It is not meant unkindly; It' it has found or made a wound Tis that you sent it hlindlv. And as each arrow aimed by thee Its merry flight is winging, May loyalty to Normal be The burden of its singing. Then haste thee, haste thee on thy way, Thy message to deliver; Aim at each heart a kindly dart From out the Junior Quiver. Page tenPage eleven L President R. . Halsey.Faculty A grave, deep smiled, many-sided man. As strong as unafraid, A man to go his way with no man’s aid. Sky loving, stalwart as the forest tree. Brave, courteous, kind and good in all. A mountain man, who treads the height and knows tranquillity. How dearly do we prize thee; we who find In thee a hel|wr and a friend in need, Quick to respond and cheer each hardened heart, Hope, patience, strength, and courage to impart; To criticise, how firm, how just! indeed, Now strong thou art, and forceful, yet how kind! A bright frank face, a sweet kind smile That would all care and fret beguile; A noble mind; a gracious mien That makes us feel her presence keen; An interest in all; a sympathetic heart, Thus of our lives she becomes a part. Most carefully day by day lie deeply works ’mong number mysteries And smiles in work, as pleasant thoughts Bring quiet laughter to his eyes. And when the tasks are done He still smiles on, and sits The friend and counselor of the school.

Tho’ in stature short, It is plain to see, She lacks not an inch in dignity. With her dainty ways and happy heart. She takes the laurels When it comes to art. A jollier man is not found in the school, To he genial and pleasant he makes it a rule. The School Management class says there never could he For that subject another as clever as he. From opening a school, till dismissing at night For each hour of the day he can tell what is right. So calm, serene and dignified, She little dreams, that while She’s exhorting us most earnestly To improve our charming style Half jealously we wonder, “Will she ever us adore As she did those lucky Juniors of the class of nineteen four?” Page fourteen“the wisest man The best conditioned and unwearied spirit in doing kindnesses” and one in whom Each student finds a friend. A man of formulae, symbols, equations, Is tliis sweet singer of noblest song. A man of good deeds and noble persuasions, A lover of birds, who earliest among The school’s early risers is off and away With bis Audubon Club at the first dawn of day. Xo word, nor phrase, nor clause complete Comes lightly to my tongue, That worthy is of this lady fair, Of whom our Seniors sung. So gently firm, so kindly just, So gracious, frank and wise; 'Pbe patron saint of Senior class, Who laud her to the skies. There is a man named Clow; History and histories be does know. And when we to his classes go lie makes our standings rather low. But we never storm or rave or blow We don’t, because wo like him so. Dear is she to us all, Ibis teacher of Milton and Wordsworth; Dear to the Sophie and Fresh, whom she charms by her gracious demeanor. Adored by the jovial Juniors, who dedicate her their “Quiver,” Lauded by Seniors sagacious, honored and loved by the faculty, Patron of Browning club; ah, dear indeed, is this teacher! Page fifteen Wer lehrt uns taglioh in deni Deutsch t'nd macht uns klug und niaclit uns weis’. Cud ubersieht den “Deutschen Kreis? ' lien Dresden! Wer an die Normal sicli begiebt, I'nd Hilfe uns in allcun giebt. I'nd wird dadurch von all’ll geliebt? Herr Dresden! A patient, frank and pleasant man. Who dwells on the topmost floor Along frogs, and hugs, and creepy things. And pictures and plates hv the score; Whose words have much of the savor of Maine And whose voice doth much of music contain. In our Normal School there’s a famous preacher On “Hints in Geography” for the teacher, lie has faith in the “kids” and would do them no harm, But he scorns the old methods and the young “school inarm.” Loyal trusted friend, whose kindly words Touched with sweet comfort, makes bright The ways of some who sorrow here, Who by her smile and heart so light Keeps hope and courage ever near. Be she Martha, loyal to Cranford ladies, Be she deep in books profound, Be she making Grecian puzzles For Library Method’s class renowned; Be she weary, ill, or cheery. Sure no better can he found. Page sixteenNot “earthy” but a higher being, all lost In contemplation of great steeps, Interpreter between the stars and us, Who loves and lives the “blameless life,” And points us out the path to virtue By bis serene and Godly way. A woman of deliberation Who values truth and right And scorns things less. Who wastes no words in approbation We’ll all confess. lie’s the man who handles the chisel, And be who uses the plane; And he who down on the basement floor Continues ever to reign, While to teachers be argues his cause Till bis work seems minus all flaws. Who is sought by our Normal athlcticians ? Who is sought by our Normal and city tenniscians? Who is sought by the Freshman algebrician? Mr. Cool idge. Who is sought by his sonny, without discretion? Who is sought to sing “Joey” with great expression? Who is sought by the amateurs of the Phoenici(ons) ? Off to one side of Normal ball Ts a room which readily welcomes all. And this lady is found who reigns'supreme Over large classes, and keeps serene, Who is ever ready with repartee And often smiles at pranks or glee. “Right face—about march About march—right face!” Page seventeenThis portrait to my mind’s eye came, tlie while I thought of thee, our well loved Adelyn. Brown hair, blue eyes, a catchy smile, A stately form, and voice that is divine. Her nationality? That’s hard to tell: But a diamond on her linger says she’s “Welsh. Tho toiling daily for the school he loves, lie dwells unmoved by petty cares and trials. Inspired by high ideals and lofty thoughts; But if a kindly word or deed can aid Some weary straggler to adjust his work lie counts it greatest happiness to lend A helping hand and sympathetic heart. Where is tongue of wit so sure. Where is a manner more demure, Where is a heart more true and pure. 'Phan herwhom now we sing? Loved by the students full well is she, Illustrious her name “Annie Laurie” Immortal in song ever famous to be. For we sing her praise and glory. “And on that cheek and o’er that brow So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win. the tints that glow. But tell of days in good news spent; A mind at peace with all below. A heart whose love is innocent!” Always a pleasant voice has she. Always a sunny smile; And many a helping hand she gives To the students in sad sore trial. And whether they work in her classes Or just to the art room go. You’ll hear in the talk of these students, “Miss Bowman’sa peach you know.” Page eighteenLook and see on this page above Tli© picture of one we truly love; The picture of one with a thoughtful air, Helpful and kind beyond compare. In each student’s heart a place hath she. We’ll remember her always wherever we be. “She is most fair, and thereunto Her life doth lightly harmonize; Keeling or thought that was not true Xe’er made less beautiful the blue t'nelouded heaven of her eyes.” Kind is her reign as the reign of a Queen adored by her subjects, When at the end of a quarter, harassed and worn and worried The practice teachers seek her aid and children cluster for standings, Then is her soldier-like spirit wonderfully shown and apparent. Kindness, precision, and sense combined with wonderful wisdom, Dominate her life and express themselves in her hearing. Miss Mead . of course we shall miss her; Miss Mead every Normal girl loves. Hut nowadays they say in a queer secret way. She hath a strange fancy for doves. But jierhaps they don’t know Time only will show, If they’re right. “She is a woman: one in whom The springtime of her childish years Hath never lost its fresh perfume. Tho knowing well that life hath room For many blights and many tears.” Page nineteenAmong God’s little ones slio lives Xor longs for tilings beyond; But to that chosen work she gives In gentle, calm, and patient ways The fullest measure of her days. In the oflice oft wo see her, daily note her patient poring, Poring over teacher's records, records made in varied writing. See her making up the notice for rhetoricals, our delight. S( e her straightening out our rewords, as we tell her we were tardy, And explain our misdemeanor and she sends us forth rejoicing. Clara Marvin, friend of students; Clara Marvin, record koo| or. In our memory slialt thou linger. In the library with a pile ()f books almost as big as she, Sits this blue-eyed little fairy, Always busy as a bee. With a smile that’s ever cheerful. Does she greet the student corps, And the oftener they see her They love her yet the more. Jkfioof. acHoof.

Page twentyPage twenty-oneThat it may Ik- sa.ti o. u "they were good a well as great," we address these few words of comfort and inspiration. To those lesser ones who are daily about us: There were, in the year 1903, Juniors whose magnificence, as Juniors, has never lieen equalled, and. according to a great and mighty oracle, never will Ik- equalled henceforth. (Ireat they wcr indeed. The Juniors of tyo- mused upon their glories, ami dreaming, they grew, ami grew to their ideal—nay surpassed it: tho in their unconscious virtue magnifying the grandeur of those In-fore them, they knew it not. Yea. so have we followed the best in those Juniors who have gone before us; so have the lesser Income the greater: so even arc the Seniors of 1905 the embodiment of what was the greatest and best in the Juniors of 1903 and the Juniors of 1904. And let ii' not predict. Who knows when a man or a nation has reached the summit of progress? Who knows when retrograde commences? W'c will he wiser than those whose example has been our guidance and inspiration; we will learn by the demonstrated error of their prophecy; we will not predict. No one knows what lieth in the power of man. 'There will be other Seniors, will there Ik- greater Seniors? You have read the lioast of Seniors. Hearken now to their words of friendship and advice. Freshmen and Sophomores, little friends: The world, those uninterested ones who read this, may think it is not often that your way and ours meet. Hut what know they of ways in the land of Normal? They know not of Freshmen and Sophomore Receptions and At Homes (ten cents) to which all arc invited and Seniors arc urged to come. And tho many of us may have lieen too busy to show our appreciation in the most appreciative way. still we have seen and sympathized with the spirit which you have shown to us all. You have helped to make Normal life for 11s—you will ".tc remembered perhaps longer than your youthful lodesty would allow you to hope. 'To Junior , who need advice: You may think it presumptuous for us to advise you. we who but one year ago were where you are now. Yet that is just why we know so well that you need our advice. Last June the "practice" graduates of t x 4 seemed to make a tiresome, an unnecessary repetition of advice. Hut now we do the N.amc for you. Ve have learned the necessity of repetition. And, that our conscience may repose in peace, we risk the danger of your displeasure and annoyance, ami sav Once again: There are Friday night reports. There are Wednesday evening meetings at 4:15 (there may lie other Wednesday evening “meetings" but there are only these for 'practice institutions. ) I here are weekly test questions and spelling lists to Ik- handed in. There are nlans. and notices, and reports. There are boards to be cleaned. There is a quartcrW appearance in the morning exercises of your department ’There are "various” things to do—but alx ve all there is a page 4 to Ik- learned, to become a part of your Normal code, an active working force in your Normal hves. And now we have made the vaunted, the traditional boast of Seniors. e have sjHjken ;o you as friends. We may have said too much of ourselves; we Iio|k- we have said too little. Hut it there is anything left to say we leave it to you. O Juniors, knowing that you have appreciated our virtues and forgotten our faults. I‘age twenty-twoSENIORS Jknnik M. Jonks. Oshkosh.

The Ecstatic State of a Senior's Soul There is something strange in my soul Unlay, Something I can’t make out. There is something afloat in a mystic way, And 1 wonder what it’s about. I -ast night I dreamed such a queer little dream. Of flowers, and fairies, and things, Of a wood and a hill and a tinkling stream, And wonderful magic rings. 1'he fairies danced in each magic ring. And the streamlet rippled along With the love and the light and the laughter of spring All tinkled out in its song. The woodland rang with the sound of mirth. And the hills sent hack their shout; I or joy was ringing o’er all the earth That the Seniors were coming out. Just then 1 woke in the light of morn. With thought of the dream so queer. And the faint sweet sound of an elfin horn Said, “Senior, the end is near.” Page ihirty-fhrccPage thirty-four Junior Class.Page thirty-five Junior Class.Iii the autumn of the year 1904 there came to the Oshkosh Normal a mighty host of youths and maidens. From the four winds of the eartli they came and when thev had all gathered together as the Junior class they stood the largest, youngest—in youth there is some merit—wisest, wittiest class in this dearest Normal School. There have been none to dispute the supremacy of the class of 1906. "Pis only the old, old story— they came, they saw. they conquered, everything. Every honor that the Oshkosh Normal has to bestow has fallen to the portion of the Junior. An orator of sweet and subtle power, debaters of unequalled force and logic, students of unrivalled ability, jiocts. declaimed. musicians and athletes, are all included in this mighty class. And yet. with all these great ones among them the Juniors have ever l ecn quiet, modest, unassuming. Without demonstration, without display, they have gathered their laurels. Soon after their advent in the school, comment was made upon the exemplary conduct of the Juniors. “So quiet, so sedate, so serene." they said. The Self-Government Committee even felt itself a superfluous body in the presence of the orderly Juniors. Contact with disorder has in some measure dimmed this dearest glory, of the class, but still as a body they stand for strict and willing obedience to law.—Anarchy is an off shoot of “Seniority.” Numl crlcss arc the things that might be related of this class. Much could Ik told of the grace with which they participated in all social functions, of the loyalty with which they supported athletics, of the courage they revealed during the excitement of the “plague,”—only one Junior fainted.—of their good sense and cheerfulness, of their | crsevcrancc and faithfulness to duty. Volumes could Ik written of all these things. Could the talc be told with the style of a Bovcc. the wit of a McDougal. the gravity of a Velte. the sparkle of a Rowland, the cuteness of a Palmer, and the mildness of an Abbott, the tale would be such a product that the world would read and wonder at. But beyond mortal power is such a work, so half of the tale must go untold. And now in this “high tide” of the year the Juniors are alxmt to pass away. Re-stowing The Quiver as a parting gift upon their fellow students, full of the same perseverance and power and purpose that have led to the heights of success, they will go forth as the invincible Seniors of tqo6 for. “Some are l orn great, some achieve greatness. and some have greatness thrust upon them.”Will of the Junior Class—J905 Tis true, we are Juniors, but ere many more moons have set we shall Ik such no more. Fully realizing that our remaining days are numbered, and feeling that violent internal dissensions are liable to ensue if no will is left, we bequeath our holdings as follows: To you, O Sophomores, we leave but deeds of valor to perform,—but work to do; true, work it is, but work crowned with honors. On W isconsin's greatest river, many leagues toward the land of the midnight sun there dwells a tribe called Stevens Pointers, and in their midst lives a band named Junior Xormalites. Sophomores, with these must you battle wage, and great will Ik- the honors if you are victorious in the fray. Sophomores, by work, great deeds arc yours to perform: but deeds, tho crowned with honors, must Ik further rewarded. Therefore become not ambitious if we confer u|M n you the very source of our pleasures,— the responsibility of editing the Quiver of 1906. Hut altho it may Ik a pleasure to gather its pages together, take heed and do not overrate the pleasure nor underrate the resjionsihility. As the trust that we hereby put in your budding talent is great, we Ijeg you to acquaint yourselves well with your charge by purchasing a Quiver of 1905. Our exceedingly valuable collections of receipts on “How to Win an Oratorical Contest,” together with three orations, shall Ik divided equally among the Freshmen and Sophomore classes, provided they give the donors full credit for all original ideas. Winged with these stirring orations, and piloted by the advice contained in the collection of receipts, our flights have reached lofty heights,—they have extended o'er hill, o'er vale, o'er rugged mountain barriers; but as the language and thought in the orations are beyond the comprehension, beware and cast not about where the sands are treacherous,—where your foothold you might lose. All our interests in athletics we shall retain without provisions or questions thereon. Antique armor and all other paraphernalia that have seen service in the field shall go to the Class of 1908; if other worthy claimants present themselves it shall he divided equally amongst them. Our trophies, honors, and victories shall remain as a monument of our achievements; they shall, as stars, point out the path to success and renown. The answers to our 1000 letters of inquiry on the “Rail Road Question" shall be distributed among future debaters on that subject, and in such a way as our testators deem projKT. Anybody may apply for the same provided that all applicants choose sides for a preliminary debate, the question to be debated being, "Is the greeting that A. Gr-w-ld receives upon entering the Ladies Study more hearty than that received bv A. Sch-lm. All circumstantial as well as indirect evidence is to be For the purpose of assisting E.

Witnesses:Page thirty-eight l Sophomore Class.As it devolves upon us to say a few words about our attainments during the past year, we do so: but we do it with reluctance, for it is a well-established precedent for Sophomore classes to be modest and unostentatious. Xot only do we speak with reluctance. but we speak lightly; this is not because of the triviality of our accomplishments but is also due to our modesty. The class of 1907 has not lost any of the spirit that characterized it in its first year. —when, it will Ik- remembered, we won the admiration of all. thru our achievements in debate and oratory. Believing that the subject of athletics is an increasingly important factor in our professional training, we have identified ourselves closely with the different phases of the work. )n the football field the class of 1907 was exceptionally well represented. The second team could hardly have managed to live if its ranks had been depleted b Sophomores. Alt ho our career on the field has been brilliant, yet our work for athletics dcx s not end there. Others will agree with 11s that the watchful eye, paternal care, and keen business ability of a 1907 class-man have Ix-eti no small factor in the success of this department. Also has the class won distinction in other fields: Sophomore men manage the business affairs of our school pajK-r. The class of 1907 is the first class that has ever framed and lx-en governed by a constitution. As it is a departure from traditional doings, we take the entire credit for it, at the same time feeling confident that it is a far-sighted | olicy and one that will work marvelous reforms. I11 our first year, the class of 1907 established another precedent, a precedent that we hoped would Ik followed,'—we challenged the class of 1906,—then Sophomores, to a debate. It was a 1k 1 1 and ambitious undertaking, but victory came our way. The one great event of the year which we can not fail to sjx-ak of was the Sophomore reception to the school, in honor of the class of 1908. As others say, “It was one of the best, if not the lx-st, social treats of the season." But it was a literary as well as a social treat, as the program was interspersed with toasts and speeches by representatives of the different classes,—the Sophomores being represented by their president and “The Sandy Sage of 1907.” The event reached its climax with the reading of an unusually interesting poem, by our guardian and counselor. Professor Hewitt, on “The Immortal Sophomore." the title of the jxx-m being. “Jarvis." We have in the foregoing lines mentioned briefly a few of our doings, and we conclude with saying that the class of 1907. esteemed for its spirit of progress, admired for its talent, and commended for its liberality, will lx heard from again.Page forty Freshmen Class.Mr. Bryan once stated that a class should Ik proud to call themselves green. The Freshman class is proud, and is perfectly willing to lx called over-green. The first meeting was a good one, and the meetings kept on getting better and better until now, when we meet. Mr. Hewitt's room becomes so crowded that there is scarcely standing room. The class is very energetic, and several times has attempted to meet the Sophomores in debate, but each time they were jjolitoly refused. However, we will say no more about that for they entertained us so royally in the gymnasium on January the thirteenth that we verdants decided to retaliate. So we gave them a Washington’s birthday party which they say they will never forget. And well might we feel proud of our ability to entertain, for even members of the faculty said that it was the lx st they had ever attended. Then when the great event of the year, “The Candy Sale." occurred, much to the amazement and chagrin of the other classes, the Freshmen demonstrated their ability to construct the finest Ixiotli in the gymnasium. And how loyally did this, the youngest class, turn out to reimburse the treasury of the Athletic Association. There is also much honor due our class in the line of athletics, for what would football or basketball amount to without the Freshmen scrubs. The reserves of this year’s football team honorably completed a schedule liecause of the excellent playing of the Freshmen members of the team. ()ur work in school is also satisfactory. We work hard, ever striving upward on that long, steep path which stretches before us. Therefore we come to the conclusion that the Freshman class is the best, if the greenest, class in the whole school. Page forty-oneTraining Department Graduating Class.The Ninth A Class of J905 The class which recently graduated from the grammar room is unique in many respects. In spite of the numerous “falls from grace,” its members have always meant well, and let us hope, they will continue doing well. Ten of the class came up from the first grade together, and most of the others entered in the lower grades. The ranks of the class are almost unbroken, for since entering the grammar room, only three members have left it, ami in every case, illness was the cause. It is notable that, while, as a whole, the work of the ninth A has been good, but not remarkable, several individuals have won records which have been equaled by but two graduating from the training department. '1'he work of Morgan Davies and Elizabeth Halsey has always been the standard of excellence for the grammar room. The graduating exercises of this class were exceptionally fine ones. During the winter the “New England Club" was organized for the purpose of studying the times, customs, and authors to Ik- represented in the program. The class entered into the spirit of the New England times, and the entertainment was enjoyed by all who witnessed it. The class did credit to the splendid training they had received from Miss Marvin, Miss Gould, and Miss Arnold. The last meeting of the New England Club was at Miss Marvin’s home. The event was a library party, the members of the company, which included several distinguished guests, besides the class, representing something from New England history. Beneath the "light of other days,” represented by wax candles, the ninth A sat down to a good old New England supper. Some of those present fairly distinguished themselves with the amount of New England fare they “did away with." When for the last time as ninth A’s rhe mcml»ers of this class parted ways their unanimous verdict was that Miss Marvin was “all right." as a teacher, a friend and a hostess. Anger, Nia F..

Ik 1 Mr WILLIAM A M1DDLECAMPThe Class of 1880 lo the Editors of the Quitter and the student body: The class of 1880 ex|x rienced the flutter of excitement, the anxious hopes, the busv days which will soon thrill the hearts of the class of 1905. It seems a short time ago. yet a quarter of a century has passed, a long period replete with many and varied experiences. The class of 1880 was six in number. Mr. Arthur Burch, the master mind of his class, and a successful teacher for many years, has passed to the great Beyond. Mr. A. X. Fairchild is now teaching in Milwaukee. Miss Amelia Banning, for a short time teacher of drawing in this school, is at home in Fond du I ac County. Mr. Middlecamp and Miss Marble joined hands in the stronger Ixmds of matrimony a few years after graduation. Their children are among the students in the Model and Normal Schools. ) 'Phe other mcmlx r of the class, the writer, found her husband, home, and happiness in Oshkosh, and the critic and practice teachers of the Model School and the faculty of the Normal are teaching her children. Since the writer matriculated in the fall of 1876, the building has had joined to it its right wing, its left wing, the gymnasium and the Normal Avenue extension. There was then hut one literary society, the Lyceum. The faculty, which then numbered alxmt nine, has grown to be a large society of itself. Of the original number there remain but two. Miss Swart and Miss Webster. Professor Briggs became director of the Model School a little later. It was the pleasure of the writer to l e associated with the school for six years after graduation, and to form friendships with Miss Clark. Miss Magee, and Miss Apthorp. Our graduation exercises were held in what is now known as the Toadies’ study. u| on a platform located at the south end of the room. A subject that was suggested at that time was. “Our hark is launched, where shall we harbor?” In many cases, the answer is now known. Of all those who went out from this school in its earlier days, only one or two can lie recalled who made a failure of life as to character: only one or two about whom there might l c regrets or possibly humiliation because of shattered ho| es as to integrity and honesty of purpose. This is something to Ik prized far more than mere intellectual achievements. While intensely loyal to the Alma Mater, it is well to remember that the noble ideals of the past and present will fail in their greatest service unless they lxcome the incentives to nobler ideals in the future. A sermon from one who has watched the students come and go for many years, might be preached on the simple text, avoid conceit and self-satisfied airs. These block the way to highest worth and engender prejudice where co-operation is needed. May the coming years bring improvement and enlargement and higher ideals, and may each succeeding class reflect a brighter light upon the Oshkosh State Normal Sincerely yours, Carrie E. Edwards.

When we apjieared Ik-fore you a year ago we were but a few weeks old and had just begun to learn the A. B, C’s of parliamentary law and debate. Since that time we have enjoyed a year of uninterrupted growth. Our programs have been uniformly interesting and helpful; our outside activities of a satisfactory nature. Immediately after the holidays we took part in an inter-society debate; a short time afterward entertained at a banquet in the gymnasium: and recently held a declamatory contest with a sister society. But our progress of the last twelve months is not due to our socicty-meml ers alone. For Uncle Hewitt led us into the mazes of “Rules of Order.” Uncle Small outlined the policy of our membership committee. Father Dresden inspired us with the hope of future prowess, and our brother and sister societies were ever ready with their word of sage counsel and gentle criticism. YVc realize that we are not all that a literary society should be. but we have not yet reached the perfection of society work; but we hojx our success of the past to Ik but the prelude to a future marked by greater advancement. Wc endeavor to give our members training in parliamentary law. in declamation, in debate, that they may have the power to express their views whenever and wherever the necessity occurs. In addition to this we wish to throw about them at the present time the helpful influence of loyal good fellowship. We are proud of Philologian and can heartily sing— Our banners bright we hold upright, The Philologian; And here we stand, an earnest band. The Philologian; Thy name we love and hold alxive All others, for we can. Yes. thou art worthy of our love, O, Philologian.

Her struggle for existence has ceased, and she now stands as a most efficient trainer of the parliamentarian, debater, and orator. From the very beginning her members have lxrcn prominent in school affairs of all kinds, and the past year has proved no exception to the rule. Philakean has furnished her share of men to represent our school in debates, oratory, and athletics. This has lx?en done, despite the fact that the society represents but a small portion of the student lxxlv. The average annual roll of active meml ers constitutes less than one-sixth of the male members of the school and hut one-twentieth of the entire student body. However, this limited membership has been one of the great factors in the success of the society. In this respect her motto has been. “Quality, not quantity." In electing candidates to memlxTship the effort has been to maintain a high standard of qualifications. Hut it must not lx thought that only brilliant men are eligible. 'Pile Philakean Society is as ready to admit any ambitious and industrious young man as she is to admit the most polished student. The work of the society in its regular meetings consists of debates, lx k reports, recitations. and talks.

They don't seem to notice. 1 do wish young people would be more observing. They don't see half their opportunities. Perhaps that’s rather harsh—yes. somewhat harsh, 1 fear. My Phoenicians are most attentive and thoughtful for young people, tho it did wound me considerably when they forgot to take me in to see the section play last quarter. Hut then—maybe they thought I wouldn't enjoy it—tho if I had known they were going to forget me I’d have gone myself even if I'd cracked myself in getting off this pedestal. "1 do enjoy everything that concerns these Phoenicians, es|x ciallv their debates—for after all debating is the best work any society can do. The way some of these young people have debated this year has been a great delight to me—a great delight. They should have more of it. Their declamations and talks have been particularly good, and their song—the society song—and yells—capital—but there should lx more debating, much more of it. I’ll see if I can't impress this upon the Phoenicians next year. 1 know they'll take my advice in the right spirit and carry it out. They always do. Admirable spirit among them, always open-minded enough to receive advice, and every one of them with the hand of good fellowship to give his neighbor. That’s what I like to sec, good fellowship and progress in a society, every one interested and active, new as well as older members. Fortunate and wise selections cf new members these Phoenicians have made —some of the best people the society has ever had as long as I've known it. If they live up to their promise, and they will, there’ll be great progress ami triumphs for the society next year.

Romden Secretary...................Tkssie G. Rowland Treasurer...................Arthur A. Sperling Critic......................Leonard R. Evans The Lyceum, organized in 1871, is the oldest society in school. It has always been one of the leaders in all forms of literary and parliamentary work carried on for the benefit of the school as well as for its members. The interest taken by students in society work, from the beginning of the school. ' has resulted in the organization of other societies similar to the Lyceum. By care and never ceasing labor the Lyceum has grown from a mere handful of students to a well filled, tho definitely limited organization. During the past year the Lyceum has been steadily advancing. A great amount of work has been accomplished in a practical way along many lines of literary activity. Early in the year the society resolved itself into caucuses for the purpose of electing the various state and national officers.. The work at these caucuses and conventions was carried on exactly as it is in a regular meeting of that kind. The manner of carrying on the work was so successful that its influence reached other societies, and Lyceum was pleased to receive visitors during that time from them. Another feature of our society accomplishments is the organization of a Lyceum Orchestra, composed of nine memljers, who furnish music at each meeting, as well as for society and school contests. An annual declamatory contest was also participated in, and during the past year we came in contact for the first time with the newly organized society, the Philologian. The members of the Lyceum were much pleased with the result. 'fhe annual debate with the Phoenix Society for the Lincoln bust has been one of the interesting factors in our society work. Much interest has always l cen taken b the members of both societies in this debate and this year is no exception. Our regular programs have been made very instructive as well as interesting by the use of educational subjects, such as book reviews, parliamentary drill, impromptu talks, musical selections, declamations and readings. With all our work the social side of school has not been neglected. Thru many little social gatherings we became better acquainted, and the leading event of the season was an informal reception tendered to the men of the society by the young women. Dear old Lyceum, may every year find you composed of as enthusiastic, as social, as hard-working a class of young people as at the present time.

Treasurer ...........Henry G. IIotz When a student conies for the first time to the Oshkosh Normal, the first organization with which he becomes acquainted is the Student’s Christian Asociation. When the train stops at the station, and he alights, a stranger in a strange city, he is accosted by a delegate from the S. C. A., who offers to act as his escort to the Normal building. However, if it should hap| en that he reaches the Normal without any such assistance, he is pretty sure to meet other members of the organization upon his arrival. If he enters the building by the main entrance, lie will sec directly across the corridor, a room labelled Information. If he has not yet secured a lodging or boarding place, he may find at this office a long list of such places with descriptions attached, from which he may make selections. Hut this is not the sole office of the Bureau. If there Ik- anything which may Ik classed under the head of Information and it lx asked of the officers of the Bureau, whether it he direction to the President’s office, or a guide to some remote part of the city, it will Ik- cheerfully given. But if. by any jjossibility, the new-comer escajxs both these chances of meeting members of the association, there is yet another opportunity remaining. On the first or second Saturday of the quarter, all students arc invited to a reception on the lawn, which is the first sixfial event of the year. Every one comes and gets acquainted with every one else, and all have such a jolly time that no one thinks of leaving until prompted by visions of a cold supper if he does not make haste. Becoming acquainted in this way many of the new students affiliate themselves with the association, which is one of the most influential organizations in school. The young men and young women have separate devotional meetings one evening of each week, and on Sunday morning at j:i5 there is a general student’s meeting in the Indies’ Study. These meetings are addressed bv students, members of the Faculty, or clergymen from some of the city churches. For the past year a double quartet has led the singing of the hymns and often furnished special music. A new branch of the devotional work which the members hope will prove very beneficial is that carried on at the Normal Academy. Young women, members of the Normal branch, go to the Academy one evening of each week and meet with the students there. Some of the women of the faculty have gone over and addressed these meetings. It is hoped that in this way the Academy students may Ik- made to feel at home at once in the Normal branch when they have finished their Academy course. At the Itcginning of each year the association puts out a hand-book of information which has proved of great value to old and new students. In this hand-liook arc the Constitutions of the Self-Government Council and of the Normal Advance, addresses of rooming and boarding places, addresses of the city churches, names and addresses of tlv Faculty members, a map of Oshkosh in the vicinity of the Normal, and much other useful and interesting information. The motto which the organization endeavors to follow is that of Usefulness. May it forever prosper and carry on its mission. Page sixty-oneSelf - Government 1.

Jones One of the largest and best conducted clubs of the school is the Glee Club, which meets every Thursday at 4:15 in the music room. The club is composed of eighty mem-liers, and with the Mandolin club represents the musical ability of the school. It is Under the able direction of Miss Downing, who thru continued effort and untiring patience has made it a success. Only the best music is sung and it is the aim of the club to make its members appreciative and efficient readers of music. '“There is no truer truth obtainable. I»v man than comes of music." In order to lx-come a member of the club the student must pass a satisfactory test in vocal music. The officers are elected at the beginning of every quarter and consist of president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and marshal. The concert given by Mrs. Genevieve Clark Wilson, under the auspices of the club was a decided success. Mrs. Wilson is a talented musician of Chicago and the club is considered fortunate in having been able to secure her services. The spirited applause and repeated encores expressed the appreciation of the audience for the selections which Mrs. Wilson rendered, and during the program she was presented with several beautiful bouquets. The ‘‘War Song Concert” given “cn costume" by the club is one of the delightful remembrances of the year. The program consisted of solos, duets, and choruses bv the members of the club, assisted by the Arion Orchestra and Normal Mandolin Club. The musical training obtained thru continued practice will be of lasting benefit to the members of the club, and one of the pleasant memories which the members will take with them when they bid farewell to their Alma Mater will Ik- the happy hours spent in the music room.

Barber Fianist...............................Lillian Ryder Truly, a student body wherein no delight in music dwelt were fit for dark deeds, nostalgia, despair. Our redeeming virtue this year has been a splendid Mandolin Club, the like of which this school hath never boasted in the past. It surpasseth all bass drum music, all brass bands of any institution, and bringeth joy unto us all. Early in the year when the question of organizing came up. it was found that rarely had so much musical talent adapted to this particular line of work lx cn found in the Oshkosh Normal. The result of this discovery was the bringing together of many excellent players. ()nc of the girls in school recently complained that she had to play “second violin in the orchestra.” Few realized that she really was complaining because she had to play “second fiddle." Hut in the organization of the Mandolin Club, this desire to Ik- first was either absent or. at least, subservient to the wish to have a club of which the school could well he proud. This wish was splendidly realized as is attested by the perfectly harmonious work of the club—both in practicing without discord and in spreading harmony. The school is proud of its Mandolin Club. No entertainment is complete without them; no reception, no contest, no debate, no drama, no candy sale, no celebration of victory, but the clamor of the student for the Mandolin Club. Kven the townspeople realize their excellence and after playing for the Public Library Reception and at the Century Club, requests from the city for their services were so numerous that all requests to play outside of school were denied. Many of the girls in the club remain in school for another year, and some others are expected to recruit the club in place of those going out. so we arc proud to say, “We not only have had a splendid record for the ‘Mandolin Club of 1905 but we arc firm in the faith that wc shall have as splendid .1 ‘Mandolin Club of 1906.’ " Truly, since their music hath power to ease the burden of care borne by the striving Normalites. we should never fail to give them a hearty word of commendation. Page sixty-sevenSchool Spirit i. Tin Oshkosh Normal is right in line With spirited yells and everything fine. It any one thinks these people dead, Just watch and sec them go ahead And get up a candy sale and bazaar, Why, the people come from near and from far. II. Does any one think the Xornialites tame? Just watch them then in a football game And see them jam and push and huddle, You would think the whole team in a muddle; lint no! they play with skill and tact, All their opponents admit this fact. HI. Their songs and games with joy abound, nd a right school-spirit in them is found, With all the debate and declamation The Normalites can arouse a nation Into contests they’ll enter regardless of life, And win like the Japs or die in the strife!

Schulze The German Circle has completed another year’s work. We began the new year with the promise that the character of the work of the Circle was to l e the Ik-si of any in its entire history. Altho our membership was somewhat limited especially in the ranks of those who constitute the “minority” in the school, yet we have most earnestly striven to raise the work to a standard never yet attained, and we can proudly say we have done it. Not only has our society l een a success in literary fields and in society spirit but also in social lines. Our worthy Herr Dresden showed his interest in the Circle In-giving us a German party. It was more than proven that our learned Professor of German is also a delightful entertainer. After an enjoyable program, games were indulged in and a German luncheon was served. How it delighted us to feast on coffee-cake and sweets. It seemed so much like home. During the latter part of January an unusual agitation was observed thruout the school. It was rumored that a novel treat was to Ik given by the Circle to its members and friends. How slowly the days passed! At last came the happy day. All were expectant. They entered the music room, where glory and splendor reigned. A short program was rendered, then all entered into a “peanut stabbing” contest. Refreshments were served and one of those good times typical of the German Circle was enjoyed. No doubt the excellent spirit and success of the past year has been due in a large measure to the untiring efforts of every member, each striving earnestly to do his part and to perform faithfully all duties assigned to him. W ith a spirit that docs not dim or darken, we, the old and loyal members of the German Circle, bid you welcome. Come, be one of us; let us hear your voices at our “council fires”—until then. lebcu’ohJ. Page seventy-oneoaii-X 1 Art Loan Club.

Rowland Assistant Librarian.............Edwin S. Billings The two-fold pur| ose of the Students’ Art I-oan Qub has been truly kept in view by the members of the organization, for each member, in addition to having a beautiful masterpiece to decorate his room, has cultivated a desire to learn more about the great men and women of art and sculpture. The club took up a line of work that was interesting as well as profitable to all. namely. American Art and Artists. This work was under the able leadership of Miss Magee. The one regret of the members h„s been that one meeting was lost on account of the closing of school just before Christmas. But even tho the meeting was lost the work which would have been done at the meeting was not entirely lost, for each member of the club had studied up the subject and all that was missed was the general discussion that is carried on at the meetings. I he work of the club is so arranged that it does not interfere with regular school work. The topics assigned are published long before the time of presentation, so the participants are given an excellent opportunity to prepare without taking time from regular school work. The club meetings are held twice each quarter, sometimes in the Art Room and sometimes at the home of a member. A short social program is usually indulged in after the literary program has been rendered. The Art Loan Club deserves the support of every lover of art and it is to be hoped that in the future it will Ik as loyally supported bv the student body as it has been in the past.

Pice-President................Arthur I Ii kiinkk Secretary-Treasurer...........Edwin S. Bii.unos Field Marshal ................Harry E. Snydkk I wo years ago the Audubon Society was organized for the purpose of bird study. At that time, it came under the head of Nature Study, and the work was carried on under the auspices of the Nature Study Club. But it was found necessary to draw a line of division at that time, so as to give more time and study to birds. Every spring before the return of the birds lectures are given by Professor Goddard, which are very instructive and interesting. Thru his lectures one becomes acquainted with the appearance and habits of some of the very first arrivals, also their way of emigrating. As soon as the birds ln-come sufficiently numerous, the society is formed into groups, which take trips into the country or in and about the many groves of the city for the pur|n»se of direct study. It is here that one learns to know and appreciate the beauty of these feathered songsters, who thru their gorgeous and beautiful colors, thru their charming and melodious songs, thru the joyous freedom of their lives, and thru the almost human qualities which they possess are capable of contributing in a wonderful extent to a love and appreciation of the beautiful and good. The society meets every two weeks on Tuesday night, at which time interesting programs arc given. Every Saturday morning, between the hours of six and eight, members of the club ride out to observe bird life on the outskirts of the city. The growth of this interest in bird study has l een very noticeable in our Normal School, and the aid given to other organizations, whose purjx sc it is to protect and prolong bird life, fully compensates whatever labor has been expended on our part. The society has a very large membership, there being about thirty-eight enrolled. I age seventy-sevenCurrent Topic Club.Current Topic Club President................ ......Walter P. Hagman Pice-President..................Waldeniar A. Wendlandt Secretary.......................George Wf.h rwei n Treasurer.......................A. Louis Simon Critie..........................Fred G. Bishop Early in the year there was formed one of the most beneficial organizations the school has ever seen. Several of the young men deeming it both expedient and necessary to keep in touch with the outside world formed what is known as the Current Topic Club. They drew up a constitution with strict rules and regulations to which every memlier readily agreed to conform. From the very beginning each member has been earnestly striving to make this club one of the leading societies of the school. That the club has maintained a high standard which in every respect is a credit and an honor to the school can not Ik questioned. The work of the club at the regular meetings is the presentation of some important question of the day by one of the members. The subject is then thrown open for general discussion, thereby giving each member a chance to speak at every meeting. Some of the important topics that have been discussed bv the club are: Doings of Congress, The Russo-Japanese W ar. Conditions in the Philippines and Panama, and The Subway in New York. Besides a discussion of Current Topics, a portion of the time of each meeting is given to parliamentary practice. Some member presents a certain part of Robert’s Rules of Order to the club, after which the part discussed is put into practice. To the young men of the school who are interested in this kind of work we extend a hearty welcome to become one of us. Page seventy-ninePublic Speaking Class.Public Speaking Class Under the able management of Miss Harriet Clark, the Public Speaking Class of 1904 1905 held weekly sessions during the first three quarters of the year. 'fhe class, with a membership of fifteen, met every Monday evening for the purpose of studying some of the best orations of the day. After two months of diligent work, the class decided to give two contests, one to consist of orations, the other to consist of poems. In the first contest held Charles I I. Vclte of Tustin won first place and was presented a prize cup by Miss Clark. The second contest was postponed on account of the forced vacation at Christmas time, and later when the oratorical contest took some of our members, the class decided to discontinue the work for the year. As the saying goes, “All good things have a good ending.” so the class of ’04-’05 closed with a pleasant evening at Miss Clark’s home. The members of the class extend their thanks to Miss Clark, not only for the pleasant evening, but for the earnest work and untiring efforts expended for the class. MEMBERS. Chris A. Rupp Emanuel M.

It was not organized for the purpose of ignoring the admiring glances of the sterner sex. as its name might imply, but simply to carry out in thought and in deed the old proverb so familiar to our grandmothers : Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Early in the fall, several of the women of the faculty met to talk alxmt ways and means for getting the girls interested in some plan to further neatness and orderliness in the Senior Study and the Ladies’ Study. Imagine the surprise of the girls when, a few mornings later, they were confronted by the same old theme that mother bad so often referred to. good housekeeping. 0. thoughtless girls, how little you know that others saw you when you threw those scraps of paper on the floor, or sent the black contents of vour pen in a merry chase after some crevice in the floor, there to lie until it became hard and dry. At this first meeting of the girls, the condition of the rooms was set forth; and the general sentiment was in favor of a movement for improvement. A committee of two girls from each class was chosen to unite with four members of the Faculty and form what has since been known as the Committee of Twelve. This committee met and decided to present the following recommendations to the students: 1. That a league lx' formed to lx known as 'flic Girls’ League of the Oshkosh Normal School, and that every girl, by virtue of her attendance at this school, and every woman on its Faculty, should lx considered a member of this league. 2. That the purpose of this league shall be to keep all rooms occupied by the girls of this school as clean and neat as jiossible, and to decorate the Senior Study and Indies’ Study. 3. That every member of the league pledge herself to keep the inside of her desk-neat. to keep all litter off the floor around her desk, and to do all in her power to improve the condition of the room. A scheme of decoration for each of the study rooms has been made by an eminent artist of Boston and the first steps have been taken toward carrying out his plans. In November a dramatic entertainment was given hv the Senior girls. Later Mrs. Merrill gave a musical recital. The proceeds from both entertainments were sixty dollars. We have purchased a fine relief. Bacchantes Dancing, for the ladies’ Study, and a picture. The Canterbury Pilgrims, for the Senior Study. Girls, the school year is near its close. Many of those who meet with us now will not he with us as students again. As we enter our school rooms in the coming year, can we not devise some way of beautifying them, not only for our own comfort, but for those who assemble with us every day? If we do this we are not only helping others, hut we are paving the way for our own future happiness.Page eighty-threeThe Oratorical Association One of the most important, vet it would seem one of the least appreciated, of our organizations, is the Oratorical Association. The organization should count every student in school a member, yet so small an interest was shown that the membership of the past year has been only a little over fifteen. It is the purpose of this association to bring out old and to develop new platform material. In this respect it has met with marked success during the past year. At the beginning of the first semester the usual preliminary debates were held for the purjjosc of selecting the school's debating teams. Because of the unprecedented interest in these debates and the large number of entries, two separate preliminary debates were held on different evenings. Two debating teams were selected. Owing to the post| onement of the Normal Illinois debate for one year, only one team was finally chosen to represent this school—the team representing us against Milwaukee. The preliminary oratorical contest arranged each year for the purpose of selecting the school orator for the inter-Normal contest was held during the third quarter. The six contestants did very creditable work. It is in these annual competitive contests that we students should he most interested. Any one may enter the contest and upon completing the oration and finishing the rehearsals will find that even if first honors are not won. much valuable training and experience have been acquired. These contests not only afford training to the contestants, but stir up enthusiasm and awaken school loyalty. The Stevens Point trip and the Milwaukee trip were the most important events of the school year given by the association. The enthusiasm aroused on these occasions; the inducements offered song and yell writers; the perfect transportation arrangements; the victory at Milwaukee, all contributed to make these trips ever memorable.

The number of students who were to accompany our orator grew daily until on Thursday, March 16, it was decided to charter a special train. Our train for the contest left early the next morning. Arriving at Stevens Point, after an enjoyable trip, we found that several delegations had arrived ahead of us. Old acquaintances were renewed and new friends made. A large, pleasantly furnished room was assigned to our delegation and was found a very convenient place for a quiet half-hour's rest. Because the day was rainy and dinner and supjx r were both served in the building, nearly all the delegations stayed indoors. The different school departments, a piano recital. and a basketball game furnished entertainment for the afternoon while some took advantage of the rest afforded by prettily arranged cozy corners in the conservatory on the third floor. After supper the delegations began to leave for the contest, which was held in the opera house. There the scene was one never to be forgotten. The auditorium was decorated with hunting and flags. The delegations, flushed and excited, were upon their feet yelling and waving their banners while the Plattcville band tried to make still more noise by playing their big drum and horns. It was a sight which showed intense feeling; strong school patriotism and good fellowship. These fifteen minutes preceding the opening of the program were alone well worth the bother and trouble of the trip. The program at the opera house was one of the best ever given at an inter-.Normal contest. Altho our representative failed to win first place, she won the highest honors in composition and ably demonstrated to all that Oshkosh Normal must always lx- reckoned with in contests of this kind. A reception at the Normal followed the contest. After light refreshments had been served and our hosts had been thanked for their cordial hospitality, the last good-byes were said, some knowing that never again as students would they attend another oratorical contest while others were laughingly saying that next year they would come up with an orator and surely get first place. These were the expressions as our train pulled out for Oshkosh, after a most enjoyable day. with a tired yet happy crowd of students. WE DON’T CARE. Tunc: Babes in Toyland.

Page eighty-eightThe Milwaukee Trip The long looked for and only inter-Normal debate of the year took place at Milwaukee on Friday, April 28. A delegation of thirty accompanied our team and was met at Milwaukee by a committee of students who were ready to show us about the city and offer any possible assistance. During the afternoon many visited the library and public buildings, while some others visited the class rooms at the Normal. As the hour for the debate drew near, Oshkosh alumni began to come in, on trains and street cars, to hear the debate, so that our delegation’s numbers were swelled and we were able to make a tolerably good representation of the Oshkosh Normal School. Preceding the debate there were the customary yells and songs. Milwaukee took great enjoyment in yelling with much enthusiasm— “Two-thirds Irish, one-third Dutch. Gee, but ain’t we awful much.” It was suggested that we might respond with “Two-thirds German, one-third Scotch, We’ll make that mixture one big botch.” Oshkosh, however, did not become enthusiastic until a few minutes before the debate. Then, at last the old battle cry, “Ole Olson,” echoed and re-echoed thru the hall. The debate was close and the arguments for both sides were presented with remarkable ability. When the decision, of two to one in favor of the negative, was announced, and our team had won, they were showered with the congratulations of both friends and opponents. A very pretty reception followed the debate, at which Oshkosh was assured that Milwaukee hoped to see us all another year. Our team deserves great credit for delivering one of the best prepared and most finished debates ever given by any Oshkosh Normal School debating team. They reaped victory from their hard study of the question, and their supporters were given the satisfaction of knowing that once more Oshkosh Normal had won a victory, hard fought and long to be remembered by those who made the trip to Milwaukee.

Davis Few students realize what the purpose of the Athletic Association is. Some think its only purpose is to sell membership tickets and ask for donations to pay its debts. The officers strive every year to provide suitable equipment for those who enter athletics. For instance, the football player needs not only his suit, but also head gear, nose guard, shinguards. and calked shoes. It takes money to buy these. Not only must equipment lx provided, but the services of the physician must lx paid also. To pay these expenses, as well as many others, taxes the ingenuity of our most expert financiers. especially when the student body does not lend its support. Last fall our boys played football in suits that compared very unfavorably with the suits of our opponents, and our boys had a right to feel ashamed. The management did what it could toward providing the necessary equipment. Professor Coolidge tried never to send a man into the game without a headgear and a nose guard, and he deserves great credit for his efforts. It may not lx generally known that the players themselves paid for some of these things rather than increase the debt of tlu association. The cause of this condition of affairs is not hard to find. The School does not support athletics. Some never see a football or basketball game. And when informed that tlu Athletic Association is in debt they say, “It's the same old story." never thinking they are just the ones who are to blame. The (dee Club did a very commendable thing this year. 1 laving a surplus in the treasury, the club gave us twenty-five dollars. We take this opportunity for again thanking the dee Club. The redeeming feature from the financial standpoint this year was the Candy Bazaar. Those girls who turned out so royally and provided the candy, earned the everlasting gratitude of the association. Everybody turned out. even those who never benight a ticket to a game. It is hoped that something similar to the bazaar will lx given each year. The athletic side of school cannot lx neglected and deserves the support of every student. Nothing shows the spirit of a school better than the support given its representatives in any contest, whether in athletics, oratory, or debate. Let us show our ability to support athletics as well as any school by giving our teams an unprecedented support next year. Page ninety-sixFootball Team The football team of 1904 was a credit to Oshkosh Normal. Beginning the season with green material, having but four old players, the hearty co-operation of squad, coach, and management, carried the eleven steadily upward thruout the season, until on the last day came the game that recalled former years to graduates and residents. The preliminary games with Kaukauna, Fond du I-ac, Northwestern of Watertown, and I awrcnce were discouraging. Inn three victories from sister Normals revived the team’s supjxirters. It is doubtful whether or not another university game will ever lx played. The present board of control docs not favor a reiK tition of the Evanston experience. The practice with Wayland and the royal fight with the men from Milwaukee on November 19 ended the season in a satisfactory manner. The team itself was well balanced. Centers and guards were at most times impregnable. At tackles Normal was excellent. Both ends were well defended. ‘‘Battle-Ax” at left doing some sensational work. For the back field there were enough men to keen the ball rolling all fall. Quarters were consistent and dc|X‘ndable. and runs from that position made repeated gains. The halves, two old men and two new, were strong lx th on offensive and defensive, while on bucking and short defense the fullback was seldom wanting. The schedule was difficult—they generally are. but certain features of this one were unavoidable. The development of an inexperienced squad into a compact, self-reliant football machine is no child’s play. The efforts of all concerned to do the old school credit arc therefore to be doubly commended. The spirit of dogged |x rseverancc won for us the Wisconsin State Normal championship. The team was a most loyal band of Normal men—-one and all. we gladly do them honor. The second team, or “Reserves,” as they preferred Ixing called, kept up faithful practice against the regulars and played out a creditable schedule with nearby high scliool aggregations. Much new material was discovered among them for the 1905 regulars. 'I'he first team owed no small part of its glory to their sacrifices, and the scrubs of next fall cannot lose by following the example set by this persistent little squad.

N. S., To whom is due a season’s success. “Gridiron laurels,” you’ll understand Were won last fall by our Normal band, A band of strong and stalwart men Whose numbers equaled four and ten. To give up pastries they were willing, And spent their time in earnest drilling. For practice makes the football man As only earnest practice can. Day after day, week in and week out, When four o’clock came they’d hurry about To don their suits and football gear. And make for the spacious campus near. And there they’d put in an hour or so Of the very best play that each could show. And soon those Normal football boys. Were spoken of as “Normal joys,” For every foe against them drawn. They resolved to crush by wit or brawn. i Their valiant captain, Donald Black, Who played on the team as a full back, Seemed a human ram behind the line That smashed the center every time. And the half-backs Davis ami Velte, too. Did the very best that any could do, For every one knew that “Dewey,” could run. And to see him “leg it,” was the greatest fun. 3 And Jerry Phelan would enter the race As if life de|K mled upon his pace. 4 While Velte, e’en in the midst of the fight. Took time to do things up just right. Page one hundred one5 Then Rees, the quarter-back little and low, Like zig-zag lightning he would go. Always keeping close to the ground. And gaining the goal before he was downed. 6 Should a high fly sail near our line. Milton would get it every time, And clasping it to his sturdy breast Against the surging tide he pressed. 7 The center was held by Frawley bold. And like Stonewall Jackson of old They’d surge against him all in vain. For Lehmann and Mathews were in his train 8 And Lelunarn "little but t) my.' Wa s not so easily slipt by. 8 9 While Mathews tall, and strong, and light. Was like a lion in the tight. to Should Abel stand in the center throng. No foe could move them, however strong. For these men formed a center wall That seemed to stand for good and all. L Page one hundred two11 And woe to the foe who had the ball, I-'or Leonard 10 vans, tho not very tall, Was broad and brawny and very quick too. And 'twas hard to tell what he wouldn't do. 12 Or Leister, that man of wondrous strength. Who'd go thru a line of any length. Should he. with his keen and eagle eye The man with the ball perchance to spy. • 3 13 And the enemy’s interference line Was smashed by “Battle-Ax." every time, With a hop and a skip and a loud halloo. He’d make a dive and go right thru. •4 14 While Joyce, who played on the other end. Every art to the game did lend. Together they’d batter down all resistance. And wipe the enemy out of existence. 15 And lastly, stands the name of him. Who was with the l oys thru thick and thin. For Coolidge, the coach, was always on hand On campus or gridiron, or in the grand-stand. Always ready to advise or instruct, Or encourage the boys against hard luck. And to his endeavors and interest, too. Our team’s success is largely due. 16 Then cheer on cheer, for our football band. Cheer on cheer, for our coach so grand. And three loud cheers for the maiden fair. Who waved our banner high in air. 15 Page one hundred threeBASKETBALL TEAM SCHWALM, guard. HENSFX, center. KEEFE (forward) captain PHELAN, forward.

With three of the last year's team back in school and with two other superior men to fill the vacancies. everybody looked forward to a winning team. Active practice was begun as soon as the football season was over and a large number of men responded to the call for recruits. Much competition was engaged in for places upon the team and in that way new men were developed. The student body showed an active interest in the team by coming out and watching the practice. Such spirit was appreciated by the members of the team and they worked with all the energy at their command. Before the season opened the management had prepared an excellent schedule and the sale of season tickets was unusually large. The first games were played away from home on strange lloors and altho the team met defeat in the opening games, their aggressive spirit never changed. A series of victories followed the first defeats, among them double victories over the Stevens Point Normal team and the strong Y. M. C. A. team of this city. These victories did much to arouse the spirit of the school and loyal support followed. Thru a misunderstanding the team was denied the privilege of meeting either Lawrence or Ripon Colleges upon the home floor and as a result our team had no chance to redeem the defeats which those two teams administered earlier in the season. Every member of the team played a star game but individual playing was sacrificed for team work as that is what counts in a game. Part of the time after school, each afternoon was allowed the girls, who engaged in the game in large numbers. Great rivalry existed among the different class teams and a series of class championship games were planned. I'.very afternoon from four until four forty-five the athletic young women of the different classes struggled for a place upon their respective class teams. I'ner the supervision of Miss Shepardson the teams were finally chosen and the dates set for the championship games. As was planned the Seniors played the Juniors and the Sophomores the Freshmen. both games occurring upon the same night. Both games were exciting, the Sophomores and Seniors demonstrating their superiority. The championship then lay between the Seniors and Sophomores, who battled for supremacy some time later. The Seniors went down to an honorable defeat at the hands of their younger opponents, tints giving the Sophomores the undisputed title to the championship. These inter-class games Ik tween the young women are a fine thing and present an opportunity for training and exercise that none can afford to miss.

Centers and guards were uniform in strength and speed, and succeeded in giving the forwards ample opportunity for rapid scoring, which the latter improved to good advantage in every game played. ’ £ • one hundred sixPage one hundred seven TRACK TEAM KEEFE MAJERUS I)A AXE HALSEY FRAWLEY ABEL Macdonald JONES DUFFY COOLIDGE BLACK WENDLANDT McDOUGAL DOHERTYTrack Athletics Track athletics began to lx- discussed as soon as the basketball season was over, and considerable enthusiasm was aroused among the students. Track work is a form of athletics in which a large number can participate, and in which professional skill is not needed in order for one to become proficient. There is an opportunity for each one to show what he can do individually, and to develop himself in those things which he can do best. Accordingly when a date was set upon which the different classes would strive to win the class championship banner a large number of candidates appeared, lie fore the snow had left the ground the most eager aspirants for honors began practicing in the gymnasium under the direction of Coach Coolidge. The intense feeling of rivalry which existed between the different classes animated a larger number to get out. When weather conditions permitted a large squad were in active practice upon the campus every afternoon. The class meet was post| oned, but meets with Lawrence, Ripon, and the Normal Schools represented in the Inter-State Normal ()ratorical League were arranged for. The meet with 1-awrence occurred May 9 and showed us our strong and weak |x ints. Our team proved very strong in the track events but comparatively weak in the field events. Great hopes were entertained that with the aid of representatives »»f the other Normal Schools in the state, W isconsin would lx- aide to win the inter-state meet at Milwaukee May 12. Iowa, however, sent an unusually strong team and carried off first honors, Wisconsin finishing second. The lx st showing was made at l ijx»n. )ur team won first place in nearly every event for which the regular men were entered. The only thing that prevented our winning the meet was the absence of our long distance runner. The two best sprinters will graduate this year. The next year's track team will contain some of this year's best men, and the prospects fora good team then are even better than they were this season. Page one hundred eightLITERATURE Page one hundred ninePage otic hundred ten The Normal Advance In October. 1897. l ,c students published their first issue of the Normal Advance. They chose for their editor-in-chief a man thorolv imbued with the mission of the work he was to perform, for he wrote. "We must strive to paint school life in its truest and best colors. Yea. we must do more: we must furnish the colors.” If the Normal Advance of today is in aught a better paper than it was in the days of faculty management, it is because its editors have appreciated the full significance of this mission and have endeavored to realize it more and more in each succeeding isstte. “We must paint school life in its truest and best colors.” School life? Have you a conception of what is meant by school life? Think of our school as an individual, having actual living existence in the world of the real. The record of such a life might be a diary, it might Ik a history; but it were letter called a story. To tell such a story of the life of our school and to “paint it in its truest and best colors” is the mission of the Normal Advance. This life is a varied complex life. Ofttimes it takes the vision of a seer to read its notes aright, the genius of a master to strike on chords that l cat responsively. “We must d more, we must furnish the colors." Is it possible for a school paper to color the life of the school, to determine its actions, failings and thoughts? This should Ik the higher aim of its editors. Some concede to the press of our land a major influence in the growth of public opinion. A Normal Advance staff, by becoming thorolv imbued with the true school spirit and with the idea! toward which the school must strive in order to fulfill its mission in the land, is in a position to mould the character of the student body and sway its sentiments. The first duty of the Advance is to the school, for it Ixdongs to the school. There arc other aims more worthy than the editing of an excellent magazine. The faculty, no doubt, could edit such a paper. The Advance must Ik of the school and must represent the ideas and the work of the school. The more it comes from the mind and heart of the student the letter school paper will it lx .—it matters not whether it is a better magazine or educational review. The editorial staff of 1904-5 have appreciated the importance of their task. The conviction of it has grown upon them month by month. They have tried to voice the Opinion of the school. Yet, reason and judgment have ever gone before, deciding as to the things which would lead to better conditions. The Advance is on a firm financial basis. More monev by fifteen per cent has been expended in its publication than in any previous year. The extra fine quality of its printing has been a delight to its readers. Tn these closing days of the year one staff is regretfully laving aside the burden it has borne for a time, and another staff is about to step beneath the yoke. May they enjoy their work in as full a measure as the staff of 1904-5. Page one hundred elevenF Page one hundred twelve Browning Club.The Browning Club Secretary......................Martha G. Jones Secretary-Treasurer ...........Kate L. Palmer The Browning Club is recognized as one of the culture clubs of the school. Tho the membership is small—limited to fifteen—there is no organization in which membership is more eagerly sought. I-'or the first time in its history the Browning Club is composed entirely of girls. The club meets bi-weekly at the home of Miss Peake under whose direction the members are led to appreciate the master. Browning. 'File first work of the Club this year was the general poems, and the later work has been the drama. "King Victor and King Charles" is the latest study of the Club. While these dramas have been enjoyed by all. it seems that the shorter |XK ms have Ixren a greater source of inspiration and enjov-incut than the dramas. The purpose of the Club is to furnish ».n hour's rest from routine work bv directing the mind into new channels of thought. The ideals gained from our poet-friend are those of loving and higher living. Wc agree with Browning in saying. "The mind’s height may Ik measured by the shadow that it casts." Page one hundred thirteenAu Ciittor’a Jfltijht. While casting about for some fancies To shine on the Qciver page, I went to the home of the Muses The poet's steed to engage. "Is Pegasus busy just now?” I asked in a beseeching way. "I should like him to give me a lift. I'll return him at close of the day.” They brought him. jumping and prancing. Mis wings were all tumbled and rough; And I judged from the arch of his neck, That I should have trouble enough. So I tried to soothe him by talking, "Dear Peggy, be docile and good. It is not very much I am asking. No more than I really should.” “You need not soar very high. For I really have little to say— Just some old jokes to remodel In a new and original way.” "About those old. dignified Seniors, And the Soph’morc’s presumptuous crew. And then, too, those gay, jolly Juniors With nothing whatever to do." “And then, for the Freshman, just rhyme me In a neat little couplet or two. Something about babies and rattles As the rest of these Annuals do." "This is all that I ask of you, Peggy. Just to help with these elasses. four. They are jokes that are truly worn threadbare. If they’ll only last one season more.” So saying. I leaped to the saddle. When straight he arose in his wrath. And upward he went like a rocket In an almost miraculous path. My head—it seemed almost bursting. In my fright. I cried out aloud When he reared himself up on sheer ether And pawed at the edge of a cloud. And when terra firma received me, The very first word that I spoke Was. "These flights to you may be funny. But riding this steed is no joke.” Page one hundred fourteenSchool Friendships A group of graduates who had returned to Oshkosh to spend their vacation, were asked one day: “What do you consider the most valuable result of your two years spent at the Normal ?” The almost unanimous reply was: “The friends we made." To one who has never attended an institution such as this, or even to those now going to school, this seems scarcely possible. In the busy routine of every day we do not realize how strong a factor in our pleasure is the spirit of comradeship which prevails in our school. But compare the first day of our school day with the last and we shall value our friends at their true worth. Go back with me for a moment to that dreary Tuesday morning when we arrived in Oshkosh. Weary and homesick, we stepped from the cars, strangers in a strange city. We wondered where we should go or what we should do. Just as we were beginning to wish we had never come a young man wearing the badge of the V. M. C. A. came forward. In reply to our questions he told us where we could find rooms and boarding places. With his assistance we were soon provided with a home, during the time we remained in Oshkosh. When school opened the next morning we had already lost the feeling of strangeness and had met several who were to laconic close friends during the year. The time went on and we singled out from this circle of acquaintances two or three with whom we shared all our joys and sorrows. We realized then the truth of Cicero’s words, written so many years ago: “Friendship improves happiness and abates misery by doubling our joy and dividing our grief.” The fact that we were many of us far from home drew us more closely together. As the days went on and we became more and more under the influence of the spirit of co-operation which pervades our Normal, our lives grew broader and fuller. ()ur interests came to be the interests of the school, and no longer seeking for individual honor we threw our hearts and strength into the advancement of our school. Now. all t x soon, the last day has come. Reluctantly we bid farewell to those who have lx en our associates. Glad tho we are to enter upon the work for which we have been preparing, yet it is with a feeling of sadness we climb the stairs of the Normal for the last time. We feel that no matter how far we may travel, our hearts will always remain true to those who were with us in the old days. We say with Irving: “Sweet is the memory of distant friends. Like the mellow rays of the declining sun it falls tenderly yet sadly on the heart.” Page one hundred fifteenScurries nf a Sarijrlnr Slowly fades from ihe west the golden glory of sunset; Softly the lingering shadows of evening gather about him. Bringing, from out the dim past, forms that live only in memory,— Figures that softly come and go in the flickering firelight. Tiptoeing soft thru the gloom a dainty blossom of childhood Steals to his side, and fixes the light of her blue eyes upon him. Gently he stoop- to caress the ringlets of gold on her forehead,— But with the touch she has vanished, the dream of "first love” has departed. Brighter burning, the lire fills the room with a glow as of noonday; A being as airy and gay as a butterfly flits thru the doorway. Joyous, and glad and free, as “sweet sixteen” will be ever. I-aughing, she slowly approaches, fades, and is lost in the darkness. Now as his thoughts pass on to the later schooldays at Normal Comes a vision of one with an armful of plans and of notebooks. One who takes mental arithmetic, theory, spelling, and practice; Slow she advances to meet him. and then all! she too has vanished! Softly the zephyrs of summer float thru the dusk of the evening; Sweetly falls on his ear a melody distant and dreamy; And. as if bonic on the wings of the beautiful fairy-like music. Floats thru the doorway a vision light as the airiest fancy. Noiselessly, softly she glides, advancing, yet ever retreating. Till with one last fond look she fades away in the gloaming. And with a si li of regret he turns once more to the doorway. Faintly lie hears in the distance the murmur of surf at the seashore; Mashing and bright the sun from the glimmering waters reflected. And with their wing-like sails the yachts seem impatiently fluttering. Waiting for—ah. here she comes!—but the yachting girl. too. has departed! There in her place is the golf girl, carrying the balls and the golf clubs. Beckoning him to the links.— But the vision fades as he gazes. The scene is changed; the snowflakes fall thick and fast in the twilight; Merrily jingle the bells on the icy air of December, And. closely mufllcd in furs, with check all aglow and eyes sparkling. Enters the winter girl.—and passes aw:«y like the others. Suddenly changes the sound of the sleigh-bells to loveliest music, And to its rhythm the dancers flit to and fro in the ballroom; All are unnoticed save one,—she comes close to the dreamer. Gazes fondly upon him. and is whirled away in the two-step. Gone are the strains of music, and vanished the hall and the dancers. Now approaches a figure of womanly sweetness and beauty; There on her finger sparkles the diamond, the pledge of affection, And from the orange wreath the bridal veil falls over her shoulders. But the last faint embers that glowed in the fireplace arc fallen in ashes; Silent the sound of the bells and the beautiful fairylike music; Gone is the flash of the sun from the glimmering waters reflected; Vanished the forms that lived once again in the flickering firelight. Page one hundred sixteenYesterday, Today and Tomorrow CONG ago and far away. Over hill and hollow, Lies the green fields of our youth, Bobo-link and swallow. Real it was with dewy grass, And blossoms rich with showers. Oh! how passing wonderful. That boyhood world of ours. CHEN it passed, as all things must, With its charm and beauty; Passed to leave us face to face, With what men call duty. But the sunshine lingers still Over grass and flowers, Better far than boyhood years, 1 his Today of ours. O our days grow into days, Month and season speeding; But taking naught of joy or love. With each old years’ receding. Swift the vision fades away — The past, of guilt or sorrow — But leaving hope and valiant faith, Tor the new Tomorrow. w. c. hewi r r. Page otic hundred seventeenThe Autobiography of the Bulletin Board The five-thirty gong had warned all from the building and everything was quieting down for a good night’s rest, 'l'lie Bulletin Board, however, was uneasy and at last remarked to its neighbor, the Radiator, “I feel all cut up to-day, there must have been over fifty tacks jabbed into me.” The Radiator seemed to be feeling badly himself for he replied that considering the day he had been uncomfortably warm; had sputtered most of the time ; and therefore did not wish to talk. A long silence ensued, broken at last by an announcement front the Bulletin Board: "Have you observed how I am noticed? The first thing this morning a girl vigorously attacked me and hung up a notice, saying, 1 have had no time for anything this week. I’ve lost my watch.’” "Girls are careless,” broke in the Radiator, "I heard one say the other day she had lost a lxnv. I was wondering who he was when she said that it was a red one. but that she preferred Black. "Speaking of beaus," exclaimed the Bulletin Board, there is that fellow they call ‘Sliver’ who is always w:th the same girl. 1 think he must have been in jail at some time for he is always saying ‘pardon me.’ But there is one fellow that the girls have all lately come to like. Kvcn those that don’t admire him give him to understand that they ought to. W hat do they mean?” "That is easy." the Radiator answered, "he has a new W inton." "But did you notice the other day when that tall, slim, athlete came up to you and read the rhetorical programs? He turned pale when he saw that he was to declaim. He had stage fright." "I shouldn't think a man that can high-jump like he can would Ik flurried over a thing like that." replied the Bulletin Board, "but 1 understand he is not jumping as well this year." “That’s because last year was leap year." broke in the Radiator, "but speaking of rhetoricals. did you hear what one of the girls said about the declamation on .imcricanism given by our small but great debater?" “Yes," replied the Bulletin Board, “but only part, we always lose the best of the conversation. Did you notice me the other day ? A young man stepped up and hung a collar ami neck-tie on me. I don’t object to holding a glove, provided there’s something in it. but I can’t stand a collar and tie. Now I expect, that after one of those football games, they will tack up a scarred and battered player who can only Ik identified by a half or quarterback." “That's a terrible game." agreed the Radiator. "it always seemed to Ik named wrong. They use a pig skin and have rooters on tin side lines." "The other day." said the Bulletin Board, “two Senior girls came up and posted a notice on me until I actually felt stuck up." "I observed it." cut in the Radiator, "you ought to have been nailed." "'l'lie girls said." went on the Bulletin Board, ignoring the remark. "I wonder if the joke is on us? Has she missed her waists?’ They had found two shirt waists and wanted to return them. They wasted their time on the notice for I don’t think the loser ever got her property. I felt sorry, for clothes are so important to girls. ' “That." replied the radiator, “is nothing. “The other day one of those athletes was standing near me engaged in a heated discussion when a girl came and wanted to sell him a ticket. By the way he leaned against me she must have made him tired. He Page one hundred eighteendidn’t lean long. Soon he jum] ed and remarked among other things that I was rattier ‘warm.’ I dislike slang from these fresh young men. Nevertheless, I was sorry for him, for the girl had no sooner left than he pulled out seven tickets like the one purchased and—an empty pocketbook.’’ "It is bad to lx so weak that one must always say yes.” smiled the bulletin Hoard. "I understand that the postmistress, taking pity on some of the young men here, writes letters so that she can always say yes when asked for mail. The other day a small, charming Senior girl glided up to me—she didn’t seem to know how to walk—and pushed tacks into me so hard that 1 thought there was something the matter, and there was. She was anxiously awaiting a chance to say ‘yes.’ She was saying to a friend who chanced to come up. 'I just think it's terrible, here it is nearly five o’clock and he hasn’t asked me to the concert yet. I le is so slow. I wish 1 were a man. I wouldn't keep a girl in such anxiety.’ A quiet, good looking young man came up then and her friend discreetly left. The young man immediately came to the point and asked the girl to the concert. Imagine my surprise and amazement to hear her refuse, saying that she had a headache and didn't believe she could go.” “That must have been one of those white lies that people claim are justifiable.” replied the Radiator, “for two girls were talking alxnit a theater they had attended the other night and one of them said. ’It is better to lie a little Than to Ik unhappy much,’ “Speaking of poetry, did you see what those poetical young Freshmen posted on me." said the Bulletin Board. "It was this— 'Girls they say are ’fraid of mice And many other things not nice; It seems to me to be unfair, That girls should wear “rats" in their hair.' “That girls should wear ‘rats’ in their hair ‘yes.’ " the Radiator warmly replied. “It’s bad, but do you remember the piece of |xx tic art put up by one of our coming Miltons. Something like this— 1 loved a maiden, Oh, so fair. She was the pink of perfection; But my love took flight on wings of air. For I learned her’s was a “drug store” complexion.’ "Well. I like the thought in the last poem much lxtter than that in the first. Senior poets should lx better tho. But do you remember the—Oh—there goes the old bell again. If you had only talked to me at first we could have said much more. Good morning until to-night.” Page one hundred nineteenThe Campus The campus! What a host of remembrances those words call up. Altho they suggest widely different thoughts to different individuals, yet to every one who has |»een connected with the school, memories of some kind must be suggested. "Why, to me,” said one, "those words recall incidents scattered thruout my whole school life. How well I remember the day when 1 first entered the Normal. The campus seemed an immense sizt to me then for I was only a second primary youngster, and as I ran about it getting my bearing, it seemed as big as the farm from which I had lately come. The beautiful iron fountain incessantly sending up its streams of water, excited especial wonder and admiration. I often found myself standing where 1 could touch the sparkling spray, wondering where that flowing stream could conic from. The innumerable birds and squirrels which make their homes in the trees all helped to make the campus a place of delight and beauty. "The back campus, tho not so beautiful, was equally interesting. It typified the out of door athletic life of the school. The space now occupied by the new addition, formed an excellent tennis court, and faculty and students alike enjoyed the privileges afforded by it. Those who did not care for tennis turned their attention to other forms of athletics, and it was the usual sight in the spring to see twenty or thirty candidates for the track team, clad in the usual garb, practicing upon the rear campus. In the fall, football held sway and the few weeds and grass that had sprung up during the summer were soon worn off under the feet of the burly football men.” "Whenever I hear the word ‘campus,’” said another. “I always think of the first oratorical celebration 1 ever saw. I, too. was in the second primary, which at that time was in the basement, just at the left of the south entrance. We were all busily engaged in some kind of work when the music of a band attracted our attention. There is nothing so attractive to children as a brass band, and instinctively we craned our necks to-look out of the windows. The sounds came nearer and nearer, mingling with school yells and cheers. The buzz of excitement spread and work in the second primary became almost impossible. The teacher finally excused ns and we tumbled over ourselves to get out. Then we saw a long line of yelling, shouting students, headed by the Arions and drawing in their midst a gaily decked carriage in which was seated a young man who looked both tired and happy. It was an exciting time for me as 1 had never seen anything of the kind before. I learned that the young man had won the inter-state oratorical contest and that the students had met him at the train and had drawn him to the school to hold a celebration. Since then I have seen many celebrations, but none to compare with this one.” If the campus could only talk it would tell many things not now known to all. but we shall have to be content with memory’s pictures—and these are innumerable, some sad, some merry. Many remember with what tear-dimmed eyes they first saw the campus and cared nothing for its beauty, for their thoughts and hearts were with those at home. Once a funeral train wound its sad way down past the fountain. But- for the most part the memories of the campus are happy ones. Celebrations, receptions, commencement exercises, fetes and trials of strength and skill upon the track, the diamond, and the gridiron come to our remembrance. Dear old campus, to me your lawns are ever green, your trees, ever leafy. I-ong may you remain a place of beauty, a place with which memories of friendship and happy student days are ever associated. Page one hundred twentyThe Doves To describe the Oshkosh Normal School, and leave out the doves, would be like picturing Athens without her owls or Constantinople without her dogs. 'Hie time when there were no doves connected with the Normal is so far back that no one in this day and generation remembers it. The doves themselves seem to feel their right of being counted a part of the institution. They are a lx ard of supervisors, who pass silent, and we may believe, lenient criticism, on the proceedings inside the building. The colony divides into pairs for inspection of the rooms looking out upon the court. One of these pairs was observed peering over the edge of a roof and listening to the singing of the children. After a few moments they straightened up. gave some very decided shakes of their pretty heads, and then flew away, probably to listen to the sweet melody of the song sparrow. Nor do they confine their interest to the realm of music. They patrol the window sill of the Drawing room, and to all appearances compare the works of art found therein with those of nature. At the windows of the Auditorium they listen with delight to the compliments bestowed uj)on them in “O that I had the wings of a dove.” Hut they seem to enjoy themselves most of all listening to the rhyming Juniors in the Rhetoric room, who sit with dark and stormy-looking brows trying to find a word to rhyme with “sing.” Then a flutter at the window makes them think of “wing.” When they come to "love” they remember the “dove,” and when about to abandon "woo” they hear a soft "coo-coo.” After such service, is it any wonder that the Juniors wish to honor these birds. Hut the prettiest sight of all is when our Hilda feeds the doves. No matter tho the ground Ik covered with snow, the birds know that at the window of the Literature room, they will find food and a welcome. Long live the doves! May they find no reason for taking their flight. To Ellen F. P. Peake Our Teacher and our Friend, Whom love of Beauty lifts To realms of radiant Truth And fills with thoughts Divine Which, breathing forth each day From lip and life example, Inspire us and show the way To higher thoughts and worthier deeds. Page otic Iiii ml red hventy-oneThe Vision of a Junior In a wilderness of doubt, beset by strange fears and forebodings, was 1 lost, and knew not whence to seek for comfort. Anil in that hour of dark despair there came a sound as of wings above me and a spirit voice spake in mine ear, "Grieve not, weary one, there is peace before thee, come.'' Then there were strange rumblings as of all earth's winds and 1 was no longer of this place, but moved among the clouds. And ever the spirit tloated before. To mine eyes it was not given to sec the realms thru which we passed and only the soft cold touch of the clouds made impress upon me. Whether Heaven's gate we passed 1 know not, but only that in time we no longer made straight thru the thin clouds but descended suddenly, swiftly, into light such as never before was known. Aloft in that wonderful light one moment we paused and the spirit directed my gaze downward. Then descending 1 looked and beheld what was to me a strange and shining country. Such fragrance tloated up from that flower-covered land and so steeped my senses that 1 would fain have hovered there ever but the spirit drew me down. It is not given to me to tell of all the wondrous sights and sounds that so entranced my soul as 1 stood at last on the cool green mosses of the river bank and cast my gaze upon that land. Eternal morning shone on all and in the radiance of that light such flowers and trees and grasses appeared as in dreams are only seen. "Ah," tliought 1, "here might 1 find comfort, ami toil no more; but none are in this place. Perchance it is sought for and not found.” Musing thus 1 stood and then my guide: "They come, hark !" A sweet faint melody floated up along the stream. Nearer and nearer it came, mingled now with the quick light splash of water. In wonder 1 turned me to my guide, but he in rapture bade me look, and there swiftly thru the waters glided a great white ship. Nearer it came and I beheld upon its deck a band of white-robed spirits and ever as the ship sailed on their voices rose in strange sweet song. And there was one among them, at the stern he sat, of stature short and of serious mien who looked neither to right nor left but guided that white craft with firm and faithful hand, and round about his noble head liovered a circlet of opal tinted light. "Surely," thought I, "this one have 1 seen liefore," and—I to myself shaking—"yes, it is he. that one whom on earth they called Rupp. For about the prow of that great ship was set in letters dipped in gold "Seniors 1905.” Still nearer they came and ever and anon there rose a voice above them all, dissenting, and again there flashed ujxm me the memory of one whose voice was ever heard. Then as the vessel sailed many forms known on earth I saw. One grave and silent stood apart as tho he feign would bill the others cease and sail in quiet. Another with something ever wrote and wrote and so forgot to sing. 13y the prow a company stood of joyous spirits whose voices rose in song and shout high above the chorus. These had I heard before. Close by was one 1 knew. Slender and grave was she and fairly upon her head rested the laurel crown. Near unto this laurel-crowned one stood another known to me by the floating of her tresses in the breeze, and last was one who by the never ending writhings of her neck knew I. More there were, but in the shadow of the test they stood and I could name them not. When the ship at last stood still, close ujxjn the flowery shore, such a shout of exultation rose from all that spirit throng that the waters heaved in their bed and the very land trembled with the sound. The promised land long yearned for was at hand. And the spirit said to me, “Thou hast seen, have faith, for thou, also, is this joy one day. Therefore toil willingly, faithfully, knowing the joy of the end." Then darkness came upon me and 1 knew no more.

Had worked both hard and long, Until their members, every one, Were, doubtless, very strong. And then to prove their strength and skill To the students one and all. They challenged thus the Junior team To a game of basketball: The challenge falls in Normal halls. On little Juniors young in glory, Their captain quakes and their forward shakes As the mild Seniors shout the story. Blow, bugle: blow, set the wild echoes flying, Blow, bugle; answer Juniors, dying, dying, dying. O hark. O hear! from far and near. On March the third at basketball. The Seniors sweet, will the Juniors meet. While the horns of victory loudly call. Blow, let us hear the saucy girls replying, Blow, bugle: answer Juniors, dying, dying, dying. O see them die as on we fly, They faint—the forward, guard and center. Our Seniors roll from goal to goal. And win. forever and forever. Blow, bugle, blow, set the old Gym. flying. And answer. Juniors, answer, dying, dying, dying. And when this Tennysonian hit, Was read before the school Hie members of the Junior team Rememl ered then the ruL.

The day arrived, the game was called. And each side played to win. While loyal classmates with their cheers. Woke the echoes of the gym. But the teams were matched so equally, And each one played so well. That how the game would end at last. Was very hard to tell. But when the whistle sounded clear. And time was called, .'lias! The score was written six to four. In favor of the Senior class. Page one hundred twenty-fiveBefore and After Along about All Fool's Day an epidemic of applying for schools sets in at the Normal with great severity. Many students succumb. Money for stamps flows like water at the stationer’s. They come as “doves to her windows." The chief end of man these days is to create good citizens, the aspirant is avowedly consumed by this unsalable ambition,—it is as “marrow to his bones." But paramount, tho deeply buried from all save one skilled in applicant law. is the insidious passion for ducats. “Mitch your wagon to a star" is his maxim: his mind gravitates toward the best-salaried |x sition available. I le at once recognizes a strong affinity between himself and this position. As the days go by. interest intensifies. The President resolves himself into a Bureau of Information. Feverish aspirants beset him behind and before. If possible, Mr. Briggs and Miss McFaddcn become more popular than ever, arc lionized so they scarcely take time for refreshment. How careful the obstreperous wights of Normal fame are now to walk softly up the front stair-case! How the discursive Americans seek to repress their desires to talk! How they strive to ingratiate themselves with the dignitaries! How obsequious to Critic Teachers’ suggestive look! What blandil oquence flows augmented from their lips! These are but the symptoms by which the disease declares itself. The departments of Rhetoric. Physics, and Mathematics are engulfed by the heavy ground swell that sets in for letters of recommendation. Fach succumbs to the resistless current. Fach prays for an amanuensis. Who could forecast that in a few months these desperately-coveted documents will be souvenirs? Many and varied are the exjK ricnces of these last days. Students eliminate Morning exercises, a delayed application must get in before the mail leaves. To assuage their desperation the rules of the Post Office arc sus| endcd. Important type-written letters are surreptitiously slipped thru the kindly liars. To others, “hojx deferred mak-cth the heart sick.’’ In class the applicants are in a semi-comatose state. Who can blame them? Who does not thrill when the telephone rings? Who does not cudgel his brain to know which will lx most worth drawing, the breath of life or his salary where he applied? Who in fancy is not instructor in psalmody? Who of visionary propensity plays not the role of chief at village pw-wows? His hurrying imagination exalts him to the “chief seat in the synagogue.” Now he is a household divinity at whose shrine teeming dozens of village devotees pay homage. He gloats deliciously over fabulously increased monthly stipend. He exults at the series of pictures. In fancy his ambulations evince the urbanity of celebrity; his inimitable eloquence proclaims him one of the Illuminati. He sees the city swayed by Normal innovation. Bewitched bv delusive fancy, “beguiled out of himself.” enamoured of hope, the acme of human happiness is attained. Luckless youth! Had he long-distance auditories, he could hear the crash of Page one hundred twenty-sixhis ill-starred aerial architecture, he could distinguish wretched strains of his own Mis-ereri. There is a day-dream that sccincth plausible unto a scliool applicant, but the reality is grim disappointment. l-'ears creep in. gnawing at the very tap-root of his j cacc of mind.

If the days are troublous, the nights are hideous. In sleep the addled brain brings forth distorted vision. Out of the chaos of day evolves nocturnal pandemonium. Shades of Normal! They gather round his bed threatening to alienate reason, and refuse to Ik dispersed. But what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole realm of sleep and lose his position? Frightful is the delirium from which he awakes to consciousness and expectancy. With life is hope: he may still awake in the likeness of a City Superintendent. and Ik satisfied. Practice these last weeks preys visibly upon the student face. What could conduce to mental dethronement like menacing dreams of failure in this last quarter of practice? lie feels that he must teach his classes with all diligence, for out of this teaching are the issues of next year. Visiting superintendents are a new cause for distraction. Woe to him should he be weighed and found wanting. About the last of June, he appreciably understands the disillusionments of youth set forth in Science of Kducation. He aimed so high, he lit so low. He asked for bread, a stone was given. 11c posed as a fixed star in high school splendor, others saw him a satellite depending for its effulgence on more transcendant luminaries. But joys of planning eclipse all disappointment. To the excruciating torture of the past few weeks, any certain fate is preferable. The adamantine |M rtals have fallen ajar, he has entered. Kestatic bliss, genuine heaven he enjoys. Tho his salary is liliputian, he has inured himself to ’“plain living and high thinking” he has learned to be “content with small means.” Sufficeth it that he is safely located. Without he hears wailing and gnashing of teeth. Unscathed is he by the cataclysms of Spelling and Practice, they are but shadows to the inferno from which he has emanated. Deplorable the future of contemporaries less fortunate than himself. lamentable the | ortion of those still involved in doubt, for tho many are called, but few are chosen. Time is the only lenitive for these “pin-pricks of destiny.” As the indefatigable student passes thru the cycles and aeons of experience, these infinitesimal reverses of fate sink into oblivion.

Humorous Editor 1905. Oshkosh. Feb. 12-13-14, 1905. To the Humoress of 05: As one who once during the century that has passed held the position of alleged humorous editor of the Normal Quiver. I naturally take an interest in the plan of the staff of the Quiver of 1905 of exhuming the remains of their prehistoric predecessors, in view of forming a museum of fossil foolishness. The present editors certainly have the sympathy of the shades of the departed. To be humorous editor of the Quiver is a serious matter. All mebers of the school who have a dig. a roast or a josh to get off on some fellow student, will reduce it to writing and file it with the humorous editor, who will as in duty bound collect all these poisoned darts and put them into his Quiver. Now, we who have l een there know that said editor is entirely disinterested and innocent, hut we likewise know that when these shots go home, there will fall upon his devoted head the accumulated wrath of the joshed. If you be wise as well as witty, oh. humorous editor, you will leave town for the sake of your health before the first edition of the Quiver reaches the public. Fossil specimen No. '98, of this collection of antiquities, altho unearthed within sight of the Normal's pinnacles and spires, has so long been disassociated with that institution that at present he bears no evidence of having belonged to the species that, during a previous geological era. roamed thru its spacious halls. Perhaps the other specimens will doubtless served their full term, got an honorable discharge, went forth and got after the young idea in the manner prescribed by the rules and regulations of the Oshkosh Pedagogical Construction Co., return frequently to become renormalized. To them the Normal will always be an asylum of refuge—if they don’t get committed to any other. Hut to one who, as was the case of fossil No. '98. escapes from the Normal with part of bis sentence unserved and never joins the ranks of pedagogy, a visit to the Normal is like unto a trip to the North Pole. The aforesaid fossil, however, in spite of his defunct condition, still has Normal reminiscences. He remembers, for instance, his attempt to introduce into the school a system of spelling that was phonetic and clastic, coupled with a style of penmanship that was unspeakable. But the faculty proved obdurate and unprogressive. They would sanction nothing that did not have the unqualified approval of the late Noah. I do not refer to our honorable ancestor of fish story fame, but to that learned gentleman for whom the fossil has the utmost respect, altho often differing on points of orthography. Noah Webster. There is still mirrored in the memory of the fossil a picture of an ultra-Mcg igcr gentleman standing near the door of the Ladies' Study and always seeming about to roll his discus down the main stairway. Page one hundred thirtyThen, too, there is a lurid recollection to use a figure of rhetoric, of that abnormal light "that never was on land or sea." And. oh. yes, we were always proceeding from the known to the unknown and never getting there. That endless procession of proceeded, docs it still go marching on over paths of concrete ta the abstract land of the unknown? Sincerely yours, Lester J. Atheark, Humorous ’98. P. S.—(Not for publication). Good luck to the Quiver of 1905. L. J. A. Wausau, Wis., Feb. 27, 1905. My Dear Miss Bovec: You. no doubt, have decided that I did not intend to respond to your invitation to contribute, but such, dear lady, is not the case I assure you. 1 have probed and tapped my vein of humor but if there ever was any, it must be extinct, for 1 probed and tapped in vain, till all at once I thought of the enclosed record of actual happenings anil I thought truth greater than fiction, so here it is. If it is not too late and you think it worth while, print it, if not distribute it in small doses among the faculty so they will have a new set of jokes ( ?) for next time.

(Which was interpreted to mean “shoes to the shoester.") “Well, what is it,"—to a hit of a maid who frantically waving her hand to attract attention).

One of the mothers was discussing the making of liver gravy when her little girl. Katherine. spoke up and said: "We sing about liver tea in our school." Her mother thinking that a strange subject for a children’s song, asked her to sing it and was amused to hear. “My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liver tea." etc. Page one hundred thirty-oneA Medley There was tumult in the Normal. On that ne’er forgotten day. When we filed forth from our classes Puffer’s message to obey. Wc were gathered in assembly, Not a soul would dare to speak— In that flutter of excitement. Not a shoe would dare to squeak. Then said the President, gazing Abroad on the terror-struck throng, “Wc will have two weeks Girismias vacation. It trust it will not prove too long." Then there was hurrying to and fro. And fainting girls, and signs of great delight; And checks all flushed that but an hour ago. Paled at the thought of lessons unprepared by night. "I would rather," then quoth Hewitt. ‘‘Have small-pox than furnace tend." In the laugh that promptly followed. All distress came to an end. Tell me not in accents mournful, Small-pox is a specter grim. For to us the words meant "Freedom!” Tho their content was so dim. Page one hundred thirty-twoSome Things to be Considered by Students Who Engage Rooms 1. Cost of room per hour; rebate for absence over Sunday; time for making each absence. 2. Calling: Who shall furnish the alarm clock and guarantee it to wake roomers ? I f it goes off Sunday morning, who shall l e called down ? 3. Equipment: If for self-boarding how many “spoons” are alii wed ? 4. Returning: If the roomer gets home lx-fore nine o’clock shall he Ik- locked out in order to secure a uniform time of exit and egress ? 5. Care of the room: If peanut shells and cracker crumbs get on the rug after a weekly sweep who cares? 6. Luxuries: When soap is used, by whom furnished? It furnished by the landlady, an agreement should Ik- made to have it harmonize with complexion and temperament of user: I’.lack, white, transparent, green, etc. 7.

A little girl arose and asked earnestly, "Aren't tlu-y having a tumult up-stairs now?" Junior Recipe for Honorable Mention Many have sought in varied ways the secret of this much prized confection, so pleasing to the auditory palate of the recipient—the morning after making. This is the only absolutely sure recipe: “To a small quantity of Delsorte, add a pinch of Bo-bibby-bib-bib-bo. Sift carefully with a "pint” or two of the flower of the Emersonian School of Eloquence. Add one cupful of midnight oil. Season with a teasjxxmful each of careful preparation, and chopped and dried gesticulation. Spice with originality to taste. Pour upon six pages of superfine essay paper, and bake with a moderate tire of genius." If the air of affectation be excluded. H. M. will not become stale.

Listen, oh Best-Beloved, to the tale of the Senior-who-conqucred-by-his-Bluff-dodge. Many years ago—it is a quintet of years which sings this ballad—A-little-boy-who-wore-knee-trousers-and-a-celluloid-collar came unto the Nonnal-which-is-by-Lake-Win-nehago. He carried in the lining of his McKinley-and-Roosevelt-cainpaign-cap, a diplo ina from the Little-Brick-School-house-by-the-Black-Swamp. The Swamp is drained now and the cattle chew their cuds where the frogs formerly discoursed orchestra music when he was a Barefoot Boy—and the mind of the boy is like unto the Swamp. It is not drained, but it has lx come cultivated and useful to him. The Boy-wlio-worc-knec-trousers-and-a-celluloid-colar displayed his diploma to the Man-with-black-hair-and-penetrating-eyes who sat at a desk and visited with all of the students. The boy thought the man’s jjosition a sinecure and decided that he would be President of a Normal School in four or five years. PART II. The Man-with-black-hair-and-penetrating-eyes looked at the boy’s diploma and told the Bov-in-knee-trousers that he must take an examination. The boy sat in a room with a number of others and lists of questions such as he had never before heard of were given to him. The room seemed close and the boy took off his coat—but the Man-with-black-hair said he must not leave it off. so he put it on again. There came a Man-built-like-Atlas, only he had once caught the globe on a branch of an apple tree and conceived the idea of keeping it thus suspended. This man asked queer questions, such as: "How long have you studied Geography?" “What text book did you study?” “What makes the wind blow?” To which the boy wrote: “I have studied it ever since I was born." “The world was mv text-book.” And in all reverence he answered the last, “God makes the wind blow.” The standings were posted at last and he went meekly down to the Temple-of-Famc on-Cherry-Avenue. One day, he heard some one call him “Jack Cherry." He puzzled over this because at home-by-thc-Black-Swamp the teacher called him "Johnnie” and he had enrolled in big letters as John Cherry. In ovemlx r, when pa sold the barley, he bought some long trousers and had his hair cut at the barber’s. Thenceforth, he is The-boy-with-trousers-to-his-shoe-tops and hair-parted-in-the-middle. PART III. In January, he becomes a Normalite in all save Senior Grammar. The Boy-with-trousers-to-his-shoe-tops and hair-parted-in-the-middle studies anatomy and learns all about the hair, and the gehms-which-destroy, about the Great-White-Scourge, and in Arithmetic, he—who at the Little-Brick-School-house-by-the-Black-Swamp, had ciphered thru the whole of Robinson’s Arithmetic, learns anew how to add and multiply. How gingerly he treads the stairs these days! How ardently he hopes he may some day walk confidently like Dave Allen, and Ed Loew! How he wishes he could talk easily to a girl as does Kent Morgan! What would he give to argue like Ed Dempsey ! But—time—and change! PART IV. After the hot vacation, during which he dreamed of the time when he would lx a Teacher-of-School -Management-and-play-golf, the-bov-with-a-red-tie-and-no-vest returns to school. He becomes a Sophomore near the end of that year and ventures Page one hundred thirty-fournear the door of the Ladies' Study. Twice he escorts Tvlle home from Junior Phoenix. How heartily he enters the track-meet and makes the hundred-yard dash in 12:2-5. Twas Gallagher he fain would Ik- that year, Gallagher, the logical, the forceful, the persuasive. During that vacation, the dreams are of football glory, the ideal is Editor of a great Educational Journal—like the Advance. PART V. The-boy-with-a-shirt-waist-and-oxfords is out watching a footbal practice. There is Rosenthal, the big man. Ah. yes. the-boy will play football. He becomes a Scrub, but keeps scrubbing so faithfully that the XTew-Coach-from-Knox-College says, "That boy has timber." The boy becomes a Latin Student this quarter—but hie, haec, hoc prove too knotty—.Yon omnia vi licit labor—because he is Iteginning to learn that study is unnecessary—George 1 Icwitt doesn't study. 'Tis now he becomes a logical-reasoner-who-can-hlutT. PART VI. After a summer S| cnt selling stereoscopic views, the young-man-with-a-gray-suit-and-linen-collar walks confidently into the Senior Study and talks to a pretty-Senior-with-forty-months-cxperience-in-teaching. To her he confides his hopes, to Ik the Editor of the Quiver, the leader of the Junior debate, winner of the oratorical contest, the president of his class, captain of the football team, and some day Superintendent of City Schools. In German, that day, the Senior girl gazes at him and mumbles on. "Ich liebe dich." and next day his program reads: 8:00. German III. Ex. R. H. H. 9-21-03. He plays Sub on the football team, gets sixth place in the oratorical .eighth in the preliminary debate, but will surely lx Riley Xo. 2 next year. Compensation—He does play basketball. PART VII. Well, the man-with-a-black-tie-and-linen-cufTs who wants to lx principal of a city Graded school, pauses in the door of the “Old Ladies" Study. There he secs and converses with the pretty Junior, the High School Graduate from West Salem. That was a glorious year, with its long Christmas vacation. What success was his at football, basketball, track and field sports, baseball ( ?)! 1 low gloriously he won the second place in the oratorical! How successfully he led the debate! How thoroly he managed his department of the Advance! How joyfully he received “Excellent!" in practice. How many times he changed his seat in the Indies 'Study from Freshman’s row to Junior Josh-pit! At last. garlx d in the most conventional black, he says Farewell! with the shecp-skin-in-thc-right-hand and in the left the contract-to-be-principal-of-a-two-room-State-Graded-School!

TERRIBLE DISASTER. Destructive Fire on Wright Street. About six o’clock last night, fire broke out at the home of Miss Eva Vansistinc. 142 Wright Street, and completely destroyed her work on "The History of My Ancestry." The loss is very heavy, representing several weeks' work and the work is such that it can scarcely be replaced. The author recently remarked that her Ancestry was not long enough and she had spent hours in stretching it. The work is a total loss, uncovered by assurance. WEATHER. Somewhat cooler tonight.

'Pile Lathe turned lazily over: “What an old Saw you are!" he remarked. "Well, you needn’t raise so much smoke about it anyway.” buzzed hack the Saw. There was silence for a moment. A Table stretched its legs, the waste-basket yawned, and a Bench mumbled something alxnit being relieved of its Vise. Don’t keep Hammering away on that. Can’t you Frame something new ?" “If he does, we will have to place it on File." "I hear Motor is about to start a Belt Line." "He has. lie is in the Power Company, too." “Did S|X)kc-shave this morning?" “Yes. I had quite a Brush with Gimlet last night. He is such a bore." “Well, don’t let that sjx il the temper of Awl."

A key grated in the lock. Silence settled in the Manual Training Department as they let the Floor Cement their friendship. A Fable There was once a band of sweet-voiced singers ujx)n whom fortune lx stowed a well-filled purse. In the same land, there dwelt a strong giant, who tho lie often won prizes at the Olympian games, was always in need. The giant sought out the singers and asked for charity that he might roll off a portion of the burden of debt which he bore and thus Ik strengthened to do more valiant deeds. The singers listened to his plea and their hearts were moved to a deed of charity. From their coffers, they counted out pieces of silver unto the amount of twenty-fiv dollars and placed it in the giant’s outstretched palm. But this giant. lK ing a vain fellow, took the money and decked himself in azure garb. Haec fabula docet: When the Glee Club has money to give away, give it to the Girls’ League.

Our Donation Party I ’sjjose you've all lieerd of thet donation party we gin? Xo? Why, it beat all. The Athletic Association had run itself in debt, as it allers does. For the life of me I can't see no sense in football and I guess the players sec less cents. But, to resoom and perceed. Well, the faculty hunted over every known and unknown sort o’ entertainment under the stars. Some wanted a vauderville an' some wanted a fair, but they fiti’ly settled down on a Donation party, an’ we had a regular circus an' side show thrown in. First the students heerd of it, Mr. Hewitt.—he’s a great feller to say things,—got up one morning and jest natcherly stirred up so much sweetness that he got every girl to promise a pound of candy. Miss Downing and Miss Shepardson took charge o’ the donations an’ they kep' a coining in till they thought they’d have a plenty left over to last them the rest o’ their Normal life. But, no sirree! Each class had a booth an’ sold it an’ pretty girls—they didn’t sell the girls, an’ they had a program an' Fred Clow sang, and Maurice Small tried to make a speech and they cut him off on time, an’, oh. Mitchell run things great an' the gal who represented the school at Stevens Point, sat in that air Regent’s Office a finishin' her speech an’ never saw a bit of it nor bit a decent bit of candy, an’ oh it was great. But, they cleaned up sum money. They had nigh onto eighty-five dollars after their debts was all paid. But, do you know, there was a number of them who was there who hevn’t looked at a bit of candy since. Page one hundred thirty-nineThe Assembling of the Eloquent (?) O Benevolence, thou subtle spirit, dwelling in the heart of a woman, thou didst im-|h 1 her to offer herself and her art to the students of the Oshkosh Normal School; thou didst send her abroad among them saying, ‘Wouldst thou speak better than thou hast? If so, then come with me, and if the power lx- mine, I will teach thee." () Vainglory, thou siren of Fame, cohabitcr with Ambition, abiding in the mind of man, thou lurest him on to taste of life in the fullness thereof. Thou drivest away sluggishness and incitest to a striving after power. When in the benevolence of her heart this teacher s|x ke. Vainglory bestirred itself in the youthful mind, and Charles Veltc answered, saying: “Yea. verily will 1 follow thee. The raptures of forensic eloquence have called me long. My voice is powerful and deep ' Stephen Brunner saying: “Thou speakest truly. I have poured my rich rolling tones forth upon the quiet woodland air. and the birds have ceased their warbling; forth upon the verdant hillside, and the lambs have ceased their bleating, forth amid the clamorous barnyard din, and the hens have ceased to cackle." Eva Yansistine saying: “Gladly will I come with thee. Could I but speak with power and | erfect grace, ’twould lx- my greatest joy in life. 1 long to play on the finer chords of Soul." Chris Rupp saying: “I need offer no excuse that 1 do join this hand. Ye all do know that 1 ever have starred in things forensical. I would e’en now I were abroad among ‘God's Patient Poor. ” Josephine Gannon saying: “Sayest thou that I may talk my heart’s desire if I but join? I will, I will, such paradise 1 cannot refuse.” Walter Hagman saying: “Mv sjx-ech is now most excellent. I have a record such as few can boast of. If thou thinkest to aid me further doth lie within thy power, forsooth. I’ll come, and work most faithfully.” Milton Jones saying: “Thy words ensnare me. That I may truly grow in strength and power of utterance. I would forego the greatest ( ?) pleasure of my life.” Edith Yelland saying: “That thou dost single me from many others of more brilliant mind and fairer sjx-ech doth much confound me. 1 do not care to stand lx fore the public gaze. I have an inward thirst for other work than this. Yet. I will join.” Donald Black saying: “To speak to fellow-men the language of the heart, to sing the music of the soul that lures a man lx yond his power. Yea, I am lured.” Ella Farnsworth saying: “Time hangs heavy on my hands. I thus may spend an hour or so.” Earl McDougal saying: “My sjx-aking now has won me praise. Yet. who knows hut diligence may win for me that which to other men is given free.” Page one hundred fortyForest Sorenson saying: “Had I a mighty voice, impressive mien and lofty form. I too might guerdon gain in this the work for which I crave. But I will make the lx-st of what I have.” Katherine Foley saying: “O, yes, enroll me as one of you. It is another field in which to win high honors for myself." Emanuel Paulu saying: "I have a record to maintain. Yc know my voice is rich, melodious, and pure. Yet shall ye hear of me.” Howard Thackray saying: “Thou sayest I am too modest? That I give promise of rare eloquence ? Well, once so thought I too. I will try again." Eleanor Geusscnhainer saying: “Yes, 1 will come.” Clara Philipps saying: “Yes, I will come.” A Daring Deed The maiden clutches wildly at her skirts. Her eyes grow round with terror. She clutches her book tightly as if to exterminate a deadly fix . Around her swims a sea of faces. The scornful eyes of all arc upon her. To retreat or display hesitation now would lx to proclaim herself a coward. She gazes at the object of her fear again. It has not moved. She fancies she feels its hot breath in her face. Gathering her strength, courage, and skirts together she suddenly leaps the dire abyss and the Auditorium register passed, proceeds triumphantly to the Senior Study. The Charge of the Valiant Six Miss Bradseth marched slowly down the aisle and halted. Behind her in strict military arrangement marched Miss Couture bearing a lever. Miss Malx with a fulcrum. Miss Goodnough with a chain. Miss Hcdkc with a wheelbarrow and Miss Wood with rule, pencil and paper. The fulcrum is put in place. Miss Wood measures the lever and computes the necessary power. The chain is carefully adjusted. Then five unite in an effort to tilt the lever and raise the weight. It is raised, the wheelbarrow pushed under and—lo! the task is accomplished. Triumphantly then Miss Wood begins her charge: “Ladies, behold! Therein (pointing to barrow) lies the object of our wrath and struggle. To you has been entrusted a task in minimum proportion to your number. yet to me and my trusted lieutenants it were a grievous labor. You are false— yea. I repeat it. false—to your trust. You plighted vows and kept them not. The very thought overwhelms me with grief. I can say—no—more. Here is evidence of vour treason, pencil clippings—and you all members of the Girls’ Ixaguc!” Silence settled for a moment, then in a sudden revulsion of feeling the six broke into a ballad as they marched out: “So sing a song to the broom, A weapon of might and right. And be not afraid to sing it Whenever you thing it's ‘bright.’ A song to the broom, say we, A song to the good, clean broom, It brightens our hearts and homes And clears away life’s gloom.”44 The Best People in the World” cA Comedy-cDrAm Scene: The State Institution between Algoma and Elm Streets, Oshkosh.
