This is our President; our guide and friend. He is a man to l c proud of and we honor him. His unimpeachable character, dignified appearance, and earnest efforts lead us to appreciate his goodness more and more. President Halsey is a man and every inch a man. In the future when we look hack to our Alma Mater we shall consider the days spent here as the pleasantest of our whole life and shall never forget our devoted friend. President Halsey.
Page tzvclvcROSE C. SWART.
In order to know tlu- extent of Miss Swart's work mid influence, one must take a practice class under Iter supervision. I'hcn and then only, will the full realization of what Miss Swart has done for the school he impressed upon him. In fact five minutes’ consultation with her will give the most discouraged practice teacher an inspiration for a whole week's work. Our supervisor is known and respected not only within the Normal hut throughout the country, and prowl is the student who goes forth with Miss Swart's recommendation as a teacher.

Page fourteenEMILY 1 WEBSTER.
Think of her, whom you will find in the Mathematics classroom at almost any hour helping some class, her whose warm heart goes out to every student, her who trains to “accuracy and rapidity"—that is Miss Webster. Our interests are her interests at all times. As we know and appreciate her. there come genuine admiration and love for her.
LYDON W. BRIGGS.
In Mr. Briggs we find a true friend and adviser. To him we turn in our sadder hours for practical, cheering advice, and to him we look in our gayer moods as an indulgent believer in good, wholesome amusements. His wide experience in the teaching profession makes his word of recognized value not only in our school but thruout a large portion of our state. His friendship is therefore valuable while we are in school and doubly so when we are ready to go forth in search of a position.
HARRIET E. CLARK.
To pursue a forgetful Sophomore who failed to present a declamation; to endure untold suffering while an aspiring Junior stumbles thru "A Plea for Cuba.” to help a dignified Senior adapt a weighty lecture to the minds of inferior lower classmen,- these are a few of the things which Miss Clark must do in one day. But in spite of it all her bright face and active manner make the time s|K-nt in her company thoroly delightful.
MARY E. APTHORP.
| ew of the students not pursuing the Latin course realize what a witty, altogether delightful individual presides at the desk in the Latin room. To those blessed by her instruction the recitation hour—even tho it Ik? in dreaded prose—is one to be looked forward to Minionl the day. Her present regret is that a cat instead of a goddess docs not guard her door. Until the feline can be provided there are a hundred Junior girls ready to protect Miss Apthorp from all hann.
HARRIET CECIL MAGEE.
"An artist who works because the spirit is in her—and she cannot he silent if she would." This earnestness of purpose and spirit of optimism are the distinctive characteristics which make Miss Magee what she is—an uplifting |xnvcr. As her voice directs us to a study and appreciation of nature, so her whole life leads us to a keener and broader insight of the mysteries of life.
WALTER C. HEWITT.
The W(itty) C(ourageous) II (umorist) of the Faculty, who teaches the classes in School Management. Geometry, Spelling. Mental Arithmetic. Trigonometry. Physical Geography. Algebra, and any other subject that is left, holds first place in the hearts of the students. His unrivaled enthusiasm in either work or play makes a success of anything he undertakes, as is evidenced in the high standard of the rural schools ami his phenomenal golf scores. And, as some one has said: "Mr. Hewitt is the lxrst yet; he can’t he heat."
It is truly marvelous how great the influence upon those who come under the power of this quiet, dignified woman and friend. Who can ever fail to cxjwricncc a fervent desire to he “up ami doing" after spending forty minutes in a Rhetoric class under her inspiring: influence? She is a helper that we all appreciate more and more as we grow better acquainted with her. and when we have finished our course in Rhetoric we only wfM that we could take more of our studies under Miss Henderson.8.

Page sixteenADOLPHUS II SAGE.
Me may be found daily elucidating for curious but interested students some of the intricate laws of the physical universe. When not at this task he may be found experimenting and pondering over puzzling problems in natural philosophy. With the sagacity of insight which we may call genius, he explains the perplexing problems of physics so that the mistiness in the minds of students disappear as by enchantment.
HENRY N. GODDARD.
Urged on life's way by varied duties, yet.
Performing each task with never-tiring zeal.
Mysterious molecules, while reflecting a property in his restless manner.
Arc the center of his graver thoughts;
But in the dainty pumpkin vine and aster of our campus garden
His simpler interests lie revealed.
For him. we willingly obey all lalto-alory rules:
And utKracked jokes, like fumes, wreathe round and round.
We save ours.—so docs he;
And spring them all at the "Chemistry Spree."
LILLIAN G. KIMBALL.
Miss Kimball is queen of the Professional English domain. It is from her we receive the knowledge of how to teach the eight parts of speech and all "that thereon hangs." Greater than this is the model site puts liefore us. Always grave and sweet, she humbles yet encourages us so that we resolve to keep a titT upper lip and to become like her. Her sound common-sense talks lift a discouraged student from the vale of tears and spur him on.
FREDERICK R. CLOW.
A large, broad mind, enriched by economic laws and principles.
The nourishment whereby our tiny brains expand and grow!
Ever on deepest thoughts intent, which blossom into noble deeds
And find expression in literary work or modern architecture.
How delightful the conversation, a product of calm and deep insight.
Of this man in whom we recognize so much as unexpressed.
ELLEN F. P. PEAKE.
We all sing the praise of this patron of literature. Her sympathetic nature wins the hearts of students. In each is awakened a higher ideal. With a thoro knowledge of the subject site teaches and with her encouraging way. she creates a desire to know more about the great writers.
B. MACK DRESDEN.
Where shall we find a more excellent example of one who combines all the best qualities in his every-day life, than Mr. Dresden. Kind to a marvelous degree, patient beyond comparison and with a judgment that rings with the truth of sincerity, he. by his presence in his chosen profession, raises it to the dignity and poise of one of the greatest of the great professions.
HARRY R. FLING.
Here is a man who is a worker, and who rightfully expects others to do their share. A lover of facts, he holds others to clear cold facts. With an eye keen to observe the future possibilities in life, he yet holds those whom he instructs to their present conditions and surroundings, lie is a master of facts, a just critic, and a judge of human nature.

Page eighteenFRANK K. MITCHELL.
Frank E. Mitchell, intended hy nature to he a philosopher and inventor; forced hy circumstances to teach geography in the Oshkosh Normal School. His wit is uncqualcd. his ability to tell stories would make him famous were he to put them in l»ook form. The students say. “Mitchell’s ail right, isn't he? Clot so much out of the quarter's work! A lot of geography, a lot of geology, a lot of psychology, a lot of physics,—all l ound together by common sense.”
KATHERINE S. Al.VORD.
Some day when you are wandering thru the corridors of the third Hour you may accidentally spy a door laln-led, “History." If you should, do, not fail to enter, for you will find one who will welcome you cordially. This i Miss Katherine S. Alvord. associate in History and Latin. She is an enthusiast. No one can enter her classes without l cing inspired by her to labor for higher goals.
ELLA G. PAR M RLE.
One of the best friends of the students is our librarian. No one seeing the students lined up at the library door, anxious to say "good morning" before their eight o’clock class can doubt this. In the evening it i-» just the same,—the librarian is the last one to whom we say good night. Nov who can justly claim to be more popular than Miss Pannele?
AUGUSTUS W. TRETTIEN.
As a man’s principles, so the man; and as a man. so his works! We see many men who preach the doctrine, but their words fall upon our ears only a% so many empty syllables simply because their lives do not bear out their words. To have strong principles and live up to them is to be a man. Mr. Trettien is not only this but he combines with it the rare gift of imparting to others the desire to be like him. which power is the gift of the teacher.
MARY I. MeFADDEN.
Every time I pass her door and see her at her desk and catch her friendly smile I think:— Strong and always true and kind,
A better friend you could not find.
Practice teachers truly love her And other students roirtd her hover.
While with cheery smile and kindly word.
All their trials and troubles arc heard.
In her beautiful dark brown eyes A look of sympathy lies.
L. L. SUMMERS.
Mr. Summers believes that a teacher to be worthy the name, should be a doer as well as a thinker. How well lie exemplifies this in his daily routine. All his work is practical, progressive, and inspiring, lie is a man exactly fitted to his chosen work—full of energy and manual ability and still well balanced by his sound pedagogical views. In order to appreciate fully his patience and kindly spirit, one has to spend but a few periods of work under his direction.
WALTER F. COOLIIIGK.
Where would athletics lie, but for Mr. Coolidgc? The one who is constantly planning means whereby this phase of school work may not be financially wrecked. What would Income of our Iniys, were it not for this man. their adviser and their spur?
No amount of work too much.
No effort too great.
To help the athletes accomplish
What they undertake.

Page twentyGRACH L SHEPARDSON.
One of the pleasant reminiscences of Normal days will Ik the time we spent in the gymnasium with our physical instructor. Miss Shepardson, a lady fair, who gently hut firmly rules. Some say he is "jolly," some "she's a peach." and all say that she has a bright, cheerful word for every one. With a face that never bears the faintest semblance of a frown, she gives command.
Patience and kindness our affections win.
For her, the gracious ruler of ottr gym.
MAURICE H. SMALL.
Mr. Small, study yourself, take an introspective view, and you will see a person always doing something for others. Now you arc taking the baby for an airing, or you are helping the worthy (•'acuity to roll up a score at basketball: again you are poring over some program, or cheering a homesick heart, or coaching a debating team,—always a helpful friend.
ANNIE L. ROONEY.
Annie Rooney, whose name has been made immortal in song, will Ik remembered for her benevolent -spirit and never-failing wit. The Sophomores laud her good work and cheerful demeanor when they return from her classes in composit ion. The Juniors praise her ready assistance on essays and declamations. A happy combination of name and nature.
ELSIE L. BOWMAN.
Besides Mis . Bowman’s excellent ability along the art line, she has other qualities that possibly are appreciated more by those who are not so fortunate as to have work in her classes. In the short time that she has been here, she has won many friends. When passing down the corridors laden with hooks and worrying over some dreaded examination, we by chance met Miss Bowman and received one of her pleasant smiles and a nod, all our cares for the moment scented to vanish; her happy disposition gave us hope and a desire to put forth our In-st efforts.
GRACE R. DARLING.
This is Mrs. Darling, with whom we delve among the relics of the past; who. because of her own deep interest, inspire-, in ys an interest in the events of History. Under her direction the study of History becomes a living, animated subject. A we first enter her classes, we begin the customary cramming of facts, but we soon learn what History should mean, and we find ourselves truly enjoying the work. She demands the best one is capable of doing, hut withal she is kind and generous.
Miss Barden's work consists of conducting classes in Composition and Library Readings, and taking charge of half the Junior Rhetoricals.
There is a small teacher named Barden,
With no cause to beg any one’s pardon:
S9 dainty and neat.
So small and so sweet.
You ne'er can find one like Miss Barden.
MAUDE SHAM EL.
A slight figure, quick, bright, blue eyes; a fair, firm face: a pretty head covered with soft golden hair; a clear voice. That's Miss Shame!. Cheerful always, fond of assisting everybody; patient; gentle; sought out by many a disheartened practice teacher; considerate of everybody; loved by all. That's Miss Sliamei.

With gentle firmness of speech and manner; with kindness and jnstice: with thoughtfulness alike for pupil and teacher, beloved is Miss Marvin who rules the Grammar department. To he on Miss Marvin's "Honor Roll" is indeed a matter of no small moment.
CECIL M. PALMER.
Who is that energetic young woman that with her winning ways and pleasant voice holds sway over all her pupils? That is Miss Palmer,—Miss Marvin’s trusty helper; and well she deserves the confidence placed in her for she is conscientious in everything she docs. She is an enthusiastic lover of birds, and many a morning finds her awake as early as the birds she loves, studying their habits and listening to their matin song. She is best described in the lines:—
M Twas her thinking of others made you think of her."
Miss Hampton came to us from Iliopolis at !he beginning of the year. Into her solicitous care are given the difficult problems of the Intermediate department. Miss Hampton is a sincere woman, entirely devoted to the interests of her pupils and the welfare of the school.
KATHLYNE J. I.l UREY.
Dear to the hearts of all the children is Miss Lihln-y. the teacher of the Second Primary Department. She is loved for her sunny disposition, her sympathy, her gentleness, and her strength. Always ready to lend a helping hand, she insnircs us to better work. I etter deeds, and ln-tter lives. In her prestncc. cares and troubles seem to vanish and contentment and peace come in their stead.
Gentle and patient but firm with little folks. She is a help to all who seek her. You may know she “approves" when you see her face light up with that little twinkle in her bright brown eyes. Mi's Stevens is respected by all and loved by tH se who know her.
An earnest, loving worker whose only goal is to direct little hearts and minds along paths which only the noble tread. Each day she watches over all. turns each act into the channel of truth, and sets forth an example of noblest character and sweetest modesty.
Miss Marvin, the private secretary of the President, holds sway over us all. Even the professors must obey her summons. She has the power to interrupt their recitations and call students from their classes. She guards our records faithfully, but what student does not envy her this power before the spelling and mental arithmetic standings are posted. She knows all our successes, as well as our failures, and could tell our tales of woe. One who can keep such important matters secret is admired by us all.
LUCY A. POTTER.
There is a member of our Faculty who has so many good characteristics that it is hard to enumerate them. Each year as The Qiiver appears many tales are told of her sweet disposition, of her pleasant smile and obliging manner, but the writer is yet to come who can do justice to— Miss Potter.
Page twenty-threeA Tale of the Seniors
President.......................Henry G. Hot
Vice-President..................Zaidkk I. Bovee
Vc who believe in the Seniors, who live and who reign and are niigluy Ye who have faith in the class that has toiled and reached the tall summit. List to the annals of Seniors, all rich with the glories of conquest.
List to the tale of the Normal, the merry-go-round of teachers.
In the thriving city of Oshkosh, on the shores of the blue Winnebago, Massive, towered, dark the famous Normal of Oshkosh,
Stood on the wooded campus. West flowed the Fox ‘mong the timbers, Rippling a song of the North and the bay, and away to the southward Tall factories rose and spired churches, and above in the sky lands White clouds sailed the blue, and the great god of light Smiled on the scene below, the home of the good and the happy.
There in the halls of the Normal reigned the Seniors of prowess;
Rich in fame were these maidens and men, for their strength, and their wit, and their wisdom.
Such as none lx re who had gone o’er the way they were going.
Modest were they, of quiet demeanor, and many observing
Knew not of their deeds nor dreamed they abounded in learning.
Solemnly thru the halls walked the Senior girl, and the Juniors Paused in their talk, to see the l x k she assumed to warn them.
Silently day by day in the sunny study of Seniors
Toiled the diligent maids, the pride and hope of Wisconsin.
Meekly, one by one. thru the ranks of diligent maidens
Passed the youths, short and tall, the manliest men of the Normal.
So dwelt together in peace, these rosebud and sunflower Seniors.
Dwelt in the grace of Miss Peake, and in her found their star.
True was she and kind, the gentlest woman among them.
Titled to guide and inspire to wisdom and virtue.
Twenty times has the moon risen and set. and now in these last hours Sadly look they out on the slipping day of their greatness.
Soon in the misty past to lie silent and dreaming.
Musing they falter. Now to think on the life they are leaving.
T'.rc it has vanished for aye in the shifting view of life’s canvas.
All is ended s x n. the joy. and the toil and the sorrow;
All the striving for truth, the sleepless unrecompensed digging.
And as they turn away from the stately towers of Normal.
Sadly they’ll heave a sigh and say. "Alma Mater, we love thee.”

In the beautiful city of Hasshok. there lives a noble king, named Hcwalt. Thru his goodness of heart, thru his sympathy, and thru his kindness and generosity he is Indovcd by many. By his continual watchfulness, studying the world far and near, and keeping himself informed at all times of internal affairs, he is lxdicvcd to he one of the wisest of sovereigns.
In the early autumn of the first year of King Hewalt’s reign, he called an assembly of six and eighty of his subjects to l.atnorn castle, to hear his words of counsel, and assume their obligations. Me said:
Mv dear friends,—I congratulate you that you are young; I congratulate you that you live in an age of progress. Knowing that the life of every nation, as of each individual. is a tattle, let us remember also that the battle is to those who tight with faith and unremitting !al r. A erv is heard.—‘‘A miracle of genius!” Yes. he is a miracle of genius. In-cause he is a miracle of labor: because lie makes use of the accumulated wisdom of ages, and improves every opportunity. Therefore. I say. love knowledge; love virtue; love purity of character and conduct: love that which will comfort you and never leave you. Do not Ik- intimidated by the difficulties which so often beset knowledge. hut follow her as the “genius of your life."
11 is subjects buckled on their armor and went forth to battle. All sought to conquer; some succeeded, some failed, some weakened and left his kingdom, until of the mighty host, there remained but six and twenty.
I hit during the third year of his reign, there came into his kingdom clans from the North. South. Rast. and West, to till up the vacant ranks. It was not long before these new subjects, felt the influence and example of the conquering few.
Of these some have set their seal to Ijecome great as artists, some as musicians, some as poets, some as artisans, and some as pedadgogs. Yet with all these great ones among them, they are a quiet, peaceable, unassuming people, bearing their laurels with modesty, and accepting with cheerful obedience all duties assigned them, feeling that their In-st is none too good.

In the months of April and September, of the year 1904, there entered the )shkosh Normal a horde of graduates and post-graduates from the “Academy," the irammar Room, and other places. These banded themselves together in an organization called. “The Freshmen." At that period they were innocent and green to look ii|x)n. As the days passed they grew wise and prospered. Their spring-like appearance vanished.
In the fall of 1905. they returned from the factory, the hay field, the golf ground, and the selling of stereoscopic views, no more to Ik Freshmen: hut to be worthy Sophomores—Sophomores by name and by nature. As proofs of this advancement let us notice certain changes in the habits of the more prominent members, George Wehrwein
took Fate hv the horns and-------. Marry Bowen's black shirt vanished, and in its place
a broad expanse of white was seen. William Sterling became a practice teacher, and Reginald Sanders was appointed Self-Government officer for the 1 130 period.
Now let us consider the class seriously. The class made a good beginning, organizing and electing one for their president whose long ex]K riencc as a class president, made the election a most fitting one. flic next act was the drawing up and the adoption of a constitution.
Next to the adoption of the constitution the most important action which the class performed was the giving of a reception. This occurred 011 Washington's birthday. The Freshmen guests were welcomed at the door of the red. white, and blue trimmed gymnasium by George and Martha Washington. Then they were presented with a souvenir of the evening. After this the visitors passed to the various attractions that were placed around the room for their amusement. The most interesting amusement was “The Old-Fashioned Turkey Shoot." which drew many contestants. I11 some cases the fair contestants were decidedly unfair in that they jn-rsisted in shooting the persons in charge of the turkey, rather than the turkey.
In addition to what the class has done as a whole, let us sec what its members have done individually. Athletics have l ccn well supported by this class. The Sophomore boys have been represented in every boys’ team in the school, and the girls have supported their side by playing basketball and hockey. I11 debate the Sophomore class can feel justly proud, for the Normal. Illinois, debating team is comjjosed entirely of Sophomore men. A man belonging to this class assists in managing The Advance.
Always pushing and striving, never daunted by failure—thats the Sophomore class.

The district schools of the state sent forth their choicest members, and on August jS. one hundred and forty strong, the Freshman class made its debut at the Oshkosh Normal. Tho somewhat shy and awkward we were at once recognized as a talented and capable class, both in brain and brawn. That our future achievements would live long in song and story, was not. for a moment, doubted.
The first class meeting was held September 6. when class officers were elected. Much time and talk were devoted to this weighty question, a choice living hard to make on account of the efficiency of all members.
Despite the freezing glances and superior smiles of the Sophomores, we decided to break the former custom of the school and give a reception in their honor. A novel and interesting Hallowe’en party was the product of our fertile brains.
"He who Ixiasts before, weeps the more." was the brilliant prophecy made by the Freshmen when they heard the bragging challenge of the Sophomores. On the night of February 3. the Freshman basketball team of girls fulfilled the prophecy and made their opponents "weep the more" when they defeated them by the close score of 7 to 4. I hit later we were defeated by the old (but hardly rheumatic) Seniors, who with their superior skill, together with their lofty self-confidence (we dare not call it conceit) pre sented a battle array not to Ik- broken.
Our hope is that our success in the future may come up to. or surpass if |K ssiblc. our success of the past.

Xillth A Graduating Class.Ninth A Graduating Class
The class graduating from the Grammar Room this year consisted of seventeen members, four of whom had come thru all the grades, five of whom had entered in the intermediate grades, and the remaining eight had entered in the Grammar Room. Right of the class entered the Normal proper.
A literary dub was formed by the class during the winter, to study Southern life as pictured by Southern writers. As the meetings were of a social as well as a literary nature many enjoyable evenings were spent. The most of the time was spent in studying Ruth McKncrv Stuart's "The Frey's Christmas Party." "Napoleon Jackson, the Gentleman of the Plush Rocker," and C harles Egbert Craddock’s. "The Prophet of the Great Smoky Mountain." from which scenes for the graduating exercises were taken.

"In union there is strength." Realizing the truth of this quotation from long years of negative experience, in which the “Special” students have been merely a vague spot on the rushing tide of Normal life, known of only bv rumor, considered in nothing appertaining to school life, buffeted about, not knowing upon which class, or what faction to place their trust; but confident of being a power for good in the school if properly organized, the thirteen “Special” students of the Oshkosh Normal School met in Mr. Cow’s room. March 12. 1906, at 4:10 o’clock. P. M.. to discuss the advisability of organizing themselves into a permanent class of the school. Matters were taken up in a business like manner and with a great deal of enthusiasm. A chairman was elected, who put the purpose of the meeting before those assembled, and after a short discussion it was decided that the special students should become an organized body. Officers were then elected.
Since our organization has been firmly established, enthusiasm, and class spirit have run high. There have been numerous class meetings, by the aid of which each member has been grafted into his proper place, and made perfectly familiar with his duties as a memlK-r of the new organization. At one of the first meetings of the class, committees were ap()ointcd to draw up a constitution, select class colors and designs for the shajK of the same, and for the class inscription they were to lx ar. At a later special meeting the committee reports were read and accepted. A constitution, brief, but plain and concise, was adopted, which will appear in the “Normal Hand Book” of next year.
The class colors adopted were maroon and gold. The form in which the banner is to appear is a triangle, four inches broad by eight long, bearing the Greek letter “Sigma” (S), and the figures ’06. The background of the banner is to Ik maroon, while the letters arc to l)C of gold. The boys of the class are particularly enthusiastic over athletics, and so are the two girl members of the organization. The boy members, encouraged by the two girls, have organized a track team, and also a baseball team in which the class places great confidence, expecting them to carry off not a few honors in both the entries.
We only desire one more thing, and that is to be recognized by the other classes of the school as a permanent organization. The members of the Special class to-day arc holding some important positions in the civil life of the school and it shall l e our policy to so conduct ourselves that others may feel that the “Special Class” is worthy of their confidence.

The purpose of the Students’ Christian Association is to help the students of the Normal School in every jiossible way, to assist in preserving a high moral attitude in the school, and to keep its members in close fellowship in the Christian life.
Kacli of the two branches holds a devotional meeting once a week. During the past year the Young Women’s branch has found it most convenient to meet at 4:15 on Thursdays, and the young men have gathered at 6130 . The latter spend an hour or more in Bible study with some one of the members as leader for the evening. Since the first of October the line of study in ()ld Testament history as used by the Senior department of the Presbyterian Sunday School has been the basis of these Thursday night meetings. The other branch has regularly assigned topics and leaders. It is felt that those who attend are greatly helped.
On Sundays the two branches unite for a service at 9:15 A. M. During the past winter, however, the hour has been 4:30 P. M. for the greater convenience of students and speakers. Members of the Faculty, pastors of the city churches, visiting clergymen, and others, have addressed us this year. Occasionally the service has been in the nature of a devotional meeting with one of the students as leader.
The annual 1 land Book published by the association is Incoming more indispensable each year. The last one, which was entirely revised by Mr. B. 'I'. Williams, contained many new and valuable features.
I.ast September, in place of the usual opening reception on the campus the Association and Faculty entertained the students of the school with a boat ride to Calumet. It was the consensus of opinion that we had a most delightful day.
The Christian Association wishes to live up to its aims. Its usefulness depends entirely upon the self-sacrificing support of the members of our school.
True friendship is life’s greatest halm,
It hears us o’er the roughest way.
Stands by us l oth thru storm and calm,
And brings us near to perfect day.
This life is full of pain and troubles;
Against one do they combine;
But oft they break in golden bubbles
When pierced by friendship’s true sunshine.

Since the time of Aristotle the Lyceum has always stood for the highest standards in literary and educational lines. Some things as they grow older lose their vitality, hilt this institution, like Madeira, increases in strength and quality as it increases in age. This year has seen no exception to this steady growth.
'Phe Society has. as usual, taken an important part in the debating and declamatory contests of the school. In the latter part of March. Lyceum and I’hilologian crossed swords and tho we cannot boast of voctorv we can have the satisfaction of work worthily performed. The future still holds concealed the decisions of the next two contests. As usual the Phoenix and Lyceum are to handy words over a profound question and to the victor belongs the spoils. We feel assured that next year we shall still he working under the I enign eyes of Old Alx . In addition to our usual work we have entered a debating contest with Philakean. We feel proud in furnishing two of the Junior debaters.
Our programs have shown a great variety in their nature. Music has formed an esj ccially large part in our program and parliamentary drill has kept up to its usual high standard. The Society has been very fortunate in having some excellent talks by different monitors of the Faculty.
We hope that we have not reached the climax in our work, but that the years to come may hold in store still greater honors for the Lyceum.
()n Friday evening. May 4. a society cast of characters gave the delightful play. “Esmeralda." in the Normal Auditorium. 'Phis was the only play put on hv any of the five literary societies during the year and it was entirely worthy of such distinction. An exceptionally large and appreciative audience attended and many conijn-tent critics are of the opinion that “Esmeralda" scored one of the greatest successes of any play ever given under the school’s auspices.
'l he cast was well chosen and under the strong coaching of Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge developed pleasing stage ability. In short, the play was a tremendous success, and Lyceum has every reason to feel proud of her t efforts in the play line.

A conversation was overheard between two non-society students the other day. One of them on looking at the Phoenix case, noticed the name on it. and said. “Phoenix, what society is that?” “Don’t you know ?” the other replied: “W hy, Howlett. the orator, belongs to it. Katie Mehder. the valedictorian. Mary Minahan. class historian, arc members. W’chrweln. who took first place in the Illinois preliminary debate, is a member, and I tell you they are all right."
Certainly, Phoenix Society, the second oldest in the school, has Ix-en doing some good work during the past year. Those who were members of the Society when it was first organized laud our work when they come back to visit the "dear old society."
Much work has been done in the line of debates, parliamentary drills, and impromptu speeches. The members have taken a lively interest in the work of the Society and evidence of it is shown by the progress of Phoenix. Aside from the literary work. Phoenix has had some very enjoyable social affairs, with sister societies and alone. A sleigh-ride was given the Lyceum and Philologian Societies in return for receptions tendered us by them, besides banquets and spreads from time to time.
Shall we Phoenicians, as long as we live and have a spark of spirit left within us. forget the night of our home contest, when Irving R. Howlett. Phoenician, won first place and Richard C. I falsey was given third ? Shall we forget how modest our orator was and how calm and dignified he stood in our midst, while we cheered wildly and waved our banners above his head? And again, at Milwaukee, can we who took the trip ever forget the pride we felt within ourselves, when Irving Howlett stood up to deliver his oration, and we said, each one to himself. “He is a Phoenician. I’m glad I am.”
The motto of the Society, “Culture, not show.” has been lived up to. We have had many successes, still we are the same jolly Phoenicians we have ever been. We have always aimed to do what we could for the glory of O. X. S. and in years to come, when we look hack upon our “dear old Phoenix." we hojx we shall still see its members winning honors for the Oshkosh Xormal School.

'riiere recently incurred in the Oshkosh Normal the two hundredth meeting of one of the foremost societies in the school. Philakean. From a despised “new society." she has won her way. slowly but surely, to the front, and now is the respected and honored peer of any society in the school.
1 ler memlxrship is composed wholly of young men. and is limited to thirty. Phila-kean is rarely crowded to the limit, therefore all men worthy of Incoming 1‘hilakeans have a chance to enter. Membership is granted as readily to a diligent and hard-working man as it is to the most brilliant and polished of scholars. When voting on names of candidates all members of the Society are urged to give their opinion as to the desirability of the applicant. As a result, the work of Philakean has not been surpassed by any other society. All members have proven themselves worthy of the honor granted them and have upheld the name of the Society in all phases of school life.
In athletics her men have always been prominent. In fact, if her members of the various teams had withdrawn, the playing cf the teams would have suffered beyond repair. In the oratorical contest, two of her members made an excellent showing. In debate the Society is very strong and she not only has arranged for debates with Lyceum and Phoenix, but she has two members on the Normal-Ilinois debating team and one on the Stevens Point team. Then last, but not least, of the contests into which the Society has entered is the declamatory contest with our sister society Alcthean. at whose hands defeat is almost as enjoyable as victory.
The work of Philakean at the regular meetings consists of talks, declamations, debates. and parliamentary practice. The debates and the parliamentary practice are especially good, and the man who can preside over Philakean without having his decision ap| caled from, at least once during the evening, has to Ik an adept in the use of “Roberts’ Rules of Order." Although the debates on the floor are somewhat heated at times and slight differences arise, all members, both honorary and active, are of one voice in singing.
“That you may understand. Sir:
We are a loyal band. Sir :
That lives throughout the Normal.
We shout. ‘Philakean !"

‘Tis the name of Methcan.
We praise and adore:
And as Time speeds his flight We love her the more.
Time, in his journey onward, did not leave Alethcans without many remembrances of this eventful year. Who of those concerned, or of others to whom the word is self-explanatory. does not recall with great joy. the ’’INITIATION" which took place on October 28. 1905.
The reception given to the new students and lady members of the Faculty, on Saturday evening, Septcmlwr 23, proved a thoro success.
The Alethean-Philakean Search Party on Hallowe'en has come to be the ‘‘rule" rather than the “exception." As usual, the Alethcans made themselves so “scarce" in the four blocks' territory in which they were allowed to hide, that the IMiilakean detectives. with all their search-lights, ladders (ad infinitum), and even attempted bribery of children of the locality, only found it possible to extricate one of the four groups.
On Saturday. November 25. the Philakeans paid the forfeit incurred by the Hallowe’en Search Party. This took the form of a delightful f o'clock dinner in the gymnasium. Alethean was there in her might.
With her colors red and white: at the Preliminary Oratorical Contest, and did its share in singing and yelling.
The (leneral Welfare Committee made a lengthy, intelligent, and very suggestive report of the “would-be's," “could-be’s." and “should-bc's" of Alethean Society, on Saturday evening. February 24. 1906. This was the first great document of this committee, but it really “made up for lost time." so to speak.
The re| ort on Psychological Sociology (so carefully tendered the Society by President Ilovee), with the explanatory supplement, was well understood and appreciated. Such rejjorts are very conducive to good order in the Society (or ought to lx?).
Many interesting and educational programs were given during the year, but since time nor space does not allow a lengthy description of any of these, the excellent quality of some of the flow'rv speeches given may be suggested by a few well-adapted phrases.— among the most used and oftenest.—“infantile pcrcositv." “unfaith." “happen-stance." “matrimonial advantage,” and others, which in the course of events have been alternately praised and censured.
This year's work has been especially good .and the sentiment of those who must leave the ranks of Alethean, is.—
Where’er we wander, Fast or West.
The name of Alethean we'll always love lx st;
And ever may the red and white
To honor and truth lx a beacon light.

Three years ago, the Philologian Society was organized with a limited membership of forty-eight. The first two years, the Society consisted of a mixed membership, but this fall it was reorganized and it became a girls’ society, with a limitation of thirty-two.
At the beginning of the year, the Society felt itself advanced enough to meet in the Intermediate room, but has since made its home in the Kindergarten, and if you chance to look in there on a Saturday evening, you will see many happy girls with intelligent faces, as they "overlook" "Roberts' Rules of Order."
Along with our literary programs we have studied the lives of several musicians, artists, and writers. Many of our number being able to sing and play, the Society has often enjoyed their music. Two very interesting programs consisted of “A Comparison of Modern. With That of a Century Ago." and readings from "Midsummer Night's Dream." preparing the girls to enjoy better the play to be given by the Seniors.
Some of the most pleasant evenings spent by the girls were those which had a festival as part of the entertainment: for good cheer and merriment go hand in hand with ice cream and cake.
On March 23. we took part in a declamatory contest with the Lyceum Society, By the decision of the judges the Philologian girls won the contest for the "purple and the white.”

They looked forward to the meetings with great pleasure, also to the Christmas time when at the Dresden we had a party. W e shall long remember the Santa Claus, the PfefFermucssc. kuehen. and Sauerhcrring.
In the dramatic line the work of the Society was at its height this year. When the Snow was yet on the ground, and long before Ostcrlag. the Germond plays were given.
No less a success were the declamatory contest and the annual l anquet given toward the end of the year.

'I'lie work of the Club this year has been comparative picture study after the plait of Coffin. Ilis method is. “Look on this picture ami on this." This does not mean to find which of two pictures or artists is the better. Each artist has a different life from bis fellows and as a result different thots, different emotions and different sympathies. Life appears to each in a manner peculiar to himself and he expresses it as he sees and feels it. Rembrandt has expressed the common homely features of the Dutch people about him. and is one of the most loved of jjortrait painters. Murillo, a Spanish artist of about the same period, has expressed the spirituality he has found in the faces of the pure and innocent. Coffin says. “As we discover more and more of the diverse ways in which artists have put a |x rtion of themselves, of their lives, into their pictures, our appreciation becomes indefinitely enlarged, our sympathies continually broadened, our enjoyment perpetually increased. Thus may we enter into the life of the artist and reinforce our own lives.”
Miss Magee arranged for the Club to study several beautiful and valuable etchings of the great masterpieces compared, which were greatly enjoyed by all. 'Hie work this year has been very instructive and of great personal value to each memlx r. I brilliant plans have l een laid for further work in the coming year.

Nineteen hundred and six marks the second year of the existence of the Current Topic Club. Tho its life has been short, it has not been an idle one. The original pur-Ix se of the Club has always l cen kept in view, namely, the discussion of present day problems, and application to life and their solutions. Of the advantages received by the members some are: First, the ability to distinguish Ix-tween a small incident written up with heavy head lines, and an incident of real importance. Second, a knowledge of present day (piestions and incidents of historical, scientific, and literary value. Third, the study of the lives of prominent men of to-day. In the discussion, the traits of character. which have raised the man above his fellows are decided upon. Fourth, it has been found that nearly every member was especially interested in some particular line of news. The Club recommended that its incmlxrrs devote themselves mainly to the particular phase of news in which they were interested. The Club docs not stand as a literary society in any way. its purj ose being simply to supply the need of a systematic study of current topics.

Conspicuous among the announcements which are heard from our rostrum is that f the meeting of the Shakespeare Study Club each fortnight. This Club was organized in September of 1904. for the purpose of studying Shakespearian dramas. Upon reorganizing in September of 1905 the membership was limited to fifteen. The attendance at the meetings have averaged about twelve. We have followed the plan of meeting at the homes of the various members, which has proved to be very enjoyable.
The work began this year with the study of "King I.ear.” under the direction of Miss Harden. The class has used syllabi made out for our special purpose and has found them a valuable assistance. The reading of "King Lear" by Professor Clark, of Chicago Cniversity. was thoroly enjoyed by the members, who embraced the opportunity to further acquaint themselves with the drama. The Club is now studying ".Mid-Summer Night's Dream." with much enthusiasm, and expect to take up "Othello" as a third and last drama for the year's work.

No society in our school is more deserving of support than the AihIuIxjii Society. It was organized by Professor Goddard under the auspices of the Nature Study Club, three years ago. The general purpose of the Society is two-fold. First, it offers an opjjortunity for a systematic study f the birds; second, it gives its memlKxs a chance for out-of-door recreation and at the same time profit, at a time when most needed.
Nature Study, and especially that of the birds, is becoming more and more a center of interest in our schools. Many of our students are availing themselves of the opjxir-tunity to co-operate with the Audubon Society in its work. The aim of the Society is to do as much work as |x ssible in the shortest time. The field trips are made on Saturday mornings. An excellent field glass has been purchased to aid in this field work.
Nothing will leave a more lasting remembrance than these pleasant Saturday morning trips.

No. I le is looking for his opera glass.

The Browning Club
The Firowning Club, organized for the purpose of dipping dce| cr into the works of the poet and getting nearer the thoughts of the man. has been holding its bi-weekly meetings at the home of Miss Peake.
Tho the Club is small in numbers—fifteen—its meetings have been none the less interesting and profitable. The Club has also l ecii studious, as the regular amount of work was completed earlier than usual. The first of the year some of the minor poems were studied : after that plays. Colombo's Birthday. The Wot on the Schutcon. and Lnria were taken up.
The meetings have been very enjoyable and every one got a great deal from them as every one had something to contribute. Xo doubt, the standard of the members has l een raised by the thoughts gained from the poet.

And idly left them on the shore.

Page eighty-oncAn organization which is relatively inconspicuous but which has made its good work and efforts lx th seen and felt is the Girls’ League.
This League, which has now two years to its credit, was organized for the pur-l ose of good housekeeping and to decorate the Senior and the Indies Studies. Every girl in the school and every woman of the Faculty is a ineinl er of this League by virtue of her attendance at school. Fach member of the League is pledged to do all in her jxnver to improve the condition of the rooms occupied by the girls and to help to keep them as neat and clean as jiossible.
To raise money for decorations this year the memlxrs of the League held a bazaar. The articles for this bazaar were made and donated by the girls and members of the Faculty. The proceeds of this bazaar netted $144 ). ()ne-fourth of this money was used for a picture. '‘Nymphs Dancing," by Corot, for the Senior Study. The other three-fourths were used for the 1-adies Study. With it were purchased two busts. Hera and Artemus. the statuettes. Athena and Aphrodite, and the two (Irail pictures.
I besides having been a financial success, the bazaar also proved a social success. Every one had a very enjoyable time and the spirit and enthusiasm in the preparations were general.
Judging from the successes of the past, the League bids fair to liecomc one of the most helpful organizations of the school.
The Public Speaking Club
The Public Speaking Club, under the direction of Miss Clark, met every Wednesday during the first semester for the purpose of studying masterpieces of oratory. 'Flic text-book used was that used by the public shaking classes of Chicago University. Three members represented the Club in the Oratorical Contest, one. Mr. Howlett. receiving first honors. The meml ers feel that they derived much profit from the work and wish to thank Miss Clark for her able instruction.
Page eighty-twoBoys Glee Club
The Boys' (iloo C lub was organized with several pur| oscs in view. One of these is to give the men of the school an opportunity to become acquainted with some of the best college songs, under the guidance of an instructor. Another is to help its members develop ability in part-singing. It is a deplorable fact that most men can carry nothing but the air of a song, thus depriving the song of the beautiful harmony produced bv the tenor and bass. The music sung by the Club has Ixicome most jxjpular among the students. It formed the basis for the songs written for the celebration of the Inter-Normal Oratorical Contest. The Club meets every Saturday night from 6:40 to 7:10. ()nc members characterizing the meetings, said. "They are just a half hour of solid enjoyment.'' All men who sing are welcomed.
Page eighty-threeMandolin Club.Mandolin Club
We here present to The Qi’IVKK readers the Mandolin Club, introduced as they frequently introduce themselves in the Intermezzo "College Life.” They have become so much a part of our Normal life that we would sound their praises in terms fortissimo. When the prophet of the 1905 Mandolin Club foretold the record brilliante the 1906 Club would make who, however, could have dreamed that not only would the Club bring all of these prophecies to pass, but even accomplish greater things?
A11 enumeration of their achievements would savor too much of a catalog since scarcely a week passed without their tilling an engagement or two. They not only played for nearly all school affairs but several times furnished music for church suppers. camp-fires, the Century, the Benevolent Association Home, the State Hospital, and the Normal Oratorical Contest at Milwaukee! This was the crowning event of the year. No one except the chosen few will ever know of the calloused fingers and anxious hours preceding this. But. not in vain! Oshkosh was justly proud not only of her orator and basketball teams, but also of her Mandolin Club. It scored one of the many successes for the white and gold that night.
But the Club has shown school spirit in a more substantial way than that of simply entertaining and representing us. In the Senior Study is a lasting memento of their love for ( )ld Normal.” After their concert early in the fall, they appropriated a part of the proceeds for the purchase of a cast of a lion's head ami a bust of Shakespeare. These occupy prominent places in the Senior Study, a daily reminder of the t lub.
Would that to us were given the power to prophesy as did last year's "Prophet of the Club." but since so many of the Club are going out to teach we have not a basis for a prediction, but we hope others may come and make another harmonious club, but we feel that never again can there Ik another such as the "Mandolin Club of 1906."
So a toast then to the Mandolin Club. May the diamond shajH-d pin never be mistaken to stand for Metlioc re Collection, but ever for Merited Credits. May their glory never diminuendo but Ik sung eon expressione, and mav their merits be told crescendo.

The ()ratorical Association is probably the most | otcnt factor for promoting the oratorical and debating interests of the school. I'nder its immediate supervision are two of the most important events of the school year—the oratorical contest and the debate with Xormal, Illinois.
()n February 10. the local oratorical contest was held. There were seven contestants. and the contest was one of an unusually high class order. The decision of the judges found more favor among the student body than a decision in such cases usually does. In every way the event was a most satisfactory and successful one. The contest held in Milwaukee is also a part of our history. The excursion and all necessary arrangements for attending the contest were in the hands of the local association and the success of the trip is in a large measure due to this fact.
The debate with Xormal, 111., aroused a great deal of interest at the lieginning of the vear. Xineteen students entered for the preliminaries. Because of so large a num-lier. two preliminary delxates were arranged for on successive evenings. 'Pile debates were held on September 28 and 29: but as the time drew near the contestants kept dropping out until there were only nine left. This was but a small number for two debates, but previous arrangements necessitated that the two debates be held as scheduled. The result was that five apj eared on the first debate and four on the second. Later this apparent lack of interest nearly led to dropping the debate with Xormal. A good team was selected, however, after a series of discouraging occurrences. This Inter-Xormal debate will Ik held here on May 18.
There are other events in this phase of school life that do not come under the auspices of the Oratorical Association. The most important of these is the annual Junior debate with Stevens Point. There was strong competition in the Junior class this year for places on the team. The preliminary held on Xovember 20. was one of the best ever held here. The team chosen was probably the strongest that the Junior class has ever had. Xo team has ever been better prepared when the date for the debate came. Consequently, when our Juniors met Stevens Point on April 20. they brought victory home with them.
Inter-society contests have come to l e a permanent feature in this line of activity. Debates have been arranged for between Lyceum and Philakean. Phoenix and Lyceum. Phoenix and Philakean. These will take place near the end of the school year—the debate between Phoenix and Lyceum occurring during Commencement week. The debates. however, do not seem to furnish enough work to keep the societies busy. Inter-society declamatory contests are coming to Ik- an established feature. The Alethcan-Philakean declamatory contest has been an annual event for five or six years. I or the past two years Lyceum and Philologian have had such a contest. This year Philakean won from Alethean and Philologian from Lyceum.
There is no other form of school activity in which so good an opportunity is given for development as these contests in oratory and debate. Not only do these contests afford the opportunity for obtaining valuable training and experience, they arouse enthusiasm and awaken society and school spirit: and the school is justly proud of what has been accomplished along this line during the past year.
Our 1906 Orators
Page cighty-eiglitThe Triumph of the White and Gold
St. Patrick’s day has been robl ed of a certain jxjrtion of its distinction by reason of an event which occurred March 6. 1906. Henceforward two great days instead of one will he celebrated in mid-March. Thru all the centuries that the good saint has enjoyed the honor of having his natal day commemorated, no event of sufficient importance has transpired in the world’s history, coincident with the 17th of March, to warrant a division of honors. Undoubtedly the good man never dreamed (how could he?) that in the far-off centuries an event would occur, so great, that even the driving out of the snakes could not surpass it. He that as it may, beside the shamrock will ever bloom a flower of victory, in color white and gold.
It all came about in the most natural way. Oshkosh had an orator, naturally, she was proud of this silver-tongued, modest, most worthy youth, so three hundred strong she set out one bright March morning to cheer him to victory. From the time that the "special” steamed out of the station at 9:15. March 16, till the dawn of St. Patrick’s day, when fifty or more of the loyal three hundred again set foot in Oshkosh, enthusiasm never flagged. 'Pile visit to the Cream City was full of interest to all. The visiting schools were most cordially received by Milwaukee, and nothing was left undone that might contribute to the comfort and pleasure of the guests. The )shkosh delegation. tho large, was undemonstrative. They smiled inwardly thru it all and only after two victories in basket-ball revealed the fact that ( . N. S. was really a prime factor in the meeting did the crowd appreciate the formidableness of the three hundred from the shores of W innebago.
It was an old. old story, how we carried home the scalps of our sister Normals and hung them on a weeping willow tree. The school of many laurels had one more added to her crown. Thruout the contest the most friendly spirit prevailed. Oshkosh and Milwaukee had the numbers, but Platteville and Whitewater had the “brass.” Each delegation had its inning for vocal effort and whatever else it had to display. Every one has heard, of course, how Veltc was late and of how our beloved instructor of music came to the rescue and heroically saved the day. At the signal from her uplifted hand three hundred voices sang out the war cry. "Oh. we are all of us Xormalites from good old ()shkosh town.” to let them know that we were there and not afraid. The seven orators were listened to with close attention. When the last sj eaker had finished we knew that the contest lay I ctween Whitewater. Platteville, and Oshkosh. So fine were these three that the audience was divided in its opinion as to the winner. Yet Oshkosh was confident for in the delivery of our orator we felt there was a finish and an appeal which the others lacked. The decision came: Third place. Whitewater: second place. Platteville. we knew the rest. With a shout Oshkosh rushed for her orator. Time, place, and conventionalities were forgotten in the knowledge that the white and gold had won. The yell mostly made up for lost time now. The story runs that he lost his voice. It was found by a policeman in North Milwaukee at four the next morning. The return trip was Ix-gun at 1:15 A. M. As we sped home thru the night, proud, happy, and just a hit sleepy after the day of excitement, all declared the memory of that day would linger as a bright sjjot in our school life.

Have you heard the last gossip? A true talc of love.
Of a gallant gray Squirrel and a meek little Dove?
I low both came to )shkosh. on school teaching bent.
And to get education to our Normal School went?
Well, the story’s no secret. As 1 have been told.
The Dove was demure, and the Squirrel was l oId.
He admired her beauty and maidenly grace:
She. his athletic build and his proud saucy face.
'Twasn’t long till lie knctc that she liked him the Ik sI ; That he loved her devoutly, she secretly guessed.
And to prove to the world—each industriously strove— That the other most surely was deepest in love.
Mow they’d linger and loiter the pathways along;
He would woo her with chatter: she win him with song: 1 low their Sundav-night courting a great havoc wrought In her heart—“She is mine.” the sly Squirrel thought.
At the window slic'd sit and soft glances throw.
While he practiced athletics on the campus below:
When the practice was over he would haste to her side— "I have him secure.” was her boast and her pride.
I Jut when school-days were ended, he sought as a wife A faithful gray Squirrel and wed her for life:
While she to a gallanter plighted her love.
And married at last a sincere turtle Dove.
Six little Krcshmen Went out to run.
Round track and round track.
()h. such fun.

The Athletic Association lias on the whole lx en very successful this year, Indcr its direction one of the lx?st football teams in the history of the school has been maintained. The team ranked high among the football teams of the state, having been defeated only bv Lawrence and North western (Watertown) I'Diversity.
The basketball team were champions of the state outside of the university, having defeated strong teams from I.awrencc (. Diversity and Kipon College. The girls also had a first class team, which closed the seas m without a single defeat, altho several strong teams were met during the season. At the time this publication g x‘s to press it is too early to predict the outcome of the track and field work, but much g xxl material is in the school and a successful season is looked forward to. The old drawback of former years.—the lack of funds.—has impeded the work somewhat, but the prospects are that the year will be closed without a deficit. The heavy debt incurred during the foot-Irdl season was largely cleared thru subscriptions, and the year of 1006-07 will in all probability lx begun u|X n a firm financial basis. The Faculty committee on athletics has ruled that hereafter all expenses must be paid in cash and in that way no debts will be incurred in the future.
The school has entered the city baseball league and it is very probable that a good record will lx made.
Tennis has always been very |x pular and a tournament will probably be held this year, as it has in the past.
On the whole we have every reason to be proud of the work of the association. It has made it possible for every one with any inclination toward athletic work to indulge in his favorite amusement—and all students must have some form of recreation. Let us hope that in the future still greater success will be met with than in the past, and no one will say that the )shkosh Normal School is a sluggard in athletic work.

The )shkosh Normal seldom lias had so good a football team as the one the past season. It is not easy work to take a squad of green men and develop from them a hot ball machine that is strong at all points .and yet that is what Coach Coolidge has done. The team that played the local High School in September was very different from the one that held Northwestern University down to 11 to 4 in November. The schedule was a hard one. yet no one shrank for an instant in any of the games. Two of the games turned out rather differently from what was expected—the game with )sh-kosli High School and the 1-awrence game. Both games were farces, as a comparison of scores will show. Oshkosh won the third place in the state, outside of the university. Lawrence getting first and Northwestern second place. On the whole, the team was well-balanced, but in playing were noticeably stronger on offensive work than in defensive, tho this fault was remedied to some extent as the season progressed, and in the end we had a team which was a worthy opponent for any team in the state. ()ur only regret is that we couldn't have played another game with Lawrence. So here's to the footall team, may its glory never darken, and may the succeeding teams always Ik-as much of an honor to the school.

No small part of the first team’s success was due to the persistent efforts of the squad of men known as the "second team.” "reserves," and "scrubs.1" Coaching may do much for a team, but some one to practice against will do much more. Theory must be combined with practice. And so the reserves should get their share of credit for the work of the past season. A schedule of games was arranged for them and the results are shown above. The only game in which we were defeated was the Lawrence game, where we were outweighed by thirty-five pounds to a man. our team only averaging about 135 jxnmds. Not only was the team light but the men seldom had an opportunity to get used to each other, inasmuch as the line-up was different in nearly every game, as men were constantly being called in to fill vacancies in the first team. lx t us give honor to the second team, as well as to the first, for their share in keeping the yellow and the white in the front.

Boys' Basketball TeamBasketball
The basketball season closed this year with the most successful record the school has ever had. having won the championship of schools and colleges in Wisconsin excepting the State University. A great deal of spirit, but a small amount of material marked the prospects for the beginning of the season. With but two men left from last year, the outlook was dubious till account of stock was taken. It was then found that Buckley, captain of the ‘04 team. Stoever. of the 03 squad, and Whitcomb and Moody, promising men of ’04. were to play.
Before football season had ended the Menasha Social Gub and Oconto Company M brought the team to their respective towns to show them how bad a slippery lloor was to the unsophisticated. However, if you think that the team felt verv badly, ask the "subs” who accompanied the boys to Menasha. This new and original system of choosing “subs” apjK ared quite enjoyable according to the fellows who went along, but will not do for the future use of teams of the sch«x»l. Following these two defeats came a most honorable one at the hands of the University of Wisconsin. The boys put up a stiff tight, and were ahead of the visitors during the latter part of the game, but could not get the ball away from their opjxments in the last five minutes to prevent several scores, four of which were awarded by the Wisconsin official. The last week of school saw another defeat from a Company team of Portage, which proved the last of the season for the Oshkosh team.
The new year started out with a decisive victory over ()conto on the home floor, and Manitowoc with a city team. On January 12 the boys set out on a memorable trip to Stevens Point and Grand Rapids. There were but two field baskets scored on them during both games, while they themselves tossed the hall in at will. The night was spent after the usual custom, the dance keeping the fellows out t xi late (or early) for their sleepy landlord, so in the cold grey of the morning after, a lodging elsewhere was found. Grand Rapids treated the Oshkosh representatives in its characteristic royal manner, so that Sunday morning saw a rather weary looking hunch on the platform. Here Bowen made a second ap|)earance before the public as a prestidigitator of high order.
The following week l iwrence very discourteously took a defeat from 11s. hut they never do accept such occurrences gracefully, anyway. A most interesting account appeared in their school publication to the effect that "such a game would not go on record." We wonder if the game played here on February 9. by that would-l)e university team, went on record—27 to 12 against them. We also hope they guard their keepsakes "manfully."
A11 account of the remainder of the season would he a mere repetition of recital of victories won from Ripon. Stevens Point (two games). Menasha Foresters. Menasha Social Club. Oshkosh Highs, and Milwaukee Normal. We were not to see Ripon play here as they expected to do, but an epidemic of scarlet fever saved them another defeat. The trip to that town made by our lx ys was of the usual nature, bordering on the hilarious. The sign. "Don't jolly the waitresses" had no effect—ask the shorts, the mediums, and the long ones, if it did. One fellow was marked, we have heard from there, by the long tear in his stiff hat. The school is anxious.
In general, the members of the squad who went to the various towns from Oshkosh to play, wish to thank those who gave them such excellent games and treatment. Also thanks are due to the several young men who acted as officials during the season, and withstood the hardships of the numerous trips.

Pdi c Otic hundred nineTrack Prospects in 1906
It was a serious question at the lxrginning of the season whether spring work would materialize. The Faculty committee on athletics took a decided stand against the usual Normal | olicy of running up debts and paying for them afterward, but the men of the school came forward and pledged enough money in advance to see the work thru, and thus the situation was saved.
During the spring vacation. Manager Kleinsclunit engineered a surprising innovation in Normal athletics. By hard work he secured from a number of our liberal merchants prizes to the value of seventy dollars to Ik given to the winners of the events in the inter-class meet. This has given a strong impetus to spring training and the campus has been daily thronged by those desirous of entering the lists for their respective classes. Dual meets have been arranged with Ripon College and St. John’s Military Academy with prospects for meets with Lawrence I'niversity and Stevens Point Normal.
By the time The Quiver is in your hands the season’s work will Ik a part of the history of the school. Let us hojH? that it will prove a memory of honorable effort from the athletes, loyal supjx rt from the school, and of victories nobly won.
Page one hundred tenTrack Athletics 1905
This branch of physical training seems to have taken a great movement upward and onward in the past two years. In the old days of Semi and (Ireen. the Oshkosh Normal was an op|x nent to Ik feared, but after they left, for a long time little was accomplished or attempted in the best of the individualistic forms of athletics. In 1905 much, was done to regain lost prestige. C onsiderable enthusiasm was aroused among the men of the school and a large number of them took part in the training and in the meets with fairly good results.
We lost to Lawrence, May 9. fx) to 35, but it was a green team against a team of veterans. Wisconsin, represented by two men from Ilatteville. two from Stevens Point, live from Milwaukee, and live from Oshkosh, was second in the Interstate Normal meet at Milwaukee. May 12. between the Iowa. Illinois, and Wisconsin Normals. The score stood : Iowa. "f : Wisconsin. 43: Illinois. tf . Of the 43 points for Wisconsm. Oshkosh won 17; Milwaukee, 13: Stevens Point. 6. and Plattevillc. 4.
The second annual inter-class meet for the I‘‘acuity banner was not a perfect success owing to its frequent |xx»tponings and consequent lack of enthusiasm, both among contestants and sup|K»rters in the various classes. Some very good work was done, however. I raw ley. '06. lowering the mile record from 4:95 to 4:58 . The championship banner was won by the class of 05. 08 being second with points.
Our best work was done at Ripon, on May 20. If our distance man had lx cn on hand, victory would doubtless have perched on our banners, and the following complete score shows it was a good meet anyway.
()n the whole. 1905 was a year of promise. A number of good athletes were developed. I Hack, in the dashes. Keefe in the hurdles ami jumps. Daane and Majerus in the weights. Jones in the jumps and dashes, and Prawlev in the distance events, were the best. With hard work ami enthusiasm to back it. in a few seasons more Oshkosh Normal ought to have as enviable a record in spring athletics as she has in other lines of sport.

J’oge one hundred elevenHockey and Baseball
A new line of activity was indulged in this year by the girls. The game of hockey was introduced by Miss Shepardson and was immediately caught up by the young women and made very popular. Two teams might Ik seen nightly at Combination Park playing the game which is so ()opular in the East. Xo outside games were arranged, however, since the girls were not well acquainted with the game. It is to ! e liopcd that the game will Ik taken up with renewed vigor next year and that the girls will participate even more generally than they did last year.
It has been a long time since Oshkosh Normal has had a Ixaseball team, hut this year an attempt has been made to organize one, and the Normal will Ik represented in the city league. There is much good material in the school and a good nine should result thru constant practice. Mr. Coolidge makes a good coach and under his direction the Normal nine should Ik the pennant winning team in the city league. The great drawback has been the lack of funds, and it is to Ik hojK d that next year when the baseball season comes around that there will Ik not even this to prevent us from Uing worthily represented in this phase of athletic work.
Thus far the following men have filled positions in school games:
Pitchers—Doyle, Daly. McDonald, Leister.
Catchers—Karnes. O’Harrow, King.
First Base—Martin. Daanc. King. Kell. Keefe.
Second Base—Leister. Richards, (1. Scanned.

W. C. HEWITT
You whose eyes are strong and bright. f anything remote or near— Illumined by the morning light: As you gird your harness on.
In whose hearts abides no fear Hear a word of simple song:
Put the Harness gladly on.
.hid wear it bravely through.
I Then there is dearth of loyal hearts Then comes the call to yon.
Hoasl not in the early hours, Put with the duty done, Perchance another shall arise. To praise the struggle won.
lint tho no word is ever said.
It still is nobly true.
. Ill else of pain will be forgot If the Vision smile on you.
To the goblet now you quaff. With a song, or with a laugh. Long before you drink it all. Needs must Ik the hitter gall. Cowards drop the cup and fly. Afraid to live, afraid to die;
Their cups are ignoble mold. Yours all of purest gold :
Baser metal has no ring,
Drink the last drop like a king. Hold the goblet firm and strong. Hearing clear this word of song:
IVhen wounded, prone upon the field.
Close at your side shall stand The I 'ision with the steady eyes.
And healing in its hand.
There is a smile of ouhoard things— ..
Of wave and rising sun—
Hut not such as the soul receives When the Vision says. “Well done."
I,ove and life were made for you.
I karts are light, and skies are blue: Rose-lined now the path you tread: But when thorns spring up instead: And but night and rock remain: Weary with the battle-strain.
In the contest that you wage.
You do prove your heritage.
Cowards quit along the way.
Cringe or sleep while it is day: Whimper at the gathering night. Dastards they to stand or fight.
Tread the last mile—night and thorn. With the courage of the morn.
When the road is dark and long I lear this simple word of song:
. hid this shall be of recompense Enough, what ere betide.
That you have borne the Harness well. With the Vision at your side.
Page one hundred sixteenWith Apologies to Patrick Henry
Fellow students, it is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. W e are apt to shut our eyes against painful truth, and listen to the song of the siren Spring, till she transforms us into idlers and dreamers. Is this the part of wise students, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for higher education?
Are we dis| osed to be of the number of those who. having eyes, see not. and having ears, hear not. the signs which tell of the near approach of the final examination? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost. I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided and that is a kerosene lamp. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past, and judging by the past. I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the Faculty for the last ten years, to justify the hope that this year we may escaj e the accustomed period of torture.
Are tests and oral quizzes necessary to the work of education? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be enlightened, that force must Ik called in to win back our love of learning? Let us not deceive ourselves. These are the implements of war and subjugation, the last arguments to which the Faculty resort. I ask. fellow students, what means this martial array of reviews, quizzes, and oral tests if its purpose be not to force us to examination? Has the Faculty any enemy in this quarter of the world? No. they have none. They are meant for us: they can Ik meant for no other.
And what have we to opj ose them? Shall we try argument ? We have been trying that for the past ten years. Have w« anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable, but it has all been in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find that we have not already exhausted? Our petitions arc slighted, our remonstrances outproduce more difficult, longer questions, and more of them, our supplications arc disregarded. and should we implore the President to intercede for us. we should be spurned from his office. There is no longer any room for hope.
If we wish to graduate, if we mean to preserve inviolate the right to teach the young idea how to shoot, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our efforts (a diploma), shall lx obtained—we must write. I repeat it. fellow students, we must write.
You say that we are weak, unable to stand so stiff an examination. I hit when shall we be stronger? Will it lx next week or next quarter? Will it lx when a member of the Faculty is stationed in every house to see that we s|x nd the required hour and a half on every branch? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the knowledge whereby we may gloriously pass, by lying supinely on our backs anti hugging the delusive phantom of hope? We are not weak if we make a proper use of the means which a kind providence has placed in our power. We shall not fight our battles alone. There are publishing houses who preside over the destinies of students. who have raised up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle is not to the strong alone; it is to the bluffer, the crammer .and the cribber.
There is no retreat but in ignominious failure. The examination is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat it. let it come! The next sound that greets our ears wild lx the scratching of an army of pens. Our brethren are already in the field. Why stand we here idle? What is it students wish? What is it they would have? Is life so dear or peace so sweet, as to lx purchased at the price of a flunk? Forbid it, O ve shades of Minerva! I know not what course others may take; but. as for me. give me 75 or give nu death!
Page one hundred seventeenCherubim and Seraphim
()nce when I was sweetly dreaming Came an angel fair to me.
And he said, in accents winning. “Mortal, would’st thou wish to see
In the radiant realms of glory.
Where the light is never dim.
Dwelling in celestial In-anty Cherubim and Seraphim ?"
Gladly then I rose and followed Where he led with shining light.
There around the throne of glory Was a hand of angels bright.
"These," he said, "were thy instructors. Now they’ve laid life’s burdens down.
Scest thou that radiant figure.
(ileaming gems adorn his crown ?"
He was known as Rufus Halsey.
Now with harp attuned in hand.
He with music fills high Heaven As he leads the angel band.
Faithfully on earth he labored,
To attain his high ideals:
Now is he supremely happy,
I ’erfect joy is all he feels
As he meets among the ransomed Many he has helped to rise.
Helped to make them heirs of glory,
Fit for mansions in the skies.
Then I recognized another
Strolling on the streets of gold.
I loth his hands were in his pockets As they were in days of old.
Now the angels are “reflecting."
Talking "theory" one and all.
“Oh." they say. “there’s none in Heaven Half so learned as Maurice Small.”
( ne more saint has joined the “circle”
Of the hallelujah band.
To play upon a “triangle"
Or "chord" with harp so grand.
He is busv drawing prisms Over all the jasjn-r walls:
And adorned with "lines" and "circles" Are the courts and streets and halls: ( n all sides we see his figures.
Now no saint can walk the street Ilut he steps on "equal angles"
F very where he puts his feet.
Yes. the very thrones of glory
Are all stained with Hewitt’s marks. ()n the pearly gate is written.
"Chords subtended equal arcs.”
“Angels’ ways are so old-fashioned.
(iabriel should new methods know: Hand me that trumpet,” Mitchell said. '77 show you how to blow."
The golden gate was opened wide 'Po let Augustus through,
"That’s wide enough." Augustus said. "Yes. Peter, that will do."
Henry Goddard is in Heaven.
(lone to have some rest at last:
All his days of patient toiling
Now are numbered with the past.
No accounts for him to straighten In the land beyond the skies.
And he spends his time in Heaven. Watching birds of paradise.
Gabriel put down his trum| et Just as he began to blow.
Calling. “Hurry there, St. Peter.
Here comes one that we don’t know. We must wait and see his record And what passport he can show.” Widely swung the golden portal When he said. “My name is Clow : Since I can not blow a trumpet I have brought with me a plan To improve the golden city—
Make it better if I can.
Now this plan is for a mansion In the city of the blest.
Where all students will Ik- welcome And all | edagogues at rest.
Page one hundred eighteenAny angel having leisure
May find work upon its wall, lie’ll Ik- paid in ‘standard money.'
‘Purest gold’ for one and all.
For Herr Dresden's rest and comfort.
An apartment I have planned Where lie’ll sing with joy eternal ()f the Happy ‘Fatherland’."
Suddenly a swelling anthem Made the very arches ring.
“That’s a new man here." said Gabriel. “He is known as ‘Seraph Fling’.’’
"Now." says I-cistcr. Karnes and Volte, (Surely Daane says the same)
"We must try to go to Heaven Just to sec our coach again."
"Ah." says Richards. Kell, and Moody.
"We must reach the blissful shore." "Yes.” says Birdsall. Pit ., and Whitcomb.
"We’ll Ik- there with many more."
’T elman, at the golden portal,
IX) you think they’ll let you thru?"
"()h. yes. King. I must see Coolidgc.
I’ll get in. and Buckley, too.”
Now Sage showed the greatest forethought ,r’££s wear.v ol t ,c sp ndor When Ik- left the world of sin: 1,1 tl,e tcmPlc of tl,c skies-
He brought all his lnwks on physics And his precious violin.
( hice in )shkosh were some fogies.
Who quite oft were heard to say. That they feared the youngest teacher Walked not in the narrow way.
That instead of reading Scripture
Learning psalms, and singing hymns. He was out ujxm the campus
Training boys to "break their limbs.” But the angels called in chorus In the mansions of the blest.
"Open wide those gates for Coolidgc— He’s as welcome as the rest.”
In his crown the stars will glitter.
Shining brighter than the sun.
And these stars so brightly gleaming Once were football games he won.
He is longing for his office,
And looks down with tearful eyes. "I’m so tired of vacation,
Twanging harps is not my line. How I’d welcome bills to audit Or a few receipts to sign.
And the singing d K s not suit me.
Angels say it is divine,
But the voice of Keefe or Stocvcr. Suits me better every time.
Near me was a dreadful tumult And I wondered why that sound. Then I saw a patient martyr.
That the angels gathered round.
1 lere’s a crown to Ik cemented.
Will you please repair my throne?" "Make a model for this trumpet”— Rest for Summers was unknown.
There is a small Junior named Kitty.
Who thinks she’s decidedly witty.
She- breaks every rule Of our dear Normal School Because the 1k vs say that she’s pretty.
There is a young lady named Frances, Whose heart is expressed in her glances; Handsome and tall.
Belov’ed by all.
Is this quiet young Senior named Frances. There is a young Senior named Mayme, Who's desirous of winning great fayme.
If she’s not in The Oliver,
She’ll visit the river.
To hide her great sorrow and shayme.
Page one hundred nineteenI. Clarissa Rockefeller Smith, of Oshkosh, in the County of Winnebago, and State of Wisconsin, being of sound mind and memory, and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life, do therefore make, ordain, publish, and declare this to he my last Will and Testament:
L'irst, I order and direct that my executor hereinafter named pay all my just debts and funeral expenses as soon after mv decease as conveniently may be.
Second, after the payment of such funeral expenses and debts. I give and bequeath to the Oshkosh Normal Scliool one million of dollars, to Ik used as herein stated.
To the Honorable Board of Regents I bequeath a Manual Training Department, which is to Ik situated beneath the canopy of heaven and surrounded on all sides by a high fence decorated with two coats of lilv whitewash. To every member of this Honorable Board. I do ordain the title of Governor. To each one I also bequeath a gavel of pure steel, weighing not less than twenty-five pounds.
The handle of the gavel shall he of second growth hickory. To all of these "Governors" I do further bequeath a table of stone to preside over, and 1 also decree that for each successive hours each day each Governor shall wield his gavel with might and main until an artistic building stone lie before him.
I decree that a beautiful home Ik built on Algoma Street, wherein any member of the Faculty, of whom it may Ik said. "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." may reside. Said member’s salary shall Ik continued while life lasts.
To the students of Oshkosh Normal School I bequeath a Club House, to Ik built on New York Avenue, where meals shall be served at the following hours: 6:00-6:15 A. M.. 12:00-12:30 M.. 6:00-6:10 I . M. Any student who does not leave the table within the ap|X intcd time shall be expelled. This custom will aid the students in forming "Habits of Hustling." the chief aim of Normal Schools.
I also decree that one room of the Normal Building Ik set aside as the office of a Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company. The Company shall Ik made up of members of the Faculty, ex-officio. On entering the school every student shall take out a policy for one thousand dollars, with an annual premium of one dollar. The face of the | olicy shall Ik divided equally among those members of the Faculty under whom said student was pursuing branches of learning, prior to his death.
I do further decree that a thousand dollars be invested in real estate, the income from which is to Ik called an "Emergency Fund," and is to Ik used for medical attendance. surgery, etcetera, during the football season.
Knowing as I do the undignified rush Normal students make at meal hours toward the various Club Houses in the city and knowing that said rush causes them to fall into that dreadful habit known as “The Normal Gait.” I do further decree that automobiles Ik provided to carry the students to and from the Club House on New York Avenue, heretofore mentioned.
To break a bad habit which the memlxjrs of the Council of the Self-Government System have, who are often seen sliding down the banisters, I request that five elevators be placed in the Normal Building.
Lastly, I make, constitute and appoint President R. H. Halsey to Ik Executor of this, my last Will and Testament, hereby revoking all former wills made by me.
In witness whereof. I have hereunto subscribed my name, the eleventh day of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and six.
Clarissa Rockefeller Smith.
Page one hundred KeenlyThe Doves’ Spelling Class
As the 11 :o5 gong struck there was “a whir of wing on wing.” A small Hock of doves had settled down on the roof of the Latin room. They cooed happily and looked lovingly at each other. More fluttering of wings on the air and more doves t x k up their places on the roof. They kept on coming until there were a score in the group.
Suddenly a hush fell upon the chatterers. The cooing ceased, and all looked ex-l ectantly toward the r x f of the new addition. A large gray pigeon with brilliant purple and soft green plumage lighted on the roof and with stately strut and scholarly mien went over to the front of the group now lined up in an orderly row on the roof.
The professor of the Dove’s Spelling class smoothed his wings, straightened up. and called the roll by giving a sharp peck on the tin roof for every absentee.
Then he ctxxrd in a rich throaty tone. “We shall have an oral review this morning. We shall lx gin with Mr. I’urpleneck and go around the class. Each one may si cll and define the word given him.”
"l;irst. patience.” "p-a-t-i-e-n-c-e." spelled Mr. I’urpleneck, a quality coveted by many, necessarily developed to a high degree in teachers.” "Auditorium, next. "A-u-d-j-t-o-r-i-u-m. a large room where many people sit and sing of song birds and spring and where much sage advice is given.”
"Can you tell us something more alxmt it?" asked the professor, of a small white pigeon. "Boys study there and stare at girls who walk thru with scared red faces.” "Miss Coola, rhetoric," "r-h-e-t-o-r-i-c, the art of communication; figuratively speaking, a high mountain, topped by a shining star, which guides us safely along alluring paths of fine English."
"Next, Study.” "S-t-u-d-y, a large dark room, inhabited by Creek goddesses and their maidens and much frequented at noon and night by followers of the Grecian gods.”
"Dinner." said the professor, nodding his head to a beautiful gray and brown dove. Next in line. "D-i-n-n-c-r." sjx-lled the student as the closing lx-11 rang, the end of the 11 :o5 period.
" ‘Tis for us.” c xx d the teacher.
Our Hilda comes again ()ur hungry coos to please And scatter crumbs and golden grain Among the maple trees.
The class is dismissed.” —Prom Our Primer.
This is THE QUIVER STAFF.
Why is it called a staff?
Because the Juniors depend on it to help them ascend the mountain of success.
Page one Iw ml red tocenty-oneSenior Victory
By the shining big sea-water.
By the shining Winnebago,
In the land of ancient Oshkosh.
In that famous Normal City.
()nce a tril e of Seniors sprouted. Seniors of great worth and valor:
But their boldness was undaunted. When they saw their Teachers sitting. Tall and stately on the rostrum.
So among themselves they plotted To obtain great lasting glory.
They would overcome those Teachers. Bring them down to Senior level.
So one morning at eight-forty.
During morning exercises,
Senior youths brought in a basket— Twas no common, oft seen basket.
But a mounted bushel basket—
With the Senior colors covered.
Then from out this wondrous basket. Was a roll of paper lifted.
With a small ball hanging from it.
To the President it was given.
He. with calm and long-tried patience. Slow unrolled the lengthy parchment. Read the contents to his audience. ‘Twas a challenge from the Seniors To the worthy Faculty.
“In basketball we wish to meet you. See what you arc really good for."
So the challenge was extended.
And some rules were stated therein. Thus one read, "Two minutes only Shall be given for a teacher To come back to earth again After jumping for the ball:
If by that time lie's not with us To a substitute his place goes."
Many were the rules of this kind.
Soon thereafter did the Teachers (live an answer to this challenge.
Wise and learned were the phrases I’scd in rcs|H»nse to the paper:
And it stated that the Teachers.
To give pleasure to the Seniors.
Would then condescend to show them How to plav a real live game.
Page one hundred twenty-twoThis the motto of the Teachers,
Which began and closed their answer, "Whom the gods destroy, they first make
"I'was upon a Friday evening That this game was fierce contested. And the Seniors broke the record With the score that there was made, Played the Faculty most worthy.
Hut the basketball did favor Only Seniors in its actions.
Did the Faculty attempt to catch it, 'Way across the gym they'd find it. And in Senior hands it would he. Almost ready for the basket.
Can it be that Seniors bribed it. Hrilied that hall to play unfairly.
And to favor only their side.
'When 'twas tossed up for the basket ? That's a thing no one can answer.
And the ball keeps ever silent.
Xot a secret will it tell.
Hut it certainly looked suspicious When the score had been decided. Fourteen points for Faculty,
Fight and twenty for the Seniors.
And in truth it has been murmured “ 'Twas the best game of the season." And to celebrate the victory )f the Seniors o'er the Teachers.
()n a Thursday from the rostrum. During morning exercises.
Secrets of the Faculty meetings Were revealed unto the public.
( nly Seniors impersonating Members of the Faculty.
Hut of this auspicious event.
()ther bards have sung to you.
From Our Primer
This man has a big “stick.”
Who is this man and why has he a "stick" ? This man is President Halsey and he has a "stick” to correct the errors in the "weighs" of Mental Arithmetic.
Page one hundred twenty-threeThat Lesson
The lessons began in the morning.
And steadily all the day 1 lad been growing harder and harder.
Until I could not see my way.
Every teacher assigning a lesson.
Gave a task too hard to get.
And my heart was growing leaden O'er the places too hard to Ik met.
I went to the Rhetoric class room.
And quietly took my place,
Wondering what was coming,
As I scanned the teacher’s face.
Softly spoke our stately teacher
Saying. “Now for to-morrow's task.
You may write whatever you wish to—
Just so it contains all I ask. ’
1 thought of the time last semester When we wrote in fanciful way,
I low I racked my brain for hours For something wise to say.
I remembered the gradual patience That came as I labored long.
1 lour by hour, morning and evening.
Until I'd written mv song.
Again I looked at the teacher,
And wondered and wondered why She held for us such high ideals.
And then I breathed a sigh.
()ncc more came her voice in low accents.
“The theme that to-morrow you write Must lx delightfully alluring.
Or else 1 must call it trite."
Then with rare,sweet smile she dismissed us.
And I. understanding it all.
Thought of how she’d lx very gracious.
And forgive us if we should fail.
Page one hundred twenty-fourA Normal I oast
I low often, oil, how often
In the tlavs that are gone by,
Have 1 dreamed of the dear old Normal,
And dreaming stopped to sigh.
I can see the students weary.
Who passed through its gloomy door,
And think of the teachers cheery:
Who marked them seventy-four.
And smile when I remember The old Assembly Hall.
The Ladies Study dark and dim.
Where Cupid’s arrows used to fall.
The seats of the high and mighty.
From whence the Faculty beamed,
Were filled by the kindliest people.
Who were much more kind than they seemed.
So here's to the dear old Normal,
And the days that used to be:
Here’s to the verdant Freshman.
And Sophomores loyal, to thee.
Here’s to the wise young Juniors Who never expect to fail.
And here’s to the “know-it-all” Seniors As into Life’s Sea they sail.
Vet may we ever cherish Our Mater harsh but true.
And may its work ne'er perish.
And its students remain true blue.
1 see some boys.
The boys are in a hall.
The boys are hauling on their coats.
Why do the boys haul on their coats in the hall ?
Because they are “froze out.
Page one hundred twenty-treeStudents in the Hall
Have you seen the students passing in the halls?
In the halls?
1'he Normal students passing in the halls?
When the gong was loudly ringing.
1 happy news to many bringing,
But to others doleful singing.
In the halls.
Did you ever speak to students in the halls?
In the halls?
Have a sly reporter watching in the halls?
Then receive a dainty paper,
Telling of the naughty caper ?
Could you vanish into vapor!
In the halls.
Have you ever walked with students in the halls?
In the halls? liver slowly passed with students in the halls? Ever send a glance so tender.
To a fairy form so slender.
And then try to remember
You were in the halls?
If you have not. then you know not in the halls,
In the halls.
Half the pleasure, half the beauty of the halls.
No sweet sighs so dear, so tender.
Did 1 ever dare to send her.
As those which I remember In the halls.
Long ago the students passing in the halls.
In the halls.
Did the self-same memories cherish in the halls. And to-day the students merry,
Pass each other smiling cheery.
And it does not seem so dreary In the halls.
(Written in the i :y recitation period.) Now I sit me down to sleep.
1 hope mv cluim full notes will keep.
I f 1 should snore before I wake.
Do pinch my hand, for pity's sake!
Page one hundred twenty-sixRhetoricals
Rhetoricals were full in blast.
When through the hall he chanced to pass. “Why do you loiter?" teacher said;
He ansewred low and shook his head.
Sorrowfully the room he entered in.
For essays almost finished him.
And declamations vext his soul.
And made him feel forlorn and dole.
Rhetoricals! t’pon the rostrum saw them stand.
With shaking knee and trembling hand. “P.ut needless." all their comrades said. "For never listen we to what is read."
“() dear." he heard his neighbor say.
"Will they ever finish here to-day?
I 've had my nap and long to walk.
And why this long eternal talk?"
() Faculty, just have some pluck.
And rid us from this awful luck. Remember you were once in youth And would relxd at this in truth. Rhctoricals!
Song of Freshmen
Sing a song of Freshmen—
Making goo-goo eyes;
Oh. how many silly things
Their verdant minds devise! When the school was opened.
They all began to sing:
"Oh. isn’t this a peachy snap?
We know we’re just the thing!”
Song of Seniors
Sing a song of Seniors—

They all began to sing:
"We’re aiming towards the laurel wreaths. We’ll carry home next spring.”

Advance StaffNormal Advance
The Xorntal Advance has just completed the twelfth year of its existence as a recorder of Normal school life and items of interest to the student body wherever found. Twelve years ago the first copy was sent out. and for three years The Xorntal . Idvance was edited under the auspices of the Faculty of the Normal School. At the end of that time it was given over to the management of the students and has since been edited under the direction of a Board of Directors composed of students chosen from the members of each class as representatives of that class. The Board chooses the Editor-in-Chief and Business Manager; the Editor, with the'eonsent of the Board, appoints his assistants.
The various members of the editorial staff this year have endeavored to keep the paper up to its former standard of excellence in every department. Xorntal Advance has lx;cn their watchword thruout the year, and tho at times, thru stress of circumstances. The Advance may have presented the striking paradox of being abnormal, even when entirely normal, yet have they been glad that its readers have been:
To its virtues ever kind.
To its faults a little blind.

L( . it came to pass in those days that the Chancellor made proclamation to his chiefs
that he was about to abdicate.
2 And give unto his subjects the free self-government for which they had
made long and diligent petition.
3 And lie sent messengers abroad in the realm to the clear regions of C.cometry. to the temperate zone of Literature, and even unto the tropical region of I hemistry.
Page one hundred thirty4 And they did sound trumpets and cry unto the people.
5 “Hear ye! Hear ye! Hear ye! The Great Chancellor hath summoned thee to a conclave in the tabernacle.”
6 And, lo, from near and far there came pilgrims to hear the word of the Chancellor.
" And 1 ehold. in the multitude were seen Mary of the clan of McFaddcn and I . Mack of das geschlecht of Dresden coming t« the council.
8 Then the Chancellor stood before the people and spoke unto them, saying:
9 Verily, the time hath come when it is meet that we. the Great Council, delegate to thee the |K»wer of government.
10 Henceforth, thou shah he rulers of thyselves and judges of thy neighbors.
11 Then spake he of the Stamm of Dresden unto them; saying:
12 I’pon this parchment have I engraven the new commandments:
13 And he did read in a loud voice the law which gave unto each the right to he a law unto himself and a guardian unto his neighbor.
14 And he spake further, saying:
And there shall he chosen from each tribe two justices, one man and one maid, from the tribe of Seniors two. from the trilie of Juniors two, from the tril e of Freshmen two. but no children shall sit in this tribunal.
15 Xor shall any sit in council who shall not have dwelt long in the land.
16 Nor shall any sit therein who shall have lx en convicted by a previous tribunal.
17 And this court hath jurisdiction over the erring from the ranks of the whole school and shall Ik no respecter of persons,
18 And the verdant Freshman, and the guileless Sophomore, and the confident Junior and the pufTed-up Senior shall he judged righteously together with the high and mighty Faculty.
19 And, lo. as he spake a hush fell upon the assembly and continued for many years.
20 And they disjKTsed in silence and went their ways and each man trusted his neighbor.
21 And the Council sat and had no offenders to judge against.
22 And it came to pass after many years that a new tril)c came to dwell in the realm and the ancient kings were afar in the world doing whatsoever they might for their own glorification.
23 And the new tribe knew not of the spell of the hushed assembly and they did grievously err in their ways and did speak aloud in the corridors.
24 And the new Prophet arose and spoke unto the people, saying:
25 Oh, ye. who go alx ut disturbing the peace of thy neighbors!
26 It is meet that they who desire peace and quiet have the desire of their hearts.
27 Therefore, for the sake of the few who disturb, we the peace-loving and silent shall submit to Ik governed by the reporters who shall guard the peace of the study room and the tranquility of the passage ways:
28 Ye, therefore, who are not disturbers of the jK ace shall submit to surveillance for the sake of subduing those who do annoy,
Page one It 11 ml red thirty-one29 And a great fear fell upon the people lest each one lx called by his neighbor a destroyer of jx-ace.
And with a loud voice they all cried. We will have reporters!
30 And. so it came to pass that thruout every hour of the day. reporters guard the peace of the study rooms, and patrol the corridors even unto the basement and east entrance.
31 And if a member of a tribe speaketh in a loud voice to another member of his trilx . or if a memlier of one tril c speaketh in a loud voice to any member of another trilx . or if a member of a trilx? addresseth one of the Chiefs of the Faculty, his name shall lx- written upon a white slip and given unto the offender as a warning against future transgressions of the law.
32 L'nless the President of the Self-Government System or the reporter witnessing thereof shall think within his heart. Verily he is a good fellow, and talketh of business which is legitimate.
33 And if a transgressor receive three white slips he shall Ik sent unto the chambers of the Council, which shall pass judgment upon him.
34 And many passed before them in judgment and were sentenced to solitary confinement and hard lalxir in the library.
35 And again the trilx- dwelt in peace together and waxed strong.
36 And it came to pass after many years that new territory was annexed and the Amazons of the tribe of Seniors dwelt therein.
37 And they were a law unto themselves.
38 And. lo, one day a clamor arose among the other tribes, saying: Heboid, we
have not the same privileges of anarchy and freedom of speech.
39 And in their infancy they reasoned not that if they cut off the privileges from those who now dwelt in the land of the Amazons, they also must submit to be governed thereby when Time should have effaced the distance thru the Great Hall.
40 And the High Chancellor said. Verily, ye have just cause for wrath and he lay the matter lx fore the tribe of Seniors.
41 And they, being of just mind and revolving in their hearts the fact that the tribes who sought to compel the Seniors to bow must in time come beneath the yoke thus fashioned, answered, saying:
Vea. verily, the law shall lx uniform thruout the kingdom. Send unto us reporters.
43 And so reporters came unto them and peace and quiet reigned in the kingdom and unrest in the land of the Amazons.
44 For the hearts of the Seniors were wroth over the slight put upon their dignity.
45 And it came to pass after the feast of turkey, that a new Prophet arose, saying:
46 Verily, we have no control over the morning conclave, the High Chancellor with his retinue hath charge hereof,
47 And since it is written, unto him who hath more shall lx- given, we would have all control. ALL.
48 And the Prophet arose saying. Thou shalt lx- subject unto our svstern. in the large ball of this Tabernacle.
49 And straightway there arose a murmur among the trilx of Seniors saying, Verily, the rule should be uniform thruout the realm. This doctrine we shall not violate even in the letter of the law.
Page one hundred thirty-two50 And when the Prophet awaited for the approval of the assemblage, the Oracle of the Amazons arose and said Nay. in a loud voice and a long discourse.
51 And many more Amazons of the lower tril cs stood silently with her. tho the many kept silence and rose not tho their hearts beat loud and rose high in the approval of her sayings.
52 And. verily, the conclave accepted not the words of the Prophet.
53 Then, went the Oracle to the Prophet secretly, saying. Strike out the words, in the Great Hall of the Tabernacle, and we of the tribe of Seniors will say, Ay! Ay! to thy law.
54 Ihit the Prophet, thinking to deceive the Amazons, again read unto the assemblage the law as he had first engraven it.
55 And then the Oracle rose and cried aloud, and the words were stricken from the scroll liefore the whole multitude.
56 And. a prophet from the tribe of Sophomores rose and sought a new concession and the multitude said, Av. ay.
57 And the heart of the Prophet was wroth within him and he said in his heart. Verily, if my law is not law. no other’s law shall be.
58 And the control of the morning conclave remained in the hands of the High Chancellor and his retinue.
59 And. so it came to pass that the Prophet saith in his heart. Verily. 1 will scourge my people for their rebellious spirit toward my law.
60 So. he arose and stretched forth his finger in accusation, saying: Verily. Ik ye therefore obedient or pass before the judgment of the Council.
f»t And the hearts of the people were wroth for they sought self-government, not a monarchical dictatorship.
f»2 And they obeyed not the spirit of the law with cheerful hearts.
63 And. so it is that wheresoever there are met together two or more tril esmen there is also the man with the white slip.
64 And the chambers of the Council are full and rebellion is abroad in the land.
65 And the Oracle of the Senior Amazons saith. Lo. take heed ye upon whom shall fall the mantle of the Prophet.
V For the success in governing lieth in endearing thyself to the hearts of thy

Page one hundred thirty-sevenThe Bats in Milwaukee
Oh, the trials, oh, the struggles.
That the "Mats" went thru,
When they came to that fair city, l.ist! I'll tell them unto you.
Deserted by their chaperone,
(Who went to visit schools).
“Alone, alone, all. all alone,”
They heeded not the rules.
Twas their first taste of city life.
And tho they had been taught,
To l»ctray no sign of greenness,
This training counted naught.
They found the Pfister Hotel all right.
Hut went to the men's waiting room.
Asked the price of lodging for the night.
On learning, they vanished soon.
One thing these hats did really know.
That baggage they need not carry;
So they checked their bags at Chapman’s store. And straightway they made merry.
Alas, at six the store was closed.
I ought not them betray,
Hut as their bags were left behind—
At night,—well. I won’t say.
Now all had a desire great,
To get them out of town;
Hut—oh. such was their direful fate,
They could not come back home.
One bat in her excitement Had spread her wings too far.
And dropped ail of their tickets.
From out a morning car.
Thiy ne'er had on a street car ridden.
And they found it such a lark.
They forgot their destination.
And walked back in the dark (12 blocks).
One bat caught her fool in a street car track.
And it was of such size (the track?)
Ten cars had to wait, while her shoe she took off. And with pickaxes. jMtlicemen pried.
Hut the worst of all has not l cen told.
(So don’t breathe a word, I pray).
They Imrrowed money to get back home.
When night had turned to day.

But Lydon B.

In thet sjK akiu' contest they had last year. From each society a orator did appear.
Each bein' certain to the first place he was nigh. That fur a time, ciety spirit ran ruthcr high. And Lydon B.

“'Hie Aletheans fur me!”
Each society came in bright colors arrayed.
But, oh, the dredful noise they made!
Twas worse than in Chicago A visitin’ the Board of Trade,
And Lydon B.
He says sezs he,
“This is too much fur me!”
The order of the evening seemed to be “buttin’ in." Each society bein' so sure its orator would win,
And only one society in all thet noisy lot.
Showed thet their social culture wasn't entirely forgot. And Lydon B.
He says sezs he,
“The Aletheans that must he!"
Now Lydon’s eyes with work are weak.
(Of such personal matters I shouldn't speak)
But thet’s why he made such a dredful error.

And so poor, deluded Lydon B.

Page one hundred thirty-nineA Slight Misunderstanding
The janitor, as he passed up the main corridor to arrange the rostrum chairs for morning exercises on the morning of February 15. heard a lively altercation which seemed to come from the Ladies Study. Me paused and this is what he heard:
"How did you Ixns ever find out that we were going?”
“You girls felt so good over it that you couldn’t keep it to yourselves. You thought that you would go out to the Hall and have a g x d time and then tell how slow the boys were."
"W ell, you lx vs were slow in more than one sense of the word. I didn’t notice this morning that any of you were exhausted from over rapid movements or from
Page one hundred fortydancing. In fact your dancing was so slow that wc couldn’t see you move; but then perhaps we couldn’t see everything that went on.”
"May Ik the boys were slow: but they were fast enough to get to the Hall, half an hour before the girls. As for dancing, none of the lx vs would have danced if the girls had begged them on bended knee. The Ixns merely wished to learn the proper manner of conducting a fair one to a dance.”
"Oh! Indeed! Well, 1 hope you learned. It takes girls to teach boys any day; but you needn’t have looked so glum and disheartened about taking your lesson. Wc felt sorry for you, of course: but then you know we had plenty of imitation lx ys ourselves.”
“You’re right! We learned our lesson well. Our glum looks resulted from the realization that wc could never put our lesson into practice, for if we tried to practice one-half of what we learned. Miss Kimball would immediately arrange for a series of lectures on “Familiarity.”
“The girls will vouch for Miss Kimball all right. I’m glad to hear such a logical explanation of your attitudes last night; but really I did not know that the fact that you had such inferior powers of comprehension would cause such an outburst of lamentation on your part. IJv the way. how did you enjoy the refreshments? We were sorry that you did not stay and enjoy them.”
“Refreshments! Better call them reinforcements.”
"The girls were so disheartened by the departure of the lx»vs that they had to use nourishment to arouse their failing spirits."
"Well, if laughing and having the best time imaginable is lx ing disheartened then we were exceedingly so. The next time von charter an interurban see that it waits until you are ready to go.”
“If you were having the lx st time imaginable what made you stop dancing at 10:15?”
“Oh! Do you mean 11 130? You see wc had the anticipation of a lovely moonlight ride; but you had the dread of a weary homeward tramp. Hope you didn't catch cold.” “Yes, we did have the dread of a weary homeward tramp; but instead wc found that the tramp was the most enjoyable part of the evening. Is Ada going to wear Matt’s scarf?”
“We’ve all been fighting for it: but I suppose it will go to the highest bidder. Zaidee has got a chance they tell me. Katharine saved Mr. Duffy’s stove pipe for Edward to wear when he calls on May.”
"What was the reason that you did not keep all of your trophies?”
"We couldn’t bear the thought of the boys’ little ears catching the wind like the sails on a Dutch wind-mill.”
"Well, we got better treatment than we expected.”
“That’s good. Then if we’re both satisfied we might shake hands on it and part in peace.”
At that moment the eight o’clock lx-11 rang, the altercation ceased, and the janitor

Page one hundred forty-threeThe Seniors as Faculty
• () say. Pat. have yez hcarn tell how the Senior byes and gals tried to take off the tachcrs the ither mornin?” No? Yez must have been schlapin’ all the time. Well, they did! They had some kind of a game up there along in St. Patrick's month—they call't it boxball, no! thot's not it. tub ball, no. not that athcr,—basketball, now I hav it— l asketball. It's where they hang some baskets up on the wall and byes dress up in nothings and try to throw a ball into one of ’em. It's a fine game. Something like won of those free-for-alls that we hav over at Flaherty’s occasionally. Anyhow—the tacher couldn’t kaj e the step ami the Seniors fellows bate ’em. So they tried to do the act where the I'aculty (them’s the tachcrs) spake alxmt iverybody—make great spaches alxnit things that nolxxly understands.
() hut they say twas grate! There was Dickie, what’s me friend, he took his father’s part and lie did it purty good, they say. And the gurls and all o’ the rist. oh. they was foine. And the tachcrs stood and look on. I very toime any of the byes made a spach they clapjx d and clapped. The Seniors got the swell head becuz they thot they were doin’ so well, but Murphcy and me ither friend Nona Riley tells me twas lx-cuz the Seniors were jist that much nearer thru their foolin’.
And would yez lx thinkin’ it? The rale tachcrs laughed and laughed at the fools the ither fellers were makin’ of thini. Especially thot jolly old Yankee professor man they call Mitchell. He’s of the right stuff so me friends tell me. Hut the best of it all was the last. The made-up Faculty wanted to lx sure they was appreciated an’ so they praised thimsilves jist awful. ’Twas a clean shame, so twas. the way they did’t. Thar was the toime they made fools of thimsilves. O thim fellers is truly grate.

W illis Buckley, in answer to an application for a position, received an offer, stating that the applicant must l e a married man and the salary was forty dollars per month. It is rumored that the following correspondence was carried on.
Oshkosh. W is.. January i, 1906.
Dear I'at her and Mother and I ved Ones at Home:
I’ve been offered a job and no longer need roam,
If only a help-mate from the fair sex I’ll take;
I’ll get room, board, wash, and forty dollars will make.
Now. father, advise me, as to what I shall do.
Do you think you could spare enough money for two?
Now I trust you can do this last kindness for me.
Your loving son, W. V. B.
The answer: Hartford. Wis., January 5. 1906.
Your letter arrived here today.
You asked mv advice and I give it straightway.
Just leave the fair damsel her way to pursue.
For I cannot spare money enough for two.
Come hack to the farm, to the Jerseys and home.
To good lodging and board, and you never need roam.
Come hack and bring with you a three-legged stool, •
To help with the milking is still here the rule.
1 hope the next train will bring you to me.
Sincerely your father, I). B.

And now a great honor Has been thrust upon her,—

I’age one hundred forty-nineReveries of Some of the Seniors
Will they miss me—I tried to he fair, and impartial in everything—will they remember me a year from now within the ivy-walled Normal?
They may not miss me. but I shall miss them.
By gosh! Golly! Thank goodness!! I've got my sheepskin! Good-bye. kids! Gee!! But you’re foolish to sit there and dig!!!
I wonder who’ll control the students next year—I. at least, made the Faculty understand that 1 believe in student control.
I certainly haven’t wasted any time on the hoys,—but still, I was popular—wasn’t I. girls?
Ha! Ha! Ha! I got thru that concern with a lot of fun and little work. Ha! Ha!
Now I don’t care—it just makes me tired—they’re always doing something like that—hut then it doesn’t do any good to talk—but who will do it when I am gone?
Who will teach every separate and collective individual "female woman" of the school the proper “stunts” as to dress, hair, and beads?
Well, I’ve let people know what I believe in. anyway—I only hope some of the Aletheatts will profit by it.
Will Daisy be Grimmer when I’m gone?
School to me was just a hollow bubble, don’t you know.
Who'll "Fling" the words next year at Senior Faculty meetings.
My only regret is that I haven’t found any one who will fill my place.
Page one hundred ft ft yMARGUERITE BUCKLEY:
Don't fed too bad. I’m coining back to take charge of Manual Training.
Really I don’t know how the boys will get along They used to bother me with so many invitations I just had to refuse sometimes.
IKVINT, R. HOWLETT:
I’ve said my say. and my natural modesty forbids me speak more.
Some teachers will never know how I goi thru but as long as I finished. I don't care.
Who will "Bea” capable of tilling my place as “Sir Oracle.”
MARY MINA HAN:
1 know they’ll miss me. but I’m in such a hurry to go that I can hardly wait till June.
What will Dresden do without me? I really think I ought to find a substitute before I go.
I don’t care whether they’ll miss me or not. I’ve had a good time but I’m not going to let it end with my graduation here.
I wonder who will find the way up to the Geography room for a chat. I don’t think the student body half appreciate the Faculty.
Who will be competent to bluff, slam, and make stump speeches when am gone—I’m! I'll be missed then.
JESSIE RAE VIETS:
I know the Mandolin Club will not Ik- any good next year—you know, girls, we’ll all In-gone.
I hope the Editor-in-Chief of The Advance next year will be allowed to run his own paper. Two 1k sscs don’t work, you know.
The only thing 1 regret is that I have not improved all my moments looking after John— 1 must manage it some way to see him often next year.
Next year, who will have the reputation for downright, dogged perseverance to duty?
I am sorry I did so much talking this year. I ought not to have wasted so much time talking. Tongue! be on thy guard!
I hope the girls next year will appreciate a feller. Why! once I asked fourteen girls to go to a basketball game before 1 found one who had the good sense to "take me up" on the proposition—think of it!!
Who'll give the boys a general good time next year?
1 hope some one will arise next year from the I .and of Somewhere, and assert his beliefs— radical tho they may Ik-.
When I think of all I have done for the Oshkosh Normal School—Why! I ought to be thanked for coming here—but with all my work I have managed to go home once a week, at least.
Page one Hundred fifty-oneSophomore Reveries
Scannc! and I have Ik-cii fair, wild red roses among thorns all year; but Scanuel has been plucked, and I shall teach school next year, so | guess the girls will have to go to the hot house for their flowers in 1906 and 1907.
Caine slew Able, and then Adam and Eve raised cane. That’s what the teacher do with me when I try to bluff; raise one or two from my standing. How do you bluff, anyway!
You girls arc all envious because I have such a strong constitution, and ant able to balance the scales in a “weighty matterhut Ik consoled, for only a few arc bom "great.”
Yes, I did go to a dance or two with S—-l —. I hear he is going to West Point! 1 have
In-gun to prepare my heart for a siege.
JOHN COX .
We struggled in the bubbling, seething, flood! ! The "Shor-he” vainly tried to reach before I did! Foully he sat upon my head, and the deep, dark waters gurgled, and gurgled in my cars! I loosened his hold, rose to the surface, and with one mighty effort reached the shore, and "Johnny on the spot,” carried off the prize.
Say, have you heard my latest composition, boys? ’Tis a sonnet to “A Lady Fair.” Listen!
All the other girls, O-dcc! but her are on the bum!
O-dce! O-dcc! O-dec-dcc-di-dc-um;
You crazy loons would like to know her name,
O-dec! O-dee! and others would like the same.
I neither sing nor dance.
Nor very often smile.
I favor no man’s glance.
Nor think him worth my while.
HARRIETT! : HAYWARD:
Some people in this school arc young and giddy, others arc old and foolish. The first need a nurse, the second a caretaker; but as forme. I am neither young nor old. I have mingled the characteristics of both, and know from experience that it does not pay for a woman to grow old. nor to fall into her socond childhood.
You hear people talk about “growing in grace." but I have always found it cheaper to grow in height. To "grow in grace” costs you twenty cents every Sunday, but in height, nothing.
I’d advise all maidens fair.
Who would avoid an awful mess,
To of every man beware.
And live a prim spinstercss.
What’s the use of being a “reporter,” I’d like to know, if you can't rap on the desk and show visitors that you’re "some punkins,” and the members of the Faculty that you intend doing your duty, even tho you are creating a disturbance yourself? That’s my j olicy!
[’age one hundred fifty-twoELMER NYGAARD:
Then arc only three things for a man in this world: to he rich. good looking, or a great jollier. A person would he selfish to desire all three: so I chose the last mentioned one. When I have jollied Illinois into a defeat. I am going to descend upon the Ladies Study. Make strong your defences, sweet hearts!
Is my first name a Bible name? Well, how do I know? Haven't had time to look it up on on account of “practice;” hut will search the pages of the Bible next year after I have begun to teach, and yet you know.
G. W. PUFFER:
I did my best to prevent this excessive, harmful custom of dancing from encroaching upon the fundamental principles abstemiously adhered to in this school, heretofore. W ho will brave the school's displeasure next year, and raise a barrier against her unwise, unadvised measures. My strong arm will be engaged in other business. I teach school.
Be a witty man! A practical joker! There's nothing like it to save your time as well as that of others. When they see you coming they run. They think you have a stale joke to spring on them. Don’t you see how it saves your time. No one will ever stop you to talk when you arc in a hurry. They arc afraid of your jokes. I will sell cheap all rights to the use of the art for next year.
Why didnt I begin to appreciate Miss J-sooner? I just got a good start when she left

Page one hundred fifty-fourFaculty Talks
What "Rhetoricals" arc to the students. "Faculty Talks" are to the teachers, except in lx th cases it is the students who suffer most. Gladly would they deny the teachers the privilege of listening to Rhetoricals on Thursday, but these teachers are merciless and not only insist on hearing Rhetoricals but also feel it their duty to inflict a "Faculty talk” on the students once a week. These talks are intended to be instructive, but often lx-come exhortative. For Rhetoricals all “prompts” are forbidden the students by the teachers but for "Faculty talks” the generous body of students permit the teachers to use notes or hooks and sometimes permit them to read their productions. The new reading desk is an excellent prop for those who are timid a lx nit appearing before a large audience. The following are extracts from the various Faculty talks given during the year:
And now let me urge you one and all to prepare yourselves to carry a message to Garcia! When the message is given you. ask no questions but carry it at once to Garcia !—President Halsey.
I say. "Down with Athletics." put Athletics out of the schools. Athletics were all right when they were played fairly, but that was years B. C.—Miss Apthorp.
Last week we enjoyed a song cycle, so 1 shall give a '‘poem-cycle, this week.” ( And then she recited love poems).—Miss Clark.
Yes. I always know where all the graduates go each year, a girl went to Iron
Mountain and she is doing fine there. Miss----went to a little town up in the northern
part of the state. Then Miss----went to Chicago, I visited her school, she is a very
successful teacher.—Mr. Briggs.
A machine is a contrivance which will do a great amount of work in a very short length of time. The Faculty have machines and each member of the Faculty tries to see whose machine can do the greatest amount of work in the shortest time.—Mr. Goddard.
(The students are the machines.)
Mr. Burbank is indeed a wonderful man. By cultivation he transformed the cactus into a food for cattle. Me has removed the briers from the rosebush and the scent from the onion. By constant care lie has even persuaded the oak tree to bear English walnuts. What is the psychology of it all?—Mr. Small.
If any of you young ladies would like information about the style of gowns for the coming season, just speak to Miss Rooney or me as we are authority on that subject.— Miss Kimball (after her trip to Milwaukee).
Now see here, my good people, my horse has good horse sense but 1 wouldn’t thank any of you to endow him with human sense for if you did he might Ik driving me. The laws of the Mcdcs and Persians, etc.—Mr. Mitchell.
What arithmetic the children in some schools learn, they learn in spite of the teacher, rather than because of her. When you go out to teach, teach the truth.— Miss Webster.
Books have life as well as anything else. The life of books is generally short lx -cause people are so careless with them. They break the backs of the l ooks the first time they open the book, and the life of a book is gone when its back is broken.—Miss Parmelc.
To lx beautiful, one must l e graceful. To lx graceful one must spend at least one hour a day out of eight days in a week in the gymnasium.—Miss Shepardson.
