Oh, say, can you see, by the datvn's early light.
What so proudly we hail'd at the tivilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we ivatch'd.
Were so gallantly streaming?
And the rochets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag ivas still there.
Oh, say does that Star Spangled Banner yet %vave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep.
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes.
What is that tvhich the breeze, o'er the towering steep.
As it fitfully bloivs, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, noiv shines on the stream :
" 'Tis the Star -Spangled Banner: Oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
And where is that band ivho so vauntingly swore.
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country shoidd leave us no more?
Their blood has tvashed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave,
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave :
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
Oh, thus be it ever ivhen freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and wild ivar's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the poiv'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, ivhen our cause it is just
And this be our motto : "In God is our trust!"
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

houj the Legend Comer Tmej
NE WINTER day in the year of 1812, four people sat
in a little liiit, by which Napoleon, his star sunken
beyond the horizon, was soon to pass on his ill-fated
journey to Sloseow. Tliese four people were Ivan
Ivanovitch, Marinka, his vn£e, their son, Boris, and
Marinka's old mother, who, was reputed to be a witch.
Ivan, gnarled and old-looking, though in the
prime of life, stood wai-ming his hands at the flicker-
ing, smoking fire. His wife was working at her spin-
ning wheel, while Boris sat cross-legged at the feet of
Finally the father broke the long silence by saying, "The Little Father
(meaning the Czar) will use his last moujik for Russia; but, as the Corsiean
is able to call his dead soldiers to aid him, there is no use killing them."
"Yes," gently answered Marinka, "Yes, the Czar will have to say fare-
well to Moscow and the Kremlin, though ten thousand troops were there to
aid him. ' '
"True," said Ivan, "soon we shall all be French. Until tomorrow, then
farewell." So saying, he lay down upon the dirty, musty straw in the corner
of the room which served as a common bed. Marinka soon followed the ex-
ample of her literal lord and master.
Boris had not spoken, but as soon as he heard the groans from his father,
and the loud indrawn breath of his mother, he turned to the silent old
"They snore," said he scornfully. "It is well. Tell me now, grandmother,
about the wonderfid Napoleon who is coming across the couiitiy."
"Boris," replied the grandmother, "when this Corsiean leads his troops
to battle, ma.vhap, he returns victorious, but many men have been left upon
the field, dead or dying. The next battle, he does not have as many soldiers.
He wants them all, so he gives a quick call, and back come the soldiers, who
have perished in previous battles. They fight for him, and after the battle is
over, they are seen no more."
"And can he do this forever?"
"Nay. Once he shows pity for someone or something, he loses his power
and his command."
"Grandmother," said Boris thoughtfully, "they tell me I am fair of face,
s>ad thou as well as I, know that I am strong of limb. Aye, and thou art so
old and decrepit that thou need'st the support of others. Think you, grand-
mother, that if we set the house on fire, if I killed myself, with a deep red
scar down my breast, and if thou stood 'st wailing over me, that we could move
him to pity."
"Aye, and any human would, but he has the devil in him. And I love
thee so, I could not bear to lose thee, though all Russia were at stake."
"But, grandmother, Russia is at stake, and you and I can easily save
her. And, thou art so old, and near the end of thy days, that it would be
an easy matter for thee to kill thyself afterwards. Even if he should not
pity, we would be rid of a father who beats us and a master who starves us. If
thou will 'st not, I will. ' '
"0 ! Boris, child of my child, thou art more to me than life itself, my only
joy, for if thou should 'st perish, then would the light of my life be indeed
gone. So, if thou will'st do it, I will be with thee,*' slowlj- answered the old
woman, with tears rolling down her withered cheeks, for, although a serf, she
had many beautiful memories.
Before dawn the next morning, great crowds of people pressed past the
humble dwelling of Ivan Ivanovitch. Many called to him that the dreaded
Corsican was coming. So Ivan and Marinka joined the throng, thinking that
Boris and the grandmother had merely been pushed aside by the crowd, and
would later join them in Firnsky, the fortified town for which they were
At about noon, only a few stragglers remained on the road, bearing with
them, all the portable effects of their homes.
About dusk, the figures of soldiers could be dimly discerned through the
gathering twilight. Accordingly Boris snatched a brand from the fire and
held it to the flimsy wooden walls of the house.
Then, as the far-famed white horse of the Emperor came into view, he
opened his blouse, gave a long slash at his heart, and fell fainting, yes dying
at the feet of his grandmother.
The famous Napoleon now rode into plain view. He looked in astonish-
ment at the not unfamiliar spectacle of a burning house, but his eyes moist-
ened as he beheld in front of the glazing shack, a fair boy with a deep red
gash down his breast, and an old woman loudly lamenting.
"I pity thee' woman," came from the lips of Napoleon, as he rode
slowly past. The boy gave one triumphant sigh, and was dead, dying hap-
pily, for he had saved Russia.
VAIR, HAUNTING, baffling, nymph you trifling
Desired by all you deign to love a few.
From far I hear your voice, I strain to hear it ;
But still again you leave me seeking you.
To some you bring of thoughts a golden store.
Fair stifling these with lavish overflow;
To me you bring desire and nothing more,
Except perhaps a whisper sweet and low,
That spurs me on to greater efl'orts.
Then you dart away with mocking swiftness
Mayhap to try your tricks on other men,
I pray, be kind to them in their bereftness !
Ah well! your shyness breeds appreciation
In hearts of men, you Goddess Inspiration !

HAVE ALWAYS spent my summer at a girl's camp in
Maine, and I'd like to know how a girl could have
romantic experiences when the only man we ever saw
was Old Jerry, who rowed over to camp twice a week
with supplies and the mail. He is cross-eyed and
Other years it didn't matter. But when I got
back to school last fall, all was different. The girls
unpacked at once, bringing out numerous pictures of
men and telling the most interesting things that had
happened during the summer. I began to think that
something was lacking in my vacation. That hateful Laura Maples had at
least six large sized pictures and the most exciting experiences of all the
girls. I tried to steer the conversation back into old channels of swimming
and basketball, but I wasn't successful; so for three days I kept quiet while
the other girls talked. Then, led on by the eat, Laura, they began to question
me. Hadn't I anything to tell them? I evaded their inquiries for a while, but
soon they began to nod to each other and whisper. I knew I must speak or
lose my place as leader to Laura, who had always been jealous of me. So I
I was on pretty shaky ground and I knew it, so I used Dick Gordon's
name to banish all shadow of doubt. Dick is the Yale football hero, whom we
admired — all last year, although we had never seen him. Louise Ferguson's
cousin, who also was at Yale, used to write to her all about him and she always
read us the letters.
Now I ought to have known better than aim so high — but I knew it would
bowl them over — and bowl them over it did. They fairly gasped at me, green
with envy. From that time, if Laura would begin to brag — I immediately
silenced her by casually mentioning where Dick and I did this or that.
All went on calmly until just after Thanksgiving, when the blow fell.
I was curled up on the window seat reading a book, when Laura came run-
ning into the room. I glanced up, wishing to convey to her intelligence that
she had intruded, when her words struck a chill to my very marrow, banish-
ing all peace and calm.
"Oh Betty," she cried, "Mrs. Jameson has just called me up and invited
me to a week-end house party at her country home. Jack and Dick Gordon
are going to be there, and she told me to bring you along, by all means, as
you and Dick were such good friends. I told her about your delightful sum-
mer with Dick. She is waiting to speak to you."
Speechless, I got to my feet, and started down to the telephone. What
should I do ? If I declined, Laura would of course talk to Dick, and find out
that he liad never even lieard of me. That would be too much of an advantage
to give my rival, for I knew that no time would be lost in spreading the news
abroad at school. But on the other hand — if I accepted, it would be under
false pretenses and I should be doubly enibarassed if exposed before my hostess
No, the only thing to do, was to go and bluff it out.
All the time I was murmuring pleased words of acceptance — I was pray-
ing for relief. I might just as well lie down and die, I thought.
I will omit the following two days except to say that thej' were most
painful. I lost at least five pounds and an additional worry was added to my
already crushing load. My clothes were now too large. 1 told Katherine
Turner about my clothes and she offered me her entire wardrobe.
On Friday evening we arrived at the junction and were met by ilrs.
Jameson. Lucidly for me, the boys had not yet returned from a trip to the
village. My hour of exposure was at least postponed and my heart grew a
little lighter. On the drive home Laura chattered so incessantly that my silence
was not bothered. On our arrival at the house we were shown our rooms to
rest before dinner when we were to meet the other guests. In desperation,
I began to pace up and down the room. Going to the window, I saw a trellis
upon which was a vine, now bare of leaves. I quickly climbed down to the
ground, and hiu'ried in the direction of the wood, which I had noticed on
our way to the house. There I sat down in a protected little hollow ; shut my
eyes and tried to think. But my mind worked in a circle. A pebble fell into
my lap and looking up, I saw a pleasant-faced boy, with the friendliest brown
eyes filled with astonishment, probably, at seeing at the bottom of a gully a
girl, sitting with her face buried in her hands.
' ' Hello ! What 's up ? Not lost are you ? " he questioned. I felt myself
groxving hot all over. Provoked at having blushed before a mere country boy,
I answered with all the dignity I could muster: "No, I'm quite all right,
By this time, not at all repulsed by this dignity, he had climbed down, and
was standing beside me.
"Really you know," he said, "that was an awful dejected attitude I found
you in just now. "What's the trouble? Can't I help you?"
I opened my lips to utter an indignant refusal, when his frank smile in-
spired my confidence and I found myself detailing my predicament to him ;
"It's all because of my miserable pride," I ended, "Now he'll openly de-
clare that he never saw me before, and I'll be disgraced for life."
"Oh, come now, it's not so bad as all that," he tried to reassure me. "It
will come out all right."
He laughed lightlj' as if he enjoyed it as a huge joke. Astonished at the
levity with which he had treated my confidence, I scrambled to my feet and
started off paying no attention to his, "Oh, I say, don't hurry off like that."
"Country clod," I muttered to myself. I was more determined than ever
not to fail. Then an idea struck me. I'd hurry back and find Dick Gordon,
whatever he looked like, and tell him all about it before the others came down.
But what if he should have no more understanding than the boy in the woods ?
Glancing at my watch, I saw that it was now too late for this plan. The others
would be downstairs, and here I was not even dressed.
Somehow I reached my room and quickly put on Katherine's pink taffeta
dress. I went to the door, opened it and stepped out, then closed it softly.
At the top of the stairs, I paused, trembling. What should I do when I got
downstairs? Suddenly I heard Laura's laugh. How the sound grated on my
ears! Throwing back my head, I descended the stairs with the same feeling
the French nobility must have felt when walking to the guillotine.
Mrs. Jameson met me at the foot of the stairs and led me to the group of
guests, murmuring introductions: "Miss Marlowe, Miss Linden, Mr. Calvin,
Mr. Harrison and of course, dear, you know Dick."
At that both of my hands were seized and I heard a masculine voice utter-
ing a most cordial "I should say she does know Dick.''
Dazed, I glanced up and saw standing before me, my acquaintance of the
wood. A sudden rush of understanding came to me. "You", I burst forth.
"At your service," he said, smiling down at me.
LOUDS SCURRY fast across the sky
And silent dusk all unawares
Creeps close upon the heels of day
And for the night prepares.
The wind slips back into the sky
And leaves the earth in waning light-
Then faint and few the stars appear
Meek heralds of the night.
Then in this hour of restfulness
Pause, busy World, in sweet content
And let your soul, tired from its toil,
In calm of dusk be blent.
TO A STUDENT of history no truth seems more impressive than
the fact that every great wave of progress, in any nation or country
has been preceeded by one of uncertainty, of unrest, and often-times
of war. Yet out of the chaos of war, out of the darkness of distrust
and doubt, have come periods in which the light of a new civilization has re-
vealed truth more fully and has shown the way to a richer and higher life.
Out of the French Revolution, with all of its cruelty and bloodshed, was
inaugurated a force that is leading more and more to the emancipation of all
nations. It is true that at first it brought oppression, and immediate re-
sults, which for a time, made it seem as if the horrors of the Revolution had
been in vain. But as time passed on, there was gradually spread over Europe
the soil of Revolutionary France and from that time to this, the watchword of
the Revolution, "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity," has been gradually per
meating the atmosphere of continental Europe. Event after event has shown its
potent influence, until today, the French Revolution stands justified in the
light of its results.
Today the nations of the world are again involved in a maelstrom of war,
a war so widespread, so awful in its destruction that we can scarcely
realize that it can be the expression of civilization of the twentieth century.
Yet it may be that through this war, horrible though it is, there may come to
us and other peoples, the regenerating forces of new ideals, and it may become
the prelude of a liberty, wide and vital. In the seeming chaos of the world
today there are indications that we are standing on the threshold of a new
era. Even now the master mind is beginning to reveal through the tangled
threads of events the suggestive beginnings of a new order, an order of in-
creased understanding and of broader and deeper sympathy.
In his "Tale of Two Cities" Dickens gives a wonderfully realistic descrip-
tion of Europe prior to the terrific upheaval of the French Revolution. The
same description might be used in characterizing the world today. "It is the
best of times, and the worst of times, it is an age of wisdom, it is an age of
foolishness, it is a season of light, it is a season of darkness, it is the spring of
hope, it is the winter of despair, we have everything before us, we have noth-
ing before us," in short, we can describe this age in the superlative degree
The question naturally arises, what will be the logical outcome of such
conditions? In considering the answer to this important question, we should
never forget, that in this war or in this chaotic condition of affairs, are in
volved constitutional crises, that out of it many new problems will come up
for solution and many others that have appeared earlier, will have gathered
force and urgency that will demand many changes and a new order along
many lines. The new era which is bound to grow out of this crisis in world
history will see a complete revolution in many social, religious and economic
conditions. I do not mean to say that all the results of this war must be good,
far from it. The inunediate material effects cannot be other than disastrous. The
death of millions of the strongest and best cannot possibly improve the living
stock ; the heavy war debts which the nations have heaped up, will necessitate
the placing of a heavy tax upon the lower class of people; the devastations
which tliis war has wrought, means a shortage of the food supply. Many
of the immediate effects will unquestionably be most deplorable.
As in Cicero's time, when the conspiracy of Catiline threatened the life
of the state, the equites and senatorial or aristocratic parties joined forces
to protect their fatherland, so in Germany and other warring nations today,
we see the different classes of men forgetting their religions, social and po-
litical differences, and joining forces to save their country. This unity, en-
forced by a tremendous common danger, will have great results. Results
that will express a greater industrial life, a more widespread prosperity, and
a greater vitality among all classes of people.
Again the devastation which this war has brought will unquestionably
strengthen the arguments and policies of peace for the future. As the weeks,
months and years of war have passed, men and women have seen with the
bitterness of heartbreaking experiences, homes bereft of loved ones, and nations
drained of their best blood. It is such vital experiences as these that make us
realize the real evil of war and the meaning and value of peace.
When the smoke or the battle has cleared awaj' and the nobler motives
of men assert themselves in victory, it will be found in many lands and in many
institutions, that "the old order has changed and given place to the new."
When the daj's of war are over there will dawn a better day. Irian's vision
will be clearer, his sympathy broader, and his grasp upon the vital things of
life stronger and firmer. Precious blood will not have been shed in vain if the
world is a better place and man is nobler. There will be a newer vision and
instead of policies that through selfishness and false patriotism, through in-
ternational jealousies and short sightedness fail to realize and utilize the pe-
culiar advantages of each country, there will be wider and more altruistic
policies which will bring about more healthful conditions socially, economic-
ally and politically.
Now, as in the eleventh century, the century of the Crusades, we are in an
age of intense excitement, an excitement which has seized equally upon those
who stay and those who go into the turmoil of this terrible war. It is a time
when all men are being stirred with deep enthusiasm, and all ranks of society
are being profoundly moved. The ferment of unrest and dissatisfaction with
existent conditions which long before tlie war was threatening to make itself
felt in many countries, has today broken through the hard crust of Russian
aristocracy and cruelty and is threatening Prussian military despotism.
Slowly but surely through the years of the past the people have been gaining
influence and today voices heretofore silent are beginning to make themselves
heard, and new forces that have been silently and slowly gathering strength
are beginning to be felt in the new era that will dawn on this night of war.
Not the few, but the many, will be the effective forces of the future, and
a universal democracy, "By the people, for the people, and of the people," will
be more of a reality than ever before.

STARTED to make the world over,
To cast out the evil and wrong,
The load of the weak to make lighter,
Every heart-cry to change into song.
I started to lead to the kingdom.
The weary who knew not the way.
To tear down the false and misleading.
To bring into dawn a new day.
"And when thou hast entered thy closet,"
I found meant to shut every door
Of my life, to the world and its clamor,
To still the loud waves and pass o'er.
Then out of the silence came wisdom.
The stillness spoke plainer than words.
"Cast from thy o'wn life all evil,''
These words of true wisdom I heard.
I forgave the whole world of unkindness.
No malice nor envy I held;
And breathed out a song on the heart-cry,
My heart from the false I compelled.
The weak I released from his burden,

And behold I had made the world over,
The Kingdom had come to endure.

HELEN ANN DANNETTELLE
I DINED today with Sir Kenneth who told me a strange storj% said
Mark Burr, and noting our interested expressions, he removed his pipe
"Several years ago a diamond was found in the blue mud of a river in
India, absolutely perfect and almost two inches in circumference. The native
who found it, mad with joy, placed his treasure in the hands of his king.
Murmuring: "Even the daughter of Daik" (daughter of the Sun) he died.
It happened that the unlucky man was celebrating the annual feast of
Zelma, the lion. Evening came on and in the lurid light of the many torches a
slave girl danced on the village common before the throne of the king. On her
forehead she wore the Daughter of Daik as a sign of His ^lajesty's favor.
From the edge of the jungle a tiger watched the scene. She was starving and
advanced slowly. Suddenly the attention of the people was diverted from the
dancer. Drawn by the burning eyes of the beast, they screamed in terror.
The slave girl, with her back toward the invader, interpreted the cry as ap-
plause, played with the dagger and danced on. As the tiger sprang toward
her, she tore the jewel from her brow and threw it at the foot of the throne.
The next instant she was borne screaming into the jungle.
Now the Indian king himself began to wear the diamond, three days after
placing the jewel about his neck he was found treacherously killed on his
throne. His son, the j'oung prince, left India immediately to place the case
of the king's mysterious death before the court of England, taking with him the
Daughter of Daik. Sir Kenneth was a passenger on the same ship and on the
voyage became an intimate friend of the young Hindoo. One day the prince in
reply to a question of Sir Kenneth concerning the wonderful diamond which
he now wore, told the historj' of the stone.
When the steamer was some distance out from Liverpool the doctor called
Sir Kenneth to the bedside of the Hindoo. The prince was dying and nerv-
ously pressed the beautiful jewel into Sir Kenneth's hand.
It was wonderful to possess such a stone, yet Sir Kenneth felt a strange
repulsion toward it. Three hours later when the Hindoo was buried at sunrise,
Sir Kenneth leaned over the rail and tossed the gleaming thing into the waters
of the Atlantic.

CLARA LOUISE BRADY
AKJORY BLANCHARD and her room-mate,
Elizabeth Alexander were each buried in a
couch full of cushions in the opposite ends
of their room. They were looking, with
muffled laughter now and then at a
shower of valentines that had just arrived.
Suddenly Marjory jumped up and ran
over to Elizabeth. "Oh 'Libby'," she ex-
claimed, "Kent's coming up to spend the
week-end tonight. I am so glad that he'll
be here for the party ! ' ' and she held up an
elaborate valentine she had just opened. On
it had been hurriedly written in a bold
boyish hand a message which the girls read with great difficulty.
"I'll be up from Boston, Friday night to spend the week-end. Meet me
at the station."
Elizabeth picked up the envelope and examined it. The address was
also very difficult to read.
MISS M. BLANCHARD,
That night ^Marjory was at the train in time to see it arrive. She peered
anxiously around but saw no one leave the train except a tall young man,
whom she knew at once was not her brother.
As she stood looking anxiously through the depot, the young man speedily
approached her and in the dim light she saw him wave in her direction.
Seeing no one in front of her she turned to see at whom he could be waving.
When, suddenly, some one from behind her clasped his hands over her eyes.
She tried to pull away but could not free herself from that tight clasp.
"It's Kent," she said. "Let go Kent, you're hurting my eyes terribly."
At this the hands were quickly removed. Marjory turned to see the tall
young man, looking very confused indeed and taking off his hat. They stood
there speechless for a minute, both looking into each other's eyes in confusion.
"Oh! I beg your pardon," said the young man. "I thought you were
The situation seemed so utterly ridiculous that Marjory blushed and
burst into a musical laugh as she exclaimed, "And I thought you were my
Then they agreed that it was a mutual joke and Marjory gladly ex-
cused him his faux pas as they settled themselves comfortably in a taxi.
"I wonder why my brother didn't come?" she said. "He wrote that he
would be here tonight on this train."
"Well I can't imagine why Marian hasn't come down to meet me," he
said. ' ' Do you know my sister Marian Blanchard ? ' '
"Blanehard! "Why that's my name, too. No, I don't know her. What
year is she?"
"I'm not surprised that you don't know her," he said. "She's only a
Freshman. Started in the first of the year. I told her in a valentine that I'd
be here tonight and asked her to meet me."
Marjory looked at him in perplexity. "May I ask you what your first
name is?" she said suddenly.
"It's just as I thought," she exclaimed excitedly. "I got your sister's
valentine from you. It Avas addressed to Miss M. Blanchard and was delivered
to me. My name is Marjoiy Blanchard. Well, if that isn't strange- I
thought since it was signed "K," that it was from my brother Kent."
They were so amused over the complex situation that they did not notice
how near they were to the college until the taxi stopped. "Are you coming
down for dinner?" she asked gayly as she stepped out and shook hands with
He looked into her brown eyes and with a note of decision in his voice
said, "Yes I will. I guess it's not worth while going in to see ]\Iarian before
I come to dinner, as it is such a short time till then. With an "I hope I'll see
you at the party," Marjory started toward the college. She looked back as
the taxi drove out, and saw Kenneth looking at her through the back window.
How attractive she looked standing there in her little spring hat and suit!
She was thinking how handsome and jolly he was as she hurriedly entered the
college, for it was almost dusk.
That night when Kenneth met his sister just before dinner, she expressed
her surprise that she had not heard from him.
"Why didn't you write Ken?'' she said. "I had no idea you were
"What! Didn't you hear from me? That's funny. I sent you a valen-
tine saying that I would be up tonight to spend the week-end." he said with
a twinkle in his eye.
"It must have been delayed or lost in the mail," she returned.
Marjory confided to her room-mate the strange adventure and conver-
sation of the afternoon, making her promise not to tell anyone, as she did
not want to be made fun of.
That night she met Kenneth at the reception and danced with him sev-
eral times. What a graceful pair they were ! Many eyes were turned toward
them in admiration through the evening.
There was an almost strange confidence between them. He told her of his
struggles in studying law, and she told him of her ambition to graduate in
June. The evening passed very merrily and finally after the departure of the
many guests the weary girls trudged off to bed.
Through the remainder of the year Marjory and Marian were almost in-
separable and together they enjoyed Kenneth's frequent visits to Wellesley.
Lake Waban and dear old Tapelo contributed their full share towards the
ripening of their friendship.
June came and Marjory graduated in full glory and beauty at twenty-one.
She was the pride of her class and among the many bouquets she found one
of white roses witli "Heartiest Congratulations from Kenneth" ^vritten on
a simple little card.
The first year out of college was sincerely and earnestly engaged in set-
tlement work. One day after a number of hours of hard work she found on
her return home a letter — from Kenneth and we will look right over her
shoulder and read with her, as she reads again and again.
"The time is up now and I am coming if you say the word. Is it a go?
All my work has been done with the hope that you would let me come and
share my success, whatever it might be, with you. It has been my thought
since I learned to know and love you, as I did the first few days of our ac-
quaintance. (Thanks to that adorable valentine). Today when I saw my name
added as junior partner to the finest law firm in our city, I thought of you and
felt more willing and proud to offer you that name."
And as Marjory switched oft' the light for bed, supremely happy, she took
from her dressing table a little ivory box and advancing to the window where
the moonlight would fall on it, she opened it, and there, carefully preserved,
as it would always be, lay the precious valentine.
To ODoria Lisa
LADY of the mysterious smile
Of taunting look and witching eye,
My precious moments you beguile
As all too swift the moments fly!
Indeed your dangerous fascination,
Hints of mystery and romance.
Shatter my determination,
I close my book and look askance.
Alas! my stiidy hour is over
My mind is in a misty haze
Clouded not with studies sober
But with the mystery of your gaze.
HE CENTERVILLE Select Circle of Civic Sages is in
session in the back of Bill Willson's general store.
They meet to discuss news, spit, spin long-winded
yarns, joke and then spit again. Soap boxes and
broken relics of chairs, grouped around the big stove,
are seats of honor. Champions of all the issues of the
day are present. Jake Byerly, of close acquaintance
with swinging doors, bars and steins, who relates
lengthy tales of encounters with lamp-posts, enor-
mous reptiles and prehistoric animals, begins an earn-
"Feller citizens of Centerville, and other islands on the bosom of this
United States, this Liquor Law 11 be the roonation of me and many other fair
citizens. But ye '11 all suffer with me; ye '11 see the error of your ways and
flee from the wrath to come. When corn is thirty cents per bushel, ye '11
suffer too, by gosh!"
Hank Bingley, town marshal, is the only one who draws a topic from
this, so, carefully spitting in the general direction of the spitoon, he begins:
"Bill, when you're sober, you're nutty, and when you're drunk you're
crazy, so keep your trap shet. This liquor business '11 never bother you as long
as there's spirits aroun'. I wuz in a dry state onet, and say, that state wuz
dry! They must have had Stuce Brewart sittin' on the lid. When the sports
went into the next state to get their bitters, they wuz so dry they had to
be soaked over night before they'd hold any liquor. Thet's the kind of a
lid we're going to have in old Indiany when she goes dry, by Heck!"
"Wall, boys, my wife never lets me go out with the gang any more,
'cepting here to the store," says Jim Blake, a reno^vned henpecked hiLsband,
sadly. "The Liquor Law don't bother me. But this Suffrage Law just gags
me. I tell ye I got a ^vife at home thet's bad 'nuff 'thout any votin'."
"Cheer up, Jim!" saj-s Bill Willson. "Women won't be so anxious to
vote if they force all the rights uv votes on 'em. Won't it be purty to see
some of them women as orter be men an' isn't, going out to pay poll tax
an' work the roads.? He! He! He!"
This brings a general laugh and recollection of Jim Blake's former de-
clarations of independence, all proven null and void because of the vote of
one mightier than himself.
Hank Bingley manages to get choked on stolen crackers and goes out to
get a drink. While gone, a tack with guaranteed point is placed in his chair,
to verify the guarantee, Old Man Boomer "lows as how they wuz good signs
for an early spring,'' but Hank, returning, disagrees. He "lows as how signs
\\'uz deceivin'," and "they wuz shore to be a frost." He turns his chair over
and the tack falls out. "Now who cud a been so cruel?" he asks, and con-
tinues, "but say, the H. C. of L. would a' looked like an ant-hill beside the
lofty heights to which somebody 'd a been hoisted ef I'd a hit thet tack.*'
"Man don't make a miss and kick that H. C. of L. any higher than it is.
It means empty stimimicks. I 'd fight most anything to keep mine from bein '
empty. ' '
"Speakin' uv fightin'," drawls Ned Durham, "them Germans is gettin'
a little too dern smart fer me. I'm willin' any day, if somebody '11 only give
me a gun an' pay my fare, to go over there an' shoot the Kaiser's ears off
an' show 'em to him just to show 'um thet a gentleman fnun Missouri won't
stand for no sich doin's. To thunder with pacificists! Let the sissies and
fraidcats stay home and let MEN fight. One must say, as Farragut said, 'Dam
the torpedoes, go ahead!' "
Bill brealcs in, "Boys this spy question is a bad one. They're every-
where. Why, maybe old Fritz there is one! What say, Fritz?"
"I say dot I bin kein schpy. I bin only poor 'Merican citizen. Schtill
you says I bin Cherman schpy. Vy der odder day I go make for mine lettuce
bett some scharecrow mit colored cloth sparrows away to drife, und vot do I
hear? I haf put up der Cherman flag. I no understan' Dann I see und I
laff like I vud schplit yet. Mein scharecrow! Vy dey don't know veder der
Cherman flag is red-vite-und-plack oder schky-plue-pink.' '
Just then little Bill Willson Number Six comes in with the news that
America has declared war on Germany. Great enthusiasm arises and the sages
break up their meeting and rush to the telegraph office for later reports.

EGINNIXG WITH civilization and the dawn of culture,
the struggle in one form or another has been for the
individual ; for a breaking away from the idea of ' ' the
masses." This age is marking the triumphant cul-
mination of the period of unrest. The individual is
coming into his o^vvn.
There has always been given to everyone the abil-
ity to do some one thing better than his neighbor
could do it and now, the opportunity for using the
ability is being given. To the pupils of Shields High
School this opportunity is given in the publication of "The Patriot,'' a book
which seeks originality. While it is pre-eminently the book of the school as
a whole, yet is gives broad individual scope to the student with literary aspira-
tions or artistic longings. In this respect "The Patriot," is indeed a living,
growing part of the "individualistic" movement.
This past year, so impregnated with new and vital forces, so notable a
one in history, this year of unprecedented war and chaos, has marked the
beginning, growth and advent of "The Patriot" of the class of '17. The
name, "The Patriot," seems especially suggestive this year. Christened in
a year of national trouble, the Spanish-American war, it has come down all the
years to be re-animated today with the present significance of this greater
If the joy derived from the book will serve to keep alive our loyalty to
Shields High School and will serve the greater purpose of continually making
manifest our wider patriotism, then, indeed, it will not have been sent forth
To everyone who has been considerate of the welfare of the book, we
are most grateful. Especially do we wish to thank the business men who have
responded so generously.

KATE F. ANDREWS
IN THE days when, as children, you entered the portals of school
In that far away time, you felt that into your lives
With the eager young gladness that comes with the new and untried ;
Had come a turn, a branching of paths from the road
You had trodden before, over which your steps had been led
And the way pointed out, as love held your interests at heart.
So, again, there has come a break in the routine of years;
Again, you have come to the parting of ways, to the day
When each, relying on what he has done in the past
On the strength secured through effort expended and victories won
In struggles to master the Hard that now and will always
Beset the path of the one who would climb to the higher
And higher achievement in life and win for himself
The highest and best that a life nobly lived can yield,
JIust answer the call and give to the world and to God
Not the work that another should do but the work that is his.
The Past has recorded your effort; each year has taken
Its toll to be kept as insurance for future years.
As a fund from which each shall draw as his need directs.
In those years, may you always remember the truth that you chose
As your motto to guide you aright in questions of life ;
If you, in the time to come, would gather from life
The best of rewards, the best that it offers to man,
Then to life you must give the best that there is in you.
As yon oak with its roots deep-planted stands firm and erect,
May you, too, be strong in the power to do, to achieve.
May the growth, which the green of your colors expresses so well.
Make fuller and richer each year as the days swiftly pass ;
While the white, symbolic of truth, spreads over your paths
A light that will brighten each way and make each one feel
God's love and God's grace in the beauty and joy of this world.

Of servile opportunity to gold."
(El^t Agrtmltur? i^partm^nt
IN THE fall of 1917 agriculture, as a vocational subject, was introduced
in the Shields High School. The work is organized under the direct siip-
ervision of the state and of Purdue University. Its aim is to give special
training in agriculture and it is designed especially to meet the needs of boys
interested in farming.
The course is in charge of A. E. Murphy, a graduate of the agriculture de-
partment of Purdue University, and a practical farmer as well as teacher. He
is in charge of the work the entire year. The course includes many of the
following subjects of study: soil study, agriculture botany, animal husbandry,
poultry raising, live stock feeding, seed selection, fertilizers, care of fruit trees,
gardening, nursery work, farm accounting, farm mechanics, dairying, etc.
The students in this course give each afternoon session of the tenn to agri-
culture and allied subjects. The forenoon sessions are given to other studies
selected from the regular high school course. Students doing full work in
agriculture receive two regular high school credits each semester, and one for
Any person who has completed the eighth grade may enter the course.
Young people may enter without taking any other work in high school, if so
The course is as practical as it can be made, and it is the hope of the de-
partment to secure and keep in Shields School as many farm boys as possible.
THIS YEAR a comparatively new phase of work along oratorical lines
has been developed in the high school. Heretofore work of this type
has been confined chiefly to class debates and school contests. Upon
the request of Washington high school, which has had quite a bit of such
work, it was decided to enter a triangular debate with that city and Bedford.
The decision was supported by universal enthusiasm on the part of Seymour
and while she did not vvin in the debate, she is optimistic in regard to her
future chances. The subject discussed was: "Resolved that Congress was
justified in passing the Literacy Test over the President's veto." Seymour's
negative team was sent to Washington, JMarch .30, while Bedford's negative
met Seymour's affirmative at Seymour.
FOR SEVERAL years Indiana has been trying
to stimulate and strengthen oratory in the
high schools. To arouse enthusiasm among the
students, the schools meet each other in ora-
torical contests. The local meets determine the
school's representative to the county meet. From
that the winner is sent to the contest held in his
congressional district. The district winner is sent to
the state meet at Bloomington. The subject is al
ways one of civic impoi'tance pertaining to the
present needs. The high schools of the state chose
for their subject this year the question of "Com-
pulsory Military Training." The Jackson County
preliminary was held at Seymour early in April.
Veva Paul was selected to represent the county at Versailles, April 6. Other
counties represented were Switzerland, Bartholomew, Dearborn, Jeft'ei-son and
S>. E Jl. % ». A.
THE SOUTH Eastern Indiana High School Association draws its mem-
bership from Franklin, North Vernon, Seymour, Madison, Aurora and
La^\Tenceburg. For several years the Association has held contests in
Orator3' and Beading. Each school in the Association holds its preliminarj'
and selects representatives for both the Oratory and Reading. The same per-
son may enter both contests. The contestant is free to choose his own subject
matter, the only requirement being that his oration be original. This year the
contest was held at North Vernon April 20th. The six schools in the Associa-
tion were represented by two contestants each.
The Shields High School was ably represented
by Fae Patrick. The subject of his oration was
"Prophecies of War."
Robert Keach won second place for Seymour in
the reading contest. His selection was "George
Says Boys Don't Have Such a Snap After All."
ANOTHER OF our splendid organizations is the High School Orchestra
now consisting of seventeen members organized in the spring of 1914
under the efficient leadership of Miss Gasaway. It has grown steadily
and has been genuinely appreciated.
The orchestra has been most generous and has added greatly to the suc-
cess of all the High. School home-talent affairs. It has given many special pro-
grams in chapel period. The work has proven a double success in that it i^
a benefit to the members themselves and because it has come to mean so much
to the life of the school as a whole.
The members are :
Comets— FAE PATRICK
Clarinet— CHARLES HEIN
Trombone— HORACE SEELINGER
Saxophone— OSCAR SHEPARD
Piano— LUCILE KESSLER

AND NOW we come to the school warblers, "Tlie Glee Club," which has
gro-(\Ti to be an essential both in the practical and social life of the
school. It was thought advisable to unite the girls and boys Glee
Clubs this year and much effective work has since been accomplished.
Several splendid programs showing a wide range both of classical and
popular miisie have been given and were enthusiastically received by the
student body. The "Glee Club" has in a way dominated the general choruses
of the school and their effective leading has added much to the spirit.
The final achievement of the Glee Club came in the presentation of two
operettas in which the leading roles were taken by Glee Club members. Too,
they helped very materially in the success of the choruses. The necessity of
repeating the perfonnance is ample proof of their worth.
A quartette composed of some of the best male voices are planning to
present a ragtime program at several of the commencement festivities. The
Senior boys will furnish the music for Baccalaureate and the entire Glee Club
is preparing a splendid program for Commencement night.

NOT FROM the time it was first organized until January of 1916 did the
Alumni Association of Shields High School have an organization.
This sounds paradoxical, but is a fact. As far back as the writer
can remember — and alumni historians of other days say it was ever thus —
there had, of course, always been a president, a secretary and a treasurer.
They were elected at the annual meeting of the society by popular vote.
Through it all there was a woeful lack of organization, of a definite pro-
gram, of something tangible to work for. Too often the mistake was made of
electing as president a member of the graduating class, only to have him leave
for college the nest fall. Thus the benefit of even a temporary organization
was lost, and the society drifted along like a ship without a rudder.
This has all changed, however, and the Alumni Association is today an in-
corporated society, with a permanent organization, an excellent constitution,
and a splendid corps of officers. And what is more important than this, it
has a definite aim in view — the upbuilding of an organization that shall have
for its work the development of a greater co-operation between the com-
munity and the school.
As its first step in this program the society has accepted the custody and
management of a scholarship loan fund that has been established to aid girl
graduates of the school in obtaining a college education. It is hoped that
this fund may be increased until it will be of great service to many of our
new members. The idea of the scholarship fund for girls originated with the
Friday Magazine Club, which organization made the original contribution to
the fund, and was conceived shortly after the announcement of the Thomp-
son Memorial Scholarship at Yale for young men graduates of the school.
It is the intention of the present officers to combine the social features
of the society's activities with the more serious work it has undertaken, be-
lieving that both will profit thereby. There is a place — in fact there is a
necessity, for both if the organization is to fill its proper place in our com-
So to this work the officers extend a call to every member, from the oldest
graduate to the members of the class of 1917. With the loyalty and co-oper-
ation of everyone, which they have a right to expect, they will exert every
effort to make the influence of the association felt in eveiy worthy endeavor
in the city.
Reonember, this is YOT'R Alumni Society. It needs YOUR sympathy
and active co-operation if it is to become what you would like to have it.
The following is a communication written at our request, by Mr. John L. Patrick the
edUor.n-cnef of the first Patriot. We take this opportunity of expressing our grati-
tilde for Ins fehcttous message.—TaE Editor. ■> j i- y > yr
AT THE opening of the fall term, in 1898, the idea of a paper to be
called the High School Patriot originated in the keen and kindly mind
of Professor Henry C. Montgomery. He presented the idea to the as-
sembled classes and instructors, setting forth the aims, ideals and limitations
of such a paper. I M^as appointed editor, possibly because of some local re-
porting done by me for one of the Seymour dailies, Miss Anna Hancock
Assistant Principal was made supervising editor. The name was probably in-
spired by the stirring days in which we were living, as it was in April of the
year that marked the beginning of the Spanish-American war.
During the first year there were three printed numbers, one at Thanks
givmg, Washington's Birthday, and Commencement. There were also writ-
ten copies each week, read at Friday afternoon exercises, which were in voaue
those days. The printed numbers were financed through the generositv^ of
the local merchants in advertising. While the Patriot was largelv the work of
the Senior class, it was representative of the entire high school, and was in
no sense a class annual. So much for its eariy history.
In those days, I believe the Patriot enhanced a 'feeling of patriotism to
our school, to all constituted authority, and to our nation. While I am sur-
prised at tliis opportunity of once more contributing a message through its
columns, to the school, the Seniors and the Alumni, I am also greatly pleased
and feel at no loss as to what should be the tenor of my message, though some-
what m doubt as to the words with which to clothe mv thought " It is a
prayer for the reviving and multiplying many fold of those old thrills of pat-
riotism in all of us and a desire that the Patriot may in some way serve as an
aid toward this end. We are living in a much more wonderful time todav
than m 1898. The autocracies of the worid are becoming democracies the
privileges and duties of the classes, viewed woridwide, seem to me to be mul-
tiplied as the grasp of greed and privilege are curtailed. Can we not formu-
late a campai,gn plan to take advantage of them? The simplest method that
occurs to me is a change of wording of that terse strategic plan of Grant's
which was "POUND, POUND, POUND," and for each of us, in so far as pos^
sible, increase our ability to constructively, WOEK, WORK, WORK, out the
problems that confront us, to our satisfaction, to the service of our 'country
and the glory of God.
As an afterthought, only to the extent that we have the abilitv to WORK,
WORK, WORK, out our successes will we be able to receive and enjoy them.

AMONG THE new features of the school work that have been organ-
ized during- the past year is the dramatic work conducted in the Junior
and Senior English classes under the direction of Mr. Arthur J. Beri-
ault, of Indianapolis. In order to give the classes practical experience four
short plays were undertaken.
These included "The County Chaimnan," "Heart's Haven," "Doe Home"
and "Scenes from Riley," all of which were taken from Indiana authors, and
which reflected the general spirit of the Indiana Centennial.
In addition to this special course, the usual entertainments were also
given. Two enjoyable productions, "The Lady from Philadelphia," and
"Mrs. Jarley's Wax Works," were given at the annual Christmas bazaar, and
they were a large factor in the success of the fair.
The final climax of the season was the Senior class play. "The Fortune
Hunter," with Kenneth MeCurdy and Helen Barnes taking the leading roles,
won over its audience by its skillful acting, sharp humor, and the cjuick
action of the plot. It was pronounced one of the best ever given by the school.

THE BASKET BALL team started practice last fall working under sev-
veral difficulties. There were only two players left from last year on
the entire varsity squad. The new material was composed of "^players
who were comparatively small and inexperienced. Yet the team as a whole
was a fighting one, and certainly, no team ever represented the school that
knew more inside basket ball and more tricks of the game.
Tie basket ball team got off to a good start winning six of the eight
games scheduled before Christmas. Immediately after tlie vacation the team
faced the hardest schedule ever undertaken by Seymour High School. Yet
the number of games won and lost was about even. The failure of the team
to make an excellent record was caused by lagging interest, and considerable
difficulty was experienced in keeping the players in physical condition and
in trim to play their best game.
Franklin was the only team to win two games from the home team. An
even break was made with North Vernon, Scottsburg, and Bedford. Two
games were won from Milan and Columbus. The complete record of the
season shows eleven games Avon and eight lost. Total points scored by S. H. S.
592; Opponents— 446.

WITH THE idea of creating; more interest in athletics and also to give
the opportunity to everj'one to obtain exercise and recreation th<
"S"Club iras formed. The formation of such athletic clubs, whiel
places the requirements for membership upon the ability of anj'one to pass cer
tain tests of phj-sical skill and endurance, is also an outgrowth of the convic
tion of man.y that all around physical development is better than highly
specialized athletics. The requirements aim to require some work to attain
them. They are not rigid, but just out of reach of the novice. They aim to
develop all sets of muscles of the body, for there is the dash and the long
run ; the broad jump and the high jiunp ; the shot and throwing baseball.
While only a few are able to participate in varsity athletics, the Club is
open to everj^one, and all are encouraged to try what they can do. In this
way, a boy may discover some special ability he did not suspect he possessed.
If anyone is unable to qualify for Senior standing, he can make Junior. The
schedule of events and requirements are :
1(10 yard dash
220 yard low hurdles
Running high jump
Running broad jump
1 mile run
Seven mile walk
Thro^ving base baU
*12-lb. shot put
12 2-5 seconds
4 feet, 6 inches
7 feet, 9 inches
1 hour, 45 minutes
4 feet, 2 inches
6 minutes, 30 seconds
2 hours, 10 minutes
*This is requirement for a boy of 145 pounds or over, and is scaled down
in the following proportion :
145 lbs.: boy's weight :: 30 ft.: his requirement.
For Junior standing, substitute 25 ft. in above proportion.
BASKET BALL SQUAD
TOP ROW — Harold James, Edrick Cordes, Frederick Brettliaiier, Mansil
Hughes, Charles Craue, Frank TVeller.
BOTTOil ROW — Horace Seeiinger, Tirgil Snow, William Eckstein, Kenneth
McCurdj', Oscar Shepard, Jerome Boyles, John Connelly.
The mosrt experi-
enced and largest
player on the team
"Kenny" is a fight-
er. His playing
shows the result of
three years experi-
ence. He is best in
getting the tip off at
center and placing
Oscar Shepard — "Shep."
"Shep" is a consistent player at
Guard. "Without any previous ex-
perience he has learned a lot of
basket ball and has given some
good exhibitions of breaking up
Horace Seelinger — "Ike Spivins."
"Ike" filled the position of floor
guard. His biggest assets as a
basket ball player were his energy
name, and fighting spirit. Al-
though small, he played his posi-
tion well and always managed to
score several goals.
Jerome Boyles — "Hap."
"Hap" played his second year
on the varsity. He was always
cool and level-headed. Past and a
good basket thrower, he always
succeeded in scoring several points
in his position at forward. ' ' Hap ' '
is next year's captain.
John Connelly — "Johnnie."
"Johnnie" was our sub-for-
ward. His lig-htness and small -
uess prevented him from securing
a regular position. No player on
the team was a harder worker. He
was very fast and a fair goal
Virgil Snow — "Virg."
This was "Virg's" first year as
a varsity player. He filled the po-
sition of forward in a creditable
manner. "Virg" was the most
consistent and cleanest player on
William Eckstein — "Phoenix."
"Phoenix" held down the hard
position of guarding the oppon-
ents' goal. This was his first year
on the team and he should develop
into a star before he finishes his
high school career. "Ex" would
never let an opposing player get
rough with him.
Mansil H. — "Genevieve, you are the breath of my life."
Genevieve — "Then hold your breath."
Mr. Murphy — "Tipton, can you get some land for a garden?
Tipton — "Yes, but there's a boy out there who bothers me all the time."
Joe Andrews — ' ' The book says to spray all pests. ' '
M. R., '17
When the lion eats grass like an ox.
When the fishworm swallows the whale,
AVhen the robins knit woolen sox.
And the hare is outrun by the snail;
When Thomas cats swim through the air.
And elephants roost on trees;
When insects in simimer are rare.
And snuff never makes people sneeze;
When fish creep over dry land,
And mules on bicycles ride ;
When foxes lay eggs in the sand.
And women in dress take no pride;
When ideas grow in a baboon's head.
And treason no longer is crime ;
Then will the '17 class be dead,
And the country not worth a dime.
Miss Remy (in English) — Merrill, what is your comment on "Cranford?"
Merrill — I have nothing to say, only I'm amused the way the ladies do.

— "Well, such is life in small burgs, but you're not in bad as much as me
anyway." — "I got caught traveling last period and stood on the green car-
pet three hours. The chief picked my ticker right, and then said if I did

battle-scarred visages, such as blackened lamps, broken bugles, and twisted
gozzles, on that I murmur 'never more!' " — "I'm nix on the rough stuff also.
See what a dainty complexion I've got." — "Oh say! Have you got a date
for tonight after the .show?" — "No, I'm stagging it for a while. All the
"Frauleins" love me though!" — "Yes, I know that, and also you fall like a
stewed owl for all the new girls beautifully though. — Why gink, you ain't
got nothing on me as a ladies' man. I let them fall for me, take em out to the

I HATE eases,

FIKST THERE are the ones of long standing,
BEGUN IN the sixth grade,
AjX'D continued to the Senior year, drab uninterested cases,
THEY TAKE each other for granted, and would as soon tliink of murder,
AS OF spending a Sunday or Friday night
AWAY FROM the fellow-suft'erer.
THEY SIT for hours in the porch swing, yawn most ostentatiously, and
EACH ONE is thinliing how soon ten o'clock will arrive
BUT NEITHER would give up the other— for worlds.
THEN THERE are the basket ball cases.
WITH HUM a stalwart yoimg center or so.

WHO COPIES every Friday night to see her hero perform,
AND SHRIEKS loud and long when he makes a basket,
OR W^HATEVER it is centers do.
THIS CASE usually ends long about
TOURNEY TlilE, when the team is defeated,
AND A better man than he is appears on the scejie
PROM SOilE nearby luimlet or town.
WORST OF all are the one-sided affairs,
WHEN ONE of the victims falls hard, receiving little or no response
FROM THE other side of the case.
THEY WRITE long and langTiishing notes,
"MY DEAREST, try to like me just a wee bit."
AND THEN, v.-hen the cold heart
RELENTS, THE infatuated one finds that lie or she has ceased to care
WHETHER IT relents or not, and are oft' on a search
FOR OTHER cold hearts to conquer.
I HATE "cases.
