Seniors Visit St. Louis.
On Friday, October 21, a party
composed of twenty Seniors, Me
chanicals and Electricals, and six
Junior Electricals were given a ten
day’s leave of absence to make an
inspection trip to the World’s
Fair at St. Louis. The party ac
companied the football team and
rooters to Pittsburg where they
waited to see the State —W. & J.
game. Saturday morning was given
to a visit to the Westinghouse es
tablishment where the bunch was di
vided into squads and given to the
care of old State men as guides.
These were Gerwig, ’O2, Heck and
Colvin, ’O4. Saturday night most
of the fellows attended the different
heatres to their liking.
Sunday morning at 2.10 all were
due at Union Depot —so was the
tram. The train was late —so were
some of the fellows, but three o’clock
found all united on the way to St.
Louis. It was a tired bunch and soon
all were quiet. There was a general
awakening on the prairies in the
morning. The trip through Ohio,
Indiana and Illinois was very inter
esting as we caught up with a ‘ ‘flock
of buffalo” on a “patch of prairie
dogs.” St. Louis was sighted at
7.10 p. m. and Cummings and Cul
bertson, both ex-05, were there to
guide the Seniors to their rooms on
Pine street.
While at St. Louis during the day
the different sections would meet
their respective division officers at
9.30 a. m, at appointed places and
proceed to study the various things
of interest until about three in the
afternoon. In this way were seen
the advantage of the most interest
ing and up-to-date works in mechan
ical and electrical engineering. The
inspecting students had in many
cases advantages which the ordi
nary sight-seer had not —that of
special demonstration. This was
due to the work and management of
Profs. Reber and Jackson who de
serve great credit for the way in
which they scheduled the places of
most interest to their 'respective
Monday night all were tired and,
as the rule, retired early. But on
Tuesday night they “hit the Pike”
in a bunch. Occasionally running
opposition to the shouters and songs
ters by yells or songs these gay stu
dents were given free passes in order
to get rid of their noise. They slid
the “helter-skelter” and flew the
‘ ‘flying machine’ ’ at half price for
two rides in one. In short they
were an advertisement for many of
the shows.
Saturday night they viewed a
Democratic parade for which the
city gave a smoker. The smoke
was so dense that the parade was in
invisible. At 11.35 there was a rush
for the train at Union Station and
twenty-five hours travel constituted
the final number on the program.
Seguine (.o a guard)—“Say do
they keep the “pike” in the U. S.
Fish & Fisheries Building?”
Bennett —Say, fellows, I wonder
when they will feed the lagoons?”
A Kansas farmer to NcNary.—
“Hey, little fellow, how did they git
this Ferris wheel from Chicago?”
McNary —“I dont know, but I
think they rolled it.”
“Cy” Johnson and Beck were
running to catch a street car, —
“Cy” got on but “Call” didn’t.
Seeing that he was alone, “Cy”
jumped off like a woman, lit like a
pile-driver and Beck went into hys
Even Eshleman went to the Al
Shorty Christman —‘ ‘Which build
ing is the Ferris wheel in?”
Bausman walked so much that he
got sore feet. While at the Stand
ard Theatre that evening he said,
“To save my sole I believe I’ll have
to take off my shoes.”
“Potts” (at Pittsburg)—“l wish
I’d brought my drum along, I might
have ‘beat’ my way out to St.
