The night was bitter cold. Slowly the moon rose, shedding its cold, bright light on the little clearing in the pines. The white snow reflecting the moonlight gave a ghostly appearance to the lonely, desolate spot. The wind from the hills to the north whistled thru the pine trees. The snapping of twigs made more appar- ent the intensity of the cold. From time to time the shrill cry of some animal pierced the blanket of oppressive still- ness. Suddenly, from the shadow of the trees, a figure emerged. It moved slowly, as if heavily burdened, looking neither to the right nor to the left. The moon- light revealed the figure to be a man, a trapper with his furs on his back. Under his huge bundle the man ' s steps faltered. Reaching the center of the clearing he stopped, removed his burden, and looked about. The mournful hoot, of an owl nearby, sounded, followed by the sighing of the wind. The man shouldered his pack and moved on again. On into the shadows ; his heavy boots creaked and resounded on the frozen snow. Arriving at the top of a long hill he stopped again. Down before him, at the bottom of the hill, stretched a large lake, nestled in between the hills. The clear, wind-swept ice reflected like a mir- ror the neighboring hills, and woodland patches on their sides. He stood still for a moment looking at the lake of glass below him, then started slowlv down the hill. The man came to a cedar lowland where logs and branches lay partly hid- den in the snow. Suddenlj ' he stumbled, lost his balance, and fell heavily with one leg beneath him. For some time he lay motionless, apparently without life, then stirred and tried to move. He tried to move the leg that had doubled under him and did not give up the pain- ful attempts until both legs were stretched out in front of him. A friend- ly tree nearby afforded a rest for his back. The man looked ahead, a cold, hard gleam in his eye. Silently he sat gazing ahead. Then gradually the gleam in his eye softened and became almost kindly; his whole body seemed to relax. He relieved himself of his heavy knap- sack, and, as if preparing himself for something, settled into a more comfort- able position. He took a pipe from his pocket, filled and lighted it. A faint smile played about his mouth and into his eyes came a far away look. He seemed to be dreaming of other lands. Slowly the shadows lengthened. Silently, one by one, the snowflakes be- gan to fall. The cold grew more bitter. In the distance an owl hooted, then all was silent. ■ — A. Gonser. Ten THE ACADEMY The Boundary Line. Day was drawing on in the little Mexi- can town of Ojinaga. Not day, as we in the United States speak of it, the day that comes with the rising of the sun, but quite the reverse ; day that comes with the sinking into the bluish, purple, Tuxham hills, of the great ball of fire that a few hours before scorched and burned all in its path. Ojinaga ever was a meagre excuse for a town. It boasted of only one great advantage: it was only four hours jour- ney, by the bus, from Tia Juana. For surely no one would boast of a location, set low in the surrounding hills where hardly a breath of air stirred, year in and year out ; a place with no water sup- ply except three or four wells and no drainage but a weary little stream which became only a scar on the land during the hottest season. There was but one street, crooked and unattractive, but still a street. At the upper end was the resi- dential district. Few people dwelt here and only the rambling palacio, where Don Blanquet had once resided, marked it as the district of the " better homes. " Tov ards the other end of the street, near the foul smelling stream, were stores and cafes and saloons. Each lit- tle, dilapidated building had its white- washed false front. In the shade of these buildings, or behind sheltering bill- boards, telling of past or coming bull fights, were built the squatty adobe houses of the peons. The houses, and, the swarthy dwellers as well, were piti- ful reflections of poverty. No one knew and no one cared how his neighbor ex- isted. If one lived by stealing and did not get caught, well and good. If one lived by gambling or cheating his neigh- bor at cards he was held clever. If one cheated at cards with you however, his life was yours. And many were the brawls in which the flashing stillettos sent the painted, half-cast women scurry- ing in fear for their lives. And follow- ing each drunken fracas the rising sun would witness one or more new addition to the little uncharted grave yard, wait- ing to receive the victims of such affairs. It was five o ' clock in the afternoon and people began to venture into the street. Day was beginning. When the sun gets low in Ojinaga it becomes ever so slightly cooler and there seems to be fewer flies and gnats in the air. Life in the town begins each day at this hour and lasts far into the night. The saloons and cafes open up their doors. Each little restaurant has its piano, with the boards taken off, it ' s twanging banjo and screeching saxaphone; and each place has its dancing girls, some of Spanish blood, some American women, but for the most part half Spanish, half Indian, painted and rouged women of the streets whose paramount passions are hilarity and pulque. In the midst of this flotsam and jet- sam of humanity lived Juana Robledo and her little consumptive brother, Ra- mon, the children of gentle folk. The death of their parents had only served to bring them closer together, even though Juana, scarcely more than a child, had to work as kitchen girl in a little cafe to earn pennies for bread. True, she might have made more had she dared to act as waitress or dancing girl, but in the back of the cafe it was safe, not so in front. Juana and Ramon were fairly happy. (Juana ' s black eyes were always smiling when she was with her brother. If only he would get better, if only they could afford to move north into the hills of the Estados Unidos, all would be perfect. Came this dawn of day and the dilapi- dated screen door of the kitchen wherein Juana was busy, noislessly opened and the lithe figure of a boy entered, crept up behind and tenderly covered her eyes with his hands. " Julio! " " Juanita, lover, " he whispered. " You have been longer than usual, " and she questioned him with her black eyes. " I know. But look, I bring home more than usual, " Julio said, boyishly display- ing the coppers earned as jockey on the track at Tia Juana. The girl ' s eyes became sad. Each time he came back glowing with hope THE ACADEMY Eleven and pride at what be brought. For had not Juana promised to marry him, Julio, when together they had saved enough to move, leaving the heat and stench and squalor of Ojinaga? Enough to go where little Ramon might have treatment under American doctors. She loved Julio truly but she saw how slowly the money came in and she knew that it would be years and vears before they could save the needed sum. She realized this, but big- hearted, unselfish Julio did not and his irrepressible joy and hope made her sad. " And how is little brother? " Julio asked. Together, hand in hand, they ran toward Ramon ' s shaded cot. He saw them coming and the tightly drawn skin of his face grew more taut as he grinned from ear to ear. For he loved Julio as a brother. So the three lived on ; Ramon grad- ually becoming weaker and weaker, Juana working with all the strength in iier little body and cheering her little brother between tears of discouragement and bodily fatigue, and Julio, ever pa- tient, working day and night to increase their little capital. Then one day, just before the hot sea- son w hich they all dreaded, the horse that Julio rode won. It was a big race, the last one of the season, and men had placed much money on it. The owner of the horse, in a burst of generosity, gave Julio a huge sum of money, more than Julio had ever dreamed of in his wildest dreams. How slowly the bus to Ojinaga drove that day ! Clutching his treasure, Julio planned every step of the journey they could now take, planned the cottage he would build, with the screened porch for Ramon. He wondered how much of his wealth it would take to start a little busi- ness and how long it would be before Ramon was well and strong and old enough to join him as a partner. Juana should never again be compelled to do any work, but just walk about their lit- tle home and garden, making everything bright with her presence. Oh, the dreams he dreamed and the things he planned on the homeward drive that day ! They would leave Ojinaga at once. How- happy the three of them would be ! It seemed to the anxious heart of Julio that he never would arrive at Ojinaga, but after what seemed days of travel through the dust and heat, the bus drew up in the little town. Joyously he jumped to the ground and fairly rushed to the home of Juana. She stood, waiting in the doorway, quiet, a sad and solemn figure. Julio stopped. What did all the strange silence mean ? Juana and Julio have left the hated Ojinaga. But each year, just at the be- ginning of the hot season they come back. Hand in hand, they may be seen walking towards the little gravevard, and they visit a little grave with the simple inscription, " Ramon. " The Mexican air, grim reaper, had had its wav. W. H. S. Twelve THE ACADEMY THE ACADEMY Thirteen Suppose Suppose my friends that Dr. Pratt should give no warning talks, Suppose instead we ' d be allAwed to go for morning walks. Suppose that we should hear when we reach Mrs. George ' s room, Oh, throw away your geometries, and feel no more this gloom. Suppose in morning classes, just fac- ulty performed. And all the rest were free to do just as they wished, unharmed. Suppose the trustees never came except to treat the class, With chocolates and sheepskins for every lad and lass. And now suppose our library should just be set apart. For couples there to sit, and talk of mat- ters of the heart. Don ' t you suppose that school would be one perfect round of bliss, And make you feel that you could give each teacher a — handshake. — Harold Schmidt- Fourteen THE ACADEMY An Experience in Camp. I ran as fast as I could from the office down to the cabin where I bunked. Nothing but stillness greeted me. My first intention was to go to bed, but the cabin was so still that after my night ' s experience, I was quite shaky. Of course, I didn ' t want to let the fellows know I was scared, so I made myself believe that the excitement of my night ' s adventure ought to be shared with my colleagues. " Hey, fellows, are you awake? " As I look back, now, the an- swers to this query came so fast that anybody could have seen that the fellows were only pretending to sleep. At the time, however, I was so excited and things had happened to me that night that made the too ready reply unnotice- able. Everybody was firing questions at me, so, that I must have started my story backwards, when I espied Charley Garry among the foremost questioners. " Well, how in the name of thunder did vou get here? I thought the sheriff ' s deputy got you, " I exclaimed. Charley grinned sheeplishly. " You know when I beat it from the sheriff I trailed after you, and when he took you into the office I lay on the outside and listened. As soon as you escaped from the office with Razz, I ducked for thp cabin. When the sheriff and his men came to search the cabin, I got in Fred Miller ' s trunk and Fred locked it, and then swore up and down thai he had lost the keys to his trunk. " At this point Razz, Colonel Hoare and Mike Knappe entered. " Come on and let ' s go in Sam ' s room and there Rusty can tell us the story of his life and a few other jokes. " Whereupon we all adjourned Id Sam ' s room. I was a little calmer now and not half so afraid, as there was plenty ,of light and lots of fellows around. I took a deep breath and began : " You know when you fellows talked about snipe-hunting I always wanted somebody to take me. Well, tonight right after mess. Razz took Charlev and me up to the office and told us that we were going snipe-hunting. He said there was a little danger as it was against the law, but the sheriff wasn ' t very active, so that was all right. We were to have six fellows as beaters. We were to go to a swamp, the location of which Charley and I knew, and there find a fence. About this time the beaters were supposed to form a circle and with us as the hub, to close in around. The snipe would run along the fence and we were to stand at the end of the fence, one holding a lighted lantern, the other a bur- lap bag. The snipe would be scared and when they came near enough, which was the beaters job, they would be blinded by the light and would run past it into the bag. This may have seemed fishy, but I was a new fellow and coming from the city, I knew nothing of the great north woods. " " Well, everything went O. K. until we passed Todd ' s cottage, when suddenly a man confronted us. Charley and I were so scared that we didn ' t say anything, and the funny part of it was, that the man didn ' t so much as move a finger ; jUst stood there and stared at us until we were out of sight. It ' s that swamp right in back of the cottage after Todd ' s. You fellows often go down there to get moss to pack fish in. We floundered around in there for about 15 minutes. Every step you take, you sink in up to your hips. Believe me, I was getting hotter every minute, while my temper was rising with my bodily exertion. I began to think it was a put up job and i told Charley so. Charley said he thought we ought to go back, so he started walking west. I told him we would never reach the lake by walking west. He insisted he was right. I had been down in the swamp the day before, so I knew the lay of the land and that the lake was to the east of us. I started walking east and Charley followed. We came to the lake, found the old trail, and THE ACADEMY Fifteen bj ' this time I was good and angry, as I thought sure it was a trick of the fellows, to show up my ignorance. The beaters had not put in an appearance and we had not found the fence, and I was inclined to believe that Charley had tried to get me lost in the swamp. As we approached the spot where the man had so mysteriously confronted us I thought I saw, and in this I was con- firmed by Charley, the glimmer of a lan- tern among the trees. I thought it was the beaters and fellows, coming to give us the laugh, so I suggested that we hide and wait until the fellows came nearer and then spring out and give them a scare. As Charley was not in favor of this I went on. I walked on sullenly towards the light as I expected to see the fellows snickering, but much to our — I think I can say " our " — surprise, it turned out to be another mysterious man. He stuck his lantern into our faces and, evidently satisfied, he grabbed us both by the collar and asked us what we were doing. Charley explained that we were snipe-hunting. The sherifif, as it turned out to be, said that snipe-hunt- ing was against the law, and in a solemn voice arrested us in the name of the law for breaking into a hunter ' s cabin, about ten yards distant, and stealing valuable furs. He had been informed, he said, by the people living in Todd ' s cottage that two boys with a bag and lantern committed the robbery. As we fitted the description, we would have to go to jail. He showed us the cabin and the broken padlock. We told him we were boys from Camp Cranleigh, and had not stolen the furs. He told us that the man at Todd ' s had seen us pass by an hour ago. To make sure we were the boys, he called the man from Todd ' s cottage, who turned out to be the mysterious man of our previous acquaintance. We then set out for camp. Just as we reached the crossroad at Tysson ' s there was a noise in the brush. The sheriff let go of Charley and grabbed me with his two hands. Charley darted into the brush and disappeared. I had been doing some fast thinking from the time that we were arrested. At first I wanted to beat up the sheriff, counting on Charley to help me. But he looked as if he could take about six fellows of our build and walk all over them. Now I decided to bluff the sheriff. " This is a fine put up job, " I said. " Why didn ' t you grab the other fellow ? " " Never mind the other fellow, we ' ll get him later. The woods are full of my men. You look like the worse of the two anyway. " I knew this was not so, as I am of a light build and not very strong, so I came back with : " I believe you ' re lying. " " I ' ll show you whether I ' m lying. Just for that, you stay in the Cooler two more days. It ' s the fresh guys like you, that would try a stunt like this. " This took the kink right out of me, and I meekly submitted to being led to camp. When we got to the office, the Colonel was sitting at his desk writing. " Col- onel, I ' m arrested for robbery, Charley got away. " " Who are you anyway? " inquired the Colonel. " I thought the brat didn ' t belong here, " interposed the sheriff, " he said he did though. " I nearly fell thru the floor. Razz, and Henry, the man of all work, came in and both said they didn ' t know me. When I heard Razz say he didn ' t know me, I gave up hope because, I had taken more stock in Razz than in the Colonel and Henry together. " Maybe he ' s from Camp Winnepe, let ' s call up there, " Henry suggested. " What ' s your name? " Everything was so queer and unexpected, that I must have been car- ried along by that atmosphere or else I was crazy, for I answered the first name which came into my head, and that was Paul Jones. Of course, I wasn ' t at Winnepe. While the Colonel was show- ing the sheriff the list of names of the boys at the camp. Razz edged over toward me and whispered, that I should get as close to the door as possible with- out arousing suspicion, and then make ready to run. I could have cried aloud Sixteen THE ACADEMY for joy, because I did not relish being locked up in jail with a lot of drunkards and town bums. The lantern, which the sheriff had brought, was standing near the door, lighted. I crossed over, turned it out and then sat down, and the sherifT, when he saw me go towards the door, came and sat next to me, Razz looked at me and nodded. I drew my legs up under me, and bolted out through the doorway and off the porch. The sheriff caught my foot as I went out but could not hold it, I had too much momentum to be stopped by that. Razz was right after me, shouting that I had gone toward the kitchen, and pulling me in the opposite direction. In our efforts to put more distance between us and our pursuers, we stumbled and fell many times, before we reached a deserted hut Here Razz produced a flashlight and told me to get up in the loft, which was made of pine boughs, saying that he would teli the Colonel where I was hidden, and to throw the sheriff ' off the trail. Razz left and I shook so from fear, excitement and cold, that I thought any minute I would fall down from my lofty perch and land on the hard floor below. I could hear by attentive listening the hus- tle and bustle that was going on about the camp. I heard such cries as : " Watch the boats ; have you counted them? " " Guard the road. " " Who ' s there? " " Surround the camp. " The sounds of boats being pushed into the lake and all the other noises that accom- pany a thorough search. But these sounds gradually became dim, and 1 could hear the voices and footsteps of the Colonel and the Sheriff as they ap- proached. I expected they would turn down the hill towards the cabins, but still they came on. They entered the cabin, and the Colonel explained to the Sheriff that the hut was deserted, ex- cept for a few mattresses, in the corner of the loft. The Colonel said there would be no need of looking in the cab- ins, as the boys would turn the culprit over as soon as he appeared, they being as hot on the search as the sheriff ' s deputies. " The only place he could be would be here, " said the Colonel. " Here ' s a chair that you can stand on to look up into the loft. " I grew cold all over. I was sure the beating of my heart or the trembling of my body was shown by the rustling of the pine boughs. A cold clammy sweat was all over my body, and I then realized that Razz had failed to reach the Colonel and tell him of the plans he had made. The Sheriff " was on the chair, poking up into the loft with the Colonel ' s cane. I had my legs spread apart, and at the first poke, the cane came up between my legs. The Sheriff was poking a second time, when Razz hollered: " Colonel, I ' ve got the boy, we found him. " But it was too late! The cane hit my leg. The sheriff reached his hand up, grabbed my trousers, and yanked. I came down with a thump. The sheriff lost his balance and came down on top of me. I was up in a flash, only to run full tilt into the Colonel ' s stomach. He caved in with an " Vh ! " Before I could recover from my second collision, the sheriff ' had me. I was taken down to the office and Razz came in. The Sheriff was mad as a hornet, that the Colonel and Razz had tried to help me escape. He told them he had a good mind to put them in the Cooler too. Razz and the Colonel con- fessed, that I was a member of the camp, and that they tried to help me escape. They put me in a room adjoining and closed the door. I picked up a funny paper, tried to read the jokes, gave up, then started to whistle; that failing, I sat still and listened. Razz told how the camp would get a black name if I was put in jail, how my father and mother would feel, and was all but crying him- self, when the sheriff said, that, if I would pay for the furs that were stolen, and hush money for the sheriff, he would free me. At this point I was brought into the oft ' ice, told of the terms, and asked if my father would pay $350, if I was to be let off. I said father would pay, and after thanking the sheriff for such lenient terms I came down here. " THE ACADEMY Seventeen Nobody had spoken or moved since I began. At the termination of my story, there was a moment ' s silence, and then the most uproarious laughter imaginable. What I was finally able to gather be- tween periods of laughing, was that the whole night ' s experience had been a " frame " from beginning to end. It was the initiation that a city boy must take before he can be received in good fel- lowship with the rest. —Russell U ' lrth, ' 24 Thrown Away. A figure moved along the river bank, moved slowly on towards the splashing waters of the dam; the dam whose waters furnished power to light the big city nearby in its gayety. To the east the moon rose, small and cold, and looked upon the city, upon the waters of the river, frozen, except at the dam, and upon the lonely figure painfully making its way beneath the ice-clad boughs of the trees that hugged the river ' s bank. Had one seen the face of the traveler he might have been startled. For it was not the face of a man, but that of a boy, a boy with the responsibilities of a man thrust upon his shoulders. It was war ! He had been just a " doughboy. " He had run away from home, lied about his age, and enlisted. His stay in camp had been short and he had left with his regiment, one of the first. Now a wooden crutch tried to take the place of a leg, shot away in France. Back in America again, he had found himself without work. And why should people help him ? There were many others worse off than he. The moon was high in the cold, star- less heaven by the time the figure had reached the center of the narrow planks that bridged the roaring waters of the dam. The moon looked down and won- dered why the figure paused. And in the spring, when the ice broke up, men on the magnificently arched con- crete bridge in the city below paused, and wondered at the wooden crutch that slowly passed beneath them. W. H. S.

We left Gargantua, a little Canadian town on the north shore of Lake Supe- rior, early one September morning. There was a high sea rolling, but the lit- tle staunch steamer Manitoa weathered it bravely. The barometer was falling and the captain said we were in for a real equinoctial storm. We certainly were. This storm acted very much like a hur- ricane. It blew very hard for about a half hour and then stopped; after this period of thirty minutes it was absolutely windstill ; there wasn ' t a breath of air stirring. But during that half hour the wind blew so hard that the entire lake was a seething mass of foam. It was now about seven o ' clock in the evening. We ate supper and an hour afterward went to bed. At five o ' clock that morning I was awakened by the cry of " Everybody on Deck. " I dressed in a hurry and when I got on deck discovered a very heavy fog. One of the deckhands told me we were totally lost. " How very nice. " Suddenly like a thunderbolt out of a blue sky we heard a voice come out of the fog. " Reverse, you ' re running right on the rocks ! " Then we saw the rocks loom up in the fog like phantoms veiled in white. The entire boat shook as we reversed. In a few minutes the fog lifted, not entirely, but enough for us to see shore. We were but a quarter of a mile from the rocks and the rocks were the same distance from shore. Who was it who called so mysterious- ly out of the fog? Who was it who saved the Manitoa and probably every- body aboard from destruction. We don ' t know and we never will. — Joseph Uihlein.

S. Tivent -tzvo THE ACADEMY In an Indian Chiefs Wigwam. As the sun rose over the mountain top its beams lighted the tall upright figures of three riders, mounted on wiry mus- tangs. As they drew nearer, their horses carefully picking their way among the rocks of the steep defile, they proved to be warriors of the Chotoc tribe. They rode in single file, proudly, without fal- tering they came straight towards an enemy ' s village, that of the Cherokees, which was spread out on the plain be- low. Evidently they were expected. It was an important day for both tribes. The liberty of both tribes was at stake. By sundown one tribe would be subject to the other. The decision would not be made by force of arms, but by a game of chance. Soon the three warriors reached the village, the leader, proving himself by his age and dignity to be the chief, the others merely escorts. Gravely they were received and led to the main tent. Within the tent the Cherokee chief re- ceived them ; about him were the medi- cine men and the older men of the tribe. Guests and hosts seated themselves In dian fashion on the soft fur robes with which the floor was covered. The walls were of buffalo robes of fine quality. From the ridge pole hung many grue- some scalps, trophies of war. Four moc- casins lay side by side in a sort of semi- circle in the middle of the tent. There was an air of tenseness. One of the older men detached himself from the group and gravely sat down within the semicircle. The two chiefs grunted assent, and sat down outside the semi- circle. The old brave began rapidly to shift a bullet, under and over, up and down, between and alongside of the moc- casins, then suddenly stopped. The two chiefs watched him with keen eyes. The stranger chief chose the first moccasin; the host, the third. To the stranger was awarded the first count. Again the war- rior repeated his motions. Again the chiefs chose, this time the host chose rightly. Greater grew the tension. The next choice would decide the fate of one tribe or the other. Again the perfor- mance was repeated amid a profound silence and the choice made. With an expressionless face, the stranger chief arose, his companions with him, silently left the tent, mounted the waiting mus- tangs, and rode off toward the distant range. He had lost, his tribe had lost its liberty, but to no one of his enemies was given the satisfaction of seeing his grief. — John Hume. Essay on Spanish.

I was walking down Fifth avenue the other day after a workout at the g}m. It was about 5:30 P. M. and the walks were crowded. While looking in at a shop window I happened to bump into a man and knocked his hat off. I picked the hat up, muttering an apolog) ' , and I found myself face to face with my old classmate, Tad Berresford. He was de- lighted to see me and fairly dragged me to his rooms at the Ritz. On the way there both of us were too surprised to say much, but immediately we were in the room he said : " Well George, old boy, how are you ? I have been reading quite a good deal about you in the papers. Tell me about that last fight for the cham- pionship against Baker. I certainly was glad to see that you won. I wanted to come to the fight, but I couldn ' t get away. " " Oh the fight was close. Baker al- most floored me a few times. Tell me, how are you getting along with that last experiment of yours? I ' ll bet that one of these days you will reach Mars. Re- member how we laughed when about fif- teen years ago at the old M. U. S., we talked about communication with Mars? I wonder how the old school is getting along? " " Probably they are getting along very nicely, " said Tad, " the last time I was there they had just completed the new- buildings up on Downer Avenue, with w D n d e r f u 1 equipment — comfortable rooms, a half dozen tennis courts, a large athletic field for football and track, and an immense gymnasium. " I always wished that the school could put up new buildings, " said 1, " Have you seen any of the others who went to school with us ? I haven ' t seen Bill Stud- ley in ten years. You know I sometimes wish I were back there in the old school again. " Tad became thoughtful, then burst out laughing. " Why come to think of it, Studley, who is now physician to King George V, happens to be in town and I think that the rest of the fellows said that they would probably come to see him. Tell you what, I ' ll give a dinner and invite all the old boys — we ' ll have a regular reunion. Be down in the dining hall at seven tomorrow evening. " I came a little late for dinner and when I was ushered into the private dining room everybody was there. W ho could that man with the horn-rimmed glasses be? Sure enough, it was none other than Kommrusch, now art-editor of the Times. And that fellow over there m the corner — he looked familiar? That black hair and that head — it must be N ' eaver. And so it was. Weaver, after many struggles, had risen to the position of General Manager of the New York Central. And who could that distin- guished looking man be surely he did not belong here ? Imagine my surprise when Tad Berresford came up to me, greeted me heartily, and told me that one of my old friends was dying to see me, in the meantime leading me in the direction of the distingushed looking stranger. I told Tad that I had never seen the man be- fore, and told him to be sure and intro- duce me. He laughed, and I remember that at the time I saw nothing to laugh at. Then I was introduced to Dr. Rudolf Winnacker, German Ambassador to the United States, who had just arrived in this country. Grown more dignified and stately he was a wonderful diplomat. Then I heard a familiar voice in my ear. I turned, and there stood Dr. Studley. It was the same old Billy of our school days except that he had grown taller, a little heavier, and had a crop of gray hair. He was just as dignified as ever, and sight of him brought back school- day memories. All that was missing to make the picture complete was the famil- iar figure of Dr. Pratt. After all, those were the good old days, thought I, and I left that evening with pleasant memories of the good old past. — G. Brumder. Twenty-six THE ACADEMY George Gustav Brumder Who can tell me how George spends his time out of school? Did I hear some one say " Page the Girls ' High School for such information. " We do know that he is a great fellow in school, and in all school activities he has had a leading part. He has made many friends among his fellow students who will watch with interest his career at Cornell. Although he has been a member of the Boys ' High School for several years during the last two years he has been consistently found in the Girls ' High School. He has never told us what course of study he is tak- ing over there but we have our sus- picions. Arthur Beattys Berresford Tad is the student of our class. Where ere we go we see this poor lad working until we fear that he is losing weight and will soon look like an after dinner tooth pick. In addition to his class work he is busy on several wireless inventions, and is assuring us that we will be able to talk with the departed spirits before very long. Some day his wireless knowledge will place him in the Cabinet as the new- ly created Secretary of Radio. Then we ' ll say, " We knew it was in you, Tad, and we are proud of you. " John Durr Buemming Milwaukee University School was in- deed fortunate when John Buemming en- rolled with us. John came to us after two stringent years at St. John ' s Military Academy. Through consistent applica- tion to his studies he has succeeded in completing the regular high school course of study in three and a half years. Because of his executive ability and his interest in the advancement of the school he has done some remarkable service. We were sorry to give him up in Feb- ruary, 1922, but glad that he was able to graduate and start his work at the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. We have re- ceived favorable reports from him there, and trust the good work will continue. THE ACADEMY Twenty-seven Fritz Gustav Kommrusch We don ' t know yet who walks to school with Kommrusch every morning, but he has promised to send invitations to all of us. He is a nice quiet lad who never asks foolish questions. He should have his voice cultivated or else stop using it altogether, for it is too strong for any place smaller than an auditorium. Kommrusch is always ready to do his part in school activities. He worked hard in athletics and for the Academy he has supervised the art work. Some day he will be Milwaukee ' s leading com- mercial artist. Clarence Albert Martin We are glad that nothing happened to the submarine on which Martin served for a part of the war, otherwise we might have been deprived of his company in the Senior class. Martin joined us late in the vear in order to finish out his cred- its for college entrance. Unfortunately the war delayed his school career, but he was determined that he would realize his ambition in spite of the war, and he is doing it. He has made good with us, and we are looking forward to his success in the University and in the profession of his choice. Harold Foster Schmidt The happy-go-lucky bunch of M. U. S. has had a splendid demonstration in con- centration and hard work in the person of Harold Schmidt. Schmidt came to us at the beginning of the second term with the determination to do a whole year ' s work in a half year. He is an- other member of our class whose educa- tion was interrupted by the world war. He has done well, in spite of his heavy course of study and the fact that he has used much of his time out of school for work in a business office. Nevertheless he was a contributor to the Academy and his contributions are decidedly worth while. Twenty-eight THE ACADEMY Howard Smiley Weaver " Buck, " to most of us, is the man of silence. He is a rather regular attend- ant and leaves us as soon as his as- signed work is completed. Never do we see him at any of the school activities and seldom does he speak until he is spoken to. Thanks to one of our mem- bers we have exhibit A of how Weaver spends his time, and you have only to look to find this evidence in another sec- tion of the Academy. We all agree that he should ask us to accompany him on a hike some fine day. William Harrison Studley William Harrison Studley, otherwise known as Bill, entered the M. U. S. in 1918, as a fresh freshie, from the Nor- mal Grades. And now Bill is leaving us after four years of hard work. Next year he expects to start his study of medicine in the University of Wisconsin, after which he will continue this subject at Columbia University, N. Y. C. Bill, as can be seen from the twinkle in his eye, is one of those ever smiling boys, but with an excellent executive ability. It was because of this latter quality that Studley was given the re- sponsible position of Editor of this Academy. But the best testimony of his work and ability that we can furnish are the pages of this annual, which, with his guiding hand, the Milwaukee Univer- sity School was able to publish this year. Rudolf August Winnacker Few of us would recognize the Rudy that came to us from Germany in Jan- uary, 1920. It didn ' t take long for us to know him and like him. He immediately entered into the life of the school, and in every activity he has done well. To Rudy some of the credit must be given for making our daily news sheet a suc- cess. He ably assisted Schuster in be- ginning the paper, and after Eugene left us Rudy ' s determination to carry the paper through, was largely responsible for our regular editions. THE ACADEMY Twenty-nine Eugene Schuster Eugene Schuster entered the Milwau- kee University School in September, 1920, as a Junior, and took his place in the Class of 1922. His efforts in pro- moting school spirit and activities were everlasting. In his first year here he made many good li terary contributions to the Academy. In his Senior year Eugene was far more active than in his Junior. To him is given the credit for having created that humorous sheet, " THE M. U. S. DAILY GRUNT, " and a noble creation it was. However, in the first part of November Chicago specialists informed Eugene that he would have to undergo a slight operation and then go to the sunny South to recuperate. Instead of quitting school, as would so many of us, he decided to graduate in January in- stead of June. After this Eugene liter- ally " worked like a dog " so that he re- ceived his diploma at that time. Now Eugene is " conductoring " in Phoenix, Arizona, as a pastime. He was a valuable man arid we are sorry he was not able to put forth his efforts on the Academy of this year. The. f r -LJ- S. Z " . ' Thirty THE ACADEMY N On u O 1— ( z D S2 zra k.

Can you imagine a school like this with- out one? Why, say, if there had been no Junior Class this last year tell me where our basketball coach would have secured those two guards, Baerwald and Streiss- guth, who so ably assisted in downing our opponents. Where too, could he have gotten a neucleus like Zinn, Frank- furth, and Bernhard, around which he built the second team. I ' m sure the Sophomores were too busy amusing the Freshmen to bother much with basket- ball, and the Seniors were heroicly striv- ing to maintain the high standards set by the former Senior classes, so just stop and think what would have hap- pened had we not been here. The Honor Roll has always been am- ply decorated with the names of various ambitious members of our class. This goes to show we are not stupid or lazy. Then looking over the cast of the Dra- matic Club presentation, we also find sev- eral names of third year men, and if you turn to the front of this book you will find several names with a ' 23 after them showing that they belong to this great and honorable class. I do not care to impress too much on vour minds what a great class we are, for members of the other classes might become envious and wish to join us, and we certainly do not want to deprive other classes of their learned members so I will stop, but let me say one more thing, and this is for the benefit of the Sophs. Do not try to become Seniors without first being a Junior, for if you do you will miss a lot of fun, and also a good chance to serve your school. — BacJiman ' 23. Thirfy-tivo THE ACADEMY CO CO U m oC O o X a, O CO a c. w H CO J z o s K m J X H D n THE ACADEMY Thirty-three Class of 1924, The Senior Class imply that of course they are the best class ; the Seniors always are the best. The Junior Class admit in last year ' s Academy that they are the best. The Freshman Class, as is shown by their every action, seem to think that thev are the best in school as in every- thing else. But we do not propose to come forth and claim our just laurels. If we did. however, we would say something like this : We are the best students, as you can see by the fact that we usually have over half the class on the Honor Roll and we easily won the Herzfeld Cup for the highest average the first semes- ter, this being the first time the cup has been won by other than a Senior Class. In athletics too, we have made a fine showing. Two of the best men on the first team are Sophomores, R. Gust and VVirth. Consider also that F. Gust, star guard of the second team, belongs to our ranks. Then too, we have the champion class basketball team. While hampered by small size we stood out in the Indoor Meet. In all other forms of athletics we are good. We have taken part in every activity of the school. We furnished four men to the cast of " The Magistrate, " Wirth, H. Kommrusch, R. Gust and Halstead, while F. Gust acted as assistant stage manager, scene shifter, call boy, property man, and water boy. In fact " We put our foot in every- thing. " As we said before this is merely what we might say were we not so overcome with modesty that we hardly dare lift our voices. —If ' ;;;. Halstead. Thiriy-four THE ACADEMY ON U m Kbj O B z 5z fcW Ci.

No- body ever thinks to praise a " Freshman, " so we have to toot our own horns. We are not so bad, even if we do get into mischief occasionally. We are still green and tender, but give us time, you others, ril wager you upper classmen wish you could lose your dignity once in a while and get into scrapes (and out of them) as we do. We are willing to pay the penalty. What more can you ask? As a class, we are fourteen strong ; strong in basketball, for eleven of us played, ten of us for at least one quar- ter of a game against our " foes. " Of course we need some polishing ; but we will get that when we reach the higher life of Sophomores. We got into the indoor and outdoor meets, took our share of baseball, and are called " freshie sharks " in tennis. " The Hoffies " can call " anybody " in swimming and J. Uihlien has a great future as a pugilist. Not such a bad athletic record for mere freshies. Some mention, must, of course, be made of those things learned in books. They have their place. We always have some representatives on the Honor Roll whose yearly records will compare favor- ably with those of any other class. We are not disheartened by th e start we have made, and if we can keep the pace, we look forward to splendid finale. — John Hume. Thirty -six THE ACADEMY An Appreciation. The Girl ' s High School Department of Milwaukee University School sincerely thanks the Women ' s Service Club for its successful efforts in es- tablishing an endowment fund for this department. The constructive vi- sion of the Women ' s Service Club, which conceived and established the Girls ' High School Department, has now assured its perpetuation. Through the efforts and unselfish devotion of people with true vi- sion The Milwaukee University School has maintained its place in the van of educational progress since its foundation by Peter Englemann. By their services, the women of The Service Club have established their places among those who at various times have extended the educational horizon of tire school. In acknowledgement of this service, the students and faculty of the Girls ' High School Department express their grateful appreciation. THE ACADEMY Thirty-seven The Death of Sohrab. (A Passage from the Commentaries of a Persian Soldier) Noon There is a deathhke stiHness over all the hosts, The languid Oxus winds through the desert like some huge snake, Trying to escape the glaring rays of the sun, The Tartar army lies before my eyes like a huge beast at rest. Strange forebodings crowd my mind ; I know not why ; — But Allah is great and he commandeth over all ! Tzvo Hours Later: A challenge hath been sent to us by the Tartar host ; Brave Sohrab will meet a Persian lord in combat : My lord, Rustum, is sullen ; The Shah Nameh hath angered my lord, and Kismet hath decreed it so. Allah is great ! He will keep us safely in the palm of his hand Allah, Allah ! Evening: Allah, .Allah, praise unto thee ! Thou wilt be obeyed by all ! Kismet hath decreed it that brave Sohrab and the mighty Rustum Lett in mortal combat. The cool evening breeze fans my heated brow, The purple hills grow dimmer in the dis- tance, Another day is at an end. And so — another life; Allah! Allah is great and good. And Kismet did decree that brave Soh- rab fall, .Sohrab, the son of Rustum, and Rus- tum knew not that it was his son, But ruthlessly did he plunge the dagger into brave Sohrab ' s side; A moment — then — there was a groan As that of a lion, when pierced by the spear So skillfully aimed by the ever-alert hun- ter. And sobbing did the mighty Rustum fall to his knees, .- nd beg that he should live, But Kismet did decree that brave Sohrab die, and . llah is great ! Allah ' — Elinor Trostel. Thirty-eight THE ACADEMY What ' s The Use? Everette Smoot was a short, bulky, little man with a dusky complexion. He was clad in the threadbare, but once re- splendent uniform of a porter. Fortune had not smiled on Everette. A stingy collection of small coins was all he had to show for his work ever since morning and now it lacked but five minutes of train time when the 6:45 would rumble into the depot. Everette turned his back upon the highly colored poster of si.x girls in pink tights that hung on the wall. Stuffing his chubby hand into his pocket he drew out his entire capital and summed it up. " Jes ' $2.05 an ' here ' s Decoration day comin ' long an ' me wantin ' to go fishin ' wif Octavius Johnson, and me owin ' dat good for nuffin ' niga ' up to de boardin ' house $20.00. " Huh ! It ' s ' nough to make a persun sick, thinkin ' ob de stinginess ob some people. Ah carries der baggage all de way to de ca ' an ' den dey has de nerve to han ' me a nickle an ' say thank yo ' an ' actin ' all de time es if dey was doin ' me de greates ' favor in de worl ' . " Everette stuck his hands into his pock- ets and snorted with disgust. " An ' how ' s a hones ' persun goin ' to make a livin ' dat way? Nobody can ' t live on p ' liteness " Just then the train whistle blew, and in his hurry to get to the gates first, Ever- ette forgot to complain. He found a prosperous looking gentleman, who un- fortunately had a great deal of baggage. Everette wondered how much baggage his family would need if they all pos- sessed the amount of that gentleman. He came to the conclusion that a freight train might be large enough to carry it. The bags were new and shiny, and it seemed to Everette as though they were alive for they so easily effected an escape from his grasp. At last the corner at which the car stopped was reached. Everette put down his load with a sigh of relief. The gen- tleman fumbled around in his pockets for some seconds and finally extracted a coin and tossed it to Everette. It was a nickel ! Moreover, it was worn so thin that Everette wondered whether it was still worth five cents. He dropped it into his pocket and started for home. It is the night before Decoration Day. Everette ' s finances have not improved since we last saw him. Tomorrow he has his bill of $20 to pay, and the chances of his paying it are pretty slim. He ambles along idly looking into shop windows. Suddenly something catches his eye that appeals to him immensely. A fat, greasy looking man in a white apron and cap is performing a remark- able series of juggling with some flap- jacks that lend an appetizing odor to the night air. Everette reflects. He has only $3.00 with which to pay a $20 debt and to go on a vacation. It really isn ' t much better than nothing toward the payment of his board, but one can get a lot of things for $3.00. " Dem flapjacks sure has a powa ' ful nice smell, seems to me. Ah reckons dey don ' cos ' much. Anyhow tomorrow ' s Decoration day an ' ah reckons ah de- serves to treat maself to a good square meal. Dat bill ain ' t due till tomorrow anyhow, an ' if ah saves a little ob ma money ah can go on ma vacation jes ' de same. ' Taint no use trying to pay a $20 bill wif $3.00. " Everette enters the lunch room and it is quite probable that he will be far away on his fishing trip when his creditor comes to collect his money. — Josephine Gregory. THE ACADEMY Thirty-nine When Bushman Came to Town. 779 Davis Blvd. Shorewood, Wis., Dec. 21, 1921. Dearest Phyllis : — In my last letter I told you how some of the girls had written letters to Francis X. Bushman, and asked him to send them his photograph. They all urged me to ■write to him, too, and so I did. I think he is very handsome, don ' t you? They asked him to write his signature on the photographs, and he did. I wrote to him the other evening on my best pink sta- tionery, and got a photograph of him in this morning ' s mail. Imagine, he signed, " Sincerely yours, Francis X. Bushman. " He has the most adorable handwriting. I was so thrilled when I saw the signature. The girls said it must have been my stationery that made him sign that way. He looks perfectly won- derful in his picture, even better than he looks in the close-ups in the movies. Well, I must hurry to school now. Yours as ever, Ruth. Dec. 31, 1921. Darling Phyllis : — I " sure " was glad to get your letter for I have something exciting to tell you. You know I wrote and asked Mr. Bush- man if he thought the movies would ac- cept me. (In an indirect way I asked if he was married or had any children. He evidently didn ' t notice my questions for he said nothing about them in the letter he wrote to me.) I do hope he isn ' t married, because it would be so much more exciting if I should happen to meet him. He said from the descrip- tion I had given him of myself he thought that I must be quite a pretty girl, but he also advised me to finish school before I ever thought of going into the movies. Imagine, he wrote " Dear Ruth " instead of " Dear Mis ' : Boyd " as he did in his previous letters. 1 really am terribly thrilled. Fancy, I heard that he will be at the Majestic next month. I guess it ' s too good to be true though. If he comes I will surely have to see him. Yours, Ruth. Jan. 14, 1922. Dear Phyllis :— Just came home from the Majestic and found your letter here waiting for me. I have loads of things to tell you. The other day the girls and I went to the Majestic to see Francis X. Bush- man. He ' s so good looking, you couldn ' t possibly imagine how much ! After the performance we mustered up enough courage to meet him. I got so nervous. When I told him who I was, he said, " Very pleased to meet you. Miss Boyd. " After I had told him that I had written to him and how much I liked his letters, he only smiled and said, " I ' m afraid, Miss Boyd, that I ' ll have to tell you that my corresponding secretary, Miss Smith, always does my writing. I am entirely too busy to write to all the young girls, who write to me. " Oh, Phyllis, it was too sad. I almost fainted wh en he told me that. I was simply stunned, for when I finally realized what was happenmg I found myself staring at him rather blankly. Oh, Phyllis, it was too terrible for words. Don ' t look too closely at this letter paper for you will see lumpy places where my tears have dropped. I hope you will be able to read this letter, ' cause salt water isn ' t so very good for ink, it makes it " blurrie. " Gee, I just can ' t help it, the tears keep running down mv nose and cheeks and then drip on the paper. Well, now I ' m not going to cry about that anymore. Yours in grief, Ruth. — L. Inbusch.

She will be down in a minute. " " Well really, Mrs. Wolbert, I would prefer to wait outside, but your Christ- mas tree is so enticing that I simply can ' t resist coming in to take a peek, " ex- claimed Jimmie Keith. " My, but Santa must have been good to you folks, judging from the beautiful tree, " he exclaimed after giving the tree a once-over. " Yes, so he was, and from what Jane tells me, he didn ' t treat you so badly. Why, not many boys of your age are owners of a wonderful Stutz Bearcat. Jane says it is a beauty and rides like a bird. " " I wouldn ' t say that. Of course it is pretty nice to have a car to get about in ; but now-a-days every fellow has one. " " I suppose you are right. Times do change though. " " I really think you will have a wonder- ful time at the Hobson ' s tonight : I sup- pose you will dance, and have a gay time. I have heard rumors that the girls are going to choose one partner for the entire evening. " " Gee, that ' s kind of tough on the fel- lows. I suppose I ' ll get a lemon. " " Why, Jane, " exclaimed her mother as Jane entered the room. " When did you bob your hair? What will your father say? Who ever heard of a girl your age having her hair bobbed ? This is outrageous. I feel like making you stay home as a punishment. " Jane ' s mother stops for breath and she manages to say, " Good evening, Jimmie. " " But Mamma, I just bobbed my hair tonight. I think its very becoming and, Mamma, all the girls have bobbed hair! Don ' t you think it looks nice Jimmie? " " I shan ' t commit myself. " " Fortunately it looks well; but you cannot go to the dance. I don ' t like the sneaky way in which you did it. If you had asked me outright and received my consent, I would not object. " " All right, Mamma, " Jane replied meekly. " There ' s no use arguing now ; but just the same, please forgive me, I didn ' t mean to be sneaky about it. " " Well, I suppose I will. " And Mrs. Wolbert left the room. " Now Jimmie boy, I ' ve gone and spoiled everything; but you go on and have a good time. I can amuse myself by reading. I received an awfully good book of love-stories for Xmas, and I ' m just dying to read them. Please don ' t stay home on my account. " " Jane Wolbert, you couldn ' t get me to budge out of the house for a mint. My Dear, I wouldn ' t enjoy the party if you weren ' t there. We ' ll just stay at home and have a party all by ourselves. That ' ll be much more fun. " " I think we can enjoy ourselves as long as you feel that way about it. I ' ll phone for ice cream, and we can have Christmas cookies and punch n ' every- thing. " First they amuse themselves dancing. Tiring of this, Jane plays the piano and Jimmie the banjo. At twelve they eat the refreshments prepared by Jane, and the conversation continues. " Jimmie, I really feel highly insulted, you didn ' t say a word about my hair. " " Jane dear, I ' m so sorry, I have been so engrossed in your beauty that I forgot to mention how much your bobbed hair improves it. Really and truly it looks awfully well. " " Oh Jimmie, I ' m so glad you like it. " " I know what we can do after we have finished eating. We can tell fortunes by reading palms. " " Bully, that will be fine to amuse us. I say, aren ' t we having a good time though? " " Ijust Peachee ! Now I ' ll tell your for- tune first. " Jane proceeds with Jimmie ' s fortune. She looks very pretty and graceful, on THE ACADEMY Fortv-three the couch, and apparently she is having the time of her hfe. She stares into Jimmie ' s eyes, watching his facial ex- pressions. Poor Jimmie seems uncom- fortable, embarrassed and quite vexed. He is blushing like an American Beauty rose. Jane notes the wrinkles on his nose and forehead. How like a bunny he looks ! She observes how clumsy and awkward he is in his pigeon-toed pos- ture. " But, Jane, that fortune is all wrong, " exclaimed Jimmie when Jane finishes. " I don ' t like Mary Hobson. You know you are my first choice. That fortune would have been perfect had you been the girl instead of Mary. " " Jane, you ' ll have to be excused, it ' s one-thirty, " Mrs. Wolbert calls down. " Jimmie dear, I ' m so sorry the evening isn ' t longer. The time just seemed to fly. I ' m glad I couldn ' t go to the dance, because I have had you all to myself to- night, and enjoyed the evening immense- ly too. " " Good night, Jane, dear, I had a won- derful time also. Tomorrow when we go riding you ' ll tell my fortune with you in it instead of Mary. Won ' t you? " " Good night, Jimmie, I sure will. " — Roma Jl ' irth. A Prehistoric Valentine. White Hawk was the most envied woman of the Black Boar Tribe. She was the fleetest runner and the most beautiful maiden. Her hair was as black as the hide of the great mammoth, and her teeth were white and strong enough to crack the hardest nuts which her mate might desire. Therefore she was not un- loved. On the contrary there were two men who adored her. Some part of Forty-four THE ACADEMY every animal which they killed went to her, and therefore there was great rivalry between the two. Poor White Hawk was at her wits end as to which she should favor with a smile or a flower. But one day she had only one lover to bother about. On that day a deer came down to drink at the ford near the village. It happened that both Black Tooth, so called because his front teeth had turned black, and One Eye, called by that name because he had lost one eye in a fight, both saw the same deer. At precisely the same moment they hurled their spears at the victim and both ran forward to claim the prize. When they met .over the dead body of the deer thev gazed at each other in surprise, but only for a moment. Then Black Tooth kicked the body of the deer aside and a battle royal began. The two men were of about the same size and strength, and therefore, although bruised and bleed- ing from the blows received, neither was willing to give up. Finally a lucky in- cident decided the fight. Black Tooth ' s club head was not fastened securely to the handle of his club and at the moment that One Eye, with a horrible roar, hurled himself upon his opponent, bear- ing him to the earth with the force of his leap, the head of Black Tooth ' s club flew off and struck One Eye on the tem- ple. One Eye collapsed without a sound and immediately, while One Eye was still unconscious. Black Eye, with one blow of his hunting knife, severed his head from his body. Then he seated himself upon a stump and with the utmost care proceeded to remove the skin. At the end of about half an hour Black Tooth held in his hand what he considered a work of art, a human skull with a slight dent on one temple. The next day, which was St. ' alen- tine ' s Day for the Stone Age people. White Hawk received from Black Tooth, a human skull, with early spring flowers, arranged in a most attractive manner in the cavities. The next week a prehis- toric wedding took place and White Hawk cracked nuts for Black Tooth un- til she was so old that all her teeth fell out. Lisbeth Freschl.

On November 10th, the boys condes- cended to join the singing class. The con- trast between the boys ' and girls ' voices was really startling. A short vacation was enjoyed on the 3rd and 4th of November when the Teachers ' Convention was held. The first rhetoricals of the Girls ' High School were given in the early part of November. Selections from the " Mer- chant of Venice " were dramatized. The first T. N. T. was put out on No- vember 15th, by the Soph omores. It was a huge success. The Freshmen and Sophomores alternated each month in editing the T. N. T. The December rhetoricals consisted of an interesting Latin play and a clever English-Latin poem. The program was followed by an explanation of the Dis- armament Conference, by Mr. Spigener. The Freshmen girls had a candy sale at the card party given by the Womens ' Service Club, December 10th. Twenty- five dollars of the sum raised was placed into the Christmas box. The girls filled the Christmas boxes which were dis- tributed by the boys. The Christmas dance given by the Junior Service Club, on December 26th. was a great success. In the January rhetoricals on Friday the 13th, three French plays were pre- sented, followed by a short French poem. On February 21st, Elinor Trostel cele- brated her birthday, with the class. The cafeteria was decorated with plants, hatchets and flags. A clever dialogue and several interest- ing monologues were given in the rhe- toricals on February 17th. Cinderella was presented by the Ger- man class for the March rhetoricals on March 31st. The Womens ' and Junior Service Clubs held a bazaar in the gymnasium on March 31st and April 1st.

Mr. Jones, the millionaire lumber king and politician, was giving a wonderful reception. All the people prominent in society were coming. Indeed, it was to be a real event. The house was to be completely decorated and all the news- paper men were clamoring to write it up for their papers and especially did they desire pictures of the home and guests. While Mr. Jones was busy writing the invitations, his wife entered saying, " John, will you please attend to these household bills as it is nearly the eri of the month. I do not want them neg- lected. " So saying she left, and Mr. Jones began addressing envelopes for bills and invitations. A telephone call took him away from this task as he was finishing so he instructed the maid to mail them. Poor maid ! Little did so- ciety names mean to her, so she just put the invitations into the most convenient envelopes and mailed them. Time passed and the night of the re- ception came. The host and hostess were a bit excited over it all — the pre- parations and the desire to make it a real success. Soon the guests began to ar- rive. Horrors ! ! ! In trouped the milk- man and his wife, followed by the grocer and his fat wife. Indeed, so fat was she that the door seemed too small. The iceman ' s wife was dressed in a native Spanish costume — picturesque for a cos- tume ball, but hardly appropriate for a reception. The butcher and his wife must have had a quarrel before coming because he had a black eye and seemed to be afraid of the very appearance of his wife. In they came, queer and out of place, yet neither the host nor hostess made a sign of surprise. The newspaper men came and took pictures of the unusual reception and wrote up in huge headlines " Millionaire Entertains His Merchants to Show Ap- preciation of Labor. " The entire affair was a success for Mr. Jones politically, because he now became the people ' s champion. But he had a little explaining to do to the society folks who received checks and bills instead of invitations. — Hugh Bloodgood. Fifty-two THE ACADEMY What The Rain Brought to Aunt Sally. Aunt Sally was a prim old spinster who lived in the little white house on a corner in Roseville. No one would have thought of calling her Miss Per- kins ; she was Aunt Sally to young and old alike. One day Roseville was visited by some orphans bound for their annual picnic. They were all crowded together in one large farm wagon. Though the straw pricked some of them, they did not com- plain. Suddenly out of nowhere it seemed, appeared a rain cloud. The ma- tron was horrified. What should she do with those children? Then she thought of a plan. She would drop off a few children at each house. Surely no one would refuse a shelter to anyone in this rain. When the Matron came to Aunt Sally ' s little house, there was only Nancy left. Poor little freckle-faced snubnosed Nancy, everybody said she was the homeliest little girl in the home. Aunt Sally replied to the Matron ' s request, " Why of course, she can come in. " So that is the way Nancy came into Aunt Sally ' s life. When she entered in her shy manner. Aunt Sally noticed she was soaking wet. She told her to take off her dress and that she would get her a bathrobe to put around her. Then Nancy began to cry. No one had ever shown her this much kindness before. Aunt Sally ' s motherly heart went out to this little homeless waif. She took Nancy into her arms and held her tight. Aunt Sally said, " I guess I need a little girl just like you Nancy. " So that is why if you should happen to wander through Roseville in the summer time, in the shadow of an old apple tree, which shades the little white house on the corner you will see a silvery haired old lady, sitting next to a freckled- faced little girl. Winifred Stanz. Eighth Grade. The Geranium. Once upon a time, in the sandy back yard of a bungalow, there grew quite a few geraniums. Other flowers grew there of course, but not so! many, because they had to have extra boxes to grow in, and geraniums would grow in plain sand. There were no trees, except one small palm and one single rose, who was their queen, and they loved her. The sun was smiling down, as only Mother Sun can smile, and a little breeze waved the flowers gently to and fro, and they were feeling fine. " Does anybody know the secret I know? " whispered one of them. " No, " whispered the others. " Please tell us, " " I may not, unless Queen allows it. She was the one who discovered it, " said the first one. " Queen Rose! " chimed all the flowers, except the one who knew the mysterious secret, " tell us! " After she knew what the fuss was about, she smiled and said, " Some people who have two children, have moved into the house ; so we will have something to do without thinking a long time ; for I know the children will often play out here. " " Good ! " shouted all but one. " Aren ' t you glad? " asked Queen Rose sharply. " No ! " said the silent one. " Just suppose they are bad children, what would you do if they should pick us and step on us ? " " Keep still ! " said Queen Rose sharply, all the more so, be- cause she knew what was said was not impossible. " You spoil everybody ' s pleasure, by your dreadful sayings. " For the geranium spoken to was hated by all the others. " I do not care what you say, I only said ' suppose ' . " " How dare you be so rude to our beloved Queen? " cried the other flowers. Just then two THE ACADEMY Fifty-three children came running out. One was tall and slender and beautiful with very black eyes and dark hair that fell to her waist. She was very dainty and lovely, almost seven } ' ears old, and her voice was as sweet as a bell, so soft and merry. The other sister was short with danc- ing blue eyes, golden hair, and just as beautiful as the dark one. She was five years old. In fact all one would say in a few words would be, " They are simply beautiful, more so than any other chil- dren in the neighborhood. " " Oh, see those pretty flowers ! " said the older. " Aren ' t they lovely, (Jenny? " " Yes, " agreed Jenny. And then with sparkling eyes, " Oh, Ruth, I ' ve such a splendid plan! " " What is it? " asked Ruth curiously. " You have three guesses, " laughed Jennv, " and then I ' ll tell. " " Well, let me see; perhaps we are going to tend those flowers, " said Ruth eagerly. " No, " was the answer. " Then said Ruth, thinking very hard, " we ' ll pick them and put bouquets on the table every morning. " " No, you have only one more guess. Now try and see if you can ' t get it, " laughed Jenny. " Well, " said Ruth decidedly, " if I don ' t get it now, I ' ll call myself a dunce. Now, " she said, " I ' ll bet you want to take up some and put them in a flower pot for your own. Isn ' t that it? " " Pretty good guesser, " laughed Jenny, " let ' s go and ask mamma. " So ofif she ran with Ruth close at her heels. The flowers looked at each other in a startled way. Would they take all of them, even their Queen? Would they be taken good care of? As they were still puzzling over that question, the hated one spoke up cheerfully. " Well, I don ' t believe you will be badly treated ; for such good children wouldn ' t be very mean to us. " Just at that moment the two children came out, carrying one flower pot, two shovels, and a pair of scissors. A ' lamma had agreed to let them take one plant. " Which one shall we take, " said Ruth, coming towards the trembling flowers. And they chose, which one do you sup- pose? The hated one. " Good-bye, bad luck to you, " said all but the Queen. She was more civil. The geranium was placed with great care in a beautiful blue and white flower pot, then taken into the house, where she was treated even better than the Queen lad ever been. Once she caught sight of her former companions, who asked her how she was faring. " Wonderfully, " she said, and told them how she was treated, and the wonderful things she could see. " You ' re certainly luckier than yovi deserve, " said the Queen enviously. Soon after this, the people left with their two beautiful children. They planted the geranium beside the Queen, where she was treated nicely, for the Queen was there to protect her, and it soon discovered how unjustly she had formerly been treated. A whole year passed by and again the children came to live in the cottage with its sandy back-yard. And again the geranium was placed in a jar and left on the front porch, where she could see all that was going on. Three weeks passed by. Then the flowers heard sad news. When climbing a tree to help a little bird, Ruth had fallen and broken her leg. While she lay in bed, up in her ' ittle white room, the geranium was brought up and kept her company. When they went home, it was planted m her Aunt ' s yard, where it thrived, and grew to be the most wonderful geranium in the country. Years and years later the two sisters came again. They dug up all the ger- aniums in the back-yard, also the one in their Aunt ' s yard, and took them home with them. There they were planted in the garden, where they could grow side by side forever, and watch the chil dren ' s children play. — Helcnc Kreutzer. Fifty-four THE ACADEMY Br-r-r-r went my radio and so I hur- ried to make connections. " Hello, " I said, " who is this talking? " " This is the Wurster Manufacturing Co. This is Edgar Franke talking, just a minute, Mr. William Wurster wishes to talk to 3 ' ou. " We talked together for a few minutes, and soon I heard Mr. Wurster. Through my new radio mirror attachment I could see him as well as hear him. Such are the improvements of 1935. After talk- ing awhile, I made a connection with the Court House. There I heard and saw Marcella Breidster, now on the Judge ' s bench. She had been elected Circuit Judge of Milwaukee. Gertrude Kasten, her old chum, had been elected Mayor. I congratulated them on their new posi- tions. As I was glancing over my morning paper, I read that Robert Zinn is to be the manager of a new theater, which is being built by the Wagner Construction Company. On the next page was an account of Louise Zinn. The news item stated that she is now the champion ten- nis player of America. I read the musi- cal announcements and learned that Hugh Bloodgood, now a second Caruso, My Class in 1935. is to give a concert soon. Betty Straus will play the piano accompaniment and Norman Hoffman, the cello. Then I de- cided I must go as all three were my for- mer classmates. Later in the day I walked down town and met Julia Kronshage. She told me that she and Marion Kreutzer were starting a " Coffee and Doughnut " Club. She also stated that they had rented a club house for $500 a month. I passed a beautiful building, being erected by the Wagner Construction Co., and found that Ruth Thompson and Florence Howe are starting a Chop Suey Restaurant. I met Herbert Kurth on Milwaukee street, (he has become a famous news- paper editor). I asked him about Tom Day and he said that he is better than our old pugilist Dempsey for he knocked out George Cassel in the third round of the last boxing match. I went into the largest bookstore in Milwaukee, and this is owned by Karl Werwath, and I bought a book written by the famous author, Fredrick L ' ihlein. Here endeth the class prophecy of High L Judith Babcock. The Brook. A little distance from me. Not so very far away. Through ferns and reeds and rushes, A brook winds its happy way. It wakes me in the morning. With its bright and cheery song, And it keeps me feeling happy Through the day so sweet and long. And also in the evening. When Fm tired as can be. It lulls me into slumber sweet With its cheery melody. And sometimes when I hear the brook. Singing songs to me, I wish that I like it could be, Happy, bright and free. — Helen Kruetzer. THE ACADEMY Fifty-five Student Council. The Student Council is an innovation in the school this year. It is composed of two members elected from each class, one member known as the President, chosen by the entire school, and one fac- ulty member, who has merely advisory power. The Council was formed to take the place of the Athletic Council of last year which formed the executive committee of the Athletic Association, and also to have similar powers in scho- lastic affairs. Its purpose is to ensure better co-operation between faculty and students. This year ' s Council consisted of Faculty Advisor — F. T. Laird. President — Buemming. Senior Representative — Brumder. Senior Representative — Studley. Junior Representative — Bachman. Junior Representative — Zinn. Sophomore Rep. — R. Gust. Sophomore Rep. — Halstead. Freshman Rep. — F. Hoffman. Freshman Rep. — E. Hoffmann. At the midyear, the Presidency was left vacant by the graduation of Buem- ming, so Brumder was chosen President and Winnacker, Senior Class Represen- tative. The chief measures passed by the Council were the selling of Athletic Asso- ciation Pins instead of cards, and the standardizing of the Athletic Emblems. The Magistrate.

The cast Dec. 16, 1922. had been well selected, and for two hours The cast of " The Magistrate " was as we were well entertained by their clever follows: repetition of the charming lines of the Beatie Tomlinson Robert Pratt author. The play abounds with many Cis Farringdon John Buemming dramatic incidents which our fellow Wyke Richard Gust class mates executed in a splendid man- Popham Hermann Kommrusch ner. Even Julian Eltinge himself would Agatha Posket Frank Young have recognized Young, Wirth, H.

U. S. Grunt. One fine October morning a bright young student, who now, dear readers, has graduated and left our midst, came tripping down to school. In spite of his brightness his mind was awhirl and one could hear him murmur occasionally to himself. " It ' s a great scheme and just what our school needs. A daily application im- mediately upon arrival will give more life to the place. " He seemed as in a trance and thus he remained for two days. But upon the third day his mind seemed to have cleared and he spoke to a few of his friends, saving, " I have an idea ! " But that was all. And so it happened that the ne t morning a vast crowd stood chuckling, in front of the bulletin board. The idea of Eugene Schuster was before us. An illustrated news sheet of the Milwaukee University School, entitled The Grunt. Our dear editor had not lingered to re- ceive the plaudits of his enthusiastic readers, but as was his custom had taken his usual seat in the assembly where echoes from the bulletin board made him realize that his labor had not been in vain. Thus was created The M. L ' . S. Daily Grunt, that paper which did so much to promote school spirit. To our Eugene Schuster, the boy with the smile, we render our hearty thanks, and trust that his work will be carried on for many years at M. U. S. — A. B. Berresford. The Rhetoricals. It has been a long established custom of the Milwaukee University School to have each pupil speak, twice a year on an original theme. There is no fixed law as to the character of the subject chosen. This year more than the usual interest has been shown towards the rhetoricals due to novel plans of pre- senting them. Groups of boys have got- ten together and presented a play, or a scene from a play, instead of appearing individually. One of the best of these was a playlet entitled " The Employment Bureau, " presented by Harold Yoccum, Frederick Gust, George Virmond, Carl Buehler, Walter Zinn and Russell Wirth. The play, under the able direction of Mr. Laird, was cleverly done. Fifty-eight THE ACADEMY Alumni News. Herbert Sapper, 1919, who spent last year in Hamburg, has returned t o the University of Wisconsin. Albert Vogel, 1919, is now a Junior at Cornell. Lester and Medford Stone, 1918, after graduating from Yale last year accom- panied their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nat. Stone, abroad. Upon their return they took positions with a Milwaukee business concern. John Merker, 1918, and Herbert Spie- gel, 1917, spent the summer of 1921 in Europe Richard Landauer, 1919, is a Junior at Yale. Of the class of 1921, Arthur Kletzsch and Otto Trostel are at Cornell, while Bruce Leet and Clarence Busch are at- tending Milwaukee Normal. Harry For- ister and Harry Bramschreiber entered the Dental Department and Albert Eg- gert the Medical Department of Mar- quette University. The University of Wisconsin claimed George Abendroth, Irving Saltzstein and Walter Stewart. George Bernhard is at the County Bee School and Lawrence Whififen at Illinois L niversity. Eugene Lindemann, 1920, after com- pleting the year at Chicago University, expects to continue his studies abroad. On December 20th, Elton Hackett ex- plained to the Dramatic Club, by means of a miniature stage of his own mak- ing, the Hume plan of simplified stage scenery. Wells Carberry, 1917, took a leading part in " Kitty Corner, " the Haresfoot play. His acting, singing and dancing were enthusiastically praised. We are proud of the fact that he received his early dramatic training at M. U. S. undei Mr. Laird in Shakespearian dramas in which he excelled at the time. R. E. Vogel, ' 18, now at Princeton, was in many of his school ' s activities. He took one of the leading parts in " Espan- ola, " the play of the Princeton Triangle Club, when it was presented in Milwau- kee. For his work in athletics he re- ceived the " SPT " Varsity Swimming Team Insignia and his ' Championship Minor Sports " P " as manager of Water Polo. On April 20, John Merker, on behalf of the Yale Club of Milwaukee presented the school with two pictures. One was the beautiful Harkness Memorial and the other of the Yale Bowl filled to wit- ness a Yale-Harvard football game. The Harkness Memorial is one of the finest examples of modern Gothic archi- tecture. Its chief beauty lies in its many minute ragged towers and old stained glass windows. It is ornamented with symbolic and historic figures. The picture of the Yale Bowl was taken in 1916 when Yale beat Harvard 6 to 3. After a short interesting talk Mr. Mer- ker ended his talk with a quotation from page 35, Riverside Edition of Bacon ' s Essay : " The time to stop talking is when you have nothing to talk about. " He afterwards acknowledged that he had not read the quotation on page 35, that as far as he knew Riverside had never published Bacon ' s Essays and finally that the quotation was not from Bacon. Earl Hanson, 1917, and Horace Greg- ory, 1919, are editors of the Wisconsin Literary Magazine, the official magazine of the University of Wisconsin.

Lucius Hipke, 1915, is an intern in a Cleveland hospital. News Letter. In order to keep the Alumni and the parents informed of the doings of the school and its graduates we have this year installed a " News Letter. " Thru l.his " News Letter " we hope to keep in close touch with all our graduates whose constant affiliation with the school means much to our future progress and success. In recalling their days spent with us here, they are sure to find some interest in every copy of the " News Letter " that reaches them. Father and Son Banquet. The first father-and-son celebration given by the school was held Nov. 11, and was attended by more than a hun- dred boys and their fathers. After re- ception and assembly, dinner was served in the cafeteria by the Woman ' s Service Club. At the Assembly Mr. Griebsch wel- comed the fathers and explained the de- sire of the school to have the constant interest of the parents in the school work. Mr. Spigener discussed the rela- tions which should exist among son, father, and teacher to be of the greatest value and pleasure to each of them. A number of both the fathers and the sons took part in the program. After dinner the fathers inspected the buildings, and ended in the laboratory where the science classes were conduct- ing exhibition experiments. The eve- ning closed with a volley ball and base ball game, sons against fathers, in which the fathers were victors. This first celebration has been pro- nounced a great success by all those who were able to take part in it, and numer- ous requests have come to the Director of the school to arrange another such party very soon. It is the plan of the school to make these meetings an annual affair, and we trust that this fine asso- ciation shall become a vital part of our school life.

He has taken the place of Mr. Varrelmen, who left us to study medicine. Mr. Hensel has brought new exercises and ideas with him and every- body enjoys his classes. In addition to his regular gymnastic duties he coaches the Freshman and Eight Grade teams. Since we have no athletic field, our ac- tivities must be confined to the gym- nasium and the tennis courts. With the opening of school the Indoor baseball season was immediately started. Three teams were selected and captained by A. Brumder, .Streissguth, and Guignet. There was a great deal of competition as the teams were well matched. Streiss- guth and his team finally won the series. The teams were as follows : Str ' sg ' th(cpt.) Brumder(cpt. ; R. Gust. Frankfurth Bernhard E. Brumder Beumming Baerwald Abendroth F. Gust Schnellbaecher Winnacker Won 5-Lost 3 Won 4-Lost 4 The All-Star team, composed of play- ers picked from Brumder ' s and Guignet ' s teams, defeated Streissguth ' s team by a large score. Milwaukee I ' niversity School owes a great deal of its success in basketball to the coaching of Mr. Leker This is the first year that Mr. Leker has coached the first team. He put new life and pep into the fellows; he revealed the good sportsmanship and merits of the boys and showed what they could do. With only one first team man of last year he built up a team which won twelve games and lost only eight. Practice started soon after the baseball season ended, and our first game was on December second. Guignet (capt) Bachman Zinn Schuster W ' irth Worm Won 3-Lost 5 We played against the Alumni and de- feated them by a score of 17 to 15. There was not much teamwork on either side as it was our first game and the Alumni had not played together before. They had one lofty advantage over us with Hipke playing center. The next was a practice game on our floor against Lincoln Athletic Club. We defeated them 30 to 7. Then on December 10th we went out to Beaver Dam with a good crowd of rooters, but lost to Wa}land Academy in a good, hot game. 22 to 30. Sixty-four THE ACADEMY KonnRUSCH VINN HCKE " R THE ACADEMY Sixty -five Immediately after Christmas, on the 27th, while we were still full of Christ- mas dinner, we went to beat St. John ' s High School. It was an overtime game and our " terrible Dick " made the win- ning basket. The next day we took on a pick-up Alximni team, easily defeating them by the terrific score of 47 to 11. Dick made nine baskets. After a week of hard practice we lost to Racine 15 to 23 in the Racine Y. M. C. A. It was a hard fought game and rather rough at times. Brumder, our captain, had an argument with the floor ; the floor won, consequently George looked as if he had come out of a slaugh- ter house. The second team also lost, 7 to 34. Wednesday, January 11th, we beat Menominee Falls on their floor, 18 to 16. Our mighty Dick was ' taken out be- cause of personal fouls. After the first team had run the score up to 12 to 2. Mr. Leker sent in the second squad, Menominee caught up and the first squad went back in again. On the 13th we encountered West Bend. This was the cleanest game we had played up to this time. It also was the closest, they won 16 to 18, after a very hotly fought game. The following Tuesday afternoon we played West Allis on our floor. The first squad beat them in a clean, fast game, 22 to 10. The second lost, 6 to 12. January 20th we played the Black Spots at home. We spoiled their seven game winning streak by defeating them, 25 to 12 ; the second team playing part of the game. On the 24th we were defeated by Wauwatosa on our own floor by the score of 19 to 24. There was much play- ing. The second squad defeated their second team in a close game, 10 to 8. The following Friday we played Nor- mal School second team at Normal. They beat us 11 to 22, in a fast game. We had a lot of hard luck in shooting baskets. The next game was played at Wauwa- tosa. Our quintet lost, 21 to 30, in a rough game. We were greatly handi- capped by the small g ' m and could use very little teamwork. The second squad won in a close overtime game, 19 to 16. Our next opponent was the Milwaukee Country Day School. We beat them on our own floor by a score of 17 to 6. Country Day made only one field goal against our guards, Brumder and Baer- wald. The supreme teamwork of our quintet was too fast for them. The sec- ond team also defeated their seconds, 11 to 6. The double-header was followed by the Senior class dance, which was a great success. On the 14th of February we beat West Allis in their gym, 22 to 6. The floor being so slippery and the referee so slow that much rough play got by. The sec- ond squad was defeated by their seconds, 9 to 16. Three days later on the 17th, we en- countered the supposedly " invincible " Slinger team on our floor and decisively beat them, 37 to 27. It was an exceed- ingly fast game. Our flying forward, R. Gust, made 6 baskets ; White, a forward on Slinger ' s team made some sensational long shots. After a week of hard practice we took a trip down to Lake Geneva and played against Northwe stern Military and Na- val Academy. They treated us splendid- ly and in turn we defeated them, 20 to 5. They were handicapped in a way, for three of their first team men were unable to play. Our teamwork, without doubt, surpassed theirs. The game was fea- tured by much rough playing which at times resembled football. On the following Tuesday afternoon. Menominee Falls, our next victims, fell under a score of, 46 to 5. The second squad helping to defeat them. This made our fifth successive victory. The third of March we encountered Wayland Academy in a fast game. Their guards succeeded in covering our for- wards so well that few baskets were made. The final score was 14 to 21. Our last game of the season was a re- Sixiy-six THE ACADEMY SECOND TEAM. ZINN BERNHARD LEKER (Coach) FRANKFURTH GONSER ABENDROTH VIRMOND F. GUST STUDLBY THE ACADEMY Sixtv-sez ' en turn game at Country Day School. By a bit of over-confidence we lost, after we had them, 19 to 10, in the last ciuar- ter. Downing made a sensational long shot from two-thirds the length of the floor. This was followed by several more baskets by M. C. D. It was an exceedingly fast game with very little rough playing. The second team also lost, 7 to 17. Thus ended the 1921-22 season of M. U. S. basket ball. With what we had to contend with, the record of the first team is one to be proud of. Out of twenty games played we won twelve and lost eight ; the second team winning three and losing four.

Kommrusch. Our freshman team, coached by Mr. Hensel, did not show any extraor- dinary basketball ability during their sea- son, as there was not very much material to choose from, but they played a fair game. The eighth grade team showed some pep and fine playing and played some hard and exciting games. But they en- countered much hard luck in shooting baskets, so not many games were won by them. The annual indoor track meet, held on March 25th, at the school gymnasium, proved a success for the Nemeans. The P -thians won the indoor meet the year before.

This spring an attempt is being made to put into the field an interscholastic tennis team, to play matches, if possible, with the Country Day School, and the Junior divisions of the Washington Park, West Side, and Town Club. The team consists of six players who play four singles and three doubles con- tests per match. A system has been de- vised, enabling anyone so inclined to challenge any player on the team, for his place. In this way it is hoped to keep the players on their toes, and get rid of careless tennis. As the school has several Junior play- ers of considerable merit, a fair measure of success as well as a lot of good sport is expected from this innovation. Sophomores Win School Championship. After the regular basketball season was over, each class chose a team to compete in a series of basketball games for the school championship. The first scheduled game was played between the Juniors and Seniors, the Seniors win- ing 14-12. The next game was played between the Freshmen and Sophomores, the Sophomores easily defeating their opponents, 36-1, R. Gust starring for the Sophomores. The f inal game, deciding the championship between the Sopho- mores and Seniors, was won by the Sophomores, 13-10. The Sophomores Championship team was composed of R. Gust, Wirth, F. Gust, Virmond, Gonser and H. Kommrusch.

Cigarette after cigarette he had smoked, until the air in the room was fairly blue and his ash tray was filled to overflowing with the unsmoked ends. What could be worrying the tall, handsome, appar- ently well-to-do college lad ? His hands were never still. He toyed with his cigarette or ran his fingers thru his hair. Occasionally he went to his bed, where several suits were carelessly thrown in a pile. Nervously he felt thru the pockets of each suit and tossed them aside, despairing. He sat down facing the door, lit another cigarette, and waited. Slowly the door opened. " Ah ! There you are ! " he cried, bounding to his feet. He snatched the suit from the hands of the tailor ' s boy and feverishly went thru the pockets. At an inner vest pocket he paused and straightened up. He drew out a roll of bills. Carefully he counted them. Think of it, nearly $2,000 in bills and not one of them was receipted ! P.I. Freshie ' s Delight. A little note, a rubber band, Ready to shoot, i-eady to land.

Perhaps you think we handed you A trifle more than was your due Perhaps you think that your fair name Was quite left ofi: ' the scroll of fame ; But you should feel you got the " spiel " , Because you were so great, you know. Or else we slighted you because Your character was lacking flaws. Now either way you look at it, Put on the coat, it sure will fit.
