The time for presenting the College Year-Book has arrived . We ask the kind indul gence of our reader for any featur es w herein this volume may not meet the standards of journalism. We claim no traces of genius, although we trust w e have not fallen into a hopeless mediocrity. Nor do we claim this b ook to be a masterpiece of its kind. It is but a faithful, interesting and complete record of College activities in 19 15, and more particularly those of the S enio r C lass. On this criterion let judgment be made.

An organization whose incorporation dates hack almllst ha If a Cl'11 t 111·y. and which numbers among its members some of the 1111 1st distingnishcd people of this and other States, needs no introduction t() those who kno\\' of I •ern.

It is nothing unusual to record that Philo has hacl a snccessful year. hnt this one, judging from the entertaining and instructive prog1·ams


have list-

ened to, would seem to have been the acme of achievement. One reason for this is that Philo has no drones, there is a pn •vision that each Philomathean must in turn make his appearance on the pn ,gTant. which he is glad to do. The presidents, Joseph I<Iima and E. E. Ericson, have at all times had the interests of the Society at heart, while the chairmen of the progTaln con1ntittee, Grayce Teich and ll ope ~\I utz, together with their faithful co-laborers, ha vc performed unusually efficient service . .i\Iiss Rose Clark, our adviser, has had the enthnsiasm of the young-c1· n1cn1bers coupled \dth years of experience as a loyal Philomathean, and the value of her guidance in the affairs of the Society cannot he nver-cstintated. \Ve look forward with plcasun· to the fi ftict h ann ivcrsa ry of Philo and plan to have a big Philo Home-Coming at that time.

In these days of economic and indnstrial progrl'SS, many pee •pll' an· beginning to sense the need of a college education.

This edncation n11nprisl's tnc 1rc

than merely a knowledge of subject matter. The world is looking fot· nwn and women who not only have a splendid academic career and strong reasoning powers. hut who are in coniniand of ideas of social development and ability to express themselves before the ptthlic. ( >ne's education cannot be completed until he has attained some knowledge of the social aim of present-day peclagogism. The student, whatever his aspirations may he, who eXJH'cts tc • sttccccd, must be a leader in the social circle as well as in the otlwr v;u·ic 1tts phases of the school-room activities; he mnst have ability to express himself clcady and vividly to the people with whom he deals. Jn order to meet this clcn1and. to enable the student to learn to express himself in public. litentr.\· societies haYe been organized.

It was with this purpose in view that E\·erett I .it crary Society

was founded in 1872. Since the elate of its organization it has hl'etl the ain1 of every member to make the society one worth while. .\ftet· a few years of sttccessful meetings held in one ()f the class-rooms. the society was given the rnon1 it now occupies. This year the members of the organization have ~tt·ivcn to make the tncetings worth while in an educational way. ( )n the other hand. entct·tainnH:nt of a diversified character has received its full share of attention. flrogran1s to suit special occasions have been g-iven: witty debates have spiced the evening's entertainment on various occasions. X ot a little can he said of the good titncs we have enjoyed at the different social functions, in which the hovs and girls took their turns in entertaining- each other. Although the year's work has been prufitahle. we hope that next vear will be even more successful than the one just passed.

The years glide softly and swiftly as the wind. The events of a year ago seem as the happenings of yesterdaY. .-\nother school vear is here and pa~sing. another volm;1e of The Normalite is being compiled. :\lay it be a volmne that will induce higher standards of living in the hundreds who read it. The many changes and a<h·ances of the X ormalite during the n.·ar indicates that this wish will easily he fulfilled. :\Iore students are enrolled than ever before: the upper classes are much larger than in past years: the alumni organization has grown with time: work will soon be begun on the fine new trammg school building: and certainly the school spirit is fine, as was manifested by the manner in which the budget was supported. Because of all this \\"l' forecast a memorable year for Pent, and "'fhe X ormalite will certainly share this good fortune. \Ve crave vour forbearance and solicit vour ~upport in the publishing of . this periodical. X

The following editorial paragraph is an abridgement of an editorial appearing in The Kormalite a year ago. .-\s it is an expression of the attitude this periodical will take toward simplified spelling under its present editorial management, we here reproduce it: The N ormalite retains its allegiance to the principles of simplified spelling. altho compelled to n.·duce the number of simplif1ed forms it employs. as compared with earlier volmnes of this journal. The one general rule \Ve shall try tn adhere to applies to verbs whose present tense forms end in a consonant and whose past tense and perfect participle forms end in the sonn<l of t. In the spelling of these latter fnrms. \H' shall regularly employ the final t instead oi ed. as in such \\"nr<ls as a kt. drest.

They fought, hut finally came to an understanding and pledg-ed themselves never· to struggle with each other again. In honor of this agreement and to afford some tangible and concrete memorial of this solemn pledge. they erected on the horder line, in the heart of the :-\ndes, a huge figure of the Christ, on the base of which were chiseled these words, "Sooner shall this figun· cnnnble to <lust. than shall Chilians and Argentians break the vow which they have made at the foot of the Christ." So, too, may the walls. the mortar, the stone of this institution crumble a way before any son or daughter of Peru shall break the bond of S\Yeet memory or forget the tie that binds all the loyal ones to their Alma l\Iater.

Several persons \\"L're asked to kaYe the rnom. then were brought back one by one. .:\ftet· being hlindfulded and turned annmd two or three times. the adventm·cr was told to "stl'p c111 hoard." Then the trip began. The passenger could feel hitnsclf rising and tlw perst1n who had been acting- as his guide seemed far below; the trembling of the plat form on which he stood made him feel that he was, indeed. floating uti int• 1 the air. This effect \\"as heightened by his hitting his head upon what apparently was the ceiling. :\t this critical moment the aviator wa~ tc 1ld to jump. lie did sn and found that he had been deluded, for it had lJl'en no trip at all. hut instead. a hallowc'en joke.

Last fall, we Freshmen hacl our initiati()n, "g-l't acquainted" picnic. \Ve assembled in front of the chapl'l steps and whl'n all had arri\T<I. marched to Neal's pasture. Peru's favorite picnicing- g-r()und. Thl' boys g·athl'red fag-11ts for a fire and then while the ''committl'e'' was preparing suppl'r, Wl' played g·antes. Everybody was given opportunity to roast his own \\Tillie and marshtnaJlow. (C)f course, some of the boys ate more than 'llll'.) After supper, the main event of the l'Vening • JC<:UtTed. nanll'ly t hl· initiation of the Freshman adviser. The process was a very c"mplicatl'd and t·at her htttniliating one, but Prof. \Vilson came out of it unscathed. ~ext. t hl' g-l't-acquainted part of the program was given. Each person was askl·d to tell his nan1e, where he catne from, ancl to favor us with a "stunt" or llll't11ory gcn1. The air rang with our songs, yl'lls. peals of laughter. and the bflolll of llashlight. It is hoped that we clid nut disturb any sll'eping I 'entvian as we llll'rrily wended onr way homeward.

Qrqr §npqnmnrr Jtrnir The 5th of October, the Sophomores helcl their picnic in :\I r. Davenport's pasture. just south of town . .\t 4:3n. they met on th(' chapL·l steps and proceeded to the appointed place. Although it was rather clark ancl a rain thrcatl'ned, SL·veral snap-shots were taken of the cnnnl. 'These, however. clicl not pro\'e a great success. Some enthusiasm was aroused by playing a few old games until time for the snpper. This was eaten around the camp-fire. ancl c• •nsistcd of the ordinary ''stuff' for such occasions. except that our ad viscr. l'rof. I f o\\"ic, ordered icecreanl brought out. This \\·as indeed a treat ancl surprise. Supper over, the class officers and :\Ir. I lowie made spl'eches anntnd the fire. :\Ir. Howie told of his tmattained <h:sin.· to he an onttor, httt if he is no orator he generally has something to say when the occasion <letnands. The picnic ended, as all \vell behaved picnics should, \\"ith the class and Kormal yells, and all went home feeling better acquainted, and with tnnrc class spirit than before. Get off the earth! Give us the scene! \Vc're the class of '17.

Of the numerous event~ regularly scheduled for the class. perhaps one of the most interesting and one of the tllliSt important. at least Otll' of the most enjoyable. is the annnal "get acqnaintecl'' picnic. This affair is two-fold in its result. First, it makes us fl'el hl'tter acquaint-

Consequently, one fec.-J:.; mnn.· at case: more.· at liberty to do as he chooses and the "getacquainted" part of the program is put into actual usc. :\loreo\·er. it arou~es school spirit and an interest in the class as a \\·hole. \ Vhcn the ne\\" student hears t be.· ydls and the songs. he realizes more than ever that he is a member oi a distinct organization and that he has an importance equal to that of any nH.·mher of the class. In fact. everyone feels a thrill of school spirit such as he ne,·er ielt before. Enthusiasm such as this can only come throug-h a mc.·c.·ting of this kind. ( >n Thursday. < ktohc.·r 1st. ,,.e Juniors gathered together for our first party -"the g-et-acquainted party" if you please. :\bout ..J.:JO P. :\I. we assembled in front of the chapel. each \\"tth his own cup and spoon, eagerly a\\"aiting the \\"ord to proceed to the picnic ground.

Possibly. the most atnusing game for these dignified (?) ichabods was basehall, which was playl·d with indoor baseball paraphernalia. "Jerusalem and J l'richo:· ·· .\lphahet:• and other "kid" games played leading roles, too. Snon canH..' the titne to attack the mess wag-on. Each one had provided himself with a stick on which he roasted a "wienie" or two. Coffee flowed freely. I >otato chips. pickles, oli,·es. buns, made up the "rational" diet. .-\s a side dish, we had water-nwlons (which by the way. tried to make their get-away, assisted, as we hclil'\'C. hy under class men). and as dessert we had Cucumis Citrullus as I >rof. Jean is \\·ont to call it. Titnc to break cantp came too quickly. A bon-fire was built, in which was thrown all ck·hris. Thrilled by the glow of the flames, and led by our class adviser, we g-ave "Senior! Senior! Rav! Ra,·!!'' etc .. and sang "The Pale Blue and the \Vhite." Ranks were broken. ~nd in. parties of twos (by far the most num- . crous). threes and larger groups. we meandered homeward at the curfew hour.

wq.t lltuinu 1Rrr.tptinu During one's college life, there arc always places, people, and happenings that stand nut vividly against the background of the general every-day routine. First impressions of the town itself, people who help one to forget his homesickness. acquaintances formed that arc later to ripen into friendships-all these pass into and arc retained in that precious chamber of consciousness called nletnory. r\n event alwa .vs lonrr remembered in the social life of Peru is the annual union rccc1)tion "" £!'iven bv the reli<Yious or()'anizations of the school to all students . 0 0 and ntetnhcrs of the Facultv. This is a time of informal good cheer, when old friends greet olcl, and when ·students of the previous years welcome the ne\V students and endeavor to show then1 a bO"Oocl time. Such a reception was that held in the gymnasium in the fall of 1914. Fortunate were they who attended. for it was worth while in every respect. The receiving line safely passed, one found himself adrift in a throng of good-natured pleasure seekers, whose paths were to cross and recross many times during the year. Each was tagged with a slip of paper bearing his name and home town. 'The "wild and woolly west" was especially well represented, for Bob Boyd was there. 1\ o one could long rentain unknown. Presently order was called for, and an excellent program,, announced by Professor Hendricks, followed. lHiss i\Iyser, who appeared for the first time before the students, delighted her listeners with several readings; l\I iss Blankenship sang beautifully; and a horn duet by l\Iessrs. 1-Iosic and Chatelain concluded the program. Professor Hendricks then tended to all a cordial invitation to attend the Sunday services on the following day. Sante of the dear boys, wishing to show their ability along musical lines, got together during the evening and made the air vibrate to the strains of "Die \Vacht an1 Rhine," "Die Lorelei," and other German classics, and they could only be hushed by the appearance of refreshments. Then, amid chatter and laughter, the first big event of the social calendar came to a close . ~

So when on ~larch 6, 1915, the training teachers of the Faculty held a reception for the Senior class, we considered ourselves fortunate and happy indeed. and couid scarcely wait for the long anticipated treat.

"This is the one opportunity outside of shirttail parades, that I ha \"e of going to the dorm, and most assuredly I'll embrace it." This Jr. did not find himself alone in representing the male section of his class for besides the Jr. hoys. there were the upperclassmen also, with expectant and glean1ing faces. ()f course. the strangeness of the place, which had taken on a gala-day attire-flowers. red decorations and subdued lights-had much to do as to the radiant faces. hut the thrill of realizing that you are a guest at a Ladies' Donn-ahem !-is enough to make anyone's countenance glow like old Sol.

In the rc..·ception line were "Cassi11s" who is "onr hoy" in dorm parlance, ~I iss Cleland. :\I iss Burgess. and -:\I iss Gunderson.

Partners were secured throug·h the matching of re<l and green hells. It is to be doubted if Solnn1on himself could have recog-nized some of the ''matchings" as hells, hut it turned out alright. as those who failc(l to match had the privilege of going out in the kitchen and "eating with the cooks."

The reception was held in two of the recitation rooms which were beautifully decorated-one in the High School colors. the other in the Senior colors. The success of the evening was larg-ely due to the excellent and well organize<l plans for cntcrtaintnent. Each person. upon entering. was given a pennant bearing- the name nf one of the four classes of the school. .\fter the guests had gathered they were asked to separate into tlwsc different classes. Each class was then asked to organize and he prepared to take part in intt•r-class contests. A lively interest and enthusiasm was actuated by reason of the friendly rivalry between the groups.

All tnen, soon or late, arc compcllcd to defend or· deny the t nr tIt of alleg-ed phenomena, and the case and accurateness with ,,·hich conditions arc met, often detcnninc a man's position or reputation. If there is the least hesitancy it is conjectured to be a lack of definite knowledge. c1r that the truth is not nn that side. Christ was accosted by .\ C E I~T.\ I:-...· L. \\ \" Y E I~ wh11 was accustomed to the disputes of the court, yet his keL'IliH·ss of ]>L'rL·eptioll, his breadth of vision, his wealth of illustration. his well-timecl questic 1lls. sc HIll led the la\\:yer to sec the truth. Then. as well as now, there is only llllL' true end of argumentation-TR UTI-I! So long as the "Devil can cite scripture for his pttq>osc .'' sc' long will there be need of discussions tl' show the falsity c,f his cc mclusic ms. sc • lc mg will there be need of pure unadulterated tntth tu cdTsct the )'LTniciousncss of his satanic majesty. The great problems of the day demand careful. c..:onsistl'llt, and sequac..:ious thinking if truth is to be the desideratum. Trickiness has no place in forensics, for it offers no truthful solution to momentous pn ,),)ems. To think consistently, requires nntch effort: to he so exact as to defy successful contradiction, demands keenness of thought and vi,·iclness of expression; to be so thorough as to anticipate the weak points of one's opponents, requires concentration; while to be investigative. requires interminable industry; and these-effort, thought. expression, cone en tration and industry-arc the noticeable attributes of efficacious de haters. Thirty-five years ago, a farm \vhich had heen bought for· six dollars an acre, was permitted to go back to the original owner· after· one paytncnt had been made; "for", said the bu\·et·, "it will never make it." The land in question, exactly thirty-five years latct:, sold for one hundred fifty dollars an acre, and the same man remarked, ''\V ell, sec what I would be worth now. if 1 had held on to that piece of land." Here is an instance of snap judgment so often used by young debaters. Young people. who arc prc me to hasty c..:onclusions, soon learn in "give and take" debates, to place emphasis on the value of ideas, to adjust them to fit the issue, and to amass them properly where they will have a telling effect. The analysis of the question devel1 >ps bt·oad vie\\'s of peculiar situations, lends interest in the relations of different aspects, and promotes investigation. Here again, the debater finds that sound judgment must he used; for he must in this analysis carefully eliminate all it-rele\·ant and extraneous materiaL The questions of the hour demand soluti1 >n; and then· is. in nearly all cases. a great deal of truth on both sides. The real problem. then. is to find the probabilities of a solution: weigh the evidence in regard to its advanccnu.·nt of human interests. and find justification from biography and hist()n· for the support of the basic principles which underlie the foundation of the n;nclttsion. ).Jere gossip finds no place in a debater's store hcmsl', and he sc lOll ll'an1s to say only those things for which he has proof.

interested in proof, fail to remember. 1-Iis mind thus becomes a store house of facts, and he ~tan<ls on firmer ground by his disapproving of gossip and his approving of truth. The debater gains in self-confidence with each debate he "·ins, until he reaches his \\"aterian: for he values the favorable opinion of three tnen more than having- offered a truthful solution. His first defeat never has the effect of lowering the tnark of his self-confidence. but of increasing his ambition to succcL·d along tnorc rational and permanent paths. He polishes his speech, intproves his personal appearance, trains his voice, practices graceful positions, and by increased dt•\·otion to courtesy. sincerity. and honesty, he generally reaches the placl' of eminence, in the minds of his friends. that he had in his own before the defeat. The <kbatcr finds that one of his greatest problems is to organize his material. after he has done his reading. and the discipline is so great, and so difficult of attainntent that the methods of the debate arc sure to be made a part in the acts of his business career. It would seem strange indeed to see a good debater .slovenly in his work. In the recitations he stands erect. alert, open to conviction, and ready to convince. l-Ie cannot be passed by without a reason, and is not satisfied to sit quietly by, and. sponge-like. absorb. Soon the awkward boy. who begins to debate, is not recognized, for he commences to make a cotnplete speech in each recitation, takes a more active part in all discussions, and organizes his thoughts in such a way as to produce respect in the minds of his instructors, and admiration in the ntincls of his mates. In almost all cases the debater is the leader in the school activities. He is elected class president by a large n1ajority. he is the editor-in-chief of the College paper, \vins out in the election to the position of manager of the College Annual. as well as editor-in-chief, is president of the large literary societies, gives the announcements in chapel, represents his class in the practical talks, is president of the Christian societies, and is the ambassador of the class on all intportant occasions. 1\ ot content with these eminent honors, he has comnlcnccd to invade the field of athletics, and when he wrestles, he brings his mind to act with his tnusclcs, puts real science into the contest, and uses his head for RE-buttal. If he has time to compete in football he wins a place on the team -for his quick wit and ready n1ind cause him to anticipate the argument before it is tnadc. and again his discipline in the organization of his material allows hin1 and has taught him to give argument for argument. He refutes the argutnent that he is slo\v and in llRJIEF time wins a place on the College basketball squad. In life he takes just as active a part as he takes in his College course. He makes speeches from the school house to the Senate; from the justice of the peace to judge in the Supreme Court; from school teaching to the presidency of the Union. lie is the representative from the County. the Senator from the (listrict. and the Governor of the State. He is the greatest lawyer. the most earnest advocate. the I vy-<lay orator. and the autocrat of the pulpit. I I c is in evidence everywhere.

Regard lc~~ of 1it era ry L'xcl'llencL' ot· rhetorical power; as a record of comn1unity interests: by Yirtue of tlw extensin? field it needs must cover: it is bound to be a force. To touch every line of acti,·ity. to lead in every move for civic improvL'Ilten t. t n he foremost in L'Ycry adYance for social uplift. to guide and encourage the intl'llLTtual life of the community. in every way possible to promote the public welfare-this is the pn.n·ince of the comm1mity newspaper. The nL·w~paper i~ a force then. from the standpoint of business, to be supported: politically. to be fl·ared: morally. to he upheld: socially. to be courted; intclkctually, tu in~pire: hi~torically. to be preserved. II ow eagerly do we scan the advertisements upon opening our newspaper! ?\ot only do we wi~h to learn of the latest bargains. but as reading material we note the phrasing. the ingenuity of the composition. The gossip of business rivals invite intt·n·st in the local page. \Ve sight the amount of space appropriated hy the new hardware store, thereby gauging its standing in the business world. The an1ount of business enterprise in the community is reflected in the newspaper, throug·h the offices of which many an advertising scheme is originated. If business is dull, we seek ont the editor and put it to him to devise son1e tneans fnr starting things. Advertising pays-it is up to the editor to n1akc it pay. \V e leave all details to the editor. Business is dull, not because of the war in Europe, or failure of crops. or stringency in the money market, but because we lack a good. live editor, such as they have in our neighboring County, who concocts wonderful schemes of voting contests for the most popular young lady, a grand bargain dollar day. a grab sale, or the giving away of a piano. In the world of politics, we feel keenly the force of the newspaper. Here, assuredly, we do not know our own tninds until we know what is the newspaper's. Do we ,\"ish to run for political office? Better sound the editor first, there's sitnply no use entering the race without the support of the paper. It takes a tnan of principle to run a newspaper during a campaign, to stand by his convictions, fair, itnpervious to temptation of personal advantage. If we can enlist the services of the editor, we have a powerful aid in our catnpaign for civic itnprovement. Do we need better roads? Get the newspaper interested. Do we need a new town hall? \Vhisper it to the editor. To he sure, he never ceases afterwards to remind us of it. alluding on all possible occasions. to the "edifice of which we feel justly proud, having been largely instnunental in its erection.'' But the fact remains that the newspaper IS largely instnunental in every public enterprise, discovering the need of it, encouraging the possibility nf securing it, devising ways and means towards attaining it.

It is the newspaper that stimulates the movement for the chautauqua and the teet ure course, whatever of entertainment comes within our range: and it is the newspaper that is scathing in its criticism, if the expected treat does nc 1t fulfill its promises. Then the Society Column is such a delig-ht. Those sati•.;fying wl'ite-ups that mark ns as people of social prominence, who know ho\\" to entertain in the most approved fashion. If our names appear within this colttnln. then tn 11y, we are within the pale. I recall a most humorous acconnt, not the fault of the newspaper, I hclieve, but reflecting the attitude of the community towards a trying s« ,cia I situation. A young man had been most faithful in doing- janitor work fc >t' the Sunday school, ringing the bell and building the fires, quite gratuitously. in the schoolhouse where the services were held. The people whnn1 he had thus benefited, sought to show their appreciation by holding a sort of reccpt ion for him. The plans were extensive; there was some decorating: a bounteous supper was arranged for; and as a crowning featm·c. they \Ycre going to present the young man with a chair. The write-up was duly appreciative. Each detail was dwelt upon, even to the presentation of the "small token of our gratitude, accompanied by the good wishes of the entire conltlltlnity:" and then. quite at the end of the description, and seemingly not having affected the progTanl in the slightest, came the sentence, "The only feature to mar the c\·ening's pleasure was the guest of honor having failc<l to appear!" ~o con1111ent scctned necessary.

Tlms the paper offers a fleld fur our literary aspirations. Throug-h the editorial column there is a splendid opportunity for intellectual intluc..'tll'c..'. \\'riting upon whatc,·er topics are at the moment of peculiar interc..·st to the..· con1n1unity. or calling- attention to the happenings of the world at larg-e..'. there is a wonderful chance for direction thought along right channels. Still one tnore division remains. one that endears itself to the hearts of the older subscribers who live larg-ely in retrospect. and that is "The T\venty-five Years :\go .. colun1n. There is an immense amount of satisfaction in re-reading the c..·,·ents of a quarter century ago. to those who have watched the passage of titne frotn the san1e viewpoint: and the old people by the fireside sit in re\'erie after its perusal. and chat happily of by-gone days. So-the newspaper a community force? It is a part of our lives. It announcc..·s our arri\'al into this world; watches our career through school, puts our nan1cs on the honor roll, follows us through College. eager to herald our first tritnnphs; anxious to extol the..· worth of our "fellow townsman" if we do aught of tnerit; proud of our successes: sorrowing in our griefs; marries us-in conventional black though it be, and faithfully cataloging the list of impossible, wcll-tncant contributions as ''beautiful and useful presents; .. buries us, writing an obituary in our n1etnory that forgets our mistakes and remembers only our virtues. Then let us consider the immensity of the newspaper's undertaking, and be chary of our criticistn, lend it our support: give something of the encouragenll'nt and help to its author that he has given to us-the community.

only place that afforded even a meager protection from the sun and wind, the cracked and mutilated walls of a once mag-nificent cathedral. whc >se beauty of architecture had been heralded all over the world. Upon nearing this improvised hospital our hearts were sickened by the cries and moans of the suffering wretches. and on approaching still nearer, our nostrils caught the nauseating stench of warm blood. For the first titne I felt the horrible reality of carnage and death. .:\fy heart stood still at the ghastly sight. Hundreds of dead and wounded lay therc-t he stone floor their only cot, oftimes their heads pi11owed on a dead comrade's breast. Their eyes \\'ere for the most part closed, as if to shut out the horror of the ~n.·nl·. There \\'ere many who slept the never-waking sleep, and as I looked f ,,·onclered if there had been regrets at the going. Others, who might in time recover sufficiently to be removed, would never s<.'e the place that had she lterecl t hetn, not· the faces of those who had kept the awful vigil with them. Their sight had heen shot away by flying fragments of shells. < )ne poor wretch lying there. disemboweled, acually smiled up at us as we worked over him. vVith every movement was heard the crunching of hones or the death gasp of some poor mortal as his soul took its departure tc, a not her world. \ Vc saw arms torn from shoulders, the splintered ends of botH'S protruding frotn bloodstiffened garments, and there ,,·as pain, pain everywhere. The very stones on which they lay were like those of a slaughter floor, yet lacking the drainage these places afford. ( >nly hy exercising great caution were we able to keep our footing on the slimy. oozy. hlood-covercd surface. As I bent over a hurt and gasping fellow to moisten his lips for the last time, I was arrested bv a statute in a niche just ahove. \Vhat a tnockcrv was this! There was the Christ, His hands extended in benediction, and h~;d I I e been able to speak surely I-T is wnrcls would have hl'en, ''Peace on earth and good will toward men!'' I\ o wonder the lineaments of grief arc S( > deeply furrowed in the face of Christ, and in this statue so tragically life-like, they sccn1ed doubly so. On the day following three long. open trenches were seen. vVhen night's somber curtains pityingly closed over the scene. numberless grin1 and silent processions wended thither. Complying with military regulations "for convenience in handling, bodies shall be corded into packs of fnur"-all that \\"as tnortal of those poor wretches from the cathedral back there was dtttnped into these places the whole of it was strewn with quicklime and dirt thrown on. They did not live to receive one of the various crosses given for bravery in battle, yet I do not doubt but that their rewards will come from that J(ing ~f Kings into whose court they found entrance.

The mumps, one of the first and most dependable harbingers of the joyous springtime, is a peculiar affection of the parotid and other salivary glands. which gives to the facial contour of the victim the appearance of an over-inflated toy baloon . vVhen a mump epidemic gets loose in a conununity the soup-bone and the boullion cube vic with each other as article of popular diet, and the tnerchant orders crackers by the car-load lot. The efficacy of the sour pickle as a tester makes this ordinarily rejected dainty very much in demand. The peculiar feature of the mumps is, that while other diseases beget the sympathy of one's neighbors, this malady appeals only to his sense of lnnnor; and the victin1, isolated like the leper of olden days, is given his own time in which to recover. In this state of solitude his only solace consists in applying heated to\vels to the area of high pressure. Then again, the contagion of this disease is rather mysterious. Hypochondriac people have been known to wilfully absent themselves from the weekly meeting of the Commercial Club, or from the Sunday evening services thru fear of the disease germs, only to catch the ailment from the sneeze of a kind passerby-with no charges. The disease was at first christened "Cynanche parotitis," hut the pronunciation of the name invariably proved fatal to the patient. Thereupon, the tnedical men out of respect to the sweet nature and benign aspect of the victim, shortened the name to the goocl. old. vernacular "mumps.'' E. E. ERICSON.

OH! I SAY! D'YE KNO\i\1Where can a man buy a cap for his knee? Or a key for a lock of his hair?· Can his eyes be called an academy Because there are pupils there? In the crown of his head what gems arc set? vVho travels the bri ?f his nose ?f Can he use, when s11mg1mg t 11e roo of his mouth, 'The nails on the ends of his toes? vVhat does he raise from the slip of his tongue? Who plays on the drums of his cars? And who can tell the cut and style of the coat his st~m1ach wears? Can the crook of his elbow be sent to jail? And, if so, what did it clo? f-low does he sharpen his shoulder blades? I'll be hanged if I know-do you?


\i\/hat \vas the biggest joke on the Glee Club trip? Job's turkey. For further explanation, make inquiries of ··I key'' Lovell. For new methods in securing dates, inquire of Kohler and Long. ~Ir. Ericson in his excitement over his Scandinavian program, became slightly confused in his tenses when he announced: ":\I r. Canzcll will now sing for us 'Last Night.'"

A PSYCHOLoc;y PS:\L:\1 Professor Gregg is my teacher-I shall not pass. He maketh me to answer in deep embarrassment: He leadeth me into traps of my own setting, He ca11eth my bluff. l-Ie leadeth me into dusty paths among orchards of datt•s for mine own nourishment-yea, tho I walk with James and Angel, I cannot recite for they will not help me: their dignity and their laws thev crush me. - He prepareth me for a plucking in the presence of my clas~matcs: He raineth on my head his questions, he showcth me up. Verily, Psychology docs haunt n1e every hour of my life, until I shall dwell in the Normal no more forever. THE THREE GREAT :\lEN OF THE :\(;E! Socrates Father Dingbat Roy Haggerty Jack A.

''Tomorrow I will quit the booze," a wet old toper said. .. :'\' o more will 1 my health misuse, no more a swimming head."

''Tomorrow," said the slave of gold, ··rn n1end my evil ways. 1'11 give away n1y 0 Ill 0 f f 0 W I wealth untold and live in peace my days." Alas!

Tomorrow! saddes-t dirge e'er heard; it leads us to perdition. The present is the time to do, if you would make life pay. Success on earth will come to you, if you but act today.

\Ve feel that it will interest nttr readers to know how the home folks fcc I in regard to honors showered upon their Alumni who han.· hccollll' I \·ruvian~. hence we have clipped at randc1111 from sl.'vcral State papers. item~ which have to with some of the successes scon.·d hy students hl'rc: The Times is in receipt of a letter from Fran I.- II osic, who is attending school at Peru. As our readers alrcadr know, Frank has been the bulwark of the 'varsity football team the past two. years, but this yl.'ar was unable to play on account of an injury to his arm. Recently a signal honor has come to Frank in his appointment to Corpnrai of the Cadet Company. \V e congratulate Frank on his success.-Tecumsch Times. Newspaper accounts recently report the success in a musical way nf Clyde Leece, a local boy, now a Junior in Peru State ~ ormal. X orth Bend people \Vere ahvays aware of the excellence of Clyde's VfJice, but down at Peru he has come into his own. His rnost recent success was his rendition of the second tenor part in "Kathleen l\Iavourncen," in an entertainment at I ,cnt. The quartet, of which Clyde is a mernber, was repeatedly encored and we feel certain that the superiority and exquisiteness of his voice was in large measure responsible for the success of the quartet.-X orth llend Enterprise.

It is not often that we can record such success as recently came to :\f erritt Chaffee, a student in the Peru State N annal. .:\ckno\vledging his experience in practical electricity, he was last month chosen electrician on the Glee Club trip, and, greater than this, in recognition of his integrity and business ability, he has been recently elected treasurer of the Philomathean Literary Society. Go it, ~Ierritt, the Clarion is with you !-Alliance Clarion. The Outburst always welcomes news of any of the Alumni of the Panama High School, and this week we have an item that will fill the hearts of Outburst readers with joy and civic pride. Frank Tilton, no\v a student in Peru Teachers' College, will be renlernbered for his part of "Samba" in "The Ron1ance of the Pickle-Factory," our home talent play given several years ago. It seems that Dan1e Rumor had spread his fame as an actor abroad, for almost immediately on his arrival in Peru he was elected to its strongest organization, the Dramatic Club. Later on he was further honored by being appointed property manager of the Dranlatic Club play. which position he filled with great credit. The next thing, Outburst readers will be hearing of Frank's elevation to a fellowship on the Faculty. Panama is proud, and justly so, of her Peru triumvirate: Long, !-Iarrison and Tilton, and the Outburst begs to suggest a reception in honor of these three on their next home-coming out of respect to the unprecedented honors they have brought to our city.-Panama Outburst.
