CLASS HAS BIG OUTING
Class Under Direction of Miss Hearne
Spends Week-End in Hills of Wim-
berly; Encounter Great Experiences.
P. E. 132, class in coaching of bas-
ket ball, under the supervision of Miss
Hearne, spent the past week-end at
Wimiberly. Camp life proved to be as
enjoyable as anticipated with plenty of
thrills and excitement thrown in. The
party was divided into squads detailed
to do K. P. duty at the several meals.
On the first evening, after a nice swim
and participation in a savory meal pre-
pared by Squad 1, a camp fire was built
around w’hich the party gathered to be
entertained in stunts, games and songs
by the different members. Miss Christ-
enson added to the enjoyment with
seme of her delightful stories.
Amid the laughter and fun, there ap-
peared out of the darkness, two un-
known horsemen, who demanded a
“chaw of terbacker.” Mr. Eowman,
company life-saver and body-guard, in-
sisted that they move on as there was-
n’t a “chaw” of anything in camp, not
even a “chaw” of gum.
The party, having undergone much
jolting and having endured several
blowouts returned much refreshed from
the outdoor fun.
Those attending and invited guests
were, Misses Hearne, Christenson,
Mead, Marshall, Kimbrough, Eckert,
Brenham, Vernhagen, Davis, Brown,
Horne, Reese, Augusta and Emma En-
geling, Leak Johnson, Jenkins, and Pe-
ters, Mr, and Mrs. Lowman.

Why don’t they pull their tusks?”
Mr. Smith; “Perhaps too great a
job. If they could get the elephant to
consent to it, it might be done.”

Mississippi where Mrs. Harrison has
Mr. Harrison said tfiat one of his
very first acts upon arriving at Har-
vard was to buy a football ticket. In
our opinion he was fortunate indeed
in seeing such games as Harvard vs.
Yale and Harvard vs. Centre, He at-
tended the track meets of the Northern
Colleges. This spring he was present
at the famous Harvard alumni meet-
ing. There__were representatives as far
back as 1853. Mr. Harrison said that
it was an inspiring sight to see the
many grey and bald-headed paying
tribute to Harvard.
We are more than proud to say that
beside obtaining the Scholarship, Mr.
Harrison was a joint winner of a $275
prize in the Helen Choate Bell Prize
Essay Contest in American Literature.
His theme was “Whittier and Frost:
Their Relation to the Ehrlier and La-
ter Renaissance in American Poetry.”
The judges in the contest were C. N.
Greenough, Bliss Perry, and L. B. R.
While in Boston Mrs. Harrison was
a student in Radcliffe College. This
is the women’s department of Harvard,
having however, the same instructors
as Harvard. She studied under Dr.
Irving S. Babbitt, the greatest author-
ity in America on the romantic move-
ment. She sang in the Radcliffe Chor-
al Club under Dr. Davidson, who dir-
ects the Harvard Gleq Club. She had
immediate charge of foreign periodi-
cals, and made acquaintance of many
of Harvard’s productive scholars, like
Dr. Channing, Hart, Lowes, etc.
Little Richard Jr., was in the Cam-
bridge public school. He is fond of
New England but glad to get back to

the year’s study and travel, but glad to

The Chautauqua Literary Society is!
the oldest organization on the hill—in 1
fact, it was the first society organized
in Normal. It is an organization for
men and since its beginning many
young men, who were untrained in the
ways of parliametary rule and in the
technique of public speaking, have been
transformed into capable and effective
Young man, if you are interested in
public speaking and debating, come out
and line up with the Chautauquans. If
you are an accomplished speaker, come
out and exercise your talent; if you
are not an effective speaker, come out
and learn the fundamental requirements
of a good orator. If you have no de-
sire to become familiar with the tech-
nique of public speaking come out and
enjoy yourself by listening to some one
else talk. It is your sociat duty to
participate in the various activities of
the school which you attend—then join
the oldest and most progressive so-
ciety on the hill.

Mr. Harry (at Riverside) : “Say, Mr.
Peterson, where did you have that
bathing suit made?”
Mr. Peterson: “Had it made in New
York. Told the manufacturers to take
the measurements of the Statue of Li-

“Well, Jerry, I’ll settle that little
debt that I owe you. Which would you
rather have in settlement, an old ten or
a new one?”
“Oh, I’ll take the new*>ne”, said Jerry.
“Just as you say,” rejoined Griff as
he handed Jerry a new one dollar bill.
“You can always count on me,” said
the adding machine.

lady, regardless of what part of the
state you are from, if you attend school
here and pass qualifications here suc-
cessfully, will be due full recognition
for your work in other colleges all
over the United States if you desire
to continue your education. This new
achievement has put us directly on the
firing line in educational progress. It
opens the way for better and higher
achievements. It removes the greatest
bind that any normal college may have.
With that out of the way, what is
to be our future? Are we to sit calmy
by and smoke our pipe and boast over
success and let other opportunities slip
by unchalleneged? Are we going to
roost high up on our pinnacle of suc-
cess and let ourselves literally dry up
..from the want of the exercise secured
by trying to attain a higher mark? No,
never! In the name of Maroon and
Gild, we will not. There will be no
resting along the road. There will be
no boasting. We are proud of our

right or wong. Yet we would not be
