THE CLASS OF 1912
With the signs of autumn nearing.
In September, 190S,
To our S. P. X. Assembly.
Students gathered, small and great.
And when all had found their places,
And the classes were arranged,
‘Mong this vast assembled body.
Sixty-six 'peared rather strange.
'Twas the class of timid Freshmen Who till then had known no life Save their happy days of High School.
Ever free from care and strife.
Hard the task seemed which confronted Each and every one of them:
School itself was not a pleasure.
As it formerly had been.
But as time passed they grew bolder.
Encouraged by the work when done:
And the girls in athletics
Twice the championship had won.
Look! Where once stood timid Freshmen.
Now there stands a sturdy band;
And while Duty once seemed drudgery.
Now it finds a willing hand.
Thus we part with Stevens Point Normal,
Proud to say we’ve conquered all;
Proud to enter on life’s journey.
Each to answer Duty's call.
What lies in our future pathway We no better know than you:
But with ever conquering spirit
Let us face each task we do. ——
Elizabeth Walterbaih.ehr jlris of 1912
WE, the Class of 1912 of the State Normal School of Stevens Point. Wisconsin, being of sound mind and memory, do make, publish, and declare this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills, bequests, and devises by us made:
To the Juniors, we leave the cherry tops with all their privileges and responsibilities, and we earnestly request that they endeavor to reconcile the school to our loss by doing all in their power to uphold the dignity and seriousness of the position. As an aid in securing the former quality, Reid McWithey bequeaths his predominating characteristics to Alvin Peterson. To encourage the development of the latter in the future Senior Class. Lucy Johnofski leaves her air of thinking of the things beyond this world to Gladys Levenseller.
As an incentive to do good strong school work, you will find the records of the standings of Lila Blank, Lula Gebert. and Sarah and Rose Tovrog. As an inspiration to exert yourselves to do things worth while, we will leave with you memories of the music that Bessie Smith drew forth from the piano, the songs that Mae O’Malley sang, the oratory of Harry Young. The dramatic ability of R. B. Woodworth becomes the property of J. C. Wilberscheid: while Henry Schulz begs to confer his popularity with the girls to Paul Schanen exclusively.
In order that the president of the next Senior Class may Ik capable of successfully fulfilling the responsible position, we bequeath to whoever he or she may be the business ability of Henry Schellhouse, the ambition of Janette Johnston,the conscientiousness of Helen Ostrum, the optimism of Mrs. Flagler, the tact of Irene Fcely, the self-assurance of Hazel Hoffman, the amiability of May Tibbetts, the originality of Marie Poser, the propriety of H. P. Meade, the rosy( ?) cheeks of Gusta Quien, the gracefulness of Elsa Ringletaube. and, as a finishing touch, the diamond ring that Nell Kratz’s mother gave her.
Elizabeth Waltcrbach and Kate Gwin leave their cheerful smiles to Alma Larson and Don Waite, while Marguerite Harshaw cheerfully bequeaths her frankness to Agatha Houlehan. To facilitate good preparation for Current Event classes. Florence Forsythe bequeaths her weekly copy of the “Gazette” to the class as a whole. Georgia Biegler bestows her good intentions and studious Tuesday nights upon Ruth Hetzel. Alma Stengcr leaves her Carpenter to aid the students in building more stately mansions for their intellectual qualities.
To Mr. Patterson’s classes, we bequeath Doris Murray’s "want to know” attitude: to Loretta Boursier, Nora Nyhus’ habit of saying, "Oh Kids, do you think he will be sore?” to Irene Wilhelm, all the gym classes that Lillian Zantow so artfully avoided; to Lois Smith and Nelly Cook, the loftiness of Grace Cassels and Dorothy Salter; to Irene McPhail. the placidity of Agnes and Clara Tufte.
The basketball girls. Anna Arnold. Fay Holum, Rose Weltman. Nettie Welsh, Lela Potter, and Ruth Bennett will all of the good luck they had in the tournament this year to the champions of next year. Mildred Alexander’s stand-in with the Facuitv is left to Helen Walters: Ellen Hungerford's authoritative manner, to Maude Brown; Lucile Potter’s unassuming air. to Loella Ballou; the diminutiveness of Lois Holum and Gertrude Maas, to Mable Rice and Cora Dickerson: and Kate Pyatt’s position as a leader in the Y. W. C . A., to Ruth Scribner. The ‘‘Suffragette tendencies” of Mary Carroll. Ellen Hungerford, and Irene Fcely, we gratefully bestow upon Mabel Rice. Helen Stemen, and Helen Walters.
To whoever can use them to the best advantage, we leave Grace Welsh’s liking for the art of graceful oral expression. Bessie Burdick's aesthetic tendencies. Bernice Caulev’s courageous bluffing. Meta Fluck’s Kindergarten class. Lulu Herrick's ability to see a joke. Janet McCreedv’s stand-in with her teachers. Selma Kaliskv’s artistic efforts. Maude McKenzie’s perseverance. Florence Lincoln’s pedagogic air, Bess Pankratz's love for study. Ethel Whittaker’s giggle. Mvrtelle Wilbur’s primness, Leda Otto’s tactfulness, and Edith Wallace’s pass to Plover.

IT is needless to tell those who have any faint conception of the excellence and worth of the Junior Class of ’13 that their undertakings and activities, social, athletic, literary or otherwise, during this year, have been the finest and most successful in the history of the school. But considering the Juniors, their spirit and energy, and their many good attributes too numerous to mention, how could that which they undertook be otherwise than successful?
The most important event of the Junior year was the Annual Junior Debate with Oshkosh. A preliminary was held early in the year and three boys, Arthur Murphy, Otto Schreiner, and Alvin Peterson won the honor of representing our school in the debate, with Mable Rice as alternate. The debaters for Oshkosh were Robert Fisher, Charles Meyer, Marvin Wallach, and George Maxey, alternate. The question was: Resolved, That the dissolution of the large trusts endangers the best economic interests of the United States. Stevens Point supported the affirmative of this question; Oshkosh upheld the negative. A committee of Juniors met every train to welcome the delegates, whom they escorted to the hotels, to the Normal School, and various other places of interest. We recognized the delegates and debaters by their yellow and white ribbons, and we were recognized by the scholarly look (distinguishing every S. P. X. student). The committee cheerfully sacrificed their dinners to meet the noon train and were amply rewarded by the cordial greetings of the newcomers, who scornfully and indifferently brushed by, entirely overlooking the committee. In fact, after all their pains their only reward was that of staying after school to make up forty-five minutes of literature. Such are virtue's rewards!
In the afternoon songs and yells were practiced to insure our victory in the debate and at last the “momentous moment” arrived and at eight o’clock the audience gathered to witness this war of words. The stage was fittingly decorated with streamers of gold and white, and purple and gold, large banners of each school alx ve the respective debaters, who were “clad in conventional black, way through.” Cheers, songs, and yells opened the program. Then President Keith, of Oshkosh Normal, presiding, made the audience welcome and spoke very appropriately to the two schools concerning their friendly exhibition of rivalry.
The debate began. Arthur Murphy of Stevens Point opening the affirmative. He spoke very fluently and presented many good points for the affirmative. Throughout his debate, as well as that of the other speakers, one could see how very carefully and efficiently he had been coached by Mr. Raymond Patterson. He opened the debate well and great applause was given his effort. We knew that our side was the best and that we would win!
Next came the opening speaker for the negative, Robert Fischer. His points were good and he impressed them on his hearers with great force. His voice was strong and forceful, his whole delivery was excellent, “he sawed the air much with his hands.”
S. P. X. realized that we had a strong opponent; we saw that the other side had points in their favor, too.
“A voice we knew rang loud and clear,
Twas Otto Schreiner that we heard,”
Who was the second speaker for the affirmative. He gave his many points in a clear, impressive, and pleasing manner, and it seemed that as far as points counted the big pace trusts were at least no danger, if not a blessing. Throughout the debate the points for
j the affirmative were greatly elucidated by the frequent use. the many twistings and
turnings, groanings and creakings, the silky, sad, uncertain rustling of each sheet of 4 the “medicine chart” (so styled by an opponent) at the rear. If one forgot, until they
A could collect their thoughts to go on, they turned to the chart; while for our oppo-
’ j nents. who frequently imbibed aqua pura, i. e., city water as clear as their arguments,
the resort to the pitcher gave them a chance to recall the next lines.
Next, Charles Meyer, the second speaker on the negative, delivered his debate in a most pleasing manner. He was a very able speaker: his voice was clear and distinct and he had good command of his audience and his arguments. We wondered whether the negative might not win, after all!U ljp Jriii of 1912
Then the last speaker for the affirmative, Alvin Peterson, summed up the multitude of arguments for the affirmative and added a multitude more. He used force in presenting these and illustrated each one. Surely all the points were in our favor. Of course we’d win! Then the last speaker for the negative, Marvin Wallach, who we must acknowledge was a very bitter opponent of the trusts; indeed, he informed the audience that he did not uphold the ‘‘Paris Green” trust for fear they might think him a representative of it. He proved himself very convincing, sarcastic and credulous. His credulity was proven by his attempt to prove his point by a quotation from a daily newspaper as authority. But we wern’t so sure of winning when he sat down; we had our doubts.
Alvin Peterson then delivered the rebuttal and our hopes were raised. We didn’t know. Of course we had all the points on our side,—pretty near all,—yet their delivery might be considered better, though to us naturally the voices of our debaters were sweeter by far and their arguments more convincing than those of the opponents. Each judge might vote out of courtesy for Oshkosh, for the negative, thinking that the other two would of course vote for Stevens Point. The judges chosen were: Prof. Fling, Xeenah: Prof. A. D. S. Gillette, Superior: and Supt. C. W. Otto, Marshfield. Fates, the judges, were against us. After our expectations and hopes, two to one in favor of the negative! But even this supreme and crushing blow was not fatal to the optimism and the spirit of S. P. X. We were thankful that one judge voted for us, and from the way we yelled we might have won the debate. So we were victors, too—both schools were the victors. We’re glad to have had such a clever opponent. Oshkosh, congratulations! Vet we feel proud of the showing we made, of our team and their efforts. We thank Mr. Patterson for devoting his time and energy for them. We “trust” the debate was satisfactory to Oshkosh, that they feel that they were treated fairly and squarely and royally in every respect, and that they like us and enjoyed Stevens Point. But don’t be sure you’ll beat us next year, Oshkosh. We‘ll beat you yet; just wait and see!
Along other lines as well, the Juniors have been equally successful. Their social success was marked when in the early fall they gave their reception, one of the best attended and most pleasing receptions of the school year. The gymnasium was beautifully decorated with the school and class colors. An entertaining program was given, after which dancing was enjoyed for the remainder of the evening. During the dancing, dainty refreshments were served. All went home that evening, we are sure, thinking how quickly and enjoyablv the evening was spent, how successful the reception was, and what royal entertainment they received.
Another “howling” success of the Juniors was the Junior Slam Gallery at the Annual Fair. It was not conducted for mercenary gain, and the mere nominal sum of five cents was charged for admittance. For five cents
“Was the gifte gie us,
To see ourselves as others see us.”
The gallery contained many locaL hits, and indeed deserved the name of “slam” gallery. One recipient of a slam became so wildly enthusiastic about it that he frantically and selfishly tore it from the wall for himself. The slams were indeed successful.
One of the most unique calendars that was ever printed this same class put forth. It was the representation of the Xormal School, the outline of the covers and the leaves being a design of the Xormal building. A large “JUXIORS” adorned the cover (for aren’t the Juniors the biggest, best and most important part of the Xormal?) Within were the various pages and on these the scenes familiar to every student. Such a fine calendar was appreciated and a large sale of them proved this Along social, literary and business lines they have proven themselves capable.
Also in Athletics! Why, didn’t the Junior girls basketball team win the championship of the school in the tournament? Didn’t they easily wrest the much coveted cup from all competitors? So now, Seniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen, admit that for general all round success in every school activity you must award the palm to the Juniors, and be thankful that you have had any show at all with such a strong, talented, and spirited class as that of 1913.

THE CLASS OF 1913
Full eighty Junior ships are we A-sailing on great Normal Sea ;
The strongest fleet that e’er made track I’pon this water's mighty hack.
Come we did from far and near From oceans fair and rivers clear;
All scattered was our mighty fleet Till on these waters we did meet.
Xot all alike equipped are we:
'Tis sad to say. but so must be.
Some can easily face the gale.
While others make a strenuous sail.
Our trip is not from dangers free.
For perils face all ships at sea.
Each captain knows these dangers well. And his little craft does safe propel.
But scarce old dangers we have cleared When mighty rocks again we’ve neared; But quick and well each pilot steers His little craft away from fears.
And so the crafts do onward sail In days of calm and wind and gale.
In paths of sorrows and of joys.
All guided by the helping bouvs.
Us forty weeks the waves have tossed; Now the waters we have crossed.
And soon will dawn that pleasant day When we shall enter Senior Bay.
And let us hope when there we sail And face once more the mighty gale. That we may float, with flags unfurled. Into the harbor of the World.

11 to Stevens Point you come to stay You’ll hear of a boy called S. A.
In the Normal he is enrolled.
And for his classmates is too bold.
He walks the halls, this lad half grown.
As if the Normal were his own:
With wind he’s filled up every lobe This would-be ruler of the globe.
On the girls he casts his eye As them he slowly passes by,
And soon, we think, he’ll have a match. This Normal lad whom some call “Satch.”
In athletics he takes much joy
And makes awful stabs for a little bov :
And be it track or baseball game,
He keeps on stabbing just the same.
Basketball his pet does seem,
And once he followed S. P. X.'s team On a two-dav trip out of town And served the players as their clown.
Now. I guess enough we’ve said.
And if. my friend, these lines you’ve read You. perhaps, will want to know Who is this lad that we praise so.
We ask a moment of attention,
And will not hold you in suspension.
But tell you now. dear gent or lady.
This Normal lad is H. P. Brady.

THEiRHYME OF THE ATHENAEM—CHIYESA
In the Normal Assembly,
Or perchance in the Art Annex,
Met the tribe of Ohiyesa Jointly with the Athenaeum.
To the council came the tribesmen,
Loyal tribesmen of the union,
With the music and oration.
Thus to demonstrate their prowess.
At the desk with feathers waving In the atmosphere of learning Sat the big chief of the Indians,
With his loyal braves about him.
Sometimes from our midst a brave scout Fleet of foot and large of stature Would the message of Wakonda To the Forum-Arena carry.
Saving, “Pale-face friends, I offer From our Big Chief, friendly greeting,
Bringing to your midst this peace pipe,
Hahar's peace, that shall continue.
“And to further this relation.
We invite you to our pow-wow.
To our festival of dancing
In the Normal School Gymnasium.
“And we’ll dance and feast in gladness,
To the torn-tonis rythmic measure.
Till the night call of the Sand Man Shall put to end our pleasure.”
Thus they made the winter brighten,
Dwelling in the mighty long-house,
Till the warm, soft breeze of summer Called them to their little wigwams.

AS we look back over the first year of the Athenaeum-Ohiyesa Society, we feel confident that it has been a success. It is to our programs that we point with some little pride as reflecting our best efforts.
Our first program was given on the twenty-ninth day of September. Since that we have enjoyed over a dozen splendid meetings. To our faculty advisers and our program committees, as well as to the members taking part, we owe our success. They have given us a good variety of essays, recitations, songs, debates, short plays, and even a mock presidential nominating convention. Xot only have our own members taken part in the meetings, but members of the faculty—Professors Hippensteel, Lusk, Patterson, Culver have addressed us. The Athenaeum-Ohiyesa has given two public programs during the year, October 27 and March 22.
Although our list of active members is not as large as it should be. those who have been with us have been earnest, enthusiastic members. We are sure that we demonstrated our spirit on the night of the contest, when in friendly rivalry with the other society we gave our society veil,—
Rah! Rah! Rah!
With what we have accomplished and with renewed determination, we hope to continue our success and influence along this line of school activity in the coming year.eljf Jria of 1912
O’er the stage in white and purple Our glorious colors fly:
Cheer on cheer, like volleyed thunder Echoes to the sky.
See the Forum-Arena winning,
Gaining score by score.
Then "Fight, fight, fight,” for we win to-night, Forum-Arena forever more.
Give the cheer for Forum-Arena For we’ll win today:
We will show the little Indians That we still hold sway.
Raise your voices, then, and rally,
‘‘Victory or die!”
And we’ll give the grand old cheer.
As our team goes marching by.

THE fifteenth day of December was the day on which the Forum-Arena and the Athenaeum-Ohiyesa Literary Societies were to compete in their first annual contest for the literary honors of the year. The contest was looked upon as being the big event of the year, and to the day on which it was to be held we looked forth with eager expectations. The contestants, who early in the year had received the honor of being chosen to represent their respective societies, were undergoing a strenuous program of preparation and rehearsals under the able supervision of Professors Cavins, Patterson and Smith.
As the day of the contest drew nearer and nearer the enthusiasm in both camps grew tenser and tenser. "Contest” was the word on every lip and the subject of all conversations. Joy reigned among the Forum-Arenaites and every member prognosticated victory. Athenaeum-Ohivesians expressed satisfaction and dreamed not of defeat. Roth societies nourished that feeling of confidence that is only to be found where loyalty is king.
The longed-for day arrived. Forum-Arenaitcs showed their loyalty by proudly displaying the purple and white, while the white and red of our rivals made them very conspicuous. Cheers and yells were practiced and the stage was decorated suitably for the occasion. At eight o’clock in the evening, fourteen contestants, the pride and choice of both societies, sat on the rostrum and faced the large audience in attendance. After considerable enthusiastic singing and cheering by the members of both societies and a splendid vocal solo by Miss Jessie Hill, the contest began.
The first speaker to be heard from was Henry Schellhouse. the Athenaeum-Ohiyesa debator, who, with the aid of his colleague. Nell Kratz. endeavored to prove that dissolving the large trusts endangered the best economic interests of the country. Opposing them were Henry Schulz and Irene Fcely. in whose debating abilities the Forum-Arenaites had placed great hopes. W hen the debate was over we saw two of the seven points won. Instrumental music followed. A piano solo, rendered by Bessie Smith, was the contribution of the Forum-Arena, while Henrietta Rergholte of the Athenaeum-Ohiyesa rendered a violin solo. Roth selections were well received by the audience and both societies were firm in their belief that they had won the point. ‘‘The Solution of the Irish Problem” was the theme of the interesting essay which was given by Mary Carroll, representing our rival society. This selection was followed by one of equal interest, "The Duty and Opportunity of the Schools in the Peace Movement,” bv Florence Schafer of our society.
Perhaps the closest duel of the evening was waged by Frances Roberts of the Forum-Arena and Rurh Hetzel of the Athenaeum-Ohiyesa. The readings ‘‘Little Gallant Dickie" and a selection from "The Lion and the Mouse” were the weapons wielded. Vocal music followed. The Athenaeum-Ohiyesa and Forum-Arena were represented by Lila Blank and Mac O’Malley respectively. The former sang the song entitled “Sing Me to Sleep.” while the song which was sung by the latter was entitled “My Dreams.” Finally, the last number was on. R. B. Woodworth, the Forum-Arena orator, pleased the audience with an excellent oration. “The New China." Myron Williams then completed the program by giving an oration. "The Freedom of the Press.” The contest was over and the judges handed in their decisions. Several minutes passed before the decisions were arranged and read. This time was used for the giving of yells and cheers. The manner in which these cheers were given indicated that both societies were confident of victory. Suddenly the yelling and cheering ceased and death-like silence reigned. On the stage, ready to announce the decision of the judges, stood Professor Hippensteel. The first point went to the camp of the enemy and great was the enthusiasm with which it was received. The second and third came our way and great was the joy that they brought with them. The fourth and fifth went to our rivals and us respectively. Mr. Hippensteel paused. The tension was high. Thus far the Forum-Arena had gained three points while two had been credited to the Athenaeum-Ohiyesa. The two points of the debate would decide the contest. Mr. Hippensteel then said. "The debate goes to the Forum-Arena.” Cheers and yells filled the room—confusion reigned—the most dignified cheered with a frenzy of madness. The Forum-Arena had won. The literary honors of the year were hers.
Defeated but undaunted, the Athenaeum-Ohivesians rallied and gave their cheers. They had lost the contest, but they had put up a splendid battle and proved a worthy and dangerous opponent to the victorious Forum-Arena.2hf 3rie nf 1912Ebr Jrta of 1912Sl?r JriB of 1912

THE PASSING OF MILITARISM
BY HARRY YOUWG
THE greatest problem which has confronted every age is that of militarism. War has been the life of the Spartan, the glory of the Roman, the business and the delight of the French, and the progressive watchword of the English. It was a proud moment for the conquering Roman soldier when lie returned to his native city. Happy faces greeted him lustily. He partook of the festivities and marched in the gorgeous processions. He saw the decorations, the many-colored banners, the train of booty, and the steel men glittering in the sunlight, lie felt his keen-edged sword at his side. He heard the heavy measured tread of his beloved comrades as they marched in perfect columns. He looked about him and saw the stately walls of Rome; his pride, his comfort, his security. He felt the pulse-beat of this mighty empire. His breast filled with pride that he was a Roman. The thought kept him erect, controlled his life, made him a more enthusiastic, a stronger, better man. And, as these mighty men of steel pass on to the capitol. an onlooker truly says, “The power of Rome can never be extinct.” This spirit of glorious warfare has permeated every people from that day to this. Every nation has its large battleships, its brilliant uniforms. its blare of trumpets and its magnificent military displays. Surely all of this is very beautiful.
But let us look beyond the pomp and show of this martial array. Let us call to mind the contempt for life shown by the Russians and the Japanese in their late war. The scenes enacted at Port Arthur will remain fixed in our memories forever. The Japanese stormed the fortress in countless charges. The Russians hurled shot and bomb-shell into their ranks, slaughtering them by the thousands. So fierce was the$l?f 3ria of 1912
onslaught of the Japanese that they trampled their own soldiers into the trenches that others might continue their mad rush to scale the walls. They reached the battlements, undermined them and blew them to pieces. The place was a pitiable scene of suffering and carnage. Accompanying all this terror was the roar and the boom of the cannonade. The ground trembied and the firmament re-echoed the earthly thunder. Inside the fort, havoc and confusion reigned: screeching shells flew in every direction, some burst in the air; others tore the fortifications to pieces. Men were hurled among the tottering parapets. All was chaos. Death and horror reigned everywhere.
The fighting was not only upon the land, but upon the sea. The small torpedo boats of the Japanese, under cover of the darkness and the fog. stole noiselessly into the harbor at Port Arthur. They launched torpedoes at the Russian nien-of-war quietly riding at anchor. Amid the terrific explosions that followed they fled to cover while hundreds of brave soldier lads were left to perish in a mass of tangled wreckage and in the boiling waves. The practices resorted to in this war were the most vigorous, virulent and vicious known to modern ingenuity. The end of this struggle came at last. The Russians, with nearly all their garrison annihilated, the remainder almost starved, half their battleships in the bottom of the Yellow Sea. were forced to surrender. The country about the fortification was devastated. Where once men dwelt in a peaceful city, the camp-fire of a hostile force flamed amid its ruin. Where once beautiful farms flourished, now could be seen the barren sweep of the sword.
This scene is only one of many in history. Palatial Rome fell under the scourge of war. Men suffered and died at the battles of Hastings and Waterloo. The United States saw the same results in the bloodshed and devastations of her South in the Civil War.
But not less appalling than the horrors of war is the degeneracy of the race which follows in its wake. The warrior from the time out of memory has been the man most admired among men. His physique must be strong, his mind must be keen, his courage must be dauntless. Men like these are foremost in the ranks. The bravest and noblest are the first to fall. The best blood of the nation is spilt upon the battlefield and little is left to course the veins of posterity. Inane, unjust, inhuman and unchristian must be stamped these evil modes of militarism.
The ruining of property and the slaughtering of men are not the only results of war. Each year the ten largest powers of the world expend $i.ijy.ooo.ooo upon their armies and $528,000,000 upon their navies. The total annual military expenditures of all nations is over $2,250,000,000. In addition to the annual expense, every nation has her war debt: the United States over one billion. Germany over two billion, the United Kingdom over three billion. Russia over four billion, and France over five billion. “This gives us some idea of the enormous capital taken from productive industry and consumed in death and destruction. Yet, this is not all. This is supplemented annually by many other billions to maintain large armies and navies of men taken from industry, who are organized, trained and held in readiness for the day when they will be hurled against each other, to duplicate the destruction of the past and pile up new and heavier burdens upon the thrift and industry of the world.” The poor are driven to pauperism. That hateful spirit which exists among men is encouraged and conscience is sccrcd. Commerce is hindered. Scores of people leave their home lands and emigrate to foreign countries that they may escape military servitude. Such are the returns from our expenditures upon war.
We ask. then, what is the substitute for all of this idle destruction? The only substitute yet conceived of is that of a Universal Court of Arbitration. The international court at The Hague has already settled one hundred fifty controversies satisfactorily to the powers concerned. The world has never seen such a time of peace. We have passed from the stage when peace was occasional to the time when war is occasional. But. while this is an age of peace, the nations are suspicious of one another. They are afraid that their rights will be encroached upon if they do not have arms to defend them. Hence they are hurrying to devise the greatest engines of destruction. Gatling guns are being placed on every post and port-hole. The sea !s being undermined with bombs. Airships are being built to pour their rain of bullets and fire upon the men and forts beneath. The question arises, what are these preparations for? Certainly, not for the preservation of peace. Where are these ideas of
9iEfir 3rie of 1912
warfare to lead us? Only the imagination can conjecture. As long as the suspicion exists, as long as the nations spend millions and millions of dollars upon their battlements, so long shall we hear and expect to hear rumors of war. The stipulation of the treaties which have been signed by the powers during the past one hundred years for the promotion of peaceful relations have not been violated. This gives us the hope that in succeeding generations every nation will settle its controversies in a Universal Court and every nation will abide by its decisions. Would that The Hague Tribunal had at its disposal the only fleet ami army in the world to force fighting nations to settle their controversies peaceabl I Arbitration is the only true solution of these contentions. Every motive of hatred must be broken asunder; the spirit of the logical bayonet and the eloquent shield must be quelled: we must set at liberty those that are crushed, and instill righteousness, quiet and confidence in the hearts of men. Over this wide world there is not a Christian man or woman who does not despise war. Then let us do our part to avoid it. I.et us not appeal to arms, but to intelligence. Let us talk peace, hope for peace, pray for peace, and we shall have peace. Let the masses of the coming generations be instructed as to the cruelty, barbarity and useless waste of war. so that the spirit of love and confidence may grow stronger and stronger. But this reform will never come if the nations do not submit to the possibilities of peace. When a firm .confidence that the world’s court of arbitration will issue absolute and impartial justice to all becomes established, we shall hope to see England, Germany, France, our own and every other country lay aside their armament. Then fighting will be a shameful disgrace. Every government will be more devoted to the people. Military men will lie engaged in peaceful pursuits. Schools will be erected in the place of armories. The battleships will be freighted with friendly cargoes. The money that was used to adorn the soldiers will be expended upon paupers.- The glory, fame and honor which was bestowed upon the warriors of the past will be dedicated to the champions of peace. Who lifts his hand against his brother, upon his forehead will be stamped the curse of Cain.
The dawning of Universal Peace will be the greatest day in history. And, in the evening of that day. when the sun sets low on the horizon and sheds its soft glow upon the battleships in the harbors and the armies on the hills, they will hear the last sad farewell of their soldier boys to their ships, camps and comrades. And as the last, lingering rays of sunlight fade into night, so shall the battleships fade into oblivion. As the night deepens into dark and quiet, the cry of passing militarism grows fainter and fainter and they will hear the voice of Christ say. "Peace.”

TIIE STATE ORATORICAL CONTEST
THE so-ca!lcd State Oratorical Contest is more than a contest in oratory. It is a meeting in friendly rivalry of representatives from all of the Normal Schools of the state. Although the chief feature of the meeting is the oratorical contest, there are other important features. Since this contest is to be held in Stevens Point next year, it is well that we look at it from its broader view-point. Ill the first place, there is need of very careful preparation to entertain well such a large number of visitors. Every one of the eight schools sends a delegation of some sort. At Plattevillc these delegations ranged from three to fifty-five. Oshkosh had thirty-five representatives. La Crosse forty, and Whitewater fifty-five. This gives us sonic idea of the crowd we may plan on entertaining next March. As Stevens Point is more centrally located than Plattevillc. we may reasonably expect still larger delegations.
A very interesting program was given Friday morning. After a number of excellent selections by the Platteville Band, the students gave a farcical meeting of the Board of Regents. At this meeting the Presidents of the Normal Schools presented their needs. The Stevens Point president created the first real interest by giving the regents an invitation to dine in the Domestic Science department. A strong appeal was made by the executive from Oshkosh for more wings and funds to enlarge the already famous lemon groves of Oshkosh.
The afternoon was given over to the mass meeting and basketball games.
At nine p. m., Mr. R. B. Woodworth, president of the state league, called the audience to order and the contest began. It is unnecessary to speak, either of the enthusiasm which preceded the contest or of the pandemonium which follewcd it. You can easily imagine the intensity of the audience as Mr. Woodworth announced the following decision: Eighth place. River Falls; seventh place, Oshkosh: sixth place, Superior; fifth place. Whitewater: fourth place, Platteville; third place, Stevens Point; second place, Milwaukee; first place. La Crosse.
Most readers of the Iris know that Stevens Point was represented by Harry Young, with an oration entitled "The Passing of Militarism.” The card which he sent home immediately after the contest sizes up the situation: "Dear Folks: I was in the race for first but landed third.” All who heard him will agree that he was in the race for first and that the race was a close one.
It is not too early for Stevens Point to begin thinking upon the best entertainment for the large delegations which are sure to attend this contest next year, nor too early for our orators to begin work on the winning oration.

THE Normal Orchestra of 1911-1912 made its first public appearance on the Christmas Program given the Thursday before the Christmas vacation.
About the middle of the third quarter the Orchestra entertained the school several times during chorus periods (anything to escape chorus). The students were so charmed by the excellent music, that the Orchestra was prevailed upon to give a dancing party on February 9, 1912. The dance was a grand success, and every one went home hoping that another would soon be given.
Another opportunity of hearing their inspiring music was given on the evening of the Preliminary Oratorical Contest.
Being urged to appear in public so many times, they were obliged to procure new and suitable music. In order to fulfill this requirement and to respond to the many urgent requests of their fellow-students, they gave a dance April 20, to which friends not attending Normal were invited. This was the first time that invitations were issued fo$ any activity in the Gymnasium, and it was so successful financially and socially that we are in hopes of them “doing the same thing over.”
They proved their charitability in entertaining the public for the Farce and the “Vaudeville” performance at the Senior Fair.
They also accompanied the Treble Clef Club at the Minstrel Show, April 26.
The school lias certainly enjoyed having this organization in its midst, and regret that the time has come when they must lose some of its faithful members.

DOMESTIC SCIENCE AND AKT
NEVER before in the history of our Normal School has so much been accomplished in Domestic Science and Art work as during the year of 1912. Our school has not been striving selfishly in this respect, but has been putting forth her greatest efforts to be of service along these lines in an indirect way to ar least half of the homes in the city. Her efforts have not been in vain. The following scheme has made that achievement possible. Heretofore the household arts had not been introduced into the grades of the city schools. The Normal School seized upon this rich opportunity, and through the courtesy of the City Board of Education was permitted to introduce the work into the sixth, seventh and eighth grades, it being conducted by the Normal School students under the careful supervision of the instructors in these subjects. Although both students and critic teachers were frequently obliged to take long walks through blinding snowstorms or pouring rains in order to reach their respective places of duty, nevertheless the pleasant smile which they usually wore upon these trips, and their cheery salutations told the joy and satisfaction that they derived from this noble work which they were accomplishing far exceeded that which remaining in a cheerful, cosy room might have afforded.
Not only has our school made herself felt throughout the city in this regard, but her work has radiated even into rhe rural districts, much to the delight of the children of these schools, the work being conducted in much the same manner as in the city schools. Another clever plan was devised for extending this work into the homes of this county, in the form of a Farmers’ and Home Makers’ Conference which proved to be one of the most novel as well as interesting and instructive events of the school year. This was conducted by the Domestic Science and Art teachers of the Normal School, with the assistance of the Domestic Science girls. Practical talks and demonstrations were given by the men of the faculty, while the Domestic Science and Art work was in charge of the instructors in their respective lines, helpful and interesting demonstrations being given hv each.
The following program gives a clearer idea as to the aim of this Conference:
9:30 Music ................................................. Normal Orchestra
9:40 Introductory Address .............................President John F. Sims
10:00 (a) Importance in Selecting and Testing Seeds.........Prof. A. J. Herrick
(b) Preparation. Demonstration, and Serving of Luncheon
Miss Flora Sti’di ky
10:45 The Value of Birds to the Farmer............................G. E. Culver
1 .30 Music ................................................Treble Clef Club
1:40 (a) Exercise in the making of a plain dress in the stages of taking measure, drafting, cutting and finishing, with demonstration Miss Katherine Hitchcock
(b) The Farm Yard as a Source of Profit.................Professor Olson
(c) Simple Appliances on the Farm.....................Professor Bowman
This is but one of many activities of this nature that the school wishes to carry out. The work in the Normal School proper was much the same as before, though with some variations. In the work in serving, the group of girls keeping house for the day has been increased from three to five, each girl acting in some of the following capacities: laundress, housekeeper, cook, waitress, and hostess. This arrangement has made it possible for each member of the class to have acted in at least two of the positions named. Another phase of the work in Cookery which has proved exceedingly helpful to the students is the experimental work in determining the food principles in different articles of diet and effects of temperature and chemicals upon the same.
As the Holidays drew near, upon stepping into the Domestic Science department, one might have imagined himself in a first-class confectionery store, so great was the display of delicious and artistic-looking candies. Many of the girls who had never before attempted the making of fancy confectionery astonished themselves and those about them by their excellent results.
Our course in Organic Chemistry, though short, has been so carefully planned that all of the principal problems of the kitchen are involved Much stress has been placed upon tests for the purity of the common articles of food.3rta of 1912
The course in Bacteriology has proved an exceedingly strong one and an excellent foundation for the study of many subjects following it. Owing to the systematic and logical arrangement of this work, a surprising amount was accomplished during the short time allotted to it. The work in the testing of water for certain bacilli, and the prevention and treatment of the most common infectious and contagious diseases was especially beneficial. The importance of bacteria as friends and enemies to the housewife were considered.
An unique and profitable experiment was performed in the Dietetics class this year.
The students of the class prepared for themselves a meal in the Domestic Science kitchen, weighed the amount of each article consumed, and calculated the fuel value or energy in calories which it furnished them.
This year, Millinery, which the girls have found to be exceedingly fascinating work, has been added to the course. Each student was obliged to make at least three hats. So well had they mastered the art before attempting the last one. that not even an expert could have detected the fact of its being a domestic product.
The sewing work in both the Senior and Junior Classes has been excellent as to design, fitting and neatness. Many of the Senior girls have succeeded in making a graduation dress which they are proud to wear. The work in fitting has proved valuable not only in itself, but in familiarizing the students with the use of a simple system of drafting.
The special course in Drawing has been well adapted to the needs of the housekeeper. Much work has been given to the planning of color schemes, and in making of designs and utensils for household decoration.
In the basement, and adjoining the general kitchen, is a little room for which the Domestic Science girls have a greater feeling of pride than for any other room in the building. This room at the beginning of the year was equipped in an ideal manner as a cooking laboratory for he accomodation of twenty pupils. Here most of the cooking classes in the grades of the city schools arc conducted. It is seldom that one finds in any place a room showing the good judgment and careful foresight in plan and equipment as does this one. It seems an excellent model for teachers who are to introduce the course into any school.
In order that the opportunity of completing a course of this nature, might be placed within the reach of greater numbers, a two-year course is to be offered, containing about the same amount of technical work as the present three-year course, but less of the academic work.
A new three-year course has been established that will give students the opportunity of specializing either in Domestic Science or Domestic Art. This course also contains additional work in cultural subjects which will enable the teacher to work to better advantage in the larger high schools, as well as enabling her to teach successfully one or two academic subjects in addition to the Domestic Science work in the smaller high schools.
But of all the courses heretofore established, the most practical is the Home Makers’ Course, which is designed for students who desire only the training which will enable them to become ideal home-makers. There will be one and two year courses of this nature. The one year course will give an adequate scientific knowledge for proper housekeeping, while the two year course will give greater knowledge and skill along these lines. For the purpose of making this course as practicable as possible a modern cottage will be erected on the Xormal Campus. This cottage will contain cellar, kitchen, dining-room, two bed-rooms, and a laundry, all neatly and attractively furnished. Here the girls are to keep house in groups of four for periods of from page
three to five weeks. During this time they shall be required to perform to the best of their ability every household task. This work is to be under the supervision of the new Domestic Science teacher. These new courses will go into effect with the opening of the fall term.
The entire first floor of the new wing, which will be completed within a year, will be devoted to the Domestic Science and Art work and will contain laboratories, sewing rooms, laundry, kitchens, dining rooms, and emergency room.
The Stevens Point Xormal School for some years has been noted throughout the state for its work in these lines, and evidently the time is fast approaching when its Domestic Science and Domestic Art Courses will be recognized by many states is ideal ones for prospective teachers of this work in the elementary and secondary schools.

THE vacancy in the Manual Training Department caused by the resignation of Mr. L. A. Flagler was tilled this year by Clyde A. Bowman of Menomonie, who during the year has shown himself to be an exceedingly strong teacher, and has acquired the reputation of “The man who says little but does much." The manual training department has. with the equipment added during the past year, been placed on an efficient basis. Substantial additions have been made to both the machinery and to the tool equipments. A new power saw was added to the jointer and inortiser already in the shop, and a five-horsepower motor installed for pow'er. The grindstone, mortiser, saw and jointer are grouped in one corner of the shop, making the facilities for working up stock complete and convenient. The tool equipment has had clamps, hand screws and smaller tools added. The benches were rearranged. making them very convenient to the general tool panels and making room for the machinery. The improved conditions have resulted in an increased quantity of the larger furniture pieces, a number of tables, small writing desks, magazine and book shelves and low stools having been constructed.
Students from the normal department taking manual training make a series of the more difficult grade models, choose one of four small typical furniture projects and then make the optional piece This year, with the advantage of bettered facilities, a good variety was secured in the optional pieces. It is planned to add in the near future a series of small practical problems including such ones as putting up a small shelf, repairing a door-catch and moving a hinge. Each one in itself will not be difficult, but will be of very practical value to the student in everyday life.
The mechanical drawing has been given considerable attention during the year and the course established. A series of plates are made during the first quarter, including exercise plates, working drawings and developments which give training i.i the use of instruments and teach the general makeup of a working drawing. Simple machine parts and intersections are covered in the second quarter, with optional work in the third. Two lines of work are offered in the third quarter. Drawings for advanced cabinet-making projects and a simple problem in architectural drawing are offered in one series, while machine sketching, drawing and tracing are offered in the other. The work is related to the shop work, the working drawings made in the first quarter being of projects made at the same time in the shop, and the third quarter cabinet-making drawings are kept and the problems put on file for the use of the advanced students in woodwork.
It is planned to provide more ample room for both the mechanical drawing and shop wrok when the new' addition is completed. The equipment at present available for the mechanical drawing in the shape of tools and instruments is first-class in every way. The tables, while serviceable, will be bettered in the near future, and the mechanical drawing put on the same basis in the way of equipment as the shop work. Space will be provided for new individual benches. While the present shop is very well lighted, arranged and finished, the present equipment could be used even more efficiently if more space were available.(Eljr 3rio of 1 112Jiff 3rin of 1912
THE Art work this year has been extraordinarily good in every particular. Never before has so high a standard of excellency in every phase of this work been reached, which fact is due to the never-tiring patience and tact of the instructor, and to the good will and hearty co-operation of the students.
During the first quarter much work was done in the making of different colors and their applications. Design work was done, practical problems being involved such as the making of pillow-tops and table-runners.
A great deal of time during the second quarter was devoted to designing and stenciling, the work in the former resulting in a number of attractive folders and book covers. Much stress was also placed upon picture study and school-room decoration.
The work for the third quarter consisted principally of work in leather, such as the making of card cases and bags, advanced work in crayon and charcoal, and the drawing of pottery.
page The class in construction have made many attractive and useful articles, such as
the woven school-bags and rugs. Much time was also given to the useful arts of crocheting and knitting. An exceedingly practical problem was the construction of 9 the furniture for a doll’s house.
a At the meeting of the Northwestern Teachers’ Association at Eau Claire, October
v 20. 1911, a very interesting and instructive talk on “Drawing in the Graded Schools’’
was given bv our art instructor, Eleanor C. Flanagan.
At the meeting of the Home Economics and Applied Arts Association, held at Appleton in April, the art exhibit from this school was in every respect one of the strongest.Sbr Srio of 1912
A LITTLE girl lived with her mamma in the woods. She had a little red hood here. Here is a cake I baked for Sunday. Put on your red hood and little red cape. Take this basket with the cake for Sunday and some butter to your grandma, and don't stop to talk to anybody you don’t know, ’cause it might get dark and the little girl might be afraid.
Little Red Riding Hood said, “All right, mother.” So she went.
Pretty soon, when she was walking in the woods, a big wolf came up to her. He wasn’t a cross old wolf, so he said. "What’s your name?"
Little Red Riding Hood wasn't afraid of him. Then the wolf said. “Where arc you going. Little Red Riding Hood?” ’cause he wanted to know.
“I am. going to my grandma with this cake for Sunday and some butter in my basket.”
And the wolf said. “Where does your grandma live?"
“In a little red house at the edge of the wood.”
“I’ll run ahead and tell her that you're coming.”
So he ran as fast as he could till he came to the grandma’s house. He didn’t rap on the door or ring the bell but walked right in.
Xow the grandma went to town to sell some milk and cheese and she didn’t even have time to hang up her night-gown or make her bed.
So the wolf hurried as fast as he could and put on the grandma’s night-gown and put on her night-cap and jumped into bed and covered himself up. Pretty soon Little Red Riding Hood came to the door.
When she rapped at the door the old wolf said. “Take off your cape and put down your basket and sit by me."
So she did. Little Red Riding Hood said. “Grandma, what a loud voice you have.” “I have an awful cold.”
“What hairy arms you have.”
“The better to hug you, my dear.”
“What a big tongue you have.”
“The better to talk to you. my dear.”
“What big teeth you have."
“The better to eat you up.”
Just then he jumped out of bed and was going to eat up poor Little Red Red Riding Hood.
My. but she was scared! She put her head down and cried. “Mama! Mama!”
The wolf got hold of her cap and it burned his mouth. He ran round the room. It felt like coals in his mouth.
Then the grandma came home. She had an empty sack and put it across the door. “I’ll teach you.” The wolf put his head through and then the grandma threw him in the well.
The grandma said. “Poor Little Red Riding Hood,” and gave her a cup of milk and a big piece of cake.
Then she put on her hood and cape and led her home.Sljr iris nf 1912Qtyr 3rie of 1912

AFTER the Normal had opened for the fall term and the students had settled down to their daily routine of work, football became the topic of discussion among the boys. Prospects for a strong football team were none too bright. The forty-five boys that had enrolled were almost invisible among the large number of students of the fair sex, and although we were glad to have so many girls with us, we could not help but wish that at least a hundred of them were boys, for boys are the main requisition of a football team. Some of the more enthusiastic athletes visited all the boys for the purpose of signing them up for the football squad. Twenty-five of the boys signed the important document , in which they promised to obey the coach and come out tor practice regularly. Later on, a meeting was called and the football situation was discussed by the students as well as several members of the faculty. The squad turned out with full force to attend the meeting, and although the enthusiasm displayed was very encouraging, the size of the boys and their lack of experience in the game, as well as the fact that we had no regular coach, made it a self-evident fact that we could not expect to turn out a winning team. After a lengthy discussion, it was decided that S. P. X. would not be represented on the gridiron in the fall of 1911. It was a thing to regret that such High School and Normal stars as Oden, Birdsall, Woodworth. Fulton. Schanen, and Carpenter were forced to keep their football courage and talent lying dormant within them.
AFTER football had been abandoned, the boys immediately set about to expending their spare time and energy in basketball practice. The prospects for a winning team were bright. Woodworth. Birdsall, and Oden, the stars of the 1910-T1 team were back in the game, while among the new men were Fulton, Garthwaite, Schanen. Ross, and Welch. But in basketball as well as football, the success of the team depends largely upon the work of the coach. Professor Smith was asked to coach the team, but owing to his daily class room work as well as the coaching of the class play and various farces, he could do very little work with the squad. The boys, however, did the best they could under the circumstances, and looked forth to the opening of the season with a spirit of confidence and success.
The first game of the season was played in the local gymnasium with the Despensio Club of Waupaca. In this game the Normal team showed plainly what kind of material it had by defeating Waupaca with a score of 67-13. Owing to the wide difference in the score, the game was not very interesting.
We looked forward to the second game as the "big game" of the season. Oshkosh, our oldest and bitterest rival, was to contend with us in this battle of physical science. The spirit of loyalty among the S. P. N. students was at its highest point, and during the week preceding the game, new songs and yells were composed and practiced.
The game was played in the local gymnasium on the evening of December 16. When the teams came out on the floor it was apparent that the battle was going to be close and exciting, for among the Oshkosh squad were several of the players who. the year before, had won for their school the tate championship. The S. P. X. boys were ready for a vigorous battle, for they realized, that to a large extent, their work in this game would decide their success for the season.
True to predictions, the game was close. S. P. X. took the lead and for a while the teams scored alternately. We were in the lead at all times during the first half, and when the whistle sounded, the score was 8-14 in our favor. Joy reigned among the students, for victory seemed certain. After the beginning of the second half our joy was checked, for fate seemed to turn against us. Oshkosh got the lead, and although it was only marginal, it was not overtaken by our boys. During the last few minutes, prospects brightened, and the Pointers were again finding the basket, but as soon as they scored a basket the Oshkosh boys would do the same, thereby keeping the lead. The game resulted in a victory for the visitors with a score of 20-26.OV Jri« of 1912
The third game of the season was played in the local gymnasium with the M. W. A. of Plainfield. This game, on account of the close score and hot discussions, proved to be very interesting.
On January 12. the S. P. N. team under the guardianship of Professor Bowman, left for a two-day tour to play the Oshkosh and Milwaukee Normal teams. The first game was played at the “Sawdust City." Oshkosh had been playing splendid ball all season against the various secondary school of the state, and our boys realized that they would have to face a mighty foe. They went into the game with true S. P. N. spirit, and were bound to make Oshkosh pay for the victory. The game was lost by a score of 15-31. The boys did not mind the defeat, for they knew that they had played good ball. Mental pain was insignificant compared with the physical pain that they suffered as a result of injuries received in the game.
On the next evening, in the Milwaukee Normal gymnasium, the bruised S. P. NT. players put up an excellent battle against Coach AngeM's well-trained athletes. The game was close throughout and had it not been for the fact that our boys suffered injuries the night before, the result would have been different. Considering, however, that the Milwaukee team later in the season won the state championship, we cannot help but feel proud that our boys held them down to a score of 19-25.
'I'he two games scheduled with the Superior Normal team were played in the local gymnasium on the evenings of January 19 and 20.
The first game was attended by a fair-sized audience of Normalites and basketball fans from the city. The game, although an easy victory for our boys, was very interesting. Both teams did good work. Fulton of our team starring with his sensational field throws. When the final whistle sounded the score was 24-14 in our favor.
On the evening of the second game, the S. P. N. heroes marched out on the floor confident of another victory. The Superior boys, having gotten accustomed to the floor, felt sure that they would put up a better battle than they had the evening before. After the game had started, our players realized that they would have to work, and work hard, if they wanted to win the game. Woodworth, our star forward, was out of the game on account of injuries received at Oshkosh. To the surprise of the audience, the Superior boys took the lead and ran up a high score in the first half. In the second half our boys came back stronger than ever and made Superior fight in order to keep the lead. During the last few minutes the score was almost even and for a while it looked as if the lead that Superior had obtained in the first half was going to be surpassed by our boys, but right in the thickest of the excitement the whistle sounded and the game was a victory for the visitors with a score of 31-33.
The Superior games were the last played by our team, and although it was early in the season, it was apparent that we could schedule no more. Woodworth, the star man on the team, could not be back in the game on account of injuries received at Oshkosh : Birdsall. one of the fastest players, graduated at the end of the second quarter and left the ranks of the Normalites; and the financial conditions of the team were not any too promising. Although we did not win the majority of the big games, we cannot help saying that basketball was a success.
TENNYSON says: “In spring a young man’s fancies lightly turn to thoughts of love." True as this may be. the appropriate saying for our American times is. “In spring a young man's fancies strongly turn to thoughts of baseball." Such at least was the trend of thought among the S. P. N. boys.
When the lengthening days, accompanied by the hot sun. were again with us and the snow on the Normal campus had been transformed into water, and all nature seemed to have a new awakening, our thoughts of winter activities melted away and yielded to a remarkable change. Not only was there a change of thought, but the body inhabited with the spring fever germs, demanded a change of recreation, and although of common occurrence, it was difficult to explain why the mind as well as the desire of the body centered upon baseball.
Every boy in school was enthusiastic about baseball and all looked forth to the opening of the season with great interest. We all felt that baseball would be the great athletic feature of the year, and adequate were our reasons for thinking so, for
1(Tljr 3rla af 1912
among our number were many amateur stars in the game. Not only did we have material for a good team, but we had in Professor Pattcrson a coach capable of rounding the team into the best of form. The only thing that caused us worry was the financial condition of the Athletic Association. The necessary funds needed to purchase new uniforms were not on hand. The baseball boys soon overcame the difficulty, however, by paying for their uniforms themselves.
As soon as the weather was favorable and the grounds were in condition, the Normal boys, garbed in their attractive gray and blue, could daily be seen practicing, that they might become more perfect masters of the art.
The first game of the season was played at the local fair grounds on April 27, against the Stevens Point High School team, and proved to be very interesting. The High School lads, "holding a weak supposal of our worth." and being supplied with their usual over-abundance of egotism, prognosticated a whirlwind victory for themselves. The Normalites, believing in the time-worn adage. "He who laughs last laughs best,” marched out into the field with inward confidence of victory.
The game began, and due to an error on the part of our boys, two High School boys circled the bases. But, lo! they had reached their zenith, and not again during the remainder of the game was the score marker obliged to credit them with a mark. On the other hand, the Normal boys were hitting the sphere and circling the bases to the tune of "Dixie.” When the game was over, the victory was ours by a score of 2-12. Needless to say. the "Rah Rah S. P. N" rang and echoed through the pleasant spring air. Our rivals, sick with mental pain and with feathers trailing in the dust, slowly and sadly left the grounds.
On the following Saturday, at the same place, the S. P. N. defeated a team of picked players from the city with a score of 3-12.
At the present time. Manager Carpenter and Coach Patterson are arranging a schedule for the remainder of the season. Games with various Normals and High Schools will be scheduled.
Although early in the season and with two victories to our credit, and all prospects promising, we cannot help but say that we are sure that S. P. N. will be among the top nOtchers in the secondary school baseball world.
LOOKING over the athletic events of the year, we find that although fairly satisfactory, they could have been much better. Financial conditions and the lack of coaches were the main stumbling blocks. Thanks to the Board of Regents, the latter will bother us no longer in the future. Money has been appropriated for the purpose of engaging an efficient instructor in athletics. Let us hope that with the aid of the new coach, Stevens Point Normal will turn out champion teams in the coming years, as she did in years past. To overcome the financial conditions, is the work of the students. If games arc well patronized this difficulty will vanish.
Let all S. P. N. students be loyal to the athletic interests of their school and use the following lines as their motto:
Let us then be up and doing.
And come out for every game. If we’re winning, if we're losing. Keep on rooting just the same.ul?r 3rtn of 1912

SAD STATE OF A SENIOR
Down in the office where carpets are worn by the feet of the many.
Came there one morning a youth quite dejected with air so despondent.
Spin, saw him throw himself down with a groan and some very deep sighing. “What is the matter, Schulz Why are you worried? Does Pointer work trouble?” “That dope is easy ’ said Henry, "but girls are the problem. I hate them.
Last year I had my sweet Alma and took her to everything going.
Carpenter’s here now and takes her around to the parties and programs.
I care not, he can just have his fine Alma and I'll find another!"
Saying these wild words he rushed from the office and left Spin, alone there.
Out in the hall he did meet such a short maiden, who spoke this:
“Sims is the man I must see—who is boss of this outfit. Are you he?”
Henry did-speak thus: “President Sims is away, but he told me I am to act in his place while he’s absent from here. May I aid you?”
“Take you my hand and please show me the ways of this Normal,” said Lois, “Steadies for me should be handsome and dressy like you. So it’s settled.” Quarters passed by until Christmas did come, and then Ambrose, the villain, Came too, Alas! for poor Henry! “You can go now," said Lois.
Schulz did gasp—yea, ’tis true, this great Senior did gasp, ‘i’ll take Oleson,
She is the steady for me,” but mistaken was he, for Lillian
Eyed him quite coolly and said, “My dear Henry, for me you’re too little.”
"I have discovered that Normalites do not suit me now ' quoth Henry. “Trowbridge is stately and haughty. I like a girl who is not flirty.”
Margaret treated him kind for a while and then said. “I cannot stand Such pedagogical talk. 1 like a high school boy better than you.”
Down in the office where carpets are worn by the feet of the many.
Came there one morning a youth quite dejected with air so despondent,
Sims saw him throw himself down with a groan and some very deep sighing. “What is the matter, Schulz? Why are you worried? Does Iris work trouble?” “That dope is easy." said Henry, "but girls are the problem. 1 hate them!
So I’m resolved now to quit them, to keep all my love and be single".3l|f 3rie of 1912
Chr JrlB of 1912
One day a Manitowocer, thinking of his single state.
Felt the heartache of a lonely man to find a fitting mate;
And while he ate his supper at the Bruce Hotel Cafe.
He hoped to find himself a wife to cheer his lonely way;
When suddenly he paused and gravely held aloft an egg,
For there in penciled letters was the magic name of Peg.
You know those hotel eggs of ours, some pink, some green, some blue.
A nickel per, assorted tints, assorted flavors, too;
Well, J. C. W. took this egg and held it to the light
And there were more faint pencilings that sorely tried his sight.
At last he made it out, and then the legend ran like this—
Oh, Xormalitc, please write to Peg Plumhollow, Squashville, Wis.
She flitted sweetly thru his dreams, she haunted him by day.
She smiled thru clouds of darkness and cheer his lonely way.
At last he yielded to the spell, his course of love he set—
To Squashville, his objective point; his object Margaret,
With each and every mile of track his longing grew and grew;
He practiced all his pretty words and they were very few.
At last one frosty evening, with the cold chill down his spine.
He found himself before her house, the threshold of the shrine.
Oh, she was fair as any flower, and huskily he spoke:
“I’m all the way from S. P. X.; I’m pretty nearly broke,
I’m looking for a lassie, one whose Christian name is Peg,
Who sought a Stevens Pointer—and wrote it on an egg.”
The lassie gazed at him a-pace, her cheeks grew rosy red,
She gazed at him with tear-bright eyes, then tenderly she said: “Yes, lonely Stevens Point Xormalitc, ’tis irvte my name is Peg; 'Tis also true I longed for you and wrote it on an egg.
I’ve waited long, I hoped and feared, you should have come before; I've been a wedded woman now for eighteen months or more.
I’m sorry, since you’ve come so far, you aren’t the one in millions; But won’t you take a step inside, I’ll show you Myron Williams.Chr Jrt0 uf 1912

Scene—The Tribunal of Historicus.
Historicus—What ho! Prostracius, take the stand. Expound you Sir those three score page and ten from Dr. Mace.
Prostracius—Alas! my lord 1 do not know.
Historic us—What? Thou cans’t? W hat churl has taughtest thou to say “I do not know”?
Historicus—Me? Thou naughty knave, expound.
Prostracius—I asked of you one day “Dost I get through this persecution?” upon which thou did answer me back. ”1 do not know.”
Historicus—Then I tell thee differently now. XO! Thou wilt not get through. Prostracius—Aye. but I answered thee aright.
Historicus—Can thou tell me then four score page from James and Sanford? Prostracius—Xo.
Historicus—What knave has taughtest thou to say “no"?
Prostracius—I do not know.
Prostracius—When 1 did ask "Do I get through?" thou thyself didst say "Xo.” Historicus—Enough! Fair Salomicus. I prithee rise.
Hast thou the fruits of wisdom dear To quote from Mace a chapter here?
My taper burneth past the midnight hour,
But now, the fear of zeros makes me cower;
My thoughts flee far. Spare me. my lord. I pray.
For if chance another goose-egg, there’ll Be many things to pay.
This foolishness must cease:
The time goes on apace.
The period’s up: assignment now:
Take another hook of Mace.
(Assemblage disperses. Troiestus and Salomicus follow in the rear of the rabble.) Protestus—Soft you now, Sadicus. Resentest thou not all this? I do not mean to stir you up to any sudden flood of mutiny, but what thinkest thou of these tyrants who do oppress us all? For who would bear the whips and scorns of tines, the insolence of office and the law’s relay? Vet they that have done these deeds are honorable men. So are they all honorable men. I come not here to steal away your heart.. I am no orator, as Williams is. I am a plain, blunt man who believes in making a holler and smashing things up. What ho!—Historicus approaches with noiseless tread. We must depart,—
And after this let tyrants seat them sure.

Scene—Halls of Fame of S. P. .V.
(A reception.. Enter company, with flourish.)
Historicus—Good even, Lititurius. Why dost thou not join in these festivities in our honor?
Lititurius—Nay, I cannot, good Historicus. In sooth I know not why I am so sad. It wearies me. you say it wearies you. But how I caught it, found it, or came by it, what stuff 'tis made of I am yet to learn.
Historicus—Why not rejoice? I know that virtue to be in you. Lititurius. You block, you stone, you worse than senseless thing. Knew ye not Pompcy(dour) ?
Lititurius—I will set on and leave no ceremony out.
Historicus—What a blunt fellow is this grown to be. He had a quick mettle when he went to school. Of late, he has foregone all form of exercise. He reads much, he loves no plays, seldom he smiles and for all the world I do believe tis love that holds him. love for the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Salome.
(Enter an attendant.)
Attendant—What, Historicus—Ho! I cannot, by my stars discover where the ice-cream has begone. Tis disappeared as if the earth had opened up its ponderous marble jaws and swallowed it.
Historicus—Get me a taper in the kitchen, Clumsius. When it is lighted, come and find me here. (£xjt attendant.)
Historicus—It must be by his theft, yet for my part 1 thought him but in love. I know no personal cause to spurn at him but for the general. He would be found. How that might change his nature, there's the question. For hungriness is young ambition’s ladder whereto the climber upward turns his face, and when he has each utmost downed—he then unto the freezer turns his back.
When that same star that's westward from the pole Has made its trip, I’ll hunt some coward to his hole.
Scene—The Garden before the Temple of Learning.
Xkrvius—Sweet Sadicus, let us walk these shady avenues where 1 may tell m true love’s passion. Lady, bv yonder blessed moon. I swear to ever love thee.
Sadicus—Thou knowest the mask of night is on my face: else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek. Thou knowest I do love thee.
Nervius—But love me only, say? Of late, I have observed thee in earnest conversation with Lititurius, which did make my blood run hot with jealous rage.
Sadicus—Say not so. Nervius. Many a time and oft on the piazza hath Lititurius made me offers of love which I did thrice refuse. Is this ambition? Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.
Nervius—What ho—some one approaches. Who goes there?
Lititurius—In sooth, ’tis I if the lady it so pleases. Much frolic flourishes within the halls; Lady Salomicus, wilt thou then accompany me within? It is not fit for thee to dare the vile contagion of this dark, dank night. Dost thou not prefer my company best ?
Sadicus—Question me not so, good Lititurius. That I do love this boy 'tis true. That I did love you once ’tis true. Mv heart laments that virtue cannot live. I prithee, boy, run to the Senate house. Stay not to answer me but get thee to a nunnery. Why dost thou stay and stare? (Exit Lititurius.)
Scene—Interior of Hall of Fame of S. P .V.
(A reception. Enter Protestus, with ice-cream freezer concealed beneath his tunic.)
Protestus—To eat or not to eat. that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the stings and pang of outrageous conscience or to take courage and devour the ice-cream. To try. to eat, perchance to eat too much; avc, there is the rub. 'Twas a bright idea to hook the cream, yet brighter to conceal it in the classroom of Lititurius. If suspicion falls 'tis bound to fall elsewhere than on me. so here I will await until opportunity doth afford to hike it hence.
(Exit Protestus)vElje 3ria of 1912
Lititurius—In sooth, I must expel these gloomy thoughts from off my mind, like quills upon the fretful porcupine. To be turned down by one sweetheart but heaps fuel on the love fire of my heart. I will answer Neva’s love note this very night. By my stars, I have mislaid or lost the love note. How can I start to answer it? Perhaps I’ve lost it in the class-room. I will go thither to find it ere it falls in villainous, inquiring hands.
(Exit Lititurius and enter Historicus from behind the drapery.)
Historicus—Did I not hear strange and puzzling voices from Lititurius’ lips? Can it be he who has frisked the ice-cream so deftly and is now repairing thence to enjoy the coward spoil? Sure ’tis not unright for me to follow him. Anon I’ll shadow softly and perchance the knave discover.
Scene—Class-room of Lititurius. Enter Lititurius.
Lititurius—Ah. by my troth, here is the lost epistle even before my very door and at the base of Pompcy’s statue. I will now go hence and read it under moonlight, where I may muse and dream a love song. (Exit Lititurius.)
Historicus—'Tis strange what did become of him. A moment thence I'd swear I saw him enter here. Thin air only now prevails in the room and I am mystified. Perchance a knave is hiding here. I’ll have a look about. What ho, by Great Caesar! Here's the stuff purloined, concealed beneath this desk. I’ll haste it back before the knave returns. (Enter Lititurius.)
Lititurius—What ho! What dost thou here, Historicus, with stolen sweetmeats in thy hands?
Historicus—Stolen by you. thou knave. Lititurius.
Lititurius—No. by heaven! stolen by you.
Historicus—Avaunt, thou blasphemer, thou naughty thief—be out of my way.
Lititurius—I will take no such insult from you, knave—we will fight this even to death. (Drazes fountain pen from sheath.) Draw you weapon, vandal, or I’ll stab you through the heart ere you are aware. (They fight duel.)
Historicus—Stop. Lititurius, I am wounded unto death on the left ear.
Lititurius (shouting)—No, 'tis to death.
Clown—Whoopla! Choke off the game. ’Tis tid-le-winks for doves, thou playest at. Did I not see the whole carried out ?
Lititurius—Speak, fool! What dost thou know of this?
Clown—Only that it is a fool’s job.
Lititurius—Who is the fool? Hurry up before I stab thee through!
Clown—Sure it was Protestus that did cause this all. I did myself see him hook the joyful dope.
Lititurius—Thou dost lie and I will kill you! (Makes a lunge at dozen.)
(Enter Protestus, supported by tzio attendants.)
Protestus—Hold! I have a tale of misery to unfold. That I did hook the cream, ’tis true: in the dead vast and middle of the night when churchyards yawn, and whilst thou didst quarrel even now I did repair to eat the fruits of this dispute. Alas! and I did eat too much. Aye, there's the rub. That five gallons is too much for one man, is no longer to be doubted. With the dawning of another minute 1 will begone to that bourne from which no traveler returns. So ope not your ponderous marble jaws to sternly bespeak against me, for I am dead. (Protestus dies.)
‘‘So live, that when thy summons comes to join That innumerable caravan that moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarrv-slave at night.
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave.
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.”

ERE WE FART
STEVENS POINT Normal School is about to send out into the professional field her seventeenth graduating class. The members of this class, in accordance with the custom set bv the members of the graduating classes of the later years, beg to leave as a memorial to their Alma Mater, her alumni, and future graduates, this Iris of Nineteen Twelve.
In the preparation of this book, it has been our aim to give a fair representation of our Alma Mater, her organizations and activities, both vocational and social.
We presuppose, kind reader, you realize that in order to make an annual of this nature pleasing to all, it must contain accounts of the more humorous sides of school activities. If any of our humorous efforts bear upon you in any way, please accept them with the same spirit in which they were written, that of friendliness and not of animosity.
This being our last opportunity, we wish to extend our gratitude to all who in any way aided in the publication of this Iris. To E. T. Smith, for his patient work with the camera, and to Miss Burce, Miss Flanagan, and Professor Hippensteel, for their work in correcting manuscript, we wish to extend a special word of thanks.
Kind reader, we leave the book to your approval. Hoping that you will commend all that is good, and be tolerant with all that is not so good, we remain.
Yours very respectfuliv,

DON’T BE RULED
Don't go through life ruled by circumstances. I’ut yourself in a position to control circumstances and turn them over to your own advantage.
To do that you need the power and the conciousness of power which comes from saving money and putting it away safely. There is a two fold benefit from the practice of economy—you develop character and you accumulate capital.
You won't be ruled by CIRCUMSTANCES if you prepare yourself for emergencies and opportunities by building up a cash reserve by maintaining a savings account in this strong bank.
Ceasar said. ' 1 came. I saw. I conquered The modern conqueror says. "I work. I save. I succeed."
Have YOU adopted this motto ?
We pay three per cent on savings. You can start a savings account with One Dollar or more. You intend to save—start NOW. All business confidential.
