Organizations Lutie Ruhland Athletics Sade Fox Joshes Artist Doris Rosenthal The Exponent originated in the year 1894, and was at first published by the ' ebster Club as an organ to represent its work, namely, oratory and debate. It is now sixteen years since this publication made its first appear- ance, during which time it has changed from a monthly journal under con- trol of the ebster Club to an annual under the control of the Summer graduating class. Although the Exponent is edited and managed by the Senior A Class it is not strictly a class paper, but is devoted to the interests of the entire school, aiming to encourage school and class activities and to furnish in- struction and entertainment to both students and alumni. While we are enabled to put forth this year an edition of The Exponent much superior to any of its predecessors, we still feel that it is far from being all that a school of our size is capable of. But our success this year is not due to our own efforts alone, but t o the earnest support we have received from all quarters. Realizing the number of school magazines that are launched upon the public each year, we first wish to sincerely thank our advertisers who have aided in making this boi k a success. Xext we are under obligations to certain of the faculty for their help, especially Miss Gere and ? Iiss O ' Kane, for their wise criticisms on all the art work. Then we also feel that thanks are due our class for the con- fidence they have i laced in us and for their support, financially and other wise. Last, but by no means an unimportant part of our success is due t ) the good spirit shown by the entire school. This is shown bv the fact that almost five hundred and fifty copies were subscribed for, even before the book was ready for the press. In short, good spirit has lieen shown by nil concerned. Faculty C -T7bserv1-ka. - There was a professor named Terman, ' ho certainly a few things can learn ' em. To Stanford he ' ll go, ' e " re glad it is so. But we ' ll sure miss Dr. Terman. There was a young lady Barnett, Who her wedding on Friday night set. Is he Dr. or Lawyer ? Her name now ' is Sawyer. But hoorav ! for she ' s with us vet. Palmer ' s the man with a hoe. Who out to the garden does go. He hoes up the weeds And then plants the seeds. So nicely aloni - in a row. There is another, I knew it — A very small lady, Miss Blewitt. Yes it is true. She leads Music H. A ' e ' re luckv to ever get thru it. Our li])rarian ' s iiainc is .Miss I ' argo, And l)oiiks she knows 1) - the cargo. Slic lias read many thru, And magazines, too, And if you ask her she ' ll sing you the Largo. Mrs. English knows all about zones And a knowledge of arithmetic owns; In apperceptive basis She leads the paces With talks on blood and bones. In the office we find ] Irs. Maier, Of her work she never does tire. Without any thanks, She gives data blanks, But to greater heights will aspire. Then there is the lady, ] Iiss Gere, For her equal you ' ll hunt many a year. She knows all about art From the very first start. And of masters, both far and near. To Miss Richardson what do you say? A lady so merry and gay; Full of fun and good cheer Throughout the whole year. And the girls love her better each day. Then there is the gentleman, Kent, ' ho a few years to school teaching lent. He teaches the girls To make wooden curls. And to know hriw brass should be bent. There is a teacher named Howe, He has great knowledge, I vow. He reads books by the score, And references galore ; And to his wisdom we bow. A very bright lady ' s O ' Kane; A knowledge from her we obtain On drawing of lines, And trees of all kinds ; We hope she ' ll with us remain. Miss Miller, so quiet and sweet. Ver}- few like her you ' ll meet : But for woman ' s rights She ' ll enter the fights, And never despair with defeat. A ith never once her patience losin ' She gets us books while we sit musin ' . Yes, you can bet She ' s the best yet. So here ' s three cheers for a.u Duesen. Mr. Shepardson, a man you will find. Always most helpful and kind. All teaching through. And seminar, too: A ' e ' re sorrv to leave him behind. Miss Jacob ' s a lady quite grand. Who gracefully waves her hand. She teaches us games And dances and things. And waves Indian clubs from a stand. lames Lhaniberlain, liow does he know, The winds and why the} l)low? He knows also rocks And all sudden shocks Down in the earth far l)elow. Miss Stei)hens. a lady cjuite small, And of music, she knows it all ; She knows it by rote, And also by note. Her melddies resound tlirou h the hall. ] lr. Miller! ( )h. he is the man, Who after a butterfly ran ; ' ith fleet feet and net He got it. you bet ; And its bright wings then did he scan. There is a young man, Gesell, Who knows phychology well, And everything new In Child Study, too. On his knowledge we ' ll no longer dwell. For Macurda. what can you say? He came from " Frisco one da} ' To aid Dr. .Millspaugh. And teach some school law, And his talks on discipline! — " Say! " ' There is another, ere I quit. Who in Reading has made a great hit. The stage lost an actress, A great benefactress— hen Hunnewell said, ' " Fll teach school a bit. " The last Imt not least is a bun, With our troubles we all to her run Yes. you have guessed, — We know she ' s the best, ril close mv iingle — it ' s Dunn. ' m A Play Or, perhaps, just the Material for a Play There slioukl be a great American drama written about American school lite. If you could catch the genuine atmosphere of an Institution of Learn- ing! If you could re])roduce a characteristic I- acuity with their serious, responsible manners ; a characteristic student body with their frivolous, inditfcrcnt attitudes Go to, — why not? 1 shall seize upon this valuable material. .Myself and no other shall become in a night the long-looked-for truly American playwright. M ' name on every one ' s lips. My money in every theatre box-office. Now it only remains to hit upon an important, well-known school. One of wide-spread influence, with a national reputati(jn. I have it. The dear old Hall of Learning on Fifth street. More than fi e thousand brilliant minds, according to the official records. ha e felt its benign tuition. More than a hundred teachers have helped mould the vigorous minds of these noble young students. (This play could turn into just a commonplace farcical thing like " Why Smith Left Home, ' " nr " What Happened to Jones, " but L ' m not going to let it, would you? Lm going to keep it on a high plane, almost a Tragedy. It seems more dignified then. And Dignjity is so essential in any Institution, particularlv in an Institution of Learning.) Well, so much for Looking About. Of course, }(iu know this is not an easy task. — to do it on a really big scale. But I have a Strange Feeling Within that assures me an unrelenting Fate has named me as her Agent. (Notice that I sometimes capitalize un- important words. It is reminiscent of Thomas Carlyle and George Ade. The words are not really unimportant. They have a deep symbolic meaning to those having eyes to see (suggestive of Maeterlinck.) All this long pre- amble of explanationings is in the amusing but impressive vein of G. Bernard Shaw. Did you ever notice about his plays? You spend so much time getting through the Preface that the evening is gone and the real ])lay not begun. Xow. I ought to have something in here suggesting the influence of that gigantic modern, Henrik Ibsen. That is almost too easy. Why, to be sure ! I am fortunate in writing of a school where on the Faculty and in the Student Bodv are great, wonderful, peculiar, fascinating women. Ibsen does not make much of the men ' s parts. Neither do we. It ' s surprising, isn ' t it. that whenever we stop to look, we find ourselves so amazingly like the World ' s Greatest Ones? But, no matter, let ' s go on with the play. We are ready for the Name. Suppose we agree upon " Climbing. " That is both Realistic and Symbolic. Tableaus are eflfective. We will begin with a Tableau. A Great Build- ing on a High Hill. From every direction, innumerable hurrying throngs, climbing, climbing, steep inclines, long flights of steps. Climbing. They carrv books and boxes and bags. Some are young: some are old. Some are near-voung: some near-old. Next, another Tableau. This time only the Building shows, — one wall removed. You see these people still climbing, climbing. Of course, the intelligent play-goer sees their Minds aspiring as well as their Feet. Next for the Faculty. Every group of animals, human or otherwise, has its leader. Bee-hi es, wood-choppers, and all. So likewise a Faculty. The President must be represented as tall. That is to symbolize the natural quality of Leadership. He must be dignified, reserved, yet. loved and rever- enced by all. As for the rest of the Faculty, all that is needed there to give veri- similitude, is infinite variety. First there are the Lady-Teachers and the Gentleman-Teachers. The Lady T ' s are much more learned and interesting, but the Gentlemen T ' s are much more important and popular, and for these reasons receixe larger salaries. The Gentlemen-Teachers mav ha c hair on the tops of their heads long and thick, black or red, or none at all. They can teach just the same. They may have any manner of facial appearance, cheerful or otherwise ; adorned with moustaches, small beards, large beards, or no decorations whatever. It ' s better to have them all married. This saves excessive heart-fiutterings among their co-workers or co-students. The Lady-Teachers are, as I suggested, more interesting. Ladies always are. Some of them need not be married when the Play begins, but the_ ' can get married while it ' s going on. These teachers can be of great variety also, — playful, solemn, at least almost serious-minded, clever, artistic, graceful, thoroughly responsible-looking, Nice People. Now the Play must show all these Indi iduals at Work. That ' s the hardest part. Do they Work? They look like it. They think so. Well, all we ' ve got to do is to get them to act like it, and we can surely hire some- body to wear their clothes and pretend. Then you must some way convey the impression of persistent repetition, repetition, repetition. Do you think we can manage that without having the House gradually withdraw and the Play Fail? It is momentous. (Re- member this is a Symbolic as well as a Realistic play. That makes every word have at least two meanings.) Also we might have one Act be a Faculty Meeting. They are such serious afTairs. We could try a student for her Life. Get together all the rumors ever rumored, and post-card pictures ever taken, compare impres- sions and condemn to Outer Darkness. Or we might be generous and rec- ommend her for some Fine Position where she could W ork Hard for Little Money. In many ways we could bring out the peculiar idiosyncracies of the dififerent Faculty members and indicate unmistakably their lasting love and interest in their Students, — just as we might in another Act show how deep-felt is the affection students bear their dear Teachers. The Great Hall of Audience ofifers dramatic opportunities. — or the Base- ment. But it is time for the Curtain to Rise.

It was a warm July day in 1909, and she had waited two hours for the train which was to bring Mrs. Roscoe, her girlhood chum, in an old-fashioned ' ■Academv. " " Since coming to California though living in different counties these friends always managed to have a good long visit together once a year. As Sallv Stedman sat fanning herself with the Perrytown Clarion and gazing out of the open door at the quivering atmosphere above the railroad tracks, she heard a welcome sound. It was faint and far away still when from nowhere appar- ently appeared an expressman : the steady ticking of the telegraph kev stopped, the agent dragged out a mail sack and finally the pounding of the rails grew louder, and the little Branch line engine coughed up to the station. ' AA ' hy. there you are. Sally I Ho ■ are you? The two friends embraced, and Sally led Becky Roscoe thru the depot to the eucalyptus grove behind wdiere Doll}- and the rig were hitched to a much gnawed tree-trunk. After clind:)ing into the surrey Sarah slapped the lines and they started down the dusty road to the Stedman ranch. The " hot spell " being talked over, and creeps and relatives discussed, Sally said, " Well, did Clara go tew school tew th " city? " " Oh, yes. but she ' s t ' hum now to keep house fer her paw y ' know, an ' my, she seems tew be glad tew get hum, but she ' s had a good time at Xormal anyhow. " ' ' Why, J thought she didn ' t want t ' go? " " A ' all. she didn ' t at fust, ye know she talked about goin ' t ' th ' ol ' maids ' home an ' all sech truck? W al, " pears all of ' um that went had about the same idee, but she had a good room-mate — th ' one that ' s comin ' out tew visit in August — and before th ' year was up they all made lots ov frien ' s an ' concluded it w ' asn ' t sech a bad place after all. " Ye see they ' re the Summer Tens, an ' they wuz the biggest class that ever entered the schule durin ' its whole hist ' ry: so T guess they ' ll be (|uite a class alright. Things seemed to be made out to suit them all along. Fust w hack their programs were all made out for them and courses have just been arranged lew suit llicm i irls. Clara said they were divided into six diff ' runt sections an ' they .mit to. etlier an ' elected section officers, then they had l eneral officers — real nice j irls I gness — they were Sade Fox, president; IJertlia liill, ice-|)resident ; Mlhel Ardis. secretary, and ' era Hoft ' master, treasurer. l el ' ore they ' d I)een there a little while the Faculty found out they were such a ] ' y lot that the}- thoui. ' ;ht they ' d give a reception. My! but they transformed that gymnasium. Clara said it looked like a bit of fairv land— an ' I s ' i)ose it looked nice with the lights an ' music an ' tiuffy dresses — but what do vou think? lien it came refresliments time them l " ' icult - folks gilt down and waited on them girls! Xachly they enjoyed that e ent. ■ ' Clara seemed lo think it wasn ' t sech awful liard work this year. I guess because the teachers made things so interestin " like. I know she men- tioned a -Mrs. English especially, and Miss Gere, but she had a awful time with her comjiositions though — couldn ' t seem to suit that teacher at all! " Mere Sally interru])te(l to call attention to some points of interest along the way. .Soou they reached home and a lunch in the cool dining-room of the ranch house. Howexer, tlie topic of interest got l)ack to Xormal again. ■ " Speakin " of V. W. work, " said ]vlrs. Becky, " ye know they is quite an association at the .Xormal — at least sence a number of the Summer Ten girls joined. Las ' I ' all they gave a Hallowe ' en party to the school (the S. lO ' s are al)out half the school, ye know), an ' they had an awful scrumptious time bobbin ' fer a])])les and gettin ' fortunes told. " " Clara, " interjxised Mrs. Sally, " used tew be such a good player in bas- ket-l)all at Hi h School, too l)ad she couldn ' t keep it up! " " My. she does; she joined a basket-ball team right away — they were mostly junior ITs, and such a good team that they played outside schools even. " ' e . she came home for ddianksgiving and Christmas. Christmas time she told u about Miss Wood — married, y ' know. Ves, an ' two girls in the class left to git married this year. 1 guess they ' re a awful match-makin ' class. Then, mind you, Sally, two more of the Faculty got married! — Sech exam])les fer them girls, an ' what do you think them girls did? A ' ore crape, . ' ■•ally, and decorated his chair an ' hers in chaj el. Thet ]:)ore gr(Tom was pestered to death till he made a s|)eech — Clara just has spasms when she tells about it. " ' es, an " when they got tiwv ])c junior ii ' s. Miss .Miller was attracted clear from ' i ' hroo]) to teach them, an " Miss Harnett, too. (all the girls jest worshi]) her. Clara says.) I was just wouderin " if their match-makin ' repu- tatirm lied traveled. Sence Christmas she ' s been takin " .Agriculture and writin " ' pon how tew raise i arden truck an ' feed a cow, an ' sech foolishness I hope they don ' t expect teachers to do sech thini s, hut say ye sh ' d see the injnn basket she made jest Hke reak " Have tew t;et supper? All rit lit. I ' ll sliell th ' i)eas fer you an ' we can talk in the kitchen. Did 1 tell you al)out the 1909 Cai)itola Luncheon. ' No? Well, all the school goes and each class has tables decorated. I ' m sure from the description the Summer Te n table was scrumptious. Red geraniums an " green stuff — their colors, ye know — an ' even place cards. Clara has ben singin ' a couple of class songs incessantly annmd the house. " Before folks got thru talkin ' al)out how the}- drowned out all the rest with their songs and }ells an ' drinkin ' glasses, they gave a part - such as Clara calls a " perfectly keen time " an ' they waxed the (ivm tioor ! Why not? Well, Juniors aren ' t allowed to. an ' th ' .S. lO ' s have the old mischief in them, so it happened. Do you know they wouldn ' t tell, and were put in disgrace for a year — isn ' t that a shame! The College girls at Normal felt so sorry that they gave a reg ' lar C )llege Jinks fr»r them, an ' the .Senior A ' s gave a Minstrel Show for them, so they didn ' t feel so bad. " These peas is all shelled now. Do tell me al)out that talented relatixe of } ours who ' s just come out. ( )h. speakin ' (ji talent, Clara ' s class has lots of that — most all th ' Glee Club is made up of S. 10 girls, tew sav nnthin ' of the fun talent an ' dramatics, too. " W hen .Sally came in fri)m feeding the chickens. IJeckv continued: " Ye know I told ye th ' Summer I ' ens couldn ' t ha e a party — well, their spunk — you know Clara ' s been takin ' g -mnasium exercises since Thanksgivin " — an ' they had a com])etitive gymnasium drill between th ' diff ' runt sections. Each section decorated a corner of th ' gallery an ' had a ' ellin ' team. ' as Clara calls it. I wish 1 could have seen that, it must " a ' been purty. " About this time they began tew have so much class enthusiasm that it overflowed on the Senior A ' s. Ye see the Senior A ' s had a bell — a reg ' lar auction bell to call their meetin ' s t ' order an ' one day the Junior A ' s — that ' s Clara ' s class — got hold of the bell an ' went round shoutin ' Junior A ' s! Junior A ' s! Mien them Seniors heard the bell they all rushed out like mad and tried to get it. The junior A ' s got in a bunch an ' more from both sides came up. an ' it was like a tug-o ' -war; Clara called it a " rough-house. " but " I think it must ha ' been a " rough hair. " ' cause she said they all lost their combs an ' pins an " — well, the Junior A ' s kept that l)ell. 1diey haven ' t had anything so exciting since then. " The junior Y. W. girls gave them some kind of a party though, an " later on Clara and all of her class went to the Senior A play and other (loin ' s. l)ut lliey (i f(l theirs would be tifty hotter, an ' I guess thev will — aceiaml i f th ' unusual lot d " talent. " It is a July day a year later and Sally is sitting ' un Decky ' s porch in the prosperous little town of C . They have just laid down their crochet for out conies Clara, a dainty and very smart appearing young woman with white dress and a tray of cool lemonade. After she had gone Sally remarked to Becky. " I was just thinkin " of Jedge Dough ' s daughter, who went east lo a girls ' finishin ' school ; now Clara looks every bit as pert an ' stvlish an ' no taffy at all. " ' ' ' al, " said I ' .ecky. " I must say as shouldn ' t, that the Xormal turned (jut as fine a lot of girls as I ever want tew see. Mvl paw an ' I thought them a sight fer scire eyes! But let me begin at the beginnin ' . " Clara said it was like a big reunion when they went back to Los Angeles las ' Fall. The girls began tew have lots of fun outside school — just little larks together — so many good lectures, ye know, an ' I don ' t know what her paw ' ll say, but she went considerable to the theatre durin ' the las ' vear — but girls will l)e girls. ■ " They elected officers right away, ' cause by that time thev knew how lew pick. They took Lenore Zinnamon for President. Doris Rosenthal for " ice-President. .Mary Howell fer Secretary, an ' A ' esta Eaton fer Treasurer: an " they ' ve kej them all year. Speakin " of good choices. I fergot tew sav thcy had Dr. Terman. an ' Dr. Gesell an ' liss Barnett fer class teachers. " The Summer Tens began teachin ' in the Trainin ' School the fust thing when they got l ack. but it didn ' t take them long to get the knack of it. an ' before long they got it down to a fine point. So now teachin ' s the least of their trouliles. Another matter came up soon, which would nachlv please a match-makin ' class. The music teacher. Aliss Hagan. got in a knot — the love kind, Clara said — but my, you should have read her letters about that time — you ' d think that with Miss Hagan the whole school got up an ' left! " Yes, I would like another glassful. Well, as I was savin ' them girls are so full ri ' spcrits an ' they got tew callin ' their class meetin ' s by serpen- tines. Don ' t understand? V ' ell. a bunch get in a string wnth their hands on each other ' s shoulders and dance up an ' down the halls singing. ' Hi, hi, hickus ' (one of their class songs), an ' when they get a long string they ' d take ' em back to Room ' . where thev had their meetin ' s. " Havin ' exjieriences in bein ' the whole show at Capitola Luncheon las ' ■year, it was easy as Clara says to ' take the cake ' this year. Clara said the faculty was sports— whate -er that is — they all serpentined down to the luncheon with the class .two hundred of ' em all in a string, an ' all actin ' like kids. Tlicir yell leader had a iiie. aplK me, an " the wav ihey reeled off the yells an ' soi s mnsta been like elockvvork. Clara said that they made the biggest hit. She ate her lunch after school that day ' cause it took all noon t ' give them cle er }ells an ' songs. " The nex ' thing that happened was the Cajjitola Jollyui), in which the Senior B ' s did most of the stunts. ()! 1 fergot tew tell vou about the great basket-ball team the Summer Tens had this year. Vou know the luniors had a good team too, but they played off a series of games an " it nnlv took two games, ' cause the Senior B ' s beat them all holler with the aid of a good ])unch of ' rooter-girls, ' as they call ' em. " Studies? Oh, _ es, they all had tew work purty hard, an ' Clara was so peekid at Christmas holidays — you know it was th " eff ' ects of School Law an " History of Ed., as she called it. On to]) of all that, she an ' a lot of other Senior B ' s were called to the President ' s office, an " 1 couldn ' t under- stand the trouble, but it was somethin ' about chapel talkin ' an ' by-laws, an ' I wrote I was plumb ashamed, an ' she wrote things wuz gettin ' worse, an ' even their teachers w ere caught occasionally, but it all l)lew over in time for th ' Senior B Ball for the Senior A ' s. " I ' ll tell you wdiat, Sally, them girls is like chain-light nin " . W hy. ])efore they knew it, th ' sixteenth of January was upon them — the day the - -owed to give a grand doin ' s to make up for a year ' s dearth. Well. Sally, as shure ' s I ' m Becky Roscoe them girls inside of one little week, had chosen an ' rehearsed a play every night till the janitor got insomnia. It was th ' Grecian Bend. (Clara sent me a copy an ' I nearly died readin ' it.) They had all the invitations out for the Senior A ' s an ' the Gym decorated with pennants from end tew end — well, Clara said the grandest time of her life wasn ' t in it with ' The Grecian Bend, ' and the dancin ' — the boys were there in plenty, too. ' AA ' ell at last she got tew be a Senior A an ' then things begun to hum — so she wrote. I ' ll tell you some other time ' bout th ' rousin ' class meetin ' s thev had every Tuesday, an ' the times with havin ' pictures took for the Exponent book. They went lots to th ' skatin " rink an ' they gave a beautiful fancy dancin ' exhibition at the city playground May Day Festival, but one Fridav one of their favorite teachers, Miss Barnett, went away, an ' Mrs. Sawyer took her place, but anyway Clara said she was just as nice an ' came dressed so cute to th ' Kids ' party they had. I ' d give nty best bunnit to hev seen ' em all dressed like little girls an ' boys. too. an ' drinkin " pmk lemonade an ' dancin " . " Clara says the Summer Tens had to hire a coach for their play, which mounted up their expenses lots more than any other class, but they came out all right, an ' their play was just grand. Sally, for T saw that myself. Voii see i a v an " I wux there lo llu- L raduation an ' in ' . it looked fine to see them girls ( A-er two liunch-ed strong ' marcliin ' up tew get them diplomas. Well, I ' ll tell yon alxnit the good times the - had before I got there, only I mnst start supper now — it ' s gettin " dark. " Why, I declare. 1 didn ' t shrtw you their Ex])onent book: it ' s the biggest and most -artistic ever published ! }• th ' Xormal in Los Angeles — it ' s just great an ' the jokes are reel funny. ■ " Wh}-. no. she didn ' t ha e any trouble gettin ' a position — the school boards just fell over themseh-es grabbin " fer teachers from that class. Yes, it ' s all over now, but Clara has made lots of nice friends an ' I guess the Summer Tens will leave a long an ' erdant memory in the school, an ' they won ' t be forgot soon, neither. " Margaret Sinclair. The Senior Aze (Character Sketch Written at the Close of a Severe Day.) It is no light and airy task to furnish an a(lec|iiate account of the Senior Class of 1910, — a class which is so largely composed of its numerous indi- vidual members. As we go to press these members tally to about 215. Whether the number will fall far below this, depends technically upon the size of the graduating group. If statistics were interesting we should say that all the Seniors for the year, including the Fall and Winter styles, shall have been about 304. Graduating Seniors before the present year total to 2.443. It may be of interest to the future antic|uarian to know that Lenore Zinnamon was the 4,607th student to alphal etically enter our Xormal School since 1882. According to Miss Dunn, this is her accession numl)er. I asked Miss Dunn what she thought of the class from the standpoint of the higher criticism. She thougin it was heterogeneous, but a pretty nice class, as they themselves modestly confessed at the Capitoline auditory picnic. Their decorations at this quiet little affair, were likewise very mod- est and subdued. In spite of their heterogeneity, the class is really very well co-ordinated. ( )n a moment ' s notice they articulated themselves into a sinuous serpent. — a huge human boa, — and wound their tranquil, reptilian course through corridor and down stairway. The large number of sections into whicli tlie class is divided, is a sign of that heterogeneity which Herbert Spencer considers an accompaniment of progressive evolution. Xo Senior class has had so many sections ; no class has met such complex situations and produced such intricate programs. Xo class has lost so many locker keys. Hilaritv joins with heterogeneity as a class characteristic. Dignified and subdued at the august teachers " reception, the class becomes hila rious in the theft of their rival ' s bell. Hilarious do they also become in the waxing of the gym floor and the frolics thereon. A word of personal mention may be out of order. The source of the information is the accession book. According to this book. Miss Hedgpeth is classified as an American who comes from Prairie Home. Md. Irs. Shel- don, on the other hand, comes from Atlanta. Ga.. and Mrs. Hunnewell is recorded as her guardian. Miss Riecker comes from Tucson. Arizona. Space and fatigue interdict further detail. In fact, it is impossible to fully characterize this charming class; for they are incomi)arable_; and they outstrip their leaders even before they overtake them. In iiroof we quote their own rhythmic, self-reliant slogan : Hi. Hi. hikus! X ' obody like us! We ' re the class of Summer Ten ! A eTe going to beat you. Ere we meet vou. Rah! for Sum ' mer Ten! Hi!

Here he meets those who have had mtich the same scholastic training " as himself and who are held together by a common bond of love and loyalty to their Alma ] later, the mother of their intellectual life. At first he wonders not a little at the apparent apathy of the older members, who are content to come together only once a year at the annual ban(iuet. where the school songs are sung by the scattered few who remember them, an indififerent dinner is eaten, and long, semi-humorous toasts are listened to with visible resignation. But as the years go by and other interests grow in importance he finds himself dropping into this same rut that once he deplored. He is nc less grateful to his school and loyal to it ; perhaps he appreciates more keenly all that he owes it. Rut he comes also to api)reciate that this annual meeting, which once he regarded as wholly subordinate in the life of the Association is in reality its chief reason for existing and in the drawing- together of its meml ers the association is accomplishing a definite good for the school in whose honor it is formed. Many an alumni association has given to its school tangible, material gifts in the shape of money, ])ictures, buildings and so forth. All bodies of Alumni should stand ready to help in such ways w hen necessary. But the greatest good the graduates can render to their Alma Mater is the ])romoting of a vital spirit of love and loyalty towards it. With such a spirit broadcast all other necessary things are easily attained. And ir is largely through the alumni re-unions that such a spirit is fostered. For many years the Alumni Association of our school has held an annual banquet followed by a business meeting. Most of these banquets have been well attended and successful from every point of " iew. Yet during the last ear, at a called business meeting, the members of the association who were present -oted unanimoush- to discontinue this annual meeting, to abolish the payin t;- of dues, and to meet hereafter only once in five years,. A word of explanation is due to you who are so soon to he numbered as members of the Alumni. The teachers of Los Angeles City are almost too well organized. There are the Grade Teachers ' Club, the Principals ' Club, the Kindergarten Club, the High School Teachers ' Club, the School Masters ' Club, the Southern California Teachers ' Association, and others. The writer of this article belongs to three distinct organizations of teachers. Almost every teacher in the city belongs to at least two. These associations take not onlv money but time and energy, of which the average teacher has no great surplus. Then, too, it is difificult to find a suitable time every year for the meeting. For many years the annual re-union was in June, but this was unsatisfactory inasmuch as the country teachers could not attend. Of late the banquet has been held during the meeting of the Southern California Teachers ' Association. This, too, has proven unsatisfactory, because the S. C. T. A. meets the week before Christmas. This year the last program closed about f ve o ' clock Christmas Eve. Man}- teachers who would have been glad to attend the banquet under other circumstances could not spare the time to do so in that busy week. Hence it was decided not to hold the banquet this year and to discontinue it in the future. This does not mean, however, that there are to be no more re-unions. The graduates throughout the state have a profound feeling of admiration and afifection for this school, not only because of the personal help they have received but because the school has always done so much to raise and maintain a high standard in our profession. We will meet not so often, perhaps, in the future, because of our busy life, but when we do come together in honor of our Alma Mater it will be with unfailing en- thusiasm and loyalty. The next re-union is to be held at the Normal School in 1915. and there- after the Alumni will meet once every five years. Let us all pull together to make the meeting in 19L5 a memorable one. Kindergarten The Kindergarten Department of the Los Angeles State Normal School was opened in 1896. and organized by Miss Florence Lawson. director (1896- 1904). In 1904 Miss Lsabel French took up the work and has carried it on to the present day. The first class was graduated in June. 1897. and each year kindergart- ners have graduated until the Kindergarten Alumnae now number about one hundred and fifty. The Alumnae meet three times a year, one of these meet- ings being a luncheon for the Board of Education and the members of the graduating class, on the first Saturday in June. The Alumnae have first, founded ' and supported a kindergarten in the ' •Boys and Girls ' Aid Society, " South Pasadena (1900) : second, through pri- vate ' subscription and entertainments endowed a room (three beds) in the Children ' s Hospital, Los Angeles in memory of Florence Lawson. the organ- izer of the Kindergarten Department, and ' in 1906 the Alumnae opened and furnished an Alumnae room in the Kindergarten Department, to serve as a center in the social life of the kindergarten.

The historv of the Class of December. Nineteen Hundred and Ten is the history of a steady climb. At 8:45 A. M. for five terms, we have climbed two blocks and for every forty-five minutes thereafter we have climbed a half to two blocks of stairs. At this rate do you wonder that we will soon be the foremost educators in the lower regions of L. A. S. X. S.? We are a class of achievements. Perhaps you may like to hear of a few of them. We are not afraid of Miss Dunn. We have had three class meetings and one president. After two terms ' experience as our step-father, Mr. Chamberlain found -it necessary tt spend the summer in Colorado. A ear as mother confessor and legal adviser of our class gave Mrs. Hunnewell a nervous breakdown. We have been especially fortunate in having all the new teachers before they learned the ways of the Normal. We were mute at our first Capitohi : at our second we monopolized tlie howling while the other classes turned red with en ' . ' ' ' During " ur second term we thought that we had found a mascot in Mr. Kersev, but he turned out to be our father and often when we stood at his knee and begged for a story he would say. " A wise okl owl lived in an ()ak ; The more he saw, the less he spoke: The less he spoke, the more he heard. Children, learn to be like this bird ' — and we did. Of course, the Summer Tens are excepted. Boom — jig " — a — boom. Boom — jig — a — boom. Boom jig a rigger jigger Rigger jigger Isoom ! Wah lioo wall. Wall hoo wah. Spring Eleven ! rah ! rah rah ! Class Officers President — Marguerite Cooper. ' ice President — Ehnor Dougherty. Secretary — AHce Bhist. Treasurer — Georgia ( )yler. An awful calamity befell Spring Eleven last semester. Miss Hagan, or rather Mrs. (loodwin, our group teacher, was stolen away from us, and b ' a man, too, think of it! As a token of our love and esteem we presented her with a brass jardiniere. We were so cut up about her lea ing us that we thought we ' d never survive, but along came the Capitola Luncheon, and of course the junior A " s generaled by Miss Blewett, rose to the occasion and made " the best display of any of the classes. " " Our c( )rner of the lunch-room was tastefully decorated in A-iolet and nile. . huge i)ennant with " Spring Eleven " " written across it occupied a consi)icuous place above us, wdiile smaller ] ennants va ' ed around us, under which onh- the select, otherwise called junior A " s, sat. With laugh anfl song and vvW the noon-time passed and the junior A ' s certainly did their part. We have kept a Httle quiet in the past year, but never mind, our turn ' s soon coming and then — well, you just keep your eye on the Spring Elevens. Blanche Ford. Dear Old Quitter: So you wish to know all about the junior A ' s. " your ' " clas s, as you have the impudence to call it. after staying- in its ranks less than a month! Life histories are much in vogue as we who are enjoying Nature Study can well testify, and I ' ll endeavor to profit by our recently acquired knowl- edge, and experience, to give you the life history of the Junior A ' s. Know first then, my dear, that we, the Junior A ' s, pass thru three stages l)efore we become full-fledged Junior A ' s. There is a period in which expe- rienced Scientists in this line of study, term us Junior C " s. It is rather hard to define the characteristics of the species during this early period, because they vary with the individual. However, in the main, there is an exagger- ated air of importance quite disproportionate to our }-outh. Our souls have transmigrated from High School, and though they have entered a new world they retain consciousness of the other, and can not realize that no matter how conspicuous in that inferior world, here, we are merely classed and con- sidered as Junior C ' s with heartless disregard of our past history. After many weeks of treatment of various kinds from various individ- uals interested in our development we emerge — unless these said individ- uals ha e cruelly neglected us, or we have wilfully resisted their efforts — as Junior B ' s. As Junior B ' s our predominant characteristic is our familiarity with our new surrounding ' s, and new life. We learn the hours when we must work, when we dare " ditch. " when we can safely nap, when we can " rest on our oars. " and when, by power of personality, we are kept thoroughly alive and interested. Which hours? Do you think I w ' ould reveal our secrets? We learn how to study without being a " grind. " We learn numerous, little, " perfectly good ' ' tricks that are an immense aid in keeping the midnight candle from burning low. We learn to observe, and utilize to our profit, the methods of our instructors, not putting them into practice in the training school (as yet we have no opportunity), but using them to save us time, strength, and gray matter, now. We come to the conclusion that calling for recitations in alphabetical order — A to K one day, K to Z the next, is a most admirable system. We learn that whispering, in the assembly is a cardinal sin, and offenders ma_ ' be obliged to sign a sort of silence pledge card. We learn the correct posture for the lawn. We learn innumerable things, until this knowledge becomes so apalling for mere Junior B ' s that we are given a week ' s holiday, and return as |unior A ' s — proud, full grown. Juniors at last. This is our history up-to-date. I can see your dissatisfied look and disappearing frown, as you exclaim, " Well, a lot I ' ve learned about those Junior A ' s! " Don ' t be so impatient, child, everything must have its formal introduction. No? Curious to know who the class officers are? First and foremost, .Mr. Abbot, our President, — don ' t think I misspelled or wrote hastily — I intended that just as it is, Mr. and not Miss Abbot. Do you remember Ethel Lock- hart? She is our Vice-President, and Vivian Yett, our Secretary. Edith Turner is our Treasurer, and she ' s starting a penny bank account for the class. As the class is so large, parties, picnics, dances, etc., so far, have not been attempted, excejU b} ' the different sections of the class, but these have had some delightful picnics at the Ijeaches and caiions, parties at school, and at the students " homes. But the entire Junior A ' s have been united in two e ' ents. First, the reception by the Y. W. C. A. girls who gave us our first glimpse of the good times and good friendships in store for us. Then the Capitola luncheon ! Such uproarious, shouting, singing, laughing, Capitola diners as we were ! The other girls who are writing tonight, forbid my trespassing on their grounds, so Fll tell the important part, — the Junior B ' s participation in this annual affair. Our colors w ere lavender and white. One corner of the lunch-room was decorated with pennants and streamers of these colors, and we, gala-decked in white gowns and bunches of violets. W ' e had several songs and yells. Our star number being Miss Martin ' s song — and our Presi- dent was in his element as a yell leader. We did our shrieking best to drown out the others, though we paused occasionally to give tribute to the clever yells and songs of the Senior B ' s. It was novel and new to us. but we joined in the noisy movement as heartily as the rest. XA ' e ' ve been a model of propriety as } ' et. and have had no chance to ' ' congratulate " ourselves on having " done something strange and extrava- gant and broken the monotony of a decorous school. " The clock in the gym was mysteriously, stealthily aided in its snail progress to the dancing hour, but that created but a momentary excitement. Have you seen Esther Andrews lately? When you do, ask her this riddle, " W hat is a swain? " ' Oh, by the way, if you are going up Mt. ' ilson she ' ll gladlv loan you her red sweater. Could you keep a secret? Cross your heart? " We are gathering in- formation for the most exciting novel, entitled " The Badger-Lea itt Rom- ance. " Oh, it will be thrilling! Love letters, rendezvous — rivals, broken hearts, etc. Yes. indeed. C " u])id lurks in this old building — twice the wedding ' bells lia e rung. But we. the Junior A " s, are being well trained to be " unclaimed treas- ures. " Our gardening will enable us to raise and sell vegetables to cover the incidentals that a teacher ' s salary does not provide for; our study of birds and animals will enable us to appreciate the company of a parrot and a cat ; our psychology will aid us to analyze the emotions foreign to a spin- ster — no. " l:)achelor-girr " is the modern term. Vet we are not as frivolous, as unappreciative, as this sounds. We never whollv lose sight of our purpose here — the X. P. (noble profession). Our teachers have shown us the tremendous power and influence that lies within our chosen work. So here ' s thanks to the teachers who have made us Junior A ' s. thanks to the girls who welcomed us. and thanks to the students who made room for us! Here ' s pity for you quitter, because you ' re not a Junior . ! Nfarie Holwav. e!JC]0@l? Of course, you know what a wonderful class it is, and how, when we entered the school in January, every one looked to us as the future prop and stay of the school. Although small in number, we are great in ambition. ' e had only been in the school a short time, when an announcement was made to the effect that the Y. A ' . C. A. was going to hold a reception for us, on the bridge. Of course, we were all there, and had a dandy time playing game? and incidentally eating cookies and apples. " All the Junior C ' s will please meet in Room B, at 12:45 todav. ' erv important. ' " This was the notice read one morning, and then we began to realize that we were really a part of the great Normal School. Promptly at 12:45 we were there, anxious to know w hat w-as wanted of us. It was soon known that we were to elect our class officers and then such buzzing as started. After a great deal of talking the following officers w-ere elected: President — Hazel Burns. Vice-President — John Dyck. Secretary and Treasurer — lone Lowman. After our first meeting, many were the " important meetings. " W ' e had to discuss our class colors and the coming Capitola luncheon. We decided upon red and white as our colors, and we w ere very proud of them. too. At the luncheon we had our little corner of the room decorated with our beautiful colors. A ' e couldn ' t make •ery much sound against the other classes, l)ut ve gave our yells, one of which started like this: Boom — boom ! Boom — boom ! Rah, rah, rah ! Junior C ' s. Yah, vah. vah ! After this we were so busy studying ( ?) for our examinations that our meetings were few. Then came our long-looked-for Easter vacation. Since we have returned and have assumed the dignity of Junior B ' s we have not done ery much along social lines, but soon we are to have our good times. : 3 ' ' T mm [@m We have just entered — in March, you know, and we can ' t say very much for ourselves yet — we ' re too youno to know, ell, we haven ' t had time, but we ' re makiui - history as fast as we can. We had a jolly good time in the " bridge " with the V. W . girls, when they gave us a hearty reception, but we ' ve been so busy since with physical geography, and compositions, and learning to dance in the gym at noon and — well, ])lease excuse our haste and brevity, for we have to do some art work after school tonight — you know how it is. Yours, The Junior C ' s. Kindergarten Department At the corner of East Xinth and Wilson streets, almost in the shadow of the bii Hauser packing plant, is located the " ' Church of the Xeighbor- hood, " as the notice board in the yard reads — " The Protestant Episcopal Mission. " Here on several days of the week a rummage sale is held, and here the housewives of the neighborhood gather — a few Americans and Germans, but mostly negroes and Italians. . ' ext door on Wilson street is a low brown bungalow, covered to the ea es with red geraniums. This is the kindergarten. The material and fur- nishings belong to the mission ; the teachers, usually no less than two, are practice teachers from the Senior Kindergarten Class of the State Xormal. who are on duty from 8:30 to 11:30. coming up to Xormal for their after- noon recitations. At present there are about forty names on the register of the kinder- garten, and an average daily attendance of about twenty. The negro chil- dren, mostly clean and l)right. are faithful in attendance : the little foreigners, some of whom understand very little English, come and go as thev please. When out of kindergarten these children pla}- in the streets, and have early learned to fight their own battles, and so, each child ' s hand is raised against his neighbor in insistence upon his own rights. ' Alorning Circle " would more nearlv resemble a miniature prize ring, if it were not for the teachers, who. aided by an ancient square piano, teach songs and games containing much action. Children four years old bring their " baby " brothers and sisters, who sit solemnly in a row against the wall. Most of them are too timid or frail to create any confusion until. ])erha])s. one feels neglected and begins to cry. then " Frankie " must hurry from his " gift " " lesson to l acify his " baby. " There is a small yard with one swing, between the church and btuigalow. The children are gi en reins, balls, and bean-bags to play with, but the swing is the most po]ndar form of amusement. South of the kindergarten is a larger bungalow-, and here on March 1st, Deaconesses Anna and Mary arrived from Philadelphia to take up their resi- dence, and work for. and with the neighborhood. ' ith their help and their summer work, which will keep the children ' s interest alive, the teachers who go down to " East Xinth " in Se])tember will find the way much clearer before them. Anygirl.

" The hope is that every year the Seniors ma} ' give the play developing it anew every time, and coloring it with their own pa rticular class personality. The idea of the play was suggested by the morality play. ■■Ever_ nian. " It fell to the Seniors of 1910 to make the idea a reality. The cast was first assigned — keeping in mind each girl ' s natural fitness for her part — but this cast was not kept during the first three or four re- hearsals. These were of an extremely simple character. You were told that you were A ' isdom. and requested to say something appropriate. This. of course, resulted in complete mental blankness, so you mumbled some- thing, made a curtsey and efi aced yourself, as far as possible. By the time vou had been Time.

When the day arrived we brought in mustard in such quantities thai Mr. ] raior was moved to despair at our thoroughness. The time arrived; the children were there in their Avhite dresses, full of the most eager interest : the girls in their robes, full of solemn responsibility. The play had begun. Anygirl danced, Hope came and went. Complaints came, also the eleven lovely Virtues, and ' omanhood crowned her. Before we knew it our little moment was over and the first production of " Anygirl " was a success. Literary Chosan Pinjee (Korean Letters) Tabowie, Korea, Oct. 1, 1904. My Dear K : In my last letter written from Chemulpo, I told yon we would not be able to write more until we arrived at Tabowie. Here, at last, after the most interesting- part of our trip, we leave the rocking of the ocean waves and the jerking of the sedan-chair, to make our home in the northwest corner of the " Hermit Kingdom. " ' We live in a valley surrounded on three sides by high, jagged moun- tains : far to the south, w e can see Yueng Byen Peak stancling sentinel over the clusters of village huts, which hug the crooked, mountain stream, as it winds down toward the Yellow Sea. Our own home is half way -up the side of the valley, above all the Korean houses and we have been busy trying to make it habitable. I will send you a sketch of its external appearance and try to picture for you the interior as we have been able to furnish it. The main house has four roouis with white papered walls; the doors and windows of lattice work arc also covered with paper, (think of me when it is 35 degrees below y.vro). Still, they say these houses are cr ' warm; for they are heated by means of " kangs, " — flues which are built under the stone floors, and carry the heat from the fire built in an opening at one end of the house, to the chimney Iniilt outside at the opposite end. This stone floor is covered with a layer of cla}-, leaked hard, over which we place large, coarsely woven cane rugs for a carj et. Our curtains and draj eries are of a soft, cream-white cloth, woven here by hand ; they have a border of dark-red, and the table-ccn-er and pillows in the liivng-room are of this same red cloth. In the dining-room we have blue draperies and. " the pride of our heart. " " a rramd tal)le. made by a Jajianese carpenter, of planed ]iine. uni)ainted. The kitchen has a hand-made, sheet-iron stove with t v(j covers, such a one as we used to take up the rixer on our boating trips. The glory of the bedroom is the bed, which is six feet wide and seven feet long. You must remember that the natives sleep on the i ooT, so when they made our bed, I think the - took the dimensions of their own sleeping room and went to work, liut this bed had been stored in the wareliouse for some time before our arrixal. and after one night s])ent within its mammoth arms, we carefully carried it out-door, poured kerosene in all its cracks and corners, and left it for several nights to the tender mercies of Jack Frost until micrdSC " )])ic examination ])ro ed it tminhabited by nightly marauders. You notice 1 ha e not mentioned chairs. — well, we have a few. such as the ' are, some that were sent from America in days gone b_ - and show the wear of }ears. To the east of the house are the laundr}-, the woodhouse, and a chicken- yard; and we have a cellar in the hill-side at the rear. INI} real experiences began with the advent of the house-boy. who cares for the house and does the washing and ironing, and of the coolie, who does all outside work, such as bringing water and wood, and building the fires. They had never worked for an American and had very little idea of the rank of the American w oman who is a trifle above a man ' s cattle, you see. What I said had to be repeated and repeated, and finally I would walk around after them until they began to understand that I meant them to do what I said, when 1 said it. I have a paper on the wall and write down every new word I learn, so that we may begin to understand each other. As I write. I hear the sound of the Chinese drivers coming in from Chittabalbie with the big wagons, loaded with supplies from America, and I trust some home letters for us in the mail bag. December 25. 1904. " Altho our paths be far apart, The same blue heavens bend Above us both, the same stars shine This Christmas night, dear friend. This verse has been in m ' mind all these days, which are fraught with many thoughts of friends far away. But we had a real Christmas tree, in this benighted land where Santa Claus is a stranger. There are four small Am- erican boys here, so we had to plan tor a jolly time. Slumps, with their stores of gifts from which to choose, are lacking, so we made boy dolls dressed in Korean style, balls and stockings of net filled with home-made candy, raisins and a few nuts. The Japanese carpenter made each bov a wheel- l arrow and shovel, and, fortunately, one of the men here had to go to Japan on business and brought back a box of noise-making toys — trum- pets, drums, whistles, and mouth-organs. We darkened the house, lighted the candles on the tree, and led the children into the room just as Santa Claus came bound- ing in. How their eyes did shine !— it paid for all our trouljle, but the Ko- rean house-boy thought the " Megook Kweesin " (American devil) had surely arrived. For the " big folks, " the Chinese cook at the choro-house did his very best, and we had bear and deer-steak and roast pheasant at dinner, while the cakes were as elaborate as any wedding cakes, you ever saw. Our enjoyment of holiday week was somewhat tempered with anxiety, for we heard frequent rumors of the nearness of Chinese bandits; so it was thought best for each American house to keep flying an American flag. As there were not enough to go around, T made one for our flag pole, and am very proud of its eight feet of red-white and 1:)lue. floating here on Korean soil. February 8, 1905. You ask if I don ' t get very lonesome here. Why. I don ' t have time for that, between going out for meals, and coming back to look around and see what the house-servants have been doing while I was gone. One has to be ever on the alert to keep one ' s belongings ; for the natives feel that they have a i)erfect right to anything they can walk off with undiscovered. Such strange sights are to be seen everywhere ! Todav as we came home from lunch, we saw Ye Rong Sam. Mayor of Saggari. riding on a hurro. i)recedcd by a bugler, and followed by a host of men shouting. We found that he was to be presented by a messenger from the Emperor with the ])apcrs that would make him a lord, and all his friends were in ' ited U his house. We felt that we mis ht come in that class; s j we followed with the rest. When we arrived at his house, he invited us tu stand under the canopy with him, which we did as long as we could endure the fumes of tobacco, whiskey, and incense. The gorgeous robes and the evolutions of the master of ceremonies, as he invoked the blessings of the gods, appealed to the eye, while drums and fifes made the ears ring. A few days ago in Puk Chin on market-day, we saw- two sedan-chairs bedecked with white streamers go into the inclosure of a large house. (Jur curiosity led us to follow until we saw a bride in all her wedding finery, most conspicuous of which was the mass of hair built u]) and out from her head like two wings, and covered with beautiful siher and ename ' ornaments. Market day, which comes every fifth day, brings people in from near and far, loaded with goods to barter. E erything is carried on the back, even to pigs with their four feet tied together. Xaturall} ' we women enjoy going to market ; but, as there are thousands of Koreans. Chinese, and Japanese in the market place, many of whom have never seen a white woman, it is not thought best for us to go without a masculine protector, and who wants to go shopping with a man dogging one ' s footsteps, a long- staff in his hand to keep the inquisiti e natixe at a proper distance? .March 10, 1 X)6. It is really decided that we start for home next month, and we are planning for that happy time. Al- though we have enjoyed the novelty of life here ; yet we welcome the thought of seeing America once more. The Chinese here have sent out to the Great Wall for fire-crackers to properly celebrate our departure ; and the Koreans are making us presents, which we politely decline to receive, as it merely means a return favor. The Japanese Consul has so politely begged me to favor him with my fountain-pen, that I think I will ex- change it for a passport for our party, on our overland trip past the towns garrisoned with Japanese troops. The courtesy invariably shown to us by our Korean friends we shall ever remember, and always pictured in our memory shall we see these glorious mountains, car- peted with purple azaleas, as they are blooming now in the springtime after the snows of a long winter are melted and gone. Mrs. Hertha T. Crawford. A Leaf From the Autobiography of a Fool. I shall nc cr forget the hrst time 1 discuxered that 1 was a fool. It hapi)ene(l this a -: ( n a certain Hallowe ' en night, we had religiously earned out all the tinie-honMred customs of the evening, from draping the town clock-tower with wagon wheels, and the telegraph poles with gates, to painting l ' rexie " s white horse a l eautiful pea-green with pink stripes. That latter was a hard job. too, beliexe me. We had to feed the old nag about a bushel of oats to keep him quiet during the process, and Prexie came within an ace of catching us in the act when he came out to see that everything was al l right in the barn for the night. We just had time to turn out the lantern and dive behind some barrels when we heard him coming. Fortunately we had just finished the half of the animal next to the wall, so I ' rexie didn ' t notice anything wrong when he glanced in. We were in such a hurry to finish after that, that we weren ' t careful about the stripes, and they didn ' t match the other side, and that horse was the funniest looking beast I ever saw in my life when we got thrtnigh with him. After we had put a safe distance between us and the dangerous vicinity of the amazing creature we had e olved, we decided to divide our forces, two of us going in one direction and two in the opposite, in search of further adventure, and see who could tell the biggest tale next day. Ed and I started out with no idea of what we should do, wdien I happened to think of Sandy. Sandy had been holding himself aloof from us in a most aggravatingly superior manner ever since the fair Anabel had smiled on him. and allowed him to call on ' her every Friday night. Anabel was Prexie ' s daughter, so we didn ' t mention our Hallowe ' en plans to Sandy. Xow, this gentleman had but a few days before this, acquired a new pair of striped trousers, wdiich were the pride of his heart. It didn ' t take me many minutes to imi)art ni}- brilliant idea to Ed, and we took the short cuts to Sandy ' s rooms, joyously anticipating the beautiful sight wdiich would greet his sorrowfully admiring gaze when the morning breeze unfurled his stri])ed trousers from the church steeple, to say nc thing of the much-needed amusement it would afford the good people of the town. When we arrived at the house. Ed stood against the wall under the window, and I, being the lighter, clindoed from his shoulders through the c ])vn wiuflow into the room. I stood verv still for a moment, but Sandy ' s sonorous breathing re-assured me and I began a hunt for the trousers. It was as dark as Hades in the room and in half a minute I had fallen over a chair wdth a crash that awakened my victim. M ' hands were on the trousers, though, and I promptly jumped out of the window with them, onto the soft turf beneath. Ed had basely fled and I was now obliged to run for my life, for Sandy had lost no time getting out of the window after me, and I was no match for Sandv in a fight, and besides T didn ' t want to lose the trousers nor hax ' e him find out who had stolen them. Away we went tearing through the dim starlight night, Sa ndy following me swiftly and silenth- like a ghost, " with his night-gown at half-mast. " Up one street and dcn n another of the sleepy Httle town we raced. I was training on him and at last by dodginj - np a dark alley and vanlting over a tence into some one " s back yard 1 managed to lose him. I lay still in the grass for a few minntes. then got up and started across the yard intending to go out the front way. when suddenly a huge white bull-dog loomed before me. He jumped at me. l)ut 1 dodged behind a large apple tree, which stood conveniently near, and swung myself up into its branches, not, however, before he had made another spring and caught the toe of one of the tennis shoes which I had worn for the night ' s work. He hung on with a death- like grip and was about to pull me down when the lace broke, mv foot came free, and he fell with a thud, which did my heart good to hear. I took off my other shoe and hit him with it as hard as I could, but that only made him more furious, and he made desperate efforts to climb the tree. For- tunately he was not the barking kind, and I wasn ' t either, so we hadn ' t made much noise to disturb the inmates of the house. I was particularly anxious that they should sleep on peacefidly because this was the chemistrv professor ' s yard, and I thought he would probably hate to be disturbed. Anyway, I didn ' t want to be the one to disturb him. because I was verv well aware that lie had some well-founded suspicions regarding certain embarrassing matters in which I had had a hand. Also I was conscious of several conspicuous dabs of pink and green paint on my coat and trousers, and I feared that if he saw me now and later compared notes with the other Prof, (he of the pea-green horse) I should not be able to satisfactorily explain my innocence. So I sat still and watched the dog try to climb the tree until he realized that it was a hopeless job. At last he sat down di- rectly beneath me in a resigned but confident manner, which seemed to sav that he didn ' t particularlv care whether I came down immediately to be devoured or put it oft ' until later, but — I decided to do the latter. The wind grew cold, my feet went to sleep and my head nearly did like- wise until I feared that I should fall off the limb into those waiting jaws beneath. My position became more and more uncomfortable. 1 couldn ' t see a thing humorous in the situation, and when I began to specidate on what would probabl} ' happen if I had to sit tliere until daylight brought Prof, to the rescue, it made m} ' head swim until I nearly fell oft ' my perch. Wrapped in despair and Sandy ' s pants. I at there for many centuries re- viewing my past life, and the more I thought, the worse I felt. My past didn ' t seem to afford much material for complacent and cheerful meditation, but I couldn ' t stop mv thinking apparatus in its wild career. It was having its inning now while it had me up a tree and helpless, and was making up for lost time at the rate of about sixty miles a minute. When I found I couldn ' t stop it. I decided to have it out with it. and find out what manner of animal I might be, by classifying all my past deeds under the four head- ings, good, bad, brilliant, idiotic. I began, but the process grew more and more painful. Before I ' d gotten more than two-thirds through, the idiotic column had the good column beaten by about two hundred and seventeen to six. the bad column, was running the idiotic a close second, and the bril- liant couldn ' t even be mentioned as an " also-ran. " It was then, as T stared at those results, that the awful thought forced itself upon me that I was a fool. It struck in upon my consciousness with a dull sickening thud that iiiadi ' mc loiiLi 111 creep away to die alone. lUil I couldn ' t even do that. That di ' .n was deiennined to assist at the funeral. J drew Sandy ' s trousers closer aixuit nie and groaned, " O wad some power the giftie gie us to see oursel ' s as ilhers see us. " I wondered if others saw me as I saw myself, and I was sincerely thankful that it was still very dark. 1 wondered if the world iiail me branded as a fool. On the whole, 1 decided it did not. I had my tioubts about Prof, but as to the rest of the world I felt pretty safe. Stt far ' as 1 knew, 1 had never been mentioned as a suitable applicant for admission to the Institution for the Feeble-Minded. This thought cheered me somewdiat and 1 then and there decided that my object in life from now on would be to keep the world in ignorance of the awful truth. I would do something — write a book on the nervous system of the Hydra or discover the South Pole, and so blind people to the hideous fact. While I comforted myself with these reflections and planned my future, I was suddenly roused to a realization that dawn was coming. Dimly I could discern my tormentor lying at the foot of the tree. He was asleep. ' erv slowly, very quietly, I crept as far out on the limb as I dared toward the end farthest from him and nearest the fence, and dropping gently to the ground, was over the fence before he could catch me. As I safely entered my room, still thinking of my sad discovery, suddenly a brilliant thought came to me. It was such an unusual occurrence that it created (|uite a commotion in the place where the brain ought to be. The thought was this — I had often heard it said that it takes a smart man to know he ' s a fool. Now I knew I was a fool, therefore I must be smart. That thought saved me from despair, and in the buoyancy of the relief which followed I soared among the clouds of lofty ideas, and from the height of my superior knowledge I looked pityingly down on the rest of poor humanity who have not sense enough to know they are fools. I smiled indulgently as I thought of my classmates and even of Prof., and murmured. ' " Where ignorance is bliss — " I had lost interest in Sandy ' s trousers, so later in the day I bribed a small boy to take a package to his room at an hour when T knew he was out on a still hunt for them. " Isn ' t it funnv what a difference just a few hours make L. C. W. The Eruption of Mt. Evil Eye ■ ' Years ago, Senor. an Indian l)oy, a servant in the home of |osefanos, the proudest, noblest family in Satello, — not only dared to love Carmela Josefano. the belle of the Pueblo. ])ut dared to try to win her love. She laughed and scoffed at the presumption of the boy. She forgot Indian nature is a mingling of passionate love and hatred, and merelv laughed when her lover feared the Indian ' s treachery ; but when her wedding dav came and the bridegroom did not appear, she learned too late, the depth of Indian hatred and revenge. The Indian boy fled to the mountains. Years later, a hunter found him dying in a little hut on the side of Mt. Colima. With his dying breath he cursed the people of Satillo and prophesied that some day Satillo would be completely destroyed by an eruption from Mt. Colima. He told the hunter that the evil s])irits had appointed him to watch over Satillo. and choose the time when such an eruption would bring the greatest disaster. Since then the mountain has been known as " Mt. Evil Eye. " " " Juanita. what a lot of gruesome legends yotir peoi)le have. Surelv du do not believe in this foolish superstition! Look at the mountain now. way off there in the distance. Can you imagine evil spirits hovering around that majestic, lofty ])eak " " And Edwin Marlow extended his arm in the direction of Mt. Evil Eye. yit. Evil Eye had been as dreaded a word to Juanita Besano in her infancy as " Black man " to an English child, and now it presented a grim, lowering, threatening look rather than the rugged loftiness that it revealed to the American beside her. She half shuddered as her eyes rested on it, and she answered very simply and soberly: " Si, Senor, T have never seen the Indian spirit, but many people in Satillo have. Pedro Alvarez has seen the spirit that haunts the place, and Pedro does not lie, Senor. " At the mention of Pedro, Edwin Marlow lost interest in the subject they were discussing. " Pedro, " " Pedro. " That name was on her lips far too frequenth for -Edwin ' s liking. Juanita saw his gloomy expression, and instantly her serious mood vanished. ' ith a woman ' s intuition, she knew that he was not impressed with the proof that she had given, but the name of Pedro had produced the change. She smiled sweetly. " You do not like Pedro? Pedro is mv friend. You must like him, Senor. " Edwin laughed at the childish command, for he was reminded of " Love me, love mv dosT. " ■ " All ri. ln. luaniia. I ' ll cherish im ill feelings toward your friend unless he attempts tn steal a aluable treasure from nie. " There was no mistaking the h ok that accompanied the words, but juanita ' s uplifted face presented the innocence of a babe. " Pedro steal! Senor! " He made no attempt to explain his words, but looked at the bewitching face so close to his own, and — well Dona Besano ' s sudden appearance less- ened the proximitA ' of the temi)ting little face, and averted the danger. 11. Tuanita took one last lingering glance in the mirror, and her dark eyes gleamed with satisfaction at the dusky-haired, beautifully dressed girl that smiled back at her. The Dona IJesano was cross: first, because she did not want to go to the dance, second, because juanita had kept her waiting. Rut her grumbling was silenced when Juanita came running down the steps gaily humming " Los Gaviotes, " and snatching a red rose which she tucked in her dark hair. The Dona ' s stern face softened and the piercing, black eyes glowed with parental pride. The dance was at the home of Dona Patrona. Edwin Alarlow was among the invited guests, but as he stood by the doorway of the patio watching Juanita, that haughty little cjueen ruling her court, graciously conferring favors here, and laughingly denying there, he mnodily wished he had not come. She seemed utterly unaware of his existence. Why had he come? He was unacquainted with the dances df her people. " Seiiorita. may I hope that } " (iu will give me the excpiisite pleasure of the waltz with you? " Edwin started at the words of the cou])le near him. Instantl} ' he strode across the room to where Juanita sat surrdunded by gallants. She recog- nized him with a rather cr)ndescending glance, but tindaimted he edged his way close to her side, and then whispered, " Juanita, promise me the w ' altz. Save the American dance for your Americano. " She heard the eager whisjier. but mereh ' shrugged her shoulders, and an indifferent " cjuizos " was the only satisfaction he recei ' ed. He stepped out into the i)atio, willing to wait on the bare hope that " quizos " extended to him. He caught glimpses of her through the door- way. What grace! What beauty! What witchery! To Edwin she seemed the embodiment of perfect womanhood. She possessed the finest education that an American school coidd aft ' ord. and nature had endowed her with its beauty and its charms of capricious moods. I- dwin determined that tonight he would face the little coquette to make a decision. TT ' - realized that he had spent more hours in i-)leasure than work during the past few weeks, and had s])ent more time ex])lorino- the depths of the nature of this maddening, puzzling, little beauty, than exjjhjring the country that he, as mining expert, had l)een sent to examine. The dreamy strains of " Sobre las ( )las " recalled his wondering thoughts, and he hastened to Juanita, only to see her coolly waltz away with Pedro, with a teasing glance from beneath her long lashes. The blood rushed to Edwin ' s face. They were laughing, Pedro and Juanita, laughing at his discomfiture! Following his rosy-hued thoughts in the patio, Juanita ' s treat- ment aroused the deep, silent anger characteristic of a nature " slow to wrath. " Informing his hostess that he must depart in order to leave earlv in the morning for a business trip to the Conejos country, he l)ade her a hasty good-night. There was another valtz later in the evening. Juanita looked expect- antly toward the patio. She was ready to graciously relent ; but the Ameri- cano did not appear. She walked slowly toward the doorwav with a little pucker in her brows. Pedro came over to her and eagerlv claimed the dance. With a glance half spiteful, half wistful, toward the dimly lighted patio, she glided back among the happy throng of dancers — with — Pedro. When Juanita and Dona Besano bade their hostess good night, the two older women stood conversing in low tones, while Pedro assisted Juanita with her wraps. The smile died from Juanita ' s face as she oxer- heard the words, " The Americano? You think he loves Juanita, no? You do not know these Americanos. They seldom love our girls seriously. Sefior Marlovv is entertaining; he finds our girls fascinating, but in !o -e? No. He has had pleasure and amusement. ell and good. Xow he begins work. He leaxes in the morning for a business trip ( f several weeks, to the Conejos country. " Doha Patrona had a rather malicious intent in telling this news to Dona Besano. She had a daughter of her own and resented the devoted attention of the handsome American to Juanita. Doha Besano wondered at Juanita ' s unusual silence on the way home, but she would have been amazed had she seen Juanita on reaching her room, stamp her little foot, clench her hands, and vow by her patron saint that the Americano should come l)ack, and then, — cry herself to sleep. Juanita ]:)assed a restless, miseral le morning. Al)Out noon she was ainly endeavoring to rest, when she heard Pedro ' s tap. tap. tap at the shutters. She paid no attention, but the insistent tajjping continued, and Pedro called. " Juanita, Juanita ! come outside cpiickly. " There was a tense excitement in his words that reached Juanita she gave a startled " Que as. " " and stepped outside . Pedro ' s face was ghostly. " Juanita, look at Mt. Evil Eye! The cursed projihesy is being fulfilled. Madrc (Ic Dies! W c will all be lcsti " () cd. Look at the smoke! The people are ])reparin - to Hee. jiianita. eonie! " With blanched face and dry li])s Juanita called hoarsely, " Madre! Madre! " Then a second thouj ht nearly stopped her heartbeats. The Ameri- cano! AU»ne! afoot in that very district! He was doomed. " I ' edro, look after Madre. I entrust her to you, " and before the dum- founded Pedro could realize her intent, she ran to the stables, saddled her pony and galloped toward Mt. Evil Eye. Her courage nearly failed her at the sight of that heavy portentous cloud overhanging the crest of the mountain, but she half closed her eyes, and urged her faithful pony to greater speed. She had no idea where in that vast district she would hnd the American. She had but one thought. He was there somewhere, and in danger. Her staunch little horse would carry them l)oth from the field of danger, or die in the attempt. Nearer and nearer Juanita drew to Mt. Evil Eye. The billows of smoke seemed, to her frightened gaze, to conceal the malignant features of an Indian. There was not a human being in sight; just that hovering blackness a])ove the solitary peak, the vast, dreary country stetching out on every side like the ocean about some lone island. The tears fell unchecked down juanita ' s cheeks, and the pon} stumbled along unguided. Edwin Marlow was about five miles to the north of Mt. Evil Eye, ex- amining an old, abandoned mine. When he came out of the mine, he was amazed to see the peak of Mt. Evil E}e wrapped in a cloud of smoke. " The deuce! Is it possible after all the years I have been camping I didn ' t completely extinguish my fire this morning? And that pit of oil! why that fire will burn for days. The fire can do nf) damage, luckily, because there is no shrubbery to carry it beyond the peak. " He laughed as a sudden thought struck him, " Those superstitious idiots will think the old Indian has chosen their last hour. " Then as he remembered that Juanita, too, believed in this legendary superstition, his face sobered, was it not his duty to return and allay her fears? So perfectly did this accord with his inclinations of the entire day, that he started immediately toward Satillo. When he passed near Mt. Evil Eye on the west side, he was startled to hear the neighing of a horse. Xothing was visible, however. Walking hur- riedly to the south side of the mountain, he fairly ran into horse and rider. Incredulously he exclaimed, " Juanita! " and seeing the tense, white face, he lifted the almost unconscious girl from the saddle. " Senor, " she whispered, " we must hasten from here. The Indian ' s curse. Vou remember? " and she raised her tensified eyes to the smoke above. Edwin ' s face lit up with wonder and joy. " Juanita, do you mean you ha ' e come to save me? " " Si, Senor, " she replied simjily. Reverentiv and tenderly, he clasped the brave, weary, frightened girl in his strong arms. Marie Holwav, ' 11. The Shattered Romance " Gals you should have l)ecn at the .i anie this afternoon, " exclaimed the irrepressible Adele, from her stand in the center of the njom. Adele always said " gals " despite the remonstrances of the facult - and her own friends. " Well, " she pouted, " aren ' t any of you going to listen to me? " At this the l)Ooks dropped simultaneously and ten eyes were fixed on the speaker. One girl started to answer, but stopped suddenly when Adele, after pressing a barricading kiss on her lips, said, " Xow, Jen, don ' t you dare ask me how the game was, ' cause you know very well, I don ' t know beans about foot-ball. I don ' t think it was generally considered a good game by our side tho, ' cause we didn ' t win. But I haven ' t had such a good time since — but I mustn ' t say when, ' cause then you ' ll know all about what I ' m going to tell you. " She paused a moment while she threw herself face downward on the bed. Then, resting her little chin in the cup of her hand, she continued ' to address her interested listeners, for evervbody be- came interested when Adele had a story. " You see, gals, I didn ' t really mean to go to the game, until Fred sent me a ticket, and the dearest little note about how much better he could play if he knew I was on the bleachers. Isn ' t that just like Fred. So, of course, I just had to go. " " I sat down next to some ' Soph ' gals, and thought I was just going to be bored to tears, and I was at first ; ' cause goino- to a foot-ball game always makes me feel creepy, especially when Fred ' s in the game, and the fellows get all tangled up in a bunch. " " After th e kick-oiT, I began to watch the people on the bleachers, and happened to notice a girl in about the fifth row above me. My dears, she was certainly pretty — prettier than any girl has a right to be at that time of day — and she was sitting in the most tense, absorbed attitude. I pretty near stared her out of countenance, but she was so interested in the game, she never noticed me. " " Mv, but she was beautiful. Her hair was black and wavy, not curly like yours Grace, but something like Ruth ' s, only much prettier — for goodness sakes, don ' t any of you dare to tell Ruth I said that, she ' s so horribly touchy about her hair — and it was done in three big pufTs on the back of her head. Her mouth was just like a red rosebud — I know that ' s prosaic, but it was just the same, and she had the most exquisite coloring. I guess it was even prettier than usual, ' cause she was so excited about the game, you know. But it was her eyes that fascinated me — they were simply glorious ! Great big gray eyes they were — think of it gals, gray eyes with black hair, and her lashes were black too, and curled away from her eyes so they looked like, just like — oh, you know, just like a black jet fringe only that ' s a fierce comparison. " " Well anyway, her big gray eyes were fixed on that field like everything in life depended on that game, and gals, I actually began to wish — but don ' t ever let Fred know, will you? — I began to wish that the Vermonters would win. " She finished in an awed whisper. Shifting her little chin from cme hand to the other, she continued. " I i;-()t so iiUercslcd in that i al 1 just had to j;ct nearer to her. so during the next down, while the fellows were untangling themselves, I got up and kind of aindessh- wandered up the bleaehers. and sat down right next to ni - pretl - gal. And, do -on know dears, she was just as prett} ' close to her as she was far away. " " " 1 hadn " t been sitting by her very long, when the boys began yelling like made, and my gal just breathed one word. What do you think it was? Just. " Dandv. " Vell. I was so disgusted I could have cried, until I heard the V ' ermonters fairly screaming, " Go it. Dandy! Go it Dandy! Dandy Dandv! Dandv! ' When one of our men downed Dandy, the tears sprang into ni - gal ' s eyes, and I was simply in hea en, " cause I just knew I ' d lightecl on a romance. " " Ttist as 1 began to plan the romance out, the first half came to an end, and my gal sank back, with half-closed eyes, just as tho she had been playing the game, and was completely exhausted. She di(ln " t notice me so T was going to plan out the domance during the interval between the halves, wdien Btid Jepsen came and sat down by me. Alaybe you think I wasn ' t mad! Before I stopped to think, I said, ' Aren ' t our boys doing splendid? " " You should have seen the look he gave me — whew, it ' s a wonder I ' m still alive- and then he just spit out the single word, ' Rotten, ' like it was a nasty pill, and started to abuse the coach. You know, they always do blame the coach when a game goes wrong. " ' A ' hen Bud had just got fairly launched on his subject, the whistle blew, and the fellows came trotting out on the field. hile they lined up for the kick-off, I turned to look at my gal. and she was just as interested as ever. Then I l)egan to plan my romance. I thought that maybe she was in love with Dandy, and he didn ' t know it, and she was sitting there frightened to death for fear he ' d be hurt in the game. But that didn ' t suit me. It was too unsatisfactory. So I thotight and thought a long while over dozens of plans. Finally I decided she had promised to elope with him that night, if the A ermonters won. But that didn ' t suit me either, ' cause 1 never could understand why people would stoop to eloping in the dead of night. It always did make me think they were afraid they ' d lose courage, if they looked one another square in the eye, and realized what a sneaking thing they were doing. I had to throw that plan away, just like I had the rest. Then I thought she ' d just promised to marr}- him. if they won, and I felt sure that was quite a concession if it came from her, ' cause she looked so terribly independent. " " Just as I had about decided that I had struck the right solution to my romance, even before I had time to change my mind, I heard the V er- monters yelling, ' Dandy! Dandy! Dandy! ' just like that at the top of their voices. When T looked, I saw a great big fellow tearing like wild down the field, with a whole mob of fellows after him. Gals, do you know, I actually realized that he was trying for a touch-down, but maybe I wouldn ' t have known it if the gal hadn ' t whispered in a tense voice. ' Dandy; a touch- down, they haven ' t scored yet Dandy — oh, do, do make a touch-down, ' and he did, gals, he did. He fairly flew over the line, and the bleacher s went mad. He had barelv gotten across, when the whistle blew, and the i aine was over. Of course the Vermontcrs made a dive for Dandy, and brought him on their shoulders up to the grand stand. And, gals, he was simply adorable, even in a horrid foot-ball suit. It didn ' t take me a minute to decide that he could have my gal. And then I happened to think — why g;als, I didn ' t know her name and how ever was I to find out about the wedding, if I didn ' t first know her name. That settled it, I just had to know, so I actually walked up to one of the Vermonter 1:)oys — now, if ycui ' re all going to be so shocked, I won ' t finish — well there, listen. I smiled, and said. ' Pardon me, but would you kindly tell me who that dark girl in pink is? Her face is so familiar. " " ' " The l:)oy looked in the direction I indicated, and exclaimed, ' By Jove, that ' s Dandy ' s sister. Excuse me, please, I want to speak to her. Didn ' t know she was back from College. ' — Now, gals, what do you think of that? " Louise Foster. a WKo ' s Hc-A? A Picture Hat and a Picture Sho v Al Ruwertun wandered aimlessly down LSruadway. He was to meet Harrv Wright, his college chum, at six; but it was only five. How should he while away an hour? He considered the question as he strolled down the street. The name " Happy Hour " of a five-cent moving picture show caught his eye. He w-as an aristocratic fellow and considered this class of a theater, rather plebian, nevertheless, after a moments ' hesitation, he walked up to the window, rather haughtily flung over a dollar and bought — a five-cent ticket. It was verv dim as he entered the theater. He groped his way down several aisles, then hurriedly seated himself; but poor Al rose more quickly than he had sat down. A low cry of dismay, and the sight of a smashed, shapeless hat, told him the story. He, Alfred Henry Rowerton, " Old Proud " — as his " frat " brothers called him — had committed the heinous offense of sitting on a ladv ' s hat ! and in a five-cent moving picture show ! For a moment he gazed speechless at the injured hat and its fair owner whose averted face only partially concealed the tears of vexation, and then he stammered inane apologies w ' hich were curtly accepted. Still. Al continued to pour forth senseless phrases until he realized they w ere falling on deaf ears, and then he subsided into miserable silence. He felt like rushing out of the place, but instead gazed unseeingly at the moving pictures, occasionally stealing covert glances at his neighbor ' s profile. After a kidnaped girl was safely restored to her parents, a lover ' s quarrel satisfactorily settled, and a villian disposed of properly, there was an inter- mission. The girl at Al ' s side looked dubiously at her hat, then gave a vigorous punch to the inverted crown, a gentle poke to the crushed ribbons, and a loving pat to the ruffled feathers. A rather vicious jabbing of the hatpin£, a little tilt of the head to test the security of the hat, a furtive peep in the mirror drawn from the recesses of a purse, and the girl was ready to depart. Xow that hat framed the bewitching face. Al thought it looked stun- ning, and as his masculine eye could not detect any lasting damages, the enormity of his crime seemed lessened, and his spirits rose a trifle. He was absorbed in the fascinating contemplation of the mysteries of skillful veil adjustment, when the w-ords of the popular piece being sung suddenly pierced their way to his consciousness, " Don ' t be angry, Mabel. " Al did not know the name of the girl beside him. and having paid no at- tention to the words preceding the chorus, he had no idea what unpardon- able sin the other fellow had committed, but the words came with singular ap])ropriateness, and as he stood up to let the girl pass out, his eyes flashed a penitent, but smiling " Don ' t be angry, Mabel " straight to the haughty blue ones. Her face flushed unmistakably, and Al thought he caught a momentary flicker of amusement, and keen appreciation of the aptness of the song. As Al left the theater he looked uj) at the sign " Happy Hour " with a peculiar smile. ' hen he walked leisurely into the station to meet Harrv Wright, he found that individual walking about in half-fretful impatience. " Al. where in the world have vriu been man? I ' ve been waiting half an hour for you and we ' ve missed the car the girls went down on. liess said she and the girls just couldn ' t wait, they had to fix up before supper, or some such nonsense. Say, old fellow, you should see Edith Morrison, the stunning girl Bess has invited to the house party especially for your benefit. You know that blessed, little matchmaking sister of mine! She confided last year that she thought you were well nigh hopeless, but here she is trying once more to pierce your armor of indifference. " As they rode out to the suburbs, Harry l)antered Al about Grace, Jessie, and Margaret, — girls whom he had been courteously attentive to during previous house parties, but whom he had failed to pay the devoted attention that his romantic hostess expected of him. Al laughed and joked with his friend, but never mentioned the afternoon incident. L ' pon entering the hall of the country home, a pretty sight greeted them. A crowd of girls and young men were gathered about a big grate- fire in the large, old-fashioned parlor. Some sat Turkish fashion on the floor, their bright faces flushed from proximity to the fire; some leaned comfortably back in rocking chairs; some reclined in unconventional, but graceful, attitudes on the lounge. The scene bespoke comfort, enjoyment, and good comradeship. The crowd were laughing uproariously as Al and Harr walked into the room. There was a chorus of greetings to them both. Al had a laugh- ing rejoinder for all, but in the midst of a bright sally to his hostess, he halted abruptly, and noticing t he direction of his gaze, she whispered ex- citedly, " Isn ' t she a queen, Al? Come let me introduce you. " In another moment Al Rowerton was presented to Edith Morrison. Bess W ' right won- dered at the peculiar expression of their faces. " Harry, you and Al are just in time to hear what happened to Edith this afternoon, or rather, what happened to her hat. For your benefit, I ' ll give a synopsis of what has preceded. Time, — late this afternoon ; place. — five- cent moving picture show. Scene I. Entrance of a fair maiden partially visible beneath a huge hat bedecked with plumes and ribbons, — put a handkerchief around Edith ' s mouth if she spoils my tale with such loud protestations again, Harry — Simultaneous with the fair damsel ' s entrance, is the appear- ance of the words, " Ladies, kindly remove your hats! " accompanied with tremendous applause by the men. When this polite command makes a third persistent appearance, the picture hat is reluctantly removed and placed on a chair. Scene II. Entrance of a man whose presence is un noticed by the girl until she sees him drop into, and rise out of the chair beside her. like a Jack-in-a-box, and then stand gazing ruefully at her flat- tened, shapeless hat. The third scene remains to be told. Did you stab the villian with }our long hatpins, Edith? Come now and finish the tale. ' e want to hear the rest, don ' t we, Al? " A smile lurked in Edith ' s eyes at this appeal to Al Rowerton, but she insisted that her story was finished, and to two people there the call of " Dinner " was unusually welcome. After dinner Al was asked to sing for the crowed. He hesitated and Bess said, " Edith has heard about your singing, Al, won ' t you sing something to please her? " He protested that his abilitv in this line had been overrated bv nis friends, but he would d(j his best to please her. His hands wandered idly over the ke3-s, then with a roguish glance at lulith Morrison he sang " Don ' t be angry. Mabel, " to the amazement of all except Edith Morrison who rightly interpreted his roguish glance in her direction. A vear later the same " set " were assembled at the country home. Edith stood in Bess ' right ' s bed-room in the midst of an admiring circle of girls. " Isn ' t it a l)eautv ! " " So 1:)ecoming, Edith! " " All those lovely plumes! " and Edith smiled and said, " Yes. I am proud of mv husband ' s good taste. He bought this hat to-dav to replace the one he half-ruined a year ago, but the dear boy insists that the old hat is to be as carefull}- treasured as the new. " Marie Hohvav, ' 11.

Say, and that Capitola luncheon the year we were Senior B ' s — let ' s see that was in nineteen ten wasn ' t it? " Merry little Jane, although five years had elapsed since her graduation from the old school, jumped to her feet and spun around in the middle of the floor. Phil, still the more reserved of the two smiled at the remem- brance and said, " That was fun, wasn ' t it? But, Jane, I remember the details just faintly. Do tell me all about them — that ' s a dear, and let me sit here and try to relive those happy days. The worst of our troubles then was in making an imaginary register where your last month ' s salary didn ' t depend on its accuracy. Go on, dear, and I will sit hear and listen to that steady talker of yours. " Given the floor all to herself, Jane was infinitely happy and burst forth with — " ' hy. Phil, don ' t you rememl er how we crowded that immense class of ours into Room V every noon for days before the luncheon, and how we practiced those yells and songs? How did that one on Air. Shepherdson ' Social efificiency, if you please E. W. Shepherdson for Senior B ' s. " T believe T have those yells in my old fat Agriculture Xote Book. " and here she paused a moment. Then apparently an inspiration had struck her, for she exclaimed. " Hoe ])otato, hoe potato. Hoe, hoe, hoe, Palmer, Palmer, Oh. oh. oh! " When she regained her voice after laughing she continued. " And. Phil, that .Serpentine ! You couldn ' t hear a thing for the racket we made. Didn ' t the Faculty look funny dancing along with us. I ' .ut do you remember the dining room? The peo])le w ' ho decorated that corner of ours certainly knew how. I can just shut ni}- eyes and see that Senior Design, made out of red geraniiuns. lint we must admit that some of the other classes did look pretty good. And the noise! From the time we started in with our " Hi. hi. hikus. " mitil we finishc(l with — " Senior As, w c liate to see you leavint;-, Senior As. for you our hearts are i rievini - : When you are resting in the city schools. Senior As, Senior As. Think of us among- the little angels Trying- hard t » train their little brain cells. Tell us truly, tell us truly. Are there any more in school like these? ' 1 know there wasn ' t a girl there who ate a bite of that delectable luncheon. None of them stopped yelling- long- enough to hear the other classes. Then when they tried to take that picture! My what a time they had trying to get us to shut our mouths. But they finally took it w hen we had our mouths open. It was a jolly afifair, though, wasn ' t it, Phil? " How they both laughed then for it was fun to talk over those days. " Xow, Jane, you have talked long enough. I don ' t believe you remember that other Y. W. stunt. " " What other one, Phil? " ' l hil was just overjoyed to think that now she could tell Jane something- she had forgotten. " Well you know, " she began, " before Capitola the Y. W. girls gave that ' Jolly-up ' in the gym and told what they had done the year before. " Phil, rousing from her state of revery, " Oh, yes! but you go on and tell me aboitt it. please. " Yes. it was at 3 o ' clock and the crowd just filled the old gyn-i. Those mysterious looking green curtains w ere up and held the expectant gaze of the audience for several minutes. Doesn ' t that sound dramatic, though? She just took time to laugh a minute and hurried on, " At last they were pulled back (the curtains, of course) jerk by jerk, and a real dashing cow- boy, pistol and all, came galloping across the stage. " " Galloping? " interrupted Jane. " Yes. on a saw horse, borrowed from the Kent Stables. His lady love stood coyly on the other side of the stage waiting his arrival. My how the people yelled and shouted — yes, even the Faculty — I mean the Lady Faculty. After the noise died away over the air came the clear high notes of our famous singer, Ethel Ardis. As she sand the two " ' Jane, again interrupting, " l ut vho were these two rough-riders? " " ' hy, didn ' t I tell you? Edna Robinson and Pearl McCloskey. of course. Pearl was the gallant youth and Edna the coy maiden. They acted out the song- and they gave us the most realistic picture of the way things must be out on the prairie. Everyone was just crazy about them. The next stunt, — let ' s see — ah, yes! that real chicken fight. Of course they w ere real chickens but you know the secret leaked out and we found out afterwards that the fowls w ere Anna Clarke and Lorainne Mitchel. The fight was really good, anyway, and as the feather dusters bobbed in the air. it was with difficulty that the Y. W. officers kept the others from staking all they had on the fight. " Then we were favored with an inside peep into the digesti c tract. " " The what? " Well wait and I will explain. It was like this — the eflfect of Mrs. |ji,L:lish ' physioloi y Icclurcs came out in a tight between gastric and the in(Hgestibles bought at the Xornial Book Store. Remember that store ? l- ' irst bread and meat. .Mice I ' .eebe and Alice Rothermal, were put down the (iigesii e tract. A terrible fight ensued but gastric juice came out on top. Saada Sanford. a dill pickle, then tusselled with gastric juice — Agnes Smith. But, finally. Melissa lUair. the hot tamale. was too much for Gastric and she had to give up. That was awfully clever. ■■. college stunt was next — it probably had ne er seen a college but then it was some relation to it. . ow listen — here it is in full : A bunch of Freshman girls were having a spread in their rooms at night. By the wav. the spread was the real stufif — lemon pie, dill pickles, etc. A knock was heard and a wild scramble for hiding places followed. In came Alice Beebe. the stern and the suspicious matron. Can you imagine her being that " Well she was. The spread was there but the girls were not, so she left. Then the Freshies came back — just like Scrubbs. But another interru])ti(m — this time a man. " " A man at Normal ? " " Oh, don ' t get excited, Jane, it was a girl dressed up with her gang of fellows. But Fll tell you she almost made my heart go pit-a-pat. I think 1 can remember who they were — Marie Larter, Agnes Smith, Beth Purcell, and Miriam Elmore were the girls, and Emma Lawhead, sta Eaton, Lenore Zinnamon and Lillian Moss were the fellows. After this Lenore and ' esta were willed the stage to do some fancy jigs. ' ' ' " Could they jig? " interrupted Jane for the ninteenth time. " Well I should say they could. Wish I could see them now. " These very solemn ' Jinks ' wound up with some talks from Capitola and these really were serious. Beside WTnifred Richards. Agnes Smith, Laura Smith, Miss Barnett (or rather what was then Miss Barnett) spoke and I ' m sure the} ' made every one of us want to go to Capitola awful bad. " " Say, Mother, there comes my old chum Phil Withrow, 1 haven ' t seen her in ages. " Jane was seated on the window seat leisurely gazing out of the window when she saw her old " cronv " coming towards the house. She was glad to see her again and ran to the door to let her in. " Well. Phil, you old dear. 1 haven ' t seen you since that day I was at your house and we were talking over our Normal school days, " exclaimed Jane, hurrying Phil into the spacious room. " And 1 was so kind of homesick that that was just what I came over for, " gasped I ' hil all out of breath. " I just felt as though we hadn ' t half finished our talk that day so why not come over and complete it to-dav. So here I am. " She was so excited she had not noticed Mrs. Winchester. Jane ' s mother, at all until now as she glanced around the room. " Go right on talking girls. " insisted the elderly lady. " For I love to hear a ' ou and you seem so happy. " " All right. " chimed in both of the girls, as the} ' fell on the htige couch and half 1:)uried theniselves with pillows. " Where did we leave off, Phil? " " Well. 1 don ' t know but T want to commence with that S enior A party — that uiit ' we !4a e wIumi we were Senior Us for tlie ,L;ra(luating class. But, Phil, }-ou tell it. Mother has enough of my talk and would love to hear someone else for a change. " ' " If you really want me to then. I will, if I can remember. I know, — the gym, the same old place, was decorated in pennants from stacks of different schools, llien _ - )u know some of the girls gave that farce. " The (irecian Bend ' . " " Well. I should say I do remember that! They only ])racticed a week and it was good, too. But go on with your story. " " Where did I leave off? Oh, yes! I ' ll never forget Sade Fox as Xora. She always was dandy and such a help to our class. There was Pearl Mc- Closky, again. You know she was supposed to be the mother of Jenny ( Mar- garet Sinclair) and Kitty (Edna RolDinson). They were all just great. How they shocked Dorothy Brokaw. the city girl, by suggesting w-ashing to her. Dorothy had the Grecian Bend and she looked exactly like a 16th Century beauty. Who else? Oh. Aunt Debby, Louise Foster, of course, always losing things and talking about her numerous husbands. Every one said Louise missed her calling. Ella Morton, a school girl, looked as tho ' she had been brought up from the training school. Honestly, I don ' t see how those girls did so well. Jane couldn ' t stand it any longer, so said — " And then we danced. " " Xow. Jane, I am telling this so you just let me finish. I should say we did dance. The best part of it was that the floor was waxed. Oh. don ' t get excited ! The Janitor did it. and so that was perfectly all right. As usual the music was good , and everyone had a grand time. Xow. Jane, what do you want to add? " Well you have told everything " except that the Faculty turned out almost in full force as well as in full dress. " The two girls had not been teaching school so long but that they could enjoy a good laugh and this brought it forth. They were quiet a minute and both seemed to be thinking what was next when Jane exclaimed, " The Kids ' Party. " " W hy Jane ! " corrected her mother. " W ell, mother, that is what it was. W e sent out the funniest invitations to the Lady Faculty, written like a child would say it, and we dressed up like children. You know, I believe it was the most fun of all. It cost each one so many pennies to get in and all kinds of things w ere for sale inside. " " Inside wdiat? " in disgusted tone. " The gym, of course. There were ' Suckers, ' animal crackers, lemonade. and candy hearts. " By this time Jane was laughing so just from thinking of the many fvmny things that occurred in the old gym that afternoon that she couldn ' t finish her narration. Phil had relapsed into deep thought from which she awoke in a moment with a jump, heaving such a sigh that Jane said, " W ' hy w hat is the matter Phil ? " " W ' ell that just makes me more homesick than ever and I am going before I get any worse. " So again the girls said good-bye. but this time in not quite such a jolly mood. Organizations ?ili ' s.

" The Association has been organized fourteen years. It has enrolled as its members hundreds of girls, many of whom continue active in their interest and support after graduation. This year the Y. W. C. A. has carried on its work much as in years past. At the Thursday afternoon meetings prominent ministers of the city, members of our Faculty and others have presented subjects of vital interest to Normal girls. The following are some of the subjects dis- cussed; — " " Psychology and Religion, " ' " Jeremiah, the Hebrew Patriot and Socialist. " " " Happiness, " " " The Song of ( )ur Syrian Guest " (a reading). " Paul, the Man of Destiny, " " The Xormal (iirl and the Social Problem, " " The Xormal (iirl and Civics, " and " " The Xormal (iirl and Ethics. " Each term a farewell meeting is held for the Senior A " s. A few of the girls have taken special Bible : tudy under Prof. Hill of L ' . S. C. At the beginning of the vear the Association played the role of assistant hostess to the entering students, helping them matriculate, showing them about the building and serving light refreshments to them. The Association has promoted the social life of the school ])y receptions for the student body and bv socials for smaller groups. We are especiall} " grateful to the girls of Xorthfield Hall and to those of our Faculty women who have opened their homes for these occasions. The Capitola Class Luncheon was uKist successful, five hundred students taking part in the jubilation. The demon- stration r)f enthusiasm surpassed that of any former occasion. The " S ' . W. has i)opularized the school colors by making and selling pen- iiants. The Achisory iJoard ha e given earnest thought and great help to ever ■ part of tlie work. They have made tlie welfare of every girl in school a personal cuncern. In these and in other ways the organization has promoted fellow shi]) among students and l- ' acnlt} " . During the fourteen vears of its working life, the Assocation has more than once proven its right to exist b} ' its good words and good works. We feel that somewhere in its arioits lines of effort, there is opportunity for e er}- girl, whatever her talents and training, to find a place where she can realize her highest self through social scr -ice.

Dear Nell : You wanted to hear what our Glee Club has been doing this year, so I ' m simply going to make this a Glee letter and recount, lor your especial benefit, all of our various escapades, although, really, we have not done nearly as much as last year — didn ' t we have a glorious time then? Of course you knew the first thing we would do in the new year would be to initiate our new members-to-be. The great drawback was the absence of ]Miss Hagan. We hardly knew how to get along with her away, but finally decided to have the ceremonies take place at Echo Park on the afternoon of Friday, September 17th. I dare not tell you all that we did to the new girls, but leave you to guess from your own experi- ence. We took in five girls, Ethel Best, Barbara Fisher, Susanne Gough, Lenore Zinnamon, and Lillian Moss, all dandy girls, and we certainly did things up brown. The spread we gave them would have made a queen envious. Later we took them all out for a boating-trip on the lake. 1 can hear you say that that sounds suspicious, but honestly we didn ' t duck them. The week following the initiation was one of great rejoicing — can you guess why? The lady had returned. And right away we began to practice for a program to be given in December some time in honor of the winter class. The entertainment was not as finished an affair as others we have given, but it was jolly good fun and thoroughly appreciated, as you may guess when I tell you the Assembly Hall, was packed, and about two hundred people stood. The platform was arranged to represent an old negro ' s quarters on a Southern plantation. We manufactured a shanty, old fences around it, and bamboo growing up behind it. Then we had old banana palms and off to one side the finest looking pile of old corn-stalks. Two or three old lanterns decorated the cabin, and just to one side through the bamboo could be seen the " Coppah Moon " (that ' s the name of one of the songs we sang). All of us, dressed as darkies, pickaninies, mammies and just ordinary black folk, stole in to surprise L ' ncle Remus who owned the shanty. " e sat on boxes, barrels, and fences and began our program of " Songs of the South, " with " The Old Kentucky Home. " When L ' ncle Remus appeared, we coaxed him to sing for us, then to play for the picka- ninnies to dance — such a dance ! I just wish you might have seen it, the funniest performance I ever saw. One of the most unique features of the entire entertainment was the introduction of an old colored " aunty " with her pipe and carrying on her head a basket filled with regular down-south molasses pop-corn balls, which were duly distributed to the waiting darkies. Genie W est was " aunty, " so you know all about the pleasure she gave when she related some L ncle Remus ' stories. Another part of the program, one that delighted the audience, was the playing of the banjo by Clara Bentien. Oh ! it was all great fun and how we did hate to have it end. That was the last public performance with ]Miss Hagan as our leader. for she resigned Ikt jxisilitiii. lint it was not the last time we were all to be with her, for we attended a matinee on Saturday afternoon, January 22nd, in her eharj e. The play was ridiculous but we had great fun out of it. At the close of the ])erf()rmance we all w ent to Christopher ' s where a violet tea was served, l verything did look very charming there ; the tables we had had l)een strewn with violets and the i)lace-cards were varied, some decorated with xinlets. some with wild roses, all hand-])ainted b} ' two of the girls. ' I ' liings sort of dragged after this until Miss Stephens, our new director, arri ed. After her arrival, we gave a little program of children ' s songs out at the Iicho Park pra --ground. Alice Beebe and Rosa each sang a series of children ' s songs, and delighted everyone, i)articularly a group of boys who occupied the front seats, and showed their high apjjrobation in many curious wavs. The children gave a little play after our songs and then the audience departed — still we stayed on. We took out several l)oxes of marshmallows and proceeded to toast them over the bright coals in the lovelv open fire-place. My, they were good, and we had great sport powder- ing one another with the fiour of the candy. 1 ' he twentv-fifth dav of March was the date of the graduation of the spring class, when a large number of the club left the school. We sang a couple of songs under the direction of Miss Stephens for the commencement exercises. The next thing for us to do was to immediately find a number of girls to take the place of those who had left us. That was done at once, and on the afternoon of April Eleventh we had a grand old time making life miserable for twelve poor young things. Oi course } ' ou want to know their names — I ' m not going to spare you a bit, so here }()u are — Stella Love- land. Ruth Eaton, Hazel Burns, May Simpson, ] Iyrta Whalian. May Jensen. r a T ee, Hazel Frost, Alice Atwood and Josephine Afartin. We decorated them in the most ' ' scan ' lous " fashion, then made them sing for their dinner. Along with the girls, too, we initated Miss Stephens — she ' s all right, a real S] ort. The rest of the A-ear was spent getting the new girls into the harness and fitting them for their hard work next year.

Xot only liave the girls made a fine showing in the game, but, — Attention, please! — the rooters have shown that Xormal is still alive! At the opening of the season both junior and Senior classes organized and practice for the interclass games was immediately begun. The first of the series of three inter-class games was pla ' ed in the gym February 17. Tlie gallery was crowded with enthusiastic rooters, and class colors, espe- ciall_ - the red and green o the Senic:)rs. were strongly in e ' i(lence. The game was anybodys until the last whistle blew, the final score being 26 to 20 in favor of the Seniors. The second game of the series also went to the Seniors, bv a score of 32-19. The Jtniiors were seriously handicapped in this game by the absence of several of their regular ])la " ers. Xe •er mind. Juniors, it will be your turn next season. Games Played SENIORS.

During the gym class a number of new " phenoms " were discovered and a meeting was accordingly called to discuss basket ball. -Mr. Heil (shorty) was unanimously elected Manager as soon as he agreed to furnish his own stamps and carfare. A delegation was appointed to secure the inestimable services of Mr. Kent as coach. Xo selection for captain was made except for games when the coach chose a field captain. The first practice was very encouraging. Fully half of all the men at the school turned out. Mr. Kent congratulated himself on the prospects of a first class team. Mr. H. Oscar Campbell made a small fortune selling- season tickets for use of the shower baths to the new season. Hoegee had an unprecedented run on gym suits. In the rapidly passing days that followed basket ball l)ecame the important thing at Normal. Clayton and Thomas each forgot to go to a Y. !M. C. A. Glee Club rehearsal. Bailey got a permanent excuse from music the fifth period. Badger cut out queening (only temporarily, however). Normal basket ball quotations went up by leaps and bounds, until the 243 per cent mark was reached and no water in sight. Poly wildly canceled her outside athletics. L. A. High decided basket ball was too rough anyway and turned to Rugby. There wasn ' t any use playing them anyway. Wh} ? Because last year it happened to them up here 29 to 14 and no mention of it in the Blue and hite. N o worthy opponents seemed in sight. One day a Normal sleuth while meandering around in the basement of Annex No. 1, saw a few ' elongated specimens of " infantus homo " (derived from Indian words meaning home infantry or standing army). Result: We trained our training school boys in basket ball and had many a fine practice game wath them. We take this opportunity of expressing our gratitude to those 8th grade boys that helped make our team possible. A weight lifting aggregation from Alhambra High School appeared one evening for our first outside game. We hate to tell what happened that evening between 3:30 and 4:30. In fact we never speak about that game. ' Twas aw ' ful ! Those Alhambra giants had no respect for small pedagogues at all. As an honest conscientious journalist and historian, however, it becomes my duty to repeat the sad tale. We were beaten in several points and by several points. The score had the proportion of 98 to 43. or about 3 to 1, they won and we had the one. The Monday after the game a jollv u]) meeting was held. This meeting- was a forerunner of another jolly up meeting. (For information inquire of H. Allen.) The consensus of opinion seemed to be that we lost the game. ' e also decided that Bailey was to blame. IJailey laid it on his father. Father laid it on the table. We laid Bailey on the tal)le. Bailey then drew up a resolution to be on hand next time. Pasaden a heard of this game. ()ur girls had beaten the Pasadena girls. Tlie Pasadena l)( ys tlioui dit they wduld see wliai ihey could do to us. It was nip and tuck u]) to the last minute of play when Allen passed to Valgamore. who dropped the ball through the iron circle making the score 12 to 11 in Xormal ' s favor. The young men from Pasadena were sorely grieved over this game, but in the language of the training school, " we seen our dooty and done it. " (Mr. A. Harrison Clayton won fame and notoriety in this game as timekeeper.) We now grasp opportunity by the top-knot and compliment the many young ladies who so valiantly attended this, as well as the other games. Their organized rooting was in a class by itself. Their songs far exceeded, both in music and sentiment, anything we have ever heard. Their cheers rang out severally and miscellaneously and often coaxed the ball right out of our hands up into the basket. Come again, little foothill suburb of Altadena. we love to tov with your growing abilities. We next tried the Law School for a series of games. Of all the teams we ever played, those young barristers are the cream when it comes to clean and manlv playing but — oh you Xewmier! Don ' t ever do it again. Hereafter I shall never hear that oft repeated baseball refrain. " Kill the Umpire " without thinking of the above named individual. Xot that we wish him ill. but we just can ' t help thinking of the time he refereed. Other teams were played with various results. Considering all our short comings, accidents and lack of material we feel that we did our part in trying to give athletics a place in Xormal. Here is a list of our infirmities: Allen. Forward. Played team work direct to the basket. Bailey. Center. Swelled wrist. Loaferitis. Campbell. Guard. Argued with spectators (male, of course). Clayton. Guard. Sprained ankle. ( )fter threw the ball before he caught it. Cripe. Guard. I ' layed too lady like. Cmpire often called fouls on him for delaying the game to crave his opponent ' s forgiveness. Heil. Referee.

Some weeks ago the Los Angeles Record came out with some side-lights on said Willie, accompanied by a poem by Fred Schaefer. which w perhaps give some hints to the girls who have been studving up a suitable Reincarnation for the Summer Class of 1910. The Record said: " Some Theosophist comes out with the suggestion that Willie Sidis. the boy mathematical marvel at Harvard, is a reincarnation of Pythag- oras, the Creek philosopher, who lived 25.000 years ago.
