A most capable person's Ruth Heil,
With quite an enrapturing smile;

At history she's a star.

Surpasses the others far,
Fine phrases she can say off by the mile.

Though you hunt long you can't find a flaw
His bright hair like a magnet does draw;
Still his sister he takes about,
But if she can't "cut her out".
One of the Senior girls will jump into tin


It would pay Hazel K. to slop
To give her tired brain time to
She's successes not a few
In Y. \V.. Kaw. Review;
Rut best of all she can go like


You can depend on her doing any task.
But oh. what questions she can ask:

Why you can't mash peas?

Do cows ever sneeze?
Why some folks their faces don't mask?


For real pep he gets first rank:

If you want volume, pro to Fra

His whistles and mils

Are enough to shake walls.

Oh. he helps in many a prank.


Nobody works harder than Becke

It's a wonder her work doesn't wi
For running a May Fete,

Y ant find her mate;

Her head is a real double decker.

My, Rheva's a real true French shark.
She can conjugate verbs in the dark.
She's the most popular lass
Of the whole Junior class.
For she's strong for any kind of a lark.


She believes in the full rights of women.
Takes to law like a duck does to swimmin';

Of Dramatic Club's the head

But of her it must he said
That her beauty requires no more trimmin'.


He goes into Dramatics with zest,
Though at raising the money is best;

Of talk he's no lack.

But we pay him back.
For at the piano we give him no rest.


At chapel when Dean Bredin isn't there.
Our Gladys at the organ takes his chair.
She's pretty enough to paint.
And looks like a very saint.
Especially when the sun shines on her hair.


From Fairmont we stole her away.
We think we're more lucky than they.

She's nice and she's wise

And has lovely eyes.
We hope that she's come here to stay.

While teaching the Indians a year.

She learned how to run things 'tis clear;

She's line at debates.

And is one of the fates,
That in Student Council we fear.


She loves all the arts that are fine,
Though real fun is more in her line:
It's a picnic to hear
Her quoting Shakespeare,
Her smile is like golden sunshine.


At football they say he is great.

On the Kaw he works early and late.

But with girls he won't mix.

So he's in quite a fix.
When it comes to making a date.


Bing bang! What an unearthly noise!
Betty's car surely does lack the poise.

This same little maid

Of naught is afraid.
No wonder she's so liked by the boys


She talks as the French people do.

Her art is in Drama 'tis true:

Though the worst of slow-pokes
In the catching of jokes.

Her poise is enough t<» >\>> two.


Charles though little is mighty

But there is this about him, all rights - .

He needs a firm hand

To make him keep with the band
So he won't get all puerile and flighty.


In the orchestra she plays the bass viol.
To act perfectly innocent's her style.
But led on by brothers two
She plays pranks not a few.
And quite often her eyes sparkle with guile


Margaret is one of those quiet folks
Whose delight is to tell the best of jokes;
When she plays her violin
Even though the "dumps" they're in
Into a cheerful mood she can all coax.


She shines most in planning parties.
Though some say her hair outshines th
She'll sure make a go
Of the Junior Prom show.
There's no one that she doesn't please.


In the Glee Club sings he takes part.
At working up stunts he is smart.

The boys call him "Speed"

For fate so decreed.
That of girls he should e'er have head start.

For telling jokes Beth gets the prize
Though we're constantly wiping our
Her face is as straight
As at a meeting of state,
No wonder they say she is wise.


That he's a Junior is due to the w:

But we're mighty glad of the fact.

He first upheld the cause

Of our written unwritten laws.

At his jokes we laugh till we're so:

Our Marjora plain to he seen
Will reign a society queen.

She has a right pretty wit.

And knows how to use it.
Rut she never says anything mean.

Oh. she's happy

the da>

wonder that friends round her throng;
If there's aught you don't know
To Ruth you should go.
■ on all sorts of news she is strong.

Floyd Betts is certainly handsome,
And one would have to go-sum,-.

If he would dare
With him to compare;
I'm sure this will make him mad-



If anyone has a right to he vain.
That privilege we give to Dot Crane;

She edited this book.

And learned how to cook.
Without ever once growing profane.


A casual observer never would drear
That such a very dignified mien.

If tested

With "Why arrested?"
Is a mere sham, it would seem.


From a country that's far o'er the sea.
She came here to learn how to be
An engineer great
Though it's safe to relate
She's getting far more than a degree.


Here's to our dark-eyed French lass.
Whom we're proud to have in our class.
She's bright as can be.
And withal quite merry.
And has a smile for all those who pass.


As for our friend Walter Cole,
True nobody else is more droll;
And as he was born
On St. Valentine's morn.
His friends say a comic's his role.



Tho' she's pretty and smiles, boys, beware,
She has one soldier boy over there.
Since she found it was true,
That the Avar is all through,
The whole time she's been walking on air.


At tennis she makes a fine stand.
A school, no doubt, could command;

She plays on the fiddle;

You can't guess the riddle
Which in Phoebe's mind has been planned.


A splendid example of industry, true.

Of learning there are to compare only few,
But we would suggest
That to make him his best.

He take a vacation and play with the rest.


A fairy tale knight here you see.
Renowned for his prompt courtesy;

At last when he's in

The arts of medicine.
Will hearts be his one specialty?


A song-bird could not sing more sw
As it a spring morning did greet;

We're all held spellbound

In wonder profound,
By your glorious voice, Marguerite.




Happy-go-lucky Miss Shumate
Never worries though to classes she's late;
She just shakes her curls
But she beats all the girls
When it's a question of how to debate.


Ed Jones is a star at basketball.

When he plays how the enemy's spirits fall

He makes a nursemaid rare.

But 'tis his pretty cheeks and hair
That make the girls come at his beck and



Here's another Miss Owen by name.
Who has added her share to their fame;
These limericks silly
Were written by Milly,
Except this one across from her name.


This girl has proved the maxim old
That "everything that glitters is not gold",
Beside her heart so warm
And her smile that all does charm.
Her wealth is quite outshone a hundred-fold.


A spick and span man is Toll Ware,
From his shoes to the last strand of hair;
His sister he likes best
To have as his guest
Which is turning other girls pale with care.

In Memoriam.

President P. P. Womer.

"I with uncovered head
Salute the sacred dead
Who went, and who return not. Say not so!
Tis not the grapes of Canaan that repay
But the high Faith that failed not by the way;
Virtue treads paths that end not in the grave;
No ban of endless night exiles the brave;

And to the saner mind

We rather seem the dead that stayed behind."

hold in grateful remembrance the Washburn men who gave their
lives in the great conflict and we cherish for these men a great hope.
Seen from our side the loss of these devoted young lives looms large
as a catastrophe, mitigated only by their heroism and self sacrifice.
But over against our sense of loss we must place the outlook eternal. If we
can trust the vision of Jesus that the invisible and the spiritual are the real and
the permanent, that God lives and reigns at the heart of things, that His nature
is love and that He is our Father, that the way unto life is the way of sacrifice
and self-giving, then it follows just as surely as the day follows night that the
death of these men in a great cause in the spirit of a great consecration was
not disaster but in some way it was a coronation.

Writing to his mother from one of the battlefields of Europe, a gallant
young soldier expressed surprise at the calmness and serenity with which his
comrades met death. He said that it caused the mercury of his optimism to
rise up to see how they did it, and that lie was at a loss to discover the bigness
of the motive that supported them. And then, all unconsciously, this young
man answered his own query about the bigness of the motive that supported
his comrades by casually remarking. "After all. it is not when but how you
die that really matters."

'l"he truth is that when our brave men entered the service of the nation they
had for the most part definitely decided that life itself was not too great a price
to pay for the privilege of rendering the service to which they were summoned.
So when death summoned them they obeyed the summons with unsurprised
quietness. They had made once for all the great decision, and therefore when
death came they were ready.

They fell, we say, in the service of their country and humanity. Yes, to all
appearances they fell, hut

"They fell to rise
'1'1k\- were baffled to fight better

They sleep to wake."

Their task is far from ended. A completer existence is begun. They have
entered the ranks of a higher service. Their power of help is increased rather
than diminished. Thev still devote themselves to the cause of humanity.

To Tnem.

Where is a little valiant, shining song

That dares to travel far?
Beyond the sound of eastern temple gong

And all the seas that are —
Beyond the highest stars, and far beyond,

We know not even where —
Is there a joyous, shouting little song

That dares to travel there?
'That dares to bear upon its golden back

A burden quaint but dear —
Oh, zee should plan and till the mystic pack

With laugh and sudden tear.
Small things from the old smiling sunlit time,

The things that made a day —
A meadozv dozeer, a dusk, a sounding chime.

And szveet, glad friends, and play;
The little joys from work and laughter caught,

The love of simple hearts; —
Then all the best these sadder days have brought

These gifts from stings and smarts;
What zve have learned from sorrozv old and zvise

J That heights and depths we know,
What partial understanding anguish buys.

Our hearts' gold — these should go.
Oh, could zee find a shining, valiant song

That dared to travel far,
'That dared to bear a pack on journey long

Beyond the highest star —
We'd hold it in our hands a little while,

And kiss it, for its quest,
And watch it dim through many a sunset mile

Toward Them — into the JJ'cst.
