E. BRADFORD I-. 1 Shuclx 5 e bAf QA, jfanultp Our faculty is quite a crowd Never noisy, never loud CExcept Wilcox at cafeteria His monstrous voice and laugh would cheer a Wailing student.D Miss Zimmer's gigglew- How she does it'-that's the riddle. Thru classrooms Miss Loughridge dignifiedly walks, Mrs. Watson-Newell, she' just talks and talks! Mr. Dickson is the ladies' man, And chickens are his hobby. Mr. Young's as busy as he can be, And his clothes are neat and nobby. Miss Odell is one of our very best teachers, At a football game you'll find her on the - bleachers. Miss Peters, to whom all the girls thanks are owing, Knows the seniors have something to do besides sewing, - She says, "Take this assignment and get what you can." You can't say that of Davis, the botany man. Mr. Smith makes you work, but he's pleasant about it, Miss Bullock's an angel-who among us would doubt it? The boys all call Coleman an O. K. Prof., Bradford sometimes does things that make us all laugh Csee joke sectionj. Now the few Faculty members mentioned here Are the ones among us whom we hold most dear, And also the ones who lay down the law. "Less noise and more study"--"Don't stand in this hall." "The class bell has rung, girls"-i"You owe me three passes." "l'm surprised at the number of times you skip classes." And so on and so forth from morn until night, From a faculty member you can't get out of sight. ln looking thru this book you'll note Not much about the faculty we've wrote.

This is a little history book. Not the kind of history that Miss Denny teaches, but the history of our school life in the dear old S. of A. In the fall of 1913, on Monday, the thirteenth day of October, students gathered on the State Farm Campus and after the confusion of registration, 126 of us reported to classes on Wednesday morning. , , We will confess that for a few days some of us felt what is known as homesicknessg however, it vanished in a very short time, as we immediately organized and formed a class. On October 21 we had our first class meeting. Professor Young was appointed to act as our sponsor, and the class officers elected were: Donald Tracy, president 5 Mr. Anderson, vice-president, Miss Wilson, treasurer, and Miss Hyers, secretary. Mr. Anderson was appointed yell leader for the first football game. At the third meeting of the class Mr. Anderson was elected class reporter and Mr. Corby elected representative on the athletic board. Also plans were made for our first party and the social committee, consisting of Misses Kleine, Nelson, Clausen, and Mr. Rivett, was elected. At our fourth meeting the class chose maroon and white for the class colors. Mr. Young designed a pennant which was adopted by the class. The first social function was a barn warming, which originated with our class. The class decided that it should be made an annual affair. It was held November 22 in the Judging Pavilion. On February 24, Ray Cullen was elected class president, to take the place of Donald Tracy who left school. A Our second class party took place in February. The latter part of April the class disorganized and we went to our homes, scattered thruout the state. 42 .Sl7uclx5 ibfl AI CHAPTER II SOPHOMORES "Growing braver and more contented, Enjoying school life as we should, For our bashfulness we've repented And decided that we'd be good." After a seemingly short vacation we again gathered on the campus to take up our second year's work. Many of the old students were unable to return and we numbered sixty-five. The first class meeting was held October 16, for the purpose of electing officers. The elections were as follows: Ray Cullen, president 5 Metta Nelson, vice-president, Arvilla Kleine, secretary 3 Novia Preston, treasurer, Harley Nelson, sergeant-at-armsg and Louis Osbourn to represent the class on the athletic board. The class sweaters were decided upon October 26 and ordered. On October 31 the class gave a reception to the Freshman class, which was well attended by both classes. This was the first reception ever given to the Freshmen by the Sophomores. On November 4 the constitution and by-laws were read and adopted by the class. On November 16 a special class meeting was held for the purpose of electing a committee to represent the class in selecting an alumni pin for the school. The second annual barn warming was held December 12. Altho we were few in number some of our deeds will long be remembered, especially by some of the faculty members. On a bright, sunny morning, shortly after Thanksgiving, our class colors were seen floating proudly in the air, just below the U. S. flag at the top of the flag pole at the north end of the campus. It was not long before our display of colors was discovered by the Juniors. Few went to classes, but either took part in the scrap or watched the excitement which immediately took place. i Several brave boys ventured to climb the pole, but none could reach our flag. Some one pulled on the cable and drew the Hag into the pulley at the very top of the pole, fastening it so that no one could get it down. After about two hours the Juniors, thru awkwardness, broke the cable. Prof. Bradford took action and called all boys who had been engaged in the affair to the assembly room for a special conference. After about two hours of hot discussion it was decided that the Juniors and Sophomores pay for the cable. Concluding that the fun was Worth 87.50, we paid our half. O bln April We again departed for our homes, with the expectation of seeing each other again in cto er. fill Shuchfr CHAPTER III JUNIORS "Boosters and workers' were we, In every thing agoingg Boosters, now don't you see, For we were wiser growing." V In October, 1915, We gathered as "Jolly Juniors" on the campus. We had again lost some of our old members, but many new students joined our ranks to take their places, making the class enrollment 106. Our first class meeting was held October 19, and the class officers were elected as follows: Floyd Rivett, president, Richard Rowe, vice-president, Frances Walter, secretaryg and Walter Nelson, treasurer. ' The second meeting of the Junior class was held October 27. 'Earl Humphries was elected athletic representative and A. B. Worthman sergeant-at-arms. At the third meeting of the class Metta Nelson was elected assistant associate editor and Richard Rowe was elected assistant manager for the 1916 SHUCKS. On January 20, the new school paper was launched. It was entitled f'The Aggie Tattler" and published by the Junior class. The class chose for its motto: "If we rest, we rust" and as class flowers, maroon and white roses. The Junior Prom was held February 12 in the Music Hall. One morning shortly after vacation our class colors mysteriously appeared on the top of the supply tank, and also on the top' of the new standpipe. They waved proudly in the breeze until nearly noon. The next morning the Sophomores pennant was found suspended from the cables across the campus. The Juniors immediately proceeded to take it down. Bob Corby removed it from the cable and dropped it to the crowd below. In the scrimmage which followed one of the Junior boys had the misfortune to get his arm broken. V The Junior basketball team won the inter-class basketball championship by trimming the Seniors to the tune of 9 to 5, and the Freshmen 22 to 12. The Junior class also won the 1916 basketball banner, which was awarded for being the best basketball boosters. On Monday evening, April 17, the class gave a reception in honor of the Seniors and their friends. After commencement we told our classmates good-bye and departed for our homes. 4 4 , Slmchfi - CHAPTER 1V SENIORS "Ready for the last year's run, The race that is hard to beat, The race that we surely won, And the race that was complete." It was with high spirits and ambitions that we took up our last year's Work. The first Senior class meeting was held October 16, 1916, for the election of class officers. H. D. Boyer was elected president, E. T. Winter, vice-president, Hilda Clausen, secretary, David Way, treasurerg Novia Preston, representative on the athletic board 5 Genevieve Morris, member of advisory board for Tattlerg and Metta Nelson, class reporter. The Junior dance was held December 9 in the Music Hall. About thirty-five couples were presen . The usual custom of Senior slouch day was changed, as some of the Faculty stated that in former years the matter had been carried to extremes. The class adopted in its place, "Shirts and Middiesf' All of the girls wore boys' shirts, collars and ties, and the boys wore middies. This Plan was highly approved and commended by the Faculty. S The fourth and last annual barn Warming was held in November. Several members of the other classes tried to make a raid on the "eats" but received a good Hroughing up" instead. The Senior basketball team Won the inter-class basketball championship. The fight was much easier Won than last year. The class also Won the Booster basketball banner again. A special class meeting was held February 21 for all Senior girls. The purpose of the meeting was to decide on the style of graduation dress. A uniform dress was adopted for the occasion. This movement is new and highly approved by good authorities. During April we sluffed for one whole day and who can say we didn't make the most of it? After many other good times which were crowded into the last of the school year, we received our diplomas on April 20, and left for our homes. As time rolls on and our interests roam far away, We will carry with us memories of happy days spent together during the four years of our school life. Now as we Work, or roam, or rest, No matter how long the years may seem, We'll not forget the School We love best, And the class of nineteen-seventeen. ,J 45 4 38 Sl7uclx5 ISN ,sm Glas? ibrupberp "Ciba Zlggie Ijunugraply' Ass't EdIt0I', ISABELL ARMSTRONG Editor-in-Chief, HAZEL MILLER Business Manager, WM.

VERSAW 52 A Shut ltS :SAI :SAI Sveninr lap The play takes place an evening in Richmond during the war of the Rebellion, at a time when the northern forces were entrenched before the city and endeavoring by all possible means to break down the defenses and capture the Confederate capitol. . ' Two brothers, northern spies, enter Richmond. One pretends to be a southern captain, and calls himself Captain Thorne. He comes to General Varney's home trying to get hold of the telegraph lines of the south so that he can send messages to the northern lines. He becomes very much attached to Edith, the general's daughter, and she to him. She hears that he must leave Richmond, so she gets a commission from the President putting Captain Thorne in charge of the southern telegraph lines. Mr. Arrelsford is a suitor of Miss Varney's, and a southerner with a great deal of authority. When he finds Edith is interested in Captain Thorne he tries, and finally succeeds in proving that Captain Thorne is a spy. Old Jonas, a servant at the Varney home, is taken prisoner for carrying a message from the other brother to Captain Thorne. The brother then comes, himself, to give the message to Thorne. He finds they are being watched! and shoots 'himself in order to clear his brother. When Thorne finds he is caught he tells Edith what he is, wanting her to understand everything before he is gone. They are going to shoot him for sending a message unfavorable for the southern army. At the last minute they find he didn't send it, and with the promise of Edith's love, he is taken as a prisoner of war. I Wilfred Varney and Caroline Mitford are the comedy relief. They were engaged, but Caroline breaks the engagement because he doesn't go to the front. He was too young to go, but just when he decides to go anyway, his father sends word that he is to come. Before he gets to the front he is wounded slightly and brought home, but he is Caroline's hero, and the play ends with themiloving each other more than before.

At first it was thought to be a new variety of plant, but closer investigation revealed the fact that it was the new Freshman class, the Class of '18. In order to conform to all traditions and maintain all precedents we retained our verdant hue thruout the year. We cheerfully sacrificed our interests to the upperclassmen whenever occasion demanded Cas in the inter-class basketball gamesj, but in our own sphere we were very active. We carried out successfully several parties, thus becoming acquainted with each other and sowing the seed of future class unity. Among other achievements we dismissed a dairy class with the aid of a bent pin, and were the first Freshman class to give a class play. As Sophomores we began to lose some of our verdure, but only to reveal the buds from which were to spring the blossoms of class accomplishment. Four football A's were awarded members of the Class of '18 in the 1915 season. Our Sophomore banquet was the first of its kind in the school and was only one of the many things which went to show our originality as a class. ' Thus from a humble beginning we have grown and "blossomed as the rose" until now as a Junior class we have a record of which we feel proud. Six football A's went to Juniors. Four basketball A's went to Juniors. A Junior is captain of the basketball team. The Juniors won in the Olympics. More than half the working force of both literary societies is made up of Juniors. In fact there are more 1918 Juniors in the limelight of school activities than of any Junior class in the history of the school. We are the Hrst class in school to adopt a constitution and set of by-laws as Juniors, fthe other classes adopted theirs as Sophomoresb the first class to dare lock an instructor out of the room, the first class to take a hayrack ride Cand incidentally hog-tie an intruding underclassmanl, and we are the last class to back down on anything we start. Truly we are a great class and one which lives up to its motto: "Deeds-not Dreams." eSlju.u:lx5 I - QA SA EVENTS,' 1914-1915 October ll--Entered school-110 students.

A "peppier" or more lively bunch you never saw nor heard. Better chaperones could not be found than Miss Odell and Mrs. Watson. After firewood was gathered and a large bonfire was blazing, the Juniors realized how hungry they really were. The provision barrels were ransacked and each Junior brought forth a half dozen wieners, a dozen pickles, and a cup for coffee. The odor of boiling coffee and the sizzle of the sputtering wieners was a call to the feast. The feast' was well finished when the Junior girls passed baskets of candy. H We must not overlook the poor Sophomore who tried to pass himself as a Junior. Oh, how he failed! He was tied hand and foot and placed under guard of three stalwart sentinels. The class vociferously gave their yells and were taught a new one by Mrs. Watson, the new sponsor. After the president, Alfred Thomsen, had made his usual earnest talk to the class, the fire was extinguished and the mules were headed for home. Altho every one was tired, the enthusiasm did not lag until they were deposited at the entrance of dear old S. of A. JUNIOR DANCE Beauty and good cheer were in evidence on the evening of February 10, 1917, when the Juniors gave their first class dance at the Temple. The class colors, blue and white, and class pennants were used effectively in decorating the room. Forty-five couples danced to the music of Scott's Hve-piece orchestra. The words of praise heard on all sides made the Juniors feel that once again they had done something of which they could be justly proud. I 5 ISA! JOKES Rosengren-"Will you go to the dance with me?"

Baker, the secretary and treasurer, took the chair in the absence of both the president and the vice-president. The meeting was called to order and nomination and election of officers followed. The class agreed on the following: President, Ray Baker: vice-president, Louis Carpenterg secretary, Amanda Sandstromg treasurer, John Pearse: sergeant-at-arms, Reuben Larseng Shucks reporters, Louis' Carpenter and Amanda Sandstromg Tattler reporters, ,Dorothea Boulter and Myron Osborng athletic representative, Louis Carpenter. Miss G. Denny consented to continue to sponsor the class. The class is not as strong in numbers this year as last, but the quality of the class counterbalances the deficiency in numbers. To the school the class has presented a slow, calm exterior. The Niagara River below the Canadian Falls presents a comparatively smooth surface which conceals a tremendously powerful under-current-no human power can resist that mighty stream-rising to the surface far below. Oh, ye Aggies! Watch the Class of 1919. We might start don'ting, we suppose, But still we guess we won'tg For everywhere a fellow goes, He runs against a don't.

At all the dont's its best to smile, The whole pestiferous gang Just keep on doing all the while, And let the dont's go hang. The Sophomores have a quiet way, Altho at times they're blithe and gay 3 Their every move is most entrancing, There's mischief in their silent glancing Even tho they're garbed in Quaker gray. Sbuck5 1 ' ' ISAI SOPHOMORE CHRISTMAS PARTY A rousing Christmas party was held December 16 in rooms 305 and 306. At the door each person was given a slip of paper on which was written the name of one member of the Santa Claus family. After some difliculty each member of the family found his relatives and began planning some way in which each member Cof the family foundj might show his wisdom, wit, or humor. After the program, which was very clever, a few games were played. We then adjourned to room 305 to see what new mystery was there awaiting us. In the middle of the floor was a large Christmas tree, decorated with snowballs and many other bright ornaments: beside the tree stood jolly old Santa. Last, but not least, each one received a Christmas gift and two full stockings of the goodiest homemade candy and popcorn. After romping a while we were contented to say, "Good night," and we did. ATHLETICS In football we, the Sophomores, certainly did shine. Three of our men made the team and won sweaters. Troxel, a burly right guard, was the terror of the opposing team. Dick Cornell, swift left end, beat them all at catching forward passes, and was a hard and sure tackler. Harry Johnson, the speedy left halfback, was one of the best on the team. At the Olympics we did not make much in the races or tug-of-war, but when it came to the big ring fight, we simply swept the other classes off the field, coming out second place with a score of seventy-five to the Juniors ninety, showing the Seniors who's who. During basketball season we had another chance to win glory and we surely did, for three of our men again made A's. Leslie Johnson, altho not quite eflicient for first team, was a speedy man and could hold his own with any of the others. Linn, a new member of the class of whom we are very proud, was a shark at throwing field goals. , Harry Johnson sure has pep. He was the swiftest of any man on the floor. ' Of course we will have to admit we made a poor showing at the inter-class games, but there's a reason.

SOPHOMORE-FRESHMAN RECEPTION One Saturday evening, in November, a reception was given to the Freshmen by the class of 1919. A short program was the first feature of the evening and following this games were played. The Freshmen responded very well and were in for a good time. In room 305 the eats were served, consisting of brick ice cream and wafers. One might think this a very cool reception, but just you ask the Freshmen. Miss K.: "Miss Francis, what is the best way of preserving food?" Miss F.: "Why, to cat it." Miss K.: "Miss Southworth, what two kinds of vertebraes have we?" ' Miss S.: "Crooked and straight." The purpose of our constitution is to force the members of the Sophomore class to obey the following: 1. All talk at once. 2. Set while you yell at the chair. 3. Chew gum until your jaws are tired. 4. Speak before you're spoken to. 5. Settled business should be unsettled at once. 6. Keep on the grass. , 7. Kick down all signs opposing above. 8. Stand in the hall during class hours. 9. Go home for lunch when there's going to be a class meeting. I 10. Fall down stairs. 11. Follow the "Chocolate Path." 12.

They are doing their utmost in every conceivable manner to accomplish the seemingly impossible expectations of their seniors. Their First class meeting was held on October 17, and was Hooded by interested and enthusiastic students. Our capable and very accommodating sponsor, Prof. C. W. Smith, was appointed by Prof. Bradford, thus saving the class much debating. There was then need of other oiiicers and at the next meeting the cream of the class was skimmed to furnish substance to fill the vacancy. The following students were elected: Edd Harris, president: Helena Nelson, vice-president: Her- mina Albers, secretary and treasurer, and Willard Dover, yell leader. 1 81 Owing to the death of a close relative Mr.'Harris was forced to leave us, the departure causing a gloom to fall upon his fellow students. At the next meeting, Harold Vincent was elected to the chair and has proven himself to be a most worthy successor. The next fork in the road was the contest for the bleachers for the football game. The class worked in cooperation, but owing to their unacquaintance and the sudden change from farm life, they were defeated by one of the upper classes. At the inter-class basketball games they won over the Juniors, which shows that they possess both skill and spirit. Recently our unlucky president was called away and once more the chair was left vacant. A meeting was called and the honor of being Freshman president was bestowed upon Arthur Pierce, whom the class looks upon as a most worthy leader.

A woman of our acquaint- ance who had a husband addicted to this habit laid for her liege lord with an axe helve as he tip-toed around the barn and before she said, "thus endeth the reading of the first lesson," he looked as if he had been pawed over by a traction engine. The next morning he arose at four A. M., built the fire, chased the clothes thru the wringer so fast that he set fire to the tub, scrubbed the Hoor and got break- fast with the apologetic and conciliatory air of a man who had dropped his teeth in the consomme at a church supper. There are times when a well-planned swat across the bridge of the nose with the bed slat, as a gentle hint to take his feet off the center table, and get busy about the premises, is effort well spent. We do not advise violence except in cases of extreme provoca- tion and then only with consent of the county attorney. JIST AND JEST OF IT If she saw Ailes in trouble, would Josephine draw Nye? If we were bound to fail, what would be the use of Trine? If Nettie Pierced her foot, would Luther Carrie her or would Madge Wheeler? If the flagpole leans to the northeast, which way does Harold Moline? Florence Guthrie does not like algebra but is very fond of English. To friends and foes of fancy, We know a man whose name is Smith, His other name is Chauncey. One hour in which to study, One hour in which to eat, Two hours to think how tired I am, And twenty hours to sleep. A Senior.

Patrick, lately over, was working in the yards of a railroad. One day, he happened to be in the yard office when the force was out. The telephone rang vigorously several times, and he at last decided that it ought to be answered. He walked over to the in- strument, took down the receiver, and put his mouth up to the transmitter, just as he had seen others do. "Hello," he said. "Hello," answered the voice at the other end of the wire, "Is this 86159?" "Aw gwan," said Pat, "Wha'dyo think Oi am, a boxcar?" "Eavesdropping" exclaimed Adam as his wife tumbled out of the fig tree. "Pat, shure and I see you're shavin' outside," called Mrs. Casey to neighbor Pat, who had taken advantage of 'the warm weather and was shaving in the yard. "Begorra," he replied, "And did ye think Oi was fur lined?" . - "Don't shoot," said Mike, "The gun ain't loaded." "I've got to," replied Pat, "The bird won't wait." Seniors were born for great things, Juniors were born for small, But it is not yet recorded, Why Freshmen were born at all. Why is the study room like a Ford? Because there is a Crank in front and a lot of little Nuts in the rear. Max's Dad: "Why, when I was a boy they used to say that if a person went out auto riding on Sunday that it would make his Grandmother turn over in her gravef' Young Max: "I'll bet my Grandmother is a restless creature." Bobby was saying his prayer in a very low voice. "I can't hear you, dear," his mother whispered. "I wasn't talking to you," replied Bobby firmly. Stoddard: "What is the Faculty?" Burleigh: "It's a board of people to help the Seniors run the school." Streitz was unfortunate enough to get caught in one of the pool room raids lately and was taken before the police magistrate to speak in his behalf. "What is your name," said the magistrate. Streitz began to reply, "St-sss-sss'." "Stop that noise, and tell me your name," said the magistrate impatiently. Streitz continued, "St-ss-ss." "That will do," said the magistrate severely. " Officer, what is the man charged with?" g The policeman immediately responded, "Your Honor, he's charged with soda water." Veteran: "Nearly a generation and a half ago, my head was grazed by a bullet at the battle of Chicka- maugaf' Greatgrandson: "There isn't much grazing there now, is there, Grandpa." l SbuckS H s ISA! what who aah why How They Spent First Act of How'I'heyAcquired FRESHIES Childhood Notoriety Fame Self Estimate As Others See Them Emmett Cashen.. .

The present organ- ization is the outgrowth of the original Company E. Since competitive drill became an annual event in the School she has taken her full share of first prizes. This year the company is made up entirely of men who have had one or more years of drill. This, with the able staff of officers to lead them, should make a very good show- ing in the coming compete. Right face! Left face! We're the boys that set the pace. E! El E! COLORS: Blue and White H. B. P., lst Sergeant COMPANY F Company F was the second company to be organized in the department of Military Science at the S.of A. dating back to 1906. Last year she won first place in inter-company competitive drill, and not stopping there, won both first and second prize cups for individual merit, this leaving her with nothing more to gain. This is the only instance on record when one company took all offered prizes. More promotions were made to com- missioned and non-commissioned ofiicers from this company than from any other. This year with her efiicient oHicers she expects to keep up her standard in competitive drill and also make a good showing in the inter-company gallery meet for both of which the out- look is favorable.

Altho she has never won first place in competitive drill, she has won other honors more highly prized. Com- pany G has furnished more commissioned oflicers for the battalion than any other company. Last year she easily won first place in the inter- company gallery meet, and again this year is well able to hold the honored position. This year, with the efficient work of the officers and the cooperation of the men in ranks, Company G can and must hold her own and announce the victory with: Battalion Attention ! ! !

As a baby Company H has taken high honors, leading the other companies in first competitive drill, having five in all. The first three years after her organization she came out first. This year, with H. Boyer, captain, E. Humphries, lst lieutenant, and W. Rolofson, 2d lieutenant, as oflicers, and a good group of new men, we hope to duplicate Company H's past accom- plishments and take due honors in Compet to the tune of: V Squads Right, Column Right, Company H is out of sight, Yell it out with all your might.

Frankforter, who was then cadet major of the battalion. They were named after Capt. John G. Workizer, who was then the commandant. The "Workizers" are made up of men in the School of Agriculture who have had at least one year's drill, and they are usually officers and non-commissioned officers of the battalion. We have an enro'lment this year of foursquads and with the old time ginger we expect to give our com- petitors the worst drubbing ever heard of. The purpose of this organization is to make drill more perfect and interesting for those who take part. They also hold a competitive drill with a similar company known as the "Pershings" at the city campus. Drill is held once each week and it is very necessary for every man to be out, or he is apt to lose his place in the company. Interest has been very keen this year, owing to the fight for major, and it is known that the membership of the "Workizers" is taken into consideration in the promotions. , With Major A. B. Worthman as our leader, we expect to give the "Pershings" a race they will long remember. , COLORS: Green and Gold W, I F. H. R., lst Sergeant.

No social affair in the history of the School has been so Well attended and highly appreciated as was the Commissioned Of'Hcer's Ball of this year. At 6:30 the guests were ushered to the banquet board which was adorned with daffodils and smilax, displaying the school colors. A row of lighted candles down the center added to the splendor of the banquet table. Toasts were given by Commandant Parker, Principal H. E. Bradford, and Major A. B. Worthman. Lieut. E. E. Humphries was toastmaster. It is regretted very much that the speeches were not printed so that they could be reproduced here. The speaking was followed by a grand march, led by the regimental and national colors. The rest of the evening was given over to dancing. Those who did not dance were entertained at a theatre party.

It was organized by the students onilanuary 9, 1906. It is named in honor of Prof. Davisson, the first principal in the S. of A. The object of the society is to provide entertainment for the students and to give them an opportunity to develop their literary talents. During the past year the society has given a program every other Friday night, alternating with the Ophelian. In the programs we have endeavored to give a Variety of literary advantages, consisting of debates, readings, music, sketches of the lives of people of note, histories of our holidays, plays, dialogs, and pantomimes. , Aside from the regular programs the society organizes a debating team each year to compete with the Ophelians in an inter-society debate. , Our motto: Of the Students, by the students, for the students. 1 I l l05 106 4. 3 F ""' """""""' """ 'u':l11'fffQ1fI" "" "'i""" 'g""' TLT' S5 bllkf ly E'ff.fl'f 'A' " QBpbeIian literary bunietp The organization of this society took place in the school year of 1907-8. The word Ophelian means "Friend- ship." During the past year this society has very successfully lived up to its name: also in a general way it has tried to follow the lines laid out by it, both in literary and social purposes. In this it has keen helped a great deal by Miss Flora Bullock, sponsor of both literary societies ' The advantages which are given to every member in the way of valuable training in public speaking, debating, reading, etc., have been well demonstrated thruout the year. , At the beginning of the school year a joint social meeting was held with the Davisson society,'at which a good program was rendered, followed by a mixer in which everybody took part and had a good time. The Ophelian held open meetings every two weeks on Friday evenings, which were, well attended. The programs were very interesting. . Each year a debating team is chosen to represent the society in an inter-society debate with the Davissons. This has been a custom for seven years. The Ophelians have won live of these debates. l 107 l 108 1 1 1 i 1 l l l 1 1 1 l l l I 1 1 E l 1 l 1 1 l l 1 l 1 1 1 3-'- MRS. C. W. SMITH, Sponsor 1 z ' 31115 la TT' E. CIE. Q. This is the only all-girls' organization in this school. Over one-half of the school girls belong to it. The aim of the organization is to help the girls in their school life, both socially and spiritually. During registration a number of Y. W. C. A. girls assisted the new girls in finding rooming and boarding places. The Saturday after registration the new girls were taken in automobiles to see the different points of interest of the city. This was followed by tea at Governor Morehead's for both old and new girls. Meetings were held in Agriculture Hall every Thursday noon at 12:30 P. M. Programs consisted of helpful talks by men and women interested in the Y. W. C.

Mrs. Smith is especially interested in our work and much credit is due her for the successful year. i The last four years the Y.

The Young Men's Christian Association has been one of the most prominent and prosperous organizations in the School of Agriculture during the past year. It was turned over to the new cabinet March 15, 1916, after which plans were made for getting delegates to go to Estes Park for the summer conference. Thru the efforts of the State Secretary and those who went last year three members were induced to go. When the school opened October 13, 1916, the whole cabinet came back ready to put their shoulders to the wheel and make the organization a success. In the course of the year the following things have been done for the benefit of the student body: The new students were assisted in finding rooming placesg a stag party was given in the new horse barn: a joint Y. M. and Y. W. mixer was given in Ag. Hallg a football banquet was given to show the appreciation of the school for the good work done by the team: a football carnival was given with the aid of the other organizations and classes 'in the school: the Shorthorns were initiated in the Judging Pavilion. During the Hrst semester a Bible study class was conducted, and the second semester Sunday afternoon meetings were held. The organization gave a supper once a month in the cafeteria, and these meetings were well attended and appre- ciated. Interesting speakers were engaged to talk on these occasions. We wish the coming cabinet success during the year 1918. Ill ll2 51? Miss RUTH ODELL, Sponsor Qibe Zlggiz Giattler THE AGGIE TATTLER was introduced into the School of Agriculture last year by a few enthusiastic members of the Class of '17. They decided that such a progressive school as this should be represented in the high school world. The most appropriate means was thru the columns of a real live paper. The paper was also intended to create school interest and to furnish news to the members and alumni. At the beginning of the present school year, the Work of editing the paper was taken up by a staff chosen from the Class of '18. The loyal support of the Faculty and students has enabled this staff to put out a volume which they trust has accomplished in a measure some of the things which they have desired it might. The paper now has a prominent place in the school, and it is the sincere hope of the staff that it may continue to increase in excellence and interest. . ll!! -yup-u munity JK 00 ' .

Beutsnbe Herein Now it so happened that in a seat of learning, known as the State Farm, where flows the Dead Man's Run, there were those who were blessed with the far sight of the Prophets of Old. Now these who dwelt in the land of milk and honey were a goodly lotkstout men and fair maidens----so when they gathered together in the council chambers there were a goodly number. And one spake in this wise----men and brethren is it not mete that we invite these foreign tribes to dwell among us? Let us bid them welcome. Let our young men and maidens learn to speak their tongue that when they come to us they can hear every man in his own tongue. So thus it came to pass that the band became a conclave, known as " Der Deutsche Vereinf' They sent out mighty runners of men of great valor searching the highways and byways to find a leader who would be able to teach them the tongue and customs of the incoming tribe, known as Germans. She must have the knowledge of King Solomon. She must have the grace of Pavlowa that she may teach the dances. She must have the voice of Schumann-Heink that she may teach their songs and music. And they traveled far and wide until they came to the house of one known as Denny whose daughter had a countenance like unto the rising sun, whose feet were swift to do and light to dance, and whose knowledge made Solomon look like thirty centsg she was comely to look upon and always a lady. And much has been the success and profit of her teaching. ll "T AIQI1I1fIfQ.I1Q"LL...l'fff"'"lIl,..flI.lf,fLL.Q.fQ-.fI, 'A "" 111.1 is i'y1l.,1 it be The bcanhinahian Qtluh Ever since the beginning of history the Scandinavian people have been known for their bold and daring habits: there never was a task so hard or daring that the people of Scandinavia would think it unconquerable. They have come to this country and made it their home to represent the descendants who centuries ago explored the northern seas. It would be found that in the districts of our country where there are Scandinavians, there is a community of peace and happinessg this will be found true in Nebraska. V The School of Agriculture has a good representation of this bold and daring blood, and inlthem can be seen the characteristics that they had centuries ago. They are always leaders in 'school activities and in the classroom the equal of any. The organization is not an old one and was organized by the class of the term of 1914-153 since that time they have been progressing very rapidly. The club consists of Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians. The plan is to have meetings every half semester, or four meetings a term, to have programs consisting of readings, songs and sketches of Scandinavian life, some of which are to be in the Scandinavian languages. Our motto: "Wit, Wisdomhand Fun." ' K 116 ,, r be Q91fciJest1fa e The S. of A. orchestra has been one of the big features of the school this year. With a leader by the name of Horn, one would expect nothing else but a success. Some one would probably "blow" him up if he didn't produce some good music. As it is we are sure this "Horn" ought to be tooted far and wide, for without him the orchestra would never have reached its high place of excellency. Two old and nine new members were turned over to his tender mercies at the beginning of the year. With this material be has turned out the finished product of all stars whom you have had the pleasure of listening to so many times this year. Maybe the reason for the phenomenal success of the orchestra was the lack of feminine aspirationists. This is one field of student activities which the girls have yet to conquer. Until they wake up you can expect good music. SAVE THE ORCHESTRA BOYS ! ! The violin section, consisting of George Pearson, Emmet Cashen, Clements Alger, Willard Dover, and Walter Troxel, was very ably filled and many of the sweet sounds-ff-and some of the discords --can be attributed to their genius. Emil Osterloh and Meade held down the cornet parts with ease. Carl Ruegg was the only elarinetist but he made up for a thousand. The bass section, with Ernest Bartz and Wm. Wiedeberg at slide trombones, did justice to both themselves and orchestra. The orchestra appeared before the school and public several times, the first time being at the Xmas Convocation. The next was the week of Organized Agriculture, when they played for several of the meetings, and also the State Horticultural Society. They were on the Historical Pageant program, and also played for the Senior Class Play, as has been the custom for ears. The pleasure of sucli an organization in our school cannot be over-estimated. lt is one of the things that bring the students together and helps to manufacture school spirit and "pep," To music lovers it has been a real treat, or at least we hope so. Everybody boost for an even better orchestra next year. 'I7 TH lc GLEN CLUB IIB , 1 'fwlmr it Ulibe Glas Qtluh The School of Agriculture Glee Club was reorganized at the beginning of the school year, with Mr. Chas. Lively as its leader. About thirty-five fellows tried out and Mr. Lively selected eighteen. Practice began at once. At a business meeting, held shortly after the members of the club were selected, the following officers were elected: President ..................... . ,.,... W. A. NELSON Vice-President. . . .... FRANK EVANS Secretary .... . . .PAUL PATMORE Treasurer ..... ......,............. H ASKLE BOYI-JR We practiced every Monday and Wednesday evening. We also made some rules. A fine was placed upon each member who did not appear at every practice without a good and sudicient reason for his absence. We were soon able to take part in a Convocation program and later able to produce a full Convocation program of our own, which seemed to be fully enjoyed by all of the students and'Faculty members who listened to us. During the week of organized Agriculture we had the pleasure of being on the program for severalof the meetings, one of which was a banquet given at the Commercial Club for the County Fair representatives. You may trust us for being there on time and singing our very best, for we never were known to be bashful when there was a good feed before us. I The good times we had together and the new songs that we learned from time to time served to make a true and lasting friendship for all. We shall never forget those days when we could all meet together with such laughter and joy. l We fully appreciated and wish we could thank our leader enough for his patient work and valuable time rendered for our benefit. We also owe a great deal to Mr. Havlicek, who was our assistant at the piano. Their names will never escape our fond memories of "Old Glee Club Days." A Member.

'SA' Jfunthall THE SEASON "Where did they all come from?" "Who is that big tall fellow there?" "Look at that guy run-that's Ossie, ain't it?" "They ought to win some games this year, eh?" These were a few of the remarks heard on the athletic during the first few nights of practice, and the answers to the questions were, "Where did they all come from? Why didn't you know Mr. Bradford wrote to all old men to be sure and be back and be here early." "That tall fellow, why that's a new guy, Harrington, and you sure must be a Freshie if you don't know Osbourn, and we sure are going to win some games this year and we sure will have to yell some. Believe me!" It had been the earnest wish of football enthusiasts that this year would bring forth a wonderful team, and lo, their prayers were answered! This statement needs no written proof, since we have all been eye witnesses and know our team made a wonderful showing in every game. There are many reasons for the good record and it is difficult to say which is the greatest, but here are a few that need to be mentioned: First, we must mention the wonderful training received at the hands of Coach Lantz and'his assistant, "Broddy" Proctor. Second, the superb material with which the coach had to work: and, last, the man who led the team, Captain Osbourn. l THE GAMES The season, as a whole, has been a record of which every loyal Aggie is justly proud, and this book would not be complete without a more or less detailed record of each game. Thus, with pleasure, we erect the follow- ing verbal monument to our living warriors. With our first game only a week ofl, there was no time to spare for training, as the team had to be ready to meet University Place. As luck would have it, it rained the day wc were to play and the game was post- poned for a week. . Fairbury Game On October 27, Fairbury invaded our territory and met with defeat by the powerful Aggie squad. This game started off with a rush, the Aggies putting the ball in Fairbury's territory. Fairbury failed to find themselves and as a result failed at line plunges and punts. They were penalized several times during this quarter. The next quarter started and Osbourn got the ball and ran half the length of the field for a touchdown. Wheeler kicked goal. During the second half the Aggies' powerful machine kept the ball in Fairbury's territory almost all of the time. Our old reliable Osbourn received the ball and over he went for another touchdown. Wheeler put his toe to the ball and over it went.' With just a few minutes left to play our speedy little end, Dick Cornell, received a pass from Osbourn and made another touchdown. The whistle blew and the Aggies were victorious by a score of 33 to 0. University Place Game The following week came University Place, which had again been postponed on account of the weather. This game was one that had been hanging fire for sometime and both teams were anxious for the whistle to blow. Wheeler kicked off for the Aggies. He kept right on going with his line plunges until suddenly University Place staged' some fancy plays and then the real scrap began. Osbourn caught one of their forward passes and ran over a hundred yards for our touchdown. Wheeler's never failing toe put the ball over and the score stood 7 to 0 in the Aggies' favor. The Aggies were penalized and with good work on University Place's side Cummings made their touch- down but failed to kick goal. The second half started and University Place staged some good gains and worked the pass to good advantage. When the Aggies were in possession of the ball they made some good gains and placed them in University Place territory. During the last quarter the Aggies braced up and made some SlauclxS K excellent gains and they were in several yards of goal when the final whistle blew. Final score: 7 to 6, Aggies' favor. Nebraska City Game On the week of November 7, Nebraska City entered our campus, confident of victory. They had won four games previous to our game, but as usual the Aggies were determined never to lose a game on their grounds, so they succeeded in downing Nebraska City. As usual Wheeler kicked off and placed the ball in Nebraska City's territory. The Aggies recovered the ball and Wheeler made the first touchdown but failed to kick goal. The quarter was made up of mostly line plunges on both sides and the quarter ended with the Aggies several yards from goal. Nebraska City started the second half with a penalty and they seemed to be unable to gain by end runs or line smashes. Nebraska City recovered a fumble and they staged open plays and landed in the Aggies' territory. The Aggies were in the center of the field using their line plunges to great advantage when they fumbled and lost the ball. Osbourn finally caught one of Nebraska City's passes and ran half the field. The Aggies failed at line plunges, but they staged successful end runs. Smith of Nebraska City caught one of the Aggies' passes and seeing an opened field before him he made Nebraska City's first and only touchdown. The Aggies came back with line plunges and Phillips, our slippery little quarter, slipped thru and added another touchdown to our credit. Wheeler failed to kick goal. Osbourn rushed thru for another touchdown and goal kick but failed. The game ended within three yards of the Aggies' goal with Nebraska City in possession of the ball. Final score: Aggies 18, Nebraska City 7. Beatrice Game On November 10 the Aggies and most of the school made a trip to Beatrice to battle with one of the strongest teams in the state. The Aggies went down in the morning and the school arrived just as the team was entering the gridiron. The Aggies played successfully and continually tore Beatrice to pieces. Wheeler caught one of Beatrice's passes and ran forty yards for our touchdown. This made Beatrice look up and they soon found out that the Aggies were no green bunch. Finally Beatrice by successful line plunges placed their first touchdown and the score stood 7 to 7. The teams played very good football and finally in the last two minutes of play Beatrice placed a successful place kick over and the score stood 10 to 7 in favor of Beatrice. Tecumseh Game As our season was drawing to a close Tecumseh was yet to be met. The Tecumseh boys look like real football men, but their looks had nothing to do with our deadly machine. The game started with Phillips kicking off and Tecumseh punted right back. The Aggies lost on a fumble but recovered the ball on one of Tecumseh's passes. Finally the Aggies staged some successful line plunges and made many good gains. Tecumseh by means of fancy plays carried the ball into the Aggies' territory but lost the ball on downs. During a line plunge the Aggies fumbled but regained the ball and it stopped in about ten yards from goal. Osbourn put forth all he had and made a touchdown. Wheeler failed to kick goal. The Tecumseh boys strengthened and the Aggies failed at line plunges, but Osbourn made a place kick. The half ended with one of Osbourn's long end runs. Tecumseh kicked off and Osbourn played his long runs and he soon placed the ball in Tecumseh territory. Osbourn made his second place kick. Then both teams strengthened and they remained in the center of the field for some time. Osbourn broke the spell and he let loose with a long end run. Tecumseh gained possession of the ball and they showed many fancy plays but failed to make the required gains. The Aggies regained the ball and Osbourn took it thru for another touchdown. Wheeler kicked goal. Again the Aggies came back with line smashes and end runs and this placed them in the Tecumseh ground. Higgins carried the ball to within five yards of goal and Wheeler fumbled when Phillips gained the ball for a touchdown. Wheeler kicked goal. Final score: Aggies 26, Tecumseh 0. SA .U Sl7uchS A Norfolk Game Finally the long looked for trip to Norfolk was at hand. Our band of thirty pieces and the football men were all on deck when the train left at 7:30 for Norfolk. The trip was long but not tiresome, as the band kept things moving. At Fremont the band displayed what it knew and all of Fremont knew the Aggies were in town. Our train left soon, so we no more than got settled when orders were given for the team to get off at South Norfolk and ride up to Norfolk in cars. The band went up on the train. A small feed was given to football men and they were immediately rushed to the dressing quarters. All were dressed and carried to the field in autos. Norfolk started the game by kicking to the Aggies. The Aggies went down the field and Phillips made our first touchdown. This surprised Norfolk and they strengthened a little but Osbourn, after being tackled three times, made the second touchdown. After this Norfolk put forth still more energy and tried to hold, but Troxel, opening up holes for Wheeler to run, sure surprised the Norfolk boys. After the Aggies made line plunges to a great advantage Norfolk braced and took the ball fi om one end of the field to the other, caging two touchdowns but failing to kick goal. The last quarter was evenly matched and the ball was in no one's territory when the final whistle blew. Final score: Aggies 19, Norfolk 12. 1 134 This was not all, for in the evening a reception was given for the boys and everyone enjoyed himself. Every football man had a date and what's more it took till Sunday noon to rid the town of Aggie players. Aurora Game Our last game of the year was played on Thanks- giving Day with Aurora. The Aggies went up there a little too confident and as a result left the town with bacon split. The Aggies could not find their old style of playing and as a result the Aurora boys played end runs and line smashes to a great advantage. The Aggies seeing 7 to 0 staring at them, braced and made a touchdown. Phillips carried the ball over and Osbourn kicked goal. A general fight was on from then on and the ball shifted from side to side and when the whistle blew it was in the center of the field. Final score, 7 to 7.

HILTNER, Coach RALPH R0o'r, Captain Ralph Root, right forward and captain of the team. This was Root's second and last year on the Aggie team. He plays a good game all the time, and stars a good share of the time. Root is enthusiastic about all athletics and has done a great deal for the School along that line. His hobby, however, is basketball. J, -b l . J ' L, A L Harry Johnson CCapt-elect and One of the Best Guards in Lincolnj Jonnie played a fast and furious game and always had fight until the whistle blew. Jonnie, with your nerve and fight you should develop a strong team next year. Go to it, the School is for you. ..,li..l-lx Linn COur Little Guard from Kimabll Countyj Linn was our speedy little guard and could be depended upon to stop one man and sometimes more. Linn, if they raise basketball men out in your county, bring some back to don an Aggie uniform. Harrington COur Little Center from C0l0rad0D Harrington was only 6 feet 4 inches tall and could put the ball where no one else could reach it. He played a good defensive game all the time. Shooting baskets with two or three men on his back was his hobby. - Hoagland CThe "Dark Horse" of the Teamj "Hoagie" was not recognized by the coaches as a player until almost too late. He played a good game at Uni. Place and kept up the good work until the end of the season. Harley Nelson C"Nellie," the Old Reliable Centerj "Nellie" could hold the ball and his passes were sure. Nellie has not a long list of goals to his credit, but he kept his opponents on the same level. Nellie always played a good defensive game. L. Johnson QThe Little Shark' from Lyonsj This is the last of the Johnsons, but not least. -1 j E. Johnson CThe Cowpuncher from Sidneyj Earl could play basketball when he wanted to and Jmmie played a Stellar game at SO.

HMI I., '1- Basketball Basketball this year was very successful considering the many things that handicapped the team. In the first place, coaches were changed early in the season: second, only two old men were out making about five new men coming in, and we all know how hard it is to work with new people, and have perfect work with only two nights a week for practice. The success of the season was due to coaches Hiltner and Rutherford, who seemed never to tire of pushing the Aggies along. They were ably assisted in this work by Ralph Root, captain of the team. We are sorry to hear that he will not be back next year, but we are mighty glad to hear that a good man has been chosen to fill his place, Harry Johnson '19. Let's hope that all good basketball material will be back next year to make 1918 a banner year-and Aggies, let's be ready to give our support. LOOKING BACK ON THE SEASON OF 1917 Crete Game ' The Aggies started off the season by taking on the fast Crete five. Crete invaded our territory and they -had a hard time carrying away the honors, as the Aggies were almost sure to win. The first half ended in the Aggies' favor by a three point margin. The second half showed a spurt by the fast Crete five and Dredla, the Crete boys' star forward, shot baskets at will. This game was fast and free from roughness all the way thru. Beatrice Game On January 18, our old friend Beatrice came sailing into town, expecting an easy victory but to their dis- appointment the Aggies took their measure by a lop- sided score of 30 to 9. Beatrice played a fine game in team work, but when it came to shooting baskets they had nothing on the Aggies. E. Johnson easily was the star for the Aggies. Mil Nebraska City Game The next games were played away from home and as usual when away from home the team lost. Nebraska City was the first team to be met. The Aggies landed strong on Nebraska City, but were unable to hold on that account and Nebraska City won on fouls alone. The game showed roughness and hard fighting all the way thru. The final whistle showed the Aggies on the short end of the rope with a score 14 to 12. H. Johnson and Linn played a stellar guarding game for the Aggies. South Omaha Game On the following day the Aggies piled out of bed and took a train for Omaha. They engaged rooms at the Keen Hotel, and after lunch the bunch were busily engaged looking at Omaha's tall buildings. When time came the Aggies boarded a street car and invaded South Omaha. As the Aggies were almost played out they endeavored to play a slow game. The first half was slow and ragged, but the last .half was fast and furious. The Aggies piled up their score to 18 while South Omaha had 26. The game was the roughest of the season and only four fouls were called all thru the game. L. Johnson played a fine guarding game for the Aggies. University Place Game After a week of strenuous basketball the Aggies tried to stop the Uni. boys, but their team work and close guarding were almost perfect. The Aggies played a slow game as a result of four previous games the week before. The score stood l6 to 5 in University Place's favor. Inter-Class Games The Senior class team showed their talent by defeat- ing the Sophomores and Freshmen. The games were attended by a good sized crowd from each class, and class yells and spirit were ata high pitch. The Shorthorns were out in good style and after the Seniors had played two games previous the Shorthorn team took them into camp by a large score. University Place at University Place After the defeat by University Place once the Aggies were determined to win, so into University Place they went accompanied by a large delegation of rooters. The game started and the Aggies were in the lead thruout the battle. One time during the game the Uni. boys tied our score but three baskets followed in quick succession and the Aggies kept well out of danger. The final whistle showed the score 26 to 18. This was the first time in five years that the Aggies won a game away from home. Lincoln Game ' The first time in history the Aggies picked up nerve and met the Lincoln five. The first half was slow and Lincoln played all the game. The second half stood to show what the Aggies could do. By close guarding and good basket shooting the Aggies climbed up and set the score 27 to 16. -A crowd that was hardly ever equalled at varsity games was out to witness this battle. Both of the school bands were out and the spirit that makes a school was sure shown there. Fairbury High School Fairbury seems to like to take a drubbing from the Aggies, for they were beaten in football and suffered a great loss by the Aggies basketball team. The Aggies were never in danger and the score stood 30 to 0 in their favor. Harrington and H. Johnson played a stellar game of basketball. Norfolk Game The Norfolk boys defeated University Place the Friday before our game and they thought that the Aggies' game would be easy. They sure thought differently after a few minutes of play. The Aggies started scoring and kept the lead for a while. Then Norfolk spurted and led the Aggies by one basket. The lead was not kept long, as the Aggies soon overcame it and kept it till the final whistle blew. The final score stood 20 to 16. The Aggie team as a whole played a splendid game of ball.

ARMSTRONG I117 -H lliillklii ' li Zllibe winter Clinurse One hundred-sixty "sons of the soil" and sons of "sons of the soil" who were eager to absorb all the scientific methods of agriculture possible in six weeks, appeared on the University State Farm Campus January 2. One woman also registered for the course. Thevmen were of all ages, from sixteen to the age indefinite. The first day, registration, finding room and board, and sightseeing took all our time. Several Shorthorns found it difficult to find the place to register, but very few had any difficulty in discovering the treasurer's office. The Shorthorns had the distinction of being the first students to have classes in the new Dairy Industry building. Here Prof. Filley gave his series of lectures on Farm Management. He taught us the proper methods of putting the farm on a business basisg how to compute the cost of productiong what to debit and credit the farmg and how to manage the numerous marketing problems. His lectures made one realize that farming is a real business proposition. Numerous farm surveys wherein the business side of farming had been thoroly investigated made Prof. Filley especially competent to give this series of lectures. Prof. Hopt was our instructor in Crops. Here we found a man of the "rapid-fire" nature who never lost any time in introductory remarks, a man who always took up each lecture exactly where he left off with the preceding one. Prof. Hopt knew of the varied climatic and soil conditions of Nebraska in their relation to crops. He presented his subjects in a way that appealed to the practical farmer. The open discussion of the subject by the students should be especially mentioned. Interesting and valuable points were thus brought out. It was always a pleasure to attend this class. Q Prof. Young gave us a series of lectures on Soil, which dealt with the everyday problems regarding the relation of soil to crop production. He gave a brief survey of the different soils of Nebraska, the subject of soil moisture, soil erosion, drainage and irrigation, and such problems. Prof. Bruner came before us with many apologies as to the sanity C23 of the "Bug-man." After a few lectures however, we realized that the "Bug-men " were rendering the human race, and especially the farmers, a service for which they should be given higher recognition . He gave us many interesting and valuable facts about the life and the control of insects. We all wished that we could have heard more of his lectures. Prof. Wilcox seemed to be cut for a chautauqua rather than a class room lecturer. His lectures on Plant Pathology seemed chiefiy to be based on a plant known as the "Nebraska Gink." This plant seems to be afiiicted with a disease of not being able to distinguish between common things and higher artsg of not knowing how to properly spend his moneyg and of always wanting "something for nothing." For example, he mentioned a case of a Gink who wrote in for information that would require ten dollars worth of work to obtain and enclosed a stamped envelope for a reply, After going over the shortcomings of the "Nebraska Gink" the professor showed us several lantern slides of other plants, their diseases, and then gave us literature on the methods of controlling these diseases. On the whole his lectures were very interesting f?J and rather restful, as they were quite a change from our daily work, ms 'A lffllllx li is Prof. Dixon spoke chiefly on Chickens, basing his lectures on the utility side of the subject. He covered each point clearly and thoroly. If any came from his lectures without getting a touch of "chicken fever" they must. have slept thru the entire period. Some misunderstood him, however, when he invited us to go and sec thc chickens. A number of the boys went down town. - Fruit Growing, Vegetable Growing, Ornamentation of the Home Grounds, and Forestry were covered by Professors Howard, Hood, and Nicolet. They covered their subject by lectures and the use of lantern slides, bringing out some very interesting points. . The Dairy work opened the eyes of a good many students, as the profit, pleasure and possibility of this industry in Nebraska is greater than one imagines. The work was covered by lectures, demonstrations and trips thru the dairy barn. We were convinced that this industry is going to make a rapid growth in this state. Doctor Gain took up the subject of Animal Pathology. While he could not cover much of this subject during., the six weeks, he discussed the cause and prevention of digestive troubles-the teeth, contagious diseases, and emerg- ency surgery. The subject of Animal Husbandry covered ten hours per week of judging and four hours of the care, management, and feeding of live stock. In the judging work the students were given the chance to place the animals and then the instructor led an open discussion. More knowledge was obtained in this class than in any subject we were taught. Assistant Professor Warner held a meat-cutting demonstration during one period. The subject of Agricultural Engineering was conducted by Prof. Baer and Mr. Reynolds. They lectured on the subjects of Woodwork, Use of Tools, and Blacksmithing. Prof. Gramlich had charge of the subject of Feeding. All questions were thoroly discussed: Much interest was shown in this class. Q ' Taking the course thruout very little can be said in the way of unfavorable criticism. All of the lectures were clear and to the point,-covering only that which interested the practical farmer. The instructors were always willing to answer any questions we might ask at any time. All of the regular students tried to make us feel at home. SHORTHORN SHORT-COMINGS We first realized we were in the "limelight" when a number of Senior girls invaded our class room, armed with basketball Senior tickets. We had not considered basketball as yet, but could not withstand the attack of the ambitious and willing Seniors. We duly purchased the tickets. A One student became so enthusiastic over Agriculture Engineering that he asked the Principal if he might take a course in "forgery." The student escaped. 149 Prof. Gain -"Boys, on Saturday afternoon we will take up rope splicing and knots, etc. Don't make any dates for that time." V Student-"Can't we bring our girls up here?" Prof.-"Sure thing-they're always interested in the right kind of a knot." Prof. Hopt-"Why is northwestern Nebraska warmer than northeastern Nebraska?" Baboon-"Because it is closer to the equator." Prof. Bruner-"Now how many know how a chinch bug tastes?" No response. "Well it tastes just like a bedbug, so now I suppose you all know how it tastes." "Millionaire", with his fur cap, doesn't seem to appreciate the honor bestowed upon him by the frequent applauding of his worthy colleagues. Rowdyism and Agriculture are not synonymous according to Prof. Wilcox. However, the statement was not made until the last week of the term. The Shorthorns adopted the bandana handkerchief as the flag most becoming to the "sons of the soil." Somebody must have inoculated the Shorthorns with college spirit, as they appeared in class room with handker- chiefs around their necks and an unintelligible yell that ended "Yea Bo! Yea Bo! Yea Bo!" l No. Those Shorthorns who are yelling aren't doing it under the impression that they're driving cattle. They're only trying to imitate the cadets answering the roll call. W9'll admit it WHS Quite 2 t9mPti1ti0N to keep from scratching our heads when Prof. Bruner was telling about lice. mo SHORT COURSE BASKETBALL TEAM This is the first year the Winter Course has picked out a basketball team from among its' members. The team played in the inter-class games and won from the Seniors, who had previously defeated the other classes of the school. It all goes to show what pep and practice can do. lf! - i THE 1917 WINTER COURSE STUDENTS :sz 5 BU'-.7 15x E 14 okes il Zokes iii some of these jokes jfor the tnorlo is large iBou'he hearo before, boob jokes are fetn, Zlust laugh again Quo not ehetpone Quo oon't get sore. 185 as mise as you "David," said the Sunday School teacher, "do you know what to eat, and what to drink, and what to avoid?"

THE QUICK-WITTED WAITER ' A downtown restaurant has made its reputation upon one waiter who was never yet found wanting to translate an order into a language of his own, and he and the cook understand each other perfectly. "One order of pea soup," one customer will say. "A plash of split peas," cries the waiter. "Couple of doughnuts and a cup of coffee, without cream," another will order. "Two submarines and a mug of murk-no cow!" orders the waiter. "An order of ham and eggs," says the customer. "Roast two on a slice of squeal!" the waiter shouts. "Beef stew and a cup of tea for me," says a new arrival. ' "Bossy in a bowl-boiled leaves on the side!" sings the waiter. "A dozen raw oysters," orders a busy business man. "Twelve alive in the shell!" shouts the waiter. "Where's my eggs on toast?" complains a man who has been waiting. ' "Rush the biddies on a raft!" cries the waiter. "I want a rump steak rare," orders another man. "Slab of moo-let him chew it!" the waiter calls. "I want a bowl of tomato soup," ordered one man, 157 "a plate of beans, bread and butter, a piece of apple pie, and a glass of water." The waiter seemed puzzled for an instant: then he shouted into the tube as follows: "One splash of red noise, platter of Saturday nights, dough well done with cow to cover, Eve with a lid on, and a chaser of Adam's ale!" "Everett," said his mother sternly, "you should not fight with that Nicholson boy." "I know it, ma," said Everett penitently. "That's right, and when did you find it out?" "About a minute after I hit him." 'Neta-"Did you ever read 'Looking Backward?"' Dorothea-"Yes, once. In a test and I nearly got canned for it." We can't all smoke ten-cent cigars Or drive a limousine, But we can all collect the bands, And smell the gasoline. 1-' . A few days ago a prominent young man took his best girl a bouquet of fiowers. The young woman' was so pleased that she threw her arms around his neck and kissed him. He rose and started to go. "I'm sorry I offended you, Dick," she said.
