In previous years this book has been presented as the work of the
senior class. This year we believe that, considering the faithful sup-
port of the under-classmen and the commercial course students, the
book is not the work of the members of the senior class as a class but
of the students of the Edinboro State Normal School as a school. As
such we present it and as such we hope it may be presented in the
XVe have striven to present a picture of Edinboro life as seen at
all angles by all people. How well we have done this we leave for
others to decide. VVe realize that the many faults which we have
overlooked will be only too easy for others to see, but we hope that the
spirit in which the faults are committed will be ample apology for the
faults in themselves.-The Editor.

NVe came three years ago, in the fall of 1910. There was no great
disturbance caused by our arrival. No September leaves fell from
shocked treesg no arches or gateways smiled and opened their arms
to usg no songs of rejoicing were sung by astonished birds. Instead
we slipped in quietly. one by one, half frightened by the griin old
gateways and wholly frightened by the many strange faces we saw.
lVe showed no sign of great brains or even of good ability, and we
were mighty glad when anyone smiled at us and told us where to go.
Altogether we were a motley assemblage, but we came for a great
purposegewe came to learn. Had we been wise or brilliant we would
never have come at all.
XVe elected as officers Harold Hood for president, Icel Parker for
vice-president, Florence Hutchinson for secretary, Leonard XVhite for
treasurer, Cecil jones for editor. Then we found our places and set-
tled down to work. lVe went to our classes with just big an armful
of books as you are carrying, dear little Freshmeng and we made the
same squeaky noise at the ball games. Wie did one thing of noteg on
Arbor Day we planted the iirst tree ever planted by a junior class at
Edinboro. But all in all, our course was the course of the average
junior class and we left in the spring of IQII uunwept. unhonored and
The fall of ,II saw us again in Edinboro with recruits to take the
places of those who fell before the merciless faculty and the dreaded
state board. XN'e decided that Arthur Johnson was the right man to
pilot us through the year and that Lilian Christenson was best fitted
to assist him. The other officers for this year were: secretary, Nina
Swiftg treasurer, Charles Scottg editors, Harold Hood and Irene
This year, by persistence and industry, rather than by any par-
ticular brilliancy, we attracted more attention than we had done the
previous year. lVe gave the Hallowe'en entertainment and we be-
lieve we acquitted ourselves creditably for a first venture. Wie put
out the best boys' class basket ball team in the school and stood a
close second in girls' basket ball. Of course we gave the usual recep-
tion to the senior class and both we and our guests were satisfied, and
that is really what comprises the success of a social function. Wie

end we learned something of the magnitude of
and something of the responsibility that rests
of the work of all school functions. Wie gave
the winter welcome to new students and observed tradition in the
annual senior sleigh ride. XVe furnished our share of the school's
athletes and supported them with our yells and songs. Wie planted
our tree on Arbor Day and gave the May-pole dance. Others who
saw know better than we whether or not these things were good.
Now, as we graduate, we can bequeath to the next senior class
only our heartiest good will. The places we have filled we cannot give
and have no desire to give. They are our birth-right, to be cared for
and cherished while life lasts. Wfe have filled them well, or indiffer-
ently well, as the case may be. Wie shall continue to till them as loyal
alumni when we are gone and cannot take active part in the daily

we make in this class is but a continuation of our life and record in
school, and our success or failure will depend upon the steadfastness
with which we adhere to the purpose and desire that brought us here.
the purpose and desire of learning.
To the class of ,I4, then, we give, not our places, but our hopes
that she may be successful in filling her place. May she be the best
class ever graduated from Edinboro. To our Alma Mater we give our
loyalty and support. .
May it be said of the class of ,I3, as of the woman of old: "She
hath done what she couldf,
How pleasant the conflict with Learning,
Wfhen the spoils of the battle are ours!
XN'e cherish our true Alma Mater,
lYe crown her with memoryls flowersg
Wie laud her outshining the meteors,
A mystic light falls from her throne,
And illumines these fair halls of Learning

Our red and blue banner, kept floating,
From her lofty height proudly surveys
Past victories, and toils of the present,
And hopes of our glad future days.
The verdant fields stretching before us,
Our teachers, though human, have seen
And aroused higher motives within us.
They loved us, our class of Thirteen.
All hail to these unsceptered sovereigns,
VVho sway the world by their power!
They promote the science of kingdoms,
As monarchs, they stand, of their hour.
XVe esteem them, we honor them everg
As our class matures with age,
VVe'1l think of one moral they taught us,
More often than scores from a sage.
Then, comrades, a health to our teachers,
And a cheer for the triumphs attained,
A wreath of wild olive to athletes,
To our wisest the laurels they gained..
Our past times shall not be forgotten,
Nor the friendships of Auld Lang Syne
Enthroned in our hearts as a heritage,
They are ours by a right that's divine!

lYho evades, then, the lures of the learner.
Or who seeks for the honor to teach,
Not dazzled by the glare of desire,

To be a light in our own little corner,

And make earth the heaven we ask.

LEXYIS ACKER, Littles Corners.
Ackcr docsn't have time for anything except books and Y. M. C. A. Any
time of day or night, if you were to look in his room or clothes closet, you would
Iind him on the floor with his books. A
Lewis is the baby of the class, a dyed-in-the-wool book worm, and we look
for him to be a. boy wonder some day. His only recreations are base ball and
tennis. We suspect that his greatest ambition is to be a second Mathewson or
Cy Young. However, he doesn't let this ambition interfere with his studies.
MARY A GN ENV., Edinboro.
"Is thy name Mary, maiden fair?"
Mary can play for we certainly have to keep step when she plays for us to
march from chapel. , I
Her favorite occupation is keeping store. It is not as trying as going to
school, although we are sure she can expound knowledge to young Americans.
The only way in which she makes a nuisance of herself is by carrying

DORIS .-XRIIDON, North East.
"The world is too much with us."
At all meetings on second iioor you find Doris with her mandolin, which
she is very fond of playing. Another of her accomplishments is talking German,
which often tries the patience of her room-mate.
We often wonder why Doris sits and gazes across the street, and after
flreaming for some time begins to sing "School Days."
LE N.-X A N DREXYS, Spzirtausburg.
"Quiet talk she liketh best
In a bower of gentle books-
Watering flowers, or reading books." Q
In Lit. class she always answers "one hour," and her hand is always the
first one raised when knotty parts of Chaucer are to be translated. She doesn't
like afternoon classes any better than the rest of us, but she has a particular
dislike for History of Education.

LEO ARMIGOST, Venango.
Leo is an accomplished young man and an authority on styles. He first
gave us wearing stickpins on jerseys-a new one to all. l-Ie has a. fine tenor
voice and the plaintive strains of his violin would draw tears from a cigar store
Indian, while his livelier notes are the envy of all the Edinboro song birds.
We are sorry to say that Leo has fallen victim to the wiles of woman. And
he was such a nice boy.
HELEN llATl.lURS'l', Clarendon.
Helen was a credit to the oratory department in "Mrs. Briggs of the
Poultry Yard," and to the physical training department in "The Mouse Trap".
She always has her lessons even if no one knows when she gets them. The
onlly lesson she can't get is trigonometry and she says that is all kinds of
PAUL BELLOXYS, Meadville.
Bellows is a popular lad. He has a stand in with all the girls t?l Playing
the part of baby in the Potter farce seemed to be natural for him. As a cheer,
leader we predict a brilliant future for him. Any school needing one will please
notify us and we will send him by return freight.
The only disreputable thing he ever does is to get Wildman into scrapes.
Bellows insists that Wildman got him into the scrapes but we believe that is
simply a bluff.
HUBIERT BENTLEY, Beaver Center.
Bent is quite a lad. He is some orator as shown by his response to the
senior will last year. He was pretty good in foot ball and could play basket
ball. Hubert likes Lamb, too, but that is a long story. According to this young
man's doctrine, people wear too much clothing. Nothing would suit him better
than to be turned loose in the wilderness stark naked. But we cannot afford to
do that. We need him here to keep third iloor from going to sleep during
FREDA ROXYERSOCK, Oil City.
"Just to see her is to love her,
Love but one and love forever,
For Nature made her what she is
And never made another."
Freda seems very quiet, but wait till you know her. She does not believe
in staying away from Oil City during vacation. Her chief aim in life is to
learn to play the piano and to sing. .

MADONNA BOYLE, Albion.
"And if any painter drew her,
He would paint her, unaware,
With a halo 'round her hair."
From seven to seven Madonna is sober and quiet, at eight mischief's
brewing, at nine the dimples are showing, at ten life is bubbling, at eleven
laughter's o'eriiowing. Donna says her father didn't send her here to study. Not
so hard to believe, either.
BESSIE BROXVN, Cambridge Springs.
"A mind at peace with all below."
Bessie is very painstaking in all she does. She is the sort of girl who does
her work and does it well and without complaining. She is a true patriot and
loves the "red, white and blue" even when it is in the form of "bunting."
ETHEL LILAH CASE, Girard.
"Hip-i-ty hop to the barber shop
To buy a stick of gum?
This wee, little girl is known to us all as "Casey." The above quotation is
given in remembrance of one of her most noted blunders. Ethel is an ardent
lover of domestic science, especially of the art of making button-holes., As one
of the "Gold Dust Twins," she gained much attention and popularity at the
Halloween party. Perhaps the virtues ol' "Gold Dust" account for her cheerful
NEFF CASS, Harbor Creek.
Cass will some day gain a reputation as a cornetist and vocalist, if not as
an editor. He is pretty clever at the editor job, too. He hasn't cared much for
the ladies during his stay with us, but we hear there is a reason back home.
How about that, Neff? Cass is in the habit of spending most of his time from
three-thirty to seven in one of two occupations. The first and pleasantest is
interviewing Mr. Kupper and the second is playing tennis.
OLIVE M. COCPER, Sugar Grove.
"Full many a'ge1n of purest ray serene,
The dark, unfathomed caves. of ocean bearg
Full many a. Bower is born to blush unseen
And waste its sweetness on the desert air."
This maiden believes that olives grow less bitter when turned toward the
"son." But who would mistrust that beneath those "sonny" smiles rested like
lead the grief of a domestic tranquility disturbed by the hands of a war-like
room-mate. Nevertheless, she would leave that door open, for. Olive is a brave
girl. We know this to be true, for who but a brave girl could walk on fright-
ened chairs, without falling off, when a mouse is in the room.

LEAH CRANDALL, Edinbol-0. N
' "Here's to the girl with a heart like a trolley car-always room for .one
Leah's smiling face and thoughtful ways have won for her a place' in
school life that no one else can fill. She's always on hand at the time when and
the place where a cheery word or a bright smile is most needed.
CATH ERINE CRAXVFORD, Pleasautville.
"And living wisdom with each studious year."
Catherine is one of our studious girls, a firm believer in "midnight oil."
While engaged in studying, Catherine likes to sway back and forth in a rocking
chair which she almost invariably places upon the screechiest board in the floor.
She is very fond of literature and has even been known to write verses. Her
favorite flower is the Marsh marigold. We wonder why.
ETH EL CROUCIAI, Bradford.
"Her greatest care is how to tix and comb her hair."
Ethel came to us from Clarion Normal where her Middle Year days were
spent. In spite of her oft-repeated "Oh, kids, what's the use?" she consumes
many a gallon of "midnight oil" while delving into her well-loved t?l text-
books. This popular girl possesses a chafing-dish and many a fine feast it pro-
vided for her friends until Mrs. Tanner issued her command to pack away all
such causes of indigestion in the darkest corners of our trunks.
CLYDE DAVIS, McKean.
Davis doesn't blow his own horn loudly and so we don't know as much
about him as we know of some others. He is quiet most of the time, but sighs
sonorously in 1:15 classes. From this we gather that he is human in one
respect-he enjoys his dinner. He's something more than human when it comes
to pulling in the marks and we often gaze in wonder as he quietly explains'
things we didn't know were in the lesson.
ROY DE .-XRNIENT, Conneaut Lake.
Roy has endeared himself to our hearts and to one heart in particular.
It was rumored that Roy had moved his trunk and suit cases across the creek,
but we arc glad to say the report was false. He brought them all.back, didn"t

'XVARD UE RERIER, Towuville.
Wardo the Desperado is popular with the ladies. He won his popularity
on the gridiron, for Wardo is some foot ballist. He made good at both half-
back and tackle and would doubtless have been able to play any other position
on the team which he captained so well.
He says he isn't in love, but we are going to ask Mabel. We can account
for a lowering of a previously brilliant class record in no other way, and Ward
mourned loudly about his sprirg-tcrm record.
4XDl.l.-X DICKEY, lflartstown.
Alias XYO0ill'OlV lVilson.
If Wilson wants to know who put the win in winner. tell him to ask
Dickey. Dickey is directly responsible for Wilson's election. Now Dickey wants
a post-oiiice job.
A good speaker, a thorough student, an unwilling contributor to the
"Birch Rod," a fine fellow, and a sound sleeper. There you have Adliafs chief
characteristics in a few words. We might add that he is nothing but a human
being as shovqn by the wry face he makcs when any one mentions Trig.
ETHEL MARIE DICKEY, llartstown.
"A maiden never boldg
Of spirit so still and quiet, that her motion
Blushed at herself."
This shy, little maid with her far-away voice came to join us near the close
of our career as Middlers. It has been rumored that Ethel gained her habit ot
keeping quiet from listening to the impassioned oratory of her brother. She is
an industrious student and rarely responds with, "I don't know," when asked
a question in class. Ethel is a good disciple of Miss Powell in Domestic Sci-
ence. When not poring over her books, she may be seen busily employed upon
a bit of sewing.
GRACE DUNN, Cochranton.
"Thou art like unto a flower."
"Little Grace Dunn," that is what we all call her. She is a dreamer. She
can write excellent compositions and in fact she does everything well. She
likes poetry and just enjoys herself when she is rea.ding Chaucer t'?J She is a
small mite, but she holds a large space in all our hearts.
M.-XR.lORlE IUSHPIR. Grancl Valley.
Marjorie's fame is not limited to mere lessons, but extends to all school
functions. Her basket ball skill did much toward securing a sweeping victory
for the senior girls. She has been president of the Y. W. C. A. and of the Philo
Society. She has done l161' share to make lite enjoyoble for the Haven Hall
girls and miserable for her iioor teacher. We often wonder what a midnight
spread would be like without. her to corner the olive supply and keep Lois from
going to sleep.

ST UA RT GRAH A M, Meadville.
"Foot ball is a charming game
And so is basket ball,
But of all the charms of all the things,
Love has the greatest charm of all."
We are proud to rccognize Stuart as one of our number. His athletic
ability has been of great value to us and We certainly appreciated his ability as
a point getter in basket ball and his speed and courage in foot ball. Stuart doesn't
let a few books spoil a good time for him and he can waltz with the classiest. He
is fond of strolling on the campus between six and seven o'clock in the afternoon.
He has a wonderful appetite for' so small a lad and only John Doing knows how
many rolls he eats in a week.
GRETCHEN GRIMINGER, Cambridge Springs.
Gretchen is one of our day students, coming each morning from Cam-
bridge Springs. When she misses the car, it is always "because the car left
ahead of time." Gret is good in all her studies, but she sometimes neglects the
others for her "favorite arithmetic." She has a cheerful disposition and seldom
has the blues. When she does, however, all that is necessary to revive l1er is :1
letter from Erie.
M EAR LE GRI SXYOLD, Edinboro.
Mearle likes men. That doesn't mean that she doesn't like everyone else.
but that she does like men better than she likes everyone else. There never
was a time that she couldn't think of something to say back when some one
tried to say mean things to her and what makes that odd is the fact that she
never says mean things back. She does say uncomplimentay things about John
Milton and his minor poems but then, John is dead and he wouldn't care what
she said if he were alive.
M.-XRG.-XRET lflAlGlrlT. Meaclville.
Her highest ambition is to get. an "A" in Lit. She never does anything
right for the fates have decreed otherwise. She is left.-handed. Her only
pleasure is in midnight spreads. She is a sensible girl who takes the right sort
of interest in her school work and in the profession she has chosen as her own.
We need make no prophecy concerning her future for it is an assured success
and needs no boosting to make it bright.
FRANCES HANNAH. North Girard.
"Hence, loathed Melancholy."
Frances early learned that success in reciting depends more upon ingenuity
than knowledge. This discovery has made her the envy even of the faculty! We
shall think of her a.fter Normal days because of the sunny atmosphere which
always surrounded her whether in a February blizzard or an April thunderstorm.
The only thing she does that the faculty says she mustn't is dance in the gym.
when she knows it's "against the wishes of her dear teacher," to use her own

MARGARET HARRISON, Crossingx ille.
Margaret is a very quiet appearing girl, but always has a pleasant smile.
She dresses modestly but has a taste for Red Jewelltsl. She is fond of helping
Mary keep store and was in a large measure responsible for the founding of
"Quarterback's Refuge." She is a loyal Philo and on numerous occasions she
has delighted us with her ready wit and ingenuity in making impromptu
speeches. Not everyone has the many friends that Margaret possesses.
ORA M. HASBROUCH, Corry.
"A maiden with wealth of hair,
Nay, even more, a wealth of auburn hair."
Ora is one of those girls who is always looking for a good time. Although
she is not miserly, she will hang on to a "Bill." Ask her about sheigh rides
and she will say, "0h! you mum" When there is a meeting of D. D. D.'s "Riley"
is always on duty. Ora is thinking of going to Penn. State next year. Wonder
why ? '
1-IAMIE HATCH. Cambridge Springs.
"When shuts good she's awful good, but when she's bad she's-not so goodf'
Her hobby is carrying an armful of books and we suspect that she is train-
ing for a porter. She hasn't a very big voice, but when the profs want to know
a thing they always ask her and she always answers even if she isn't noisy about
it. She says she doesn't. believe there is any such thing as a sentence and she
almost makes the rest of us believe it, too. However that may be, she has no
diiliculty in making sentences when occasion arises.
ISABELL HOMAN, Cooperstown.
Everyone knows Isabell and any attempt to tell something about her that
isn't already known is similar to defining space. Therefore, we shall tell what
everyone knows, lest we forget. She is of medium height, rosy cheeked, pretty,
and has light brown hair. Everyone likes her, for she likes everyone. She
never "stays sore," even at the faculty. Ittakes patient workers like her to
make things move and it takcs true worth like hers to be recognized as a moving
agent when the strong light is turned off.
ELMO HOUTZ, Cochranton.
"Houtzie," better known as "Kempe" among the "D, D. D.'s, loves to stroll
in the springtime when a haze tHaysl is on the meadows. She is a stately,
demure young person to the eyes of the stranger, but when it comes to a feed
or any other good time she is not a wall ilower by any means. The Philos
considered themselves lucky when she came to add her sweet voice to the other
more or less charming vocal efforts.

FLORENCE HUTCHINSON. Cambridge Springs.
A very good student, always on time for class, never has to get a permit,
always cheerful and ready to lend a helping hand. If that isn't a record that
any girl may justly be proud of we would' like to have some one mention a
better. In addition to these good things Florence can give or take a joke with
equal ease and good grace. Sometimes she wishes they didn't expect so much
of people but she is so busy doing things that she has mighty little time to
worry over it.
ARTHUR JOHNSON. Clarendon.
"Here's to you, old school-mate, sharer of hopes and fears,
Yes, here's to you, Johnson, may you live a thousand years.
May I live a thousand also, a thousand less one day,
For I'd hate to keep on living, when you had passed away."
See him and you want to know him, know him and you want to be his
friend. He is pleasing in personality and gifted with the rare ability of making
even his enemies respect him.
Art is very fond of canoeing and spends sunny summer afternoons on the
blue waters of Conneautee. Many thrilling adventures can he tell-ask him.
Edinboro never had a better full-back than "Art" and it was a serious loss to
the team when he was hurt at Titusville and kept from playing for the rest
of the season.
KARL JOSLIN. Albion.
"Sober, steadfast and demuref'
Karl's middle name is "Speed" He is a quiet, unobtrusive senior. He is
never shy and who will call him awkward? As for love, Time and Woman will
tell. He has a school-wide reputation for his pleasant manner and dignified
gait, characteristics of all men of affairs. Some people get out and tell what
they are going to do, but Karl does things and then leaves you to lind out- for
MI LDRED -IOSLYN.
One of the best liked girls in the senior class is Mildred Joslyn. She
rose to the height of her popularity in the spring term of her senior year, for
she was ever ready at that time to furnish copy for enterprising note-book
luggers. One of her feats was walking home, a distance of some twelve miles,
against a strong wind. The respect with which the rest of the 1:15 Lit. class
listens proves her to be as good a student as pedestrian.
Ml-XRIAN JUDD, Emporium.
Marian is possessed of very small dimensions, a very ingenious brain, a
multitude of friends, and a general all-around-ness.
She gets outrageously good marks in both Physics and Lit. She dances
"divinely," is a chafing-dish connoisseur and is fond of the men.
What more need be said?

RUTH KIDDER, North East.
"Blue were her eyes as the fairy ilaxfl
Ruth is a diligent young woman, an authority 011 any question that may
arise. You never hear her say, "I don't know," or, "I can't remember." She has
the pleasing faculty of saying and doing the right thing at the right time. She
is an active and progressive member of the Philo Society and has held several
society offices. As a Mid. she was one of the strong places in the girls' basket
ball team. -
ZOE KILBANE, Edinboro.
"Maiden with the meek brown eyes, ,
In whose orbs a shadow lies
Like the dusk in evening skies." '
Zoe appears to he quiet and studious, but Dame Rumor says she is not
always so quiet as she seems. Her dark brown eyes can sparkle when those
"Model Kids" don't toe the mark, and we are contident that it is this sparkle
that will clear her path of obstacles in the future.
ALMEDA KILGO RE, Stoueboro.
"A countenance in which did meet
Sweet recordsg promises as sweet."
Almeda is a doubting maiden and is often heard to say, "Did he really?"
Although she is suspected to have an aversion toward men, we trust that she
will overcome this in time to live a happy life in some quiet little town. She
dresses quietly and doesn't try to attract attention, but we know she is here for
all that. She writes the most delightful compositions in Mr. La Bounty's 9:45
EVA KLINE, Edinboro.
"Her eyes as stars of twilight fairg
' Like twilight, too, her dusky hair."
Eva is a happy, jolly girl who looks at the silver lining of every cloud and
says, "I can almost see the sun shining now." Many were the remarks made

i f "Kms"
John is a model young man of the senior class. His chief ambition is to
become a detective. He should be a good one for no one could possibly get
better training than pursuing dilinquent members of the Athletic Association
and obtaining money from them. He takes situations as they come and never
worries. He is a great favorite at Haven Hall and there is no case on record of
his having been invited to leave by the quickest route. M'

MARLEY O. LEACH, Waterford.
"Why--why-er-I guess so."
Marley is one of our best students. In the class room he is a. whirlwind
but in the dining room he is two whirlwinds, a hurricane, and a few cyclones in
one auburn-trimmed edition. We need say nothing concerning his athletic
abilities for his reputation is established. He considers the fair sex a necessary
evil and any attention to them utter folly. ln spite of this failing we predict
for him a bright and b1'eakfast-Iilled future. A

HA dainty knot of blue, '
A ribbon blithe of hue,
It fills my dreams with sunny gleams-
That little knot of blue.
Marion is very original even in her way of studying. She believes in edu-
cation by conversation, not by books, as Helen can prove. She never enjoys
herself more than at the table with Miss Markle at her left and t?J at her
right. Her ability as a school teacher is appreciated by the head of the Depart-
ment of Pedagogy and she is often asked to give exhibitions before classes of
RUTH MAHAN. XVarren.
"Let my lamp at midnight hour
Be seen in some high lonely tower."
Ruth joined us in the spring of '12 as a Middler and has proved the right
sort of classmate ever since. We predict for her a long and happy life of ser-
vice-successful service. .
VERNA MARKLE, Brookville.
"Here's to you, blithe Verna,
May you live a thousand years
To sort of keep things lively
In this vale of human tears." L i -
If the children of the old woman who lived in the shoe were all like Verna,
the old Woman would never have lived long enough to have a rhyme Written
about her. Verna has her serious moments. "Look at those A's in Lit." She
is a fine reader and often delights us with her interpretations of various authors.
CHARLES E. MARSH, Ten Mile Bottom.
Char1ie's greatest ambition is to be a teacher in the Philippine service.
He is a great student and a loyal fellowg one who may always be counted on to
fight for his class at the drop of the hat. Marsh is one of a very few married
men in the class. His greatest oisappointment came to him in Lit. class. His
greatest fault is staying out Saturday nights without permission.

HAZEL MARSH, McLane.
"One of the sweetest of girls, .
Without many primps and curls."
She seems shy at first, but after one is acquainted with her one finds she is
not. Regular as the clock and twice as apt to be going, Hazel is one of a chosen
few who does not fear either State board or faculty.
CHERITY Mr-XYHEW, McKean.
"Work apace! apace! apace!
Honest labor bears a lovely face."
"Cherry" is the most patient member of our class. You seldom hear her
complain of anything. She W'0lkS faithfully no matter how difficult the task.
She never talks about anyone. She just pays attention to her own business.
She d0esn't realize that we are looking on and know that she is busily storing
her head with knowledge while we are loaling. Success to you, little maid.
ELLA MAYS, Garland.
"She has a smiling face they said.
She has a jest for those she meets."
Ella is a poet of some rank in school. Her poetry is just like herselfg it is
delightful. She is a firm believer in the Socialist party and longs for the time
when it will be victorious. She never boasts of what she knows, but is always
boasting of others. How would you know her? She is like a bright sunbeam
that drives dull care away.
AGNES MQCARTNEY, Randolph.
"And I laughed, and laughed, and laughed 'til I thought I would die
And of course we had to laugh, too, for who could be sad when Agnes was
around? It is sometimes difficult to find out where Agnes isg for instance, you
never can find her on the stairs when there is a. bannister near. In her spare
moments you can hear her reciting "Il Penseroson by the yard. Whether she
knows anything about History of Education or not is merely a matter of con-
jecture, but she is an adept at making Mr. Walk think she does.
LULU MCGILL, Cambridge Springs.
"A charm attends her everywhere-
A sense of beautyg
Care smiles to see her free of careg
Tl1e hard heart loves her unaware,
Age pays her duty."
Lulu is an optimist. It makes you feel good to look at her when she comes
tripping into the class room. The fact that she comes late makes.it al-1 the
better, for there are more for her to cheer. She has taught in the public schools
and knows what she is talking about when she gives the rest of us information
in methods classes.
GLADYS MCINTOSH, Franklin. ,
Gladys' chief ambition is to be a star in Trig class. She believes in being
good to everybody-that is why we love her. Perhaps her greatest virtue lies
in her loyalty to tUncleJ Sam. Many nice things can be said about her, but it
would be hardly fair to leave out any good quality when once we began to name
and space does not permit us to name them all.
WILLIAM T. MQKELVEY, Erie.
"Come, but keep thy wonted state
With even step, and musing gait."
Will is one of those fellows who is never excited and is never in a hurry.
As Manager of the Birch Rod and President of the Athletic Association, Will has
shown his ability as a business man. His motto is: "Don't let your studies
interfere with your Normal School education," and how well he lives up to that
motto only his teachers know. He is by far the most interesting specimen sent
us from Erie where they make a business of raising interesting young people.
FRANCIS MQKINLEY, Meadville.
"Midnight spreads and revelry,
Fancy dance and deviltry." D
McKinley comes to us from Jimtown High, full of life and enthusiastic
over everything but her studies. She is an all-round athlete, a bright and shin-
ing star in basket ball, and some fancy skater. She is the cause of all unneces-
sary disturbances in the Hall after ten and the mere mentio11 of her strikes
terror to the heart of the hall teacher.
HAZEL MQCLAUGHRY, Edinboro.
"A perfect woman. nobly planned,
To warn, to comfort and command.
Hazel is one of those sweet, unassuming girls who improve with acquaint-
ance. In her modest way she has entered our school life and sl1e will hold her
place in all our hearts long after we have given up our places in school. She
is one of the best girl students in the class and would have been on the pro-
gram fcr Commencement day had she not been forced to decline on account oi
ill health. .
ALICE MILLSPAXV, Edinboro.
"She walks in beauty, like the night,
And all t.hat's best of dark and bright,
Of cloudless climes and starry skies
N Meet in her aspect and her eyes."
Our Alice is so quiet and demure you would never imagine she could be
cross, but the children in the Model School would tell you different. VVe expect
great things from her. S-he is a girl from the Edinboro Normal High School and
a girl from old Edinboro. Success to you, Alice.

FREDA MITCHELL, Cooperstown.
"She doeth little kindnesses -
That others leave undone."
Who would dream that behind those quiet, serene looks there is stored a
world of fun! Yet such is the case, for Freda likes a joke as well as any one,
even though it be on herself. Freda delights in tantalizing her friends and
neighbors with tales of, "When I was in Pittsburgh." Her cheerful, amiable
disposition makes her a favorite with all who know her.
JOHN L. MITCHELL, Oil City.
"Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds."
"Mitch," who is one of our most esteemed classmates, is also an active
member of the ancient and highly honored order of "Cooing Doves." John is
not color blind and can tell "White" a half a mile away. John has no heart, he
has given it to another. At the time of this writing he is wearing a badge which
tells the observer that "he is all alone."
SYLVIA MITCHELL, Oil City.
"What's the best thing in the world?
' Something out of it, I think."
Dld you ever see a more sedate little maid? She is particular about every-
thing, even that arithmetic. "I wouldn't think you would do that when you
know better," is a pet expression of hers. She notices the smallest mistake in
arithmetic class and you will often hear her calmly say, "Why did you do that?"
This inquiring turn of mind should gain for her a high position as a school
teacher because that art of finding out what people don't know is an art in
which most school teachers are sadly lacking.
VIOLA MOORE, Cambridge Springs.
"Then-Great Scott, how she did talkli' -
Did you ever hear her talk in Ethics? The longest sentences roll from her
tongue with perfect ease-miles and miles of 'em. You can never get a joke on
her. The girls at Haven Hall have tried in vain. Everyone says she is nice
looking when she doesn't chew gum. But taking it all in all, we couldn't get
along without our Vi and we are glad she- is here.
ELLEN MORGAN, Guys Mills.
"A warm heart is like a beacon light
Shedding its rays upon the wintry deep."
At first we thought Ellen was very meek and docile, but we soon found out
different. She has a temper which is rather exciteable at times. She pummels
her room-mate during study hours, just for fun, of course. She is always ready
to lend a helping hand, however, and we don't mind her temperat all, but think
slre's just the nicest girl we know.

MABEL MORTON, Utica.
"Skin most fair
And far more glorious hairf'
Mabel is always jolly and if asked the reason she would undoubtedly reply
that virtue is her own QreJWard. She is a star in basket ball and caged many
hard ones for us. She always says something back so it's no use trying to get
any jokes on her. She is a member of the Philo Literary Society and for some
reason or other they put her on the program more than is really her share.
Maybe this is because t.hey like to hear her.
KARL UBERT, Union City.
"Tiny" is one of the most popular men in our class, both with the ladies
and with the fellows. He was never known to break rules. If you don't believe
it, ask Mr. Snyder., Karl is a star in athletics as well as in classes. His two
most important rules are: "Never go with more than four girls at one time,"
and, "Never be sent to the ofiice more than four times in one week." Always
willing to help others, regardless of the trouble it may bring upon himself, Obert
has earned for himself the friendship of every fellow at school.
LEPHA PARKER, Warren.
"She talked, she smiled,
My heart she wiled,
S She charmed my soul."
Lepha joined our class last spring and has been a very industrious worker
ever since. We have often wondered why she paid so little attention to the
Edinboro boys, but it was all explained when she received the roses from the
West. And as we bid her farewell, we each one believe she will be a source of
happiness to those around her and will be successful in whatever she undertakes.
LENNA PERRY, Czunbritlge Springs.
Lenna is industrious, but she never burns any midnight oil cramming for
exams. She often says, "Even if I don't like to draw light-houses for Miss
Powell, they are very useful to the sailor boys." Many people talk louder than
she, but mighty few make better class records. She stars in memory work, such
as history and learning poems, and she isn't worrying about having to come
back next year. '
CARRIE PETERS, Czunbriclge Springs.
"Her very frowns are fairer far
Than smiles of other maidens are?
Carrie is the best natured girl in school. She joined us three years ago
and has been on the job ever since. She has one fault, however, she does ,not
always know her own mind. She cannot tell which she likes best, her Lit.
teacher or her Physics teacher. Since Mr. Snyder has become tired of waiting,
We think it might be wise for her to decide on the Lit. teacher and learn every-
thing Mr. La Bounty tells her to.

FLOYD PORTER, Edinboro.
"It's the early bird that catches the worm."
Here is another promising native of old Edinboro. Floyd spends his evening
hours in sleep, but rises with the chickens to get his lessons. He is a worker
and a stayer. There is no yellow in his make-up. I-Ie has had hard luck for
the year of '12 and 'l3. He has been ill several times and this has seriously
interfered with his work, although he has sometimes been seen in classes when
he should have been in bed.
RUTH PROUDFIT. Albion.
"Her voice was ever soft, gentle and sweet, an excellent thing in woman."
Ruth believes in leaving footprints on the sands of time because she has
so lived that she has made deep impressions on some cf our lives. She always
has a kind word and a smile for everybody. The only boy she ever paid any
attention to is Mont, and Mont seems to be more than willing to receive any
attention that may come his way. '
LOUISA PULLING, Edinboro. U
Wanted:-A compound for dissolving work. Louisa is a very quiet girl, on
rare occasions. Her demure look in the class room has made her a general
favorite with the faculty. Her future should be brilliant, but it is impossible
to say which of her numerous talents she will improve. Lots of people like
her and she likes lots of people, so everyone is satisfied.
ANNA QUIRK, Erie.
"In all thy humors, whether grave or mellow,
'l'hou'rt such a touchy, testy, pleasant fellow,
Hast so much wit and mirth and spleen about thee,
There's no living with thee or without thee."
Anna is temperate in all but one of her habits. She drinks coffee! She is
such a nice girl that it seems a shame to have her go to the bad in this way.
We would recommend Cel-grain or Postum as a substitute. We can't help liking
her merry brown eyes even if she is unfortunate in her habits.
ESTELLA REED, Youngsville.
"Oh, Stella's meek, Stella's sweet,
Stella's modest and discreet,
L Stella's rare, Stella's fair,
Stella's every way complete."
One would never dream that Estelle. would take a stroll in study hour, but
some say it is true that she will. She is an earnest worker in Y. W. She
stands well in all her classes, but if she excels in one more than another that
one is Lit.

DONALD RICHEY, Titusville.
Donald is very clever in executing all of his duties in school life. He
ranks high as a loyal member and booster of the senior class. He is well
developed mentally, morally and physically. He uses his strength in the right
manner to help things along and make time pass smoothly. He played a strong
and consistent game of football throughout the season and h's friends know
that he will play as strong and consistently in the game of life.
ALTA RICKARD, Saegertown.
"Serene I fold my hands and wait."
Alta has taught school-that is the reason why she is so dignided. She
studies hard and never does frivalous things, even on Saturday night. When
sl1e does laugh you always notice it is the prettiest laugh you have ever heard.
She has that happy art of being around when she is needed and not being
around when she is not needed.
M ARGARET ROBIN SON, Spartansburg.
"Bobby" is good to look at and pleasant to have around. No crowd that
she is in is ever slow and uninteresting. She is modest but not too modest,
industrious but not too industrious, lively but not too lively. She knows a lot
about some of her studies and a little about all of her studies. She doesn't like
everyone but she considers tl1e feelings of the people she doesn't. like,
EDN.-X ADELLE SAMMONS, Union City.
'Those true dark eyes
Too pure and too honest in aught to disguise
The sweet soul shining through them."
Edna appears quiet to t.hose who do not know her, but intimate friends
appreciate her ready wit and jolly fun and find her always ready to lend a help-
ing hand. Although she does not look like a pedestrian, she and Mabelle walked
home, a, distance of twenty miles, one Saturday after 3:30. She is interested in
her work here and knows more about the real work of teaching than most of
us because she has taught school.
MABELLE SAMMONS, Union City.
Mabelle is Edna's sister and that in itself would be honor enough for most
girls. Not so this ambitious maiden. She must needs win for herself the marks
that show her to be the best girl student in a class which has some seventy-live
or eighty girl members. She never tries to show how much she knows and it
the members of the faculty did not trouble themselves to ask direct questions or
her, they would never know how much studying she really does.
KATE E RYN SAYRE, Randolph.
"She has two eyes, so soft and brown,
She gives a side glance and looks down.
Katheryn is one of our sweet, quiet girls, one whom study could not make
dull nor pleasure wildg one who sees life steady and makes the most of it.
"Oh-o-o-o-o-oh, for the undertaken" she sings when the days grow long. She
isn't a morbid girl either and that sentence is not a desire for death or any
such thing. What it really is you must guess.
CHARLES SCOTT, Albion.
"Some folks they like to brag and blow
And make an awful fuss. A
I'm not that sort I'd have you know,
I illuminate it with the stuff."
Charles has a clear intellect and an abundance of forethought. The trumpet
which Nature attached to him is of wonderful tone and impresses all who hear it.
He spends the bulk of his time in honest work, but shaves off a good slice for
playing jokes, especially on the inhabitants of the Wade Frat.
JOHN SCOTT, JR., Edinboro.
"All the world it smiles on me and I smile back on it."
John is an optimistic, hale fellow well met, popular with the fair sex and
faculty. He is a foot ball player of ability and has an enormously cultivated
gift of gab. He is the only man in the class who won't get sore if we slam him,
so we are doing it to make up for the ones we d0n't dare slam. John's lessons
are always the thorn among the roses for him but he can get them exceedingly
well when he wills. .
MADELEINE SCOTT, Grand Valley.
"And there we sat together when the sun went down."
Madeleine is one of our quiet seniors: she likes to recite best when the
class is limited-to one person. Her hobby is fresh air, and one may always
see her walking on the campus between classes, especially in the springtimeg
indeed her love for country air is so intense that all of her dreams are pictures
of a cottage surrounded by apple trees and hollyhocks.
EDNA SEAVY, Clarendon.
Edna is the best natured girl in school. A girl whomiwe all like and are
happy to have around. She says that she has lots of fun hereg but it is not to
be compared to the times she has while at home in the summer. Smile on,
Edna, there's no harm in it. It just makes the day a little brighter for the poor
individual who is "down in the mouth."

ELIZABETH SIGXVO RTI-I, Tioncsta.
Bess is one of the most loyal members of the new four year course. If you
do not believe it, ask Ruth. She seems to find pleasure in guiding under-class
men. But putting jokes aside, she is a willing worker both in 'her class and
for her class. Whether she will become a ticket agent or a professional
class editor we cannot say, but we know she will be successful anywhere. Bess
is good natured and we all like her.
BELVA SMITH, Cambridge Springs. .
Quiet, sure of herself, never asking help but always ready to give it, Belva
goes about her work with the sort of smile on her face that wins friends and
shows determination. Belva is never tardy and seldom absent when her pres-
ence is required. She is a very lucky girl. She doesn't have to take methods
in grammar at 1:15 when the rest of us are trying to appear interested when in
reality we are too full for utterance. E
FRANCES SMITH, Saegerstown.
Frances is sure that "Books should to one of thcsc four ends conduceg for
wisdom, piety, delight, or use," but as a matter of economic importance she
hccomplishes the four ends even though it means hard work. Her diligence
during study hour and her faithfulness qualify her to be one of "our girls."
She is devoted to her home in Haven Hall, which will be significant in later
years when occasion demands the information. We wish her God-speed in her
noble undertakings and feel sure she will win through perseverence.
KNIGHT SMITH, Edinboro,
"I'm a mighty big man."
Knight is possessed of abnormally developed argumentative ability and
overflows with delight and large words when he can start a. chewing match in
Ethics class. He is the champion of everything that some one else doesn't
believef When it comes to brain, Knight is all there, but he works his brain
overtime to find excuses for not working. He is the sort of fellow who makes
Mr. Baker say that the senior "Dictionary of Faulty,Expressions" is a nuisance.
He is a pretty good fellow and none notices when he does things that are cal-
culated to start a big noise.
RUTH SMITH, Girard.
She is a cheery lass of the new course. At almost any time of day you
may see her strolling blithely on the campus of in the surrounding country.
She has no use for history, but for some inexplainable reason she takes a. great
delight in Knight's tales. She believes in sleigh rides and in senior sleigh rides
in particular. She says she will never change her name and somehow or other
we believe she means it. She believes in proverbs and often repeats: "Hear
the instruction of Mr. Baker and break not his laws."

GLENN STEALDMAN, Conneaut Lake.
Steadman is slim and tall and never in a hurry. He doesn't worry his
brain aboutpthe fair sex-not he. Why, he can work Trig. problems! The only
time he comes away from his books is when there is a base ball game on, and
then hc pokes his head out of the window and whoops for the home team like
a. wild Irishman at a Hibernian picnic. His specialty is training Freshies in
the Way they should go. He is a great private tutor and is probably to blame
for someone's excellent Physics mark. A

"Through days of happiness and mirth L
She plays as if she owns the earth.
Through every swift vicissitude
She plays as if it did her good." '
"Gee, I like music with my meals," says Vere-or if she never said it, she
has thought it many times. She burns lots of midnight oil studying, reading or
writing letters. She is bright in classes, but gets fussed pretty easy. The thing
that she never fusses about is piano playing. She plays as if she could do it as
well if she were asleep as she does awake-it's as natural for her as breathing.
HAZEL STEVENSON, Oil City.
"Of studie took she more care and most hede,
Nought a word spok she more than was nede."
"Steve" first attended California Normal, but she decided that Edinboro
was a better place to stay and for the past two years she has been a member ot
the class of '13. She is a very diligent student, although at times Mr. La Bounty
has found it necessary 'to cry, "Sit down!" "Steve" never does things wrongly
and yet she seems inclined to take life easy.
NINA SWIFT, Albion.
"Tears, idle tears, I know, not what they' mean."
Nina's highest ambition at present is to be a cello player. On clear days
her notes may be heard anywhere in the vicinity of Edinboro. She was much
more interested in the social functions of the school last year than she is this
year. Her soft voice has made her the favorite solo singer of the Normal and
her gentle manners have made her a favorite in social activities.
OLIVE T ERRILL, Edinboro.
"Never trouble trouble until trouble troubles you."
Olive believes in observing study hour and is never sleepy in classes,
not even when she has seen "Madame Don't Care" in Cambridge the night be-
fore. Her chief aim is to be polite at the basket ball games. Milton's Minor
Poems are her favorite reading material.

While very few seem to be familiar with her, very many seem to have a

QUINCEY VINCENT, Utica.
Quincey is the one man in the class who has had, as yet, the courage to
take to himself a wife. Vile congratulate him on his choice and on the
possession of so fine a son. Vincent is an excellent public speaker, a good thinker
and one of the best if not, as we believe, the best, teacher in our class. He has
been a prominent member and a willing worker of the Potter Society. He has,
on different occasions, conducted, for days at a time, both senior and junior
classes in Pedagogy, and always with complete success.
OLIVE XVAITE, Atlantic.
"Studious, oh my, she was studiousf'
Olive is a quiet little girl and likewise a very studious one. She was never
known to leave her room without a book in her hands and one under each arm.
She has a pleasant but musing disposition. The musing is probably due to the
remembrance of certain delightful rides, not in an auto but with Otto. We all
agree that Olive is a very pleasant classmate and a credit to any Normal.
ALICE WALKER, Centerville.
"Compel me not to toe the mark,
Be ever prim and trueg
But rather let me do those things
That I ought not to do."
Since Alice came, people have been inquiring about Centerville as if it
were the hub of the universe. The greater share of Alice's troubles is writing
notes for "The Birch Rod." She has found little time at school to spend at the
piano, but when she does play she makes up for lost time. Was it merely the
architecture of the stone bridge on Normal street that made Alice exclaim, "1
just hate that bridge?"
LAURA IVELLS, Springboro.
Quiet, obliging, smiling, small and small voicedg that is Laura. Her small
voice is usually strong enough to recite her lessons and recite them better than
anyone else in the class, or strong enough to give good debates in society when
occasion so demands.
Her one ambition is to be Richfeyj and she seems to be well on the road
to the realization of that ambition. She doesn't like to have her picture taken,
though. She has one mean habit. She rises early in the morning and plays
tennis-much to Mr. Barns' disgust. 4

"If there were dreams to sell,

Carl is seen at the Normal only when it is necessary for him to be there,
but we see him enough to know that he is a modest chap who attends to his
own affairs. Although we are certain he does not study to excessg we are
impressed with the fact that he has brains when he sees fit to use them.
CHARLES WH1TE, Franklin.
White chooses to be called "Len" by his friendsg and who isn't willling to
call him that? He is a good natured bundle of muscle that you can't help
liking. l-lis athletic record is one of the best in the history of the school. For

"Len," look where there is something doing.

This applies to Clara for didn't we always go to her with our arithmetic

FLORENCE XVHITE, Russell.
"I looked at John, John looked at me."
Florence is a vcry studious girl, though she often shirks her duty and will
go for a stroll when Fate is kind to her. But she says that, after all, her
jolliest times are with the D. D. D. bunch. She is only a little girl, but she can
make an awfully large noise when a mouse comes into view or when there is
a close basket ball game on.

There are all the conventional, nice things one says about every girl to be
said about Heleng but there is one thing about her which may he said of only a
few. She is an ideal room-mate. Most of us are sweet tempered some of the
time and some of us are sweet tempered most of the time, but Helen is one of
the rare girls who are sweet tempered all of the time. .
She is above "dormitory scraps" and has a most sane and calming effect
on a hot-headed freshman who thinks the earth has ceased to turn on its axis
because of a failure in "Readin', Ritin', or Rithmeticf' She is one of the'most
generally loved girls in the Dorm and who knows what we tempestuous ones

What Walt and his red pencil can't do isn't worth mentioning. One can

Wildman is a meek looking chap who has all the outward appearance of a

tried for his subjection, such as spanking, suggested by Mr. Barnes, locking in

unceasingly, as we prance about the hall, or in stolen hops on the gym floor
while the faculty attend a ball. Oratory is her darling, Physics is her pet. And
as for her experiments, she's writing them up yet. When the spring work is

IVIS WOOD, Utica.
"A damsel of high lineage and cheek of apple blossom."
Ivis always wears a sunny smile and always has a cheerful word for those
she meets. She is a very studious girl and has often been known to sit up until
the wee, sma' hours of the morning, studying "Halleck"t'?J We think we know
that the only vegetable Ivis is particularly fond of is the tBeanb and when her
blue eyes grow dark and dreamy, rest assured her dreams are of thisl charms.
Ivis says, none such are found in Edinboro.
The most popular young gentleman in the class, Acker's only rival, and the
only member of the class who never iinds fault with the faculty. He ought to
be the sort of baby who never wakes up at two o'clock in the morning, because
he certainly has all the things that make up baby happiness-a good home, a
capable father, and a fine mother. Vincent is proud of him and so are we. In
return for our affection we want him to graduate from Edinboro Normal when
he's a little older.

The Class of '13 of the New Course! Xlfhat thoughts that magic
phrase arouses in our minds! Those who have followed our career
through Normal smile as they hear its musical intonationsg those who
have taught us heave a vast sigh at the uneasy pangs we have cost them,
but one and all, our friends, enemies and teachers, confess our "great-
ness" and appreciate our efforts.
The time is drawing near when we, as students, must, in order to go
out into the world and- impart our knowledge, leave this beautiful campus,
imposing buildings and all that is clear to us. As we look back to that one
thing which gave us the greatest pleasure, we at once see the date of our
coming to E. S. N. S., Sept. -, 1911. It was then that ,seven of us met
to spend two of the most pleasant years of our life together. Along in
the VVinter and Spring terms, our numbers were increased by three more
girls. Ten girls, and only girls, now compose the Senior Class in the
During our first year here, we enjoyed such good times as only ten
happy, light-hearted and contented girls could do. iAlthough our num-
bers are few, and some, especially one, are very small, still we have proofs
to show that it was to us that persons of judgment looked for pupils of
ability and executive power. lfVas it not from us that one of the first
commencement speakers was chosen? Did we not contribute officers for
the Y. XV. C. A., for the different societies and for basket ball? Notwith-
standing these side issues, we have been able to keep up our.. other stand-
ard of work. The other Seniors say we have nothing to do, but very
reliable members of the Faculty sympathize with us, and earnestly declare
we should have fewer subjects.
N ow when we pass from school life into life's school, may we leave
some small measure of influence behind us which may encourage our
successors in the New Course.

The College Preparatory Course is one of the many new progressive
lields that have been recently thrown open to the Normal Schools of this
State, and as our "Alma Mater" is one of the most up-to-date Normal
Schools in the country, the new course of study was immediately in-
stalled. This course is unique, general and broad, directly preparing all
who enter for any of the large universities or colleges. The Preparatory
Course was formally announced in the "School Bulletin" two years ago,
following which many applications for admittance were made. This
course, it may be clearly understood, is not for delinquents of any kind,
and is, so far, not composed of any.
' The present graduates of this class have the unique distinction of
being the first class to have completed all assigned subjects required for
the Preparatory Diploma. The best representative material in the
school is to be found in this class: "Pete" Graham, "The Athlete gl' VV.
Marsh, 'lThe Philosopher 3" f'Cupid" Acker, "The Student of Distinc-
tion and Special Mention Q" "Pea-W'ee" Xllildman, "The Orator and Es-

'Ghe lbtta, '13
Scattered here and there among the throng of students who came to
the Normal about the fifth of September could be seen the bright smiling
faces of the distinguished members of the first junior Class under the
XVhen a few days had elapsed, they found that they had so much
work to accomplish that it seemed as if they were enveloped in a cloud of
darkness. Their ambition soon caused all clouds to disperse and hence
they found time to hold a class meeting, about two weeks after registra-
tion, and elected the following officers: President, Harold G. Hoodg
Vice-President, Esther Averill, Secretary, Edith Randall g Treasurer,
Gerald Babcockg Editor, Regina M. Biemer 3 Assistant Editor, Grace M.
The greatest event of the year was the entertainment given by the
Juniors I-Iallowe'en on which even the Seniors were heard to comment
favorably. This was given in the gym. The guest, on entering, found
himself immediately in an intricate and winding passage. After trying
his best to stumble through and to escape from the ghosts and other
unearthly people, he was gently assisted over the last moving floor and
thence directed to the check room. As soon as all the guests were assem-
bled, those who were either masked or in costume took partfin the grand
march. Many funny, interesting and peculiar costumes were exhibited.
It afforded much amusement to both old and young. Afterward everyone
unmasked and partook heartily of the refreshments which were then
served. The program for the evening met with the deep approval of the
people. Une of the chief events was the prize-fight between E. S. N. S.
and Thiel, in which Hood distinguished himself as the champion.
In the early Fall, Athletics claimed the attention of the class. In
foot ball the boys displayed their skill and endurance while the girls urged
them on with their songs and yells from the side lines. During the
VV inter term, both girls and boys starred in basket ball. The boys were
esecially fine, showing their training and enthusiasm by winning the cup.
The games were very exciting, and the Seniors, gathering all the courage
and surplus strength that they possessed, tried their best to' win, but the
Juniors were too much for them. They firmly held their ground and won
the cup while the Seniors slowly and sadly left the floor. The champions
of the school and of Class 1914 were Captain Green, Goodrich, XVebster,
Gbe IDHZH, '13
Hayes, Blakeslee, Babcock. They were assisted in this undertaking by
Hood and Mattews. '
The girls also played a good game. Although not victors, they lost
the cup by only a few points. This in no way discouraged the team, but
added new life and spirit. Greater success will surely be theirs next year.
A number of new students joined us in the Spring term. They gave
us their hearty co-operation and their spirit is beyond reproach.
The juniors give promise of great things. They are a class whose
ambitions are high and there is not the slightest doubt but that all their
fond hopes will be realized in the near future. Q

In the Fall of 1911, the fifty-lirst year of our noble Alma Mater's
career, she received with a welcome hand her nrst Freshman Class under
the four-year course.
ACT I, SCENE I.
On September 12, this class first made its appearance in Edinboro
and was satisfied to be called Freshman. Only a few days after nits
arrival it 1net in Room K to organize and elect oflicers, realizing that
every body of people must have a leader, and he, helpers: President,
Paul Harvey, Vice-President, Mildred XVilliamsong Secretary, Esther
Averill, Treasurer, Silvan Hilliard, Editor,1Fay Daley.
This class soon took to school activities and soon became interested
in athletics, and as a result put one of the best ends on the foot ball
squad. They did not stop at this, but put up a good basket ball team, and
supplied live men on the base ball line-up.
And each and every member of this class went out i11 the Spring glad
to say he was a member of the Class of 1915 and considering it an
honor to be called one of the Freshmen of 1912.
ACT II, SCENE I.
September 2, 1912, found the same students back again with a great
many new ones,-all determined to make the first Sophomore Class in
Edinboro State Normal School one long to be remembered.
They held their iirst class meeting on September 9, discussed the
problems which confronted them, and elected the following officers to lead
this class through its year of prosperity: President, john Harbaugh,
Vice-President, Florence Harvey, Secretary, Ethel Howland 5 Treasurer,
Harry Hummerg Editor, Fay Daley, Assistant Editor, Marjorie XVade.
After this, foot ball called the attention of some members of the
class, and the class is proud to say it was well represented upon the
varsity squad and had material to turn out one of the best teams the
school will produce in future years.
On October 5, the Sophomores enjoyed their annual outing to Green
Point, which eve11t will not soon be forgotten by any participant.
Then came an interval of study with few pleasures Qexcept the
nieaslesj until Christmas time, when the Senior Class was so kind as to
present them with a book of "Advice,,' for which they were very grateful.

ILXCT II, SCENE II.
Everyone was back and registered on january 2, 1913, ready for work
Things ran smoothly until the spirit of basket ball was aroused and
again this class was up and doing. The varsity received two of its men
this time. As to class basket ball it was well represented and finished
the season, although playing against odds and in hard luck.
Also in other lines of school activities they have played an important
part both in the society hall and on the chapel stage. 1
lVhen the Spring term opened with base ball, it was found the Sopho-
more Class was still on the job and put a goodly number on the team.
Last of all, but not least, this class is again proud to say it. is the first
class under the four-year course to adorn the campus with a tree on
It might be said that although the Sophomore Class is the smallest
in numbers, it certainly makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity, and
it will take a very strong microscope to tind a better class, for
The Senior Class is too sedate,
The Juniors are a fright,
The Freshmen are so very green,
But the Sophomores are alright.

On September 3, 1912, the members of the second Freshman Class
in the history of Edinboro State Normal School began to arrive in Edin-
boro from all parts of the surrounding country. For many, coming away
from home to school was a new experience. To some, many if not all
the others, were strangers, and since one is never so much alone as when
surrounded by strangers, the sad, lonely faces of the F reshmen, as they
went to and from their classes intent on. their duties, were not to be
wondered at during the first weeks. They were determined at least not to
fail where they were right. But this did not last long. They soon be-
came acquainted with their classmates, their teachers, and the members
of the other classes, and the expression on their faces changed to one of
happiness, content and coniidence in themselves.
Class' meetings, which were as new thing to some, were held and
ofiicers were elected. Their first piece of bad luck was the loss of their
class president, then of their vice-president, but their places were speedily
filled by other worthy members of the class. At the beginning of the
lVinter term, again the Fates were against them,-their secretary was
unable to return. So another election was held.
The Freshman showed themselves interested and active in athletics.
It was the Freshman Class that won the banner awarded by the Athletic
Association to the class having the largest average attendance at the foot-
ball games during the Fall term. By proving themselves able and willing
workers, they soon won a place in the aifections of their teachers and
established a record which promises a bright future for the Class of 1916.
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed
To see such line sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Among the body of students who appeared at our school in the fail
of IQI2, to answer the call of the bell, was a small number that was des-
tined to be the iirst class of the soon to be renowned Edinboro Normal
Business College. This class, though small in numbers, soon made itself
known, and roused the ire of the other classes by the noise they caused in
During the fall term they were so taken up with the great work that
they did not pause to organize a class, but at the beginning of the winter
term there came an increase in numbers and they thought of bringing
themselves into public notice as a class. A meeting was called and officers
were elected. Now that the class was organized, they gave to the class
the same spirit that they had given to their work, and soon entered on
equal footing with the other classes in athletics and other contests.
Each member of the class is pressing hard toward the top of the
ladder of fame, and will some time become a strong man or woman. F or,
are they not so industrious that the janitor has to force them from the
building at tive o'clock? Their ambition even carries them so far that
the principal announced in chapel that they were working too hard, and
they must take better care of their health. "This cannot be said of any
So with their unsurpassable ambition, not even the most imaginative
people can predict what their future attainments will be.

Our coach, Richard F. Hays, comes to us from "The Normal School
of Physical Education,', located at Battle Creek, Michigan. His home is
at Northampton, Mass., and previous to his graduation at Battle Creek
he had been graduated from Northampton Business College and had
attended Northampton High School for three years.
XVhile at Battle Creek Mr. Hays made for himself a very enviable
record as an athlete. He was a football half back, a basketball guard and
center, a baseball iirst and third baseman, and a track man in the sprints
and relay. For two years he was captain of the basketball team, 110 mean
honor, considering the fact that the team held the intercollegiate cham-
pionship for the State of Michigan during one year of his captaincy.
XV ith this sort of a record nothing but success is to be expected.
Starting successive seasons with new recruits, Mr. Hays has developed
teams that were winning teams by the end of each season. He has devel-
oped, along with his varsity squads, second teams of good ability,insuring
better teams for 1913-I4 than have been in school in the year just ended.
ltle understands every phase of the games he coaches and knows how to
tell others what he knows and then make them do what he can do. His
executive ability is of a high order and he is possessed of a moral courage
that is unusual. He does not hesitate to remove players or to do other
things that he believes are for the good of the team, even in the face of
opposition. He is a man, and all those who are in any way connected with
Ediuboro State Normal are sincerely glad that he is to have charge of
our athletics next year.

The season of nineteen twelve was probably the most successful
season of football ever played at Edinboro. Starting with but five experi-
enced players, two of whom were hurt and disabled in the first two
games, Mr. Hays developed a team that was stronger, by the end of the
season, than any team, except one, that it had met during the season. The
first game of the season was an overwhelming victory for Edinboro. The
second was lost by a fiuke and johnson and XVhite were seriously hurt.
lVith three players out of the game, the third, fourth and fifth games
were lost by large scores. The sixth game was lost by one point. In the
seventh game of the season, against Thiel College, Edinboro again lost,
but this time by a score of 6-o. The Thiel team is the only team played
that was really stronger than ours and that could not have been defeated
by our team at the close of the season. The last game of the season was
exceedingly close and resulted in a victory for us.
XVe won two games of eight-not ia very imposing record from a
standpoint of scores, but the thing that we are proud of is that the team,
although losing, was well supported, and that we turned a losing team into
a winning team after the middle of the season. To Mr. Hays is due the
credit of keeping a team worthy of the name in the field and to him is
due the credit for the development of several Ufindsf as Green, Har-
baugh, Shriver and DC.Al'111El1t.
XV ard DeRemer is an excellent all-round player. His coolness and
disregard for danger fitted him for his position at tackle and made him an
ideal captain. He is the sort of fellow who hits the line hardest when the
score is going against him. He shows flashes of speed that are amazing
in a man of his weight and build. His broad shoulders will be missed
from the line next year.
Len lllhite is as fast a half back as Edinboro ever had. His play
shows dash and vigor and put life into a team. XYhite was one of the
unfortunates last year. He was hurt early in the season and greatly
hampered in his playing, although he stayed with the team nearly the
Neil Mathews is one of the finds of the season. He weighs only one
hundred and fifty pounds, but he is a full back who hits the line hard and
low and with as much effect as many a heavier and stronger man. He
should be one of the most reliable men on next year's team.
Pug: one l1.:l:n'r:?11 six
one mira, '13
Marley Leach is an exceedingly good half back. He began the season
ai. his old position, end, but was soon moved to the back field. He under-
stands that peculiar smashing, twisting gait that is hard to tackle and
dangerous to block. XV e would liked to have seen Marley and Len work
together in the back field all season, but injuries to both prevented.
Howard Green. our one-hundred-and-lifteen-pound vest-pocket edi-
tion of a quarter back, played one of the coolest thinking games on the
team. He could slip through a tiny hole and make unbelievably swift
progress down the Held when it became necessary. 'iBaby" ought to be
a worthy successor of DeRemer as captain next year.
Dean Shriver is an exceptionally strong end. He is one of those
stocky chaps who are amazingly swift of foot and who have no respect at
all for hard knocks. His specialty is banging through the line and break-
ing up plays that have hardly started. He will be in school next year, a
fact that should be of interest to football fans.
For a man who had never played football before, Don Rickey made
a remarkable record. He was on the line-up for the iirst game of the
season and never missed a single game or a part of a single game after
that. He held his position at guard without being in danger of losing it
at any time and he worked as hard all the time as if he 1night lose it at
Roy DeArment is a player who is very rarely excelled in his position,
at center. He mastered the spiral pass that so few centers can master.
He has all the lighting qualities of the back Held man and all the weight
and endurance of the line man.
Charlie Marsh slides i11to his position with the same movement that
a panther uses in crouching, and when he starts he always goes straight
ahead. His yellow hair came to be the terror of opposing guards in about
the third quarters and many are the times that this same brilliant signal
has brought joy to Edinboro hearts.
"Skin" Obert is the heaviest man who played on last year's team.
He isn't fat, as you might think the first time you looked at him: he is two
hundred pounds of grinding, pounding muscle. His regular position is
tackle, but he could do things in the back field as he demonstrated.
Pete Graham is one of the best ends we saw this year. Although he
is small, he is a strong tackler. He never failed to play stronger against
an opposing team than in practice. Visiting teams often made mistakes
because of Pete's size, or rather, lack of size, and tried to put plays
around him. Most of these teams are mourning yet. '

Arthur johnson was one of the men who played on last year's team,
and he certainly can play football. His specialty was a line buck, and the
five touchdowns that he made in the Cambridge game prove that he had
the goods. If Arthur had not been knocked out in the second game, he
would have been one of the best full backs that was ever at Edinboro.
Hubert Bently was one of the guards. Hubert likes the game and
puts into it all he has, and he certainly can break up plays through his
Harold Hood has football grit, although he is not very large. His
opponents feared him and his game at half back was always consistent.
Fred Jewell played half back. lVhat he lacked in weight he made up
in speed. Fred was one of the slipperiest men on the team. N
John Harbaugh has the real football spirit. John's regular position
is center, but on the varsity he played guard. .
Ralph Skelton played guard. Nothing gave Ralph more pleasure
than to rush through the opponents' line and make a flying tackle.

BASKETBALL TEAM, 1913
v 'Cihe lbita, '13
The school year at Edinboro is divided into three terms. Each term
has its representative form of athletics. The winter term is the shortest
of the three and seems much shorter than it really is because every Satur-
day night there is a basketball game, and, of all sports, basketball is the
most thoroughly appreciated and the most heartily supported of any at
Edinboro. The season of IQI3 was made up of eleven very interesting
games, of which Edinboro won tive. Len XVhite was elected captain by
last year's team but was injured in the fourth game of the season and
was forced to stop playing. Pat Proudfit was then elected floor captain,
a position which he filled well for the balance of the season. Mr. Hays
won the respect of all the boys at the beginning of the season. They
soon learned what it meant when a voice from the corner of the gym said,
"Make it fast," or, "Show them what a small man can do." Mr. Hays
is well posted on all forms of athletics, but the fellows who went on trips
say he knows most about roughhouse.
Wfhite, our sky-slapper, performed equally well on the floor or in the
air. It seemed to matter little to him whether he touched anything sub-
stantial or not. He played one of the hardest games of the team and it is
doubtless due to this fact that he was hurt in the fourth game, making it
necessary to elect a new captain.
Big john Harbaugh, XVhite's successor at center, played a game that
was remarkable mainly for its strength. At times he played a surpris-
ingly fast game and passed and shot with the dexterity of a veteran. His
great physical strength and his power of endurance will make something
to build around next year.
Dean Shriver is another man of interest. He is our Tom Thumb
guard. He proved that it is a fact that good goods are done in small
packages. "So is poison," says a Slippery Rock forward. Shriver has
lots of nerve and muscle and plays fast, clean basketball. He is a Sopho-
more, so it looks as though Edinboro would have a good guard for at
least two more years.
Marley Leach is undoubtedly our star guard. He is a basketball
shark and, indeed, a shark in all forms of athletics. He gets slightly
angry sometimes when some one steps on his toes or gives him the elbow,
but on the whole he is pretty quiet-tempered and plays steady ball. He
lost fewer baskets than any other guard of the season and he could, on
Page one Imndreri Ihirtccn
U b 6 ID it 8 , I 3
occasion, get into team work or go down the floor like a Hash and cage
one on his own accou11t.
Pat Proudht was the main spoke in the wheel. He has been termed
a greased whirlwind and other things equally suggestive of speed. His
individual work was of a high order, but he never let individual work
interfere with team work. He filled his position as floor captain very ably
a11d often we heard a voice, that we rarely heard above a whisper at any
other time, give orders in an extremely loud tone.
Pete Graham is a regular villain when it comes to stealing shots that
no man had any business getting. Pete's shots almost always counted,
too. He can iight or make love, according to the temperament of his
opponent, but he'd a little rather play basketball than do either. He never
gets hungry when there is a basketball in sight. He will go down in
history as one of the smoothest players and surest shots Edinboro ever
Neil Mathews is an all-round player. At one time and another dur-
ing the season he has played every position on the team with almost equal
success. He is probably a little better at forward than at any other posi-
tion, but that is hard to decide. Because of his consistent game and cool-
ness he was chosen captain of next year's team.
Skin Obert showed an ability to pass and play tl1e floor that was fast
and strong. His weight gives him an advantage over lighter men in some
rcspedts and his nimbleness of foot equals that of many smaller players.
When Ob went into the game it always strengthened the team.
Jerry Hood has fits. They are usually profitable fits and always add
points. He is a good forward and a fine guard. His floor work is of a
high order and his hard shots are of a sort very seldom seen. l-le should
be a star forward next year.

BASEBALL TEAM. 1913
MN MY wq g Ebe lDita, '13
The outlook at the beginning of the baseball season was extremely
discouraging. There were a number of old players out for the team, but
there was no man who had had previous experience as pitcher. During
the first few weeks, Patterson and Shriver developed rapidly and pitched
really good ball. At the end of the Hrst month, Ross, last year's pitcher,
returned to us. The team, thus reinforced, is on its way to perfection
and very little doubt is felt that the season will end favorably. Drake
and Obert, last year's catchers, are still in school, and XVelker is still on
first base. DeRe1ner and llfhite are in the outfield. The remainder of the
men, except Ross, are new men at Edinboro, but some show exceptional
ability as baseball players. ,
Drake was chosen captain just after the first game and shows as
good ability as executive as he shows as catcher or second baseman.
Manager Daley has a schedule of eleven games, six of, which are to be
played at home and the remaining live abroad. But four games have thus
far been played and of these four Edinboro has lost three. However, we
are all looking forward to better luck when the team takes the Held again
strengthened as it is. Mr. Hays gives his individual attention to training
his team and is always on the field himself. He knows the game thor-
oughly and is developing excellent team work. If the team does not win
he certainly will not be to blame for the losing.

The true aim of the Y. XV. C. A. is well expressed in a remark made
by a student after her return from one of the weekly meetings. The
remark was: "I have felt more at home to-night than I have at any other
time since I have been here." To make the girls feel at home is what the
Y. XV. C. A. is trying to do and we believe it is succeeding.
No small amount of credit for the success in this work is due to Miss
Powell who has faithfully helped the girls in all their activities and has
always been ready with a kind word and a pleasant smile to encourage
all the homesick girls and bring themback to health and happiness.
The weekly devotional meetings have been an inspiration and joy
to all who have attended. These little services of praise and song, in
which each has felt free to join, cannot but have had an ennobling and
purifying influence upon the life of every girl. And we are glad it has
been so, for no education is complete unless it stands for spiritual as well
as mental development.
As the girls of the Class of '13 leave the Association, they are glad
to say with all reverence and sincerity, "It has been good to be here."

The first Christian Association organized in this school was founded
in the year 1868 by Miss Celia Sherman, who was then a teacher here.
The meetings were held in Normal Hall on Sunday evenings and con-
ducted along lines similar to our Students' Prayer Meetings. In connec-
tion with this, the only function was daily prayer meetings held at differ-
ent places on the campus. This continued until the year 1883 when the
,attendance became so large it was found necessary to divide the society
and it was at this time that the Young Men's and Young NVomenis Chris-
tion Associations were first separately organized.
On April 24 of the year 18933, the Constitution that we now have
was accepted and cabinet officers were elected, Edward Smith being
President. At the close of the same year, new oflicers were elected, Mr.
F. NV. Perry being chosen President. In the year 1893, while John A.
Smith was President, the iirst Young Men's and Young lVomen's re-
ception was given to the new students.
In the year 1896, the lirst move was made toward sending delegates
to Young Men's Christian Association conventions held in different
cities. Luther Conroe was President that year and the Association was
comparatively large and prosperous.
The year 1898 marked the first appearance of a Young Men's Asso-
eiation Student Secretary at our school, also three delegates were sent to
the Student Volunteer Convention held at Cleveland. Wfalter Straw-
Puge one lmndrvd tlzirty-sr'-:wsu

bridge was then President and at the end of the fall term Luther Conroe
was again elected.
During the year 1901-02 the Association did very good work under
the leadership of one of our most competent and most loved teachers of
today, Herman Sackett. Every department of the Association was doing
unusually good work. One of the reasons why Mr. Sackett proved to be
such a successful leader was that he was able to attend the Presidents'
Convention at Gettysburg in 1901.
For the next six years the President's chair was filled by teachers of
our school. as XVilliam C. Myers, Frank XV. Goodwin and Ora M. Thomp-
son. But in the year IQCQ it was thought advisable to elect students fol
cabinet officers, so Mr. C. F. Adamson was chosen as President with Pro-
fessor Thompson as Adviser. At this time the membership was about
seventy-five, Bible study classes were successfully held and the Asso-
ciation appeared to be in a Hourishing condition. Mr. Adamson attended
the President's Convention held at Lancaster, Pa., that year and events
showed the wisdom of having the Presidents attend these Conventions.
At the close of the winter term of this year, new officers were elected,
when Mr. Xllallace Mallery was chosen President. Mr. Mallery attended
the Presidents' Conference held at State Colllege, receiving great beneiits
from it. Mr. Mallery proved to be a very capable leader for our Asso-
The Middle Year Classof 191 1 furnished a very competent, enthusi-
astic cabinet for the Association. Mr. Cyrus Quick, Presidentg Claude
Whittenberger, Vice-Presidentg Frank McEntire, Secretaryg Howard
Green, Treasurer. Mr. Quick could not find it convenient to attend the
Presidents' Conference, but he proved a capable leader without the
training he could have received there. Bible study classes were organized
in the church for the town boys and one in Reeder Hall for the dormitory
boys, with Mr. Siddell as teacher.
At the close of the winter term of 1912, an election was held, when
Charles Scott was elected President, Donald Richey, Vicee-President:
Charles Marsh, Secretary: Marley Leach, Treasurerj for the ensuing
year. The President had the privilege of attending the Presidents' Con--
ference held at Dickenson College, Carlisle, which proved very beneficial
to him in many ways. The present membership of the Association is
about sixty. The Bible study class in Reeder Hall is still in charge of 1Mr.
Siddell and proves a great help tothe boys of the dormitory. Mr. Fay
Daley was sent to the Student Volunteer Convention held at New
lYilmington, November last.

On the Ioth of june, 1912, we, the students of the manual training
department, assembled in the manual training rooms to form an associa-
tion, the object of which was to offer better facilities for manual culture
and to promote skill, fellowship, and morality. XV e elected the following
officers: President, john Harbaughg Secretary, Ethel Case, Treasurer,
Helen Bathurst. A committee was appointed to form a Constitution,
which it did the following day.
Of course we had many difficulties to overcome, but a body of such
industrious people soon overcame these.
On the evening of june 14, 1912, we held a banquet in the library,
using our own furniture. The two gold prizes, which were offered earlier
in the year by the Hon. Clinton D. Higby for the best specimen of manual
art, were awarded to the prize winners, Miss Lucille Marsh and Mr. Fay
Daley. As everybody present enjoyed themselves so immensely, it was
decided that we hold an annual event of this kind. This being near the
close of the school year, we laid down our axe and maul until the begin-
ning of the following school year.
Early in the fall we returned, pleased to find that our department
had been remodeled. New equipments had been furnished, such as two
electric dynamos, a large band saw, iron turning lathe and a complete
lighting system. Xlfith these we progressed more rapidly than ever. In
another meeting which we held, we decided to give an entertainment every
term, but through a mistake we failed to get the Allegheny Glee Club
which we had scheduled. At the close of the winter term, we decided to
hold a monthly social hour for the benefit of entertainment and the study
of manual art.
XY e sincerely hope that the State Board will be able to say better ot
our exhibit this coming spring term than they did last year, that it is not
only the best in the State but the best in the United States.

Twenty-seven energetic children, true, loyal Philos every one of
them, were the proud family of the dear old society at the beginning of
the school year in September, IQI2. Since then the happy number has
increased to an active membership of loo.
So keen has been the interest, that not once has the Society taken
time to sleep during the whole year. Success of an unusual character
has marked every activity.
Debates that a XVebster could not compete with and oratory such as
Demosthenes never dreamed of, became a common occurrence at the
rendering of each program. And the Nightingale, chancing to soar near
Philo Hall, filling the atmosphere with his melodic strains, has often
ceased his song in amazement that he should have a rival, hearing the
sweet voice of some Philo maiden pulsating its notes through the evening
XVho has not had his heart thrilled after listening to the Philo Or-
chestra? The Society takes special pride in this orchestra, 11ot only
because of its excellent work and accomplishments, but also because it is
the only one at the Normal.
Philo has further distinguished herself by being the victorious society
in the Philo-Potter contest that took place in November.
After the contest, the contestants, crowned with the glory that they
had brought to their society were ushered to the Hall, where they were
made guests of honor at a banquet given in true Philo style.
XV ho has not known the benefits that spring
Like plants from virgin soil, his work to crown,
Has never been a Philo, and has missed
Besides what comes from genial fellowship
The cultivation of those faculties
That give the soul expression through the ilps,
Enabling him unconsciously to speak
His deepest thoughts in simplest eloquence.
And, too, is born its lessons to instil
A sense of honor, faithful to a trust
Philo and loyalty walk hand in hand,
Sacred the bonds that bind them each to each!
Exponent to the world of that great truth
In unity alone lies strength and worth.

Although the editor of the Vita of nineteen hundred and thirteen is
a member of the Philo Everett, one of the very lirst organizations that
he thought deserved a prominent place in the year book was the Potter
Literary Society. The Potter Society has the honor of attaching to its
name the fact that it is the oldest organization in the school, being founded
in the year 1862. The object of the society was to secure and cultivate
that requisite of a successful teacher, literary culture, and it has certainly
kept this object in mind all of these iifty-one years, making it possible to
say that its record has advanced each year.
Potter Hall is still at the right as you enter old Business Hall simply
because it will not take the wrong. The hall is nearly the same as it has
been for some time, still holding its luster of red that gleams forth with
such intensity and enthusiasm, a true characteristic of its members and
work. QRed means dangerj not true in this case, as visitors never fear
to visit our home and not only to visit it but to join our ranks. For all
records that can be found the membership for the fall term of 1912 and
winter term of 1913 is the greatest ever known in the history of the
society, and if the membership still increases at the present rate, it is felt
that another surgical operation will have to be performed as that when
the scion, Philo, was cut off which was comprised of undesirable Potters
and those who wished to experiment. fOf course it won second place.j
How could it help it when born of such an illustrious parent. '
Now we, as Seniors of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirteen,
leave you, Honorable Potter, under capable jurisdiction and hold faith
that you will continue to be topmost. Listen! XV hat you hear is the echo
of that 1913 call, "Don't give up the ship."

Late in the spring of IQI2 the staff of editors of "The Birch Rod"
for the next year was selected. This staif was Charles Marsh, Donald
Richey, Hubert Bentley, Alice XValker, David McGuire, lVilliam Mc-
Kelvey and john Harbaugh. McGuire was unable to return to school
and Helen llfhiting was chosen to iill his place.
Early in the winter term the board of editors seems to have enter-
tained some idea of hibernating, for 110 paper appeared until the middle
of February. Then enthusiasm aroused in mass meetings put out the
regular February fourteen number and Marsh's energy followed it with
a special lVashington and Lincoln number. The paper appeared regu-
larly after that time and on two diHerent occasions other special num-
bers were printed. These specials were largely due to Marsh's industry.
The board for next year was chosen on the 7th day of May. Its
members are Erma Gebhardt, Arnold Nelson, Carlyn Blakeslee, Lucy
Lamb, Ethel Howland, Fay Daley, John Harbaugh and Jerome Ruster-
holtz. The First paper put out by the new board is to go to press at about
the same time as the Vita, so what next year's "Birch Rodn will be is only
a matter of conjecture. From the records of the members of the staff
it should be a good one. The new board has the good wishes and sym-
pathy of the old board,

Repetition of the annals of the Edinboro Normal School is here
almost gratuitous. To record in any adequate or pertinent detail the
chronicle of her progress through fifty-two years or to depict with faith-
fulness the significance of her life and achievement cannot be attempted
in these pages, and in the historical sketches that former editions of this
book have presented, the outlines of the story have repeatedly been given.
At best a moderate decanting of old wine into new bottles is all that we
can here essay, referring the casual reader, who may be curious for more
extended information, to previously published accounts.
On the twenty-First day of January, 1861, the Edinboro Academy,
founded four years before by the citizens of the village, and conducted
successively by Mr. J. R. Merriman and Mr. James Thompson, was
formally recognized by the State of Pennsylvania as the State Normal
School of the Twelfth District. During the period of the Civil lVar
immediately following, the young institution led a rather precarious exist-
ence. The patriotism of her students, who enlisted almost to a man in
the service of their country, emptied the class-rooms, financial stringency
prevailed. Supporters of the school had suffered serious loss in the
general destruction of crops by "the frost" of 1859, and the situation was
depressing in the extreme. The resignation of the Principal at this critical
period threatened to end the troublous existence of the scarcely organized
school, when a young graduate of Yale College offered to undertake the
direction and management of the somewhat dubious enterprise.
The coming of this man, T. A. Cooper, gave the school a new lease
of vigorous life and for thirty-one years his ability and personality made
Edinboro a household word in its district, and a wellknown name through-
out and even beyond the State. Year by year the influence of Edinboro
widened and her efficiency increased. Scores of men and women in posi-
tions of trust and honor in every field of human activity look back grate-
fully to Edinboro, where, in their formative years, the foundations of
their success were laid, and acknowledge the efficient training for human
service there received. . C
if Principal Cooper retired in 1892, and was succeeded by Mr. Martin
Benedict, who four years later accepted an appointment as Professor of
Pedagogy in State College. Mr. T. R. Flickinger C85, Princetonj was
Page one hundred eighty-aight -
'Che lliita, '13
the next Principal and remained at the head of the school until 1899,
resigning to accept the Principalship of the Central Normal School at
Lock Haven. His successor was Mr. J. F. Bigler, who came to Edinboro
from the Superintendency of Venango County, in which office he was
serving his third term. His administration covered the twelve years from
1899 to 1911.
The present head of the school, Mr. Frank E. Baker CO5, Allegheny,
and '08, Harvardj was sometime Principal of the Greensburg CPa.j High
School and for the two years preceding his coming to Edinboro had been
head of the Science Department in Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. Dur-
ing the two years of his administration he has wisely planned, consistently
executed and successfully achieved, and the New Edinboro, largely of his
making, stands forth, as the school song has it, '
"Never fairer, never statelier than now."
