THE WEEKLY MESSENGER  Vol. XVI.  Devoted to the Interests of the Student
Body, Washington State Normal School  BELLINGHAM, WASH., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY
24, 1 9 17 No. 20  Assembly  TAKE TIME TO LIVE!  "You students work too
hard," was  the opening remark made by Miss Nor­ton  on Monday while
addressing the  student body, and one received with  acclamation. She
continued, however,  in her inimitable way, "You do not ac­complish 
too much, but you work too  hard. Take time to appreciate life,
na­ture,  and the beauty to be found in ev­erything.  "Is it
enough that you should ad­mire  the vividly tinted sunsets, or the 
bright colors of autumn? The deep  purples, subdued blues and grays of 
winter possess a message also.  "The doing of things is a valuable  phase
of life, but do not let the doing  side crowd out the seeing and hearing 
part of your life. Have an open mind  —see beauty wherever you
look—hear  beautiful music—read good and enjoy­able 
books, for the pleasure they af­ford,  as well as for knowledge. 
"Take time to live! Some of us are  paying too much life for living. We 
must stop and live as we go along. Did  yon ever stretch out on a sandy
beach  ar on some sunny slope— all alone  with nature—rest and
think? Try it—  this sort of thing aids actual living.  You will
accomplish more if you real­ly  live more. In the words of Lowell:  "
'Merely to bask and ripen is some­times  the wiser scholar's ideal.' 
"Then I should add a word to the  3ld expression, and say, 'Stop, look, 
isten and live!' " This was Miss Nor-  :on's closing remark to a very
inspir­ing  address.  TINA LERNER,  The Brilliant Russian Pianist. 
UNA LERNER 10 BE  E 1 POWER OF A PURPOSE.  We were fortunate in having with
 is last Friday, Principal W. C. Weir,  )f the South Side High School.
Among  )ther phases of the question of ideals  le mentioned the great power
of hav-ng  a purpose in life—an ideal, which  ;ver advances as it is
approached.  "Ideals," he continued, "give a main  enter to life. Our
character cannot  ise above our ideals—they are the re-ult  of
purposeful endeavor. They  orm a standard by which we may  mild our
lives—play up, play the  ame, and have an aim."  Mr. Weir pointed
out, also, that the  atalogue of the ages shows lives that  ave developed
under some definite  urpose or ideal—that the lack of a  hance holds
no man down, if he de-ermines  to rise and follow his ideal.  Students and
faculty of the Normal  School of Bellingham are especially  interested in
the orchestra, for the  school proudly claims Madame Eng-berg,  director,
as a member of the  Normal music department. Miss Fran­ces  Hays, now
manager of the orches­tra,  was also until recently a valuable 
instructor at the Normal.  The program for the concert for  March 2 is
highly attractive. Its num­bers  are:  3. Italian Symphony Mendelssohn
 4. Piano soli—  (a) Impromptu A Flat Major.-Chopin  (b) Ecossaises
Chopin  (c) Nocturne F Minor Chopin  (d) Valse, Opus 34 No. 1 Chopin  TINA
LERNER.  .5. Invitation to the Waltz.... .Weber  6. Piano soli—  (a)
Polichinelle Rochmaninoff  (b) Au Couvent Borodine  (c) Music Box Liadow 
(d) C'-mpanella Liszt  TINA LERNER.  7. Andante Cantabile (Strings) 
Tschaikowsky  5. Marche Slav Tschaikowsky  1. Merry Wives of Windsor
Nicolai  2. Concerto for Pianoforte with Or­chestra  Greig  Allegro
Moderato  Adagio  Allegro Marcato  TINA LERNER.  On the Wednesday preceding
the  concert Mrs. Irving J. Cross and Mrs.  C. X. Larrabee will give a
second of  their delightful interpritive recitals.  Mrs. Larrabee will talk
of the history  and theme of some of the most beau­tiful  numbers on
the concert program,  and she and Mrs. Cross will then inter­pret

IS  STILL UNDEFEATED  On Monday, Feb. IS, the Normal  basketball team
returned home from a  successful trip in Eastern Washington.  They played
three games while away  and still have their record unmarred  by defeat.
The games were played  with the College of Puget Sound in  Tacoma,
Ellensburg Normal and Pros-ser  Athletic club, respectively. The  two
former teams have appeared on  the local floor this season, each time 
being defeated decisively. .  The return game with the College  of Puget
Sound, was much faster than  the first game, due to the largeness of  the
gmn, and the fact that both teams  showed marked improvement in their 
playing. The final score was 30 to 14.  The line-up:  W. S. N.—Wold
and Kennett, for­wards;  Davenport and Ansett, guards;  White, center.
 C. P. S.—Miller, and Curtis, for­wards;  Woody and Hanawall,
guards;  Huntington, center.  Substitutions—Ford for Davenport,  and
Rocky for Wold.  Summary—Field goals: White, 4;  Kennett, 3, and 6
fouls; Davenport, 2;  Huntington, 2; Ford, 1; Anstett, 1;  Wold, 1; Miller,
1, and 8 fouls.  "Tii the return game with Ellensburg  Normal the
Bellingham boys were in  entirely new conditions. Scattered  about in the
Ellensbui-g gym are large  osts that at one time were paddet, but  most of
which has been worn off ana  in some of the warmer mixups these  immovable
structures would suddenly  loom up and take an active part in the  contest.
The Bellingham boys, how­ever  are used to overcoming obstacles  and
had little trouble in winning by  the score of 43 to 17.  The line-ups: 
Bellingham Normal—Wold and Dav­enport,  forwards; Anstett and
Ford,  guards; Rocky, center.  Ellensburg Normal—Campbell and  Green,
forwards; Eaton and M. White,  guards; Beck, center.  Substitutions,
Bellingham—Kennett  for Wold; J. White for Kennett.  If it's a

Campbell, 7; Wold, 2; Ken­nett,  1.  In a fast and exciting game the 
Prosser Athletic Club was defeated by  the score of 45 to 18, in Prosser,
Feb.  17. The Prosser team composed of  old high school stars, were
confident  that the Normal team Avould be easy  meat but when the visitors
got into  action their hope were blasted. The  Eastern Washington boys have
a good  team, but the Bellingham quintet  played the best game it has ever 
played and . the local five was out-clased  in all departments of the game.
 There was a large crowd out to see  the game and the zest and vim of the 
crowd did much to add to the attrac­tion.  The line-up:  Bellingham
Normal—Wold and H.  Kennett, forwards; Davenport and An­stett, 
guards; White (Captain), center.  Proser A. C.—C. Kennett and
Ches-ley,  forwards; Loofburrow, center;  Domanville and Bernard, guards.

reporter.  The club is to be entirely social and  all the people who have
attended  school or lived in Everett are cordial­ly  invited to join
the club. The name,  "Spark Plug of the West," was chosen  because it is
the new prize slogan of  Everett. Colors, blue and gold, were  adopted, and
all members desiring  pins wall give their names to the pres­ident  as
soon as possible.  We hope to make this club a live  wire and will all
members please  watch the bulletin board and come to  the meetings ready to
"boost" and  have a good time.  There will be a very interesting
mus­ical  program at the First Presbyterian  church, corner of Garden

NOTES.  One of the most enjoyable meetings  of the club was held last
Thursday ev­ening.  After the business meeting a  short program was
given. "History of  St. Valentine's Day," Miss Warren;  reading by Miss
Dybdahl; song, "Corn-in'  Thru the Rye," by the club. Mrs.  King then read
an interesting clipping,  which Miss Woodard kindly gave to  the club,
telling of the life of Ohiyesa.  The remainder of the evening was  spent in
the big gym having a good  time, especially with the new members  who were
initiated. Later refreshments  were served in thep rettily decorated 
cafeteria. At this time appropriate  valentines were distributed to the 
members of the society.  STUDIO CLUB NOTES.  Thursday evening of last week,
the  members of the Studio club met and  participated in one of the most
enjoy­able  evenings of the year. After the  regular monthly business
meeting, an  interesting program was given.  Miss Loutett opened the
program  with a piano solo. This was followed  by two vocal solos, given in
a most  charming manner by Miss Hazel Dash-ley.  Miss Bailey read a paper
on the life  and works of Rodin, a modern sculp­tor.  The last number
on the progrgam  was a most profitable and interesting  talk by Miss
Beardsley. Her subject  was "Famous Pictures by Rembrandt  and
Contemporaries in Galleries at  Home and Abroad." The talk was
il­lustrated  with lantern slides.  The program was followed by games 
appropriate to St. Valentine's day, af­ter  which refreshments were
served.  The following students were voted  into the- club: Alice Drew,
Jean  Belch, Alice Belch, Esther Korthauer.  These will be initiated at the
next bus­iness  meeting.  The Y. M. C. A. is not a dying
in­stitution,  but is gaining strength and  influence every day. The
labor bu­reau,  headed by Mr. Owen, is showing  splendid returns, and
proves a boon to  all in search of work. The program  committee has
arranged for a schedule  of lectures that no man can afford to  miss. Plans
for a joint meeting with  the Y. W.'s is under way. Thruout  the semester
work will be of the very  highest standard. Last Thursday  morning the club
was favored by an  excellent talk by Mr. Hoppe. Here are  some of the
sparkling truths the speak­er  uttered. "There is nothing more 
practical than the workings of the  square deal. The time of cut-throat 
methods of business has passed. The  principle of caveat emptor, 'let the 
buyer beware,' no longer exists. The  railway companies of today shout 
equal respect and courtesy towards all.  Every time we take an elevator, we
 see the workings of the square deal, in  the responsibility someone takes
for  our safety. In spite of cynical ways  and expressions every man has an
in­nate  instinct of the square deal. The  attitude, 'do others or
they will do you,  and do them first,' is not maintained,  even by those
who profess it. There is  nothing more difficult than to be hon­est 
with one's self. It demanus ar gt;  imagination to fathom the feelings of 
others, to see ourselves twenty years  from now, to prepare for old age, to
 give ourselves and others a square  deal. In the food we take, in the
hours  we keep, and in the words we say, our  sense of the square deal is
portrayed.  A man who can't give a square deal is  the one who thinks the
world has it  in for him. The law of the balance  manifests itself in the
rythm between  give and receive. The ability to give a  square deal,
demands above all else  the culture of that spark of the divine,  within
us, that is called conscience."  Mrs. Irving J. Cross has accepted the 
position of organist at the First Pres­byterian  church, corner of
Garden and  Maple streets. Any students who are  interested in church music
and choir  training are cordially invited to attend  an important choir
practice on Tues­day  evening at the church.  Mrs. G. E. Munn of
Kansas City was  a guest of Miss Druse at the a r t de­partment  one
day last week.  Mrs. Munn was formerly a teacher  of wide experience. She
found the de­partment  to be one of the most up to  date she had ever
visited and the ex-habit  of hard" work excellent.  Alton S. Druse of
Seattle spem.  Thursday with his sister, Miss Druse.  There are eighty-five
taking bas­ketry  and as many taking rural school  hand work.  The
coping saw work taught by Mr.  Paulson and Mr. Mercer, under the 
supervision of Miss Druse, is attract­ing  a great deal of attention.

"Living," that Miss Nor­ton  gave in assembly on Monday, in  our
opinion, was one of the very best  talks we have heard this year. It was 
:not really a talk—it was rather an in­spiring  sermon. We know
that her  words struck home to the hearts of  the students; we hope that
they will  now put them into practice.  Happy the man, and happy he alone,

with her wonderful power, man­ages  a great part of the_ work  of the
institution.  During the day dressed in the digni­fied  dress that
becomes her po­sition,  She attends to her executive duties,  And all
men do her bidding.  But at night she goes home,  And once within her own
little kitch­en,  She puts on a blue apron and gets  dinner  And
washes the dishes afterward.  She gets breakfast the next morning  In the
same blue apron.  With the heavy responsibilities of her  position upon her
 And so many things to attend to,  It is not to be wondered at  That she
sometimes  Is absent minded.  Sometimes she almost forgets  To take off her
blue apron  When she goes to work.  One night  She had a dream:  She saw
herself in her office,  And her assistants were with her,  But they would
not go about their  duties—  They only stood  And stared at her. 
Against the pane of glass in her of­fice  door,  She saw faces  And
eyes—many pairs of eyes—  All staring at her.  "Why do they all
look at me?" she  cried.  "Why do they not go about their busi­ness?" 
Just then  She looked down  And what did she see?  She had on her blue
apron!  She awoke.  Great beads of perspiration stood on  her forehead, 
And she trembled violently.  She arose and groped her way into  the kitchen
 And found the apron.  She went back and woke her friend  who shared her
home with her.  "Promise me faithfully," she said,  "That you will watch
this apron,  And see  That it is not on me  After 9 a. m.  Ever."  She
shook her friend roughly—  "I promise," said Margaret.  Patronize

Building, Bellingham, Wash.  I  On Saturday evening, Feb. IS, the 
Social-Democratic club bad a party in  the domestic science rooms. This was
 the third party that the club has en­joyed  this year.  The members
were divided into four  groups and each group acted as a unit  in the
series of contests which took  place. Each group elected a leader and  then
this leader chose from the num­ber  in his group one who should hold 
up the honor of his group and win  the prize in each particular contest. 
Had the names given to the contests  not been so deceiving, the leader 
might have used better judgment. As  it was he often chose wrongly. For 
instance, for the "Broad Jump" he  would choose the one who looked as 
though he might excel in jumping,  while in reality he should have chosen 
the one who had the broadest smile,  for that proved to be the nature of
the  contest. There was one contest "for  men only." It was a contest in a
new  method of locomotion—moving for­ward  while seated on a
board, using  both feet and one hand. Starr Suth­erland  won the prize
but Dr. Herre  deserves honorable mention. Each  group cheered their
contestants, and  altogether it was a very exciting race.  There were about
ten different con­tests  in all.  The refreshments consisted of ice 
cream and cake. Eating ice cream  was not one of the contests, but had  it
been a contest the object of which  was to be to consume the greatest 
quantity of ice cream, it is pretty gen­erally  conceded that Mr.
Bever would  have easily led all others.  P r i c e s M o d e r a t e .

It was thoroly enjoyed  by about forty members. Our junior  members are to
be congratulated as  they were responsible for its great suc­cess. 
The program of the evening was as  follows: Toastmistress, Frances
Ire­land;  song, Vida Deign; toast "Past,"  Maude Carfield; song,
Gladys Hamly;  toast "Present," Josephine Archam-beau;  song, Mrs. Colby;
toast "Fu­ture,"  Emily Crawford; duet, Louise  Fraser and Julia de

told us or  its life of eleven years, and of all the  things in which the
Alkisiahs have  been the first to participate. We have  reason to be proud
of our record.  ,1Y  E  On February .the first, the Hays Lit­erary 
society continued the study of  George Benard Shaw. Vergia Fox  gave a
reading of one of his plays,  "Getting Married." As it was long  she gave'
only the first part. Cassie  Cales read an interesting article on  "Shaw
and Jesus."  Music followed the literary part of  the program: Piano, Ruth
Morrison;  ukulele duet, Jessie Bay and Lula  Dieckhoff.  February 15,
Shaw's play "Getting  Married" was finished by Ruth Part­ridge.  The
following piano selections  were given by Miss Gardener of the  Y. W. C.
A.: Waltz, Chopin; Grillen,  Schumann; Voglein, Grieg.  The rest of the
evening was spent  enjoying a valentine party. Much mer­riment  was
caused over a plant and  flower contest. Questions were asked  to be
answered with the name of some  plant or flower.  After finding partners by
matching  pieces of valentine cards, a Virginia  reel was formed and
danced.  Hotel Leopold  Fisher: "If 2 and 1 makes shoe  blackening, and 3
and 1 makes sewing  machine oil, what will 4 and 1 make?"  Davis:
"Why—a. I don't know."  Fisher: "Some mathematician/ 5,  of course." 
Fine argumentative ability was  shown in the debate on National
Cen­sorship  of the Fine Arts last Thursday  evening in the Aletheia
club. The af­firmative  side, which was upheld by  Mr. Mercer, Mrs.
Vannoy and Miss  Mabel Smith, attempted to prove that  local censorship
boards are incapable  of handling the problem, inasmuch as  they lack
authority to carry out their  decrees, while a national board of
cen­sorship  would have at its call the en­tire  force of the
United States gov­ernment.  They held that such censorship  would not
repress true talent, but  would uncover the deceits which pass  in the
disguise of highest art.  This board of censorship was to  consist of about
one hundred men paid  by the government.  They were then to be diveded into
 several groups, the members »of each  of which would be unusually
qualified  to judge certain phases of art.  In answer to the affirmative
argu­ment  the negative, Mrs. Shepherd,  Miss Bolton and Miss Mann,
replied  •that force cannot remedy evil, and  pointed out that should
force be em­phasized  in the form advocated it  might under certain
conditions make  it possible to abridge even the right  of free speech. 
They attacked with vigor the com­parison  made by their opponents of 
censorship of fine arts to food inspec­tion.  The negative claimed
that art  NATIONAL  BARBER  SHOP  1304 Dock Street  Best in our line  We

and governed by the  emotions. Because of this very fact  it is impossible
to assemble together a  set of men Avho could judge art. Hence,  after all,
the people are the final  judges.  The negative won by a comfortable 
majority.  After the debate the club enjoyed  a valentine frolic in the
little gymnas^  ium.  Y. W. C. A.  Miss Sands of the faculty gave an 
inspiring talk to the gigrls of the Y.  W. C. A. Thursday, February 15, in 
the association room. Special music  by Miss Hamley and Miss Randle was 
enjoyed by the girls present. All gigrls  are cordially invited to attend
the next  meeting, which will be held Thurs­day  at 4:10 p. m.  Miss
Edens: Where is "obey" used  generally?"  Gerald Van Horn: "I've heard it
is  used in marriage ceremonies."  Miss Edens: I've heard so too.  Eyeglass

CERTIFICATES  Mr. Thompson is justly proud over  the excellent record of
his penmanship  students. Over three hundred students  have applied for the
first button, on  merit. The folowing have completed  the course and
received a Palmer  teacher's certificate: Misses Agnes  Bailey, Ruth
Dieson, Mollie Carson,  Lea Dudgeon, Bertha A. Dooley, Helgo  Nassie,
Elizabeth Arnold, Nina Han­son  and Mrs. Shepherd.  Did you see the
Palmer method  group from this Normal in the Febru­ary  number of the
American Penman?  Twenty of Mr. Thompson's students,  who secured
certificates from him are  portrayed.  An extremely tall Irishman,
travel­ing  in the West, put up at a hotel in  a small town and was
shown to his  room for the night. In a short time  he appeared down stairs
and asked  for scissors, needle and thread. An  hour later he returned them
and said,  sadly: "Faith, it's no use."  When asked what he meant, he
re­plied:  "Why the blanket wasn't long  enough to cover me feet, so
Oi cut a  piece off the top and sewed it on the  bottom, but 'tis no better
now."  HUSH.  What's the best thing you ever have  done?  The whitest day, 
The cleverest play  That ever you set in the shine of the  sun?  The time
that you felt just a wee bit  proud  Of defying the cry of the cowardly 
crowd  And stood back to back with God?  Aye, I notice you nod,  But
silence yourself, lest you bring  me shame  That I have no answering deed
to  name.  What's the worst thing that ever you  did?  The darkest spot, 
The blackest blot  On the page you have pasted together  and hid?  Oh,
sometimes you think you've for­gotten  it quite,  Till it crawls in
your bed in the dead  of the night  And brands you its own with a blush. 
What was it? Nay, hush!  Don't tell it to me, for fear it be known  That I
have an answering blush of my  own.  But whenever you notice a clean hit 
made,  Sing high and clear  The sounding cheer  You would gladly have heard
for the  play you played.  —Edmund Vance Cooke.  B ATTERSBY BROQ

Friday, Mr. Parish, with the  assistance of Mrs. Merriman, Miss  Meyers and
Miss Olden, entertained  the people of Mountain View with a  literary and
musical program. A large  audience testified to the excellent  work done. 
At Skykomish, on the same date,  Mr. Hoppe gave a lecture entitled "The 
King Who Fell." Mr. Budde, a Normal  graduate, now principal of the
Sky­komish  school, is a powerful factor in  community work. It was
thru his ef­forts  that the community was priv­ileged  to hear
Mr. Hoppe's lecture.  Miss Vollmer's father, C. G. Vollmer,  of South
Dakota, returned Sunday  after, a brief visit with his daughter.  Owing to
the wholesome and delight­ful  chaperoning of Miss Nickerson and  Miss
McCown, the Uunior party of  Saturday night proved to be one of the 
plpeasantest enterprises of the year.  Mr. Bond and Miss Norton is
direct­ing  the Freshman-Sophomore party  made Saturday evening a
pleasure to  all in attendance.  Mr. Hoppe called a meeting of the 
committee governing the literary con­test  for the Klipsun, Tuesday,
and im-protant  rulings were acted upon.  Mr. Parish made a flying business
 trip to Sedro-Woolley by automobile  last Saturday.  Dr. Nash left for
Olympia, for a  conference with the legislators, Mon­day  morning.  At
the last meeting of the Art club  Miss Beardsley gave an illustrated
lec­ture,  on the life and work of Rem­brandt.  Miss Woodard was
one of the  guests present.  Mr. Edson has just issued an order  for
fifteen new typewriters for the  commercial department.  PLUG.  As you

The second Senior-Junior Kline cup  game was played at 4:10 Friday, Feb. 
26, 1917, and resulted in a defeat for  the Seniors. The score which was 
very close, the Juniors winning only  by one point, was 13-12. The first
game  as we know, was won by the Seniors  and the second by the Juniors,
thus  giving them an equal race for the last  game which will decide the
winning of  the Kline cup. The game was very  fast as the score indicates,
and a large  crowd enthusiastically rooted for their  respective teams.
This game showed  more skill and practice on part of both  teams, the team

Friday eve­ning,  February 2. Those present were:  Miss Vollmer, Mrs.
Kuykendall, Mar­ion  Smith, Alice Kirkpatrick, Mr. and  Mrs.
Kirkpatrick, Vernon Broadbent,  Elwyn Bugge and George Hunt. Later  in the
evening the party was made  merrier by the presence of Mrs. Mer-riman  and
Miss Barbara Davis.  After the program, which consisted  of some most
excellent violin num­bers,  executed (?) by Elwyn Bugge,  and a game
of "Flying Cloud," intro­duced  by Mr. Kirkpatrick, the mem­bers 
retired to the kitchen to prove  their ability in taffy-pulling. The 
champion was Alice Kirkpatrick. El­wyn  dropped his taffy on the floor
and  in his confusion and embarrassment,  ate it by mistake. Vernon holds
the  record for amount consumed in a giv­en  length of time.  Friday
night, February 16, the  Freshmen and Sophs gave a fancy  dress party, with
Mr. Bond and Miss  Norton as patron and patroness. Over  sixty were present
and enjoyed them­selves  hugely, tho they could not but  regret the
absence f Mr. Parish. They  all wanted to see him in fancy dress,  but he
was obliged to attend the Par­ent-  Teachers' meeting at Fermlale that
 night. "Eats" of ice cream and cook­ies  were served and the
assembled  multitude of Freshies and Sophs dis­persed,  each to go
home and to their  downy beds.  FAILURE.  What is a failure? It's only a
