1 .Thou conyest as the memory of ix dream,
FTER undergoing, for several months, the trials peculiar to the editors of a year book, we present
this fifth volume of the Kanakadea to the world and particularly to our Alma Mater. 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.
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.

Assistant Instructor in Piano.
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
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
" 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,
" 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

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
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 !

The History of the Class of l9l 2
When Freshmen in this college town,
We chose the orange and the brown
And started out to win renown.
Yes, we did l
We dug up greenish procs in autumn,
Our banquet taught the Sophs who sought 'em
The Fres men were not where they thought 'em.
Yes, it did !
As green-caps we were all the cream,
We made the grandstand stam and scream,
And licked the Soph'more football team.
Yes, we did !
Our boys then won in basketball,
And made 11's colors fall
Before the 12's glad victory call.
Yes, they did l
Our baseball team knew how to play,
And there again we won the day,
" Five to twelve," we proudly say.
Yes, we did !
On field-day we were up to snuff
And grov ourselves both strong and tough,
The oph'mores went off in a hu -
Yes, they did !
Because we won the silver cup
From which the Sophs were wont to sup,
Now to our lips we hold it up,
As they did!
As Sophomores we posted procs,
Givin the Freshmen some hard knocks,
Whicg made them wildly tear their locks.
Yes, we did l
An Erie car we chartered duly,
And to our banquet steamed off coolly.
Oh Freshman class, we sure did fool ye,
Yes, we did !
And when spring baseball calls for men
And field-day comes around, why then
We'll do the Freshies up again,
Yes, we will !

And her day dreams Elluite realistic.

A calm little maid, and demure,
Yet with gems of thought, rich and pure,
Through patience and hope most enduring
Melva's record grows most alluring,
Yet her ideal is a domicile,
Nor would she long ponder its style.
An artist, for a model mother,
Need look for no other,
Happy object of the Dutch preacher's wile!

Billy Whitford is our artist,
And he's faithful to his task,
He is at it in the morning
And he's at it to the last.
You may take him in the classroom,
Or in chapel during prayer,
He has always got his sketchjbook,
And he's drawing, drawing there. N
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
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. D

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-
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
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-
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
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.
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
SEC. 1. Every student in the college shall be expected to
lend his aid in maintaining this constitution.
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.
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

An Alfriedian Picnic

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.

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
"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-

and collected as she usually was, seemed for a moment con-

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-

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
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
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.

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
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 ?
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 . "

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
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

Y. M. C. A.
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.

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."
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-
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

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
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.

LAN Alpine Boarding Club, organized in 1899, 'was
founded on the principle of equality to all and favorit-
ism to none. 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-

Under the Constitution of the Honor System adopted by

Senate constitute the Honor Committee for investigating and

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.

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
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
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
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.

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
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
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.
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
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
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.

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 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
lnterclass Track Meet

HE First Annual
The interscholastic Field and Track Meet
Inter-Scholastic Field and Tract Meet, conducted under the auspices of the Athletic Association of Alfred
held on the Alfred field, Thursday afternoon, May 20, 1909. 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
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.

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
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 University Club
HE University Club was founded September 16, 1903.
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
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 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
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
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.
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
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

State School of Clay-Working and Ceramics
HE New York State College of Clay-Working and Cer-
amics was founded in 1900 with Professor Charles F.
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
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
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-
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.
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.

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
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

There was once a fresh young freshman who thought he was
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
Then thgy ducked him in the fountain, till he was cold and
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
Thege divas once a gay young Brick girl who was noisy in the
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
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
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
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-
So don't throw spearmint on the walks, or cigarette stumps on
Don't leave candy bags or papers for the wind to blow around,
But vghen walking round the campus take heed what you'r
Or the janitor will get you if you
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
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-
"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
"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
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
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
"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.

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
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,
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
" 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
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-
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
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.
