Pg8 K 4 5 Qlma ater QDedicated to the Alumni Associationj Oh, Normal, our Mother beloved, Thy children send greetings today, We love thee our dear Alma Mater Though thousands of miles awayg Though thy Walls may lie prostrate in ashes, Thy treasures be lost evermore, Thy spirit arises triumphant, As brave and as strong as of yore. Gone is the pilot who launched thee, . And silent the master whose hand Steered thee calmly in faith and devotion Through dangers on every hand, And stilled is the mate who in silence Gave service and love Without praise: And absent are many who labored Thine early ideals to raise. How proudly thy spirit moves onward, Directed in wisdom and carey And farther-from ocean to ocean- Thy children are spreading each year: How often their thoughts wander homeward, How sweetly thy memories throng: And ever in joy and in sorrow, Thine image appears like a song. Forever, as long as the weakness And need of mankind shall endure, May thy beacon of knowledge and freedom Shed lustre both steady and pure, And may love be scattered like sunshine Until peace shall conquer all strife, And may the great State know thy power And a nation be blessed with thy life.

We, the Seniors of l9l5, have returned victorious to our welcoming homes and friends. Would you care to hear of our adventures? In l9l l, a brave company came together under the leadership of Captain Diefendorf. Our purpose was to discover and chart the Land of Knowledge, that we might help guide future explorers. First, the good ship must be chosen. After much care we finally decided on the Warrensburg Normal. It was stout and well equipped with good lab- oratories and libraries. ' Each member of the crew had his own tasks assigned him, and he was ex- pected faithfully to carry out this program. Maude Crissman was appointed to keep a diary of each day's happenings. At last all was made ready, the anchor was hoisted, and the brave Class of I9I5 sailed away, leaving homes and friends. Hope was high, each breast was filled with a mighty resolve to succeed. Childhood's carefree days were past: irresponsibility was left behind. After days and nights of sailing, the company came to the snow-covered Land of Experience. Somewhere in this vicinity was the unexplored Land of Knowledge for which they sought. The party chose a snug harbor in the homes of the good people of Warrensburg, wherein to drop anchor. Here the ship rested while sledge parties went out to make observations. There were many hardships: the snows of Ignorance made progress slow. Our company was young, and we did not always know how to plan so as to use ourselves and our equipment to the best advantage: but each unsuccessful attempt taught its lesson. Sometimes our parties nearly perished in blizzards of old Bad Habits. But the rigorous climate made us strong and active, only the slothful ones fell under the doctor's care. In spite of the hardships, how- ever, we knew that we were accomplishing our aim. Each sledge party dis- covered new Lands of Wisdom, charts were carefully drawn and records faith- fully made. There were, also, many good 'times scattered among our privations. We whiled away the long winter evenings with games, contests and amusements of various kinds. The crew divided themselves into groups, each group taking its turn in providing entertainment for the rest. However, our work was always uppermost in our thoughts, and by the close of the winter of l9l4 and I5 we had a valuable collection of maps. Thus the Land of Knowledge was discovered and we prepared to return. As spring. came we shipped anchor and set sail for our homes. We soon found P386 57 Y ...--.. .,.V, v -V , -- -- ----sY that all of our difficulties were not over. Many icebergs blocked our way and only by persistent effort were we able to steer through them. Unchartered rocks were discovered barely in time to save accidents. At last we neared the home shoreg in the far distance a thin blue line of land was visible when suddenly there came a startled cry of "Fire!" Alas, the good ship was on fire! It seemed that all our struggle had been in vaing we should never be able to carry our charts to the homeland. just when despair' was deepest, a speck was seen far off. As it came nearer, we saw that it was a ship. Joy arose again in our heartsg the good people of Warrensburg had seen our trouble and sent a relief ship to succor us. Thus we were able to arrive victorious after many strange adventures. We found the records, which we feared had all been lost, stored safely in our memories. The Great State of Missouri has recognized our success and is now pre- paring a safer and better equipped ship for the exploring parties which are still to come. MILDRED M.

I ilaisturp Repeats Zltself 3' URING the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, there came to the shores of the New World many struggling bands of immigrants from the ancient seats of govern- ment on European soil. These sturdy bands differed widely among themselves in language, customs and religion, but all brought to the New World a common heritage in the form of sturdy bodies and active minds, stored with a working knowledge of the crafts- manship in the land from which they came. They found the new land already occupied by scat- tered tribes of savage and uncivilized peoples over whom they must gain ascendency and assert their authority. Here, too, they found a new environment. and must adjust their habits to conform therewith, while they slowly rose superior to its rigor and hardships. While engaged in this fierce struggle they gradually learned the great lesson of the need for common action. Thus grew upon them the sense of unity, which eventually led to the submerging of unimportant differences of opinion and to the growth of this great people, the greatest on earth. ln like manner there came to this great school, the Land of Promise, educationally, in the fall of l9l4, many straggling immigrants from ancient seats of learning in countless hamlets throughout this broad land. These bands, like those of old, differed widely in their conception of social relations, and, though they spoke a common language, their dialects were varied. They brought, however, a common heritage in the form of sturdy bodies, active minds, stored with the wisdom of their Alma Maters, a knowledge of the common branches, and a mighty am- bition for greater learning and for pedagogical achievements. They too found their new land already peopled by warlike tribes of Freshmen and Soph- omores, and, in addition to these semibarbarians, a greatly superior tribe called the Seniors, noted for their great learning and their domineering spirit. Like the pioneers of old, they found a strange and unknown environment in the form of the hardships of classification,compulsory chapel attendance, great silent halls of study, countless stacks of ponderous volumes, and many other threatening and unfamiliar phenomena. Amid the ceaseless turmoil of needful struggle to adjust themselves, they learned the lesson of co-operation and banded themselves in one har- monious group, called juniors, under the leadership of the mighty warrior and statesman, Urban. Thus organized they have made successful advance against every opposition, have secured complete ascendency over the tribes of Freshmen and Sophomores and have gained perceptibly in influence among the high and haughty Seniors. ln the' light of present achievements, it is fair to predict that ere another'year has passed they will have entirely cleared the land of these overbearing lords, the Seniors, and will have themselves assumed complete control of the law of Normal Two and all its less enlightened peoples, thus fulfilling the manifest destiny of the "United Tribes of Conquering Juniors."

The sky is blue when the warm sun smiles, For radiant summer is in its dawn: The brooklet slips through the leafy aisles And laughs aloud as it ripples on. Yet soon the brightness will all be gone: The spring will die and the birds will Hy To a warmer clime: And the golden hours will fade like flowers Of blossom time. Yet what care we if the moments fly, And springtime's loveliness takes its flight? There's many a day ere the flowers die, e ' The year is young, and our hearts are light, Today is ours, and today is bright! Then come, away, for the world is gay Where the blue bells chime, And the skylarks sing, "lt is spring, glad spring, It is blossom time!" FLORA McDONALD COCKRELL. N N H!

Day in, day out, from morn till night, You can hear his pencils scratchy You can hear him mutter words of despair, And see him rumple his hair of thatchg Like a teacher looking into themes, ln vain, for thoughts that match. And Seniors coming home from school Look in alt his open door: They love to see the despairing Freshie Over blurring lessons pore, And catch the muttered groans that fall From a heart so grieved and sore. He goes to church on Sunday And sits among his class: He hears the parson pray and preach, But his heart it sighs, alas, Over the morrow's coming work, And the course he ne'er can pass. Flunking-cutting-sorrowing On through class he goes: Each morning sees some task begun, But evening ne'er sees one close: Something studied but little got Has broken his night's repose. Thanks, thanks to thee, wild-eyed Freshie, For the lesson thou hast taught: I By sweating, toiling, groaning, Our ideas must be wrought lnto shape for terrible teachers, Whose grades cannot be bought.

The history of the society has been one of progress marked nearly every year by great victories in the Inter society contests, This year the results have thus far been much the same. Neither do the Athenians hold themselves entirely to the training of the mind. In athletics they hold a high rank. It is a well-known fact that a number of the best athletes come from the Athenian Society. This spring we suffered a very great misfortune when the Normal was destroyed. We lost about 38,000.00 worth of property, including the cups and pictures that every Athenian had learned to love. But the Athenians have met the emergency like men. Already S5300 has been raised to equip a new hall. The old Athenians from all over the State are coming to the aid of old Athens. Long live the ATHENIANSI' ' I-I. S. LEET. . X 5 , .

'T' HE lrving Literary Society was organized in March, !886, being the second men's society organized in Normal Number Two. The pur- pose of this organization was to cultivate and develop those arts, graces, and talents that, best promote and secure eloquence and efficiency in Oratory and Debate. One needs only to recall the many banners of success, which looked like scalps of so many noble, opposing martyrs who had fought gallantly to sustain their cause, 'to be assured that the Irvings fought many a good fight and kept the high aim of the society constantly in mind. The reputation of the lrvings has become such that when they appear on the field of battle, marching to the tune ofV"Victory" and under the beautiful ensign of Old Gold and Black, their noble enemies lose courage, fold their tents like the Arabs, and as silently steal away. The few honored men who organized this society and chose "Excelsior" for their motto little realized that the motto they were choosing would live through the years to inspire so many men to higher and nobler ideals. And even in Nineteen hundred fifteen this motto waves to point the Youths to the highest goal, Excelsior. t R. Q. M.

It was established in an Institution. The Activities of the society were not only Literary, but Social. All the Girls who Belonged stood for the Best Brand of School Spirit and A-I Standards, to say nothing of loyalty to their Brothers, the Bacons. But along with their Higher Qualities, they possessed plenty of Pep and were never Stationary. They prided themselves on a number of Things: when the Social Committee of the In- stitution decreed a vote, they were happy to learn the Scads of girls who were simply Batty to be Osbornes. Then again, One of its members had risen to the distinction of Literary Editor of the Rhetor, of which any society would have been proud. While their program on the Bulletin Board registered a most approved Intellectual Feast, the Sergeants-at-Arms of this Reservoir of Culture witnessed Lots of Fun. Their Initiations were said to be Hair-Raisers and the timid initiates mounted the Goat with their fingers crossed. One of the Main Charms of this Society was its Versatility. They were surely Help to all the Best Methods of Banishing Dull Care. They thought simply Nothing at All of being as able to manage a modern employment agency as to conduct a profound and weighty Law Suit. They could scrub the front steps or carry off the Laurels in Declamation. One time their Brothers had a Banquet with Music and Clever Toasts. It was an Affair which will always be remembered as The Party and was popularly pronounced a Huge Success. These Girls and their Brothers laid claim to the Distinction of Promoting two Annual Affairs. The first Sure Thing occurred at Hallowe'en, and the Rabble were invited to'come costumed. The Bill-boards announced Many Hair-Raisers. There was a Movie which was a thriller and the Ten Thousand Dollar Beauty was built on the latest '15 model lines. The Minstrel Show was a Perfect Scream and there was no Fake about it except the Facial Land- scaping. The second Function, which was pulled off December 22, was more exclusive. It was a Pipe that the Perfect Imitation of the Greatest Delusion of childhood was none other than the boss Minstrel, all Trimmed up in White Fur. He took chargeof the Glittering Shrub and passed around Hard Hits, tagged with Appropiate Appellations to All Present. ' When it comes to Spirit! Well, the Osbornes can make the Frenzied Mob at a Kansas Game look Ill! Every one in school knows them and feels their Influence. They are even on Friendly Terms with the Faculty, which is Going Some: they feel that this fact alone should give the Wearers of the Gold Star Prestige for years to come. Moral: "Literary" needn't always be taken literally. I i - MARGARET GIBBS, 'l5.

That the Society does not enter- tain this ideal in a merely sentimental way, but is ever actively engaged in working for it, is evident from the history of its activities this year. ln athletics we have been well represented. On the football Held Karls, Skinner, Ashworth, Gilbert, Swindell and Foster played the game with credit to themselves and to their society. ln basket ball Sullivan, Pressley, Foster, Gilbert, Swindell and Lobban had an important share in the making of this year's team. Our representation in baseball is equally good, and the track meet will find us on hand. We encourage our men to participate in the ath- letics of the school. We share fully, also, in the intellectual life of the school. To all intents and purposes our contestant in oratory, Ray Karls, tied with the contestant who won. ln debate, Spiess was declared the best debater, and, with Gilbert, furnished the best team, thus securing honors for Baconia. In the various clubs in the school, Debate, Dramatic, Science and the School Arts, Baconians take an interested part. ln that equally important field, the social life of the school, Baconians are always found doing their part as a society and as individuals. One of the earliest and most successful social functions of the year was the annual Bacon- Osborne Halloween Party. The banquet given the Osbornes in honor of our orator, the joint programs and other entertainments will be remembered by those who participated as among the enjoyable social events of the year. So, even excluding the profit in our weekly programs and other regular society work, the activities we encourage our members to participate in, tend to develop a balanced man. During the year we have recruited about fifteen new Baconiansg so that next year, with the continued encouragement and good counsel of our patron, Mr. Morrow, our work will continue as efficiently as this year. We, the Baconians, take this opportunity to express our appreciation of the loyalty shown by our sisters, the Osbornes, in supporting our contestants, and in so willingly co-operating in all joint enterprises.

Wiki. QE. Q..Qss4ntiatinn 1' MONC1 the many Warrensburg State Normal P School organizations which demand so much time and effort, the Y. W. C. A. should hold first place in every girl's student life. I-ler Christian activities should be emphasized and fully realized. The chief aims of the Association are the development of strong Christian character in its members and the prosecution of active Christian work, es- pecially in this institution. To this end devotional meetings have been held weekly. The topics for discussion have been varied. Missions, home and foreign, noteworthy Biblical characters, principles of right livingg these are examples of the lines of thought followed. lin conducting the services an in- quiring spirit, clear thinking, and freedom of expression have been sought, Through this channel the Y. W. C. A. has endeavored to produce self-confidence. skill, and initiative, that each member might prove more efficient in Christian work, after leaving the organization, to meet problems in the practical everyday world. The Association in making itself felt in student life strives for 'the happiness of each girl, visiting those sick, sending flowers to those in sorrow, and en- deavoring to lend a helping hand to all in need. It is the policy of the Y. W. C. A. to meet each girl entering the Warrensburg State Normal for the first time, to pilot her to the Dean's office, and from there to a desirable boarding place. Then, after she has become acclirnated, the Association offers her a home in its organization, wherein she may develop her talents, musical, literary, oratorical, and spiritual. By being a member ofthe Assoaiation a girl has access to many friendships she otherwise would not have, she- receives inspira- tion and help for her daily work and finds a pleasant social life awaiting her. That each girl may have the broadest ideas of Christian work brought to her, the local Association keeps in touch' with like branches of the National Y. W. C. A. through field secretaries. Miss Ina Sherrebeck, one state repre- sentative, has mothered this division, has sent valuable plans for inspirational meetings, and has given us splendid ideas of what great things other Y. W. C. A.'s have accomplished and are accomplishing. Through her messages, through the Association's literature, through the co-operation of the Y. M. C. A. and by the faithful, earnest effort of each member, the Y. W. C. A. of the Warrensburg State Normal School aspires to be truly one of the greatest factors for good in student life.

M. C. A. to send delegates to the different conventions which are held for the purpose of instructing these dele- gates. On their return home these representatives in turn make their reports and carry out plans with the assistance of the other members. The Young lVlen's Christian Association of the Warrensburg Normal has received much inspiration from the different conventions, and below we have partial reports of the Geneva Convention as well as the State Convention, by the respective delegates. THE STATE CONVENTION The Y. M. C. A. State Convention was held at Carthage, Missouri, March I9 to Zl, l9l5. The several Y. M. C. A. organizations of the State were well represented, the total number of delegates being about two hundred fifty. We were treated with the utmost courtesy by the Carthage people. The program committee deserves much credit for the splendid program in which some of the best speakers of the country took part. The entire delegation was com- posed of men who were intensely interested in the one question, "How to Advance God's King- dom," giving the Convention an inspiring Christian atmosphere. O. S. DAVIDSON. THE LAKE GENEVA CONFERENCE To have the privilege of attending this great gathering is easily the greatest event that can come into the life of a student Y. M. C. A. man. Q The Y. M. C. A. camp is beautifully situated on the north shore of Lake Geneva, from which the conference gets its name. This lake covers about thirty square miles, is situated in the southeastern part of Wisconsin, about ninety miles from Chicago, and is surrounded with such amagnificent woodland that one might imagine himself back in the "forest primeval" were it not for the roofs of beautiful castle-like homes which show here and there among the trees. But it is not the beautiful scenery that-makes the place dear to the heart of every Geneva man. It is there you meet God face to face and-, dedicating your life anew to His service, learn to draw on him for succor. The wash of the water on the sides of your motor boat as you skim over the lake is exhilarating: it is not for that you remember it, but for the soft wash over the pebbles making an accompaniment to the words of Robert E. Speer, "Dad" Elliott, or Fred B. Smith, as they lay bare to your eyes the need of India, China, or Brazil, or even of the struggling classes of our own country, If you ever have the opportunity to go to Lake Geneva, go. You will come away with a clean heart and a new inspiration to follow "ln His Steps." I J. W. DIEFENDORF.

During this year, the third of its existence, the House has been the happy home of forty-five girls. It would be difficult to record in these annals all the work, all the frolic, and all the fun of the girls in the HY. C." l-louse this year. Our girls have served as members of the facultyg they have taken honors in scholarshipg they have led in the Work of the Womenis League, the Y. W. C.

'5 HE Rhetor Circus, under the capable directionof Adam Humbug and Carl Fraud, made its annual visit to Warrensburg on the sixteenth of January, 1915. 'As is usually the case, many interested spectators were out early that morning to see the big show unload and prepare for its one grand performance given in the evening. - At three o'clock the troupe were ready for their parade through the main streets of the city which were lined with people in spite of the rather inclement weather. John Gilbert, the celebrated animal trainer, had some little difficulty keeping a few of the animals in line. One bear, of a particularly affectionate nature, insisted on breaking from the ranks and hugging some good-looking girl among the bystanders. On the whole, the parade was considered a huge success and was a fitting fore- runner of the evening performance in the Big Gym. :When the doors opened at seven o'clock, an eager crowd was awaiting admittance to the many excellent side shows. Among these was Hi Henry's Minstrel Show, one of the greatest shows of its kind in the world today. Hi Henry, the manager, with his three assistants formed a quartette of negro singers hard to beat.

Monsieur Hall is a great French hypnotist touring 'this country for the first time. He was assisted in his marvelous work by Madame Hogan who made an excellent subject. Q The Incubator Babies were very cunning and ex- iceedingly popular. They were well cared for by their nurses, Misses Laura Wilson and Cora Lamb. The two Fortune Tellers, the Dancing Girls, the Snake Charmer, Fuzzy Dora, the Hereafter, and the Moving and Talking Pictures were all very entertaining and interesting. Mutt and Jeff were engaged for the Warrensburg date by Manager Humbug and proved a great drawing card. One of the most instructive shows was the Trained Fleas. Trainer Wm. Bradshaw proved to large, admiring audi- ences that no animal is so small that it cannot be trained, if given the proper treatment. After a close and exciting Swimming Match, the doors for the main show were thrown open. The large crowd passed through the Animal Zoo, reluctant to leave each strange and interesting animal. The main show consisted of splendid acts by clowns, trained animals and skilled acrobats. Too soon, it was over and the happy people went to their homes, wishing for a speedy return of the Humbug-Fraud Rhetor Circus.

The Eppsies Clinme tu Ulutnn T was early morning in the month of May, l9l4, when we arrived in the qi quaint old college town of Warrensburg. We had been traveling for two days and nights without food and water. Because of the hospitable appearance and friendliness of the people of this little city, we decided to remain during the day and rest our weary bones, as well as those of our horses, and, if possible, to secure a little "interior clecorationf, While the women and children prepared the camp, the men went out on the side streets to beg, some hit back doors and received nice hand-outs, while others stopped at the business houses and asked for money. It was reported to us that the Normal was a beautiful place and that there was some chance of getting a small amount of money and a bite to eat without working, so we all proceeded to this Paradise where we were allowed admittance to the main building and were given money and other things of value. Being unused to a place of learning, we were so noisy that soon all were ejected, some peaceably, some otherwise. Then we found a picture man who took our picture, while we were sitting in front of the Big Gym. About this time a crowd of people in the Normal School, who were called Seniors, tried to steal our wagon, full of the nice pro- visions and clothing which had been giveng but we caught them before they had gone far. After having our picture taken, we went down town again, where the girls danced and the boys collected the money. Those merchants and townspeople were certainly very liberal. The general police call was turned in and when we saw that squad fone lone policemanj coming, we moved slowly to the beautiful little nooks in the woods called Pertle Springs. Here on the hills we ate dinner, played, went boat riding and greatly en- joyed ourselves. About noon when we were just ready to eat we had callers, Faculty members-they are not a bad sort-and they stayed for dinner. We enjoyed their company and invited them back, should we ever come to their little city again. After an evening of fun, our beloved chief, Urban, told us we had better break our camp and start on our endless journey. We did his bidding and by midnight were many miles away. We did not leave old Warrensburg, however, without wishing for more days of Gypsy-hood like the one we had had. Csignedl ONE OF Tl-IE. GYPSIES. Page IW Y I., ... .- f . - --......-.

To secure the location, the county voted 3sl28,000 in bonds, the city 5B45,000, and private citizens donated a campus of sixteen acres within the city limits. The State Board of Regents, as agents for the State, undertook the erection of buildings for the accommodation of the school. On the 28th of April, l87l, a commodious public school building was leased from the city for a year, Geo. P. Beard, A. M., was chosen president, and the school was opened May l0th with thirty students in attendance. Immediate steps were taken to erect suitable buildings on the Normal School grounds. The corner stone of the main building was laid, with appropriate ceremonies, August I6, I87l , and in june, l872, the first story was completed and ready for occupancy. The building fund being exhausted, work was suspended, and the school was at once removed to the new building, not- withstanding its unfinished condition. The building as first projected was not completed until the summer of l88l, ten years after the organization of the school. At the opening of the scholastic year l88l-82, the training department was organized, and has since been uniformly maintained, its efficiency and value increasing from year to year until it has become recognized as one of the most efficient and best organized training schools in the middle west. ' The rapid growth of the school during the three years following the completion of the main building created a strong demand for more extensive accommodations. Accordingly, during the years I885 and l886, a wing was erected south of the center of the main building, and con- nected to it by a short corridor. This improvement provided greatly increased accommodations for the training school department, and added six large classrooms, two library rooms and an assembly room to the normal department. 1 An appeal to the General Assembly in IS95 brought an appropriation for the erection of a science building. This building was three stories high, substantially built of native sandstone and was joined to the main building by a corridor on the west. It contained four laboratories, a number of classrooms, the library, study room and the general offices. The General Assemblies' of 1903 and l905 made appropriations amounting to S75,000. With this money the Board of Regents erected a thoroughly modern gymnasium, which contains rooms for the physical directors, Y. M. C. A. and Y.,W. C. A. halls, bathrooms, and the most approved gymnasium equipment. At the same time the heating plant was remodeled and an additional story was added in which was installed the mechanical arts department. ln l907 the Legislature provided for the erection of the training school building by an ap- propriation of 3550,000. This building was completed in l909 and furnished most excellent quarters for the training school and rooms for the art department and the department of house- hold arts. The Warrensburg Normal School has always stood for a high standard of scholarship. The supreme test of the value ofa school is the quality of its body of alumni. This body now numbers 2,095, and the school can point with pride to the number who have attained distinction in the world of educators and to the many who have achieved success in other lines. Very few have failed to make themselves felt as forces for progress in their communities. . W. N. LAIDLAW.

It was early in the morning, few were awake, When the fire alarm made the very air quake With its doleful, melancholy sound. We flew to our windowsgbut ere we'd spoken a name, We saw that our Normal was all in flame, ' Our dear old Normal Two. Then came the firemen strong and brave, - And did all they could the building to save, The buildings of Normal Two. But the mad, wild flames rushed on through the halls, There's nothing left of them, but the crumbling walls Of Normal Number Two. But all must remember, the thot must not grow dim, It wasn't the Normal that burned, but the buildings it worked in, The Buildings of Normal Two. Page 122 I 1.5 I . - A LJ... E l !

It occurred on Wednesday morning, May twenty-seventh, starting at ten o'clock and continuing until twelve-thirty. The crowd of people in attendance num- bered about two thousandg they were from the surrounding country, neigh- boring towns, and distant states. A It was the plan of the managers and promoters of this Pageant to make it a home-coming day for the Alumni of the school, representatives of each class from I875 to and including the class of I9I4 were to be present and take a part in the Pageant, which was to depict the past, present and future of the school. Each organization in the school was also to be represented in some way. Mrs. Lee Smizer, who was president of the Alumni at the time, with many committees and representatives of organizations and classes, was able to success- fully carry on the plan. ' Father Time, who was none other than Prof. W. E. Morrow, took his stand on a high pedestal and viewed the procession as it passed before him. The first person on the scene was a trumpeter announcing the opening of the Pageant, followed by a, short scene depicting the Legislature in session which appropriated the necessary money for the founding and building of the first Normal. The laying of the corner stone of this building, erected in I87I , was next represented by a tableau. The floats of the various organizations were next in order. Among those especially deserving of mention were the floats of the Science Department, the German Department, the Art Department, the Six Literary Societies, the Boy Scouts, the Camp-fire Girls, the Juniors, the Sophomores and the Preps. These were followed by members of all the classes graduated from the Warrensburg Normal since I875, each class carrying a banner with the date of its graduation. In the class of l875 the five members were present, this number steadily increasing to the one hundred seventy-five of 'I4. After all the old ugradsn had marched by, they assembled, and, as the last act of the Pageant, received the class of 'IQ4 into the Alumni Organization. It was a joy to all Alumni to meet their old classmates and to make new friends. The Pageant was pronounced a great success and those who had worked so faithfully to make it such felt that their time had been well spent. r M.

Qnnu 3KegniZBuntu1fi5 Qllleni Qlertiu' fastball N the first of last September there was a good deal of uneasiness in the minds of all the football fans on the score of the chances of the team. As usual, the majority of last year's squad had vanished from one cause or another, leaving only Captain Bush, Rudd and Criley of last year's letter men, supported by a few second string players, notably the Quicks and Dan Lewis. But, as usual, the calamity croakers were in for a surprise. The first game of the season was scheduled with Westminster, one of the strongest teams in the conference, and while no one openly expected defeat, every one was prepared to console himself if our new team could hold the big veterans to one touchdown. That game decided the conference title, or at least it showed who was going to win that title. Westminster played a strong, hard game, and was by no means swept off its feetg but it was thoroughly outplayed by an evidently superior team. From then on it was only a question of holding the pace. At Missouri Wesleyan the weather and the spectators combined forces to defeat the Normal by one touchdown. It is pretty hard for any group of fellows who are used to the ordinary decencies of life to keep up to the highest point of nervous energy in the face of practically universal abuse. The following week Washburn proved too big for the Normal, and the hopes inspired by the initial victory over Westminster were beginning to be dispelled when a timely victory over Central restored confidence in the ability of the team to produce the goods in time of need. I Even the third defeat of the seasonsustained the next ALVA BUSH, Cam' VI4' week at St. lVlary's did not cause the school to lose hope or the team to lose confidence, since every one knew that the team had notfelt very keenly the imperative necessity of beating St. lVlary's.l . The 76 to 0 defeat of Kirksville Normal marks-the beginning of the second phase of the season. The decisive character of this game put so much confidence in the team and the school that every one began to consider the championship already won, and it became necessary for "Doc" to tell us that we would have to stop gloating and work to win another game. This psychological treatment showed its effect in the defeat administered to Tarkio. The sensation of the season was the Jewell game. Outweighed several pounds to the man, we had an uphill fight of it. With the score 7 to 7, and the Jewell team pressing right down to the goal line, it looked once as though nothing could avert another Jewell score. But just at this moment Captain Bush saved the day by bellowing over to the side lines, "Let's have some ' o' them big guards. Now's the time we need 'em." The big guards did the business: the line held, and the threatened touchdown was averted. But the most exciting minute in the game came at the end of the fourth quarter when the team fought the ball into the danger zone, and held for a spectacular place kick that won the game and the championship.

Captain-elect Dancy is now playing with the Kansas City Blues, but he may return to school next fall. If at that time we are not members of any conference he will probably lead his team, as the Kansas teams with whom we would have games do not discountenance the playing of summer ball. ln any case, the Missouri champions will be ready to defend their title.

Doctor Allen .has turned out successful basket ball teams for so many years now that every one takes it for granted that everything will come his way in that sport. 'TI F there was some pre-season doubt in the minds Moreover, the school was already well acquainted with the excellent work of the players who composed the first string of the squad. Owing to the fact that Ray Sermon was coaching in Wentworth Military Academy, the team was without a captain for some time. On january 8, Guy Rudd, the only old letter man on the squad, was unanimously elected captain. Although Rudd is so light as toibe at a disadvantage, in' practically every game he played hard, fast ball, and led his team through a very successful season. Since the Normal was not a member of any organized conference they cannot, perhaps, claim the championship of anything. But there can be no doubt but that, had we been in any association of schools of our own class, we should have had a pretty good chance for the pennant. The team won every game played on the home court. It held Kansas University to a score of 46 to 20 on its own floor--and Kansas had the best team in this part of the country. We beat Baker Uni- versity in two games, won two and lost two from Kansas Normal with a total score for all four games of IZ7 to I I I in our favor. These three teams, probably the fastest trio in Kansas, form a pretty good basis for comparison. GUY Rudd' Capt' ,I5 We gave the University champions a good run for their money, and may fairly be said to have a good claim to the championship of Kansas. Looking at the season from the point of view of the defeats sustained, we Hnd the following facts: Kansas University was entirely out of the class of any Normal school or college. The Kansas Normal team were giants compared to our boys, and played a hard, rough game when on their own ground that could not but wear down the strength of the Warrensburg team, who had just played four very hard games with Baker and Kansas Normal at Warrensbux'g. The game lost to Haskell on their floor could not be taken as a norm of the strength of the team, owing to the adverse playing conditions. The Haskell floor is so broken by pillars that it is almost impossible for a visiting team to become accustomed to shooting baskets from behind a pillar before the agile Indians have piled up a hopeless lead.

Captain Rudd was pretty well played out once or twice during the season as a result of the attentions of the big guards who competed against him. But from first to last he put up the prettiest kind of basket ball. He is a quick, accurate shot, and particularly clever at dodging through opposing guards while dribbling down the floor. Menze, his partner at the forward position, is extraordinarily quick at passing and at taking advantage of every opportunity afforded bythe team play to increase the score. His accuracy from the free-throw line is nothing short of marvelous. He will captain next year's five. Dancy, at center, has had to oppose some pretty big meng but he is quick and sure at the jump, and has proved especially good at plunging into a tangle of players and coming out with the ball. Every now and then he brings the crowd to its feet by a sensational long distance goal. West's ver- satility and absolute fearlessness in the face of great odds saved the day on more than one oc- casion. At guard he seems able to handle-practically any variety of forward, one hundred fifty pounds up, though no one would guess his weight at more than one hundred teng in addition, he never lets a game go by without coming across with some scores on his own account. As substitute forward, he enabled the game to go on without a hitch whenever one of the regular forwards succumbed to the blandishments of their guards. Ragan, the other regular guard, proved a very substantial support to the work of the entire team. Perhaps the oldest and longest head of the group, he kept himself constantly between the goal and any possible attack. l-le is heavy and strong, and effectively broke up nearly every play directed toward him, thus freeing the rest of the team to follow the ball. While he did less than the other players toward directly increasing the Normal's score, the size of the opponents' scores is very largely due to him. Bald- win, who substituted at guard or center whenever any change was made in the line-up, played a hard, fighting game at either position. The ability of West and Baldwin to play two positions made it possible for the team to preserve its unity in almost any emergency. These six men were awarded letters. V Although Menze, West, and possibly Dancy, are the only ones who will be back next year, there are several good men from the second team, notably Parkins and Swindell, who will be available: and the Normal is sure to bring outx some excellent new material, so the prospects look as bright as ever. , A .seeps g Page 132 l . l-i-1...- his rl'1CC inst rate cor. :ing acy ncy, as ery fer 1 ty lon 1 ar nr es e IS mg Y 3 OHS IBD 'Cal' CS ,Z K r N BASKET BALL TEANI IQIS Pam 133 h oc- , 'f Ag I , d, 1 : t 5 5 S i :tl Lld- 3 cl 1 5 bg 7 A l ?

Doctor Allen, however, is a staunch adherent to track, and has always advocated its development and the improvement of our track. Of course, this form of sport offers an inducement to more men than any other branch, for several reasons. ln the first place, any number of men may belong to a track squad and team, the more the merrier. Again, a man whose work forbids him -to give up the three hours every afternoon demanded by the other sports in which an entire team must all work at the same time can get in his track practice Whenever he has a spare hour or two. Moreover, and perhaps most important of all, no one goes out for football or baseball who is not already pretty familiar with the game, because no one wants to expose his greenness or impede the progress of a whole team. But anyone can find a place for him- self in some track or field event, and peg away at it by it himself, under the direction of the coach. Practically "TIM', CALDWELL any sound man can, by sheer persistence, make a track Basebaucaptainiils 'man of himself. I Our track is at present in better condition than that of most schools of our class, though it is not now what would be called a Ufastn track. There is a rumor abroad in the land that some of the broken brick rubble from the ruined buildings is to be laid in a shallow trench around the present track and cov- ered with cinders. This ought not to be very expensive, and rolled cinders over a porous-brick, self-draining foundation would unquestionably make the best track in this part, of the country. If this is done, track athletics will become one of the major sports at Warrensburg. Page 134 H . v-........i...- .--..--.......l. X f .fi f rf Q , ,Z wang , W.

Page I45 L Y, ,A Y l CEIZIJa1fIinz'5 Message fPrize Storyj ' NE evening in March, after a very strenuous day's work, I decided to retire early to recuperate for the work of the following day. As is my custom before retiring, I turned to a chapter in my Bible and read: "And he said unto me, 'Son of man, can these bones live'? And I answered, 'O, Lord Cod, thou knowestf Again he said unto me, 'Prophesy unto these bones, and say unto them, O, ye dry bones-- So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I proph- esied there was a noise, and, behold, a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone, etc." ' After completing the chapter, I extinguished the light, raised the windows, and looked out on a beautiful moonlight scene. Looking farther into the dis- tance, I saw the ruins of Normal Number Two looming up black and ghostlike against the southern horizon. My thoughts went back to the times spent behind the walls of our Alma Mater, moments of abandoned hope, as when crossing "The Bridge of Sighsf' and also moments of a care free nature, such as one feels when entering Dr. Walters' class of scientific laughing. With a sigh of relief that Dr. Walters' humor had not gone up in smoke as had our records, I turned from the window and soon sleep settled on my lids and my thoughts were wafted off into Dreamland. It seemed that I had been asleep a very short time when I was aroused by someone very close to my ear calling my name. On looking up, I saw my sister who told me that I must get up immediately: for some of my classmates in looking over the ruins of the Normal building had found a fireproof vault in which were all our records of the past years. I dressed hurriedly and was soon on the Normal grounds in the midst of the wreckage. There was not a crowd of friends there as I had expected, but I was alone. . With great difficulty, I climbed over the debris, not knowing just where It was going. Soon a beam under my foot gave way and I fell. I then came to a realization of my location. This was where Mr. Mcpheeters' room had been, directly under the Chemistry recitation room. I thought I heard a faint cry: but, attributing it to my imagination, I devoted my attention to getting out of the debris. However, I was not to gain my freedom so easilyg for directly in front of me I noticed a movement among the ashes, and, looking closer, saw that the atoms and molecules of dust were uniting to form a precipitate. This compound soon took on different shapes, and, to my horror, I recognized them as human bones. I tried to scream but had lost my voice. My hair stood on end. My feet seemed rooted to the ground. Then, "there was a noise, and, behold, a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone," and before me stood a human skeleton. I-Ie glared at me from his cavernous eyes. I-Iis teeth rattled as his jaw dropped and flew into place as if trying to speak. Then in a hollow sepulchral tone I heard the following story:- . .UI am Charlie. In my youth I was a very handsome man, ambitious, brilliant, and had every chance for a great and happy future. I was greatly interested in chemistry and had an appointment to one of the German Uni- Page 146 - .V--. .--.... .......-....,.. ......-.g....,.-...........e... .. ... ,,,,,N,,,,r,-z, M., Y-W " '-m I II I II II I II II' II ,.

But, alas, before I sailed for my station, met a girl. Such a girl! Never again can human compare with her! I see her now as she looked the last day I met her under the cherry tree, the breeze gently brushing a wisp of soft, golden hair against her fair, round cheekg her blue eyes, deep wells of tenderness, love and truth: her 'orm, more divine than human. How well do I remember my aspirations for our future happiness in an old German castle on the Rhine and for my own accomplishments making me a genius of whom she might well be proud. Alas, a genius! My future happiness was blighted by words from her own sweet lips, "I do not envy anyone the privilege of having a genius in her home. I would rather spend 'my future with a man." I could not believe my ears. Could such words come from a creature so beautiful? Were not my ambitions for her happiness alone? When l realized the situation, she was gone. My aspirations went with her. I cancelled my engagement with the University and remained in my own country. It took me several years to recover from the shock. By that time l was too far advanced in years to begin life anew. I realized that my accomplishments could be of no special aid in the scientific world, but wishing to contribute some- thing to the advancement of the work in which I had started, I decided to sacrifice my body on the altar of chemical research. That is how it happened that l was always present in the chemistry laboratory. -"I endured much at the hands of the student body. Besides being hanged by my head year in and year out, l often received blows from the students. My limbs were placed in an unnatural position and my mouth was sometimes propped open. I was laughed at by passing studentsg some of the gentler sex even shuddered at sight of me. ln order to make a few pennies at some enter- tainment, I was made a subject of ridicule. I have longed and prayed for rest and my prayer is about to be answered. Before going to my last resting place I want this story recorded in history that it may be a monument to my memory as the frame of my body was a monument while present in this institution. Not until this story is written and my ashes are laid to rest in a cemetery will l cease to roam at large and torment those who have mistreated my helpless frame. Since you are a member of the sex-that caused my torment and sufferings, I shall require you to write my history and tomorrow night at twelve o'clock you must come to this place, alone, and gather up my ashes and place them in a suitable lot in the city cemetery." ' This last statement was more than l could endure and I dropped over in a dead faint. When I recovered consciousness, my sister was at my bedside saying, "It is time to get up if you want to be on time at school this morning. Did you rest well last night?" And I answered, "Yes, thank you, l rested very well." LYRA I-I. BAI-IRENBURG, 'I5. Q Page 147 V .

The blackness of the winter night Soon fadeth into gray: The tiny stars, too, hide from sight I With coming of the day. And as they gently seek repose, When melts the hoary rime, I view the blooming of a rose, The sun at morning time. And then a flower opens out, The caI'cIes fall away: The gloom of gray, wrapped all about Now drops in soft display. The cloudlet sepals, rosy-hued, Then quietly unfurl: The heavens are with light imbued, A deeply tinted pearl. Behold, the flower itself appears- The wondrous, magic sun Dispelling e'er from life all fears Until Day's tasks are done. L. I-I. W.

Ah, life with thee is joyous, life is sweet- 'Tis sweet to see thy leafy roof outspread, Where birds their lyric notes repeat, To hear the leaves sigh overhead: ' 'Tis sweet to watch the sailing cloud-craft fleet, Fair Spring with passing footstep thrills, Q And all her air with music fills: 'Tis then that life with thee is joyous, life is sweet. Ah, life with thee is joyous, life is sweet- Thy bosom filled with summer's fragrant breeze When, from thy brimming flowers, the bees Delicious nectar drain: When little winds leap, laughingly, To soothe the heart of pain, And pathways stretched cool and shadowy, Do lure the haggard feet to reign. 'Tis when thy maples beam with crimson dyes, And all thy golden leaves, that sigh Like little busy tongues of fires Looking brighter 'gainst the sky, Now to the earth are falling: When restless birds, within thy midst, In saddened tones are calling- Ah, life within thy bosom has been joyous, has been sw 'Tis sweet to watch thee from afar- When Autumn's gorgeous glow ls wrapped in winter's coverlet of snow, When feathery inmates from thy shelter flee: Thy faithful squirrels scamper up thy naked trees: When wintry winds begin to moan ln dreary whistling monotone.- Still then, ah, life with thee is joyous, life is sweet. Aye, aye, may blessing ever rest- On thee that dost God's behest: And when in distant years thy children prove Themselves worthy of thy love, Still true to honor and to thee Will pledge undying fealty To thee in whose fair bosom Life is joyous, life is sweet. eet.
