Text from Pages 1 - 175 of the 1913 volume:
The time is almost here when We, the
Seniors, must take leave of the school,
Where for two years We have spent
many busy, happy hours each day. To
the north, to the south, to the east, to
the West, we go, feeling that these years
of Work have made us stronger to take
our places in the outside World. We go
to meet problems, and to become dis-
couraged and tired. But when these
times come, may we find within the
pages of this book a relaxation from the
labors of our Work. As the years pass
by, may this book become dearer to
each one of us in memory of a half-
forgotten time and of the busy 'happy
hours of Normal days.
Frank ZF. Glhurrlyill
ilivuh uf Ellyn Erpartxnxrnlt uf imlnair
In recognition of the un-
tiring efforts he has put
into his Work, giving to
this school a department
of music recognized
throughout the Mississippi
Valley, we respectfully
dedicate this book.

President William Sutherland is
now finishing the fourth year of his
administration in the Platteville Nor-
mal. The world contains some men
who shine forth on first acquaintance
only to die clown suddenly: others, at
first, scarcely make an impression but
we see their hold on men and upon
the circumstances that surround them
steadily increasing. As one of the lat-
ter class, President Sutherland entered
unobtrusively upon his duties here and
has worked on, steadily winning the
respect and admiration of student-
body and faculty alike. The better-
ment 'of the Normal is the one object
of his life, the one essential interest
which is ever uppermost in his
thoughts. The result is what one ex-
pects from a man of his character, and
with such an ideal. Under his guid-
ance, the institution continues to im-
prove in influence, in efficiency, in
short in all for which the Platteville
Normal School stands. Confidence in
the ability and judgment of our Pres-
ident is now instilled in the hearts of
all and upon such a foundation,
Platteville Normal is bound to fulfill
the hopes and aspirations of all those
who have a close interest in our Alma

A solemn looking bunch, you say?
Well, wouldn't you look sober
lf all the work of this whole book
You bore upon your shoulder?
Dyer looks cross as X, we know,
At Miss Durant he's scowlingg
5he's dinged at him to do his work
Until his rage is howling.
!t's strange that Pat can look so well,
The tortures he's been put through!
just think of being dragged to work
When Susan's waiting for you!
Homrich's look indeed is sac!
He told of how our goat strayed.
But cheer up, !-lomey, never mind,
That fence is now goat proof made.
M. Patterson's forgot to smile-
She didn't even wiggle!
Why, grind work's made her sober
You ne'er more will hear her giggle.
But O that grind work anyhow!
Of all things harcl to do!
Of all the fights and all the kicks!
No wonder they look blue.
Why Paulson looks so awful cross
ls more than we can tellg
Unless historic mysteries
Still in his mind do dwell.
But if 'you read the whole thing through 4
And really like this book,
Our very pictures on this page
Wil! wear a smiling look.

THE STANDARD BEARERS
The history of the 1913 Eagles falls into three epochs:
I. A Period of Exploration and Settlement, 1909-1911. The
records left during this period are rather meager in number: but
they show that in the fall of 1909, the Eagles found their way to
the P. N. S. So favorably were they impressed with the institution
that all decided to stay. At once strong and fearless leaders arose
who directed their fellows along the straight and narrow pathway
which leads to success. They prospered and waxed strong on the
athletic field, in forensics, in all school organizations, and in the
classroom. Indeed, the problem of "social efficiency" was partially
solved before the end of the period of Exploration and Settlement.
ll. A Period of Invasion and Readjnstment, 1911-1912. In the
fall of 1911, a vast horde swept down upon the sacred domain of the
Eagles and threatened to destroy the class completely. The "old
guard" was totally demoralized and a new set of leaders stood at
the helm. lint it was not long before peace reigned again. The
conquered and conquerors became one and worked together for the
common weal. The inlluence of the new blood was soon felt and
it was seen that the class was strengthened rather than weakened
by its introduction. The juniors stepped forth and took their hand
in the affairs of the school. ln debate they were preeminentg in the
societies they were indispensableg on the athletic field they were
activeg in the musical organizations they were in much demand: and
in all other school activities they showed their prowess. Among the
important events of this year was the junior Prom. lt was su-ch a
glowing success that assessments were enjoyed by the class until
the middle of the next year.

'Tis strange the commonplace is so little understood. Tradition
binds with bands of steel. Learning sometimes brings prejudice to
the mind. Knowledge is power only when used constructively.
Efducation is not an acquisition to adorn: rather it is a capacity to
serve. In the end men are remembered for their constructive in-
fluence. Not all in any social group can grasp the true significance
of personal efficiency. Does it not lie an these: the inclination and
capacity to promote social welfare?
Commendation always assumes the consummation of worthy
ends. Lleadership in ethical directions is constructive. Ability to
enhance the good is the true measure of virtue. Social progress is
blocked by unethical leadership. I
These words seem fitting to the Class of IQI3. And why should
you not have done more than earlier classmen? The spirit of the
times is changing. Education is opportunity. To some degree you
have transmitted and established the more wholesome faith. Have
you done one thing with your highest degree of earnestness and
greatest concentration of effort, then have you done well. Your
Alma Mater has already felt the impulse of your constructive
V Your spirit and your work are alike appreciated. The long
hours of faithful labor have established ideals. Oratory, argument,
physical contest, and journalism will continue on a higher plane be-
cause you have been here. But there is a larger vision. The world
is before you. In your Held success depends largely upon your so-
cial attitude. Selfishness eventually cripples. Evidence of genuinely
constructive work is the largest compensation of the teacher. Lib-
eral appreciation now is yours. To deepen the insight, to broaden
the sympathies, and to enlarge the faith is your opportunity for
constructive work. Here is the right hand of fellowship as you
enter the ranks. May the Giver of every good and perfect gift in
due time reward you bounteously.

McConnell Johnson Buxton Spink
After we, the Freshmen Tribe, treaded the pathway of the old
grammar grades, we lighted in a certain place called the den, and
we sat ourselves down awhile to think, and soon we were sorely
troubled. VVe soon beheld a strange man, standing before us, and,
opening a book, he read therein, "By courage and by craftf' As
he continued reading, we wept and trembled, and each one broke
out with a cry saying, "Wl1at shall I do? Where shall I go ?"
In this plight we were directed to the smaller dens clustered
around the big den and there at length we broke our minds to our
interpreters, and learned our lessons well. But soon a day came
when we were again sorely troubled, and we walked in the fields with
our books, and greatly distressed, we .burst out saying, "How shall
we pass the exams P" lflut our interpreter said, "Peace be unto ye,
for by the laws and ordinances ye have all been saved." So we
leaped for joy and went on singing. Thus, on a certain day we
departed and betook ourselves to rest until September, 1912.
Then we turned our way once more toward our school and
entered upon Sophomore activities: and we betook ourselves to be
socially efficient. Thus, on a certain day we and the lower tribe
met in a certain room, which was decorated in colors of red and
gray, and scented with the fragrance of red carnations. So we
rejoiced and were exceedingly glad. Then our superiors came unto
us and read of the worthy acts that we had done," and of the acts
of our fellowmen, as: our victories in the football games when

Yes, 'tis true that we are Freshmen
And some folks call us green,
But everything looks worse, of couise,
VVhen at close range ,tis seen.
And so we write our history
VVithin the Walls of fame,
And bid you judge us fairly,
Despite that 'hated name.
'Tis true we're not important,
Beside you-only mites:
'llut still we claim some honor
As infant normalites.
Perhaps we may be stupid-
Few people that are smart-
And yet, 'twas practising on us
That last year's Seniors got their start
And really you ean't blame us,
For what we are, was made
Ry these same student teachers,
Wlieii we were just "a grade.'
E llut since we've come to Normal
5 llow vastly we've improvecl,
: liaeh traee of former shyness
E Has long sinee been removed.
E. Society we've entered,
5 For every nerve weve strainecl
: To look our best and act our best,
E NYl1en the Sopl1'n1ores entertained.
E Our officers are "bully,"
E Our class is just the stuli',
E And it's we who get our lessons
E QXVe've not yet learned to blultj.

VValter Paulson you'd think ne'er neglected his work,
llut he's almost as bad as the rest:
For society write-ups he sometimes does shirk- -
Then "The Black List"-ii. spite of protest.
All the coin's in the hands of May Stephens-brave lass!
But the job doesn't take up much time,
For the funds of the EXPONENT staff don't surpass
J. D. Rocky's wealth in its prime.
Grover Fillbach's main duty's to mail out the "news,"
XfVhich he' faithfully does right along:
Hut his writing we pity, and spelling excuse:
So the typewriter sings him its song.
Master Robert J. Sutherland tends to the cuts,
And some Hue ones he gets, all will say,
For he cares not how many Profs' faces he smuts,
If some grudges he thus can repay.
Harold Stephens and pard, Ellis NVills, are a pair
That can get all the "ads" that we need,
For they all of the merchants in town do ensnare,
And not one from their grasp can be freed.
Let me tell you that "grinds" Emily Kimball does get,
And its awfully hard I do fear,
For, although all the people she tries not to fret,
Many enemies crown her career.
For the whole lot of us it means write and rewrite
Till the EXPONENT, copy is ing
Then correct all the proof when returned-far from right-
Then our plans for next issue begin.
Having read this account now, you all will agree
That it's not what you'd call perfect bliss,
Or a lazy man's job, or a real jubilee 'W
To be one of a bunch such as this.
Allen Benhke Shepherd Jacobsen
OUR PR ESIDENTS-Athenaeum Society
I know that I promised last june when you left school, to keep
you posted on the doings of the Athenaeum: but really, every one of
us Seniors has been up to his neck in work this whole year: and
so l'll just make up for lost time by telling you all in one letter.
Of course society work has not been the least among our duties,
except in a few cases when we prepared after we arrived for the
meeting. llut everyone has taken an interest this yearg our mem-
bership has been over eightyg and we have had a lot of dandy meet-
ings. Quite a few unusual things, too.
The first of the year we had our regular joint meeting with the
boys' society. My! lt was exciting! They sent all the girls
downstairs for refreshments, made them leave every other seat va-
cant, and then lined the boys up and dropped them into place just
as it happened. lt was fairly hair-raising to wonder whom you
would get to sit by. Clf course l don't suppose the boys cared but
they looked just a little disturbed.
The seventeenth of February we gave a play, "Aunt Maggies
Will," to raise money for the piano Cwhich by the way is all paid
for nowj. Ten girls took part in it and they brought in some fine
hits on some of the folks here in school. Some of the couples that
they slammed, sat in the back of the room and blushed till they
looked like rose bushes. l dasn't tell who they were. '
One evening we met with the llhiladelphian and had a morning
exercise period in which the Faculty sure saw themselves as others
see them. Talk about blushes next morning along Faculty row!
llut what do you think! Two of our number really had the
courage to enter debate this fall-Ruth Eastwood and Myrtle llutler.
Myrtle made the team and Ruth was a sub. lt was just beautiful
to see how well Ruth worked with Harry Gibson, while Myrtle and
Charley White made an ideal squad all by themselves.
Page Sixty Nine
Some of the girls have the idea that they are growing aged in
society work: for example, one night when we were discussing a
new constitution Ada llethke volunteered the information that she
knew they had not had one for a century, at least not since she had
been here. The new one was adopted.
lXliss Miller has been our helper and she has brought us some
new ideas. The tirst of the year we had our "round tables," which
were very helpful. Each table took up a difterent magazine and
studied it in regard to editors, contributors, subjects treated, an-il
The long talked of pins are at last a solid reality instead of a
"glittering generality," as Miss Durant says. 'l'hey are silver, made
in shield shape with the letters A. l.. S.
At present we are busy preparing for the Inter-Society Contest,
which of course we will win, l'oor boys! lt does seem too bad
that they have to be defeated every year, doesn't it?
XX'ell, I must close. l suppose l have forgotten half of the
things l meant to tell you which you will want to know, but it
would be beyond human power to remember everything. So, fare-
well. Your old schoolmate,

CHESTER M. SANFORD '
Mr. Sanford, the man behind the guns in debate and oratory,
has always been closely associated with debate and oratory. Wliile
at Cornell, Mr. Sanford was Varsity orator, but a serious illness pre-
vented him from taking part in the inter-collegiate contest. He also
made the Varsity debate team. As superintendent of the city
schools at Sparta, VVisconsin, Mr. Sanford not only trained the boy
who won the State declamatory contest for Sparta, but he also
coached the Sparta debaters. His work was so effective that Sparta
won from La Crosse two years in succession. Mr. Sanford came
to Platteville in 1908. Here he has done much for the P. N. S.,
having been in charge of the oratorical and debate work the major
portion of the time since that date. In 1909 the Platteville orator,
who was coached by Mr. Sanford, won first place in the state contest
and second in the inter-state contest. In debate Platteville has won
six out of thirteen debates, and not once has lost unanimously.
As a man, Mr. Sanford has no superior. He is genial and con-
siderate. ,The better you know him, the better you like him. Once
you gain his friendship, you are certain of a life-long friend.
Mr. Sanford, we have triecl'to show our appreciation of your
work. NVe can never repay you for the honors which you have
helped bring Platteville. But be assured, the class of 1913 wishes
you and yours all the success and happiness that can possibly come
to you. -
. Page Seventy Five
Now the work was on in earnest. December twentieth Mr.
Sanford took the debaters to Madison, where several days were
spent in valuable reading at the State Historical Library. After the
Xmas vacation many long hours were passed outlining and writing
suitable speeches. At last, February fifteenth, the debates were
in final form. From this date until March sixth every spare moment
was used in memorizing and in perfecting the delivery. March
sixth all work was dropped by the debaters. At noon on this date
the teams which were to go against LaCrosse and Wliitewater left
for the scenes of action, while the team which was to debate against
Milwaukee prepared to entertain the visitors.
At eight o'clock on the evening of March seventeenth the work
of the year came to a climax. Every Platteville debater went into
the fight thoroughly prepared and resolved to do or die. The re-
sults do credit both to the school and to the debaters. To win two
out of three inter-scholastic debates is a record of which any school
may justly feel proud.
Not only did the debaters themselves work incessantly during
weeks preceding the final debates, but all the members of the faculty
were willing to lend a helping hand when needed. Mr. Sanford, Mr.
Martin, and Miss Miller worked especially hard in putting the de-
baters into fighting trim. Mr. A. VV. Kopp and Mr. T. L. Cleary
rendered efficient aid in times of need.
The debates are over. The work,was well done and the record
for the year IQI3 is a good one. In closing we can only wish suc-
cess to the teams which shall represe1.t the I". N. S. in 1914.

R. Harold Gee, the winner of the local oratorical contest, lived
during his youth within a few miles of the natal town of the im-
mortal Shakespeare. The themes of the great dramas have there-
fore a touch of realism for Mr. Gee that can come from personal
experience alone. Not only has he studied Shakespeare from the
standpoint of environment but it has been his privilege to attend the
presentation of the poet's plays that are given each year in the
Memorial Theatre in commemoration of the birth of the immortal
bard. Indeed, he has many times seen some of the greatest actors
interpret Hamlet, the theme of his oration. The influence of associa-
tion and environment has enabled Mr. Gee to write an oration that
is characterized by sincerity and originality.
Platteville has never had an orator who held a warmer place in
the hearts of the students than Mr. Gee. This was shown again
and again. The large delegation which accompanied him to the
state contest and the royal reception with which he was welcomed
home, went to show that Harold Gee has won the esteem and affec-
tion of the students.

E HAMLET THE DANE
The supreme and abiding interest of man is man' himself. No
mystery without is so elusive and so perplexing as the mystery with-
in. The problems which confront the passing ages are dwarfed by
that insistent query as to man, which interrogates the fleeting
years 'twixt the eternities. The great enigma that time and intel-
ligence have failed to solve is human life. ,llut because the human
heart is strangely changeless, the mystery of man is even yet
humanity's profoundest and most fascinating riddle. The change-
less laws of human love, the very humanness of humanity with all
its merriment and pathos, hopes and fears, victories, and defeats, its
origin and destiny, these are the things that have invited in all
times the hungry yet trepid inquiry of our common kind. XfVhere
is he who has not in life's solitudes tried to drop the plummet of
his mind into the deep reaches of his soul? VVho has not prayed a
glimpse of the before and after?
Midst the crowded avenues of history, art, and literature, there
stands one magnetic figure designated as the very incarnation of
this mother-mystery of man. He is the focal point of countless
attributes of our common humanity. HAMLET the Dane, mystic,
philosopher, lover, murderer, man, is not alone "The Sphinx of
Literature," but the multi-colored spectrum of life itself, 'Tis true
he is but half a man, the other half a myth-'fThe airy fabric of
a Poet's brain"-and yet so universal a piece of flesh and blood is
he that from his place in Danish history he has stepped forth, to
tread in solitude, throughout the ages, the corridors of man. Like
the master intellect which gave him birth, he is indeed an ocean,
and withal an ocean that three centuries of sounding have failed to
fathom. Nay, more than that, out upon this trackless main the
greatest mariners of the years have lost their bearingsg he has
eluded their searching, and they have returned nigh unto void.
Taine remarks, "It is the story of moral poisoningng Knight declares,
"The comprehension of 'this tragedy is the history of a man's own
soul", Voltaire concluded Hamlet to be the work of a drunken
savage, "doubt, counselled by a ghost" is the great Hugo's summary,
Goethe says, "He is a lovely, pure, noble, and most moral figure-
without the strength of nerve that makes a heron: while Howard
Furness suggests that "No one of mortal mould fsave Him whose
blessed feet were nailed for our advantage to the bitter crossj ever
trod this earth commanding such absorbing interest as this Hamlet."
Page Eighty TWO
Oh strange paradox! Thou mystery! W'hy dost thou at once
with open arms invite our company to fill our souls with awe and
wonder, and yet with upturned palm forbid our near approach?
This semi-phantom Hamlet, because he has outstripped the
panting ages as they have tried to "Pluck the heart out of his
mystery," is the most arresting figure to the race, and the master
product of the human mind.
Companion with him for a moment if you will. From the slen-
der shoulders of the melancholy figure hang the sombre robes of
filial mourning. But a month or so ago he followed to the open
tomb his kingly and his godly father, whose death came-so the
story went-by the stinging of a serpent. This sorrow has made
of him a shadow upon the splendor of a court that was all too easily
comforted. The wedding of his seeming chaste and virtuous
mother, to his uncle, with such speed that
"The funeral baked meats
Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tablesf'
rather than mitigate his sorrow, lashed his heart with the tempests
of a strange misgiving. All was not well. To this young noble
Dane these things boded nought but ill. Into the yawning chasm
of his soul, his friends poured the strange news of an earthly visi-
tant, an apparition like unto his father. XVith quivering nerve and
hand on hilt, he dragged his shuddering frame to meet the spectre
upon the midnight watch, and there he listened to a tale of woe,
that alas, confirmed the prophecy of his soul. The serpent that
stung his father's life now wore his crown: a lustful hand had
blotted from his mother's cheek the blush of modesty, the nation
was deluded with a murderer's lie, which murderer was none other
than his uncle. lt was a hell of vice, and in its midst, Hamlet, the
youthful dreamer, was called upon to be the vindicator of his family's
honor, and the avenger of his father's murder.
His exhortation found him apt. He took this new-imparted
truth, to him it was a fiaming torch with which to blaze the trail
for retribution. No human breast was ever urged to duty by more
powerful motives nor mortal man confronted with more subtle evils.
Here lie the conflict and the tragedy: "The Hamlet of Shakespeare
in the Denmark of history." A youth of thought and speculation.
with a gentle, sensitive heart, fighting a battle to assert moral order
in a realm of moral confusion and chaos, righting the wrong in his
' ' Page Eighty Three
departing moments only, amid reeking streams of human blood and
a mess of human carnage.
The heart of the Hamlet mystery, and the very core of the inces-
sant controversy that relates to it, seek to explain the reason for his
constant shrinking and vacillating, his failure to obey the message
from the grave and sweep to his revenge. The theories of this delay
may thus be grouped: first, the subjective theory, making the reason
a personal one: and second, the objective theory, which presumes
to find the -cause in the natu1'e of the task assigned to him. Truth
is in both views, the whole truth is in neither. This is a tragedy
of inner confiict and reflection, but it is enacted in a positive paralysis
of circumstances. My friend, it is the master tragedy of life.
The moral turmoil that embroiled the state was no greater than the
inner conflict which surged in Hamlet's mind. The spirit from his
father's grave cried to him "Revenge! Revenge!" but an insistent
voice within him checked his response with those eternal words
"Vengeance is Mine. I will repay." The passion to revenge his
father's murder locked his fingers round his rapierg but his musings
upon death, and the projecting of his thought into that land from
which no traveler returns, left him limp and nerveless. He is a
prince of speculators, brilliant of intellect and spacious of soul,
but his reason wages such constant warfare with his heart that
while the latter urges him to action, the inliuence of his mind con-
trols him, and he remains inert. In a moment of excitement he
swears to enact a terrible deed, from which his reflective moments
make him recoil,
"And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sickled o'er with the pale cast of thought."
The spasm to tling his whole soul into a single act, he may have:
but the power to concentrate his strength and marshal his resources,
to overwhelm the hordes of wickedness which engulfed him, he did
not possess. Vlfithin his mother's chamber, while in the supreme
effort to reclaim her erring soul, he instantly resheathes his rapier
in the mousing courtier who moves behind the arras, leaving him
lifeless who was mistaken for his bettersg and anon, his quaking
hand points his steel upon his murderer-uncle who kneels in vain
to agonize at devotion, but he rests his blade on the pretense of
rather choosing to retain him for the fiames than speed him to felicity.
VVell has the contrast been made between this scene of titful
paralysis and that hurricane of sin engendered by Macbeth. One
invokes the powers of blackness to cover up his crime, the other
craves a ray of light to illuminate his dutyg Macbeth's heinous
selfishness breeds murderous schemes, Hamlets mind requires the
span of life to circumvent his father's slayer, lVlacbeth's active blade
steams with the blood of murder, Hamlets sheath retains its steel
when lust parades before him: Macbeth is black, Hamlet is trans-
lucent, Macbeth, the character of supreme depravity, repels us,
Hamlet, pregnant with intense humanity, attracts us.
So, in harmony with modern thought, we offer Hamlet as the
immortal bard's philosophy of human life and history, the product
of his deep and subtle musings upon the mighty maze of man. He
is the universal type: the pulsing human heart, so free from witch-
craft and self interest that his nature is ever good. His very faults
and weaknesses are born of his humanity, and the sudden flashes
of his genius and triumph are alike mothered. I-Ie is not so much
humanity idealized, as he is humanity individualized. Beneath his
inky cloak the master stroke of genius has placed a "myriad minded"
man. William Hazlitt says, "lt is XNE who are Hamlet." No
man ever lived who might not Find in the great sweep of this man's
soul at least one land mark of his own history. NVe can interpret
him only as we consider the nature of our own minds. One has
said, "The poet's work is to project upon the screen of our imagina-
tion pieces of human life." This is the perfection of such art, made
as 'twere of such dim outlines and with so many wide gaps, that
although we are never left without some suggestion for the com-
pletion, yet we construct Hamlet as we will-nay we construct him
as we must of the many infinite longings and misgivings whose
presence fills the human breast.
ln the narrative and actions of this man is symbolized the every
aspect of that ceaseless warfare between the human will and des-
tiny, between the law that orders all within, and the relentless
forces that operate without. lt is the episode of every man who
struggles through darkness into light. This mystic- prince person-
ifies that divine sense of justice, that inherent hate of wrong, that
craving after liberty and truth which is the sole dynamic of our
progress. The truth of the delineation judge, oh you, whose souls
have braved the agony of moral conflict, whose thoughts persist in
straying where no footing can be found, whose lamp of youthful
hope has burned but dimly in your native born distrustfulness,
whose conflict has ever been against the unequal odds of circum-
Page Eighty Five
stance. Here is a soul that mirrorizes you. Here also he who
stoutly holds his tongue till truth impels his speech: whose arms
will wage no war till honor needs his blowg whose tears How warm
and free e'en though his blow draw the oppressor's blood, and yet
whose spirit of wrath and vengeance sweeps at last upon deceit and
lustfulness with the fury of a hurricane.
X'Vho will belittle the heroism of this great struggle? Behold
this man beneath the high, blue skies of youthg in the withering
blast that issued from a father's grave: and hear him in the sunless
days that followed, breathing forth the philosophy of his soul in
this immortal prccept: .
'tRightly to be great
ls not to stir without great argument,
llut greatly to find quarrel in a straw
XVhen honor's at the stake."
Stared at by lust, haunted by murder, plotted against by sing
robbed of throne, lover, mirth, slumber, and almost of virtueg driven
to the verge of suicide, hounded by a murderer-villain: Hamlet
gives his life to his momentous task. 'Tis "upon such sacrifices
the gods themselves throw incense."
Wie are always loath to bid adieu to such a man as thisg yet
with his noble friend Horatio, we give him once again "Good-night,"
leaving with him some part of us, of weakness or of strength, to
make of him the universal type, whose mystic greatness gathers yet
more lustre amid the mists of time.

THE BAND V
'The Platteville Normal Band is the largest organization in the
music department, This year, as Well as in years past, the band
has made itself felt in the school and the community. During the
warm months concerts have been given in the park and in addition
to these several outside engagements have been filled, the chief of
which was the one at Galena where the band furnished the music
for the General Grant celebration. The most enjoyable event of
the year was the trip to the contest at Stevens Point. The boys
not only had a good time, but it is said that everybody sat up and
took notice when the band began playing. All agree both at home
and abroad that Platteville has a great band.

NVhen one looks back now upon the football season of IQIZ,
he is impressed with the fact that though the victories were few
the good results obtained were many. What is the real test of
success if this is not it? Coach Schott surely had a task on his
hands when he undertook to make a football team out of the "green
stuffl' that reported for work in response to his call. There were
some who had never seen a football game, some who had never even
seen a football. NVhat results could one obtain from this sort of
squad in one year?
Coach Schott showed 'em. A sideliner who had witnessed the
first game which was with Dubuque High and then had been present
at the La Crosse game, the last of the season, would surely have
opened his eyes in wonder. And he would have had some cause, too.
The squad is to be commended for their faithfulness, their per-
severance, their bull-dog grit- These characteristics, developed
greatly because of their football training, are surely worthy ones
and ones that will help win many of the battles of life.

"Shakes", the uwhoppern of the bunch, well de- :
serves the name leader. His personality and determ- .E
ination won the respect of his team-mates. When :
"Shakes" was at the helm, the fellows had confidence, E
and were willing to follow his heels through fire and E
brimstone. "Quake" could always count on gaining E
over "Shalces's" tackle and his opponents learned mighty E
soon to fear him. With much brighter prospects for E
next year, "Shakes" promises to do things on the I9l3 E

E "Don" had had no previous experience in the

"Pug," a man who has practically grown up on E

E "Mutt" hailed from the local high school. "Mutt" 5

E quite reliable. 4 E
E HOMRICH-Guard E
E "Les", better known as "Homy" on the grid- E
E iron, well merited his place on the team. The begin- E
E ning of the season saw him with no experience, but he E
E developed into a strong defensive player, possessed of E
E a keenness which enabled him to diagnose the oppon- E
E ent's attack and to break up a play before it was well E
E started. "Homy" was the only man on the squad who E
E played every second of every game the whole season. E
E We regret that he will not be with us next "season," E
'Q "Happy" came to us from Blanchardville but
: was as green as the rest of them and then some. No
E one was more willing than "Elmer", and no one took
E his criticisms in better style. He was unusually scrappy
E and carried one or more defective "lamps" throughout
E the entire season.

E "Eddie"-The little fellow stuck at guard the whole
E season. He played his best game at Lacrosse, the last
E of the season. Eddie was the subject of much kidding
E but he always had an equal share to return to the of-
E fender. "Eddie" made quite a, hit with the tackling

"Platter"-Put on the job at tackle, Platter stayed there E
the whole season. "Platter" was conceded to be the E
greenest of the green, for he avowed he had never even E
seen a football before he entered the Normal. He de- E
veloped into a powerful man at defense and because he E
knew how to stiff-arm, he was the best ball carrier of E
the bunch. E

E THE SEASON E
: The basketball season of l9l2-I3 was a dandy. No one will dispute this fact. Yet E
E prospects at the beginning of the season, when good material was scarce and poor form was :
E hanging over some of the old standbys, were not what one would call exceptionally 'E
E bright. By dint of many hard practices and some excellent coaching by Coach Schott, a E
E team of championship caliber was developed by the close of the season. Don't thinlc E
E for a minute that this was accomplished without each fellow being on the job every minute E
E of the season. Sufficient evidence of the good form shown by the team at the close of the :
E season is the sort of game they played to wind up the season. That Oshkosh-Platteville E
- game was a corker and will be remembered by the participants and also sidelincrs for some :
E time to come. The games with Nlilwaulcee were memorable ones, too. E
E There was one thing about the team this year that was noticeable above all else and E
E that was their "never say die" attitude. Although often put at a great disadvantage, they E
E lcept plodding along, making their opponents exert themselves to the limit and the sideliners E
3 sit up and take notice. E
- Each member of the team is glad that he was able to make the "varsity" and will not :
5 soon forget the hard battles in which he fought for the honor of old P. N. S. E

E HENNING E
5 Captain and star forward of the squad, was a great :
E asset to this year's team as well as the teams of former :
: years. "Hake" played a hard game all the time and E
E covered much floor space. These attributes kept his -
E opposing guard "going some" to stick to him. Because E
E of his grit and speed and his ability to lead the team E'
: much of the success obtained during the l9I3 season E
5 was due to his efforts. :
E HENDERSON-Center E
E "Si" was the giant of the whole bunch, tow- :
E ering above all in stature. He was a very conscientious :
E worker and always took his criticisms in the best of E
E spirit. Although green on the fine points of the game :
E at first, he learned readily and played some really E
E "classy" games before the season was over. ln fact he E
E was the whole "cheese" in the-Lenox game at Hopkin- E
E ton, Iowa. "Si" is going to make somebody hustle to E
E beat him out at center next winter. :

Sangster became one of the team the last part
of the season. He demonstrated in the few games in
which he played that he knows the game and knows
how to play it. He overcame the handicap of being
light and showed in the Oshkosh game that he was able
to cope with the biggest of them. He plays a speedy
game and covers his man well notwithstanding that he
figures prominently in the scoring. It is hoped that
he will play next year, for his services will be much in
demand. He is surely an asset.

Dyer is about as fast a man as "there is."
When he gets going, there's nothing to it at all. Al-
though he didn't play the entire season, whenever he
did, his help was very materially felt. His accuracy
was very marked, toog and if he wanted to, Dyer could
sift them through the net with as much regularity as
any of 'em. He will be of good service to next year's
team if he "comes out".
given, "Homy" was among the aspirants. Being a
member of last year's second team, he was in line for
a varsity position. In the beginning he gave little prom-
ise of varsity caliber, but he soon demonstrated his
right to wear a "red jersey". He was a valuable man
in scrimmage, covered his man well, and played a
strong, defensive game. "Horny" not only climbed his
way to the top in athletics, but had the habit of climb-
ing on the back of the train just as the train was pull-
ing out of town when the team went away on trips.

"Don", though handicapped somewhat by his
light weight, makes a good little stationary guard. He
covers his man well and is very aggressive. His play-
ing in the Lenox and Milwaukee games was surely first
class. "Don" never missed a basketball practice if he
could possibly help it and his. interest throughout the
season was always at a top-notch pitch. His bull-dog
grit is one characteristic of which he may be proud and
is one thing which will win him more than one kind of
"Bob" was a hard worker and it was this
predominating quality that won his official "P", But he
had other good traits besides this. Being always "in
the game" with all that was in him, he kept his man
guessing as to where he would be next. Bob was great
on "follow in" shots and got away with a good many
of them during the course of the season. He will be
right in line for next year.

E The Junior Prom, which occurred on the evening of May six- E

E In fact, in many respects the juniors outclassed the Seniors as enter- E
: tainers. Elaborate preparations were made by the committees in 5
E charge. E
I The "feed" arranged by the grub committee under the capable E
: guidance of "our', Emily, was the best everg the gym was a bower E

The Senior banquet, the greatest event of the Ayear from the
Seniors' point of view. occurred on the fourth of April. The banquet
was served in the gymnasium under the watchful eyes of the Eagles.
After supper while the floor was being prepared for dancing, a
program was given in the main room. At nine-thirty a college rally
was held in the kindergarten and dancing was begun in the gym-
nasium. During the evening a delightful little comedy, "A Box of
Monkeys," was staged.

Indeed, a part of the enjoyment of the evening was due to the
fact that the pleasure of each guest was given thoughtful considera-
tion. llut all things have an end. lt is ever thus. Too soon the
approach of the "wee sma' hours" ended the joys that come from
mingling in friendly comradeship. Everybody had a good time.

"THE DEESTRICK SKULE"
On the last day of February, Mr. XVarner went back to the
good old days and taught a Deestrick Skule. Attired in a light blue
suit, a yellow satin vest, a white wig, and a lace tie, he made a very
imposing appearance. If his school were representative of the
schools of olden times, the children of the good old days were cer-
tainly no better than now,
XVoodrow lfVilson was there in all the glory of overalls and long
hair. Izzy A. Christian acted a negative answer to his name. Fac-
totem was permitted to pass the water. ,lseldoma Spark was a
typical old maid in actions.
During the afternoon program, the members of the board came
in and made speeches, Farmer Schott and Squire Sanford giving
speeches of greatest length. XVonder how many of the faculty were
reminded of the joys and sorrows of their school days.
WATCH PARTY-MARCH 28
The Platteville crowd sat tired and anxious in the Stevens l'oint
Auditorium. The people at home danced and paced the halls while
waiting for the decision. For once in the history of the Platteville
Normal, the students had enough dancing. They were actually tired
of it. At last Mr. Russell, growing desperate, telephoned for news of
some kind. The answer came that Platteville had not won. The
hour was very late. Fond parents had become alarmed about their
young olfsprings and began sending messages to see what had hap-
pened. 1-low could they know that the normalites were waiting for
the news that did not come?

"Oh wad some power the giftie gie us
To see oursel's as others see us."
The signal peals forth, Miss QDobsonj Danforth hurries to
her chair to get her skirts systematically arranged before the plat-
form rush begins.
Mr. QWhitej Wfilliams enters with dignified niien, takes his
accustomed seat. arms himself with a song book, and prepares for
anything that might come his Way.
Miss Cliilpatrickj Mitchell arrives just in time to rescue her
usual chair from Prof. Uonesj Dudley. Mr. QI-Iomrichj Schott
makes his triumphal entry. The plot deepens and the interest of
the audience increases.
President QCooleyj Sutherland urges everyone to watch the
clock and come to order promptly at the sound of the bell.
The remainder of the faculty wend their way to the rostrum.
Miss Qlierriganj VVeld and Prof. CCallowj Wilgtls seem very much
absorbed in an important topic on Modern History.
Professor CDyerj Churchill begins the morning exercises. "Num-
ber IO of the Supplement--second hymn. Everybody sing!" Ac-
cordingly the voices of the audience rise and fall with the movement
of the directors baton.
Notices by the President are next in order.
"Regular meeting of the Y. M. C. A. at 4:00 this afternoon.
Everybody welcome. Signed by the President."
Miss QVVellersj Miller in her emphatic didactic tone says, "That
is Y. VV. C. A., President Sutherland." The President nods his
thanks, adjusts his noseglasses, and reads-"Meeting of the spelling
squad in Mr, Martins room this noon. Please be prompt."
After the usual admonitions concerning the excellent song books
and opera chairs, the President takes his seat. Other faculty an-
nouncements follow. '
Professor Qonesj Dudley, "My trained fieas have escaped from
the museum. Anyone knowing of their whereabouts. please say
so." He withdraws his hands from the depths of his coat pockets
and takes his seat.

Elly: ltiinnmfr Q
Professor D er Churchill nods and smiles then announces,
, . . , ,
"They re down in the music room. '
At this Professor QWhitej Williams has a spasmodic attack of
laughter, and Miss QBrannanj Durant folds her arms and actually
forgets herself so far that a suspicion of a real' smile lurks about
the corners of her mouth. Miss tllobsonj Danforth is just tickled
to death and smiles all over her face.
Professor QSelleckj Russell confers with the President and
after having difficulty to quell the pugilistic tendencies of his knees
Lcaused by stage frightj, he announces the next number of the
Lecture Course. All young men are urged to purchase at least
Professor QGibsonQ Johnson entreats every member of the
"Sunday School" to boost the debates, and Professor QZarwellj San-
ford asks all the debate squad to meet promptly at 6:45.
Mr. QI-Ioinriclij Schott next assumes his usual stage attitude,
strokes his chin, and proceeds with a reel of his platform speeches.
Every one listens attentively.
Professor QSaetherj Reynolds reads the proceeds of the Pneu-
matic l-llowout. Was it gross or net proceeds?
Miss QBillingsj Gardner has pleasant dreams of an ideal library
where no one would think of whispering or disturbing others. QThis
was all a dreamj
Miss QAllenj Purcell announces the meeting of her student
teachers promptly at one o'-clock. All student teachers are over-
whelmed with the anticipations.
After a lengthy conference with Professor QCal'lowj Wfilgus,
Miss Qlierriganj Weld announces the new course to be offered in
history. Ullluffers only are admitted." Consternation reigns
among the studentsg then a suppressed giggle is heard from the
history students, Miss Qlierriganj Weld polishes her watch chain,
blushes a delicate shade of scarlet, and takes her seat.
Professor Uenksj Martin rises to make the Final announcement,
"Now I'll prove that I am not a blulfer. I said that I would make
those batter cakes and I'll do it. If any number of you will come
to my house in sufficiently small squads, I'll show you what I can do."

April 1, ,I3.
What do you suppose! There is the loveliest boy here and he
is just showering me with attention. just think, we have two
moving picture shows here and I have gone down to each one with
him once. Another time we walked out to Ipswich and came back
E on the afternoon train. Oh, mamma, we had the grandest
on that trlpg he had a package of pepperlnlnt with hlm. Last night
each got a strawberry sundae. Honestly, mamma, I never knew
that such nice boys existed. I always thought they were just the
results of poets' fancies, And he is so good about taking me around
of the lecture course, and the recital of Madame Caroline NVhite, have
come off since I knew him, but I really didn't care about going to
E tllese anywayi

GUY HOADLEY'S PSALM OF LIFE
Qwith apologies to Longfellowj
Tell me not in mournful numbers,
I am now a bashful boyg
For her face comes in my slumbers,
And life is just one great joy.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the main room is the place:
There I go, to there returnest
just to see her smiling face.
Full enjoyment and not sorrow
Is our destined end or wayg
just to talk, for each tomorrow
Finds us something more to say.
School is long, but time is Heetingg
And my heart, though stout and brave,
Still like muffled drums is beatingg
For she's a loyal senior, grave.
Trust no future, howe'er pleasant!
For she'l1 be far from my sight!
Fuss-fuss-in the living present!
To a show go every night.
Then let me be up and doing,
XVith a heart for any fate:
Still a-spooning, still a-wooing.
Learn to love but also wait.
E VVhy is Prof. NVarner's head like Heaven?

THE TRAGEDY OF THE DEMOCRATIC MULES
VVe met one night at Selleck's place,
To outline our debates.
Billy, he was there on time,
But Ken11y, he was late.
Stehr and Selleck made a start
And worked like, "O, ye gad!"
But Kenny, when he did arrive,
He changed the thing, bedad.
We worked and worked and worked
And then we worked some more.
Oh no! I guess we didn't work,
We didn't work, begor.
We talked and talked of many things,
Old, new, and up to date,
We talked of school and politics
But not of our debate.
Kenny started up a song,
Entitled "Moonlight Bay."
The noise it was so treacherous
The "mule" began to bray.
The question we now struggle o'er
And we would like to hear,
VVhich one the braying mule might be,
Gene Selleck or lelill Stehr.
They both are Democrats, you know,
And both sing "Moonlight Hay,"
llut Selleck is the only one
NVhom Churchill taught to bray.
But O! the work we should have done.
It suffered like the deuce.
Our minds, they would not work at all,
And such was our excuse.

EXTRACTS FROM PSYCHOLOGICAL DIARIES
Sherman is original in his ideas. I-Ie let us in on one of them.
Our data came directly from his diary.
Feb. 26, '13-Wliile reading Iames's Psychology today, I came
upon the word genius. I associated the word with myself imme-
diately, for I am a rational thinker, a practical inventor, and an
authoritative scientist. I My latest product is a perpetual motion
machine. Below I have graphically represented a semi-diagram-
matic likeness, which is almost self-explanatory.
Each arm in ascending has a resistance of six units. 'Each arm
in descending has a power of nine units. "A" neutralizes HB".
Nine plus nine minus six plus six equals six, the mechanical ad-
The following was taken from the diary of Mr. Brewer:
Feb. 24, '13-This morning as I sat in the Auditorium study-
ing, Mr. Callow entered the room. Immediately I detected the odor
of violets, with which he was saturated. At once I thought of Lu-
cile, for she always uses violet perfume. For nearly an hour I sat
there, my stream of consciousness being monopolized by "her".
Everything else had drifted into obscurity, but I still visualized
Lucile and conjectured as to a probable future. w

Lucile's affections for me.

E sonal appearance: :
E Nov, 20, 'I2-Today while running my fingers over my upper lip, E
: I received a peculiar sensation. Hy deduction I found the cause to E
E be several unassuming hairs. Like a Hash of lightning a brilliant 5
1' idea occupied the lime-light of my mind. I would raise a mustache :
E as does Prof. Wilgus, and in so doing would bring about attention :
E which could not be obtained otherwise. E
g Nov. 23, '12-Eureka! Three more hairs appear. :

E As it busily spelt away, ' g
