LBERT HUBBARD says that editors are people who s e bu s ine ss it is to separate the \\heat from the chaff and see that tl:e chaff gets printed. We have tried conscientiously to live up to this definition, but we believe that in spite of our best efforts a little wheat has sifted m. We hope you think so too.

Editorial S this goeS to press, 1\e kn Oll that our country has actiYely Cn!{a~ed in 11ar; and IIC do not feel that ou r book would be complete 11 ithout mention of the situation in 11 hich 11c find ourscl1es politicall~·. A fe11 weeks ago, :-. Jr. llosmcr of Uti ca, 1\ l iss., spoke to us on the work being done in the South in the cause of negro educatio n by Prof. lloltzclaw. l ie c:-.plaincd that this man, a negro graduate of Tu!>kegcc, had started wi thout mone.1· or friends, and stated tha t he had accomplished h is pu rpose of building a school for illiterate negroes by the force of the 1ision 11hich he had. In spite of the co urage neccs!>ary t o enab le a speaker (or an editor) to use that much-abused word serious!.,·. 11e vent ure not onl _y to agree 11 ith him, but to recommend the usc of the same so rt of 1 ision in our national clealtngs; to recommend that the " liberty, justice and humanit)" talk we hear 11hene~er the flag is displa~ed be made practical. o one thinks it sent imentalism to say t hat the flag stan ds for a variety of heroic sentiments. 1t is onl v 11 hen a man tries to make it stand for these sentiments: or acts on the principle that it. does stand for them, that he is decried as a sent imentalist. The 11ord "1ision" is employed b.' e1·ery stump politician. lie 11ill point to the flag draped arounci his picture, and announce that "here there is no Yision the peop!c perishc th; and 11 e app laud h im rapturous!.), and \'Otc for him for the sake of Yisionar.\ platform s. But if a man attem pts to enforce this con viction we call him a dreamer. It is the st ump politicia n who is a dreamer, a nd a sentimenta list : this man is tr.\ ing to 11ork in renlitics. But there arc some of us 11 ho 11 ou ld applaud and then act. \\'c belie' e that the !lag docs sta nd for Iibert.\·, fo r justice- in a word, for h u man it.\ . We believe that 11 here there is no v isio n the people do perish; twci we a rc afrn id thnt the United States may lose its Yis ion as the 11 ttr p rogresses. " \Vh ile we do these things let us be 'cr.\ clear nn cl make vcr.\ clear to all the 11 oriel "hat our moti1 cs and ou r ob jects arc. Our object is to' indicate the principles of peace and of justice in the life of the 11orld, as a~ainst selfish a nd aut ocrat ic power." \Ve belic,·c, to be sure, that according t o internationa l la11 we arc justified in lig hting ; a nd tha t according to popular morality we a rc forced t o it. But during the terrible war that is upon us, let us nc1 cr lose sight of "hat we arc lighting for. Other nations may fight fo r conquest, but not America. The~ may 11agc 11ar in selllshness, in narr<m patriotism, but we cannot. \Ve sta nd before the 11orlcl, the a\ owed and accepted c ham pion of brotherhood. We have not made t his claim as a poet ic conceit or a corwent iona l but harmless boast. \\'c ha,·c made it beca use 11 c believed it. It has made our eountr.' more than a nation, and our love fo r it more than patriotism. \\'e ha'e made it beca use 11e bclic,·ed that, more than a n,\ other country, 11c had a right to it. Let us remember that our ori gin and existence as a nation arc different from those o f a ny other country. The Germ ans in Europe may get together a nd ligh t the French in Europe, the European English ma~ disconcert the European Turk but we propose t o set against Germany forces made up of Germans. \\'c say they arc Americans no11, and .so they are-German.\' has contri buted them t o us. Ever~ nation has helped to ma ke up th at vast, har monious consolidation - America. To be a n Ame rican is to be first so mething else. T o be a loyal America n is not to love a certain amou nt o f la nd a nd water, or the people 11 ho lil'c within its boundaries, or e1 e n a certa in form of go1·ern mc nt. The most patriotic American is the cosmopolitan. The tru est citizen is the most a rde nt ad ,·ocatc of humanity. The loyal German must love Germany, and the loyal Frenchman must lo,·c Fra nce; but the lond Amer ica n must love the world . Let us hold this in mind·" hen ''e t ake up a rm s against Germany. We a re not lightin g the people o f Germany. \\'e cannot, "ithout gi v in ~ up t his greatest of o ur t radi t ions, for the sake of which we ha1 e a lrcncly giYen up the \ l onroe Doctri ne a nd the polic)· of keeping clear of foreign cntnnglemcnts. either are 11 c lig ht ing Ger ma ny as n personal cncmj but as a foe to liberty. And 11·c a rc not a llies of any nati on that may light for a nationa l in t e rest, but only of the nations that light for interests co mmon to a ll. If 11 e 11 in, our on !) inclcmnit.\' shn ll be the establishmcl}floof democracy in the lands we will have conquered, and for ou rsel\'es "a great reunion 11 itll"'ou r foe."

The reason for this is that for the benefit of the appla udin~ wanclstancl he sets forth the !!;<><>d points of the school, a nd for the benelit and pri\ ate delectation or the students he ell\ dis to so me e'\tent on their faults. But 11c take this opportun it,\- to certil\ that, ''berea~ 11c kno11 that Pres. \la:-.ll'ell is kn o" n and admired mer the State, he is not on l.' better kno11n but more admi red in the \\'inona ormal School. \\'e re~pect him as a man '' ho hold~ a respo nsi ble position because he is the man for the place. \\'c kn o11 that altho he works quieti.' , he is constant!.' occupied 11 ith plans and efforts to imprme the ~chool. \\'c admire him for his e'\ecuti,·c abilit.' , hi::. high ~tand ard s and his scholarship.

H E following poem is taken from "Skinny," a play, not yet completed, by !\Irs. Chorpenning and ~ lr. Stockton, which will probably be produced at some future date. The curtain rises on a stage flooded with brilliant moonlight. From the distance comes the far song of a nightherder, rising and falling as he approaches and passes the point nearest the house, but loud enough to be understood at c\路cry point:


So ho! So ho! Around I go, Around the herd in a circle, 0, An' I sing a song, fer to keep 'em still, An' they likes the song as the critters will. So ho! So ho! They stand an' hunch, As the wind gits under their risin' hair. Er they lay in spots where the shadders bunch, An' they rattle their horns as they're layin' there. So ho! So ho! If the wind gits gay, Er a covotc howls er a storm comes out, Then the_y: stamp their feet an' they edge away, An' begin a-millin' an' weavin' about. So ho! So ho! I ride an' ride, An' a cow bawls out, an' the moon shines down, An ' all on a sudden t he world is wide 'T,,路ccn me an' the girl that's a-waitin' in town.

To A Bird


II ENCE comes that wondrous song of pure content To summon dawn from hidden realms of sleep! What mystic spirit of the ai r is sent As some inspiring harp that angels keep, To breathe a soulful mclod~路 so deep, When e'en the winds a rc lulled in peaceful dreams, And all the world in sacred silence seems! \\'hat golden voice that has not power to speak, Yet in its cha rmed dialect unknown Can tell the hungry soul what joys to seck, Uplifts, inspires, thru its magic tone! An angel voice it is that sings a lone. The depth and greatness of that melody I\ lust rouse the sou I to rise in harmony. 0 soft-,vingecl creature of the morning air, Sing to the ear of spring your heav'n-taught strain; And " 路aft me to the spirit-land, fore'er, To hear those liquid notes that soothe all pain, Those notes that tune the heart in love to reign. Reveal to me the greatness of the dawn; 0 creature more than bird, sing on, sing on! L. \V. 39

" SO here I am, after going thru a thoro stage of gathering, assi milating, abstracting and applying. It is mostly appl_ving now." "Oh, Jean, you sound like 1\tiss Gildcmeistcr, a Ia t,,.o years ago." It was about five o'clock in the afternoon of an April clay. T,,·o girls seemed to forget absol utely that they ,,·ere in a schoolroom and that it was grO\Ying late. Mary, on her way home from vacation, had stopped orr for a short visit with Jean, her pal and roomm'l.te three years before. "\\'ell," Jean turned ,,·ith a smi le toward i\lary, " I do hope you don't th ink that none of that soaked in. Why," with a reminiscent t,,·inklc, "some things have actually soaked in so far that I can remember the minute details of their occurrence.': "But I don't remember doing much of af1\·thing but getting acquainted for the first few ,,·ccks," she added. "The Juniors' Hallowe'en Party to the Seniors seemed to be our first great event. Don't you remember how Bud .\loran appointed the committees, and how .\lr. .\Iaxwcll read their names from the platform? When my name was mentioned 1 can see myself now, turning to meet the illuminated faces that would greet me. They never moved a muscle. Eviclcntl.v the faculty were used to holding offices." "Yes, I was on a committee too," interrupted !\lary, ''but there "·ere fou r h undred on with me. \1 'e were the Clean-up Committee." "You mean you did the work of the Clean-up Committee that never was," an~wercd Jean, laughing. "What came next, Jean? You seem to remember fairlv well." "Work, my clear," said J can, "an endless stretch of work- time punctuated on ly by the appearance of pink slips and a few days of getting down to business. But don't rorget that we gradually made an impression on those Seniors. Finally it came to pass that the Senior stood not alone in grandeur great and solitude, but by his side, in athletics, love and war, stood the Junior!" ";.. lcrc.d" exclaimed .\I ary . "And also that we were becoming prominent in the eyes of the facult,·. Don't YOU remember Dr. Dickerson found--" "A debttcr!" said ~J can. "Yes, Philip and Bud were beginning to make Dr. Dickerson think he had found someone who could reall v understand him." " .\ tliss Smith-- " j ean started again. "Found Daphne Dyer," prompted Mary. "Yes, our class all agreed that .\liss Smith found the best 'find.' And don't you remember how man.\· Juniors shook a nd grew faint as they went daily to i\ liss Sprague's room, and then the next term how we would find these same Juniors- -" "Prodaiming her \Yondcrs unto the whole sc hool," broke in Mary. "Well, t hey weren't far off, either. I tell you, ~hry, I learned Aritbmelic in that class, as I had never learned Arithmetic before, and when I finished I had used .\lci\furry's 'How to Study' to advantage." "Yes, yes, teacher, what comes next?" "i\ lary, you ought to know that nominations came next. You kno,,· we ,,·ere the starr of life around school \Yhile the Seniors were put thru the mill, and we did everything imaginable to get them off. Then they graduated, and we little sisters stood on the lower steps ,,·hile our big ones passed oYer the threshold of life." "Poetically inclined," ~Iary spoke to the bird on the window sill. "J can, we also had big brothers. But let's see. I can't recall our next 'first clay' half as Yividly, can you, Jean?"




Mary awaited an answer, and in a moment it came : "September fifth, Lawn Pa rty at Morey Ha ll-one good time; September sixteenth, school picnic on the bluffs ; September twenty-seconc, faculty reception t o students at Morey Ha ll- I ushered; September twentyeighth, lecture by- -" "See here, Jean, \Yhat a rc yo u doing?" exclaimed ~ Iary. " I didn't call for the · calenda r." She turned, and knew what it meant, when purple a nd ,vhite met her eyes. J ean had been reading from the Y. W. di rectory. "Lecture by Dr. Winship," continued Jean. " I missed that. On e bad move in my history." "Don't forget t hose football games we attended," added ~ Iary. " And a lso I iss Richa rds' teas. And don't you know how much fun we had hiking, and having picnics on the bluffs, and then again a ll the fun at t he llarvest Pa rty "·e gaye to the J un iors? If it hadn't been for student teaching coming in a nd gently upsetting my nerves, I might have really enjoyed that term of school. "Now it was you, J ean, who a lways found enjoyment in taking those spelling tests, a nd spending two hours regula rly each day in practising t he Palmer mo,·ement.

Didn't she shou lder half the worry of getting you togged for the K. G. Pa rty, a nd didn't she lie awake half a night wondering how J ean could dispose of her tickets for Dr. Steiner's lecture? " "Oh, Mary, ca n't you remember from that time on the glorious times we had at class play p ractice? I can hea r the Piper calling Veronika yet, and the night it was given- -" "Six o'clock, ladies." It was the janitor with his keys. "Just like Mr. Strife," t hey giggled as they hastened out .




Junior Class History MARGUERITE CoNHAIM

(Wi th Apologies to Kipling)


OU must know, 0 Best Beloved, that the events that I will chronicle and tell to you happened many, many moons ago, long before it was the custom of ormal students to take visitors out into the moonlight to gaze upon Sugar Loaf, even before Kratz's was founded, and tbat, as you know, happened long, long ago. A little yellow canary bird heard this tale from his grandmother, and told it all to me, with various and sundry additions of his own . (You must not forget that the canary bird was yellow, because that shows how very bright he was.) Draw your chair up close to the fireplace, Best Beloved, and listen in-tent-ly while I tell you the tale as it was told to me. Said the canary bird, with a little rustle of his wings, and a little wink of his eye, and a little 0irt of his tail : "'Twas in the early part of September, rgr6, that the vast horde of Juniors poured down upon the peaceful town of Winona. They thronged into the Normal Assembly and gazed boldly into the eyes of the faculty seated high upon the sh rine before them. Truly," said the canary bird, and be ought to know, "the lofty sweep of their alabaster brows made them dis-tinc-tive-ly different (that's magic) from any class that had previously graced this lofty institution. (You must not forget that the canary bird was yel low.) D ays passed, and in the library the Juniors could be seen studiously and interestedly pouring over such literature as the ' Literary Digest,' a nd 'The lndependcnt'-but, then, from the beginning they were a n unusual class. Even the Seniors admitted it." The canary bird hesitated, ate a little birdseed, winked his left eye knowingly and continued. "At first, however, the Seniors did not associate with the riff-raff, and held themselves strangely aloof, butmore days passed, and the Seniors succumbed to the charms of the Ju niors completely and finally. In fact, they became unhappy when not basking in the light of their presence, and actually forced themselves upon the Juniors most impolitely." The canary bi rd sharpened his beak Yiciously on a piece of cuttle bone, and shifted uneasily from one legjto the other. "But that," said he, "is another story." Thus, it came to pass, ere the snow had covered Sugar Loa f, that the Junior Class met, and elected their class officers (for t hat is an ancient and venerable custom) and these arc the names of the officers they chose : President ................................. ... ......... H AROLD RrLEY Vice President ...... . .... . ....... . .. . ...... ... .. ... MrLDRED CARHART Secretary .................................... . ......... R AE WHrTTOM T rcasurer ............................................. I IA ROLO OLSON The canary bird cocked his head to one side and ch irped contemplatively. "True to the high standard of the class, they were faithful to their trusts; they performed their respective duties efficiently and capably. The class was organized! ! No longer were the Juniors a scattered mass of individuals, but a complete, compact, co-ordinated Force." The canary bird warbled melodiously and continued: "One of 'em told me in confrdence (but I know you won't breathe it to a soul) that the Juniors really weren't as bad as they looked! The townspeople, too, recognized their worth, a nd treated them royally. Many of the Juniors reciprocated by join ing the various organizations. As a class they took active interest in the effort to raise the standard of the school in both spelling and penmanship (those are things grown-ups think quite important) and played no mean part in school athletics, dramatics, and literary societies. But," said the canary bird as he settled himsElf comfortably on his perch (and you must not forget that he was yellow), "you mustn't think that the Juniors had no good times, because they cer-tain-ly did. Mr. Holzinger took them on many long, delightful hikes, picnics thrived, and a Harvest Party given by the devoted Seniors was a tremendous success." The canary bird stopped for 47

want of breath, and chirped weakly, "All in all, this class ''"as so wonderful in the progress it made in all lines, that I heard it whispered that the Juniors had a n offer to make to the faculty, namely, that in view of the fact that the faculty had \Yorked so hard, the Juniors were willing t o grant t hem a leave of absence of one year, during which ti me certain members would fill their respective positions and continue their uplifting work." The canary bird made no attempt to conceal the fact that he was very, very sleepy, and ch irped, "That is a ll I can tell yo u toda y, but let it be understood that words arc inadeq uate to express how high th is class stands in my estimation; the year 19 16-17 w·ill be remem bered for many things, but t he shi ning light gleaming forth first and foremost is the Junior Class of Winona orrnal." This, 0 Best Beloved, is the history of t he J uniors, told by the canary bird (and you must not forget that the canary bird was yellow), a nd HE ought to know.

H E most interesting man I ever met was a medium-sized, ruggedly-built man whose irregular Celtic features wore a mysterious expression only relieved by a pair of sparkling blue eyes and a shock of black hair. His appearance was interesting and he was interesting. Our introduction was simple, being merely "swapping names." But as we lay on opposite cots of a hospital ward, he grew more and more confidential, until I had the following story complete-a graphic record of hard luck a nd grim cou rage: " [ was raised on the Conamarah flats in St. Paul. Then the old folks went to Tacoma, Washington. Punk burg! I got so lonesome for the flats I started drifting. I was only a seventeen year old kid- pretty nervy kid, tho. After months of mooching and barely keeping on deck, I landed in Omaha dead broke. It was on a Sunday evening just at dusk. A Dago hand-organ grinder played ' Home, Sweet I lome' on a corner across the way. I got so lonesome I took t he next side-door Pullman for home. "But I only stayed three weeks, and started on the bum again. Been gone nine years now, and haven't kept in touch with the folks. It ain't their fault. See this letter? She's got some J ack in it, too. Look there, against the light; looks like a fiver. I' ll have the mailman take it, a nd send it back unclaimed. T hey don't get a hunch where I am ! Don't need the cash right now. Got a little wad in my shoe. Keep it under you r hat, tho, see? "By t he way, I got run in at St. Paul. Got mixed up with a bunch of birds that robbed a jewelry store and got railroaded for two years. Do you know what t he t hird degree is? Well, it's simply ~t walloping that wou ld make you swear your name was Halley's Comet, and you only heard it once in a hundred years. See that crook in my nose? T hat's third degree bunk. My looks might have passed in a side-show before, but me for t he menagerie now. After six months, I and my pal decided to jump at the first chance. We let a nother guy in on it, because he was hip to the racket , and we didn't want him to squeal. One late afternoon the three of us were working with one guard in the lower end of the yard . We rushed t he guard and k nocked him cold. T he other feJ!ows got over the wall all right, but I got picked in the leg. I ran till I got in sight of t he river, and the guards were close at hand and I had to give up. The honorable quack said it was six months in t he hospital before the bullet could be remo ved . "The next streak of to ugh luck I had was in this burg. Why, I was froze so ha rd to the ground in the switch-yardsGawd knows how I got there-that they pried me loose with a crowbar. T he doctor's going to peel my hands today. T hey were in such tough shape he was going to clip t hem ofT, at first. Gee, t he white ghost is prowling around. I suppose she's t ry ing to coop me in for the doc. Gee, the nurses are all scared to death of her! But I ain't afraid of her, nor her of me. So we get in some scr umptious arguments. 'Well, so long," and he tip-toed out.

The Kindergartners FACULTY 1\IEETI G PLACE- Draw ing Roo m. P. 1\l. KEY-WORD a nd TOPIC SE TE ICE- Kinde rgartners.


1\h~. i\l AXWELL (look of anticipation on jovial counte na nce) : And now if 1\Ir. D ickerson has no more criticism or objections to ma ke concerning the Kindergartners, we will close. (Doctor Dickerson clears tbroat preparator.~· to speahing, and attempts to rise. ) i\lJ SS SuTHERLAND (gleam of battle in her e.v es): The Kindahgahten Depahtment is a dignified one. I am s ua h that the young women now in the Depahtment a h measu ring up to the stanclahd. I haYc found t hem most reliable girls. (Vigorous bobbing of beads signifies faculty approval. D octor D ickerson looks sarcastic

and allempts to rise.) l'vi HS. CHOHPENN INC: Yes, they certainly-arc reliable-gi rls . Now, for- exa mple, if their theme papers- are not read y to hand in-I can a lways rely upon their excuses bei ng- carefull y- prepared. In one case I was-calml:v informed that in order to keep me from "perish ing from mon oto ny," a- stu dent had changed- her t opic a nd so hadnot fl n ished her paper. (Doctor Dickerson's expressire face reL·eals determination . He attempts to rise. ) I\lR. GAYLORD: The Kind ergartne rs l 11avc had in my classes a re certainly fa r more intelligent than the average· no rmal student. They know how to express t he mselves through their volu ntary and involuntary muscles a nd eve n thru their glands ! (Doctor Dickerson, a twisted sbeet ligbtning smile zig-zagging its painful wa.~- o'er bis coun-

tenance, attempts to rise efficiently and ,vet not appear burried. ) M1ss RICHARDS: l wish t o say a fter a careful study and many personal conferences I have judged the young women in the Kindergarten D epartment to be genteel young women. They do not chew g um, talk to the young mcn- (At this point D octor Dickerson, enraged at tbe implied view of his sex, snorts expressively.) I\l 1SS RI CHARDS (after squelching D octor Dickerson with one icy glance): Nor do the~; do a ny of the thi ngs which a re unbecoming to teachers! I mean, teachers with a b ig T! (Doctor Dickerson, mobile lips curling slightly, puts one over on the faculty by not attempting

to rise.) l\liss SA~1PSOI': :

I don't kn ow very much about the Kindergarten people but this much I do know, that when it comes to playing the baby games they're certain ly rig ht t here. 50


(Doctor Dickerson makes an attempt to rise.) Miss SMITH (all in one breatb ): I a m so glad the opportunity has been given me to ex press my opin ion as to the dear beloved Kindergarten girls. They are so musical, so lovely, so witty and so sweet and so agreeable in every way. MR. MAXWELL : Surely, Mr. Dickerso n, such unan imity of feeling should convince you that the you ng ladies a re most pleasi ng. But for the necessity of my performing janitor duties I would have had th e tim e in which to make the acqu a in tance socially of these charming girls. But as it is g ro\\¡ing very late, nearly a quarter of six, a nd incidentally the re is to be a volley ball match, let us close. No dou bt, D octor D ic kerson, in time your ideas will grow¡ to be more like Miss Conhaim's.







The Story of the Kindergarten Club


NCE upon a t ime, a bout a year a nd a ha lf ago, in the midst of a whole family of organizations, the Kindergarten Club was born. In its short life this child has learned not only to st and on its own feet, but a lso to reach out and in its own small way to help others. The Day Nursery will vouch for this when it thinks of the care its child ren have received on busy Saturday mornings. Who would believe that a child could invent Kinder dolls and make t hem so cleverly that the rest of t he family wanted them and thus helped to make a little sister Kindergarten in China happy? Such "prosperity" this child showed the night it entertained the family that everyone marvelled, and agreed that it was not only keeping up with the rest of the family, but also was learning to take its own part in suggesting the way to play. Sometimes this child plays by itself and when it remembers the good times it had at the outdoor and indoor picnics it chuckles with glee. Even as this record of its activities goes t o press there comes an invitation for it t o play at the home of Mrs. C hoate, one of the early kindeq~artners of the Normal School, and always a friend of t he department. But its most chen shed memory will be that of the Christmas song, when its friends of today a nd former days gathered with it to spend a happy hour which was marked by the gaining of that spirit which should help it to grow. Already the Kindergarten Club has begun to take its place among the leaders of the family. II. L.



The Forum Literary Society TUDY and \\·ork are bound to have full sway in our Winona Normal School, but thr~t ~~II this we ha,·c felt a gingery seasoning of social activities, athletics, and literary SOCietieS. One source of this seasoning has l~een the Forum Litera ry Society. This society aims to do two things : to acquaint students with prominent writers and their works, and to create and promote fellowsh ip among the students. Specifically, the literary aim th is vear has been to stuck American humorists, American \vomen writers, and the I ndian poet, Tagore. When the current events movement became prominent, the Forum Literary Society showed its interest in the matter b.Y devoting several meetings to the discussion of up-to-date occurrences. The aim to create and promote fello\YShip among students has proved quite as successful as the literary ,,·ork. Our initiation "·as fdled with jollity and good-nature, our sleighr ide with vim· and cnth•Jsiasm. I ntellectually and socially we feel that the Forum Literary Society has had a valuable place in our ormal School life. N. L.






H E Tri-Sigma is a literary society, which is known for the q uantity of the work it accom plishes a nd the quality of its membershi p. This year we have enjoyed the literature of Rabindranat h T ago re, Alfred Noyes a nd Alice Brown . P rimarily th is society is continued for literary purposes, yet it has a secondary value, that of providing social opportunities. For instance, there was the initiation party, when many Ju niors were taken in as new members. In this way the society helped the J uniors t o become acquai nted and make friends. The party was a big success, but we will not disclose a ny of the mysteries of initiation night. We will leave them fo r our J un ior members to practice on the Juniors of 19 17. Anot her phase of the social value was shown at basketball games, where the m uchdesi red school spirit reigned. Anyone attending these games, especially the ones between the Forum and t he Tri-Sigma, would realize how much enthusiasm t here was over them. We had a splend id team, which won the first ga me but lost the second. We think t hat t he Tri-Sigma is a f1n e society. We hope that it will continue its work, and aid futu re members as much as it has aided us! s. K.


The Board of Control Are we in it? Well, 1 guess! Tbe Atbletic A ssociation! Yes! Yes! Yes!

ROM the very beginning of its existence, the Board of Control of the Athletic Association has been of unique and u-kn ow interest to the school. It did good to the soul of many an auditor to hear the solemn debates concerning the budgeting of the athletic money. Of course, the women on the Boa rd wanted the men's athletics to have the most money ! But, chivalrous and gene rous as ever, t he men . on the Board wanted t he women's branch t o have-well, no! not all ; but, well-how would a neat one-third do? But orato rical skill is not the on ly spell-binding possession of t he Board of Control. All visitors were deeply impressed by the fullness a nd p romptness of attendance. Very few organizations can boast of prompt and perfect attendance at every meeting. Let it be said with a ll due respect t hat this organization is no exception. I n fact, t he momentous occasion which culmi nated wit h t he above print was the drawing card of the year. During the wait preceding the event one of t he Board mem bers excit edly exclaimed, "Oh, haven't we a ny business to t ransact? \Vc're a ll here !" Isn't it the truth? ! B. R.




Woman's Branch H E Woman's Branch cannot be beat For work and fun and daring feat! Just get it started and you 'II sec What whoops and yells a nd cheers can be.


The gym with life was surely fi lled, From every corner it just spilled; With doughnuts fresh and hot coffee \Ve quit the evening's gaietee.

At games of sport it sure can ~'ell, And yell and yell and yell like- wellFor spirit and for pep you'll know A livelier bunch did never grow.

We've built two pairs of bobs this year For coasting is a pleasure here, So on the bluffs just take a slide Or hitch the horse and have a ride.

All women in the school may join By paying clown a little coin, And to the games you then may go Without another t hot of dough.

Around the tow n you'll go so fast Your cares will vanish to the past; T he Woman's Branch you'll cheer, you bet, While on the bobs yo u try to set.

"Come, come with us and have some funA bloomer party's just begun"; September thi~tieth this was heard, And many another similar word.

l f you've no sportsmanship in you, Just go around a-looking blue; You cannot join our lively crowd For of our "rep" we're very proud.

If you've no ginger, life, and go, To this gay branch you arc a foe, But if you've lots of push and 11:et, You'll make this Branch more li,¡elier yet.

The Catholic Girls' Club organization which has done much to1mrd promoting the mental and moral welfare of the school is the Catholic Girl s' Club. The active members of th is association have met every Wednesday evening in the St. Thomas hall, a nd very faithfully carried out t he ends for vvhich t he club was organized. The C lub divided its year into equal parts, one half of the meetings being devoted to rel igious training by mea ns of t a lks, readings and helpful suggestions, a nd the other half t o amusement and recreation . For the members believed that an equal amount of seriousness and gaiety ,,¡as necessary to keep their equilibrium. Some of the social events especially enjoyed were the Kids' Pa rty, t he Hard Times Party, a nd a dancing party. Ma ny pleasant evenings were also spent together in an infor mal way. The clu b had t he opportu nity of hea ring many interesting a nd profitable talks by some very able speakers. The students belonging to this association full y a ppreciate the privileges they have enjoyed, and hope that future Normal students may profit by t hem . C. K .


Music Supervision



H E fi rst class in the supervisio n of music g raduated in I9l.J.· The enrollment has steadi ly increased, a nd the depa rtme nt now has ten members, t hree of whom are Seniors. This course is of specia l va lue to people interested in music, because, in additio n to the adYanced ormal diploma, the graduates of this depa rt ment receive a specia l certificate fo r the supervision of mu sic in schools. P erh aps t he work of the dep::trtmen t can best be d escribed by telling what our Sen ior members have each been doing. During the past year M ae f\liddleton has d irected the f\ Ie.cDowell Club, a chorus of about one hundred onnal girls, which meets every day. She has a lso spent each Friday in La C rescent, supen ·ising the mus ic of the public schools t here. I n connection with th is, s he has d irected a Community Song FestiYa l a nd a Cantata. Da phne Dyer, popula rl y called "our i\lelba," has directed the music in the first grade of the model school. Hildrecl Thu row, a star student of ha rmony, has [l.ssisted in directing the MacDowell Club. She is a n acco mplished pianist. These girls have good positions offered them for next .\·ca r. f\ l iss Thurow will superv ise the music in th e sc hools at Sanborn; M iss !Vlicldleton is to wor k in t he depa rt ment of music in the State Ag ricul t u n.d School at Morris; a nd M iss Dyer expects to s upervise mu sic as well as to te.1ch it in t he first grade at La ke i\ l innetonka .

Our Little Theater E of t he most interesting inno\·ations in the life of t he school during rg16- 17 has been the establishment of Our Little Theater. There has ever been among the students a keen interest in dramatic work, and from time to time groups of those interested have prepared pla~·s, but the lack of any arrangement for even simple presentation at all su itable has caused the interest to subside. At last, however, thru a gift of the class of 1916, the dramatic energy of the school has been proYicled with a wholesome legitimate outlet in addition to that g iven each year b:'' the class play. Ou r Little Theater became possible in this way. After the accounts of the class of 1916 had been settled there remained in the treasury one hundred and twenty dollars. Partly because this balance was the resu lt of the phenomenal receipts from the class play, "A Mid-summer ight's Dream," a nd partly because ~f the generous spirit of those who




wished in leaving to fill for others a need they had felt, the money was given by una nimous class vote to the Reading Department to be used as Miss Slifer, t he teacher of Reading, should deem wise. With the openi ng of the school year, the equipment for the theater was pla nned and made. It is simple, artistic and durable. There are sixteen eight by three panel screens, stained brown and covered with green burlap. These screens ma.v be lashed together to provide stage space, ten by eighteen, a nd small dressing rooms. There a re three practical windows and four doors, which, when not in usc, become a pa rt of the bac kground. There is a soft brown silk curtain, and a arcen stage cloth; and footlights emphasize the stage picture. This equipment, because of its simplicity and neutrality, may easily be converted into a setting for a ny simple play. The theater is partly set up in Normal Ilall during rehea rsals, and when performances arc given it is carried to the Assembly Room a nd are ranged there withi n half an hour. Through the establishment of Our Little Theater, over forty persons have been able to participate in dramatic performances. Plays were cast by Miss Slifer, who chose the participants from those who manifested interest. It was not the aim to make a few stars, but to include as many as possible. With the exception of one or two minor parts, each play has been acted by a new group. The students of the school have also had demonstrated the possibility of st aging simple plays in the communities in which they are to teach. Our equipment might easily be duplicated a nd used in any good sized room. While the work has been under Miss Slifer's supervision, a student coach, responsible for rehearsals, staging, costumes and properties, has been in charge of each play. ot only have those who have ta ken part acquired a more definite working knowledge of dramatic work, but t hose who have seen the plays, wh ich have been varied in nature, have received some suggestion concerning the t ype of play suitable for amateurs. The venture of Our Little Theater has shown that dramatic entertainment, other tha n moving pictures, may be provided for ten cents, our admission fee. The members of the school have been eager in thei r support, a nd the people of Winona haYe been pleased to come a nd come again. Even in its first season t he Dra matic Association has entered upon extension work. I n February a play was given before a. responsive audience made up of superintendents and teachers who had come t ogether to study t he problems of teaching Reading. Early in March two p lays were t aken to M innesota City a nd given in the hall there for t he benefit of the school with which the Normal School has recently become associated. Seven plays have been p repared during the season. Several of them have been performed more than once. Our repertoire includes "The Falcon " by Tennyson, "The Kleptomaniac" by Cameron, "The Maker of Dreams" by Oliphant D own, "The Neighbours" by Zona Gale, "Miss Civilization" by Richard Harding Davis,¡ "The Ilou r Glass" by Yeats, a nd "Joint Owners in Spain " by Alice Brown. At t he close of our first season we have a growing stage equipment, a comfortable ba nk balance, and a small reputation. Since all t he work must be done during the recreation hours of the teachers a nd the students there is a lim it to what may be done, but the enthu siasm of those interested looks forward eagerly to the second season for Our Little Theater.

The Country Life Club


HE Country Life Club owed its success this year t o the enthusiasm and loyalt y of its members a nd t o t he strong wor k of its program committee. Forty students interested in rural problems reorganized the club. The programs oft en grew out of work don e in the rural depart ment. The suggestion for one very strong program came from the rural methods class. There the students had discussed the relative merit s of the one-room a nd the consolidated school. The argument was carried over to the C. L. C. in the form of a debate. At another time the students in rural sociology ''"ere divided on t his question: was it just fo r a farmer to refuse to sell his produce until prices ""ere satisfactory to him? A group of these students debated t he question at a meeting of the C. L. C. Every progra m put on by t he Committee was instructive, interesting and well handled. The Country Life Club did not emphasize work alone. At one time the members had a unique party, where each one dressed to represent a child in a distr ict school. At anothe r time the club held a big picnic-an all-clay a ffa ir- on one of the bluffs around Winona. These social times were suggestive of pa rties a nd picnics that could be wor ked out in a rural school. The work of the C. L. C. went even fur t her than instructive meetings and good times. It gave its members an ideal to work for. It showed them the possibilities of the rural school. It taug ht them the lesson of service, for the C. L. C. believes that t he teacher who goes into a country school, raises its standard and brings new life and fres h interests into the li ves of country people, docs one of the greatest acts of service.

At another t ime the students in rural sociology were d ivided on this question : "~as it just fo r a far mer to refuse to sell his produce unt il prices were satisfac tory to him? A group of t hese students debated the q uestion at a meet ing of t he C. L. C. Every program p ut on by the Committee was instructive, interest ing and >vel! handled. The Count ry Life Club did not emphasize work alone. At one t ime the mem bers had a un iq ue party, where each one dressed t o represent a child in a dist r ict school. At another time the club held a big 'p icnic- a n all-clay a ffair- on one of the blu ffs a round Wi nona. These social ti mes were s uggestive of part ies and picnics that could be worked out in a rural school. The work of the C. L. C. went even furt her than instructive meetings and good t imes. It gave its members an ideal to work for. It showed them the possibilities of t he rural school. It t a ught them t he lesson of service, for the C. L. C. bel ieves that the teacher who goes into a country school, ra ises its st a ndard and brings new life an d fresh interests into the lives of cou nt ry people, does one of the greatest acts of service.




Y. W. C. A. WELL remember how glad I was to get the little note from one of the Y. W. C. A. girls one August, saying she would meet me and help me to get acquainted when I arrived. The Senior girls had made a big pennant with "Normal" printed on it in purple, so when I saw t hat, I went over to where it and several of the girls were. It was delightful to be met, and made to feel that someone, among all the strangers, cared. Early in the fall we had the initiation ceremony that always closes the membership campaign. All the girls wore white and carried lighted candles in the processional, and oh, it was so solemn and so lovely. We have our Y. W. C. A. meetings every other Monday afternoon. Sometimes the girls lead the meetings a nd sometimes we have a speaker from t he fac ulty or from town. Whichever it is the meeting is helpful and inspirational, and gives one something different and worth while to think about. Last year theY. W. started the plan of getting out directories each year, which contain the names of the faculty and students, with t heir horne and Winona addresses, telephone numbers, and other data. They are as good as a World Almanac for information, and far more indispensable! For some time t he Y. W. has mai ntained a rest room, but lately it has been sadly in need of "frxing up." T he chairman of ou r rest room committee chose a lively group of girls to help her this year, and by making new curtains, couch covers and pillows, and buying new blankets, they have made it a really frne place to rest. The last of August there is a Y. W. conference at Lake Geneva for all the Normal schools and colleges in the North Central freld , to which two of our girls a re planning to go. They will get fine ideas for next year, so that their work may be bigger and better than ours has been. But t he best part of the Y. W. can't be written about, because it's the friendship part. I really believe that this is the biggest part of a ll, for it means so much in the life of every Y. W. C. A. girl. F. C.

HE study of Home Economics is the study of food, clothing and shelter, therefore students specializing in this department are required to take cooking for three terms, home management for two, sewing for two, and textiles for one, besides their other g~neral subjects. The school is equiped splendidly for the presentation of the work, and more persons have taken advantage of it this past year than ever before, altho, some merely took the subjects as electives, because of the practical value. During the first of the year, owing to Miss Folger's absence, Miss Farnum satisfactorily took charge of the cooking classes. At this time the class in Cookery I studied chiefly the composition and economic value of foods. This was accomplished by having laboratory work three t imes a week and theory twice. That one is as essential as the other is proved by the following incident: Teacher- Name a by-product of corn, Miss Jones. Miss Jones-Corned beef. The members of the class gave a dinner to Miss Ensfielcl and the teachers of the rural school districts, which was appreciated. Miss Folger returned for the winter term's work, and efficiently and patiently guided the class in Cookery II , which was kept busy serving meals. I n groups of two, the girls served breakfasts to four persons at the expense of sixty cents; in groups of three, luncheon to six at the expense of one dollar and a quarter. An eight course dinner was given to the March graduating class. Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell acted as host and hostess, and the cookery class as caterer. In Cookery III the study of the needs of the body was emphasized, and the following ¡ factors vvere considered as influences: size and shape, occupation, age, sex and climate. The first work of the term dealt with normal individuals, the later >vith abnormal. During the study of the selection, preparation and preservation of foods, special attention was given to plant diseases, that is, to their origin, nature, prevention and cure. How little is known of the same the following indicates: Teacher- What are spores, Miss Smith? Miss Smith- Well, I don't kno\v-but, I think they arc germs just about ready to hatch. The Home Management classes studied proper housing, house construction, furnishing and decorating, care and sanitation, systematizing of labor, division of income, keeping of accounts, marketing and laundering. Miss Folger had charge of this work also. 66


:\I iss Gro,¡er, who is capable and good natured, was the leader of the sewing and textile classes. The work in Sewing J consisted of plain sewing and simple dressmaking, t hat of Sewing II of advanced dressmaking, and that of Sewing III of millinery and ve ry fancy sewing. Exhibitions were given regularly, showing the resu lts. T he department is strictly up-to-date, as is evidenced by the" Fas hion Show," held in chapel, on April the thirteenth. Previously no one but "Jenny" had the satisfaction of appearing decorated in the pretty raiments, but on this occasion real live models- blondes and brunettes, most charmi ng and graceful- marched onto the platform in small groups t o the music of Mendelssohn's "Spring Song" rendered by Miss aomi Lilj eberg. Miss Rae Whittom identified t he material of each dress for the awe-struck spectators. In Textiles all fibres or materials capable of bein<Y woven are studied. The purpose of th is study is the development of judgment from tl1e artistic, hygienic, historical and econo mic standpoints. The subject of Home Economics has a two-fold value; it is educational a nd social. The former value is clue to the fact that these subjects require thought and training, and cle\'elop appreciation of other sciences. The latter value consists in the fact that knowledge of this nature is essential to man, in order that he may uplift and better his condition.


Oi'viORROW, oh! so early, my beloved, my beloved, 1 will rise and do t he cleaning of t he room, my dear, the room; And before the bells arc ringing, I'll be up and gai ly singing, With the mop pail gaily swinging, With the d ust-pan and the broom.

Clean t he room, and dusted nicely, my beloved, my beloved, Spick and span for us to live in, for a nother busy week; And my prayer goes up, "Oh, when it's done, may spreads be given elsewhere, So that we will not as our share, For the dustpan have to seek."

H E past year has been espec[ally successful a long musical lines, as is evidenced by the six dcl[ghtful programs wh[ch have been given. The p rograms were offered by the following societies: the St. Cecilia Society, consisting of two hund red and frfty women's voices; t he Mendelssohn Club, made up of twenty-fou r selected women's voices; the orma l Glee Club, composed of t he selected men's voices; and the MacDowell Club. T he offi cers of t hese organizati ons are as follows : St. Cecilia Society- Vi va Amundson, Lauretta I Iarrison, Elizabeth Benton, Kathleen Sandidge; Mendelssohn Club- Daphne Dyer, Evely n Rogde, Ruth Weinma n, Muriel Gor ham; Men's Glee Club- Paul Baumgartner, Earl Jewell, Hilbert Ni eha us, Philip Bourne; MacD owell Club- Anna Allen, Angela McCarthy, Frances Norma n, Grace Lee. One reason that the music of the past year pleased the public is that it had the community element in it. At least two programs given during t he year were ty pical community progra ms. The first of these programs, which was a presentation of the Lohengrin story, was given November 24th, a nd included readin gs from the Hucke! tra nslation by l\liss Slifer, and music from Wagner's opera by the St. Cecilia Society and soloists. The next program was the Yuletide Festival, which was given D ecember r5th by the Norma l chorus for the benefit of the day nursery . The t hird event which deserves specia l commen dat ion was the Song a nd Light Festival, which was given February 15th. This p rogram, which carried out t he community idea, included the "Tann hauser March " by Wagner; "The Heavens are Telling," by H ayd n; Gounod's "Sanctus"; and t he " Halleluja h Chorus," by I Iande!. These classics were followed by a group of commu nit:v songs and the program was concluded with the singing of Colburn 's delight[ ul musical selection," Winona." The Spring l\lusic Festival was the culmination of the year's special programs. The artist recital consisted of a program given by l\liss Alice Barrows, assisted by Miss Beatrice T rocndlc, of t he College of Saint T eresa, and i\liss Ilelen Sklenar. The subject chosen was "Spri ng"; and it was interpreted with a deep beauty and an a rtist ic touch t hat stirred appropriate response fro m t he audience.

Industrial Arts Club "Find Your Work, Then Work Your Find."


ilE i\lanual Training department under the guidance of Mr. Sandt and l\liss Blanche Campbell has enjoyed a busy "season." ~1iss Campbell has had charge of the Industrial Arts work in the first six grades of the l\Iodel School and the lormal Department classes in this work. These courses have been enriched by a comprehensive study of the I ndustries along the line of historic development, methods of correlation and adaptation. The l\lodel Rural School at Gilmore Valley and the fou r Associated Rural Schools located at linnesota City, East Burns Valley, Pleasant Valley and Homer have been furnished a student teacher once each week to c1rry on the work of i\ lanual Training under the supervision of Mr. Sandt. Each school had an allowance of $25 from the state which had to cover the expense of equi pment a nd material. A good beginning has been made; and, with the equipment on hand and a year's experience for a background, still more effective work may be expected ne:-.:t year. The reorganization of the Model School, making a Junior High School of the seventh and eighth grades and adding a ninth grade, has added respo nsibilities and opportunities to the department. The most important change in t he work for the year has been the introduction of moulding, which is being given to one division of the eighth grade by a student 'vho has had a year's practical experience in foundry work. Additional time and courses must necessarily be added as means and conditions permit, to make the Junior High School a real success. i\lr. Sandt has been ably assisted in carry ing on the Model School work by those specializing in J\lanual Training, "¡hose impressive facial geography graces the top of this page. The number of students taking the shopwork courses has materially increased; and, as a result, a good exhibit is looked for at the end of the term.

Galsworthy GAY F ERREY

Galsworthy's poetry we frnd the expression of Galsworthy's very self. We find him many-s ided. That is our frrst pleasure-to see in him a wealth of emotions, to find him so exquisitely responsive to a ll phases of life. \Vc find that he knows these people of whom he writes, kno\vs the nowcrs, kno\vs the sea. H e has reached deep down into the souls of a ll things a nd from th is opcn- mindeclncss, responsiveness, has come his striking characteristic- understanding and love of a ll nature and all life. We feel this deeply in "The Dream," when, confronted by death, he ni ngs out a protest agai nst leaving this earth, an earth he knows so intimately, loves so dearly. He says :


"All t he perfume and t he grace, The stealing beauty of this earth, Put out its fingers to my face, And softl y murmu red me its worth." All his nature songs are fully as lo,·ely-dclicately ha ndl ed, magically in spi rational. Ilcrc is part of his "Autumn by the Sea": " \ Ve'll hear the uncompan ionecl mu rmur of the swell, And touch the drift-wood, delica tely grey, And with our qu ickened senses smell The sca-nowers a ll t he clay !"



His Io,·e of color and movement is shown in the next two ,·erses: "

ow slow t he crimson Sun-god swathes his eye, a nd sai ls To sleep in his in numerable cloak; And gentle hea t's gold pathway fails I n autumn's opal smoke !

"Then long we'll watch the journ ey of t he soft half-moonA gold-br ig ht moth slow-spinning up the sky, And know the dark flight- a ll t oo soonOf land-birds passing by ." It is intcrestinp; to note t hat Gals,,·orthy is particularly fond of yellow. This sho,,·s itself in his s hort stories, too. ln "Buttercup Nights," fo r instance, Galsworthy fairly revels in vellO\\'. llcre"is a poem called " The Seeds of Light." It is so delightfulk characteristic of both this love of color and of movement that 1 quote it: ' "Once of a mazy a fternoon, beside that southern sea, I watched a shoal of s unn y beams come swimming close to me. Each was a whited cand le-name a-flickering in a ir; Each was a silver da ffodil astonied to be there; Each was a diving summer star, its brightness come to lave; And each a li ttle naked spirit leapi ng on the wave." An cntircl~- new aspect of Galsworthy's understanding of all life is sho"·n in his poem "Slum C ry." Gals,,·orthy has not been sensational here, but nevertheless the truth of t he poem is appalling. It could come only from a man who cared to uncover the barren, t raaic life of the slums. He speaks of the cl\\'cller in the slums as being born in degradation, witl1 childhood a night \\'ithout stars, \\'incl withd rawn, terr ifying blackness shot only ,,·ith 75

parrafin glares that scar the spirit and cru~:>h it, until at the last, beaten, this li \'ing death t·nds "here- -? "Of a poor-house morning not asking" h), Breath choked, dr.1 -e~ ed death of me staring; Faces of strangers, and no one caring God ! Who hath made me! so shall I die ! The same question \IC ask oursehes when "e read this is found in Gals\\ort h.\ 's poem " 1 A:;k.." The clays for us move swiftly, hnppil.1 b.\, the stars shine, :;oft breeze:; blo11. Can '' c go on ignoring the ugl~ fact:; of life and, "\\'anton, dra\1 forgetful breath"? Gals" ortll\' is not morbid nor embittered. 1Tc is clear-e\ eel, able to look at thest• hard facts, do ,; hat he can to right them, and able abo to sec the good things in life, and ns he sn1s, bclie1c that life is cli1·ine harmon\. This firm belief in a Perfect Plan runs thru man\ o( Gals" ortl11 's poems. lie says : · "If thru our night stalk comrades Pain And \\'rong, 'tis but the dipping half Of equipoi:;e. This life again I shall not liH•, and I \\Otdd ha,-e .\ly li 1ing soul in {ioller \\ith lo1e Of I I armon~." \\'c gain nc\\' insight into Gals11orthy 's 1ersatilc natu re 11hen 11e compare his plays "ith his poetry. Readi ng only his pia~:; one \\otdcl und oubtedly declare him a real ist. 11o11e1·er, a fter reading his poems 11e a rc amazed at the wholly charming, delicate pictures he has drawn, and wonder if a fter a ll he is not at heart an idealist. J\lan.1' of Galsworthy's salient qualities ha1c found expression in his poem "The Soul." In the fi rst verse there is the splendid " igor, power, a nd drive that is so 'itally characteristic of Galsworth~ . The second verse i:; in sharp contrast but entirely consistent "ith Gals" ort hy's nature, expressing an underh ing serenity and stren gth. The third \'Crse sho11s his capacity for io.v and love a nd beaut~; the fourth for achenture; and the fifth let me quote the \\'hole poem and then have ·' ou decide "hat it re1 eals of G:tls" orthy 's nature: ":\Iy soul's the sk~ m~ ~~~in~ sou l! The lip;htninlo!:c; flare, the thunders roll, The sun and moon and stars go by, And great "inds s" eep m~ soul, the sky! "\l y brooding sou l 1111 :;oul':. the sea!

Basketball In I 9I 6-r7 ilE basketball season of 1916-r- proved to be one of the most interesting that ou r school has e\'Cr passed thru. The first two games were played with the Eau Claire ormal School. We lost both games, alt ho the good dcfcnsi\'c work of our team prevented the scores from being too one-sided. The next contest was with Caledonia. Bv this time the men had returned from the border, and so "e were able to present Tarra·s, Libby and Buswell in the line-up. Our opponents proved an easy match, and "e won the game by a rather large score. \Vith our two most effective "submarines" now out of the game, our team, somewhat disheartened, went to Lt Crosse. The loss of llammer and D ickman was too much for us, and we were forced to accept defeat at the hands of the downriver men. The following week, Coach Tiffany brought his "Wabasha warriors" do>m to battle with us. This game was our easiest contest. It afforded e\·ery man who played a chance to be relieved by the substitutes. Tho some'' hat one-sided, it proved very interesting to the spectators. On the last day of the teachers' institute we again met La Crosse, but the result compelled us to acknowledge their superior skill. The final game of the season was played with St. \I ary's. With Dickman and Tarras out of the line-up, the fates were against us. The game ''as indeed 'Cr) interesting, and much excitement was manifested. It was a battle, from whistle to ''histle. During the first half, the lead sec-sawed back a nd forth, but gradual !~ in the second half our opponents forged ahead, and the game resulted in a defeat for our team. This closed the basketball season. Great credit must be giYen Coach Moore for the pt·rsistent clforts and good \1 ork of the team. \V e trust that next ~ea r will prove still more successfu l.

The k·adcrship of Captain DrcK~L\:\ and his abilit~ as a player was demonstrated at all times, and \H' realize that he is perfect!\ at home when it comes to playing the "old ganu·. ''

llis CO-\\orker, the other forward, \las a \Cry great a iel, for thru his speed and abi lity to !>hoot bash·b the team was often san·d from anxious moments. ln I l Al\1:\IER we realize that there is a great "lind." T-\HRAS, '' ho had so often starred the .\car before, proved to be just as efficient at handling the ball and holdin~ elm\ n the center position as he had been at previous t imes. Bcs\\ ILL and I maY ''orkt·d the guard positions to perfection. \\'henever a ma n broke thru our ofl'{·nse and started to \\ork the ball toward his basket, these two men broke it up. Their \\ork added ven matcriall~ to the s uccess of our team. I h "ILEY, RouB and 1\.HCLGEH ''ere also veterans at the game, a nd whene,·er a crucial monwnt came \H' found them cO'cctive \\Capons for use against our opponents. \\ \CHIIOLZ, D '\ rs and BAAB prm eel to be the most versatile players that ever set foot upon a basketball floor. \\"hen it came to playing a position, one was as easily filled b~ them as another. This power often helped Coach l\loore in selecting the line-up. NtSSJ:.!\ and L\t.FF'-Bl HGI:.R also were Yaluable assets to our team. Their abi lity to shoot and work the defense "a:s largely responsible for the small scores of our foes. 79



WEI10I1t1H ~ Football In 1916 T the football banquet in 1915, the prospects of the season for rgr6 loo med up be fo re us in a most promising manner. Tarras had been elected captain, and o f a ll th e squad only one man would leave. But somehow the •· jinx" was folio\\ ing us, and no sooner had school closed tha n the order came from Washington calling for the sen ices of our boys to defend their co untry. It ''as with reluctance indeed that we saw them leaYe, for we realized what a hole tlwir abst•nce would make in the squad. So when the first of September came a nd there ''as no si~n of their return, \\ c felt that '' e must go to work ,,-ith all possible effort Thru the unceasing efforts of Coaches .\loore and Kjelland "e were able to ma ke a creditable slum ing a~ainst our opponents. After practising nearh- a month, \H' were slated to meet L'l Crosse on the se' cntcenth of Ol·tobcr. This \\e did, and thru hard plaving we were able to offset somewha t the humiliating dt.fl•at of the previous \ear. In this game "Dutch" Rile.\ bro ke his hand, a nd so \\flS out of tht· ganw for tlw rt•st of till' st·ason. When the "histle ble" we found th a t \H' \H're cleft•att·cl bv the score of 18 to o. On the foll<ming Saturda.\ wt• met tlw \\ inona lligh School in a Yer.\ enthusiastic battle. Thru hard lighting we won this gamt• b.\ a score of 12 to 2. It was in this game that Dickman first began to prm t• his worth as a captain and a player, and issen as encl. The ne:'l:t Saturday found us playin~ \\'ab:tsha. Bourne was out of the game with injuries, so Dickman took his plact•. Flannt'Q' starred in this game, proving especially strong on the defensive. Tho some\\ hat ont·-sided, the game ''as filled "ith thrills . The score \\as 45 to 6 in our fa\'or. Much interest centert><l about the nt·xt game. Tho we had been defeated at Lt Crosse, \\e felt that its team \\as at a disadYantagl' pla\ing us on our home grounds. The firs t touchclo\\n \\as scort'<l b~ us; but bdim· the end of the game they had scored two t ouc hdo\\ns and kicked one goal. The game ended in their fayor, 13 to 6. Pillsbur.\ Academy \\as our next opponent. \\ c were defeated by the clecis i,·e score of 52 to o. The brilliant offensi,·c and defensi' e work of Dickman and Lumelsky we re the principle features of till' game. \\'c again pia) l'<i Wabasha on their fidel, in the midst of a snowstorm, defeat ing the m b.\ a score of 18 to 12. The ofTt•nsiH· work of Katowski, Flanner.\ and Baab, a nd the d efe nsive \\Ork of Lumdsk\, Robb, G:dlien and Wachholz, "ere the features which enabled us to wi n. Tlic final game of the season came on Thanksgi,ing day. It was st aged with o ur opponents of St. ~lar~-·s Colle~e. The teams were CYcnl~ matched, and the out co me seemed doubtful.

Women's Athletics I IE fall term of 1916 brought with it a new feature in the Physical Education department. Instead of the usual floor work in the gymnasium, a ll physical education was conducted out on the campus. Tennis, Yolley ball, basketball and baseball were the sports offered. The tennis courts at 1orey Ilall were scenes of keen excitement and interest as early as half past five in the morning, and as late as six in the afternoon. Games of volley ball, baseball and basketball played on the normal campus offered great enjoyment to the participants. The winter term provided many outlets for pleasure. At this time great enthusiasm for basketball was shown. The onnal this year put forth four splendid women's teams, the ormal, Tri-Sigma, Forum, and Faculty. Girls interested in winter sports enjoyed the two bobs made with the girls' s hare of the Association money. These bobs provided great fun for those who delighted in coasting and sleighriding. On March 3d a unique event took place in theY. W. C. A. swimming pool. Six girls interested in swim ming held a contest. Races were held for speed, diff"erent kinds of strokes, and number of strokes. Demonstrations of straight and running dives were given. The life-saving feats shown bv the girls will long be remembered by those who were present. ¡ With the return of spring came the return of outdoor sports. The same sports offered in the fall were taken up, but with more s kill, spirit, and fun. A track team which had started practice in the winter term mo,¡ed its apparatus out on the campus, and surprised the onlookers with its various stunts. Tennis will be renewed as soon as the ground permits and plans arc being made for a tennis tournament. The Woman's Branch of the Athletic Association has proved itself as successful in social gatherings as in athletics. On September 30th a B loomer Party made the old gymnasium a scene of merry-making. A game of bas ketball between the Seniors a nd Juniors gave the latter the honor of winning the first game of the season. On this occasion refreshments of doughnuts and coffee were served, a nd no person left the gymnasium before his desire for these had been full y satisfied. On Februa ry 10th an old English costume party was held in the new gymnasium. This year has decidedly proved that the Woman's Bra nch is a marked success. Under l\1iss Samson's s killful supervision students have been appointed leaders, and have organized and carried on the work of the Normal campus. With t his year's work as a foundation we hope that the Woma n's Branch will continue to hold a prominent place in school actiYities.



In ord er that the efforts of girls doing outside work in athletics might be recognized, it was decided to introduce a point system. Under this system any girl securing one hundred points for outside athletic work will receiYc a monogram of the Winona ormal School. This system is so arranged that no girl can earn a monogram by doing one kind of athletic work, but will ha\'C to participate in two or more forms. By the use of this system, it is hoped that more gi rls will be induced to join teams, take hikes, swim, skate, and so forth.

""A Man To a Woman" RS. CliORPE I G'S latest play, "A ~Ian to a Woman," was presented at the Opera I louse on December 18th by the Winona Players. It was enthusiastically received by a capacity house. The plot itself is intensely interesting from start to finish, dealing with the injustice of the double standard. l\Ionica Kerska, a young Polish factory girl, is determined to have re,·enge upon a young man who had betrayed and deserted her some years before. In her hunt for him she comes to the home of Dr. ~lartin, a well kno" n physician, where she meets Dr. Thorne, a famous nerve specialist. Dr. Thorne i!> also a scu lptor of ability and sometimes studies his patients by modeling them . By his rare sympath.) he gains 1\lonica's confidence and learns her story. l ie desires to help her, and in pursuit of this plan, prevails upon her to be the model for a head made in clay. At Dr. Martin's home also is Mrs. Winchester, a patient, ill of a nervous breakdown due to worry over a son and grandson. The son years before was caught in a common brawl, sent to prison, and reported to be dead. The grandson, Norman Ellis, in whom ~Irs. Winchester's hopes now centered, chafed under her r<'straint, and went away, saying with true boyish carelessness that he would never return. 1le has now been gone two years, and Dr. ~lartin has just summoned him because of the serious illness of his grandmother. orman appears and his presence and love do much toward soothing the overwrought nerves of Mrs. Winchester. Especially is she pleased that Norman and Carfine, Dr. ;\lartin's daughter, find in each other former playmates, and soon become sweethearts. She believes that this love will make Norman safe. When Monica learns that Norman Ellis is the man she is looking for, she determi nes to expose him. Dr. Thorne, who, unknown to 1\ lonica, has fallen in love with her, tries to change her purpose. He tries to arouse her better nature and to soften her intensely revengeful feelings, but she, a lthough she is deeply in love with Dr. Thorne, persists in her purpose. Just when all seems lost, Dr. Thorne accidentally unveils a second head upon which he has been working, but which has hitherto been concealed from Monica. In this head she recognizes herself; but it is herself with all the bitterness and revenge left out-herself spi ritualized. She is overcome by the vision and its prophesy, and gives up her purpose of exposing orman. She hestiatcs, however, to marry Dr. Thorne, for she feels the cruelty of the world's judgment of her offense. It is then that Dr. Thorne, revealed as the lost son of Mrs. Winchester, and himself scarred by the fight to retrieve past mistakes, speaks the message of equality before the moral law- the heart to heart message of" a man to a woman"; and they take each other for wbat tbe.t· are, and for wbat tbe.t· ma.r yet be to tbemselres and to tbe world. If the play had been judged by the one night's performance only, it would still have been an O\ en' helming success. But in addition it aroused not only the appreciation but the thought of the audience, and for weeks afterward groups of people gathered to discuss the probability and justice of the play. 1n this awakening of interest the play proves itself to be more than a night's diversion, but a field for thought and perhaps good. The a udience felt a si ncere love a nd sympathy for each character in the play. They arc a ll human and true to life. The plaJ shows that good can overcome evi l: in the case of Dr. Thorne, his life is changed by the opportune kindness of Dr. lartin; in the case of :\Ionica, she is transformed by the magnetic innuence of Dr. Thorne from a girl with revenge and hatred in her heart to one forgi ving and self-sacrillcing. A good deal of the success of the whole play shou ld be gi\·en to i\liss Florence Youmans, as :'\lonica. She showed remarkable depth as well as intense sincerity in her dramatic interpretation of the part. The audience was gripped from her first appea rance, and held in sympathy thruout by her stron~ and complex character. Everyone felt towards her what Carline once said: "I don't p1t: you, I loYe .\·ou," and her Yery high art was shown



WEI10I1tiH ,, /

in her logical yet amazing transition from a ruined, revengeful, smouldering lire of a girl to one of fine and noble character. The dominating character of the play, Dr. Thorne, was portra) eel most admirably by Leo R) an . He performed the di fficult task of not onl.' seeming but really being a man of vast c:-.pcriencc, whose life, a lmost wrecked, had been sa,·ed by a determined will and hard work. l\ l r. Ryan procured a quiet firmness and winn ing gentleness, combined with a magnetism, that drew ever~one to him in admiration. And yet so human and real was he that he won the immediate sympath~· of his audience. :\! iss :\ l ar~ Slifer was wonderful in her interpretation of :\1rs. Winchester. I n her C\ Cr.\ gesture and expression she was the state!.' · grandmother, covering her nervousness b~ a pathetic attempt to appear tranquil. Alwa~·s refined and courteous, she ''as a lovable character. This very emotional part l\ l iss Slifer performed with the greatest art and ability. Frances Prentiss as Carline was the bright spot in the play. Iter buoyanc.v and joy in life made a striking contrast to the suffering of her family and friends. Even when she began to realize that things were amiss, she retained her firm belief in the good in every one. I Jcr acting was "the art that conceals a rt." So natu raJ was it that one heard people say, "~ I iss Prentiss wasn't acting; she was Carline." From her first entrance, when she came skipping and singing onto the stage, to the intense scene where she heard l\lonica's tragic stor.' in her entire part she was delightful. Earl Jewell, as forman Ellis, ''as a pleasing, charming character, more to be pitied for his mis-st<.·p than hated. The unique situation of holding the audience in complete sympath.\ '' ith one who '' ould usually h:n c been considered a villain was extremely well handled b, :\ tr. Jewell. 1\tr. \Vebster Kopp took the part of Dr. :\ Iartin, the experienced, kindly physician, with great case. li e won at once the admiration and respect of the auclicncc, and possessed the assurance and precision that a doctor of such note should have. The cast arc hoping that the "\\'inona Pla.vers" is a permanent organization, and that i-. 1rs. Chorpenning will soon lul\ c other plays which the! ''ill enjoy working out and giving to the public.

OFFICER-Yes, yes, let us go back to our props01t10n. \Veil, you understand, of course, that you have been guilty of conspirac.l· and treason and have accordingly been condemned to death. PRISONER-\Vhere no loyalty is due, there can be no treason. OFFICER (hesitating) -I rcland is part of the empire. Her loyalty is due to England. PRISO ER- Bclgium is part of the German Empire. Her loyalty is clue to Germany. OI·FICER-Why, man, that is no comparison ! Belg ium has just been invaded, trampled on. lreland- \Vhy, Ireland has been a part of the empire for hundreds of .'cars. PRISO!'ER- Tho a man be born in slavcrv, he is none the less a slave. OFFICER- I don't see whv you say that.· The Irish a re treated much better than the Belgiums. I'm afraid your l~u~guagc ' is more rhetorical than judicious. What the Irish lun c in common with slaves is more than I can sec. PRISONER- Anyone unwillingly deprived of his rights is a slave. The Irish arc political s la,·es. The\ cannot be traitors to their master. OFFICER-:_! must confess I don't follow you. Your people have a voice in the Imperial parliament and the~ have our promise of home rule. PRISOt\ER- The voice we ha\e in your parliament is too weak to be heard. The home rule you promise us is no more than a bright colored toy to quiet us with. KAVANAGH (cxplosivcl.v ) -And it's still a promise! ~lOTIIER An English promise. OFFICER (with dignity)- An English promise is not to be doubted. KA\'Al':AGH (vigorously) -And wh) not? To what unspotted record can ~·ou point? lf your government is sincere in her promises why docs she withhold home rule? OFFICER (calm ly)- You a re overhasty, my dear Kavanagh. As a member of parliament ,you must realize that parliamentary methods are necessarily slo" . KAVANAGH (turns away a nd speaks with irony)- I've noticed that- when prejudice is in the majority. OFFICER (with forced calm ) -Ah-h- But- You see there are two sides to the home rule question. KA\'Af'.'AGH (s harply) -Correct, s ir! A right and a wrong! OFFICER (with insistent calmness of attitude) l am afraid you a re growing emotional. There is Ulster to be considered, you know. KA\'AKAGH (mocking officer'~ manner and tone, then reverting to former forcc) - If ·' ou were to consult your reason instead of .rour emotions there would be no Ulster problem. You \\ould not be upholding the bigotr~ of a sc,·entccn per cent minority simp!~ because the.\ happen to be of your O\\ n race. OFFICER (angrily)-And you, who protest so strongly against coercion, wis h to coerce Ulster! Ulster has its rights. KAVA!'AGH- The rights it claims are stolen ones. Those who claim them live on land our fathers were robbed of. You uphold them in their stolen heritage, because they ar~ of ,\ ou r blood and not of ours. They arc the hyphenates of Ireland. 0FFICEH (" ith exasperation) -Wh.v, man, to hear you talk one \\'Ould think you we1 ' a rebel! PH!SO:-.IEH (clearly, calmly) Every Irishman is a rebel at heart. OFFICER (regaining former composure)- Wcll, sir, l give your countr.\ men more credit than that. The great majority of them arc like Kavanagh, here-a little impatient, perhaps, but on the whole, sensible, Ia\' -abiding citizens. K ,\\'AKAGH (to prisoner, with cons iderable intention ) -Our countrymen arc like meno". Don't forget that . .\lOTHEH-You must not. PRISO:\ER (intently) -I' II not forget.

Still, \\e are ready to O\'erlook this mistake. · KA v M>~AGI I (sarcasticall.) )-Ho" can you possibl.' do that! OFFICER- It is a cliflicult thing to o,·crlook. And our proposition is aver:-. unmilitar~ one. (To the prisoner) Instead of punishing you as a traitor \\Coffer .)OU the dignity of signing a military surrender that will grant you liberty. PRISONER- You arc \'Cry generous to offer the dignit.\ of surrender. 0FFICEH- You see, \\C can't simply free you. People must not think treason can go unpunished. It is necessary to do something to cloak what othem isc might be called senti mental weakness. KA \ A!\'AGH- How· curious! 0FFICEH (taking a document from the table) llcre is the cloak- already preparcd\\C kne\\' \\C \\'Ould not have the time to prepare it here.

OFFICER Your associates were, I feel, pleased with this proposal. They smiled and said you would give their ans\\er. Those men ha'e great conlidencc in you. PR ISONER- Tbe conftdcnce of the brotherhood is a sacred trust. OFFICER It is a great trust that leads men to place in your hands their lives. ~ lOTJIER-l\lorc than their lives. hA \ A1\AGH- I'm beginning to ha,·c confidence in him myself. ~ I ALREE1\- i'm afraid. 0FFICEH This surrender carries "ith it onh t" o conditions. First, vou must order all members of your organization to give up thci~ arms, at once. It "ill be necessary that ~ ou give us the names of the members of the organization in order that we may be sure that this condition is obeyed.

EACIIER! Teacher! Lea'e I hold Teacher's bag." " 1 o, me!" " o, leave I." " Leave I." "Leave I ha, e Teacher's bic,·cle." It ''as a ne'' 'oicc that spoke, and Teacher looked clown into a little old face, ,·er.\ grim:-·, surmounted b\ a felt hat rim. The body belonging to the face was clad in a pair of trousers mu ch too long, a large vest, and a la rge coat, altho t he da.\ \\·as ''arm. Thru the coat and vest sh<l\\ eel the respectable remains of a blue shirt. The trousers were held on a nd up-very much up- by one suspender; but two suspenders were dudish, and not tolerated in the Fourth Ward . "Can yo u ride?" asked T eacher. "Yes, Teacher," responded the boy, ,, ith an unceremonious grab at the handlebars. As he rode off, standing barefooted on the pedals, and wobbling a larming!.\· from side to side, Teacher as ked, "Isn't that a new boy?" The twent.\ -odd little girls and boys impeding her progress began a storm of information, out of ''hich teacher gathered that the new boy had been in the Reformator.\ and was awful bad and had just come home and boasted the name of Schpydoody. Teacher, who had gotten used to t he long, hard names in her three weeks of playground direction, still had room for astonishment. " Is t hat his real name?" she demanded. The crowd was doubtfully silent for a moment, and the question was passed on to the bord ers of the group. " aw, T eacher," ans,, ercd Ila-l la, an impish .\Out h whose true name ''as irretrievabl~ lost, "his real name ain't that. They calls him \ 1ike, but we names him Schp.\ doody for short"; and he tu rn ed a handspri ng of glee at his O\\n funnyment. "Why was he sent to the Reformatory?" asked Teacher, a vague fear stirring within her. "A", nothin'," clamored the boys ind ignant!~. "Jle was king of the gang, and all the teac hers and cops was down on him. I lis ma is a" ful mean to him, too. She beats him fierce." ot hing more was said abo ut Schpydoocly, because they were entering the park, where a headlong race to the s'' ings ended in a spirited fight for their possession. On the south side the young man supen isor was pla.\ ing vigorous baseball \\ ith the older bo.\ s. Nearer, the child ren " ·ere flying down the slides, head, feet, or back fi rst. The sun \\US heatinfZ; t he copper unmercifull.\, and Teacher wondered at their endurance. The sand box "as full of fat babies,'' ith little clothi ng e~cept dirt. The s"·ings ''ere good gracious! Teacher ran to the group of boys and pulled two little, sweari ng humans apart. The~ "rigglcd, p;lan~cl, and finally quieted. Schp,vdood.\ had made them flp;ht, they said. After a long talk "ith Schpydoody, T eacher felt t roubled. Schpydoody promised everything freely, a nd, knowi np; the rules of the grou nds, promptl.v began to break them all. I lc smoked, and was forbidden t he swings. At the usual kindly, formal lecture about no smoking on the pla.vgrounds, with the add itional caution against swearing, gambling, and impoliteness, he mack himself heard in the most astonis hingly bad combination of S\\Cari ng and Polish that Teacher had so far been pri Yileged to hear. l ie lost e\"ery pla\ ground right b.\ playing cards and stealing. l ie shouted P olish insults until the little girls came in indignant tears and said, "Teacher! he blabs on my back things 1 got a scare to tell Teacher." The cop caught him turning on playground "waten' ords" \\"ith a stone, and t hreatened Reformatory. I lc lied, a nd his O\\ n ganp; chased him home. This seemed to bewilder him a good deal, so he only came to the playgrounds when others "ere gone. lie p ut sand-bu rs ("pickles," they called them ) in the sand bo:-., and "T

"Schpyduud.1 , I'm p;oing to tell ~our motht•r to keep~ ou at home." Then she stopped in \\otl<kr. For Schpydoody wa!:l abjectly tt•rrified. "Teacher, I stay a wad" he cried, and jerked from her grasp to speed home. For t\1 o claY!> peace reigned supreme. On the l'\ cning of the third a woman was seen coming across the playp:rounds. B1 her side slunk Schpydoocly, propelled un willingl.) b_y the lt.ft l'ar. As usual, half the children on the playground gathered arou nd T eac her, a nd spoikd the littk· dance she was directi ng. "Tt•adwr! Tt•acher! Jlerc's Schp,\'Cioody's ma!" "She's a11ful fierce, teacher," \oluntlwcd ldka, Ha-lla, Antin\ and Pig, in :l\\cd voices. "Go on playing.

Alumni Letters EAR- - -: 1 arri,·ed ~·esterday evening, after having been "entrained" si nee 8:20 a. m. on the \\'innipcg Flier. This train only thinks it's a Flier because it's able to leave the track so often. I inquired for the best hotel and was told by ;\lr. Overalls that "the" hotel was "over yonder." \\'ell, 1 found it. The little rascal that built it hid it behind a tree, but he cou ldn't fool me. The minute 1 saw the sign I knew it was a hotel. I went in and signed my life away and then decided to look the town over, so l ''ent out on the porch and sat down. Excuse me one or two minutes. The ever ''clcome sound of the dinner bell forces itself upon my attention. . . . . . . . . . indicates time out for dinner. othing hurts me. Really, tho, 1 did enjoy the dinner. I Jere I am back again. One sits at a table with a doctor, a peasant, a banker's" ife, etc., and discourses brightly and fervidly upon the weather. The worthy native on my right was following the timehonored custom of his forebears by pouring his coffee into the saucer, daintily cooling it with a few heart.\' zephyrs, and then nonchalantly drawing it into a bewhiskered aperture by the vacuum cleaner method. I must admit that the entertainment soon palled . After that when I saw that thirst was about to claim my worthy friend's attention, [ would gently d rop m.v knife on the plate by way of lending tone color to the coffee symphony. What I ''ill do for excitement (besides teaching school) for the next nine months I know not. They boast of a mo,·ie ever~ Saturda,\ night, and they also haq~ a pool table in town . Ilo,,cvcr, it has been in such constant usc that the surface resembles that of a bed. The numbers have long since been knocked off of the balls, and the village pool sharks now identify each ball by its shape. School opens next ~ l onday. I will let you know- - - -


EAR- -: Talk about provincialism! The wife of Mr. i\ 1an took us riding in a six-c.\ Iinder Winton-Six and naively told us that gasoline was twenty-two cents a gallon, oil so much, chauffeur cost two dollars ada,·, machine cost three thousand. We realized then "hat we were accepting. · A grade teacher certainly earns her salary. After supper I will learn my jcrgraphy and correct t" cnt.'·-fi,·e test papers.

Who is this little dumpling who comes briskly down the aisle With an air of" I don't know you," but an unexpected smile, Who teaches mathematics, but loves grand opera more, Who talks to us of music, a nd tells us of Tagore, Whose well known absentm indedness is her most striking trait? Of course you' ve guessed it is Miss Sprag ue, who's better known as Kate.

Who is this ha ndsome woman who now heaves into sight, Who tells us all just how to sing, a nd use our voices right, Who scolds us hard when she is cross, but never fa ils to add That we're the best in all the world, and only seldom bad; Who plays the hymns in chapel in a very spright ly way Which makes us feel quite cheerful the remainder of the day, Who has discovered ma ny st a rs, among them D aphne D.? Why, 'tis none other than 1'v1iss Smith, t he famous Carrie V.


HO is the dimpled lady Of educated mind? The state's new Course of Study Is by what geni us signed? • Who went to California To get a bit of rest?

O\V that war has come, American women and girls ever~ where arc asking the question, "\Vhat can I do?" "1 don't want to stay at home and just sew. I want to go to the front," " I want to have a ?;Un and s hoot the Boches," are some of the remarks that have been heard at the 1onnal School. But Uncle Sam is not read\· to accept women as soldiers, so we are finding other, perhaps just as necessary, things to do. We've been hearing much about food s hortage, and the importance of doin g everything possible to prevent a duplication of the European food situation in this countr.\. As a result there is much interest in gardening. An early morning stroller ,,·ould find numbers of women students a nd faculty members digging and planting and hoeing. Others are organizing into groups to sew under the supervision of the local Red Cross Societ.v. They're planning to make pajamas, bed socks, and many accessories for ill\·a lids. About three hundred are stu dyi ng First Aid ,,·ith the expectation of receiving Red Cross certificates. All of this is only a start toward real war ,,·ork, but it's a long step in the right direction. This is not a time for madly rushing off to do something spectacula r, but rather for taking stock to find out what each one of us can do when the time comes that she may be needed. \Ve ought to get ready. \Ve need enthusiasm and loyalt.) of the kind that can be tran slated into action when the time for action comes. \\'hat can you do?

Where Is Thy Sting?

(But our life is a poem: \\e die, and our \\ars must fail ), Or is it a broken thing that is Oung from sight As the far-Oung colors of sunset herald the ni!!:htThat '' e toss to the sk\ to take, to the "ild "inds' flight? And our life is a poem: \\C die, and our dreams must fail.

Lawn Party at Morey Hall

This occasion was a "get acquainted" party, and to further the purpose of the part~, ''e each pinned on our waists a slip of paper'' ith our identifications \Hitten on it. After we had smiled at and "how do vou doed" even¡one, we, at least the most of us, were attracted to the tennis courts, where the ,,odd's clut~pion tenn is players were engaged in a practice game which was very amusing.

And when the rulers were come unto the Temple, Gu~, the son of \l;n.

Then after everybody had eaten e\'erything in sight, "c settled back for a sleep. l\lr . .\laxwcll arose to speak.

Then "c passed a hat around and everybody put in a piece of paper with Art Wachholz's name on it. This ''as to signify that the son of l\lr. and l\ 1rs. \Vachholz was our next year's captain.

A Hard Times Party E Juniors had now passed the wreathed post of the first lap in the race course in our pursuance of kno,dedge (G. E. l\ l.) and ''e knc'' much more than when we first dug up our dollar fifty- we arc told. But time wore on and our ncn路es wore out, and we decided to gi,路e a liard Times part,\ . We certainly had a hard time. Our C\'ening of jo~ ful jollity and innocent fun ,,路as marred by the Senior plague. We, of course, had to use a little physical per suasion to rid ourselves of the brutes, but nevertheless it was done_. We Juniors loudly proclaimed that t hey had about as much sense of humor as a porcuprne. (For further information sec Page 12-.)


The Old English Party H E "Oleic Tyme English Party" gi\'en by the Physical Education department was a huge s uccess. It was clever and unique, but above all it was lots of fun. The posters directed us to come as people of ye oleic English tymes, to dance the favorite Eng! ish country dances, and we prepared our costumes with the utmost care and strateg_\路. Lords and ladies, morris men, bar-maids, fools and jesters were all there in holida.' garb, a nd the gymnasi um presented a picturcsq ue scene. Between dances the Ru fty-tu fty club ga\'e several exhibitions, "Jlunsdon House" a nd a sword dance drawing the loudest applause. Se\'cral of the morris groups also entertained us with " Beansetting," and other morris dances. Then there ''ere refreshments ! Cider, served from the traditional cider keg, and Banbury ta rts. We topped ofT the evening with a Grand March, and gave Miss Samson a lusty cheer, to express our appreciation of the charming evening which she had planned for us.


Hard Times ilE Juniors w.cre free from tradition, ~·ou sec, When they planned their party ga); They surely felt smarty at having a party At which they alone could play. We Seniors were sad, and then strangely glad ; We felt that they'd soon meet their doom! We planned to attend, and our sweet graces lend To make their gay fcsti,·al boom.


ow we had arranged b~· "ords c-.changcd Early the day before As the clock struck nine to st and in line Outside the g~ mnasium door. Thru some words let fall bv three Juniors small As they passed thru the ·park b~ night, \\'e feared that a sentn· would bar our cntn, And possibly make t;s take flight. • This threat didn't daunt us; "e feared they would taunt us \Vith, "You were too scared to appear." And so we all planned to go in a bandBut we didn't let anyone hear! At just six o'clock we were in the block Slyly seeking an unlocked door; Past janitors sleepy, thru tunnels creep~, We stole to the upper fl oor. There in the gloom of the chemistr~ room We waited, all in a flurry, Till some Jun iors came, an·d, covered "ith shame, They hustled us out in a hurry. B~ the janitor's aid our exits \\ere made, Then each Junior returned to his friend, But tho we "ere scattered and some of us battered, \\'e ventured our "l iard Times" to mend. At a moment decided, we softly glided Into the beautiful hall; We burst into song, but not for long, For the rude Juniors stopped it all. Into the night went the bloody fight, Bloodier far than intended! High snowbanks were near a nd we buried some here, Ere our rapid way homeward we wended. Without any fear we gave a last cheer, And they answered by calling us pests, But we didn't care, for they'd gotten their share or fights and of snow and the rest. L' Er-:vo1 ow don't lay to us all this fighting and fuss, For the Juniors \\ere \'Cry neglectful; They should have knelt do" n '' ith their e~·cs on the ground, And treated their betters "respcctfu I."

Song and Light Festival N the evening of February 17th, the Song and Light Festival was given by the music department. The festival was given in t he spacious new gymnasium, "·hich had appropriately been deco rated with candles and branches of evergreen. The program consisted of Songs of t he People and Songs of the lasters.

Februar.'· 2-tth, the Dramatic Association presented t hree pbys. "l\liSS ClVlLIZATIO:"i"

I n this play by Richard I larding D avis, we are given an exciting plot, an unusual situation, and incidentally a discussion of the merits of burglary as a profession. The debate is carried on at midn ight by three bu rgla rs and the daughter of the house. Civilization wins, by the com·incing argument of a squad of policemen and a few revolvers. T he actors brought out the atmosphere of the play convincingly. The burglars "ith their masks, whispers, and attitude of armed attention, the stern and business-like officers, and the daring of the kimonoed heroine, combinoed to produce an e!Tect of thrilling realism. "THE

I lot.m


T his is a morality play by the I rish dramatist and poet, Yeats. It is profoundly characteristic of I rish sentiment. I ts hero is a sceptic, who has taught the people to disbelieve in religion . An angel appears as he is about to teach his school, and not on ly convinces him of the truth of the things he has den ied, but infor ms him that he will die when the sand has run once through the hour glass, and that his soul will go to the place he didn't believe in if he bas not meanwhile found someone with faith. T he Wise ]'dan calls in his friends and students, but they all insist that the.\· no longer hold their former faith. l-I e is about to yield to despair when Taigue the Fool enters, having finished his work of setting free the captive angels caught in rabbit nets. Taigue saves the Wise l\lan's soul b.v declaring what an angel had once told him in the mountain: "Remember the three fires: the fire that punishes, the fire that purifies, and the fire wherein the soul rejoices forever." "Joi KT Ow:-~ERS I ' SPAI:"i" Without doubt this was the star performance. We had never hoped to get even for all t he lesson plans, life-like sketches, themes and oratorical stunts that we bad had thrust upon us, so adequately and appropriately as to install all these teachers in an old ladies' home. For half an hour we gloated over them deliciously. .\I iss I Iarrict Campbell, as di rector of said home, was in her proper clement! J\liss Guernse.'·· l\ l rs. Chorpcnning, and M iss Slifer, as inmates thereof, were in theirs. Their true dispositions showed up most damningl.,·-ncver again can the.'· fool us b_v their benign class room manners ! I n view of these facts, it is not surprising t hat the acting was unusually good . \Ve who had had special conferences a lmost felt sorry for i\ l rs. Chorpcnning when l\ fiss Campbell gaYe her a well deserved lecture. We felt that J\liss Guernsey was receiving poetic justice in being deprived of her room. \\'e were delighted to see i\lrs. Chorpenning ,,·eep, remembering our own tears. And we only regretted that i\ Iiss Slifer got ofr so easily!

Commencement Address Which We Will Hear Yov:-;c FRri:.Nos:- As I look into ~our upturned faces, gfo,,ing with health and joy, it is borne in upon me what great promise is here. You arc about to embark upon your various careers. That is to say, set sai l upon the sea of life. To make my r.gure plainer, you are no\\ on the gangplank leading from } our careless school clays to the responsibilities of life. (Applausl'.) . T he duty of saying a few guiding words to you quite, I say with all si ncerity, quite o\·erwhclms me. (Low bo'' on part of speaker. Audience ''ill applaud.) Upon this occasion of occasions, "hen the flags are fly ing, and the eagle is screaming (prolonged applause) it would be well to review the past and take from it increased hope and faith for a fair tomorro\1. (This \\ill continue for some time, punctuated b\ mob emotion, until the speaker "ill be seated.) •

What d id they do when dusk had fallen , bedtime come? Cou ld the Piper play lullabies on his \\Onderful pipe as soft!~¡, as tenderly, as a mother sings them? And didn't ~'Ou wish and "ish that the Piper would forgive t he people of Hamelin To" nand give t heir children back? A charming interpretation of "what happened afterward" was \\ ritten by J osephine Preston Peabody, winning the Shakespearian Oxford prize. This pia.\', "The Piper," will be presented by the Senior class. With i\l iss Slifer as a t rai ned and enthusiastic coach, there is every promise that it "ill be one of the most successful that t he school has ever presented. If desirable, two per formances will be given, and the proceeds, b) a unanimous vote of the class, "ill be given to the Reel Cross. Since the l'u nels arc devoted to this purpose, no one taking part in the pla.v or bu.' ing a ticket to sec it can feel that he is "asting time or money that might be used more advisably .
