G. I. S. We trust that the outlines will be clear enough to call up many fond remem- brances in the minds of our schoolmates and to give to our other friends an image of the life at Montevallo. To those of the girls, faculty members and officers who have so kindly aided us in the preparation of this volume, we extend our sincere thanks. We hope all of you, dear readers, may find pleasure in traveling with us as we pass once again thru the memory lands of lig iis and shadows.

Ami did -()U wnnder h(i " that tiny, har l knot Wduld ever be worth an_ ' thing to an " - liody? (.)f course, if yon were versed in the knowledge of ri])ening fruit, yon had faith to l)elie ' e that that peach could de clop ; otherwise, _ -ou would ha ' e turned away in coru at the idea. The same piMuciple vas involved, when, in the earh ' da ' s of Septemlier, 1904, eighty or more girls, as green as any peach could possibly lie, entered the Freshman class of the Alabama ( iirK ' Industrial School. ' Idie meml.iers of the facully, who had ])reviousl}- succeeded in developing " similar specimens, bra ely hojied for the best; every one else gazed in pity and scorn upon the poor, miserable l " " reshmen. The year ' s struggle was a noble one, IjiU the tone of green was still so evident that onl the wisest of the wise still hoped for mature Seniors from this unpromising beginning. As man ' as tift ' of the class members stemmed the terrible tide of mid- term and final examinations, and September (jf 1903 found a well organized class of fort) ' vSophomores in their places and readv for what might come. With energy and enthusiasm they attacked the bulwarks and breastworks of Caesar ' s Commentaries: ])lunged heaillong into the mighty tiile of American literature, .-md gained the shores worn out and almost overcome, but bearing high and di) in their minds most i iil recollections of the wonderful vision of Sir ivaimfal and Snow-bound. With like earnestness and zeal they applied themseh ' es to ancient histor ' , and, although many were overcome b - the Janu- ary examinations, tluw proudly rose again and |)ressed forward with " unabated zeal, " receiving at the end of the year the welcome plaudit of " well-done. " All these struggles were not without their reward; the wise ones before the end id ' the year ' s work were beginning to nod their heads at one another and to glance a|iprovingl ' at the So])hs as the} ' passed — the green was slowly l)ut sunh ' fading aw ' a ' . In Se] lember of 1906 a class of thirty Juniors met in the now well-known halls and ])ledged their faith to one another and to the whole class; the determination was strong to make tlie class of ii)o8 the l)est th. ' it e ' er left the halls of the . . (1. 1. S. In a siu-prisingly short time thirty minds were grasping eagerly all tangible facts of ] ' " nglish literatm-e, delving deep into the m3 ' steries of geometry, determined to pro ' e their abilit) ' to make as straight lines and as accurate angles as any boy that ever went to school : and struggling determinedly to keep the law of Charles and that of Hoyle separated. Soon they were pondering seriously over the great truths of I " ,thics in the world of human beings, and at the same time gazing through the mirror of Botany into the very face of Nature. The ]3ale green tinge was soon • superseded by the white flower of ever-growing purity, and the exercise from long tramps over the hills in search of Botany specimens, brought a faint, healthy flush over the whiteness. September of 1907 found twenty-two girls of the class of 1908 back ;)n the A. G. I. S. grounds. These were soon joined b)- three former members of the class of 1907, who, in order to spend another year in making their culture broader, had decided to divide their course and throw in their lot with the class of 1908. The jo}- caused by the reception of these three members was soon counterbalanced b ' the withdrawal of three of the original members, who decided to divide their Senior work and join the class of 1909. The best wishes of the whole class go with them in their work. One fact alone reconciles the class to their loss, and that is the realization of the blessing that another year of work at the A. G. I. S. will bring to them. For him who imagines that the life of a Senior is an easv one the challenge is read}-, " Come and see. " Before the twenty-two were fairly arri e(l and preparing to face the worst, the flood began. ( )n it came: wave upon wave of Knglish composition, almost overpowering with its weight of description and narration the dauntless band. Then after the scarcely perceptible hill of mid-term examinations, exposition and argument poured down in torrents. Even as they battled with this terrible flood, the monster shark of Trigonometry opened its powerful jaws and ()nly the most heroic efforts were able to overcome him and carry the weary strugglers into safer waters. Then came the mighty crash of Chemistrv with its memor}--taxing laws and courage-testing experi- ments and ex])losions. accom]3anied b_ ' vivid flashes of Psychology, keeping " the whole intellectual atmosphere lurid ith brightness, which tantalized even while it showed the way. Xor did the batteries of the warship History fail to open fire on the brave strugglers. iille}- after volley poured forth from the Settlement turrets and Revolutionary port holes. Time after time did some head disappear under fire onl_ ' to reappear with renewed determination in every line of the face. And twice a week, amid the storm, did the frog Plant Culture croak out its warnings in order that the prospective husbands, for whom there was no time to be on the look out, might be preserved against sour soil and careless pruning. And iimv. at the end of the session 1907-08. the A. G. I. S. is presenting to the State ot " Ahihama twenty-two Seniors. To he sure there are little, " yreeii.

Alinnie might well have been called Truth, for, crusheil to earth, she rises again. She is just a jolly gootl comrade at all times. Her high temper is used to good advantage. Minnie is the happy possessor of an excellent alto voice, which she uses to good efifect in the Y. W. C. A. choir. On the whole, she has proved herself a good all-round student with enotigh good na- ture and vim to make her school days eas) ' ones. " All atom iiiiiller.

Although " Grizzie " is an atom, she is a very important one ; she enters into the composition of most of the elements of school life. She is an excellent Y. W. C. A. worker, a notable club member, and a better cook. Her work in the domestic science department has fitted her for one of .-Mabama ' s best housekeepers. Her knowledge of home sanitation is a dread and marvel to the whole Senior class. 25 -The ■V ,v Sara Crawford Ddthax, Ai.a. rest inuy misuii and ' n ' clcoinc: ;cc iiiusiciiins L ' liow.

A young lady of most innocent and harmless appearance, but " don ' t you go for to argify with her; " she is very fond of her own opinion and always expresses it freely. She has a charming voice and, as she is cultivating it carefully, we e-xpect to hear some day of lier unparalleled suc- cess as a vocalist. She is a faitliful Y. ' .

Lulu ' s diamond ring has excited not a little suspicion, and we think we have a right to be- lieve that she is one of the number who have engaged Sara to play marches. Lulu is a good student, a good player, and a good friend; what more need be said of anybody? She is the latest reference for trigonometric functions and mathematical knowledge in general. 27 Eunora Farris Elba, Ala. - " For her own [ ' crsoii. It beggared all deseril fluii. " Class Vice-President ' 06- ' O7, Secretary Castalian Literary Society ' US; First Assistant Business Mgr. Chiaroscuro. Eunora is one of the best basket-ball players on tlie Senior team ; she made a lasting record in the Junior-Senior game Thanksgiving, 1907. She is much interested in all Chemistry experi- ments, although she has not yet lost her head in any explosions. Eunora is a companion- piece for Lulu ; she has a marked preference for Trigonmetry and likes nothing Ijetter than to neglect sleep, meals, other lessons — anything — in order that she may apply herself to that study.

These Domestic Science pupils always arouse our suspicions. It is said that when a woman lias learned the secret of good cookery, she has almost learned the secret of the way to a man ' s heart: so we surmise just a little. Mattie Estelle is one of our jolliest, happiest, girls whose presence means much to any and i-verv member of the class. 28 Beula Elizabeth Garrett Tallassek. Ai.a.

Strangely enough, I ' lUa combines with her ;ith- lelic enthusiasm a m.arked preference for ro- mance; nothing ouwiile of the liall held i)lcascs her better than ,a well-wrillen romance, whether in the form id ' a short story or a novel.

Remembering the old saying that if a person looked into a well at twelve o ' clock on Ia ' the first he would sec his furtime, I determined to get a glimpse into the future. I looked intii the well, Ijut the water Imiked as it alwa_ ' s did, and I was ahout to turn awa ' , disappointed with the result, when suddenly 1 saw a bright spot in one side of the water. . s 1 watched it grow, it took the shape of a great stone house. Peo])le with traveling bags or suit cases were passing in and out. I soon discovered that it was just across the street from the Hotel St. George in Alontevallo, and in front ui it was an immense sign-board which read " HvGia.v Hotel, Kxowx F. r axd Xkar for Its Pr. c- TICK 01 Ho.Mi-: S. xtT. Tiox. " At that ninment a short, slender figure, clad in white, appeare l in the doorway, and 1 recognized Elizabeth llullock, the pro- prietress of the h(jtel. Then this changed and a street in the slums of a large city appeared and out of a red brick building came Sara Crawford with a roll of music under her arm, a child holding to each finger, and about a score of other children dancing around her. This scene did not change but seemed to move on and on until I saw the heart of the hustling, Inistling city. Then it grew dark and electric lights were turned on. jVll the people seemed to be going in the same direction; fol- lowing them I came to a theatre and when the curtain arose onl - three persons came on the stage, two ladies and ine gentleman. ( Ine of the ladies, who was rather small, took her place at the piano, while the other, who was tall and slender, walked with the gentleman to the edge of the stage. As the lady at the piano turned her head toward the audience, the light flashed on her tresses of spun gold, revealing Kathleen Shivers. Glancing at the program, held by the lad ' nearest me, I read that the songs were Kathleen ' s own compositions, which were " melodious, tender, and inspiring. " Hut I had no more time to notice Kathleen, for Dais_v Dunlap and Mr. B., her husljand, had begun to sing. As I listened, I was astiinished ! Coidd it be true? Lo ! Daisy had cultivatec ' the Venice IJrice Miller willed her and was singing soprano and alto, while Mr B. sang tenor. Again the view changed, and this time it was the buildings of the A. G. I. b, that greeted my sight. ISut the place evidently intended for my benefit was the oratory department : for there standing by a desk was L ' rsula Delchamps in- structing a class in reading, while Aliss Hayes gave a private lesson in an ad- joining room. As the water moved, there arose a small cottage surrounded by fiowers. But w hat a peculiar house ! So much glass ! A woman stood polishing one 37 of the large French windows. When she let her arm fall to her side, the dimpled face of Liila Edens was frowning at a fly-speck which was out of her reach. To be sure, Lula was now Mrs. Glass, hence the significance of the building material used in her home. Just then she darted awa_v from the window, for a coU]jle was coming up the walk. The lad}- wore a gre}- traveling suit and the gentleman carried a suit-case. Lula ran ddwn the walk exclaiming, " O, Eunora, I was afraid you had decided not to stop to see me. " Just then, Eunora Farris dropped her umbrella and as the gentleman picked it up, a shower of rice fell out. I.ula ' s cottage grew dim and then became a large home with a long, shady lawn in front. In a moment a high trap drawn by a spirited black horse dashed around the corner and stopped at the gate : and as the gentleman helped the lad - out, he said, " Alattie Estelle, dear, I have to be back in my office at one o ' clock, as 1 have an engagement ftjr that time with the President of the First National Hank. " " ' ery well, " she answered, " I shall have Mary serve lunch at once. " As ; Ir. and Airs. C. disappeared through the door, two daintilv dressed girls came down the street, eagerly talking. One was saving to the other, " O, lleula ( iarrett ; 1 envy you. Just think! you made the highest grades of anyone at the L ' niversity this year, and you have your tliploma. Now you are ready for a good time, while I am still in school. Your uncle told me you were going to Europe with him. I wish I could go too. " Next, the water turned a greenish blue, with waves dashing t(.) and fro ; there came into view a Ward Line steamer, its decks dotted with passengers reclining in steamer chairs. Near the stern sat Janig Haggard and she was haggard, too. " Yes, " she panted, " this is my first day on deck since we sailed out of New York harlxir. If 1 get to Havana alive, I am going to rest a good long time before starting home. ( )ur jihysician said I needed a change of climate, so Air. I larri on is taking me to Cuba, and if it doesn ' t kill me, I shall be surprised. " Now, instead of a rolling sea, I see a stretch of prairie country through which there was a long black thread — a railroad. Out of the distance, a train roars ]3ast me, but it does not pass too rapidly for me to see Willie Jenkins in the buffet talking across a table to a girl somewhat younger than herself. " Yes, Louise, if nothing happens and 1 take ni ' degree at the L niversity of California next spring, I shall help }i:)U in the summer s(.i you will not have a hard time your first year. " Following the railroad toward the sunrise, the water showed an eastern town on whose outskirts there was a Iiasket-ball ground where a game was at its most interesting point. It was a professional game between girls. Just then the left-hand goalsman tossetl the 1)all into the l)asket and the spectators yelled, " Hurrah for Ella Massey ! Massey! Massey! The best player ever! " The South appeared again — Alabama. Lillian Me ' ay stood in a dry- goods store talking to the chief clerk. " Please don ' t be late for supper, Archie. I shall see that it is ready by six o ' clock. Do not keep it waiting for I have piomised to sit up with that sick child again. " 1 held ni ' breath, wondering what would happen to the other members of the class, but I did not hold it long; for out of the water arose an immense Western ranch. In one corner of the ranch, surrounded by cotton-wood trees, was an o ld rambling house, and at the door-step was a saddled Texas pon} . s a tall, slender woman mounted the horse, she gathered up the reins and said, 38 " (. " ome up, T.ightfoot ! I want to get to Uncle ' s house in thirty minutes. " Instantly I knew the low, timid, hesitating voice to be Ida McRee ' s. Again Alabama greeted my eyes, but this time the town was Tallassee. Coming down the north road was a young woman wearing a sun-bonnet to ])rotect her face from the hot sun. She sat in a buggy drawn by a jogging m i!e which moved so slowl} ' that the boxes of apples, peaches, vegetables, and ' .he crate of chickens were n(jt disturbed. Florence Patterson owned a truck fanu and zeas her ozeii peddler. Alelodious music floated up out of the well and caught my ear. First it was one voice: then it was followed by a chorus of voices. Then arose the room of a high schnul filled with large boys and girls. Uu the front black-board was the music of a patriotic song and nearby was a teacher, pointer in hand, indicating a certain note. " What is it? Every one of ' ou knows. " Near the back of the room a voice answered, " It is do. Miss Patton. " " Yes, " said Eola Fatten, " but sing it. " As the fifty voices sang do in as many different tones and keys. Miss Patton covered her ears with her hands to shut out the awful discortl. Suddenly the well began to rumlile anil a terrific gale blew up into my face. Dimly in the distance 1 saw a speck which gradually tui.ik im the shape of p runaway buckboard. Chickens and pigs were excitedly fleeing in all directions from the oncoming danger. As it drew near, I perceived what ap- peared to be Jack Spratt and his wife. In vain was Jack swinging back on the lines, his feet firmly planted against the dashboard: while his wife sat placidly bouncing as they bumped over stones. As the_ ' passed me the doleful sound of a church bell pealed forth, and Lockey Posey, for it was she, exclaimed, " Give him the rein. Jack, or we. shall be late! " The next I was to learn of was Fanny Rosson. In an old fashioned library, where the large wood fire gave forth a cheerful ray, Fanny with her nose glasses still on her right shoulder, was curled up in a grandfather ' s chair, reading " David Copperfield " with much gusto. In an airy kindergarten containing about twenty small boys and girls, Clara Thompson was telling a fairy story while the children listened, their mouths wide open and their eyes as large as saucers. In another room of the same building. Genie Waldrop was patiently trying to teach a child to count " One, two, three, four, " and strike a key of the piano at the same time. ' iolent fumes stirred the water and I perceived the characteristic odor of cabbage, accompanied b} ' the faltering melody of " Home, Sweet Home, " rendered bv a phonograph. There immetliately arose for my inspection the cool, neat dining-room and adjacent hot kitchen of a tenement house. Impa- tienth- walking around the dining-room was a small man, fuming because his dinner was not ready. Clad in an enveloping white apron, the rounded figure of label Wilson was anxiously bending over a pot of half-cooked cabbage and a pan of frying sausage. The man walked to the kitchen door and peered in : as Mabel looked up her face became — but here the water was disturbed by the ascent of the elevator and I turned awa_ ' wonilering what the well would have predicted as to my own future. 39 " As You Like It.

R. 46 Examination Questions for Teachers S a class, we believe in a fair exchange ; we think that when op- portunity offers, it is on!)- right that we should exert ourselves in behalf of those who have worked faithfully for our welfare. Therefore, we have, without a murmur, burned our midnight oil in the preparation of the following examination questions for the teachers who have so kindly prepared like questions for us. If some members of the faculty are overlooked, they must remember that as separate sets of questions have to be made for every one, two or three teachers, it is almost impossible to attend to every one. We ask the teachers concerned to answer the questions, indorse the papers properly, sign the pledge, and hand the papers to our president, ? Iiss Florence Patterson: MATHEMATICS. MISS CALLEN.

" 56 Not Because Your Face is Fair ISTER, Sister, what ' s that lAd song Hobby ' s a-singing down stairs now? Listen! " As I paused in nn- rca(Hng, I lieard linhhx ' shouting joy- fully: " Sweet Marie, come to me! Come to me, sweet Marie: " then his voice lingered exultingly on the next: " Xot because your face is fair, love, to see — " then he rei eated the strain, only to be silenced in the end by Father. Looking at I ' hil ' s face, an l hearing Father peremptorily tell Lobby to be silent, was enough to convince me that something unusual had taken place, so I laid aside my book and said: " Come here, Lhil, and tell Sister what is the matter. " " Well, " he began, " it ' s Bobb} ' — that ' s what ' s the matter. He ' s always taking — taking — tak — " " Advantage? " I snp])lied. " Yes, he ' s always taking advantage, ' cause he ' s twelve and I ' m just going on ' leven. AVhile ago, I got mad and said: ' You ' re a hateful old — you ' re a hateful old — Ldon ' t-know-what ! ' and then he slapped me; and 1 was just a-going to slap him back, when Father grabbed me with one hand an l old, mean Bob with the other, and said: ' Loys, what does this luean! ' Lobby started to sa}- something, but I hollered, ' Father, let me tell, ' so Father said: ' ' ery well, Lhil, my son. " " Then I said: ' You know, Father, a few days ago I took the money you gave me for being head of the class last month, and bought a couple of tickets to a show that ' s going to be in town clay after to-morrow. Lob wanted me to give him one of them, but 1 told him 1 was a-going to take Alarie (you know — that nice little girl what lives around the corner.) Then LSobbv said he wondered how I was going to ask her, and when I said I was going ' rmnid to her house, he said might know I was just ten or Ld know better ' n that. I asked him how come, and he said why anybody ought to kno w enough to write a note ' steatl of going to ask her, but that I wasn ' t going on thirteen like he ' s doing, and what could you e.xpect of a baby just ten years old? So I wrote Alarie a nice letter (and 1 just made two blots on it. and it looked fine) but I wanted to end it with something real nice, and liobby said to put: ' You remind me of the first three lines of a song called ' Sweet Alarie, ' ' specially the third line, from your sincerely friend, Phil. ' Then I sai l, ' Xow, Father, here ' s what 1 got from her to-day. (1 know Lm not ])retty. I know my hair ' s red. 1 know I have freckles. I know I ' m shedding my front teeth. I know Lm not pretty, but } ' 0U needn ' t tell me so. 1 used to like you. I don ' t any more. Here ' s the slate pencil and the piece of blue ribbon you gave me. Good- bye forever. Alarie. ' F ' ather, what ' s the matter with her? L must be some- thing Lobby told me to write. ' " Father just said ' Well, well! ' antl walked away; then Lobby commenced 57 to sing. Sa} ' . Sister, tell nie what to do! .Marie ' s mad with iiie and Bobby ' s glad. " " Well, dear, " I said " the song yi m mentioned begins: ' Sweet Alarie, come to me: Come to me, Sweet Alarie, ' and the third line is, ' Xot liecause vour face is tair, li c lo .see. ' " Oh! " said I ' hil, suddenh ' ci unprehending. " Now, I ' hil, write to Alarie and tell her that yon ma le a mistake in the lines — that ynn meant the last three instead of the first three. You see, dearie, the song ends : ' lint yonr heart so pnre and sweet Makes my happiness complete, Makes me falter at your feet. Sweet Marie. ' " I ' hil wrote the note and sent it, and ahont that time lioljby became penitent (and lones(]nie) and called him: so the two went off fishing. Alarie and I ' hil are now at the show — together, for this morning Phil received from her thi e|iistle: " 1 recei eil your letter. 1 will go to the show with (in. I ' m not mad. I like du. 1 )on ' t be angry. Alarie.

Turkey Gobbler stepped proudly in at farm-yard gate. He was swelled to about twice his natural size with his gorgeous red and blue head thrown back, his great tail spread in a scnn-circle, and his checked wings dragging the gromid. " Gobble! Gobble! Gobble! Quick! Quick ! " hollered out Mr. Turkey to his numerous long-legged companions, as they hurriedly swallowed the crumbs. " Good UKirning, Broe liolibler ; how do 3 ' ou d — o? " called a i)ert little bantam rooster from the doorstep. " What impudent, low-bred things, " choked Air. (_iobl)lcr, " to dare to ad- dress birds of such noble ancestr ' thus. " " Cut! Cut! out of the wa} ' , " screamed one of the haught ' Airs, (gobblers, as she gave the retreating fowl a vicious peck on the head. " Xcblier min. Air. Gobbler, )-o ' better eat while y(_i ' eats; fo ' to-morrer yo ' gwine die, " further observed Jane, on ciiming to the door. " I dun gib my instructyims to William Henry to ketch yo ' dis night an place yo ' in dat ar koop out dar; so is I kin hah } ' o ' early in de mornin ' . " . t this Air. Gobl.)lcr stoofl on one foot and scratched the side of his head with the (jther to make sure his hearing was all right; jumping and (kidging past the cook, he stalked slowl ' out of the gate calling to his family to follow. They went on down the road until they came to a big persimmon tree, where all the Airs. Gobblers made a great fuss with their mournful croaks and twits, because this was Air, Gobbler ' s last da - with them; as he was doomed to die the next morning. v uddenl}- the}- heard a loud chirp, " Help! Help! " coming from around a turn in the road, and then the blip, blip, Ijlip, iif horses ' feet. A wagon soon came in sight on which was a coop containing a large yellow turkey looking very much distressed. The wagon turned in at the farm gate; Air. Gobbler, forgetting his grief, followed to learn something id " the new bird. He did not have to wait long, for Jane soon appeared, calling out in a shrill tone; " Fo de Ian sake, what dis? Come yer, Alis Alary, Alarse Gorg dun sen } ' o ' a monstrus turky fo ' yo ' Thanksgivin ' ; we ' el hab dis here un sho. " This news cause l a great commotion in the Turkey family and Air, Gobbler, joyfully throwing his head to one side, stepped off serenely to roost. After selecting the topmost rail of the roost. Air. Gobbler shook his wings and settled comfortabl)- down to sleep, surrounded by his family. Just as the moon went under a cloud a sharj) click caused Mr. Gobbler to stir, and as he put out his foot, he touchecl a warm, round something and bringing his other foot over he tucked his head under his wing anc was soon dozing again. Presently 64 he felt himself being put, head first, into a great dark bag. As he gave one loud chirp, the bag closed over him and a hard, firm hand clutched his neck so he coul l har Ily breathe. He was carried swiftly to a dark cabin on a hillside where a big pot of water was boiling on the hearth; lie was slowly lifted out of the sack, his head was placed on a great wooden block, and a rough voice called out, " Judy, brung dat ax out her, we ' s gwine celelarate Thanksgiven too. " 65 Minutes of A Faculty Meeting R Moore : " The faculty will please come to order. " ( ] Iisses Hardaway and Franklin sitting on the front bench are still whispering " . ) ] Ir. Moore: Order please, order. Let us proceed. Will the secretary please call the roll? " Miss Hayes: " Dr. Palmer. ' " Air. Moore: " I wish to state that Dr. Palmer will be engaged for the next few minutes with some young ladies. " Air. Aloore, Misses Hale} ' . Callen and Young respond to their names. Aliss Hayes: " Miss Kennedy, " (no response). A gentle ta| is heard at the door. AJiss Hardaway rushes to the door, all smiles, and admits Mr. Chesnutt ' s dog. The other teachers with the of Miss Mc.Mahon answer to their names. The minutes are about to be read when the door opens and Aliss Kennedy enters, moving the slide on her watch-chain. Aliss Kenned} ' : " Mr. Chairman. } ' ou nnist reall} ' excuse me; liut 1 saw two little girls lingering on the way to Chapel and I stopped to reprove them. " ( She seats herself on the back bench. ) The minutes are read and adopted. Aliss McMalmn. after dismissing Chapel, quiet!}- enters, followed by Dr. Palmer with his little yellow book. Dr. Palmer: " Er — I beseech }ou to pardon me, but I was unavoidably detained, ' hat are we discussing now? " Air. Aloore: " Is there an}- imtinished business to come before the facult} ' ? " Aliss Plaley : " I think- it would Ix- well to discuss again the order in the Chapel and to hear jilans for bettering the present condition. " Air. Aloore: " The subject is open for discussion. " Aliss Callen: " If the girls were punished I think the desire to talk and otherwise misbehave would be considerably lessened. " Aliss Hardaway: " Air. Chairman. I think that ever}- time the girls mi ' -be- have in the Chapel the}- should be sun-m-ioned to Chapel on Alonday. And another thing, the same punishment should apply to insufficiently prepared lessons. " Aliss Grote : " I think so too. " Dr. Palmer: " 1 favor this suggestion and think that the girls who go to the dormitor}- during stud}- hours should experience the same punishment. " Aliss Kennedy: " 1 heartih- agree with you. Doctor, I heartily agree with you. " (The motion is made and unanimously carried.) Aliss Stephens: " I think an effective way of stopping the girl to town so much would be to make them wear full uniforn-i ever}- time. " Miss Kennedy: " Good. " (Clap, clap, claix ) Unanimousl}- carried. 67 Miss Callen : " ' Sir. Chairman, I move that we do not ahow the young ladies to enter or leave the library except at the ringing of the bell. " ' (After some discussion, the motion is seconded and unaniniousl}- carried.) Dr. Palme)- : " We should bear in mind that we are trying the plan of student governmenl this 3 ' ear. If an ' of the students misunderstand our motive in these little matters, we must let them know that the larger the family the nK)re the regulations. It would not do " liss Hayes: " Well. Dr. Palmer, there is much ti:i be said on both sides, lint for ni)- jiart, if we are going to have student government let ' s do it properly. I think it is atrocious to pretend to have student government and then hamper the girls with so man - rules. And when ve come down to the real logic of the matter " JMiss Kenned} ' : " I ' .ut ? liss Hayes, } ' ou must remember that these little girls are ton undeveloped not to have some specific regulations to help them. They must be educated up to self government. The little girls are either thoughtless or woefulh- weak. " Aliss Haley: " Mr. Chairman, we must gi -e them the benefit of the doubt, and let them know that we trust them. Pet us welcome an - plan to aid the pu|)ils in self-government. We must make our criticisms constructive instead of destructive. " Dr. Palmer, (taking up the little yellow book) : " Mr. C ' liairman, the names of several girls have been handed to me for consideration in facult ' meeting. First, we will take up Louise Lac_ -. ] Iiss Young, do you find any improvement in her work since Christmas? " ? liss ' (lung : " Her vork in my department shows lack of application and is decidedly weaker. " Miss Hardaway: " She is lowering the standard of m - Freshman Latin class. " Miss k ' unk : " Her wnrk in my department is very satisfactor ' . " Dr. Palmer: " Miss Funk, suppose } ' ou appeal to her for better work in the literar} ' department, and then, if better work is not given, she must be called into m - ofiice. Next let us take up Catherine Callowa). " i Lss Kenned) ' : " She is a hopeless case. " Mr. Aloore : " It is time that faculty meeting is over. Is there a motion for adjournment? " Air.

V I ' .asan. his oid son, a yonth of eighteen, had of late been with wild and riotous conipanious, anil now for three whole days he had not hem near his father ' s tent — " es. it was now three da ' s since El Hasan had mounted the great hl.ack hoi ' se which his father had ])lea(led vainly with him not t i ride, and, without a word even to Kelala, had disappeared across the great desert waste. .And good reason had . hleka to he alarmed when h " ,l Hasan did an tlung without first consulting his sister Kelala, the heautiful ; for the long, raven curls and dancing " black eyes if Kelala, comljined with her sweet, gracious manner .and ready sym|)athy, made her a verital le goddess in the eyes of her brother. I ' d Hasan never did tmything of even the smallest importance without conferring with Kelala and making siu ' e of her fa ' or. Now Hasan was gone, and kel.ala knew not where he was. lie had taken matters into his dw n hands and had ridden awa ' without a word of warning to an ' hod ' . . hleka dismounted from his camel cand fell u|ion his face on the ground. " Allah, the (Ireat ! . llah, the .Merciful I " ])ra ' ed he, " bring m - bo - back to me; " and then, after a |)ause. he continued: " ) . llah .-Vlmighty, thy servant knoweth tliou wouldst ha ' e an agent in the son ' s salvation.

In another moment the old man drew a deep breath; " . llali he jiraised ! " he sighed, as he recognized the slender figure of his son mounted u] on the |(owerlul l)lack steetl. The horse was coming like the wind , ' md the oung iiiaii was not trying to control the animal, for well he knew the intelligent beast would stop of its own . ' iccord at the home tent.

A comparison of these men is most interesting; the contrast in their lives, work, and motives of work, is striking. Thongh Thackerax ' was a } ' ear iilder than Dickens and grew up in a nnich more favorahle alnidsphere. he was later t(j he recognized as a great writer, lie was edncated at the famous Charter House School and at Cambridge; and afterwards s])ent some time studying on the continent. All this while Dickens, as a little raga- mufhn in the streets if the great city, was pasting labels on blacking l)ottles to hel].! gain a li ing fur hi - family, llis formal education was onl ' a short, blissfid ])erio(l in the common schools; his real education was largeh ' the result of keen observation of life in the slum districts. This he put to ])ractical use in journalism. As Dickens ' early success and fame were owing, no doubt, much to his indomitable courage and ne er- failing energy, so Thackeray ' s late recog- nition a t L-. in a measure, to his shrinking nature and his strong aversion lor w ( u ' k in anv form. In the choice of subjects, Thackera ' an l Dickens ditl ' ered widely; Thackeray chose his characters from the aristocracy of Hngland ; Dickens from the common people — the slums. The former ' s characters develop as they grow familiar, while the kilter ' s present pictures complete. Thackeray portrays mature persons better than children; men better than women. Dickens excels in the art of painting child life, with its trials and joys and sc.irrows. The metln)d of treatment varies as greatly with the two authors as the selec- tion of subjects. Thackeray was a " student of life rather than of the individual soul. " lie was an honest hater of all sham and hollow forms of society, and e. ])(jsed these at e er - opportunity with apparent relish. l " or this he has been called a c nic ami pes imist ; but one who reads deeply enough is rewarded with a glimpse of the intense humanity beneath. All of his writings are an earnest protest against deception. Dickens, in his works, ad ocates the reform of existing abuses and institutions, lie alway s suits his character to the pur- pose he is to serve, and that purpose outweighs the importance of the subject. Thus it is seen that Thackeray subordinates ]ilot to subject, while Dickens gives plot the place of importance. The writings of each are ])ernieated wi(h deep emotions, the most charac- teristic of which are pathos and humor. The ijathos found in Thackeray is simple an l potent; in Dickens there is often a ' isil)le effort after eft ' ect. The death (jf Colonel Newcome, as an exami)le of touching pathos, is unsurpassed in literature. Dickens ' pathos is sometimes calKd a " pumping for tears, " but we who ha e wept over the death of little . ell will hardl agree with this criticism. The humor of the two authors is ver ' distinct; Dickens laughs with his 74 characters, and Thackeray laughs at them. A ' ith the one it is hearty and bois- terous, but with the other, subtle, keen and stinging. The impressions which these novehsts have made on their art is as widely different as their nther characteristics. Thackeray vests the chief interest of his novels in the characters, with only the thread of a plot to unite the whole. His men and women stand before the reader with such distinctness and charm that the need of the plot is not felt. Dickens crystalizes the interest of his novels in the plot. Uf this he is a master, constructing broad, intricate and varied i)lots, but handling the most tlifhcult with the utmost ease. He is pre- eminentl ' a story-teller. Thackeray ' s style is clear, easy and finished ; his con- temporary often shows a lack of these qualities. As a novelist Thackeray ' s main subjects are well-defined, individual, life- like. He brings prominently Ijefore the reader only a few characters, whereas Dickens ' pages are crowded. The descriptions in Thackejay are graphic. His novels, as a whole, attract the niatiu ' c mind, while those of Dickens ' are the de- light of the child as well. Dickens and Thackerax ' must each be judged in the light of his own peculiar genius, " for there is none perfect — no, not one. " 75 J y V p c iv«ecrev c,v c o c yn L is " The Charm of Virgil lERE are some songs, some poems, some pictures, some places, words, and sounds even, which possess an almost indescribable fascination for us ; these do not come upon us suddenly, but make their wa} ' into our lives silentlv and gently, but once there, remain. Such is Virgil ' s power. We may analyze his works and account in a measure for their etifect upon us. but there is still something about them as intangible as the emotions aroused by some time-honored ballad. In a careful study of our author, it may be well to enumerate his general char- acteristics, and then take eacli nf them separately. N ' irgil is noted for his dignity; for his discrimination in the selection of his language — now simple, now elaborate; for his sublimity; for his accurate observation and his skillful management of details. We nia_ - also note his use of imager} ' , his fine descrip- tions, and his numerous figures of speech. Wonderful is the dignity in the opening lines of the Aeneid, and the invo- cation of the muse is stately and grand. ' irgil can be very effective with his simplicity, though, on the other hand, we may note many examples of his elab- orate expression. Another pleasing quality which appears in this book is the dramatic element. Where in all literature can a more sublime passage be found than in X ' irgil ' s description oi the storm ? The way in which ' irgil refers this action of Nature to the gods and goddesses is marvelous. Alliteration and onoma- topoeia are employed with striking effect, often in the same line; as, " Magna cuui iiuinniirc Jiiontis. " After the forces of wrath are in full sway, how grandly impressive is Neptune, as he gazes calmly over the heaving sea and raises his placid head to the top of the waves. We may understand the aid of careful observation by noticing X ' irgil ' s skillful management of details. Me is able to create for us any atmosphere and he does this liy the use of picture-making words and by the artistic arrangement of his situations. ' irgirs works abound in figiu ' es, the most prominent of which are meton- om} ' and simile ; other figures are transferred epithet, allusion, litotes, parallelism and apostrophe. If we wish to see depicted a remarkable knowledge of human nature, we must go to " irgil. There we watch Juno bribe Aeolus with the promise of a beautiful wife;Eeneas comforts his companions and begins his own assuring words, heart-sick though he is ; ' enus approaches Jupiter with " her shining eyes suffused with tears, " and Jupiter, being a man, could, of course, do nothing but grant her request ; how naturally does Aeneas reproach his mother when she deceives him ; how skillfully floes enus appeal to Cupid when she wishes his aid — her womanly intuition teaching her how to approach her son with her re- 77 quest and how " to seize Dido betimes by strategy. " We note these instances of Nirgil ' s power and feel our defects and our weaknesses revealed. . lan - famous i|Ui itatii m ' - cume fnmi ir,!;il ' wurks.

' ' 86 The Upward Look ' THE rPir.lKJ) LOOK, [ ■« February the General Secretary gave a series of devotional talks one of ivlnch , follows in futl. lERE is an old picture that most if us have seen in childhood, that of a girl with upward look, clinging with both arms to a cross, ( ' )ver her the clouds hang dark, while alraut her feet the waves are dashing, surging and wind-beaten. I ' .ut it is to a later development of that picture that I wish to attract your at- tention this afternoon. The cross, the clouds, the waves are the same, hut the features of the girl, though there still shines in her face the light of faith, have a more determined cast ; and with only her left arm she clings to the cross, while with her right she reaches down into the boiling flood and clasps the hand of one struggling beneath the waves, lifting her to the high, firm rock upon which she herself is kneeling. This last picture is to my mind, girls, trulv symljolical of the Christian life, — the upward look for divine aid, the downward grasp for the uplift of those struggling beneath the billows of sin, temptation, distress, and unbelief. " lint, " you ask, " what has the ' upward look ' you speak of, to do with the upward lift? ' " (iirls, there is notliing accomplishetl without vision. ' ision (i) of ourselves. Some one has said that each individual is seen from four different standpoints, first that of the world at large, then of her intimate friends, third, from the standpoint of her own soul, and lasth ' , as the Creator sees her. The world is an unsafe critic. Often times it flatters and we are inclined to be less vigilant regarding our faults. Again it sees only our faults and coldly thrusts them into our faces. We need be careful then lest we become easily discouraged and give up plans whose execution we had undertaken with zeal and enthusiasm. Our friends know us better. The_ ' can make allowances for ou r weak- nesses ; but even they do not know us as we know ourselves. They do not un- derstand the longings of our hearts, the as])irations of our better moments, the strength of the temptations that assail us as we ourselves know them. But do we know ourselves? Do we see ourselves in the right light? No, only the Divine eye sees us as we are ; only He can discern the hidden germ of selfishness, of malice, env}-, spite, that under suitable conditions will spring into being. This is the reason why often in temptation we find we are weakest where we thought we v ' ere strongest, even as Nicodemus, the spiritual leader of Israel, found he knew nothing of the elements of the Christian life. On the other hand, only He descried the hidden rock of character in the unstable Simon. Hence it is by means of the upward look we catch a vision of ourselves, seeing our inmost souls, their weaknesses, their latent possibilities as He sees them — as they are. ' ision (2) of the World. V, looking upward, out and on beyond we see the need, the sorrow, the sulTering, the ignorance, the hopelessness. X ' ision (3) of Him. If we see ourselves aright, if we see the world aright, there is despondency, there is, I might say, despair ; but there is this other vision that we catch of Him — Jesus Christ in His love for us and the needy world, in His wisdom as to the ways for devising plans to meet that need, in His power for carrying out these plans. We have seen the tc m ' of the upward look, let us more specificallv question li ' hcn? 87 T. At Conversion; for His incoming. Girls, conversion is simpl) ' tnrning — turning from sin, from ourselves, from even friends, and looking n|) var(l to I lim alone for the incoming, inflooding of His Spirit. _ ' . In Perplexity: Did you ever get to the forks of a road and did not know which way to go? You knew that at only one end or the other was the dcstinatiiin ()U wished to reach; liut ynu stood in i)crplexit ' , for ' ou did not know- whicli. ' ou will come to the forks of the road in life, ( iirK, man ' times, ])nl tlu ' i e will he occasions when momentous issues will hang upon your deci- sion. 1 )are you take one step without the upward look? ,V In Disappointment: All of ou know what disappointn:ent means; but do ' ou know what it is to clasp it to dur hearts as " His appointment? " Because it is only through disappointing us in our self-laid plans that He can work Ili.s great life plan for us. It is one ' s first impulse to complain, to find fault, to bec(jme discouraged, to give up when disappointments come, especially if they be many; but by the upward look to Him for strength to bear them, they are by divine alchemy transmitted into elements for the upbuilding of noble Christian lives. 4. In Sorrow: Xot man ' of ' ou, perhaps, know, as ' et, the meaning of real sorrow, and it is well, Ijut the time will come, girls, when human voice, thougli tender, can Ijring you little comfort, when human hands, though willing, can not lift the burden from ' our heart. Then it is, that with eyes raised to His face ' ou will see that though " The mist is on the ri ' er, A ' ct the sun is on the hills. " ' 5. In ( )ur Work: We are I lis creation, so is oiu " work His work, tasks that He sets us to d(j for a two- fold ijurpose, nameh-, the development of our own character and as His co-workers to make the world better. Shall we choose our own tasks, or shall we not the rather look to Him for the assignment of the lesson, the portioning out of our part? Do you remember the words of that wonderful philosopher, Paul? — a man educated, refined, cultured, equipped it seemed if ever man was ec[uipped to meet Life ' s struggle — " I can do all things " — all things? Yes, but how? Listen — " Through Christ that strengtheneth me. " It is the ujiward look that makes us willing to dare the impossijjle ; for " with ( iod all things are possible. " 6. Lastly, we need the u|)ward look for- Mis abiding. Girls, some of us are like an intermittent spring. A traveler worn and thirsty turns eagerly to the rock under the hill from wdiich he once found gushing a stream of water. Put what is his dismay to find instead onl_ ' a dry gravel bed, where was wont to babble the cool, limpid brook that came from the rock above. Mb. dear young wonu ' n, let us cease to be the intermittent s]:)ring flowing onl " ui limes of refreshing showers, but let us 1) ' the constant, dailv, u])ward IooIk k ' ee|) the cijunection between us and the great source of supply so free from the rubbish of worldliness and the mud of selfishness, that the cool, limpid stream of Mis lo -e can jlow ihi-ougb our lives a li ' ing stream, liringing blessing and comfort to those athirst.

The music pupils of Miss Boardman and Mi s W ' ilxm, onlv, were eligible to this club. The first president was ] liss Ruth Long. Her successors have been Aliss I ' rice Miller, who was president for two ) ' ears, and Miss Kathleen Shivers, who is the present presiding officer. This music club, as man_ ' others of the kind, has studied and tudies ndw, the lives and works of the great composers. These programs have been varied, however, by musicales and other entertainments given to the honorary memliers, and musical contests for the active members. The second year in the history of the clul). Mis Laura Dale, who had been studying in Xew ' ork for several _ ' ears, was made an iKjnorary member. She was present at a number of the meetings and took great interest in the club. Her music was indeeil a great inspiration to all the members. The features most prominent in this year ' s history are the celebration of St. Cecilia ' s birthday; two delightful entertainments given by the Schumann Society ; a most interesting program on Beethoven, celebrating this great mas- ter ' s birthdav. 101 St, Cecelia Club Roll Miss Margaret Boakdman Honorary Members Miss Vkta Franklin Active Members Barck, Ei na Bowi.ixr., Carrie Dowi.iNG, Bkrtie Mae Dixon, Florence Faulk, Leola Hoffman, Lilly Kyle, Ruth Lyon, Marguerite MiMS, Clara Nash, Pansy Powell, Floride Peters, Ella rosson, lucilk Scruggs, Jennie Sellers, Annie Steel Grace Smith, Lilla Shiyers, Kathleen Underwood, Annie Walker, Nonie WiMUKRLY, Ethel When tlie clnl) was first organized the Violet was rliosen as the chili flower, and the colors Pnrple and White.
