JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY. Standing foremost among the great items of Bacone College for the year 1914-15, will be found the record of the would be noted Junior Class. - At the beginning of our history we were confronted with many apparently impossible problems, but time and experience have made the seemingly impossible, possible. A weighty problem for us to meet at first was the com- petition with our Superiors , the more or less dignified Seniors, sometimes more, often times less. However, a vig- orous growth has taken place within the last seven months and we are forced to believe that we are not far behind our competitors. Variows minor problems have arisen to be solved. The extraordinary powers of eloquence and oratory in the boys of this class quite equal that of Webster. It has three distinguished debators who are destined to sway thou- sands of the noblest citizens some day. We also feel that 18 THE BACONE- CHIEF, there are certain unknown facts in regard to natural phe- nomena within reasonable reach of our scientific genius, and are certain that a second Beethoven and Caruso com- bined, will thrill the musical world. Our girls who have ex- tensive knowledge and interests for the domesticities of life, are no doubt promising queens of the household for states- men, leaders and men-of-letters in time to come. In athletics we are not renowned, but show a Job- like patience, and a try, try again spirit. p We only regret that the space awarded us for our his- tory is not sufficient for telling you fully the various accom- plishments of arts and sciences planted in the membership of our class g but suffice it to say, they are the true vine upon which the choicest fruit will grow. Hoping to let you hear from us as Seniors this time next year, we submit ourselves to the mantle of oblivion for the present, and hope to shine with resplendent glory in the future. HISTORIAN.

SOPHOMORE CLASS TWENTY YEARS LATER. The following letter was written by Iva L. Mosier, a leading suffragette, and Maye Mclntosh, a Domestic Science teacher, of Chicago, Ill., to the Hon. Given Garner, a promi- nent lawyer of Muskogee, Okla.: Chicago, Ill., Sept. 27 , 1935. Our dear Old Classmate: At the request of the class of 1917, who held a reunion here in Chicago a short time ago, we are writing to tell you about all of your old classmates. We were very sorry that you could not be here to find out about us for yourself, but, as it was impossible, we shall try to tell you. Tillian Tickness, the Treasurer of our class, left a few days ago for China, as a missionary. She has been a great help to her own people, and will be missed very much by her many friends. A prominent physician of this city is Doctor John Paden, who used to have hivs mind any place but on his books. We often dine with Dr. and Mrs. Paden in their beautiful home here in the city. We are sure you will be glad to hear that Athalene Brown, who used to compose our class poems, is now a well known novelist of Boston.

You will also remember Ethel Phelps, who used to have a pleasant smile for everyone. She is living happily with her husband in the Blue Grass Regions of Kentucky. She always did say her greatest ambition was to be a promi- nent society lady, and she is one just at the present time. Her brother, Don , is a great man, and is running for some high office in the state of Kentucky. We are almost sure he will be unanimously elected. Lartie Fieldis, who was little but mighty, is now an honest tiller of the soil and is living in eastern Oklahoma. We almost forgot to tell you of ourselves, but we came to this city a few years ago for two reasons. One is for the good of humanity and the other that we might earn our daily bread by the Sweat of our Brow. Hoping you will keep in touch with your old classmates, we are, Sincerely yours, . IVA L.

Out of that number, seven were from the Bacone eighth grade of last year. The others came from schools elsewhere, but were welcomed by the Baconians. However, there are only nine left. There is only one athlete in the class, but we expect Allen Holmes to carry off a goodly number of prizes in the field-meet at the end of the year, for he has already won his letter, and we do not hesitate to predict this. Whatever a member of this class does or endeavors to do, will be done well. The girls are taking a Domestic Science course, and are becoming first class seamstresses and cooks. At the end of our High School course, we can safely prophesy, they will be hard to surpass in the knowledge of Domestic Science. We hope that this class may stick together for the next three years and be, at the end of that time, one of the best classes that has gone through Bacone. ' HISTORIAN. AQOK-lg.

SACAJAWEA LITERARY SOCIETY. The pride of our girls is our Sacajawea Literary So- ciety, which bears the name of the Indian maiden, Saca- jawea, who led Lewis and Clark on the famous trail from the Upper Missouri River, through the regions of the Da- kotas, Montana, Oregon, to the Pacific Coast. Sacajawea was the wife of Charboneau, the cook of the expedition. When Charboneau was engaged as cook, his Wife insisted upon going with him. At first the leaders and all the men of the company declared that this was impos- sible, since she had a little son only six weeks old. But Sacajawea insisted upon going, and this proved to be a great help to the explorers because she knew a great many of the places in the unexplored country, and in the places that she did not know, she seemed to be guided by her in- stinct. Sacajawea was a daughter and sister of the Shoshone Chiefs. She used her influence in many ways, in behalf of the explorers, with the Indian tribes, which they met. At times when there was trouble between the little company and the Indians, Sacajawea interceded and made them treat each other as friends. We girls are trying to follow her example. It is not likely that we will be called upon to lead a Lewis and Clark expedition, but we may lead others in an educational way. The society meets once a Week. Its aim is to teach the girls how to organize, how to carry on a literary society, and how to make the members feel at home on the plat- form. The committees have shown great intelligence in ar- ranging exceedingly interesting programs, which consisted of extemporaneous debates, plays, dialogues, readings, cur- up-mam sazmagf fwmf new Arm-W wwf - 1- L2 .Q-v .aww .rm I I-22 -1:.

The students of this year have the pleasure of knowing that the society had the most successful year since its organ- ization. This proves that the girls have taken greater in- terest in the literary Work than ever before. ' NELL JAMES, '16. SEQUOYAH LITERARY SOCIETY. We got our name from Sequoyah, who was an Indian of the Cherokee Tribe, and a noted man among his people. He invented the Cherokee alphabet, having a character for each sound, about the year 1821. The greatest educational advantage among the Cherokees was their newspaper, which the nation published and furnished free to the members of the tribe. Ift was printed both in the Cherokee and the English language, and was known as the Phoenix. It was started in 1827, before the Cherokees left their homes in the east. The paper was discontinued in 1832, but was re-estab- lished in 1844 under the name of the Cherokee Advocate. The publication was stopped again on account of the Civil War, but in 1870 iit was established again, and continued until 1906. . c The literary work in Bacone College, we have found has been very interesting to every boy and to the faculty. The boys do splendid work in their society. At the close of the third year of the Sequoyah Literary Society, we find that it has a record that is not easily sur- passed. Many of the officers and members have been able work- ers and their desire to help and uplift their fellow members has succeeded in a large measure, and their lives will be taken as examples by the next generation of Indian stu- dents. We all understand that the aim of the society is to train, and afford an opportunity to every member for literary work. We have had debates. extemporaneous speeches dia- logues, current events, local news and special musical num- bers. We meet regularly each Saturday evening through the school year. While we feel that the work has been success- ful this year, we hope the ensuing year's work shall be still better. LOUIS KING, '19. THE BACONE CHIEF EDITORIAL STAFF : Ada M.

It was a beautiful balmy morning with no clouds save a few white fleeces that floated along the western sky, when Walinahka stepped into her little birch canoe and glided away down the winding river which was shadowed by over- hanging willows. She had not gone far when there came a low whistle from the woods, footsteps were soon heard ap- proaching, and looking up Wahnahka beheld her lover, Lit- tle Bear. Her beautiful face was wreathed in smiles for a few moments, but these soon faded, and a lsad look came over her countenance. As Little Bear started to step into the boat and row Wahnahka to the opposite side of the river she beckoned him back. Then looking up into his clouded face she told him that her father had promised her to the Medi- cine Man who was feared by all of the tribe. Little Bear then told Wahnahka to shoot an arrow into the top limb of an old oak tree nearby if she ever needed him. And with a lingering smile he left her. An hour later as Wahnahka entered the camp several women met her and told her that many of their bravest warriors had died and others were dying. Just as Wah- nahka stepped into their little wigwam she heard a low groan and looking around she saw her father writhing and groaning. The Medicine Man was bending over him with a mock expression of sympathy which was unnoticed by the innocent daughter. About twelve o'clock that night the father called her to his bedside and told her that he was going to die and he asked her to be as goodia little daughter as she had always been, and after three years to marry the Medicine Man who would then be Chief of the tribe. At that moment a large white bird flew into the camp and Wahnahka knew that he THE BACONE CHIEF 31 had come to accompany her father's spirit to the happy hunting ground. Then stooping down she kissed him for the last time and walked out among the trees there to weep and mourn. Three years have passed and Wahnahka is seen slowly ascending the hill which is opposite the camp. She seemed to be very sadg perhaps she was thinking of the morrow when she was to become the bride of the Medicine Man. On the day before the marriage of the Chiefs daughter the flowers were always given power by the Great Spirit to speak to the bride and warn her by omens. Each little flower bowed its head in homage as they bade her good morning. Then a big white lily said: If you pluck me and go where I point, I will show you a secret. The little violets and daisies implored her to take them also. Then Wahnahka gathered a large bouquet of violets and made a wreath of the flowervs and placed them on her head. She then began to pick daisies and when she had gathered a large bouquet she stooped down and dug up the beautiful lily. The lily immediately began to point to a large rock about a half mile away. .Wahnahka kept going until the violets warned her to go quietly for if she was caught there she would be killed. So she crept along quite noiselessly until she had reached the rock. Peep in whispered a wee little Daisy. When Wahnahka looked inside the great rock she saw the Medicine Man dancing around a large pile of bones. These were the bones of the people he had killed in some mysterious way. The wizard did not know that he was being watched so he took several big leaves and put them in a pot of boiling water. That is the poison medicine which has killed so many people, said the lily. Wahnahka asked her friends, the flowers, what to do, and the violets cried: Send us as a message to your lover. Wahnahka granted the request and took the little wreath, fastened it to an arrow and aimed at the highest oak. She gently pulled the bow and away Hew the arrow into the air. That evening as Little Bear was passing through the Woods, he saw the arrow which was the bearer of a message from his loved one. He climbed up the tree to where the arrow was hanging, and the violets told him the story of their adventure. Little Bear at once started to the camp to tell the In- dians about the Medicine Man. Wheii he reached the camp every one came running to 32 THE BACONE CHIEF meet him and asked what he saw around the tepee of the Medicine Man, and looking up he 'saw a great many black animals approaching the wizard's tepee. Suddenly the wind began to blow, the lightning flashed and was answered by loud claps of thunder. The Indians knew that the animals of the lower world had come to claim their victim. Presently a large black serpent glided out 0 the wig- wam and was followed by black beasts of all descriptions, some with wings, horns, and eyes of fire. Then everything was quiet and lstillness reigned. The next day the Indians killed a large buffalo and had a feast in honor of the happy pair-Wahnahka and Little Bear, and also made him Chief. The Indians learned that the Medicine Man had been killing their people for many, many years, and had stolen their wampum. But not even the sly old wizard was able to conceal his sins from the world. He had been caught, found guilty, and transformed into a black serpent. Thus runs the story of The Passing of the Wizard. ATI-IALENE BROWN, '17, ' Q DREAMING. One night in late November, 1 sat alone in my room, trying to learn some of the things, which I would be ex- pected to know next day. After two hours of indifferent studying, I began to feel painfully sleepy. Going to the window, I threw it open, and looked out into the dark and misty night, where the Cottonwood trees, which had so re- cently parted with their holiday costumes, appeared ghostly bare and bleak. When I turned my gaze toward the city, I thought of Longfellow's memorable lines: I see the lights of the village Gleam through the rain and the inist, And a feeling of sadness comes o'er me That my soul cannot resist. Casting a last look at the heavens, I noticed the stars, which I thought looked cold, and twinkled less brilliantly than was their wont. Having been refreshed by the cool, damp breeze of the night, I sat down in my chair, and began to read -Gardiner's French Revolution . I read and read until the sigh of the Cottonwood trees became less and less audible, and the puff- ing of the long freight trains began to sound like the mur- THE BACONE CHIEF 33 murs of a disheartened people, overwhelmed by their daily burdens. All at once, I thought that I had graduated, that I had placed my LL. B. in my trunk, and was being floated across the mighty Atlantic. When I landed in England, it seemed to me to be vastly different from the England of which I had studied. As I toured my own native country of Ireland, I was surprised to see soldiers here, soldiers everywhere, who showed the scars of recent service. However, I said to myself, I am much pleased to note the number of men who represent them in the English Parliament. As I entered Berlin one evening I saw happy crowds of people thronging the streets, shouting something, which I later learned was Hurrah for the President l A few days later, while in Paris, I noticed that everyone seemed con- tented, even gay, and while reading the editorials in the paper, I was impressed by the number of references to Rus- sia. Even the people on the streets seemed to talk about nothing but- What! OH! The ten o'clock bell! Have I been dream- ing? JNO. L. MURPHY. - THE IDEAL YOUNG WOMEN. Elbert Hubbard usays, You had better live your best and act your best, and think your best today, for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomor- rows that follow. I have in mind the Ideal Young Woman. She has a cheerful and happy countenance and this is the best invest- ment a woman can make. It is a double reaction g just the habit of a sunny countenance makes one feel better. Even those around her have the same feeling and through them again reacts upon self. Her dress and hair are always neat, plain and simple. She never dresses to the extreme in order to attract the at- tention of others. She never wears an ornament simply be- cause it is pretty in itself g cheap jewelry and trinkets are never seen about her. Her voice is low and sweet and you never hear her using by-words or slang expressions. She is gentle, kind, unselfish, sincere and has respect for those about her. Her grace of movement expresses the rythm and har- mony of her inner life. She is never silly, and while on the streets she ims careful of her actions and conduct. She has no desire to go to dances, balls, or moving picture shows. 34 THE BACONE CHIEF She has an influence upon the younger people and has that beauty of thought and life which wins admiration. People make way for her and have respect for her. Anyone coming in Contact with her will love and admire her. She is a pattern, and leader of young girls,-the most influential leader,-why? Because she is the Ideal Young Woman. If you look closely you will find that the culture of her heart and mind, and the refined nature have led her to give careful attention to her appearance, conversation and manners. i However well a woman may look to outer things, she cannot be truly loved and admired or attractiveg she cannot express the full degree of magnetism which draws others toward her, winning for her friends and influence, unless she carries herself well. She doeth little kindnesses Which most leave undone or despise, A For naught that sets one heart at ease,- Or giveth happiness or peace,-- Is low-esteemed in her eyes. She is most fair and thereunto Her lifeedoth rightly harmonize, Feeling or thought that was not true, Ne'er made less beautiful the blue Unclouded heaven of her eyes. -Tennyson. IDA R. TIGER, '16. A TRIP TO MARS. After planning a trip to Mars last summer, I secured an airship and a birdman for the purpose of sailing upon the air to the planet. ' August the 14th We left this earth for our long and ad- venturous tour of the air, and after viewing some of the large cities from the airship it was not long until we were lost from sight. Traveling this way for about a week we found that in the distance we could see a planet which we supposed to be Mars, and which we had decided to explore. In about three hours we landed on the planet and after find- ing some old acquaintances I learned from them that we had landed on the wrong planetg inlstead of being on Mars I was on the planet Jupiter. I decided to visit my old friends in their beautiful homes. I first stopped with William James, the mayor of the town, and then I visited with Paul Philpin, who was the editor of a newspaper, both of these old schoolmates, and I talked of old times at Bacone. After staying there three more days I secured supplies enough to last for two weeks and then started from Jupiter. THE BACONE CHIEF 35 When we had traveled for two days I thought I could see a moon which belonged to some planet, but seeing no other signs of the planet I decided that I was mistaken. After nine days more we came in sight of another planet which proved to be Mars. In about two hours we alighted and found some very friendly little people who were the first we had seen of their kind. We inquired and found that we were on the right planet this time. The people were so delicate that we had to be careful to keep from hurting them when we picked them up or played with them. They had a great number of railroads with trams about three times the size of our toy trams, and al- though we think these to be very much too small to be of any use here, they are serviceable on Mars. These little people lived in small dugouts on the hill- sides. While I was on Mars there was an earthquake which, although not very great to me, was very destructive to my new friends, for a great number were killed and also a great number were left homeless. Two days later Jesse Tiger and Murrow James came to Mars and as I had been schoolmates with these boys, it was not so lonesome for me as at first. On account of this I de- cided to stay another week and attend a field meet to be held by these little people. The day came and one of these small men showed us the field where the meet' was to be held. We were asked to be judges so we started the events among which were the 10-foot and 20-foot dashes, the 100-foot and 200-foot run, the low hurdles and the high hurdles which were about six inches and nine inches high, respectively, the high jump, the pole vault, the stone put Cinstead of the shot putj and the gravel throw. After the meet was over our small friends. said that there were some records broken in the meet. Two days later I secured supplies such as they had and. then told Murrow and Jesse good bye, and left the planet Mars. When we had traveled for a week, we again came in sight of a planet, which on closer observation I decided was the earth. We started straight for it, and in less. than three hours landed in Mexico. There was a battle going on at the time, so I left that country and made my way back to St. Louis, the place from which I started. H. G. GARNER, '17. ABSOLUTELY TRUE. Longevity is a rather fancy name for a dog, but when the particular dog is a large brute, red-headed and dreamy- 36 THE BACONE CHIEF eyed, it does not seem so extraordinary after all. Long- evity was the mascot of Company M, Twenty-eighth United States Infantry, which in 1900 was stationed at Fort Vancouver, Wash. When the company went to Frisco the dog went along and also embarked on the United States transport, Grant , with the rest of the soldiers. In due time the boat pulled out for Manila. During the first twenty-four hours Longevity was as seasick as the rest of the passengers, and it was a pitiful sight to see him chase up and down the decks, howling mournfully for some one to show him the way home. During his blind and sickly rambling he ran into the pointed end of the anchor and had one of his eyes badly torn. He was taken to the hospital where the wounded place was padded with cotton and the lids were sewed up with cat-gut, making a rather pathetic, but funny sight. With the loss of the eye Longevity seemed to lose the friendship of most of the boys, and he soon became a mark at which hard-tack was hurled, but no one had the heart to kill him. Upon arrival in the Philippine Islands he quickly made himself disliked by the Filipinos because of his chicken-stealing ability, and he caused such an uproar among the natives that the captain ordered him locked up. After a week's rest the company went on an eight-day trip to the mountains, taking the dog along. On the third day a ravine of frightful depth had to be crossed. It was about ten .feet wide and was spanned by a single log. Sud- denly the diabolical plan of getting rid of the dog started some whereg the men lined up on both sides of the ravine and Longevity was enticed across. Just as he reached the middle, a slight movement of the log made him slip and fall. Down he went at a rapidly increasing rate. For a mo- ment the yells were heard and then became inaudible. Sud- denly with a noise like a cannon he struck the rushing water countless feet below. That dog must have landed at a mile-a-minute gait, said one. Yes, said another, and enough water splashed up to nearly drown a half dozen of us fellows. With a last look at Longevity's watery grave the company moved on and in five days arrived again at their quarters. As they were all seated around the fire that night, just before taps, some one suddenly shrieked, bringing the com- pany instantly to their feet. Instead of their enemy, there bounded into their midst a large red-headed dog, Long- evity. himself. It may sound strange, but stranger still. was the fact that during his five days' search for the com- THE BACONE CHIEF 37 pany the cotton had disappeared and both of those hand- some eyes looked up at the staring men as dreamily as of old. Any member of the company stands ready to corrob- orate this story. Yes, gentle reader, you may shake your head and say Incredible, but- SIMON M. HANCOCK, '16. THE PASSING OF SOCIAL. Every year the 'Dearly Beloved Social Hour has been slowly dwindling away in Bacone because,-well, for reasons too numerous to mention. But the chief realson is-we have all come to the conclusion that it drew our attention from the daily routine of school work. Nevertheless there are few who have not been heard to say, Oh dear, I wonder how it would seem to have a few moments of Social Hour ?,' At times we may see lonely girls casting longing glances toward Rockefeller Hall, or eager boys running about the campus in hope of getting a sweet smile from some inmate of Sacajawea Hall. But all this is in vain. Oh, yes, it has passed away long ago, and we have come to the conclusion that school is the place to study and concentrate our minds on mathematics, English, Latin, etc. Sunday afternoon is a dreary time for those who in- habit Bacone. It happened to be one of -those dreary Sunday afternoons, when the hours dragged by with aggravating slowness, that I dreamed a dream that could not be. I could see Dear Old Bacone transfigured into a most beautiful place, surrounded by stately trees which lifted their heads with great dignity into the balmy air. The cam- pus was covered with soft green grass which had never been trampled by enthusiastic boys practicing baseball, football, etc. Surrounding the Heart,' was a beautiful walk shaded by dark, overhanging trees. p Here and there I could see happy boys and girls stroll- ing down the path enjoying the cool, enchanting breeze and occasionally glancing toward the great ball of fire which was slowly sinking behind Fern Mountain. How happy they all seemed to be, but I was sorry to see things so changed and found myself longing for the Bacone I once loved. I heard a bell pealingg its echoes returned from afar, I wondered why it was ringing, suddenly I heard some one saying: Awake! the supper bell is ringing! and my dream was over. I found myself glad that Bacone was the same, and had not changed as in the dream g and you, dear reader, I am sure would have felt the same Way. IVA L. MOSIER, '17. Y. YV. C A. 4 , ' f r ' LA: JOHN L. MURPHY, Editor. Someone has said: The three most beautiful words in the English language are 'Heaven, Home and Motherf Re- alizing that no person's education is complete Without the person has some knowledge of the Bible, and adoration for his or her parents, and a proper regard for the sacredness of the home, the faculty of Bacone College has labored faith- fully to instill into the heart of each student that one thing which is so essential to all happiness, a Christian spirit. The College maintains a fully organized church for the benefit of the students. The fact that more than one hun- dred students are members of the Bacone Baptist Church, shows the powerful influence the church has upon their lives. Regular preaching service is conducted by the pastor each Sunday evening. In these Sunday evening services the stu- dents have the opportunity of hearing and analyzing series of sermons. At eleven o'clock A. M. there is a service con- ducted for those who have not so good a command of the English language. This arrangement gives everyone an op- portunity to get all possible out of their schooling. There is a prayer meeting conducted regularly every Week for all. The Bacone Church has one of the largest and best or- ganized Sunday Schools in this association. The Sunday School is divided into eighteen classes, which are taught by teachers who have diplomas which they received .after doing much hard studying in the Normal Teachers' Training Course. Their previous training enables them to present the great truths to their pupils in such a manner that even the least can understand them. Under the able leadership of the Superintendent, Prof. A. C. Rice, our Sunday School each Week approaches nearer and nearer the goal of perfec- tion. The Sunday School feels that it is more blessed to give 5? ITT Z'?:?:i '.?F!:' 'AS- Srif ' R573-E T 5' Y.

THE BACONE CHIEF 41 than to receive, so it has given fifty dollars to the fund for our new building. The Y. M. C. A. has been a great force in helping the boys make a success of their school life. When a strange boy comes into the College, he is met by the Y. QM. C. A. boys and made to feel that some one is interested in him. Per- haps a few people realize how much the friendly interest of the Y. M. C. A. members does to drive away that feeling of homesickness and discouragement which so many boys ex- perience when they leave home for the first time. The Y. M. C. A. is a powerful agent in helping the boys to learn just Where they are in their spiritual life. It has helped many of the boys who use tobacco to give up the use of the filthy narcotic altogether. Dr. Robert Hall of New York has given the boys two illustrated lectures this year. It is always an inspiration to all of the boys to hear Dr. Hall tell about some of the things the Y. M. C. A. is doing for the young men all over the country. A The influence of our Y. M. C. A. has not been confined to the College alone. Early in the year the boys organized a gospel team. The enthusiasm of this team is shown in its work for Christ. It has aided some of the small, struggling churches in this vicinity. Our boys have shown the people of Oklahoma their interest in the Y. M. C. A. work by send- ing to the State Conference in Tulsa a larger delegation, in proportion to the number of members, than any school in the state. The delegates returned to Bacone with many new ideas, and a larger vision of the work. Thos. Bailey Aldrich said: Build as thou wilt, and as thy light is given, Build as thou wilt, unspoiled by praise or blame, Then at last if what thou hast built shall fall,- Dissolve and vanish,-take thyself no shame. They fail, and they alone, who have not striven. Our Y. W. C. A. this year has been trying to build in spite of praise and blame, striving to help the girls of Saca- jawea Hall to become more intelligent and earnest Christian girls. During the fall term a play, The School Girl, and the Slave Girl, was given by a number of the Y. W. C. A. members. It illustrated the work begun by the mission- areis in China, and carried forward by the Chinese Christian students themselves. During the Winter Term we enjoyed a series of studies in the mission work of the world based on the book, The Child in the Midst . On December 7th, Miss Dabb, the National Secretary 42 THE BACONE CHIEF for Indian Schools, visited us and told us the story of a prince who changed his kingdom from a land of bitterness, gossip, and cruel hate, to a land of happiness and joy, where there was no time for anger , by giving to each, individual within his kingdom a flower to be planted and cared for. Early in the year we sent over 323.00 to the suf- fering Belgians. We have pledged 8510.00 for Home Mis- sions and have already paid our pledge of 310.00 to Foreign Missions. On December 27th, the Young W0men's Christian As- sociation of America met with a great loss in the death of Miss Grace Dodge, who for eight years had been the Presi- dent of the National Board. She was the associationis hu- man resource for wisdom, outlook, peace, joy and courage, and because of the inspiration of her life thousands of men and women, boys and girls of America and the world, have been brought nearer to the Christ life. At the beginning of the new year the active members of the Y. W. C. A. received certificates which will admit them to the privileges of any Y. W. C. A. in America. In each term we have tried to have six devotional meet- ings, three practical talks, and three missionary meetings. We also have a prayer circle which meets on Sunday even- ing, and a meeting for those who can not understand the English language very well. This latter meeting is held on Wednesday evening so that some of our Indian girls may not miss the help and training which those who speak English freely get in the Tuesday night meetings. We believe that the Bacone Y. W. C. A. has meant more to the girls this year then in former years, because they have seemed to feel less difiidence in making the meetings their very own, and in not only giving Verses, but in telling their own thoughts upon the subject, and especially in prayer. Early in the year an enterprising B. Y. P. U. was organ- ized under the leadership of Miss Crouse. The B. Y. P. U. is divided into four groups of about twenty members each. This affords a little good natured rivalry, when a new stu- dent arrives on the hill . The B. Y. P. U. has done much good already, and we expect to get much training from its lessons. The first ten days of February were given to evange- listic services. The teachers and students congratulate them- selves upon being able to secure the services of Rev. Jas. Peden, a prominent minister in eastern Oklahoma, for this occasion. Rev. Peden took his college course in Bacone, and the memories of his student days enabled him to appeal to THE BACONE CHIEF 43 the students as few other ministers could do. Some of the things he taught will undoubtedly live in the hearts and minds of some of the students as long as there is any life within them. When the meeting closed there were only four boys in the school who had not publicly confessed Christ as their personal Savior. During the year thirty-three stu- dents have been received as members of the church . The students have the opportunity of hearing some of the best sermons, since we have preaching service each Sun- day evening. Rev. Sharp recently preached a Wonderful ser- mon upon the second coming of Christ. We believe, as did the founder of Bacone, A Christian school planted in the midst of a Christian people, becomes one of the most powerful agencies in the Work of civiliza- tion. ii .. .

The origin of Music is uncertain as it seems to have existed from the beginning in all countries. We know of in- strumental music from the pictures of musical instruments on the Egyptian obelisks and tombs. The Romans used both stringed and wind instruments. Imagine, if you can, Bacone College without a music department. It would be a lifeless place. But Bacone has its music department and a line one. In no other year has it taken sucha prominent part in regular school work. This year we have two departments in music, the vocal and instrumental. The latter has the advantage, as it has a regular home in the new addition to Sacajawea Hall. With the beginning of this school year vocal music was made compulsory, so each student in and above the sixth grade has to take at least two chorus lessons a week. As some students were farther advanced than others, it became nec- essary for our teacher, Prof. J. Morris James, to organize the chorus into a beginners and an advanced class. These have already furnished some good selections for our Sunday School, and a recital is expected from them some time in the near future. In addition to these classes Prof. James is giving pri- vate lessons to a number of students, who favor us with solos from time to time at our Sunday evening services, and literary societies. We believe that we have some splendid home talent, and we can see that there has been a great im- provement since they began to have their voices trained. THE BACONE CHIEF 45 We also appreciate having a Choctaw male quartette that has sung for us a number of times during the year at the Sunday evening services, and literary societies. We greatly enjoyed their songs at our Hallow'een party. As no great singers or players have come to Muskogee this year, we have been deprived of a pleasure which has been enjoyed in years gone by. However, we hope that next year we shall have the privilege of hearing Caruso as he is expected to visit Muskogee on his way to San Francisco. The instrumental department began the year in its own six new rooms in Sacajawea Hall, with an enrollment of forty pupils, ranging from the first to the fourth grade, Linder the direction of Miss Hamilton, with Miss Whitaker as her assistant. The pupils have made marked improve- ment. The first recital was given in December, and for the second time there were too many to play at one recital, so on Friday afternoon an extra recital was given for those pupils who could not play at the regular recital on Friday evening. The instrumental solos of the music pupils have also added greatly to the literary programs. An instrumental trio composed of piano, violin and cor- net has favored us with two or three good selections which we all enjoyed. Miss Dietz of Muskogee comes to Bacone every Monday morning and gives lessonis to the violin students. This de- partment is small, but the students are doing good work and occasionally we hear from them. About the first of March President Randall secured a Kimball Concert Grand piano for the Chapel, from the Kroh Music Co., of Muskogee. This is a great improvement over the old piano and it will also be an aid to the music depart- ment as the old chapel piano will be placed in one of the prac- tice rooms in Sacajawea Hall. It is the hope of the editor that the Bacone mulsic department may continue to grow next year. l J. Q SOCIAL CLEMA WILEY, Editor. SOCIAL PROGRESS AT BACONE. The first degree of initiation into social life for the year 1914-15 was given the students on September 12th, when they were most hospitably entertained by President and Mrs. Randall. A traveler coming upon the beautifully lighted campus in front of the President's home would have been thrilled with a brilliance which blinded his tired eyes. The mass of students met, were introduced and conversed on that memorable night. The very souls of the students were thrilled as they intermingled, a gay and happy throng, which had come to this school with high aspirations and strong de- termination to thoroughly prepare for whatever duties the uncertain future had in store for them. Teachers were re- garded reverently and were looked upon as the means of suc- cess or failure to be recorded in the college memorandum. As the one who reigned supreme in President Randall's home would have it, we were requested to take our seats under the shade of the friendly elms to enjoy the refresh- ing ices. Then we heard the bell that calls the weary to rest,-a new thing in our experience. Like the flight of a frightened covey of birds the girls hurried to express thanks for the pleasures of the evening, and to bid the host and hostess good-night, then they returned to their nests. Say, girls and boys, what is more exciting than to take the true sportsmen of the College to the banks of the Arkan- sas and feed, them with tiny brown and white bread sand- wiches, sweet pickles, cheese straws, plums and cakes out of neat wicker baskets? Well, our football boys fell to just such good luck on one of the beautiful fall days when the ground was covered with crisp red leaves and the sun's rays came directly through the branches of the trees. To watch those boys consume that luncheon so raven- ously was equal to a three-reel Keystone comedy . There were no twelve baskets full of fragments left to be gathered up either. When the baskets gave evidence of the luncheon having come to a finis , the sand glass poured THE BACONE CHIEF 47 four o'clock, which was a splendid reminder for obedient stu- dents to get back to school. All aboard yelled the conductor to the running boys and girls. Soon they were seated in the car and on their way back to the famous hilltop, where the final of the second de- gree was enacted. ' Hallowe'en came with every nook and corner of Rocke- feller hall haunted. The House of Nights could not have been more possessed with shrieking spirits on that October night. The boyis used this measure to entertain the girls for the evening. At the main entrance an escort took us in charge and led us on a grand march from cellar to garret and from there to the Goblin Den, where we sat down to await the re- maining events of the program. To our great surprise four of the boys made handsome looking darkies and sang a Dixie quartette. It sho wuz line. A cat concert followed, showing how harmoniously such an unlimited number of tones may be blended. A wonderful exhibition of some new species of animals, originated by the genius of the boys was given. After this the witches told our fortunes. Eatables in keeping with the occasion were served, and favors given to each one present. The spirits of HalloWe'en had never seemed more alert or active. We went to bed only to dream weird dreams of the third degree of social life at Bacone. In return for the kindness shown by the boys, Mother Morford consented that the girls give them a reception. Now I do wish that you could have seen those girls when they came into Sacajawea Hall, dressed to a perfect dream. Flitting fairies are not in it. During the first part of the evening the boys conducted an Ichabod's School . Their wit and humor kept the crowd almost in convulsions. A play, The Burglar Alarm, given by the girls made quite a hit. Several readings and songs were rendered by them also. Refinement and culture pervaded the atmosphere throughout the evening. All thought it was the best yet . No degree in Bacone social life before, Ever attained the success won by number four. YTRAP DRAWKCAB. CThe Fifth Degreej Backward turn backward, O, time in your flight, and give me a good time just for tonight. Shouted the girls while they descended the stairs to join in the fun of a backward party given in honor of four girls' 48 TI-IE BACONE CHIEF birthdays. Dressed backwards? Well, I should say, the grandest of ties, brooches and the daintiest of lavallieres adorned the backs. Skirts were fastened in front, middy blouse collars in front, and shoes on the wrong feet. My! They certainly were a complex looking set. The honorees were requested to perform stunts backwards. After some exciting games we drank a hot chocolate to set us going right with the world, and went oif to islumberland. YE SYXTH DEGREE.

BANQUET. The very word banquet carries you to ye olden time when you sat down and enjoyed- a big feed . Celestial cookeries and toasts. It was with sadness that the Juniors carried the Seniors to such heights, knowing that they would never return again. Blue and gold colors made unique decorations upon the snowy white linens. The table was laid for twenty. Four Sumptuous courses were served. President Randall pre- sided as Master of Toasts . His talk on Sunshine was beautiful, and he fittingly applied it to the students. The welcome address by John Murphy, so carefully pre- pared, almost brought tears to the Seniors' eyes. Gus Chou- teau gave the Response expressing the appreciation of the class for the hospitality of the evening and the splendid comradeaship given to them by the Juniors during their last year. Ruth Gilbert gave a very creditable talk on What I think of a Bacone Boy . James Jones talked on What I think of a Bacone Girl . The class prophecy was read by the prophetess, Ida Tiger. THE BACONE CHIEF 49 As the old saying goes, The last is always the best , held good at the banquet when Mrs Randall talked on In- terests of Education . . For half an hour or so there was much competition be- tween the two classes in class yells and songs. Thus ended the golden seventh degree in the social life of Bacone, and still there's more to follow for all eyes are turned toward the annual May-day picnic, but it will take a whole volume to give an account of it so we will leave its history to be recorded by future Baconians.

Five years ago when the present Superintendent came to Bacone to take up the work, the only athletics that were indulged in were football, baseball, and tennis. The material was good, perhaps better than we have now, but there was no one to direct the sports, with the re- sult that those who wished to take part were old hands, or some green fellows who indulged to see how they came out. The boys thought the game of football very dangerous. Now, besides these, we have basketball, soccer football and all kinds of track and field athletics. There is keen competition in all these departments, to make the team. FOOTBALL. Football is at the present time the most popular sport, and is emphasized more by the students than any other form of athletics. The football team was weakened somewhat this year, for several of the best men graudated and their places were left open for some less skilled player to fill. The team opened the iseason with credit by beating Wagoner High School, 32 to 0. They also closed the season with credit by beating the Aggies from Warner, 22 to O. Nuf sed , do not mention the intervening games, they were all played with credit, too, but the credit of the score went to the other fellows. The football team held its annual election and Simon Hancock was elected manager and Horace Holland elected as captain of the team. We hope that our manager will get up another good schedule for next fall. BASKETBALL. ' After football came basketball which had not in pre- vious years been played by the boys. Last year the girls played a while but no match games were scheduled. This 52 THE BACONE CHIEF year the boys played two games in which they won one, and lost the other. We have no gymnasium so we played in the open air. We hope that in the near future we may have a gymnasium where the boys can develop their bodies. This is very needful at this school. SOCCER FOOTBALL. This winter soccer football was introduced as a new form of sport for the boys. Although the game was new it was played with much enthusiasm. There was only one match game played which was won by Bacone, the score being 2 to 1. A The boys showed their ability to play, although proper training was lacking. BASEBALL. The baseball team has been organized and the candi- dates for the team have worked hard for their places. We have three pitchers whom we expect to be the means of win- ning many victories. The team is made up of Indian boys. Last year the team played several games with credit. Two games were played with Northeastern State Normal, which were lost, the score being in the first 4 to 3 and the second was 6 to 5. Also two games were played with the Muskogee Business College with the result that both games were won with ease. Wagoner High School also played four or five innings with us but as the weather was bad the game was called off, although the game was in our favor. TRACK. We cannot afford to write these .sketches without men- tioning our track work and field events. In the three years that this form of sport has been in the school, it has shown decided improvement, especially in the field events. The boys, who, four years ago did not know what a shot or a discus was, can at the present time throw the discus or put the shot as far as an average high school weight man. On April 4 there was a dual meet between McAlester High School and Bacone and on April 11, 1914, a dual track- meet was held between Muskogee High School and Bacone. Both' of our opponents out-pointed us, but it happened that both of the teams were the best track teams in the eastern part of the state, so we were not discouraged. We have an- other dual track-meet scheduled for the 23rd day of April, 1915. We have some men who are hard to beat in field THE BACONE CHIEF 53 events, also in track, so we expect to out-point the McA1es- ter High School this year. At the close of each school year we have had meets of our own in which they compete for prizes given by the mer- chants of Muskogee. In this meet the boys showed up bet- ter than at any other time. There were better results given the last day than at any other time. In the runs the time was much better, and in the field events the boys showed what they were made of, and what they could do. Several of our best men are on the baseball team and yet they are not forgetting their need of practice. Some play ball until supper time, and while the rest of us are eating supper, they practice on the track. This is very encouraging to us. The following boys were awarded B's last year for track and field events: Allen Holmes, , Horace Holland, Jesse Tiger, Ralph Walkingstick, William S. James, Gilbert Ferguson.

Have pity we pray, for our life of care, You never can know what Sophoniores must bear, They call us soft heads, and they say we are Sa.ssy - That Juniors and Seniors are all that are Classy, As sure as the day we shall rise to fame, They all will rejoice in the SophoInore's name. Think not that the ghost of all trouble and strife, Will follow the Sophomores all of their life, Not far in the future we're destined to rise, The dawn of our day is now tinting the skies. No student will fail, who is led by a star, For strength will be given though the journey be far. Then upward and onward our race will be run, Still cheering each other till victory be won. The Sophomores today, with banner unfurled, Tomorrow may win, and rule all the world. Three cheers for our banner, Oh! long may it wave O'er homes of the fair, And hearts of the brave.

I ani sitting in the class room, Leading from the Eastern hall-way Pondering the next translation, When the sounds that break upon me Almost make me think l'm traveling With Aeneas down in Hades. What is it? Are we on fire? Lo! the outside door is opened With a creaking and a squeaking, But before it closes, crashing, Comes the thunder of a slamming Of the door into the office. Tense I wait, not disappointed, For I scarce renew 1ny breathing When the crash comes I expected, And the out side door is banged to. I have heard the old time saying, Speech is silver, silence is golden, Ah! my nerve racked soul gives assent, Silence would indeed be golden, Far more precious than all rubies, When you're straining every nerve cell Just to make a good translation. Who is it that does that slamming, Just two hours before dinner? Can it be the gentle owner Of that room across the hall way From the room outside the oiiioe! Miss Morford to Miss Eckert Cafter the latter had gone to Edward Baxter Perry recitall.- Was it good ? Miss Eckert- Yes, I could have hugged him for saying 'Hoss'. hogs, Mister John Murphy- How much do you charge for Weighing ?!7 Weighmaster- Oh, just get on, I'll weigh you for noth- ing. THE BACONE CHIEF 59 Doctor- You'll be all right in a day or so. It's nothing but a slight cold. Prof. Steel- I was kind of hoping it was malaria. Doc- tor, I've got a lot of quinine, and I hate to see it go to waste. DINING-ROOM WARNING. No gentleman comes to the breakfast table without his collar and tie, and with his shoes unbuttoned. John Schenk- Say, Murphy, was one of your shirts starched and ironed very nicely last week ? John Murphy- Yes. Why ? John Schenk- I heard Anna Carey spent an hour iron- ing me a starched shirt, but I never did iind it. John M.- I am afraid she got the wrong one, because one of mine was starched and ironed very nicely, and I am saving it to wear to the Y. M. C. A. Conference which is to be held in Tulsa. QThe supper bell was ringing, whereupon Cupid began to howl mournfully.J Student- What on earth are you howling for? You don't have to eat beans. O little chigger, Which is no bigger Than the point of a little pin, But the bump it raises Itches like blazefs, And that's where the rub comes in. l DOMESTIC CIE CE The best things are nearest, Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things of life!! Cookery is a noble art. It will add years to any person's life, and even deserves the serious attention of masculine minds. This being true, there is not a boy or girl in the land whose education would not be more complete if they had the proper amount of instruction in simple home cooking. There are few of us who, if we gave it the attention it de- serves, could not master with great ease, the rudiments of an art, that is one of the oldest arts of the world. The classes in cooking meet with Miss Morford in one of the Domestic Science rooms in the new addition to Saca- jawea Hall. This room has been newly equipped for the cooking classes, and is in many ways better than the old room. It is well lighted and ventilated. The first year class meets two periods a week, Tuesday and Friday. They study fundamental principles: Bever- ages, vegetables, cereals, meats, simple mixtures, flour mix- tures and cakes and other sweets. The second year class also meets two periods a week- Wednesday and Friday. This class learns the application of principles and some new ones: Preservation of fruits, canning and sterilizing, meat and meat soups, bread, eggs, salads, deserts, cookies, doughnuts and cakes. At the close of the second year, the class gives a dinner to some of the members of the faculty and some of their special friends, in which they show their ability as cooks. Last year President Randall expressed himself as well pleased with the dinner, and willing to recommend the girls to any one looking for good cooks. We are hoping that both classes will not forget what they have learned in the kitchen, but will put it into prac- tical use in the near future. The sewing classes meet with Mrs. Garner in the sew- ing room adjoining the kitchen. This new room is also a great improvement over the THE BACONE CHIEF 61 sewing room of last year. It is always warm, comfortable and cheerful, and is fitted with a good Singer sewing ma- chine, sewing tables and other necessary things for work. The first year class meets three periods a week. They learn the proper uses of diferent stitches and seams: hem- stitching, darning, tatting, Crocheting, etc. The second year class also meets three periods a week for the purpose of cutting, fitting, and finishing garments. Each member is required to finish two garments every term, one of which is a dress. While the classes are not very large, they both take deep interest and have been doing creditable work. The girls are always glad when Sewing Period comes. IVA L. MOSIER, '17. MANUAL TRAINING This year, the two classes in this department were so small that, though in previous years they met separately, they now meet together. The boys are doing very good work, the lack of quantity being made up in quality. There have been five small individual library tables made, and two of them sold for good prices. A writing desk is being finished for one of the professors. Foot-stools, book-shelves and hall trees abound in the shop. Everything is made by hand. The boys make the articles alone, the teacher putting in a hand only when a boy gets stuck . The boys usually make only the articles that they them- selves have need of. Nothing but the elements of mechanical drawing is taught, and lessons in simple wood work are given. Every- thing is intended for a practical preparation for the needs of the future in the use and care of tools, and in construction of things needed on the farm, or about the house. GEORGE G.
