Life at Stout
T IS indeed with awe that the unsophisticated Junior receives her first im-
pression of Stout. On approaching the main entrance her interest is
drawn to the motto above the door: t'For the Promotion of Learning,
Skill, Industry and Honor." This is to serve as an inspiration for two
years. The door is Hung open by a liveried tootman who receives the haugh-
ty "Thank you" from the ungrateful Senior, and a demure smile from the
as-yet uninitiated Junior. Her thoughts which have been .soaring heaven-
ward are sharply brought back to earth by the mundane sign, '4Please clean
your feet on the mat." A second door guards this storehouse of intellectual
attainnient. Here begins the toilsome climb, in steps, which is symbolic of
the path to knowledge.
Not only does this door guard the intellectual attainment but also the
prized male contingent ot Stout. A heterogeneous mass is this with but
a single thought. A sign up on the bulletin board explains their eager quest
---"Gym Dance, Friday night. 10 cents." They scrutinize the ascending
throng with the eye of a connoisseur. Four is man allotted share of this
galaxy of girls and his must be a wise -choice. One favors a willowy brunette,
a.nother a haughty blonde. while others await the oncomers tor the hour is
"But when the final gong had rung,
Too long to his ideal he'd clung.
So forth he ventures to the Gym,--alone,
To lind her there and take her home'
J The Junior unconscious ot all these mental prognostications on the first
floor, reaches the second, She pauses on the top stair abashed, afraid, alone
in this multitude of bestriped femininity. Eagerly she seeks the Eldorado of
this pushing, jostling mass of craning necks. From a square of canvas on
the wall comes the daily message of good cheer-"See me in the office to-
day,', 'LPractice teachers' conference," "'Lost-a fountain pen." Having
severed all possible connections with the outside world, she dons her stripes
and begins to serve a two years' sentence.
S-he is led into a room of Stygian darkness where her father's hard-
earned ducats are Wrung from her by a comely young man.
Forth she ventures to the library where she is presented with several
small pamphlets such as Hutchinson ls Food and Dietetics. Only the smiles
of the librarian stay the fast-ebbing spirits of this poor triendless creature.
But pause a moment to behold the magnificence that surrounds you. Three
spacious rooms contain the literature of this institution of learning. These
ii? rf"f'jIiWfv'f- 'jim 3
Exo f i x? ' - A-,
gg s re ii as it nate Q
rooms sumptuously appointed with everything to make the erstwhile irksome
task of studying an unalloyed joy. Shelves line the dignified walls and hold
rare old copies of our greatest writers of Art and Science. A gentle glow
is diffused over all by the system of indirect lighting. A system of Ventila-
tion that is the acrne of human ingenuity insures a perfect circulation of air.
All these are minor details that only time and acquaintance can impress
upon the mind.
Adjoining and above are the offices of the business staff and the suite
of rooms of the President. These are all that an unlimited expenditure of
thought, time and wealth can make them.
A time honored custom of the school is its weekly meeting of student
and faculty body. The faculty is arrayed upon the platform, the cynosure of
our reverend eyes, An occasional vacant chair portends the absence of one,
and the otherwise festive occasion is saddened. Our President addresses on
questions of the day, HGetting a positionf, tflieeping Rules," or occasionally
shares with us his travels and we revel in the joys of Continuation Schools.
Sometimes one of our young men is moved to speech, his intent may be good
but his words proclaim that age and experience alone can make of him a silver-
tongued orator or a Chauncey Depeiv. And then We sing, yea verily we sing,
and our anthems assail high Heaven and invoke the wrath of Jupiter. 'fThe
spirit is willing but the flesh is weakf' Wliile we are here we may ob-
ject to, wail against. or even jest at these Assemblies, but long, long after-
wards in our heart of hearts they will find a warm spot.
Although fraternities and sororities are not permitted in our school,
the young men have organized themselves in two clubs, namely, the Manley
and the Stoutonian. These are patterned after the Knickerbocker and other
of the foremost organizations of America. Theirs has a further purpose,
than social and educational value. It is the protection of its members
against the onslaught of the determined young ladies who predominate in
Stout. "United we stand, divided we fall," is printed on their doormats.
Unparalleled cultural advantages are offered by the city. Two mo-
tion picture theatres cater to the fastidious taste of the community. The elite
sit in bejewelled radiance in the horseshoe while those less fortunate grace the
pit. Occasionally a company of stranded barnstormers gives a production of
some relic of the prehistoric days of the drama, such as 'LMadame X" and
f'The Third Degree." Although the school is non-sectarian, one form of re-
ligion prevails. It is nameless and is held outdoors in groups of two, in se-
cluded spots, darkness being conducive to worship.
Lest in perusal you mistake the purpose of this effort, a word of ex-
planation is necessary. lt is not a mere exploitation of our school to others,
but it is an effort to make us remember in after years the unusual advantages
we enjoyed at Stout.

The Alms of a Manual Training Teacher
HE question of the aims of a manual training teacher perplexes the stu-
dent who has studied this phase of education at a preparatory school and
who has had during this time, access to a large number of references
which to a great extent are more or less confusing in character and which lead
to no definitely-formulated plan whereby the student may intelligently see to
what dehnite ends his energies will be guided. A number of questions -may
be propounded in the mind of the student. Wliat is it that I desire to a.c-
complish a.s a teacher of manual training H! NVhat definite purpose is thought
of at the time that these energies are put forth? ls there any exact goal to
which to bring the pupil in my charge? Is there any result or group of re-
sults in my mind at all times which the relationship of me to my pupils will
bring about? Should there be a more definite purpose than that which
broadens, develops. makes better?
ln general, the teacher wants the pupils to become healthy individuals,
morally, mentally and physically. He wants them to acquire facts and to
learn to classify them. He wants them to become better men since he was
a factor in their shaping. But, is this sufficient? The fact that a shop is
provided with tools and machines are features in the teaching and that cer-
tain mental and motor activities may arise in the child that cannot otherwise
be obtained. If there is no other result to be obtained than the vague one
to broaden, make better, from the use of these tools and the hand, then the
use of these tools and machines become not a means to an end but an accom-
paniment to the teaching. Other means less expensive may be used to gain
the same ends. V
lt is evident that there should be very dehnite results or effects cul-
minating from a series of mental activities which the use of these tools and the
teaching bring about or create. A statement of a few facts recognized by
all educators Will serve as a nucleus around which to build these aims: ill
manual training is not trade development, neither is it specialized training,
C25 it is purely developmental in character, C35 though of importance, skill in
tool processes is an incidental feature, C41 the products 'or models are of
little value other than that of so much evidence.
The aims of the labors of a manual training teacher may be summed
up as follows: C15 to create in the pupil a consciousness of power that can
override environment and to which yielding will be a remote possibility, also
to create at the same time a Wholesome respect for this power and a sense of
good judgment in its exercise, C25 to teach the truth, C33 to create the habit
of careful thought, the careful selection after mental Weighing, also the habit
of ca.reful execution, C45 to develop an appreciation of those qualities which
are pleasing and harmonious. His results should be self-con1'idence, self-re-
liance, industry, self-respect, earnestness, carefulness, accuracy, good judg-
ment, dexterity, neatness, cleanliness and a sense of the beautiful and of the
litness of things. J. B. H., '14,

OR several years there has been little or no interest taken in literary Work
by the students of the Manual Training Department. Early this year a
number of students assembled and organized a society to which the name
"The Gavelersf' was given. Since that time the society has experienced a
healthy and legitimate growth. The aims may be appreciated and under-
stood by quoting a portion of the fundamental law governing the society:
L'The object of this society shall be to create a spirit of greater fel-
lowship among its members and to inspire in them self-confidence and self-
reliance when before others through and by means of exercises in public
speaking and in the order of parliamentary practicef'

HE Pliilomaitliean Society was orgzuiized in 1912, for the purpose of
creating the spirit of good fellowship, of acquiring the ability to use cor-
rect English, and of acquiring general informaton through the united
cltorts ot its members.
Since 1912 the membership of the society has steadily increased. During
the school year 1912-13 there were twenty-eight members. At the present
time there are eighty members.
The work clone in the society at Stout this year has not been as much
as We had planned and desired to do. But now with such ar large member-
ship and by Working with the particular aim of bettering ourselves and
Stout, We expect to accomplish more the next. months and to have the society
started with ai good foundation for the next school year.

Who's Who and Why in 1925
Just Some of "The, Gavelersv
sept. 21, 1925.
In your last letter you asked me about some of the members of 'fThe
Gavelersf' In my wandei-ings over the States, I occasionally meet some o
them or hear about them. l walked into a shoe store in Oklahoma City a
few weeks ago. and who should walk up to me but my old friend of other
days. M. J. Bradley. l was somewhat surprised to find that M. J. had left
the manual training business and embarked in shoeeselling, but he explained
that he thought he could get rich by saving the time that others spent in
climbing to the upper shelves in a shoe store. Associated with Bradley is
fjhas. Hyde. From all appearances it seems that their business venture has
been a success. In fact they told me con'fidentially that a. large portion of
it was due to Stout and especially to Scientihc Management and Mr. Jarvis.
I inquired about Belk, the lad with the golden hair. Hyde remarked
that he was a well-known florist in Idaho. VVondering why this change, I
asked the reason. Bradley spoke up and said, f'Haven't you heard? He
went crazy over Daisies, black-eyed Susans, shortly after he left Stout and
has not been able to withstand their influencefi
l met Geo. Dreseher in company with R. L. Hugelen at Moline, Ill.,
where Hugelen is Director of Manual Training. George is selling paint for
an Eastern firm, stains, etc., adapted to manual training projects, are his
specialties. George remarked that while attending the Chautauqua Assembly
he heard a. lecture '4Otto Solomang His Life and Wei-li," by F. L. Curran, one
of the most prominent manual training teachers of the United States.
Mr. Christoifel is at the head of a large factory located at Monroe,
Green County, Wisconsin. This firm manufactures a machine for turning
Swiss cheeses and so great has been the demand that branch houses have been
organized all over the world. The factory is a model one and very clearly
shows the effects of "Efficiency and the Realization of lts Aims." .
' Frank 07Brien has been a member of the New York Police Force for
three years and expects to be promoted to Captain in a few weeks. His
work has been excellent in that he has reformed all the crooks that ever
worked for him.
H. E. Olson and Harvey Nelson are located at Bettrami, Minnesota.
Olson is a blacksmith and Nelson a contractor of national reputation. Both
I know that you remember R. R. Deimer, editor of The Annual. Well,
a surprise awaited me because I believed that in him lay the rudiments and
possibilities of an eminent Writer. But, alas! how often are our thoughts
misleading! I saw him about four Weeks ago. He was i.n the Wiscoiisiii

In coming from Chicago to lllenomonie last week, a newsboy sold me
a t'.Dunn County Neivsfl The face of the boy seemed to be familiar and a
few minutesi thought brought the name to mind. It was "Cutey" Krebs.
As l scanned the pages of the paper, I chanced upon an editorial entitled
'!Wl15f the Titanic Stink" by Chas. E. Eslinger. l called upon Chas. E.
Eslinger shortly after my arrival and found that t.hrough his application of
the t'Principles of Industrial Economicsl' The News had prospered and had
become a daily of wide circulation.
VVonderful has been the change at Stout. Magnificent buildings and
well kept lawns and campus. The management has changed also. Mr. M. J.
Nelson is at present Director and Mr. Buxton has been selected as President.
The enrollment numbers over 1.200 students. The Summer Session was on at
this time and it was my pleasure to renew some old acquaintances. Mr.
Campion was giving dancing lessons at the Gym.
Mr. Wliite, ivho is Superintendent of Instruction at Knapp, NVisconsin,
was trying to obtain the services of Sherman Cook. who had just closed a
very successful year in teaching manual training at Elmwood, Wiscoiisin. Mr.
Sandvig was assisting Mr. Grubert in the wood-turning classes. From him l
found out that Fred Sheldreiv is making his mark on the vaudeville stage in
the Yon Yonson Company.
I tried to find out about Mr. High, but nobody seemed to know any-
thing about him, not even the Stout Office. I was told, however. that just
before he left Stout in 1914, the Office received an inquiry from the NV. J.
Burns Detective Agency. The attaches surmised that the Agency had heard
of his excellent record on the Student Council and had securedhis services at
at fancy salary. '
You no doubt have heard that John Rautio. present United States Sena-
tor from Wiscoiisiii. is considered the leading candidate for nomination for
the presidency on the Prohibition-Socialist ticket. Sincerely yours.

Stout Athletic Board
THLETICS under the direction of the Athletic Board of Control Were so
decidedly successful during the season of 1912-13 that the system in
Vogue then was adopted by the students, assuring success in a large
measure, before the season had approached.
At a. meeting, which Mr. Mauthe called for the purpose, Erle Stone-
man was named by the Senior boys to act as their representative, While the
Juniors chose Claude French to act in a like capacity.
Mr. Olson as Alumni representative, and Mr. Brunkow and Mr. Steen-
dahl as faculty representatives, completed the Board.
These men were acquainted with all lines of athletics and hence were
naturally able to be judges and administrators of athletic affairs and events.
To their ceaseless and untiring efforts was due the fact that We were
able to successfully carry out the heaviest and most expensive athletic sched-
ules that our lnstitution has ever had.
The Board did its work well and deserves commendable comment for
tasks well performed.

EPTEMBER had hardly gotten into its teens, when the football coach an-
nounced that practice would begin and in consequence, the lake, creek
and the favorite lolling places knew half of their sojourners no more. The
first call brought forth 36 men, of all kinds, with and Without experience, but
each and all determined to try and Win a position on the regulars. -For sev-
eral days these men did most everything imaginable to the ball. They
punted, kicked, passed and rolled on it While the coaches sized up the ma-
terial at hand, of which only four men were veterans. Haack, Achtenhagen,
Morgan and Stoneman had served their apprenticeship on the Stout eleven
the preceding year.
After several days of preliminary practice, the hard, relentless grind
began and until the sun dropped down behind the hills and hid itself entirely

from view, tl1e n1en worked on under the direction of Coaches Quigley and
The co1n111o11 view of all was to give Stout tl1e best team sl1e l1ad
ever had and each and all strictly observed training rules.
Tl1e coaches worked out plays which would rival a Chinese puzzle in
their unsolvability, and when practice was not lllfllllgetl in, tl1e gridiron war-
riors to be, studied formations, which had bee11 invented for use against
teams our superior in weight.
Manager Mauthe l1ad worked out a very heavy schedule but as the
month neared its end, the team had l'OU11ClGLl into shape a11d tl1e men were
determined' and ready to conquer all 2lClYGl"S2ll'l0S and make football history
The first game was played against Eau Claire on September 27th at
On this sunny September afternoon, some twenty men trotted out on
the gridiron. clad in the regalia of war, with never a doubt but that there
would be little or no trouble in vanquishing tl1e enemy.
Vile were doomed to disappoi11tn1ent, however, the echo of the referee's
whistle had hardly died away, announeiiig the beginning of the play when
Lovell, one of our most dependable guards, was carried off the field with a dis-
located shoulder. Gottschalk, a trusty end, followed him a few minutes later
with a wrenched hip.
These accidents, combined with the unexpected strength that Eau Claire
showed, see111ed to unnerve the team. for the exhibition was not a football ex-
hibition. Eau Flaire crossed the east limeline iirst and kicked goal in tl1e
first quarter. ln tl1e second quarter by a series of line bucks mixed with con-
siderable ginger, Stout carried the ball up the field and Bailey took it over
from the tive yard line, Morgan kicked goal. The half ended with tl1e score
7 to 7. Eau Claire came back with spirit the third quarter and by a series of
plays and a pretty fake, scored another touchdown. This was all there was
to the scoring. ln the last few ininntes of the play. Stout fairly played them
off their feet, but the game was lost,-it was a forlorn hope.
O11 October 4th, with a reconstructed line-up. tl1e team journeyed to
St. Paul and played the strong Hamline ull" team. The fellows knew it
was impossible to win, but it was possible to hold down the score. On a
muddy held in a drencliing rain, Hamlinels beef trust took our measure to
the tune of All to O.
Occasional iiashes of form showed the coaches that the material was
there and tl1e next week the practices were severer than ever. A white-
washed ball was used when the shades of evening fell, making it impossible to
see one of a darker hue.
On October 11th, tl1e team went to River Falls to contend with the
pedagogs. The game was an excellent exhibition of the sport. Both
teams played their best a11d the issue was more or less in doubt until tl1e

timekeepers whistle hlew. River Falls started off with a rush and scored
hefore the Stout aggregation had finished scanning the schoohnarms on the
side hnes. Our team retaliated, however, in the second quarter. French
and Bailey took the hall down the field on a series of cross-hucks and Stone-
man hroke through the line for the team 's first touchdown. The half' end-
ed with the score a tie and -Stout pressing the opposition hard. The teachers
came hack in the third quarter and proceeded to score another touchdown,
failing to kick goal. Against penalizations that were discouraging, the hoys
worked doggedly, taking the hall down the field only to lose it in the
shadow of the goal posts. The Falls fumhled. however, on the first play
and when the referee had pried all hut the last man it was found that HDoc"
Haack had recovered the hall. Stoneman was shoved over on the next
play for another touchdown and Morgans toe rewarded us with another
Witli hut a few minutes to play the hlue and white garhed athletes
took the hall down the held with a rush. Their onward progress was stayed
for a. moment ou the forty-yard line and it was from here that f'Spider"
calmly dropped hack and kicked the hall against the wind, over thehar and
hetween the posts. lt had scarcely heen recovered when the whistle pro-
claimed that the game was over. Score 13 to 17 in favor of Stout.
On October 18th we took on the pedagogs from Stevens Point. The
game was not what it should have heen for it was marred hy considerable rough
play. Stevens Point got settled first and after receiving the hall. worked
it up thc field on a series of hucks and passes, scoring a touchdown. Eades
for the visitors failed to kick goal, while his teammates also failed to score
any more that day. The Stout defense was what its name implied for the
remainder of the day. while on offense they opened up holes through which
Achtenhagen, Bailey, Jackson and Stoneman went repeatedly for long gains.
Our eleven failed to score in the first quarter, hut in the second quar-
ter Bailey solved their combination and took the pig-skin over. Achtenhagen
f'ailed to kick goal. ln the third quarter, Stoneman scored on a line plunge
from the eight-yard line and a few minutes later several delayed passes and
a few end runs and we were on the Point 's ten-yard line again, from where
French crossed goal with the hall. Both attempts for goal were failures.
ln the last quarter the visitors could not withstand the onslaught of our Stout-
ites and Bailey again took the hall over. Morgan's attempt to kick goal
went shy and the score stood Stevens Point 6, Stout 24. '
After a rest of two weeks, the team went to La Crosse on November
lst, where they met the Normalites of that town. The field, which was loose
and sandy, was not what our hoys were accustomed to and the plays were
not gotten away fast enough. Neither team scored the first. quarter hut in
the second period, La Crosse used their plays to advantage and took the hall
over hut failed at goal. ln the third quarter they got dangerously near goal
hut the line here presented a wonderful defense and the quarter ended with a

Hr "' 1w.:E:-C5 - .,
score of 6 to 0 in favor of La Crosse. ln the last quarter Stout showed some
fight and after taking the ball to the thirty-yard line, Morgan drop-kicked,
scoring our three points for the day, Another attempted drop-kick a few
minutes later failed and the Nornialites, seemingly angered at our infringe-
ment into their territory, rushed the ball down the field and scored another
touchdown. For the second time they failed to kick goal. The game
ended with the score 12 to 3 in favor of La Crosse. George McCoy suffered a
broken knee in this game while the line men spent the following week at the
homes of lady friends! having them pick .sandburs out of their ha.nds.
The last game of the season, on Nov. 8th, against the University of
Minnesota Aggies is the game which will live long in the minds of those who
participated in it as well as Stout followers and enthusiasts. While the
November sun descended into the west, the blanketed gridiron warriors stood
behind the old grandstand and listened to the final words of the coach. They
would meet together to play as a team no more, and feeling that then, if ever,
their efforts ought to be united, they spoke words of encouragement to each
other and then trotted out to face advensaries their superior in weight, coach-
ing and experience. After a little preliminary signal work, the game was
on and those who braved the elements forgot thegcolgl and all things else for
they were witnessing a real gridiron battle. Each team begrudged the other
inches and fought and struggled as two units. The first quarter was with-
out results to either side. Stout received the ball and promptly began ham-
mering the Aggies, defense. After making downs twice, it was lost and
the Aggies got their try. The quarter ended with the ball in the Aggies,
territory. ln the second quarter the Stout offense was too much for the
Gophers, and while they were trying to locate the trouble, Jackson went
around the end for a touchdown. Morgan kicked goal. Receiving the kick,
the M. T. boys again invaded the enemy's territory and on the thirty-yard
line at a difficult angle, Morgan '.s attempted drop-kick failed. The half ended
with Stout on the long end of a 7 to 0 score. .ln the second half, the Aggies
came back with renewed vigor, but our defense solved their formations while
their greater weight and strength did not counterbalance the determination
of the blue-sweatered men, who were now playing a defensive game. In
the fourth period of play, the Agriculturists resorted to the forward pass
again and again, but it netted them .small gains. The game ended with
the ball in Stout's possession on their own twenty-five yard line. Final
score, Stout 7, Aggies O. There was no particular star, there were eleven of
them, playing together and working like a might.y machine, whose many
parts combined and interlocking make it an unconquerable combination. It
was a. fitting close to a strenuous season.

pst Mit UM! EARL QUIGLEY CCoachj-"Quig's" most eflicient work last year earn-
ed for him the position of coach again this year. He came from Oshkosh
where football is as much of an activity as match-making. "Quig" was a
born coach, it being natural for him to lead fellows and invent new plays
No coach ever worked more faithfully with his men than did "Quig." Rain
or storm, in fair and foul Weather, he was always there encouraging, advis-
ing and admonishing his men. "Quig" would cut fussing any time for
football. Th 2 ' ' ' f -

cision and growth to "Quig's" tireless, whole-soulod efforts to make it
everything it became.
ERLE STONEIVIAN fC3l3t.l. -
"Ston3"' drifted into our midst from
Manitowoc, Vvis., where he had won
honors in track work, in basketball
and baseball. He brought with him
no football experience but a plenti-
ful supply of good will and strength,
"Stony" stands 6 feet and at the
tender age of 24, tips the scales at
184 pounds. He played a wonderful
game at offensive fullback and filled
his oflice of captain in a most ad-
mirable manner, making few mis-
takes and many wise decisions. He
was never known to be hot-headed
or lose control of his temper. I-Ie
will graduate this year, much to the
sorrow of the football fans.
JOHN O. STEENDAHL, Assistant Coach and Manager.-Received his
High School education in the Menomonie schools. As a student, Mr.
Steendahl starred in track Work as Well as being a member of other ath-
letic teams. After taking the Stout course, from which he graduated in
1905, he went to La Junta, Colorado, where he had charge of the football
team. Mr. Steenclahl's wide experience and invaluable suggestions were
a great help to the team. He was quick to perceive the smaller things
that needed attention and the team owes a good part of its success to him.

EARL NIORGAN.-"Spider" comes from the Sawdust City. will be just
old enough to vote next fall, is G feet 2 inches and still growing, and bal-
ances the weights when set at 176 pounds. "Spider" played on the High
School squad at Oshkosh, dividing his attention between football and
dancing. He is a toe artist of no mean accomplishment on either a
football field or a ballroom floor. His well-directed kicks helped mater-
ially to swell our scores. while as an end he was a hard tackler and
interference that got by him was "some interference." "Spider" goes
out on the dinky in June to face situations on fields other than foot-
got his experience at Kent, VVasb..
where he played on the High School
team three years as halfback and
end. He is 18 years of age, is 5 feet
S inches tall and his pluck, speed
and energy, if summed up, equal 152
pounds. He played left-half in a
most eflicient manner, his speed and
ability to keep his feet While carry-
ing the ball were wonderful for so
small a man and he early earned a
position on- the first squad. He re-
mains to become part of the nucleus
around which an excellent team
should be built next year.
EDWARD GIBSON.-"Gibby" is one of the products of A1-kansaw.
NVis. He is 22 years old, Weighs 198 pounds and defies gravitational
force to the length of 5 feet 11 inches. "Gibby" was more of a natural
fusser than he was a football player, but by constant practice and
close application to the game, he developed into a guard with decided
ability to hold or break up things alike. Many a play that resulted
in yards gained for the blue and white, was sent through his position.
He was one of the best exemplincations We had of "The Stout Football
Team." He graduates in June and his position to be filled as he iilled
it necessitates the acquiring of a good man next year.

PARKS LESLIE BAILEY.-"Parks," the human motor, came to
us from Batavia. Ill., where he played football, basketball and base-
ball for four years "Parks" was on the basketball squad that won
the championship of Illinois in 1912. He stands 5 feet 10 inches,
weighs 175 pounds and is 22 years old. This body graced with a head
which lost itself occasionally. but which knew not the meaning
of the word "fear," could indeed be called a human motor, for this
individuals performances were nothing short of phenomenal.
The position played by "Parks" was right half-back, and so well
did he fill it that his teammates in recognition of his worth, elected
him to the captaincy for next year, which position he will no doubt
fill very ably.
FRED FLANDERS.-"Fritz" brought
a great deal of football prestige with
him. for he came from Oshkosh, VVis.,
where he played center for the High
School team that did not lose a game
during the seasons of 1909-10-11. Fred
could preside over the ball on a football
team as well as he could over a Bible
class when called upon to do so. "Fritz"
measured 5 feet 715 inches with his shoes
off. has reached the age of 24 and was
the lightest man on the team, weighing
but 138 pounds. Fred used his upper
story to good advantage. however. and
made brains do the work of avoirdupois
in many instances. He receives his sheep-
skin this summer.
OTTO CARL HAACK.-The left guard with the Jewish physiog
and Dutch characteristics is a native of Monroe, Wisconsin. where he
played on the High School team for three years. He is 5 feet 10
inches in height, Weighs 158 and is 22 years of age. Wfhen "Doc"
got his Dutch up. he could get down and spill them all, which he did
at many a critical moment. thus stemming the tide which would have
borne defeat with it. "Doc" is the oldest son of a family. which
probably accounts for his particular attachment for "Ol"-sons. He

GEORGE NlcCOY.-Up from Estherville, iowa, came "Mac" last fall.
with 175 pounds of brawn and muscle, 5 feet and 10 inches of displace-
ment and a head over which twenty-six winters had passed, in which
time most of his hair had worn off, but you can't have hair and brains
both. and "Mac" didn't have the hair. He made an excellent tackle
for his fearlessness and determination knew no limit. He would have
charged a stone wall if called upon to do so. YVe were minus "Mac"
after the La Crosse game for he had his knee broken but his optimistic
views of situations and encouragement were always with us. Next
yeai-'s squad will mourn his loss.
BEN NIacDONAI.D. - "Mads"
laughing blue eyes were first opened
in Menomonie, 24 years ago. His alti-
tude is 5 feet 10112 inches and his
weight is 176 pounds. "Mac" had no
previous experience, but in spite of
the fact, he took his part in the play
as tackle and how well he iilled it only
those who saw him play can ever tell.
"Mac" was a veritable fountain of
good nature: no matter how hard the
play or Wherever the ball went, he
was right there, below, in the midst
of or on top of the scrimmage, with
his nevei-'failing smile. Things couldn't
stay gloomy with "Mac" in them. I-Ie
was one of the team's most valuable
assets and will be missed sadly next
year, for he graduates this summer.
JAMES TURNEF4.-"Tuner" is one of Osage, lowa's sons. He is
22 years old, weighs 176 and they say his measure is 6 feet, which is
seldom taken. "Tuner" ordinarily was a very peaceable personage,
but in a football suit he was all "cat" and half wild. The way he
hit the line reminded spectators of a battering ram. t'Tuner's" ani-
bition in all games was to outplay the other fellow and he usually
did. He played the tackle position from "a" to "Z" and never seemed
happier than when he had his arms full of Hying feet. Funny how
fellows' tastes differ. "Timer" will be another missing link next
year for he will receive his parchment next June also.

Basket Ball Summary
VIDENUES of football in the way of black eyes and sore shins were still
being' nursed by athletes when Coach Jackson called for basket ball
candidates to report. lt was rather diilicult to entertain all enthusiasts
for a. while, as some thirty-five nien donned athletic attire and repaireduto the
Morgan, who played forward position, deinonstrated his Worth the
previous year. His attitude made it very difficult for opposing guards to
watch him, which combined with his accuracy in locating the basket, made hun
a great factor when it came to scoring points for the team.
Jackson, who did the ascension Work for the teani, besides having play-
ed thc previous year, also saw service with the Carroll College live in 1910.
Jackson, though not a very tall inan, surprised many an adversary by the
g lg s r o ii r it is is ii are gee
na.:-czx7' 754- 7
way in which he went up into the atmosphere at center. His knowledge of
the game and his floor work helped in all contests.
Stoneman, one of the guards, completed the trio of men who had seen
service on theteam the previous year. Stony's floor work and consistent
guarding, made Stout's goal safe at all times. Smashing up the opponents'
team work was his specialty.
McDonald, the smiling forward, went through the season without los-.
ing his temper "ONCE," f'Mac" had a faculty of always knowing where
the ball was. He had a faculty also of locating the cage from most any
angle and his unerring shots added many points to Stout is scores during the
Thurston, who starred in the role of a guard, played a very consistent
game throughout the season. Wlieii it came to sticking to a man, he was
as tenacious as the proverbial bulldog. Never saying much, he played a quiet,
steady game and did his honest share towards making the team the success
that it was.
Albrechtson, another guard, played his part in such a manner as to elicit
much creditable comment. "Al" was always there when in the game and
many a forward can assert that he possessed no mean qualifications as a basket
ball player. He well deserved the letter he received in appreciation of his
Van Duzee's services were not called for until the season was almost
half spent, when owing to injuries of some of the other members. he was made
a regular member of the squad. So well did he play his part though that he
was able to get into enough of the conflicts to win his letter. Witli Morgan,
Jackson, Stoneman and Albrechtson, he will be missed next year.
Shimmel, who played a forward position in a very praiseworthy man-
ner, was very fast upon the fioor and handled the ball with ease, Besides this
he was accurate trying for field goals. He with Thurston will remain next
year to form a nucleus for the 1914-15 team.
Besides the letter men, Sievers, Kelton and Captain Decker of the sec-
ond team, did such services which in the eyes of the Athletic Board, it was
deemed wise and fitting that they be awarded a Stout Monogram. Other
men who came out and helped to develop the first team, and with whose aid
a.n excellent team should be developed next year, were Keck, Comstock, Nich-
olas, Hansen, Mason and Turner.
Witli all the men in excellent condition and everyone keenly alive to the
fact that we would meet foes worthy of our steel in the Hamline Varsity team,
we waited for December 16th, the all important date. Hamline came with
the best they had and seemed fully determined to hand us a drubbing similar
to the one they had given us in football. Our boys, however, were of an
adverse mind and they proceeded to put their ideas into realistic actions from
the time the whistle blew to announce that the game was on until its close.
The team played together well and gave a real exhibition of basket ball.

Hamline kept up the pace the first half but gave up the fight in the second half
and Stout scored almost at will. Morgan caged seven field goals, while
L'Mac" and Shimmel got three and four respectively. Jackson was there
when it came to roughing it up with the Hamlinites and Stoneman, Albrecht-
son and Thurston starred in defensive work. lt was a memorable game and
an excellent way in which to start a season. The scorers proclaimed us
the winners by a score of 38 to 18.
La Crosse met us on our own floor on January 16th. Despite the
fact that they arrived here late in the afternoon after a Very tiresome trip,
the Normalites put up a very scrappy game. The first half ended with the
score 8 to 6 in favor of Stout and during the second half the teachers man-
aged to get 8 while the wood and metal workers not to be outdone, succeeded
in accumulating ten points. The final score stood, Stout 18, La Crosse 12.
On the 23rd of January the River Falls Normal quintet visited us. In
a fast and thrilling game they took their defeat with a score of 15 to 16.
The following night the team journeyed to St. Paul, where they en-
tertained the Hamline team in a return match. It was scarcely more than an
entertainment, for Hamline romped away with the Stoutites by a score of 50
to 11. The midnight sessions the previous week, which marked the close of
the semester, coupled with the fact that the boys played a very strenuous game
the night before is probably accountable for the one-sided score.
The following week, the team journeyed to River Falls and underesti-
mating the strength of the Falls team, the reserve squad members were left in
the game a little too long, for when the final count was taken, the scorebook
showed the teachers were the winners by a score of 14 to 16. It was a good
cxhibition and the boys took the defeat in good spirit.
The next evening, January 31 st, the team took on the Minnesota Aggies
atthe University. The game was fast and exciting and was an excellent eX-
hibition of basket tossing. Morgan and "Mac" were the point winners for
the locals, but everyone played a praiseworthy game. The Aggies apparently
had not forgotten the football defeat they sustained at the hands of our ath-
letes, for they never relented for a minute and came home the winners by a
score of 21 to 28.
On Feb. 7th, the Superior Normal came down to meet their Waterloo.
Our athletes took their measure by a score of 12 to 22. The season thus far has
been a success and every indication goes to point to the fact that it will be still
more so when the final games have been played. The next year's team has
our very best wishes for a successful season, which is also the most .san-
guine predictions of the radical ones.

T AN athletic meeting held Feb. 26th, enthusiasm and love ol! the Ameri-
can game was very evident and then and there it was decided that Stout
add baseba.ll to the rest of her athletic sports. Mr. Chandler was chosen
to manage the team and Earl Quigley was named as captain. lXIr.'Chamller ar-
ranged an excellent schedule of games, but he neglected to consult the weather
bureau linst, and the result was that we broke even with the weather man and
gave him half of the dates.
On March 15th, Captain Quigley affixed a small, slip of paper to the
bulletin board, announcing practice for hurlers in the Armory. The response
was so great that for a time it was feared the management would have to go
elsewhere to secure a roster everybody seemed to be a. pitcher.
Wo1'li continued in the Armory until April 10th, when the players bid
goodbye to the old cage and transferred their practice to the Fair Grounds.
On this particular morning a passing pedestrian might have easily imag-
ined that Menomonic had become the spring training quarters for about halt
the league teams of the country, for there were no less than 47 men, displaying
46 kinds of uniforms.
HQuig7' and Morgan were attired similarly in the gray garb of the
Slawdust City, while the rest of the would-be ball tossers wore anything from
a swimming suit to a dress suit. The spectacle was not unlike that of a
After several weeks of practice, it was conceded by those who were
best fitted to judge, that the most erratic men had a.bandoned the game, and
when the team lined up against the Wliite Sox, a. town team, for a practice
game on April 26th, the lnstitute was represented by the best material we had.
The Wliite Sox proved poor competitors and our boys romped home
with the long end of a 14 to 2 score. The weather was disagreeable, which
made the game .slow and uninteresting, but it developed that Turner was some
twirler, while Olson and Sebelius must have decided not to lose any time in
establishing a reputation from the manner in which they hit the ball.
On May 5th the Chinese NU" team visited us and Dr. Harvey granted
us Monday afternoon olt, to allow the girls to get out and see the Chinks.
Despite the fact that S-tout was strong for college amateurs, they hadnlt
a ghost of a show against the Chinese boys, who won by a score of 16 to 4.
Early in the game it was apparent that they knew and played inside baseball,
while they stole bases at will. On May 17th the boys watched the gathering
numlous clouds overspread the sky, and then let their contents to the earth,
making it impossible to play in the afternoon, when the dopemasters had prev-
iously decided that we could easily have defeated River Falls.
On May 30th, the team journeyed to River Falls and handed the Nor-
mals their delayed drubbing to the tune of 12 to 1. After seven innings
of play in the hot sun, the Normals wilted after chasing the sphere all over

the lot and decided to give Stout the game. Turner for Stout, allowed but
four hits, while our swatting demons garnered t.welve off the teachers.
This ended the season 's schedule in reality but the faculty decided they
would have their measure taken, and accordingly a game was arranged to be
played on the afternoon of June 3rd, after school. To make it more inter-
esting, the faculty took the student battery, Thompson and Turner, while Gohn
and Chandler were the points for the student team. After five innings of
intensely interesting play, the students finally won the game by a score of
16 to 12.
Daddy Curran studying Zoology in left field, caught a fly.
Chandler only walked twenty-three men.

Gymnastic Exhibition and Kirmess
N FEBRUARY 20, the Stout lnstitute Gymnasium classes, under the pro-
ficient direction of Mr. O. C. Mauthe and Miss Alma Krueger, present-
ed to the public, a Gymnastic Exhibition and Kiriness. Both the
Manual Training and the Domestic Science classes entered into the perform-
ance and the boys and girls put forth their best efforts to make it the success
that it proved to be.
Promptly at 8 :15 p. in., after a selection by the Stout Orchestra, Deimer
and Jackson did some excellent tumbling stunts, and wrestling which show-
ed wonderful training and agility on the part of each. Morgan and French
entered into a short but lively boxing exhibition. A group of the boys
put on a pyramid number in which they formed very spectacular, as well as
difficult, formations. They executed some fine parallel bar and horse exer-
cises and high diving. Other good numbers by these classes were effective
drills, such as the Letter and Figure March, in which the students carried
lighted candles, the Glow Woitiii, and Calisthenic numbers.
The Domestic Science classes vied successfully with the Manual Train-
ing classes, presenting a line of work that showed careful training and ac-
complishment. Flag and bar-bell drills were given, also one showing the
graceful aesthetic movements. Besides these, the girls gave several intricate
dances in costume, such as Morris, Spanish, Swedish, Folk, and a ribbon dance.
The girls entered gaily into the spirit of the various dances and made them
fascinating and enjoyable features of the entertainment.
To wind up the program a Manual Training class, led by Mr. Mauthe,
as German Professor, and Mr. Gohn, as the French Chef, gave a humorous
take-oi, called the Rival Cooking Classes. ln this the boys donned the
stripes of the Domestic Science girls and cleverly carried out a sham battle.
This sham battle was immediately followed by the finale of all the partici-
pants in costume, forming a beautiful tableau.
The effort put forth throughout, both by the boys' and girls' classes,
showed the good spirit of the lnstitute as a whole and reiiected much credit
not only on the individuals taking part in the affair, but also upon the in-
Mr. O. C. Mauthe, director of the Manual Training Gymnasium cla.sses,
and Miss Alma Krueger, director of the Domestic Science Gymnasium classes,
deserve much praise for the excellent training and management. 'To train
and drill seventy-five or eighty boys and girls for such work, in a limited
time, is decidedly no small matter and the results that they have obtained
speak highly of their ability.
The proceeds from the exhibition were turned over to the Athletic
Association to be used at its discretion.

BOUT the time that the hrst robin put in his appearance and long before
spring was really with us, track entlmsiasts felt the call. of the cinder
path and nightly donned their scanty attire to get out and lope about
the countryside. The first call brought out about thirty men, but as the work
became harder and more wearing, the less vigorous ones began to drop off and
after two weeks of drill the squad had dwindled down to twenty men.
An election was held to determine who should captain the team and
Erle Stoneman was named for the position.
At the elimination run held at the fair grounds to determine wha.t men
should represent the ,Institute in the cross-country run which had been
scheduled with the Eau Ulaire Y. M. C. A. for April 26, the following men
qualified in the order given: Brunkow, Leuctenberger. McCoy, Stoneman,
Thompson. Naden, Gangwisch, Tubbs, lllorenus, Wliite, Nicholas, Sheldrew,
Gottschalk, Cook, Troeger, Pitman and Billing, The iirst fourteen men to
qualify were assigned to two-mile courses, and they practiced faithfully on
similar ground. The three last men to qualify. kept in training in the hope
that someone might have to give way and they might thus get a position on
the team as an alternate. '
The day of tl1e race dawned at last and our team left for Eau Claire
confident of giving them a. battle royal, for everybody was in good condition.
The runners left the building in Eau Claire at 3:02 p. in. and Eau
Claires final runner finished at Menomonie Memorial at 5 :25 p. m. with Brun-
lzow. Stout's final man, only a block in his rear. We were defeated, but it
later developed that our defeat was the result of Eau Claire stationing her
men wrong and running fifteen men on the same course that we ran fourteen.
lt ha.s passed into athletic history, however, and is there recorded as a defeat
which we sustained. VVe can but bow before the inevitable and accept it
humbly, hoping that next year's team under the leadership of O. Brunkow as
coach and H, Nicholas as captain, succeed in retrieving our lost honors.
After considerable discussion as to which class possessed the greatest
athletic ability it was finally decided to hold an inter-class track and field
meet in which the two classes might compete for honors.
Friday afternoon. May 30th, was the date set for the meet and when
the last race had been run and when the points had been totaled, it was
found that the Juniors had won the meet with a total of 59 points to the Sen-
iors 5O points. The Seniors consoled themselves, however, with the fact that
Erunkow, one of their number, captured individual honors with a total of 22
points. Valaske, a Junior, was second with 19 points, while Mayo and Van
Duzee, both Juniors, were tied for third place with 17 points each. Let's
hear of some broken records next year.

Stout has for its aim The Promotion of Skill, lndustry and Honor, and
to the members of the Stout Musical Association we owe the salvation of this
cause from a Shakespearian point of view.
Early in the year the orchestra was organized under the able and pro-
ncient leadership of Mr. A. R. Souba, under whose direction it has met with
good success. A second meeting wa.s called, and as a result the Stout Musi-
cal Association was organized.,
Through the kindness of Dr. Harvey, the Memorial Auditorium was at
the disposal of the orchestra for rehearsals twice a week.
The orchestra furnished the music for the Social Club dances at the
gym, to the extreme satisfaction of a.ll. The dance given by the orchestra
on Jan. 9th at Co. H Armory was a iinancial success as well as giving the or-
chestra a place of consideration in the activities ot the school.

HE Stout Hikers' club was organized last year for the purpose of taking
hikes and creating a more enthusiastic .school spirit. This year the
organization started earlier with a determination to make eveninore of
a success of the undertaking than they did last year. A number of hikes
have been taken to neighboring towns and two to St. Paul. Mondovi has
been the object of several excursions. WVhile at Mondovi the Club was
pleasantly entertained by the Ladies' I-lilzers' Club of that place.
The club at present has an active membership of forty. They have
covered, altogether, about 1,600 miles and before spring will have covered over
2,000 miles. All members of the club covering a distance of 150 miles are
awarded by the Stout Athletic Association, an official Stout monogram.

Y FAR the handsomest prom ever given at The Stout lnstitute took place
Friday evening, October 24, in the Stout Armory, when the Senior Class
of 1914 gave the Annual Senior Prom. Three luindred guests, students
and visiting friends, danced the program of dances.
The building was transformed into a. ball room. The high. ceiling was
completely concealed by innumerable black and orange ribbons, extending
from the center of the room to all sides. Through this the lights gave at soft
glow. Above the entrance the decorations were centered around an immense
Stout banner. At the end of the room the space was divided off into three
rooms. ln the center the orchestra was partially screened from view by a
curtain of orange and black ribbons. On either side of this were booths in
which frappe was served during the evening. The seats around the room
were piled with pillows.
ln the receiving line to welcome the guests were Mr. Olson, Mrs. Olson,
Margaret Gallagher, Alma Hawley and Otto Haack.
The party was chaperoned by members of the faculty. The programs
were artistically designed, the outside cover was embossed with the Stout
seal in colors. On the inside cover were engraved the names of the officers
and chairmen of the various committees,
charge of the prom.

Stout Social Club
HE opening of the school year saw the reorganization of the Stout Social
Club. The club was organized through the efforts of Mr. R. H. Chand-
ler. The student members to act as his assistants were appointed by
him, and were follows: Seniors, O. C. Haack and R. R. Deimer. Juniors,
H. L. Bloemen and C. M. French.
Primarily the purpose of this organization was to bring entertainment
and recreation to the student body by the giving of informal parties consist-
ing of dancing and cards.
The parties Were usually held in the Stout Gymnasium, on Friday even-
ing, and efforts were made to prevent the conflict with other activities about
the school, always giving preference to other activities when it was possible
to do so.
On one occasion the party was given in the Co. H Armory. At this
time the Social Club was assisted by the Manley Club, who provided for the
refreshments and decorations for the occasion.
Secondarily the purpose of the club was to raise funds for the Annual
Board so that they might have this money to help put out this Annual.
The Annual Board wishes to take this means of thanking the Social
Club for their hearty support.
ECOGNIZING the fact that a large number of the students do not dance
and so do not attend the dances that are regularly given by the Gym
Social Club, and also recognizing the fact that in order to do the most
effective Work one must have some form of recreation, early in the fall of
1913 this social club was organized.
Besides the regular officers of this society there are three committees,
namely: Entertainment, Refreshment and Finance.
The name chosen for this club is the "Fu-lo-ches," which comes from
three words, fun, love and cheer. Fun from the participation in good,
wholesome sport, love and good cheer in helping others enjoy themselves.
While the chief purpose of the society is for recreation and promo-
tion of friendship, its business meetings give practice in parliamentary law
and as three groups of officers serve during the year it gives a chance for them
to arrange and conduct business meetings. The experience gained from this
kind of Work will, no doubt, prove of great advantage to all concerned, What-
ever their chosen vocation may happen to be.

HE present year witnessed a departure from the method of school gov-
ernment that has been the custom since the founding of The Stout ln-
stitute. A feeling on the part of President Haryey and of the faculty
that the time was propituous for the placing of the government of the school
activities into the hands of the student body led to the adoption by the mem-
bers of the Manual Training Department of a. set of resolutions creating the
Student Council. The Council, which at present consists of four Senior
members and three Junior members, has the governing power of this depart-
ment resting in its hands.

ACK as far as the publication of the iirst Stout Annual in 1909, no trace
can be found of the existence of a tennis club, or any word concerning
the game itself. This condition seems strange in a way, and yet it is
undoubtedly due to the fact that, even in a school of this size, there are com-
paratively few students who are well up in the game or have any interest
whatever in it. The game of tennis, of course, does not rank with football,
baseball, basket ball and track as a school sport in which all the student body
is interested, and yet not as many can participate in them as in tennis. Also,
tennis is acknowledged to be one of the best-if not the foremost-forms of
all-around exercise to be had today. Any person taking part in it is obliged
to use his arms, hands, legs, brain, eyes, and in fact, every part of the body.
The training of the eye alone, to judge position and velocity of the flying tennis
ball, together with the ability to return it to a point where the opponent will
have difficulty in doing likewise, is in itself an education worth anyonels time
However, for the last two years tennis has slowly been coming to the
front, and last year a club was organized with a membership of about twenty.
The court, on the corner of Third Street and Wilsoii Avenue, belonging to the
school, was not, and is not today, kept in condition by the school, but by the
enthusiastic members of the club, and iinancially by the dues of fifty cents per
season, levied on all members. The work at times has been very trying, for, as
stated previously, a few did and still do all the work, and the rest reap the
benefits. The court has been put in shape as soon as possible each season,
and the attendance last fall was very gratifying.
The prospects for this spring season of 1914 are not hopeful as regards
an outdoor court, on account of the preparations for the new Domestic Science
Building, which is to occupy the entire half block on Wilsoii Avenue. How-
ever, some opportunity for playing will be provided outdoors, if desired, and
until that has been secured the club members and all students of the Institute
are to be granted the free use of the indoor court installed in the Armory.
Some splendid games have already been played there and those who partici-
pated are enthusiastic over the success of the idea as a means for early tennis.
It is the sincere hope of the manager of the club that a Round Robin tourna-
ment may be played this year, not only to provide diversion for the players,
but to interest the students at large and make a place for tennis in The Stout
The officers of the club for the sea.son of 1913-14 are the following:
Manager, W. D. Mayo, '14, secretary-treasurer, Ruth Layman, l14. Active
members of the club, that is, those manifesting the most interest in its success
and also enjoying the privileges to the fullest extent, are: Ruth Layman,
Grace Balcom, Miss Wliiting, Stanley Hahn, A. H. Krebs, E. V. Albrechtson,
1-N. D. Mayo, O. E. Brunkow and E. Keck.

THE WASH CLOTH-A Rhapsody.
O thou wash-cloth, cruel-hearted!
O thou deadly, horrid bore!
Xvhat reward shalt thou make to me
For the joys I have foreswore?
For the way my heart hath faltered,
For the way my brain hath whirled,
NVhen the fearful truth came o'er me
That I had knit where I should have purled.
painful task was ended,
square of squares was done,
me down in anguish
the rising of the sun.
hours I had been busy,
hours my Hngers curled,
Then l lay
Just to keep those needles knitting,
And purling-Where it should be purleu.
Aches were in my disposition,
Sleep came slowly to my call.
XVhen at last sweet dreams were due me,
'Twas a night-mare, that was all.
And I thought weird shapes pursued me,
Till I fled through boundless space.
Earth, with its too narrow confines
Xvas left behind in this mad race.
Up, I Went, far up-still flying,
Up and through the beautiful blue,
And the voices about me were softly sighing
"She'll come back-she'll never go through."
But on I went to the narrow portal
That guards the heaven of which we are
And I called, "St, Peter, awake ye porter,
Open to me your gates of gold."
Then came St. Peter to the portal
And he closed it behind him as he came
And he said-as he looked, his wrath un-
"Think ye these gates could open for you?
'Gates of gold' ye have rashly called them,
Go ye back to the world-a-day world,
Go ye back, for look ye, maiden,

Causes Consternation and Panic Among the
Natives and Fire Department.
Those who volunteered their efforts are to
be commended in the highest respect for
their determination to locate the fire, which
was found with extreme difficulty and with
the aid of six lanterns, just as the clock
struck the hour of seven-thirty. Many
Stout students were on hand and aided ma-
terially in holding the firemen back for
some time. Xvhen the fire was discovered
it was learned that a ladder was necessary.
This WELS borrowed from a nearby neighbor
and the soaking commenced.
The Stout instructors were glad of the op-
portunity to see which students were inter-
ested in the welfare and destruction of the
city, for at this occasion they were able to
see more of some than of others,
lvhen the roll was taken at the fire, many
new styles of dress were discovered. It
was thought at first that Messrs. Bailey and
Stoneman were running backward but upon
close investigation it proved that dressing in
a hurry the fronts of their clothes had
been mistaken for the backs. MacDonald
wore a smile and Albrechtson wore no smile
at all. "Billy" Xtiillis was there with "Billy"
Barry: both report a very 'lovelyi -time.
Sloniker, Nelson and "Rock" Gottschalk an-
swered present at roll call but if clothes
count for anything. they were not all, all
there. Taft stayed till a few minutes T ate.
The Misses Fitzgerald and Pierce appeared
in full dress but looked as if they wore a
guilty conscience for good measure. Han-
son, Naden, I-Ianke, O'Brien and Lamb all
came without hose, for which they were se-
verely reprimanded by the chief. The
Messrs. Neudecker, Knutson, Anderson,
Krebs and H. E. Olson joined the bucket
brigade immediately upon their arrival and
conducted themselves as if they had han-
dled pails before.
A call was sounded for more hose and
"Tom" Sivers, "Ben" Leuchtenburger,
"Bob" Wlhite and "Ed" Troeger dedicated
theirs to the cause, but alas, they were in-
deed too Holy to use. And again the en-
treating call came.
Some strategic methods were then resort-
ed to. Bloemen and Liddy drew in a deep
breath of confidence and Waving their arms
frantically in the air, they blew simultan-
eously with disastrous effects to the fire.
XVhen Messrs. Keck and Campbell reached
the scene of conflagration they were over-
come with excitement and began to consume
their stogies with such alacrity that they
were unable to find the Way out of their
own smoke: a pulmotor was resorted to for
resuscitation and the efforts of Doc. Haack
were crowned with success and his practice
has had a marked development since their
'When the fire was extinguished it was ne-
cessary for the fire department to turn the
water on the crowd, that they might be able
to get through the ring of enthusiastic ad-
mirers from the Institute. It is reported
that when Mr, Curran and Mr. Olson reach-
ed home they were completely soaked.

- THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN.
In treating the subject of XN'omen's Rights,
it is best to enumerate and treat RIGHTS
in separate paragraphs. .
When entering The Stout Institute along
with the many rights which women have
had before entering are added some of the
following: The right to wear the gowns
commonly known as uniforms, which are
celebrated for their simplicity and neatness
in design. This right is rigidly enforced, but
as the costumes aregof so unique a pattern
the women feel it no hardship.
The usual Sunday afternoon program for
a 4StoutJ lady is to take a long walk.
Upon these occasions it is not necessary to
wear the regulation uniform, nor it is ne-
cessary to take short mincing steps, but
on the contrary they may take long steps
excepting when skirts interfere fsee rules
The Wearers of the uniforms have the
privilege fgranted by the M. T. departmentj
-to pass in review on the first floor each
morning. The inspecting ofiicers, however,
reserve the right of casting any remarks
which they might see fit.
The social activities at the Institute are
limited to Fu-lo-che Club, movies and gym

As all women have the right to change-
their minds the lady makes up her mind that
the Stout fellows are not so bad after all.
But changes are followed by changes.
.X number of times during the school year
the women have the privilege of preparing
suppcrs and banquets for the benefit of the
Annual. There usually is a great demand
for these suppers and banquets on the part
of the women because said suppers and
bz-i,nr,uets lend so much valuable experience
and infoimation. The task most desired by
the great majority of the women is the
cleaning of the bank kitchen.
The most important right of any woman
is to change her name providing she finds a
man willing to give her his. There you are:
men, the selnsh things, want the lefts as

At 4:35 of a still day the terrible cry of

to find that the palatizil building' occupied
the trade school was burning. Smoke was

The Fire Department seated itself on the

minutes decided that the fire was a serious
affair, XN'hen this decision had been reach-
ed, they rose as a body and acted with
speed. Axes were served out to all three
members, and the process 01' smashing win-
dows was enjoyed by all. After the vali-
ant firemen had made an entrance into the
building by cutting away the greater portion
of the north side, a line of hose was drag-
ged in and the serious business of putting
out the fire began.

Not long ago the Senior boys did make a
vow, which meant
That they'd not shave their upper lips,
from then till after Lent.
No Juniors were allowed to join this band

Those Senior boys with moustaches sought
that bubble, reputation,
And full many a one, by his lady love, was
given a week's vacation.
This touched the heart of every Swain, and
others it touched harder,
And most of the boys made a'hurried trip

What's the Matter?
Five volumes of The Stout Annual rest on the Alumni Editor 's desk as
he writes these lines for the sixth publication. A study of the Alumni De-
partment of these Annuals reveals the fact that the Alumni Department has
not grown as successfully as the first Alumni Editors intended it to grow.
Any individual glancing over these pages can detect a decrease of interest on
the part of the Stout Alumni in the Annual and hence, apparently, in the In-
stitute. As our numbers increase, shall we divide our original interest with
the current year's graduates? ls it right to lighten our care by putting a
part of our duty toward The Stout Institute on the shoulders of the recent
Alumni A? The question 'WVlia.t's the Matter 'V' is easily answered.
We, the Alumni of The Stout Institute have not done all in our power
to keep in touch with The Annual and make our department bigger and bet-
ter each year. The causes for this failure can be given by each individual.
Our Alumni Association died in its infancy, but shall we also allow the Alumni
Department to be stricken down without an effort to raise it higher and in-
crease its size. l answer 'tNo,7' somewhat feebly, but the sound is caught
and the answer repeated with emphasis by a dozen Alumni who are teaching
with me at Stout. The remedy lies in the hands of the Alumni. I have
little ability to prescribe any ttsure cure," but I ask permission to leave a few
suggestions with you.
The material in the Alumni Department is furnished by yourselves.

have never heard of a Stout Alumni Editor cutting or leaving out an article
contributed to his department. He more often wishes to pad it as much as

have been in close touch with three endeavors on the part of business man-
agers to sell Annuals to the Alumni. The few,who order Annuals are so
small a percentage that the money spent in printing and mailing letters is
simply returned with little real profit toward paying the large cost of issuing
The Annual. The returns from the Alumni as a whole are not satisfactory.

Seine think one thing and some another. Others have impossible suggestions.
Keep in mind, dear Alumnus, that the Senior Class and Annual Board are
without definite financial backing from you, so we must not expect too much
from them. Some of the Alumni like the printing of the lists of graduates
of the various classes. This has grown to be Very large. It has never yet
been printed accurately because you failed to keep the Registrar fully in-

Many cities have in their employ a number of Stout graduates who have carried to
those places the ideas of industrial work and manual training obtained while in training and
have mixed with these, other ideas in good proportion. It is a satisfaction to know that in such
places the manual training is showing a marked success. I have pleasure in presenting an
article from the La Crosse "bunch," telling about their work.-Alumni Editor.

Work Done in the La Crosse Schools
The Manual Training courses are of two and four years, the boys can
take two years or four years and get four or eight credits.
Two years' course :
First Semester-Joining and mechanical drawing.
Second Semester-Cabinet making and mechanical drawing.
Third Seniestei'-Woocl turning and mechanical drawing.
Fourth Semester-Pattern making and mechanical drawing.
Four years' course:
Fifth Semester-Foundry and mechanical drawing.
Sixth Semester-Forging and mechanical drawing.
Seventh Semester-Machine shop and mechanical drawing.
Eighth Semester-Machine shop and mechanical drawing.
The Manual Training work correlates with the other high school work.
One unit credit is given for a course consisting of two forty-five minute per-
iods per day and five days per week.
Besides the regular four-year course we offer two other courses, one,
special training for engineering schools, and second, a course which will give
a good insight to some vocation. Boys electing the last course will not be
admitted to colleges. Those who elect either of the other two courses may
be admitted to the colleges of the Northern Central Association without ex-
aminations. The vocational course consists of shop mathematics, commercial
English, and elementary economics, in addition to his shop work.
The high school work is purely elective and we get about 75 per cent of
the boys as they come in. Sixty boys entered last September. This shows
the interest among the pupils and I think it is growing constantly.
An order sheet and a time card system has just been installed so that
the boy will learn how to make out a time sheet correctly when he gets out.
From a school standpoint it is a decided success. The boys are doing twice
the work and it gives the instructor a true record of each and every boy in
his own handwriting. In the foundry the boys are given so many units for
certain patterns or jobs and this acts similar to the piece work system in the
The department is doing a good deal of manufacturing for the school,
such as fire escapes, drawing tables, bronze tablets, 'teachens' desks, and a
roll-top desk for the superintendent of schools, as well as other numerous
small jobs. ,
The boy in cabinet making draws his object, makes a tracing and blue
print and includes a full bill of material. His bill of material is entered on
the order sheet and he is given a number. He then gets out his stock, lays
it out and machines it himself and later goes to the bench room and finishes
his project, all the while keeping track of his time by the use of his time sheet.
Wlien the boy 's project is nnished, we know exactly the cost of material and

the amount of time it took him to complete the work, and by a fair estimate of
the boy 's time we can get to the value of the article made.
We are on a commercial basis with the school board, for they let jobs
to us such as fire escapes. We are given credit for the work of the boys by al-
lowing them so much per hour and this is credited to us and put into a re-
serve fund that ive can use for new equipment, breakages, etc. ln this Way
we are given full credit for what we do outside of class work. This semester
We will ha.ve somewhere near a hundred dollars to our credit.
Next year 's prospects look still brighter as the city will have a good deal
to turn over to us. They have been trying us out this year and now that
they see We can produce the goods they are willing to let us go ahead.
We are on the most friendly terms with the manufacturing concerns
here and they are boosting the .school and l feel that it is due to the fact that
ive invite them in to see the work done, ask for suggestions and in that Way
make them feel that the school is trying to give the boy just what they think
he should have.
A number of boys are going to work this summer. during vacation, in
the commercial shops. Up to date tivo boys are going into a drafting shop
and eight into two of the largest local foundries. The boys are urged to get
practical Work during vacation, which is a great value to the boy. especially
if he is going to follow up shop life. By next June a greater number of boys
will be employed for the summer. -E. A. Peart, 710, Supervisor.

The course given in high school in cabinet making is given with the in-
tention of making the work as practical as possible.
The students are allowed to choose their own projects, such as tables
Clibraryj and Morris chairs, etc., provided the tool processes involved in the
construction meet the approval of the instructor in charge. Before the
actual Work is undertaken the students are required to make a. working draw-
ing and get out a bill of material with estimated cost attached.
Another important feature of this course is the fact that the students
are required to get out their own material from the rough stock, thus famil-
iarizing themselves with the use and the care of the various power machines
used in the work.
The keeping of a time card is one of the requirements of the course,
which has recently been added, and this feature is very influential in the
placing of the work upon a commercial basis.
-C. D. Brower, '13.
Drafting as given in the high school at the present time consists of ele-
mentary mechanical drawing, projection drafting, advanced orthographic pro-
jection, sheet metal drawing and machine sketching and drafting.
The aim of these courses is to make them a.s practical as possible with-
out losing sight of the fundamental theories. This is done by making a
practical application of the theory treated. For example, all problems which
are to be made in the shops, whether in cabinet making, wood turning, forging
or the metal Working department, must first be drawn by the .student in the
drafting department. He-then carries his drawing to the shops and makes
the finished project from his- own drawing.
The subject of drafting is given five days a week for periods of one
and one-half hours' duration. We are in hopes this coming September to add
a course in architectural drawing and elementary contracting, supplemented
by visits to buildings in process of actual construction.
Elementary Drafting. i
Instruction is given in this course, to acquaint the student: with the use
of instruments, the knowledge of convictions, with elementary geometrical
construction, and the ability to make and read working drawings.
Projection Drafting. '
This course is given as a continuation of the work offered in elementary
drafting, greatest stress being given to the theoretical side of the Work.
Problems given cover exercises and the use of planes of projection, illustrating
both Hrst and third angle drawings. Drawings are made of solids in dif-

ferent positions, to give the student the power to visualize, the power most im-
portant in all drawings. The work includes the principles of projection, ap-
plied to making drawings of objects, plane sections and intersection of sur-
Advanced Orthographic Projection.
This work embraces the more a.dvanced treatment of orthographic pro-
jection relative to its practical application, and correlation with shop prob-,
lems. The points emphasized are technique, use of irregular curves, good form
in drawing, proper dimensioning and location of views on the sheet. This
course is correlated in the beginning with the wood turning and cabinet mak-
ing course and later with the pattern making course.
Sheet Metal Drafting.
This subject is treated by the instructor from the theoretical stand-
point, the students being required to make a practical application of the theory
as treated by him. The problems consist of familiar objects as seen around
the school, such as square receptacles, funnel, dust-collecting pipes, Qas seen
over the top of the planerl, three and five-piece elbows, sheet metal wheel-
barrows, spheres, etc. This work is supplemented by frequent visits to local
tin shops, where the practical work is observed and helpful hints often re-
Machine drawing is offered to acquaint the student with the actual
problems of a drafting shop as far as this can be done in high schools. Prob-
lems consist of the helix and its application, different kinds of threads and
their conventions, bolts and nuts and their standard proportions. Drawings
are made of special pieces of machinery and with the supposition that the
drawings are to be put into the hands of the pattern maker or the machin-
ist. Visits are made to machine shops. where sketches of detailed parts are
tirst made and afterwards working drawings made from these sketches.
Later the student is required to make a complete assembled drawing con-
sisting of these different details. They must. be complete in every detail, con-
taining such knowledge as is necessary to construct the machine part. Dem-
onstrations are given to acquaint thepstudent with the strength of different
materials, such as iron, steel, etc., safe speeds for belts, emery wheels, with
problems in power transmission. -H. R. Fuller, '13.
Manual Training in the Grades, La Crosse Public
The work in the grades is made an important part of this department of
the work in our school system. There are over eight hundred pupils enroll-
ed in this department, and this overwhelming number makes it almost im-
possible to give as much time to the work as would be desired. The work is

taken up in the iifth to eighth grades inclusive, and because of the large num-
bens each class comes but one period a week. The fifth and sixth grades
have a period of one hour each, while the seventh and eighth grades have
one and one-fourth hours each.
The city is divided into three districts, ea.ch district having its center.
The pupils going to school in these districts attend their center for instruction.
These centers are as well equipped for the work as would be desired, and are
centrally located in each district. At present there are two instructors who
have charge of most of the work. One of the high school instructors has
charge of some of the work, otherwise the classes would be overcrowded.
The aim of the work in this department is to give the pupil an acquaint-
ance with the use of tools and tool processes, and more stress is laid upon this
phase of the work than the finished model. Sequence of steps in the use of
tools plays an important part in this work, and the aim is to make as practi-.
cal at model as possible at the least cost of materials.
Work in wood is the only kind of work given in this department, al-
though a working drawing and a bill of material with the cost of each model
is required before the work is started. This feature not only gives the
pupil a better insight into the work, but prepares him in a 'measure for the
work in the high school course as well as in the practical work out of school.
Since the manual training work has been installed in this school system
a larger per cent of boys are being tided over the disquiet period in the upper
grades. The work is given to the parochial school boys as well as the others,
thus giving all an equal chance to receive training along a line that appeals
to most boys, and which is beneficial to all by keeping up their interest and
making their school work more practical. -A. L. Fratt, 712.

. A Glimpse Into the Porto Rican Schools
Friends of Miss Short gave us the information that she was having many interesting
experiences in Porto Rico and wrote entertainingly of her work. XVe wrote asking her for a,
letter to The Annual and Alumni and are pleased to print below her contribution.-Alumni
To The Annual Board:
Indeed it is a pleasure to comply with your request for a description of
this far-away dot on the Atlantic, and of the work here. lt has all been so
very interesting to me that l only wish my idea of it could bring a few mo-
ments oftropieal atmosphere to you in the states. '
The school system of Porto Rico is an excellent one, both in the scope of
its work and fin its management. lt is under the control of the United States
Department of War, with a Mr. Bainter of Kansas as its commissioner. The
work is then sub-divided into departments, such as the department which
has charge of the school programs, etc. The men at the head of the academic
work on the Island have their ofiices in San Juan, where the entire govern-

steer assume mental force is seated, and keep in touch with the work through personal
tours and through the supervising principals.
These latter are the official heads of the school districts into which
Porto Rico is divided, and which correspond with the political divisions. The
supervising principal acts much as a city superintendent of schools, except
that his district probably contains one or two towns, and a great stretch of
country dotted with rural schools, each of which must be visited once a month.
This in itself would he no hardship, were it not for the mountains-but in
traveling to advance half a mile, one can easily cover from five to six miles
up and down hill on the na.rrow trails and passes. One supervising princi-
pal says he can drop a stone from one of his schools down on top of another,
but it takes him three hours to get there.
This mountain village of Ciales, where l work, has a population of about
3,000 The school numbers G00 children, a fairly good percentage for these
people, most of whom have a great aversion to .schools and Americans. Our
building, as you see from the picture, is a concrete structure, built for cool-
ness, on the brow of a hill. The wooden structure, notable for lack of or-
nateness, at the rear, is where the Manual Training and Domestic Science
classes hold forth, it having been built new this fall for that purpose.
The school system was broadened this year to include those subjects
and agriculture in the continuation schools, also music, drawing and Writing
in all grades, Expensive equipment was installed, high-priced teachers and
supervisors of the special work elected, and the experiment has proven a great
drain on Porto Rico. There are 1,000,000 people on the Island, and the
1-axes amount to tlS8,000,000.00, so for this hard year especially, it was more
than a trifle too much.
The course of study offered in Domestic Science is prepared by the
supervisor, a Miss Ferguson, of Kansas, also-with the help of Porto Ricans
or those versed in the customs. The recipes used are entirely Porto Rican,
and there is a vast difference in not only the things cooked, but the ingredi-
ents and method of handling, as well. It was quite an experiment in every
way-importing Americans with no knowledge of the customs of the people
or of their food, but Miss Ferguson placed a number of egg lessons first-
Yery simple ones. These enabled us to get acquainted with the surroundings,
and also was an easy beginning for the children, who knew nothing, or next
to nothing of the gentle art of cookery.
I wonder if you would care to know some of the recipes I have used?
'We have made c'tortilla.s'l of almost every available substance-a tortilla be-
ing something like an omelet. Calabaza, yantia, potato, orange and various
other native vegetables and fruits have been utilized in this way. Bananas
have been cooked in different ways, and really, a cake made of mashed ripe
banana pulp, flour, cinnamon and sugar-fried in lard, is very good. We
have cooked beans and rice, of course, those being the staples in the food line.

Bread and cake is never made at home, but in the town bakeries, which are
supervised well by the Sanitation Department.
At Christmas time I was fortunate in being able to take a trip around
the entire Island in a motoring party. We visited all the towns of any size,
and many of the inland and coast villages. It is almost unbelievable, but
this tiny island, containing less than 3,000 .square miles, offers as many various
kinds of scenery, productive areas and climatic conditions as we would travel
far to see in the States. The northern part is semi-tropical, the center cold
and dry, given over largely to the production of the finer tobacco or "wrap-
pers," which is all housed. The Western part is less tropical, but very warm,
and the eastern coast is dry a.nd resembles Colorado in topography. I
We had a wonderful trip, climbing the mountains near the center of
the Island on the old Spanish military road, across which the American sol-
diers made their march. Here the road lies in lap.s, zig-zagging back and
forth so that when one reaches the height and looks backward, the road lies
in terraces, lacing ribbon-like back down into the Caribbean sea almost. We
had the extreme pleasure, by the way, of watching a perfect sunset on the
Caribbean, from a mountain peak among a dense tropical fore.st. At most of
these points it is possible to see the Atlantic in one direction and the Carib-
bean with its coast fringed with cocoanut palms, in the other.
The beauty of these forests is that they have all the advantages of a
tropical jungle with none of the disadvantages. Porto Rico has no snakes to
speak of, no chattering monkeys or the usual wild animals, although the cock-
roaches are of a formidable size. We have had some wonderful horseback
trips through the woods and mountains, where we had to lie down on the
horses, backs to pass the heavy foliage, for vegetation is rank.
Altogether the Island is an interesting little "Garden Spot," as it has
been well named, and I enjoy it immensely, from my attempts to fry sticky
bananas in a quantity of lard corresponding to the demands of Domestic
Science, to the week-ends at grape-fruit 'ttincasf' or plantations. I have
made a beginning at the beautiful Spanish language, and hope to do more
with it. It is universally spoken here, and presents one of the greatest dif-
iiculties, for outside of the school-room the children speak not one word of
English. l have found it much easier to learn Spanish than to teach them
English, and I despair at ever teaching my girls the word' Htowel" and what
it stands for,
My equipment for twelve is complete. l have three three-burner Blue-
Flame oil stoves and running water. The Manual Training Teacher made
both the table and cupboard, and while not exactly like the ones in the "Main
Kitchen," still they are well made and put together. I have one Singer sew-
ing machine which requires an extortionate amount of oil, and that completes
our working utensils. The Manual Training teacher is one of twenty-two
Lane Technology boys, who are scattered over the Island. He has a well-
equipped shop, and is doing much with his boys, who are all interested.

They are at present st.arting a small house, to be used as the Agricultural office.
It is my honest belief that these three subjects-Manual Training, Agriculture
and Domestic' Science, are sounding the keynote of true service in Porto Rico.
So here is a hearty wish for the success of this year's Annual, which I
am sure is inevitable from the list of Animal Board Members. And to the
success of each and every one of the class of l9l4, another wish. Most sin-

From Tulane University j
Tulane University of Louisiana, as it now exists, is the result of a con-
tract entered into in 1844 by the State of Louisiana and the Board of Admin-
Tulane's campus comprises over one hundred acres, and in all, the
departments of the university occupy twenty-five buildings. The buildings
are all of modern design and constructed in recent years, Located in the
rear of the campus are the different athletic fields, covering ten acres, with
a.lso the accommodations of tennis courts, basketball courts, gymnasium and
Tulane has the leading medical school in the South, as the hospital
facilities are the greatest and on account of the various tropical and other
diseases which the location and size of New Orleans affords.
The facilities offered for the first two years are provided in the lab-
oratories and equipment in the Richardson Memorial building on the Tulane
campus. The students of the third and fourth years of the Medical Depart-
ment are taught in the Hutchinson Memorial building on Canal street near the
Charity hospital, its facilities being available to the upper classmen. The
School of Medicine is the largest department of the university and is espe-
cially noted for its world-renowned doctors. ' '
The courses taught by myself are as follows: Engineering Drawing,
Carpentry, Wood Turning, Pattern Making and Foundry Wo1'lr. In draw-
ing the first semester is devoted to free-hand drawing such a.s the sketching
of machine tools, bringing in the principles of orthographic and isometric
projections and lettering. The sketching of parts of a machine, the mak-
ing of detailed or assembled drawings, tracings and blue prints comprises the
second se1nester's work.
Thecarpentry course deals with the character 'of wood-working tools,
their care and adjustment, the form, adaptation of the relative strength of
joints. The exercises involve sawing, planing, mortising, devetailing and
work with the common carpenter tools.
It is believed that wood-turning is a distinct and separate trade in itself'
and that it is practically obsolete in the commercial world, because of the
development of the modern gauge lathe. There is very little demand for the

Teaching Manual Training to Women
The Manual Training in the Stevens Point Normal is offered as an elec-
tive to all students, to the women as well as the men. The alumni editor sug-
gested that the subject of these notes be, 'tHow lt Seems to Teach Manual
Training To Girls," and the suggestion has been taken.
Wlien the writer appeared on the "job" three years ago and learned
that about fifty per cent of the shop students were young women he needed en-
couragement. Visions of an interminable line of nail boxes, sleeve boards,
plant stands, and such were in evidence. The craving for encouragement,
had he but been aware of it, was entirely unnecessary. Rather, on the other
hand, even the question of women 's suffrage appears in a rather favorable
light as a result of the subsequent experiences. Of course, there are ex-
ceptions to the statements. The conclusions herein presented may show a
lack of extent in the investigation. They extend over a period of two and
one-half years and may be judged accordingly.
The shop course, twenty weeks, an hour and one-half per day, covers
about eight weeks of elementary bench work and twelve of furniture con-
struction. The course is the same for both the men and the Women. Both
cover it with the same average speed, both get results of the same average
quality, and in checking up the work in a group it is impossible to tell which
has been made by the men and which by the Women. The methods of in-
struction are .somewhat different.
The men have an instinctive tool sense. In the great majority of
cases they know which way to turn the brace to make the bit bore a hole.
They usually take hold of a hammer handle in about the right place. In short,
there is quite a goodly bit of mechanical instinct in the manls makeup as a
start. The woman seems usually to have none such. The woman usually has
to be taught which way to turn the brace. The writer has had three Wo-
men, of those who have taken the work, who used the hammer correctly the
first time. One did not do so again until the correct way was indicated. The
Woman must be taught every point in connection with every tool. There
seems usually to be no instinctive knowledge. The degree to which boys
and men possess this tool-sense is not appreciated until one teaches students

lacking it. The work of the girls is usually more accurate. On the average
they will take more pains than the boy, but will bc a little slower at first.
Stevens Point, VVis. -Clyde A. Bowman, '09,
Some Difficulties in the Way
Possibly the most difficult proposition that confronts the average teach-
er of Manual Training in the September following his graduation is meeting
the actual conditions under which he has to work.
As a rule, none of us upon leaving Stout, goes out to teach in a school
where the equipment is anything like that to which we, as students, had been
accustomed. Most of us have had no previous experience in teaching and so
will teach in the sma.ller towns. There, as a rule, are to be found, hardly
sufficient of the necessary essentials in carrying out a well-planned course,
or if the department is a new one, hardly sufficient of these can be purchased.
Ordinarily, when a Manual Training instructor goes into a community
to teach, he should familiarize himself with three things:
1. Is the department popular? 2. Wlizit are the conditions, size and
arrangement of the 1'oom.s in which he has to work J? VVhat is the extent
and character of the equipment?
Inwill speak of the first of these conditions in a very general way. In
discussing the other two points I will confine myself to facts and give the
actual conditions that frequently exist, together with some explanation of how
l, personally, have had to meet them.
Often in a community where the department is new, the instructor
will have to put forth a special effort to make his course popular, if it is
not already so. This he may have difficulty in doing. especially in meeting
the objections in regard to the expense of materials. This is an important
item, particularly if the community in which he is working is poor financially.
A-bout all that he can do is to use his best judgment in purchasing materials
and in selecting whatever equipment he will need.
On the other hand, the instructor of Manual Training will popularize
his department by recommending the introduction of those subjects which
bear directly upon the daily life of the community in which he is working.
For example, in the southern part of the state, in a city of about 6,000 in-
habitants, Manual Training is to be introduced during the coming year. The
principle occupation in that city is the manufacturing of machinery. Many
blacksiniths, pattern makers. moulders and machinists are employed there.
Undoubtedly then, the subjects which will be introduced in the hrst year are
drawing, woodworking and possibly toward the end of the year, some pattern
making. Later in the course, the other subjects of blacksmiting, moulding
and machine shop work might be taught.
In regard to my second point, namely, that of the condition, size and ar-
rangement of the rooms in which he has to work, from personal observation
u gl -.ev ,1-

et- -h -A ,
gg sron assinaii 1 't '- -
and conversation with experienced teachers and others familiar with condi-
tions in many of the sma.ller cities of the country, I find that in general the
handicaps are about the same. ,ln the majority of cases, the high schools
were planned and built before Manual Training was introduced into the cur-
riculum. Therefore, when the department wa.s introduced, some room which
probably formerly had been a coal I'0OlY1, supply 1'0OlI1, janitor 's quarters or
boiler room, was turned into a manual training shop.
These were some of the things which I had to contend with my first
year of teaching. The only room' available for manual training wa.s an un-
desirable one, in the northwest corner of the basement, formerly used as a
storeroom. The lighting was insufficient, and except upon bright days it was
necessary to resort to artificial lighting. The floor was of cement, rough,
and so naturally diflicult to keep free from dust and dirt.
The department had been equipped some years previous for drawing
and woodwork, but because of the unpopularity of the department, on ac-
count of the expense, the work had been dropped. This occurred four years
previous to the time that T was elected to reorganize it. Because of disuse,
proper care of the equipment had been overlooked and as a result many of
the tools and instruments had been lost or stolen. Very little of the draw-
ing material remained and an entirely new outfit had to be purchased. The
woodwork equipment consisted of benches and regular bench equipment. The
tools for general use were in poor condition. Witli the exception of a couple
of smooth planes and an assortment of steel bar clamps, there has been little
addition to it. But even so, our work has progressed well under these handi-
There was no machinery in the equipment and naturally that was our
greatest handicap. As ample storage room is always necessary, but not al-
ways available for storing odds and ends of lumber, unfinished work, stains
and other articles, this was another source of inconvenience. This, however,
was overcome by putting the boys to work at making storage cabinets as soon
as they were competent to do so. The building of these cabinets afforded
excellent opportunity for introducing community problems, which are a very
desirable part in all bench woodworking courses.
We had about one-third as many drawing boards as were necessary, and
those were entirely too small. Until the boys had had sufficient preparatory
work to enable them to build their own boards, the drawings hadpto be re-
moved from the boards at the end of each period, so that the next class could
use them. Soon after school opened in the fall, frames were made measur-
ing eighteen to twenty inches in width and about eight inches in height.
These, when placed on the woodworking benches, made a very comfortable
and eonvienent drawing bench.
Because all of the stock had to be gotten out by hand, at the begin-
ning 0 the course the boys who worked more quickly got out the stock for
the grade classes. Later, the grade classes were able to do this for them-
ag stout' assent is - Mcmfxxbvai- QQ?
selves. Each boy was given a stock and time card upon which he wrote the
number and size of the pieces for the article upon which he was to work. Us-
ually each job was divided into two or three parts. For example: In get-
ting out stock for a Morris chair, the pieces would be grouped as legs, rails
and slats. Stock for the legs would be gotten out first, then for the rails,
and finally, for the slats. This was done to make it easier for the boys to
take care of their own stock.
So difficulties and inconveniences are met and overcome. Every in-
structor of Manual Training must expect to encounter some of the conditions
herein enumerated, and it is part of his business to know how to cope with
them. But with a confidence in his own ability, and a thorough understand-
ing of his profession acquired from his training at Stout, he ought to be fit-
ted to overcome most of the obstacles, provided he is conscientious, interested
in his work, and has the interests of his pupils, and therefore those of the com-
munity, at heart.

Manual Training in the Superior Public Schools
To be in line with new ideas, any city the size of Superior must have
manual training of some kind. Some cities have a very complete equipment,
able to do almost any kind of work there is in the manual training line, while
in other cities there is only the equipment that allows woodwork and draw-
ing to be given.
Results can be obtained from both equipments. There is no question
but the greater equipped city will be able to do a greater variety of work, but
is that Work as high class and as practical as that of a smaller school? It is,
when it tries to give the boy a skill of hand that will allow him after finishing
the school to enter any trade and in the course of six months or so pick up
that trade and be able to do the work that the rest of the men are doing who
have been there for years.
It should be the aim of that school to ht the pupil not to follow any
one trade but to enter any trade and after he finds that is not the one he wants
to follow, enter into another one where he will be as able to pick that up as
he was the last one.
That is the aim of the Superior public schools. Although our equip-
ment is of the latter class, our attempt is to make the boys able to follow
more than one trade because of the skill of their hands. We attempt to
follow up the factory systems of conducting the shops. This is the first year
that it has been attempted.
Our high school shops consist of wood-turning room, drawing room
and two bench rooms. There is also a small lumber room and a stock room.
Manaual training is given here for four years, two periods a day for
five days a week. The first semester of the first year is elementary cabinet

making and mechanical drawing. In the cabinet making the boys are given
their first work in oak, the projects made are simple and yet involve all the
common joints. The work is all done by hand, no machinery being used.
The drawing consists of lettering and the drafting of the various
projects that will be made during the semester. The drawing is given with
the wood work, so that each drawing will be made about the time that the
project is started.
The second semester, the work given is cabinet making or furniture
construction. Here they are given a choice of what they want to make with
certain restrictions placed by the teacher. Drawing is also given here as in
the first semester. Each boy keeps a cost card, which is a record of the
amount of lumber used, the amount of time it takes to make the project and
the actual cost when finished. All the stock taken from the lumber room is
The second year is spent in the wood-turning room. Cabinet mak-
ing that involves turned parts is also taught here. For drawing the class
does some machine drawing and sketching. ln this shop work is done for
the other departments, as the making of mallets, vise handles, and such other
things that are needed in the schools.
In the third year architectural drawing and construction are given.
Details of construction, house planning and perspective are given in the draw-
ing. A small section of a house is built, using the various types of construc-
tions. The house is built in sections and put together afterward. All the
work is done in the school room.
The fourth year is planned to suit the individual pupil. They may
take more furniture making, more architectural construction or advanced
drawing. In the cabinet making classes the aim is this year to do more
class work and work for the school. The use of power machinery is started
with this class. I
Next year the installation of printing is practically an assured thing.
Here the aim will be to aid the English department. Of course the English
classes will receive more definite help, for it is a known fact that the spelling,
sentence construction and the grammar of the printing pupil will be strength-
The equipment will be planned to accommodate about twelve pupils.
The first cost will be about a thousand dollars. -
With the addition of printing to the work here, it means that another
step has been taken to get out of that rut and as each year passes better work
will be done, because of these new ideas that are finally getting through into
Now for the work in the grades. Woodivorlz is given in the seventh
and eighth grades only. The time is very short, only one hour a week is
given. Drawing must be taught also in this time. All the classes are large,
which fact makes it hard.

The grade shop is not equipped the best that you would ask for. Witli
the present equipment the best of work cannot be done, but however, we get
some fairly good work. The woodwork in the seventh grade is very ele-
mentary and in the eighth it progresses to more difficult problems. In the
eighth, the boys do a little repair work and some simple jobs about the
Next year there may be another man in the grades and that will re-
lieve the congestion there. It is the aim of the department to handle those
boys that are too old for their grade in the shop also. It is often the only
means that influence these boys to stay in school at all. Many times they
are the best workmen in the grades. Witli the new man we will be able to
handle all those fellows.
Wliile Superior is a little backward in the manual training work, the
other work that is being done here is leading the rest of the state. Social
center and playground work is in great demand and proving a very great
success. The grade buildings are all equipped to handle this work. The
last building to be so equipped is in the poorer part of the city. Witlioiit a
doubt it is one of the finest grade buildings to be found anywhere.
VVhil'e part of it is an old part, it has been remodeled so that it is as
good as new. In the new addition there is an assembly room, with a large-
sized stage at one end. This will seat six hundred people. It can also he
turned into' a gym. Here the basket ball games will be played and other
such games. Social center work in this district will find many uses for this
room. On the same floor will be found the domestic science rooms. Here a
kitchen has been fitted up that will rival any found in the high schools.
Night school and day school will be taught here. Nearby will be found the
manual training rooms, two large rooms, one for drawing and the other for
woodwork. It is the only shop in the grades that is so equipped. The aim
here will be similar to that in the other parts of the building.
In another part of the building is a big swimming pool. Several show-
er baths are in connection with this also. The boys all through the school
are given a chance to use this pool. lt is the means of having cleaner pupils
in the school. The boys enjoy this as .much as any feature that they have
in the building. The social center people get a chance to use this pool also.
This new school building will mean a great deal to this district in
which it has been constructed, and will fill the need long wanting. It is what
-other cities will be doing in the future when they build. Superior will
'equip its other grade buildings the same way as time goes on. As the dis-
tricts need it the work will be done.
It is the wish of all here that we may take the lead in the manual
training work as we have in the social center work. It is up to the men of
the department to make it what it should be and the sooner that we demand
'the better things the sooner Superior will be advancing in the work.
