SMITH a man whose quiet sincerity and simple dignity hear eloquent testimony to the greatness of his heart and mind—to him We Dedicate the Gitche Gumee of 1914 3Z7 JGREETING Here I am. a little book, with a bljr eventful career. I have traveled far ami wide, I have seen ami heard inucli. all of which I have gatli-ered unto myself to bring to you. Hut give ear a moment to my history. While yet at the glowing height of my youthful vigor a great and crushing calamity befell me. from which many prophesied—alas!—that I would never recover. It was a stunning how. It crippled me. hut did not kill me. The editors tenderly put my pieces together, breathed life into my dying spirit and placed me upon my feet again, saying “CItohc onward!" 1 stumbled forward bravely, hut were it not for the aid of my stout and faithful staff. I should have fallen by the wayside. It guided my faltering footsteps, it gave strength to my weakness. At times. I confess. I have borne heavily ii|h u It. but it has not bent or wavered. As 1 hurried on in my Journey to you. other friends often stepped in to assist i»o over the rough places, for they reallzisl how greatly 1 must hasten If 1 would moot von on the 'appointed day. So. here I am—hot and breathless! If I do not show that scholarly finish with which a product of my institution should shine, remember that my life has boon busy, my path thorny. 1 have hnd little time to stop by the way to lie polished. If my attempts at humor bore you, he patient with my efforts; If my quips hurt you, do not be hitler toward me. I am the best' In-tentioued little volume in the world, if not the most tactful. Kcniemhcr I have been through lire and water for you. Take me home and keep me always. In years to come I will bring Jov to your heart when it is fired, and a smile to your ips when they are weary, by my gentle whisperings of a life that has gone by.V. E. McCASKILL. Mr.McCaskill lias been president since 1907. Before accepting the presidency he was at the head of the biology department. • I Ic has seen the Superior Normal grow to second in attendance in the state. Needless to say it was his constant work and “boosting" that put us there. 11 is genial smile and charming personality soon win the hearts of all.ELLEX CLARK. Miss Clark came to us last September to fill the place in the History Department vacated by Miss Milam. Her intense interest in her subject and the enthusiasm with which she handles it arc a source of inspiration to all her students.. G. X. PALMER. In the one year lie has been with ns Mr. Palmer has made himself a force in the school. To him we are indebted for the interest which has been awakened along: debating: and literary lines, lie has endeared himself to the student body not only through his work as head of the English Department but by the splendid school spirit he has shown in all school activities. CAROLINE BAR HOC R...... Miss Barbour's broad sympathy, her fine understanding of little children, her helpful spirit toward all are among tiie qualities that have made her very dear to us. 6DR. C. J. ROLLEESON. Dr. Rollctson's work as medical adviser since he lias been in our midst, has been of the highest quality. Me has both the beginning and advanced classes in physiology and hygiene. Actual practice in medicine makes him especially fitted for this work. KATHERINE SCHLEGEL. Miss Schlegel's a woman we all do admire For it was she who was able her class to inspire To give us a treat Of melodies sweet. On the evening before our great fire. GRACE BRIXTON. A phenomenon rarely found in Normal schools, is a class comjmsed entirely of young men. Miss Brinton's Economic Geography class is one of the "above mentioned." Aside from the distinction of having a young men's class. Miss Brinton is "there" when it comes to teaching the rising generation the fundamental principles of composition and penmanship. 7XONA McQUILKLW .Miss McQuilkin’s pleasing personality. her willingness to help along in all school alTairs have made her a general favorite. Her untiring efforts in the Oratorical Department have helped bring many honors to our Normal in the past. LUCILLE SHIELDS. Her manner is blithesome. Her work is thought fine. She calmeth the students With music divine. V. E. BRAMAN. The builder of “Braman Row." Before Mr. Braman came, the Manual i raining department was little more than a name, hut we now have one of the best in the state. Mr. Braman has worked hard to make his department a success and he deserves the interest shown by his pupils in their work. 8GEORGE E. KOEGAX. As athletic director, Mr. Koegan has put the Superior State Normal School on the map by means of the excellent teams lie has turned out during the past two years. . We shan’t forget our “Coach.” IRENE CURTIS. Under the generalship of Miss Curtis the Young Men’s Choral Club has carved a name for itself. When Miss Curtis enters a project, things move! Great hopes were held out for the successful production of a comic operetta under her direction but owing to the unfortunate loss of the Normal building, it had to be postponed until next year. HARRIET EATON. What a state of chaos would reign in the Normal if Miss Eaton were not here, ever ready to assist us all in our mad and eternal search for reference books. We shall be happy to see her at her familiar post in our splendid new library that is to be. 9BELLE BRADY. Miss Brady is the ideal of each a: ing second grade teacher. Her mai is always cheerful and serene, and atmosphere of her rooms was alv restful. ATI I ALIK DIFFOk. She has a gentle manner. Despite her auburn hair. And without her here at X’ormal, We sure would badly fare. Among the hooks you’ll find her. It is her chief delight To arrange them and exchange them From morning until night. MISS WILKI.YSOX. Miss Wilkinson has been with us o a short time, she having taken M Salter’s place in the English Dcpartmc but already she has entered into c school life with a spirit that has won t admiration. 10A. D. S. GILLETT. Merriment is in liis class, but Study, too, reigns there. And if the harmony of these t you seems very rare. Just step into his room some day and ere long you’ll understand Why his work is such a big succ ss. and his students’ think lie’s “grand." t. j. McCarthy. Mr. McCarthy came to us the beginning of the school year to fill the vacancy in the Biology Department. He has proved himself a valuable addition to Normal faculty. EDNA PARK. “Now good digestion wait on appetite, and health on both." Up in the rooms of Miss Edna Park, The girls enjoy full many a lark. The Inns would oft fain linger near. But only lasses enter here. 11A. D. WHEALDON. The students all like Mr. Whealdon. The times they displease him are seldom, Each Chemistry shark Works not for the mark. But the much-cherished comment of "Welt done." r i LUCIA SPOONER. To go into Miss Spooner’s room is like stepping into the pages of an old story-book. The very atmosphere is Roman. She has done much toward making Latin a live subject at Superior Normal by her interesting presentation of it. BESSIE CRAIG. Joyous ever as she toils Among the brushes, paints and oils. Our drawing teacher aims to make Us cherish art just for art’s sake. 12C. W. SMITH. Mr. Smith is one of the really important factors in the life of the Normal. As .chairman of the Good Order Committee lie has proved both capable and just. In his classes in the higher mathematics he brings out the practical application as much as possible, thereby creating an interest in the work not often taken by the average student in this branch. RITA CALDWELL. “She is pretty to walk with. and witty to talk with. And pleasant, too. to think on.” MAY HILL. W hen Miss Hill tells stories she wins the love of the children and the grownups. too. We hope she will stay with us so some of us can learn the gentle art of story-telling. A. M. ROYCE. Every practice teacher finds a true friend in Mr. Royce. supervisor of the Training Department. His position is a difficult one but for many years he has filled it with a tact and ability that have won the admiration of all. MARION PIERCE. Miss Pierce is physical director of women. She is an enthusiastic promoter of athletics and other school activities. I ndcr her guidance the girls find the strenuous life very attractive. JEAN KIR WAX. Miss Kirwan has a wonderful way of handling and managing the little third and fourth graders. Her rooms were always pleasantly decorated, and this, with her charming personality, made school a delight for both the children and the practice teachers. ELLEN BURKE. Miss Burke is a friend and helper of every practice teacher. AGNES KIRK. When teaching for Miss Agnes Kirk, (hir duties we never would shirk. When we're learning each rule I'or managing school She inspires us with love for our work. 3RACE GEARY. Miss Gv .ry needs no introduction as she is to all. Her work at the head of tl.e arithmetic department is a credit to the school. The students, however. especially appreciatpe her efforts as the head of the social committee. In this capacity she has brought the new students into contact with the old and with each other, greatly increasing the spirit of cordiality and fellowship. Miss Geary is preceptress of Crownhart Hall and dean of women. J. A. MERRILL. Mr. Merrill .s one of our "old timers.” He has charge of the Geology and Geography departments, being admirably fitted for the w , rk by years of study and research on the geological structure of the United States. His classes have the air of studioiu earnestness found only where the takes a great personal interest in each student. J. A. WILLIAMS. All students like Both Theory and Pscych Because Mr. Wiliams is teacher. His wonderful knowledge I le gained while in college. Has made his work here quite a feature. HELEN HILL. Miss Hill is clerk and stenographer, coming here in February 1910. She has proved herself competent and unusually efficient. RAE SCHNEIDER. Miss Schneider is assistant to Miss Hill, having capably fulfilled her duties for the last three years. 13The senior class of 1914 is noted for its enthusiasm. Because of this “Pood" Doonan, our genial president, wears a smile that won’t come off and “Jock” Mungavin, our Professor of Sociology, always finds his classes awake and do:ng. The girls appreciate courtesies so those in sociology presented Mr. (Jude with a handsome bouquet because of his chivalry, but the girls in chemistry would talk too much so the hoys planned a banquet to he held in honor of the fair babblers. Many sympathizing friends aided them in their trouble. The Y. V. girls gave pickles, the 1 . B. hoys donated apples, quantities of cocoanut cookies made their appearance, and sonic cider, sweet three months before, was found in the attic. Bill Donalds made tartaric lemonade. When the girls ciphoncd the caustic potash, some burned their lips, some their throats, but all burned their tongues. The following day Mr. Whealdon wondered what ailed his class. The boys’ keen minds were dulled from overeating and the girls—well, they couldn’t talk. — In order to pay the expenses of the Little Tycoon the class planned a candy sale for which the Dormitory girls made fancy candv. The chemistry class contributed some pepsin fudge. This was all locked up for safe keeping in the rest room under the Normal stairs. Suddenly things began to look strange. The sky was lurid, flames burst through the normal windows, the chemistry room was a seething furnace. Soon the students were all outside but where was the candy? A mad rush was made for the rest room but three seniors like “Horatio at the Bridge” kept the crowd at bay. “Peggy with her Pea Shooter and Distinguished' rcjidled the crowd and ’’distinguished” the flames, while Harriet, our ardent suffraggtte. guarded the door and “Kate the Flunky” hid the candy. Gladys R.. ai! in a flurry, climbed through the window and saved some candy for Tom. Not even “Peggy's Fire Distinguished’ could stop the flames, however. The heat became oppressive, the walls tottered and fell. All but the tall chimney which stood alone, erect, undaunted: defying the elements. Will it fall? Look! It is swaying farther—farther.—down it goes! The crash awoke a senior girl who rubbed her eyes and stared. It was all a dream from eating that pepsin fudge. But alas! How “coming events cast their shadows ! cforc!” We have learned again that “the best laid plans o’ mice and men gang aft agly,” for soon the dream of the senior girl became an awful reality. While the seniors stood in awed silence and watched the crumbling walls, we each made a firm resolve to stand by the president, the faculty and our dear old Alma Mater or die in our tracks in the slush and red clay. 4 » 14EDA ROTII.

Miss Curtis in music: “When you sing your parts alone but when you put them together they sound like_______! ! !” they all sound well, 40JUNIOR CLASSSEEN FROM A FRESHMAN STANDPOINT. Oh ihose Juniors! How could we help but notice them as we entered the Assembly Room, their class being so much larger in numbers than that of previous years. They seemed a lot more important too. than the Junior class of last year. The first thing they did was to elect their class officers. They didn’t waste much time in starting things. This was partly due to Mr. Gillctt. their adviser. Look at their picnic in the gymnasium. Every Junior must have been there. The cats were great and judging from the noise they were having some gav time. There must Ik- a lot of talented j eople for some gave readings and musical selections and others sang. Someone, we think it was a member of the faculty, cracked a lot of jokes. Say. have you heard the Junior yell? Rest yell in school and the way they gave it made a fellow open up his eyes. In athletics they were right there. On the football field the boys did some fine playing, while in basketball, leave it to the Junior girls and the Junior boys to make the baskets. They took part not only in athletics blit in every activity of the school, oratorical contests, clubs, debating societies and entertainments. They sliowcd the same enthusiasm in these activities as they did in their meetings. I Icre’s to the class that the Freshmen adore. Here’s to the class that is sound to the core: I lore's to the class that the school bows before; Here’s to the Juniors of 1-9-1-4. Miss Geary keeps late hours wailing for John and Dora 43Til is is not all of us OFFICERS. Arden Jackson .President Henry Winkles.................. ........._... N ice-President Ann Christman ................ —........... Secretary-Treasurer The Sophomore Class is composed of five boys and a much greater number of girls. I his class has tried to follow the best plans throughout the year. So long as people stay at home, they arc apt to do more good than harm. The members have realized this fact, and have stayed at home and worked diligently. That is one of the reasons why the class is so bright. Its members realize that in two years they will be the seniors of this school, and they are diligently working to make the graduating class of nineteen hundred sixteen the l est class that ever left the institution. The Sophomore Class can boast of having as one of its members the most public and school spirited person in this school. Ann Christman has done more to keep up a good school spirit at foot-ball and basket-ball games than any other student. 14FRESHMAN CLASS We. the class of 1917. arc a large and energetic class of aljout forty-five mcinlxrrs. Shortly after the beginning of the school year, we held our election under the supervision of Miss Schlcgcl. We elected Myron Morrill, president. Walter OTier. vice-president, and Miss Gerda Nelson, secretary and treasurer. Can you imagine an institution of learning without a Freshman class? We can't. What would such a place he like? Without a Freshman class there would lie no one to whom to explain the intricacies of physiology, algebra. Crcsar's Commentaries and—oh well, you know the rest. Those cheerful sentences issuing from the platform sounding thus: "There will he a meeting of the Freshman cla s at 1 :15 today" etc., would be heard no more. Altogether the school would have such a solemn and intellectual, not to say gloomy, air that the students would be compelled to seek places less depressing. Hut cheer up! This dreadful thing will never happen. We have that progressive, fighting spirit which conquers in spite of hindrances, and which will take us through school in the face of difficulties. We have expressed our sympathy as best we could to those of our members who have suffered from sickness or sorrow. Although we have not emphasized the social side of our life very strongly, we have had one good time, and plan to have another before the end of the year. If you wish to see what may Ik accomplished by a class of healthy, ambitious, young people we would say to you. "WATCH US.” The Sub-Freshman class was one of the many big surprises of the year, both in athletics and social doings. Although often reminded of our inferior position by mcml)crs of the older classes and advised by them not to soar too high in our search for social eminence we had several class parties. The first one was in the gymnasium. Shortly after this Miss SjxHmer organized a sewing society among the girls, and many go xl times were enjoyed. They were not only well entertained but learned many useful things. We had a sleigh ride which proved a great success and set a good example for the fir t year classes of the future. Tn basket ball our girls were undoubtedly the champions of the school. Although they didn’t get a chance to play the Juniors, their victory over the Sophomores was so decided that there is not much doubt of the outcome of a game with the former. Miss Spooner and Miss Fierce, who arc our class officers, were largely responsible for our many successes and wc all ho| c that we arc fortunate enough to have the same advisers next year. However, nothing can lie done by good leaders if there are no gtxxl followers. We are only Sub-Freshmen but we do not envy anv of the older students. They will have to go to teaching, or start college, or perhaps lx so fortunate(?) as to get married. Wc will have our good limes now while wc are young, and being young, we are not likely to fall into any of the traps set for the older SUB-FRESHMAN girls and boys,Motto: “To do is to realize.” “Play and necessity are the chief means of learning. The successful teacher makes play the chief factor during the early years; but gradually more and more place is given to necessity, until she is the honored director of activity in manhood, or perchance, both give place to the twin sisters, doing and achievement, who smile alike upon work that is as joyous as play, and play that is as valuable as work.’ —E. A. Kirkpatrick. SENIOR CONCEIT We arc the class that’s getting through. And of all the work we had to do. Naught will we mention here today, For as you know, our work is play. Miss Barbour is our leader bold, YVc girls all bow to her. it's told. For she’s the mother of our dock. And what she says no one dare mock. Behold Miss Hill, our little dame. Who hath her story telling fame. At entertaining she's a shark. Site’s game to take most any lark. Let’s think about past things today. Oh! not the work, but just the play. Yes. even theory was a game. And never twice was it the same. Of parties there have Ik-cii a score. Why. we have lived them o’er and o'er. Is there one here who could forget The tildes we’ve had—the tables set? Will you remember when we’re away? There's our theory room wc loved so well In spite of that terrible sounding bell. But lire took our Normal School, you know. Wc all felt sad to sec it go. It gave us a chance to show our skill. To keep things running with a will. Ha! I la! you see there is nothing slow About our class you well may know, For where there' “Will." there’s always a way. And “Will" is necessary—even in play. Don't you think we’re a brilliant lot? Wc’rc sixteen strong, right on the dot. Our class will he in history some day. And then and there we'll lead the way. Wc want to help all mothers to sec That proper care is necessary To make the child a man of fame. “Physically, mentally, morally" sane. •16 The tricks we play here day bv dayWe have j et words, and some I'll tell you. “Unity” and ‘'insight” arc the two; Without “Unity" what would we he? Without "Insight" what could we sec? ell! people, we’ll bid you adieu, And for the things we’ve done for you. Remember us—conceited—oh, no! Hut as the class that made things go. Marguerite MacDonald. JUNIOR POEM Hearken! oh. readers! and you shall hear Of the Kindergarten girls in their Junior year. Within our class you will surely see Nineteen girls as jolly as can be. The first week of school was not much less Than one long stretch of homesickness. The dear old Seniors knowing our plight Came to our rescue that first Friday night. They planned for us an hour of fun In which we met them one by one. ’Twas but a taste of their good cheer Which has followed us throughout this year. The most exciting time last fall Was riding the goat at the Seniors’ call. ’Twas well that we did what they told us to, For we never cotdd tell and we never knew What might have happened had we failed to do All the terrible stunts that they put us through. Rut in dignity we do not lack. « For social functions we have a knack. With us this is Miss Hills first year, So of next importance in our social career Was a faculty party, a reception grand, For which both classes worked and planned. A dinner to our friends we gave, At which not a single gijrl looked grave. All. without planning had a very gay time For the Seniors have clowns in every line. For Miss Barbour we found it not too late With a birthday party to celebrate. In public the Juniors and Seniors appeared To dance the Tango, (it was feared); But very classical dances were seen Tn which wc were decked in yellow and green. We would not leave you with the thought That we ever do what wc “hadn’t ought.” Some thought the course was an easy one Their minds have changed in spite of our fun. Handwork, always handwork to do If perchance other duties arc few! When ere you’re looking for an hour of rest Just come to us and we’ll do our best To give you a dance that will l c worth while, And send vou back to the world with a smile. Myrtle Smith. 47COLLEGE COURSE The College course students of the Superior Normal school were not distinguished from those of the Junior class until this year, when their numbers were so swelled by newcomers that they decided to organize a class of their own. Accordingly, officers were elected: Alton Whitney. President: I-rank Brown. Vice-President: and Margaret McGuire. Secretary and Treasurer. Mr. Whitney left school before Christmas, so Frank Brown became President, pro tern. The members of this class number thirty-six. of which sixteen will finish this year. SONG OF THE COLLEGE CLASS OF T4. I. Their Rntrance. On the shores of Gitche Gurnee, In the city of Superior. Chief of the great tribe of Highbrows. President of Superior Normal. Said to all the school assembled. “We must have a College Course here." And the teachers joined him. saying. “We shall have a new Department.” Other Normals caught the spirit: Said unto the legislature. “Pass this bill at your next session.” And that body did their bidding. So a College Course was founded. Mr. Whealdon was made president. He the famed and mighty chemist. Spread the news like lightning dashing. Over all the distant country. “At the Normal of Superior A college class is to be started." From the valley of Ncmadji. From the Nelson Dewey High School. From the land of California. From the Superior Central High School, Came the future College students Flocking to Superior Normal. Came Bill Donalds and Earl Cowie. Came our Whitney and our Gabby. Came L. Whitmore and Chris Roholt, Came Frank Brown and Morgan Roberts. Came M. White and Caroline Connell. Came Mungavin. Wehrlc, Olsen. And l osidcs these youths so splendid. Came three maidens seeking knowledge. Two called Irma, one named Margaret. Fair were they and intellectual. Stood they all 'fore Mr. Whealdon. And that great and learned chemist Looking at their guileless faces All so fresh and verdant looking. Gleamed upon them with compassion. With paternal love and pity. “ 'Tis a shame that these i oor children. All o young and fair should come here To this awful grind at Normal." Then rose Gabby, he the mighty. Spokesman for this tribe of freshman. Courage marked his mien and manner. I’ire was in his heart and eve-hall Spake he thus to Mr. Whealdon. "Sir. we do not want your pity. We arc not weak things or feeble. And we came not for amusement. For we are no longer children. We arc strong and we aic powerful. Ready for the Normal battles. There is naught we cannot conquer. There is naught we can't accomplish. Give us difficulties numerous. We’ll surmount them or expire, sir.” At these words the chemist wondered, Trnlv. they were nobly uttered. Straight wav changed he his opinion. Then and there predicted greatness For this College Class of '14. Then he helped them make their programs. ir. Their Progress. In the field and on the rostrum. In the classroom, in society. Non-cxcelled were all their efforts Heroes on the gridiron were they, Mighty athletes always bringing Victory to the Black and Orange. ith what vigor they debated.Mow they silenced all the skeptics.

Hut it was in the various classrooms That these sixteen stars shone brightest German was hut child's play to them English. too. they handled easily. Mow they did write poems and stories! Mr. Ilemlxlt. the English teacher. Thought their prose possessed a humor Lacking in the Older Masters. Xext they tackled Sociology Learned to elevate the masses. Studied Ely's Economics. Settled questions of the ages. Questions o'er which sages | ondcrcd. With the ease ofyouthfulwisdom. Said Gillctl unto McCaskill “1 have never seen their equal.' Mr. Smith, the mathematician. Trembled often in his class-room. “1 do fear that these young people Will upset the science of number. So original are their methods.” Hut it was in the laboratory That their genius scintillated. Merc they gained their chemical knowledge Of the composition of all substance. Here their wit and humor sparkled Like the crystals in their test-tubes. Many a merry hour they spent here, Many a merry joke they cracked here, As they mixed and stirred and tested, Roiled and strained and separated Tn their faithful oil-cloth aprons. Merc they tested all food-products. Many manufacturers trembled. Changed their methods in a twinkling; For they feared the awful verdict Of these young and brilliant scientists. So the world can thank these students That today it has pure food-stuffs. So it was in all the branches That these youths and maidens studied That they surpassed all the records Ever made here at the Xormal. (This is true, though twas not known. They had learned the art of bluffing.) All the teachers were astounded All the other students marvelled "Who are these that come among us, ()n their brows the light of knowledge, In their hearts the thirst for learning?” So progressed the Class of '14 And the next year others entered. They now tread the trail blazed for them By this College Class of 14. MI. Their Departure. Tunc has passed; their work is over Merc at the Superior Xormal. Grief reigns in the Class of 14. They must leave their Alma Mater Where for two long years they labored. In the higher halls of learning They'll bring fame unto the Xormal By the great things they'll achieve there. "So. farewell, yc Xormal teachers. And farewell, ye Xoitmal students Longer would we fain he with you Rut the 'Varsity awaits us." Thus they sing amidst their sorrow. And lest you forget their prowess. Here and now is writ their record. Here where all who pass may read it. And since they'll soon take departure From the shores of Gitche Gumec. On the leaves of Gitche Gumec Here, at least, they'll live forever. On the pages of that Annual Of that splendid Normal Annual. —M. A. Me.

VIVIEN GREY. Letter I. Carleton Seminary. Dear Miss Grey:—I am doing a very unconventional thing in writing to you. I know, but I am hoping you will understand. Always—from the time I can remember anything—I have loved to hear of the South. I’m perfectly crazy about Southern war stories and dialect poems, negro lullabies, etc..—you know what 1 mean. And I’ve always wanted to know a really live, flesh and blood person from there, looking through the Virginia "U" “Quiver” today I sav vour name mentioned several times,—Vivien Grey, of South Carolina. And ail-in-a-flash there came to me this brilliant idea of writing to vou. Would vou mind corresponding with me and telling all about yourself? Please don’t think I am simply “dippy." I realize I am asking an "awful" lot. Rut if you would Ik so kind, you would make A very happy and grateful girl, of Bonnie Archer (Freshman). (Letter Forty-eleventh.) Carleton Seminary I do not like thee. Dr. Grey. The reason why T icill note say. —My version. You arc a careless, thoughtless girl, that’s what you are. 1 sat for my picture just ’specially so that it would be the first thing you saw when you opened your Christmas l ox and now many moons have come and gone and the physiognomy of mv Southern friend docs not grace my dressing table. I accused you of having pictures taken when you graduated and you meekly admitted the charge, but had the "nerve" to assert that you "had mislaid them." For Pity’s sake—find hem or have some more taken before this Christmas. Oh Yec! I laughed till I was almost sick over your trials with the housekeeper. and yet I had the funniest wistful-lonesomy feeling, too. There you arc. —without near kith nor km.—unwilling to accept favors from friends (Oh. 1 can read between the lines)—practicing medicine and making a success of it. bless your heart!—but annoyed almost to distraction by incompetent housekeepers. And here am I.—(with a father and sister, 'tis true, but very far away)—incapable of practicing medicine or doing anything else useful.—except—keeping house. Did I ever tell of the passion that's blighting my life? No? Then listen. 50In all the years of my hoarding school and college existence I've never known what it really is to have a home, ’cepting for one summer ;vacation when Daddy and I tried apartments. And I never can describe the rapture, the bliss, of that period. hy. you old Doctor-lady, you never can understand the delirious joy 1 took in arranging and managing that little Hat; and when I could rout our one maid from the kitchen and concoct dishes of my own—I tell you il was Heaven! Father enjoyed it too and began to get fat but now that he's rather forgotten what fun it was he says he can t spend the time from business to go “galivanting clear to the other end of town" for his meals, lint you just wait till next summer! I haven’t really settled down to work yet this year. It has been such fun visiting with all the old girls and teachers and observing the Freshmen. I just love starting-in! Everyone has a complete new set of clothes, of course, and we just stand around and gasp and explain as the trunks arc unpacked. I’ll tell you more about school next time. 1 intend to work “awfully’’ hard this last year and try to capture some of the honors lying around loose. There goes the dinner bell.—Write soon. Your loving friend. Bonnie. I S. Get that housekeeper a tireless cooker so she will not waste so much gas and can have your food hot when you’re late. —13. Carlcton Seminary. Dear Extravagant Girl—You!—How can I ever thank you for the books? Of course they would contain the poems I love best in all the world. Your gifts seem always so personal that way. I am beginning to believe you when you say you know me very, very well. 1 have had the most exciting time during the holidays. You know I told you I was going home with Roxana. It was just like going to a regular house-party. Her brother Jimmie brought a chum home with him from Harvard and then there were some cousins and aunts and uncles there,—and everything was very jolly. Daddy would ap| oar ever so often and take Roxic and me out to dinner and to the theater, and then there was no end of social events to attend. I never fell so frivolous in all my life. Just between you and me and the fence-post. Vcc, I think I shall ask Jimmie to the “Prom" next spring. He hinted and hinted for invitation when I was there but he behaved so badly that I though I’d punish him bv letting him wait. Dear Doctor-lady! I saw your name mentioned in the paper. You had performed some wonderful ojieration on a little boy’s spine. I am so proud— so happy in your success. I feel so awfully selfish, however, when I think of the good you could Ik doing in the time you spend on me. But you have helped me too,—more than you can realize. I am so glad you liked the couch cover. I thought it would make your den look cozier. I’ve started a pillow to match but there’s no knowing when it will ever get finished. Again I thank you for your lovely gift. It is iate and I must get mv beauty sleep. This is good-night, dear, from Your loving friend, Bonnie. Yee! May I come and keep house for you? Xow wait a minute before you scream “Help!” 1 know I’m silly, impulsive—harebrained, if you will, but listen, first. This morning I got a letter from Mae. (you know, my married sister in London) and she has succeeded in making me thoroughly miserable. What do 51you suppose she has announced? That she and papa have definitely settled my future! Yes. I am to sail in the spring for England and make my home with her. (Home! in that old stone mansion with grim old “IEnglish" servants every place you look.) I will be presented at court next season and with my“bcauty” and her '‘devoted efforts” 1 should be able to make a “brilliant match” She has already placed several names on the eligible list—an African millionaire and some titles,— I forget who they were. Wouldn't that make you stvearF And she showed my picture to one of the idiots and he called me a “blue ribbon winner." Ugh!! I will not marry a hateful old foreigner and give up my ideal—my American with a Southern drawl. Oh please, please say I may come to you next summer. Yee. Does the plan sound so utterly mad? You sec. T could marry Jimmie—he's awfully nice and jolly and certainly preferable to the kind Mac would choose—but it would be such a dreadful shock to him. I've refused him half-a-dozen times, and he’s gotten used to it. And besides. 1 couldn’t. Would I be a perfect nuisance. Yec Dear? Really. I do know all alxnit housekeeping. I'm quite economical, too—and I can make the best pudding. You'd never guess what is in it. And, don't you see. you’d be all that money ahead that you pay your housekeeper now. Don't misunderstand. I know that it would be the greatest favor in the world. But I’d be the most grateful of girls. Answer just as soon as you decide. Ever you sincere friend. Bonnie. P. S. If it mean any sacrifice on your part—don't! It isn't a killing matter, you know. B. Carleton Seminary. Oh! Yee. Vec, Vec. Vee ! ! Of course I can’t understand your vague reasons for suddenly coming North. I just take the whole thing as a special act of Providence for my benefit.—and I'm so excited I can't eat. You were perfectly right about my housekeeping stunt. Three weeks ought to give us time to decide on the future of the whole world—if talking can do it. I can wait until you come. Don’t forget to tell me the train you arc coining on and I'll meet you. And don't be too sure about recognizing me. Miss Grey. Pictures never show ftechies, you know. Now hurry! Impatiently yours. Bonnie. Carleton Seminary. Dear Sir:—I've had three weeks to get naturalized to the masculinity of you but I cannot write "Yec" with the old sang-froid. Do you know. I've been dreadfully lonesome for my old girl-cluim. Our friendship was very sweet to me. and I am still a wee hit shy of the big serious man who has offered to take her place. When you were here and I could listen to your persuasive arguments delivered in that convincing drawl of vours I turned traitor to Miss Yivicn Grey, but after you had gone I wanted to sit right down and tell mv old confidante all about it. Instead. I rummaged around until I had found all your old letters and read every single one. They sound so funny now. In the first ones I can see you striving to get used to your role. I thought it the natural reserve of a stranger at the time. But soon you became a hardened deceiver and led me on to all sorts of "inmost” confidences. I don't 52chink it was exactly fair, and yet I am not sorry since you found so much to tike in the little Northern girl. 1 have all the things that stand for the old “Yce” spread out on the door here in front of me. And in my lap is another letter in the same handwriting.—and a photograph, at Iasi. You and 1 created ’A ce” and I flatter myself that we did pretty well, but this letter and photograph represent work of the Master Creator. So I am not ashamed to confess that I care more for these two than all the other letters. Ixioks and things put together. But though I insist that I am not ashamed I think I have said quite enough for this time. Sincerely yours. Bonnie Archer. P. S. i simple ignore vour housekeeping proposal--------for the present. I. C. '14. Our work is almost over. We're ready to embark. Providing you, Oh, Faculty, Will give a passing mark. Just one more set of Finals And then the fateful day When we with our diplomas Will gaily prance away. This was our song a week ago, When we were rushed and blue, Lest anything should happen To stop us getting through. But now we have our sheep-skins And do we ‘‘gaily prance”? Not much! We all turn sorrowfully, ith many a backward glance. We hate to leave the Normal But we’ll not linger here, r.cst we should lose our dignity And drop a foolish tear. 53 □ 5 rfi (nY $ iS JL J IL 0 k J n air 5U KATIE’S STORY.

The assembly hall of the Superior Normal was filled with the students whom the German Club had brought to hear Miss Bradshaw's recital. The German scholars and their visitors were alike charmed by the exquisite melodies that filled the old hall. All thoughts of bocks had been laid aside, and we were—just happy. But deep within the wall of the floor beneath the genius of destruction had already begun its work. After eighteen years wear the insulation of the wires in Miss Kirwan's office had lost their power and the electric spark quickly ignited the framework of the wall. The small quantity of air within the partition gave the sparks no opportunity to burst into a blaze, but nevertheless a chemical action took place, by which the wood charred and produced a combustible gas. And as the music flowed on the slow burning continued, creeping through the walls and tilling every crevice with this unburned and highly inflammable gas. The recital over, the crowd slowly passed out. and in the course of less than twenty minutes only the night watchman remained. As he was making the rounds of the building about an hour later he heard a strange crackling sound which he took to be caused by sparks on the electric switchboard. But the switchboard proved, upon examination, to he in perfect working order. Continuing his investigation he noticed smoke. This he traced to Miss Kirwan’s office, and there he discovered flames between the l ookcasc and the wall. After turning in a fire alarm he secured a hand chemical fire extinguisher and made an effort to stop the flames. He was soon assisted by Leonard Moran who had noticed the blaze while passing the building. For a time it looked as though they had it under control. But just then the fire extinguishers became exhausted. Immediately the watchman ran into the kindergarten to get a new supply, but while he was out a window broke and the flames, lashed into furv by the strong cast wind, spread so rapidly that it was with the greatest difficulty that the two made their way out of the buiiding. Within ten minutes of the time the window broke the entire central portion of the building was one mass of flames from basement to roof. With the wind fanning the growing blaze the fire spread rapidly in both directions until the whole building was on fire from end to end. Sliortly after the alarm had been sent in. a throng of spectators had assembled to witness a sight which, in spectacular beauty, could not he surpassed. The fire companies of both Superior and Duluth exerted themselves especially to save the neighboring residences which were in great danger on account of the strong wind. They realized from the beginning that the building could not he saved owing to the explosions of gas which greatly added to the intensity of the fire. It was a night long to lxr remembered—a night on which a great many people saw some of their most treasured jjossessions forever lost. We students all loved the old Normal even if we did occasionally relx-1 against some of the work there given us to do. We felt at home in the familiar halls and class rooms, and there was more than one who almost felt as if the foundations of their entire existence had fallen away when they realized that they could never enter the old Normal again. In fact (as one of the faculty expressed it) we all lost something, but perhaps it was all for the best. Our new building will far surpass the old one; and then, too. there is a certain inspiration in letting people know that the destruction of our building isn’t quite enough to daunt the spirit of a school like the Superior Normal. 57GITCHE GUMEE STAFF Editor-in-chief............

James Mungavin The epidemic known as Spring Fever is not so ravaging in its attack, so deplorable in its effect here at the Superior Normal as it is in schools in other parts of the state. The reason is obvious. We need more enthusiasm, in connection with the organizations of our school. They cannot thrive without it. Join the societies and help keep things humming. The Junior girls and boys feel keenly the loss of the old railing over which they faith full v hung in many a light and diverting conversation after and between school hours.' We hope they will be able to find a similar supjxm in the new building. The following telegraphic message from a well-known Alumnus was received by President McCaskill on the morning after the fire. “I hear that the Superior Normal has burned. Nothing doing. The Superior Normal School 59can’t be burned." Me is right. Our school has not burned—just our building, nor has our school spirit been checked in its usual outlets by our material loss. SW Rumor has it that plans are being considered for converting the triangular piece of ground between the Normal School and the High School into a splendid park. This "thing of beauty" would indeed be "a joy forever" not only to the students of both institutions but to every citizen of Superior. It is a fine idea. Let us boost it. HI We here take occasion to thank Mr. Gillctt. our Advisory Editor, for the assistance he has given us in getting out this edition of the Gitchc. Despite the fact that the demands upon bis time have of late been multitudinous, lie has never failed to give us bis entire attention whenever we needed it. We have found his suggestions timely, his advice of the best. When affairs became tangled—as they often did—we have always turned to him. and invariably lie has straightened out our perplexities and sent us on our way rejoicing. The staff appreciates the big part he has played in making this number a success. 03 In the days when East End was Superior and Superior. West Superior, a number of the Gitchc Gunicc bearing the inscription 189— on its cover had the following dedication. “In order that this book may l c fully appreciated, we the editors dedicate the volume to ourselves.” Those people certainly felt the importance of their position. 03 As the days and weeks roll by we arc becoming more and more acclimated to our new surroundings; beginning to feel less and less like l ereavcd orphans. Our teachers no longer wander about, as at first, like lost freshmen. Occasionally a laugh is heard ringing through the halls that arc growing strangely familiar; now and then a joke is cracked in the classrooms even as of old. All of which goes to show that our irrepressible spirits cannot be crushed even by a calamity as great as that which has fallen up us. Three cheers for our wit and humor! Long may it bubble! Yes. we are cheering up! For a couple of days after the tragedy, it must be admitted, we trailed around the ashes of what had been our pride, looking as limp as rag-dolls and feeling as forlorn as lost Babes in the Wood. But that period has passed. For a while we mourned the loss not so much of the actual building but the life for which it stood, the memories that clung round each familiar haunt and corner: the intangible atmosphere of the old place that vanished in the ruins. But our grief is passed. Immediately the period of adjustment and reconstruction set in. It demanded our entire attention, our best efforts, our finest team-work. It tested the ingenuity of the teachers, the ability and spirit of the students and they have stood the test. With only a few smoky, water-soaked volumes which we rescued at the risk of our lives from the falling debris we have plodded onward, without a halt, in the path of knowledge. The faculty, many of whom watched the results of practically the best of their life’s work go up in smoke, have displayed a brave and sunny optimism throughout that has been nothing short of an inspiration to us. And when we see before us the plans of the splendid new fire-proof edifice that is soon to rise upon the site of the old. we realize that sometimes progress comes through destruction. So. we stand with our faces forward, filled with a fond remembrance of the past; with roseate hopes for the future. But so far we have been showering bouquets upon ourselves. All our work 60would not have 1 ccii possible were it not for the generous and prompt aid extended to us in our hour of need by such public-spirited men ns Principal Wade of the High Scliool and Mr. Maddock. Superintendent of schools. It is due to their efforts that we arc comfortably installed in this fine High School building and that the Training Department goes on uninterrupted. The Public Library also has been practically placed at our disposal, not only for use in our reference work but as a meeting place for our classes and societies. We appreciate the good-will of these and the many others who helped us surmount our difficulties or who have inconvenienced themselves in any way that we might be accomodated. We who arc Seniors now will not be here next year to enjoy the fine new structure that is to be. but we congratulate the under-classmen upon it and in leaving we bequeath to them the school-spirit which has always been ours and which this year's big experience together has strengthened. May they carry it with them into the halls of the New Normal. Then truly shall we have a school which shall more than ever justify the closing words of the old song that we have warbled so long and loyally. “Superior Normal, proud and grand. The finest Normal in the land.” (R Mr. Wyatt joined the ranks of our peerless Faculty this year, to instiH the principles of Physics and Algebra into our minds. He is filled with his subject, having spent last year in study under the famous Professor Milliken of Chicago Univer-sity. Probably he finds our chilly climate quite a change from that of his home in Tennessee, in the Sunny South.

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB NOTES. “The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sound, Is fit for treason, strategems and s|x ils; The motions of his spirit arc dull as night, And his a flections dark as Erebus.” Under the efficient direction and management of Miss Curtis, faculty adviser, and Hazel Cameron, president, together with the talent and faithfulness of the members, the Glee club of 1913-14 has been a great success. Tli Glee club made its first public ap] earancc at an Educational Board meeting in the Superior High school auditorium, early in the fall. Later they sang "Ebb and Flow.” anti “Dixie Kid." for the industrial Commission at the Grand Opera House. Afterward the club received from the president of the Industrial Commission a very fine letter of thanks and commendation upon, their splendid rendition of the songs. At the time of the Agricultural Institution, the girls sang, winning hearty applause, especially on the number. “Dixie Kid.” Among numerous other places of appearance they sang frequently at the Superior Mission, and at chapel. The girls will sing. “W elcome Pretty Primrose” and the “Spinning Chorus,” from “The Flying Dutchman" at commencement day exercises. The members of the club are: ■ First Soprano—Geraldine Brewsough. Hazel Cameron. Jane Van Vleck, Louise Taylor. Mary LcClair, Loretta McTMiec. Second Soprano—Verna Adams. Mary Loney, Blanche Douglas, Ruth Sweetman. Susan Coleman. Katherine Newton, Lcose le Tendre, Doris Jenkins, Nora Jenson. Eda Roth. Evanda Becker. Altos—Florence Thomas. Elizabeth Lightbody. Hannah Hovey, Kate Wil-lan. Nell Ritchie, Lois Anderson. SOCIAL SCIENCE CLUB. This society was organized the last of September, when a committee was appointed by Mr. Gillctt to draw up a constitution. The purpose of the club was to further the study of the social sciences. A meeting was called, a temporary chairman chosen and the following officers elected : President ________________________________________ Francis Wrhelan Vice President ................................................ Doris Jenkins Secretary .......................... -......-...... —.......—..Grace Post Treasurer ................................................. Mabel O’Neil We had no regular meetings of the club, the work being very informal. Mr. Burt of the Superior Mission, spoke to us on his experiences as a social welfare worker. Miss Thiclman. also of the Mission, told of her work in the recent housing investigation here. Mr. Dclwichc of Ashland, talked about farming in Northern Wisconsin. Mr. Harthill district business manager for the Machinists' Union, explained the purpose and work of his union. Mr. Harrow. the noted criminal lawyer of Chicago, discussed the present school system. The work of the Industrial Commission was explained to us by Mr. Beck, one of its members. Mr. Lenroot, congressional representative from this district, discussed the new tariff and currency bills. 65This valuable addition to the already large number of school organizations had its start a year ago. but aside from a few practices nothing was accomplished. Soon after the beginning of the present school year, the old members, under the direction of our very able musical instructor. Miss Curtis, got together, reorganized, elected a president and a bevy of other unimportant minor officials. A committee of three was appointed by the president to draw up a constitution.. After a week’s lalx r by the committee a pseudo-constitution was at last formulated. read at the next meeting, and adopted. Practice was started with a great show of enthusiasm. The club met every Thursday evening at half-past seven in Miss Curtis’ room at the Normal. Numbers were rendered before the Assembly and at evening entertainments held at the Normal. 'flic school has long l»een in need of a Men’s Choral club as well as a debating society, and the two show that the boys arc winners on the concert floor as well as on the gridiron. The members oi the club arc: Sidney French, Louis Newton. John Connell. Frank Brown, Coburn Bertrand, Otto Rcctz. Bert Bcglingcr, Gerald Doonan. Sigur Martinson. W illiam Wassard. Arden Jackson. Henry Gilbert. Myron Morrill. Haviland Gilbert. Louis Johnson, Paul Williams, Ray Wehrle, Fred Stone, Harvey Johnson. LITERARY SOCIETIES. Chapter I. Through the enthusiastic efforts of Mr. Palmer, on the evening of October ninth, ninetccn-thirtcen, two literary societies were organized, namely, the Hermian and the Palmerian. Presidential honors were bestowed on Margaret McGuire by the former, and upon Morgan Rol crts by the latter. Chapter II. The societies often joined in the programs given every two weeks. Members of the Kindergarten class and outsiders kindly lent their services on these occasions. Chapter III. The societies joined, but did not decide u| on a name. Louis Johnson l ecame president. Chapter IV. The society suffered by the departure of its president. Chapter V. The big fire destroyed our meeting place. Chapter VI. Here's to the Literary Society of 1914-15. May it prosper in the new Normal! 67DRAMA STUDY CLUBDRAMA STUDY CLUB. Shortly after the beginning of school last fall. Miss Nona MacQuilkin called a meeting of the Drama Study club, and at the same time invited new. mcmlnns into the society. At this meeting the constitution was revised and the following officers were elected: President. Herman Mueller; vice president. Laura While; secretary. Norma Johnson: treasurer. Eda Roth. It was decided that the club meet every two weeks on Thursday afternoon, and that at each meeting refreshments be served, four girls acting as hostesses. The attendance at the meetings spoke well for the interest of the members in the work of tile club. The burning of the Normal School did not interfere in any way with our meetings; the Dormitory and several homes were opened to us. for which we are duly thankful. It is the purpose of the club to bring its members in touch with the best modern dramas, and to cultivate in them a better taste for dramatic art; to acquaint them with plays and playwrights that are well worth knowing. The following dramas have been read this year: "As a Man Thinks.” “Pcarct," "The Scarecrow.” “Barbara Krietchie.” "A Romance” and '’The Blue Bird.” THE S. N. S. C. The suffrage sentiment has been alive and ardent in the Superior Normal for some time, for our girls arc always quick to recognize every uplifting movement, ever eager to respond to the call of progress, but it is only of late through their united efforts that they have made themselves a force for the cause of suffrage that is making itself felt in every part of the city. The occasion to organize came when Miss Alice Curtis of Milwaukee, State Organizer, visited our city and spoke to the students in behalf of Suffrage. She touched a chord of enthusiasm in every girl’s heart with the result that the Superior Normal Suffrage club was formed on the s| ot.. Agnes Hart was made president; Margaret McGuire. vice president, and Violet McLaughlin, secretary-treasurer. This society lias grown until it now includes all of the faculty and nearly every student in the school, and it has never known an idle moment since its birth. ()n the evening of May first, the members journeyed across the bay whera they furnished a program for the girls of the Duluth Normal and inspired the latter to organize. On May second. National Suffrage Day. the S. N. S. C. attended the rallv in a body and helped to make the event the big success that it was. This society was also represented at the recent city cleanup conference. Of late the black and yellow of the Suffragists have been very much in evidence around school, everyone wishing to profess his allegiance to the Cause. Tt is not an uncommon sight to sec Miss Christman hurrying down the hall, hotly pursued by an eager mob. all demanding that she sell them buttons from her—alas!—always too limited supply. The efficient Lecture. Press and Organization committees, headed by Ellen E. Clark. Geraldine Brewsaugh and Anne Christman, respectively, are doing some splendid work. The accomplishments of the S. N. S. C. arc merely a promise of what its members will do for Suffrage in the future, when thev shall have gone forth into the various walks of life, each giving the gift of her woman’s personality to the great movement which shall finallv achieve its end—the enfranchisement of women, an event which will be followed by an era of social and spiritual development the like of which the world has never known. 69THE LYCEUM DEBATING CLUB. President -------:--------------------------Otto A. Rectz Vice President .....-.....—............. Rudolph Hanson Secretary ..........—..... .......... ..Morris Desmond Treasurer Anton (hnemik Program Committee—Paul Wiers. W illiam Hassard, Sidney Fiench and George Andersen. The work of the Lyceum Debating club has been very systematic and harmonious this year, although the loss of several of last year’s most energetic member was keenly felt. This more concise work was probably due to Professor Palmer's frequent and suggestive visits. It was he who placed clearly before tiic club the true principles of debate, and gave debating a more definite and concrete meaning. Gradually the boys worked toward more logical and better organized speeches. On .March the twenty-seventh, the club made its first attempt at public speaking. The society was challenged by the Duluth High School to debate the question. "The Recall of Judges." The challenge was accepted and the affirmative side of the question was chosen. Our team consisted of Sidney French. Francis Whelan and Morris Desmond, 'flic fact that the debate was held at Duluth, before a large foreign audience, was something of a drawliack to the Normal team and they were defeated. Nevertheless all the visiting members were well pleased with the logic, the conciseness and the manliness of the home team. A second debate with River Falls Normal was scheduled, hut because of tiic recent fire, causing a loss of a convenient gathering place for the club, it was deemed advisable to withdraw the accepted challenge and to discontinue meetings until next year. Although the work of the club was not the best possible, it was encouraging, and with the aid of the strong members left to continue the work, there need he no fear for its future success.

Ella Strassburger Secretary-Treasurer ----------------------- Claire Smith Since October the German club lias liclcl regular meetings every other Wednesday night. The purpose of the club is to increase our ability in the use of conversational German and to give us a more intimate acquaintance with Germany. German poets and songs. It also furnishes a pleasant hour of recreation. In connection with the study of German songs. Miss Marv Syer Bradshaw of Duluth, was brought to Superior. Friday. March twenty-seventh. A pleasant as well as profitable evening was spent—the last in the "Dear Old Normal." As was said: "Since the Normal was destined to burn, it seems good to think it had such a glorious end." Miss Bradshaw had sung it’s Swan Song. The German chib, insignificant as it seemed to some, had done what no other club attempted to do and what none will now be able to do. The destruction of its home has not prevented the club from continuing its meetings. “Vorwart” soil das motto sein. and “Vorwarts” we arc going. We may be few in members, we mav not make much noise, but we’re all there. —E. H. S. 71GERMAN CLUBORATORICAL ASSOCIATION. William Jones ______ Otto Reetz__________ Margaret McGuire Some of the enthusiasm which Mr. Daly’s fine successes of last year aroused in the school, carried over to the 1913-14 season, and very soon after the beginning of the school year inspired various would-be orators to begin work upon their orations. The result was a scries of orations which for thought and composition have never been surpassed in the school, and were not surpassed by those presented at the Inter-Normal State Contest at Milwaukee a month later. As Mr. Rovce said: “Here is an opportunity for the audience to acquire a liberal education for the small sum of twenty-five cents.” The speakers and their orations were: Mr. Otto Reetz__________________________________-“Justice of War" Mr. Francis Whelan .......................“The New Democracy” Mr. Louis Johnson ____________________________“Yellow Journalism" Mr. W. Jones "( Hir Cities" Miss Eda Denstnore “Problem of the Slums" Mr. John Omernik ...“Conservation of Our National Resources” Miss Esther Minor_____________________________.—“Robert Emmett” Mr. Reetz won first place. Mr. Whelan second, and Mr. Johnson, third, the other speakers won fourth place, for we refuse to admit there were any places below fourth, the contest was too close. In the State or Inter-Normal contest, held at Milwaukee March twentieth, our orator. Mr. Reetz, won fifth place. This cannot be considered a reflection upon the ability of our orator, for whatever the opinion of the judges, it must be admitted that Mr. Reetz was a worthy representative of a school which in both athletics and oratory stands near the top of the honor roll. There arc two scltools or styles of oratory, or. to be plainer, there is oratory and speaking. The old school, or the art of oratory, carries with it artificial gestures and is more or less dramatic: the modern school, which is better termed shaking than oratory, is simple and direct. I11 the State Contest the judges seemed to prefer the former style. Mr. Reetz is strictly modern. The winner of the State Contest was Mr. Kuelml of Oshkosh. He sjxjke on "War. Although Milwaukee, the meeting place of the Inter-Normal contest, is a long distance from Superior, the local association was able to send a delegation of four people besides the orator. Miss McQuilkin also went to Milwaukee. Previous to the local contest, which was held February sixth, a rally was held during assembly period, and Mr. Gillett and Mr. Whealdon distinguished themselves as entertainers of a high order. Mr. Gillett gave an imitation of a young platform artist upon his first appearance before the public: Mr. Whealdon told us “it all depends on the way you sav it" and illustrated by showing us the correct and incorrect method of promising to a young lady. It is understood that Mr. Whealdon has had a vast and varied experience in this art and it is with pleasure that we recommend the lovelorn to seek his advice upon the delicate subject of the projjosal. The result of this rally was a good attendance at the contest, and pretty fair gate receipts. Later Messrs. Smith. McCarthy. Keogan, Uranian and Wvatt of the family, met a scrub team of the students in a benefit basketball game which netted the association about twentv-four dollars, and enabled us to help d fray the expenses of our Milwaukee delegation. Officers. ---------------------------President --------------------- Vice-President ......-..........Secretary-Treasurer 73THE Y. W. C. A. The Young Women's Christian Association, although a new organization, is a strong. influential one. Its aim is to bring the young women students into closer fellowship with one another, to make the out-of-town girls feel at home, and to bring a richer, deeper meaning into the student girls' life. The first days of the school year are very busy ones for the girls. They meet the new students, help them find their rooms and try to make them feel at home. Then on the first Friday of school they give a delightfully informal party in the gymnasium. Before long an inspiring and impressive initiation service is held, and the regular year’s work is begun. The devotional meetings, which arc held every Tuesday afternoon, arc the most important feature of the society. These meetings are led by students, faculty. or speakers from outside the school. The work of the organization is not confined, however, to its own selfish interests. Every alternate Friday night the social service committee arranges a program to be given at the Lake Su|)crior Mission. The committee this year under the leadership of Miss Millard has provided some very enjoyable entertainments. These programs, given mostly by the girls in the association, arc greatly appreciated. At die end of the school year the annual banquet is given. This is one of the most elaliorate events of the year, and is always greatly enjoyed. And then, when the school work is over, comes the annual conference. This is held at Lake Geneva for the student organizations of the central states. Our organization is always represented by two or three delegates. 74Northern Conference.

A creditable football team may be formed without a coach, but not so with a basketball team. Mere, even more than in football. Coach Kcogan’s work was in evidence. He grasped the players with a firm band and welded a perfect engine out of them. Had not so many of our players been unfortunate, we would now be boasting of two championships. BASKETBALL TEAM.

She is a bright, promising young lady, and this will give her a chance to get employment outside of factory or shop at wages that will make her independent.” Entering School is a move on the part of any individual which is endorsed by the public generally and there are ten chances to one that there are several business men who are watching the progress of Miss Davis in her efforts to obtain an education, with a view to employing her when her preparation is completed. Business education commands respect, and THAT IS THE INDEX TO YOUR SALARY. “I Hired a Young Man, Van Leuven, From Your School about two years ago, put him in as stenographer, and he has more than filled the bill. I have recently advanced him to a position of office manager. “We employ from eight to ten clerks in the office and I want a young man to come in to help take the details of the work off Van Leuven’s shoulders. “If you have some promising material, send them over.” It is typical of scores of others which have occurred yearly in the experience of our employment department.
