It is not all we wish it were and in many respects our ideals have not been attained. The ethereal visions, once entertained, have left us and we have returned to earth to complete by labor that which we trans- cended in our dreams. Still we believe that the book is not without merit and that it has a definite place to fill in our college life. It is a book of achievements that in years to come will recall more vividly days that we can not forget. It is not the book of the editors or of the classg it is your book. Take it and read it, and try to comprehend the spirit it portrays. But leave us, who have forced the faulty creation into the world, to return to our dreams of what it might have been. S members of the Junior Class, we dedicate this volume of the Kanakadea to our worthy and esteemed Pro- fessor of English and Public Speaking, maglanh Belamn milrnx The same year he entered upon his professorship in this university, we entered as freshmen, and since that time we have learned to admire him as a teacher, to respect him as a man, and to love him as a friend. I9II Thus nineteen 'leven is recorded, Fewer than when the voyage begung Gales we've seen and storms we've weathered Defeats we've met, battles we have wong And tho our crew is thinned by the struggle The port's in vievrg the voyage is nearly done.

Portraits FTER several years of ceaseless work and study in her chosen career, Penelope had allowed horself, as a vacation task, to make a series of sketches from memory. She had just completed them when a college mate turned up, one whom she had not seen since the old student days at Alfred. After an exchange of news and views, Penelope showed her friend the contents of the studio and then led her up to the newly-finished portraits. , " Why Penelope, how splendid ! All our dear old Fac- ulty!-" Molly paused, memories, brought back by the fa- miliar faces, crowding her mind. " Tell me what you think of them Y" urged Penelope. Enthusiastic Molly eagerly began, "Let's arrange them like they used to sit in chapel, and then I will tell you how they impress me. . " Here's Prexie for the big chair in the middle. Hasn't he a fine head, though? His broad, high forehead shows the mental power behind it. I can see the old expression of kindly solicitude in his eyes. His whole heart was filled with the joys and sorrows of the college, and with the success or failure of the students. May he ever be proud of Alfred's sons and daughters whom he has helped to careers of usefulness. "Next to him, in the seat of honor, we'll put 'dear old 1 l i 4 14 Tommy,' our patriarchal scholar. How we used to yell for him when he visited chapel, and how his mild eyes beamed upon us ! He was always kind to the good ones, gentle with the bad ones, and the inspiration of all. If we could all accomplish such long years of splendid service, we would not have lived in vain. "Here is Dean Kenyon for the next place. Good old A. B. K., with his crusty exterior and the tenderest heart in the world. Freshmen feared him, Sophomores respected him, Juniors admired him, Seniors loved him, and none of us owe more to any member of the faculty. " On the other side of Prexie goes Dr. Main with his shapely head, showing the powerful brain within it. Didn't he tell the best stories in chapel and then follow them with speeches so inspiring they would lift you right up out of yourself. I wish I could hear one right now. " Beside him goes Professor Whitford, a man who showed by word and deed, how true Christian beliefs could be combined with upright business principles to make a clean, honorable life. We used to get sound advice from him, didn't we? The pity is that we didn't follow more of it. " The next is Professor Binns, a scientist whose opinion we respected and whose genuis we admired. But he was not only a scientist. Besides leading the students in the mysteries of the art of clay working, he read to us Tennyson and talked on politics and education. We believe that he possessed what he urged upon each of us, a liberal education. "Here's Professor Childs, another scientist for the next place. Deep explanations and intricate computations were his 'long suits,' while next to Chemistry and Physics, football and Field Day were dear to his heart. He was always interested in college activities and could be depended on for anything from ' moral support ' to excused classes on the day of a game. " Professor Wilcox, the enthusiast of the faculty, has the end place. All the Freshmen had a 'crush ' on him, but after we grew too old for ' crushes ' we learned to respect his earnest character and to make a comrade of him in all our college interests. Christian Associations, dramatics, athletics,-every part of college life received his eager support. " Now, doesn't the front row look familiar and comforting ? I feel as though I were really in the old chapel looking at them. " The first in the back row is Professor Annas, most familiar on a piano stool. And what music he could produce with his nimble fingers ! Strike up a college song in any key whatever and lead the whole college, and then what the other professors did by their speeches, he did by his sympathetic playing, he inspired and thrilled us with the beauty of music. " Beside him goes solemn-visaged Professor Clawson. In his chapel speeches he only gave us glimpses into the funds of knowledge which were stored behind those quizzical eyes, while few men had a kinder heart than his or a more generous spirit toward the students. " Here's 'Jimmy ' Bennehoff for the next place, the most jovial member of the faculty. Taking and making jokes came easily to him, and his popularity was largely due to this. He was always willing to help one, while his enthusiasm for his work greatly increased the ardor of his students. " The next is Professor Crandall, the presiding genius of the shops. In him was combined practical and visionary common sense, wisdom, and deep thinking in a rare degree. While doing his every-day work he was always looking toward the betterment of the world in general, and his clever head and hands together wrought out many a beautiful idea or ideal. " The next seat is occupied, if not filled, by little Miss Hay- dock, our artist. She showed us in her unobtrusive way, by living her sincere, serene life, what art can do to make the world more beautiful, happier, and better. You, Penelope, are following in her footsteps, and to her you owe most of your success. " Miss Hart looms rather large as compared with Miss Hay- dock, doesn't she ? But her body is none too big for her brains, for she was our classicist and what she didn't know about Greek and Latin wouldn't fill a page. Her broad, intellectual mind seemed to be above petty things and her way of looking at life might well be emulated. " Here is our Professor Clarke, a man scholarly beyond his years, and one who was honored for his earnest, sincere living and tireless effort for the students. He was one of the 'all round' members of the faculty, and was ever ready to help individuals or organizations as far as lay in his power. "Next to him goes Professor Titsworth, whom we liked while we dreaded his long lessons and stiff examinations, for we knew that he was doing it all ' for our good,' and that there were few better teachers on the faculty. " The last but certainly not the least portraitis of Professor Greene, the man of brawn. He was the wonder of all on the athletic field, and the status of athletics rose by leaps and bounds when he was director, do you remember? And he had the deserved reputation of being strong physically, morally, and spiritually. " Oh, Penelope, my heart is full when I look at these por- traits. We owe so much to our dear faculty and we can never repay them. I only hope they know that we are truly grateful and that we are wishing many blessings for each and every one." Mary H.

GREEN, Treasurer Colors Ox-blood and Gray Yell A-Z-f-1'-e-d One-nine-one-three A Record of Sir Frosh OSTERED among the natural glades of divers and sundry " prep " schools, innocent of the wiles and crafts of those who had gone before, the gallant 1913 entered the lists to make test of his prowess and valor. No sooner had he crossed the little Kanakadea stream which bounds the field of action, than he was greeted with much applause and the admiration of many of the patrons and nobles, several of whom had even been the favorites of his rival, 1912. For stalwart and of glorious strength was his physique, frank and unblemish- ed was his brow, and proudly did he toss his head, helmeted in green with a golden crest. Aided by his strong and solicitous friend, 1911, this youth- ful knight marshalled his forces in preparation for the struggle to come. Scarcely had he given his battle-cry when the traditional enemy, experienced in all the arts of warfare, rush- ed down upon him. As the daring "Sir Soph" advanced, he attempted in vain to crush the young knight's ardent spirits with many oaths and much irrelevant advice. But, like the gallant soul that he was, 1913 was undaunted, and, scornfully disregarding his enemy's prattle, on he plunged, his lance in rest. Right valiantly did the combatants conduct themselves in the coming struggle. Both were ever alert, ever watchful, 1912 because of his former experience and training, 1913 be- cause of his irrepressible spirit. At last, after thwarting several very craftily aimed thrusts from his opponent, 1913 dealt ' ' Sir Soph " one good blow which quite surprised and dazed him. Let it be said to his honor, however, that as he retreated, sore-smitten, down the field, he suddenly wheeled about and thrust at 1913 with his reliable, old sword, the " Erie Special ", dealing him a blow which, though by no means incapacitating the youthful victor, won for him his knightly spurs. "Sir Frosh", confident in his new-found strength, twice challenged " Sir Soph " to further contests of courage and valor. But the elder knight, no longer " strong and of a good courage -", pleaded indulgence on account of loss of strength, and threw down his gauntlet as a pledge that, immediately after his recovery, he would again meet " Sir Frosh " in knightly conflict. Then followed a long winter in which both contestants were recuperating and training themselves in view of the future battle. The knights of "Sir Frosh " engaged in many courtly pastimes, and won great renown by their skill in the art of fencing, conducting two tournaments each week. Early in November, they were introduced at court and were tendered a royal reception by the king and queen. Their jolly friend, 1911, proffered them many helpful suggestions, and, just as the first signs of spring were announc- ing the approaching confiict with " Sir Soph ", he entertained the forces of 1913 at a great feast, from which each knight de- parted, feeling even more closely the good fellowship which exists between him and his comrades. The winter has passed, and spring is calling the knights to battle. May each show his knightly valor and chivalry !

N 39 The Voyage N the fall of 1907 there started from the port of Hometown a new and bright little ship, the "1911." It confidently sailed away, banners fiying, little considering the storms ahead, simply enjoying the sunshine and smooth waters of the present. The crew on board proved to be an unusually congenial crowd, and the days passed quickly and happily. There were several occasions when the little craft had to struggle bravely to overcome the enemy's fieet, but for a time it was able to hold its own and acquit itself with glory. How proudly it sailed into its first horbor! There, several of its members disembarked, which crippled, to some extent, the strength of the ship. When the time came for the "1911 " and its crew to again set out on its journey it was with the same glory in its un- stained and Boating colors, the same loyalty to the ship and the mates. Several new members joined the crew and added their strength and efforts to the cause of the noble ship. There was not the old fearlessness and utter disregard of what was before, which they experienced when they first set outg they foresaw the dangers to come, but the best they could do was to stand together and loyally fight for the colors which waved above their heads. When the enemy appeared, the " 1911" was ready for it, and the brave little craft fought loyally, although far out- numbered, against its foe. Several times it lost the battleg several times it won. As much honor was due to it in defeat as in victory, because it put forth its greatest energy for the cause, even though there was so much against it. Then, too, in defeat it maintained its pride and honor in giving the vic- torious enemy its just due. Thus its second journey continued to its end. At the second anchoring, still other members of the crew disembarked, and no new passengers were taken on. The ship is now pursuing its third trip. It is proving different from the two preceeding ones. Instead of encounters with the enemies, there are rich stores to be obtained by the crew and to be put aboard this ship, so that after one more trip it may reach its destination, not only having acquitted itself well, but heavily ladened with the richest treasures that may be obtained from the shores which are being visited.

History of the Class of l9I0 E have now come to the last chapter of the book, con- taining the history of the class of 1910, and you may be sure, it has a pleasing ending, though perhaps sad in the departure of its members from Alfred University. The sojourn of the class in Alfred has been a happy one, and the events of the four chapters are most inter- esting. We remember in the first of the book how these people, after organizing with their ofiicers and leaders, won victory after victory. What a jolly, energetic class they were from the first! Their glorious banquet on October first, their vic- torious fiag-rush, their accomplishments as intelligent students, all these make a most exciting, beginning to this famous book, and make us mosf anxious to continue on in our reading, leav- ing them at the end of the chapter where, after an entertain- ment at the home of their president, they burned their green caps as a reminder of the passing of their first year. ' In like manner the second chapter is filled with startling events of battles ending in splendid'victories. This year their banquet differs from the first in that they are pursued by their enemy. But, needless to say, their enemy is easily left behind, for, if not so greatin number, they far excelled them in powers and shrewdness, causing the enemy to return defeated, after their fruitless ride over the country. Soon after this the class deemed it advisable to publish some helpful advice to their inferior enemy, and posted procs over the town. Of course May attempted to tear them up, but they were not very successful. This chapter, as well, has its share of social gatherings, and they continue on, a group of happy, intelligent people. In the third year of their sojourn the greater part of their time is spent in study and literary productions, for now the task is laid upon them of writing a book called The Kanakadea, containing the history of the place in which they live, Alfred University. Yet their social life is not neglected nor their physical development forgotten, for this class has produced a number of athletes. This is the year in which they hold an imporant celebration, and present the "Iron Knight of the Even Numbers " to the younger generation, called the Fresh- men. And now we have come to the last chapter, in which they are busy making their preparations to leave for other parts. Yet in this busy time they still refuse to ignore their social life, and their banquet is held at a place a few miles distant, called Wayland. Though not visited with excitement of pursuit as at the former times, it is a most enjoyable event. Thus the book ends with their departure in different directions, leaving us with a desire to follow each member of the class, and learn of their future successes. The Honor System ARTICLE I SEC. 1. The honor system in examinations is defined as that system in which, after the examination is set by the in- structor, the Student Body, through a committee, controls in- vestigations concerning dishonesty in examinations. SEC. 2. The honor system shall have in substance two motives: first, to create and firmly establish a sentiment among the students against any dishonest or unfair tactics in the tria of an examinationg secondly, it is not to be essential to the honor system, nor to be right, to expose the examinee to un- necessary temptation to violate his p edge. The student is re- arded as one to be shielded from such influences and to have his honorable tendencies carefully reinforced, not wrecked. Hence the examination is held in one place where all candidates are assembled. Conversation among the candidates and absence from the room are discouraged. They are cautioned to avoid even the appearance of evil. ARTICLE II Sac. 1. Each student must, in order to make his examina- tion valid, sign the following declaration: "I pledge my honor that I have neither given nor received aid in this examination." A similar statement may be required in case of a written ex- amination, essay or oration, but in case of no other work. SEC. 2. Violations of the honor system shall consist in any attempt to receive assistance from written or printed aids, or from any person or his tpaperg or any attempt to give assis- tance, whether the one so oing has completed is paper or not. This rule shall hold within an without the examination room during the entire time in which the examination is in progress, that is, until the time specified is expired. ARTICLE III SEC. 1. The members of the Student Senate shall be a committee to represent the Student body and deal with all cases involving violation of the honor system. The officers shall perform their respective duties on this committee as in meetings of the Senate. A TI LE IV R C SEC. 1. In case of apparent fraud in examination, it shall be the duty of the detector to speak to the offending party. Should the supposed offender show there is a mistake the matter drops at onceg otherwise it is carried to the Committee which shal conduct a thorough investigation, and if the accusation appears well-grounded the Committee shall summon the accused to a formal trial. SEC. 2. In the trial before the Committee both sides may be represented by a counsel from the student body. Counsel shall have the privilege of asking the witnesses Questions, but only such questions as will tend to bring out the acts of the case. Counsel shall not be allowed to make any argument, but the accused may say what he chooses in his own de ense. Five out of seven votes shall in all cases be necessary for conviction. SEC. 3. Should the accused be found guilty the Committee shall determine the punishment under the following regulations: tial! In case of violation of the honor system by a mem- ber o t e Senior, Junior or Sophomore classes the penalty shall be: first offense, suspension for one semesterg second offense-whether during first year or later-expulsion from co ege. my In case of first violation of said system by a member of the reshman class the penalty shall be public apxology by the offender before the students and Faculty during c apel ex- erciies before the offender is allowed to take up his regular wor . fcj All students who have been in college one year or more shall be gudged by the same rule as Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores. hose who have' been in college less than one year shall be judged by the rule that applies to Freshmen. ARTICLE V SEC. 1. Every student in the college shall be expected to lend his aid in maintaining this constitution. ARTICLE VI SEC. 1. This Constitution may be amended by a three- fourths vote of those resent at a mass-meeting, notice of which must be given at east one week previous. ARTICLE VII SEC, 1. The Committee shall make provisions for inter- preting the honor system to the members of the Freshmen class within three weeks after the opening of school each year. SEC. 2. Copies of this Constitution shall be posted in recitation rooms, on college bulletin boards, and in the Library. SEC. 3. This Constitution shall be published in the Hand- book, and in the University Monthly three times each year- the first number of the first semester, the last number efore the final examinations of the first semester, and the last num- ber before the final examinations of the second semester.

And Laura nodded approvingly. l H , H.u"Well, by Jove, we'll have Oro's if anybody, said Mary 1 . "I second the motion," piped up Florence Gorton from the rear. "That's why I didn't invite any men. for I knew there would be such a diHerence of oeilnion. Besldes, you re all too fi'ivolous," laughed Irene. " e can have much more fun a one." As she spoke, she busied herself ungacklng the luncheon and deftly spread it beneath the trees. S Qeuwlas a tall, athletic looking girl, but she had an air of femininity which lent a charm to her ersonality. This, added to her sweet disposition and lovable character, helped to make her the ideal of every Alfriedian. The sun, sifting through the young green leaves overhead, made a halo of her hair, the balmy spring breeze had lent roses to her cheeks and her deep, dark eyes seemed to refiect the fresh spring violets that grew about her. Her wholeibeing was resplendent with youth and in tune with nature, for it was spring time when life and hope begins anew. " Isn't this just lovely," said Florence Lyman. . , "It would be if we only had some soup-Now am t dat so? P-t? " cried Rosalie. . H "I brought some Limbergur especially for Alberta, .re- sponded their hostess laughingly, as the bevy of Jolly! girls seated themselves around the tempting lunch. Laura yman sat at Irene's right at the latter's special request, for, -though she was generally impartial, still they knew their dignified senior was first in her esteem. Alice G. was seated at her left as she shared equal favoritism. n There was Fanny Brown, too, looking as fresh and sweet as the spring beauties growing about her. Gertrude Hughes sat next, probably dreaming of Her man. Ruth Harris seemed happy and contented, sitting next to her Ifaura. Myrtle's laugh made the woods ring, and at regular intervals, Mhabel Barker's giggle could be heard above the hum of conversation. " Why, where's Adelene? " asked Grace Coon suddenly. " Oh ! probably she has gone off to study Spanish," sug- gested some one. Whereupon, there was great excitement till Adelene was discovered, almost hidden away between Marina and Mabel. " Why, where have all those olives gone? " asked Florence Brown. "You don't need to ask if you see any empty dish near Mary Hill," replied Elva. "You shall have all my olives, Queenie," said Lena, turn- ing to Florence. Thus the moments iiew qgickly by. They had finished almost to the last crumb fthe rick girls seemed particularl ravenousj and were about to seek other amusements, when all were petrified at the sight of an unusuallg ferocious-looking cow which was coming rapidly in their irection, evidently attracted by Gertrude Saunders' red hair. Even Irene, calm and collected as she usually was, seemed for a moment con- fused. Suddenly she cried, " Music hath charms to sooth the savage breast, Sing ! Ruth ! Sing ! " Sweetly and tenderly the notes poured forth, but in vain. The animal seemed charmed and slowly approached the terror- stricken group. Something must be done immediately. Sud- denly Laura's deep-toned a to swelled forth drowning all else. This proved affective, for as the first sound reached the anima it turned and fied in terror. For a moment there was a breathless silence-then Mary Foigltlsqbroke it by saying, " Oh, dear, girls, wasn't that simply aw u . "For a moment I thought my picnic would come to a sudden end, but the Alfriedian quartette seems to have saved the day, " said Irene, "Now that the danger is over we can all enjoy ourselves. There was a game of Canfield under a nearby tree, some went wading in the brook, others gathered iiowers and strolled down the paths admiring nature. All too soon the town clock was heard to strike the hour of six. "We ought to go, girls," said Dorothy Binns, "as we must get home early. ' "But before we go," said Ruth, " let's have a song for our dear hostess. " So as the last rays of the setting sun gilded the crests of the pines, the clear young voices filled the valley with the well known refrain: Irene, lrene. The Alfriedian girl is she, O, she's rare beyond compare, None so blithe, so debonair, As the latest, up to date Irene.

HOWAIID, Treasurer 52 Aiieghanian Lyceum LTHOUGH the Alleghanians lost a number of their best men last June, others have stepped in and filled up the ranks, so that the Lyceum has gone forward. The work of the early part of the year was broken into somewhat by several entertainments coming on lyceum nights, but during the winter and spring the work has been good. A lively interest in debating has been aroused, which we hope to see continued. We are reminded of the old times, when debating was the main object of lyceum work, and debates usually lasted until 12 or 1 oiclock. Last June the Alleghanian and Alfriedian Lyceums pre- sented Shakespeare's "A Mid-summer's Night's Dream." This was the most successful production ever witnessed by an Alfred audience. The Allies have had several "feeds," joint sessions and other good times during the year. One of the most notable of these was the "Alle-Friedian County Fair," which was held early in the first semester. It was an excellent presentation of the average country fair. Side shows were numerous, pink lemonade, pop corn, and " hot dogs," were to be had at various counters about the room. But the main attraction was the " big show," the most striking feature of which was the rendering by "Eddie " Teiper and "Martie " Bowne of their famous dialogue on " feet ball." Other good times have been enjoyed since then, which have made the work more pleasant, and have given us opportunity to become better acquainted with each other. 4- Q 4+ as To you who are so soon to leave us, we bid God-speed, and only wish to remind you, as you go out into the wide, wide, world, that " Perseverantia Omnia Vincit." 1910 H.

Treasurer MELVA CANFIELD, Gritic ' 56 Athena's HERE was a tumult in the Hower world, for on that day Athena, the goddess of wisdom, was to choose one of its number as her emblem. The rose blushed and ' nodded among her green leaves. The lily was a trifle paler than usual and shivered in her stately way. The blue- bells jingled noisily as they swung to and fro, jostling one another on the stem, while the marigold boldly held up her gorgeous head, as though challenging a greater beauty to rise. The pansy looked about in her knowing way, and ever and anon gazed thoughtfully at the sun, as if wondering how long she must wait. So through all the endless varieties of kind and color, the fiowers swayed and smiled, each conscious that she looked her very best. Only one blossom present was unconcerned. This was a little stranger flower, whose bright head peeped forth saucily from a hole in the wall, through which she seemed ready to withdraw at a moment's notice. A hush suddenly fell on the garden, for there in their midst stood the shining goddess. Not a leaf stirred as the bright helmeted head bent over flower after flower. Up and down, in and out, fiitted the swift figure, while the blossoms breathlessly awaited the decision. But they waited in vain, for at last, without making a choice, Athena raised her head, and leaned upon her spear. A "I do not find it," she said, and her voice was so low and silvery, that the flowers thought they heard only the murmur- ing of the brook. Her quick eyes glanced around in a farewell look, but this time she gave a glad cry and started forward. She stooped Choice and raised the now drooping face of the stranger fiower, that had forgotten to withdraw its head. "Oh, my sunny blossom " the voice caressed, and the goddess leaned close as though telling a wonderful secret, to which the flower seemed to smile its approval. Upon blowing a clear note from her flute, Athena was immediately surrounded by a band of white-robed creatures, who gazed silently, as the goddess broke the stem and raised to their view the reward of her search. "Maidens, behold our emblemf' she said. "Look, the stem is tall and strong, signifying that it will thrive in every kind of soil, and its buds are many showing that its season is long. The poor as well as the rich may possess this treasure, yet how beautiful is its face. A fringe of white, for purity and sweetness, borders a heart of gold for priceless worth. See, I place it on my shield above the motto, that it may adorn that which it symbolizes, ' Wisdom ruleth the universe! " Again the goddess raised the Bute to her lips, this time producing a blithe musical note, and myriads of voices burst into a glad song: " What sounds are fioating through the air ? Marguerite, Marguerite, Oh joyful sounds beyond compare, Fairest Marguerite. " The echoes from the hills Joined in the swelling chorus, till the air was filled with melody. Then gradually the song grew softer and softer, and the singers became more and more in- distinct, till all seemed to float away with the last words, "Athenaeans, all we greet, Hail to Marguerite .

FRENCH, Secrctao-y . C. B. NORTON, Treasm'm' W. H. LEACH, Critic 60 Orophilian Lyceum HEAVY and wave roughed sea presents a picture of ' power and activity. There we have the fierce energy . of the water rolling from billow unto billow. Yet each leaping, foam-capped wave has its trough, which how- ever seems to stimulate it for another mounting swell. Both crest and trough run in a forward direction and the generated power sweeps on. Such in a way is a picture of the progress of a strong spirit, its path will be filled with ups and downs, for that is life, but both will tend toward the coveted goal. Mistakes and periods of weakness show him his weak points and are stepping stones to strength and power. What is true of the individual is especially true of any institution or organization. As every individual has a certain personality or spirit, so the ideals and ambitions of any organ- ization surround it with a characteristic atmosphere. The Orophilian spirit has ever been the same in essence since that Lyceum was founded in the early years of Alfred University. It is a spirit of high ideals of individual and social efliciency. It is a spirit that is eager to make the necessary present sacrifices and expenditures of time and energy, in order to acquire for individual and social advancement a knowledge of parliamentary rules, the ability to read and speak in public, the power to think logically and correctly before an audience, and the forming of pleasant and hearty friendships where all self- conscious thoughts are lost. The fruits of this spirit are plainly seen. Every student generation that is accustomed to meet within those "Oro" walls acquires to a greater or less degree the above mentioned elements of progress. Elements that make powerfully for success when out in the activities of life. Elements that have sent their possessors to the top round of human achievement and placed them in the greatest positions of responsibility that a democratic people can have at their disposal. Indeed, the college man, wherever he goes or whatever station he occupies, is looked to as the leader. Qualified by these acquired capabili- ties with other things good, he can confidently accept this proffered position. Yet, like the ocean wave, we have had our times of de- pression, but the true Orophilian spirit soon makes the necessary adjustments and advances triumphantly and successfully, as one of the most helpful organizations that characterizes old A. U. We do not believe that evolving time and circumstances have eliminated the usefulness of our Lyceum. Far from that. We listen to the stirring words of visiting Alumnig we realize the grade of work we are doingg we look at the twenty-two eager and responsive new members we have this year gained, and we know that the Orophilian Lyceum is acquitting itself nobly like "a Workman that needeth not to be ashamed." 1910 G.

ELIGION is the reverence, the respect, and the zeal that a man has for those things that to him are ulti- mate realitiesg it is the vital force that spurs an indi- vidual to strenuous effort for the furtherance of his ideals. Religion must not be confounded with one'sideals, it is his attitude toward them. In serving his best conceptions, a man should work with all his facultiesg he should use his body, his mind, and his spirit as instruments for the advancement of what to him is of utmost consequence. Religion is not merely what one believes, or what one feels, or what one does, but is what one believes, feels, and does. In the rise of human life, undoubtedly, the emotions were developed sooner than the reasoning powers, consequently even the lowest types of humanity are endowed with emotions, while the intellect is a product of later culture. Every human individual, to a certain extent, possesses a religious instinct which is made manifest by each one's own peculiar talents. The emotions, being a possession common to all men, are the channels through which man's religious instinct is usually made evident. This is the reason that, to the majority of people, re- ligion seems to deal chiefly with the emotionsg and yet, the man with a cultivated intellect who reveals his religious zeal by a consecrated reasoning 'power may be just as religious as his more ignorant companions. In college life the chief stress is laid upon intellectual train- ingg and, unless the beginning student is made to realize that his intellect is as much a part of his religious equipment as his emotions, he is liable to feel that the more his mind is develop- ed, the more irreligious he is becoming. One of the chief labors of the Y. M. C. A. is to correct this erroneous idea, and to lead the student to see that the development of his reasoning power is a rising to the possibility of a better conception of divinity. It is not wholly without foundation that many parents fear to send their boys to college, thinking that they will become irreligious. In the course of one's college training his ideas are changing rapidly, and for one who has seen all his old ideals outgrown there is a tendency to lose zeal for the new con- ceptions. It is here that the Y. M. C. A. attempts to preserve the old zeal for the new ideals, it endeavors to show the young student that science is simply a search for God, and that creeds are but scientific formulas which in no way effect the ultimate reality of religion any more than the Ptolemaic theory affected the movements of the stars. Old creeds may become out-grown, new ones will be formed, and the Y. M. C. A. aims to instill into the hearts and minds of young college students the necessity of serving with diligence the highest ideals so long and only so long as they are their highest and noblest conceptions. It strives to bring men into close relations to, and into direct sympathy with, their fellow- meng and it endeavors to assist in the mutual development of man's body, his mind, and his spirit. . 9 Jl' 'lf W' -lb I In furtherance of these, our purposes, we have this year in connection with the Y. W. C. A. given to the students and people of Alfred a course of four first class lectures and enter- tainments, we have sent delegates to the International Student Volunteer Convention at Rochester and to the State Y. M. C. A. Convention at Syracuse, and we have maintaineda round table discussion upon a young man's personal problems. We meet in our room Sunday evenings and listen to lectures given by college professors on different lines of learningg we also have informal discussions in which the various vital problems of the day are treated in an impartial manner. No problem is deemed too difficult, no question too heretical, and no earnest inquiry for truth is regarded unworthy of our con- sideration, for we believe in the final triumph of righteousness and in the truth of the words of Jesus Christ, " And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." 1 I Y Y. W. C. A. HE Young Women's Christian Association-the name brings up a host of ideas. Does it not stand for the broadest religious views, world-wide co-operation in Christian work, and that which brings out the noblest and best in womanhood and kindles her ambitions to work with Christ in the building of His kingdom on earth ? To the Alfred college girl actively connected with Y. W. C. A. work, the Association means all this and much more. It fills the great need in the college for a common footing on a firm religious and ethical basis. It broadens the girl's scope of Christian work and makes her sympathetic and helpful to those less fortunate in moral and religious training. The work of the Alfred branch of the Association is carried on under the direction of a President and her cabinet of officers, consisting of Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Chair- men of Committees on Weekly Prayer Meetings, Bible Study, and Mission Study. During this year, bible classes have been engaged in studying The Life of Christ, The Life of Paul, and The Early Prophets. The mission study class has taken up the problems of the American immigrants and the home mission- aries, also the work of the foreign missions in Japan. During the fall, the student Secretary of New York and New Jersey visited Alfred. A reception for her was held in the Association rooms. She was pleased with- the work being done here and offered many helpful suggestions. Through her, the Alfred Y. W. C. A. feels a real connection with the world-wide Associa- tion. In December two members represented the Alfred Y. W. C. A. at The Student Volunteer Convention in Rochester. The delegates gained much enthusiasm in Association work, espec- ially missionary, and they brought back to the college new ideas and greater inspiration to work. This year, as in preceding ones, the Alfred Association will send several delegates to The Summer Student Conference at Silver Bay. Two great factors in conference results are inspiration and education, and these make the sending of delegates worth while to the Associa- tion and to the college in bringing it in closer contact with similar work and ideas of other colleges. In every way, socially, educationally and religiously, the Alfred Y. W. C. A. means a great deal to the college girl and is worthy of her hearty support.

OR a few years past debating in Alfred has been pract- ically a dead issue. The Lyceums have instituted a few informal affairs more interesting than instructive, but have failed to unite in putting out a college team. This year enough interest was aroused to organize a debating society to which all students are eligible and which has charge of all inter-collegiate debates. For the spirit aroused we are largely indebted to the Fresh- man class and to Professor Wilcox. Early in the year the Friday morning recitation hour of Freshman English was set aside for debating, all members of the class taking part in turn. The interest taken by the Freshmen was remarkable and the various library indices were kept busy by the eager, material- hunting students. The result was the formation of the Fresh- men Debating League. Debates were arranged with Buffalo Evening High School and Mansfield State Normal. In the mean time the upper classmen became interested and decided to organize to try their forensic ability. The old constitution was hunted up and a new one, suitable to present demands, was framed. Oiiicers were elected and plans made for preliminary debates. Challenges were considered and ac- cepted from Cornell University and from Keuka College. Alfred is a co-educational institution and the young ladies of the college were among those most interested in debating. Regulations, standing for some time, discouraged mixed teams. To avoid this difficulty hereafter, probably, at least one debate each year with some collegiate institution will be arranged for a girls' team. Cornell Alfred Debate Question "Resolved, "That Gov.

It is virtually "a government of the people, by the people, and for the people." Although the Clan purposes to furnish its members board at a moderate price, this is not its only or chief object. Be- lieving that college is the place and college days the time to gain ideals, form habits, and build character, it is and ever has been the purpose of the Clan to maintain a standard of moral and social conduct that is above reproach, thus proving of social, ethical, and moral benefit to its members. Although the record of the Clan has always been of a nature to speak creditably for its members and ofiicial Cabinet, it has been especially good during the past year, and though in opening our doors to new comers the principle followed is character not numbers, there are at present over thirty names on our roll of membership. And not only have the social and moral advantages accruing to its members, under the leader- ship of our worthy President, Herbert L. Cottrell, and our able Critic, William G. Pope, been of inestimable value, but excel- lent board has also been furnished at a moderate price, under the capable supervision of Manager G. J.

CRUMB, '11 HE Student Senate was organized in the spring of 1906 in response to a demand for some sort of a central organization of the student body as a whole to repre- sent it in affairs pertaining to the common interests of the students as a body. For this purpose three Seniors and tvso Juniors are elected each year by the Student body. Each of the two under classes chooses one associate member who acts as its representative in underclass affairs, but who has no vote. The principal functions of the Senate are carrying out the Campus Rules, regulating class contests, etc., and acting as the representative of the student body in its relations with the faculty. W. G. WHITFORD, '11, Secretary Associate Members W. B. CLARKE, '12 E. V. CHAMPLIN, ,13 Under the Constitution of the Honor System adopted by the student body in February of this year, the members of the Senate constitute the Honor Committee for investigating and trying all cases of supposed violation of honor which are to be reported to them. The efficiency of the Senate as a central organization, de- pends upon its representing the student body and to insure this representation, the students must not only make their wishes and sentiments known, but must help support, by act as well as by expression of feeling, the Campus Rules, the Honor System and whatever other measures that are for the best in- trests of the Alfred students, present and future. In other words, intelligent co-operation is the keynote to efficiency. 3 NAME BIRTHPLACE J. H. Baxter Dixie Norah Binns "Hold Heng1and" M. S. Bowne Deutschland Grace Burdick Little Rhody G. J.

Artistic Agricult Doubtful Out of sight llfe 'l History of Athletics at Alfred 6 6 HAT was my athletic amusement?" repeats the old student who left Alfred before the later sixties. "Why it was pretty closely confined to an agricultural line, like hoeing corn, picking potatoes, etc. We played on the university farm." So we learn that prior to 1866 there was in Alfred no form of Athletic past-time, more than one-old-cat, coasting on Pine Hill or possibly jumping the rope. But in that year a baseball team was organized and ahdefinite association formed to further those interests within the school. The latter teams had some little success in competing with neighboring town and high- school teams, and since that date baseball in some degree has always been known in Alfred. We may wonder why such an athletic past-time as croquet could be considered of such importance that a definite croquet club with president and subordinate officers should be organized as was in '67. We may understand this when we consider the objections of the Faculty toward baseball and like sports, which objections together with the danger, activity and other qualities which those games involved, kept them from becom- ing exactly popular. Then, too, a potent argument for croquet I was in the happy chance it offered for the intermingling of the sexes which was denied at almost every other time. Little wonder, then, that the experiment received the hearty support of at least the students, and that three other similar clubs were organized in the following year of '68. The question then before the Faculty was whether athletics in any form should be allowed within the school, and in the files of the Alfred Student, which from 1874 to '79 was the literary representative of the college, we find several interesting and impressive arguments both for and against freer participation in the various forms of athletics. This agitation may have been responsible for the maintenance of three distinct baseball clubs in June, '74, and for the organizing in November, '74, of a gymnasium association with Prof. A. B. Kenyon as its first' president. This enthusiastic student organization took upon itself the responsibility and expense of building upon the Cam- pus a gymnasium for the use of the students. Money and labor were contributed and the gymnasium was erected in '75. To raise the remainder of 'the debt incurred by building, the students joined in presenting, at a low admission fee, enter- tainments both in the way of gymnastics and recitations and plays. Soon, however, the enthusiasm waned and the hard-earned "gym " was so forgotten that in '79 the Student pleaded that the association which built it should take measures to prevent its "being demolished by the small boys of the grammar school." About '87 it was turned over to the University, and was fitted for a barn. Serving in that capacity at the rear of the Livery, it stands today as a souvenir of the past's enthusiasm. A great drawback to the cause of athletics was the lack of suitable grounds upon which to play. The grounds on Park Street, which were used, were rolling and uneven, and there were no edicient means of collecting admission fees. Realizing the importance of this, an athletic association was formed with trustees and incorporated into a definite and business-like organization. This association, upon its own responsibility, purchased in 1900 a field below the Terra Cotta works and graded and fitted it into a suitable athletic field. In '91 some of the students proposed to give an exhibition of the irregular training they had indulged in, and by a public contest, decide who were the best men in the various branches of track and field work. These were neither contests between l I l I I 86 classes nor between outside teams. There were individual com- petitors who went into it merely for the fun's sake. There was then no ground with suitable accomodations for such an undertaking and the races were run in Main Street. The spirit and success of these events was significant, and for a few years such a contest was held during each Commencement. In 1900 another definite step was taken by organizing a track team which would represent the college in intercollegiate events. This was made possible by the acquisition of the new athletic field. Only a few meets were held, however, and track work within the college was dropped until a class contest was carried out in 1908. This was entirely successful and the idea will undoubtedly be continued. Under the auspices. of the University Athletic Association, a plan was put into execution in May, 1909, which provided for the meeting each spring, of representative teams from the surrounding high schools in a track and field meet to be held at Alfred. The meet in its initial trial was a complete success and there is every reason why it should be continued. ' 'li' lk JF 'lf Sk -X' -X' In 1894 it was proposed that the school should put out a team which would meet other college teams in the modified game of English Rugby Football. At that time the game was young and was yet to be generally accepted as one of America's collegiate activities. A line-up was attempted in that year but a real team was first put out in '95. At that time the athletic association did not descriminate between students in the academy and those in the college as candidates for positions on the teams. Enough men were out to make two strong teams. Competition was keen and the player's familiarity with football science was gained in actual scrimmage. For a time the schedule was filled with games with neighboring town and high school teams. These proved worthy opponents. Later the schedule was made to take in such teams as Niagara, Buffalo, Colgate, Rochester Universities, and Mansfield and Geneseo Normals. With varying success the little college battled with these oponents, and in 1902 by virtue of the victory over Niagara and Buffalo, she claimed the championship of the Western New York colleges. U' 'lf if il- 'll' 'X' 'X- Judged on the score of games won or lost it may seem that athletics at Alfred have been unsuccessful. Yet in reckoning their merits or demerits it is unfair that only those branches which afford a glowing history may be considered worthy, Whatever the outcome, Alfred has' always proven herself a gamey and worthy loser. The most attractive characteristic of her athletic history is the loyal support and responsibility of the student body. Handicapped by her location, relative to other colleges, by the small number of candidates for positions, by the lack of adequate accomodations for visiting teams and of staple financial support outside the student body, and even by the lack of interest on the part of faculty and. alumni, the students have bravely initiated every plan for representative teams and have stood responsible for and met the financial and moral obligations necessary, not merely for the sake of the sport but because they believed that in that line they could truly represent the spirit of the college. 4 w 7 Y" ' Y 'I is 1 Football '09 HE season of '09 was probably the most successful one witnessed by Alfred in several years. Although there were but four regular games played, the Varsity came through those with a clean slate and the satisfaction of not being scored upon during the season. It must be said that the loss of a few of the men of 1908, made it rather a dull outlook at the beginning of the season and with the irregularity of practice, made it rather discouraging. But the new material soon showed themselves equal to all occasions, and the result was a very successful eleven. The first game was with Mansfield at Alfred and although the weather was sultry and warm, the Varsity showed their condition to be fine, and after the first half the score stood 12 to 0 in Alfred's favor. The second half ended with no more scoring, but at no time was the Varsity's goal in danger. Chamberlin Military School was the next to fall in line and l although they were out-weighed by a small margin, put up one of the speediest games seen on the athletic field in some time. But their tricks were foiled many times and Alfred's line wasn't to be touched, so the result was 10 to 0 in favor of Alfred. Then came the second game with Mansfield on their field, 'Y and to the surprise of the Varsity, they had been much strengthened, and with the enthusiastic crowd to back them, proved a tough proposition. Although the Varsity crossed Mansfield's goal in the last half, they lost the ball on a fumble and the game ended with no score. Now came the big proposition, Hobart who had won from Union and Niagara, and had also made a great showing against Rochester and Hamilton. It was discouraging to face what seemed sure defeat, especially after missing a week's practice over Election. Hobart proved to be the one due for a surprise, for Alfred put up one of the greatest fights seen on the Hobart campus in years, twice carrying the ball to Hobart's ten yard line, and at no time being in danger herself. This game, like the last, ended with no score, but under the circumstances was considered a victory for Alfred and caused her to be acknowledged in the football world by many of the larger colleges. It is a shame that the season ended here for it was plainly seen that the fellows were just beginning to understand each other, and to work together perfectly. l Manager McMaster Captain Sarvey 89 e Base Ball I 909 LL THE elements conspired against our base ball team last year. Cold, rainy weather spoiled many needed hours of practice and shortened the schedule moreover. The previous year several of our best players had graduated and it was up to the captain to develop new material to fill three or four infield positions of importance. We had the captain to do the job and we had the material, but what was lacking was the oppor- tunity for development. Consequently, the season opened and the team was not whipped into shape. Again there was lack of team work because of the fact that it was didicult to pick out the players. On fielding the boys showed up in fine form. In fact, for the most part, the fielding was fast and clean. There was good, heady base-running if a fellow was fortunate enough to safely hit the initial sack, but the weak part of the team Ctis sad to relatej was their inability to his the ball. No matter how fast a team may field, they have got to pound the leather to win games. Hit and win go to- gether in base ball. Unfortunately our boys did not get i enough batting practice and the sphere looked surprisingly small when it came shooting across the pan. Manager Bacon 419105 Another thing discouraging to the fellows was' lack of sup- port. Little interest or loyalty was manifested by the student body in general. Attendance was small and the fellows could not play with the vim and alertness which usually characterizes college athlt-tes. The schedule included games with Keuka College and Mansfield and Geneseo Normals. Alfred won but one game, that from Mansfield. The games scheduled for commencement week were post- poned on account of rain. THE LINE UP Ji 159-Ig'Xg2f:'PH' gPitchers. G. A. PLACE, lst. JACK RYAN, V. P. ATKINSON, D. V. SARVEY, is' S' M. S.

Tosvasurer NE of the great problems, which the Athletic Associa- tion has ever been confronting this year, is the prob- lem of financing its activities. In many colleges athletics are supported by atax which isincluded with- in the tuition fee, thus insuring adequate resources at the com- mand of the athletic organization. At Alfred, it has been de- creed otherwise, still, many believe that such a step embodies the only ultimate solution of the problem. In past years various schemes have been put into operation, which, at the most, were but temporarily successful. At the beginning of this year it was realized that a reform in some manner was an absolute essential. After some delay, a plan was brought for- ward by the directors of the association and finally adopted by the association. The basis of this plan is membership in the association, which each student is obliged to procure, and itis upon this one factor that the success of the entire system depends. To be- come a member the ladies must pay an annual fee of three dollars, the gentlemen one of five dollars. Membership entitles one to admission to all games and contest held under the management of the association, and also permits the holder to compete for positions upon any of the athletic teams. If the present year may be taken as a standard, this system is one big step in advance of anything hitherto promulgated in this department at Alfred. Girl's Basket Ball URING the past year the managers tried to arrange games with several of the girls' teams in western New York, but for reasons, too numerous to mention, they succeeded in only one instance. This game was played at Geneva with the William Smith College girls on March 14th. It was with a great deal of anticipation, mingled with doubts as to favorable results that the girls left home for Geneva, but they hoped for the best. When once their suits were on and the girls were on the fioor, their strength and courage came to the front, making them feel very much at home. From the instant that the whistle was blown, each girl was on her tip-toes with every muscle quivering and both eyes on the ball. It had not been in play for more than one minute when it was learned that " drib- bling" the ball was prohibited. As this was one of the girls' good points, their spirits were dampened. Not for long how- ever, for two or three baskets were soon shot and they saw that they did not need to exercise that stunt in order to win. The score was 15-4 in favor of Alfred at the end of the first half. When the whistle blew for the second half, the Alfred girls found themselves up against a new lineup. This, however, did not make them less determined to double their side of the score and keep the opposite side down to four. While they failed to accomplish the former they did succeed in preventing a single basket to be thrown for William Smith. When time was called the score was 22-4. In spite of the keen disappointment which the Geneva girls suffered, they showed themselves to be ideal hostesses and they will always hold a warm place in the Alfred girls' hearts for their courteousness and hospitality. It is hoped that they may be the guests of the Alfred girls sometime in the future on a similar occasion.

It was an ideal day for such an occasion, and the several teams entered the contest with a great deal of spirit and enthusiasm. Ten High Schools from adjoining counties were represented. The competition was keen and the display of team work made evident a long and vigorous training. Warsaw came down with a large delegation of men, mature and well trained in athletic sports, and it was through their strenuous efforts that the banner was captured for the Warsaw High School, on a total of 141149 97 points Olean came in for second place with 28 points, while Alfred Academy with a total of 23 points made a close contestant with Olean for second Other schools represented were, Wellsville, Richburg, Hornell. The success of this event was largely due to the Alfred Alumni who contributed to it so generously The results of such an event in the establishment of a strong reputation, and in advertising the school, are without dispute. And we as students of the University feel that the efforts of the Alumni are and will, in the future, continue to be richty rewarded.

Brown iii The German Club G. M. Fass, President A. E. STUKEY, Sec1'eIm'y ANY attempts have been made to organize a club in which the members could acquire freedom in the use of German, and just as many attempts have been in vain. For a time interest and enthusiasm would keep up life in the club, but soon the novelty of the affair would wear away and the interest would lag. At the first meeting this year a very interesting program was given and officers were chosen to plan out the work and run the club, on a more systematic basis. The aim as hereto- fore has been to make the sessions instructive as well as enter- taining, and this year the Club has attained a degree of success in its work not attained previously. This success has not been due alone to the ofiicers who play a small part in the life of such an organization, but to the members as well, who have responded so cordially and enthusiastically to the appointments of the program committee. On account of so many other college interests it was thought best to have only one session a month. The programs have consisted of articles on early German History, together with the legends and myths so dear to the Germans themselvesg current events, which have made life in Germany today more real to usg introduction to the great German authors, educators and artistsg and last but not least, a little touch of German song and story. Various schemes have been tried to encour- age conversation in German, and while this is one of the hard- est features of the work there has been a general willingness to participate. Professor Titsworth has taken a deep interest in the work this year, and with the advances made under his supervision, the Club can look forward to a very successful future. We ask the support of all students interested in German, to help make this a bit of real German life. It requires practice and patient effort to acquire any thing of real worth, and while the members are far from having attained suflicient German to carry on conversation or even understand spoken German, yet we are making some progress. It is in the Club, where a greater freedom is felt than in the class room, that German can be learned by putting what knowledge we have into actual practice.

The object of the Club, as stated in the constitution is "to promote the fellowship of the members and their knowledge of science, art, literature and philosophy, by such ways and means as may from time to time be devised." The Club has held many profitable sessions at which dif- ferent members of the faculty have lectured and taught. Mem- bership was orignally by vote of the club, but as all persons were admitted to the sessions the necessity became obsolete. Dr. Main has been the president from the first. The Secre- tary is Professor Binns. Sessions are held in the Seminary building on alternate Wednesdays at eight o'cloek. Language and Literature Seminar HIS organization, though one of the lesser hand-maidens of the institution, is important among those enterprises which have had their conception during the past year. As the name, Language and Literature Seminar, im- plies, it is a special advanced class along these lines, being com- posed of interested students and professors, and meeting monthly. The subject chosen for this year's work was "The Drama," and papers have been presented by the various professors and by students. The first meeting was held December 14, 1909, when Miss Hart introduced to the members The Classical Greek Tragedyg at the next session she led in Ancient Comedyg and at meetings since, Professors Titsworth and Wilcox have con- ducted the Seminar, the former speaking on the Classic French Drama and the latter upon the Elizabethan Drama in England. All the sessions have been instructive as well as entertaining. ' The interest has increased steadily from the first, and it is to be expected that in following years, various other subjects coming under the plan of operation will be considered. The Alfred niversity Monthly BOARD OF EDITORS Editor-in-chief, Ford S. Clarke, '10 Assistant Editor: Jesse H. Baxter, '11 Associate Editors: Laura K. Lyman, '10 W. Gates Pope, '10, Ruth L. Phillips, '11 Adelene Tltsworth, '12 Arthur C. Whitney, '13 Business Manager, Jacob H. Randolph, '10 Assistant Business Manager, Burr D. Straight, '11 The Alfred University Monthly ls published monthly during the college year by a board of editors chosen from the four classes. The aim of the magazine is to en- courage literary work among the students: to be a true mirror of the college life and spiritg to offer a means of communication among the alumni and friends of the University. To these ends contributions to any of its depart- ments from both undergraduates and alumni are solicited. HAT is the aim of our college magazine? It is to furnish a medium of expression where the student can say to the whole student body what he feels about any phase of life-religious, social, athletic,- which has anything to do with student thought and activity, 9: place where the student can give expression to his opinions on any problem in college life or life in general. Our college is small enough so that we scarcely need a news department in our paper unless it be to let the Alumni know what is going on at Alfred. But one large field which the "Monthly" should fill, is being the incentive for healthy literary activity, the same as our athletic teams furnish an incentive for athletic activity. Students should compete as lively for places as contributors to their college paper as they do for places upon their athletic teams, for college students are supposed to be thinking men and women and that is what is essential to a good magazine of any sort-people with something to say. Good stories, even, must have something in them which leaves a spur for further thought and inspirations, and not be the means of mere pastime. Some students seem to take college life as a joke and shirk all the responsibilities that go with it, and just in so far as that spirit is prevalent the "Monthly " can not be a true mirror of our college life. The people who enter into these student activities are the ones who are gaining experiences which will make them more efficient later on. Writing for the college paper which one's fellow students are going to read, cultivates careful thinking and clear expres- sion of thought which are essential qualities in a man who expects to mix with other men. One department of our "Monthly " which presents a hitherto unsolved problem is the Alumni department. There should be a more vital contact be- tween Alumni and undergraduates through our college paper. How to make this contact is the question. The Alumni are the upperclassmen of the larger Alfred student body and should have something to say to the rest of us through " our " college paper. 101 P 9 , A-1 Agricultural School HE State School of Agriculture at Alfred University, Alfred, N. Y., was established by act of the Legisla- ture in 1908 and approved by Governor Chas. E. Hughes, May 6, 1908. At that time 375,000 became available for the purpose of erecting all necessary buildings and buying a farm of not over 300 acres, buildings to be erected and farm purchased upon the approval of the Board of Mana- gers, the State Commissioner of Agriculture and the State Architect. After specifications had been made for the school building and the barn it was seen that 375,000 would not build and equip the necessary buildings, since the school and barn unequipped cost respectfully, 342,000 and 320,000. Therefore, an additional appropriation of 340,000 was made by the Legislature of 1909 for the purpose of erecting a dairy house, a green-house, and other necessary buildings and providing necessarylequipment. The maintenance, as voted by the Legislature and approved by the Governor for year 1909-10 was 320,000. Doubtless the State will do equally well or better for the year, 1910-11. A 230-acre farm, one-half mile from the site of the School buildings, was purchased. Some sixty head of cattle, and horses of the various types are kept on the farm, a majority of which are registered.' Variety tests of corn, oats, barley, hay crops, etc., will be carried on at the Farm this summer. A young orchard of 200 trees is just getting under way. A spray- ing demonstration on 5 acres of bearing orchard is in progress. The barn, equipped with modern conveniences, is building. Such an equipment forms a most valuable addition to the in- structional and demonstrational work, in the class-rooms and laboratories of the School. A four-storied, 50x100-foot school building of brick and stone has just been completed. Its ten laboratories are planned for the following purposes: for soil and plant work, stock and machinery judging, forge and wood work, field crops, physics, agricultural botany, zoology, cooking, sewing and laundry. Besides these rooms are the class-rooms, assembly rooms and agricultural library. Regular work was taken up in Agricul- tural Hall, Jan. 24, 1910. Two additional laboratories will be opened in the fall, namely, the dairy house and the green-houses. The dairy house work will exemplify all phases of marketing dairy pro- ducts in the common forms of milk, butter and cheese. Each student, in the dairy laboratory, will make butter and cheese, will test milk, cream, skimmilk, buttermilk, whey, butter and cheese, and will have the opportunity of using the best modern dairy equidment that is practicable on the farm and in small butter and cheese factories. Special attention will be given to the production on the farm of high grade, sanitary milk ' The Green-houses will be arranged with a View to making them a practical plant laboratory, in which the principles of plant growth can be demonstrated. Each student will have his individual plot and his individual experiments. This laboratory will in some measure offset the disadvantages of holding the school during the winter, when so little can be done with plants out-of-doors. N u.

Binns as the director. Although the school was naturally small at first, attendance has gradually increased until at present there are 45 students enrolled in the various courses. The main work of the school is divided into two depart- ments, Technical and Art. These naturally overlap somewhat, as the art student needs some technical work and the technical student some art work, in order that each may understand the scope of Clay-Working and its wide rangeof possibilities. The Technical department contains a full equipment of machinery for handling clays of all kinds, including dry and wet pans, brick machines, dry press and repress for working brick clays and shales, andblungers, ball mills, fitter press, potter's wheel, etc., for working pottery clays. There is also a well equipped mould shop in which all kinds of plaster moulds are made. The technical course is practically the same as the regular college scientific course except for the ceramic labora- tory work and ceramic theory. The freshman spends four hours weekly in the laboratory, during which time he grinds clays for testing, makes plaster moulds, and makes himself familiar with the machinery and methods used in clay-working. The sophomore takes up the calculation of clay bodies in addition to having the same amount of laboratory work as the freshman. His laboratory work consists in making glaze trials, testing clays and becoming familiar with various glaze and body compositions and their use. The junior takes a course in the advanced theory of Ceramics. In addition to the same amount of laboratory work as the freshman and sophomore, his laboratory work consists in working out original problems, those which come in from various factories throughout the country, being referred to him for solution. The senior spends most of his time in original research work for his thesis. A certain amount of outside reading in Ceramic literature is also required. At the end of the course the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Ceramics is conferred, which is parallel with the ordinary college Degree of Bachelor of Science. The Art department has for the past three years been under the charge of Miss May S. Haydock. The students who elect this work undergoa thorough training in design, drawing and modelingg and in addition take the sophomore work in ceramic theory. Practice teaching is done and the work of the Department of Education in the University is followed. The degree conferred is Bachelor of Philosophy in Ceramics. ' 109 Alfred Theological Seminary Abram Herbert Lewis U HE Rev. Abram Herbert Lewis, D. D., LL. D., occu- pied the chair of Church History and Homiletics in the Theological Department of Alfred University for sev- eral years. Though called to other fields of labor, he continued, at intervals, to give lectures to the students at Alfred on subjects connected with his professorship. During the last few years of his life he had given courses of lectures to the students of Alfred Theological Seminary, by appointment of the Board of Directors of the American Sabbath Tract Society, upon the special request of the Seminary. Dr. Lewis was born at Scott, N. Y., November 17, 1836, and died in Westerly, R. I., November 3, 1908. After complet- ing courses of study at Milton, Wisconsin, he entered Alfred University, and was graduated at this institution in 1863 with the degree A. B. He received later from the same University the degrees, A. M., D. D., and LL. D. For some time he pur- sued graduate studies in Church History in Union Theological Seminary, New York. Nearly a quarter of a century was de- voted to pastoral labors in Westerly, R. I., Shiloh, N. J., Al- fred Station, N. Y., and Plainfield, N. J. The last pastorate extended over more than sixteen years. As a fitting tribute to the memory and name of Doctor Lewis, his children have established The Abram Herbert Lewis Lectureship, of Alfred Theological Seminary. This provides for a course of lectures each year, by able men. The lecturers for 1909-10 are the Rev. Theo. L. Gardiner, D. D., Plainfield, N. J., Editor of the Sabbath Recorder, and Professor J. W1 A. Stewart, D. D., of the Rochester Theo- logical Seminary. He was a member of the American Society of Church His- tory and of the American Historical Association. His students, won by his charming personality, found in him a ripe and cultured scholar, a teacher who could inspire as well as instruct, a wise and sympathetic counselor, and a genial and helpful friend. Dr. Lewis will be remembered as a clear and vigorous thinker, a forcible and scholarly writer, an eloquent and im- pressive speaker, and as a man strong in that gentleness that makes one great. Try I sit by my fire in reiiective mood, And search the face of life's strong rower, Or I look for his power to drive thru the flood, Till I see his pull at the oar. Visions success almost despairing, As stranded without attainment's scope: Yet an effort sets courage repairing, And Boats ambition on a raft of hope. Then rise, lose not by idle pining The glory of the morning's shiningg Honest effort brings something done, Try! if success by you be won: The jewel's but in the hard rock's liningg- And you'd be rich, tho' there be but one. The F ate of the Freshmen Last night, as I lay on my pillow, Strange fancies around me did fiy, I dreamed that I saw all the Freshmen, Each bearing a package of dye. "Do you ask me what shade we shall dye them? Don't you think of all colors e'er seen, No matter what color we dye them So long as it covers the green." We dipped them in red, blue, and purple, I dreamed that we labored till morn, Yet in spite of our trouble those Freshmen Were as green as the grass on the lawn. Oh Freshmen, we wish we could help you, But candor with pity we blend, We only can warn you sincerely, You're doomed to be green to the end. The Brick Girls' Lament Gone are those hagpy nights of yore, Those haappy nig ts last June, When we' go out and walk till four, In the pines by the light of the moon 5 Gone are those lovely little spreads, Those dances on the sly, For we're all upon the second fioor, We'll have to learn to fiy, Yes, gone are those dreamy moonlight walks Gone are those confidential talks, We'll walk the good old leddge no more, We're all upon the secon door ! No walking even until ten, Or sitting on steps at chapel, It's improper to be out with men, Young ladies should be careful. In that bare old reception room, And only once a week, We have to sit and entertain Where one can hardly slpeak, Emgty those benches in t e pines ! ' T e Steinheim is desertedg Lonely those paths where once we strolled, An laughed and fussed and flirted, Yes, we'll walk the good old ledge no more, We're all upon the second Hoor l Most faithful lives, grown old in service here, Where service bears a fruit which should present The world with something better, more refined, And tempered to the use of those who have No helpers and no leaders, to uphold The true and free opinion, to oppose The works of darkness, ignorance, and wrong, Much have you done toward that end. We find in other walks of life no men more true, More brave, and consecrared to their work Than you. We have a common footing far Above the plain of master and the man, In that we all are seekers after truth And knowledge, that we seek to reach a state, Where we may choose with wisdom and posses As much as we are able of the whole, Of infinite experience. We look To you as friends who have been on this search For light and truth a longer time than we, And, ooking back, may end a hand to help Thru' doubtful places which we face without A guide-post, tho' we have a guike-book which, Ha f mastered, asks the aid o more mature And fertile minds, who, having passed before Thru' some such place, may point to what is best, What interesting, void of meaning, what To pass, to read, to stud! and absorbg Who seek to give or len some system to " A Reverie M The labyrinth of formulas of life. Yet in the roll of worthy names upon The walls and tablets of all history, We find no man who wholly was without Some blemish or some failingg who defied All criticismg or who held a place Where, as an individual, he could With justice, censure those as right as he, At once, sincere and insincere as he, Who was without a prejudice, who had A mind so broad it took all points of view, Save one, who taught the world to hold a life Most noble that could love the most, forgive The greatest wrong, or find some good in allg Some worth where worthlessness and wrong appeared We feel your prelludiceg you seem to fail At times, to reac our point of view, and we Fail also to appreciate defenseg Of rinciples we do not understand. Stilxln each may be as right or wrong as each. We criticise your weaknessesg we old That we should stand as man to man without Confusion of our standards, while we mean To honor and to emulate the truth, Sincerity, and justice you express. Such then is our opinion, tho' uncounched In terms of either fiattery or fear. L. R. C.-'12 SENIOR CLASS BANQUET Wayland, N.

THREE PROMINENT CITIZENS BADLY INJURED. One evening last week four of our most prominent citizens. the Misses Fucia and Elizabeth Randolph, Clar- ence Greene, and Prof. W. D. Wilcox, started for a Christian Endeavor Social in Elm Valley. They were conveyed by means of one small, rubber-tired runabout, and one seemingly innocent and well-behaved member of the equine family. All went well until, in a particularly lonely part of the road, the horse became frightened by a shooting star and suddenly broke into a run. The occu- pants of the carriage made every effort to check the beast in his headlong flight but were unsuccessful. The climax soon came. The horse stumbled over a toothpick which someone had carelessly thrown in the road and fell. The carriage was overturned and the horrified occupants were thrown, some here and some there. Mr. Greene was so fortunate as to escape injury. This gentleman, with great calmness and foresight, secured the horse to a tree and hastened to the nearest house for aid. When he re- tumed with the farmer, he found that the plight of his companions was even more terrible than he had supposed. All of Miss Fucia's hairpins were broken, while Miss Elizabeth's shoestrings were horribly mangled. Prof. Wilcox, however, was even more unfortunateg his beauti- ful VanDyke beard was so badly injured that, as we have since heard, he was obliged to have it amputated. The kind-hearted farmer offerad to take the party home While he went after the equipage, they gathered up the remains of the carriage, tying them in a handkerchief which Prof. Wilcox generously offered for the purpose. In a few minutes the farmer returned with his oxen and stone-boat, and the party started on their homeward journey, leading the refractory horse behind them. When they arrived in Alrred. they presented the horse and the remains of the carriage to the Freshman class to help defray the expenses of the class banquet. OUR LITTLE ONES. W. S. Whitford and sister Fanny were at home in Brookfield over the week. Clifford Chipman is serving as an apprentice at the Alfred Machine Shop and is looking forward to a part- nership with Rogers at some future date. Tough Guy Levi made a Quick trip to Syracuse a. few days ago. Norris and Makeley were arresetd by the sheriff last evening for disturbing the peace and were fined three cents each It is hoped that this will be an example to the wild boys of the neighborhood. One of the most social events of the Pcdunk Hollow season occurred last Vllednesday evening when Gertie Saunders and Ella Crumb entertained some thirty of their little friends at a Mother Goose party. After many games had been played, dainty refreshments of cracker-jack and water were served. Last evening an enthusiastic audience listened to a Symphony concert by Carter's famous orchestra Since its last appearance this orchestra has been greatly strengthened by the addition of the well-known violinist, M. Placini. We hear on good authority that Cook is about to make another search for the Pole. The expedition is to be conducted by Kernel Brown, of cold storage fame. Here's luck to the Kernel and his Cook. Governor Willson of Wellsville was compelled to make his speech on "The Lecturer's Art" before the ladies of the Canfield Club, one evening last winter.

Lecturer on women A prize fighter Cloak model A prize fighter In same place soon suffrage j You Too There was once a fresh young freshman who thought he was just "it," And when he came to Alfred he was sure he'd make a hit. So he swaggered round the campus, ignored his cap of green, And thought himself a bigger man than Prexy or the Dean. Well the fellows all decide that this freshman they would fix, So tlgey liook him out one night and made him sing before the ric , Then thgy ducked him in the fountain, till he was cold and num , And finished ug by giving him what " Paddy gave the drum." And all you ot er freshman green, take care what you're about Or the O. M. A. will get you if you don't watch out. Thege divas once a gay young Brick girl who was noisy in the a s, And she'd stay out after hours, and on week days receive calls, So the precept told the facultv, and then they called her down, And said she must reform or she'd have to leave the town. So you Brick girls take a warning-Be careful what you do, Or you'll set t e gossips of this town talking about you. When Prexy's up to dinner don't make a lot of noise, Don't stay out after hours or go around with boys, But be prudish, prim and proper, for you know without a doubt The preceptress will get you if you don't watch out. In the room off of the librar a loving couple sat, And, seated close together, had a litt e chat, But at the most exciting moment, the door was opened wide, And these lover's never noticed that some one stepped inside, An elderly lady with a visage stern and grin, Who, despite the maidens pleading looks, without warning banished him. So you fussers just take warning and when you want to spoon, Sit up in the Steinheim or in the Pines beneath the moon, But when you're in the library take heed what you're about Or the librarian will get you if you don't watch out. There was once a careless student, who as he came from class, Tore a paper into little bits and threw it on the grass, And a very awful thing did happen to this man, For you see he should have known enough to throw it in the can, For all around these little cans stand neatly painted green, And on them are these words, "Please help us keep the cam- pus clean." So don't throw spearmint on the walks, or cigarette stumps on the ground, Don't leave candy bags or papers for the wind to blow around, But vghen walking round the campus take heed what you'r a out Or the janitor will get you if you don't watch out If you're out, and feeling pretty good at 2 or 3 a. m., Don't go ug to see the Brick girls and try to sing for them, Although t e girls would all enjoy this touching serenade, For Romeo, the gallant, a lot of trouble would be made, To the Faculty it's more serious than just a prank absurd, When in the " wee small hours " you're out singing like a bird. Don't smoke around the campus, or loaf around down town, Or cut a lot of classes and let your marks run down, But lgeepz pretty quiet on what you do and don't tell things a ou , Or the faculty will get you if you don't watch out lVlordant's Commencement Honors UGH Mordant swung down the street and across the campus to the rooms reserved for the secret society of which he was president.. A group of college fellows watched him from an upper window of the big dormi- tory. "D- that senior, and his money, and his brains !" exclaim- ed one of them as that interesting youth disappeared behind the wide doors of the frat-house. "I want Kain to be valedictorian of our class. He has studied and studied and deserves the place, and it makes me mad to feel that without half trying this fop can take it from him. It isn't right for one man to work so hard for honors and another to reach out and snatch them away." "Mordant isn't half the man that Kain is," commented another. "He spends his time gambling and courting, and no- body knows how he gets his lessons. I think he ought to fall a victim to his own pleasures. What do you think ? turning to the four fellows near him. They silently agreed and the five took hold of hands and swung three times around like a veritable conclave of evil fairies, for each knew, though the thought was not put into words, that they were to lead Mordant on in his career of dis- sipation until he could no longer hope to win commencement honors. ' Perhaps the five were jealous of Mordant's successes, per- haps they were sincerely eager for Kain to win out, who knows? But they were no mean opponents, for they too could play the game, and one of them managed to be on hand whenever Mor- dant wished a partner for cards or someone to play pool or billiards with him, and it became the fad to play for drinks. This had been going on for more than a month and it was now April, when one evening, as Mordant was preparing to go to the Hall as usual, the maid knocked and handed him a small envelop. He eyed the missive curiously and then opened it. This is what he read:- Please come over tonight at 8:30, I have some news for you. Helen C. A flush crept up over his face and his hands clenched " How can I go to her ?" he asked himself fiercely. But after consulting the mirror he changed his tie, took his hat and coat and started up the street toward the girl's club house, thinking meanwhile of the times when Helen and he had climbed the apple trees together or skated on the old millpond, and how ever since she had been the standard to which all other girls must measure. But by what standard would she measure him ? Helen was waiting for him in the cozy parlor, and his practised eye assured him that she was faultlessly dressed. "I was sure you would come," she told him. "I was lonesome and hungry for one of our old chats, and really I have something to tell you, though I ment to keep it for at least half an hour, -unless you cannot wait?" -and there was appeal in the quiet words. "I'll stay 'till closing time," he responded promptly. One of his greatest charms lay in his power to give himself up to the joy of the moment, and it was comfortable to be with Helen again. He had believed she would rather he would stay away. They talked of old times for a while, and together they made one of those strange chafing-dish concoctions, and Hugh straightened out some French for her. Then, as they finished the " monkey," as the dish was called, she asked,- " You remember what you told me when you came home to see me graduate from high school three years ago ?" "Yes," he answered slowly,-"that I'd do anything for you." "Does that promise still hold good ?" " Of course." " She waited a moment, perhaps to make sure of herself. "Then I'll tell my news," she continued, "and, unless college has changed you more than Ibelieve it has, it will make you eager to win. There's a gang of fellows, I don't know how many, who, for various reasons, want Kain to give the final Commencement oration. And they are playing upon your love of games and a good time to put you out of the race. You watch and see if it is'nt so. And, Hugh," rising and putting her hand upon his broad shoulder, " I want you to win out." He put his hand over hers. "You're right," he said slowly, "I've been a fool, it's time I cut it out, and I'll try. May I come here again '!" "As often as you like," she answered, and turned to the window where a host of bright stars kept watch. And together they looked out upon the quiet night until the clock in the-hall struck ten, the time when college maids must say good-night. The five were baffled. Mordant seemed to have lost all in- terest in pool and poker, and he objected to drink because it made his head ache. They found out that he studied some, and spent some time at the girls' hall. In vain they tried to beguile him with new pleasures. This was not the careless senior they had reckoned with, but a firm, purposeful man. Examination returns placed Mordant at the head of his class, and his professors praised his brilliant work. Commencement evening, when the closing oration had been applauded in the large theatre building, Mordant made his way to the box where Helen sat and together they passed through the noisy throng, out into the quiet night where the starry host again kept its silent watch. -G. M. H., '12. The Spirit of the Corn N the upstairs room of a little ranch, a young man sat be- fore a rude, pine table. His weary, downcast face, his listless fingers resting on a page of designs, and his slightly bent shoulders told why he was out in the healthful, free west. From below came the scraping of a " fiddle " and the scuflie of the feet of country folks. " Why am I on earth ? To be a burden ? When each one already hasa load to support! Nothing is right. Ihave am- bition but no health, and little money. I was not educated for practical life and now have no right to be called a man. I haven't seen a person here who has not a secret sorrow that dogs him at every turn, and which the most trivial incident does not bring afresh to his mind. But these sturdy men and women here have stronger characters than I, and remind me that " still water runs deep." Glancing up, and seeing his somber refiection in a little mirror, he arose in despair, and ran quickly down the rickety, back stairs. When out doors, his brooding self-consciousness vanished and he was drawn into and became a part of the night. The moonlight subtly spreading over each indentation of the valley, the dark shadows quivering, and the regal, whispering acres of corn were the gifts of the Spirit of peace, who claimed the night. " How can I rebel against Him who is so wise as to give us this beautiful world ! This holy peace always comes when I am most bitter, and makes me feel glad that I, also, am in His plan." With such words he strode on into the corn, forgetting himself, for he was a dreamer and very young. Still further on he plunged, pausing only to brush away a broken ear of corn, or a spider's web. When tired, he stopped and looked about him. There was nothing to be seen but the tops of countless fields of corn. " Which way did I come? Tell me spirits of the breezes, how shall I get home ?" A low wind, arising, moaned to him and could not tell the the way. A soft, light hand was placed over his eyes and a low, sweet voice said, "Promise me not to look, and I will guide you. The way is far and untraceablef' Promising, and taking the hand, he vias led, in a dreamg for a sweet odor pervaded the air and the guide seemed to at- tract the peace and purity of the night by her magnetic person- ality. Like the silver water-fall in the deepest woods came her voice, " It is not right to be melancholy and morose. Do your life work courageously. Let men sneer, if they will. You will have to answer only for your own time and talents. Do not waste vitality for something that is not worth while." The man could not speak for he was held, entranced, by awe of this personal knowledge. " Keep on with your designsg they are too novel to be neg- lected. But put your thoughts into execution and do not day dream." He could feel now, that they were out of the corn for cool air and open fields confronted him. " Who are you, guide ? I thank you, who know my inmost desire and fancies." A gentle pressure of his hand and she was gone. It seemed that there was a bright rift in the moonlight, and that the corn was sighing drowsily. -R. H., 'l3. AW A V Ply I - 1 1 l 'A vfgxl "-3...'.
