History of the Class of 1q18 GRACE ARMSTRO"\G

N

OW it came to pass that in the Land of Uncle Sam in the State of Minnesota. there \\as built a Temple of Learning. kno\\n in the statutes of the State as the Winona State 0-:ormal SchooL And in this temple there ruled many good Presidents doing that which \\as right in the sight of the State. declining neither to the right hand nor to the left And it came to pass that during the reign of Guy. in the year of our Lord 1916. there journeyed unto the Temple of Learning a host of youths and maidens out of the Land of Uncle Sam, seek ing after knowledge. AnJ on the fifth day of September they appeared before Guy who spake unto them these words: I have read thy records and thy credentials which tho1.. hast sent before thee. And if thou wilt walk before me as thy predecessors have done. in uprightness, doing only those things "hich are becoming t0 a Teacher. then the State wilt grant unto thee that sacred document calk... a Diploma. And the goodly company of youths and maidens bo,,¡ed meekly before Guy and promised to do a ll that \\hich he had spoken unto them. l\'0\\, the host of Juniors, for so they ''ere called in the Temple. met together and chose four of their hand for leaders. And these chosen four ''ere: Harold Riley. President. ;"\,lildred Carhart. Vice-President. Rae Whtttom. Secretary. and Harold Olson. Treasurer. And when all this was finished. the Juniors went about doing those things which were asked of them. And they were strong and courageous and were not dismayed by Arithmetic. or Psychology. or the Faculty Reception. And they did battle with an enemy host and were victorious and prospered. For it came to pass that there ''as need of rest in the Temple and the juniors took counsel together saying: Let us give unto ourselves and our brothers who have returned from the Border. a party. Let us clothe ourselves in tarn raiment and go unto the Gymnasium with gaiety and laughtc; Let us eat hardtack and drink "ater that we may not be waste£ ul of the fat of the land . . ow there was in the Temple an enemy host. called the Sen iors. a horde of Seekers after Know ledge, who, having sought and found not. were yet conceited in their Lack of Finding. And these met together saying: Behold. we'' ho are the Pillars of the Temple have not been invited to partake of the feast of the Juniors. Let us therefore repai r in secret to the storehouse of these Ignatz and remove therefrom t he manna on which the\ \\ould feast. H owbeit. the Juniors were watchful upon t he night of the party anJ. while the enemy were munching hardtack. bore down upon them and the~ ned in terror. And the juniors pursued and discomfited them and thetr boasting was turned into wailing and gnashing of teeth. And thus it came about t hat the Seniors humbled themselves and looked up to the Juniors '' ith reverence and obedience.


'\o'' it came to pass that there ''ere pirates upon the seas who did all that was fearful in the sight of mankind . And Uncle Sam called upon the \outh of the land to destroy them that the world might be safe. And the Call ''as heard in the Temple of Learning and many young men went out to sla~ the monsters. 1\nd so the Juniors lost many of their valiant number. And those \\ho \\ere left \\Orked on dauntlessly that the End of the Term might not find them "anting. :\nd m the month of June they returned unto their homes to rest from their labors. But in the Fall. those who were strong and bold returned unto the Temple (for some had fallen by the wa ys ide resting in E's) . And they were now called Seniors for those who had been Seniors had departed from the Temple forever. '\o\\ the Seniors took counsel together and once more elected four of their number for leaders. And these are they that were chosen: Harold Olson. President. Dora Blackmore. Vice-President. Cora Palm. Secretary. and Letha Davidson. Treasurer. ,\nd it came to pass that Harold . being wise '' ith much wisdom departed from the Temple unto the College of Carleton. And there \\¡as mournmg in the Temple of Learning. '\ow this year "as a year of war and famine in the world and there "as much "ork to be done. But the Seniors did all that "hich "as asked of them. and more . They did eat war bread. and buy Liberty Bonds and make Red Cross bandages and compresses. And they mu rmured not when loud calls were heard for dimes. quarters. and dollars. i\1oreover. the Seniors counseled together saying: Let each of us buy a \\'ar Savings Stamp. And let us give these Stamps to the Temple of Learnmg that we may put our name here forever. And so it was done. And lo. the Seniors did write a book and did put therein many good thmgs And the name of the book was Wenonah . \nd those" ho ''ere actors did act a play called Green Stockings. o\nd the fame of the Seniors spread abroad thruout the land . And man~ Superintendents did call upon them to teach and did offer them silver and coppers . . \nd the Seniors '' ent out of the Temple doing good in the sight of man . .\nd the Superintendents spake unto them saying: It ''as a true report \\hrch I heard of thy acts and thy wisdom. Howbeit. I believed not all that I heard until I had seen it and behold. the one half of the greatness of th~ \\tsdom was not told me. for thou exceedest the fame that I heard! And thus are recorded many of the acts of the Seniors. The rest of them. hehold. are written in the Records of the f-aculty and in the Char<~cterization Blanks 1 Selah!


History of the Junior Class AL\' JRA RJS!>ER

T ''as on a bright September morning exact!~ nine months ago that tht juniors surged into that vast assembly hall like a never ending wave all kinds of juniors. "great ones. srrall ones. lean ones. brawny ones. grave old plodders. gay young friskers... The faculty looked and wondered. and t he Seniors looked and hnew. \\'e were a sorry looking group upon our arrival: for we were of that meek. quiet. modest type. agreeing with all anJ disagreei ng \\'ith none. What terrihle predicaments our shyness did get us into 1 \V e lost ourselves in the myriads of doorways and hall\\ ays. failed to meet our arpointments. and became hopelessly mixed up in the usc of our English grammar. I will tell you in secret. my dear readers. that I am almost certain that \-Irs. Chorpenning got the idea that "e \\路ere so horribly stranded in our English because of those first agonizing. terrorizing moments' The facult~. after carefully going O\'er us and putting us thru the mtll. dt~cO\ered. much to our Jistress. our fatal characteristics. :\'o doubt recalling similar, or perhaps even more tragic beginnings. they took us unucr their protecting wings and dealt with us a little leniently. Do not misunderstand me: not in the class rooms were "e dealt \\'ith more lenient!~. for there "ith the rest " 路ere we required to extract the tenth root of numbers clear into the quindecilions. or \\Ork out the problem of "I low to Usc Your Mind," or write an essay on " !Iuman Behavior... In the hours of the da~ that were left. ho,,路c,路er. they \\'ere kind and thoughtfu l of us. Understanding OUr Situaticn. a get-acquainted J1art~ \\aS planned: yet, fearing that \\e might come to harm. "big sisters" \\ere rrovided to take care of us. The;. did care for us in a praise\\orthy manner. but their positions were ro he but temporary ones. for we soon grew tired of letting our sister class occur~ a ll the srace in the lime light and \\alk off\\ ith all the honors: \\C, tOO,

I


\\anted our share. We cautiously began to \\'atch our hig siste•s OLI tof the corner of our e~c (don't think for a minute that \\e let them know. They Jon t knO\\ it to this \Cry day)-in order to see \\hat the) \\Cre doing to make them such a prominent and much esteemed group. \\'hat do you suppose we sa'' ' \\'hy. the Seniors had organized themsch cs and had eltctcd class officers. You know. a hint to the '' ise IS sufficient. (don't smile. hccause we real I~ ''ere gaining in \\'isdom day hy da~) so'' e got busy: \\C gathered together and did some organizing too. \\'e elected :V1r. Stevens for pres1dent. Miss Christensen for vice-president. :VIiss Cassid) for se:retary . .\ lr. Baker for treasurer. and Miss Bloom for sergeant-at-arms. These olhcers formed the mai nstay and backbone of the class: it ''as they who possessed the fairy charm and who tra nsformed us from timid little indi\IJuals into one solid compact whole. Only this small amount of organizrng hrought about a most ''onderful change' Ever since that cia~· we. the .lumors and Seniors. ha\e been twin sisters rather than a younger and a"'' okit:r sister: we ha\ e gone thru the school year hand in hand. sharing '' ith one another both our sorrows and our joys. Our Junior year ''as by no means all grind and work. The worthy fa~..ult\ did not forget that "all work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy ... Consequently. the) set aside many an e\·ening in '' hich all the trials. discouragements. and disappointments of school routine were to he put aside and the King of Jo) to rule supreme instead. The faculty. Country Life Club. Senior Class. and Kindergarten Club did much to make our school \Car a most delightful one and we sincerely appreciate their efforts. In orlkr to show our appreciation and. also. to shO\\ our feeling of gooJ fellow~hq1. the Junior class in turn gave a May Party on the Morey llall grounds. l'hc \ lay Party was a prcuy affair and marked the close of the social sca'on of the school. But parties \\'ere not the on ly source of rest to t he hook\\ Cary Junior. Oh no! .\1r. H olzinger and .\ lr. Scarborough. in t heir u~ual thoughtful way. discovered another source that of hiking. Trips \\l:rc made '' ith .\-1r. I lolzinger to Castle Rock and '' ith Mr. Scarborough to Inspiration Point. (Undoubtedly \1r. Scarborough thought we Juniors needed occas1onal inspiration). \Vhat Junior d1d not enjoy those hikes! They not only released us from the school-room fatigue. but brought us mto close contact '' ith the great outside world. ~~~ readers ''ill knO\\ from obsenation that t\\ ins do not ah' a)S keep equal pace one '' ith another. or. if they do. one '' 111 at le:nt try to o:.~tru1 the other. Th1s \\'aS the case with the ~ormal School t ''ins. The Juniors ha\ rng once enjoyed the pleasant sensation of rising from a plane below thc1r sister to a plane equal with her. now tried to reach a plane somewhat c~bO\e her. The effort was made in the field of athletics and \\e found that 1t ''as not in vain: for the football squad ''as made up chicOy of Juniors. l'hc Seniors refused to admit that we had surpassed them and claimed that · 4Ualrty not quantity" counted in t his case as in any other: hut we Juniors knt:\\ that both quality and qua n tity was our contribution to the football 'quad. However. as I have said before, Juniors and Seniors went hand in hJnd and the splendid record of our squad in the line of athletics was the result of the splend1d contributions of talent from hoth classes.


When my reader holds th is in ha nd. the class of which he reads \\'ill no longer he juniors but \\'ill have passed into the land of the Sen iors. Altht. the~· will no longer bear the name of Juniors they ''ill still bear the jumor spirit in their hearts and "ill sti ll keep dear the memory of the days o "hich I ha , ·e just told you. \\'ho \\'Ould not cherish the days which wnnessed the beginning of a life \\Ork. the beginning of a life of service to mankind ! The Jun ior class has indeed been a ,,·orthy class a nd has. we belie\t set an example worthy of being followed by succeeding Junior classes. Let us hope that they will continue to '"lo,·e. serve a nd obey ... as the y han ever done. e,·en after they have crossed the threshold a n..J have passed intc the great ,,·ork-a-day world.

1Literarp 1J9epartment The Legend of \Venonah ELIZABETH CROSGRO\'E

ERY long ago. b:!fore the white man had tra\eled as far w~st as the

V

\lississippi river. Indians lived where we live now. A tribe of Oahkotahs dwelt in their village Keoxa. which lay between the Great River. or the Gitchee Seehee. at the north. and a lake of blue water at the south \\ ahpasha'' ''as the chief over this and many other \'illages. H is lodge \\aS at the farthest end of the village Keoxa. He had three children ll\mg with him. T\\O ''ere sons. tall. straight and brave warriors like their father: the other ''as his daughter named Wenonah. meaning first-born daughter. She ''as so beautiful with her long black hair. bright eyes. and red. full-hiO\\ n lips that she was sometimes called the wild rose of the prairie. The Indian maiden \\'enonah ''as loved hy e\¡eryone in 1-\.eoxa and man~ young men '' ished to marry her. There ''as one young hunter who IO\cd Wenonah more than did any one else. lle went dO\\ n to the marshes and selected the straightest reed that he could find. From this he whittled u flute. upon '' hich he played the most mystical songs of the forest. Early c\er~ morning he played in front of \Vahpashaw's lodge. wooing Wenonah \\ith his £lute. Finally. the father heard him and watched ho\\ Wenonah hstencd each morning for the music. \\'hen the young hunter asked to marry Wenonah the father looked into the eager face of the ma iden. He took his long pipe from his mouth, ble'' a '' reath of smoke into the air. and meditated long. for he loved his Jaughter dear! y. Then he sa1d to her. ''The young hunter speaks well." Again he regarded the young hunter. saying to him at last. "Bring ye g1fts unto my \\ ig'' am so that ye may pay well for my onl:y daughter ... The young hunter ''as poor and so could get fe\\ gifts from his parents and fnends. But he brought a buffalo skin. a few bright feathers. and one stnng of beads. As he laid them before the Great Chief and his sons. he said. "I know nl\ gifts arc not many hut I will spend my ''hole life making Wenonah happy. I will keep her supplied with every comfort and shall hunt food for her in the forest. .. The father frowned. the brothers laughed scornfully. and Wenonah pleaded whtl c her lover was sent from the vi llage. \nether lover. Tamdoka. fie rce and eagle-plumed. a mighty warrior. famous because of the great number of Ojib'' ay scalps he had won. also \\OocJ Wenonah. \she stood hefore \Vahpashaw he spoke: "Let me have thy daughter \\'cnonah. that she may kindle the fire in my '' igwam. so that I may have


some one to serve me when I return from the ''arpath of the t errible Ojth'' ays. He brought her father many gifts of va lue. There were six buffalo skins. a pot of red "ar-paint. a score of finely ,,o,·en blankets. baskets maat h~ skilled hands. strings and strings of heads. and a pair of moccasins fo· usc in the coldest weather. He s ho'' eel the brothers his belt of sca lps an~.: told them tales of his conquests. The favor of the father and the brothers ''as won. But \\'enonah looked tO\\ ards the west. thinki ng of her huntc with the hope of his return in her hean . Tamdoka came many times to ask for Wenonah. but none of her father's threats would persuade her to live in the wigwam of the warrior. One bright morning about corn-planting time. the band of Dahkotahs left Keoxa. They paddled up the great river Gitchee Seebee in their long birch-bark canoes. The journey ''as long and tiring, so when they reached Lake Pepin they were ready to camp. There were many high hills arounJ the lake and the Indians landed and made their camp at the foot of one steep bluff which seemed to rise abruptly from the edge of the water into a high rocky peak that stood dark and foreboding against the sky. The men fished and hunted here. The squaws dug the blue clay at the river bank and lined their baskets '' ith it. They made dishes, too, to parch their corn in. Again Tamdoka begged Wenonah to be his squa'' . This time \Vahpasha'' gave his '"ord to Tamdoka and the betrothal was sealed. The '' edding feast was prepared. But '' hile all the Indians were feasting. Wenonah stole away and climbed quickly up the side of the bluff \\' hen she reached the summit she stretched out her arms to her people and called to t hem. pouring out her heart . "Why must I marry Tamdoka. the warrior? Oh my father. I would rather remain a maiden since I cannot have the hunter. m y lover. the man of my choice ... As the people below began to understand what she was going to do they became terrified. Then the men started S \\ iftly toward her. the mighty Tamdoka leaping first a nd a\\ ay ahead of the others. Below. the ''omen wailed. The Great Chief \Vahpasha'' e\·en broke the vow to Tamdoka as he looked at the slender form of his daughter. so high above him on the rock. "~ l y daughter. hear me ... he cried. " the betrothal shall be broken. I promise. Your hunter shall return ... But Wenonah began to sing her death dirge. "Oh Great Spirit above." she sang in a low. unsteady voice. "look do'' n from your llunting Ground,, for the light in my heart is gone and I must die ... She wavered on the brink of the dizzy cliff. Tamdoka sprang swiftly upward from crag to crag. a ll the men following him . li e reached the summil too late. Already \\'cnonah had d isappeared over the cliff. and fallen upon the rocks. down into the dark deep water of the lake below. This spot is no'' called \ laiden Rock. or Lover's Leap. and it is told hy some. that in the night. ''hen the wind is hlo'' mg and the waters of Lake Pepin lap against the rocky cliff. Wenonah's spirit rises from the lake and again sings her death dirge.

\\'ith hardships I' ve oft been encumbered. I ha,路e sojourned in lands o'er the seas. 'l\ lidst the snows of the ~orth I ha,路e slu.nh ~red. I have dreamed 'neath a tropical breeze.

Dedication of Service E mblem

T

HE Service Emblem which contains forty-five stars commemorating the service under the flag of forty-five young men and \\Ome n of the \\ inona ~ormal SchooL \\as ded icated with impressive and dignified exercises on Washington's Birthday. The program opened \\ ith the readIn~ of a letter from Captain 0. M. Dickerson who is stationed at Camp Dodge. The letter. which was read by H elen H ermann. said the boys were m comfortable barracks. enjoyed plenty of good food. and were allowed to train indoors during t he severe cold weather. President Maxwell dedicated the Service Emblem by recall ing how. in the early years of the school. teachers left the desk to clefend the flag. a nd showed the relation between the history of the school in t hat respect and the situation tOday. H e then read the names of the young men and \\'Omen now m service, and ca lled attention to the beauty of the new Service Emblem 11h1ch hung over the platform.


There were dedicated. in addition to the large Sen·ice Emblem. a smalkone to be hung upon the front of the building where all can see it from th, street, and a framed and decorated roll of honor, containing the names · those in service. The chief 'address of the day 11as c..leli1ered by Judge H. L. Buck. who said it ''as fitting to consider the dedication of a Service Emblem at a tllr when father and son banquets 11ere being held: that Washington and h1 army bore a paternal relation to the sons of today. who are going forth l defend the principles for which Washington fought before we were a nat1on Other features on the program were the reading by Mr. Robert R. Ret .. of a passage from an address delivered hy Premier David Lloyd George 1r the House of Commons in honor of the men and ,,·omen who had taken part in the '' ar. and vocal solos sung hy 1'v1r. Herman Fakler. and Miss i'vlanon Momon .

The Making of the Service Flag UR Sen·ice Flag is truly a 11ork of the school for it was not made!>~ a fe11 students but by many . A commiuee chose the material. an, :--.liss Cooley with the heir of :--.!iss Speckman planned the size of th nag, nine feet by n\·e feet. anJ the si:e and arrangement of the star' Then the students se11 ed the stars on. each star needi ng about thirt) mm utes to be fastened on ,,·ell. The rlag started out '' ith thirty-nine stars bv has now forty-eight.

The War Fund S the Winona \Jormal School is keenly aware of the significance o· this world struggle for Democracy and for Christianity which em· braces the brotherhood of all mankind. the students agreed at th, beginning of the year. on a plan of monthiJ rayments which would furn1sh a sum of money out of '' hich contributions might be made as rapid!) as urgent calls came. It was not the intention that this fund should relieH faculty or students from making their indi1 idual pledges to the 01 gam: It ions making financial drives. and so it does not represent the big sum tha· the ~ormal has generously ra1d as its share to\\ ard the world struggle to• Liberty. The school has tried to make its pledges as varied as t he cal ls ha1e heen. The Library 1-'und. the object of '' hich ''as to send books to ou hoys at the cantonments and at the front. appealed especially to us college students '' ho hoped that the men representing us should not lack in readm!~ material during their rest hours. One hundred dollars was sent to this fund /\ s imilar amount ,,·as gladly paid to the Y. i'vl. C.

Alumni Flag

the cast ''all of the assembly room beside the Sen ice Emblem hangs the American Flag presented to the W. :--..:. S .. this year. by the Alumni. The flag is eighteen feet by twelve feet and is as beautiful as it is large. The school is deeply grateful to the Alumni for this gift which represents the ideals of our countr y and. we hope, of theW.!\. S.

Our \V ar Garden

P

ERHAPS you ha' e never heard of bottled potatoes. Well. '' e had never heard of them either until last spring and the \\ ay we got the information "as hy having a ,,·ar garden. You ''ill remember that the scarcity of potatoes in the spring of 1917 pr~sentcd a rather serious problem and. of course. as to~ al citizens. the ~loreJ Hall girls fairly jumped at the chance to make a ''ar garden in ''hich to raise potatoes, ''hen it was announced that Mrs. Frank I lorton had asked for the pri,·ilcgc of loaning us a plot of land by the lake. for that purpose. I guess it was rather amusing to the neighbors to sec the girls. attired lor garden work '' ith rakes and hoes. descend ing the path of the lakeside garden. To tell the truth, we were quite amused at ourselves. But the garJen! It ''asn't a garden at all. but a junk pile. for, above the ground lor several inches. ''ere bottles and tin pans and glass and stones. and the same a1 ticles continued for a considerable depth under the surface. It scrmed discouraging at nrst but ,,·e bu1TO\\ ed after the cans. carried them ·mo the road and made it possible to see the ground.


Planting days arrived at last and '' c really didn't mind digging potatv holes and seed trenches in the sod and stones for. all the time. we were plan路 ning on the good meals ''e should have in the fall . (At least the Jumor~ ''ere thinking of them. Perhaps those '' ho flunked in Arithmetic were thinking how hot it would be to hoe during the summer term). Planting the seeds as we did. in with the discarded tinware. we expected that the beans at least would appea r on the stalks already canned. We were disappointed in that. but the real surprise came in the fall when a potato ''as found snuggly fitted in the neck of a boule a nd that is the first time \IC had heard of bottled potatoes. Our war garden was a great s uccess tho and was the means of furnish路 ing us with fift y bushels of potatoes. eight bushels of beets. seven bushels of carrots, three-fourths of a bushel of beans. seventy-five bunches of radishes and all the lettuce we coLIId eat besides furnishing those who workcu in the garden with enough exercise to warrant their skipping gymnasiun, c lasses. This spring it will be unnecessary to stress potato raising but rl it were. we would be willing to do that bit for Uncle Sam tho to do so '' oulu require removing two feet of junk instead of one. H.

The Liberty Loan - M orey Hall Scholarship

T

HE war committee of our school has been mos t active in devising ways of getting money and in deciding what the best ways of disposing of it are. One of the rmest plans which has been carried out. in part, is the purchasing of Liberty Loan Bonds as a foundation for the Liberty Loan-Morey Hall-Scholarship. The plan is to buy a one hundred dollar bond at every issue of government bonds. So far. two one hundred dollar bonds have been purchased and the third one is to be taken out now in thrs third drive. If the war ends \路ery soon. the school will continue addin~ one hundred dollars each year to the fund until the desired amount of mane~ is secured. The scholarship \\ hich is to be made possible by the money im路ested in the bonds will be a most desirable one to obtain. The interest on the money secured for the scholarship is to be given toward the current expense~ of the fortunate young lady . In addition to the money. a single room at Morey Hall is to be set apart for the holder of the scholarship. and her board will also be given to her. Just think what a wonderful opportunitY some one will get . I wonder who will be the frrst happy holder of the scholarship.

ilE l\1endelssohn Club has gained much favor and popularity in the community this year. This popularity was due. especia ll y. to its excellent number at the Vaudeville entertainment last fall at the Opera House. for the benefit of the Red Cross. T he Club has done splendid work all year. having appeared in a special number. with Miss Dorothy Sherwood as soloist. at the Thanksgiving Commencement program. and twice in chapel exercises. the last occasion being the presentation of the 1'\:ormal School Service Flag. This spring the Club worked hard on its May Festival program \\ h1ch included many delightful selections and \\'as the "best ever" of all the "best evers... F. C.

The MacDowell Club

addition to the Mendelssohn Club. two other musical so::ieties live in our school. The MacDowell Club consists of about one hundred girls \\ ho have stud ied folk songs and favorite American melodies this year. The St. Cecilia Society consists of about two hundred fifty girls. This year it has studied the works of modern American composers in addition to a presentation of H andel's "Messiah... This masterpiece of the famous composer was given by the chorus to a most sympathetic audience. A greater compliment to the work of Miss Smith and the chorus could not be paid than that which was unconsciously given in the request that the "Mess iah .. be repeated. The close of the year's work \\aS marked by a beautiful Spring Festi\al \\ hich consisted of a program by the St. Cecilia Society on music of the Allies, a recita l by the :"\ lendelssohn Club. and a program by the l\ lusic Supervision Club.

'\! Monday, when \ ou hear an announcement of a Y. W. C. 1\. meet-

ing to he held at f1ve P. lvf. in the Study Room. or "hen you see a poster on the Bulletin Board announcing a meeting. does that mean anything to you at all? Just what does the Y. \V. C. A. stand for in your mmJ: It is an organized body of young women working and striving to promote Christian interest and friendship in the school. trying to make life mean more. be more to all the students. The work of theY. \V. C. A. starts early in the fa ll before most of you have arrived with your baggage and curiosity about the . ormal School. "e\'eral days before school is formally opened. the cabinet members are here meeting trains. and even before that writing letters of welcome to the ne'' girls '' ho are entering. Then \\'hen the hurry and hustle of school hegin there are homesick. unhappy girls and it is up to theY . \V. C. A. girls to comfort them. make them happy, and introduce them to many other g1rls '' ho. goodness knows. perhaps feel the ,·cry same way. Altho all Y W. C. A. members help. there is one committee that is in charge of this. It is the social service committee. Besides attending to this duty. they also g1\e comfort to many unfortu nate people who perhaps are not al\\"ays thought about in the stress a nd hurry of school duties. This winter they have read a nd sung to t he elderly. given comfort to several sick children, and remembered many little boys and girls who otherwise would have had nothing to brighten their Christmas. About two '' eeks have gone by since the opening of school. Can you go hack that far \\'ith me: It is time to get new members for theY. \V. C. A. and now the membership committee puts forth its best efforts, being helped


of course h~ all the cabinet. to gain many nc"· members anJ tag them '' 1th ltttlc ptnk tags '' h1ch shO\\ that they have joined. Later they may pm their dollars. Th1s comm1ttee. in cooperation '' ith the social sen·ice corr mittee. has also organized the ReJ Cross \\Ork at the library. \\'ill you turn over the calendar' Several weeks ha,·e elapsed and no~ 1t is time to Initiate the eight~ or more new members ''hom '' c taggc~, This sen·ice is held at the cit~ Y \\'. C A. Its symbolism, its thought. 1 so beautiful that each memhcr long carries the remembrance of it. Tht social committee has this initiation in charge. as well as all other social e\ents of the year After the school year is ''ell started the program committee is at '' ork planning interesting. helpful meetings. This year \\'e ha\'C heard of the wonJerf ul \\ ork of the Y. 0.!. C. t\ . at the front. of the '' orldwide Red Cross sen ice. and ha\·e had talks on the missions. in our countr~ and abroa,. \\'e have also 1-:ad a talk on "Sunday Study" follo\\·ed h~ open discussion. The poster committee aids the program commiuee b~ announcing meetings on the bulletin hoard. This committee is a general informat1on committee as "ell. and reads "hat is happening in relation to Y. \V. C. \ affairs. It has also helped in organizing informal Bible study groups. When you have gone to theY . \V. C. A. rest room has it occurred to you to'' onder" ho "as in charge of it, TheY. \V. C. A. maintains a committee to look after it. Often the girls are tired or sick and this is the place that they may call the1r own. It is meant for them and \ve want them to get all the benefit and comfort possible from it. l\ lr. Sandt has given hisservices in adding to the attractiveness of the room and the Y. \V. C. A. IS greatly tndebted to h1m. But behind all organizations there must be money. and of course the Y. \V. must ha,·e it too. to meet its needs. The directories are put out each year under the direction of the fmance committee and what could we do Without this precious little book of addresses and telephone calls 1 \\'e ha,·e also had great fun in casting hags of popcorn among the bleachers at basket hall games to help raise money for the delegate to the conference next summer at Geneva. Does the Y. \V. C. A. mean more to you no\\ : It is for you juniors to make it mean still more next year. to reach the ne\\ girls. to strengthen and encourage them. and to make theY. \V. C.

C ROWTI I The Junior High School grew out of the grammar gmdc department b,• adding a nint" grade and adopting. largely. the course of study used in the city school<,. About half a do:c1' from the eighth grade were induced to remain for ninth grade work. This \cur we ha1 eighteen doing ninth grade work. and a total of scventy-fi,e in the junior htgh school PHYSICAL EDUC/\TIO:--.: Nlr. T. 0. Dillon. who came to us from the Colorado State ormal School where fx had been in charge of the work in Physical Education. has done remarkable work wtth tht junior high school boys and girls. The Elementary Basketball team won over the team,, the ,·arious ward schools. and then defeated a picked ream from all the city schoob. l'hc did not lose a single game. The regular Junior High School team defeated the Cotter school team and ever~· other team of equa l standing that it has plavcd with. These boy<> ha1~ wonderful team work. The girls play ,·olle\ ball and have done ,·erv good work too. There is a regular period every da~ fo;· physical education and ·every one is required t take the work. This includes swimming one day each week. The work is partly corrccmc and aims for grace. posture. etc .. and is partly recreational. Mi\NLAL TRAINING __ 1\,lr. Sandt of the regular l'ormal School faculty has direct charge of the work in Manual I raining. It includes shop work. mechanical drawing. pnnting and book binding. \\c hope in the near future to add concrete work.

Physical Education m the Elementary School I-IYSICt\L education in the normal tmining ~chool was gi,·en a new impetus thb \C. . • when a physical director was secured to ha,·e active cha rge of the work. Herctof6rc this work had been done bv two student assistants. one for the bovs and another fu· the girls. Last fall :vir. Dillon. the new director. took up all the gvrnnasium. swur ming. and play activities. and with the help of several <.;tudcnt assistants. has carried out , ·cry efficient program. Athletics. corrective cxerctses. and pla~ have received most empha't' Some of the inter-school contests and some phases of the regular work arc worth~ of notice Altho the normal relay team was forced to take third place last fall in the annual rcla1 race of the seven elementary sehoo!s of \\'inona. the basketball quintet won the banner in the snmc leahruc b~ finishing the season without a single defeat. After completing the rcgu· lar schedule the undefeated team won a decided victory from an all-star team of player< picked from the \'arious competing teams. In the vollc~ ball league of six elementary schools ou r girls' team was tied for second honors \\'ith the Central girls. the Lincoln team having won first place. These basketball and volley ball contests were played on Friday afternoon~ at four o'clo:;k in the norm< 1 school gymnasium. The boys of the normal junior high school in a series of basketball games with the Cott<· and public junior high 5Chools of Winona also won first honors. These contests were plaYca off as curtain raisers for the home games on the schedule of the normal school varsity. i\n interscholastic track and field meet is being planned for this spring in addition t the regular indoor baseball league games and the annual :vtay Day fete. To offset the c111 effects of speciali:ed competition for the few. numerous color teams have been organized fll' both girls' and boys' gymnasium classes. Pupils arc grouped for such teams according ru their si:c and ability as well as their age and grade. Popular contests include those in basket ball. volley ball. indoor baseball. soccer. swimming. JUmping. rcla~· racing. and distance thro~ ing with balls and weights. All competition is between organized teams and records of stand· ing<.; are kept posted so that all may learn the comparative merits of the various teams in th< color league. Such competition has this year netted results in the nature of fair pia~ ano better all around dc,·clopment for the greatest number.

Our Clubs

L

AST fall when \\·e assembled for our year's work it was felt that J new system of clubs was in order. Vario:..~5 plan> were suggesteJ. a few of which were worked out and voteJ upon. The plan we adopted has proveJ very satisfactory. Each grour o: people especially interested in some line of work has formed a club with Onl faculty member as advisor. The result is that e\·ery Friday afternoon at four o'clock each student burning \\ ith enthusiasm. hurries to a club room to Jiscuss some current question. read some worth-while book. or work on some interesting problem The best consequence of these clubs is that we are afforded an oppotunity to become better acquainted \\ ith each other and with the excitm0 happenings of this wonder-woriJ of ours.

The Modern Literature Club UR club. known by the name of ":vtodern Literature Club," has a> its purpose the reading and discussing of modern writings in the forms of plays. poems. essays. and ftction. written by popular authors. Of course at present the literature relates for the most part to the war \\'ith :vtrs. Chorpenning as our ad\·isor. we have studied Rupert Brookes "Poems and Letters ... Allan Seegar's "Poems and Letters ... collections of \\·ar poems by different authors. and "Under f'ire." We have made this club different from the others by emphasizing mformality . In doing this we realized that a change in scenery would not bt onjectionable. so :VIrs. Chorpenning invited us to have our meetings at her studio. Then. too. we wanteu to do a\\ ay with the boresome busines, meetings. officers. and formal organization. so we decided that these elements were unnecessary. and that it \\as more pleasing to have each girl take her own responsibility. Thus. any girl. who knows where to get one of the selections to be read. is responsible for securing that book and for seeing that it circulates among the other members of the Club. In this \\'3~ one offtcer does not have all the work of hunting for a book. Another informality is our method of studying the selections. One girl knows the reading matter so that she can talk intelligently about 1t while others who have not read the material so thoroly give their suggestions and opinions thus maintaining free discussion thruout.

The Four Circle HIS organization gre\\ out of a strongly felt need to learn more of current literature. It was suggested by some of the girls in a critic meeting one afternoon that our group form a club to study some of e nt:\\ war poets and other topics of special interest to us. \V e were workIll~ 1\ tth :vltss llubbard at this time. so we considered her a sort of \tlother 11ur Club. for it \\as she \\ ho first opened our eyes to the (act that we nn\ ltttle present day literature. A great deal of discussion as to what the name of the organization houkl he came up. There were four things which we all decided were very mrortant to strive for in this group a nd also in later life. So \\ e decided to o-r the word "Four" as part of our name. At all our meetings. we drew our ,hc~trs around in a large circle; from this we decided that the word "Circle" ,ouiJ he more fitting than ··club... From the name we worked out our rn~ignia \\ ith the t\\ent)-l\\'0 jewels in the -l representing the t\\·enty-two charter members. The meetings ha\ e all been helpful. \\'e took up the trio. Chesterton. \\ells. and Sha\\. first of all. Those who had read an~ works of these men •cported upon them and an interesting discussion came about. At another meeting we studied the poems and life of Rupert Brookes. at another Alan Scegar s "Letters and Diary": at another Robert Service's war poems. At one meeting. a member reported upon a nd read parts of !!amlin Garland's "Son of the l'vliddle Border .. \\'hich is fu ll of local color. At another meetm;.; \\·e studied lullabies. the essence of which showed how the c haracteristics ol different people are determined by geographical environment. Our last meeting was a "children's party." We forgot school long enough to act our parts. to sit in a large circle on the floor and cat popcorn. At t his meetmg we each contributed som ething from one of these poets: Lucy Larcom. Celia Thaxter. Jean lngelow. Phoebe Cary. Alice Cary. and Christine Rosetti. The pleasure of being a member of the "Four Circle" does not end wtth graduation. \V e hope a nd feel that the ne\\ members will do even more next year because of the start \\ hich we have enjoyed gh·ing the "Four Circle."

0 you know what Agora means 1 If you look it up in a classical dictionary you will find it means "Council... But if you ask the meaning of the word here at the Winona Normal School. you ''ill finJ it to he the name of a live and interesting current events clu b. :V1eetings are held once a week at which time we discuss the events of the times. Interesting discussions are carried on and often special topics arc given by the members of the club. However. there is another side to our club other than the literary one. \\ c occasiona ll y give over the hour to social times because we believe in the old saying. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." We have had several pleasant social gatherings. but even then the "current events" were not forgotten. We were reminded of them in a clever way by those in charge. The success of the clu b has been due to the active interest taken hy club members and it is hoped that the activities of the club will continue. M.M.

Recitals

O

~E

of the most delightful musical events of tre year was a pianoforte recital given by .\1iss Ah·ina Boley, music supervisor in the tratnl00 school. The program consisted of modern compositions which 11cre interpreted by .\1iss Boley in a 1·ery pleasing manner. Another musical event much appreciated was a pianoforte recital given by .\1iss Brannan, who interpreted some exquisite drawings of the art department, by means of several of Beethoven Sonatas.

HOur Movies" S a result of a series of experiments carried on last year in the MoJel Building, the value of school mo1·ies \\aS brought out clearly. and :t was decided to install a machine in the assembly room. So when 11c reLUrned from our holiday vacation we found a couple of holes in the rear 11 al l of the assembly room and upon further investigation found a little booth in the rear hall. This discovery led to many questions and theonc< ac; to the object ol· the booth. Probably the best answer was this: "Oh. that is Prexy's new office. He has been losing a lot of time latel) tr~ ing to keep the assembly room quiet. so he has built that office up there from ''here he can watch the assembly room while he works." However. we soon found the real object of the above. namely, that of" moving picture booth. A standard moving picture machine was installed and as we a lready had an operator in the person of Mr. Sandt we were soon treated to the pleasure of school movies. The primary object of this machine is that of education. The pictures are to supplement the lectures "e are in the habit of hearing in the assembl~ room. This it does very nicely. Many things which it would be difficult to explain clearly are readily grasped \\hen we see pictures. especially mO\ing pictures. Altho the machine ''ill be used primarily for educational films it has hcen '' hispered that pictures for the purpose of amusement will also be run. \\'e therefore gladly welcome this addition to our school equipment.

HIS Annual would not be complete without a reference to our ex-class president. H arol d Olsen. Ole left during the early part of Februar) to take up work at Carleton Coll ege; latest reports from that institu· tion indicate that he is living up to the reputation he esta blished at Normal Besides being class president, Ole was an "A" student, took a prominent part in athletics, and was above all a good fellow and friend. Altho he docs not graduate with our class. we will a lways feel that he is one of us. and \\'ISh him the hcst of luck in his new work.

ERY early in our junior year we, the present Senior c lass, developed a fondness for parties. We never missed the opportuni ty of being entertained '' hen the opportunity presented itself.

Class Play

T

HE fact that this year's class is a ··war Class" is reflected most strong! in the class play. It has heen t he custom of the school in other yea~ to put on rather an elaborate class play. requiring a large cast. an consequently quite expensive to stage; the primary object not being to makt money but to afford a large number of students the opportunity to take pa rt in dramatics. A different policy was decided upon this yea r. namely. that of gi\ in~ a modern play requiring only a small cast. Th is would interfere very little with the Red Cross work which t he girls ha ve been carrying on. and would also increase t he proceeds. which are to be donated to the Red Cross. h~ reduci ng the bi ll for costumes. By thus staging a play we are try ing to do our biggest "bit" to help wi n the \\ ar. The play chosen was G. E. Mason's "Green Stockings ... a modern comedy in three acts. The action takes place at the home of Wilham Faraday. a wealthy old Englishman with \\hom li ve his four daughters; Phylhs engaged: :VIadge a nd Evelyn. both married. a nd Celia. the eldest of the sisters unmarried. Celia has heen forced to wear green stockings twice. }x. cause of the old English custom \\·hich requ ires an unmarried woman t" \\car green stockings at the wedding of a you nger sister. In order to c~­ cape the bantering \\ hich s he is receiving at t he prospect of weari ng them a th ird Lime. she makes believe she is engaged to a Colonel Smi t h. and i~ obliged to carry on an imaginary correspondence with th is Colonel Smith in order to car ry out her bl uff. B y accident one of her letters is mailed and falls into the ha nds of a real Colonel Smith. Smith v isits Celia's and the result is that Celia will never agai n be forced to wear green stockings.

H ockey. basketball , baseball. \Olley ~all. tennis and other out-door games ''ere played. 1n the absence of a Ph~s1cal Training Director, these classes in athletic games were taken care of h) certain senior girls. majoring in Physical Education. After Thanksgiving 1v1 iss Broughton came to conduct this '' ork During the winter Aoor \\·ork was taught together with folk dancing and games.

Coach T. 0 . Dillon

T

HE Winona Normal's success in athletics this year. has been due, for the most part, to the ability of her athletic director, Coach T. 0. Dillon. There are t\\'O evident reasons for his producing winning teams. One of these is his knowledge of the game, and the other is his power to make the fellows fight in a do-or-die spirit. Since Nlr. Dillon has had charge of athletics at Normal, the "Purple and White" have been put on the athletic map. During the past year Winona )Jormal gained con~rderable distinction by winning the state normal school basketball championship. rootba ll. a lso thru the efforts of Coach Dillon. \\'aS put on a rirmer foundation to be built on next fall. Coach Dillon is fair in his meth(/Js of using his athletes. He is still young enough to remember his days or hoyhood: and, he a lso is a friend of every student at. ormal, and accordmgly deserves the popularity he enjoys. Coach Dillon has piloted teams to championship before coming to \\mona. At Gun nison. Colorado. where he coached t\\ o years previous to hrs coming here. he developed a football team that wasn't beaten the whole '~ason.

Mr. Dillon is an example of an excellent coach who has won recognition as a player, himself. During the three years that he attended De Pauw Lniversity. he \\On dist inction as an athlete. He was a member of the De Pauw Varsity basketball team for two years. 1912 1913. In his Junior \ear at college he \\as captain of the varsity track team. He also \\as a member of the varsity football team for t\\'O seasons. "Coach" is disti nguished by his radiating personali ty \\ hich won the respect and admiration of all the p layers at school. His spirit of work is rortrayed by his fa\orite slogan, "Let's-Growl. ..

Our next opponent ''as the \ lanka to Commercwl College. on Februar) 22nJ at \\' inona. Altho the~ defeated us 30 to 26. we felt confident that we had improved a great deal during the last two weeks.

Baab was a nother beginner of basketba ll. But he developed to be the mainstay of the ··purple and White'' lineup. The team '"as built around this tall, lanky center. Many of the scores made were t he result of hts long one-ha nded s hots. H e has a n average of six baskets or twelve romts a ga me.

Because of illness "Cec" did not play '' ith the team in the earl J part of the season. But , when he got back he set t hings on fire with his excellent shooting ability and fast floor 11ork.
