HE faculty members of the English Department are able to SETTLE all contro-
versies in our language in a WISE manner, while they MANN the students over
the difficulties. If by chance, dull students fall into the department, they may
be sharpened by the EMIIRY that makes every one a little brighter.
Although Latin is a dead language, here it seems to be GREEN.
No ponies are furnished in Spanish, neither can the students slide through, for there is
only one trail to follow, and that is guided by a competent WALKER.
There is no way to HEYD from a Germanvquiz, so the sooner over, the better.
In the History Department, an "E" is almost as rare as a VIOLETTE on Mount
McKinley. Every one has an equal chance, however, for the motto of the department is
" KINGSBURY. What's FAIR for one is FAIR for all. H
There seem to be just the XVRIGHT ones for the place in the Agricultural Department.
Students are treated well in the Practice School, unless they DOOLITTLE, then the
supervisors seem SAVAGE, which causes the students PAINE.
It will not do for students to enter a science class crowing over the fact that they have
not studied, for they may feel that they do not belong to the high-brows but to the class that
The Board of Regents sc-nt miles for a Sweet WILLIAMS to adorn the gymnasium.
Can there be greater enjoyment or grander SE1Tz than those presented by the Chorus,
Orchestra or band in the Music Department?
Shoddy work is not done in the art rooms, for in this department the work is as genuine
as all LYLE.
The aspiring cooks receive light from the KOLL and soon there is a radiation of bril-
lianey in the kitchen.
There is no State Highway in the Rural Department, and whoever succeeds
BURROVVS through and gets to the Roofr of the subject.
Students who have expected to get along in the various departments without effort
have been found at the ofliee in a POOLE of tears, before they decided to SETTLE downto
Faculty members, you have made us work
Many times when we should have liked to shirk,
Yet we shall remember as the years go
How you helped the " green " develop and grow.

Sturffileint Courrmeill and Senate
N the belief that the Kirksville State Normal School is a great democracy in
which every student must be an active factor in promoting the general welfare
of the school, in December, 1915, the students of the school organized a
. . Student Council, which is composed of all resident students of the school. A
constitution was drawn up by a special committee composed of members of the Council
and was submitted to the Council on December 16, 1915. The constitutionwas adopted.
This constitution is a complete set of rules governing the work of the organization, vesting
certain powers in the Council, a Senate, a President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer.
The number of students in the Council is too large to enable that body to perform
quickly and with the best results the work of the organization. For this reason the consti-
tution provides for a Senate, which is a representative body composed of a student repre-
sentative from each of such student organizations as the Senate officially recognizes, the
presidents of the various classes, the Editor-in-Chief of the Normal School Index, and the
captains of the athletic teams representing the entire school. The Senate meets regularly
and conducts business according to the regulations laid down by the constitution. When a
measure is passed by the Senate it is presented to the,Student Council, where it is discussed
and voted upon, this vote deciding its final adoption. The President, the Secretary, and
the Treasurer are elected by ballot from the Council at large and hold their respective
offices in both the Council and the Senate. r
This year the Senate is composed of twenty-eight of the more advanced students who
are vitally interested in the welfare of the school. A few of the big enterprises that have
been well planned and successfully carried out will indicate the nature of the work done by
the Student Council through the Senate.
The greatest event of a social nature for which the Council was responsible was the
Athletic Celebration, given on February 2, 1917, in honor of the athletic victories of 1916.
The entire program was planned and the celebration managed by the members of the Senate.
One of the biggest moves of a business nature was the completion of a plan by which
the State Legislature can be reached through the students of the school. The students
were organized into county groups, the permanent chairman of each being a member of
the Senate and the secretary a student elected from among its own members. Each
secretary, working with a temporary committee of three persons belonging to his county
organization, writes to the representative and senator of the district in which his county
lies when the Student Senate deems it advisable to do so. Steps have also been taken toward
the organization of Kirksville Clubs in localities where at least five former students are
located. The Legislature will also be reached through these organizations.
Another plan was completed by which there is to be a simple graduation exercise given
during the half-hour of regular morning assembly on the last day of each quarter for stu-
dents receiving certificates and diplomas. This does not detract from the final graduation
exercises in May, for all students who have received certificates or diplomas during the year
are required to take part in these exercises.
One of the most enterprising moves made by the Senate this year was the drawing up
of resolutions asking that the State provide money for theerection of a new building, the
Hrst of a series of new buildings which will one day occupy the site of the present Kirksville
State Normal School buildings.
These are but a few of the big enterprises that have been successfully carried out by the
Student Senate. A wonderful amount of effective work is quickly and easily accomplished
through the cooperation of this body with the Administration of the Normal School.

A Short History of the Senior Cliass C
N response to a petition signed by the candidates for the 120-Hour Diploma,
President Kirk called a meeting of such students Wed.nesday morning, October
g 25, 1916. At this meeting the Senior Class of the Kirksville State Normal
-X School Was formally organized. lVIr. D. E. Neale Was elected President, and
Miss Phradie Wells Secretary. At a later meeting the list of regular officers was completed.
The Work of the class as an organization was only fairly begun when it Was interrupted
by the resignation of the President, Mr. Neale, Who, because of his absence from school,
found it impossible to continue the performance of his duties in oflice. A meeting Was
therefore called December 14, 1916, and Mr. Roy Inbody was elected to fill out the unex-
pired term of Mr. Neale.
The class finds itself in the unique situationof being the first class of its rank to bear
the name Senior. Here-to-fore, the 90-Hour Class has been designated as the Senior Class,
but under the new ruling this name is to be applied only to the organization of students Who
are candidates for the 120-Hour Diploma. Hence, the Senior Class of 1917 enjoys the dis-
tinction of being the first class in the Kirksville State Normal School to bear the name,
"Senior", as that name is commonly applied to college graduates. There is, in fact, "some-
thing new under the sun. "
At this Writing the class has a membership of twenty,-a membership which is repre-
sentative of the highest and best scholarship in the school. In addition to individual records
of high merit the class is proud to recognize in its enrollment six teaching scholars in the
various departments of the school, the President and Secretary of the Student Senate, the
Editor of the Index, with a number of his associates, and a Supervisor of Music in the De-
partment of Practice. It is safe to say that the class includes a majority of the leaders of
the student thought and activity of the school.
In brief it may be said that the class as a unit stands for that which is highest and best
in student life. Its ideals are high, its purposes are noble, its aims are being slowly but
surely realized. And may the same be ever truly said of the members of the Senior Class

Junrniorr Class History
N college, as in the great nations, it is the middle class that produces the leaders.
We have evidence of this fact in the Junior Class of 1917-the first 90-Hour
Junior Class in the history of K. S. N. S. .
We can not boast of coming up through the three years of our college life to-
gether, an unbroken group, but When this class was called together at the beginning of
the year for the purpose of organization, we found that for every member We lost, We had
gained one who could amply fill his place. We are not boasting when We say that We have
in our class some of the most noted students of K. S. N. S. Every member is a lively, am-
bitious Worker, and one result of the united efforts of the Junior class is this year-book of
1917. It needs no comment. The ECHO speaks for itself. It was in the accomplishing
of this great task that the true class spirit was shown. Every member had a part, and all
pulled together as one. Has our class life been all Work and no play? Ask our Social Com-
mittee. Has it been all play and no Work? Ask the year-book staff. Have We great
leaders? We have but to mention the names: Leupkes, Williams, Perley, Johnson,
Graham, Ford, Ryle, Morris, Shouse, and Rogers, when there flashes through the minds
of all, thoughts of art, dramatics, debates won, cartoons, oratory, speeches in assembly,
delicious "eats," "the year-book,', music, and LOVE. We have no Words by which we
can measure the thousand little deeds of the unmentioned ones that will make them live in
our hearts forever. They are "great in thought, great in deed, and great in the hearts of
their class-mates. "

Junior Class Poem
. And recollection
"' We'll think of
ITH deep affection
The Kirksville school
And the days when pleasure
Came without measure
And we as Juniors
Obeyed every rule.
We'll hear bells clamming
And think of the jamming
And sometimes ramming
Through the hallg
How at a glib rate
Our tongues would vibrate
In the class-room
We shall recall.
Then the library hall
With its silence to appall
And the readings not small
We'll see once more.
The time for examination
That brought consternation
Will come to our minds
As of yore.
The memory bringing
Of the chorus singing
And the room ringing
The full notes free
Will make Kirksville days
Seem worthier of praise
As we think of
The pleasures with thee.
The Pageant so fair
The banquets so rare
And the debaters ne'er
The six camp fires
With work that inspires
In our memory
Forever is set.
The boys with the "pep"
Who made such a "rep"
In the championship
And the speeches and toasts
That were given without boasts
As a gold football
Was handed each member.
On these we'll ponder
Where'er we wander
And thus grow fonder
K. S. N. S., of thee:
And of our Junior days
We'll always sing praise
And of the President
With the faculty.

Freshman Glass History
OURSCORE and several days ago there was brought forth into this K. S. N. S.
a new class consisting of people and dedicated to the supposition that all f' Green
Things" will grow. We are sometimes referred to as "Freshies, " but the
reason for it we cannot tell, for it so often happens that some one of our num-
ber is thought to be an upper classman.
We soon learned that E was a very much coveted grade so, we set about to capture a
few of them and now we are proud to say that more arc given in this class than in any other.
In fact it is rumored that:
Some are so set in securing their E's Ceaseb,
That the base wears out and leaves by degrees,
' Till when the end of the quarter rolls ' round ,
They greet with a very unpleasant frown
The card which bears their grade for what is leftl '
Which looks a heap like a measly HF."
Though we have not swallowed a thermometer, we are getting on to the ropes by de-
grees. We elected for our President Mr. Roland Zeigel for whom every one will testifv
that he is the most thoughtful, broad-minded and gentlemanly man who has ever yet
served this class.
For our Vice-President we secured an imported man as the narnesignifies, Mr. Frank
France. As Secretary we selected Miss Helen Wilson, the fair and modest daughter of Mr.
Wilson. As Class Historian the honor was conferred upon Herman H. Hayes, Cno relation
to Rutherford B. D. '
In referring to the largeness of our class some one suggested that quality is far better
than quantity. Perhaps so, but how fortunate it is to be blessed with both. Within the
ranks of this wonderful class, which will never be duplicated, you may find scientists, artists,
musicians, mathematicians, pedagogues, merry-makers, manly-men, maids and mutton
heads-all the necessary timber with which to make the senior class of 1920 second only to
the one which we now vision away younder in the misty future in the form of young boys
and girls who are to be trained and inspired to do great things by artists from our own flock.
Time and space forbid a more extended narration, but in short, we are just a straight
out democratic class who take no stock in boasting but rather maintain that actions speak
louder than words, for it is true that a man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of
Now if you do not like us it is because you do not know us, for true it is that:
If we knew you and you knew "we, " Of firm good faith on either side,
'Tis seldom we should disagree. Confidence, to each other give,
But scarcely having yet clasped hand, Living ourselves, let others live.
Both often fail to understand With pleasant smile and outstretched hand
That each intends to do what's right VVe'll welcome others to our band.
And treat each other honor bright. And by this motto we will be
How much happier all could be A more perfect DGIHOCIHCY,
If we knew you and you knew Uwe. " For it is then my friend you see,
Then let no doubting thots abide That we'l1 know you and you'll know Uwe."

Cllayteimiarm Debating Clliuib
HE term, "Old Reliable, " has always been associated with the Claytonian
Debating Club, and the "Claytos" have lived up to their reputation during
the past year. If Henry Clay were still alive, he would be quick to say,
. "Pm glad Pm a 'Clayto'. "
At the beginning of the year it was uphill pulling. We were not so fortunate as our
fellow club, the Websterian. Very few of our old members came back to school in the fall.
But the few that did come back got busy and "started the ball rolling. " It soon picked up
some good debating material and the club completed its organization and began work.
Then another difficulty beset us. Six or seven of our old stand-bys were out for football
and could not be with us during the fall quarter. This, of course, necessitated the "break-
ing in " of some raw material.
To make a long story short, we "broke in" our new members and did some good work
while the boys were out for football. Then, when the winter quarter opened up, we were
all back "rearing to go. " We've been "rearing to go" ever since. One of our fellow clubs
still has it over us in numbers, but we have the quality. We believe we can put out the
strongest debating team in school and have intimated as much to the other clubs.
As we part this year, although we cannot conscientiously say that we have had the year
we had in 1915-'16, we can proudly say "We have held the fort," and next year any old
"Claytos" coming back to the K. S. N. S. will find a Claytonian Debating Club ready to
take them in.

Demnostlheniian Debating Cllmilbb
HROUGHOUT all the centuries of time there has never been a man who pos-
sessed greater power to sway the voice of senates, to create public sentiment
and to produce and develop great political ideals than that great man of At-
tica, Demosthenes. Never have we had orators who combined intensity, sin-
cerity and eloquence in such a harmonious and appealing style.
. The knowledge of these sublime traits of this great personality has led to the organiza-
tion of a debating club in the K. S. N. S. for the development of the profound Demos-
thenonian principles of reasoning.
The club for this year has done some good work since reorganization in December.
It has increased in membership at sweeping strides. The Demosthenonians possess that
twentieth century booster spirit coupled with an intense desire to reach out and help the
other fellow. These very traits are alone indicative of the future success of the organiza-
There is a living nucleus within the club which is certain to produce unlimited results
as it develops. As yet the club has not taken up, nor undertaken to promote, any specific
principle of thought but it is anticipated in the near future. There is no doubt but that
some remarkable ideal will be worked out, by that body of thinking men, which will be of
interest and value to mankind.
All phases of literary work are considered by the Demosthenonians from humor to
philosophy, and all questions are discussed from woman suffrage and prospects of a world
wide peace to the proper method of exterminating such household pests as the troublesome
There is a spirit of fellowship and of manliness developed within the club which never
fails to send a thrill of joy and appreciation through us when we grasp the hand of an alum-
nus and he tells us he was once a Demosthenonian.
May the Demosthenonians increase in numbers and in influence and may those great
principles propounded by that one of long ago never cease to be encouraged and developed
here within our midst.

extreme volubility of some of the members. But after much discussion it was wisely de-
cided to assess the stalwart, dauntless Schwartz a double fee if he were placed on the front

formed an organization known as "The Dramatic Club" of the Kirksville
. State Normal School: Messrs. Scoggin, Fuller, Patterson, Wise, Hauptmann,
Clough, and Phillips 5 Misses Cornett, Selby, Ball, Ina Finegan, Vera Finegan,
Babbitt and Fish. The forming of this club was the outgrowth of several successful pro-
ductions of classical drama, and the club has continued its high standard by giving the fol-

At the present time the club is working on: "You Never Can Tell", by Bernard
Shaw, and "Six Cups of Chocolate", By Schmithof. It expects to surpass all it has ever
done by giving Shakespearls "King Lear" this summer.
Much of the success of the club must be attributed to the untiring efforts of its critics:
Professors Phillips, Noyer and Wise.

HE history of the janitor club dates back to Dec. 1, 1902, when Mr. John C.
Jack of Edina,Mo., accepted the position of head janitor of the Kirksville
State Normal School. He began his Work with only one assistant janitor.
W During the following ten years three men were added to the regular force.
In December, 1912, it was decided to lessen the regular force and add students in their
stead, thereby giving some good, honest, hard Working boys a chance to make th '
expenses While they were in school. Seeing that the experiment proved a success Mr
Jack decided to give more students this opportunity. He now has two regular men besides
.himself and eleven student janitors doing the Work.
The club assesses each member ten cents C10cD per month. This money is used to
defray the expenses of the annual banquet and any incidental expenses that may occur
Th ' ' '
e young men who work on the janitor force are rather a remarkable class of students.
This is revealed by examining their record. Since the above mentioned idea developed
thirt -five d'ff t b f ' ' '
y 1 eren oys have been employ ed in this capacity. Many of these are now
holding responsible positions as high school superintendents and princi als O d-
' p . ne, a gra
uate of this school, is now attending Cornell University At the present time the Presi-
dent and Vice-President of the Y M C A the President of the Ninet H Cl
. . . ., y- our ass, the
Editor of the Index, and three representatives in the Student Senate are janitors. During
one quarter of last year the President and Vice-President of the Y. M. C. A., the President
of each of the debating clubs, and the President of both the Thirty and Ninety-Hour
Classics were janitors. The last three years the President of the Ninety Hour Class has
beenia janitor, Some of the most prominent musicians and athletes have also been
members of this organization.
We rather doubt if any other educational institution of the count h
ry as such an
organized club of student janitors Who can display such qualities and scholarship and Who
celebrate the holidays With an annual banquet.

. Historicall Society
HE Historical Society, which was organized in 1906, has the distinction of being
the oldest departmental society in K. S. N. S. It has had a continuous ex-
istence, and is one of the few societies which maintain an organization during the
summer term. In order to have only those who are interested in history and
make the society a real live one, the membership is limited to twenty-five. The faculty
members of the Department of History and the students who are especially interested in
history and who have shown a considerable degree of aptitude in history work make up its
Regular meetings of thc society are held every two weeks. This year has been spent
in the systematic study of Mexico, beginning with the early Indian tribes and coming up
to the present-day situation. The programs consist of a formal report followed by round-
table discussions, and every member is urged to prepare and enter into these discussions.
Much enjoyment and benefit is derived from the free and informal work, in which both
faculty members and students participate. In addition to the regular programs, the so-
ciety tries to secure prominent men who are interested in history to address not only its
members but the whole school. For instance, it was through this society that Mr. Edgar
Banks, the archaeologist, was secured to give his illustrated lecture, "A Thousand Miles
Down the Tigris River". The Historical Society stimulates interest in history, and hopes
through its work to encourage students of history and prospective teachers of history.

HE Mathematics Society was organized in the Spring Term of 1913.
The purpose of the organization is to give those persons interested in
mathematics an opportunity to meet and discuss important questions
relative to mathematics. The society is one of the strongest organiza-
tions of its kind in the school, having sustained a vital interest in its Work since it
A brief review of the Work of this society during the school year 1916-'17 shows
that results of great value are being derived from its Work. Many questions con-
cerning Elementary and Secondary Mathematics are discussed. Also, the lives of
many of the great mathematicians are studied. The teachers in the Mathematics
Department of the Normal School contribute regularly to the programs. This is
of great help to the students of the Society who are preparing to teach mathemat-
The society is composed of earnest, hard-Working students and teachers who
are vitally interested in their Work. There can be no doubt about the fact that it
will live to maintain its reputation.

Pruilblliic Speaking Cllurlb
T is an undeniable fact that many of our most talented and energetic students
on launching out into the world for themselves fail completely because they
have not learned to utilize their intellectual capital. A realization of this
truth has become so prevalent that a few of our most enthusiastic students,
who believe in a "preventative" rather than a H curing" medicine, got together to devise a
plan to aid our present day students in escaping this evil. The result- was the organization
of the Public Speaking Club, J an. 10, 1917.
The practicability of aiding the members to adjust themselves to any and all circum-
stances is shown by the method of varying the programs. The club is so designed that at
any time the program may be so arranged as to apply to any phase of life, as for example, a
farmers' organization, alumni banquet or a United States Senate.
To insure that the club will never yield to the common failure of "falling into ruts",
it is a set purpose of the club to vary the programs continually and to further guard this,
to elect new officers every month. As an example of the work, at one of the meetings an
address was given on f'After Dinner Speeches" in which the speaker pointed out clearly
the principal requisites of an after dinner speech. After a few meetings the remarks made
were put into actual practice by the presentation of some real after dinner speeches, assum-
ing that a banquet had just been served. Addresses on current events are very valuable to
the busy students in helping to increase their knowledge of present day problems.
The club meets every Weclnesday at 7 o'clock and closes promptly at 8:30.

HE Rural Sociology Club is not the oldest organization in the K. S. N. S., but it
is "The Club That Lives The Year Round. " It held its Hrst meeting June
19, 1911, in response to a request by President Kirk to which twenty-five stu-
dents responded. Prof. H. W. Foght, now With the National Bureau of Edu-
cation at Washington, D. C., Was largely instrumental in its organization, and J. C. Williams
was the first president. The year 1916-'17 has been the greatest in its history. The mem-
bership reached one hundred twenty-seven during the summer.
The members of the club are among those regularly enrolled in the Department of Rural
Education and others interested in the problems of country life. They have chosen for
their motto, "Hold Fast the Good and Seek the Better Yet. " The club colors are orange
The club has been organized for a definite purpose. Its fundamental aims are to create
a Wider interest in country life, to help solve some of the problems of rural communities,
and to improve the conditions under which rural teachers Work. The club hopes through
its Work to encourage students and teachers in their Work in the rural community.
The members of the club look back to the year 1916-17 with a feeling of joy and pride.
Some of the various activities participated. in Were: 'interesting programs every Friday
evening, a trip to Radical Ridge, and social entertainments, including a delightful evening
as the guests of the Kirksville Grange. During the winter quarter, the club arranged for
the Dramatic Club to give another production of the rural life play, "A Vision of the Home-
land", in order that all of the students might see it. In addition to the regular programs,
the club has often invited prominent men in to address its members and visitors in open
session. Literary societies in the rural districts have accepted invitations to give their
programs with the club.

SPANISH Club was organized last quarter from the Spanish classes
of the school. This was done chiefly through the efforts of "little"
Fay McCutcheon and Senoritta Walker. Say, by the way, notice
how simple "little" Fay looks in the year book picture of the Spanish
Club. She is not really as crazy as she looks, however. Ralph Griffith needed
a shave and "Swede" Clark kept reminding him of the fact, so that accounts for
their peculiar expressions. The rest of the members were rather cold with the
exception of Mr. Wise, who was sitting on a splinter.
When the meeting of the Spanish Club was first called only a few came. After
Miss Walker had announced that the first meeting of the Club would be at the
Palace Bakery where she would act as hostess, several more got interested. There
were about twenty-five members at this meeting at the Palace. A delightful
time was had.
Before coming, Senoritta Walker invited Mr. McKean. She told him plainly
Cin Spanishj to come at seven o'clock. He misunderstood and came at six, so he
had a long time in which to brush up on his Spanish.
During the evening little typewritten slips were given to each of the members
of the Club. On these little slips were little Spanish quotations and their transla-
tions. Also a large slip of paper was passed around on which everybody had to
write fi sentence. This was rather amusing when these were read. After a lot of
talking Cmostly in EnglishD the Club adjourned with the firm resolution to meet
again soon. This was not done, however, because of various other attractions
which interfered, but no one doubts the fact that there are more good times in
store for the Spanish Club in the near future.

N the afternoon of October third, 1916, a group of music students met and or-
ganized a music club, which is now known as "Euterpe Club. " The purpose
of this club is to develop a higher appreciation for the best in music. In order
to realize this purpose our programs have been largely a concentrated study of
the great composers, beginning with Palestrina and coming down to the period of opera.
While each study has been as complete as seemed practical, we plan a more complete study
of the great composers of opera, together with a more personal acquaintance with such
operas as Weber's f'Der Freischutz ", Wagner's "Lohengrin ", Verdi's f'Aida" and Gounod's
"Faust". These works are mentioned merely to denote the character of our work.
The members of the club do not, however, spend all their energies in the study of com-
posers and musical forms, in such off hand methods as might be suggested by the above dis-
cussion. They have each taken a part either in the cast or chorus work in the Grand Opera
"A Good Social Eat", by Youth, under the direction of Herr Appetite. In the production
of this splendid work, the company had marked success from the rise of the curtain on the
opening scene, " The Combat with the Buns ", down through the successive scenes, " Pickles,
"Salads", "Fruits", " Candy", to the drowning of Marshmallow in a pool of hot chocolate.
The only error, if indeed it might be called an error, that was made during the entire per-
formance was in the first scene, in the duet between Mr. Graham and Miss Wells when they
for once took their eyes off the director, and held a long sustained crescendo over a dimin-
uendo passage in the finale to the Bun Song, "More About Buns Would I Known. Every
member of the company proved his capacity for the part assigned by meeting the full
demands of the director.

Y.. W. C., A..
The Y. NV. C. A. belongs to every girl in school. The weekly devotional meetings on Wednesday
afternoons bring the girls closer together as they discuss subjects of universal interest. The Y. W. C. A.
girls are a jolly bunch and enjoy social good times. A joint social with the Y. M. C. A. was given in the
fall, and a very successful "Kid Party" followed in the winter term.
The Association carries on several activities besides the weekly meetings. The Mission Study Class
under the leadership of Miss Root of the Department of Education is studying "The VVorld Call for Indi-
vidual Service", from a sociological viewpoint. The class is composed of both girls and boys and has a
large membership. In the summer, a Bible Study class studied "The Manhood of the Master". The
Social Service Committee, with the aid of many other girls of the school, has beautified the Girls' Rest Room
by providing pillows, a piano cover, flowers, and other things that make a room look homelike. The Y.
W. C. A. Stand is doing a flourishing business, carrying almost all school necessities except textbooks.
V The Y. W. C. A. is proud of the fact that it was one of the nine associations in this district on the Honor
Roll last year. This year, the Cabinet decided to take the Cabinet Examinations.
The Cabinet Council, consisting of delegates from all the normal school and college Y. VV. C. A.'s of
Missouri, met in Kirksville, March 16, 17, and 18, as guests of our Y. VV. C. A. Two state secretaries and
two national secretaries attended the meeting.

THE CLASS IN PERSONAL SERVICE
Y., M.. C., A.,
HE Y. M. C. A. stands for the complete development of men, in spirit, mind
and body. It is an organization which constantly seeks to exemplify applied
Christianity. Through its varied enterprises, the association finds expression
for the highest Christian principle, the spirit of altruism. The Sunday after-
noon meetings exist as a sort of a symposium for men to compare experiences and get a
tighter grip upon problems common to student life. It is a means of sharing with each
other the feelings, experiences, and longings of life. Through the lecture course provided
each year in conjunction with the Association of the A. S. O., the best talent in music and
lectures is brought Within the reach of all. Through the Book Exchange the entire student
body is given an opportunity to secure textbooks at a reasonable price and to dispose of
such books as they do not need. A Bible Study Class is conducted in which problems most
vital to young men are subjected to the light of Christian teaching, but not in a traditional
or dogmatic Way. Mr. McKean leads this Work. In connection with the Y. W. C. A., a
course in "YVorld Call to Personal Service" is offered under the leadership of Miss Root
of the Department of Rural Education.
Every summer from six to ten delegates are sent to the Student Conference at Lake
Geneva, Wisconsin, Where, under the leadership of some of the world's noblest men life
takes on a deeper, fuller, richer significance.
Two things stand out in bold relief in evcry phase of Y. M. C. A. Work-they are the
big things in life-?devotion to the life and teachings of Christ and service to men.

r The Campfires
AMPFIRE Girls is an organization of girls to develop the home spirit and to
promote happy social life. It helps girls grow into strong, efficient, loving,
womanhood by showing that romance, beauty and adventure are to be found
1 in our every-day lives, in wholesome ways. Rank and honors are based on
personal attainment. The Campfire Girls are planning to build a home, all their own,
where they may hold weekly meetings and parties. They are working hard to accomplish
this end, and hope to have in the near future a building that will develop into a truly
Campfire home. '

' "And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit,
wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind ............ let the earth bring forth living creatures after
their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their kind."-Genesis 1:11-25.
R. JACCARD is a very religious man. On being asked one day last spring
what the purpose of the Agriculture Department was, he began scratching his
head. VV e knew he was trying to recall the above verses of scripture so we
print them. This is a noble purpose, it even includes the raising of skimmed
milk calves and snakes. We notice, however, that the "propagation" of greenhouse owls
is not mentioned. Perhaps that duty rests with another department of the school.
Our Agriculture Department, whatever be its purpose, has been strengthened during
the past year. There are now three men who devote all of their time to the work. Besides
the increase in the teaching force, new equipment in the laboratories and improvements at
the State Farm indicate progress. The Farmers' Short Course held in conjunction with
the Rural Life Conference was especially good this year. The'Department has been the
means of bringing several strong men to Kirksville during the past year. The benefit to
farmers and students resulting from talks by such men as F. W. Merrill and A. Ross Hill
cannot be measured in dollars and cents.
We love our trio of "Ag Profs". Of course Mr. Jaccard's disposition has become
somewhat bilious as a result of having "to care for his own" at home. But we ca11 over-
look that. He's a good sport and we're for him. Mr. Ellison has been somewhat of a
problem. In the first place we can't tell just how old he is. Various guesses ranging from
twenty years up to fifty-two have been made, but no decision has been reached. He's mar-
ried, though, and that is the most important thing. Mr. Wright is too well known here to
get away with any of the bluffs so characteristic of college professors. Anything he ac-
complishes comes by the sweat of his brow. Any one can easily pick him out in a crowd
Cone of his duties is testing milkj by the cream on his coat. Mr. Wright proved beyond a
doubt that he is a diplomat when he "worked" the Sharples Separator Company into
furnishing him a milk clarifier to play with. He now has quite a collection of toys.
There are all kinds of students taking Agriculture. They range all the way from
'fprep " school students to Osteopaths looking for patients and Hlady friends H in the Normal
School. We wonder why agriculture is the excuse the latter make use of for being here. It
can't be because this particular course is a snap. Making garden, testing milk and going
on ten-mile hikes to judge cattle doesnit sound very "snappy", unless the ten-mile hike
comes on a day when the mercury reads 240 below.
But whatever their reason may be, we are glad to have them with us-they often
prove useful in directing the professoris attention to anatomy when the class havenit studied
0 not study at all. We do study, and we intend
the lesson. That doesn't mean that we d
to make Missouri better from our having taken agriculture in the K. S. N. S.

URAL EDUCATION is coming to the front. Since Mr. Burrows got his new
secretary there have been more young men frequent the oflice than ever before
in its history. This speaks well for the Department, but a new secretary is
not all that has been added to the Rural Education Department within the
last year. Miss Root, who took Mr. Sipple's place last spring, is winning a permanent
place in the hearts of the students by her enthusiasm for everything that points towards
progress, We are proud of her at home and we are proud of her when she represents us
away from home. Those who heard her at Lincoln this spring were proud to say, "She is
from the K. S. N. S".
Mr. Burrows really needs no comment. He is the "busy man of the faculty". His
office hours run into the night, and the latch to his oflice door hangs on the outside. One
has but to visit the Model Rural School shown on the opposite page to become acquainted
with Miss Fidler. She has done some things that are really worth while over there this
year, and she is willing to tell visitors about her work.
Now that the roses Csincere onesl have been passed around, we will proceed with the
"roasts", The first thing that must be mentioned is the fact that Mr. Burrows will be
bald headed before many moons. There are a number of possible reasons for this. He
may be hen-pecked at home, he may be over-working, or he may use too much of his hair
to test his razor. Passing to the ladies in this Department, we regret to make the rather
painful prophecy that, more than likely, Miss Root and Miss Fidler will die old maids. Mr.
Epperson has gone to the rescue of an old maid or two in the English Department, but no
one seems to have yet discovered the opportunities in the Department of Rural Educa-
tion. About the only advice that can be given is live, in hopes.
Several things that have characterized the work of the Department during the past
year might be mentioned, among them the work in Rural Sociology, the record breaking
Rural Life Conference and the new class Ain School Administration 5 but there can be no
more fitting close to the comments on Rural Education than the statement, "There is no
'Fidling' around 3 every student 'Burrows' to the fRoot'l of things".

My Thr Qriuartcrs its Wa Practice Sclliiccll
ID you ever have the good fortune to teach in the Practice School? If you
have, you will appreciate what is to follow much more than you will if you have
never had that pleasure. There is no subject that will arouse reminiscences so
quickly and easily as one's experiences in the Practice School. The students
learn to love CPD the little tots that grace the lower part of the Library Addition, and the
children win a permanent place in the hearts of their teachers. Having been asked to
write something that would bring back Practice School experiences to "Echo,' readers, I
will recount my own experiences there. I believe they are typical of what one goes
through with during three quarters of Pra.ctice School work.
The scene of my initiation was in the sixth grade rooms. The subject I taught was
Composition. Before entering upon my work I had resolved to substitute kindness for the
rod. I lay awake nights before the eventful first day planning the way in which I would
"win the hearts of my children". The first day came, and as I entered the sixth grade
room on the north side of the hall, the first thing to catch my eye was the bushy head of
Homer Phillips. I felt nervous right away, but I decided right there that what Homer
needed was " loven, and proceeded to dish it out to him in full measure. It was hard work
keeping the minds of those youngsters on the lesson that first day. Homer liked "love"
for a while, but soon returned to the primitive. I didn't sleep much that night, nor the
next. Time went on, Miss J ewett, my supervisor, was very kind, but my temper was get-
ting nasty. I smiled and "looked sweet" as long as I could, and then one day I broke
loose: "Homer Phillips, if you don't act civilized, I'll ........ ." Perhaps I'd better
skip to my second quarter's work.
This time I decided to try the primary grades. I believed I surely could 'K cow" those
little tots. I signed up for a second grade reading and phonics class. There were about as
many girls as boys in the class and we were all getting acquainted on the first day when
my joy was banished by an order to report to the Primary Office. I was the only young
man who was doing work in the primary grades and one of the young ladies had a "tuff
propositionw. This "proposition" was a class of six laggard boys who couldnit keep up
with the second grade and needed goading. Miss Kirkbride asked me to take the hard job
and let the "lady" pilot my beloved second graders. It was then and there that I wished
to meet the man who invented the word, " chivalry ". I acquiesced and began work with a
heavy heart. I am not going to give any details concerning my relations with the "noted
six", but will only say that Miss Kirkbride was merciful enough to reward my services with
My last quarter was with the Ugym. boysn. I enjoyed the quarter's work, but on the
first day of the next quarter, when I heard Gwyn and Unfer marching the boys down the
hall to the tune of "Hep! Hep! Hep! H, in spite of myself, my lips moved in a silent prayer
of thanksgiving. My three quarters were over.

ATHEMATICS-itself "The Queen of the Sciences" as Gauss phrased it-is
the necessary method of all exact investigation. Kepler exclaimed: "The
laws of nature are but mathematical thoughts of God. " It may be that not
all of the mathematical thought in and around our institution is divinely in-
spired, but we do feel safe in saying that it is very largely the foundation of exact investi-
gation. How could it be otherwise when guided, directed, and inspired by C252 of the most
brilliant mathematicians since Leonardo of Pissa. We are even now taking due cognizance
of the fact that, as has been said, there are at present very few mathematicians, and that to
one rightfully termed such, 0-X2 is as evident as 2-l-224. b
To the inexperienced it may seem that we are given to dealing in extremes, but only
let us give in slight detail something of the personnel of this quartet and all doubts will
First, let us consider the one who is by some called The Little Man of the Department,
but remember that when they dubbed him such, they were only noticing his physique and
did not take into consideration his capacity for grey matter. This remarkable capacity
we will now endeavor to show by calculating the volume of his cranial region. This region
may be accurately described as a solid, a plane cross section of which, is a semi-circle and
whose bounding curve may be denoted by the equation x2-1-2y22C. The volume, then,
of any cross-section of infinitely small thickness may be denoted by Vr0:5"T1'02AX. Since

Hence the desired volume is V 2 iff--D dx.

This is conclusive evidence of his mathematical ability.
Another member of this august group is noted for that peculiar shinyness of dome,
so characteristic of pedagogs. It was formerly supposed that this might be caused by his
pining for the fairer sex rather than his close application to study, but since his entrance,
last summer, into matrimonial affiliations has in no way allayed the expansion of that
bald spot, we feel certain that such cannot be the case. In fact, his remarkable concentra-
tion is evidenced by the fact that the surface of this spot has already reached the following
2 inches above the ears
proportions, which, since it is a zone of a sphere may be stated as S 221' yidx
blue caiiopy above
We might give additional proof of our early statements by solving in detail, for the
difference in velocity acquired by the Junior member of the Department when headed toward
Brookfield and when headed toward Kirksville. The accelerating force might also be de-
termined. Even the painstaking patience, accuracy, and stability of the Senior member
might be expressed mathematically in terms of his center of gravity. But suffice to say,
our beginning statements are already verified. So think all of the students who have com-
pleted the llhzfizematics Courses.

Physics and Chemistry
HE Science Department of the Kirksville State Normal School has done nothing
out of the ordinary during the years 1916-17. However, a brief review of the
nature of the Department and the work that it accomplishes will be of interest
to every one.
Mr. J. S. Stokes is Chairman of the Division of Science and Professor of Physics and
Physiography. All of the courses taught by him are enriched by a series of lectures on the
"Philosophy of Living ". These lectures are not the dry, H canned" material that is usually
delivered in college classes. They are based on Mr. Stokes' own life experiences, and he is
unusually apt in interweaving the story of his life with the bare facts of science. On first
thought there is, of course, a seeming inconsistency in this combination of Physical Science
and Philosophy, but Mr. Stokes readily discovers a connection between subjects which no
one else would ever see. For instance, magnetism suggests to him his early courtship and
marriage. As a result, he invariably becomes side-tracked at this point. No thorough
student of Physics in the Kirksville State Normal School finishes his course without hearing,
at least once each quarter, this tender story of how he met her in High School, etc. An-
other story which the student never escapes is the story of Mr. Stokes' graduation at Har-
vard. These are only examples of the many stories employed by Mr. Stokes to give the
student an opportunity for rest and often for sleep.
By means of the students' laboratory fee the Physics Laboratory has been handsomely
equipped. However, the eager student in his struggle for knowledge must satisfy himself
with oniy looking on while Mr. Stokes plays with the material. During most of the day
this precious material is guarded by Professor Durbin, who teaches a course in electricity.
All students who enter this class have their youthfulness strongly impressed upon them
by the condescension of Professor Durbin.
The course in Chemistry is taught by Mr. Bray. The chief part of the work is the
experimental work done in the laboratory. In contrast to the regulations in the Physics
Laboratory, the student of Chemistry is allowed free use of all materials in the Chemistry
Laboratory. He is allowed to take his Manual and go unguarded into the laboratory where
for two periods he can search diligently for material. He usually finds none. However,
if he does he is allowed to use it freely, the case being that he usually does not use it at all
for there is scarcely enough material in the laboratory to perform one experiment well.
The one valuable result to the student is that he learns to develop patience. Especially is
this true in the use of the one pair of scales which the laboratory contains. Silently and
uncomplainingly each student awaits his opportunity. The careful student never forgets
to deduct one-half of the weight recorded, for the thick coat of dirt on the scales would
render the result inaccurate otherwise, There is little wonder under these conditions that
a student manages to perform only one experiment in a day.
We regret that we have not sufficient space to dilate further on the excellent qualities
of the Science Department. However, we can say in brief that, as fully equipped for work
as this department is, we have good reason for expecting still greater things in the future
than it has ever accomplished in the past.

A Roast Like the Resp
ING to the fact that we have been asked to contribute to the f'Echo" an
account of the work done in the History and Government Department of the
Kirksville State Normal School in 1916-17 we have written this article. First
we want it to be clearly understood that we always make every effort within
our power to comply with the requests of our students and we are glad to see that almost
all the other departments of the school followed our example in promptly submitting their
contributions to the "Echo", At times it might appear that we have not shown a proper
amount of modesty. However, we have allowed candor to overstep the bounds of modesty
in our determination to reveal clearly the advantages of our Department.
We offer some of the best high school courses given in the school. We believe that
students of the tender age of high school students should have a sufficient amount of rest
and sleep. Gur high school courses are especially adapted to this need. Tired, over-
worked students can enter the sanctuary of Mr. Ott.erson's classes, where,lulled by the
soothing drone and whistling "siss" of his undisturbing voice, they can sleep contentedly
for an entire hour. This relieves the student of the unnecessary preparation that is so
often exacted by less considerate teachers, '
The college history course most patronized is the course in "Medieval and Modern
History ", taught by Mr. Violette, Head of the History and Government Department. The
first two quarters of the work consist mainly of observation work in the handling of wall
maps. By far the most interesting part of the course is the study of the present European
situation which is given in the third quarter of the work. You will judge from the following
brief outline that the course is as thorough as any given in the History Department. At
first, in order to completely upset the student and thoroughly impress him with his own
ignorance, a short examination is given on the war. This is followed by a three months raid
on the daily newspapers from which every item on the war must be carefully cut and placed
in an envelope. The wise student enlists any number of friends in this work. At the close
of the quarter Mr. Violette collects the envelopes and the student goes on his Way rejoicing,
still thinking that the Kaiser is Commander-in-Chief of the French army.
The most dreaded history course is "American Constitutional History", taught by
Mr. Fair. Mr. Fair, with due consideration for the health of his students, never assigns
more than one volume to be read each night. The chief advantage to be gained from the
course is the collection of a complete library of American Constitutional History books.
The only students entering Mr. Kingsbury's classes are those who can tolerate his
idiosyncrasies and are very much in need of practice in using the library card-case. Toward
the last of the year his classes grow smaller because many students find that they have not
the physical strength necessary to 'ftotet' the large reference books.
A new course, Sociology, was introduced into the History Department this year. The
class is taught by Mr. Rothschild. The course is one of the best offered in the school.
It embraces a very interesting study of social problems. In the Fall Quarter a social
survey of the conditions of poverty in Kirksville was made, and the results published in
pamphlet form with the hopes that some real good might result in Kirksville as a result of
"I charge thee, invite them ally let in the tide
Of knaves once more: my cooks and I'll provide".
The Banquet Squad was organized as a mere class in food preparation last September, but as time passed
our vision enlarged. Having learned a few of the principles underlying the theory of cookery, we .Were
permitted to make our first public appearance in a demonstration of our ability in preparing and serving a
verv elaborate seven course banquet to one hundred and fifty women of the State Federation of Women's
Clubs. While performing this pleasurable task, while carting the food from one end of the building to the
other, we were allowed to pass in review before the whole student body assembled in the auditorium for a
mass meeting. The remainder of the Fall Quarter was very beneficial as we learned not only the principle
of the cooking of carbohydrates and fats, but the process of digestion also, eg:

The second quarter, our fame having spread throughout the school, many girls joined our ranks in
hopes that they, too, might share the rare opportunities given the girls of this Department. In due time,
they having been faithful in little things, were made rulers over many and were allowed to assist the more
experienced girls in serving a banquet to the "KH club and their guests February 2, and a week later the
Adair County Historical Society. During the coming Spring Quarter, we are anticipating the better finished
products and further perfection of our service, for we have heard that we will be given experience in even
more elaborate service, in addition to planning and serving a 10c luncheon every week and handing in every
two weeks, "in usable form, neatly written on cards", all possible data concerning food stuffs.
Though there has been much labor involved in serving banquets and though we have sat up until one
or two o'clock every night for a week preceding the time our cards were to be handed in, and though we
had to prepare and give demonstrations, and though on general cleaning day we worked in the laboratory
until five o'clock and on other days until four, and though our teachers in other departments gave us looks
and words better not repeated, because on account of this work, we were for a time incapacitated in Latin,
English and other unimportant subjects, we know that the course has been so practical that we have gained
enough to compensate for all these evils. We feel that we have indeed been fortunate in having such an
efficient teacher and one with such personality that no girl of the Department could shirk even through
the clean ups or lose her temper, or say naughty words when the chicken was turned over or when she spilled
her chop suey in the middle of the floor or when the water poured down from above to be mopped up. It
was the personality of our teacher that enabled us to HIQEEP SMILINGH through it all.
A few of the things which helped us to bear the burden were such expressions as follows:

Diary of a lfir hzmcoiiut in Manual Traiumiimi for TR Fall Qunrurter
Sept. 13-I "entered up" in Manual Training today. Cf course it wasn't all Manual Training but
that was one subject. I never got so " balled up " in my life. I ran from the " gym. " to the office, from the
office to the Credentials Committee, from there to the Committee on Excess Credits, and goodness knows
where else. I am sure ready to "hit the tick". -
Sept. 14-Of all the tools and traps and trinkets I ever saw, McKean has them over in that squatty
building by the greenhouse. We spent the period getting "lined up" and "straightened out'!.
Sept. 21-A whole week has passed and I haven't kept my diary up to date. Well, I began making
a broomholder today. Mercy me! I didn't know there was so much "science" to the making of a common
little old thing like that. First I had to 4' draw itmg then I was sent to the lumber room for material to make
it with. By the time I got ready to start, the period was up and I "beat it".
Sept. 22-Got a lecture from McKean on f'Taking Care of My Tools". I think he chose "Ye have
been faithful in a few Qlittlej things, I will make thee ruler over many". Anyway, he brought out the point
of tending to little things and I thought he was going to do something with "thee ruler" in his hand before
he got through. I was so broke up over it all and my mind was so muddled that I spoiled a nice board, the
one I was using in making my broom holder. Then I began' to get "sore", McKean came back my way
Che knew I had Hmussed up" a boardj but I gave my head a significant toss and he took the hint and
"passed over to the other side!'.
Sept. 30-Nursing a "mashed" finger today. I whaled away and nearly flattened my foreiinger out-
said my Sunday School lesson backwards when I did it. The thing aches! aches! aches!!!
Cct. 2.-No Manual Training today-laid up with a "mashed finger".
Oct. 9-Ba ck at it again. Saw a fellow using a thing to hold a bit with today and I'll swear, I thought
it was a stomach pump. I got Hballed up" on the bits today. Mr. McKean sent me for an auger bit and
I brought back a gimlet. I can't remember the names of them all. Got my broomholder finished anyway.
Oct. 16-Cut a slice out of my thumb with a draw shave. Hang it all, I'm too tender! I wish I was
made of whang leather. Mr. McKean sent me for a brace and I supposed of course he meant something to
drink, and I came wagging a bottle of linseed oil back to him, thinking it was beer or something. I never
shall forget the look on his face. The real brace was a thing I never would have guessed.
Nov. 3-Still sawing and scraping and shaving and pounding and screwing away.
Nov. 29-It is all over. N o more Manual Training for me-that is my last quarter. I had the awful-
lest dream last night. It was about 10 o'clock in the morning, I should judge, when I thought I heard an
awful buzzing like the buzzing of scores of saws. Every now and then a huge hammer came down on some-
thing with a crash. As the dream advanced I seemed to be standing in the Manual Training room by
myself and it was dark all around. I peered around and I could plainly see the statue from the east room
walk in, point a finger at me and then say, "You kept that little knifen. My hair rose. Just then I heard
some one behind me draw a plane across a board with a loud rasping sound and a hammer hit an anvil with
a deafening roar. I tried to jump out the window, but I cut myself miserably and was thrown back into
the room where I lay on my back in a semi-conscious state. While lying there on my back I became delir-
ious and saw a strange vision:
The gimlet stabbed the auger bit,
The bevel hit the square,
The brace stepped into stop such "vice"
And duly got his share.
The draw shave grabbed the spoke shave,
About to make a spoke,
The plane tried hard to level things
And all went up in smoke-fthe breakfast bell rangj.
MANUAL TRAINING CLASS
Manual training is cultural because genuine culture is founded upon and vitally involved in utilitary activities".

HEN A. B. C. D. E. F. G. Hilgert left us and it was made known that Mr. Selby
would take his place in the Bookkeeping Department, there were some sighs of
relief and some of unpleasant anticipation. Of course Hilgert couldn't help
his nervous disposition. What if he did roll his eyes and look skyward when
perplexed? And what if he did break a dater or two once in a while when he forgot and
crashed them down on our ink-bcsmeared samples of bookkeeping? With all his short-
comings he wore a pompadour and had light hair. Both of these characteristics indicate
a f'tame" disposition. But as we let the news soak in that a red headed "prof " was com-
ing-one who parted his hair-we turned white around the gills and our knees smote to-
To make a long story short, he came and we like him immensely. He has proven to
us that red hair and control of temper can go together. The work in bookkeeping has been
enriched. A new textbook was introduced in the fall and the course is more modern than
it was. Three cheers for Selby!
But just one door farther to the east we had another change at the beginning of the
1916 summer quarter. We had become used to little Miss Hayes and thought no one could
fill her place. Miss Finegan had only been away for a year and the new commerce students
were informed by those who knew Miss Finegan that she was "a sweet little girl" but the
fellow who could get away with an erasure in her typewriting class had yet to be born.
She came with the June days and has held the fort in shorthand and typewriting ever since.
It really has been quite a treat to watch the progress some of the typewriting students
have made in argumentation. When one saw Miss Fincgan come up to Ja1'mon's machine
with a bunch of papers minus the " O. K. " mark- he knew there was a rich lesson in debating
in store. But we learned to type write and, after all, that was what we were after. Inci-
dentally we learned a few bye-words. Here is a succession of sounds often heard when
our teacher was away: pink-pink-pink pink pink punk punk-pank-pank-Oh
In the shorthand room all went well. Of course Johnson tried to get an E out of an
every-other-day attendance, but failed to "pull" that coveted letter. When C. V. Ford
had a bad lesson he could always' blame his roommate Cwonder who he wasb for coming in
late and keeping him awake. Of course no one can do good work when they need sleep.
Then, too, Ford was business manager of the year book. He and Morris could always lay
everything to the dear old " Echo". Outside of an outburst of temper from Miss Newburn
now and then, nothing else of importance has happened in shorthand. Now, at the end of
the year, we can truthfully say that we have enjoyed the work and have attained consider-
able efficiency in writing Gregg Shorthand. May those who follow us be inspired by the
fact that our footprints left on the sands of the commerce room floors go forward and not

H, what a muggy day," sighs the disappointed picnicers. "A nasty mist, a
damp, clammy atmosphere,-it's a beastly day!"
We do not cultivate the possibilities of a foggy day. We do not notice how
gentle and subdued the light falls, how softly the trees, houses and hills are
outlined. The most commonplace object is mystic in the purple spray. It is holy water
in which the world is baptized 5 it is the stuff rainbows are made of, it is the soul of the brook,
the lake, the willow-fringed river 3 it is the ghost of a departed sea, haunting our valleys
where once its body dwelt. It bathes the atmosphere, washes clean the blue dome of heav-
en, adorns the grass blades with diamonds and pearls for the appearance of their lover Sun.
Birds and beasts revel in the mist. They have not learned the mean art of complaining.
The horse lifts his head from fragrant clover blossoms, sniffs the moist fragrance into
his wide nostrils and paws the earth for joy. The gentle cow tosses her horns and digs
them into the earth, her mute way of saying " I am glad for this juicy breath of misty air. A'
The dog shakes his dripping coat and wags his tail. He finds no fault with this gray day.
Sparrows chirp in contentment. Blackbirds sing Hallelujah Choruses. Crows caw. Jays
scream their hilarious expression of approval. Only man grumbles-man, who should be
first to rejoice, first to praise, first to receive with joyous approval Nature's offering of pur-
ple-gray mist. -AN ENGL1sH STUDENT.

,Debating and Fumllnlliie Speaking
Hnterolrlernmel Seheel Debates
HE man of big ideas and sound judgment is a source of great power in the world
today, but the man of far greater influence is the one who, having big ideas, is
able to give these ideas to the world by means of eflicient speech. The influ-
ential man of today must master the art of speech. This means that he must
organize his thought through systematic reading and study, and through patient practice
acquire complete control of his body as an instrument to be used in conveying his thought.
The most enficient means of acquiring ability in extemporaneous speaking is debating.
Each year the State Normal Schools at Kirksville, Springfield, and Cape Girardeau
enter into debating contests. These debates are known as the Inter-Normal School Tri-
angular Debates. This year the debates will be held on the evening of May 11, the ques-
tion for debate being, "Resolved, That the United States should adopt the Canadian Plan
for dealing with industrial disputes. " By means of two preliminary contests, held near
the close of the Winter Quarter, a debating squad of eleven students was chosen. This
squad composes the class in debating which is given in the Spring Quarter. Later the final
teams will be chosen from this squad.
The Kirksville State Normal School fully realizes the value of debating, and the teams
chosen for the final debate always receive the full support of the school. This year the
debaters will be given a trophy in the form of a skeleton pin bearing the letters "D" and
HK". This is the first time that any special honor has been conferred upon the Kirksville
debaters, and it shows that each year the school is becoming more awakened to the fact
that debating is of great value and must be encouraged among the students by means of
proper recognition of the Work of the debaters by the school.

HE year 1916-17 has been a profitable one for the Fine Arts Department.
, To begin with, the summer term reached its largest enrollment, something
I over two hundred. Besides the regular work, Miss Patterson gave a course
1, in scenery paintings, which was well and diligently attended by a few of the
l' most talented of our number. It was well that the term ended before they had run
It out of material and turned their genius toward the transformation of our peaceful village
ir into a Viking stronghold or a modern Venice. .
,T During the fall term our dignified studio became a paradise for "Bulldogs", and at
any time of the day might be heard hoarse crys from lair 1C, but we never feared, for the
bark of the faculty member is worse than her bite.
5 The winter term was dedicated to the Year Book. We will leave it to our readers to
, judge as to the success of our work. Those few of us who survived the arduous labors of
the class in Design, who live now only to tell the tale, accept your appreciation with
sincerest gratitude. Give us designs or give us death.
m Our zeal was so great that in February Miss Lyle went forth in search of new labor.
Even as we write the preparations of our Spring Pageant are commencing and the class in
,V History and Design of Costume is here and hold full sway until May when our campus will
welcome the noble Athena, Wise Solomon, Robin Hood and many others, including Father
Time bringing us a New Year which we hope will be as happy as the past was busy, for
1,1 both students and faculty of the Art Department.

Curr' Great Cellelluireiitmiomi
T is rather unusual to begin with the end, but that is the way we chose to do.
Cn Friday, February 2, we celebrated our victorious year in baseball, football,
track and debating. '
The Student Senate was the originator of the idea of having some sort of cele-
bration in honor of the great year. After a great deal of discussion in that august body, it
was decided to have an afternoon program, consisting of speeches by prominent Kirksville
men and old alumni, and the presentation of athletic honors with 'frnusic in between".
It was a cold day and the morning classes were hurried along so that all might get an
early dinner and a nap UD before 2:30 o'clock,,the time set for the afternoon program to
begin. The auditorium had been kept closed for several hours and was nice and "cozy"
when several hundred students assembled at 2:30 o'clock. Our old friends, the Kirksville
High School Tigers, were there too. We had reserved the centre of the balcony for them.
They were all "dolled" out in their white sweaters Cthey, too, had won a championshiph.
Cn the stage were seven footballs and fourteen baseballs, spoils of war, arranged in a
very showy manner. President Holbert presided, but his modesty forced him to be intro-
duced CD to the audience by Mr. Kirk. When the boys, the baseball boys, the football
boys, the track man and our debaters, with the speakers of the afternoon, marched onto
the stage there was an outburst of sheer "bulldogism" from the crowd.
Well, to make a long story short, the band played, Professor Zeigel welcomed the
visitors, the male quartet sang, being forced to respond with two encores, W. C. McNeely
in a well-worded speech gave a brief review of the football season and presented the sweaters,
Honorable J. C. Mills, prosecuting attorney of Adair County, presented "Curly" with a
loving cup, "Curly" responded with one of his sensible and heartfelt speeches in which
he reviewed the baseball year and praised the baseball "Bulldogs", Hon. E. L. Marshall
of Chillicothe, an alumnus of the school, made a speech in which, having been given author-
ity by the Board of Regents and the Student Senate, he officially christened our athletic
field, "Kirk Field", President Kirk responded with one of his forceful speeches, and the
band played again.
But that was not all. That night there was held an athletic banquet in the art rooms
prepared by the Home Economics girls. Here is what they did there:

HE "Bulldogs" began the baseball season of 1915 with four "K" men of the previous year: Cham-
bers, captain of the team 3 Neff, the best pitcher this school has ever had, Cole, the fighting second
baseman and Browne, a man of much promise. Leo Petree a catcher, and Earl Dillinger, a fielder,
two "K" men of former years, added to the list of old men.
The first game of the season was played away from home against the strong Missouri Valley College
team of Marshall and resulted in the first, last and only defeat of the "Bulldogs" during the 1915 season.
The next day these same two teams engaged in combat, and, by displaying the true "Bulldog" spirit, the
tide of battle turned and our boys were the victors, the score being 10 to 3.
The week beginning April 24th was the most .critical of the entire season. Four games in as many days
were to be played away from home and against some of the strongest teams in the Conference. Only one
tried and experienced pitcher was to be found among the players who departed to uphold the name and fame
of the "Bulldogs", Every evening during those four critical days students and supporters of the team
eagerly awaited the brief telegraphic reports that were to tell of victory or defeat. In due time the follow-
ing reports were posted on the window of the "Owl Drug Store": i
April 24th, Missouri Wesleyan College 5, K. S. N. S. 7. '
April 25th, William Jewell College 0, K. S. N. S. 5.
April 26th, Tarkio College 12, K. S. N. S. 20.
April 27th, Maryville State Normal School 1, K. S. N. S. 4.
On the morning of April 28th the victorious team returned to Kirksville, their invasion of foreign fields
at an end and all remaining games of the season were to be played on the home field. The entire student
body, practice school, faculty and band met the team at the train, a parade formed and a grand march
through the business streets of our city followed. After the parade the team was given a great ovation in the
auditorium and school was dismissed until one o'clock.
On May 5th the people of Kirksville were given the first opportunity of the season to see the "Bull-
dogs' ' in action. That afternoon they lined up against the Osteopath team and when the smoke of battle
had cleared away their much-praised pitcher, McCrary, who started the game, was found warming the
bench and the score board showed the following result: Osteopaths 2, K. S. N. S. 4.
Central College invaded "Kirk" Field on the 8th and 9th of May and were defeated in both games by the
scores of 11 to 2 and 6 to 4. These games afforded an opportunity for a try-out of two new pitchers, namely
Hughes, who pitched the first game, and Graham, who pitched the second. During the last game Chambers,
the captain and shortstop, was hit by a pitched ball and as a result suffered a very severe injury which re-
tired him from several games.
On May 10th the Osteopaths, realizing the loss of our shortstop and captain, sought revenge for their
earlier defeat, but again their Southern League pitcher lasted just two innings and was relieved by Alexander.
But relief came too late. The "Bulldogs" were again the victors by the score of 4 to 3. Green, who earlier
in the season had been handicapped by sickness, came into his own in this game and won himself a place in
the hearts of the fans and his team mates. 1 t
May 15th and 16th the strong team from Westminster College, who earlier in the season forced Missouri
University into an extra inning game to defeat them by a 2 to 1 score, came to check our winning streak and
secure the championship for themselves. The first game Neff let them down with one hit and no scores.
During the 9 innings the "Bulldogsl' secured 2 runs. The next clay the score of two to one was duplicated.
Neff also pitched this game, allowing but two hits and striking out 13 men. .
The third and last game with the Osteopaths was played May 18 and resulted in a score of 5 to 1. It
looked until the last inning as if our opponents would be shut out, but a scratch hit and an error gave them
their lone score. The three Dillinger brothers in the fields played brilliantly and their timely hitting was a
big factor in the "Bulldogs," scoring ability. '
May 22nd and 23rd brought the season to a close. The Missouri Wesleyan College team came our
field and lost the first game 9 to 0. Griffith, a new man on the mound for the " Bulldogs", held the 'visitors
in excellent style. The last game was the deciding game of the championship race. In the early innings thc
ANE-fi?'i25f.3s..-... asblake. Awil.
teain played poorly and displayed the poorest spirit shown throughout the SCZELSOII. Missouri VVesleyan
secured a big lead, but the substitution of Neil and memories of the fighting spirit of the "Bulldogs"
brought about the desired change in the spirit. The team became as a unit, the batters began to connect
with the ball for hits, and what seemed a certain defeat was turned into a 5 to 4 victory and the sun that
clay set on "Kirk Field", the home of the 1916 State Champions.

P J. COLE, HPALEYU Edina, Mo,
If size was a prime requisite in baseball, "Paley"
probably wouldn't amount to much. As it is, though,
he amounts to considerable. For two years he has
performed around second base in a manner to please
both the fans and the coach. He is captain of this
year's team and is expected to play his old position.
"Paley" is a first class fielder and a good batter.
His size is a source of great trouble to the pitcher,
mainly because the pitcher has such a small mark to
shoot at. As a result of this "Paley" gets lots of
LEO H PETREE BIG PETF St Joseph, Mo.
"Pete" was the champion Slugger of the 1916
Champion " Bulldogs". His great stick work brought
in many a run last spring. Baseball fans will long
remember a certain memorable occasion when " Pete"
sent the pill over the high south fence and into the
lake. The next day against the same team, Missouri
Wesleyan, with the championship hanging in the
balance, "Pete" drove in the winning runs. It was
in the eighth inning, the score stood four to three
against us with two out, two on, and "Big Pete"
at the bat. The big boy clouted the ball for two
bases and the championship was won.
"Pete" has stood behind the bat for three years,
1911, 1912, and 1915. He will be with us again this
ROY T. NEFF, HRoY" Hagarsgrove, Mo.
Neff will long live in the hearts of his school-
mates as one of the best pitchers K. S. N. S. has ever
had. In the pinches Neff was always ready to go in
and save the day. Last year he won from West-
minster two days in succession. He humbled the
proud and boastful Osteopaths three times, and
pitched thc team to victory over the mighty William
Jewellites by a five to nothing score and against Mary-
ville by a four to one score. He was undoubtedly the
best pitcher in the Conference. Roy graduated last
spring and also played his fourth year on the team.
He is teaching in the high school at Hannibal, Mo.,
T. GREEN, ToMMi Goldsberry, Mo.
This young chap is eighteen years old and
weighs 145 pounds. Last spring he was an unknown
quantity to the Kirksville fans, but after a few weeks
of practice he seemed to be headed for a place on the
team. At this particular time he took the measles
and had to go home for several days. VVhen he came
back he thought his chances for winning a "K"
were about gone, but he went to work harder than
ever. When Bill got hurt "Tommy" took short-
stop's position and made good. He was a mightily
tickled boy when he got to play enough to win his
letter. f'Tommy" will be out for the team this
spring and will make it or make some one else work
LLOYD E BROWNE BROWNIE K1FkSV1lle,MO.
JIMMIE DILLINGER, HJIMMIEH Reger, Mo.
In point of age "Jimmie" is the middle portion
of the "Dillinger" outfield combination, but in point
of height he ranks first. "Jimmie'l spent his time
catching high ones out in right field or in doing the
seemingly impossible stunt of doubling his long frame
up enough to reach down to the ground for a low
one. Last spring was "Jimmie's" first year on the
team. He will be out this year for a berth on the
Brownie is an extremely versatile young fel-
low to have around on a ball team. He can play
almost any position except perhaps pitcher or catch-
er. In 1915 he started out playing left field but was
soon shifted to third base. Last year he started out
to cinch third base but when it became evident that
a first sacker must be had, f'Brownie" went to first.
"Brownie" is a good, clean fielder. He is in school
this year which of course means that he will be out for
W. CHAMBERS, HBILLH Purdin, Mo.
"Bill's" particular hobby is picking up hot ground-
ers between second and third base and then shooting
the ball to first with a fast, sure throw. "Bill" has
played the shortstop position with us for the last
three consecutive years.. Last year he had the mis-
fortune to get hit by a pitched ball in a game with
Central College which caused him to miss several
games. "Bill" only has one more year to play with the
"Bulldogs". We will be sorry when his four years
on the team are gone, becausea short stop like him
isn' t picked up in school every day.
THOMAS EARLE DILLINGER, HELARLEH Reger, Mo.
Earle is the Senior member of the famous "Dil-
linger" outfield. He has played two years on the
team. His first year was spent around second base,
while last year he made himself extremely useful by
catchingihigh flies out in center field. Earle is a good
hitter, a good base-runner and an excellent fielder.
He is in school this year and of course will be out for
GLENN DILLINGER, HGLENNH Reger, Mo.
" Glenn" is the junior member of the "Dil1inger,',
outfield, but he didntt let his brothers take all the
honors just because they were the oldest. If you
don't think so, just look at his batting average. Glenn
played a steady game in left field and ranked well up
in front when it came to batting. He captured one
of the "Shower-sticksn offered 'by Mr. Kirk for home
runs. 'fGlenn" is in school this year. Will there
RAY BARTLETT, "BART" Kirksville, Mo.
"Bart," otherwise known as "Laboratory",
because on one of the trips last year he innocently
referred to a dormitory as a laboratory, was our third
baseman last year. Bart is a first rate batter and a
good fielder. In one game against the Osteopaths he
got two hits which indeed were bitter pills for them.
He will not be in school this year, so another third
sacker will have to be provided.
be another Dillinger outfield?
W XLLACE GRAVES COLONEL Kirksville, Mo.
OTTO GRAHAM, "WH1sKEY"
"Whiskey" didnlt make his "K" last year, but
his noble services in yell leading during the fall en-
titles him to a place "with the great". He was a
substitute at "hurling the orb" and will be out for
the job again this year in all probability.
Colonel is our famous discus man. He now
holds the Conference record with a throw of 111 feet
made in the state meet at Tarkio last spring. In
1913 he won first place in the same event at the state
meet with a throw of 109 feet. The 'fColonel's"
discus throwing has won him two "K" sweaters and
two beautiful gold medals. He hopes to set up a
record in the discus this spring which will stand for
Wallace also played left guard on the football
team of 1911. He graduates this year. He is twenty-
six years of age and weighs 185 pounds.
HE 1916 season opened October 7th at Marshall, "Bulldogs" vs M. V. C. At that time the "Bull-
dogs" were an unknown quantity, and judging from the fight they put up, they were no more than
inexperienced pups. It was fortunate for Kirksville that Missouri Valley had a weak team, for if
they had been strong, all our hopes would have been blighted then and there. But, as it was, Kirksville
realized her weakness and went to work in earnest. The next week saw great improvement in tackling,
running interference and carrying the ball.
No one conceded us a chance to beat the Central "Eagles" The "Bulldogs,' had on their fightin
c othes that day. The 'I-Eagles" were also groomed for victory. When the final whistle blew the score
stood 19-7 in the "Bulldogs"' favor.
"Jim" Pixley's aggregation of preachers from Cameron were the next to call the "Bulldo s" from th '
- g e1r
kennel. The latter met the preachers with fear and determination for the preachers had taught us the
year before that th '
ey were real fighters. The final count stood 20 to 0 in favor of the howling canine bunch.
It was in this game that the "Bulldogs,' showed their strength A "Blue J " b
. ' ay scout o served the game
and, judging from the odds the gamblers wished in Fulton the next week when the "Bulldogs" visited the
saucy birds, the said soft shoe man must have given an unfavorable report.
The week preceding the Westminster game was a discouraging one. Things didn't go well. The
KlBll11d ff ' 7
ogs didn t seem to have the pep. The coach plead, threatened and almost swore to arouse their
anger. It had some effect. They showed signs of fight in Mexico during the workout at Missouri Mili-
tar A d Th d ' ' '
y ca emy urs ay afternoon, but not enough to give the coach an appetite. On Friday afternoon
the delicate appetite of the coach was restored. The Blue Jays were game birds, but couldn't stop the
ferocious plunges of Dye and Petree. The result was: "Bulldogs" 25, 'fBlue Jays" 0.
The skirmish at Westminster sharpened the ever ravenous appetite of the whole squad The bi red
delegation from William Jewell came to the "Bulldogs' " kennel November 10th. It was a struggle from

eglnmng to end. The result was inevitable-Liberty 12, K. S. N. S. 14. One might put in the if's and
and's of the game, but 12-14 tells the story. V.
The "Bulldogs" next went over to sup with the preachers at Canton, Mo. The results of victory had
begun to tell on the "Bulldogs". They came near meeting their Waterloo at Canton. The K. S. N. S.
boys acquired a habit of fumbling in that game, which almost caused their downfall. The preachers scored
early in the game but never threatened afterwards. The final count stood 12-6 in the "Bulldogs"' favor.
The pedagogs at Springfield next acted as hostess to the gentle "Buldogs". The pups still were play-
ing in their worst form. Had either of these last two games come a week sooner or a week later, the results
would have been different. The best that the "Bulldogs" could do was a 6-6 draw at Springfield.
Turkey day found the Maryville "Bear Cats" playing the "Bulldogs", The Maryville boys were
game, a clean bunch of sports, and did their best to stop the heartless dogs, but being new at the game, they
lost by the score 93-0.
Thus ended the 1916 season, successful from the standpoint that nobody expected anything from the
"Bulldogs" 3 successful from the standpoint that they won a state championship, had three men on the All
Missouri first team, one on the second and one on the third 3 successful from the standpoint that the "Bull-
dogs" played clean football, worked hard had a good coach and were loyally supported by a lo al facult

E. NEALE-"DAVE 'l Kirksville, Mo.
"Dave" is a great football man and a great boos-
ter for the Purple and the White. In his position at
left tackle last year he played a great game. In fact,
he was chosen for the All-State team. " Dave " always
gave his bestj There were no off days for him. " Dave"
can't play any more football for us as last year was his
fourth year on the team.
LEO H PETREI1, BIG PETE bt Joseph, Mo. ff! .Z
This husky gentleman has been our fullback
for the past two seasons. Last season he made full-
back on the All-State team. "Pete's" 188 pounds of
bone and muscle will make a dent in almost any line.
His specialty last fall was blocking punts. In the
game with William Jewell he blocked two punts which
virtually won the game for us as touchdowns were
made by our boys from each one of them. " Pete" is a
good punter and goal kicker and hits the line hard.
We lose him this year by graduation. We might
wonder who our kicker will be next fall.
In addition to his football and baseball, " Petey' is
also a track man. He won his letter putting the shot
in 1913 and again in 1914. Here's hoping he can win
with the shot again this spring.
. 5 .
, snniuo DYE-Hsm" Bevier, MO.
"Sed', has won his letter twice in football. In
1915 he played in the line, but last fall he was shifted
to left half. His 180 pounds of bone, muscle, and grit
was a great factor in the race for the championship
last fall. Against William Jewell's powerful team he
was a steady gainer. "Sed" is captain-elect for next
year's team. VVe can predict a great team for next
year with "Sed', in the back field.
In addition to his football, "Sed" is a shot putter
and discus thrower of no mean ability. Last year he
won first place with the shot and second place with
the discus, in the state meet at Tarkio.
CLYDE CASSIDY-'fCAss1DY" Brookfield, Mo.
. "Cassidyl' came to us last fall after having
had four years of football in Brookfield High School.
While his weight isn't extraordinary, his speed makes
him a valuable man in the backfield. He played
right half last fall. He is a clever kicker as well as a
good runner. Last fall in the game against Mary-
ville he kicked the ball into the lake twice when
kicking goal, after a touchdown had been made. A
slow, expressive smile spread over the face of the
coach after each kick.
ROBERT HOFF-" SNAPPER "
Bob played center on the teams of 1915 and 1916.
He weighs 172 pounds and is twenty-one years old.
"Snapper" did his share in making the airtight line
that did so much to win the championship last fall.
He has two more years to play with the "Bulldogs".
He intends to be back next fall ready to defend his
place at center against all comers.
S'1 ILPHEN PAINE-"STEVE" Kirksville, Mo.
f'SteVe" is our dependable little quarterback.
He was the youngest man on last fall's team, but he
played the game anyway. He is seventeen years old
and weighs 142 pounds. 'fSteve'l played football 0119
year for Kirksville High School. He intends to be
back next fall to help pull down another champion-
ALVA MOTTER-"CHEROKEE" Novinger, Mo.
"Cherokee", commonly called 'fCherry", is
twenty years old and weighs 160 pounds. This
fleet youngster made All-State end last season. He
has played right end for K. S. N. S. for the past two
years. "Cherry'sl' hobby is smearing up end runs
and tearing down the field after a punt and nailing
the receiver in his tracks. "Cherryl' can give us two
more years of football yet before becoming ineligible
to play on a conference team. With him on the squad,
the coach won't have to worry any about the position
of right end. V
'fLook out boys! Itls a fake!"
EMMETT S. FINLEY--'ASLIMH Madison, Mo.
Here is the heaviest man on our last year's foot-
ball team. He only weighs 210 pounds and is nine-
teen years old. The second game of football he ever
saw was the first game he played in and he says he
didn't get to see much of it because the fellow in
front of him took so much watching. Finley played
right guard last year and intends to come back next
fall to help turn out another championship team.

J E. AESCHLIMAN-"JOHNNY" Lancaster, Mo.
"Johnny" is a blue-eyed German. The great de-
sire of his school career has been to win a UK". Last
fall he played the game and won out. At substitute
guard and center he got into the fray several times, and
while there he upheld the fighting traditions of his
race. f'Johnny" is twenty-eight years old and Weighs
165 pounds. He will be back next fall to help punch
holes in the championship aspirations of the other
teams of the conference.
ROY INBODY-" ROY " Kirksville, Mo.
Roy was the midget of last year's team. He is
twenty-three years old and weighs 135 pounds. He
is as hard as a nail and can stand lots of punishment.
Roy played one year of football on the Kirksville
High School team. On the t'Bulldog" team of last
year he played a steady game at quarterback. Roy
graduates this year, so he will never call signals for
K. S. N. S. again.
R R. CAMMACIQ-KIRALPH7, Williamstown, Mo.
This hefty chap has the strength and courage
of a young Hercules. For two years he has played
the position of left guard. Ralph is a powerfully
built young fellow. His opponents do not gain much
ground through his part of the line. Next fall he will
again appear in football harness to defend the athletic
honors of K. S. N. S. Ralph is twenty-two years old
and weighs 182 pounds.
FRANK COLLINS-" BLACKIE " Atlanta, Mo.
"Blackie" acquired his nickname from his jet-
black hair. He isn't very big but he plays the game
just the same. In 1915 he was substitute halfback
and quarter, but did not get his letter. In 1916 he
was utility halfback and got to make his letter. He
will be back next fall for a bigger year of football

Extracts from the Diary of a Yountlhfunll
Sept. 12-When I enrolled today, Mr. P- said that I ought to take a drill, and put down Physical
Education 1 on my card. I suppose the women should get ready to do their part in case of war, and if I
take drill here, I won't have to go to a summer camp to learn how to be a soldierette.
Sept. 14-Had to write an essay the first day Cas if we wouldn't have enough composition workin
Englishb on why we are taking this course in Physical Education. I said I took it expecting to become more
graceful, and to be able to teach swimming. CFor it seems, from what the girls say, that this isnit EXACTLY
the same as military drill, though something like it.j
Sept. 17-Physical examination. Say, I didn't know there were so many bones and things to measure.
My strength tests didn't show very much muscular development, but the teacher said it was evident that
my lung capacity was good. She wants us to be outdoors at least two hours a day, so after school I went
for a long walk with Howard T-.
' Sept. 19-I don't see myself taking any outdoor exercise today. I can scarcely walk and nearly scream
every time I go up or down stairs. I told Miss W-, for I thought it might be serious, but she just LAUGHED,
and told me to go on exercising the lazy muscles and they would soon stop complaining. I have fallen off
half a pound since school began.
Oct. 3-We learned a cute folk dance today. I would have got it just swell only I had such a stupid
partner. And she had the nerve to tell me that we would get along better if I would pay attention to the
directions instead of making up steps of my own. ...... .. .I wonder if I really have Terpisshorean talent.
It wouldn't be bad to be a second Madame Pavlowa, with the world at your feet. I have gained a pound.
Oct. 20-Well, I can't swing Indian Clubs. There is no use. Coordination may be important, but
Ilve always heard it was better to put your mind on one thing and do it well, than to try to carry on several
varied activities at the same time.

Nov. 1-Basketball is lots of fun. I wished on the new moon last night that I would make my class
team and that we would win the school championship. Then, when I go home Bob can't brag all the time
about his old football. I am going to play in the spring tennis tournament, too. Miss W- said maybe
some public spirited citizen or member of the alumni would donate a cup, by that time, for the girls to play
for. Perhaps, if I went in for it seriously, I might win a whole cupboard full of cups, like Mary Brown
or that Molla Somebody.
Jan. 13-Aesthetic dancing is really my forte, I believe. I could dance the American Beauty waltz
forever! But it certainly is tiresome, and foolish, it seems to me, to waste so much time on those prelim-
inary exercises. SHE says they are just as necessary as the practice of scale: by the pianist, but I never did
see the use of them, either. And why don't we have dancing every day? Some of it is hard, but not so
hard as that prone falling posture, or doing stunts on the ladder. Pearl likes those things best of all, and
Ruth would rather swing Indian Clubs than eat. But, of course, they shine in those exercises. I am sur-
prised to find that with all this hard work, I have gained two pounds. I believe the scales are wrong.
Feb'y. 20-Practicing in all my odd moments on the Sailor's Hornpipe, which we have to give for
examination, as a solo dance. It isn't so easy as it seems, to get out there alone before the class and remem-
ber the figures and do them in good form. But there is one consolation, everybody is in the same boat.
March 10-Well our team won one game, anyway, though not the one I played in. I bet I'll get on that
All-Star team next year. I didn't know about it beforehand, or I would have made it this time.
April 4-Every one is talking about the spring Pageant. 'Iliere are to be a lot of Egyptian and other
pre-historic dances in it. Wouldn't it be great if I could be Cleopatria doing a solo dance, surrounded by
my maidens! ...... I don't know whether I'd rather do that or win the tennis tournament. C- D- says
that since I've never played, I'll find some trouble defeating that big girl who has won all the cups, so far.
Sometimes it seems as if all this struggle for the serious things of life is hardly worth while, after all.
I've a notion to give it all up and content myself with being a mere society bud. ...... Ho hum. ..... .I
have fallen off three-quarters of a pound.
We have been taught that there is a time during school life when we work for the offered prize, and,
that as we grow wiser we work for the joy of working. This is true not only when we work to develop our
brains, but also when working to develop our muscles.
Although the girls of K. S. N. S. are not offered prizes, such as the much coveted sweaters of the boys
for their work in athletics, they, nevertheless, exhibit their athletic spirit in various ways. This spirit was
shown in the enthusiasm aroused during the practice tennis tournament played last autumn.
Owing to the everchanging Missouri weather this tournament probably lasted longer than was well for
the nerves of some of the participants, and all matches had not been played until late November.
The longest and perhaps the most closely contested match was played by Alice Gentry and Jeanne
Quintal. Miss Gentry won the first set, 15-13, and was within one point of winning the second when Miss
Quintal's everlasting smile faded into a look of determination and she won the second set and also the match.
Since the finals were between the same players this fall as in 1915, the interest in the match was
increased two-fold. But, as before, the invincible "Er-min-y" won the match and tournament, defeating
Phyllis Bryson Q6-25 C6-45. The girls are expecting to have another tournament in the spring, not a prac-
tice tournament, but one deciding the championship among the girls of the school.
Those playing in the autumn were Louise Derby, Minnie Brott, Ted Kirk, Mabel Crump, Lulu Wil-
liams, Kathryn Burton, Alice Gentry, Lena Bowen, Clive Davis, Jeanne Quintal, Ethel Barton, Alpha
Dudley, Julia Briggs, Jewell Rhoades, Ruth Music, Phyllis Bryson, Viola Lovett, Esther Dudley, Ruth
Howerton, Evangeline Webber, Mabel Rinehart, Irvie Lee Yowell, Olive Mudra, Ruby Yowell, Lenore
Powell, Elizabeth Ryle and Ermine Thompson.
asllsettlbvaillll for Girls
Before the basketball season of 1916-1917 the girls of our school had never shown much interest in
basketball. It was probably not the girls' fault, but was caused by not having some one to start the move-
ment. Last year there was a series of class games played, but outside of the girls who played, only a few were
interested enough to come to the games.
This year, however, girls' basketball took a decided leap towards popularity. Some of the old "pep"
of the K. S. N. S. students, which is always brought forth by the appearance of the 1' Bulldogs", was shown
in the closely contested class games in this season's series.
Three class teams were organized, a High School team, a Freshman team, and a Sophomore team.
Edith Cain was elected captain of the High School team, Grace Smoot of the Freshman and Elizabeth Ryle
of the Sophomore teams. A series of three games was played, the first between the High School and Sopho-
more teams, the second between the Freshman and High School teams and the third game between the
Freshman and Sophomore teams. All three games were closely contested, the second game being a tie
which was played off in extra time. Probably the most 'tpepn was shown in the last game. The game was
played in the evening in the girls' gymnasium. The ever present school spirit was out in full force. Both
teams had good backing, especially the Sophomore girls. Their class had organized a rooting squad and
had elected a yell leader. The game ended in a victory for the Sophomore team.
Although the basketball season was apparently over for the girls, in reality the game did not finish their
good times. As soon as they could change their conventional middy blouses and bloomers for their very
best clothes they were shown to the Domestic Science rooms, where their coach and director, Miss Williams,
had had a lunch prepared for them. After eating, several speeches were made by different members of the
teams, and finally, one by Miss Williams.
The girls feel that they owe a great deal to Miss VVilliams. She has been the one who has started the
enthusiasm among the girls for basketball and who has led the girls through their practices and games and
helped them to cultivate a good, wholesome, true athletic spirit towards each other.

Phi Lambda Epsiillenn
HE Phi Lambda Epsilon Fraternity was founded at Clinton Academy, Clinton,
Mo., February 12, 1892. C. F. Lamkin, R. H. McKee, F. T. Nichols, and
F. B. Owen organized themselves in December, 1891. By February 12, ar-
rangements had been completed and the first formal meeting of the new so-
ciety was held on that date. The first person initiated was E. M. Violette. Shortly after-
wards V. W. Lamkin was taken in and the first year closed with six members.
In the summer of 1893 a chapter was installed at the Warrensburg State Normal
School. In February, 1894, a chapter was organized in the Normal School at Kirksville.
Samuel H. Ellison was the first man initiated. Missouri Gamma Chapter at Kirksville
has had the longest continuous existence of any chapter in the Fraternity.
Phi Lambda Epsilon now has chapters in schools from Illinois to California.
Missouri Gamma Chapter has always been able to give a good account of itself in all
forms of school activities, and, as a part of the school, never fails to boost for K. S. N. S.
whenever it is possible.

s FTER considering the matter carefully, we have decided to devote one page to
explanations of this book, and advice to the 1918 year book staff. First,
there are several things in the 1917 Echo that need explaining. It is
.a product of the K. S. N. S. student body. We have endeavored to entertain
as well as inform our readers If there is any division of the book whose purpose is not
clear, it is probably the division entitled "Departments", In this part of the book we
have attempted to represent something of what has been done in each department during
the last year, and at the same time furnish enough fun to hold the interest of the typical
year book reader. Year book readers will not read the heavy bulletin-style material.
They are looking, first of all, for entertainment, and secondly, for their own pictures. The
"Department" write-ups are for the most part "roasts", each department being written
by a student who has taken considerable work in that department. There is no cause for
offense. A year book is not a bulletin, and we must have our fun. VVe don't mean half of
what we say in our "roasts,'. .
The motto adopted in our "Jokes Department", which is combined with the advertising
at the request of our advertisers, is, "A lukewarm joke is about as interesting as a glass of
dish water. " We hereby request those who have been overlooked in the "Jokes" not to
be offended. We didn't have room for all. And, if there is any one who hasn't yet
learned how to take a joke, 1917 is a good year to begin learning.
Cf course there will be a year book published in 1918 and we wish to give the staff mem-
bers the benefit of some of the things "experience" has taught us. Please note the fol-
1. Organize your class in the early fall and elect your year book staff at once. No staff
elected in January can do a book justice and put it in the hands of readers by May. The
fall is the richest time of the whole year in which to be silently collecting year book material.
2. Right on the start, set the price of your book high enough so you will not have to
charge the organizations for space. That was one of our mistakes.
3. Artists and photographers seem agreed on the fact that a plain oval on a plain white
page is decidedly the worst way of putting a picture in a year book. Panels or plates are
much better. .
4 In choosin our photographer and engraver consider three points, Cab quality,
. g y 7
Cbj service, Ccj price, named in the order of their importance.
5. Push your pictures and engraving work, they are the things that hold up a year
book. Make definite appointments at the photograplier's, yourself, for every individual
and group in school, otherwise, you will never get their pictures taken.
6. Good copy cannot be secured on short notice. Be working on it all year.

A STER N CLIMAX
To my somnalent ears there was borne
from the mystic Arcadia of fair dreams,
such a reverie, it seemed, as only the gods
could hear and yet live. Softer were the
strains than the flutter of fairy wings,-
gentler than the incense laden zephyrs of
Paradise. I dared not breathe lest the en-
chantment of that Sybilline chorus should
be broken, lest the slightest sound or dis-
turbance of the atmosphere should make a
discordant note in its divine Qiarmony.
Slowly the volume increased until a grand
crescendo awakened reverberating echoes
from the remotest crevices of the universe.
Slowly, by insensible gradations, the measure
died into reverent silence-a musical si-
lence it was, in which the distillation of a
pearly dewdrop would have created an in-

pierced by a clanging, buzzing, shrieking
clamor. All the demons of the nether world
reinforced with the syncopations of the
latest popular musical hits and the wails of
all the fallen angels and men since the days
of Lucifer could hardly be conceded the
power of raising such an agony of awesome
sound. With a scream of terror I sprang
into the frigid atmosphere of my room.

THE OR AL SCHOOL
This, the oldest of the Missouri Normal Schools, will seek to con-
tinue its leadership in the preparation of high-class teachers for public
schools of all kinds and grades. A
It therefore invites all the ambitious young intending teachers to
enter its classes 'and compete in thc effort to secure the best intelligence,
the greatest attainable skill, and the highest moral character.
It has a unique history hardly equaled by that of any other Normal
School or College. Its graduates held the state superintendency, of
schools in lVIissouri for 20 years, the state superintendency of schools in
California, 8 years, the governorship of Iowa, 4 years, professorships in
many institutions, the presidencies of three of the largest state normal
schools in 1917, the superintendencies of many city and county school
systems, positions in many high schools and in rural and other elementary
schools, and in colleges and kindergartens and supervisorships. It is
a very large institution, as the following table shows:
Enrollment of resident students, 1916 ....... . ..... 2150
Average daily attendance, 44 weeks, 1916 .... ............... 8 07
Number enrolled in residence, biennial period, 1915-1916 .... . .3200
Number non-resident reading circle students, 1915-1916 ...... 1150
Total number resident and non-resident students, 1915-1916. .4350
Average age of all students, in years .... ..........,......... 2 25
QNOTE: Practice School children are not counted in these listsj
' The Normal School at Kirlcsville offers the best sort of high school
courses needed for intending teachers who have not yet completed their
high school studies, but more than 70 pcr cent of its students are of col-
lege grade. Therefore, this Normal School parallels the best academic
and pedagogic courses of College Union colleges, four-year teachers col-
leges, and the schools of education. It confers an elementary state cer-
tificate, based on 30 semester hours covered in one year above high school,
also, diplomas for two years, three years, and four years above high
school-all culminating in the degree, Bachelor of Science in Education,
and leading to graduate courses in universities.
JOHN R. KIRK, President
MARY 'S LOAF
Mary had a loaf of bread,
And it was dry and staleg
Then to a boarding house she sped
And there she made a sale.
The bread was handed out one day
W'hen it was four weeks old,
TYith beans as an auxilliary
And water clear and cold.
And then the boys rejected it,
But still it lingered near,
Till it was worn out bit by bit
In six months or a year.
Then in tomato juice 'twas dipped
And brought back in a bowl,
The eager lads the good soup sipped
Then ate it, one and all.
"VV hat makes you boys like light-bread so? "
The eager landlord cried.
'tBeeause it's all we have you know",
The hungry boys replied.

JULIUS QUIGLEY'S SENTIMENQIS
The time l've lost in wooing,
In watching and pursuing
The light that lies
In women's eyes,
Has been my grade's undoing.
Though Wisdom oft has sought me,
l've scorned the love she's brought
My only books
Were woman's looks,
And folly's all they've taguht me.
