i8 THE TARGET Willard Baseball Team WILLARD ATHLETICS. Great events occur daily — Berkeley went " over the top, " the Kaiser started his great offensive, and sports galloped unceremoniously back to Willard. Someone, who has taken care to hide his name and headpiece from the violence of those who persist in taking the part of Rip Van Winkle in the heart-racking drama of " Ever- lasting Sleep, " decided that it was time to come to earth, and forgetting for the time the, fair maidens of the northern section of the terrace, deep plots were laid to start things. The bomb exploded with the elec- tion of Bob Kanzee as Commission- er of Athletics, and after it, events followed rapidly. Hawthorne Grady whose voice might easily be heard from here to New York was chosen yell leader, and more than once he cracked his voice and our feelings with his mighty screeches — but alas! ' tis all for naught. Edison and Gar- field have refused to try out for track, which means no track meet. Ah, but gaze fondly upon the pictures of the noble braves, who dared the trials and troubles oi joining a baseball team. From 1 c f ' . to right in the top row they arc Sherman Bishop, right field; Ray White, first " " base; Adolphus Cheek, catcher; Delmont Hennion, utility man. In the center row they are Jonny Newson, pitcher; Art Hiscox, whose eyes watered during the fatal moment of camera thrills, shortstop; Lawrence Weisel, pitcher; Edward McEnearny, left field; Dick

THE TARGET 17 men, only of the source of his next meal. Suddenly the telegraph instruments inside the tent began to click. He heard the colonel go over to the table. A moment later he came out of the tent, holding a slip of paper in his hand, and with such an ex- pression of joy on his usually- grave face that Cecilio glanced up in amazement. " Cecilio, " exclaimed the colonel, tomorrow we leave for the coast, and from there for Europe. " " Oh, senor, " cried Cecilio, " what to me will happen? I too must go. " " I am sorry, " replied the colonel, " but we can take you no farther than the coast. There we will leave you in a home. When I come back, if I ever do, I will take you north with me. " Cecilio made no comment. He was stunned. The colonel went ofli to tell the good news to the boys. Cecilio heard them laughing and shouting. Suddenly he realized how much he would miss his friends, and with that realization came the first resolution of his life. He would go to the mythical place called " Eu- rope " with his regiment. Three weeks later the colonel ' s cabin on the transport was invaded by an irate sailor dragging with him a not-at-all abashed Mexican boy. The colonel started in amazement. " Why Cecilio, " he cried, " how on earth did you get here? " Cecilio grinned. " I ran away from the home, " he answered. " I want to go to Europe. It not hard to get aboard. " " I should think you would be half starved, " the colonel exclaimed, " but, " surveying the boy ' s rotund figure, " you don ' t look it. " " No, senor, " replied Cecilio with a reminiscent smile, " I hide in the — what you call him — galley. " Two summers later the bench out- side the colonel ' s tent overlooking the Rio Grande was again occupied, this time by the colonel himself. He and the remainder of, his men, a mere handful, were recovering from gas and shell-shock at their old camping-ground. The colonel glanc- ed up to see the tall, slender form of a boy in khaki approaching. The colonel watched him, thinking what a change the sight of the heroism of the battlefield had wrought in him. " Colonel, " said the boy, in per- fect English, " I want to resign as mascot. " " Why, Cecilio, " exclaimed the col- onel with a smile, " are you going to seek your fortune? " " No, colonel, " answered the boy, gravely, " I go to teach my people the meaning of this, " and suddenly on the wind, out-floated that toward which he pointed, the red, white and blue of " Old Glory. " PHYLLIS HARROUN. AWAKE, AMERICA! Awake! America, Awake! Stamp out these lawless, shameless foes, Who seek to desecrate and take, Away our hard-begotten homes. Their loathsome thoughts exter- minate, And flourish in their stead the right Instead of savage, fiendish hate, Forever man ' s worst bane and blight. Americans, the sword unsheath, Democracy must thrive and live; That we may freedom ' s sweet air breathe, Ten million men their lives would give. PAUL ALBERT.

THE TARGET 19 Cleverdon, third base, and our fam- ous yell leader, Hawthorne Grady. Along the bottom are Robert Kan- zee, who plays center, George Gaw, second base, and Carroll Steiner, catcher. In our first game with Edison we were defeated by the close score of 4 to 3. The batteries were Weisel, Newsom and Steiner. The second game, with Garfield, was won in the seventh inning when White singled and was followed by Hiscox, who also singled. The score was 12 to 6 in our favor, and the batteries were Newson, and Cheek, Steiner. We hope next year to have a good baseball, basketball, and track team. THE CAT ' S DREAM. (Exercise in verbs — lie, lay, sit, etc.) " Just as soon as I catch this gopher I will lie down. I ' m so tired, " said the cat sititng by the gopher hole. After he had sat there a long while he caught the gopher. He laid it down and lay down to rest. When he had lain a short time he sat up. The gopher which should have been lying there was gone. " I have laid a gopher down only recently. Who took it? " said cat number one. I have been sitting here ever since you have lain down. I don ' t believe you did lay any gopher down, " said cat number two who always lay by cat number one when he (cat one) slept. It was at this juncture that he awoke to find cat two just ready to make off with his gopher. MARY CHAMBERLAIN. Food fights for freedom. THE GHOST IN THE ATTIC. Jimmie Butler was coming home from a picture show one night in November. His family had gone to a theater to hear John McCormack sing. The night was very dark and on account of this the arc light shone out with greater brilliancy than before. As Jimmy neared home, he thought he saw a light in the attic. He wondered why a light was on with nobody home. As he same nearer he saw the light was large and oval-shaped like a face. Jimmy had been reading ghost-stories the night before and he imagined that this thing was a ghost. At the thought he stood still and wonder- ed what he would do. All of a sudden he saw the thing sway back and forth. That settled it. ■ He would wait until the rest of the family came home before he would go in the house. After about an hour of waiting Jimmy got tired and decided to in- vestigate for himself. So he un- locked the front door and went up- stairs to the attic. As he came near the room where the thing was, he expected to see anything from a skeleton to a monster in the room. He silently opened the door about an inch and peaked in. He nearly fell over with laughing when he- saw what was in the room, for the awful ghost was nothing but his brother ' s punching bag with the arc- light shining on it and the wind making it sway back and forth!
