TA Brief Tlfistory of the Senior Uribe of 1916
BY JWARY IWILDRED IWORROW'
'Early Tlfistory 1914-15
EXPLORATION AND SETTLEMENT.
The most striking characteristic of that motley band of adventurers who came
into the goodly land of W. S. N. in the fall of l9l4 was their restless energy and
their spirit of uncompromising individualism. A few of their number had made
earlier visits to this new land and were therefore possessed of some knowledge of
the territory then open'to settlement. The vast majority, however, regardless of
advice, rushed hither and thither in small bands, each jealous' of its own authority,
eagerly searching for the best location and the easiest means for securing large and
They represented the sturdiest stock of many lands, each well advanced in
civilization, but in their own cramped home lands they had been subjected to hard-
ships and cruel restraints.
Here in this new land of W. S. N. with its vast extent and boundless resources,
their pent-up spirits found relief and responded to the new sense of freedom with
almost willful recklessness, and they resented even the suggestion of restraint. Chaos
reigned among them.
These newcomers found themselves surrounded by hostile tribes in varying
degrees of development, and one of these in particular was of constant annoyance
because by their assumed air of superiority and their disposition to impose Social,
Eclucationalf and Economic theories upon them. This self-important tribe styled
themselves "Senior-l9l5,,' though they were destined soon to be pressedlfromthe
stage of action by the struggling bands whom they presumed to treat with lordly
air. Under such conditions the prospects for the growth and development of the
new settlement seemed remote indeed, and such was the state of affairs far into the
Fall of l9l4.
ln the midst of the turmoil of the Fall of l9l4 when conditions seemed most
hopeless for our nameless tribe of Wanderers there came along a leader in the person
of one F. W. Urban. l-le was a man of great energy and mature judgment who pos-
sessed a remarkably clear conception of the needs of this people. He went among
them freely and counseled patiently until he won the confidence of all their warring
l-lis call for a convention met with hearty response, for the feeling of insecurity
and the need of co-operation had become quite general among them, and now their
faith in this new-found leader grew day by day. -
As a result of this Convention, a Federation of the many groups was formed
under the name of "Juniors, l9l5." Frank Moriarty, a typical representative of
the aggressive stock of the "Emerald lsle," was chosen President, and under his
leadership, guided by the counsel of the Sage Urban, order was quickly established.

A treasury was established and ample credit rapidly developed while management
of the State Department soon ended open strife between the Federation and sur-
. The fundamental weakness of this form of government, lack of a strong central
authority, at once became apparent to thoughtful members of the loosely-organized
tribe of Juniors, but the masses were not yet prepared to take the next and logical
step. Each group still guarded jealously its Urightsf' Progress was therefore slow
and the future looked none too bright throughout the winter of l9l4-I5.
TI-IREATENED DISRUPTION. '
In the early spring of l9l5, on March 6th, the storm broke in all its fury. Fire
and destruction did its awful work. The land of W. S. N. was shaken as by a mighty
earthquake, and 'calamity piled high upon calamity. The call of the homeland
sickened every soul. Other lands were eagerly calling for the men and women and
offering every inducement. The whole-land of W. S. N. was desolate.
But, as in all times of disaster, some hearts refused to faint, some 'heads refused
to bow. One Dr. Hawkins, a gray-haired veteran of many battles, sounded the
rallying cry in no uncertain tonesg and being a man of great authority in W. S. N.
his cry was quickly heeded. Doughty C. A. Phillips, he who was to become the chief
counselor of this new and greater people C"Seniors, I9I6"J and many other tried
Iieutenants, of the battle-scarred I-Iawkins, gathered bravely around him. Hope
revived. The scattered tribes once more obeyed the call of their respective leaders
and bravely faced the task of rebuilding their fortunes. i
Through the spring and summer of I9l5 the work of reconstruction was pushed
with feverish zeal and enthusiasm. Strong hands were stretched across the waste
from Jefferson City. Reorganization plans were discussed and perfected. New con-
ditions for citizenship were prescribed. A test 'oath was given for those of whom
there was doubt. Enthusiasm became contagious and loyalty became the watch-
Through these trying times no tribe in all the land acted more faithfully than
the "Federation of juniorsf' Their work in the reconstruction of the land of W.
S. N. stood out more prominently because the last of the "Tribe of Seniors, I9I5"
passed from the stage of action in the summer of I9I 5. The position of dominance
among the tribes so long held by them was now within the grasp of the Juniors if
only they 'could by some means cement their loosely-federated group into a real and
lasting union. This was the opinion of their leading men, and under the stress and
struggle came the conviction of the masses.
Recent Tffistory 1915-16
FORMATION OF Tl-IE. UNION. p
In the early fall of l9l5 a call for a Constitutional Convention of this erstwhile
Juniors was issued by C. A. Phillips and they responded with one accord. After
due deliberation, a preamble and constitution designed to bring about a more perfect

union under the name of "The Senior Tribe of W. S. N. l9l6" was unanimously
adopted. This constitution provides ample power in the central government, wherein
lay the weakness of the "Juniors Federation," and yet gives all reasonable protection
to the rights of individuals. The machine of government developed under the con-
stitution has proved most efficient, and Universal suffrage having been incorporated
in the fundamental law, there has been no vexing question, or "Equal Rights of
Political Equality" to bring discord and strife. The chief executive is chosen by the
direct vote of the people and W. C. Fowler, ably assisted by a splendid corps of as-
sistants, each chosen for special fitness, seems clearly to have demonstrated the
wisdom of the plan. A
GROWTH OF TI-IE. UNION.
Thus grounded on the sound principles of Democracy- and Universal suffrage
the growth of the "Seniors" in power and influence has been and is an inspiration
to all the surrounding tribes in the land of W. S. N. Slowly but surely the traditional
antagonism of the less civilized tribes has been overcome through patient exercise
of a wise and liberal foreign policy.
Many important questions of state have arisen and in turn have been settled
in a satisfactory manner through the active co-operation of their remarkably intelli-
gent and patriotic citizens. Education has been fostered in every possible way and
the problem of the conservation of energy successfully solved by this progressive
"Tribe," ln regard to Finance, a thoroughly established credit at home and abroad
was early developed and a system of taxation was speedily perfected. The "TribeH
recognized the increasing need for new workers and encouraged immigration from the
very first. At the same time a drastic educational test was adopted and has been
rigidly enforced ever since.
While engaged so earnestly in the foregoing serious affairs of life, the "Tribe of
l9l6" has in no way neglected the cultural side of its development. On October
28, l9l5, the Senior reception was given, and this was followed by the Rhetor Circus
on January I5, l9l6. The unqualified success of this great undertaking makes it
quite probable that it will be again attempted on a more magnificent scale. Agri-
culture having comeinto such prominence throughout the world, May 22nd was set
aside as Farmers' day. On this occasion the attractive side of the gentle are of hus-
bandry was duly emphasized while products of the art were ravenously devoured by
the enthusiastic throng. Late in the Spring of l9I6 the "Seniors,' issued their tribal
publication, the Rhetor. The energy of the whole tribe was exercised in its prep-
aration and it contains striking evidence of every phase of the remarkable progress
of this great people. The closing week of May, l9l6, marked the culmination of the
group activity of this noble people. Its crowning glory was "Commencement Day,"
on which every member of the "Tribe" appeared in cap and gown and formally
dedicated himself to the great task of Educating the world that languishes beyond
the pale of this enlightened "Tribe" and shivers in the very valley of dense ignorance.
' T CONCLUSION. y
This in brief is the history of the "Senior Tribe, I9I6" since their entrance into
the land of W. S. N. - Q
Already the effects of their patient struggles are seen in the rising tide of ambition
among the lower tribes in this great land, and it is confidently expected that the im-
migrant tide now setting forth from the band of the Juniors will fully measure up
to the high standards set by the "Seniors of l9I6," and that the influence of this
mighty people tried and purified by the scorching fires of adversity will hover as a
permanent benediction above all succeeding generations of "The Tribef'

The Junlor Class of I9l5 I6 IS as usual one of the strongest classes ln school
The Class became a permanent organlzatlon September I4 l9l5 There seems to
be one characterlstlc promlnent ln the make up of the unlors and that 1S thelr
splendid class loyalty and school Splflt The greater number of the unlors have
erther engaged 1n the act1v1t1es of the school or have for some tlme been actlve ln
these really helpful and broadenlng agencles Several unlors have done work of
such merltorlous nature as to recelve very conslclerable recognltlon from the entxre
Among those events In whlch the unlors alone partlclpated was the Backward
Party Th1S party occurred ln the latter part of the fall term It was especially
worth whlle ID that lt afforded the students opportunlty to become acqualnted wlth
one another Llkewlse lt was an evening of much merrlment
Near the end of the wlnter term the unlor Class entered a basket ball team
ln the lnter class tournament The team was hlghly successful and enjoyed the
hearty support of the class
The sprlng term always has something worth whlle ln store for the unxors
for It IS then that they have thexr Gypsy Tramp Th1S IS of just such nature as the
name lmplles and 1S easlly one of the most lmportant events of the year The unxors
have been antlclpatlng thls for some tlme and It blds fair to be a great success

' " "--- A "1" ...,
Between the timorous Freshman and the lazy Junior, and at a safe distance
from the pompous Senior, stands the Sophomore, the mischievous, the bright, the
witty, the resourceful, the utterly' irresponsible Sophomore. He is the fear of the
Freshman, the torment of the Junior, the mimic of the Senior, alternating with charm-
ing uncertainty between the ill-will and favor of the school.
However, the Sophomore Class of I9I6 is a loyal, energetic and hard-working
band. In numbers it is much above the averageg and its ability is shown by the fact
that in the fall quarter the Sophomore grades averaged as high as those of the Seniors.
What a class will be graduated in l9l8!
In spite of having to go through rain, sleet and snow to class meetings which
could no longer be held in old room number four, the attendance has been large and
the meetings full of interest. This has been due not only to the loyalty of the stu-
dents, but also to the aid and guidance of our honored patron, Professor H. A. Phil-
lips, whose enthusiasm and encouragement have inspired us to bigger and better
It was at the home of Professor and Mrs. Phillips that we spent a very delightful
evening on I-lallowe'en night. We enjoyed music, games and refreshments to the
fullest extent. It was quite natural on the night when witchcraft prevailed that
one of its agents should be sent to tell the future of the class. Of course we all believe
in prophecies, and the Sophomores only hope that the witches will take care of them
as well in the future as they have in the past.

:::: 1 -sfs Prof. C. F. MARTIN, Patron
p 'Freshman :Review
Fifty of us Freshies met in September and organized our class. We knew little
about how to organize but we had a good patron, Mr. Martin, and he helped us.
He said the first thing we needed was a president. Although young, we are proud
folk and we wanted a good-looking man for that office, so we elected Mr. Maupin.
The other officers whom we chose for their usefulness ,werez Vice-President Miss
Engllshg Secretary, Miss Maguire, and Treasurer, Miss Lewis.
Some say Freshmen are such shy, wild little creatures. Well, maybe weeare,
but we soon get acquainted with each other and we always speak when we meet on
the street. The boys always tip their hats, too. Some of the Seniors won't speak to
us, but that is because they think they are a few rounds higher up the ladder than
we are. We are going to be on that top round in l9l9.
ln October we had a social in the girl's gymnasium. We had a good time playing
games and charades. About 9:30 we served our Heats." There were lots of them
and they were good. The Sophs seemed to think so, too, for they tried to get them
and we had to watch closely. We are going to have another social sometime soon
free from Sophomoric disturbance. '
A One day while we were having a class meeting a man came to us and said he
wanted us to be represented in the Rhetor-to have our pictures taken and have
a "write-up." The Seniors sent us word to wait until after they had their pictures
taken but we knew better than to do that because, they take so much space.
So here we are looking at you and talking to you. If you don't like our looks or words
please pass quietly on to the .wonderful and mighty upper classmen-and women.

Dba .Preps :Review
' The farmer boy was alone one summer evening. I-le was thinking of his plans
for the future. l-le had been dissatisfied for some time with the slow progress he was
making and could see little chance for great improvement in the future. Having
many times ,observed the advantage of a man with an education over the fellow
without it, he thought of his own case and was sorry that he had stopped school,
against the wishes of parents and friends, after completing the rural school.
He had been out of school for several years now, and it was hard for him to
think of starting again for he would be so far behind his classmates. Finally he de-
cided to go to the Warrensburg Normal School
After attending the school a short time he found that his class name was "Prep,"
and that it was the largest class in school, numbering about two hundred fifty. l-le
found that for the most part all the other "Preps" were very much like himself in that
most of them had been out of school for some time, and were making a new start
and were determined to realize the greatest amount of good from their time. Of this
class Prof. McClure was patron and he early showed his interest in the "Preps" by
calling a meeting and helping them organize. l-le also gave a reception at his home,
which was well attended and proved a very pleasant occasion to those present.
The class worked up several literary programs which were of great benefit socially
and in a literary way.
The farmer boy was glad he had come to the Warrensburg State Normal School.
Surely out of such material as is represented in the "Prep Class" of l9l6 the Faculty
can expect some deserving Seniors in the future.

As we sail from out the Normal bay,
Where so long at anchor we sheltered lay,
Safe on the Good Ship "Senior Class,"
From the watch aloft we hear the cry,
"Whither bound?" From the ships we pass:
"To the source of knowledgef, we reply.
We sail on the ocean broad and grey,
Our voyage has only just begun
And we speed along from Sun to Sun,
Upon a journey that ne'er shall end:
'Till fleeting time and eternity blend.
To the fountain of knowledge, we sail away, 6
To debark in the land of perfect day, . 90 Hc
But many a hidden rock and shoal,
Shall tax our nerve and try our soul,
Before we reach our ultimate goal. 9
Dear Senior Class: Our profession demands,
Courageous hearts and willing hands,
As we enter alone the battle of life,
From peaceful school to the world of strife,
Shall we be discouraged, let our colors dip?
Shall we surrender, give up the ship?
Or, like Paul Jones, in his desperate plight,
Cry, "Surrender? We have only begun to fight."
Let us face the contest and our duty do, W
With the Normal ideals and purpose true,
And the Master shall say, when our crowns are won,
"Thou faithful servants, well done, well done." lx
-Corinne M. Barkley.

Taba young l27omen's Christian Ibxssociation
The Young Women's Christian Association aspires to be a potent agent for good
in the life of the school, both in an inspirationaland a practical way. It is theien-
deavor of the association to enrich the social life of the student body and to establish
good fellowship among its members. In the devotional meetings held weekly the
spirit is wholesome and uplifting.
The association has been very fortunate this year in having Miss -Bullard present
some phase of the mission work at each meeting. .
Miss Scott gave a series of Bible Study lessons which were well attended and
greatly enjoyed. Miss Jerome gave a course in Mission study which was inspiring
The meetings during the week of prayer were blessings to all who attended them.
Much of the work done this year has been accomplished under difficulties, and
since we have accomplished so much this year while we were working under dis-
advantages can we not hope to accomplish more when the new buildings are com-
pleted and we can get back to our own home?

Ebe young 5Ilen's Christian :association
The aim of the Young Men's Christian Association is to promote the physical,
social, mental and spiritual welfare of its members and other young men. It had
its beginning in London, England, June 6, 1844, when a number of dry-goods clerks,
with George Williams as leader, assembled and founded the organization.
From London as a center, associations were propagated throughout the United
Kingdom and many other countries. The movement reached North America in
December, IS57, when associations were organized at Montreal and Boston. During
the next three years there was an addition of forty to this number. The growth has
been rapid until at present there are more than two thousand organizations in North
America with approximately six hundred thousand members.
Many of this number are students. In 1895 the World's Student Christian
Federation was formed which is now made up of eleven national or international
movements with a total of eighteen hundred societies and a membership of one hun-
dred eighty thousand students.
ln the State Normal School at Warrensburg is established one of these student
organizations. It is one of which every one in school should indeed be proud, and
to which every young man should give his loyal support.
That we may do the most efficient work, we form our cabinet of men whose duty is
to investigate and improve their own fields. Our Extension Work department
has for a number of years had charge of a country Sunday School and has
managed it with great success. ln addition to this it has lent its efforts toward
brightening thellives of the inmates of the County Home. Our Self-help Depart-
ment has through earnest co-operation between town and school secured employment
for many students dependent upon working their wayithrough school. ln the past
year it has furnished employment to the amount of 542655. Our Bible Study de-
partment has established a Bible Study class which meets each week, and it may be
said that this class has proved of great interest and value to those who attend. The
Membership Committee has made this the largest organization of men in school.
The Program Committee arranges-programs varying somewhat in character. An
important feature of all programs is the devotional exercises. Interesting talks on
wide-awake subjects for men are frequently given by faculty members and church
Through these messages, through the Association's literature, through the co-
operation of the Young Women's Christian Association and by the faithful, earnest
effort of each member, the Young Men's Christian Association of the Warrensburg
State Normal School aspires to be one of the largest forces for good in student life.

Tfistory of the Osborne 'Literary Society
George L. Osborne was born near Union Town in Fayette County, Pennsylvania,
December l8, IS35. At the age of twenty, having already taught for a time,- he
entered Waynesburg College and after many interruptions succeeded in taking out
his A. M. degree. After teaching for a number of years in the higher graded schools
of Pennsylvania, he was, in 1865, elected professor of mathematics in the South
Western Normal College of that state. In IS68 he took charge of the public schools
of Macon, Mo., and in l87I assumed the same position in Louisiana, Mo. In 1875
he was elected to the presidency of the Warrensburg State Normal School, then a
young institution, and held that position until the time of his death in November,
l898. He guided the school thru many trying circumstances and did much to make
it what it now is, being at its head almost a quarter of a century. To this honored
and beloved President our Society owes its name.
Numerous literary societies had sprung up in the school, one of which was called
the Crescent. This society was composed of seven members, but in january, IS95,
trouble having arisen, five seceded and organized a new society, calling it the Lit-
cultindivid. This name was soon changed to Osborne, and thus we have borne it
for twenty-one years. These five charter members were Selma Achenbach, now Mrs.
James Thornton of Warrensburgg Edmuncla Nickerson, now Mrs. Paul Brokaw
of St. Louis: Verda Bell, now teaching in -Missouri City, Carrie DeGraw, deceased,
and Mamie Stuart, then an alumnus and member of the faculty, now Mrs. Hartley
of Kansas City. The first named was their enthusiastic president. Ten other girls
were invited to join them and for some time the membership was limited to fifteen.
It is interesting to know that this organization was partly responsible for the Old
Normal Yell which still survives. ,
It seems fitting this "year after the fire" to remind ourselves of our responsibility,
since our Society is the only memorial the school now has of this lamented President.
So let this name forever be our inspiration in all that we undertake, for thereby
success will surely come.
"Lives of great men oft remind us,
We can make our lives sublimeg
And departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time."

Tlfistory of the Campbell 'Literary Society
Many years ago the students of Normal Number Two realized the need of such
work and social pleasure as could be obtained from Literary Societies. Then, as now,
there were in school groups of students especially congenial which formed "sets" or
"crowds" So the different societies came into existence.
ln 1898 there were in this school nine societiesg namely, the lrving, the Athenian
and the Baconian, men's societies, and the Browning, the Adelphi, E. E. P., Emer-
sonian and Palma, girl's societies. Of course, of so many literary organizations, no
one could be very strong. The Adelphi, for example, was composed of not more
than a dozen members.
ln October, l898, it was suggested that the Browning, Emersonian and Adelphi
societies unite. A joint meeting was called in Room Twelve, and the question was
weighed. It was agreed that they would unite. The first president was Miss Anna
Tull. The next thing to be considered was a name. None of the old names could
be used, because it was the general understanding that each society was to give up
everything. It was suggested that the new organization be named for one who for
almost twenty-five years was the honored and well loved vice-president of the Normal
School. The name Campbell was at once adopted and the society took as its ideal

The meetings of the Campbell Literary Society were held in Room Seven.
The members surely must have realized that "ln Union there is Strength,,', and
must have worked together loyally, considering the excellent Campbell Society we
have today. V
ln the fall of l899 the E. E. P. disbanded and some of their members joined
the Campbells. ln l906 the Campbells moved into their new hall in the Dockery
In August, a few years back the Campbell Memorial Fund was started, 315.00
beingset aside at that time for the purpose.
The Colonial Party was made an annual social event of the Society.
Since the fire, March 6, I9l5, our hall has been used as a classroom. We are
looking forward to the time when we shall have a new hall in the Administration
Building which will surpass the old one. '
We have bright hopes for Campbells of future years. May they always main-
tain the same high standards, and may the purple and lavender long hold sway in
Normal Number Two.

Obe ,Albanian .literary Society
The Athenian Literary Society has been no exception to the group of student
activities which has suffered a large degree of discomfort as a result of the destruction
of the buildings in l9l5. ln the face of this, however, our society has made marked
progress, a fact which clearly shows that we are masters of the situation. All the
traditions of the society have been substantially upheld. ' - f
The problem confronting the Athenian society, and it is one which confronts
all societies of a like nature, has been in a wise choice of programs. Standing as
we do for a many-sided development, the choice of material for incorporation into
the weekly program has not been an easy one. We feel that we have in some measure
solved this problem. Current topics are often assigned with the purpose of keeping
all members fairly conversant with the trend of affairs in the world at large. Then,
too, our programs help us to become familiar with the world's musical and literary
The past year has been a highly successful and enjoyable one for our society.
Truly we have met with reverses, but success alone cannot round out a life to its
fullest and noblest. It is Browning who really characterizes best the purpose of
reverses in life when he writes in his famous "Epilogue to Asolandon-"Held we fall
to rise, are baffled to fight better." The membership of the Athenian Society is
steadily increasing, a fact which causes great satisfaction, since a great number of
those now enrolled are seniors and will no longer be with us after the closelof the school
' No loyal Athenian would fail to mention the pride he feels in the Pericleans,
our sister Society, and the pleasure that their achievements give him, nor would he
ever be likely to forget the occasions on which they have made the Athenians the
recipients of their hospitality. V
The Athenians are well pleased with the success their work has met with in the
past, and are looking forward to an even more glorious future. We feel that our
greatest possibilities will be easier of attainment when we shall again meet in a per-
manent hall. S

The work' of the Music Department of the Normal is very efficiently directed
by Professor Solomon. ln this Department are found the following: Band, Orches-
tra, Mandolin Club, Treble Clef, Ladies' Quartet, Male Glee Club, Male Quartet
and Big Chorus.
I These organizations have voluntary enrollment and definite work all thru the
school year. The Band, which is led by Prof. Meyer, furnishes the music at football,
basket-ball and baseball games that makes our boys win. It also has a prominent part
on the programs of the "pep" meetings. Selections by the Orchestra and Mandolin
Club are always rendered at lnter-Society Contests, and many times in the As-
Miss Clara Hinsdell is the Director of the Ladies' Quartet, and Mr. Solomon
of the Male Quartet. The latter, at the time the Rhetor goes to press, is planning
trips to nearby towns under the auspices of High School Organizations.
The Music organizations are usually "overworked" in the summer. Open-air
concerts are given weekly from the balcony of the gymnasium and Warrensburg
music lovers come in crowds and find comfortable seats on the campus to listen to
the well-prepared selections.
The greatest musical event of the year is the Music Festival in the Spring. This
year's program promises to eclipse all previous efforts. The program is as follows:
Monday, May l-8:00 P. M.-"The Wreck of the I-lesperusf' Normal Chorus
Tuesday, May 2-3:00 P. M.-Pipe Organ Recital, Prof. E.. R. Kroeger, St.
Tuesday, May 2-8:00 P. M.-Piano Lecture, Prof. E. R. Kroeger, St. Louis.
Wednesday, May 3-3:00 P. M.-Orchestra Concert by Minneapolis Symphony
Wednesday, May 3-8:00 P. M.-Contest in Piano, Voices and Choruses.

Even while june was yet young there could be heard the thud of the boot
and the pigskin oval could be seen sailing over the gridiron of Normal II.
The number of the disciples of the oblate spheroid was somewhat limited until
the great exodus from other parts hitherward began in the second week of
September. It was then that their number became sufficient to be detri-
mental to the hygienic welfare of the grass of the gridiron. It was then that
the football rooters began to come forth from their various lairs of hiberna-
tion and perch themselves sedately upon the bleachers. What sage dis-
cussions and predictions went forth among those sons of leisure it is impossible
for your historian to record. But suffice it to say that when "Doc" appeared
he was greeted with the query-"Are we going to have a football team?"
"Well, it certainly looks like it."
Work would then begin in earnest and up and down the field would go
the squads until the sun was sinking low in the western horizon. Then "Doc"
would call out "Up and down the Held once more and we'll go in." When
and away "Doc" would swing in the lead.
After a quick shower there was a wild rush to the supper table where the
Brutes became brutes indeed in the eyes of the landlady, for there seemed to
be no limit to the amount of food they were capable of stowing away.
, After a few weeks of such routine there appeared before the Brutes an
antagonistic aggregation in the shape of eleven huge veterinary doctors. A
battle royal ensued in which, to the immense satisfaction of the assembled
students, townspeople and other rooters, the Brutes came off victorious by a
Rumors then began to float into the Brute camp of the wonderful
' prowess of ,a football team which had its abode at St. Marys, Kansas. A
RAY F- PARKINS QPERKJ journey was made thenceward in which the chief incidents were eating dinner
QCapt. and Capt.-Electj and changing clothes on a swiftly-moving train. The largest impression the
Carrollton Brutes received of St. Marys' little boys was that they had considerable lung

N s. I4 and I5 , ,
Kansas, where they spent a delightful sojourn of twenty-four hours. It was
here that they witnessed a fierce battle between two jayhawker tribes in which the jayhawkers of the
Normal species suffered stage fright and defeat. ' I
The dread disease of over-confidence then began to make its appearance among the followers of Cap-
tain Parkins, for were not their next opponents to be the Veterinary Doctors and had they not beaten
them 24-7 with the second team playing most of the time? The "horse doctors" were met and as
Professor Morrow said, "The Lord was certainly with the Brutesf' for at the end of a game in which they
had shown anything but class, the score was still I0-7 in their favor.
The brutes next jwurneyed to the most central capital in the Union-Topeka, Kansas, where they
met defeat at the han is of the Washburn team by a score of I9-7. The Brutes had great difficulty in
holding their feet upon this occasion as the field was covered with straw owing to .the failure of the
Kansans to harvest their wheat. The next week, due to cancelled games, the Brutes found no antago-
nist to oppose them. However about this time "Pete," a brother of "Doc," appeared, and there was no
rest for the wicked.

the fact that the "Miners"
had an off-tackle play that
bewildered our boys. Alas!
however, after the line had
held nobly one of Taylor's
punts was blocked and the
referee decided it was the
"Miners" ball which gave
them I3 to our 7.
A journey was then made

making the East of .Difficulties
The outlook for basket-ball at the beginning of the season
of 1916 was probably the most inauspicious that ever dawned
at Normal ll. In fact there was doubt in the minds of many
whether we would have any basket-ball season at 'all.' The
Training School was not yet complete and there was no place
for the library except the big gym. The completion of the
Training School had been promised so often that the student
body refused to believe any reports and said they did not
believe we should have the use of the building until they saw
with their own eyes themselves in it.
ln spite of all the difhculties and this poor outlook "Doc"
went ahead and arranged for the best schedule of games that
has ever been played upon the Normal floor. In spite of
rumors, the men came out at 8:00 o'clock every night and
moved back the chairs and tables and practiced faithfully.
Their patience was finally rewarded when the library was
moved February 1, 1916. '
One game had already been played with Kemper Military
Academy as a sort of curtain raiser. Our boys showed that we
had a right to expect great things of them and won by a score
Then came a regular succession of big games, starting with
the Haskell Indians, February II and 12. The Haskell team
Caccording to their own statementl is the best the school has
ever had. Yet we won the first game 33-45. They came back
strong the second night, taking the game by a score of 26-20.
We next got into the university class when Oklahoma U.
played here February I8 and 19. We won both games, taking
the first, 43-44, the second, 41-58.
February 25 and 26 we faced our old rivals, the Kansas
Normals. We lost both games, the first 47-33, the second
36-35. This second game was probably the most exciting
game of the season, for at no time was there a difference of
more than four points in the score. Louis BflENZE QCapt.D
Conference, the Kansas Aggies. They succeeded in annexing
the game by a score of 39-33.
The last two games of the season were with the University
of St. Louis, .March I0 and 11. We succeeded in taking both
games-one 25-48, the other, 33-39. K
Another fact worthy of notice was that we were heavily
outweighed as our heaviest man weighed only 152 pounds and
the opposing teams averaged several pounds heavier. It was
also evident that the home schedule consisting of games with
teams generally supposed to be far above our class was more
successful than the fan's wildest dream.
'4Boob" received his early basket-ball
training at Central High School in
Kansas City. He played here two
years, being captain the second year. lt
was while playing on this team that hc
received the appellation '1The Kansas
City Starf, He has been the Normals'
best floor man and point gainer for the
past two years. He will probably grace
the Normal court another year, so look
out, Opposing Teams.
Only two games were played away from home, both of which we won, one with Sedalia Y. M. C. A.,
29-51, and the other, Park College, 34-37.
At the beginning of the season, John Thrailkill offered blankets to each of the seven players who
should be most beneficial to the W. S. N. team. They were won by Menze, West, Taylor, Gunn, Moles,
Caldwell and Parkins.

Ottawa, Kan. .
"Shot" played three years on the Ottawa Academy team.
He captained them during the last two years of his stay.
He will be with us again next year, so we can be assured that
no opposing center will have time to loaf on the job and get
away with it.
Altho "Micky" is small, he is right there when it comes to
covering his man. He will be a mainstay of the team next
year as he has been during the past two years. He can
always be counted upon to throw himself away in spite of
the fact that he always has to play against men much
larger than himself.
, EARL TAYLOR CCapt.-Electj K
A Seneca, Kan.
"Zach" played on the Seneca High School team three
years. For two years he was captain. He also played on the
Ottawa University team of Ottawa, Kan., one year. In
high school he played center, at Ottawa he played forward
and for us he played a magnificent game at guard. So our
captain for next year is an all-round basket-ball man, and
will make a good leader for the boys. A
George was a team-mate of "Gopher's" on the Warrens-
burg High School team. He played a good, hard, consistent
game and will make a valuable veteran for next year.
RAY F. PARKINS
"Perk" did not go in for the floor game in high school, so
his basket-ball' experience includes only the past two years.
He is fast and a hard fighter and will make a valuable veteran
next year. X

a sure thing when he got loose under the basket.

One of the most gratifying things about the Warrensburg
State Normal to her students, to her faculty, to her patrons
and to her state is that the "Missouri Normal, Has the news-
papers so often call it, ranks very near the top when compared
with all the other normal schools of the United States. This is
true with respect to the attendance, and especially with respect
to the quality of the faculty.
We repeat this very gratifying statement, and to this we
must add another fact of which we are all proud-namely, that
athletics have kept pace with the advance of the school. ln
the past year or two the "Missouri Normalsl' have burst
asunder the bonds that have so circumscribed them in athletics
and have blossomed out into the university class. We have
seen the class of the Valley battle on our courts and fields and
have had reason to be proud of the showing our teams have
made. To prove this we have facts gleaned from the foot-
ball field and basket-ball court which might be given to a
"waiting world," but we refrain for the reason that our purpose
now is to give briefly some .baseball "dope to help dope up
the 1916 Rhetorf'
The schedule of l9l5 was highly successful as may be
shown by mentioning some of the games played. A notable "1'1- '
game was that with the Chinese team from l-lonolulu. The
"Chinks', played many of our leading universities from the
Pacific to the Atlantic. Their class may be judged from the
fact that they won from Chicago l-0. Our class may be judged from the fact that
they won from us 5-3. Other notable games were those with the Osteopaths, who
were considered leaders of schools of college rank in Missouri lest year: those with
Kansas Normal-a school that always has first-class teams-which we wen 5-3 and
7-2g one with Ottawa University which resulted in our favor I-O,
We do not claim that ours was a team of stars but that they knew and played
baseball. The roster of the team follows: Grunn, cg Stagner, pg Menze, pg Cald-
well, pg Parkins, lst basegpRudd, Zd base, Webb, ssg Mcpheeters, 3cl baseg West, lfg
Paul and Lonnie Quick, rf: Stagner and Menze, cf. Of these men Menze, Parkins,
Webb and West are back for the season of I9l6. Dr. Allen has plenty of good ma-
terial from which to evolve a winning team.
The schedule of I9I6 is one to be proud of, containing as it does such names
as the following: Kansas Normal, Kansas Aggies, Osteopaths, Haskell Indians,
and the Yellow Peril Cchinesej.
When we think of the type of baseball this assures us, we may express our senti-
Then here,s to our Normal, the best in the land,
We surely will stand by our baseball band,
For Normal Two of old Mizzoo,
Long live Normal Two. I-,EACI-I,

"Say! when are you going to give me that quarter?"
. The student body has taken more interest
in the "Student" this year than ever before.
This is due to several causes. First, more of
the students have been paying out their cold,
hard money in support of' the paper than usual,
and what we pay for we are interested in.
Then the "Student" has been well worth
taking an interest in for it's own sake. Prof.
Parker, instructor of the class in journalism,
has a "nose for'news" and he is able to transmit

TA Castle of 'life
, Prize Short Story.
It was one of those enticing mornings in May when sky and air and bird and tree
invite one to leave behind everything and live-just live+live in the open-live
in the true sense of the word. Tiny spring flowers peeped from the grass and the
breezes sighed softly in the Huttering leaves. ,
Who could resist the call of a morning like this? Not I. And so I sat beneath
one of the trees on the campus of Normal No. 2. Soon a couple of students here,
three or four there camefout from different buildings and dropped down on the cool,
fresh grass. The greater number of students, however, came and went all intent,
it seemed, upon tasks that left no time for idling. I was glad to be away from them
and wished that such moments as I now enjoyed might last forever.
It was not long, however, until I grew weary of watching this coming and goingg
and just how it happened I do not recall, but I remember that I stretched out my
hand to pick a tiny blue Violet which grew in the shade of the tree. under which I sat.
There was a flutter of blue velvet leaves, and balanced on my hand stood the dain-
tiest creature I ever saw. The silky, fluttering little thing looked at me out of two
blue eyes and waving her wand said, "So you wish to go to the Castle of Life? Well,
come with me." This tiny stranger then took me by the hand and we started on her
journey. I say her journey, for she had given me no choice as to whether I would
go. I knew she must have heard my wish, and I wondered if, like the stranger who
came to Midas, she was to show me the foolishness of it. We had not gone far when
my companion said, Hlsookl there before you is the Castle of Life." And looking
I saw only in dim outline a building from which radiated many paths. I
My fairy from thefirst had amused me by her Hitting here and there and had
calmed -my fears by her pleasant manner, but she never seemed inclined to talk. So
we stood silently looking at the great, gray old building which I could see but dimly.
Presently out from this castle a procession of men and women, boys and girls, dressed
in black caps and gowns came, each choosing and following one of the paths. "Come,"
said the fairy fluttering lightly ahead of me, "We will go with them and I will prove
to you that this is truly the Castle of Life." I followed.
Suddenly I found myself in a neat cottage home. No one seemed to heed my
coming or even to know that I was there. I looked about me in wonder. Near me
seemed to be some one in cap and gown. No, it was only a mother crooning a lullaby
to a half sleeping babe, while three or four youngsters played about her on the floor.
This babe-Hwhat a pretty dimpled little onef' I thot. I was just tempted to reach
out my hand and touch the soft little cheek when the fairy Huttered by me and out
of the room.
Back to the building in dark outline we went, and down another path. This
time we came to a room in which there were some thirty or more children each busy
at some task. A kind-faced lady whom I had especially noted as she passed from the

Castle of Life walked about among them. She gave a helping hand here and a kind
word there. It was plain to me that the influence of these two women was great
and I was thinking would it ever have an end when the fairy regarded me with a half-
amused smile and said, "Come! remember we have just begun our journey. You
must yet see more." c
The next path the fairy chose led to a large room--a room in which there were
rows- and rows of seats, and in all of them were men-men who arose one after another
and talked of things that they thot good for their country. I was just beginning to
realize where I was. Was not this the place where the laws of my own dear state
were being made? And now as I looked at the present speaker I recognized in him
the thotful-faced young man whom I had seen pass out from the Castle of Life. I
was just becoming interested in what he had to say when 'fny tiny companion who
sat perched on the back of a seat lifted her wand, pointed to him and danced merrily
out of the room. I I ..
Where she would lead me next I could not imagine, but it seemed as if the atmos-
phere grew sultry and I tried to find shelter from the heat of the noonday sun. Why,
where could I be! I looked about me. Everywhere there seemed to be flowers and
ferns and mosses and tropical fruits. Yonder under a palm-like tree sat a lady with
a book in her hand. Around her were gathered dark-faced little children, all
listening to a story which she told in a tongue that I could not understand. These
children were different from the children I had knowng I looked at the fairy in be-
wilderment. She laughed a soft, ringing little laugh. "Why, my dear," said she,
"do you not see that village of straw huts in the distance? Can you not imagine
with what joy these children welcome the beautiful lady teacher from the Castle
of Life?" And then I knew. , y
I was interested in the dark-faced, half-clothed little people and gladly would
have stayed longer but my fairy who was fluttering here and there among the Howers
and ferns made a sign for me to follow. I thot of the many paths and I wondered if
this journey would never end. Somehow or other I could never quite keep up with
the fairy, so intent was she that I should see and know of the work of all these people
who went from the Castle of Life.
I was beginning to feel tired when a cool refreshing breeze fanned my cheeks as
we flew along. Before I hardly knew it, I was one of 'many idlers who strolled along
a white, sandy beach. The waves lapped against my feet and the sun shone warm
and bright upon us. My fairy fluttered lightly from the crest of one small wave
to another, but I wandered along looking at the different faces, for none of them
seemed familiar. Why, who could the lady be sitting yonder near that pier? Was
she dressed in cap and gown? At first it seemed so. Now I could see that a crowd
of people were gathered about herg she sat in an invalid's chair and handed to one and
to another a bit of china on which she had worked out some dainty design. I-Ier face
tho pale was ever wreathed with smiles, and a "Thank youu or a cheery word given
to this one and to that one for the coin in exchange for the bit of pottery or china
made me think that this Personmust surely help to make the world more bright.
Indeed, did not the very sands about her seem tinged with gold.

The beauty of the place and the lap, lap of the water invited us to stay, but my
companion was not to be turned from her purpose. She led me on and' on. At
various places I saw doctor, nurse, lawyer, preacher, each in his own world giving
heart and hand to a noble work, until I felt within myself a desire to take a part-
to do something-to find my place in the Castle of Life and work as these people
worked. I think my fairy must have known this for she assumed a more sincere
manner and said, "Let us go back and for the last time I will show you the Castle of
Life as it is really known to all these people who have gone out from it." She lifted
her wand, which now looked like a small torch, and pointed to the gray old building.
A moment I saw itg then a light almost blinded me, and I saw in the distance my own
dear Normal School No. 2 a mass of flames. It was soon gone.
"Now," said the fairy, "would you be one of these people to go out from the
Castle of Life and do good, you must work-work as they have worked, and when
I come again I will show you the castle that is even greater than this one. Then
she left me alone. q I
I felt some sort of loneliness-some sort of fear and just what I should do or
where I should go I did not know. All I remember is that I trudged thru streets
slippery with sleet and snow and I walked in pouring rains. Sometimes as I trudged
along the sun shone brightly and I became aware that there were other walking
with me. Then I seemed to hear a voice calling. It was the fairy, and now at last
I was to see this new Castle of Life where I was to work. "Dear," said the fairy,
and I became conscious of some one shaking me, "why, not asleep I hope?" I awokeg
my eyes fell on the new Normal School No. 2. Yes, a "Castle of Life" if we will
only make it so.

I wander alone over wood and hill
When sunset warms the sky,
When the shadows of evening are gray andchill
And the gleams of daylight die.
I roam where the sun and the ocean seem
One pool of scarlet flame,
And I laugh to myself at the dreams men dream,
Of Love, and Life, and Fame.
For Love is a flower that soon must die,
And Life is a tangled thread,
And Fame but a glow in the western sky,
That glimmers and then is dead.
And why should men sigh for a blossom frail,
Or strive with the tangled skeins?
- And why should they mourn when the sky grows pale,
And the crimson splender wanes?
I wander alone over wood and hill,
When sunset warms the sky.
I follow no law by my wayward will,
And the whim that bids me Hy.
I roam where the sun and the ocean seem
One lake of blood-red fire,
And I laugh to myself at the dreams men dream,
And the things that they desire.

The day is cold and dark and dreary
It snows and the wind is never weary
And the Normal Students still must go
From the Gym to the church in the blinding snow.
And we think with a sigh of old buildings gone '
And wish for the new as we plod along.
Whenhwe reach the church the teachers scold
Till the inside's worse than the outside cold.
And we're almost glad when the hour is o'er
And we hurry back to the Gym once more.
And then when another period's done,
To three hundred Grover is all but fun.

The walks are so slick that we oft fall down
And scatter our notebooks all around.
And when they are gathered from out the snow
And every where that the wind can blow.
It has taken so long that itls just our fate
To get to the class about ten minutes late.

There is a normal in old Nlissou
,Called by many Number Two.
It is a school of lads and lasses
Who go to make up many classes.
Of all the schools in old Missou
There's,none just like Number Two.
In spite of fire, in spite of rain,
Normal Two is just the same.
This Qld Normal Number Two
Has many friends in old Missou.
They are always loyal and always true
To this old Normal Number Two.
There are some who go to Number Two
ln Warrensburg, in old Missou, U
For power, yet some for fame,
But all go out to spread its name.
There's a peculiar thing about Number Two
ln Warrensburg, in old Missou.
The thing is this: it has a charm
And tends to keep one outof harm.
Come one, come all, to old Missou,
And gather around Normal Two,
The sun shines bright and skies are blue -
About this school that is ever true.

Who hears not now glad voices that silent long have been-
Whisperings of tiny leaves, the patt'rings of the rain,
The murm'rings of the soft cool breeze
That brings the scent of flowering woods, the freshness of the seas?
Indeed, whose heart is not atune to songs of every clime?
There's joy in all we see and hear-it's our Commencement time.
To us the sky is cloudless, the flowers are blown more fair,
No rippling brook e'er ran whose laughter could compare
With echoes from our dear old halls
That tell of joy and youthful hearts and care's unheeded call.
Do not the planets whirl in space and hum a springtime rhyme?
Oh, May, so beautiful! so fair! 'Tis our Commencement time.
The apple trees are laden with blooms of matchless white:
Their perfume ne'er was wafted on playful winds more light,
So like the world-light-hearted, gay
Letis pledge to Normal No. 2 our gladness of this day.
Where'er we work, whate'er we do-be it in foreign clime
Let us ever keep the spirit of our Commencement time.
Our 'Dear Olo Hlormal School
Dear Normal School at Warrensburg
Your past is truly great.
You've done your part for years to improve
The people of the state.
Last March your halls went up in Hamesg
Your walls in ruin lay.:
And many hearts then feared that you
With them had passed away.
But Dear Old Normal still you're here
To make our ideals higher,
Altho your halls, we knew so well,
Have perished in the fire.
No more we'll meet in those old halls:
Forever they are gone,
But memories fond to us they'll bring
As long as life runs on.
Tho grand may be your future home,
Far more than that we knew,
Still you to us will be the sameg
Dear Normal Number Two.
Some day our school work will be done
C'Twill come too soon, I fearj
And, Dear 'Old Normal, we must give
To you a parting tear.
But where'ver we success pursue
When our school days are all o'erg
We'll love you, Dear Old Normal, till
We sleep to wake no more.

A TATDQQ fwilb the Gypsies
Early one morning in May, l9l5, my friend and l landed in Warrensburg to
make a tour of the town. We had just stepped from the train, when we were accoste
by several Gypsy women, who pleadingly held forth cups for pennies. After giving
d our way to the Normal School campus and there, much
them a few pennies, we ma e ,
to our surprise, we saw a large band of Gypsies wandering over the grounds. Upon
making inquiries, we learned that it was the day of the Juniors' annual "Gypsy
Tramp." After a little discussion we decided that we would spend our day with the
Gypsies and follow them on their tramp.
We saw them leave the campus in group
fill d 'th G sy women and girls in their dresses of bright yellow, red and green.
were e wi yp
The men were dressed in true Gypsy style. Each girl had a tin cup in her hand, and
they went from store to store begging for pennies. The merchants seemed to be
liberal judging from the amount of coin some of the girls had in their cups.
Some of the more accomplished ones would dance for money. The men, true to
s and start toward town. Soon the streets
real Gypsy life, did not do much of the begging, but were more than willing to accept
what the girls had collected. '
Having canvassed the town, they made their way back to the school. ln front
tood an old covered wagon The Gypsies followed this to Boyles'
of the campus s - .
store, where each was given an ice-cream cone. There they stopped to eat their
cones and have their pictures taken. Following the wagon, they made their way
southward. We tramped on and on with the hot sun shining down upon us. How-
' lk f e soon came to a beautiful place which
ever, we were repaid for our long wa , or w
We learned was Pertle Springs.
B this time it was almost noon, and some of the faculty had arrived to enjoy
a part of the Gypsies lunch. On account of some misfortune the lunch was over
an hour late, but this only made us the more hungry.
After we had finished eating, the Gypsies hurried off for a row upon the lake.
ln a short time, the water was covered with boats. As we sat upon the bank, I won-
m n bright colors as could be seen in the boats at this
dered when l had ever seen so a y
time. Every one seemed to enjoy the afternoon and after eating the remainder of
the lunch, they started to town, tired but happy. When they arrived in Warrensburg,
. . . f f
some of them made their way homeward, but a great many finished their day o un
by going to the picture show.
h ' d ided that our day had not been wasted,

THE MASTIN HHENNERYU
TAS tba 'Tlropbet Saw them as Sopbomores
The following are a few excerpts from a- prophecy that was written when many
of the I9I6 Seniors were Sophomores. It was to have been read at a Sophomore
party, but as the party was never held these prophesies were never read to the waiting
world and it was only by the merest accident that they were rescued from oblivion,
and are hereby presented to you. ' ,
Winifred Mabry-Decided after much pleading on the part of Miss Yeater to
take some more Latin. Got the brain fever from overwork and is now in the'St.
joseph home for the feeble-minded.
Ruth Robertson-l-las achieved her goal and now listens to a "Sermon" every
morning before breakfast. 4
George l-laymaker-Got tired of making hay so he now handles stocks and bonds
and deals in hay futures. H I
Lalla Davis-ls still trying to find out what basket-ball is like and how it is
played. Still has a smile which reaches from ear to ear.
Edna Peters-aBecame a teacher, acquired fame, now has Mrs. Neets' place at
W. S. N., is afraid she'll die because of the worries of the boarding house keepers.
Frances Peters-Became an expert cookg can't persuade any man to try her
cookingg has to cook for girls only, is getting rich in the boarding house business, has
prunes three times daily.
Dwight Roberts-Became a missionary, went to the Philippine Islands, died
with the 'spring fever,' made an A in dying. t
Frances Welsh-Was stricken with lovesickness in her junior year: came near
dying when she was jilted. ls new a confirmed old maid, almost expiresawhen anyone

STATE NORMAL SCHOOL
Stconn Dlsvmcv or Mlssouru
mad L11 6! February 4, 1916
Our recent losses by fire have emphasized the fact that the
vital point of efficiency in any school is found in the relation
between teacher and student. One may think away buildings,
books,equipment-all, in fact, until faculty and students are
reached. Neither of these can be iismissed ani a Normal School
remain. The relation of these factors, therefore, is of very
great importance. Though this relationship is best shown in the
class room it extends beyond. The teacher who is willing may
help the student in manyways outside the daily routine of rec-
itations. How? '
The Committee on Social Welfare presents the Following plan
whereby the Faculty may give additional aid to stuients. The
entire stulent body is to be apportioned among the entire faculty.
The faculty has agreed to this. Each member will receive the
names of about fifteen students, who are free to ask advice on any
-subject that concerns their welfare: Your name is assigned tb
I You are perfectly free to seek advice from any member of the
faculty, but one is chosen as your special advisor. This does
not mean that adiitional surveillance will be exercised over you.
Your independence will not be encroachei upon. But if you wish
individual advice in regard to your classification, your rooming
place, your health, your associates, your future plans, or any
other problems, this member of the faculty hereby expresses a wil-
lingness to offer counsel and assistance.
The value or futility of this plan depends on you and the
members of the faculty as individuals You may never meet the
other members of your group. You may never feel the need of
advice, if not, ion't ask for it. But neither the repression
of timiity nor the pride of self-sufficiency should keep you
from aid if you need it. I believe that some students will
profit by this sane method of assistance and that some mem-
bers of the faculty will be able to render additional service
Very truly yoursl
E. L. Hendricks
THUS WE GOT OUR PA'S AND MA'S. HAVE YOU GOT YOURS?
Lives of Seniors all remind us
We should strive to clo our bestg
And departing leave behind us
Notebooks that will help the rest.
The reason that these lines appear,
Is just because there was a fear,
That without their hidden plot,
This would be an empty spot.

i Bry'e Po'-From the tenor of your remarks we fear you will never make the

F Wil'i'm Le'vy-To win a bashful maiden get a package of I-larrell's Love Oint-
ment advertised elsewhere in the Rhetor, and use according to directions.

except the private sanitarium at Magnolia. This will afford the best treatment with

Je'se H. P'rso'ns-We do not believe you are lazy. You have a very graceful
stride and we are certain that you will be a popular Senior next year.
Miss l..o's I..'ght'ap-From your remarks we fear the young man's intentions
are quite serious. However we do not believe that it.is best to let him call over
twice a week and we suggest that he leave promptly at ten. A young ladyis health
is soon endangered by late hours.

Tnbc 'lecture Course
One of the most enjoyable features of
entertainment offered by the school is the
Annual Lecture Course. This year there were
seven entertainments given at set dates

Faculty members. The talent is obtained

'By this means at a minimum outlay
some of the best artists of the country may

REMNANTS OF THE RHETOR Opera Company, Loredo Taft, The Ben
CIRCUS Greet Players and John Kendrick Bangs.

The aesthetic dancing classes under the direction of Miss Veitch gave several
beautiful dances, accompanied by the Normal School Orchestra, after which the
Maypole was wound for the pleasure of the Queen.

I-IE Warrensburg Normal School spirit overcomes all ob-
stacles. With new buildings and new equipment the school
secures entrance into the North Central Association of Colleges.
This gives a standing equal to the best of colleges. Four years
of first-class college work may be secured in preparation for
teaching. Why look elsewhere? V
The Rl-IETQR is an illustration of the spirit of this
school-service, art and good will combined. Twenty-four
hundred graduates have gone out from this school, but their'
spirit remains an abiding possession of the institution.
