- ITH this volume of the Kamzkfzrkzz
a departure from custom has been
S made. Owing to the extension of
FHM- the University, the problem of the
relations between the various departments has
arisen and is not yet solved. It is believed,
however, that some means should be taken
to create a mutual feeling of respect without
detracting from individual independence. To
this end it has been deemed Wise to unite the
departments in the publication of the year
book, in the belief that this will help to foster
the true University spirit. J .ai .al .af
Witli this word of explanation the Editors
present the book to the students, with the
hope that all will find something to enjoy
and that in the future these pages will bring
back pleasant memories of the busy, happy

EAR old Prexy! Somehow he has always impressed me as something more than flesh and
blood,-a sort of disembodied, benelieent spirit, flittinghither and thither. Today he's inAlfred
"ethicising" freshmen, tomorrow in New York gathering dueats for the Betterment Fund,
and the next day out west lecturing on Agriculture-forever working in the interest of his little
college in the hills. God bless you, Prexy! May your eeaseless activity be rewarded in the growth
of a new Alfred, richer in facilities and broader in purpose than the old.

HIC Grand Old Man of Alfred! Dean Kenyon, the embodiment of the square deal! He eom-
bines the greatest personal kindness with the strictest oH'ic'ial reetitude, and governs his "boys
and girls" so taelfully that all love and revere him. Anyone would know that he was :L
mathematician by his exactness. He never begins a class a moment too early or close it a moment
too late. He is altogether such a pattern of regularity as you read about in story books but seldom
see in actual life. As a teacher he is gentle, carefully inductive and noted for his kind considera-
tion of his students.

N the hurry and worry of modern life there is one man who has time to cultivate ideals, and
that man is Dean Main. Dean Main is a big man in body, mind and heart. You instinctively
feel that he is above the trivial and the conventional, and it is even so. From his cloistered
study and quiet meditation he brings to us a philosophy that is immediately applicable to the con-
cerns of everyday life, and a faith that looks with assurance beyond the present and beholds afar off
the consummation of human yearnings for the Infinite.

RT, literature and religion with smne men are things to be admired and forgotten, with Professor
Whitford they are things to be lived. He does not find a high degree of scholarship incom-
patible with participation to the full in the life of the local community. Professor, we think
you've bit the point. The great justification for higher education is its applicability to everyday
conditions. Is it not a sufficient tribute to say in the same breath that a man is a learned professor
and a good neighbor, a Christian minister and a successful man of business?

N a year u hen the prohlem of the proper relation of college studies to outside activities is a center
of attention, we may well look to Professor Binns as one who has reached a satisfactory solution.
Few men antong' the facility ltave more varied interests, yet he has a wholesome ahhorrence for
fads, and tenipers his zeal for all enterprises hy the conservatism of solid common sense. An acknow-
ledged specialist in his own line, he holds up to his students the twofold ideal of successful professional
training and a broad general sympathy for all departments of human endeavor.

HAT is Professor Titsworth's theory of education? For answer, see the light that gleams
from his oflice window in the "wee small hours" of the night. An enemy tothe sentimen-
tal, so-called education, which consists in "enthusing" over things at a distance rather
than the actual mastery and application of content, he exemplifies hest in his own life the principles
he champions. And does he achieve results? Well, just ask those who have explored the mysteries
of German syntax under his direction. Ask those who have listened to his inspiring chapel speeches,
where every sentence is a fund of condensed meaning. Rah, for Herr Titsworth.

TRUE interpreter of literature, one who never fails to pierce through the verlmiage of
expression and reveal the warm, sentient, lmman life that throbs beneath. Aside from his
classroom duties, the quality which distinguishes Professor Wilcox is his versatility. He
has never quite outgrown his undergraduate days and can he as much ofa hoy as ever when occasion
requires. A brilliant scholar, an enthusiastic comrade, and an inspiring instructor,-few professors
have a more secure place in the hearts of Alfred students.

VERY college student acknowledges that one of the most refining influences of college life
is the quiet period at chapel when he sits under the spell of Professor Annas' music and is
lifted out of himself into the realm of the ideal. Music as the embodiment ofthe inarticulate
cries of the human heart, "the voice ofall the voiceless things of earth," demands for its proper
interpretation a sympathy that is as broad as humanity itself. That Professor Annas possesses this
quality as do few other men is ohvious to all who have listened to his skilled rendition of the works
of the masters of inusic.

L L F making books there is no end," but a library is not a mere collection of books nor a
librarian one who indiseriminately passes out reading matter. To carefully select a few
books worth while from the mountains of material published, and to see that the right
book and the right student come together, requires taet and insight. Alfred students are frankly
pleased at the way Professor Clawson performs his duties as librarian. He believes that the college
library has a function second to none in the edncative process and has instituted lnany reforms tending
to greater eflieieney in service.

CL ICAR OLD ,llMlVlY"-so goes the song. Fact is, he isn't old. The phrase evidently
means that the affectionate regard of all students for the proprietor of the Steinheim is
a lixed and ever-recurring phenomenon. When freslnnen come to college, a trifle
timid and quite overcome by the opening formalities, they find their first friend among the faculty in
the kind hearted, jolly professor of biology. And as the years go on they learn to .admire him more
and more for the seriousness of purpose and broadness of intellect that lie beneath a genial exterior.

HE Practical Spirit walked the streets of Alfred, sorely disheartened. On every hand there
were huildings and equipments designed to introduce ideals, morals, and such intangihle
things into the minds of students. The Practical Spirit sighed and looked disgusted. But
just then he saw Professor Crandall. Under his arm the professor carried a saw, in his hand a
hammer, and his pocket hulged with things too numerous to mention. His inventive mind was full
of practical ideas that were sure of realization. The Practical Spirit hegan to smile, Professor
Crandall hegan to work. The one has continued smiling and the other working ever since.

HEN it became necessary to select a new instructor for the College of Ceramics last fall,
Mr. Cummings was chosen, first, because he was a "good fellow" in his Alma Mater,
having snapped up all the literary honors and social distinctions in sight during his sojourn
there, secondly, because his hair made such a beautiful harmony with the bricks in the Ceramic
building. During his first year at Alfred he has become recognized as an expert in scientific clay
work, a hard worker, and a sympathetic instructor.

the retirement of Mrs. Stanton. During the many years which she
has spent in the Alfred University library, she has proved herself to
be most efficient in her work as well as being a source of inspiration
natural taste for art and literature, through which she has become acquainted with
the world's great masterpieces.
qi In early life she became the wife of Dr. Volney Van R
Philadelphia, making her home there until her husband's death, only a few years after
their marriage. In l885, after several years of teaching in New jersey, Mrs. Stanton
came to Alfred to do editorial work a part of the time, also acting as preceptress in
the University. In 1891 she took up the work in the library, first to act as a supply,
but two years later to take charge there. The subsequent years Mrs. Stanton has made
profitable for the University, as well as for herself, for the University, because she, in her
interest in the growth of the library unselfishly continued to give her time and energy
I0 the work here when she might have had triple the salary in another place, and for

'il No one can become acquainted with Mrs. Stanton without recognizing the broad
Culture and rehnement which go with a wide knowledge ofthe finer arts. The trustees,
the faculty and the students of Alfred University cannot say too much in appreciation
of her services.
EIJWARD INIULFORD TONILINSON
The ancient adage that "manners mayketh man" was never better ex-
emplified than in the life of Edward M. Tomlinson, who for thirty-one years
filled the chair of Greek Language and Literature at Alfred University.
The grace of classic lore seemed to touch his life and he moved in the
circle of the college as one who radiated the influence of pure and perfect
manhood. As each opening year brought bands of eager students with
minds plastic and ready for shaping, the personality of the senior professor
made itself felt but with so gentle a stroke as to be almost a caress, and
before long the newcomers, even if not students of Greek, would join
heartily in the praises of "dear old Tommy." His place may be filled
but his memory lingers as a fragrant aroma in the atmosphere of the college.
MAY STONE IIA X'DOCIi
May Stone Haydock was the daughter of Robert and Emma Ball Haydock.
After completing her high school course, she studied in the School of
Design for Women at Philadelphia. After this she spent one year each
in the Academy of Fine Arts and the School of Industrial Arts. She con-
tinued her study abroad in the Central School of Arts and Crafts at London
and also with Charles Cottet in Paris. In 1907 Miss Haydock accepted
the position of instructor in Art in the New York State School of Clay-
Working and Ceramics, a position she held for the next three years, her
death occuring on September 16th, 1910.
Miss Haydock brought to her associates not only the ability and culture
acquired by much study and training, but also a character of rare beauty.
She was esteemed by the faculty, beloved by the students and admired by
all. Her death, after a severe illness, was a shock and grief to the entire
community for they felt not only the loss of a talented artist but of a refined
and noble personality.

INCE the organization of the Student Senate in 1906, to look after
the government of the student-body, there has developed a spirit
of self-control among the students that has far surpassed anticipation.
The feeling is steadily growing that increased individuality and
personality are the outcome of four years of college life when one
is given the chance to test himself and to choose for himself those
things which he deems for his best interest toward culture, and to
thrust aside evil tendencies and temptations.
ill No greater proof of this elevation of conditions is seen than in the adoption of the
Honor System. While the Senate has charge of cases of violation of this System's
rules, the students themselves are responsible for its successful working. It is a step
toward ideal conditions when parents and guardians can feel that by sending their boys
and girls to our college they will ll0t be obliged to depend upon the faculty for their
development so much as upon the student-body, whose unflinching spirit and sense of
honor will permeate the life of the freshman, inspiring in him a desire for true culture
and at the same time giving rise to an abhorrence for meanness. This is the attitude
which the Senate wishes to take and which the students should take and are taking.
Ill In some measure it is the students who are responsible for the downfall of individuals.
They should make newcomers feel the value of personal honor and impress on their
minds that the mere getting through college with a degree amounts to nothing unless
self-control and moderation accompany it. Freshmen sometimes think that the Student
Senate is antagonistic toward them, because, coming as they do from high schools
where law and order are enforced by the teachers, they feel that they are being imposed
upon when campus rules, are made for their benefit by students. Thus, rules are
means of testing the new student's stamina and they give an insight to the faculty as
well as to the students of what is needed for those who are found wanting- In this
way, the Senate is a link between the faculty and the student-body.
ill There has been much criticism regarding the "Constitution and By-laws" of the
campus, and amendments and changes have been enacted which have been more
adequate. Proposals have been presented for consideration to make our campus
rules like those of certain other colleges. While this is all right in its place, it tends to
take away the originality of our own ideas and destroy our independence. We can
take more pride in putting up a copy for others than in copying after them. Then,
rules formulated within our own walls naturally mean more to us. Many students in
times past have looked upon the rules as something of a farce, never failing to violate
them whenever possible. Upperclassmen have been known to give the freshmen this
idea. This, if anything, is what kills college spirit. We feel justified in saying that
this indifference is giving place to a realization of the value of rules both for college
spirit and for individual discipline. The strength of the college lies in units' and for
this unity the Student Senate stands. lt is not the interests of an individual, a clique,
or a class that the Senate has at heart, but of the student body as a whole. The faculty,
by making the curriculum more elective, has given an opportunity for individual
choice. l.et us work to uplift the spirit of our college, not from the choice of at
few only but of the students in general.

On October fifth we enjoyed a most bountiful and undisturbed banquet at the
Hornell Page House, and only five days later we took another most pleasant trip to
Arkport. Among the social events of the year were the Freshman Corn Roast in
Lover s Lane, the Peanut Party at the President's, the Snowball Party at the home of
Professor Wilcox, parties given by class President Crumb and Allan Williams, and the
UID I0 Odell's sugarbush. Worthy of note also is the Flagrush, which of course we
won, as well as the Track Meet in May, when we gained the new Loving Cup. We
wound up our first year with that ghostly procession on the midnight of June tenth,
when we burned our freshman caps and themes thus signifying that our childhood days

Professor and Mrs. Wilcox, and also with Mr. and Mrs. Crumb, will be long
remembered by us. Then, too, there are the Sophomore-Freshman games of our
second year, that ever-to-be-remembered trip to our Sophomore Banquet at Canisteo,
our Junior sleighride, and our third-year banquet at the Parish House, when we
Presented the result of the year's hard labor, our 'Kanakadea," to Professor Wilcox,
and to the college in general.
This year our responsibilities as seniors have weighed heavily upon us in the interests
of the college at large. However, we have found time for our roast in Lover's Lane,
fa most dignified affairj, our Progressive Hallow'een Party, and our Senior Dinner.
Founders Day was to us the day in our history when we publicly assumed our senior
responsibilities and symbolized the event by donning our caps and gowns. To us it
was a most serious occasion, for it also foretold our departure from friends and Alma
Mater, and our advent into the wide, wide world, where we shall soon have occasion
10 Pfpve, by the way in which we meet our world problems, whether we have been
Working by Our motto, "Erst wagen, dann wagen."

Oh, Gertrude does a lot of work
And does it very well,
None of her lessons does she shirk,
And likes the facts to tell.
Her twists and smiles reveal to us
Our answers are N. G.
But in l"ame's Hall our Gertrude plus
Her-man we trust to see.
'Tis of love I sing, the old, old song,
Of ogling, oseulating, euddlingnnd
"Herniie" for "Genie" is awfully strong,
The moonlit old Steinheim eehoes of
All jiunnie's hugs are getting the hahit,
The erieket is leery o'er sweet Katy-did,
The snake is quite mooney and likewise the
One and all they now greet us with "Oh,
The artist may rave o'er the hluehell,
Of zephyrs the poet may sing,
llut this rare hird in a gym suit
Apes well a hug worked hy a spring.
VVith rippling musele he sidles about,
His lightning-like moves fan il hreeze.
The erowd hefore long "pipe the phenom",
As one man they shout, "Hook the eheese"
Oft in the stilly night, when others snore so
Pa "Benny" treads the taek-strewn hall and
curses taint the air.
Ring out, ring out, ye wedding hells, oh,
married life is elever,
But when you trip the wedding march, kiss
sleep goodhy forever.
Our l.ena's quite a caution
VVith eyes so hig and hrown
That when she takes a notion
She makes us all how down.
Doesn't go in for athleties
Or anything that's rough,
But studies up aesthetics,
Perhaps puts on a puff.

Staid and studious Katharine judge,
She doesn't even Care for fudge
But is always just so properg
Vllould not give a dingy copper
For the other fellow's grudge.
Our Iva is a solemn maid
And passing slender too,
VVho really l1asn't found it paid
To pad as others do.
One Rosy is her chiefest Care,
With her to town she goes,
NVQ: wonder how the lnaiden dare
To drive the lively Rose.
Now Ferrin is a flirter,
Ask john if 'tis not so,
For sure around her dwelling
The fellows eonte and go.
She wears a set of foxy furs,
All of a bluish color,
They reached her in a Clll'lSIIIlZlS box
Sent by a certain feller.
Coon is really not so dark
As her name would nlake her out,
For though her hair is passing bla1.'lL
Her eyes are Saxon blue, no doubt.
Now this maiden doth believe,
Though she does not tell us why,
In western Forest to receive
Frotn the Fates her fortune's die.

And everywhere that Paulie went those
hooks were sure to go,
They followed him to st-hool one day, in

He never left those hooks at home, he
wouldn't if he eould.
One day he left this little world, he took

He walked all day in sooty halls until his

MONG the students who gathered at Alfred in September, nineteen-
eight, there were forty distinguishable from the rest by that badge of
inexperience and ambition, the green cap. For these, the events of
the first few weeks of college were particularly novel and exciting.
With the aid of the Juniors, the class of 19l2 was soon organized,
adopting brown and orange for the colors, and the motto, Hlivery
man is the architect of his own fortune." The next step was to
Hget acquainted" and a pleasant means was hit upon, in the form of a "hot tamale
roastf, Then the proc" season was upon us, and no sooner was this over, than the
subject of banquets demanded all our attention.
On the evening of the second Tuesday in October our enemies, if they had been
very, very alert might have seen us making our way from many and strange directions,
toward the home of Professor Binns, where the first class banquet was to be held.
How stealthily we moved about the house, and how our hearts thumped with excite-
ment ztnd anxietyl And when it was all over, how the hills rang with our victorious
ln the Freshman-Sophomore football game, the courage and brawii of her boys won
for nineteen-twelve another victory, which was celebrated by a good time" at the
home of one of the members.
One of the pleasantest events of the year occured when the class was entertained
by President and Mrs. Davis, and again when we spent a delightful evening as guests
of nineteen-ten. At this time we received into our keeping the mascot which has
come to mean so much to the Uevenu classes.
ln the spring we were subjected to one more testffthe interclass field meet, and
here we added one more to our list of victories, winning the prized trophy cup. To
show 'their appreciation of the girls' efforts in this contest, the boys of the class gave
them a splendid banquet.
When we returned to college as Sophomores, we found our numbers considerably
diminished, but we tried not to let this reduce our enthusiasm. Our first victory was
scored in Hprocu posting, the next in our banquets" and such a banquet as we hadl
On the eleventh of'October, we boarded a special Erie train, and puffed calmly away
to Canaseraga. Here, at the Glenmore House, we feasted long and gailyg listened
to toasts both witty and inspiring, and then once more raised our lusty voices in a
triumphant yell for nineteen-twelve. Other pleasant events of this year were a class
sleigh ride, an evening with the Seniors as our guests, and a chahing-dish party
following the Inter-class meet.
And now we are Juniors, Jolly Juniors, to be sure-for the social side of our life
has not been neglectedfbut there is a commendable tendency to emphasize work
rather than play. Cnc striking evidence of this was seen in the presentation of the
"Merry Cobblerf' which was put on for the benefit of the Kanakadea. As upper-
classmen we are just a bit more serious, and realize that, if we are to make the most
of the remaining years, we must be more keenly alive to their opportunities and
responsibilities. We are indeed architects, and wish to build as wisely as we may.

lE46 E?Ti0Q HEN the nineteen-thirteeners registered in Alfred, they found to their

W jj great delight that theirs was the largest class that had ever entered the
99,5 college, but they were soon organized and became adjusted to their
surroundings.. Q . N ,
A Qozy. 'ah 'I he hrst excitement was in watching for the Sophomores procs. At
A J last, after the Sophs had waited as long as they possibly could, they
posted a few pieces of yellow paper from the upper-story windows on the sides ofthe col-
lege buildings. A few feeble but useless attempts were made to post some on the sidewalks.
The banquet season followed immediately and 1913 held its first real festivity on
October 7, 1909. lt was amusing to see the Sophomore girls and a few less ambitious
fellows follow the One-threes to within a couple of miles of the banquet hall, and then,
"jumping to conclusions," return to Alfred, leaving the banqueters to enjoy their
feast. The class of 1913 was more persevering. livery member watched so diligently
that 1912 had to cancel one banquet and in order to have one at all were finally obliged
to charter a special train.
In athletics, 1913 scored a distinct success. Owing to the timidity of the One-
twos, they decided not to play the football game to which 1913 had challenged them,
and in the game which was called baseball, 1913 scored over 1912, 21 to 4. The
greatest event of the year was the lnterclass Track Meet in the spring, when the class
of '13 won the coveted Loving Cup.
Along with the debating club which 1913 originated and successfully carried on they
enjoyed many class social functions. Cornroasts, a royal entertainment by President
Davis, a party where the girls entertained the fellows, a sleigh-ride planned by the fel-
lows in honor of the girls, and the splendid hospitality of 1911, the kindest of junior
classes, are samples of their good times.
They met as Freshmen for the last time on Wednesday evening of Commencement
week. They had passed their examinations, seven of them with honors, and were
worthy of the more distinguished name HSophomore". When the blaze which they had
kindled to celebrate the occasion was at its highest, they threw into it bits of a peculiar
green substance together with an effigy embodying the significance of their old name
Thirty-nine Sophomores returned to Alfred in the fall of 1910. l.ittle studying was
done by the Frosh during the first fortnight, for the Sophs kept them too busy watch-
ing for procs. At last the eventful morning came, and 1914 was permitted to gaze
upon, but not to touch, those long-looked-for documents, adorning the streets and the
side of the Grammar School.
The Freshmen now requested that the banquets be taken from the competitive basis,
but the Sophomores, fearing that the Freshman class spirit would die from lack of ex-
ercise, refused to comply with their wishes. After the Freshman lunch in a nearby
farmhouse came the Sophomore banquet which was indeed a success. The class left
town in the afternoon and at sunset took a train fora neighboring village, the Freshmen
offering no opposition. To be sure, some of them boarded the train and rode under
the seats for a few miles, but receiving no invitation to the banquet, they dropped off
along the way. At nine o'clock thirty-eight Sophomores and nine invited guests sat
down to one of the most sumptuous banquets ever served on a similar occasion, while
the Freshmen were eating their bread and milk miles away.
Again in the fall of 1910 the flag rush and the football game were granted victories
to 1913 because 1914 was afraid to tackle them. With these past successes and the
present class spirit it is not hard to foretell the future of the Class of 1913.

FRESH MAN EFFORT
OW Prexy smiled and stroked his beard as he viewed the Freshman
classl To be sure, it'was a motley crowdgits verdancy, to say the least,
was a thing to be wondered at, and there was lacking that spirit of
good fellowship which comes with acquaintance. But Prexy had too
much experience and insight not to recognize the spirit which, though
scarcely awakened was soon to make itself felt in the college. The
juniors also perceived this spirit and strove to stimulate the feeling of
good fellowship by suggesting a social gathering and class organization. By these
means and with the help of the little Green Caps the class began to unite and become
First, the chesty Sophs, seeing that the verdant Frosh were very much inferior in
physical power, decided to humiliate the Little Ones by chaining them and then posting
procs in their very faces. This plan, however, was readily foiled by the dexterity of
the Freshmen. The haughty Sophs soon woke up to the fact that instead of easily
subduing the .Frosh they would have to work hard to ward off defeat, and at the end
of the contest they had barely won the victory which they had thought would be so
Swiftly followed the banquet season with both classes on the alert. The Sophs had
recognized that they had a live class against them and the Frosh had been welded
together in the heat of the preceding contest. Impelled by the rising spirit of self-
confidence and by the desire to beat the Sophomores in having the banquet, the frisky
.Freshmen went in squads to one of the mansions in the surrounding country. Here
they successfully held their banquet without the least disturbance from the sleepy Sophs
who were suddenly awakened from their peaceful slumbers by the conquering cry:---
"Rick rack rick roar, A. U. One-Four, -
We have had our banquet. Now you can have yours."
After the busy time of these contests the Freshmen settled down to the first year of
their college life. The lyceums welcomed them cordially into the college by giving them
receptions in particular and a good time in general. The freshman girls showed their
originality by entertainingthe boys most royally with a Progressive Party on Hallowe'en.
Soon there faded from the campus the visible verdancy of the Freshmen, their little
Green Caps, the bane of their existence and the object of the Sophomores' ridicule.
These will reappear with the birds and plants in the spring but the Frosh thoroughly
enjoy the winter's respite. The Class did not pass the time in idleness, however, but
determined not to hide its candle under a bushel and soon organized the Freshman
Debating Society and debates with other schools were arranged, to show the outside
world that there were enough Freshmen in old Alfred to be called a class.
The juniors held their annual reception to the Freshmen in Firemen's Hall and
there, amidst festivities and rejoicing, they handed downto the Class of l9l4 The Iron
Knight of the liven Numbers. His tale was told and the Freshmen solemnly swore to
protect him with their life-blood. '
Last but not least was the long awaited reception to the Freshman Class by President
Davis. This came in the shape of a UField Day" and the Frosh were entertained as
only Prexy and his worthy wife know how. .
Soon the winter's rest will be over and the other contests must be fought. Let us
hope that whatever the outcome may be the Alfred spirit will rule.

PANSY'S M ESSAGE
Dear Next Year's Girls,
We are all looking forward to your being with us next year and there will be so
many new things to take your attention that we wanted you to know before you came
about our Lyceum, one of the best phases of our college life.
We Alfriedians are just a bunch of girls trying to stimulate interest in literary fields.
The society was founded in i846 when the motto "Excelsior" was chosen, and since
that time, thro many college generations, we have striven to uphold its signincance.
We meet every Saturday night in cosy club rooms in the girl's dormitory, and have
programs which have been carefully prepared during the week. We usually open our
program with devotions, then we have some music and we've some splendid musicians
among the girls, too, both pianists and vocalists. We have a line piano and this
Lyceum boasts a quartette. The Lmfvc: :gf Mr XX Cmtzmv, our Lyceum paper, is
one of the best numbers, for it has current topic reviews, jokes 01' grinds on the girls,
and original stories. One of the older girls of the club acts as critic and by her
suggestions we see our need of improvement. Lots of times we sing college songs,
but we usually wind up with our song to HIrene," the ideal Alfriedian girl. You
know ideals are a great part of a girl's life, and Ulreneu stands for the perfect type
of womanhood. She inspires us to attain her standard of all that is good and noble,
besides affording the bond of fellowship among us girls.
Oh, I forgot, I was telling you about our programs. Well, visitors are always
welcome at our sessions, only afterward we have a private business session. This
year we haven't always observed the usual order of program, but have had original
stunts instead. We needed a new piano stool, so we divided the girls into four
sections, each one having a distinct program. The group having the best was exempt
from further duties, but the other three groups had to provide the piano stool. We
had some mighty clever entertainments. The first was a "nigger-gals" minstrel, the
next a burlesque on "The Merchant of Venice," the third a series of tableaux on
the college girl's life, and the last was a clever production of "I-Iiawathaf' Of course
Hiawatha carried off the honors, but the rest were awfully good.
We often have little spreads among ourselves and several times during the year join
forces with the Allies, our brother lyceum. Those are the times we never forget.
Sometime after the mid-year exams we have a public session in the Assembly Room.
This program is especially carefully planned and, naturally, the best material is chosen.
And so you can see from what I have told you that our lyceum life is a continued
round of activity from the initiation to the Commencement Play. Each June, a
Shakespearian Play is produced and this year it is our turn to give it. l do hope you
can come to Alfred and see that our interpretations of Shapespeare prove our scholarly
development and dramatic ability.
Really, I must not boast too much, but as you hope some day to don the cap and gown,
so you must cherish the hope of putting on the purple and white robe of the Alfriedian.

HIS, our motto, is one that we may well keep in mind all our lives.
It embodies the spirit of concentration in thought and in study, and
of persistence in following out a conviction. Perseverance is one of
the most important requisites for success in life. It is one of the
things We expect to get out of our Lyceum.
We have come to realize this year more than ever that perseverance
is needed in lyceum work. Other activities have of late become more
numerous and more insistent, and the Lyceum itself has been going through a period
of adjustment to new needs and new conditions. For this reason, those who have the
interests of the Lyceum at heart feel that the present period is a critical one in its
existence. But the renewed interest manifest this year and the new members who
have joined us and are taking an enthusiastic part in the work, strengthen our conviction
that the Lyceum supplies a definite need in our college training.
The purpose of our Lyceum is to better its members in such a way that they, will
exert a force among men, and not only be fit for the varied duties of life, but broaden
and enrich the lives of their fellow men., The practice gained in lyceum work trains
a man's character, develops his literary ability, inculcates business principles and
parliamentary methods, and thus prepares him for a higher and broader field of
endeavor when he plunges into the Uhurly-burly" of the business world.
Declamation, oratory, and impromptu speaking are invaluable to the professional
man of today whether he be lawyer, merchant, minister, teacher, or statesman. The
power to think on one's feet, which is acquired in the Lyceum, is an aid in social and
business life. The various social functions during the year give a refinement and ease
of bearing which can only be appreciated in after years. Moreover, the power of
public speech enables a man to make himself felt among his fellows and develops in
him a confidence that is necessary for success.
As previously noted, this Lyceum started the year with good, hard work in enrolling
new members. The results of our labors are evident not only in additional members,
but in a greater degree of enthusiasm. We now have a good bunch of fellows, inter-
ested inthe welfare of the Lyceum, who are always ready to do their part and do it
The Alleganians are trying this year to have variety in their programs, and, at the
same time, to make them interesting along these various lines: One week we have a
program entirely literary, the next, a debate on some important question. At intervals
of a few weeks parliamentary practice takes up our attention. Social gatherings are
enjoyed at stated times. We started off the year with a sumptuous feed for the Fresh-
men, in order to impress them favorably with our Lyceum. Later on, we joined with
the Alfriedians in entertaining the incoming class at the "Brick" Immediately after
the holiday vacation, a joint session was held and an excellent program presented.
ln these various ways, the Alleghanians have been proving the real worth of their

Y. M. C. A.
IN other college societies the current year has been one of reaction
for the Y. M. C. A. We have felt the increasing sentiment opposed
to strenuous student activities and have consequently suffered. Several
strong Y. M. C. A. workers graduated with the class of 1910 and the
offices and chairmanships have in some instances been Elled by novices.
has been accomplished. The interesting Sunday evening services are
worthy of any association. These meetings have been addressed by faculty members
or by delegates on the various phases of association work. At the beginning of the
year Dean Main gave a series of lectures on the Ethical Teachings of the Old
Testament. Delegates were sent to the Student Volunteer Conference at Schenectady.
The room in Burdick Hall has always been open to the students. Many of the
Current magazines have been kept on the reading table. Other organizations have
been welcomed to the room for their meetings and its central location has caused it to
be used much for committee meetings.
This year for the first time the association has attempted an information bureau for
the new students. lt is intended that this work will broaden so that it will meet the
needs of the increasing attendance from year to year. The committee in charge will
attempt to locate rooms for all new students and will find employment for those desir-
ing it. This work must be largely co-operative with the townspeople.
With the opening of the Agricultural School, the problem of reaching these new
students was faced. After some time given to personal investigation of the conditions
among the students, it was decided that the most effective move would be to organize
a separate association. Accordingly this was done and to all appearances the new
branch is prospering.
So at the present time, each Sunday evening two bands of young men meet in their
respective quarters to worship God. It is believed that the Christian Associations
express better than any other organ the religious life of the students. Through the
associations the attempt is made to inspire in the student mind the thought that truth is
supreme and that no life is complete unless it is trying to express that truth. Though
other activities may call for attention yet we believe that this religious spirit will
continually seek expression and we wish to make the Y. M. C. A. the medium.

Ps of woman is the special task of the young woman's branch of this organization.
The Association is so broad in its work, so free from sect and class distinctions,
L as to include in its various departments numberlcss problems of the complex life
- of today. There are the City Associations, the Foreign Associations, the School
Associations and the College Associations, each with its own particular field of

student problem to solve. During college days, we are seeking the reason for all

themselves before our mind's eye, and anything for which we cannot find a law excites our doubt.
This is especially a crisis in our religious views because, while the law of the relation of man to God
is so clear as to be easily seen into by the simple and childlike, it is so deep, as to be far more
difficult to fathom than any other law, when one takes reason alone as the test. Not much time is
usually given to religious thinking. Thus it is that many-a student comes to look upon Christianity
as only an innocent delusion at best, and not worth the serious attention of a trained intellect.
Now the Christian Association invites a deeper look into the nature of this force, which has been
the dominant factor in civiliziug the world. It seeks to present in a sane and sensible way the Truth
of the religion of jesus Christ as inclusive of all truths, and to bring mankind to at knowledge of the
practical power in the right relation of man to God.
Some of the means employed by the Alfred Y. W. C. A. in the endeavor to attain these aims are
as follows: An open prayer meeting is held every Sunday evening in our room at the Brick. Here,
lyceum faction, class spirit, and clique distinctions, however slight these barriers may be, are laid
aside, and the girls talk together of the deeper things of life. Each week one of the members leads,
presenting some truth from the Scriptures, which forms tl nucleus of thought, about which the
following general discussion centres. Occasional talks by men and women of experience form an
interesting and profitable variation in these meetings.
Miss Corbett, the present student secretary of the Northeastern division of the Y. W. C. A. visits
us each year, and by her enthusiam, practncal words of wisdom, and kindly sympathy gives us a
broader knowledge of the worth of our Association, and inspires ns individually to higher thinking
and better living.
The business affairs ofthe Y. W. C. A. are guided by a number of committees among which all
the members are divided. Each committee meets once a month, transacts business ofa special nature,
and discusses some of the serious questions of everyday life.
The central life of the Association is in the cabinet, which is composed of the heads of committees
with the secretary and president. The weekly cabinet meeting is a conference together concerning
everything relating to Y. W. C. A. work. Here are discussed our ideals, our responsibility in
maintaining them, and our plans for doing it.
A Mission Study class and three Bible Study classes have been organized this year. In Mission
Study the conditions and needs of the people in one country are considered together with the past and
present missionary work there. The Bible Study classes take up the Bible as the text-book of
Christianity, trying to learn its truths first hand. The object is to know the Bible better, not so
much in its facts as in its real meaning.
All of these meetings and classes are valuable. In the free exchange of thought, ideas are cleared,
and real thinking in basic principles is inspired. A bond of fellowship is formed between the girls, as
they earnestly seek to know what is woman's share in the work of making the world better. And
through it all the Christ religion comes to mean a genuine force for good, which can make each life
richer and more helpful.

HERE has been a great deal of discussion as to the proper place to give to
debating in college life. Whether or not the greatest power can be developed
by inter-collegiate, inter-lyceum or inter-class debates has not been decided.
That Alfred has plenty of debating material is shown in the lyceum debates weekly.
The problem is how can this material be developed best.
Inter-collegiate debating has not always proved successful, particularly from the
financial standpoint. Athletics are practically accepted as college necessities and
consequently students are willing to pay elaborate fees for their maintenance. Debating,
however, does not enjoy the same prominence and the door fees will seldom begin to
touch the actual expenses.
For the present year at least, this seems to have put the ban on inter-collegiate
debates. If sufiicient interest is retained another year perhaps such debating will be
possible. In the meantime increased and more general debating, both of a formal and
an informal nature, should be carried on in the lyceums.

ATE last fall a society was organized in the Freshman class for the purpose of
obtaining practice in public speaking. Oflicers were duly elected and a con-
stitution and by-laws adopted. The society meets every Wednesday evening
in the Alleghanian Lyceum room. There has been much interest manifested
by the Freshmen in this society as is shown by the large number who attend the
meetings. There have been several debates on topics of current interest and much
pleasure as well as benefit has come from them: The Freshmen believe that the
society is good enough to keep and plan to continue it through their college course.
A debate has been arranged with Houghton Seminary for the latter part of March.
A team, composed of Austin, Barker, O'Connor and Persons, has been chosen and
is working hard for a victory.

DER DEUTCHE VEREIN
HIC work of "Der Deutsche Verein" is an attempt to bring the students
into a closer contact with the political, historical and social side of life
among the Germans. In order to know or understand a people, it
is necessary to learn about the conditions under which they live, their
customs and manners, and to have an interest in their everyday life.
Americans are apt to consider the Germans a rather easy-going,
uncultured class of people but when they know them better they soon
discover that the Germans, while different in many respects from Americans, are an
educated and highly respected people.
At the first meeting of the club the current topics were given and the remainder of
the evening was taken up by a stereopticon lecture, "A Trip Through Germany," by
Professor Titsworth. ln the following meetings such topics as "The Black Forest,"
"German Life,', "German Mythology," German Politics in the Nineteenth Century,"
"Germans in America," and "Romantic Germany" were presented by the students.
After the papers were read and discussed, the evenings were spent in singing German
songs and telling stories in German.
The second semester's work as planned is of a somewhat different character. The
club has subscribed for a German magazine, "Die Woche," in which are German
stories, current topics and political articles. In the magazine the language is more of
the type used in the everyday life of the Germans than that which is contained in text
books. And so by reading these the student comes in closer Contact with the real
language of the Germans, their idioms and their peculiarities. Besides this work a
few plays will be read, the current topics and German music will continue and more
conversation will be required.
The club work is not only very interesting but also very helpful to the student of
HIC Seminar in Drama is an advanced course for those interested in the
study of the drama. It is conducted jointly by Professors Hart,
Titsworth and Wilcox and meets semi-monthly.
The workthis year has been on the tragedy. Representative dramas
have been chosen from the various literatures and read in class. In
connection with the reading of these plays Elizabeth Woodbridge s
textbook, HThe Drama, Its Law and Techniquen has been studied.
Each student has written a criticism of some drama, chosen by himself for special study,
and has read this before the seminar.

The purpose of the course is to give the students a basis for appreciation of what is
good in dramatic art by a comparison of the various dramas with each other and
with the ideal.
1'HE BRICK GIRLS
Miss Rogers is our one dear friend,
Who'll stand by us right to the end,
Her love rings true whatever we do,
May the graces her pathway attend.
Our senior Fanny, so kind and true,
Without whom Brick girls could not do,
Our hearts she has won with her frolic and fun,
But at times she is dignified too.
Gertrude Hughes is a junior so meekC?D
Who on Friday night of each week
Takes her book to the hall to watch until all
Of the boys have gone out of the Brick.
There once was a book-worm called Kate,
Who. frivolous things all did hate,
Intellectual of mind and forever a grind,
She studies both early and late,
Now "Ab" has a nose retroussay
And a laugh that's infectious and gay,
But we hear that Ball doesn't mind it at all
If only with her he can stay.
Clarissa we cannot forget
For she is the faculty's pet,
"Though a grindC?D she may be, thatfs nothing to me,
Says Hop, "She's the best l've seen yet."
Mary Foults has a bright cheery smile
But chatters most all of the while,
Though the Brick girls all talk until they are blue
She has everyone there beat a mile.
And here's to our Marjorie too,
Who is often inclined to be blue,
Who in Katharine's wake her position does take
No matter what We say or do.
ln longing Alberta spends her time,
So great I can scarce put in rhyme,
For Rodfs far away, how can she be gay,
Oh wasn't last year just sublime!
Our Rose is a sophomore gay,
Who possesses a most winsome way,
But her reputation is for imagination,
She'll outdo you whatever you say.
And there is a maiden named Payne
Who tries not to fuss, but in vain,
But when she is cross we' re all at a loss
To bring cheer, for we' re met with disdain.
lJorothy's a sweet little peach
Who'll soon be changed to a Leach,
But it has been said that when they are wed
They'll go out in the wide world to preach.
Our Hirtatious Ruthie sighed, "How
Can 1 Hirt without making a row,
For it makes Larry mad and then l feel sad,
But l can't help but flirt--so there now!"
There is a young frosh named B. B.
Who ardently loved Anna C.
But she said, "Fm not ready to go with a steady,
l like someone at home who likes me."
Florence Lyman has views positive
And much time to practicing does give,
But when work is done she is just lots of fun,
So we're glad in the Brick she does live.
In Gym Lulu beats the girls all
Whether at vaulting or at basket ball,
But in the high kick all the girls in the Brick
Yield unto this giantess tall.
A coquettish young freshman named Sue
Made Leon feel pretty blue,
Said she, Nl like a score of fellows or more,
So l'll be just a sister to you."
'l'here,s a freshman Miss named Keim
Who would like to sleep all the time,
But 'tis impossible alas, for her eight o,clock class
Makes her rise at the six-thirty chime.
Helen Manley's favorite pastime
ls to ride out in a uliuick 'U9,"
Ult's heavenly," cried she, Prexy couldn't agree,
And says, "Such invitations decline."
There's none we like better than 'iSteve,"
Yet sheis a heartless oung flirt we believe
For she was pretty hard on poor love-lorn Gordon
When she told him he really ll1llSt leave.
Susan with her eyes of blue
Has a chafing dish quite new,
She never will budge 'till you mention fudge,
Then we know what she will do.
"Floss" would be just the mate for a man,
The most domestic of all the Brick clan,
just the sort of a wife for the rest of your life,
Now donjt you agree with us, D F
Helen is the girl to please,
She's even won the heart of Tease,
When Cottie's about all the rest get out,
And then he falls down on his knees.
Thanksgiving, Miss Grant went away
But just where she went she won't say,
But on returning did wear a huge solitaire -
They've settled june 10th, for the day.
Sarah is a maid sedate,
An American by fate,
But at last it's come to pass
That Ireland's Banks for her do wait.
Marjorie is an UAg" student bright
Whom everyone thinks is all Wright, .
When she goes to the mail she never will fail
To bring home a new man each night.
Daisy's a demure little lass
Who's a member of the Training Class.
When she's in the house she's as still as a mouse
Brick rules she never would trespass.

TH E FOOTLIGHT CLUB
HIS Footlight Club of Alfred University is an organization composed of the
best talent among the student body. lt was established in l90S to represent the
dramatic interests of the University, and since that time, has given two plays a
year. All the money received is used in producing the best plays procurable,
and enabling the club to pay royalties. Plays given by lyceums and other organizations
afford an opportunity of bringing dramatic talent before the public, so that membership
in the Footlight Club is also a reward of merit and hard work.

HE growing tendency -of colleges to regard athletics as an end in them-
imq 1 yi selves, and the feeling that a defeat by another .college team. is a dis-
bfcl as grace and spells 'absolute failure have not been without their influence
. on Alfred athletics. n I .
i While every loyal student has the keenest delightm cheering the home
team to victory and feels great disappointment when it is defeated,
there is more genuine satisfaction in seeing a team of strictly college
grade, and so entirely representative of the college, go down to defeat in a hard fought
contest, than in feeling that the team is winning and is composed of ability outside the
college. The fact that other colleges put in Hringersn should not make a standard for
us to follow. We can show nerve and true college spirit by playing what we have.
lt is principle that in reality puts us in the front ranks, not unmerited victory.
lt is a regrettable fact that old-time athletics have passed away. These were for all
students. The weak as well as the strong had a chance to develop physically, but now
only the strongest men are encouraged to participate. This is because of the extreme
athletic spirit of American colleges.
Athletics in Alfred this year have been handicapped by a conspicuous lack of funds,
so that basketball has been, dropped for this SCHSOI1. During the year a committee
was appointed to attend to the securing of a fund for a new gymnasium. Professor
W. D. Wilcox was appointed chairman of this committee. More than a thousand
dollars have been pledged by the upperclassmen in college, and with this impetus it is
probable that the alumni will aid with cash and pledges so that in a short time a gym-
nasium can be had suitable for our most successful game, basketball.
The method of selling season tickets to the student-body, which proved a success
last year, has been adopted this year. Students who purchase these tickets are made
members of the association and are therefore eligible to vote on questions which come
before the association, besides being admitted to all college games.
The baseball season with us is so short and the weather so uncertain that it is difficult
to get Ollt for practice early in the season and get in shape for games. However there
seems to be much enthusiasm for baseball this year and a large number of men have
expressed their intention to try out for the team. With the spirited support of the
student-body there is assurance of a successful season.
We need more men for football and track work. There is certainly much good
material in our midst but the spirit is lacking.
There has been some criticism, almost akin to "knocking,'l by certain players of
the manner in which the Directors run athletics. These certain ones fail to see the
problems with which the Directors have to cope. They expect a larger number of
games and better ones with less money to run them than the Directors allow. The
Directors have been attempting to secure games, through the managers, with colleges
and institutions of our own grade and to eliminate all others. ln some measure, they
have been successful and to continue this success it will be necessary to put out teams
possessing cafkige ability as well as winning ability. By college ability is meant right
spirit of playing and acting on the field, both in games and in practice, less "chewing,"
less individualism, and more unity in the team. No team can be successful where
there is strife internally and hard feeling, with no regard for the head of the team.
We must remember that we are working for a mlhjgf and we must appreciate the
problems before us and react accordingly.

AKEN as a whole and in view of tlle develop-
ment ofthe raw material placed in veterans'
positions at the beginning into a hard fighting,
well trained combination, the football season of
1910 can be regarded as a great success.
WVe started with a handful of old men and practically
no backfield, surely a discouraging proposition for Coach
Cottrell, but under his excellent training and entlmsed
by his determined spirit, we rose stronger than ever after
each defeat until an entirely different aggregation fought
their way to victory against a college team that had held
Syracuse to a no-score game and had made a very
respectable showing against Penn State and Cornell.
The development may be traced by the scores of the
games though it was strikingly evident to anyone who
reported for the nightly practice or was present at all the

Institute, was a very poor exhibition of football. No lead-
with a half-hearted spirit and were beaten before the
game had started, although anyone acquainted with football will acknowledge that individually
Alfred outclassed the opposing team in both speed and strength.
The Mansfield game was far better and at times hotly contested. The Mansfield team was strong,
fast and aggressive. Alfred showed a slight improvement but did not know the signals and played in
a loose, disorganized malmer. WVith the help of the Mansfield referee, who seemed to have a mania
for fining Alfred, the visitors secured a touchdown, the first in three years, and prevented Alfred's
attempts at scoring by dragging out the time and punting the ball at every opportunity
The next game was in the great Stadium at Syracuse. The journey was hard and the day hot so
that little life was evidenced at the beginning of the galne. The Freshmen gained two touchdowns
before Alfred had fairly got into the game, but they were Unable even to make their downs during the
remainder of the time. Had the game been played at home a very different score would have
Since the team had hitherto shown but little organization or response to the quarterback, Coach
Cottrell undertook the responsibility ofthis position for the remainder of the season. The marked
improvement that his experience and generalship made in the team was ably demonstrated in the
game with Merill Mechanics Institute, which needs no discussion. Suffice it to say that the M. M.

The Hobart game cameas a sort of "black-eye" at
this time but the defeat cannot be attributedto mere play-
ing ability of either team. The game was entirely in the
hands of an unfair referee and reflects no credit upon the
Hobart management, a fact which their coach, Mr.
Reynolds, hasacknowledged in public.
Realizing this, the Alfred team practiced for the
'l'hanksgiving Day game with renewed energy, and when
the real thing in the line of intel'collegiate football came,
the game with St. Bonaventure, they played in a manner
almost inconceivable at the beginning of the season, with
the result tml well-known to need mention.
The fact that the I9l0 football team was, for the
most part, composed of Sophomores and Freshmen, with
the added possibility of new candidates from the incoming
Freslnnen class, makes the outlook for I9I I very favorable.

ROSl'lfC'l'S are excellent for a winning team this year. Although many of the
1910 Varsity will not don suits, the battery is still intact andthe new men who
have been rated as fast ball-tossers will probably more than make up for their loss.
The pitching staff will be strong, ably headed by Captain HKing', Welton,
who has shown great improvement in both speed and control since the beginning of
the daily work-outs in the cage, and who has a close second in "Miken Fischer, our
cold-weather southpaw. Hl,ittle Georgie" our bantam back-stop, will look well in the

numerous candidates for the receiving end of the battery. An entirely new infield will
have to be developed, but from the large number of men with good reputations that have
reported, it is a safe wager that we will have an inlield covering the ground Hlike the
dew.', ln the outfield we have but one of last year's team, Champlin, a sure hitter
who will set a hard pace for those aspiring to that position.
Manager Crumb, who has demonstrated his ability in such a position in times past,
has arranged a line schedule, though somewhat hampered by the shortness of the
season. With the united support of the student-body, the team should make good.

TH E INTERSCHCLASTIC M EET
HE second annual Interscholastic Track and Field meet was held Thursday, May
19, 1910. A larger and. more representative bunch of athletes and a larger
throng of spectators than the meet of the previous year had witnessed greeted
the announcer on that day. Of the schools entered Olean, Warsaw and Alfred
Academy were the most fully represented and it was among these three that the keenest
rivalry developed. After a series of closely contested events Olean finally gained first
place and won the coveted trophy, banner. l
Judging from the statistics of our first two meets, we have high hopes and
aspirations for the future of these yearly occasions and, under proper management,
there seems to be no reason why we should be disappointed. We feel that we owe a
large debt of gratitude to the loyal "Alfred Club of New York City," which initiated
and has heretofore stood back of of the Hlnterscholasticf' Also no small thanks are
due to the kind people of Alfred who have so graciously and hospitably offered their
homes for the entertainment of our guests at such times.
With this fine beginning we have a right to be optomistic, although this year will
see, for the first time, the Athletic Association assuming tne entire responsibility and
management of the meet.
With the improvements that have been made in our track facilities and apparatus
and the advancements which will, no doubt, materialize in the future, the worth of the
ul . H . . . . .
nterscholastic to our University can scarcely be predicted. Such gatherings of high
school representatives, filled with the spirit of true sportmanship and exhibiting strength
and skill in the presence of so many keenly interested spectators, cannot but result in a
more thorough and more mutually satisfactory understanding, not only between our
University and the participating high schools, but between the high schools themselves.

ALFRED UNIVERSITY MONTHLY
HE Alfred University Monthly'-'What tis it? Why is it?
T The reputed aim of the magazine is to encourage literary work
I xx ry among the students, to be a true mirror of college life and spirit, and
to offer a means of communication among the Alumni and friends of
4 the University." Yet the Editors and the greater part of the student
body feel that we have fallen far short of a worthy purpose.
Probably there is no student today who does not have some means of discovering his
native literary ability, and yet, when he has finished the required work in the
department of English, he allows this power to lie dormant save for an occasional
article at lyceum. Too often this same organization Hmirrors the life and spirit" of
the student body. We do things for lyceum under the stress of student sentiment,
fearful, perhaps, lest we be called a shirk. "Public opinion" probably has more direct
influence among college students than anywhere else. It ought to be regarded
as shirking to neglect the Monthly just as much as lyceum or Christian Association.
But not one student in fifty, outside of the Board of Editors, feels a direct respon-
sibility for the publication of the magazine and we let ourselves down easily by means
of that frazzled old cord, "l'm busy.', Do you think that you can say this over and
over, pay your subscription, read a few pages if you are so inclined, and leave the
Editors of the College magazine indebted to you for what you have done?
What we as college students need is a deeper appreciation of the work involved in
the publishing of a magazine even of this size- We need to know more of the details
of the task, the process of getting material ready, of time and eFfort spent soliciting
"ads" and what it means to mail some five hundred copies each month to subscribers.
We need to know how the paper exists before we can determine what it means to us.
And having once learned this we will refrain from undue or unkind criticism. Friendly
and careful criticism is just what we need to give and to get. Without any thought of
uknockingn each student should examine every number of the Monthly as it comes out
and judge it merits and demerits, and suggest improvements, openly and fearlessly.
This is the only way for a college publication to keep out of the rut and to progress
steadily. Are we keeping up the Monthly out of habit? Then we had better stop
unless it possesses some fundamental good for all. '
The Alumni expressed the desire to get in closer touch with old A. U. again, and
they have responded heartily to the chance offered them by a new department this
year. What we want is a similar feeling of need, a deeper enthusiasm and a greater
sense of individual responsibility among the under-graduates. When we have attained
this there will be no What or Why, for the Monthly will be given a language peculiar
to itself and intelligible to us all. '

I Q i
HE New York State School of Clay-working and Ceramics was founded in 1900 hy legislative
action. Its purpose is to afford teclmical education, with free tuition to residents of the
State, in the field of the the clay-working industries. The work constitutes an important
hranch of chemical engineering and looks to the more extensive use of clay products in
structural and domestic wares. There are several distinct hranches of investigation and instruction.
In the development of clay properties and the conservation of natural resources there is wide
opportunity for the testing of clays and other mineral deposits and this leads up to the general
education of students in the science of technology of clay-working.
In the department of technology the work is founded upon a liuowledge of chemistry and physics
hut students are required to study the usual college suhjects which ohtain in a scientific course.
These comprise mathematics, modern languages, lfnglish and natural science, as well as a certain
amount of work in drafting, wood-shop and machine-shop. Practice is afforded in the actual lllilllll-
facture of clay wares of every description. Upon graduation a student is qualified to enter a
mamtfactory and eventually to assume a responsihlc position.
Young women are admitted to the course in ceramic art in which special attention is paid to
drawing, design, modeling and the making of pottery. Any student who is prepared for college may
enter this course, tuition heing free to residents of the State. A year's work in chemistry is given
and upon this is founded instruction in the preparation of glazes and colors for ceramic use. The
principal openings for graduates are in the line of special teachers of drawing and clay-working in
the puhlic schools though some have successfully essayed the production of pottery for sale.
'lihe school also undertakes the investigation of prohlems and difficulties in manufacture and in
this way the student gains an insiglu into the practical questions of the factory.

TI-IE ALFRED TI-IEOLOGICAL SHMINARY
Hli work of the Seminary is best demonstrated by the careers of her graduates.
The following men were chosen at random as types ofthe Seventh Day Baptist
Ministers and Missionaries.
'l'i-ii: Riav. Gao. B. SHAW
Mr. Shaw graduated from the Alfred Theological Seminary in 1895. Sometime
during his course he joined the Orophilian Lyceum. As his pastoral work prevented
his regular attendance at its weekly sessions he promised the lyceum that some evening
he would furnish the entire program. The time came and, after having opened the
session with song and devotions, he read a scientific treatise, presented a philosophical
dissertation, gave a side-splitting recitation, and delivered a scholarly oration.
After having served several churches in Westerii New York, he became the pastor
of the New York City church. In 1902 he resigned to accept a call from the
Plainfield, N. sl. church. For the past two years Mr. Shaw has been pastor of the
Hourishing church at North l,oup, Neb., a most promising field.
THE Riav. H. liuoisula DAvis
Mr. Davis came to Alfred in 1898 where he continued his studies for nine years.
1-le graduated from A. U. with the class of 1904. lfugene was a great lover and
promoter of all clean college sports. As captain of the football and baseball teams he
was the inspiration of every player. r1'hroughout his student days he was closely
connected with the Y. M. C. A. and C. lf. work. In the autumn of 1904 he began
his theological course, at the same time serving the churches at Hartsville and Hornell.
Early in 1907 Mr. Davis accepted a call to Lieu-oo, China, as missionary. june 11,
1907, he married Mary A. Ross, of Plainfield, N. nl. Mr. Davis was ordained
August 22, 1907, and on October 1, accompanied by his wife, he sailed for Shanghai,

COMMENCEMENT DAY, 1910
THE CLASS OF 1910
iEp"Qggm HE Law of worthy life is fundamentally the law of strifeg it is only
S621 through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage
v7 T that we can move on to better things.
Acting on this principle, sixteen young men and women were presented
with sheep-skins by President Davis of Alfred University, which same
entitled and obliged them to take an active part in life's duties and
show that a college education has far more than cultural value. It now becomes
my painful task to deal as truthfully as I am able, with some of the results obtained by
the youngest alumni of our little college.
Supposedly, and, indeed, actually, all were permeated with a desire for the highest
social good and the class of 1910 were all specialists and represented nearly every im-
portant aspect of life. To deal with the remarkable history of the class of 1910, after
nine months' relief from motherly treatment and fatherly advice, would probably be a
shocking disclosure of the effects of a new environment and the throwing off of all
restraints. 1910 was out in that wide, wicked world you hear so much about four
years. Consequently, I think best to let this short story run along in an alphabetical,
illogical style. Being granted this indulgence, I will now attack the first member of
." 0' 31
our illustrious class.
A guilty conscience needs no accuser if you catch him at it. Neither does Harry
H. Allen who is now instructing young hopefuls at Long Island, a pleasure greatly en-
joyed by Harry when he isn't teaching. While not working, he is doing sociological
work along "The Great White Way."
Bad beginners make bad finishers, and that's precisely the case with a certain L.
F. Bacon, well known to the Faculty and students for always doing the wrong thing,
and who is dispensing various concoctions at a Drug Store in Canaseraga while not
otherwise enjoying himself by writing startling fragments from a too vivid imagination.
Next is sweet Alice with hair so Brown. She is making most rigid tests of Pro-
fessor Clarke's "Applied Psychology" at Silver Creek. The enjoyable part, so Alice
says, is the drawing of her salary.
It readily appears that the majority of 1910 wanted to inflict their magnetic per-
sonalities on unsuspecting children in the endeavor to mold and beautify their character.
To substantiate this, take the case of Guyon John Carter, our genius, and, if you
don't believe it, go down to Keuka College and hear him explain all the mysteries of
At Harvard, our Ford Stillman Clarke is still studying the deeper deceptions of
life as interpreted by our various modern philosophers, but every day is realizing more
completely that the practical considerations of life are more weighty than the theoretical.
Then, next in order, is Rodney Dore who used to make all of the fast talking
records for the Edison Phonograph Company. At the present time one can find him
in Texas engaged at trying to put in practice a few of the things taught by Professor
Binns, which Rodney hasn't yet forgotten.
Chas. DuBois of Alfred is, as complacently as ever, instructing the rural youth of
this neck of the woods on how to run a thousand dollar farm on a ten thousand basis.
The village of Arkport has our most hearty congratulations, and likewise our
deepest sympathy, in securing the services of that gifted social worker and poetess,
Mary Ellis Karr who made considerable noise during her noteworthy college career.
Also to the town of Belfast, friends of Alfred and of Laura Kate Lyman, offer
their sincerest congratulations for having the fairest product of classical torture which
was developed in the class of 1910.
For Fred McMaster, our most popular athlete and the most versatile of the "Cas-
tle Gang," rural communities offered slight inducements. So, he is at Troy, N. Y.,
where girls are galore and, naturally, Mac is in his glory, because his Alfred training at
the Brick and other female haunts makes him a competent ladies, man.
A few miles away from our Class President is stationed the "Class Joker," Mary
F. O'Connor, in the little town of Berlin where she is offering the community the use
of her inventive ability and mental capacity, in the vain endeavor to remember a few
facts she learned from Prof. P. E T. of the modern language department.
Considerably farther down the line is George Place, another disciple of Herbar-
tian principles, who is located at Corning and demonstrating to all the people that he
can walk the straight and narrow path.
Let us not forget Wm. Gates Pope, he of the stern mien and resolute purpose, a
fellow of principle and a fellow of action. Not content with a modest Ph. B. degree
he is striving at Cornell for further academic honors.
Here comes little John Ryan, but far away in Ginger, Texas. The town wasn't
named after him. However, they are thoroughly aware of his presence and Jack is at
his specialty, brick making, real bricks, not gold.
Our "Gold Brick" youth, "Get Rich Quick" Jacob Hepner Randolph is at
New Kensington, Pa., using all of his business skill in promoting sales for the Alum-
inum Cooking Utensil Co. All of his Alfred friends have undoubtedly heard him tell
of Aluminum and of the Northwestern Mutual Co. Jake has many schemes in his
mind, as usual, and is selling gold mine stock on the side. -
As a climax to this little report of the activities of 1910, allow me to present
Arthur Stukey of Caledonia fame who is learnedly explaining everything concerning
the structure of the earth and its development prior to the time Adam and Eve left the
In conclusion, pardon the writer if this article seems somewhat frivolous as there
was no intention to detract, in any manner, from the character and ability of any
member of the class of 1910. All of them are working hard and devotedly at their
respective tasks and every day are making use of the excellent preparation given them
by hard study, helping teachers, and that fine, loyal, friendly feeling which is a syno-
nym for that meaningful word, Alfredism. Each member is demonstrating the practi-
cal utility of a liberal education in a closely supervised college where individual develop-
ment is the principle desideratum.

the Vigilance Committee will now present the matter.
WILCOX Mr. President.
WILCOxf"'The Vigilance Committee have looked over the material which the
editors of the Kanakadear have handed in, and after much consideration have decided
to share the responsibility with the faculty, because it seems to them that the question
whether this Kanadadear should go forth representing the college is a mooted one.
They would like to have the faculty examine and discuss it, not passing judgment

' 'Ahl She sleeps
M y lady sleeps!
Fucia slowly nods her head as Prof. jimmie's voice rolls unceasingly forth in a lengthy discussion
of our cranial attributes. On the verge of dreamland she murmurs,
"What care I for Sally's bones?
Let them rest in peace, she moans,
As for me, I'd rather sleep
Than to look at such a freak."
Suddenly our wandering attention is directed not toward Jimmie but toward Fucia whose eyes are
firmly fixed on the skull which lies on the table in front of her. Harli! Does she hear words issuing
from its bony jaws? No! But she seems to be disclosing the miraculous phrenology of one of her class-
mates ancl continues:
"Surely I recognize the prominent bump beneath his curly locks. This hump must occupy the
most important Plan' of his whole existence.
"Ah!" says Fucia, "Norton,"
Now it seems as if the skull changes into the features of her classmates and vividly she reads the
characteristics displayed by their many and various bumps.
"Rosalie's bump I can hardly see for it's almost as flat as a Chip.
What can this form be, which looks like a bushel basket? That's easy. I might know that is Kent's
entire bmnp on himself.
Dora Cook's lnost noticeable projection is a "Spoon er" is it a ring?
Now the skull changes form and the face of Marjorie appears before me, round and smiling. On
her head are bumps of knowledge, but even more prominent than these is one of shamrock hue
resembling a Bank. Erin ffgo --Bragh!
Ah! who is this with the golden, wavy hair? Such love-lorn eyes! His phrenology need not Harris
me, for l,arry's bumps form only four letters R-u-t-h.
Here I recognize friend Roy Quick because of his ever red cheeks. There isa projection near the
apex of his occipital bone which emphasizes his excessive talents in photography.
limma, your bumps are enormous and the "psychological reason" for this I presulne is your great
aptitude in taking on additional avoirdupois in all directions.
Here's Lillian Halsey. One does not have to look at her bumps to tell that she is good natured.
That can be told by her continual smile that will never wear off.
This slight hollow must be for Rod's absence and the numerous other bumps are for those men
after whom Alberta will still seek.
Our football player, Bill Welton, comes next. The uniformity of his frontal region shows that he
is perfectly sane in not caring much about the girls but I cannot help noticing a certain Brown appear-
ance of his whole cranium."
"Well," says Fucia, "here is the map of Ireland. Why, no, I do believe it's Patrick Kissan!
what a striking resemblance!
No one could mistake these curly black locks. Lucian's lnost prominent bulnp looks like a New
jersey girl. A footballic projection ranks next.
As his features fade, still another Burdick appears. This time it is Marguerite. On her"physiog"
musical ability is plainly discerned and judging from her bumps it has also gone to her head.
Donald's head appears very strange, resembling Alfred baked beans of a Van CampCenl's variety.
This is surely Arthur Whitney. His temporal portions are well developed showing that he excels
in tutoring Geometry. But perhaps these will be soon overcome by the Peg which is growing in the
Of course Ruth must have some bumps on her head. But owing to its soft consistency' one cannot
be distinguished from the other.
Karr's golden locks conceal the huge bumps of knowledge which he certainly must possess. "And
still they gazed, and still the wonder grew, that one small head could carry all he knew."
Now the head broadens and the good natured mouth I recognize as Ella Crumh's. Her friendship
bump is well developed as is also the one which makes her a proficient member of the "tee-hee"
On this next pate I can easily see the bumps. There are so few of them. George Williams'
main one, however, indicates a desire to get a girl, and a secondary one, how best to avoid work.
And if here isn't Dot Wilner! Her literary bumps are in evidence but overshadowing everything
there seems to hover a Bill-like appendage.
Now a strange looking head appears before me. The bumps resemble bundles of oats and from
their scattered appearance it is evident that Tobe's are wild ones.
I cannot easily fathom these projections of Florence Gorton's. I see an inclination toward mascu-
line admiration in general and Dan Rogers' in particular.
A Klu Kluxer now meets my gaze. Occupying the whole top of Coats' head is a projection which
makes him the foremost gentleman of his Klan.
Elva's bump of patience stands out very noticeably. It must have suddenly appeared one day while
waiting for Tobe. Never mind, Elva Better late than never.
By the features, I should judge this to be Carl Meritt. But his humps soar so far up in the air that
I cannot discern them.
Gardiner looks as if he had wheels in his head. This is very suggestive of his future vocation.
To whom could that huge bump of independence belong except Kivett? It certainly shows how
greatly he values his opinions and rights. l
Myrtle's bumps are all in the form of books. On the cover of one of these l can read Ugrindo,
grindere, grindsi, grindsus."
Here 's Babcock! Owing to the high moral atmosphere of Alfred, skating rinks ought to he pro-
The smiling, round countenance ofa Dutch girl comes next. A development of the posterior
lobes shows me that Mary has had a severe case of acute hysteria. Banquet season doesn 't agree with
Here 's Mike! Another Dutchman and with an Irish name at that. All his bumps have a peculiar
leaning toward Andover
Carl Makeley's bumps are conspicuous by their absence. Thin is due to his reticent nature, how-
ever we know that still waters run deep.
Still another head presents itself to view. Beals Ensign Litchfield French. Nuf sed.
This amiable countenance bears an immense globe in the middle, which interpreted, means that
Clarence Greene is our valiant football center.
Leon's rectangular bumps show his extreme fondness for the Brick, or rather its fair occupants.
I can easily recognize Gordon Phillips by his rosy cheeks. His phrenology, however, shows that
Gordon is a star in all arts which require great mental ability.
Buz-z-z-z-z'-z-z ! ! !
"Fucia! Fucia! Fucial" said Elizabeth suddenly starting up as the hell rang. She turned to
her sister who sat up rubbing her eyes as if awakening from bad dreams. "Yes, I'm coming Lucia,"
said Fucia rising in a dazed manner, and looking around at Jimmie, "Have I been dreaming?"

ALFRED ACADEMY-A HISTORY
HE sturdy, progressive pioneers from New England, who, in 1807, settled the town
Q 1 of Alfred, were highly appreciative of the value of. education. Descendants of
- men who, for the sake of rehgous freedom, were willing to exile themselves from
their homeland to make for themselves, by grim determination and endurance of
0' 35 V privation, a home in the trackless wilderness of an unexplored continent, they had
" 001 9

5 come to realize the close relation between religion and education and that the one
was indispensable to the other. lint in those early times schools other than the
common district schools were very rare, and the expense of obtaining any education beyond that
afforded by them was so great as to place it beyond the reach of the great majority.
The first sign of advancement was the organizing of a singing-school by Maxon Stillman in 1834-35.
A contemporary writer said, "This was one of the first efforts in the direction of better training for
the young." Encouraged by the success of this enterprise, Mr. Stillman took an active part in
preparing for a select school which followed a little later. A Mr. Church, who was interested in the
higher education of young people, visiting the town at this time, was persuaded by Mr, Stillman
and others to come back the following year and establish a select school, if twenty students could be
secured, each one to pay a tuition fee of three dollars. In the fall of 1836 he returned, but, finding
only sixteen pupils, he went from house Io house and from farm to farm in the neighboring towns
and finally obtained thirty-seven students.
At this time there were but eight or ten houses in the town and an upper room in the largest of
these, located just below the present post-office and belonging to Orson Sheldon, the only merchant,
was secured for the use of the school. The room was neither lathed nor plastered, but three of the
trustees did this work and, when a small blackboard, which was considered quite a novelty in those
days, had been made and placed on the wall, and rough boards had been put up for desks, the new
school was ready to begin operations, opening on the fifth day of December, 1836, each student being
requested to bring a chair for his own use. The fame of this infant school was spread for many miles
and aroused nmch interest.
A subscription of about five hundred dollars was now raised by the earnest efforts of the trustees,
for a separate building to better accomodate the school and in the fall of 1837 this was completed. It
was of wood and measured twenty-eight by thirty-eight feet on the ground and was one story in
height. Owing to a peculiarity in the construction of the arched ceiling, it was named by the students
the "Horned Bug," but was known to the teacher and trustees as the "Codmus."
Mr. Church taught but one year and was superseded by james R. Irish of Union College, Schenec-
tady. He received a salary of twenty-five dollars a month and "board at one place." Mr. Irish
resigned in 1839 and Wm. C. Kenyon, also a Union College student, took his place, making the jour-
ney to Dansville by canal packet and coming from there on foot, much of the way through unbroken
forests. He opened the spring term of 1839 with a registration of twenty-five scholars.
From this time the school began to grow rapidly and this growth was largely the result of the zeal
of the new teacher, who went about the country lecturing on education to such good effect that
students began to come from far and wide to attend the "Academy" as it was now beginning to be
The work became more than one man could attend to and Mr. Kenyon accordingly selectedacorps
of teachers to assist him.
Mr. Kenyon remained at the head of the institution until he died in 1867. A fitting tribute was paid
to his work by one who said, "For high standing in intellectual and moral reforms, Allegany County
and all Southwestern New York owe more to William C. Kenyon and his co-workers than to all
other influences combined." He was succeeded by President jonathan Allen, who had entered
school, a poor boy, splitting wood to pay his expenses. He put his whole heart into his work and
was loved and respected by all with whom he came in contact, as a teacher and as a friend. The
school was his very life, and his high ideals, his untiring energy and sacriHce, all combined to make
his memory sacred to those who knew him.
After two years under Professor Kenyon, it had been necessary to enlarge the school building to
accomodate the increasing number of students, and in 1841 atwo-story addition was built. This
was forty-two feet in length and thirty in width and was erected at an expense of about two thousand
five hundred dollars. The first floor was used as a chapel and the second was partitioned off into
classrooms. After the grounds for a campus on the western slope of Pine Hill were obtained, the
building was known as West Hall and was used for a dormitory, but was later sold and rebuilt for a
On january first, 1843, the school was formerly incorporated by act of legislature under the title
of "Alfred Academy and Teachers' Seminary." No classes, however, were regularly graduated until
1847, though the classes of '44, '45, and '46 are given in the "General Catalogue for 1876. The
continued growth of attendance necessitated, in 1845, the erection of three new buildings, one, North
Hall, a men's dormitory on the site where the Steinheim now stands, later was bought by the village
authorities and moved down the hill, where it was used for the public school, then being bought by a
private citizen who used it for a hotel and was finally restored to the school and is known at present
as Burdick Hall. Another building, South Hall, was built for a ladies' dormitory, the upper floor
being used for a chapel and recitation rooms. This building burned on February fourteenth, 1856.
It was located near the site where the Observatory now stands. The third was Middle Hall. In its
basement was the students' boarding hall while the upper rooms were occupied by two of the pro-
fessors. Middle Hall was finally purchased by Professor Allen for a dwelling and still exists,
familiarly known to Alfred people as the "White House."
The famous chapel came into existence in 1852 as a result of the constant growth of the school
and has continued in use since then, first as the main building of the school and afterwards as the
After 1852 many began to feel that the school ought to be incoporated as a college and finally in
1857 a University Charter was drawn up and passed by the legislature. About this time, too, the
Lyceums for men and for women began to be organized.
From 1857 until 1897 the academy was continued with the college, after which a definite division
was made between them, each having a separate faculty. Their aims and interests, however, were
practically identical and they were still closely related. This division brought up the question as to
whether they should have separate literary societies in the Academy. Since their work was not so
far advanced as that of the college students it was deemed advisable for them to establish a society of
their own, the seniors and juniors of the Academy being permitted to join one of the lyceums. This
idea was opposed by the principal, but came up again a few years later, when two or three attempts
were made to form societies, only one of which presented a desirable constitution. This was
organized as a debating club, but on breaking up a few years ago, was superseded by the present non-
secret, Greek Letter Society, the Alpha Kappa Tau. A large number belong to this organization
and the work is of a very high order.
Thus the Academy is now the local high school, a training school for teachers and a special
preparatory school for the college. For many years the school has maintained an enviable reputation
for efficiency in every way and her students and faculty are justly proud of her.

NYONE who intends to engage in the profession of teaching should realize
the importance of careful and consistent professional preparation. The
training class, organized upon the authority of the State Department of
Education, offers an exceptional opportunity for such preparation. Great
benefit is here derived by the young teacher in observing good teaching and in "practice
teaching" while being observed by experienced teachers.
The Training Class is conducted by an able teacher well acquainted with the
problems of school life and with the methods employed in the various branches of
Alfred has many educational advantages to offer its students, such as access to the
reference libraries and reading room of the University, where may be found many
periodicals devoted to educational interests. The literary societies and the religious
organizations of the University are open to the members of the Training Class. The
University department of Music offers its excellent instruction to all students. Courses
in Domestic Science and General Agriculture may be obtained in the State School
of Agriculture recently established at Alfred. Students in the class may take up any
subjects in the Academy in addition to the regular work.
No tuition is charged to regular members of the class. New classes are organized
in September of each year but candidates may enter at the beginning of the second
semester if they intend to remain in the class an entire year.

my Training Class friends. I knew not that I slept but there came

spent her time on Arithmetic and had taken no course in Domestic Science. Erml Pierce

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1911
HIS class started out on its brilliant career by electing its oflicers and selecting
colors-old gold and white. Then for several weeks most of its time was spent
in watching the others, learning how to act, and in getting its studies arranged.
The first real event was a class spread, held outside the village, and attended
by about forty persons, including representatives from all the other classes. But the
greater part of the year was spent in hard labor, with little diversion except in getting
used to the study hall rules and in overcoming bashful ways.
In the second year, these people as sophomores thought they knew nearly everything,
afterjust one year in the Academy. Soon they found that they were still quite ignorant
and so settled down to work, making rather an uneventful year.
During the third year this class became more prominent, for now its members were
"upper classmenf, Their advice was asked on important matters and they were given
special privileges on account of their position. This was indeed a jolly bunch ofyoung
people ready for fun, when studies were done, and always having a good time. They
did much in the line of entertaining but never allowed their marks in school to go down.
A corn roast on Pine Hill will be especially remembered by those who attended, as
well as the Ubread ball game" by lirelight.
When this class of 1911 reached its fourth year it felt decidly timid for now it was
the senior class and looked up to by the other classes. It had lost many of its old
members and gained new ones, but it kept its reputation for hard work and an earnest,

R. Ernest G. Green, genial and portly, eminent author and nerve specialist,
turned in his office chair and beamed at me over his gold-rimmed eye-glasses.
"Oh yes," said he cheerfully, UI can give you information concerning the
location and occupation of every living member of Alfred Academy, 1911. Most inter-
esting class," he continued, as he consulted an index and a neat row of note books.
"In fact quite the most interesting class ever graduated from the Academy.
"Edward Greene for instance owns and operates a great air-ship line and is many
times a millionaire. Leon Bassett is a telephone magnate and Daniel Rogers through
his mechanical inventions has made fame and fortune.
Aquila England and Horace Hall are conducting a great business in New York
City at the old John Wanamaker place.
Aaron Coon is a world renowned lawyer. Perhaps you will remember that Aaron
had a remarkable gift of speech even in his school days.
Sidney Burdick is Prof. of Mathematics in Harvard but spends his summers in Alfred.
A curious thing about the class is that none of the girls ever married.
Julia Simpson has taught for years at Vassar and owns a beautiful place on the
Hudson. .Florence Potter and Nina Palmiter have splendid farms on the Alfred hills.
These farms are connected with the Agricultural School and are very valuable. Luella
Eells is a portrait painter and an artist of note. Her summer home is also at
Alfred. Marian jordan and Effie Thomas are employed in the Alfred Carnegie
Library at line salaries and Carol Stillman is at the head of the Domestic Science
Department in the State School of Agriculture. All the men in the class married
except myself and I have always been too busy." And he replaced the notebook and
turned to the telephone.

OW" there dwelt in a Certain l.and a very mighty King, King of the Sophs
who are ever in mortal combat with the Frosh. He called for his Fischer and
Sheppard and said unto them:
UGO search this terrible enemy, these arrogant and stilfnecked Frosh, and find where
they feast. Spy out allthe land and bring me word that l may cast them into prison.
They have greatly displeased me with their great and mighty Ayars by plotting to
banquet in secret. l and my people have triumphed over them once with feasting and
yet again will l he victor over them."
So on the morrow they set out. Now their way lay over Kanakadea ford and by
miracle the Sheppard leaped it but the Fischer could not so the Sheppard journeyed on
alone. There are some to this day who say the Fischer, after many days, was found
on a lonely isle in the St. .lohn's river.
At even the Sheppard lodged at a gold Smith's and at the first crowning of the cocks
arose and journeyed into the land of the enemy. N
ln the second year of the reign of King of the Sophs, in the ninth month, on the
twentieth day ofthe month the Sheppard heheld extensive preparations for a great feast.
Before the banquet hall stood a monster Griffiths guard with huge Orms-by his side.
'l'he Sheppard returned to his King and said:
HYour Grace, they are discovered," and told him all.
So the Sophs triumphed over their enemy again and the king ordered all his Harolds
to proclaim the glad tidings with trumpets and stringed instruments.
Once more he sent for his Sheppard and brought him into his palace saying:
"Thou hast proved thyself a faithful and 'liru-man, Lang-worthy of reward. Go
thy way for thou shalt have half my kingdom."

Critic ICRMI. I. Pnaizci:
HAT there is much to be gained from debate and the literary society among
students is an undisputed fact. Such work is highly essential to the best
development of the individual. To this end, accordingly, a number of the
students of Alfred Academy assembled in one of the classrooms on an evening of
November, l9U7, and after due deliberation the society was formed which has since
been known as the Alpha Kappa Tau. Any student of the Academy is eligible to mem-
bership and may join by vote of the society. 'I'he meetings are regularly held on
Tuesday evening of each week.
It would be difficult to express in words the help to be gained from such an organi-
zation. The confidence in onels self, whereby the best thoughts are put into best
form, the opportunity for parlimentary practice which may prove of great value in
after life, finally the spirit of unity in work, both instructive and entertaining. Many
of our members have passed on to the college where, we believe, they have been
able to do better work because of training received in Alpha Kappa 'l'au. Uthers who
have not found it possible to continue to the higher education, have gone out into life
better prepared for the work before them.
XVe feel sure that the Alpha Kappa 'l'au has come to stay and to be a permanent
part of the work of the Academy. l,et all join in making it useful and helpful to
ourselves and to others.

of the Athletic Association. This,

met with such decided success that
the work was continued, this time
pl it taking form in a Minstrel Show. This
' ' in its way, was equally successful
l ' E and as a result the Seniors and juniors
- decided to present a play as part of
the Commencement program. "Higbee of Harvard" was selected and its presentation
proved conclusively that the1'e was dramatic talent in the Academy.
No definite organization was formed until the beginning of this year when a meet-
ing of those who had taken part in the plays of the previous year was called and the
Academy Dramatic Association came into being. The first program of the season
was a speaking contest held in Academy Hall. This was followed a few weeks later
by an Academy Fair, the main attraction being two laughable farces, "Murder Will
Out" and "lt's Great to be Crazy." The fair was a pronounced success, financially
and in every other way. Several members of the casts were inexperienced but acquitted
themselves very creditably. The principal work of the season is now under way in
preparing to present the drama HComrades." This will be followed by the second
annual Commencement play.
We are largely indebted for our success to Miss Grace E. Burdick who was in
charge last year and to Miss Agnes Kenyon and Miss Chloe Clarke, the directors of
the work this year.

'THLETICS are quite extensively taken up
in Alfred Academy and are entirely under
the direction and control of the Athletic
Association of the Academy. We are proud to
say that we have an enviable record in this line.
OOTBALL has been for the past few years the chief sport in high
' schools and Alfred Academy is no exception to the rule. During the

'fi iw high schools of this section of the state. For three years it was not
scored against and it has been defeated but three times in five years.
Many football players from surrounding schools can remember with
Y sorrow the machine-like precision of action that so characterizes our
style of play. lt has been the aim of the Academy to put out teams that would be a
credit to the school not only in the game but in the manliness of the players. Our
schedule for the past season included five games of which our team won three, in every
case playing opponents who outweighed us from five to fifteen pounds to the man.
mv well? I
Baseball, the great national game, is also largely taken up in Alfred Academy. ln
past years the team has had a very creditable record and we are striving each year
to maintain it. As the schedule is not yet filled out it cannot be published but a num-
ber of high schools have already applied for games. The prospects for a successful
season are very favorable as there are some members of last year's team to be relied
upon and plenty of new material to be chosen. With this material the Academy
should have one of the best teams that has ever represented it.
Owing to the fact that the Academy has no basketball hall this year the team is
forced to work very hard on the small court in the gymnasium, playing outside games
with what practice can be obtained there. By developing what material the captain
has, he will be able to put on the Hoor a winning team as strong, if not stronger than
the team of previous years. A number of games will be played if a satisfactory
schedule can be arranged.
Field and track athletics are rapidly growing in favor not only with schools but with
all athletic organizations and have recently become international. Eight or ten years
ago the Academy was in the habit of holding dual meets with the college and although
we were usually defeated much was gained from the practice. But in 1909 when the
New York Club of Alfred University began giving the Interscholastic meets the
Academy resolved not to be outdone by any school of like standing. They began
preparations early under the leadership of one of the professors and in the spring made
a very good showing considering the amount of practice. The next year, l9l0, the boys
were better organized and having the advantage of previous experience went into the meet
with better training and with better spirit. Although the Academy has been able to
reach third place only for the banner awarded to the school making the largest number
of points, we feel that our efforts have not been in vain and are encouraged by the
individual medals which our contestants have won.

" "" ' stretched upon the ground by the river banks stirred and silently arose.
About him others followed his example until twenty braves stood awaiting the command
of their chief who motioned in the direction of several canoes, turned bottom upward
upon the bank of the stream. Silently the Indians launched the canoes and 'paddled
swiftly up the river, never stopping until, rounding a sharp bend, they came upon a
village of perhaps thirty tepees and wigwams by the waterside. A pack of lean, half-
wild dogs gave them noisy greeting and from the tepees rushed those who had
remained in the village, eager to welcome the returning warriors.
As soon as the hunger of the newcomers had been appeased by a meal of venison,
bear meat and an especial dish of dog stew, a council was called to decide upon the
next move. The chief and head men sat in a circle about the council fire and those
not eligible to a seat in this august assemblage stood closely about them to hear the
wisdom of their elders. A solemn hush prevailed while a brave filled the huge
ceremonial stone pipe, and, taking a live coal from the fire, lighted it and handed it to
the chief. Now this chief was a peculiar man in some respects. He was of medium
height and, strange to say, had slightly wavy brown hair parted in the middle. He
was hawk-nosed and eagle-eyed, and, looking menacingly at some small boys on the
outskirts of the crowd, who were evidently forgetting that a council was in progress,
he said sharply, as two vertical lines appeared between his eyes: "Let's have no more
of that!" And the way the small boys slunk away showed his absolute authority.
He then took the proffered pipe, but he blew upon it instead of puffing it. Apparently
he had a strong objection to tobacco. Those who believe in reincarnation will have
little difficulty in recognizing him. The pipe passed around the circle and was laid
aside. Then the serious business of the council commenced. The chief arose,
muttered a few words, and from the assemblage there came a wail, long drawn out and
fearful, the words of which sounded something like, "How can l bear to leave thee-
brr-ugh-ugh-rrr-from thee-rrr-br-ugh-part." When this heart-rending cry, intended
to pacify the evil spirits hovering about the camp, had ceased, a mighty man, long of
limbs and prepossessing in appearance, stood up. His hair, faded no doubt by the
fierce summer sun, was tow-color, and his square manly jaw, covered with a youthful,
scattering beard, showed him to be a man of force and determination. As he addressed
the gathering his feeling grew in intensity and his voice, naturally high-pitched, rapidly
ascended the scale and reached the very top note, his words coming faster and faster
in a flow of overpowering eloquence.
When he, resumed his seat some time elapsed before anyone dared to burden the
atmosphere with more words. Then a woman forced her way forward and, breaking
all rules of precedent, in passionate tones demanded a hearing. The surprise of the
council was so great that no one tried to stop her. Her plea was one we are now
hearing all over the land, the cry of outraged womanhood for a part in the government.
She talked long and earnestly, pleading her cause with eloquent abandon, and when
she retired it was easy to see that she had made a great impression.
Before the braves could collect their scattered wits, another member of the supposed-
ly gentle sex came forward with steady, queenly gait, her head poised proudly, her
Olive eyes snapping with wrath. For a moment she swept the council with her gaze,
her lip curling scornfully. Then she demanded why these men were allowing all
precedent to be violated, but since they were, had they not enough politeness to
stand in the presence ofa lady? Where the came from they did differently, she
assured them. Then she rated them as only one possessed of the same transplanted
spirit we all know could, closing her speech with a fiery dart of sarcasm hurled at the
thoroughly frightened members of the council, who had Hevidently forgotton that
they were gentlemen." But who could blame them for forgetting anything and
everything under such a torrent of vituperation?
Then a tall, lithe and graceful girl, from her gentleness of spirit called "Fawn
Eyes," came and gently led the strenuous one away to recover from her efforts.
Loud howls were now heard from behind a tepee near which the men were seated,
and forth rushed a gasping, pop-eyed urchin, who had evidently been engaged in some
mischievous prank, closely followed by a tall, black haired squaw, whose brows were
drawn together in an habitual frown. She caught the miscreant and gave him a
severe scolding, the effect of which was marred by the fact that she was forced to
smile in the midst of it. Despite her serious nature, she was the picture of health and
this was due to the fact that she believed in a system known now as Fletcherism, the
whole secret of which is to mastimfe everything well. She followed this to the letter,
even, it is said, chewing her words.
The chief, whose irritation had been steadily increasing at the numerous interruptions,
annoyed beyond endurance by this last occurrence, now arose and with an impatient
wave of his hand dismissed the council, saying: "That will do for this morninglu

FACULTY AND ASSISTAN S
He's the busiest man in town,
He's known all over the State,
By men of great renown,
In Albany where they legislate,
But his beautiful kindly spirit,
Is felt by us one and all,
I-Ie's ready to do whate'er he can,
No matter how great or how small.
An "Angel" in name and in deed,
She teaches us how to cook ----- ,
To wash and to sew and all things you know,
That house-keepers have in their need.
She's a friend to the girls, and a friend to the boys,
And does not say "don't," when they're making a noise.
The Ag. Students love her, there's no one above her,
And here's to the health of Miss Wood.
You can hear it in the ol'l'ice, you can hear it on the stair,
You can hear it in the class-room, you can hear it everywhere,
It belongs to an Ag. Professor, the one with the mighty voice,
A man who has the school at heart, our own C. O. DuBois.
He teaches you your Botany, he teaches gardening too,
And he gives you all the hardest names, that I guess ever grew.
But back behind those whiskers, you can always see hint smile,
For he's got a big thing up his sleeve, that gets you all the while.
Yes, he teaches Breeds and Breeding and he teaches Feeds and Feeding,
And knows enough to come in from the rain,
In WISCONSIN he will meet you,
With hard problems he will greet you,
But his hair, it keeps on growing just the same.
Perhaps he can not milk a cow, perhaps he can't saw wood,
Perhaps its because he don't know how, perhaps he wouldn't if he could
But there is no "perhaps" about this, he surely knows how to play,
And masterly conducts the singing at assembly every day.
At the foot of the Alfred Campus,'the Ag. School smithy stands,
The smith he surely is a Starr, with small and pretty hands.
And in his cheek you'll always see
His "Honest Scrap," or what e'er it be.
Softly and lightly there she goes,
Tripping along upon her toes,
Refined in manners, in speech and in clothes,
She is an artist everyone knows.
"Look at your book and not at me,
And on the pages of chemistry,
Find plenty of work for you to do,
'Twill look like more before you're thru."
"Now up in OUR COUNTY, you know where it is,
We are all hustlers and tend strictly to hiz.
We have no trouble in making things grow,
And everything goes as it should, Don't you know."
Have you ever met Miss Hood?
If you havnft, well you should,
She knows the business thru and thru,
She can tell you what to do, where to go and what to say,
When you mustn't, when you may,
She's the S-e-c-r-e-t-a-r-y.
Do not judge him by his hair, but by that ever smiling face,
And in the wood shops over there, you'll always find him in his place,
And the assistant, he's there too, helping me and helping you.
Were you ever in the Ag. School oflicc, have you seen the girl in the chair?
The girl who smiles and always works, the girl with the golden hair,
A stenographer with one great sin, as into the office the Boss steps in,
"What's that?" you ask. O, simply the hoys,
Who stick around and make a noise.
He has not many hairs on his head,
And the other day do you know what he said,
"Without a moustache no one can pass
From the N. Y. S. A. in the Senior class."
O! there is a man that perhaps you have seen,
His first name is Walter, his last name is Green.
He'll put muscles on you if any one can,
And he'll straighten you up so you'll look like a man.
He's a father to the fellows, that stay down at the Farm,
He tucks them into bed at night, and keeps them from all harm.
There's a constant smile upon his face, that says he's never sad,
And that's why all the fellows call Superintendent Morton "Dad,"
THE SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE
HE New York State School of Agriculture at Alfred University took its rise
from a course in general agriculture offered in the University in 1902 and
continued thereafter for several years. By 1905 in several parts of the United
States, efforts were being made to provide special schools of agriculture and
domestic science. For over fifty years, previous to efforts in America, special schools
of this nature had met with increasing approval in several European countries. In 1906
provision was made for the establishment of a School of Agriculture at St. Lawrence
University, at Canton, N. Y., and on May 6, 1908, Gov. Chas. li. Hughes signed
acts that provided for the establishment and maintenance of two other special schools
of agriculture and domestic science, one at Morrisville, and one at Alfred University.
The men who served the interests of the School in securing the pass ge of the
enabling act were notably, President Boothe C. Davis, Judge Peter B. McLennan,
Assemblyman jesse S. Phillips, Senator VVm. J. Tully and Gov. Chas. E. Hughes.
The local, county, and state branches of the Patrons of Husbandry cordially and
substantially aided Alfred University in its campaign forthe School. Cornell University
and the State Department of Agriculture were likewise in favor of the establishment of
a school of agriculture at Alfred.
The general policy of the School is determined by a Board of Managers presided
over by the President of Alfred University, composed largely of trustees of the
University, and having as rx-olfrio members, the State Commissioner of Agriculture, the
dean of.the Cornell College of Agriculture and a State Grange member. All buildings
must be planned and supervised throughout their construction by the State Architect.
All moneys are disbursed by the state comptroller on vouchers attested by the President
of the University, the Director of the School, the Secretary of the Board of Managers,
and the Treasurer of Alfred University.
The object of the school is to train young men and women for successful, enlighten-
ed life in the country. Hence a course of study must be provided that is at once
attractive, profitable and feasible to those who look forward to country life, Since
agriculture and domestic science studies are at least of high school grade, and since a
student entering the school should have mature thought of the vocation that is to
claim him after school days, the following ideas have controlled the curriculum:
The school work opens the third week in October, and closes with the first week in
April, hereby providing for twenty-four weeks of school when farm work is slack.
For students who have only a common school education it requires three such years to
complete the course. For high school graduates the work can be completed in two
years. Students should have had practical experience on a farm, or if young women,
in house-keeping, before undertaking the course. About a third of the work is unapplied
whereas two-thirds is purely agricultural and domestic.
lt is expected that the great majority of students who attend the School will, on
leaving, enter some country life occupation. In schools similar to this School over
ninety per cent of the students upon completing their courses enter some country life
work. Thus far, students of the Alfred School go out to take up various lines of farm
work. Not a few will no doubt soon work up to leasing and owning farms. In the
near future a small proportion of the students will doubtless take advantage of the
opportunity of teaching agriculture and domestic science in the public schools.
Most people admit that education pays, but of those who doubt this fact many live in
the country. Recently it has been shown by Dr. Warren of Cornell University that
the educated man on the farm gets material reward for his labor quite as much as does
the educated man elsewhere. Dr. Warren's data may be summarized as follows:
The farmer with a common school education makes 65300 a year, with a high school
education 8600, and with a college education 25900.
As the students of the School go out we shall expect them to obtain reasonable salaries
in good time, but we look forward with even greater expectancy to the "pay" which
they will receive by invigorating our national life in all of its essential phases. Funda-
mental progress begins when all phases of human experience are considered, and
fundamental progress in the country side will be made when the farmer and his family
are the enthusiastic agencies actively solving the problems of rural backwardness,
isolation and prejudice. Surely the laborer in every field is worthy of his hire and not
less because he labors in the country, but the daily dedication of mind, body and ideals
to the abiding needs of life transforms every occupation into a calling and teaches us our
life motto: "Whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his
life for My sake the same shall save it."

DOMESTIC SCIE CE
1-llf study of home economics may not usher in the millenium but it will
do more towards its advancement than many another of the great
educational movements. The homes and the home life of any country
determine in great measure the soul girth of its citizens. 'l'oo real
and many are the life tragedies traceable to the inefficient wife and
No subjects are receiving more attention and investigation than
ul-1ealth" and "The high cost of living." Many scientists are devoting their time to the
problem of adapting the income to human health, comfort and nutrition. Their dis-
coveries along these lines will fail of their greatest benefit to the common people unless
the housewives are taught the principles of sanitation, nutrition, and right living.
Catherine and Harriet Beecher early recognized the great need of scientific training in
household affairs. 'l'hey established schools for girls in Hartford and Cincinnati, and
in 1840 Catherine published a "Treatise on Domestic lCconomy," which was used as
atext book in girls' schools of that period. The sisters published in 1869, "Principles
of Domestic Sciencef, being na guide to the formation and maintenance ofeconomical,
healthful, beautiful, Christian homes." Q
The land grant act of 1862 was the beginning of Agricultural Colleges. 'lihey were
the first institutions to offer courses in home economics! lowa in 1869, Kansas in 1873,
and lllinoisin 1874. At about this time cooking schools were established in New
York, Boston and Philadelphia.
At first the movement met with opposition and ridicule, but it has proved its worth,
and the present time demands that training in home economics be within the reach of all.
The trouble with the servant question is due to the unskilled maid and the inefficient
mistress. It is a question which will be settled when both are trained for their places.
Homes then will be fitted with labor-saving appliances, intelligence in the kitchen and
laundry will be respected and the capable houseworker will receive the salary her skilled
labor merits, thereby placing hers on an equal with other professions.
lfew who pursue a course in the School of Agriculture will attain perfection, but
every young woman will be better fitted for the responsibilities of womanhood, what-
ever her station in life may be. l.ife will also mean more to all those with whom she
associates, not alone for the knowledge gained in practical lines, but for the high ideals
established. Thus within a decade the social service of our School will be manifest by
the invigorated country home in western New York and elsewhere.

HER MAIDEN EFFORT
fwith apologies lo Rudyard Kmlingj
A maid there was and she tried each day,
CEven as you and Il
To stir up dough in the orthodox way.
Her friends tried to tell her it didn't pay,
But she smiled as she let them have their say,
CEven as you and I.D
Oh, the hours sheid waste, and thefflours she'd waste
And the work of her head and hand,
A-stirring up dough that wouldn't come right,
But why in the world it wouldn't come right,
She did not understand.
The maid went on in her foolish pride,
Cliven as you and I,J
Though many a mess she flung aside,
Itls on the records the maiden tried,
And to her credit she never cried,
LEven as you and l.J
Oh, it isn't the fact that the dough didn't rise
That makes her blush with shame,
lt's coming to know it never could rise,
Though why at the last it never could rise
She could not understand.
A maid there was and she made a pie,
CAS you or I might do,J
She built up a crust to please the eye,
That pie would just suit, were you ready to die,
To make that pie good she surely did try,
For how to do it she knew.
Oh, ,twas not because she didn't know how
That the pie came out too thin,
'Twas only because Nl rouir to the stove
She encountered a girl who stood near the stove
And spilled some pie from the tin.
A maid there was and she slashed with vim,
CAs you or l might do,j
As she cut out some bloomers to wear to gym,
She stitched them up, this maiden slim,
She tried them on, but they didn't look trim,
Though she thought they'd possibly do.
Oh, it wasn't the work, this maid was no shirk,
That brought to her face a frown,
'Twas knowing at last the things didn't fit,
'Twas coming to know they never could Ht,
For her bloomers were upside down!
TH E STATE FARM
I-Ili legislative enactment creating the State School of Agriculture at Alfred
University, also provided for the purchase and equipment of a farm, which
was to be used in connection with the School for the purpose of teaching and
demonstrating scientific Agriculture. The farm contains about two hundred
and thirty-three acres of rolling, hilly land, and is situated on the main highway about half
a mile from the School buildings. Two thirds of the land is tillable and the balance is
pasture and timberland. On the place are two houses which have been renovated and
are being used for boys' dormitories, accommodating about forty. The two old barns
were not suitable for an up-to-date dairy, necessitating the erection of the handsome
The soil fertility had been greatly depleted and will require much time, heavy appli-
cations ofmanure, fertilizer and lime before maximum crops can be expected. A
system of drainage has been mapped out and is being installed. A young orchard,
consisting of varieties of apple, pear, plum and cherry trees, has been planted.
In order to solve some of the many problems pertaining to farming in this section of
the state, part of the farm has been set aside for experimental purposes. Experi-
ments with the following are being carried out: potatoes, oats, spring wheat, corn,
alfalfa, garden vegetables and pasture improvement. .As soon as possible other subjects
will be investigated.
The results of the experiments and farm practice are tabulated and kept on file at
the School for the use of the students in the Field crops and Farm management
departments. Such data is at the disposal of visitors and correspondents.
lt is the intention of the management that the farm shall become more and more
useful in solving the many difficult problems relating to Agriculture in this part of the
State. Thus making farming more practical and profitable, it will be an important
supplement to the class room and laboratory work, and will furthermore do its share
toward the advancement of rational country life.
FARM ER'S CLUB
TH E STATE BARN
HE NEW BARN, costing over twenty thousand dollars, is one of the most
important buildings of the School of Agriculture. This barn consists of many
divisions, the main part being one hundred twenty feet long, forty feet wide
and three stories high. Large drive-ways give access to both the first and
The first floor or basement is divided into three apartments. One is used for young
stock, pens for the bulls and breeding pens. In another part are the boiler and engines
which run the root cutter, mill and other machinery of the barn. The third apartment
is used for storing the farm tools. Under the two drive-ways leading to the second
floor are cement root cellars with a total capacity of sixteen hundred bushels.
On the second floor are the wagon and harness rooms, granaries and horse stalls,
four of which are box stalls. On this floor are kept a Percheron stallion, a bay trotting
stallion, two pairs of well-matched Percheron mares and other horses.
The third floor is used only for hay and straw and will hold about one hundred
twenty-five t0I1S. ,
On the east side of the main barn is the dairy wing, forty by seventy feet, and one
and a half storied. ln this are two rows of patented iron swing stanchions. Four
breeds of pure bred dairy cows are kept, namely, the Holstein, Ayrshire, Gurnsey, and
jersey. Litter and feed carriers are used to great advantage about the barn.
The milk produced on the farm is retailed in the village, and to facilitate this work a
first-class milk room is provided with a bottle filler, washer, sterilizer, separater and
tester. The very best attention is given to the production of sanitary milk. At the rear
of the main barn and connected with it are two round stave silos, sixteen by thirty feet.
The barn is conveniently piped with water and gas. It is ventilated by the "King"
and "Cloth" system.

FRESHM N SONG
When looking you will always final us,
Other classes stay behind us,
We are bound to lead the band,
l-'or we're the class of Freshmen grand!
When colors float high up in air,
Our banner is the brightest there,
It bears the date nineteen thirteen,
Yellow, Purple, White and Green.
Rah! Hu-ray! for the Freshmen gay.
Rah! Hu-ray, we're here to stay.
We'll be in front throughout the fray,
Freshmen-Rah! N. Y. S. A.
As we look on those who go before us,
Darkest clouds come sweeping o'er us,
For some day like Senior gray,
We'll leave our dear N. Y. S. A.
Where colors float in Alfred's air,
Our banner streams with lustre there,
One-nine-one-three is the year we go,
But while we stay, we'll face the foe.
O, 'tis great to be a Freshmen, and to know the things we do,
Know enough to bake a pan-cake, know enough to calk a shoe,
And to know that we are brighter than any other class,
And know enough for any ordinary lad or lass.
Yes 'tis great to be fresh from mother Earth's green sod,
And to see upper classmen mix cement and carry the hod,
And 'tis laughable to see them try to judge a horse or cow,
'Cause they can't tell one from t'other, and they don't know drag from plow
Noble juniors, take advice, don't be frisky, don't be gay,
Don't you know what Director tells you every other day,
He says, "Don't whistle in the hall, above all things don't be a smoker."
And then he says ftake this one home.J "Don't be the practical joker."
And then you Seniors take this hint, you know you're doing wrong
When down upon the corner and at the Post Office you throng,
Let eight o'clock each evening find you seated at your stand,
Working out the problems that are always near at hand.

N june Sth, 1911, an "auto" party consisting of Collin Armstrong,
Bertha Barney, Harold Burdick and Ann Vincent, chaperoned by
Mr. and Mrs. Ferris Whitfordfjuniors all, who were dubious of
farm life as an occupation, left Alfred for a pleasure trip. l,ouis Ball
was chauffeur. This is the story of the trip as told by one of the
Burdick, and I knew by his dejected jeans that he realized that his last chance was
gone forever, and as we whizzed away toward Andover he cried with a heart-breaking
sob, 'Annl' As we passed through the gorge south of Alfred we saw lyeslie Palmer
and Everett VanBrocklin taking a morning walk with their lady friends, Grace Stukey
and I,ena McHenry. At Andover Allison Baker and his wife were planting corn,
and, strange as it may seem, they appeared happy and contented. In Elm Valley we
passed the residence of Mr. Francisco. Edith had just taken the milk to the factory
and Wallace, as gallant as ever, was unhitching the horse for her.
Near Wellsville the chauffeur had to blow the horn hoarse and finally stop short
till we bounced again in our seats in order not to run over three boys who were pick-
ing :toner out of the road. They were l,yle and Wayne Stout and Walter Schrader.
Much to our surprise, as we came to Angelica, we saw John Phippen rzjring to run a
donkey engine. Near Fillmore we saw a man unloading manure by the 'Armstrong'
method. As we came nearer we heard him say: 'That is a splendid machine,' and
we could not mistake the deep bass voice of Harrison Weaver.
Black Creek fell to our fate next, and there we had a break-clown. This did not
delay us, however, since we happened to be only a few rods from a small blacksmith
shop where we found Allen Moot practicing 'Professor' Starr's methods of horseshoe-
ing. just before arriving at Friendship we passed Richard Smalley, looking as
pleasant as of old, taking a party of drillers out to work on his oil lease. On our way
to Nile we met Robert and William Green trying to train a colt. When the animal
saw the auto approaching he became frightened and piled 'Bob' and 'Billl into the
ditch. A little farther on the chauffeur nearly upset our machine by suddenly turning
out of the road for George Coon who was sleepily hauling gravel.
From Nile we drove to Cuba. There we found Paul Mabey and Lawrence
Wasson sporting around the hotel. They told us that Emma Cole had come to earn
her daily bread by setting type in the office of the Cuba i Patriotf On our way to
Franklinville we passed the Ferris farm. Fred and Clara were busy with the care of
fifty line 'birds' Fred was helping an old hen over the fence and Clara was poking
the chicks under. At Franklinville we noticed that a new tile drain was being put in.
Frank Maxwell and William McCluer were digging the ditches. ,
Our party reached Castile that night and were entertained with true country hos-
pitality in the orchard summer home of Arnold Jackson. The next night was spent
at Cherry Creek in the new home of Ralph Weaver. The following morning we set
out for Syracuse. Almost the first person we saw on arriving there was lfarle Madden
removing garbage :from a public park. joe Upham and Ralph Vanliuskirk were
cleaning the street pavements hard by, and all three were singing disconsolately, ' Uh,
take me back.'
Troupsburg was the next place to be honored. Here we passed the home of Foster
Cady, and saw him driving some unruly hogs- Next day we went to Cohocton and
there came upon 'l'homas Crosby, in his Sunday best, teaching a calf its first lesson on
drinking from a pail.
Passing through Hornell, we were glad to see that Gertrude Wakeman was putting
into practical operation, in the back yard, Professor Place's ideas of front yard land-
scaping. Passing the Stockwell farm in Almond, we saw Homer trying out a new auto.
He was testing it by breaking some new land with a gang plow. At Alfred Station,
we saw Harry Austin taking from a patent incubator fifty two-pound chicks, dressed
and ready for market. lillen Sherman was just coming out of Burdick's store with a
basket of fancy broilers on her arm. Fredora Burdick was on her way to the station
to board train No. 26. She wore a new creation for a hat, in the form of a half pumpkin
dressed out with a vegetable oyster plume.
The State Farm next loomed into view and we saw Harry Hopkins and Harold
Bradley attempting to plow with the bulls, under the supervision of Myron Morton.
lilbert Burdick was at work near the barn trying to rig up a biplane flying machine for
cultivating the beets. He seemed a little 'up in the air.'
At nightfall, june 9th, we arrived in the village of Alfred again, and every one of
the party declared that his doubts had vanished, and that he, as an Aggie, would go
and do likewise, and in the after days would dream about this wonderful trip before
his wide-mouthed country fire-place."

E IOR SON
In the shadow of Old Allegany's foothills
Stands the School which in our hearts is always dear.
'Tis the place that taught us how to live with purpose,
Gave ns courage to press on without a fear.
Tho we oft have made mistakes and often faltered,
Here we've learned the way to follow nature's rule,
And our lives are richer, purer, nobler, stronger,
For the lessons learned in our own Aggie School.
Now our Alma Mater as we leave thee,
Let halls re-echo with our cheer.
Thou hast been to us an inspiration,
Thou hast made the future bright and dear.
Fare thee well, beloved Alma Mater,
All thy precepts we would fain recall
Once again, hurrah for dear old
Alfred and the best of all, our Agricultural Hall.
Alma Mater, we would bravely face the future,
With our mind and muscle hardened for the fray,
Thou hast taught us to be Christ-like, strong and noble,
Thus to live our best and truest each today.
Thou hast lo'er said to us, "Keep in the sunlight."
Thy banner we will always keep unfurled,
VV e are sad, but glad today because we're going
To give thy noble message to the world.
CLASS HISTO RY
HE first Senior Class of the New York State School of Agriculture, the class
of 1911, was organized in l9U9 and had nine members. The following
were the oflicers: President, Ira F. Burdickg Vice-President William H.
jacox, jr. 5 Secretary, Miss Phebe E. Bassett, Treasurer, Miss Leona J. Place.
The thought of being the first class to graduate from this institution caused its
members to resolve that they would make a record worthy of their school.
Their support of and accomplishment in athletics and popularity in the Country
Life Club was first. Four of the nine members at various times served as president
in this club, two as secretary and one as treasurer. Also many pleasant occasions
of banquets and receptions have established a record which will be difiicult for the
other classes to emulate.
The summer vacation was very pleasantly and profitably spent by all of the members.
They returned at the beginning of the school year, October l9l0, and assumed the
dignity becoming to seniors.
Only eight of the original class returned, Miss Bassett deciding to make a practical
application of domestic science, but the original number was retained because Miss
Maude F. Coon joined our ranks and entered into the spirit of the class.
When the adieus shall be given and the class goes forth with high determination to
be happy and successful rural citizens, their mission in life will be the advancement
of permanent agriculture and the vital interests of the country home and community.

ROMINENT among the student organizations of the School of Agriculture are
the Christian Associations for young men and young women. The societies
hold weekly meetings for the purpose of Bible study and the discussion of
questions concerning student life and the uplift of religious life in the country.

l-llf Country l,ife Club is an organization of the students in the school of Agri-
culture, which has for its object mutual improvement in all things pertaining
to Agricultural education, and in all things that promote happy and useful liv-
ing on the farm and in the country.
livery student who takes ten hours or more of work in the school is expected to join
the Club and actively to promote its interests. It is the only organization in the school
where all the students, boys and girls, meet and work together. The interest and
enthusiasm which is felt toward the Club is shown by a membership of over one
hundred active members.
Regular meetings are held on every Thursday evening, when a literary program is
rendered by members of the club. ln these meetings the time belongs to the students
and they discuss problems which come up in their school work, problems arising from
work on the Farm, or some event of the day which is interesting to them.
The intelligent, practical discussion of these questions by students among themselves
gives self-confidence and breadth of view, and helps to lay the foundation for success
in any occupation or profession. Particulary is this true of Agriculture, for if boys and
girls are to go from the School to manage successfully farms of their own, as many of
them will do, they must have a training in fact and in theory, and above all in the initia-
tion of their own ideas about fact and theory. Our Country Life Club is doing more
towards this desirable consummation of education than is any single study or practicum
in the curriculum.
At the meeting of the club on january the fourteenth, Dr. Morgan presented the
club with a beautiful gavel and gavel block. The gavel was brought from Palestine
and contained five different kinds of wood-balsam, almond, locust, terebinth and
olive. The legendary significance of each was explained by him in his interesting way.
The block of native apple tree-wood was turned and dressed by Professor F. S. Place.
Discussion on the requisites of a successful life.
Professor Place: "If a man wishes to make a success in the eyes of the world, he
must keep his mind on his business at all times and keep the image of the Almighty
dollar always in his eye. Then by good management he will make a fortune, and the
world will call him a success, but there is a question whether that is real success."
Mr. jonesf' UI think that a man may be called successful and have more pleasure in
life if he has a home ofhis own, and at the same time keeps a little ahead as a nestegg.
Professor Place t"Yes, but if some setting hen gets on the nest and breaks the
nestegg and some more eggswith it, what then?"
Mr. jones,-- -
lt is reported that one of the Ag. boys escorted Maud home one night. When he
asked if he might call, she said, "You will have to ask Charlie."
Miss Vincent, in English class- "Dr. Morgan, l do not understand the last line on
Dr. Morgan' e"The class time is now up, Miss Vincent, but let me half! you a
moment after class.
Professor Places "Why are women better adapted to poultry raising than men.
Mr. Remsen ""'Because they have the motherly instinct."
Hopkins, Armstrong and Ball must have expected a cold winter as they were often
seen going home with an armful of llfoorl.
When Mr. Madden was out in the country, he came to a sign markedg "This will
take you to Syracuse." He climbed upon the top of it and sat there for two hours
and then said, ul wonder when this thing is going to start.',
Roy Trolsen-ul second the motion"
Miss Wood to Professor DuBois: Ullid you raise any pumpkins on the state
Farm this year?"
Professor DuBois: "We planted some seed but Mr. Remsen spelled the name
wrong on the label and they couldn't come up."
Some of our students' favorite songs.
Cora Regwald:-'A Can't you see I'm lonely?
Mr. Remsen:""Gee, I wish l had a girl.
Ruth Watson-' Meet me to-night in dreamland.
Henry Riehlflt looks to me like a big night to-night.
Miss Vincent--'Just some one. '
Beatrice Jeffreys' Ol you coon.
Miss Wood Three blind mice.
Leona Placef'When you and I are one.
Miss BarneyEHow would you like to like a girl like me?
Maude Conner' I've made my plans for the summer.
If you loiter in the hall ways, if you talk upon the stairs, '
If you whisper in the library, or if you sit 'in pairs,
Youlve got to be most careful and you've got to look about '
For Dr. Morgan will get you if you don't watch out.
A maiden fair in an ofllice chair attracted a Pinchen staidg
His brother then did cast his ken on a sister'in the trade.
Boynton, Boynton, well I guess,
Hels always ready for a game of chess,
He is so anxious to capture a King,
That he can not think of another thing,
One evening at Country Life, we all were much amazed
To hear John Higgins rise and say, though his mind, we think, was hazed
"The way in which debaters begin their spiel each time
Is liable to confuse them when they should be at their prime"
Says he, "The old time custom of addressing honorable judges
And opponents, makes a balk.
It should be changed to merely saying, "Madame president, may I talk?"
Now perhaps john has good reasons for his suggestion, meekly given,
But when a manls debating and his wits from him are driven
By these time honored words relating, it will serve to teach him how
To control his perturbation and do more than make a bow.

CHARLES F. BINNS, DI.7'CL'f0l'
Long ago in by-gone ages,
Down in Egypt, We are told
Men did try to save their features
In a mummy dried and oldg
But advancements made in science
Have replaced the art long lost,
And you now can save your beauty
At a very little cost. I
There are some who now can do it
But who charge a price so high
That you think you're down in Egypt
An emhalmer there to buyg
But the man who does it right,
And the man who does it cheap
ls the man named H U N TIN G,
Town of Alfred, North Main Street.

The M1091 Model 1897 .22 caliber re-
peater has always been the best small bore
rifle on the market since it was introduced.
The L13 Model
1897 lasts twice as
long as the ordinary
.22 for it is solidly
built of the best gun steel produced. The
barrel is of special gun barrel steel welded
and planished in the bar, and contains no
seams nor hard spots. It is carefully
bored and rifled deep with- the old unsur-
passed Ballard system of riding.
The breech mechanism em odies the
splendid L-gy, solid top, side ejection
and closed-in action, and is made of the
same special steel used in the ,Lak
high power rifles.
The walnut of the stock and fore-end is
air seasoned for two years in our own
sheds and a glance at the cut will 'prove
how beautifully we shape and finish these
P The rifle takes down, without tools, to
pack in a small space or for cleaning, and
the action and chamber handle .22 short,
.22 long or .22 long-rifle cartridges without
any change being necessary in the gun.
