Hngravers ' " (£ Ski S y yryf), f f, ' -J To live in daily contact with a grandly simple nature, to have the highest in us stimulated and the ignoble reproved by unfailing example, to wit- ness the strength that springs from an abiding faith in humanity, and to feel the steadv power of a great-hearted sincerity — this is a truh- educational blessing, and for this we thank our honored presi- dent. But while we gratefully acknowledge our daily debt to him, we realize that his reward is even greater than our gain ; the influence of noble living is, like mercy, " twice blessed, " and inasmuch as it is more blessed to give than to receive, his year ' s work among us has been both labor and recom- pense, gift and guerdon.

At last has come the time for us, the Summer class of " Xaughty Five, " to say " Goodbye " to our Alma Mater, and we leave as a farewell ofTering in accordance with an established custom, the Xormai Exponent. Our Exponent differs somewhat from its predecessors in that we have attempted to make it of interest to the whole school. It is our belief that a school annual, to be the most successful, should contain articles of interest to the school in general and to the Senior A class in particular. Consequently we have given one page of the Ex- ponent to each class and have striven to show forth every phase of our school life, thereby making it a truly representative paper. If we have especially emphasized the Senior A life and have too promi- nently (in your estimation) set forth the merits of being Seniors (such Seniors as we are!) we trust you will pardon ns, as it is our last chance ti) bring ourselves and our acts before you as a class. When you publish your Exponent, you will understand and sympathize with us. In making a success of this paper as a rejiresenta- tive paper, we feel that we owe much to the vari- ous classes and organizations who have so heartily co-operated with us and we desire to thank them for their interest. In times past it has been noted that among the under classes very little interest has been taken in the publication of the E.xponent. We point to the interest shown by the students this year as a very hopeful sign, as something to be sought for. that ought to be shown in the publi- cation of every Exponent and we urge our suc- cessors to strive to increase that spirit of interest and co-operation among the students. Many of us upon returning to school last fall ex- perienced a feeling of strangeness when we saw so many new faces among our Faculty. Hut as we assumed our school duties and came in contact almost daily with these new members iif our Fac- ulty tliis tecliiit; l lransjciK-ss wofl- off and vc have come to know and admire them for their many worthy qualities. They have hroui ht to us high ideals and standards, fresh and inspiring thoughts, and have sought in every way to further the interests of our school. With the acKent of new Faculty members several new features have been introduced into our schoc l which we feel have been highly beneficial and which serve to rouse us from the steady routine of our daily work. .Among these are the Friday after- niKin recitals, under .Miss t ' lill ' s management. W ' e shall say nothing more concerning these here as they are commented on elsewhere in these columns. ncither feature that is especially noteworthv is the series of Monday morning cha])el talks by Ur. -Millspaugh or other members of the Faculty, or oc- casionally a student, and we have frecpienth ' had the ])leasure of hearing prominent ]ieo])le from out- side. These talks have been not only of a ])rofes- iiiual n. ' ilnre. but nf lra els and e.xjjeriences out- side of t)ur strictly .XHrnial life: and thev have been both inspiring and broadening. low to escape our attention is the re-arrangement of the course of study. This change was made not with the view of lightening our work that we might have less work to do, but that we might do better work, that we might have time to do earnest, inde- pendent thinking, that our etiforts might be more concentrated. To attain such a result is worth striving for and this action is a great step taken in the richt direction. We are more than grateful to all those who have encouraged lis by their interest and co-operation in the publication of our Exponent and we especi- allv appreciate " Miss Wood ' s assistance. The whole Stat? joins in thanking her for her help and valuable I EX. IK TKOXEL. Another commcnda1)le feature that we cannot al- CLASS HISTORY Just four short years ago, on a bright day in Sei)- tember, nineteen hundred one, seventy-eight strong, we entered the Los Angeles State Normal School. And did anyone ever see such a class of Juniors. ' e were all ushered into room B, the door was opened into Dr. Pierce ' s private office, and we poor, timid little Tuniors were retiuested one bv one to hie into that office. How we trembled and many of us blushed as we went forth to present our cer- tificates and other necessary papers ! Then we went into the main office to Mr. Dozier. the vice- president, who registered us as members of the Los Angeles State Normal School. Oh, how our hearts swelled with pride as he wrote our names ! Our next task was to find our way about in that great building. ( )n our programs were rooms " I " and " C " and " R. " and what wasn ' t there! . nd we were due there for recitations and were expected to find them. We had heard of never being asked to do impossibilities, but there seemed to be excep- tions. . fter we had wasted much time and had been laughed at by those who knew the ins and outs of the building, we finally found them one at a time. The next great trouble was to find them again. But we soon learned, as all wise people do. Once we were installed in our new home, all went smoothly and everyone was very kind to us. As the first term drew near its close, it began to be whispered about what an unusual class we Tuniors were, and, when the marks went in. it could not be denied. With the new term came the transference of Phys- ical Training from the tennis court to the new gynmasium and dances therein the last Friday of each month in which we always participated. The same term wc made our debut into Nurmal ScliDol society. W ' liat an event it was! W ' c felt the inii ortance and lionor attached to such an occasion and did our best to act accor(Hntcl . We decided it should be a dancing party and be held in that new gymnasium. Well, it was a grand success. Why, the boys voted it one of the best Junior l nrties ever given at the Normal School. . fter the summer vacation our first great sor- row came wlien the Faculty decided still to con- sider some from among our number as Junior A ' s. Time passed quickly now and nothing of unusual interest took place except the addition of " a bov " to our number when we were Middle C " s. Another summer vacation passed and we were Middle B ' s. B}- this time our numljer had greatly decreaseil. Some had left us to seek fortune along other lines. Cupid had captured his number, and. alas ! the various studies had taken others. But there were still twenty-seven of us and we worked hard to kee]) together. All along our course new students had joined us but at this time we were reinforced by seventy-four graduates from the vari- ous high school. What a large class we were now ! Why, it took almost six weeks to get our programs settled. It was one of the largest classes of high school graduates that ever entered the Los An- geles State Xormal School. e organized as one class and immeclialely set to work to uphold the name which we had made. The days slipped into weeks, the weeks into months and we were Senior B ' s, a class of seventy six. Fifteen new members, known as the " one year girls, " were added to our number. It was at this time that we descended into those long-feared lower regions where the rising generation holds forth in abundance. How we did work! And the result? by, we did such unusually strong teaching that the old mark " C " could not express it. so a new one. " C+, ' " was invented especially for the Senior B ' s. The Faculty, not wishing to ajspear partial, now use it occasionally in other classes. When our marks went in, they proved that we had made a star record. The Faculty were amazed at all the " C+ ' s " that we Senior B ' s had receixed, and we were justly proud of them. It was during this term, too, that we learned to cook, lest we might need to know how some day. you know. What good times we did have and what proficient cooks we became ! And why did we enjoy it so much, you may ask. Because Mrs. Haz- zard was there. Xo one ever took more interest in us or helped us more in our social undertakings than this most gracious lady who has endeared herself to the Senior As. And. then, there were the Nature Study excur- sions to the Arroyo Seco at (larvanza. How we did enjoy watching the little birds and how (|uiet (?) wc did keep! Why, Mr. Miller instilled intu our minds such a love for the thing;s of nature that three of our number, when Senior A ' s, actually went on a tramp for wild flowers among the hills while the rain fell thick and fast. And now we are Senior A ' s, with but fifteen of our old comrades and fifty-three other worthy stu- dents. I have stated that we were an unusual class. We modestly confess that we not only were, but are, a most extraordinary class in every respect. When our Senior A term opened, we were informed by each teacher in succession that we were un- usually bright and that they had great hopes for our future. Miss Seaman told us what a valuable expression " fine and dandy " is and what class is more proficient in its use than we? Doesn ' t Dr. Croswell say at every seminar meeting that we are the brightest set of teachers he has ever seen and that the work done in the Training School by the present Senior .-V ' s surpasses anything heretofore i " Why, one of our number actually got her A-6 chil- dren so interested in music that even the boys sang and complained that they never did have long enough to sing. Another one, from the rostrum on Friday afternoon, declared that .she " heard the light and saw the sound. " No one but a Senior A could do such a remarkable thing. When we pre- sented " Comus " for the benefit of the Y. W. C. A., didn ' t the " Times " state that one of our actors had " something of the professional " in his presentation of the character of Comus? As class teacher we Senior A ' s have one of the kindest and most considerate of teachers. Dr. Cros- well. who has done so much to lighten our bur- dens and make our work more interesting and pleasant. It is with pride that we look back over our past four years, for, although we have not always made the most of our opportunities, nevertheless we feel that we have accomplished a great deal and have more to be proud of than we have to be ashamed of. This closes the history of our class. In sayint; farewell to our teachers, who have shown us such kindness and have borne so patiently with our shortcomings, we can only offer our most sincere thanks. To these and to our schoolmates we say, " Farewell. " Xow that our school days are finished and we are about to go forth from the protecting care of our . lma Mater to assume the duties and responsi- bilities that come in our path, there will be one bright page in our Book of Life that we can look back to with joy and pleasure and one bright pic- ture that will hang on memory ' s wall — these will be the happy days we spent together at the Normal School as the summer class of ' 05. F. JA? IES, S. ' 05. Dr. Croswell — You have been with us but one ear. yet in this short time you have endeared -ourself to the heart of every Senior. You ha e i)een our faithful friend through all this time, hut especially have we felt your friendliness during the last term. We have felt that you were always ready to share our joys and sorrows alike, and to help us in any way you ciuild. We thank you sincerely for this, and as we leave our school home we hope vou will remember us as kindly as we shall always remember vou. Gratefully your friend. EX ' ERY SFA ' IOR A. OUR SENIOR Name.

" THE " TIME " FAMINE ( ). the luiiy and ilrcary school luiur 1 ( ). the everlasting school hours! Ever longer, longer, longer Grew the hours on every i)rogram, Ever deeper, deeper, deeper Piled the work upon the Senior riled the work and well-nigh swaniiicd him L ' nder burdens much too heavy. Hardly from his pressing d uties Could the student find relief. Vainly wailed he of his sorrows. Sought for rest or help and found none. Saw no time for any " class-meets ' " — Saw no time for his rehearsals. Saw from tests no hope of rescue. Saw for tests no time to study. In the unavoidable " exam " Failed, and could not bring his work up. Failed, his soul in gloom and sorrow. Failed, and so passed from among us. (In their hearts a deailly sorrow, In their faces firmest resolve). Framed in words of burning eloquence. Written on the finest parchment. " O, our Faculty, the j Iighty, " Said they in their great petition, ' " Give us time to have class meetings, Give us time to write our notes up. Give us time for our rehearsals. Give us conferences no longer, Give us time or we shall all fail — We shall fail and recover never. " Through the far-extending hallways. Through the hallways long and devious ' ent the petition with its protest. Till it reached the Mighty Teachers. And was read by these, so mighty. But there came no other answer Than the echo of their crying. Than the echo of the hallways, " Never! ever! ever! never! " ( ), the anguish of the Seniors! All Room Y was filled with groaning With their bitter lamentations ! Burning were their words of protest. Sorrowful their words of distress, i ' orth then to the Mighty Faculty Sent the Seniors a ])etition. All week long the Seniors labored Over notes and plans and lessons. With no hope of help before them, With no hope of rescue near them. Seven long days and nights they laborei Hopeless, helpless, full of sorrow. But U])nn a sunny morning Lo ! they fovind their troul)les vanished, Their request liad not been unheard But the Faculty, the Mighty, Looked upon their woes with sorrow, Told them of the whys and wherefores That their trials had been so heav3% Told them how they longed to help tliem. How they had already helped them. Re-adjusting all their conferences ; Told them of their predecessors, And their hard and stony pathway ; Spoke to them sweet words of comfort, Alade the pathway seem more cheerful — And the future look more hopeful. J, TROXEL, S. ' 05. It has been said that a mother loves her most wayward child best because he has greatest need of her love. If this is true, and if an increase in love is proportional to the increase in waywardness, your devotion for your child of 1905 must almost amount to worship. This youngest child of yours has had ideas of her own on several subjects, and some of her ideas did not accord with your ideas as to what was " for her own good, " and what " she would thank you for when sne reached years of discretion. " She liked to dance : she liked to laugh and be gay ; she liked to skip through the halls ; she even liked to whistle. But you, knowing how detrimental such frivolity is to character building, put it down with kind, firm disapproval (especially firm). Occasionally she could not see all the privileges showered upon her, in the light you saw them. Naturally, at such times she chaffed and longed to be free from your be- neficent guidance. Sometimes she raised her voice in open protest or petition. Then she would wait anxiously for your decree. Her hopes would fall ; her hopes would rise ; then would come indifference. Meanwhile you made up your mind. If you re- laxed enough to compromise joy ran riot, and all her former love for you came rushing back. These are the kinds of experiences this 1905 child had while with you. Now that it is almost time for her to go the way of your other children, the remembrance of your severity is being lost. When she thinks of the friends she has made while with you, and how you really have made her strong to stand alone, it seems to her that these will be the memories to last. She can honestly say that now she has just as much respect and love for you, as she could have had if rebellic n had never held sway i ' l her heart. " MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING " Irene norl ' iiK-ier. ( iiic Ajiril iiioniiiii; ' . as the Facult} ' were leaviiis the clia])el. Miss I ' ark, an editinjj Senior of the " Exponent. " said to the Junior sitting in front of her. " May I speak to you after chorus for a few minutes? ' liereupoii this said Junior shivered and shook, w-ondering what a Senior would wish to speak to her for. Perhaps to tell her that if she could not sing alto all of the time she had better get out of the alto section. . 11 through song prac- tice she conscientiously strove to hit only alto notes and kept her eyes fairly glued on Miss Hagan " s baton. At last chorus was over, and Miss Park was saying, " Now we want this year ' s " Exponent " to be the best that was ever ]nd)lished. And among other things, we hope to have some short stories. Now I want you to wTite a story. Will you? " " Why. I can ' t write! But I will tell the girls of my class, and perhaps they will send in something. " " Very well — tell the girls, if you wish; but I want you to write something, for I was told that you can write. " " " Who told you that? " " " Oh. never mind who told me. You just get your story in as soon as possible. " The bells were ringing, so the puzzled Junior dashed down the hall toward the recitation room, lint instead of listening to Miss Dunn ' s explana- tion of the peculiar distinction between " ' rebellion " and ' " revolution, " she was thinking: " " Miss Park talks as if I am able to. and surclv will send in a winner. And I am the poorest one in our composi- tion class. What a predicament! I ' d just like to find out who told Miss Park that fairy tale. " But the ridiculous side of the situation was evi- dent even to this Junior. So at noon she hurried out to the lawn with lier lunch, and, with sighs and much laughter, poured out her troubles. Her friends thoroughly appreciated the joke, for they had had the pleasure ( ?) of hearing several of her masterpieces read to illustrate ditferences in opin- ion concerning grammar and spelling. " Girls, you would not laugh so much if you were me — I mean I. I wish I could write something. I hate to disappoint people, especially if they have such a good report of me as that Senior girl has. " With more merriment, the girls dismissed the matter, but not so our Junior. She, at least took the situation seriously enough. Half hours at a time she would gaze vacantly into space. Her sleep grew restless. She kept out of the halls ; chose the darkest corner of tlie library in which to study, that she might not meet Aliss Park. But despite all caution, she did meet her, and was com- pelled to answer the dreaded question: " How are you getting along with your story? " The thunder- bolt had fallen. How was she to answer? Should she again declare her inability, and disappoint a Senior who smiled so reassuringly? " No, I will write something, " she silently determined, and said aloud, " It is coming on quite well, thank you. " Coming on quite well? Nothing ever came on worse — or rather so completely refused to come on at all. But she had burned her bridges behind her, and had no choice but to go on and produce some- thing — anything. If before her nights were rest- less, now they became tortuous with hideous dreams of being drowned in an ink bottle, or stabbed to death with a pen. She became quite desperate. In fact, she had decided to ask the minister ' s advice, when — an inspiration came I One Saturday morning she wrote and wrote — nobody knew what ; and put the result in the joke box — nobody knew when. She ceased to dodge Miss Park, but had a new trouble. Being very fond of sweets, our authoress dared not go down town, lest she be tempted to buy chocolates with the only thirty-five cents that was available to purchase a copy of the " Exponent. " But the desire to own a printed copy of her story triumphed and kept the thirty-five cents intact. For this Junior did trust A story so excellent Into the " Exponent " Go it must. The " Exponent " was out at last! Our friend was among the first purchasers. She hastily looked through the table of contents. It was not there. Hut i)erhaps the stories were not mentioned in tlie cf)ntents. She turned over the pages — at first witli feverish haste : then more slowly, one by one. Could it be possible that they did not need it? She was still looking, when a group of her friends came up to share — the " Exponent " jokes. I ' actus (iAKDK.v at Rivkrsiiif..

How could he eat — where could he sleep — who would care for him ? Granny gone ! He had seen them take her away — the men who came in black clothes — with a great i)M . They had scared him. so he cowered in the darkest corner. He tried to cry out when lid ragged mattress, but ( ) ! why didn ' t drann} ' wake up, surely slu- wnuldn ' t go away and leave iiim. ])Ut she had gone, he had caught a glimpse of the ])oor tired white face. " (), dranny, " he had s()bl)cd, " wake up and I won ' t let you work so hard, my lek will get better some day and then " — but ( iramiy was gone, and the men had nut even heard the sob from the dark Cdrner. It was growing dark and cold, too. ' romniy drew the few rags closer about himself. It couldn ' t be true, what the ladv told him. Where w-as this the} ' took Granny from tlie his lips made no sound. place she called heaven, that was so beautiful with its golden gate and golden houses and the good God. Why hadn ' t they gone there long ago, in- stead of Granny working so hard and his foot al- ways hurting him so? Why, O. why did Granny finally go alone and leave him? Perhaps God thought he hadn ' t worked enough ; perhaps God thought he ought to walk there in- stead of being carried as Granny was. Anywav. Granny would be happy : she would see beautiful angels in white with golden hair, who would play beautiful music on golden harps. She would never have to work again, she would always be warm and never, never hungry. Something ached in Tom- my ' s throat, his eyes were burning. Then the people came in : Tommy knew they meant to be kind, but he wished they would go. He ate the bread they brought him ravenously. " I ' m sure I ' d be glad enough to take him, if he could help around some — do chores. But with my man sick, it ' s one burden alone I ' m able to care for, " Mrs. Ryan was saying. " What with my eight children, and him out of a job, it ' s not me that can take him, and him being lame. It ' ll have to be the poor house. They ' ll take him tomorrow. " The rest was but a hum in Tommy ' s ears. Poor- house ! No — never! So far away from God ' s house ! O ! he could never walk to God ' s house from there. No : he wanted no more bread. He was tirefl. His face was turned toward the wall. ell, let him sleep, tomorrow they would take him and so they left him. But lie wasn ' t tired; his eyes were opened wide, and burning more brightly than ever. Of course Granny didn ' t want him to go to the poor-house. She was in God ' s golden heaven ; she would want him there, too. She would have taken him with her if she hadn ' t been so tired and white. When she woke up and found he was not there, she would feel so badly. Poor Granny ! He would have tci go there himself. Yes: he would, early, before they came for him, he would go. His crutch would help him and (iranny would be so glad. The sun shining in thro ' the broken window woke him. He shivered and wished it were a warmer sun. ' as Granny awake? He looked to see, then he remembered. Yes. he must hurry. He must start now, before the people came for him. With Granny waiting for him in heaven he would surely get there some day. He ate what was left of the bread, then closed the door after him softly. It was hard getting down stairs. It hurt his back. No matter how careful, his crutch would make a noise. And O I if thev should hear him and carry him l)ack. He- held his breath. Finallv he was out in the allev. He drew a long hrcath. Wliich way should he go? Tlie lady who told him about heaven always came from that way. She knew so much about it, perhaps she had been there. Yes ! he would go that way. After he got away from the alley it would be easier to find the road. Why, then he could ask someone. In the alley no one would know. His leg hurt and his back ached, but then when he got to Granny he would forget this. It was easier walking in the wide streets, but it was hard tc ask. because nobody noticed him and everyone was in such a hurry. It was later now, the sun was stronger. It felt good, only the streets were so dusty and his feet hurt so. Those boys on the corner could perhaps tell him a shorter way to heaven. He would ask. l!ut they were cruel. Tommy hobbled away i|uicklv from their jeers. The taunts hurt worse than the ])iece of mud one had thrown. Xever mind, he would find the road himself and not ask again. He took the apple gratefully from the kind woman at the corner. He rested a mo- ment while he ate it. How tired he was. His back — (1. how it ached! Piut he must hurry. It was afternoon now and still he walkc l. How glad and how sur|)riscd (Irann}- would be — he almost smiled And perhaps God would cure his lame foot. He h ibbled a little faster; he was surely getting nearer heaven. The houses were getting larger; there were flowers and beautiful trees in every yard. And still he walked. The sun was going down — it grew darker — there were lights in the windows. The high gates before the houses were all closed. O I but Granny would tell God to leave the gate of Heaven open so Tommy could come in. He gasped. This beautiful house, with its golden gate, was open. O, surely — . He went in, his heart was beating hard; it almost hurt. The trees, and he could smell a hundred different flowers. TRe grass felt good to his feet ; it was like velvet. O ! in heaven everything is beautiful. And there was music, too. He heard it somewhere in this beau- tiful house. He reached the low window — it was open. Tommy ' s heart stood still. Truly this was heaven. The ceilings and walls were gold ; the chairs and tables were gold ; on the center-table was a tall candelebra with lighted candles. It, too. was gold. Tommy was motionless. Who was this coming into the room? A tin) ' child dressed in white with golden curls. " An angel, " he whispered. The an- gel was leaning against the center-table, pulling at the cover. How it was Tommy never knew, but in a flash the candles had fallen and the flimsy wdiite of the child was aflame. " God ' s angel — to burn! ' With a cry Tomm - rushed toward the flame, tore the burning stuff from the child. " God, don ' t let the ansrel burn, " was in his heart. He lieard voices — saw the angel caught up by someone and murmured. " God won ' t let his angel burn. " When he awoke the sun was shining into his room. Everything was white and the bed was so soft, it was surely heaven now. He opened his eyes; a kind man bent over him. " God. " he whis- pered. A sweet-faced lady came to him. " God ' s wife. " His face was rapt. " And the angel, " he whispered eagerly, " you wouldn ' t let your angel burn. " God ' s wife kissed him. He lay back happily; heaven was good. " Tell Granny I came to her, " he murmured — " came to heaven to be with Gran- nv. " His face was happv as he slept. BIRDIE MIRIAM PHILLIPS. THE SECRET OF A HAPPY LIFE Uy lelville Dozier. How often do we hear the expressit n " Is life worth the living? " An utterance which indicates that the speaker is, for the time being, at least, im- mersed in some overwhelming sorrow or writhing under some bitter disappointment. The question is not always asked as a meaningless form of words, to denote one ' s fleeting disappointment over the miscarriage of a carefully laid plan or the blasting of a fondly cherished hope. It sometimes becomes tlie persistent query of the soul, jiressing for an answer and refusing to be quieted. But to whom is the question addressed? To the soul itself. And, in making answer, the soul seeks to find argument only within the region of its own consciousness and its own experience. The recollections of the past, perchance, but recall a mournful succession of failures ; the con- sciousness of the present recognizes only a dark cloud enveloping all that seems most dear ; the con- templation of the future is full of doubt and un- certainty ; and the poor soul, gnawing upon its own vitals, depressed by its own gloom, harassed by its own doubts and fears, sinks into hopeless de- spair; and, at one supreme moment of fatal deter- mination, takes the frightful leap into eternity, the -ictim of its own resolution of despair. To such a black doom have many of our fellow- men been driven in the past, and are being driven with increasing frequency during these days of bitter strife in business, of heartless rivalry in social life, and of a faithless attitude toward God and his revealed religion. Then surely the secret of a happy life must be the opposite of what will produce these direful effects. From what source do these effects emanate? In a word, from selfishness. It is the self-centered life that recognizes in his fellow his opponent in- stead of his friend, his rival instead of his helper. It is tile sell-centered life that prefers to utter criti- cism rather than commendation, that takes a grim pleasure in the misfortunes of others rather than a delight in their success. It is the self-centered life that is ever seeking to receive benefit at the expense of others rather than to confer benefit u])on others. Such a life is essentially narrow, and frum neces- sity grows narrower. Feeding as it does upon things pertaining only to self, the springs of its activities become weakened by constant tension at the same ])oints : the motives of its ambition become sordid : and. as the faculties of mind and body wane, the f)nlv basis of hope and inspiration crumbles into nothingness, and the life goes out in gloom. What then is the secret of a happy life? E i- dentlv altruism, in its highest and broadest sense. The ha])])y life recognizes itself as a gift from God for (lodlike purposes, as an embodiment of mind and matter created for noljle ends, and destined to abide forever. Such a conception of life will see in itself a won- derful instrument for the accomplishment of good, l- ' eet to run on messages of mercy ; hands to min- ister to the necessities of the needy; ears to listen patiently to the plaint of the distressed ; eyes to beam approvingly upon the innocent and the jo - .lUs: an l a tongue to speak words of sympathy .111(1 encouragement. These are but the physical agencies through which the altruistic soul makes manifest its atti- tude towards its fellows, and in the exercise of these finds its chief delight. Recognizing itself as a messenger of God for good to the creatures of God. it finds true happi- ness only in the performance of its sacred ministry. Its activity is its life, and its effectiveness grows with exercise. Such a life is essentially humble, for its interest in others crowds out any tendency to self-aggrandizement. It is contented, for it recog- nizes the guidance of a hand higher than itself. It is peaceful for it has the api)ro al of a good con- science. Such a life sees (iod " s power and God ' s char- acter stamped uijon land and sea ; upon the at- mosphere and all the elements of nature ; upon the laws of matter and the laws of mind ; upon the mysteries of life and the aspirations of the soul. Such a life is union with God. now and fore er. Such a life is " wurlh the living! " " There is a flower which grows on the most inaccessible cHffs of the Ty- rolese mountains, where the chamois dare hanlly venture, and which the hunter, tempt- ed !)}• its beauty and by his love (for it is immense- ly valued by the Swiss maidens), climbs the cliffs to g-ather, and is sometimes found dead at the foot, with the flower in his hand. It is called by the Swiss " Edelweiss, " which signifies Xoble Puritv. " — Ralph Waldo Emerson. Away up on Ellis street in foggy, tunuiltuous. cosmopolitan San Francisco, there is a little book store whose windows display the latest fiction, trig and trim in bright, attractive dress, flippantly smil- ing back at venerable, but slighted, grandparents (long since laid on the shelves), who wait in tat- tered Quaker-like garb with a pathetic dignitv all their own. I think it was a tantalizing glimpse of these last that lured me into the little shop, and an unex- pected air of quaintness inside that held me there. The walls were lined with a heterogeneous col- lection of second-hand books, ranging, in point of literary merit, from the works of Shakespeare and lesser poets to the ponderous platitudes of the staid old English no -el, placed side bv side in reckless democracy with sensational penny-a-liners of om- inous and gore — suggesting titles realis tically done in vermilion and black. .A rocking-chair in which knitting-needles were gleaming from a roll of bright-colored worsteds waited, emi)ty but ex- pectant, behind the counter. Here and there on the walls knitted oblongs of worsted tipped with bright tassels had been hung over scars in the ugly dark paper; but overhead, long strips of the damp paper drooped disconsolateh from perspirmg rafters. And over and pervading all was the dank, musty smell of old leather and bad drainage, which experience had taught me invariably to associate with old book stores, and had thriftily combined into one sensation. While I was taking this comprehensive inventory a young woman responded to the summons mys- teriously given by an unseen bell, and in monoto- nous, even tones enquired my pleasure. Her thick flaxen hair was braided closely and wound round and round her head. A pair of limpid blue eyes, like a tired child ' s, looked out of a sweet face on which there had settled an expression of placid sadness. There was something so quaint and Old Worldly about her, something, withal, so remote and Alpine, that at the first sound of her foreign accent, my ever-facile fancy hastened to array her in the white guimpe, straight, full skirt, and pictur- esque bodice of the Swiss village girl. But, alas for my rdinaiitic i.-x])cctatiiin.s. ,s1k- woro iIk ' csscii- tiall ' ])n)saic and ever-i)btru.sive shirlwaisl. with llie " (lii) effect " reversed after the manner of the miinitiated ! It was all so incongruous! The little dark, close room with its shelves upon shelves of musty books; the sharp rattle and muffled roar of near and dis- tant traffic; the ne vsl)oy " s shrill, iiersisting cry — and the oft ' ending shirtwaist — all these conspired to upset all my preconceived notions of the eternal Illness of things. A little village at the foot of one of the snow-covered Alps — way up in the high, pure air: old women in fresh white caps l;nitting on the doorsteps; the tinkle of bells from the herds on the hillside; plenty of snow- and flaxen braids, anci — rosy cheeks, and — and — Swiss cheese! That was the api)ropriate setting for her type. Hut here she was. amid all the sordidness that eharaclcrizcs the unprosperous portions of a great city, standing with averted face and general atti- tude of Itopeless apathy, repeating her question in thick, clumsy Knglish ! I was romantic and eighteen and 1 rebelled. I found m3self vaguely wondering liow she would look if siie were to smile. There would be a dim])le. I was sure. . nd if she were to langli. iiow merrily the l)lue eyes would twinkle, and her whole compact little body vibrate with wholesome Teutonic mirth! it would do her g io(l, 1 reflected. I would trv. . s she was esidently accustomecl to being treated as a mere machine — something that handed down books antl changed money — 1 expected that she would be surprised at my addressing her in a friend- ly way. l!ut 1 was not prepared for the meaning- less, lack-lustre stare, so pathetic in its utter vacuity, that met my first attempt to draw her out. However. I rattled bravely on, determined to win a smile, or perish in the attempt. Would she make the selection for me: 1 really did not know what to choose. Yes. I had read " Ramona. " I wanted some- thing dift ' erent — ery dift ' erent. ' ellow. flaming blossoms were beautiful, but at home I had known dififerent flowers — cool, sweet ones that did not scorch the eyes. I was so tired of it — the blaze of the sun on burning fields. At home it was not so. There were always the dark, cool forests, an d bevond them, mountains and snow. All summer there was the bright little spring — and then the beautiful blue lake in the valley! I had struck the right chord, (iradually that inner light that had been obscured and well-nigh smothered began to glow and shine through her eyes. Wonder, then sympathy, and finally a pite- ous eager interest illumined the now mobile face of the listening girl. She leaned breathlessly for- ward, with hands childishl}- clasped, her cheeks glowing, the blue e_ -es. elo(|iient of the unutterable Iiciniorah uf tlic ' J ' eulun, luminous and sparkliii.t; ' through unshed tears. She understood, she said. She had been like that — hungry for snow. And the flowers. Yes,, yes, she knew ! She could not re- member the strange names on all the books, but there was one — just one little book whose name she never forgot. She had it in her room ! She would get it for me ! She ran into the little back room, and reappeared immediately with a little age-yellowed paper book. Eagerly turning the pages, she told how she found it, and had kept it ever since. Siie knew those ])laces — Apjjenzell, Knuslingen, the wooded Span- ureute — she had been over them so often. She liad one of those flowers (shyly). Anton had given it to her. Ah. yes ! She understood ! Just then I saw the title. And then I untler- stood. for it was " Edelweiss. " lAUD PARK. S. ' 05. A PLEA FOB. THE NATIVE PLANT The too common tendency among Americans, a tendency which fortunately shows a measure of abatement, is shown in our turning to foreign coun- tries for the best in the arts or in the crafts, for the fashion, for the novel, for the interesting. How often the small domestic-made article is stamped in bold letters " Made in iernian y ' ur with S(jme other ei|uall} " fictitious statement — tictitimis yet valuable in that it catches the purchaser by working upon this same tendency to place at a premium the imported ! True it may be and too often is that the younger industry of our country or the o er haste of our impatient builders of industrv ha ' e gi ' en good ground for this faith in the foreign prod- uct, yet let us not have our judgment blinded i . other matters. We may have been too busy build- ing a ymnig nation to learn to make the best jack- knives — well and good, we have builded the nation — the jack-knives may come later. We call our half of the globe the new world. That newness applies onlv to its political history. Geologically we are as venerable as time itsell. (ieographically we are as broad and as various as any of that world which calls us new. The great manufactories of Xature. the forges and the moulding pits wherein were cast and wrought the magnificent species of our fauna and flora are not sprung up in a night to luirry forth a cheap and sell- (piick article with the magic words stamped across the box " Made in Germany. " Wh - then underrate tliose things that are an heritage to us by Xature and look abroad for the trees we plant about our school-house, in our public park or in our own door- vard to be our companions day after day? He is rich who sees value in the things near about him. Vou iiia - Iniy a canary bird for so many cents, ' on lake it home and teed it and it sinsjjs for yon. I ' oor little things !

" Can you by paying any number of cents or dollars, compel a song sparrow to live in your .ledge? Can anything less than your appreciative protection persuade him to? Is the joyousness of his song or the electric energy of his action possi- ble to a caged bird? You teach the canary your song and peo])le say " How interesting. " Vhal would they say if the song sparrow were to leach you his? The canary is a foreigner or an artificial s|)ecies become cosmo])olitan. The song sparrow is a bit of your own native surroundings to be won only with love and appreciation. Is the home product not as good as the foreign? Would the song s])arrow l;e more distingue as a songster if stamperl with a foreign mark? I ' ortunately some among us and still more for- tunately, those in authority ofHimes " nave an ap])re- ciation of our native forms and as a result we have forest and game preserves. Yet these enlightened ones are all too few and we need much missionary work done in the great healliendom of nnap])recia- Mon. Who are more fitted to do this work than the teaclK-r going out as they do to handle Ihiiikih- ity in that most receptive stage, the school period? Do you (piestion the need of such missionary effort? In the Arroyo Seco, just at our city limits is a sui)erb grove of natural trees. The deep canon is studded thick with live oak. sycamore, black al- der. po])lar and willow, throwing a cool dense shade beneath which a ] erennial spring is ke|it alive even through the long trying summer: yet these trees are being turned into fire wood. This is done, not t ' nat the land may l)e cleared for the growing of crops either, for down under those ven- erable old oaks, more than a century old. typical C ' alifornians, there are being ])lautetl eucalyptii — those rapid growing e.xotics so out of harmony with the surroundings, but such (juick wood producers. .Surely, as John .Muir so a])tly ]iuts it, " The money changers are in the lenink ' . ' ( ) ur e fforts in behalf of nati e ijlants may be directed along two different lines: (i) the preser- vation of existing indi iduals, and (2) the preserva- tion of s])ecies by planting new individuals. With- in our cily limits and among larger land holders outside who are thoughtful we have many of the pictures(|ue old oaks and sycamores preserved with some care. . t the State L ' niversity. every tree of the thousand or more natives on the grounds has been carefully examined to the smallest branch, all decayed ])laces chiseled out clean, coated inside with ftr, then i)lugge l liki- an old tooth, with I ' orilaml cement. TIu ' ravag ' es of the decay organisms are thus stopped and the hves of the old trees un- doubtedly prolonged. Many of our own trees need similar attention. I know a tine old sycamore growing in the yard of one of our Los . ngeles homes where flowers are planted in a hollow of the trunk. The constant moisture and the searching roots of the smaller jjlant cannut Init hasten the decay of this old tree. Our smaller plants need attention, too. So many are suffering through the e])hemeral desire of peo- ple who wish to transplant them to their home gar- dens but who lack the constancy of purpose or the patience to do more than pull up the main roots, carry them about in a lunch basket till, sadly with- ered, they are cast aside, or if thrust into the ground, neglected after the second watering. Had you thought that it could be wasteful to gather too many wild flowers at once? How often we see tired people coming in on the long line cars bearing great armfuls of flowers that look more tired than they! A lavish gift by Xature does not excuse a profligate waste. A cluster of half a dozen of our graceful and delicate shaded Mariposa lilies cannot be surpassed for delightful, apijealing beauty. Each varioush ' tinted blossom appeals to you and in- vites you to drink enjoyment from its modest cup. Yet too often we see this flower gathered into a great Ijarbaric bouquet with the inner blossoms crushed among the stems that have novv ' lost their gracefulness in a mass effect of wirey stifTness. The coloring is too refined and delicate to mass into such an armful wdiere it loses its charm completely. 1 cannot look upon such as other than sinful wasti of next }ears store. The picker yields to the les refined instinct to gather " such a tremen- dous hunch of Mariposas. " As a result our Mari- posa lily is, each year, harder and harder to find. It is litera:lly being driven from our vicinity, if not pursued to its death. We rejoice in the free- dom of the bird or the butterfl - and it is only the barbaric within us that prompts the boy to knock down the butterfly witli his cap. Can we not teach him that the flower is most beautiful on its own stem or, if plucked at all, it should be taken reverently and cared for properly? Perhaps the most effective work we teachers can do. however, is in the direction of planting new individuals. The natural trees here in our southern country are more or less restricted to the water courses. The flowers are trampled out of our city yards and one must go far to find them in their natural en- vironment. To have native species about us there- fore, we must do more or less of the work of projj- agation. What end can our school garden serve more worthily than the rousing of a desire within the child to culti ate iilants for himself at home: What liisjjlu ' r ambition in this iionit- j ardcnini than tlu ' (k ' sirc to perpetuate- nur nati i. ' s|)ocics ' ' W ithin ciur city, striking; " in tiic aijiindancc nf its trees and shnihliery. we have little that is not arti- licially planted. How much of this jjlantation is of native forms? Everyone seems to have striven for some stranjje effect, somethinp; novel or strik- ini f till our sjardens and parks are plant museums if not. in some cases, actual junk shops. Do our chihh ' en see a native tree once a year except as they l;o on ])icnics? Many of the Normal students in- clude in the catesjory of native trees the pejiper • ind the eucalyptus and do not even know the syca- more l)v slight. This is someone ' s fault. Can we in anv measure correct it? In many communities here ' ou 4jo, the teacher will be looked to for ad- vice in matters of pul)lic improvement, in the plant- iuij; of street trees, the layinof out of ]iarks, the t, ' roun(ls of public buildinjjs. court house, church or. at least, her own domain, the school house, h ' s- tablish here the native species. ■What are its advantagfes, " you will be asked. If the educative advantajje be not enoujjh. consider the perfect adai)tation to climatic conditions, ttie Illness in producing; natural effects, the great at- traction it has for native l)irds.

Tlu ' ten-inch stumj) of one of the same species cut down in the Arroyo Seco showed but twelve an- nual rings. Can we not wait so long for a tree? Plant then some rapid-growing species beside the slower ones and weed them out as they pass their l)rime. lea -ing the more permanent form still in its inithful xiijor. 1 ha e been able to meastn ' e the U;iiips (if SL-Ncral s])eciiiK ' ns of llu- native l)lack alilcr. a funii wliich does well in eullixalicm. [n more than one specimen the dianieter ot twenty inches was attained in ten years. If this l)e too slow for us I fear for our future usefulness. Are these trees not interesting? " Fis true the sycamore does not hear j reat masses of scarlet flowers hut — are you sorry? Is there not ])eauty in its velvet youn,s; leaves so tender .screen al)ove and warm l rown below, in its glossy adult leaf, in its smooth cool-looking, white bark? This fine species responds readily to cultivation and goes niore than half way to meet our desire for the rapid grower. ( )ur native majjle. tlie bay, elder, poplar and the sujjerb conifers of our southern mountains are cer- tainly worthy u ' . r interest. Among the shrubs we have all shades of color and ■arieties of shape or branching that the land- scape gardener may call for. ' e have the beau- tiful Manzanita, the glossy-leaved lemonade bush, the wild i)lum and the wild cottee — all beautiful foliage shrubs. The fruit of the last three is es- pecially attractive to birds. The California hollv, in cultivation, overloads itself with the brilliant Christmas berries — a worthy shrub for .my gar- den. The ceanothus with its fragrant spikes of ])ale blue flowers w ' ell merits its name of wild lilac. The sail bushes and .--ages give us color contrasts in foliage that make po.-. ibie the most beautiful e fleets. .Among our flowers, tlie great .Matilija poppy ami the yellow tree popp . were they Ijut newdy intro- duced from New Zealand, would be in demand for every garden. ( )ur resplendent, golden-orange eschscholtzia is being cultivated quite extensively now in California, its native heath, yet it is quite as common and often more prized in the gardens of Europe. This form, t ' nough, is sufifering at the hands of the florist gardener who lias culti ated it and. bv selective l)ieeding, produced forms of the most arsenic yellow or faded white. Our native blue and scarlet larkspurs. Colum- bines, golden rod, mimulus, Mariposas, shooting stars, agaves and cacti give a wealth of color and variety of form that leave little to be desired. Have we then nothing worthy our attention in California? Have we not the useful and the beauti- ful? Have we not endless variety that will satisfy the need of him wiio will but seek? Do Americans, with all the length and breadth of so resourceful a country to rlraw from, need to go abroad for the tree or the shrnlj which is to be a part of the Ikhiic as a door yard companion?

As an instructor he has no more compelling duty and no greater privilege than to convey to his jjupils. in whatever grade the}- may be. the secret of the art of study and developing in them enthusiastic love of knowledge. It nee;; s constantly to be borne in mind, and we are con- tantly in danger of forgetting it. that from an edu- cational point of view, the value of knowledge con- sists not solely, or, perhaps chiefly, in its possession, but also in the benefits arising through the jirocess of ac(|uisition. The mere passive reception of truth of any kind has little transforming power. It is onlv when the mind is conscious of ])Utting forth efifort. when it is actively overcoming re- sistance, when it is eager and aspiring that its acquisitions ])romote growth and develop power. The learning, as distinguished from the receiv- ing, process, w ' nether in child or youth, demands the expenditure of energy to overcome, to know, to test; it means that truth shall be the jjrecious re- sult of research and discovery, not the unearned and little ))rized award of inilifference. Thus to pro- mole the process of learning through study is one ' t ' the most ini])ortant functions of the leacluT. Uut it is impossible that any teacher will e er succeed in this who has not himself learned what it means by his own experience. It is not what he says of the value of knowledge nor his preachments t)n the pleasures of study, but an experience of benefits in which he is able to make his pupils participate that will give to them zeal for stutl} ' and the pursuit cjf truth. Only interest can awaken interest. There is no inspiration in a leadership that never had ferxor and earnestness or that has grown cold and apathetic. The teacher who never adds to the stock of knowleilge with which he start- ed, wdio fi.xes the limits of his research by the range of the course of study which he teaches, who makes no investigation, obtains no larger view, gains no clearer insight is the teacher whose instruction is without ins])iration and whose presence in the school-room brings stupefaction. In a much larger degree than is often realized the true teac her is a leader. Xot propulsion but at- traction is the force which tells in the sc ' nool-rooni. So far as study is concerned demonstration rather than statement is the efficient means of proxing to |)U])ils its value ;md of K ;iding them to lo e it. I. !■■. Mii.i.. i ' . n;ii. ■ §— = THE MIDDLE C CLASS The Miildlc C class feL-l that a history ut so com- pHcated an organization would l)c all too technical for pleasant reading, therefore we submit to you the opinions of various of our teachers with whom we are best acquainted : " Do I remember anything of the M. C " s as ba- bies in the Normal ? A ' hy of course! I am not apt to forget our last ' regular ' class. The ' one and (inl -. ' you say? Yes, such a ])ronounced influence upon the school life, that ' s true, f well remember groans from quiet souls in the u|)])er halls because of the chattering of these same young people in season and out. But you could work ; always ready for library study and fine, strong reports even as Junior B ' s. Take it all in all. yours is a pretty good class and Ave hojie i u will keep to- gether and not drop by the wayside. " " The ] I. C. girls I know best, and so far. of course, as I am concerned they are the Ijest ; as for the boys, quality, not quantity. " " Polite, pleasant, patient, prompt, pushing, prac- tical, prudent, painsfaking. prepossessing and pro- ficient. " " The ?iliddle C class is an unusually happy com- pound this year. Among them we find excellent examples of personal grace and dignity : not a few of the leading spirits of the Y. ' . C. A. (which ought to stand for all that is excellent and admir- able), a strong tendency to innocent fun ; and both a spirit and a capacity for genuine hard work. The only defect in the class is that they can boast of only two young men, but this is certainly not the fault of the girls. " We would not, however, take all this delightful praise to ourselves, but would ascribe the greater portion to those who have so ably directed us through two terms of school, to our class teachers.

Miss Merrill says nf the Capitola Conference: " We came from Ca])itola with ari(}us distinct im- pressions tonching our s))iritual lives. When we view them at the tlistance of a few weeks ' time we . ee that Capitola remains most firmly with ns as an embodiment of wholesome Christianity. There were ' good times. ' ' jolly ' times, with the most de- lightful students from all our Western colleges, but best of all was the new vista of Christianity which those sjjlendid leaders opened to us. . ever for a moment was the real aim of the conference l(jst sight of. During the field sports, in the ex- cursions, at the receptions, the Christ-love wa.s always felt. We learned that the Christian ' s life was not one of long-faced, self-humiliation, but was really the most useful, hap])y. and beautiful life which we could have. Ca])itola raised our standard of womaidn)od and of Christianity. " Miss W ood says : " Cajjitola ought to send a .Xormal School girl home with the determination to put the Christ spirit into her life, to make her part of the world a pleasanter place to live in ; home happier, church stronger, school brighter ; to be a student who does not divorce intellect from religion, nor fun from earnest w jrk ; a sttident who, i n being graduated, will be to the pupils in her own school a true woman first and a teacher second ; then will she be a teacher as ready to satisfy hun- ger of the s])irit as hunger of the min l — the sort of teacher our children are looking for. And the best of it all is that what Capitola ought to do. it does. " Although this year has been gratifying in many regards, still there are many lines of work which have not been developed as they should have been. With our ideals higher, more and better organized workers, and Christ for our hel])er. we hope to make next year ' s Association of greater benefit to the Xormal School. FTHKI. V.

THE GLEE CLUB The Glee CIuIj of the Los Angeles State Xormal School is an organization of young ladies, twenty- five in number, who. with ] Iiss Jennie Hagan as directress, meet regularly once a week for practice in the music room. After these most strenuous meetings they cover themselves and the dear old Xormal with glory at events such as Teachers " Institute, concerts and Granduation Days. The work of this year has been especially good. The first term opened with Elizabeth Weber as president. Edith Erwin as vice-president. INIinnie Blair as secretary and treasurer, and Lucile .Sa -- age as accomjianist. The first event in which the club participated was the Teachers ' Institute. At this time they sang two songs entitled. " Pussy Willow Had a Secret. " and " The Last Rose of Summer. " . fter a long still silence, vigorous ap- plause broke forth and in response to this the club favored them with another selection. Just one word, please, of explanation concerning this last song which proves so conclusively the originality and al)ility of the club as a musical factor of the school. This song was composed liy a friend of the club, set to music and first given to the public liy the Glee Club. The song is here given as concrete proof : First verse — " We arc the ])ri le of the town. We can sing both up and down, For we have throsAs just like I ' atti The jolly singers of the Glee. " Second verse — " There is no song we cannot sing L ' ntil we make the rafters ring; Whether Wagner. Schumann or Mozart We know them all oft ' by heart. " Third verse — " For every function we ' re on hand — We take the place of a band — And whether you are grave or gay We ' ve tunes that surely fit the day. " Refrain — " Oh ! the lark and the linnet They really are not in it With the jolly, jolly singers of the Glee. ' Probably all who read this song will desire to sing it. If so. all you must do is to sing it to the tune of " There is a Tavern in the Town. " Perhaps the readers of the Exponent will re- member the delightful evening they spent at the Normal School auditorium listening to the Cradle Songs of all nations. This entertainment was pre- sented bv members of the Glee Club in honor of the Wintt-r (Iraduating Class of 1905. At the grad- uation exercises of this class, the chih rcmlered two selections: " Welcome. I ' rett} ' I ' riinrose I ' lower " and " A I.ullahy. " The second term opened with Ray Hanna as president. Edna Callantyne as vice-president. Edith lCr in as secretary and treasurer and Edna Car- ])enter as accompanist. The club has not given any special entertainment this term, but at the gradua- tion of the " (llorious Class of 1905. " the club wijl do its best to make the day a memorable one in the lives of every graduate. The club this year con- tains a large number of Senior A girls, and to them and the graduating class the club sends forth the cr - : " l-iMig l.ive the Class of 1905. " EDITH ER IX.

Shepardson ' s was given, the following sentiment was -oiced by si.x girls in ciiorus : Am lie went, are he gone? Have he left we all alone? Us can never go to he Him can never come to we. It cannot was ! Which very fittingly expressed our regret at Prof. Shophardson ' s near departure. Senior B ' s Receive Senior A ' s Though not very well attended, the reception was greatly enjoyed liy those who did come, and being the only affair held outside of the Normal walls in the year, it is usually looked forward to with a great deal of pleasure. It was held this ' ear in the Woman ' s Club House, which was beauti- fidl ' trimmed with long branches, greens, and white flowers, the lights softened with bobinct gathered around them. The evening was spent in dancing, one of the numbers being a fancy drill, given by twenty-four girls of the class dressed in 1830 costumes. OtHer Social Events of the Year A Y. W. C . . reception to new students and old was held in the .Students ' Hall and Gym. at the beginning of the year. . program was gi -en, in which Faculty and students took ])art, the new stu- dents especially appreciating a ]iapcr reail liy .Mrs. English, in which she pointed mU the chief and distinguishing characteristics to be looked for by them in the different members of the Facultv. Olee Club Entertainment This was a very delightful evening given b_ ' Miss Hagan ' s (ilee Club as a complimentary to the winter graduating class. Lullabies from different lands were given, and not only were they sung in the language of the country from which they were taken, but the stage was arranged with curtains so that each lullaby had a stage-setting of its own, with the singer dressed and surrounded with scen- ery according to the country she represented. This was a very unique and original way of ])resenting these songs, which were beautiful in themselves, and were only made more charming liy their set- ting. Especially Ijeautiful were the .Spanish lullaby bv Rav Hanna and Rea Parks, and the English by iMiss White. Miss (lill introduced herself to the .Vornial people by a very beautiful reading of Enoch Arden, ac- companied by music, near the beginning of thf year. She has replaced the torture of morning platform reading to which in former times the .Sen- ior .A ' s were subjected, by a more interesting tor- ture, at least to the listener, in recitals, given twice a month hv .Senior . ' s. These readings repri ' sent the best literature, both prose and ])oetr -. and have become very interesting entertainments. Some of tlie most enjoyable this year have been " The Mer- chant of Venice. " " The Hoh- (Irail " with music. " Comus. " given at night with costumes and scen- erv. and a little farce. Factxlty R.eception Ihe I ' aculty were off their dignit} ' this evening and received us in a friendly and social wa -. They hardly looked natural out from behind their re- s|iective desks, and we were at first timid and back- ward about addressing them, but after we became accustomed to seeing them walk among us like ordi- nary mortals, our timidity wore off. and we found tliat Miss Dunn could talk about a great many iitiier things besides locker-keys, and jjesides was a royal hostess, and that Miss MUiot could spend a whole evening without even mentioning references. In short, we had a very good time, and just before going home we all gathered aroiuid tlie piano and ang old songs, with Mr. Miller leading us. St. PatricK ' s Celebration he . ' iniiir I ' ■ took the (neasinn tu ha e a mas- ipu ' i ' aile part) ' in the iym. tu which were invited iinl - the ladies of the [• " acuity, . imie (if the .Senior A ' s. iindering greatly at this lack nf cmirtesy on the part of the .Senior ITs, stole upon them en masque, to find out why they were so exclusive. There, instead of the ladies which they expected to find, were twenty or thirty men and Ijoys. dressed in very ill-fitting clothes, a great number of little girls in short dresses, with bobbing curls and very few of the Senior B class and ladies of the Faculty recognizable, though they imagined they could see here and there an excited face very much like the faces of some of those same ladies of the Faculty. Thinking it was surely an illusion, however, and seeing that they were having a good time, the Senior .A ' s who were past such folly and really felt out of place amidst such levity, left them. Glee and Choral Club Picnic The loth of June is certainly remembered by the musical clubs at Normal with a great deal of ])leas- ure. . lthough nominally the dice Club was enter- taining the Choral Club at .Miss Hagan ' s hcMiie in Los . laniitos. Miss Hagan herself was the real entertainer, and in her jolly gracious wav made us thoroughly enjoy everything we did. to employ the day. which was surf- and phmge-bathing in the morning, lunch at noon on the lawn, and games in the afternoon. We went home in the i ' ening wit ' ' a ver_ - hap])y day tu remendier. ISAi;i-:i. C( )1.LI S. KINDERGARTEN In Memoriam Sorrow has come close to the Ki nderg-arten De- I 3 I ■ partment the past winter BAvi iSi.-Mte • JlL ' -- in the death ' of our be- loved Miss Lawson. Her presence ling ers in the rooms where she taught so long, and we still seem to hear her spring- ing step through the halls bringing before us the brightness of her face and the charm of her per- sonality. ] liss Lawson ' s influence was ever for gond. Slu stood for all that was highest and noblest in any relationship of life, and we think of her not only as a faithful and beloved teaciier. but as a friend evei ready to cheer and advise. Xo student who came to her failed to feel that keen personal interest, or the power of the high ideals she held. ' hile she demanded much of us, she demanded more of her- self, and we ga -e her our best efforts freely and gladly. Untiring in effort and energy, steadfast in her purpose, true in every fibre of her intense nature, she was indeed an insjiiration. Love and alle- .giance must ever follow her and her niemor - and influence will live not onlv in the hearts, but in the lix ' es of " her yirls. " The following resolutions, drawn up bs Miss I- ' rench, were adopted by the Kindergarten Alum- nae and the Senior class, and sent to Miss Lawson ' s sisters in N ' ashington : Resolved. That the organization, growth and continuance of the Kindergarten Department con- nected with the State Xormal Sciiool in Los .- n- geles, was due chiefly to the untiring in(lustr ' and ability of Miss Florence Lawson. Resolved, Thatnot only those who felt her in- spiring influence as a Kindergartner. Init all who knew her. and experienced S(nnething of her social charm, suffer a distinct loss in her death. Resolved, That in her attitude toward individual students. Miss Lawson was a source of ins]iiration and an exponent of the highest relationships of life. The " Florence Lawson " I)ed in the Children ' s Hospital of Los Angeles, endowed and supported l)y members of the Kindergarten .-Klumnae Associa- tion and other friends, will stand as a memorial to Miss Lawson ' s work, and to her influence, and will speak of the love of many hearts. Another loss conu ' s in the death of Katherint jrace Allen, a nuMuber of the Kindergarten class " ' )nj. and niu ' imu-li hclnvcd hv classmates and AUunnai ' . Filleil with enthusiasm for her work, reahzing fully its responsibilities and its duties, she had al- ready fell the joy of success, yet wdien called to la it aside by illness, to abandon the hopes and ambi- tions so dear to her heart, she did so ])atiently and l)ravely. Strength and sweetness, unselfishness and loyalty were characteristics that endeared Iter to all who knew her. When the .X ' ormal opened last Se|)teniber. the .Senior Kindergartners came back with a very home- sick feeling for our dear .Miss Lawson, but before many days had passed, we found that the one who had come in her stead was e(|ually lovable and had soon won all our hearts. When our great grief came in the sad news of Miss Lawson ' s sudden death. Miss French stood our staunch friend and comforter; and if we hadn ' t already given her our hearts " devotion we would have (lone so then. Her practical instruction, gen- tle influence, and the jolly good times we have had together will make this, our Senior year, one ne er to be forgotten. I )ear Isabel French To the class-room went, Icj have a recitation on Play, But w ' hen she got there The class-room was bare. And so no reciting that day. She sent for Helen to come to her place. Hut when she was found she was making a face. . ext Emma was sought, but alas, and alack. She ' d eloped with an luirl and wiuild never come l)ack. I- ' or Beatrice Beckett she next glanced around. But she. of course, was nowhere tn be found. She gave Chase to a foot ])rint out cm the path. lUU found only excuses to heighten her wrath. She thought surely ' illa would be within reach. But she was up in Assembly making a speech. Even Anna and Katherine and .Mabel so trne This once failed to turn up when they were due. .So dear Isabel French ISack to Boston she went With worry and sorrow ([uite sjient. Resolved in the Hub to stay ever more: Those girls out West were a terrible bore. JUNIOR KINDERGARTNERS This class assenil)k-il Scptt-iiiber 5tli, 1904, in tlic Kindergarten rooms, and we spent the first two days of our young life learning our jiroper name, and our position in the new world. As M. B. V. we started on our journey, meeting obstacles, as amoeba and the nervous system of the lobster so frequently and courageously that the feeble cry, ■ " U girls, what shall we do? " changed to " Cheer up. it may not be as bad as it seems. " and " It ' s good for us. " As a class, we possess some charming charac- teristics. We are united, active, and cheerful — on the whole well-disposed. Three of our number can tell us what to do. and when to do it, through pre- vious ex]3erience, the girl with the auburn hair and divided affections, our pink painter, and our lirown- eyed alto, illustrious member of the Glee. One of us possesses a conscience, one is a jewel done up in a small package, another exhibits a mislead- ing gentleness of manner with mild firmness be- hind it. We have one who loves Xature, and one who is not discouraged by any difificultv. In February we metamorphosed, and became -M. A. V. Here others joined us who decided to be chrysalides before they were caterpillars, and we are anxiously waiting to see what kind of butter- flies they will make. We thus acquired a musi- cian from Colegrove, one whose " mother was Southern. " a Wisconsin artist, a Xel)raska produc- tion, and a clown. Also jjy special dispensation ol I ' rovidence, in response to our need, a nurse comes in occasionally to look after our welfare. In March we were old enough to have a parly where we enjoyed ourselves C|uite as much as any of our guests. Thus, through our own self-activity and the indulgente and fostering care of our be- loved Miss French and Miss Harrison down stairs, and the honored members of the Faculty above stairs, we hojje in time to grow into distinguished and venerable Senior R ' s.

There have been one ni two breaks in the chain and much credit shuuld he given to the energetic few. Our boys organized a li.ght. fast team and did some good work, winning a majority of the games played ; but the absence of school spirit and the non- support of the students have not given the boys a fair chance. The girls began their work in basket- ball early in the year. L ' nder the coaching of i Ir Kuehny and the active work of their captain, Juan- ita Carrigan. develojjed a very good team. After a few months ' practice, however, thev disbanded It is ho])e(l that they will again organize and show what ability the Xormal contains.

These, in many respects, are business men and women. They buy and sell, invest and iu.sure, bill and ship, deposit money and draw checks. They learn to be prompt, honest, reliable, wide-awake. They receive, handle, brief, file, execute and issue all kinds of commercial and l usiness paper, .such as notes, checks,, mortgages, insurance policies, telegrams, acceptances, statements, contracts, bills of lading, balance sheets, etc. They learn all the laws and rules pertaining to debts and credits. They learn and practice not only the theory and science of bookkeeping and accounting, but the art as well. To know is one thing, to do is another. They learn the science and art of .stenography and typewriting. They take dictation at the rate of lOO to 1 50 words a miiuite, and transcribe on the machine at the rate of 40 to 80 words a minute. The click of a large number of typewriting machines in the best equipped typewriting department in the West may be heard during the entire day. The management of the ' oodbury is not egoti.stic, but we know the work and worth of the school, and that the Woodbury training cannot be duplicated. There are hundreds of young people who are now con- templating attending a business school, and who will find a course of business training at the Woodbury the best investment that can po.ssibly be made.
