This is the Battlefield, 

The scene of many struggles, not only as recorded in national history, 

But also of many encounters, closer to us in experience, 

Those which came in our combat where we attempted to wrestle with Igno- 
rance ; 

Conquering him sufficiently as to appear slain by the school board, 

Where we apply for permission to instruct the youths of the district. 

This is the Battlefield, 

On it are strewn evidences of this year's campaign 

Much fighting has been done in mass formation; much by hand-to-hand en- 

The manoeuvering is over; there remains for us, the field. 

We seek satisfaction by reconnoitering here and there, picking up relics that 
bring back to us the original encounter. 

During the campaign in the past year many misunderstandings, many hard 
feelings and disappointments have slipped in with the joys and suc- 

The treaty has been signed; the pipe of peace has been smoked; the relics have 
been collected. 

The Great Spirit is now invoked to keep the hatchet safely buried, the toma- 
hawk withdrawn, when the relics come to the gaze of officers and 

This is the Battlefield, 

For those who come back to continue the campaign there remains but one 

thing ''Carry on." 
For those who find themselves promoted to new regiments, there remains but 

one thing, "Carry on". 

Two Years of Progress' 

INCE The Battlefield will fall into the hands of man}' Alumnae and 
friends of the school, who may have no accurate or full conception of the 
progress the Fredericksburg Normal has made during the past biennium 
nor of the contemplated improvements during the next biennium, at the 
invitation of the editorial staff, I take pleasure in giving a brief account 
of its recent accomplishments and a prospectus of other extensions about to be 

On the material side we have lecently laid concrete walks to the President's 
home and the Faculty home, rebuilt the driveway through the grove, secured a 
new Reo Speed-wagon for use by the practice-teaching Seniors, made improve- 
ments to the dining hall, added equipment to the kitchen, put in a new gymnasium 
floor, supplied fiftv per cent, additional equipment to the home economics depart- 
ment, laid a new gas main to the school, set out an orchard and erected a new 
fifty thousand gallon steel water tank. 

On the academic, professional and recreational sides the school has intro- 
duced a new commercial teacher training course, added a critic teacher to Lee 
Hill School, established a practice and observation junior high school at Ruther 
Glen, adopted the group elective system in the course of study, further perfected 
the student government plan, revived and renamed the two literary societies, done 
a notable religious work through the Y. W. C. A., strengthened the physical 
education department, developing one of the strongest, if not the very strongest, 
basket-ball sextettes in the State, introduced a Lyceum series of entertainments 
with a large season membership, and provided moving pictures weekly for the 

For the session 1921-22 the institution will eliminate the high school or 
undergraduate department, placing the school upon a wholly professional basis ; 
will add the senior year of the commercial teacher-training course, with an added 
member of the faculty in this department ; will establish an additional practice 
school at Spotsylvania Court House for use by the high school seniors, with two 
critic teachers ; will double the supervisory force ; will expand the work of the 
Extension Bureau ; will complete the new grammar grade course of study for 
the training school ; will provide a full summer quarter for the summer of 1922 ; 
will refurnish the parlor of Frances Willard Hall; will add improvements to the 
kitchen, dining hall and service of meals, and will place only two girls in a dormi- 
tory room, with the possible exception of some corner rooms, in which three may 
be placed. 

Subject to legislative appropriations, the Fredericksburg Normal also hopes, 
during the next two years, to add the second unit to Virginia Hall so as to provide 
cabinet rooms for the Y. W. C. A. and student government councils, literary 
society halls, Y. W. C. A. hall, guest rooms, enlarged library, kitchenette and the 
like. We hope to join the Administration Building with the central heating plant, 
to erect on our grounds an elementary training school, to build a concrete road 


through the grove, to extend our system of concrete walks, to erect a cold-storage 
plant, and establish at the school a health education center as the basis for an 
extension course for teachers in the health education of school children. 

The Administration has great pride in these accomplishments and freelv 
confesses that they could not have been realized without the co-operation of an 
able and loyal faculty and officers, and an enthusiastic and devoted student body. 
The spirit of the whole school has been truly wonderful. I desire to publicly 
record my high appreciation of this splendid spirit, to express afresh my well- 
warranted confidence in the faculty, officers and students of the Fredericksburg 
Normal, and to renew my pledge that all the energies of my heart and brain shall 
be expended unstintingly in the promotion of its best interests and the develop- 
ment of the course of teacher training within its walls.

She assumes the burden of a 
whole recitation period in Biology and 
gets A-j-. She assumes the burden of 
a correspondence with Onley every day. 
She undergoes a fashionable operation 
(we are sorry for her) to be at Onley 
for a few weeks. Oh, yes, she is the 
Rooseveltian of our class. Strenuous 
— what say ! 

Lou has a scintillating wit — but it is 
too merry to be biting. And she is 
such an airy fairy, that sometimes we 
wonder if she does dance with other 
imps on a moonbeam. She is a good 
student and doesn't care a thing about 
the bovs — oh, no !

works hard and accomplishes

her mastery. Her motto seems to be, 
"If at first you don't succeed, try, try,

be as successful elsewhere as she was 
at the Training School.

l|dy NEY is known as "Effie" by her 

friends, when they're friendly, or 

as Ham. when they're peeved. 

Effie entered the school in 1918 but 
became so enthusiastic over the idea 
of teaching that she failed to return 
until she discovered that there was 
really more to learn. She is, above all, 
diligent. Although her favorite bird is 
the woodpecker, she hopes by emulat- 
ing the owl in the matter of hours, to 
become as famed for wisdom as that 
bird. Nightly schedule: Sleep, 11-12; 
lesson plans or Hygiene the remainder 
of the night. We have reason to be- 
lieve that certain of those lesson plans 
never reached any critic teacher, but 
slipped into the out-going mail.

She is the best companion one could 
wish for and just enough of a flirt to 
make her one of the cutest little dames

hearts of so many boys ! for she is 
composed of fun and laughter and 
good times. Now don't misunderstand 
me — for Marg-aret's other traits I have 
not told. She made an exceptional 
teacher at the Training School and pos-

at playtime, but the serious efficient 
woman when the play time is over.

she does think that she has "Hunt-ed"

A Tale In Five Parts 


HE Autumn day was drawing to a close and the last rays of the setting 
sun were beginning to sink beyond the distant horizon. I was seated 
before an open fireplace and soft strains of music floated from some- 
where in the distance : 

"Sing me to sleep, the shadows fall. 
Let me forget the world and all — " 

I drifted into the land of dreams. My mind went back to a certain never-to- 
be' forgotten day, six years ago; the evening changed to morning; the chair in 
which I was seated became an automobile which was speeding rapidly through 
the grove leading to the Fredericksburg Normal. 

Part I 

Jj^> HE automobile came to a sudden stop and we immediately viewed our new 

\J surroundings with awe and rapture. Was this beautiful place, situated in 
such a lovely grove, the Fredericksburg Normal School ? Yes, it must 
be, for the driver had gotten out and was removing our baggage from the 

machine. We quickly stepped from the car, paid the driver, and started toward 
one of the donritories. We had never seen so many girls at one time before, and 
cars laden with them were arriving from all directions. When we reached the 
porch of the dormitory one of the girls seated there told us that we should find 
the matron of the school in her office on the second floor. So it was then that we 
made our first acquaintance with Miss Forbes, who graciously received us, and 

assigned us to our rooms and room-mates. All day the girls arrived by every 
train and that night ''the-down-the-river girls" came up on the boat. How envi- 
ously we new girls watched the greeting the "old girls" received ! 

It took us two whole days to get properly classified and then how proud we 
felt when we found that there were thirty girls classified as second year high 
school students or "Preps," as everyone insisted on calling us. Among our num- 
ber were Sarah Bivens, Winnie Carter, Earlevne Burruss and Virginia Dillard. 

It didn't take us long to realize that our real school life had begun. We were 
introduced to "Caesar" and learned that "all Gaul is divided into three parts." 
In Zoology, Miss Atkinson taught us all about bugs, beetles, and butterflies, and 



from Miss Smith we learned how to speak and write correctly. We organized 
our basket-ball team and practiced nearly every day. We even dreamed of beating 
the Seniors until Miss Houchen informed us that we shouldn't be allowed to enter 
the class games. 

The days, weeks, and even months flew by very fast. Our class motto was 
"Not on top, but climbing," and as we watched those dignified Seniors receive 
their diplomas in June, we sadly wondered if we should ever reach the top. 

Part II 

IT was September and we returned to the Normal to greet our old friends 
and to meet with new ones. Wasn't it nice to be "an old girl"? We walked 
the campus in groups, laughing and talking gayly, trying to make the new 
girls envy us, as we envied the "old girls" the year before. There were 
forty-two girls classified as Freshmen. We felt very dignified and were inclined 
to look down on the "little Preps," forgetting that only one year of hard work 
separated them from us. Among our new Freshmen were Madeline Coe, Eliza- 
beth Morrison, Earline Finney and Helen Mills and we gladly welcomed them into 
our group. 

We soon realized that we had to work just a little bit harder as Freshmen 
than we had as Preps, for everyone seemed to think that we should know ever so 
much more than we did the year before. It was through the untiring energy of 
Mr. Cook that we learned "A straight line is the shortest distance between two 
points." Miss Goolrick taught us the mysteries of Mediaeval History, and it was 
from Miss Keller that we learned to sing "Do. re mi." 

Our studies took up a good deal of our time, but we could always find time 
to practice basket-ball and play tennis. We believed in the old maxim, "Allwork 
and no play makes Jack a dull boy." We felt sure that we were going to win 
laurels for ourselves when the class games came off, but, alas, for our hopes, 
we were defeated in every game. "Defeated yet without a stain." Everyone 
admired the spirit in which we took defeat. 

The rest of the year passed by swiftly and, before we realized it, June had 
come and we had bid our classmates "Au revoir." 

Part III 

|UR Sophomore year stands out as one of the most successful years of our 
school life. We began it by the addition of some very valuable members 
WJE& to our class. "The-down-the-river-bunch" were admitted, which included 
=**" Juliet, Dorothy, Anne Lyle, Hilda, Russell, and Margaret. There were 
other new faces to greet us that September : Mrs. Harrison succeeded Miss Forbes 
as matron, and Mrs. Motley took Mrs. Chew's place. We were grieved not to 
have Mr. Cook with us, but we had to content ourselves with a letter saying that 
he was doing his bit in France. So we accepted Miss Todd Motley in his place 
and we liked her so well, or she liked us so well, that we adopted her as a Soph- 

We were just beginning to forget the pleasures of the summer vacation and 
to get down to real study when something broke into our daily routine. The 



influenza wave had reached us and our school was converted into a hospital for a 
few weeks. Those of us who were not patients became nurses. During this time 
our hearts were saddened by the death of our much-loved history teacher, Miss 
Virginia May Goolrick. 

It took us sometime to adjust ourselves to books and classes again, but finally 
the daily program was running as smoothly as ever. Mr. Dunaway came to be 
our history teacher and we were inclined to stand in awe of him, as he was a 
Baptist minister, but we would forget our fears sometimes when he attempted to 
"take off the various noted personages of our history. 

The War Drive was the next big thing which engaged our time and efforts. 
This was taken up by the various classes and the Sophomores made a name for 
- -themselves. We shucked corn, blacked shoes, washed windows, swept the halls 
and did everything available to make money. We even donned bloomers and 
middies and put away fifteen tons of coal for Mr. Chandler and Mr. Boulware. 
We felt repair for our labors when the campaign ended and the Sophomores 
scored the highest per member in the two thousand dollars raised by our school. 

February was filled with thrilling basket-ball contests. It would be difficult 
to say who worked the harder, the players or the rooters. We came off victors 
over the freshmen and seniors, but fate seemed against us in the junior-sophomore 
game and we were defeated. However, we had learned to take defeat as fresh- 
men and we consoled ourselves with the fact that even if the juniors did whip us 
there were more sophomores on the varsity team than there were juniors. We 
showed how well we could take defeat by entertaining the junior team royally. 
As another reward for our labors we gained the reputation of having more "pep" 
than any other class in school, and so felt rather proud to be sophomores. 

We watched the last few weeks of the season slip by with mingled feelings 
of. pleasure and regret. We loked forward to becoming long-envied juniors, but 
we were loath to bid our happy high school days good bye. 

Part IV 


HE glad vacation days had passed, September with its golden rod and 
purple asters had arrived and, with real pleasure, we greeted our Alma 

Mater as juniors. We were by this time so attached to the Normal and 
those connected with it that we felt we were returning to our homes instead 
of to boarding-school. It had been but a few weeks since our departure in June 
and yet what" a number of changes had taken place. Mr. Chandler, our much- 
beloved Dean, had become our honored President. Our Social Director was Miss 
Anna P. Starke, whom we soon grew to admire and esteem ; Mrs. Ruff was her 
assistant and she became a mother to us all ; Mrs. Myers succeeded Mrs. Carter 
as housekeeper, and the question that most concerned us about the change was 
whether Mrs. Myers would give us ice cream two, or three, times a week. One 
of the familiar faces which was missing was that of John, the cook — and most 
of all we missed his hot rolls for supper. After a few weeks, however, much to 
our joy, John returned. 



The days of classification were soon over and it seemed difficult for us to 
realize that we were juniors instead of plain sophomores. Our number had 
swelled to eighty-two, and we gladly welcomed the new ones into our circle. 
Virginia Farinholt. who was to become our artist and president of student gov- 
ernment, and Clara, our future senior president, were among the new arrivals. 
There were a great many new faces among - the faculty as well as the student 

Our work was quite a change from that of the year before. We felt that 
the greatest honor bestowed upon us as juniors was admission to Room I and 
Psychology under Mr. Tyner. With the dignity becoming members of the junior 
class we settled down to work with Miss Peoples as our interpreter of "Twelve 
Centuries of English Prose and Poetry."' and with Mr. Hamlet to tell us how to 
work everything" by '"graph," even our life's problem ; with Miss Crawford to 
teach us to repeat in order every book in the library ; its classification, particular 
number, author, and any other necessary information. We soon learned that it 
wasn't an easy task to be a junior, and our duties were many and varied. Beside 
our class work we took an active part in the Y. W. C. A. and the work of the 
literary societies. The davs came and went and before we realized it the first 
term had ended. 

We began our second term's work by a division of our group into juniors — 
one, two, three or four, according to the course we preferred. 

The interclass basket-ball games came off in February. We won the junior- 
freshmen and the junior-sophomore, but we were again compelled to acknowledge 
defeat at the hands of the Class of 1920. 

On the twenty-eighth of February we gave the honored seniors a reception 
The auditorium was attractively decorated in the senior colors, purple and gold ; 
the program was varied and interesting; the supper, delicious; and our party was 
pronounced a success. 

This vear the May Queen's throne was in the center of our beautiful campus, 
and we were proud to have one from our number, Esther Weemyss, crowned 
queen of the May. 

The days flew by as if on wings, each one being so full of varied tasks that 
we had little time to think of the approaching vacation. 

On the third of June there was a beautiful wedding solemnized in the audi- 
torium when Miss Lottie Roberts became the bride of Mr. Edwin Cornelius, of 
Mexico. Miss Roberts had endeared herself to us all, so it was with smiles for 
her happiness and tears for her departure that we saw her leave us. 

Four of our members were given the wonderful trip to Blue Ridge, North 
Carolina, to represent our Y. W. C. A. in the conference there. Few days there 
in the land of the sky made us willing to miss the pleasure of commencement, 
which meant more to our class this year than it ever had before, for being juniors 
we shared some of the honors given the seniors. As we watched each senior 
receive her diploma on the last night of commencement, the thought came to us 
that the following year we should take their places — and we wondered if we, as 
pernors, should merit the love and praise everyone gave to them. 


Part V 
We arrived on the Normal Hill, September 15, 1920, with all the honors and 
all the privileges of full-fledged seniors. As we paraded the campus, assisting 
the new girls to their rooms, etc, we tried to look dignified as important seniors 
should, but it was a surprise to most of us to find that "dignity" was not bestowed 
upon us with the name senior. We really felt just about as we did as juniors, 
only we knew a great deal less. As seniors we made one resolution : to so conduct 
ourselves in classes and on the campus that we should never do anything that isn't 
done in "the best of circles." 

We began our first senior duties with fear and trembling. Immediately we 
were sectioned into teaching and non-teaching seniors. The former group battled 
with the endless problems of the Training School and practice teaching in the 
high school classes at the Normal, while the rest of us sought to obtain knowledge 
from such subjects as educational gymnastics, sociology, and the like. A limited 
number of our group were assigned to do practice teaching in the rural school 
at Lee Hill. Martin took this privileged few to their posts of duty each morning 
in the school truck. Practice teaching held its usual thrills, especially when Miss 
Summy or Mr. Tyner were observing, while those of us who were having classes 
did not realize what wonderful beings we were until we had memorized the names 
of every bone, muscle, and blood-vessel in our bodies. 

The all important subject which occupied our time and efforts from Septem- 
ber until June was our Annual. Earl)' in the fall term we established a beauty 
parlor and a shoe-shining shop to help out the financial end of it. Then, later, 
we gave a mock wedding : Miss Llewellyn Belote became the bride of Mr. Clara 
La Crosse; and the runaway couple, Miss Juliet Ware and Mr. Dorothy Sew- 
ard, were united in the bonds of holy matrimony by Rev. Keith Sinclair. 

When the first term of nine weeks was over, the teaching seniors had fallen 
so much in love with their work that they were loath to give up practice teaching 
to take up regular class work. However, the rest of our class had to be given 
a chance to try out the pet methods they had been learning for two years. 

February was filled with some interesting and exciting basket-ball contests. 
Our varsity was a team which our school was proud to possess. Ingram, Wil- 
liam and Mary, George Washington University, and Harrisonburg-, one by one, 
were forced to acknowledge defeat, while our varsity carried off the victory. 

At last the days of separation into groups were over and we, changing from 
teachers back to pupils, were united again in the classroom. 

On the last of March the juniors gave the seniors a royal reception. That 
evening will always stand out in our memory as an especially happy one. 

Those days were busy ones for us, for were they not our last chance to give 
to the school we had grown to love, so clearly the best that we had as students? 
The memorable night of commencement arrived and when we were awarded our 
diplomas we felt that we had gained one round in the ladder of success. And 
so we bid our Alma Mater a fond farewell with the hope that some day in the 
future we might be able to show her just how much she has meant to each of us 
in our happy student days. 



I awoke with a start and, rubbing my eyes, gazed sleepily around the room. 
The fire had died now to a few smouldering embers on the hearth ; the music had 
died away in the distance ; twilight had changed to evening, while I had spent 
a few happy hours dreaming of Alma Mater days. 

Cora Vaughan. 


Ave Atque Vale 

We are bidding good-bye to you, Normal, dear, 'tis a sad farewell we pay ; 
You've taught us "ologies" and theories clear ; the future before us you lay. 
We're only beginning to find ourselves, and how much we'd like to know, 
But now we're leaving - you. Normal School, and whither shall we go? 

We are bidding good-bye to the dear old room, there many a feast we had ; 
All through our lives those days will loom, as about the world we gad ; 
And we'll think of the pals so dear to us, and the ones that loved us so — 
But now we're leaving you. Normal School, and whither shall we g _ o? 

You've allowed us to taste the Pierian Spring — we're thirsty now for more ; 
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, we've learned in English lore. 
You are making us dream, oh Normal, dear, of a future career, and so — 
But now we're leaving you, Normal School, and whither shall we go? 

There are schools of law and schools of art and schools of science, too ; 
There's a school for the subject nearest my heart for me, and one for you. 
Will you help us to choose, oh Normal, dear, the best for which we yearn? 
For now we're leaving you, Normal School, and whither shall we turn? 

You'll be proud to learn some future day of the Class of '21. 
"Oh, Mary has a degree !" you say, "at the University won. 

Clara's a teacher of great renown, best in gym, we know" 

Oh, now we're leaving you, Normal School, pray, whither shall we go? 

To you, dear Faculty, this toast is made (we've provoked you many a time) ; 
But we love you in spite of the pranks we play, and thus to you this rhyme — 
So we are wishing you all that Fortune may hold of health and wealth and love, 
As now we're leaving you, Faculty, dear, will this our gratitude prove? 



To the student body now we turn, with a sister's love for you. 
Many will be the days we'll yearn tor a baseball game or two. 
Then where will the rival Juniors be, and where our Senior team? 
You may be here happy Juniors, but we — where'll be the Senior team? 

Oh, F. S. N., 'tis our last farewell, and the tears have come to our eyes. 
Hark ! was that the sound of the old class bell ? Ah, only a false surmise ! 
Can it really mea» we are leaving for good? Ah, no, it cannot be so! 
But it is, so farewell to you, Normal, dear, 'tis the hand of Fate — we go. 

— Virginia Christian Farinholt.

Practice Teaching Training School 

e~~ ET your hats and coats, girls ! Here comes the truck. Feel my pulse. 
It's going forty miles a minute. I'm scared to death" 
Mlflil This started the first day at the Training School. We walked in 
bravely and viewed the situation calmly. But oh ! When we were asked 
to take charge of that first lesson ! ! It seems as if our critic teachers were un- 
merciful. We plunged into our work determined to win. Once in a while 
one could see a girl going around with a frown on her face and looking very 
much excited and disturbed. She would side up to one of her co-sufferers and 
whisper in her ear and wave her hands frantically, "Mr. Tyner's hat is in the 
office." Result — many criticisms in those little note books so anxiously ex- 
amined by student teachers at the close of the day. Our teaching experiences 
ended with many glad hearts. The excitement at the beginning of the term 
was surpassed only by that at the close : Back to "bones" and "Wordsworth," 
girls ! 

Our First Week's Mode of Travel to Lee Hill 

Monday — Martin and the Reo truck. 

Tuesday — Spring wagon and horse that balked. 

Wednesday — Hired car, and oh ! such luck. 

Thursday — Wrote plans while horse walked. 

Friday — Again in the Reo truck. 

Hope you will never have such luck. Really, girls, it is not as bad as it 
seems ; we rather liked the variation. It is true we wept when we were told to 
go to Lee Hill to teach, but who dares say we did not weep when we left? 
What is this due to? — Critic teachers and pupils? 



We've worked and lived through days for F. S. N., 

Our own beloved Alma Mater. 
The clays all passed too quickly then 

For all the girls of this, our dear old Normal School. 
We have raised our standards high, 
For the best we'll always try. 

So then once more 
Let praises soar 
For F. S. N. alway. 

Our voices raise again in truest praise 

To our dear F. S. N. forever, 
And may we always loyal be 

To all the rites of this, our dear old Normal School. 
We'll bring fame to her dear name 
By all our deeds for school and country. 

So then once more 
Let praises soar 
For F. S. N. alway. 

— Briel-Semple.

The Junior II's for Grammar Grades 

Are learning all the)' can, 

Eleven there are and some are staid, 

And some whose lesson plan 

Will be composed of recipes 

To please the taste of man. 

Of methods they have learned a lot, 

Of subject matter more ; 

And to their psyche selves are brought 

Ideas by the score. 

A dictionary 'neath their arm 

(Vocabulary's poor!) 

They bravely strive and wait and storm 

At education's door.

Junior III 

Perhaps you wonder what that can be — 
I mean such a thing as a Junior "III", 
So I shall try to explain to you 
Why we didn't choose "I" nor yet the "II". 

The Junior "I's" teach the kiddies small, 

Who never have been to school at all, 

But after the first two years are o'er 

These little ones drift to the third grade shore. 

From here to the eighth with might and main, 

The "II's" their wandering minds do train, 

The "I's" and the "II's" blaze the trail for the "Ill's' 

For we teach the high school, if you please. 

When the "I's" and the "II's" their race have run, 

We'll finish the task that thev've begun.

The Class!!! 

Four years ago a wondrous class 
Marched into the Normal High; 

A class whose equal ne'er was seen, 
At least, beneath the sky. 

And though their laurels and their deeds 

Are almost four years old, 
So much there is this class to tell, 

"The half has not been told." 

From start to finish, first to last, 

The class did all excel. 
There never was another class 

Could do all things so well. 

As Freshmen, they were leaders; 

As Sophs, they held full sway; 
As Juniors, why, they ruled the school; 

As Seniors, who can say? 

Could the school have lived without them ? 

For each from his Freshman year 
Has a glowing personal record, 

It would do you good to hear. 

In classes, oh, such diligence! 

Ne'er a tardy one was seen! 
They never missed the Glee Club ; 

They were there at eight-fifteen. 

All their glory in athletics 
Many a volume would it fill, 

From the shouting of their victories 
You can hear the echoes still. 

In basket-ball and baseball, 

Our girls won every game; 
We're out to win the cup, that's all, 

"The Juniors," that's the name. 

So here's to the '22 Seniors, 

As they into school history pass, 

And here's to their many, many followers, 
May they have as wonderful a class.

Advice to Seniors 

June roses will soon be blooming and the time for graduation is very 
near. This is quite the same as saying the Seniors will be leaving us. But 
before they go out from their Alma Mater, we, the Juniors, would give them 
a bit of advice, for, you see, we have showed our superiority in basket-ball, 
very much to their disgust, and as superior beings, we would offer these 
rules and advices, some of which are well-known quotations from the 

"Don't bob your locks and wear French heels." — Tyner. 

"Don't dwell." — Hamlet. 

"Don't fail to i - ead between the lines." — Peoples. 

"Don't forget that you are Seniors and not kindergartners." — Wil- 

"Don't do anything that isn't done in the best of circles." — Starke. 

"Don't forget to see rhythm and harmony in art." — Mathias. 

Hints Heard Around the Campus 

If you find yourself getting into the habit of being late for breakfast 
try the satisfactory plan of our Student Government, which is, "communi- 
cation with nature fifteen minutes before sunrise." 

Regard all class-skipping pupils with the eyes of a pedagogue and not 
those of the 1921 skipping Seniors. 

Don't forget that the grass is as tender on your school grounds as the 
grass at F. S. N. S., and, therefore, inspire your pupils to refrain from 
carelessly tramping on its feelings. 

Remember that "Weeden" the school garden is a splendid way to kill 
time in nature study classes. 

If you would have your pupils in after years rise up and call you 
blessed, never shirk the responsibility of teaching the name and location 
of each bone in the body, so that when they come to F. S. N. S. their fellow- 
sufferers in Hygiene will be made green with jealousy at their knowledge 
of the subject. 

Never take life so seriously that you will not be able at all times to 
have your "little joke on the side." 


To ivltss Anna r. Starke, wko, tkrougk ker kind Interest and 
wise counsel, kas kelped lis to reack tke goal fov wkick we 
kawe striven. Ske will ever be kindly remembered by tke 
Sopkomore Glass of 1921.

The Class Ramble 

■■■■mil *■■ ^ we look out on our campus this glorious day we see that spring has at 

l|jlXj last found our hill. Yesterday we found a robin's nest with four blue 
flSULp eggs, warm and beautiful in the sunlight, that filtered through the new 
ffifUll ma P' e leaves. It brought us the sudden realization that June is on the 

raipmnqpn wav . Before the robins fly, we thought, we shall go down the hill and 
away, each to a different place and each with a heart full of happiest memories. 
So many, indeed, that we may forget some precious one, and that we might not 
forget so. easily, this little corner in the Annual is given us. It is so small that 
it is hard to find just the best things to write and even harder to say it in the 
right way. But we shall try to write those things which are dearest to all and you, 
dear reader, must know that we are not writing this as a composition for criti- 
cism, it is only a peg on which the Sophomores may hang their memory. 

To remember Flementine, our President, we need no peg, but we like to 
have always the picture of her as she worked among us, trying so hard to make 
our class what it is at last. How could we forget Mary Wene's run, Harriet's 
laugh, Allene's music or the class spirit of Nannie and Ethel. 

To mention English class, will be to call up memories of Anna, who, while 
we were studying Thanatopsis, said : "I am going to be famous so I can have my 
body put in a museum." Page also has contributed to the class jokes by saying 
that the milky way is where the cow jumped over the moon and spilt all her milk. 
We all laughed over these things, but the longest laughers, as always, were 
Broache, McGeorge, Murray and Mothershead. When these gigglers had been 
silent for fully five minutes, Kitty Washington began, having seen through the 
joke at last. 

Whether we shall remember our French verbs is doubtful, but we shall never 
forget how Hollins, Moss, Jenkins and Barrack have starred, or how Delia and 
Jones have bluffed. Mile. Miller, although very quiet elsewhere, is at her best 

Do you know the yearly production of wheat in France? Then ask any 
Sophomore: she will remember the day that Fisher and Carpbell read that para- 
graph for Dr. Young. Any Sophomore knows that, but for difficult questions 
you will do well to ask Chandler, Jordan or Lewis, who sat on the front row all 
the year 'round. 

The athletic idols of our class, we must remember, are Henshaw, Thompson, 
Hudson and Davis. In floor work, Moore and Bobbit surpassed all. 

All Sophomores know the difference between the top of Mattie's head and 
the top of Bland's, just the matter of a few feet ; Hutchinson will tell you. 

Quinn and Simpson kept us up with Parisian styles, while Dudley and Sibley 
displayed the latest in America. Who says a 1921 girl knows nothing about 
cooking? Well, we can show you some Sophomores who do: Retinoids, Winfree, 
Hughes and French — every one are A+ cooks. 

The artists of the class are Doswell and Godman; with a bit of pink and a 
bit of white they could produce startling effects. 

Beside cooks and artists we have a "perfect lady," which some say is a curi- 
osity these days; just look at Lorna. Our class has some quiet girls, too; they 
are also hard to find. In this list come Graves, Brenaman and Northam, with 
Cosby at the head. 



Richards, Blick and Omohundro would like for the Sophomore Class to be co- 
educational, but we love it best as it is. We have mentioned every Sophomore 
except Dessie, and not knowing just what to call her, except a good, all-around 
girl, we place her at the end. ' ■ 

:Now, that we have driven pegs into this little corner of the Annual for 
every Sophomore, we would drive a few on which the memories of our faculty 
may hang. 

Mile. Schnirel will never be forgotten nor confused with any other one of the 
Faculty. Amethyst and dull gold satin gowns will always bring us memories of 
her as she strolled about the campus at tea time. We could look at satin and 
amethyst a month and they would never make us think of one, to whom we owe 
our good posture. But a white blouse with a gray plaid skirt, sensibly cut and 
scrupulously clean, would remind us immediately of Miss Hicks. 

Black lace dinner gowns bring us the picture of Miss Davis, to whom we 
owe our knowledge of Hot e Economics. Probably the opposite of a lace dinner 
gown is a blue sweater and a red skirt, and probably the opposite of cooking is 
music, but we will place next the peg of Miss Williams adorned with a psyche knot. 

At the sound of a "Yankee" voice and the swish of a harem skirt, we live 
over the days in the art department and whenever we wish a model of dignity, we 
picture Miss Starke before our history class. 

A lecture on the "Follies of the Modern Girl" would transfer us at once into 
the Chemistry Laboratory, where we may hear again the voice of Mr. Hamlet, 
as he expresses the thoughts of the older generation. An especially polite young 
gentleman, which we will all probably see in the vacation days, will remind us 
of Mr. Cook, who was the voice of Miss Starke. 

"Pep" in any form of sport wili bring us memories of the "Before game lec- 
tures," by Dr. Young. Those of us who will spend hours bending over fashion 
books, longing to be fatter or thinner, taller or shorter, will turn away despairingly, 
murmuring the same words which passed our lips so often when we saw Miss 
Peoples on her way to town, "Oh, if my clothes would only look like that !" Be- 
fore we finish driving pegs for the faculty, we must find room to drive a little one 
for Miss Burney, who helped us so much in looking up tiresome references in 
the library. Her peg is just a tiny one, holding a scrap of mouse brown taffeta. 

Now that we have finished placing the pegs, most of them badly, perhaps, all 
of them hurriedly, we close with an apology for all mistakes. They are not the 
faults of our instructors, for they have surely clone their part, but we guess it is 
because spring on the hill is so lovely that our eyes and minds leave the books, to 
see and think of other things. Vacation time is very near, June roses are bud- 
ding and every morning finds them nearer opened. One night when they are 
in full bloom, they will see the Sophomores trip by, each in her crisp, white organ- 
die, each holding a bit of white paper which is very dear to each of them. The 
roses will bow as each white figure flits by in the dusk — perhaps a night wind, 
perhaps a nod of approval.

And we shout with a vim, for we surely will win, 
When our class team puts up the score. 
Yea! Yea! 

We're just thirty strong, but we'll plod, plod along, 
For the fame of the gold and the blue ; 

And now help them along with a cheer and a song 
For our good team so brave, staunch and true.

TUDENT government at the Fredericksburg State Normal School has 
proven a great success. As administered at this institution, the students 
are given as large control over their own affairs as they are willing 
to assume and prove themselves capable of handling efficiently. All 
matters of discipline are disposed of by a joint council of student gov- 
ernment officers and faculty, and the details of home management are entrusted 
to the student government association. The association interprets the view- 
points of the students and secures a consideration of these viewpoints in the 
council. The association stands for a high sense of honor and does not tolerate 
cheating on tests or any other acts of impropriety on the part of students. 

The student government plan involves self-government, is essentially demo- 
cratic in its ideals and in practice, provides valuable training for students in the 
basic principles of citizenship and government, gives poise and self-confidence 
and training for high types of leadership. It teaches respect for the rights of 
others and, therefore, respect for law and order. 

This institution attributes the success of the association here largely to the 
high personnel of the student government officials and the sympathetic co-opera- 
tion of the administration and faculty. The association was organized in 1914. 
The officers have served in turn with great fidelity. They may have differed 
in relative ability and adaptability to the work entrusted to them, but it is believed 
that all have devoted their best thought and energies to the high tasks assumed. 

The administration wishes to record publicly its high appreciation of the 
valuable services of all the officials of the student government association during 
the seven years of its life at this institution, including the splendid young ladies 
of the staff of 1920-21. 

The 1921 Battlefield would be incomplete, therefore, without this brief 
word of appreciation by the administration of the value of the student govern- 
ment association to the institution. Long live the association, and may it grow in 
efficiency and in power and continue to function at the Fredericksburg Normal 
in all aspects of student life, making continually larger contributions to the devel- 
opment and happiness of the students. 

A. B. Chandler, Jr., President.

HE purpose of the association shall be to unite the women of this insti- 
tution in loyalty to Jesus Christ, to lead them to accept Him as their 
personal Savior ; to build them up in the knowledge of Christ, especially 
through Bible study and Christian service, that their character and con- 
_ duct may be consonant with their belief. It shall thus associate them 
with the students of the world for the advancement of the kingdom of God. It 
shall further seek to enlist their devotion to the Christian church and to the re- 
ligious work of the institution." 

The new officers were installed April 15, 1920, and we began our year's 
work with the above as our purpose. The committees were soon organized and 
our big cabinet selected to carry out the work of the various departments of the 
association. ■ 

In June, a delegation of four girls represented our association at the South- 
ern Student Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina, where we gained valuable 
training to help us in our work. 

The girls of the Little Cabinet arrived early on the first day of school to 
welcome the new girls. 

We began our work with an enrollment of two hundred and forty girls. 
The Bible study committee organized three Bible classes in the Fall, and 
with the beginning of the Spring term the World-fellowship Committee conducted 
mission study groups each Sunday afternoon. 

To help the school as well as the financial side of the association, we took 
charge of five tables in the dining-room. Thus we were able to enlarge greatly 
our budget and every girl was given opportunity to have a definite part in the 
work of the association. 

Our undergraduate representative, with her committee, arranged special 
programs on better citizenship. One of the most interesting- and instructive was 
the mock political campaign and election. Later in the year their committee 
organized a high school club for the purpose of working out certain problems 
of the younger girls. 

The social service committee enlisted the help and interest of the girls in 
teaching Sunday school classes at the mission center, in visiting the hospital 
?nd charity school, and in sending flowers to our sick girls. 

During February, Dr. Ryland Knight, of Nashville, Tennessee, spent a few- 
days with us and gave a series of iectures on fundamental questions. 

The social committee, just before the Christmas holidays, gave an historical 
pageant dealing with the life of the Pilgrims, from the time they left the shores 
of England until their hopes of freedom were realized in the new world. 

All committees have worked faithfully and efficiently and it is through the 
help of each member of our association that we feel we are able to say that our 
work has been a success. The spiritual atmosphere of the school has been deep- 
ened, and the lives of the girls have been broadend by contact with the Young 
Women's Christian Association. May the Blue Triangle always stand in the life 
of the students of our school as the symbol of a threefold development — body, 
mind, and spirit.

Athletic Association 

S we entered this Normal School in the fall of 1920. we realized that 
there were considerable good things in store for us ; but little did we 
anticipate experiencing the most successful year of the Athletic Asso- 
ciation in the history of Fredericksburg State Normal School. This 
unusual epoch was made possible by the great number of talented ath- 
letes who, by some fate or other, came to this school ; by the untiring efforts and 
splendid direction of our most able instructor, and by the wonderful school spirit 
of the student body. 

First came the season of baseball ; teams were selected from each class and 
interclass games were played, till the Juniors proved the best players and came 
out with the championship. 

Next came the season of basket-ball, the most exciting of all. Games between 
classes were played until the decision of the Varsity team — the team which made 
us all proud ! The season started off with a game with Ingram ; in the manner 
we won over this team we won over William and Mars', George Washington 
University and Harrisonburg; both at home and abroad, losing only once, to Har- 

The school spirit has been ideal, the cheering, the cheer leader and the officers 
of the Athletic Association would have done credit to any school or college. Not 
only has the spirit been high among the students, but the town people have been 
extremely interested and every game the "Gym" has been filled with Fred- 
ericksburg citizens. 

At the time of this writing, evidence points toward an interesting tennis 
season, and probably interclass swimming contests. Preparations are being made 
for May Day and other field sports. 

We may say in closing "that the school on the hill having" acquired this excel- 
lent spirit and won a name for herself, still hopes for more glorious attainments 
in the future."

Just watch our girls, so strong and active, 

Support the blue and the green. 

We know our forwards and guards are stronger ; 

With winning hopes we fear defeat no longer. 

Just watch our team pile up the score, girls ! 

Determined now to win or die; 

So give a "Ho-Kee! Ho-Kee! Ho-Kee! Y-E-S!

IHE Hiking- Club originated one Saturday afternoon in the fall of 1919. 
The announcement was read in the dining room and thirty girls en- 
jj§§§ joyed a trip to Alum Springs. Short hikes continued on following Sat- 
urdays. So g'reat was the enthusiasm that a meeting was held, a con- 
stitution was drawn up, officers were elected and the hiking club became an 
official organization. To stimulate interest provision was made for the 
awarding of letters to girls whose hiking satisfied the established standards 
of distance and time. Four groups were formed — A, B, C and D — classifying 
the members according to their respective attainments. Hikes were arranged 
to fit the endurance of the various groups. Besides the daily hike and the 
long hike on Saturday the club has taken several week-end hikes averaging 
twenty miles on the trip. 

From the standpoint of pure enjoyment and enthusiasm the Hiking Club 
ranks first among organizations on the campus.

The Hallowe'en Party 

Q" ' ERHAPS you don't believe in ghosts and goblins; however, if you had 
been with us on last Hallowe'en you would 'have been convinced that 
l hey really existed. 

At the sound of the supper bell we all rushed into the dining-room 
in full costume. It was evident that the goblins and witches had visited unusual 
places and left in every nook and corner autumn leaves, pumpkins, apples, yellow 
paper and black cats, just as Santa Claus leaves dolls, horns and candy at Christ-' 
mas time. In their haste to escape the happy mob of school girls, the wee goblins 
failed to turn on the electric lights ; however, we were not in utter darkness, for' 
a tiny candle by some magic was left on every table. The goblins not only cast 
their magic wand over the dining hall, but even the zoo orchestra was inspired 
to render delightful music, while the rest of us received the unusual inspiration 
to EAT. 

Suddenly a mysterious voice cried : "Follow the leader." It was a ghostly 
leader in a white robe and with glassy eyes who by the light of a red torch, di- 
rected our trip to the unknown. 

Our first stop was with the Sophomores, in a very dark and spooky room. 
Hanging from the ceiling and walls were large, black spiders and hollow-eyed 
skulls. In the center of the room two old witches sat under a tent, stirring our 
fortunes in a huge, old, black, iron pot. As we passed by, our future was revealed ■ 
to us on a slip of paper. In every corner skeletons were rattling their bones and 
making woeful noises. 

The Juniors entertained us in a room so dark that we could see nothing,' 
As we entered several witches escorted us through a .long tunnel. Just as we 
crawled under, some one grabbed us with ice-cold hands and something cold came 
trickling down our backs. The moaning and groaning of people who were being 
murdered and the rattling of the chains of the devil added to the wierdness of the 

We escaped this frightful place unharmed, hoping that the Seniors had some- 
thing better in store for us. However, we knew not what was to come. We 
were led, one at a time, down a long, black flight of steps, by witches in tall hats 
and black robes. At the foot of the steps two red devils with pitchforks in hand 
took charge of us and showed us through the jaws of death that led into Hades. 
What was it like? O hell isn't such a bad place after all. There was music and 
dancing in a beautiful forest, with a wise old owl looking down upon us from his 
nest in a dead tree. The full moon was laughing on the happy crowd that stood 
around a bright witch's fire. 

As the hour aprpoached midnight, ghosts — not imaginary, but real ghosts — 
appeared at the ball and announced that they were actually at .one time members 
of the faculty at F. S. N. S. Could we believe it? Not until they stood before 
St. Peter and srave their credentials. 

One Hundred and Thirty-. 


Friends, students, plebeians and neophytes, hear ye the words which the 
ghosts of the faculty speak unto you. Heed, incline thine ears, for yea, verily, 
they have passed through the jaws of death. Who would not fear them, for 
they are altogether wise and their doctrines pedagogical and educational. By 
their wisdom and learning did they endeavor to incline our hearts toward wis- 
dom. From the amplitude of their profound knowledge did they inveigle the half 
wits in our midst into the subtle mysteries of pedagogical euphuisms. 

Yea ! they hurl pedagogical theories into the air and encourage us to bombard 
them with high-sounding preambles of nothingness. 

Behold, they have seen a new mystery ; they who have passed through the 
jaws of death. They have witnessed the fire and brimstone and with conscious- 
smitten and contrite hearts have returned unto us again. 

Hear what the spirits sayeth unto the students : "Vanity of vanities, saith 
the teacher. Vanity of vanities — behold, all is vanity. What profit have we for 
all our studionsness under the sun? All the burning of midnight oil? The mathe- 
matics and science to which we applied our humble minds increaseth not knowl- 
edge, but is vanity. 

"For the birds, buds and beasts which we chased wildly over hill and dale 
there was no profit under the sun. The muscular movement for which we 
arduously labored waxed not helpful in the time of trouble. 

"Again, there was a time when our labor was in history and French. This 
also was vanity and a great evil. We said in our hearts, we will incline our 
hearts to the study of administration and projects. 

"This, too, was unrighteous and equity was not there. We administered and 
exhorted with all long suffering the youth of the town in the temple of learning. 

"Even this portion of our learning failed. Behold all was vanity and vex- 
ation of spirit and there was no profit under the sun. 

"Hear ye, then, the wise words which the spirits speak unto you. Yea ! 
we have all passed through the jaws of death ; this night will our judgment be 
required of us." 

St. Peter stepped back, the ghosts passed by him each one making his 
plea. St. Peter listened attentively and recorded judgments in his book. 

I am the ghost of a Williams named Beth; 

I pitched, and I charged, I was quite out of breath. 

I chased the poor girls with my pitch pipe in hand ; 

Made them all sing and all join the band. 

They gave poor lessons — at them I frowned, 

Vowed and declared I'd have them all drowned, 

In spite of the fact I was docile and meek, 

I sang all my scales, then died with a shriek. 

One Hundred and Thirty-seven 


I am the ghost of Carrie Belle Vaughan; 
I smiled with my dimple, beginning at dawn; 
I slept out of doors to get the fresh air, 
So managed to keep my complexion quite fair. 
I spent all my life teaching girls to tell tales- 
A task which was harder than driving ten nails, 
But do what I might, or do what I dare, 
I finally died of chronic despair. 

I am the ghost of sweet Eula A. 

A second Maud Muller, for I raked the hay, 

For bugs and for beetles through forest did roam, 

And with earth worms and toad frogs I felt quite at home.. 

The girls I took scouting for bird, leaf and bud, 

The better the field trip the greater the mud. 

Over hill, dale and valley till quite out of breath, 

I finally departed of natural death. 

I am the ghost of Carol Marie; 
I taught the girls to make cream of puree; 
My costume was neat, my smile was so sweet, 
Quite glibly I told them all what to eat. 
I came from Michigan with blankets and shawl 
To keep out the cold of the bleak, chilly fall, 
A comfortable fireside I sought far and wide, 
At last stiff with cold of exposure I died. 

I am the ghost of Ida E. Schnirel, 

Who kept all the girls in a social whirl; 

With manner elite and voice debonnaire, 

I fell in a rage when they mentioned my hair; 

And often when in a delectable mood 

I even rejected the dining-hall food. 

I spent all my salary on vases and chairs. 

I died to get rid of Normal School cai-es. 

I am the ghost of Miss Gertrude White; 
I made the girls all learn how to write; 
With every one's woes was an apt sympathizer, 
Fulfilling the role of religious adviser. 
With all the good traits of a minister's daughter, 
Who spurned to do what she "hadn't oughter." 
To all the mean folks my sweet council did give, 
But died because I was too good to live. 

One Hundred and Thirty-eight 


I am the ghost of A. B. C, 
As Normal School president none beat me; 
From my skill in driving by Buick ear, 
To my ardent love of a good cigar, 
I was the goat of all complaints; 
Enough to try the patience of saints; 
While others would their lot beguile, 
I passed on with a nod and a smile. 

I am the ghost of Hardy Irene, 

The fairest young dancer the Normal had seen; 

With hammer and anvil and manual arts 

I soon captured the faculty hearts. 

All this I acquired at the honorable Pratt; 

It ends all discussion when I mention that. 

With gardens and moods and suppers and scouting, 

How happy I was when I could die shouting. 

I am the ghost of Sir Bunyan Y. Tyner, 

Of all our wise faculty not one was benigner. 

I lived in a house on the side of the hill; 

I played I was Jack — I sure had my Jill. 

Demure law and order I tried to preserve, 

When out of a job I could always observe, 

With my lofty ideals my thoughts and my height. 

I soon rose beyond them, 

Passed out of their sight. 

The ghost of Margaret Mathias am 1; 

As I passed up the walk they all breathed a sigh; 

Whether Greek, Jew or Wop, they could not decide, 

For I all attempts to conversion defied. 

I made such queer noises and queerer remarks; 

Enticed all the girls in devious larks. 

To faculty minds anxious thought I did give, 

And died because I was too wicked to live. 

I am the ghost of Mary Jane Hicks; 

I taught the girls their Highland Fling kicks; 

With my smile and my frown and my avoirdupois, 

I showed them all Swedish movements so coy. 

I issued commands with pep and with dash; 

At poor, dumb, slow seniors my eyes I did flash 

You may think what you please, but some folks they say 

I worked and I jerked till I wasted away. 

One Hundred and Thirty-nine 


I am the ghost of Mistress Starke; 

I made the girls all toe the mark; 

With placid air and manner . quiet, 

I put the brakes on every riot, j 

For social graces and convention, 

The bourgeoisie my condescension; 

Their shrieks and pranks my wits benumbed, 

Of social frenzy I succumbed. 

I am the ghost of Charlotte P., 

In height of all fashion, remember, that's me. 

My wardrobe was ample in green, pink and gold; 

With color in plenty, none could be too bold. 

I taught my dear students good poetry by reams, 

Not to make mention of correcting themes. 

I nurtured my feelings with pals and grilled steak; 

May all forbear judgment — at least, for my sake. 

I am a ghost of a Tanner named Grace — 

You all hold the memory of my pretty face. 

I taught girls to sew by method and rule, 

And loathed and despised that vile training school. 

With the tilt of my chin and my nose in the air, 

I could get order with one stoney stare, 

But now I am blest on the, dim, distant shore,. 

And shall not return to bother you more. 

I am the ghost of dear Dr. Young, 

From my fertile brain great projects have sprung. 

You can't name a subject that I could not teach; 

As a by-product, I also could prea,ch. 

I dashed about with a scowl and a threat 

And lost my good temper, I often regret. 

Alas ! I grew tired of my pranks and my tricks, 

So with wife and with children steered my bark down the Styx. 

I am the ghost of a Burney named Vick, 

At the Normal School library I was a brick; 

And tried to make students all read with less notice. 

My day, it was long — my task a great strain. 

In hot, close confinement, I was forced to remain 

Until I departed to the Land of the Blest, 

And now I am sure I'll have plenty of rest. 

One Hundred and Forty 


The ghost of Mr. Hamlet I am; 

At mathematics I was no sham, 

But I'd a heap rather fish for perches and snipe, 

Or call in the aid of my faithful old pipe. 

In long midnight hours I programs did make, 

And from the faculty all I did take. 

Then off in despair I seized line and hook, 

And calmly succumbed in the arms of my Cook. 

Each ghost, having made his last and solemn plea, vanished to its new 
Ellysian Fields assigned by St. Peter. Chains ceased rattling and on with the 
dance, until Miss Starke called time.

One hundred and fifty 

T "The Rose Bowl Inn" a number of us who were attending the State 
Teachers' Association in Richmond, found ourselves laughing and chat- 
tering as we partook of our Thanksgiving dinner. 

A most tempting menu had been arranged, and while we ate, many 
interesting experiences were related and discussed. Our minds con- 
stantly wandered back to F. S. N. S. where all of us had spent so many happy 

During the hour the good wishes of our president, Grace Tanner, who was 
unable to be present, were received by telegram and were read by Mr, Chandler. 
We were fortunate in having with us several other members of our faculty. 

We, as members of the association, were drawn closer to one another after 
renewing our friendship and when we parted it was with the hope that all would 
meet again "on the Hill" in June of 1921. 

Many of our alumnae left the teaching profession during the recent war and 
undertook various types of "war work" in the different branches of the service. 
We wish that we could hear about the experiences of each one. All of us will 
be interested in the following brief sketch of the great work which Marjorie 
Piker, president of the Class of 1915, did for America and the world. 

On October the sixth, 1918, Marjorie sailed from New York for Liverpool. 
From there she went to Paris, where she was assigned to Langres, near Chaumont, 
on the Marne. For nearly a year she did canteen work with the "Y" there and in 
two small towns nearby, after which she returned to Paris, where she was sta- 
tioned for three months. 

After the departure of our troops from Paris she was sent to Coblenz, Ger- 
many, with the Army of Occupation, where her work kept her for four months. 

In April, of 1920, she took up her canteen work in Antwerp, Belgium, which 
is the base port for the Army of Occupation. She stayed there until the following 
December, when she sailed for home. 

One hundred and fifty- 

Marjorie says : "It was a wonderful experience and I wouldn't take any- 
thing in the world for having had the opportunity to go." 

We are very proud of this alumna. 

If you look in The Battlefield of 1917 you will find it said of Margaret 
White that when anything was to be written her schoolmates put it up to her. 
Although she was usually busy, many of the rhymes and school songs were fur- 
nished by her ready pen. So when the Household Arts Department was asked 
to send a graduate to the meeting of the Home Economic Section of the State 
Teachers' Association in November, Margaret was asked to present the "greet- 
ings" of this school. 

She found time, as usual, to do the extra thing and left her work at the As- 
sembling Training School in Richmond and sang this little song : 

I will sing to you a greeting from a Normal School so dear; 

It is from my Alma Mater, not so -very far from here. 

And I'm sure you know it's Fredericksburg which I'm referring to — 

The finest school in all the land, and you will think so, too. 

Oh, you will think so, too; yes, you will think so, too, 

When I tell you of her wonders I am sure you'll think so, too. 

She has the finest Prexy — A. B. Chandler is his name. 

Of course, you think your Prexy best, but I still think the same. 

And her faculty is wonderful — the very best I've seen; 

From the corps of Teaching Seniors, up to our smiling Dean. 

Yes, up to our smiling Dean; up to our smiling ean; 

From our corps of Teaching Seniors, up to our smiling Dean. 

And, of course, our Course of Study is a wonder to behold; 

It covers every need, you know, and is worth its weight in gold. 

But the x>art I want to tell you of is the grandest part, you see : 

It's the Home Economics Department, ah, that's where I like to be ! 

Yes, that's where I like to be; that's where I like to be — 

In the Home Economics Department, that's where I like to be. 

Of Seniors there are twenty and of Juniors twenty-five; 
Besides eight who are electing — just one hundred twenty-five. 
And Miss Davis and Miss Turner teach them how to sew and cook. 
Oh, the dainties which you feast upon are made by Farmer's Book. 
Yes, they're made by Farmer's Book, by Fanny Farmer's Book; 
The dainties which you feast upon are made by Farmer's Book. 

Of course, I never like to brag or boast of anything, 
But sometimes I can't help it, so this little song I sing, 
Just to bring to you a greeting from my Alma Mater fine, 
And I hope that all your Normals are modelled after mine, 
But my dear old Alma Mater is always first in line. 
But my dear old Alma Mater is always first in line.
