Gj SO 5 " - HE Alabama Girls ' Technical Institute seal, which ■ J 1S shown for the first time, is the work of Mrs. if I lowie, head of the line arts department. The four circles within the large one are typical of the several phases of the work of our school. The lower one signifies the academic studies, the foundation of education. The circle to the left pictures a log cabin from which domestic art and domestic science evolved. The circle to the right represents horticulture. The upper circle is typical of art as applied to the home. The date, i8q6, is the date of the founding of the Institute. The eagle, on the shield with the date of the beginning of Alabama ' s statehood, is taken from the great seal of Alabama, and typifies the state protecting this institution.

This is but the record of a school year — only the joys and sorrows ot a group of school girls — but to us a book, every page of which is vibrant with our hearts ' emotions. To you it is, perhaps, but an hour ' s passing amusement, vet we trust that its pages will bring fond recollections to those who have long since passed from these halls of learning, and to those, who in years to come may look back with gentle thoughts and tender memories on the beloved school of their girlhood.

Senior Class Poem When in lifes ' after years we 12 ' s are far apart. Still we ' ll be bound together by the old Time heart to heart And golden chains of flowers, of Black-eyed Susans dear And other tender memories of our fleeting Senior year. We thought we found our school life a field a-bloom with flowers, And vainly fancied as girls will that the goal of all our powers La in the crossing. Hut not so; for we ' ve discovered late A field beyond ; the goal when reached we saw was but a gate. Through this gate we soon shall pass into green " pastures new, " But to you Alma Mater our hope is to remain most true. And when out on Life ' s moor our paths are widening far May the lesson learned from you he for each a guiding star! Irma C. Dumas, ' 12. Senior Class History FEW weeks after school opened in October, 19118. an immense swarm of little green caterpillars could be seen crawling up and down the tree of wisdom at Montevallo. When thev first came in touch with the tree thev were a bright, livid green, but examinations turned them pale. Xo one except the little caterpillars know what they did that year, for no one noticed the little crawly things, but if any one thinks they did nothing but feed on the leaves, and sleep, that person is not a good student of " Natural-Freshman History. " In 1909, these insects crept out of their cocoons, and shook their beau- tiful gold and black wings. Then they soared and soared, tasting of this sweet, then that, — never seeing the thorn of the rose, the poison of the trumpet flower. At rare intervals, the nectar-sipping creatures would come to earth, and pause for an instant at the brink of the mud-puddle of knowledge. So they flitted and flew the entire vear. At the end of the school vear, Mother Nature saw that these idle, lovely things had wasted time when thev should have been acquiring strength, and could not face the junior winter in their present form. She loved them — who does not love a butterflv J . — and did not wish to see them suffer, so the wise old woman just waved her wand once. The butterflies slept, and waked as ants. Busy? A line of those ants could be seen night and day rushing to and fro with stacks of note-books as large as they were. No honeysuckles for them. They were of the earth, earthy. But, oh, they were unattractive, and when one remembered the gold and black creatures of the year before — the ignominious caterpillar life had been forgotten — a great pity welled up in his heart. Old Mother Nature put on her spectacles and thought. She thought a long time, and no one knows what she thought; but this year, strange, fas- cinating creatures have taken the place of the ants. No one has ever seen anything quite like them before. Some think they are great gold and black bumble bees; some have detected a likeness to wasps; the freshmen think they are birds of Paradise, but Mother Nature knows they are just Seniors. Agnes Hitt, ' 12. Class Prophecy VENUS am I. Rightly bear I the name " Goddess of love and beauty. " The girls of ' 12 loved me with love that surpassed the love of other classes. For me did they wait each day at twi- light when, as the evening star, I burst through the clear blue of the heav- ens. Under the protection of my beams their trysting place was. Now, after ten years have flown they still look for me, and I watch each one as she goes about her duties, making the world sweeter and better by her pure life and noble ideals. Lettie DafKn, the beloved president, has become known as the " Little Mother of the Prisons.

Laura Havnes and Irma Dumas are carrying out their lofty ideals as farmers ' wives, each living the simple, beautiful life, which strengthens the mind and elevates the soul. Of the entire number, Ruth Murphree and Bianca Cocciola are the only members of Class ' 12 who are engaged in theatrical life: Ruth is playing the role of the " Tall Lady, " and Bianca that of " lackey " in Edna Green ' s latest drama, " Follies of 191 2.

The spirit of adventure manifested itself in our Ruth Hanson. She went to Italy, and while there her beauty and charm won the heart of a Florentine nobleman; she never came back to us! So dear wert thou to the hearts of thy girls, O, A. G. T.

As we review the fading past. And dream on days that fled so fast; Full many a thorn which once was ours Seems all a-blossom now with flowers. And ma our motto prove to each (Until Heaven at last we reach) A sign of hope through all her life To help her conquer cave and strife. " That nothing is too hard for labor " — Our motto is our shield and sabre; Believint!; it our hearts are stout. And every care we ' ll put to rout. In June, when we depart in glee, Loved ones at home, at last to see, For A. G. T. 1. a love that ' s deep Down in our hearts we still shall keep. With this remembrance our fate is sealed ; Victory in classroom, athletic field. Or wherever else our colors are seen Who ' d not be one of us? Lucky thirteen! And now as Juniors on we ply With beating hearts, and courage high, A clear " Well done " as our race is run. Speeds us on to Seniordom. Meta Phelps, ' 13. History of 1913 ' EPTEMBER 14, 1909, was a red-letter day for one hundred and eighty-five little girls, for on that day their connection with the Alabama Industrial School began. It was a red-letter day for the school, too, for never before had she opened her doors to such bright, promising freshmen. We came from every part of the state, and some of us even from other states. Soon we were initiated into the mysteries of the A. G. 1. S. YVe went through many bewildering performances; such as registering, standing examinations, going before the admission committee, getting classified, and having our schedules made out. Then we learned we were ready to begin work. Our first president was Marion Brooke, who led us safely through the first year. We had a very good time; almost all of us studied hard; our behavior was unsurpassed, if we except a few mischievous pranks. We tried to make a good impression on all the teachers; we worked hard to win their approval. Some of us finally got on the basket- ball team. When the final test came, many of us proved ourselves ready for the sophomore class. When our first year was over, we liked the A. Ci. I. S. so well that the next year saw a great many of us back. We were joined by some " new girls, " who were fortunate enough to enter the sophomore class. Our president for that year was Daisy Dale. It was in our sophomore year that we became girls of the A. G. T. I., instead of the A. G. I. S. Changing our name was a memorable event for all of us. As sophomores we still had our ups and downs. We continued to make good records in school and out of school; sometimes we failed, but remembering that, " Nothing is impossible to labor, " we worked on, day after day, until May came again. The sophomores of last year who returned September 13, 1911, were joined by several new girls, and at present our class has seventy-seven mem- bers. We met at the first of the vear and elected Mary Ellen Fav presi- dent. I need not say how much she has done, and is doing for our class. We have been before the public onlv once this vear, and that was on the school ' s birthday. After our exercises in the chapel were over, we went out on the campus and planted our hedge, — the custom of each junior class. There are many good things I might say about our class. In our own opinion, we think we have a good reputation. Very tew of our number 4— T have stumbled on the examinations. We have a fairly good record in basket-ball. It ma not be the best, but nevertheless it is very good. We have tailed to be the champions this year, but we have another chance next year. )ne member of our class has the honor of being a member of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet. We are proud of our class record, hut we realize that it could be better. Let ' s one and all return next year and have the largest and strongest senior class the school has ever had. Then we shall be justified in saying that our entrance, September 14, 1 Quo, was a red-letter day for the Alabama Girls ' Technical Institute. Mabel Hitt, ' 13. A. G. T. I. beintr interpreted by a wise man, is this: C m mmm " Hi S3 11 Alma Mater We ' ve learned to love and reverence thee.

I. about one hundred twenty-five genuine voting girls. As the faculty and students be- held so manv tender, fragile young vines of genius which needed only a good strong support to enable them to climb higher and higher until each one had twined itself around the topmost boughs of the tree of fame, they were tilled with awe, and were forced to realize that we were indeed mar- vels. We had not learned to appreciate ourselves then as we do now. After the fierce examinations, we found ourselves Freshmen. We met and. with due ceremony, organized our class. Alleen McKenzie was elected President. We found the path of knowledge far from easy: yet we real- ized that nothing is worth while that is not worth striving for. In Max- only a few of us were nipped by the bitter frost of examinations. The class of 1914 came back from the summer vacation with courageous hearts, ready to strive to make our class known to posterity as the class that sent forth more illustrious women than any other class that has ever been graduated at the A. G. T. I. There are one hundred fifty of us, which is by far the largest sophomore class our school has ever had. Alleen McKenzie was re-elected President and Annie Euart Hightower was elected Vice-President. We have a splendid basket-ball team, which promises to excel the teams of the other classes. Each member of the class has presented the household committee with a foliage plant. These little green plants have modified the bleak looks of the dining hall during the winter months. The class of 19 14 will no doubt have a great future, for it has had a great past. Nothing has been allowed to interfere with the performance of duty except unavoidable outside engagements — (Measles may be mentioned as an example). So far our record has been excellent. We shall continue to push onward, ami are confident that when the roll is called on that looked for day in June, 19 14, we shall nearly all answer " Here! " Pearl Baskin, ' 14.

" Ruth Jl ' ilks Freshman Class History ON September [3, 1911, we, the class of 1915, made our appear- ance at the A. (1. I. I. We were not an organized whole until the second of ( )ctober, when with the assistance of the Juniors, our sister class, ami of our advisory teachers, ' we elected our class officers and laid plans for our Freshman year. L nder favorable auspices the class of ' 1 was horn. Months have passed since our A. d. I . 1. birthday. ( )ur faces no longer shine with contentment; our eyes have lost their wonted luster: despair is steadily creeping into our hearts, for now we sadly and hopelessly realize that we are not as important as we thought we would be. The Sopho- mores, vain, worldly beings, have forgotten that they were once Fresh- men: the Juniors, supercilious and proud, look on us as infants; the Seniors, oh! we dare not speak of such superior persons except with bated breath. In many respects our class is the most remarkable in school. In the first place, we have the largest number; then we boast of the fact that our teachers love us so dearly that we frequently Stay with them after tour o ' clock. Our chief ambition is to be able to go shopping on Monday, ami to wear that scholarly, preoccupied look which is characteristic of the Seniors. But why should we worry?

" The History of the College Class " •fc- HE history ot our country between the Civil War and the usher- fl J ing in of a new century is unmarked by any notable event, except the birth of five persons, who were afterward to constitute the first organized college class of Alabama Girls ' Technical Institute. These persons grew up from babyhood to girlhood much the same as other youngsters; they did not receive especial attention from their friends and relatives, who never dreamed of the future awaiting these not unusual look- ing children. The records of their early years, therefore, have been lost, but fortunately we are concerned only with that era of their life which be- gins with their appearance at Montevallo. Mamie Meroney, our president, entered school several years ago, and has sauntered leisurely through the course. She graduated last year, and is back this term for graduate work in home economics. When a golden- haired girl goes in for home economics, people ask " Why . J " and ask it in such a way that betrays them as already having guessed why. The col- lege class knows why, but they absolutely refuse to tell. " from prep to teacher of preps " is the record, in brief, of Helen San- ders. When Helen is not engaged with her duties as secretary, treasurer, and prophet of the college class, she delves into college English, and if there is anything she enjoys more than correcting prep themes it is writing college themes. When the violets on the campus are blooming, one can see, at any time of the day, our vice-president bending over the fragrant beauties. Min- nie Lee entered A. G. T. I. as a Freshman, and has never outgrown the Freshman tendency to pick violets for Someone. She is back, after grad- uating last year, to take home economics. I his makes us think that next year her occupation will be planning meals for Someone. Three years ago a small yellow-haired lass, who knew much Latin and more Math, took her place among the awe-stricken Juniors. Besides being assistant librarian, Mary is an artist, musician, first soprano, harpist, band master, " Middle man, " and organ, grinder of the college class. She is interested, above all else, in Thackeray ' s novels and in mayonnaise dressing. The historian and poet of the college class entered school several years since with the hope oi getting a diploma sometime. In the attempt she has grown emaciated, pale, stooped, lame, near-sighted, wan, wrinkled, and worn. She has been engaged this year in writing a histoi " ) and poem for her class. As a rest ami recreation, she lias tried to implant cube roots and surds in the fertile brains of absurd young Freshmen and Sophomores, i bus ends the chronicle of the college class. If any one. perchance, should desire to know more ot the history of the class, let him turn to previous volumes oi our annual, and there read the records of the illus- trious class of Eleven. To the Other Girls of Eleven We played together through the long glad hours; Chssed golden butterflies, and gathered flower--, ( )r hunted tour-leaf clovers in the grass, And noticed not that day was fading fast, ' Till evening came. We parted, then, at twilight ere the stars Had come. We left you at the meadow bars To go your way, and we went ours. tAe while Recalling with an ever-tender smile The day just gone. When day again had dawned, the darkness spent. Hack to the scenes of yester eve we went. We found the morning sunlight fresh and fair. The grass still green, but, since you were not there, Twas not the same. And we have missed y u all the hours through ; The day seems gloomy, though the skies are blue. The flowers are as fragrant as on yestermorn, Hut half the joy of picking them is gone, For we ' re alore. ( )h, that our paths would meet again! What bliss To feel the flower-laden breezes ' kiss In gardens fair, and pluck the thornless rose Once more. Perhaps it may be so, who knows. In after years. Winnie Davis Neely, Y. W. C. A.

Refrain We will raise her banners proudly O ' er the halls both new and old. And will sing the praise forever ( )f the Purple and the Gold. To these colors of our schooldays. We pledge ourselves to stand. And we ' ll sing our heartfelt praises. Let us join with heart and hand; We think of all things noble When they to the breeze untold. For our hearts are all enraptured With the Purple and the Gold. Refrain When our school days here are over, And we turn to other fields To pick the four-leaved clover Good luck so often yields; ' Mid scenes so very different. We ' ll love these days of old. When at dear old A. G. T. I. ' Twas the Purple and the Gold. Refrain Dr. Palmer ' s New Year ' s Greeting ' IRLS, I have something to say to you this morning. Please give me your attention : " Invite your friends to your room and enjoy all the good things which you brought back with you after the holidays. If canned goods are scarce, notify Miss Leeper and she will see that you are supplied. If there is a lack of candy, just let the Seniors know it and they will bring it to you on Mondays. In case you should want to have a feast during the week, the college students will run all necessary errands. " Now, girls, something else important: It is in regard to the measles. Whenever you feel bad or think you have temperature, keep it entirely to yourself, and by no means let Miss Mellown know it. We should not like to have you separated from your friends. We also urge you to visit their rooms frequently so they will not be lonesome. Another good way to show your affections, girls, is to exchange clothes. We like to see you wearing your friends ' dresses, and no doubt your friends are willing to wear almost anything to give you this pleasure. " And, another thing, it looks so indifferent to see you strolling on the campus as if you were afraid of one another. Walk close together. Put your arm around your friends. Do be affectionate; kiss one another occa- sionally. As for spreading diseases, I think there is no danger at all. " Now, girls, bear these things in mind and — govern yourselves accord- ingly. " Blanche Smartt. A Message From a Fairy One day when quite a little girl, I went down by the river side. To where the black-eyed Susans gay, Were blossoming brightly far and wide. I read a book of fairy tales, And wondered at their mystery : The book grew dull, then slumber sweet Fell like a gentle cloud on me. I heard a soft, low, rustling noise, I turned and saw a wondrous sight; A fairy came a-tripping by Bringing a black-eyed Susan bright. " I ' ve brought this flower, " he whispered low, " To tell to you its story true. And then a motto I ' ll set forth, Which will work wondrous things for you. " This flower was once a maid like you, She loved Apollo, god of the sun ; But Apollo kept his daily course. And haughtily did her wooings shun. " One April day to her surprise She grew into a flower gay; But still she gazed upon the sun, And does until this very day. " Emblem of constancy she proved. With heart so firm, and brave, and bold : The choicest colors and the best — Were given to her — the black and gold. " Now maiden, to my motto list; To you, as to that maid of old ; ' No palm without the labor is given ; Then be as true as the black and gold. ' " Far down the future path I gaze; I see dear ' 12, that shining class Of A. G. T I., grand old school! That leads to victory many a lass. " That class is like the Susans bright Who kept their aim so true and bold; To them the palm will ' ere be given. They ' ll stand as firm as the black and gold. " Mary Capell.

How would ' st thou have me prove for thee my love? Not by m verse would I my love declare. Nor would I swear it by " our Star " above; To prove to thee its depths I must despair. Ah, man-like, thou would ' st have me only love. And doing that, thou say ' st I do my all. Not so, mv soul e ' en higher bids me move; Lest from thine own idea I should fall. Love, service, sacrifice — each has her part ; I gave thee all in this — a woman ' s heart. Grace Gast. The Cakes That Mother Baked Home-balced cakes we hailed as a treasure, For often at noon when returning from school We found them a source of exquisite pleasure. Though feasting, we knew, was breaking the rule; How ardent we ate them with appetites glowing, As quick out of sight they vanished away ; But soon. Dr. Palmer, the guilty facts knowing, Said, " We will dispose of these cakes in a day. " The chocolate cake, the cocoanut cake. And all the good cake that our mothers did bake. Then down from her room on the table to place it. Each girl in great sorrow, her luncheon did bring! No one but the " Doctor " could force her to leave it. ' Die cakes were delicious enough for a king. When years have gone by, we ' ll think of this sorrow, And many a time our hearts will nigh break As fancy returns to our school days of horror. And sighs for the cake that our mothers did bake. The chocolate cake, the cocoanut cake, And all the good cake that our mothers did bake. Carrie Pruilt. Y. W. C. A. HE Young Women ' s Christian Association was organized in our Cil. school in 1898. It began with a few members, and a budget of twe nty-five dollars. The Y. W. C. A. has grown with the school, and now has between three and four hundred members, with a budget of a thousand dollars. Since 1907 the Association has had a General Sec- retary who has directed the work. Miss Marv de Bardelaben, Miss Pearl McCrory, and Miss Frances Y. Smith have been the secretaries. I he Y. W. C. A., the largest organization in our school, through Bible train- ing and other Christian works, tries to co-operate with all departments in bringing the most important things to the girls. The Castalian Literary Society ■■fHE name Castalian is taken from Castalia, a famous fountain at ll the foot of Mount Parnassus, the waters of which fountain gave ■ " knowledge to the gods. We have tried to make the Castalian Literary Society a " Fountain of Knowledge. " I his society, organized in 1900, was the first literary club of the school. An interesting course of study is followed each year. This past year, 1911-1912, the " Age of Anne " has been studied. The club meets in the club room every Saturday evening. The membership is limited to thirty-five junior, senior, and college students. The Philomathic Literary Society ■■ HF. Philomathic Literary Society was organized in January, 1909, w j by Miss Mary Young (Mrs. Merkle). This society is the ■ youngest of the three literary clubs in the school. It has passed through the trying days of a new club, and is now a potent factor in the life of the school. Meetings are held weekly and interesting courses of study are followed each year. There are twenty-eight active and ten hon- orary members. 8— T The Julia Strudwick Tutwiler Club XN [anuary, [901, five girls met at the home of President Peterson to form a society for the study of Southern Literature. Of these five girls, one. Miss Nell Peterson, is assistant in the history de- partment at A. G. T. P; another, Miss Shivers, is in a New Jersey public library. The other three charter members of the club are Miss Shelby Gar- rett, Mrs. Lena Peterson Givhan, and Mrs. Edith Hayes Walker. I he society thus formed was called the Julia Strudwick I utwiler Club, in honor of a real live heroine to whom Alabama girls owe a debt that they can not well repay. The Julia Strudwick Tutwiler club has caught the spirit of Miss Tutwiler, and has endeavored to promote the education of Alabama girls by means of an A. G. T. I. loan scholarship, which is awarded each year to one of the club members. The literary aim of the club having broadened since its beginning, includes, now, other subjects than Southern literature. This year a delightful course, including four Shakespearian plays, has been followed. The Emma Hart Willard Club J HE Emma Hart Willard Club was organized to lead its mem- £1 . bers into a deeper knowledge of the meaning of expression. This ■ club dates its origin in the early days of the school. Miss Hayes, an exponent of the Clark School of Expression, interested herself greatly in the founding of the club, which was composed of members from the oratory class, and a few honorary members. In 1908, when Miss Halbert, of the Clark School of Expression, became the teacher of oratory, the work of the club is especially worth mentioning. She urged the use of classical selections in the bi-monthly literary programs, and a critical study was made of Hamlet and Macbeth. In 1909, Miss Walters, of the Curry School of Expression, became the oratory teacher here; under her direc- tion the club gave Shakespeare ' s Much Ado About Nothing, During the session of 1910-1911, the organization drooped a little, but was revived under the direction of Miss Lull. The club this year hopes to give a plav in the spring. The Schumann Society ■ HE Schumann Society is the only musical club in school. It was 1 £ | organized in the year 1901-1902 by Miss Bessie McCary and Mrs. J. H. Davies, formerly Miss Mona Meyers. Miss Meyers was the first president. For ten years, the society has continued its inspir- ing work. At present, there are oyer one hundred members. The honor- ary members are the faculty of the music department. The aim of the so- ciety is to create a greater interest in the music department, and to acquaint its members with both the old and the modern composers. Mon Ami The greatest joy that comes to us in lite. The joy which our hearts treasure most on earth. The comfort of our lives in peace or strife, Is the friend who shares our sorrows and our mirth. Can pomp, vain glory, universal fame. Give all we need in striving for our goal ? Can learning, art, or music heal the pain, That all of us, at times, feel in the soul ? One cannot know the depth of poetry. The painter ' s soul through painted canvas see. In music feel the tender melody, Unless in life a friend and love there be; When I grow old and life draws near an end. Take all thou wilt, but leave to me my friend. Ruby Alversc Getting to Breakfast at A. G. T. I. The first thing I hear in the morning Is that dreadful rising bell, Calling me forth from my slumbers Its woful tale to tell. " I ' ll sleep just one minute longer, Then I ' ll get up, " I think. But even before I know it Into dreamland again I sink. The minutes keep on passing. And the very next thing I know. The second bell is ringing, O my ! can that be so? I ' ve lost my hairpins. Where are my shoes? What did I do with my dress? Please, somebody, hand me a comb, and a belt! My hair i - the biggest mess! And then I hear the last gong sound. And down the halls I fly; I catch a glimpse of teachers, too, As I go rushing by. At last I reach the dining room. And I barelv do get in. When Dr. Palmer, through with grace. Pronounces a loud " Amen. ' ' Margaret Cater. Another girl with arms out. And feet that can ' t keep still, Is struggling into a middy And looks like an old wind-mill. But if some poor girl lingers To powder up her nose. She ' ll come in time that morning To see the doors fast close. — B. K. The Shortness of a Day (An Allegory.) " fc- HE earth was a-quiver with joy; a new Day had dawned. Fading £ £j stars in the morning sky, the lifting of darkness from the valleys and hills, and soft tints in the east had foretold it. A soft breeze whispered it to the leaves as it kissed them good morning, and they rustled as they spread the tidings. The birds heard it and twittered happily; then they hurried to tell the flowers and bees. By this time, the sun was shining brightly, yet softly. Dewdrops, caught by hundreds in cobweb meshes, sparkled in the light; restless streams and quiet pools reflected the glory of the earth and the sky. 1 he wood creatures were noisy; tiny lambs frolicked in the meadows; children laughed and ran about for sheer joy of living. All was happy, for the Day had dawned, and the world was fair. Then the earth grew more quiet, but not less joyous. The bees hummed busily; the children played contentedly: the birds were so busy that they sometimes forgot to sing; the brook sang on quietly, almost lazily. " Is the Day not fair? " they said. The breeze stirred faintly. A monotone of quiet content floated through the melody. A wave of disquiet, not of joyous excitement, but of trouble passed over the earth. What was this the winds were saying? The birds flew from tree to tree. Was it really true? They told the flowers. " It cannot be, " they said. " She is so young, and we love her so. " " Hush, " said the breeze. " Oh, no, " sighed the children. " It has been such a little while since morning. " The flowers moaned in pity, and drooped their pale heads. The birds and bees, wondering, crept to their homes. Only a dark winged bat flew through the sky. The leaves trembled slightly, " Alas, " they murmured, " she is so young and so fair. " " Hush, " said the breeze. Then they waited, breathless. != The grass and flowers were wet. " The earth is weeping, " said the sky. Then she shook out a garment of darkest mourning, and tenderly folded it about the bereaved one; the Day was dead. — Winnie Davis Neely. Recreate, Q, Recreate Four forty-five each winter eve. Recreate, O, recreate! From rooms the girls must take their leave, And, on the campus, recreate. Sometimes, ' tis, oh, so very cold ; Recreate, (), recreate! Rut students all, both young and old, Must, on the campus, recreate. With thick high shoes, and hit; long coats. Recreate, O, recreate! The girls start out like a pack of goats. And, on the campus, recreate. Now walk we must, and no books take. Recreate, (), recreate! Daren ' t stand in corners to shiver and shake. While, on the campus, recreate. So with chattering teeth we walk around. Recreate. O, recreate! Praying for the bell to sound, So we may cease to recreate. Inn Maude Nelson. Recreation Ah, dread hour of recreation. Of my strength the sore taxation. With what mad exasperation Do I hear thy hated name ! From thee in contempt 1 turn me. With disgust and scorn 1 spurn thee, How I long to burn and burn thee In the hottest kind of flame. Hideous hour of recreation! Filling me with wild vexation, Driving me to desperation. Source of woe art thou to me. Oh, to call thee what I think thee! Could I in strong chains enlink thee, Ob, exquisite joy, I ' d sink thee To the bottom of the sea! Beatrice Kin ;tler Last Will and Testament of the Seniro Class of 1912 We, the members of the Senior class of the Alabama Girls ' I echnical Institute, being moderately sound in mind and comfortably so in body, with the exception of a few gray hairs and wrinkles (gained by our long re- searches on the Peace Movement), ere we " turn to other fields, " do hereby make the following disposition of our goods and chattels, effects and belongings : FIRST: It is with a feeling of sadness that we hereby bequeath to the incoming graduating class our position as Seniors, Long ' s, " as a back- ground, " and Pancoast ' s poems, our various and sundry privileges, all the responsibilities of the annual, and the warning that Senior life is prose instead of poetry. SECOND : We leave our theme binders to the Freshmen, that they may partake of the wisdom thereof, on the condition that they set aside one day of the vear for fasting, when they shall put on gayest colors and broadest smiles and go to the Senior memorial and thank their stars for the " Senior Class of 1912. " THIRD: If by chance, there be any girl who goes to class with her lesson unprepared, we leave to her our " few and far between, " hard- earned A ' s. FOURTH : To any two members of the Sophomore class whose sole aim and purpose is to graduate from A. G. T. I. with the least possible exertion, (and who to that end, learn only the first and the last questions of their lessons), we bequeath our knowledge of the teachers ' " moods " and class roll-books. FIFTH: Not only to the next Senior class, but to all future classes, we bequeath the comb-playing ceremonies of Hallowe ' en, instituted by us last October 31, and handed down as a sacred trust. SIXTH: To all students we bequeath the pleasure of hearing the characteristic expressions of our teachers, such as, " Per se and specific ex- ample; " " the more you lean the leaner you get; " " be sure to have Long ' s as a background, " and last, but not least, " and such as that. " SEJ ' ENTH : To our " alma mater, " we bequeath our memorial. May it bring to those who gaze upon it none but pleasant memories of the class of 19 I 2. IN WITNESS WHEREOF , we, the class of 19 12, do herewith set our hands and seals and declare this to be our last will and testament on this, the 21st day of May, nineteen hundred and twelve.

The Land of Yesterday ' S - ' HE Land of Yesterday lies close to the Land oi Now, bur between i C j them there is a great wall, the heights oi which we cannot scale n y except with the help of those who know the wall and the country beyond. When we are so fortunate as to catch a glimpse of this Land of Yesterday, we find it a shadowy, phantom-like land; the songs from the cotton fields, even the tramp of soldiers are indistinct, like a half-conscious dream. Back in the sixties there was no A. G. T. I. It our grandmothers chose to learn domestic science, they did so under the tutelage of our great- grandmothers and of our Aunt Dinahs. Although our school did not exist, our chapel did, and was itself a boarding school. There is a dear old lady, living just outside our campus, who attended this school, and she tells many interesting incidents about it. The lower floor of the chapel, she savs, was divided into class-rooms and an entertainment hall, and upstairs was the " dormitory, " occupied by the president ami his wife, several teachers, and the boarding pupils, of whom there were about fifteen. The kitchen, dining-room, and cook ' s apartments were several rods from the main building. The lower part of the campus was then full oi deep gulleys, and the girls, instead of playing basket-ball or strolling about the campus, jumped the gulleys and slid down the sides for pastime. It was on this campus that the first company of soldiers from Montevallo was formed. From the little balcony in front of our chapel, a beautiful young lady presented the flag of stars and bars which the Montevallo ladies had made. The lieutenant who accepted the flag for the company, and made the speech of thanks was a handsome young lawyer ( and thereby hangs a tale ) , whose home was our infirmary, and who now lies in the little stonewalled grave- yard near the campus. As the war progressed, people were continually on the alert for upris- ings among the negroes. Every noise at night, every gathering of the col- ored people was attended with apprehension. Almost all the men and the boys had gone to war, ami those left at home were too feeble for protection. One Friday night, the girls in the little boarding school were lively indeed. One of the girls was going home next day, and the little girl who is now the dear old lady living just outside our campus had special per- mission to come from her boarding house in the village to spend the night in the dormitory. Tomorrow, was holiday, the president was away, and the girls were having a jolly evening. Time, you see, does not change all things. What kind of good times they had we do not know. They did not make candy in chafing dishes, nor did they make mayonnaise in a wash- bowl and beat it with the comb. Possibly they ate peanut-butter sand- wiches and Hershey ' s chocolate, but we doubt it. Surely they, in gay- colored kimonas, didn ' t sit around on rugs, trunks, beds, tables and window seats, and discuss the teachers? Shocking thought! They didn ' t even go to the gym and dance, for there was no gym. But we know they did have a good time, for they were school-girls. It was late when these girls went to bed. The whistle didn ' t blow, nor did the lights wink, for there was no whistle and the lights were not of the winking kind. Perhaps some cracked voice sounded down the hall, " Girls, get to your rooms. " Anyway, they " got, " and talked and talked; then dreamed and dreamed. At least, everyone dreamed except two girls who sat on the floor before the lire, and with their hands clasped about their knees, told girlish secrets. " Mercy! What was that? " The two girls jumped up and looked at each other with terror-stricken faces. A sound of cracking window glass, of doors knocked down, of furniture over-turned, of heavy footst eps rush- ing through the house, a second crashing of glass, — then all was still. Be- fore the girls could think, a teacher rushed in, — " It ' s an uprising, girls, " she hoarsely whispered. " We shall be killed! What shall we do! " By this time the two girls who were asleep in the room awoke. They locked the door and piled against it trunks, tables, and whatever else they could get their hands upon. Then they listened. All was quiet. I hey supposed that the other inmates were all murdered. They waited breathlessly, but no sound could be heard except the barking of a dog far across the village. At last the little girl who was spending the night in the dormitory could endure the dread silence no longer, so, amid many protestations from the others, she threw up the window and called for Jennie, the cook. Jennie came, grumbling and muttering: " Whut fur yo chilluns wanter disturb my res ' fur? You ' uns aint heerd nuthin ' ; jes ' only a bad dream. Go back to yo beds. " " But, Aunt Jennie, we weren ' t asleep, and if we had been, three of us wouldn ' t have dreamed the same thing. " So Aunt Jenny was sent off to the nearest house to get a young soldier who was home on a furlough — if the negroes had not already been there. Soon came Aunt Jennie and the soldier. The frightened party went first to the rooms of the president ' s wife and to the rooms of the other teachers and girls. Everyone was safe. " I tol ' yo so, I tol yo so. Havin ' a pore old cullud ' oman traipsin round here dis cole night. I ' se gwineter have rheumatiz sho ' " grumbled Aunt Jennie. Down stairs they went next. There in one of the rooms lay broken glass and overturned desks. Muddy footprints led into an opposite room across the hall where furniture was again overturned and windows shat- tered. It is well that there were only fifteen girls instead of five hundred! Finally the teachers persuaded the girls to go back to bed, provided the young soldier would remain to keep guard. The next morning it was found that a patrol in going his rounds the night before, had come upon a small band of negroes. At the sight of him, they fled. Some had run in the direction of the chapel, and had burst through it, thinking to elude the patrol. If the party, the night before, had followed Aunt Jennie to her cabin they might have discovered more than they did discover. As it was, the white people never knew who the negroes were, and the outbreak was never attempted again. After this, the parents realized the danger to which their daughters were exposed, (don ' t you suppose marvelous letters were written home?) and removed them from school. After the war, it was a long time before education was thought of again, so our little boarding school was left to the pigeons and the sparrows. When we assemble again in the old chapel to enjoy or to endure a lec- ture, let us be glad that we are living in a time of peace, and in a school where the most threatening cloud is no darker than measles. Winnie Davis Neely, ' ii. Our Hero You may talk about your heroes, Like Jackson, Grant, and Lee, But they are " hot the only kind Of heroes we agree. He is so young to be so groat ; Oh! teachers, let him be; His life will mean so much to us, I ' m sure you all can see. Our school has one of whom we boast. His courage we adore, Though it is not the same as Lee ' s Who faced the cannon ' s roar. He left his Alma Mater dear, In some far eastern state; To A. G. T. I. straight he came — Our hero tall and straight. But why a hero is he called ? And what ' s his name, you ask ? Then I will try to make it plain, Tho ' ' twill be quite a task. I dare not tell you more than this, That H begins his name ; Now that is all you need to know ; Work out the puzzle game. And he ' s a hero just because It takes a hero right, To make his debut in a school With only girls in sight. Mariglen Cornelius. In after years when 12 ' s are old.

The Rime of the Little Freshman (The author acknowledges having read The Ancient Manner. ) It is a timid little Fresh, Ami he stoppeth one of three. " H thy one long year of learning here, ( ), Sophomore, counsel me. " The chapel doors are opened wide. And should I not go in ? ' The Find Out Club, ' " the Freshman cried, " We ' ll organize and win. " The Sophomore holds her with her hand. " That is the Club! " quoth she, " The one to help the new Freshman, " Then soon her hand, dropped she. She held the Freshman with her eye. The eager girl stood still. And listened like a three years ' child ; The Sophomore hath her will. " Important things I now tell you; Go tell the ones inside, I give you hints on what to do; " The Freshman did abide. " The main committees you must know, Admission and schedule: rhe two entitle you to go As Freshman in the school. " The next to take you into charge. The chairman, you must know. " The Freshman ' s eye grew very large, The words were uttered low. " The discipline committee knows. Whatever bad you do; To it, the naughty Freshman goes And takes what then is due. " There are two most important bells: And one is recreation ; Don ' t mix it with the one that tells The time for meditation. " They Doth mean movement, do not doubt, et go in opposite ways ; If one goes in, instead of out. The penalty she pays. " Now one thing more, I must not fail ; To give warning strong; About the old, old measle tale, And then I will be done. " Measles, measles, everywhere, And all we girls do shrink When Dr. Palmer does declare, ' It seems we do not think. ' " Sad is the fate of one who fails To do as I advise. Report to Miss Mellown each day, And be on the safe side. " Alone, alone, all, all alone, Alone when exposed, is she. Around that well known place we call The dear infirmary. " The germs are here, the germs are there. The germs are all around ; No visiting or affections share. " The " Fresh " fell in a swound. Still as a slave before his lord, The Freshman hath no blast; Her great bright eye most silently L p to the Soph is cast. " O, shrieve me, shrieve me. Sophomore, " The Freshman crossed her brow, " Why told you not this tale before? C), shrieve me, shrieve me now! " " Farewell, farewell! but this I tell To thee, new, timid one : She doeth best, who studieth well, Till study hall is done. " The Sophomore, whose eye is bright. Tells Freshman nothing more ; But leaves her to " Find Out Club, " Close by the chapel door. The Freshman went like one who ' s stunned, And was of sense forlorn ; A sadder and a wiser girl She rose the morrow morn. Charlotte Savage. What Mousie Heard {An Allegory). ' ILENCE reigned supreme in the dormitory, and Mousie took this opportunity to forage tor the stray crusts of bread that had escaped the eyes of the hungry girls. Just as he poked his head out, he was stopped by a grumbling noise. He drew back in dismay, for gathered around Stairway, engaged in serious conyersation. were Hall- tree and Bulletin Board, who generally kept their distance very well. Mousie decided to listen, and this is what he heard: " I tell you, friends, I cannot stand this state of affairs much longer, " groaned Halltree. " Day after day, those individuals called teachers stop, cast a lingering, coquettish glance at me, and then trip by. They do this, of course, only because they want to look nice for the appreciative young creatures at their tables. But I am tired of it; my poor face will break, or turn to stone if it receives many more such Medusa-like glances. And that is not all; I am made the recipient of the hideous creations which I think are called hats. Sometimes I wonder that Dish Pan and Coal Scut- tle do not go on a strike at the thought of being imitated for such pur- poses. " His heated speech was cut short by Stairway, who said: " You think your lot a hard one, but compared with mine, it ought to be joyful. Here I have stood for fifteen long years; there has not been a minute of the school day that cruel heels have not pressed themselves into my bleeding face. The girls are warned to step lightly in the classroom, but no one ever takes pity on poor me. You have a chance to rest in the dark hours of the night, but I am disturbed even then by teachers creeping around to see if their tired, over-worked charges are asleep. My voice has been ruined under the strain, and now I can produce only ugly grating sounds. " " Knough, " exclaimed Bulletin Board. " I know my life is the hardest, most trying one of all ; because of the awful discipline committee, I can never publish any except unwelcome tidings. Everyone hates me; what is the use of living after all? " Just then a soft, warm radiance filled the room as Light silently entered. The talking ceased, and Halltree and Bulletin Board rushed back to their accustomed places. Light looked around inquiringly, and, after a pause, Stairway timidly said to the newcomer: " How do you always manage to look so bright and happy? People treat me badly, and I can not be cheerful. " " That is easy enough, " merrily laughed Light. " I think only about how much people need me. and about the good I can do: I never worry about whether thev want me or not, or what they say about me; and the bright- ness and happiness just come.

The state of Virginia has always prided herself upon her delectable viands, but one of our sophomores has made a discovery that deprives Virginia of the honor of having originated one of her most famous dishes.

" While a domestic science class was performing an experiment in cook- ing, the alcohol lamp caught one fire. During the excitement, Miss Deasy walked in and very calmly inquired, " What experiment is this? " Vinn — " Fave, have you seen the matron about getting that room? " Faye — " Yes, but she said that it had already been exposed of. " Rebecca (reading English literature) — " Have you looked up who ababbebec is? " Hence loathed Note-books! That haunt us from freshman to senior year, Bringing main a bitter tear, And adding weariness to our youthful looks. Seek out some institute of learning. Where despised idleness spreads his drowsy wings, And absolute serenity reigns. There, to that place where labor is unknown, Such as we bemoan, do, anel give us that peace for which ( )ur souls are longing. Rat — " Mrs. Portis, will you please send John up to my room?

Do you think a Grecian athlete. Say, for instance, Hercules, Could perform with clubs and dumb-bells, On his head, or heels, or knees ?

' INCE the beginning oi time, man h;is manifested a tendency to boast of his position, and his importance in the world of affairs by reason thereof. I he dog, universally deemed man ' s most faithful friend, has acquired the tendency to boast of his master ' s position and relative importance in the r ealm about him. This fact was discovered recently, when the following bit of conversation among three dogs was overheard. The dogs were Montenegro Palmer, the lean, yellow town dog that comes up on Wednesday and Sunday evenings to . W. C. A. serv- ice, ami Moses ills. I hey belong, respectively, to Dr. Palmer, one of the transfer men down town, and that Mr. Houston Wills, whose fame is treated in A. (i. T. I. history. As usual, these dogs were gathered in the assembly hall, and the person who made the discovery was passing just at this point in the conversation: " I tell you, " viciously snapped Montenegro, lifting his bruised paw. lest it should smart under the weight of his statement, " My master is the most important t actor in the school. He is president, and any intelligent piece of canmity (a term he had heard in zoology class) ought to know that there could be no school without a president. " Encouraged by the effect of his speech, he continued: " Furthermore, without my master, the president ( with a significant gesture of the tail), there could be no moral or physical improvement among the girls. He tells them daily how to avoid being thoughtless, how to avoid becoming infected by germs, and the two or three other things that make an ideal student body — so there! " mopping his moistened brow. " But, " growled the town dog, " My master is proprietor of a transfer company. If he did not bring the girls over, there could be no school, though there were a hundred presidents! " So saying, he settled down with the air of one who knows he has scored a point, ami hasn ' t energy enough to pursue the argument. But here Montenegro retorted quickly, " It is a well known fact that every A. Ct. I . I. girl is required to walk forty-five minutes every day, so that by the vnd oi her prep year she has developed sufficient power of locomotion to render her independent of the transfer man. " Up to this time, Moses Wills had looked on in amused silence. At this juncture he looked up with that knowing twinkle, sometimes manifested by men who have cause to feel secure in their position. Striding forward, and assuming a poise (acquired from his master) possibly only when one has absolute knowledge of security of position and importance, he casually rejoined : " Well, now, neither of you has reasoned after the fashion of Epictetus. (Montenegro shifted uneasily and a groan escaped the town dog). Nor have you adhered to the teachings of Epicurus, who held that the supreme end in life is to eat, drink and be merry, for to-morrow ye may take measles. ' According to that philosopher, it is my master who is the factor in the school. Since no boxes are to be received at this institution, it is due solely to his connection with it that the girls have anything whatsoever to feast upon. " This profound philosophy was unprepared for. The mentioning of Epictetus and Epicurus caused Montenegro to remember an engagement with Dr. Wilkinson to dress his paw, and the town dog, feeling slightly stunned, thought best to resort to the open. Moses, determined to present his strongest point, followed them and emphatically added: " Pursuing your own line of argument, there would be no school without my master ' s presence here, for though there were a hundred presidents, and girls in proportion, few of the teachers would care to stay to teach the darling innocents if he were absent. " Here Moses remembered the importance of a violin lesson, and saunt- ered across the campus. Perhaps Moses acquired his fondness for music from his master. Flora Belle Surles. First Sufferer — " Well ! the examination wasn ' t so hard. We had an optional. " Sufferer To Be — " You did? I hope we won ' t have it, because I don ' t know how to work it. " Bi-weekly lectures and entertainments are well attended and much en- joyed by the girls, as this is virtually the only time in which they have to sleep.
