As one looks back over the past two years, the question arises. " What has Summer ' 13 done for the Xormal School? " Under the guidance of this class, the Associated Students and the Student Government have become more firmly established ; various smaller organizations and clubs have come into existence. The class has spent much time and earnest efiforts to further school spirit and to make the students feel more united as a school, and not as an aggregation of groups. As this class leaves the school it sincerely hopes that others will try to live up to the standard it set : to be a better influence in the community because of two years most profitably spent at the Xormal School ; to leave behind them that spirit of aft ' ection and true-heartedness which will endear their Alma ] later to Facult - and Students. The Exponent CHE L. A. S. X. S. Catalogue gives the names of the two school pub- lications as The Outlook, the official organ of the Student Body, and The Exponent, the official organ of the Senior Class. As must be ex- pected in such an edition as this, the duty and privilege of issuing such a book should belong to the Senior A ' s. This is only fair. Let us keep in mind, however, that the literary work was chosen because of its merits and appropriateness; that the art work is the result of a com- petition in which all who wished submitted work. The Stafif has endeavored to make the School feel that this is the students " book. Every class and organization of the School is represented, and it is our earnest desire that each member of the faculty and eacli student will say. " This is the Annual of my School. " 14 Dedication IX dedicating- our Annual, we tried to select a dedication that would come close to the hearts of all those who belons to the Xornial School. As is most natural in an institution such as ours, there are a i reat many to whom we could inscribe this book, but we felt that each one should know those who receive our tribute, so we chose those who are nearest and dearest, those ft)r whose sake we have spent two years of work and pleasure with our Alma Mater, those who guide and inspire us — The Children. To them we lovingly dedicate our Annual. Appreciation ::; ' HE Editor wishes to express her thanks not only to the Staflf for the f valuable tnne and effort they so cheerfully gave that this Exponent might be a success, but to the School at large,. — to the faculty for their hearty co-operation, and to the students for their welcome contributions. This undertaking has been a true pleasure ; the work has been highlv instruc- tive, and the Staff " feel that they have gained by it. Will those who have so heartily co-operated with the Editor accept her sincere gratitude for their assistance in making the Exponent the best ever issued bv the Los Angeles Normal School. 15 BiCVLTX PACULTY J 55 r: niLLSPAUGnA.n.,nj).

M .• J ?4 r An Appreciation THERE are men who magnify their positions in life so that those who know them lose all sight of so-called distinctions in the dignity and value of dififerent occupations. Such a man was James C. Major, our school janitor for ten years. To members of the faculty, whose connection with the school has allowed a longer acquaintance with Mr. Major ' s unfailing cour- tesy, faithfulness, and willingness to serve, his death came with shock and sorrow. A true gentleman, a real friend is mourned. Students, whose knowledge of his character must have per- force been less extensive, are nevertheless keenly conscious of the splendid integrity and faithful service, which were so constantly in evidence in the daily discharge of his many and exacting duties. If success in life be related to service, surely the life of ] Ir. Major has been most successful. His example of devotion to rou- tine tasks is one not lightly to be passed by unnoted. Its lesson is to be taken to heart and acted upon l)y all of us, who have known him. To his family in their loss and sorrow, the sympathy of stu- dents and teachers is most cordially extended, with the hope that the memory of his life and the esteem in which he was held by ali who knew him, mav serve to comfort in this hour of bereave- ment.

Andrews. 26 -7 J 7 - FR£o ' AlirSQff„JiOWE ALvnni Alumni It was a beautiful da}- in May, 1884. Los Angeles had donned her most becomino- gown in honor of the first graduating class of the Los Angeles State Normal Schot)l. There were twenty-two young women in dainty commence- ment dresses, with hearts fluttering with excitement as they waited to receive the diplomas which would make them the first Alumnae of our Normal School. That was just twenty-nine years ago, and from the twenty-two of the first graduating class the number has steadily grown until today four hundred twenty-five young men and women are candidates for graduation in the June class of 1913. During these twenty-nine years our Normal School has made steady progress. There is no surer proof of this fact than to compare the cata- logue, in June, 1883. at the close of the first year of its work, with the one issued in June, 1912. at the close of its twenty-ninth year. In 1883, the School offered only one course, similar to the General Professional course of the present time. In the catalogue of 1912 there are seven distinct courses, the General Professional, the Academic-Professional, The Kindergarten Training, the Manual Arts, the Special Art. the Special Music, and, last and new ' est, the course in Home Economics. Each of these courses has been introduced in response to a demand from the public ; and their number and variety show the interest that the wurld at large is taking in children, and in properly equipping instructors to give to these little ones. In the catalogue of 1883. there appear eight names on the page headed " F " aculty. ' " In the catalogue of 1912, four pages of the same size are devoted to listing the names of the fifty-seven members of the present faculty. In the list of subjects presented for study, some interesting facts ap- pear. The work was then classed under five headings : Language, lathe- matics. Science. Miscellaneous and Professional. Three semesters w ere de- voted to the study of Orthography and English Grammar. The fourth term of Language work was devoted to ' ord Analysis and Composition, the fifth to Rhetoric, and the sixth to Criticism of English Literature. Mathematics, including Arithmetic, mental and written, Bookkeeping. Algebra. Higher Algebra and Geometry appear in some form in every term ' s work. In Science, the students worked over Geography, both general and physical. Physiology. Natural Philosophy. Zoology, Botany. Chemistry, Astronomy and Geology. Under the heading " Miscellaneous. " we find Penmanship, Drawing, Reading, Vocal Music. General Review of Elementary studies. Political Economy. United States Historv, School Law and Constitution. Professional training seems to have had less attention than any other branch of the work. The catalogue of 1912 provides for three terms of Observation, one term of " Problems in Teaching. " and twenty hours of practice teaching: while the first catalogue provides for one term in Observation, one in Methods in Teaching, and one in actual practice teach- ing. The courses in Physical Training, Psychology, Pedagogy and Child Study, had no place in the work of the School when it w-as first organized. IVom the report of the vice-principal, found in the appendix of the 30 first catalogue, we find that when this School was first opened, in August, 1882, there were eighty-eight applicants for admission, fifty-five of whom were admitted without conditions, and six with conditions. At the close of the first term, there were eighty-four pupils enrolled in the Normal School proper, and one hundred fifty in the Training School. . t llu close of the year 1912, there were 1088 students in the Xormal Sclmol. From three of our more recent graduates we have received letters, each bringing a message to the present students of their Alma Mater. The first ot these comes from Nell Long of 1912, editor-in-chief of last year ' s " Ex- ponent. " Dear Exponent: Your request for a letter to the Exponent has made me very hap])y. It is never far to the land of pleasant memories and the name " Exponent " has a magic charm which always carries my thoughts l:)ack to the hap])y days of work and pleasure at the Normal School. We of 1912 have so recently left our Alma Mater that we still think of her as our school; we are still a part, in spirit, of her hurrying throngs; her problems are our problems and her interests ours. Amid all the trials and triumphs of the first year, we have kept eyes, ears, and hearts open for good tidings of the Normal School, and we have rejoiced with her at every added success. Not long ago I climbed the Normal Hill for the first time in many months. It was at the closing hour, and the girls thronged the halls. Most of their faces were strange to me, and yet I felt the grateful ease and joy of l:)eing among old friends. Last summer we thought there could never again be so firm a band of friends as the class of Summer, ' 12. It was wonderful to feel that the new girls cherished that same spirit of enthusiastic good-will and loving com- radeship. This friendliness wdiich the Normal School extends to all wdio enter her doors is one of her many unseen gifts which the Alumni will ever hold infinitelv precious. The Alumni, as I have found them, are intensely loyal to the best in- terests of the Normal School. Each clas has its own memories, very near and dear to each and every heart. Stunts, spreads, " weeny bakes. " and long- tramps in the green hills at springtime were never so joyous as when the jolly Summer, ' 12 ' s led the party. Can we ever forget the marvelous ex- ploits of our class on the glorious circus day? Has there yet been a Senior " stunt " program wdiich has e([ua!led Summer ' 12 ' s clever travesty of the honored faculty From a host of loving memories in our hearts, we send to the School a message of appreciation, and to you who are leaving, our earnest wishes for your highest success. Sincerely, NELL LONG. Dear Old Normalites : hat a short time since 1 graduated ! Yet how many things have hap- pened ! Many of you are hoping to take the city examination for teachers, so, perhaps, my experience will interest you. 31 My first bit of advice is. " Do not study books in preparation. " The theme topics, the only written work in the examination, cover matters of life, not questions from books. I ' ll admit that I crammed a good deal, even making- a systematic outline of McMurray ' s " How to Study; " but when the time came to write, my pen literally took the bit between its teeth and re- fused to transcribe anything but what I had been seeing and doing. I am glad that of my two weeks ' preparation only two days were spent in book study. The rest of the time I passed studying human nature as revealed in the schools of this grand city of ours. One of the best schools to visit is Utah Street School. There we saw a model cottage, where the children of the slums are taught the ideals of housekeeping. In the sewing-room the girls make their own clothes. There is a dav nursery, where the small charges of the " little mothers " are cared for during school hours. This is not all that is to be seen in this school or in many others : but if you get interested in one. you will not stop until you have seen all you can. I could tell vou of the rooms for the deaf at Grand Avenue and Sixteenth Street Schools, of the speical schools for truants and incorrigibles. of the school clinic and other things ; but I will let you discover them for yourselves. Sincerelv. ELIXOR RICHARDS. Dear Exponent: Your kindlv request for a letter has been received, and it gives us, the Spring Class of 1913. great pleasure to be represented within your pages. Time is only relative, and the short time that has elapsed since our departure from the Normal School has been for us somewhat uneventful. From among our ranks no rumors arise of continental tours, matrimonial ventures, or the acceptance of principalships, so my letter can recount none of these. However, since such responsibilities have not suddenly rolled them- selves upon us, ample time has been given us to reflect, to take, as it were. a backward look over our Normal training, to weigh the good we have received from it. Sweet is the thought of those two years to everyone of us! I believe that they were a character making epoch in our lives. Every recitation had its charm, and every instructor bore the stamp of genuineness — the mark of a truly refined character. Is there not an ever-present, never-end- ing influence there, an influence that unconsciously creeps into our very lives and tends to harmonize all our actions? Because of such teachers. we have been made better men and women; our ideals have been lifted higher. We shall carry this spirit into our own school rooms, striving al- ways to impress the ideals of greatest worth upon the hero-worshiping minds of our pupils. From our study of the child, a chord of sympathy has been struck within us. and we understand better the problems of the wayward lad on the street corner in his tattered coat. Ve have learned to love nature too: the song of the birds attracts us now; the grass and the flowers and the lowliest creatures have a deeper meaning for us. A taste for good literature has been established. Our sense of artistic beauty has been awakened ; we 32 rebel ag;ainst the coarse and cheap music of the streets ; it strikes a discorchmt note within us. So on through the entire curriculum ; each subject has served its purpose well. We should be most ungrateful if we did not acknowledge the benefit of such training. It has been and will always be a strong influence in giv- ing shape to our lives; and as the years close in about us, may they ever find us nobler and more worthy, so that at last, in " Life ' s November Chill " we mav be able to sa} ' in the words of our beloved lirowning, that they have led us " To an age so blest, that by its side Youth seemed the w aste instead. " Sincerely, MARGARETTE THOMPSON. What has become of the girls wdio have gone out from the School is always of interest to us, particularly if they graduated while we ourselves were students. We list below a few from each of the last three graduating classes. June Class, 1912. Nanon Borge is teaching at Elizabeth Lake.

Following several weeks ' publication of a notice of sale, at ten o ' clock of that day, there assembled in front of the building and on the steps a considerable company of people, attracted mainly by curiosity, to witness the transfer of buildings and grounds from the ownership of the State to that of some unknow n purchaser. Precisely as the hour struck, Hon. Richard ] Ielrose, President of the Board of Trustees, standing upon the porch, called upon the Secretary of the Board to read the notice of sale ; and immediately after the reading invited bids of purchase. The Normal Site Company, representing the City of Los Angeles, offered six hundred thousand dollars as its bid and presented a certified check as a guarantee of good faith. The representative of another company offered six hundred ten thousand dollars and presented a certi- fied check which, however, did not technically conform to the require- ments of the Board and was not accepted. After three times asking if there were other bidders. President Melrose declared the property sold to the Normal Site Company. Thus, after more than thirty years of peaceful possession of her own home, the Alma Mater has become merely a tenant, and, with her numer- ous family, is occupying rented quarters. Fortunately, she will be allowed to remain in the old home — the only one she has ever known — until her new and more extensive abode is ready for her use. What changes, without and within the building, those thirty years have registered ! When " the magnificent structure " , " ' one of the finest edifices in the State " , as it was once described, was opened for the recep- tion of students. Los Angeles was a thriving city of some twelve thousand inhabitants. " Main Street was its chief commercial thoroughfare. " The business cen ter was the Plaza. The public schools then enrolled some sixteen hundred pupils. The new Normal School was far out in the sub- urbs. As a description of it published at that time declares : " It is situ- ated three-quarters of a mile from the business section on an eminence about two hundred feet above the level of the citv. " " From the grounds 35 the isitor has a bird ' s-eye view o{ the entire city; and for miles around beautiful orange groves loom up in all their semi-tropic grandeur. " At that time, what is now our l)eautiful Central Park was an orange grove. It was not until some years later that the Normal S c h o o 1 grounds were graded and the orange trees removed. On the opening day eighty candi- dates applied for admission, and of these sixty were received. The fac- ulty for the first year was com- posed of an acting principal and two assistants, all of whom are still 1 i V i n g. Miss Dunn, whom ev- eryone knows as Secretary of the Faculty, was ap- pointed teacher of history in 1884. T h e original building extended as far back only as the present line of the main cross corridor. It was not until 1893 that the central ])art of the building, in which are no w many class rooms, library, assembly room, etc., was constructed. A t ' a r i () u s later times the gymna- sium and other additions to the buildings were made. From the opening day until the j)resent, every succeeding year has 36 broug ' ht a steadily increasing- number of students to the school, and the annual ijrowth for each of the later years has been larger than the entire enrollment of some of our normal schools. The aggregate en- rollment of different students for the thirty-one years of its career has been 6997. The attendance has nearly doubled in four years ; it has nearlv trebled in seven years. The number of graduates has shown a similar rapid increase until now, and although there are many larger normal schools in the United States, the number of diplomas each year granted by the Los Angeles Xormal School is larger than that of any other State Normal School in the country. The faculty, whicli in the beginning numbered 3. has increased to 55. Counting all whu have taught in all departments since 1882, the num- ber of different individuals serving as instructors has been 162. Since the hrst year, when the management of the school w as in charge of an acting principal, three different men have occupied the office of Presi- dent. Fifty-nine men and one woman have served as members of the Board of Trustees, of wdiom ten have been successive governors of the State. The Normal School has never been luxuriously housed or elaborately equipped. If delicacy does not permit its career to be called one of " plain living and high thinking " , it puts no bar on the first half of the designation. There may have been a time in its history when congestion and overcrowd- ing were not experienced ; but if so, no one now connected with the school remembers it. Furnishings, equipment, and apparatus have always been selected with a view rather to utility than to ornamentation, and it has never ceased to be necessary to practice rigid economy of expenditure in order to avoid financial deficit. But trustees, teachers, and students have never failed to make the most of their opportunities ; with the result that in proportion to the cost to the State, the work accomplished by the school is notable in amount and we believe not inferior in quality. The Los Angeles Xormal School is not known as a place of ease and frivolity. " Soft courses " have not had a place in its curriculum of studies. Good standing has always been earned, and indolence and pretense have seldom been prevalent: yet there are few institutions where a smaller measure of compulsion has obtained. Earnestness and devotion to work, while uniformly evident, have always developed naturally and spontaneously. Though scholarship has stead- fastly been cultivated, it has been the scholarship whose purpose and goal are serviceableness and efficiency. Since that fateful twenty-ninth of Au- gust, thirty-one years ago, wdien for the first time the institution ' s doors were thrown open to receive those w ho proposed to equip themselves for a high form of public service, a steadily lengthening column of students of high purpose has entered them to better learn the science of education and acquire the art of teaching ; and a no less steadily enlarging phalanx of teachers has gone out from them to strengthen the educational forces of the State and to carry to waiting communities the freshness and enthu- siasm and ideals of ardent youth. This is the brief story of the past of the Xormal School, an epitome of its life history in the old home. What has the future in store for the Alma Mater, " genial mother " of teachers? Access to the book of the fates is 37 172165 denied us. but the outli ok so far as it extends is pleasinj . Plans for a magnificent group of new buildings are complete and the contract for their construction will soon l)e awarded. With sufficient margin for delays, it is expected that the buildings will be ready for oc- cupancy September first. 1914. An Administratinn lUiilding. with offices. classrooms, an assembly hall to seat seventeen hundred people ; a Library, with capacity for sixty thousand volumes and four hundred readers ; a Home Economics and Manual Arts Building, with laboratories, class rooms, and a model li ing apartment : a Science Hall, with laboratories — chemical, physi- cal, physiological, horticultural — and a room for an out-of-door vivarium for nature study ; the Fine Arts Building with appropriate studios and halls for music and art; a fine Gymnasium with its characteristic accessories; a magnificent Training School, containing besides the usual class and practice-teaching rooms, a gymnasium, cooking laboratory, sewing room, music hall, manual training room, open-air class rooms, etc. : a Manual Arts Building, with carpenter shop, machine shop, foundry, etc. ; a Kindergar- ten Training School Building, planned to meet the special requirements of such a school ; a Cafeteria Building, with capacity for four hundred at tables and with abundant provision for the preparation and serving of food ; and last, but not least, an athletic field big enough for baseball, football, or any other modern athletic games. Is that not enough to make all of us rub our eyes and pinch ourselves to be sure we are not dreaming? But this is only a catalog of titles — there is neither time nor space now for a full table of contents. It must be suf- ficient here to say that for more than a year two very able and experienced architects and for months a small army of assistants have been laboring steadily and patiently to put into workable shape and give unity of design to the ideas and wishes of all departments of the school. The result, we confidentlv believe, will be in a high degree satisfactorv from the standpoint both of utility and of artistic taste. Such improved facilities will invest the school with new power. The transfer to its new home will mean a renais- sance of strength, of ambition, of influence, of usefulness. In the new home there will be larger opportunities and better facilities. There is promise that aims that have long been cherished may soon be realized. Plans which have been initiated but only imperfectly carried out may be completed. Op- portunity will be afforded for the study of various changes in the educa- tional program which have not yet assumed definite shape but which under the more favorable conditions may grow into movements of importance. There will be encouragement and facilities both for the development of methods and for the testing of those developed elsewhere. Sooner or later will come legal authority to enlarge the scope of our work and to establish new and higher courses of study. At no distant day. by whatever name it may be known, the school will assume the functions of a college of teach- ing and invite to the enjoyment of its opportunities many aspiring stu- dents of education who, if they were now ready to do so, would be com- pelled to journey far to find satisfaction of their educational needs. Like other great social ideals, the educational ideal can never become static ; it is a never-ending evolution. As long as society continues to de- velop, educational aims and processes will change. Xo such opportunity 38 opened up before the school in 1882 as that which it now faces. Xot onh ' is it larger today, better equipped, surrounded by more friends, and blessed with a host of loyal sons and daughters; but in common with X(jrmal Schools elsewhere, its work and influence are rewarded l)y a degree of ])opu- lar and professional appro al entirely unknown when the school was estab- lished. Under favorable auspices and with high hopes, the Alma Mater will enter upon her new career in her new abode. Semper ralent, rrcscftt, fjorcat. TESSIE I- " . AlILESPAUGIT. Hcvn Hor m c3 1 .

But we ' ll stay on the hills of thought, my child. Close to God, as we pass through the throng; And with vision clear and undefiled ' e ' ll onward with unvoiced song! ADA TAXE HLLER. 41 UfiBABY Our Lil)rary ! Instantly before the mind of each Normal girl rises the picture of our reference room with the light entering though win- dows on three sides. Around the long mission tables are seated the stu- dents, assiduously preparing a lesson on Socrates, a term paper for Dr. " addle. or a plan for a lesson in Habit Formation. It is all very pleasant, very restful, and most conducive to hard study. It is, indeed, seldom that we have to turn to the public library to supply the material for our reference work, for we have twenty-five thousand carefully selected volumes, which numl)er is steadily increasing at the rate of about two thousand new volumes per year. When the library first opened. Miss Dunn was librarian, and the pres- ent reception room was the library. The number of books was small, so the students did not have the advantages that we of the present time en- joy. Like everything else connected with Los Angeles Normal, the library grew until it had to find larger quarters. It was then located in room " E. " It still kept growing larger and larger until all the faculty agreed that there would have to be another moving day, and that the library would have to find a new home. The new home was located where it is at ])resent and consisted of only three rooms, the reference room, the children ' s room, and the office. But the library didn ' t stop growing even then and soon threatened to over- flow into the halls unless something was done, so the room for circulat- ing books was provided. The next problem was to make the reference room as attractive as possible and various graduating classes have as- sisted the school in this efifort. The big clock whose pendulum swings so gravely and precisely day after day was the gift of the ' 03 class ; the class of ' 11 donated one of Wendt ' s pictures; the " Carot " is the gift of ' 10, and the Abbey picture that of 1912. ] Iany are the subjects represented by the books in both the circu- lating and the reference rooms. These books vary from novels to while away the leisure hours, to heavier works on psychology, education, sci- ence, travel, history, and literature. There are also encyclopedias, dic- tionaries, atlases, and about one thousand volumes of the leading literarv and educational periodicals, to which the students ha e access. i Acrything possil)le is done to facilitate the use of tlie lilirarv. The 42 books are classified according to the Dewey decimal system and a card catalogue, containing the title and subject of every book and the name of its author, makes the finding of desired material an easy and rapid task. Under the capable direction of Miss Elizabeth H. Fargo, the librarian, and her assistant, ]Miss Marjorie H. Van Deusen, a new course has been ofi: ' ered to Normal students as an elective — a course in Library Methods. This course is divided into two parts. Under part one comes the use of the library, the study of the structure and the care of books, then classi- fication and arrangement, the use of the card catalog, of the reference books, periodicals, and periodical indexes. The second part is a course in library management and includes book selection and buying, prepara- tion of books for the shelves, the study of library records and accession book, the shelf list, children ' s reading and books, and the charging sys- tem. Three periods or more a week for one term are assigned each pupil. A lecture is delivered during one of these periods weekly, and the other periods are devoted to supervised practice-work in the library, where the principles learned from the lecture are put into actual use. That the Xomal students reahze fully the great value of such a course has been adequately proved by the large number who have elected it. The present class numbers forty, and man}- were refused admission, because iinder existing conditions, it was necessary to limit th e enrollment. This course is designed to meet a long recognized need. When Normal stu- dents go out to teach, they are frequently asked to select, or help to select, a school library and then they feel keenly their own incompetency and deplore their ignorance along such lines. Much better and more extensive quarters will be apportioned the library when the new N ormal School buildings are erected. Under such favorable conditions, we believe that it will develop along other lines as well, until it equals any Normal School library in the I ' nited States. Once a week, usuallv un Monday, instead of having chorus work, we are favored with a lecture, a musical recital, or some other form of enter- tainment. We have had the good fortune to have with us some of the mosi noted educators, lecturers, and musicians of the United States. The follow ing are the most important features of the past year : September 16. Dr. J. F. Millspaugh. our President, delivered the ad- dress of welcome to the new students. September 30. Rev. E.

Hochbaum, The Studv of Agriculture. 44 After we have had the Devotional Exercises, the Assembly period each day is given over to chorus work. Mrs. Goodwin, head of the Special Music Department, is our director, and under her wonderful leadership, the enthusiastic body of seven hundred young- people has done splendid work . She is indeed an inspiration to all who come in touch with her. In this work the best songs and hymns are sung. It is the aim of the course to furnish students with material which will be suitable for work in the grades. Such songs as " Grow Old Along With Me, " the " Largo, " and the " Pilgrims ' Chorus " are among the number studied. The value of work in such a splendid chorus is very great. Perhaps there are a few who do not realize its importance. However, we believe that every student who has had the good fortune to be in this chorus under Mrs. Goodwin, will at some future time fully realize what a great inspiration the work has been. For the benefit of the Student Body, a series of Folk-song Recitals has been given once a week during the chorus period. These programs were presented by the Special Music Department and the Girl ' s Glee Club, under the direction of Mrs. Goodwin, assisted by Miss Blewett. It has been the aim in giving these recitals to familiarize all the students with material that will be useful to them as teachers. The Folk-songs of America, Hawaii. Italy, China, Japan, Russia, Norway and Germany were presented in a very pleasing and effective way. AVe are sure that the students all feel that these programs have been very valuable in giving suggestive material to use in our future work. 45 wm-A riADIC DOC ' PRC5IDtnT noPA 5PAin VICrP12C5IDtnT BLYinC WCDB 5ECRLTACV GLAiRt BETIDLR TeEA5Ull£C CDiTnTdAYCi fAYc tDHi Ton H[}jt jcnninG5 nOHA nooD i r 1 wmmj conmm gkh udc gilbcct ncim Dunnin ion CL A A5nEl J HATKAl CT DOOtlEU HAl GUn iTr tltAlZnt PAHSY bOY5C AHHA Dl ILL Si mSh WOODS nVDTLC VAIL 5tftlf c-% Lucv n i mnEV BC55IC SUTTOn VALLIt DEE12 CLlZAbCTh nCYCi25 fLOCCnCC UlLLCTO ' P WlLnAWCB5Tt£ LULU DACE LAViniAWLLL5 tltLtriBALLI 1?

One which- we may safely say no member of the class of nineteen hundred thirteen will ever forget. B} ' 8 o ' clock, the halls, stairs, and reception rooms of L. A. S. X. S. were filled to overtlowinp; with jubilant throngs of young knowledge seek- ers — seekers after wisdom in the profession designated as that of the peda- gogue. As each group came eagerly up the steps, the look of enthusiasm writ- ten so plainly on their faces changed to one of dismay as they beheld the countless numbers ahead of them : but, nothing daunted, they took their places in the waiting line and waited — and waited — and waited — and waited — and that was the story of many hours. Dismay changed to slight irrita- tion and from that it was but a short step to absolute dejection, accom- panied by the gnawing pangs of hunger. But all things come to an end some time, and this day being no exception, it, too, came to an end — the end of the first dav at Xormai. A fitting beginning for an entering student, shall we say? The class which entered that day is the largest ever known to have been enrolled in a Xormai School, and we have since been informed by good authorities, the most unusual as to ability, ' e certainly were a sur- prise to the Faculty, and it seemed at first that they were a little bit non- plussed as to just what they should do with so many of us. It was nearly a week before final adjustments w ere made and we began w ork in earnest. At first it seemed queer to us, " So different from high school, " one heard in passing through the halls. Yes — it was very different; the work was not at all like that to which we had been accustomed, and we were really a little bit puzzled as to what it was all about. Of course, most of us had planned to be school teachers for some time and thought we knew ' some- thing about it, but what had these things which we were learning every day to do with the profession, anyway? Well, for most of us it took at least one term to find out how ignorant we really were, to rid our minds of the foolish ideas which the}- contained and get them into a receptive state. In the meantime, friendships were being made l)oth among the stu- dents and the faculty, friendships, the influence of which we have alreadv felt and for the j ermanency of which we sincereh ' hope for. The last days of the first term were days of terror. Shivering groups of Jr. C. ' s could be seen gathered together in the halls holding whispered 68 consultations. To pass or not to pass? JJut finally the dreaded day was over, school closed for the Christmas holidays, and we departed feeling that in spite of first impressions Normal was not a bad place after all. Uur return after the vacation had the effect of making us feel more at home. Then, too, we were Jr. B ' s. How nice it seemed not to be the lowest in the scale, to feel that there were others in the institution who were more ignorant about it all than we. ' e took up our work with a greater zest, became acquainted with new members of the facult}-, renewed friend- ships begun in the first term, and began thoroughly to enjoy our work. The middle term being the shortest of the three, the days passed quickly and after a short recess of a week in larch. we were embarked upon the home stretch of our Junior year. For different reasons quite a number of our members had dropped out by this time, ' e w ere sorry to lose them, of course, but our number was not greatly diminished, for all through the year new ones came in, tak- ing their places. Naturally, our Jr. A term was the best of all. A different point of view became ours and we began to realize how worth while that which we were getting really was ; also how raw and unsophisticated we had been on en- tering school. This term we began to get our first peeps into the training school through our Observation classes. It was here that we were first infused with the real spirit of the teacher. This was our real purpose in coming to Normal, and how very interesting it was. How we " ached " to get down there among the children ! But, oh, the. re ' ulsion of feeling later on when the experience was really ours ! The weeks flew quickly by and before we realized it summer was upon us. So with many new experiences — some trials, and a great deal of pleasure — our first year at Normal drew to a close. September 16, nineteen hundred twelve, soon rolled around and found us glad to be back. Yes, " really and truly, " " glad. Two months " separation was enough to show us that there was something very attractive about Normal after all; some force which drew us toward it in spite of the fun and good times which had been ours during the summer. A e were glad to see one another, and we were glad to greet our friends among the faculty. There were many new faces in this august body which we gladly welcomed, and to our regret manv of the old faces were missing. After a few days of general confusion in getting programs arranged, we got down to work again. Of course, the all-important thing was teach- ing. AA ' e found that to accommodate the large numbers in our class, four of the city schools had been pressed into use as Supplementary Training Schools. Large numbers of the girls were sent out to these schools to do their first term ' s teaching, and our various assignments furnished quite a bit of excitement for the first week or two. Many and diversified were the experiences of this first term ' s teach- ing, some humorotis and some almost pathetic, at least they seemed so to us at the time. One thing we learned, if nothing else. That was. to have 69 more svinjiatliv with our elders upstairs. Perhaps they did not realize it, though. Christmas vacation came around. The Senior A class graduated in all their glory and we went up a notch. Senior ] ' " s! (Jur teaching assign- ments were changed again and we began to feel more at home in the school room, more like old timers, perhaps. It was during our Senior B term that we organized as a class. Up to this time there had been no organization other than that of the grovips. Several candidates were proposed for the different offices and the election was an exciting and hotly contested one, as an election for so large a class should be. Those who attained to the honor of class officers were : President — Marie Rowe. Mce-President — Xora Spain. Secretary — Blythe A ' ebb. Treasurer — Claire Bender. The position of an officer of the " 13 class is not an enviable one. for her path is not strewn with roses, ' out iur executives sh(- v liieir remaikable ability by carrying us safely through with a meniDry no more unpleasant than that of a few- stormy class meetings. After a week ' s vacation in March, we came back and finished the mid- dle term. It seemed as though April 7 would never come, but the day finally dawned, bringing with it the long-desired attainment. At last there was no one to look down upon us, no one who dared dispute our word on any subject, for were we not Senior A ' s? A ' ith the achievement of this honorable rank, our thovights began to turn toward June and graclimtidn ; the wonderful dav when we should re- ceive our diplomas from the time-honored institution, our L. A. S. N. S. We cannot say that that thought brought regret, for one is always glad to gain that for which he has been striving. Yet there is regret in the thought that our days as students are over; that we four hundred twent} ' -five young people who have met together each day for two years shall now be separated, each going his own wav : that life with its problems is before us, ours to conquer or be conquered. But this thought is replaced by a happier one, for w e know that as gradu- ates of the Los Angeles State Normal School w ' e are equipped and ready to go out into life and fulfill the command, " Go forth — and help.

The Senior H ' s are not many in number. l)Ut the select never are. June is a ' ery common time for l)eing graduated. ] Iarch is altogether too quiet, but De- cember is lovely — yes. the month of holidays is just the time for the selected few. Why is this class so popular? You would only need to be a member for a short time to know. They are as mischievous as Dr. Fernald likes to see them ; as dignified as Miss Patterson ; intelligent enough to please Dr. AA addle ; and their appreciation of Shakespease and all elevated literature is an inspira- tion even to liss Seaman, their group teacher. They are. in short, just the proper thing at the proper time. Do they ever cut class! Never — except when it is necessary in order to be present at one of those straw-ride or lawn parties, cross-countrv walks, swims at the l each. hard-time parties, rehearsals for a class play, or the like. " Cuts " might be necessary oftener, if it were possible to take lessons in " Campus-try, " but that is impossible when so few of " the opposite sex " are in the school. Taking: it all in all, the Senior B ' s are ' Tt. " ' niLD OYLCAR. PPESlDtnT HACGAPtT Bt5T Oh, What a Time One of the best times the Senior H ' s had was when, dressed in bloomers and coats, they went to the peak of Alt. Lookout. Thev forced their way through a tempest a long way up the trail until they found shelter with a young miller. They rode in a Rodier An(d)son machine which creaked at every turn, and they probably would never have reached their distination had the}- n tt had with them an ( )ylear. On their way. they talked to a Shei)herd who suggested that they Phillip(s) on Reer(s) at an inn near by. Did they? Of course, they had a big dinner which was cooked over a Fern fire. Cole being scarce. The other good times ha e not been recorded, but thev have had manv such as this. 72 Monologue of a Senior C " Hello, liriam; how are you? I haven ' t seen you for ages. Ves ; of course, you may sit beside me, only you mustn ' t talk. They don ' t allow con- versation here in the library, and. anyhow, I just have to studv this historv lesson. I am taking History I, you understand. " ' hat have I been doing with myself? Miy. you silly girl; do I need to tell you that for the past term I have been studying as never a girl studied before? You ought to hear my program. Besides taking all the hardest subjects in the curriculum, I have to come at 8 o ' clock and stav until 4 three times a week. lint, reall} ' now. I must study. You see, if I don ' t get the rest of my history lesson during this period I shall have to study it this evening, and I want to come to the big Senior C party to- night. You hadn ' t heard of it ! Why, it ' s going to be the talk of the town. Don ' t tell anyone, but I have heard that a reporter is going to be here to take our pictures. Whom am I coming wi th? Oh, just a friend of mine. Really. Miriam, you mustn ' t ask me anv more questions, because after I get this history lesson I have a plan to write. This is my first term at the teaching business, you know, and what those critic teachers don ' t expect of a person I I teach grammar, and I am actually supposed to remember all that work we had in English HI. " You see that girl across the table? A ' ell, she is in my Child Study class and the knowledge she has of that subject is simply apalling. I suppose she is reading for her term paper now. I ought to get busy on mine, I know% but every time I come for the books, someone is using them. I w as here twice last week for one book and both times it was out, so I just made up my mind to let it go until I have more ti me. " But now I am going to study. Oh. look! I brought my old Psychol- ogy book, instead of my History. Isn ' t that provoking? A ' ell, I ' ll just get busy on that plan ; it will have to be done some time, anyhow. But what a calamity I My fountain pen is dry and my filler is home, and — there goes the first bell! Xo use to try to do anything in these last five mimttes. A whole period gone and I haven ' t accomplished one single thing. But never mind, we have had a nice chummy talk, haven ' t we. Aliriam? And I will study going home on the car. " History of the Junior A Class I am the School Ghost ! Ah. I see you have never heard ui nie. That is not surprising as I have a very retiring disposition, and usually render myself inconspicuous in public. I have walked through the halls of Normal by day and by night for so many years that I now know more of the school history, past and present, than do any of the faculty, even Miss Dunn. Yes. indeed. Miss Dunn knows me, but only as the " Spirit of the Lost Locker Keys. " You hear the clanking of mv chains? I pride myself on the collection. — 192,963 locker keys, all in excellent con- dition, representing years of patient search and careful hoarding. Why am I doomed to haunt these halls? The tale is too long and harrowing to repeat. I will only say that I must always accompany the battered remains of poor " Peter " in room P. When his few remaining bones have been laid to rest. L too. will l)e at peace. As I was saying, I know all that has transpired within these walls, — all the joys and sorrows of all the classes that have been here. I have seen students come and students go ; I have seen classes that were good, and classes that were not so good, but among them all I remember none that could be compared with the present class of Junior A ' s. It is the largest class in school, and its cjuality is even more conspicuous than its quantity. Yes, the Junior A ' s are enrolled in all the courses. — General. Academic. Kindergarten. Special Art. Special Music. Manual Training, and Home Economics. Many of my Junior A ' s are learning to cook scientifically, and I can vouch for the excellence of their dishes. You didn ' t know ghosts could eat? Of course they can! Haven ' t you noticed the apple cores left in the book racks in Assembly? They are engaged now in mastering the intricacies of grammar and studying psychology. They have succeeded fairly well in acquiring the viewpoint of the teacher, and they are now investigating the modifiable elements of their personality. Certainly, I am a well-educated ghost. I often become so interested in the lessons I hear that I volunteer a remark myself, but the teacher always mistakes it for a whisper in the class. When you think of it, the presence of a ghost in the school explains manv mysterious things. Have you noticed that the Junior A ' s always appear in full force on festive occasions? There was the school picnic on the new Normal site, which the wind helped to make a " howling success. " I went there with niy brother ghost. School Spirit, and we had a glorious time. A ' hen I think of the new Normal School, I always feel sad, for I fear that then I shall be separated from my class of Junior A ' s, as they expect to gradu- ate in the new building. If it were only possible for " Peter " to last that long! In any event, I have made arrangements with my brother. School Spirit, to go on with the class of Junior A ' s and lead them to success and erlory. o History of the Junior B Class January 1. 1 ' ' 13. marked the beginning of a new era in the Los Angeles State Normal School. It was the entrance date of the Junior B Class. Since as to try to get a bill then people have begun to take notice. They have even gone so far through Congress making the Normal School a Teachers " College. ' arious other things of just such character are now continually breaking in one the once quiet halls of the old building, and it would seem that we had " started something. " At the first of the year our class was divided into two groups, Jr. B I ' s and Jr. B 2 ' s. As the Jr. B I ' s never seemed to make themselves very con- spicuous, a party was planned to see if we might all become better ac- quainted. It was some party, a " News-paper Frolic, " and a frolic it was indeed. I ' m sure no one l)ut the Jr. B. class could have originated a more unique and delightful affair. The class considers itself very fortunate in being able to associate with such an efficient corps or teachers, with Dr. Millpaugh and Aliss Dunn at their head. They are a noble and earnest group of workers, and I ' m sure we all feel their broadening and uplifting influence. They have been very in- strumental in making the school the institution it is today, and long after we have graduated we will still feel the effect of their wonderful personalities. " PUin 5TtUAl2T vccnicc 5unncR VICt-PCE!)IDtnT 76 History of the Junior C Class Perhaps the present class of Junior C ' s have not created any notice- able sensation ; perhaps they have not thus far attracted much attention, nevertheless they are a class full of spirit and en- thusiasm for their new Alma iNlater. Not long- ago the class had a mountain tramp and picnic. It was a splendid success. ] Iore than half of the class, ac- companied by Miss Hol- lister. tramped from East Glendale to Paradise Park. Everyone contributed generously to a delightful basket lunch, which was greatly relished in the shade of the spreading sycamores. Their cos- tumes gave a distinctly ' estern atmosphere. In fact, some small urchins, returning with pole and tackle, were heard to remark as they passed, " Let ' s stay and watch them take the movies. " After leaving the sycamores, it was a warm and long walk before they were rewarded again by finding shade and a cooling breeze. But they soothed their discomfort by singing songs of babbling brooks and shady nooks. From 9:00 a. m. until 5:00 p. m. good fellowship reigned, and the Los Angeles State Xormal may expect some lively co-operation from this new class. Their congenialitv as a class was well demonstrated at their first social gathering. f CAncc5 NOun ELO !)t orrtnDAcn .vict-pRtt iocnTi 77 SOCICTY SOCIETY SOCIAL EVENTS Tlie social e " ciUs which occunccl (luring- the Senior year of the Summer Class of ' 13 are characteristic and well worth mentioning. School Picnic, Fall, 1912 A ' e cannot forget the school picnic which we had on the grounds of the new school site. We left the Xormal School in groups about one o ' clock in the after- noon. Each group was distinguishable from the others by the various color schemes which were carried out to a great advantage. From the school we went to the Fourth Street Station, where special cars had been provided for us. On the way. there was much talk and laughter, which showed how care-free and happy we were. A " hen the picnic grounds were reached, each section grouped together and ate luncheon. Dr. ] Iillspaugh talked to the students and teachers about the new school which is to be erected in the near future. As you all know. Dr. Millspaugh has been one of the most earnest advocates of the new school, and it is largely through his untiring efiforts that appropriations have been made for it. A little later, as it was growing dark, we took our leave, all firmly con- vinced that a wise selection had been made in the choice of a site for our Alma Mater. Valentine Dance, February, 1913 On the evening of this event there was an air of excitement about the school. This seemed to emanate from the brilliantly lighted building itself. As we entered the main hall, the warmth and brightness w hich permeated the place could not but be felt and appreciated by all. So, with light hearts we advanced down the hall, at the end of which we found that the bridge had taken on an entirely new appearance. This change had been made with the aid of a few rugs, and several artistically arranged ferns. However, though the general effect was pleasing, we did not linger there long, but proceeded to the " gym. " Upon entering it. the sight which greeted our eyes was dazzling. Stretched from balcony to balcony were thousands of red hearts which made a veritable maze of brilliant color above us. Added to this, there were groups of green pepper boughs, arranged in various parts of the room. These, intermingled with their bright red berries, gave greater brightness and charm to the general efifect. However, the people who gazed upon all this beauty are quite as worthy of comment. The girls were attired in soft, alluring evening dresses which, 80 in contrast with the dark evening suits of the men, seemed addition- ally attractive. Besides the girls and their escorts there were quite a number of the faculty present, making about two hundred people on the floor. Aliss Jacobs, in her calm stateliness, presided over all. Other guests were Mr. and Airs. Shepardson, Mr. and Mrs. Angier, Dr. and Mrs. Waddle, Aliss Hazen, and Dr. Aliller. Before the dancing started, a program of several numbers was gixen. First, Miss Mathews favored us with a solo, after which Annabel fjuchanan gave an artistic Spanish dance. Aliss Andrews, wdio has an unusually fine contralto voice, then sang for us, as did also Miss Drachman. Miss Dutton played " Dawn " from the Pier Gynt Suite, which was highly appreciated. Following her came Dr. Aliller, who, it is quite unnecessary to say, com- pletely charmed us as he sang, accompanied by his ukulele. Miss Ramona Little, a violinist of known reputation, played for us. after which Miss Robinson sang with her usual sweetness. Last of all came Miss Hanscome, who gave a reading which savored of ' alentine ' s day. After this, there was dancing for the remainder of the evening. Also, there was fortune telling for those who did not dance, or those who cared to risk their future in the hands of a sage gypsy (Miss Andrews). When finally the time came for us to leave, there were many audible sighs, and we wondered how the evening could have passed so quickly. Faculty Reception, April, 1913 The first notable event of our Senior A term occurred when the Faculty gave a reception to the entire school. Think what a great undertaking that was ! And yet, who can do other than feel that our faculty was more than equal to it ! However, much though we realized their capability, our expectations were more than realized in the original preparations which had been made for our pleasure and entertainment. How can we best describe our feelings upon entering the hall that even- ing! We were cordially greeted by several of the faculty members, among whom were Miss Wells and Miss Collier, wdio directed us to one of several tables, where we were told we could be " labeled. " Cards, with the Normal seal on them, had been prepared for this purpose, and several members of the faculty assisted in writing the guests ' names on these. After receiving this means of identification we proceeded down the main hall. As we drew near the " gym. " exquisite strains of music tioated softly to our ears. L ' pon entering the gymnasium, the sight which greeted our eyes is difficult to describe. Beautifully attired women and a few soberly dressed men were standing in groups around the room, and made the general eft ' ect brilliant. The gymnasium itself was transformed into a veritable drawing room, by means of its artistic, simple appointments. During the evening there was much happy talk and gay laughter, above which could be heard -melodious strains of music. Also, we w ere honored by solos from Dr. Miller and Mr. Macurda. The reception was voted a success by all. and we were more than ever proud of our Faculty. 81 The Senior A Banquet, May, 1913 This was the great " come out " affair of the Senior A ' s, anrl there was much ])reparation, that success might be assured. Picture, if you can, a richly furnished room in which beautiful girls, gay laug " hter. and an occasional man, figured, and you have the opening scene of our banquet, which was held at the Mt. Washington Hotel. The members of the class had gathered in the reception room with the guests of honor, and were passing the time in exchanging pleasantries as they waited for the dinner hour, h ' inally it came, and different members of the class prepared to escort the guests into the dining room. Our guests were the President and Mrs. Millspaugh, our group teachers and their wives, Miss Dunn, Miss Porter, the supervisors of teaching. Mrs. Shepardson and ] Iiss Ethel Wallop. We passed over a quaint little rustic bridge, under which was a cool stream of water, and entered the gaily decorated dining room. Our class president, Marie Roe. presided as toast mistress, and it did not take her long to convince us that she was a veritable second Mark Twain as she gave her decidedly clever characterizations and introductions of the faculty members who were to give toasts. Dr. Millspaugh was the first of these, and spoke on " The State Xormal •School. " His talk was both interesting and instructive. Miss Dunn, who is always doing unusual things, succeeded in arousing our curiosity. She spoke of the Goulds, the Astors, and the Vanderbilts. then, in order to break the tension, explained her reference to these people by saying that she was going to give a toast to the " Four Hundred. " Mr. Shepardson ' s toast on " Songs of the Trail " was entertaining and convinced us of his ability as a singer. " Life ' s Training School, " the next toast, was given by Miss Osgood. As she stood in our midst, and spoke in her calm, forceful way, we could not but feel the power of her strong personality. Miss Wells spoke on " How to Bring Up a Boy. " Knowing that she has had first hand experience, with her nephew, we were interested in her viewpoint on the matter, and enjoyed her talk very much. Miss Porter was to have addressed us for a few minutes, but was unable to do so because of trouble with her voice. We were all disappointed, for, judging from what we know of Miss Porter, we missed something worth while. " Last, but not least, " Miss Mathewson was asked to give the " wind-up " speech. This she did in her own inimitable way, and afforded us much pleasure in so doing. Miss Roe then suggested that we repair to the parlor and dance, a sug- gestion which we at once carried out. When the time came for us to leave, we all declared that we had had a delightful time and hoped that we should have another such gathering soon. 82 High Jinks Ball, May, 1913 On the afternoon of May 23, the day set for the " High links IJall, ' " people of all kinds and descriptions g-athered in the lunch rooms. In fact, all the members of th Senior A Class who could possibly do so, came. As the " select " compau}- gathered, peals of laughter came from the ■cafeteria. And no wonder! Clowns, cannibals, Japanese ladies, little girls, newsboys, college boys, cowboys, Hans, Lady Macbeth, and a count, and other people of like importance were continually making their appearance. When finally all had arrived, we ate luncheon, amid much laughter and exchange of pleasantries. After this, we all went to the " Gym. " and each one was given a dance program which was quite charactertistic of the occasion. The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing. During the intermission. Miss Dunn and the cannibals entertained us with a cake walk. Punch was served on the Bridge. Our guests were : ] Iiss Osgood, Miss Comstock, Miss Matthewson, Miss Wallop, Miss Jacobs, ] Iiss Seaman. Miss Hazen, Miss Grunewald and ]vlrs. Hunnew ' ell. The enjoyable evening passed all too rapidly, and the High Jinks Ball ■was declared a srreat success. nuaunjaQ 83 .-iT " lUCILC COBEETS PGtSIDCnT BLAncnt GGirr iTn 5CCI2CTACY niLDCCD iri AY VICC-pRESIDmi AnnA LLCVD TCirA5UI2CR ASSOCIATED S T U D E n T „ 5 Two years ago, in response to a long-felt need, the Associated Student Body Organization was established. It has as its aim the harmonizing of the various activities of the school. The ofificers are elected once a year by the students and correspond to the ofificers of any organization. In June, 1912. at an exciting election, the following student body officers for the ensuing year were elected : President — Miss Lucile Roberts. Vice-President— Miss Mildred J. AIcKay. Treasurer — Miss Anna E. Lloyd. Secretary — Miss Blanche GrifTfith. During the second term Miss Roberts was obliged to leave school on account of ill health, but through her earnest efforts the affairs of the student body had been started. Miss Mildred McKay has most efficiently carried on the work. By introducing business system. Miss Lloyd has brought the accounting of the organization to a system of concentra- tion and simplicity. Where laxity formerly prevailed, responsibility has taken its place. The student body is, indeed, to be congratulated upon having Miss Lloyd for one of its ofificers. Miss Griffith, in her capacity of secretary, has been most faithful in the exercise of her duties. The Executive Committee The Executive Committee is composed of the Student l odv (Officers and a representative from each section. It has complete control over all matters relating to the financial conditions of the Student Body. Dues are collected to help defray the expense of publishing " The Outlook. " Through the efforts of the Executive Committee and by the kindness of the Eaculty, two assembly periods a month have been set aside for Student Body Affairs. One of the pleasant features of the first term was a Student Uody picnic on the new Normal School site. This gave opportunity for getting acquainted with the faculty, and all who attended had an enjoyable time. Normal Cafeteria The purpose of the Normal Cafateria is to allow the students, fac- ult} ' , and the pupils of the Trainii g School, to obtain a hot and whole- some lunch. It is self-supporting, l)ut is not intended to be a money- makino- investment. 87 iriErnoimL mum Tlie Normal School Outlook is a bi-weekly published by the students of the Xornial School. The members of the staff are elected by the Student Body at large, recommendations being oriven to the Executive Committee of the Student Body Organization. Until last year the Outlook was published in magazine form, and was sold to the students. Last year the staff " decided to puljlish it in newspaper form, and with the Student Body dues and the advertising columns as a financial resource, to distribute the paper gratis. This newspaper form has been continued until lately, when the new staff ' decided that it would be well to revert to the magazine form. In the first place, the magazine is more compact, easier to handle, and on the whole, looks better than the newspaper. Besides, the newspaper form seems more appropriate for a daily than for a bi-weekly publication. The Outlook has tried to be fully rejjresentative of all the interests and activities of the school, social, athletic, literary, and religious. The aim of the staff ha:; always been to make this paper a true and worthy exponent of the School, and if we have succeeded to any degree, it is in great part due to the support of the Student Body. The Book Store The Book Store has become one of the school necessities. It meets a need that cannot be met in any other way. It assists both the school and the students. Books are rented and sold, and all other supplies needed in school work are handled. The manager is elected every term. During the past year Miss Goodhue was manager of the first term, and !Miss Hayes the second term. Both managers were most capable. Our new book-store manager. Miss Oral Gillette, promises to equal her predecessors in ability. 88 } Iany interesting events take place on the third floor of the Los An- geles State Normal in the Association Room of the Y. W. C. A. Sometimes a missionary, straight from Giiatamala. with tales of the things that come to pass in America ' s back yard, holds the girls in the Committee Room spell- bound with interest. Perhaps the alluring fragrance of simmering fudge, together with the sounds of light-hearted chatter and laughter, pervades the whole third floor. Then, you may know that a fudge party is in progress. After all. the most enjoyable hours in the Committee Room are those given to the Bible Study and fission Study classes. All of us chafe occasionally under that frequent accusation of provin- cialism. There ' s nothing like a thorough-going course in Bible Study or some wide awake lission Study class to give even a Xormal student the world-vision. Two just such bioadlv educational classes were given this term : — one on tlie Balkan ' ar. another on the Chinese Revolution. Or perhaps, we need, all of us. more of the vision of Los Angeles more as she is, as a basis for a vision of the world. The study of Los Angeles, her highways and byways, her rapidly increasing foreign quarters, her cos- mopolitan population, is indeed i fitting preface to a study of the world. Such a study, theoretical and practical, is offered to the members of the Social Service Committee, and anyone who will may belong. Another spot dear to the heart of the Association girl is Room " . " " where on Thursdays at 3 o ' clock, we gather for the weekly meeting of the Chris- tian Association. ]vlany of us are busy : in fact, we all claim to be. but those " breathing spells " are times of inspiration and rest. There we have heard such speakers as Dr. lacAft ' ee of Berkeley ; Tom Haney, the " Cow Boy Preacher. " and Rev. Lerrigo of China, and right glad we ' ve been for each message. As for our jollifications, they ' re anything but " few and far between. " In fact, we ' ve been accused of being the gayest, most care-free crowd of girls in school — at our parties. And now, for what do we stand in Xormal — we girls oi the Young ' omen ' s Christian Association? This is our ideal — the highest life for all students, socially, intellectually, spiritually — that our Lord Christ may be glorified. 89 i »Hn DtJ2TnA CARSOn UXILt niDDAUGfl VfCC-PCE!)lDCnT " Student Government, " or gov- ernment by the students, was in- troduced into the life of the Los ngeles State Xormal Students in September, the year 1912. It has been a year full of inci- dents, complex problems, and an experimental one in many ways ; tiir there have been problems that have deeplv vexed even " council- nen. " A tremendous task that was un- dertaken by the Student Govern- ment was that of supervising and regulating- attendance. It was the desire of the Council to investigate those students who absented themselves three or more times from classes during the term. Because of the small number of committeemen and the large number of absentees, this plan was abolished after a term ' s experiment. The care of the grounds has been another branch of our work this term. Many additional rubbish receptacles have been placed upon the grounds for the students ' use. Although they have not enhanced the natural beauty of the grounds, thev have served a decidedly useful purpose. Council members have aided Nliss Dunn in seating the Assembly and in taking the roll daily at Chapel exercises. The President of the Student Government Organization. Miss Bertha Carson, has been most active and energetic at all times. She has guided lost " ships " across rough seas to safety and has always found a ' ' means to an end " at the right time. Her services as president will be appreciated by those w ho follow her in office and in work. Student Government has had its initiation year, and low, fellow stu- dents of the State Xormal School, it is your duty as loyal citizens to sup- port the new movement in the coming year. It will be a success if you wish it to be. It ' s your opportunity to govern " self " and. incidentally, your in- stitution. { the facultA ' s co-operation, your earnest aid, and your splen- did new leaders, there is great opportunity for improvement over the work of your predecessors, ' e wish you hearty success. Student Government I 91 Lau ' T O S. E. C. being ' interpreted, stands for the " Si)cial Efficiency Club. " a group of girls who are much more informal than such a name implies. The Club was organized primarily en be of assistance to new students at the be- ginning of each term. Especially were we busy last September when over three hundred Juniors entered this Temple of Pedagogy for the first time, and would have wandered aimlesslv about but for the guiding hand of an S. E. C. This vear other work has been undertaken. At Christmas time the girls chose the Children ' s Hospital as an institution in which whatever Christ- mas cheer we could bring would be greatly appreciated. Ouiking was bought and made by the girls into thirty little quilts for the Ijaby cribs at the hospital. Socially, this Club has been one of the most active in school. A glorious candy pull was held in the Kindergarten rooms in December to herald the election of new members that month. After the girls had pulled more tafify than thev could possibly eat and had fed the remainder to hungry-looking Training School boys, music and dancing vas enjoyed. A delicious luncheon was served on the lower lawn, March 27. in honr)r of the two S. E. C. graduates and new members elected for the spring term. We were sorrv to see Isabel ] laclntyre and Franc Palmer leave our Club, but we were glad to be able to wish them good luck as they preceded us to the ranks of our chosen profession. Everv second Wednesday the lower lawn is the rendezvous of a jolly crowd of girls who eat lunch together and incidentally transact any busi- ness which the president brings before them. Miss Porter, the Senior A ' s friend, is always there to join in our fun and add her valuable suggestions to the plans. The roll of this Club is composed of representatives from the different Junior A and Senior classes. The membership is now as follows: Emma Adams, Eucile Bartlett, Helen Candler, Bertha Carson, Carol Caskey, Mary Clark, Angle Crew, Alice Bradshaw, Minnie Gardner. Marjorie Hardy, Rachel Head, Helen Howell. Hester Lauman. Margaret Mackay, Arline Magor, Lucile ] liddaugh, Charlotte Xewton. Helen Xewton, luinice Orcutt, Kathleen Peelor, Olive Poplin, Evelyn Ryan, Helen Root, Lillian Thomas, Mildred Vandevort. Evelyn A " ebster. Olive A " est. Ruby A est, Laura Wilbur. Lvdia Yoemans. 92 Amono ' the many avenues to knowledge and ])leasure atinrded bv clubs and various organizations of the State Normal School, the Geographv Club plays no small part. This interesting and instructive Club was organized in .Ma}- of 1910, for the purpose of giving students and teachers opportunity of hearing men and women who have traveled in various parts of the world, give us the bene- fit of their travels. Almost without exception the lectures have been illus- trated and in many cases with beautifully colored views shown by the stere- opticon. Indeed, we have been carried, in imaginatio n, to Europe. Asia. Africa, and South America, and to notable places in North America. To give a better idea, the following are some of the subjects that have been pre- sented : " A Trip in the High Sierras ; " " The Grand Canyon, Petrified For- ests and Cliff Dwellers; " " Yellowstone Park; " " Eastern Alaska; " " Canada, Old and New ; " " South America ; " " The Canal Zone ; " " The Modes of Travel in Europe; " " Palestine; " " Constantinople; " " The Balkan States; " " Egypt; " " The Sunrise Kingdom. " The attendance at the Club has been good, and sometimes the room has been crowded to its limit. This is what we want ; we shall be glad to be crowded out and forced to seek a larger hall. In regard to the latter, how- ever, we need not worry, as the New Normal School will aft ' ord us ample accommodations. ' hat are the requirements for membership in the Geography Club, may be asked. They are simple and wathin the reach of all. Fees, there are none ; regular attendance is not compulsory, but one will readily see that attendance is to his advantage. So, bear in mind that a cordial invitation is extended at all times. In conclusion, we, the meml ers of the Club, are pleased to use this op- portunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to our esteemed teacher and friend. Air. Chamberlain, through whose untiring efforts so many able speakers have come before our Club. Also to Aliss Sw eet, the president, to whom no small amount of praise is due for her faithful co-operation in this work; and to Aliss Aliquel, the secretary who has kept a careful record of all the meetings. Great as has been the influence of the Geography Club in the past, there is every reason to believe that its achievements will be still greater in the future. 93 IRL5 LEE. LVE t i U.. ,,,»__ They wanted to see what it looked like in the " big girls ' school upstairs. " and so after three o ' clock, when nearly everyone had gone home, two tiny boys started on their tour of investigation. Up one flight of stairs — nothing much to see except a janitor sweeping sawdust from the halls. Up a few more steps, when. " Hark. I hear some music, maybe it ' s a band I Hurry up. " A little longer climb and now only a door separated them from — what? " It isn ' t a band: it must be fairies singing. " Closer they crept, all atiptoe, and expectant. " I ' ll bet it ' s angels. Let ' s peek and see. " " Oh I " They didn ' t faint; little boys don ' t faint, you know; but what had they seen? Angels? Prairies? Xo. In the front of the room were seated rows of girls, howling in a distressing manner. As the little fellows looked, the girls blinked their eyes, wrinkled their faces, and now and then gasped as though in agony. Facing the girls stood a little lady, waving her arms in a hazardous fashion, as she vainly endeavored to keep time with the sounds which the girls emitted. ' hat had the boys seen? Do you need to be told? It was the Glee Club at practice. The wonders of the Glee Club are too various and too numerous to be mentioned here. for. as perhaps you have heard, even " The lark and the linnet Really are not in it ' ith the jolly, jolly singers of the Glee. " These same jolly songsters are feeling sorrowful when they think of the end of the present term, when about one-half of their number will be graduated, including their popular and efficient president. ' Slyvl Colby. However, as long as they have Miss Blewett as their directress, who is the stanchest. truest member of the Glee, they feel certain that even with the loss of so many of its members, the Glee will go on winning laurels for itself and for Los Angeles Normal. 95 Last rear, in Xovemlier, the young men of the Los Angeles State Normal School became possessed with the desire to get together occasion- ally and work off some of their surplus energy- by means of the gentle art of song-making. Mr. lacurda was chosen as the one best fitted for the position of director of such an organization as the young men desired to bring into existence. On Xovemfjer 5. 1912. the club met and bravely attacked one of the numbers which may be found sleeping peacefully in the chorus book, a number known by the title. " ' ho Is Sylvia? " ' After vainly striving to answer the question, a committee was appointed to go to several of the local music stores and select some chorus books for male voices. In due time a book was chosen which seemed to meet the requirements of the organization. Each ' ednesday afternoon finds the young men gathered about the piano making sucli harmony as has never been equalled around these parts, before or since. Some months later, a clul) mcml)er had a dream and saw a vision of black men whose skins were white, which being interpreted means too much chocolate ice cream. . t anv rate, the organization soon began making preparations for a minstrel show. After several weeks, the club gave a per- formance in the Auditorium on May 12. Such a success as was attained was a great surprise to all. Among the songs were " Lender Southern Skies, " ' A ' ay Down South, " and another, the words of which were written by one of the club members. Ir. Phillips. Two solos were given by members of the clul). r. Macurda very ably directed the performance, and Mr. Miller took the ])art of interlocutor, doing himself proud in that capacity. After the minstrel show little interest was taken in the organization for some time because of the approach of examinations and the beginning of a new term. However, the men of the institution again got together a week or two before the Outlook management gave its great vaudeville sketch, " The 57 ' arieties, " and worked up two or three numbers for the perform- ance. The young men wish to thank Mr. Macurda for his invaluable as- sistance in working up the minstrel show which they gave, and in re- hearsing the songs for the vaud eville performance. In the future the Club hopes to be able to make more musical music and at the same time serve as an outlet for surplus energy. 96 The Story Teller ' s Club was organized for the purpose of ha ing its members obtain practice in story-telling and in hearing stories well told. The first meeting was held October 23. 1912. The following officers were elected : President, Josephine Sayers ; Secretary. Ella Lane. After discussing the kind of work to be taken up. a jdan was adopted in which stories for the lower grades were taken first, and then those foi higher grades. The manner of selecting the members to tell the stories was left to a program committee, and those selected chose their own stories Many excellent stories were told by the members. One feature of the club was to have the roll called and an anecdote as the response. However, this was done only on certain occasions. Miss Seaman favored the club from time to time with most interesting talks and the reading of several delightful poems. Miss Patterson gave an informal talk in which she showed the importance of the story in the child ' s life. The club also enjoyed several Bible stories and fairy stories told by Miss ' everka in her wonderfully charming manner. The programs were mosi enjoyable and those taking part derived much benefit from the presentation of stories. 97 CAHD INDUS ' CLUE) CAMBLEC51 CLUB The Rambler Club, as its name indicates, is a " Society for the Prevention of the Extinction of Hiking. " Its avowed purpose is to take frequent trips to wild and picturesque places where intense silence usuallv reigns and where school and books can ])e forgotten Begun in January, 1912, by members of the present Senior A class, the Rambler Club has had an eventful career. Many delightful trips have been made to canyons and parks. Besides the pleasure of visiting the country, there is also the social side of the Club. On our hikes and at our noon lunch- eons a jolly spirit of comradeship has prevailed and smoothed the wav for pleasure. The first trip of the autumn term was a " Wiener bake " in Griffith Park. This occurred on the afternoon of the National election day. Entering at the Hollywood entrance, we found a peaceful place that had unusual facil- ities for lunching. A stone fireplace served as a stove for preparing coffee and wieners and later served for a bonfire around which a jolly crowd gath- ered to sing familiar songs and tell progressive stories. Home again, we went to find our old friend, work, patiently awaiting our return. Our next venture as a Club was a camping party at the head of ] lillard Canyon. The camp is located five miles up the canyon and is reached by following a pipe line and path. To do this at night was the problem of the members who took the trip in the evening after school. Midnight found them tired and uncertain as to their location, so they camped for the night. At daybreak they found they had camped a very short distance from their destination. The weather was delightful and our stay at the camp so pleas- ant that all were quite willing to remain for " months and months and months. " " Evidently, Millard Canyon is the favorite " hike " " of the Club, for another trip to the camp was made in April of this year. Millard Canyon justly deserves the popularity which we have given it because of its length, depth, and variety of scenery. We hope that it will be possible for the Club to enjoy its coolness and beauty once more before the end of the term, when those who are now Senior A " s will cease to be active in the Club. The many pictures taken on these various trips will remind us of our best times while in Normal. 99 The orfi ' anization of the Social Settlement Clul) was a result of the ap- peal for social ser ice made to her students by Ur. Grace Fernald. through her classes in applied psychology. It so happened that a grouj) of l)o s, ranging in age from twelve to eighteen, who were living in a rooming-house on Xorth Alain street, was discovered at the " psychological moment, " offering an (jpportunity for un- limited work. When it was learned that the Bethlehem Institution, under whose management the place was conducted, would welcome any help in making the place a more desirable home for the boys, a group of students banded themselves into an organization and began immediately to plan a Los Angeles Hull House. The Club membershi]) had reached seventy-five at the close of two weeks. Everyone was assigned to work. Curtains, coun- terpanes, books, pictures, and pennants began to accumulate. Basket-ball, and other gymnasium ec]ui])ment was installed in a large room at the home. Thanksgiving evening found a happy group of Normal students. Dr. Fernald. her nephew Michael, Miss Sullivan and her brother, together with Rev. Benj. Reutepolar and family, enjoying a turkey dinner with ten happy boys in their new gymnasium. On Christmas, Dr. Fernald and Michael entertained the boys at their home in Hollywood. The first guest arrived at 7 a. m., whereupon the d ay ' s festivities began. There were motorcycle excursions, a trip into the hills, games of ball, followed by a sumptuous Christmas dinner. A long auto- mobile ride brought the day to a happv close. Unfortunately, the first of the year saw the boys ' home disappear. The Bethlehem authorities were compelled to admit adult lodg ' ers into the house. The boys have found rooms elsewhere in arious parts of the city and members of the Club still kee]) in touch with them. The Club has receixcd much encouragement from the h ' aculty and members of the Student liody. It has attempted a work which accords with the ideals of our school and ap])eals to the highest aims of our profession. We believe it will accomplish its ultimate purpose in the near future and suc- ceed in establishing a permanent home for young boys, whom fate, perxerse. has denied the heritage of a naUiral home. 100 » DLC.1h. In September of this year the need of a debating- suciet} was felt in the Normal School. I ' jur students interested in the movement obtained per- mission to organize such a society. Membershi]:) has rapidl}- increased until at our last meeting we had thirty in attendance. One of the social events of the Ft)rum was a luncheon held in Room 41. Fun and laughter prevailed and man}- crisp speeches were given. The Forum is planning another like event in the near future. Among the questions debated this year are, " Resolved, That the United States Should Intervene in Mexico; " " Resolved, That Theodore Roosevelt Should Be the Xext President of the United States; " and. " Rsolved, That Shenk Will r e the Xext Mayor oi Los Angeles. " Some ability is being developed in extem])oraneous speaking. ' e hope, in future, that all de- bates may be carried on in that way. President Millspaugh has given his permission for an inter-scholastic debate as soon as we have proved that we have the requisite ability. This we hope to do bv giving a debate in the . sseml)lv at some future date. The charter members were greatlv surprised at one meeting bv receixing an avalanche of unexpected xisitois consisting of nearly every boy in the Normal School. W ' e think this was partlv due to the fact that we honored one of their number, Air. Dean Bates, with the presidency of the Forum. The olificers this term are: Dean Bates, president; Elizabeth Taylor, vice- president; Mildred Travis, secretary; Aliss Koch, treasurer. We hope in the future to be the strongest, most efiticient society in the Normal School, and to aid in the development of a high standard of school snirit. 101 Alidut three years ago the Rev. Thomas J. Conaty, the Catholic Bishop of Los Angeles, organized at the Normal School a literary society for Catho- lic stndents. to be known as the Newman Club. The constitution of the Newman Club of the University of California was adopted by the society with a few modifications. The purpose of this organization was to create a genuine love and appreciation for good literature through the study of the lives and works of our best authors. The members were to meet once a month either at the noon hour or after school. At each meeting a musical and literary program was to be rendered. These programs were in the charge of a Social Committee, which consisted of five members of the Club appointed by the president. This committee served for three months, when a new one was appointed. ' ery often the committee would secure the services of a speaker, instead of ar- ranging the usual program, and the members were always very glad to hear these men and women who give us a broader view of the world in which we live. The officers of the Newman Club are at present only two in number, a president and a secretary, and are elected for six months. It is the duty of the president to preside at all the meetings and to direct the literary work of the society. In this she is assisted by the Rev. Dr. Cotter of Pasadena, who is the director of the Club. But time is not always taken up with work. ' ery often the books are laid aside and the members come together for a happy hour of games and good things to eat. Informal receptions are often held for new members. and these are usually very delightful afifairs. Although the Newman Club is at present only a small organization, its membership is steadily increasing. Membership is open to all students in- terested in literary work; and it is the desire of all who are interested in the Club to make the work as hel])ful as it is enjoyable to the students. 102 The Nature Club was organized in the sirring- of 1912. unrler tlie leader- ship of Mr. Benton, a former teacher of the Normal School. In September, 1912, the " Nature Club, " defined its to be the study of Nature from life. Miss Dorothy Gresham was elected president and Miss Naomi Lilly, secretary ; later, upon the resignation of Miss Lilly. Miss Lora Milam was elected to the office of secretary. The following- quotations are of direct interest to the Clul) : " To study Nature is to find oneself in sympathy with all creation. " " Learning those things in Nature that are best worth knowing to the end of doing those things that make life most worth living. " Dr. Miller has given many interesting and instructive lectures. One was on " The Fossil Beds of the Pleistocene Age. " We were well prepared to appreciate this lecture, having visited the Fossil Beds of Rancho La Brea. Another lecture Dr. Miller gave was on the " Distribution of Life in the San Bernardino Mountains. " Many valuable photos illustrated this lecture. The lectures on " Island Forms of Life, " and " Classification of Birds " were illus- trated by many peculiar and beautiful bird specimens. Miss Seaman also entertained the Club with a lecture on " Birds in Eng- lish Poetry. " As we listened we discovered what an inspiration birds have been to the minds of poets. Mr. Hochbaum entertained us with a lecture on " Landscape Gardening. " He had accompanied the Club on a previous day to Westlake Park. Besides the excursions mentioned, trips have been taken to the Arroyo Seco and Eastlake Park. The Club has enjoyed these excursions and lectures and owes a debt of gratitude to those who have contributed to their profit and pleasure. Espe- cially does it appreciate the time, thought and energy which Dr. Miller has spent in l)ehalf of the Club. It values highly the work of its excellent presi- dent. Miss Gresham, wdio has been so successful in arranging for the excur- sions and good speakers. Great credit is due Miss Milam in interesting students in the Club. The Nature Club is now anticipating a treat in the form of lectures from Miss Baughman, Prof. Chamberlain and Miss Gere. Much, indeed, has been accomplished by the Club in the past year, and it is with bright hopes and prospects that it looks toward the future. 103 Ever since the opening " of this institution in 1881 the boys of this temple of learning have been in a great minority. Today, with the enroll- ment centering around the one thousand and fifty mark, our number barely reaches thirty. This does not certify that we feel " crushed " ' or that we are under many obligations to the fairer sex. Nay, verily, our minds center around an organization all our own. namely, the Owl Club. We met for the first time at the home of Elbert Phillips. Here we enjoyed his generous hospitality, and elected the first offtcers of the club. Chalmer Shaver was elected President, and E. D. Phillips, Vice-president, Secretary, Treasurer and any other ofifice with which we might honor him. Our next jubilee of any importance was a banquet given in honor of the graduating President of the club, Chalmer Shaver. ( )n the evening of April 3, 1913, all the boys met at a popular resort, and drank to the health of our esteemed friend and classmate. Glenn Riddlebarger was elected President, to succeed the guest of honor. After the banquet we adjourned to the theater, where we giggled in mirthful glee to the tune of " The Green Grass Grew All Around, " etc., etc. From the beginning, our club has been a tremendous success. It is the only officially organized body of masculine pedagogues who seek this temple of learning in preference to any other cemetery (I mean seminarv) for the enlightenment of California ' s would-be and will-be teachers. The present members have established the custom of giving the bovs of each graduating class an elaborate banquet to alleviate the sorrow of parting. 10: LITEtMDY UTCGACY •-I .L- Vi_ r =Nr-( Xnw " gins gay Phoelnis to rise o ' er vonder hill ; The mant ' ling clouds retreat with dignity.

Such a home ! How Carmelita loved it ! She loved the red-roofed, white adol)e house; loved the patriarchal pepper trees that bor- dered the driveway on either side ; loved the silver-tipped oVwe grove back of the house, and the vast vineyard that stretched away to leeward ; loved the poppies, " little earth suns " , she called them — ana the waving, breast high fields of mustard. But best of all. she loved the regal poinsettias beneath her barred window, for did they not form a fitting background for Sebastian, when he came by moonlight with his guitar to serenade her, to pour out the affection of his heart for her in wonderful bursts of melody? Ah, yes; to Carmelita. the poinsettias were the best of all. and Sebastian loved them too because Carmelita did. One day there was a wedding out on the I.aguna Sebastian, the happiest man that ever breathed the wedding (nvs. t;_tok Carmelita to his own rancho. Such happy, halcyon days followed. The days w ere happier still when, after two yeai s. Sebastian Junior came to bind their hearts closer together with his tin}- baby hands. But there came a time when Sebastian was to go on a journey four- teen days distant. Tearfully. Carmelita bade him adios ; fear was in her heart, why. she could not tell. Sebastian blithely assuaged Carme- lita ' s fears with a kiss, needlessly spurred his impatient steed, and was off. Down the valley and over the hills his wa} ' led him. thence to the region of pricklv cacti, of yuccas, tall sentinels of the desert. On the sixth morning, the horse, unseeing beast, stepped in a tat- tler ' s hole, stumbled, and fell with his rider beneath him, unhurt, but ruthlessly pinned to the earth. For two tortuous days the scorching sun blazed down on man and beast. After the first day, the horse succumbed to the deadly heat. Sebastian crovelc!;! in the earth till his lingers were foul with blood and sand; his eyes protruded out of their sockets like the eyes of a strangled person; his congue hung cut of his mouth, swollen thick, and his teeth were as set as a terrible vise. He 109 l ' . ' il) ' . Ie(I incoherently or shrieked insanoiy, and always the strain that ran throuc h his wanderinq- mind was, " The poinsettias, the poinsettias. " [• " ather X ' asquierra, coming over the same trail, found Sebastian thus. He took the sick luan to his home and nursed him back to health of body, but not of mind. Sebastian did not know himself. For rdne long months he herded sheep, with no companion save his dog and an oc- casional visitor, Father Vasquierro, or another lone sheep-herder. One evening toward sunset, when the flock was on the homeward march to the rancho, Rey, the dog, did not round up the sheep as usual, but kept bounding away several rods distant to the left of the tlock. Sebastian beat the dog severely but still it did not cease its peculiar antics. The herder investigated and found behind a hillock, a little child asleep w-ith a poinsettia clutched tightly in its tiny fist. The sight of the flower brought back the man ' s absent memory with a poignaiit rush. " Poinsettias " , he murmured, " poinsettias " . and then, in a glad, bewildered tone, brushing his hand dazedly across his brow, ' ' Carmelita, Carmelita. " The sun was not yet entirely set. and gazing straight ahead. Sebas- tian discerned beneath a barred window, a clump of scarlet ooinsettias against a white adobe wall. " Carmelita ' s old home I " he cried, and with the sleeping child in his arms he hastened tov ard it. As he entered the driveway, he nearh collided with a woman, who, seeing the child, snatched it to her breast with a passionate, motherlv gesture. " Carmelita " . Sebastian said softlv. " Sebastian I " she answered joyfulh " . Jr. A 9. Noon! Silvered leaves, shimmering air. Blue divine of sun-drenched sky. Glowing gardens, flowers fair. Silent fields of yellow rye. O noon, thuu tranquil, radiant one. No shadow doth thy glory mar; For all creation toward the sun Doth look, and lo — he is not far! Eunice M. (3rcutt. no LL day the great clouds of smoke and flame had been rolling higher and higher. The heavy forests, majestic and beauti- ful from the hands of Nature, were rapidly yielding to the devouring element. Slowly the retreating, helpless, untamed tenants of the woods passed before the unchecked advance of the dreaded forest fire. Their homes were given up to the wild delirium of the untamable fiend. Column after column of thick smoke rose and hung aloft like a great pall, over the awful scene, draping nature in the sable garments of mourning. From the top of their cabin, lonely in the deep confines of fir and pine. Jesse and Clarence Roydon waited, with bated breath, the swift ap- proach of the borderman ' s greatest foe. In safety beyond that vast, surging sea of death, were their parents. They had taken a neces- sary journey that day, leaving the boys with Ted and Roan in charge. Jesse, the elder, had learned much of the ways of a woodman. Eight- year old Clarence was just beginning to step out upon the frontier of such knowledge. ' ith the rise of a swift wind, the flames moved as if uncontrol- lably mad. and presented a horrifying spectacle to the terrified boys, as the mild, high leap of sheet after sheet registered their awful advance. Larger grew the groups of escaping herds and wild animals : wilder and wilder grew their pace. Strange and motley were the crowds that came — cattle and cougar, bear and antelope, hare and lynx, cub and calf, side by side in the wild race for life. The fleeing tribes of the untraveled haunts stirred the boys. They, too, must join that excited caravan. " e ' ll both get on Roan and go. ■Maybe we can reach the river by Swede Pete ' s place. " said Jesse. " We ' re gone, if we stav here. " The excited Roan was quickly saddled and led forth from the rude stable. As the boys mounted, she instinctivelv galloped awav in the direction of the fleeing animals. Old and worn out as she was. she set a good pace to begin with. The air waxed hotter and hotter, and the struggle up the rising slope was telling on the poor rescuer ' s wind. The river was far in the distance; the flames were gaining on them, and the old horse was being taxed to the utmost of her strength to main- tain her pace. Already the awful roar and the crackling of the pursuer could be heard hot upon the trail. The lurid light, the sheets of flame and dark columns of smoke seemed like the victorious pursuit of the infernal hosts. A ' ith distended nostrils and straining eves, the faith- Ill fill mare was doing her best, as if conscious of her precious trust and the great meaning there was now in the word ' ' win. " lesse ' s eyes, ever trained to distances, sped across to the steady trees " on the ' bluffs by the river and then to the vanguard of death ' s columns, and he said to his own heart, " we can never make it. " The horse was almost exhausted. " Here, Clarence, take the rein. Don ' t stop until you reach the river. I ' ll come later " — and he dropped right in the tire ' s path. " Don ' t let her stop until you get to Pete ' s, " he shouted, as his bewildered brother glanced back. " Maybe she can carry him, " he said, as his desperate, wild gaze fol- lowed him. The fleeing horse and boy were soon hidden from view. How strange and terrifying the great, friendly forest now seemed to Jesse. He was dazed for a moment ; and then, hearing the deepening roar of flame, as if sounding anew his knell, he ran wildly away be- fore its dreadful approach. ()nward sped the Indian Roan. She seemed now to gain strength. I ' reed from the rein and frightened almost to madness, she ran wildly in the direction of the river. Clarence held on, he knew not how. With face blanched and eyes set. he seemed oblivious to all about him. The bowing trees and waving limbs shook out a " God Speed " and a last farewell ; but he saw not their greetings. To him it seemed that the earth was running back and being eaten up by this awful Are. Trees and vines, flowers and ferns were all scurrying away to a swift doom. The horse beneath him was dodging and jumping to let them pass. Like the perishing trees, blank and indistinguishable, the thought of Jesse flitted across his wavering senses. About him the color changed. A strange light strode by. They were in the clearing 1)y the river. He saw the water coming to the fire. " Now, Jesse would be safe, " his reeling brain said. A swift plunge and the water had stopped! A new fear took hold of him. His strug- gling senses could only say. " Hold on. hold on, " as the water rose about him. He soon found himself in a strange house, with father and mother by him. Swede Pete and his honest-faced wife were near. The grief- stricken parents tried to learn something of the fate of little Jesse, but all Clarence could remember was that he had jumped off and said for him to go on and that he w ' ould come later. This startling information only served to deepen their grief. Slowlv it came to them — Jesse had given himself to save his younger brother. Clarence was safe. Pete took another foreboding look at the black- ened waste. The river had met the fire ' s fierce charge. Slowly the ranks thinned and. unable to retreat, fell at the water ' s brink. But where was Jesse? Somewhere in that ])ath of awful destruction he lay. charred in death, as a result of his high heroism in giving Clarence the one chance for life. At daylight next morning Pete crossed the river, follow ed by the little sad-hearted party he had raised during the night. Onward they 112 pressed toward the Roydon cabin, as speedily as they could. By hot ash mounds and burning logs they picked their way, looking near and far for the charred body, of the young hero. Presently the searching party were brought to a stand-still in anxious attention. They thought they had heard a sound of the living. Around were the blackened, spectral forms of the once inspiring giants of the forest, seeming to mock their anxious expectancy with the question, " How could the living be here? ' ' But again floated to them the thrilling sound. It was the wailing of a dog. And there on the blufif they could see him. Quickly thev hastened forward, and as they a])proached the dog, which was now wildlv barking, they recognized him as Ted, a Shepherd dog jjelonging to the Roydon family. He was standing at the mouth of a cave within which they found Jesse fast asleep. In answer to their anxious inquiries, he told them that when he was at the point of exhaustion, he felt a tug at his side, and there was Ted, who, by short advances, guided him to the clifT. He followed him, as those in extreme dread turn to any leader, and soon, before a little opening in the face of the rocks, the dog stopped and whined. And there Jesse found a cave, a secure shelter, a citadel no forest flames could ever successfully assault. And so he was borne out in the strong, glad arms of liis friends, who shouted aloud to tell their unbounded joy to the blackened sentinels that had died at their posts.

After a twelve days ' voyage from American shores, let us land at Naples. Here in Naples we find on one side of a street pretty shops and well dressed ])eople, while just across the street are dirty little urchins and squalor itself. We are surprised to see such contrasts in grades of society brought so closely together. There is no doubt that we are in a Catholic coun- try, for everywhere are shrines and churches, some of the former being- open on the street to passers-by. No one leaves Naples without a drive to Amalfi, so we make all necessary preparations for carriage hire on our trip. But why do we stop on ovir w ay to look into a little shop where dozens of American tourists are eagerly sorting out gloves? Bargains! Yes, white kid gloves at thirty cents a pair! W ' c not only supply ourselves, but take numerous pairs for our friends at home. But alas ! W ' e later found that we had been duped — our gloves did not wear. I tell this for the benelit of future tourist bargain-hunters. " A word to the wise. " Jiut now that we are away from the city limits, we forget about such pleb- ian matters as gloves. Who can adequately describe a sixty-mile drive through a country of orange groves, cherry and lemon trees, with the semicircle of Naples ' blue bav as a setting on one side, and the jagged mountains on the other. Amalfi is the place where many noted authors and artists have re- ceived inspiration. Below us we saw women, old and young, carrying heavy boxes of lemons on their liacks ; these poor tired out creatures packed their burdens from the house where che boxes were filled to the boats, while the men merely stood by and ordered the work to proceed. Perhaps it is best not to repeat the remarks we made concerning these Italian " gentlemen. " ' e later dine at Cava in an old palace that belonged to the House of Lombardy. My, but it is fun to sit at the elegant, long table where knights and princes have formerly dined in royal splendor — a decided contrast to ourselves, dust-covered as we are. should like to linger here and inspect all the rooms and court yards, but it gniws 115 late, so we take tlie train l)ack to . a])les. reaehinj - our " ])ension " ai nig " litfall. As we are falHn; asleej) we hear strains of music under our balconv. so in order to li e up to our reputation as " Ricli Americans. " we throw the serenaders a few " centimes, " and they feel am])ly re])aid. 1 could i -o on at s reat lenj th descril)in ;- the wonders of tlie arious cities of Itah ' . but we must go northward now to the city of Lucerne, where all the loveliness ever dreamed of is realized. Of course we must lose no time in seeing the " Wasserturm " and " lirid.ije of Death. " After having passed over this bridge and examined its numerous carvings de- picting death in every phase of life, one breathes a sigh of relief to know that he is safely over. In the evening we go to the Kursaal. the Monte Carlo of .Switzerland. We watch the men and women gamble for a time, and then go to the concert hall for a little more wholesome en- joyment. From Lucerne a trip to Altdorf is as essential as the Amalfi d i ' e from Naples. It is here that we see a life-size, bronze statue of William Tell, marking the very spot where the brave hero shot the apple from his son ' s head. He looks worthy of his honor as he stands looking off toward the glorious Alps. And now that we are so near we must not neglect to visit Tell ' s Chapel on Lake Lucerne, from whence our hero jumped to escape his pursuers. Now ' let us take a peek at Heidelberg. We look for the L ' niver- sity students with their many colored hats, and ornamental scars across their cheeks, and we are not disappointed. In fact, we actually wit- ness a student duel and are horrified at the butchery. Germany has indeed some queer customs. A ' hile being shown through the Univer- sity ])rison, we asked a man in one of the cells why he was there, and he told us that it was because he failed to finish a thesis in time. I fear if such a system were instituted in . merica. students would be " doing time " most of their days. No castle can com])are with the grand old Heidelberg " Schloss " which dates back to the fifteenth century. We are shown the huge vats, each containing 49,000 gallons of wine, and we are told the story of the old " Kellermeister " who drank eighteen bottles of wine daily. We should like to peek a little longer, but time will not permit, so we move onward and find ourselves next in Amsterdam. Yes, Hol- land — the land of dykes and windmills. From Amsterdam we go to the Isle of .Markden and are greeted at the shore by little children in wooden shoes and stifle skirts, which stand out like the old-fashioned hoops. Their snug little b(jnnets and long curls make them look like live dolls. So many of the children speak English that when a lady asked them where they learned the language, a little tot said: " From the tourists; so many of them come to see us. " No sooner had she said this than her little hand was thrust out for money. .At Edam we saw how the Fdam cheese is made. In the summer. the cows are kept out in the open lowdands, and revel in water and plenty of good grass. In the winter, thev are kept indoors, each in a separate stall ha ing a curtained window and carpeted floor — lucky cows! 116 I suspect many a l:)e i ar in Italy conld sa}- : " Would T were a Dutch cow ! " l ' )Ut wc must not leave before we have isitecl Uroek, the cleanest, little city in the world. It well deser cs its name, for everything in those little Dutch houses is " just so, " from the Delft-blue china arranged around the walls, to the pots and shining pans in the kitchen. The beds are curious little bunks built right into th.e wall and so tightly enclosed that one wonders how those husky Dutch ever get breathing space. The least enjoyable part of the trip was the ride down the canal on a house-boat. In the first place, the canals are very dirty and are almost stagnant. I marveled when 1 saw an old man all bent over, with a rope aroung his waist and shoulders, pulling twelve of us down the canal, and we were not lightweights either. You see he walked along the l)ank and the rope stretched diagonally across to the boat. Upon reaching Monnikendam he was pretty well tired out. but when questioned he said that he had been doing this every day for thirty years. Who chooses to be a boatman in Holland? Now let us go to Antwerp, a typsical Belgian city. What a curious sight ! Large milk wagons drawn by dogs ! In this city we see the most wonderful zoological gardens in the world. Here, too, is the cathedral in which is Rheuben ' s masterpiece, " The Descent from the Cross. " One could look at this picture for hours and always find a new interest in it. We must hasten on to Paris — that city of beauty and varied won- ders. It would require volumes to describe the Louvre alone, so I shall not attempt it. Iv admiration centered chiefly around the Venus de Milo and Winged Victory, though of course the w ork of Millet, Greuz, Le Brun, Del Sarto. Murillo, and others drew their share of attention. We see the EiiTel Tower, the highest in the world ; the Triumphal Arch on the broad and beautiful " Champs Elysee ; " Xotre Dame with its stal- ing gargoyles ; the gallery of the Luxemberg, with its splendid paint- ings and sculpture. If one has ever heard " Tannhauser " in the Grand Opera House of Paris, I am sure he will say that earth and heaven have exchanged places. And now we cross the English channel and reach old London town. So far nothing has been said concerning the people of these several countries. The French for beauty and the German for beer-drinking are so proverbial that they need no further mention. But I did learn something new about the English. No, not that they cannot see a joke, but that they are so overly polite. When the boy let us out of the elevator he said, " Thank you. " When the waiter brought us our break- fast, he said, " Thank you. " AMien we went into a shop, and after look- ing about did not purchase anything, the clerk said, " Thank you. " We wondered what he said when purchases were made. Of course, we drove through Hyde Park ; saw the Serpentine, Rotten Row, Bucking- ham Palace, and larlborough House. ( )ne feels a thrill of awe in going into Westminster Abbey and knowing that under the very floor he treads are the honored dead. Just across the way from Westminster are the Parliamentary buildings, so we 117 obtained permission to see the j reat rooms where the Lords and Commons sit and discuss matters of state. Of all things, when in London, do not miss the )ld Tower contain- ing- the crown jewels guarded by a stalwart soldier with a feather-duster in his cap. What a joy to the student is the IJritish Museum ! Lie can spend weeks within its long halls, always finding new material. Linger- ingly we leave dear old London — for one does grow fond of it in s])ite of its fogs. After a coaching tour througli Windsor, Kenilworth. Oxford, and Leam- ington, whose natural beauties words cannot describe, we arrive at lasi in Liverpool, that busy city of steamboats and traffic. Our boat is ready, so we board her. our minds full of the wonderful things we have seen and heard. Anxiously we wait to take them back to our nati e shores and to share our joys with those at home. — Mvrtle Drachman. 118 €€€StCCET RANCESCA came running into the home, joyfully waving a card. " Oh, mother, look! Here ' s my report card. Aren ' t m - marks fine ! " ] Irs. Damarco picked up the piece of cardboard, and looked at the hieroglyphics there. She could not read Eng- lish and the words printed and written there meant nothing to her. Then she smiled wistfully. " Yes, yes ; Francesca, mother is very happy that her little girl is bright at school. Ah — soon you ' ll be a big American girl, and then you ' ll be ashamed of your Italian mother, who cannot speak or read your English language. " " Never, never, never! How could I ever be ashamed of such a dear, sweet, good mother as you ! But how I wish you could sign your name to my re- port card. I feel so ashamed when I have to go to Mary ' s mother, and ask her to sign the card for me. Mary is so stuck-up because her mother and father can read, write and speak English. " " Ah, my dear, if your father had only lived! But go, run out and play. Mother will call you in when supper is ready. " " Good-bye! " Francesca cried. " Good-bye, dear. " Irs. Damarco stood at the door looking after the flying figure that raced to meet a group of playmates. Then, with a sigh she went into the house. It was but a short time after Pietro and Leontine Damarco had come to America, that Francesca was born, and not long after that Pietro, sole sup- port of his famil}-, died. Since then Leontine Damarco ' s life had been one heart-rending struggle to make ends meet. Now, the tension was easing a bit, more money was coming in, for the fame of the marvellous cobwebby laces she made was spreading, and Francesca was now being fed and clothed like other children. One thing, however, tormented and tortured the mother; one desire lurked ever in her consciousness — to be able to speak, read and write this beautiful English language that Francesca and the others spoke. At home conversa- tion was always carried on in Italian, and it hurt Leontine Damarco to hear her daughter speak to others in a language which she could not understand. This seemed to put her in another world, away from her beloved child — and it hurt. She, confined to the house by her work, could at best but articulate a few words in this strange tongue. Ah, if only she could learn this English! 119 One evening:, retiirnins- home from her marketinj: , she overheard the conversation of two young men speaking in her native tongue. What she heard made her catch her breath, and as she drank in the words, a wonder- ful hope l)cgan to rise in her breast, and her eyes shone with a strange, beautiful light. Tha t night she was ha])pier than she had been for years, and at times surprised Francesca by breaking into a happy little laugh. The next morning after Francesca had left for school, putting a shawl around her shoulders, she stepped out of the house and walked on down the street. She entered one of the many stores, and soon came out tightly clutching a small bundle. 1-Vancesca was accustomed to spending her evenings with some neigh- bors who had a prettier and happier home than she had. Her mother en- couraged this custom, for she thougnt that Francesca needed the company of children more than she needed Francesca. One night, while playing with the children. Francesca noticed her mother hurrying past the house, with a small package under her arm. and furtively glancing about her. Francesca wondered, but just then Suzie called to her, and the incident was forgotten. Another evening she came home to find the house empty. Mother was not there. Perhaps she had gone to some neighbor ' s house. But even that was quite unusual, for Leontine Damarco spent her evenings at home. making the pretty laces that sent Francesca to school, and thinking of Pietro Damarco. and what might have been. She was happier thus, and enjoyed the evenings spent in communirm with herself. The afternoon with its hot, glaring sunshine, seemed a time for work only, and it was in the evenings that she allowed herself the luxury of retrospection. But even while Francesca was wondering over her mother ' s absence. Mrs. Damarco came home, walking with a light step, her dark face flushed with happiness. " Where have you been, mother? What has happened to make you look so different? Where do you go almost every evening? " To all these questions. Leontine Damarco answered not a word. l)ut picking up her daughter, she embra ced her. Then she said : " Ah, you shall know, daughter mine — soon — soon — you shall know my wonderful secret. " Days came and Avent. and now Francesca took these nightlv excursions of her mother ' s as a matter of course. Francesca also noticed that mother spent much of her time with a little book which she concealed from her daughter. Then, one day. Francesca again came running home waving a rejjort card. " I ook, mother, the highest marks again I " " Yes — why, you have an E in Reading — an E in Geography — an E in everything. I am happy of you! " I eontine Damarco carefully articulated in ]{nglish. " Whv, mother! You can read English I How did vou learn? Where? When? " ' " Wait a bit. daughter. Tell me where it is a mother should sign her name. " 12C " Can you write English, too? " gasped l- ' rancesca. " Bring me the pen and ink. " Slowly and painfully, with trembling fingers, she traced the letters, " Leontine Damarco " in the space indicated " Parents ' Signature. " Francesca stood looking over her mother ' s shoulder as she wrote, her eyes opening wider and wider as her mother slowly traced her name. When her mother had finished writing, she carefully laid the pen down and then turned around and looked into Francesca ' s e3 " es. Francesca threw her arms around her mother ' s neck and hugged her with all her might. " Oh. mother, dearest mother, I am so happy. But please do tell me all about it. " Iwill begin at the very beginning. One night I overheard two young man speaking of a wonderful school which is open at night, and which teaches the papas and mammas of little girls like Francesca how to speak, read, and write in this beautiful English language. I bought the books I needed, and have been going to this school every night, daughter mine, and it has been very hard. Now you must never speak to me in Italian again, only in English. You w be mother ' s teacher from now on. It has cost me much money to go to this school. I have not been making many yards of lace ; I have been studying most of the time, and every hour spent at this night school has meant a dollar less. But, Francesca, are you pleased? Are you not proud of mother now? " " Am I proud of you? Oh, mother, just think! I won ' t have to ask ]Mary ' s mother to sign my cards any more. " Reverie I see in the dusk and the shadows Weird figures and fancies grey ; They lure me across the dark river, Away from the realm of day. I follow, forever I follow ; AMierefore should I resist? I float over tree-tops and then — O soul I drift out to the sea — and the mist. To the whispering, echoing mist, Which gently enfolds me like sleep, ' Alid the sighing, swaying waters Of the passionate, wonderful deep. — Eunice M. Orcutt. 121 ATTlLErTICS ATtllTTICS A Ne v Course in Dancing AAHiat is that? — An elective course in physical training " ? Yes, folk and simple aesthetic dances constitute the entire course. ]Miss Jacobs has arranged to give the class folk dances that are representative of as many nations as possible. The class Avas originally intended for only the s])ecial music students, but as thev were so few in number, others were admitted. Besides those enrolled, there are visitors who, catching the s]:)irit of the class, often join us for an hour of pure recreation. We, as prospective teachers, find that this well-arranged course will furnish us with vaUiable material for future use. To receive all that this course holds for you, join it when yt)ur general program is heavy, and enjoy two hours a week of work that is alual)le not only from the standpoint of ]iedagogy, but also from that of recreation. Physical Training One of the most interesting and beneficial de])artments of the Normal School is that of IMiysical Training. Lnder the aide direction of liss Jacobs, assisted bN ' Miss (irunewald, the gvmnasium has l ecome a vital part of our student life. Not onlv is the work an excellent ]M-eparation for meeting the needs of children in exercise and recreation, l)ut it is a pleasure to ourselves. To those who know Miss Jacobs, it is unnecessary to say that the spirit which |)ervades our gymnasium is one of the delightful optim- ism. Though this is Miss ( iruncwald ' s first year with us, she has cer- tainly found her way into our hearts. Her interest and enthusiasm for the work lia e been to us a constant inspiration. 124 A large increase in the meml:)ership of the " Racquet Club " testities to the growing interest in this organization. The club had no tournament before Christmas. Since then the tennis enthusiasm in the Xormal School has flourished and grown. One informal tournament was held at Sycamore Grove. Here everv one came about ten o ' clock in the morning ready to put in a long day of good tennis practice. Ltinch was served on the lawn, where Miss Grunewald, our coach, and chaperone of the day, saw that everyone was well entertained. Alany hard fought tennis matches were plaved in the afternoon. These resulted in the declaration at the end of the day that Miss (irunewald was the champion player. The officers for this year are: President. TTilda Haddox ; Secretarv- Treasurer, Grace ] Iogle ; Coach, Miss Grunewald. TCnni3 • CLUb 125 Boys ' Basket Ball Last year, when the boys ' basket ball team was organized, its members practiced faithfully, announced their games, and played them — generally without an audience. However, the members were compensated by their many pleasant experiences with ijutside teams and schools. During this year about fifteen games have been played ; these included trips to Orange, Burbank and other schools. The two forwards of the team were new this year, the other boys having been members for two years. The team : Captain. ' illiams. (iuards. Woods, AX ' illiams. Forwards, Castor, Swain. Center.

Child Study paper is due next week and I haven ' t read m}- references yet ; my plan for next week isn ' t written, and my History of Education note-book isn ' t up to date ! W ' tih such remarks as these from seniors, and similar remarks from juniors, you can understand why basketball has not flourished as we should ha ' e liked. Nevertheless, there have been some very exciting times, for instance, the h ' aculty Basketball Game which, as everyone knows, was a great success. This game was played between certain mem- bers of the faculty and students. The faculty members displayed un- dreamed-of talents such as acrobatic tumbling, chewing gum (thanks to Dr. Fernald) and yelling. We have had several good practices under Miss Grunewald ' s able coaching, and in time could probably work up a good school team, as there is some very promising material in the school. Some members of the faculty have been very much interested in basketball practice since the faculty game. Miss Hazen and Miss Sul- livan have been out for Wednesday night practices. We sincerely hope that during the coming year a great number of the students may find time for basketball, and bring their enthusiasm to the up-building of athletics in the Normal School. 127 JO 5 H S llil viJmnti i Joshes I WONDER WHY Because we are not witty, Because we have no jokes, Because we print not stories.
