Of a good fight made by a knight— A knight of yesterday. No glittering armor did he wear. No shining blade he bore; But just as valiantly he fought As those good knights of yore. Who in the days of chivalry. Had nobly gone before. His foe was not of humankind. His fight was not with man. But ' gainst the power of Ignorance He boldly raised his hand. And right and left did smite amain, And fearlessly did stand. He strove that every little child Whate ' er its lot might be. Should not in mental darkness dwell. But look abroad and see The beauteous light that knowledge gives. And giving, makes man free. And God be praised, the yielding foe He ever backward drove. Nor turned aside, nor e ' er forgot The end for which he strove. Strong in the strength that always comes From an abiding love. —A Knight of Yesterday, by R. D. Douglas, in the State Normal Magazine, 1906. i J A SHORT HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR COLLEGE At this milepost in our journey, the twenty-hfth anniversary of the founding of our College, it is interesting to review the splendid progress made from time to time, and to note the forces at work from year to year in the evolution of our institution into a real college whose name we mention with a feeling of pride. Perhaps the most satisfactory way of making this review at least in regard to the essential facts, is to make a chrono- logical study of events and their significance. 1891 The North Carolina State Normal and Industrial School was established by an act of the General Assembly. This was accomplished only after a hard struggle of ten years ' duration. Greensboro, with her favorable location, her offer of thirty thousand dollars and ten acres of land, donated by R. S. Pullen, R. T. Gray, E. P. Wharton, and others, was chosen as the school home. 1892 On October 5th the school first operied its doors for the reception of students, with Dr. Charles Duncan Mclver as President. During this year two hundred twenty-three students were enrolled. Out of this number there was a graduating class of eleven, all of whom, with one exception, were graduates of other colleges for women in the State. To train the minds of these two hundred twenty-three students, coming from sixty-eight out of the ninety-six counties, there was a faculty force of fifteen members. The dormitory capacity and equipment this first year were very meager, there being room for only one hundred fifty boarders. On the whole campus there were only six buildings. 1893 The school received its first appropriation since the ten thousand dollars donated in 1891. This appropriation amounted to twelve thousand five hundred dollars. This year the Young Women ' s Christian Association and the Cornelian and Adel- phian Societies were established. 1894 Was notable as being the year in which a young Nebraskan, William Jennings Bryan, delivered the Commencement address. This was the first appearance of the young Con- gressman in North Carolina. WT 1895 The enrollment had increased from two hundred twenty-three during the first year to four hundred forty-four in 1895. To accomodate the ever increasing number of students making application each year, two wings were added to the dormitory, a brick dining hall was erected, and a seven-room infirmary built. There was also a purchase of one hundred twelve acres of land north of the campus during this year. Perhaps the most remarkable addition was the establishment of a new public school consisting of six grades in charge of expert teachers, used as a practice and observation school. 1897 One of the conspicuous changes of this year had to do with the name of the school. It was now changed to the North Carolina State Normal and Industrial College. The first edition of the College Magazine came out in March of this year. More improvements were made. This year witnessed the erection of a new barn, a dairy building, and a greenhouse. 1899 The College was closed from November 21st through January 30th, on account of a typhoid epidemic. The Sarah and Evelyn Bailey Memorial fund was established by Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Bailey. They gave, also, one thousand dollars to furnish a memorial room in the contem- plated Students ' Building. This room was to be used at the discretion of the Young Women ' s Christian Association. 1901 In June, 1901, a fifteen thousand dollar practice school building was erected. June also was the month in which the college received a gift of ten thousand dollars from George Foster Peabody of New York. Five thousand dollars of this money was to be used on an educational park, consisting of one hundred twenty-five acres. 1902 The Students ' Building fund was started in 1902, and the corner stone of this building was laid. 1904 The event in the year that stands out most vividly is the fire which occurred on the early morning of January 21st, when the old brick dormitory, the kitchen, the dining room, and the laundry — eighty thousand dollars worth of property — were totally destroyed. However, a modern brick laundry was built during this year to replace the one destroyed by fire, and plans were made for other new buildings. " •r 1905 Dr. Mclver was elected President of the Southern Educational Conference. 1906 The death of Dr. Mclver on September 17th caused a deep shadow of gloom to be cast over the entire State. From the beginning, the two main buildings were heated by steam, but it was not until 1906 that the other buildings on the campus were heated from a central heating plant. 1907 Dr. Julius I. Foust, after filling the place of Acting President for one year, was elected President in the early summer. September 12th of this year saw the completion of the South Wing of Spencer Building at a cost of thirty thousand dollars. In July the Alumnae Association started the Mclver Loan Fund. Ninety-one counties were represented this year at the College, and the total enroll- ment, including the children of the Training School, amounted to nine hundred thirty. 1908 On December 3d occurred the dedication of the new science building known as the Mclver Memorial building. This handsome building was erected on the site of the burned building at a cost of fifty-four thousand dollars. The Students ' Building was also com- pleted during this year at a cost of sixty thousand dollars. There were forty-seven graduates this year, only seven of whom received degrees. The others received the regular College Diploma. 1909 This year is remarkable as being the year of full fledged bachelor graduates. This class began with nineteen Freshmen and ended with nineteen Seniors. 1910 The College Song was composed in 1910 by Miss Laura B. Weill. This year also witnessed the establishment of Founder ' s Day and the extension de- partment. On September 22d the election of members to the Students ' Council took place. This Students ' Council was to confer with the Faculty Council in matters pertaining to the government of the student body. This election was important as marking the estaTDlish- ment of a new form of government. On November 25th occurred the first inter-society debate. T ' g ' MT 1911 The new Infirmary, as we know it today, was first opened for inspection on March 18th. 1912 The College Chorus was organized. The completion of Senior Hall, now known as Woman ' s Building, was accomplished in t he fall of 1912. This is a handsome building, modern and convenient in every respect. In the spring of this year the first Old English Pageant was given with much success. 1913 Nineteen hundred thirteen witnessed the building of another brick dormitory. Kirk- land Hall, similar in every way to Woman ' s Building. 1914 A new pipe organ was installed in the Chapel of Students ' Building during this year. The standard of the College was raised. Heretofore the number of units required for entrance was eleven and a half. This year the number was raised to twelve and a half. Perhaps the event bearing most on the lives of the students was the beginning of a new form of government, known as " Student Government. " This was a great onward step, and the students, as well as the faculty were justly proud of the achievement. The adop- tion of this new form of government occurred in the spring. 1915 The College authorities, determined to make the College a first-class institution, again raised the number of units required for entrance. This year the number was increased another half unit. 1916-1917 Pageant year again. At last the goal for which those interested in the work of the College have been look- ing forward so long has been reached. We now have a fourteen-unit entrance basis. This makes us rank among the first-class colleges of the South. This year we have seven hundred twenty-five students enrolled, and a Senior class consisting of eighty-two members. The Faculty Council has a membership of eighty- eight. There are now fourteen buildings on the campus, in contrast with the six of 1892. All of these buildings are fitted up with modern conveniences. ,u«_T FACULTY 1893-1894 CHAPEL IN 1893 T VJ " T .

Naturally they considered the past four years of most importance, and therefore decided upon contemporaneous history. For this reason I have been engaged to give an illustrated or stereopticon his- tory of the Class of 1917. On September the thirteenth, nineteen hundred and thirteen, there was enacted upon the Normal campus an event of much importance, like in many respects to the coming of the Barbarians. The Freshmen arrived and were received with open arms, entrance exams, and Y. W. C. A. tea behind the Students ' Building (hot tea is supposed to neutralize tears). Most cordially were they received by the literary societies. Here you see a M m PICTURE PICTURE PICTURE 3 This instrument, imported for the occasion, is guaranteed to make of an evening dress an antiquated ruin and to be a vocal inspiration for the classic. " Bedspreads, Sheets. Pillow Cases. " An elaborate banquet was afterward given the new Cornelians and Adelphians in recompense for the painful goat-rites just undergone. In picture 2 we have the scene of one of the most elaborate formal functions of society given in the history of the college— the one given in honor of the debutantes by the Class of 1916. This is the large dancing pavilion of Lindley Park upon the Pomona Boulevard. Society Notes report " the elaborate gowns of tulle and silver lace, the delicious refreshments of marshmallows and coffee served on glistening cut glass and silver, the gipsy ballet given— all combined to make the Sophomore-Freshman party a decided success. " In Picture 3 we have the chosen leader of the debutantes now organized into the Class of 1917— the first president. Catherine Lapsley. Is there not a look of " persevere " about the lady? Were the picture tinted you could see that she wore blue and white. In Picture 4 we have a view of the first function ever staged by the now important organization. You notice that the gaze of all is bent upon the small object in the fore-ground. This is their class tree — a willow PICTURE 4 PICTURE 5 PICTURE 6 from Arcadia. You note their Arcadian costumes. As modern Gabriels and Evangelines they have just fin- ished the performance of certain rites around the little willow. In Picture 5 you have the leader of the class during the latter part of its first year— Ruth Kernodle. In collecting facts I find that the class prospered and grew in class spirit during her administration. Picture 6 is a scene from the Freshman af-Fair. given, it is understood, for financial purposes by the grow- ing organization. This shows the main feature of the Fair — the Maypole dance. It is well to note the grace- fulness of each figure, betokening bounteous material for future pageant dancers. In the background you notice a tent — this is the baby show tent. This netted for the class in gate receipts the enormous sum of $1.02. In Picture 7 we have a group of 1917 ' s first champions in the athletic phase of college history. Note the basketball in the foreground, so well held down. I am sorry to add they did not hold down the basketball cup These pictures present the tenor of important events in the first year of I917 ' s history. Now let us consider Year Number Two. the jolly Sophomore year. In Picture 8 we have here the presi- dents of the class, Genevieve Moore and Estelle Dillon. These statesmen had only 107 to lead in contrast to the 208 of the former year. As the entertained now chose to entertain in honor of the new arrivals, the Freshmen, the entire Sopho- more Class presented the drama, " Visions of Youth " — Picture 9, Note the various childish playthings repre- r{j ¥j PICTURE 10 sented— Peter. Peter, pumpkin-eater, and the dolls on eac at whose command all these personages appear. For once in the life of the class they were entitled tc " 1917.

Note the look upon :Ot obeyed ' ly ' s command- ed blue " ? This victory, the feast afterward given in the dining hall in honor of the team; in fact all the remainder of 19l7 ' s streaks of good fortune were inspired by a certain lucky star, a possession much revered by the Sopho- mores. Let me introduce you to Sophy Moore. 1917 ' s mortgage on luck. Picture 11. Nothing played a more determining part in 19l7 ' s life than an alliance, a deep and ardent friendship, formed with the 1915 Seniors at this period of history. You have in Picture 12 the captains of the two sister basketball teams being carted from the field of a strenuous game. They seem to be sharing honors equally, though the tournament cup has just been won by the Seniors. The spirit of the game we find recorded in college annals in the poem of one of the Sophomore songs — " Whoe ' er may win the victory What ' s the difference in the name? Don ' t you see. dear sisters. ' Tis in the family just the same? " loved sisters, the Sophomores in ;o Guilford Battle-Ground. You tuted the custom of Sophomore-Senior •t in Picture 13 the limousine and its Wishing to entertain th entertainment with a limousi gala-bound occupants. In Picture 14 we have the Hopefuls entertaining the Realities. Let me explain that those who, afte devastating Midterminal Storms were no longer Sophomores, formed the organization of Hopefuls. Thi ganization cooperated splendidly with 1917 as may be seen in the spreading of feasts in the lunch room. THE THIRD COLLEGE SPAN First. I call your attention to the presidents whose administrations covered this term— Madge, or Mum, Kennette and Winifred Beckwith— Picture 15. Now the center of Junior activities. Behold the Junior lunch room. Picture 16. This should suggest to i-seventeener divers call meetings, over the fact that the training-school inspector had found three Wf PICTURE 13 PICTURE M put in. " Also it should suggest the crumbs under the table leg and that Dr. Foust " refused to have hot wa inspiration for the Junior dirge — " The hours I ' ve spent with thee, dear room. Are as a string of sixes made: Each hour a period, each period lost Before Latin, before Latin. " In Picture 17 we have the A-Mus-U star, a Prima Donna from foreign parts— Miss Roth, imported for the A-Mus-U night in November by the Juniors. It is reported that the star attracted large crowds: gallery seats sold for $5. The event of the Junior year — the Junior-Senior Banquet, was a very elaborate affair, given a full column in the Greensboro News. In Picture 1 8 we have the ballet dancers from the Madison Square roof garden who danced at the function, danced around a lovely bed of violets grown in Woman ' s Building basement, between the hours of six and seven a. m. Those present were Juniors, Seniors ancf " their brothers. " The activities of the Junior year were appropriately ended by an " end " — Junior week-end. This repre- sented, in terms of the Smart Set. the Junior Season. The first day was set aside as the sporting season — field day. As usual 1917 came out second— almost first! Luncheon and dinner parties were given at which those present were " only the Junior Class. " We have in Picture 19 the final function, a Junior theatre party at the Bijou Palace. It is understood that the management put on a part of the serial, " The Iron ( la« c ;...ially for the occasion. $y|J i ) PICTURE 19 PICTURE 20 PICTURE 21 SENIOR ADMINISTRATION The administration we have at present is represented in picture 20. — Norma Styron. alias " Ail. " and Fannie Morris. Wishing to entertain the pillars of the college, the Senior Class, casting about for a suitable place, decided that a new building must be erected for the affair. Therefore on the site of the Adelphian and Cornelian Society halls they had constructed a luxurious colonial home. There the faculty masquerade ball was given at Christ- mas time. We have here in Picture 21 some of the leading characters in this house and heart warming. Note the elaborateness of their costumes. Durmg the first part of this Senior year the class was deeply stirred by a certain agitation, a yearning for symbolism, outward appearance. The slogan of this agitation was " How will we look at Commencement? " We have in Pictu re 22 a Senior looking as they all still long to look. In the early spring, stirred by longing for self-expression and for— the dollar — 1917 turned again to dra- matics and presented " Mice and Men. " You have in Picture 23 the brilliant caste. The star you see shining is Alice Vaiden Williams. I have traced this part of college history well nigh to the present day. If my audience is still interested, I recommend that they consult the late daily papers for the last activities of the Class of 1917. MARGARET BLYTHE.

Raising his magic pipe, he sends a clear, sweet call abroad over the land. Then he lovingly examines his instrument as he waits, listening. It is carved from purest ivory and set with blood-red rubies, but is mute and powerless until the Master Spirit of ' 19 breathes his soul into it. Once again he raises this pipe of red and white to his lips and calls insistently, pleadingly. Lo, from the hills and lowlands, from near and far, young maidens turn their steps toward the peak where the kindly Piper waits and watches. There is a strangely familiar note in his song and each heart is eager to find its meaning. As they listen to the minor strains which follow, they feel their own emotions expressed perfectly by the great Master Spirit. Gradually the tones grow fuller and surer, and the travelers begin to guess his secret. " Be Ready! Be Ready! " the music seems to say. " Be Ready, " each one echoes in her heart; and with firm and careful steps she marches upward to the rhythmic melody of the pipe. Who cares if the way is steep? Who cares if the wind blows cold? Each moment brings the Piper nearer, and each step brings new visions of the great country whence they have come, the country to which they will return after they stand erect at the Piper ' s side and make his glorious vision their own. But see! A cloud is drifting over the face of the mountain, and the Piper and his friends are concealed behind it. With the journey half completed, and the joyous song still sounding, we pause until the cloud has passed on, when we may see the journey ' s other half and know that glad moment when the maidens of 1919 shall reach their Master Spirit.

Wooten Inez Wooten Ruth Wooten Elsie Yarborough Carson Yates Zoe Yoder JACK VAN LINDLEY Freshman Class Mascot w FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY It was on a bright afternoon in October, and an eventful one for the students of the State Normal College, that two upper-classmen were strolling with a rather purposeful aimiessness up and down before Curry building. Intent upon the proceedings in Curry chapel, they carried on a disconnected conversation, with only a scattered word or two here and there. " Such a large class -unlimited opportunities, " murmured one. " My curiosity will surely overwhelm me if they don ' t hurry, " interrupted the other, as a burst of applause floated from the open windows. Upstairs in the chapel, several hundreds of eager voices were whispering prophetically. Presiding over the assemblage was Mr. Forney, whose experience with managing new classes made him capable of making any meeting parliamentary. " Does some one move that — " he began. A dozen voices clamored for recognition. In this manner the all important election of the first Freshman class officers proceeded. To the two impatient girls below the time passed very slowly. Nor were they the only girls who were interested in the Freshman class that afternoon. Finally the first girl ' s curiosity grew so intense that she could not control an exclamation. " If they don ' t hurry Vic, I think I ' ll go up and ask how they ' re coming on, " she said. " Well, Madelyn, I don ' t believe they ' ll have finished by supper; so I guess we ' ll just have to wait, " replied Vic; and she was right. As the bell for supper rang the Freshmen poured out of Curry to reply to the numerous queries thrust at them. After supper the meeting was again taken up, and the remaining officers elected. Thus, the infant class with its well-chosen leaders, took its first step. Henceforth, they were to step out alone, to fall, perhaps, but surely to rise, with the elasticity of youth — to grow even stronger and more independent. As " Tempus " showed his inevitable inclination to " fugit, " the heart of every Fresh- man was rejoiced by a mysterious invitation from the Queen of Night, bidding her to a festival. Being babies, the Freshmen were thrilled at the prospect of staying up at night, instead of being tucked away beneath the covers of their ignorance. Accordingly, on Sat- urday evening, the fourth of November, the infant class was initiated into the mysteries of Night by the hospitable Sophomores. From that time on, many unusual things happened for the youngest member of the Class family. Through various trials and defeats, the Freshman class bore itself in the year of its infancy, from having to sit for its picture, which you all know is the bane of childhood, to having mid-term exams. The many social honors given the debutantes of the season; the good hand of fellowship extended by the upper-classmen; and the friendly and faithful aid proffered by the faculty, they received with pleasure and appreciation. Thus, aided and encouraged, the baby class passed through the various stages of infancy, until it has at last come to the borderland of childhood. On their infancy, the Freshmen look back with pleasure; on the coming years, they look with desire — the strong and con- stant desire to fill their place in the life of the College worthily.

Joy, beauty, vigor, quickened emotions, riot of color, abandon of motion, passion, am- bition, superabundant iie,— youth: Old England of Good Queen Bess. With a blare of trumpets at 2:15 on May 20, 1916, " dull care " was swept from the confines of our campus and old Father Time could but rub his eyes and pinch himself at finding himself anachronized three hundred years and plunged unceremoniously into that magical, mystical, mirthful, playtime, — A MAY DAY OF OLD ENGLAND There was the May Queen, always the center of the village common, the center, now, of the revels of a thousand carefree girls, pouring out the enthusiasm of youth and the untrammeled, hearty emotions of humanity in the dances and ballads which had formed the expression of the living personality of our race at its flood tide of creative power and awakened imagination. The May-poles in their rhythm of motion and weaving of color, the morris dances of grotesque antics, the graceful milkmaids and other workers, present- ing their trade or handicraft, exalted by the gayety and rhythm of vivified imagination : the groups of minstrels singing of passion, adventure, and, now and then, a bit of pathos, all united in the reproduction of this wonderful kaleidoscopic life, blending the realistic and the romantic, the grotesque and the exquisite, the humorous and the pathetic, and the crassness of the peasant dolt and the intensity of artistic sympathy of those old Elizabethan masters whose names are yet the conjure words of life and literature. Then there were the plays: — the old mystery folk play of " St. George and the Dragon, " with its varied characters drawn from history, legend and nursery tale, giving us the first crude form of English dramatic art as early as the fifteenth century; and " Robin Hood and His Merry Men, " giving us the spirit of adventure, excitement, chivalry, and law-defiance of the time, together with the hero worship and glamour always connected with that popular character of English history, tradition and song, " Richard the Lion- Hearted. " " Hue and Cry after Cupid, " that exquisite bit of poetry and art given us by " Rare Ben Jonson, " formed the last link in the chain of drama development before the matchless name— Shakespeare. " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream " and " As You Like It " were given, as were the others, in the open, in the beautiful settings of the college park; and ' twas here that Father Time forgot his wrinkles and joined the woodland revels of the sprites and fairies. At evening, all gathered again to the common to witness the wide range of Elizabethan England ' s varied life. As the May Day drew to its close the revelers, on bended knee in the light of the setting sun, raised hearts and voices in the Evening Hymn. r ■ u fc ' MT ARDREY AND TOUCHSTONE IN YE PLAY, " AS YOU LIKE IT " P u % T ROBIN HOOD AND MAID MARIA: T »1T r PUCK IN YE PLAY, " A MIDSUMMER NIGHT ' S DREAM " ■p T ¥j ' mj ommm T g« " " President VjcePresident Mabel (Jarvis ary Howell r OFFICERS OF STUDENT SELF GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION f :1 Bouldin Poole HOUSE PRESIDENTS Alirr Woman ' s Building I nnr a Holt . . .South Wing.

This debate is held on Thanksgiving evening in the chapel of the Students ' building. Great excitement is evident as the students gather to hear repre- sentatives from each society discuss one of the current economic prob- lems. Society spirit reaches its height at the end of the debate when all loyal Cornelians and Adelphians wait with tense nerves and bated breath to hear the decision of the judges. Each year members of the Faculty choose as judges three prominent citizens of North Carolina who are thoroughly acquainted with national affairs and can judge the speeches with careful deliberation. In 1916 Mr. R. C. Bernau presented to the societies a beautiful loving cup on which the name of the winning society is to be engraved annually. If either society wins the debate three succeeding years it will earn the cup as a permanent possession. Mr. Bernau ' s interest in the societies and the loving cup presented will be a source of inspiration for even greater effort to win the debate in future years. COL LEGE DEBATING CLUB The College Debating Club is one of the new organizations at the College. The need for more adequate training in debating had been felt for a long time, so plans were made for the organization of this club by the Inter-Society Debating Committee, with the help of a faculty committee. Ten members were elected from each society and the club held its first meeting November 8, 1916. The immediate aim of the club is to foster de- bating both at the College and throughout the State. The ultimate aim is to engage in inter-collegiate debate.

Chief " SHORT STORY PRIZE In order to make literature a more vital phase of our college course, and to encourage in the students the desire for self-expression, the Cor- nelian and Adelphian literary societies offer annually a five dollar gold piece to the girl from either society who, in the opinion of the judges, submits the best short story. This prize was instituted by Mr. Mathe- son who, from 1906 until 1913, was head of the Department of Educa- tion. Zeal and ambition for their societies causes students who have never realized their literary ability to enter the contest, and many interesting and clever stories are submitted for inspection by the judges. O. HENRY LOVING CUP The Adelphian and Cornelian literary societies, feeling that the High School girls of North Carolina should have a lively interest in this College, and believing that a prize for literary achievement would be a stimulus to literary effort, offered in 1913 a cup for the best short story written by a high school girl in the State. The societies agreed that this cup be called the 0. Henry Loving Cup, in honor of North Carolina ' s gifted son. After each annual contest the name of the winner, the winner ' s high school, and the date are engraved on the cup, and the winning school keeps the cup until the next contest. We hope that the 0. Henry Loving Cup will be a means of discover- ing some hidden literary genius among the high school girls of the Old North State. ■ f Tij THE PRESIDENT ' S COUNCIL The President ' s Council draws together the various organizations connected with life among the students -each striving necessarily to- ward a different end — and through their representatives unites each with a common aim, the College motto: Service. In this body which, true to its motto, meets for the purpose of discussing the welfare of the Col- lege as a whole as it is seen through the different parts, is found; one representative of each phase of college life, the heads of various organi- zations; president of the Athletic Association, presidents of the four Col- lege classes -Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior — , the chief marshal, the editor-in-chief of the annual, " The Carolinian, " the editor- in-chief of the College magazine, one member from each of the two liter- ary societies. Cornelian and Adelphian, president of the Young Wo- men ' s Christian Association, and the president of the Students ' Self- Government Association, who presides. This council is similar in a much smaller degree to the Cabinet of the President of the United States, being composed of the heads of departments and being created for the same purpose, an Advisory Board for the President of our Association. rr p THLETICS • ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION OFFICERS Annie Daniel President Gladys Murrill Secretary Elizabeth Thames Treasurer Eliza Collins Critic Gladys Emerson Senior Vice-President Mary Moyle Junior Vice-President Aline Reid Sophomore Vice-President Jessie Clark Freshman Vice-President Caroline Carter Special Vice-President Tfer T VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM Claudia Cheek Captain Janie Ipock Center Madge Kennette Center ( Irma Reid Forwards - Annie Daniel ( Mary Gwynn Aline Reid i Caroline Robinson ■ Guards Jennie Kirkpatrick ) SENIOR HOCKEY TEAM CHAMPION Kate Jones Captain Frances Morris Wing Juanita McDougald Wing Annie Daniel Forward Norma Styron Forward Margaret Blythe Halfback Elizabeth Evans Half back Madge Kennette Half back Gladys Emerson Fullback Estelle Dillon Fullback Ellen Rose Goal Hattie May Covington Substitute Lois Campbell Substitute Ruth Kernodle Substitute Ethel Monroe Substitute - t SENIOR BASKETBALL TEAM Norma Styron Captain Kate Jones Center Madge Kennette Center Annie Daniel Forward Lois Campbell Forward Marianne Richard Forward Hattie Mae Covington Guard Estelle Dillon Guard Ellen Rose Guard Ethel Monroe Substitute Gladys Emerson Substitute ' - t JUNIOR HOCKEY TEAM Gladys Murrill .

It was not the first of its family, for many sisters had been conceived and brought forth from the minds of the college athletes, only to enjoy a brief span of existence and then pass away. But these elder departed sisters were different in some essential points from the youngest and only surviving member of the family. The first came to life in a haphazard manner with the ultimate aim and only purpose of consisting of a number of the prettiest girls whose only requirement for membership was to assume a tennis-like pose for the " Carolinian " photographer. After this exhausting labor the club suffered a premature death. It was not so with the present flourishing sister, which came into being on a basis of real service — to make of ungainly, awkward maidens well-poised, graceful women; to give a wholesome source of fun; to furnish or equip with a form of outdoor sport which might be pursued after college days are over; to create a more general interest in the development possible from such a game, and to paint nature ' s colors where they should be— on a fair maiden ' s cheek. The progenitors saw that to accomplish this, two qualities should be present in the offspring — organization and interest stimuli. It was decided that only the best material should go into its composition, and the following scale of five points was evolved, three being required for membership. I. Service (total counting two points). 1 . Arm stroke. 2. Second serve. 3. Accuracy. 4. Speed. II. Net-playing (one point). III. General efficiency (two points). 1. Placing. 2. Backhand stroke. 3. Handling racquet. 4. Alertness. 5. Vigor of strokes. 6. Covering court. 7. Team work (in doubles). Three units constitute a point. At least one point, in which I must be a constituent, shall come from group I. That person winning highest honors at fall and mid-year tourna- ments is the Head-of-Tennis, while she who wins second place is Secretary-Treasurer. The members of the club and the physical directors act as coaches to those who wish to make the club. At the end of each month entries for club membership hold a tournament. To the person holding highest honors three times, a racquet is awarded by the Athletic Association. In January the first tournament was held as Rally Week, and the Tennis Club was launched on its career.

C. Oct. 14— The Adelphian Lit- erary Society and a few favored guests made merry in the great dining hall at the State Normal College last night at the annual banquet following initiation of new members drawn from this year ' s Freshman class. Owing to the fact that there were about one hundred and fifty to be instructed in the mysteries of Adelphai, it was not until nearly 10 o ' clock that the many hundreds who attended were finally seated at the tables which surrounded the Greek temple where the chief event of the evening, the classic dance in honor of Adelphai. was staged; but the delightful hour and a half that followed was one of those typical college events that those who have once been fortunate enough to attend are willing to wait a night through for. Miss Elisabeth Moses made a charming toast- mistress, serving that part of the menu marked " Immaterial " as deftly as the chiffon-clad maidens who passed up and down between the long tables served the other, the " Material " course. Each health proposed was responded to by a representa- tive of those honored. Miss Annie Bernard Benson responded for the initiates, Miss Edith Avery for the guests. Miss Flora Garrett for the Cornelians, Miss Kathryn Severson for the faculty, and Mr. Gerald Johnson for the press. The response to the toast, " To Adelphai, " was a dance, remarkable in its beauty, which was presented by Misses McBride Alexander, Olivera Cox. Annie Daniels, Arnette Hathaway, Louise Howell, Mary Howell, Ernestine Kennette, Madge Kennette, Lois Lytle, Altah Pickett, Marianne Richards, Evelyn Shipley, Mabel Smith and Rebecca Symmes. The annual society banquets always draw num- bers of alumnae back to their Alma Mater, and the event of last evening bore some aspects of a reunion. r g r w CORNELIAN SOCIETY BANQUET Cornelians Initiate One Hundred and Sixty-nine GREATEST SOCIAL EVENT OF THE SEASON MISS HOWELL IN ROLE OF TOASTMISTRESS Greensboro, N. C. Oct. 15— The Annual Initia- tion Banquet of the Cornelian Literary Society of the State Normal College was held last night. At nine o ' clock Cornelians, both new and old, assembled in the banquet hall, which had been decorated for the occasion with smilax, maiden hair ferns and chrysanthemums in tall white vases, innumerable candles shedding a soft glow over all. Hood ' s or- chestra furnished music during the evening. The menu cards of leather carried out the shape of the society pin and bore the following menu: Fruit Cocktail Pressed Chicken Wafers Olive Sandwiches Stuffed Celery Peach Cream Gold and Silver Cake Cafe Noir Mints Miss Maggie Staton Howell of Tarboro acted as toastmistress in a most charming and graceful man- ner. The first toast given was " The Latest Link in Our Chain, " by Miss Laura Holt, to which Miss Hazel West responded. Miss Sadie Lee Holden next very humorously toasted " Our Recent Foe, the Greasy Pole " ; the pole did not respond. " The Adel- phians " were toasted by Miss Katherine Phillips and Miss Louise Howell; one of their members re- sponded. The toast to the College. " Service, " was offered by Miss Caroline Goforth, and was responded to by the College Physician, Dr. Anna M. Gove. Then followed toasts to " Cornelia, " charmingly of- fered by Miss Eleanore Elliott; " Our Friends, " Miss Alice Vaiden Williams; response by Mr. C. M. Waynick. " Our Honorary Members. " by Miss Wilma Green; response. Miss Mary Van Poole. The final toast, " America, " proposed by Miss Minnie Long, brought the banquet to a close, and the guests left the hall while the orchestra played " America. " JUNIOR CLASS RECEPTION Greensboro. N. C. April 4 — On Saturday evening. April the first, the Junior Class of the State Normal College received in honor of the Senior Class. The entire first floor of Students ' building was thrown into one big reception hall, which was tastefully dec- orated with large palms. After passing down the re- ceiving line, which was composed of Miss Winifred Beckwith. Mr. Berryman Green. Miss Tempe Boddie, Mr. John Seymour. Miss Emma King, lady princi- pal; Miss Melville Fort, instructor in art. the guests were ushered upstairs. Here a most delightful read- ing " The Courage of the Commonplace, " was given by Prof. J. H. Peele of Guilford College. Afterwards the guests were shown into the dining hall, where from nine-thirty until twelve a banquet was enjoyed. As the guests entered the hall, banks of palms met their eyes. An orchestra furnished music for the evening. The tables of the banquet hall were ar- ranged in diamond shape. In the center of each table was a gilt basket filled with violets, the Senior class flower. A large circular bed of violets lay in the center of the diamond, around which four Freshmen. Misses Rebecca Symmes. Mildred Thorpe, Mary Howell, and Eoline Everett, interpreted " The Mes- sage of the Violets " by a graceful aesthetic dance. The toastmistress for the evening was Miss Wini- fred Beckwith. president of the Junior Class, who presided with delightful dignity. The toasts were: To Friendship— Ruth Roth. To the Senior Class— Frances Morris. Miss Boddie. who is president of the Senior Class, responded with grace and dignity. To Our Chaperones — Norma Styron. To this toast. Miss Fort, an honorary member of the Junior Class, gave a very clever response. To Our Escorts — Kate Jones, Representing all of the escorts of the evening, Mr. J. G. Cowan responded most originally to the toast given them. To North Carolina— Lois Campbell. Mr. R. D. Douglas, father of the Senior class mas- cot, responded well, giving some of the noble ideals of all true North Carolinians. The occasion was one of the big social events of the college year and was greatly enjoyed by each guest. SOPHOMORES ENTERTAIN FRESHMEN •BABIES " ARE ALLOWED TO " STAY UP AT NIGHT " Greensboro, N. C, Nov. 5 — Last night in the Society Halls in the Students ' building, the Sophomore class of the State Normal College enter- esting manner. The hostesses had summoned to their aid all of the strange and fascinating creatures that dwell in the forest by night, with the result that the Realm of Night was faithfully and charmingly represented. Miss Mary Lathrop, president of the Class of ' 19, as Queen of Night, received the guests from a black-draped throne, after which they were invited by a troupe of realistic black bats to witness a dance of the moonbeams which was taking place in the Adelphian Hall. In time with the rising moon, a dozen graceful girls typified the shedding of her light over the whole forest with a rarely appro- priate dance. The Cornelian Hall was then the scene of weird and unhallowed rites performed by a band of witches gathered about a cauldron set over glowing coals. To break the spell of the witches, perhaps, the Sand- man next made his appearance, followed by two sleepy little children clutching their dolls and bed- room candles. True to his name, he scattered over his audience sand in the shape of bright-colored con- fetti. A troop of nine girls representing as many night- ingales that seemed unable to resist the charm of the revels longer, interested the visitors in a dance all their own. This was succeeded by a drill, in which a company of stars formed successively, while their mythological story was told, several of the con- stellations seen in the night skies. After the stars had twinkled away, the Lady of Dreams entered the hall, followed by a retinue of lavender poppies, who carried in their arms huge bunches of the dream- bringing blossoms, which they presented to the guests. The black bats then served a lavender ice course, after which, the festival ended, the Queen of Night took a gracious farewell of her visitors, and closed once more the portals of the Dark Kingdom. Tlteu.JjK " rr ANNUAL GALA NIGHT ' NORMAL AT THE Greensboro. N. C. Jan. 23— Last night the Normal College girls made merry at their annual college party. They entered into it with the spirit that. " In the mud and scum of things. There alway, aiway. something sings. ' and thus it always is when they emerge from the grime and toil of examinations, the " Waterloos of their existence, into the annual College party, which is an antidote as effective for mental ills as anti- toxin is for diphtheria. They go. as it were, to B ' rer Rabbit ' s laughin ' place, and there eat Br ' er Man ' s parched " goobers " and laugh and sing until they can ' t tell a 1 from a 6. One would think he had stepped into the midst of the " Canterbury Tales. " so motley a company had gathered together: Colonial dames, darkies of all sizes from the pickaninnies to the pwrtly mammies, gypsies, troubadours, witches; great movements there in person, such as. " Equal Suffrage. " and the prohibition platform; many of the best loved fairy tale characters, funny paper folk. Chinamen, ranch- men with sombreros and whips, here and there a " Flower of Old Japan. " no less a personage than Captain Kidd himself and many, many more. An unheard of treat was brought into their midst in the form of " movies. " in which some of the " most potent, grave, and reverend " instructors played prominent roles. There were also various phases of college life shown. Appropriate songs. " College Mine. " " A Box from Home, " " Vesper Night, " " Get Permission. " " Take Warning. " " Quarrantine. " " When the Grass Begins to Peep. " and " We Can ' t Let You Out. " were sung while the reels were being changed. The prizes for the most beautiful, best represented, best disguised, most comical and most appropriate costumes were then awarded and the prize song. " We Can ' t Let You Out " was announced. With unwilling feet the girls answered the sound of " taps " and made their way to their respective rooms, each one with the feeling that it was good to have been there. DR. FOUST ' S BIRTHDAY PARTY Greensboro. N. C. Nov. 24 — As a token of deep respect and love for their president, the student body of the State Normal College planned and exe- cuted last night a surprise birthday party in cele- bration of the fifty-first anniversary of his birth. Dr. Foust accepted an invitation to take supper with the students in the spacious dining room on that evening, and here he was given a real surprise. On the table at which Dr. Foust sat was a huge birthday cake with a large lighted candle in the center, and a similarly lighted candle was placed on each table. A pleasing feature of the supper was the singing by all of the classes of appropriately worded songs composed especially for the occasion. Mince pie and fried oysters, favorite dishes of the honor guest, were served. After the supper, groups of students acted out scenes from the childhood and youth of Dr. Foust, This acting was very cleverly done and elicited much applause. Afterwards, when the company had left the dining hall. Dr. Foust was presented with a handsome pair of gold cuff buttons from the student body. t «g J COLLEGE NIGHT CELEBRATED AT THE NORMAL Greensboro. N. C, Sept. 17 — Last night at eight o ' clock the students of the State Normal College held their annual College Night exercises in the auditorium of the Students ' building. The big audi- torium was full of those friends of the girls who usually wear austere looks to hide their real dispo- sitions, namely the faculty, but the major portion of the audience was made up of those who for the first time had torn themselves away from home and mother and. though amused for the time being, showed that they were hiding some secret sorrow from the world. Miss Ruth Kernodle. president of the Student Government Association, and Miss Louise Maddrey. president of the Young Women ' s Christian Associa- tion, welcomed the new students in behalf of their hostesses, the old students. Words of wisdom these which urged the girls to take math, (it is required) and not to take Greek (it is not required); to enter into all outside activities since one comes to college to get it all. but not to neglect one ' s work since that is the first big answer to the why of coming to Col- lege; to wait awhile to form one ' s friendships, bu to grin at everybody lest one be dubbed a crab; to join the Y. W. C. A. (this from Miss Maddrey); to mem- orize and carry out all injunctions as to conduct laid down in Handbook (this from Miss Kernodle). Having successfully passed through the foregoing period of necessary torture, the bewildered audience, after the College song was sung, were shown the stunts representative of the various phases of col- lege life as it is rumored to be. most of the appreci- ation coming from behind the footlights. Here right before the audience such girls as Katie Pridgen. Artelee Puett. Ouida Watson, and Jessie McKee were transformed from awe-inspiring lawbreakers to model grinds with wings. The Y. W. C. A. in three scenes of about ten minutes, took the new girls through the entire program of extraction, from the suitcase-carrying period to days of entertainment, and on to the great day when the individual dollar becomes a part of the Y. W. C. A. ' s Social Wealth. For the benefit of those who had never been to a ball game one was acted out that made such wild things as hockey tournaments seem about as excit- ing as a game of checkers. The shades of the gen- tlemen looking from the gilt frames on the wall must have been startled to see the things they saw; and could they have heard the noise inflicted on the audience by those twenty-five pairs of healthy lungs— but why deal in idle speculations? The work of the two societies was represented by a silent debate in which the Cornelians were upheld by Misses Long and Goforth. and the Adelphians by Misses Burns and BIythe. Because of the facial contortions of Miss Goforth and the graceful use of Miss Long ' s fan. the decision was rendered in favor of the Cornelians. The audience was in the dark as to the nature of the question, but the Adelphian " Yea " could not overcome the opposition of the Cornelian " Nay. " The judges were guided in their decision by the old adage, " Actions speak louder than Between the stunts Miss George ' s chorus sang enough parodies and original songs to make them- selves famous in a single night. After the stunts and songs were " Passed by the Students Bored of Censorship " — so ran the notice— the players and the played-to went downstairs where the Sophomores, dressed as little boys and girls, served ice cream and cake in college colors, yellow and white. The Sophomores. Juniors, and Seniors sang to the three hundred and thirty lavender and white Freshmen songs of wisdom, consolation, glad- ness and sorrow, the Seniors finishing the evening with — We were here last year And here the year before; Had to come back this year If we never come back any more. When we ' re here we are as happy as can be For we arc the Seniors of the Normal family. Juniors. Sophomores. Freshmen, too. Here ' s our love to all of you. Greetings from the White and Blue. Class of Nineteen Hundred Seventeen. " OMSeNSE MOW AND THEN- r BILLYS There are three kinds of Billys, two of which the most of us have been exposed to. We meet Billy number one soon after our arrival here. He is the Initiation host and feeds himself well from one year to the next, so that he may be able to do gracefully the Magnetic Dip and other varia- tions of " Pathetic Dancing. " Now he is through for this season and goes into winter quarters while his victims retreat from the battle- field with torn sashes, pale cheeks, and weak constitutions. The next Billy comes directly after the reign of terror, or in mathe- matical terms, the final tests. Very frequently his appearance is fol- lowed by a shower bath for those who are near the receiver. He, like some of his victims, has tired of the old way of spelling his name, and now he signs himself Billet-doux. To protect yourself from the Animal, build about you a fence of twelve hours of study to four of sleep. If you are anxious about the third Billy, I can tell you that he does not grow in the Normal Bronx. He is a rare, sensitive specimen that does not flourish in an abnormal atmosphere. Perhaps if you asked some young lady who knows all the angles and perpendicular lines in the parlor, she could identify his genus. I ' % .

This is evident to even the most casual visitor to the Normal. For they are everywhere; they strew the walks, choke the grass, fill up the mud puddles, and punc- ture the tires of passing automobiles. We do not have time to wonder where all these hairpins come from, but for the benefit of the casual visitor an explanation might be given in this wise. A short downpour occurs during the two or three minutes immediately preceding breakfast. There is a cessation of about half an hour; after which, precipitation begins again and increases steadily until the intermission between the second and third periods. This is the flood tide; and after it is over the walk to the postofflce is strewn with debris. After this the downpour steadily becomes lighter, chiefly for lack of ma- terial, until by nightfall the rain is almost imperceptible. But, to take an utilitarian view of the subject, here is a splendid opportunity for one of those persons who delight in compiling unneces- sary figures. It would be a delightfully intricate problem to figure out just how many miles would be covered if all the hairpins on the Normal campus at a given time were placed end to end in a straight line. Surely some one will take this opportunity to distinguish herself. r SOME EXAMINATION QUESTIONS 1 .

Colli] A FALSE ALARM With the sound of Hght bell still ringing in her ears and drowsily mur- muring to herself, " report for— rehearsal— at— 6:30 " she fell asleep.— (Several hours have elapsed). She awoke with a start feeling that a bell which had just stopped ringing had waked her. " Oh, that must have been the 6:30 bell— and of all things to be late the very first morn- ing. " (Now, you must know. Dear Reader, that this little Freshman had been given a— speak it softly— very small part in a Literary Society play, and as this was her first ventuie she very naturally felt that the reputation of the Freshman class — nay, the whole society, rested upon her.) Meanwhile she had flung on her clothes and, without taking time to verify her conjecture by the clock, she fairly plunged out of the house. Hair, middy tie and shoestrings streamed, but what were such minor things at so important a moment? She thought as she sped down the walk it was strangely dark for 6:30 " but then it ' s always dark so much later in winter, " she thought. Arriving breathless at the society hall she was surprised at finding it dark and empty. Well, she need not have hurried so; maybe the old girls— " weren ' t they just precious? " -had been detained. She sat there in that dark room all alone, but happy in think- ing of how graciously she would assure the apologizing tardy ones that it was " perfectly all right. " But no one came. Gradually the glamour waned until with a sigh she left. A changed girl it was who returned to that room; righteous indigna- tion was expressed in every feature. She sat down on the edge of the bed to think it over— " mean old things " ; " poor kind of a joke " ; " some day they ' d " — she never finished it for her glance fell on the clock and IT WAS 4:30 ! With one grunt of disgust she slipped into bed— clothes, shoes and all ! x ONE ON YOU Freshman (to another Freshman on returning from Hygiene exam.): " Under what head did you put colds? " Other Freshman: " Oh! I put that under confectious diseases. " New girl: " I ' m not afraid of taking measles. I ' ve had it before. " Old girl: " That ' s nothing. I ' ve had prep, algebra before. " Professor (on Junior History): " Girls, you are going through life with closed eyes. " Voice from rear: " With closed books, you mean. " Freshman, wishing to buy some solidified alcohol: " Mr. Lewis, please give me three boxes of petrified gasoline. " Professor of Physics: " What is a vacuum? " Junior: " I have it in my head, but cannot get it out. " Junior (to Freshman): " Have you ever taken chloroform? " Freshman: " No: who teaches it? " Training School child: " I don ' t want to come to school any more. " Senior: " Why don ' t you want to come? " Pupil: " I can ' t learn how to spell; you keep changing the words on me. " A little Training School girl who had been told to bring to school an essay of two hundred and fifty words on the bicycle, wrote the following: " My auntie has a bicycle. One day she went out for a ride. When she got about a mile from home, her dress caught in the chain and threw her off and broke her wheel. I guess this is about fifty words, and my auntie used the other two hundred words while carrying her bicycle home. " Professor: " This species of plant belongs to the azalea family. " Aspiring Freshman: " Oh, yes, I see. You are taking care of it for them while they are away. " English Teacher: " What tense do I use when I say, " I was beautiful? " Smart student: " Remotest Past.

ANT AMANDA RHOADS. p y WILSON ELECTED BY NORMAL STUDENTS Young Women Had Campaign and Elec- tion Yesterday Afternoon on College Campus VOTED IN BY A BIG MAJORITY Greensboro. N. C. Nov. 5 — " He kept us out of the war " helped to elect Wilson by a large majority in the voting of the students of the State Normal College yesterday. The large body of young women of the State assembled here. 725 of them, had dem- onstrations on the campus yesterday for both Demo- cratic and Republican candidates and also a suffrage demonstration. Contrary to the procedure of mere men, the campaign speeches were made after the voting. The vote for Wilson was 538, and for Hughes, 67. The first event of election day as celebrated by the student body was a great parade with political banners flying. As the paraders crossed the Walker Avenue bridge they dropped their tickets in a clothes basket. At Curry court there was a joint debate; Miss Margaret Blythe, Miss Carrie Goforth and Miss McBride Alexander were the speakers for the Demo- crats, and for the Republicans. Miss Frances Al- bright. Miss Estelle Dillon, and Miss Gladys Em- The young ladies proved that they are little dif- ferent from mere men in their attitude toward po- litical speeches, for when one Democratic speaker cried out that Republicanism stands for a " return to the repulsive rule of Roo paused in her alliteration for again " and promises — " so supplied " resurrection.
