Though we be scattered to the four quarters of the earth, once more in fancy may we meet in Central ' s halls, sit in her classrooms and hear again the voices of old friends. Once more we mingle with our fel- lows at a party or a frolic, feel the hearty handshake, and see the happy smile. To preserve and revive these memories is the cherished object of our humble attempt to portray the events of the year. If our book but serves this purpose, all our poor but sin- cere efforts will be amply repaid.

We admire him not only for his accomplishments as a scholar, also for his rare ability as a practical admin- istrator. We love him not only for his deep, genuine interest in our welfare and his con- stant, unwavering- devotion to duty, but also for his quick human sympathy with all our misfortunes and foibles, and for his readi- ness, when occasion offers, to make real sacrifices for us and the school. C. S. N. in her unending search for greater and greater achievement could have no better guide to direct her steps than this man with his noble ideals and his capacity to make real those ideals in his work and in his play. To him, we, the class of 1920, af- fectionately dedicate this Eighth Volume of the Bronze Book. 1920 c J r BRONZE ZBOUK] 1 L JOHN G. MITCHELL, A. M., President i i- .

A careful investigation was made of those then in use among the various prominent institutions in the United States that we might avoid copying. With the thought in mind that the colors should be significant, stand for something, be suggestive, the choice fell upon BRONZE and BLUE: Bronze, " The sha- dowed livery of the burnished sun " — the gentle light of intelligence; Blue, the color of the heavens — broad, expansive, suggestive of depth, aspiration, hope, ideals. Their first public, statewide display was at Guthrie when the Hon. John Adams, a prominent lawyer now of Guthrie, then a member of the first class ever graduated from an Oklahoma Educational Institution, represented the school in the first oratorical contest ever held in Oklahoma — the schools taking part being the University, the A. S M. College and " The Normal School for Oklahoma " — now " Central. " I he worthy wearer of the BRONZE and BLUE must be enthusiastic in intelligent service and inspired by noble thought, lofty aspirations and unselfish ideals. EDM1 l ) DANDRIDGE MURDAUGH. J r BRONZE ' _BQO n u L Eighl m ' in u in 3S o 1920 c J r lBHQHZEI book: 1 L Central tate jSormal cijool asit==|3rcsrnt The Legislature of Oklahoma has twice enacted hills with special refer- ence to the institution, organization and course of stud} of " Central " — origin- ally, in the first act, that oi 1891, " The Normal School for Oklahoma. " f o- day, that is its legal and proper name. The first bill, among other items, em- phasized teaching " the rights and duties of citizens. " The first catalog ever printed, in IN95, fur the school, called particular attention to that and soughl to show it to be a fundamental in the curriculum. That catalog was printed in 1895, in the presidency of Edmund Dandridge Murdaugh. Today, under the presidency of John (j. Mitchell, the same is true. The second act, that of [893, enlarged the curriculum and gave the Board of Regents the power to place the school virtually upon a college basis, specifically granting the right to teach any and every branch of Science oi- Literature that may seem advisable. Twenty-seven years ago the school opened its d s with Professor Thatcher as president and sole teacher and just twenty-seven young ladies and gentlemen as students. Today the twenty-seven are nearly all living and among the most prominent and prosperous citizens of our state. The school the first session met on the second floor of a frame build- ing standing on the west side of Broadwa) Avenue and about a block and a half south of the present site of the church. This fact was given to the writer b Professor Thatcher himself and he often pointed out to him the verj building while recounting many of his earl} experiences therein. The school remained in the building mentioned for about two months until the middle oi November, then was moved to the church building in order to obtain better quarters. But again removal became necessary. People at that time were not quite so liberal a they are today. Some oi the members of the congregation objected to the teaching oi " calisthenics, " which they described as dancing and thought led directl) to the infernal regions. President Thacher, an old Grand Army man, had learned the necessity of educating the physical man and therefore refused to permit interference with his curricula. Consequently, removal was again made to a building opposite what is now known as " The Central Hotel, " about half a block west oi the present Mate Lank. I he building — now called " Old North " and fronting the campus looking west — was begun in the summer of 18 2 and in September, 1893, was suf- ficiently advanced tow aid completion to be occupied by teachers and students. 1920 J r BRONZE _BQQKJ 1 a z q 5 Z O pi on J r BRONTE President Thatcher — a gentleman of great energy, marked ability, more than average scholarship and high ideals — felt it his dut to resign at the close of that session because of poor health, and former State Superintendent of Public Instruction in Kansas, George W. Winans, was elected as his successor. Mr. Tatcher, however, remained as professor of mathematics. President Winans ' term only lasted one year and he was followed by Professor Wil- liams of Texas, who resigned at the close of the session of 1894-95. Naturally, such frequent changes operated to the serious disadvantage of the school. In July of that year Edmund Dandridge Murdaugh succeeded to the pres- idency, holding that office for seven years Upon his accession the faculty was enlarged, the Course of study re-or- ganized, the campus laid out, trees set, and the wings to the original building erected. Si ion the school was known far and wide for its high standards, strong faculty, thorough scholarship and excellent training. Naturally this redounded its advantage. Upon his resignation president after president came, the school gradually enlarging and extending its influence as the territory — later the state — de- veloped. The summer term, first opened in the territory, was extended both in time and in curriculum and thousands filled the halls where only a few years before hundreds had worked and studied. The Legislature abolished the original quarter-mill levy, always a varying amount, made larger and definite appropriations more nearly commensurate with the needs of the school, added new buildings, placed it under the charge of the newly instituted Board of Education instead of a small board of regents, and the name was changed to Central State Normal School — five other similar institutions having been created meanwhile. Edmond, the seat of the school, grew in the meantime from a prairie vil- lage of five hundred or six hundred to a city of the " first class, " and today embraces within its limits not les than four thousand inhabitants with palatial homes excellent public schools and beautiful churches. Today Central is known throughout the educational circles of the union for its high standards, splendid ideals, strong faculty, thousands of alumni, po- tent influence and tremendous enrollment, ranking in the last respect among the two or three largest Normal Schools ,,f our country. Its graduates by thousands have filled places o1 honor and trust as lawyers, physicians, min- isters of the gospel, members of the legislature, as business men and as state builders in every walk of life, especially as teachers in district schools, as city and county superintendents, principals and heads of departments in hign schools and even as professors in universities. L Ele " ii I920 2 J r I BRONZE nnK H I ■ ■- - mm } ■$ ' Twelve 1920 c J In the summer I ' M " , the enrollment met the two thousand mark and, for the year, was about three thousand. Today success in every line of proper endeavor — physical, mental and social — perches upon her banner and her old motto " In Front " (originall) an exhortation — not a claim) is literally true. In May, 1919, a new president came to preside over her destiny — John G. Mitchell ' — a gentleman tit wide experiences in the full flesh of seasoned manhood, strong in scholarship, of unblemished character, lofty in aim, ol untiring energy and attractive personality. Already he has won the confidence of students, teachers, the townsfolk, and of the state at large. Under his firm and judicious management a brilliant future looms up. Followed gladly by a large and enthusiastic student body, enjoying rightly the confidence of the alumni and Boafd of Education, we predict for the school, through him, suc- cess almost immeasurable. So, glorying in her past, proud of her present and confident of her future, we say: — " Central! Central! Macte virtute! Esto perpetual " 1920 J J r BRONZE _BQOK] 1 l L S O x at H Z UJ G at m OS CL Fourteen 1920 J r BRONZE DSEQK 1 C Hje Jfuture Appreciating fully the demand being made by the public for profes- sionally trained teachers, for those who have been trained extensively in the science of teaching, the State Board of Education at its meeting December 30, 1919, added two years of college work to the present course. This made her Normal Schools four-year colleges, with the privilege of granting regular college degrees. Following is the resolution adopted by the board: First: The course of study for the Normal Schools of Okla- homa shall be raised to meet the requirements of a four-year col- lege course. Second: That authority be given through the State Board ol Education to the Oklahoma Normal Schools to grant the aca- demic and professional degrees, usually and customarily granted to the graduates of institutions of college rank. Hereafter Central will be a state Teachers ' College. The course offered will meet all conditions necessan from kindergarten to college, inclusive, and the degrees of B. S. and 13. A. will be granted to her graduates. The time has come to meet the demands of our people for men and women to fill positions in every department from superintendences to kinder- garten with those who have been trained for this particular profession. It is apparent that teachers should be especially trained foi leaching just as members of the other professions, as doctors and lawyers, are trained foi their work. A man would not go to a university and take an A. B. or A. M. degree and then attempt to begin the practice of medicine or law without training in his special profession and so it should be with teachers.

All teachers should make an earnest effort to secure the permanent license. It does not promote the best interest or the profession for teachers to teach on first, second or third grade certificates and on five and ten-year state certificates and continue to have these renewed any more than it would promote the best interest of the pro- fession of medicine or law to have the members of these professions granted licenses on this minimum training to practice their profession. Surely no pro- fession is more important than that which cuts and carves and moulds in the imponderable material of mind and soul. Central State Normal is situated near the geographical center of the state, easily accessible from every direction, has splendid water, superior moral advantages, a larger student body than any other Normal School in the state, a most enthusiastic Alumni and a faculty of college bred men and women, thoroughly devoted to the cause of education. With her wide scope of influ- ence and her recently enlarged curriculum, Central State Normal expects to render a distinct service to the great teaching profession of the State of Okla- homa.

Every member has worked faithfully for the best interests of the school. President John G. Mitchell came to us last summer. From the beginning he has been compelled to labor under difficulties, but he has met them all in a straight-forward manner that has caused everyone to trust and believe in him. Not only is he respected and admired by the student body, but the people of Edmond and of the whole state have begun to realize in the short year he has been with us that Central has indeed found a real school man to be its leader. Mr. Mitchell stands for everything that will make a school better from every standpoint. A high standard of scholarship, punctuality and clean ath- letics are just a few things that he has encouraged this year. Professor B. F. Nichart has labored for the good of the school many years. He teaches Pedagogy and Philosophy of Education and exerts a per- sonal influence tor good that is of inestimable value. He has helped train more teachers than any man in the state and is one teacher of whom no student was ever heard to say an unkind word. What a distinction. The life of Dr. E. 1). Murdaugh and the histor) oi C. S. N. are closely interwoven. In the early history of the school he was for seven years its pres- ident. After being connected with other state schools he came back as Profes- sor of Psychology and History of Education. As a scholar he has tew peers in the state; as an instructor in his chosen line, fewer still. He N courtly, polished and cultured as few men are. May he have his expressed wish — permission to spend his remaining years in the school that is so close to his heart. The very name and memory of Professor F. C. Oakes i- synonymous with English in Central Normal. For many years he has been striving by means ol conviction and persuasion to get young men and women to handle the Thirl J r LB RQN Z E ' f ZZ=r- BQ-QE3 Ml English language with greater care, and hopeless indeed, is that one who can remain in his cfass three terms without learning many things of much practical value in speaking or writing. Professor Oakes is editor of " The Vista. " Professor L. 13. Ray is in charge of the Training School and is a man of much influence here. He trains you to be a teacher and then secures you a position. Also he is chairman of the Advanced Standing Committee and in many ways is an indispensable factor in the school. No member of the faculty is better known than Mrs. A. Emma Estill, who is head of the Department " of History. She is the Senior Class Mother who looks after the pedagogical family with much care and interest. During odd moments she finds time to coach all the plays, direct various kinds of enter- tainments, be sponsor for the Shakespeare Club, and do many other things incidental to the administration of a school. Mrs. Estill was one of three women sent as Y. W. C. A. workers overseas by the National Federation ot Women ' s Clubs and is known as a leader of women in the state. Professor Jeffries is one of the very few who have received degrees from Central. For a number of years he has been making Latin a " life " sub- ject even if it is a " dead " language. His many years of efficient work here are a testimonial to the esteem in which he is held, and being still a young man, he promises to set up a record for continuous service. Central would not be the same place without Professor Jamieson, who has charge of the Biology Department. He has been here a long time and hi? cheery smile makes everyone his friend. He isn ' t given to " much speaking " but what he says is with effect. Mr. Jamieson is an able man and worthy of a place on any faculty. He is sponsor for the Senate Club. Professor V. O. Wilson lives, breathes and thinks in terms of Manual Training and no better evidence of the efficiency of his instruction could he produced than the fact that so many of his students are holding responsible positions in the best high schools. He is full of energy and is always going somewhere and in a hurry to get there. He is General Supervisor of Clubs and has done much to promote interest and enthusiasm in public speaking. Professor Wax has charge of the Department of Mathematics. If you wish to divide a Sunday afternoon into three equal parts or find the shortest line between two given boarding houses, he can help you. He served Uncle Sam ' s Navy during the war. Mr. Wax is an able instructor, a bachelor and popular with faculty and students. Professor Tourtellotte is turning out farmers and " farmeiettes " by the dozen. As Professor of Agriculture he fills the position well. He is a young man, the " Pa " of the Senior Class, member of the male quartette and soloist of note, former officer in the army, " auburn haired, " general " good fellow " and as one young lady said, " He put the " g " in go. Thirty-two 1920 BOOK] 1 Mr. Perico has had charge of the print shop most of the year and is a man who knows his business. He is genial, courteous and businesslike. Professor Otto is an instructor in the Science Department. He distin- guished himself in Southwestern Sta.te Normal and is a er able man. He is always pleasant and liked by all. Professor Payne is a big, jovial man who teaches and makes a hobby ol Mathematics. His great task is to get young people to ride with him and not fall off. Everyone likes Mr. Pavne. Miss Margaret McPheeters is in charge of the Domestic Science Depart- ment and teaches the young ladies to make biscuits that won ' t sink. She has had special training in " the A. M. College and is certainly the one for the place. For every function involving " eats " she is invaluable, and no matter how hard she has to work, she always keeps " sweet. " Miss Olive Thomas teaches Domestic Art and many young ladies are learning things that will be of great practical value to them. Miss Thomas is noted for charm of manner and unruffled disposition and is loved by her pupils. For most young men Drawing is a " required " subject, but Miss Clara Howard ' s manner of teaching it almost persuades them that drawing " frog windows " should be their chosen work. She is quiet, pleasant and knows how to get results from some well-nigh hopeless. Miss Ruby Canton has been C. S. N. Librarian for a number of years and she is no doubt the best in the state. If anything new is to be learned in her work, she goes awa to school and learns it. In her classes in Library- Science she gives to her pupils the benefit of her wide range of knowled Miss Lillian Holke was in charge of the Department of Public Speaking until her heart was pierced b) Cupid ' s arrow and she left us, all for the sake of one man. She was succeeded by Miss Fannie Glen, who was well able Jo lake up the work. Both ladies are former students and graduates of Central. L Mr. F. O. Seymour is the very able Registrar who has recorded our grades — -ood. bad and indifferent — during the year. Wr. Seymour is popular. He is obliging and always ready to help a student in distr ess. He spent several months in the army and gained experience which makes him such an lent " personnel officer " here. [_ ' i ' i[ 1 1 1 ■ i i I920 J r I BRONZE ZEESK 11 Mr. Scott, Financial Secretary to the President, was another of Uncle Sam ' s nephews during- the recent troublesome days. He formerly was a teacher with President Mitchell and has made many friends in the short time he has been here. Miss Broad is the smiling stenographer in the President ' s office. It is she who makes most of the " dates " for the activities of the school and knows all the secrets. Miss Pearl Reece taught Piano most of the year and was a friend to all who knew her. Miss Clarissa Coudert is Assistant Librarian. She is always ready to help find a book or assist in any way she can, and is kind and agreeble to everyone. Miss Carrie Belle Wantland directs the Physical Training for the girls. She is very energetic and attracts everyone by her " happy manner. Miss Lucy J. Hampton is a very capable teacher of History. She has been with Central for several years and has charge of the only Normal School Museum in the state. Highly educated and gracious in her manner, Miss Hampton commands attention in any group of people. For a number of years Professor A. H. Green has made music for Cen- tral. Teachers of his kind are hard to find and few students come out of his classes without a higher appreciation of the science of music. He has developed a chorus that is second to none in the state. Mr. Green was for several years organist for one of the largest churches in Oklahoma City. Professor Rothenberger is instructor in Foreign Language and teaches us to " parlez francaise " and also speak Spanish. He comes originally from Switzerland and is a graduate of Chicago University. Professor Rothenberger speaks eight languages and is eminently fitted for his work. Miss Bertha Matthews is instructor in Rural Problems, Nature study and has proved her ability by her successful teaching in Central. She always wears a smile which casts long rays of sunshine into some of the dark spots of — well, whatever happens to be dark and gloomy. Miss Matthews is Sponsor for the Criterion Club. u L Mrs. Pearl Watkins teaches English and the fact that she has been here for several years is proof sufficient that her instruction is valued highly. She is Dean of Women and a real " friend in need " to the young ladies of Cen- tral. Mrs. Watkins gives of her time and energy without reserve and is a valu- tble member of the faculty. in Thirty-foui 1920 J r BRONZE Miss Edna Jones, who teaches Penmanship, has more patience than falls to the lot of two ordinary persons, else she could not try so diligentl} to make real penmen out of some of the " material " in her classes, and, through it all, she wears an encouraging smile that makes you want to learn, even it there were no other motives. Professor Adamson, teacher of Mathematics and Geography, is another who has given many of his best years to Central. Professor Howell is a C. S. N. product and is now in charge of the Science Department. He is a teacher of much ability. As a photographer he is a " dandy " and makes most of our group pictures. Professor Howell is Sponsoi for the Arena and is held in high regard by everyone. Professor C. W. Wantland has coached a championship football team every year of the eight years he has been Athletic Director. He is known as one of " the best in the state and as one who stands for clean athletics. Professor Bogue is instructor in Violin and his solos in assembly during the year have been highly appreciated. Miss Coover is teacher of the Seventh and Eighth grades in the Training School, and she is a good one, too. Her work is thorough and her lessmis ably presented. Miss Hinds is known as one of the best Primary Teachers in Oklahoma and fortunate are the little tots who come under Iter care. She has been in Central before and returned this year to succeed Miss Jarre! who married during ihe term. Miss Stroud teaches the Fifth and Sixth grades and is a valuable mem- ber ot the Training School Faculty. Mis Virginia Howard directs the Third and Fourth grades. She is an ex- cellent teacher and knows her work well. L Thirty-five 1920 1 J r :bednxet A. EMMA ESTILL, Mother. ■ " } E. E. TOURTELLOTTE, Father. U L CARRIE BELLE WANTLAND, Aunt.

In the dim twilight the tower of the Old Normal was outlined against the sky. As the shadows deepened and the silvery moon came out in the western sky, the Old Tower grew talkative and told this story to the listening breeze: I am lonely now, for many of the dearest and best ot my children have left me. Others had gone before them whom 1 had loved, others will come after them who will he dear to me, but this troop, the Class of 1920, has wound itself around my old heart string so that no one ean ever quite re- place them. I remember them in their first year (this with a melodious chuckle that might have been mistaken for the chimes). It was in 1916 the;, came to us as Freshmen. Hut do not picture to yourself an ordinary Freshman class, meek and humble, awed into wholesome respect for (acuity and upper class men. No! They had lived and learned through two years ot rule of normal- dom and, after countless experiences of blundering into wrong classrooms, finding themselves " called upon the carpet, " flunking in algebra, «.itin or other unimportant subjects, the} had come at last into their own. The world was at their feet and should do their bidding. They hardly heeded the other classe: — the Sophomores, Juniors, and even the statelj Seniors, for they were sufficient unto themselves. u Triumphantly they made their way into their classes, these darlings of mine. Through their zoology, their Cicero, their lengthy compositions, they labored and really imagined they were working hard. They never forgot the social side of life, parties and picnics the;, indulgec in frequently; and with each event the} rew prouder of their class, and 1 grew prouder of them. Thus their first year glided grandly av They were Sophomores the next tall as they came back — those who did come back, for several, poor dear-, were compelled to drop out by the roadside. L ■ 1920 J r IBRQN2E _BQ£1KJ 1 The world seemed a more serious place by this time, and my children found that there were others in it besides themselves. There was a Senior class, high and mighty, who looked down kindly from their dizzy heights. My little Sophs might attain to their greatness some time, if they labored hard enough; and so they " dug. " There were Juniors, too, who " pestered " my friends. upon every possible occasion. The Freshmen seemed a silly bunch, and the Sophomores knew they had never been so egotistical. They found out for the first time that the faculty were men and women who knew a great deal — in several instances more than the students them- selves. Even the class amusements this year were no mere frivolous frolics, but dignified entertainments, and the memory of those times clung to them for a long time. But Sophomore, like Freshman, years came to an end. persed to meet again as Juniors. Mv class dis- The year of 19 IS brought many new members to the class. As Uncle Sam had called most of the boys, of course they missed them, but they were still known as the " Jolly Juniors. " The heights of Seniordom still seemed to glimmer in the distance, but still, " what ' s the odds as long as you ' re ' appy? " and they were ' appy. They " do-re-me-ed " until Professor Green ' s heart must have swelled with pride. They studied color schemes, they watched for symmetry and pro- portion; they roved over the masterpieces in the museum. They baked and stewed and sewed for Misses McPheeters and Thomas, or measured and hammered and sawed for Professor Wilson. They lost their hearts to Miss Wantland and followed her through the mysteries of folk dances. They wrote, copied and recopied theme after theme for Mr. Oakes, and topped off their efforts with orations that would have made Patrick Henry blush at his own. This year, too, rushed on to a close; commencement time came. With eager good will my Junior band banquetted their predecessors, wishing them God-speed as they started forth to their careers, then joyously stepped into their vacant places — Seniors at last. September brought them trooping back, not only the old classmates came, but many new members, until the number reached 14o. The increased number brought increased zeal and animation and loving loyab; . They were a wideawake crowd and without delay reorganized the class. electing George Kimball president, Lillie Reed, vice president, Beulah Roberts, secretary, and Paul Keller treasurer. They realized their need for Kith and Kin and chose as their own Father Tourtellotte, Mother Estill and Aunt Carrie Belle Wantland. Sixty-four 920 J r I BRONZE . i--j ] book: 1 All too quickly the last year sped by. M dignified Seniors thronged to the training school and gently or otherwise guided the youthful minds aright. I could overhear now deep and learned discussions of Aristotle, Com- enius and Froebel as groups of my children passed by. The basket ball game with the boys of the Junior and Senior classes was won by my friends the Seniors, 17-12. 1 can see them still strolling past me as the spring came on. I watched for them and grew eager to see their smiling faces. But they are gone now, one and all, the largest and to me even the deai e t class that Central Normal lias yet sent out into the teaching world has scattered to every part of our country. But wherever they are, I know the) will all fondly treasure the happ) memories of the school days spent in CSN and they will be true to their calling. The earnest zeal of their instructors here was not in vain, and their labors will be repaid in the spreading of the gospel of true educational ideals in a hundred districts. I am left lonely for m old friends, I grieve not for those who went forth so eagerly to their fields of labor, but for myself left here to miss daily the bright cheer and sunshine of their presence. Mv benediction be ever on the Class of l ' 2o. The moon had slipped behind a cloud, the wind sighed softly in sym- pathy, and a pensive note sounded faintly as the tower clock chimed out " the hour of half past twelve. 15. k. L Sixty-five 1920 £ J r BRONZE J3QQKJ 1 L We, the members of the Senior Class of 1920, being of sound and benev- olent mind, and recognizing the gravity of this solemn act, do hereby publish and declare this to be our " last will and testament, thus revoking all former wills, and pray the administrators to carry out faithfully our last and most earnest wishes. We bequeath to the Juniors, for a period of one year, the most valued of our possessions — the honor of being Seniors — and assure them, that, in bestowing this priceless boon, it is with all good will and with the fervent hope that it will be kept inviolate until such time as it, with all its privileges, is passed on to those entitled to receive the same. To the Sophomores we convey all the imaginary wisdom and greatness that falls to the lot of Juniors. In the discharge of your many duties, you are charged always to imitate the class above you and pretend on all occa- sions that you are the chief reliances of the president in the school ' s adminis- tration. But, be not so bold as to believe it yourself, for therein is great danger. To the Freshmen we extend our heartiest good wishes as you climb the ladder of learning. To you comes now the necessity of many hours of weari- ness and to studying over hard lessons. But take courage and do not falter, and one day you shall have your reward, and you may sit in the center sec- tion of the new auditorium. To the Subs we give the doubtful privilege of being the meek and lowly of the school, but remember, we have all been where you now are. So look at us and cheer up. Having thus disposed of the greater part of our possessions, we desire to make the following individual bequests: To President Mitchell we extend our thanks for his kindly interest in us and the wish that Fate may ever smile approvingly upon his earnest efforts. 1920 zz J r BRONZE ' I pon the faculty we bestow our kind regards and hope they will miss us for a few days when we are gone. H the president of the next Junior class we bestow the privilege ( | ol hiding the insignias of every class. Our personal property, including Lovers ' Rock, the bulletin hoard and halls and other loitering places, Central hall, the postoffice and the campus, we bequeath collectively to the school. Lastly, to all future students of Central State Normal College we bequeath man} diplomas and degrees, with the attendant duty oi making this school honored throughout the state.

L Six t y-se vi n 1920 1 u J r BRONZE zemK H L While serving on the Republican National Committee in 1936, it fell in the line of duty for me to pay a brief visit to our splendid state of Oklahoma. It is always impossible to think of Oklahoma without many memories of the pleasant days spent in Central Normal and of the many acquaintances formed while a member of that fine graduating class of 1920. What has become of all of them in the past sixteen years 3 If you remember, Mrs. Emma Estill, the present governor of Oklahoma, was the class mother during that year. With her kind assistance I am able to give the following account. William J. Mc- Granahan is the business manager of the Daily Oklahoman. The circulation of the paper has more than doubled in the past few years. Celeste Gabel, successor to Miss Johnson, edits a daily gem of information and useful ad- vice. Another important member of the staff is Leta Rue Dean, who has charge of the Home Economics section. The important law firm of Keller, Hicks Roberts is well known throughout the state. This does not seem surprising to many of us who knew them in the old days. Beatrice Roll is the efficient business manager of a large modern agricul- tural farm. One of the greatest oil men in the state is — Adolph Barket. Yes, he is married. Perhaps you remember that Victorine Fry had a penchant for domestic science. She is now demonstrating the practical kind in a vine-covered bunga- low not far from here. Lillie Reed, Mary Morrisett and Elda Whitaker are also proving to the world that the good " American home is by no means obsolete. Quite contrary to expectations, Charles Evans, Jr., is now starring in his latest film production, " The Super-Man. " Margie Leeper has joined the ranks also, and is now playing in the recent ' revived vampire roles. Mercer Lewis and James Post are large ranch owners in South America. Perhaps some of you had the pleasure of hearing Hazel Spearman at (lie Metropolitan opera house in New York last season. As the immortal Aida, " she has never been excelled. Golda McClintock is doing concert work and her marvelous voice is the wonder of two continents. Sixty-eighl 1920 J r BRONZE " My Ten Years in Europe, " by L. B. Dolan, is considered the most authentic written account of conditions there. George Kimball, Elma Thompson and Virginia DeMunbrun are the lead- ers in the Campaign Against Coffee Drinking in America. Cecil Morgan, our old friend " Slim, " is, as you know, the present presidential candidate on the Socialist ticket. " How to Be Happy, Though Married, " is one ot the chief attractions " l the leading daily papers. It is edited by Madge Ingram. She is not married herself. Milo Bernard has danced his way to fame, and is now the leading vaudeville attraction in New York. They have even named a cigarette after him. Clay Kerr, the leading educator ot the country, has just been elected president of the National Educational Association. Although the sands of time have wiped away traces of main other mem- bers of the class, there is no doubt in my mind but that each is filling his place in the world as true men and women, and as good American citizens should. Lone live the Class of 1020! For the above account we are indebted to Miss Charlotte Grass, who is the present Secretary of State, and also leader ot the Woman ' s National Party. Miss Grass is said to be the most brilliant member of the cabinet, always accomplishing, as she did in Central, anything she goes after. L s i x 1 1920 J r IRRONZE ZHDSK] 1 Central ' s M Apologies to Kipling If you can get through Central without bluffing, And still retain a pleasant happy smile; If you can do the work that is assigned you, And live like others all the while; If you can work and not be tired by working, Or being curled about, don ' t lose your vim, Or being talked about, don ' t give way to talking, And yet keep up your work and wear a grin. If you can dance — and not make dance your morrow; If you can shift the cards, and not make cards your aim; If you can meet the joy and the sorrow And always feel yourself the very same; If you can be to every class and not be tardy, And know your lessons well the whole term through, And then got frown when asked to take examinations. Or cry if you fail among the few. If you can choose your friends in all your dealing And please them regardless of the cost, And never fear that you are sinning, And never tell them of your loss; If you can spare one-half of all your winnings To put in one new; fancy garb, And wear it the live-long season And never dream that you are tired. If you can win a husband in this city, Who is charming, joyous and wise, If neither books nor girls can harm him; If all folks love him, but admire otherwise; .If you can make him think he is the winner, And call you his magic prize, You are a heroine, the model oi the ages, And your fame will never die.

With what seemed to be a little shyness, but yet with a joyous restless- ness of childhood, some of the Juniors of 1920 came tottering to spend their first days in kindergarten thirteen years ago. Little did we realize that we would join hands with fellow students from all over our glorious state to form a class never to be forgotten in Central ' s history or each individual ' s life. Those flitting and happy days quickly passed, and as Freshmen the cla found itself a recognized unit in the records of " Old Central. " As Freshmen of ' 17, this class was well represented in all school activ- ities. Then came the war! As all loyal Americans desired, many members of the Freshman class volunteered to " tight on land, sea or in the air. As Sophomores, the members of this class, although being robbed oi many young men, organized and each did his bit to make life and school days really worth while. This class was represented to a great extent in school activities. Many of our boys being athletes, while Marguarite Splangler grad- uated in piano. Thus to the immediate and present school year. As to the achievement of the Juniors of 1920, much might be said. As Juniors this year, the class seemed full of ginger and " pep, " ready to take the place of leaders in all school activities. Great undertakings laid before this class as the started on the year ' s work. Hut with faith and great diligence, the members o1 the class have at its close fully realized the great things which only hard work and organization can bring. Famous names found in the sport sections of the various newspapers are written upon the junior Class roll. Ninety per cent of the varsity men in football, basket ball, track and tennis are staunch Junior men. l.e Force, Hol- land, Frary, kidd, Spangler, Eaton and man} others are noted Juniors. .■ . i til -nine I920 J r BRONZE ' _BOQKJ 1 But athletics is only one of many branches of school activity. Miss Con- stance Gilbert was recently chosen to represent Central in the state reading contest. Francis Kibby was chosen by a popular vote of entire student body to be May Queen. And again, C. D. Spangler and Stout were chosen to rep- resent Central in the Annual State Triangular Debate to be held April 2 3. The Christmas program put on by the Junior Class December 19, 1919, was considered by all who attended not to be excelled. On this same day the first class " Vista " was published by the Juniors. It was read and enjoyed by all. The annual Junior play, " The American, " featuring Everett McAninch and Constance Gilbert, was a glorious success. Miss Bertha Mathews of the Education Department, beloved by all who know her, guided the Junior class through trials and tribulations with a kind and most motherly love. Our dear little class aunt, Lillian Holke-Haskins, left us in January while the bridal march was being played. The class success was due also to the ready counsel of our beloved and highly esteemed class father, F. C. Oakes, head of the English department. The advice and help of these much loved class parents has in no small degree accounted for the class ' glorious success during the year. To make a long story short, the Juniors have without exception gained the full glory of leaders which only faithfulness and fairness can bring!

Fables say that these birds are the wisest of all creatures, for they are ruled over 1 thai notorious sage, the owl, that bird which sym- bolizes Wisdom. It was midnight, ah, mystic hour, what deeds have been committed in thy limits! The great silver moon was swinging low, everything was quiet in the forest, for all was well in the forest. Suddenly the silence was broken, for from the deepest and most sheltered recesses of the forest came, " To whit, to whim. ' This was the call of the king calling his band. The birds throughout the forest awakened and listened, then hastily gathered their broods together and hastened to their king. " mm m all were at ' respectful distance waiting to hear their king. " Listen, " said the owl, " to things oi great import. You know that far to the -Ae -t a mighty temple has been raised and dedicated to the gods of Wisdom and Knowledge. Great is its fame and each year sees Wisdom ' s seekers coming ' from far and near to worship at my shrine of Wisdom. This thing has penetrated into the inaccessible depths of the forest, for you know well of Central. " I ast fall there wandered into these sacred Eyslian Fields of learning a small band, small, yes, but highly intellectual and exclusive; the others called them Sophomores. The prerogative to organize their rank was bestowed upon them. First they chose me as their symbol, and then I imbued them with my most profound wisdom. Next they elected Russell Meyers as pres- ident. Then they chose Professor Jamieson and Miss McPheeters for parents (rare judgment indeed). In February their mother gave them a tea, at which their new banner was unfurled. Then came a fitting climax for such a glorious career, then- day in chapel. The beautiful and stately vestals and the brave and handsome priests of learning, turned into as merry hearty Irish lads and lassies as you ever wish to see on this side of Ireland. ••Hut, listen — The birds all opened their mouths in expectation, but the owl, that gay- old bird, catching the eye of a young turtledove, gave a merry wink and a shy flirt of his tail, arose, flopped oh and away crying: " To whit, to whoo, Wait and see what they do, L ' hat Senior Class of ' 22.

" More than any Sub-A class in the past, this class is quite satisfied that they are a very necessary element in Central State Normal School, for some of the members of the class have already arisen to great prominence; for instance, Elizabeth Hale, who was a candidate for the Popularity contest. Many other instances might be given to show just how necessary the Sub-A ' s really are. The class has firmly decided to make their growth proportional in the future to their growth in the past, and as a natural consequence, the Class of 1924 will be THE class in the history of Central State Normal School. r BRONZE _BjQQK] 1 SubB Many the classes that come and go, but we linger only a little while as the " beginners ' class " in school.

We are glad to be even the beginners in the course offered by Central. Our hopes are high; our intentions are good; and our school life here promises to be pleasant and useful and the crowning event of our few and joyous years.

Almost all of the intellectual and social activities of the Central State Normal center around the various clubs of the school. From the members of these organizations are selected the debaters who represent Central in the State Triangular and the readers who take part in the State Reading Contest. With scarcely an exception, the officers of the classes and those prominent in music, dramatics and even athletics, boast of membership in one or other of these school societies. There are eight of these in Central. They are not fraternities, but demo- cratic associations where each individual is judged not by his fortunes and fam- ily, but by his own merits. Debating exclusively is the work of three of these clubs. They are the Triumvirate, the Arena and the Senate. The first named is a girls ' club and they have as their rival the T. O. K., another girls ' society which, in addition to debating, devotes much time to the study of literature and music. This fact, however, does not prevent its members from becoming past masters in the forensic art. Three times a year these two groups of intelectual amazons meet in friendly but hard-fought verbal combats. The men ' s debating clubs also hold annually three desperate encounters where they test the keen- ness of their wits and the power of their oratory. The Criterions, the Shakespeares and the Tsa Mo Gas are patrons of literature, music, the drama and the other fine arts. The Tsa Mo Ga, in addi- tion to these absorbing topics, however, makes an exhaustive study of the history and customs of the Oklahoma Indian. The Shakespeares, as their name would indicate, devote most of their attention to the study of the works ot the Great Master, and produce annually one of his dramas. These produc- tions are always counted among the big events of the year. The Criterions give their time to a thorough study of the more modern dramitists, musicians and artists. Then there is the Quill Club under the competent and enthusias- tic direction of Miss Edna Jones. Its membership is made up of those inter- ested in better writing. Its chief object is to prepare its members to receive penmanship certificates. In this work the club is very successful and efficient. Thus we see that the clubs of Central are ample in number and sufficiently diversified in character to offer abundant opportunity for gratifying personal tastes and developing the individual talents of all the students. The young men and women engaged in this work are gaining experience that will be invalu- able to them when they go out into the busy world of affairs. The real mater- ial value of these organizations cannot be overestimated and C. S. N. would be a dull place without them. Ninets i J PROF. V. O. WILSON At the beginning of the year President Mitchell, in furthering his desire to secure high efficiency, appointed Prof. V. ( ). Wilson to fill the position as director of club work, this meant that he was to have general supervision of the various clubs, make all arrangements for inter-club contests and act as umpire and arbiter in case of disagreements. Along with these duties Mr. Wil- son was given charge of all the Triangular Debates from start to finish. In his work he has been faithful and untiring. He has put enthusiasm into the club work and communicated to the Triangular debaters his spirit of perse- verance and confidence. For their growth and success this year the clubs are not only indebted to Mr. Wilson, but owe much In the president and to ever} member o1 the faculty. President Mitchell has shown himself willing and anxious to promote their interests and no one could have given more prominence to their work or greater consideration to their needs. Club members are all under -pecial obligation to Miss Mathews, Miss Hampton, Miss Coover, Miss Canton, Mrs. Estill, Miss Jones, Mr. Jamieson Mr. Howell for their kind and helpful services and advisors, guiding our steps aright when we were undecided and directing us always in the path of honor and hard work.

It was established in the year of 1908 for the purpose of developing the foremost young men of Central along the lines of sound thinking and the art of public speaking. The club has been very fortunate this year ii: securing the services of Prof. E. L. Howell, charter member of the Arena, as faculty advisor. He has shown an interest in the club at all times and we feel that he is the right man for the place. We believe that we have a right to be proud of the record made by the members of the Arena in school activities this year. The presidents of the Senior, Junior, Sophomore and Freshman classes are all Arena men. In the try-out for positions on the State Triangular Debate three positions out of the tour were filled b Arena men. We feel that we have a right to be proud that the Arena has three times as many representatives as all the other clubs com- bined. In contesting this year the Arena has broken even with its old-time enemy, the Senate. In the fall term contest Spangler and Hicks won over the Senate in debating. Oration by Kimball vs. Senate, Senate won. In the winter term contest Kellar and Baird vs. Senate, Senate won; Spangler de- feated the Senate in oration. Kimball and Johnson will debate in the spring term and Charles Evans, Jr., will deliver the oration. OFFICERS Carlton 1). Spangler Pres. Fall Term. Paul E. Keller Pres. Winter Term.

Their work in the study of Shakespearian Plays has been very efficient this year. The Shakespeare Club has been a prominent leader in the social affairs of the year, some of which were a reception to President and Mrs. Mitchell, a reception for the State Federation of Women ' s Clubs, a Christmas Party. Also Mrs. Estill entertained the club at a luncheon at the Skirvin hotel in Oklahoma City and a matinee party at the Overholser theater, having as guests of honor Mrs. .1. 1 ' .. A.

When the fall term opened there was not a former Criterion member in school. Miss Margerete McPheeters, the previous advisor, together with two alumnae, met and selected Miss Bertha Mathews for sponsor. Invitations were sent to several girls and the club met in regular order for the first time October 6, 1919. We have had an interesting year both in study and in a social way. The club has studied plays by Clyde Fitch, Shaw, Jones, Bjornson, Thomas. Maeterlinck, and Ibsen. Our social activities include a banquet for our football heroes, a reception to all the clubs and two club parties. One of our most interesting and enjoyable evenings was when several alumnae Criterions met with us to administer the initiation to the new mem- bers. We leave as a monument of our club this winter the Criterion flower garden, which we hope will give to others the happiness and pleasant mem- ories which our club associations have given to us. Several of our club members are coming back to secure a degree or a life certificate and to them we leave our newly furnished club room and our beloved and faithful advisor, Miss Mathews. Respectfully submitted to the students and the alumnae of C. ?. N. as a true and correct record of the Criterion Club of 1919-1920.

Motto — " If you can ' t find a va make one. " The members of the first Triumvirate Club devote their time and ef- fort exclusively to debating. They have been given greater opportunities for self-improvement and culture along this line this year than even before, he- cause debating has been given a standing and recognition in Central which it has not previously held. The First Triumvirate Club stands for honor, scholarship, truth, loyalty and perseverance. The members of this club love and honor the institution which makes possible this practical training.

The membership has been made up of men eager for work and every one has tried to improve himself and uphold the honor of the club. Earlv in the year a few former members met and organized for business. The full quota of members was quickly secured among men who stood well in school and gave evidence of becoming valuable members. In two contests with the Arena we have divided honors — winning and losing a debate and oration — but there is confident hope that we shall win the honors of the year. Besides the excellent work in debating, much profi- ciency has been attained in parliamentary practice. The club was fortunate in the selection of Prof. Jamieson as Faculty Advisor. He is capable, always has the interests of the club at heart, and has much to do with the success of the year ' s work. Feeling that the old constitution was somewhat outgrown, a new one was adopted during the year which promises to meet the new conditions and stand for years. Having three loyal sister clubs, the activities of the year have not been confined solely to business and the social features will leave many pleasanl menu Ties. The Senate is organized primarih tor the improvement of its mem- bers in public speaking. The result cannot be determined now, but in the future, when we go into the world to match wits with other men, the exper- ience gained here will stand us in good stead. So our purpose now is to do the best we know and to be a magnanimous winner or a graceful loser. OFFICERS President, Fall Term Roy Smith President, Winter Term James H.

But, although Miss Jarrell was fund of us, she was just a little fonder of some one else and not one of us could blame him for taking her away last January.

The ' T. ( ). L., ur T;iu Theta Kappa Club, was organized in the fall of l l l 7 b) Professor W. T. Ford, in answer to the need of a girl ' s debating club tn compete each term with the Triumvirates. Though the club was organized primarily as a debating club, it became during the first year of its existence a general talent club and as such it has remained — and flourished. One eve- ning each month is devoted to music, one to drama, one to debating and one to poetry. The members of the club are chosen strictly on their ability to " DO THINGS " and as a result it boasts more members of real talent than any other club in school. On the .roll of the T. O. K. Club are to be found the names of pianists, violinists, vocalists, readers, debaters and artists. During the fall and part of the winter term the club had for its sponsor Miss Lillian Holke. Under her able leadership the club play, " The Lust Pleiad, " a Greek Fantasy, was given. It was a decided success and was pronounced a most artistic play. When Miss Holke left us to become Mrs. Haskins, Miss Ruby Canton was chosen to succeed her and too much cannot be said for the work Miss Canton has done, or for the benefit the club has gained by her leadership. Her faith and diligence have caused us to win over many difficulties and placed the club, according to faculty authority, ' ' at the top of the list — the best club in Central.

If any group of students should be placed on a golden honor roll the people who have fought for their respective clubs should be given this place. Their names may be forgotten but they will carry the results of the vear ' s work with them down through the coming years. The results may be " interesting, and at least are worth recording in this book. The Arena-Senate contest in " debate and oration for the year has resulted in a tie. Victor Hicks and Carlton Spangler won the fall term debate over Karl Shelton and Chas. Tavlor, while L. B. Dolan defeated Geo. Kimball in the oration. The Senate came back strong the winter term, when L. B. Dolan and James Post gained the decision over Paul Kellar and Everitt Baird, but Spang- ler saved the day by winning the oration from Clay Kerr. The points for the vear stand even and the most interesting contest only a few weeks off. The Arena is to be represented by Wavne Johnson and Geo. Kimball while Chas. Evans, Jr., will deliver the " oration. The Senate has arrayed against these, Marshall Gregorv and Miles Coates, while Tom French gives the oration. The debates are " on questions of national interest. Compulsory Military Train- ing, Mandatory Arbitration and Profit Sharing have been well worked out and fully settled. Of no less interest and fully as well appreciated, the debates between the Triumvirate and T. O. K. have decided such questions as the Mexican Situ- ation, Arbitration and Immigration. The Triumvirate won over the T. O. K. in the fall contest. Miss Pauline Weant and Margaret Harris were the for- tunate ones and won over Ester Tomme. During the winter term the T. O. K. Club turned the tables and Beulah Roberts and Juanita Alcorn carried the decision over Alma Thompson and Gladys Haskins. Again the decision for the year rests with the spring term debate, and from the representatives the final count is problematical. Mrs. Olive Kirkpatrick and Eva Ludwick for the Tri- umvirate and Charlotte Grass and Lyda Bates for the T. O. K., will fight to the last. We thank, honor and envy those who have been so fortunate as to fill these important places. L One Hundred Sixteen ' l920 J BQQK] 1 THE STATE TRIANGULAR DEBATE. On December is, 1919, the State Triangular Question was presented to Central, two days later twenty-one students met to pledge themselves as workers, debaters and fighters for places on the State Team. Two months latei fifteen of these debaters met for the annual try-cut. For over three hours arguments and oratory tilled the old hall. The reaking system was used to se- lect the four debaters and two alternates. Paul Kellar, J. D. Stout, Carlton Spangler and Victor Hicks won the highest ranks, and L. B. Dolan and Beulah Roberts were chosen alternates. Professors Jeffries and Otto were appointed .1- special coaches for the affirmative team while Professors ( akes and Sey- mour worker with the negative. The question was, Resolved: that the settle- ment by arbitration of labor disputes shall be made mandatory by the na- tional legislature enactment. Central ' s negative team won at home over the debaters from Durant while her affirmative team lost to N. E. S. N. at Tahle- quah. We wish to honor these teams whether winners or losers and also gfive you a list of the fifteen who were willing to fight for Central. Many strong teams might have been chosen from their numbers.

These young people meet one hour twice each week to study music, or to put it more aptly, to give expression through song, to the joy of living. The organization holds a unique place in the school life, having all the characteris tics of a regular class; it goes farther and becomes one of the happiest social hours of the week. Here young life meets young life, and through harmony of thought and will, finds harmony of tone. The work of the chorus is not confined to the class room and chapel exercises, however. The chorus assisted in the entertainment of the teachers of Oklahoma at the State Teachers ' Association meeting in February, winning the commendation of educational leaders of this and other states. The chorus is also an important factor in the school ' s great spring festival. The aim of the organization is expressed in the word " interpretation. " Professor Greene realizes that only through understanding can we appreciate the beauty of music. Therefore he seeks to eradicate the old form of " dead level " singing and to put in its place a sympathetic rendition of the music studied. The results proclaim the power and personality of the teacher. What does it mean? It means that each year hundreds of teachers will carry the message to the farthest corners of the state. It means that the chil- dren of the most remote country district of Oklahoma may have life, and have it more abundantly. One Hundred Twenty-two 1920 J r I BRONZE BOOK) 1 C. S. N. QUARTETTE. The C. S.

In the little town of Harrison lived an especially prayerfully inclined Vicar, commonly called Vicar Hughes. Although he loved his prayer book and his early morning hour of devotion, he was very fond of sport. He had struck it rich in the Mangum field, which was just eight miles north of Gordon, which is between the two Burris (Boroughs) of Hunning- ton and Clayton. Previous to his good fortunes his wife had dressed in Lindsey Woolsey, but now her dresses were all Lacey. Now the Vicar had a friend by the name of Brashears, who was a very good Boatright and also an excellent Naylor. Both the Vicar and his wife were excellent Spearman, so they liked to tish for Herring, in fact for all the Finney tribe. So early of a morning the little town of Harrison was accus- tomed to see the two together, setting oft just as the Vail of night was lifting and he sun was Redding the sky. They were always accompanied by two dogs, one a St. Bernard, the other just a common Kerr, which would Barkett everything it saw. One day it actually did scare up a Covey of Quail. About noon they would return to town, stopping for lunch with the Wil- liamses, who were Sellards of refreshments and confectionery. From here they would go to one of the city Parks, where they enjoyed seeing the slender Oakes and Green Grass, and spending many hours gazing at one thing that was very attractive, a beautiful Post.

The Bronze and Blue was not scored on by a normal school in Oklahoma, hereby winning Normal School Championship, besides defeating all the other secondary schools by large scores. Defeated only by schools which are recognized as " out of our class, " we feel that we may well feel proud of our record made by the clean, stal- wart sons of the Bronze and Blue under the leadership of that splndid char- acter, Coach Wantland, who is both honored and almost worshipped by his men.

This team is said to be the strongest ol the fraternity teams of Oklahoma University. Everett Hafer, captain, resigned, and Crawford Spearman was elected t " succeed him. The men making up the teams are: Wilcoxin, Means and Hater, pitchers; Kidd, tirst base; Mangum, second base; Roland Lee, shortstop; Hughes, third base; Hughes and McClain, outfielders; Spearman, Courteney, Cotter and Bell utility men. All these men are working hard to get up a team that will defeat any team in the state. They all aspire to defeating the best in the state, and if we are not wrong they are going to do it. Mr. Otto may be depended upon to put out a team that is equal to all that we have claimed for it, because the men all like him and work to the best of their ability.

I ; ii i .-I Fori v-five u 1920 J r BRONZE As we go to press the tennis season has just dawned upon us. So far we have played Phillips University and played one game of singles with Southeastern State Normal in the normal school tournament at Norman. The latter tournament was postponed on account of rain, and will possibly he played at a later date. Spangler and Eaton have represented Central thus far this year. Spangler won in the singles with Southeastern, and he and Eaton won both singles and doubles with Phillips. Eaton defeated his opponent by the following score: 4 — 6, 5 — 1, and 6 — 4. Spangler won over his opponent by the score: 6 — 4, 3 — 6, 6 — l. Only one set of doubles was played. The score was 6 — 3 in Central ' s favor. While Central expects to have a team that will easily win the normal school championship, it is not the purpose of this school to develop a few who are especially proficient in the game, but rather to provide recreation for the large majority of the student body who enjoy playing. In this latter respect tennis comes nearer to reaching everyone than any other form of athletics. On any suitable afternoon e very court is occupied by both men and women, and large numbers are waiting their turn for the courts. Credit is given in tennis for physical training, but the big majority who play do it purely for the recreation and outdoor exercise. At present we have eight courts, all in fairly good condition and all equipped with new nets, in first-class condition in soon be here.

MITCHELL One of the most elaborate affairs ever given in Central State Normal was given Thursday evening, October 2, in honor of President and Mrs. Mitchell by the girls of the Shakespeare Club. Those in the receiving line with President and Mrs. Mitchell were Miss Ruby Canton, Mrs. Emma Estill and Miss Lillie Reed. The club rooms were beautifully decorated with masses of American Beauty roses and ferns. Punch was served to the guests upon their arrival, and each and every one was given a hearty welcome by the club girls. The " Get Acquainted " program was well carried out and every one be- came well acquainted. An ice course was served at the close of the evening to two hundred guests. The guest list included President and Mrs. Mitchell, members of the faculty, the football boys and the other clubs of the school. HALLOWE ' EN FESTIVAL One of the interesting events of the season occurred Thursday, Octo- ber 30, when the Tsa Mo Ga Club entertained the literary clubs and members of the faculty at a masquerade Hallowe ' en party. As the guests arrived they were ushered up the fire escape of the Old North Building by ghosts. At the top landing they were welcomed by the cold hand of a ghost and ushered into the festival room. The festival room was beautifully decorated in black and orange, with rows of autumn leaves and jack o ' lanterns arranged around the sides of the room. After the guests had been entertained by the ghosts and fortune tellers, they unmasked, found partners and linished the evening by folk dancing. At the hour of eleven a Hallowe ' en feast was served to 125 guests. L One Hundred Fifty 1920 c J SENIOR PARTIES The Senior Cla.ss of 1920 has given three most delightful parties this year — one each term. The first one m the fall was perfect in detail — about one hundred Seniors were present, and enjoyed the games and music. The room was beautifully decorated in the class colors and the refresh- ments were carried out in their colors — purple and gold. Guests besides the class parents were President and Mrs. Mitchell, Miss Coo ver and Mr. Seymour. The next party seemed to excel the first — it was the Easter party. Class colors and flowers were everywhere — and Easter decorations. One of the entertaining features was the Easter egg hunt, which afforded much pleasure. Several guests were present and on of the most delightful parties of the year was this one in the spring term. The last party of the Seniors, but by no means the least important, was the one given by the Seniors to the faculty Tuesday, May 18, from 4 to 6. It was beautiful in every appointment. The Shakespeare room was artistically decorated with ferns, spring flowers and Senior colors. In the receiving lines with the class officers were the class parents and President Mitchell. The orchestra played during the afternoon. Senior girls presided over the refreshments, and the Class of 1920 are to be congratulated upon their del ightful ways of entertaining.

MITCHELL GIVE RECEPTION The most delightful reception of the year was the one given by President and Mrs. Mitchell for the Senior class, on May 4. Receiving with President and Mrs. Mitchell were the Senior class parents, Mrs. Estill, Mr. Tourtellotte and Miss Wantland, and assisting in the reception room and dining room were members of the f:»:ulty. The residence was beautifully decorated in the class colors and class flowers, the purple and gold pansies. An orchestra furnished music through- out the evening, and later dainty refreshments were served. About l5o Seniors were present and enjoyed the hospitality of President and Mrs. Mitchell. RECEPTION Mrs. Emma Estill, Miss Wantland and Mr. Tourtollette gave a delightful reception to the Senior class Monday, the 1 9th, at 8 o ' clock. The reception room was beautifully decorated in Senior colors and masses of purple and yellow pansies. The evening was spent in playing games and singing class songs. One of the most interesting features of the evening was the special entertainment furnished by Ma, Pa and Aunt. At the close of the reception, dainty refreshments were served to ninety Seniors. The class colors were also carried out in this course. Our class mother, father and aunt have made things interesting for us all year and to them we owe much gratitude. L One Hundred Fifty-two J r !

TAFT u One Hundred Fifty-six u J r BRONZE THE PLAYS OF 1920 The plays that have been given during this year have been well selected, thoroughly prepared and presented in an excellent manner. The first of the season, " The Lost Pleiad ' ' was given in a beautiful and artistic way by the members of the T. O. K. Club, on the evening of December 17, 1919. The story, a Greek fantasy, was based on the old mythological story of the Pleiad, who came to earth to ascertain some knowledge of it. She chanced to see the King of Corinth as he slept by the side of a pool. The king, although he thought he had only dreamed about her, had sufficient faith to go to the place he was to meet her. A number of efforts were made to kill the king and to get the Pleiad to marry the villian. But all of the efforts were futile, and at the appointed time the king and the Pleiad met and were married. The annual play of the Shakespeare Club was given January 16, 1920. The club is composed of girls, and they made a study of the works of Shakes- peare. Once each year they present one of the best plays. This year the Merchant of Venice was given in an excellent manner by the girls of the club. All of the characters showed that they had dramatic talent and that they had been well trained, but those playing the parts of Shylock, Bassiano, Lancelot, Portia, Gratiano and Nerissa were among the best. The auditorium was crowded with people who were sent away happy and contented at the close of the evening March 2 2, 1920, because the Junior class furnished them with two hours of excellent entertainment in their de- lightful and happy class play, " The American. " Those who attended the Senior class play, " A Friend in Need, " on the evening of May 8, 1920, laughed until their sides ached before the excellent members of the cast had finished dealing out their comical and clever bits of mirth and wit, in the most interesting and humorous situations, which were very cleverly created. It is seldom that such good, wholesome lessons are taught in the delightful manner as those found in the excellent presentation of this final attraction of the season given by local talent — the Senior Class of 1920.

Ji As the United States is the melting pot, Of those from a foreign land, As America welds the iron hot, Into grains of golden sand, So Central School in the midst of our state, Melts ignorance of youth before too late. And from out of the embryonic crystals, Of which Oklahoma ' s sons are a part, Central has delved ' neath the thistles, And molded a soul and a heart, And we Seniors stand a living test To go out as proof of Central ' s best. So when we pass the gate of our Senior year, To the life on the other side, When we meet grave dangers with many a fear, In this land where we reside, May we just remember our college true, Aiyl do the best she would have us do. — Pauline Weant.

I lundrei] Sixty-four 1 J r ' BRONZE BOOK] framing Ikfjool A training school, at its best, is the natural center of a normal school ' s activities. It is mure than a place where professional craftsmanship is exem- plified and mechanical performance exalted above its rightful position. Con- troling forces are the subjects of deepest study. In a training school it is understood, as it is nowhere else, that the study of the psychological aspects of teaching can come to its full fruition only through illustration and use. The knowledge of method in the abstract cannot be adequate from the standpoint of the needs of the amateur teacher until the school group has been a subject of study. The training school affords a medium through which a study can be made of the different school subjects and the reactions children make to them in actual teaching situations. The training school children at Central constitute an unusualh cosmo- politan group. In a survey made of the training school a few years ago, the children were found to represent not only every section of Oklahoma, but also many other states. They had been born in seventeen different states and two countries. The main group, of course, were born in Oklahoma. An exact statement of the figures is as follows: Oklahoma 55 Missouri 3 Ohio 3 Texas 3 Mississippi 2 Alabama 1 Kansas 1 Mexico 1 Pennsylvania l Illinois 1 Indiana 1 Totals — Oklahoma 55 Other places 17 The nativity of the fathers of the children was: American, 65; English, 3; German, 3 ; Swiss, I. Nativity of the mothers was; American, ( ' ; Ger- man, 3. From the facts of the survey, it was fair to conclude that the group was cosmopolitan and that a great variety of types of children was represented. These various types that are found in our training school attord a most de- sirable pedagogical labortory in which the multiplicity oi responses to teaching situations can be made the subject of careful analysis and study.

The opportunity was there, you grasped it and have produced something worth while, something the Class of 1920 may well be proud of and in years to come, in glancing over this Annual, 1 will give you many pleasant memories.

You have worked months, and now in your hands you haye what all labor brings — " results, the material.

For years it has been the official publication of the school and always is it tilled with interesting articles concerning the school life. It presents helpful articles from members of the faculty. It gives stories, poems and items of general interest from students. The paper is edited by the head of the English department, Professor F. C. Oakes. However, he is ably assisted by a committee composed of other members of the faculty, and as every article published has the endorse- ment of the president, The Vista truly speaks. The mechanical work is done by students in the print shop connected with the normal, and the kind of work done this year has been worthy of praise. The editions have appeared bi-weekly, and are eagerly awaited by the students and several hundred readers who have gone out to teach, but feel an interest in the welfare of C. S. N. During this year there has been two or three souvenir editions, but the one which attracted special attention and is commonly regarded as the best Vista of the year, was the New Year ' s number, edited by the Senior class. President Mitchell gladly gave his permission, and Clay Kerr was appointed editor. Being the first edition of the new year, an effort was made to empha- size the idea of new things and the determination to make a better paper than any before it. State Superintendent R. H. Wilson contributed a most excellent article expressing his appreciation of Central State Normal and of the Senior class of this year. President Mitchell, Class Mother Estill and Class Father Tourtellotte voiced their best wishes to the class in most excellent articles. Members of the faculty and of the class wrote some special articles of in- terest to the school. A column of jokes, some historical data not generally known, and a roster and group picture of the Senior class featured the special " Senior Vista. " The Vista is a potent force in the activities of this school. Through its excellent staff and corps of contributors, it keeps schools and teachers over the state in connection with events here and scatters abroad the doctrine of pro- gressiveness as exemplified in Oklahoma ' s oldest and best normal school.

There was one great mystery, That 1 never have surmised, They were both great missionaries. Who wouldn ' t be surprised? Mother Estill seemed so happy, Teaching those heathen to play. While Father Tourtellotte lead all meetings, Taught them how to sing and pray. The strangest thing was the climate, Why, it almost made me faint. And that was why Ma ' s hair was red, And Pa ' s as black as ink. This made them look quite different, Yet, they seemed much the same, For their ideas still looked forward Hoping soon to gleam in fame. L One Hundre !

And bright and glittering array, ct a fantasy on campus green, Where one who passes may view the scene? Tis the fairy night by the Normal Tower, Where the ghosts of a sweet dim past Unite with the shapes of the living hour, For the Senior joys will not last, And so for one last glorious time Their spirits frolic in the bright moonshine. So thus it happened that 1 came by Just as the fairy enchantment fell, And being outside, me they did not spy And I was not cast under the spell. I stood apart by the long hedge wall And watched the Seniors, one and all. " Tis a wedding scene, " said E!ma, the Queen, As she stood by Mr. Dolan, " That tonight we shall screen on nature ' s green, To set the ball a rollin. ' ' Then they stepped aside, She waved her hand, He Beck-oned the bride to meet her, • ' Tis leap year, " said he, " You soon will see. Master Hicks will Leeper. " Parsons tied the Gordon knot, As he leaned against a Pest, Preaching his philosophy as well as the text To the therein assmbled host. Then when the wedding bells began to toll He gave to them the legal Roll. A Jay sang in a Hawthorne bush, A wonderful Virginia song, As he hung his nest and fastened it tight ' Neath the shelter of a convenient pron . While above the canopy overhead Was a shady curtain to see. For a spider had fastened his delicate Webb From the Betenbough of an Atteriberry tree.

Golda Haire and eyes so Frank Filled with their Hazel gleam. The groom was dressed in many Coates Made by an up-to-date Taylor, While his bride was Dowd in somber Brown, But still he was glad to take her. After the sermon had made them one They had a regular Fry, The guests were fed on Milo and Com By Morgan from on high. And during the feast the merriment brew They danced to fife and song, When hush, the vision was almost o ' er, They could not now stay long. I listened and heard the witches cry, The Barket of a tiny Kerr. The Seniors must leave with many a sigh And things be just as they were. For Aurora was painting the horizon now With colors of heavenly bliss, And Robert of Lincoln chirped from a bough, " 1 wish I could Seymour of this. " As the clock struck four, From the lone pine tree, In the midst of Central ' s lane, Mother Estill whispered her wishes true, And Father Tourteldove cooed the refrain. " Goodbye, our Seniors, we love you all. In the work of future years, Be true to the motto of Central ' s Hall, Then you need have no fears.

It promised to be one of the most interesting years in the history of the school. Students were arriving on each car and, as usual, there was a crowd ol people down to see them come in. Among those arriv- ing was Betty Ann Taylor. She was a country girl and dressed in such a pecu- liar way that there was much speculation as to who she was. She wore a dress that had long since lost its color and had probably descended from sev- eral generations. Her hat was out of fashion, and her shoes were old and worn. She carried an old-fashioned shopping bag and a large umbrella that had seen some service in its day and time. She looked all about her with wondering eyes and finally decided to follow the crowd. As she walked by a young man and young woman who were well dressed and very much occupied with each other, the young man suddenl) exclaimed, " Foi land sake, Inez, look what ' s com, ' " Upon this they both giggled and hurried on. The young lady to whom this remark had been directed was Inez Water-, a bold, dashing, dark-eyed, beautiful girl, wdio was the leader of her set. She was the type of girl who admired hersell possibly more than anyone else in the world unless it be lack Foster, with whom she was very much in love. Inez had probably never had a serious thought in her head. Lessons were the least of her thoughts and Jack was the most. Inez had the will and determina- tion to get a thing when she went after it, and she wanted .lack Foster more than she had ever wanted anything in her young life. lack had the feeling that Inez was rather necessary to his existence, so the world pronounced them lovers, .lack was an amicable, good-looking youth, a leader in athletics and general favorite among the boys, and espe- cially among the girls. The only worn Jack had in his young life was the fact that Inez had a terrible temper and an ugly disposition. He always con- soled himself with the thought that she was very pretty, and that he ' ■ ith her. so, ol course, a man could afford to take a great deal of! oi a girl he loved. Then, too, Inez would probably change when she grew older. When Inez and Jack reached home that evening, Jack decided to join his pal, Tom Brooks, so away he went. Inez, being rather tired retired to her room. s she was going in the house she said to herself: " Wonder who my roommate will be this year " s soon as she opened the door a cry escaped her. There on the floor sat Hetty Ann, baggage and all. There were various articles of clothing scattered from one end to the other. the umbrella had found it a home in one corner, and of all things, the dilapi- L ■ if undred N ' inol . 1920 c J r BRONZE ' _BQQK] JEWELRY College and Club Pins made to order, any design.

" Alter Betty had talked gibly for several min- utes Inez decided that it was about all she could stand at one time, so she asked Betty to leave of) any time it suited her. Bett} took no offense at this, but began humming and arranging her clothes in the closet. Inez weni immediately to Dixie Harper ' s room, where a bunch of girls had assembled and told them what fate had sent her in the shape of a roommate. " You ought to see her, " and she proceeded to describe her as she looked. breathed a sign of pity for Inez. On account ol her odd ways and queer clothes, Betty nn was left much to herself. It seemed that the girls with whom Inez, chummed rather looked with disdain on Betty, and urged on by Inez, made existence rather difficult for Betty. Bett} was a good-natured girl who never seemed to mind how the world rolled on. She was studious and soon won the hearts of her teachers. This also helped the girls to dislike her and the} took every oppor- tunity to offend her. She was the subject of many jokes and pranks among them. One night Vivian Smart, a great admirer and follower of Inez, planned with Inez to play a joke on countrified Betty Ann. Vivian was a girl who had little will power of her own. Her greatest ambition was to be as much like Inez as possible. If Inez had told her to jump in the river, she would have it. Inez tolerated her because Vivian told, in no small way, that her papa was by far the richest man in her home town, that thej had three serv- ants and four large cars, and that she was engaged to a rich, young doctor by the name of John Piatt. Vivian was one ol the soft, clinging type of gin who would have been shocked at anyone ' s thinking her anything but a prude. She assumed an air of great dignity and was one of the most envied girls in school mi account of her supposed wealth. If anyone had intimated il ' .n Vivian would have stooped to pla tricks, she would have melted away. " What shall we do to have some fun out of Bett} " said Inez. " I et ' s plan a good one, " said Vivian, " because most of the girls are going out to- night. " The two girls decided that Inez would dress up like a man, go to Betty ' s window, hold up a gun and tell her to put up her hands. I his they did about ten-thirty when Hetty was busy studying. Betty .Ann, hearing a noise, looked up, and when Inez said " hands up, " Bett} made two leaps, gave two loud screams, cleared the bed and went racing down stairs. She fell into a tub of water at the foot ol the stairs which had been prepared by the thoughtful Vivian. Just then all the girls came in, in time to see the fun. Inez and Vivian came in, too, all dressed as if the} had been out. There was much guessing as t who did it. Vivian assumed such an air ol dignit} that no one suspicioned her, and Inez was above suspici m, too, as she had been with Vivian. Only one girl suspected who it was. This was Phoebe Foster, lack ' s sister. In the meantime she and Betty Ann had become great friends. Phoebe saw right through Inez ' s shamming.

She knew Bett} Ann would never consent to the plan, so she plotted alone. She was a jolly, vivacious, warm-hearted girl, and the thought of avenging Betty made her heart rejoice. The next night there was to be a dance. Phoebe knew .lack had planned on taking Inez, and that Inez was very anxious to go, as there was reported to be a crowd ol good-looking boys there from the city. That evening, as Inez was dressing " , she happened to think of something to tell Vivian. lack had said to her that day, " Inez, you are getting prettier every day. " Awa siie ran to tell Vivian. Phoebe, watching her chance, hurried into the room, picked up something from the dresser and hurried on. Inez returned and started to dress, hut a look ol startled amazement spread over her face. " Oh, where is it? I am sure it was lying here only a minute ago; it surely couldn ' t have walked out. " Then began the search. Every girl in the house turned out to help. They looked high and low. At last, when the clock struck eight, Inez, look- ing like lost hope, said, " 1 give up. " She walked to the phone and called Jack, and said in no very amiable voice, " Jack, 1 am very ill, I can ' t go, " and hung up the receiver. Inez could not go lor the simple reason that she had no hair to go witn her. Her switch had disappeared. She put on her nightcap and went to bed. Jack, talking later to his friend lorn, said, " Say, isn ' t it queer tmw some women get sick mi quickly? Guess I ' ll take my sis, " and he did. Bett} would have received the blame, but she happened to be awa_ that night. Inez raved and chafed till the old negro cook said: dun b ' lie e Miss Inez will tit herself to def. " The switch as mysterious!} reappeared as it had disappeared. CHAPTER 2. iicr this event, everything went on quietly for nearly a month. Inez finally outlived what she termed to be her disgrace, but she didn ' t forget it. About this time an incident happened which had a great effect on Vivian Smart. One night while the girls were eating supper, the landlady came to the d ■ and said, " Betty .Ann, there ' s the best-looking young man in the par- lor to see you. " " Who is he? what does he look like ' are you sure Tie wants me. " said surprised Betty. " Oh, sit down, Betty, she ' s made a mis- take of course; no nice looking young man would ever wanta see you, " said Dixie Harper, " he probably wants to see me, tor instance. " By this time Bett} had Started tor the parlor. There was a general commotion in the dining room, chairs were turned, the last tew pieces of cake were snatched up and as suddenl} mane away with. The girls prepared to see who it was. Those who did get a peep came back i i tell the others that he surely was keen, the best looking young man they ' d ever put their eyes around. Inez and Vivian were the last in turn to get their peep. When Vivian saw him she exclaimed in one breath, " John Piatt, " and ever} girl murmured, " Oh!

While all the girls were trying to collect their senses and keep down their curiosity, the door suddenly opened. Before the girls could escape, Betty said: " Phoebe, come here and meet my Uncle John. " Phoebe, with a scorch- ing look at the girls, went into the parlor. Uncle John was good looking, in fact, handsome, and had a smile that easily won his way. Phoebe thought right then and there, " He ' s mine it I never get him. " What ran through his mind was something like this, " I ' ve found just the kind of girl I ' ve been look- ing for. " " Say, don ' t hold her hand all day, Uncle John. " Uncle Joiin smiled at Phoebe, gave her hand a little squeeze, and dropped it. Uncle John stayed three days, and those were happ) days for him and Phoebe. The other girls were stricken with envy. Vivian was heard to make this remark: " Phoebe must have known about her uncle or she never would have taken up with Betty. " Ellen Gray, one of Hetty ' s friends replied: " Well, Vivian, seems to me that 1 know someone who didn ' t know as much about Uncle John as she thought she did. " Vivian had gone down one notch in the estimation of every one except Inez. When John Piatt went home he carried Phoebe ' s promise to marry him when school was out. As time went on, Betty, dressed more like the other girls, under Phoebe ' s influence. Some of the country remained, however. This was brought out one night at a class part)-. Everyone was dancing, but l ' .ett Ann, who tood in one corner looking on. Betty had only been to a few parties in her life, and had never danced. At last Jim Smart, who was a bra- and had more nerve than common sense, thought it would be rather funny to see what kind of an out Betty would make dancing. Sauntering over to her side, he said, " Will you dance with me? " Petty was on the point of refusing when she hap- pened to think that the motto at the house was, " Never turn down a chance where a man ' s concerned, " said " Yes. " They were waltzing, and it looked easy. Never before was a tl as slick. After a i i v turns she grew dizzy, caught her foot in her dress ana down she went. Inez was dancing near with Jack and before the} could help themselves, Hetty clutched Inez as she fell, and rip went Inez ' s dress. Betty was a strong girl and she fell so hard against Jim, who was a spindle legged sort of individual, that she knocked the breath out of him. lack was the onlj one who controlled himself and his temper in the next tew minutes. He thought at lust he would laugh, but before he did Inez burst forth in all the splendor of her wrath. " You little impudent upstart from the coun- try, you don ' t deserve to be where people are civilized; why don ' t you go to the country where you belong! " These and man) other insults were hurled on pool ' Hetty. " Come, Inez, let ' s go and walk around, " said Jack, who thought this to be the best course. Now Jack was a true gentleman at heart, and something in Hetty ' s big blue eyes appealed to him. He looked at Hetty and said in a whisper, " I ' m sorry, really I am, " then he looked right into her eyes an(S smiled. That smile had cheered Bett) more than once.

" He really hadn ' t intended to say it, but he had thought it too loudly. In a minute Inez ' s black eyes shot around. " Sir, what did I under- stand ' von to say? " " W-e-11, you see, it ' s like this, 1 believe I said I like blue skies better than dark ones, I believe mosl everyone does, don ' t you: " Noth- ing more was said because Inez wasn ' t sure just what he had said. The thought went through her mind that she would take her spite out on Hett Ann. .lust a few days before the Christmas holidays, Phoebe rushed into Betty ' s room. " Betty, begin to pack your duds, you ' re going home with me and stay two whole weeks. " This Betty did. When Inez found that Hetty was going in the Foster home, her anger knew no bounds. She had longed for thai same invitation herself. Phoebe delighted in making her feel left out, which she surely did. Beth Ann won the heart of Mr. and Mrs. Foster, She en herself to the utmost, she unconciously won the heart of someone else, too, during that vacation. lack had by this time decided tor sure that he liked blue eyes best.

Mr. Foster remarked that they were kind of rushing thin--, nut he guessed love at lirst sight was as good a- any. CM ITFR 3. After the holidays, time moved on swiftly toward spring. Betty became more and more popular and attractive. There was a race on. Inez was after lack, and lack was after Hetty. Inez wanted money nd position. She knew Jack could give her both. She used every art to win him over, to outward appearances, seemed unconcerned in the matter, but she .it ten wondered if Jack did love her or Inez the best. May Day drew near. Betty was chosen May Queen, much to the chargin of Inez and her friends. The day came, everything was in readiness and wait- ing on the May Queen. Hetty ' s May Queen outfit had mysteriously disap- peared about an hour before the performance was to begin. Everyone twined out to help hunt and there was far more excitement than when Inez lost her switch. Betty was heart-broken to think the festival would have to be postponed on her account. Just as she was giving up in despair, Lucy, the negro cook, came running in with a big bundle. " Heah dey is, Miss Betty, daf dar Vivian and Inez dun sun and hid ' em, but 1 found dem for you, honey. " The Ma day festival was a great success. When Jack heard what Inez had done, lie told her that In ' guessed that ended everything between them.

About a month after the festival ,the girls all decided to go to Hello (sle on a picnic and spend the day swimming and boating. Late in the after- noon, when the girls were a long distance from the boathouse, the boat Inez and Vivian were in turned over and threw both girls into the water. The water was ver deep. The girls all stopped as though afraid to move. t last some one raised a cry for help. Bett) took the situation in at a glance and the next instant she dived into the water. It seemed minutes to those watching before two heads emerged and Vivian was safe. Not a word was spoken, the girls scarcely breathed. Down dived Hetty once again and brought up water-soaked Inez. Inez prof- ited by her ducking, for it seemed to cool her temper for a while. The first thing she was heard to say was: " Betty, can you ever forgive me 5 " Vivian was a close second,, " Surely I can, " said Betty. " I would have done as much for anyone. That ' s one of the things 1 learned to do on the farm. If you ' ll come out some time I ' ll teach you to swim. " Inez married Jim Smart soon after this episode and found when it was too late that Vivian and Jim had only dreamed that they had a fortune, four cars and three servants. Another wedding took place in June, that of Betty and Jack. After they were married Betty said to Jack: " Do you suppose you ' ll ever set tired ot blue eves 5 " Jack said tenderlv back, " Not as lon° as I know blue from black, Betty.
