F or l Vlidnig  The above represents  the extempore cup presented 
to the Northwest  Viking for the best  comic edition published  on the
Pacific coast  since 1900.  Nice that it's extemporaneous  — if 
there'd been thought  connected we  n't have got it.  A  few  m o n t h s 
ago there arose  a very timely discussion  in faculty meeting  over the
possibility of holding  school on Saturdays and Sundays  next summer.
According to Dr. L. P.  Bond, enthusiastic fisherman, this would leave 
more fish to be caught per person in the rivers on  Mondays and Tuesdays,
when the weekly rest period  would be held. Another convenience to be
instituted upon the  inauguration of the new system would be that students
on hikes on  Mondays and Tuesdays would not be such an object of curiosity
to the crowd  common to the favorite hiking haunts on the ordinary
week-ends.  A resolution was formed and unanimously passed.  KING  Hiking
Students Leave! THE VIKINGS  Winding up a quarter's activities in the
hiking field .about 350 students will leave tomorrow for the wide  open
Spaces. The group, which is represented by a few students and most of the
faculty will meet on the  knol at 4:30 Saturday morning, August 24; With
Dean James Bever in the lead, the hikers will leave on foot  for Eliza
island where a reception will be held for President Fisher who has just
returned from Olympia. There is no prict^  attached to the outing, so
everyone is urged to come and have a good time by all, since, the
authorities have granted surf board^  for 150 extra people.  Providing that
some of the tenderfoots desire to ride home on the street car bring your
own street car. Because of the uniqueness of the  trip and the idea of no
price attached, i will rain tomorrow.  would  Coming as a complete surprise
to the students of Bellingham State Normal school and Whatcom High school
respectively, was the announcement that the over-population  of the
last-named hall of learning necessitates the exchange of buildings for the
forth-comiming and succeeding school years.  Why Love Your Fellow Men?  P 
f  ft  Prom September 1 on, Whatcom High school will take up on the Normal
grounds and in the Nrmal buildings. All membera of the Normal school
student body will attend  classes in the building now known as Whatcom High
school. "Prexy" Chuck Fisher made the following statement regarding this
change, "This is a change I hav been looking  forward to for a long time.
I'm not so good at hiking as I used to be, and there are too many stairs to
climb in the old Normal building."  The principal of Whatcom High school,
Ernest F. Wells, is quoted as being "tickled pink" with the prospect of
climbing the countless stairs in the Normal  building. "I hear it makes the
ankles slim," he winked.  A  Poem  by James  Gordon Barn-hart  and Harry 
Earl Goheen.  The night falls softly  spreading velvety wings  over the
world.  The winds blow whisperingly  through the trees;  Carrying sweet
messages of love,  It soughs far above me  As I stand lonely with ghosts of
"dead dreams  In my arms.  NOW DON'T YOU THINK WE SHOULDN'T CELEBRATE?  At
the most colorful and brilliant spectacle of the century, the long-wished-
for new physical education building was dedicated at the  Western
Washington College of Education for Technical Knowledge in the World of the
Pedagogue. Aged ,and endeared in the  eyes of his students, President A. B.
Seedye was quite the man of the hour. It was only through his ceaseless and
untiring  efforts and pressure upon the state legislature that funds for
the historic building were obtained. Original plans which  were started by
President Seedye more than fifty years ago, back- in 1934, have been
carried; out td a "T in the  new building, except in the site plans. Is is
said that where the new building stands was the location of  a magnificent
library consisting of more than 50,000 volumes. Toi date, no records have
found to  verify the rumors.  C  ALE  NDAR  Friday, November  32— 
11:00—Surprise! ! !  Saturday, July 15—  4:30 a. m. —
Bring your  own streetcar. Prexy reception.  Voices of remembered loves
haunt me with poignant  remembrances  And my soul stretches out wraithlike
arms toward the  cold moon.  It is fall and Love is dead!  The main feature
of the building is the georgeous swimming pool occupying the entire  upper
floor of the structure. Master of ceremonies was the grandson of a former 
student body president, who is said to have been president at the time the 
building was first hoped for. An immense crowd turned out to see  President

WASHINGTON STATE NORMAL SCHOOL, A COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, BELLINGHAM,
WASHINGTON  /£  Do - Re - Mi - Fa - La - Ti - Do  My Best Teacher
Stubbed His Toe  And When He Sat Down To Cry  I Just Said—Oh My, My,
Oh My  "Doo-wacka-doo, doo-wacka-doo", was the theme of the assembly of 
Sunday, August 18, 11:00 a. m., sponsored by the faculty of the Belling-ham
 State Normal school, under the direction of Artie Hicks and Trudy 
Longley. The stage was a scene of gaiety with all the bright colors that 
could be borrowed from the Art department, and the cute toy animals 
borrowed from the girls of Edens hall.  The immortal "Sonny Boy" was 
rendered by L. A. "Lanny Ross"  Kibbie (this was the only serious  number
on the program). The  hcarming ballet, "Afternoon of a  Faun" was danced in
delicious pink  costume of flaring skirts and tight  bodice, by "Dapper
Jimmie" Bever,  whose twinkling little feet twinkled.  One of the most
popular number  was the recitation "I Picked a Lemon  in the Garden of
Love" by Eddie  "Creased Pants" Arntzeh. Some  trick bicycle riding was
performed  to the loud applause of the enthusiastic  audience by the trimly
shirted  and shortd popular team Vicki  "Happe" Hoppe and Mazie-Zoe 
(Mamie-ot) Wilson. The culmination  of the act was culminated  when
Mabie-Zoe hung by one toe  from the handle-bars, while Vicki  peddled with
his ears with his  fingers crossed, and lit a cigarette  with his toes. 
"Believe it or not," quoth Artie,  "I'm d—d tired a' goin' ta this
here  dump when they ain't none a' that  ther hot stuff goin' around. The 
idea of this here program is ta snap  things up a little in this here
Normal  school and make all youse  studes realize that this^here school 
has still got some life in it. -*-*-$?  %%!" Doc Artie's last remarks had 
to be deleted because they melted  down the printing forms).  We Owe It

A complete  handbook with illustrations and  practical suggestions.  THE
RED MENACE, or Positive  Proof that Moscow is actually located  in Idaho. 
The books on this list are strikingly  similar to one another in that  they
all seem to be written in English.  Mr. First and Mr. Hoover  write in
their customary forceful  tone while Aunt Hettie is a bit more  reserved,
though possibly more practical.  •  Backgammon is one of the lousiest
 games ever invented. I don't know  •why I included this book anyway.
 However, there was no car ever  manufactured that quite equalled  the
ModelT Ford. They are gradually  becoming extinct and the lethargic  public
doesn't even seem to  care. The last book speaks for itself  in accents so
strong that no one  can understand it. With social insecurity  rampant and
war threatening  these books are required reading.  They also resemble each
 other in that they are all bound in  cloth.  Okey-doke.—How's your

now it is your own Aunt Karrie's Kooking Kor-ner  time. For today we have
just all kinds of goodies  for you.  Something different and something new
makes up  the main dish for today. You've all heard of applesauce  haven't
you? Oh, yes you have—haven't you  spent an hour talking to someone
who when you have  finished says, "Applesauce" and walks away? Well,  that
isn't the kind I am going to-tell you about today.  This kind is really and
truly thrill and different.  The only apple used is your own teeny weeny 
Adam's apple! Isn't that just too poof-poof?  First bring in a plank and
nail it securely to the  living room floor, then go to the kitchen and peek
 around the corner and see it is still there. (Is the  plank still there?)
Bend over sinky so your Adam's  apple is directly over cuppy. Pick up your
tootsies  and turn around two or three times (keep that apple \  directly
over cuppy!) When you have finished y«u;  will find (surprise!) a
little liquid in:;;,the cuppy.  Pour over the plank, if it is still there
and lo and  behold—there is your own little apple cobbler!  If you
still feel the same and don't get too many  splinters eating it, just write
in to Aunt Tizzie and  she'll have another goody all ready for you.  o

few days without it. Furthermore we never know  how disturbing candy is
until we eat just a little more  than enuff (Simplified Spelling from

your attention to the fact  that you shouldn't let one blade of grass grow

IT OVER  The world was made to contain  only a few born (well, aren't we 
all?) sports writers—like Grantland  Rice—and Royal
Brougham—and  Harry Winsor—.And when a woman  doesn't know what
the score is, why  then sports, from a lady's point of  view (granted of
course, that the  aforementioned woman is a lady) is  no sport at all, just
quite a mess.  And so, fully aware that: "Sport  writers are born, not
maids"—this  past season, as have all the other  seasons, probably,
is best closed  with a complete rehashing.  The season opened with a bang. 
Most qf the games were ended that  way, too—with allowances for the 
times that the gun stuck. Softball  immediately came into prominence; 
•'„•. . . the Skylarks beat the Nightingales,  after
which game Coach  Carver was heard to remark that he  thought it was a
"birdy good game".  Basketball also came in for its  share of importance.
During the  winter season, games were all held  at Whatcom High school, but
with  the arrival of summer, it was decided  to hold them summer else, so 
Fairhaven High came for its share  of rooters (both of them). Everybody 
and Bill Prender turned out  for the team, and from the mob,  five men were
selected who could  play the game, and even won one,  or two, or maybe
more.  This has really been a successful  season. (Kindly note that nowhere
 in this column is mention made that  Norman Bright won a record— 
THAT has never happened in any  previous issue). There were times  when it
looked as though Lewie  Shaffer might have to call on Sam  Carver for some
aid in running the  men's PE Dept., but the best men always  win—(and
what's this got to  do with a. wedding?)  Splash Hour, popular weekly

what i  mean i want to put out a ; few  bouquets or little bunches of

it? and  why?  first there is this doris condo-george,  the girl who you
know has  been writing this thing this quarter  and what a fine little girl
it turned  out she is! always she had something  nice to write about that
people  like to read and always she had  her copy in right on time always, 
but i don't want too much to praise  her.  then there is managing editor 
pinckney who once bought me a cup  of coffee, she just asked me what  time
it was and i had to tell her i  don't know and then just like that  our
friendship began and one day  when i wasn't expecting it why she  said come
on and have a cup of coffee,  just like that you see. and  she's a grand
little girl, even if the  coffee was too strong.  then there is news editor
Johnson,  but i can't think of anything nice  to say about news editor
Johnson,  there must be something though,  cause everybody has something
nice  about him, so news editor Johnson  is a grand little girl too.  and
then there is my partner co-sportseditor  barnhart who sometimes  wrote a
story and who is a  great guy even if he did, but don't  mind that. 
feachure editor goff must be a  grand guy too, but i never was  around much
so all i know is what i  read on her featcher page and most  of that would

editor shenenberger is my  superior so i will at great effort refrain  from

WASHINGTON STATE NORMAL SCHOOL, A COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, BELLINGHAM,
WASHINGTON  In a recent number of the Pedagogue Pedantry, M. Carswell
Whiffle-tree  discusses "The Infliction of Corporal Punishment upon the
Young;  of Homo Sapiens". This prominent educator bewails the fact that
little  research is- being carried on in his particular field and that no
improved  techniques have been introduced within the last fifty years.
Rather  has there been an actual decline in the utilization of this device
for securing  pupil attention.  "Well do I remember", states the author,
"how, when I was a boy, my  teacher used to hall, me up before the class
and lustily thump my but- I  tocks with a supple birch switch. Nowadays a
good many children j  wouldn't know a birch tree if they saw one'..  Dr.
Whiffletree believes every school yard should have its birch tree.  But
this is only one of the reforms he advocates.  "When I was .a boy we used
to trudge miles to school through the snowdrifts.  It was probably the
experience of overcoming such hardships  which was responsible : for my
later successes. If children underwent  such experiences today they would
develop stronger characters and not  fall victims to Hummistic Whopper
Gander". He is in favor of producing  artificial snowstorms two or three
times a year in every school district.  "If they can do it in Hollywood to
make a silly picture, why not  other places, as a means to preserve the
morale of our schoolchildren?"  he asks.  At the present time Professor
Whiffletree is working on an invention  which he thinks will revolutionize
the profession. This is an automatic  whipping machine. The culprit is
strapped on a small platform and a  series of paddles revolve, striking the
flanks smartly  The installation of his device will, Whiffletree feels,
greatly discourage  PACIFIC COAST PAPER MILLS  Bellingham, Washington

Last Thursday's assembly featured  Mr. Alexius Martinez Seboyious  Carlos
Rollandas Anderson, famous  lecturer and dietician at'the Old  People's
Home, on the Phillipine  islands.  Mr. A. M. S. C. R. A.'s subject was 
"The relationship of African Zulus  to the Dionne quintuplets, if any". 
Mr. Amscra was very enthusiastic  about his subject, and as he opened  his
address, he remarked: "African  Zulus are African Zulus", which  came is
quite a surprise to the stu-dent  body, who probably had never  thought of
it before!  "I must say", he went on, "that  the Dionne quintuplets are
French-  Canadian. Does that mean anything  to you?" At this point the 
speaker removed his glasses, and  ran his hand through his hair, in  such
manner as to resemble an African  Zulu.  The speaker then told how there 
are 167,000,000,000 African Zulus,  and only five quintuplets, all
belonging  to the same family. The  quintuplets, not the Africans. As  Mr.
Amscra replaced his glasses,  combed his hair, and blew his nose  quite
vehemently until his face became  quite purple, the audience  booed. They
wanted to hear more  about the Dionnes, but the speaker  continued: "My
friends, can't you  see, that if there are 177,000,000,000  Africans, and
only five of the quintuplets  that nobody cares anyway?"  With this as a
final statement, Mr.  Amscra departed from the platform  via his roller
skates, which he always  takes with him.  And so concludes another
assembly,  thank goodness! Now to run  and eat!  SEAFOODS  YOU LIKE TO EAT

green and yellow basket. . . .  three big cheers for the WAA. (We  Aren't
Adults). Now the blues,  one-two-three-four  "See the cow all red and
white—  I love the cow with all my mite."  —Shakespeare.  There
now. Heads all down on  desks for a little 15 minute rest before  we have
our graham crackers  and milk. Rock-a-bye baby m m m-m-  m-m All sound
asleep. Isn't  that a touching sight? Each tired  head resting peacefully
on two  chubby, dimpled arms.  While they're resting I'll explain  this to
you. You see us school  teachers aren't particularly interested  in
athletics—but I must admit  there's nothing I like better than a 
good, fast game of "Old Maid".  There's something so exhilirating  about
it, don't you think? But to  continue, we took over the WAA,  calling it
the "WE Aren't Adults"  club. We feel that in this club we  are fulfilling
a need long felt in  this school. Also we're affording a  number of
students with good,  wholesome recreation. Now our rest  period is over. We
must continue  our business meeting.  Let's all wake up now and tie our 
napkins carefully under our chins.  Lizzie, you may pass the crackers. 
Sadie, get the bottles of milk.  There. Let's all try to eat as  quietly as
we can. Hildegarde, Orchestra  practice is not until seven  o'clock
tonight. There's no need to  start tuning up already. Wipe faces 
cheerfully. Now we will turn the  meeting over to the program committee. 
All ready now? Pink hair ribbons  in this corner playing "Clap, Clap, 
Curtsey", blues in that digging in  the sand pile, greens in the other 
room playing "Pussy Wants a Corner".  Not too much noise please!  Don't you
really think this is a  wonderful thing we're doing for  these students?
Watch the roses  come back into those pale cheeks as  they forget all their
cares—term  papers, notebooks, themes and finals,  and live again
their carefree  childhods.  Time to stop now. Put everything  back where
you found it. Line up  by two's. Now let's mark time.  Left, right, left,
right, forward J  march. Don't forget your rubbers,  Millie, and help
"Johnny" on with  hers. Oh, Doris, don't forget your  doll buggy and your
tin dishes.  As the last student walked out,  her little red wagon piled
high with  books, notebooks, outlines, etc., she  turned and grasping the
president's  hand fervently she said in a hoarse  voice, "You'll never know
how much  you've done for me".  Brushing a tear from her eye the  president
turned to me and said,  "It's just the little things like that  that make
life worthwhile".  It has been whispered that the  WAA is going to nominate
Shirley  Temple to run in the 1936 presi-?  dential campaign. Will she have
a  chance against Baby Leroy?  Wait and SEE!!!!  The actors made a clean
sweep of a very dusty old folio in a rendition  of that soon to be immortal
at the bookworm club last Saturday at  eleven. The Library was the scene of
festivities, All the Desks were;  fohoved back to one end of the Main
Reading Room. I'll never forget the  sight. But of course you're interested
in the play. You should have  seen it. ' ' - ' •  The name of the
play "The rise and fall of Henery Ford", takes me  back to my boyhood and
about forty-minutes. It was very enjoyable.  And had! very fevorable
acclaim by the audience. There was noise that•;  amounted to a furore
back of me when the heroin fell into the soup and  the scenery tipped over.
 I was asked by another critic the following question and I thought that 
my following would like to hear it. She asked in substance the following, 
"Did the motions that the hero made indicate emotion or Pleas?" I or 
course replied, "It was something here inside—-But frankly according 
to the script there are no motions made in any direction throughout the 
play that would indicate hives. Please pardon the levity, I am of course 
nothing like this in real life.  In the rising action we see Henery Ford
(Landie Oberlots) at 4:30 in  the grey passage of dawn thumbing through his
bank book. He leaps to  his feat. Then later after his dawning of a
swimming suit to please some  of the prudish members of the elite-such
things never bother me, I just  tap my forehead with a tentative finger and
hum a bar of soap—he  stands to his feet and reaches for a towel on
the edge of the tub that's  where the falling action begins and he lands on
the floor in the interim  Landie in his performance reminded me of Kate
Smith and Paganin-me  at their greatest.  The dash and the spirit and the
expitives of the whole supporting cast  cuppled with the homley, but spicey
settings, combined with really up to  he minute philosophy, and that too
coupled with a couple of other  things which include reviews of the private
life of royalty combined to  make the play quite good. Thank you thadius.

Harrietta Gohinskeeni—beheaded. Miss Gohinskeeni's death is  mourned
by the whole student body. Harrietta, a circus animal  trainer, attempted
to put her head in the mouth of the ferocious  Viking bull. The bull was at
that minute annoyed by a type louse,  and accidently bit Harrietta's head
off. Miss Gohinskeeni was a  member of the "Spinster's Cat and Parrot club"
