A YEAR  Entered December ai, 1902, at Bellingham, Washington, as
second-class matter, under  act of Congress of March 3, 1879.  Vol. X.
January, 1911 No. 4  The new department established this year under the
care of  Miss Ruth A. Gottlieb, the school nurse, we are pleased to note, 
has proved successful beyond our most sanguine hopes. We are  proud to be
the only Normal School west of the Rockies with such  a department. Miss
Gottlieb gives two hours daily to special work  in the Training School. She
also has office hours in the afternoon  for general consultation with
Normal students. The records to  date show that six hundred and fifty
consultations have been had  with students in need of advice. This includes
one hundred and  fifty-four visits paid to students in their homes. 
Formerly students often remained in their rooms for a day  or so at a time,
too sick to attend classes and not ill enough to  require the care of a
physician. Others, perhaps, were never too

2 THE MESSENGER  ill to attend classes, but needed advice concerning their
physical  state, not realizing their condition. The strain of our regular 
routine proved too much for some. They became discouraged,  homesick and
returned to their homes. Now all this is changed.  Miss Gottlieb, in her
talks with our students can encourage them,  quiet their fears and advise
them how to improve themselves phy­sically.  Miss Gottlieb has
certainly endeared herself to the hearts  of the students. From the very
first, she has made her interest in  us felt, not only concerning our
health, but our frolics and good  times as well. We extend thanks to Miss
Gottlieb for her good,  helpful work in our behalf.  •  Judging from
the first number, our lecture course surely is a  success. And, there's
four more entertainments coming, equally  good in their way. But we can't
continue to enjoy such splendid  artists on the Course without the support
of the students. It's  late, but not too late, to join the crowd of
enthusiastic holders of  Lecture Course tickets. So, get busy, secure your
ticket, and be  one of us.  •  Get interested in the affairs of other
Schools. We have on  our exchange list, papers from the High Schools,
Normals and Col­leges  of our own State and other states. Read them
and find out  what the other schools are doing.  • • • 
Normalites, listen! The Staff cannot do all the work! It  isn't desirable
that it should because The Messenger is the paper  of the whole School. It
can't put out each month an issue of  which to be proud without your
co-operation. We are always  thankful for suggestions but this time we want
your help in a  more material way. Our Messenger should be enlivened with 
poems and good jokes; out Literary Department needs stories;  the Class
Editors want Class news; The Messenger is crying out  for help,—won't
you heed its call?  • • gt; • gt;  RING OUT, WILD BELLS!

rainy, gloomy afternoon, with a  volume of Browning's Poems. I was tired
and lonely, but had to  study for the tomorrow was before me, with its
endless tasks, the  first of which was English IX. "Now," said I,
grumblingly, "I  must get out of this just what I think she will ask us
with as little  effort on my part as possible."  Hardly had I spoken when I
became conscious of a presence  in the room and raised my eyes to see a
woman standing beside
Messenger - 1911 January - Page 4
4 THE MESSENGER  me. She was veiled, and I did not know her; but I could
make  out that she was comely, and from her robes that she was graceful. 
She was, however, an uninvited guest, and I was out of humor  (which, in
common phrase, means cross), so I had determined to  turn away that she
might know that I wished to be left alone,  when a strangely familiar voice
said in a tone I dared not diso­bey  : ''Come with me!"  Mechanically
I arose from my chair, but scarcely had I moved  when I found myself in a
large, spacious, high-ceilinged room and,  from the beautiful pictures
which covered all four walls, guessed  that I was in a picture gallery. 
"Look," said my guide, pointing to a picture, "think you  that is not
beautiful?" And it was beautiful. A picture of the So­man  Campagna at
sunset, with a beautiful, eager-eyed, golden-haired  girl in the
foreground. She seemed to be waiting for some­one.  Underneath the
picture I read these words: "Love Is Best."  The next picture was of a
different type. A policeman was  grasping a monk by the throat, and holding
up a torch close to  his fate. There were four or five of his colleagues
standing near,  so it was not one, but many torches, that this poor monk
had to  face. It seemed to be very late at night,—past midnight, I
should  say, for the narrow alley was dark and deserted. One felt no pity, 
that is, to any great extent, for the monk, however, because of a  certain
twinkle in the eye, the sly droop to the mouth, and I could  imagine his
singing:  "Flower o' the rose,  If I've been merry what matter, who
knows?"; or  "Flower o' the broom,  Take away love and our earth is a
tomb."  I would have lingered at this picture, but my determined  guide
said: "Pass on."  I passed on to a sickening scene. A bare, gray plain 
stretched on and on, even to where the sky and plain seemed to  meet. There
was grass upon it, but such grass! "Thin,  dry blades pricked the mud,
which underneath looked kneaded up  with blood." A stiff and bony horse
stood near, his bones seeming  ready to gap through his skin. I never saw
so horrible a picture  of a beast. One could not be sure whether he was
alive or dead,  but one could be sure that he came there straight from
Hades, be­ing  no longer wanted in that land. A river flowed across
this  plain. We did not know its name,—perhaps it had none;  but had
I been allowed to christen it, it should have  been called "The Spitfire."
In strange contrast was  the noble and valiant knight in the foreground,
who looked as
Messenger - 1911 January - Page 5
THE MESSENGER h  though he would dare anything and suffer everything rather
than  forsake an ideal.  I now began to enjoy myself thoroughly. I thought
these  pictures handsomer than any I had ever seen, and wished my  guide to
know what I thought of them; but since I had been so  uncivil when we first
started out, I felt too embarrased to speak  of it. I did say, though: "How
many, many different pictures  there are here!"  "Yes," she answered, "on
this side wall alone there are fifty  men and women; fifty wonderful
pictures. Look! this one is a  favorite of mine."  The one she referred to
was somewhat larger than the others,  a wonderful work of art. It was an
Oriental scene. A tent, very  dark except for one stray sunbeam, bursting
through the roof,  held two occupants. One was a fair, noble-looking boy,
with gold­en,  curling hair. He might have been compared to the lilies
that  were twined round the strings of his harp, so lovely he looked,  and
so hopeful. You know him, of course. David, it was, young­est  son of
Jesse, and keeper of sheep. You have guessed the v.her  already? The mighty
Saul! There he stood, in the center t the  tent, leaning against the tent
prop with drooping head anc rms  outstretched, the picture of despair and
misery. That I mig ; the  better understand this picture my guide repeated
in a low \ )ice:  "And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was
upon  Saul, that David took an harp and played with his hand; so Saul  was
refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from  him."  This
picture was not appreciated by me as it should have  been, for I could not
refrain from associating it somehow with a  certain argument (familiar to
all students of English IX), that  had to be written on two different
occasions; viz., once as a Class  exercise and again in an examination.  My
guide now lead me to the other side of the gallery. I had  not yet seen all
of the fifty pictures on the one side, but she would  not let me remain
there any longer. We stopped beneath a bal­cony  scene. It represented
two lovers embracing each other,  while at the door, as though she had just
entered, stood a woman  in the robes of a queen. '' That girl met her
doom,'' said my guide,  "because she was too young. She was just at that
age when she  thought she knew more than anyone else. That is, that she
knew  it all."  "Look over there!" I cried with enthusiasm, as I recognized
 the picture I had known from my childhood of "The Pied Piper  of Hamelin."
She, however, just nodded and pointed to a funeral  scene; so, not wishing
to offend her, I looked just where she would
Messenger - 1911 January - Page 6
6 THE MESSENGER  have me look. A number of mourners were carrying a coffin
lo  the top of a high mountain. It seemed to me they were burying  a great
man, and had chosen a mountain top as the most appropri­ate  place.
"Now, what did he do in life," wondered I, and my  conscientious and
pleasing companion seemed to read my thoughts,  for she said:  "He settled
Hoti's business  Properly based Ours and  Gave us the doctrine of the
enclitic De.  AVhile Calculus racked him: and  Tussis attacked him."  When
I wished to pause and gaze upon the fair Evelyn Hope  lying on her bier, my
guide again said: "We have no time for  that; look here! I want you to see
the beautiful colors in this  picture."  It showed a dying bishop, upon his
luxurious bed. He was  talking earnestly to those around his couch, and
seemed to be  much worried about something. I thought him worrying about 
his eternal salvation, but the wonderful guide beside me said:  "No; he is
ordering his tomb and fears that it may not be more  handsome than that of
his old-time enemy and rival.  She then showed me the picture of a
philosopher, reading a  letter and underneath was the word, "Cleon."  Then
she went on to show me another, of a discontented and  weary woman, upon
the deck of a ship. "James Lee's wife," she  said; but I was not much
interested for I did not know  James Lee, and what did I. care about his
wife. She would tell  me the story, however, so I listened patiently to the
sad, sad  story of their unhappy married life. Then she showed me the 
picture of the young and lovely duchess, which told another tale  of an
unhappy marriage.  At this moment a bell sounded, very far off, and my
guide  said, hurriedly: " I must go." I begged her not to leave me, for 
this guide who had been leading me to see and appreciate such  art, was
very pleasing, and she seemed like an old friend of mine.  She said not a
word more, but slipping a book into my hands  she vanished. Again the bell
sounded, this time loud and clear,  and I awoke to find myself lying upon
my couch, clasping the red  and gold book she had given me.  SELIA. 
• • •  SECOND IMPRESSIONS.  Yes, I found, before I had
been here a month, that my first  impressions were as far astray
as—as—my plan for Observation
Messenger - 1911 January - Page 7
THE MESSENGER 7  Class was this morning, if such a thing is possible. It
makes me  smile, even now, to think of some of the fool notions I got into
my  head during the first few days of school.  For instance, I remember
having thought Professor Bply  cranky, just because he didn't care to waste
his time, explaining  to me some simple matter that any idiot should have
known better  than to ask about.  And that reminds me of another impression
I had of Mr.  Eply. In some unaccountable way I got an idea that he was
taller  than the average human being; but when I saw him, the other  day,
look smilingly up into Miss Haddeen's face, when they met  on the campus,
he suddenly fell in my estimation;—that is, he—  oh, you know
what I mean! He look "squatty," like that  short fellow that wears peg-top
trousers and a broad-brimmed hat.  Who? 0, no! Miss Drake's always the
same. She seems  just as pleasant as when I saw her first. Of course, I
would have  been thankful for a better grade in my Practice Teaching; but 
since she never led me to expect it, I can't say that my last
impres­sion  of her is much different from the first. 0, yes it is,
too!  How could I forget those plans so soon ? You know, when I came  here,
I was just fresh from my little first school in the woods and,  of course,
thought the way I did things was just about the only  way worth
considering; so, when she started me to work develop­ing  lessons into
pupils who knew nothing whatever of the subject,  I thought it could not be
done, and I told her so. Well, she smiled  and gave me a little advice, and
a few good books on Method to  read at my leisure, and invited me to come
in and visit a Class,  to see how it was done.  Second impressions? Well, I
should say I did. You've heard  of the development of our mineral resources
at Irondale, haven't  you ? Why, that, or even the development of thievery
among the  Juniors, doesn't compare with the way I've developed G-eeography
 into those little dears, ever since.  And, by the way, I had a second
impression of them, to' At  first I thought they were naughty. I was
mistaken—they 'r ot!  0, no! Those aren't the only ones. All my first
impre ons  were as crooked as a Junior when he smells ice cream. A /, I 
used to think that Browning was obscure,—and that pigs /ere 
dirty,—and that Psychology was uninteresting. I can eveu
re­member  of having thought that the congestion in the halls was 
disorderly; but, of course, it didn't take me long to find my  mistake. 
Arithmetic? No, I can't say that I did. The first time I en­tered  Mr.
Bond's Class, if you please, I decided that Arithmetic  was not such a
stupid subject as I had been led to believe; and
Messenger - 1911 January - Page 8
8 THE MESSENGER  the longer I stay in his class, if you please, the better
I like it.  Yes; here we are,—gossiping again!—and it was only
yes­terday  that we decided to stop!  "What! An hour? I should say
not,—but I'll keep still  for ten minutes if you will.  All right!
It's a bargain!  '11.  • • •  WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.  It
was on an East-bound train that he first saw her.  'Twas a mild afternoon,
on the day before New Year's, and  they were passing through one of the
most beautiful part of the  Cascades. He had been gazing on the sparkling,
snow-covered  scenery, but now he could look out of the car window no
longer,  for opposite she sat.  She was a slender little creature, clad in
a very simple  gown. Her hair was almost black, and was drawn loosely back 
from her brow, and as she glanced at him across the aisle, he  saw that her
eyes were of a deep, dark blue.  His eyes persisted in wandering toward
her, as he studied  the quiet figure he gave rein to his imagination and
thus his  reverie ran: No doubt she lives in a little mountain village and 
teaches school. I can almost see her standing dignified and se­rene 
before a group of children. Perhaps she is an only child;  her mother a
widow, and she her chief support.  His mind then wandered down a shady
village street, and  paused before a small, white cottage; partly hidden by
clinging  ivy, and he imagined himself Mr. Prince Charming, come to woo 
and win this quaint little lassie.  Meanwhile, she had carelessly studied
his pale, grave face,  with his stern mouth, and almost pathetic eyes, and
was likewise  having a reverie: A country preacher without doubt. Perhaps 
going somewhere to preach a New Year's sermon. My, isn't his  coat shiny. I
imagine it is all he can do to keep his wife and  children supplied with
bread and butter. Of course he has a  house full of children,—poor,
country ministers always do. How  hungry he looks. Perhaps he hasn't had a
good square meal  for a long time. How I'd hate to be his wife! Well, see
him  stare! If I were his wife, I shouldn't like him staring at every 
pretty girl he saw; and she dropped her eyes, with a well-feigned  shyness,
and resumed her book, while he felt she was abashed at  having such a
fine-looking young man staring at her, and  dropped his eyes, also.  If she
had only known he was a progressive lawyer, who
Messenger - 1911 January - Page 9
THE MESSENGER D  was noted for his eccentricity in dress; not the poor,
timid, coun­t  ry preacher she had thought him!  If he had only known,
she was not the quaint, retiring, little  miss, and loving, womanly woman
of his reverie, but a noted fig­ure  in the world of vaudeville.  And

received by me and dad,  (I should have said, "by dad and me,"  But 'twould
have spoiled the poetree  And poetree or even rhyme  'S ahead of grammar
every time),  And, though I would not make you vain,  I'm free to say, my
dear Loraine,  We think they're fine, we do, indeed,  And with admiring
interest read:  In truth, your ma, though you may not credit her,  Is proud
of her literary editor.  (Scan not, I pray, these lines with frowning;  I
learned that trick o' trade from Browning).  Now twenty years have passed,
and better,  Since I have penned a rhyming letter:  What long gone days it
calls to mind!  When—fun and frolic unconfined—  With girlish
jokes, with secrets jolly,  With gossip rhymed of Dick or Molly —  I
could go on ad infinitum;  As fast as one could read I'd write 'em.  Well,
I must stop my effervescing,  Must give you my maternal blessing,  Must
thank you for your magazines,  Send greetings to my other weans, 
Then—light the fire and bake the beans.  MA.  • • •

10 THE MESSENGER  BASKET BALL.  On the evening of December eighth, the
first practice game  of the season was played. The Seniors met defeat at
the hands  of the Juniors. Owing to the disablement of several of the
Senior  players the game was very one-sided. The Junior forwards;,  Miss
Franklin and Miss Nickol, showed some excellent team­work  and ability
at making baskets.  The Seniors were working under great difficulties; but
held  their ground in the first half, the score being 9-8 in favor of the 
Seniors.  In the second half the Seniors were unfortunate in having  to
change players, therefore the ball was kept in the Juniors'  territory and
they piled up the score, the result being 40—13 in  favor of the
Juniors.  The line-up:  Seniors— Juniors—  Center  A.

is an  especially good player.  In the first half the score stood
18—3 in favor of the Second  Years. The three baskets made by the
Seniors were from the  foul line.  In the second half the players were
changed and the Second  Years only made two field baskets and one from the
foul line,  while the Seniors made five field baskets.  Although the
Seniors have met defeat at the hands of both  of these teams they still
entertain the greatest hopes of being  one of the try-out teams. As soon as
the teams have been better  organized, the games will be opened to lhe
students.  The lineup:  Seniors— Second Years—  Center  M.

through­out,  and the Normal had them beaten 6 to 5 for the greater
part  of the contest; but during the last few minutes' play the U. P.  S.

lines,  the gym being in use every evening in the week and nearly
ev­ery  afternoon.  The boys are putting out two good teams and have
plenty  of material to pick from for still another. Indeed, there is a
ru­mor  that the boys of the Second Year Class have organized a 
whirlwind team and are hot upon the trail of the Normal High  School team,
fully expecting to beat the Ninth and Tenth grades.  Mr. Bond is athletic
manager and coach and is doing all  that he can to put out a winning team.
He has arranged a  schedule of games with the Y. M. C. A. and the High
School for  city championship and has a number of out-of-town games  ahead
for both Normal teams.  New suits have been purchased for the first team
and the  boys look pretty nobby in them.  •  BELLINGHAM HIGH, 34;
NORMAL, 29.  The first basketball game of the season was played in the 
Normal gymnasium on Saturday evening, December 17, between  the High School
and the Normal.  The game was a hard-fought battle, and the score was close
 throughout most of the game. There was quite a little rough  playing done
on both sides and one or two cases of inexcuseable  roughness. There were a
good many fouls called and here is  where the High made several of their
scores, for Davenport did  some excellent throwing from the foul linee.
Odle for the Nor­mal  made several points in the same way.  "Big Zeke"
Burpee played a star game for the High School,  making about two-thirds of
their score. He was by far the best  player on the High School team, but
this doesn't mean that he  had everything his own way at center, for Odle
certainly gave  him a good run for his money. Foster Carver played good
fast  ball for the High, and his big brother did some excellent work  for
the Normal.  The final score stood 34 to 29 in favor of the High School.

on the scene and distributed bounteously many and  grotesque presents to
those present.  Among the gifts that greatly delighted the receivers were a
 little play-horse for Mr. Deerwester, a miniature coffee-mill for  Mr.
Bond, a small, fuzzy dog for Miss Norton, and a nice little box  of pink
pills for Miss Gottlieb. Besides these presents, Frank  Whipple received a
lamp, a supply of tinware, and other house­hold  articles, all of
which he will be able to make good use of in  the near future. After the
gifts were distributed everyone formed  in line, and as they marched into
Miss Hays' and Mrs. Thatcher's  room, where games were played for the rest
of the evening, Santa  capped the joys of each by giving him a sack of
pop-corn.  PROGRAM AT CHRISTMAS TREE.  1 Dance Around Christmas Tree.

Santa Claus  •  MERRIE CHRISTMAS.  M stands for Mathes, so short and
so fat;  We love him, you bet; there's no joke about that.  E stands for
Epley, we love and adore  When he smelleth perfume, he sinks to the floor. 
R stands for Romine, with sky-blue, pink ties,  He sure is the envy of all
the swell guys.  R stands for Ruthie, who cures all our ills,  With doses
of medicine, powders, and pills.  I stands for Ida, who makes her mark felt
 In C's and C_j_'s she always has dealt.  E stands for Edens, whose father
we know,  For he is the man who made the Normal School grow.  C stands for
Catherine, Montgomery, too;  We hope she will let the Juniors all thro.  H
stands for Hillis, so sweet and so jolly,  She watches our fun and sees in
it no folly.  R stands for Rose, in her brain is no fog,  The "present set"
shows like a bump on a log.  I stands for Ida, her last name is Baker;  To
urge women's suffrage, she sure is no fakir.  S stands for Sperry, we love
and revere,  We enter her class room in trembling and fear.  T stands for
Thatcher, who usually smiles,  And nothing by talking and whispering riles.
 M stands for Moodie, with dimples and curls  Which fascinate daily a
roomful of girls.  A stands for Ada, who knows how to draw,  Paint a fair
tulip, and yet wield a saw.  S stands for Shaefer, so sweet and so coy, 
Who has caught in her net our one pretty boy.  Before we can go we will say
with good cheer,  Merrie Christmas to all and a Happy New Year.  •

presentation o£  some of the difficult numbers on the program showed a
marked  talent. The program:  1 Grand Carmen Fantaisie Jeno Tubay  2 (a) To
a Wild Rose McDowell-Hartmann  (b) Vision Franz Drdla  (c) Humoreske Anton
Dvorak  (d) Mazourka Wieniakski  Fred Moline defines caisson as "little
rubber bag to pump  air i n ."  •  " I t ' s the little things that
count in this life. That's why T  don't amount to much." F. 0.  • 
Mr. Eply (endeavoring to rescue from bright class hairless  animal which
couldn't live in this climate).  Bright class guesses monkey and everything
but right thing.  Poor Professor at wit's end, decides to ask another
question:  "What do ladies wear on their h a t s ? " Miss Dixon, not
noticing  second question, says "Hippopotamus," to the great delight of 
the Class. "No doubt some of the hats are large enough to ac­commodate
 them."  •  Mr. Eply—"What is a lake?"  Bright Student—"A
damned stream."  •  "Herpicide is a f a k e ! " For positive proof
call on F. F., 430  High street.  Mr. Eply—"What does environment
mean?"  M. F.—"Something that surrounds."  Mr.
Eply—"Well—eh—what do you mean? Clothes?"  •  Mr.
Bond carefully explains why young children like to  wear bright
colors—such as red. After glancing at one of the  Junior girls in the
Class he incidentally mentions that the older

2S THE MESSENGEtt  girls like to wear bright colors (such as red) to
brighten the color  in their cheeks. ("If the shoe fits put it on.") 
•  Tr. School Pupil—'' Us kids had a shanty down by the
track.''  Miss Orne—"You mean " w e " kids.  •  Why does A
always want to sing ' ' Out On the Deep.'' 1  •  Some appropriate
thinks that were on the Xmas tree:  "Specks" for grandmother (F. D.) 
"Latest Edition on Slang" (to N. C.)  "Framed Messenger Cover" (F. B.) 
"Bottle of 'Catch-Up' " (F. F.) We sincerely hope for the  desired effect,
Florence.  •  Miss Baxter (to Class in Observation during discussion
of les­son  taught by Mr. Patchin)—"We cannot put our hands in
our  pockets so we will have to criticize the men for doing i t ."  •
 IN ENGLISH CLASS.  Teacher—"Mr. Auner, how would you punctuate, 'I
saw  Lucile going down the street' "?  Mr. Auner—"I would make a big
dash after Lucile."  •  Four Everett girls went to room in one house,
and if you  pass by you may hear them shout:  "What's the matter with
Everett,  It's all right.  What's the matter with Everett?  For it we'll
fight.  If any one will dare to say  Anything about our city gay— 
What's the matter with Everett?  It's all right."  •  Miss Gottlieb
(appearing in G. B's room at the dormitory)—  "What on earth is the
matter with your elbows?"  G. B.—"I sandpapered them to make them
smoothe. Kids  all do i t . " (?).  •  Mr. Hanks takes his straight;
not mixed.  Bill Tuck-er home.  •  G. K. writes her name so that it
looks like Krause. Now,  don't be in a hurry! Wait until leap year. 
•  L. T. B.—"What am I studying this year? Why, sewing,

 •  Jessie N., ('10) would also like to know who "Ed." is. Is  he a
king of England, or what? Will some enlightened one  please inform her. 
•  Where did Mr. Boyd go the evening of December 18th?  •  Mr.
Bond, in explaining the geometrical term, "limit," gave  the following
illustration: "If a Normal boy should start to  the theater in company with
a girl, but at the first street corner  he should pick up another, at the
next corner another, and so on,  until he reached his destination, wouldn't
he be the 'limit' "?  •  Mrr. Moodie was heard to say to Miss Dawson,
" I t is just  two more years"!  •  Miss Baxter (in Senior
Observation)—"What is one-half ot'  four?"  Mr. Sherwood—"Two."
 Miss Baxter—"Good! that's right!"  •  Mr. Eply—"How does
a dog point?"  Geography Student—"With his tail."  •  Miss
Baxter (in Senior Observation)—"I have always known  that I would be
a good housekeeper if I ever had fhe chance."  •  Lost—A curl
paper. Finder please return to Mr. Heath.  •  Miss Gottlieb (to
Physiology Class)—"What is the best kind  of clothing?"  High School
Student—'' Newspaper.''  •  Mr. E.—"When did the lava
flows of Eastern Washington  occur?"  Miss O., (in desperation)—"Last
year."  Mr. E.—"Is that what drove the East boys out of there?"  Miss
O.—"I guess so."  "Sidney Johnson, talk on tertiary mammals."  S.
J.—"I can't talk." '  "Oh, what a recent affliction!"  • 
Report has it that Mr. Hanks likes his straight. His what?  may we ask?
Remember, this is a dry town.

30 THE MESSENGER  CRUEL CREATURE.  Elizabeth—"Are you going out for
supper, Sunday night?"  Robert (hopefully)—"Oh, no.'-'  E.—"My,
but you will be hungry Monday morning."  •  THE PITY.  Mr.
E.—"Mr. M.— says he used to part his hair in the mid­dle. 
Now he has parted with it in the middle—like myself.'' 
Jones—"Will you give our society a subscription? We are  trying to
down drink?"  Brown—"I can't give the subscription, but I'll help to
put  down the drink."  Now is the time when poets sing  About the glad New
Year;  With all its opportunities,  They tell us that it's here.  "With
chime of bell and bugle call  And flash of armor bright,  It brings a
challenge loud and clear  To go on in the fight."  But as for me heroics
seem  A little tiresome—  I'm not so glad the Old Year's gone  Or
glad the New Year's come.  The Old Year has been good to me—  I'm
leery of the new—  Why should I feel poetic  When my bills are coming
due?  And so despite the poets  I feel not glad or gay,  Nor at all
enthusiastic  Because it's New Year's Day.  It's fine to write an epic  On
each year when it's through—  But, then, I'm not a poet—  And
my bills are coming due.  —M. L. R., '11.  • • • 
Hurrah! At last we have found it out.  Mr. Bond (impressively—as only
he can impress)—"I teli  you what: Psychology is the hallucination of
some man's brain."  Long have we suspected it! Now to find the man who is
the  originator of that hallucination! What will we do to him? Oh— 
nothing!—nothing at all!—oh, no!

TEE MESSENGER 31  I walk down the hallway in silence  Down the dim,
voiceless hallway,—alone,  And I hear not the fall of a footstep 
Round me—save only my own.  And the hush in the hallway is mighty, 
For all of the students have flown.  You ask me the cause of this silence? 
Tis found in the following line;  For the voice of the faculty saieth:  "In
the hallway be still all the time!"  And the students because it is New
Year's  Will follow this rule so sublime.  (With Apologies to Bliss
Carman.)  J. A. D. H.  • • •  ALL THE SAME.  First
Girl—"Did you take 'Gym.' last term?"  Second Girl—"No; Jim

that did it officially."  •  "Why do you want to marry my daughter?
She's only a  school girl."  " I come early to avoid the rush."—Ex.
