The two glee clubs of T.P.I. under the direction of Miss Tennie Alma Stanton, head of the music Department, are preparing to give this opera on May 18. The story of the opera is as follows; Fredic, when only a small child was apprenticed to a pirate chief until his twenty-first birthday. This was a through a mistake of his nurse, Ruth, who was told to apprentice him to a pilot. The first act begins with a band of pirates, who are celebrating Frederic’s twenty-first birthday, as he has now become a real pirate, and is an apprentice no longer. Frederic surprises them by saying that he is going to leave them s his apprenticeship is over. Ruth becomes very much alarmed and begs to accompany him as his wife. Frederic never having seen any other woman doesn’t know that she is old and ugly, and decides to marry her. Then the voices of young maidens are heard, and when Frederic sees the difference between them and Ruth, he renounces his old nurse. He is charmed with the beauty of the young girls and offers himself to any one of them. Then all refuse him except Mabel who loves and pities him. As Mabel Frederic and the girls are planning to get away the pirates appear. Each () seizes a girl and they announce that they think this is a first rate opportunity to get married. The Major-General, who is the father of the girls, comes in and asked them to have pity on his lonely state, as he is an orphan and would miss his lovely daughters. So now, it is one of the pirates rules never to harm an orphan, so they release them. In the second act the girls are trying to console their father –the pirates have learned that he has told a terrible story about being an orphan and they are planning to attack again. Frederic is willing to help the Major-General and his daughters as he is now free from the pirates, so with a company of policemen, he prepares to fight the pirates. Then the pirate King and Ruth come to tell Frederic that he is still apprenticed to the pirates for he was born on Feburary 29, and that his twenty-first birthday will not be reached until 1940. Frederic, who has a keen sense of duty goes back to the band. The pirates creep up to the hiding place of Major-General and when they are discovered there is a struggle between them and the police. The police are overcome by pirates who in the turn give up to the police as they are asked to surrender in the name of the Queen. Ruth then discloses a secret: the pirates are all noblemen who have gone wrong. The Major-General then willingly gives his daughters to the expirates who plan to resume their legislative duties. The cast of characters is as follows: Richard, the pirate King; James Green. Frederic, the pirate apprentice; Oyama Winningham Major-General Stanley, of the British Army; Robert Smith Edward, Sergeant of Police; Leonard Crawford.

The banquet table had as its centerpiece a beautiful basket of purple iris, Cutt glass candle sticks tied with purple ribbon held gold candles, spaced along the middle of the table. Place cards and menu cards carried out the purple and gold color-scheme, of the table decorations and the menu was in harmony with it. Miss Hazel Wall, the efficient editor-in-chief of the “Oracle” for the past year was toastmistress for the occasion. Mr. J.M. Hatfield faculty advisor, who has been loyal, faithful and has rendered much aid to the Staff, was the first speaker of the evening; He started the program with a “peppy” talk in which he commended the work of the past year and gave hopes for a successful future. Next Harry Burrows gave a unique lecture, “At The Bat” which showed his skill at making and delivering speeches, Then, Miss Lucile Lee caused an uproar of merriment when she told “The Joke of The Scar.” Next on program was Robert Smith who sang to the accompaniment of his ukulele a number of popular songs. Appreciation of his singing was shown by requests for more, to which he gallantly responded.

He has been the untiring circulating manager and gives promise of a more active future. These newly elected Staff members will select their assistants at the opening of Fall term of 1927. They are excellent students, true workers, and highly deserving the honor which has been bestowed upon them. The evening’s entertainment was concluded with an extemporaneous speech from each member of the Staff who had not appeared on the program. With much trembling and merriment the banquet was concluded and the Staff proclaimed it was the biggest, best and jollied banquet ever had by a “Tech Oracle” Staff. 160 Students Enrolled at Beginning of Spring Short Term The enrollment of the Tennessee Polytechnic Institute is the largest in its history, the freshman college class alone having a greater number of students than were enrolled in the entire college department last year. One hundred and sixty students from various countries over the state were enrolled during the last week, making a total enrollment for the year of five hundred and sixty. The Senior College Class has thirty-four enrolled at president, the second year college forty-five, the first year college class, two hundred and sixty-seven, the fourth year high school class seventy-eight, and the third year high school class seventy-two. All the dormitories are filled to their capacity and many students are boarding in town. A large number come from the near-by towns every day, some driving twenty-five miles. Annual Picnic to be Held on May 24 The annual picnic this year will be at Ozone and Waldensia on the edges of Cumberland and Roane Counties. The places selected are noted for their mild mountain scenery. Beautiful falls are at Ozone and a deep lake for swimming and fishing is at Waldensia. Probably the latter place will be visited during the forenoon and Ozone later. Perhaps a stop of one hour will be made at Crossville on the return trip. As usual, Mr. Hamilton, Tennessee Central Agent at Cookeville is doing all he can to make the train service as excellent as possible. “Ezra, tomorrow is our 25th wedding anniversary; hadn’t we better kill a chicken?” “Why punish the chicken for what happened 25 years age?” Most of the fire in the modern girl’s eye is quenched by the water on their brain.

Tech and the Upper Cumberland What has Tennessee Tech meant to this section of the state? First of all it has furnished work for ambitious students above the high school. The teaching ranks of the Upper Cumberland section have been strengthened and revitalized by this institution. Students go out to places of leadership in their respective communities with a broader, deeper vision and a profound sense of their responsibility in this new social and economic order; and above all they have the training commensurate with the task before them. The Upper Cumberland is rapidly undergoing a change or a series of changes which vitally affect our social, political, and economic life. The rising generation is putting new blood into the fight, the added punch that brings victory is coming from the students of today. Tech is responsible for most of this. We are breaking away from the old moorings of superstition, hide-bound precedent, and intellectual, social, and religious bigotry and intolerance. What is bringing about this new social order? Education. Free and unhampered education is doing more for our people today than any other force. Tech is the center of this educational system in this section and deserves most of the credit for the improvement that has been made. The fact that this institution has outgrown its buildings and equipment is proof that students from half the counties of Tennessee, and four other states realize the opportunities this school has to offer. In the very nature of things the Upper Cumberland has been benefitted more than remote sections. Students have been able to come here for their high school and college work when the opportunity was denied them elsewhere, due chiefly to the economic factor, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute is the greatest force in this section of the state for its material development. I make this statement without fear of a successful contradiction. Our Alma Mater has been to us an oasis in an educational desert, a light-house set on a hill, a power house and a revitalization force such as never touched our lives before. When we leave her, let us be true and ever remember what she has done for. Our debt is heavy. Let us pay it in service to our people. Statistics These wonderful statistics! They tell us now that Colleen Moore, movie star, gets 15,00 “fan letters” every month; Clara Bow, 11,000; and Mary Pickford only 2,000. Lon Chaney, strange to say, leads the male list for letter totals, with John Gilbret and Richard Dix close behind. Ten per cent of this mail comes from people of Polish extraction. They want the pictures that are always sent in return. Many of them never go to the films, it is said, and gets their information from the posters –but a postcard brings a beautiful picture. These photographs, wrapping, and mailing cost the motion picture companies twelve cents each. The large companies pay this charge for their prominent stars, but pity the poor independent who has to foot her own expenses in order to keep “her public” contended. George Sidney, Oliver Borden, and others set side $250 weekly for this purpose –Outlook. $150,000 Appropriated for New Buildings The general Appropriation Bill which was recently passed by the Legislature gives to T.P.I. $150,000 for buildings and $110,000 per year or maintenance. It has not been determined what buildings this fund will be used for, as the State Board of Education will have charge of the building program, but it is thought that a science building, a dining hall and cafeteria, and a gymnasium will be erected. There are some prospects of having an observation school on the campus before very long. This, with $5,000 worth of new library books which are to be added soon, will make the Tennessee Polytechnic Institute a complete teachers training institution. Donald Moore Wins Gold Medal on Essay Donald Moore a student in the department of Vocational Agriculture of the Tennessee Polytechnic Institute won the gold medal offered for the best essay by any student studying agriculture under Smith-Hughes teachers of vocational agriculture or any other club member in the 4-H Clubs in Middle Tennessee.

Flora Montgomery –Reporter Algood Grab Game from Reserves Coming from a 3 run lead to win in the 9th, Algood took a strange game from the Reserves by noising out by a 7 to 8 score Monday afternoon April 25, the game being played on their own pasture. That right-about-face ball game should never have been, the Reserves should have won it in the regular nine acts, 7 to 4, maby 7 to 5 or 6. As the second guessers would sum it up, the Algooders should never have been allowed to persecute Gates until the count was even tied, after he had been staed to a 3 run lead by Watson through the first 7 innings. Score by innings: Reserves 002 020 300-7 Algood 200 020 004-8 Upper Cumberland and Palladian Literary Sociteies The Upper Cumberland and Palladian Literary Societies met in the auditorium on Monday afternoon, April 25, for a joint program. A very delightful musical program with dramatic presentation of the following popular songs was rendered: “That’s a Good Girl” –Elsie Young and Agnes Greenwood, Chorus –Robert Smith “Mary Lou” –Lauren O’Dell and Agnes Greenwood, Chorus-Mary Ellen Rash. “I Never See Maggie Alone” –Robert Smith and Mary Ellen Rash. Chorus –Beulah Allison. “Sunday” –Robert Smith and Mary Ellen Rash. Chorus –Dannie Wright Jarvis. Declamations by Donald Moore and Elmo Willeford were also interesting features on the program, which was concluded by several numbers by the Upper Cumberland and Palladian Orchestra. These two societies extend a cordial invitation to all new students to visit their meetings at any time and assure each one a hearty welcome. Reserves Trim Celina A day in which all the characteristics of an ideal baseball day were lacking, did not keep the Tech Reserves and Celina apart, April 21. The Reserves administrated a 8 to 6 drebbing. A goodly number of errors were piled up on either side and it was somewhat of a tug-of-war affair to see which individual player could make the most errors. The Reserves did the greater part of their scoring while the game was young and the visitors brought up their end of the scoring largely in the latter part of the game. Score by innings: Celina 000 110 002—6 Reserves 303 110 000—8 Tech Wins 4 to 3 From Union Coach Overall’s baseball team won a close game from Union University April 20 with a score of 4 to 3. Moss started on the mound for the Eagles and pitches a good brand of ball until he was released by Summers in the 6th to save his arm. A feature of the game was three straight two-sackers hit by Winningham, K. Evans, and Nixon in the third inning which brought in two scores. Behind the almost air-tight pitching of Moss the Eagles grabbed off a lead and held it throughout the game. The game to be played the following day was canceled due to too great amount of moisture in the atmosphere. Score by innings: Union 100 010 100—3 Tech 102 000 100—4 Bethel Breaks Tech’s Line of Victories Lefty Summer’s string of victories came to an untimely and to a large extent, unjustifiable termination, Saturday afternoon April 30, at Bethel College, the Kentuckyans taking adcantage of a cross-eyed umpire and of some fielding remissness. The eagles were only able to get 3 hits off the Kentucky pill slinger. The play of both teams slumped in the fielding and off-color base running cut down the score to 2 to 1. There be those days when the best ball players go cross-eyed and so ‘tis with some umpires. Score by innings. Tech 000 000 100—1 Bethel 000 020 000—2 Jokes “How would you like to sign up with me for a life game?” said Arlie “I’m agreeable”, said Rebecca “where’s the diamond?” M. Foster: --“here’s where you missed Manganese.” Adelle Crowder: --“I don’t know Miss Manganese.” Jobe: --“I’m just debating whether to give you a book or a kiss. Which would you rather have?” Shiela: --“I can’t read.” Harry Burrow: --“How come you’re all wet?” Alenn Scott: --“I fell in a barrel of cider.” H.B.: --“Didja get hurt?” A.S.: --“No, it was soft cider.” Preacher: --“Have you heard the story about the wicked flea? Dumbbell: “Well?” Preacher: --“The wicked flee when no man pursueth.” Elderly Newsdealer: -“Evening Sun?” Small Boy: --“Evening, Sir.” Dean Smith: --“I’m a man of few words.” Mr. Lane: --“I know. I’m married too.” “He done me wrong,” wailed the algebra problem, as the freshman handed in his exam paper. Don’t buy thermometers now. They will be lower next winter. “This being good is too much trouble.” “Yeah, it’s too much like carrying life insurance; you have to die to get anything out of it.” “What an iinocent girl she is.” Yeah; it has taken her years to acquire that innocence.” “Twinkle, twinkle, cheap cigar, how I wonder what you are.”
