Thirty HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1912 Four years have past-long and laborious ones they have seemed when in the Fall of 1908 our class entered the portals of good, old Albright. But, now as we ap- proach the day of Commencement and gaze out upon the large vista of life in the future, we feel that these college years have been all too short. The Seniors have had their joys and their sorrows during these four years and now as we are about to finish our school life it is with a sigh of regret that we record the last history of the class of 1912. And what a history this class has had. From the time we reached Albright until now we have been busy doing deeds which will mark 1912 as a memorable class in college history. When we were Freshmen we valiantly contended with the Sophs and bravely held our own at the Flag Scrap and the Banquet. When we were Sopho- mores we gave the Freshmen strenuous exercise throughout the year and added their "grand rag" to our collection of trophies. After our Sophomore year we no longer participated in class scraps, but turned our attention to the cultivation of such dignity and stateliness as is'beHtting upper-classmen. Occasionally, however, our old love of mischief would betray itself and we would engage in some merry pranks and then become again the dignified Juniors. So our Junior year passed away and we entered upon the last term of our college life. Senior orations and theses loomed dark upon our horizon and we set to work in dead earnest.. We became serious-eyed and thought- ful and devoted ourselves to those tasks which must be accomplished before we could win the coveted sheep-skin. Now the end is soon at hand-a few more weeks and we can don cap and go-wn and receive the diplomas we have striven so long to secure. As we View the past we believe that in spite of the many failures we have made, we have brought lustre to the name of Albright and honor to our class. bday the year of 1912 be a bright spot in Albright's history, and may the class be ever true to her Alma lblater and herself. Though far away we will never cease to honor and revere the college we so love. To others we consign the task of upholding her fair name as we have endeavored to do, during our course. And, though we as a class will separate and allow others to occupy the place we now enjoy "Still will our hearts in memory cling To those college days of long agof' ALFRED lX'lILLARD KUDER, Historian. Thirty-One CLASS POEM --1912 The broad, white highway teems with lifeg Unnumbered men go by. And we As yet unstained by travel dust, Stand by and watch the crowd move on, Note how each bears his load, how looks His eye upon his fellow's pain Gr joyg who travel sore, complainsg Who cheerfully plods on, with smiles To aid another one, forgets His own distress. Whom we admire VVe fain would travel with. Look ye, There go a band of merry folk. No burdens they of good or ill To bearg each with a laugh pass by The toilers on the way. If we Were of their throng, we'd waive aside The hands outstretched imploring aid, Refuse the load of Earthls grim woe, Alike with it, the goodly thingsg Weld have no shoulder trained to lift The treasured gold from mines beyond The distant hillsg no tent to pitch By cool wave's brim when even comes. Shall we join with the merry folk? Ah, no, 'tis better far to have The mingled good and ill than naught Of either one. We look elsewhere For those whose ranks we'll join. Here come Some stalwart travelers, strong of limb, Their shoulders Ht the load with ease, Their feet well shod, their hands grasp Staves. The highway offers them no strain. They forward press to where dark cliffs Loom bare and jagged to the sight. Theirs is the hope to skirt the brink Of yawning chasms Where the gold Rolled down by mountain torrents, lies. They see no need of those they pass. Parched lips beg water. Shall the strong . Pause in the march and bend themselves To tasks that any hand may do? No! let the weaker ones, less fit For rapid progress, golden gains, Draw water from the wells and give. They travel on. Our eyes light up With admiration for their strength. Our own hopes gleam on visions fairy The strength of youth and strong desire To show some prowess on the way Would urge us down to join their throng. Thirty-Two Tlzirty-Three But stop, gaze down upon the mass Of those who, travel worn, despair, And fainting, sink beside the way. . The pain of stricken men smites us With its dull woe. Whence have we hearts To feel and eyes to see their need If not for us to aid? What good A piled-up treasure sack to us If more than we can use we glean, Down in the dusty road, lift up The man whose strength is almost spent, The wells are deep, strong arms and ropes Of truth we need to -draw therefrom, The power to fill their cups is ours, To quench another's thirst, to feed The famine stricken-this The best use to be made of strength And truth and God's free gift of life. For see, far down the vale Where gleams Scarce one faint ray of sunlight warm, The highway ends-a cold dull stream Rolls its full tide for all to cross. Each one must pitch his evening tent Beside the bank, lay down the load He guarded thither with such care, Divest himself of traveler's garb, And all alone the waters cross. Who so has wasted strength to drag A treasure useless to him now, Exhausted, strikes the wave in vain, The shore beyond he cannot reach. But he whose limbs have gained more strength In toil that helped his brother on, lVIay brave the current valiantly. The broad, dark wave lights up for him, A swimmer strong, he gains the shore Beyond, where the eternal sun Shines on him ever. So be ours O class of IQI2 to end The traveled way in triumph full. The call of service rings to us, The needy of the world press near. Qur stores are full, ours is the wealth A hundred generations stored. The brimming cup we well may turn To cool a thirstier lip, to bless The one whose need is deeper far Than we have ever known. 0 well The Words ring clear to guide us on 3- "Not what we give, but what we share, The gift without the giver is bare, Who feeds the starving beggar feeds three- Himself, his hungry neighbor and me."

' Fo rty JUNIOR HISTORY The Fall of 1909 saw the present Juniors matriculate as verdant Freshmen. Not prone to be superstitious, it nevertheless seemed to be a case of remarkable coincidences that we, the Class of II3, should have entered college on the 13th day of September. with an enrollment of fifteen: +13 of whom were of the sterner sex. In our Flag Scrap with the Sophs fthe Class of ,125 we lost the much-prized "bunting" only after a fierce battle had been waged, in which '13 covered itself with glory, and showed to the Sophs that it was game to the finish. Shortly after this event two of our number left college, thus reducing the total membership of the class to 13. . During our verdant, though happy, days, we were a constant source of annoyance to the guardians of our mental and spiritual welfare-the Faculty. It was our one consuming ambition to let pandemonium reign, and keep "the powers that bel' on the quiz fvieirf and "in so far" we were successful. About this time the tomb-stones, with their appropriate and carefully-worded epitaphs, mysteriously appeared in the Chapel one morning, and of course we were accused of the terrible crime. Whether we were guilty or not may, perhaps--who knows ?-be revealed in the future, when the scroll of our deeds is unrolled. The sad, sad part of this affair was that the next day our steward had a badly-mashed finger. We again suffered considerably, numerically, at the end of the Freshman year, but the acquisition of several conservatory students during the Sophomore year, again brought the enrollment up to 13. This year was one enjoyed to the utmost by all the revelling Sophs. Our Hfeedl' on the evening of Nov. 15, 1910, and especially our banquet at the Imperial Cafe, Reading, on Friday night, Feb. IO, 1911, caused con- sternation and chagrin to the horde of measly Freshmen who had vowed that we could never do it. Such pleasant reminiscences make us wish that We again were care-free, hedonistic Sophomores. With the present year, began the gradual laying aside of anything that is frivolous or beneath Junior dignity. The Hedonism of Freshman and Sophomore standing, gave way to a well-grounded belief in Fnergism. Trips to the Prexy's office, requests for private interviews Cso interestingj, invitations to appear before investigating com- mittees, et cetera, are, at present, quite as rare as they formerly were frequent. Like a wrecked ship, that gradually sinks into the calm billows without a ripple above it to mark the spot where it once was, so our I-Iedonism, of Freshman and Sophomore standing, was inundated by a well-grounded belief in Energism. In point of mere numbers, we are lacking yet, though our class is the smallest in college its quality can- not be denied. The persevering effort and unflagging Zeal which so strongly char- acterize the class, give it a staunchness and firmness of character that cannot help but be of service to its members in after-life, and, true to our motto: "Know thy opportun- ity," we will rise on the stepping stones of the past to higher things.

Bow thine ear to instruction and obtain knowledge from example. Lo! in the beginning, when the present Sopho- more class arrived at Albright, a great commotion was aroused among the upperclass men, dismay and consternation was seen to appear in the faces of the Juniors, and their t6Z11'S became as rivers of water. Why should the noble and honorable upperclass men be thus affected? Behold, the class of ,I4 appeared a horde of green barbarians. What was to be done? Who was to save Albright from this affliction? The state of affairs became unsettled, the Sophomores, then Freshmen, hardly knew how to act, thick and palpable clouds of darkness constituted the atmosphere of the college, and, the time became known as the dark and storm age of affliction. VVho were to teach these verdant vandals their rightful place? The juniors have already confessed that they did their very best to correct the manners of this anomalous crowd of unsightly beings, but, in despair, they gave up the ghost and consigned to the incoming Freshmen class Cusj, this most enjoyable duty. The appearance of the present Freshmen class, the cream of our present-day youth, instantly restored order. The clouds of darkness and delusion were immediately dispelled, the spirit of Albright College was raised to a higher pitch, and the fame of the Freshmen class Cus againj as the incentive and stimulus to this movement of prosperity, was propagated far and wide. First of all, in our endeavor to carry out the work bequeathed to us by the Juniors, we thought it best to acquaint the Sopbomores with the relations Cof which they had a wrong conceptionj existing between them and ourselves. Accordingly. one bright morning, at about 4 o'clock, we put up posters, on which a representative of each class was depicted in his rightful colors: the Freshman as a thoroughbred and versatile young man of the world, and the Sophomore as an Indian squaw, an old de- generate drudge. The Sophomores very meekly received this information Qand in- struction from usb. Also, they never tried to tear the posters down, so they remained pasted on the walls several days for their edification. The next affair between the Freshmen and the Sophomores was the class fight. in which the Sophomores were ignominiously beaten and our superiority over them fully established. All other contests had the same result, especially was this true in basketball. The Sophomores strutted around, boasting of what they would do in this game. "You don't stand a ghost of a show," they said, but how quickly we un- deceived them, and again showed our superiority over them, One night, after a basketball game, with timidity and fear in their hearts, the Sophomores stole away from the Freshmen, who never bothered their heads about them, and rode to Lebanon on a wagon, in back of two mules, which were the most appropriate animals that could be gotten for the occasion. After feasting, as they expressed it, on some foreign stuff consisting of damagable goods and half a cup of coffee, they returned to their cribs and reposed in peace until noon of the next day. Evans never strutted around and boasted of his deeds as did the Sophomores that day. But how small and insignificant an affair this was in comparison to the Freshmen ban- quet at York. As the Barmecide's Feast was to Belshazzar's, so can the Sophomores' feed be compared to the Freshmen banquet, Thus, you see, O readers, how superior the Freshmen are to the Sophomores, and, since compositions of quality are ever subject to the censures of ill-meaning and dis- contented persons, I humbly crave that it may be approved by the intelligent and well- meaning students of whom Albright boasts.

Tice Harriet Woodring FRESHMEN REFLECTED IN A SOPHOMORE MIRROR With the pressing of the rolls out of their trousers, and the doffing of green caps to all upper classmen, the Freshmen made their debut into college life. They began their journey. through the valley of Inexperience, which, leading to the hills of Foolish Wisdom and Cupidls Plateau, finally emerges into the broad and turbulent ocean of Lifels Commencement. Very ably did N. W. Gensemer succeed in driving the thirty-two young colts over their rough road until they obtained a proper sense of college equilibrium. Only by skillful managing did this team make any progress. Soon recovering from the effects of their initiation, the freshness of the team began to manifest itself. Conse- quently it became necessary for the Sophomores to issue posters forbidding any fast or reckless driving or any other ungainly actions on the part of the debutants. Grad- ually in the distance the clouds of custom began to gather, and everyone awaited the great crisis when the true test of worth would be placed upon this heterogenous and incoherent mass of varieties and variations of homo sapiens. On September 19, 1911, came the awaited hour. It was a conflict between quantity and quality. The herd of colts were scattered from their Hag pole four times, and as often did the Sophomores begin to ascend the pole, only to be overpowered by numbers. lllere quantity secured a triumph, and the Sophomores went down to an honorable defeat. The first triumph, however, was a poor indication of the athletic abilities of the class. In the inter-class meet, they did not have the courage to face their opponents and the Sophomores got every point to their credit. In baseball, they could do no more than tie the games. Then also came the day when quality obtained its sweet re- venge. At nine-thirty on Friday evening, February 9th, sharp and keen wits triumphed over the incongruous and disorganized mass of beef inertia, for it was then that the victorious Sophomores started on their trip to Lebanon. The annual banquet held at the Hotel VVeimar was a decided success. Deep were the fraughts of jest and jollity, and ever pleasant the memories thereof. Such a victory was not to be passed uncelebrated. With the rising of the sun on the following day, the college chapel rang with all the melodies of song blended into one grand and glorious chorus of triumph. Attempted imitation was but natural for those who follow in the well trodden paths of another's success, but terrible the penalty, when Law discovers violations. Selecting a time best suited for violation of law, the colts left in the depth of night, twenty-four hours before the time of their banquet at York, on February 16, 1912. This night was scheduled for a catalog date, and yet the Freshman were missing. The Faculty did not overlook the violation, and when the Freshmen returned, they had al- ready been sentenced. The sentences were: private interviews with the President Cter- rible thingsj, ghastly dreams of demeritsg and inexcusable overcuts for every class missed that day. Thus endeth the record of a class that might have been the greatest class in the history of Greater Albright, but still we must live in hope that some day history may have a page of honor for the achievements of the Class of 1915.

Fifty-six times has she sent out into the world her sons, who have proved themselves an honor to her name and an honor to the institution. The Omnipotent Creator of nature and the Architect of the world, has impressed man with a wonderful characteristic. God has given man a faculty whereby we distinguish him from all other animals, that is the faculty of speech. From the earliest period of human life, down to our present era, man has endeavored to draw forth the beauty of the'mind by developing this faculty so as to express thoughts in the most pleasing and harmonious manner. The Excelsior Literary Society was organized to develop the natural ability of speaking and to culti- vate oratory. Her progress was slow but sure. With stern discipline she has trained her sons to be fluent speakers and masters in parliamentary law. lVIost fittingly did the founders of Excelsior choose for her motto "Higher," This motto has aided a great deal to her success. To this motto she has always proved faithful. This year she sends forth seven worthy representatives, but, the fact that over a score have been added to her number during the past year, proves that Excelsior is mounting "higher," A11 indications point to a bright future for the society. With a glorious past, and a present of an ambitious group of students with their watchword "Higher" ever before them 'tis needless to add what a still more glorious future awaits Excel- sior. ALFRED MILLARD KUDER '12. I Sixty-One THE NEOCOSMIAN LITERARY SOCIETY The Neocosmian CNEOS-new, KOSMOS-creation or orderj Literary Society was organized on the I'I th day of January, 1858, by eighteen young men attending Union Seminary at New Berlin, Pa. Among the number was Thos. R. Orwig, son of the President of the Seminary. , The difficulties and troubles attending the launching of any new organization were by no means absent in the case of the Neocosmians, but by persistent effort and endeavor the Society was soon placed on a firm footing. After considerable appealing to the Faculty, a hall was finally secured in the building, which was set apart for the Society. This was occupied in llilarch, of 1860. About this time a library became an imperative necessity-since the Seminary had practically none at all-and, accordingly, a movement was inaugurated for the col- lection of suitable volumes. The success attending this effort was largely, if not al- together, due to the untiring labors of one who saw the Society's need, and who has since gained national fame. I refer to that loyal Neocosmian, E. A. Hoffman-since the Rev. E. A. Hoffman, a prominent minister of the Congregational denomination in Ohio, and known as the author of many excellent Sunday-school song-books, and a composer of music in general. On commencement day of 1863 the Society was adjourned for two years owing to the great war-cloud, which hung at its lowest about this time. The Seminary re-opened in the Fall of 1865, but one Neocosmian had given up his life on the battlefield, in order that Old Glory might float without a stain. Thos. R. Orwig, sergeant in the Federal Army, had fought his last fight, "taps" had sounded plaintively over his body as it was laid to rest, but he was awakened by "reveille', on the Great Battlefield beyond. Meanwvhile, a charter had been obtained, in 1864, from the Union County court, vesting in the Society the privileges of a corporation. In lVIarch, 1887, the school's name was changed from Union Seminary to Central Penna. College, and in the Fall term of the year following, by special action of the Society, the young lady students were admitted to active membership. Up to this time a custom had prevailed in the various literary societies, of elect- ing a representative for the annual commencement program. With the close of the year 1887-88, however, this custom was abandoned. W. E. Weidensaul represented the Neocosmians at this commencement. The Society continued to prosper, and in 1902, coincident with the union of Central Penna. and Albright Colleges at lN'Iyerstown, Pa., under the name of Albright College, was transferred from New Berlin to lVIyerstown, where it has become one of the vital factors in the literary life of the student body of Albright College. ln closing, let us say that we have had our crises-times when the very life of the Society was at stake-but there always was a Neocosmian who was able to meet the crisis, and avert impending disaster. We shall always honor and respect such men as J. T. Smith, lVlahlon Custer and others who have thus assured the Society's con- tinuance, and who have fostered a spirit within us-a spirit indescribable-that is leading us ever onward. P. J.

Under his able direction, a constitution was drawn up and the Society became actively a part of our educational institution. There were seven original members, of whom three are as yet enrolled, namely: Miss lVlabel Woodring, and the llflisses lvliriam and Pearl Bowman. The Themisian Society is in reality an offshoot of the Neocosmian, the separation taking place on account of the disadvantages of the old Neocosmian hall as to situation. A large element of the Themisian membership is transitory, because it enrolls many students of special departments, and the benefit of more than two or three years' training is obtained by few. But this in reality is no serious hindrance to excellent work. The surprisingly short time in which the new members work up to par, and the loyalty ofall in good service for the Society decidedly offsets what seems at first a disadvantage. Be it a student regularly enrolled in the academic department, or one taking voice, piano, art, or elocution, each girl fulfils her place' on the program and her effort is highly acceptable. The Themisian Literary Society has just completed its seventh successful year of work, each year the programs show greater excellence, each member greater loyalty. We may safely look forward in the years to come to a progressive society, mindful of its motto, true to the spirit within, "Una in amore, more, ore, re." Sixty-Five N K N N , I 'a L THE SCIENCE SEMINAR The Science Seminar is as yet a young organization in our college, but it is one which promises to be very beneficial. Its purpose as expressed in the constitution is. "To promote scientific study and research among teachers, students and Alumni of Albright College." Its aim is not to produce specialists in any one branch of science, but rather to unite for the study of different sciences. The Science Seminar has represented in it all the sciences in the curriculum, viz: Astronomy, Economics, Geology, Chemistry, Biology, lVIathematics, Physics, Physiol- ogy, Psychology and Sociology. llflembers of the Seminar notify the Program Com- mittee in which section they Wish to Work, and are assigned subjects of special study in the departments of their choice. The meetings occur every Friday at 31 OO P. M. At each meeting at least one special phase of some department of science is treated in a paper or address by one of the members and further discussion is carried on by the society at large. The organization is proving of great benefit to its members and to the college. It stimulates a deeper interest in science among students and professors. Besides it has a stimulating effect in bringing together persons who are specializing in different sciences, and this broadens their interests and views through the special efforts of per- sons in different departments. If the Seminar continues to grow in interest and efficiency in the future as it has during the brief period of its existence, it will not only prove benehcial to Albright, but will do its share in making contributions to the cause of science.

E l The Cleric is the ministerial organization of Albright. It was organized some years ago, and its interests ever since have been increasing. Among many organiza- tions of the college, this is possibly the only one which affords direct practical, ethical, and theological culture to the student. The history of this organization is interesting, its purpose is helpful and its work beneficial. During the last few years the importance of the Cleric has been somewhat overlooked. VVhy such should have been the state of affairs we do not know. But still it is noteworthy that some of the men who are occupying the foremost pulpits of our church, as well as others who were once members of our Cleric, attribute a large amount of their efficiency to inspiration received in our body. We realize to-day as never before, that in order to have success in this noblest, yet humblest of vocations, one must be armed in the best possible manner. The purpose of the Cleric is to solve by discussion the many perplexing problems that vex the mod- ern preacher. These discussions certainly prove very helpful when the days of testing come. The Cleric was reorganized this year with Elmer R. Hart as President. The various addresses given during the year were especially helpful. Dr. Fluck was before the organization early in the year and discussed in an open way some of the diflicult questions which members of the Cleric asked. Prof. Stauffer gave two talks, the first on baptism, the second in the interests of the Whiteis Bible School of New York. Rev. Brunner, of Reading, delivered a lecture on "The comparative value of Theolog- ical Studies." Bishop Dubs closed the year's work by a talk on "The Problems of the Young lVIan Entering the lVIinistry." All the meetings have been very inspiring and interesting. Seventy-Eight H. D.

Soon after the Student Volunteer Convention held at Toronto that same Spring, Mr. C. C. Talbott, '03, who, together with Miss Carrie Wengert, '03, had been a delegate to that gathering, signed the Volunteer pledge. Then followed Mr. NI. E. Ritzman, '01 3 later Nliss Wengert, Mr. C. S. Hoffman, '07, Mr. Q. A. Dech, '04, and lVIr. Hendricks. These six effected an organization and were the charter members of the band. The purposes of the organization were those expressed in the pledge care, viz: that, unless prevented by some cause clearly of God's direction, the members would go to the foreign mission Held, and furthermore would make every consistent effort to prepare themselves for the work of a missionary. The Band has held to these purposes from the very beginning. - , Since its inception, the Band has experienced various degrees of success. The spiritual tone of the organization has, on the whole, been good and uniform. In num- bers, however, there have been fluctuation with each succeeding year. The greatest number belonging to it at one time was ten, during the school year of 1907-'O8. Be- cause of a number of untoward circumstances, by the year 1910-'1f1 the number had dropped to two. The same reasons continuing, the Band remained in this condition until the opening of the present school year. VVith this event there came also a new inspiration for endeavor, and as a consequence, there was a reorganization on Dec. Io, 1911, with Mr. I. E. Roth, '12, leader, Miss Ruth Gensemer, '15, sec'yg Mr. D. R. Kauffman, '13, treas. Later lvlr. J. A. Heck, A. P. S. 712, and lVIr. S. M. Short, '12, joined the Band. The following have served in order as presidents: lllr. C. C. Talbott, '03, Mr. C. W. Guinter, '05, Mr. C. S. Hoffman, '07, Miss Elvira lVI. Strunk, '08, lVIiss Martha L. Leininger, '09, and Mr. T. E. Roth, '12. Of those who were members while students at Albright, the following have gone into the foreign field: lVIiss Winnifred Woods, to South America, Mr. M. E. Ritz- man, Mr. C. C. Talbott, and Mrs. Carrie W. Talbott Knee Wengertj, to Hunan, China, Mr. C. W. Guinter, to the Sudan, West Africa, and Mr. C. S. Hoffman to Korea. lVIay the Volunteers increase in strength with the coming years at Albright, to the glory of the Christ who died a lost world to save.

Programs are given that dis- play the results of the previous Weeks of practice. The purpose of the club is to give op- portunity for training and to develop proficiency in public appearance. A first performance in Clef Club is analogous to a first appearance in literary society, if the latter sounds like a "bucket full of shoe-strings," then the former surely sounds like that same bucket filling up with hailstones. In the Words of a noted grad- uate a first appearance goes something like this: "lX'Iy heart pounded like a trip hammer, the metronome had about the regularity of a clock smitten with the St. Vitus dance, and my phalanges,Were as flexible and cold as the Hngers of a well soaked kid glove. I started out fine, stumbled on the third note, played a few measures with considerable stuttering and then broke off en- tirely. lkfrs. llflohn coolly bade me begin again, and obediently I tried. I lived to get over the scare, and appeared in Clef Club many times afterwards, though it is safe to say that I never looked the same. But to speak seriously, I count my experiences in the Clef Club recitals as the most advantageous part of my musical training." Indeed, the advantages of the Clef Club training are not to be reckoned lightly. The most critical audience before which one can appear is that composed of fellow musicians. It is there that one learns true musical criticism and the generosity that is free to yield first place to the better performer. It is there the pianist learns that self- consciousness is a deadly foe to artistic performance, that to play truly one must forget all but the composition to be giveng that "soul', can only be expressed Where soul is present, and the art of putting spirit into the expression of music is learned. The Clef Club has among its alumni members many who are now successful music teachers, and as an organization can boast of a useful second to no other organ- ization at Albright. E. B.

The place is by no means synonymous with the Studio, though it may seem so to the uninitiated. The place is one of business, strictly speaking. Ask a conservatory student to play tennis, take a walk, or even do an innocent bit of loafing, and she invariably answers: "I can't. I must practice." Blessed example of industry, as fraught with good lessons to the average academic as is the proverbial ant to the sluggard. We lift our hands and gasp in admiration at her indefatigable patience. Our dull ears Hnd ever so little meaning in the endless tinkle of a dozen pianos, the ever increasing tempo of tick-tacks, and the mute, yet withal eloquent appearance of those dummies technically called claviers. Each has its language, however, though unintelligible to us, the unsophisticated. Spend a day in the Studio. Do by all means. Your dark intellect will be lightened as to the meaning of all these sights and sounds, so familiar, yet so incapable of translation without a key to the situation. The morning's work starts with the harsh gurr-r of winding metronomes, and innumerable "oh, dearsf' The end is afar off. The resolution to faithful practice must be newly bolstered for the day's strain. Alas! alackl the doors between the compartments Qroom would be too large a wordj, are sliding doors, and it is so easy to push back the door and whisper mys- teriously, 'WVhat do you think, last night llflrs. lvlohn caught us cutting up in here, and-3' The hall entrance opens abruptly, and Bfliss Senneff stands there, reprimand in her attitude. Long faces and work for awhile. The day continues, so does lVlusical History, Theory, Harmony, piano and clavier lessons. But it is not all grind. There are days when the musical lilt of a song one prac- tices gets into the blood and the heart lifts a few new fronds upward toward the god Genius. There are days when the grip of a grand old master gets a hold on the soul and the glory of the uplift that comes is more than a recompense for the dreary days of technical work. A glimpse of the true reward the arts musical has for real labor sincerely done comes in these moments of inspiration, keeping the soul exalted, and the grind seems infinitely worth while. The days come and go. The ivories are sometimes mercilessly treated, some- times sought with loving fingers according to the mood of the pianist. Thanks to the tireless, ever-reliable guidance of the teacher, gradually a living, breathing spirit of true art grows Within and seeks expression through the keys that once seemed cold and without capabilities of expression. An indissoluble bond grows up between the student and the practice room. Even the dull hours seem inhnitely dear, and the day of parting rends a few heart-strings. But so is it ever. Only through hours of toil, when discontent is pressed back with difficultyg only through patient striving are the golden gains to be won in the Studio attained. Greetings we give thee, O Conservatory student, success for thy toil, honor for thine achievement. Nlusic thou hast and sweet melodies to liven the long hours of the worlds labor. lVIay the end of thy song be still afar off. and thy 'ringing notes as- cend ever and ever toward the divine melodies whence all inspiration. E. B. L., ,I2. .Ninety-Two THE ART ROOM One of the most familiar interesting and attractive places at Albright College is the Art Studio. It has always been the aim of the instructress, Miss Stanford, to make her department both interesting and instructive. lt is only necessary to visit the studio, and examine the list of her students to know that she has succeeded beautifully. The ability to appreciate the beautiful is such a great asset in the happiness of the individual that the value of an aesthetic education can scarcely be overestimated, We become so accustomed to beauty that the appreciation of it oftentimes becomes a nega- tive rather than a positive factor in our lives. One of the aims of our Art Department is to enable the student to see wherein- beauty lies, for you know by giving attention to details one finds beauty in that which to the untrained observer is merely common- place. Another aim is exactness. The students attempt to produce work at the out- set, of which they need not be ashamed when they have become further advanced. Miss Stanford also tries to cultivate ambition, and a love for hard work. The work is divided into two sections known respectively as the "Morning Wo1'k," and the "China Classf, The morning classes take up work in charcoal, water colors, pastels, and oils. As special features of this department are offered stenciling and raffia. The studies are for the most part taken from nature. Almost any time you can venture into the studio, and there upon tables you will find the still-life groupings. Une might be a series of geometrical hgures. Another a violin study. You would also Hnd flowers, and fruit-the latter with the suggestive sign beneath: "Touch not, taste not, handle not!" Not far away you would find on an easel a partly finished picture of the same in charcoal or water colors. You need only examine the pictures turned out by the students to know that the morning classes are eminently successful. Chief in interest, perhaps, is the China department, This class spends two after- noons a week in the studio. The work done on china is along both conventional and naturalistic lines. A vein of the humorous is a decided feature of this class. The Cso-calledj "nice fat children" are well enough behaved, but their love for a good joke sometimes plays sad havoc with the good intentions of some serious minded one who may be seriously lining the guiding lines on a set of Candlesticks. It certainly is interesting to find upon your arrival in the studio that onions are the stately occupants of your beautifully decorated vase, or that the china upon which you are working has mysteriously disap- peared. As a greeting you would in all probability receive the Hlatest in daffodils" and humorous bits of nonsense. This part however, is not permitted to interfere with good Work, and the china department may be voted one of the big successes of the college. , To sum up: the study of art teaches beauty, one phase of the three-fold unity known as life, and comprised within the cycle of the good, the beautiful, the true. The education in any two of these is incomplete without the cultivation of the third. Viewed in this light the importance -of art becomes doubly clear, an-d our interest in the art room becomes a deep, underlying current of endeavor, not only to develop talent, but to secure here all that art has to give of clear insight into the meanings of life. P. K. B., '12. Ninety-Th1'ee ART EXHIBIT SKETCHING CLUB The Sketching Club is presided over by lXdiss Zell C. Stanford. The members of the Art Department enroll here to enjoy the opportunities afforded for nature study and the appreciation of simple beauty. Sl-:etching develops the artistic bent in more ways than one. The artist and scientist are usually considered most diverse in their paths, and so they are as far as ultimate aim goes. But nevertheless, the two have many characteristics in common. The artist is a scientist in so far as he must observe accurately, record truly, and be able to discriminate between what is essential and what is irrevelant and unessential. The Sketching Club develops these characteristics and is in so far scientihc in its re- sults. The club also cultivates the purely mechanical phase of artistic work. The artist without a true sense of perspective, proportion, the effects of atmosphere, and the im-s portance of unity is a poor artist indeed. It is one the field trips of the Sketching Club that these technicalities are worked out. Nature is the first great artist and the laws of unity and proportion are hers. But the trips mean more than the development of scientific and technical skill. The purest beauty in the realm of art is the simple beauty everywhere revealed in Nature. The trees, the waving grain, the clouds and streams teach their lessons of grace and charm. Indeed, in the development of Aesthetics, Hogarth derived his cele- brated line of beauty from the curve of the waving grain field. So the actual observa- tion of Nature is necessary for an appreciation of the grace and charm visible in its life and motion. , There is an additional advantage, one that lies at the very heart of artistic genius. What means the understanding of form, and the technical laws of art, without a real- ization of the spiritual things underneath? Back of all the phenomena of Nature there lies a universal world soul. Every brook, every tree, the hazy mists of the mountains, far expanses of ether, the high piled clouds of the summer days-these and many more are but revelations of the same world soul, the divine Absolute Beauty wherewith the world was created. What is a work of art unless it .has caught and reflected this spirit? And how can the artist feel the thrill and interpret this spiritual presence un- less he has seen it where it is most clearly visible-upon the benign face of Nature? So the Sketching Club helps develop the true artist. There is no truer uplift to the soul than art. The work of the club is invaluable in teaching one the true meaning of art, the true lines of beauty, and the true soul of the universe which identifies the beautiful with the good. Since the good is immortal, the beautiful must also live eternally, and spread abroad its joy forever. E. B. L., '12. Ninety-Five THE A UMN OFFICERS OF THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION President Rev. J. W.

Ninety-Sia' THE ALUMNI Benedicts and bachelor girls, matrons and gray-haired men, professors, school marms, music teachers, Lehrers und Lehrerins of every description, preachers, farmers, doctors, merchants, chiefsg our alumni enlist in the ranks of such as these. Neither are they a nondescript aggregation but a body of men and women Albright is proud to claim. And the foundation of her pride lies in this, the record they have made for themselves is honorable, the service to their communities is beneficial, and their loyalty to their Alma llflater is a worthy thing. By the way of demonstrating their loyalty, the Alumni have a plan in hand just now. They purpose to raise a fund of twenty-five thousand dollars for the advance- ment of Greater Albright. The money is raised by pledges to be paid in yearly sub- scriptions and the pledges are binding as soon as ten thousand dollars has been sub- scribed. The fund bids fair to reach the mark set by its projectors. The class of IQII alone have pledged themselves for the sum of thirteen hundred dollars, and their example has been a big stimulus to Alumni effort. The committee having the Alumni subscription fund in charge is composed of two men from each of the Pennsylvania Conferences and its personnel is as follows: C. D. Huber, Lebanon, Pa., C. S. Kelchner, lvlyerstown, Pa.g C. N. Graybill, lldlifllintown, Pa., W. H. Brown, Lewisburg, Pa., lyl, Baumgardner, Johnstown, Pa. Yearly the Alumni are becoming more wide-awake to the importance and needs of Albrigfht. Commencement week of 1911 was a record breaker for Alumni activity. Since then throughout various sections of the state the Alumni are organizing them- .selves into chapters for the purpose of keeping strong the bonds that were formed at Albright. ,Alumni constituents in the vicinity' of Reading set the ball in motion by giv- ing a very fine banquet at Reading, hiarch 29, IQI2, Sunbury and Johnstown may also boast of an Albright Alumni organization, and other cities are fast falling into line. Upon the graduates from her various departments Albright rests the foundation for her future progress. While these men and women were students at Albright, Alma llflater spared no pains to plant deep within their hearts the seeds of nobility, truth, serviceg and to them falls the garnering of rich harvest. Albright exacts no tithes for her labor, but loving Alumni hands and hearts bear to her doors ample reward. In memory of "those college days of long ago," for the sake of the Alma lVIater that guided their feet toward the plains of higher living, the Alumni are striving toward 'firm organization among themselves and concentrated effort forthe welfare of Alma Mater. May their cause prosper! E. B. L., lI2. Alineiy-Sezien SOME FACTS ABOUT ALBRIGHT ALBRIGHT COLLEGE is the result of the consolidation of Central Pennsylvania College with former Albright, in 1902. Union Seminary was founded at New Berlin in 1855. Incorporated as Central Pennsylvania College in 1887. Schuylkill Seminary was founded at Reading in 1881. Incorporated as Albright Collegiate Institute in 1895. Both institutions had an Instrumental Music Department from their beginning. The Voice Department fSchuylkill Seminaryj was instituted in 1889 by W. J. Baltzell, A.B. The Art Department fSchuylkill Seminaryj was established in 1885 by J. B. Esenwein, B.S. The Department of Elocution was instituted in 1911, by Miss S. Grace Cobble, A. B., B. E. The Faculty numbers sixteen. The thirty-three organized bodies reflect the high degree of student activity. The student body this year numbers two hundred and one. The campus and Athletic Field contain about twenty acres---the choicest part of Myerstown---situated in the heart of beautiful Lebanon Valley. Ninety-Eight OUR TRIBE OF ESAU What has become of our brawny-looking bearded sons of toil? They have faded away like the stars of the morning. Well, from the very beginning some of them were rather faded, at least as far as their upper mandibles were concerned, especially Jewel, Evans and Rohrbaugh. lVIusselman was swarthy enough to be sure, and proud of it, too. But when he sent his picture to Helen, straightway he received such a vigorous protest that he borrowed a razor and shaved himself, thereby severing all connections with the tribe. While the tribe flourished, many and various were the uses to which shaving ap- paratus was appropriated. Guinther took his razor strop to the harnass maker and had a Hrst-rate belt made for himself, Koch sent his safety razor home for his wife to use as a potato slicer, but he got it back when his wife found what he was doing without it. The tribe made a collection of all the shaving soap and melted it into one huge cake for the use of the dish washer, they gave their talcum powder to the girls and used their bay rum to flavor egg nogs. The Freshman Class had two star members, Shank and Geist. Wllen Shank wanted to get rid of his luxuriant growth, he had to use the lawn mower. Geist looke:l like a man of forty, and it is to be regretted that his youthful actions belied his looks. Poor Saunders had the worst trouble. He got tired having the girls borrow his knife to sharpen pencils, so he cut the end off his razor, fastened the blade in firmly, and hung it by a string to the bulletin board, so that all who choose might come and use. But Dr. Dunlap got tired sweeping such shaving six times a day, so the project had to be abandoned. lvfeanwhile the tribe waxed in numbers and grew strong. Hoppes was an hon- orary member. At the Senior leap year party, the girls gave him the mustache cup to drink from. But he was too slow to see that it was a modest way on the part of the girls of telling him that they admired his successful growing. Kuder wanted to be- come a proselyte pretty badly, but he feared pressure from Allentown. So he stuck to his razor, But according to an old law in psychology, the more intense the craze, the sharper the reaction. And in this instance the reaction was sharp enough, in fact, sharp as a razor. VVhen the tribe decided to disband and raze the hair they had raised with so much trouble, the run on Doc Davis' drug-store for shaving apparatus fairly raised the poor manls hair. However, peace and sanity have since been restoredg our fellows have become normal in their appearance, and we, of the co-eds, sincerely hope that the restoration is a lasting one. - E. B. L., ,I2.

Its charter members were Adam and Eve. Auxiliaries and branch societies spread to all partS of the world from the original Eden, Paradise migrating along with them. With the establishment of Albright College and the planting of groves thereabout, the Arborescent Club sprang up there and grew most abundantly. The favorite places of rendezvous with the members are the Duck Pathg the Canal, the road toward the Big Dam, and the Violet Patch back of the Lutheran Church. The beneficiaries of the club state that the advantages of membership are by no means inferior to those obtained from any other organization around the place. The club competes ably with the literary societies in teaching the powers of speechg it vies with the Sketching Club in developing the magnetism of drawingg and in the occult science of psychology it is established that the Arborescent Club promulgates some facts of which even the Science Seminar is in no position to secure absolute knowledge. The main purposes of the Artorescent Club, as expressed in the preamble of the constitution are as follows: Q11 To take a sneak once a week. C21 To get campused twice every term. Q31 To keep the gravel along the duck path well ground to powder. C41 By hard usage destroy annually one tree along said duck path. C51 Prepare its graduates for entrance into matrimonial bureaus. The society last year graduated some notable members, VVe mention a few: Messer, Floss, lvluss, Helen, Pete, Shaffer, Jay, Nan, Schlappich, Bowman. The pres-- ent membership and the officers may be found on the next page. E. B. L., '12.

"jewels, jewels, jewels-like the crystalline dewdrops from a thousand summer mornings, jewels, the rarest and richest of earth's gems can I show thee," and the speaker, my young lord, Conrad of Hessia, motioned his guest to a table by the win- dow, "Sayest thou that anywhere in all the wide world can be found a richer treasure with which to purchase aid for the cause of the holy crusade?" and my lord, opening the casket he held, poured a brilliant shower upon the crimson table cloth. His guest drew a quick breath of admiration. "Wonderful," he cried, gazing upon their beauty with dazzled eyes. The glorious jewels caught the sunlight that streamed through the long, narrow window, and tossed it back in myriads of shattered, scintillating shafts. Truly the sight was beautiful and worthy of admiration. "Wonderful," repeated the guest, adding, "how camest thou by these treasures? Surely they are the hoardings of more than one generation!" "Nay, they are all of mine own hoarding," replied Lord Conrad, pride in his voice. "Fifteen years ago this day I began to gather them. I was then but a lad, about to buckle on my first sword and corselet. This-" and he picked up a star- shaped topaz, Nwas blessed by the holy pope on the day I took the cross with Frederick, grandson of Barbarossa. By its divine aid I reached the sacred city of our Lord, and through faith received a vision of the holy star of Christ," A glowing diamond next engaged their attention. "This I bought with the rev- enues of my estate, which accumulated Whilst I was on the holy crusade. And for this," he held to the sunlight a blood-red ruby of unusual size, HI sent three thousand of my sturdy Hessian lads to help our Prussian lord against the usurper from Saxonyf, " 'Tis symbolic of its price," murmured the guest, "bought with blood, and from blood was it formed." lVIy Lord Conrad heeded not the interruption, but went on with the history of his jewels. There were pearls from the Orient-rich spoil snatched from the inhdel Saracens before the tomb of our Saviour. There were pearls, amethysts and deep- colored sapphires obtained by weary journeys across the hot sands of Arabia. There were strange, rich stones, secured from caravans that had brought them from the far eastern land of China-the country of mystery and wealth. There were handfuls of smaller stones, emeralds, opals, diamonds, pearls, trophies of a thousand adventures of barter or rapine. For my Lord Conrad of Hessia, although but a year or two past thirty, had travelled far and wide,-as crusader with Frederick the Second, as plunder, then merchant, and again as plunderer, in the rich and topsyturvy city of Constanti- nople, a servant now of this king, now of that, escaping a thousand perils, a thousand deaths, but adding always to his rich and priceless collection. Lord Conrad knew the history of all his gems. Some he had purchasedg some he had received as gifts or in payment of serviceg and still others were the plunder from camps of the cursed infidels. I-le fondled them as if they were living things. They One Itfundred and Four were his treasures, his darlings, for which he had spent his worldly goods, his energy, yea, even his very lifels blood had not been too dear a price. t'Ah, my young friend," continued Conrad, HI see not your face because the shadow of your cowl is deep. But your voice tells me you are yet fair and utibearded. You were better protected in those Wild Eastern lands, by your palm and gown than was I with all my armor. I am weary of toil and war. Would to God I might lay down my sword and rest me here in the sweet vales of I-Iessia. But a mighty vow is upon me, and I rest not until it is fulnlledf' Q The stranger raised his head in surprise. His soft foreign accent smote my lorcl's ear with a bewildering sense of familiarity. "Surely,U he said, "thou needest not to journey away in search of more treasure! Thou hast abundance. Art thou not satisfied ?" Scorn suddenly replaced Lord Conrad's dazed wonder as to the identity of his guest, and he exclaimed contemptuously: - "Is the soul of man ever satisfied? Thinkest thou, my friend, that I hoard these treasurers to feed mine own avarice upon them? I tell thee nay. They are a price to be paid for our Lord's tomb, and an offering upon the altar of mine own vengeance upon the cursed inndels there. One treasure I had that satisfied-but it is gone, and the whole wide world cannot replace its loss. I will not rest until I have requited to the last drop the cursed infidels who took it away. What are these baubles but a means wherewith to accomplish my purpose?H He swept the glittering things so lately fondled, into their receptacle, while his guest said, UFO1' thine own revenge thou dost travel the wide countries of Europe to stir up another crusade. Thou hast set thine own cause above that of our Lord. Surely thou couldst not have suffered as he did at the hands of Jewish dogs? llly lord's eyes flashed tire under the reproof so calmly spoken and well meant. H "Aye, I have suffered to the crucihxion of half my body, have had my heart rent in twain by the heathen dogs. As knight in God's service, I demand but what is right at the hands of my fellow-Christians, requital for injury done me. I will tell thee all, shielding not myself wherein I have erred. Thou shalt see if I merit thy stern judg- ment. The long months and severe discipline of Frederickls campaign soon hardened me from a stripling scarce able to bear the weight of full armor, into such a man of sinew as thou seest me to be. At twenty-one I overthrew Frederick himself in tournament. Thenceforth he made me his companion, in admiration of my prowess. He took me with him to Saladin when he bearded the infidel in his harem and won the treaty that allowed Christians to worship unmolested at the sacred shrine. Saladin was courteous and invited us to banquet. Frederick, Christian king that he is, reeks naught when asked to wine and fair faces, be they infidel or no. So, seated in his courts, we partook of spiced wines and watched the dancers as they came and went before us. Lust was unknown to me, One Hzzndred and Fi-ve Q and I had scarce yet become acquainted with the possibilities for pleasure that lie in young, hot blood of no experience. Soon I became drunk with the wine, and appreciation of the fair, gliding forms before me. Belike, the dark haired dancers had not seen before yellow beards and eyes of blue among the black-browed Saracens. Constantly they turned their glorious eyes upon me, and lured my passion with smiles. It may be that Saladin noted the rising fire in mine eye. He declared the feast at an end, and a stately escort accompanied us to the palace gate. For awhile Crusader and Saracen lived as neighbors together, and the duties of military life lightened. There were tournaments and feats of prowess daily. Fred- erick, in return for Saladin's courtesy, invited him to banquet. I myself bore the invitation to his palace. I found him seated among silken cush- ions, and caught the soft rustle of departing footsteps as I entered. He had been sur- rounded by his women who vanished at my approach. I fancied I saw sparkling eyes peep from behind the costly hangings. The heady visions of my previous visit had about disappeared, but now I felt my blood boil again with the fever that had smitten me at Saladinls banquet. When I followed the guide upon returning through the long hall, a curtain was slyly drawn aside, and a black-eyed maid peeped out. She looked very like the Nixies that haunt our Hessian glens. She said softly in Arabic: The passion flower that grows by the garden wall opens its buds at sunset, but they perish at midnight' My heart leaped. She had heard my message to the Sultan and was inviting me to spend the hours of his absence at the palace. Did thought of treachery or danger rise to my mind? The quick desire for such pleasure as I had not yet known throbbed in my blood, and I nodded assent. But she had already vanished. I remembered hav- ing seen her at the dance, and remembered too, how her dark eyes dwelt on my face with longing, I had heard from other knights how the secluded beauties of this land were often smitten with sudden passion when first they beheld a fair-haired stranger from the North. 'And if truth is ere to be found in rumor, I am not the first to visit the Sultan's harum unknown to himself,' I mused. The fateful day of the banquet followed. By a little strategy, Frederick was constrained to send me without the city on an errand requiring great care and atten- tion. The length of my absence was uncertain. But at least I would not be ques- tioned for missing the entertainment in the Sultan's honor. Plainly, but lightly clad, I left the city and dusk found me before the wall where the passion flower grew. To climb its rough surface was no effort, and I soon found myself surrounded by a dozen laughing, eager faces. Their master had gone. They had drugged the eunuchs and were prepared to entertain a new master for the time being. Who could detect the prank? There were none other but the guards, and who of them would dare approach so near Saladin's sacred apartments? One Pfurzzlred and Six I l Like a troop of gauzy sprites they led me to Saladinls own rooms. Chatting. laughing, and so like the naiads with their dainty graces, they ministered unto me. They divested me of my leathern garments and poured over me perfumed waters from Saladin's laveratory, and with their own fair hands attired me in his costly robes and led me to his banquet hall. There, they bade me recline on Saladinls own couch. They surrounded me with their tempting lips and round white shoulders, and offered me innumerable cups of cool, spicy wine. No wonder I forgot that I was a Christian knight in God's serv- ice. I cried aloud that the supreme thing of the world is love, and forgot the law whereby love is kept holy. They danced the entrancing measure I had seen once before, flinging their beauties before me with lavishness, and bade me choose the most beautiful from among them. In my choice there was no hesitation. Throughout the evening I had kept mine eye fixed upon one sweet maid. Her cloudy hair fell around her, gracefully as a veil, and at each glance of mine, her rich dark cheek glowed. Her sweet, shy grace pleased me more than all, and I would have drawn her to me, but she shrank back and fell upon her knees. 'Have mercy, my lord,' she cried. 'If I have pleased thee one whit, spare mel I am but a maid, not yet called upon to honor the Sultan. If he is disappointed in me, I shall surely be slain with cruel tortures. Wouldst thou have me die thus ?' She sank upon her face, and strong within me rose mine accusing knighthood. lVIy soul suddenly loathed itself, and I revolted from the revelry that had seemed so pleasing. I lifted the girl with words of assurance, and cried out to the rest of the company, 'Away with you, ye workers of iniquity! Ye abomination in the sight of all true men! Almost had ye accomplished the utter damnation of my soul l' The women, awestruck at my thundering words, cowered. A deep unquenchable desire came to me to keep the maid ever as she was, pure and untouched. 'Wotildst thou seek a better life and know the joys of respected womanhood ?' I asked. lAye, my lord,l a Hush staining her cheek. Then in a fervor of abhorence, she c1'ied out, IO couldst thou but know what we must livel Tell me, is there any hope among the Christians? ls there any man to whom we are more than playthings when he lacks opportunity to seek other pleasure ?, Solemnly I assured her that in the Christian camp she would End honor and homage from the hearts of true men, and pledged my word to guard and protect her there. So together we left the hall where the awe-stricken women still shrank. The maid found for me mine own garments, and for herself a heavy cloak in which to hide her own snowy robes. . What burden is a slip of a maid in a stalwart man's arms? I feared nothing save the guards of Saladin. 'My lady would be a cumbrance only if it came to a hand to hand conliict. I halted near the outer posts and fumbled for my svford. I wished to One HUlZd14FI1 ana' Seven come across no foe unprepared. The lady knew the grounds better than I and possessed a keener vision in the starlight. She suddenly slipped to the ground, and seizing my hand, exclaimed: 'A guard stands by yonder bush. Now he turns toward the far entrance. Come this Wayf She darted on ahead. I held the harness of my sword to keep it from clanking, and followed through the darkness. Her light steps put to the test my best paces. We were soon beyond the shadow of the walls and out by the open road, having passed the gate under the very noses of a dozen quarreling guards. The laxity of the guard was a wonder to me, until later when my lady explained that fair hands from the harem had supplied them plentifully with intoxicating wines. The sound of mine own voice was sufficient to admit me to the walls of Jerusalem. Did not every guard know my name? Could I not summon every last man of them by the names their mothers had given them? They looked at my lady in amazement. but spake no word, and we went on through the encampment. A soldierls tent is no' place for a maid, so I gave her to the care of the nuns at the cloister. Waiting until Saladin's departure, I sought audience with my lord Frederick, and humbly confessed the fault of which I had been guilty. U Frederick laughed long and loud over what was now to me a terrible sin. 'So the Sultan's jades have set thy blood on firef he cried, 'and my virgin knight of the cross disdained not to seek pleasure in the kennel of an adulterous dogl' Frederick, tolerent and immoral himself, could not condemn'his favorite knight for a breach of the law. But his face became grave when I mentioned that mine of- fence, should it become known, would bring Saladin howling upon us with all his infidel host. "Twas a madcap prank. But I love thee too dearly to forfeit thy life for the sake of the truce. I will protect thee and the lady. If thou wishest penalty, thou shalt have it. Convert the maid and marry her. Let her be mistress of thy fair Hessian province. Belike, once it is no longer strange, she will find it better than what the damned Saracen has to give. And if any man think it unseemly that a Chris- tian knight should take to wife the child of inhdel people, let him come hither with his tauntsf So much for Frederick's punishment. llfy heart bowed to his edict, and on the day they baptized my lady, I married her." Lord Conrad paused, and his voice broke. I-Ie seemed to be living over again some great and terrible agony. But soon he recovered himself and continued, whilst' the guest, in sympathy, covered his own face: "She was my jewel, my own treasure that satisfied and filled with nobility every corner of my soul. The Christian teaching as she heard it from the gentle nuns was the very quintessence of what she craved, and she grasped the truth of it all with eager- ness. Even our rough, gutteral language her soft voice learned to compass with won- derful rapidity. I wooed and won her fairly, with no undue advantage of her depend- Onrf ffurzdred and Eight' ence upon me. She had been tenderly nurtured and possessed the wonderful, mystic fascination of her race. lVIy lady and I were prepared to leave the Holy Land immediately after our mar- riage and seek better security in Constantinople. Saladin had raised no outcry over his lost maid. We thought surely his women dared not tell him what had happened. But the wretch must certainly have known and boded his time for a sure revenge. He would not risk breaking the truce and causing a war in which the offender might easily escape. IN-ly lady asked for a few minutes alone after the ceremony, and the assemblage was dismissed. I left her kneeling before the altar when I withdrew into the sacristy for a few last words with the patriarch. But a few little minutes we were absent, for my heart burned to be with my bride. When I returned, what I saw wrought frenzy and dismay within me. hffy lady was gone! The image of the .Virgin lay overturned, the candles were extinguished, the censors torn from their chains, the incense spilled before the shrine. Cursed, cursed Saladin had been watching our deeds, and snatched away my prize at a time when he knew its loss would be most sorely felt. For a while I knew not what I did. Banished all the dreams of the long, sweet hours which a nearer and dearer intimacy would give. Banished were all the hopes of a life of service spent in my lady's loving company. IXfIy heart gripped when I thought of her exposed to the merciless revenge of the Sultan, and in fancy I saw her tender body already writhing in tormentf' Lord Conrad paced the floor as he continued his narrative, and his face grew haggard with such agony as only a strong man feels. "What did I do? What did I not do to recover her! Short had been the time and I did not believe the robbers had yet left the city. Soldier and knight together joined me and we turned all Jerusalem inside out but to no avail. From his harem I pulled out the black-hearted Saladin by his beard, and scattered his harlots like dead leaves in a tempest. Before I tore him limb from limb, he smiled over my wrath, say- ing his torment would not bring back the lady. He had mutilated her fair body as was deserved by the woman who forsook her rightful lord for the arms of another. But a scant half hour since her sweet flesh had been thrown out to gorge the guts of the wild dogs! Press me not to Hnish this tale. I will tell thee all presently," and my Lord Conrad hid his face, whilst his knightly frame shook with emotion difficult to suppress. His guest started up with outstretched hands and an exclamation of sympathy, but suddenly restrained his impulse and sat down again, with bowed head. After a few moments my lord continued, his voice rising with determination: "Ten years of sorrow have passed since then. Before the ashes of what had been the Sultan's harem, I vowed by the cross not to cease until the last Saracen be driven from the earth. At first Frederick was at my back, and the war re-opened with vigor. But one by one distractions in the home country caused the lords to withdraw. Ere Um' H1.'nrI1'f1! C7111 Nifze long Frederick himself was forced to leave, because his affairs with the Pope were critical. I found myself alone in the struggle. But determination will ever find a way to fulfil purpose. I had learned that the only way to safely amass large sums is in the form of gems, and had already acquired a goodly handful of them as plunder. But now I set to work in earnest to obtain the wherewithal to purchase aid for my war. And my resolution was to make the cursed infidels pay for their own destruction. I plundered the Arabian caravans and caused their fierce owners to believe that Saladin, nephew of the old Sultan, had done it. I robbed a thousand villages, and the raging, deluded Turks fell upon Saladin as the guilty one. As merchant I trafficked my stolen goods in Alexandria, Constantinople, Venice. I travelled far and wide in Arabia and Egypt to stir up a hornetsl nest about Saladin's ears. I hired myself and my brave lads to this king or that, always turning his hand against the Sultan. lVIy treasure I spent not, but hoarded for the day that was coming. Christendom lacked unity of action in Palestine. I saw the Crusaders would be entirely forced out and then would come mine opportunity. VX7ith greater surety of success, I could lead hither mine own men, under mine own leadership and bound to obey none but me. As you know Jerusalem has fallen, and the Christians are driven out. I have travelled the length and breadth of Europe with accounts of how the sacred places are desecrated and abundance of soldiery are gathering for me. The Pope has blessed mine enterprize. Louis of France has sold me troops, also Henry of England, and all the Holy Roman Empire is back of me. With resolute men and money to retain them, how can I fail? I I am home now for the first time in fifteen years. llflayhap it will be the last time for me to look on these given old walls. I have bidden farewell to the peasant peo- ple who have been so loyal to me through all these long years of absence. I go to Palestine for the Hnal struggle. Though victory is certain, methinks my death will come in the issue. But what matters it, if I die in the land that nurtured my lady, though it gave her a cruel and untimely death?" Lord Conrad paused, and his visitor arose, the fire of inspiration glowing in his dark eye. "IVIy lord," he cried, "hadst thou remained in Palestine until the Knight Templars made their last assault, strange news would have come to thine ears. Saladin lied when he told thee thy lady was put to death." Lord Conrad sprang at his guest, crying out: "By heaven, and thou raise a false hope within me-l Speak, man, speak! lVIust I tear the news from thine unheated throat?" "Softly, Lord Conrad, softly. Another such a clutch at me, and thou must travel far for thy news. It was indeed the Sultanls men who watched and stole her from thee. But thy quick motion to the rescue kept them from taking her to him. To glut his revenge, he lied to see the writhe, and died satisfied. Peace-the lady is alive and awaits thee. Nay, stop me not. I must tell thee all ere my strength faileth. When One Hu7zf11'efl and Ten thou didst slay the Sultan, she was taken to his nephew. The failure of thy assault on his citadel was all that kept thee from regaining her at once. The man wist not that she was a maid, and since she had been in his uncle's household dared not touch he1'. But still he kept her prisoner as a punishment for her flight. When the Knight Templars were driven from Jerusalem, they afterwards sacked Saladin's harem and found her there. Remembering thy sad story, they are sending her unto theef' "God, my God," exclaimed Lord Conrad, completely overcome. "Conrad, my Lord Conrad, take heart, I do beseech thee. O mine own husband, look! I am thy lady, thy wife, whom thou wouldst avenge," and casting off the dull cowl and gown, the visitor revealed the same wealth of cloudy hair, the same fashion of snowy robes that had fascinated my lord on the night of his sin. Lord Conrad's joy was of the kind that compels no expression of words. His arms around the slight figure, his eyes bent in searching eagerness upon the somewhat changed, but glorified face, he could only exclaim, "Now praise everlasting be to Him who careth for his ownlu THE FLIES' REVENGE C K I Ten little flies All in a line, 0ne got a swat!

You are straight in from the country. Long and gaunt, you know not how to bestow yourself and your belongings in the little six by eight dormitory room assigned you. Your trunk in one corner, a wardrobe in the second, a bureau in the third, a bed in the fourth, your shoes under the bed, mother's picture on the wall, and your room is filled to overflowing. Your first proposition has panned out well. Your second is not so good. It con- cerns your first meal in the dining room. When the bell rings, you follow a troop of noisy upper class men to that place of mysteries and good odors. Every one seems to be diving for a seat, so you dive with the rest of them. Alackl Alas! You find yourself at a table where you are the only fellow among a half a dozen co-eds. The healthy brown arms and braids and sunbonnets of the lasses at home have no terrors for you. But for this once in your life, you are afraid of the girls. These 'fuppish" young ladies silently pass you dishes, and then turn to joke and laugh about matters entirely foreign to your knowledge. You feel terribly out in the cold. You bolt your food, and leave the table as soon as you dare, a mist in your eyes, a lump in your throat, and the aching void in your stomach but half filled. You are lonely beyond power of expression. You sit by your window and think seriously of returning to the old place where blue eyes and a warm brown hand are ready and more than willing to drive "your sorrors away." As the evening deepens, you gradually resign yourself to comforting visions of the girl you left behind. At the critical moment, a scuffle in the hall outside, laughter, then a bold knock at your door, cause you to start up hastily. Your door flies open and in come several fellows, all talking, laughing andshowing general traits of good comradship. "Got the blues, old boy?" 'fNever mind, we were new students too, once. You'll know the ropes too, after awhilefl Got your schedule, yet? Which class?" "Freshman? Put her hereg you're the pal for mef, And so in the cheery attempts at comradship, your homesickness vanishes and you begin to perk up. During the next few days, you join a literary society, hear about the frats, the prohibition league, subscribe to the athletic association, etc., etc. Class organization, class scraps, and initiations follow each other in rapid succession. You Write interesting letters home about these affairs, and especially how the Freshmen saved their flag, though they had to smash in the spinal column of the best fellow on the 'varsity to do it. But, oh! the agony of your first speech in literary society! You blush, stammer, and talk like a bucket full of shoestrings. The applause of the members and some- bodyls expression of Hnice attemptf' sound like sarcasm to yourburning ears, and you are glad the ordeal is over. So the year progresses. By the time of your Sophomore year, you are no longer tall and gaunt, but deepchested, well dressed, sporty. A roll on your trousers, a frat One Hundred and Severztwn pin, and a cap that fits like a tin roof on a woodshed, are your distinguishing character- istics. You learn how it goes to be licked by the Freshies, but are courageous even in defeat. You raise a crop of hair that looks like heaven-there is no parting there, and make a trial for the 'varsity football team. You win your A, and thereupon begins your popularity with the girls, also your troubles with the Faculty. The co-eds are not such a bad lot after all and you make some pretty interesting acquaintances. You call after ten-thirty beneath a lNlohn Hall window for a promised box of fudge, which has been delivered by mistake to some other fellow, and you get the ducking meant for the other fellow. You are summoned to the sanctum to answer for a quick succession of offences, like-illegal conduct during a leap year sleighing partyg attending a surprise party up town, swiping a can of ice cream off a back porch and treating the girls in the studio therewithal. You are given a short leave of absence by Faculty dispensation. Dad and a general feeling of relapse toward the old girl at home cause you to settle down for the rest of the year. The third year finds you settled in the rut of Junior living. Since too many irons in the fire has heretofore seemed unprofitable business, you begin to decide just which of the co-eds you prefer to take to the Star Course over town, or buy her season tickets from the Athletic Association. Thenceforth you divide your time between talking to a certain co-ed on the duckpath and writing to the old girl back home. The latter's blue eyes seem now near, now far away, according to the attractiveness or perversity of the co-ed. But time drags. You plug most of the time, watch your finals anxiously and break the monotony of life by getting your head bumped in a particularly vicious game of basket ball. The bump puts your thinking apparatus out of gear for awhile, and you gain additional glory by being starred as a martyr tothe cause of athletics. Now the Senior year with its dignity. You walk very erect, so much so that did you walk more erect you would surely step upon the back of your neck. But a little trouble causes you to droop momentarily. Decision day comes all too suddenly. The co-ed is well educated, brilliant, popular. The sweet blue eyes at home have a win- some charm that is irresistible. You hesitate and hesitate. The upshot of the whole matter is that you fall between both girls and get neither. You contemplate sour bachelorhood for awhile, but the old strains of "There's as many good fish in the sea As have ever yet been caught," cause you to lift your head once more. You have yet to learn that your luck is hoodoed. Banquets, diplomas, degrees, greetings, farewells follow each other in quick suc- cession, and behold! your college career is like a horse race, all over but the shouting. You are out in the world, a degree for a title, a diploma for a weapon with which to win name and fame, and a wife if you can. The undergraduates toss their caps and bid you Godspeed, exclaiming, "Here's health and good luck, and may you never die until you break your bones over a bushel of gloryf' One ffundred and Eighteen Name S.
