On that date George C. Perkins, governor of the state, signed the bil ' , which provided for the foundation of a branch Normal School at Los Angeles. The San Jose Normal School was the only one in the state. This bill called for fifty thou- sand dollars for erecting the builcling and ten thousand for teachers ' salaries, furnishings and general support. The site was purchased by about two hundred citizens, who were desir- ous of having the new school located in their neighborhood, and was presented to the state. At the time of the purchase, the hill was occupied by an orange grove, in the midst of which the school was built. A ' hen completed, the building was con- sidered one of the finest in California. The corner-stone was laid on December 17, 1881. and the school was formally opened on September 9, 1882. Sixty-one students w-ere enrolled, 13 of them being young men. C. J. Flatt, vice-princi]ial of the San Jose Normal School, took charge of the new branch. The re- maining members of the faculty were, Miss Kmma L. Hawkes, preceptress, and J. W. Redway. The first class to graduate numbered twcnt ' -twc . This was in June, 1884. During the secimd vcar. Tra Moore, who was then vice-presi- dent of the San Jose Normal . chool, was appointed ])residont of the I-os . ngelcs Branch. Tn 1887 the institution became independent of the parent- school at San Jose. Presiflent Tra Moore resigned his positi in in 180. . His place was filled bv President Edward T. Pierce of the State Normal at Chico. During the early jjart of President Pierce ' s administration, the building was considerably enlarged and new courses were introduced. President Pierce resigned in 1004, and Dr. Jesse F. ] Tillspaugh filled the vacancy. President Millsi)augh harl had much expe- rience in educational work before he accei)ted this position. He was principal of the High School at Frankfort, Indiana, for two years, and later he became principal of the Academic Department of the Collegiate Institute of Salt Lake City. After two years in this position he was appointed superintendent of the institu- tion. In 1890 he was elected superintendent of city schools in Salt Lake City, being the first person to occupy that position. Eight years later he became president of the .Minnesota State Normal School, at Winona, where he remained until he was called to his present position at Los Angeles, in 1904. A few members of the faculty have been connected with the school almost since its beginning. Miss Harriet E. Dunn, who is now secretary of the faculty, began her w-ork in 1884. Miss Josephine Seaman, who now teaches English, has been with the school since 1887. Mrs. M. A. English, who recently resigned, taught from 188. ' i to 1887. She again took up her work in 1891. The various departments of special work have been added as they seemed to, be necessary. In 1890 the first Normal School gymnasium in the United States was added to this school and jihysical training was made a required course. The Kindergarten department was started in 18 ' ¥), and its graduates have always been in great demand. The department of Domestic Science was begun in P ' OO. and a short time later the lunch-room became a feature of the school. At |)resent the number of students taxes the capacity of tin school to the utmost. For some time a movement has been on foot to secure a new Normal building in a less congested part of the city, S( me place wdnere there can be am])le grounds, with gardens and athletic courts. Recently the state legislature aji projiriated one hundred thousand dollars for the purchase of ;i new site, and it is to be hoped that this school will soon have a building and grounds that will be in keeping with the high char actcr of the institution. The friends of the Los Angeles Normal School who are ac- customed to look forward to the annual appearance of the Expo- nent will hereafter greet it under a new name. The following extract from the constitution of the Students ' ( )rganization will supply the explanation: " The last issue of the ' Normal Outlook ' of each term shall be published by the graduating class of that term. " As a matter of sentiment, we feel regret that The Exponent will cease to exist, but as a matter of practical interest of the school we feel that The Outlook will supply much-needed en- couragement to school and class activities, and will provide in- struction and entertainment for the entire student body. Boost The Outlook, the school needs it ! " This business is well ended; Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit, I will be brief. " As the time approaches for the Summer Eleven Class to leave these dear, old halls of learning, thoughts of joy are inter- mingled with those of sorrow; joy, when we think of the ideal- ized careers we have plannel ; sorrow, when we think of the fare- wells to our Alma .Mater. Our days here have been filled with both work and play, and many of us have formed friendships never to be broken. Classmates, fellow-students, teachers and friends, we hereby convey to, you one and all, our best wishes for your success wherever your way may lead you ! Whatever merit this Exponent may have is due largely tu the earnest support and encouragement its editors have received from all our assiciates in school. Our success is the result of the sympathetic, faithful, cooperation of the entire staff, the willing assistance and advice of certain of the faculty, especially Miss Gere, Miss Seaman and Dr. Howe, and the fine and helpful spirit shown by the whole school. We take this opportunity of publicly expressing our, thanks to one and all. We also wish to thank our advertisers who have aided so materially in making the book a success ; and we bespeak for them the patronage ni the students and friends of the Normal School. EDITOR.

Seninr I! class, Scnicir li class, How she stands right up in line, And when others run aii ' ainst her. They get worsted ex ' cry time. Dear May : I have at last found time Id write to you, and tell ' ou a " few " iif the " exciting " times we ha e had in imr class since ycni left. It seems as though time has simply llovvn by since the first day we came to " The old red school-house on the hill. " Will you ever forget our consternation when we found that we had to stand in line for — goodness cmly knows how long — merely to get our " programs " signed, and incidentalh ' to get rid of a little of our money. " S ' ou remember that when we entered as Junior C ' s we only had twenty-one in the class, but now we have sixty and lnj[)e to have more before we graduate. Is ' nl that simply splendid? You see what a " popular " class we are. for e -eryone wants to be in it. Of course you remember our first entrance and initiation into the mysteries of the " Capitola luncheon. " J-fow we practiced our yells, until our throats ached, and then when we went into the luncheon we were so interested watching and listening to the others that we forgot to support our yell leader (who by the way is still the on ' ly male representative of our class, I beliexe, although so many new members have been added to it.) You missed a great deal by not staying, for as Junior A ' s we were initiated into the mysteries and pleasures ( ?) of grammar. Many were the brain-racking hours spent in trying to find out why a certain word was an adjective, when in our grammar school days we always called it an adverb. While we were still Junior A ' s, we had the pleasure of helping in the organization of what is now known as the " Junior Organi- zation. " This was formed rather late in the term, and so we entertained all the other Juniors first, because we would not be known as Juniors very much longer. Everyone who came seemed to enjoy themselves immensely, and all were especially ]deased with our little play, " A Picked-up Dinner. " .Although we were not Juniors when the next class entertained, they in ited us to come — and you may be sure we all accejjted, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. When we had attained to the dignity of Seniors, we were then |)ermitted to enter the Training School. With what fear and tremliling we entered it. only those who have had the same ex- perience can know. " What shall we do the first day? " " How- can we be sure that we are not mistaking " weakness " for " kind- ness " (we heard something about this as Junior A ' s). These and many more such questions were troubling us, but after we had started our teaching we were amused to think that we had ever had any misgivings, for we all ])roved to he " natural teachers. " 50 While we were still Senior C ' s we had our fun at the Capitola lunchecjii for the second time. This time we were no longer poor little Junior C ' s, numbering only twenty-one and afraid to make any noise — but we were Senior C ' s with the large number of sixty in the class. " There will be an important meeting of the Senior C class today, at 12:20, in room J. Yell and song |)ractice. " This was one of many similar annnuncements made the week before the luncheon. Oh I how we worked on our songs and yells — (jn the latter until our throats were sore, lint what did a little thing like that matter, when we were going to be able to make as much noise as any one else. On the great da} ' we entered the lunch nmin in serpentine fashion, singing out class song. We had our corner of the room decorated in our colors — - red and white — and all the girls wore white dresses, and hmi- quets of red carnations. What fun we had yelling. " Rat-a-ta-thrat. ta-thrat, ta-thrat, Terra-da-li-x, da-lix, da-lix. Kick-a-bah-bah, kick-a-bah-bah, Senior C clas.s — Rah, Rah. Rah! " We were fortunate enough to have seven faculty members, and the)- all forgot their dignity for the time being, and sang and yelled with us, and also went into the ser|)entine with us. We certainly had a good time, ancl cmly regret that that will tic our last time at Capitola. After this there were so many tilings going on for graduation that we did very little good hard wdrk. but we are surely making up for it now. Well. I have told about everything that we have been doing, so I will close, hoping to hear from j ' ou about your work. Affectionately, HAZEL. DATES NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN. Feb. 15 — The Kollege Kutups.

Well, go to the wash room, and there you will find, not soap, but s-a-p-o- 1-i-o. (This is no ad.) 51 Mars : This (lay liatli tlu- s rcat god Tmen-tnen-toc awakened fnim his long sleep, and hath decreed that I, Imp-his-servant, shall keep record of his earth children at one of the might) temples of learning. These cliildren later go forth as leaders and teachers of other hiunan heings smaller than themselves, imparting knowl- edge and understanding to the unenlightened. The chariot of Tmen-tnen-toc hath been made in readiness for the descent to earth. I am called! I go! Earth: The Tem|)le of Learning. The god hath loeen fitly enshrined in a sanctuary called Room-O, where sacrifices of plants, seeds, earth and tiie honey- bee have been humbly ofl ered by the world children under his care. It is nuw nine o ' clock of the evening, on the day called by humans the-eleventh-of-April-nineteen-ten. I have ventured forth among the halls and ccirridors of my new home, and find many things strange and past my understanding. The children of Tmen-tnen-toc, it seemeth, are called Junior C ' s, and they are of queer manners and heedless. I pray they come not to grief. In the hours of the morning they did flit frantically about, per- forming along with many others, a rite called " registering. " This doubtless seemeth t(} them a most fitting manner to pay homage to the One-of-thc-Shrine. The day hath been full of weird cries and acclamations, and the tread of many feet, and when the sun kisseth this earth on the morrow, the quiet rif this eve will again be broken. It is now the time called the month-of-June, and aiifairs of moment have transpired since the April-day. The Junior-C ' s lia e held many and solemn councils in the sanctuary called Room-O, where they did receive blessing and much advice of the Shrined-One. Those of high position in the government of affairs were early selected of divine right, being of higher under- standing than the others, having heard the voice of Tmen-tnen- toc more clearly. Some days ago, as humans reckon, did occur that ceremony known as a " class-rush, " and a queer dance they did perform about a bronze-bell, whereby it seemeth that those of fleetest foot and greatest strength did gain the bell. The children of He-of- the-Shrine did seem to have been favored in these respects, for 52 tliey (lid bear the bell proudly tn the Shrine-room, as an offering. Whereupon Tmeii-tnen-toc did smile and nod. lie seemeth to understand well the spirit of his children, which hath been to me as a riddle locked in an leaden chest. Strangely to relate, when it was divulged to nie that these children did depart and journey to their abodes to remain during the time called Summer, a hand did grip my soul, and I did learn the first i)angs of the earth-word " goodbye. " Tmen-tnen-toc did but gaze at me with his all-seeing eyes, and 1 did become as a being of jo ' , for I did perceive that when the time of autumn came, then would they niak-e other pilgrimages to the .Shrine, and all would be as in the l)eginning. It was autumn, ;in(l many things ha e I learned i the customs of s])eech and writing of huiuan beings, also have 1 learned that the earth name of Tmen-tnen-toc is Rill-i-ken, spoken with awe and rexerence l)v tliose-who-know. are he rite of registration hath again been performed, and again held the councils in Room-O. the children of the One-of-the- Shrine now being called Junior-ll ' s. A new ruler hath been chosen, and all goeth well. Tmen-tnen-toc seemeth satisfied with the ])rogress of those under his care, although it doth appear that they err at times. . special ceremony was ])erforined some time agone. I)y which the Junior-Ii ' s, as I understandeth, did honor to the Shrine, which was removed to a ])art of the Temple-of-Learning called the " ' gym. " Here offerings of tlowers and leaves were hung upon the sides of the shrine, and many garlands overhead. . Iyriad lights shown out. and all did |)lease ' rnu-u-tnen-toc. for he flesireth the happiness of his children. The first |)art of the rite they did jjerform was called " the program. " and another, in which they did mn e ryhthinetically to music, " the dance. " When this last did come to an end. many did declare their enjoyment of a " dandy-time. " The meaning of this word I know not. nor can 1 find it in men ' s bonks, but Ife-of- ihe . ' shrine imderstandeth all things, and one day will lie make many such (pieer words ])lain to me. The earth donnelh a new mantle and the sun smileth as never ha e I seen him smile before. Tmen-tnen-toc hath become as one in a pleasant dream, heeding only the call of his Junior-A children, who ever and anon make burnt offerings and utter words of thanksgiving. Once more the rite-of-the-gym hath been performed, this time at the abode of one of the Junior-A ' s. On tliat eve did the rain descend and the wind moan, but the chil- dren of the Shrined-One were of brave heart and shrank not from battle with the elements. The shrine was bedecked again with garlands, and the junior. ' s made merry even as before. . t another time did these children l)ecome as the race man calleth " dark-skinned, " prating in a Strang and uncouth language unknown to me. Yet did those assembled about them seem to understand, for at irregular intervals the sound of laughter did echo to the dome o -erhead. It did seem to me that these Jnior-A ' s bail luucli wisdom and learning, being apt at liooks. Yet again did the children of Tmen-tnen-toc gather, along with many others, to obser e the pranks of their sage preceptors and preceptoresses, in that part of the Tem])le-of-Learning called the " . ssembly. " and the air did resound with their laughter and the cla])piug of hands, these being marks of ajipreciation. Lately these same children and their instructors did gather and march in long lines — with weird cries and the clash of cymbals — to a strange place called the " cafeteria, " jxissibly performing the rite of some strange-one whom I know not of. " Capitola. " 1 heard her called. They did wave many banners and chant many Strang songs, the Junior-. " s being heard above the rest. Tmen- tnen-toc heard, and forgetting not his children, caused them to be brought out about the grounds of the Temple, where a human being with a black box did take their likenesses. Wherebye all did file back into the Teniiile and (|uiet did en -elo]) everything. Now are all those that were called " junior-. ' s " called Senior- C ' s. " They begin their task of enlightening the infant human beings under their care, with courage and high heart, unwary of pitfalls in their path, for they fear not. Tmen-tnen-toc watcheth. 53 " Positively the best }-et, " was the decision rendered at the first facuhy meeting early in September, when the entering Junior class was the subject of discussion. " Well. " remarked Miss Stevens, who always has an eye for the aesthetic, " they are the best-looking class yet. " Judging by the silence which followed, no one disagreed or. in other words, every one agreed. " Yes, " continued Miss Dunn. " I ' ll have to admit that they have been the ' best yet ' about registering. I think I had to explain our simple system of registration only five times to a new girl this morning. They didn ' t stand in line very well, but I guess probably none of them have ever had to stand in a bread-line, or buy tickets for the ' Campus, ' or anything like that. " Dr. Howe then rose to his feet and talked very fluently on the merits of this class for fully twenty-nine minutes. The other members of the faculty became quite nervous and impatient dur- ing this lengthy discourse. But the president rose to the occa- sion, and when Dr. Howe jjaused for breath and made ready for a new start. Dr. Millspaugh in his usual courteous manner in- formed him that his time was up, and suggested that he might gain some further knowledge on the subject if he should listen for a little while to the opinions of the rest of the faculty. " It ' s barely possible, " replied Dr. Howe, casting a contemptuous glance at the faculty in general, " but highly improbable. " After a few more remarks, the president added this convincing statement; " For these many 3-ears I have wanted to send my daughter to this institution, but have been waiting for such a class as I would be willing to have her enter. When I saw this ' best yet ' class ascending our front steps, I hailed it with gladness and great rejoicing for I knew that the time was come at last when I could safely bring my daughter to this place of learning. " But we much not stay longer at the faculty meeting, so. pars- ing over a few months, let us go to the assembly hall. This is 54 the afternoon that two sections of the Junior A class are enter- taining all the other Juniors. The first number on the program is an illustrated reading of Riley ' s i)ocm. ' ' An Old Sweetheart of Alinc. " The reader. Laura liursh, charms the audience with her musical voice, and our attention wanders only when we hear the paltering footsteps of a little child. We look up and see Alta Bailey dressed as the first sweetheart in pure white with a dainty lingerie hat which half hides her curls. The reading continues and we are again interrupted by the entrance of Helen Mills- paugh in her pink checkered ajiron and sun-bonnet. In a few minutes, when she has partially overcome her baslifulness, she draws from somewhere underneath her a])ron a large red apple, " his i)resent, " and eagerly begins eating it. The next time we are jjermittcd lo gaze on the sweetheart she is cjuite a young lady, and Rena Polkington represents ior us ' ' a face of lily beauty, with a form of airy grace. " In the last picture we see the sweetheart as wife, and Elizabeth Ross with a true motherly air comes ujjon the stage carrying in her arms a dear little baby girl who wins the hearts of the audience by waving her small hand at them. The next number is one of Gladys Young ' s clever readings delivered in her usual charming style. During an intermissi(jn which follows, stick cand} ' is passed around, much to the delight of all the little ones present. But the real hit of the afternoon is the one-act comedy, " My Aunt from California. " Alma Cahy makes a capital maiden lady, whose tastes along literary lines run to Gray ' s ' " Elegy " and Milton ' s " II I ' enseros. " Ruby Feazel with her jolly laugh and " kiddish ways " brings down the house as Sally Muntoburn. Rosalie, the society belle, is well taken by Georgina White, to whom a blue kimono is most becoming. The other characters, Beth Glezen as Mrs. Muntoburn, Dorothy Willard as Mrs. Needy, Mae Ferson as the dressmaker, and Bertha lierry as the maid, are so good that we wish we could see and hear more of ihem. In fact, this " best 3 ' et " class ])resented the " best yet " ])erformance, just as the faculty ])redicted. Leaving the assemlily hall, we descend to the dining room for the Ca])itola luncheon. .Ks we enter we are greeted with catchy class songs and yells, while the different class colors are l)eing gaily waved in the air. But cons|)icuous above all others is the yellow and white banner of the Junior A ' s. What a ])icturc it is. this serpintine of the jolliest, happiest, prettiest girls of that " best yet " class ! There never before, in this or any other realm of school girls, was such singing, and there surely never was a song which could compare with — " Oh there ' s no class like the Juniors. Most of all the Junior A. I ' or we ' re always happy and gay. I ' ull of fun. never glum. And so easy to please. And we always mind our teachers, For we have our Golden I ule. Don ' t you plainly see That we ' ll always be The pride of the Xormal .School? " LOTS CASKEY. WOULDN ' T YOU? First day in Primary Ed. — Miss .Vndrus: " Are there any teachers in the room? " Mrs. Hunnewcll raises her hand. Miss . ndrus, coming forwanl — (delightedly): " Oh. are you Miss Dinin ? " N ' ow. could yon blame the class for " roaring? " I ' upil — " Didn ' t I ' .nu ' rson — " Miss l- " ernald — " Beg pardon, 1 didn ' t imderstand. " I ' upil — " Emersi n, didn ' t he — " Miss F.— " Oh. yes— idiot.s— Well, the psychological abstract concept — " and some wondered why the class laughed. :?3 I am only a little white skeleton, lianging on the wall in I ui ni R at the State Normal School of Los Angeles, but I certainly know a great deal more than most people would think. Of course I am wise, for how could anyone help al)sorhing some knowledge after being in Mr. Miller ' s ])hysiology and nature- study classes every day and attending Miss Jacol) ' s gym. lectures once a week? I have learned where all my bones are located, to recognize every bird-note as the hap|)y, free birds fly past the window, and I have even learned how to walk, to stand and to run correctly, although I haven ' t much use for either of those actions since 1 am forever doomed to be lied to the wall l)y a string and some wise springs. My only movement is to dangle, up and down, with a perfecth ' free use of arms and legs. But something of more pleasure to me than all the rest is the friendship of the Junior C class. They are Junior B ' s now, but they are still my friends, for they hold their class meetings in the room where 1 am ever present, even though they do not attend classes here every day. I first met them in January of this year and from the first I was very much interested in them. There are twenty-six girls and one boy in the class. As every one knows, of course it is rather lonesome for me, especially at night, hanging on the wall, in the dark. I have much Iroublc in finding something with which to amuse myself. One dark night 1 decided to peek into the drawer of Mr. Miller ' s desk and there were the past histories of the Junior B ' s. Some- how one feels better acquainted with his friends when he knows their past histories. What do you think that 1 found out? In that one little Junior B class the members represent at least fifteen different states in the Union, besides Scotland and England. It is not every class which can sIkiw such a record. Of course I meet most of the class every day but one day at noon, nearly all of them came in. Could they be coming to call on me or was it a snfifragette meeting? In the course of time 1 found out that it was a class meeting, in which I was very much interested. Margaret Shelt was elected president, Edna Cum- mings vice-president, and Maude StifTer secretary. One day a very special meeting was held. The Junior C ' s were to have a class luncheon on the lawn and from the good things to eat, which they all promised to bring, I am sure they had a good time. That day one of the girls invited the class to a Valentine party at her home. (I wish that I too might be in the society part of the class.) The morning after St. ' alentine ' s day several of my friends were late to the physiolog} ' class. I wonder if the party could have had anything to do with it? Every one must have had a 56 good time, for they talked oi candy hearts, frames and refresh- ments, especially ])ickles and , for several days afterward. I happened t i see stjme (if the favors, aluminum drinking- cups, which, 1 thou£i;ht, were ery pretty and useful. Those ])resent must have had their fortunes toUl, for they all seemed hajipy that they were not to be school-teachers all of their lives. How else could they know? I guess they always find out such things at Valentine parties. (I ' ve never been tn ime. sn 1 dun ' t know.) They had class meetings for various purposes but one day the girls came into tlie room very much e.xcited over the Cajjitola luncheon. That meant another sjood time. I ' m sure, for everv one promised to come. Then there were several more meetings and as a result they have green and white for class colors and daisies for class flowers. I certainly think that they have good taste. . nd yell ))ractice, that was great. I helped some hut 1 don ' t think anyone heard me. lUit their yells were fine. The Capitola luncheon must have been a happy affair for 1 heard the yells and songs even where 1 was, coming from the lunch room, and again I wished I were a member of the Normal School and esjiecially of the present [unior P class. MARGARET SULI.1 ' A. . 57 crp The Junior C class is composed of thirty-two members. Of these, nine are native daughters. (There are no young men, nor even old men, in the class.) Of the others, one is a native of Ireland, one is " from lissouri. " two are from Colorado, four from Illinois, two from Pennsylvania, two from Xew Jersey, one from Canada, one from Kentucky, two from Arizona, and one each from South Dakota, Washington, Tennessee, Arkansas and Montana, and two won ' t tell. Fifteen of the nuniljer are graduates from Los Angeles High School, four from Los Angeles I ' olytechnic, four from other Cali- fornia high schools, and the remainder from high schools of other states. The total age of the class is 592 years and seven munths. The average age is eighteen years and six months. The variation in age ranges from — but what ' s the use telling so much about our- selves. We are a fine class — about the finest in school, and we expect to leave the Normal School better than we found it. Our motto is " Forsaus haec alim meminisse invabit. " — Virgil. " Per- haps in the future it will delight us to remember these things. " The music rocjm durint Adamless Eden. Muf III il the s-jrinti ' term, was an PHYSIOLOGICAL.

A waist pattern — (No style). 58 M©EP i . m Senior .ike many dtlii-rs before us, we tlioii lit ourselves already c|uite sophistieated when we came to the Normal School to enter the Kinder!. ' ,arten Department, and like many others, we soon discovered that we were still sufficiently verdant to get sadly mixed up when it came to presenting credentials and getting cards signed. lUit having successfully passed under Miss Dunn ' s eagle ey , we entered ujidn our career, the largest class that had ever entered the Kindergarten. Music and reading threatened to extinguish us for a while, for one utterly lacking his- trionic talent, and whose voice was shadowy and uncertain, to he asked to render impas- sii ' iud selections from " . s You Like It. " or called upon to sing " liah I ' .ah iUack Sheeji. " with much expression, life began to lose its charm. However, we survived those ordeals, and found that, in so doing, our self-confidence had grown to such proportions that nothing in the realm of school work could daunt us. • Our first important .step in class aflfairs was the election of officers. Marguerite Atlee was elected iircsident. Florence I ' oorey, vice-president, and Celia (irover. secretary and treasurer. The Senior class entertained us, we returned the complimeiu. and our first term was gone. Life went on serently during our second term until liie advent of the play, " Any dirl, " when we juniors played a small but im])()rtant part in adding our beauty to the final procession. Then on the tenth of March came Miss PVench ' s birthday. Our class pre- sented her with a mammoth cake adorned with 16 candles — 16 being considered the most api)ropriate numl)er. for various reasons. ( Uir Junior year closed in triumph, although our chief marks of distinction seemed to be making noise in the halls, talking in assembly and ersevering in playing the piano during the entire noon hour, thereby reducing the .Seniors to the ergc of nervous prostration. September found us back again, somewhat reduced in numbers, but not in enthusiasm. icicnne Faulder, Flossie Cole and Hazel Hanks were elected officers. Then came the an- i uish i f the first practice teaching and many were the doleful tales exchanged during the noon hour. 59 In October Miss Whitlock resigned her position as director of the Kindergarten Normal and Miss Phiss came to take her place. On Hallowe ' en the Jnnior class entertained ns most delight- fully. We planned to give a Valentine dance in the gymnasium in their honor, but certain rules relating to the forbidden use of wax on the floor and the home waltz being over by eleven, so dampened our enthusiasm that we gave an afternoon party in- stead on February twenty-first. Miss French invited all of her girls to celebrate her birthday when it came and we all enjoyed ourselves exceedingly. In March new class officers were electd for the last term. Flossie Cole was made president, Geneva Saun- ders, vice president. Marguerite Atlee. secretary and treasurer. The play " Any Girl, " was given . pril 21st and this closed all our social events. Now our work is over. Our responsiliilities have been greater this year than last, but our good times have been many, too. For two years we have all worked and played together and now we have come to the parting of the ways. May the best wishes of each and every one of us go with each and every one of us as we separate and go forth into the broader fields of action ! On September 14, 1910, the Junior Kindergarten registered — fifty in number, and each time a program was timidly presented. Miss Dunn encouraged us with, " Another kindergarten! " During the first days we formed a species of hunting expedi- tions, peering cautiously behind doors to find the letter that served as " open sesame " to class rooms. Oh ! the agonies of our first music class ! Fifty times we sang " Swanee River " — sometimes too high, more often pitched too low, but always with fervent meaning at the words — " take me to my kind old m _ither! " In October this wonderfully fine class organized itself with Genevieve Bell as president and Myrl Russel as secretary and treasurer. After this we burst into social prominence with an informal reception to Miss French and our Senior sisters. We offered dainty refreshments in the shape of massive doughnuts and a keg of cider. Later the Seniors responded and we were given an opportunity to dis[)lay our knowledge in rhymes of Mother Goose. Miss Laura Knecht turned everyone else down and was awarded the prize — a handsomely bound book of Mother Goose Rhymes. Delicious ice cream, home made cakes and candies served to mitigate our sufferings and were joyfully received by all present. When Miss French invited both classes to celebrate her birth- day we had a glorious time dancing, playing games and " doing impromptu stunts. " The Seniors ' band was an awe inspiring production led by the staid Miss Atlee. A jumping jack dance airly ])erformed by two Juniors was characteristic of that artistic and highly aesthetic class fahem!). Two Seniors wrung our hearts with a melodrama of subtle sorrow, and a candle march closed our program. As each one filed past our hostess in fare- well, she blew out her candle leaving a silent wish for happiness liehind her. The simple ceremony was as eiifective as it was beautiful. We attended the Capitola Luncheon, a screaming afifair — with emphasis upon the voice rather than victuals. To paraphrase a familiar quotation, we found it " plain living and high thought- lessness " and we read later that our white and gold caps added charm to the occasion. 60 Alumni The Kindcrijarten Alumni maintain a Kindcrt arten at the South Pasadena Chihlren ' s Home, where Kindergarten Seniors from the Normal do practice teaching. This year Gertrude Hulette, Leah Dean, Florence Boorey, Henrietta Castleman, Hazel Banks, Carlotta Bohri, Blanch Cottingham and Celia Glover have conducted the morning circles and given the table lessons. The girls feel how inexperienced their attempts to carrj ' on the Froebelian exercises are, hut their work, or rather |)lay. with the children is not quite futile if they may succeed in some measure to gladden the hearts of those little unfortu- nates, brightening the dull iiours with childlike song which takes the place of the usual tunes, awakening their interest in the lovely and attractive about them, showing them how to make pretty things and how to ])lay hajJiiily together. There were several special celebrations arranged for the children : a harvest festival, a wee but gay Christmas tree, a long automobile ride and a visit to the ostrich farm. .Ml these occasions prove l most delightful. It has been hard for each one of the student- teachers to leave, but every one of the little folks there, from rougish Marry I ' nn to dear ISa by Tlu-lma. claim warm renuMH- brance. CHURCH OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD. On the corner of East Ninth and Wilson streets stands a large frame building, known as the " Church of the .Veighborhootl. " It was constructed originally by a car])cnter, whose as|)iratioii was to lead the Christ life. He took uj) his abode among the people of the community, entering into their li es and interest and helping them in their difficulties. In this building, during the school months. Kindergarten Seniors conduct a kindergarten under the auspices of the Ejiis- co])al Sisters, who now ha c the work in charge. The Kinder- garten is cosmopolitan in its membership. Italian, Spanish, .Mexican, negro and white children are all represented, each child ready to fight his own battle; the theory of the survival of the fittest seems here to receive its practical application. Time never hangs heavy on our hands, for the disputes to be settled are many and of great variety. The children vary in age from two to seven years, all the older ones bringing the babies of the family, who are allowed to come and go as they please. But great is the distress of some little mother it her " baby " is out of her sight for any length of time. There are about sixty names on the register, with an average daily attendance of about half that number, imless a party is announced, when every child is on hand and many mothers, like- wise. But all are welcome, as many of them come from sordid homes, and we are trv ' ing to lift them out of their enviromnent for a little while, at least, and give them a glim])se of something better and nobler; our aim is to brighten the lives of the little children under our care.

C. 61 ff Ifrr pfirC p r Qi HLUMHl You have honored me by asking me, as a graduate of many years standing, to contribute to this number of The Exponent. To sit at my desk, pencil in hand, staring at the word " Ex- ponent " in the hope of inspiration, brings to my mind so many recollections that I cannot forbear letting my assigned subject go by the boards and dallying a while with my memories of a time, now so far in the past, when the fate of the whole world weighed upon my shoulders, when the problems that had both- ered the philosophers for centuries were just on the eve of solution at last, that glorious period, so arduous in the passing, but always to be looked back upon as the acme of care-free happiness — to be explicit, I refer, as my astute readers may have guessed, to the year when I was a Senior at school. During all my Junior year I had cherished a secret ambition. There were, of course, many desirable things in life, but for me the pinnacle of desirability was the editorship of the Normal Exponent. Just why I so coveted this post, I have never since been able to fathom. Certainly I had no conception of the hardships attendant upon such giddy height. At that time The Exponent was published every month. You who have had practical experience in getting enough material to issue one number a year may guess at the ease and felicity VERA NIMMER with which a monthly was prepared. At the first student bod jneeting that I attended in my new glory as a Senior B, a thought- ful Senior A, who had been business manager for one term, rose and suggested that the publication of the school magazine be thereafter discontinued. He brought, I have no doubt, many hard, cold facts to support his argument ; but hard, cold fact.-; did not weigh heavily with me in those halcyon days, nor did they, apparently, with the other members of my class, for at the close of my impassi(jne(l plea for the life of the magazine the meeting decided unanimously to continue the monthh- publica- tion and elected me editor-in-chief. And that was the beginning of harder work than 1 had ever done. From the first of each month to the day before the paper went to press I haunted the English rooms and waylaid in the halls such students as did not see me first, urging one and all to seek the short-cut to glory by contributing to the pages of The Exponent. Those who have themselves tried to collect arti- cles for a school paper will, I know, sympathize with my poor self of long ago when I confess that regularly on the night before the paper had to go to the printer I would retire to my room, wrap a wet towel around my head, and until daylight would grind out stories, poems and essays in as various styles as I could muster, signing them with letters of the alphabet taken at ran- 62 dum. The chief contributors of that term must have appeared to a casual observer as au extremely modest set. for they rarely ])ublished under their names, but chose, for the most part, the ol)Scurity of initials. It is a good method by which to keep down any undue jjride of authorship. . t the close of that half-year session the paper was still alive ; it would not be c(Misistent with truth to describe it in more glowing terms. ] ut my class, which had urged its continuance, was not of the s])irit to abandon an undertaking liecause of its difficulties. We had chosen for our motto: " .Ml things are pos- sible to him who bclicvcth. " Though our course through school was strewn with the wrecks of our ventures, we did not look back at them for guidance. I)ut blithely undertook the ne.xt ])leas- ing feat. The ])ossible was not limited by any check of self- confidence. ' e adopted the i)criodical and decided (for no one else aj)- peared to care) that thereafter The Exi)onenl should be managed exclusixely by the Senior . class and should be published twice a year at graduation. (In the prehistoric days of which T write there were two terms instead of three.) ( )ut of i)ity for my strenuous but fruitless efforts in the past, the class magnani- mously made me editf)r-in-chicf again and jiromised to give hearty sup])ort to the pa;)er. Their enthusiasm cleared away all difficulties. We found it e en possible to pay for the i)ublica- tion by the ad ertising matter alone, a condition of affairs wholly unprecedented. ' i " he money from the sale of the copies was to he so much clear gain. .• nd then came the first great ideal It was conceived by a member of ilie start ' , and was accej)ted ith delight by the entire class, (itlur classes, on graduating, had given to the school I)icturcs or statues. We would do that, too. but we would do more. We decitlcd to show our love and gratitude by founding a loan fund for the benefit of students who might otherwise be unai)le to finish their course, so that after we were gone our spirit might li ' e on and iie of help to our Alma Mater. To carry out this ])lan, however, meant far more money than we could ho|)e tf) realize even by sales un|)recedenled in nimi- ber. I ' .ut since in our cnn-d believing was the one necessary condition to success, we did not hesitate in perfecting the details of the plan. Some way would open out before the eves of faith. Howe ver, we kept our powder dry as possible. We did every- thing that we could think of to stimulate curiosity. Mysterious hints of the great plan were set floating abt ut. New methods of advertising were dexised. Nobody was allowed to forget tliat the coming of The Exponent was a matter of vital interest to all and that there were to I)c fewer copies on sale than there were students desiring them. The great day arrived. With proper ceremony the .sale was inaugurated. Vithin an hour every cojiy but one was gone. .And then came the second great idea. I think the credit of that belongs to Geoffrey Morgan ; at least, he carried it to suc- cess. The students and the faculty we-e summoned to the auditorium. Thee Mr. Morgan, holding before them the sole remaining Exponent, told them of the scholarshij) which the class wanted to leave to the school, and cx|)lained that in order to bring the sum already on hand to the desired aiuoimt the last cojiy would then and there be auctioned oft ' to the highest bidder. Von can never imagine the excitement and jollity of the next hour. One after another the members (.f the faculty bid in the copy, only to put it up at auction again. Their examijle was fol- lowed by the students. Everybody took a hand in the bidding. Those who could not afford to jjlunge heavily as individuals banded together and established collecti e rivalry. Mr. .Morgan, as auctioneer, was inimitable, keeping the house in a roar of laughter. hen the auction closed at noon it was found tiiat nearly two hundred dollars had been cleared. I do not know who finally got that precious co])y. and ha e often wondered about it. 1 find that I ha e written of ancient liistory at much greater length than 1 had any idea of doing when I sat down to com- pose an article on ' " The Normal . hmmi . ssociation. " It is little of my subject that I ha e tc uched ujjon — an l yet. in a way. it is the essence of it. for the strength of any body of .Alumni docs not lie in their organization, nor even in their ci nscious activities, but in the lo ing memories wliich they cherish in their hearts.

This success is due to the strong corps of workers, our Cabinet, the help of the Advisory Board, and the generous co- operation of the faculty and student body. ' e have been fortunate this year in ha ing as our guests Miss Helen Salisbury, Territorial Secretary, and Miss Kawai. of Japan. The topics of our Thursday afternoon meetings have spread themselves over a broad field, and the talks were most helpful and interesting. We take this opportunity of publcly thanking the speakers who so willingly helped us make our meetings a success. Four Bible study classes and one mission study class have been formed, which meet weekly and are instructed by Miss Graves, except the Friday afternoon Bible class, which Mr. Macurda leads. The Y. W. C. .• . girls liave given candy sales, pennant sales, and a poster sale. . 11 have been well patronized, for which we thank the student bodv heartily. The biggest financial suc- cess of the year was the Faculty Stunt Program. On that oc- casion our instructors forgot their professional mien and gave us an afternoon where fun and school spirit ran high. We were surprised and pleased at the degree of musical, dramatic and lit- erary talent displayed. The afifair was the closest rival of the Class Luncheon for fun and noise. But the Class Luncheon is an event which will not be forgotten quickly. On that day the whole school serpentined and almost stampeded the build- ing, boisterously giving yells and songs all the while. Each class found its place in the dining hall, and noise and fun were at its height when Dr. Millspaugh came up to the Junior A ' s smiling and bowing and told them they would bestow a great favor upon the photographer would they pose for his camera. The jealous Senior A ' s followed speedily, but the younger class had already taken first honors. Thereupon the .Senior . l ' s pout- 66 ed like little children and received due punishment liy the hand of the successful class. Each term the Y. W. inenihers act as pilots abmit the build- ing for the in-coming class aiul provide them with light refresh- ments at the noon hour for the first few days. Also a recep- tion is given for the Junior C girls and a farewell for the Senior A ' s. There have been socials at Northfield II all and ami ng groups of students. The Association lost a loyal heljier and friend when Mrs. English tendered her resignation as one of our teachers. She was President of our .Advisory Board, and her place will be hard to fill. We miss her wise counsel and her happy way of en- couragement. It was she who made us feel that we could make big things come to pass. Our Capitola delegates ha ' e returned full of enthusiasm and plans for broader and more effective work. The con enlion was most instructixe and helpful.

However, under the careful training of Miss Stevens, the individual voices were brought into ])erfect harmony with one another. The year ' s work was begun by a delightful initiation of new members at Echo Park. I.t was fitting, therefore, that the first appearance of the cluli should be a musical evening given at the Echo I ark club house. The program was arranged for the en- tertainment of children, the Glee singing a couple of groups of folk songs. The other numbers were appropriately chosen solos given by various members of the club, and readings by Miss Josephine Martin. The efforts of the girls were greatly appre- ciated by the children. Besides singing at the various class functions, the club ap- peared at the reception given by the faculty to the mem1)ers of the Spring class. The encore, " When Love is Kind, " was sung with so much vim that Mr. Miller accused the Glee girls of being unduly influenced by their leader. The song ends with the shocking line, " Then love may go to Jericho ! " The cantata, " Summer Winds, " by Brewer, was worked ii]i during the first term and given at the gradaution of the Christ- mas class. The second number was, " The Rose and the Moth, " by Mrs. Jamison. The group sung at the exercises of the Spring class was com- posed of Rubenstein ' s " Wanderer ' s Night Song, " and " The Gypsies, " by Mrs. Schuman. 68 Althoug ' li the club attcixlcd faithfully to their musical duties, time was found for other fun as well. On Ilallowc ' en the (jirls (jlee entertained the boys ' club in the i ymnasium. The e en- ing ' s amusements were in keeping with the lime. The gym. and bridge were appropriately decorated with the royal purple and lavender of the E O. while peeping from the flowers and greenery, wdiich formed the background for the glee pennants, were old witches on broom sticks, and black cats with arched backs and bushy tails. Refreshments, dictated by Hallowe ' en custom. were served in the dining room. Miss Stevens and Miss Blewctt were called upon for toasts, and the feast was concluded by the " hymn " of the Girls ' Glee Club. The club was very sorry to have lost several of its members during the year. Mrs. Stecker and Miss Leanna Field found it necessary to leave school at the end of the first term. Miss Ethel Best, one of the first sopranos, graduated with the Spring class. Miss Myrta Mialin and F.lva Garfield found it impossible to do the extra work of the club. 69 OFFICERS. A. Clarence Hodges President Ralph Urey Secretary-Treasurer " Hero " ? ' rench Librarian Well, dear old last yearer. I suppose you want to know, as well as the next yearers. how it all happened. So here goes. You remember, before you quituated, that one morning a mod- est-looking man with a classy vandyke appeared before you among the faculty. Say, j ' ou didn ' t know he was a second Caruso? He it was who inspired the souls of us boys to greater things. So here ' s to Macurda. We hope to see you join us soon. After we had duly received our ins]3iration around we came to Miss Stephens, who had but one afternoon free before we came and now has none. Hurrah for Stephens I You ' re all right. It was certainly a " glee " time at our first meeting. One could hear strange noises coming from Room S on a certain Thursday afternoon. Of course all of us are talented in a musical way, so we had no difficulty in singing together. Did we, Miss Stephens? " I can not tell a lie — " That will do. Miss Stephens. I ' ll call on I Ir. . bbott to express his opinion of our first singing. " I really, hardl}- know why I am called upon to speak, but I — " Enough, Afibott. (I never saw a fellow like him.) If you were fortunate enough to be in Assembly one moment- ous occasion in Xovember, you remember seeing the boys rise, and with palpitating hearts and quaking knees, walk to the foot of the rostrum, each striving to hide behind the other. . nd then did ' st thou hear the Boys ' Glee Club sing? Long will the remembrance of that first public apj earance remain in the minds of the most concerned. It ' s too bad, Mr. Wrench, that you were prohibited from reaching A in the " Lost Chord, " but you know Miss Stephens feared that we might find the chord if you at- tempted it, and that would never do. Better luck next time. " Hero. " The next event wurthy nf mention was an entertainment given by the Girls ' Glee Club. This was a Hallowe ' en party on the old Gym. floor. Before this, the two clubs had been given a chance to say " Howdy do — awfully glad to see you, etc., " so we all felt perfectly at ease on that night. What did we do? " Oh, how could you, Agnes? " We did everything and everybody. We played Hallowe ' en games of all sorts and even had our fortunes told. After we exhausted both ourselves and the games we betook ourselves to the dining ronm and there were given a sumptuous 70 feed of jnimpkin pic and red ajiples. Mr. Abbutt was toast- master. Toasts were in order until Mr. Bailey was called upon and then they were decidedly out of order. " Enuf sed " about that. (Here ' s to the Girls ' Glee: You ' rs sure there; keep it up, we need the encouragement.) For the next month the Boys ' Glee lay low. Too many things were going on to disturb us. But the close of the Christmas holiday.s saw us back in the harness with another boy, commonly known as Lovey Miller. (Here ' s to Miller: You ' re all to the good. Stick. ])i)(ist and sing!) Soon we inxited the (iirls ' Glee Club to attend one of Brahni ' s Quintet concerts, and they were there in full force. Sorry, girls, we didn ' t have enough men to go around, but siicli is lite at the Normal School, so take it ])hiloso])hically. Who ' s our accompanist? Vou know her. .She used U pla_ ' for the chorus. Yes, her name is iiarrington. Come on, boys. yell it: " What ' s the matter with Harrington? Siie ' s all right. Who ' s all right? Harrington! ' ' There are two boys who haven ' t been mentioned who are very conspicuous in our club. The one is noticeable because of the color of his hair, if any. (Here ' s to Sheppy, the best of the best — may he boost the club from now to the end of time !) The other is addle. He hasn ' t been a])le to a|)])ear with us in ]jublic yet. but he is " all there, " just the same. Come around oftener, Mr. Waddle; we need your stentorian l)asso. This is an honest account of the doings of the Boys ' Glee Club u|) 1(1 the time of this writing. However, they have been booked for several other performances during the remaining year.

So liel]) the good work on. OUR FELLOW STUDENTS 71 Society ]) F o Society Notes Why, hello Jean ! I certainly am glad to see you. Have you your aero ' fastened so that you can stay all afternoon ? Oh, but you must! I have been rummaging in old trunks today and finding the most interesting things. Just look, here ' s a diary kept by my grandmother when she was going to Normal — you know, what we call the " School for Nation Trainers, " and she writes so quaintly of all the happenings at the school. You sit in this cozy chair and I ' ll take a cushion at your feet, then we can read it together. Let me see — this first part is so dim I can scarcely read it. " Such a jolly good time. We Junior A ' s surely know how to entertain. Everyone declares our dance the success of the sea- son, even though the floor wasn ' t waxed. The decorations were very effective as long as they lasted, hut of course everyone wanted a pennant as a souvenir. " You see, Jean, even grandmother ' s friends liked pennants. Here ' s the next entry. Well, if it isn ' t another dance! Friday Eve., Oct. 27 . " I ' m so tired I can scarcely write, but I must get this dance news in my diary. I really believe that our Senior C dance was more fun than the Junior A. The Hallowe ' en decorations were so pretty — witches, cats and black lanterns, and the programs were very eiTective, being skulls for the girls and pumpkins for the boys. We even had cider and sugar cookies, not to mention big red apples floating temptingly in tubs of water. I saw some very distinguished persi:)nages bobbing for those apples. " Wouldn ' t you have liked to have been there, Jean? Let ' s see what comes next. Oh, here are pages and pages of news about house-parties, picnics and other school fun. And another dance ! February 24. " Our dance for the Senior A ' s was a big success. The Senior A ' s resembled the proverbial needle in the haystack, but when one caught a glimpse of them they seemed to be enjoying them- selves. The girls, lady faculty included, all looked particularly pretty in their dainty dresses, and the men ' s dark clothes made a lovely background for them. I wonder if that is why men wear dark clothes? " Jean, I wish we wore dainty, pretty clothes. I am getting tired of these dark trouserettes and jackets. I don ' t suppose we could bear to wear skirts, but I think we might have our clothes made of pretty cloth. Finish the diary? That ' s so, I had nearly for- gotten it. This entry looks interesting. Let ' s read it — " The Capitola joUyup gets better every year. The college girls planned this one and yesterday afternoon almost all of us (excepting the boys) were in the gym. for a couple of hours laughing at the ' Katchy Kollege Kutups. ' An orchestra ( ?) entertained us before the stunts began and in the interludes of changing scenes. The potted plants and footlights seemed almost human in their beauty and brilliancy. Miss Shepardson touched the heart of every ' little girl " present, with her story of ' Tommy and the Greased Pole, ' and I am sure many of us have taken the moral to heart with gratifying results. How we laughed when ' Young Lochin- vare ' tossed ofT the ' wine ' and danced with the ' bride, ' and how clever Mrs. English ' s trip around the world was. Then, the final stunt, when all the college girls, dressed in white with red sweaters, formed a serpentine and gave college songs and yells. That gave a delightful finish to such a jolly entertainment. " Jean, I don ' t see why we can ' t use some of those stunts. I wonder what the story of " Tommy and the Greased Pole " was like! What comes next? Some more stunts? " Faculty stunts! Faculty stunts! Who would ever have thought it of them? Oh, goodness, I ' m afraid that sounds fear- fully mixed, for I am so tired from laughing I hardly know what I am writing. For several days we have been hearing vague talk of ' F ' aculty stunts, ' but we really could hardly comjirehend what it was all about. Then this afternoon we trooped up to the assembly room to investigate matters. While waiting for the performance to commence we Senior B ' s whik-d away the time with yells and cheers. When we were in the midst of this the ' stage door ' ojjened and Mrs. Beck came forward. The rest was one continuous laugh. The orchestra got us well under way and we kept going in varying degrees throughout the long entertain- ment. When ' little Ada Miller ' read so sweetly the story of the ' Moo Cow Moo, ' we could hardly ex])ress our feelings, by both laughing and clajjping, so had to shriek a little. I can ' t take time to tell of all the stunts, but T must mention Dr. Howe ' s ' classic ' and the model school-room. They were certainly amongst the best of a superfine program. Xow, I ' ll just have to stop and go to bed. or I ' ll never be able to teach in the morning. " Grandma seemed to enjoy herself, didn ' t she. jean? ()li, don ' t go yet! This next entry is so scribbly 1 know it must be inter- esting. Sit down while 1 read it. March 15. " Mj- jioor throat, my |)oor feet, and my poor whole body! 1 am so tired I can scarcely hold my pencil, but oh the fun I ha e been having! Today was the great Ca])it )la luncheon day and as we are the wonderful Summer ' 11 class we had to, and easily did, outshine all others. h ' roTii the time the first serjientine started to the final yell in the halls, the luncheon was a grand success. When our huge ser[)entine came stamping down the halls lustily singing, ' Hey there! just look at us, we ' re on our way. ' you may be sure that everyone did look and then scam- pered out of the wa) ' . One teacher after another joined our ranks and when Miss Dunn fell into step we all stopped singing long enough to give a rousing cheer. Well, we finally got into the lunch-room, which was effectively decorated in the colors of the different classes and then, what a racket. Everyone was singing or yelling and no one knew what anyone else was saying, excepting when one of our yells would shriek out ab(n-e the rest. One scarcely had time to eat his lunch and didn ' t care either, it was so much fun to yell. After this we had some more serpen- tining and finally broke ranks to mop our brows and comb up our back hair. My, but all the fourth hour teachers got good recitations today! " Oh Jean, that must have been fun! Let ' s do it some time. Well, dear, if you must go — Is the wind all right for the trip home? Come again soon and wel ' ll finish the diary and read all about the fun grandma had when she was a Senior A. Goodbye Jean, goodbye. 75 Literary 76 The Woman in The First Pew The little lady in black heaved a sight of relief when she found herself there on time, and, with a smile of supreme joy, seated herself where the usher had indicated. " Seat 11, Row I, Center. " One of the events which would make this a red letter day was over — she had been ushered in. As she sat down, she was all unconscious of the kindly eyes that were turned upon her. To be sure, the black silk dress she wore had been her " best " for ten years back. The bonnet was a shabby little affair, and the black cotton gloves showed evidences of having been mended and remended ; but her face — that kindly mother face, wrinkled and faded, yet smiling and hopeful, preached an eloquent sermon of self-sacrifice and loving service; it breathed a benediction. The lights went out. The face was hidden. Then the cur- tain rose, and there upon the platform of the college chapel sat the graduating class. They were two hundred strong; but the woman in the first row saw only one manly form, one earnest face, one pair of honest gray eyes that met her ' s so directly — her little son grown tall, her boy. She forgot the people near her, she did not hear the address by the famous orator from the East, but leaning forward in her seat, she saw only him. Her thoughts traveled back through the years to the time when he was a toddler at her knees, crying to go to school. She had determined then, when the pleading eyes looked up at her so longingly, to give him the education which she had so wanted, but which circumstances had prohibited. The boy went through the grammar grades and then desired a high school course. Yes, he must have that, too. He was older, he had said, and could help. Together they had worked and succeeded. How well she remembered that day four years ago when he receivd a diploma from the best high school in the state. He had passed the sec- ond milestone on the road to a higher education. The university course was next in line, and today it was completed. Ah, no one but God and she herself knew the struggle it had cost! She had moved nearer the cam]jus, and had done darning, mending, and washing for the students. She had not minded the work, but the students had not welcomed the boy into their social life be- cause his mother was doing this " menial " labor for them. Mother and son had both felt the slight keenly — the boy ' s fellow stu- dents could not know how it had hurt their sensitive natures. But to compensate for all this, they had had each other and — today ! This body she now heard speaking — this was the honor man of the class, and her son ! Kut now the orator takes his seat, and when the applause that follows has ceased, one of the young collegians, in cap and gown, rises and begins to speak. And this boy, the honor man of his class, is her son ! Now he has finished speaking, but they are not permitting him to take his seat. Rounds of applause come from all parts oi the house, and his mother — silent tears flow down her withered cheeks. Why are they putting that medal on him? Oh, yes! She remembers now that her son is valedictorian of his class. Why, he is at her seat — No. 11, Row I, Center — is offering his little mother his strong arm and leading her to that platform be- fore all those strange faces. She sees him take the shining medal from his coat, and then, from far away, as if in a dream, she hears a voice saying, " Render unto me the things that are mine, but give to my mother that which is hers. All that I have been, all that I am, all that I ever hope to be, is through her loving self-denial. Will you let me give her her due? " Then he places the golden trophy upon her shabby dress. And she — she can only smile through her tears and whisper, " Thank God, I have had more than my reward. " M. C.

Sunday afternoi in. ' The weary, monotonous voice of the " aiT ' -girl thrilled with 8U])i)ressed mirth as she rei)eated this amusing advertisement. At the widower ' s " all right " she hung uj) the telephone, laughing merrily to herself. " Wonder what lie will get in answer. " she smillingly mused. Albert Smith sal smoking f n the eranda in a rather dis- gusted frame of mind, early Sunday afternoon. In the first place, his conscience was rather troublesome, lie was suj)- posed to be keeping an important " |)revious engagement, " yet he sat alone mi the eranila. placidly smoking. 1 le had been very attentive to Miss Hryson. the wealthy young Eastern girl whom his mother had invited out for the summer with a very obvious |)uri)ose ; but today Miss Bryson ' s pretty little air of iwnership had irritated him and her, " Come, boy, weVe going to the beach this afternoon, " had prompted him to deliberately and smillingly lie : " Sorry. Queen l ' " lizabeth. hut 1 ha e an enga gement this afternoon. " She had regarded him with hurt sur|)rise; and after one search- ing, reproachful glance, his motlier had called the chauffeur and given directions. As the machine started, Rlizabeth Hryson had half turned and from her pretty pouting lips had floated back the word. " Deserter. " . lbert was thinking i f her now. She certainly was beauti- ful, vivacious, and vet — what more coidd a man ask? 79 As if an answer to his sik-nt (|uestion. there came to his mind a i)icture of a frcckcled-faced. frank-eyed, laus hing girl dressed in cahco, a pail swinging rhythmically on her arm as she sang sweetly and joyously, on her way to the creek. Clearly as on that first day when, hunting in that region, he had suddenly come ui)on this woodland child, there came U him mnv the fair picture, with the faint echo of her song, w dth the cool breath of the woods, with the music of the stream and the murmuring of the pines. Those two haj)py months of happy friendship! ilc had re- turned to the city with the vivid memories of the fearless, boyish, yet withal sweet and womanly mountain maid, " Rob, " for im one ever called her Roberta. The sudden death of his father and the responsibility of an involved business had gradually dimmed summer recollections. But in his reverie today memory was bringing picture after picture lor him to linger over with a certain wistful longing and delight. The longing became keen and intense, the longing to see " Rob, " to listen to the bright banter of her gay moods, and to the sweet seriousness of her reilective moods; to climb to the mountain to])s with her, and in the silence of perfect sympathy, to watch the sunsets " changing hues of crimson, bronze, and gold, and the stealthy march of the purple shadows. Albert flung his cigar away and sprang up suddenly. Two women were coming up the walk, one a stout Irish girl with a face that looked as if a drunken " Pat " might have lovingly flattened its pudgy flabbiness in a heroic attempt to remold its expression " nearer to the heart ' s desire, " the otiier a slim girl with a scared look, whose clothes inight justly have been sent to the Misfit Clothing Store. s(j miserably did thev adjust them- selves to the present owner. The Irish girl marched boldly up the steps, and the other followed timidly in her wake. " Be you the widower? " The cpiestioners blue eyes surveyed Albert with a look of perplexity. Albert was decidedly taken back at the startling question. His face expressed utter bewilderment as he reiterated. " The wid- ower? " " Sure, the widower who wants a housekeeper. Ain ' t this 1020 Leighton? " There was amusement mixed with . ll)ert ' s amazement, and he laughingly replied, " The address is alright, but there is some mistake about the widower and the housekeeper. " The Irish girl thrust one hand into her huge bag, and after considerable fumbling, produced a newspaper clipping and handed it to Albert with a defiant gesture. He read it through hurriedly, and then said, " Well, it cer- tainly is peculiar: but I assure you we ' ve no need of a house- keeper here, and the ' ad ' was never put in by this family. ' ' " Well, it do beat the world ! " ejaculated the Irish girl as she stepped heavily down the stairs, her silent com]ianion meekly following. Albert watched the two extraordinary lor)king women as they walked down the street, their mutual sense of indignation en- gaging them in conversation, and there was an amused, but not contemjjtuous smile on his lips. Suddenly he exclaimed, " By George! I ' d better escape. There ' ll pmbably be hundreds answering such an interesting ' ad ' as that. " Too late! .Already there were women coming up the walk. He started to make a hasty retreat, but on second thought he decided to remain. There was a spirit of fun in Albert, and it lociked in his eyes now as he stole a covert glance at the two. " I ' m keeping an engagement all right. " he muttered. Tall, angular spinsters who regarded themselves as " unclaimed treasures, " and therefore not debarred by the widower ' s scathing; remark in regard to " old maids " ; flaxen-haired, gentle-faced women came in answer to this singular advertisement. Albert grew weary of explaining, and the ridiculous situation soon lost its amusing features. He told Hannah, the hmise- keeper, the formula of explanation to make, and with a relieved sigh strolled into the garden. As he passed the summer house a flash of blue caught his eye. He went to the entrance. A girl whose face was hidden in her arms, half reclined in an attitude of utter weariness and abandonment. Hearing his steps, she lifted her head. One long look, then All)ert exclaimed in a whisper, as though he feared to shatter a dream. " Rob ! " Her first expression of incredtilous arnazement changed to one of wondrous sweetness and joy, and all the hungering love of the past two years was revealed unconsciously in that glance 30 She arose, but swayed dizzily, and Albert caught her in his arms. Considerably later they came down to the earthly level of ex- planations. Jestingly, but with real wonder, Albert asked, " Did you drop from the clouds, little mountain girl? " " You did not know, of course; but Daddy died a month ago. " Albert drew her closer to him, and she felt his sympathy as she paused to gain control over her voice and wijjc away the tears that started. " There was little money left. I was advised to come to the city, where it would be easy to get work, and where I could save my tiny cai)ital ; but when I arrived, I found that work was not to be had without ]jrevious ex|)erience and refer- ences. 1 looked for something to do day after day. My money dwindled away. Oh. Al, the city is terrible. terri1)k- ! and I have missed the mountains so! " Again her voice broke. " No birds, no running water, no odor of pines, no sunsets, no breadth, no room! just stifled and cooped up in a dirty, smoky, heartless city, existing, not living! Without money, without work, even existing became a serious problem. Today in desjieration I started to answer an advertisement for a housekee;)er. by a widower who ])referred a country girl. " She was absorbed in her own bitter feelings and did not notice Albert ' s sudden start. " I dicl not want to do that kind of work, but I was forced to do something. I — I walked from town out here. I came u]) the side driveway thinking this was the right place, and — " Iler voice had become low and indistinct — " and 1 was faint and dizzy, frightened, and hung — " the last word trailed into vacancy as her head drf)oped heavily on .MIterl ' s shoulder. ' ith a cry of dee]) concern. .Albert lifted her and carried her into the house. I lis mother and Miss P.ryson were just stepping out of the automobile. . t the sight of . ll)ert entering the house with a girl in his arms, Mrs. Smith shrieked and i lizabeth Rryson stood still with a look of hauglity |uestioning. .Albert vouchsafed no explanation except. " Help me, mother; Rob has fainted away. " Two days later Elizabeth Bryson set out for her home town, bidding Albert a very frigid good-bj ' e. The girl in the advertising department hung uj) the telephone with Hushed cheeks. An irate German had just given his opinion of such a careless, foolish, idiotic mistake as writing 1020 Leighton for 1020 Clayton. There were tears of vexaticju in her eyes as she hmketl up. A well dressed young man and a sweet-faced girl were standing near the desk waiting. " Are you Miss Hrovvn? " " Yes, " was her brief rejjly. " W ' e were told at the counter that ynu are the young latly who took this advertisement. " .Xervously she glanced at them, then admitted wearily, yet half defiantly. " ' es. I took it and made the heincnis error " — she paused to give full force to her sarcasm — " of writing 1020 Leighton for 1020 Clayton. " Vhat had they to .say? .At least they could not excel the old ( lerman widower in expressive use of the English language, she consoled herself. The young man Hushed, looked a bit embarrassed, then pro- duced a five-i)ound box of chocolates from the pocket of his overcoat, and laid it on the desk. .At the girl ' s jiuzzled, ques- tioning look he half staiumered, " ' ell. y — o — u — see, it ' s this way. ' ou did me a wonilerfully good turn by that mistake. " lie looked proudly and lovingly at the young girl at his side, and seemed to beseech her to continue the ex])lanation, which, after a merry teasing laugh, she did by stot)]iing and kissing the " ad " -girl, whis|)ering softly. " We ' re engaged, dear, and I ' m so hapjiy. The " ad " brought nu- to him; and though not a wid- ower, lie nei-ds a housekeeper lor life, nevertheless. Good-night, Cu])id. " The telephone rang, and in a voice tempered with the cpiiet- ness of hajipincss and the sweetness of chocolates, tlie " ad " -girl answered, " .Advertising! " 81 Because of Little Jim Almiist six moiitlis liad elapsed since Clara bad taken their hoy and gone " to nidther ' s. " What a terrible year it had been for jim Martin! It sometimes seemed that his longing lor the boy would compel him to go to his wife and child, but his stubborn ])ride withheld him. It was during one of his hours of inward struggle that he plodded wearily through tlie drifting snow to his boarding house. He heeded not the stinging sleet which the keen north wind flung angrily in his face, for lie was re-li ing in memory the days before he and Clara had (piarreled. He could see the slim figure standing in the rose-covered door- way of her father ' s house when he came to woo her. He could picture her in the simple white dress she had worn. when, four years before, they were married in the little brown church, iiut dearer even than the memory of the fair girl bride was that of the ])ale, proud little mother, as she lay beside her first born. How glad she had been that the baby was a boy ! She had insisted that he, too, be named James; then she would have " a " T5ig Jim and a Little Jim, " she had said, as she smiled weakly up at her husband. Now it was all over. He would never see her again unless by some passing glance. But oh! their boy, curly haired Little Jim, with his mother ' s laughing lips, and the big brown eyes which people told him were like his own ! Somehow his thoughts drifted to the time when, a year before, he and Clara had anxioush ' watched through the long night as their baby lay tossing with fever. Suddenly he collided with someone. L ' pon his exclamation the boy said, " Oh, it is yo ' . Miste ' Ma ' tin? I jes ' been to j-o ' boa ' din ' place an ' the missis done tol ' me yo ' ain ' t home yit, so I jes " sta ' ted out, a-thinkin ' I mought meet yo ' ! Heah ' s a tele- graph fo ' yo ' . " Jim snatched the yellow envelope, and tore it open with an anxious face while he walked (|uickly to the nearest street light. Again his thoughts reverted to Little Jim. By the flickering light he read : " Come quickly. ( )ur buy is very low and sinking fast. " Clara. " His lips were white, and he reeled slightly. " Anyfing de mattali, Miste ' Ma ' tin? " asked the negro, [leer- ing at him through the shadows. " Baby boy, baby boy! " said Jim with a catch in his voice. Then, scpiaring his shoulders, he went on. " You must help me, Joe, for I ' ll have to ride over to Creston to catch the eight o ' clock flyer. Saddle Uolly and bring her to the door as quickly as you can. " He ran the remaining half bluck, and rushed blindly up to his rooms, where, with fumbling haste, he exchanged the light over- coat he was wearing for a heavy one of fur. Then he plunged downstairs, and after he had impatiently stamped up and down a moment, Joe appeared with the horse. Springing to the saddle, Jim struck the astonished mare sharply, and, with a bound, she was ofif. He bent low on her neck, urging her on, telling her it was for the boy, curly-haired Little Jim. . nd the horse seemed to understand, for she fairly skimmed along. On they raced over two miles of good road. Then a turn to the right found them in snow drifted deep by the whirling wind, where, strain as she might, the brave little mare could make but slow ])rogress. As he urged the horse on. Big Jim found himself repeating the prayer of his boyhood: " Now I lay me down U sleeji, I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep. Half way there, Dolly! Just a little faster! " The horse stumbled, and fell to her knees. " L|), Dolly, up! " Oh, don ' t waste a second! " he pleaded; then huskily he went on, scarcely knowing what he said. " If 1 should die before I wake, I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to take. " His keen ears caught a faint whistle. The train ! The train ! " Oh. Gf)d. " he cried, " I don ' t know how to pray, but won ' t you help us to make the train? And, oh, don ' t take my baby before I get there. " Over and over he repeated there words. He coidd now hear the rumble of the approaching flyer. 82 " Faster, Dolly, faster! ' c " vc got to make it. " Attain he struck the strainiiitj mare. With dilated nostrils, she shot forward, and a moment later he drew u|i shar|)ly al the station. ! ' ' lint iny; himself from the horse, Jim Martin tossed the reins to an aston- ished truckman, and swunu; aboard the last car just as the train ]iulled out. Clara knelt beside the little white bed, her head buried in the c i erlid. .As the door opened, she raised a face, no Ioniser laui; ' h- ins -lipped and rosy-cheeked. A heavy black braid hung o er each shoulder, and the grey eyes were misty with pain. She rose, look a tottering stej) toward her husband, and would have fallen had he not caught her. " Here. la_ - her on the couch, " directed the nurse, coming (piickly from the op])osite side of the be(l. . s he did so. the .gray eyes. o])ening, met the brown ones. " I ' m all right, " she said faintly. " N ' ou ' d better lie still, " .said the nurse. liig Jim turned to her. " The boy? He still — still lives? " " ' cs. " the nurse answered. " ' { " hank tiod. " he murmured dexoutly. and knelt l)eside the wliite bed. Was this his boy, this thin little shadow of I ' aby jim? . s he inishecl back a ringlet of fair hair, he felt a soft hand on his own, and found Clara kneeling beside him. The nurse, with a woman ' s intuitive understanding, quietly left the room. " Jim — Jim. it was all a mistake. 1 found out afterward. I ' ut oh I let ' s forgixe eacli other before our boy goes. " He put his arm aroimd her. " ' es. sweetheart. I don ' t blame you for misunderstanding. If 1 hadn ' t been so proud and stul)l)orn I should ha e explained. " " Maylje this is Cod ' s way of Ijringing ns together, " she added, after a pause. " Perhaps, dearest. It ' s hard. oh. so hard, but Mis way is best, " said ISig Jim, brokenly. The sick child stirred, and threw up his little hands. " Call tile nurse. Jim. " lie did so. and the doctor, who hail been summoned away for a short time by anitther ])atient. fol- lowed. A glance told his practiced eye that the crisis had come. " Co into the next room. " he ordered, . - ilently they complied, and, hand in hand, listened with bated breath as the nurse and the doctor struggled with the black- winged angel. . n hour dragged b_ ' . ' l " he nurse opened the door. " The crisis has passed, ' our bov will li e. " she said. i 83 A Modern Portia Ruth smothered an exclamation of delight as she stepped out on the t)bservation platform of the " Limited. " The saiuly cactus beds and low, rocky buttes which all day had dazzled the eyes with their glare and heat had undergone some mystic change. The buttes stood out here and there like castle ruins or homes of fabled giants. Lights of palest pink and blue hung over and around them like a filmy veil. The air was cool, fresh, and sagey. Just over the buttes on the right, fiery red clouds caught up the glow of the setting sun and flung it back to paler, fleecier clouds beyond. Ruth stood motionless, drinking in great breaths of the cool, sweet air, and watching the changing lights (mi the distant buttes till they faded and died, leaving only a blue, indistinct mass against the star-lit sk} ' . Soon, to the left, the lights of a small town twinkled through the border of jjoplar trees, and the engine glided Ijy the tiny park and little brown station house, to stop panting before the great oil and water tanks. Ruth leaned over the railing, dream- ily whistling the prelude nf " La Boheme " and watching the people hurrying to and fro, or talking in groups on the plat- form. Bruce Kathlet, on his way to the mailing car with some letters, paused an instant involuntarih- to catch the old familiar strain — his favorite. Just as he stopped, a curtain in the station was raised, letting a stream of light fall full upon him, and startling Ruth from her reverie. The song stopped. Ruth caught a glimpse of a broad-shouldered, well-built man in a gray business suit and a gray felt hat, beneath which showed a perfect, clear- cut profile. Bruce carried away an image of a slender girl with soft, fluflfy hair blowing slightly in the breeze. The train started on and Ruth went back to her car. She settled herself comfortably and picked up her book; but the story, which had been interesting before, had somehow lost its charm. " What impossible, foolish, love-at-first-sight stories Farland writes! " she commented, as she tossed the book aside and gazed absently out of the window. " I wonder what that kind of man finds to keep him in such a desolate place ; mines, I suppose, " she mused. " Such a profile! And such broad, well-set shoul- ders! What kind of eyes did he have, I wonder? Surely they were large and brown and expressive. Silly, have you turned sentimentalist that you begin to rave over a man seen silhouetted before a Nevada desert station? You ' d better not criticize Far- land! " and she picked up the disdained book and tried to assume interest. " Queer Imw a little snatch of song will get hold of a fellow at times and carry him back to other days, " reflected Bruce as he walked back to the hotel. " How daintily and airily the girl whistled it ! I could almost see her eyes sparkle and hear her tinkling laugh. By George, I ' d like to know he r. Any girl who loves that song well enough to whistle it as she did ought to be mighty fine stuff. La Boheme is to be played next week at home, I believe. I guess I ' ll take a vacation and go home after all. " Helen Kathlet looked up with a rougish smile from the letter she was reading and glanced across the table of her chum. " Bruce is coming home for a short vacation. Isn ' t that glorious? I have been begging him for some time, but he has resolutely pleaded ' Business, ' till now he has finally succumbed to my pleadings. He has a high opinion of you, Di ; I hope you won ' t disappoint him. " " Why, I have never met him. Ydu know he didn ' t come to your graduation. " " Well, you listen and judge for yourself. " ' Dear Hun : I can ' t stand the pressure. I leave for home tomorrow. Don ' t flatter yourself that yotir sirenic pleadings and the ravings about your charming chum broke my resolve to attend strictly to business. It was a snatch of La Boheme whis- tled so beautifully by a girl on the " Limited " tonight that my rock walls of high resolve and iron props of business were broken down and I was left helpless, longing for the pleasant evenings with you at the piano and for the operas I know you will enjoy this week. ' " " I wonder — " broke in ' " Di. " " What? " " Nothing; go on. " 84 " ' Say. Ilun. couldn ' t ymi use a few iiKire arljectivcs in describ- inj.:;- that " dixincly lieautiful. fascinating. schi)larly lawyer chnni " of yours? 1 was in hopes she wouldn ' t reach you until after the ojx ' ra week, but since she has — she arrives tomorrow, 1 believe — I s uppose I ' ll ha e to make the best of it. I ' m sure she is " |)er- fectly charming " — mannish shouldered, oratorical i)iced, dresses in last year ' s styles, wears her Jiair severely, and ajjpears at break- fast with a load of jjooks, ready for a day ' s cjuiet study and medi- tation in the woods. I never saw a girl yet who tried the Portia stunt and didn ' t answer the al)ove (lescri|)tion. I can ' t see why you chose Iter for a chum, but you always were erratic in some things! liowcxer, 1 will try to l)e ci il. at least, but 1 shall expect ycju to rusllc si)nie suitable scholarly escort. I decline. Old Logger will do; he ' ll talk law enough to please her " schol- arly " soul. ' " " Helen Kathlet. what have you been telling him? How cr- fectly ridiculous! " And both girls burst into peals of laughter. " I hate to disa])point hiin. " she continued, " since he was so sure he would find me so ' perfectly charming. ' " " You won ' t, anyway, Di. He ' s an old bear to turn my praises into satire! I ' ll fix him! " " Helen. I ' m not going to disa] ])oint him. " exclaimed Di. her lilue eyes twinkling mischievously. " Listen. Where ' s that old dress of yours with the big puffed sleeves and broad tucks on the shoulders? " " Stored away upstairs. Why? " " Go bring it, please, " said Di. beginning to ]ndl down her hair. " I i. you ' re not going to, really? ' ' " Don ' t you think me scholarly enough? 1 won ' t really have to know such a lot, you know. T c ' ll let Mr. Logger talk to me. " " Di. that ' s great. " cried Helen, catching her friend and whirling her aroimd the room in a breathless two-step, releasing her only to dash upstairs for the dress. When she came down " Di ' s " hair was drawn smoothly and tightly back and coiled in a thick, h eavy knot. .A few i)apers in the shoulders of the dress ]iroduced the proper mannish shoul- ders. " Where ' s the eucyclo])edia? " she gas|)ed. between ])eals of laughter. " That ' s the finishing touch. Xow ! do I get the ])roper ■perfectly charming, scholarly expression ' and the correct stride as I walk to my ' woodland nook for (|uiet meditation and study ' — in your brother ' s fax ' orite hammock? " The sound of whistling came through the o])en window. Helen started. Downstairs thev found Bruce. " Hello, IJruce, you old dear; it ' s mighty good to see you home again, " exclaimed Helen, .going to him and .giving him the old- time little sister hearty kiss. " Di. here ' s the big brother. T?ruce, Miss Ruth Dimon. " Helen coughed suddenly and turned to stir the fire as " Di " grasjied llruce ' s hand with a vigonnis gri]) and said, in sonorous tones : " (Had to know vou. . lr. Kathlet. " 85 " Why didn ' t you telen raph, liruce? I s ot ymir Icttur nnly an hour ago. We could ha e met you. " " O. 1 thought I ' d ju.st walk in as if I hadn ' t liecn away, " he laughed. " Where ' s motlier? " " In the sewing room. 1 think. Shall 1 call iier? " " No, I ' ll find her there. " " You ' re all right. Di, " llclcn hurst out as soon as the door closed. " I could hartUy keep my face straight- when I saw the T told you so ' expression on his face. You ' ve succeeded so far. He ' s not disappointed. A ' c " ll have to explain to father and mother before dinner, or they will ne cr recover from the shock! You look awful, Di ! " " Thanks. " After dinner, when the " Lawyer " had gone to the library to study, Bruce cornered his sister. " Now, if you can tell me any sane reason why you pick such a stick for a chum. I ' d like to know it! She is beyond my wild- est fancy ! " " Really, Bruce, you misjudge her. She is very attractive and lovable when yon know her. She ' s a genius, Bruce, so witty and clever. " " Ilum-m-m, l(5oks like it. " " You have to overlook a peculiarity in a genius, Bruce. " " Yes, perhaps ; but not a dozen ! " " Try to like her. I ' m sure you can if ycni will. " " O, I ' ll be civil enough. I ' ll take you sailing if she can leave her books long enough. She ought to make a good hand at the sails. My hand hurts yet from her hand shake! Come, let ' s sing. " Later, when the girls were together, the conversation was repeated, amid much laughter and joking. ' hen " Di " appeared in the breakfast room the next morn- ing with a heavy volume on her arm, Bruce glanced significantly at Helen, but, determined to get the disagree able duty of en- tertaining her over as (|uickly as possible, suggested a sail that morning. " Di " declined on plea of looking up a particularlv elusive jioint of law, picked up her books, and strode out toward the pines back of the house. " A most charming, sociable creature! ' ' commented Bruce; " a most charmintr and loxable girl ! " " Di " cautiously re-entered the house by the kitchen door and reached her room, where Helen awaited her. Bruce, passing the door a few moments later, was mystified to hear shrieks of laugh- ter, and two girlish voices in animated conversation ; but. fortu- nately for their plans, he did not hear what was said. " How long are you going to keep this thing us, Di, " asked Helen, " ' e ' d better call a halt soon, or he ' ll get sus])icious and spoil the climax. " " 1 think so, too, " replied " Di. " " I was nearly caught today when 1 went down town. I thought you and he were sailing, but I suddenly came face to face with him on the corner. I ducked my head and hurried by. but he gave me a iueer look as if he half recognized me. " " Tomorrow is the o|)era. " said Helen. " Let ' s have the climax then. I persuaded Bruce to get a bo.x, though he wouldn ' t till I promised you should sit in the back. Isn ' t he awful ! You can put on your pretty ]Mnk silk, and wear your long cape. We ' ll plan to arrive after the lights are turned out, and I ' ll keej) his at- tention till you are ready. Then the heroine will attract the hero ' s attention, and the hero will gaze bewildered at the ' divine- ly beautiful, fascinating Modern Portia. ' " " Ah! quite a dramatic climax — worthy of Shakespeare himself, and. in the words of Shakespeare, " I ' ll do my durndest ' to look the jiart ! " The last box was filled just as the lights were turned out. The orchestra was softly playing the prelude, which had been often in Bruce ' s mind since the incident at the station. Absorbed, he saw nothing but the picture of the sweet, girlish figure on the car i: latform : he could almost hear her as she softly whistled — or, did he really hear her? Surely he could not mistake that which had so impressed him. Turning, his surprised brown eyes met her laughing blue ones. She made a pretty picture in her pale pink gown, her fluffy brown hair brushed lightly back from lier delicate face, her lips curving saucily. " ' ou? ' ere ynu the one? " he asked softly. " It was a glorious evening iut there on the desert. I couldn ' t help whistling. But, " she added saucily, " a Modern Portia must be ])ardoned one peculiarity. " " Even to the twelfth one.

Center (jum]nng) This year ' s hasket hall season has been anything; " hut a marked success, although the Senior team has made a strong effort to keep the game alive. The first of September theSeniors met and re-organized their Junior team of last year, which. Ijy the way, was an exceedingly good one. This year Elsie Kirchner was elected captain and Emma W ' ilhelmi, manager, . fter the election of officers an effort was made to persuade the Juniors, also to organize a basket ball team, but they did not seem inclined to do so. It was too bad, too. for there is certainly some splendid material in the Junior class, which onl_ - needed some good stiff ])ractice and firganiza- tion to make an all around good team. The Junifirs, however, have one more year so let us hoije that they will show us what they can do. In ()ctol)cr the Senior team challenged the Juniors to play them an interclass game. In a great hurry the Juniors rushed around and gathered together a temporary team. The game was started, although it was " called off " in the last third. It was generally conceded, however, that the Seniors would ha e been the victors had the game been finished. This was the only game of importance although they have had some good practice games. There is no excuse for the girls not having two good strong teams and they should be able to play outside schools next year, for the} ' not only have the support of most of the faculty but of otir .president as well. Surely that is encouraging. Here ' s to better success. In these days of clear skies and sunny weather the tennis courts should be constantly in use. There are few more delight- ful sports than tennis, and these energetic spring days are just right for its enjoyment. Some of the girls have practiced diligently during the past winter as often as the uncertainty of the weather would permit, in an effort to make the sport popular at Normal, and their efforts have been rewarded by the formation of a tennis club. The club as yet is only in the process of organization and one preliminary meeting has been held. Up to this time, however, no officers have been elected and very little has been done. The purpose of this club is to stimulate the interest in this particular branch of athletics. Each member will be assigned a definite afternoon on which to play and will be assured of having the court on that day. In addition, arrangements will be made for teaching the game to members desiring to learn. In the ftiture the club hopes to hold tournaments and meet other schools at this delightful recreation. The organization has the heartiest approval of both Miss Jacobs and Miss Keppie. Then, too, a great incentive has been given the club by the addition of two new tennis courts, with which Doctor Millspaugh has generously jirovided us. This will do away with the disappointment of not being able to play on account of limited space. As practically all of the girls are provided with tennis shoes, and the balls cost very little, the only real expense connected with tennis will be the purchase of the rackets. Let us ho]3e from now on that the club will flourish and tennis will become one of the most ])Opular ])astimes at Xormal. NOT FOR HIM.

" 98 Captain Ball This is the first year that captain hall has Ikcii tried here, and so far it has been a great success. Miss Jacobs gathered together those who were interested in basket ball and organized a team for ca])tain ball. As the latter game is very similar to the former the girls were soon doing good team work. .After they undresldud the game Miss Jacobs invited the Cnm- 111 lek girls In come and " jjlay " with her girls and the invitation was i)r(im])tly accepted. ' l " he teams met several times and alter- nated in claiming the victory. iJut neither was discouraged bv defeat and ])racticed diligenth ' for the great day to come. On Thursday. December 22nd the final game was played. It took place in the gymnasium of the Normal school. The teach- ers of the Institute had assembled there thai day. for it was Physical Training day. Uoth teams did splendid work, but Nor- mal did the best, as was shown in the close score of 4-.i. Captain ball is a good clean game, and although comparali el) ' new, has found favor in the eyes of the public. As there is an abundance of girls at . irmal, why not lia e a good team of caji- tain ball next vear? Mabel . . I)e .Mars. Beta Omicron Rho Tennis Club There have been sexeral tennis chibs tnrnu-d this term, but one, namely, the lieta Onn ' cron Kho, has set the pace for all the rest. This club was organized from the Senior . class early in the term and dming its existence has indulged not only in many exciting but has also S])ent many good social times together. During the Senior 11 term there was a swinnning match at Ilimini and a house-])arty at Ocean I ' ark. Later there was a weiner bake at licho I ' ark with a dance in the club house of the ICcho I ' ark idayground during the evening. We expect to have many more gtjod times before we leave. mi ' Those belonging to the club are .Miss Helen E. Mathewson. Miss i-.mina Kobinson.

Rah! 99 We arc SDrry to say that athletics have lieen sadl} ' nejj;lecteil in our school during the past year. We don ' t know jnst the reason for this. Perliaps we are so busy with the devehapment of our brains that we have no time to spend in the devehipment of our bodies, or perhaps we think we are taking sufficient exercise when we go into the g -mnasium twice a week and dance folk dances or swing Indian clubs. This is fine, we all know that it is; but it seems hardl} ' enough recreation wlien we- consider the many hours spent in close application to our studies. Then in addition to the exercise and pleasure derived from athletic sports, there is the honor of the school to be considered. Surely we can spare enough time for practice so that we can meet some of the other city schools occasionally in contests, ' e certainly should be able to find among our students enough girls to organize teams in basketball, vollevball. basel all, handball, football, or any other kind of ball one may desire. The boys have drtipped out of the athletic field entirely this term and seem to be waiting tor the girls to do something in that line. Xow, girls, is the time for us to show what we amount to. I erhaps in the near future, in obtaining the llecting ballot, we will be (iy grateful for the muscular power gained through our athletic training at the Los ,- ngeles State Xormal School. For yott know, Syh ' ia I ankhurst says, " ' e must he militant to win. " Again, it does seem as though we should show more appre- ciation of the facilities with which this school has generously provided us for the development of athletics in its numerous branches. We have excellent equipments. ' e have the best kind of a tennis court, good Ijasketball courts, both indoor and outdoor, ro.im for volleyball or baseball in the gymnasium. And last but not least, from now on we shall have perfect weather. Of course, when it is raining during the winter time we cannot use the tennis courts, but how about the gymnasium for the various kinds of ball? It is always ready for use except, of course, on Friday afternoon. Let us hope that this year ' s apathy is only temporary and will soon end. Here ' s to a successful athletic year for Xormal.

The Arab still plows his field with a crooked stick. That method was good enough for his ancestors, and because of the tradition of his race is good enough for the Arab today. The age of tradition, of blindly following the precepts of the honored pioneer in science, merchandising, mechanics, manufacturing, or the kindred arts, is, in this day of marvelous accomplishments, past. The fight for supremacy today is won, not by past reputation, but by the actual achievements of the present. The builders of The ifcmt lKimliii PIANO Hijili Grade Vimiox (Mid ' (liking . i(l(■|liM( ' .s• do not rest their claims of piano superiority on past reputation, enviable though it be, but on the real artistic quality of their product of today. The Mason Hamlin Piano is a piano that embodies in its constructive principles not only the best of the past, but also the most advanced and scientific of modern ideas. Coupled with the genius that has made possible the building of a better piano than the world has heretofore known is a manufacturing organization of unlimited resources and a determination to build that only to which the musical world will pay its highest tribute. At home and abroad the Mason Hamlin Piano stands pre-eminent. There is in its tone, its action, its construction a subtle quality, indescribable, that wins the highest admiration of the real musician on first acquaintance, that, as the acquaintance grows, weds him to the piano forever. Mason Hamlin pianos cost more than other pianos because they are better than other pianos — better in tone, in action, in finish, and in every attribute that appeals to the lover of the very best.

" Xe ah! nevah ! nevah ! " cried her father in hoarse tones. The golden-haired girl sank tottering to her knees, while upon the manly brow of Jones despair sat throned. Five masked men burst hastilx- into the room. " Hands up! " cried the leader, a brawny ruffian. Lenora fell fainting to the floor, while her aged father cried feebly, " Spare nnih !

Grasped in the right hand of the ringleader was the entire family plate of Sir Duncan de Vere (for that was his name). At that moment a dark form slinked through the dutirway. It was Guy de RufTe, the villain. " Think not, " he hissed in low, deep tones, " that you will ever wed yon fair girl. She is mine own betrothed. " The swooning girl unswooned (for she had swooned).

" It was a moment of agony. The aged father had swooned from grief. The illain, a cynical smile on his thin lips, slowl ' rolled a cigarette with one hand, while with the other he fore- closed the mortgage that he brought concealed behind his eye- brow. Jones sprang up, his dark eye burning, " Xora, " he exclaimed. " I will yet save you! Where is your engagement? " With tears dripping from her eyes down her sepulchral face, Lenora pressed a secret spring in her toothl)rush. " It is here, - lgernon, " she whispered. A.

" 124 EDUCATION CLUB. A new oTgaiiization has been added to the clubs which go to make of the Normal School life, a fuller expression of the ideals and purposes of education. The Education Club came into being on Fridaj-, .April 2yth, when -Mr. Edgar S. Smith was elected president, and Mrs. Jessie Helton, secretary. Its organization came about through the feeling on the part of its members that a greater and higher knowledge of the leading educational questions of the day could be gained, than from that which was presented in the regular classes of the school. Addresses by the leading educators of Southern California will be heard ; also those of national educators when possible. In the studies of pedagogy, child-study, school-economy and school hygiene a numljer of very excellent papers have been written by the students, which have never been read to the classes on account of lack of time or opportunity. These papers will 1)1- read and discussed in the Education Club. On April 2 ' ' th, an exceedingly interesting paper upon the " Treatment ami i ' xlucation of Institutional Children, " was read by Mr. N. P. Wilson, who has had ]iractical experience in this work. At the next meeting May 12th, I ' rof. Sickley, Director of Com- pulsory Education, and Supervisor of T " Aening and Special Schools will address the members of the club, and all others wishing to attend, upon the revolutionary w jrk which the special schools are accomplishing in educaticmal de elopmenl. The aim of the clul) is to reach and be of benefit to a larger numi)er of jjeople than those numbered in the club itself and to preserve by ])ublication those addresses and papers which would be f)f I)cnefit to others.
