PLATTEVILLE NORMAL SCHOOL
Eistmsy uf the otmal
In I866 there was begun in the old Platteville Academy the first
Normal school in Wisconsin. It had an enrollment of one-hundred-twelve
studentsg sixty in the Normal department, fourteen in the Preparatory and
thirty-eight in the Model school. With Prof. C. l-l. Allen as the first
president and a corps of five teachers, a class of' eight young men and
women was graduated that year.
With the growing demand for room and better equipment, such im-
provements were made, and during the years of 1866 to 1897 a total
amount of sixty-four thousand dollars was expended. But the time ca-me
when the old building no longer answered the needs of the school and
through the efforts of those most interested, appropriations amounting in
all to one hundred thirty-five thousand dollars were granted to erect a
modern building. Work was begun in the splendid new Normal in l907.
The year I909 finds the enrollment increased from one hundred
twelve to four hundred forty-six, with a corresponding increase in instruct-
orsg they now number twenty-three. In the forty three years of the
Normal's life there have been five presidents, the longest term served by
any one being sixteen years.
1 The history of the Normal has been one of growth not merely in the
number of students and teachers or in the modern equippments for work,
but a growth in the efficiency of every department. In this growth the
competent Amen who have led have played a large partg Dr. Mac Gregor,
during his long term as president, could scarcely have considered all in-
terests of the school more carefully than he has since that time, as resident
The Normal is rightfully proud of her twelve hundred alumnig among
them are many who have risen to prominence and many more who are
working quietly but earnestly in the field of education.
The new building offers many advantages which the old Normal could
not, and none more marked than those enjoyed in the Library and Manual
Training shops. The last department to be added was the Kindergarten
opened in l907. It is under skilled leadership and does most successful
Since V904 President W. Livingston has had direction of the
school. With the deep desire to lift the school to a high level, he has
worked constantly for its good, especially helping each individual to realize
lhe higher and better things in life. l-le has made the cares of the school
so much his own that his health has suffered.
May another year find the Platteville Normal, with President Living-
ston as leader and guide, continuing the work for which the school is known,
ever on toward the highest and best.

Who are we
In refering to the names and characteristics of the members of our
class we naturally begin at the "I-lead."i The class is made up of innocent
little lambs under the protection of a good "Shepherd," who permits noth-
ing to "lVlahr" th-eir pleasures while gamboling on the green.
Paulf'sDson, Chestlefsbson, Gibfsjson, Swenfsbson, Patterfsl
son, Bonf5sDson, Bonfsjson, WatC'sDson and Robertfslson are not
all sons by any means, neither is Waterman a man.
We always have Fruit at our social gatherings. When Reddy is
ready the whole class is endowed with a spirit of "Reddy-ness." Mother
Hubbard always goes to the cupboard when she seeks a bone of conten-
tion. Jeffry is always willing to meet Johnson fwith white kid glovesj
Commodore Perry is always on deck while a Sargent commands the
land forces. Vesperman tolls the evening bells. Huntington is hunting a
ton of knowledgeg and you must watch out for the "Sickles" for they
have just been sharpened. s V
The names of those bees, yet remaining, cannot be punned upon, so
absence from this account shall be their only punishment.
The freshmen mean to be represented in all phrases of school life, and
in athletic lines, they will have a fine track team.
But now this year of initation is soon ended, and-

school, which as Sophomores we have failed to mar or sully in any
respect. -- L i
Our class has never lacked a social side, and early in Qctober the
Sophomores entertained the Freshmen, an event which left moist pleasant
memories. On the evening of February nineteenth there was held the
annual class banquet.
In athletics the class of I9lI has acquitted itself very creclitably.
Early in the year the Sophomores challenged the Freshmen to a game
of football which was forfeited by those Freshies as they did not appear
on the field. Inf basketball the class was unusually successful, trimming
the Freshmen, and gaining such a reputation, that even our friends, the
mighty Seniors, failed to accept our challenge, thereby acknowledging
our superior ability. In baseball work, too, some of the best material
was found among the Sophomores.
rWhen rally time came we were right "there" with song and yell,
and it was the Juniors who were "Stung againf' Our stunt was
original and was excelled only by that of the Senior class.
Next year we will take our place as Juniors. At that time we will
have no cause to look mournfully into the past, but instead, every reason
for looking hopefully forward to a brilliant future in the dear old P.

Junior Class History
I, the mighty Bulldog, allied myself with the class of nineteen ten
at the request of my invincible friend, the Tiger. For as the time of the
rally of l908 drew near, all classes had adopted a symbol except the
Sophomores. The Tiger having noted their tenacity, courage and strength
dubbed them "The Bulldogf' by which name they will evermore be
known. Thus my namesakes have the honor of being the only class in the
P. N. S. whose symbol was chosen by a third party to symbolize their
As Freshmen, I found the class of nineteen ten had carried their
colors, the red and white, with credit both to themselves and to the school.
As Sophomores, they joined forces with the Tigers against the Cubs and
Lambs. The result of this alliance is now a prominent part of P. N. S.
history. r Q ,
But now l come to partof which I am proudest 3' the Bulldogs in
their Junior year have m-ade an enviable record. It is as follows:
ln athletics, a Junior captained the football team and twedlvfe
Juniors played in regular games, namely, Cook. Culenn, Dewitt, Hunt-
ington, McCormick, L. jones, L. Sullivan, C. Burns, Davis, Williams,
W. Murphy and H. Fox. Clifford Burns, a Junior, has been elected
captain for next year's team.
ln basketball, the team was captained by a Junior and nine Juniors
were in the regular squad of ten, namely, L. Jones, Burns, Heath, Williatms,
Orput, Liddle, Livingston, W. Murphy and Huntington. In every game
played except one the team was composed exclusively of Juniors. In base-
ball, the team has been captained by a Junior and made up largely of
ln oratory and debating, Edgar Runkel, a Junior, won second place
in the oratorical contest. Four out of the six debators against Ylvhite-
water and Milwaukee were Juniors, T. Torgerson, lVlcCormick, Elgar
Runkel, and Huntington. Arthur Witting, a Junior, has been elected
president of the State Oratorical League for the coming year.
ln music, eleven Juniors are in the band, C. Peterson, May,
Glenn, the Runkels, Whipple, C. Vanderbie, W. Murphy, Livingston, T.
Torgerson and Williams. Seven Juniors are in the orchestra, Lucile Schus-
ter, Elizabeth B. Murphy, Sadie M. Schmidt, C. Vanderbie, Liddle,

4 On the evening of ,lanuary 22nd, '09, the Juniors held their third
annual class party in the Mining School hall. Supper was served in the old
Grammar rccm. after which the following toasts were responded to:
"Progress, not Station," Miss Danforthg "The Junior Girlsf, Will Livings-
ton: "The Bulldog," Myra Yorlcg "Our Guest," Prof. Xvilgusg toast-
master. Raymond C. Xvilliams. Dancing began at 9:30, the music being
furnished by the Marine l-larps Orchestra of Baraboo. About two hundred
persons were in attendance and the affair was successful in every way.
ln connection with the rally the Juniors did a number of things.
ln the preliminary frays. the Juniors more than held their room.
During the year occurred the death of our class treasurer, Vicf
Haueter. The entire school mourns his death and Victor will always be
remembered by his fellow-students as a faithful friend and helper.
At the present time. the Bulldogs number over one hundred. They
have proved themselves always ready for a scrap, fun or work as occasion
demands. Xifhen the Tigers return commencement week, they will find
many new faces in the junior ranks. but everyone a loyal Bulldog.

SENIOR IVIOTTO-They can who thmk they can
EMBLEM-The Grizzly Bear
COLORS-Brown and sllver
ln a home in southwestern Wisconsin called the Platteville Normal,
nn the 'fear l'7fl9. dwelt four families known as the Bees, Gophers, Bull-
dczs Grizzly Bears. The Bulldogs formed the largest family, but
E?-e strangest and rncst reliable were the Grizzly Bears.
In ions, when Cubs, they had promised well for the future: all
looked toward them -with interest and as Senior Bears they more than ful-
nllrd those bright phcphecies. Immediately they showed their thotful
wisdom in the selection of a leader, a very big Grizzly, whose clever
guidance all were glad to follow.
There were many difficult tasks set for this oldest family in the home,
and much depended upon the correct and satisfactory performance of these,
a few of the family, perhaps. at some time complanied, but all of them
did their worli and well as the records will show.
They wcrked while they worked and so it was that they doubly
enjoyed all play times. These seemed very far apart then but now every
Grizzly has many happy times to recall.
There was a time when all four famliies met,
each to show its greatest
worth. It was then that a feeling, quite unknown in the home, arose
amcng the Bulldogs: but it was entirely forgotten when they, with the Bees,
Gophers and Grizzly Bears all gathered around that one Grizzly, whose
fame had reached all parts to the North and East of the family home,
and was so soon to spread to the Xvest.
The year passed quickly by, leaving some things undone and many
things done well. For these duties creditab

.I :FE 1
Some four long years more or less ago,
Entered the Normal with faces aglow,
New students from far and wide,
Intent to study, learn and guide,
Or find that as time went on,
Ruin faced them in the form of a cow,
Some conquered, some went down.
Since nineteen five, four years have passed,
Enthralled with pleasure, pain and last,
Now that course so long .is run,
In the Normal record all is done,
Qur thoughts turn in retrospect
Review the past and recollect
Seniors' praises in manner direct.
Strong in number is this class of nine,
Earnest in purpose nor think of decline,
Never knew honor second in line,
In oratorical first eve1'y time.
Of Wallin we boast and rightly feel proud,
Round Wallin we rallied, he belonged to our crowd
Sing out for Wallin, sing good and loud.
Sound in his judgment is noble Tom Jones,
Ever up and doing as every one owns,
Noting events in funny cartoons.
ln praise of our President each little one croons,
On the platform he stands and of't does he frown
Rapps on the desk with gavel his own
Strikes with loyalty to silver and brown.
Some times she talks but tis not long or loud,
Ever her place she will keep in a crowd,
Nellie Carpenter-that is her name.
l'm sure such modesty helps some to fame,
Order and law she will forever keep
Rarely she talks, but talking is cheap
"Still waters," so say the poets, "run deep."
Saint like! oh no, and we're real glad of that
Every bit a sport from his shoes to his hat
Naturally bright is our own Albert Clemens
It is real true that girls handed him lemons?
Oh he can talk when in class he arises,
Reading he does in amount that surprises,
Sometimes he stays up until the sun rises.
Statesman in books as well as in spirit,
Empires ma.y obey his voice when they hear it,
None his superior in manner or thought, .
A In his brave life will be battles well fought.
Over the heads of less gifted he'll speak,
Roy DeWitt,-gentleman, friend of the weak,
Seniors e'en you should such wisdom seek.
Student indeed is our shy Anna Boyle,
Ever at work thru the day she does toil,
Never found wasting her time with the boys,
Innocent, yet as a child with its toys
Obeying all- our rules and our laws,
Rebuking none without'a just cause,
So to her we give three loud hurrahs.
See the fair girl with the sharp and brown eyes!
Every one knows it when Florence goes by,
Ne,er can she pass, but young Latham sees her,
Impatient Percy who does all to please her,
Object alone of -his fondest affections,
Readily he'd sever all other connections,
She is to Percy the best of perfections.
Speaker and reader and right up in line,
E.. Alice Burns does things up fine.
Never refuses to labor, tasks hard and long,
Impressing all with her spirit so strong.
Oh, what black hair has our dark Hdixien girl,
Round her calm face it so nicely will curl,
Smooth in her manners, yes smooth as a pearl.
Searching the halls at noon and at night,
Entreating each one who comes into sight,
Nearly tired to death and yet not distressed,
In her search for the other as perhaps you have guessed
"Oh HlVlil,,' H she cried and joyfully said,
"Really kid,', I thought you were dead,
6Say Mayme let's sing a song and be glad."
Standing alone in dignity grand,
Ever anxious to help with work that's at hand,
Noisy? sometimes hut not in excess,
lt's hard when you all noise would supress,
Over cares of the Seniors Floy Hawkins sights,
Rejoices in victory and speaks with surprise,
Searches the classes and thus becomes wise.
Skipping around and jolly all day,
Edna Byrne laughs at trouble they say,
Nellie Howell tho in a serious manner,
lnstills in the Seniors as she waves a banner
Of the right of the President in every case,
Regarding the work of the time or place,
Strongly to assert himself and lead the race.
Some of you have heard of the part,
Elmer Herron plays the Dutchman's art,
Noted is he in the great Senior class,
Interested much in a Junior lass,
Over him watched with fatherly care,
Regan our "cop" and debator as fair,
Should Herron turn Junior our class would despair.
Simmons in the name of two sister girls,
Even alike as two fashioned pearls,
Non-plussed we heco-me when distinction we make
ln this one Mattie or Myrtle who spake.
Often we see them and don't need to guess,
Regarding their place in the G. D. M. S.,
Significant are they, most surely-yes.
Swift is the girl as every one knows,
Excells in her talk whenever she goes,
Nellie Hall now we call to your mind,
lnsisting so strongly to pay up what's fried,
Of both of these Seniors we often will hear,
Rencwn they will win in some future year,
Smoclh is their path with nothing to fear.
Sericusly serious is Maxwell Jenks,
Ezpelling all care and of one person thinks
Needless to say the thing on his mind,
ls ctarming Gail l-lickcox-she's just the right kind
Of these happy people new names could we get,
Such friendship is rare, they're lucky you bet.
Settled in purpose our Thomas McKe-rman,
Enraptured by Ruby for whose love he is yearnin
Not making publicghis love for Miss Fry
In this we can praise him and not say, "Oh My!"
Often at banquets and other events,
Ruby's ne,re lonesome and with Thomas contents,
Seniors are these and Seniors with sense.
Starring in basketball all the year thru,
Edna Lucksinger knows what to do,
None the less prominent in oratorical honor,
Inspiring the audience by dignified manner,
Or helps plan a stunt which beats all the rest,
Rouses up spirit and works with a zest,
So that the grizzlies will always be best.
Songs like the lark sings before dawn of day,
Entrancing and charming- as smiling May,
Never refusing to sing well her part,
In musical art she puts soul and heart,
Over her-studies she bends without fears,
Regarding in german this student Miss Beers,
Smoothly translates and difficulty clears.
Shambling along like a true grizzly bear,
Envying each boy his sweet lady fair,
Nervy in meetings of our Senior class,
Illnatured when one objects to his brass,
Oh but we like him from Monday to Monday,
Really he's sometimes more cheerful than grumbly,
Such a conundrum and mixture is "Blondy."
Stella our maiden with eyes black as berries,
Envied indeed will he be whom she marries,
Ne'er he'll regret it nor have cause for pain,
In life she will love him with might and main,
Or when you must search for a good party stunt,
Run right to Stella and no farther hunt,
Stella, whose last name we still think is Blunt.
Slim Lellan Wills the notorious Hue diver
Enrolled as a grizzly because he couldn't discover
Niggarding ways to spell parallel and privilege,
In other branches he had a great knowledge,
Of his failure to spell certain words in a test,
Retards his spirit and zeal non the least,
Strong points in his favor o,er shadow the rest.
Second to none is Jenkin Ellsworth for fun,
Encouraged by nature do all his jokes run,
Never missing a chance for a good hearty laugh,
ln school and out these is joy in his path,
Un the football line a good center rusher,
Received in baseball much praise as a catcher,
Stands alone in his power as a meal dispatcher.
Slowly we name each one of our throng,
Entering now Hope l-lowery for song,
Not thinking of failure a solo in line,
In response to a call l-lope sings it each time,
Gften in voice both strong and clear,
Renders music so perfect we all want to hear,
Separate praise for l-lope is heard far and near.
Silent and faithful and ever at work,
Eleanor Weidenfeller was neier known to shirk,
Noticed was she to the same extent,
ln which others. are noticed of opposite bent,
Our prophecy is she'll not meet defeat,
Rejoice we ever know her plan she'll complete,
Such silent and faithful are not obsolete.
Searles is the last name of one of our caste,
Ester the first tho the first does come last,
Notable is she and is always there,
Inspired with purpose and knows not despair,
One who in earnest studies o'er her part,
Resigned to her duties and up at the start,
Science to master and also the art.
See how she works. she's always busy,
Even the Grinder can't sav that she's lazy,
Never did you know Miss Farrey to fool
lnside or out of our Normal school
Out doing the rest in her practice work,
Rational always nor knows how to shirk,
Seniors thoughts in her head seem to lurk.
School ma'am she was in our play, "Country School"
CEach did so well that l laughed even 'gainst the rule
No one is ever more willing to act.
ln a good part and she does it with tact,
Outspoken Blanche Foltz, our class sheill defend,
Remember Seniors on her may you depend,
She's our classmate and scholar and friend.
Shall we ,ever forget in time to come,
Emma a Virgin and Miss Sullivan,
Nor Nellie Pitts and Elsie Harker
t Indeed these are grizzlies who did never falter
Our plans would have failed in every case
Ruin would have stared us square in the face
Supposing these Seniors were not in their place.
Studying and working all the claylong,
Ella Pitts leads with standing strong,
Next in this line is happy Mae l-lawley,
Irma Shearer and silent Miss Reilly,
On these we depend our record to make,
Rank higher than those the others make
Students like theseiare always awake.
Speeding along o'er the football grounds
Enforcing the line with his two-hundred pounds
Never failing is Luethe in playing the game
Instilled with loyalty he works might and main
Oscar Torgerson too at Schuster's request, -
Reviewed Arithmetic with vigor and zest
Sneaking along thru the Normal at night,
Everywhere nailing our banners up tight
Never found waiting where there's something to do
Into the attic by climbing the flue,
Our class is much better on account of such ufellers
Reason enough that our annuals are sellers
Seems to me you have guessed this is "Chick', Wellers.
Striking the keyes on the Normal piano,
Excellent too in singing soprano,
Noted for this is lVliss Anna Geigel,
ln musical lines she works with a will.
Qnward in life with- a plan all his own,
Remarkable poet is Joe Henderson,
Sure in this line to gain great renown.
Schambow and Rundell are often together,
Enlisting their service in all kinds of weather
Night, noon and morning they work for our class
Instead of trying their studies to pass.
Officious and serious Clinton Wiseman is,
Reading and studying to write a hard "quiz
Solemn and silent he ,tends to his Hbisf'
Since his standings at first were not of the best. l
Seldom you'll find a girl like HPet,' Ellis
Ever willing and ready and anxious to help
None-the-less important is Ruth Eastman,
In all lines of work she does all she can.
Obvious it is that Arthur Hemphill,
Really is able to work with a will,
Speedy, well yes when his way is down hill.
Still others there are in this Senior class,
Elizabeth and Marion are hard to surpass,
Notable too is Miss Lillian A. Whaley,
In writing news of Seniors at the Rally, U
On the Annual Board and Exponent too,
Recording things that "I-luntl' ought to do,
Surely much praise to these three is due.
Stately and tall and dignified too,
Elusive in manner yet anxious to do,
Not working for glory but much has she won,
Imperial in action is Miss Gilbertson.
Often with her Miss Jacobs is seen,
Responding in class with intellect keen,
Small of stature but of dignified mien.
Seen in our midst is Rev. Clyde Walker,
Everywhere known as a very good talker.
Never idle a moment and a good one to plan,
On any new work, is Miss Wickersham.
Others there are who honors can claim,
Rundell and Roberts but Mable by name,
Silently labor for Seniors ifame.
Skaife and Williams and Bessie McKernan,
Ever up and doing, always learning,
New topics -to give for current events,
ln other respects they are not at all dense.
Only one more name and she has won honor,
Remains to be written withijust as much favor
Sis for Stidphens a loyal good Senior.

The Annual Class Banquet
In the calendar of social events during the school year, there appears,
"April30th - Senior Banquet." An annual class banquet shows as no
other social function can, the real power of a class in organization and
management, as well as social graciousness. The Senior class, due per-
haps to experience, naturally excells in this effort.
On the last night of April the Seniors and their guests assembled in
a reception room in the Mining School building. The scheme of decoration
was very original and beautiful in effect with nearly one hundredpennants
representing colleges throughout our land. The reception lasted a half hour
and at 6:30 the company, led by Dr. and Mrs. McGregor, went to the
banquet room where three delightful courses were served.
The room made a very pleasant scene with the long, daintily arranged
tables at which one hundred-thirty people were seated. Above them was
the harmonious brown and silver, heavily festooned from the center, and
ending in graceful rosettes between the windows.
The toasts, responded to by three members of the faculty and four
Seniors, were of 'more than usual interest. Miss Alice Burns, as toast-
mistress, introduced the following toasts and speakers:
S-ence ...... Miss Mackey
i E-ducation Prof. Schuster
N-ormal Mr. Luethe
I-nitiative Prof. Gentle
O-pportunity Miss Howell
R-ecreation Mr. Latham
S-eniors . . . Miss Ramsey
After leaving the tables, a musical program by the orchestra was en-
joyed, and later the musical talent of the class was represented in several
At 9 :30 the grand march, led by Prof. and 'Mrs. Wilgus, was begun.
There were about seventy couples and soon the room was the scene of merry
dancing. For those who did not join the dancers, pleasant entertainment
was provided in the reception room. i
All cares and thoughts of work were laid aside by Senior and guest
alike and a thoroughly happy evening ewas enjoyed. It has been the
privilege of this class to receive its guests on many occasions, but never with
more pleasure than at its last annual banquet.
The Class Play
Qn Vyeclnesday evening, June l5th, the Senior class gave their
class plav entitled "Strongheart.', Although work in preparation was be-
vun rather late those who took part entered into the work with a determi-
nation to make this enterprise as successful as the previous events. This
play is unusually difficult, but those who took part deserve equal praise
for the execution of their particular role. The caste was made up as

a Normal school president, a railroad president and three of the men
widely known in the world of zinc.
Several autograph copies of books written by our graduates have been
collected by our librarian and placed in the library. The subject-matter
of these books ranges from children's stories to discussions of state and
national affairs, and are very interesting and instructive.
Fifty of the Normal alumni have finished their life work but have
left behind them a lasting influence for good and though dead are an in-

Among the recent deaths is the name of one who ably represented us

The Platteville Normal Press Association has charge of our school
paper, the Exponent. It is regulated by a good well defined constitution
and consists of the following officers for the ensuing year: Lee Jones,
president: Xvill Murphyf, secretary and John Regan, treasurer.
The officers of this association attend to all matters of general interest.
The more immediate work of the paper is in the hands of the editorial staff,
which is constituted by the following: editor-in-chief, Earl Huntington,
'IOQ business manager, James R. Vffallin, '09, representative of the
Senior class, Lillian Whaley, '09, of the Junior class, Clifford Burns,
'IOg of the Sophomore class, Joe McKenna, il l 5 of the Freshman class,
Carl Hayden, ,IZQ of the Philadelphian Society, Clifford Burnsg of the
Y. VV. C. A., Ada Rundell, '09, of the Music Department, Elgar Run-

its influence felt if all the students rally to its support.

of each member. our well-maimed fleet surged forward again. During
this term it was decided to have a picture of our president for each term put
in the Exponent. The matter of the contests within our societies was dis-
cussed. A committee was appointed to raise money to equip the society
The next term .lay McCormick was put at the head of our fleet.
He pushed with vigor and with co-operation on the part of the members,
the policies which had already been begun. A committee was appointed
to arrange for the contests with the Athenaeum Society. The work
concerning these contests was well carried out.
The third term Roy Dekvitt was chosen president. He urged on
the idea of equipping the Society roomg little has been done however
along that line. Oscar Torgerson has been elected to guide our fleet for
the remainder of the year and in June, at the close of our school year,
he will bring them successfully to their port.
Cur work in the Philadelphian society is nearing its close. As
we leave the old society room, as we break those old society ties, we
feel that this. surely, is the hardest thing we have to do. Vife turn our
backs upon that arena where we have fought out our differences, that
old battle ground where each must meet each and measure up with cch,
where friendships are welded strong. Oh! if we have but learned that
one word. Philadelphia. "Brotherly Love," let us part from that fair
held with contrite hearts.

All true education is enriched and vivified by experience. One who
has had varying experiences has the ability to adjust himself to new circum-
stances more readiily and to more easily H11 his position in life.
' To meet this demand for experience and training in the literary world
and to stimulate an interest in literature is what the Athenaeum society
endeavors to accomplish for its members. In this society the young women
put into practice what they have gained in the classroom, thus supplement-
ing and broadening th-eir school life. There they acquire the power to
express their thoughts clearly, which aids them materially in their preparation
for the teaching profession. A
The society holds a meeting each week on Friday evening in the
Normal building, and interesting and instructive programs are rendered.
This year several joint meetings were held with the Philadelphian society,
after which social evenings were enjoyed.
The-social gathering that will probally be longest remembered was
the one at Christmas time, at which all were dressed as little children and
were instructed to bring toys. A spectator that night might easily have
thought that some Fairy had carried out the suggestion,
"Backward, turn backw-ard, O, Time, in your flight,
Make me a child again, just for to-night."
Inthe past, the Athenaeum society has had a large membership of
active workers, and every earnest young woman in school who cares for a
better and broader development should use the opportunity offered in this
literary society. .

The year l909 has been a red letter year in the oratorical history
of the Platteville Normal School. .ln both debate and oratory she has
won eminent and praise-worthy success. Year after year has found
a representative of this school in the State oratorical contests, and these
representatives have always gone forth imbued with that indomitable
courage and good cheer which has ever been so characteristic of Platteville.
Repeated defeats have not dampened her ardor. She has always firmly
believed in the value of that old adage. "If at first you don't succeed,
try, try againln
Not withstanding the fact that Platteville has only won the State
contest three times, and that sometimes she has gone down to fourth and
fifth, never-the-less she stands among the highest in regard to scoring the
most points. A
The students who were elected last year to serve this year as officers
of the Oratorical Association are: James R. Wallin, '09, presidentg Earl
Huntington, '10, vice-president, Alice Burns, '09, secretary and Max
Jenks, '09, treasurer. '
With Mr. Wall'in as the president of the Association and also as the
school orator, it is no wonder that Platteville came off victorious. Last
year he won third place and this year he went in with a fixed determination
to win lirst.
From the very beginning he has had the loyal, enthusiastic support
o-f the entire student body, and consequently, he felt the greater desire

This year the-re was' a triangular debate arranged between Mil-
waukee, Whitewater and Platteville. The three debates occurred on the
same night, January 31, one being held at Milwaukee, one at Whitewater
and one here. The team we sent to Milwaukee consisted of Walter
Leuthe, '09, Earl I-luntington, 'I0gyJay McCormick, 'IO and Clarence
Schuldt, '10, alternate. They were accompanied by Prof. Sanford
who coached both of our teams, and who deserves much credit for his
faithful and untiring efforts.
The team which debated here against a strong team from White-
water, consisted of Dennis Regan, ,095 Theodore F orgeston, 'l0g Elgar
Ri-mkel, 'IO and Clinton Wiseman, '09 alternate.
The team that went to Milwaukee won an unquestioned and unani-
mous victory, and it was the general opinion here that the decision would
have been given to us, had there been any judges to render a decision. It
was a wild stormy day, and the judges, all from Madison, were blockaded
on the train enroute to Platteville.
All the class declamatory work has been transferred, from the hands
of the Oratorical Association to the hands of the two literary societies.
Now there will be no more class contests. The contests will, hereafter, be
between the societies and will not be restricted to declamation work. Upon
consideration of the faculty and society committees, it was thought that it
would be beneficial to the societies both from a financial and literary stand-
point, if this work were given over to them.

August twenty-eighth to September seventh, l908. Miss Carl returned to
the work here with helpful ideas and renewed strength.
The association was glad to welcome Miss Pearson, the State Sec-

inspiration to all.
The association holds meetings every Thursday at the close of
Two Bible study meetings, one devotional meeting, and one mission-

The Athletic Association.
"And this I pray from day to day
If I cannot win make me a good loser."
Until recent years the athletics of the Normal were carried onunder
popular management, the teams furnished their own materials and paid their
expenses from the gate receipts or business-men's subscriptions. Realizing
the importance of c lean athletics both'for.the good of the player 'and the
name of the school a new organization was started in the.. fall of 1905
for the purpose cf raising the ideal in athletics, which previous to this had
been of a varying character. They also began to get away from the idea
that school and books are synonomous and to realize that a person that has
neglected his physical development is but half a man. It was next decided
to employ a means by which everyone could participate in the games and by
which the school would be represented by the best players.
This new factor in the life of the Normal's athletics is composed of
those male members who wish to sign the constitution and has been given
the name "Platteville Normal School Athletic Associationf,
The officers of the Association area president, vice-president, sec-
retary and treasurer. These officers together with the faculty committees
and football and 'baseball managers and captains constitute the Athletic
Board, which executes the business of the Association and considers all
schedules and rules governing athletics.' ' '
A rigid code of rules has been adopted regulating the participants
in the school athletics, no one is allowed to ente-r any athletic event, who
is not up in his regular school work or. who does not play a clean game.
The object of the Association is to blend athletics with the school work
so that both may progress without injury to either. e
The Association has progressed rapidly since its organization. Its
members have labored untiringly to promulgate ia co-operation between the
Athletic Board and the entire school and we now have the Association
on a good financial and democratic basis. The students have responded
liberally to the subscription fund and so naturally each student has felt
a direct interest in the Association. Thus it has developed in a few
years to a well rounded organization. The future depends upon the
interest displayed by our successors and without doubt in a few years we
will have the best organization of its kind in the state.
One of the great aims of the Association is to raise the standard
in athletics both morally and physically and it has clone a great deal
toward developing clean athletics and giving the school a high name among
our rivals. The schedules are arranged with teams of a high class and
we have made a creditable showing.
The A. G. Spaulding Company have asked permission to place our
basketball team in next yearis rule book, an honor not given! to many
schools of our class.
To become a participant in any game the player must show a manly,
sportsmanlike attitude toward his fellow players and the visiting teamsg
any other feeling will not be tolerated. l-le must act according to the
rules of the game or he will not be permitted to represent the school.
The inter-class contests have always been spirited and a good deal
of class spirit has been shown but this spirit is always supplanted by school
spirit. When we meet a visiting team, class spirit is readily forgotten
and songs and yells at every game make the players feel that they must
do their best for the honor of the school. In the future it is to be hoped
that there will be more class games but the school as a unit must never be
g The recent year has been one that will long be remembered by the
students. The new gymnasium has been better equipped than ever before
and the work in basketball has been so well managed by lVlr. Russell that
even a critical person could find no fault. We have a good gymnasium
and one of which we may well be proud. With this thought in mind,
why can't we have a track team? We have every opportunity to train
the members and the association provides for the appropriations necessary.
Let us have a track team next year and with the material we have at hand
it can be made one of the best in the state. Our most pressing need how-
ever is a campus for football and baseball. At present we rent the F air
Grounds for that purpose but if we purchase a campus we will be abl-e to
pay for it merely with the amount appropriated for the rent and we will
then have grounds in which we' will not be interfered with by town organi-
zations. It is essential that we have this campus and with a little considera-
tion we may be able to inliuence the regents to purchase a campus for us
that will be in keeping with our fine building:
l-lardly too much can be said in praise of Prof. Russell and the
interest he has displayed in athletics. He has always been ready to assist
a-ny athlete and his efforts for the good of the -school have been most praise-
worthy. Without compensation he has striven to assist the Association
in every possible manner and has given a great deal of his personal time to
the matter. The Basketball Association, which was organized this year
originated with him and he has worked faithfully to produce the best team
possible with the material and as a result-we have had one of the fastest
basketball teams that the Normal has ever known. Mr. Russell has always
taken an active part in baseball and a good deal of praise is due to him for
t IS. .
The I-Iigh School Field Wieet of the Platteville Normal District is
under the direct management of the Association and this year we started
early so that the meet will be one of the best that Platteville has ever
witnessed. lVlr.4Russell and Mr. Williams have done a great deal of work
in. past years to make th-ese meets a success and there is no doubt but that
with their experience in such matters we will witness a better field meet
that will be given anywhere in the state.
i l..et the future members of the Association strive to lift athletics to a
'still higher plane, if possible, so that the character of the players may also
e raised and come as near as possible the long-striven for ideal.

One day in October l907, a number of boys of the P. N. S. hied
themselves to Little Platte River for a picnic. I-lere a lively time was en-
joyed by all, the features of amusement being varied and unique. It was
noticed by all of the company that a spirit of good fellowship and har-
mony existed between them. On the homeward journey one of the
boys conceived the idea of a club. All the boys immediately expressed
their favorable opinions on the question and the club was formed. Since
the number of members was not to be more than eight the name "Big
Eight" was chosen. This makes the beginning of our club.
As an organization we have made a mark in the school life of the P.
N. S. when the idea of forming a club was conceived We did not consider
position or honor as a qualihcation for membership. We were just jolly
good fellows. For reasons which were not well grounded the "Big Eightf'
began to be opposed by a number of students. The source of the opposition
seemed to be with certain individuals. These certain few, .moved by feel-
ings of envy or jealousy, incited the rest. It is not necessary that the nature
or trend of the opposition be here recorded. In many cases it was strong
and unjust and in many cases was it strongly and justly withstood. The
consciousness of our own importance was aroused in us by the comments of
the opposition. -
Every organization boasts of honors won by its members. When the
expression "I-logging the Game" was applied to us we took "stock" and
found in our small number of eight boys, The Editor-in-chief of the Ex-
pon-ent, ,085 President of the Press Association, ,081 Secretary of the
Oratorical Association, '08, Captain of the football team with five men
who played on the first team of l907g Vice-President of the Athletic
Association, '08, Editor-in-chief of the Annual, '08, Vice-President of the
Cratorical Boardg Exponent and Annual cartoonist, '08, Chairman of
th-e W'ayst and Means Committee, ,OBQ Vice-President of the Junior
Class, A representative on each of the debating teams representing the
school: Representatives in baseball, basketball, band, orchestra and on the
exponent staff. ,Of the eight .members seven won the oflicial letter in ath-
letics . It will be remembered that it was thru the efforts of a Big Eight
boy that money was raised to send the band to Superior. Also that the
"Old Belln was taken from the old Normal to the New by the boys of
th-e "Big Eight." This is a partial record of our organization for one year,
minor details being omitted. b
The many experiences of the "Big Eightn of 1908 were enjoyable
and exciting. Of these we recall with pleasure the supper given us by
Miss Montgomery our Thanksgiving entertainment alt' Doageville at
the homeof udge Aldro enks and our banquet held near the close of
the year At Dodgeville udge enks drew up a contract which was
signed by each member This contract contained many provisions one
of which was that th-e original eight should again assemble after a lapse
of ten years at the home of udge enks We look forward to the meet
ing with great anticipation
The beginning of the school year found four of the original eight
in school three having graduated and one having left to take up work
in the Stout Manual Training Schools A plan was adopted to per
petuate our organization in the Normal. The plan is to choose a sufficient
number each year to make the club consist of eight members The members
chosen for the year l909 are Raymond Williams Clin Paulson Albert
Clemens and Everett Glenn This year we have in our number two class
presidents two treasureres the Chairman of the Ways and Means the
President of the Idlers the Editor in chief of the Annual 09 Rep
resentatives on the Annual and Exponent boards and in the band basket
ball baseball football and orchestra The new members have proven
themselves true blue and loyal to the Big Eight
It is a recognized fact that the Big Eight have made things inter
estlng at school and have taken the initiative to a greater extent than any
organization of its size ever connected with the school
We have no honorary positions or degrees in our order With each
other We are of the Big Eight we need no Writing

The G. O. T. CCW-and Old Tigersl is perhaps the first organization
of its kind ever introduced into Normal life. The member-ship is made
up of those who allied themselves with the .':Tigers" of 1908 but who
did not graduate at the close of the year. The organization of this club
was accidental. It grew out of a meeting which was called for the purpose
of arranging a social evening for a number of the "Tiger" class who were
soon to leave for their schools Where they were to teach. At this meeting
a President, Secretary and Treasurer were elected. '
The life of this club extended from the beginning of school to the
close of the second term, when the members finished their Work. During
this time many social events were held. The spirit of these meetings was
characteristic of that shown by the "Tigers, of l908. The songs and yells
of l908 again resounded thruout the building.
The organization of the G. O. T. was an experiment but it proved
successful. The mid-year graduates enjoyedthemselves at the social events
and meetings of the order. In future years organizations of like character
will undoubtedly have loyal support and a sufficient .membership to make
this order Worth while. A

THE NORMAL BAND
It is a generally accepted fact that of the Normals of the State,
Platteville holds first place in its music department. Two twenty-five
minute periods each week and the first ten minutes of each afternoon are
devoted to chorus practice under the able director of Prof. F. F. Church-
ill. The best class of music is used in the school. New books were pur-
chased this year in which we find such names as Schubert, Haydn, Mozart,
Handel, Beethoven, Wagner, Sullivan and Lang.
All Normal students, with the exception of those who specializ-e in
German or Latin, are required to take twenty weeks of music. They a.e
taught sight reading, methods, and the lives of the most important com-
, Every Friday morning a program is given for the benefit of the school
and public. The best talent of the city and the various musical organiza-
tions of the school appear on these programs. Among the recitals given
were those by Mr. Riege, Mrs. O'Neil, Miss Ramsey, Mrs. Bert Bis-
hop, lVlrs. Loren W. Loy, Prof. and Mrs. Dudley, Jennie Weitten-
hiller, a violin quartette composed of Lulu Rundell, Sadie Schmitt, Lucile
Schuster and Bessie Murphy and a mixed vocal quartette whose members
were Prof. and Mrs. Dudley, Miss Ramsey and John Lund. Not only
enjoyment but a valuable musical education is gained by those who hear
these excellent programs. The Friday morning exercises in charge of
Mr. Churchill are always looked forward to with pleasure.
Music is taught throughout the-training department of the Normal
by practice teachers under the direct supervision of Prof. Churchill. The
children are taught rote songs, sight reading, and composing, besides
the theory of music. Some very good work has been done in composing,
especially in the grammar grades.
Much interest is shown in the excellent results of the work in the
training school. Occassionly, during the year, the grades appear before
the Normal 'department on Friday morning. The words of a number of
the songs used in the primary grades were written by Marion Mitchell,
a'member of the '09 class. The music was written by Mr. Churchill
and Mrs. Grindell.
Most of the songs used in theilower grades of the training school
are those composed by Mr. Churchill and Mrs. Grindell. Both collect-
ions of the Churchill-Curindell songs attest the ability of the composers
in writing songs suited to children's voices. They are contributors to
the School Century, each number containing one or two of their songs.
Platteville realizes the ability of the man at the head of its music
department. Prof. Churchill is progressive, enthusiastic, and always ready
to help, not only where it benefits the Nor-mal but the town life as well.
He gives lavishly of his time and energy. Besides the heavy work con-
nected with the School he gives vocal instruction.
We feel that to 'Mr. Churchill and Mrs. Curindell much is due for the
place Platteville holds among the Normals of our State. Both have the
best interests of the school at heart and are ever ready to do all that lies
in their power to further the music work in the school. S

This quartetteecomposed-of Hope I-Iowery first soprano, Clara Beers
second soprano, Anna Geigel first alto, and Myrtlei Stephens second alto,
was organized 'for the purpose of entering 'the contest between the two
literary societies, the Athenaeum and Philadelphian. Their singing proved
so popular that their services were often demanded at literary and other
programs. Three of the members are Seniors, the fourth a Junior.
THE NORMAL ORCHESTRA
,pf .... U,
About five years ago at the home of Prof. Churchill an orchestra.was
organized, consisting of the professor, his son, his daughter, and Richard
Mac Gregor. Gradually new members were added. All during the
Winter of I903 and 1904 the orchestra practiced faithfully hoping,
with someperturbation, for the time when it might appear in public. By
the end of the year it had gained a supply of music and the ability
to play and it was with modest courage that early the next year it launched
out as a musical .organization of the school. It consisted then of ten male
memberswith Mrs. Grindell as pianist.
At present the orchestra consists of fourteen members, Prof. Church-
ill, leader and first violin, Sadie Schmitt, Lulu Rundell, Raymond Williams,
and Reuben Whipple, first violins, Lucile Schuster and Bessie Murphy
second violins, Edward Livingston, cornet, Earl Liddle and Chauncey
Vanderbie, clarinets, Richard Munroe, slide trombone, Orville Curkeet,
bass violin, Roscoe Vanderbie, drum and taps, and Anna Geigel, pianist.
The orchestra helps in school and city functions Whenever possible. It
has given several Friday morning programs, played at class parties, at

complete surprise came to the Normal people on the morning of
January fifteenth 'When' a company of gypsies appeared on the platform
ready to entertain. They proved to be the eighth grade from the training
department. They were dressed in typical gypsy costumes as was also their
queen, Hopenl-lowery, 'a member ofthe class of l909. They 'represented
gypsy life in camp. I' -
They gave the operetta, "The Gypsiesv in a very creditable manner
due not only to theiriown efforts but' to the drill' given them by Mr.
Churchill 'and Mrs. Grindell.
The members ofthe company Were: Florence- Cleary, Florence Run-
dell, Gertrude Huntington, I-Ielen'AGardner, Lila May, Gladys Atkins,

The Platteville Normal Band was organized in I900 by W. I-I,
Goldthorpe, now of Cuba City. It was composed of eighteen members.
Its services were engaged by the Lecture Bureau and the Star Theatrical
Club. It also played at Galena on the anniversary of C1rant's birthday
and won great honors for itself and the school. Aletter of congratulations
was sent by Theo. Roosevelt from the Executive Office in Albany, N. Y.
The following year the Band was under the direction of E.. Morris
who was succeeded by Clyde Goldthorpe. In l902 the Band became
a permanent organization of the School. A constitution and by-laws were
adopted. Edward Mithus was chosen leader. F rom the fall of l904
Arch Tarrell led the Band for three successive years.
Last year Prof. Churchill was given charge and that he has done
able and effective work in that position is manifested by the class of music
used and the skill with which difficult music is handled.
The Band lends willing assistance at football, basketball, rally,
and political contests.
i Seven years ago the Band was sent to the Inter-Normal Oratorical
Contest at Superior with the school orator. It was then the only Normal
Band in the State, a distinction it has held almost continually since that
time. Every year since 1902 the Band has been sent to the lnter-Normal
Contests. On all these occassions it has ably fulfilled its mission of inspir-
ing the school orator and representing the Platteville Normal. It has
now visited all the Normals in the State and at each contest wins new
honors for itself and thepschool.
In l904 and l909 the band represented Wisconsin at the Inter-
State Contest at Cedar Falls, Iowa. T
The instrumentation of the Band is as follows:
I... Vanderbie, President and Manager.
Prof. F. F. Churchill, Leader.
lst Comets-Conrad Peterson, John May, Dennis Regan, Clarence

Last year an organization was formed by Prof. Churchill whichlably
prepares boys in the training school to enter the Normal Band when they
have reached that stage of musical development. They are doing good
Work under their efficient leader. Much interest is shown by the boys in
their Band. They have given several Friday morning programs during
the year which proved very enjoyable. '

The call for football players was readily responded to by 22 of our
best athletes and anyone that could have seen them in their Lmiforms could
not have helped saying that We had a fine tea-m. Practice was constant
and in practice games with the I-Iigh School and the Mining School, a
good showing was made. .The men were shifted ,constantly to different
positions but regardless of that it was certain that we were to have a
winning team. A preliminary game with the I-Iigh School at the F air
grounds showed poor results of the coaching with a final score of I0 to 6.
The men were again shifted to different positi-ons.
Our first game was scheduled with Dubuque I-Iigh School. Here
fate and misfortune set in their work 'making a final score of 6 to 5 in favor
of Dubuque. Our failure was due to our captainis inability to kick
goal. In this game both the coach, lVlr. Reynolds, and Captain Hunting-
ton were severely criticised for putting into the game every man that had
reported for practice but they excused themselves on the grounds that this
method would show who were the best players. A
The second game was played here on October 17th against Beloit
Academy and the score was 5 to 0 in their favor. The score does not show
how the Normal outplayed them but owing to a fluke play they scored
and we met defeat for the second time.
On the morning of October 24th our football team left here at five
o'clock to drive .to Dubuque. Breakfast was to be ready for the team at
Sisson's but owing to some misunderstanding it was not ready when we
arrived there, so we drove on to Dubuque through the mud and arrived there
at Il :30 tired and hungry. The game with St. Joseph's College started
at 2:30. Their team outweighed Platteville almost 40 pounds to the man
but we went into the game with spirit and had scored six points before two
minutes of play, due to l-luntington catching a punt and making a forty
yard dash for a touchdown. It was a hard fought game and before the
first half of the game was over two of our regular men were laid out
The score at the end of the first half stood 6 to 6. At the beginning of
the second half the fatigue of the players began to tell and the final score
was 22 to 6. This after that tiresome ride, against a team that outweighed
us so much was' the most honorable defeat of all.
The last game was with Whitewater, played here October 3lst.
School spirit ran high and the entire school marched 'Gen masse" to the
Fair Grounds, headed by the band. This game was hard fought, both
teams were determined to win and were about evenly matched, men were
injured frequently and three of Whitewater,s men were badly injured.
We had the ball on the five-yard line four times but were able to get it over
but once and the final score stood 6 to 5, defeat being due to l-luntingtonls
failure to kick goal. ,
I Sentiment of the town ran high against football and owing to the
extreme illness of one of our schoolmates, Mr. I-laueter, it was decided that
we. would cancel the rest of the games. Let us hope that the old game will
be revived next year and this year's defeats will be' forgotten in the victories
of our successors.

a touchdown in two minutes from a punt.
CLIFFORD BURNS-Right half back.

RAYMOND WILLIAMS-Left half
back and right end. Williams is an all
around athlete and although a light man for
back he' filled that position well because of
his running ability. i
EVERETT GLEN-Left half back.
Glen was one of the new recruits this year
coming as captain of the Rewey High School
team -of last year. I-lisweight was a valuable
asset of four team and he handled the ball
in good form.
ALONZO COOK Left guard. Cook
took this position when Jenks was injured
and held his man well. I-le will remain
in school for next season and will presumably
play the same position.
I TOM JONES-Center and half-back.
For the-first three games Jones played cen-
ter and held his own against such players as
Brady of St. Josephs. In the last game with
Whitewater he played half back and made
many fine gains. A
LEE JONES Left tackle Jones had
the right build for thls position and toward
the end of the season he overcame his ten

Clemens held this position throughout the
season and signalized his ability in the last
game by capturing a man that had a clean
field for a touchdown, in one of the finest
runs of the season.
WILL MURPHY-Right end. Mur-
phy has one of the best records 1n tackling of
any one in the school. He was always will-

At the beginning of the second term a meeting of the boys was held
for the purpose of forming anassociation to take charge of the basketball.
At this meeting Prof. Russell was elected president of the association and
various committees were appointed to work out a better means for carrying
on the basketball work than had formerly been used. A week later a
second meeting was held and a committee was appointed with Prof. Russell
as head to organize the boys into teams and arrange a schedule for play-
ing. Great enthusiasm was shown by the boys and the teams were
organized and six games were arranged for each week with a practice,
between halves for some other team.
A suggestion was offered that we play for a trophy of some sort
but this was later given up. After these teams had been playing for
several weeks, ten men were chosen and from these ten men the first team
The first game of the season was played at Dodgeville against the
Dodgeville I-Iigh School on November 25th. The Dodgeville team was
outclassed by the speed and team work of the Normal and the score resulted
in 30 to 7 in favor of the Normals.
The next game was played here Christmas week against the Alumni.
This was a fast game but the Normals had the advantage as the Alumni
had not practiced together. .Score 4b to Z3 in favor of the Normals.
'Several practice games were played with the local schools in which the
Normals were victorious.
On January l5th the Normal team played the Monroe Cardinals

Upon their return to school after the spring vacation almost every
boy reported for baseball practice, as this made about fifty boys on the
diamond it was decided that it would be necessary to divide the players into
two groups, which were to compose the first andthe second teams. Both
teams were to be under the management of the athletic association and the
manager was to secure games for both teams. It was also decided that
the second team have the diamond' for practice on Monday nights While
th-e first team would have it the remaining nights of the week.
With such a large number to pick from it soon became certain that
we were going to have the best team that the Normal has ever had, and
Will Munphy our captain was in doubt as to who were the best men, be-
cause there Were so many good men to choose from. Every man was
eager to make the team and as ai result played his best.
The season was opened by "crossing bats with Lancaster High School.
The Normals won an easy victory and the final score was I8 to 2.
The second team played their first game at Belmont and defeated
them in an eleven innings game by a score of I l to 9.
The second game of the first team was played at Fennimore and right
here things Went wrong. Of course every team has its hard luck story and
this one is no exception. They lost this game by a score of 4 to 3.

The Relic Room
Last year Mr. Wellers,' captain of' the 1907 footballiteam, presented
to the school a picture of the football teamg with the idea in mind of start-
ing in the school a room to be known as the '4Relic Roomf, in
the trophies of our victories could be stored in cases, and pictures
various organizations could be hung upon the Walls. These relics
be dear to the heart of each alumnus and to gaze upon the pictures
serve to revive old memories of' hard earned victories. Also they
serve to stimulate the undergraduates to strive to keep up the good name
of our athletics' and if possible to do even better than their predecessors.
Today the "ReliciRoom stands out inialli itsistately graudeur with that
one picture and the question confronts. us, where are the Relics? That
one picture, of the team which was never defeated,l is hanging in the
reception room and its companions areneither athletic pictures or trophies.
The ideagwhich was certainly a good one, has been shoved into the back-
ground and nothing hasibeen done thisiyear to make such a roomipossible.
ls this idea to be forgotten? Are we to return and see nothing
that will bring memories' of hard fought battles? Perhaps next year the
idea will be revived butso far it has been aifailure.

The Senior Cruise
The Senior ship has anchored off the coast of care skidoo,
And upon the mighty Ocean left the tossing Normal crew,
Tho they beckon us to help them, save them from the dangers we endured,
We give back the helpful answer, '5Get your precious lives insured."
Here we sit on banks of glory, with one everlasting grin,
Being stuffed so full of knowledge, we are plum full to the brim,
But we're only waiting smilingly till you're where you cannot look,
Then weill open up our bags and boxes and crow oier what we took.
When we packed our books and pencils, our banners and our bear,
Tom jones said, 'sThe Dickensf, whose going to boss us over there?
The boys then held a meeting and came back looking wise,
A plan they'd formed right then and there to carry off a prize.
The ship at last receeded and we quickly turned about,
"What's the matter with Miss Carpenter," was the universal shout.
"Oh!', she cried, 6'Oh people, I'm so glad I ran away,
I've always just been crazy to run away and stay."
So then we fell to talking and to planning what they'd do,
When they diclnit have the Grizzles to teach them something new,
It would just be Schuster, teaching 'Rithmetic Reviews,
And every Thursday morning asking students for the news.
Monday morn at eight-two a poor fellow would take his place,
And at eight-ten in the office sit with pale pe-rspiring face,
Keeping quiet in appearance, but swearing violently within,
Trying, oh so mighty hard to keep a steady chin.
We made a plan for "Billy" for his Geometry class,
I-le's to take them when they come and keep them till they pass,
And if within this length of time the Hblockheadn cannot add,
We recommend 'hard study coached by "Billy" with a gad.
Dear old Tommie Gentle with his training school and form,
Works so hard, keeps such late hours, we fear 'twill do him harm,
l-le never smiles or laughs or has a single word to say, V '
And w-e're terribly afraid he'll come up missing some fine day.
There s geography and grammar and history reviews
And pon our word and honor they most drive a man to booze
With Isabell s lemon Laura s hat pm and rubber ball
You have to have a large hard head if you contain it all
Miss Mitchell tall and stately says I want some boys to work
Miss Brigham small and dainty her duty does not shirk
You must take twenty weeks each year gymnastics or you cannot graduate
And I shall read the names of those who need beware of fate
We d love if only for a day to be under Gardener s dominion
And hear again in history immie Wilgus opinion
But we ve one more duty yet to do before we end this chapter
And when you miss Belle Burke up there you ll know what we come after
1 9 O 9
As one who sits at evening o'er his studies all alone.
And muses on the faces of the friends that he has known
So I turn the leaves of fancy till in shadowy design
I come upon the smiling features of these dear classmates of m
Blondy with his baseball fills us with surprise
And Percy with his brightness clazzles all our eyes
Clemens lights his pipe in silence, and a sigh from Ellsworth seem
"Want my dinner and want it right awayf,
There,s a sound of sweetest music-for the voices now tli at start
Are those of Beers and l-lowery and Gail too does her part,
And Anna too and Wickersham with their music so divine
Make Max's truant fancies wander till he loses thought of time.
Now I hear along the hallway like a fluttering of wings
Roy,s and Stella,s voices and Irma as she sings.
Millie, Edna and Marion Mitchell laughing come along,
And Elsie Harker too who sternly says, '6You,re wrong!"
Alice Burns who speaks in earnest, Jack Lund who adds such fun
And Winifred who for eight o'clocks does run.
Lillian Whaley and Mattie Simmons who in 'Rithmetic do shine
All these and Wallin now who's first in every line.
The faces of Elmer I-lerron lighting up as Blanche he sees
And right across the aisle is Regan who's always at his easeg
Edna Byrne is standing there, she has a smile for every one
l-lere,s Walter Luethe over here, in football only you'll see him
s to say
No I see Tom Jones and Dewitt, whose wisdom keep the grizzlies bright
And Cora and Ruth and Floy who study with all their might,
With Clinton Wisieman here whois all his name implies
er, Walker and Frye who also are wonderous wise,
And Howell, Harp
The Reilly girls and Emma Virgin together oft are seen
And here come Myrtle Simmons and Mabel Rundell of thoughtful mieng
Joe I-lendersonis a poet and Chick Wellfers is another one. '
Wills, Hemphill and Scharfenstein will be glad when spellings done,
Weive Bessie McKernan and Thomas too tho' theyire no relation
And Florence Bridge and Lauretta Swift small but the wonder of the
Skaife and I'-larry and Nellie Hall with Julia and Ada all do work
Carpenter and Gilbertson are never known to shirk.
Mackay and l-lawley, why need say move? I
Mabel Roberts our-Lucile, the Claras two and Eleanor
And last but not least O. Torgerson, all are grizzlies full of fun. '
Now here we say to bulldogs, bees and gophers all
Think not to beat the grizzlies or your pride will have a fall:
N-ow with hope in all these Seniors my vision I resign
And say, "Hurrah for all the Grizzlies of the class of '09."

Nothing in this world will heal it,

The Race Prof. Sanford ran in Milwaukee.
OUR F ACULTY.
Now reader don't get excited
At what I'm going to sayg
For now I ani incited
To give my pen full sway.
You know or perhaps you don't k
A studenifs various woesg
He must be careful so
That he'll not get zeros.
A Senior now at lastl am,
I've run the gauntlet thru
And now no more I'll have t
I belong to another crew.
This story now to you I'll tell
Of faculty so wiseg
Those learned ones who could foretell
A twenty three surprise.
Prexy is a grand old man,
The best old boy in towng
I-le went out west nor left a plan,
And we did things up brown.
Schusteris next with the little curl,
l'le,s shrewd and sharp you bet,
In rally time he lost his whirl
And had his plans upset.
Now Wilgus has a peculiar way
Of pomping up his hairg
What would our little Jimmy say,
If sometime it wasnlt there.
I next write down I. Pretlow,
HAnd what am I doing now,',
She always wears that little bow,
She loves it well I allow.
Miss Mitchell with her six feet plus
And artistic work I'll owng
Was seen astride a yellow ho's.
And rode about the town.
What right, I ask, have you in here,
Asks Dudley with a hunchg
We,ve permission here, so never fear,
Repliecl the Senior bunch.
Prof. Gentle now comes along the street
Leading a Jersey cow:
A happy chap and farmer neat,
I-Ie sure is joking now.
Williams with his awful script,
Wrotve questions on the board,
Students oft on the answers tript,
To read the lines were bored.
With Carpenter I like to chat,
And talk about the weather,
Upon her head she wears a hat,
That shad-es us both together.
Miss Gardener in the library,
When asked for a certain bookg
Would talk of things most contrary,
Ere for the book she'd look.
Miss Danforth who teaches latin,
And of the Roman warsg
Was given a class in spellin',
With grizzlies as the stars.
Sanford we know is on the rocks,
He talks on geology,
Another class he also shocks,
Reynolds takes pleasure in football,
l-le says joy comes from itg
On the gridiron he would call,
And to the boys say dfuj rnn it.
Our German teacher Miss Schuster,
Gets often in a rage,
"This is not a lesson I'm uster',
You haven't yet one page.
Miss Brigham in gym. with grace,
Explains how to place right,-
ln this book at a 'certain place,
Her photo's sure in sight.
Yes Prexy, has gone and We really see,
Miss Burke for once at restg
But when he comes she'll say, "By Gee!
' I'll have to do my best."
Weld, looking over her glasses,
Spiecl out a chap who skipsg
If he belongs to her classes,
l-le's'billecl for one more trip.
Prof. Russell is a knoclcer surely,
We hear him every' clayg
l-le clicl fall n so handsomely
With Polly at the play.

Elmer Herron at the Dutch Supper.
In our Normal School there lived a lad
Who for dishwashing had quite a fad
So on Sundays he'd help his Lucile
Drying the dishes after each meal.
Seniors hung their banners on the gas-light
At which juniors did repine
Yet they sat beneath the banners
Of the class of l909.
There was a young lady named Stella
Who went with that young Geach fellah
When the lecture came round he couldn't be found
l'le'd forgotten his date with Stella.
There was a young man from Lodi
Who up the Main street didthie A
An auger for meat was what he did seek
This poor little fellow from Lodi.
There was a young fellow named Jesse DeWitt
Who in the library real often did sit
l-le spent his whole life, in the reading of "Life,"
Yet ne,er did he study a bit.
