In his talks to students, both in the class room and on the athletic field, he never fails to drive home the necessity of developing into a Machine He never fails to make an announce- ment at the close of Chapel. There is a healthful hardiness about dignity that never dreads contact and communion with others, however humble. Mr. J. R. Steel, our thoroughly eiiicient English teach- er, has spent several months in England and seems to be interested in ancient ruins and castles. He has a great fund of historical facts at his command. His special hobby is giving lectures and many a delinquent stud- ent has felt the sting of his sarcasm.

Certain thoughts are prayers, there are Moments when whatever be the attitude Of the body, the sonl is on its knees. Mr. E. D. Cave, head ofthe Mathematics Department, has only been with us one term, but nevertheless, he is one who has proven that he is thoroughly able to handle his department. He is brief and to the point in his ex- planations. He is liked by the students because he is subject to sickness. No man has come to true greatness, who has not felt in some degree that his life belongs to mankind. ' i I Miss Bertha M. Eckert, A.

ACADEMY OF BACONE COLLEGE. Oh, seven boys and girls are we, This year of ten and four, We launch our barques on life's great sea, And seek the enchanted shore. Two races in our class unite, Both strong and brave and free, Two colors twined, the red and white, Our sign of victory. Our forebears in the years gone by, Betimes in war were foes, Now rest in peace those heroes brave, Revered in their repose. We furl the red, the Hag of war, And twine it with the white, To show in friendship, truth and love, Two races now unite. The triumphs of the battle field, May win a victorts wreath, YVhile triumphs of the quiet life, May bring more lasting peace. Then we will change the arms of war, For sickle, plow, or pen, And teach the world in truth to love The arts of peace again. Oh, seven boys and girls are we, This class of four and ten, Proclaini to earth the joys of peace, And seek good will to men. -W. A. S. SHARP.

The con- stitution provides for the following officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Pianist, and two factotums' As the Sequoyah is a separate Society and distinct from the Sacajawea, joint meetings are held on the third Saturday evening' of each month in the Chapel of Rock- efeller Hall. Some of the programs this year have been especially good. Entertaining as well as instructive. It has been tl1e aim of the committee in charge to make the programs as instructive as possible and have each girl feel her own individual responsibility in making our Society better than ever before-even better than the Sequoyah. lVell may our Society be proud of tl1e fact that this year our persuasive debaters succeeded in carrying' off the victory and winning' the Saeajawea-Sequoyah Debate. Another thing' we are proud of, and well may be, is our new hall. It alone should be an inspiration to the girls to do better work. idle hope that each year those who come to fill the places left vacant by those who have gone out, may profit by the efforts and mistakes of those who have gone be- fore, and make the Saeajawea Literary Society a living monument to the brave Indian maiden, whose name it bears. Minonnn E. BECKWITH, '15. ' SE QUOYA lol LITERARY SOCIETY. Colors: Blue and White. For two years the name Sequoyah has been an incen- tive to the boys of Rockefeller Hall and an enthusiastic spirit arises when the honored name appears. SEQUOYA H LITERARY SOCIETY THE BACONE CHIEF U The work of the Society was not of such a redeeming quality in the autumn as to keep away the desire for im- provement. The boys did not realize the benefit of a good society so the progress was retarded for a short period. As the year progressed many problems appeared. The hope of supplying the debating team in the Cheeo-' tah-Bacone debate was realized to a certain extent. Two of our debaters made tl1e all school team. During the year we had disappointments. The first was to suiter defeat at the hands of the girls in the an- nual Sequoyah-Sacajawea debate. Next it was said that tl1e girls held to a higher standard of work than did the boys. These humiliating defeats aroused all to a de- termination to do better work. The boys who were slow to work came forward Zlllfl helped retrieve the misfortunes and put their shoulder to the wheel. They then saw the value of the Society. The evenings were changed from dull, sleepy talks and stammerings to pleasing and profit-Q able hours of united efforts to elevate the Society's work. Boys of varied talents were discovered. Musicians, orators and student critics are to be had at the asking. Much has been accomplished, yet some are wishing for harder tasks to perform. The co-operation of the teachers has been appreciated by every member. Only through their help have we reached a firm working basis and only through their influence have many been induced to do creditable work. A higher standard has been reached this year, after months of hard work. But tl1e1'e is always a feeling that we could have done better. Wve are hoping for a better and more self-reliant member- ship for the coming year and surely a trail of good work will follow in the wake. ORATORTCAL CLUB. OFFICERS I President, VVilliam A.

So tl1ey assembled and organized and now the Clllll is an entlinsiastie, work- ing' body of boys. Our chief object is to promote tl1e art of public speak- ing. XVe believe that orators are made as well as born, so we are busy making' them of our raw niaterial. Mneli l1as already been aoeoniplished. Some who have never spoken before i11 pnblie have broken the ice and now are beeoming efficient speakers. Exten1poraneo11s speech- es are 111I:'tdQ at our weekly 111eeti11g's. From this praetiee our members are gaining the ability to think readily while on their feet. WU: hope by tl1e work in the elnb to improve our literary society. A pla11 is now being carried o11t by which we aim to donate a set of books 011 oratory to tl1e College library. XVe do not tell of these aeeomplisliments simply to boast, but that tllQ ones who doubt the good of our elnb may be convinced that it is 21.11 excellent movement.

This is the fifth time that the respec- tive editorial boards have carried corrected and recor- reeted material to the print shop. 1Ve give credit for much of our success to the student body and the business men of Muskogee, who have helped us toward the end we are seeking. Believing that we have put out a better sample of our progress, our enthusiasm and our intellec- tual attainnients than our predecessors, and with hope of a greater progress in the eoniing year, we submit the 1914 t'Ci11EF to the judgment of our readers. rl I P, -.. ,-,--- .,- ,-, l:F' Xx..:!fl:iih1!1li':H1ll:f!f!f 42512 1 ' 422225 :Kg.1h:2lfai1 Imsiwia A , Q up XX Wiiiiimiw A.

THE BACONE CHIEF 27 He showed that a great appreciation of our gifts is nec- essary to their fullest development. The men who fail are those who fear to undertake responsibility because they are afraid of their weaknesses. The continual be- lief that our mind is capable of solving all the difhculties, which may confront it, becomes a sort of instinct, which prompts a man to face cheerfully all the problems of life. The habit of power, which assumes that we are capable of performing any work entrusted to us, has many ad- vantages, which operate to make one successful. The man who is willing to undertake responsibility bears the impress of self-confidence unmistakably upon him. In Mr. Steells lecture, Modern Education, he con- trasted the educations of ycste1'day and today. The view of the average student towards education was given and some of the things the new education must do. Our de- velopment and modern civilization demand new educa- tional methods. He told what the latest educators are doing for the student body of the world and how they are furthering better and more efficient methods in our new education. After his lecture Mr- Steel gave an excellent reading of the first half of Van Dyke's Lost Word. Mr. Sharp in his lecture gave a comparative exposi- tion of the four great religions of the world. His sub- ject was, The Great WVorld Quartettef' The order in the comparison of the religions was, Confucianism, Buddhism, Christianity and Mohammedanisin. Several similarities of the religions were given. They all have places for worship. They all adhere to the principles of their founders, and they all have for their prime object the future spiritual relief of humanity. Mr. Sharp gave the history of the religions and their founders. Budd- hism and Mohammendanism each have approximately three hundred million adherents, while Confucianism and Christianity each have four hundred millions adherents. In comparison of the religions, in thcii influence for good, Christianity is doing far more than the others. The number to be rendered in the lecture course for April is to be a recital by Miss Shelton and Miss Hamil- ton. Miss Hamilton will give musical productions and Miss Shelton will read several lyrics and also will give a prose reading. 7' U 28 THE BACONE CHIEF These lectures have been thoroughly enjoyed by the student body. Every lecture was interesting and was instructive. The Faculty Lecture Course has been a success this year and it is very probable that it will be continued next year. W. A. RoBEaTsoN, 'l4. AN INDIAN BALL GAME. Indians are fond of playing ball, and often ball teams from a number of towns meet at a given place to enjoy a game between two towns. They have a chairman, and a king, who selects the ground fwhich is generally on the prairiej, and arranges for match games. Sometimes the game begins on Thursday and lasts over Sunday, and sometimes it last for a week. Most of the people go early Monday morning. There are always large crowds of people coming from different parts of the country, and some come from a long distance. On the first day of the meet all the people stand fac- ing their opponents and singing a ball song, t'Don't look like we can beat you. but we will. They form two cir- cles, in the Iirst of which they meet, singing and march- ing around a number of times, then all rush into the sec- ond circle, which has a tire in the center. They take their places as quickly as possible and march around the fire for some time, it may be until midnight. This is done each night. The second day is spent in preparing for the ball game. On the third day they go to a place in the woods, and sing ball songs. This is called Indian religion. Their yell leader is called an owl, and after he has yelled awhile, the others join in and great excitement prevails. For supper they eat bread without salt or unleayened bread. At night four women sing while a man accom- panies on an Indian drum, which is made from the trunk of a small tree and carved into the shape of a horn, the large end being covered with buckskin. This drum can be heard for a long distance. Another man keeps time with a cocoanut shell, and when these men get tired, two others are appointed to take their places. On the fourth day, they start for the ball-ground and THE BACONE CHIEF 29 when a quarter of a mile from it. they stop and eat din- ner. After dinner they sing again, then twenty strong men are selected for each team, each town selecting its own. iWhen all is ready, the players march to the ball- ground, as they are not allowed to ride in the wagon. Tl1e women are left to drive the teams. Before appearing on the ball-ground, the players take red mud and paint their faces, and they dress like ani- mals, some representing the fox and others the tiger. After painting and dressing in this way, they must not be seen until they are in their places ready to play, and no one can recognize them, unless they are hurt and car- ried oft the field. The field is a quarter of a mile around and a rope is stretched around it. The men take their places, the ball is tossed up in the center and the game begins. They have curved sticks with which they pick up the ball and throw it to their own goal. These players show much courage, and unless badly hurt do not complain. If one is knocked down, he jumps up and gives a whoop. A man outside is appointed to watch the ball and re- port to the umpire when a ball is thrown over the goal. The umpire then drives a stick into the ground to mark the score, and when either side has twenty sticks driven into the ground, that side has won the game. Betting is done before the game begins and those who lose the bet, pay the victorious side. Very often the game is never finished, for generally tl1ey get into a iight and sometimes men are even killed. A liter the game is over all go home, the winners singing and rejoicing. Such a game as this is only played once in three to five years, but there are other games that are played every year. The game described was played by Artussee and Arbeka. Arbeka won. IDA TIGER, '16. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL REMEMABRANCE- My mind is all atlame and the wheels of my head Cfor they say I have wheelsj, are constantly whirling, be- cause graduating day and oration time is coming by and by. 30 THE BACONE CHIEF Wllen I have departed from Bacone, I will not re- member as the most beautiful spot the President's office, which I swept every morning-for if it is true that a per- son gets a pound of dirt a day, then I was twice blessed. Nor was it in the chicken yard, where I studied the art of chicken culture. Neither was it in the dining room, where three times a day I fed my material engine with the practical bread of existence. Far from it were the different class rooms, where Prof. Steel's cold gaze was fixed on my embarrassed counte- nance, or where Prof. Cave met my ignorant stare with a VVhy? Prove itgl' or where Miss Eckert's pleasant words of Going on, Paul, broke the silence. Following the cowpath from the Bacone campus, a person arrives on the sandy banks of the Arkansas river. Following this oft trodden path through a corn field, a sudden descent through the thickly-wooded bank, and one beholds a beautiful spring of fresh, pure water, running from the depths of Mother Earth. Magnificent trees loom upon all sides, while wild-grape vines and poison ivy gracefully deck the topmost limbs of the Sylvan giants. In one direction the eye can see the overhanging rocks, which can be rightly termed Infant Cliffs. Many times have tired pedestrians stopped on their dusty way to spread their lunches upon these natural tables. In the opposite direction two long smoke-colored railway bridges are visible, where trains pass by, giving the secluded spot its only sign of civilization. One sunny spring day I sauntered down the old cow trail, until I came to the beautiful little spring. After refreshing my sun-baked throat, I sought a little shel- tered spot where I could gaze without ceasing at the beauty of the scenery. Mother Nature played a trick on me, and I was soon asleep, dreaming of beautiful foun- tains, erystal waters, and the glassy seas, where the golden fishes swim, fearing neither the urchin's hook, nor the fisherman's seine. Suddenly in my dream I heard Neptune, that fierce God of the Sea, give forth a mighty shriek, which awak- ened me. Looking toward the railroad, I soon realized that it was not the angered God of the Sea, but was the THE BACONE CHIEF 31 whistle of the M., O. Sz G. train bound for Wagoner, which had stopped because an old gray mule was placidly nubbing the tall grass between the rails- PAUL PHILPIN, '14, BECOMING A MAN. The Youth finds in passing into manhood that the time has come in his life, when he undergoes a change. The boy, growing up has his days of sorrow and glad- ness, of sunshine and rain, yet he grows on day after day, becoming stronger and wiser, still he is a boy. But at the age when he merges into manhood, he is not a boy, nor yet a man. iVhat, it is hard to say, not even he knows, yet he often has opinions of himself which, un- fortunately, do not always fit. At this age he thinks that he has thoughts that no one else has ever thought be- fore. XVllQ11 he is disagreed with, he thinks he is misun- derstood, but he has confidence that he will soon be known. Varied are his ideas, and of course he gets just criticism. His air castles are undreamed of by older men. As time passes, each, being built upon sand, is jostled, then it totters, and a dream is broken. But he still dreams on. VVhen from him is grasped a cherished object, he builds on some other hope. He fights man- fully for his principles, is stubborn and reluctantly relin- quishes his ideas. He lacks not energy and determination but he needs power that shall help him solve his practical problems, power that shall help him realize a high individual life, that shall make him, not only for tl1e moment, but throughout his allotted time, to act out boldly all he has seen in vision and all he has learned from the good about him. Surround him with friends, who work for his in- terests, who themselves are noble, and he will step from this period a man ready to battle for justice. He who is noble in character and is a friend of the youth has an un- surpassed influence. His power for influence goes forth without his distinct volition. Neither does the youth al- ways know it and it is a critical period for him for merg- ing into manhood, he can no longer lean on strong arms. He has himself and God to rely uopn. He comes from behind this screen of his own value, which he has placed 32 THE BACONE CHIEF upon himself, and of this period of uncertainty, either a man of worth to his fellow men, or he will be one, who will distribute among all an air of hopelessness, gloom and depression. In this stage then he should be prayed for and given every possible help. He is on a balance and is soon by either the weight of right or wrong to be drawn to the beginning of a life of noble usefulness or a lief of wandering, searching for somethingg that it cannot find. On this decision hinges his own welfare and that of those with whom he is connected. The boy begins by a mixture of ambitions. He dreams and dreams. During that short period of uncertainty, that period when the material of his character, whether an alloy or pure element, having been molded slowly, a finished product is suddenly thrown on its own resources, his visions and air castles are torn from him one by one, until, when he merges into that man reliant upon himself, and his life work definitely before him, he is despondent because he could not grasp every opportunity, he could not be it all. He has tried many things and lost. Great things have fled from him and inaterialization of his many dreams eludes his path. He must have an awak- ening. He must lose time after time and rise at last seemingly deserted by his many ambitions, but a sober and wise man. He sees his failures but understands that it had to be so, he had to lose something. He realizes the truth of Goethe's statement, when he said: Everything cries out to us that we must renounce. Thou must go without, go without! That is the everlasting song, which every hour, all our life through, hoarsely sings to us, die and come to life, for so long as this is not accomplished thou art but a troubled guest upon an earth of gloom. W. A. Hoisnnfrson, '14, HINDIAN SUPERSTITIONSW There are a great many superstitious among the Choc- taw Indians. I had the pleasure of hearing several of these one night, while a crowd of Indians were sitting around the fire- In telling these tales the Choctaws call it Shok-ha-an-no-pah- Hog Talk. Here are two of the most interesting of the superstitious signs of how to THE BACONE CHIEF 33 become a doctor. There are several other ways accord- ing to their superstitious, but these are more common: Some of the Choctaws believe that, if an Indian lad wishes to become a medicine man, he must go into some desolate place and not eat anything or see anybody or go near any dwelling. After a certain number of days, on a dark night he must sit up and watch. At midnight he will hear footsteps coming. These footsteps which he hears are those of every different kind of animal. As each wild beast passes he must tell them all to pass on. lie must not be frightened at the sight of any of these beasts, but sit still. At the end of the string of animals are a certain num- ber of dwarfs. These dwarfs are to represent the wealth or poverty the lad is to have. The dwarfs who represent the poor are without clothing, the well dressed repre- sent tlie rich. He who wishes to become a doctor would choose one of the dwarfs. If he chooses one of the dwarfs without clothes, he will be a good doctor, but not wealthy, yet if he chooses a well dressed dwarf he will be rich. On the other hand if he choose an animal he will have the nature of the animal which he chooses. For example, if he chooses the wolf, he, himself, will be a thief. If he wants to be a doctor he must not choose one of the ani- mals. He must let all pass by and not be frightened for if he is cowardly he cannot be a Choctaw medicine man. Another way to become a doctor is without the knowl- edge of the boy, but that he is tested for becoming a good doctor. Oftimes dwarfs-Uk-kan-o-,ka-sha, steal up to a Choctaw home and without the knowledge of the parents they seize a child and take it to their dwellings- There the child is kept for a few days and then is told to go home. The child wanders on through the woods, not knowing where he is going and being followed by a dwarf. Suddenly the dwarf leaves and the boy easily finds his home. The dwarfs do not ask the boy not to tell his experiences and if he does not tell them, he will be a great medicien man, but if he does tell, he cantt be a doctor, and is likely to die, for the dwarfs have power to make him sick. Only the Indian doctor can save him. The dwarfs have little bows and arrows and go out 34 THE BACONE CHIEF on hunting expeditions. They fi11d a lizard and the little warrior dwarfs surround it and send a tiny arrow through its head. They use the lizard for food and the boy must eat them, too, while with them. One Bacone boy was sent from their little home, riding a wolf. WVhen he got home he did not know not to tell and did so. He became sick and was saved only by a Choctaw doctor. Many Indian lads pass through these tests successfully and make our great medicine men. YANCY Ii. JAMES, '16. AN UNUSUAL CONVERSATION. It was at midnight in the dining room at Bacone. You needn't look horrified, for there was not a boy or girl there. All was quiet and the tables looked like cof- fms in their white draperies. A soft purr and a noisy little squeak were the only audible sounds. The cat was not eating the mouse, as might be supposed, because she had so many good things in the kitchen that the taste for mice was entirely gone, but was telling her woes to her strange little companion. IVhat a day this has been ? she began. My nerves have been jumping all day. In the first place, I was awakened by a kick from one of the waiter boys. I stretched myself, then licked my face and paws till all the fur lay in the right way. I was ready for breakfast, which is more than some of the girls and boys could say. When the boys came in I saw some trying to comb their hair by running their fingers through it and one or two with a handkerchief around the neck instead of a collar and tie. The noise was dreadful for I guess they were sleepy and couldn't keep from dragging their feet. But then, I needn't hit the boys much worse than the girls, for they kept feeling here and there for a stray lock. A good many walked as though they could hardly move, though a few breathed fast and hard as though they had to run every step of the way over here. You'd be sur- prised if I told you who came with their shoes half but- toned, that is, every other button skipped. I didn't notice that so much, squealed the little mouse, as tl1e way they ate and talked in the dining THE BACONE CHIEF 35 room. Some did not like this or that, and made re- marks about the cooking, when I know perfectly well they wouldn't have had as good at home. A new girl forgot to pass things to the head of the table, and a boy, not very smal leither, laid his knife smeared with syrup on the clean table cloth. VVell, sneezed the cat, my nose doesn't feel very good as the result of a boy's carelessness. He left the spoon in his coffee, and when he passed the biscuits to his neighbor, he upset his cup and the hot stuff went all over the table and dripped down on my nose. It hurt me, but I did not feel as uncomfortable as that boy when a few ill-mannered ones laughed at him. Just then there was a big noise over near the center, but I couldn't see what it was about. Squeak, squeak, laughed the mouse, that was funny. A boy slipped a crust between his knees and down on the floor. I wanted it, but before I could get under the table, a silly girl saw me and began to act ner- vous, jerking her feet up on the rounds of her chair. Of course the boys laughed and scraped their feet on the floor to make a noise. I heard the matron coming and be- gan a regular game of fcatch me,' darting under first one table and then the other. Even the most dignified cast uneasy glances around while most of the girls gathered up their skirts and looked so frightened that I ran away in pity for them. Did you notice the feet under the tables? asked the cat. It was ridiculous. Some were crossed or stretched so far across that the one opposite had no room, some were hung by the heels on the rounds in front, while others, mostly boys, had a foot with the toe hooked on each side of their chair, few indeed had the sense to plant the feet squarely on the floor in frontf' HI didn't take time to lookf' answered the frisky mouse, 'fBut I heard a few talking clear across the room. It annoyed some, but I guess the ones who did that did not unde1'stand that it was vulgar to make re- marks about those present or even to say smart things to one another. But here, I'm not going to 'squeal' an- other time on anyone, for that is worse than ill-manners. So it is, yawned the cat. stretching. Anyway we 36 THE BACONE CHIEF have only looked at the dark side today. Come to think of it, I never have known of a student body so orderly and genteel. I guess because we are so accustomed to the best, we notice any little thing that goes wrong. For my part, I am proud of thc lads and quite fond of the lassies Qsyrupj of Bacone a11d sincerely hope I may live out my nine lives here. ELSIE MAY RANCK, '14. THE INFLUENCE OF LITERATURE. Literature to a great many people means life. For them it is a supreme pleasure to be surrounded by a large library, where they may go and talk with the greatest minds of all ages. Books may take us in thought to far- distant lands and make us feel that we are actually there. For instance, I read a book on Australia, and though I have never been there, I was so thrilled with the vivid de- scriptions of the life and manner of the people and the land itself, that to all practical purposes I was there in person. The influence wielded by the books we read is beyond our comprehension. Just as we are influenced by our friends and companions so we are iniiuenced by these 'tsilent partners. We must be just as careful to select good reading matter as we are to choose good friends. Every Work we read leaves a lasting imprint on the mind. If we want our minds uplifted and our lives made nobler we will select for our companions such authors as Words' worth, Shakespeare, Cooper, Dickens and others equally as good, but if we are willing that our minds be corrupted and our lives besmirched we will trifle away our time with the Yellow-back novel and wild, exciting stories such as 'fThree Years in Arkansas and Oklahoma Charlie. I can best illust1'ate perhaps by relating what has been the iniiuence upon my own life of some of the books I have read. I do not as yet possess a large library of my own, but my reading has been somewhat extensive and varied. As I have read historical works and studied the lives of great men-Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon and others-I have been inspired to go forth to conquest, not at the head of an army, but to overcome the well-nigh insurmountable difficulties of life and vanquish the enemies of mankind. THE BACONE CHIEF 37 As I have read '4Blackstone's Commentaries, I have been filled with a zeal to do my part toward bringing about a higher regard for law and order. There is doubtless no .form of literature which so in- spires and uplifts one as good poetry. Realizing the truth of the statement I have endeavored to become familiar with our best poets of all ages. Milton's Paradise Lost is my favorite, because I deem it the greatest poem writ- ten on a Bible theme. Unfortunately, men of such pro- found genius as Milton, Shakespeare or Browning are ap- preciated by only a comparatively few people. If they would only cultivate a taste for poetry they would find their lives enriched by some of the noblest sentiments ever uttered. To learn to enjoy this kind of literature should be the aim of all who want as companions the noblest and best friends- There is one book to which I go when I want to read the finest literature of the world, that which has wielded the greatest influence for good, and inspired men to live bet- ter lives,-the Bible. Here one may find almost any variety of subjects one wishes. Look in Romans for the finest logic, in the forty-fourth chapter of Genesis for the greatest plea for the love of man uttered by mortal lips. Law is found on page after page, and in the Psalms is the most beautiful and exquisite poetry ever written. Even Milton cannot compare with the descriptions therein. XVhere is there anything which so teaches love for the beautiful and good as does the Bible? S. R. WALIQINGSTICK, '14. English Teacher: Nell, who is the poet laureate of England? Nell James: 'fVVhat! er-Sir-yes-why I did not know that she ate any poet! 7 7 The other evening there were several visitors at Sharp's corner. Among the company there was a New- ly IVed couple, and the conversation turned upon tle discussion as to whether marriage was a success or not. Prof. Rice had the last word, he said: Speaking from experience, I can say it is a howling success at our house. 1 ., Iivliginuz SIMON HANCOCK, Editor. Bacone College, being a Christian school, emphasizes the religious side of education and encourages the stu- dents in all that makes for strong Christian character. The organization of the college church last year has in many Ways proved helpful to the younger Christians as well as the older ones, especially because they have learned a great deal about the methods of Churcli gov- ernment. The church is made up almost entirely of the students and teachers. lt has been active in every Work, and has contributed largely to both Home and Foreign Missions. Messengers have been sent to represent us in the various associational meetings.. Among the things we will remember long after leaving school will be the uplifting and inspiring services we have all along been privileged to attend. Our Sunday School is no doubt one of the largest and best organized of any in this association. It has so far outgrown the seating capacity of the College Chapel, that it was necessary to divide the school and have the primary department meet in the primary school build- ing. In the Y. M. C. A. and Y. XV. C. A., which are strictly students' organizations, managed and conducted by the students, the boys and girls have the best opportunity to develop and strengthen themselves. During the past year each society has had very successful meetings. Since the beginning of this school year, the attend- ance of the Y. M. C. A has grown rapidly, and much work has been done. A large number of the non-Chris- tian boys through these meetings have been led to decide for Christ and have taken active part in the Y. M. C. A. During these meetings a careful study of the book of Revelation was made. NVe are now making a study of the First Epistle of John, which we iind an interesting study. In November, this Association sent two messenl gers to represent us in the Y. M. C. A. Conference at THE BACONE CHIEF 39 Oklahoma City- And during the Christmas holidays, three representatives were sent to represent us in the Students' Volunteer Convention, which was held at Kansas City. The reports which they brought back were inspiring. SOHIG of the prominent Christian workers of the State and elsewhere visited us at various times dur- ing the year, and spoke to us with regard to the work in general, and of the work being done among the American Indians, in particular. We are glad that we can have such active Christian worke1's to come and encourage us in our Work. Our intention is to organize a band of four or five husky boys to go out during the summer vacation as a Gospel Team. This will be the first attempt in that line for Bacone. Prof. Sharp will coach the team and they are expecting to come out winners. The Y. XV. C. A. has done much the same work as tl1e Y. M. C. A. Its members were few at the beginning of the year, but with the help of those who did attend, a large number of girls became Christians before the close of the year, and now the attendance is large at each meeting and much good work is being done by them. They have a special way of raising funds, so they, without any trouble raised money, and sent three of their members to the Students' Volunteer Convention at Kan- sas City, Mo. Some of their members are Volunteers, who expect to become Missionaries. They have a practical talk, a missionary meeting and two devotional meetings each month. This society has also listened to some prominent speakers. Miss Dabb of New York City, visited them once this year, and gave her report of the Conference, which was held at Lake M ohonk. Encouraging talks from such visitors are help- ful to our societies. The girls also have had very suc- cessful meetings during the year. We are glad that We have such organizations among the students, because there is where we first learn to testify for Christ. The first week in February was given to Evangelistic services, conducted by Rev. G. Lee Phelps of Stroud, Oklahoma. Rev. Phelps has been for many years con- nected with the work among the Indians, as Missionary in the eastern part of the state, but at the present time A fl l 40 THE BACONE CHIEF his Missionary Work is among the Sac and Fox Indians. Since he has been working among the Indians for several years, he perhaps knows better what is best for them, than the Indians know themselves. So he does the work without much diliiculty. llis services here were very in- structive and edifying. 'll here were fifteen who received baptism at Baeone in February and others were baptized at their home churches. Twenty-five students have re- ceived baptism at Baeone since the beginning of this school year. IVe are glad that we can have such meet- ings to help uplift the lives of the Christians and non- Christian students in the school. FLM JT FIA LI. TEA bl unit YVILLIAM S.

Many of us do not real- ize this and do not even attempt to develop what little talent for music we have. lVe Bacone dwellers naturally like music and have taken to it this year in greater numbers than ever before. lu the fall when school began a large number of applica- tions Were made to the music teacher for lessons on the piano. In the first recital, which was given by them in December, there were so many students that they had to be divided and half of them give their recital on the first Friday and the other half the next. Never before has this occured at Baeone, so far as we know. 'llhey have shown marked advancement also and are accomplishing much in developing their talents for music. Miss llam- ilton takes great pains to see that her pupils practice as they ought and if they do not learn it is their fault. ln previous years we have been without a convenient build- ing for the department of music. We were in this condi- tion until this year was half gone. The piano students are now enjoying better equipment than before in the additions to Scott Hall. This means much because the 42 THE BACONE CHIEF teacher will be better able to oversee the work of her pupils. We are thankful that we have been able to ac- quire this improvement, which has been so much needed. We shall expect even greater progress and better work from the piano students. YVe are able this year to congratulate ourselves in having organized a chorus in which there are about thirty mixed voices. The chorus was organized early in the fall and Mr. J. Morris James secured as instructor. lVe have done pretty good work for Mr. James is a good chorus teacher and leader, who has had years of exper- ience in teaching vocal music and leading choruses. Mr. James comes out twice a week and gives private lessons in voice and gives instruction to the chorus. There are a number of the students who are taking private lessons this year and have made good progress since their beginning in the fall. Some have lately taken it up and are beginning to like it. In literary societies and Sunday services during the year we have been priv- ileged to listen to solos and quartettes sung by the vocal students. During the year the opportunity came for the music pupils to go and hear the world renouned singer, Tetrazzina, who came to Muskogee and sang in Conven- tion Hall. She is a wonderful singer. It is an inspira- tion to hear such a singer, because it shows what time and work put upon it may do for anyone who has a good voice. The music pupils were permitted to go to town and listen to the chorus which Mr. James has trained. They sang The Prodical Son. A large number of the students went and enjoyed the singing very much. We hope sometime to be able to sing well enough that people will come to hear us. For the violin department we also have a teacher from town. Only one or two are taking violin lessons. VVe hope that we may have more. 572211 JANE BAILEY, Editor. It would be difficult for scholars to attempt to define the term, 'tSoeial life at Baeonef' For as soon as they had painstakingly worked out a definition they would find that the definition did not define. For our social life is never the same two years in succession. Some- times it seems to approach infinity as a limit and some- times zero. This year we may sum up our social life under the following heads, a reception, parties and birthday part- ies, several spreads, called 'tBanquets, walking and recreation hour, formerly called social hour, but that word is now tabooed, as well as recreation hour itself. VVe are looking forward to the picnic, no longer an April- fool one, but a May day outing, a house warming and our final reception. In early September, when the campus was once more alive with voices, President and M rs. Randall gave what is known to the old students as the 'tgetting acquainted reception. This event in our school life is always eag- erly anticipated by those who know what is in store for them. For it is then that we meet new students and talk over by-genes with kindred spirits. After in- troductions and greetings, the faculty gathers in bunches to see who could tell the most exciting experiences of vacation time. While the students played drop the handkerchief or slipped into some quiet corner to re- sume former intimacy. For many the climax was reach- ed when the refreshments were forced to suffer indigni- ties at the mouths of hungry students. It is always pleasant when friends meet new friends at the opening of a new school year. On October 15th, the girls of Scott Hall conceived the idea of entertaining the Gridiron heroes so they informed their knights that they were expected to be at Hyde Park 44 THE BACONE CHIEF ready to break training. After arriving at the park luncheon was served from a table loaded bounteously with eggs, ham sandwiches, butter sandwiches and the whole family of sandwiches. There were dishes of delect- able pickles, preserved peaches and pears, and baskets of apples, to say nothing of the cakes. lVe do not have to say that the boys did ample justice to the dinner and proceeded to devour every bit they could beg, borrow or steal. They next proceeded to the skating rink to show off their skill and do all they could to damage the floor, and great were the falls thereof of the swains. The day ended all too soon and the boys concluded that some girls are not a bad lot after all. People of Bacone are not superstitious, but when the witching hour of Halloween night arrives, they are in- clined to talk of ghostly reveleries and to let all the stories of ghosts and goblins rush back into their minds. At 7 :30 the bell rang. Shrouded forms, by a silent mo- tion of the hand, ushered the trembling guests from the hill top up the stairway to the Attic of Scott Hall, more poetically called Sacajawca Hall. It was dimly lighted and the guests cast anxious glances around as in expec- tation of thc recesses. A sudden thrill of fear swept over them as they heard, far down below, the sound of muf- fled footsteps, and a low, weird chanting of husky voices drawing near. In an agony of suspense they leaned for- ward to learn, if possible, from whence these sounds came and as they looked they suddenly gasped and clung to their chairs. A line of masked figures, shrouded from head to foot, clutched lighted candles in their bony fing- ers, glided along with a slow and solemn movement, as the lighted candles waved fitfully to and fro, the terrified guests heard these unearthly words: 4'There was an old woman, Whose name was B-ro-0-wn, who had always lived in a M o-ound, and when they dug her out of the Gro-ound, from her nose to her ch-in, the worms crawled out, and the worms crawled i-in. The blood-cnrdling shrieks following this actually made the hair on the heads of two Senior boys stand THE BACONE CHIEF 45 erect for the rest of the year, and some of the horror stricken company, more than likely thought themselves immortal and concluded that they had entered into the subterranean world of darkness, and were witnessing the nightly parades of the spectral shades. llowever, they breathed more freely when the little Witches carrie and drove these ghosts away with their broomsticks, and aud- ible sighs of relief were heard when the last of the drap- eries disappeared down the Winding stairs. The guests were revived with refreshments suitable to the occasion and they were able to bid the inmates of Scott llall a hearty goodnight. The glories of the football season closed with a ban- quet given by the football boys. Unique invitations were sent out. At 7 o'clock of Dec. 10th, a merry crowd as- sembled in the Chapel and from there they went to the dining room, where places were assigned to each. The tables were decorated with mistletoe and flowers, and had all the charms of a genuine Dutch country tea table tonly very differentj- A number of the boys, who had become heroes of the pigskin received their 4' Hs.

Many people are inclined to dread the approach of a birthday, but in Scott Hall there is nothing that exercises a more delightful spell over the girls than a birthday party. Mother Morford is a genuine party in herself, and faithful to custom, she celebrates the anniversary of each daughter's natal day, driving away the cruel thoughts of getting old, by games and other amuse- ments. Sometimes we appear as little girls, bereft of rats and long dresses, bringing back the flavor of those happy days of yore. It has been our rule this year that each person who has a birthday, must do some stunt, and right well these stunts are done. We have discovered 46 THE BACONE CHIEF the beginnings of a good circus troupe, and can even fur- nish an old t'Bear that dances, a little puppy that chases the cat, an elephant, owl, rooster and turkey. Sometimes the Gold Dust Twins come and make us nice and shiny. These and many other merriments make our lives bright and wholesome in Scott Hall. The girls will long remember the trip on the Bacon Bat. Each one thought that Mother Morford was try- ing to coin a new word or was preparing to play a joke on us. The smaller girls had a regular war of opin- ions on what the Bacon Bat really was. They con- sulted grown ups, looked in every dictionary, and finally concluded that probably it was an obsolete word. They endured the suspense, however, until morning, when the girls were started out toward the rivevr laden with bundles and baskets. They soon arrived on the rocks, where fires were made, coffee pots set on, and boxes of sandwiches and marshmallows were opened. This was something new and each girl had an eager ap- petite. Snapshots were taken and we started home, stopping at the little spring to drink like so many nymphs at a fountain. The morning passed merrily to all but one. As Rachel rushed carelessly along, she fell, miles down, into a ditch, and with difficulty was she pulled out. She was unable to walk, much to her disgust, and had to be carried home. She said later that she felt like Alice in Wonderland, until she landed and then it wasnlt very wonderful. She recovered in a few days, however, and sinee then the girls have longed to go on another Bacon Bat. ' YVhen the victory of yesterday was reversed by the defeat of today, the boys of the Oratorical Club pleas- antly entertained their victors, the McAlester track men, in Rockefeller Hall. After the arrival of the guests, some time was spent in greetings. And then a short pro- gram was rendered, consisting of music and speeches made by the boys of the club, whose ambition is to be able to challenge the orations of Deniosthenes and Cicero. The boys are. indeed, to be commended for their rapid THE BACONE CHIEF 47 progress. Social chats, music and song were not for- gotten, during which the visitors made it plain to us that they considered themselves well treated. Punch and ice cream were served, and McAlester was escorted to the car line by Bacone and given a merry Hsendofff' April First! Have you ever been fooled? Girls, how do you like absorbent cotton chocolates and sassafras tea cocoa? Last, but not least in importance are the 'tcross coun- try walksf' They have constituted not a small part of our enjoyments. On a bright Monday morning two or three boys might be seen going from Rockefeller to Scott Hall on the look out for a ehaperon, to take the girls and boys for a walk in the afternoon. Sometimes We have had to wait for a Chap, and these walks have helped to teach us patience at least. The usual Walk was to the river and especially to the rocks. Kodak pictures were taken and we never forgot to stop at the little spring on the hill. How many times Will the water from the little spring moisten the lips of Baconians! HOW many memories cling about the rocks! Well, it is that sylvan nymphs are dumb and the rocks and trees have a language of their own. Custom has made us love these rocks, Baeonian haunts, and the memory of our pilgrim- ages to them will always be cherished. HI41INIS.U Isn't it strange how many different things a person can ind in a school like this? YVe have several Tigers, two Deers, a VVolf, a Beaver, two Starrs, a Shoat with his prominent Toe, a Vtlalkingstick, a Philippine, a King, some Sharp people and a couple of lVicks for the lamp, May and August, including a Sunday, Holland and the Hudson a Mann, some Steel a Fave a erson of Ranck 7 . . 7 7 p and a vast quantity of Rice.

This is a fact which is not lost sight of by the Ba- cone students. Each beautiful autumn day turned the campus in- to a large play-ground with numbers of boys and girls horribly niutilating an innocent looking tennis ball, and behind Scott Hall could be seen many boys and girls watching the progress made by the Red and Blue basketball teams, which showed to GILBERT FERGUSON better advantage than any Field my Lhamplm' basketball t e a m Bacone has produced for some time. However, this game was only indulged in, to any extent, by the girls. ' It is across the car line on the Athletic field, where the boys do the really big stunts, Football? WVell, some. In the first week after school began, scores of boys could be seen coming out at the command of Coach Huey to try to get a place on the team. After the tire- some try-out, a team was chosen, which made a credita- ble showing by winning the first game of the season, which was played with Chccotah on Sept. 17th. All through the season our team was noted for its heavy line plunges, which no team it played against was able to THE BACONE CHIEF 49 TH .X CK TE .X BI NVitl1Sti1llil.

Our baseball team has already played one game with the N. E. State Normal and by the score, which was three to four in favor of the N. Eastern, we feel that we have the material to make a good team, and will expect them to add many honors to their list. XVl1Qtll01' or not the honors won by Jim Thorpe in the Olympic games at Stockholm have ben an inspira- tion to our Indian athletes is a matter of conjecture. However, we know that Bacone is fast coming to the front among the best schools in this part of the state in ath- letics. On April 13th, 1913, a dual track meet between Ba- eone and the Muskogee High School was held on the Bacone Athletic field. The result of this meet was as follows: 100 yard dash, Muskogee 1st, Bacone 2 and 3rd, time, 11 seconds. 1 mile run, Muskogee 2nd, Bacone 1st and 3rd, time, 5 minutes and 11 seconds. 220 yard dash, Muskogee 1st, Bacone 2nd and 3rd, time, 22 4-5 seconds. 120 high hurdles, Muskogee 2nd, Bacone 1st and 3rd, time, 21 1-5 seconds. 440 yard run, Muskogee 2nd, Bacone 1st and 3rd, time, 55 2-5 seconds. 880 yard run, Muskogee 1st and 2nd, Bacone 3rd, time, 2 minutes and 14 seconds.

To cook is the heritage of every woman, to cook well the privilege of every girl, and because we believe this, Domestic Science has an important place in our course of study. One-fourth of the basement, supplied with the neces- sary things for the cooking department, has been used this year, but next year the department will have a rooni and better equipment. There are two classes, the first and second. These classes meet at diferent times. The first year class meet- ing on Xllednesday and Friday, and the second year meet- ing on Tuesday and Thursday, each having two periods a day or four periods a week. The first year we are taught how to cook and prepare vegetables, coffee, cereals, fish, meats, cheese, milk, soups, steam-brown bread, bread, cake, cookies and setting the table and serving. The second year class is mostly a re- view of all these together with the making of jelly and candy and the canning of fruit. At the close of the last lesson the classes give a supper and the preparing and cooking of the food is all done by the girls. VVe all feel that we have made much progress in our cooking. The sewing department will also have better equip- ment next year. There are two classes in sewing. The first year's work is hand work, such as the various simple stitches used for basting, over-handing, over-casting, french fell-- ing, running stitches, gathering, hemming, putting in gussets, putting on of bands, making button-holes, eye- lets, blind loops, hemming of damask, matching of stripes 60 THE BACONE CHIEF and checks, patching, putting on of extension hems, and facing and darning. The second year is mostly machine work, drafting of patterns, cutting and fitting of garments. The classes meet on different days having three periods a week- Two periods one day and one period the next day. Wll9Il both classes have finished the course required, three periods are spent in learning how to crochet, tatt, embroidery and knit. VVe have spent many happy hours in the sewing class as well as accomplishing much in learning to sew. IDA TIGER, 'l6. MANUAL TRAINING. The most helpful study for the boys who are expect- ing to become farmers is manual training. The training received from using the tools will be beneficial in later life. The beginners start in and take up mechanical drawing for one term. The drawing not only trains the eye, and the hand in exactness, but gives a practical knowledge of drawing plans. The boys are taught the name and use of each tool. Since all work is done by hand the training is practical, whereas, if the work was done by machinery the training would be of much less value. The work is a little discouraging at first, but after the first model is completed the feeling comes that one can make other articles. One soon learns that the work is not hard. as each piece is better understood. There is something facinating about the work which causes it to make the boys feel free to do their best work. This year the boys seem to have taken increased ink terest in their work. Book-racks, foot-stools, chairs, tables and writing desks are the out puts of our little shop. Professor Sharp is at the head of this department and hc is devoted to his work. The boys are constantly call- ing on him for assistance, which he is ready at any time to give. Vile are grateful for the training, which he has given us in the shop. ROY JAMES. beWW11H11H11.HH1HiHmM,1HwWWHHH'H i1N111I'NNI111NWWW1-WWNNNLi1HHr'HHMii'1H1:'H1 ,M N H Mum mm.
