Probably no other single invention has played the part in our modern civilization that the telephone has played. The telephone has made possible those rapid business methods that are characteristic of the modern world. It is true that, at its earliest conception by Alexander Graham Bell, the telephone was considered by the world at large as a toy and impractical. It was rapidly improved, however, and in a very short time was firmly established. At present it is a practically indespensible part of our business and social world. A complete discussion of its history and many applications would be quite beyond the scope of this work, but its salient features can be enumerated in this book as we depict the main phases in its development.

To Alexander Craham Bell is due the credit for the invention of the telephone. Bell, who was born in Edinburgh on March 3, 1847 , moved to Canada in 1870, and thence to Boston in 1871 , u a teacher of deaf mutes. He discovered the principle of the telephone on June 2 , 1875, but it was not until March 7 , 1876, that he was granted his origin•l Three dllys plltent on his invention. later WliS the first time that connected human speech was ever tr~nsmitted lind heard over a wire.

An ()de tv ()ea n Be kind to your Sophomores, 0 George Reinald Dean, Their beans are now sluggish and cold; The works of each differe ntiatin g machine Are rusty and sure growin g old. Ah, once they could do forty problems with ease, But now they are spavined and lame; Your quizzes alone give them heart disease, Each mourn s for the lack of a brain. You toiled and you slaved like a govern ment mule, You gave every one a good chance, You spoon-fed them full ::ccord ing to rule, And rejoiced over each step's advance. The campus is moist with the billows of sweat You cheerfully shed as you sought , T o bring up these boobs to the mark you bad set, But the mark on their papers is "noug ht." They say they don't know and don't give a damn For the apples of knowledge that hang Within easy reach of the bone-head called man, But their hopes will go up with a bang.

So be kind to your Sophomores, friend George Reinald Dean

They'l l be ~orry they laughed when you railed, The flush on their cheeks will turn sickly green At the end of the term when they've failed.

This instrumen t was the original telephone invented by Bell in 1875 ; in the 路 first practical demonstr ation , however, in 1876, a slightly modified instrumen t was used. In the summer of 1876 Bell exhibited his modified instrumen t at the Centennia l Exposition in Philadelp hia. Here, however, it attracted no attention until it was acclaimed as a wonderfu l scientific 01chievem ent by some visiting scientists.

In early telephone work, the same instryment was 11sed both as a transmitter These instr11ments and as a rece iver. were leased or loaned in pairs to individll31s by Bell. Te lephoning was done over a single iron wire with the gro11nd There w ere no as a ret11rn circ11it. switchbo3rds. Edison finally perfected an instrument that was m11ch more satisfactory as a tra nsmitter than that of Bell. Here3fter, Edison 's ins trument was used 3S a transmitter and Bell's as a receiver. The telephone above was one such combination in use about 1880-1890.


()ur Cvachinâ‚Ź ltaff Three years ago a trio of coaches came to us from Emporia, Kansas, to assume charge of the athletics at the School of Mines. These men had tO contend with almost everything that goes to make trouble for coaches. The teams for the previous yeau had very poor records and there was a decided hck of interest in moSt of the contesu. These men came unheralded and unknown, but now there is not a person in this pan of the st:ate who do not instand y recognize the ability of Grant, Rapp or Brown. These men came with good records behind them but they were forced to show their ability t o gain credit from the Miners. These men took the candidates as they came and built up a team in these three years that is the envy of every school in the state and a team that is considered by many authorities to be the strongest eleven in the state. There is no question in the minds of any true Miner that Grant with the able assisunce of Rapp and Brown can build a team as no other staff of any school can. These men have passed the tests of even the worn of okepti<.> and we uc looking forward to seeing them on the coaching staff of the wearers of the Silver and Gold for many years to come.

ScHOFlELD, (Captain) Halfback. "Tex" played his last and by far his best year for the Miners during the past season. His punting ability and his prowes~ in run· ning back punts stood the Golden Wave in good stead in nearI y every game of the season. His absence from the squad next year will leave a gap in the backfield. He could be counted on to give his best in every play. HASSLER, Fullback. In all probability the Miners have never had one man who has played as well and as consistemJy as has Fritz in the past four years. He has played the role of triple threat man and fuiJback in neHiy every game in the four years. His passing ability is equalleJ by no one in this pan of the country. He had little trouble in landing a benh on the allconference eleven. T rrORNTON, Quarterback. Dick has acted as the field general for the Miners for the past two 'eamn~ and his selections of plays combined wtth his abiliq• as a line plunger has made hom a valuable asset to the Golden Wa,e. Dock gaincJ fame for himself and for the school when he gained a selection as all-sute fullback. He will be back next year. MALIK, (Captain-elect ) End. Three years ago Malik appeared on the field as an insignificant a~pirJnt for a wing position. Such was his abilory thnt after only :1 few scrimmages he took hi~ place on chc varsity and he has had Iit tie trouble in holding his place. He is an incomparable pass receiver, and he has tallied man) touchdowns for rhe Miners from thi~ source. ToMLrNSON, Center. Chunk possessed 11 S pounds of buwn and muscle which he ccruonl y used to the best advantage on the gridiron. As a center he was perfect in passing the ball back and he presented a stone wall which was inpenetrnable when on the defeme. His all around abi lity was instrumental in landing him the center position on the mythical all-state team.

Pagt FifiJ-fit•c

GIBSON, Tackle. Gibson made a fit running mate for Koch and with :a pair of tackles such as this combination turned out to be, opposing backs were conn:antly being thro ...·n for losses. Gibbie speciali7ed in tackling passers before they could get rid of the ball. He has two more years to play with the Miners and we are expecting still more wonders from him. McDONALD, H:tlfback. Mac was playing his fine year for the Miners and he still ha~ two more to play. His flashy broken field running and his staunch defensive pl~ying placed him among the stars of the bner part of the season. Very seldom were passes completed in this territory. He will undoubtedly be one of the main cogs in the Miner backfield ncn year.

Koc11, T :tcklc. Koch came us us two years ago after playing for two years on the McKendree eleven. He was extremely effective on the defensive and in very few cases did he fail to break thru opposing lines and smear many phys before they had a clunce to develop. He was placed in charge of one of the tackles on the all-conference eleven. SuTHFRLAND, Guard. Coach Grant certainly made a wise change when he switched Suds from fullback to a guard position. Suds "used his 200 pounds of brawn n only he knew how to use it and he w~• ont' of the m•in reasons for the famous Miner steam roller attack. He was in every play and he will be still better next fall. STURM, T:~ckle. No harder fighter nor more intense trainer was on the Miner squad than j ohn. If it was in his power co tackle a man that mw was uckled. John has still another year to play with the Miners and he will see much more action in the forthcoming season.

P11ge Fifty-six

LoNORIGAN, End. Mick played good football this season in spite of the fact that he wu greatly handicapped by a bad ankle. He was in every play and it was a real job to get him out of an off-tackle play. He has yet another year to work with the Silver and Gold. KlRCHOFF,


Another new man displayed hi} wares and was rewarded by seeing plenty of action dur路 ing the past season. Kirchoff showed especial ability on defcn1ive work and he had littl e trouble in snaring passes from the air in the neu vicinity. We are expecting to 3芦 him in action many times during the next season's pby.

D EFoE, Guard. Johnnie played his final year for the Miners and his bulk was essential in helping to nuke the center of the forward wall comparable on ly ro a stone wall. His loss by graduation next 1pring will leave a big gap in the center of the line. A bad knee kept him out of some of the games, but he made up for ot in the other contests. \XIT LLIAMS,

Quarterback .

Art showed rc-2l field judgment in his se路 lection of plays and only his light weight kept him from seeing still more action in the past season. l-Ie still had another year to play with the wcMers of the Silver and Gold. He will be a valuable asset when Coach Grant starlS his men into action neAt fall.

OswALD, T ackle. As to his ability, in playing either guard or tackle it is unquestionable. He has done both very favorably. We expect great things from this freshman n~xt fall.

P.sgr Fi/l)'路tr~ rn



Dick came back srrong this season after suffering a broken shoulder blade in the early put of his first yeu of play with the Miners. His fight and earnestness and good condition was bound to place him among the letter men. He will be back to do still more for the wearers of the Silver and Gold next fall.


H alfback.

He was heard of little his first year, but in succeedtng years his ability as a broken field runner, earned him a name on the varsity. He was also a real pass receh•er, ranking with the best of the Miners.

0RF, Guard. Another Freshman showed why he was a High School Star in enough games to win his letter. OrÂŁ played hard football and gained much valuable experience in the games this yeu. He will prove especially valuable when DeFoe and Sutherland are lost by graduation.

Summar}' of the Season MINERS '9路 KIRKSVILLE TEACHERS 6 After letting the Teachers get a six-point lead on them in the early part of the game the Miners started opening up in the manner in which Grant had been drilling them all fall and had little trouble in holding their own for the remainder of the half.

It was at the beginning of the second half that the Miners started on the rampage which was to last thruout the season. With Thornton and Hassler smashing thru the line for long gains and Schofield making sprints thru large gaps in off tackle plays the Miners piled up two touchdowns in rapid succession. Grant made a number of substitutions in order to see some of his new men in action. The second string added another touchdown in the last quarter as the final shot ~oundcd the end of the opening game for that famous Golden Wave. Grant had succeeded in giving all of his first string men a good workout and he was well fitted to select his starting lineup for the next tilt.

MINERS 67; DRURY 6 The fact that Grant knew what he was doing in selecting his men was testified to by one of the largest scores ever piled up by either of the traditional enemies in their annual clash. The Drury panthers got away to a flying start when they completed a pass which went for a touchdown after only a few minutes of play had passed. The Miners again slow on the start received the kickoff and in less time than it takes to tell it they had tallied their first touchdown. From that time it was almost a riot. The Miners were scoring from every part of the field and the large crowd of old grads who were back for the annual homecoming affair were given a rare treat. The game finally ended with the third and fourth string men in for the Miners and a one-sided score in spite of the hard fighting put forth by the Panthers up until the final shot had sounded.

MINERS 33; ST. LOUIS U. 33 One of the most thrilling football games that it was ever the pleasure of grid followers to witness, wa:; played in the Walsh stadium in St. Louis when the two strongest teams in the state met. In less than 5 minutes afcer the starting whistle had sounded the Billikens had scored two touchdowns and to all appearances the Miners were hopelessly outclas>ed. After a short time out the Miners elected to receive the next kickoff. With brilliant interference Schofield ran the ball back to the Bills' 45-yard line. On the next play that unstopable plunger in the personage of Thornton crashed through the line and scored • touchdown. A few minutes later another had been added in favor of the Miners after a successful pa;s. The quarter ended with the Miners on the long end of a i4-13 score. The thrills were duplicated in the second quarter when the Bills added rwo more touchdowns. Early in the second half the Miners added a third touchdown, but their new hope was short lived when the B.illikens tallied another on their own account. The final period started with the Miners hopelessly trailing by two touchdowns and so the score remained until only 6 minute; of play remained. The Miners staged a last minute rally which made history and with the help of Hyland's ability to snare passes from the fog gained a tie of 33-33 all when Hassler's pass to Malik over the goal line was good for the final point.

MfNERS 38; MISSOURI VALLEY 7 The Miners staged a very successful invasion of Mi..souri Valley camp when the two elevens met for the first time in recent years. Again the game started very slow and the Miners failed to score until late in the second quarter when Hassler gave a wonderful demonstration of passing. He passed twice from the center of the field; once to Malik, who was stopped on the 5-yard line, and again to McDonald, who was over the goal line. Schofield added another touchdown just before the half ended by a nice run around end. The Miners changed their tactics slightly in the last half and started a line battering which ~oon wore down the lighter forward wall presented by the Vikings. This style of attack proved equally effective and the Miners had added three more touchdowns in rapid succession. The hard fighting Vikings staged a last desperate passing auack and they were rewarded by a successful pass over rhe Miners' goal line only ::1 few minutes before the 6nal shot sounded.




ln a much battered and bruised condition after the hard fight with the Sr. Louis bunch, the Miners drifted listlessly thru the third and last conference clash wilh the \'q"cstminster Blue J ays. The Miners had all of the weight and experience advantages, but the Blue J ays presented a hard fig hting bunch that gave the Miners much trouble. Early in rhc game the Blue J ays gained poszession of the ball and started a march that threatened the Miner goa l line. Only after a supreme effort the Miners held on their own 3-yard line and Schofield kicked out of danger. For the remainder of th:: half the ball was ncar the middle of the field with both teams doing a great deal of punting. Early in the second half the Miners unleashed their forces and their charges were not to be denied. Before many minutes of the last half had been played the Miners had scored two touchdowns. Grant immediately ran in a bunch of substitu te; to save his varsity for the hard game with the T ulsa bunch which was sch::dulcd for the following week.

MINERS o; TULSA UNIVERSITY t8 The Miners received their fi rst setback of the se:tson when they tied into the hard fighting undefeated bunch who represented the Tulsa University. The entire game was played in a heavy downpour of rain and fumbles were the rule rather than the exception. Since this wa:; the Miners first experience in handling a wet slippery ball they were at a decided disadvantage.

The Tulsa bunch upheld their reputation for rapid scoring when they scored in less than three minutes after the whistle had sounded. They added two more before the final shot had sounded and in spite of the best efforts of the Miners they failed to cross the enemy goal line for the first and only game of the season. Several long drives down the field placed the Miners in scori ng distance, but each time a fumble would upset al l hopes. One pass was perfect over the goal line, but the slippery oval eluded the clutching fingers of the Miner end. The teams were much cvcner matched than the score would indicate and the final score would have been different on a dry field.

MINERS 39; CHILLICOTHE BUSINESS COLLEGE o After a huge djsplay of enthusiasm accompanied by a bonfire the night before, the Golden Wave took the field to show just why they had been proclaimed the strongest team in the state. After scoring only one touchdown in the first period the entire Miner backfield ran riot and scored from every part of the field. As soon as the Miners gained possession of the ball they were in ~coring distance. The Chillicothe bunch displayed a real brand of passing, but their inability to crash thru the Miner forward wall and lack of time in their passes caused their offence to fail. This was the first set-back for the Business College and they went down fighting to the last but the Miners played their best game of the season, after a series of four games away from home. So ended one of the most successful seasons in the history of Miner football teams for the past sccre of years.

MINERS BRING GLORY T O SCH OOL Never since that historic team of I 9 14 has the School of Mines been so well represented on the gridiron. Never have so many stars been assembled on one team of the Golden Wave. Members of the eleven gained not only much fame in conference circles, but the Miners gained for more than their part of state recognition. The best part of it all is t hat only three of rhe nineteen letter men will be lose via sheepskin next spring. The absence of Schofield and Hassler from the backfield will leave a big gap in that portion of the team and DeFoe will be greatly mjssed from the center of the line, but with the abundance of reserve material ?.nd Grant to build new men, the Miners should have a still greater team next fall. Thornton and Tomlinson gained an honor that is seldom meted out to small schools when they were selected for the fullback and center positions respectively on the allstate eleven. Hassler further added to the glory of the school when he gained honorable mention and a berth in the backfield of the second team. Thornton, Hassler, Koch, and Tomlinson had little trouble in placing on the all M. C. A. U. eleven while d1e remaining seven of the varsity men received honorable mention from this source. Those receiving honorable mention were Schofield, McDonald, Malik, Londrigan, Gibson, Sutherland, and Andres.

T he Miners were creditably represented on the basketball court chis season for the first time in recent years. The proteges of Coach Rapp very successfully carried on the work started by Coach Grant and his unsurpassable string of footb:dl players. The Miners were considered one of the strongest quints in the conference and only three teams of the conference were able to surpass the sharp;hooters who wore the Silver and Gold. The fact that three Freshmen constituted the !llainscays of the Miner combinations indicates that Rapp will have an unscopable quint on the court next season. In the season's play the Miners piled L'P 45 3 point ; while the combined efforts of their opponents netted only 394 points. In no game were the Miners beaten by more than cwo or three goals and in the majority of caszs che breaks of the game decided the winner. Bubas and Kirchoff, both Freshmen, demonstrated co che entire sacisf:tction of Coach R app and all of the Miner backers that they were capable of taking care of the forward positions of any team in chi; section of the country. With still another year's experience to their credit they will be capable of contributing more than their share J enkins and J oslin, Sophomore and Freshman, to a ch:tmpionship team next year. respectively, shared honors at che center posicion. Boch wt.>re excellent as the pivot man in Rapp's fast-breaking offcn:;ive plays. Much credit is due co Tittle and Captain Heilig, who played the guard positions as on ly veterans of the court could. These men wrecked numerous enemy plays . before they were fairly started, and lucky was the opposing forward who cou ld get his hands on the ball for a follow-up shoe. Any one of the six men was good for a counter if given half a chance to flip the ball toward the loop. All in all Rapp presented a strong combination for every game, and since Heilig is the only man who will be lost by graduation this spring, the Miners wi ll be satisfied with nothing less than a championship next year.

1~3f) Troc~ ~eview Out of the cloud that surrounded the track team of 19 2.9 there emerged several men who were real stars on the track and field thi:; vear. Once again the squad was composed largely of men from the lower classes, but this time there was a radical difference in the caliber of the men entering the contestS. One year of extensive training under a man who knows his ;tthletics as Coach Grant docs would bring out the best m any man. Only lack of material caused the Miners tO ~uffer defeat on the track and field this year. Where material was available the Miners could generally be counted on to win. The Golden \'V'ave was exceptionally strong in the middle distance and the mile relay. The mile relay team won every start with the exception of the Kansas Relay. Monroe, the star on the entire squad, won his major event, the half-mile, in every meet in which he was entered. He ran anchor man for the mile relay team, and also took part in the quarter mile dash and the half mile relay team in several meets. Monroe is to be captain next year. With every letter man on the team eligible to be back with the Miners next year, and with Coach Grant to properly instruct the new candidates, the Miners should have a team which will truly represent them as they should be represented. Most of the scores in the meers this season were close, but if they are close next year, the Miners will probably be on the long end of the score. The letter men of chis season's squad and men who will be back for another year co carry the Silver and Gold faster and farther, arc: Monroe (Captain), Davis, Coghill, McCreight, Miller, Gevecker, Koch, Kauffman, H ilegman.

Summary ()f the Seos()n TRIANGLE MEET The Westminster Blue Jays again waiked off with the honors in the annual triangle meet between the Miners, Westmin:;rer and Central Wcsleran. This gave the Blue Jays a fourth straight victory in thi~ meet. Altho the Miners placed second they were well behind the leaders. The final scores were Westminster 92, Miners 45, and Central Wesleyan 7路 Boyd, ace trackster from the Blue Jay squad, was easily the outstanding star of the meet with four firsts and one S<'cond to his credit. Six letters were earned by the Miners in this initial appearance. The mile relay team composed of Monroe, McCreight, Coghill, and Gevecker easily won a first place as did Monroe in the half-mile run. The other letters went to Davis 1nd Koch who placed first in the 2.00-yard dash and shot put respectively. Coach Grant was well pleased with rhe first perfornunce of his inexperienced men and foresaw the development of some real stars.

Letterm en MoNRO!:: (Captain-clec t)-"Rex" was easily the outstanding star of the squad this season. He easily won his main even t, the half-mile, in every stare. H e also was a big cog in both relays and he ran the quarcer with no mean ability. He truly deserves the captaincy for next year. DAVIs -Davis was another star who came from the ranks of past season's squad. His chief worries were the 1 oo and 220-yard dashes. He could always be counted on to place in these events and new tecords meant nothing to him. H e also ran in the relays. CoGHILL-Airh o Coghill was only a Freshman he proved to be one of the m o:;t valuable assets to the Golden Wave. His fast working legs carried him over the hurdles in an incredibly short time. His work in the relays and in the quarter alone was enough to gain him recognition. McCR CIGHT-"Mac" came back strong from his work as a Fre::hman and proceeded to make himself one of the :;tars of the ream. His intensive t raining always kept him in condition and one cou ld be sure that he would be there when things happened in the quarter. H e was a regu lar in the relays. MtLt.ER-Anocher Freshman who really possessed the goods. " Ben" reported rather late in the season but he showed a stride which soon gained notice. He lettered as a member of the mile relay teJm and did some very c reditable work in the quar ter and half mile. GEVECKER-G evecker came to us from \'Vashington U and altho he had very little track experience he worked with a willingness which was sure to get him places. His events were the mile relay and the quarter and half mile. Koc1-1-Aitho Koch's leaning in the sports was toward football, he answered Coach Grant's call for material in the field events and developed a knack in heaving the javelin and shot which gained him a permanent place on the team. He has another year to do his stuff for the Miners. KA UFl MAN-An inconspicuou~ Freshman worked out regularly in the pole vault. The coach took him along on a rrip to fill in his squad. The Freshman vaulted 1 2 feet. That Freshman was K:lUtf man, who will carry the Silver and Gold over the bar for three more years.


Srr till) -our

LETTER MEN-Continued HELICMAN-Again a Freshman ans,vered the call. I Ieligman worked with a will and was rewarded for his work. He developed a form and technique in the high jump which bids fair to gain him much fame in his remaining three years with the Miner track squad. CuTLER-No one questions the fact that Cutler really worked and trained for his events. H is inexperience handicapped him to a great extent, but he has three more years to work with the Golden \'<fave. He deserved his letter and will probably make many more. MINERS vs. DRURY Again a lack of entrants in the field events played h:IVOC with the Miner trackmen. As a resu lt the Drury representatives nosed them out by the close score of 69-65. This meet proved to be one of the closest of the season for the Miners. Four new records for the Miner track were set up as the Miner crack half-mile relay team broke the tape in exactly one minute 3 5.6 seconds, which lowers the previous record of 1 minute and 37 seconds made by the team of 1926. McCreight stepped the quarter in 53.1 seconds which time was .2 seconds better than any previous mark. Robb, star of the Drury men, shattered both the I oo and uo-yard marks, the respective times being 9.8 and 23. I seconds. The showing made by the men wearing the Silver and Gold wa:; by far the best made by any team in the last several years. The new men manifest still more promise to develop into a real team.

The Golden Wave made a noble effort, inexperience and lack of entrants in field events cost heavily in the second meet of the season.

MINERS vs. SPR INGFIELD TEACHERS The Golden Wave again had to be content with the little end of a 77 to 58 score, altho the Miner representatives displayed a brand of work that vouches for much work on the part of the coach and the men on the squad. Davis and Monroe were e:1sily the outstanding men of the meet. Davis won both dashes very handily and conu路ibuted his part in the half-mile and the mile relay. Monroe won both th:: half and quarter-mile runs and ran anchor in the relays. Kauffman contributed the only other fine place in the field events by winning the pole vault at a height of t 1 feet l inch.

Only those men who had been doing ver y creditable work on the track and field were taken to Columbia, and they succeeded in winning their share of the points. Rex Monroe again came to the front by winning the half-mile run in a driving rain and a$sisting McCreight, Davis and Coghill in winning the mile relay. In addition to these two first places McCreight and Davis finished fourth in the quarter and 220yard dashes respectively, while Kauffman tied for second in the pole vault and Heligman tied for third in the high jump. Doubtless under more favorable conditions the Miners could have made a much more favorable showing but with the total burden resting on the shoulders of seven men little more could be expected.

Tennis Survey

For the first time in a good many years the Miners were on the tennis courts in inter-collegiate matches. Little interest in the student body as a whole was manifest in the early spring, but as the season progreslted and the team conrinued to win most of their start they began to draw a good sized gallery at the meets. A round robin tournament was held to decide the members of the team, with Coach Brown in charge of the team. Handley, Tieman, Mertz and Thoroughman were the successful ones in the tournament and were selected to repre:;ent the school, playing as they were mentioned above. This team was taken to Springfield by Co:~ch Brown where they made their initial appearance against the Springfield Teachers. The quartet wearing the Silver and Gold had little trouble in winning the three sing le matches to win the meet. Handley playing the number one man for the Miners ousted the Tc:tchcrs best only after three sets with scores of 6-8, 7-5, and 6-3. T ieman defeated his man in straight sets to the tune of 6-3, and 6-1, while Thoroughman took his man into camp with a strong comeback in the final two sets, his scores being 1-6, 6-3, and 6-1. The doubles team composed of Handley and Tieman lost to Lucas and Hitchcock by a score of 4-6, 7-5, and 6-3路 Mertz and Thoroughman had little more luck, losing to Jackel and Marcin by scores of 6-2, and 7-5. The net artists again swung into action againSt the Drury net-men but the meet was stopped by a downpour of rain after only three of the matches had been played. Handley won in straight sets from Hyder with scores of 6-4, and 6-2, while Thoroughman dropped his match in :ts many sets to Kline. Tieman lost his match to Coppage in a hard-fought three set match with scores of 1-6, 6-3, and 7-5. At the time of the rain Mertz was even up in sets, Handley and Tieman were winning, and Thoroughman and Mertz were losing in the doubles matches. The real fame of the year came when Handley journeyed to the state meet and carried off all honors placing first in a large number of entrants. Handley drew a bye in the first round and easily defeated his opponents in the semi-finals and the finals without as much a~ losing a set. Handley and Tieman were ousted in the first round of the doubles by the Tarkio bunch who later won the doubles championship. All in all the season was most successful for the Miners, and the future for this branch of sports is very bright.

In 1878 the first switchboard was installed at New Haven, Connecticut. From then on, countless changes were made, from the early types shown , through the well-known desk telephone shown above, to the dial phone. Lines were improved from the old single iron wire type to the present copper open wire systems and the aerial cable, and underground cable system.

Pipe Vreams I

Didst ever in the even-c1me, T ake down your briar pipe, Strike matches on your corduroys, And on the amber bite? {I

Strange happenings fill che student mind. As through the fumes of blue A vision pleasant is aligned, All gar-bed in roseate hue. Ill For living's wonh t he while, when each Small worr-y drift:; and curls Up to the ceiling, out of reach, And moulds your college-girl. IV T he laughing eyes, the scarlet lips, Take shape in contour fair, Anot her puff, and there uplifts A bank of curly hair.

v She thus reclines on mystic couch, And stretches forth her hand, That fades within the lover's grasp, Into a smoky band. VI She floats up high in hazy fume, Beyond rhe touch of man, And mocks che youth, predicts the doom Of love in college-land. VII Up, always up, the Vision rides, 'But ever out of reach, The Maiden lookb below and chides, Of love that: ib impeached. VIII The sweet, fresh lips we fain would press, Wait quivering on the air,

'But soon dissolve-ethereal caress, fhey're neither here nor there. IX They're gone co join all other lips, That coax the heart they broke, And arc safe within the harbor Of lost dreams, up in the smoke. X The youth unknowing sti ll clings to This imm:trerial wraith, His head and hcnrt arc t ruest blue, Unshaken is his faith.

XI A; pipes burn out, then so does love, The former we relight; But, ah, the Vision up above, H as slipped into t he night.

XIf To-night will never come again, Though ocher pipes may glow, And waft a picture now and chen, As up the smoke- wreaths go. XIII So kindle up, old briar fr iend, Let's dream once more, be fast, Before the Girl on high descends, Lee thi; dream be our last. X IV few more puffs :tnd all is done, T he gurg le SOt111ds within Otlr trusty pipe, the race is run, The smoke is gettin g thin. 1\

XV A Ia~, che bow I no longer glows, There but remains the ash, The fragrant weed is dead, and so ls college-love so rash.

The Mmrr board i; a of students chosen only after they have proven their ability in one of the depanments of the organizations that produces the weekly publication. ~ r o u p

lc is entirely a student publication and is frequently the field of more or less h:!ated discussions among t h e writing Miners. The policy of the staff is to be impartial to every group or individual on the campus and we can say with all sincerity that the 193 0-'3 1 board lived up to its avowed arm. During the year on special occasions such as Christmas and St. Pat's our little sheet blossoms out in a fancy colored binding and contains all the latest jokes and p i c t u r e s which, just as a comic magazine, adds so much to the enjoyment of the reader.

M. S. M. Vorsif}' ()rchestro One of the greatest needs of a moderate-sized college community such as Rolla is a good dance orchestra which is available for all fraternity dances and popular campus social affairs. Without an organization of high spirited and talented producers of syncopation, the success of any dance remains a doubtful quantity. Mediocrity or indifference in a college dance orchestra are indisputibly discouraging and invariably generate a feeling of dissatisfaction in the student body. Such was the situation atM. S. M. in the fall of 1919 when L. E. Reeve gathered together a few students who possessed musical ability and began the task of producing a good dance orchestra capable of the harmony spirit which goes so far toward making a successful dance. That he succeeded admirably is evidenced by the popularity which the M. S. M. Varsity Orchestra, otherwise known as Reeve's Varsity Orchestra, has achieved. It stands unrivaled excepting Bill Schweikhardt's famous ÂŤDutch Band" among all the harmony organizations which have been formed previously from the students of the school. During the past two seasons Reeves' Orchestra has furnished the music for all fraternity dances and most of the campus social affairs where the services of a good organization of rythm-makers was required. Invariably their performances added to enjoyment of the guestS and the success of the occasion. -W.I.H.

St. Pat's



St. J>at" s 1g11 To whatever part of this old world of ours the loyal sons of M. S. M. have strayed, there coo have gone the age-old traditions of St. Patrick, beloved patron saint of all engineers. That the grand old man of engineering is well entitled co the honor and fame which arc his is well attested by che history of his prodigious deeds, foremost among w hich was the banishment of all evils in the form of snakes from his own Emerald Isle, thereby converting it co a Christian land of good cheer. One brandishmen t of his crusty shilalah, a warning shout, "Be off wid yez, yc varmints lessen I usc yer skins to bind me books!", and the snakes and all forms of evil were banished forever. Many ocher equally heroic deeds too lengthy and too numerous for inclusion in a narrative of a St. Pat's celebration are attributed co the wondrous powers of the old gentleman. Suilice it to say that he is revered among all the loyal sons of M. S. M. and chat we are so extremely fortunate as to possess his affection so chat he visits Rolla yearly on March r7ch. For this happy event three days are sec aside and the entire student body engages in the celebration with such whole-heartedness that St. Pat's at Rolla has become far-famed, the big splash in our social puddle. This year, as usual, the gods of the upper spJces, in joyful anticipation of the spectacle of the arrival of chat venerable old bard at Rolla, mixed the drinks a bit indiscreetly it seems. and the weather controls were handled with alarming carelessness resulting in rain during the greater part of the entire celebration. But nothing can make a Miner downhearted during this incomparabl e socia l event. There are compensations. The joy occasioned by the jolly army of feminine joy-seekers which invades the village to help celebrate St. Pat's may not be mitigated by so commonplac e an occurrence a~ rain. Throughout the years of happy St. Pat's celebration which have passed into history, it has gradually become the custom of the variou~ fraternities and club houses on che campus co stage a brilliant series of house-partie s and open-house dances as a prelude to that which follows during the week-end. Equally brilliant and thrilling were che joyablc dances held Thursday evening, March 19th, to any chat had gone before.

Starting at 8 o'clock in the evening the parties succeeded each other in delightful rotation until rhe last one ended at breakfast time with bacon and eggs very appropriately ser ved. Needless to describe the mixture of happy anticipation and joviality rhat attended each of these dances. Out of the dimness of a year's sojourn an foreign lands and duu the mists of a dripping morning came Saint Patrick. Disembarking from his hand-car at the "Union Station" he placed himself at the head of his bodyguard of inimitable QV kids ~md a parade composed of floats from fraternities, clubs, and merchants. Marching blithely to1 the music of the R. 0. T. C. Band the procession soon reached Parker Hall where the venerable old Sainr arrayed himself upon the stage of the auditorium with his retinue of guards :tnd pages :tnd delivered a most worthy address to the assembled body of guests, faculty, students, and townspeople. Welcome to the fair damsels who were guests, greetings to all men, and admonition to the faculty :tnd seniors were the content of his witty oration. Immediately following this annual message he officiated in the knighting ceremony. Each senior aspirant to the honor of knighthood in the order of St. Pat was presented with :1 sheepskin and royal emblem after h:tving been reprimanded for past deeds and commanded to kiss the Blarney Stone reverently by the fatherly Saint. In the afternoon the multitude of joy-seeking couples were once more attracted to Parker Hall to be entertained this time by the M. S. M. Players in an excellent threeact comedy farce, "Mad:tm The Boss." A plot of political intrigue filled wirh funny situations :tbetted by a competent cast, it achieved great success and :tdded much to that day among the three in which no dull moment is ever allowed to creep. The realization of the dreams of many came that evening when the crowning feature of St. P::~c's festivities-the Masque Ball-with :~II its incomp::~rable joy, beauty, and splendor started, and midnight approached. In striking contrast to the gloom of that misty evening outside the gym w::~s the atmosphere of the beaucif ully decorated interior of it. From the dance floor drifted the sweet slow rythm of a popular dance tune and, as one listened and approached its source its tempo seemed tO increase until, reaching the Palace of Love and Bcautiy into which the main room had been transformed, one received the full effect of chat never-to-be-forgotten scene. Never had a more wonderful

orchestra produced the aU-important harmony; never a more colorful happy crowd of joy seekers than that which was gathered there in happy anticipation. Midnight struck, and close upon the echo of the last stroke came the clarion call of trumpets announcing the arrival of His Majesty St. Pat. The sounds of gayety and laughter of many happy couples faded as the pages announced the well-beloved Saint. Bent of figure and hoary of beard because of his many years, but no less imperious and commanding was he as he strode slowly toward the throne while the orchestra struck up his favorite ballad, ''The Wearjng of the Green!' KowTow!, was the order now of every guard of St. Pat and, as the crowd knelt in obeisance, a procession of exceeding grace and beauty entered and passed down the aisle toward the throne. There came several former queens of St. Patrick; Mrs. H. G. S. Anderson, 1919; Miss Elizabeth Long, 1929, and the retiring queen, Miss Madge Lennox. Then, preceded by a long train of Maids of Honor and the little crown bearer and flower girls came the Queen of St. Pat's 1931, Miss Marion McKinley. Radiant in all the glory of her blonde loveliness she approached the throne with befitting grace and dignity amidst a tremendous ovation from the enthusiastic crowd. Kneeling before the venerable old Saint she was crowned by him and welcomed to preside over the festivities with him. Then followed a grand march led by Col. Chas. L. Woods in which the entire throng of sweethearts joined. This marked the end of the outstanding event of a wonderful evening of enjoyment. Came the recessional from the throne, and then-"on with the dance!" and Slatz Randall's Brunswick Recording Orchestra started willingly in the production of unending strains of captivating harmony that increased the pulses of many a happy couple. No description could possibly do justice to the costumes of the merrymakers and the decorations of the hall that evening. Impersonations of many characters varying from ladies of King Arthur's Court to Circassian Slave Girls and from Charles Il to Daniel Boone were in no sense lacking. And through the whole crowd moved Dan Cupid and Youthful G lamour producing a magic wondrous to behold. Only the huge crystal balJ, played upon by the rays of vari-colored light from many spotlights and throwing in return myriad gleams of dancing light upon the crowd below and into the far corners of the room to seek out every bit of happiness there could tell of all the beau ty and bliss so rampant in the Palace of Love and Beauty that night. Too soon, it seemed, came the approach of dawn and the end of a perfect dance. Wearily but happily the joy-seekers sought the soothing arms of Morpheus as the stars on the eastern horizon began to dim with the approach of dawn.

The greater part oÂŁ the next day was spent in recuperation and the early morning hours found Rolla a deserted village. But rhe elasticity of youth prevailed over fatigue and such complaints as sore feet and other minor ailments, and an inventory oÂŁ the guests at noon disclosed all present and rapidly reviving in energy, disposition, and appetite. As the afternoon wore on and the open-house dances of the Kappa Alpha's and Sigma Nu's were attended all cares vanished and the same happy crowd moved on toward the enjoyment of the brilliant formal dinners at the various houses on the campus. Again happiness and the delightful excitement of anticipation held the guests. Ten o'clock saw them assembled again at the gym. But what :1 difference in their appearance. The Daniel Boone of the preceding night had changed magically into an immaculatel y groomed figure clad in the formal black and white. Upon his arm was seen not the

Pag<" Om¡l-lrmJrrd Forl)-lbru

Circassian Dancer but a beautiful lady clad in a jeweled gown of dauling splendor. 1c seemed that the contrast between rhe two night~ served to ~ati\f) :tny desire for variety chat might h:tve existed. You rna} \earch where }OU will but never wall you find a more jovtal and yet supremely happy group of young people than at :1 college prom. Such was the spirit of the d.tncers, thrilled br music at its inspiring be~t and cr.tmporced ro ,, dreamland of happiness lasting chru the golden hours of that perfect Ball. Perhap~ it was the poigrunt feeling of regret at the closing of so wonderful ,, celebr,ttion char engendered their resolve to dance, sing, and love while so excellent an opportunity presented. Certain ly a perfectly ananged repertoire of features by the orchescr.t .tided. At any r<tte Cupid enjoyed a great night .:>f business so rhac, after- .t perfect final dance number, the ~tr.tins of a beloved familiar song sung by many b.tritone voices filled with emotion, caused many a he.ut to contract with an indescribable feeling of combrned bliss and sorrow, as it reached rhe c:1n of che listeners-"T'm .1 R.unblm' Wreck from RoiLt Tech. -a Mining Engineer.'' Although the 19 3 1 St. Pat's celebr:~cion ended with those final Hr.uns of music and che reluctant departure of cbe guests from rhe gym, it goes on unending in the memories of those who achieved unparalleled happiness here.

Men Men are what women marry. They have two feet, two hands, and sometimes two wives; but never more than one dollar or one idea at a time. Like Turkish cigarettes, men are all made of the same material, the only difference is that some are a little better disguised th:m others. Generally speaking, they can be divided into three classes: husbands, bachelors and widowers. An eligible bachelor is a mass of obstinacy, entirely surrounded by suspicion. Husbands are three varieties: Prizes, Surprises and Consolation Prizes. Making a husband out of a man is one of the highest plastic arts known to civilization. It requires science, sculpture, common sense, faith, hope, and charity, and the most important of these is charity. It is a psychological marvel that a soft, tender, v1olet-scented woman should enjoy kissinr a big, awkward, stub-chinned, bay rum and tobacco-scented thing like a man. If you flatter a man, it frightens him to death, and if you don't you bore him to death. If you permit him to make love to you, he gets tired of you in the end, and H you don't he gets tired of you in the beginning. If you believe him in everything, you soon cease co interest him; and if you agree with him in anything, you soon cease to charm him. If you believe all he tells you, he thinks you are a fool, and if you don't he thinks you are a cynic. If you wear gay colors and rouge and a startling hat, he hesitates to cake you out; and if you wear a little brown hat, and plain clothes he takes you out and stares all evening at a woman in gay colors, rouge, :.tnd a startling hat.

Women Women are what men have to marry-that is, if they marry anybody, which they usually do, for, as Saint Paul says, "It is better co marry than to burn." They likewise have two feet, two hands, and one great big tongue; they can always spend one or more dollars, and they always have about a thousand and one ideas-none of them worth a hoot. Generally speaking, women are-generally speaking. Like all Gall, women can be divided into three parts: Those who have not been married, but wane to be married; chose who have been married :md still are ; and those who have been married and want co be married again. They ar! all surprises. Making a wife out of a woman is the easiest thing known to man. All chat has to be done is to tell 'em to wilt, and they wilt. It is a miracle of God that a great big strong he-man should take a second look at an insignificant little flibbertigibbet possessed of a total lack of any and all intelligence whatsoever. If you compliment a woman, she thinks that your intentions must be, as in Brock Pemberton's production, "strictly dishonorable." If you make love to her, she says, "Sa-a-ay, where d ya get that stuff? I ain•t that kind of a girl." And if you don't she says, "Aw, yer too slow; go ltome and teU yer mother she wants you." But in either case, she tells all her girl friends everything that happens, to the accompaniment of a volley of giggles. If she talks about her girl friends behind their backs and you don't agree with her, she retorts, "Well, what do you know about it?" And if you do agree with her, she says, "Why, I think you're perfectly horrid."

A gentleman is a 'uy who can calk co a chorus girl m her "costume" and say what he is chinking. Smith: "Gee, if I don't look- out I'll flunk out." Jones: "Well, why don't you get hoc and study?" Smith: "That's the trouble, when I get hoc I can't study." End: "Did you make Whoopee at che party?" Point: "Hell, didn't even know she was there." Dutch: "Say, your dress scarcely covers your body." Betty: "Well, what's w.:ong with my body?" A rose blush crept over her cheeks like sunset across the autumn hills. "Really, you shouldn't do this. I'm the chaperone." " T hat's all right, lady, I'm only the janitor, myself." " Pa." "Yes, my son." "What is a flapper?" "A flapper, my son, is a woman who does what an old maid would like co do and has not the constitution to stand it." Bill: "Do you fellows wash your clothes at the house?" Burt: "Hell, no." Bill: "Well, what's che washing machine for?" Burt: "That's no washing machine. That's our cocktail shaker." "Jimmy, do you want to see the little new baby the stork brought your mother?" (After looking at baby): "Hell no, I want co see the stork." The Old Maid: " Has the canary had its bath yet?" The Maid : "Yes, he has, ma'am. You can come in now." Speaking of efficiency, che loose-leaf system is said to have been used m the time of Adam. The Ford is my chariot, I shall not want another; He maketh me lie down in wee places, I t destroyeth my soul. I t leads me into paths of ridicule For its name's name; I t prepareth a breakdown before me In the presence of mine enemies.

I will fear much evil When it is with me; I ts rods and its shafts discomfort me, It annointeth my face with oil, Its water boileth over. Surely if Lizzie follows me all of my life I shall dwell in the house of nuts forever.

Well I'll be seein' ya," said the man as she shoulder straps of her evening gown broke. Here' s to the girl that's pure and chaste, The purer she is the less she's chased. Adam, after awaking from a deep sleep and viewing for the first time his helpm ate in all her marvelous beauty, smiled broadly in amazed admir ation as he began to count his remaining ribs. "I wond er," he mused, "if a man can do witho ut all of his ribs." Mary had a little skirt So nice, so brigh t, so airy. lt never showed a speck of dirt But showed a lot of Mary. A modern girls is one who can meet the wolf at the door and come out with a fur coat. "Dearest, where is my frater nity pin?" "Why all of the boys complained that it scratc hed their hands , so I left it off." He had been punished repeatedly and a paddling was an every -day occur rence . While his mothe r was out of the room he cautiously appro ached the table and picked up the magazine she had been reading. He became very intere sted in the highly colored ads and was eagerly perusing the one for Wood bury's soap when he heard her return ing. Quick ly he thrus t the magazine under him and turne d and surveyed her. "John ny! What are you sittin g on?" "The skin you love to touch, Mom !" "You 're the girl chat lives next door, aren't you?" "Why , yes, I am." "Well, how come I haven 't seen more of you?" "Oh, you see, my room is on the other side of the house ." I know how ugly I are, I know my face is no star, But then I don't mind it, Because I'm behind itIt's the fellow in front what gets the jar. WHO 'S SORR Y NOW ? He had proposed and the girl had turned him down . "Ah, well," he sighed dejectedly, " I suppose I'll never marry now." The girl could n't help laughing a little, she was so flatter ed. "You silly boy!" she said. "Because I've turned you down, that doesn 't mean that other girls will do the same. " "Of course it does," he return ed with a faint smile. "If you won't have me, who will?" GON E TO PROT EST Stude nt (leaving colleg e): "Goo d-bye , sir. I am ind~bt ed to you for all I know ." Prof. K. K. K.: "Don 't mention such a trifle."

ONE DROP IN THE BUCKET at the ninth green, which was behind a mound, when a resting were Four golfers and rolled into a sandy trap. The player was not in rise the over came ball battered VIeW.

"Let's make him think he did it in one," said one of the golfers. So they picked up his ball and put it in the hole. Presently a weary player walked over the mound and looked about for his ball. The four men rose at him, shouting : "Did you hit that ball? Bravo! It's in the hole! " The player looked bewildered. "Here's how it rolled," they said, tracing the course across the green. "A perfect shot! The right angle and the right strength! Bravo!" The weary pbyer pulled out a tattered score-card : "Good," said he, "that makes it 30 for this hole!" EARLY WORMS WILL TURN "You must wake and call me early, mother dear." That was often said to mothers by the girls of yesteryear ; But the girls now tell their maters, as they sart out for a spin, .

A man took his wife to a doctor, who put a thermome ter into her mouth, and told her to keep her mouth shut for two or three minutes. When departing, the man tapped the doctor on the shoulder and said: "Say, Doc, what'll you take for that thing?" SAUCE FOR THE GANDER The boys of one of the rrofessor's classes got a goose and tied it securely in his chair and pushed the chair under his desk, just before his expected arrival. He entered, pulled out his chair and saw the goose occupying it. "I beg your pardone, gentlemen ," said he, "I didn't know you were having a c lass meeting. BOTH LEGAL AND HYGIEN IC An Aberdeen lady was buying a birthday present for her husband. In the men's furnishing departmen t of a big store she asked for a collar, size sixteen.

Another development . not, strictly speaking, in the actual telephone field , but along the same line, and that has been developed along with the telephone, is the telegraph typewriter. With this instrument, it is no longer necessary for the operator to know the Morse code, she merely types the message on the machine. It is recorded at its destination as a typed message. From our present-day instruments comes-telcv ision-radiov ision-wirelc ss person to person conversation -all arc possibilities being worked upon now.
