We, the Class of 1919, are going out into the cold, cold world with brave hearts and the desire to do. Altho we know we are a splendid class, we have made some mistakes; and we hope the under classmen who have watched ind admired us will profit by these mistakes and our good experiences. We wish all well and we say good-bye to this school, which holds many pleasant memories, with regret.

29JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS.
President .... WILLIAM GEBO Vice President - - HELEN ORVAL1)
Secretary and Treasurer - GERTRUDE WADE
At the first meeting of the Junior Class, which was called by Mr. Merrill in January, the class elected their officers for the year. These officers have proven their metal and have aided the Junior Class in pulling together for a successful year. A social committee consisting of Helen K. Murphy. Madeline Mclntcer, Edwin Nelson, Albert Butler and Ludwig Anderson was also elected at the first meeting. Soon after the first class party was planned for February twenty-first. Later Ernestine Boll and David Smith were chosen as class representatives for the Gitchc staff. The class closed their activities for the year with a party which was just as successful and well attended as their first one.Barbara Sherman seated at the little mahogany desk in her room wrote slowly and thoughtfully, pausing now and then to glance at an open letter lying near. As the end of an hour drew near she finished writing, folded the sheets of beautifully engraved pink paper, put them in an envelope and addressed it:
Mr. Jean Bouchaire,
5 Rue Maude 5 Saint Denis
(pres') Paris, France.
Barbara then picked up a calendar and carefully put a tiny check on a Wednesday which occurred just four weeks after the last check.
“Four weeks, then another letter for you Monsieur Jean. Do 1 write often enough ? Once a week, once every Wednesday! But poor little Tommy, how neglected he has been. Just a note now and then hoping he was safe and stating how busy I am.”
But now, after a year. Tommy was coining home again. A glorious Tommy, who had fought and fought, but who had finally been sent home disabled with a broken leg. His nurse had written while lie was in the hospital, that the leg had been badly crushed, that it would eventually be all right but would take a long time to mend. And he was coming that night. 11 is boat had arrived but would be held in quarantine until six that evening. He would then be free to drive out to her.
Barbara arose and walked over to her dressing table. She pieked up two pictures and smiled as she held them together for comparison.
“You Jean, decidedly French with your dark hair and eyes, and Tommy so American—light wavy hair and blue eyes. Both soldiers much alike, vet really how different!”
She carefully replaced the pictures and turned again to her desk. From a little drawer she took a handful of letters, then crossed the room, switched out the lights and went down stairs.
As she entered the large drawing room, Barbara saw her father sitting on the large beautiful davenport before the grate fire, reading a paper. The only light in the room came from the shaded lamp on the table just behind him and from the fire in the grate.
“Good evening, father, what’s the news?"
Mr. Sherman looked up quickly and smiled. He put the paper aside and affectionately drew his daughter down beside him.
“Where in the world does my little Bab keep herself lately? Is it still the Red Cross?”
"It certainly is. only much more. All day we’ve been making bandages, oh, just stacks of them and to-night there is to be that wonderful benefit party at Mrs. Reynolds’ new home, but of course I couldn’t think of going since we expect Tommy. Dear old Tommy, I wonder if lie’s changed? I’ve been so excited all day that I could hardly work.”
Mr. Sherman smiled and said:
»2“I sec by the paper that bis boat is in. He’ll have a lot to tell us Bab, and I admit I've been getting very anxious myself. Let’s see, it's just seven-thirty— well, lie ought to be here in an hour.”
“Oh. yes, in any hour anyway, unless lie has car trouble, so we’ll wait right here and I’ve brought down some letters that I thought you would like to hear parts of. You see Tommy and this Frenchman, Jean, arc very great friends, fought side by side. And, while Tommy was in Paris in the hospital, Jean was able to visit him when he was on leave. Well some way. Jean got mv address and wrote begging me to answer. So what could I do. I ask you, father? You see lie is a poor lonesome soldier, who has been fighting for four years, and so I sort of adopted him to see if I couldn’t cheer him up a bit.”
Barbara picked up one of the letters and said:
“Oh, this is a darling, do let me ready part of it. It was one of the first.”
" ‘Dear Miss Sherman—How delightfully surprised I was when the postmaster came this morning bring ing me a letter from my dear American friend. It was with very great pleasure that I learned that a nice young American girl was willing to accept to correspond with an humble French and alien ’Poilu.’ ’
“Poilu, Poilu, what a strange word. How do you suppose it’s pronounced, father?”
“Why, I haven’t the slightest idea, dear.”
“Well, never mind. I’ll go on.”
“‘It’s very kind of you to think, notwithstanding the great distance which separates your country from the battle-field, of the poor soldiers who arc fighting for the right cause. These arc not ungrateful to the affectionate testimonies that you and your numerous friends send to them. They arc willing to die to avoid you to know the German villanics and if they arc still fighting like lions, it is with the. only hope that after the battle, they’ll find some charming young lady, such as Miss Sherman, gay and smart, who will do their best so that the ‘Sammies’ should forget this awful war which has upset the world.
“’But that’s enough about war now isn't it? I’ll introduce me to you—Jean Bouchairc, actually corporal in the colonial artillery. In peace time somewhat explorer and commercial in Africa (Ivory coat) to.precise. Born in Paris, twenty-three years old, a great devil of six feet, American looking, very thin and shaved moustaches. I have black hair, brown eyes, black eve-brows, white skin and white teeth. He is not a very wicked boy and loves very much the little misses. I don’t sec anything else to add. Do I please you thus?
“ ‘Now, you asked me to tell you about my country, about this splendid France, which is the world’s home. What eulogy should be better than the one your own people coming over here to give to this country. It is only wonderful.
“ ‘My parents are living in St. Denis, a small place next to Paris, where I regularly spend my holidays. I love my home-very much because it stands between water and an immense wood and also because it is at so small a distance from Paris, (the light town).’
"Well, that’s enough of that one, but here’s another.
“‘Dear Barbara: I received two letters yesterday and the New York post
cards, of which I am very pleased. I did not know your city was so large, and I could not help laughing when I had a look at the high houses, what a marvelous observatory post it should be for the next war.
“ ’I wish I was your chum and you take me every opportunity you have for a ride in your car all around New York. How nice it would be, at least for me.
“ ‘My great pleasure when I go to Paris is to take a taxi and ride all around the city; of course, you'll be the chauffeur, and I want my place near the chauffeur.
Will I have it? But how to reach you and vour car? Can’t you send your car over? I'll put two wings on it and perhaps then I’ll be able to go over and see you. You must excuse me, dear Barbara, if I am not very serious to-day, but war is over, so of course your French ‘poilu’ would be the happiest boy in the world if he could only offer ‘a cup of chocolate’ to his American friend. I say ‘a cup of chocolate’ because we arc in a very small village (about handkerchief size) and there is an American tire canteen where they give chocolate.
“‘You asked me if I ever heard of Chicago? Yes, dear Barbara, and I was quite a young boy in the primary school, the teacher used to tell us stories about this great city. I heard of a mechanical engine—you take a pig (living), you put him in the opening of the machine, and when lie arrives at the machine’s ‘exit’ you’ve got sausage, bacon, all prepared; if you arc not satisfied with these sausages, you reput all of it in the machine through ’exit’ and when it reaches the ’opening’ you still get your pig (living). That's how I learned of the existence of a city called ‘Chicago.’
Mr. Sherman and Barbara laughed, and Barbara said:
"Fie is clever, don’t you think, father?”
"Yes, indeed, clever, but at times rather sentimental, Bab."
"But, would lie be French if he were not?”
"Well, I suppose not. But you arc tired, dear, and I’m afraid Tommy isn’t coming to-night. He will probably call first thing in the morning. Perhaps some trouble on the boat and lie doesn’t wish to call us late.”
“But, I’m sure he’ll come to-night. I do so wont to see him. Here, let me read just part of this letter, then I’ll go up to bed, for I am sleepy.”
"Well, just one more then.”
“AH right, here’s a good one.”
" ‘Dear Barabara—It’s with great pleasure that I acknowledge you of your nice letter which reached me in the heat of the battle. This note coming from so far, written by a lovely miss already dear to me, cheered me up. When I received it, I was sad, I felt lonesome, very lonesome amongst all my unwashed companions. To my great regret I could not see any charming miss, not a sister soul in whom to confide my distress, but just at that moment, I heard my name called and I rushed at once towards the happiness distributer, who gave me your letter. You see if you want to cheer me up, you’ll have to write very very often, but then I expect your good heart will not forget me.
" ‘How wonderful it is to live after four years spent in trenches, hearing the sound of the shells, working nights and days under rain and sometimes snow and seeing some good friends killed or wounded. I never knew the price of life before these happy days. I don’t think I can be unhappy any more after this war. My mother docs not know vet if I am still living and the letters I receive now show me how good it is to have such a kind mother. I hope to go home on leave very soon, but this time mother will not cry to see me going away again. There is no more danger since war is over.
" ‘I dream, dear Barbara, of an imaginary little girl who would love me but besides (when I am not dreaming) I do not believe a girl could love but me ! ! ! In my dreams, too, I see a girl who is fond of music just ns I am, but who knows it better than I. and is able to plav piano or any other instrument, so that when the war is all over. I’ll forget all the terrible things I have seen during these long years. Don’t you know such a girl? I would not be surprised to hear that you are looking very much like this girl, and when I get your photo. I’ll see. But I must close now, ns the postman is coming and night too.
“ ‘Praying you to accept the sweetest thoughts of your Jean.’ ”
81Barbara .stopped, she had curled up iu the big davenport and there she sat listlessly, staring at the lire dying out.
Mr. Sherman smiled fondly down on her. not wishing to be disturbed, but to be left alone with his treasure, for she was all he had. She was much like the beautiful young mother that bad been taken away from them fifteen years ago. Although Barbara was twnty. she was still a little girl to her father.
Her head fallen back against the cushions and she was asleep, but only for a moment. She woke with a start.
“Why father. I fell asleep, so 1 11 say good night now but you promise to let me know immediately if you hear from Tommy.”
Mr. Sherman promised. Then Barbara kissed her father and went upstairs.
Thursday brought the awful news to Barbara. On the boat the day before had not come Tommy, but news of his sudden death. The message did not state the cause. The shock had greatly affected Barbara, who had never before experienced the loss of a dear friend by death. Nor had she realized before how much she really eared for Tommy. She had'neglected him for the Frenchman. She could at least have written him. All this broke her heart. She wired her sympathies to Tommy’s only near relative a sister living in California; then spent tlie next few days wandering moddily around the big still house. Mr. Sherman was becoming alarmed at his daughter’s condition when word came from Jean, lie had been with Tommy when he died and was on his way to America. He would tell them all when he arrived.
The fact that Jean was coming did not thrill Barbara as she thought it would. No. Only was she anxious to see him so that he might tell her all about Tommy. Slowly the next few days passed. She thought she should die before the boat came in. But. at last it docked on a Wednesday, and was, as the other, held in quarantine. That evening she waited as she had before with her father in the long drawing room. She watched the clock. It was nine now. How slowly the minutes passed. Then a bell—far off in the house. She heard the bell. She paused a moment, then sprang to her feet and started to the door. It opened slowly.
But, it was not Jean. Could she be dreaming? No, it was not the Frenchman. but it was Tommy. The same old Tommy, smiling down upon her.
Barbara’s heart seemed to be in her throat. How could it be when Tommy was dead? She took a step backwards, then looked at her father who came hurrying towards them.
“Barbara! dear little Bab! what in the world is the matter?”
Yes. it was Tommy, she knew his voice. All doubt now left her and she flew to him.
As Mr. Sherman came up. Barbara heard him say:
“Welcome back. Tommy, my bov. How arc you and bow’s the leg?”
Barbara stepped away while the other two talked. How did her father know that Tommy was coming that night. A- hundred questions rushed to her mind that she could not answer. As she turned a scattering of small papers before the fire place attracted her attention. She went over and pickd one up. A letter! One of Jean’s letters. She picked up several more and they too were his letters. What did it mean? How did they come there? She looked at the dying coals in the grate, then at her gay colored evening dress. I.ike a flash the truth dawned on her. She had been dreaming. What a dream! So horrible, but then what was a dream? She laughed and laughed until her eyes grew moist.
Th two men started to her and Mr. Sherman said:
“Why Barbara, my dear, what is it?”
"Oh nothing, nothing, only do come over here and sit down. Sit right here please Tommv, right near where 1 can touch von, and then please talk and talk and talk!” (The end.) DOROTHY YORK.
88Do You Remember ®
—The day when Mr. Eldrich demonstrated that it could all he contained in a nut shell and incidentlv showed us how to take a hath in a soap dish?
—When there were many men in this school? (However conditions were somewhat congested—some of the girls were heard to remark that circulation might have been better).
—When .Mr. Palmer came home and we all tried on his helmet?
—Our hall room?—we mean the drill room—o dear no! we mean the S. A. T. C. room—no that’s not it—well you know what we mean!
—All those lovely fine Hue vacations? Emerson sure said something when lie wrote that "Essay on Compensation.’’
—oh girls, do you remember your practice teaching? And those horrible days when critics came and you hadn’t finished your plans?
We’re judging that these arc a few of the things you’ll never forget. Some you'll remember and shed a reminiscent tear over, some you’ll remember and laugh, but dear old pals, be they sad or funny—these things you will remember.L. D. C.—tl»WW JOMftiOV—

The Lyceum Debating Club has had one of the most successful years in the history of the club. It also is the only organization which can boast of the fact that "all of its members were in the United States Military Service.”
After the signing of the armistice and the discharges of some of its active members the club gave a magnificent banquet for its Alumnae at the Commercial Club. The banquet was held about the middle of December and was well attended. It was at this banquet that plans were laid for the erection of a tablet or a statute in honor of Lieut. Henry Hlomherg, an L. I). C. man who was killed in action in the Argonne Forest.
Early in February the club held an initiation for six new members.
On Feb. 24 the L. I). C. gave a banquet at the Y. M. C. A. in honor of Mr. Palmer, the club’s advisor, who had just returned from France. Goot cats were served, fine talks were given and every one had a very nice time.
At present there are plans for a party about the middle of April and another one later on.
The regular I.. I). C. year will close with the annual banquet early in June, for all L. 1). C. members, returned L. I). C. soldiers and sailors and the almnac.
The work that the L. I). C. does during the year consists of debates and discussions of the important topics of the day, and also parliamentary drill.

The purpose of the society is to establish a social unit so that the members of the society may learn to assume social responsibilities, may become better acquainted, and may make themselves an active force in the social life of the school. Also to work out some definite problem each year which shall aid in attaining such a purpose.
This year has been devoted to a study of the various forms of entertainment so that each member may learn to become an important factor in the social life of any community.
The membership of the society is limited to forty members.
The society has bad several enjoyable social meetings. Last fall the old members hiked over to the Point and spent a day at the Smith cottage.
Shortly afterward, an invitation party and banquet was given and new members were received into the society. The next feature was a toboggan party at the East End, which ended with a spread, music, dancing and games at the home of one of the members. Another interesting and enjoyable event was the hike to Hillings Park, and a general good time at th Boat Club.
One meeting was given over to fortune telling ns a means of entertainment. Several of the girls established their fame as fortune tellers by use of cards, tea leaves and by palm reading. Another meeting was devoted to the subject of dancing. Several new dances were taught by members on the program.
The members arc planning a "Kid Party” to be held in the near future, which will undoubtedly prove a success.
The members of the society feel that they have spent a most profitable and enjoyable year. Much of the success is due to the aid and inspiration given by Miss Thompson, the faculty advisor. She has won the admiration and good will of all the girls. A great deal of credit is also due to Miss Louise Friis for her never failing devotion to her duties as president of the society.
'llTHREE ARTS CLUB.The Three Arts Club will celebrate its fourth birthday September of this year. Although it is one of the younger organizations its enthusiastic spirit has secured for it a permanent place in the life of this school.
Originally the purpose of the club was to foster interest in the three fine arts; music, literature and dancing, and to promote the social life of the school. In-common with all similar organizations it has been greatly influenced by the serious events of the past four years.
This year after war conditions had been settled and the “flu” ban lifted the spirit of the former good times returned. The kindergarten room with the crackling fire has been the scene of many happy gatherings.

Altho' the entire club work of the school has been handicapped by “flu” vacations, we feel, that considering the like, the year I9I8-IJ) has been a successful and profitable one.
"The aims of this club arc three fold, to promote a closer union of friendship among the girls, to strive to be nobly mannered—for manners are not idle, but arc the fruit of a noble mind and loyal heart; to co-operate heartily in the study of life’s highest form of expression—literature of the drama.” This year we have worked especially hard on promoting "a closer union of friendship.” A new monthly program has been adopted and was found very successful. Two meetings a month were devoted to study of the drama, one to a social hour and one to business. We have found that the separation of study, business, and social work tends to greater efficiency in all.
As the oldest club of its kind in the school, we have worked particularly hard to improve and develop the Interclub Council which we feel will be of great benefit to all the clubs of the school. We hope to sec it established on a firm foundation before the close fo the year.
We arc trying to keep up the spirit of the club after the school life is over and this year we hope to have a toast from a student of each year of the Club’s life at our annual banquet in June.

The Sigma Delta Phi is a scholarship society organised by Miss Clark and Mr. Gillett. The purpose of the society is to create a greater interest in, and promote the welfare of the social sciences.
Of course the “flu ban" put a damper on the activities of this society as well as every other society in the school. Nevertheless the activitis of the society have dcvclopd a spirit of patriotism, good will and co-oprntion.
The meetings arc instructional as well as entertaining. The fact that they have been few in number this year has been in a measure made up for by thier excellence.
17KINDERGARTEN CLUB.Wo Kindergarteners have sought to carry out what is said in our motto: "To do is to realize." We have sought to promote the spirit of co-operation and good fellowship. This might be shown by the picnic given by the Seniors out at the Point for the Juniors at the beginning of the year, which surely made the Juniors feel perfectly “at home.” On account of the "flu" vacation, many of our little Friday afternoon "get-to-gethers” by the fireside could not be held. After the last "flu” vacation, however, the Juniors gave a lovely return party for the Seniors in the Kindergarten rooms. We had a most enjoyable time. The Superior Kindergarten Club wished to raise money for certain educational purposes. The two kindergarten classes gladly offered their services and a sale of hand-made valentines and candy was held and quite a sum of money realized. We have not only sought to bring about the spirit of eo-oi»eration in our department, but with the school as well. We have been very glad to share our beautiful rooms with all other classes or clubs and have done everything we could to promote the welfare of our dear old Normal.
The Juniors and the Seniors Were striving for renown,
The Juniors beat the Seniors For talent all around.
The Seniors beat the Juniors For brains and bluff and things.
Miss Harbour says they're all alike, Don't talk of such small things.
Miss Skinner says our story class Is the best she’s ever had.
Miss Gordon says her Junior
Are never, never bad.
Hut taken all together
They’re a pretty lively bunch.
And to follow all that they have done Would give you quite a hunch.
RESULTS OF ENGLISH LITERATURE.
(With Ai o1( kIcm to E l ?ar Leo Masters.)
No other class, unless it was before our time,
Did more for this school's fame than
All the wise, the brave, the clever ones,
And those who wished to work, flocked to us.
We were artistic, perfect Kindergarteners.
We were brilliant, "plastic,” with "latent possibilities,”
Hlesscd with "creative powers." Our teachers prized
All products of our handiwork.
And then one day (Mr. ) McCaskill, the President,
Gave to us our diplomas, saying:
"Get out! We’ve taught you all we know.”
They graduated us. they got us jobs.
The schools not getting us next year have closed.
IN ABSOLUTE DESPAIR.

This has been'the most successful year for the Y. W. C. A. since it has been established in this school. The one hundred members have tried hard to live up to the ideals represented by the Blue Triangle.
The meetings, arranged by the various committees, were both vital and interesting. In previous years it has been the custom to have speakers from the city address the members. This year, however, a new plan has been put into effect, whereby the students themselves take charge of the meetings.
The Y. W. C. A. lisa not lacked in social entertainments either. The "Sweet-; heart Party" and the “Doughnut and Coffee" meetings arc but instances of our good times.
The annual visit of the Central Field Secretary (Miss Hazel Bent) was very enjoyable and profitable. Miss Bent had many new and helpful things to tell the girls, so 8:00 a. m. conferences held no horrors—in fact they were enjoyed by all. The girls prepared and served a splendid banquet at which Miss Bent addressed the faculty.

With Conch “Louie” Kuleinski directing athletics, the basket ball season started with a big rush Jan. 10. Those who came out to keep up the “pep” of the school were: Captain A1 Craik, Bill Gebo, Eddie Nelson, Bob Jordan,
Norman Lasky, A1 Cowie, Arnold Dahl, Frank Russell, Ray Emerson and Francis Burros.
Handicapped because of no gymnasium the team practiced at the “V” between G p. m. and 7 p. m.THE SCHEDULE FOR 1919.

The victory over Stout put Superior in the ring for state honors so on Feb. 2(5 the team left for La Crosse.
BASKET BALL, FIRST TEAM.
After traveling all day we arrived in La Crosse at midnight. Hob Jordan sent a letter home as soon as we got off the train. We found our hotel after walking around the “city” a couple of times. (The coach likes to call it "city”). The next day “Louie” took us up to the school and introduced us to all the girls. EddfeSTmljA'l liked this best of all. That evening after our supper (two poached eggs on toast) we went up to the gvm. We had drawn K.au Claire for 10 p. m. This game was reported by the La Crosse paper as “the best, peppiest and fastest game of the tournament." Both teams were well matched, but when the whistle blew the score was 25 to 21 in favor of Kau Claire.
. - ‘The next day we drew Stevens Point for 10 p. m. That afternoon the coach read us a telegram from the second team saying they were behind us. This • lilpcd lots and put new vigor into us. Jordan .sent another letter home and Gebo met some more girls. Well, we met the Stevens Point "Grants” and did our best,
but they beat us 45 to 25. Saturday "’as the final day and an enthusiastic city turned out to see La Crosse carry off the honors. Places awarded were:
First—La Crosse. Second—Whitewater. Third—River Falls. Fourth—Stevens Point. Fifth—Kau Claire.
Sixth—Superior. Seventh—M ilwaukcc. Eighth—Stout.
Even if Superior did not get among the first places they came back with something even better. They were said to have played the “fastest, cleanest and fairest" game played. We all feel that this is worth more than a dozen first places.

Credit for much of the good work this year is due to our coach, Louis Kul-ccnski, who is striving for clean, wholesome athletics in the schools of America. Also credit should be given to the second team who made possible our practices. Until the school gets a gym of its own no better results can be looked for, so it is up to the school to back the boys and girls who play on our teams until then— which we hope is not far off.
In spite of snow, ain and the other elements which tried to hinder the team, the track season turned out remarkably well.
Those who answered Coach Jarvis’ call for track work were Captain George Shaw, George Moore, Stewart McKinnon, Norman I.asky, Lester Luse, Bcrthcl Thompson, Ernest Joppa, Hubert Sinclair and Eugene Potter. However, the war soon claimed Capt. Shaw, George Moore and Hubert Sinclair. Other war work took Joppa and Thompson—this left four men to continue the work.
About May 15 our four men met the High School and were defeated by a score of 54 to 51. The team did not loose hope and June 1, 1918, the team was sen to the state track meet at Whitewater against hard and strong opposition. Superior men were placed as follows:
McKinnon 4th—100 yd. dash, 10 8J5 i seconds.
McKinnon 4th—% mile run, 54 see. Lasky 5th—100 yd. dash, 10 4-5 see.

If it is true that the “proof the pudding is in the nting” it might he plausible that the proof of a school is in the worth of its alumnae. If that be the case the Superior Normal has enough proof at present to put it down in history; and indeed there is no telling what to expect from the forth coming classes.
For instance there is I)r. Paul II. Nystrom. who graduated in 190; . He now holds the position of director of research an deficiency expert in matters of circulation with the International Magazine Syndicate. Besides filling this responsible place he has been Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin and professor of the same ubjcct at the Univerity of Minnesota. He is also the author of “Retail Selling” and many magazine articles.
Distinguished in a different line is Capt. Clifford Bischotf, who has been awarded a Distinguished Service Cross for having brought in seventy-five German prisoners single handed. In fact the manner in which all the one-time students of the S. N. S. have answered their country’s call is a credit to their Alma Mater.
But lest one conclude that only the masculine element have proven worthy, we will mention only a few of the many women graduates who arc making their mark in the world.
Miss Amv Bronsky, who first graduated and later taught in this school, is now state supervisor of intermediate grades in Wisconsin. Miss Katherine Len-root of the class of .1909 is holding a responsible position in the Children’s Bureau in Washington, I). C. She is working under the leadership of Julia Lathrop.
Our only regret is that we have not space to enumerate the many successful careers in which the members of our alumnae have distinguished thcmslvs.
“HOBSON S CHOICE. ”.
As the Gitchcc goes to press the cast for the class play arc working night and day. “Hobson’s Choice" is expected to he one of the most successful plays ever given. Miss MacQuilkin is coaching the cast and she says she has fine material to work with, so we feel quite certain of its success.

Telling stories was as natural to him as sleeping; he practiced it daily in his profession and found it to be a great factor in his business success. He related one of his best stories at the Traveler’s Club the other night, and I am putting it down as well as I remember it.
"One day,” he said, "as I was waiting for my train in a Chicago depot, I was greeted by two lady friends of mine. The conversation that followed brought out the fact that we were all taking the same train.
“How lovely,” remarked Hazel, the elder of the pair, a beautiful blue-eyed blonde.
"Won’t that be grand,” chimed in Mabel in her girlish way. She was a typical contrast to Hazel with her soft brown eyes and her dark but no less beautiful complexion.
I managed to nod my head in affirmation of the three remarks, altlio I would much rather not have met the girls just then. I was about to enter into an important business transaction and I wanted to be left alone to think it over, but luck seemed to be against me so I resolved to take things as they came for the present and perhaps later my usual good fortune would appear and help me thru.
Presently the train arrived, thirty-five minutes late, and we boarded it. Mabel immediately spied two empty seats facing each other, and pushed me into one and she and Hazel took the one opposite. My last chance was gone. I had fervently hoped that there would be little room in the train so that we would be forced to take saparatc single seats, but ill-luck seemed to be on my heels. At othr times the train was usually full, but just when I most wished it to be crowded it was not.
As I expected, the conversation began immediately. "How's your business this spring, Fred?” asked Mabel.
I thought this a pretty personal question, but replied, "Oh ! pretty fair.”
"Traveling salesman must be an interesting life,” said Hazel. "One has a chance to see so many places and things and to meet so many people.”
"Yes,” I answered, rather absent-mindedly, gazing nonchalantly out of the window. "In some ways it is all right, but like most other things, it has its ups and downs.”
"Do you know,” ventured Mabel sweetly, "I think 3'ou would make a good banker.”
UC"Why?" 1 asked curiously.
"Because,” she replied softly, "you have such a winning disposition that would attract people and give you a large business.”
"Yes,” put in Hazel with an admiring glance in my direction.
“And he has such good judgment.”
I began to feel a little uneasy and attempted to change the subject.
"Have you ever seen an aviator change planes in mid-air?” I asked.
"No," said Hazel. "It must he a wonderful sight.” Then suddenly, "You would make a fine aviator, I’m sure, with your wonderful courage.”
I grew nervous, I noticed the other passengers were regarding us curiously, some with humor and some with disgust. I think I flushed a little and again tried to change the subject.
"I think this train is in need of some oil by the sound of it.”
"Yes,” agreed Mabel, "but with you for company we didn't even notice it.” I was growing desperate. Something must happen or I would surely collapse under the mental strain. Suddenly the train entered a tunnel and utter darkness ensued. A loud resounding kiss broke the silence. Then everything became light again as suddenly as it had become dark. The two girls sat regarding each other icily.
"Well,” I said coldly, "I am sorry I shall never know which one of you kissed me, but I must bid you good day.”
The passengers roared with laughter and both girls turned crimson.
To-day I suppose those two girl friends of mine still regard each other coldly, for I have never explained to them that the kiss resulted from my lips in contact with the back of my hand.
It was a mean triek, but I hope you, my hearers, will be lenient with me when you reflect on the desperate situation I was facing.

iVVc have tried to make this hook interesting and in part we feel we have succeeded. However, we could not have produced this annual without the hearty co-operation of others; so we wish to take this opportunity to thank those who have in any way contributed to its success—literary or financial. We especially appreciate the co-operation of the business men who have advertised in our book.
To the succeeding classes we wish to say:
1. Start early.
2. Boost hard.
3. Make the
whole school feel the responsibility of this book. In closing we would say that we arc only human—so please don’t judge too harshly.
The Staff ’19.
The class of 1919 is proud of the place our school has held in the war work of the past two years. We have given many of our graduates to the service and two of them nobly gave up their lives for the'great cause and one or more is wearing the I). S. C. of America. The students responded liberally to all requests for donations of any sort and I can only say that we arc all glad of peace once more and hope that we have seen the last of war.
THE EDITOR, 19.M Bvp fa
a dTcla 'LL a
Now Pershing decided one midsummer’s day,
While conducting the big scrap over the way,
That the army was not what it quite ought to be,
So he founded the Normal School S. A. T. C.
He put at its head three charming young licuts; Equipped from mere tccnique to spurs on their boots, And should you fail to appreciate these officers gallant To them we’ll devote a few lines of our tallent.
The unbending “Mansfield” was the first to appear,
A soldierly man, but hard boiled we fear;
Succeeding in rank came MacKenzie divine.
And we’ll hand it to him, he sure had a line;
And last there came Lutke from Dartmouth you know, 13y profession a lieut, but a much better beau.
Now whoever could fail to respect this array;
They were there with the dope, we certainly say.
The students themselves come next for inspetion,
And was then ever a unit so near to perfection.
The volunteers flocked from the cities and towns;
And they varied from Scholars to regular clowns;
They worked on their studies, at K. P. and at drill;
In truth, of hard work they ne’er had their fill.
They lived in real luxury at the Y. 1. C. A.
For a strenuous sport, at leap-frog they’d play.
The fame of these warriors spread abroad far and wide While tjic nation looked on with confident pride At last the bold Kaiser, harassed and sore pressed, Heard the news of the tin army in the wild west.
The future for him looked hopeless and black,
’Twas the straw that broke the old camel’s back,
And now there Mas left just one thing to do.
So he took off his hat to the red, white and blue.
71In order to get competent officers for the Army the government decided to give the young men a military training who were between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one, lihigh school graduates, and in the draft. The universities, colleges, and schools of the country were decided upon to be the most logical places to carry on this military training. As soon ns it was learned that some four hundred schools were to be selected to train these men, the local Normal got to work and sent in a petition for one of these units to be placed in the Superior School. After some anxious waiting by all of those concerned the news came that the Normal had been selected to train a unit of the S. A. T. C. Information to this effect was at once sent out into the surrounding territory. A man enlisting in this corp was to receive military training, tuition, board and lodging, and thirty dollars a month. The date for mobilization was set for September thirtieth.
On the appointed day the men began to report at the school. Physical examinations began at once. Nearly every one passed these tests with Hying colors. The men appointed to give the necessary medical attention to the unit were Dr. Mason and Dr. O’Leary. The next few days were spent in conducting the men into the service.. As the barracks on the top floor of the Y. M. C. A. were not completed the men stayed at private homes in the city. The use of these rooms were patriotically given over to the men by their owners. For a few weeks the boys had to buy their own meals until the mess hall was finished. The barracks were ready for occupantcy on November eleventh.
About a week after the mobilization of the corps, academic work began in real earnest. The men were divided into three groups, according to their ages. The first group was composed of the twenty-year-olds, the second of the nineteen-year-olds, and the third of the eighteen-year-olds. The first group was to have three months of training and then be sent away to an Officers’ Training School or to sonic Military Camp for further instruction. Their curriculum was composed of the following subjects: Conversational French, hygiene, military law,
surveying, and war issues. No electives were allowed. The second group was to have six months training, and then be sent away to complete their instruction. The men of this group were required to take three subjects out of the above mentioned five, with a choice of two electives. The last group was to have nine months of schooling and then be sent away the same as the other two groups. These men had only one required subject with four electives. Men ns a whole tried to do their best with the school work. But to many of them it was hard work. These same men were fortunate in receiving the amount of academic work that they did, for according to the reports that came back from the larger
7 aschools and universities everything was subordinated to the military side of the work. Thef acuity have to he thanked for this work, for they certainly did everything they could for the corps and then some.
The accompanying schedule was followed during the day:
6:40 Reveille. 1:30 First afternoon class.
7:00 Mess. 4:00 Formation and dismissal.
7:80 Drill began. 0:00 Retreat
8: 40 Calisthenics. 6:15 Mess.
9:00 First class called. 7:30 Formation.
12:00 Formation. 7:30 to 9:30 Supervised study.
12:30 Mess. 10:00 Taps.
On Wednesday afternoons mass athletics was taken part in by every one. Saturday afternoon and Sundays the men were off duty.
The morale of the unit was classed at one hundred per cent. One of the factors going to make up this morale was the ability to sing. Miss Curtis had charge of this part of the work and she most capably performed it. Popular pieces were sung for the most part. This singing each day was about the only thing that brightened up the school for the boys while the girls were away on their flu vacation. Nobody knows except the fellows in the S. A. T. C. how dear and desolate the Normal is without any girls around. Miss Curtis also organized a Military Band which made a very creditably showing.
As soon as the armistice was signed things began to slow down. This situation was not only true here but also in every camp in the country. Every one wanted to get out of the army and home. Their was some talk of sending the men over to France on reconstruction work, but this never materialized. Finally the order came that the unit was to be before December twenty-first Some news! Guns were stacked for the last time, physical examinations gone through, and everything was made ready for the men to receive their discharges.
The fellows got together and decided to have a banquet for the officers to show their appreciation for their excellent work. The banquet was held the night before the men received their discharges. Short talks were given by the officers and by several of the boys. The evening closed with a heavy sigh of regret on the part of the officers and fellows to think that on the next day the unit would be disbanded and they might never be able to be together again.
The next day, Friday the thirteenth, the boys received their discharges. They sure were a happy lot of fellows because they all wished to be home for the holidays. Although the boys were inclined to find fault once in awhile, army life agreed with them wonderfully. Taken all in all the time that was spent in the Superior Normal S. A. T. C. was a great experience in each one of these boy’s life.

1 Musical Work I
The musical work of this year started out with its usual pep and swing, hut due to the accident which befell Miss Curtis it was somewhat retarded for several months. We wish to stop right here and say a word of appreciation to Miss Curtis—your untiring work for good musical organisations in this school has been appreciated—and Miss Curtis, even tho you sometimes scolded us when we got too gay in music period, we surely missed you when you were ill, and we are mighty glad to see you around again. Your pluck and grit are great. Here's to you!
We also understand and appreciate the extra work Mrs. Thorsen has had to carry and she deserves full credit for keeping the music going while Miss Curtis was gone.
After promising us a most harmonious year fate gave the Glee Club some horrible discords. First there was a "flu" vacation which prevented our nppear-anec at the Superior Musical, then there was another “flu” vacation which ruined our Christmas program and then came the accident which kept Miss Curtis, the moving spirit of the club, in the hospital for several months. However, she is back now and the club is working hard (about six hours a week) on the music for commencement.
By One of the Girls.
The regular meeting time for the orchestra was set for Tuesday night, but because of illness and "flu” the entire orchestra 'met only five times. During the "flu” vacation the S. A. T. C. boys and Miss Curtis kept the music going with a bank composed of S. A. T. C. fellows.

The Kindergarten Alumnae have Imd a number of meetings this .year in spite of the unusual year and the "flu” vacations.
At Christmas time a number of dolls were made and dressed and the money used for our alumnae expenses.
At the February meeting the following officers were elected for the ensuing

MAE SULLIVAN .... Treasurer
It is with dee]) regret that we note the first losses by death within our alumnae in its nine years of existence. Florence Kinney, class of 1918, passed away at her home in Washburn. Mrs. Fay Pickering Colbcck, class of 1911, passed away at her home in Superior. Mrs. Colbcck was our first president, and gave to our alumnae work her most earnest efforts and enthusiasm.
There have been a number of marriages among our members during the past year. Several have gone into different phases of war work and two alumnae arc attending school—Florence Collins at the University of Chicago and Frances Ituth at Carroll College.
As is our custom letters have been sent out to the non-resident members to notify them of our annual banquet and "get-together.” This year it is to be held at the Badger Inn on Saturday evening. May 10th, and we hope for the biggest and best reunion so far.

Miss Pierce has awakened an interest in baseball and some plcndid players have been discovered and others have been developed. The G. A.
