M.FOREWORD The Periscope staff this year has related the OUTSTANDING SCHOOL EVENTS IN ”a WINTER'S TALE." A Till ME THAT IS CARRIED THROUGHOUT THE BOOK BY llll WINTER SCENES TAKEN IN EAU CLAIKE AND vicinity Scenes in ihe opening section show rm-: winter aspect of Eau Claire: residences; the verse in this section is by Charles A. Manchester i:x-'32.The leaves are none- -Chill Winter's call I las brought the North Wind's frosted breath. White messengers of silence fall Where Summer's green lies sere in death R. W. Hutchens ResidenceH. A. White Residence Oh. blossoms of the Summer gone. With odors rare and faces bright. You'll wake no more in dew of dawn Or scent the warm and star-set night And now the joys of other years. The rainbow dreams oj lone ago. Have vanished like our hopes and fears - One with the dead and drifted snow. B R. Schvk jihn ResidenceThrough Winter's harrier curtain white. There works, we know, the Master's will Another Springtime's warming light, And misty green on woody hill. P. O. Lemmrk RcskknccUnder the snow new beauty dreams; In snowbound homes new visions rise: In frosted panes of winter. gleams The pledge of happy Summer skies. C. I Bundy ResidenceSOUVENIR Outside, the ghosts of long dead years Mourn weirdly on the dark and winter wind While the ice-tipped arrows of the sleeted snow Beat cold and lonely on my window pane. Within, as the waning firelight fainter grows. I take this worn old book from its accustomed shelf And turn its pages, one hy one A magic tome, where carefree, ink-sprawled words have caught Glad bits from the buoyant heart of youth. And held them ageless through the corroding years Touched by the fairy wand of these phantom thoughts. ITksc pictured laces smile again. And lips long silent greet me yet once more Again I know t he whispers of the wtxxJcd ridge. The silver voices of the brook, the river's restless lullaby. And shattered dreams grow fragile bright in some vanished dawn Ah! Youth and laughter, love and life, again arc mine! The book is closed. Outside, the winter wind moans on, And the driving snow beats drearily against my window pane. CAM.ADMINISTRATIONADMINISTRATION Tin EauClairf.

I hen. for one. two, or four years, depending on the courses they have selected, they endeavored to assimilate and to pass on to their "practice classes the wisdom of numerous textbooks. Then they have fared forth along this same walk to take their places in the world "out there." A winter scene near the school. I'his corner was photographed near the entrance to scenic Putnam Drive. All students arc well acquainted with this and similar spots from their spring-fevered rambles. and nature study students often come here for "specimens." It is more or less deserted through the winter months, but it presents a picture for the beauty lover courageous enough to brave the cold. I fiftyCampus Views One reason why the boys and girls who attend the Training School here are so enthusiastic is because of this fine playground. The equipment consists of swings, teeter-totters, two slides, n whirling climb, and a horizontal ladder. No wonder protesting cries greet the bell at the end of each recess period liven the college students urc not above disporting themselves on the intriguing apparatus In 1932 this seven-room structure became un added fixture to the college campus. It is the home of Mr and Mrs. Henry Hahn and children. " Hank ”, the school engineer, makes the college building comfortable on these blustering days when interest centers around thermometer readings When this college first opened its doors for enrollment. most of the students who did not live in Eau Claire roomed in the city, going home only occasionally Now the students arrive each morning from the surrounding country Some drive old. well-worn cars; others have large, new radio-equipped autos Many of the students find these cars an excellent place to rest between classes if the weather is mild. fifty-oneCollege Classrooms What do you suppose Mr. Simpson is pointing out to this class in Rural Geography’ In this picture is shown one of the best equipped geography rooms in the stutc A unique feature of the study of geography in our school is the long field trips ic various parts of the country— usually ore trip each summer It is expected that a trip will be conducted this year. Our school station W9IFV is under the direction of Dr Judd of the (acuity and G let us Dunn, licensed student operator. It is possible to both send and receive messages over this station The radio students have listened to broadcasts from twenty-three major countries in the world, from Cape Horn to India; conversations have been earned on with several distant parts of the United States and Canadu. This is one of the few leisure moments of Mr. Ackerman's General Chemistry I class The picture shows less than one-half of the students taking General Chemistry I Several courses in Advanced Chemistry are offered to those who desire to enroll in them There are five well-equipped rooms allotted to the Chemistry Ihrpartment of the school. !ifty twoCollege Classrooms Miss Oxby conducts the Freshman Composition classes and an Advanced Composition class.

Several long themes arc required, us well us the daily short ones Mr. Brewer has two classes in Principles of Education one for degree Seniors, and the either for Seniors in the two-year courses This course was originally called "Classroom Problems”, and was a five-hour course for a semester. The course now-deals with everyday problems of the classroom and their solutions. Miss Miller teaches Ancient and Medieval History The struggles f.r existence the wars, and the advances in art. literature and other phases of civilization arc discussed in these classes.

At the beginning of this year, the members decided to have one social meeting each month cither a dinner, an evening party, or a picnic For this purpose a general social committee was appointed, which, in turn, appointed a separate committee to plan each meeting, one member of the general committee being on each subcommittee The first event of the year was a party given by the old members for the new members. At Christmas time, a chicken dinner, which the girls cooked themselves, was held in the cafeteria. At this dinner, a program was given by the members. For the end of the year, the girls planned a picnic, and also a banquet.

It is open to all students, with the exception of Freshmen. who arc interested in scientific enterprises. The objects of the organization arc three-fold: to conduct experimental projects, to keep abreast of the developments of science in the world, and to create a spirit of fellowship among science students. The club holds its meetings once u month. The programs are technical ones generally including a talk by a speaker from outside of school. I his is followed by a group discussion The organization holds u few parties each year Last year, for the first time, the girls enrolled in the Primary’ course co-operated with President Vice Presulent Secretary-Treasurer Faculty Advisor the Science Club in giving a banquet. This proved to be such a success that the club has included it in its program again this year. The club is divided into biology, physics, chemistry', and radio groups. Each group plans and works out some project, and when it is completed presents it to the club In this way each member becomes acquainted with all activities in which experiments arc being cor-ductcd. This year the radio group has worked with short-wave receivers and individual engineering with new type tubes: also, some work has been done with high frequency telephone transmission.

The Blue and Gold played some of its best football against non-conference opponents— Mankato. Northland, and St. Paul Luther, 'lire climax of the season was reached when the Zornmcn lost to River balls in the last three minutes of play. As the season drew to a close. Eau Claire, weakened by injuries, seemed to lose its fight; and. as a result, lost to Winona and LaCrossc by wide margins. The Superior game was canceled on account of cold weather. The coaches, in developing the team, were confronted with many problems. The big problem at the outset was to find a capable pair of ends to take the place of Clarke and I lorcl. regular ends of last year, who failed to return to school. An injury to ('.o-captain Hanson in the St. Paul l.uthcr game necessitated the finding of a capable tackle and a long-distance punter one week before the opening conference game with River Falls. Dickie and Fenske were used at the tackle position, and Walters and J Barnes developed into fairly capable punters as the season progressed. Ihc injury to Sherman made the center position a problem. However. Brunstad, although not Sherman’s equal in size, filled this position capably. Coach Zorn was assisted by Werner Taves. former Blue and Gold tackle.

The Greeks held wonderful track and field meets two thousand years ago; in fact, that is where our modem Olympic games got the name. After the fall of ancient Greece, track and field declined until it was almost nonexistent. In modern times, however, it has been developed again, and has come to be one of the major sports in colleges. First Eau Claire Events Track and field has had a place intermittently on the sports program of Eau Claire State Teachers' College for a number of years. I ie first meet was held in 1921. when a team coached by Mr. Simpson, of the faculty. defeated River Falls. Eau Claire took first in every individual event except the shot-put. The "stars ' of that team were Christopherson. MacKinncy. Griffin. Swanson. Jasper, and Schippcr Christ opherson was the broad and high jumper. He left Eau Claire at the end of his first year and entered Ripon. where he became one of the best all-around athletes ever to attend that school. Later, while at Harvard, he tried out for the 1928 Olympic games, but failed to make the team. MacKinncv and Griffin, according to Mr. Simpson, were on a par with Christ opherson. From that time until 1927. nothing in the way of an intercollegiate track ond field meet took place. In that year, a team coached by Mr Gerber. Eau Claire coach, participated in a triangular meet of 1 aiCrosse. Plattcville. and Eau Claire The team consisted of Barkley. Lind-erman, Blang. Gongnll. Mclz. Raymond. "Ernie" Merrill. Miller, and Sathcr. Mclr won first in the 440-yard dash, Merrill first in the high jump. Blang first in the javelin. Barkley second in the broad jump, and Linder-man second in the 100-yard dash 'The same team later became the first Eau Claire team to contest in the state track and field meet held annually at the University of Wisconsin, liiis meet is a very colorful event because all the teachers' colleges of the state compete in it. Recent Track and Field Track and field suffered another lapse, but since the coming of Coach Zorn it has become a part of the regular sports program. Eau Claire took part in the triangular meet with LaCrossc and Winona in 1910. Merrill. Sicg. Finn, and Eggleston placed. Swirzenberg. in the same year, was sent to the Minnesota relays ui Minneapolis. but did not place, although he made a creditable showing in a choice field. Dual meets were held with Winona and Stout in 1932 and 1933 Eau Claire won from Stout Inst year. In recent years, these dual meets have been preceded by an interclass track meet l ast year this meet was won by the Freshmen, an outcome which bodes well for future track teams of the school.

Besides the college events, the Teachers College field, which Mr. Simpson claims is unexcelled in Northwestern Wisconsin, has attracted the high school track meets of this section. The Little Eight track meet and the Sectional High School meet are held here each spring. Advantages of Track and Field Track and field as a sport has advantages that arc peculiarly its own Mr Simpson, when questioned about his preferences among sports, said. " I prefer football first, track and field second, polo third, and baseball fourth” Explaining his liking for track and field, he said. "It is an individual's sport I’herc is no sport that gives such returns to diligence and training It is not such a time consumer. There arc no details of technique as in basketball and football, particularly the latter. As a spring sport it is better than baseball, which does not begin until a short time before school ends " Track and field, he explained, is the most natural of all college sports because each individual event is merely a development of some one of the natural actions, such as running, jumping, leaping over obstructions, and pole vaulting over creeks As a result, some feature of track and field is within the ability of practically every boy An individual may compete in track and field even though he doesn't win a place, and a boy can "star without being an all-around athlete Yet there is no sport which offers such opportunities to the all-around athlete The sport has other advantages, he said in conclusion. I'hcrc is an absence of the obnoxious public hysteria which usually surrounds competition in other sports. The absence of the element of physical contact reduces injuries to a minimum Finally, track and field teaches the lessons of discipline and democratic association as no other sport can teach them. Future Track Meets liiis year track and field meets Eau Claire probably will hold or take part in are the high school meets, the intcrclass meet, a triangular meet with 1-aCrossc and Winona, a dual meet with Stout .and the state meet at Madison If the weather permits, these matches will be held this spring It is absolutely essential to a track meet that the weather be good, because the meet can neither be held on a rainy day nor postponed to a later date. In conclusion it may be said that, with interest in the sport increasing both in the college itself and in the larger high schools of the vicinity. Eau ( laire may soon become the center of track and field in northwest Wisconsin. It would not be surprising if the college would develop a strong track team in the near future. «vcmynineHoy Hrhli Couch Zorn Setter Kopphn WV« kulifihm IUU Parkoruh firuhn CfWiruU Koehler U hmett Gant her. . t il Stockroom Mono ter Voigt Wichmann Kottke Hilton, Staikroom Manager Basketball Season The 1034 basketball season wus one of the most successful In recent ycurs Eiau Claire played thirteen Karnes and won six four of which were non-conference games Six conference defeats were somewhat compensated for by two victories over Stout Basketball practice this year begun early in November, long before the end of the football season About forty men tried out for the squads, but due to the fact that no "B" team was organized this year, this number had to be cut to eighteen. Of the eighteen men tin the squad, nine played their first year with the Eiluc and Gold, four had no previous varsity experience, three had had one year of experience, and the remaining two. Griswold und Kottke. were veterans with two years experience. The ineligibility of Hendrickson the first semester left Coach Zorn with u nucleus of only four experienced men around which to build a team. How well he did this is made evident by the fact that the team won four straight pre-conference games After losing a one-sided game to Superior and two dose games to River Falls and LaCrosse. Euiu Claire reached the peak of the season by defeating Stout on Stout s floor. At this point the loss of Griswold, high scorer in the conference, through ineligibility, and of Wichmann. by illness, so weakened the team tbit it did not recover until the return game with Superior.

The Spectator and the Periscope arranged it The "barber' (Eau Claire) is doing his duty by "trimming" the "customer (River Palls). Unfortunately. River Palls was mu quite trimmed." Beat River Palls and is "he getting beaten' Phis float was made by the Grammar Club Many were the hours spent winding ull thut crepe paper, and many more were the groans when the wind tore it off. But the parade was worth all the effort required.

This picture was taken the night of the bonfire. eight)'-eight Homecoming The Primary Club's float showed the E£au Claire team receiving the symbol of victory from "Victory " herself Following this float were the boys und girls of the Training School, riding their colorfully decorated bicycles This picture of the I lomccoming parade was taken at the "Four Corners", looking southwest It shows the beginning of rhe parade, led by members of the Fau Claire National Guard Company Following these were the organization floats and private cars, which had been decorated bv the students. All the organizations were represented by clever and original floats. For the first time the Training School was represented in the parade this year. All the boys and girls who could borrow or who owned bicycles decorated them and rode in the big parade All onlookers agreed that this feature was one of the best of the parade. I'he Newman Clubs float said. "Were Hunting the River Falls Falcons. Will We Get Them? We ll Say’" They didn't get the Falcons, but they won first place for having the best float The I lomccoming bonfire was held Friday evening.

Homecoming The first Homecoming in history was the return of the Prodigal Son. and the lust for us. our own Homecoming in the year 1933. The two arc as distant from one another as the breadth of imagination Yet the principle of the two is the same a sincere, wholehearted celebration for former friends und associates on their return to the old home. Our First I Iomecominc Eau Cluirc held its first I lomccoming in 1924 the year that (xiach Zorn became famous as the seven-yard terror" of the much heralded University of Chicago buck f ield Homecoming had a rather inconspicuous beginning here The Spectator of that year said. "Only two things occurred to mar the success of our Homecoming celebration on November 7 the weather und the loss of the game to Whitewater by the score of 9 to 3 ' (Was ever u worse pair of devils sent to mur a I lomccoming?) I hat was m the days when Eau Cluirc was a Normal School and played football games ut Driving Park. On that occasion, at two o'clock, the student body alter attending a "pep" meeting in the assembly, g.thcred ut the east side of the school for the parade to the field I hc hand led the march I hc Spectator goes on to say that in the evening a Homecoming dance was held in the Normal School gym. Although the defeat und the urctic weather chilled the enthusiasm of the crowd somewhat, '•veryone present managed to have a good time. First Friday Program The Friduy program, which constitutes a major part of our present Homecoming, was instituted in 1925. The Spectator of that year says. "A pep' meeting put the entire school on edge for the fray. There was music by the bund, speeches by the coaches, players, and faculty. und us un added touch, a portrayal of the impending gridiron struggle. This was symbolic of the stirring old days when men were ' he-men and women were 'worth fighting for’. The sketch centered around the fierce battle between knight-errants Lefty' I loehn (football luminary of that year) and Eldon Born for the hand of the Goddess of Victory who was vivaciously impersonated by the nymph-like I loracc Joos." On Saturday "the colors of both schtxils were Hying from every lump post on Burst ow street, and placurds heralded the approaching fray from every show window The game, "a grim fight from start to finish, marred by many injuries," was lost to River Falls, b to 0. but at the Homecoming dance, "if there was any gloom because of the gume. it disappeared when the 'Theodore Mandarin Saxtv-Jazzifiers' began their attack The I lomccoming bonfire originated in I92t the year the "school made more noise than a Ringling Brother's menagerie ” In the following year 1927. the year Eau Claire Normal School became u college—a student alumni banquet was made part of the regular Homecoming program It was held on Friday night and all the football men were guests. Homecoming ended rather disastrously that year, when River Falls won u 23 to 0 victory. Homecoming in 1928 It was in 192K the year of the coming of Cxiach Zorn that I lomccoming really came into its own " Eau Claire College ", the school song, was sung in the "pep meeting and competition was keen among the organizations of the school In the evening the banquet was held '.buries Emery, the man who by his own admission "remained in school so long the Freshmen thought he wus a member of the faculty." was toastmaster Toasts were given by Mr Slagg.

After the bonfire on the campus. Friday night, the students, cheering and singing at every street comer, "snake-danced" to the State Theater for a special show-. ITtc feature of that Homecoming. however, was the broadcast of a pep" meeting over radio station WTAQ for the alumni of the school. On Saturday the parade was held Each organization in the school built u float, which represented some comment on the c mmg battle, and competed for prizes. As the parade wound its way through the city, the best float was selected by u committee of business men. The game, in which the Blue and Gold came from behind to take a 24 to 13 victory from Stout, added much to the spirit of the occasion Ihc crowning incident of the Homecoming that year, us in later years, was the banquet and dance, which had been transferred from Friday to Saturday night Thus ended a great I lomecom-ing! Through all these years. I lomccoming has undergone tremendous changes. Ten years from now. w-ith new students and new events, it probably will have undergone even more radical changes But in spite of changes the old adage holds "Men and events change, but principles never!" ninetyS3I1IAIJLOVClarence Lund Virginia Smith Ckorgr Dickson Robert I Ialmstad Mini News Editor Bus Miiimkit Or.

Happiness In certain quiet moods I often try to define happi-ncs or to seek some measure by which one may ascertain when it exists and when it does not. Of course, on final analysis, one secs that there are many degrees of happiness, some of which border closely on the sorrowful. In fact, if we examine some beautiful lives, we see that happiness itself may be gained through sorrow If that is the ease and if happiness may come from sorrow, its opposite, then there may indeed be a very fine shade of difference between the two. The best way to find examples of happiness is to watch the faces of children. Simple joy. unmixed with pain, is here made evident But we adults look on condescendingly and watch the antics of children without considering the whys and wherefores of the mood Truly, in children we see G d-givcn joy. Has not (Tirist said, "Unless you become as little children "? Sorrowing, we look on our own adult deceits and secret joys and wonder if we ever can become as little children. This is why there is so close a relation between joy and sorrow. We adults arc able to appreciate keenly sorrow of many kinds, chiefly death of our friends and close relatives. In children, trouble is soon dispelled, and even death is soon forgotten When such a tragedy occurs in later life, we arc at first struck dumb, and we cry futilcly to our God in despair and sometimes in anger. Like children, we see only the injustice of the trouble that befalls us. Heath seems a malignant enemy creeping upon us in the night, devilishly chcxising those who care the least to die. Later, as we become reconciled to the parting, we see that death may come as a solace to some; that it may mean the entering upon a new. fuller living. If we arc large enough, we see the hand of God. Only through a great sorrow can great happiness be born. The quiet, full joy that comes from knowledge of the immeasureablc pains of parting is vouchsafed only to the few. They arc not "as little children. " but they have reached a plane that is the highest attainment on earth. I often wonder if the happiness made evident by the light in the eyes of mothers is not also God-given Mothers. poorly attired, who lead their children out of their own quiet limitations, down the busy city streets Mothers. who hunger that their babes may have sustennnee. I'he few drams of joy that serve to make their existence bearable is not come by way of selfish gratification. If they can see their children made happy, see their children obtain the right vocation, they reflect the joy that emanates from the child It may well be said that a mother's joy is a reflected happiness. As I move among the throngs of shoppers during the season before Christmas. I sec many, many mothers some gazing longingly at cheap articles in a novelty store, which may serve to brighten the lives of their children, others sadly and futilcly pulling their children away from enticing counters Then I wonder about happiness. Would that I might put at the disposal of these mothers or these children the means of gratifying their few wants; and that I might thereby gain the grace of seeing in their eyes the light that speaks of happiness. A. Hf.nnf.man one hundred twenty-sixTime represents a measure of duration or existence, but it has a deeper significance It is not merely the shifting of granules of sand in an hour-glass nor the incessant revolutions of hands « n the face of a clock that produce the far reaching results of time Neither is it longevity that makes life worthwhile. Nothing has been gained by an individual who has sat with folded hands and listened to the striking of the hour. Long life has not proved necessarily conducive to well being. Many animals live to be centuries old. yet they arc not benefactors of mankind. Jesus Christ ascended from His earthly life before He had reached I lis prime, but his existence was such a beacon light that it forms an ideal for all generations. I"hc Constitution of the United States was not written over night, but until to date no better document for the administration of our government has been found. Time is measured by the type of daily living exemplified, the worth of the deeds accomplished. I have often wondered why thc'May-fly. that insignificant member of the Ephcmcrida. is brought into the world to live but a few hours It has accomplished only one visible task, that of reproduction. Perhaps I shall never know its real purpose But now in a spirit of comparison I do not find its period of existence is minute. After all. is not our own lives but brief pauses in the passing of the ages! Because of the shortness of our earthly life, and because time does not wait for us. it is important to make the most of our allotted time. None of us knows when the last breath of life will expire from our bodies Certainly. we should do something to justify our existence before it is too late. Each minute we are losing some- thing that is impossible to regain, something that is more precious than gold. Furthermore, no one individual has a monopoly on these moments. They arc not bought and sold in a market. Every person has twenty-four hours in each day. und the par value is determined by the owner. In our modern industrial life, time has become more and more important We begin and end work by a fixed time schedule. Meals arc eaten, rest is obtained, amusement is enjoyed, and even charity doled out. all by a highly complicated regulation of time. Yes. we reserve the Christmas season as the period in which to display our charity It is well to follow this system, except that there is a tendency to forget that during the entire process. there is a passage into Eternity of priceless moments and unless, ut the end of the day. we can say that the world is better because we have lived through the day then those moments arc a part of oblivion because they have been wasted. It is well at this interval to think of Franklin's maxim, ’T ost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff that life is made of.” I do not believe that life and time can be separated. I hey arc synonymous terms One cannot exist without the other. To us. each of these mean everything. Yet in the sea of Eternity, a lifetime amounts to no more than a grain of sand on a beach But if we do make the most of our brief earthly lives, the good may be lurge enough to form a radiant and sparkling pebble on the beach that will cast its light on all Eternity, und example of worthwhile and righteous living L.H.

All is silent save for the steady beat of the rain, and the heavy, painful breathing of my sick dog Marta—her name is Marta. Why she was named that. I don't know. I didn't name her. It was some German woman, perhaps, living a life of sordidness and drudgery, who gave vent to the remaining spark of romance in her life and called this little white and brown dog Marta. I paid one dollar for her. And. oh. the dollars' and dollars’ worth of perfect companionship 1 have gained from her! Truly, there never was a dollar more wisely invested. It makes no difference that she isn’t an expensive lap-dog or that she doesn’t have a long pedigree. She is mine, a product of my own training. We understand and love each other. I go into the room where she is lying on her bed. Poor little Marta! There is no wagging of her tail in a friendly greeting now. She just lies there. It is an effort for me to look at her. 'live bright purple liquid the doctor put in her eyes creates a fantastic effect. It reminds me of the heavily made-up eyes of an actor off-stage The brown spot in the center of her back stands out strangely against the white, emaciated little body. My heart swells with sympathy for her as she tries to breathe. I am so helpless. I turn away. Outside the rain is beating down on the pavement. The street lamp plays with its own reflections in the little pools of water. The rain falls heavily, and seems to rise again in smoke. The houses stand desolate and dark. People are asleep there. They are forgetful of the cares of the day. Their masks arc thrown aside. They are natural now as they sleep. Tomorrow they will be the same as they were yesterday, but tonight they are different. 1 stand in the doorway and watch the rain, and I think about people and Marta. A stray dog appears in the alley. Where did he come from? What is he doing there in the dark and rain? Nobody wants him. No one would care if he were sick. He senses that I am near and watching him. He cocks his head and looks toward me for a moment. We stand thus, wondering about each other, and then he disappears. I turn back into the room, and give myself up to the gloom and the despair that permeates the night. I know my dog will die. No one will care but me No one will ever know but me. And it will cast me deeper into this gloomy fog that surrounds me. making it more dense and more difficult to escape.

It merely meant that tomorrow would be just a little bit worse than the scries of yester-duys she had so assiduously schooled herself to bear. It meant that tomorrow she would again have to play the part of the gracious, tactful, service-giving clerk. And she could do it. she reflected bitterly. Even Mr. William Kelley himself had been known to say that Elizabeth Downs could sell stockings with an air. But she was becoming so submerged in the odious part that she had little time to be herself—the Elizabeth Huntington Downs whom since infancy she had been taught to believe the aristocrat of aristocrats. By the time she was five she had thoroughly learned the chief lesson of he young life—that though she was also a Downs, she was primarily a Huntington. At eleven she was known as the Princess. She accepted the title complacently, with no touch of vanity or conscious superiority. During her high school days the name clung, receiving greater justification for being from her every act. Should any transient unhappiness mar the perfection of her day. the one consolation offered her by a loving family was that "after all. she was a Hunting-ton. " Occasionally, some careless relative would remark that Elizabeth was part Downs. But at this. Elizabeth mother would smile reassuringly, and the Princess, fully understanding that to be even half I luntington was quite an achievement, was undisturbed. Every honor that could be accorded a girl with brains, beauty, and charm, was hers. Her ambitions were imposing. Albeit a kind and tolerant friend. Elizabeth I luntington l wn5 was the most exacting of taskmasters with herself. She expected and accepted only the best from the Princess. And her family, her friends, even slight acquaintances, encouraged her in this belief in herself. After her graduation from high school it began to dawn on her that no plans were being made for the furtherance of her education. At first it seemed impossiblet then improbable, then an actuality, that she who had the native capacity for unbounded achievement should be a failure because of a lack of education. Furious with all the fury of thwarted youth, she lashed out at her family. It wasn't fair, it wasn't right, to have brought her up to expect so much of life and then to leave her strand-cd; to have educated her ideals, her ambitions without providing the education that would satisfy them. The street urchin was happier than she. for at least he wasn't frustrated. His ambitions were in proportion to his station. and he had the means of achieving his happiness. She did not. But because of the stricken look on her mother's face, her anger abated. After all. perhaps it was worse to be an unadulterated Huntington, even though middle-aged and unsuccessful. She was only half Huntington, and though she had always had the culture, she had never had the luxury of her mother's girlhood. And she was still young. Her father, miserable in her misery, wrote to his sister Elsie, who had ignored him since his marriage to a "blue blooded little snob" and had become intolerable in her complacency as a wealthy brewer's wife. However. Elsie, with a benevolence probably affected to some extent by the echoes of Elizabeth s charm, would love to have her in their home during her attendance at the university. But Elsie inconsiderately died just at the crucial moment And while a Hunting-ton Downs might be acceptable to a well-oiled Downs household, she would certainly be unwelcome under the circumstances. So Elizabeth Huntington Downs devoted her time, her energy, and her amazing talent to selling stockings with an air. in Kelley's bargain basement. Anon. one hundred thirty-fourAdeste Fidelis It was the day before Christmas, and old Mrs. Crudden was energetically polishing already shining windows. Her old blue eyes were beaming ecstactically. and a smile trembled around her mouth. Johnny was coming home for Christmas—really coming this time. She had written, and asked him to bring his wife. She had never seen John's wife. What would she be like? Suddenly a panicky feeling gripped Mary Crudden with icy fingers. Suppose suppose John didn't come! He had promised so many times, and then something would always come up at the last minute to prevent his coming. A little prayer arose from her troubled heart. Oh. God. please don't disappoint me. I couldn't stand it this time. I've planned so on his coming—and he promised. After this short but fervent prayer, Mrs. Crudden felt better. "I'm a silly old woman." she said; "of course Johnny is coming, and he is going to bring his wife, too. She set to work more vigorously than ever. She cleaned and scrubbed until her cozy little home fairly shone. She put holly and a huge red candle in the window. the candle to be lighted as soon as it grew dark. There Mrs. Crudden sat down “to take a five" as she always called her little snatches of repose. In just a few moments, however, she was busily engaged in the kitchen. Johnny had always said. “Nobody can cook like you. mother." Tantalizing odors began to seep through the little house, as monstrous mince pies began to bake in a hot oven and cranberry sauce bubbled merrily in the double boiler. It was while she w’as basting the turkey, reposing in all its glory on the spotless kitchen table, that her heart began a frantic pounding. This soon subsided into a slow beat, until Mary began to wonder if it were beating at all. She clutched at the tabic weakly. " I shouldn't have tried to do so much. I might have known— ' . I Icr voice trailed off. and she took a few faltering steps to the three-cornered cupboard and took down a small bottle of brandy. She poured out a small portion and sipped it slowly. She could feel the strength ebbing back into her frail body. "Heavens! Johnny and his wife wil' be here soon." she suddenly remembered. She must light the candle, it was growing dark. This mission fulfilled, Mary brewed herself a cup of tea. and lighted a fire in the fireplace. She would sit in the in the firelight, and wait for Johnny and his wife. As she sat there brooding over her tea. her mind was filled with memories of long ago. The night Johnny was born—the death of Johnny's little sister. Kathleen—the sorrow and heart-break when her husband died -then the mellowing of that grief through the years. Her pride was from the beginning centered in Johnny and his accomplishments. He was so dear, such a sweet boy and so thoughtful And then a new sorrow— Johnny felt he couldn't get ahead in a small town, so he left to make a name for himself. He had. too. I Ic hadn't forgotten his mother, either. He sent her money regularly. Of course, he hadn't been to see her. but then it was hard to get away. And now he was married, and he was going to come and bring his wife tonight. They'd be here soon. too. Just think, to sec her boy again! Mary reached over and switched on the dial of the radio that John had given her. and the poignant strains of "Adeste Fidelis ' filled the room. Peaceful and happy, Mary Crudden drifted into a light slumber. Suddenly a loud stamping on the porch awakened her. Her heart seemed to leap to her throat as she whispered. "'My son - my son. " She half arose from the big chair, delight and anticipation revealed n every outline of her figure. Then slowly Mary Crudden slumped back into the chair and her snowy head dropped back on the soft cushion, that delighted smile still lighting her soft old face. Outside, the messenger, growing impatient in the cold, stamped to the window and peered in. There he saw Mrs. Crudden in the firelight Something in the rigidity of her posture frightened him. for he ran quickly next door to Mrs. Gorman’s. "Hey. I think sumpins wrong at Mrs Crudden's," he gasped at the astonished Mrs. Gorman. You's better go over thpre right away—an' here's a telegram just came for her." Mrs. Gorman drew back softly, her eyes bright with tears. Yes. Mary was dead. What a cruel prank of fate, on the very night her son was coming home at last uftcr all these years. Then she remembered the telegram in her hand. She tore It open slowly, and began to read. "Dear mother, sorry, but can’t make it this time. Unavoidably dteaincd. Sec you sometime soon. Merry Christmas. Ixjvc. John.' The yellow paper fluttered from her hand to the floor, and lay there unnoticed Mrs. Gorman gazed at the peaceful figure in the chair, and whispered softly. •'Thank God. she'll never know.

M. one hundred thirty-fiveReality A huge electromagnet may uttract heavy pieces of steel to it and then lift them up in the air. but that is all it can do. It has no effect on men. A magician with his hypnotism may control the actions of his subjects, but that is all he can do. He can not regulate the emotions of men. An individual with his magnetic personality may attract men and women to him. and he may even influence those about him to be sad or merry as he wishes, but that is all he can do. He has no profound or lasting effect on men. His company is pleasing, but not deeply moving. It is the spirit of Nature that is the most significant. Whatever the mood of Nature, man's emotions respond to it. As an overcast day is depressing, so us a sunshiny day cheerful. All the elements of Nature work together in harmony as do the instruments in a symphonic orchestra. Man is attracted by this harmony. and his senses react to it. Nature plays skillfully on all the strings of the emotions, from joy to gloom and from peace to turbulence. If you dare, try to hold private communion with Nature and still resist Nature s spiritual force. Try to walk in silvery silence on a winter's eve across the glistening snow-blunkcted ice. under the brightly shining stars, and yet not feel a thrilling elation. Try to stand witness on a fresh Spring day to the awukening of plant and animal life, and yet not feel new life surging through your veins. Try to look unfeelingly on the rays of the sun on a Summer's morning, and the merry reflection of foliage those rays by countless dewdrops. try to see Autumn's take on gay and beautiful hues, without having your pulse rate increase' After all. man is but a part of Nature. Anon. That Fatal Knock In the remote and mystic region of Creation, the Master Planner is forming a life. I Ic has the material in a mortar. Into this he drops three drops of a crystal substance; then he gently rocks the bowl. ' Another life planned, and I am rather pleased with the outlook for it. She will be an essayist. She has the desire to write; and here arc English classes to serve as opportunities for expression. Now I add the ability to find subjects to write of. But wait a moment, she has nothing to write with. I must add talent, daring. originality." But He is never to add this. There comes a knock at the door, and my life is forgotten in the critical moment of its history For it is my life He is planning. 1 was meant to be an essayist. Oh. I don't mean the Emerson type! I could go into long and involved reasoning to prove that even Jack is a bad little boy and Jill a good little girl. Jack and Jill will certainly not suffer, for before they leave this realm. Jack will certainly be rewarded for having to suffer for his badness, and Jill.will surely find tribulations enough to make up for her glldncss. No. even though I had the ideas of Emdrson, the words would trip me. If it hadn't been for that knock. I should have written essays about the thoughts people think when they arc angry, cynical, whimsical. But the knock did come, and here I am -just another person who can think of reams of subjects to write about, but who just hasn't anything to write with. First there is the essay on shoes I believe I shall write that sometime, if there ever comes a time in my life when I can think of shoes without having to remind myself that I should spend three dollars and get another pair, I should have saved money. And the one on the art of keeping a hole in one's stocking hidden—I shall write that when I once learn the art. Just now I’m too busy learning it to be bothered with anything else And I'll write the one on trees when the learning process has been completed. 1 now have two perfectly lovely lines finished. But if I put them at the beginning. my fond readers will be disappointed by the rest of the essay. And should I put them at the conclusion, no one would read that far, and thus the lonely child of my brain would be lost forever. I have one planned wherein I dwell upon the pleasures of peering into lighted, uncurtained windows as I pass houses in the evening. I'd write that but what an awful confession to make! To tell my friends that I peer into their lives when they least expect it! I blush at having put the suggestion on paper! And the one on faculties. I could say "loads " about them. But do you really think it would be wise to release that ? Just at present my life is too closely involved with faculties to impair my hopes of happy association with them to that extent. Yes.

I am not just one of these people. I am an observer. I have never noticed before, but Smitty. the owner, is certainly a quiet person, lie never talks, his face shows no emotion no matter what is happening. 'I"he entire town is like him. The inhabitants, to a great extent. are bootleggers, pickpockets, out-of-season hunters. The world does not know this—cannot know this. Only those who live in this town or sec it as I do in the summer, could know that this calmness, this placid, stolid small-town life, is just waiting for the revenue officers to raid something. live petty gossip that is a part of every small village goes on arid on. It is picked up by three of the village characters, whose headquarters arc rocking chuirs outside the hotel doors, and is relayed through the wife of the hotel manager. But it is not the petty gossip that makes this place interesting. The village is built upon the uncertain support of a summer resort, and may at any moment lose popularity and topple into non-existence. Yet none of this shows on the surface Life throbs below the street level in saloons that would be complete even for a large city. On the short two-block strip of pavement the mayor strides along.

I do not know how manv times that they arc able to do this, but Tiger came bach at least three times He was only a stray cat that came up to our cottage one day and decided to stay. We, having no objections, let him stay. Inc first time he was stricken with some sort of feline consumption We took him to a veterinarian, and he told us Tiger must die, as the trouble was incurable. Behold, in a few days Tiger was as well and as full of life as ever. His second resurrection was more convincing. One hot day in July. Tiger decided to go swimming with me. It was uuite a way to the beach, and Tiger was worn out by the time wc got there. On the way back he began to pant like a dog. Instead of seeking shade and rest he went into a fit I stood by helplessly. I inally he threw himself in the air and came down rigid. I left him there—stiff and lifeless. Surely this was the end. The next morning he strolled in through the gate, waving his tail nonchalantly. Tne third occurence was still more convincing. Tiger had taken to the grasshopper habit. This habit is to some cats what the drinking habit is to some men. It gets hold of them and slowly undermines and wrecks their lives. So it was with Tiger. All through the long hot days of August, he would lie in the long grass and pounce on unsuspecting grasshoppers. After the grasshopper was eaten, he would pounce again. The more f;rasshoppcrs he ate. the sicker he became. We final-y had to brush aside sentiment and ask a farmer to drown him for us while wc were away for a few days. When wc returned. 1 called to him. from force of habit. I suppose. There came a feeble answer. It was as though it were a voice from the dead. A shadow of the former Tiger came crawling towards us. plainly showing that he had refused to be drowned and that he had been starving- except for the deadly grasshoppers. We tried to nurse him back to health, but it was too late. His constitution was wrecked, and he really died a few days later Even though I saw him die. I expect some day to call "Here Tigc" and find that he answers. Mrs. J. Piltz Morning A mist has settled on the river; Phantom ghosts of smoke touch the sky. quiver And mingle forever in ether.

Johnson Company -PHOTOQKAPHERS-ENGRAVERS-Eau Cl ire., Wisconsin one hundred forty-sixGood Breeding “A man's own good breeding is his best security against other people's ill manners. ” How many times have I seen people treated rudely by women and also by men. How many times the man s good breeding has prevented an awkward, if not disgraceful, scene. 1 have also seen women who have used good manners with other women who have treated them rudely. Good breeding is more than good manners. It is an inborn instinct to avoid giving offense whenever possible, and to do things in an inconspicuous way. Good breeding is honesty, morality, and good sportsmanship. It seeks farther than the surface in other people in order to feel the real person. That which passes as good breeding is sometimes not a part of an individual, but it is applied like a coat of paint to cover a multitude of sins. Good breeding is not confined to one class of society. and it recognizes no differences in wealth or position. It is a fact that wealthy people arc sometimes extremely ill-bred. A well-bred person is not an aristocrat; he likes a gentleman in any class. It is a sad fact that Americans have separated into very distinct classes. A gentleman is secure in his own superiority, although ne is not egotistical. I le is sorry for those people who have bad manners. I le always meets them courteously, and unintentionally makes their bad manners seem even worse in contrast with his good ones. When I speak of people with bad manners. I do not mean those people who have failed to learn certain social graces because they lacked the opportunity to do so.

When an old man enters the hospital with a diagnosis of''senility," he is sent to 249. Being a patient in 249 is a tacit admission that you are too old to be of any use whatever in this world, und that there is no warm chair in the corner for you in anyone's home where you may nod away the last years, warmed by the memories of what has been. Sometimes the tenants of the beds in 249 stay on for several years. Some of them arc quite active lor a time. Monstad was as spry as a cricket—a rather elderly cricket, but chipper, nevertheless—until this winter.

Old Monstad is not deceived. He knows it is his turn to vacate a bed in 249. He thinks u great deal as he is lying there day in and day out. and his thoughts turn often toward those empty beds. They have not always been empty; once there were four old men together in 249. Old Luckcn went first He was lucky—a niece who had "married well" came and carried him off to live with her The three old men who were left often speculated on Luckcn s good fortune. Old Charlie Johnson was the next one to leave an empty bed in 249. Testy old Charlie, whose bulging eyes, bald head, and sagging cheeks reminded one irresistibly of a walrus Charlie, too. was active for a time, although he walked more slowly than Monstad. and tapped his way along with a cane Poor Charlie! He was not the best company, because of his irascibility, which grew on him with age. but you hated to see him go. He was quite well off. it was known, and when the bank closed in the great flurry of bank closing in 1931. old Charlie lost everything He was too old to recover from such a shock. He took to his bed. and in a few weeks there were only two old men in 249. As he turned it over in his mind, lying there with the pain in his side. Monstad wus glad that Baker was the last to go. Baker was the best company of the three who were gone. Age had mellowed and sweetened him, and he had always been one to think and do the right thing by his friends. For years the old man had gone around visiting the other patients in the hospital, cheering and comforting with simple, kindly voice. Two years before, though. Baker, too. had begun the downhill journey. He lay on his bed a great deal, and grew finicky about his food. Monstad saw the signs and knew in his heart that before many months he would be saying good-bye to Baker, but when Baker began refusing requests to sing, he was sure of it. It came suddenly and uuitc terribly. I3akcr had a stroke, and for a week he lay unconscious. Monstad hovered, a great deal, outside the door of the private room to which they had taken Baker when he was stricken, listening to his friends stentorian breathing, and now and then peering in at the pitiful face on the pillow. For weeks after Baker died. Monstad was very' quiet as he sat in his armchair in the hall. Then came the cough, and weakness, and at last Monstad realized that his turn had come. Sometimes be got into his clothes and shuffled out into the hall a bit. but he never sat in the arm chair now. Most of the time he spent lying in bed. looking at those three empty beds, and thinking—it was not a great while before there were four empty white beds in 249. Anon. Infinity A friend of mine once said that she was going to take a trip to infinity and see where all parallel lines meet. That started me to thinking, and I wondered just what the definition of infinity could be. From time to time you will hear students of higher mathematics speak glibly of infinity as the function of this or that. IIksc persons have, supposedly, delved deep into the intricate mysteries of calculus, trigonometry. geometry, algebra, and on and on into the subject of mathematics. Yet. if you ask one of these learned individuals for a definition of infinity you will get only vague, unsatisfactory answers. Infinity is an immeasurable quantity. 'Phere are no limits or bounds to the space, distance, or time that infinity expresses I conducted an experiment. I went to various of these so-called intelligent individuals and asked each one for his definition of the term I'he answers were as varied as the colors of the rainbow. Each one had an idea of the function, but was unable to state a clear, concise meaning. It was most amusing to sec these persons hesitate about something they so often used without a thought of a real interpretation of it. Once I figured out that infinity was equal to two. but that was a fallacy You can prove almost anything by fallacies, but you know that they are false. Someone in a Physics class asked what one less than infinity is. I suspected him of talking in his sleep. I think that I will never find infinity until I die. Then I probably shall not care about infinity. It is hard to think of space without an end. but harder yet to conceive of space with an end. K.J.M.

Clarice Chase broke three mirrors fifteen years ago when the family was moving. She is very sure that if this had not happened her luck during the last fifteen years would have been much better. "Jim" Barnes said. "I am very superstitious. I like to break mirrors, am especially fond of black cats, and would look for bad luck if I saw a ladder against a house and failed to walk under it." Two prominent A Cappclla members, Lester Gilbertson and Jane Mooney, never sing before breakfast because of the old belief. "Sing before breakfast, erv before supper." Jane also shuns cracks in sidewalks, because when she was still in hair-ribbons and short socks, she was told that to step on a crack was to break her mother’s back.

Can Animals Think? "Can animals think’" 1 was asked. I went to the biologist. He said. “A starfish placed upon its back always uses the same two arms to right itself. When the two arms are incapacitated, the starfish learns, after one hundred and eighty trials, to right itself with the other arms Did the starfish think? Go to the psychologist.” he advised me, "for he is more capable of judging this than I am." I went. "Can animals think?" I asked. He answered. "l ogs dream. Isn't that thinking? All animals form images, and that's thought. Animals think concretely; but they form no concepts. To form concepts. which arc abstract ideas, applied to different situations. a language is needed Creatures have no lan- guage. and man has been unable to develop one for them; therefore they do not think abstractly as we do. That's what divides man from animals. However, some people claim animals have a language we can't understand " He opened a book and read me the "talk of the Elgcrfcld horses: "Finally. Mr. Krall. noticing that horses tapped out of lessons. took down their tappings to sec if he could make anything out of them. Sure enough! Although the discourse was at times as incomprehensible as the first babblings of an infant, nevertheless there were fragments that could be understood. One day Krall told Muhamed that he was going to give him carrots: ‘Funuf (i.e., funf) replied Muhamed spontaneously. At another time he replied: 'lohn. hfr. gbn' (whann hafer geben —John gives oats) "One morning when Zaril had shown himself lazy, his companion was asked. "Warum was Zrif nicht licb’ and Muhamed answered. Weil vaul isd' (because he is lazy). ” 'And why is he lazy? " 'Weil r sagt begin bwul nijd wisn' (because he said at the beginning that he didn s want to know anything)." 1 went home thinking. I looked at my dog.

This year, incidental fees paid at the Eau Claire State Teachers' College by students who were residents of Wisconsin were forty dollars a student. How much did it actually cost the State of Wisconsin for each student enrolled here1 The enrollment for 1932-'33 including the Summer School, was Primary Course. 118; Grammar Course. 71; High School Teachers' Course. 400; Rural Course. 51; Special Students. 10; and Summer School. 51. This total of 707 students is an average of the students enrolled the first and second semesters, who will have attended school this year for thirty-six weeks, and one-sixth of the 300 students who attended Summer School in 1932 for a period of six weeks From July I. 1932. to June 30. 1933. the expenditures were capital. $10,731.25; maintenance. $4,514.43; and operation. $130,355.00. With the cost of operation thus at $151.000.74 and the total enrollment at 707, the outlay of the state of Wisconsin to educate each student during the year 1932-1933. was $214 43; in oth-othcr words. $174.43 net for each student. I’his difference between what each student paid and the amount just indicated as the net cost of educating each student was made up by the tax payers of the state. 1. D. W. Taves—I hear a knocking.

SURE AND GET IT AT LAURITZEN’S WIDE AWAKE SHOE SHOP Eau Claire, Wisconsin 209 Eau Claire Street Eau Claire, Wisconsin A Woodland Fantasy Once on a beautiful Autumn day as I was sauntering through a small tract of woodland. I came upon a spot so beautiful 1 stopped and looked in wonder. I sat on a fallen tree which barred its entrance to gaze my fill of its beauty. I sat there in silence for an indeterminate length of time. Suddenly. I was aroused from my reverie by many und various noises. I raised my glance and saw a dignified and solemn looking owl. perched on a tree stump. His stare which was directed at me was the very essence of disapproval. At his right was a multitude of various small animals. I was startled at so strange a sight and still more startled when I heard the sonorous voice of the owl boom out. "Do you plead guilty or not guilty of having brought misfortune and death to many of our kingdom ?" I understood then that I was to be tried for the needless and wanton cruelty of mankind to those little animals. I lowered my head and answered sorrowfully. "Guilty, your Honor." "we will then hear testimony against you, so that the magnitude of your crimes will be known to the court, and a fit sentence determined upon. Mrs. Gopher, tell your story to the court." A timid little mouse-like animal came forward and started talking. "We had just built our new home. It was a beautiful place hollowed out in the middle of the new com field. We were very happy together until one morning Mr. Gopher went out to get some food. I heard a cry of pain and agony. I rushed to the door and there he was caught fast in a trap at our very door. I tried to help him, but I could do nothing. I heard voices coming through the com field, and I hurried downstairs. I'hcy took him away then. Several days later I found his body without a nead at the edge of the field. ’ Mrs. Gopher was led away weeping. She was the very picture of grief and desolation. I'hc eyes of the court were directed at me. as though I was expected to defend mvself. How could I explain that the state had placed a bounty of five cents a head on gophers? How could I tell them that we considered them destructive to com? I couldn't, and so 1 sat with bowed head. I'hc next testimony was given by an old ja k rabbit. He appeared to be very proud and dignified. It was apparent that he held some position of importance in his tribe. " I shall testify for all of my race that we arc being brutally and callously murdered in wholesale lots. Men come into the woods with guns and shoot us for the sport of it. Formerly, they took the body away with them, but now. as often as not they leave the body lying where it fell. ITicse murders are needless, cruel and wanton. Our tribe is diminishing. We arc filled with grief and sorrow on seeing our loved ones dead and lying here strewn carelessly around the forest. I again remained silent, for how could I explain that science had discovered a new disease carried by rabbits that was harmful to men? I coud not. No matter what my reasons of defence were. I could never justify their reasons for accusation. I'hc various testimonies went on and on until the sun began to sink down behind the trees. 'I’hc birds told how they were being killed by mischievous boys--the beautiful tanager- the oriole killed for his beautiful plumage. The squirrel told his misfortunes in much the same manner us the rabbit. To all of them I had no answer. Finally the owl judge said. "l o you wish to say anything before sentence is passed? "Yes", I cried. "Yes. I can not defend myself. 1 can only say—" 1 raised my hand to brush the mist from my eyes and found the woods were empty and still. My voice rang out on the empty air. "Forgive us. little creatures. Forgive us ull our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass. Mrs. John Piltz Bob Halmstad (before the debate)—Our fate is in the laps of the gods.

Vanderbie JEWELER and SILVERSMITH Highest Cash Prices Paid for Old Gold EAU CLAIRE, WISCONSIN Interesting Companions Undoubtedly realizing that they have heretofore neglected the “Book of Books." many college students when approached with the old yet thought-provoking ouestion as to what five books they would choose for a desert islund companion, chose the Bible first. They gave no reason for including the Bible on their list— its value was taken for granted. However, the professor who has labored through tedious periods to make his classes appreciate literature will be proud to know that Shakespeare's plays achieved a place second only to the Bible. The list included such favorites as Hamlet A Midsummer Night 's Dream, and The Tempest. The choices of those who were asked the question ranged all the way from the classics to contemporary books. Joan Fisher confessed her fondness for Cyrano dc Bergerac, and James O'Donnell insisted on taking a copy of Milton's Paradise Lost. Edna Mary l ec named Galsworthy's Forsyte Saga. Undsct's krsiten Lavransdalter. and Millay's Second April. Choosing from American poets. Anne Hcnncman placed Leaves of Grass among her selections. The “practical" choices came from "Bill" Stafford and Eldon Pratt. As might be cxpxtcd from a science major, "Bill" would take with nim textbooks on botany, invertebrate zoology, anatomy, and psychology ' in order to better understand his surroundings " The cver-studious Eldon would take five books on the Einstein Theory, presumably feeling safe in the knowledge that he could never hope to exhaust their contents. “Bob" Mills, however, thought of his physical needs first. Heading his list was Nancy Crocker's Cook Book, and then he added Shakespeare and a volume of short stories to “guard against the possibility of going insane!" Anon. Hands Hands arc like the person to whom they belong. Somehow- the secret character of the person is told by the hands, although some of them do not tell the story very well. One day in the library my eyes wandered and came to rest upon a pair of hands. They were a striking pair. 'ITiey were coarse and worn, but the nails were beautifully curved and cut. What did these hands tell of the persons character? Without knowing the person, one could get an idea of the owner of those hands. We Thank You For Your Patronage IDLEWILD Always the Best Music Eau Claire, Wis. Again my eyes wandered around the room and suddenly caught a bright spot of color. A finger nail? Yes! This was another pair of striking hands The nails were brilliant red and the hands were milk white. T his pair of hands certainly “gave away" the person's character, and the story was very well told. Anon. Teachers’ Retirement Fund Cheer up future school teachers! When you enter the ranks of the teaching profession you will be assuring yourself an income for your declining years. In view of the past few years, wouldn't that appeal to a young person preparing to enter any profession? ITie prospect is made possible by the Wisconsin Teachers' Retirement Fund. From the time a teacher has attained the age of twenty-five years, he automatically begins to save money for this fund by paying in five percent of his income, 'lire state, out of its income from income sur-taxes. then pays into the fund a constantly increasing sum. from year to year, and then in addition to this the state gives each teacher a bonus of twenty-five dollars each year. Any Wisconsin teacher is privileged to retire after having taught for twenty-five years and reached the age of fifty, and receive a monthly income for the remainder of his life. Depending on the amount of the teacher's income and length of service, the monthly payment will range from twenty-five dollars or more each month. In the event the teacher dies before retiring from the profession. the entire fund accumulated to his credit is paid to his estate, just as life insurance is paid. This phase of the Wisconsin teacher's opportunities is one that is not usually understood by many people. even those contemplating a teaching profession. Anon.

The new store of facts was brought to light by a general information test administered (without previous warning) by Mr. Fox. Some of the amazing and almost "Riplcy-esquc" responses to the test questions revealed the following data: Zook (United States Commissioner of Education) is a river in Russia, also the Chief of the Soviet Korea is an island in Japan, or as one Senior would have it. "the Mohammedan Bible." Carthage, despite the teachings of our geography and history teachers, may be located any where except in America Amur (river in Manchuria) is now Mayor of New York. La Guardia has mysteriously become the Commissioner of Education. This is a secret unknown even to President Roosevelt. The Volga is a river in Manchuria. Hypotenuse, that banc of the mathematics student struggling with the Pythagorean proposition, appears in the new light of a character in Greek mythology- The Fox. Rock, and Chippewa rivers flow into the Wisconsin River, the Mississippi River, and l-akc Superior. simultaneously. Racine and Kenosha have moved to the banks of the Mississippi. Perhaps the mayors of the two cities preferred a river location. The Magna Carta is a charter drawn up by the Pilgrims before landing at Plymouth Could it be that English historians have been mistaken these many years1 If so. there is a chance that they were wrong about Feudalism, which one Senior defined as “a social practice in the Kentucky mountains, in which the natives engaged in feuds.Feudalism was also defined as "an industrial system in France during the French Revolution."

Mr. Quclla James. I wish you wouldn't whistle at your work. James Bliss—1 wasn't working; I was just whistling. Good Sport Down the street he trudged, looking neither to right nor left. His shuffling gait made him appear old. but he wasn't old. A stranger would have guessed his age at forty-five. 1 le was thirty-four. His frayed overcoat. drawn tightly around his neck against the bitter wind, hung on his withered frame like a gunnysack. Completely hidden by the collar of the coat arid the slouch of his greasy cap. the man's face could only be fuessed at. Your guess wouldn't have been far wrong. lis face was thin and haggard, with watery eyes set in deep, dark hollows and a white slash for a mouth. No, he wasn't much to look at. Suddenly he swung off the brightly lighted thoro-fare and entered a door marked " I avern" a half block up the side street Evidently he was well-known for cries of "Hi. Jim." "Howza kid." and "You're late" greeted him I le waved a grimy, tired hand, smiled a wan. tight, little smile and moved toward the knot of men seated at a large round table in the center of the room opposite the bar. Although the room was crowded with every brand of humanity, there were no onlookers at the table. From it came the incessant clicking of chips and the whir and slap of cards. A mumbled greeting from the six players met Jim as he slid into the one empty chair. 1 le expected no more, l ew words were spoken in "Mucka's" sky-the-limit game. I ie strained faces would have relaxed for nothing. Never did eyes leave the table and its play- ers. never did hands cease to shuffle chips, and never did mouths open for a joke or a word—except, perhaps, a mumbled "open for two bits" or " I'll bumpyasixbits While he waited for the hand to close. "Jim shoved a five dollar bill across the table to the banker, "Muc-ka." a black, shaggy individual with a weak mouth but a strong face, decorated by a two-day growth of beard. The latter raised a questioning eye-brow—Jim usually bought ten dollars worth. The man caught the glance, and dropped his eyes, receiving his stack in silence. A fierce, burning rebellion rose in him against this hard man with the painted smile. Someday he'd beat him. He couldn't always lose. He'd win—he'd win today. As usual, the game was "seven-card Pete." Seldom did "Mucka's" game deviate from it unless it was for a hand or two of stud. Jim hated stud and never was dealt in. Seven-card was his game. While the fourth card was being dealt, Jim studied his friends There was Buck beside him. a born gambler, but getting a little old now. Once he had been in the big stuffl but now his game was taking on the unmistakable ring of tin. On Buck's right sat Jack Luggi. Little was known of Luggi—except that he was Italian. His dark face was never illumined by a smile and his black beady eyes seemed to bore right through each player in turn. Jim couldn't meet those eyes—a straight flush would have looked the other way. Leaning back in the chair opposite Jim sat a pale youth of nineteen. He was smoking a cigarette and waiting impatiently for the hand to close, for he had dropped early. In him Jim saw himself of a few years ago. If only he could tell this lad what he was letting himself in for—but. hell, he couldn't. What a ra2z he d get! Oh. well, it was none of his affair anyway. Lars, the remaining player, was a hulking farm hand who was always a subject of good-natured ' ragging " (when anyone was in the mood) for playing his cards close. He never won much, but he never lost. The hand finished. Jim drew himself forward with his elbows on the table and his chin in his hands. The deal had passed to the boy. Thirteen eyes (somewhere in Luggi s checkered past he had lost one in a knife fight) watched the boy's quick hands. Already he was recognized as a clever lad. Buck was dealt high with the king of hearts. He tossed in a nickle chip without a glance at his cards in the hole. Jim had a three-spot showing—two more were in the blind. Everyone called. ITie betting was slow, and although Jim caught his full-house on the third card, he was afraid to "bump" it. Not once did he dare raise. He won the pot. Two dollars and ten cents was in it.

In his pale eyes was a wild look of the conqueror. He had won! For once he had won! Now he'd work and work never unother game of poker. Perhaps, now he and Janie could— Slowly, shakily he rose. Holding himself erect with one hand on the table, he whispered. "A hdunred and twenty-four slugs. Muck!" Smiling his drooping smile, the banker shoved the notes across the table. The man clutched the money and wavered toward the door. The hard, blank faces of the six men followed him as he opened the door and wavered out into the night. A long, heavy silence followed. " Mucka " broke it. " This has happened before. He thinks he'll quit. Tomorrow he'll be here at the same time." The boy laughed a little shrilly but his eyes did not leave the open door through which Jim had just passed. Somebody detached himself from the bar and kicked it shut. Slowly the boy's eyes came back to the game. "Hell," he muttered, and lit a cigarette. Rod Van Every Blind Baggage Miss Macdonald (nervously) -Please don't drive so fast around the comers.

People arc going in and out; some buying things, some not. Over in one comer stands a slender young girl. She seems to be waiting for someone. Evidently the someone is late because she frequently looks at her watch, and the tip of her tiny suede shoe ncrvouslv taps the floor. I'hc luxuriant fur collar of her soft blue coat is thrown carelessly back, and I notice a tiny tag on the lining, which to me. being a woman, means Paris. Presently the swinging door opens and a tall, scrious-fuced young man enters. He crosses to the girl, whose face has suddenly been transfigured He whispers something, and the warm color on her face deepens as she shyly smiles at him. They go out. An old man slowly enters. 11c leans heavily on a scarred cane. He stands politely by the counter until the slangy voung clerk nonchalantly asks him what he’ll have. The man says something in a low voice, and the clerk summons the druggist from the back room The druggist and the man converse in low tones. The old man seems to be pleading, the druggist moving his head in a negative manner. Dejectedly the old man places his battered hat. which he had removed, on his thin, grey hair, and shuffles slowly out. A group of giggling high schtxjl girls come through the door. They mince along on their absurd high-hecl-cd slippers, droop their brightly dressed figures in front of the soda fountain, and order various concoctions known as "Bride's flight " and "Red I lot Sundae." While waiting for their orders they flirt outrageously with a group fo boys who have boisterously entered. ITw two groups call back and forth until finally the boys casually drift over. 'I'hc sodas are finished, the group merrily and noisily tramps out. In and out. all evening. the steady stream of people moves. The buying of a mere stamp, a newspaper, a box of chocolates,'some medicine -these are little incidents to me. but to the purchasers they may mean happiness or sorrow much deeper than would be surmised.

If she is to keep pace with the swift movements of this modern age she must have more leisure time for herself. Time to broaden her outlook. Time to extend the horizon of her activities. Time for the many social obligations that are every woman's duty. Electric labor-saving appliances are shortening the hours of housework for women. The electric washer, ironer, vacuum cleaner, and range all help her get her work done in half the time, and without fatigue. They have given women a new freedom that was possible in no other way. Use electric appliances for every household task. They’ll speed up your housework and give you time to do the things you really want to do.

The store windows arc brilliantly lighted. Ilic red. blue, und green lights shine on "the silver tinsel, which reflects their combined rays in a glory of shimmering lights. The Salvation Army hut seems isolated from the crowd. A half-frozen, poorly dressed man stands by the black kettle and rings the bell—steadily- monotonously -clang, clang! The people crowded in the street push and maul each other relentlessly. There is nothing as mean or impolite as a crowd. Their rudeness is so apparent that I often wonder how well-bred people can lose their breeding so quickly when they arc part of a crowd. Ah. the dime store! The windows arc a jumble of gewgaws, candy, kitchen utensils. Christmas tree tinsel, salted peanuts, and mittens. The store is packed. Ibe poor arc doing their Christmas shopping. Ibc interior of the store is a puzzle of counters, signs with numbers, and aisles with a confused mass of people milling around. The candy counter with its little packages of pink and white peppermints, striped candy canes, and big red Santa Clauses, elicits much attention and many sighs. There are many cold little hands that reach out or their too short sleeves, exposing red. chapped wrists, and many dirty little noses pushed against the high glass case. There is a pathetic look of longing in the eyes of these little urchins. Lora works behind this counter. Doesn't it bother you to see them. Lora? Doesn't it make your heart cry? Don't you wish you could give them some? Think of the wild delight and pleasure you could create. I look at Lora's face. No, you don't wish you could give them some.

Mrs John Piltz Fishing A number of years ago I used to stand on the little rustic bridge which spans the creek on my grand father's farm and watch the enamel-finned, speckled trout waving back and forth in the current. When it finally occurred to me to catch them. I had already more enthusiasm in the project than the average angler. Many times after that I tramped the fields and tasted the delights of the nature lover. Many line catches have trained my fingers to a delicate touch of expectancy. If I do not get the thrill of that characteristic spasmodic jerk on my rod one day. I seek it with a dogged persistency the next, and the next, until I do get it. On fruitless days 1 enjoy the heaven of the outdoor lover. I never go trout fishing without returning with a feeling of satisfaction and well being Today trout fishing has become a mama with me; 1 have advanced so far into its sacred precincts. 'ITris sport has the advantage of making life worth living. I experience the highest and most harmless type of ecstasy when pursuing the speckled denizens of the streams. When the turmoil of fife gets too strenuous for me. when fate deals me an extraordinarily vicious blow.

For years there has been a common superstition that horsehairs placed in water turn into snakes It so happened that Mr. Murray and a barber friend of his continually argued about the truth of this belief. The barber insisted that a horsehair when placed in water will, in time, turn into a horsehair snake. Mr. Slagg. to settle the matter, undertook an experiment Carefully, in fact most carefully, preparations were made to carry on the experiment very scientifically. Horsehairs were sclcctecd by "Art" Drier, who said that they had been borrowed from milk-fed horses and were obtained "root and all." Some of the prize specimens were placed in ordinary tap ’water; some in distilled water. Left in surroundings favorable for growth, they were observed from time to time. At the end of two months of ceaseless watching, the experimenters turned in the following report: “ I )ata. Some disintegration can be observed, but nary a single rattle can be heard.

This article was written by a member of the Periscope Staff The 1934 Periscope has a history of its own. Drama and near-tragedy were combined with the usual round of copy preparation and proof-reading, which attends the publication of every annual. The record of continued Periscope publication might very easily have been broken this year by the flood in April. The old familiar war-cry of "four hundred subscriptions or no Periscope” had accomplished its purpose. For six months the Periscope staff toiled over copy, and the photographer scoured the school calendar for every possible picture to portray life at the College. The 1934 Periscope was taking form. Then on April 3, came news of the Chippewa Flood and the badly damaged Chippewa Printery. One hundred pages of material were in the building, some of it already made up. Soon, however, word came through that the Periscope had been saved. All copy and engravings belonging to the Periscope, were removed from the building as soon as the danger became apparent. Before the waters subsided, about one hundred feet of the east wall and one third of the floor space of the Printery dropped and twenty feet of the north wall disappeared. The intricate electrical wiring of the building was completely demolished, and, worse, thousands of dollars worth of printing machinery was torn away. Four presses, including an especially valuable Kelly automatic, comprised the loss of equipment. Several days later one of the presses, completely ruined, was found lodged in the creek bed about fifty feet below the bridge at Spring street, and twenty-five feet from the creek bank. Two other presses were recovered but were damaged beyond repair. The Kelly Press has not been found. In spite of the damaged Printery, the Periscope was ready for distribution as scheduled. The Chippewa Printery set up its equipment in another building, and in less than a week resumed business. The interests of our customers was uppermost in the thoughts of the Printery Staff in the catastrophe. Knowing the importance of the Periscope to the School and the hours of labor involved, special care was taken to see that all copy and pictures were saved. We feel it a real achievement to get the book to the school on schedule.

A Masculine Dream The year 1940 saw the birth of a law that revolutionized the social life of the American people. Prior to that date, the lives of the men of that race had become unbearable, and the conduct of the men had become so fawning that a group of radical males organized. The purpose of the organization was to better the condition of American men, whom '.the women treated with less consideration than they did the curs of the street. The leader of this radical faction. O. Howe Wvze, was elected to the Senate in 1938. "Ifie Wyze Bill, which he fathered, was introduced several times before the Committee on Social Law approved it in the autumn of 1939. The bill was passed by Congress and signed by the President. Briefly, the most important points of the Wyze Bill are: 1 caching deference to women in the home, in public sch x)ls. or in any place whatsoever is a felony punishable by a minimum of ten years' imprisonment. Men ore to have equal rights with women at any and all times, and in any and all matters. It is a misdemeanor for any man to defer to any woman without reasonable cause. All female members of the household. unless they are contributing a just share to the family finances, arc to sec that the men of the house are comfortable, and they arc to subject themselves to the orders of the men. No divorced woman may demand anything more than half of the support of the children of a disrupted union. At the present day it is difficult to understand that such measures were once necessary. The adjustment covered a period of several years, as the court records for those years show, but the change has been complete and irrevocable. Robert Baldwin The Road of War Little Niagara, innocent little campus creek that it is to us. once, when Indian signal fires burned daily on Mount Simon, had a significance in the history of this territory. By the treaty engineered by the United States Government in the year 1825 to end the inveterate wars between the Sioux and the Chippewas, Little Niagara became a natural boundary. I fie boundary line, south to the mouth of the Black River on the Mississippi und northwest through Elk Mound to the Red River, according to the treaty, "shall commence at the Chippewa River half a day's march below the falls.” Ifius the territory, named by the Indians "The Road of War.' between the Red Cedar and Chippewa Rivers was finally divided. The Chippewa Indians, according to their own legends. once lived on the Atlantic coast; but. harassed by the strong Iroquois, moved west and crossed at Sault Ste Marie into Wisconsin, the land of the Sioux. Here the Chippewas finally made a weak establishment on the Island LaPointc. near Ashland. Armed with the guns and ammunition of the white man the Chippewas went forth to conquer the Sioux, who were still using the spear and the arrow, lfic Sioux were driven back to the Mississippi, and the Chippewas established themselves on the headwaters of the Red Cedar and Chippewa Rivers With this arrangement the country in the vicinity of Eau Claire thus became the "Road of War" of the two tribes. The treaty didn't end the wars; for. though pacified every winter by the fur traders, the Indians easily found reasons fer renewing hostilities on old grievances when spring came back again. A revengeful shot from the busn in early spring to even an old score was the signal for the fierce warwhoop. “Truth is stranger than fiction." and no truth is more strange than the fact that Little Niagara, once the marker of nations, today bears the appellation "Minnow Creek.” Mr. Donaldson’s new simile- People are as full of inconsistencies as a Russian mattress is of fleas. one hundred ixt]r- cvenStop at ABOTTS DRUG STORE Chetek, Wisconsin Compliments of CHRISTENSEN’S 211 South Barstow An Anology Mr. Murray—Why were you absent from Periscope meeting last week.

After riding the ocean for years, the word was taken ashore and signified a "fireplace or oven for cooking, built on land." (The kind I lenrik Hudson used to make broth for Rip Van Winkle!) Einally. the box was enlarged and put on wheels, any night its red and blue eyes may be seen pursuing a deep rumble over the plain. Caboose has ridden both land and sea. it probably will take wings and fly soon. In I rcnch. canape is a sofa ; in English cookery it is "a slice of bread fried in butter" and used as a base (sofa) for caviar. Thus Gulliver (had he known it) might have sat on a French canape and eaten his caviar from an English delicacy at the same time.

Pa said as soon as you "kicked off we'd buy a new car. Facing Mecca Mr Slagg Turn your chairs around and face this way. If you must sleep on Monday morning, do it in this direction. When Was Then?" Junior McCoy (translating)—Ihey were sitting on the porch holding hands. Mrs. Ayer (horrified)—Why. Mr McCoy, holdings hands then was very improper. The Major Knows Mr Simpson- Now, if we were to send you to buy some land, what would you look for1 Ev. Judd—A bargain. Mr. Simpson— Did you ever see a woman who wasn't looking for a bargain? Some Inducement Mr. Simpsor.—Everybody in West Philadelphia would have an extra job. If you boys lived there you would have a cow; you girls would have a pig. Paging the Bird A little girl was helping her mother clean house on a Saturday forenoon. At noon when her mother went to feed the canary, she couldn't find it. so she said. "Elvcra. have you seen the canary?" Elvera- Why. mother, it was in the cage before I used the vacuum cleaner around there. Correct Howard I lovey—I'here will be weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth among the wicked who pass on to the next world. Frances Whit warn—What about those who haven't any teeth? H. I lovey—Teeth will be provided. one hundred sixty-nineState Teachers College EAU CLAIRE. WISCONSIN The Eau Claire State Teachers College offers exceptional advantages for students.
