And it came to pass on the fifteenth day of the ninth month, in the year of our I ord nineteen hundred and fourteen, that a tribe of Freshmen came forth from the Central High School and passed down the street called Belknap. 2. When the leader among them cried: Behold, what manner of people are these approaching our temple of learning? 3. Hut the others stood silent and marveled; for when before had there come in their path such fair and intelligent maidens, such wise and mighty youths? 4. So the Freshmen counselled together and selected a tribal spokesman, whom they sent to commune with the strangers. 5. And when the spokesman returned, bringing with him one of the strangers, lie spake thus to his comrades: 6. Behold the mighty Edward, of the tribe of Hinterbcrg. Speak to us, () noble Edward, of yonder valiant throng. 7. And verily I say unto you, the hearts of the green and ignorant Freshmen are filled with wonder as they gaze on the learned Edward, and list to his words of wisdom. S. Behold, we of yonder throng are the exalted and scholarly Seniors, the pride of the Superior Normal. .Many are the Seniors that have gone before us. but verily 1 prophesy unto you that the works of these shall perish; but our fame shall endure forever. 9. And so it was. Chapter 11. 1. And after many days, this mighty tribe of Seniors assembled in a great room to counsel on matters of state. 2. And great was the joy among them; for already their wisdom had become known among men; 3. Yea, even the noble teachers, those mighty and exalted sages, had proclaimed them to he flu champions in all wisdom and understanding. 4. Now it came to pass that they chose a leader, and the maiden was called Grace, surnamed Cliff. 5. And there were other rulers of this tribe: Cadigan, mighty in valor: Mary, surnamed Clark, the keeper of the tribe’s gold; and Marian Mooney, the learned scribe. 6. And it came to pass that the leader. Grace, spake unto the tribe, saying: Ect us rejoice and have a feast and exclude these insignificant tribes, the Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen, from partaking of it.16 G I T C H E G U M E E 7. And the whole tribe rose up and said: () mighty Grace, thou of the . wondrous brain and intellect, so we shall. 8. And verily I say unto you, they made merry at this party, and the rooms of Crownhart Hall rang with the joy thereof. Chapter III. 1. And lo, it came to pass, when winter’s snow had melted away, that a great sorrow fell upon the tribe. 2. For in the grand assembly, when all the tribes were gathered together to join their voices in song, there appeared the sage, McCaskill, the exalted chief of the temple; 3. And under his arm he carried a mighty book, and on his face there lurked the smile of triumph. 4. And from the book he read the names of all the tribesmen. 5. And lo, it came to pass that many of the learned Seniors were missing. 6. And the sage cried out in his wrath: Evil are the ways of the Seniors, and their villainy endureth forever. 7. Verily the path of the learned is rough and stormy. Chapter IV. 1. Verily, verily, the tribe is about to leave the temple forever, and great is their misery and woe. 2. Hut remember the words of the mighty Edward to the Freshmen: Verily, their works will never perish and their fame will endure forever. 3. And let no man take away from this the record of the tribe of the Seniors of nineteen fifteen. GITCHE GUMEE STAFF Kditor iiiCliicf.....................................................................

We wish to thank Mr. Gillett for his advice and help, which has enabled us to publish this book; Miss Curtis, for her splendid selection of records which makes every Victrola hour a source of inspiration and joy; Miss MacQuilkin, for her untiring efforts to bring to Superior the best of music, giving an opportunity to hear something really fine at a price that is within the reach of every student; the program committee, for its choice of speakers and lecturers for assembly period; and the rest of the faculty, not only for training the debating or athletic reams, producing beautiful pageants, increasing the art work or whatever the particular task of each may be, hut for the inspiring and broadening influence of their personalities, as well as their class work. In return for all this, we wish we could have produced a finer book, one which would more nearly have fulfilled our ideals and aspirations. We realize that the Gitciie Gumf.b is not perfect, that we have fallen short in many ways; but remember we arc human. We have done our best.

Riley) The observation classes, and the stories “without fail,” And the flurry in the classes when we thought we had some mail; And, when that work was over, then to game class we would hie— Oil the days gone by! Oh the days gone by, I lie weaving and the folding piled away up to the sky, Oh I wonder how we did it, in the days gone by. In the days gone by, we taught the Model Schools, Applying, in so doing, Friedrich Frocbel’s golden rules; We taught the little children to sing, and dance, and play, And make the most they could of life in every sort of way. And thus we “hitched their wagons to a star” up in the sky, And worked "right hard" to do it, in the days gone by. Oh the days gone by, the days gone by. The music of the laughing lip, the lustre of the eye; The games we played together on the kindergarten ring: • Fhe friends we made, the fun we had in doing everything; Oh those were happy-hearted days, and we leave them with a sigh, And thank the fates that gave to us those days gone by! NCE there was a woman who was called Miss Harbour. She was frying a pan cake for the children of her kindergarten flock. It was a pancake of knowledge, and there it lay in the pan bubbling and frizzling so thick and good that it was a delight to look at. The children stood around about, all awaiting their share. Finally, the pancake, fearing for its life, rolled out of the pan with a great llip-llop. through the door, and down the hill. “Hello! stop. Pancake!” cried Miss Harbour and all the children; but the pancake only rolled on all the faster. Finally, it met Vera, schoolward bound, armed with a pile of books. “Ah, bide a bit. pretty Pancake,” she cried; and. reaching for it. she stubbed her toe and fell sprawling—books scattered to the four winds. The pancake rolled on, only to meet Lois. Ruth Hoi.i.iday. THE PANCAKE OF KNOWLEDGE40 G I TC H E G V M F. E “Good-day,” cried the pancake. “Let me cat you,” cried Lois; and, with pointed toe, sht. started daintily in pursuit; but on and on sped the pancake till it met Hess. "Stop, pretty Pancake!" cried she; but the pancake kept going, while Hess, hand on aching head, and hot water bottle firmly in hand, gave chase. On rolled the pancake to Kdna, who sweetly called, “Good morning." and let it roll on. „ Soon, it met Evelyn. “Ah, pretty Pancake, not so fast; stop and let me eat you. "No.” said the pancake; and, with this, Evelyn thought cheerfully, " This far surpasses a daily walk to the Dewey when I consider reducing," and she sped toward it. On its way, the pancake met Regina. She quickly caught the rhythm, and played for the pancake to continue its rolling. Not far did it go so peacefully, however; for soon it met Catherine, who greeted it with a mighty slap on the back, which weakened the poor pancake so that, when it met Ruth IL, the sight made her turn with a giggle to Stanley, and let it go lamely on. Luckily for the pancake, it chanced to meet Esther, who, with her ever-ready liniment, rubbed it down well; and, with renewed vigor, the pancake journeyed on. Ear down the road, it espied a small hill, and, trusting to its strength, rolled directly over with little effort. Sad to relate, the hill proved to be Lauretta, who picked herself up and was glad to see knowledge pass with so little damage to her. In the distance, the pancake again saw a figure to alarm it; but fear was groundless; for it was Nora, with her contract in her hand. On and on it rolled; hut turn and speed were renewed when Marian, on seeing it. dashed wildly after, calling, "Just a bite for Hilly." During the chase, a voice strangely similar to that of Gladys was heard, saying. “If you get it, give it to me." Just then, the pancake, coming to a turn in the road, met Lillian, who. vainly attempting to seize it. tossed her head, "changed her course." ami fox-trotted away. After the turn in the road, the pancake chanced upon Arlene, holding her left hand to the sunlight. “Good-day,” cried the pancake. “1 11 run away from you, too": hut Arlene, with perspiring brow, gave chase, only to drop exhausted by the wayside. Here she found herself beside Hernice H., gazing mournfully after the pancake. “Careful, Arlene—your nerves. 1 didn’t even run for it. 1 knew it was useless, and you're no ill in how 1 wanted it." she sighed. Not far from here, the pancake came upon Alice in a Studcbaker—not alone. “Aha!" she cried, “surely that pancake cannot outrun this," and, with a hurst of speed, the car shot after the pancake—only for a little way, however; for soon a new road called "Madison” opened, and the car swerved to regions unknown. Once again, the pancake grew happy in its freedom, and slackened its revolutions; hut now suddenly, from a dense wood at one side, issued sounds that caused it to shudder and roll faster than before. Ear on it sped, but still the sounds continued— Hernice Thomas, caroling and trilling to the very heavens. Soon, all was peaceful, and when a subdued whisper of entreaty came from behind, the pancake turned to view Mildred, softly tiptoeing after with outstretched hand. "Ah no,” said the pancake, and soon left her far behind. On the horizon, now appeared Myrtle, frantically waving her arms and calling shrilly, “Hi! hi there, I say! Oh. hi!" hut the pancake only answered, as he passed, "I am a pancake, ami I am called 'Knowledge,' not ’Hi,’ my child." ami on he went. Wonder all but overcame him as. seated by the roadside, Nell peacefully promised. “Eat you 1 never would, Pancake; only talk, talk, talk to me." The spot was inviting, and Nell so friendly; but to stop was fatal. There was nothing to do but go on, and go on he did—even past Miriam, who only threw up her hands and exclaimed. a !u Julicn Romieux. “C’est dommage!"—in the direction of two demure maids, Lilly and Nellie, walking hand in hand. They cast a fearful glance behind, and, on seeing the rolling pancake, fled in terror, followed hv Hilma, with her everpresent pan of fudge.41 G I T C II E G U M E E In its course, the pancake came upon Ruth C., hurrying “North”ward. She obligingly stepped aside, remarking gloomily as it passed. “Nobody’ll get it. anyway.” Small groups ahead made the pancake hesitate at going on; but it bravely rolled, and soon taunted Della with its cries. When her fruitless attempts at catching it brought the tears, Florence and Janet, ever forgetful of selves, in ready sympathy started in pursuit. They soon overtook Laura and Oveila, leisurely strolling together; and when they breathlessly explained about the pancake, heard only the words, “Well, why do you chase that ? We sha’n't worry about it,” as the two continued on their way. Soon, the pancake began to weary of its rolling and its pursuers. 'Lime and time again, it longed for rest, but always came one seeking it. Slower, slower, grew its movements, and narrower and more rocky grew its path. It looked behind, and beheld Vi. who only turned her head in disdain and let it pass unmolested. 'Flic pancake gave a relieved sigh, but little did it know the fate in store; for never had it met Melissa as it met her now. Roll away, it could not; Melissa ran faster. Taunt, it could not; Melissa was never silent. Weak and spent, it only knew it was being overtaken. On the brink of the stream of Density, it paused, uncertain—not so, Melissa. With a few steps, she was there—one mighty shove and splash, the pancake disappeared into the water. It sank and rose, only to hear sounds of vicious glee from the shore. As its last hopes were dissolving, on the opposite shore miraculously appeared Miss Harbour. She. wading straight through Density, seized the precious pancake, and. lifting it high and dry, placed it on the pleasant shore. Here she sat beside it, and, dealing out, portion by portion, awaited the weary followers, who, one by one, struggled up. and bestowed upon each her due share, in accordance with her hard-run race.

This work, by legislative enactment, is to be the full and fair equivalent of two years of a college course; and, in order that it may be, the Board of Normal School Regents has provided additional teachers and additional equipment at each of the normal schools, so that this college work may be given in a satisfactory manner. When the new Superior State Normal School is completed, the laboratory and library facilities for college work will be among the best in the country, according to President V. E. McCaskill. The correlation of the normal schools with the university makes it possible for a student to pass from the high school through the normal school to the junior year of the university without loss of time. The greatest advantage of the two years of college work in the normal school is that it brings college education nearer to the homes of the people of the state. Many students are able to live at or near their homes during half of their college course; thus, it is possible for the home to retain a more direct supervision over the lives of its young people, and for the young people to have that contact with the home which is so greatly to their advantage. A second advantage of the college course is the reduction in the cost of a college education. The establishment of the college courses in the normal schools makes it possible for many young people to obtain a college training who would otherwise be unable to do so. By reducing the cost of the first two years of a college course, the normal schools make it possible for many young people to gratify their ambition for a college preparation for life work. To secure more intimate relations between the faculty and students, so that stu G I T C H E G U M E E 43 dents may have the help and counsel which they so often need and desire, students, on entering school, are assigned to groups, at the head of which is a member of the faculty. Professor A. I). YVhealdon has been, and now is, in charge of the college course Early in the fall, President McCaskill called a meeting for each of the classes. Professor Whealdon presided as chairman for the college department. The following officers were chosen: Clifford Bischoff, president; George Nyquist, vice president: Charlotte Glynn, secretary; and Gladys Crawford, treasurer. Olive Shong and Bay R. Snyder were chosen for the social committee. On bebruary 17. the class enjoyed a sleighridc to the Mappv Home cottage, on Park Point. Dancing was the chief entertainment of the evening. Refreshments suitable to the occasion were served to the members. Several of the students who have attained honors during the year arc members of the college department. Morris Desmond was chosen as school orator. Stanley Anderson was honored with the presidency of the State Debating League. The following hoys from the college class arc on the football team: Roberts, Butler, Snyder, Wrohbcl, Olson, Russell, and Bischoff. The last three, with McLaren, arc also members of the basketball team. Miss Laura White, Clifford Bischoff, and David Roberts arc members of the Gitciie staff. 1 he members of the class appreciate the interest shown in their welfare by their chief adviser. Professor Whealdon, and the interest shown by all the other members of the faculty who have been instrumental in making the college course a success. Olive I. Shong, ’16.

There are one hundred thoroughly twentieth-century individuals in our class, each with a controlled rubberized steel backbone, and none, therefore, so unfortunate as to possess the sad substitute, a “cotton thread,” quoting one of our learned professors. In the L. S. Literary Society, we arc represented by a troop of twenty-five; in the Lyceum Debating Society, we number nine; in the Drama Study Club, seven of us do our work well. We were in the football squad and the basketball team, starring in both. We sing in the Hoys' and (iirls’ Glee Clubs, in which our sweet voices ever enthrall our listeners. We gave a party on the 12th of October. I()I4, at Crownhart Mall, and we played many ingenious games, devised by ourselves in committee. Downstairs in the gym, some of us rocked the heavy commonplace trot. As to class characteristics, our most marked are: (I) a profound deliberation, manifested especially in cur class meetings: (2) a keen and true scent for trouble. A few of the fairer sex arc superhuman in this trait (they must, however, bear the burden of its results) ; and (3) a facility in being not at all punctual, yet not too tardy, several young men herein excelling. To make a long story short, we constitute a resurrected Atlas, carrying the whole Normal on our shoulders. It is net weighty, for we are strong. IMAGINE, IF YOU CAN Getting out of teaching.

The Sophomores have been kept busy, and apparently interested, trying to understand the complexities of geometry, botany, literature, physics, and many other subjects. They have made up in the class-room what has been lacking in a social way. The class elected officers on the “general election day,” which is one of the red letter days at the Normal School. Under the supervision of Miss Schlcgcl, faculty adviser, they elected Edward Omernik president; Elizabeth Finch, vice president; Miron Morrill, secretary; and Evelyn McLaggan, treasurer. Ruth Kreinbring and Anton Omernik were selected as members of the social committee. Later, a second meeting was held, at which Miron Morrill was elected GlTCllK Gu.MRE editor, and Dulcic Geary, associate editor. We of the sophomore class hold out this hope to all in the first two years of Normal work who arc downhearted and discouraged: “Plug away! It may seem hard now, but during your third year you will begin to sec things in proper perspective, and you will then appreciate the opportunities which are yours at the good old Superior Normal School.” Blessings on thee, Sophomores, Care-free ones, with knowledge stored; With the brilliant ones, you boast; With fields of learning they liked most; With your roster growing fast, Fed by the pick from the Fresides’ class; With your strong, convincing ways Lighted up by knowledge’s rays; Proudly do we shake your hand; Blessings on your clever hand! In your manners, in your face, There exists a certain grace That will immortalize your class, Every lad and every buss; Unobtrusive knowledge store; Blessings on thee, Sophomore! Oh for school days, playful work Of students never known to shirk, Knowing well it counts for naught, Must be learned just as it’s taught By the faithful Faculty, They who eager arc to see How you grasp the problems put To you by them; or from some book How you daily stood to get Sociology from Gillctt; And how your views on life he set; How you learned of Greece and Rome From Miss Clark, right here at home; Where the hottest war was fought; Where the Roman slaves were bought. In Algebra you oft were wont A hoard of x, y, z’s to vaunt. How you learned the works and face Of Burns or Chaucer in his place! And with the laws of Physics coped, And got so well that Wyatt hoped His next year’s class as bright would he With Newton’s laws or Density. Thus their Sophomoric skill Adapts them to fair Learning’s will. Best of Life’s years! enjoy it more. Ere it passes. Sophomore!

It really is the only fitting name for such an energetic, early rising, and industrious class. I rue, we may get a little fresh with our elders at times; hut they understand us, and know that we arc over-anxious to learn and please. We were not able to do much socially, on account of being in the High School building; but we have all been good students and attended strictly to business. Next year, when we get into our new home, we expect to make a name and record for ourselves which will stand for all time to come. Watch the Class of 1918. W. L. J.

Dulcie Geary.51 Gitche Gum ee SUB-FRESHMEN “ '"V F few years and full of trouble,” may be said of the Sub-Freshman class; but it cannot always remain that way; for, some time in the future, it will be “of many years and full of trouble.” We have trouble because we arc young, inexperienced, and—oh well, we are “just green”! Therefore, we make a great many mistakes, as we do not know what is right and what is wrong. Oh come! cheer up! What’s the use of all this fretting, when we know that trouble is a necessary evil in this world? It is an educator. It is a promoter of greatness. Who ever heard of a George Washington, an Andrew Jackson, a Daniel Webster, an Abraham Lincoln, or—a Woodrow Wilson rising to his heights of greatness without trouble? We arc having our trouble now, so that greatness will come all the earlier in our lives. Soon after the beginning of the school year, we held our election under the supervision of Miss Clark. We elected Marie McNally president (we arc not going to tell whom we elected for vice president); Sophie Wallcy, secretary; and William Pryor, treasurer. However, at the end of the first semester, our president left us to enter the High School. We wonder why? We then elected Lloyd Grover president, and Norma Foiscy vice president. Previous to this time, we had had (or didn’t have— which?) a Sophomore for vice president. There—we’ve done exactly what we said we were not going to do; but, as long as we’ve told, we should like to know if the joke was on the Sophomores or the Sub-Freshmen. Paul A.

As we’re pausing by this gateway, thinking fondly of the past. We feel, alas! these years together we have traveled all too fast. A short time hack, that day in Normal when began our brief career— Day when first we learned new faces, what to do, and what to fear. Went bewildered to queer classes, listened to each classmate’s name. Found that all, as well as we, were curious strangers nt the game. Back through vistas, sec we pleasures, trouble, laughter, song, and toil— Toil, when we spent studious evenings, burning oft the midnight oil; Sec again those days of gladness and those hours of tedious work; We recall our wayward fancies, times when we were wont to shirk, And the dreaded practice teaching, countless plans we had to write— All arc fair now, sweetly blended, seen through memory’s softened light. Though we’ll miss them, they arc over—days in Normal now so dear, We must pass on through the doorway, souls a-thrill with hope and fear; For out yonder, in the open, stands the world with outstretched hand. Calling to us through the portals to come out and join the hand Of workers in the world of service, and with eager hands we go To humbly help in human progress, some to reap, but all to sow. Prize Story.] THEIR GAR JACK HI wood and his wife finally decided to get a “car.” Of course, they only had Jack’s salary to depend on: but they finally figured it out, how they could spare enough to buy a car and keep it going. 'Hicy set the mark at one thousand dollars; but. though they economized harder than ever, it seemed harder to save than it had been to get out of debt during the preceding years. When their bank account had reached the two-hundrcd-dollar mark, they began to look for advertisements for secondhand cars; and, when it reached three hundred dollars, they decided to get one immediately, as it would take too long to save a thousand dollars. So, when El wood reached his office the next day, he stated that lie was financially in shape to get a “car.” “Street car, box car, or hand car?” inquired Conley, the chief bookkeeper. Jack ignored him. “Going to buy a second-hand machine?” asked the cashier. “I am going to buy a ‘used machine,’ ” corrected Jack, which brought a laugh53 G I T C H E GUMEE from the cashier that hurt some. However, the next morning, Jack found an “ad” which suited him, and he decided to look “the exceptional bargain” up. He finally found the place, and was about to leave, as the car did not suit him at all, when the salesman caught him. “Looking for a car, brother?” asked the salesman. “Why, yes,” replied Jack. "Well, here she is,” said the salesman. “Isn’t she a beauty of a little boat? There is not another ’bus in town which has half the style or speed; and, as for strength, she will carry the entire town up a ninety per cent, grade. Never mind the price; because I’ll make it so cheap you will be ashamed to refuse it. All I want to know is, if you really want a car. If you do, consider the car yours. It is my own special car, and I would not think of selling it, but I have just received word that my father is dead out East, and this is the only way I can raise money to get to his funeral. I’ll be back in a week or so, and, if you do not like the car, why, I will buy it back at a considerable gain to you. Jump in, and we’ll float around the block in her.” Jack was dazed; but, before he could think, lie was shoved into the car, and the salesman ran in front to start the engine. After cranking furiously for a few minutes without results, lie mopped his face and sat down to rest. “She usually goes by turning her over,” lie said, “but, I guess. I ought to get the magneto recharged. The death of my father has worried me so that I have forgotten all about it; but a dollar will make it right.” He then readjusted the throttle and went back to the crank. 'Hu's time, he was successful, and the engine started with a bang that very nearly threw Jack out of the car. 'Hie salesman jumped in, threw the clutch in with a crash, and the old automobile roared out of the door with more noise than a Vanderbilt cup-racer. The machine went around the block with a speed of about ten miles an hour, but it made so much noise that Jack thought he was making forty-five. They got around the block without accident, and, when the motor stopped running, it was so quiet that Jack’s cars hurt. "A little oil,” began the salesman, “and she won’t make no more noise than a watch.” He looked at the runabout with glowing enthusiasm, and Jack soon became imbued with tbe same spirit. “How much do you really think I want for the car?” began tbe salesman again; and, without giving Jack a chance to reply, lie continued, “about five hundred dollars would be dirt cheap, and at that you arc getting the best car on the market. Jump in and run her around.” “Hut I can’t drive a car,” protested Jack. “Jump in, and I’ll show you,” said the salesman; and they were soon off again, with Jack at the wheel. The sensation of running the car himself proved Jack’s undoing; and, when the salesman cut his price to two hundred dollars, Jack drove the car home. • • ’ The next day, Jack could not keep his mind on his work. Always, he thought of the red car in his shed. He caught an early car home, and found his wife already dressed for the trial run. There was no time for supper, and Jack lost no time in getting to his runabout. He looked the car over, adjusted the mechanism till it suited54 G I T C H E GUMEE him, and then started to crank it. He had no idea that it cranked so hard; after five minutes, lie was "all in.” Meanwhile, his neighbors had begun to assemble, to sec how the new car worked. Jack worked feverishly but without results. "Is it a self-starter?” innocently inquired a little girl, perched on the fence. Jack gritted his teeth and threw the crank over for all lie was worth, and was rewarded by two explosions. This encouraged him, and, in a few minutes, something happened. Though he had been trying to start the engine for over an hour, lie very nearly fell over when it started. Mrs. El wood screamed, thinking her husband had been blown up; the children fell off the fence, and a neighbor two blocks away came running to stop the noise, as a member of his family was dangerously ill. Jack quickly recovered, and jumped in to hack the car out of the shed. He forgot to reverse, and, as a result, he knocked the hoards off the back of the shed. 'Ellis killed the engine, so lie had to start cranking again. He got it started, and fearlessly climbed in again. This time, lie backed with a vengeance, very nearly running over half a dozen people gathered about the shed’s door, and stopping only three inches from the back of his house. He congratulated himself on getting the car stopped in time, though lie would not have eared at all if lie had run over half a dozen of his select audience. He proceeded to go forward again, and would have succeeded, had not the clothesline caught him under the chin. Jack set the emergency-brake in time, which stopped the car so suddenly that his wife Hew on top of the engine. He started it again, however, and this time lie forgot the steering gear, with the result that lie ran into the fence, breaking his radiator. Jack was glad that the people fled, because this gave him a little peace. Quickly, he reversed the engine and shot across the yard to the opposite fence. The audience, seeing him coming, did not wait for the crash, hut fled in all directions. By this time, the yard was so full of smoke that Jack waited for it to blow away. It was getting dark, however; and, as the car had no lights, Jack decided to quit for the night. Accordingly, lie started the engine again and made for the shed. It was so dark that lie missed the door, broke one of the props, and brought the flimsy roof down on himself with a crash. His wife screamed, for the fiftieth time that night; but Jack crawled out unhurt. The next day, he was up at four and repaired the roof in time to get to work. He was so stiff, however, that lie could hardly move, and his spirits were somewhat depressed. About noon, his wife called him up, saying a friend had called and had told her all the things which were needed on the car. The repairs amounted to very nearly a hundred dollars. That night, lie bought a pair of lights and went home to try the car again. He was surprised to find an officer and another gentleman waiting. They quickly told him that the car had been stolen, the previous week, from this gentleman, who lived in a neighboring village. Jack was glad to learn that this gentleman wanted his car again. He bought the lights and gave Jack a reward of twenty-five dollars for the recovery of the car. That night, Jack ate a hearty supper, and thereafter, when he or his wife referred to "a car,” they meant “the yellow traction car” which has a self-starter.

To honor our own -word as if it were our God’s.' ” THIS is the oath of membership of the Drama Study Club, of which there arc forty resident and over one hundred non-resident members. Although membership is not based entirely on scholarship, many of the scholastic honors of the school have been won by Drama Study Club girls. Pile attitude of this group is such that it requires every individual to develop her talents for the benefit of the school. Members are not chosen because of attainments, but because of possibilities of attainments; and every girl feels her responsibility for the conduct, scholarship, and general welfare of every other member. The girls work in this small group, not with any idea of exclusiveness, but because more effective work can be done. It is their desire that other equally congenial groups of girls may gradually form themselves into similar clubs. With this idea in mind, the Drama Study Club girls attended the first meeting of the new Literary Society this year, and have been among the most faithful members of the Young Women’s Christian Association. The regular meetings are devoted to the reading of modern plays, the selection of which is largely guided by the recommendations of the National Drama League. The following plays have been read this year: “The Flower Shop.’’ “Nathan Hale,.....Pile Great Divide,” “Disraeli,” “Potash and Perl mutter,......Phe Doll’s House,” “The Case of Becky,” “Justice,” “To-morrow,” and “'Phe Typhoon.”60 G i t c m e Gumee The club has produced, this year, two plays: “The Land of the Heart’s Desire,” by W. II. Yeats, and “Place aux Dantes.” It is the intention next year to co-operate with the Library Commission, so that many plays will he read aloud by groups of girls. On the 16th of April, the girls, as a club, made their first public appearance, in a carnival. The following program was given: 1. “The Land of the Heart’s Desire...............................IF. B.

At the present writing, the girls arc engaged in preparations for their annual commencement week event, which will he in the nature of a reunion. It is the desire of every member of the club to have this reunion an event that will long be remembered by those who attend it.MIXED CHORUS SOCIAL SCIENCE CLUB OFFICERS Charles Cadigan....................................................President Morris Desmond................................................Vice President Beatrice Gillis..........................................Secretary-Treasurer FOR the purpose of stimulating an interest in Economics, Sociology, Civics, and History (American), the Social Science Club was established in the school in 19 Id. Many notable addresses and lectures were given before the club last year, and it lias been the aim of the organization to continue the good work this year. The most notable address delivered before the society this year was that given by Professor Paul Ncystrom, of the political science department of the University of Minnesota. Plans arc now under way for a scries of lectures to be delivered before the club by Carl Russell Fish, of the history department of the University of Wisconsin, and other prominent men interested in the political sciences. 'Phe Social Science Club is very proud of the fact that they were the originators of the agricultural institutes which arc now being held annually in Superior for the benefit of the farmers of Douglas County.INTER-NORMAL DEBATE FOR the third time in its history, the Superior Normal School will this year enter into a debate with another state normal. The normal schools in the southern part of the state have been holding inter-normal debates for some time past, but this will he Superior’s first attempt in recent years. In the early part of last winter, a challenge to debate was received from the students of the River Falls Normal School. The matter was taken up in the Lyceum Debating Society, and it was decided to accept the challenge. Arrangements for the debate were well under way when the old Normal school building went up in smoke. The River Falls students were informed that it would be impossible to hold the debate that year, but that another year the matter might be considered again. Acting on these advices, the River Falls students again challenged the Superior Normal School to debate this year. The challenge was presented to the members of the Lyceum Debating Society and other students interested, and it was decided to accept the challenge. The River Falls people submitted, as a tentative question, the increase of the army and navy. A call was issued by Professor Palmer for all who aspired to make the debating team to prepare for a preliminary debate on the question, “Resolved, That the United States should materially increase her military ami naval forces.” Six young men re; sponded, and the preliminary debate was held on the evening of February 26. 'Flic judges were Professor J. A. Williams, Professor J. H. Jordan, of the High school, and Mr. W. P. Crawford. Henry S. Blombcrg, Miron A. Morrill, and Fdward F. Omcr-nik were selected bv the judges to represent the school in the inter-normal debate. Mr. Blombcrg, the first speaker, is a high school graduate who came to us from McGregor, Minnesota, last fall. He is a junior in the Fnglish course. Mr. Morrill, the second speaker, is a home-grown product, having gone to the Normal school all his school life, first in the training department, then “upstairs.” He is a sophomore in the Latin course. Mr. Omernik, the third speaker, is one of the celebrated Omernik brothers. He came to us from Birch Island, Wisconsin, and is now a sophomore in the Knglish course, being president of the sophomore class. The big debate will be held on the evening of 'l'hursday, May 20, at River Falls. T he question is, “Resolved, That the United States should inaugurate a definite movement toward military and naval armament on a larger scale.” Tlie judges arc being selected from a list of university and college men submitted by Superior, and a fair decision is assured. 'The local team has been coached by Professor G. M. Palmer, the head of the Fnglish department, who has had a great deal of experience as a debating coach, at the Academy of the University of Illinois and at the University of Montana. At the latter school, Mr. Palmer lost but one debate during the whole time lie was there. All the indications arc that the contest will Ik close ami well-fought, and. with the competent judges who arc being selected, the best team will win. 'Flic Superior hoys recognize the fact that they are pitted against a school which has had much experience in debating, and as a result has experienced debaters; but, nevertheless, they intend to give River Falls a run for the money.girls’ literary societyG ITCHE G U MEK 65 GIRLS’ LITERARY SOCIETY The Lambda Sigma Literary Society officers for the year 1914-15: President Vice President Secretary and 'Treasurer First Semester .

'The purpose of this organization is to give its members a love and appreciation for the best in American literature. During the first part of the year, the meetings were held in the High School every other Monday. The place of meeting was later changed to Crownhart Hall. 'The programs were arranged by a committee selected for that purpose by the president. Each program was given to one eminent American author, and consisted of a study of his life and works; and such of his poems as have been set to music were Mae Michaud. sung.66 G I TCHE GUMEF LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS ON the 28th «f last June, a man and woman were struck down in a little hill town in Bosnia. Out of this incident, there has been precipitated a whirlwind of war which has swept into its vortex peoples df every race, color, and degree of civilization. 'llicrc is not a shore in the far south seas, there is not an island in the lone Pacific, that has not felt the dread undertow of Europe’s upheaval. Even we of America, who have no part in the struggle, have been affected. It has paralyzed our financial system, cut down our government revenues, imposed war taxes upon us, unbalanced our trade, thrown hundreds of thousands out of work, and caused irreparable loss, disappointment, and misery. As to the responsibility for the outbreak of this war, opinions differ; and not the least pathetic thing we hear is the insistence by each country involved that the war was forced upon it, and that it is fighting for national existence. To the unbiased mind, however, it must occur that the real origin of the tragedy lies much deeper than any immediate provocation; and the effort to fix the entire blame upon any one nation, or upon any one man, is folly. It is not so much an insanity which has seized on one nation as a just retribution which has overtaken all. For half a century, the powers of Europe have been involved in negotiations so twisted and deceitful, and in preparations so incriminating, that there could have been no other issue than this apparently unin-terprctablc war. Out of a mistaken philosophy, has come this bloodshed; as the result of a false governmental theory, has fallen this scourge upon Europe. In the minds of European rulers, the doctrine of armed force has held sway over all others. Armed force is the only arbiter the nations of Europe know; and, as a consequence, that continent has become a vast military encampment of tax-ridden nations in arms. Even in times of peace, the nations of Europe arc in a state of smouldering antagonism and mutual distrust. They act accordingly. The determination of Germany to have the largest army was matched by the determination of Great Britain to dominate the sea. The increased German military budget was the answer to the increased term of military service in France. Peace between Russia and Austria has long hung on the slender thread of a precarious adjustment in the Balkans, where both aspire to dominate. The spirit which prompted the violation of Belgian neutrality is not confined to Germany alone. It has been evident in times past in all the leading nations of Europe, and is a spirit born of the ancient times when men worshiped the god of war. It is a spirit kept alive and developed by living in a state of mutual fear and distrust of one’s neighbors, and in constant preparation for war. It is a spirit inseparable from the gospels which appear foremost in the history of those nations: the gospel that might makes right; that small nations have no rights which great nations are bound to respect; and that the upbuilding of one nation can only be accomplished by the pulling down of another nation; the gospel of armed conquest, which sneers at treaties and throws international morality to the winds. In contrast to these doctrines, stands the ideal of our American civilization. As far back as 1823, the difference was recognized. Thomas Jefferson said of Europe: “Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war. All their energies arc expended in the destruction of the labor, the property, and67 G I T C II E GUME K :1k lives of their people." Europe has wanted to rule other people, and its method has been force; America has desired to have all people rule themselves, and its method has been education. Europe has developed an autocracy based upon force; America has built a democracy based upon friendship. Europe has labored to increase the number of her subjects; America has worked to add to her number of friends. Europe has been seeking more colonies to govern; America has been patiently educating such people as have accidentally fallen into her control, to rule themselves. She has already restored self-government to the Cubans, according to history an example uncqualcd for disinterested service. During the Boxer trouble, it was the United States who upheld the integrity of helpless China, when the land-hungry nations of Europe hung over her like vultures and threatened her dismemberment. It was the United States, which, at that time, turned back the ten million dollars indemnity to which it was entitled, and insisted on its use for the education of Chinese children. This country’s policy in the Philippines has been marked by the same high consideration for humanitarian principles. More has been done for the civilization of the inhabitants of the Philippines in the fourteen years of American occupancy than in the centuries of Spanish rule. The United States has refused to be drawn into a war of conquest in Mexico, but has patiently done her best to help the Mexicans on their way toward a higher type of self-government. She has lived on terms of friendship with Canada, so that there has been no necessity for a gun or a fort on the three thousand miles of intervening frontier. America, by these acts of justice and friendship, has put herself on record as a nation to be trusted to put honor above expediency in its dealings with the weaker powers of the earth. This is a propitious moment. Upon Europe, for centuries, has rested the burden of civilization. Now, because of the defect in its makeup, the inevitable result of persistent and intense armament, Europe has weakened and thrown down its load. In the terrific noise and shock of war. all that was formerly held valuable sinks into obscurity. It is said that it is a greater thing to build a city than to bombard it, to plough a field than to trample it, to serve mankind than to conquer it. Yet, in this hour, trenches and shrapnel, siege-guns and forts, marching and charging, seizing and resisting, seem to he real and worthy; these seem to be men’s work in life; while delicate experiments in the laboratory, new ideas on sanitation, schools, and the problems of our cities, or the careful planning of reforms in our social and political institutions, seem to be petty and useless. Who in Europe cares to paint a picture now, or to write any poetry but war poetry? who cares to suggest a labor reform or plan a new invention? It seems like fiddling while Rome burns. What is a scientist, an artist, an editor, or inventor, compared to a regiment of infantry, or even a Krupp siege-gun? Without a murmur, schools and colleges are converted into barracks, and the leader in education becomes press-agent for the general staff. Without a murmur, the laboratories of Europe arc commandeered as hospitals; thousands of unfinished experiments abandoned, their secrets locked in the brains of men either dead or digging trenches on the plains of Poland or in Northern France. And here we stand, we of America, facing the colossal failure of Europe. Mankind now looks to America to take up the burden. It recognizes that in the United States is vested the great power of the world—a power which rests not in the number of our battleships nor in the size of our army, hut in the moral power of our people, and in the vigor of our democratic institutions. It has seen on the pages of our history68 G I T C H E G U M E E that this country loves justice, truth, and right, and that the judgments of its common people arc, in the long run, profoundly wise; that their judgment is not swayed by entangling alliances nor ententes, nor by the desire for conquest and expansion at the cost of other nations, nor by the blasphemous doctrine of Napoleon that God is on the side possessing the heaviest artillery. We have come at last to see, that, if the march of civilization is to go on, it must be under the banner of peace, carried by soldiers whose hands arc free from brothers’ blood. “The mills of the gods grind slowly”; it has taken us cons to learn that “he that rulcth his spirit is greater than he that taketh a city.” Hut the twilight of the gods of war is upon us. This war will be the last in Europe for many a day—perhaps forever. Even public opinion across the water is vaguely hoping that the great continental conflict will mark the beginning of a new era, and that out of the ruin and desolation will be horn a new world, a world of free nationalities and of righteous democracies, in which there will be no supremacy or servitude, no master allowed on land, and no mistress needed on the sea. Many arc hoping that this war will be ended by a congress of all the powers, whose just agreement shall make a recurrence of present events impossible; that the ground will be cleared by a definite repudiation of militarism as the governing factor in the relations of states; that room will be found and kept for the independent existence and the free development of smaller nationalities; that no transfer of territory in Europe in the future will be made without the consent of the people, fairly and freely ascertained by an international authority. This is no Utopian dream. In the not remote future, there will be a United States of Europe. The day is not far away when we shall see upon the high seas, not the fleets of Great Hritain nor of Germany, nor those of Russia, France, nor Japan, but an international fleet patroling the seas, and performing the police duties of an international tribunal, composed of representatives of all the nations. From this moment, then, we must begin to create a conscience in accord with these hoped-for results. Public opinion must be aroused in an unprecedented degree. Against the forces of revenge, cupidity, skepticism, and fatigue, that have hitherto supported the intolerable martyrdom of Europe, must be invoked the new spirit of co-operation, reason, and divine common sense. Because we have maintained, throughout, our policy of strict neutrality, it is not unreasonable to expect that we shall be called upon to act as peacemakers. To the neutral countries, the conscience of mankind is now looking for its expression. I have no doubt that from America will come the appeal, “Lay down your arms.” Before this country, is the greatest opportunity that has ever confronted a nation; for the dazzling predominance and prestige gained by making peace for a world at war will far overshadow that of a world-empire won by the sword. When exhaustion brings this war to a close, and the wounds of one nation arc hound by another, the bitterness of hatred and the greed for gain will be weakened, too. The sacrifice has been the sacrifice of the cross, repeated a hundred thousand times; the cost has been the cry of Gethsemanc wrung from millions of helpless lips; but, if out of the existing chaos there appears upon the horizon that new world, that long-sought era in which there shall he peace among nations as long as those nations endure, then we shall say that, although the sacrifice was tremendous, it was not in vain.

THE athletics this year cannot be glimpsed and credit given where credit is due by carelessly comparing the relative scores of the respective games played at home and abroad. This was a year in which the boys who so valiantly defended the honor of the orange and black not only had to contend with teams of unusual strength, but had to overcome great difficulties and make personal sacrifices in order to find time in which they could practice. This was caused by the burning of the old building last year. When school opened last September, a special call was made for the athletes to meet and discuss athletics for the coming year. The call was enthusiastically responded to, and three of last year’s championship team were found to be amongst the boys, namely, “Vet” Roberts, “Bill” Williams, and George Butler. 'Phis was very encouraging, and, led by Professor Smith, a schedule and a plan were outlined for the year, 'l'his was followed faultlessly, and, in spite of defeat, injury to many of the players, and the awkward hour of practice, the boys gamely went through a season of football, earning for themselves a niche in the "hall of fame” of the Normal School by their aggressive spirit and a smile in the hour of defeat. The season opened with a victory over the Nelson Dewey High School by an overwhelming score; and then followed a defeat bv a small score by the River Falls State Normal, who were later to he the Northern Conference champions. Northland College, La Crosse and Stevens Point Normals followed, victory being ours in the first game, and defeat in the latter two. To Coach Dr. David August must be given praise for his advice and encouraging efforts throughout the entire season. At the close of the season, heavy black sweaters were given the boys for their work. They were obtained through the efforts of President McCaskill, who was behind the team with his cvcr-ready smiles and encouragement.

BASKL I HALL labored under the same difficulties as did football, and was not started until the season was well advanced beyond Christmas, and not until the Hiy:h School offered the use of their gym, was one obtained. Principal Edward Conley was secured as coach, and, although he did not get the team until the season was well along, he rounded out an aggregation which won the “Twin Ports” championship. 'Flic boys worked hard and faithfully, and, although defeated in the earlier games of the season, by a gameness and revival of championship form brought the season to a triumphant end. Conference games with the other state normals were not indulged in, a schedule not having been made out with them, as it was uncertain whether the orange and black would have a team because of the lack of a gymnasium in which to practice. The final triumph came in the last game of the season, which was played with the Cathedral High School of Duluth. 'Phis game was carefully prepared for, as the Cathedrals were the acknowledged champions of the “Twin Ports,” having defeated those teams which had previously defeated our boys in the earlier part of the season. 'l'hc game was played in the Cathedral gymnasium at Duluth, and was well attended by both schools. Victory lay with either side during the entire game, neither team having any more than a two-point lead over the other at any time, 'l'hc scheduled game closed with the score 23 to 23, with both teams fighting gamely for the additional point. By mutual agreement, it was agreed to play an extra five minutes, 'l'hc game continued with the ball rolling dangerously on the rim of either basket several times. Just before the close of the five minutes, Schneider, left forward for our boys, dropped the ball into the basket for the final two points, which gave us victory and the “Twin Ports” championship. Jersey basketball sweaters were given the following athletes: Olson and Schneider, forwards; Jackson, center; Russell, Thorpe, and Hischoff, guards; McClaren and Blomberg. Professor Smith very ably acted as manager of the team, and will be long remembered.

The last hour had been a busy one, both for the officers of the gigantic steamer and for the passengers themselves. Customs officers had been here and there, rilling the baggage of every one, apologizing to some, sharp to others, and content with none. The harassed officers were continually called into colloquy with them, after which consultations they dashed away again to plunge into and through the personal belongings of some other poor passenger, continually asking questions and not even waiting for answers. From stem to stern of the boat, from the upper first-class decks down to the steerage, had these annoying officers pursued their devastating way. None had escaped. but at last the Lusitania was afloat, and the passengers composed themselves for their long trip as the boat steamed majestically on its voyage to New York. Let us descend at once to the lower decks of the steamer, until we come to the steerage. Here, indeed, is an atmosphere of depression, in contrast to that brighter one of the upper decks. None of the happy, expectant faces arc seen here; but a .look of resolution is upon the countenances of all, as if they realize that they arc launching themselves upon a new venture in life, a venture into parts unknown, in a land of hoped-for opportunities. One felt the gloom of the steerage as soon as he entered. The people seemed of every nationality and unable or unwilling to converse with one another. Some were walking about, as if in deep contemplation, others were squatted in convenient spots, as if waiting, and not seeming to care what happened. There was an utter lack of comradeship here. To the left, in a far corner, was a young Italian who interested me, if for nothing else than that he seemed more despondent and even less sociable than the rest. He was plainly a foreigner, and acted much as if this was his first trip across. His face attracted me, not only because of its present look of uncertainty anti wonderment, but because it had a more intelligent cast than had those of his companions in the steerage. A keenness was plainly stamped in his countenance. He seemed of them and yet not of them. He sat in this far corner, along with many of his co-passengers, despondent and aloof, his grips and a large square canvas valise beside him. He looked up occasionally at those about him, and then down again, as if expecting to find a friendly face among them; but, if any tried to engage him in conversation, he seemed to avoid them. He offered to take part in none of the desultory conversation started now and then around him, but remained in a position of stoical silence and aloofness. He aroused my interest at once. As the days passed upon the steamer, and I was frequently down in the steerage, I got to looking for this young Italian as soon as I entered. He was much like the rest of them, and then again he was not. A certain manner of his of glancing up, and the look with which he greeted one on entering the steerage, impressed itself upon me. No, he was not the usual immigrant. He was easily found, either sitting down or slowly walking about, but always in seeing distance of that resting place of his in the corner, as if in fear some one would steal his place in it. Near the end of the voyage, I came into the steerage, one day, and found him squatting in his usual position, bis valise open, and he munching away at his lunch. I noticed a fellow passenger of his come up and attempt to enter into conversation; but I could easily sec that the enterprising passenger was not very successful. As the other passed on, I thought I saw for a moment a keen smile lighten up his countenance, and not for the first time I assured myself that this fellow was more than he seemed. I casually approached, and looked around, as was my custom, and stopped nearG ITCH 15 GUMBK mmiMii 81 this young Italian; but lie seemed unaware of my presence. lie did not look up, but continued eating his lunch. II is valise was open and displayed the eatables common to the steerage passengers and especially typical of his race. There were fruits of many kinds, nuts, and a large bottle of wine, and I noticed two large bottles of red stuffed olives, so common in Italy and so much enjoyed by Italians. These were packed in at one end of the valise, together with one which had seemingly been opened and emptied. The young Italian seemed to be stoically enjoying his repast, and I ventured to engage him in conversation. Not knowing any Italian. I addressed him in Knglish. but received only a negative shake of the head. 1 persevered, but to no avail, getting nothing except a listless nod, although he offered me, one after the other, everything he had in the valise, from the grapes to the wine. I imagined lie offered me the olives with some hesitation, but could see no reason or intent in this. I picked up one of the bottles of olives and looked curiously at it, not for any particular reason, but more to cover my attempt to engage him in conversation. A suspicious glance from his eyes impressed itself on me, and 1 wondered at it. Me seemed rather anxious, and even angered, and 1 put the bottle back. At once, he seemed mollified, and pulled out his jack-knife, scraped the red wax from around the cork, poured out the juice, and offered me the bottle. I did not care for olives, but took a couple, noticing, at the same time, the intent look lie bent upon me, and passed on, wondering why I could not overcome my curiosity and growing suspicion of this man. In the course of the last day at sea, I was in the steerage stcvcral times, and I could not rid myself of the idea that this fellow was suspiciously following me with his eyes. I would glance up quickly, but could never catch him, lie seemingly being intent upon something else or squatting in his usual despondent attitude. So time passed, and at last we caught sight of the Goddess of Liberty statue in New York harbor. Most of the passengers were out upon the decks and gazing shoreward, hut not so my young friend. He was as gloomy and aloof as ever. Me had packed up his belongings into a neat pile and seemed to be in readiness to get ashore as soon as the boat should touch the dock. About noon, the Lusitania pulled into the great dock at New York. All was instantly bustle and excitement. The steerage passengers were all in line, packed down with their grips and valises, and patiently awaiting their opportunity to get ashore. The last I saw of the young Italian was as he, amongst hundreds of others, passed down the gang-plank and out upon the dock only to be seized by the customs officers, his belongings, grips, valises and all, rummaged over and passed upon. My curiosity was not satisfied. At a safe distance, I followed him. He neither hurried nor lingered, but passed leisurely from the docks. Let it suffice the reader that I succeeded in keeping track of him, and, at last, toward evening, I found his haunt. After all fear of pursuit liatl vanished, he became a changed man. His step was clastic and confident, and had none of the uncertainty of the newcomer. He glanced behind at times, and smiled, and now his face had that keen glance that experienced men recognize. He had finally taken an castbound car, and alighted in an Italian district seemingly well-known to him, passed along a dark, narrow street and into a small, forbidden-looking tenement house. I cautiously approached, but it was fully an hour before I managed to look within. I found him seated at a table in a small room in this same house. Two empty bottles were standing on the table. In a pan before him were the contents of the two bottles of olives. Just as I caught sight of him, lie was in the act of squeezing the red center from one of the olives. Me threw this one aside and picked up another and squeezed it, and a large glittering diamond accompanied the red center of the olive. He put this in a glass containing several other gems, and counted each glittering stone. He then rose to his feet, went to the window, and looked far away in the direction where the Lusitania still lay, smiled, and heaved a long, satisfied sigh, and returned to his work.82 G I TCH K G U M E E OUR TWO PAGEANTS THE pupils of rhc Normal training school portrayed the awaken in £ of nature and the joy of mankind at the arrival of spring, by means of a festival given in the High School auditorium. The program consisted mostly of dances by costumed children, and much of the honor must go to Miss Marion Pierce, the physical director at the Normal, who planned the program and originated the dances. The program consisted of three parts: “Frolics of Nature," “Frolics of Man,” and “Dream of Spring.” The first two of these, with the exception of the “ Free Hearts,” were carried out by the younger children. The dance of the “Tree Hearts” was very beautiful, as well as typical of the art of the whole production. It was beautifully portrayed by five girls dressed in flowing costumes of the color of the tree. The remainder of the program was danced by beautifully costumed children, who did great credit to the persons by whom they had been so patiently and carefully trained. THE program: I—FROLICS OF NATURE. I. Joy of the Winds: (a) The North Wind (gray). (c) East Wind (pink). (b) West Wind (yellow). (d) South Wind (green). 2. Departure of Jack Frost when Sunbeams appear. 3. Coming of the Flowers. 4. Awakening of the 'Free, or the Dance of the Tree Hearts. 5. Tile Spirits of Spring, the Elves and the Fairies. Glee Club—“Summer”...................................................Wagner II—FROLICS OF MAN. 1. Tribute to the Sports of Childhood: (a) Ropes. (c) Hoops. (b) Ralls. (d) Soap Rubble’s. 2. 'Flic Gift of the Fairies to the Children. Their Dances. Ill—DREAMS OF SPRING. A most beautiful May pageant, made up of dances, songs, and pantomime, was given this spring by three hundred and fifty children and the members of the Normal kindergarten training class, under the direction of Miss Caroline Harbour and Miss May Hill, who were assisted by many interested people. File children of the different kindergartens represented: children dancing around an old English well; a fairy ring dance; a dance of little bunnies and wee children: a frolic of fisher and farmer lads and lassies; antics of Mother Goose children, of little chimney sweeps, of a group of court lords and ladies, as well as the dances of little flower children and spring buds, all of whom did honor to a Queen of the May upon her throne. We can not say enough for the beauty and success of the two festivals spoken of on this page. Each was a perfect production of its type, but of such different types that they can not be compared. It has been said truly that no other, productions of their quality have ever been seen in Superior.G I T c II E G U M E E 83 COMMENCEMENT EVENTS. 1915 Friday, April 9.

McCaskill. As Mrs. McCaskill had planned on a trip to Missouri, the reception was given earlier this year than usual. The rooms were beautifully decorated in pink ami white. Under the direction of Miss Curtis, the Girls’ Glee Club sang “Shoogy Shoo” and “Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes." After the Glee Club had been applauded, every one joined in singing the familiar school songs, which added to the gayety of the evening. With the usual enthusiasm, the Seniors gave their yell. The Seniors surely were the guests of honor. We take this opportunity of expressing our appreciation.84 G I T C H E G U M E E OUTLOOK FOR NEXT YEAR ME undergraduates of tlur Normal School arc looking forward with great pleasure to the next school year, for many reasons. Primarily, of course, because of the new building, which will he completed during the coming summer. In this building, we will once again have our own class-rooms, offices, and assembly room, and, what is of greater importance, will be able once more to start school with the regular eight-fifteen class. While being without a building of our own has been hard in many ways, we realize that the greatest hardship has been undergone by the High School people themselves: and we wish to thank Mr. Wade, the High School faculty, and the students for the kindly way in which they have always treated us. In the new building, next year, will be found, to the joy of a great many, a bright, cheerful club-room, in which Drama Study Club, Y. W. C. A., Literary Society, and other club meetings will be held. Plans arc now being made by some of these clubs to leave some picture, piece of furniture, or other article to help furnish the room. The old members of the Athletic Association arc planning big things for next year, also. They expect to reorganize immediately upon their return in the fall, and start practice on the new dormitory tennis courts. It is expected that they will be in fine condition for a tournament by the spring of the year.
