There was a class of ' 04, Whose wondrous deeds I now implore You to hearken to. For ' twas a class without a doubt Of poets rare and maids devout. Of girls plenty and boys four, This class had want of little more. Class meetings, too, were our delight ; For they were full of life and light On subjects dark as night. Class Spirit ! Did we have it ? " Yea. " So our class president did say. But ' twas too much of bogus kind. Then straightway we did turn us round, And quickly of the right kind found. We altogether then did work, And no one of the class would shirk, Until this book of books was done. And here it is, so full of lore As doth become the class of ' 04. M. E., S. ' 04. Remember me as you pass by As you are now so once was I, As I am now st you will be, Prepare for NORMAL and follow me. EDWARD T. PIERCE: WE SALUTE YOU. Life and labor are prime factors in our educational progress. They are the forces which vitalize college endowments and state appropriations ; they, the gift which Edward T. Pierce has given to this State and City during his ten years ' connection with the Los Angeles Normal School. Ten years ago the student entered the south door as we do now, but had exhausted class rooms, offices, gymnasium, and all other school accommodations when, after going up and down stairs, he had reached the little rise that we now notice in the floor of our entrance hall. Now he would pass on through many feet of hall way, peer into large and airy classrooms and a spacious library, walk through a glass-walled students ' hall into a roomy gymnasium, and up and down stairs into a sunny, airy, lunch room with adjoining kitchen, into well-equipped sloyd rooms, enlarged Training School, well-furnished, ornamented and lighted Assem- bly Hall, and would realize, even before he was told of the Students " Loan Fund, the physical laboratory, the chemical laboratory, the children ' s garden, the yearly Exponent, the enlarged course in drawing, the added Chairs of Reading and of Supervising Principal of Pedagogy, that life and labor had been brought to this institution by its honored head. Hundreds of teachers in our state who are extolled for their prompt- ness in discharge of duty, for their exquisite neatness of person, for their careful planning of work, for their punctilious care of public property, for their order in all things, point uith pride to their Alma Mater and say: " There had we our example. " And thus it is, with appreciation of his labor and his life here, that the Normal School extends the God-be-with-you hand to our outgoing Pres- ident. EDITORIAL To our dear friends of the Los Angeles Normal School we offer greetings in this little book. Keep it, and reread it once in a while, for you must not forget us — we can never forget you. The manv sentiments we have heard and read that graduating classes always give their schoolmates and teachers have usually filled us with a kind of pity, as we think, " Just listen to their talk, when everyone knows they are full of joy because their work in school is over. " We almost thought them hypocrites. Now our turn has come. For the first time we appreciate the thoughts and feelings of our predecessors, and as each day goes by they appeal to us yet more strongly. Oi course, we are glad we have succeeded in making of ourselves, or in letting others make of us, what we wish to be ; but we are sorry to leave our old friends, and to assume a greater responsibility than we have yet known. There have been many more things this term to affect the Seniors than is usual. Several of our friends in the faculty have left, and both Dr. Small and Miss Dunn have been ill. There were some things, however, that we could rejoice over, and most of the teachers have done their best to keep us happy, though busy. This applies particularly to Mr. Kirk. You can judge for yourselves, when you read our " joshes. " We want to give three cheers for our faculty, for it is the best in the land. All are more than teachers ; they are kind friends to each student. Remember this fact. Juniors, for they will help you make the most of vour opportunities, if you will only let them. Only too soon you will be where we are now, perhaps with regret that you have not always done the best you could, and certainly with regret that you must leave the school you have attended so long. This is not a sermon, so please do not take it as one. Just read it, and remember that we are sorry to leave you, and we want only to leave this book in your hands to amuse and remind you of the Summer Class of 1904. I. E. F. CLASS OFFICERS Gertrude Ott, President. Bert M. Carner, Treasurer. Annabelle Mitchell, Vice-Prest. Ellice A Gill, Secretary. Sept. 4, 1903.— The saints be praised ! This day is over, and I ' m still alive to tell the tale, but that ' s about all. I feel as if " a rag, a bone and a hank of hair " is all there is left of me. Oh ! those miserable wretches ! I never knew what I was getting into, or I would never have been caught within a hundred yards of the Normal School. Etta Ayres said right along that she knezv what she was coming to — so when we heard the steady tramp, tramp of small feet down the hall she threw up her hands in abject despair and cried: " Oh! girls! they ' re coming, they ' re coming! " just as though it were a bloody band of hostile Hottentots swooping down upon us. Would that it had been the Hottentots ! Life would have been more pleasant for the time being. Some poor deluded educator of ancient days has advanced the insane theory that children are born good. I ' d give my kingdom to find that man. Yet I can see how he could be led into making such a rash statement, for the little rascals look innocent — they looked innocent todaj- — but they can ' t fool me ; the little scamps belie their looks. After my experience today, nothing can change my firm belief in original sin — I don ' t care what Milton, Rousseau, Pestalozzi or anyone else says to the contrary. I ' m not alone in my belief, eithej — there are just exactly fifty-five other Senior B ' s who are as firmly grounded as I. Ah ! me ! I sigh when I think of the lasting and unutter- able changes that have taken place in this short day. Just this morning I started out blithe and gaj — hadn ' t taught a day in my life — was a raw, inexperienced teacher. Tonight I feel as though I had taught for years and had enough experience to deserve a life diploma. The worst of it is that I am branded now. I shall always, always be a schoolma ' am — ■ they say one day marks you for life — that, no matter where you go or what you do, you will never, never get the marks of " schoolma ' am " rubbed off. Sept. 12. — They say there ' s a silver lining to every cloud. Seems to me it ' s just about time for the silver lining of this school teaching to put in its appearance. Been at it a week now, and must say I ' d just as soon preside over so many monkeys. The critic teacher hasn ' t been in yet. Thank heaven for that ! Sept. 29. — School teaching is the greatest fun! The critics are really jolly. Not what I expected at all. Ihe children are just too cute for anything. Just this morning an infant came running up with a gelatinous mass in his hand, crying out : " Oh, teacher, do look at my pollywog seeds ! I found them in the pond. " The other morning, after we had finished singing a song with a good many ups and downs in it, a wee bit of a maid breathlessly exclaimed: " ]My! I just have to make my voice wiggle when I sing that. " The other day Mrs. Reeve was trying to teach the use of sit and set. She asked one of the children what he would say a farmer was doing if he had a lot of eggs and v as putting a hen on them. The boy correctly replied that he would be setting the hen. If he did that yesterday, what would you say then, Frank? " " I would say, " said Frank, " that the farmer seated the hen. " These are but a few of the many things we hear in the Training School. Those children outshine an}- humorist I ever heard. Jan. 15. — Oh! the joy of being a Senior B! Life is strenuous and exciting just at present. We Senior B ' s would make fine politicians. William Jennings Bryan couldn ' t do better himself. We just lobbied the faculty right and left todaj and won out without any bribing either. We ' re feeling mighty proud, for it ' s quite a feather in our caps to be the first class to have a real szvell party. We have it all decided. It ' s to be at the Woman ' s Club House, and, as Dr. Small says, " Won ' t it be illigant! " I ' ll venture the Senior A ' s will fairly collapse when they receive our nifty little invitations. (We would like to have tzi ' o envelopes — but can ' t afford it.) The faculty has just been fine about it all, and are so interested. There ' s some pleasure in having a party under such circumstances. Dear me ! I do hope we can scrape up boys enough ! Boys ! ! ! I do wish the Normal had a sufficient supply on hand. It is such an everlasting bore to have to sail out in the highways and byways and gather them in every time we want any fun. Not that the boys are absolutely necessary for fun — but how would we girls ever get home? Jan. 23, 2 p. m. — Too dead tired to write much. The party was a sizzling success. The Senior A ' s thought it rich — so did we. We Senior B ' s are sure feeling proud. I do hope someone will do as well for us next year. Feb. 12. — Lots doing at school today. We wound up the old term, and at last are Senior A ' s. Seems to me I can just feel a difference in the very atmosphere. Everyone is noticing us more — even the teachers are beginning to — well, to respect us — just a little. We ' ll have to put on all our dignity now. I tell you, a Senior A isn ' t to be sneezed at. There is one great drawback to Senior A life. That is that abomin- able platform reading. ' Sir. Ronan reads next week. He says he isn ' t a bit scared. He is always so composed. I ' m going to try and cultivate a little of it myself — it so becomes one — a school teacher especially. P. S. — The most unheard of thing happened today. Josephine Harnett actually failed to answer a question. I wonder what can be the matter? I do hope she is not coming down with the measles. Feb. 26. — The training school children are still in evidence. One of the girls teaching grammar in the eighth grade got the following definition of syntax from a boy: " Syntax is a tax on whiskey. " Now, if that isn ' t good, logical reasoning, I ' d like to know what is. Another eighth grader gave the following startling bit of information today : " The Arabian Knights is a collection of fairy stories taken from the Bible. " Why send missionaries to China? March lo.— One would tliink this a day nursery, instead of a school of pedagogy. An epidemic of measles has invaded our ranks, and the girls are rapidly succumbing. Etta Ayres led the procession, and Misses Day, Killian, Phillis and Parker followed suit— and goodness knows how many more will follow. I do hope Miss Dunn will remain sensible and steer clear of such foolishness. i Iarch 12. — ]Mr. Ronan, our composed man, read from the platform this morning. It was too ridiculous — everyone laughed. He had every known symptom of stage fright— just shook like an aspen leaf — and yet he vows that he wasn ' t scared — just lost control of his muscles. ] Ir. Ronan, though, never gets scared. He wasn ' t scared when he gave his little rote song, I suppose. Oh, no! He just blew and blew and blew the wrong end of the pitch pipe until he was purple, for the amusement of the class. No, he was not frightened — just lost control of his muscles. March i6.— ] Iiss Hagan has been out of school for two days, so Mr. Shepardson has been wielding the baton in her place. ' Sir. Shepardson ought to try his hand at leading Ellcry " s band. He could easily do the Chefforrdelli act. All he needs is to learn a few more contortions, and he ' d be all right. He made that old baton cut up such capers, until the poor thing actually forgot it was just an old chewed pine stick, and had half a notion to believe it was real mahogany. We had a jolly time with Ir. Shepardson, and did some good singing, too. April 8. — Can it be that the millenium is near at hand? We Seniors actually had a jolly class meeting toda} — the first in the history of the organization. The picnic ' s the thing that did it. Everybody ' s going — even the boys. I do hope the poor things won ' t get lost in the crowd of girls. We ' ll promise to take good care of them, so I guess they ' ll be all right. April 29. — Everything is upside down at school. Dr. Small is sick, and we don ' t know what will become of us. ' e haven ' t our assignments yet, and it ' s time to change. The children in the Training School have been on the tear for a whole week. Every day they are expecting new Seniors, and as a result are simply irrepressible. We can ' t stand it much longer. That eighth grade seems to be wanderin g far and wide in the wilderness of grammar — here is another one of their unusual and original definitions : " A preamble is a dense little bush. " May 2. — We had a gay and festive time today. Went to Long Beach to drown our care and sorrow. Ellice Gill was simply delirious over the prospect, and insisted, when boarding the car, that we all sit on the sady shide. There is one question puzzling the minds of all the Seniors. Why did ]Mr. Garner pay just four fares? We had our fortunes told, and we girls are all wonderfully cheered up. Not one of us need despair, so the palmist says — there is hope for us all. I was simply amazed to see what musical ability some members of our class possess. Misses Ott, Haskin, Gasey and Ayers are rare performers on the comb. They made a complete orchestra, and played many popular and fetching airs, to which we tripped the light fantastic for fully twenty minutes. Six o ' clock was an infants ' hour to come home, but we were " duty bound " and had to. June I. — Some foolish meddler had the impudence to ask me why we Seniors owned the earth. I thought everyone knew that the mere fact of being a Senior A entitled one to that privilege. I guess, when we have four boys, we have a perfect right to walk with a proud and haughty mien. Then the pianist of the school is a member of our class. Seven of us are in the Glee Club. It has not been the custom heretofore to let Seniors remain in the Club. Miss Hagan couldn ' t dispense with our services, and we were entreated to remain. We are the first class to do " masterpieces " in drawing — the " scrapbox " also originated with us. We have given the best readings from the platform that have ever been given (Mr. Ronan ' s, particularly, is worthy of special mention). We are the first class to give an outside social function. We have a typical " ladies ' man. " Such a treasure we are sure no other class possesses. We have the finest presi- dent any class of the Normal School ever possessed. We never sl[ee{ through Methods. Mr. Carner is especially wide-awake and interested. The faculty, considering the respect due us, deliberately and unhesitatingly gave us a half holiday for our picnic when we asked for it. That proves conclusively that we are perfectly justified in acting as though we owned the earth. June 3. — Only three weeks more now, and we ' ll be through. I feel aa though I couldn ' t wait, but the time is so filled with parties and such doings that it will go only too soon. As the time draws near for tiie final parting I can ' t help but feel a certain regret. However, it is a bad thing to allow yourself to get sentimental — anyway, I feel a stirring within of my poetic muse — stirred to action, no doubt, by the mingled emotions of pain, regret, etc. — so I ' ll leave off with my feelings, and trust my restless muse to express all in the following. So sayeth the muse : The time has come, I grieve to say. To speak of many things. Oh ! all too soon our parting ' s here ; The happy days had wings. Our teachers all have labored hard — For sometimes we were slow ; We have not done the things we should Nor known what we should know. And yet for all — thanks to their skill— We ' re learned in goodly lore. In phonics, music, stiff school law, And other things galore. The Normal School ' s a turning mill— Like columns made from logs We came in, merry maidens all — We go out pedagogues. Alack-a-day ! Our school life ' s past Next year, by book and rules. Psychology and Methods, too, We ' ll teach our little schools. And may the festive young idea, Long kept before our sight, Not get from us poor workmanship. But learn to shoot aright.

Once upon a time a Taylor named Morris, who was out hunting, was treed by a big Brown Bair. " I ' m in a Peck of trouble, " sighed the poor Taylor. " If only the creature wouldn ' t Sterrett me that way; it cer- tainly gives me the cold shivers. " But he continued to sigh and weep until his friend Saflford, a very brave man, who was driving by with his faithful Dobbin, gave Chase to the offending Bair, and helped the Taylor to Land(t) a ' Genn. The moral of my tale is this: Never disturb a Bair. It Augurs naught but ill. TO MISS WAGNER. Oh, the gladness of her gladness when she ' s glad : Oh, the sadness of her sadness when she ' s sad; But the gladness of her gladness And the sadness of her sadness Is as nothing to the Madness of her madness when she ' s mad. REVISED VERSION. To " Miss Peck " : Oh, the madness of her gladness when she ' s glad ; Oh, the madness of her sadness when she ' s sad ; But the madness of her gladness And the madness of her sadness Is as nothing to the Madness of her madness when she ' s mad. Who is the joke on now, Adaline? PERSONAL TRADE MARKS. Miss H. — Continuity. Miss W. — That worried expression. Miss M. — Maybe the inner-outward. Miss T. — " He! He! " ? (Is that a pronoun or an exclamation?) Miss P. — " Got a letter this morning. " (Smiles.) Miss P. — Orpheum Miss Lawson — Have you a good place for your ducks to swim, Harry? Harry — Aw ! ducks can ' t swim ! Holly, looking around the room and noticing some vacant tables, said: ■ " Where have the Pecks and Humphreys gone. Miss T. — Entertaining two young men at noon. Miss H. — I don ' t see what she can find to say to hvo at once. I can ' t keep one that long. The Kindergarten has a jumping-jack. Didn ' t you know it? Ask Mr. Kirk or Miss Humphrey. Miss Lawson thi nks it is well for anyone who has a good voice to sing " The Sandman " to the children during rest time. We wonder why Adaline sings to her children nowadays? Why does Miss Harrison make the kindergartners vain? Because they can always see themselves in her shining boots. To Miss Lazi ' son : Here ' s to one who is always kind, Here ' s to one who is true ; Here ' s to one who has our hearts. In other words — here ' s to you ! A CHICK ' S ADVENTURE. Being an extract from the Diary of a chick, found in a Brooder and translated by J. H. My name is Yellow Puff. I was born in an Incubator on the Tenth Hour of the Twenty-fifth Day of March. I was then put with my brothers and Sisters, into a Brooder, where I lived, increasing daily in strength and beauty. When I had reached the age of Five Days, I was startled at about Thirty Minutes past the Sixth Hour, to hear the door of my residence noisily open- ed. Amazed at this infringement of the rules, for it was past the break- fast hour, I stepped boldly forward to defend my rights. My protest was not regarded in the least, and, horror of horrors, I was picked up and carried away ! I struggled, but in vain. I was soon placed in a stuffy little cardboard Box and covered with a pink blanket, which looked dreadful against my yellow coat. Unable to see or hear, and almost strangled, I could only realize that I was being carried hurriedly along, where I did not know. A horrible feeling came to me that I should never see my happy home again. I re- solved, however, to make the best of what came to me and yield myself entirely to the hands of Fate. I tried to make myself comfortable, but I soon realized that I was not moving. Then my box was opened and I once more saw the light of day. But upon what strange scenes did I open my eyes! I was in a train and people were staring at me and laughing. They talked of me at first but soon they wandered off to strange subjects. They talked of History of Ed. Who Ed was I couldn ' t make out, but he seemed to have known lots of people. Once they asked what I was for. The answer was, " For the children to see. They are making chicks, you know. " Making chicks ! Perhaps I should find out how I was made ! The conversation soon became too deep for me and I closed my eyes in sleep. When next I woke it was to find myself in a large room, filled with people. A stately looking man came forward on a big platform, where many other people were sitting. He opened a big Book and read a few words. When he stopped, music came from all parts of the room. Then a girl rose in the room and walked up on the platform. Her face was a queer grayish white, and she seemed to be shak- ing very hard. I think she must have seen me and I frightened her. I cannot think why else she should shake so. She read from a book and then went back to where she had come from. Then came music again. Soon all the people who had sat on the big platform went away except one. This one came forward and stood in front of us. I had a good look at her and liked her very much. She was rather small and very active. Some of the motions she made seem- ed to frighten the people in the hall for they would suddenly stop their noise. After staying here for some time we went to another room. I was then left to my own devices in this room. Shut up in my box I was unable to see much, but through a small hole I could see that I was in a large room full of desks. In front of me sat a stately looking lady with glasses on. She frowned a great deal, but do not think she was quite as cross as she looked. While here I went to sleep. I was rudely awakened, however, to find myself in a small room and surrounded by small children. They were dear little things and seemed to like me. They touched me and looked at me and talked. I stayed with them for a short time and was then taken to another room when I underwent the same experience. I was passed about from place to place, always exclaimed over by the children. In one room I felt quite insulted. The children were making chicks, in truth, but such chicks ! They looked no more like me than a worm ! And then one child came up to me and put the one he was making beside me. He looked at us a moment and then said: " It does look like it, doesn ' t it? ' ' Just imagine that ! After some time a loud bell sounded somewhere and all the children marched out. I was carried up stairs again. I peeped loudly for I was tired and hungry. My noise seemed to attract people for they col- lected round me in crowds ana talked. And such talkers ! I never heard people talk so much and say so little at any other time. They quite tired me out. I was at last given food and water, but even while I fed people gathered round me. One girl seemed quite startled on seeing me. She jumped and screamed very loudly. She afterwards explained she thought me one of the chicks the children had made and that I had come to life. I don ' t like that girl. She hasn ' t much Perception. After feeding I was put in my bed again and left alone. I spent the afternoon in silent meditation, homesick and miserable. At last I was carried out of the great building. Shut up in my box I only knew that I took a long, tiresome journey. At last I was taken out of my box and then, oh, marvelous fate, I was at home. I ate a nice warm supper, and then cuddled down to sleep. Next morning I waked, refreshed and happy, none the worse for my dreadful experience, but, nevertheless, not at all an xious to repeat it. THE END. THE LITTLE SANDPIPER. BY MAUD PARK. Dear Flo : You ' d never guess where I am if I did not tell you. Just think, Flo ! Friday I was whirling in the mad vortex of Los Angeles society (your coming-out party). Today my sole companion is a little horn-toad that peeps from behind the door at me as I write. For this is that new town, Flo, and I ' m here at Uncle Fred ' s. (You know they have perverted the Colorado river and are going to make money out of it, " and the dessert shall bloom like a rose. " ) Aunt Nell is such a dear, devoted wife that she involuntarily placed herself a burnt oflfering on love ' s altar, and accompanied Uncle Fred hither while he superintends a lot of work. (By burnt offering I only mean sunburnt. She hasn ' t been scalded, or anything.) The thermometer daily reads 120° F., and Ever hotter, hotter, hotter, Glares the sun on land and water. (That ' s either from " Hiawatha " or out of my own head. It sounds like " Hiawatha " — and it is pretty high here — but there isn ' t much watha — only a canal that is dry half the time.) I look as though I had shaved under the skin for three days in concession, besides enduring great mental angwish. For you must know, dear Flo, that I am a Fugitive from Fate — the horrible fate intendant upon an abused younger sister. (You know, mama always takes a tuck in my skirts when I begin to show signs of branching out, just because Agusta doesn ' t get married. So when Edith Webb told mama about my wearing Agusta ' s dress to your party, I knew another tuck would be forthcoming, and I got to thinking it over- retrospecting and prospecting — and the prospect didn ' t please me a bit In a few years more my dresses would be up to my knees again, and I ' d either have to join the circus, Flo, or go back into the nursery, and I expected to be put back on the bottle any day. Well, when Aunt Nell ' s invitation came, I nabbed it in a hurry. Mama concented — -rather too soon for her, and I soon discovered that they were all secretly in favor of my coming here, thinking that this Colorado sun would fry all the romanse out of me, and I would come home on the next train, resembling a burnt crackling — ' a sadder and wiser girl. But don ' t misjudge your own little Irene, Flo. She ' s not wearing the willow at present, nor bobbed off skirts either, but ser enely trailing Agusta ' s old white organdie over the shimmering sands, and making hay while the sun shines. And I tell you, it shines. A Secret: There are skids of the nicest fellows here — and so attentive. Dick would be madly jealous if he knew. I enclose a snap-shot of the Palace Hotel, with several of them in it. Under the awning are : The Arizona Kid, Willie Wallapus and Happy Jack. (They have other names, of course, only I prefer the more picturesque epitaphs.) The handsome one on horseback is Buckeye Bill — he ' s from New York; and the horrid one by the wheelbarrow is vSaratoga Slim — only he ' s from Noo Yazvk. He looks like: Mr. Sateen, mercerised cotton; fourth aisle — way back. I know Buckeye Bill best, because he ' s a friend of George ' s, who is teaching here, you know. Oh ! and say ! A Secret : George is dead in love with the only really pretty girl here besides me. Wouldn ' t Mrs. Willis be if she knew? She is determined that George shall marry that hateful Edith Webb, for she ' ll be rich if her uncle ever dies, which I hope he never will. This poor dessert girl is George ' s brightest pupil, and has a hard time, for her parents are low people who eat with their knives and treat her mean. And I ' m going to help George all I can. I told him yesterday that if he ' d catch the little sandpiper I would dress her up. You should have seen the look he gave me ! It seems he prefers beauty unadorned. But she ' s getting tamer every day, and " My hopes run high As up and down the sand we flit, One little sandpiper and I " (RENE. George Willis to Richard Thayer, Esq. May 28. My Dear Dick: If I ' m a potential criminal, as you imply, just take down the Penal Code, extract an appropriate punishment, and send it to me by return mail. I anticipate all possible trouble from the girl ' s parents, and I need to know exactly how I stand. G. W. Dear Flo: The little sandpiper and I have sworn eternal and infini- tesimal friendship, and this is ho wit happened. I started to walk to George ' s school, and I fixed up in my very best, for I expected that I would see that poor, benighted little sandpiper out with the rest of his barbarians at play, and I wanted to give her an object lesson in vogue and aplomb. It ' s no wonder she ' s such a little dowdy, for she ' s never had any example set her. I was all in white (Agusta ' s), and slippers to match (which was a pity, for they were ruined), and my pink and white parasol. Well, I got tired (it ' s two miles), and I cut across the alkali fields where they had been earregating, and 1— bogged doivn. Concede my situation, Flo, if you can. Those French heels bored deeper in the mud with every struggle I gave, and the sun bhstered my neck through that chiffon yoke, recalling to my mind those sad words of the poet : " Oh, thou child of many cares, Beware of quicksand and of snares. " But I did not cry, Flo; I was gauic. I just hoisted my parasol, and lifted Gussie ' s skirt, and waited for the clouds to roll by. Well, Flo, ages passed, and no one came. At last a brown spot appeared on the horizon, and I waved my parasol at it. It was the sandpiper, Flo, and she was just as nice as could be. She didn ' t laugh or anything, but got a board and walked out on it and pulled me out of the mud. She had to pu ll off her shoes and stockings, for the board sank a little, and I never saw such pretty feet. Not a corn — not a bunyon, not even a bent nail. You would never suspect it. The shoes she wares must be at least two sizes larger than mine — but what a difference in the feet! (My soft corn is better.) But I won ' t dwell on harrowing details. Flo, I was a sight. We went to her house to make repairs, and I had to encounter the old she-dragon, who fortunately is only her stepmother, and looks like a cross between a hoosier and a hyena. I tried to get away without having to talk to her, but she held me ivitJi her glittering eye (that ' s from Coleridge ' s " Crazy Kate), and made me tell my age, birthplace, etc. I see the little Sandpiper every day now (only I don ' t call her that any more, for sandpipers are ugly and have long blue legs), and she has told me a lot that I can ' t tell you, because they are all secrets. Anyway, her mother hates George, and wants her to marry the Wild Man of Borneo (judging by his appearance), and Pansy never will. (That ' s her real name. Wouldn ' t you like to have red hair and purple eyes and be named Pansy?) But Pansy can ' t marry George, for she ' s only seven- teen, and Dick says it would be deducting a miner, and they don ' t know what to do. A Secret: I really think, if it can ' t be managed otherwise, that I ought to marry Buckeye Bill and make a home for Pansy. I would ask Aunt Nell, only I ' m afraid she ' d send me home. Write and advise me, dear. Fondly, IRENE. June 1st. Telegrams, June 7th. George Willis to Richard Thayer, Esq. Letter received. Law be hanged. I can ' t stand this any longer. They ' ve locked her in. Richard Thayer to George Willis. Don ' t think taking such risk. They ' ll move away if do. George Willis to Richard Thayer. We ' re moving. Glad you warned me. Will be married eight tonight. Have carriage read} ' Los Angeles. You Dearest Flo : I ' m so sorry you had to go to Catalina before I came back home, for it is so much easier to tell a thrilling scene than to describe it, and have yunity and keep your threads together, but I will try. Pansy had been kept in durrence vile and in bed all week, and I was awfull} ' worried. Finally I resolved, like the Shipwrecked Mariner, that it was " Better to sink beneath the shock Than fall to tatters on a rock. " For I did feel all frazzled out. So I went over to Pansy ' s on the eloping day, hoping that our anchent word of courage, " fair Sir George, " would inspire us with spleen enough to lay out the dragon if need be. And who should I meet but The Dragon herself, driving to Syracuse Camp, where her wicked consort was loafing. I felt sure it was an onerous sign, and if I had expressed my interior truthfully I would have said : " How now, you secret, black and midnight hag? " — or some other odorous com- parison. But I only said, " Good afternoon, Mrs. Reed, " and looked as innocent as a kitten, so she didn ' t suspect anything. I hurried on, and found that she had left a stupid pronoun named Herr to guard Pansy, and the moment I sized her up I knew the day was won. She (Herr) made frequent trips to the pantry, and during these I communicated my plans to Pansy. It took some time to get Pansy to concent, and get her out of bed and me into it, for she feared for my sa " ke, and her own also, thinking that I would not be able to pass for her, even with my head covered up. But I told her that " what we long for, that we are, for one transparent moment, " and to go quick, while it lasted, and God bless her. Pansy says my voice sounded real solemn from under all those quilts, and I guess it did, for I don ' t generallj use othes when I speak. Well, while Pansy was halting ' twixt fear and the window-sash, Herr came back, and Pansy had to hide under the bed, and there we were, worse off than ever ! (It was so soon that I was done for That I wondered what I began for.) Well, the afternoon wore on, and Pansy and I gradually wore out. Suddenly The Pronoun straightened up, rubbed her eyes, and said: " Has yer comp ' ny gone home, Pansy? " " Yes, " said naughty little i. But my voice shook a little and aroused her suspicshun. " Are ye warm enough, ansy? " And I replied with a stroke of policy, viz.: " Yes, Auntie dear. " (And goodness knows, I was.) That pleased her, for Pansy seldom called her Auntie anything, much less dear, and she showed her good will by bringing in a feendish mess for me to eat. I let her roll back the quilts and discover me unawares. She gave a squall, and reeled around, and acted generally like an old hen that has just hatched out a duck. But I seezed the knife and fork from the plate she held, shreeking: " Is that a dagger I see before me? Gr-r-r! Let me clutch thee! " and then charged at her. Her frite was something terriable, so I stood aside and thundered: " Avawnt, thou horriable minister of Hell! " And i tell you, she avaivntcd. I guess I didn ' t go to Cummock a year for nothing.) Well, the rest was comparatively easy (I mean for me). We got Pansy ' s troosew (we had sewed it together in happy secret moments) out of the empty water can behind the fence, and I cheered Pansy, and told her " Hope is hopefullest when born of fears. And love is loveliest when soaked in tears, " but I ' m afraid she didn ' t believe me. Then we parted, and I got back to Aunt Nell ' s in time to take the train for Los Angeles, but Pansy had an azvfttl time.. George ' s train was late (he ' d been away getting carriages stationed along), and Pansy had to go herself and get the lisense, and now Dick says the old Dragon can ' t put George in jail, because Pansy deducted herself. And that made her late (7:30 p. m.), and she was afraid to go past her mother ' s house again to where the bridge was, so she ran ' way down to the big road, dodging coyotes, horn-toads and creeping things of all kinds, and then zvaded the canal, and the water looked black, and George drove madly up just as she came out on the other side. And Buckeye Bill says they got away just in time, for the Dragon got back from Syracuse with her accomplace, and The old Syrian came down like a wolf on the fold. And his consort (not cohort) was screaming: Hold! Hold!! Hold!!! (This is a paradox that Buckeye Bill and I made, only now he ' s made money enough to come here and practice law and be Mr. Wm. Caruthers. Agusta thinks he ' s fine-looking, and I intend to land him for her if he nibbles at all. I don ' t know of anyone that I would wade a river to m rry, and, anyway, I can ' t till Gussie does. Dick says he ' ll wait for me ' Till the stars are old, And the sun gets cold. " He ' s a very patient j-oung man. I wonder if he means the Colorado sun? June 9th. IRENE. 172157 SOCIETY CALENDAR 1903-4. Sept. 8, 1903. — Informal tea in Y. W. C. A. room in honor of the en- tering girls. An " Art Exhibit " was the feature of the occasion. Sept. 15. — Formal reception given to new students by Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. ' s. Mr. Von Neumayer gave the address of welcome. Mr. Carner sang. Mr. Krang read an original poem. Oct. 15. — Spread on the campus given the Bible Study classes. Dec. 16. — Spread on the campus given by the Speer Bible class. Jan. 22, 1904. — One of the most brilliant social functions ever known in the history of the school was the reception and dance given by the sum- mer class of " 04 to the winter class of the same year. The pretty hall and reception rooms of the Woman ' s Club House on Figueroa street presented a gay scene on the evening of the 22nd as they rapidly filled with a throng in which we recognized the members of the faculty, also distinguished Senior A ' s and B ' s with their escorts. The feature of the evening was dancing which continued to a late hour, and was made doubly enjoyable by the efforts of Mr. Kammermeyer, who di- rected the music. Games were provided for those who did not dance and punch was served between dances and at all times in a bower of ferns and smilax. The program opened with a grand march nobly led by Miss Hagan and Mrs. Patton. Jan. 29. — Farewell banquet given to Senior A ' s. Mrs. Barnum was toastmistress. Mrs. Pierce resnonded to the toast " Normal Girls. " Mrs. English, " Our Graduates ; " Edith Graves, " Capitola ; " Lela Sugg, " Our Old Cabinet. " Feb. 10. — Informal reception for Miss Brown, Pacific Coast secretary Y. W. C. A. A general jollification. Games. April 8. — The committees of arrangements which were responsible for the delightful dancing party given by Mid. A ' s deserve a vote of thanks for the unique souvenirs and the charming decorations of the dining hall, as well as the general good time enjoyed by all. April 15.— Birthday party. Everyone brought a penny for each year of his age. Children ' s games were played in the gymnasium. Flinch and Panic in the library. April 22.— Capitola luncheon. The lunch room was beautifully decor- ated and a delightful lunch was served to students and visiting friends. .• pril 2T, promised to be wind.v. but that did not frighten the Senior B ' s, who had arranged a picnic. At half-past 9 thirteen girls and one bov met at the depot on Sixth and Main streets, and when a car carrying Mr. Shepardson came along his pleasant smile and beckoning hand at- tracted them, and they piled into it. The merry crowd made their way to the Garvanza station, and then walked to the picnic grounds, half a mile away. They then sat down under a spreading oak tree and did justice to an ample luncheon. After some informal music, the party separated to hunt flowers and ferns. At 5 o ' clock, after retracing their half mile walk, the happy crowd, laden with ferns and flowers, climbed aboard the homeward-bound car and soon arrived in Los Angeles. April 23. — A jolly party enjoyed the Mid. B picnic in Rubio Canyon. Some of the party proved untiring in the dance, while others showed inexhaustible energv in climbing as far as the falls. Those who suc- ceeded in reaching the observatory were rewarded with a look through the telescope and a lecture on astronomy. The party returned to Los An- geles in the gayest of spirits. May 2. — Picnics always present an alluring side to classes in need of entertainment. The Senior A ' s therefore gave (to themselves this time) an informal but delightful affair at Long Beach. The Salt Lake Railroad kindly furnished a car (for a consideration), and the happy Senior A ' s started forth at 1:15 p. m. Arriving at Long Beach in due time, they spent the afternoon in bowling, enjoying the ocean, feasting, and, last but not least (shall I say it?) fortune telling. An elaborate, if informal, luncheon was spread in the pavilion. When it was finished, aancing fol- lowed to the strains of the comb orchestra ably led by ]Miss Lorena Haskin. The picnic was voted a success by all, and the afternoo n was counte .; as well spent. Dorothy D.w. THE NORMAL GLEE CLUB. " The Normal Glee Club is now solely composed of young ladies of the school. There was a time when the young men took part in the club ' s work. But, alas ! that time is no more. The number of young men in the school became less and less until now we can hardly say that this school possesses anj ' young men. I heard that the girls who belonged to the club in those days shed many a bitter tear and heaved a heartrending sigh when the young men bid them a last farewell. " " How about the boys? " you asked. " Oh, I do not know how they felt, but I firmly be- lieve that they retired to a distant corner and wept copious tears at the thought of leaving the Glee Club and its charmin g members and its still more charming directress. " The Glee Club as a girl ' s club was organized February, 1903, with its twenty-five members. But because of the popularity of the club the num- ber of members was increased to thirty and thus it now stands. The aim of the club is to better the musical life of the school and to sing on all occasions when such services are requested. The club has the rare privilege of having for its directress Miss Jennie Hagan. How patiently and unceasingly she labors with them ! It is the custom for the club to sing at the Senior A graduating exercises, and last September, which was the club ' s first appearance as the Girls ' Glee Club, they sang " Peggy, " by W. H. Neidlinger, and " The Lonely Rose, " by Edward Hermes. To silence the audience, they were forced to repeat " Peggy. " Then again they were requested to sing w ' p ' J W before the general assembly of the teachers during the Institute. I think this event will dwell in their minds forever. It was a dismal, dreary day on the twenty-third of December. One misfortune piled upon another. Several of the soprano members were kept away by illness, and half of those present had such colds that they could hardly talk, and, to crown it all, the accompanist was absent. The club, however, were determined to do their best, and they did it. In spite of their mis- fortunes, they cheerfully sang " Peggy, " and for an encore rendered " Nellie Was a Lady. " When they had finished, perfect silence reigned in the large auditorium, and it was several seconds before the audience applauded. Prof. Clarke of the Chicago University, who was present, gave them a very high compliment during his speech, which made the day bright, indeed, for the club. March twenty-third of. this year the Glee Club gave an afternoon of ballads. They themselves rendered the first number on the program, two Scotch ballads by Burns, " My Heart ' s in the Highlands " and " Flow Gently, Sweet Afton. " Then followed ballads by several of the most noted singers. This is only some of their work, and I hope that some time you may be able to hear them sing. ELIZABETH M. H. WEBER, W.

" " The first organized movement of the Alumni of the Los Angeles State Normal was at Christmas, 1888, when a constitution providing for an annual meeting was adopted. This constitution was discarded in 1895 to make waj ' for the one now in effect. The regular annual meeting of the Alumni has never failed to take place at the close of each school year, and records have been kept of every year save 1891. The business meeting has always been held in the after- noon and the social meeting, consisting of programs and dancing, followed by refreshments, or else a banquet followed by dancing, has been held the evening of the same day. Interest in the business meetings has varied greatly from time to time. School teachers are in the main so busy and so filled with their own duties and cares, that they otten remember but dimly the days when their sympathies were on the other side ; hence, though there is among the graduates a deep loyalty to the school, it is liable to be passive. New and then, however, the Alumni has been fortunate enough to have a president strong enough to wake this dormant loyalt into activity ; as when, sev- eral years ago, under Dr. Jordan ' s leadership, meetings were enthusias- tically attended for three successive days. The gatherings in the evening, on the other hand, have been well at- tended. The classmates, who at commencement sang " For Auld Lang Syne " with clasped hands and w et eyes, have in spite of themselves drift- ed apart, and, in many cases, meet again only on this one daj- in the j ear. It is a time in which we drop back for an hour or so into complete sym- pathy with the boy or girl of -earsago who daily climbed the Normal Hill and whose shoulders were beginning to bend under the weight of his knowledge. We may be sadder and wiser through our many experi- ences since leaving school, but we surely will never know so much again. These re-unions of the present and the past are not entirely merry. We cannot but realize that we have not fulfilled all of our bright dreams. Not one of us is living in that castle in Spain which this one evening so vividly recalls. But it surely does us no harm to catch the glow of our old enthusiasm, and though behind the laugh there is often a sigh, yet we after all are left the joys of knowing that friendship can stand the test ■of time. We would like to call the attention of the Normal students to the ad- vertisement of Whitaker-Brown Shoe Store, and remember Mr. Whit- aker is a Normal graduate, Class S. ' oo. Be loyal, students. It is hard to find jokes on members of the Alumni, but we have heard a pretty good one on Mr. Arthur Brown, s. ' 03. He is said to have been caught twice in the act of kissing one of the teachers in the school where he himself teaches ! ! One of our previous editors has been more than kind in helping the present Exponent staff with ideas. If any future class wishes valuable information and assistance, we refer you to Miss Nora Sterry. Mr. Morgan was quite ill for two weeks this spring, but is restored once more to his usual good health and spirits. " Se sure to bring a bottle to graduate .crxrt-A_3 bAX £ (A -£ c iytu , ' V ai BOYS " BASKET BALi.. The truth of the old adage that " practice makes perfect, " has been exempHfied by the work of the Normal Basket Ball team this year. Be- ginning the season with several practically inexperienced players, and handicapped by a scarcity of material from which to draw, the team has made a record of which it may justly be proud. The almost unbroken line of victories of the team speaks for itself. It began by defeating the San Diego Y. .. C. A. by an overwhelming score. After this it won a number of games from the leading teams in the league, and now stands next to the Turner Tigers, who for several years have been the champions of Southern California. Ball, the captain of the team, is a natural center. Tall, tireless and accurate in goal throwing, he is always in evidence during the game. Noble and Kuehny are as fast a pair of forwards as there are anywhere in the league. What they lack in weight is counterbalanced by speed and ac- curacy. Noble is noted for his goal throwing, and Kuehny for his ability to get the ball and give it to the right man at the right time. Ronan and Carner know their position and play a sure, fast game. They are always found with their man, blocking his throws. Sharpe, the substi- tute, is a very promising player. Although each man is an able indi- vidual player, yet he will sacrifice individual opportunities for the good of the team. Tom Keating, one of the Turner boys, who coached the Normals in the early part of the season, taught them many essential points regarding basket ball. The team receives a great blow by the loss of three of its most ex- perienced players — Ball, Ronan and Carner. While the remaining boys hope to have a team in the future, still they feel that the vacancies left by the three graduates will be verv difficult to fill. GIRLS ' BASKET BALL. A girls " basket ball team has been formed this year and has made- a good record, having defeated some of the older teams of the league. They have caught some of the enthusiasm of the boys aad are very regu- lar and earnest in their practice. Misses Juanita Carrigan and [Minnie Blair are strong guards. Watch- ful and active, they scarcely ever allow their opponent to have even a try for the basket. The center, Miss Ethel MacDermott, plays a cool yet fast game and is a great help to the forwards. Misses Villa Augur and Luella Smith, the forwards, are noted for their skill in catching the ball,, and with more practice will become accurate goal throwers.. The basket ball girls are greatly indebted to Messrs. Kuehny and Ball, who have given so much of their time to the training of the team,, and who have taken so much interest in the work. TENNIS. This year new interest has been awakened in that fascinating game,, tennis. Under the able management of ] Ir. John Doyle an association was organized with the following officers : President, J. Doyle ; vice-presi- dent, C. Groton; secretary, M. Kuehny; treasurer, J. Noble. The courts were at once put in good order under the combined efforts of the mem- bers. Association balls were purchased, and the pupils began once more to enjoy the pleasures of a game of tennis. In February a second election of officers took place. The results were : President, Miss Standefer ; vice-president. Miss M. Blair ; secre- tary, Mr. Sallee; treasurer, Miss L. Grubb. A tennis tournament was arranged but as the time has been so fully occupied with other things, the finals have not yet been played. We hope next year, however, with the aid of an earlier start to make the tournament a great success. GYMNASTIC CONTEST. The most interesting event of our school year in the athletic line took place in the Gymnasium Friday afternoon, May 13. This was the Inter- Class Gymnastic Contest. The Gym. was crowded to the utmost with the eager friends of the contestants. Classes were out in full force, easily distinguished by their flying colors and lusty voices. Even the Senior A ' s did not feel hurt that they were not invited as guests of honor (since they have no part in gymnastic affairs), but were all there and able to yell : Rah! Rah! Rah Aren ' t we sweet, Senior A ' s Without a seat. The contestants were girls from each of the M. D., M. C, M. B. and M. A. classes. The features of the work were marching drills, floor work, boom work, rope climbine, jumoing, high jumping and vaulting. The work done by all the girls was good and reflects great credit upon themselves and also upon Miss Jacobs, who has given them such careful training. Especially worthy of mention was the rope climbing of Misses Collins and Trefethen, the division leading of jNIisses Standifer and Blair and the floor work of Misses Ewing and Ina Collins. The decision of the judges — ] Iessrs. Shepardson and Davis and Misses Hagan, Lawson and Mrs. Preston — was in favor of the girls in yellow an,d white, the M. B. ' s, who showed their appreciation by a good hearty yell for the class of ' 06. It is to be hoped that the future will be full of just such interesting events, for there is nothing that fills the students with more enthusiasm or school spirit than such occasions. The motto of the class of ' 04 evidently is, " Spare the rod and spoil the child. " At the present time there is much diversity of opinion regarding the most efficient mode of punishment in public education. The future will not be troubled with this much debated question. The distinguished class of ' 04 has decreed that the hand that rules the world is not the one that rocks the cradle but the one that wields the rod and ax. Overheard on a Traction car : First Reformer: — " Who are those young people wearing that ax with a thick handle? " Second Reformer : — " Why, don ' t you know ? They are Carrie Na- tion ' s latest recruits. " Fat Gentleman (in disappointed tone) : — " You don ' t tell me. I thought they were the advance agents for Battle Ax plub tobacco. " District Trustee : — " Before employing a teacher in this district we are in the habit of inquiring into the modes of punishment favored by her, " Applicant (class of ' 04) : — " I first try corporal punishment and if that fails I use capital punishment. " As the Census Marshal ' s report from this district showed a scarcity of children, it is needless to sav the teacher was not employed. E. S. A TRIBUTE. BY CHAS. F. LUMMIS. In twenty years ' study of science and of man, nothing has so much delighted and encouraged me, as a token of the growth of a truly scholarly spirit in America, as the action of Senior A Class, ' 04. of the Los Angeles State Normal School in presenting its Alma Mater with a life membership in the Archaeological Institute of America. It is a fine filial sentiment which has made it customary that the grad- uating class shall leave some tangible bequest of love and gratitude to the institution which has prepared it for the work of life. No one can reasonably find fault with the class whose gift follows tradition or con- vention. But to the class of 1904, which has thought for itself, it seems to me a double credit is due. It has given to the mother school not only what is of more lasting value in the gift itself; it has given far more- in the inspiring example of independent thought, of progressive scholar- ship. Instead of following, it has discovered. A clock, picture, or other furniture, is perishable materially — and of short vogue in our changing fashions. But the gift of a life membership in the dean of American Scientific bodies, the Archaeological Institute of America — that will never be " old-fashioned " nor out of date. As a result of the bequest of the Senior A class of 1904, the Los Angeles State Normal School will receive in perpetuity the official organ of the Institute — " The American Journal of Archaeology. " It will be always in touch with the world-famous work of the classical schools in Athens, Rome and Palestine, and with scientific work of this kind in America. Further than this, the school will always be named in the roster which lists the American institutions of enough seriousness to care for this higher scholarship. Too few American institutions are represented; outside of Harvard, Yale and other foremost universities and schools, the list is lamentably short. The Los Angeles State Normal School will be known henceforward to the world ' s scholars as one of the American schools already progressive enough to take a hand in one of the most important and exclusive activities of world scholarship. It seems to me the Normal School has every right to be proud of this action by one of its classes ; and, as an American and a Californian, I personally am proud of this evidence of mature judgment and far-seeing thoughtfulness on the part of a class of young women and young men just about to go forth to teach the younger generation. The true teacher must be something more than a glib phonograph of memorized facts ; something more than a mere practitioner of " methods. " To teach is not to " cram, " but to lead. And to be a true leader, one must have ideals,, clear sight, and long sight. " From his foot, Hercules. " If the Senior A class can be judged by this one act, I shall expect of it even broader and finer achievement than is recorded for any of its predecessors, honorable as their record has been.. [Note. — Mr. Lummis says: " I am commenting, also, in the May ' Out. West, ' on the splendid action of the Senior A class. " — Ed.] EVOLUTION. When first (he Junior cHmbed the hill, V.ith easy step and fancies light, To learn was much against his will — Already he was erudite. A Middler then, work well begun, He trod the pedagogic way, And found so much beneath the sun He needs must turn the night to day. A Senior, seasoned Normalite By critic tempests tossed and blown, A vigorous cosmopolite He soon will reap what he has sown. H. K. It is the object of this article to give a general idea of some of the things we have tried to emphasize during the past year. The aim of the Young Women ' s Christian Association is the mental, physical and spiritual development of young women. The means by which this is accomplished must of course vary in the different places in which the associations are located. In our own, as in all college associa- tions, mental and physical development are provided for in the college curriculum ; hence the spiritual side is paramount . Bible study is the best aid to spiritual development. The Normal Association has three classes, one in Sharman ' s " Studies in the Life of Christ, " lead by Miss Curry; one in " Studies in the Gospel of Luke, " lead by Miss Stearns ; and a class following the work provided for in the " Daily Bible, " lead by ]Mr. Studd. In addition to this, there are two devotional meetings weekly, JMonday at 3 o ' clock and Wednesday at 12 130. There is one Mission Study class taking up " Effective Workers in Needy Fields. " There has been a most decided growth in the membership, the roll now showing 135 names. During the past year the Association has tried to emphasize the so- cial side of the work. In addition to the formal reception to the enter- ing girls and the farewell banquet to the Senior A ' s there have been sev- eral very delightful informal functions. One was an informal tea given to the entering girls, another a spread given by the Bible Study girls, and another an informal reception for Miss Brown, our State Secretary. Per- haps the jolliest of all the affairs given was the birthday party of April 15. The best part of the fun was the playing of children ' s games in the gymnasium. " Flinch ' ' and " Panic ' in the library afforded amusement for those who did not care for " Double Cousins " or " Many lotions. " The Capitola luncheon was what might be called a semi-social event. All who were there remember the beautiful decorations and the air of festivity that pervaded the lunch room. Enough money was realized to insure us two delegates to Capitola. Miss Troxell, president of the Association, is one. The other has not yet been decided upon. The Music Committee has inaugurated a decided innovation. The Association has long felt the need of better music at the devotional meet- ings, and as a means of supplying that want have organized a Y. W. C. A. Choral Club. Miss Hagan directs the club, which meets every Friday at 2 145. This is the first work of the kind to be undertaken in Southern California, and our sister College Associations are watching our progress with interest. As an Association we feel deeply our responsibilities. We realize that a good teacher should be as well developed spiritually as mentally and physically, and we are endeavoring to give an opportunity for such development. We know that the work is God ' s and that as our motto reads, " Xot by might nor by power, but by spirit, said the Lord of hosts, " will these things be done. Emma A. McCall. W. ' 05. lorvc.a- For several years past there has existed in our school a Young Men " s Christian Association. This was made and kept by the efforts and hard work of a few boys, and they are to be thanked and honored for years to come because the seed sown has not been entirely wasted. This year some energy was expended in carriyng on the work, but very little was done or could be done. Why? There are only about a dozen young men left in the Institution to carry on the work, and so it was not practicable, nor will it be practicable to carry the work of an Association with such a small body of fellows.

Sarah P. Monks. THE NAME OF MARY NEVIUS. Mary had a little name So simple you would think That any man possessed of wit Could say it right, a little bit. But one there was who could not sec (Though hard he tried each day) That Mary ' s name was Nee-veus Instead of Nevvins — his way. When oft repeated by the class That this was wrong, he said : " I now will try a second turn This awful name to learn. " With mind convinced that he was right To class he came next day And promptly called Miss Nevvins up, Her little part to say. A titter round the class did go. He then himself did ask, ■ " Nevvins? Was it wrong again? Or was the class insane? " They now a compromise have made. These two. ' Twas one so loose That when he wishes her to stand He says, " Miss Nee-veus. " Mary Errett, S. 04.

Oh gray of the grav sea at dawn, Cold out of the sorrowful night, The shadows have drifted and gone. The gray waves are sighmg for light And sadly insistent and sweet They moan among rocks at my feet. No hope from the gray sullen sky , No hope from the gray rocks and sand, Low flying the wild sea birds cry. And the fog drifts over the land, And over the reet and the swell, Inconstant and slow tells the bell. Sarah P. Monks. WHAT ' S IN A NAME? There is nothing small about the Dr. but his name. There is nothing cutting about Sharpe but his name. There is nothing royal about Duke but his name. There is nothing superior about Noble but his name. There is nothing keen about Kuehny but his name. There is nothing babyish about Ball but his name. There is nothing aristocratic about Waldorf but his name. There is nothing effeminate about Sallee but his name. There is nothing deep about Root but his name. There is nothing sleepy about Professor Dozier but his name. There is nothing official about Meagher but his name. Our " Miller ' s Son We wonder where Mr. Von Neumayer " s thoughts are all the morning, when they should be on the teaching of reading. We are afraid they are prone to wander to the things that gratify the inner man. For one morning, at the close of the first period, not long ago, when we were coming up from Sloyd, we met this worthy gentleman making his way with unusual alacrity towards the lunch room. Of course, he found the door closed. Turning with much concern to one of the girls, he said anxiously: " Isn ' t lunch to be served today? " When she told him, apolo- getically, that it would be an hour and a half before lunch time, he turned away with— well, a disappointed look on his usually unruffled coun- tenance. CLASS REGISTER.

People say that Senior A ' s are always conceited. There may be some truth in it. based on the following : Miss GTl, Senior A, carne to school one morning shortly after Easter and after having gone to her locker to put away her wraps she rushed out with despair written all over her countenance. " Oh, girls ! what shall I do? !My nev - hat is so big it will not possibly squeeze into my locker? ' ' A couple of girls went to her aid and by tj-ing a string to the buckle on the hat and hanging it from the hook with the hat wrong way out, it was at last made to stay in.

Summing Up, The following are salient points of information concerning the Wood- bury Business College : 1. In its " Modern Illustrative System, " the Woodbury offers the most thorough, practical and up-to-date course in Bookkeeping and Business Training that has yet been devised. 2. Owing to its simplicity, directness and adaptability, and its admir- able pedagogical features, the Modern Illustrative System has from 25 to 75 per cent greater educational power in a given time than any " Budget " or " Business Practice " system taught. 3. The great demand in offices for young men and women who have a practical knowledge of both bookkeeping and shorthand has caused the Woodbury to offer a COMBINATION COURSE in Bookkeeping, Short- hand and Typewriting, which enables the student in the shortest possible time to go out a " finished product, " having from 25 to 75 per cent greater earning capacity than a single course knowledge could produce. 4. The Gregg system of Shorthand taught is a modern system, but thoroughly tested; has proved its capabilities in hundreds of schools, and is today taught in more public and private institutions than any other three systems combined. 5. Owing to the ease and simplicity of the Gregg system, the average student can acquire as great proficiency in four months as with the Pittman or Graham system in six months ; or in six months he can attain a much higher degree of proficiency than with the old systems in the same length of time. 6. The requirements of business offices are growing more exacting each year, thus demanding greater proficiency on the part of the applicant for a position. It is therefore to the student ' s interest to qualify himself thoroughly before applying for a position. 7. The Woodbury, therefore, does not recommend a short course of study, but advises that the student devote as much time for preparation as his circumstances will permit, thus attaining the highest possible degree of efficiency before encountering the actualities of business life. 8. There are thousands of business offices in which a knowledge of bookkeeping on the part of the stenographer is either a requirement or a very desiraljle accomplishment. Ever alert to the actual business needs, the Woodbury College offers a thoroughly practical and complete Stenographer ' s Course in Bookkeeping in connection with the Gregg Shorthand Course without extra tuition expense. 9. There are thousands of persons who would like to learn short- hand, but who find it either impossible, or impracticable or undesirable to attend school in person. To all such we offer a Home Study Correspond- ence Course in Gregg Shorthand. 10. To enable all interested to form an intelligent idea of the ease and simplicity of Gregg Shorthand, we will mail the first lesson pamphlet free of charge. We are ready and pleased at any time to give information personally, by telephone, or by correspondence, on any and all of these points. Write for College- Journal.
