To the Class of 1920:
As Editor-in-Chief of the first Rhetor, I am glad to note that it continues
to speak for the good of the Central Missouri State Teachers College. It
seems that we do not really appreciate the days spent at Warrensburg until
we have reached a point some distance from them. Those of us who have
reached the fifteenth milestone are able, I think, to better appreciate all the
college did for us in everything worth while.
As a member of the Class of 1905, I congratulate you upon your graduation-
I welcome you into the growing ranks of loyal alumni and bespeak for you a
growing appreciation of what C. M. S. T. C. did for you.
james E. Wildish, '05.
To my Latest Fellow-Alumni:
May I congratulate you who have our great school for your Alma Mater?
Wfe older alumni are proud of the position of leadership our school holds.
XVe are proud of you who have upheld its traditions. We hope that this Rhetor
will, in years to come, awaken in you the same memories of a pleasant past,
the same aspirations for a worthy future, that our Rhetors inspire in us.
Belmont Farley, 'l2.
To the Class of 1920:
Blessed is the man or the woman to whom it is given to live in a period of
reconstruction. In the new era which we are entering the need for educational
statesrnen and trained teachers is most urgent. For the 'tasks which the new
democracy imposes you have been selected and prepared. The opportunity
for service of a high order is ripe, the need is great. With what fidelity will
we meet the responsibility which is ours?
W. A. Wilkinson, '07.
To the Class of 1920:
Service is the keyword which every unselfish teacher takes with him from
his Alma Mater. To serve is greater than to be served. May this personal
message to the class of 1920 be an inspiration to work for humanity in all its

To the Class of 1920: 1
Out over the stretch of the decade just ending, the Class of 1910 sends
its greetings to the Class of 1920, and sends also this message:
The inspiration and discipline that we received at Warrensburg fortified
us against the onslaught of this stormy decade and enabled us to endure. Take
out with you a generous portion of the Warrensburg Spirit and you may be
confident that the future holds in its darkest storehouse no crisis that you will
not be able to meet, and year after year will slip by so peacefully and quietly
that ere you know it you will be, greeting the class of a decade hence.
The Class of 1910
By 0. S. Duffendack, '10.
To the Members of the Class of 1920: ,
These pages will be a constant reminder that you are of a great family,
whose purpose it is to bring happiness and peace to all the land.
We welcome you to our landiand we believe your talent will greatly
strengthen our work.
Edith Salmon, Class of 1917.
To the Class of 1920:
I cannot give a better message of inspiration to the out-going class than
the following beautiful stanza from Tennyson's "In Memoriam 1"
"I hold in truth with him who sings
To one clear harp in divers tones
That men may rise on stepping-stones
Of their dead selves to higher things."
James A. Hill, M. D., Class of 1898.
To the Class of 1920:
It is gratifying to know that the old school has recently metamorphosed
into a newer and higher stage of her existence as "Central Missouri State
Teachers' College." I confidently predict for her a continually enlarging field
of usefulness and service. '
With best wishes for the Class of 1920, faculty, and fellow Alumni, I am,
Yours in the interest of her Alma Mater,
H. C. Philippi, 1903.
To the Class of 1920:
Seven of the class of eight members H8755 re-main, after forty-five years,
to extend congratulations to you. Echoes from the past bring beautiful memories
to us of our Alma Mater. We rejoice that you dedicate your young lives to the
ministry of childhood and make your vows of fidelity to the greatest of all

I.ife? You would ask "What is Life?" de
I would that I might tell you,
But 'tis part of Life's sweet mystery
That none may know but one who finds.
You may not find her while you idle here:
You may not find her if you look a year,
If you seek only Life.
Wie find her only when we cease to look,
And when we look we cease to find.
An arduous task? Not so,
An easier task were never found,
Nor yet a task which needs such strength
Of heart, and hand, and will.
What things can best be done by you?
What things in the doing best express
Your own self,
Your better self,
Your self that longs to be?
Wfhat things done will aid your brother,
Be his burden great or small?
You understand? I know you do.
Then go your way, and be content.

HE JUNIOR CLASS is one of the two youngest classes in school. It is
not a year old yet but is growing rapidly. No one expected the baby
class to lead all other classes in school activities and in school spirit, yet
the junior class has the reputation of doing these two things. It was said that
this organization was the "peppiest" one in school. To prove that this was
true, the members of the class were the first to give a program in chapel, for the
entertainment of the students. This program consisted of a class song and a
clever farce, entitled "The Man From Texas." While we listened to this play,
we suddenly realized that some of our classmates were real actors and actresses.
VVe forgot that "Charlie" was only Ed Cvrannert, and began to think he was a
real cowboy from Texas, who was liable to shoot at the audience any moment.
Mr. McCune was an ideal "henpecked" husband and Miss Klapp, a wife who
acted as tho she was capable of doing the "pecking" It seemed surprising
that Mamie McDonald should be so demure, but, after all, things turned out
as she wished and she got what she wanted.
Acting is not the only accomplishment of the Junior class. We have many
members who are leaders in all types of school activity. Marjory Barnett,
the class athlete, is a basket ball and tennis player of great ability. Then, we
have musicians in the class. Misses Gray, Farnsworth and Campbell are ac-
complished musicians and represent the junior class in entertainments given
by the Music Department.
Miss Nelson, as the class cook, always shows her ability by serving on the
refreshment committee for Junior parties. Miss Park is the class stenographer
and we predict for her a career as a private secretary. Miss Suddath has dis-
tinguished herself as a musical composer. ' She composed the class song entitled,
"XVc are the Juniors! Juniors!"
At times we have thought that Mr. Cramer was an orator, but always
when he reaches the middle of his speech, he forgets what he started to say.
XVe believe, therefore, that he will have to content himself with being a school
These are samples of the personnel of the junior class. VVith this beginning,
we expect the class to grow and be a Senior class next year which will be a credit
to the college.

015132 Story uf the bnpbumures
HEY have asked me to write something about the Sophomores and in great
temerity I approach the subject. To do this great class justice, to lay
before the public the wonderful works of this unusual group, is indeed a
task that even a more skillful writer than I would quake under. They told
me that they wanted something clever and I was the only one to do it. I once
thought of asking help from a junior or Senior, but it was only a thought, for
reflection warned me that a write-up from them would be more of a write-down.
So the thing was settled. Either I must do it or it must remain undone.
But I must hasten on. With this slight introduction I not only present
myself as an author, as a Sophomore, but as a fair-minded, impartial judge
and I shall endeavor with equal justness and characteristic lack of egotism to
tell you about the Sophomores.
The summer of 1919 brought a radical change to our college. Up to that
time we, the Sophomores, were known as Seniors, and Seniors we were. l7Vhen
a class was graduated it had engraved invitations, wore caps and gowns, gave
many parties, cut all classes the last week of school-in fact conducted itself
in a manner worthy of any Senior class. But time changed all this. It seems
that there are people in the college who, though you'd never suspect it to look
at them, have had even more college work than we. There are actually people
here who are completing their fourth year and strange to say there is not one
case of brainstorm among the entire number. Of course we can never tell what
they are keeping from us. On the other hand there are several Sophomores
who are not coming back next year because they are suffering even at this
moment from brainfag CHistory of Educationj. These people, who have been
in so long they have almost given up the hope of ever getting out, have banded
themselves together and have announced to the world at large that hereafter
they are the Seniors! Such insufferable conceit! Such unprecedented mal-
treatment of fellow students!
You can readily see the position this left us in. VVe, who last year, were
known as Juniors are now relegated to the Sophomore class. To be sure, we
did not give in without a struggle, but so convincing was the argument of these
d in great
ce, to lay

ant of these
self-styled Seniors that the Faculty acquiesced to their demands for recognition
and finally even we permitted them to be, in name only, Seniors.
This required much explanation on our part to the folks at home and other
unenlightened people, who could not understand why we should one year be
juniors and the next year be Sophomores. Sometimes, without meaning any
deception, we called ourselves Seniors, merely to avoid so much repetition of
facts. Several of us were so indiscreet as-to do this when Seniors were present
and were made to feel our position in such a forcible manner as to inhibit any
further tendency on our part toward this slight inaccuracy of facts.
There is another group of students here in school who call themselves
juniors. However, we will spend no time discussing them other than that
necessary for the onlooker to be able to distinguish them from the rest of the
college students. Their status is recognized neither by the Sophomores, the
Seniors, nor the Faculty. Of course they can impress the Freshmen somewhat,
but what can one expect from the poor, fresh, little Freshmen? The surest
way, when in doubt, to tell at a glance whether a student is a junior or a Sopho-
more is this-the obsequious one is the Junior-always.
Perhaps I should mention also that this is the first time in the history of
the school that the 'fRhetor" has been published by the Sophomore class. It
is indeed to be regretted that the best "Rhetor" ever published Cand put out
by the most brilliant class ever assembled in the collegel should be forced to
announce in its title pages that the staff was elected from the Sophomore class.
Uninformed people, for this reason, are likely at first glance to underrate the
value of our Annual. However, a further perusal will convince the reader,
beyond a doubt, of the merits of our publication and of the unusual ability of
Before bringing this paper to a close, I want to remind the reader once again
of the unqualified fairness of our argument, our serious effort to depict the
Sophomores as they really are, and our' earnest endeavor to place before you
our contemporaries as the school and the Faculty see them. Our motto is,
"Tell the truth when necessary," and you, dear readers, I'm sure, will agree
that I have held strictly to this precept.

NE October day in 1919 there met in Campbell-Irving Hall in
that institution known hereabouts as Central Missouri State
Teachers' College, for the purpose of organization, a class of
students, so young, green, bashful and awkward that it was self-evident
that they were Freshmen. -
There are two classes of wise people in this organization: the
wise and unwise. Fifteen-sixteenths of the Freshmen belong to the
wise class, and so long as this is true it doesn't make much difference
whether the other sixteenth ever learns much or not. However, this
majority includes the wisest of the group that ever cut chapel on
Wednesday, or scraped their feet on the baseboards, or wandered
spooningly down the second floor of the Administration Building, or
mistook their imagination for their memory, or did many of the mis-
demeanors that upper-classmen are prone to attribute to them.
But the reader must not form too harsh an opinion of us for we
are somewhat young and inexperienced, and perhaps by the time we
have reached that "celestial sheepskin age" all our mistakes and
shortcomings will have become a minus quantity. Of course, we
don't exactly enjoy the refrigerating, condescending attitude of our
fellow college mates, the Seniors, but we calmly swear vengeance and
the poor under-classmen become the victims of our wrath. Really,
was there ever such an unsophisticated hopeless bunch as those under-
classmen? Ask the Freshmen and they will answer in chorus-'fNay,
This same Freshmen Class has four very valued maxims which
it thinks worthy of print:
"As a lunchroom sandwich is to a hungry soul, so is a
friend with her references done."
"Spend not thy time in the Library and take not thy
notes in public or it shall be written of thee-f'Thou Grind!"
HAS a small worm that crawleth on the earth, so feeleth
he who cometh late under the voice of Dean Phillips."
"He who hath overcut is not wise, but of him who cutteth
an examination, it shall be said, "Thou Fool!"
Many unique things have been said by and about the Freshmen
Class. Here are some of the "bys."
"All other classmen in this college are like gingerpops.
After they have been uncorked a few minutes they get to be
"Gossip is more catching than the Hu."
"We believe that learning pays a higher per cent interest
than moneyg besides the principal never gets lost."
"The professors in this institution teach us to be honest
and industrious. They tell us that if these two things do
not enable us to make a figure in the world we are only ciphers
and were never intended to be figures."
"Ask the Greeks at the candy kitchen if we are not a
Wise group. We even put on our spectacles when we eat
strawberry sundaes. It makes a pint go as far as a quart."
We have heard the following "abouts" said of us:
"Freshmen always think just what their professors do,
provided the professors think it first."

"The name 'Freshman' will stick to a person doing first
year work as long as a bob tail will to a dog."
"The bashfulness and greenness of a Freshman is often
like- the plating on a spoon-when it wears off it shows the
"The Freshman who aims at perfection will probably
miss the mark, but the one who aims at nothing will hit it
"The two busiest things onearth about nothing are a
Freshman and a june bug."
We are talking seriously when we say that the Freshmen Class of
'19 and '20 has been a studious and progressive group. With Paul
Bryan, more commonly known as "Punk," as president of the class,
and Prof . Parker, as patron, the class has been a wide-awake one. We
have lived up to the tradition that the Freshmen Class is the "pep-
piest" one in schooli We shall not forget our Freshman days, for
who, after all, is happier than a "Freshie?"

SUSPENDED STORY OF THE HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS
Fresh from the eighth grade,
Stale from long mind-dormancy, ilrlzl
Knowing nothing. Knowing too much,
Slowly, consecutively, stutteringly, and we were classified.
In the evening we surveyed our new estateg
We were so youngg
Puzzled, we slept. 542
Much knowledge gained, more lost, we being human-
But we were more than that- ' .gg
We were incipient hatching College Students, iflffl
We belonged to Literary Societies and grew bitter hatred T
Over inter-society contests '
And forgot to pay our Hnes, , . D ,
When we went to the matinee instead of Society meeting. 1
We were full-fledged Basket Ball fans.
Hi there, Shoot!
We were very wise. We knew more than the College Seniors.
Words multifarious, nefarious, gregarious,
Prevarications, fabrications, allegations.
We could fool any teacher'
But we often got I's and F's. Strange!
Some of us were brainy
Digsg grinds, almost, not quite,
We were too young.
Now Glorious Present
We have celebrities in our midst-
Thirty seven of them, that's all of us
Our Future- I

HE AIM of the Young Women's Christian Association of this college is
"the development of Christian character in its members, and the prosecu-
tion of active Christian work, particularly among the young women of the
institution." Ever since the nationalization of the Y. W. C. A. in 1866, students
have played an important part in the organization, and since 1889 the young
women of the Teachers' College at Warrensburg have had an important part
in the work.
This year's work has been especially interesting and helpful. It has been
made so, in part, by a visit from Miss Rebecca Reid, a Student Secretary. Her
zeal and hopefulness were an inspiration to the association. It was with no
little degree of joy that the Association learned that Miss Blanche Best, of the
class of 1916, sailed September 4, 1919, for Japan, to work as a Secretary under
the National Board. These features from the outside have been stimuli to the
immediate work of the Association.
Once a week devotional meetings are held, in which helpful topics are dis-
cussed. A Bible class, conducted by Miss Scott, meets once a week, also.
This class is offered especially for the young women of the institution.
The Missionary Committee, as an aid to itself and the Association as a
whole, has organized a Mission Study Class in which reports are given and round-
table discussions are held on various mission topics. An active Social Commit-
tee has done much to make the year's work pleasant.
This year the Y. W. C. A. sent two delegates to the National Student
Volunteer Convention as Des Moines, Iowa. They brought back excellent,
enthusiastic reports. The Association will send delegates to the Convention at
Estes Park, Colorado, this summer. '

HE Y. M. C. A. has been an active factor in student life this year. The
"Y" work for the year started off with a splendid stag social that revived
the enthusiasm and interest necessary to stage the big membership drive
which was conducted the first two weeks of the fall term. The drive was a
decided successg when it closed there were only a few men in school who were
not "Y" men.
The Y. M. room has been the one place in the college where the men have
felt free to go at their leisure hours. New games and game tables were secured
during the fall term and the "Y" became the chief recreation center for all
men in school. No one will forget the checker games played during the noon
hoursg checker fans became as -numerous as checker players.
The first of january the "Y" room was closed for refinishing. It was
indeed with much regret that the men were shut out of the only place in college
where they felt perfectly at home. "Y" meetings, too, had to be held here and
there, wherever a piano was available. However, the programs were profitable,
and the improvement made in the HY" quarters was fully worth the sacrifice.
Shortly after spring term opened the "Y" was ready to be occupied again.
A big social was held in celebration of the 'fhome coming." New reading tables
were procured and the redecorated room made quite comfortable and attractive
It IS hoped that our college "Y" may be a great agent in promoting the work
of the Y. M. C. A.

Old Pericles, one balmy afternoon,
Feeling a little bored, with naught to do,
Chartered a passage on old Charon's steamer line
And crossed the Styx, the Earth again 'to view.
His old-time haunts he first resolved to see,
But there, alas, they knew not e'en his name.
His language was not spoken any more
And none there was to hear and spread his fame.
The world he roamed, sad and sore at heart,
And nowhere found a word or name to show
That he was still remembered on the earth.
"In soothl" he cried, "this is a bitter blow!"
But then at last he chanced to reach a place,
A Teachers' College in a western town,
And there he heard some students speak his name.
Surprised, o'erjoyed, he heard the welcomed sound.
He listened close to hear of what they spoke,
Which noble deed of his they would recall,
But he was puzzled greatly when he heard:
A'The Pericleans sure can beat 'em alll"
"Who are those Pericleans that they name?
What do they do? What is their work, their goal?"
So cried the poor old man, for much he feared
These Pericleans might not him console.
But when he saw them one and all,
And when he knew their exploits and their aim, .
A smile of joy crept o'er his wearied face.
He said, "I have not lost my ancient fame.
While still within the world there lives
A group which can such high ideals attain,
The world is blessed, culture shall not die,
And Periclcs shall not have lived in vain."

Purpose-To gain literary and forensic culture and to produce leaders

Molto-"Vita Sine Litteris Mors Est."
T THE beginning of the fall term, 1919, varied opinions were
expressed by faculty members and returning students con-
cerning the importance and the condition of the literary societies.
Numerous editorials appeared in "The Student" relative to the work
of the literary societies. Everyone was talking of the "good old days."
With this continued talk and editorials as incentives, all of the so-
cieties began to awaken to the fact that they, as the leading college
organizations, must Hmake good."
As a means of "making good," the inter-society contests-oratori-
cal, debate, declamatory and athletic-have received more attention
than for several years.
There has been more friendly rivalry between the societies than
has been shown for years. Members seem to have risen above the
practices of the past few years-that of dogmatic antagonism.
Much of this friendly inter-society rivalry has been brought
about by the inter-society contests of the past few years. In these
contests it has become evident that alone no society is self-suffi-
The sincere wish of the Athenian Literary Society is that the
co-operative spirit now manifested by the literary societies will grow
Qllamphell literary Society
T WAS Saturday morning and no school. My "roomie" had been up
half an hour, but I was still in bed, hardly awake-just on the borderland, at
times knowing what she was doing and at times knowing nothing. Suddenly
there seemed to be another person in the room. Her face was familiar, yet it
was with difficulty that I recognized a person with whom I had gone to college
some ten years previous. It was none other than Fannie'Norris. She spoke
at once and our conversation drifted 'naturally to old times. She told me that
she was arranging a reunion dinner for the '19 and '20 Campbells, and, of course,
some of the Irvings, since several of the Campbells had found lifemates a very
Suddenly the scene shifted and I found myself sitting at the dinner table
with many old acquaintances. I discovered that the person on my right was
Mrs. Dyer, formerly Miss Swigert. She was still the same "Dere Mable" and
I was so Hustrated by her airy presence that, upon looking to my left, it was
fully a minute before I could see that Dr. Piercy, previously known as "Pansie
of the pep pills," wore a fashionable Prince Albert minister's coat and a standing
I had not realized that women had really taken such equal places with
men until "Cop" Evans was presented to me. E. Lewers, Esq., Prof. Ritta
Park and Rev. Eberts were all revised editions of Campbells. Naturally-
and I had always predicted it-Muriel Turner was a soloist rivalling Tetrazzini,
and Maurine Phillips a successor of Maude Powell. Another musical celebrity
was Iva Hackett, who is playing the latest hits at the E. McCune Picture
Show at Montserrat. Wilma Lipe, the noted lecturer, was preparing to stump
the country in an Every-Year-Leap-Year campaign. Other leaders in this
movement were Mary McClelland, Edith Morris, Mildred Rogers and Frances
Lena Shelley, the toastmistress, read a letter from Ruth Marr Park and
Frances Marr Park, who, with their respective husbands, were unable to leave
their pressing business responsibilities to attend the reunion. The Park brothers
are conducting a prosperous ten-cent store at Centerview.
At the close of this letter the conversation drifted to the good times we
used to have together. "Well, I'm certainly glad we're all here together again,"
"Who do you think you're talking to?" indignantly replied the person
whom I had supposed to be Fannie Norris. I looked at her, surprised, and as
I looked the room and the people seemed to fade away, and Fannie's counte-
nance came more and more to resemble f'Roomie's."
"Get up, I want to make this bed," she said and, glancing around, I found
that I was in my own familiar room.

Zirhing literary Society
T THE first of the fall quarter of 1919 the Irving Literary Society had
fourteen good, strong, active members who carried on well the work of
the society. These members were Edward H. McCune, Reid Stephens,
Emerson Park, Glenn Park, A. Lee Fowler, Herman Henderson, Chester
Robertson, E. E. Morris, Ed Hoffman, O. G. Coons, Garner Noland, George
Caldwell and Leo Deerwester.
One bright morning in autumn, October 19, there appeared from every
side of the campus men wearing skullcaps of old 'gold and black, and neckties
which fairly roared. Who were they? Why "would-be-Irvings" of course.
Don't you know the colors? For one week they wore these caps and ties, and by
the end of the week the old members had decided upon the second degree of
initiation, that the candidates for membership should give the old members
a Hallow'een party.
The date of the party was set for Friday night, October 30th. All Friday
afternoon preparations went on rapidly and by eight o'clock all was ready for
the guests who arrived, arrayed in all conceivable styles of costumes, ghosts,
witches and negroes being most numerous. They were entertained with visions
of corpses, bloody scenes, grinning skeletons and several vocal numbers given
by the most musical of the new members. Cocoa and doughnuts were served.
At ten o'clock guests and hosts went through town in procession giving society
yells, after which they disbanded, each spook returning to his favorite haunts.
The third degree of initiation was merely aweek of suspense-dread of the
unknown on the part of the new members, and enjoyment of their discomfort
on the part of the old members. At the end of the week it was announced in
society that they had become full-fledged Irvings, thus more than doubling the
membership of the society and increasing its working ability. The new mem-
bers were Edward Berry, joseph K. Boltz, Jno H. Haymaker, Joe Childers,
Richard Henderson, Odell Dyer, Clay Anderson, Elbert F. Chapman, Rudolph
Chapman, john Cleveland, Howard Hampton, R. Haydock, J. Paul Morris,
Orlie Reed, Everett Wilson and Clinton Smith.
During the fall quarter the Irvings were glad to welcome back three of their
old members, J. Mack Long, Rolla Williams and Harley Medlock, all live wires
in the society. . .
Under the sponsorship of Dr. W. C. Morris and under the presidencies of
Glenn Park, summer of 1919, Edward H. McCune, fall of 1919, Reid Stephens,
winter of 1919-20, and J. Mack Long, spring of 1920, the society has had a
successful year, full of interest and educational value.

Organized October 24, 1916
Purpose-The primary purpose in Organizing the History Club was to
stimulate research in the local histories Of the communities and counties of this
college district, besides this, it was hoped to create a more general interest in
history on the part Of the student body and to develop the ability to discuss
Owing to war work and the absence of so many History students, the
History Club was not organized in the summer Of 1919. But upon the return
of Old members who had been active in History Club work, the History Club
was reorganized in the fall Of 1919, and was a success from the beginning. The
membership is almost double what it was in 1916-17, and the attendance at the
meetings has been larger than ever before. Many interesting and worth-while
topics have been discussed, as the following list will show:
The Mexican Situation from a Texas Viewpoint.. .
From the Front to Cambridge University ........

HE LIBRARY STAFF claims more than the average amount of pep and
vim. Several delightful staff parties have been held. The first was at
Elizabeth Walters'. Corn popping and candy making were the main
features of the evening. The candy pulling was very amusing. Cramer
distinguished himself as a cook and as an entertainer. 'lTony" pronounced
himself a lover of women by sitting between two with one on his lap. As usual
Glenn's pep resulted in a broken dish.
Next, Miss Cook entertained the "bosses," "rookies" and the "especially
fortunate" guests with a tacky party at her home. Qur costumes were nothing
if not striking, especially Miss Foley's. Bradley and Eubank daringly borrowed
suits without permission, but according to later reports had the score well
settled. CAsk Tex and Cramerj The tacky party was loads of fun, all sort of
entertainment was provided and when -midnight came we were sorry that the

words, is the history of Warrensburg's 1919

Not even Ring Lardner could have written
a humorous sketch of the Warrensburg-Central
game-Warrensburg's first appearance in the
M. I. A. A. since 1914. Many a Warrensburg

And then Coach
Greim decided that
there was every op-

The next line-up
found Moles at quar-

at half against the
Rolla Miners. It was
Warrensburg's Ii r s t

THE CONTINUED STORY-WE WON
HAT Warrensburg is a mecca for basket ball artists is proved by the records
of the teams produced during the last five or six years. And the season
just completed has increased the volume of proof. Under the tutelage of
Coach "Bill" Greim we believe the 1920 squad of basketeers has established
a record. To banish your doubts, gentle reader, just take cognizance of the
tell-tale figures: 19 games won and only 2 lost. Truly a record of which to
be proud. The following tells the story in part:

Immediately after the opening of the colleges and universities of this country
in the fall of 1919, questions began to be asked by various students, "Have you
a course in Boxing? Why doesn't the Athletic Department offer Boxing?"
Some of the men who were asking these questions were men who had been
in the country's service during the recent war, where boxing was one of the most
popular athletic sports. Another surprising thing was the number of students
who had never participated in or seen much boxing, but were demanding it as
a part of their college athletic training. Because of this great popular demand,
practically all of the colleges and universities in the country offered courses in
Boxing, which has been dormant in the Central Missouri State Teachers
College for several years, was revived and a class organized in the winter term.
This class enrolled eighteen members, only tive of whom had ever done any
The purpose of the course was to teach the students the rudiments of
the sport, such as position, defense, offense and movement. Some of the finer
points of the sport were also taught, as well as the conditioning of the boxer.
The class was a decided success. A number of the winter class and many
new candidates have enrolled for the spring class. Boxing is a real worth-
while sport and it is to be hoped that it will remain on the athletic program
of the institution.

HF, activities in Track at Central Missouri State Teachers' Col-
lege for a number of years have been confined to Inter-Society
Track Meets. No regular track team has been put on the field,
the -bulk of the attention being directed toward baseball.
This year, however, the "Big Four"-namely, the Athletic Com-
mittee-decided to do away with baseball as an inter-collegiate sport
and to put a track team in the field to compete in the M. I. A. A. meets.
This decision made, Coach Greim at once proceeded to arrange a
contest to try the mettle of his coming track proteges before "taking
on" the other members of the M. I. A. A. at Cameron on May 20.
The meet arranged is with Kemper Military Academy, at Boonville,
When the call was issued for recruits, the following men responded:
john Simpson, "Drag" Chapman, Dan Fisher, Leo Deerwester, Glenn
Park, Claude Bradley, Martin Boone, "Bill" Langston, "Onyx"
Marshall, james Lay, james Sears, john Haymaker, Edward McCune,
Fred Brady and Richard Glover. Simpson is working on the dashes
and the broad jump. From the showing made in practice we are
sure that he will be a point-getter in both meets. Chapman is another
very promising recruit. He is trying out for the dashes and is also
throwing the weights. Langston, Marshall, Glover, Boone and Brady
are throwing the weights. In the 440 and the half-mile the hopes
of the Teachers rest in Deerwester and Fisher. These two promising
middle distance runners are showing great form. Park and Haymaker
are working on the mile run. Bradley is another promising recruit and
bids fair to gain a place in the short and middle distance runs. Lay
and McCune are working hard on the high jump, while Simpson is
slated to handle the broad jump. Fisher, Lay and Simpson are
rounding into form on the hurdles.
Altho Track is a new sport in the realms of sportdom so far as the
C. M. S. T. C. is concerned, it is predicted that with the coming of
another season Track will command as much attention and popularity
as the other major sports.

ANNIE FRESHMAN was born at Castle Training School in the
early part of September of 1916. In her youth, Fannie was
'a very timid child, and because of her forced association with
rough playmates, Gracie Grades, Teddy Teachers, Clare Classes
and Buster Books, she led a miserable life. However her mother,
Mrs. Training School, declared she was her best child.
As Fannie grew older she lost her bashfulness, and became a gay
young lady, going out in company with the dance and games family.
She was very popular with the young folks for she joined two clubs,
the "Dirty Four" and the "jf K." Soon she married Sam Sophomore
and her first years of married life were spent in helping care for Rhetor,
Jr., the orphan son of Susan, Senior. Jim Geometry, an enemy of
Sam Soph, thru a villainous act caused the separation of the married
The next year Mrs. Sophomore met Mr. johnny junior and they
were married. Billy Basket Ball, the adopted son of Mr. Junior, was
their constant source of joy. Fannie and her husband went in the
highest society, dwelling in Castle T. S. and entertaining Peter Picnic
and Polly Party. Constant quarrels with their neighbors, the Senior
family, caused the death of Mr. Junior, much to the delight of Fannie,
who had fallen in love with Solomon Senior.
As soon as Mr. Junior was several months departed, Mrs. Fannie
and Mr. Solomon were married. Mr. Solomon was a handsome man
and very popular. He held many public offices and with Fannie, that
most dependable creature, they succeeded financially. Their luck
changed when Mr. Rolla Rhetor, an old acquaintance in dire need,
called upon them for money. The Seniors made every effort to help
him and ruined themselves financially. But a very present help in
time of trouble was Mr. Senior Play, a relative, who took the couple
into partnership. Miss Ollie Operetta, a friend of Fannie, also helped
On account of her good life, Mrs. Fannie Senior died young
from graduation. She was buried in C. M. S. T. C. in the place of her
fathers. The ruins of Castle T. S. still stand, marking the worldly dwell-
ing of this noble character. P

Never bother supervisors for excuses, write them for yourselves.
Always chew gum in classes, it lubricates the bearings of the brain.
Cut as many classes as possible, it relieves the teachers of their work.
Throw all waste paper on the Hoor. ' O
Always talk during class periods, it takes up time.
The library must be used for conversation, students wishing to study must
seek an empty class room.
Fling your books in the bookcase, don't take time to stack them.
Sophs must empty the pencil sharpener into the flower box, the shavings
cause the flowers to grow. O

The Sung nf the Ennio
In the great halls of 'llVIuch Knowl
Stand the Juniors, bold and dauntless,
Fearless of the thoughts of others,
Thoughts of envy and of longing.
Ev'n the Seniors wise and mighty
Hearken unto all their speeches,
Entertained them with great honor,
Gave a party, grand and gloriousg
In the little Gym they gave it
In much honor for all the juniors.
They, the juniors of my story,
Have appeared before all mankind
On the stage with much successes,
Gave the play of "The Two Cities,
And the smallest of their maidens,
Clad in overalls and jacket,
Played the part of little Jerry.
Played with great success did Finis
He who played as Jerry's father.
They have done great deeds of wonder,
Given travelogues of battles,
And humanophones so comic
With a professuer from Paris,
Yet have ever met successes,
Gained applause from all their audiences.
They are known in all athletics,
For All-Junior broke the record
In a game that's played with baskets,
Broke the record set by Giltner,
He the greatest of all players.
And their maidens, fair and gentle,
At those games of skill and culture,
Brought forth popcorn for the audience,
Sold it to the eager watchers,
Kept the profits for the Juniors
To be put to many uses.
Thus these Juniors journey onward
To that goal that shines so brightly
Where the following year will lead them,
Then they'll be supremeand mighty,
Be supreme o'er all the classes.

T came to pass in 1920 that there assembled the Sopho-
mores. In their midst stood Geometry, staunch and stern,
in spite of his two and one-half thousand years, and he
opened his mouth and spake earnestly to them:
'fFaithful servants, I havemet with you on this final day
to deliver unto you the Proclamation of Emancipation.
Verily, ye have served me well, tho my yoke was heavy. Ye
have had other masters, but none so hard as I. Ye shall not
go unrewarded. As a parting gift I bestow upon you these
well-earned I's and I-'s. Take them and keep them well.
Faithful is the saying, 'As you' are in Geometry, ye are also
in life.' Beulah, Clara, Hester, Willina, Jerome, Madoris,
Bessie and Beatrice, ye are diligent and faithful in all your
works. Anna, Alice, Evelina and Thelva, be assured that the
meek shall inherit the earth. Take heed, Earl, for wit is not
substantial, while Henry, thou art far too melancholy. Ruth,
Helen and Bess, ye have that look of superior wisdom that will
surely carry you through. Palace, Hazel and Anna May,
your gift of speech is marvelous, while William, Christine and
Alpha Lee, speak little but speak wisely. Blanche, Pauline
and Ethel shall be rewarded for their painstaking work. For
a truth, Cecil, Opal, Ethel and Arlie, a happy disposition,
such as ye have, will carry you one-half of the weary way.
Verily, Erma, Ella, Frances and Dorothy, your distinguished
airs are becoming unto you, but beware, for pride goeth before
a fall. The good natured are blest, Lenore, Tracie, Dora and
Helen, because they bless everyone else. To others I would
give this advice, but my time grows short: My children, be not
offended at the words of an old man, but profit thereby.
Hearken! The bell tolls the sixth hour. Farewell, dear
While he spake he vanished from sight. So passed
Geometry from the lives of the 1920 Sophs.

That Professor Parker, instructor
of the class in Journalism, is Success-
fully transmitting that intangible
quality called a "nose for news," to
his hopeful "cubs," is evidenced by
the live, newsy paper these same
"cubs" have been publishing each
week of the 1919-20 school year.
From the comment of our ex-
changes-and they should be good
judges-we feel that We have a good

feel justly proud.

THE MEN OF THE COLLEGE
VVARNING!! This is a page for the men only. CAll students or readers
not classed as such should at once and henceforth cease to readj In other
words, it is a page for the "he's" of the institution. Cl-Xh, how the interest of
the feminine readers grows.j
By way of introduction, we would have all of you bewhiskered readers
note the small amount of space allotted to us-the he's-in this book. Our
apportionment is governed by the per cent of us in school as compared to the
fairer of God's creative efforts: 1 to 200. Whew!! .
If you doubt our grounds for pleading a bigger allowance of space, just let
your eyes roam upward until your gaze is centered on the ten stalwart sons of
Simon pictured there. But as we look upon them our eyes grow moist, for we
can but feel that they represent a race now almost extinct at C. M. S. T. C.
In fact, we grow sorrowful when we look forward to the year 1925 with one
remaining "he" left. Ah, we see him now. Look at him. Watch him. See
how he acts. Poor fellow. He's overexerted himself at a game of "Pussy-
wants-a-corner."-The rest is left to your thots. Turn over.

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH THE FACULTY? THEY'RE ALL RIGHT!
GBM jrihulnus jfanultp
T'S a well known adage in educational circles ,that a faculty should teach
by example as well as precept. Yet our faculty is so irresponsible, so
frivolous, that the students are even forced, at times, to reprimand the
more serious offenders. The following persons have been most often called
down for frivolity and are most in need of reform.
1. Dr. Phillips is so dazed from his constant consumption of dime novels
that he often completely forgets his classes and doesn't come to school.
2. Miss Kennedy chews gum so noisily her students have difficulty in
hearing her speak. CWe don't object to the gum-only the noisej
3. Mr. Parker shows his frivolity in the sort of hair net he wears. He is
forever adjusting it and this distracts his studious followers.
4. Dr. Scarborough uses so much wax on his mustache that some of it
fthe waxj drops on the floor and the resulting slickness has caused serious
accidents to several students.
5. Dr. Morris is so worn out from posing for his photograph that he has
to come to school in a taxi every day.
6. Mr. Coulter is such a movie fan that he has fairly satiated his students
by reading scenarios to them and acting out before the class the most dramatic
These exceedingly frivolous persons might do well to imitate the more
serious members of the faculty. There are plenty of them and they are bright
and shining examples to the students of serious endeavor and the dignity of the
teaching profession. Some of these are: Mr. Greim, Mr. Morrow, Miss Rut-
ledge, Mr. Foster, Miss Elliot, Mr. Bass and Mr. Gardner.

The Parent Profs. with calm, unruffied mien
And looks of firm and sure authority,
Sit with triumphant brows before awed students,
Dispensing rarest thought and knowledge strange,
In constant stream, to all who will or will not
Take them in full measure.
Here do they harry or inspire the souls of
Helpless mental pensioners till Learning,
Pale and worn, sighs with satiety.
But once within the haunts of fireside privacy
Their power is broken, and their large ideas
And smug-wrought theories yield to dread suspense.
For young barbarians, such as, these above,
With wild entreaty, questions dire, and lambent tears
With bold anathema spontaneous, severe,
With ardent action, born of night and day,
Bear down and crush their lordly spirits.
Oh sweet the reign of intact law at school!
Oh harsh the youthful wreckers of home rule!
It must be all right
The Chaperon is in the midst of it.

A WOMAN THE CAUSE
As we go to press, word comes that one of the prominent and beloved men
of our beautiful little college is dying. Today at noon Mr. Punk Bryan shot
and seriously wounded Mr. Harry McMillan. This sad disaster was caused by
a quarrel between the two men over a woman. However, we mention no
names. I ,

Several students, realizing the superior knowledge and judgment
of the Rhetor Staff, have addressed inquiries of all sorts to us during
the year. Here we shall cast light on these matters of doubt.
I am undecided as to where to go next year. What do you think
of Cottey College at Nevada? V
Answer-We strongly endorse Nevada, but not necessarily Cottey.
The other day in the library a young girl came in and, as there
were no more vacant chairs, she sat down beside me. Wasn't that
fresh of her?
Answer-Decidedlyg when she saw that the only vacant chair
was beside you she 'should have stood up or left the library.
Dear Staff :
When I call up Wilma at meal time I generally hear a peculiar
noise like waves beating against a cliff. What do you suppose it is?
Answer-No doubt it is Cramer eating his soup.
Dear Staff: i
I have been engaged for several months. Yesterday in class I
had no paper and Professor Hudson loaned me two sheets. However,
I am afraid I did wrong in accepting them. What do you think?
' Conscientious Laura.
Answer-Undoubtedly you were indiscreet. Your fiance has every
reason to be jealous if you receive presents from other men.
To Anxious Buell:
Your letter was too personal for publication. If you will send us
a stamped, self-addressed envelope we will advise you about your

. send us
Miss McGuire told me that there was no Santa Claus. Now if
this is so, who else filled my stocking at Christmas?
Worried Little Claud.
Answer-It was extremely thoughtless of Edna to shatter your in-
nocent belief, but what she said is unfortunately true. Doubtless the
other little lads at your rooming house filled your stocking.
Miss Cecil keeps coming up and talking to me in the library. Do
you think that she is trying to Hirt with me?
Answer-It is hard to tell. It might, however, be wisest to leave
the library when you see her coming.
Dear Staff: Q
Professor Hoover has been smiling very sweetly at me in the
halls, and when I went to have my card changed he talked to me for
fully two minutes. Do you think I ought to write and tell mamma?
Answer-Yes, little one, you should run no risks until you are older
and wiser. ' I
Why are the library doors always locked during Chapel Period?
Answer-Miss Foley is afraid that somebody might talk aloud
there when no one is present to hear and rebuke him.
Dear Staff :
I have enrolled for a course with Dr. Scarborough. What prep-
aration would it be best to make?
Answer-It would be best to provide yourself with a permanent
leave of absence, but, failing this, you should get an extra supply of
nerve. You might be able to get a quantity from Fred Brady, who
has a large surplus.
Dear Staff: I
I have often wondered, when walking with a young lady, which
arm I should take. Could you tell me?
Answer-It is customery to take the one nearest you.
