Mr. Norm a life:
This is the best picture wc have ever published of our smart, new three-button sack-suit for young men. We call special attention to the new “forward dip” of the coat, the low rolling lapels and the general air of grace, refinement and tone. It has every new point that is being embodied in the high-priced custom tailor-made suits in the exclusive shops of Broadway. New York, but it is priced along common sense lines from $12.50 to $22.50.

OSHKOSH STATE NORMAL.Greeting
With this publication “The Quiver” celebrates its tenth anniversary.
Although the fir t edition was published by the senior class, “The Quiver” has since passed into the hands of the juniors, but its original purpose remains the same, each class endeavoring only to fulfill that purpose in a better way. We, the Junior Class of 1907, having finished our work, re-echo the greetings of our predecessors, and tru f that “The Quiver” of 1907 may be a worthy exponent of the true spirit of the Oshkosh Normal School.I)R. FREDERICK R. CLOWTo
Frederick R. Clow, Scholar, Teacher, Friend The Junior Class of 1907 Dedicates this Volume.
Quiver, each arrow from you sent,
Is sent with good and fair intent,
Each tipped w ith mirth, it gives no sting. We hope you will fair memories bring To all who have from Normal gone;
To us, when that high goal is won,
A glad reminder may you he Of work, and friends, and faculty.

Away, far. far away from here
You go to where the gray Without Is ever tinged by mocking Doubt.
And Life’s glad smile ln-comes a sneer.
What fools call Chance and brave men Fate.
Sits there upon an iron throne.
Guarding with iron sword her own—
And guards them well—nor love, nor hate
Has she for nun. Success and Gold
Are for the Strong, are for Earth's Strong.
To subtle brain and hand belong—
Are theirs of right to have and hold.
Into the dark Without of Life,
Where Might makes Right, and fair white truth D crushed by Forces void of Ruth Or Justice -you go out to Strife.
A health to you! May Hope, high Heart.
And Courage, lords of all our Earth.
Be ever with you! To your worth A health, a health e'er you depart.
Into the marts you go to sell.
To wring from grudging hands your due.
May all your skies be ever blue,
Your stars blaze ever bright. Farewell!
Prom the members of class 1907. greetings: To you, im|K rtant Juniors, to you. self-confident Sophomores, to you. care-free Freshmen!
We herein purpose to tell you a few of the achievements of the members of our class, to note the influence of a patron saint, and. better than all this, to leave behind a few words of advice which may save you from great grief and keep the school on the high plane of excellence which‘lias been especially good in the past four years.
This class is not made up of a mediocre company—we outnumber any former class in our great variety of distinguished people. Truly, this June has given the world a band of the most cosmopolitan of teachers. We find among them great artist ., debaters, who are winning fame beyond the borders of their own state, orators, who will astonish the world with their wide range of thought and elegance of style; dcclaimcrs. musicians, and athlete who can't be beat by the Faculty or abducted by Juniors. We tremble to think of the chunks of wisdom that will fall from the lips of our parliamentarians. Among our members are the neatest of house-keepers. (Remember the Senior Study and blush at the thought of the Old Ladies’ I lomc.) From our ranks come great painters, photographers, and metal workers. And so. one might go on. Suffice it to say that the present Senior class will be a great gift from the Oshkosh Normal School to Wisconsin.
Our life here has been a varied one. We have stumbled, have met opposition, and been forced to succumb. Hut we have always let these failures, these humilities teach some of the best life lessons. We have been winners as well as losers. I'he Juniors of Stevens Point bowed before our mighty voice in nineteen hundred and six. I his year the Illinois Normal resounds to the thunders of our debaters. We have gained the honors in basket-ball. Hut with all this we are very humble. During these la-t two years we have been carcfuly watched over by a kind friend and helper. He was always ready to aid those in need, to cheer the down-hearted. When his Red Letter Day came he shared his joy with his own people. In the hearts of each of this class will always be a corner for Professor Hewitt.
We rejoice over the pleasant hours spent here, the duties done, and the lessons learned, but a tinge of sadness and regret touches ti- at the thought of leaving the dear old school. However, we must prepare you. who next year fill our places. Freshmen, keep up vour standard reputation. Sophomores, humble yourselves, for there i . much to learn. Juniors, great responsibility rests on you. We feel that when you return you may become as efficient as your predecessors. Don’t gel more than two report-, don t forget appointments, don t lose your dignity. He kind to the new Juniors, welcome all g«»od criticism, attend your class meetings, and. "Let him who is greatest among you, become the servant of all.

In the autumn of 1906 came a mighty class. A class who came. saw. and conquered everything. We have gathered our laurels without display. We have poets, dcclaitncrs. orators, athletes, and debaters of unequalled force and knowledge. Many arc the things that might he told of this class, enough to till a volume. Much could he related of their perseverance, much of their cheerfulness and willingness, their wonderful -.kill in practice teaching, their loyalty in the support of athletics, their aid in bringing about the "County Fair,” and their work in rhctoricals. but we shall let others tell the story. The last quarter i drawing to a close. The Junior class will soon be no more. We end the year looking back on many happy days spent in the Ladies' Study, and go to our loftier places in the Senior Study with regret. We leave to you, our fellow-students, the Quiver, as our parting gift, and wish that you may be led to the same heights of success, may be guided as safely over the rocky road as has the Junior Class of 1907. And so, "Adieu.”

“Gracious.” remarked the blackboard in the Psychology room. "I am dead tired."
“More outlines?" asked the desk.
"No. a Sophomore class meeting. They must be ‘hustlers those Sophomores. 1 here were a whole roomful of them in here tonight, and they bad a lot of business, to judge by the stuff they wrote on me. but they were through long before the bell rang. I rom what I hear they work that way all the time."
We are inclined to agree with the blackl oard. and arc much obliged to it for putting so well what it would be rather difficult for a Sophomore to say. We do ‘hustle and one of the things we ‘hustle about is class spirit. Did you happen to go to any inter-class contests, athletic or otherwise, in which the Sophomores took part? If you did. you know all about how our class manifested itself in veils and singing. We believe that the Sophomore year is the happiest year of school life. We are not so lost and lonesome as we were our first year, nor so rushed as we shall l c next year in our last year. We arc enjoying the present, and we do not deny that the Seniors justify their claim to wisdom when they express their sentiments about us in the song:
Here's to nineteen-nine.
Drink ’em down, drink ’em down.
Here’s to nineteen nine.
And we think you're doing tine.
Drink 'em down, drink ’em down,
O drink 'em down.

strong, aide, independent band are we. pitied by the Seniors, treated with condescension by haughty Juniors, scorned by superior Sophomores, but carefully prized and cherished by the Faculty. Upper classmen call us green. They say we are innocent, that our garments arc shrunken, that Our conduct and appearance testify to our hayseed past. These clever students delight in getting us into awkward predicaments. To give us a white slip furnishes them pleasure: to say we are a branch of the Farmers Institute seems to them the height of witticism; to defeat us in debate, oratory, and on the athletic field is considered especially noteworthy. And we, how do we bear these 'lights? As is fitting. We walk serenely on, get our lessons, seek to be useful, learn many things, and do not consider the attacks worthy our attention, lienee the Faculty favor we so modestly enjoy, lienee the consideration shown us by the upper class girls (especially lavished upon the heroes of the athletic field). Yes. we have a class to be proud of. to admire. Verdant, are we? l-ook down our line. Intellect, ability is inherent in every member and written upon their countenances. The doughty Sophomores felt our strength and yielded in the Freshman-Sophomore debate. Nicholas Majcrus, Lawrence Petersen, and Chas. Schimmcl won the laurels on that occasion, and the Sophomores Imwed as ln-st they might to the will of the gods. And great were the deeds of our basket ball team. Even the Junior trembled before our able men and fought the struggle of their lives ere they secured the championship. We have achieved much during this, our Freshman, year. A' it draws to a close we look proudly upon the records made, ami one in loyalty look forward to three years more of happy school life.
NINTH A CLASSNINTH B CLASS
Ninth A Class
The graduating class of November. iqc6. numbered sixteen. The way in which the class stayed together throughout the course was remarkable. All but four started in the Primary grades. Two of these began work in the Intermediate grades, and two in the Grammar grades. The class made a very good record in the Training Department, both in scholarship and deportment. They considered work before pleasure, and showed a pleasing spirit. As a result it was a favorite of practice teachers, and they always expressed regret at leaving the class. The critics, too. thought very much of the class, and Miss Swart was often heard to say. "This is a class of which 1 heartily approve.”
The class was much interested in the celebration of Mark Twain’s seventieth birthday and decided to have some of his works for their exercise. There were enough in the class to have exercises alone, but at the request of the Ninth 15.. that would graduate in June, and which was too small in number to have exercises of their own. they were aided bv them. Together the two classes set to work to do justice to Mark Twain’s "Tom Sawyer." "The Gilded Age." and "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc.”
Thirteen out of the sixteen pupils entered the Normal department, and have taken an active part in the work of the school.
Ninth B Class
The graduating class of April consisted of seven members. Four of the pupils received their training in the grades of this school, and the remaining three entered itt the Grammar room. It has often been said by one of the teachers of this department that the class consisted of "Quality, not Quantity.” Five of the members are continuing their work in the Normal department.
On account of the small numl cr in the class no graduating exercises were held in April, but the class took part in the exercises of the preceding class
So large the joy his fun has given.
To match il one might try in vain.
But what one man could never do Is easily done by Twain.

To thf Readers of the Quirer:
Mow many, I wonder, know what a colony of Oshkosh graduates Indianapolis has—fourteen now, since Evelyn Calcf went to the High School at Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Ella Earnswortlt joined the ranks of the Chicago teachers. Front the time when Hello Scofield. Harry Bassett, and Cliff Stone, pioneers as it were, came here in the fall of Indianapolis ha not been without its Oshkosh representatives. Among the fourteen who are now members of the Indianapolis branch of the Oshkosh Alumni Association. Civil Palmer, although not a graduate of the Oshkosh school, is counted one. Iwcausc of her having Itecn a member of the Oshkosh Normal School Faculty last year. Distance front home as well a' a common interest in the Oshkosh school, make the tie which binds the graduates here doubly strong, and also helped to make President Halsey's visit here la t February one to Ik long remembered. Each meeting of the association brings the exchange of home news, a glimpse of I he Advance, a merry time, the singing of “The White and the Gold." and a strengthening of the bond which unites the Alumni here to the school at home.

56Greetings from Honored Alumni
I am so Rlad of the opportunity to send you greetings from over the sens, a message of felicitation on your annual visit to tis. I have been thinking lately of your initial appearance, of the days we spent anticipating the first Quiver, of the rumors circulated regarding the scathing remarks, the daring attacks, the satires and cartoons, to he perpetrated, and of the tedious delays before the great day of issue. How we rushed for our copies, read and reread them from cover to cover, how we reveled in the poems, the jokes and the puns, as your readers are doing now. Ihit 'tis little joy to realize now. O Quiver, that I have passed outside the charmed circle. Your darts are no longer so pointed ami caustic (to me). Your witticisms have even occasionally to be explained to my uncomprehending mind. Your photographs ami sketches show unfamiliar faces. The nicknames, slurs. and quips are almost meaningless. In short. I no longer know who's who or what’s what in the Oshkosh Normal. I was a Normalite, and am now but an Alumna, a dweller in the outskirts and the suburbs of her favor. And reflecting sadly on the mutability of events and conditions with you. 1 am consoled with the fact that Rome, in any case, is Kternal, ami that here even a thousand year-seen no more than a day. For one may stand on the Palatine bv the Wall of Romulus, and see. not far distant, slowly rising on the Capitolinc Mill, the huge monument of Victor Kman-uel. first King of United Italy. The Cloaca Maxima continues to drain the Forum Romanum. the Coliseum still stands, and Pompcy's statue, which once ran blood. One may gaze on the same tomb that Paul of Tarsus saw. when he passed out of Rome to his death, and meditate on the spot where Ricnzi tell after hi- last address to the Roman | coplc. My message to the Quiver is proverbial—this—that all roads lead to Rome. For whatever one’s interest in life. Rome can broaden and develop it. whether it Ik- Literature. History, or Religion. Music. Painting, or Sculpture, rchitccture or Archaeology. Rome can supply every requirement. "Rome is the high school open to all the world."
Rome. Italy. Annif. Follett.
Dear Friends of the ellutnni:
Come back to your Alma Mater as often as you can. for the sympathetic spirit and thorough work which have ever been the corner-stone of the Oshkosh Normal are still it- characteristics and every alumnus may feel that it is home indeed.

So. when the mood comes over me.
Home 1 return to be with thee.
Forget the years, with backward looks At this dear land of nooks and crooks.
57For the old school, I love ii best ! It is here they tell us how largely we are blest, while they teach us what we lack. It is here they graft on prudence and prune away our folly. It is here they set us between a great work Ik fore us, and the wisdom of ages behind.—Our Alma Mater!
“In fancy, always at the desk thrown wide.
Thou ha I test thy glib quill and laughing-eyed,
(iivest hale welcome even unto me."
Another look.—We arc liecoming quite gigantic with learning to quote class(ic) anecdotes.—Our Junior!
I look again,—"And gladly wolde he lerne. and gladly tcche." We grapple with problems that all but paralyze the will. The studious night follows the studious day. We seek out kind faces and voices that are mild, voices that steal thru our doubt and lift us from the con fusion that overwhelms us. Words can never tell of the mystic influence that seems to dwell among these kindly spirits: hut thru sweet companionship, somehow, we understand. Soul-forward we plunge to join the ranks of these great souls and—lo! we score an "excellent." Our Senior!
"Who’ll sort 'em out and set 'em down, says I.

To llir Students. Faculty, and .Uunini-—Greetings:
The continued prosperity of the school which played a potent part in the shaping of early ideals is a matter for congratulation. That the good influences of the school may become so powerful that those who leave its walls to take their respective places in the various departments of life may And in their work, no matter how humble or how exalted it may be. the joy that transforms it into art. is my best wish for you.

Never miss the Alumni banquet! Come even ii you arc not invited. This comes from one who has attended every time since graduation, and a number of times before—that is. ate ice cream and pickles down in the basement sitting in and on the dish baskets while the banqueters were enjoying the toasts. Friendship is the keynote of this occasion, the forming of the new. the renewal and the strengthening of the old.
Oshkosh Normal School. Mary E. Rich.
To send greetings to an absent friend is but to obey a spontaneous and natural impulse, but to salute in ceremonious fashion, and with formal observance those whom we daily meet i not the custom, and seems out of place and uncalled for. And so my salutation must be to those who dwell afar from their Alma Mater and who gladden her only too seldom by their home coining. To the mcntlxr of the Alumni who abide in the far away islands of the Pacific, to those who have made a home by the waters of the southern gulf, to those who dwell in the shadow of the mighty mountains that guard our western coast, to those who live imdtr the British flag, to those who have wandered to the cities of the Atlantic, and to those who carry on their chosen work in the towns and cities of our own favored state, salutations and greetings to you all.
Oshkosh Normal School.
Harriet E. Clark.Heartiest Greetings and Best Wishes to “The Quiver:"
May the whole influence of ottr Alma Mater reach ever wider, stamp itself ever more sharply on the lives of those whom it touches.
University of California. W«. E. Ritter.
Cultivate the seeing eye. the hearing ear. and the understanding heart. Ask for the faith that makes faithful and the grace that makes gracious. Return thanks daily for a chance to play a part in this very interesting world, and highly resolve to make that part a leading one. Oshkosh Normal School. Emii.v F. Wkiistek.
Memory brings back to me what Alma Mater stood for in it earlier years- years in which I knew her best. What better message can I send you than the wish that you may cherish the traditions of those days, and that you may live up to the ideals which were an inspiration to her students. Honest and independent work, thoroughness of preparation, loyalty to Alma Mater.— may this ever be- the creed of the student of the Oshkosh Normal School.

Carroll College, Waukesha. A- W. I return.
(). N. S.! What recollections these letters bring to graduates and former students! The graduates of the first years of the school think of the lessons taught and of the foundations laid so deep and so strong by our revered President. G. S. Albec. assisted by his noble corps of teachers. And we recall how in the gloom following President Albee’s death. Professor I.. W. Briggs held the White and the Gold aloft with honor to himself, the State, and the school, until the Board of Regents could bring back to Wisconsin. R. H. Halsey, our present beloved leader. These thirty-five or more years bring to us messages of value in our chosen profession. They teach us to laltor patiently: to build solidly: to dig deep: to look forward with cheer: to hope for still better days for our school and for the schools of the 'late. “If truth rise not today, it surely will tomorrow These words, uttered by President Albec on Commencement morning. i . are the message sent by this school to it- graduates and to its friends.
Oshkosh Normal School. B- Mack Dresden.
My thoughts often wander to.my experience in the dear old Normal, and especially when in directing a class in the County Normal, the question comes. "How would Miss Magee do this, or what would -lie say on the subject?” Oshkosh certainly leaves a mark on her students, and I continue to feel that it was well to have Ik-cu there.

I am proud of the Alumni stamp of the Oshkosh Normal. I he days spent there were pleasant and profitable ones, ami my greeting ami g«M d will go out to all working within its influence.

"Wc leave the well-beloved place Where first we met the other face to face; The roofs that heard our youthful cries Will shelter those of another race.
“We go. hut ere wc go from home.
As down the graveled walk we move. Two spirts of a diverse love Contend for loving masterdom.
"One whispers, here the boyhood sung I.ong since its matin song and heard The low love language of the bird In native hazels tasslcs hung.
"The other answers. “Yea. hut here I'liy feet have strayed in after years With thy loved friends among the trees. And this hath made them trebly dear.”
"These two have striven half the day.
And each prefers his separate claim.
Poor rivals in a losing game That will not yield each other way.
"1 turn to go: my feet are set To leave the pleasant field and farms. They mix in one another's arms To one pure image of regret."

The purpose of the Y. Y. and the Y. M. C. A. is to systematize and promote Christian work among the Normal students. These organizations not only aid in bringing the students into closer fellowship with one another. Imt they also offer the best advantages for the formation of strong moral character. Both branches hold devotional meetings once a week. The Y. V. meets at 4:10 on Thursday and the Y. M. at 6:45. The time taken up by these meetings is spent in studying the Old Testament characters, which prove interesting as well as most helpful. On the first Monday in each month the two branches hold a union meeting. At these meetings a pastor from one of the city churches usually speaks. The annual Hand Hook, published by this association, contains much useful information, especially for new students. This little pamphlet typifies the .spirit of our work, helpfulness, kindness, friendship, an earnest purpose, and persistent effort to better our Christian lives. Yc believe that:
Can be pure in its purpose and strong in it» strife.
And all life not l»c purer and stronger thereby."

It is with no small amount of pride that the Oshkosh Normal can boast of having connected with it so many societies composed of efficient students who are doing all in their power to contribute to the growth and character of the institution. I'he Lyceum, the oldest of these organization, first and foremost among all the others in the line of progress, needs no introduction. We are a band of loyal workers, anxious to develop the noblest type of manhood and womanhood. It is within our ranks that opportunities for such development are found. In the literary field our members are taught to appear before their associates, and, without fear, discuss intelligently the questions of the day. Of musicians, we have many, and in regard to orators we had the honor of claiming two of the winners in the preliminary for the oratorical contest. The salutatorian of the class of 1907 also arose from the ranks of the Lyceum. One of the prominent features of the weekly programs is the business meetings in which a lively interest is shown. The parliamentary practice, which has been ably conducted by Oliver McKee, has proved very instructive to those taking an active part. Although we are earnest workers in all these lines, yet we aim to Ik a help to one another by making firm the bands of friendship existing between us. 'c arc always ready to welcome those members who have left us to enter upon new activities, as well as extend an invitation to new corners wishing to become co-workers with ns in the Lyceum society.PHOENIX

"The gravest of the graver class, the gayest of the gay." such is the Phoenician society, ever ready for work or for pleasure, and doing bravely its full share of both. Our forty-five members have been kept active throughout the year doing the many necessary things required in every progressive organzation. Our work has proved the heaviest carried bv any society. During the winter we presented the society play, entered into debates with the Philakean and the Lyceum societies, into a declamatory contest with the Philologians. and regularly presented our Saturday evening programs. For pleasures the Christmas-tree celebration, and the spread in honor of the Junior Normal victory over the Stevens Point Normal deserve especial notice. Miss Alma Kohhnan, one of our three successful Junior debaters, is a Phoenician. and a member of whom the society is justly proud. Others, famous in debate, in declamatory power, in singing, in artistic skill ami in aptitude for hard, steady work, fill our ranks. Although the year's work was heavy, it has been enjoyed hv all. The best of society spirit prevails. The tasks and pleasures gone through have shown the benefits of our society, for we have gained in friends, in experience, in knowledge, and in culture. When we leave this school to enter the more difficult walks of life for which we are being fitted, one of the brightest of our school memories will be the Phoenix society. The motto: "Culture, not show." expresses our aspiration. May it he carried on as nobly in the future as it has been in the past: may the green and white ever wave as proudly as now: and may the Lincoln bust, emblem of victory, ever remain in our care.

In a few days Philakcan will close the eighth year of its existence as one of the chief literary and debating societies in the school. It is old enough now to have traditions, and the tale of l.ivinus Philippus Denoycr and his hand of brave men and hard workers is cherished dearly by every Philakcan. It was they. who. moved hv the fraternal spirit and the desire for an excellence in working ability unattainable in the other societies, secured to themselves and to their successors the perpetuation of that spirit ami the permanent necessity for that excellence by a constitution remarkable in its clearness and remarkable in it effectiveness.
It was the belief of the founders that skill in parliamentary practice, and debating and executive ability, as well as the fraternal pirit. could best Ik- attained in a society composed wholly of men. In order to develop individual excellence the membership was limited to thirty. Even as it is. such careful selection is exercised that the limit is seldom reached. Not brilliancy, but the capacity for good hard work is the test for admission.
The society meets every Saturday evening. Its literary programs consist of talks, declamations, and debates. Meintiers are encouraged to volunteer on debate. Parliamentary practice is not limited to a few minutt ju Philakcan. It is practical, and Robert's Rules of Order is in use throughout the meetingJMa cry thcmlier is on the alert and the chairman who does not have his decision appealed least once during a meeting must Ik- more than
Philakcan has always maintained its supremacy in the fields of athletics, debating, and declamatory contests. It has not only won the debate with Phoenix and the declamatory contest with A let bean again this year, but is represented by two members on the Illinois debate and one of the Stevens Point debate. The winner of the oratorical contest this year is a Philakcan. The society i' well represented in positions requiring executive ability. The editor-in-chief of The Advance, the presidents of the Junior and the Sophomore classes, and of the oratorical, athletic, and Christian associations are Philakcan . Wc feel that we have kept up the high standard set by our honorary meml crs. and we will meet them right gladly and with a sense of duty well performed at the annual banquet. June 15. at the 'Fremont hotel.

"We hail thee. Aletltean. thy l anncr we raise.
Alethean. we'll sing thee a song in thy praise;
Thy motto is ‘Truth.’ thy purpose is true.
Oh. hark to our song. we hut give thee thy due."
Fervently, proudly, and happily do we sing these words; for Alethean has never swerved from its high standard, hut has always stood for what i» praiseworthy and true.
The work of Alethean this year, as in previous years, has been enjoyable and profitable, and the society spirit has been excellent.
Although the aim of the society is principally to promote a high intellectual culture, still e do not forget that social intercourse is good for the soul. Alethean "spreads" are some of the pleasant experiences of our Normal School life and greatly aid ill establishing the feeling of good fellowship which exists between the members. When we hear expressions of the deepest loyally and affection for Alethean from those who left its ranks as their school da .vent by. we. the present active members, realize more fully what pleasures and benefits We d H e fri.il) Otir society;- and again we earnestly resolve t. promote its best interests and thus jrve Aletltean. as we hopefully sing, "to those who may follow a heritage fair."
Photo by Lyman.The Itcginning of the school year found the society in an unorganized condition. Notwithstanding this, the few members who returned entered into the work with a determination to build up the society. Its growth was slow at first, partly due to a rumor among the students that its success was questionable. Ivamest. energetic work and a fixed purpose, however, have overcome all the obstacles that confronted us and secured for the society a Ixxly of active meinlters who have helped in attaining its present high standard. Much of its success is due to the assistance of Professor Small and Proftssor Dresden. Our (ierman friend has always been ready to give advice and helpful suggestions, and Professor Small shows his interest in the society by entertaining the members at his home. In order to establish a closer relationship between the members, an informal reception was held in the music room of the Normal shortly after we had organized. The principal features of the weekly programs are declamations. lnx k reports, and studies of the great authors. Besides these, the social and educational problems of the present time are discussed, while an occasional debate renders the programs somewhat more enlivening. Parliamentary drills are always eagerly participated in by the members. April was a red letter day for our society, when we met the Phoenicians and defeated them in a declamatory contest. Though the society still in its infancy, we feel that its foothold is now established and that, by the aid of faithful, conscientious members it may continue me of the strong societies of this Normal.
Hurrah ! girls, hurrah !
The best Literary that ever you saw.
Yes. we’ll rally round her standard And sing it once again.

This organization. although only in its third year, has In-come without question one that ranks among the best in prominence and educational value, mniig its numbers are found members from all the various organizations of the school in which men are allowed the privilege of membership. This clearly shows that the club offers something useful and beneficial that is not acquired by being associated with the other organizations. At the lieginning of the school year only four of the former members of the club were present; but in a few days the numl»er of meml crs had more than tripled. The work of the club has always been of such a character that the purpose for which it was organized has never been lost sight of: namely, the discussion of the cause and the solution of the great problems of the day as well as their application to life. The program committee considers most carefully the various problems of the day in order to Ik- able to assign only those topics that are of vital im-jtortance. Under the auspices of the club a course of lectures, all instructive, and several amusing as well, was given. The lectures were held in the Normal auditorium and were well attended. Through the special efforts of the committee in charge of the course the services of the Rev. Herbert S. Bigelow, one of the most prominent lecturers of today, were secured. One of the numbers consisted of "Life Portrayals from Dickens." in costume, by Win. S. Battis. This was appreciated very much by all who attended. The meetings of the club are held in the Rhetoric room on Friday evening from 6:45 to 8:15. A most cordial welcome is extended to all young men of the school, especially to those desiring to keep abreast with the times.

All have appreciated the fact that the German Circle affords the opportunity for improvement in the use of the German language, through it- programs of recitations, speeches, songs, and conversations. Who among us will ever forget “Die Wacht am Rhein." "Kos-lein.” or “'Treue Licbc," or the interesting talk Mr. Wolf gave of the adventures of the Swabians. or the pleasant time all enjoyed in the Music room on the Friday evening preceding our Christmas vacation, playing progressive- domino, drinking "Kaffec." eating "KafTce-kuchcn” and "Wcihnachtskuchcn." We shall often look hack to those pleasant days and say.

No doubt those members of the Circle who finish their course at the end of the year experience a feeling of regret at the thought of leaving. Their efforts have been instrumental in making the work of the Circle successful and full of excellent -pint during the past year. The following lines, perhaps, will serve to voice their sentiments:

The Browning club meets bi-weekly at the home of Miss Peake. Its purpose is to l»e-comc acquainted with the works of the poet, and to cultivate an appreciation for the |M ct himself. This year the club studied tirst. some of the author's child poems; then some of bis longer poems, and. " The Blot in the Scutcheon.” As special work the ’‘Rubaiyat." of Omar Khayyam, was taken up. and compared with. "Rabbi Ben Ezra.” This proved a most interesting topic, and aroused much discussion on the part of the club and it" visitors. For Miss Peake's pleasant meetings are so well known that very few sessions are held at which guests arc not present. The close of the Browning meetings was rendered particularly delightful through the reading of “Pippa Passes,” by Miss Clark. The member' feel that every hour spent at this club has been lioth beneficial and restful.
We learn to feel with the poet that:—
"Because a man has shop to mind
In time ami place, since Hcsh must live.
Need spirit lack all life behind.
All stray thoughts, fancies fugitive.
All loves except what trade can give?
"I want to know a butcher paints.
A baker rhymes for bis pursuit.
Candle stick maker much acquaints llis soul with song, or happy mute.
Blows out bis brains upon the flute.
"But—shop each day and all day long!
Friend, your good angel slept, your star
Suffered eclipse, fate did you wrong 1
From where these sorts of treasures are.
Our hearts should be. Christ, how far!”

The Shakespeare Study Club is completing a most interesting year's work, consisting of a critical study of the "Merry Wives of Windsor," "Cyinheline," and "King Richard the Third." Perhaps the play most enjoyed by the club was "Cyinheline ’ for every one was enthusiastic over linogenc. the heroine, admiring her pure character, her sweetness and her womanliness, glad the story closes by giving her merited happiness. We meet fortnightly on Tuesday evenings at the home of the different members, and one hour of study is enjoyed under the helpful assistance of our director, Miss Harden. A syllabus is prepared for individual work, topics arc discussed and interesting ideas gained from the study, are presented at the meeting.. After a play is completed, special topics relating to the |M»ints of interest are rc| ortcd upon by the different members. The membership, limited to fifteen, is. at present, full. During the year we have lost a numl cr of strong workers, who, having completed their course, have withdrawn from school, but some one is always ready to fill any vacancy. During the greater part of the year the club has been too busy to pend time on the lighter things of life, such as spreads and other social events. Hut our one open meeting held in the Normal reception room was thoroughly enjoyed. The topics discussed proved interesting as usual, and the social hour following was most pleasant. We close the year’s work feeling that we know Shakespeare better than ever before, that we have acquaintance with the master plays of the world, that we arc strengthened and bettered through the friendships made and the happy hours spent together.

The aim of this society is to become acquainted with our common birds that we may know something about their habits, their homes, and their value to us. Further titan this, it i hoped that by arousing our interest in birds we may co-operate in the movement against their destruction. The society meets once every two weeks on Tuesday evening. The line of work at these meetings has l ccn to study carefully a number of families of birds which include the common varieties found in this vicinity. Besides the discussions given by the members, the specimens in the museum have been used to illustrate this work. On Saturday mornings the society goes on an excursion to the outskirts of the city, where birds are plentiful. Wc are here able to supplement the indoor study by actual observation. We feel that the work of this society will be a lasting benefit to us in our duties as a teacher; besides this, the study of birds is intensely interesting. Wherever our work calls us we shall stand ready to love and protect birds, and to teach our pupils the beauty and value of these myriad, feathered friends.
83Public Speaking Club
Who has not heard of the Public Speaking Club, held under the supervision of Miss Clark, the patron saint of all efforts alone oratorical lines? If by chance you wandered thru the dimly lighted lower corridor at 6:30 on a Friday evening, you were perhaps surprised to hear strange sounds issuing from unknown regions. Upon investigation you found that the ominous noises came font the Workroom, where the Public Speaking Club was repeating in concert a little ditty which ran something like this. "A big black bear met a big black bug." But what became of the bug we never hear. Or perhaps one of the meml ers was rising to unknown heights in the rendition of “Claudius and Cynthia." or "The Secret of Lincoln's Power." The Public Speaking Club met only during the first semester. It- work consisted in reading and interpreting many of the selections from orations and addresses found in Mitchell’s School and College Speaker. All engaged thus put forth their l cst efforts, for indeed who would not be inspired to nobler effort after listening to a reading given by Miss Clark? The results of this work have been shown in various ways during the year. One of our members. Mr. Savage, was a contestant in the oratorical contest. Several of the members have done creditable work in the inler-schoo! and inter-society debates, and still others have appeared on the special programs given during the year. The work of the society ended very pleasantly at the apartments of Miss Clark, where the members were delightfully entertained. The members of the club are:

The Girls’ League is not as formidable an organization as its name might lead one to infer, knowing that the larger part of the student body is composed of girls. On the contrary. there are people in the Normal who have never heard of it. do not even know that such an organization exists. Its purpose, however, is a commendable one—to aid in good house-keeping. For a large school like this, where the janitor is ever busy, where students are not as careful as their mothers might wish: where every shred of paper, mislaid book, and lost sheet adds confusion, it is essential that some system be derived for keeping order. The league furnishes this system. Every girl in school is a member, but a special active board exists, composed of three representatives from each of the four classes with three of the lady-members of the faculty as advisers. The duties imposed upon each individual are not burdensome, merely to see that her particular desk and its surrounding floor area are kept free from scraps of paper, stray hook-, ami anything else not compatible with good house-keeping. The league members have wended their quiet way with no debates, entertainments. plays, or other excitements. Miss Kimball has been the guiding patron throughout the year. On rare occasions she has found it necessary to convene the league in special session. An era of especial neatness has always followed such meetings, although no program as to what would occur was ever posted beforehand, and never a girl would reveal the subject of Miss Kimball’s talks. The explanation may be that the society’s memlters arc very modest. Nevertheless, they have accomplished their aim of good house-keeping and hope to aspire to even higher things in the coming year.

Through the energy of our excellent musical director, Miss Moore, we have Ik-ch able to get together, this year, a larger number of students iu the old organization of "Glee Club" than has been possible for several years. It is almost impossible for one to meet the director without having infused into him some of the spirit of earnestness and enthusiasm which is so. characteristic of her. Working under such an in tin cnee.—the infant Glee Club of only a few members has grown to an organization of adult size, with an enrollment of seventy-five students. No organization can be successful unless governed by a code of rules strictly lived up to by the members of the associated body. Realizing this fact, the Glee Club was founded upon a constitution whose requirements must be fulfilled by each individual, or he is deprived of the privilege of membership. The officers of the club arc elected for the entire year. The advancement of the society was shown by its good judgment in the choice of officers to till these important positions.
In an inquisitive moment, with lack of forethought, you may Ik constrained to ask. “What are the benefits derived from membership in the Glee Club?" They are many; and it will be necessary to mention only a few of them, to have you continue the answers to your own satisfaction. First, there is the training in voice culture: second, acquiring the ability to read music at sight; third, ability to carry a part, in unison: fourth, familiarity with the great works of prominent artists, which should be a part of one’s musical education, and particularly of that of the teacher. The club has learned several beautiful choruses, among them "The Old Guard..........I'he Clang of the Forge." and the "Soldiers’ Chorus." But the great-
est success was the presentation oi "The Rose Maiden." All the hard work extended iu this world famous cantata was well repaid in the appreciative way the audience received our efforts. Altogether the work has progressed so satisfactorily this year that we feel well pleased with it and eagerly look forward to the new season’s Glee Club.

organizations, tin- Mandolin Club. Notwithstanding its few members it holds a unique place in our school. It strives not tor great fame, as do our orators or our debaters. Neither does it wrangle for superiority as do Phoenix and Philakean. or even Lyceum. It has a more tranquil spirit like that of Aletluan and Philologian. Being in harmony with all its sister organizations, the Mandolin Club can well serve them all. There is no debate, no contest, no reception, no play to which it cannot prow itself an agreeable supplement. How restful the music of some pleasant tune after the deep thought of an oration! What a relict are the merry notes of "lola," or "Dainty Dames." after the taxing arguments of an exciting debate. Would that the weekly rhetorical might sometimes Ik- thus enlivened. We have then a club, adverse to the interests of none, on the contrary ready to serve them all. its members calm and serene in the midst of excited society contests. So. here's to the Mandolin ( lub! May out old school never miss its sweets strains; may the society be as thriving in the future as it has been in the past, and may the friendships here formed endure forever.

The Quivers of past years have called attention to the fact that the Oratorical Association is the least known and the least appreciated organization in school, yet upon it depends all the success of the school in its work in oratory and debate with other schools.
To defray the expenses of the oratorical contest and the debates, a tax was levied in a meeting of the associate members. At that meeting it was voted to place the Stevens Point debate under the auspices of the association. It was the object of the members to take charge of the inter-society debates and declamatory contests as well but the lack of money prevented this from being carried out.
The .small number of candidates in the inter-state preliminary, made a change in the method of choosing the debaters necessary. Hut one contest was held, ami certainly one oi the strongest teams that ever represented this school was chosen. All arc veterans. Mr. Lewis, of many inter-society debates, and Mr. Karnes and Mr. Richards, of the Stevens Point debate of last year.
The Stevens Point debate aroused a good deal of interest among the Juniors entered in the contest. Mr. Wells. Miss Rohltnan, and Mr. Tinker were selected by the judges. However. during the year, other duties prevented Mr. Tinker from taking his part and Miss Schufllebotham, the alternate, took his place. The team certainly did good work, as our victory on April nineteenth showed.

The Whitewater Content
About twenty Oshkosh braves left for Whitewater on the afternoon of the fourteenth of March ready for scalps and victory. In Waukesha there was a wait of about an hour and the company went out to explore the town, looking for the library in true literary style and running on to pre-historic mounds and mud. Whitewater was reached about ten o’clock and all the Whitewater students were there to greet them with songs, yells, and music. The young women were entertained at private homes, and the young men were taken to a hotel. The next morning all went to visit the school at morning exercises, where President Halsey was called on to talk. The school songs sung by the Whitewater students were excellent. The forenoon was spent in visiting classes. In the afternoon the delegations from other schools came in. and there was a general assemblage of the visitors and students in the assembly room. Speeches, songs, and yells took up the afternoon. The contest and the orations have already been made famous in Tiie Advance, which published the contest number.
The next morning the Oshkosh. Superior, and Stevens Point delegations came home on the same train. At Waukesha. Carrol College was visited, where Mr. Goddard showed the Oshkosh students over the college. Oshkosh was reached in the afternoon, where the tired party made haste to get to the Normal in time to see the Normal versus the High School Faculty game.

And only members of faculty Can get out by use of key.
It is by their most wise decree That we to this subjected must be.
For they have deemed that our good health Is better far than all the wealth Of knowledge which we might obtain Thru thirty minutes study gained.

If one were to look for a history of the Normal. it organizations and victories, the Quiver would he such a record. Since 1X07 the school has published an annual record of its doings. As the school has grown in size, in departments, and in the activities of student life, the Oliver has also grown since its first issue. Again, the Juniors have tailored and spent time and energy to produce a work that shall he worthy of the school and of the class. It is the hope of the staff and the class that the Quiver of i«x 7 is one that conies up to the high standard set hy the preceding classes.

The Oshkosh Normal School, always a leader among the Normal Schools of the state in adopting and bringing out new ideas, was the first Normal School in the state to publish a school journal and a school annual.
The first issue of The Normal Advance was published in September. ifk 4. under the management of the Faculty, with Miss Henderson as editor-in-chief, and Mr. Hewitt as business manager. The new venture proved a success from l»oth a literary ami a financial view point. When, after two years, the management of the journal was given over to the student • body, it was on a sound financial basis, having a nest egg of one hundred dollars placed to its credit in one of the local banks. F.ach succeeding year the staff has striven to hold the journal up to the high standard of literary excellence and financial prosperity established by the Faculty management.
The Advance is a students' journal published in the interests of the student body. It represents the spirit ami ideals of the school. Like all journals of the kind, its success is directly proportional to the interest and effort put into it by its supporters. They make of it either a glowing success or a dismal failure.
Under the present management the memliers of the staff are chosen from the Senior class. The outgoing staff leave the journal in a prosperous condition, and ln-spcak for the incoming management the hearty support of the student body in making the edition of 1007-8 the best in the history of The Advance.
107The Student’s Hand Book
When a student enters the Normal he is thrown into a new environment. The many unfamiliar faces, the multiplicity of rooms, the strangeness of it all. bewilder him, A “Hand-Book" i given him. Looking it over, he finds a list of rooms to rent, a map of the portion of the city in which he must live and work, a list of lioarding clubs, and other hints and helps. By its aid lie gains more information than a single person could give him. The “Hand-Book" is consulted by students and the Faculty alike. The constitutions of the greater organizations of the school, railroad time tables, fares and distances, scltool songs and yells, “Hints to Happiness,” and other needful information fill its pages. It is a most valuable little book.
Just a pail of water.
And a box of paint:
Just a pound of patience.
Never tired or faint.
Just a bit of sunshine.
In a cloudless sky;
Just a week of waiting.
Till the colors dry.
Just a strip of meadow.
Better green, not blue ;
Just some trees in the distance. Be careful what they do.
Just a little pondering.
Why the colors run;
Just a doubt as what it is. When you’re done.

With the close of last year's Athletics, the Faculty committee took a decided stand against the policy usually employed by the association of spending money first, and getting it afterwards. Their code was as follows: “No money, no athletics." A Ways and Means committee was appointed and they devised the following plan: Each mendier of the school was called upon to contribute the sum of one dollar, and in return each contributor received a ticket admitting him to all contests held under the auspices of the Athletic Association. Thus enough money was got to almost carry the association through the year. It at least ensured another successful year for Athletics in the Oshkosh Normal School.
The association was unusually strong this year. Each branch of Athletics was headed by a competent manager, who did much for his department.
It was with much misgiving that the school watched Professor Coolidge leave for Detroit. For four years he had directed Athletics and he had done sonic very successful work. In his place, however, came Professor Vincent C. Poor, who took hold of the work with a vigor and self-reliance that have shown themselves during the entire year.
In many of the minor Colleges as well as the Universities trouble i being found in that the athletes of the school are athletes alone. The following list will show that the Oshkosh Normal athletes are also students, taking an equal interest in thing Literary:
Karnes. Richards, and Lewis, who compose the Illinois debating team, were all members of the iqo6 football team. Tinker, of the Junior debating team, was a menilicr of the t X 6 squad and captain of the 1906-7 basketball team. Nimtz. Wolf. Pitz, Birdsall. and Kell are all prominent in inter-society debates, oratory, and other activities of the school. Vclte. our orator in the Inter-Normal contest i a football and basketball player of sonic repute.Football practice began this year with more than usual spirit. Our new coach taught ns the first of the season the new plays which we used in most of our games. About thirty men tried for positions on the first and second teams. Of the 1005 team. Whitcomb. Oaanc. King. Richards. Kell. Karnes. Pitz. Birdsall. and Yeltc were back. Several High School men entered school. Nimtz of Grand Rapids. Hartley from Kaukatma, and Tinker from Hillsboro all three making the squad. Besides these, several of the 1905 reserve squad made good. Novitski and Wolf having both played substitute on previous teams.
Our first game with the local High School was lost, owing to the fact that our team was playing together for the first time, and several of our men were playing positions which they were not modified to fill. The game served to wake up the coach and captain. Some of the men were shifted, others substituted. By the next week a much better team lined up against our friends from Ripon. The rest of the season the team played well. The only game which can he found fault with was the one played at Stevens Point. After defeating them by a big score on our home grounds, the team was over-confident and showed lack of practice. They were therefore unprepared for the brace the Stevens Pointers had taken. Two of our best games were played away from home, the one with Carroll being the best. The following week an excellent game was played with Lake Forrest, and altho we were beaten, we played a game of which no Xormalite need be ashamed. Our last game out of town was with Ripon. The collegians had advertised a practice game, and they certainly got it. If luck hail not been against us in that game we should have had the championship. With the ball on the five-yard line a fumble prevented us from getting a touchdown, and again a blocked punt resulted in Ripon’s only score. We finished the season with a game with Northwestern University. This was a very satisfactory game for us. although it was played on a very muddy field.
These facts, together with the interest in the game shown by the student body, show us that one more football season has been a success. Although we did not win the state championship. we succeeded in holding the champions to a o to o score in one gamee and a 5 to o score in the other. We therefore will have to be content with second place this year, but next year, with Nimtz for captain and Novitski, Birdsall. l inker. Wolf, and Pit , back in school we shall not be content with second place.
A second football team is a necessity in order to develop a good first team, and the work of the second team this year merits special praise. Although defeated several times, they were faithful to the end. coming out every night to give the first team practice, even after their schedule was completed. Some of the men will make excellent material for next year’s team. Uclmcti should make a strong fight for guard. Koelm. Coggins. Nolan (’captain). Phelan. Meyer. Arnold. Anklam. and Voss deserve special mention for their work.

£ % s 3 £ % s' $ 3' 3’ $• 3 £ gSecond Foot Ball TeamBasket Ball is without doubt the most popular branch of Normal athletics. A class tournament for the boys was arranged and the interest and class spirit shown were excellent. Altho the first team did not win many games, good material was developed and it therefore cannot be deemed a failure. The first team was composed of comparatively new men— Nimtz and l inker being the only ones with experience. Besides this the men in school were changing all the time, so that twelve different men have played on the team during the season. This fact explains the results of the season better than anything else.
The class tournament developed some very g d players. Delaney, '08. at center, showed up well and should make a strong tight for the first leant next year. (I. Wolf. 07. though not as fast as Delaney, was probably the next best center. Daley, To. and Wulk, ’08. showed up well at forward. Wulk plays the lloor well and Daley can throw the ball in if he gels hold of it. Wolf. To, and Lewis, 07. deserve special mention. Both have done a great deal for their teams. Case, ’09. and McDonald. ‘09. are probably the best guards, with Prior, ’08, Dess-lock. '07. and Sladky. To. following close. With these men to recruit from and all the first team men back in school, our prospects for next year are good, and we ought to make a little better showing.
Several very enjoyable trips were taken this year. Portage, Lawrence University. at Appleton. Stevens Point. New London, and Neenah were all visited.
Next year, with a trip south to Beloit and Carroll in sight, we shall have something to work for. Our intentions are to do the same thing to Beloit on that trip that we did to her here.

121Faculty Basket Ball Team
The Faculty-Senior game this year was more interesting than ever. The Seniors had things pretty much their own way the first half, but the second half the Faculty took a brace and front the lteginning of the second half there was never a difference of more than three points in the score. Wolf and Lewis did the l est work for the Seniors. 1’roles-or Clemens. Coach 1’oor and President Halsey did the l est work for the Faculty.
The game started rather late in the evening owing to the fact that Captain Wolf of the Seniors was unavoidably detained on his way to the gymnasium. The Seniors, however, a| ologized to the audience for keeping them waiting for the game to begin.
The line-up was as follows:

M COY KLEINSCHMIDT (Manager)
It was a serious question at the Itcginning of last season whether track athletics would materialize. Funds were scarce and the Faculty committee on athletics took a decided stand against the usual policy of running up debts; but the men of the school pledged themselves to support a track team. Then Manager Kleinschmidt “got busy.” The first thing he did was to secure from a number of the local merchants prizes to the value of seventy dollars, to lie given to winners of events in the class meet. Then he began to go the rounds among the men. telling each one what lie thought he could do the last in, until lie had each one imagining himself the l est athlete in school. As a reward for his hard work, the campus was daily thronged with those desirous of entering the lists for their respective classes.
On May 3. the Inter-Class meet was held. The event was an improvement over previous ones, as a greater numlter of men were entered. Although no records were broken, several events were very good. The classes finished in the following order: Seniors first with 68 points. Freshmen second with 16 points, the Specials finished a close third with 14 points, the Juniors finished fourth with 9 points, and the Sophomores last with 6 points Keefe of the Seniors was the "Star" of the meet, winning a total of 37 |»oints for his team.
Later in the season dual meets were held with Kipon and St. John's Military Academy. In both meets we were defeated; in the first by a score of 46 to 79.
TRACK WORK FOR 1907
The track work of this year has been greatly delayed on account of the weather. Three meets had been scheduled by Manager Kleinschmidt for the 1907 season. Ripon. the Class Meet, and Stevens Point. The first, with Ripon. resulted in a defeat for Oshkosh. Hartley did the best work for Oshkosh. Indications are that all the track work for this year will be discontinued with the exception of the Class Meet.
1231906 Track TeamOn March 12. a base hall meet inn was held in Mr. Hewitt’s room. Emmet Doyle was elected captain for the ensuing season. A city league has been formed, composed of eight teams, and one of the strongest of these teams is the Normal team. Six of last year's men arc hack at school, and there is a wealth of new material. Doyle is the best pitcher. Daley and rumor arc good. Voss and O'Harrow arc doing excellent work as catchers, as well as Karnes of last year's team. Meyer and Wulk, two star players of the Marion team, and Morrissey, play as basemen. Wolf is a good short stop; Martin. Trojahn and Voss arc excellent men as fielders. Lewis. Peterson ami Johannes are also good players. Besides the league games, several outside games have been scheduled. We met defeat at Appleton on May 11 at the hands of Lawrence. The first four games played in the league resulted in victory for the Normals.

129The Oshkosh Normal
At a meeting of the Board »f Regents of Normal Schools in 1868, arrangements were made for procuring plans for a Normal School to he located at Oshkosh. The building was completed in 1X70. hut for lack of funds to furnish it and pay salaries, the opening was delayed one year.
I he original structure resembled in size and shape the modern ward school. It comprised what is now the Ladies Study, from the door of the auditorium to the second library, and corresponding first and third floors. Originally there were four rooms off the Ladies Study, which was then the Assembly Room, those which arc now the English and the Latin rooms, and two on the north side of the Study. The desks then faced the north instead of the cast, as they do now.
At the opening of the school there were only six teachers in the Normal department, two in the Training department, and a director of music and drawing in the grades. George Sumner Aline was the first president of the school, which position he held until his death. During the twenty-seven years of his administration, the school advanced steadily and increased rapidly in efficiency.
Certain methods ami customs in vogue during the early history of the school are interesting. Morning exercises were opened by a song. The president then read a chapter, not from a book of ethics, but front the Bible. This was followed by a prayer, responsive reading and a hymn, after which he gave such advice as he thot particularly adapted to the needs of young people.
Then, as now. there was a system of self-government which is of special interest in that each student was a reporter, not of others, however, but of himself. Small blanks, similar to the well-known white slips, were furnished. Every Friday night each student wrote out a report of his conduct for the week, and placed it on file in the President’s office. These reports were each read by the President, who at a specified time confidentially talked to the student about his misdemeanor.
Just why this system was alxdished we do not know. Doubtless it was found insufficient to meet new demands. It was replaced by the more usual method of having one of the Faculty take charge of the Assembly Room at stated periods of the day. In 1896 was formulated the present plan of administration thru a students' council composed of representatives elected by each class.
The practice of having Faculty advisers for students was instituted some years ago in order to relieve the President as much as might be. How would it be possible for one to do now what requires thirty or more? But President Albee was father to all the students until his family became too large to advise each individually.
Until quite recently Friday afternoons were taken for rhetorical exercises. If the program did not fill the entire time the remainder was used for an old-fashioned spelling down. At such times the entire school were ranged around the room, and spelled until only the best spellers were left standing.
In the early history of the school there was no gymnasium. The students t« ok calisthenics. standing in the aisle of the study room. Imagine the Normal School now without its spirited class games of basket ball, the excitement of victories, and an occasioned request for funds to support athletics.
After a time the electric ! cll displaced the boy with the gong, and the stationer’s office, the pile of unsorted mail on the President's table.
Rapid increase in attendance not only called for constant changes, but for additional room. The first addition to the north now occupied by the Elocution and Mathematics rooms.
130and the library proper, was built in 1874 This was followed by tl e addition of the gymnasium and janitor's apartments in 1881. the present auditorium in 1893, and finally the cast wing, which was built a few years ago.
These changes were accompanied hv a revision of the curriculum, new courses were organized., consequently new mcmlicrs were added to the Faculty. Of the now thirty-five, the one longest associated with the school is Miss Swart, she living teacher in the Primary department when the school was organized, and has. with the exception of one year, been with the school ever since.
Professor Briggs began his work in the school nearly twenty-five years ago as instructor in bookkeeping and teacher and critic in the Grammar grades.
Miss Webster and Miss Clark were members of the first graduating class in 1875. The former has been teacher in the school since her graduation, and the latter since 1882.
When we look over the itemized expenses of the school we realize that the tate is by no means ungenerous in furnishing funds for educational purposes. In spite of the improve-ments already made, demands are constantly arising, and we are now asking for a new gymnasium, which has become almost an absolute necessity for the welfare of the student body. The increase in the number of students, the widened scope of the curriculum, the introduction of new methods and a higher standard of intellectual attainment, signify that the Oshkosh Normal is meeting the requirements of the times and steadily advancing.
Once upon a Time a Student graduated from the Normal Academy and asked. "How is the work at the Normal?" The first One answered. "O. Arithmetic is Fierce. It takes the Starch right out of you." Another said. "Hygiene i- hard enough to make you Work all the Time." His Heart sank, for he was Scared. But lie Imcked hard and burned the Midnight Oil. When the Quarter was over lie got 92. He said to himself. “It was not so Bad after all." "Wait until you get to Professional Knglish and Physics." said his Room-mate. ith trembling fingers he put these on his Program. But again he Crammed ami he did not Flunk. "I will not Listen to what others say is Hard." he said, and went on his Way rejoicing ever after.
Moral:—“Everything comes to him who grinds."
“All things come to those who wait” may be true sometimes; but like many other proverbs. fails when applied to Normal life. All things but credit come to those who wait.
The time is now! Whatever is left Of what might be done. Like a ghost of the night Will haunt you.
Why do you shirk
When you might as well work?
Then you could play.
Light and free as the day.
With no cares left behind you.
Down in the valley of Knownaught there lived a grandfather and his grandchild. Content. the old man toiled at his tasks, hut the daily round did not satisfy the young girl. She had attended assiduously the sessions of their little school, and had there obtained an inkling of something in the world lieyond: so she left her grandparent for a time to go to a school on an elevation called the school of Knowsuimnot. From here she occasionally felt little breezes from the higher hills cooling her brow and bringing a feeling of invigoration and larger outlook.
After completing the course at this school, however, she was still not satisfied. "Grandfather.” she said one day. "I should love to go to the school on the bill of Knowmore by the road to Algoma from which those delightful, invigorating breezes come.”
"Breezes, child," said the old man, "I want no breezes on my rheumatic limbs. This valley is cool enough nights." But at the end of the summer she had her way. and with the old urn set out for the distant hill.
Entering the halls of learning they were amazed at the numtier of young people also seeking an education. Kvery one appeared busy with his own concerns, but soon a youth, who seemed to have time at his disposal, came forward and undertook to guide the quaint couple. Having had three years' experience he found for the young girl a place in the ever lengthening line leading to the Treasurer's office, and then returned to help the old gentleman pass the time.
Leading him to a large room having a rostrum and reading desk at one end, he told him this was the place where his granddaughter would sit each morning listening to words of wisdom and experience. He then asked. "Have you heard of our new gymnasium? N'o? Well, we’re going to have one. and these pictures of buildings you see around the walls are representations which the different architects have submitted for approval for our new building. I think, myself, some of them arc rather too fussy looking to be useful. Well, now. come this way and I'll show you the place your granddaughter will go to get her lessons."
As they made their way through the crowded corridor the youth drew the attention of the aged one to a noble figure of a man throwing a disc. "This." Ik explained.” is the statue of one of our famous discus throwers. 1 )aane, who did excellent work, field day. in 1906." Then entering the study room he directed the old man's attention to the statuary there. "This bust at the left is that of Margaret Curtis, who received so many Honorable Mentions that her head was turned. The one over this door in the helmet and robe represents Vashti Skidmore. noted for her stateliness and wisdom. This is the garb adopted bv the young women who attended the Normal dances. They always came provided with their own sticks lest there should not Ik enough men to go round.
"The bas-reliefs arc likcnccsses of some our sportive maidens. Virginia Dickinson. Ellen Neale. May Manion, Helen Everson, and Marjorie Toner. They had so much spring and life in them that their teachers always felt they were ready to join hands and float away.
" The next is our famous basket ball player. Katherine Barr, who was so maimed at the end of the season that it is doubtful if die can take up the profession of teaching: and the next, pointing to a large, grave head, "is the bust of Agnes Hand, for though a merry girl at heart, she had from her youth up an expression of gravity unsurpassed by any Normal teacher.
"This modest maiden over the door i - Nellie Walsh, whose retiring ways always suggested her disappearance.
"And now, sir. notice these two large pictures. The one at the left represents a poor student appearing before the self-government council owing to the unfortunate circumstance of
132having received three corrections during one quarter. Ilis shame is so great that he is permitted to swathe hi- face, as you see represented here. The companion picture represents our oldest Professor welcoming a new student and introducing her to the group of which he is the family adviser.
"The bust you see on the pedestal is that of our orator. Velte, who, though not the winning orator this year, did so well that the students quarrel as to which study room the bust shall belong. He sat for that bust just after a class scrimmage in which his coat was torn to shreds, so he had to don the garb in which you see him.”
The old man had listened in silence to all this information, and as the youth paused, asked. "And are you not represented in any way? Your time will come next year, you say? Well. 1 have heard that some place in this building they have a collection of butterflies and hugs. If I had one of those butterflies here 1 could give the artist who will make your bust a good sample for the length of your tongue,” and then turning to his granddaughter who had just come up, "My dear, if when you finish this school you know half as much as this young man. we shall have to change the name of our valley from Knownaught to Knowitall.”
Once upon a time in the spring of i«x-7. B. C.. a Spring Poet went forth to make use of his Daily Theme Kye. The Air was Palmy and Sweet, the Grass was as Green as that on the Souvenir postal cards issued in the reign of Theodore with the Teeth, the Sky was as Pine as Wiggle Stick Bluing, the Robins were singing, the Children were playing Marbles and skipping Rope. The Poet, dressed in his Spring Suit, wandered Ten Leagues along Rural Route No. The Spring Unrest moved him and he wrote in his Patent Loose Leaf Book of Parchment:
As he wrote the Wind changed and roared with tremendous Unction. Clouds without Lining or Buttonholes covered the Sky. and snowflakes the size of Ice Cream Cones fell. The Poet began to Shiver and wrapjted his Coat al out him and started for the Woods. Put the Snow and the Rain came down and the Wind beat about the Push so that he liecame uncomfortable and plodded his Way to the City.
As he took ginger tea he said. "One Swallow docs not make a Summer.”
"Music hath soothing charms." can hardly be true of the music at the Normal, else we would have no giggling and whispering in morning exercises.
"O gentle Spring, when Robins sing. And Rumble Pecs arc on the wing.”
There is a big fellow named Karnes Who debates and to football quite warms; Ever ready is he To sing with great glee Ami a really good fellow is Karnes.
133The Old Bowman House
The following recollections are of a house not so widely known, perhaps, as the home of Shakespeare. Milton. Scott, or Byron, hut of one which i as sacred to those connected with it as the birthplace of a poet is to his people.
One hundred forty-four Klin St. This is a number that brings pleasant memories to many that have gone from their beloved Alma Mater to wider fields of work. In the later ’8os of the past century it was owned by Elisha Bowman, a son of New England, a worthy Vermonter, a landlord of the type that Jane Addants or Jacob Riis would approve. He not only knew his tenants personally, but showed an individual fatherly interest in their present and future welfare. The “Old Bowman House" with its nine apartments was in reality two old houses put together. Here were sheltered, from twenty to twenty-five students. These were for the most part girls who boarded themselves. However, at various times boys under the care of their big sisters ventured to live under its roof.
The residents of this house differed considerably in their mental ability, attainments, general intelligence, vital energy, and capacity to rise. Some were girls of strong personal character whose purposes were clearly defined. They entered the Oshkosh Normal School because they intended to become teachers of the highest type that their possibilities would permit. They were not sent there, neither did thy drift there. Every contact with their new environment tended to expand their natures. They gained inspiration from school and from home surroundings, and they gave it to all with whom they came in contact. Then there were the timid girls, with good intentions, whose purposes were not clearly defined. They were shy and easily confused by the new environment. They had trouble in understanding their programs: they would get lost in the building: they were bcnumlved in recitation; and many were the talcs of woe that these girls related to the sympathising members of their house hold. Besides these, there were the jolly, happy-hearted girls who t x k things as they came, and got the fun obtainable out of everything.
Such as a rule were the occupants of the “Old Bowman House." Whoever they were, they departed from 144 with memories of many a good time and many an hour of hard work. There were always enough old students left to welcome the new: and the newcomer’s first impression was that every otic she met had a kindly interest in her. The first manifestation of this was an invitation to tea or dinner from Mrs. Bowman, who took the opportunity of introducing her to one or two of the "older, steadier" girls of the house. They in turn introduced her to others as occasion offered.
One hundred forty-four was famous for its hospitality. No one was ever turned from its doors hungry, though the impromptu lunch often consisted only of large and generous slices of bread and butter. The one who partook of its hospitality considered the lunches so good that he desired the bread cut lengthwise of the loaf, that the slices might be even larger, and at last he carried away with him one of the girls, that he might always have lunches of bread and butter. Many a royal banquet was served on a long table made by placing a numluT of smaller ones together, at which table linen and dishes were often scarce and room for guests scant, but the fried potatoes were plentiful ami the company was gay, though there might be exams, on the morrow.
One hundred forty-four was old and time-worn when the writer first had the good fortune to become acquainted with it. 'The paint on its exterior, once white, was dingy from many snows and much sunshine. Its floors were uneven and it boasted no cellar: but was proud of its common washroom at the rear, where each girl was privileged to do as much laundry work as she pleased. Each apartment consisted of a large living room, pantry, bed room and closet. 'The windows, which were large and loose in the frames, gave not only an abundance of light.
134but fresh air as well. The roomers carried in their own wood from sheds at the hack of the house, and built their own fires in small cook stoves that were provided for them. The girl who sits in her furnace warmed room ami walks across the street for her meals, may smile at the hardships of 144: but she can never have the pleasures of the parties there gathered about the bright firelight.
Looking back at the life lived there so many years ago. the writer is impressed with its beauty of spirit and elevation of tone. The "Old Bowman Mouse" will always recall a group of students who shared with each other the sorrow of temporary defeat and the triumph of hard won victories. In the school we were taught how to study and how to teach. In the "Bowman Mouse" we learned how to live. In l oth we learned what daily life is constantly verifying, viz., that excellence in anything can only be purchased by strenuous effort and serious sacrifice.
The new building that has taken the place of the old 144. resplendent in it newness and glistening white paint, can never send forth from its doors more willing and able hands to help in the world’s work.

Do you ever think of "Time’’ as a just, expert Cashier,
Who faithfully books the loan of life you’re granted here.
Who works for the "Master of Masters." not of paltry gold.
But of all the Centuries that over the world have rolled,
And will over onward roll till God in his might and right Shall require of all. Mis loan; and they pass into Death’s might?
'Tis a task that never ends, that Cashier l ime has to do— Balance up a splendid life; make a loan to one that's new;
Grant a lease of future time, to a sick one that get" well;
Mere a bill for squandered days; there a mortgage on life's spell; Never resting, never tired: always with a page that's fair;
Careful of each figure placed that at last on lives must bear.
' Birds of a feather flock together." This we can disprove by direct evidence. We see every day a Mann and a Lyon conversing on the pleasantest terms possible; while a Shop herdson and a Wolf arc not known to have any serious disagreement.
There is a fine fellow called Dave Who with the world is exceedingly brave; In football lie’s great.
Likewise in debate.
We are all proud of this Dave.
Again the race of gods lias come to earth.
And reigns on Mount Olympus. But. ah. how changed.
The care of man has weighed too heavily upon their nohle brows. nd few are they whose matchless might and power Are such as to withstand the ravages of Time.
Weary with the dark and bloody deeds That mortal man was prone to do,
A council they had held, and then with wondrous grace Gave up their weary life, and donned the tutor’s gown.
Man should no more grope in blind despair.
For they would teach! And so we have them here.
In glorious power, Jove still retains his kingship.
But kindness is his rule, and justice all in all.
The Trojan War has taught him thus to rule,
And now all mortals love him here at school.
When 'round the mount, when morning praise is sung. Confusion rushes wild. Great Jupiter has but to raise his voice And all the world is still.
And Juno—would you hear of her?
She's still her queenly self.
Great cares have taught her self-control Ami now no more can Discord vex her soul.
Serene and beautiful, dressed all in silver grey.
Her white hair sheds a halo ’round her head,
Sweetly there she stands, and teaches men and maids
To weave strong webs of rainbow sheen
With warp of words, and woof of gracious thought.
Where's our sweet goddess of the chase—Diana?
On her fair brow. Time no line can trace.
Merrily as before, hung high aloft in her chamber, the Moon, With clouds for horses and the breeze for driver.
She drove swiftly athwart the fbx r of heaven.
Among us she fleets and with her strong white hands She beckons us to drink a full, deep draught Of vigor ami of health.
Prometheus! thou didst suffer many years For thy great gift to man. N et still, unbound.
Thy mercy doth not tire. Great are these principles.
Wrung from Olympus’ heights, that thou dost bring us.
Thou teachest us to rightly estimate our lives—
To seek for truth, to judge all men aright.
136Now think, will you. of all the countless years
King Neptune sat and gazed with half dosed eyes
On ocean, his domain, where were deep sunk
In waveless tides, great streams of life from moon and stars.
He studied all. he learned at last what fixed
The planets in the hcav'n—and in his eyes
The depth, the color was reflected.
At last, with one great sigh he tore himself away And patiently his task, assigned hy Jove begun;
What teaches he? The lessons that he stored Thru ages lost in thought and contemplation.
Rut never have those eyes, so long companion To the sea, quite lost their depth, their love.
Our friend, our "Sage" is he.
Oh, Musa! would that thou mightst sing today In thousand strains, the praise of all the gods,—
Of Graces three, "Dame Musica.” and Art
And Poesy; of Ceres, Mother who
Teaches us Arithmetic; and Cupid, quite grown up.
Now come to he our German master.
Thou wouldst sing a mountful strain
For reformed Bacchus, sweetest of all the Olympic host,
Now left our halls to teach in foreign lands.
Thou wouldst make the old halls ring again With shouts of mirth o’er Vulcan's jokes—
Inventor he, in olden days, Achilles’ shield.
For school, convenient globes, to teach Geography.
But, ah! to sing is not enough; the way Is hut to know, and thus to learn to love.
Come. come, and know the rest.
What hidden depths are theirs I cannot tell.
For ’tis a fragment of a mightier strain Which, tho unpenned. yet rises in sweet incense From the hearts of all the grateful student hand.
Once upon a Time there was an Association of Giants which perpetuated the Development of Strong Muscles, and they were called the Athletic Association. And they, too. needed the "Root of All Evil.” So they said, "Let each Student pay One Dollar and we will not ask for Cash again." And the Students and the Faculty did Spiel to Boost Athletics. And the Students promised—for would they not see All the Games on the Season lickct? It was an investment of One Hundred Per Cent. And there was plenty of money, so they decided to hold a County Fair. And there were to be Seen the most wondrous Monstrosities, and all was Free, for the Board of Athletics had Plenty of Cold Cash.
And the Students went to the Faculty Game and the Girls’ Game and said. "We shall have to Pay." But No—the Bland Door Keeper smiled and said, "It L I'nder the Auspices of the Association. It is Free.” For there was Plenty of the Vile Lucre.
137Experiences of a Junior
My Pear Uncle: Oshkosh. Wis., Nov. 20. 1906.
Can I hope that you will ever forgive my neglect in not writing to you after all the proof I have of your great interest in my school work? At present 1 ant getting along very well in my work, hut the first few days of Normal life were the bluest of blue days. I could never get a lesson that would satisfy any of the instructors, no matter how much I tried.
I soon got acquainted with the Juniors who were in my classes and those who lioarded at our club, hut beyond that it seemed a hopeless task. Those dignified personages hearing the title of "Senior" seemed far removed from ordinary mortals until the time of the Junior-Senior reception, when the Seniors entertained us most royally, and they have been our best friends since then.
The geography of the Normal building is complicated—a guide is almost essential. During the first week I got lost in trying to find the Observation room. Eventually 1 landed in a room in which a person of bones only was reposing in a glass case. I had heard that some students are worn to skin and hones at the Normal, but this person was only tones, so I think he must have taken the long course in Arithmetic. Now to avoid the fate of this person 1 -hall heed all the advice on personal hygiene given in Professional Gymnastics
Some of the blunders the Juniors make arc laughable. The day that we got our rostrum cards one of my friends was very anxious to know if a young lady sitting near her in the library liael been favored with one. and so finally inquired. The young lady quietly replied that she mas a member of the Faculty. It was Miss Bowman.
New students soon learn that the library is for study and how to take pro|K-r care of b«H ks. for Miss Parmele is the guardian of that domain. I have certainly learned one thing that I shall not soon forget, namely, that two thin sheets of paper are apt to break the binding of a book. This bit of information was directed to me personally. Another good thing we leant in the library is not to forget. One of my friends took in a l»ook she forgot; Miss Parmele said. “Five cents for forgetting.”
You know we have often heard that at the Oshkosh Normal the Faculty sit enthroned as gods and goddesses and "ne’er from their station descend," but 1 am beginning to realize the falsity of this statement. After Mr. Hewitt’s reception to the Juniors he liccame our especial friend, and we never enjoyed an evening of amusement more than wc did that one. President Halsey’s advice about how to cure homesickness proved he had our best interests at heart, and the deep gulf between the President of the Normal and the timid Juniors was bridged over.
Miss Henderson is a dignified woman who knows all atom Rhetoric. After being in her class for a time, everyone must recognize the great influence she has on him and the untiring way in which she tries to bring each student’s work in Rhetoric up to her high standard of excellence. We have decided that her requirements are sometimes pretty stiff, but she holds everyone responsible for all the work assigned, ami in all things she is eminently just.
Occasionally we do get strange bits of advice. Miss Webster advises young ladies to wear long sleeves whin short ones are the fashion. Miss Moore in her music classes, advises people to find their own "do"—just as tho the Faculty were in the habit of furnishing it! Mr. Tret lien advises us not to eat pancakes, because he says "a pancake breakfast produces a pancake thought.” Another instructor tells us that actions speak louder than words. Then, surdy, Mr. Clow wants us to wear tan shoes and Mr. Mitchell wants us to say we go "hiking up the street" and "the air goes scooting up the chimney."
By this time you must have concluded 1 have lived up to my record of talking, but I am going to conclude now by wishing you success in your new business.
Your loving niece, Clara.
138A Small AJfair
It was a hazy, dreamy night in October—such a night as would appear to the heart of any Normalite. especially a Senior young woman. The moon shone at it' full. As its beams fell upon the Normal campus and immediate vicinity, it disclosed not a city sleeping in perfect quiet, but a scene whose solitude was broken by the muffled thread of human feet and the whispered murmur of human voices. It was evident that these were the steps and accents of Nonnalitcs. They were going toward the old building, there to hear the wonders of Japan breathed by the eloquent Dr. Kuma.
By 7:45 the auditorium was filled nearly to it' limit; and the audience were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the learned speaker. Suddenly a hush fell over the assembled throng. All inquisitive heads were turned to see a young man and young woman just entering. Gracefully they followed the usher up the aisle and were conducted to a seat.. How brilliantly the lights shone upon this dark-eved maiden and her gallant escort. After all eyes had feasted on them sufficiently, the faces were once more turned to the front: and the thoughts of all again were on the coming speaker. The young man seemed relieved, lie was not capable of withstanding the gaze of that multitude. But scarcely had he breathed a sigh of relief when he began nervously fumbling in his pockets. After a diligent search through every part of his wearing apparel, he was convinced that his handkerchief was not there. He had left it in his great-coat in the corridor, l.ike a true knight he explained the situation to his dark-eyed lady. After the most pleading excuses and full assurances of hi' hasty return. he gained permission to leave her side in search oi the lo't article. Again a hush fell over the crowd, and all eyes were turned upon him a' he left his seat and made his way alone toward the door. All curious minds were busy contriving the reason of his departure. But soon lie returned, a beaming smile on his face, liearing in his hand the handkerchief, lie was greatly agitated with that sea of faces resting upon him; but summoning all his dignity and self-possession, he marched boldly forward.
Whether from the cinbarassment of his position or in defiance to the inquisitive gaze of the people, will never Ik- known; but with a dignified air he walked past his lady to an empty seat beside a fair-haired, blue-eyed Junior young woman. He was. no doubt, inwardly thanking himself that he was at last back to his place and no longer the object of disturbance. Booking up to assure himself of this he met myriads of eyes, lie was the very center of the most awful amazement and wonderment. "What have I done? Why are they staring at me? he asked him-self. In dismay he turned to his dark-eyed lady; but behold, she had changed to one of the fairer type. He turned about despairingly; and there, just behind him. with an empty scat beside her, was his dark-eyed lady. Her usually calm eyes were now shooting stony glances at hint. Abashed, humiliated, he rose and took his place beside her. feeling himself a small man indeed.

139I he Indian Village
Many, many moons ago. it came to pass that a strong and mighty nation ln-gan to flourish. The smoke of their camp-fires could he seen issuing from the wigwams in the village, the Oshkosh Normal School. Here the warriors met for advice and consultation with the great chiefs and leaders who guided their followers in the paths of truth, learning, and light. Here, too. they dwelt for a period of four years, learning the secret to success and preparing themselves so that they would Ik- able In-tter to instruct those around them to grow up stronger warriors. This nation was made up of four tribes. each triln- graded according to its ahility and attainment. The youngest and weakest among them, which as yet had only learned to tread in awe and fear through the great foot-paths of their villages, were known as the Freshmen. The Sophomores, thru the counsel and experiences of their worthy predecessors the Juniors, were more versed in the arts which were to make them the bravest and strongest of the warriors. The Seniors, mightiest among the tribes, had earned the seat of honor and were looked up to and esteemed by all the triln-s. To them, after four years of toil, were given the approval of their great teachers and they were sent out into the world to become "teachers of men."
And over all these tribes, the Great Spirit, their President, reigned, and the influence of his presence was beautiful to see! Each tribe vied to do his bidding. No task was too hard, no trial too severe if their Great Spirit wished them to do it. And in this mighty village, aiding the Great Spirit in his work and teaching, the warriors how to become strong in the arts of learning, dwelt other masters. Walking in their midst, living with them, breathing their influence upon them, these warriors mastered the difficulties of Rhetoric, History. Psychology, and Practice. From the north and south came winds bearing upon their breezes Music and Drawing. Here the warrior- learned how to reason out the wonders around them, and when their four years had passed they were able to go out and teach younger generations how to grow tip to be stronger warriors than they themselves had been. Thus these warriors, the children of the Great Spirit, grew in strength and power till their nation was feared and respected by all nations in the land. And well might the people of this nation Ik- called warriors, for many and fierce were the battles that they fought. Continually, the dreaded |H--ts. "examinations," had to be conquered and held in subjection. Wars, severe and cruel, were waged with the monsters. “Mental Arithmetic" and "Spelling." sometimes the unhappy victims being forced to become slaves to these tyrants for three days a week. Nor were these the only things which troubled the warriors and caused them pain, for an evil spirit haunted the wigwams and if any of the braves were seen doing a careless thing or speaking without thinking, he would -lip a “report" in their hands. And whenever the evil spirit passed by the wigwams were filled with a death-like stillness. Again on Thursdays. "Rhetoricals" caused many a brave warrior’s heart to beat faster and checek grow paler, but even all these things were easily forgotten in joy and happiness that came from living in the village of the Oshkosh Normal School.
The children of the Great Spirit worshipped strength and beauty. Among themselves they delighted in all games which would make them stronger and healthier. In basket ball, foe t ball, ami various other -ports of the day. the tribes contested against each other to prove each other’s strength. Put no greater pride filled the hearts of the tribes than when another nation from a distant land attempted to show their power and -kill. And even if they were defeated, which rarely happened, they were never cowards, for bravely they faced the foe. And when the month of June came with it- sunshine and roses, joy filled every wigwam, for then the trilK-s were again graded accordingly as they had prospered. Put none were happier than the Senior tribe, for to them was given the seal of their village and the privilege of teaching those around them the great lessons of life. And when this day in June came, the great village was filled with music and laughter and happy voices, a- each brave warrior left for the home of his people. And the Great Spirit smiled and was well pleased, for in each soul there was a new longing for higher ideals. Each heart was filled with inspiration which came from the teachings of those masters who aided the Great Spirit in his work. And thus these sturdy warriors left their village, the "Oshkosh Normal School." some to advance the work of civilization, others to return to complete their unfinished work. Put everywhere, the joy ami happiness that came to every one living in this grand village was easily seen, for each warrior vied with another to do honor and sing the praises of their village. "The Osh-ko-h Normal School."
140141The Social Whirl
The Excursion to Calumet
On SoptemWr i. the initial event of the year took place, when the members of the Faculty and the Students' Christian Association, gave the school an excursion across Lake Winnebago to Calumet Harl or. The afternoon was spent in rowing and other amusiuents until supper time, when each group met with its Faculty adviser and ate their lunch, to which each had contributed, in regular picnic style. The new students had a splendid opportunity to become acquainted with their teachers and the older members of the school, thus adding to the pleasure of the occasion. The few drops of rain that fell during the homeward trip were not sufficient to dampen the spirits of the Normalitcs. who will long remember this excursion as one of the most enjoyable events of the year.
The Junior Reception
Professor Hewitt seems to know just when to touch the heart of a student most effectively. whether it be in the sale of Senior class honors or the consolation of the Juniors after the spelling tost. The Juniors will not soon forget the pleasant evening spent at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hewitt in September, when, though tired, discouraged and homesick, their troubles vanished through the kind hospitality of their host and hostess. During the evening President Halsey gave an interesting talk on homesickness, and suggested cures for the same Miss Gillette. President of the Senior class, encouraged the inexperienced from the standpoint of the experienced, and our own President. Mr. Wells, gave us his ideas on the subject. After a social hour we gathered around the piano and sang the old. familiar songs, closing with the sweet strains of “Home, Sweet Home.”
The annual Alethean reception to new students and lady members of the Faculty was given September 22. The music room was decorated with the Alethean colors, red and white. A musical program was given by members of the society, assisted by Miss Moore and Miss Morgan.
The Normal Dances
The first of the series of dancing parties was given on Saturday evening, October 6. in honor of the foot hall team from the Stevens Point Normal. The arrangements for the evening were in the hands of a student committee, assisted by the presidents of the literary societies and the Faculty committee. Music was furnished by the Arions.
The second of the series was given on Friday evening. November 23. Although these dances arc but a trial, being the first ever held in the Normal, their success thus far will no doubt make their existence permanent.Senior-Junior Reception
On Friday evening. October 19. the members of the Junior class and Faculty were pleasantly entertained by the Seniors at a conversation party given in the gymnasium. The guests were received by Miss Kimball, Miss Gillette, and Miss Harr.
The gymnasium was tastefully decorated with Japanese lanterns, banners, and ferns. Comfortable chairs, couches and cozy corners made the room very home-like. Merry groups engaged in five minute chats on such serious questions as "To Cram or N'ot to Cram." "Nursery Rhymes." and "My Latest Crush." which afforded much amusement and sincere pleasure. The Senior girls served light refreshments in the music room, which was prettily decorated with the class colors and Japanese lanterns. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The A let he an Play
A dramatization of Dickens’ story. "The Cricket on the Hearth," was presented by the Alcthcan Society Saturday evening, November to. The members of the cast interpreted their parts exceedingly well, and deserve much praise for the successful rendition of the play. 'Flic complete cast of characters was as follows:
Caleb Plummer, a toy maker..............Don Birdsall
John Perrybinglc, delivery man..........Morgan Davies
Tackleton. Caleb’s employer.............Arthur Anki.am
The Stranger. Caleb’s son...............Blair Hartley
Dot’s father............................ Gaylord Case
Dot. John’s wife........................Ethel Tower
Bertha. Caleb's daughter................Lulu French
Mrs. Fielding .........................Hazel Raw son
May Fielding..........................Lillian Jensen
Tilly Slowlmv. Dot’s servant............Bessie Wilson
Dot's Mother ...........................Frances Lockhart
The Spirit of the Cricket...............Grace Harrington
On Thanksgiving evening the two branches of the Students’ Christian Association joined forces and met those who were so unfortunate as to have to spend the day away from school, for a social time in the gymnasium. At the door each received a card with the name of an apple upon it. After finding eight others with the same name, the group thus formed wrote a rhyme about their particular apple. This afforded much amusement, as did also the initial guessing contest, and the charades. Those who were somewhat discouraged over their results were more than repaid when told that they might eat the apples which were the cause of their troubles, and also some doughnuts and fudges. This party was a complete success if for no other reason than that a number of students were made to feel less lonely and less homesick at a time when all hearts should be full of good cheer.
143A Colonial Party
One of the most unique receptions of the year was a colonial party at which the members of the Lyceum entertained the Phoenix society on the eve of Washington’s birthday. The part of Mr. Washington was well taken by Mr. Shepherdson in costume, that of Mrs. Washington bv Miss Plumb, and Mrs. Custis by Miss Mary Lyon. Many of the young ladies were dressed in colonial costumes.
As each guest entered a small hatchet with the name of a | crson or event in American History upon it. was pinned to his back. What these were was to be discovered by questioning each other. It would be difficult to decide which afforded the most amusement, the clipping of cherries front a tree, blindfolded, or the old fashioned "Singing School" conducted by Professor Fling. Several colonial games were played after refreshments were served. Every one had a most thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The County Pair
No student who attended the County Fair on Friday evening. March 8. is likely to forget what may well l c termed the most amusing event of the school year. The old gymnasium was transformed, and every one. students. Faculty, and visitors entered into the spirit of the occasion.
Ice cream cones, lemonade, candy, lunch, and school souvenirs were sold at prettily decorated l ooths. Everything from the "Five Legged Calf" to “The Missing Link" was there, as previously advertised. A very interesting as well as humorous program given by the "Faculty Minstrels” and members of the student body added much to the enjoyment of the evening. The Fair was a complete success from every standpoint, financially as well as socially. The proceeds, amounting to over one hundred dollars, went toward the support of the Athletic Association.
The Phoenix Play
Saturday evening. March 9. the Phoenix society presented the four-act play entitled. "The Club Friend.” or "The Fashionable Physician." to a large and appreciative audience in the auditorium. The development of the plot was interesting and contained sufficient humor to add to its enjoyment. The memlicrs of the cast and the society as a whole arc to be congratulated on the pleasing way in which the play was given. I he cast was as follows:
Stuyvesant Filbert .................... Grace Si-mucky
Abram Oaks ............................ Matthias Pita

On Saturday evening. May 4. the Phoenix society gave a banquet in honor of Miss Bold man. the Phoenician member of the Junior team. The other two members of the team. Mr. Wells and Miss Shuftlchoth.ini. the Philakean team who debated against Phoenix the night before, and several members of the Faculty were the guests of honor. Addresses and toasts were given by different persons, and all had an enjoyable time. It was. as President Halsey said, an indication of the cordial relations that exist between the societies of the school this year, ami which was to he hoped would continue so in the future.
The Junior Debate
The annual debate between the Oshkosh and the Stevens Point Normal was held at Oshkosh this year. Friday. April t ;. Mr. Clow's room had Ixen decorated and arranged for the use of the visiting debaters, and Miss Peake's for our visitors. Our visitors were welcomed by a delegation of the students and taken tip to their room, and the afternoon was spent in visiting in the school. After the debate, when our gallant Junior team had carried off the honors, a reception was held in Mr. Clow's room, where the debate was re-fought in a more cordial and bloodless way. The Stevens Point delegation left the same evening for home, and we ho|X with the feeling that Oshkosh i an opponent that knows how to entertain as well as debate.
The Social Whirl in the Spring Quarter
It is during the spring quarter that the social life of the school is most active. It is then that the different organizations having worked hard all winter feel the need of a vacation, and so banquet and boat rides are the order of the day. The greatest of these events is the annual Junior-Senior excursion across the lake. I bis year the trip was made to Clifton on June 1. Probably the Athletic Association, the German Circle. Phoenix and Lyceum Literary Societies have l oat rides again this year such as they have had in the past. The ladies of the Faculty gave the amusing comedy. “The Kleptomaniac.” The Philakean society held it annual banquet. Commencement will close the social events of the year. The annual reception of the President to the Faculty and Seniors, the Klemcntary reception and the Alumni banquet are features of this week. The Senior play this year. "The Mouse Trap" and “The Albany Depot." will he given the Tuesday evening of Commencement week.

Once upon a Time in the Oshkosh Normal there was an Organization, and it so happened that a meeting was to be held at One o’clock. The President thereof called the meeting for that Time. When Twelve-fifty-five came, every member was present, and the Meeting was over by One-ten. All the People went away rejoicing at such punctuality.

14(jIn the Same Old Way
riicrc arc some things 'bout the Normal That forever and a day,
Have been printed in "The Quiver"
In the same old way.
So we thought that we wouldn’t mention The thing' which we Mtppose, livery student's heard about And everybody knows.
l ake for instance Mitchell's cow.
And his skating rink.
Haven’t they 'bout lost their interest. Really “take a think."
And there’s that bag of Mr. Clow’s. Which has always been Joked about from year to year Till it's worn pretty thin.
Miss Peake still loves a dog.
Miss Apthorp likes a cat.
Professor Fling still lias some hair. There isn't much in that.
And Mr. Briggs is just the same As twenty years ago.
Don't believe it? Just ask the girls If it isn't so.
From time to time you've all heard tell Of one who never cares for men. And sad tale. too. ere this you’ve met
Somewhere of a Little Red Hen.

A Song of Confidence
I have inherited plenty of plans in Professional English: 1 shall not fail.
They allow me to lie down in sweet slumber: they preserve me from midnight study.
They restore my confidence: I can walk into class smiling and unafraid.
Yea, though 1 waste time in the Ladies' Study: I will not fear: even though I go to the Bijou I fear not.
They are the best that man can produce, they are good to look upon: my heart is full of joy. 1 can smile upon the Freshmen.
Surely. Tens and Excellents shall be my share all the coming quarter: and I shall dwell in the Temple of Learning and get my Sheepskin in the end.
148A Toast—The School Ma'am
The l.or l first made mothers, then, when lie realized the incompleteness of His task. I le made school ma’ams.
The school ma’am whose praises 1 wish to sink is not the one who marries young. For her, a gold watch, an organ, and a young man are her Alpha and Omega—the beginning and the end. Her prayer by day and her dream by night is a course in “Nature Study" with a life certificate before graduation. True it i . she may make a good wife and mother, but as a school ma’am we can no longer count her in the ranks, for she has made room for others hastening on. for others among which is:
The dyspeptic school ma’am, whose very look breathes forth disaster and gloom. Holmes very fittingly descril»es her as “a rather more than a middle-aged person with parchment forehead. and dry frisette shingling it, a sallow neck with a necklace of gold beads, a black dress too rusty for recent grief, and contour in bass riliiuo. "
This jK-rson I do not mean, nor do I wish to confer favor on her of the “pcp|R r fever," who dies into a passion at the slightest injury, real or imaginary. She says discouraging things and does disheartening things. Whenever her pupils are on the road to progress, they feel instinctively that she is sticking pins into them all the way. Of her. Tennyson says: “She is harsh as crabs." Spurgeon says of her: “She waters our miseries and hoes up our comforts." We feel that Klla Wheeler Wilcox is talking to this woman, when she says:
" Talk happiness, the world is sad enough Without your woes. No path is wholly rough.
Look for the places that are smooth and clear.
And speak of those who rest the weary ear Of earth, so hurt by one continuous strain Of human discontent and grief and pain."
No. this type of school ma'am is not meant, for. fidgety, nervous, and eccentric, she is a curse to herself and to all who come within the narrow circle of her influence. No, I repeat it, she deserves our praise no more than does the light-headed one in Saxe’s poem:
"Ah! what shall we say of one who walks In fields of flowers to choose the weeds?
Read authors of whom she never talks.
And talk of authors she never reads?
She’s a charming woman. I've heard it said Ily other women as light as she:
Hut all in vain I puzzle my head To find wherein the charm may be."
If Saxe ha«l written of all school mistresses he would have puzzled his head to find redeeming features in the precise one. who believes with Shakespeare: “I am nothing, if not critical." and who limes her speech so that every "articulation is like an clliow joint."
All these her (rills and foibles are, and more, too. but I come to:
The school ma’am I do mean, the one with faults, but with many excellent qualities of mind ami heart. You exclaim: “How can the profession keep this woman?" Did you ever hear the story of the boy on the rustic bridge? Well, there was such a boy, and he was watching the beautiful, white pond lilies float by u the stream. He waited for a perfect lily;
149hut when the last of the snowy array had floated by, he looked with regret upon a few that might have done. Do you see the application? If not. let us go to Browning for interpretation. In "Rabbi Ben Ezra," he says:
"Not that, amassing flowers.
Youth sighed. 'Which rose make ours.
Which lily leave, and then as liest recall?
Not that, admiring tars.
It yearned, 'nor Jove nor Mars;
Mine he figured flame which blends.
Transcends them all.’"
She may say: "Kate serves me meanly, but I looked at her and laughed." It has been said that the way to he beautiful without is to he beautiful within. And this is the fountain from which spring the virtues of this guide, philosopher, and friend of the children, of this womanly presence whose influence is unexpressed. To her the children go for solace, for they feel with the j oct:
"But thou wilt heal that broken heart Which, like the plants that throw Their fragrance from the wounded part.
Breathe sweetness out of woe."
But to be cheerful and kind is not her only mission, for she knows that:
"He that governs well, leads the blind;
But he that teaches gives him eves."
More could be said of this woman, more told of her silent influence, her calm demeanor, her moral courage. With the little children she holds undisputed sway; and youth, and even old age. sit at her feet and learn wisdom. How many of us have not conic under her beneficent influence? How many of us, as we look hack over our lives, cannot but feel that she is a powerful factor for good. Some say that she is feminizing the race. Sonic tell us that her mission is in the home. Fear not. More and more we need the sunshine oi this sweet and noble character. It her influence in the home is great, then in the school is it not even greater? Honest, impartial, earnest, and faithful, her life will leave its stamp on many, very many, who never knew a mother’s care.
And to this type of high purpose and sincere life, we how the head and bend the knee, for we feel:
"A people is hut the attempt of many To rise to the completer life of one;
And those who live as models for the masses Arc singly of more value than them all."
In the Oshkosh Normal there was once an Oratorical Association. It was a very Popular Organization, for All the Students belong to It. and supported It. And they needed Money. "For." said the Officers, "have we not a Debate with Stevens Point? Have xvc not a Great Team against Normal Illinois and. besides, there is Oratory! Let us lax the School Thirty-five Coppers." And they had a Mass Meeting in the Auditorium, where Great Spiels were made by the President and Others. And they All voted for the Tax and were pleased with themselves. And All the Students paid the l;irst Day so that it took Ten Ox-wagons to take the Cold Cash to the Bank. And they lived happily ever Afterwards.

Once there was a Basket Ball Team at the Oshkosh Normal, and they went on a trip to play Portage. And among them was a youth whose name was A. R. Xold. who was a faithful Player. And he thought unto himself, “I will go to the Train or. Time;” and so lie did. But the other Boys went to the wrong Depot, and this Faithful Boy went off alone to Portage. And when the time came to play he played all around them and made fifty-four Baskets. And all were astonished. When lie came Home he was Honored greatly by having his Name on the Bulletin Board signed by a Score of Students, who promised to pay a Dollar towards placing his Bust in the Gymnasium.

155To Make Wise Seniors
Procure some of the best products of the rural districts, usually fresh and green, and having them cut down to the youngest years possible proceed to put them into the Jack Pot. Mix in a little grammar, a pitiful of writing, and a liberal punch of gracefulness. Stir until capable of being moulded and receiving impressions from the hands of the Faculty. When the whole is thus mixed, brush it up with a new clothes brush and whip rapidly to the Normal. Leave here for al out four years. At the end of that time add a little dignity, some oil of consolation, and a few parting tears. Then cover the whole with two square feet of sheep-skin, when it will he ready for use. Cut into the shape of an ordinary mortal and serve as a Senior ready for a job.

HORRID DEED AT OSHKOSH
KAFU SALEM MURDERED!
G R EAT SENSATION I
Rostrum. April 31. 1907.—One of the most sensational crimes ever committed was committed on the Normal rostrum this morning when Arthur K. Fromm not ut in morning exercise- to the edification of all students present.
Everybody expected an awful calamity—and it came. Poor Kafusalem was sung—and murdered! The depravity of the age is shown by the fact that the audience cheered and showed hy it- applause that it approved of the act. So the young man went through the performance again. Is it not true that "Dementia Americana” is the Ruling Power of the United States?
O-hkosh. Wis.. April 31, IQ07.—A terrible murder was committed at the Normal School. The | oor victim was cruelly thrust into a cage twenty-four hours before the murder and was terribly frightened. He was taken from the cage and bound. The terrible chloroform was administered and the poor creature was horribly cut and mangled. Special correspondents of the Amerry Kan have been sent to investigate the crime. A special edition of our paper will have the full details. The latest reports say that the poor. unfortunate victim was Tom Feline—and luring a cat. of course nine lives were lost.NORMAL AMERRY KAN

Basement and Tunnel, April 31.—It is rumored in scientific circles at the Normal that Professor Sageardson. of the Physical and Astronomical Departments, and Prof. Mitchell, of the Geographical and Geological Departments. have perfected a most wonderful invention. According to the latest reports, it is an improvement on the slot machines of today. The two gentlemen were seen months ago inspecting all the slot machines, whereby gum and other articles of diet can be obtained, along Main street. This machine is said to Ik- better than all. It pours forth oil as did the rock pour forth water when struck by the staff of Moses: the staff needed in this ease is cold cash. It is said that the machine makes change with the accuracy of an adding machine. it is rumored that it will be on exhibition at the Great County Fair in the automobile department.

Waukesha. Vi .. April 31, 1907.—A geological party of students, while studying the soils, drainage, and the glacial action in this vicinity, came upon an Indian trail, which they followed. In following this through the wilderness they came upon a curious mound, grass covered and mysterious. An investigation was made. A' usual, various theories were formulated as to its existence past and present. I’he mystery was explained by a placard which said that this was a prehistoric mound.

Room K.. April 31. -Only the terrors of the IHack Hole of Calcutta can he compared with the horrors experienced by the Juniors tonight, locked in a dark dungeon, with the light of the pale moon sifting through the bars. Oaken doors were knocked at frantically. One young man hurled himself like a cannon hall at the door, only to have the loathsome sound of his body falling to the door sound like hollow mockery in a tomb. The women shrieked frantically! The hour for the contest of the Faculty and the Seniors was drawing near. Oh. the horror of meeting those triumphant faces when the door was to he opened by the Seniors! Brainstorm was the result. No hope was left. "Ah. who is there?" cried one. By a swift motion the window was opened and the passer-by hailed. It was Schrocdcr. the deliverer. The wire net was jerked off. and one by one the Juniors emerged from that terrible dungeon as rats escape from a hole. Triumphantly they went to the Gymnasium, where they awaited the game. All praise to Schrocdcr.

LIFE ON THE MOON
NOTED SCIENTIST PROVES THIS TO BE A FACT.
Special lo the A merry Kan.
Oshkosh. Wis., April 31. 1907.—Prof. Daniel Henry Sagcardson. of the Physical and s tronomical Department, and Dr. Harry Kelling. of the Biological Department, of the Farmers' Institute. after years of study, have concluded that the moon is inhabited. Their theory is that the moon is hollow and inhabited by cave men. who live upon the roots of gigantic fungi, which. Iiecausc of the absence of gravity, grow to the height of titty feet. This of course overthrows the theory that the moon is green cheese, supported bv the older philosophers. 'The ad Itoniittum theory that a man inhabits the terrestial apj endagc is also proved false by the discovery of these eminent scientists. It is a foregone conclusion that if there was such a man in the moon, he must have been a lunatic. A special edition of the Amerry Kan will be issued giving the new theory in full.NORMAL AMERRY KAN
SPORTS—LATEST IN ATHLETICS
THE JUNIORS WIN
April 31, 1907.- The Junior class has won. It i the winner of a series of hard fought games. The l:reshmen are heroes, hut the Juniors are gods; the Sophomore may be great players, hut the Juniors are better. Seniors may defeat the Faculty, and the Faculty the High School Faculty, and so on fitiilum, but the Juniors heat them all. Even though the Seniors may lock us up in Room K. and then sing songs about us in the Faculty “take off." we proudly point to our team and say, “There stand the heroes!"
Tremendous Contest of Brains vs. Brains
April .tl. 1907. -The game between the Faculties of the two most noted institutions in this city was a fine exhibition of sprinting, wrestling, with a good deal of basket ball as a side line. Two or three touchdowns were made which would have done honor to any foot ball team, but which the heartless umpire called "running with the ball." Wrestling was indulged in. The Normal Faculty was generous enough to make a basket for the High School; but Chemistry was the greatest of all the sciences that day. Its devotees made many a basket. Certainly if school spirit was ever shown it was there: both High School and Normals "rooted" to their heart’s content.
