Fargo Librarian Mrs. Eleanor Jones -Issistant Librarian Miss Agnes Elliott, in whose menior}- these lines are written, lived among us not merely as an admired teacher but as a alued friend. Her sympathetic nature always soug ' ht out those who were in especial need of help and wdiile she was faithful to the claims of her particular work she found time for those " many little kindnesses which most leave undone or despise " . Because of her long- connection with tlie school first as a student, and afterwards as teacher, her high ideals impressed upon successive classes have become in a sense a permanent possession of the Normal School. No characteris- tic of this beautiful life was more marked than the intense in- terest, amounting to positive enthusiasm, which she showed in the various activities of the school. The intellectual work of her own classes was always valuable and interesting but she gave enthusiastic support to everything that advanced the well being of the student body at large. No social activity was ever planned without Miss Elliott ' s advice and assistance and no social gathering seemed complete without her presence. During the last year with us, though Miss Elliott was hardly able to perform her regular duties there was no abatement of her intense efiforts to make the Los Angeles Normal School a place of high intellectual standards, of social good cheer, and of moral earnestness. " Blessing she was. God made her so. " John Wasson, born August 20th. 1933, died January 16th, 1909. 0 ur State Normal School experienced a sad loss in the death of its Senior trustee and those connected with the school felt a personal bereavement when this kind and loya! friend was taken from them. Mr. Wasson, during his long life had filled many public offices of trust and in every community in wdiich he lived left the impress of his strong individuality. He was born in Wayne County, Ohio, but spent much of his life in the far Western States. Mr. W asson touched life at many points. He was at dif- ferent periods, teacher, miner, farmer, editor and surveyor. At the time of his death he was editor of the Pomona Times. His life was marked by its purity of purpose and untiring zeal in everv undertaking. f t " Gone on to meet us there When we, too, fall asleep: This soul so full of joy and cheer, Of- loving service, comfort dear. Whose waters flowed so deep. " We thank Thee, Father, for this life Raised far above the common strife ; And as we come confessing The memory of her life will ever be An inspiration and a blessing, A gleam of light to draw us nearer Thee.

Trainmg-School Jingles ... There is a teacher, Miss Meader, Here she comes with her little First Reader- With her pencils and chalk, And tall, stately walk. Just see how the children do heed her. Next comes that dignified dame, Mrs. Seckler, we all know by name, Her Standard is high — To reach it we sigh, This is her well known fame. Miss McKenzie, so gentle and kind, Her equal ' twould be hard to find. Every thing new She knows how to do. Indeed she has a wonderful mind. Here ' s to our friend Mrs. Preston, In order she ' sure is the best one. They mind ' tis true, She jollies them too. That ' s why we like Mrs. Preston. Miss Joy lives up to her name, You will always find her the same. She ' s a friend indeed. In all our need, To part from her all think a shame. Miss Woodbur} knows as much as a book On how teachers should teach, act and look, If we wished to advance. We knew this was our chance, So we " got there ' ' by hook or by crook. Miss Jensen has little to say. But that little goes a very long way. Calm to view But stanch and triew. We find her every day. Miss Mathewson the girls all adore. We ' ll never see her like any more. She never preaches. But the way she teaches ! Will give you pointers galore. And what shall we say of the chief, Miss Osgood. It is our belief You may search but not find One of her kind. For her virtues our space is too brief. 13 (Contributed by One of Its Members) The word facullv is dcTived from Lat. facultas, meanint - power or capa- eilv. This word is itself derived from facilis. easy. It is applied to groups of individuals known to possess an unusual capacity for " taking things easy. " This has no reference to personal property; it is simply intended to call atten- tion to the easy, careless, irresponsible mode of life of the faculty, — a perfectly natural consequence of having every whim anticipated and provided for at public expense. This last consideration connects the word faculty with Lat. facere, to make (the word monetam beuig implied). The foregoing evidence regarding the origin and fundamental conception of the facultv is supported by the derivation of the word school from Greek schole, leisure, a word exactly describing the chief characteristic of the in- stitution. The Romans called their schools ludi. plural of Indus, play, or sporL. Thus the term ludi-crous is still applied to anything pertaining to what is known as school " work. " Paleontological evidence derived from a most exhausting study of peda- gogic fossils tends to confirm the testimony of philology. The fossil faculty series, as it has been traced from the Azoic era through the Corniferous. the Glacial, and into the Epizootic, reveals the gradual atrophy and elimination of distinctively pedagogic organs, apparently through gradual disuse. To cite but one example from the mass of Archeological evidence. Egvptologists have definitely established the fact that the earliest Pharaohs were deified facultv members who lived in the height of splendor and power, enjoying untold revenue, and ruling their subjects with a rod of iron called a ferule or sceptre. The Sphinx is now known to be only a memorial statue commemorative of a well known species of student (not yet extinct) in the act of reciting. . facultv may therefore be defined as an organized body of social sponges or parasites engaged in the collection of enormous revenues at the expense of the state, while living in luxurious idleness, occupying public positions of immense power and infiuence, and occasionally interfering with the amuse- ments of a group of younger indi iduals collected in what is known as a school, or place of entertainment. The essential properties of the faculty are sufiiciently evident in the foregoing account of its origin. One of its chief functions in the school is so to direct and domineer over the amusement-courses of the students as to derive the fullest measure of personal gratification therefrom. For example, the faculty exacts excuses for delincjuences in attendance in order to satisfy its intense curiosity as to how the students spend their working hours when not engaged in the amuse- ments of the school. As an organism the faculty a])pears to be deeply gratified by anything 14 tliat excites its consciousness of its own beauty, digiiity ami jjower. Hence it delig ' hts to sit, either wliolly or in i)art. on an elevated scaffold, and either gaze superciliously above the heads of the insignificant students, or look in- tently into the distance or at the floor or ceiling as if absorbed in profound meditation. As individuals the faculty love to see the students jump in alarm when the desk is rapped for order. For this reason they encourage the unsuspect- ing students to grow careless about the bell signals, tliat this form of pleasure ma - be more frequently enjoyed. The principle of selfish pleasure also explains why the faculty require so many students, particularly the more handsome and timid among them, to take the amusement courses several times over. They particularly enjo} ' witnessing the tears of those who, because of nostalgia, or love of mere money, would prefer to relinquish the leisurely life of pleasure in the school; these they delight in tormenting and tyrannizing over. Strangely enough certain verbal formulae are especially pleasing to the facultv, though regarded by common persons as unpleasant. Among these forms the most pleasing are. " Ain ' t the faculty just too mean! " " The horrid things ! " and the like. An observer may often see members of the faculty tip-toeing about trying to overhear such expressions on the part of the stu- dents, and smiling in great glee if successful. On the other hand, what usually pleases merely common humanity simply bores the faculty. Any sort of commendation or praise is deeply offensive to it. It is generally believed by most careful investigators that this is in some way connected with the fact that the public generally refrain from expressing such sentiments. Being a super-rational organism the faculty is not governed by the rules that commonly obtain among mankind, and one should not depend upon any regular course in attempting to placate or conciliate it. Nlau}- careful in- vestigators have been puzzled in the attempt to apply psychological tests to the hvper-mental processes of the faculty. For example, a large number have tried to show that personal vanity is a leading characteristic, by the use of skillful flatterv just before the recording of the hieroglyphic symbols at the completion of the courses of entertainment, with a view to determine any eff ' ect that might be produced on the nature of the symbolic characters. But the results have been very discouraging for the most part. In fact, such evidence as there is tends to show that in this respect as in most others the faculty is quite unlike ordinary people. The clearest conclusion yet reached is that complete mental and moral perversity is the most constant faculty characteristic. 15 EDITORIAL STAFF Irene Clark, Athletics. Lena Evans, Organization.

These walls now look on our receding wave, That looked on many a passing wave before. And still shall stand to look, when we are gone, On manv surges more. So glide we from the shadow of their care Into the sunlit spaces, and are free To wander in a wider channel there. Upon our way to the Eternal Sea. And certain drops will carry children ' s toys. And certain will support the youth ' s canoe, AMiile others freight bold manhood ' s griefs and joys. Or bear the laden funeral barge from view. Although we wander in a wider way, Although as separate drops we seek the Sea, Still we are part of one, great, useful stream That bears life forward with a movement strong: Xot lonely, helpless drops : but with a song Of cheerful fellowship and many a gleam Of sunlight, half reflected through the spray Of wholesome tears, back toward its source, the Sun, We rejoice to know we still are One. The Class of 1909. — AVill R. Tanner. " Better far pursue a frivolous trade by serious means than a sublime art frivolously. " — Elizabeth Barrett Browning. In the multiplicity of daily ministrations teachers tend to forget them- selves. And on the whole this is well. It is both appropriate and wholesome that we should think mostly of the things our profession ofifers us to do. But let us for a moment reverse the inquiry and consider what our pro- fession may do with us. What are the recoil effects of our work? The (jues- tion is pertinent, for here, as in the physical world, reaction is equal to action. We not only shape our work, but our workk in a profound sense shapes us. The teacher stands where the tide flows forth and back again. The scientific doctrine of the conservation of energy is not better grounded than this doc- trine of the recoil influences of behavior. Concretely applied, the principle means that no man can escape from his work. If a man refuses to put life into the things he does, the death microbe will return space to canker his own heart. AA e may cease to teach, but we cannot abandon our profession. Its reaction upon us, for each day and week and month, will abide always in the lasting calendar of the soul. Every act contributes to the soul mansion, and in the aggregate our acts fashion it wide and stately, or narrow and humble. If we come to our work with slovenly preparation, then shoddy material goes into our own life. If we teach fallacies we not only mislead our pupils but we fasten our errors more tightly on our own minds. And we cannot thrive if we feed thus upon reinforced ignorance. But let it not be forgotten that the principle presents a twofold aspect. If it is terrible that the shame of our unconsecrated work is wrought into the very tissue of our personality, it is no less sublime that we cannot be de- prived of the glory of our real accomplishments. Fidelity is its own certain reward. It does not depend upon overt success. The meed of gold awarded us by a more or less appreciative public may or may not balance our faithful- ness to the trust. The eft ' ects wrought on a young life by a faithful teacher can never be placed on a ledger and made to read : " So many quantums of mental culture for so many dollars in money. " We are not hirelings and our meagre stipend is not wages. But though our accomplishments are incom- mensurable with any material rewards, the balance is fully struck by the re- coil effects, which always come in exact proportion to our spiritual devotion. Contrary to common opinion, our work, if properly pursued, favors growth. It can hardly be an accident that most great scholars have been great teachers and that so many statesmen, governors, congressmen, judges, and even presidents, have graduated from our ranks. The true teacher is in- 19 s]Mre(l b - the ])assi )n of a luiiiian mis i( n. He dreams, dreams and sees visions. Hut he has an outlet for his dreams and so should be saved from the Dead Sea of intellectual stagnation. And beine: a medium rather than merely an agent, he must have also an inlet. He must first get for himself what he would give to others. The cobbler may be himself poorly shod, the architect may live in humble quarters; but the teacher can give only what he himself possesses. Our work therefore involves a purely spiritual reciprocity. We use the material apparatus and methods prescribed and supplied but we never suc- ceed unless we march straight to the personal life. The lawyer must reach humanitv, if at all. through statutes ; the merchant through goods ; the builder through wood and stone : but the teacher works directly upon vitality itself. The history of art is adorned with many beautiful legends which relate, with varving detail, the miraculous bestowal of life upon an artist ' s creation. How many sculptors and ])ainters have longed in vain for this perfect appro- bation of the goods! IWit the legendary miracle of art is universally factual in the school. To the teacher-artist alone is it vouchsafed to look upon ma- terial that answers the look in kind: to speak to material that replies in kindred speech; to loev the material till it sometimes loves back again .

Why, can ' t you recognize the Summer ' 09 Class of the Los Angeles State Normal School? Ah, that smile is better. Of course I knew you would be delighted to see us. You say we are quite a large class? Don ' t you think that ' s putting it rather mild seeing that we are one hundred fifty- eight strong. What ' s that, the whole class is decidedly handsome? We — , ] Ir. World we don ' t want to hand ourselves the orchids so we ' ll let that pass with a modest bow. However, I ' m sure that you with your worldly wisdom will acknowledge that we have brains back of our attractiveness. Yes, sir, brains, 64 oz. of grey matter, brilliant intellects, clever talents, sparkling wit. ' hy I could mention half a dozen artists, as many musicians, not a few literary people and even several sufTragetts that you will hear of some day. Besides, there is left a vast number who will doubtless be educational lights, and in days to come Dr. Terman will be quoting ] Ir. Cookman instead of G. Stanley Hall ; Dr. Gesell will be referring his psychology classes to a book entitled " Matrimony " by J. lerle Smith, and the English teachers will read to their classes the article " Education in Relation to Blushing " from Tanner ' s Maga- zine for Socially Efficient Phrenologists. The only thing that seems destined to haunt this class is that many of the girls ' names are to meet oblivion. Perhaps leap year caused this blaze of solitaires, perhaps the youth and beauty of the solitaire owners were the causes. We seem destined to graduate with a merry jingle of wedding bells. Did I hear you say, " Change its name from Old ] Iaid Factory to Matrimonial Bureau? ' ' True, ] Ir. World, and I would not be able to conceal my chagrin at the appellation of Old Maid Factory if I did not realize how utterly in- applicable it is. If there were not this contradictory evidence. Old Maid Factory would be inappropriate insomuch as it suggests lack of good times, and we surely have had our allotted share of good times, ranging in character from our jolly parties to the harmonious color scheme in the gymnasium when we were Junior A ' s and wore loud stockings. But now we feel that we ' ve been sheltered long enough in that " Little old red school-house on the hill " . The time has passed when we hurried up the hill and into the office gasping, " Miss Dunn — I-I-I ' m 1-1-late ; " we have sung our last scale : dug our last garden ; cut our last class and having pre« sumably acquired that highest of all virtues defined by the much misused term social efficiency : we have written finis to our Normal School work. And now we have come to you, Mr. World. Yes, we have come and we expect you to roll over and give us and our ideas room to grow. If you do not give us room we are apt to take it, being accustomed to tak e every thing when we teach in the first grade, from chickenpox to mumps and even final exams. But no matter what a high position we may acquire in your heart, old Mr. World, it will never be said that the Summer ' 09 Class forgot its Alma Mater. Among our pleasantest recollections will be memories of classmates and teachers. You may be sure when we return to visit our Normal we will have the same cheer on our lips as when we left : — Three cheers for Los Angeles State Normal ! And a tiger for Summer ' 09. _jg „ Gillespie. Adams, Edith Ruth Adams, Elsie Alexander, Jean Geddes Alexander, Helen Andrews, Gladys Bailiff, Julia May- (A. B.) Baker, Helen Leona. (A. B.)

Cookman Florence Jackson Henrietta Valla Lillian Thielen Gladys Quinn 30 In the Clutch of the Bhzzard Conrad stood at tlie window, gazin_c; out at the shiftint wall of snow which had shut down with the night about his tiny shack. A half-hour be- fore he could plainly distinguish the low line of section shanties along the track. Now, however, an impenetrable whiteness isolated him from the little world of Klowe ' s Junction. For two years he had been switch-tender at the Junction, daily going through the humble round of his tasks, from shack t(j railroad tracks and back to the cabin again, with only occasional trips to the store and postofiice. He had no time to waste among the loungers at the Junction and no money to throw away at the saloon, for Conrad was a thrifty fellow and was saving all his dollars against the time when he could send for Minna. He was thinking of her now as he gazed unseeingly into the fury of the blizzard. He was no longer conscious of the cold January night, for he was back in the sunny Rhineland, a boy again, chasing Minna through the vine- yards and cornfields. He could see the yellow braids flying in the breeze and the dancing blue eyes that flashed back teasing glances at him, and fresh in his mind was the memory of that great day when he had answered the chal- lenge in those eyes with the first kiss! And then the summer evenings: when, older grown, they wandered silently along the hill strasse hand in hand. It was on one of those nights in June that they had sat on the bench under the old linden tree and had made their plans for the future. So Conrad had come to America, the land of promised fortune. Now the third year of toil was drawing to a close and in the springtime he could send for Minna. How he had waited and worked for her through the scorching summers and pitiless winters of the plains ! How he had skimped and saved till the little hoard had grown under his hand, so that now with the ' Slay, she would come to gladden his lonely home. A long, dismal howl broke in upon his reverie and he turned to see his dog, a great Dane, pacing nervously back and forfh across the narrow room Plainly something was disturbing the animal for now and then he trembled violently, and there was something ominous in the wailing note he uttered. Conrad quieted him with a word and stepped to the door to look out. A stinging gust of wind almost swept him oflf his feet, and the snow swirled past him. ghostly and chill. " Ach ! What a nig ' ht to be out in ! " he muttered, as with difficulty he pushed the door into place and hastened to pre])are his simple supper. The dog refused to eat, but Conrad made an excellent meal of bacon and cornbread, with black coffee and a slice of Dutch cheese. He glanced up at the big silver watch that hung on a nail by his bunk. Six-thirty ! In an hour the fast express from Chicago would pass the Overland Limited at the Junc- tion. How fortunate that he had opened the switch before dark ! He had considerable spare time now that they were running only two trains a day. Just this afternoon as he was going down to the tracks, Barney Irwin had twitted him with being a man of leisure, and had made his stop for a game of cards and a mug of beer with him. He liked the jolly Irishman and often spent an evening at his shanty, absorbed in the fortunes of " pinocle " or " 45 " . 31 It liatl lieen dusk hcfnre he left Harney ' s toni- lit, and the stnrni. wliich now s ve])t furiously around the corners of the cabin, had only begun. How glad he felt, that he was safe and sheltered and warm. Then like a Hash came a thought that made him catch his breath in a (|uick gas]). He had been on the way down to the switch when Barney had hailed him. and he had come straight home from Barney ' s shack! He had completely forgotten the switch! It was closed now, and in less than an hour the trains would come rushing at each other out of the storm, carrying with them their innocent burden of humanity! With startled realization Conrad leaped to his feet, the cold sweat break- ing out on his brow. He hurried into his long boots and his great-coat, pulled a woolen cap down over his ears, and wound a thick muffler round his neck. Quickly lighting his lantern, he was ready to set out immediately and remedy his carelessness. Then came the thought of the night and the storm. I ' he blizzard had been increasing in force and now shook the tiny cabin on its stone founda- tions. To go out into it meant almost certain death. Eyen if he should ven- ture, who could tell if he should eyer reach the tracks? He knew not even if the trains would go through tonight for there was likelihood of wrecks all along the line. Xo blame would fall on him if an accident should occur. Yet something told him that he must make the attem])t ; there lay his dtity. He hesitated no longer, but with firm step finished his ])reparations for his trip. There was no time to lose for it was already se en o ' clock. Hastily lie set the lamp high on the window ledge, felt in his pocket for his switch key and. taking up his lantern, hurried out of the house, the great Dane close ' be- side him. The faithful clog was his constant companion and now pushed ahead through the drifts breaking out a path for the man. ButTeted by the wind, and blinded by the seething sea of snow. Conrad was almost powerless in the grip of a storm the like of which he had never experienced. He would not have known where to turn his steps but for the dog wdio instinctiveh ' took the right direction. It was not in vain that for wrecks and months past he had made the daily trips with his master. Now he led the wa}- and the man followed, lifting with feverish h.aste the feet that sank at every step into the soft, wet snow. The continuous swirl of the flakes made him dizzy, and it was only with infinite difficulty that he at length reached the tracks. By the dim rays from the lantern he found the semaphore and with stiiT. numb tingers opened the ice-bound switch. The dog gave a short, jovial bark as they turned homeward, and both started forward with renewed energy. But Conrad was tired. The expos- ure was telling on him. and he knew the dangers of the storm to a stronger man than he. He j lodded en in the dog ' s track with head bent and body straining forward. The snow was frozen on his cap, on his lashes, and his beard; he was icy cold and he no longer had the feverish zeal which kept him up on the first part of his journey. Tiie wind had gathered force, and now swept the storm in furious blasts against him. Once he grew dizzy and half fell, but the dog jndled him up and he hastened on. possessed with tlic nameless terror of the nig-ht. He had broken his lantern in the fall, and so had lost its comfort and help. The way was now becoming- more difficult, for a slii dit crust had formed on the snow and Conrad broke through at every step. He stumbled and fell against a drift of soft snow, but the dog- was again at his side, dragging- him on and on. For some time they travelled thus, the man ever faltering , the dog ever at his side helping him on. Conrad no longer felt cold, only tired, oh so tired. At last, he sank into the snow, conscious of not hing save the desire for rest. His eyes closed and the fury of wind and storm alike raged unheeded, for Conrad was back in Germany, asleep on the grassy hill- side, and as he slept he dreamed of an angel, yellow-haired and blue-eyed, who floated down to him on soft white wings and, lifting him in her arms, bore him gently upward to the fleecy clouds resting peacefully on the soft, warm bosom of the summer sky. The dog had been making repeated efforts to rouse his master; he dragged at his garments with his teeth, he uttered short, worried barks and ran round and round the silent figure, but all in vain. There was no answer- ing stir from the quiet sleeper. For a moment the great Dane stood still ; then with a low howl of agony, he sank in the snow, on guard at the feet of the man he served. Faintly above the sobbing of the wind came the long-drawn wail of the Overland, and a moment later the answering whistle of the fast express. Safe within the warm, well-lighted coaches slept four score and more of travellers who knew not that out there in the open, the soft flakes of the snow had spread a pure and beautiful shroud over the silent forms of a man and a dog.

The idea of treating a Senior and a junior — like mere Freshmen! What were Freshmen o ood for. anvway. but to be shoved around from pillar to ])ost till their rooms should l)e papered, but when this happened to L ' pperclassmen — it was an insult ! " ess. siree. an insult! " asserted ni}- Senior room-mate ai ain. Mar- guerite e er waxed dramatic when annoyed. It was an art she had delib- erately mastered two years before, to o er-awc the h ' reshmen. She glowered now at the chandelier, in lieu of our tiesh-and-blood matron, and gave vent to her feelings in si)eech and gesture that would ha e done credit to Caesar crossing the Rubicon. ' " It ' s no use to talk, " I put in mildly when she ])aused for breath ( 1 was accustomed to Marguerite ' s storms). " This is W ' ednesdav night and we ' ll only have to stay down here a night or two longer. Let ' s go up and look at the place. " We bounded up the two flights of stairs, and groping our way into dark old number twenty-one. turned on the light and surveyed the scene. Indeed it was a joyous sight — the furniture huddled disconsolatelv in one corner, the long bench with strij)s of wall-paper laid out on it. the l:)ig ])ail of ]:)aste, brushes strewn helter-skelter. " Yes. you see, " I went on, " there ' ll be only three, four — 1 su])pose, live more strips on this side, and then across that end. It oughtn ' t to take him long. And he has everything here handy " I stopped short, and looked at larguerite. Marguerite looked at me. Then we grabbed each other and danced around the room — two minds with but a single thought. In a moment we had closed the door and locked it with a chair-1)ack. Then to work! bursting with laughter, which we tried vainly to supi)ress, we slapped on the paste. And this was the most fun of all — it was S( slippery, and made such a wet succulent sound as we flapped the brush along. Then we carefullv folded up the strips and climbed the step-ladder. ' e took turns at this deliciously dangerous process, shaking so with delight that half the paste was always wiped off on our clothes. " Listen ! " Marguerite suddenly cried, when 1 had jusi reached the top- most step. " Come oft " , quick. Somebody ' s coming! " I scrambled down. wdiisked oft " the light, and we slid quickly under the bed pushed up into the corner. A silken swish grew louder as it came down the hall toward us. No, the silken swish was ever like that one. It had a peculiar, aggresive sound all its own. As the rustle stopped in front of our door we stuft ' ed our skirts into our mouths and nearly suft ' ocated before we heard it pass on down the hall. ■ ' Tt ' s all right. Come out, Marg., it ' s your turn. " The good work con- tinued for an hour or more when the " 10:L=; wink " of the lights interrupted 35 us. For the public benefactors we claimed to be, we were surprisingly anx- ious that our good deeds should not be detected. We flew down-stairs to our temporary abode, and inside of five minutes were sleeping the sweet sleep of the virtuous. " Just seven minutes before the dining-room door ' ll be locked. Funny how nobody but home-folks realize how much sleep a growing child needs, " growled Marg. the next morning, jabbing in ])ins with a directness gained of three years ' experience. And snatching my belt, we hurried out the door, and down the dining-room steps, three at a time. A buzz of voices gretted our ears as we entered, but this was hushed immediately as the girls saw us. ' " Made it again — little closer call this time. Good-afternoon, people, " said ! Iarg. cheerily, " ' ell, I say, what ' s the matter with you all? Don ' t let us interrupt any choice bit of scandal you may have been enjoying. " The girls smiled and looked at each other questioningly. " Go on, tell them, Betty, " begged a little Sophomore, of an esteemed Senior friend of ours. " Aliss said to. Go on, please. " " Shall I, folks? All right, " assented Betty. " AA ' ell, you know- 3 Iiss ate breakfast with us this morning, and if you two had heard the rhapsody she indulged in over you. you ' d be too uppity to live wdth for months. She said you set such good examples for these fledglings to follow — or words to that efifect — and that you had a thousand opportunities to sort of rip things up and have a jolly good time, but no, you bethought you of our young here, and behaved like ladies. " Alarg. and I sat with chilled hearts and feverish cheeks. Was this fine sarcasm ? I was dully trying to remember whether or not I had pasted that last strip on right side up. " Yes, siree, she just more than plastered it on " " Plastered? said Marg. involuntarily. " Plastered what? " " Why, spread it on thick, you know. And now here ' s the rew ard of long-sufTering virtue. You ' ll no longer have to live with that salmon-pink wall-paper because she ' s going to give you that front room down-stairs — • the visiting celebrities have always had, and moreover you can go down and choose your own wall-paper today if you want it changed. She ' s going to give your old room to the Freshmen. You know she was away all yesterday and she says those paper-hangers did the worst piece of work she ever saw. She ' s going to make them do it over again. Well — " after a pause, " aren ' t you tickled to pieces? " " Grand, " I murmured. " Dandy of ] Iiss , " added Alarg. " Don ' t bother to wait for us, girls, if you want to go. We came down late, you know. " In a moment the girls were all gone. Some time passed in silence. " Well? " said Marg. looking at me with a soggy expression. " There ' s just one thing to do of course, Marguerite, and that ' s — ' fess up, and end our days in Twenty-one where we began them. " " You ' re right, " agreed Alarg. " And say, the next time we want prac- tical lessons in any trade, let ' s apprentice ourselves somewhere ofT the Campus. " — E. H.

It was the deep peaceful, refreshing sleep that just |)rece(les the dawn, and is closest akin to the sleep everlastino-. Slowly, behind the deep green of the silent forest, there appeared a tin.t of pearl, accompanied by a shade of rose, so delicate that it seemed as if it were stolen from the innermost surface of a sea-shell. Afvsteriously the colors grew deeper, tiien suddenly vanished as the sun burst froiii behind the distant mountains, bringing with him a rare spring day. The landscape changed into a sea of gold, and through the vast expanse of dazzling bright- ness wound a great silver stream. The world awoke from its flreams ; the little breezes from snow-ca])ped Mount Hood murmured softly through the tall trees, and the birds poured out their souls in a perfect deluge of song, and the mightv Columbia, lapping the feet of the majestic snow-clad mountains and its towering cliffs, rushed joyously toward the sea. Presentl} ' there floated down the river a light canoe, hewn from tlie trunk of a fir tree, and carrying two shining brown figures. The one seated in the stern, and guiding the bark with a single paddle, was that of an Indian of perhaps forty years. The other was the figure of a lad of not more than twelve summers, who idly dragged his hand in the cool waters, and gazed first at the mountains in front of him. then at the forest on either side of the river. At a word from his kinsman he plied his paddle vigorouslv for a few moments, then again la])sed into a revery, and the paddle forgot to move — through his young brain passed a train of ne -er ending thoughts. The riA ' er was as blue as the cloudless sky; the water-falls leaped and splashed in the sunshine, and nature was bubbling with the joy of living, but the heart of the Redman responded no more than if it were a heart of Hint. L nspeakable grief had taken possession of his soul ; grief that was bitter, cruel, harsh utterly void of hope, — the unutterable sorrow that comes to one whose will refuses to bend to the All Ruling Power. Sorrow rested heavily on the shoulders of the lad also, but it was a different sorrow from that of the older man. The one was the grief of mature years; the other was the grief of youth, that is just as great, but is mingled with less of bitterness. To the boy the song of the birds was still beautiful, and his youthful spirit could not be depressed, but to the man the song was cruel mockery. So the bark lloated silently on ; then came another and another, until the eye was weary with counting them, each containing two figures, and all so overcome with grief that it seemed as if the creatures in the forest were dis- heartened, and the song of the birds was less joyous. Last came a single canoe, gay with its gorgeous coloring, but in truth. the saddest craft that ever floated down the river. It contained the body of the chieftain. wrap])ed in the slee]i from which he would ne ' er waken 38 Dcatii had snatched him away from the Chiiiooks, and had left a place not only in their hearts, hut in their lives, that C(ndd not he filled. So the sorrowful funeral ])rocession moved on in a lon , winding- train down the ri er. and as the last canoe disajipeared aroun l the hend. nature seemed to hreathe a. ain. and the creatures rejoiced with her. The joyless train has passed over her heart, like a cloud over the face of the sun. In the midst of the vast waters of the Columbia, ever rushing toward the sea, lies a huge brown rock: — dark, barren, utterly desolate, more drearv than a desert waste. In summer or winter, rain or sunshine, it is ever the picture of absolute desolation, and around it the waters have swirled for centuries. On this sunburnt, isolated bed of stone was laid the body of the chieftain, the Hiawatha of his tribe. Xew moons grew old and many autmnns changed to winters. As the years passed the grief that was so bitter changed into sorrow, and finally melted away altogether, but the chieftain was not for- gotten. His name was spoken with reverence and not w ithout a certain awe among his descendants. From generation to generation the beloved heroes of the tribe were laid beside him to rest in everlasting sleep. As the storv of the Chieftain was passed on from father to son. it grew, as stories will grow, and gradually the island became clothed in mystery. A superstition took root in the soil of rumor and grew so rapidly that it became a ijart of e -cry Indian nature. Time j assed. and the superstition changed into a reverential fear of desecrating the Rock and disturbing the dead was as far removed from the thoughts of the tribe as the stars, when thev peeped through the fir trees on a winter ' s night. Thus did Memaloose Island become the sacred burying ground of tlie dead, and today it is protected by the government of the United States. An Indian agent was collecting curios. The whitened bones on ] fema- loose had a strange fascination for him. Daily this fascination grew, like an evil thought, till it surpassed even his respect for the laws of his own country, and conquered by his great desire, he determined to claim as his own a few souvenir bones. Secreth ' he obtained a light canoe, and at dusk he rowed cautiously out to the gloomy, melancholy rock. Just he sprang from the canoe to the smooth hard surface, a river steamer gave its long low whistle. Almost paralyzed with fear, and terrified at the grewsomeness of the situation, the agent started for the canoe, then turned back, snached a wdiite bone, and jumped into the frail bark. The canoe twisted and turned, then like a thing possessed, danced off down stream, heedless of a guiding hand. The steamer wdiistled again: the agent trembled, and the canoe, trustmg to the depth of the water, rather than its own swiftness to conceal its master, after a few graceful manoeuvers overurned, and, empty, floated away like an autmnn leaf, l-lven the canoe respected the bones of the sacred dead. Thus resulted the one effort of mankind to disturb the repose of the Chieftain and his comrades. Watched over by sun, moon, and stars, fanned by breezes laden with the breath of the pine trees, the Chieftain and his people repose in the everlasting sleep of peace, on the hard bed of Mema- loose, around which the mighty waters of the Columbia still swirl and moan, then rush onward to the sea. Regina. 39 BUDD, THE CAT The history of Budd ' s infancy was not known, but on a certain fateful morning when he was about six months old he arrived on the back steps of the Xixon mansion. His history from that time forward was identical with that of the family. In fact the family history was the history of Budd. He commenced making history within a half hour after his arrival. As he was sitting on the steps me-owing plaintively, the cook opened the door to drive him away, but, instead of running, a certain perverseness and general foolishness of his nature impelled him to make a rush for the open door. The cook fell over him. dropped a pot of hot coffee she had in her hand and was in such a bad humor consecjuently that within an hour she had quarreled Avith her mistress and been discharged. Budd ' s next achenture was with Harold, the six year old Xixon hopeful. Harold was riding his wheel in the backyard and Budd, taking a notion to cross the path at the same time the wheel was passing, caught his head in the spokes, made a rapid circle in the air. and landed on the ground (simul- taneously with Harold). Xeedless to say Budd escaped injure but Harold ' s arm was broken. This cost the family fifty dollars in doctor ' s bills. At this time Budd had been a member of the family t vo weeks. At the end of a month the family had become accustomed to awaiting to see what Budd would do next. They felt that they could not kill him as he was evi- dently possessed of a spirit. The fear of bringing calamity on others, pre- vented their giving him away. Added to Budd ' s unique qualities w-as a total ignorance of the laws of nature or else an utter disregard for them. Budd ' s enemies considered that he was outside the pale of the law. But, however it was, it was always the other fellow and not Budd who sufifered. And then, too, Budd did not seem to regard the quality of things. But, anyway, when a cat is in a hurry can he be expected to recognize the difference between a pane of clean glass and atmosphere? And also was it his fault tha-t immediately after he had made his passage through the pane of glass that he should meet the gardener? It came about in this way. The servant in setting the table for lunch, had removed a right new piece of sticky fly-paper and placed it on an unused chair. At lunch time the family had just seated themselves when Budd, feeling perhaps the im- pulse of some hazy law of uniformity or imitation, jumped up on the pre- viously mentioned vacant chair. AMiat happened next happened in too short a space of time for any member of the family to be able to grasp the details, but there was a cat cry of terror, a lightnmg-like stamping executed with great energy, and a flash of cat and fly-paper through the air. Budd disappeared through the window, leaving the fly-paper behind him stuck to the splintered glass. From outside came a cry of alarm and a thud. When the family reached the window Budd had gone, but the gardener sat on the walk below cursing cats so industriously that he forgot to get up until Mr. Nixon called to ask him if he was hurt. A little later Harold discovered Budd licking his ])aws, and, except that his fur was somewhat 40 disheveled, he looked quite the same as ever. The grardener, Avho had a su- perstitious fear of Budd, gave notice that afternoon stating he " wouldn ' t stay in no place where they kept a devil-cat. " Finally a friend, although also unwilling to take the responsibility of killing Budd, considered it high time to rescue the family, — surreptitiously captured him intending to take him the next day to a town twenty miles distant. He did so and was conscious stricken a few months later on read- ing under the local news of the town the following heading, — " Separation of a Couple Married Twenty Years Brought About by a Cat. " He could not doubt that Budd was the " Cat. " K. S. Beck.

I am doing my first ])ractice teaching in the eighth grade, and oh. it is tough. Last week, the twenty-fifth, the Faculty reception to the school came off. A crowd came, all dressed in their newest and he t. Last year I hapjjened to have another date and so the reception had to scramble along without me. But I heard that each teacher had a rug to himself and there he stood for the entire evening. Dr. Millspaugh holding the fort at the first island. But this year things were not a bit stiff. The teachers put on white aprons and waited on us. actuall} ' ! I don ' t suppose our class (Senior C. if you ])k ' ase) will have any functions for a while. We are all too busy. Your De ()ted. TWEEDLEDEE. N ' ov. 5th. 1908. Hello Tweedle : Did I tell you in my last letter about the Y. W. C. A. reception to the new girls? The bridge was packed. I should judge about two hundred ])eople were there. They talked in a sort of sleepy way about " That first day. " and " Getting settled, " until our dear Dr. Terman woke us up by a little talk; — ' A ' hat " s in a name. " Then Mr. Miller gave an instrumental solo, and Miss Seaman a reading. We gave the new girls a good time. A Hallowe ' en Partv was given by the Y. ' . ' s on the Ikidge. Oct. 28t!i. the girls must have worked awfully hard scooping out the pumpkins with which thev decorated. They tried all the customary Hallowe ' en charms of which nobody ever gets tired. ' e had a simply glorious time. And now for that other party I promised to tell you about. The Sr. . ' s gave it at Camille Grifiin ' s. and I happened to go because one of the Senior A ' s needed me for protection. It was a good thing we went early for it took just fifteen minutes by the village clock to get past the numerous weird per- sonages who greeted all comers with sejndchral howls and soapy hand-shake- . The pass word was " Halls Youth! " Would you believe it. Addie Larkins got mad and sat on the steps five minutes simply because she wouldn ' t give some sort of answer to the foolish ghost. At the witching hour of twelve, the lights were turnde out and someone told a most blood-curdling ghost storv. which wound up by saying that all the poor ghost wanted was a valid excuse from Miss Dunn! One dav last week, the Y. W. Girls gave a musical reception in the Kindero-arten to the Sr. A ' s. As the papers say. " College pennants and bou- cjuets formed fitting decorations. " And. oh yes. they really served whipped cream with the chocolate ! Yours till the End. TWEEDLEDEE. 47 Dec. 15th. My Dear Tweedledu m : You remember me tellinq; you of our dear ]Mis.s AX ' ood? Well. Dau Cupid has visited her. and why not? Certain!}- he could not have found a sweeter subject. Nov. 18th. the Y. V. C. A. entertained for her. She sat under the wedding- bell of red flowers a scomfortably as if she had practised it all her life. I wonder who will be next to go. It is whispered that Mrs. Patton will be leaving us next, but I haven ' t any inside information. I think it was somewhere around Xov. 24th that the Junior A class really woke u]) a little and gave a dancing party. I guess they had a pretty good time, iudging from reports. Of course they claimed that they had more boys than anv class had been able to gather for ages, but then, nobody pretends to believe it. Mr. Major put on the finishing touches to their party by turning out the lights during the last dance. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you of the " ' Six Cups of Chocolate, " a farce given one morning in Assembly. The cast was made up of members of ] Iiss Os- den ' s dramatic club. Geraldine Fitzgerald starred as the little French Miss. Oh me, how time flies ! Sincerely Yours, T . Feb. lOth. 1909. Dearest Pal : Your last letter was packed full of fun and good times, but you need not think we Xormalites can ' t have fun ! School spirit ! Why it would have paid you to come out west just to be at our Capitola Luncheon! So far, it is the greatest success of the year ; a lot of real enthusiasm was worked up. Of course our class had the most striking decorations as well as the largest crowd and the greatest volume of noise when it came to yells. But w ' hat else could you expect wdien I tell you lary Karnahan was our yell leader ! About one hundred red Japanese lanterns are pretty effective for decorations. By referring to my little book, I see that Capitola Day fell on Feb. 13th. The next thing in order was the " What Xext? " spread. Everybody had a stunt, and they were told what it was by a slip of paper found inside a walnut shell. So much for this time. Good Xight from, TWEEDLEDEE. Feb. 17th, 1909. Dearest Tweedledum : Your letters are the one oasis in my desert, but your questions rather stun me. It seems impossible to describe " College Jinks. " But for what is all my Xormal trail ing if it has not taught me to put forth effort and ac- complish the impossibl- . Remembering you ire studying Billy Snakes, I will divide the aft ' air into 48 five acts. But first one must i et into the atmosphere, " into harmony with one ' s surrounding ' s. " as Air. Miller would sav. For days the excitement was high. The tickets sold like hot cakes. At last the eventful day dawned clear and fair. The setting; of this modern classic was the gymnasium, appropriately decorated with college pennants. The hall was filled with a vast and eager throngs of femininity, whose delight was all the keener, being mixed with a certain degree of wonder at the strang-eness of it all. Loud applause broke forth when the clown spieler, with the aid of a megaphone, announced the first act. Act I. Opretta Des Mutes. ' ith bated breath we listened dundifounded. not a discordant sound. The entire opera was characterized by unity of purpose, seldom found. The most remarkable thing about it was its golden silence. Scene II. The Double Jointed Dancers. In this act, four charming damsels in evening dress accompanied bv four non-descript creatures, made the ' irginia Reel truly wonderful. In and out through the fiures they flitted, bowing and bending i " mystifying manner. They always bowed backwards. This idea probablv originated years ago, in Chinese schools, where everything w as done so. Act II. The Occidental Trick Rider. It was a wonderful display of human skill in riding a miniature velocipede. The equestrienne was arrayed in a marvelous yellow ballet costume and succeeded in imitating most accurately the first class professionals. The tight rope, wdiich reposed comfortably upon the floor, was walked and ridden in a most daring manner. After performing many perilous feats, the fair perform- er retired, covering herself with laurels. Scene II. The Reveries of a IJachelor. Ah me! To think of a bachelor around this place! And a er}- inter- esting past he had, too. First there was the bashful school aft ' air. Xumber two. the Athletic Girl, " Big C. " and all. Another woman in the case was the Swimming- Girl, and Gee! but she looked stunning! Even the fluflFy Summer Girl and the stately college queen failed to arouse him. Then the piano thundered. " Of course vou ' re onlv dreaming. Blow the smoke away. " Act III. The Humanophone. Eight little dunce caps sleeping in a row. Handsome drum major makes ' em all go : A ' inds with a crank, taps with a stick. Up bobs each head and does its little trick. Act IV. Mile. .Mosquito read that classic, " The X ' illage Blacksmith. " The Cabbage Chicken Fight. Act ' . " Stick in the Mud Quartet " was a pii)pin. Snider ' s Band was espeicallv good. For an expert ' s opinion we refer you to Aliss Hagan. wdio with " her friend " arrived at a critical m - ment. There was some class to the jigging of Snow hite Lilly and Lovely 49 Lucinda. and to their sinfj ing of a charming ditty — a la Hartnian — entitled. " Ain ' t it funnv what a difference what a lot of knowledo;e makes? " The whole was a howlino- success. (Miss Seaman would say. " What strange tongue is this 1 hear? " ) just before closing the treasurer, Miss ' I ' hornton. presented a purse of thirty-five dollars to the Y. V. C. A. as the college girls ' gift to that association. February 21st, 1909. Dear Old Girl: 1 just received " -our last epistle, and here T go again. " ou know I love to write letters. Did I tell -ou about our last dance? We had scads of fun, but 1 guess the girl wdiose dress was stepped on by a certain young Prof, didn ' t like it verv well. We intended to have a combination dance and part}-, and spent wearv hours preparing ga mes of all kinds, but all who came insisted on dancing. The music was exceptionally good, not so the floor. Last Monday morning in Chapel. Henry George, of the George Junior Republic, spoke to us. Did you ever hear him? X ow, if all the speakers who come up here w-ere as good, there would be no temptation to cut Chapel. lint really, we have had some verv notable people, Catherine Jewell Everetts, Hanford and Miss Dluett, being among the celebrities. It is rumored that we are to have another Nature Day in the Arroyo. That is just what I w ' ant for my graduating dress needs a few finishing touches, ' oe is me, the term is drawing to a close and mv note books are not yet full. Last week the departing Senior A ' s had a supper in the kitchen, and general frolic in the Gym. afterw ' ard. They stayed till the unseeiulv hour of ni ne! We hope to have one before we graduate. Well, must close for this time. T. March 8th, 1909. My Dear Dum. : Vou know I wrote you that Dr. Gesell was married and that his victim was Mrs. Patton. W ell. the day after he was hitched a bunch of us deco- rated their chairs before Chapel. Red and white crepe paper, red hearts, and a big bouquet of orange blossoms were so placed that the dear Doctor had to pick them up before taking his seat. He looked " cute " to five hundred giggling girls. 1 never heard a more halting speech than the one he favored us with. (Jn March 5th, we gave the Sr. A ' s a grand reception and dance. Xow you know I don ' t spend much time describing decorations, but pepper boughs and yellow acacia flowers are perfectly stunning, to say the least. Try it. I should judge that about two hundred and fifty people were pres- ent. Dr. and Mrs. Gesell were there in their wedding finery. P)efore the 50 dance a prog rani was _ jiven. Sue Field read ; then there was vocal and instru- mental music. 1 wish I had an extra program to send you, they were works of art, green and white, with the Normal monogram in gold. Loads of love from, TWEEDLKI EK. March 14th. 1909. Dear Tweedledum : At last the minstrel show has come and gone. It was GREAT I The High Jinks had proved to the school that we had plenty of firstclass talent, so we decided to dig down to lower strata, or get " second wind, " as James puts it. So a bunch of leading spirits got together and here was born the Xormal School ] Iinstrel Show, the Greatest Extravaganza of the Century. (And b} ' the w ay, Mary Karnahan and Geraldine dreamed of just this thing last year when we were Juniors, " so green dat de cows follored us up de steps. " ) After three weeks of strenuous practicing, the school ' s curiosity being then at wdiite heat, the eventful moment arrived. Promptly at three o ' clock thirty-six darkies cake-walked in and scrambled onto their seats. The mem- bers of the chorus wore black dresses with white collars covered with red polka dots. The four end men had ridiculous costumes, parts of which were borrowed from their numerous men friends. You would have howled to see Gid ' s pet green hat perched on her bobbing head. I guess I didn ' t mention the fact that we all w ' ore wolly black w ' igs. (P still have a life sized picture of Gladys Andrews chasing around after those wdgs). When all were seated Sue Ott, as Miss Reference, marched in to the strains of the wedding march. Dressed in cap and gown and carrying a read- mg glass and reference book, she was far above the " herd. " as the inter- locutor should be. She charmed us with her song, " Emmaline. " The " end ladies " were perfectly keen. Sue Field as Gee Stanle} ' Hall and Mable Luther as Observation Sal. ably held down the left end of the circle, while Mary Karnahan as Pedagogyeta and Geraldine Fitzgerald as Psychology Sue were third and fourth men " respectably. " Marv told delectable tales of chickens and watermelons which made the mouths of her darky friends H.20. She quite scandalized the circle by bringing in a real live chicken. Sister Hanifan received a veritable shower of peanuts and lemons and a beautiful vegetable bouquet at the end of her slam at the Senior A ' s. Freda Coward and Florence Wright Sang, " Oh You Coon. " so that it ran in everybody ' s head for days afterwards. Miss Emery did some won- derful clog dancing and the jigging of Lucy Howe and Lillian Thielan was classy. The Senior A ' s. especially P rant. W ' einstein and Addie Larkin were bawled out proper. Other specialties w ere almost without number. Mable Luther, famous as a star-gazer, did a couple of song and dance turns. Gee Stanley Hall made several hits, most striking of which was her music lesson. Sue had every 51 one of Miss Hagan ' s characteristic si)eeches clown and she iicld the andience for ti e minutes in a continuous uj roar. r.ut the final number, the mighty effort of Gid ' s life, was the Auction. One beautv of this feature was that it was not only spontaneous but entirely impromptu, . uch objects of priceless worth as Dr. Gesell ' s old hat. the one he used to wear before he was married : excuses, rubbish turned into the Exi)onent. and lemons were knocked down with the most delicious sar- casm. We thoug-ht we never should get the black and red paint oft ' . But the fun was worth all inconveniences, and nobody enjoyed the show more than the darkies themselves.

Good }iIorning, Mr. Teddy Bear. I ' m glad to see you ! " You know it ' s such fun to have a really truly Teddy Bear come to see me. Last week two French Dolls visited the Kindergarten, but thev were too dressed up to sit on the window-sill and talk with me. a plain rag doll. And that reminds me. just because I am a rag doll they think I can ' t hear and see all that goes on down here. They ' re all mistaken, but don ' t you let them know I told you so. as I ' d never be allowed in the circle again. I was dreadfully scared of ail those Junior C. 5. girls in the Fall, but I soon found they were really scared of me — think of that! Afraid of a rap, doll! Alaybe it was my name that frightened them — [Margaret O ' Donoghue is an impressive name for so small a creature as I. but oh! how the children love it. Have you never visited a Kindergarten before. Mr. Teddy Bear? Then you don ' t know what funwe have! I like the circle best of all where we sing and play, and hear about how Hour is made, and lots of other things like that. Then after Circle comes w hat they call a ' " (iift Lesson " . I never did see where it got its name, because nobody gives anyone else a present. — all they do is to pile up funny little wooden blocks, just to knock them down and start all over again. A long time ago Somebody named F-r-o-e b-e-1 — I never could pronounce that name. — started it. so they ' ve played with Gifts ever since. Xow when I start teaching next year — . wdiy hadn ' t you heard that I am tak- ing the Training Course? Shh ! don ' t tell anyone — but that ' s another story. X ow I am going to tell you about the Juniors and Seniors down here, for if vou stiv this morning you ' ll see for yourself what the children do. One dav I had been having such a glorious na]) at noontime, way up there on that high shelf, when crash! Something fell down, waking me with such a start that I almost fell down myself. Guess what ! There were sixteen Seniors sitting in those tinv chairs at the little tables, playing with those Gift blocks! Thev said they had made boats, engines, chairs, houses, soldiers, but all I could see was a lot of blocks. I dozed off soon, only to be awakened by a dog fight right in the Kinder- garten. I looked all around, but not a dog in sight ; so I settled myself for 59 aimtlKT na]), when 1 heard the dogs again, and also a rooster crowing lustily. ( )nce when 1 lived at " ' The Droadway " , before my kindergarten days. I had heard of peo|)le " seeing- things " , hut earing; weird noises was a new experience to me. Determined to see what was going on. I deliberately fell off the shelf into right into the middle of the Hoor where 1 saw — neither dogs nor a rooster but — Shades of the rag-bag! two g-irls ' dogs barking at a girl rooster in the middle of an admiring circle of more girls. That ' s all I saw that days for a swift hand lifted me (juietly but firmly from my seat in the Orchestra Circle, and ])ut me back in " Xigger Heaven " , in a dark corner, too! As 1 said before. I really enjoy a na]) at noon, for then I a. v wide awake by one o ' clock and ready for the afternoon fun : l)ut there are times when sleep is impossible. One flay the piano grinds out " Jolly is the Miller " as if it were a funeral march, then the next day some sad voice wails a Spring Song ! Music is a swet but solemn thing in a Kindergarten ! I could tell you of the smiles over " A " papers; the tears over " Deficiency Slips " : the ways that the tardy teachers try to pretend they reached here at eighi thirty ; I could tell you of the hurrying and scurrying when the rumor has it that iss French will visit " East Ninth " of " South Pasadena " the next day — by .Mr. Teddy Rear!

The recital was given by Miss Margaret Goetz, who was accompanied by Mrs. Leslie Harris. At several different times during the year. Miss Blewett has given to the students, delightful descriptive talks on Grieg " and the Xorse Music, and on MacDowell and American music. These talks have been illustrated by vocal and instrumental selections. In November the senior Kindergarten girls presented Humperdinck ' s opera, " Flausel and Gretel " , before the school. The same entertaimnent was repeated bv request at the clubhouse of the Echo Park Playground. The Kindergarten class gave a program of spring songs before the school in April. In the winter, the Senior A. class took u]) the study of o|)era and oratorio. In connection with this study, they gave to the school, an entertainment con- sisting of selections from the operas, rendered by " ictor Record. From time to time, through the year, songs, taken from programs given in the music classes have been sung at the .Assembly Exercises. 63 Y. W. C. A.

Our aim is to help every girl develop in herself a well rounded, symmetrical womanhood. To this end we give a large place to social afternoons, for we feel that a jolly time and a hearty laugh produce necessary and healthful reactions to the heavv course of study which the girls carry. Our Association stands for good comradeship and mutual helpfulness ' the kind of comradeship that gives the new girl a friend as soon as she enters; that puts the shy girl at her ease and helps her to become accustomed to her new surroundings : that makes the lonesome girl forget she has left friends and relatives in a distant town. Our Association stands for the fraternal ideal ; it inspires the modest girl by the opportunity for service ; it suggests to the girl unconsciously narrow and selfish that the greatest culture and joy come through wider and more sympathetic associations. Wy its lectures and reading circles it broadens the horizon of its members and shows them the kinship of the whole world. It calls upon girls for various kinds of work outside regular school duties, and so helps to make them resourceful and fits them for the larger responsibilities which will come in later life. And best of all, it convinces all that Christian w ' ork is social as well as spiritual. Realizing that iniinite possibilities are ours, it is our purpose to train care- fully every faculty, that we may render our fellows noble service intellec- tually, socially and spiritually. Robert Lewis Stevenson expressed this idea wdien he said, " Whom we love we serve. When we are loved by others. T may almost sav we are indispensable : and no man is useless who has a friend. " The withdrawal of ]Miss Wood, the able Chairman of our Advisory Board, caused us great regret, but Cupid ' s calls were imperative and we mortals could not hope to triumph over an immortal. We feel very deeply the loss of Miss Elliot. No one appreciates her un- selfish and loving character more than the Association girls. Time cannot cloud our sense of loss. Though we raise to her sweet memory no memorial of stone or bronze, it will be our lifelong purpose to make our lives, like hers, noble and true. ] Irs. English, the Advisory Board and the Y. W. C. A. Alumni are un- tiring in their interest and help. It vould be imi)OSsible to carry on our work without their efficient assistance. We wish to take this opportunity of expressing our sincere thanks to the Eaculty and the Student Body, especially the College Girls, for their hearty co-operation in all Y. W C.

Chamberlain J- When our class entered the Los Angeles Normal School, Miss Dunn and the commitee, at a first glance, could see only a few very ordinary young ladies and one lone, lorne co-ed. But when they came to examine our creden- tials they knew that here was a class at last in which they might well expect to realize their fondest hopes. Xor have they been disappointed for when- ever a knotty problem, physiological, biological, or psychological arises, they find that it is always one of us who is first to discover the solution. About three weeks after our advent, we suddenly became aware of the startling fact that our co-ed had disappeared. What commotion and tumult ensued! Each one of us was accused by the others of being directly respon- sible for his disappearance. Of course we all stoutly denied the charge. Xo one knows what might have happened had not Mr. Kersey saved the situa- tion by his opportune appearance, which caused all to forget past grief in present joy. We made our formal debut at the Capitola luncheon. . nd what a luncheon it was ! Each class had expended its best effort in making it an event long to be remembered. We received many compliments on the artistic appointments of our table and for the brilliant wit shown in our class songs and yells, but we did not allow these compliments to give any undue sense of our own importance for we know that " the perfection of art is to conceal art " , as Horace says. We have yet many happy Normal School days before us. Ooth here and elsewhere you will always find us loyal to our colors, the Blue and the Gold — the Blue for progressive thinking, and the untainted Gold for altruism or helpfulness to others. — ID.

The entire Girls ' Basket-ball Team with one exception is picked from our class. Our boys come in for a good share of glory on the Pioys ' Basket- ball Team.

It was theirs to prove that it is not in numbers but in wisdom that glory lies. They made their debut at the Capitola Luncheon, where each girl was provided with a large yellow bib, significant of her tender years. Mr. Chamberlain, the class teacher, sat at the head of the table and looked un- usually fetching with a bib of dainty hue fastened beneath his chin. Not having been properly instructed concerning " snap courses " and other aids to the weary, the little band devoted time and strength to arduous work for the first two terms. However, these strenuous days were enlivened by one or two class picnics. On these days Normal Rule and custom were cast to the winds. In the Junior A. term the class gave a dancing party to their friends, and all agreed that the evening had been a pleasant one. It was during this term alone that they had a man in their class, so pray give him some glory of their social attainments. But, alas, he only remained one term. We wonder why? The latest of the class frolics was a rowing party at Eastlake Park. Miss Backus, by her successful management, made this a jolly good time. Each term has added to their class membership until now the Senior B s number twenty-seven. — L. AI. STILES. 74 m Irk y Alumni and Former Students " To promote the spirit of good fellowship and to give a pleasant social life to the graduates of our school, " is the aim of our Alumni Association, as outlined by the President, Miss Nora Sterry. Given the hearty support of the graduates, the Association will be able, not only to realize this aim but to do a great deal in other lines where a small beginning has alreadv been made. One very practical thing which the Association is doing is to maintain the Students ' Loan Fund, which is drawn upon in small amounts and without security by needy students who are within one year of graduation. Another thing for which our Alumni Organization is to be commended is the giving of a Scholarship to the Juvenile Improvement Association. This scholarship pays the expenses of some child who could not otherwise attend school. The Alumni Association wishes very much to take more than one scholarship, after this year. The social side of the Alumni work has not been neglected. Annually, during the week of Teachers ' Institute, a banquet is held, where our Alumni get together for a delightful evening. This year the banquet was held at Levy ' s on the evening of Dec. 23. Addresses w ere given by: Joseph Scott, President of the Board of Education: Curtis D. Wilbur. Judge of the Juvenile Court of this city; Mark Keppel, County Superintendent, and Miss May Gerhart, one of the trustees of the Normal Alumni Association. An address was read from Dr. J. T. Millspaugh, our loved president. At the conclusion of the banquet the following officers were elected- President, Miss Nora Sterry: Secretary and Treasurer, Mrs. L. Hanson: First ' ice-President, W ' ilford Talbert : Second ice-President, Floy Galpin : Tliiid ' ice-l ' resi(lent. Helen Afatthewson : I ' ourlli ice-Presi(lcnt, r.ucy W liiUlcscy ; Trustee. Mrs. C. 1 ' " . Smith. besides this annual l)an(juct a series of entertainments is being planned for the coming year. The best obtainable talent among readers and musicians will 1)0 heard. A small sum will be charged, the profits to be added to the Students ' Loan Inmd. Scholarship Fund and current expenses of the xAsso- ciation. The first of this series of entertainments was given in the Polytechnic llii h School Auditorium on the evening of April 15th. The Senior A ' s were guests of the Alumni Association at the production of a pleasant little sk ' t. " Miss Civilization " . The Normal School Glee Club sang, thus fittingly open- ing a delightful evening. ] lr. Joseph Scott, President of the Board of Edu- cation, in his easy, humorous style delivered the prologue. The part of the leading ladv was taken by Mrs. Gertrude Parsons, head of the music depart- ments of both Los Angeles and Polytechnic High Schools. Other members of the cast were Mr. Bettinger, Assistant Superintendent of Schools ; Mr. Dolland, Principal of the Washington School ; Mr. Ray A ' ' an Cleave of the Los Angeles High School, and Mr. Monlux. —HILDA JELLISOX. 111. " " - - ' ' »- — ■ ' tjf IVnX 76 Hi ory of the Spring Class of 1 909 In Fel ruarv, VHJJ. twenty of us. including two boys, entered the Normal School. We came because. — well it doesn ' t matter much why we came. ' " " The faculty called us Junior IVs during the first term, and they liked us so well under that name that they continued to apply it to us during tiie second term. Afterwards when a notice for the Jr. l ' s was read in assembly, we thought for the moment that it was meant for us. After we had gone to school for a short time, the teachers found that our excellent work would be such a credit to the school that they asked us to stay four weeks longer than any other class had done or would do. W ' e decided to stay, glad ( " -| that our worth had been found out thus early. ' e continued to hold the good opinion of the faculty throughout our course for we were a most exemplary class in every way. We never gave Miss Dunn or the teachers any trouble about our excuses for WE ALWAYS HAD GOOD REASONS for our tardiness or absence. During our Junior A and Senior A terms we displayed our class sjMrit in a way that showed the other classes of what stuff we were made. The opportunity was offered by the Capitola luncheons. In imagination I can still hear the lusty notes of our class song : Let the ear ring with our cheering For the waving green and wdiite, And we praise it as we raise it, It ' s the finest thing in sight, For it ' s always on top, boys, (Jr.) (Sr.) A ' s you cannot stop, girls. So we ' ll all shout together For the waving green and white. When we became Sr. B ' s our number was increased by the addition of a number of college students, one of them a boy. These did the almost im- possible, i.e., raised the standard of our work. As Sr. A ' s we were ready to give information on any subject to any of the other students, even before they asked it. Far from being bowed down beneath our burdens, we had time and high spirits enough to greatly enjoy a class ••iinks " . an informal gathering at the home of one of our meml)ers, and a reception given in our honor by the Senior R ' s who realized our capa- city for absorbing sunshine. At last the faculty made the discovery that we knew ail that could be learned, so with saddened hearts they gave us our diplomas, telling us that we had reached the plane of " SOCIAL EFFICIEXCY.

George Houk (also forward). 80 Owing- to the limited nuinl)er of youno; men and the nature of our school grounds. I5asket-ball has been the only availal)le means of athletic exj ression, during the past school year. At the opening- of the school year, the basket- ball movement was inaugurated by the election of the following officers: Captain. Harwood ; IManager. lirant ; Coach. Mr. Kent. Practice was immediately begun and on Octoljcr ninth a practice g;me was played with " Poly " . This ended unfavoraldy for our team. ( )n ( )cto- ber sixteenth the second Polytechnic team played at Xornial. This game was in doubt up to the last whistle. Final score — Xormal 22, Polytechnic 19. Our next game was with Los Angeles High. Hitherto the Xormal boys h ive been pigmies in the game compared w-ith the boys of this school. This year we surprised the High School boys b}- running up a score of 29 to 14. This was the best game of the season. A series of three games was next played with U. S. C. Law School. The Xormal school was the victor in two of these contests. The bovs then tried a few out of door games but, due to lack of affection for mother earth, stion went back to the inside game. At the end of the first term, about December first, the team lost two of its best players, Harwood and Cripe. Houk was elected captain for the rest of the season. After a few practice games, the season was ended by two games with Alhambra. each team winning a game. During all the season the team has been indebted to Mr. Kent of the faculty and Ir. Heil of the student body for earnest work in coaching and reiereeing. This season has shown that in a school of as small a supply of material as we ha -e. practice and co-operation are necessary to produce a good team. All of the teams, with which we have played and with whom we ha -e kept a good record, have had from three to thirty times as many men as we from wdiom to choose. Boys — Iveep up Athletics.

More interest has been taken in tennis this year than ever before. At the beginning of the fall term the " Tennis Club " , was reorganized under the man- agement of Miss Myrtle Backus.

Our Department of Gems and Jewelry affords al- most unlimited choice in the selection of the grad- uation gift. We limit our stock of diamonds to perfect extra white and perfect blue white stones, so it is utterly impossible to secure any but perfect gems here. This assurance of quality that goes with any gift from Brock Feagans, whether it be some piece of gem set jewelry, a watch — sterling silver, or any of the many suggestions this store affords — assures -he greater appreciation of the gift — and satisfac- tion to the giver that it will worthily fulfill its mission. Sorority and class pins, emblems and medals are skillfully executed by our own expert designers and goldsmiths.
