A brief answer to these qi ' ostioiis may not be uninteresting to some who. perhaps, have never asked them, or thought about thetu. exeei)t in the vague, wondering way in whieh one is likely to think of things re- mole in time or phiee. The original of the portrait was Ira More, the first perma- ent principal of this school, who in the early years of its exist- ance determined its character, and established the enviable rep- utation it has ever since held in the eommuiiity. and as time has gone on. in wider fields. Mr. Flore ' s connection with normal schools began al- most with their beginning. He was one of a group of earnest men who owed their inspiration to Horace Mann, and under that inspiration carried the normal idea into many states, founding mother schools, nearly every one of which had at its head a man who. in turn, was a source of inspiration to those associated with him as teachers or students. Most of these men were gradiiates of one or the other of the two normal schools founded by Massachusetts in 1893 at Bridgewater and P ' ramingham. Some oi them had no wider trainiiig. but Mr. More was a graduate of Yale, as well as of the normal school at Bridgewater, and to that fact, no doubt, he was in part indebted for tlie i-orrect judg iient and the clear-cut s; (ecli so characteri.stie of the man. When the first Illinois normal school was established in 1857, Mr. More l)ecame one of its teachers, and to him fell the work of organization to sucli an extent that his iuqn-ess was strongly stamped upon the institution. On the breaking out of the civil war, he went into the army as captain of a eomjiany composed mainly of his own students, in a regiment known as the " school-masters " regiment. " of which the j)rin- cipal of the Illinois school was the colonel, and in which prac- tically all the men teachers and students served as privates. At the close of the war, he found his health so impaired that he sought the benefit of a northern climate, and removed to Minnesota, where he was for two years professor of Math- matics in the University of Minnesota. P rom 1869 to 1875 he was principal of the state normal school at St. Clouil. which ()Osition he gave up to come to California, hoijing to prolong the life of an invalid daughter. Here he soon became eon- nected with the San Jose school, where he taught until 1883. At that time he was made principal of this school, which had been established the year before as a " branch state normal school " under the vice-principalship of Mr. ( ' . J. Flatt, who remained for several years as teacher of mathematics. Is the portrait a good one? In the main. -es ; but in some particulars it fails to do more than suggest the striking char- ai-teristics so familiar to those who placed it there, the alumni of the earlier classes, who sought by their gift to express their love and esteem for one who had made so deep an im- pression on their lives, and to hand down his memory to those who were to be influenced as strongly, perha])S. as they had been, by the institution over which he had so wisely presided.

We trust, however, that the Expnn- ent of 1912, will speak for itself, and we take this opportunity to recall a few notable achievements of the past in the develop- ment of the book. One who undertakes the pleasant task of becoming ac- quainted with past editions of the Exjjonent. is impressed, tirst of all. with the fact that the book has progressed steadily with the growth of the school. During the early years of it.s exist- ence, it was a modest representative of " The Webster Club, " by which organization it was founded in 1894. However, in 1896, a few enterprising Seniors conceived the brilliant idea of transforming the r|uiet little journal into a mighty class book, which should be publislu-d annuall.v by the Senior idass, as a worthy memento of their triumphs. It was not long before the Exponent, with renewed life and vigor, had become the foremost of the school ' s organizations. The ambition of latter- day editors has been to broaden the scope of the book so that it might be as far as possible a fitting representative of the entire Student Hody. The constant addition of new contribu- tions from all the classes has materially aided the book, both in its broadened aims and in the (juality and style of its productions. With the innovation of the story contests, in this, our Summit ' " 12 Exponent, and the insistent invitations for contri- butions to the art work, we feel assured that opportunity has been given eveiy student, geiiius and otherwise. to make this edition indicative of the best literary and artistic ability the school has to offer. After a period of earnest and strenuous labor, lightened l).y the kindest co-operation and assistance from friends of the faculty and the Student Body, the staff presents the Annual of 1912, in the hope that it is trul.y an ex- ponent of the interests and activities of the students, and of the spirit and ideals of the school. THE YEAR AT L. A. S. N. S. During tlif faf l!)ljl. wc i ' tin- 1.. A. Normal school, have been strenuously engragt ' il in inakiiii; histoi ' v. The year has been one of innovations ami awakened activity. At last, the students have oi-ganized themselves into a " " iKKly | olitie, " and. as such, have hroufrht almut a closer union of interests among the students and a stronger and truer school s|)irit. As a ri ' sult of this new interest and enthusiasm, we have the Outlook, a widi ' -awake little newsijai)er. which started out with the determination to make things happen in Normal and is succeeeding admirably in its purpose. Pei-haps the most significant advance made by the Associated Students, this year is the great movement for student self-government. The idea of a self-governing student body is in dii ' ect accord with the |ii ' incii)les for which our school stands, and. under the direc- tion of the students, who now have it in charge, it will surely develop into a strong helpful organization. So fai ' and fast luive we i»-ogressed. that our lioard of Trustees have, at last, rhosen for us the .site foi- a new home. which will be bettei- adajited to the re iuirements of a school of oui ' size and high standai ' d. Situated in the beautiful north- west section of oui- city, with an outlook of foothills ami green iilleys. this site is almost ideal. It offers exctdlent advantages for the gardens and athletic courts, which the pi ' csent crowded conditions nuike impossible. The new home foi- the Los Angel- es State Normal school, no longei ' a dream of " ' manyana, " " will be the |)eer of any in oui ' country in beauty and adapta- bilit.v to till- needs of its students and another witness to the glory of our great stale. SCHOOL SPIRIT We hear a i|uantity of talk about that all-powerful genie, •■ school spii-it. " We are assured that it is the fii ' st essential of a live school, and in the same br-ea1h. we ai ' e likidv to be told that its existence in our own Normal school is lamentably lacking. A trite i)hrase, " no spirit in .Normal, " " has become the prevailing fashion among certain of our students and it is to the credit of none of us that we have not long since risen in our wrath and shown them the error of their ways. The heart of the ti-ouble is that most of us have very vague ideas concerning the meaning of school spirit. First of all, let us know that school s|)irit is not noise. It is something more real and abiding than tin- occasional bursts of enthusi- asm and good will, which lead one to " root " " for the team, flutter a |)eunant wildly and go home with a sore throat. How- ever, for the benefit of those energetic " Nornuilites " " who feel the necessity of exercising their lungs, we may suggest that they need only start the Senior cowbell tinkling and wait for tilings to hajipen. Surely those persons whose throats and eai ' drums have survived the noisy .joys of a Capitola Ijuncheon will not be niimliered among those who doubt the .-diility of L. A. S. N. S. to make herself heard. The truest school spirit, however, like the noblest patriot- ism, is an everyday affair and it is so often iiuule manifest to us that we grow unseeing. Near the end of our two-years ' course we may come to realize that the many kind and joyful things which come our way during each day are but mani- festations of a s])irit which is beautiful and true. Then if we are honest with ourselves, we shall know the true s|)iril of our school as the helpful comradeship which makes our pla.v hours .ioyous ami sunny, the fine justice which places each girl upon her own worth, and ibove all. Ilie earnest and steady endeavor which aims for thai inner resource of power by which we may front the problems of life earnestl.x- ami with greater compre- hension. Xf who are lea ing Ibis summer ran give no firmer jiledge of faith than that of loyalty to ideals of truth, service, aiiti friendship — to the spirit of the Los Angeles Stale Normal School. JESSE F.

J0MEI3I ALICE Hirnnraui • nnm tou.e,B.5 In a great .school like the Normal, we find many interest- ing parts. We are well acquainted with the phases of life met in our own daily intercourse, such as the Student Body and its many i)roblenis, the different classes and their interests, as well as the various school organizations. But in our school life we have one division practically unrecognized in our daily life, that division without which no school exists. And this is not a riddle, it is merely the affirmation that we are not in touch with our alumni. The alumni of any school is, we may say, its advertisement, for through the alumni we prove our vitality and worth. Then, since we recognize the important part in a school ' s existence that the almuni holds, let us seek to be more in touch with it. We are preparing ourselves to teach and in our preparation are developing into the best media for the school ' s growtli and development. Then, if we are to be a part of this great body of advertisers, to carry the figure farther, let us get in touch with the present agents so that we may profit by their examples. And our Alumni is a noteworthy institution. It was or- ganized by the first class graduating from the Normal, that of 1884. In the thirty years of its life, the organization has grown from a handful of twenty-two earnest members to a gigantic, pulsing body of over three thousand five hundred members. Can we grasp the tale lying in the contrast ex- pressed between these numbers ? Do we not too passively accept our school as it is, a representation of the highest ainis and standards, without understanding the magnificent climb it has made and will make as long as it may exist? With the school, grew ami prospered the Alumni as it must grow and prosper in the future. At this point the application becomes personal, for since we must be competent to take up this work with our fellows, to keep the work growing, let us live more deeply and thoroughly that we may also prosper. At j)resent, the Alumni is organized to meet every fifth year instead of annually as was the custom before 1910. This change has been made on account of the greatness of the assemblage, which does not allow a handling of affairs satis- factorily in the old way. The next regular meeting will be in 1915, and by that time our organization will be vastly greater and more effective. Let us do our share! According to pres- ent provisions, there are now two officers, Jliss Helen E. l Iath- thewson, whom we all love and honoi-. is the j)resident. and untler her control the Alumni is progressing by bounds. The secretary and treasurer is ] Iiss Burney Porter, our Normal appointment secretary. And, in addition to the officers, we like to remember tried friends in the Alumni, who are faculty members. Each nauie cari ' ies a glow of pleasure to us as we recall each one. liss Dunn is foremost among them by com- mon consent, and is closely followed by Mrs. Heck, Mrs. Preston, Miss Whitice, Miss Stephens, Miss Richardson, and Miss Meader. While remembering these well known representatives of tile Alumni, we are anxious to know more of the rest and of their work, to meet Miss Foy and be inspired by her, to visit Miss JIary Stacy in her broad field and gain a part of that great life. Then, knowing more of our Alumni, we long to be a working part of it, that we may do our share. The Alumni has had one great re-union, which was to cele- brate the twenty-fifth amiiversary of the founding of the Normal school, and now it is looking forward to a gigantic reunion, which is to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary and to allow the Alumni to meet once more in the old building, for old memories are always dearest. Then, fellow stu lents, let us not forget our re[)resenta- tives in tliis gi-eat woi-ld, while we work in oi-der to take our place with them. Rather, let us study them and their woi-k so that we may gain the certain aid and inspiration whicli so noble an organization as our Alumni can not help giving us. That our Alumni may ever live and {)rosper, is our heartiest W ' fdi. lilDA ( McCOlI).

With our spirits high and hopeful ; and our face told you so. For we ' d ehosen a profession! which sounded very grand, And we ' d come to sign the contract and with heroes take our stand ! Then we flocked in by the dozen, by the score, and then a few, ' Till the building was so crowded no one knew just what to do. 1 There we stood in crowded hall-ways, once were almost in a line, Till, by hours of weary standing, we had reached that long sought shrine. After many anxious wonderings, and with questions not a few, We then made out several papers, and were told that Ave were through With REGISTRATION. Then came the daily lessons; but they were nothing new , And by process of absorbtion at length we wiser grew. The Capitola Rally was jolly fun and noise, And we gave the " bestest " yelling, although we lacked for boys. And Nature Day, what fun it was in the Arroyo ' s grateful shade, With talking, songs and laughter! Will memory ever fade? There were parties by our sections, and entertainments too ; For our class was always wide awake and full of things to do. After one long year — or was it long? Since time stays never still For the last time we took our books and climbed the Normal hill Before VACATION. STAFF " raBLE L ' Envoy Our history brief is over now. Instead of realities clear and bright, Sweet memories crowd in every heart, Our future moments to delight. Again we climbed that Normal Hill to start our Senior year. It was with perturbation and little thrills of fear, For the day of our teaching had come with our return; Our place as wondrous geniuses as teachers we must earn. With crinkles ruiming down our spines, hearts knocking loud within, We faced those first-day classes our teaching to begin. When " Senior Rs, " a fine, big dance we gave, and it was a lark! Then came a jolly picnic for our Seniors in the Park. When " Senior A ' s " at last we were, with dignity and poise, A " Staff we formed, and turned it loose among the Ex- ponent ' s joys ! A play we gave (and ' t was the best you ' d ever wish to see.) Then clas.s-day came, reception too, and all such jollity. With lessons done, -ith smiles and sighs, the great day came at last.

It startled many classmen, but the young ladies behaved ad- mirably. There was little screaming or fainting, and no one was fatally injured. The most serious damage oc- curred in Dr. Howe ' s II class. The doctor was talk- ing and so did not know his danger, and the class were only awakened by the abrupt entrance of Fireman Feazell through the transom. The doctor was still talking when he was gently, but firm- ly removed fi ' om his danger. Feazell and others distin- guished themselves by their bold and daring rescues. No one knows jtist how the blaze ! started, but it is thought that crossed wires in Room J were the cause. — Nightly Screech Owl. LATEST! EXTRA! [By Special Wireless] We are stopping our presses to correct the above report of a " fire " and to fire the report- er, whose yellow methods were acquired in the service of our saffron contemporary, the con- temptible Nightly Screech Owl. There are two things we will not stand for, not on your life ; slang and sensation- alism. We are just in receipt of an absolutely straight tip, coming as it does direct from the Doc. himself, which puts us wise to j the fact that the " fire " was in reality a pre-arranged device to stirprise the class into a state of conscious self-activity. Several weeks ago many of the class were thrown into a liyi)Uotie trance !)y a physeo- [)hysiological ex|)eriment in the Pedagogy Course, and have since resisted every possible means used to restore them from the Abnormal state to the State Normal. As a last resort. Doc. Howe, who is on the job when it comes to progressive methods, is plotting an experiment, us- ing nitro-glycerine, doubled distilled dynamite, and greas- ed chain-lightening. He de- clares that if this fails, he will retire from teaching, and de- vote the experience he has gained to the growing of " raw material for the Satier-Kraut trade. " STOPS CAR WITH GUN Women will Have Rights [By Special Wireless] PORTLAND ,Ore., — This afternoon about 2 p. m.. Miss Gladys Case left her home in- tending to attend a Woman ' s Rights lecture, given by Miss Louise Kohlmeyer in the Aud- itorium. After she had stood on the corner and waited for a car for five minutes, a car whizzed past, enveloping her in a clotid of dust. After three cars had passed her with " take next car " signs down, Miss Case return- ed to her home, secured a gun, and returning to the corner, waited for the next car. When it drew near she put into prac- tice some of her woman ' s rights theories, walking to- ward the car, she pointed the gun at the motorman and frowned. He stopped the ear and she boarded it. When ask- ed why she had pointed her gun, she said that she did not care to be late to the lecture and the ear had to be stopped. TWO NEW TEACHERS FOR L. A.

Cal. — Yesterday morning about ten o ' clock, during the rush hours, a mad dog dashed up and down the busy business street. He had been in a fight and had been overwhelmed by his adversary. This defeat caused him to lose his temper. Hearing the cry, " mad dog! mad dog! " " fi-om the terrorized passers-by, Miss Millspaugh stepped coolly from her office and shot the dog. He will be buried at 6 p. m. todav. No flowers.

They wander- ed into the Educational, but soon t ' oiuid that the pictures were too mild. They gave vent ' to their feelings of disgust by removing the owner, Mr. Ed- gar Smith, bodily into the street. Upon their return, they i took the entire machine to pieces and destroyed nothing. Miss Helen Kelso, the pianist, plaved a brave part and with- out a doubt saved the -day. She quieted the savages by ' ' Oh, l promise me.

Yeou see, she ' s been goin ' ter " Normal School " naow fur iuite a spell. yaass, she ' ll gradooate sometime long bout next Christmas.

Gosh! but that " class " of her ' n do beat all! They kinder made all the faculty wonder some afore they ' d bin araound i-kule a week: so the skule went ahead and put the hull gang uv ' em under a kind of section boss. He was a powerful good feller, Jane said. Knew as much about hugs and birds and sich things as I know about plantin ' pei-taters; and ho was jest as good natured as the da ' was long. They had a big (apitooly luncheon. ' Jane said, long bout the time that air class went ter " Normal, " and that aii " class teacher of ther ' ii jest sot to when they were all yellin ' and singing ' , and eaper- eil arouu ' like a two-year-old, and kept the hull skule lafin ' with his monkey shines. Vaas, they had him fur boss uv their gang fur two hull terms, and then tei " the distress uv all when they were jest about " Junior A ' s " they heard as how he was ter lea e ' em and go ter another new class as was eomin ' in. Waal, Jane said they were all a heap upsot bout it, but what d ' ye think? When the new term opened up, the hull class was considerable surprised an ' proud-like, when ' twas an- noiuiced as haow Mrs. Hunnewell (ain ' t that a purty soundiu ' name? and Jane says it jest suits her), was proclaimed by the " Faculty " as them Junior A ' s foreman. She ' s mighty accom- plished-like, and Jane sez she knows all about readin ' and actin ' out pieces; can change her voice anyhow she likes jest like a peal uv thunder if she takes a notion, or again like a little innercent lam ' a-bleatin. ' The hull class sots a heap uv store by her, and when the last term was aclosin ' , they was all so afeard as haow she might leave, they petitioned the ' Faculty ' that she might be restored ter them, for another term and. H ' gosh! they got her back sur ' nuff. " When that ' class " cum ter the ' Normal, ' there was only twenty-six uv ' em. Small in numbers, but Oh my! how they did kinder inspire everything as sot eyes on ' em, an ' ' twasn ' t long afore their fame spread all aroun ' the skule and over the taown, and even up ter the ' State Legislatoor, ' till them air fellers jest woke up and considered if sich marvels were true as they hearn on about ' Jane ' s class ' they ' d ' pro- priate funds and build sich a ' Normal Skule ' as was more " worthy the trainin ' uv such students. " Uv course, Jane tells us all about it. and it jes ' seems sometimes as if maw and 1 would hevter go in taown and see that skule and them air " Senior ' 13 ' s. " They ' re dispensin ' knowledge now all uv the time ter the children uv the ' trainin ' skule. ' Children as folks send fur the ' class ' tei experi- ment on when they are trj-in ' out fur teachers. " I jest can ' t think on half naow as Jane told us uv her class, but it ' s true ' nuff that the hull skule and the ' Faeultj ' ' air lookin ' ter the " Senior ' 13 ' s " fur inspiration and forti- tude. T ' other day, the President uv the skule, a mighty well- larned man, riz up in Assembly and said as haow himself and all Californy was alookin ' ter " Jane ' s class " ter subdue and eddicate the furriners, as will soon be apourin ' inter our country, when the " Panamy Canal " is finished. Oh! they all look forward with great hopes ter a revolution uv ed- dication, when them " Senior B ' s " git out over the country ateachin ' . Jane writ that jest t ' other day the skule raised it ' s standard by a good inch and a half. 1 don ' t egzactly know wot she meant, but I reckon that class had somethin ' or all to do with it. " There ' s forty-six of them naow. They ' ve grown in num- bers by attachin ' others from outside. The English teachers jest refer ter some uv the gals of " Jane ' s class " when they are uncommon puzzled over somethin ' or can ' t find a reference book handy, and ten to one ' tis the surest way. Oh, they are a mighty valuable adjunct (guess that ' s what Jane called it) ter the skule, and every last one up there has come ter realize it, so that Miss Dunn, a member uv the Faculty nv great prestige, said t ' other day, ' There haint nawthin ' goin ' that can skin that air class.

PRESIDENTS JENNIE HENSLEE W Bit TL. __ FRRNCES GREENE RftLPH tlEYWOOD BERTHfl " CRRSON ESTHER WEBVER VIVIAN LLOYD WllllRM JONES NORR SPHIN Of course I know jjerfcctly that there has never been a statue that could talk since the days of that interesting Greek affair, but I haven ' t accumulated dust and experience in the auditorium of the Los Angeles State Normal school for nothing. For thirty long yeai ' s, I have seen class after class come into Diy domain for asseinhly. p ' or thirty long years 1 have studied the faces and characteristics of the students. For thirty long years 1 have looked in vain for a class that came up to ray standards. In September, 1910, I thought that I had found the perfect specimen, b it when the halls were thronged in Sep- tember, 1911, I knew that there had entered the very best class yet, and a years ' experience has only strengthened my deter- mination. In the first place, it is th e largest class that I ever saw. Miss Dunn confided to me in a moment of mingled despair and unbelief that so many sections had had to be formed that she didn ' t know how she ever cvuld keep track of them all. That is quantity all right, and as for quality — well, 1 can prove that part. You see, I had to be perfectly sure, so the other night, just at midnight, 1 left my pedestal and quietly crept down stairs to the office and looked at the records. What were the marks? Well, I ' ll tell you exactly five years after you graduate, but this much 1 can say. The name of the class tells the whole story. And the surprising part is that these wonderful beings don ' t look a bit overworked. They are so jolly and good-natured that the teachers all love them. Of course, next year they have to teach, but I ' m not wor- rying a bit on that score. I ' ve even picked out the ones who will be our future critic teachers, and they will be fine ones, though I doubt if they can e(iual Mis.s Matthewson, even if they are splendid. If you want to know more, I ' ll give you an audience some day. Make appointments early, please. farge ' ahv avs coiinting- ] Iy first impression of the building was of halls and stairs, and halls and stairs, and more halls and more " stares. " Who will even forget that first day at Normal ! Can .vou, even you Seniors, remember the day when standing in a long, for- lorn line, you waited for the ae- teptanee of your all-important c-i-edentials. and the little catch tliat came in your breath when, perhaps, ilr. Miller said. " You will have to enter on condition until sufh time as you can pre- st-ut satisfactory credits? " That ordeal over, did you not go to one of the several teachers whose duty it was to make out your program ? Then, with a light heart, for yen thought that your troubles were over, .you hastened to iliss Dunn, the student ' s friend. After waiting an intermina- ble time, she said. " Nest! " With a girl at her side count- ing and cheeking up the classes as the programs were read, the secretary brought back a vivid picture of the French revolu- tion as described by Dickens in the " Tale;, of Two Cities, " in which she might represent the hifrh chief executioner and her teller represent Madame De- counting — counting. " Yes. vour heads came off I At least your high hopes were dashed to the ground, as liss Dunn relentlessly returned the cai ' d. saying, " ilrs. Hunnewell. here ' s another girl, fix her up! Next! " Then began the real work, until finally our programs were properly " Dunn. " accepted, and we began to feel like real Normalites. The next day began the registering in classes, where we stood in long, long lines waiting to get " signed up " . My! but we were tired ! Really, it was (piite hard work coming to Normal, so we insignificant Junior ( " s maintained. Now, however, with one term ' s strenuous experience still fresh in our minds, and after looking over the green ranks of new students, we begin to appreciate the fact that perhaps the teachers may have been tiled as well. Of course, if you insist that we were green, we shall not try to dissuade you. for we know it is hard to shake you from an opinion you have once formed. Have us green, then, if you will, but we are sure that we were not the only ones who were so, for does not the visage of even a Junior A shed forth a pale green light, even to the jiresent day? We are sure, how- ever, that we were a much brighter green than many of the rest. Surel.v it is no disgrace to be bright, even in green. Is not the high and mighty Senior the brightest person in the school? We do not feel so bad; in fact we are a little proud to be " bright " . 1 might laud our girls, were space not so liniited and there so many of us, but of course it is (luality. not (pianity that counts. So here ' s to the boys I Vov the most part we are humbly trying to adajit ourselves to the rules and regulations of the Normal. I suppose we were rather stubborn on the Government question. Perhaps it was due to our " freshiness " that we were so green we didn ' t fully understand it. HoAvever, our class was voted down and the school is comfortably governing itself, despite our weak pro- test. We spoke our minds and tried our little A-ings and have now settlecl down in the Normal nest and are trying to be very, very good to make up for our little flight.

There was some fear acknowledged by the department, that the tiTiu " eligible. " ' necessarily vague in a new connection, would give rise to self- doubting on the part of some, if not all of those young persons tentatively con- sidering the clioiee of a life-work, or of a meal ticket. Consequently, we are void, on the appointed day, the Faculty of the S. M. D. awaited in it ' s office the one or two. possibly three or four young jiersons whose courage or neeessity should render them ' pioneers. It is a matter of history that a day-long proces- sii n of musicians, proved, incipient or aspiring, came and went upon the one hundred and eighty-six stairs, which lead to the Temple of Apollo, and left in its wake thirty-odd who were found eligible to be special musicians. Of the thirty-odd it is entirely safe to state that no two brought similar reeoiiiiiieiulations. i|UHlificatious, or experience. A glance at the first class in C ' hildrens ' songs discovered thirty-odd widely varying temperaments; as manv different attitudes toward life in general and school in particular, and absolute uniformity of purpose. Just what this purpose is, some more gifted bard must word. It is more than a determination to " make good. " It is bigger than :he will to acquire knowledge and ability of a specialized and high- prTced order. It is deeper than the desire to follow art for art ' s sake remun- eratively; more urgent than the desire to win the approval of those whose standards are remotely above present possibilities. Whatever it is, it has made the Special Music Department a place of .ioyous work; of constant, in- tense, even consecrated effort ; of friendly spirit, tolerance and mutual help- fulness. The above mriitioiuHl first Class in Children ' s songs was the fiery ordeal whii ' h fixed the seal of high i)iii ' pose uj)on tlie brow of every (as it happened) young woman in the dei art- ment. At the ln ' ginning of the hour, each special musician €yed every other, inwardl.v suspecti ng her of possessing re- markable talent. Then in answer to the inexorable roll, eaeii young woman got upon her feet and rendered a " Children ' s Song. " Permit us to draw the curtain — close the door. At the end of that hour w r w cie comrades in common cause with a mutual grief, and a single lu)])e, a shai-e of humiliation. Let him who thinks lliat he can sing a " ( hildren ' s Song " sing it for Mr. Goodwin. Pi-rliaps hr can. We could nor. ISut we can — some da.v. If anytiiing further were needed to bind us into a flyiiit; wedge of determination, it luippened to the seniors in thi- Chorus Conducting Class. If foi ' your sins, or in ordiv to acquire an indestructable poise, you are willing to go lo any length of suffering, face yourself in a full-lengtli I ' lir- ror, look yourself in the eye and lead yourself in " The Star Spangled Banner. " Having agreed upon a certain course of action, calculated to bring the best results from a chorus, pro- ceed to try it out upon a class of half a dozen highly special- ized musicians. You may be re(iuested to remove your super- fluous hand ; to lead, and not clutch at the chorus ; to express patriotism to the ends of your hair ribbons. Your efforts and results are then dissected by the class. If this treatment is persisted in daily for a year, we are willing to guarantee a cure of almost anything. In so varied a personnel as that of the Music Department, there is displayed, naturally, a diversity of talents. There are those who excel as harmonists, others who are able historians. We point with pride to our few distinguished vocalists and to our violinists and pianists of professional attainments. There are those whose ears are trained to detect the most delicate nu- ances of harmonic expression ; those in whom rhymed words unfailingly inspire felicitious melodies. Those to whom sight- reading presents no pit-falls, and those whose work in the Training School has set a heart- breaking staniard. A school year has passed. We realize how small a part we have accomplished of that work which we so happily un- dertook; looking back, we see how long a way we have come, and our hnpes are high, for ourselves and for Ihose who com; after us to make a highway where we have blazed a trail. - ■ fe--- ' if •1;. ■ F. ::w£iB Few ill iiuinber. but mighty in spirit aru! We repre- sent the only department in this institution in which men have survived in appiefiabh numbers. Great and wonderful are the works of our beloved wood shop. Here are created street-cars and pin-trays, automobiles and boot-black stand.s, Morris chairs and pigeon coops, music eabiuets and towel rollers. Truly cosmopolitan is our scope of activities. Amid the roar of machinery, may occasionally he heard the sweet strains of " Santa Lucia " or the bellow of ■ " Alexander ' s Rag Time Hand. " While some weary-eyed novice is ]nizzling ovei- the intricacies of the hieroglyphic com- iiioniy known as ■ " working drawing " of taborets, another l)i " iglit-eyed ad( pt, with the greatest ease, is revolutionizing Cathedral architecture or improving bridge building. What is this din that assails your ears as you pass from the work shop? Can it be a iniiialure boiler-factory? Xo, it is only the metal shop. See the mighty arms swell as they liam- iiier the unwieldy metal into graceful vases, jewel-boxes, trays, candle sticks, and what not. ' I ' lie " cop|)er king " holds sway here over the baser metals. Clay modeling next calls our attention. Tn the basement of the main building many a Jlichael Aiigelo is is yet undis- covered. What is that girl with the streak of clay on her face making? Possibly a " vas " or a fern-dish. Here a young man is shaping a eandle-stiek and an ink-well. There a young lady dreams of strawberries and cream as . he moulds a pitcher. Glowing faces and dirty hands and aprons greet you every- where. In the Annex are taught basketry, boolv-bindiiig. leather work, and raffia and reed work. See that young man ' s dis- gusted expression as he sticks a needle through his fingei " in- stead of his raffia basket; or the surprise of this girl as she brushes the hair from her flushed face with hands covered with book-binder ' s paste. Leather work is shown by such articles as liill-books. pocket-books, table mats, ink blotters, and tlie like. Although we are as yet young as a dei)artment, we are . ' trong in worth, and you will hear more from us in the future. So here ' s to the department! Long may it prosper to help to success those who leave its shelter to seek victory in the great new fields of manual training in our public school system. ( UAKLHS H. OXEAL We of the Special Art class feel so keenly the great oppor- tunities that this course has op- ened to those who are coming after us, that we wish you all — graduates, students - that - are, and students-to-be, to know for what we stand. The special art course was opened in the Pall term of 1011, as the direct result of a con- stant demand for departmental teachers of art. As originally planned, the course was one year in length, and was open only to Normal school gradu- ates or to those of equivalent standing. Since then, a two year course open to high school graduates has been organized. The breadth of the present Special Art course makes it possible for those students pos- sessing unusual ability to re- ceive a diploma for supervis- ory, high school, and normal school teaching. As members of the Senior Art class, we wish it known to all that every branch of our course of study has been full of delight and interest. We are constantly striving to do each thing in a better way, to see beauty in the simplest forms of life, and to express that natur- al beauty in terms of Art is our aim. The Special Art course carries you away from the rigid rule of three, into a charming realm, where the spirit of friend- liness thrives. The long sketching trips, the classes in craft- work, design and life-work are full of an atmosphere of help- ful informality that makes for better work, for happier students. The spirit of the whole department is an inspiration to renewed effort. Though that delightful, sympathetic sense of comradism, that harmony of interest and aim so essential to th study of art, work becomes the most fascinating game in the world. As graduating Seniors, the greatest thing we can leave to you is this opportunity to work. JOSEPHINE SEAMAN ROBERTS GUIDE TO THE MAGAZINES Miss Stevens should be accompanied liy " Harpers " ; M-.

" Yes, we know that all you girls upstairs think we do noth- ing but play. But if you will coiue down to the Kindergart- en room some Monday after- noon, and visit our game class, we will show you how very iiai ' d we work. It is no easy matter to turn yourself into a caterpillar, and go " creeping, slowly creeping " ' across the floor, or to be a baby chicken and hop around the circle after a mother hen. An- other day we imagine ourselves birds, and flit among the branches of the trees, which to the casual observer, appear to be girls with their arms out- sti ' etched. Then as butterflies we fly in a different way, paus- ing gracefully for a moment to si]) honey from the flowers. But the hardest work of all comes when we are circus horses. We gallop, trot, and run around the room and sometimes even out into the sunshine, affording much amusement thereby to onlookers. Besides doing all this, we hnve to understand the theory of games and why the child runs, hops, or jumps. We must know what games to play, when to play them, and why we play them Then anything you wish to know about imitation, activity, rythm, or interaction, we can tell you. AVe hear it every class. When we are asked a question and don ' t know what else to reply, we say activity, rythm, or interaction. If you really want to work, register in the kindergarten game class. THREE IN ONE A few of the " grinds ' " of the kindergarten were draped about the study room tables late one afternoon, their heads bowed down, their fingers dripping with ink. Said one Senior, " If I ever finish copying notes, 1 shall be happy. " " Said one Junior, " W ell, if 1 ever finish copying music I shall be happy. " Then from a very brilliant Junior i-jiinc the remai ' k " What is the difference between copying music and notes? " Said the overburdened Senior, " One has rests and the other hasn " t. DR. FERNALD ' S AXIOM " Mine ' tis to question why; Yours, but to do or die. " I Ir. Hummel, (Nat. study much to teach Nature Study , as you do. " — " You don ' t have to know The children know as much She — " Is my hat on straight? " He — " No. one eve shows. " ' This is the tale as it was told to me by ray own great- grandmother, and she died at a very old age, as you may find for yourself by looking at her headstone m the church yard that lieth outside the city of Boston, in Lincolnshire. She died well on to fifty years ago, and I have not heard the story since ; but it is not that kind of a tale which goeth in one ear and out the other. If, as I say, you should take the pains to read the inscription on my great-grandmother ' s headstone, you would find that she was born in the year 1843, in Lincolnshire, a little town which most folks have forgot, and it is of no consequence. Nevertheless, you see by that date that she lived in a time which England hath good cause to remember. And I will now relate the tale as she told it herself, and though I cannot vouch for the truth of it, she being a very old woman when she told it last, and such tales losing nothing in the tell- ing, yet I see no just cause for doubting it. " I was born, " said my great-grandmother, " in the spring of the year 1343, a.,d by that you see that I was six years old and better, when rumor first began to reach us now and then of the happenings all about me. " 1 and my mother and father, and my lirother, Fredei ' ick, he that the tale is about, principally, though it concerned us all, as you will see. lived together on my father ' s farm about twenty or more miles from Boston, in the fen, and just on the outskirts of the little village of Nordshire, which you will not find on the chart, because it hath never come alive again since that year. " My father was a good man, stern in his views, and doing his duty to his neighbor as his conscience dictated. He gained a comfortable living from the farm, above the rent he had to pay for it, wherein he was more fortunate than many in those dismal times. He had a small flock of sheep, too, that he used to pasture on the low hills ' round about our cottage, and some- times Frederick and T, though more often Frederick alone, used to go and fetch them home in the evenings. " There was a pretty view from the top of the little hill north-west of our cottage, and Frederick and I liked to dally along up there to play when we went after the sheep. We could see on all sides the low fen country, vrith here and there a green clump of trees, or the white steeple of a little church that betokened a distant village; and southward the gray walls of the nuuioi-Jiouse, rising steeply among the hedges that ringed it all about Sometimes, on a clear day, we fanci- ed we could see an arm of the sea, beyond the rising ground that hid far-away Boston from our sight. 1 reeolleet it all plainly enough now. though doubtless it made small impres- sion on me then, for children ' s eyes oftentimes take in sights which they do not see until long afterwards. ■ ' i Iy brother Frederick was a sturdy, well set-up lad, and in3 ' sweet mother used to say he was the best lad at heart she ever knew. I recollect him fairly well after these eighty years — brown-haired, with a round, cheerful face, wholesome and good tempered. He was a good brother to me, and we used to have fine times together before that year which, it turns me cold to think of even now. There be few alive now who remember that year that brought such dole to England. It is a l)laek memory. And yet some good came of it, 1 sup- pose, in the end. " I am fain to linger over those days when we lived in peace together, but nothing is done now by shutting my eyes to the recollection of that year. I remember it for what it did to me and mine; and, alas, there were many hundreds of poor soids in Enghiiid who fared worse tiian we. There were hard times in England throughout the year of VM9. My father ' s crops were poor and he lost a goodly number of his sheep, too. I and my brother used to find one dead now and then, when we went to fetch the flocks home in the evenings. My father wore an anxious look upon his face that we did not understand. " On an August afternoon of the year that I was six years old. a mail caiiie riding up on a gray horse and shouled to my lather, whereat he went out to the road, and they talked to- gether for some time, th( stranger meantime shaking his head, and now and then pointing with his hand this way and that. I ' .y and by my mother came to the door, and when my father saw her. he spoke in a low voice to the man on the gray horse, and he rode on. " That night Frederick and I found two more sheep dead. It was a hot night. The air was heavy and without life. We did not stop to play, but came on home in the dusk with the flock straggling slowly behind. We found my mother and father sitting together, and my mother kissed us with a strange look, and fell to weeping. " ' Ah, my babes, ' she said, " ' it will come! It will come! ' " Whei-eat we fell to weeping too, we did not know why. There appeared to be some secret between them. " Two or three days later, my brother and I being at play in the field, the man on the gray horse rode up again and call- ed my brother to him. ' " Tell your father " said he, ' " It liath reached London. Just that, it iiath reached London. " " ' What hath reached London? ' my brother called to the man, but he shook his head and rode on. We went to find my mother, my father not being at home, and when we told her she cried aloud, and wrung her hands. She told my father that nigiit when he came home from Nordshire, where he had been to the court, but whatever it meant, that message, he had heard it there. " ' Ay, ' said he, ' and there be many already that will never see the sun rise. ' " ' Father, ' burst out my brother Frederick, ' what do you mean, and why do you and my mother sit and talk together at night so that 1 cannot get to sleep? ' " ' My lad, " said my father, with a look at my mother, ' Tt is little sleep England will get this year, except the sleep that the Black Death brings with it. " " The Liack Death! " ' It hath traveled from coast to coast, across Europe, said my father, ' and the people fall down before it like flies. They say it hath come up over the mountains like a gre t, gray mist, and spread over the whole north. Now it hath reached England, and there be many dead in Loudon and the sea coast towns already. ' " ' Jonathan! ' said my mother to my father with a look at me. I clung to her skirts with my eyes staring, and my teeth chattered in my head. We were little, Frederick and I, but even children are afraid in such times as those. " After that day my father and mother made no attempt to keep their anxiety hid. News came slowly, but often enough to keep the fear always fresh in our hearts. Frederick and I used to talk in whispers about it wheu we went up to get our poor sheep. A heavy haze hung over the fen for weeks. The air was hot and sultry, and we could look square into the face of the sun at noontide. I and my brother thought he was trying to hide from the sights he had seen. One evening the gray mist seemed to have grown thick and dark over the place where Boston stood. Frederick and I watched it from the low hilltops, and he said. " ' Mother will weep if we tell her it is there. ' " So we said to each other that we would not tell her. But she knew already. The man on the gray horse had come and gone, and my father had quit his work in the field and sat brooding on the doorstep. " My brother Frederick said, ' Mother, if the Black Death comes to Nordshire, when I am a man grown, I will take you away where it cannot follow. ' " At which my poor mother snatched him to her and cried : ' It travels faster than that, my babe, and you will not be a man grown when it gets to Nordshire. ' " My father turned suddenly to her from the doorstep: ' Be still, woman, ' he said liarshly, ' or I shall go crazed! Is it not enough that everywhere I go I hear talk of folks drop- ping in the streets by hundreds, but I come home to hear the same tale over again? ' " My father had aged in the days gone by since the first news came from London. He sat silent for hours gazing over the fen. The black fear was setting in upon his soul. He was not a man to be mastered by fears, neither. But in those times brave men died of fear, naught else. " We never saw the man on the gray horse again. He came from a little village that lay near Boston. We guessed why he stopped coming. " The year of 1:349 dragged on wearily to an end, with toll of death and terror dogging its footsteps. In February of 1350, the Black Death came to Nordshire. We kept hear- ing now and then of it- ravages all around us. Little bands of fleeing, horror-stricken folks wents through the village now and again, and the villagers huddled into their houses to watch them go past. But they always left the Death behind, outside the town. The villagers came to fancy themselves se- cure from it. Once in a while faint sounds of merry-making reached us through the dead air ; but there was no merry-mak- ing in my father ' s house. " My brother and I used to watch from the low hill tops until we saw the red torches blaze in the sullen mist; and by that we knew that the Death had smitten another of tlie little towns that dotted the fen. The air grew fouler and yet fouler. Tlie sun hung like a dead thing in the filthy mist. I recollect how the folks who fled past our house at long intervals stared at us as they went by. And we stared at them. They did not look like human beings. " My father scarcely noticed us now, and my mother, poor soul, was half beside herself. Frederick and I clung to each other for comfort, and never was he better to me than in those last days that ever I saw him. For I come now to that part of my tale wherein ou shall leai ' ii how the Black Death took its toll of us. " One night, in the early part of February, my mother and father sat talking in low tones before the fire, and I and my brother lay on the floor behind them playing, though only half our hearts were in our game, that there was no Black Death in England, and we were living in peace again. I rec- oUeet how the fire-light played upon my father ' s head, and on my mothers face, as she leaned forward on her stool and gazed into the fire with eyes that, I doubt not, looked upon sights that the rest of us could not see. " All at on ce, up leaped my brother Frederick and stootl stared at the window. I followed his eyes and screamed aloud. A woman ' s face was there, white, with staring eyes. Even as we gazed at it, the face vanished, and there came a fumbling at the door, and tlie sound of a voice begging us to open. At that my father sprang from his stool with a great cry, and as he did so the door, whiih was not latched, fell open and a woman stood on the threshold, lean, clad in fluttering rags and carrying in her arms a little lad of about my brother Fred- erick ' s age, though smaller and wasted with hunger and suf- fering. " I remember glancing at my father, and standing open- mouthed at the sight of his face. " ' Get away from my door! ' he shouted. Whereat the woman shrank back and besought us with her eyes. " ' I pray thee, ' said she in the voice of one spent with long suffering. ' Let me come in and warm me and my bairn. ' " We must have made a grim picture in the bare room. The woman clung to her babe, who lay with his eyes shut in her arms, and she kept imploring, now my father and now my poor mother, to let her come in and warm her bairn and get food for herself. " ' 1 have not the IJlack Death upon me, ' she cried. ' Had I took it 1 should be lying two days back on the road with my own husband. ' " Whereat my fatiu-r slioiited louder than before ' The death follows you, then! ' cried he. ' How dare ye bring it to my household, that hath escaped it thus long? I bid you be- gone, begone from my doorstep! ' " lie was in a frenzy of terror, else I cannot account for what he did next. Those were days when men lost their man- hood and were like wild beasts, mad with fear. The woman made a last plea. " ' For the sake of your own bairns, ' .said she, glancing at us where we cowered in the corner, ' let me come in. ' " ' For the sake of my own bairns, I bid you begone from my doorstep ! ' cried my father ; and he snatched up his heavy stool from the floor and ran at her. My mother screamed and caught at his arm, and the woman stepped backwai-d off the tiiivshold into the dark. My father ran to shut the door, but just before he reached it, the woman cried from outside: " ' Watch well your own bairns! ' " And with that she was gone into the dark. " But she brought the Black Death to Xordshire. 8he had stopped first at the manor house, and the servant who opened the door would not give her food; and the next day he died and after him my lord ' s little daughter and next my lord him- self. Thence the woman went on into the town, and within a week the town was stark empty, for those who were not dead had fled in every direction, and the Death followed at their heels. " I know not why, but it passed by us four out of all the village. The folks who fled away took it with them into other towns, and by and by it spent its force, and England was free of it. We got over our terror and went back to our old way of living as the days went on. My father had no one to pay his rent to now, because my lord was dead and tiie miinor house stood empty and staring on the fen. " But my father was a changed man. He worked out in his fields by day and by night he sat brooding over the fire with a look of melancholy in his eyes. Once he told my mother that he had sinned and she cried : " ' So have we all. ' " But he said nothing more, and neither Frederick nor T knew what he meant. But now 1 do. " During the weeks before the Black Death came to Xord- shire. our sheep ran unwatclied over the fen. Food was scarce and many died, but those that were left wandered home after awhile, and other joined tlieiu, so that we had a little flock again, to gather in at night. " About this time we began to note a queerness about my brother Frederick. I saw it first, one day when we were playing on the fen. He turned to ine and said for no reason: " ' Run home and help your mother with the supper. ' " I looked at him in surprise whereat he said: " ' Run home and do not stand staring at me. ' " At that 1 burst into tears and left him and went home. Long after the sun was down he came in and my father said : " ' Where have you been? ' " ' To fetch the sheep, ' said my brother Frederick. " ' The sheep came home alone, an hour since, ' said my father. My brother Frederick said nothing, and my father stared at him awhile and went on eating his supper. The next evening, when I made as if to follow him up the little hill, Frederick said to me: " ' You are not coming. ' " But when I burst out crying, he put his hand on my shoulder and bade me not to weep, but to go home like a good lass and he would come by and by. When he came in that night, his eyes wore a strange look. My father stared at him, and my mother scolded hitn for staying away so long a time, but not a word would my l)rother Frederick sh -. " At length my father took him aside and bade him tell what he did that kept him away, and why the sheep came straggling home alone. But he could get nothing from him, and he told him that he was a wicked lad. " It was my motiier who found out his secret, for he told her one day when he came upon her weeping. And then he wrung his hands and bade her not to tell my father, but she thought he was going crazed, and she told. Then my brother Frederick wept and beat his hands together and cried that he had promised not to tell and now he feared that ill would come of it. " And what he had told was this: That there was a bairn of his own age, though smaller and with yellow hair, who came and played with him on the hill at night, and my brother could not choose but play with him, for he had eyes that seem- ed to hold him there, so my brother said. When my father heard that he groaned, and then he said: " ' Bide at home tonight. I will fetch the sheep myself. ' " Wliereat my brother fell to weeping and begged and prayed my father not to go. But go he would. He was gone out of the house an hour only, but when he came back he was like a man that hath lost his senses. And so he remained a long time, and we never knew what he saw on the top of the hill, for he would not speak of it. " But the next night, just at sunset, my father said he must fetch home the sheep, and he kissed my mother and me, and bade me w atch from the door for him to come home again. And so I did and my father sat behind me on his stool and mut- tered to the fire, aud my mother was so took up with him that she scarcely saw that my brother Frederick was gone. " I watched m; ' brother climb the hill, and I recollect how black his siiape looked against the bright sky. And once he turned to wave his hand to me just before he went down on the other side of the hill. " That was the ver.y last that T ever saw of him, for the sheep came straggling home by and by, and the night shut down over the fen, but my brother Frederick never came back, and you may believe what you will, for that is all any of us can do. " And thus did tiie I ' .lark Death take its toil of us. " This is the tale as 1 heard it from my great-grandmother, and you may see the very hill to this day, and the plcae where the house stood, but you will not find the house, and my great-grandmother hath been dead these fifty years. You may believe the tale or not, as you please, for as I have said, such tales lose nothing in the telling, and my great-grandmother was a very old woman when she died. " i% 5tellh HanscoTn,. g " 2.; , dluutor JJrtsr i tiiry liv Clara P uckland Oiicf uiiori a tiine tliore was a lovely garden. The flowers blossomed there the whole year long, and gave forth such frag- rance that it seemed as though the perfume must go over the ivied wall and make the whole country sweeter. Great, deep- hearted roses lived thei ' e, and tiny for-get-me-nois, and funny- faced pansics. ]Modest heliotrope and mignonette grew along the paths. Dainty, winged sweet peas elirahed over the trellis. In spring brave crocuses and dancing daffodils laughed there together. Down in one corner of the garden was a little fount- ain that tinkled like the faint ringing of tiny silver bells. The birds liked to liuild their nests within the high protecting gai ' - den wall, and added their songs and chatter to the fountain ' s music. But the most wonderful thing about the garden was this, — a real faiiv livi ' d thiTi ' . and she was the deai ' est little fairv that you can imagine. Her name was Tiptoe, and she lived deep down in the heart of a red, red rose. Her face was as Bweet as a flower, and her hair was just like the baby sun- beams that she played with every day. Mrs. Black Spider made her dresses from woven cobwebs. Her wings were so thin and gauzy that you might have looked right through them ;nid thought you were only seeing only the light in the fountain spray. Tiptoe took care of the flowers in the garden, and that must have been why they were so lovely. Mvery lught she washed their dusty faces with cool, spai ' kling liew, anil put on their little night caps. Then she kissed each one good-night, and put it to sleep with a soft lullaby. There were so many flowers that all this took Tiptoe a long time. Then there were the birds, too. Tiptoe always went to evei ' y nest to see if the baby birds were asleep, and to gossip for a moment with their mothers. The Night Breeze sometimes came very late through the garden, but he always found the little fairy still at work. Altogether, the garden couldn ' t have lived without Tiptoe. Everything in the garden was happy and beautiful, ex- cept the Woman who sometimes came to sit on the bench by the fountain. She was always alone, and she never admired the lovely blossoms. She always wore a black dress, and her face was very sad. Sometimes Tiptoe saw her reach out with longing arms and hungry eyes, as though for something that never came. Tiptoe did not know wliat to do, even though her tender heart was full of pity. She often straightened the drooping flowers, and helped the young shoots through the ground ; it was she who comforted the mother birds when the fledglings went away; it was she who mended the butterfly ' s ■wings and the grasshopper ' s coat, but she could not mend a human heart. Neither could the flowers, nor the birds, nor any of the living things in the garden. The little fountain had been doing its best with its song, and could think of nothing else. So the days went by, and the Woman grew more sad and pale. At last Tiptoe called Goldy Wing, the great flaming butterfly who carried her upon his wings. " Dear Goldy Wing, " she asked, " Have you ever been out of this garden? " " Yes, Tiptoe, " he said. " Do you know where there are manv little children? " " Yes! Tiptoe. Why? " " Then take me to them, " she said simply. So for the first time. Tiptoe floated over the green ivied wall and into the great world. Goldy Wing took her on and on ' till they came to a great square building, in whose bare yard many little children were playing, all dressed alike in aoarse blue frocks. At one side of the fenced yard stood a little curly haired child, quite apart from the others, gazing wi.stfully at the billowy clouds sailing slowly across the blue sky. Suddenly a great golden butterfly came so close that it brushed his cheek, and he plainly heard the faint whisp- er, " Come, little Child, come. " Trusting entirely, the curly haired child went out of the gate without looking back and followed the little golden boat sailing so slowly through the clear sea of air. On he went down the dusty street, through the little wood, and across the field, ' till he came to the vine-covered gate that led into the garden. The butterfly went over, so the child opened the gate and went down the path, dimly conscious of the nodding blos- soms on either sitle, but with his eyes still fixed on the butterfly. There at the curve of the walk he saw the Woman. She saw him too, and involuntarily stretched out her empty arms. The Child came straight to her, and she gathered him in her embrace. He cuddled contentedly into her mothering arms, and a great light of joy and tenderness came into the sad Woman ' s face at his sigh of content. Long she sat there holding him to her heart, crooning over him softly in her mother ' s way. while Ti])toe waited in the cherry liloom overhead. At last the Wo- man s]ioke, and Tiptoe thought that her voice was strangely sweet, like the murmur of the Night Wind. " Boy, " she said. " how did you come? " " I followed the butterfly, " the Child answered simply. " I think the butterfly must have been my prayer, " she breathed more to hei ' self than to the Child. And Tiptoe laughed, a little silvery laugh like the tink- ling fountain. " 1 must go to the Primroses. It ' s long past their bed time, Goldy Wing. " and she flew merrily away from him. So the Child stayed with the Woman, and every day they played in the garden. The Woman is no longer sad, but laughs and romps as gaily as the Child. Tip-toe is still the same sweet fairy who dances with the ba y sunbeams among the blossoms, and sometimes even the Child ' s curls; and the garden is the happiest place in the world. (Elir iFinmtcitu |lru aa a iUrauH nf f ' iritual itBrtpUiu As a genus the pen is subdivided into the following groups, or species : 1.— The Writing Pen. 2.— William Pen. 3.— The Pig Pen. " 4.— The State " Pen. " 5. — The Fountain Pen. Of these the last named is by far the most useful for spir- itual and educational develojjment. Many theories have been advanced to account for the origin, evolution, and final cause, or purpose, of the curious object known as the Fountain Pen. The name itself offers little help toward an explanation of the purpose of the de- vice ; the earlier hypothesis that the word Pen indicated that it was once intended for writing pui ' i)oses has long been rejected by the best authorities as ritlieulous. The word Fountain, however, strongly suggests that it originated as some sort of sprinkling apparatus. Some investigators, on the other hand, have traced the beginning of the Fountain Pen to a certain three-tined instrument ollen represented in old engravings depicting the hero of Milton ' s great epic poem. And this suggests the most modern theory, and on the whole, the most probable one : that the deep underlying purpose of the Fountain Pen is Spiritual Discipline. A few hints as to how it may be used for this purpose may possibly not be regarded as unpardonable. Before undertaking the Pen itself, the candidate should make a practical study of the three psychological phases of control, (a) Motor, (b) Self, (c) Temper. lie should also iiiNOstigate the nutritive values of various kinds of ink, and their chemical reaction in contact with the human skin, hair and mouth. If possible he should also read some good work on the Theological Implications of Unorthodox Remarks As a priamry lesson in Spiritual Discipline, let the novice attempt to use the F. P. tor some dehnue purpose, say for .vriting, leaving other possible uses for later development, it is necessary to have at hand a simple e(|uipment of access- ories, consisting of a barrel of tepid water, a microscope, a dozen sheets of assorted sandpaper, a few good sized sponges, a grindstone, a quart can of white lead, a roll of blotting pa- per, a few yards of court plaster, a raw turnip, a piano box tilled with sawdust, a pint bottle of liiiuid glue, a stout mon- key, or if that is not obtainable, a monkey wrench, a carpen- ter ' s vise, a " few rods of baling wire, a garden hose, a Buiisen burner, an air pump, a blacksmith ' s anvil and sledgehammer, a stick of dynamite, a force pump, a small piece of writing paper — the reverse side of a postage stamp will do if the gum has been removed in the usual manner — and especially a large clear copy of the Ten Commandments, or at least the third. The learner should, if possible have access to a good shower bath, and make a frequent test of his temperature by means of a clinical thermometer. A dictionary of Foreigu Words and Phrases will be found convenient to supply the well known de- ficiency of the English language in interjections, and to re- duce the fever; Dante ' s " Inferno " will be found a suggestive source of fervid emotional phases when the teiiipei-ature runs dangerously above the boiling point. With this ei|uipment. which might well be i arried to some unfrequented place at first, and the best Fountain Pen that can be found (or [nirchased if necessary), let the heginnei- set elieerfully but doggedly to work. (Piggedly would perhaps be a more exact term, as the Pig is really more dogged than the dog itself — a quality developed by constant use of the Pen.) First stab the F. P. a few times into the turnip and then rub the point vigorously back and forth upon the writing paper. Examine the surface of the latter at once with the mag- nifying glass for traces of ink. None will be found, except jjossihly on the finger-nails, in which case it may be easily and pleasantly removed by means of the grindstone. Next, apply t,uction to the Pen by means of the mouth. If the ink should start and diseoloi- the tongue and teeth, rub the former with f.andpaper and apply three good coats of pure white lead to the latter, afterwa rd hanging them in a clean place to dry. Or if you use the old-fashioned undetachable-rim variety, take an interesting volume such as Haxtei- ' s " The Saints ' Evei ' last- ing Rest, " and sitting in an open window overlooking the street with the eyes closed, expose the teeth continuously for at least seventeen hours to the direct action of the sun. HoM ever the ink will not start. So connect the Pen with the air pump and oscillate the handle rapidly and vigarously and without stopping while you count 13,023. An attendant should be at hand to administer stimulants to the patient — if he is still so, and he is so if he is still At this point you will suddenly remember that the barrel of the Pen was not filled with ink before beginning the experiment, Therefore, next, unscrew the top. From a human view point this is impossible ; so fasten the Pen into the vise with the baling wire and pour some of the glue over it. Now apply the monkey wrench and some of the Foreign Words and Phrases. A few blows with the sledgehammer will often start something, at least the perspiration. By this time you can easily bite off the top of the Pen, and fill the barrel with ink by means of the force pump. Unless you are occupying rented apartments, hold the Pen over your lap while filling to prevent the overflow from leaving a large, ugly splotch on the rug. Next, take a full bath, and a long rest, leaving the Pen buried in the box of sawdust, and if possible in oblivion. Up to this point in the procedure there is substantial agree- ment among the authorities ; but here they begin to diverge radically, almost radially. One recommends as the next step placing the Pen on the anvil and pounding it vigorously un- til exhausted ; another, that it be run slowly backward and forward through the meat grinder; while still another would fdl it with dynamite, heat it red hot over the Bunsen burner, and then throw it into the garbage can. The particular course to be adopted is largely a question of temperament, and should be plotted out by the novice during his periods of rest. What- ever the method chosen, let it be carried out without mercy and flinching. At the conclusion of the first lesson, the amateur should remove ink stains, apply court plaster; take a cool sponge bath, followed by an alcohol rub and the reading of a few chapters fi ' oiii the Book of Job. Then, after a few weeks ' comi)lete I ' est in the country, and when he feels ready for his second lesson, let him give up the whole business as a bad job, and begin at- tending Sunday school.

MILLKH Seely Shack stood on the steps of the washhouse and look- ed wistfully away to the west where the river, swollen with the spring rains, curved in the sunshine like a dusty yellow ribbon. At his feet stood a basket of freshly washed clothes which should have been hanging in the May sunshine. But how could a ten-year-old pickaninny tamely hang out the white folk ' s washing when a thousand voices of spring were calling him awaj- to the river and dreams? The sunshine down by the river would be warm and gold- en, and the rushing waters would bring down countless treas- ures which a nimble-footed boy might easily grasp from the flood. Besides it was such joy just to lie on the bank and dream, while the water roared dully in his ears and the indo- lent spring sunshine covered him with its warmth. Seely Shack stood on the steps as long as he dared and then leisurely began the labor of clothes-hanging. He paused now and then to look with an apju ' eciative eye upon the green world around him. Was there ever another such glor- ious spring day? The air was sweet with the perfume of growing things. The flowers in the old-fashioned garden had lost their winter stiffness and were growing riotiously in their renewed youth. The whole world was tremulous with the joy of springtime and the heart of Seely Shack throbbed understandingly . He dug his toes into the sand, and fervently wished some kind fairy would turn Sis Lou ' s back for the fraction of a second. But Sis Lous thin black arms were industriously churning the suds. Only now and then did she pause to call a none too gentle incentive to Seely Shack ' s slowly moving legs. He knew from long experience that there was little hope of es- caping her vigilant eye, for Sis Lou, who had been raised in that land of strenuous industry, " way up Xawf, " had no sym- pathy for a poor little darky who was suffering frora that common negro malady, " spring fever. " But for some reason Sis Lou quite suddenly turned her entire attention to the wash-boiler. Seely Shack saw his op- portuiiity ami took it. Like a flash he was off, the white folks ' washing aud all fears as to the consequences of his truancy forgotten in the joy of freedom. He took the alley-way, running swiftly enough until he was well beyond Sis Lou ' s call. He then proceeded in his usual leisurely fashion, but carefully avoided the white folks ' houses where he was accustomed to do odd jobs. At length, the river was reached and Seely Shack, pass- ing through a group of lounging negroes, stretched himself upon an old raft. He gazed placidly into the pulsing, tur- quoise sky and was content. There is no denying it, Seely Shack was a " lazy, trifling uigger. " That was the very epithet which Sis Lou applied to him, and no doubt it was true, for she had been his adopted mother for three months. Seely Shack ' s own mother died in Sis Lfou ' s house the preceding winter and the boy had lived with her, presumably because he belonged no where else. But Sis Lou was not an overgracious hostess and at times Seely Shack entertained wild plans of joining travelling cir- cuses or drifting down the river to New Orleans. For one thing. Sis Loii ' s methods of housekeeping were much too " finicky " tor hei- adojjted son ' s comfort. Everytliing about Sis Lou was painfully neat and orderly and Seely Shack be- came at times naturally indignant at this departure from the customs of his ancestors. A decent rag carpet covered the floor of Sis Lou ' s best room, white curtains fluttered in the windows, and red geraniums bloomed in shining tin cans on the window sill. All of which was very pleasing to Seely Shack ' s sense of beauty until he was called upon to sweep the carpet, wash the curtains or scrub the geranium pots. Rut as he lay in the spring sunshine, Seely Shack was not thinking of his domestic troubles. He was just glad that he was alive. In this mood he might have stayed by the river throughout the golden day, had not a slight disturbance caus- ed him to look toward the group of negroes. Big Zed Blake was coming up the bank with a small squirming yellow bundle in his hands. " Jes ' piekeil him n of fen a bircli log " said Zed, display- ing a tinj- dog of the cur variety, " Any yuh gemmen happen to want " ini? " Seely Shack looked at the pup. Very wet aud bedraggled he was aud pitifully thin and weak; but his tiny tongue was gratefully licking the hand of his rescuer and in his eyes was the bright, mischievous gleam of the ragamuffin. Seely Shack approached and gently stroked the dirty wet head. " Can I have ' im, Zed? " he asked, with round black eyes wide and pleading. " Why, sho yuh kin, " answered Zed. his big voice gruff with kindness, " But yuh gottah be powerful good to him. ' eaze he ' s quality, he is. he di ' opixnl the dirty dog into Seely Shack ' s outstretched arms. " Whaeher gwine to do with iiii. Seely . ' ' llh knows Sis Lou ain ' t gwine hab no dawg rouu the house. ' ' This was from a youth who was somewhat acquainted with Seely Shack ' s do- mestc affairs. " Dat ' s all right, Jeff, yuh ain ' t gwine to git dis hyeli dawg, " answered Seely Shack, brave in the pride of ownership. " Now I reckon dis pup am a pinin ' mo ' fob some milk dan he am fob yo ' lis s ' eiety. " He, therefore, carefully placed the dog in his battered straw hat and departed foi- Sis Lou ' s cabin. He was very happy as he trudged along the dusty road. If there was any- thing Seely Shack had ever longed for it was a dog, and if there was anything that Sis Lou detested, it was a dog. The result had been no dog for Seely Shack. " Jes ' raise yob haid, Booker T, an ' look oveh theah to ' ds them ellums. That ' s yoh home now. " Seely Shack had al- most unconseiously christened his pet. He had always thought that if ever he should have a dog, his name would be Booker T. As he neared the cfibin, Seely Shack experienced an un- usual sinking of the heart. He suddenly remembered that he and Sis Lou were not on the best of terms and a belated twing e of conscience reminded him of the basket of unhung clothes. He, therefore, approadied the cabin in a cautious and roundabout way, to ascertain if conditions were favorable for the pr ' sentation of his new friend. Luck was witli him. The closed doors and windows gave evidence that Sis Lou had not yet returned from her labors. He quickly climbed through the back window of the little lean-to shed, wiiich served as a kitchen, and b " gan his search for food. Luck again! A bowl of rich yellow cream greeted his eye. Without a pang, Seely Shack deposited the disreputable little Booker T. upon Sis Lou ' s spotless white floor and thrust his nose into the cream. When he had demonstrated that his eating apparatus was in proper condition, Seely Shack began a more extensive survey of his good points. They were not many. Even to his master ' s prejudiced eye, Booker T. was, to express it mildly, far from jirepossessing. Nowhere about him was there a trace of beauty or breeding, not even a hint of distant gentility. His small body was covered with coarse, bristly hair and was remarkable only for the fact that it ex- isteil at all, so thin and emaciated it was. One of his fore paws hung limp and useless and no amount of petting would change his dejected droop of his stub tail. Nevertheless, in his eyes there still a twinkle of mischief. It was this gameness which made Seely Shack his firm friend. Seely Siiack ' s ministrations to his comfort were suddenly interrupted liy a succession of rapid footsteps on the plank walk-. There was the unmistakable rustle of stiffly starched skirls. It was Sis lou! Seely Shack ' s heart was in his mouth. Sis Lou opened the door and paused in the act of untying her bonnet strings. Her face became an ebony image of right- eous indignation. ' ' Am dat yuh, Seely Shack? " she asked in a voice, omin- ousl} ' quiet. Seely Shack told the truth for once and said, " Yes ' m. " " An dat, dat varmin, whose am he? " " He am jes ' mine now, he uster be one o ' Cunnel Bodey ' s setter pups. Cunnel done give ' im to me dis mawnin ' , " lied Seely Shack in the extremity of his fear. " Seely Shack, youse de outlyingest niggah in Brush Arbor. Youse ain ' t neber tole de truf, less ' n youse so scar ' d yuh coud ' nt think of a lie in time. Now yuh set dere an ' hyeh me talk. Ise gwine to gib you a piece of my miu ' . " The piece proved to be of a very substantial size, but when it Mas divested of its embellishments, Seely Shack found that the points that immediately concerned liim wei ' e these : r irst, Miat Sis Lou was plumb tired of him and his foolishness ; second, that Booker T. might never set foot in her house again ; and last, that in order to keep his dog, he must take up his abode in the cornerib. It was broad daylight when Seely Shack heard this last edict and, at the moment, life in a corn crili did not compare infavorably in his mind to life with Sis Lou. He had no in- tention of deserting Booker T. and besides, this new mode of life rather appealed to his poetic fancy. Happy, lazy summer days stretched ahead of him, days when he might lie by the river and dream as long as he wished. And the best thing in those care-free days would be his dog. Of course, Booker T. would grow up big and strong and the kind of a dog every boy wants. Seely Shack thought of these things in the space of a minute and then completely astonished Sis Lou by a ccepting her proposition. He took the patchwork quilt she offered him on one arm and with Booker T. tightly clasped in the other, departed for the crib. When evening came. Seely Shack sat in the barn door eating hot corn pone and molasses. He felt (|uite well satis- fied with himself, and whenever Sis Lou glanced his way. he allowed an exi)ression of vast content to cross his face. His was the first victory, for Sis Lou had so far unbent as to sup- ply both the delinquents with a bountiful supper. But Booker T.. for soiiii iii- ' xplicabk- reason, had only taken a lap or two at the warm gravy and then lain down again with his head on his paws. " Mebbe et too much cream a wiiile back. " Seely explain- ed hopefully, pattinjr the li lle head. Slowly but surely the darkness came. The interior of the barn assumed vast and unreal forms in the deepening shadows. Seely Shack closed the door antl tried to become interested in the moon which was just rising over a fringe of dark pines. His confidence and self-satisfaction were going fast. After the warmth and joyousness of the day, the cool stillntss and sadness of the night were hard to bear. Down in the marsh the frogs were tuning for the evening concert. The call of a whi])-poor-will floated across the moonlit fields, faint and niourui ' ul. Seely Shack shivered. It was growing cold there in the barn door. He reached out a hand for his dog and drew him close. Hooker T. wagged his stul) tail feebly and then lay very still in his little master ' s arms. Up at the cabin. Sis Lou was learning again how lonesome a lonely woman may be. It was good to have a companion, even a small, lazy, mischievous person was preferable to no cue. And she had to admit that a certain small boy had risen somewhat in her estimation during the last few hours. A ten-year-old pickaninny, who could sit alone in a dark barn, even for the love of a miserable little cur, had become worthy of her respect. She brought her cliaii ' iiiti) Ihc door and sat rocking in the moonlight, now anil then stealing a surreptitious glance at the corncrib. It was silent and dark. The minutes dragged slowly on and still no movement of surrender from Seely Shack. Sis Lou sat and thought. She remembered the protective love in Seely Shack ' s eyes when he had taken the little dog in his arms and started for the corncrib. Something akin to pity stiri-ed in her heai ' t. She wondered if siie had tlone (luite I ' ight by Seely Shack, if there might not have been a milder way of punishing him. She was not (juite sure that she had been a mother to him. At last Sis Lou gave in to the gnamng hunger in her heart and started down the path to the barn. At the same instant a little figure sprang out of the dark shadow of the barn and came running toward her. She opened her arms and Seely Shack spi ' ang into them. " He ' s daid. Sis Lou, " he sobbed, clinging to her heart- brokenly, " Booker T ' s. daid. " He unclasped his arms to show the little dog lying quite still and lifeless. Something new and deep and tender came into Sis Lou ' s heart. She lifted the child in her strong arms and carried him back to the caom door. Seely Shack tenderly laid the little stiffening form of his pet upon the door step and Sis Lou covered it with her shawl. Then she did what she had never done before. She took Seely Shack in her arms and rocked him back and forth in the old rocker. They were two very commonplace figures as they sat there in the moonlight, two figures such as might have been seen in many cabins in Brush Arbor on that warm spring night. But they were not thinking commoiii)laee thoughts. Thoughts of love and repentance were in the hearts of both. Down in the marsh the frogs were in full chorus now. The fireflies flashed their tiny lanterns back and forth over the cane patch. Again came the call of the whip-poor-will, faint and mournful. Seely Shack nestled closer and whispered humbly from Sis Lou ' s shoulder. " Sis Lou. I ' se rill sorry ' bout dose clo ' es I lef dis mawn- in ' . " Sis Lou ' s ai-ms tighteneij around him and she did not answer for a moineut. " I wuz jes " thiukin ' , Seely Shack. " she said at last, " dat ole CuDnel Bodey might pay fob dat last week ' s washin " I done in one o " dem settiili pups o ' his ' n. " Seely Shack was slipping into blissful unconsciousness, but he heard and murmured gratefully. " I ' se mighty glad ' bout dat, but I ' se double glad dat yo ' ll is goin ' to lub rae now. " After a while he added sleepily, " Good night. Mammy Lou. " Nell Long. Dear " Piker: " You can ' t imagine how busy we are just now, with all our good times, and oh! but you don ' t know what you missed by going away this year. We certainly are having " some few keen " times and I ' ll tell you about some of them just to make you feel sorry you didn ' t stay as we wanted you to. We ' re still di nded into sections, because we are entirely too much for one teacher, and every so often one of these " bimches " has a grand time. There was a Hallowe ' en party, with enough " hair-raising " ' performances to make your " blood run cold. " All the spii-its and " other things " (not nieiitioning any names) fi-om Pluto ' s domain were present, and fi-oiii the screams and screeches of the more timid ones, you would have thought that many were already performing the duties of the " underworld. " About the same time another crowd had a " kid " party; all the babies came, and Miss Snyder was among them. Don ' t you remember that dignified history teacher we heard so much about when we were Juniors 1 She was there as the cun- ningest little girl with pink bows on her hair. Cute ? Well, I guess. And they all played " King of France, " and sucked peppermint sticks. After that, along came Christmas, and, of course, a " bunch " of parties. But I think of one in particular, to which all the guests came as children, receiving their presents from the Christmas tree and Avhiling away their time with pop corn, peanuts, stick candy, and lemonade. The next affair was our big Senior party, and we had a dance in honor of St. Valentine himself. The decorations were great, the music was good, the men better, and Miss Collier — a dream in pink. You don ' t know Miss Collier, do you? She came this year and she is all 0. K. The next thing of note was a St. Patrick " s party. All of Bridget ' s friends came to the back door, and she let them into the kitchen, and they pulled taffy and did the " Irish Reel " and other " shindigs, " and then sat on the floor, with dough- nuts and coffee and toasted marshmallows. Doesn ' t that make you pine for our company ? Tliere ' s another " bunch " ' of our folks who have a failing for picnics, and their favorite rendezvous is Sycamore Grove, where they bake " weenies " and have Cftffee only as J liss Fer- nald can make it. You remember Miss Fernald, of course, the Psychology teacher. Never mind how much she can tell you about neurones, she ' s a jolly good sport, even if she is always late. Speaking of pionies, reminds me of the big picnic our whole class gave the Senior A ' s who graduated in March. We had it at the Grove, and the " eats " were gorgeous. It was reported that Miss Dann had visited the Grove when it was a " beer garden. " " What do you think of that? And she sang us a song that sounded as though she knew a lot about it. Dr. Shepardson sang this: " We used to get tight On a Saturday night A-drinkin ' down gin sling. " Miss Matthewson couldn ' t talk, because she said she didn ' t have the vocabulary to do the affair justice, and Jliss Baugh- man couldn ' t talk, if she did have the words, bt ' cause she was too full — and as usual Miss Fernald came late. We had a grand ood time and caiiie home tired out. And now, we ' re Senior A ' s. and waiting for June, but before we ' re through we are going to have another big " af- fair " , which I ' ll tell you about next time, for there goes the bell and I must not be late to Miss Jacob ' s gym class. Yours in great haste THE SUMMER ' 12 GIRL ALLEGRO f Qjmz A.S.B, OmCKR-S, ' t t:i caw PIER EDITOR 0 ouTlfOoU L_ For some time the students of the Los Angeles Normal school felt the need of an organization that would be of ser- vice to them as an instrument through which they could act as a unit, awakening interest in school activities and arousing the much needed " school spirit. " This need was met finally when on October 9, 1911, Dr. Millspaugh granted the time from regular assembly exercises to be used for a discussion of student organization. Ralph Ileywood was elected presi- dent, pro-teni. and Pi ' arl liaxter, secretary, |)ro-teni. At this meeting the students fleeted to oi-ganize. and passed a resolu- tion asking for more school time to carry on the work. The desired time was given a week later, and at this meet- ing, a committee which had been at work on a con- stitution for the organization, gave its report. Their constitution was accepted as read, and with this action, the organization took its name, ■ " The Associated Students of the Los Angeles State Normal School. " Later the following officers were elected: Ralph Hey- wood, president ; Helen Millspaugh, vice-president ; Pearl Bax- ter, secretary; James Baker, treasurer. Thus began the work of the " Associated Students, " which with the help of the Normal school president and faculty, has been of great help to the school. The work of the organiza- tion, as stated in the constitution, is the control of all stud- ent activities. This seems to be a broad and vague field for work, but the students have taken advantage of the oppor- tunity to " start things " and, as a result, the} ' have some spe -ific achievements. Probably the most important work has been the establish- ing of a Book Exchange, which is a benefit to every student. Bessie (joodhue has been managing tiie Book Exchange and through her faithful work it has grown and become a paying investment. Next in importance, the " Associated Students " have be- gun again the publishing of the " Outlook, " the school paper, which was discontinued during the fall term. Under the able management of Helen ( " antller and Elva (iarfield, the pajier has been placed on a firm basis and now is a practically self- supporting paper, distributed to all members of the " Asso- ciated Student Body. " Although the printed sheet is not as elaborate as last year ' s magazine, it contains good material and is financially safe. At present the student body is coiLsidering the question of self-government, a question that is of vital importance to the school. Several group meetings have taken place and here the students have discussed and voted upon the question. A committtee is perfecting a plan of self-government, which will soon be submitted to the student body as a whole. Looking back over the work done by the " Associated Students, " the school should be proud of the results and each one should be ready to give his support and undivided interest toward it ' s maintenance. BETH GLEZEX THE OUTLOOK The Normal School Outlook is the established publication of our school. This year, the Outlook, in direct opposition to ihe traditions of all the former Outlooks, both Normal school and otherwise, has blossomed forth as a newspaper. It is a small newspaper, to be sure, but still a newspaper, and it has been our endeavor to spread it ' s influence over a far wider territory than is suggested by its modest four pages. The paper is published every two weeks by a staff appointed by the executive committee of the Stud- ent Body. It is made up of the usual departments of a school paper, each tlepartmeut being •out: oiled by an associate editor In addition to these, there is a news department, through which the students are kept in touch with the activities of the school. That is its chief purpose — to support and develop school spirit and student activities. Not only this, but the mes- sage of our progress will be carried by it to other schools and to the world that we are fitting ourselves to meet. The advantages of a newspaper are more than evident in the success which similar publications have attained in con- temporary institutions, and though the nerve-racking ordeal of publication is thus made twice as frequent as formerly, this fact is more than compensated for, by the success which we are gaining. The chief aml)ition of those who have its management in hand is to make the paper in all respects, a fitting representa- tive of our school. HELEN CANDLER i.nn.ipp. The Los Angeles State Normal School Book Exehange was planned and put into operation during the fall term of lull. It was the first aetivity undertaken by tlie Associated Student Body through the Executive Committee. During the winter term, the Exchange did a flourishing business in their temporary (piarters on the l)ridge. Hooks were s-okl an l rented ou a eommission basis for the students. This term, being more widely known, and having the prestige gained by its more pretentious quarters, the Exchange has handled a greater number of books than it did during the preceding term. Tlie renting of books has reached such proportions that a special renting department will be established. The Exchange has tried to be a help to all the Normal school students by giving them an opi)ortunity to purchase their books at a I ' easoiiable cost, and to dis|K)se of them for more than they could get elsewhere. New books have been handled to a small extent, it is hojied that in the near future students will be able to obtain all needed supplies for all de- partments through the Exchange, and this will be possible, if the students of the Normal school will give their personal help and patronage. BESSIE GOODHUE. The term S. E. C. may seem cabalistic to some readers, but when interpreted, reads simply, the Socially Efficient Club. It was organized in June, 1911, and consists of several representatives from each class, wliosc duty it is to guide thi entering student during those first bewildering days of each term. There is always a large vacancy in the club when the Senior Class graduates. This is met by an election about a month before graduation, in order that the new members may become acquaintetl with each other and with their duties. A pic- nic or other foi-m of social gathering is held soon after the election, and these relations are established. Girls are recommended for membership by the girls of the club who, through association with them and inquiries from the Faculty, consider them sociallv efficient. The members must be thoroughly adiuainted with the school and its work, so as to be able to pilot the new students about, aid them in making their programs and, incidentally, assure them of the feeling of good fellowship extended by the school toward each and every new comer. The members for this term are : Lois Caskey, Alta Bailey, Mary Atwood, Helen Candler, Marie Bittleston, Ruby Feazell, Nell Long. Irma Eaton. Genevieve Bell, Francis Neff, Mar- guei ' ite Pendexter, Helen ilillspaugh, Claire Niles, Gladys Pollard, Lucile Middaugh, Elizabeth Connors, Clara ilaltman, Dorothy Mockell, Rachel Head, Marie launocir, Helen Root, Louise Parkins. Jlerle Young, Olive West, Louise Rice, Gwen- dolyn Sargent, Olive Whalian. The club officers are Lois Caskey, president ; Margurite Pendexter, secretary. President Edgar Smith Secreetary Laura Newell Corresponding Secretary Marguerite Leavitt The Education Club was organized in the spring term of 1911, by a small group of students, who wished to gain a deep- er insight into our modern educational problems. We have met on alternate Fridays throughout tiie school year, anil our membcrshii) has constantly increased. An excellent progi ' am is being planned for the summer term, including such authorities as Su{)erintendent Francis and Assistant Suj)erintendent Dozier, of the City School De- partment, and .Judge Will)ui-, of the Juvenile Court. The following topics have been taken up in our work this year: " The Philosophy of Froebel " Dr. Thomas Newliu, President of Whittier College. " The Boy Problem ' " Ernest J. Lickley " In.stitutional Children " X. P. Wilson " Problems of the Slums " Madame VonB Wagner " The (Jreater Citizenship " Airs. Alice Steuben Wells " The Congested Districts " Rev. Dana Bartlett ' ' The Slums ; Their Cause and Remedy " Rev. Alexander Irvine " The Teaching of Sexual Truths to Children " Dr. Grace W. Fernald Among the student activities of the Normal School, the " Education Club " stantls out as an expression of the ideals and work of the students who wish to gain a broader and more intelligent understanding of the problems of education than can be presented to them in the regular curriculum of the school. In order to carry out this ideal, the club has gone to the heart of the subjects, about which it wished to gain greater enlighteninent. and it has secured for speakers those who are best (jualified to speak on the topics under considera- tion. In this way subjects in sociology and economics have re- ceived special attention. Many noted people have appeared before the " Educa1i(ui Club " in the capacity of experts in these lines of work and thought, and the iuflueuce exerted by these people has made itself felt to a marked extent throughout the Normal school.

The membership and social committees work- ed together on Registration days, serving tea and assisting the new students by acting as guides and friends wherever pos- sible. The reception for new students was held the second week in the gymnasium, and was attended by the majority of students and faculty members. Dr. Millspaugh extended a very friendly address of welcome to the students on behalf of the faculty, and a progressive grand mai-eh closed the progi-am. This oi ' ganization exists to foster the development of the all-around girl. The -uri-ieulum studies and the gymnasium provide ample for their own needs, but the Young WDiiicn ' s Christian Association is needed, as Miss Wilbur told us. " ' to keep a balance between the secular and the spiritual " " not to give the girl added i)urdens of more books to study, but to pro- vide for the soul ' s deepest need. Our General Scretary is here on full term, to help us execute our plans. She has been the in- spiration ami guiding spirit of all the yeai- " s undertakings. She is the needed friend of many a lonely entering Junior and later of all classes of girls. In the words of our Lord Jesus, " I am come that they might have lif " . and that they might have it m; re abuiiiiani I v. " ' MVKTLK WKIiSTHR There are girls wlii) ai ' e tail- and lovely to see, There are girls who are wise in pedagogee; There are girls who with grace can bow and serve tea, And girls who believe with great modesty. But no matter how wise or fail- they may be. They none can compare with the girls of the Glee. Anyone passing by the big red school house on the hill at certain times, can hear some very ])eeuliar noises ; sounds like trumpets, eats, untuned organs, and sometimes notes of sweet music. No one has ever become alarmed or interested enough to climb up tile stall ' s to room S in order to investigate, but if he had, his labors would not have been unrewarded.

But the Glee club girls say that the pleasure they have had in singing, has been worth the work. They have sung at the Maey street Night school. the Cosmo club, the School Masters ' HaiKpiet, and many times at commencements and asseiiililies, besides giving that beauti- ful little operetta, ' " The Egyptian Princess, " and all the girls join in saying " it was fun, " and if it was fun for the (ilee girls, those who have listened can enthusiastically say, " Their pleasure has been our treat.

In the Spring of 11:)1U. some ambitious students, finding our brief course in geography lacking in thorough and detailed study, concluded to organize a club for the pur- pose of supplementing their knowledge of this subject. A.s a result, we of 1912 have a flourishing Geography club with an enrollment of seventy- two members. Through the efforts of Mr. Chamberlain, head of the de- partment, and iliss Sweet, president of the club, many in- teresting speakers have been brought before the organization. Two finely illustrated lectiires, " The Valle.y of the Nile, " and ■ ' The High Sierras, " ' have been presented in thoroughly en- enjoyable style. Miss Bushnell one of our own Normal students, in her talk on Asiatic Turkey, gave the club a delightful journey of the im- agination to that far land. Ital.y, Egypt, and Tibet have been visited under the guidance of most able speakers. Further interest has been added to these lectures by the display of souvernirs and pictures which depict the life and customs of these distant countries. Geography from a scientific stand- point has been considered in interesting lectures by members of our own faculty who are especially prepared to speak on their siibjects. To the students of the Normal Sdiool who will be with us next year, the Geography club extends a cordial invitation for membership. Interest and enthusiasm are the only require- ments for an enjoyable terra in this wide-awake club. ' I 1 : :, - - President ■ Lucile Brooks Secretary Isabel Hurkr- Dui ' iiig tile spriiijr of 1!)11 a group of ambitious liistory students agreed that this State Normal School needed a His- tory club. Sueh a club was forthwith organized for the pur- pose of group study of sueh topics as the majority should desire. The first meetings were devoted to the study and dis- cussion of " Kvei-y (lay Ktiiii-s, ' " by EUa Lyman Cabot. Later, the Mission I ' criod of ( ' alifoi ' nia history liecaiui ' tiie scene of action and muiji iiitei-est was aroused in the unicjue history of our state. Lest too much and too serious delving among archieves of the ancients .should lead to ossification, the burden ( ?) of such labor was lightened by excursions into the proverbial realm of " spreads. " Those who attended the initiation fes- tivities at Eastlake Park, will not soon forget the thrilling rendition of the " ' Laugliing Chorus " nor the e(nnilly eloquent translations of Virgil ' s Atiieid. The cake-walk of tiie seci ' etaiw- elect, surpassed all previous performances. The reception to the Senior A members in December, disclosed a wonderful amount of artistic talent, hitherto unknown, especially the sketch " Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep. " This term ' s jollification took the form of a picnic at Syca- more Grove, where the " stunts and eats " far excelled any l)efore given by the club. lONE LOWMAN In the Normal Catalogue, a modest little paragraph an- nounces that tennis clubs and other organizations give students an opportunity for exercise and social life. Such a calm state- ment certainly does not do justice to the " Racquet Club. " There are forty members, and we are sure that every one of them would like to stand forth from this page and testify with raised right hand that to belong to the " Racquet Club means having the best times, the best spreads, and making the best friends that anyone could hope to have or to make. The priv- ilige alone of trying to return Miss Mathewson ' s low serve, or trying to make a ball go over Mr. Waddle ' s racquet at net, is worth the initiation fee. The club has had two tournament parties this year. The first was a progressive tennis party. The courts were num bered and all the rules of a progressive card party were fol- lowed. Miss Agnes Ganahl came out the victor. At noon, the weary players went to the lunch room and found it decorated with pennants and flowers, as for a regular banquet . With Miss Jacobs as head of the table, and Miss Fernald, Miss Math- ewson, and Miss Collier to respond to toasts, the conversation could not well lag. Dancing in the gymnasium and more tennis finished the day. In the second tournament, each player had a partner, and they together played all the other partners. Miss Bont kept this complicated system oiled and Miss Mathewson and Miss McMillan won for the day. Lunch was served in the arbor near the Kindergarten, and winners and losers were not ahead of each other in the good fun during lunch. Indeed, winning and losing do not count in the " Racquet Club. It is all for the joy of playing, and all share in the joy of the winners. The club literally lives that game motto: " Sport for sport ' s sake. " OFFICERS President, Augusta Bont. Secretary, Avis Olmstead. Treasurer, Gertrude Lofthouse. The girls interested in basket ball started out this year with a determination to have a strong teani, and praetieed hard during the first term. However, just as a team was being or- ganized, practice was broken into by tiie cadet teaching of the Seniors. Therefoi-e, although a few games were played be- tween classes, thei-e has been no real basket ball season, and, in fact, no representative team, for the Seniors are the only ones who have actually organized a team. The girls are hop- ing, however, to have a series of inter-elass games before the end of June. Kasket ball does not mean so mueli in the Normal school as it should. It is a fine, strenuous game and offers an opportun- ity for letting out some of our pent-up enthusiasm Also, brain workers need exei ' cise and a great many girls do nothing more vigorous day after day. than to cliiiili Normal hill. With an en- thusiastic s(|uad out for practice, good games could be arranged and not only would the players be benefitted, but there would be an opportunity for an awakening of our slumbering athletic spirit.

He could fight in the ring, Or like a bird could sing, And has medals of tin and of gold. A man he is of wondi ' ous worth, With ideas not a few. What if his genius he had turned, To chicks am ' sows, to bugs and cows. And everything that grew. There is a fine woman in K, Who works with her grammar all day, What if by some chance On the stage she sliould prance. Like the villan who acts in a play? There was once a lady so strong She could lift heavy weights all day long. Or could hang by her knees. On a Kwingin " trapeze. With her voice liftea high in a song.

WHY THE BANK FAILED With a gasp she leaned heavily against the wall. The white card fluttered to the floor. Slowly she made her way through the surging mob in the hall until she reached the door to her room. Once within, the door closed between her and the eyes of the masses, new strength came to her. Quickly she searched through her sweater pockets until she found her handkerchief, in the corner of which was tied a tiny key. In two bounds she was across the room and in front of a smull door iu the wall. In a flash she had the key in the lock and the door open. After a hasty search, she discerned the fatal package under her School Law. She thrust it under arm, closed and locked the door, and returned the key to its correct habitant. She then made fro mthe room towards the South Ilall on tiptoe. Outside the door of the Room in the South Hall she stop- ped, her heart beating wildly, and she stealthily glanced within. No one was in sight ! She ((uietly crept iu, noislessly laid the package on the table and turned to retrace her steps. Hist! She was pursued! She became paralyzed with fear. Would she never reach the door? The thundering voice of Miss Van Dusen shouted " Twenty-three cents over due!!! " (Btma frnm tbr (Sijm The Laughing Chorus Oh, Such a commotion behind the partition, When Keppy called " All fall in! " Such scrambling and slanging unfit for rendition, Such scampering out and in. And " Kidd, are you ready? " the tall one asked; " She ' s eaclled ' Fall in ' you know. " " Almost, my dear, " the short one replied. She ' ll say ' fall out! ' now if I go. " Then, " Ha! Ha! Ha! " a chorus came Of laughter from others as slow. From dozens of girls from behind that partition. Yes — dozens — not ready to go. SOMEWHAT BEHIND DANNY DEEVER " What makes these girls run like mad?

Don ' t wait until the children pass out before entering the gym. They like to he in a crush. Don ' t talk ijuietly while in the dressing i-ooms.

ONE ON THE " OUTLOOK " Although the " " Normal Outlook " hti.s our sincere w-ishes for its continuous success, it is with no little satisfaction that we take this opportunity to even our score with that publica- tion for having cut in ahead of us and gobbled up soine of the literary material that we had intended to use ourselves. When we got a " tip " from the unclaimed baggage department that a fat wad of m. s. had been turned in, we lost no time in fol- lowing it up. Our joy may be imagined, when we found upon claiming it, that it was a bundle of notes lost by the " Outlook " editors, and one for which they have been frantically adver- tising in their " Lost and not Found " column, under the cap- tion, " Ijargi " Reward Offered. " When we obtained possession of the notes through our in- fluentiji! i-onneetions with the unclaimed baggage department, which, by the way. is presided over by one of the most obliging of ladies, we found them fastened together by means of a large p.ece of sealing wax, scented with spearmint, and a thin wire paper fastener — the kind that is shaped like a staple with crinkly legs; whence we at once concluded that the material had been gathered anil jotted down by a certain well known and pop iiar young lady of the " Outlook " staff. We examined the ms. with high anticipations at first, but as we proceeded, with a glowing sense of disappointment. ]Many of the items were illegible, having been written in the normal school report- er ' s hand; and most of them had been freely scored by the ed- itorial blue pencil. Several were marked " Not fit for publi- cation. " One of the articles in a delicate feminine hand, head- ed, " How (, ' an We Induce More Hoys to Attend Normal? " was marked " Too sentimental and visionary. " Another, a really meritorious write-uj) of the Exi)onent and its efficient staff, was endorsed, " Perfectly true, but might set them up too much; tone it down. " A paper entitled " Bright sayings of the Faculty, " was scored " not original, " and was inscribed " Too dull; ginger it up. " We have gone patiently through the bundle and culled out a few of the better items, which we print below with our apologies. The others we have returned to the U. B. Dept., together with a green hair-ribbon, a recipe for making almond cream from sawdust and crude petroleum, and a clipping entitled " Day Dreahs of a Somewhat Lonely Single Lady. " We shall not have it on our conscience that we claimed a reward for the return of this material; we simply charge our time to " profit and loss " .
