Chorus Hail to thee, Alfred, the guide of our youth, Sweet, benign mother, all hail! Sing on thy anthems of duty and truth, May thy blest ringing music ne'er fail. Others may boast of prestige and size, Of numbers and treasure and fame, But Alfred's pride lies in manhood's clear eyes, And womanhood's high, stainless name. Old Alfred, we say, Alfred now and for aye- Kenyon and Allen and Main, . And the gallant young leader we honor today, Her honor and power maintain. X I l Organization of Alfred University N arranging the organization of Alfred University the following divisions were made: The University Corporation, the Board of Trustees, the President, the University Faculty and the College Faculty. The Alfred University Corporation consists of the trustees and individuals subscribing a hundred dollars or more to the permanent funds of Alfred University. At the annual meetings the corporation elects eleven trustees for the term of three years to take the places of the eleven whose terms of office expire at that time. The trustees are the legal directors and to them is given the final responsibility in regard to University affairs. They have the ultimate power in buying, selling or letting college property, and the erection of all buildings must have their sanction. The appointment or removal of all college officials is in their hands. The board consists of thirty-three members allotted into three equal classes-one class whose term ends at each succeeding annual election. The President of the University is elected by the Board of Trustees. In his capacity as president he has the innnediate care of the education of the students, and exercises such supervision and direction as will promote the utmost efficiency in this. He is the co-ordinator of the various units: that is, the medium between the faculty and the Board of Trustees, and between the students and the Board of Trustees. The president has the power to confer degrees. The University Faculty, elected by the Board of Trustees, includes the president, the deans, the Directors of the State Schools and the teaching force of all departments. The University Facility meets monthly during the year. The College Faculty consists of the President, the Deans, the Directors of the Ceramic School and all members of the teaching force of both College and Ceramic School. The College Faculty submits, subject to the approval of the Trustees, requirements for admission, courses of study, conditions of graduation, the nature of the degrees to be conferred, rules and methods for the conduct of educational workg and recommends to the Trustees candi- dates for degrees to be conferred. Through the President and the Deans it administers dis- cipline. lt has authority to prescribe such rules as may be expedient for the proper regulation of student publications, athletics, musical and dramatic societies, literary or residence clubs, sororities, fraternities, and all other student activities. 17 I i ORRA S.

H ALLOCK RUOOLPH DHELIA 36 I l Seniors' Retrospect OLLEGE passes quickly, and but too late does this realization come to we grave old Seniors who gaze forward hopefully and backward with longing. With one foot onthe first rung of the Ladder of Life we feel ill prepared to begin the upward climb. However, we resolve not to slip at the start, for Alfred has given us the four best years of our lives, and to falter would desecrate the memory of our Alma Mater. Graduation untrue to its name only calibrates the completion of the first step of our ascent in this struggle. We, who are the brave, the ancients, are but mere fledglings now in the vague battle which beckons to us. How happy and carefree were our college days, but we cannot go back. It is the law of progress, our only course leads us upward and onward into the future. Traditionally strong, scholastically sound and athletically loyal, the Class of 1930 has left a trail of progress in its wake. While we have gained much in our allotted four years of learn- ing, we hope that we have also aided Alfred in return. Commencement signifies a farewell, as of friends, but we are freshened by the thought that Alfred is now a part of us never to be dispossessed. 37 L- x TG, ll yi , A1 ' ...,.,.-..-...M-s '. ,,...- . ...,,.

GULLBERGH 50 I I Junior Class History ISTORY is made up of the accounts of the development of great nations. lft is peculiarly fitting that the Class of 1931 has chosen History as its theme, for its career finds an interesting parallel in the annals of the emergence and the development of present world powers. The chief difference lies in the fact that centuries are necessary to unify people into a nation, whereas, though on a smaller scale, only four brief years are allotted in which to fuse the members of a class and eventually carry them beyond the borders of their restricted world. ln the Freshman and Sophomore years a heterogeneous group of individuals, possessing widely differing personalities and ideas, is undergoing the same phase of readjustment and fusing which characterizes the separation of one group of peoples from another. Then, as cliques form, we can discern the resemblance to the careers of thc city states, the rivalries of class electionsg the vying of one group with another, finds its parallel repeatedly in the history of the races. With the Junior year the need for co-operation and consolidation grows imminent, and the class finds that the preceding years have served their purposes by inculcating in it a more or less fundamental conception of needs and purposes. .lust as in a nation faced with some need, leaders come to the fore and the situations are met adequately, so we at last realize our responsibilities and gropingly at first, but soon more in unison, we unite our forces and work toward the common end. Is it too idealistic to carry the parallel farther, and to hope that in our Senior year we will continue the advance, considering the welfare of those we leave behind and looking forward to our broader future with a spirit approaching that great ideal-Internationalism? 51 v. l I I CORRINNE L.

As we recall incidents of the past year we are, nevertheless, reminded of the many new experiences and enjoyable times which are so impressive. But now the Class of '32 moves on, forming a history of which it is proud. With recollections of our defeat in the proc fight of the previous year, we set out as Sopho- mores with determination to he victors. This achievement completed, we turned our atten- tion to the further organization of the class, establishing a firm basis on which to build. Near the close of the football season, another Frosh-Soph contest was held, this time on the gridiron. It proved less successful to us than our former conflict. However, the final score of 6-0 indicates a severe strife which confirms the fighting spirit of our classmates. Members of the class have shown themselves "full of fight, always truei' by their earnest and eager support in varsity athletics and other activities. The Class of '32 carries on with that same spirit-a spirit of loyalty to its Alma Mater. As to the future, we shall endeavor to retain and magnify this spirit, so that we may properly carry on the duties of Upper Classmen. 91 5' 'fu 'YYY '.l. 3 ,A ' - ,.1' A., ..,, --- V .

U., ,33 COLORS Navy Blue and Silver HELEN GARRISON A ROBERT COMMON I 100 l l Freshmen Class History N September 17, 1929, there came into existence on Alfrcd's campus a new group of young men and women who called themselves the Class of '33. Although their caps are still green, the members of this class are beginning to ripen into full-fledged college personalities. After they had absorbed the traditions of Alfred and had studied their "bible" thoroughly. they were ready to start out on their college career. ' The Sophomores soon burst in upon the hitherto unrullled scene. Strange noises in thc middle of the nightwarned the Upperclassmen and townspeople that the Proc hunt was being staged. The last few proclamations were searched for in vain, but this did not trouble the Optimistic Freshmen. In the cold gray dawn they downed their adversaries and, after bruising and battering them, left the Class of '32 wishing they had never met the newcomers. Along came the Frosh-Soph hop, leaving both classes in a friendly mood and looking forward to more such gala events. , .lt must be admitted that the Yearling Class rates high in scholarship. athletics and drama- tics. In spite of all predictions, the Frosh eleven crashed through with a 6 to O victory in the annual Frosh-Soph clash. Their basketball quintet proved to be the best in several years and came through the season with very few losses. Excellent varsity material was disclosed in football. cross-country and basketball. May the Saxon King, himself, rise up and shed his grace on this class which has so readily caught the "Spirit of Alfred." 101 ,Q ',,.

Although the Heersmen scored freely in two decisive wins and gained one tie, a total of six losses overshadowed many things that could have been said in their favor. llowever, several commendations remain that cannot be denied. The total of 57 points which were scored throughout the season against comparatively strong opposition shows to the Purple's ad- vantage. Comparisons of the number of first downs in each game is still more worthy of mention. In every skirmish the Saxons dis- played such strength that their opponents were always willing to admit that the 1929 Varsity eleven was bigger and better than ever. CLARKSON, 6g ALFRED, 0 . The Alfred Saxons opened their 1929 schedule with an arduous trip to Potsdam where they had high hopes of repeating their last year's 37-0 victory over the Techmen. Although the Purple did not score, Alfred was rated as a heavy favorite at the end of the iirst half, having carried the hall within Clarkson's 10-yard marker on each of four concentrated attacks. Alfred quickly threw the Engineers on the defensive in the third quarter when Servatius punted to Clarkson's 1-yard line. Steeves of Clarkson then surprised the ' W visitors by booting the ball 66 yards down the field. it Nu Alfred recovered the punt on her thirty, but soon lost the ' A . ball again on downs. Steeves then caught- the Saxons unawares with a simple off-tackle play which netted him a 35-yard gain and a touch-down. The Heersmen unable to tie the score. The Saxons made 14 first downs to Clarkson's 7, but superior punting and passing gave the game to the up-Staters. .gf A 1 ' . '4' K-3 ' I - iris Q K.

The visitors assumed the offensive after the opening kick-off and continually forced the ball down into Alfred's territory. When its punting game failed, the Purple weakened before a line-smashing attack gave the Blue a touchdown in the closing minutes of the second quarter. As the second half began, the Saxons carried the kick-off back to their 40-yard mark. A hard-hitting attack of straight old-fashioned football brought the crowd to its feet as Alfred plunged the pigskin 60 yards down the field to tie the score. Hamilton fought back, but from that point the locals decisively proved that they had the superior team. Once again, the Heersmen outscored their opponents in the num- ber of first downs, yardage gained and completed passes, but a lack of reserve strength and consistent punting paved k the way to Alfred's inability to win. ROCHESTER, 27, ALFRED, 0 The team then swung into action at Rochester against an eleven that was ranked as being far superior to the Heersmen. However, the Yellow's outstanding superiority seemed to rest in an uncanny judgment and diagnosis of the Saxons' plays. The Purple's running attack was Completely smothered throughout the game, and the forward pass seemed to be Alfred's only reliable method of advancing the ball. On the other hand, the Yellow's end runs behind, a five- ... g ,. man interference formed an offense that refused .to be X L - 4'lg fa X stopped. On the occasions that Davies' men were forced to .-3:5 mg kick, the following exchanges of punts proved to be fully K . as devasting to Alfred's game as the Yellow's running i' attack. Rochester scored in nearly every quarter, and the mm t Saxons returned home with their colors dragging in the at ' dust. 113 I l NIAGARA, 12, ALFRED, 0 Niagara brought its big, well-trained squad of huskies to Merrill Field for the next attraction. Shortly after play had begun, the overconfident invaders found the Saxons to be a hard-hitting, stubborn eleven that refused to give ground. Niagara's interference was spilled time after time, while Schneider, the visitor's backfield ace, was continually stopped for no-gain. The crowd thundered its applause to more than one Saxon as each earned his place in the Football llall of Fame by repulsing bitter attacks in an outstanding fashion. Thus the Purple held the .Roaring Cataract for over three full periods. In the last quarter, Schneider threw several long passes in a last- minute effort to score. Finally, one was completed as a visiting end snared the ball and raced 40 yards for the first score of the game. The goal was missed, but four minutes later a well-placed punt put the visitors into a scoring position again. A short, line-smashing drive soon netted Niagara her second and final score. ST. LAWRENCE, 313 ALFRED, 0 St. Lawrence was received as the next visitor and was rated equally as strong as Niagara. Alfred took the kick- off on her 38-yard mark, and in the first two plays she carried the ball only 52 yards farther down the field. However, the Scarlet held for downs, and Percy, the St. Lawrence heavy scoring star, began the slaughter, Sul- livan's machine gave the Heersmen the worst beating that Merrill Field had ever staged. The Hilltoppers scored in each period after long runs and passes had placed the ball in scoring position. Alfred's aerial game was sadly off form. St. Lawrence intercepting half as many passes as were thrown by the Purple backs. Hogan, who backed up the visiting line, crumpled the Saxons'thrusts with ease. Staiman was the most consistent ground-gainer for the Purple, while Percy and Hogan starred for the invaders. However, the defeat seemed to heighten Alfred's hopes of breaking into the credit column against Hobart on the following week-end. 4 114 l BUFFALO, 20, ALFRED, 12 Alfred followed the pigskin trail to Buffalo on the next week-end, only to find defeat at the end of her journey. After missing several chances to score against Buffalois Pony team, Staiman finally crossed the goalline as the first quarter Came to an eml. Coach Lee inserted his first-string Bulls into play at this point and the Bisons forged into a 7-6 lead before the halftime whistle sounded. IA blocked kick in the third quarter placed Alfred inl.o a scoring position again, and Servatius bucked the line for 6 more points. The Purple kicked off, and the Bisons began a spirited march into Alfred's territory. Malatowicz soon snared a pass which gave the Buffalonians their second 1- point lead. The Bulls kicked off, but soon regained posses- Sion of the ball on an exchange of punts. Then, with four minutes to play, ,Buffalo passed her way to another touch- down and a total score of 20 points. JUNIATA, 0, ALFRED, 20 The Juniata game, as a feature of the annual Homecoming Day, resulted in the Purple's most decisive victory of the season. Starting the set-to with a whirlwind attack, it was soon apparent that Alfred outclassed her opponent in every department of the game. The Heersmen scored in each of the first two periods with perfectly functioning offensives that refused to be halted. The second half was featured by brilliant backfield work, par- ticularly in running back punts behind some clever interference. The line performed admirably, with each man holding a slight edge over his opponent. The Saxons fought their way to another touchdown and a point after touchdown in the third quarter. The team tried hard for a larger score in the last canto, but the visitors held for downs three times in the shadow of their goal posts. All in all, the game served to heighten the self-confidence of both the squad and student body, and the Niagara game was looked forward to with less apprehension than before. 115 ALFRED, 193 HOBART. 7 But Alfred made up for its losses on the follow- ing week-end by swamping llobart and reversing a thirteen-year record of defeats. The Heersmen scored after the first ten minutes of play, when Staiman started around right end, reversed his held and tore 63 yards for a touchdown. Strong punting and passing by Maelfadden soon put Mooney into a position from which he could plunge across the line for a second tally. The ,Purple's final touchdown came in the third canto when a recovered fumble by Perrone paved the way to another score by Staiman. However, Alfred weakened in the last eanto when Gulick started a bombardment of long passes and end-runs which forced the Saxons into the danger zone. It was only a matter of seconds then for Galbraith to knife through tackle for a score. Staiman, playing one of the best games of his college career, was the outstanding man in the Purple backfield, while Captain Armstrong, Regan and Perrone all shone consist- ently in the line. H ALBRIGHT, 73g ALFRED, 0 The curtain game of the season resulted in Alfred's most crushing defeat in recent years at Albright College in Reading. The Purple played the Pennsylvanians on even terms in the opening stanza, but when Albright pushed its first touchdown across the line, at the end of the quarter, the Saxons completely wilted and Albright gained at will in every department of the game. Brettschneider., Grantier and Captain Armstrong were the only Alfredians who showed to any advantage against the Keystoners' heavy scoring machine. Brettschneider ran back punts for consistent gains of from 15 to 20 yards at a time, and seemed- to be the only back who could make yardage through the line. Armstrong and Grantier hit back hard among the forwards. breaking through frequently to spill both the interference and the man with the ball. STAIM A N . Captain -elect 116 J I l TW V E.

A., 57 118 I l The iSeason Review ITH the loss of Wilbur Getz, l-larold Boulton, Robert Brown and Charles May from Alfred's greatest cross-country team, and added to this the resignation of the highly successful Dr. Russell Ferguson from his coaching position, the prospects of future hill-and- dale teams at Alfred were viewed with considerable apprehension and deep gloom. It re- mained for Captain Zschiegncr and Galizio to uphold the high standards of achievement that their predecessors had raised in annexing three championships and several records. Such was the situation when the 1928 Frosh Team rallied about Coach McLeod and a captain who was virtually incapacitated because of a severe muscle strain. But these inexperienced Sophomores exceeded all expectations when they paced unchecked about the country, taking second place in the Middle Atlantics and retaining Alfred's Little Ten and Niagara A. A. U. titles. The team balance was comparatively good and its morale remained as high as of old. Thus did the rejuvenated barriers carry on and strengthen the Squad for several successful years that are sure to follow. 119 I I CORNELL, 15:, ALFRED, 40 The first meet of the season at Cornell proved to be rather disastrous, as the Purple was beaten for the first time in the history of the sport by a perfect score. The Big Red team, led by Captain Levering, placed five men across the finish line before the first Saxon, Vance, hove into view. Hughes and Graham, falling from exhaustion, left Captain Zschiegner to lead Razey, Flint and Warde to the tape in the order named. ALFRED, 15g FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL, 40 However, Coach McLeod's charges returned to Merrill Field and pointed for the first home meet against the highly touted F and M harriers. The visitors started off well, but found the hills too much for them, and Alfred's first-string quintet soon outdistanced the pack. Graham and Vance, run- ning easily, took a tie for first place in 32:13, while Flint, Warde and Burdick captured the next three places for their first perfect-score victory of the season. NEW YORK STATE CONFERENCE Then with only two dual meets under their inexperienced spikes the Purple harriers went to Hobart in defense of their Little Ten title. The team remained bunched and gave a well balanced exhibition from the start. Vance, leading the cham- pions to the tape, placed second, Graham followed to a fourth position, while Warde, Flint and Burdick completed the Pur- ple's scoring power in fifth, seventh and tenth places respec- tively. 120 l I WEST POINT, 25, ALFRED, 30 The Saxons entrained then for West Point on their Middle Atlantic trip. The Army pacers under Captain Lermond soon found that they had their work cut out for them, as the Pur- ple took off to a fast and well balanced start. Lermond won the race, but Hughes followed as a close second, and Vance and Graham came in hand in hand to tie for fourth place. Then, while the final result of the meet hung in the balance, Warde and Flint finished ninth and tenth to give the Cadets their closest meet of the season. MIDDLE ATLANTIC CONFERENCE The harriers next cleared away against a strong field in New York on the Van Cortland Park course for the big prize of the season. Manhattan, running on its home course, placed five men among the first ten to win the championship and trophy. Alfred, running second, finished Graham and Vance in a tie for ninth, while Zschiegner followed painfully to the tape for eleventh position. Then Warde and Galizio gave their Alma Mater second place in the meet by being the sixteenth and twenty-first runners to cross the line. Q NIAGARA DISTRICT A. A. U. In their final stand of the season the Varsity took off from Merrill Field against the Frosh and the Jamestown Y. M. C. A. to retain the Niagara A. A. U. championship which had been awarded to Alfred the year before. The veterans had but little difficulty in holding the lead, although Graham suffered an intestinal strain which may bar him from competition for some time to come. Hughes, Vance, Flint, Warde and Graham swept onto the field for the first five places with the Frosh close upon their heels. Jamestown took only an eighth place among the first ten men, a result which proves that Alfred's Cross-country teams will be able to successfully defend their laurels for the next two years at the least. 121 I I H SMITH D.

' The Season Review 'I' the end of the 1928-29 season 'there was considerable comment on the development of the next year's Varsity. A strong system of play and a wealth of experienced material foreeast many successful results that seemed sure to follow, but in the course of a year most of this patter was forgotten and only half-hearted hopes were held hy the Purple followers for a winning court combination. W Results were destined to follow. however, although the Varsity took off to a had start against Syracuse's wonder five and in the long western trip. But as soon as the team returned home for competition that was rated in its own class, the student hody and alunmi alike were fired with enthusiasm at the sight of a powerful Purple maehine, creating Alfred's most impressive court reeord in the past ten years. Rochester, former Conference title-holders, twiee fell hefore the lleersmen's onslaught. while lflalnilton, Clarkson, llohart and Niagara, all erstwhile Nelneses, were powerless to halt this Saxon advance. St. Lawrence, the only team to best Buffalo, was the first Confer- ence team to ret.ard this progress in an extra period of the last game on the Saxon's tedious northern trip. Then Buffalo, sporting one of her strongest outfits, also outclassed the Purple in a decisive out-of-town struggle for the Little Ten Championship. A 123 I I The Heersmen then turned their barrage against non-conference teams with a splendid chance in view of a victory against Cornell at Ithaca. St. Stephens, Cortland Normal, and the Ithaca School of Physical Education all came and left their scalps, hut Ortner's Big lied five at Cornell caught Alfred off-form in a listless encounter. The conquerors of Penn gained but little glory in their victory as the Saxons missed over halfof their fouls and muffed countless clear shots under the basket. Latronica found Coach lleers' type of play greatly to his liking 4 and featured all through the season as high scorer, finally gaining a representation for Alfred on the mythical All-Conference Team. l-lis running mate, Fenner, followed elose upon his heels as a scorer MCGRAW, Captain and played by far the most consistent game of the five. MacFadden and Captain McGraw paired well together as forwards, acting as constant threats particularly under their basket. The work of Steel Ccaptain-electl also deserves much credit both from a defensive as well as from an offensive point of view. Then, Wenger and Webster, as substitutes, put more fight into the team and pulled more than one game out of the fire. All in all, the perfection of this year's Varsity, though somewhat belated, kept the Purple's home record clean for the second consecutive season and produced a quintet that will be remembered for some time to come. The graduation of Captain McGraw, Latronica, Fenner and Fabianic will naturally sap the Varsity's strength considerably, but with the return of Kickham, Steele, Wenger, Webster and MacFadden a nucleus should be formed that will be above the average for the 1930-31 season. But little can be judged concretely in regard to first-string material from McLane's Frosh outfit, though it is a certainty that Coach Gallo- way will not he handicapped by a dearth of material. 4, , -.... -4 ,- .. 4 STEELE.

In a brilliant siege the Saxons started early in the spring at the famous Penn Relays with a record-breaking performance that, once begun, flourished throughout the Purple's schedule. Six college records fell as well as another Middle Atlantics mark under the flying spikes of the Little Ten Conference Champions. Except for the Century Dash, the Varsity was repre- sented by a record-bearer in nearly every other event. So strong was this squad that the eight-man team which sported the Purple at the Middle Atlantics meet was recognized by more than one sports writer as "the best small college team in the East." The 'team's outstanding feature may be found in the annual Middle Atlantics at Haver- ford when all but one of Alfred's color-bearers scored a total of six first places, and four others annexed a score within three points of the winner. Huge twenty-man teams stood about the field in awe at the sight of a mere patrol of Saxons hurrying from one part of the field to the other to pile up one point after another. But to Wilbur Getz goes the greatest individual honor that a Saxon has ever achieved. In competition with America's best collegiate milers the Alfred star raced to a national cham- pionship in the unusually fast time of 4:19.9 sec. This race fell in the last meet of his college career, and is a fitting conclusion to a brilliant track and cross-country record that lasted through four full years.

Review of the Season MCLANEQS grapplers were strengthened by the presence of eleven letter-men on the squad last fall, and many predicted that the best team ever to grace the Purple mat would sweep through an eventful and highly successful season. However, a lack of interest soon became apparent and, later, injuries and ineligibility sapped the strength of the squad with almost fatal results. Thus, the matmen gained three glorious victories and dropped four hard-fought battles in wrestling's most disappointing season. Alfredis outstanding meets fell on her southern trip to Lancaster and Philadelphia, when the Purple battled brilliantly against Franklin and lVlarshall's undefeated warriors. Against the Quakers at Penn the final result was debatable, although the score was decided in favor of the Red and Blue. However, the matmen regained their prestige when, with only two regulars competing, they downed C. C. N. Y. by a 20-14 score in the most colorful meet of the season. Captain Hambel, D'Elia Cex-captainj and Sanchez will be lost to next yearis team by graduation. But with the prospects of twelve experienced wrestlers returning to the fold next fall, a successful season becomes a near certainty. V 131 J I I Review of the Tennis Season ENNIS, which has been on the decline for the past three years, finally reached its lowest ebb last spring. Two matches, both with Mansfield, comprised the schedules and both resulted in scoreless defeats for the Purple. Arrangements were made for members of the team to compete in a tourney at Union. but all of the racket-wielders declined to n1ake the trip. In the first meet at Alfred, two likely-looking Freshmen and two Sophomores took the courts. The team appeared to be strong, but the handful of spectators soon became dis- illusioned. A lack of practice was easily evident and none of the Saxon strokes even approached being perfected. The fact that the Varsity was unable to score against a mediocre team was ample evidence that the Purple racketeers were far from being in their best form. The team then resolved to correct and improve the existing evils and shortcomings of its game before the return match at Mansfield, but crowded courts and adverse weather conditions kept the squad off-form until the following meet. It is hoped that with a fuller schedule and better practicing conditions, the brand of Varsity tennis at Alfred will improve. Rumor has it that supervised coaching is to be pro- vided for the perfection ofstrokes and for thc improvement of team play. 132 I I The Big Three 1925-1929 I-IESE three men have done more for their college as a trio than any other group of athletes Tthat have claimed Alfred as their Alma Mater. One, Dean Fredericks, starred as captain of football. He further glorified his career as the high-scorer in football, wrestling and track, leaving a new college track record in his wake. To another, Wilbur Getz, fell the combination of a cross-country captaincy and a brilliant four-year performance in track, which finally culminated in a national championship as a miler. The acknowledgment of the highest honor that an Alfredian can achieve, the Loyalty Medal, was in itself an indication of his status on the campus. Daniel Klinger, as the third, led the greatest track team that ever graced the cinders of Merrill Field. His reputation as a pole-vaulter and as a heavy scorer in all the field events aided greatly in making his team the best small college club in the East. Fouryears of hard- fought football also proved his many-sided capabilities. In these three men were found scholarship, loyalty, and a leadership that raised Alfred to a sectional-even national-prominence. These men were true in every respect-true to Alfred, true to their ideals and ambitions, true to themselves. In the name of Alfred Univer- sity one thought symbolically of The Big Three-may they never vanish from our memories. 133 li.:-1 I I GEORGE W. HILL JAMES A.

While the team appeared to be weak at times, the work of an individual few promised much for the future as well as emphasizing the fact that football and gridiron material is improving at Alfred. The first game of the season against Hornell saw the Frosh confused with their signals and plays, depending upon bulk rather than upon speed and technique for their yardage. Fol- lowing a 13-0 defeat, the Frosh piled up two touchdowns against Salamanca, only to bc out smarted by Reach, the opposing fullback, and Moore's light but heady ends. Again, at Hobart, the Yearlings suffered another 13-12 defeat, but tl1e first-year men came into their own at Rochester when they outfought the Kodak City Frosh by a 6-0 margin. In Captain Murray the 'Fresh found a rugged, fast end who was easily the high-scorer of the team. As backfield men, Merck and Barton gave a good account of themselves in every play, while Anderson and Goldberg gave some very creditable performances in the line. 135 I l SEYMOUR C. SNELI. JAMES A.

W, . Y ' .M Review of the Season 1929-1930 PON being faced with the longest and hardest schedule that Freshmen basketeers have U ever attempted, fortune favored the Yearlings with the smoothest quintet in recent years. The fact that the Frosh dropped only two of their eleven games speaks well for their efforts, but a view of their opposition credits them with far more than ordinary recognition. The season began auspiciously with a team that showed midseason form from the start. Every position seemed to be unusually strong, and McLane's substitutes seldom failed him. However, with an unbroken string of eight victories to their credit the Yearlings finally gave way to the slump that is always bound to come, wilting before Geneseo in a poorly-played 22-17 game. Then ineligibility and injuries began to take their usual toll, and all indications pointed toward a gloomy ending for the Freshmen, but a return game at Geneseo unexpectedly put them on a clean slate againgan achievement which they maintained until the final game on the schedule with Rochester Business Institute. The game was played in the Kodak City Armory, and the glass backboards proved to be a big disadvantage. Nevertheless, .the game was closely contested and but little fault can be found with an otherwise perfect season. 137 l I Freshman Track 1929 SEASON IN four dual meets, the Class of 1932 kept pace with the Varsity tracksters in the matter of victories, while the Frosh relay team established its reputation of being the fastest Year- ling quartet in recent years. After traveling the familiar trail to llornell, the Frosh dropped their first meet of the ,sea- son by a 55M-39V2 score. Despite the facts that the relay team had gone to the Middle Atlantics and that the weightmen had as yet failed to materialize, the Yearlings showed a marked superiority in the track events, with "Ken', Robinson starring as the individual high-scorer of the meet. Then, with a complete, well-balanced aggregation, the Frosh re- turned to Merrill Field to trounce Ilornell to the tune of 78-44. Against Smethport, the Freshmen met a fast-stepping outfit which matched their strides until the score was practically tied at the beginning of the last event-the half-mile relay. The strong combination of Robinson, B. Chubb, McConnell and Graham then proved its worth and decided the meet in favor of the collegians-59-53. The last meet of the season with Cook Academy also saw the relay team snatch a 59-54 victory out of the fire as Mc- Connell bested the Prepsters 440-yard-dash record by some spectacular running. 138 I V Interscholastics cnoss coUNTRY UNDEIK the management of Don C. Lynn the largest cross-country field in Alfrcd's inter- scholastic history faced the starter's gun last fall. Half way around the course it became noticeable that the Naples entries seemed very well balanced. Sandusky of Erie Academy and Jones of Rochester West High, however, placed first and second before the leading Naples harrier touched Merrill Field. However, Naples team balance won the meet as the Green and White finished in fourth, thirteenth, fifteenth, twentieth and twenty-first places. Buffalo East finished second and Erie Academy followed in third. BASKETBALL THE second interscholastic tournament under Seymour Snell compared favorably with the growth of the rest of the interscholastic program. Hornell and Bath, deadly rivals, met in an exciting and fully as appropriate struggle for the final game in the tourney. Bath took the trophy after a 24-22 battle, and. Salamanca defeated Little Valley for the Cattaraugus County title in the consolation preliminary to the final. TRACK FIVE interscholastic records were broken last spring as three hundred fifty athletes from thirty-two schools competed for the interscholastic trophy. However, Schenectady easily outscored the pack in piling up a total of 42M points. Buffalo Lafayette was her nearest competitor with only 28 to her credit. Elliot of Rochester Monroe was rated as high-scorer by running up 8M points in three events. The meet was well handled under the direction of Alfred Voorhies, surpassing all other meets of its kind in the State in its unusually large size. 139 l l . Intramural Cross Country THE Russell S. Ferguson Intramural Cross Country Plaque was put up for competition for the fourth time last fall. Burdick Hall in defense of its title was easily considered to be the 1929 winner. However, Klan Alpine, which had already gained two legs on the prize, went out to regain its possession, while Kappa Psi Upsilon, the runner-up in the 1928 race, expected to make a strong bid for first place. Nevertheless, it soon became apparent that the two fraternities were to be outclassed for another year as the Burdick Hall Frosh trio jumped off to a fast start and left the pack well outdistanced at the top of the first hill. The fight then began for second place, and soon con- dition began to.tell as Kappa Psi left Klan Alpine in the background. "Pat', Hughes, a harrier of Varsity caliber, led his Burdick Hall teammates to the tape in comparatively fast time for an intramural meet. The llall team had captured the necessary first three places before the first Kappa Psi entry hove onto Merrill Field. Both Burdick Hall and Klan Alpine now have two of the necessary four victories required for permanent possession of the plaque. 140 Intramural Basketball , 1929-1930 AFTER Theta Kappa Nu had won the lntramural Basketball Trophy the year before, Delta Sigma Phi set out to regain her laurels, only to find her schedule filled with the strongest array of basketball opponents in intramural history. Overcoming a defeat at the hands of Klan Alpine, she finally defeated the Smith Club for the championship of the first half of the league struggle. The Agricultural School, which had entered a first-class team into the second half of the fray, although losing to the Klan Alpine Nemesis, soon led the League "B" teams with a long string of victories. This team entered the championship tilt as heavy favorites over Delta Sigma Phi. Delta Sig started fast and drew away to a 7-1 lead in a rough-and-ready first quarter. The Aggies height and strength then began to assert themselves and the farmers repeatedly brought their score within one or two points of the leaders. llowever, the superior speed of the collegians finally won for Delta Sig, 23-20, and temporary possession of the trophy goes to that fraternity for another year. 141 I I 9 TTT TTT i The Cheer Leaders 1929-1930 CHEER LEADING- was definitely organized on a firm basis four years ago, but the results were slow in coming. Last year, under the leadership of Arnold Bookhiem, '29, the stentorian art reached its greatest heights in Alfred. However, the Fall of the 1929-30 season found the cheer leaders without a director but with a strong nucleus which had been developed during the preceding year. The Athletic Governing Board finally voted general supervisory powers to Fran Greene, '30, and a rapid reorganization of the squad soon took place. The response. was hearty, as the cheer leaders' united forces brought reviving displays of school spirit from the student body. Peppy mass meetings were held. new yells were practiced and clever stunts and formations were introduced between the halves of home football games. The Varsity teams received ample support, although a custom of "booing" spread which could not be discouraged. The group will be largely depleted, due to the graduation of Fran Rogers and F ran Greene. Nevertheless, a strong, experienced organization still remains, with Frieda Smigrod, Shorty McCourt, Betty Rogers and Bud Duke still in the ranks. 142 I I i SOCCER V BASKETBALL TRACK Girls' Athletics 1929-1930 WITHIN the past year, girls' athletics have been revived, first with interclass and intra- mural contests and only recently with out-of-town games. This program has aided largely in displacing the long-felt problem of granting the college women something in return for their athletic bills. 1 The Interclass Track Meet in the spring of 1929 resulted in a landslide for the Class of '32, due mostly to the running of Miss VanDuyne in the sprints and to E. Rogers in the distances. F. Rogers, '30, however, was the individual high-scorer of the meet. Considerable interest was aroused in the meet and interclass rivalries soon became apparent. Interclass soccer became the rage in the fall and once more the Sophomores carried off the laurels. A three-game series was held, the first match resulting in a 1-1 tie. However, the tide turned in favor of ,32 on the following week when a 2-1 game shifted the match and title to the Sophs. ' - Not being content with their present laurels, the Sophomores even more convincingly laid claim to the Interclass Basketball Championship by dint of an undefeated season of interclass competition. The Frosh, by virtue of a victory over the Seniors, placed second in the league standing, while the wholly unsuccessful Juniors ranked fourth and last. 143 ' I 3 L1 ' QRCANIDENS lr I 1 Klan Alpine JAN ,Jamie ' vw N Founded 1919 Norlhro 1, Guintvr, Gullhcrg, Delaney, S wlil, Clement Sadler, liuyca, Chubb, Wright, Morse, Fllint, Durant McConnell.

The requirements for membership are predicted upon scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities and outstanding personal character. The organization has developed an annual, definitely construc- tive program. lt assumes responsibility for the presentation of the Loyalty Medal, for the conduction of the Annual Commencement Dance and for certain phases of the work of the Interseholastie Loc Armstrong Bureau as well as the newly-organized Students' Athletic Fund. 160 I I Rogers, Ploetz, Mills, Hallock, Blackmore Phi Sigma Gamma OFFICERS HZARRIETTE J.

Its motto is "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Its particular purpose is to send out from institutions of higher learning young men and women imbued with social idealism, trained in scientific thought, and encouraged to help others to be scientific in their thinking on social prohlems. While a comparatively young society it already includes in its membership thousands of men and women outstanding in many fields of activity. Witli its emphasis upon scholarship, it aims to occupy a place in the field of social sciences comparable to that of Phi Beta Kappa in the literary field and Sigma in that of natural sciences. 163 John l lamhcl .l I I Vaneria, Perry, Eller Rothstein, Ryno, Colton, Hntc linson, Gullbergh, Prof. Ross Blackmore, Harding, Prof. Bond, Hamilton, Young Alfred Biological Society OFFICERS IRWIN J.

Burdick, under whose careful guidance and surveil- lance the society has attained its present status on the campus. The aim of the organization is to create an interest in those sub- jects which involve the biological world, and to keep abreast of the new biological discoveries and researches. 4 ' The society develops a constructive program which it carries out each year. This year a series of well planned lectures are to be presentedg some of which may be open to the students in general. Candidates for membership must show special aptitude for and interest in biological subjectsg they must have a scholarship of 1, ZZ. and an average of B for at least three semesters ofa biological course. 164- McGraw, Smith, Fabianic, Brown, Karthauscr, Armstrong Gallup, Prof. Binns, Bassett, Prof. Ambcrg, Burdick Beta Pi Kappa OFFICERS ROBERT B. BASSETT , . DON C. LYNN . , WILLIAM L. FABIANIC . JOHN L. GALLUI' . HE National Ceramic Engineering Fraternity, ,Beta Pi Kappa, was established at Alfred in 1928, 'thus doing away with the local engineering fraternity of Delta Pi Alpha. The membership of Beta Pi Kappa is open to Upperclass engineers who have shown interest and ability in the ceramic line. Prospective members are judged according to their scholarship, interest and character. The purpose of Beta Pi Kappa is to promote high character, honor and scholastic ability among its members, and to initiate such achievements in the minds of the underclass men. The frater- nity serves to promote closer 'ties of friendship among ceramic students of Alfred and other ceramic schools and to bind more closely together the graduate and undergraduate engineers. 165 .

This organization. the Student Branch of the American Ceramic Society, was reorganized in the Fall of 1929. Its progress was largely advanced by the formation of an Alumni Association. Menlbersliip in the society is limited to ceramic engineers. no scholarship being required. It meets twice each month, at which time its value and purpose is realized from lectures and films. Its aims are to further ceramic knowledge among the engineers, to create outside interest in the school and tobring into closer contact its members. ' With the increasing demands of the ceramic industry comes an increasing demand for engineers, and with these added men the power of the organization will ever increase and become an instru- ment whereby its members will not only be helped to take their places in the field but will have recollections of their association with their fellow men. 166 I I Ceramic Guild OFFICERS ALFRED A. TITSWORTH . . . FERNE R. GREENE THEORA M. WEISHAN MARY B. ALLEN ..... . HE Ceramic Guild was established in 1917 for the purpose of stimulating and encouraging an excellence in art. The organiza- tion was based on the medieval guilds from which originated its characteristic traditions and practices. The older structure of the Guild has, through the combined efforts of the lll0St interested members, been revised. A broader purpose has been set forth to attain an excellence and perfection in ceramic art as a practical craft. ,lourneymen are now open to honors which are higher and mean more than they have before. Thus they have an opportunity to put into practice the ceramic theory and craftsmanship attained in their classwork. Social times come to Guild members in the form of suppers, teas. and dances, Christmas festivities, commencement exhibitions and sales. It is the hope of the Guild always to further the one objectiveg of unifying the department through working together. 167 . President Vice-President f . Treasurer . Secretary Alfred A.

' H 168 f -1 Armstrong, Prof. Conroe, Dean Norwood Clifford, llambel, Dean Degon Student Life Committee HE Student Life Committee was organized in the Spring of 1927 to comply with a growing sentiment toward greater student participation in the formation and execution of social policies. It was believed that such a movement would be an extension of student government and tend to facilitate the solution of social problems by eliciting suggestions from the student body and the faculty. The committee was therefore composed of representatives of each group and its functions were to include the conciliation of possible conflicting points of view, propose constructive ideas for the general social good and constitute one more link in the chain of harmonizing forces then existent. In May, 1929, the Student Life Committee brought its first year of activity to a successful close. Later in the month the membership of the committee for the ensuing year were duly elected by both the student body and the faculty. The students chose Professors Conroe and Harris as their representatives from the faculty and Leland Armstrong and John Hambel from among themselves. The faculty, on the other hand, selected Professor Degen and Doc- tor Norwood, and from the student body, Miss Annette Clifford. The preliminary duties of the organization were attended during the first meeting of the committee called to order by Dean Norwood early in October. At this meeting, Miss Clifford was chosen secretaryg John Hambel elected chairman, and the personnel of the subcommittee in charge of the social calendar selected. After considerable discussion of the social situation, the committee adopted a tentative policy subject to the changes that new conditions might make possible. 169 , ..,, , A , , W l 1 A' W ! , I 1 W ,N ,,,,,,c,,s l ll xx!

The executive and judicial power of the organization is vested in a council representing every group of girls on tl1e campus. The merit system has been introduced whereby an extra night for entertaining is granted if no rules have been broken by the unit. lt is hoped to create a new spirit of personal responsibility. and to mold public opinion in the direction of obeying the spirit as well as the letter ofthe law.

Treasurer HE Student Senate, an executive body representing the Students Association of Alfred University, consists of seven members elected by the student body and a president elected by the senate. The purpose of this organization is to deal with the violation of class rules and, in addition, it performs its duty of strengthening and enforcing the honor system. This body has been organized to control all matters relating to campus regulations, to have charge of all college electionsg to preserve the traditions of Alfred. The senate represents student sentiment and co-operates with the faculty in matters pertaining to student life and welfare. This organization, established in May, 1906, has assisted in main- taining the lofty standards of Alfred and has proven itselfto be essential in the operation of campus law enforcement. 171 .lack lf.

The present council is composed of three delegates from each of the member fraternities. This body meets regularly once a month to discuss interfraternity matters. The need of some sort of pledging regulations was felt from the first. In 19241, a system evolved whereby Freshmen should not be pledged until they had attended Alfred for a period of nine wceksg later, the time was extended to a full semester. For various reasons this plan was found objectionable. Finally the present system was adopted, which provides that all pledging shall be completed before Christmas vacation. This system is not entirely satisfactory and some changes are sure to be made by next pledging season. The organization now holds a position of vital importance in I maintaining and initiating constructive working principles for H campus' harmony. William ll.

URING the school year of 1923-24. the Women's lnterfraternity Council was formed in order to institute rules for rushing and to form an ollieial bond between the different groups. Two members were elected from each house to serve a period of two years each and they discussed and formulated the matters in question. This year the system of Preferential Bidding has been adopted in place of the old method where each sorority sends out its own hids. The new system which is used in most colleges is to he followed for this year, at the end of which time a vote will he taken in order to decide whether or not it will he permanently accepted. 173 S ecrelary Frances ll. Rogers . i V . , ...l r W xx! Bottum, Daniels, Sadler Department of Campus Duties B RUCE I". DAN I ELS ....,.. Administrator HE De Jartment of Campus Duties was organized for the purpose of giving a fair distribu- tion o campus work to the Freshmen. Until the year 1925-26 the work done by the Freshmen was assigned in a rather haphazard manner. Some means of systcmatizing the work was necessary and the solution was found by organizing the Department of Freshmen Duties. The department consists of a Senior, the Administrator and two ,lunior Assistants. The Administrator oversees the carrying out of the various tasks assigned. The assistants aid him in this work and become as familiar with the operation of the office as possible. The men assigned work are given twenty-four hours' notice with the time, place and date ofthe same. The Student Senate has direct jurisdiction over all actions of the department and serves as a check on the organization. Last year the burning of Babcock llall where the ollice was located left the department with no headquarters, but an agree- ment was reached with the lflditor of the lf.-KNAKADEA whereby the .-3... KANAKADEA office in Kenyon llall was shared with the department. Permanent oflice facilities will be provided for in one of the college buildings next year.

The court, although open to criticism, has proven itself to be a very eflicient organization. Maintaining respect in the eyes of the unflerclassmen, it promises to thrive and to forever replace insiflious methods of past years. The court consists of a -Senior judge, two Junior Attorneys, one .lunior Clerk and twelve. Sophomore jurors. Underclass male offenders violating rules or traditions are tried by the court and if found guilty are prosecuted by suitable and just punishment. lt has always been the aim of this body to humiliate the guilty by public ridicule rather than by corporal punishment which is resorted to, however, in extreme cases. 175 Robert Hassett i,,-. 1 -W-f Xa tx.

It was sold to the school district in 1868 and moved down to the present site of Kanakadea Hall and used as a schoolhouse. But its "moving down" propensities had not disappeared, for it was acquired by a private individual and moved still farther down the hill and fitted up as a hotel. In 1896 the owner, Mr. William C. Burdick, allowed the University to use the building as a dormitory, later, his heirs gave it to the school. 178 The Brick OFFICERS HELEN PIAMMOND . . . . President 'RUTH HUNTING . . .

In its varied capacities it has served not only as a girls' dorm, hut at one time it was a dorm for both boys and girls, and during the war it was used as a barracks. The Brick plays an important part in the college life of every girl in Alfred, for she is sure to carry away from it many pleasant memories. Some of these are surely the result of attending a "Brick Prom," which is the hig event of the year. 179 xx' i H1-len Hammond I I Steele, Snell, Hassett, Ulander., ZSCllll'gll1'l' The Spiked Shoe 0I+'l"lCl+IRS lionmm' liASSl5'l"l' . . . . .

The spirit of the fraternity spread rapidly. and at present there are over forty chapters in the'leading universities. Alfred University, after winning a plaee among the hetter sehools having good track teams, was granted a charter and thus the lota Chapter was organized' at Alfred in 1925.

The club grants honorary membership to those who have not won a Varsity "A" but who are especially interested in the athletic welfare of the University. lts duties consist of publishing the various athletic programs for the different sports. lt advertises Alfred to the high-school students through an interscholastic track and field meet, cross-country meet and a basketball tournament each year. ln addition, it maintains an information bureau which attempts to solve the problem of the high-school athlete through various publications of athletic importance.

Sadler Business Mftliagrfr Mfllldgillg Editor The Fiat Lux N the seventeen short years of its existence, the Fiat Lux has paralleled the progress of its Alma Mater, struggling from a humble conception through the inefliciency and lack of organization which must characterize any new project. When, in 1913, the enterprise was bravely launched on the sea of extra-curricular activity, the voluntary subscriptions received from the small student body were its only means of support, with the result that subsequent years assumed discouraging aspects until the Board of Trustees consented to include the yearly fee in the college term bill. The prestige and financial footing gained from this move placed the Alfred University weekly publication in a position to concentrate on the problem of internal improvements. During the pastfour years significant changes have been made in the way of adapting the paper to commercial standards. With the formation of an editorial staff, in 1927, Harold E. Alsworth gave the movement impetus which carried overyinto the following year when Donald F. Pruden completed the undertaking, and created for the journal an enviable reputa- tion for literary worth and editorial achievement. The succeeding year witnessed the estab- lishment of a firm business foundation under the able leadership of I-1. Warner Waid. To adhere to a high literary standard and a representative viewpoint and to conclude the responsibility of systematizing departments by the adoption of an efiicient Constitution have been the objectives sought by the staff of 1929-1930. The introduction of added per- sonal participation and competition has combined with greater opportunities in the business field to make of the Fiat Lux one of the most active and most worth while of organizations. 184 Guintcr, Gullhcrgll.

MIIIKS, '31 185 I I INCE history is the record of the achievements of time, the l Class of 1931 deemed it a necessity to add their milestone to the continuous making of history for Alfred in the form of the Annual KANAKADEA. History was chosen as a theme because it associates itself with an individual on the campus whose past years of service for X., Alfred have been not only in teaching but in making history. His has been a service so valuable and so great that only a small amount of appreciation can be shown in dedicating this twenty- fifth volume of the KANAKADEA to this worthy man-Dean J. Nelson Norwood. In this twenty-fifth edition, color has been introduced for the first time. We hope that this first attempt will be carried out in a larger and more elaborate way in the following years. An im- provement over its predecessors should be noticeable in each Annualg the staff of 1931 feel that although they had a high standard set in the form of the 1930 Annual, they have contributed a new element to the book through the presence of the various colored pages. . For this reason the staff owes Professor Harder special thanks for his guidance of the art work of the 1931 KANAKADEA. Throughout our feature section, various pages of humor have been portrayed. In these pages personal remarks and pictures have been made of different members of the faculty and student body, and we hope that none of these will be taken for more than what they represent --a friendly joke. The severe critics of this book are asked to consider the time, approximately ten months, allotted for the publishing of it. With this in mind we hope the readers will overlook some of the minor mistakes and discrepancies which, according to the law of aver- ages, must appear. The Staff of the 1931 IQANAKADEA wishes to heartily thank all Alfredians who have assisted in the production of this year-book and to pass on a word of caution culled from experiences not yet cold. The future annuals may be greatly improved if all group pictures, that are at present organized, be taken out of doors and in the spring of the year when the campus is in the full glory of its blooming foliage. This will give to the KANAKADEAS of the future the clear-cut and well balanced pictures which are ' the sine qua non of any and every first class annual.

I ' The Footlight Club S one ofthe oldest and most active organizations on the campus, the Footlight Club has carried on progressive interest in play production since the year 1905. The club's greatest aims are to furnish the students with an outlet for dramatic talent and good entertainment. Limited memhership restricts the personnel to those upperclassmen who have shown talent or capability in technical production of plays. Judgment of such abilities is hased on the results of the Frosh-Soph plays and the productions given throughout the year. - Witli the aid ol' such experienced professors as Mr. Burditt, the club has accomplished some worth while performances. Four one-act-plays, "Suppressed Desires," "The lildestf' "Enter the Hero," and "The Valiantf' which were produced in the spring were acclaimed with much favorahle comment. The Commence- ment production, "The Servant in the House," was also commended for excellent presentation. The fall program was initiated hy the production of "The Brat." Provision has been made for at least three other programs to he I. Colton offered this year. 188 I V IRWIN COHON .

Commencement activities formally opened on Saturday morning, .June 8th, when Rev. F. E. Lentz of the Christian Temple at Wellsville, N. Y., spoke before the Christian Associa- 'tions on the subject, "Christianity, the Religion of Youthf, The address was appropriate to the occasion, excellently delivered and very well received. 011 Saturday evening. music lovers enjoyed the annual concert given by the University Department of Music at Alumni Hall. The program was varied, including vocal selections and piano renditions, and appealing to the diversity of temperaments in the audience. The Baccalaureate Sermon was delivered, Sunday evening, by President B. C. Davis to an appreciative congregation. The theme of this impressive sermon was, "Life,s Work and Its Measure," a theme Iittingly timed for those standing upon the threshold of life. Monday evening, the lfootlight Club presented "The Servant in the llousef' a play which excited unusual interest and comment on the campus. lt was a drama set in the present day, written in live acts, portraying life in a typical linglishi vicarage into which had come a strange and masterful character. The production was a credit to the actors and to the direc- tor, llarriet Pawley. Class Day lixercises were held on Tuesday afternoon in Alumni 'Hall and on the campus in front of the library. Members of the Senior Class presented a one-act play entitled "Aria da Capo," by lidna St. Vincent Milay. which was skillfully enacted and greatly enjoyed. The class gift, proffered by the Senior president, Gordon li. Lewis. was a sum of money, con- sidered by the Seniors to be more useful to the college at that time than a specific gift. The Senior Mantle was next passed on to Harriette ,l. Mills, president. representing the Class of 1930, -by Claricc M. Thomas. ex-president, representing the Class of 1929. Carrying out an l92 I I old tradition, the class thcn marched to the library , where the class ivy was planted and where Bernice l Sheetz delivered the flvy Oration. The Annual Alumni 'Banquet was held Tuesday evening at The Brick. The reunion of old classmates, tl1e meeting of former underclassmen and upper- classmen and tl1e making of acquaintances between those to whom Commencement Exercises were a memory and those to whom these exercises were a unique experience, was unusually enjoyable because of the return of a large number of alumni. Wcdnesclay morning brought the grand climax of .ii ' I i V . .. l the week, with the formal conferring of degrees upon the Seniors and upon more experienced friends of Alfred. The academic procession began the day to the strains of the "Grand March" from Aida by Verdi. The Senior Oration, a cleverly written and well-read paper entitled., "Wiatr Guiltf' was presented by John Enfield Leach, class orator, elected as is customarytby the Senior Class and the faculty, jointly. Senior and honorary degrees were conferred: Doctor of Science upon Nathan E. Lewis, Doctor of Seienee upon George Addison Bole, and Doctor of Law upon Charles Thomas Gwynne. The solemn occasion was impressively closed by the singing of the Alma Mater, terminating the college life of one more class of Seniors and sending them on their way to tread the road of life. ' 193 I l Men's Loyalty Medal EVERY year the student body of Alfred choose a man from the Senior Class who has made himself worthy by his activities during his college career to be awarded the Loyalty Medal., but not often do we have the opportunity of choosing a man whom we may thus honor for more than local celebrity. Wilbur C. Getz, selected last year as the recipient of the Loyalty Medal presented by Phi Psi Omega fthe men's honorary fraternity of Alfredj, lent national distinction to his college by winning the national championship in the mile event at Chicago, last spring. Although somewhat retiring, socially, he is of fine character, an excellent craftsman and a true 'athlete. He showed his willingness to co-operate by his activities in the Kappa Psi Upsilon fraternity and on the KANAKADEA staff. On the Cross Country team each of his four years in college, as its captain his Senior year, and on the track team for three years, he showed his most brilliant accomplishments. His membership in the Varsity "A" Club and in the Spiked Shoe stamped him as popular among all athletes. To Wilbur C. Getz, a good scholar and a well-known runner, we gave the 1929 Men's Loyalty Medal. 194 J I l Women's Loyalty Medal CARRYING on a one-year-old tradition, Phi Sigma Gamma fwomen's honorary fraternityl awarded a Loyalty Medal to Clarice M. Thomas, the Senior woman whom the student body elected as leading her class in character and college loyalty. A woman successful in many lines of activity, she was unfailing in directing her energies into many paths, into athletics., scholarship, art and sociability. Her scholastic achievements were recognized by her membership in Eta Mu Alpha, her artistic accomplishments by her membership and secretaryship in the Ceramic Guild. Athletically, she played no mean part in the gym and on the tennis court, as captain of class basketball for two years, as captain of tennis for one year and as assistant physical director for one year. As a member of Theta Theta Chi sorority and as its chaplain and treasurer successively, as'President of Phi Sigma Gamma, as President of Junior Class, as a member of the Athletic Association, of the Athletic Governing Board and of the Student Life Com- mittee, Clarice Thomas showed her executive powers and her willingness to serve in any capacity. A woman of these achievements, of high character and lovable nature., a woman loved and respected by all on the Alfred campus, Clarice M. Thomas, we named our "Loyalty Girl of 1929." 195 I I Movin Up Day " mans, oh where are the verdant Freshmen?" appropriately rang through the air again on May 30, 1929, as Moving Up Day saw the start of the annual period when the campus knows no Freshmen: when the Seniors of '29 decorously robed in academic costume took their places as alumni, and the other classes their respective new dignitics. The usual constructive assembl of the mornin was held under the aus vices of the various student . . . . Y . . 5 . .1 . organizations. witnessing the awarding of English prizes, loyalty medals, Flat keys, athletic awards, the passing of the Senior Cane from the new alumni to the future awe-inspiring ones ofthe campus, and the assumption of the duties of President of the Student Senate by Jack Mc lraw. "One, two, three, all to ether, bo sl" ierced the still Ma afternoon air, later in the da , as the So iho- S , Y P Y , , E , l mores and Freshmen struggled against each other for the last tlme for a Sophomore victory. ut lt was not a "nice, quiet" tug-of-war, for in the middle of the excitement, somebody hoisted a class banner, and rolls of underclassmen were soon scattered over the round at the foot of the fla ost,while one or two adventurous , , S SP ones dared the perils of the pole In an attempt to reach the flag. Of course the banner was captured, and now several men have pasted in their stunt hooks the fragments 0 the trophy which came their way. 'llllllS, once more Moving Up Day marked a milestone in our college lives. 1 196 l I Founders Day " MALL Colleges, Their Place in the American University System" was the keynote of Alfred University's Ninety-fourth Founders' Day program on December 5, 1929. Un -M fortunately. the weather forbade the customary academic procession across the campus, and permitted the appearance of the robed Seniors and Faculty only within Alumni Hall. President B. C. Davis briefly reviewed the history of Alfred from its founding in 1836 through the ninety-four years of struggle and sacrifice to the present time of comparative fortune and stability, and looked forward to future achievements. Alfredians were fortunate and happy in having two nationally-famed speakers, Rev. Oscar M. Voorhees, LL.D., Secretary of the United Chapters of the Phi Beta Kappa, who spoke on "Scholarship for Servicegi' and Robert L. Kelly, LL.D., Executive Secretary of the Association of American Colleges, who spoke on "The American College on Trial." It was fitting that we, on this anniversary day, in honoring those who began Alfredis history, should note the like progress of other small institutions, their place in the national system and their advantages over larger universities, their necessity and right to live, thus inspiring the present generation to perpetuate the work of those early Founders. Homecoming Day OMECOMING Day is always a welcome relief to the dull fall days, bringing its glad reunions with the return of old grads. Last year proved no exception when, on October 18, 1929, Alfred witnessed its annual 'trallic congestion. In the afternoon a large crowd gathered at the Athletic Field for the football game against Juniata. Lively with expectation were the spectators and encouraged by the importance of the day were the players! The football men rose to the occasion, and in a thrilling game run Juniata to a 21-0 favor-of-Alfred score. The evening brought 'forth several fraternity parties, at which the alumni were well repre- sented. It seemed like old times to have these familiar faces once more with us, and it was difficult for us to realize that they were now out in the "wide, wide world" as austere school- teachers or business men and women. We wish that they could come back more often. 197 X 0 .3 s-1 n n 1930 Improvements N anticipation of a constructive celebration of Alfred's centennial in 1936, President B. C. Davis has for the past three years been leading a movement for the expansion of the col- lege equipment to the extent of one million dollars, thus starting this institution upon its second hundred years not only with the heritage of bygone spirits but with the material advantage of better facilities. Alfrcd's Million Dollar Campai n has this year made great strides towards its goal in receiving bounteous gifts for the building of new halls. One hundred and fifty thousand dollars, the largest single gift thus far received by Alfred University, was formally resented and accepted at a banquet held at the Hotel Astor, lgew York City, on October 28, 1929. The gift was given by Mrs. Nancy Bartlett in behalf of her deceased father, Mr. Frank L. Bartlett, a man greatly interested in housing conditions of college men. whose desire it had been for many years to build a men's dormi- tory in Alfred. His sudden death prevented him from personally realizing this wish, but his will provided for a sufficient sum for a hall which is to be named the Frank L. Bartlett Memorial Dormitory and which is to be erected on the recently-constructed continuation of State Street, immediately beyond the Theta Kappa Nu fraternity house. It is to be a building of three stories and basement, a long hall with two lateral wingsg the main entrance to be approached across a park and through stately pillars. This dormitory meets an imminent need of the college in providing accommodations for Freshmen and non-fraternity upperclassmeng it will be a beautifying factor on the campus, and will mark one more step in Alfred's history. Since the burning of President Allen's home, nearly a quarter of century ago, the site at the foot of Pine Hill overlooking the campus has been barren, used only for celebrating bon- fires to herald far and wide athletic victories. fix If ' Qi.. 4 ,r I 7 ,, 'A .

In a locality such as Alfred, standing by itself miles from any metropolitan district, from the hustle, bustle and importance of general society, away from the ever-enlarging museums, art collections, theaters and business of greater centers, and holding in its valley a miniature civilization of energetic young people, a social center is not only desirable but imperative in aiding the pursuits and aims of the community. Last winter an anonymous donor, recognizing this need and inspired by the efforts of President B. C. Davis and by the earlier Bartlett donation, gave to Alfred University the necessary sum for the building of a l1all adequate to accommodate social gatherings, 'formal and informal, of all descriptions. In March, 1930, at a dinner of,Alfredians at Daytona Beach, Florida, the donor announced herself as Mrs William L. Ames of New York City. Thus the history of one plot of ground in the foot hills of the Allegany Mountains sparkles with interest and presents the ever-changing scenes of a developing community. During the summer of 1929 reparation for the loss of Babcock lflall of Physics was partially made by the building of a shop annex on the western portion of the ground where formerly stood Babcock llall. This shop has been in use for the last college year and has proven to be a decided improvement over the former quarters.

The formation of these new societies plays a part in the development, in the history, of Alfred. Lack of money for athletics became more than a subject for discussion to a small group of students in the Fall of 19293 it became a line of action. They organized, adopted the name of the Students' Athletic Fund of Alfred, obtained the co-operation of the honorary fraternities and proceeded to interest Alfredians in raising money for Alfred athletics. The first response was made by Theta Theta Chi sorority in the form of a tea dance which netted the sum of 320 for the organization. This public-spirited society is the first of its kind to appear on our campus, and it is hoped that its good work may be perpetuated. Later in the fall, the ever-active Y. M. C. A. revised its character and changed its name to A. U. C. A., Alfred University Christian Association. It is not merely the change of a name that is worthy of note but the extension of the scope of the association to a wider program than had previously been undertaken. In their new rooms in the upper story of the Greene Block they have held bi-weekly meetings embodying discussions and speeches. General popularity among the men has marked these meetings successful and has considerably ad- vanced an important campus interest. Kappa Eta Phi appeared in February, 1930, as a Hebrew non-secret fraternity, filling a well recognized inadequacy in the organization of campus society. The fraternity holds for its standards, the ideals of Alfred University-friendship, scholarship, obedience to authority and the principles of true manhood. As yet, it is in its infancy, we wish it a thriving and long life. Another sectarian fraternity formed itself in March, 19303 a Roman Catholic society known as the "Newman Club" and afliliated with the Federation of College Catholic Clubs. The main purpose of the society is to make possible for those so desiring, a place of worship in Alfred, necessitated by the undependable means of reaching such a place in neighboring cities. Success in its endeavors is sincerely wished for this group. In the assembly of March 13, 1930, the A. U. C. A. sponsored the formal founding of the Purple Key, a society composed of Sophomore men, two from each fraternity and two non- fraternity, for the purpose of offering to visitors welcome and the hospitality of Alfred. Visitors to Alfred will thus be assured of comfort and entertainment and will gain an im- pression of Alfred's best. The society is to be perpetuated by the active members tapping ten elected Sophomore men at the Moving Up Day assembly each year. It is becoming not only pleasanter to live in Alfred but to visit Alfred. By events such as these is built the History of Alfred. 202 I li Religious Activities AITJSWERING a long-felt need, the trustees of Alfred University last year created the office of college chaplain--a faculty member to lead the religious activities of the campus. In September, 1929, Chaplain James McLeod formally became the first person to hold this office. A native of Buffalo, he obtained his preparatory training in Lafayette High Schoolg as a member of the track team of which school he first visited Alfred. He is a graduate of Middlebury College and of Yale Divinity School. He therefore came to Alfred with a wealth of experience in campus life as well as in religious fields. Besides bringing a brilliant mind, and a progressive trend of thought into Alfred, Chaplain McLeod has filled many offices, being a member of every college organization and a successful coach of Cross Coun- try. He has stabilized chapel activities, offering a unified series of talks in which has been embodied food for thought-individual and collective. He has also organized and presented a regular college course in "Philosophy of Life"-a discussion course for the stimulation of thought. Thus the chaplain has touched every field of college life with an ethical feeling. With its individual leader and its background of past years the Union Church is now much more firmly established than previously. Congregations are on the average considerably larger although, owing to the burning of the village church, services have been held in Alumni Hall. It was a red-letter day in its history when on the first Sunday in December, 1929, the first communion service was held in the Union Church of Alfred University. Fol- lowing the tradition of the church an undenominational service was held in which those of all creeds could participate. This progressive step is one which has been anticipated by Alfredians for many years and brought a dream to a satisfying realization. The installation of a chaplain in Alfred marks a chapter in the history of the 'Universityg it has rounded out campus activities more nearly to that perfect unity towards which the founders worked and towards which the followers are carrying on. 203 MATCH Q19 I gg Z fS " a ' i ' 'N I ' Z KAW Mnlzi X 3 Cormac mom PAre'rs QF u. ii, THE PLANNS or: , x .XX f J if-nr' zu - ffl fm RI -in Musr FIRST BE QUT AND POLISHED FATZTUZKY THE MATc.H THEN comes To A HEAD.

" 'Q Q 4 l I 64Here, Niggerlw OCTOR Andrew Edward Markham leaned back in his white swivel chair and thought- fully regarded tl1c rows of hospital windows across the court. He loved his clinical work as he loved children, and this was the only way he could get into contact with them4-miser- able little beggars that most of them were! He remembered that Doctor Kine would be in in a half hour and Doctor Gillespie. He was hoping, in this, their last conference before they applied the knife to poor little Tuffy's badly bent body, that one of them could determine a better way to permanently cure him. He was glad of this little period of quiet. So absorbed was he in the troubles of others that it was only at rare intervals he escaped from the actualities of his busy life. Constant asso- ciation with his experiments and research work was deadening his normal emotions and reactions. He had no time to hate, to loveg no time even to ruminate pleasantly on whimsical things. He was dedicated to his work and was proud of his sacrifice. What else was there in life for him? Umnarried, disinclined to marry, possessing few friends outside of his profession, Doctor Markham was alone in life and was satisfied. As out of a dream, he heard a faintly distant cry, outside, on tl1e street. The ery came nearer. It was a child's voice, a boy's, and it was calling in a tremulous minor, "Here, Nigger, Niggerli' Dr. Markham leaned forward toward his front window and saw a taut little figure, breathless, quivering witl1 great excitement. The little boy raised a hand to his damp fore- head and crumpled his hair hopelessly. With a gesture of utter des air he continued up the block with l1is plaintive, "Here, Ni ger-here, Nigger, Niggerlw Doctor Markhanfs eyes were wide and blank like a sleepwaliers As he stared at the child his mind went rushing back to that other Nigger of his childhood. So intently did he watch the retreating figure of the child that the street and the trees along the edges ofthe street and the closely-packed stone houses all lost themselves in an incoherent maze. Only the receding back of the child remained clearly in focus. The little boy's name must be Andy! There was no other brain pattern for him that, in- cluding a Nigger, did not boast an Andy, too. The great doctor was pitying deeply. These little Andys were still suffering for their lost Niggers even as that Andy of thirty years ago had sorrowed for his lost Nigger. Doctor Markham was recalling his own eheerless boyhood. In vivid panorama its scenes were as clear to him as the vision of the little stranger had been who was already fading into the distance, but who had stirred him profoundly. Mr. Boyce had been difficult to live with. It was hard being the adopted son of the bank president, trustee ofthe church, and general man ofimportance in the town. It was especially trying when one's foster mother had been a stern schoolteacher, too. But the crownin diffilculty of this little Andy was Catherine, his sister, a few years older than he, and who had been adopted by the Boyces while Andy was still a frowsy baby inmate of the orphanage. She was an unusually intelligent child and to her foster parents seemed nearly perfect. She was the kind who would confess a misdemeanor and then beg to be punished so that her con- science could be relieved. She was a little saint in the eyes of the Boyces, so unaccustomed to the ways of normal children. When the child grew older other understanding mothers noticed and called to Mrs. Boyceis attention that Catherine had become too precocious. To help Catherine and to bring about a more natural home atmos here, 'Mr. Boyce suggested a companion, and so Andy became a member of that household? lfle could remember little of that first day in -his new home, only the intuitive sensing that he was to be the underdog. He remembered how that feeling dee ened as the months passed and Catherine claimed seniority rights to everything, expeeially tifle attentions and affections of her foster parents. Catherine lorded it over him tyrannically. She resented the presence of that little brother and seemed bent on showing her parents her superiority. She was always 216 l I praised extravagantly. Dr. Markllam could almost now feel the pangs of failure that at- tended those trying scenes with Catherine and the befuddling realization that she had beaten him. He recalled the wicked elation he had experienced at the anxiety of their parents when Catherine fell ill. Her illness continued a.nd there were sleepless nights with Mrs. Boyce rocking Catherine and singing to her, and Catherine's testy whimpering, to keep him awake. He remembered being told to run to the drug store for Catherine. He had taken delicious pleasure in wrapping the doctor's prescription and then having to retrace his steps to find it again. He had even managed to fall and scrape his elbow, which necessitated sitting down on the curb, and meticulously applying the balm of saliva. .lt was not the first time he had been Jut out for Catherine's benefit and he was going to make her wait a bit. Many anxious days followed and then came that night when Mrs. Boyce wept with her head on Mr. Boyce's shoulder. The doctor had said Catherine was dead. Andy could hardly realize that Catherine would not be about the house any more. He felt it was too good to be true until Mrs. Boyce took him solemnly aside and told him that God had considered Catherine too pure for this earth and had called her to be one of his little angels. Blithely, Andy started to take possession of Catherine's place in the horne,but he met defeat at every turn. The Boyces resented any presumption on his part, were annoyed when he assumed any of Catherinels little mannerisms, talked re Jeatedly of her many perfeetions and seemed to lose interest in his welfare. Forlorn, cruelly Ihurt by their constant criticisms and unkind comparisons, little Andy grew sullen, ill at ease and apparently stupid. He was not bright and seemed to have no confidence in himself. Since Catherine had been such a marvel of maddening perfection, Andy seemed es ecially dull. Every day he was reminded of Catherine's virtues, her sweetness and alniabigty, and his own inefficiency. He could almost hear Mrs. Boyce saying, in disdain, "Andy, you stupid, why, Catherine would no more have thought of doing thatln Sometimes he hated Catherine with a wild, unreason- ing anger. Why did she have to be so perfect? It could not have been fun for her to be that way and it certainly made it harder for him. It was times like this that the child confronted his sister's picture and stealthily spat at it. To add further to the Boyces' displeasure he was subject to spells of wanderlust. And here was the place that Nigger filled so perfectly. It was Nigger that trudged with him through lilac-scented spring mornings and dusky blue twilights-Nigger that dashed madly with him through seas of mustard weed. One little call could bring an ecstatic, anxious little friend to him, fresh for adventure. This was no maudlin boy and dog sentiment. Nigger symbolized more than thatg he radiated superior- ity. He was the expression of all the freedom that Andy loved. Nigger embodied a physical prowess that thrilled him. Nigger was a hero to Andy--had he not whipped Belinda, the big, dignified cat that had been Catherine's! That had been the crowning happy day even though Mr. Boyce had whipped Andy for not attempting to separate the 'two animals. Andy used to wish that Catherine were alive so that he could overpower her in seine wonderful way. Although he could find no expression for his emotions nor prove his worth to anyone but Nigger, Doctor Markham recalled with satisfaction that he grew, physically, into tall, strong adolescence. Then came that memorable spring afternoon when he had sauntered in from school, only to have his "Here, Nig er!" greeted with omnious silence. He quickly learned that they had given Nigger-wonderful, wise N igger-to the apothecary to chloroform because he was too old. It was true that by now Nigger had fallen victim to all the infirmities of old age, but he was still a good listening, understanding companion to Andy. Andy's first reaction was a storm of scalding tears, then he became furiously angry. "Why didn't you chloroform that old cat, Belinda? Why didn't you?" he railed between heavy sobs. "Why didn't you? Because it was sister's!" and Andy's lips flattened into an ugly sneer. "I hate sister! I hate you allli' He was crushed beyond expression.. He felt alone, helplessly bereaved. During the days that followed he was actually mute. He knew the Boyces were expecting some sort of an out- 217 I l break from him and took keen pleasure, one morning when he could bear the place no longer, in penning a dignified little note, saying, "I'm not ha py here any more since you killed Nigger. I've got to go away and Fil never bother you any more. Yours truly, t Andrewf, Dr. Markham realized now that the moment he had pinned the note to the plillow of his little white bed he was sa ing good-bye to all the aimless attempts of his child ood to find himself. His sorrow over lxligger had spurred him to action as nothing else ever had before. He remembered starting out with all the daring of the heroes of his adventure books. He felt reckless, confident. Throughout all the hardships that he endured for the succeeding few weeks he seldom lost coura e. When he was being followed by a friendly farm dog, he was happy, even his hunger dig not seem to daunt him. Rather, it gave him a lean, keen feeling, like the satisfying soreness of stretched muscles. When he had come upon Doctor Jenning's house he had had an annoying splinter in his finger. The doctor had been interested by the child's story and invited him to stay over night. Andy loved the place immediately, the big doctor, gentle Mrs. Jennings and especially little Paul, their frail, afflicted child for whom that next morning he had taken keen pleasure in mending a toy car. The doctor asked him to stay another night to give his now, extremely sore finger further attention. Andy was inwardly glad his finger was slow to heal. The very next day, he was suffering from a sus iciously clean-looking cut on his arm. Dr. Jennings announced with a twinkle in his eye that Andy's ailments were serious enough to warrant his spending some time there. Andy was shyly conscious of the fact that the doctor liked him and when told he could stay in his home and attend the high school, the boy suddenly became eager to please. ln this place, where no one knew him, he pretended he was clever, and spoke up in classes. And lo! he was clever! The doctor encouraged him with his reading and helped him considerably with his lessons. The happiest hour of Andy's day was the reading time just after dinner, with little Paul curled u beside him or resting his braces on the floor with his soft curly head against his knee. Paul sliowed such a lively, grateful interest that Andy found himself eager each day to relate things he had learned at school. The child's questionings proved a fine stimulus to Andy's new attempts at self-expression and his oor crippled body and delicate health aroused in Andy a sense of protection and responsibility. . For months Andy was happy in the congenial home atmosphere of the Jennings family, developing under their kindly direction, when suddenly, without warning the Boyces arrived. He remembered having gotten home from school earlier than usual and had been comfortably settled in the window seat in the library, his favorite spot. The doctor's bell twanged and he heard Mrs. Jennings' pleasant greeting, that she extended to all of the doctor's visitors. He even remembered the lovely lilt of her voice as she invited the callers to enter the waiting- room. "Thank you," came back another voice briskly, a man's, "Are you Mrs. Jennings?" That voice! Andy's first impulse was to cry out, but he jammed his face into his hands. Mr. Boyce had come to take him home! Andy trembled with excitement. He'd die! He'd run away! No, he wouldn't run away from here either! All the remembrances of his life at the Boyces came back like a flood and he loathed them. He forced himself to listen. ' "Yes,I am Mrs. Jennings," came back in clear, calm tones. "Is there something I can do for you?" "I understand," and Mr. Boyce was enunciating each word recisely, "that you are keep- ing a young boy here by the name of Andrew Markham. Am T correct?" Mrs. Jennings agreed. 218 I I "I am the boy's foster father. My name is Boyce. This is my wife." He heard murmurs of polite acknowledgments. "Andrew left our home rather informally as you must surely now, but I am considering taking him back again. We have been quite worried about him, knowing his mental abilities to be none too keen. Furthermore I cannot keep wondering why we had not been informed as to his whereabouts." Mrs. Jennings laughed pleasantly, "We soon discovered that Andy had run away from home, but I wish to differ with you when you say that he is not keen mentally. We have found Andy to be a highly intelligent child but acutely sensitive. After he had been with us a few weeks we began to realize the state of his emotions and could cope with him accordingly. Since then, Andy has Hroved to us that he has fine character and we wish very much to keep him here. My husban is a busy man or else he would have communicated with you sooner about Andy." Andy was startled by sounds of steps on the porch. "Doctor Bob," said Mrs. Jennings, "Andy's people are here to see you about him." The doctor's voice boomed out a pleasant greeting. 'Mr. Boyce began again, more formally than before, "Your wife tells me that you have given Andy his choice as to whether he shall return to his home or not. He is still my adopted son and inasmuch as he had a good home with us I feel that he should come to his senses and return with us." Andy was writhing with suppressed anguish. His emotion was almost over- coming him when he heard the deep, calm tones of Doctor Jennings. "Mr. Boyce, Andy has come to his senses. When he came here he was decidedly abnormal, not physically, nor mentally abnormal, but emotionally and s iritually. He was inhibited to a painful degree. He scarcely dared to call his soul his own. Allfhough he is by no means free from his inhibitions, yet,he is a much happier boy, as I can prove to you. If you will consent to his staying here, I'll have my lawyer over at once to straighten out the legal tangles as I must be off to a patient directly after luncheon. I don't request you to let me adopt the boy. I shall merely act as adviser and his friend. I will support him until he can support himself. How does that appeal to you?" During the silence that followed, Andy died a thousand deaths. He knew Mr. Boyce was fioundering. He was probably awaiting some cue from his wife that did not seem to be forthcoming. 4 Dr Jennings spoke a few terse words over the phone and when he had deposited the receiver on the rack noisily, Mr. Boyce began to prate ostentatiously of his "position in the com- munity," his "sense of failure in Andy and the desire to perform his duty to the boy." He was interrupted by the doctor who was deadly, sincerely in earnest, "Andy can get here what nobody has ever before bothered to instil in him and that, is self-esteem. I respect Andy's battle for normalcy and I respect him as the makings of a fine man." Andy,aware of every movement in the other room, heard Mrs. Jennings proceed down the passage to the kitchen. When she returned she announced that luncheon was ready and in- vited the Boyces to remain. But Mr. Boyce was uneasy. Ignoring her invitation he began, "I am very desirous of seeing Andrew. Where is he?" "He usually tries to get home from school to have lunch with the doctor. He must be de- layed at school today,' explained Mrs. Jennings. "We'll just start withouthim, if you please, as I am anxious to be back to my patient as soon as possible," said the doctor with finality. The Boyces reluctantly agreed to stay. The doctor and his wife were friendly and soon the Boyces were chatting with t em rather easily. Andy could bear the uncertainty of his position no longer. He bounded out of the low window into the garden. He stealthily opened the front door and thumped madly up the 219 I I stairs to Paul. When he entered the boy's gay little room he found that his procedure up the stairs ha.d wakened him. The half asleep child asked to be picked up. The child's presence soothed him. His determination was fired. He'd never leave-unless Paul wanted him to. He was ashamed of his outburst and by the time Mrs. Jennings called him from the foot of the stairs he was composed, confident. He slowly descended the stairs to the dining room with the child in his arms. Once in the room his eyes flew to the doctor's face-questioningly. The doctor transferred Paul from Andy's arms to Mrs. Jennings who 'tenderly carried him away-calling wistfully for Andy. Andy's heart was pounding hard again. lile just couldn't go hack there now! He wanted to stay where people respected him. Besides, Paul and he needed each other. Their dependence on each other was mutual. lle noticed that the Boyces were appraising him closely. He knew that they were wondering at the difference in him. "Well, Andrew," said Mr. Boyce solemnly, "Are you quite ready to return to your home?,' ' "No," Andy had said simplyg but his breathlessness betrayed him. "I don't want to go back. I'm never going backlii E Mr. Bo ce leaned forward an ril . And 's determined assurance was anno in to him. Y g Y Y Y 3 He was used' to Andy's quailing before him. The arrival of the lawyer saved the boy from the degradation of an outburst against Mr. Boyce. The next few moments while they all ad- journed to the doctoris office were agonizing for Andy. When he was dismissed and went to his room sick with fear at what might happen, he threw himself on his bed, face downward and dug his face into the pillow cruelly. But it was Mrs. .Jennings who saved him as the doctor told him long after. It was she who had appealed to Mrs. Boyce and had shown, almost unconsciously what Andy meant to her. He was the realization of all she had hoped for and lost, in Paul. it was Mrs. Boyce who had been moved to say to her husband, "John, I feel that I wish Andy to remain here. We don't need him, in fact, we seem to be happier without himf' The matter had ended there, simply enough and the lawyer arranged what papers were necessary. When Andy was summoned he took the decision silently. But after he had shaken hands with the Boyees in a more true spirit of liking than he ever experienced before, and after they had gone, his joy was boundless. He was ex eriencing the first really exultant day of his life. He felt free, untrammeled. There was notliing that he could not do! He watched Doctor Jennings prepare his surgical grip-he would be a doctor too, like Doctor Jennings. He poured his hopes and ambitions on willing ears. The doctor slapped him lustily on the back and said, "Go to it, Andy, nothing could make me happier!" Sk JF Sk Pk Pk ' Pk Doctor Markham recalled his long, hard struggle for success and the self confidence that had grown steadily-after he had thrown aside timidity-out of the mastery of countless difficulties. It was a painful remembrance because it was sweet and frought with emotion. Little Paul's sad death had aroused him to a determination to relieve the sufferings of little children. Here in a distant city he was carrying on his work with zest, for the loving com- panionship of Nigger and Paul and the doctor, and his wife had brought him through-a man, and a doctor, famous na tion-wide for his miraculous cures of children's diseases. Any downtrodden thing spurred him to ready sympathy. That is why he watched the forlorn little figure searching down the street, with an over- flowing heart. And that is why he turned to the physicians as they came in for their con- sultation and spoke to them with the ardor ofa man possessed of an inspiration. That is why the medical world is still marvelling over the skillful cure of little Tuffy, whom Doctor Markham later adopted and who is the proud possessor of a little black dog called Nigger.

Thousands will read it and pronounce it interesting and clever. Hundreds will read it with vivid attention because it is an historical record of a living year in their college activities. Many will read it in future years and live again in memory the days that are now so real. Some-those who have worked so arduously to make this book a success -will turn its pages with justifiable pride in this noteworthy product of their efforts. It has been, indeed, an appreciated privilege for us to be associated with the production of this book, even in the humble capacity of pub- lishers. The volume which we shall place upon our shelves will be a permanent reminder of the interesting relations we have enjoyed with the officers and staff of the 1931 KANAKADEA. We wish them and all the members of the out- going class the best that the world has to offer. May the enthusiasm which they have shown in their application to this important work be the means of their gaining many other laurels in the years that are ahead.
