cason was chosen by one of the literary societ¬ ies as their representative in the declam¬ atory contest. O. E. Heaton was first voted in recently and has hardly got ac¬ quainted with the work. L. R. Westcott, who is beyond question one of the most handsome young men in school, is also a new member. He is a fine student. Another new member is F. F. McGee, before coming to the normal he attended the Unionville Summer Normal. G. A. Smith was one of the first to signify his willingness to organize- a club. Unfortunately he, as well as R. Campbell and O. L. Morton, was com¬ pelled to return home soon after we or¬ ganized. N. A. Randall is one of our strongest members. He is a good student, a fine debater, and as a singer he has few peers. Mr. Randal would be a credit to any club. E. C. Offutt and George Van Pelt were two good members. In debate they both did well. Both are thought well of by students and faculty. Claytonlan Debating Club C HE Claytonian Debating Club was organized the latter part of the first semester of the school year of 1900 and 1901, for the mutual improvement of its members in forensical lines, under the leadership of J. D. Gorman, J. W. Miller and W. M. Wells. It is compos¬ ed of about thirty young men, chiefly from the Freshman class. This club meets every Saturday even¬ ing and debates some educational sub¬ ject, usually an historical one such as the “Banishment of Napoleon,” and the “President’s Policy Toward the Phil- lippines.” Decorum in debate is strict¬ ly observed, and all personalities are ab¬ solutely prohibited. The officers are elected every ten weeks, but no officer is allowed to succeed himself. This gives each member a chance to participate in the benefits of office-holding. The entire feeling of the members to¬ ward this most beneficial club is that they have greatly profited by participat¬ ing in-the pleasure that it affords and that no student should through negli¬ gence deprive himself of this most essen¬ tial part of his college career. YOUNG MEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. (Photo by Moore) £. JM C. M. C. T. Goodale, President C. B. Harrison, Vice-President. R. N. Randall, Cor. Sec. F. M. McGee, Rec. Sec. Jas. N. Stelle, Treasurer. C HE history of our Young Men’s Christian Association dates from March 3, 1896, when it was organized by State Secretary Gordon, with thirty- four charter members and Mr. J. W. Hatcher as president. With the support and encouragement of Prof. Dobson and the faculty, the Association grew in numbers and influence until it became one of the most permanent organizations of the institution. Its officers are cho¬ sen in April of each year. Those serv¬ ing in the capacity of president since its organization are: J. W. Hatcher, 1896; C. W. Murphy, ’96-7; O. H. Lind, ’97-8; J. A. DeTienne, 98-9; S. W. Arnold, ’99-’00; T. M. Mitchell, ’00-01; C. T. Goodale ’01. It gives us pleasure and pride to know our association is an integral part of the world-wide movement known as the World’s Student Christian Federation which embraces 1400 student Christian Associations located in different institu¬ tions of learning in almost every nation of the world. Two hundred and fifty in non Christian lands. The chief purpose of our existence as an association are: 1, To unite Christian students for strength, Christian develop¬ ment and culture, and lead them to a larger field of usefulness and Christian activity. 2 , To guard students against temptation and perils which too often beset them in school life. 3, To pro¬ mote a spirit of sociability among the entire student body5 especially the stu¬ dents just entering school. 4, To pro¬ mote a healthy spirit of investigation in¬ to the scriptures and arouse intelligent interest in home and foreign missions. The Association is strictly undenomi¬ national, recognizing no creed, order class or society, but blending them all into one brotherhood of social and fra¬ ternal workers. The membership consists of young men of the school, both students and members of the faculty. Those who are members in good standing of some evan¬ gelical church are active members of the association. Non-cliurch members be¬ come associate members. The comprehensive work is executed and the various purposes accomplished through the workings of well organized 68 THE MN AM El ON. committees, each of which is in charge of some particular branch of the work. The regular standing committees are: Bible Committee, Religious Meetings Committee, Missionary, Social, Member¬ ship, Finance, and Inter-collegiate rela¬ tions committees. The Bible Committee seeks to interest the young men in Bible study, and to organize classes and provide teachers for the same. The past year this depart¬ ment lias been under the supervision of E. A. McKay who took a course of train¬ ing in the work at the summer confer¬ ence of the Y. M. C. A. at Lake Geneva, Wis. last June, A class was organized at the beginning of last year, consisting of both young men and young women under the leadership of Rev. Smi ill of the city. A thorough and systematic work of the “Life of Christ” was pur¬ sued by the class. The weekly devotional services of the Association are under the control of the Religious Meetings Committee which provides a suitable leader for each meet- ing and selects subjects which are of a helpful, and spiritual nature. The com¬ mittee also provides the regular and special music and arranges for addresses by prominent resident and visiting speakers. The meetings are usually held in one of the society halls on Sunday afternoons and are well attended. The aim has been to make them largely in¬ formal and practical, giving each one present an opportunity to take an active part. The work of the committee for the year has been conducted by Mr. C. B. Harrison. Prominent among the departments of Y. M. C. A. is that of the Missionary work. The foreign missionary spirit which is so widespread throughout the land has reached the Young Women’s and Young Men’s Christian Associations of this school and laid claim to five of their members who expect to give their life’s services to the uplift of humanity in foreign lands. Mr. C. E. Dickson, who took a course of training in this work at the Geneva Conference last June has served with the committee from the Y. W. C. A. in providing for a joint meeting of the two associations each month in which interesting subjects on missionary topics were ably discussed. China, India, and the Philippines were the fields for discussion during the past year. The work of the social committee has been overseen by Mr. C. T. Goodale. No department has been more success¬ fully conducted. At the beginning of the school year a general reception for all students was given jointly with the Y. W. C. A. About two hundred stu¬ dents were present and the efforts made to make every body acquainted, especial¬ ly the new students, met with marked success. All enjoyed a social evening together and new students no longer THE MNAMEION. 69 felt themselves among strangers but among friends whose interests and sym¬ pathies were mutual. Two other social gatherings were held later in the year by the young men alone. These were informal, consisting of games, music, refreshments, toasts and responses by members of the faculty and others. Everyone pres¬ ent felt very much at home and seemed to enjoy the occasion to the fullest extent. The Y. M. C. A. emphasizes the cultivation of the social nature as well as the spiritual. The Information Bureau conducted by the two Associ ations at the begin¬ ning of the year proved a benefit to scores of new students. Committees of both young women and men met incoming trains and conducted new students to the Normal to the Asso¬ ciation headquarters in the Reading room. Here a list of the boarding houses of the town and other infor¬ mation concerning board was collected for the benefit of new students. Every assistance possible was given to help locate students in suitable homes. The Bureau further sought to aid the new students in becoming acquainted with each other; with the workings, plans, and regulations of the school; explaining the course of study, and rendering them service in evere possible way. Thru the kindness of Pres. Kirk and the courtesy of the Board of Regents, one of the rooms was fitted up to be used as headquarters for the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. Here an information bureau was established at the beginning of the year for the reception and benefit of new students; but its main purpose was to be a reading room, where the entire stu¬ dent body might have access to a cur¬ rent library. Early in the year the leading magazines and metropolitan dailies were secured and placed at the disposal of the students. Since there is such an active and increasing demand for magazine reading on the part of the students we hope next year to secure aid from the Regents which will enable us to maintain a better library of current literature. For the past two years the Y. M. C. associations of the Normal and the American School of Osteopathy have jointly conducted a lecture course. The purpose is of course, to bring the best lectures and entertainments within the reach of the entire student body each year, and incidently to pay the running expenses of the associa¬ tions, to maintain the reading room; and to extablish a fund to send our delegates to Lake Geneva. Among the numbers presented thus far are : Gov. Rob. Taylor, of Tenn., Robt. McIntyre, Dr. Frank Gunsaulus, Boston Fadettes, Luther Manship, A. S. O. Glee Club with Prof. Harvey, and many others. The course has been well patronized and has been a financial success. Of the joint com¬ mittee for the next year of which Dr. C. W. Proctor, of the A. S. O. is chair¬ man,—the members from the Normal are: Prof. E. M. Violette, Jas. M. Stelle and C. T. Goodale. This com¬ mittee is arranging to present next year the best course yet given. None of the numbers have yet been selected tho “Bob Burdette”, Gen. Gordon, Chicago Glee Club, and others are under advisement. We hope to be able to give six numbers of the best talent on the American platform at the regular rate of $1.50 for the entire course. T. M. Mitchell.

C HE Young- Women’s Christian Association of the Kirksville Normal was organized in 1895 by Miss Helen Barnes for the purpose of developing Christian character among the girls of the school. Miss Zoe Snelling was elected president. The Association holds daily prayer meets at 7:45 each school morning which are led by one of the members. The purpose of these meetings is, that the girls may more fully conse¬ crate themselves to a righteous life. Here the girls learn to know and to help each other. Sunday afternoon meetings are held weekly for devo¬ tional exercises led by one of the members. All girls of the school are cordially invited to attend both of these meetings. The Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. hold joint meetings monthly for the purpose of discussing Mis¬ sionary work. The Missionary spirit Nellie Rockhold, Cor. Sec’y. Hallie Hall, Tresurer. developes the spiritual life, and the social life as well. It is certainly a great factor in the social life of the Normal and the members belonging to it feel it to be of the greatest help and inspiration in their school life. In the way of entertainment the association gives a reception to all new students entering school during the first tw r o weeks of the school year. The purpose of this reception is for the members to meet and make the acquaintance of new students. Social gatherings are given during the year for the enjoyment of the stu¬ dents. These entertainments are given during the year for the enjoy¬ ment of the students. These enter¬ tainments are much appreciated by those who attend. Joint receptions are also given by the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. In the busy student life the need of social development is THE MNAMEION. 71 great. We are too apt to grow self¬ ish and shut ourselves up with school work. In this association the girls are drawn together into a stronger sisterhood. The aim of the association is to help college students to higher life and thereby fits themselves for their life work. Many a young girl goes into college surrounded by evil influence which jshe is unable to withstand unless she receives aid. In this case the association takes the place of the home in shielding these girls from temptation. In this department of the school work, the girls develop a spirit of helpfulness which is the secret of success. This organization is a help to all and draws no line between the Chris¬ tian and non-christian, but forever draws the line between right and wrong. Policy of the Kirksville Normal Y. W. C. A. “I can do all things through Christ which strengthenth me.”— Phil. 4-13. I. To promote the welfare of the students, (a) By meeting them at the trains when new students arrive. ( ;) By putting them into good homes. II. To promote Bible study among the students. III. To promote the right kind of social life among the students. ( a ) By a series of gatherings.

The Y. W. C. A. send a representa¬ tive to the Geneva Conference held at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin every year. This year ' we will send our president, Miss Rose Wells, through whom we hope our association will gain great benefit and inspiration. Most of the work bf the association is done through committees appointed by the President. The duty of the Devotional commit¬ tee is to arrange for the devotional meetings. The Missionary committee arranges all missionary meetings. The Reception committee plans to promote the social life of the associa¬ tion, the aim of which is to unite all young women of the school in a Christian sisterhood. The Membership committee can¬ vasses all young ladies in the institu¬ tion, presents the object of the Y. W. C. A., and urges them to unite with it. The Finance committee assists the treasurer in collecting the regular membership fees. The means of raising funds are by membership fees, by free-will offer¬ ings, by social entertainment, and by field-day exercises. Sound Doctrine j -cf From Catalogue of 1900-91. During the past year the school was put upon a self-g-overning basis. Our students are understood to be men and women whose purposes are well settled, who have no time to lose, who have their life work mapped out before them. We have no spying upon students’ conduct and no checks or deportment marks for those trifling- delinquents which are liable to occur among- the best students. All students are put upon their honor. They are requested to behave in the presence of the President and Faculty just as they would do in the absence of such persons. In passing- from room to room and in the Assembly Room except¬ ing- during- exercises, students are encourag-ed to eng-age in quiet and pleasant conversation; they are made to feel as free from constraint as possible. It is thus found that the students them¬ selves take much pride in the gxxxl discipline of the School. Dis¬ order disturbs them as much as it disturbs the Faculty. They feel, as they have a rig-ht to feel, that they and the Faculty tog-ether build up the moral tone of the institution. This consti¬ tutes the g-overning-power. Ours is a discipline of self-control.- It is a purely democratic plan of g-overnment. It relieves the Faculty of innumerable petty duties, appeals constantly to the manly and womanly pride of the students and renders the school a pleasant place. These students have a future of great promise. They realize this fact. They expect to control others. They are to be the teachers of Missouri. “ He who would g-overn others must first learn to g-overn himself. ” L. M. THOMPSON B. P. SIX L. C. RUST REPRESENTATIVES OF K. S. N. S.
