It lias ljo« n Hic earnest oiin of this, the first AUCOLA STAFF, to create, a publication cni- bodying the highest standards of our college, worthy to stand as a precedent for succeeding issues of its kind, and to be a memorial to the Classes of ' 27 aiid " 2H. Our experience as classes has been short, but the memory of thai experience is to be the more carefully cherished beoause of the rare privilege ve. have had during it to establish the first traditions of our Alma Mater. It to to help perpetuate this memory that we have published this book. jT o AV f iiiiiiimui.j.i ii.|i. ' n,ii.u,m::ii,ii n Coi tents 1. c: U 111 I JUS 2. . (lnxiiiislr(ilioi 3. ( ' Insscs 4.

CLARK An executive is the concretion of experience and wisdom joined with initiative and the ability to command the con- fidence of associates. Someone discovered in Dr. Lucius C. Clark sufficient of this combination to propose him for the Chancellorship of American University at the point of su- preme opportunity in its develoimient. Dr. Clark ' s selection has been justified by the creation of the College of Liberal Arts; the expansion and the elevation in standards of the Graduate School and the School of Political Sciences; and the ranging about him of a board of finance which is working successfully for a gi-eat endowment. Chancellor Clark has a vision for American University which embodies the highest academic standards and the finest development of manhood and womanhood. DR. GEORGE B. WOODS When he assumed the task of forming a body of students into an academic unit — the creation of a College of Liberal Art.s — Dr. George B. Woods undertook no light task. The rapidity and ease with which it has been accomplished, how- ever, is a tribute to Dean Woods ' s ability to attain the high ideal he has set before him. The skill of administration and courage of initiative shown in all the policies of Dean Woods have forwarded an almost phenomenal growth in the College of Liberal Arts, while the academic standing of the college as well as its pivotal position in the scheme of American University, testify to wise and vigorous direction. Dean Woods ' s every relation with the student body has proved him reliable in counsel and ready in the encourage- ment of .-itudent enterprise. Despite his many duties, he nevei- has been known to turn away any student with a leal need for his advice or assistance. MISS MARY LOUISE BROWIN By reason of her high ideals for womanhood, and her breadth of understanding in coping with the many and varied problems proposed to her. Miss Mary Louise Brown, Dean of Women, is not only an executive jiower on the camjjus, but a real friend to any student with a difficulty or a need. Her devotion to the best for American University is shown not only in the academic standards evident in her classroom, but in the spiritual and social life of the Women ' s Residence Hall. Dean Brown has been in constant association with girls for several years, and this contact has given her a wealth of ideas and plans which she uses to make life interesting and pleasant for the women students. The love cherished for her in the hearts of her girls is the best proof of her great worth. yr =CK27 zr n. I ' JHJI.

One class has preceded, but in its short sojourn of one year it received only its final molding at A. U., while the Class of ' 27 may be said to be a true A. U. product. The Juniors of ' 26 elected as their president, Charles McDowell. It was due to his efforts as an organizer that the class was foi-med with the idea of giving its best to the College. The first year ' s roll was unique in consisting entirely of women with the e.xception of the executive, and his choice proves the futility of " Women ' s Rights. " A banquet given as a farewell to the Seniors was the most impor- tant class event of that first year. The college was so small as to make many closed class affairs undesirable. It was at this baiuiuet that the Class of ' 27 seemed to feel its separate ex istence for the first time, and to see a vision of the year to come and the opportunities it would bring. As a senior class under the leadership of " Dot " Mehring, the Class of ' 27 has stood for the highest standards in scholastic attainment and has given of its support to any movement which seemed destined to promote the general good of the college. The crowning social event of this year was the Senior Dinner given by the President. Here, counterparts of famous characters behaved in a manner which no doubt would have startled their originals, but their deeds that night will perpetuate their memories among those present in a way in which their previous attain- ments, no matter how glorious, never could have done. The greatest effo)-ts of the class have been put into the publishing of this first year book. The editorial staff has been composed entirely of Seniors, and, under the versatile editorship of Vera Stafford, it has striven to produce something worthy to commemorate the Class. In this under- taking it has been most capably assisted by an efficient group of Juniors who composed the business staff. It is to be hoped that the Class of ' 27 has given something of worth to its Alma Mater, but it is sufficient to say that its members have received during their two years at American University a training which they could have obtained nowhere else — true A. U. training which is of the highest type. Garth L. Beaver, ' 27. P GARTH I.. nEAVER II (ishiiifitim. . C. Assifitaiit Editor of " Aucoln " ; Orchestra ' 27; Fimthiitl Squad ' 21!.

U. ' s first student loody. Thus, this class has had a part in laying the foundations of tlie school. It consisted of but seven nienibei ' s wiien the college opened for the first time, to which another was added during- tlie course of the fii ' st year. Eleven men and one girl com- prise the present roll. It is this masculine majority which has made possible the great achievements of the class (but, to do justice, it must be said that one woman is our sole inspiration). Dui ' ing the year ' s ' 25- ' 26, many developments took place. An orchestra was begun and put well on the road to perfection by a few members of [he class. On the gridiron and couil others appeared and aided A. U. to gain the prestige in athletics that she now has. On the forensic platform ' 28 was ably represented. In order to further the better nature of the college body a few more started a Sunday vesper service which seems to be well liked by most of the student body. At the same time a noonday hour of worship was established for those who wished to get away from the daily routine of woi ' k. An endeavor to enumerate all the things that the class fostered in its fii ' st year is nearly impossible in so short a space. The successful play of the yeai ' did not fail to lind its full quota of Junioi ' s. Mothers ' Day was observed because of their diligent efforts. The event which was enjoyed most by the students and faculty alike was the Juniors farsical trial of the latter who were found to be, after all, very human. Thus closed their first year of accomplishments. As the new year opened ' 28 continued to carry on with all that it had undertaken. In athletics representatives took impoi ' tant parts. The orchestra, augmented by students from other classes, daily becomes a more important factoi- in the college community. The undefeated debating team is still suppoiled by the class. Further efforts brought new attainments. The Eagle has become a student paper of which any college might be proud and it has reached its pre-eminent position thi ' ough the contributions and labors of many .Junioi ' s. The University is unitjue in the establishment of an annual Dads ' Day program which was begun this year under Junior tutelage. Under the very able management of our Class Presi- dent assisted by others of oui ' number this first year book has been made possible. Be it not thought that the class is composed merely of staid intel- lectual bachelors. Romance abounds within its borders. One member is already mari ' ied. No less than a half dozen more have tasted the nectar of the gods and have found it to be good for the soul. Humbly, yet with a degree of just pride, in things we have done for our Alma Mater, we continue to carry on. To those who enter these college walls we hand the challenge to do even better. David R.

Aftei ' the upper classmen had called meetings of their re- spective classes, the Freshmen were allowed to assemble for organization. Seeley Cray was elected pi ' esidenl, and he took the chair, guiding the ex- pressions of the class into the propei ' channels. Jacob Snyder was elected this year to the presidency of the growing Sophomoi ' e Class. Legif lative. March ' A, 1926 was the date when the colors for the class were chosen. A heated argument as to which colors would blend artistic ally, ended in the selection of blue and silver. At the same meeting plans were oft ' ei ' ed for the Freshman " Bible. " The " Gosling Court " was formed September 24, 1926 with Courtney Hayward as " Chief Gander. " He was to " squawk " so loudly that all the Freshmen might beware of the Sophomores. Judleiul.

Social. If there was any " greenness " left over aftei- the end of the first year completed by the Class of ' 29 it may be laid to lack of proper treatment on the part of the upper classmen. " Hazing " was omitted from the category of this class. On October 28, 1926 however, the Seniors and Juniors tried to make the Freshmen women penitent and humble by compelling them to climb the dormitory staircase on their knees. The only college event of the year ' 25- ' 26 to be fostered by any one class was the St. Patrick ' s Party sponsored by the Freshmen. St. Pat- rick is the proper saint to whom any Freshman should bow. Dorothy Moore, ' 29. 35 Z7= A JZhl Oopli ' opuomore . CI ass Beasley, Dexter Oneont;i, N. Y.

U. were no exception to the rule. The best material in a college, however, always li s hidden in the Fi ' eshman class, waiting for kindly professors to bring it out by good hard work. Our " profs " did just that. In fact they did it so thoroughly that the end of the first month found us the best class on the campus! The " Sophs " refused to admit our supe- riority without an argument, and to settle the question satisfactorily a day was appointed when the better class might prove itself in a contest designated as the " Flag Rush. " Of course, we got the flag; the " Frosh " were " one up I " But, the members of our illustrious group were only just started in the performance of great things. After choosing a rousing Maroon and a sturdy Gray as class colors, men ' s and women ' s basketball teams were formed. The men ' s team played the " Sophs " four times: the " Sophs " won oner! The women ' s team played the " Sophs " twice and we blush to mention our overwhelming victory. Feeling, then, as a sportsmanlike class should feel, tiiat the unfor- tunate " Sophs " had afforded us enough glory we decided to give a dance and allow them to come. Friday, February 11th, found the " Gym " trans- formed by the " Frosh " colors, a snappy orchestra, and a floor like glass for the benefit of about fifty couples, mostly " Frosh " and " Sophs, " who had what they termed in the best underclass vernacular — a " big evening. " We cannot relate here all the glories of our history, and with this excellent sample it is easy to imagine the rest. There may have been greater " P ' rosh " classes than ours, and there may be still greater classes; but you just can ' t make us believe it. Leon Schloss, ' 30.

American University literally crushed Emerson in a siioil period game for its first vic- tory. The Americans probably played their best game against Blue Ridge, dooming them to disappointment by displaying unlooked-for fighting spirit and head work. A surprise party was staged when A. U. held the Hatchet- ites to a comparatively small score and also unexpectedly rated a touchdown. Although the game was won from Devitt, American University lost several chances to score through fumbles and showed the strenuous effect of three games in eight days. By means of a varied attack, Shen- andoah was neatly swamped and fell hard before this fleety eleven. After outplaying its opponent during the first half, A. U. lost to the heavier weight and superior reserves of the Maryland Freshmen. Gallaudet proved to be a plucky combination and defeated the Americans in a good clean game. American University victoriously closed her football season by defeating Bridgewater. The feature of the game was provided when American held for downs on her two-foot line. This first football record was one for which pride may be expressed. Spectacular runs added zest to the majority of games. The most in- tei ' esti! g fact of all was that in no game did American University fail to .score. t. Coach Spnnqston Capt.

University turned out a quint which any older University or College would either class as a great, or its gieaLest basketball team. The record of sixteen vic- tories in twenty starts, including the scalps of Maryland, George Washington, r,ett ' sburg and New York Univer- sity, is an accomplishment of undreamed deeds. Birthright, Banta, Kessler, Schloss, and Sawyer, ably assisted by Elliott, Caples, Christie and Gorth, are the r.ames to be emblazoned on the Orange and Blue records as the first squad of cage artists. Each played his part 1o perfection when called upon, and to eacli must go a share of the credit for the success of the team. To Coach Springton must also go a great part of the credit, for it was he who instilled into the hearts of the Ameri- can University cagers their fighting spirit. Bridgewater was the first team to tr, ' tiie strength of Captain Sawyer and his teammates, and to its sur- Capi Sdivuyer prise, through a sensational spurt of the American Uni- versity team, found them its superiors. It was in the closing moments that the A. U. Eagles, led by Banta and Sawyer, showed that they had more stamina than their opponents b. ' scoring some twenty points while Bridgewater went scoreless. Shenandoah offered little resistance in the way of re; l competition to the terrific oft ' ense of the Orange and Blue, with Birthright and Schloss carrying the brunt of the attack. The Virginia Medicos were mowed down by an unmer- ciful score of 48-18. Displaying a brilliant attack, fea- tured by short passes plus a sturdy defense, the Eagles notably ended this southern invasion. It was in this game that Captain Sawyer established what proved to be the season ' s high scoring record of ten field goals, twenty jioints, for a single game. Gettysburg was the next oi)i)onent on the list and they, too, suffered defeat at tlie hands of a loyal five whose fast floor work and aliility to keep pos.session of the ball was outstanding. Buihncjhi 47 v7=vv " CK27 M«il ' ,m,II.II.JIII!lliiii;.iiL«i.iiii,m;iy,rni Banld American University leaped into overnight promi- nence and f urnisiied a real upset in sporting circles, when they clearly outiilayed the famous old line five of Mary- land and emerged from the game as impressive victors. Christmas vacation offered a brief respite for the cage- men, but during- this time they met and again defeated IJridgewater. The team failed to show its real speed until the game was nearly completed; then they stepped on the accelerator and left the Bridgewater lads bewil- dered in the dust. I ' isplaying the same uncanny form that had featured the previous games, American University followed suit by laying High Point low. At no stage in the game was the final issue in doubt. Again much credit must be given to Bruce Kessler and " Bill " Banta who repeatedly bi ' okeup the opponents ' attack. (Jeorge Washington fumished a team which fell as vic- tim number eight, but not until the last few minutes of the game were they convinced of the Eagles ' superiority. Ofl ' ensive rallies of George Washington were continually repulsed by Birthright, Banta, Kessler and Sawyer, while the work of Schloss in caging four baskets had much to do with the final outcome. With American University rooters looking forward to a season unmarred by defeat. Catholic University pulled the unexpected and defeated the Americans. Playing below their usual standard and showing up in off color lost the game for A. U. Lynchburg was unable to cope with Americans ' fast passing and accurate shooting attack and following the footsteps of numerous others they, too, bowed before the Eagles. The following week, Western Maryland discov- ered that, once the Americans awoke and found them- selves trailing by eleven points, they were not submis- sive. The fighting American University spirit won once more. Blue Ridge proved to be easy pickings as Schloss, Banta, and Kessler looped the baskets almost at will. After the semester exams New York University did the Black Bottom to everyone ' s satisfaction while the Orange and Blue piled up a commanding lead. It was in this game that the services of " Jim " Birthright, our v.orthy center, were lost for almost all of the remaining season due to the spraining of his ankle. Unleashing a terrific attack in the final half, the American University quint trounced Gallaudet. " Bill " I ' -anta was the stai-, sinking eight baskets from many difficult angles. He was ably seconded by Kessler and Kessle zr 48 Sawyer. " Hiibbiu " Elliott, siibstitutinji- for Banta, who jumped center in place of Birthrioht, worked in well with the combination and played a whale of a iloor game. Despite the fact that American triumphed over Vir- Kinia Medicos for the second time, there was a general let-down in team pla - as contrasted with the work of the team against Ciallaudet. Sawyer and Schloss, who played a pleasing game for American University, were instrumental in piling u]) the lead during the first half which allowed American to coast into victory. Disappointment doomed the Eagles when they al- lowed George Washington to make a comeback on them after having shown themselves superior to the same team earlier in the season. The absence of Birthright, who was injured in the New York Universit - p.amc, and Schloss ' removal early in the second half greatly handi- capped A. U. " Old Man Luck " also had his hand in it. The American University cagers again released their terrific oft ' ense against Shenandoah and administered to them a severe drubbing. Captain Sawyer, who had in the recent games found his scoring eye, led the attack with the able assistance of his teammates. Dissatisfied with their showing against the Orange and Blue, the Kendall Greeners, who can play skillfully in their own gym, forced American University to bow to them. Not only was American ' s line-up weakened by Schloss ' illness, but neither Birthright nor Banta was in condition to make a creditable showing. . I St. Johns, with a record that presaged nothing, put 1 I up its best fight of the year against American and for 1 half of the game succeeded in thwarting the Eagles j H A. U. ' s quintet came back strong in the second half with B }?anta, Sawye! ' , and Kessler running wild against the I K .Johnnies and thrilling the spectators time and again with K sensational shots I B The hardest fought game during the past season oc- ■ 111 curred when the Eagles succumbed to the Catholic Uni- versity Cardinals ' vicious and freezing attack in the final half. Sawyer was in exceptional foi ' m for American Uni- versity, sinking four baskets and making good in three free tosses for a total of eleven points, but the best the Orange and Blue could do was to maintain the lead dur- ing the first half. Had Birthright been able to move about with greater ease, however, the final result might have been totallv dilTerent. Schic Elliott y7= «s. ■.!m,i|„i. ' l,„.!,li,l]J " ,„,l„IJ.

' s beg ' inners were initiated by the Carleton College team in a no-decision debate in March, 1926. The first triumph was a two-to-one victory over the famous cowboy team of Wyoming University. The team satisfied themselves for the first year with a unanimous decision over Randolph Macon. The members of the 192(5 team were Charles McDowell, ' 27, Hugh W. Speer, ' 29, and Roland M. Rice, ' 30. A. U. upheld the negative of " Resolved, That the proposed child labor amendment to the Constitution should be adopted. " Dean Woods and Professor Kaufman were the coaches in 1926. This year Professors Kinsman and Hutchins were added to the force. The coaches have chosen to train the team by debating against them in prac- tice. After a few such encounters any undergraduate opposition seems comparatively easy. In spite of the fact that the debaters were outnum- bered by their coaches this year, they still retained enough courage to mount the intercollegiate platform. The proposition for this year was " Resolved, That the Eighteenth Amendment should be repealed. " In the first two contests, against Western Maryland College and Bucknell University, A. U. lost by two to one deci- sions. William and Mary College, the final debate on the schedule, was a victory for A. U. by a unanimous decision. yr tJ XKiz .1 I .IIJMIUUI .nil l,ILII,llL ' i ' ..i.||.)IJ I., .1.11 Ifllil.!. llllllJlllUIIIUlJIIU,imilll!llllir» raniaiics FucuUij Advisor Me.

The Graduate School is an integral part cf your University and as such claims a share in your loyalty ; an incipient, iDut not on that account, a vague, perfunctory share. Before spending a L;emester on the campus, the student cf the College of Liberal Arts may v.-ell begin to feel some inspiration from the Cxraduate School, some sense of kinship with the candidates for advanced degrees. What then is the Graduate School? What do we do there? What subjects are taught and studied and with what aims? What has it to offer of practical value to students about to linish the college course? The Graduate School does not teach in the same sense that the High School or Junioi- College teaches. It guides independent research. It enables qualified students to use the tools which they have already mas- tered; but to use them advantageously, in association with scholars of more experience and riper wisdom. Not all of these scholars guide in the same manner, fortunately for their students. The atmosphere of the Graduate School is one of full association, with diversity of system, ac- cording to the field of study and the needs of students, and the preference of officers of instruction. In one department the lecture may predominate, in another group discussion, in another the laboratory and field work, in another research in libraries and archives, and in another the gathering of new material by direct observation for analysis, comparison, and interpretation. The test of successful work in the Graduate School is not a scheduled examination, nor, on the other hand, a mere teacher ' s impression. Ex- aminations remain, for they have their uses. The general impression made by the student on his associates and on the professors can not be left out of account. The real criterion, however, is original thought, in- dependent research, a capacity for finding out something new, explaining something which had not been explained, creating something useful or beautiful or interesting. Our Graduate School began with the study of philosophy. Where could it more properly begin? To understand the thinking process, the meaning of knowledge, the fundamental conceptions of science, of religion, of ethics, is the aim of philosophy. The graduate student of philosophy works at the fascinating problem of finding criteria for our judgments of values. Education, with its foundations in philosophy and psychology, is one of the important departments in graduate study. In our Graduate School the work of education is serious, practical, realistic. It turns mainly on administrative problems of secondary and higher education in the United States, approached, however, with ample historical and philosophical background. yr .P ' v History is an eminently appropriate field for research. To become familiar with original sources, to become competent in estimating the value of secondary sources, to take a hand in the actual interpretation of an epoch oi ' a movement, is a thrilling experience. Such opportunities in sevei ' al fields of histoi ' ical research are ottered in our Graduate School. Along with histoiy may be mentioned the rich variety of courses in juris- prudence, administration and political science. Economics and social economy have their own technique. An eco- nomic point of view, to be gained only by actual economic reasoning, is essential for an understanding of almost any subject of major importance. Religion, art, war, civilization, all have theii ' economic aspects. The solution of every social problem, poverty, crime,, racial adju.stment, housing, illiteracy, intemperance, involves a knowledge of the principles of social action. In the college the principles of economics are imparted. In the Graduate School the student applies those principles to the study of unsolved problems and surveys the methods by which social advance has been made or which are now urged for some new advance. Literatui ' e and the fine arts are the domains in which scholarship and culture come most completely into harmonious combination. The graduate student not only comes to a better appreciation of noble prose and poetry, great painting, sculpture and architecture. He also studies critically the judgments of the past and present. He may have the exhilaration of original discovery, of making known some neglected work of art, of in- terpreting more adeciuately some masterpiece. Advanced work in com- parative literary criticism, in the philosophy of aesthetics, in the appreciation of Christian and modern art, is open to students of the Graduate School to the full measure of their capacity. The physical sciences are within the scope of the Graduate School and some of the most notable woi ' k of its students have been in chemistry, geology, zoology and other departments of science. The laboratories re- (|uired for the research in these fields have thus far to be provided outside the University. Finally, the Graduate School finds one of its most extensive and fertile fields in the study of Intel-national Law and International Relations. No subjects are more important than these and none are more emphasized in our curriculum. Foreign trade, diplomatic history, especially the history of the diplomatic relations of the United States with all parts of the world, and the principles and procedure of intei ' uational law are all so organized as to give an opportunity for original research and for mas- tering the body of important existing knowledge. As an illusti ' ation of the methods in use it may be cited that in international law the ordinary doctor ' s dissertation is replaced by the actual draft of a treaty codifying some one subdivision of international law.

To us did seem this day one of much rejoicing and handshakinj S for, as it were, many of the students had not been met since the balmy June when closed the dear school for a summer of ciuiot and I ' est. The morning was a di ' udge and worry, the schedules sometimes con- flicting. Afternoon ftund us in a stupid, weary mood, and by night it did seem that we could not in enough haste find our old friends and begin a right lively discussion of those days of vacation we did have. Sept. 22. — Wed. To chapt ' l for the first time we did go and there heard our dearly beloved Lord G. B. Woods welcome us all. Evening d d bring the joy of a party for all the students where we all mingled and became acciuainted in a most enjoyable manner. Sept. 23. — Thurs. To cbsses we d ' d j;o with li ' ht hearts and steps as light. New teachers we did meet and immediately forthwith they lessons did assign. So we away with not so light a footstep and also forgetting the smile at times. Sept. 23. — Thurs. For us this ni, ht the faculty did give a reception which we did so much enjoy. (The flowers that did ornament the piano of yellow color were) . Oct. 9 — Fri. To a recital, given by our music master. Sir Deane Shure, which proved to be of much interest, being given by a few of his pupils. We did all attend and enjoy it. Oct. 28 — Sat. We all away to the hockey field where we did initiate those who were so unfortunate as to be Freshmen. Many were the harsh words and harsher chastisings which the Sophomcn-es did administer. The Juniors and Seniors did supervise, and this in a right imposing manner. Oct. 31. — Sun. The Hall all a ' bustle was this day. Each one excited was — Dad ' s Day I A goodly number of the parents came and we did have a lovely dinner in their honor. Many were the sad looks when night did come and the Dads did leave for the homes we all would well like to see. Nov. 5 — Fri. In brilliant regalia we did assemble to celebrate together the Hallowe ' en. Methinks ' twas one of the goodliest frivolities of the year there being a masked personage to represent almost every nationality. The evening ran its course and as it waxed nigh unto eleven o ' clock we were bade descend to Ye Olde Eat Shoppe where we did drink heavily of cider which pleased me as the best I ever drank. So to home and to bed without further ado, but it do speak badly for the younger blades that many of them did tarry even later than twelve o ' clock at Ye Olde Welle. Nov. 18. — Thurs. This night we were bade assemble in the parlor where we did hear Lady Elizabeth Drew speak to us. Our minds were mightily pleased by this, she being so reputed of wit all the world do expect great matters of her. Nov. 19 — Fri. The parlors this night were decorated for dance and a powdered concoction they do sprinkle on the floors — this to make the dancer ' s life in danger, thus making the dance more of interest. We did all attend and frolic until midnight, although we were heartily ashamed when we learned how we had thus allowed such a late hour to find us still dancing. - " rr g J XKlfSs IUMBIM[UUI.,UI..iniii.iam)ii.i». « » ,. iin nn ii «.i i r . Z7= :v Dec. 7. This night we did meet in the new Battelle Memorial to dedi- cate said building-. First we did go to the line of patrons where 1 did meet Sir Lucius Clark of much renown. Then we away to the Residence Hall where some music makers are gathered and we did step to the music until Lady Louise Brown did bid us to adjourn. Dec. 13. A right lively evening was this for the men, there being a dinner in the honor of our heroes in the game of football. Many were- the laughs which did come to the ears of forsaken damsels as we did sit in our rooms muchly engrossed with our class work while they did spend hours in pleasure. Dec. 1.5. In honor of the approaching Yuletide we did have a most elaborate dinner, being given for the nourishment of our bodies a large portion of the Yuletide fowl with (luantities of other foods which we did eat with nuich pleasure. Then to the parlor where we did hear a play which was given by our dear Lord William Hutchins. It being a touching play we all did leave much inspired. Dec. 16. This night all is a-stir with excitement. Our boys are to play their first game of basketball, the game being against the University of Maryland and they did have a team of good reputation. We did win this game after wh ch we did build a bonfire on the campus and there was much laughing and merriment, so exciting Lord Woods that he did let us have an hour extra to catch our trains for home the following day. Dec. 17. To our homes leaving our cares locked securely in our rooms — Yuletide greetings to all ! Jan. 4. We do go to classes again not fully recovered from the mince pie and turkey. Jan. 8. This day Lady Louise Brown did give for us a tea. A goodly crowd assembled and this delicious beverage was served with many kinds of the most delectable sandwiches. We did talk with those people from town and our heads did become full of all the daintiest bits of news. Then to our rooms to prepare for the costume recital given by a noted reader and contralto, Mrs. Julia C. Gray. This did prove to be very fine and we all did appreciate and enjoy it. Feb. 11. This evening the music makers did gather to and fell a ' play- ing upon their instruments, and, by the Harry, not many minutes passed before the room was packed. About middleways the dance — there was a right likely looking wench taken to one corner of the room and made to dance .a jig, which they said bids fair to take the town. She called it, Black Bottom, and so active was she I had fear lest she should sprain her ankle. Feb. 12. We did this evening enjoy a Valentine dinner. The tables were decorated with hearts and stre amers, at the end of which we did find attached a card with predictions good and otherwise which did amuse us all. Feb. 18. To Marjorie Webster School where our girls did play basket- ball. A hard fought game it was but we did win by a score of twenty-two to eighteen. 69 jT 4t) Klf% FAMOUS SAYINGS OF FAMOUS MEN " Make the world safe for Democracy. " — Woodrow Wilson.
