What lias it meant to you? Has it been a glimpse of color that remiiuled you of so many credits in Science, so many in Lan- guage, or so many in Art? Or has it hi ' i ' n a token of some- thing sacred and high that has hicn a beautiful part in your life? Has it bii n a sudden glow to your heart, a sudden light to your eye, a sudden feeling of love and companionship with tliose who have toiU ' d beside you, «hose struggles and triumphs have been yours, when you all wire striving toward a high ideal, and when you were all trynig to place beautiful and shapely blocks in your house of life? It ought to mean to you that you are a unit in a whole that is made up of youthful human-life and that is marching bravely forwai ' d. It ought to be an inspii ' at ion to vou as the battle-flag to the soldlir. In after years, when you see by chance the old colors, they will give you a thrill that is as sweet and deep as youth. If you have felt the geiun ' ne s])irit and lived uj) to it, it will come back to you in after years as rich as the wine of life. This is as truly a paii of your life as any tim ' that has l)een or will i)e. (iive it the best that is in you. It is worthy of it, and unless you do, you are not worthy of it.

A ItBtt to 3m 3apau One stormy niglit during hv fall term, the good ship Pleasure bore as her passengers the Idealists, who were journeying afar to the quaint little countr} ' of Japan where they were to be received and entertained by their sehoolniates, the Arcadians. After days of squally weather, Japan was reached, and the Idealists were met and usliered into a Japanese home of no mean ])roportions. Here Lady Wistaria and her sister, Lady Peachblossom, smiled winsomely, and Lady Blue Water-Lily looked archly from out ahnond-shaped eyes while she flirted from behind her fan with ] Ir. Burns, a distinguished American guest. The guests roamed at will through the a])artnients, and were conducted into a garden where vnider the shadows of a wistaria-laden pagoda, they sipped punch and listened to the weirdly beautiful strains of Eastern music, furnished by the band. There under the boughs of the cherry tree, the Japanese ladies served their guests as they sat on mats and cushions, with ices as cold as tlie snows that lie on Mt. Trigigama ' s breast, and with cakes as delicately tinted as the rose leaves of their garden. As the clock sti ' uck .lu (ten), tlu ' last Sayonaras wi ' ri ' said, and the guests bade farewell to Ja[)an. They who had bei ' ii guests became so interested in tlu ' pictures(|ueness of this island om ' i the sea, that shortly after this Ihev presented the .Iapan« ' se opera, " Lady O ' San-u-San. " 0h SIbFaltBta Somewhere, at sonietiiiie, and somehow in the annals of dcai old L. S. X., was discovered a group of individuals known under the name of Idealists. Idealists! what a great name for such a few unimportant Normal students! AnW jet, in the course of our existence, we learn that little things often become big things. Still, even this was an aspiration too high for the Idealists, for alas! great numbers was not their destiny. So, out in the great sea of learning these few set sail, all courageous and hopeful, with merel} ' a handful of sailors to fight the battles and reap the benefits of an educational voyage. Weak was the ship, scant was the ammunition, over])owering was the tempest, but humbly and bravely did our crew face the danger. And just as in every other voyage in the world, there were moments of pleasure and moments of pain: the former, few in number, perhaps, but of indelible varietv to the minds of men; the latter, many and difficult to overcome, yet making wonderful heights attainable. Consequently, after overcoming many dangers and fortify- ing themselves Avith this wonderful experience, our brave little crew reached the light-house and awoke one morning to find themselves sailing in the Gulf of Trials (Practice-teaching). These were wonderful waters, indeed, but treacher- ous at times, for the wind occasionally blew quite fiercel} ' . Staunch and true, still was each member of our crew and when at last we sailed from the Gulf of Trials to the beautiful, nmch spoken of, long-desired Lake Hope (Eleventh Term), our hearts were indeed gladdened. Ah, yes! gladdened, although the danger wa not entirely ])assed. for were wc not still traveling on water. ' Fortunateh ' , grit and determination sailid with us, and these friends, accomjjanied by little Miss Gray Matter, seldom fail to meet success. Here again we battkd, but with lighter hearts this time, and finally awoke one morning to find ourselves safely and surely on shore! " Names posted! " Ah! Gentle Readers, who of you know the feeling of a crew standing on solid earth again after being with the mighty waters for months. Alas! None l)ettii- than the sailor iiimsclf, ( Noi-mal (iiaduate). I am sure. Ilowevei ' , the sinsation is a mighty one and a feeling much to be desirid; for a voyage such as this turns a leaf in the book of life which may l)e read fai ' more pleasantiv in after years. Remember, s.-iilors, the sea is large and the (iulf of Trials rough, but sailing on the Lake Hope is the most uondi iful thing in the world. So prepare yourself and M ' t sail, (iratifying. indeed, is the arrival in |K)rt. " Thou, too, sail on. Oh Shi|) of Stale! " Now, gentle readers, we trust that our little voyage may be a beacon to your pathway, and that the Idealists may be remembered as having hrjprd on life ' s journev. ( " vuii. Cookk.

From my golden beams flows light that streams Like the light-house out at sea, And the light that shines through shadowy pines Makes the Normal home for thee. Those who made and those who gave Me to the Normal hill Will never forget nor ever regret Their grateful deed and will. I light the way for all those who stay, From shades of dusk till dawn ; For those wlio ])asse(l, tliey may travel fast; But Alma Mater ' s lawn Will hold the sign of their student line. That is shedding home-like ehcer ; And glim ' ring light put darkness to flight For many a night and year. Aye, I wait near Normal gate, A monument of fame ! For on my breast, in marble impressed, I bear a glorious name! Ruth Cat.dwf.t.t, IP? 1 i-A, ' ' mat ir ' iS L iSSii " - = rtA ®I| Arraitans ' ar itfi Beware, oh Navigators, of what you })hint in your gardens ! Take this advice from an Arcadian, who, one evening while breal ing the top crust on her rows, lieard the following conversation : Mr. Bateman: " So you want to see the Arcadians ' gardens, Mr. Roy. ' ' Now, as we pass along, just look on each stake and you will see to whom each garden belongs. That is the great beauty of systematic organization. " Mr. R03 ' : " Oh, Bateman, don ' t 3 ' ou suppose that after I have taught these young people School Administration that I know their characteristics well enough to pick out each one ' s garden. ' ' Remember that truth, ' By their fruits vou shall know them ' . ' ' Let me tell you the owner of each garden as we come to them. Now, this cabbage on our right belongs to Joe Farrar. Did you ever see such a big head. ' ' But (feeling the cabbage) there is something in it. Now, look at those red-top beets. They are the first thing that I saw as I came along. But they, like their owner. Miss Stuckey, are well worth while. " Mr. Bateman: " Mr. Roy, I hate for you to see this next garden. I simply couldn ' t get the young lady to make her rows straight. Why, they start out about three feet wide and gradually get smaller until the} ' fairly approach zero as a limit. " Mr. Roy: " Now, that just shows how little appreciation you have of child ' s nature. I would give Miss Wilson T plus ' on that garden, for she is just making a practical application of what Mr. Hedges taught her of the Theory of Limits in Calculus. " Mr. Bateman: " Perhaps you are right, IMr. Roy, but here is what I call a ' P plus ' garden. Look at this corn. Why the ears are so big that they fairly stick out on each side. " Mr. Roy : " Yes, that is good corn. Greneaux is splendid in that line. His corn is quite characteristic of him in its growth, too. " Mr. Bateman: " Here is a bed of parsnips. Now, that shows up well. They belong to Miss Nick. You know parsnips is a vegetable very few people like until they are well acquainted with it, but having known it become very fond of it. Now, so many people have the idea that lettuce can not be grown in winter. Just look at this ! Did you ever see any look fresher and greener. " Mr. Roy: " That is fresh and green. Is that Miss Kennon ' s garden. " Mr. Bateman : " Oh, no. That belongs to a member of the One B Agricul- ture Class. It was so fresh and green I could not keep from showing it to you. How do vou like these i)ep])ers.? I am going to tell you the owner, for you n never would guess. I did not know myself until one day in my class, this young- lady — Miss Reaves — was as fiery as these plants of hers. " Mr. Rov: " Is that so. ' ' I thought I heard one of the girls say the other da} ' that you had })lanted the pe])pers yourself. ]Miss Reaves is all right, though. " Mr. Bateman : " Here is a good vegetable, tomatoes, but they have not strength enough to hold u]) their own weight. Strange that Mr. Kelso should have chosen such a vegetable ! " Mr. Roy: " Oh, here are some potatoes, a vegetable which unlike others is always ready for you when you call upon it. I know that nmst be Miss I.etitia Petrie ' s garden. Am I right. ' ' " Mr. Bateman: " Ves. This is tlie last of the gardens, Mr. Roy. How do you like them. ' ' " Mr. Roy: " Well, Mr. Bateman, 1 tliink the Arcadians gardens are fine. There is such a variety, and you know that variety is the spice of life. One thing I like especially is that there is not a blade of cocoa to be seen anywhere. That, I believe, is the worst enemy they could have. Their harvest will be good, too, for are we not told, ' As we sow, so shall we reap ' . ' ' " DouoTHV Petrik.

Mr. Williamson considei ' s that we abound in knowli ' dgi ' it we can give a faultless definition of the earth ' s crust. Ml " . Hedges believes that knowledge does not extend beyond the ordinary ability to conquer such eas - problems in Advanced Arithmetic as: " Find the area of the earth without knowing its dimensions. " Mr. Fournet does not dioose to assume that it takes an unusually brilliant power of reasoning to solve impossible ])roblems in Physics. Mrs. McVoy declares that we can nevei- attain knowledge until we can feel ourselves living the life of each writer of classic literature, even though we study a difl ' erent author at each English period of the week. Mr. Martin considers that a group of people are thoioughl v tducated if they can sing " ])ianissimos " and " fortissimos " to perfection. Miss Hart asks for no more knowledge than is necessary to conjugate any verb of the third conjugation, and translate at sight any of Daudet ' s novels. Mr. Stopher thinks that we are not entitled to a diploma until we can " o out into the state and lead an (t jifnopriate song on any occasion. Mr. St. Amant ' s ideal of a jjcrson of knowledge is one who can see both sides of any question, who believes in the honor system and the single tax, end can I ' ccogni .e the taults in his own country. Mr. VVhisenhunt thinks that knowledge is emiiodied in the ability to enu- merate and explain, discuss and illustrate all jjhasi ' s of any ja ' dagogical topic he may extract from Ins little note i)()ok. Mr. Davis thinks that all knowledge is comprehended between the pages of Hessler and Smith ' s l ' ' .lements of Chemistry, and the four walls of the L. S. N. laboratory.

On their a])proachiiig nearer, I was astonished to (ind that it was not a flock of birds as I had supposed, but a large number of aeroplanes wliich vcr - setting out on a long journey. One of the Aeronauts directed his machine towards me, and alighted u])on tlie top galler - of my observatory, while the others circled round and roimd above us. The Aeronaut who had alightec! addressed me, asking if 1 would care to Join liim and his comjianions in the quest of the Normal Diploma. He alone had no companion in liis airship. Upon inquiring the nature of tlie flight, I ascertained tliat it would be a long one, full of dangers and ti-ials, l)ul iliai a ricli reward woidd be olitained at the close of the journey. Here was a rare opportunity for an adventure; so l)oldly I accepted the strange friend ' s offer, and was soon seated beside him in his aerojilane. With a great buzzing and whirring we were off, followed l)y the other macliines which were hovering around. We had not gone far before 1 was con inccd tliat this was not going to lie so much an adventure as the overcoming of difficult tasks. In the beginning we journeyed very peacefully, but it was not long before we discovered tiiat lliere were dreadful animals of the air as well as of the land and sea. The most terrible we had to encounter was one very closely akin to the zebra of the land, the name of which was Al-gebra. He was striped like a zebra but with white stripes which resembled figures such as X, Y, Z, etc. A herd of these .Vl-gebras started toward us and a terrible combat ensued. After a hard struggle, we conquered them and con- timied our flight, only to encounter otlicr air monsters. ' Jhese monsters were smaller but fiercer than the Al-gebras. They resembled the Centaurs in Greek Mythology, having tlii ' arms and head of man and the body of a horse. On inquir- ing of one of their number, wc obtained the information that these strange animals were the I ' hysicseans, and that the Aerial country that we were in was Physicsea. These Physicseans were very busy peojilc, but ,iot so engrossed in their own affairs that tluy were not hostile to strangers. They drew great weights from the earth liy means of icxi ' rs, and, in order to store their most perishable foods away, several of tiicm were engaged ni finding the licat of fusion of ice. Their king, Archimedes, was so absorbed in an experiment tliat be did not glance at us in tlu ' outer courts of his i)alace. A sentinel curth dismissed ns from the palace, saying that his king was solving a great jiroblem foi- the ])eople of the earth, and could not be a])- ])roaclicd. Being brave we attempted to force our way through the jjalace of Physicsea, and an awful liattle followed this indiscreet act. Several of tlic Aeronauts were left beliiiid, woinidcd, but none the less determined to jiass through the ])ala c as soon as they were able to continue the journey. I-ater we came to a coi.ntry that was covered with strange figures, which resembled I ' igyptian hieroglypliics, magnified a thousand times. I ' .xerywhcrc we bunqied against such (igures as triangles, ciri ' les, ))arallelograms, and rectangles. We iiad gi ' eat difliculty not only in steering, but in appeasing the insulted inhabitants, when anyone .iskcd an explanation of l one of lliesc lifrnrc , (ir ili pla ' cd oiic di ' lliciu.

The odor of escapinjr gases, such as hy- drogen, sulphide and cholorine was almost unl)earal)Ie. Our aerojilaiu ' had been damaged also and we, like many others fell to the earth. Several . cronauts were injured, but all of them became wiser after tliis failure, and with more determination and better equipment, they set out to cross the iiioiinlain. However, this break caused several others, so after this last calamitous adventure, wc all decided to separate and seek nir goal through diverse paths. Before long a number of groiqis was organized. None nt liack to the already visited lands, but all sought new otu ' s. One set out for the land of Indiistria. aiu)ther to La Patrie Francois, while we went to visit the celebrated art galleries.

After a journey of nine months we came to the Island of Cyclops (Fourth Term). There we soon encountered the giant Polyphemus in his cave (Miss Messerschmldt in her office), as a consequence of which many of us perished. Those of us who escajied with our lives sought the aid of AEOLUS (Hard Study), who bound up the Evil Winds (Pleasure and Distractions), and sent us on our way, promising a safe voyage. When we were under full sail, Sleep (Temptation) overcame us, the Evil Winds were loosened, and bore us again into evil tide. We arrived at the land of Laestrygons (Mr. Stopher, Dominants, Sub- Dominants, Mediants, and so on), and lost more of our crew. Next we encountered Circe in her enchanted castle (Mr. Bateman in the garden). There we met his farmer victims (plantaphis, cabbage butterflies, and many others), and would ourselves have been transformed had we not possessed the magic herb (Kerosene emulsion and Paris Green), with which to defy his ])ower. Wluii he saw that we were souls against which there could be no enchantment, he feasted us on rare food and sweet wines (onions, radishes, and so on), and disclosed to us tin- secret of the safe vovage, launching us again on the sea (Fifth Term). Soon we sighted Scylla (Mr. Hedges), a dreadful monster of the sea, with six heads (solid geometry, advanced arithmetic, advanced algebra, trigonom- etry, analytics and calculus), each of which thnatined to divour us. Then Charybdis (Mr. Davi.s) came into view. Three months did this inoiistcr seek to ui]) us douii, l)ul cacii tuiU ' we escaped froiii lii clutclus und rowed safely past. Soon wo came to tlie Island of THE SIRENS (Mr. Winstead and the Latin Department). And when we were so near the shore that the shouts of a man could be heard therefrom, the sirens perceived our ships and began to sing. This was their song: " Hither, Ulysseans, come and join our force; We will teach you everything about the Latin Course, You shall go on with us ; we shall travel far, But remember this, our motto, ' HITCH YOUR WAGON TO A STAR. ' " But we filled our ears and sped past them, lest we be enchanted and come not to Ithaca. So we passed unharmed. For three weeks we continued to float on in safety, and, during the fourth, the gods bore us in sight of the Island of Cyclops (Sixth Term), where we W shall drop our anchor soon.

P Itp Bay Monday evening, and all of tlie pupils of the Louisiana State Norinal sit on the edge of their chairs, waiting for tlie hist gong to sound before the} ' all crowd around their class advisers, waiting for those fateful slips. Slips, now you must know, are little pieces of white jnxper, containing your name and classification and on them are written, at the the end of each month, all the subjects in which 3 ' ou have " flunked. " Hence, the ambition of all to " pass clean " ; that is, to obtain a perfectly clean slip. The bell rings and there is a mighty u})roar, as about six hundred students work their way to the appointed rooms in the Main Hall. One goes this way; another, just the o})posite. Here a girl stops her chum to whisper something in her ear; another tries to reach the fruit shoj) to buy a " Hershey, " to help keep back the tears Avhen the sli])s are handed out. There go several members of the 2A Class! Let us follow them and see the different ones as they receive their slips. There are so many that it is imjjossible to mention them all, but just watch a few as (hey go by. Mr. Hedges is standing at the desk calling out the names. " Margaret Pickels, " he drones, and a little girl walks up with a self-satisfied look on her pleasant face. She takes her clean slip and smiles as much as to say, " No sur- prise. I kiinc that I had ' passed clian. " " Next, ALitt IJuatt, the favorite of the class, marches u[) smiling, but he sobers down a tiny bit when he sees " Singing " on his slij). But his sinuiy disposition is not to be soured and he walks off humming, " do, sol, la, sol, " while Mr. Hedges calls out, " Mona de Rouen, " and a lively brunette goes forward, boasting of the number of sub- jects .she has failed in. But when she sees " (leometry " her faci- clouds as she exclaims, " Well, Mr. Fournet can ' Hunk ' mi ' if lie ])leases, but I know as nuich as Julia Bains. Anyway, there is a new man coming to teach us geonutrv, and I will make a hit. " " Ilowena Nelf ! " is the next in order, and " our little French chum " walks up and is handed a slip with a big " Francais 2. " scrawled across the top of it. Watc h her face ! Her eyes open wide and she looks as thougli the most impossible thing has happened. " Well, Miss Hart has ' flunked ' me in French and I just knew she would. I never will learn how to give the ' Passe ' Anteneur ' if I take French six more terms. I wish that I had taken agri- culture ! " (That last wish is often on the lips of all the Latin and French students as they see Mr. Bateman ' s Agriculture Class tr;unj)iiig out to the garden laughing and talking.) We all turn around as a wee little voice pops up, saying, " I bet you a Hershey that Mr. Sto})her does not ' flunk ' me in singing. I do think he is the dearest man. " And we sec Kathcrine Breazeale and Louise Hodges coming in, late as usual, but never missing anything. And so they pass on one by one, some with moist eyes ; others with bright smiles. But let us sympathize with them all, as there are weeping days as well as sunshiny days for us all here at the Normal. Hilda Moody. WINTER CLASS OF 1915-16 CLASS OFFICERS U. H.

With our PRESIDENT, ALFORD, who is tall enough to sit in his chair and rap tlic top of the house with his CRANIUINI, ORDER is no object. One of our greatest factors or delights is when we listen to the marvelous records kept by the serious GAIDRY. We do not believe that there has been a person since the dawn of the world that could call a roll louder, read the minutes in a more musical tone, or be more fitted for this calling than SHE. Yet there is our EDITOR, HARPER, whose name, we ai ' e sure, will go down in history as an equal of THOMAS JEFFERSON, when it comes to the mastery of writing. Surely HORACE GREELEY never wrote such EDITORIALS asihe writes. They are as instructive to the intellect as WYLIE ' S methods of handling the TREASURE are to the BANKING WORLD. But, oh, yo ritic! Whom did you model your criticisms after — Pope, Macaulay, or Lanier. How do you manage to think of such classic criticisms with so much ease. Your ability is to be envied and held out as an ideal to posterity. In both favorable ancl unfavorable criticisms " THOU ART A GENIUS. " But your ability is matched by the GREAT PARLIAMENTARIAN, BAYNE. We just wonder if the parliamentary work is enforced as rigidly in the HOUSE OF LORDS as it is in the M. C. C. by his IRON HAND. Again we are made to wonder why the members of the Program Committee have so many wrinkles in their fore- heads, bvit when we stop to consider the wonderfulness of their work and the skiiruliuss with which they handle Iheii- work, we are convinced thai i L•. SHOWS and Misses TALLY and KKiCiS mighl be chosen lo outline the program for the U. S. Senate, if the counhy bul knew of the abilily of this deliberative TRIO. ' I ' hen our mcnibcrs arc possessed of as gri ' ul talent as our odicers. If wi ' want our inmost beings Ihrilled with ORATORY, we have bul to call on BLAXCHARD, our OKATOK, for iiuKid Iio is tlu " only one. If DEMOS- THEN ES liad possessed the elo(iuence of this nmn, lie would liave kept ATHENS from entering into a TREATY with OLYXTHUS. If we desire a Oeal Solo, our Soloist, LIZZIE, is ready to ])our forth as melodious liar- monies as ever fell upon the ears of man: or if it be a Piano Solo, ELMA paws on the ivory with as iiiueh agility as the eat uses in pulling the ehestnuts from tile fire for the monkey. But when we desire one of our members to visit tlu- MYSTERIOUS HAUNTS of the DEBATER ' S (iOl) and bring forth an argument it would take DANIEL WEBSTER to refute, we eall on FARRAR. TIkmi, if any of us get weary, we have liut to look around at HARNEY ' S S-M-I-L-E-S and be refreshed. These wondrous S-M-I-L-E-S are to us as the sun ' s rays arc to the earth. Now, friends, if you are not eonviiiced that the ]M. C. C. is the best SOCIETY on NORMAL HH-L, just ask the E. L. S. and the S. A. K. for facts about theirs; and, if tliev are better, then we submit.

Toward the end of the fall term of 1913 the students in the Normal follow- ing the Social Science course met together and organized a cluh. In several business meetings the club was sufficiently well organized for the election of offi- cers ; a constitution and by-laws were drawn up and adopted a regular time for meeting was decided upon and the club became an active force. The name adopted by the club is " Contemporary Life Club, " its motto, " Behold Progress ! " its colors, emerald and white, and its official publication " Current Sauce. " This club is composed of students taking the Social Science course, and its purposes are manifold. It aims at the development of those (jualities in its members which will make them fit leaders of the youth whom they will instruct, and cause them to take an attitude of intelligent interest in the vital questions of the world, so that they may be leaders in every movement that makes for prog- ress and good. It aims at helping each of its members to a full and a})precia- tive understanding of all the past and present ])r()gress, and the 2)ro])er rela- tions between the two ; to be in sym})athy with the vast, restless, pulsing, for- ward movement of the whole world ; to reverence the great ])urpose that has swung through all the ages in the history of mankind ; to live fully and con- sciously in the full and wonderful life of our own times ; to be aggressively active for good. It aims at suj)porting everything in the Normal that is good and desirable; to help as })o verfully as may be in its forward ste])s ; to interest more people in the Normal and to keep them informed of its workings; to be as useful as possible and to laugh when the world gets the broad grin. Our interests are as broad and long as the world and time; and our energies ought to make anything possible to us. We hope for a great future, not bounded and limited by the conventions and j)rece(lents which often hamper literary societies and the like, but as possible of growth, develo{)ment and the ])ursuit of real issues as human society is. We have begun successfully. It has been made possible through the aid of our honorary member. Dr. St. Aniant, and the energy and effort of the members to begin the j)ublication of our paper thus early. Beside several programs of unusual worth we have been fortunate in having an address by Mr. Breazeale on the Civil Code of Louisiana. We shall have the benefit in future of ■hearing from other authorities on subjects of state-wide and nation-wide inter- est. We have very little past, but we have a future. Srrrrbnmtr (Elnb OFFICERS.

" •THE KITCHEN ANGELS. ■LAKE VIEW. AjjnatbBln nf f raij r Tlie Apostlcship of Prayer, sometimes called the League of the Sacred Heart, is one of the oldest organizations in the Catholic Church. In the Fall of 1 {)()(), for the benefit of the young ladies of the club and the teachers of the Catholic faith, a league was organized at the Xorinal. The purpose of this organization is to aid the needy and suffering, and to encourage its members to lead better Christian lives. Kach member is taxed a very small fee each term. This money is used in subscribing for three of the best Catholic magazines. Also freeiuently dona- tions are made to the Lepcis " Home and other charitabh ' oi ' ganizations. Heguhir meetings of the League are lield every Sunday afternoon, at whicli |)rograms are rendered, consisting of prayers, spiritual readings, recita- tions, vocal, and instrumental nuisic. Rev. Father Piega ' , pastor of Natchi- toches, is a fre(}uent visitoi- at these meeting.s. His visits are always a source of great |)leasure and enc-ouragement. ' I ' he influence of the lA-ague is three-fold: the girls of the Catholic faith ari ' brought into closer union both socially and religiously at these Sunday after- noon meetings; the ()pi)ortunity of helping others, a source of unfailing good, is oH ' en-d every girl; and, greati ' st of all, the (juiet half-hour spent in praver, thanksgiving, and religious thought strengthens i;u ' h memlKr in the practice of a Christian life.

A. was organized in the Loui. siana State Normal in the spring of 1911. Its purpose is to ))roMiotc spiritual, intellectual, and ])hvsieal development in the school. At the regular meetings held on Sunday evenings, the members are brought closer together by their songs and prayers. A helpful talk is usually given by some member of the faculty or by some other person interested in Christian work. The Association has a beautiful, large reading-room in East Hall, which does a great deal to foster the social and intellectual side of school life. This room is open to the members every day after school and on Saturday. Here a tea is given to the faculty and members of the Association every few weeks. On Hallowe ' en night the Association had a rally and invited the Y. M. C. A. Plans are now being made for a lawn party. A j)iano, which has been ordered, will add much to the attractiveness of the reading-room. During school hours it will be rented out to the nmsic pupils. Several months ago the Association purchased a sewing machine, which is rented to the club girls for ten cents per hour. A walking club called the " Y. W. C. A. Hikers " has been organized. I verv Sunday afternoon, when the weather permits, the " Hikers " go for a walk in the country with Mr. Williamson. A large numl)er of girls are always ready for this weekly stroll, for the scenery around Natchitoches is beautiful, and Mr. Williamson is an interpreter of Nature and a charming story-teller. The Association is visited once a year by the Field Secretary. This year Miss Frances Y. Snn ' th, from St. Louis, was here. She gave several inspiring talks to the students and created an increased interest in the work. oung MtnB (ShrtBttau ABunnattnn i; OFFICERS. r Sr.M.MKu Tkiim, 191Ji Presidt ' iit ( ' . I .

Attempts made to establish a permanent organization of any kind are always interesting, although sometimes puzzling. Our present Y. M. C. A. was organized during the latter part of the spring of 1913, through the interest and efforts of IMr. Whisenhunt and Mr. Williamson. Previous to this, our organization found it very difficult to tide over the winter terms. Now we are ' .vorkini v.ilh ;i sense of jjermanency, for we know we have supporting us the sincere interest of the men of the student body, the willing support of the president and the faculty. The men of the faculty have shown deep concern in our success as men as well as in our organization, and have presented in the most beneficial way problems of life and morality concerning ourselves and our fellow workers. Among the lectures given during the sunmier quarter of 1913, probably these were the most interesting : " What Women Demand of Men, " by ] riss Roberta Newell ; " The Other Man ' s Sister, " by Mr. C. C. Whisenhunt : and a series of illustrated lectures on " Purity of Life, " by Dr. C. G. Poole. During the fall the ])hase of the work was changed to that of general dis- cussion, directed by its president. Many tojiics were discussed that were easily within the ability of the average members to present, either by study or expe- lience. as " Business Morality, " " What Is an Ideal Citizen? " and " Of What Shall a Man ' s Religion Consist.? " Other means were also sought to further and intensify the interest, and draw new material. A number of receptions were given and on one occasion the Y. M. C. A. was entertained by the Y. W. C. A. on Hallowe ' en night. During the winter (juarter, as a means of continuing interest and promot- ing growth, individuals were held res])onsible for the success of the meetings, and an occasional lecture was given by prominent business men of the town. A student of Centenary College, Mr. Odon), who was sent as a delegate to " The Student Voluntary Movement " to Kansas City, Mo., addressed the Y. W. C. A. in a joint meeting with the Y. M. C. A., on the proceedings of this convention. His lecture telling of the great work of this convention was an inspiration to the members of both the organizations, and convinced us that we should reach for higher ideals in the future. During the latter ])art of the quarter, a constitutional committee was ap- |)ointed to examine the Constitution of the National Y. M. C. A., to see if it could be adopted and still retain our Catholic members. The committee recom- mended its ad()))tioii, which was accepted. This entitles us to National Mem- bership Cards, which we ordered at once. The future seems bright for our Y. M. C. A. Each member is wide awake and doing all in his power to make the organization the greatest success and a permanent student activitv in the Louisiana State Normal School. 3ntnt Hrrttny nf iSrltiitnuB ©niaut atinua SUNDAY KM ' AINCi. .IINH 8. 1913.

The purposes of the organization are to afford an opportunity for orchestral study, to encourage an appreciation of the best orchestral music, to assist in concerts and musical events given dur- ing the year. The membershij) is chosen by the director from the entire student body, and is based entirely upon the standard of work done by the candidates. Aside from its appearance in recital programs and public events, the orchestra has contributed to the bi-monthly music programs given by the School of Music at Assembly. Such a high standard of excellence has been maintained that the student body has hailed with delight each opportunity afforded to hear the orchestra. Only the highest types of music, belonging to the classic and modern schools of composition, are studied and prepared for public rendition. The zealous and faithful co-oj)eration of its members tjiroughout a long routine of j)ractice has made possible an excellence of artistic finish not usually found in similar amateur organizations. In the repertoire of the orchestra are to be found the following: Surprise Symphony (Haydn), Overture to Tancredi (Rossini), Tannhauser (Wagner), Coronation March (Kretschmar), Selection " Carmen " (Bizet), Serenata (Moszkowski), Humoreske (Dvorak), Aida March ( ' erdi), Selections from (irieg ' s Peer (Jynt Suite, No. 2, Hungarian Dances Nos. 5 and G (Brahms), Minuet (Beethoven), An diii Frueling ((irieg).

Qllfnral Bmitt The Choral Society constitutes one of the principal features of Normal life and its activities. It was founded at the beginning of the winter term of 1912 by Mr. J. Browne Martin, the director of the School of Music. The work of this organization has been excellent and it has accomplished more for the promotion of interest in things truly musical than any other form of musical endeavor. Not only has it afforded training and j)leasure to those who sing, but it has also strengthened the interest and ap])reciation of the student body and ])ublic in the highest type of choral literature, including operas, oratorios, and cantatas. Although the membership is voluntary, over one luuulred students are enrolled, and the interest and su])j)ort already manifested argue well for the future welfare and growth of the society. Each member looks forward with pleasure to the rehearsal hours on Tuesdays and Fridays. It has been said that " Music docs not require novelty ; nay, the older it is and the more accus- tomed we are to it, the greater its effect. " That the members of the society have experienced this is j)roven by increased cnjo nent at each succeeding rehearsal. Much of this j)leasure and enthusiasm, however, is due to the energy, ability, and symj)athy of the director, Mr. Martin. Not only does he direct the society in the most able manner ])ossible, but by words of encourage- ment spurs the members on to higher things. The society made its first ])ublic a])pcarancc at the Thursday Music Assembly, February 2()th, assisted by Mrs. Helen Yates-Martin, so])ran() soloist, presenting the soprano solo and chorus, " Lovely Appear, " from Gounod ' s " The Redemption. " The pronounced success of this initial ap])ear- ance was surpassed at the graduation exercises March 20th, when the society sang " Unfold Ye Portals, " with orchestra accompaniment, to the delight of a large audience. Preparation was begun during the winter semester of last year for the Commencement Concert by the society. The work chosen was Cowen ' s beau- tiful cantata, " The Hose Maiden, " which was the first large work |)resented in its entirety by the society. So imuli did the nieiiibers enjoy tlie melodious music jiiid tlie spirit of the cantata that its ])re])aration j)roved a source of continuous delight as well as one of profitable study. Each one entered into the leanu ' ng of the work with zeal and devotion, and in fact such loyal su{)])ort was given the dii ' ector that the chorus numbers were almost entirely memorized. This insurt ' d a rendition of the work which, for beauty of choraJ singing, sur- ])assed the expectations of those who heard the concert. Soloists, audience, and director were loud in their jjraise of the work of the society at this its initial appearance in tju ' rendition of a cantata; all of which ])roved that with serious effort and enthusiasm much could l)e accomplished in nuisical eiidi ' avor which would reflect upon the organization and the school. ( I ' Voin ' I ' he ShrcrijKirl T iiiits of June lltli.) The (•( ' iiiiiuMK ciiM ' iil concert {fi ( ' ii 1) ' the I ' lioral S ' icicly of llic School of Music of the Louisiana State Xoriiial, on I- " riday, was a very brilliant afi ' air. It was given under the diree- ion of Mr. .1. Browne Martin, assiste i In Sirs. Helen ' ates-Martin. so])rano; Mrs. James Frederick Cox, contralto; .Mr. Harold Sumrcll, tenor; and .Mr. I ' lrnest Hawkins, baritone. The f ' atnre of the concert was " The Hose .Maiden, " which was so beautifully rendered here a few years ajfo. ' l " he renderiiifr by the ( " boral .So -iety of the .State Normal was a niusieal event of note. Tlie chorus consisted of l. () Xornial jrirls and boys under liie direction of Prof. Martin, and showed most careful training in the man chorus numl)ers. llie solo numbers were M])])Iauded most enthusiastically time and time afraiii. Tlie ])rinci|)als ex])ressed themselves as Itaving enjoyed singing with such a well trained and such a fine voit ' ed chorus, and to such a large and ajipreciative audience. The soloists took the following jiarts: .Mrs. Helen ' ates-Martin, Hose Hlossoin; .Mrs. James I- ' rederiek Cox, the Cianh ' ner ' s Daughter; .Mr. Harold Sumrcll, the Forester; .Mr. Ernest Hawkins, the .Spring; .Miss I ' ' ,dith .Mae Hundy, Pianist. The society will present this yi ' ar at its annual concert Motow ' s opera of " .Marl ha " in concert form. This beautiful and tuneftd opera, arranged for conci rl prejiaration. has recently l)een given with gr-eat success by similar organizations of other schools in the East. Tlu ' rendition of " Martha " will be the most pretentious otl ' ering of the organization. Professional soloists who have appeared in the work ha e been engaged, and no ellort has lieeii s|)ared lo make this year ' s concert a notable event.

The city council generously fur- nished the electric wiring and lights. Large crowds of town people showed their interest in the band by turning out to listen to every rehearsal. AUGUS ' l ' U ( " ONCERT. On August 14, the first anniversary of tlie marriage of Mr. M. W.

On the afternoon of . ugUNt IT, llu- band gave an inlormal concert on the tennis courts in honor of the graduating class. This was due to tlie fact that there were six members of the band in the class. They were: Harry Kranson, clarinet; Malcolm Kaffie, conic ' t ; Hoc Browne, Milton Adams and 1). C. Bon- ncttc, basses, and C. P. Knight, bass drum. Mrs. Hawkins in her usual gener- ous manner had punch served to the band and all the guests. When the band reorganized in the fall of 1913 the prospects were indeed discouraging. Not only had six old men graduated in the summer term, but six others who were in town for the summer went away for one cause or another. The} ' were: Warren Voiers and Irion Nelkin, clarinets; N. B. Voiers, cornet; Harold Kaffie and Earle J. Freeman, trombones, and H. E. Dalton, alto. But the band immediately set to work and made a fairly good showing for the reception to the new students at the beginning of the term.

Band inade its first ajjpearaiico at the State Fair in Novem- ber, 1912. Tile good impression it made then was a source of great satisfac- tion to all the band and the pride of all the students. In 191 . ' J, the band, strengthened by some of the old members, so pleased the management of the fair association that negotiations have been opened considering a trij) of two days to the fair in 1914. It was evident to all close observers on that day that our band was the best equijiped college band there. The instrumentation and playing abilitv of the band was highly complimented bv manv of the members of the other bands there, including some of the most prominent mem- bers of the Thaviu ' s Russian Band. From this band our i)oys learned a great manv things, and all came home with new inspiration and determination to make our band the best in the state. The brass (juartet played an arrangement of Handel ' s " Father of Heaven " at a sj)ecial I ' ducational nu ' iting at the new Methodist clnirch on Novembi ' r 20, and also at the tenth term recej)tion to the graduates on Thanksgiving night, Xovembei 127. The saxo|)hones came in for a share of curiosity and admira- tion. COMiMENCEMENT. FRIDAY. DKCK.MBKR . " ).

On Saturday, December 12, the Methodist ladies held a ba aar and bai)v show in the Iiwi Hotel, at which the band played an informal conciit of the hour. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17. The band gave another liour ' s informal concert to open the rest room in the old Grammar School building in town, now known as the Rex Club build- ing, a room made ])o.ssible by the energy ' and persistence of the ladies of the Lesche Club. MINSTREL, DECEMBER 26. One of the reasons that constant imj)rovement of the band is possible is that the members ])ractice during school and vacation alike. During the Ciiristmas holidays the boys took advantage of the return of Harold and Malcolm Kaffie, Roe Browne, Milton Adams and Irion Nelkin, and, with their .assistance, gave a minstrel show at the opera house. In spite of rather active op])ositioii in the way of other attractions and rather heavy expense, the minstrel netted nearly forty dollars to the band treasury. This was applied on the new saxophone. ;. During the winter term the band played at the following basket ball games: Normal Boys vs. Pintville. Normal Girls vs. Marksville. Normal Girls vs. Bunkie. The band took ])art in the coimueiKH ' meiit exercises and the dedication of the class electrolier to the Xormal School. Ill tlie present term the band has taken its most extensive concert tri]i, playing concerts at Robeline, April 1; I ' elicaii, April 2; Mansfield, April B, and at DeSoto parish track meet, April 4. The new white duck uniforms were used for the first time on this trip. Needless to say, the third anniversary concert, held Friday evening, April 24, was the best of its kind. ' i1ie souvenir jjrograms, containing a picture of each member of the band, were a feature of the concert. 1 t . S. A. K. GIRLS ' QUARTET, Winners in Society Contest, May, 1913. .M. ( . C.

At the beginning of the fall term the facult y decided that the school annual should be a student production in a financial as well as literary Avay, and that the best way to make it so was to turn over to the three higher literary societies the entire management of the pub- lication of the Potpourri. Accordingly, they elected a business manager from each society: C. A. BLAN CHARD, M. " ( " . ( ' . " ; WALTER BREWER, E. L. S., and E. V. I)E BLIEUX, S. A. K., all three to work together in the business interest of the Potpourri. The editor-in-chief and assistant editors were selected by the English and art departments for their excellence in those subjects and their ability to do original work along the lines of Englisli and art, but tiie etjual rej)resentation of the societies among the assistants and class representatives was an im})ortant consideration in the selection. We trust that this, our initial effort, may be at least an earnest of what the societies will make the Potpourri in the future. We conclude with these words of thanks: To you who helped in the })reparation and organization of this book we offer our sincerest and dee])est thanks. The best that is in the Potpourri is the result of your labor, assistance and encouragement. This spirit and en- thusiasm with which you imbued us gave us life and determination and made it possible for us to struggle through the long, difficult, and trying task. If we have failed to please you with our management or in any way missed the mark of your ideal, we can only say that we have done the best that our time and skill would allow, and beg of you to " BE TO OUR VIRTUES VERY KIND; BE TO OUR FAULTS A LITTLE BLIND.

Mar h 4lh, Miss -Alice McNeely was tendered a farewell luncheon by a few of her girl friends. The tea room was tastefully deco- r:ilcd with pennants and banners, Th cnlor scheme, yellow and white, was carried out in the decorations. Ferns were arranged most artistically and Southern Smilax was twined on the elertroliers. From these were sus- pended yellow ribbons which were caught and fastened at the four cor- ners of the table with boqucts of yel- low jonquils. In the center of the table was a mir- rored plateau on which rested a bowl of jonquils.

With the coming of spring and the irresistable call of nature a crowd of Normal girls tore away from their narrow worries and duties and forgot themselves for a whole morning in the woods back of the Nor;nal last Satur- day. First a committee was sent to Mrs, Hawkins to ask if ttiey might go cray-frshing and with her consent came also buckets, a ball erf cord 3Trd meat - ttired in the conventional mid- dy and skirt, these girls departed, armedwith the articles Mrs Hawkins had given them. T icir course was north-west, via fences. At last they arrived at .Normal Lake, Here they made fishing poles witti sticks and cords and with pins as hooks and steak as bait were ready to catch all the fish that woidd come their way. -And indeed the fish did come their way for in so short a time eighteen nice sun perch (not crayfish) were caught. Tiring of this the pay party next wandered in o the wilds of the mossy woods, and oh. the violets and moss coverei trees that met their eyes! The whole place looked like a veritable Eden Kodak pictures were next in line, after which the long trip home was begun The happy girls reached their old home.

OUR PICKANINNIE FRIENDS Hosier Carter, Guard. Carter weighs 148 pounds, is 6 feet tall, and is 1!) years old. Carter played his first football last fall, and, though light for a line position, he played a great game, more than holding his man. He charged hard and low and fast, and tackled many a hack behind the line. On punts he was good at breaking through the line, and the first touchdown made against Lafayette was due to a punt blocked by him. Carter will be in school next fall, and his work will be watched with interest by the coach, and followers of Normal as well. WiLiJAJi F. DuxcKEi.jiAX ( " Bill " ), Halfback. " Bill " weighs 143 pounds, is 5 feet 11 inches tall, and is 19 years old. Bill was captain of the team — and a good one. He played two years under Dr. Pool, mostly at end, and so was one of the few old men to report last fall. On offense, he was a good ground gainer, and ran interference well. Because of his speed he was best in ojsen field work and end runs. His touchdown against Centenar ' was the most sensational run seen here this season. On defense, he played an equally strong game, being a hard tackier and good at breaking up forward passes. He graduates this spriiig, and so will not be liere another season. He will be greatly missed. Joe Farrar, Riiflil End. Farrar weighs 132 pounds, is 5 feet 7 inches tall, and is 3 years old. Farrar had never had on a football suit till last fall, yet he out- |)lajed every mj-.n he met during the season. He was fast, a sure tackier, and tniusually good at si .ing up the o])])onent ' s attack. Always playing a good game, he outdid himself in the Huston game, in which be aiul Kemp were stars. lie showed his sjjced in this game by catciiing the fleet llolfman from bchiTul. I ' " arrar graduates tliis winter, so, to the regret of cxeryone concerned, will not lie at the ormal tliis coming season. T. B. Ei ' iiAXKs, Cfnti ' f. Euhaiiks liad j)laye(l football in high scliool, l)ut this was his first year at Normal. He weighs 1j() pounds, is ,5 feet 10 inches tall, and ■2 years old. Using on offense a st le of play in which only direct passes from center are used, an accurate and dejiendahle center is ahsolutely essential. Ruhanks met these requiretncnts in a marked degree. He made but few poor jjasses, and his passing on liift plays was well-timel as well as accurate, l ubanks was also strong on defense, bolstering up the center of the line and breaking through well. Eubanks will likely be here next season, and ])lay his usual steady, go(xl game. Thomas I,. I1au i:v. II (tlfhiu-k. Harvey ] layed some on the scrubs in 191;. ' , but outside of tiiat bad iiad no football experience. He weighs ].)() ])ounds, is (i feet I inch tall, and iO years old. He was fast, followed his interference well, and his basketball exjierience made liim an excellent man at receiving forward ])asses. Harvey was best on end runs aiul off-tackle i)lays, on which he seldom failed to make the rc(|uired gain. Harvey ])crh;i])s played his best game against Lafayette. It is to be regretted that lie will not wear a N ' ormal suit again, as he graduates this winter. Cm iii.i;s I.DWis Tynds. Ltfl ■]n l. Tynes weighs only J:{() pounds, is 5 feet 9 inches tall, and is 19 years -old. He lives at Hackley, l.a. This was his first year in a foot- ball suit, and he showed up well. Lacking weight, and to some extent s|)ee(l, he made the team by hard work and ap])licatioii. Tynes was at bis best at tlu ' I ' iiievillc and .MonriH- games, and was the best man on the team for the receiving of a forward ji.iss. With this year ' s experi- ence to build on, Tvnes should be heard from next season. Castli; O. Hoi.r.Axi) ( " Speck " ), (JiidiicrlKirli. HoUmiuI weighs 123 pounds, is 5 feet 7 ' j inches tail, and is 18 j ' ears old. This was " Speck ' s " second year at quarter on the Xorinal team, and he played his usual heady, plucky, fijihtinji- fianic. " Speck " ])0ssesses s])eed, fight, and a jiood liead — the requisites of a good quarter — in a marked dejiree. His vahie to the team, howe er, lies tpiite as nmch in the confidence with which lie ins})ires his team-mates as in his own marked ability. This was shown clearly in the Pineville and t ' en- tenary games. " Speck " passed the liall with speed and accui-acy, whether a long or short pass, covered his pass well, was a fair punter and ilrop-kickcr, and a sure and hard tackier. IIi:miv I,i:on Kii.i.i:n. FiiIIIkicL. Killen weighs 62 pounds, is o feet 9 inches tall, and is 18 years old. He played left-tackle on the ' H te Mn, so this was his second year on the team, l)ut his first at fullliack. Killen was a terrific line jiluiiger, hitting hard and low, and never stopping until down. He ])layed his best games against l ' ine ille and Lafayette. The Lafayette ]ilayers, on their return home, told wonderful tales about " Xormal ' s lS()-|)oun l full- back " and he looks it when he bits you. Killen is caplaiii-eleet, and great lliings are e ])eete(l (if him ne t s ' asi)n. FuKi) .Taikson ( " Tu1 l)y " ), Tackle. " Tubby " has been on the leani for three years, so he was one of the few " N " men who started the season. He weighs l.jt ])oun(ls, is ,5 fVet 4 inches tall, and is 18 years old. His home is in Natchitoches. JJcsides playing a consistent game in the line, Jackson was a good place- kicker, and his " toe " added several points to Normal ' s score. " Tubby " has another year at Normal, and he is expected to show up even better than he has in previous years. WoonwAiii) W. I.ixDSKV, Oiiiird. Liiidsey weij lis KiO pounds, is ,5 feet II iiiclu-s tall, and 1!) years old. l.indsey is another man who played foothall for tlie first time last fall. At first he lacked l)oth s])eed and aggressiveness on the gridiron, as well as a knowledge of the game. And, though never a l)rilliant ))er- former, he improved steadily l)ut surely, and was coming into his own al the close of the season. He should make a good player next season, and his work will he closely watched. Clyde Cahtkh ( " Big Carter " ). (IikuuI. Clyde weighs KiO ])onnds, is (i feet tall, and . ' I years old. Clyde also was new to the game last fall, liut jilayed a steady, consistent game throughout the season. He is a tower of strength in the line, hut early in the .season was jirone to wait for the charge of his o))ponent. But later in the season he overcame this fault to a great extent, and pl,iyi d his hest game against Lafayette on Turkey Day. lie also will lie here next season, and will douhtless make a valuahle man. (i. W. Kk-mp, Tnrkl, ' . Kemji was one of the veterans who played again this season, lie weighs 17!) ))Ounds .ill hone and sinew.

He realized his ambition, which was to play on a team which heat lyouisiana College. And it was due in a large measure to his ability to locate th ' - basket that it was accomplished. .Always a wonderful player. Harvey was at his best when lie scored twelve of the twenty ))()iiits against Pineville, beating them :. ' () — 14. The only regret is that he was unal)le to go to Lafayette with the team and defeat them. Harvey is a rangy player, fast, and accurate in passing the l).ili and shooting goals. C. O. Hoi.i.AKi) ( " Speck " ), Forward. " Speck " also ])laye(l his third year im the varisity thi.s season. . nd those who liave seen his playing each year de- clare that this year he ])layed the strongest game of his career. His greatest worK was at Cenlenary and .SI. Charles College, where lie scored rcjx ' atedly from the field, though closch guarded. .S])eck, like Harvey, is fast, accurate at shooting goiis, and vcr iiard to " iiard. IJovu l- ' iiKY, (I ' liiird. Krey played the ])ositi n of safety guard exce])tionally well. This was his first season, and he showed marked improvement. Frey was at his best in the Pineville game, in which he seemed to be everywhere at the same time. He was not a strong offensive jilayer, but very few goals were made over him. The Lafayette players diiliiied him " sticking i)laster, " so closely did he guard his man. I l(iMi;ii C MCPKii, ( ' iiiti ' r. This was Carter ' s first season as a regular, though he j)layed last season on the reserve scpiad. He was somewhat short for the center (losition and was han li ' a])])ed throughout every game on t.iat account. However, he | lay»-(l a strong, consistent game. He is cry accurate at locating the basket at long range, and v .is, llurcfiu ' c. always a menace tii his opponents. He pla ' d an especially strong defensixc game, so that but few goals were scored aji ' .iiiisl lijni. V. W. LiNDSKV, (Iwird. Lindsey played some during the season 191- ' -li)l:}, tliough he was not a regular. He | lays the jiosition of running guard un- usually well. He is strong at working the ball down the field from ills o|)))onents ' goal, and is (piick to return to his guarding ])osition when the time comes. He was good at seeing an oppiM-tiiiiit V lo score, and repeate lly took a lvantage of his o])|)orluiiily lo dribble the ball to his own goal and score a field goal. H. I,. Kii.i.KN. Siih-d ' iKird. Killen only tliis season developed basket-hall ability. By nature a fighter, Killen was ])rone to employ footliall taeties in his ])laying. However, with a l)etter knowledge of the rules, and this year ' s experience, he should develoj) into a first-class guard. To iA Wii.i.iAMs, Siih-I ' iini ' onl. Williams is another man new to Normal basket-ball until this season, who had been a high school star. He started out well, but did not develop as expected. However, he was used on the tri]), and gave a good account of himself. Good work is ex- i)ected of him next season. CllAS. Tynks, Siil -F()nriii l. " Chollie, " while not a regular, dcvelojx ' d late in the season into a good forward. He is a good dril)bler, ])asses the hall accurately, and has a good eye for the l)asket. With more ag- gressiveness antl ex]U ' rience, I ' ynes will make a good man next season. 15. K. CoNiiKH, Siih-Porwdfd. t ' onger is greatly handica])])ed by his size. He started late in I be season, moreover, and so did not show varsity class. He is a fighter, however, and always in the game, and will be heard from next season. I,i:s ' ri:tt .VIoN ' ricdcr, Fonraid iind Ccnlcv. " .Monty " was the utility man — and a good one. This was his first season at the Normal, though he was a star in his high school days. He i)layed the positions of center and forward .ihnost e([ually well. He played his best game at Pineville, against Skinner, their lanky center. " .M(jnty " should be a valu- able member of the team next season. 3uBt a " S prrk " His liJiir s li lif and tangled, and In- lias a turiu ' d-ui) iiosc: His voicf is loud and boistrrons and lu-vor ' cts rf[)()sc; His face is full of freckles and liis ears are shaped like fins.

He always mark tln ' hallways with the prints of muddy hoots; Rejoices in a hall- anie where everybody roots; He whistles on his finders ' til it almost s|)lits your ears.

I : s r-n o THE GRADUATES PRESENT THE RIVALS BY SHERIDAN FRIDAY EVENING MAYSai 9 13 AT 7:00 RM. NORMAL AUDITORIUM " The Rivals " was jjresented by tlic ra(luiitiii r class of June, 1913, under the direction of ] Irs. [NlcVoy. At an early hour on the evening of lay thirtieth, the vast auditorium at Xornial showed evidence of the large audience that niiglit l)e expected. By the time the curtain rose on the first act, the ushers despaired of seating such a great assemblage of ])eo])le. P ven with unusual crowding and maneuvering, quite a number of guests were forced to stantl. Never before had the audito- rium been the scene of so much interest and ex])ectancy. To increase the interest, souvenir i)r()grams were distributed to the enter- ing friends. The cast of characters, thus revealed, was as follows: SIR AXTHONY AHSOLUTK GII.MKR RF.EVES CAPTAIX AHSOLUTK CLAYTON 1U)NN KTTK FALKLAND GILI ' .S WLSI ' , BOB ACRKS HL ' NYAN NASH SIR LUCIUS O ' TRIGCKR FRANK J.VCKSON MRS.

I ' F.RRl ' .r DAVID WKSLKY TIIO.M FAG ' KROMK AYDF.LL As the play progressed, it was evident that all expectations were ful- filled. The thunderous applause and hearty laughter testified to the apprecia- tion of the audience, the humorous situations appealing to both old and young. The humor alone is enough to make the comedy a success without the additional knowledge that " The Rivals " is ;i masterpiece of Sheridan ' s, and has won international reputation. The scene of the play is laid in Bath, where the wealthy Bob Acres and Jack Absolute, masquerading as Beverly, a poor lieutenant, become rivals for the hand of Miss Lydia Languish, a romantic heiress chaperoned by her aunt, Mrs. Malaprop. Many amusing conq lications occur, thi ' ough the machina- tions of Mrs. Malaprop, with the result that Lydia marries the lieutenant and the man of her aunt ' s choice. The students chosen to take the parts of the characters testified to the good judgment of the director, as well as the talent of the graduating class. Mr. Reeves presented a stately and handsome appearance, as befitted a gentle- man of the eighteenth century. Mr. Reeves played well the part of the father irate over the refusal of his only son to marry the woman of his father ' s choice. Sir Anthony ' s lively dance from the stage with the " learned " Mrs. Mala])rop proved that even for the oldest of life ' s creatures song and dancing still existed. Miss Josie Pugh, as the romantic, idealistic Lydia, was splendid, and dis- proved the old maxim that " we cannot be that which avc are not. " Miss Pugh ' s beauty and attire gave the im])ression of an old picture just ste])ping fi-om its frame. She was (juite as fascinating in the role of captured sweetheart, as in that of the tantalizing romanticist. Clayton Bonnette was an ideal ( ' aptain Absolute, and mas(|ueraded so well that he deceived even Miss Lydia for a while. His succ-ess and the charac- ter of hero and lover made him, perlia])s, slightly dangerous among so many impressionable Normal girls. Bunyan Nash was exceptionally good, and proved, in the duel scene, that it is not always man ' s natural inclination to fight that causes fatal disputes, i)ut rather a continual fanning of the fiame of anger. For a well-trained Nor- mal boy, Mr. Nash showed wonderful adeptness in the use of Bob Acres ' slang. Miss (Iranary, as Lucy, was fascinating and coquettish, which brought the eighteenth century very close to some of our moderTi girls. Miss Roach intulc a sincere, loyal Julia. The jealousy of Falkland seemed excusable, when occasioned hv this beautiful Julia. Miss Jeanne Webre was a perfect Mrs. Malaj)ro|). With her bobbin r curls, and learned manner, accompanied by a constant misuse of words, " Mrs. Malaj)roj) " was a great source of amusement to the audience. Indeed, the success of the play depended largely on the " beatitude " of Mrs. Malaprop, who was magnificent. The congratulations and expressions of ap])reciation from friends were unnecessary to tell the young ])erformers that their play was a com})lete suc- cess. The eleventh termers felt they had accomplished that which so many attempt — to star. ClUTICISMS ON " THE RIVALS. " .Mii.

Jaj)an surely! For here is a veritable garden of wisteria in full bloom, enclosing a wee wicker porch, the only part of some dainty house that is to be seen. The soft patter of sli|)pered feet is heard, as well as the rustle of gar- ments, and a whole bevy of those wonderful little maidens whisk into sight, singing Ohayo (good morning) with such vim I can scarce help replying. I soon learn that the ])urpose of all this excitement is to greet a friend on her last birthday to be s])ent with them. She has come of age now, and childhood days are over; a note of sadness is in her tone, and as soon as the last note ceases, everyone feels the solenmity of the occasion. Meanwhile, the companions of Kitu and Kayo have begun work on gar- lands. What a jiicturesque display of harmonious colors! Lovely delicate blues, pinks, and lavenders against the green background. The industrious fingers make one eager to help, while the spirit of light-hearted haj)])iriess breaks forth from ruby lii)s, too glad to be restrained. The garlands being done, they enter the house while Cliayo comes to clear awav the litter. ' I ' he other side of the " entei-taimni nt " is presc-nted. Hut she has scarci ' lv put up lur talc of woe. iinphasized to a humorous degree by " What ever shall I do " when the most mournful dirge stops her and causes every heart to beat faster. The savonaral It is onlv when trouble or misfortune eiitt-rs a house that those notes are made to echo and re-echo so mournfully. O llamrs note of sorrow is well chosen, for, to add to her emotion of leaving childhood, comes the news of her father ' s departure to Cliina for war, and therefore his inability to be present at the evening ' s pKasure. At the suggestion of Kitu, O HaMU sings to the bird, a gift from the absent father, asking for ho|)c. No creature in tin- world could help respond- ing to those notes, and with jjarted lips and glowing eyes () Hanu thanks the merry creature for reassuring her by its joyful twitter. ' J ' he excitement gradually disai)pears and, overcome by tlu ' noontide heat. i tlicy assume comfortable positions, while a soothing lullaby is sung. Little 1)V little the eyelids close — the song becomes a hum — the hum dies to a mur- mur — and sleep is master. Some are reclining; others arc upholstered by softly tinted cushions ; others in a heaj). The Great Sun-God holds them in his hands — powerless. We comprehend — it is gone ! I think it is gone. I sit in silence and compare America with Japan ; then — as nu ' steriously as before I see again. It is the same garden, but the sleepers are gone! The festoons, lanterns, and garlands are hung and every- thing is deserted ! Oh, no ! There is somebody. Two faces peer round a vine, but they are not brown faces with soft, almond eyes ! Quite a contrast rather. Great big blue, staring, wide-open, inquisitive eyes, punctuated by small, upturned noses and babyish mouths. Two faces very much alike! By this time the owners of the countenances have entered, and I see two American girls ! They evince as much curiosity about the novelty of the jilace as I hjive felt. They peep, they peer, they scrutinize, compare notes, and begin again. Suddenly their behavior changes to rigid formality, and I sec a severe old " dragoness " enter, whom they address as iNIiss Knowall — a worthy name by her appearance. Her tone is very condescending, but has very little effect, for the girls tell her jjlainly they are tired of studying and justify their remarks by a duet concerning their lives. The old lady cannot be outdone, so she in turn tells about her scliool days. She becomes so absorbed in doing this that she heeds not Nora ' s nor Dora ' s mimics, and they not being willing to be in the " shade, " slip away where they can be in the " limelight. " Miss Knowall having become so deeply engrosst ' d in her own affairs, merely remarks on the girls ' absence and begins to sketch " so beautiful a «ij)ot. " The ciiarni of sleep still pervades, and, overcome by the balmy and aromatic sj)ice-laden bree e, slie soon succumbs. No sooner has she fallen asleep than the Japanese girls returning dis- cover this intruder, and plan to frighten her for her rudeness. Accordinffly they gather round lier and at a given signal rush at her with ojien parasols, screaming at the top of their voices. Their scheme works splendidly. Miss Knowall is very much frightened and is begging them in ever - language she knows to allow her to depart, when O Hanu interferes by demanding from the maidens an exj)lanation of their actions. She then, as well as the girls, declares her love for America, and begs Miss Knowall and her jjroteges to stay for the festival. Tliey willingly acquiesce, and are assuming places when Mikado, O Hanu ' s father, is ushered in — a surprise indeed, hut the only thing to be desired now. Such a round of fun begins — dances, songs, toasts, presentations of gifts, and the like. The revelry increases — a climax seems approaching — the scene is all a moving mass of colors, swinging lanterns and fantastic figures — then — it is gone! It is only a taste! Only a glimpse! Only a symbolic |)uii(tuat ion mark in the lives of some earnest workers! Only a memory in the annals of Nor- malitcs. Til i: I.M A I )i:(ii K A V I ' K N It KII .

In his dreams he took counsel with his old friends, Caesar, Cicero, Pompcy, Aeneas, and it was through these that he found the solution to his problem. At Aeneas ' s suggestion, the Sibyl appeared bearing the magical golden branch by which means he was trans- ported to Pompeii, in the ruins of wliich he found " A Roman School, " which had been there for ages, since Vesuvius had poured forth its lava and turned the entire schoolroom with its occupants to stone. He bore it back with him to the Noi ' mal, and, by the aid of the same magical golden branch, life was renewed in the veins of both teacher and pupils, and the machinery of the school was again set in motion. Then, the Latin students, together with those of other courses who had become interested, had the opportunity of seeing before them these Romans, Cicero, Caesar, Anton} Pompey, and others who had been the bane of their Latin existence. The magister enters the schoolroom, where Antony and Marcus and Quintus Cicero are playing ball, while others are playing various games, and he calls the roll aloud, which is answered by each pupil present with an equally loud " adsum. " Then a lesson in grannnar ensues in which Marcus Cicero easily distinguishes himself, but his brother, Quintus, is reprimanded for not having i)rej)ared his lesson as his brother has j)reparcd his. While the lesson is in progress Catiline enters late and is severely chastised by tiie magistei-. Pompcy has to be fed with cake before he will recite his lesson. At this juncture Caecus enters and as a punishment for being tardy he nmst recite " Mica, mica. " Then all desire to recite, and after several have been ])ermitted to do so, the entire class go through a series of exercises at the direction of the teacher. After Marcellus has informed the pupils that " all Gaul is divided into three parts " and the boundaries of Gaul have been pointed out by Lucullus, two indices arrive, Publius Crassus and Aulus Archias, who are just in time to hear the ])upils sing " Milites Christiani. " Then follows a contest in oratory between Caesar and Cicero, the theme being the j)ersonal ambition of each orator as stt fortli by liiiiistlC. The JiuI ls docTce that Clicero is tlie victor and he is crowned. Soon (Jaius Crassus, tlie son of one of the iudices, arrives, and at the request of tlic pupils he recites for them a poem, " Pome of a Possum. " The pu|)ils then depait, shouting a chiirful " N ' ale Magister! " The phiy was voted a complete success, thanks to tiie untiring efforts of Mr. Winstead and the cheerful co-operation of tliose students who took part; and those who witnessed it returned to tluir Latin books and classes with a greater interest in Roman life and its expression in the Latin tongue.

ShaukBi tittug (g rmau It had long been the custom on Xonnal Hill to dance every Friday night in tlie dining-room, but the monotony of these simple affairs became terrible beyond words, .so, after much plotting and ])lanning, the girls finally evolved the idea of a Thanksgiving German. Well, a Thanksgiving German we had, and, for two weeks previous to the auspicious occasion, we had Thanksgiving German for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and little snatches of it between meals and in whispered conversa- tion after light bell — when the matron chanced to be lodged securely in her room ! Ail went along smoothly until someone was so bold as to express a desire for men. ]MEX ! ON NORMAL HILL! Was anything ever so prej oster- ous? Well, you know how women are. When that one irresponsible creature voiced iier desire for the company of the stronger sex, the wild desire spread like fire and everyone wanted them! They wanted men, and men they would have! And men they did have! Therefore, although the gentlemen had very effeminate voices, and an overabundance of hair, they could " guide " and were very gallant. So the feminine hearts were glad. Thaid sgiving night, when the guests arrived in the dining-room, they were ushered into the reception room, where they discarded their wraps. After the usual delay occasioned by the ladies, each coujjle was announced and pro- vided with dainty hand-|)ainted programs, proudly and ap|)ropriately adorned l)y " Father Turkey. " The hall was lovely with its festive decorations. In owe corner there were s|)reading palms enclosing a delightful retreat for enamored couples (we hear that not a few took refuge there). On one side of the room, the |)unch bowl, in its bed of flowers, was jjresided over by a trio of charming girls. Misses Ruth Ford, Johiuiie David, and Alice IMcNeely, while sandwiches were served by Misses Frances and Fiddie Teddlie. In the background stretclied a vista of snowy tables covered with crystal and silver { ), which, to anyone who 4 paused to look across it, called up reminiscences of happ}- times spent there. However, small time was afforded for calling up scenes of the past. The floor was like glass, and the music furnished by the " Benton and Scaife Band " was so enlivening that everyone nearly danced herself to death. The conventional " black " of the men ' s costumes formed a fitting background for the cluirniing and vari-colored gowns of the young ladies. In fact, the wiiole affair was the scene of exceptional beauty and festivity. ri-f riie German was led by " Norm " Benton and ' asliti Stopher, followed b} : Misses. Messrs.

One day during the first weeks of October a faculty reception to the students was announced for the following Friday evening. Many and varied were the speculations of the " newcomers " as to the nature of such a high- sounding function. Some, fresh from home and summer resorts, had visions of a cotillon, or a German, and what-not. They beheld themselves sweeping into an elegantly appointed ball-room (supposed to exist somewhere on the Hill), visions of loveliness in fashionable creations, the cynosure of all eyes. Many times during the week they glided gracefully over the waxed floor of this imaginary ball-room, surrounded by the gallant youths they had capti- vated ; or tripped with light and fantastic toe to the entrancing strains of a dreamy waltz, rendered by an orchestra hidden behind a bank of palms and ferns, the belles of the ball. Accordingly, Friday evening found them arrayed in their best, and on hand at the appointed hour. Alas for the dreams of youth ! The elegant ball-room faded away in the awful reality that the dining-hall, with its tables pushed together in the middle of the room, and chairs piled on the tables, was to be used for the occasion ! Nothing more exciting than a few faculty members and " old " girls in simple costumes met them at the door and bade them have a good time. Nothing that savored more of a dance than a grand mai-cli was ])ennitted. None of your tangos, one-steps, or fancy dances, but the dignified old ' irginia reel, led by fair maids in colonial costumes, followed by such good old-time games as Farmer in the Dell, Jacob and Rachel, and so on, gratified their terpsicliorean inclina- tions. Wholesome fruit i)unch took the place of more fashionable refreshments, and the Normal Band, in lieu of an orchestra, furnished music until the guests departed at 8:30, voting the faculty reception a most enjoyable att ' air.

M., Two goblins we, Letitia and Dorothy, Will hold a convocation of all true witches and goblins At our cave of horrors (Tea Room). October 31, 1913. Slowly it dawned uj)on the twelve that October 31 was Hallowe ' en, and that they were invited to attend a real " spooky " Hallowe ' en partv. Therefore, the following night, () I . M., found them transforming them- selves from attractive girls to the most repulsive spirits of darkness. Staid sheet.s and pillow-slips found themselves being })inne(l fantastically about human figures. Faces were floured, and Milady ' s vanity box was ransacked and a hidden eye-brow pencil was revealed. .Iudici( is application of the ])encil pro- duced remarkable results. At last the girls who had been dressing the j)han- toms stood back and fearfully pronounced their work good. More ghastly a|)paritions never appeared on Normal Hill. Several of the girls had madi- pilgrimages to the woods and had come back carrying large bones, found behind the dairy. A few daubs of Rosaline finger-nail j)olish had made the bones seem not so old and dead. After a few mumbled thanks to the toilers, the ghosts diparted, re|)»at- ing in sepulchral tones, " Double, double, toil and troubU-, Fire burn, and cauldron bubbli-. " Arriving at the appointed |)lace, they wei ' e ushered into the ca e of hor- rors by a villianous-looking oM hag. Truly it was a cave of honois; the room was dimly lightid bv a flickering blue light ; the floor was littered with cross- l)ones ; gruesonu ' figures huddled agam t the walls oi- groxi ' lled on t hi ' floor. In one corner an old hag seated in a ragged tent told fortunes in a ra ping, I ' at- tling ()ici ' . (Do ghosts ha i ' fortvnies, wi ' wonder. ' ' ) After a whili ' the hag rose and exhorted all true ghosts to divulge their crimes and gem-rally maki- uu-rrv. Weird tales of hoiror pa e(l from lip to lip, and (iendish joy slowly pei " aded tin- den. When all secrets had been disclosed, the hag again rose and bade the ghosts partake of tin- nourishment provided, before the clan w»nl out on this night of reunion, to strike terror unto the hearts of all humans. At a wave of the liag ' s stick, plates of friend chic-ken, nut sandwiches, fruit, candy, and cups of chocolate appeared upon the table. Strange to relate, this food was hardly of the type one would expect a phantom to partake of. The ghosts gnawed the chicken bones, and sipped the chocolate, in nmch the same way ar. ravenous Normal girls do. After tiie repast, the specters rose with one accoi ' d and tiled out into the night. The campus was flooded with pale moonlight, and the long lines of swaying white figures was not the most pleasant sight in the world. Several grouj)s of imitation ghosts, on seeing the real things appi ' oaching, scattered and fled with cries of fright. The line moved noiselessly on until they came to the president ' s cottage. When the hag tapped thrice, Mr. Hoy came to tlie door. The line was immovable. He started perceptibly, but at once regained his comjaosure and came over and ])eered into each distorted face, solemnly calling the name of each ghost. U was now time for the specters to start shaking. But when the jiresideiit had finished identifying the last girl, he bent nearly double with laughter and in ited the whole line into his house. Silently they entered. All brandished their bloody bones, then l)eginning with the hag. lach in time uttered a direful prophecy. Then all bi ' aiulislR ' d their bones again and silently formed line and de|)arted, leaving the cottage in gales of laughter. By this time the spell of Hallowe ' en had so entered them that they decided to make a night of it, and, casting propriety to the winds, they hastened up tlie old ( " hemistry Laboratory, wliere the V. W. C. A. were giving tlie Y. 1 I. C A. a nice, dignified part v. HcaNcns ! what a conniiotion these hideous figures, wielding their awful bones, caused among the daintily attired maids and the gallant gentlemen! Without (l()ul)t thev were the center oi atti ' action tlu ' remainder of the evening. J ' lveryone trii ' d to guess who they were, but the identity of but few was disclosed. ' V w ghosts ate again here in a most un- seemly manner and performed all maimer of " stunts " not commonly in- (hilged in by the spirits of the nethei ' woild. H I he liinc tlu ' last l)ell rang, all the nice, (juiet little i)arty conversation was forgotten, and everyone was weary of laughing at some of the antics of the ghosts, who hati foi ' tunately left the dignity of prospect ixc teachers at home in a l)o .

Auut tuat fi QIl|rtBlmaa In a world, such as the Normal, where everything is hurry, hum, and buzz, it is not surprising that people do not have time for others and work a great deal for themselves. Even Normal girls think of each other as selfisli about the little things of life, and we are — but my purpose in writing this is to prove that we are not. It was the Christmas Spirits that did it all. It happened this way. All of the girls were preparing for the Christmas holidays. Happiness was at its height. Every spare minute was spent on presents for the home folks, and " Home " was on the lips of everyone. One evening the girls were sitting around, on the bed, chairs, and floor Ml room 125, B building, all talking at once to ]Miss Messcrschmidt, in their usual bright way of their home-going. Talk was especially easy that evening, liecause there was an unusually large troop of Christinas Spirits hovering around, putting lovely thoughts into the girls heads, dropping song and laughter into their throats, and painting home scenes on their minds with brushes of memory and imagination. Each girl heard the whispers and felt the Spirit, and responded readily. A calm had settled over the room, as is often the case after a hilarious evening, and one busy S})irit, glad of the ()})()ortunity, hurried over to Ruth ' s ear and said: " Why do you take all your haj)piness with you. ' ' Can ' t you leave a little at the Normal. ' " ' Now, whether the Spirit knew it or not I cannot tell, but that suggestion came at the psychological moment, for Ruth had just been gro])ing for something of the kind all evening. She was thinking of an old score she had to settle with Aunt Sinai, the old " darkey " maid, and the very thing to do was to leave some Christmas ha])piness with her — and that was how the plan of giving Aunt Sinai a Christma.s tree began in " B " building. Preparation and plans had been under way for a week. The girls had given freely, and Miss Messerschmidt had shop})ed with care. The tree had been trimmed and stood in readiness. The Kangaroo Court had resolved to do all it could to keep peace and harmony during the ceremonies, and everyone was accompanied by a group of SPIRITS on the eventful morning. There wasn ' t a girl in " B " building that didn ' t Ihrill with expectancy when she saw the familiar form of Aunt Sinai coming across the campus. How quickly tliov crowrlrd into flu- liall an l on tlir stairs near tlir door whcrr she would have to enter. As Aunt Sinai opened the door she was confronted b ' the stony aj)pear- ance of Miss Messerschmidt backed by ninety-six excited girls, trying to keep the smiles from their mouths and twinkles from their eyes — and all the while the Christmas Spirits were there in force, remember. ' Come in, Sinai, " commanded Miss, in a tone which would have done honor to the judge of the court. " You ' ll have to account to the girls for what ha])pened in this building yesterday. A man was seen in this hall " — (and her lii)s came together with a smack). " N-no b-body ain ' t been in y-year, Miss Messer — " AikI . uMt Sinai ' s voice quivered. " Well, get your keys and we ' ll see about that. These girls want to .see if any of their things have been touclud. Hurry up " — And then silence reigned supreme as each girl watched intently the shak- ing hands of poor Aunt Sinai, as she hurriedly opeiu-d the closet door under the stairs. A long pause and then an " Oh I " and then tears (piickly tilled her eyes as she caught a glimpse of the beautifullv trimmed ( " liristmas tree that glistened as the light from the hall fell upon it. ' i ' he little tree was artisti- cally decorated with tinsel and other Christmas ornament; fruits and candy hung from the branches, and in the very top nestled a inciii undi- of iron, unlike other men ready to keep money. Then there was a stuffed dog. a dre s, some handkerchiefs, stockings, apron material, and, best of all, an umbitlla. I can assure y«)u there was not a dry eye in the buihling as the faithful old colored woman in her own sincere way thanked the girls for each article as she fondly handled it, and each girl was silent as she told them that thev had given her her first Christmas tree. All the while the Christmas Spirits danced with joy. (But I don ' t know whether they tangoed or did the ir- ginia reel.) " But, Aunt Sinai, weren ' t you scared. ' " one of the girls asked after the first excitement had passed. " Lord, honey, I guess I wu . " . nd then, aftir a pause, " Miss .Mes.ser, she talks so Holid. " After it was all over every Christmas Spirit crept into a girl ' s lnarl an l is still there to this day. Fi.oitKNt i; Bi;. Trv.

" Our dormitory, a large two-story wooden building (in club slang " the shack " ), is situated on a remote corner of the campus and is encircled by a grove of virgin pines. Directly in front of the " shack " is the volley-ball court, where many hard-fought battles are fought good-naturedly at various and sundry times. In the morning the sight of the boys as they file out cajoling, laughing, fidl of life, and eager for their day ' s work, would cause anyone to want to fall in and live foi- a few short months, at least, the life of a club boy. However, their return in the afternoon presents another view etjually as interesting. If a boy has had a successful day, or, in other words, if he has made a " hit " with his teachers, then a gleam of light and hope shines in his countenance. But if the day has been the reverse, one need ask no (piestion. The most laughable time comes when wc assemble on the front ])orch each evening after dinner. It is for this occasion that each boy saves his joke. Anyone who is familiar with the life of the boys can tell two or three days later that there has been a Lycevmi number, for the reason that the laughs nre louder and more ])r()l()nged. It eventually leaks out on the boy whose girl had already had her ticket punched, or who was observing Lent, or did not care to have company on this or that particular occasion. Then the poor boy who ha])pens to be the victim has to undergo the awful experience of being " ragged " ; worse, if he has never had all the wit of a crowd of boys turned on him. The first few days of a " Frcshie ' s " life are interesting, not only to the old boys, but to the " Freshies " themselves. Since hazing has been abolished, we have to satisfy ourselves by going around, scaring them by telling them how badly we do haze. Yet we are glad to have them, especially when the boys ' tables are full, since this gives some of the older boys an opportunity to cat at the faculty table. Sometimes we do sweeten their coffee with salt, but what of that. ' ' One of the most pronounced features of our daily routine is the way wc assume a housewife ' s duties, since we are the only ones to look after the " home. " When we become weary of this work, after due consideration, we decide that if women are to usurp our place as politicians, we must of necessity become efficient housekeepers. Tliis is only one of the many subjects to be confronted. Our regular study period, which extends from six to ten, is often interfered with by swarms of yisitors. We, being unable to hold a social meeting during these hours, have devised such schemes as : " Have my seat and stay awhile, " or, " You know, I have a lot of work to do tonight; Avon ' t you help me. ' ' " The visitor, thinking a hint to the wise is sufficient, generally departs. The latter part of the week, especially Friday night, is a high time for fun. It is then that the string band (home product) is called into ))lay, and singing and dancing begin. When the time comes for refreshments to be served, the crowd (luietly dis|)ei ' ses and wt- go away in groups to the fruit-stand. I shall expect to see you in the near future, and should you be able to attend the Normal soon, do not fail to join our " club family. " J]. Baknes.

Often wc sliudder as we go about our daily tasks, and expect to see the ghosts of those old maids spring at us from dark corners and from behind the clothes on our locker doors. We dread the coming of the next Hallowe ' en, when those old pedagogues arise from their dreary graves to screech and howl about the beds of those who go trooping in on Friday nights to the hall, — where once they sat in stern and solemn silence listening to the long-winded discussions of peda- gogic principles, infallible rules for preserving the old maid school teacher forever, — to look at the glittering, gliding, flashing, flaring, reeling, rolling, rollicking, kaleidoscoj)e of the " movies " !

NautgatorB ffi rrpttou Oh, ye shades of departed tenth termers, stand u]) and take notice when tlie Navigators entertain. Following an estahlishcd custom, they gave a recep- tion to the Arcadians on the twenty-seventh of Fehruary. The old chemistry laboratory was decorated with pine, narcissi, and vio- lets, and the background was a perfect bower of evergreen and Spanish moss. The electric lights and windows were draped with moss, and the doorway was arched by evergreen and bunched violets. The guests were received by the four officers of each class and ushered into the room where entertainment awaited them. First, partners were called for the grand march, led by Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Stopher — and they led, too, into all intricate steps and turns. Violin and pijino solos were given by Misses Pearl Duncan and Mattie IJaker, which were followed by comic recitations by Misses Scaife, Beatty, and Butler. Delicious punch and cake wci ' e served throughout the evening, reviving the eager crowd and sending them rejoicing into the next feature. But the most interesting was tiie new dance which lias invaded the hill- nothing but the grand and dignified old dance, the irginia reel — for which the guests had been practicing om r a week. ' hat if there weix- not more than six gentlemen with whom to dance! What if tiie lucky girls wovdd not take ■ ' turn about " and give the rest a chance! What if no one looked as graceful as he should! It was all fun and something new to the Normal Hill. Fveryone laughed to see himself as others saw him. And when it was over, all were ready to give three cheers for the Navigators ! Mii.niiEu Kin.i.v (one of the rNLl ' C ' KV). • ' GIRLS IS GIRLS ' ■BOYS IS BOYS ' Snpptng tijr 1CtgI|t Jffantaattr Sup (IN THE BOYS ' DORMITORY.) Possibly the tiiiR ' of these dances will strike vou as peculiar, happening as they do on Saturday night after we have returned from society. But when- ever a boy has failed to get a date or even a smile from his cherished one at society, nothing furnishes as hap])y a medium for getting rid of his disappoint- ment. This is equally true of the boy without a future ho])e, for, while he sits at society watching the other boys having a good time, a feeling of loneliness and forsakenness cree])s over him, for he realizes that the future is dark and cold. Consequently this modern dance of ours is a necessary stimulant to revive him to his true senses. Not only does it aj)ply to these two classes of boys, but it is also applicable to one who has been successful. Coming back as he does nervous, yea, almost excited, it is absolutely necessary that we have something to pull his pulse back to normal. The only discussion that ever arises is concerning whether the dance will be the historic irginia reel, the fantastic two-step or the renowned bear dance. This question is always settled with as much cahnness and serenity as a federal judge shows when he is delivering his charge to the jury on some great case. After this question is settled the mighty musician, Scallan, who draws the bow over the strings with such marvelous skill, walks forth with the dignity of a Caruso. He always has at his side the famous accompanist, (i. H. Morris. When these two great nmsicians give sway to their great talent and the sweet strains of music that have so often inspired men to action begin to settle upon the ears of the serious and deliberate body of boys, I ' ourciau, who, on account of his length, lungs, size of mouth, and swiftness of tongue, is the recognized leader on such occasions as these, leads out, having for his partner usually the most graceful dancer in the crowd, G. Anderson. Then the other couples fall in line according to rank; that is, if it is the historic Virginia reel or tlie renowned bear dance. To say that the boys and girls (who are really boys with handkerchiefs tied around their arms) are graceful, is speaking in too light terms. They are rr as graceful and agile as they could possibly be were tliev dancing in King George ' s court. The way that we move our lunnber eleven hoofs without stabbing off pieces of avoir(hi])ois from each other ' s ankles, heels, etc., is simply marvelous. To see Eubanks and Har])er as they go shaking and dragging their large understandings over the room is worth a minstrel. To iiear " Speck " as he stands and gives commands in such voluminous tones is to be deaf. To behold Blanchard ' s possum-like grins as the dance j)rogresses is to think of ' simmon season. To watch " Ham " and Kllender as they tried to knock holes through the floor is to want to teach them manners. To observe Campbell and Iknnett as they get lost and hinder the dance is to want to kick them out of the dance till they learn how to follow their partners. To have the sensation of seeing Baker and Concieniie giving some of their famous Russian twists with their duck-like legs is lo be filled with laughter. To see Brewer, Laborde, Fowler, and Claman as they wheel around with the imaginary girls of their dreams is to be filled with sympathy. To see those that stand around and watch is to think of the dance of the old Southern plantation, when the niggers stood on the outside and glared in through the open windows. To see Canter- burv, (rriffin, Kmmons, and Barnes as they try to keep order is to show them that they are out of order. These performances named above continue till one of the monitors flashes the light. Then we all go silently to our rooms, each witli the satisfaction that he has done his best and each beliexiiig that the poet intended the follow- ing lines for us: A swaying, fluttering inultitiule.

CUbafiHU-iiah What deliglitful iiRinorits tlic mention of the duifing-disli calls up in tlio mind of a Normal girl! How many dreary Saturday and Sunday afternoons in the winter time, when the weather is miserable, have passed like magic in the tea-room to the tune of the bubbling candy over the faithful alcohol-burner. Then in the spring, when the outside world calls to every girl, what could be more fun than to gather up pillows and rugs, and dressed in " middys " and old skirts, sally forth, armed with the eternal chafing-dis h and the accompany- ing paraphernalia, then finding a perfect nook in the shade of the wonderful Normal trees, to spread out the material and waste the entire afternoon, charmed into forgetfulness of class-room worries and tasks by the spell of the woods and the soul-satisfying odor of cooking candy? RIQl A ©abb lEntfrtatna One Sunday at dinner, during the winter term, Mrs. Hawkins came to " Levi ' s " table and invited all of us girls to come over to the dining-hall at (5 P. M. to a little entertainment she had planned for our table and the boys of the club, it being her custom to entertain a table and the boys about once a month. Of course, we were just " tickled to death " and were so excited that we could not finish eating our dinner. Iiumediately we began talking about what we were going to wear, how we were going to do our hair, and discussing various other topics concerning our toilette. At the appointed hour we were all on hand to welcome the young men of the club. The first thing in order was that old game, " clap in and clap out, " the fortunate or unfortunate, as the case might be, who got in the right chair being escorted from the reception room out into the hall to talk. l)e- I ' ghtful music was furnished by different girls at our table. After we had just had a perfectly glorious time playing games, laughing and talking, we were invited to take places at two long, snowy tables, where chicken salad sand- wiches, tea, ice cream and cake were served by Mrs. Hawkins and Miss Messer- schmidt. It was witli reluctance that we bade our charming liostess good-night after having had a most delightful evening.

She was not in an artistic mood, for it was the second day of the new term, and she had not yet settled down to her daily routine. Six smeared landsca])es had l)een dumped into the trasli bag, and the st ' venth was iti the pi-ocess of forma- tion. Gazing languidly into the pan, she concluded the failure of her paint- ings was due to the water ' s lack of clearness. At any rate, this idea offered a means of diversion, for to renew one ' s supj)l3 ' of water meant a trip to the cloakroom. Accordingly, Mary ski])ped from the room and sauntered down the hall. car the tloor of the cloaki ' oom she was accosted by a timid-looking girl, who was strikingly marked as a " freshie. " ' ' Please, could you tell me where that English teacher ' s at. ' ' I can ' t be classified until I take an examination in P]nglish, and I just can ' t find her anywhere. " Mary sa v ample o})portunity for a little fun and deciding on a bold scheme replied, condescendingly, " Miss Moore is not giving examinations toda} ' , but I can take her ])lace in this mat- ter, though I (im rather busy today. " (Mary inwardly thanki ' d her mother for having let her skirts down a few inches the day before.) The girl started slightly on finding she was addressing so important a personage and thanked Mary most graciously. It was agreed that the (jues- tions would be handed to her at the next period, and that siie should wait foi- them in the cloakroom. Mary filled her pan and walked sedately back toward the art room, but once within its ])recincts she was changed from a solemn ' " assistant " to a school girl bubbling over with fun. She sat down (piickly, and, while instructions were being given to new sciiolars by the busy teacher, she composed the examination. As soon as the bell rang for the next ])eriod, Mary made her way to the wait- ing " freshie " and iianded her the (piestions with instructions that she niMst not get an j hfl ) at all from others, on (in (juestion, but would be allowed to write the answers in hei " own room. Again thanks wei ' e given and the grateful girl went awav. She thought secretly of how she would show those Normal teachers that sill- needed no help in English (for that was her strong point and the hope of her career). » ' ] ' he next morning the President sat in his office busily intent upon those many intricate mattei-s which always crowd on him at the opening of each term. Suddenly he heard faltering footsteps apiiroaching and i-ecogni .etl the sound of muffled sobs. T ' pon looking up, he beheld one of the new students, the picture of misery, who grasped in one hand a crumpled paper. " What is the matter .=- " asked Mr. Roy. She lamely extended towards him the paper and wailed, " She s-said I couldn ' t g- et any help and — and — I d-don ' t under-stand ' em and I don ' t know why Lucy turned g-gray ! I never did — w-want to c-come here anyhow, " she finished. Mr. Roy from ex])erience realized that the true situation could not be got from hei so he reached for the questions to see them for himself. The following met his glance: EXAMIXATION FOR IC STUDENT. I. In what year did Scott get married and whatever possessed him. ' II. Why did Ivanhoe and Oliver Twist. ' III. Write a short eUiptical essa} ' on " Why is a Lemon. " I ' .

PratBtng Bdf ila itaguattng 3Fn nba (CLASS EXERCISE.) My roommate, three otlier girls, and I were sitting in m ' room one Satur- day afternoon, sewing and embroidering, when Barbara Vain came busthng in. She is a very st ' hsli looking girl, and we might add the term a self-made girl, judging from the paint, etc., she uses. On that occasion, as usual, before two sentences had been exchanged, she began relating some of the romantic side of her life, which began thus : " Oh, girls, did you sec Jack with me last night? He stood at the entrance and waited for me. He said he wouldn ' t have gone in if I hadn ' t come. He certainly is cute. I know he is the handsomest boy in the school. He says he could love me if he thought it would do him any good. " Then, noticing my embroider} she exclaimed, " Oh, what is that. ' ' Yes, I see it is an api ' on. I used to be crazy about them, but I ' m tired of them now. I embroidered one for a friend of mine, and every one who saw it said it was lovely work. Mannna says I inherited a knack for using a needle. " At this ])oint, seeing that the other girls couldn ' t decide whether to look disgusted or burst into laughter, I changed the subject by asking what they were going to wear to society that night. Barbara answered before any one else had time, " I think I shall wear my graduating dress. Every one said I was the most beautiful girl in the class the night I graduated. Oh, I wish I had brought my gold-handled parasol down here. Fred gave it to me; he is just crazv al)out me, and would have given me a diamond if he had thought that I would have accepted it. But, law! I must go now. Guess the girls over at my room have been blessing me out ever since I ' ve been away. I don ' t care; it is just because they are jealous. So long, girls, I ' ll see you at society tonight ; Jack will be with me, of course. " Thus she left us, and very thankful we were that the visit had not l)een any longer. We knew, of course, that she would stop in several other rooms to advertise her popularity before reaching her own room, where, it nuist be said, she is very sweet and accommodating to her roommates. Debbie Greene, Behold there was a girl who was being entertained royally at the home of her Uncle and Aunt Society. Here were gathered her many friends who did eat and drink and make merry. But the girl did not participate in the pleas- ures of her friends, for she was sorrowful because she felt the Burden of Igno- rance. Now it did happen that the girl did have one friend in whom she con- fided and to M ' hom did disclose the secrets of her soul. So she did tell unto her liow she felt the BiircKii of Ignorance. This good Kvangelist in whom she had confided did give to her the Normal Book, wherein she read about the place where others go to i)e relieved of this Burden. Now she did determine in her heart to go to this place, for the Burden of Ignorance was very grievous unto her. Then she did lay bare unto her Uncle and Aunt the secret of her heart, how she did feel the liurden of Ignorance, and did tell unto them that the desire of her soul was to go to that place where the burden would be removed. This confession brought nuich grief o her T ' ncle and Aunt, for tiny looked forward with eagerness to that winter wlun she would make her debut in tluir c ' ircle of friends. So thev did |)lan inanv great social finictions to try to interest her in society; but she did remain firm in her resolves and dej)arted imini ' diately to make ready for her journey. Now, when she had conii ' unto her Mother and her (irandmother Know- Enough, they made many su|)])licati )ns unto her that she go not away from them. Her (irandmother Know-Knough did say unto her, " I did not have to go on such a wild goose chase to have my burden of ignorance removed. " Her Mother did picture unto her the many lonely hours that this sacrifice would mean to her; but she could in no wise be moved to change her mind. Fri ()l()us, ha iiig heai ' d of Detenniiiation ' s plan, UNkcd Pliable to go with her to persuade Determination not to go. I ' liabli ' made haste to accompany !ier friend and found Determination packing her trunk. l)ct.: " Welcome, friends; have you come to tell me good-bye. ' ' " PH.: " No, but to |)ersuade you not to go. " I)et. : " That cannot be; I can no longer dwell in the City of Ignorance; come and go with me. " Friv. : " What, and leave all our ])leasures behind. ' Why, we ' ll be married before you have your liurden of Ignorance removed. " Det. : " Haj)pier! Why, your liaj)piness is not to be comi)ari(l with that ha})pincss. Come and go with me, for the ha|)|)iness that I attain will be your , too. " PH. : " Oh, Frivolous, let ' s do go ! " Friv. : " Not I; I ' ll be no companion of such misled, cmptv-headcd girls. " On the following day Detennination and Pliable did tell their friends good- bye and start out on their journey. When they first started, the way was smooth, and they were very hap])y. But after they were many miles from home the way became rough and uneven, and they did reel from side to side. Now it did hajipen that the way became so difficult that they fell into the Slough of Despond ( " Doodle " ' wreck). Whereupon Pliable said to Determination: " Is tJii.s the haj)))iness that you told me about. ' ' If I ever live through this night, you will have to go on your journey alone. " Before Detennination had time to answer, they heard a " Honk, Honk, " and Pliable recognized a friend, whom she called and asked to take her home. So away she went and Determination saw her no more. Determination was left to struggle in the Slough of Despond without a friend until Good-Nature, who was on the same journey, came to her assist- ance. Then they again started on their journey together. They went on rejoicing that they had been saved from the Slough of Despond, until they realized that they were exceedingly hungry from the night ' s fast. Just then they heard some one across tlic way making nmch com])laint of being hungry; and at that moment a man who was selling sandwiches appeared. Every one bouglit freely exccj)t Squeeze-the-Eagle, the one who had been making so much complaint. Good-Nature found no pleasure in her feast until she had divided with her. When they were nearing the Wicket Gate (Normal Stile), Fidget began to wring lier hands and hunt up and down through the crowd looking for her lost suit-case. (iood-Nature, seeing her distress, gladly helped her to recover the lost property. When the crowd did arrive at the Wicket Gate, it was opened unto all of them; and they were told to pass immediately to the Interpreter (Matron), where they were dii ' ecte l as to their placi ' of abode. Determination awoke early the next morning becausi ' of the heavy burden that was upon her, and continued her journey. Now the next obstacle that Determination met was that the Shining Ones (Teachers) had to pass judg- ment on her store of knowledge. So they did prepare for her a list of ques- tions. After she had answered them they were returned to her; and as she gazed upon the " Pass, " her Burden fell off from licr shoulders and was never seen again. After this she appeared daily before the Shining Ones who did give unto her many valuable things. The most important of these was a Seroll (First Year Latin), whieh she was bidden to use as a guide. Now, as she continued her journey, she overtook Hluff and I)on " t-( ' are. At this time they were near- ing the Hill of Difficulty ((ieometry). When they had arrived at the foot tliereof they looked about them to see what way they might take. There were three, one to the right, one to the left, and one directly over the hill. The one to the right is called Deceit, and the way to the left is called Destruction. Don ' t-Care turned to the left, which led her into the Dark Mountains, where she fell to rise no more. Bluff ' went to the right, which led her into the Dismal Swamp whence she never found her way. But Determination went straight over the hill. Now it did ha})pen that Determination set her mind so strongly on climbing over this Hill that she forgot her Scroll. So Determina- tion j)assed the Hill of Difficulty and did not miss the Scroll until she met two fierce lions (Casar and Cicero). Then she did think of her Scroll, that would give her direction, and did remember that she had left it at the Hill of Difficulty. So Determination had to turn back to find it; and many days did pass before she had come unto that place again. But when she had read and understood her Scroll, she had no difficulty in passing the lions. Now as Determination traveled on, she met Ignorance making haste to go back. " Whither goest thou. " incjuired Deternnnation. Ignorance: " From the N ' alley of the Shadow of Death. " (Chemistry.) Determination: " What didst thou see that frightened thee so. ' " ' Ignorance: " There is an Knchanted Cave (Chenn ' stry I al)oratory ) through which all nmst pass. In this cave I did hear a continual howling an l veiling as of |)eopli ' in unutterable misery, who did feel the pain of l)urri fi ' om hot explosions from which they found theinseUes unable to escapt ' . . nd I did see clouds of many colored va|)ors which did turn th walls of the cave black. and strangled the peo})Ie therein. " Determination was not dismayed, but pushe l her way onward, and soon found herself on the other side in the Meadow of Ease (Physiography), where she met Spend-Thrift. But this place was very narrow, so they cpiickly pas.sed over it. Now as Determination and Spend-Tlirift did continue on their journey they did conic on " Town Day " unto the town of ' anity (Natchitoches), Avhcrc there is a fair held on Saturday called Vanity Fair. Determination did spend all of her month ' s allowance ; but Spend-Thrift had already spent hers for Hersheys, so she resorted to that method called charging. Then they did pass into a By-way (Drug Store), where they did encounter their beaux, who gallantly escorted them on their return. Now the} ' were taken into custody, and were detained in Doubting Castle (Matron ' s Office), where they were told to pack their trunks and leave. So they did return unto their places of abode where they found their trunks, which they with many tears proceeded to fill. While they were thus engaged Giant Despair (President of the Institution) appeai-ed on the scene and told them that they might stay, but told them that they would be under arrest for the remainder of their sojourn. After so long a time, because of their many promises, the fury of the Giant relaxed, and they were allowed to pass on to the Delectable Mountains (to hear Madame Powell). When they arrived they were met by their beaux with great rejoicing. The next obstacle which she did encounter was a Net (Plan Writing), in which she became entangled. She did struggle desperately until a Shining One (Pedagogy Teacher) did help her out of it. At last Determination did arrive at the turning-))oint of her journey (4- Class) thi-()ugh which she did pass with many honors and did enter into the Enchanted (iround (iB Class). Here she did become the rein-esentative of the Shining Ones. With much rejoicing she did enter in tlie Land of Beulah (Grad- uates ' names are posted). Here they did continually hear the singing of birds and saw every day the flowers a})pear on the earth. In this country the sun shineth night and day ; wherefore this was beyond the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and also out of reach of Giant Despair, neither from this ])lace did they so nmch as have to enter Doubting Castle. Here they were upon the borders of Heaven, where they did meet many Angels (Parish Superintendents) who did give them high positions. Upon the last day of her journey, the king of the land (Governor) presented unto her the Reward (Diploma). Elmira Montgomkry. Dot Overbey. Leoxa Hari ' kr.

The drag and the drone and the earnest worker jostle each other to the tune of Mazurka, while that jolly old Row with the smile of a joker slides out at dayhi ' eak like some finished old toper; and, while we rush and berate our neighbors, he is quietly snoozing and resting from labors. The evening approaches and peace is restored, and smiles and gay laughter come once more on board; the hours of twilight so redolent of love nestle about us like gifts from above; v dance and we shout in unbounded joy, for work is a bubble and tlu ' earth but a toy. But what is that sound so startling and clear, that freezes the smile as it reaches the ear. ' ' Yes, ' tis the same old mischievous din, that tells us the Row is at it again, and away we go on the wings of the wind to escape a lecture if we don ' t get in. We dive through the doorway, we dip in the texts, we float on the surface, and search for what ' s next ; we tloinider and fumble, and in wild desperation, we seek out the facts that shall prove our salvation. At last wt- are armed and n-ady for battle, and no longer feel ' ' liki ' dumb driven cattle. " Then out on the campus there floats up a clattir, and that blessid old Row goes by with a patter. A moment of silence, then out on the air float the ringing vibrations that tell us he ' s there. Then instantly darkness envelopes each head, and we hastily make one last dive into bed. Mus.

The town was then prominent, as Red River flowed ])ast it, and in those (lays trading was carried on by boat. Judge Clias. Bullard, a New Englandcr, and the owner of this handsome resi- dence, accjuired a large plantation and many slayes. He married a pretty Creole girl from Natchitoches, the daughter of a fine old family, and it was here that they lived for many years. The liullards were prominent in the social life of the vicinity, and enter- tained often, inviting many guest.s to their gay jjarties. ' I ' hey often left their liome in summer to travel by carriage and wagon, with their slaves in attendance, on a visit to White Sulphur Springs. Va., or even as far as New Kngland. At length they began to lose money, and when, after more tlum a score of years. Judge Bullard dii d, his wife closed u}) the house and moved to town. About this time (18.5(5), the sistirs of the " Sacred Ih ' art " came to Natchi- toches and bought the old site, with one hundred acres of woodland adjoining. Here they erected the Convent Building, in .March. 1858. and established a boarding school for girls. The school grew modei ' atcl v in lunnbii-N. soon bi ' coming iirosjxrous. Daily those gi ' iitle sisteis might ha e been seen attending early mass in the southern room of the Convent Building, where their pupils filed in to service, black veils thrown over their heads. At eight o ' clock school opened, and tlu ' pu|)ils |)assed to their classes, to be (piestioned consecu- tively concerning their assignments. .Many a childish heart, light with mischief, felt no undue restraint, for discipline was mild, and consisted more in depriva- tion of pleasures than the infliction of punishments. .V t went v-minute recess was given at ten. . t noon the pupils sat siK ' ntly eating in the ri-fectorv. the northwest I ' oom of the Convent IJuiiding. Some one read a xlection to them, to which they listened at tent i ily. . t one o ' clock school began again, intei ' - fef . 1 rupted only by a twent ' -minute recess, and lasting until five-thirty in the after- noon. Saturdays were school days, too. One day every month they were taken to the woods as a diversion. On this day each child received perhaps a double handful of pecans and some sugar-cane as lunch. In this way the years passed on peacefully until the Civil War. At one time A. L. Lee ' s army being in towii (across the river), and Banks ' army being on the other side, the Convent was the scene of some slight disturbances due to skirmishing. After the Battle of Pleasant Hill, the Donoho Building, which had been used as Community prop- erty, was turned into a hospital for the wounded men of Taylor ' s army. It had been built as a home, and used as such. It had contained the reception room and the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin, on the first floor, and the nuns ' sleeping quarters on the second floor; then it was used as a hospital. During the years that followed the war, the number of pupils diminished, and the nuns grew poorer. They borrowed money to keep up the school, and finally in 1872 ( ' 73?) they closed the school and moved to New Orleans, where they estab- lished the present " Sacred Heart Convent. " The Parish of Natchitoches bought this ])ro])erty and donated it to the State as a site for the Normal School, in 188-i. In the years intervening between the abandonment by the nuns and the establishment of the Normal School, the place had grown quite wild with under- brush, though the old Convent Building was occasionally occupied by some roving people. But the entire place was closed up and prepared, prior to the opening of the Normal. Dr. Sheib, with the assistance of Mr. Alby Smith and Miss Nettie Rousseau, began work in the Normal School in the fall of ' 8.5. The Normal School took up the education of the youth u])()n his having completed the eighth grade, and carried him on tiirough a course a])])roximating our teachers ' training course, though their curriculum was considerably lower than our present one. Their Model School consisted only of the first four grades, the other pupils of })ublic school age attending a (irammar School down town in what is now called the Rest Room and Rex Club. With the beginning of the school the Donoho Building became the residence of the matron of the Normal School. Mrs. Buard and Mrs. Hatcli served their turn, and then came Mrs. Donoho, for whom the building was ever after called. With her snow-white hair, her beauty and refinement, Mrs. Donoho made that old home like a second one to those earlier Normal girls. They sought her as a nurse in illness, and a friend when in trouble. To her they looked for ai)proval when thty passed, and for synipatliy when they failed. With the passing of tliat motherly face came Mrs. Lobdell, a handsome woman, equally well-loved. But although the girls came to her with their trials as before, she meant less to each individual girl, because the Normal School had grown to be too large a family for intimate personal relations. The same shrubs adorned tlie lawn, tlie same cedar trees were there, and the entertainments given at night were as gay as others had been, but the larger crowd was swayed by the tide of a new decade, and with the new life came a diflf ' erent spirit. Kast and West Halls had been built and were peopled with a restless throng of schoolgirls, earnest young girls who have since con- tributed their ))art to the stability of the teaching force in our State. In the spring of 1904 the old Convent Building was condennied and removed. In its ])lace the present Academic Building was built. This was but the begiiuiing of the brick and concrete buildings that will eventually re[)lace all of the wooden one.s. One mav see how such a movement a fraught with great importance. I ater, Mrs. Loixlell was succeeded by Mrs. Hawkins, our present matron. Ijike her predecessors she is all graciousness. In 1911, during Mr. AswelTs presidencv, the ])resent Dining-room Building was erected, and thitlur the matrons " (juarters were removed. Since that time two l)rick and concrete dor- mitories, " A " and ' B, " have been built. These, with the dining-room, are several hundred yards back from the brow of the iiill, northwest of the Academic Building, and face an o))en court, around wiiich the future Normal will be located. Thus the life of the school, at fii " st centered on the bank of tlu ' long- drv river bed, is gradually needing to more secure grounds farther back. The old Doiioho Building stood long in need of repairs. For a few terms it was used as a dormitorv, and then, in the fall of lt)l. " }, almost ten years since the Convent Building had been torn down, it. too. was removed. Still facing that old ijed where once Red Kiver flowed, greeting the morning as it rises, stands these four colunms, the last that is left of the beloved Donoho Building, and the earliir Normal Sc-hool. Oi. Do r ()vi:i( iti:v. A Nnrmal iFatrji tnrg Oiu-c u])()n a time tlioro lived in the fair land of Normal Hill, a prince of noble mien, and he was wondrous wise, knowing all the workings of his realm and all the motives of his peoj)le. In truth, he was far wiser than all of his teachers wlio had come from far and near to instruct him. But nothing could they teach him, he was that wise. Therefore, it would seem that this prince would have been the ha]){)iest of young men, and for many years he was, in i ncjwuig that lie kuezc. But after a wliile his jjcople grew weary of whispering how wise was this jirince and talked of other things, so that at last that flattery that was as nectar to his mind was slowly withdrawn, and he was left witli only his wisdom to comfort him. But wisdom is a sorry comforter to some if no one praises it. Therefore, tiiere came a time in the s])ring of his twenty-third year when he could bear his isolation no longer, so, seating himself upon a marble couch he buried his face in his hands and wept as only the young and wise can weep: " Oh, if there were only a fair maiden who would love me and tell me of her love and admiration at all times ; then I would be content. " Suddenly before his astonished vision there appeared a tall and dignified woman, clad in a gown of rich, clinging lavender silk. Her face was stern, yet in her eves there was that baffling, mysterious, half-cynical, half-mirthful ex- pression so rare and vet so magnetic in woman. Here at last was his fairy godmother, who had been waiting for many moons to come to his aid, as soon as he would confess his need for something beyond himself. Seeing his discon- certed expression, siie sjjoke soothingly in a deep, melodious voice: ' ' Mv son, long have I waited for you to cry out your need, that I might come and bring v " u comfort. Knowing all that is in the air, within the water, and upon the land, I see the clear path to your salvation. A part of my secret I shall reveal to you, and you nuist guard it as you do your life, for, if it be known, the charm is broken. " In mv domain (Dormitory) there are many beautiful maidens, and among them there is the one for whom you cried out a moment ago. In know- ing all, I know this to be true. However, it is not given me to send her to you direct, for you must discover her for yourself. Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you. Tomorrow morning when you go to school, look you well for the maid who wears a red bow upon her breast. Further I may not tell you now. " And so ,siiyiii r the f.iirv odinotlRi- vaiiislicd ;i Middriilv hn 1r ' had come. Ranial, for that was the ]jn ' iKH ' .s iiaiiRs i-uhhod his eves. Had he been dreaming. ' ' Surely not ! Then tliere arose in liini a fierce desire for the mor- row, and it seemed that he could .scarcely restrain himself until time for .school. Slowly time passed, until the next morning when he hastened to his classes. Anxiously he scanned all the groujjs of gav maidens for the sight of one with a red bow pinned on her breast. Alas! uttei confusion and bewilderment over- whelmed him I There were (lo::eus of maidens wearing I ' l ' d bows. . lthough he looked most carefidly all the morning, bv noon he had bicn able to find nothing that would distinguish one from anotlui ' . So seating himsi ' lf again on the marble couch, he cried out for his fairy godmother to come to his aid. At once she again t )o(l before him. ri ' splendent in her purple robes. She. smiling. s|)oke: " He not discouraged, fair Hamal. Bo of good cheer. Look again thi.s afteriu)on, and there will be but one nuiiden wearing the red bow. ' i ' his is she, Nolal, for whom vou long. " So Hamal arose, filled with new hope and e. pectancv, and betook himself back to school, resuming his search. This time, although he looked everywhere, there .seemed no evidence of a maid with a red bow. Late in the evening he was still wandering about, peering this way and that, almost ho])eless. Suddenlv he i-ounded a curve of tlu- castle ( Academic Building), and tlure. close to him. was Nolal, tlu ' incarnation of all his dreams, for was not the glowing bit of color pinned above lur heart, the ure and unfail- ing symbol of the fulfillment of his fairv godmother " pr()|)hecy . ' Kamal and Xolal stopped, and gazed into each other ' s eyes. " No sooner met but thev looked; no sooner looked i)ut they loved; no soonei " loved but they sighi ' d ; no sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason; no sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy. " It would be rather presumptuous for the author to ind this true fairy storv. since the climax has not been reached in real life. However, it may be 1(1 1 to the discretion of the gentle reader, in accoi " dance with his past experience in fairv tales, to end this stoi " ' to hi own at i lact ion iii the good old wav. K All: (losi.iNc:. A iFatrg g tnrg (Class Exercise.) One lirij lit ijiring iiioniing, hearing some l)eaiitifvil niiisic and feeling a delightful arinth stealing througli my veins, I sat np in my bed to see what was hap])ening. You would scarcely l)elieve n:e if I slioukl tell you that I was in Fairyland. I knew it must be Fairyland for it was like the beautiful places that mother used to tell me about when I was little and begged for stories. But I did not think any jilace coukl ever be so beautifid as this. I almost lost my breath when I ran out into the l)right light. It was the smile of the fairy queen that sent me datu-ing among the diamonds. How tliey glowed and sparkled from everywhere. I thought I should burst with joy. I was just wondering what I slioidd do first, when I felt a liglit toucli on my shoulder. Looking around (jnickly, 1 was astonished to sec one of the dain- tiest of fairies jieeping at me from a large diamond susjiended over my head. Her face w is dimpled with glee when she beheld my look of surprise. " Good nu rning, " stie said gaily, " how do you like Fairyland? " I was almost afraid to s})eak for fear she would vanish. " Oh, you big stu]3id, " she cried again, " hold up your cuj). I know you are starving for a drink. This is the nectar that fairies brew. Sip a little at a time and you shall never know want. " I held my cup as high as I could, and she filled it with a li(iuid as clear and pure aiul s]iarkling ivs the diamond u))on which she swung. I lifted the en]) to my lips, and, as I sipped the nectar, the foiuitaiTi of living waters seemed to spring up witliin me. " Look, " slie cried again, ijoint- ing to a stream of tiny elves rnnning along tlie ground at mv feet, " the fairy cjueen is pleased and sends these to serve you. Do not fear to take what ttiey offer. It will make ycni wax strong and vigorous, and you shall I ' e al)le to l)attle w itli evil and to overcome vour eiu ' inies. " I did not refuse the nourishment, for I feared to offend the fairy queen. When I had partaken of the food, 1 leaped for joy, for eternal life was born into my veins, aiul I knew that they had given me immortality. But the lovely little being stood by and viewed the jierfornumce with much deliglit. " Oh, you gourmand, " slie cried merrily, " wait till the fairies are tlirougli with you, and men shall rise ]i and call you lilessed. " She clapped licr dainty hands and innuedi- ately I was surrounded l)y a band of fairies dressed in daintiest gauze of emerald green. They danced aliout me for a while. Then tiie leader ])aused and addressed me: " We are the chlorophyl fairies, and tlic (|iieen has sent us to nuikc a suit for you. " Tlieii they joined hands and danced around me again, singing gaily: " Servants of the (juecn arc we. On the land aiul on the sea, Claily serving, freely loving .VU of fairies " love deserving. " I wanted to laugh, but grew so that in spite of myself I dro|)i)ed off to sleej). I did not sleep long, but when I awoke I found myself clad in a most beautiful robe of green. " How do you like it? " tlicy inquired, seeing uu ' looking at it. " It is beautiful, thank yon, " I said. " Now nuiy I come out into the sunshine and play with you? " " Of course you may, Iccjiy head, and if you arc not good we shall ride on your ba ' k aTuI jiull your hair, just as the witches do. " All suuuner I ])layed with the fairies and the Sun God coming np one day looked down ui)on ns ami smiled. " It is well; " he said, " the birds of the air aiul the beasts of the (ield shall have aluindance. " " Now, we shall take you to the (pieen that she may see our work, " but scarcely had they finished speaking when the ((iieen stood before us. " You liave done well, my cliildren, and the (luecn ' s blessing shall rest u])on the work of your hands. This tiny biineh of grass shall thrive and grow and i-artli shall c er be clothed with li ing green, and man sliall find joy and happiness in her bosom.

At la t Saturday morning- lami ' . and the little Wigginscs were u]) brifjlit and early for they had never had their |)ictures made, and lach imafjined it nuist be about as grand a thing as could ha|)piii to any person. Mrs. Wiggins didn ' t enjoy the preparation as much as the children, foi ' nothing seemed to go i-ight that morning. Sally complained of a headache: Ml-. Wiggins had rheumatism in his right shouldir, and. in spite of all thi- threatenings, Mrs. Wiggins coitldn ' t in an «av induce Tub and ' I ' omiiiy to eat anv breakfast. , fler the others had linished bnakfast. .Mis. Wiggins began to array the brigade in the r best clotlus. She put Jenny .May and Susie on the front steps, aftir braiding their hair as lii ht as it could possiiijy be without pulling their .scalps from their heads, and pinning their ruliles in place, to wait for the rest. All this time Sallv was displaving her strength and skill on Tub and Tommy. . fler a while two small bo s joined ,leiiii .Ma ami Susie on the front steps with faces as red and shining as dune apples. Of course, as Mrs. Wig- gins said. " Tub niver did let the little gals have any jKaci, " so, after a slight disagreement with Susie, he stepped boldix in fi-oiit of her and brushed her face with a wit feather that he had just rubbed against the side of the wash-|iot. Susie fairly scTciuiicd witli ra c. but Mrs. Wiggins had no time to j)unisli Tub then. Finally after a great deal of hurrying and seoldiiig by Mr. Wiggins, tliev were all in the wagon; ] [r. and Irs. Yiggiiis and little I ' ete on the front seat: Sail} ' in her seat directly behind: the l)()ys perched on the corners of the cot- ton; Jenny May and Susie bringing up the rear by taking it flat in the bottom of the wagon on a thin bed-quilt. The horses went at a snail psice except, of course. « hen going down liill. Then they went so fast Sally had to hold her hat with one hand and the back of the s})ring-seat with the other. ' I ' lie boys seemed to enjoy the hills im- mensely, but I can ' t say as much for Jenny May and Susie. After nine miles of slow driying and hills, they at last reached Wentworth. Such a parade the merchants of Ventworth had never seen. Mr. Wiggins led the procession with a brown derby, which seemed a heavy burden to his large ears, with coat sleeves too short, and the coat itself sagging fully six inches in front in spite of the lining, making it a great deal longer in the back, with trousers bagging at the knees, and his large, scjueaky shoes seeming to stumble oyer every one ' s feet. Mrs. Wiggins and Sally came next, and the other children followed as they ])leased. As they passed the baker ' s shoj). Tub spied a display of cakes which were decorated with many-coloi-ed icings. It iHinindt ' d him at once that he had had no breakfast and of course was very hungry. . s soon as he called Tommy ' s attention to it, they both set up a wail for the cakes. ' I ' o keep from having a serious dealing with her two sons, Mrs. Wiggins dug into her satchel for fifty cents. After giving each a large |)iece of cake, she insisted that they should rusli on to the ])hotogra|)her ' s before the boys got their faces and blouses soiled. ' hen they at last reached the " picture-taking |)laci ' , " as Tul) called it, there was nuich fussing and disagreeing between Mi ' s. Wiggins and the photog- ra|)lKr. When the family had seated themseh cs, looking as wild-eyed and grim as |)ossible. and the |)hotograplier had arranged them to suit himself. Tommy II juiii])e(l u]) ami said: " blister, may I scjuffZL ' tliat thiii r? " ' i ' lif photcjirrapli ' T explained to liiiii that if he (hd lie would not be in tln ' ])icture, and. of course, he wanted to be, but would not be still until lie had the ])roniise of some eai.dv. Just as tlie photographer was ready to take the picture, Mrs. Wiggins looked around to see if all the children were in their places, and to her dismay saw Tub with his liandkerchief in his mouth to keep from laugliing. Then the photogra- |)iiei- said in an exasperated tone: ' Mrs. AViggins. if vou will pli ' ase ki ' ep (|uiet yourself, I will handle the children. " Mrs. Wiggins frowned and the two younger children, seeing that their mother had been made angry, began to cry. Al)out that time a policeman, a good friend of the photographer ' s, dropped in for a few minutes " chat. At the sight of the policeman, tlu ' Wigginses were frightened into submission, and in a few minutes the jiictuie had been taken. The remainder of the day was s|)eiit in sightseeing. .Xbout sundown they climbed into the wagon and started home. When they were about three miles from town, Tonnny asked where Tub was. Irs. Wiggins became very excited and said: Sho ' s as Tub went with us he ain ' t with us now. " They turned around and after going ai)()ut two miles, tliev met Tub almost ri ' ady to drop. He had run so fast and clled so loud, he had usi d up all the energy tlu ' cakf had afforded him. As thev faced home again, small drops of rain began to fall. Jenny May and Susie dicbi ' t enjov their ridi ' so will now because .Mr . N iggins had taken the (piilt to wrap the babv in. When tluy reached home the rain w;i im| ly pouring and thev were completely dreiichid. .Mix.

" JInlmutr ' (CLASS EXERCISE.) Little Helen Green, otherwise known by her playmates and i)arents as " Johnnie " beea.usc she was always acting the part of a bov, and there wore no boys in the family, had been a pu|)il of the primary school only a week, when the happiness of her first week of school life was clouded by the following incident. On Friday morning when the cliildreii were (juietly studying and engaged in their l)usy work, the teacher, who was haying the B Class in reading, sud- denly called out, " Johnnie, I wish you to remain after school this evening. I cannot y)ermit such behayior. " ,Tohmiie " s playmates looked at her in surprise. What could she have been doing. ' ' But there sat " Johnnie " in her seat, blusiiing and trying to hide her head in shame. Was it such misbehayior only to ])ee)) at the big red a])ple in lier book-satchel. ' ' Yet tliat was all she had done, and the teacher wanted her to remain after school. She was too ashamed and afraid to raise her head, but when she did so she saw the teacher glance with a i ' rown in her direction. The long, miserable morning ])assed at last and noon came. " .lohnnie " went slowly home feeling deeply her disgrace. She said nothing of it to her mother, who did not notice her little daughter ' s unhap|)y state. After lunch " Johnnie " returned to school and slipping past her ))laymates went in and sat down at her desk. She did not notice the boy who sat behind her sneak into his desk as if he also were ti ' ving to avoid the others. Soon school had taken in, and " Jolninic " buried lierself behind her books. She thought the afternoon would never pass. At last it was two o ' clock and time to be dismissed. The others passed out, and " dohnnie " by this time not being able to koej) back lier tears, began to sob at her desk. She was wait- ing for her punishment when she heard the voice of her teacher saying sternly: " Johnnie Hamilton, I saw vou t In-owing |)apei- balls this morning. If this hap- ])ens again, I will j)unish you sevi rely. Promise me you will not do it again. " She looked u]) and saw standing at the teacher ' s desk the boy who sat l)(liiM(l her.

A cold wind was blowing from off North River, which would have pierced to tin hone any Ifite ])asserby, had there been anyone there, but which onlv lu-tird the tattered sifrns tacked upon the outlying walls of vacant lots and upon the posts of the (]uay. There was no moon, and the only lif ht was that from the dim lights on the (|uay, which, as the wind blew, sent pale rays into the deip shadows. It was a night upon which all good })e()ple should be at home asleep, well content with having doru ' their duties for the day. liut presentlv fi " om out of the shadows came a woman, clot lied m I ' ags. which the cold wind whipped about her person. Her head was bent, and she walked with a hesitating moM ' ment. As she came lu-arer the wharf within the radius of the |)ale lam|)s, she seemed to shrink and to w to hide herself. Her white face showed the marks of sin, with now a sort of weak determinatioM. . - she neared the end of the wharf, which projected out over the water, she glanced to the right and to the left of her, as a culprit does who is about to commit some crime, and then again she glanced out upon the cold, dark waters, and shivered.

A iKfmnni oil, how well do 1 remember, It was early in December. And the dull clouds of November Scarce had left the wintry skv : When a hasty consultation And the family ' s complication Brought a bout this culmination : I my home folks told good-bye. To the Normal I was going. Thinking I was wise and knowing. And I could not keep from siiowing That I had the High Scliool passed ; But, before the first week ended, I had almost comprehended That the others who attended, In the race were winning fast. When the first report was nearing. I my lesson had been clearing With no teacher interfering. So I did assume no care; But I ' ll ne ' er forget the weeping. And the nights so void of sleeping. When, from my first ' " Slip " was peeping — Not one subject — but a pair I As I think back o ' er those liours, I forget to see life ' s flowers ; All my many doleful showers Of the " Blues " around me stay ; Many were my heartaches drearfu!. Many times my eyes were tearful.

Alfobu. ,1 Sltr i om of ISumaur Truly it Mas a wonder-day. Rose Mary felt this vaguely all day as she went about to classes and the other common])laces of life; and it welled up in her suddenly once or twice when she caught glimpses of the wondrous violet and browns, and silvery greens of the old elms of the cemetery, and the fields beyond the lake. It was the middle of March, and though the budding trees and pale violets were flaunting) v jn-oclaiming Spring ' s coming, there was a soft, still coolness like tlie dying breath of Winter, wafting lightly about. Rose Mar ' did not jjarticularly mark the beauty of the day — it was like so niany of those days of soft, wistful color that come in early Spring. Indeed, slie thought it a little cold for comfort ; but Rose Mary, being human and a girl, felt that this was one of the days designed l)y the fates whose es])ccial duty it is to look after the heart-interests of maidens for " something to hap- pen. " She had felt it when she first looked out at tlie rose and saffron sky in the early morning, and it had grown upon her since. It gave her a new kind of self-esteem. She regarded herself, as it were, from a distance, as she might have regarded the heroine of one of her favorite novels, and she felt that she ' .vas a very interesting ])erson, ca{)able of meeting any romantic situation in the most graceful way and with the choicest collection of fine sentiments and fitting words. And she knew tiiat the romantic situation woidd present itself presently. What it was exactly or how it could happen at the Normal she did not trouble herself to inquire : but surely it would hapjien, and maybe — maybe the knight, the real true, ])articular, personal knight, who had been made and fashioned bv the Creator, witli an eye on Rose Mary as the ultimate consumer, and whom Rose Mary had been waiting for since she was twelve (for have I not said that Rose Mary was human and a girl. ' ' ), would come, all booted and spurred, in a plumed helmet! Diinier time came without a trace of the " happening " having hap| ened ; but Rose Mary was far from des])air. It was not too late to hope until the last light bell rang and even after that tiiere was a chance of dreaming a romantic dream ! " Rose Mary, ])lease ronw with me to practice tonight. I have to practice on the piano uj) in the old cliemistry hihoratory, and it ' s so dark and high up it scares mi ' . The balcony is nearly always open and the auditorium is so dark and big and empty it h)oks as I imagine space wouhl if one fell off of the earlh at night. " Rose Marv did not allow it to be sofii tluit tliis was a new lease on the ho])e of the romantic- happeninnf. She looked calinlv at .lean from the heifjht of a lieroine of romance. " Well, ' " she replied languidly, ' ' I ' d just as soon as not. ( " all me when the first study bell rings. " In her own room Rose Mary began to take clothes from her locker in her search for " something to put on. " " Are you going to dress again? " asked hei- room-mate in mild astonish- ment. " Yes. " " Arc you going somewhere. ' ' " " Xot exactly, " replied Rose .Mary evasively. The loom-mate was " s(iuelched. " Rose Mary selected an old di ' ess. old-fashioned as to maki ' . and slightlv worn : hut it was of a svjft, sliinrmciing ti ' xture, and when she shook it out a faint scent as of old jjressed rose lea es came faintlv from the creamv fohls. It closed cart ' ssinglv about hi ' r white throat liki ' the petals of a flower, and tin- unfashionably wide skiit hung in many folds to lur slender ankles, liose Mary, in the old cream gown, with her happy young face and its light of e.Npi ' ctancv and dreamy roniiuice, made a charming picture. She felt ready for the woiidei ' e (iit this day would bring, and when she heard .lean calling she slipped into hci ' coal and went oil ' smiling, lea iiig an Indignant room-mate. In the old chemistry lal)orafoi-y .lean sat tluun|)ing the piano, and Kose Marv, with a sudden excitement, remembered the old unused stone bali-ony outside llie windows. (lathering u|) the xolumiiioiis skirl of her gown, he nimbly climbed into the balcony. The massive stone balustrade. Rose Mary thought, was as it shouhl be. 1, caning on it in the full moonlight, slu- waited breathlessly: NotC it was bound to happen! Here was the perfect scene, and here was slii ' waituig on the high balconx onl the lo er was wantnig. The moonlight lav soft and light across the far field and woods, it glisti ' iied on the narrow, winding lake, it |)icke(l out litth- torches of white light among the dark spinev leaves of the juniper t I ' cc ju- l beyond Ihe balcoriN. and lay broad and fair on the grass and walks below, except x here the dappled shadows danced to the wind ' s song. In the fair stillness suddenly a deep, soft chord of music rose from some- where below, and Rose Mary trembled. Then, softly, richly, a full baritone voice raised in a fine old love song — " From the desert I come to thee On my Arab shod witli fire, And the vinds are left behind In the speed of my desire. Under thy window I stand, And tlie midnight hears my cry, I love thee ! I love but thee ! With a love that shall not die ! " Wliat if it was only one of the school boys practicing down on the first floor . For Rose Mary it was the plumed knight under the balcony ! Rose Mary and Jean Avent back across the moonlit campus hand in hand as the sclioolgirl fashion is. Rose Mary said: " It has been a perfect day — and a perfect hour !

Resolved: That the Club Girls should a])|)ro])riate iiionev in tlu ' ir respective dormitories to purchase a cage lined with cotton-batting to hi ' used as a safe and (juict receptacle for their respective matrons during studv- hour. INTRODUCTION. I. Origin: A. Too much time is wasted by girls dodging the matron in their visits during study hours, when they should ])ursue their way unmolested. B. The matron spends too much valuable time in trying to establish sQch conditions as to make Mr. Row think that the (juiet of the tomb has envelo])ed the dormitories and go home thinking his troubles are over. II. ' I ' lu ' leading facts in the history of this (juestion are as follows: A. The (|uestion began in the ])rehistoric ages of the Normal. IJ. It developed gradually through the dark ages. C. It is being agitated in this enlightened age, on account of the increasing numbers of the o|)j)ressed, and the declining health of the oj)i ' ressors. (We have noticed how thin some of the matrons are getting.) III. Definition of terms : A. In this discussion the term " cage " shall bi taken to mean a large wooden box well luatcd. and ventilated by a pip ' «xtending far out enough in the campus to be beyond tlu ' sound of the (piiet ( . ' ' ) of the dormitories. li. The ti ' rms " ap})ropriati ' money " shall be taken to mean that I ' ach girl in each respective dormitory shall pay just enough to furnish a sum of money barely sufficient to buy the wooden box, i»i|)e. and cotton-batting, and have them ))ut together, with a strong pad lock on I he door. 1 . ' i ' he affirmative corteiids that: ( " . It will raise the standards A. It is just to: of the school: 1. Matron. 1. Socially. 2. Girls. ' 2. rhysically. B. It is the best method. .■{. llducationall v. 1 V. The negative contends that: A. It is just neither to: 1. Matron. 2. Girls. B. It is not the best method. C. It will not raise the stand- ards of the school : 1. Socially. 2. Physically. 3. Educationally. VI. From this clash of contentions PROOF: Affirmative. I. It is just: A. To the matron, for 1. By cutting off the sounds of the dis- turbance, it would do away with the strain on the ears, thus pre- venting the expense of purchasing an ear-trumpet in later years. 2. It would give her an opportunity for quiet and undisturbed contempla- tion of her faults, for (a) She would not have to clap her hands every ten minutes. B. To the girls, for 1. They Mould have perfect liberty of (a) Action. (b) Speech. 2. It is not well tliat two young girls should be togetliei- alone for any length of time. II. It is the best method for: A. (Refutation) Although thr lu ' gutive con- tend that it would be better to do away with the matrons ultogctlier, this is unreasonable, foi ' the following .iiiiin i SSIK arise : A. Is it just to: 1. Matrons ? 2. Girls? B. Is it the best methot ' r C. Will it raise the stan( Ian of the school : 1. 2. 3. Socially? Physically ? Educationally? " An ounce of preven- tion is worth a pound of cure. " Patrick Henry: " Give me liberty or give me death. " Mr. Claman: " Gang instincts should be encouraged. " 1. " V. L. " said " Let there be matrons, " and there were matrons. 2. It would result in the breaking of the matron ' s heart at parting with " ' i ' " " ' 1 ' " ' ' • ' " " the beloved girls. B. We admit that a more elaborately con- structed cage might be constructed for a larger sum of money, but .„„„.n sa,n and Nor- 1. The sum of money at the disposal n " : " ' fruit sliop as to pro- . ,1 .• " ' , ., ■ . (•(•(■(Is oil Ilcrslicvs. oi tlie respective donnirories is limited, for (ii) The girls find many other uses for their funds besides pur- chasing cages for matrons. 2. The more elaborate construction would not add to the comfort and convenience of the cage as defined, but (a) That would only make the ex- terior more ])leasing to the mule fine birds. " eye. III. It would raise the staiidaicis of the school. A. Socially, for 1. It would promote social intercourse, for (a) It would offer an opportuiilt v for i.leasant little no,)-calls. " " Kat drink, and Ik- ' ' ■ incrn, lor lomornnv you (b) It would sanction (Iclcctnbic may die. " little feasts. (c) Kncourage the study of eti- (juette at formal gat licring.s, B. rhysically, for 1. It woultl gi e an opportunity for the exercise of the muscles of the body from six-thirty IV M. to ninc- thirtv P. IM., for " Fine featliers never (a) The girls could skate up and down the hall. (b) Slide down the banisters. (c) Roll down the stairs to reduce. (d) Dance in the corridors. (e) Swim in the batlitub. C. Educationally, for 1 . It would permit an interchange of ideas. 2. It would promote good habits of stud} for (a) It would train in acting out all theories learned in text, for (x) All literary, historical, scientific, and mathe- matical facts could be dramatized and acted out before an a2:)pre- ciative audience, (y) The j ' ' ' ' tice teachers could ])ractice lessons on pillows, old shoes, etc. " Cleanliness godliness. " is next to " Tvvo heads are better than one, even though both are boneheads. " " Practice makes per- fect. " CONCLUSION. I. Since to cage the matrons is just to said matrons and girls; II. Since the method as defined is best ; III. Since it would raise the standard of the school socially, ])hysically, and educationally ; Therefore, the res])ective donnitories sliouid ajtpropriate money to ])urchase a cage lined with cotton-batting in which to keej) their respective matrons during study hour.

" Of course, it is wrong for hoys, especially such fine young www as y )u. to ' play hookey ' from the ilormilory; surely, you should hetter realize the dig- nity of the jH silions which you will s(M)n hold, " and other similar remarks were made l v the speaker. Never did an orator have lietter attention from an audience than did .Mr. K»)y, even though for some reaxin or other it sj-emed that the ground was more attractive than was Mr. Koy. Now, gentle reader, I leave the same question with you that has rankled in the mind of every girl at the Nonnal — Were the young men as channed to meet Mr. Roy in the shade of tin; lonesome j)inc as tlie lovelorn lover in the ballad to meet his " June " r iBrni atlt tlte Ilnu Hom pn ' Twas Monday noon at cliapcl, .Mr. Uov Announced, " Beneath the Lonesome Pine tonight, I wish to see eaeli dormitory boy Wlio did attend the show last Saturday night.

" Already six, yet no friend Roy, " said Speck. " What is the dif ? " replied another boy. " If " — but, before he further words could speak, Behold! right there was standing Mr. Roy. " A synod fine of very gods, " he said. And this most strange, in such a ha])py tone Of voice, the very Pine, but now so sad, Breatiied its relief, and tlnis tiiey heard him speak: " Peace ho! Be patient till the last. Come near, Tliat you may better hear me for my cause. Awake your sense that you may better pledge — But (J, can I begin to state the cause? No, I ' m too sad and (iisap|)ointed now. To know this institution tluis has been Dishonored, wounded and offended ! Oh, Tlic laws and regulations trampled ()n ! " Now, if there ' s one in this assemi)ly who Should ask me why I think he disobeyed The rules and regidation of our school, I answer him and say it is because You walked from out our trusty band last night. And went to see some eonnnon little show In town without jiermission. O, my friends! O students, what a grievous fault is yours! My heart is wounded by your negligence. You nuist remember to obey our rules. Be not afraid to ask for what you want. Yon know I ' ll grant whate ' er is best for you. " In silence there they heard him witii lowered heads. He said, " (jood night! " to all the four and nine; He closed the gate and left them standing there, To grieve and sigh beneath the Lonesome Pine.

We teach 3 ' ou the value of better hogs, calves, horses, etc., and how to raise them. " G. W. : " Wall, it strikes me our hogs is good ernough. We alius had enough ter have ham for breakfast every Sunday morning, and as for cows, why maw makes ten pounds er butter every week just offen old Pied an ' Molly, and ole Bill ' s ther best saddle boss in the country, and him and ole Jack can pull two bales of cotton any day. " IMr. B. : " But here, my boy, we teach you how to farm. Here 3 ou will ha e a garden of your own and we will teach you how to work it. " G. W. : " Teach me how to work a garden ! Why, m_v lands ! as many times as I ' ve worked in maw ' s garden, do you think I can ' t even bust clods. Why, Miss So])hia even had a garden over to the school house, and I iiad to tend the whole thing. Oh, yes! that reminds me of something. Miss Sophia gived me a letter for some teacher. Olu yes, ' Mr. Butcman. ' Is that ' our name. ' " ' Mr. B: " Yes, that ' s my name. " G.

" Mr. B. : " Well, George Washington, this is a letter asking me to do what I think is best for you, and by all means to have you take the rural course. " G. W.: " What! Miss Sophia Avants me to sell ole Bill and Molly and Vied! Why, what would maw and paw say.

In the course of human events, every one and every thing has its trials and setbacks, but when a " plague " is mentioned, one ' s thoughts turn innnedi- atcly to the past — to the time of Pharaoh — when the ten j)lagues swe])t over ICgvpt. It is hard to believe that a succession of ])higues could occur in modern limes. It is true, nevertheless, for six plagues have })assed ovei- our Institution of Ijcarning, and — but read the following chronicles and see for yourself. PLAGUE NO. 1 . Beads! Bkads!! BEADS!!! Every one nuist wear beads. So girls on Normal Hill, always ready to follow the dictates of Dame Fashion, scratched their heads and thought of new, original beads. At last one young Edison hit upon wliat is known as the " China-Bali Beads. " Sad indeed is the tale of tlie siege of the china-ball tret ' , and beads of all shades and hues were finally made r ' ' • . ! masmjM: ssssB!:22z:z:2:sz2:ss : ' MS ' sMi with care and skill, and worn with reat ])ri(K ' , hut, as is the case with all worldly thinf s, the fad rose to a climax, then declined, and was gone. Thus ended the first j)lague of Xornial Hill. PLAGUE NO. 2. Aforementioned Dame Fashion is a busy woman ; her train of followers must never be idle, and so upon the head of one dashing young damsel, she placed a cap, a simple boA ' s cap. Like wildfire, the fad was taken u|). And every live girl on the Hill had a cap. Great indeed was the profit made bv the Merchants of Xatdiitoches, but after the su])])ly sold, the fire died out and thus ended the second plague on Normal Hill. PLAGUE NO. ' .i. What Dame Fashion has split asimdir, let no girl sew together. The worthy lady did decree that no one should join the front of her skirt with the hack thereof. Forthwith there ap|)eared the split-skirt and with it multitudi- nous rainbow effects in ])etticoats ))ee])ing out of the slit. There were s])lits of all lengths, and both im|)roper and proper fractions of length. What the dressmaker had joined together, the Normal (iirl did split asunder in mad obedience to the commands of her mistiness. Hut. like every other whim oi Dame Fashion, this also vanished into thin aii-. So ended the third ])lague of Normal Hill. .1( l ' i,. (irK NO. +. I ' ver-watcliful ( ' u])i(l « a not to be ouldoiu b i " aNlii.)M. so v.iilj a quiver full of arrows he made his abode on Normal 11:11 long iiiough to pierce tlie hearts of three of the Normal ' s lady teachers. Well was he repaid for his labor, but if he should return, with a little jjractice and careful aiming, he could gi ' t two more victims, we fear. Howexer, from all ap|)earances lu- has deserted us, and with him went the fonrth plague of Normal Hill. PLA(iUE NO. .5.
