PRESIDENT IDO FRANKLIN MEYER
Today, even more, if possible, than ever before, you are in the heart and
mind of every loyal Ellsworthian! For a long time the writer has wondered
what should be the controlling motives and principles in human life and conduct.
And it is clear that you are now giving a r.ea1 demonstration, in a most vital
way, of some of those things that should be found in any true life.
' How distinctly are the ideals of sincerity, truth, honor, loyalty and service,
now brought home to the heart of hearts of each of us who think of your present
consecration and high devotion to a great cause! You reveal those qualities of
personality, little thought of by you or others, in times of ordinary peace, but, in
emergency and need these virtues are the very substance of the soul itself. They
fill you with valor. In the quenchless fires of love, they make you fearless in
the performance of every duty whether at the quiet fireside of the home-hearth
in the army camp, or upon the field of battle. In great crises is the testing of
"Now must the man be summoned forth
To discover himself, his dual reality,
His world, ten thousand fathoms deep,
His star-vault, ten thousand spaces high,
And come to his own like a king."
Over, and over again one reads that the men in the trenches under the stress
of imminent danger feel that God is with them and understands all about it.
This gives an indescribable sense of peace, and fearlessness. One who has never
experienced such hours of great testing can hardly understand such testimony.
However, one thing you may be assured of: your Alma Mater, and all those
who love the work it is doing, do fervently pray and fondly hope that your great
adventure may see the overthrow and destruction of that thing in human society,
which would exploit the natural rights of the many in order to confer special
privileges on the few.
Doubtless. you will have need for all the reserve power that you gathered
during the years spent in study and preparation for life and its rapidly changing
situations. May you know, also, how daily to draw upon the Infinite Source of
power that gives vital and permanent victory. May you be able to realize this,
not alone'in trial and distress, but, also, in the quiet hour, in peace, and in vic-
tory. Dr. Josiah Strong says, "God is not going to be beaten in the great conflict
of the ages. The very stars in their courses fight with him against the world's
evils, which have their day, but have their doom, uttered alike by reason and
revelation, by science and faith." May your faith never falter even in the
One of our best beloved poets makes us see that only of a universe that pre-
serves its moral gains, and resolves to harmony the dissonance of its inequalities
can justice be asserted. How often have these lines put courage into men's
hearts: ' - f
"Right forever on the scaffold,
Wrong forever on the throne,
But that scaffold sways the future,
And behind the dim unknown
Standeth God within the shadow,
Keeping watch above His own."
Because right, in the long run of the years, must always overcome wrong,
right must prevail. Never has the issue been more sharply and clearly set forth
than in the present world struggle. You have the immortal honor to put your
bodies, minds and spirits between the oppressor and the oppressed, to thwart the
sword and the iron heel of tyranny in their work of cruelty, injustice ,and griev-'
ous wrong! May you have the victory! You must have the victory! You will
have the victory! '

HAROLD C- BlNGl-IAM
FIRST LIEUTENANT SANITARY CORPS, N. A.
Following the Spanish-American war there appeared a popular song featur-
ing "The man behind the gun." The picture which this song aroused in my
young mind may have been a poor representation of the real theme, yet there
was an irresistible suggestion of men feverishly operating in battle an old two-
wheeled cannon of the sort used in past wars.
A limited knowledge of present day tactics has caused another idea partially
to replace that earlier picture. The man behind the gun now belongs to a
different army than the fighting man. He is only one of thousands in the back-
ground who are quite essential to an efficient army but very properly overlooked
by the non-participants. He may have great visions of the importance of his
own particular kind of service but he can have no assurance that his work will
ever be recognized either in or outside the army. He is truly the man behind,
obscured, out of sight, yes, out-of-luck because he is out of range.
The nature of my present work at once classes me with this group of super-
numeraries. ' Just now all of the psychologists are miles behind with little pros-
pect of getting a close-up of the battle line. With the information at hand that
articles are to appear in this section of the "Web" from men in the front lines
of the service, I hesitate to write about an inconspicuous branch like military
psychology. The limited sphere of my work is pointedly suggested by the term
"squirrel cage" which the enlisted men have widely applied to the psychological
quarters. The same idea has been appropriately expressed in the classification
of the mental examiners as "nut pickers." By some of the more sophisticated,
however, we are more professionally designated as "bug doctors."
Despite the perfunctory role suggested by the preceding categories, military
psychology is actually rendering vital and distinctive service. A single incident
will illustrate one phase of this service. It occurred at Camp Devens when a
steam fitter called on me for professional consultation. He had evidently heard
the term bug doctor applied to us who wore the insignia of the sanitary corps for
he was confident of my ability to give him relief. With unusual directness he
presented the facts without effort to hide anything. Further questioning was
unnecessary when he had finished. In his own words, he said: "Say, doc. what
can you do to get rid of crumbs? They're thick as the dickens on the bunch I
sleep with down there." Even though my experience in the profession at that
time was limited, I had no hesitation in prescribing an old home made and
thoroughly tried remedy, the fine comb, to be used regularly at night and any
time during the day that the nervous system specifically called for it.
Now it would be unfortunate to give the impression that military psychology
has no serious bearing. It is indeed a vital part of a life or death fight.
Through it there is a scientific expression of those human factors which are
struggling against militarism and Kaiserism. America has seen in war, as in
peace, the human problem involved. This human element, for the first time in
the history of warfare, is receiving consideration that is based on strictly scien-
tific procedure. For our army to be the mightiest possible force, it must not only
be intelligently directed but intelligently acting. If more intelligence can be util-
ized in the American forces than the enemy can muster, he will, though our
present military machine only approximates his, in the end be outwitted and
defeated. In the hands of the psychologists there is a balance of power that has
the possibility of turning back those waves of invaders which are opposing liberty
Perceiving this opportunity the psychologists, in the beginning, took up the
self appointed task of convincing the proper authorities that they had a valuable
contribution to offer in this crisis. It was necessary for them to demonstrate
their ability to identify the mentally unfit in the military personnel. Four
separate staffs in as many National Army cantonments took up this task of

demonstration. Following the success of the initial step, the problem has become
many times multiplied by recent requests of military authorities. We now find
ourselves charged with definite tasks in creating efficiency in the men at the
front. It is too late to train the men now, so we must find them. In a word,
it is our job to improve by selection the morale, steadiness, discipline, and
intrepidity of our fighting forces.
This desired esprit de corps, unseen, but none the less real, is actually the
man behind. Overshadowed by the more conspicuous physical man in the fore-
ground, the spiritual force is commonly overlooked. Being impervious to gas,
steel, or flame it will be a vital factor in winning the present conflict. Brain,
not brawn, is going to turn the tide of this struggle. The wholesale enlistment
of American intelligence in this struggle is at present the most optimistic sign
in sight. From the very beginning, the best minds were drafted into all branches
of the service and the human element has underlain our rapidly developed mili-
tary policy., For years the Hun has devoted himself to the building of a mighty
military machine, powerful and efficient, but material. The Yankee has devoted
himself instead to an individualistic program with a premium on versatility.
American intelligence is slow to set moving in concentrated action but it is
powerful because weapons are only a portion of its products.

The college man of today is a man of great influence,
capable of doing much for the good or harm of the world.
Whether this influence shall be for good or evil, depends
largely on the character training of the individual. Among
the greater factors entering into this character training
are the college professors, 'for it is to them that the
student looks for inspiration and example, From their
conscious and unconscious influences much of the student's
character is formed.
So it is that thinking men and women of today are
beginning to realize that something more is demanded of a
college professor than an imposing array of degrees and
honorsg something more is required than the mere teach-
ing of facts and theories, for the college professor must
mold character as Well as brains. He must do more, he
must mold the thoughts and character of the whole
World through the molding of the thoughts of his students.
. We Ellsvvorthians little realize and appreciate what our
noble faculty has done for us. We fail to appreciate that
molding of our character for better things, that inspira-
tion of personal contact and example, and that sympathetic
understanding of real men and Women for their fellow
men. Even in those wonderful personal friendships with
them, we appreciate but a small part of their true Worth.
Yet little as we appreciate them, We all love these men
and Women, this faculty of Ellsvvorthg love them for what
they have done for us, for what they have meant in our
lives, and most of all for what they are-real worth While
men and Women.

FERN FANSELOW '20
Resolved: That we, the Freshman Class of nineteen hundred eighteen, are
the most useful and illustrious of all students that have been and ever will be
enrolled in Ellsworth College.
First, we will endeavor to prove to you our usefulness.
1. We bear the distinction of having in our midst two beasts of burden.
They are the only means of travel across that dry and wasted area of Africa
called the Sahara. They are, also, instrumental in courtshipg e. g. when Isaac
went to seek a wife instead of taking the fleet and popular Ford of last year, he
choose, for reasons well known to young people, the slower method of travelg
two camels fCampbellsj.
2. Since fresh ham is unavailable this spring we are very fortunate to have
with us Can fnedj ham which though sometimes deviled, is very useful on picnics.
3. There is a saying that, "if a member offend thee cut it off," therefore
we have poked out the eye of Stipp and inserted a bonny Scottish "e'e"
making a step in our progress:
4. We also have a village mayor CSchultzj who, even in these warlike times
has cast aside his Spears and withdrawn to his pretty, though Hard castle.
5. You've often heard the hum of bugs
You've oft times heard of the hum of bees
But in our Freshman College Class
We always listen to the Hum of keys fHumkej
6. From all the parts of town our Belken call us all together to our Weakley
Second, we will convince our faculty that we are the most illustrious.
1. Who but a Freshman Class could possess anything so freshly new as a
food commission, like our Hoover?
2. We have followed up the first show of patriotism and placed our full
amount of golden knowledge in a Liberty Bond.
3. In this race with the high cost of living it is natural that one of our
members should be noted for always "Owen somthinf'
4. We have one Anna the prophetess, who anticipates great joy in store for
our noble and illustrious instructor of music, Bullock.
5. In childhood days we all delighted in fairy stories and even now we cling
to childish Lohr florej.
Therefore, although our Collin' is still unknown to some, we will Win in
this, our beloved College, and Deck Chl er with wreaths and Fern-sprays.

Zillmunrth Srlyunl nf Cilummerme Q
The American people are preeminently a business people. From the days
when the daring Yankee skippers of NeW'England controlled the commerce of the
world to this day of America's supremacy in business efficiency we have been a
commercial nation. So it is in this day of trained specialists, that there has come
a demand for trained men and women in all lines of commercial activity. To
meet this demand numerous "Commercial Colleges" have sprung up over the
country and colleges are adding a Variety of general business courses to their
But the founders of Ellsworth looking into the future began laying the
foundation of a real school of commerce at the very beginning of the college.
Through years it has grown and improved until today Ellsworth points with
pardonable pride to her School of Commerce, a school for real scholarly training
in business. g
Realizing the need of business training for men and women in all professions
and realizing the diversity' of these needs, the school does not offer one general
course in business training but a number of specialized courses of various lengths
and grades. '
The endeavor has been throughout to provide courses that will be of the
utmost Value in giving the student a practical technical knowledge of business
together with a cultural education' and a real training in character. To this end
the resources and faculties of the various departments of the college are com-
bined with the School of Commerce, in order that the commercial student may
have the best of training.

A GROUP OF MUSIC STUDENTS
E112 iillauxnrth Gnnaeruainrg nf zlllllufain:
WILLIAM THALNIAN, E. C.lVI. '18
An impartial consideration of the merits and ideals of Ellsworth Conserva-
tory of Music leads to a just feeling of pride in this Worthy department of our
school. While in point of numbers enrolled in its various courses the Ellsworth
Conservatory ranks among the largest in the Middle West, mere numbers alone
are not a proper criterion by which to judge a school. The worth of any educa-
tional institution depends upon the efficiency of its faculty and the standards of
excellence maintained in the work of its students. The student who desires a
thorough musical education will find here instruction fully abreast of the highest
modern standards. Full courses in piano, voice violin and the various phases of
musical theory are offered here.
The director, Professor A. E. Bullock, is considered one of the finest instruc-
tors in the country. He is a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory of Music and a
pupil in piano of Bounamici and in voice of Vannini at Florence, Italy. He has
many years of successful teaching to his credit andpaffords this school a pre-
eminence rarely found in similar institutions. -
The violin department is under the able supervision of Professor Charlotte
Maxson, an honored graduate of New England Conservatory of Music and na
student of Phoenix Winternit and Emanual Ondricek of Boston. Miss Maxson
.has demonstrated her ability as a violinist in her excellent leadership of the col-
lege orchestra and in her Red Cross recital. She also appeared with Glen Drake, a

Where she was enthusiastically received.
Mrs. Bullock, teacher of piano and theory, is a graduate of Ellsworth Con-
servatory and a student for several years at Oberlin. She is recognized as an
excellent musician and a very able instructor.
Miss Ruth Elliot, assistant instructor in piano and theory, is a pianist of
more than ordinary ability. She, likewise, is a graduate and post-graduate
student of Ellsworth.
Excellent chorus Work is carried on by means of the Ellsworth College
Choral Club. The club maintains an Artists Course which brings to the city some
of the leading musicians of the day.
The Euterpean Society is an organization of the girls of the school, the pur-
pose of which is to promote the study of various musical subjects in a general
A deep personal interest is maintained by all members of the faculty. Such
influences are thrown about a student as are conducive to a broad and thorough
musical development. It is the aim of the management to allow graduation only
after a good musical and technical foundation has been laid and a knowledge of
scientific study has been acquired. That these ideals are achieved and recognized
as such by the musical world is proven by the many students who have gone out
from the Ellsworth Conservatory of Music and assumed prominent positions in the
concert field and teaching profession.

It is peculiarly fitting that a college should have a publication not only for
the publication of college news but as a means of expression of the growing life
and ideals of the students. Ellsworth College is well represented by the "Ells-
worth Student" a bi-weekly publication. The "Student" is published inde-
pendently of the college administration by a staff elected by the student body,
making it truly and in every sense of the word a student paper.
During this year under the able editorship of Mr. A. K. Lien the "Student"
has made great progress. One of the features appearing in many issues of the
"Student" has been Mr. Lien's cartoons which are far above anything of which
most college papers can boast. During this year a large number of "Students" have
been mailed free of charge to men in the army and navy, the contribution of
patriotic members of the student body who subscribed the necessary money.

In these days of unprecedented calls for service, highminded service-men
are beginning to appreciate more and more the sincerity of those professing to
be members of the Young Men's Christian Association. This Association has an
international organization effectively wielding the sword of the spirit of the
Master, that spirit by which men are made masters of themselves, and are thus
kept fit to become serving masters of others.
The Red Triangle has become known the world over as an angel of mercy.
It has carried bread to the starving bodies of men in European prison campsg it
has fanned a feebly flickering flame of hope within a war-depressed spirit into a
brightly burning fire nourished by kindness, sympathy and love.
While the heart of the World was bleeding, writhing in agony and pain, Asso-
ciation menwere heeding their duty, heeding a brother's claim. America entered
the war, not when her armies were sent, armies that must kill in order that others
might live, but America entered the war when her army of Association men
came to the starving prisoners, starving in body and soul, when these menq came,
laden with the gifts of love, to nurse the prisoners back to life and hope. T
Association men have learned that true giving is all gain not lossg that a
humble heart is the highest monument, piercing the skies. They have always
been foremost in thinking World thoughts and by the enlightening spirit of the

While cosmopolitan in its influence, nevertheless, like all true charity, this
influence begins at home. Within the school the Association stands for thorough
democracy and men at every stage in their school course are encouraged to bd-
come members. Denominational discrimination is unknown. To become mutually
helpful, reciprocal in service, and benign in attitude is the aim of the true mem-
ber. Although the work of the Association has been seriously hampered because
of men enlisting from the ranks of the cabinet, with ardent patience, persever-
ance, and prayer the agency of moral uplift has not been allowed to suffer
fatally. The Association has denied itself some talent which money could have
brought had it not been offered for the relief of suffering. However much the
local work may have succeeded or failed, we rest assured that with members truly
dedicated to service the years will see prosperity. Devotion to the cause will find
the strength, the way, the means to accomplish.
Through prayer men learn to take hold of the hand of God, which hand
alone can guide them safely through the moments of highest Joy and deepest
grief, when life is on the pinnacle of fame or on the verge of despair. Prayer
enables them to increase their love for the truly great things in life, the beau-
tiful, the good and the true.
Much thought is given to the practicability of the principles of Jesus. Men
resolve to apply them to modern problems and the missionary effort is conscious
of the fact that the vision of the Kingdom can ,never be realized unless more men
and women will march forth as true missionaries of the cross-the conquering
cross. Jesus conquered the world by the cross and by the cross alone can men
be lifted up, can hearts be lifted up. When such a flood of fellow-feeling flows
from soul to soul in every land, the world will soon achieve its goal and love will

The Young Women's Christian Association of Ellsworth College is not merely
of local importance for it is part of a vast national, and, in fact, an international
organization, which has for its purpose the betterment of the young women of the
world. The local Y. W. C. A. keeps in touch with this greater organization
though correspondence with the various Field Secretaries whose headquarters are
in Minneapolis and New York City and through visits from these officials. Forty
percent of the dues paid by the members of the college association goes to the
maintainence of the greater institution.
The Y. W. C. A. has been carried into every field where such an activity is
possible. There are not only student organizations such as are found at Ellsworth
College, but there are also town, city, rural, county, and high school organiza-
tions. The latest branch of the work is that of the Army Y. W. C. A. which
establishes and maintains 'fHostess Houses" in the cantonments of our own
country and France. The entire system proves its efficiency wherever it is
found. The local Y. W. C. A. was organized in 1904 under the direction of Miss
Ruth Paxon. The organization has prospered and developed, having at one time
as many as sixty members. The number at present is only about forty, an ex-
cellent percent considering the present enrollment of Ellsworth College under war

The aim of the local branch at present is to fulfill each clause of this pur-
pose and in so doing enlist every girl in school as a member and to lead her into
a closer relationship with Jesus Christ as her personal Savior.
The work of the Y. W. C. A. is carried on by the members under the leader-
ship and recommendation of the Cabinet, which consists of ten members: Presi-
dent, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and the chairmen of the various com-
mittees. The cabinet acts upon the direction and advice of the faculty advisor.
The officers for the year 1917-18 are: Faculty advisor, Mrs. H. C. Binghamg
president, Blanche Brittaing vice-president, Ilia Ganfieldg secretary, Leone H.
Hall, treasurer, Frances Fraserg chairmen of committees: Social, Ona Weakleyg
religious meetings, Reva Hopkins, Association news, Anna Laippleg voluntary
study, Lora Killiusg social service, Laura Mitchell, music, Katherine Reynolds.
There are several phases of Association work, the devotional meeting being
the most important. It is held each Thursday evening at seven o'clock. This
routine is varied by special meetings several times during the year and by a
series of special evangelistic services once each year. Voluntary study classes
are conducted throughout the greater part of the year as a feature of the work.
Then, too, the social service band is ever busy helping and encouraging the sick,
the lonesome, the discouraged and those in trouble or sorrow. However, the
undertakings are not all Workg many social events are held during the year, some
of which are becoming established as delightful annual affairs. Whatever fthe
nature of the effort undertaken by the Y. W. C. A., whether work or play, the
aim of those in charge is to lead up to the highest goal, the fulfillment of the
purpose stated in the Constitution.

The Phi Delta Literary Society was organized in 1908, the first record of
minutes being November 19, 1908, but there are indications on the roster that
there were earlier meetings, probably informal, at which the constitution was
drafted and adopted.
The charter members were: O. S. Winterfield, C. D. Thorpe, G. L. Sanders
fwho seems to have dropped the work before the first roll callj, E. E. Swiney,
W. P. Thorpe, Earl Dunn, E. Hoffman, John Himmel, Ralph Collis, H. E.
Mathews, Wm. Hoffman and Walter Himmel.
The purpose of the society as stated in the preamble to the constitution is to
drill its members in the essay, oration, debate, and other literary work as well as
to secure to themselves the advantages of warm friendship and mutual aid. This
purpose is worthy of any man's best efforts and the study needed to attain it is
essential in the development of every good American citizen. T
From a beginning with twelve members the society grew to fourteen the
first year and has steadily advanced until, in 1916-17, there were' thlirty-four
members on the roster.

In that year came the call to service after the declaration of war and in the
patriotic response that followed the literary society lost many of its best mem-
Those upon the roll of honor of the society are:
Robert E. Lee.
Lee D. Rowe.
Ray J. Tidman.
Robert P. Wood.
H. C. Bingham.
Roy W. Gfanfield
G. C. Mauss.
J. Ray Fanselow.
The society realizes that these men are doing greater service where they are
now and wishes them the best of success in their work, feeling sure they will
reflect nothing but credit on the organization.
The work in the weekly programs is distributed to cover various fields of
literary effort in accordance with the purposes stated above and as a result
everything from wit and humor to philosophy and science is discussed. Careful
preparation on these subjects is demanded and close criticisms are made so that
one must be well informed on a subject which he presents before the society.
But it is not always work and no play. New members are added to the
roster occasionally and these are given into the hands of the initiation committee
who find out who they are and incidently introduce them to the college and com-
munity. The writer well remembers how he and a dozen other "freshies" made
sport for this committee and the staring eyes of Ellsworth and Iowa Falls, as
they masqueraded as the "Dingbat Family." We saw little fun in it then but
since that time other victims have demonstrated that there is real amusement in
it by giving some very pleasing and artistic impromptu performances.
An annual event which has been adopted by the society for their own enjoy-
ment and at the same time for an educational purpose is the Phi Delta banquiet
given to the members .of the Alethean Literary Society. This affair closes in a
program of toasts at which much wit and wisdom is displayed.

Ah, 'tis the beautiful springtime,
The year like a river runs through its course.
Dancing, and murmuring its secrets to all who list,
It sparkles like gems in the sunlight as it trips o'er the mossy stones.
Daisies and buttercups, and honeysuckle flowers are beckoning and nodding
The larks and the robins call to their mates,
And the nightingale warbles without.
Love calls to her, entwines her, In
So why should my Alethean seem so troubled and sad.
Is it not discouraging, when to the listeners nearby,
Her truths and ideals appear false?
When she fears lest Existence may close her account,
E'er she makes them understand what she's Owen to the world.
Yes 'tis true, but why shouldn't she,
Have peace in her soul?
Howsoever wild the world may roll.
For, through her striving, they cannot fail to know e'er long.
Oh, 'tis that endless striving, striving for an ever fleeting goal,
lTis that which will make her strongest,
It is Pseudo mischievously intervening
Turns her ideals upside down,
Hence upon that fair maid's brow plays that unbecoming frown.
Ah, here sh-e comes, my little dusky haired sprite,
Mirth and mischief dancing in her bright black eyes.
What should we do without you, to prevent us from being content with
what We are.
For indeed 'tis you little Pseudo's heart,
That keeps us all alert.
'This with you, the seed of Wisdom we do sow.
- And with the hand of Experience we make it grow.
Now what have you, my merry lass, been up to?
Oh! I have just demolished some of Alethean's dreams,
For you know she has high ideals, which tower to the sky.
But I crept in, tumbled them down and hence,
She is in the garden giving Way to her despondence.
Oh, let us hasten to our darling and see if on the morrow,
We might not find some remedy for her great sorrow.
QA spacious garden, a meandering stream dancing and sparkling in the sun.
Alethean sitting beside the stream beneath a willow tree.J
O world, O cruel, cruel world, that loveth not my dreams and aspirations.
Would that I might leave your cold and bitter shores.
Ye Warbling nightingales take me on your wings,
And bear me away from this unfeeling world of things,
Lead me to immortal truth, where all in sight is of worth.

My Alethean keep on weaving, extend your great web into space,
Open your eyes to the great crowds seething and slowly gather them in
Strive your friends to please with manners wondrous winning,
Never follow wicked ways unless the great truth you are opining.

O Pseudo, may I never have peace?
Not until you have reached perfection
In the race with Preparation.
Oh, my Declamatory be at ease, I pray you,
Pseudo shall be mastered
And he shall not escape disaster.
My dearest Alethean, 'tis with regret I must leave you.
But with Pseudo interfering, 'tis such a bore,
That public notice I will seek no more,
I will fold my wings until courage rules supreme.
Then my shield and buckler I will take,
And poor Pseudo will see his fate.
'Tis then to you, I'll make my way and set my seal to stay.
Oh how cruel is fate.
For with declamatory now I have no weight,
She has turned me down for that which is no fault of mine.
Methinks I go down and drown it all in a cup of forbidden wine
CONFIDENCE and Stage Directors.
QEnters softly, whispering sweet and lowj
Listen to me sister dear why despair
When all is clear. That you and you alone,
Shall brighten all that is drear
Your beaming face will through the clouds appear,
You'll dance and sing and who knows, mayhap marryg
Time will tell and all predictions say it is well.
If all were true this picture that you drew
It would be a world of love and gayety
Where all would be graceful spontaneity.
, To my aspiration I could arise
And ride the star in. highest clime.
Those obstacles I could manage,
Even though they went on a rampage,
Oh what a joy it would be
If all could agree,
And each one be so ideal
' That he could outlive the real.
A world indeed that would be
But Alethean what you would not see.
If something did not attempt to lead you astray,
Dazzling you with their bright array.
Why sister mine there is Coouette joyously coming this wavy
What do you think she will have to say.
But I am sure if to the etheral world
You had gone with a bound,
No little Coquette you would have found. L'
- Alethean to you this news I bring,
It is this, we are going to have a banquet,
And Phi Delta is to be there, so take care.
He has often heard your name,
So he is anxious to meet you that he may add to his fame.

PHI DELTA QA1-isingy
A toast to the maid with most exquisite grace,
Whose character of truth and love sublime
Beam in her most beautiful face.
She does as Channing says, "Seeks elegance
Rather than luxury, and refinement
Rather than fashion, to be worthy not
Respectable, and wealthy not rich."
'This she whom Declamatory seeks,
'Tis she who gives debate her wit.
And Confidence will say, "Mercy on us
I cannot live without you."
While I, pour my ardent love about her.
Here's to hoping my turn may come
To give him a friendly warning,
To you Phi Delta I would say,
Her heart is like some icy lake
On whose brink you stand,
Oh buckle on your spirts skate,
And may some loving saint lead your way to where the ice is thin,
That it may break beneath your feet to let a lover in.
One and all may I ever be with you in spirit,
May I be your shield through strife
And your guide while thru life you glide.
But now far across the hills we'll go, Phi Delta and I.
To that world which is old, across the fields and far away
Beyond their utterniost purple rim
And into the dying day, I'll ever follow him.
Yet never may their mystic paths
Breathe whispers of the mournful past,
Or Pseudo wake her with sounding horn
Mid Ether's columned temple vast,
Grave History walks again on the earth as erst it did in days of old,
But when seated on her golden throne, may Aletheants hard a jeweled scep-
'Tis with sad regrets I see Phi Delta woo her,
For without her there will be to me no music in the trees
To charm me with its frolicking mirth
When Alethean I cannot tease
But they all say, "Thus shift the scenes till high aloft
The young moon sets her crescent horn,
And in the gray eveninQ"s emerald sea
The beauteous star of love is born."

Since the beginning of colleges and academies such organizations as literary
societies have been necessary and Ellsworth Academy can boast of such a body,
the Aonian Literary Society.
This organization together with the Academy boys society, now the Philo-
mathean, was jointly organized under name of Aonians about the year 1900.
Nearly six years later the society divided into two separate groups,-the girls
then becoming the Aonian society of which we still are proud.
For twelve years the Aonians have faithfully kept this body together in
order that every girl below college rank may have the privilege of taking part
in Literary work and many girls who are in school for only the twelve weeks
term find the work beneficial in preparation for their teaching.
For the critic and advisor a lady faculty member is chosen. Mrs. Stout held
this place from the time of the organizing until this year when Mrs. Reynolds

Open programs are usually given to which everyone is invited and at the
close of the school year the Philometheans and Aonians give a joint open pro-
gram. These help in preparing a student for his life after school work is over.
The programs consist of Debates, Reading, Parliamentary Drill, Orations,
Themes and Extemporaneous work.
The chief purpose of the society is to develop in each girl self-reliance and
the power of working out her own topics.
lVe may truthfully say that anyone wishing to receive the best there is to
be had in school life can make no mistake in joining such an organization as the
Aonian Literary Society.

ITS ORIGIN AND HISTORY
Euterpe, the sweet-voiced goddess of lyric poetry, lived with her eight sisters
upon Mount Helicon, and together th-ey presided over the song, poetry, and dance
of Old Greece. -
t'The Nine Muses," as men called them, were the daughters of Zeus, the
father of gods, and the dark-browed Mnemosyne, whose name in our language is
Memory. As soon as these daughters of Zeus were born, behold, they became
maidens grown and began to sing a ravishing melody. Up they soared to the
throne of mighty Zeus, their father, and there sang his praises in voices so sweet
that all Olympus thrilled and sat spell-bound. From that day, never did the gods
gather at a banguet but the Muses shared the ambroisal feast and graced it with
their song and dance.
Not only was it their mission to entertain the gods but theirs was also the
duty of guiding the pen of the poet and of inspiring the heart of the musician,
To each of these nine sisters Was given a special art. Euterpe became the goddess
of lyric poetry,-the patroness of song.
Such is the story of the Greek goddess, Euterpe, and such is the origin of the
name chosen in nineteen hundred fifteen by a small group of music students as
being the most appropriate for a musical society of high ideals. Admitting to
membership only those girls Whose chief interest and study is music, the Euterpean
Society has maintained at all times an interest and spirit which can not be sur-.
Only three years have passed in the existence of this society, but they are
years of close companionship, development, self-expression, and inspiration. The
first year, with Florence Stockdale as president, was a record cf beginnings, but
. ,Y 2
Q - if 'H E' 2
-a was - ...,... at
iiiifw "" """' "'4' ------" ' J if
the society soon learned its first steps, and advanced so well that, toward the
close of the year, a Grafanola was purchased. The second year opened with Mary
Kamberling as president, but circumstances called her to another state and Ethyl
Johnson was .elected to fill the vacancy. During this year the remainder of the
Grafanola debt was paid, and the society started a course in parliamentary law.
Prosperity increases with the years, and both membership and finances, during
the present year, denote increasing interest and progress. Gertrude Elliott has
served as president during the present year.
But all the material good which has come to the society is overbalanced by
the help which each Euterpean girl receives individually. Whether at the piano
in song, in a paper or reading, or in conducting a meeting, the opportunities for
self-expression and development are of a value beyond estimation. Careful prep-
aration has always been the Euterpean watchwordg-no musical number is used
without the approval of the music faculty, and the papers are corrected by
faculty critics previous to being read in the society. As faculty critic, Mrs.
Meyer has, by her tactful suggestions prov-ed of great help to the girls, and the
interest and helpful cooperation of Prof. and Mrs. Bullock have ever proved an
inspiration and help.
In after years when thots fly back to dear old Ellsworth, every Euterpearnl
will realize in fullest measure the part which the society has played in her prep--
aration for life.

PROFESSOR JOHN P. I-IIMMEL
The Choral Club of Ellsworth College was organized in 1906 for the purpose
of creating among the students a keener appreciation for the better class of
music. Since its organization the club has achieved its purpose nobly. It has
been instrumental in bringing to the college community musical artists of very
high rank, and in giving the students excellent opportunities in musical educa-
tion. The club has grown not only in the number of its members, but also in
the effectiveness of the work undertaken and accomplished. It has been per-
fected and the character of the musical compositions sung is stronger year by
year. Since the work of the club becomes stronger greater responsibility falls
upon each member, hence, naturally higher standards are required of the appli-
cants each year. The club has passed the period in its history when it sought
for those without any appreciation for the high art of music for the mere pur-
pose of filling its ranks, and has entered the new and broader stage when the
person seeks the club for the inspiration and education that it gives. The real
work of the club is to train artists. No one can emerge from the year's work
without that musical skill and appreciation which the discipline under competent
The present membership of the Choral Club is sixty and for the last few
years the club has been able to maintain a large membership, thus making the
general effect of the chorus work very strong and allows more difficult choruses
and cantatas. During the last few years the club has given one theme for its
annual concert-an established event-instead of a program of various short
choruses, thus giving the concert a far more artistic stamp.
The steady growth of the Choral Club has been due in not a small measure
to the constant and untiring efforts of Professor A. E. Bullock, who can see the
large possibilities of the club and through whose enterprise the club is able to
enter upon an enlarged and definite program. It was because of his efforts
that the annual concert has become an established event in the college calendarg
that the C. W. Best artists series was managed during the last three years,
thereby bringing to our community some of the best artists of the musical worldg
and of the stupenduous undertaking of bringing the Minneapolis Symphony
Orchestra to Iowa Falls in the spring of 1916 was made a successful fact. No
slight mention should be made of the ceaseless work of Mrs. A. E. Bullock who
has served the club through these many years as an official accompanist, for its
successful work is in a very large measure unquestionably due to her skill at the
piano. Mention should be made ofthe pioneer member, Dr. Stooksbury, who has
given up his time and energy in organizing the club, who served for a number of
years as its efficient president, and who still gives his invaluable services as a
Larger possibilities await the Choral Clubg for, while it has done nobly, it
has not reached the acme of its possible attainments. The chief responsibility of
promoting musical enterprises has devolved upon the Choral Club. Ellsworth
College should look foreward toward the establishing, of a great annual musical
festival. Perhaps it will be the duty of the Choral Club to undertake it and
with the encouragement of every department of the college, it can achieve the
undertaking. Thus can the Choral Club further enlarge its influence and, in
turn, be of vital service to every department of the college and to the citizens of
our community by making possible broader educational opportunities.

The value of the benefits derived from debating is not fully recognized by the
majority of college students, debating appears to them to be a dry hard task
from which no interest may be derived. This is far from being true as any
student who has had any experience in debating will affirm, for the debate is
intensely interesting ,aside from the educational value which may be derived
From the standpoint of educational value the debate may justly be said to
make use of all branches of study which the student has formerly pursued. To
this is added the interest of matching one intellect with another. Then too
debating is a great factor in the public speaking department, for a student must
be more than a mere speaker to be a debater. He must be a student with a
quick mind, and one with the ability to think on his feet. In fact the debate
puts into actual use those things which the student has been studying with many
other factors.It aids in developing analytical thoughtg it shows the student the
value of clear outline and logical arrangement in composition. Debating
developes positiveness, self-reliance, fair thinking in an effort to learn the truth,
clear enunciation, and many other positive qualities in the individual.
The college offers a course in debating and the literary societies have a de-
bate as an occasional feature but neither of these possess the training and
influence which may be derived from an inter-collegiate debate. One inter-
collegiate debate is worth more than a dozen literary debates in educational
value to the student. The value of debating and public speaking has long been
recognized. Daniel Webster said that one should always speak before an audi-
ence at every opportunity offered. Many great national questions have been'
settled in the right manner by the persuasive argumentof some powerful
speaker. As examples of such Webster's reply to Hayne, Lincoln's great debate
with Douglas, and the speeches of Macaulay may be quoted.
If the value of debating were fully realized by the majority of college
students greater zest would be shown along this line of work, competition would
be keener in the try-outs, and the standard of debating in the colleges would

WILLIAM H. KRIEG '18
There is but one great battle
That all brave men must fight,
It is the holy battle,
The battle for the right.
The paramount problem challenging the nations of the World to-day is how
to live peaceably and prosperously with one another. To this end, the life of
every man worthy the name is dedicated. To solve this problem successfully has
baffled the wisest men of all ages. The mighty pendulum of civilization swings
from War to peace, from peace to War. It must come to rest upon the middle
ground of freedom or else the human drama is destined to be a sad heart-rending
tragedy. Sixty centuries of history record an average of one great War for
every forty years. On the tragedies that have been enacted, the treasons that
have been committed in the name of necessity. Men said: There is no other way
We must be free. It is Written in the skies, it is written in the grave, in the
heart of every slave: up to freedom I must rise. The love for freedom is
humanity's one controlling passion. It is the unquenchable fire of hope that
warms the heart for every brave and noble deed requisite to pave the way to
freedom. Freedom is the germ of life. From a million graves We hear the
voice of freedom: to die is sweeter far, than to live and be a slave. In many
millions massed in marble monuments we see the form of freedom pointing to the
skies. Indeed, history knows no other verdict-but freedom. Freedom at any
costg justice to the oppressed. No price is too precious, no burden too great if
they but secure freedom.
When hidden things Within the Womb of time are ready to unfold there come
calamities sublime, followed by joys untold. Peace is the child of freedom. Manv
children of freedom have been born, but none have been allowed to mature. All
have been killed in the cradle. So today the World is straining itself that it
may again give birth to the child of freedom. Meteors' in the sky seek equili-
brium. The earth convulses to adjust its foundations. Nations strive to
remedy their maladjustments. The star of Empire in its Westward course has
"nd 70w J 'gf VW
completed its circuit. No longer is it possible for men to seek freedom in new
uninhabited lands and there work out their destiny. They are compelled to live
with their fellows, to love or to hate, to survive or to perish.
The hour of crisis is at hand. The leaves of the judgment book lie unfolded
and there, written by the hand of the irrefutable logic of events, we read these
verdicts: When nations will not listen to the quiet wooings of the spirit of
brotherhood, then they will be forced to listen to the roar of the cannon. Nations
will be either their brother's keeper or his killer. Neutrality is impossible.
United, nations are able to stand, but divided they are destined to fall. 'tGod
has made of one blood all nations of men." But nations have not paid the price
The judgment day has come. War has divided the family of nations. Prussian
militarism has committed treason. Treason against humanity, treason against jus-
tice, treason against God. These are moments fraught with great solemnity. Trea-
son against a nation is terrible to contemplate. But treason against the world-
who can fully grasp its despicable atrocity! Oh. the tragedy of it all! It is indeed
a crucial moment in the affairs of the world when it becomes necessary for one
group of nations to impeach another group for the pursuit of folly. To-day
Prussian Militarism stands convicted before the court of humanity. It is teach-
ing the world that national aggrandizement and prestige are empty when pur-
chased with the blood of trampled millions.
That such treason should be committed in an age so devoted to peace seems
paradoxical. Hague courts were established. Chief Justice Marshall had
declared that "No principle of law is more universally recognized than the per-
fect equality of all nations." John Spargo wrote: "It is the great merit of
socialism-grudingly conceded by its bitterest opponents-that it has implanted
in the breast of millions of souls in all lands a passionate love for all mankind,
a sense of international fraternity." All signs seemed indicative of peace. Every
mother's heart yearned and longed for it. Pulpits preached, presses printed,
people prayed-peace. Not without faith. Peace was bound to come. It is
written in the destines of men that nations shall learn war no more. Peace had
been the dream of men everywhere. Now it is coming to be a blessed reality.
This war is proving that peace is not an empty dream. When some nations are
imprisoned in the gloomy dungeon of national agrandizement, selfishness, domi-
nation, and oppression, then war is the only door to peace. The forces' of
iniquity challenger, defied the efforts of peace. The challenge was accepted
and by the grace of God will be fought to a successful close.
It has ever been the one saving virtue of great calamities that they bring
nations ftemporarily at leastl to their senses. They force men to realize wherein
they have failed. With all the precious blood that flowed in all previous wars
that had been waged in the interests of freedom the world had failed to secure
peace. The old policies of selfishness were always reassumed and have unfail-
ingly led again and again to war. Men knocked at the portals of science and
asked for the keys to the palace of peace, but they asked in vain. They search-
ed in the halls of learning for freedom's formula, but futile was their search. At
last they are forced to deal with the inevitable. Now they are kneeling at the
door of heaven pleading for the truth that shall make them free. And the
clarion voice of the angel sounds forth the old, old message-love, true brother-
hood. There is no other way. The only complex thing about it is its simplicity.
During nineteen centuries the nations have failed to learn this simple lesson.
However, the inevitable has come-war against war. At first men conjectured
whether this would be the last great war. Now they are demanding that it be
the last. This is their one aim, to secure a lasting peace, a disarmed world. At
last humanity is determined to be free from the shackles of war.
Poor, suffering, struggling humanity! All nature is free. The mountains,
the hills, the valleys. the seas. Man alone is enslaved. Ignorant in his wisdom,
poor with his wealth, slave to his passions. Man like many other animals preys
upon his own species. It is indeed sad to contemplate the fact that the only thing
enslaving man is man himself. Nature he has subdued, himself he cannot con-
quer. Endowed with the will to choose love or hate, he has chosen hate, because

f lin '-v- 4 i .. i .- ,ll love of fellowmen has been deemed an impracticable theory. Nations have never
had the courage to accept the gift of the cross-brotherly love. By calling it
impracticable they have called God a liar and sealed their own doom. Hitherto
so-called practical policies have actuated the interests of nations. They have ad-
mitted,God in their policies in so far as this would not interfere with their selfish
ambitions. That means, they have not admitted Him at all.. Yet they have
called themselves.Christian. Oh such inconsistency!
For nineteen centuries nations have been challenged to accept the law of love.
But they have been unwilling to pay the price. After every war they have
reassumed the old policies of selfishness. After this war the nations will again
be called upon to choose between love and hate, between life and death. Then
the supreme test for democracy will come-the last battle.. Democracy will be
safe from autocracy. Militarism will be crushed. Large armies will be un-
necessary. But already there are forces operating to burden this "the land of
the free and the home of the brave" with huge military establishments. Oh such
folly! Do armies keep nations from War? No, certainly not. That which is
superior to armies-the honor of other nations-alone can secure' them peace.
What else is there to prevent any number of nations from overwhelming another
nation but honor? No army is so great, no navy so strong as to defy the whole
world. Fellow-Countrymen, may God forbid that this country become a huge
military camp. If the world is to enjoy permanent peace and catastrophies
like this war shall have no sequel then there must be a supreme court of interna-
tional good Will to govern nations.
There are two ways of settlement after this war. One is to exact indemnities
from the vanquished as has been the custom in times past. The other is to for-
give and to forget, the way of the great emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, "Love
toward all, malice toward none." The lives of the men who gallantly fought and
died in this war are far too precious to admit of any petty bickering over bound-
ary lines. They were freely given for a far nobler purpose, for the freedom of
the world, for that which money or territory cannot, shall not buy. By the man-
ner of settlement we shall secure either a lasting hate or a last peace. Unless
there be mutual forgiveness, the sacrifices of these men will be desecrated. They
will have died in vain. The last battle then is not on the battlefield, nor on the
stormy sea, but in the hearts of men, between love and hate. Men must conquer
themselves, their own selfishness. Courts are incapable, laws ineffective,
treaties of no avail. The supreme court of man is his will. No power save love
can conquer the will.
Fellow-countrymen While we are waging the last battle for freedom, we
are not merely paying a debt to France, but we are also paying a debt to our
forefathers. Our fathers left the continent in search of the precious, priceless
pearl of freedom. By the grace of God they found it. Ours is the task to take
it back to the continent that its people too might be free. We must not selfishly
hoard our freedom, for any special benefits adhering thereto but share it with
all mankind. Not until then can we indeed be free. "Freely we have received,
freely let us give."
Oh my country, you have ever been the laboratory for experiments in the
interest of freedom. I implore you to launch forth upon a policy of disarma-
ment. Put your trust in God. If there be no God then you cannot perish too
soon. But if there be a God then He will sustain you. Win the last battle for
freedomg between love and hate. Nations will follow your example. Then the
time will soon be at hand when nations will say to nation: what is mine shall be
thine, "thy people shall be my people. and thy God shall be my God."
Somewhere in France, on Every-Man's-Land, where the world is being woven
into one, where Black and White, French and English, anadian and American
have gallantly fought and died, there is an invisible imperishable monument for
the commemoration of the World's emancipation from war's oppressive heel.
The blood of many millions mingled freely in the mire,
That freedom's sacred monument might rise the higher, higher,
So high that all the world might see and stand aghast,
Then kneel in gratitude that freedom's come at last.

Glen C. Smith an alumnus of Ellsworth College was selected as director and
head coach of all athletic activities for the school year 1917-'18, When in school
he was considered one of the leading athletes of the state being a particularly
strong football man and winning a backfield position on the All-State Collegiate
team. Director Smith has taken special work in athletics during the summer
terms in the Universities of Wisconsin and Illinois. He is an experienced man
in his Work, already be-ing credited with developing a high school football team
that was a contender for the state championship.
Last fall Smith rounded out a football team out of new material there being
one "E" man on the team as several of the men who were expected back to form
the nucleus of the team for '17 season had answered the call to the colors.
The scores of the games played do not speak very favorably for the team
or coach but the coach was handicapped by having some of his developed regu-
lars joining the colors. The team was light but though it was a hard fight for
the coach to in-still a feeling of confidence by loyal and constant work on the part
of both the players and coach a team was developed that worked its plays with
precision and of which the school was proud. Smith teaches the game in the
"clean and hard fight" system. He has a commanding personality on the field
and consequently gets the most out of his men. In .view of the fact, however
that both coach and team were new the season must be considered a very suc-

FIRST BASE BALL TEAM
The 1917 baseball season at Ellsworth was a success in every respect. Com-
petition for positions was keen throughout the season. A hard schedule was
played but a majority of the games were won.
Both the first and second teams manifested a fine baseball spirit and were
game loosers as Well as exultant victors. A large share of credit for the show-
ing of the first team should be given to Prof. Bingham who coached and managed
the whole baseball squad in a very efficient manner. '
The baseball standard in the past has been very high and there are strong
aspirations for a Hawkeye conference title in the near future. Special reference
should be made of the quality of baseball ma-terial during the last two years,
which indeed was among the best in the history of the school. The schedules as
played by the teams were as follows:

HAROLD HALL-Captain and Pitcher.
The tall twirler with big league ability, held up to his old form. He came
across with a victory every time he was given the proper support. Halley was
an easy topnotcher in the Hawkeye conference. He used the big stick for long
WM. KRIEG-Catcher and Field.
Billy can work everywhere but on the bags. Formerly he played left field
but the absence of Wall necessitated him doing the backstop work. A good hitter
and a speedy base runner dcesn't talk much but plays ball.
OTIS THOMPSON-First Base.
A short man with a big reach. Otie could receive those wicked pegs from all
angles. He had a good batting eye, consequently headed the list.
EARLING LARSON-Second Base.
The boy who could pick those hot grounders from the dirt and never blink.
Lars was tricky and would always catch a napper on the deuce bag. He always
placed his timely short hits.
GALE ESSLINGER-Short Stop.
Gale was dead sure on a flyball, this sureness was undoubtedly due to his
former experience in the center garden. He fielded grounders well, had a good
peg, and could talk a pitcher to victory.
HARRY GAULKE-Third Base.
Gaulke had a splendid form for a third sacker. He would always do the
impossible when it came to cutting them off at the initial bag. The bat was
used for driving purposes by him. He can also pitch.
NELS ANDERSON-Pitcher and Field.
Andy is a southpaw. His curves delivered with an overhand form were very
effective. Andy generally played left field. He could catch those long flies
running at full speed. He always made the opposing pitcher cut the pan when
he was batting.
WAYNE FOLBRECHT-Right Field.
Dukes pitched when necessary. His permanent position was right field.
Though he was not very swift he was sure on the catch. He hit the ball wherever
it needed to be hit.
CLARENCE WATERMAN-Field. A
Waterman was a new man in the game. He caught some, the remainder of
his playing was done in center field. He displayed himself to be an adjustable
man in the game.
John was not a sensationalist in his work at centerfield. But his hitting
average would prove to any one that his kind of work would win the game.

BY ANNA LAIPPLE
Prior to the year of 1915, girls' athletics had received little attention at Ells-
worth. During the preceding years some futile attempts were made at basket
ball and gymnasium work. However, it was not until the fall of the year 1915
that a real interest in outdoor activities for girls was felt. In that year Mrs.
Stout and the following charter members organized the "Hiker's Club": Mary
Peck, Marie Swenson, Della Shafer, Esther Bloom, Louise and Katherine Laipple,
Maud Simpson, Marion Hall, Belle Tvedt, and Edna Stauffacher.
Much of the success of the club is due to Mrs. Stout who has been its faith-
ful leader from the beginning. The rules of the organization are: to follow
the leader, never to complain, and to have an outdoor picnic once a month. Two
events which were established by Mrs. Stout and the charter members are car-
ried out annually. These are the trip home from Alden, and the Christmas
party. On the former the "Hikers" go to Alden on the evening passenger train,
there have supper and then start on their return trip. All together it is a nine
mile walk, but it does not seem half so long to the jolly "Hikers" who consider it
a rare treat. The Christmas party is also an event which is never forgotten
by any of its participants. On this occasion there has always been a "surprise,"
in the shape of Christmas cakes and candles, by the leader.
The influence of the club has been greatly felt. Its members have learned
to rely on themselves and on their own strength. Members are now known to
walk four or five miles and consider it only a pleasure. The club's influence has
been felt in other schools and has even penetrated as far as Columbia University
where a hiker's club was an unheard of thing until one of the Ellsworth Hikers
established one there.
The Club also has its social side.
Can any of the members of 1916-'17 ever forget the sleigh ride to the home of
Mrs. Mitchell. and the splendid dinner that Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell had prepared
for them? What appetites the healthy, hungry, Hikers had! Or would it be
possible for the members of 1917-'18 to forget the trip to the home of Amelia
Laipple-Butson and the dinner which awaited them there?
Although the members of thisclub are noted for hiking, they are not set in
their Ways and occasionally they enjoy a hay rack ride with some jolly farmer
who happens to be going their way, and they have been known to accept auto-
mobile rides-when there was "room for all". However their main purpose is
walking, walking for the joy of seeing those things they never could see if they
did not walk.
At the close of the school year the club has its farewell picnic. On this
occasion each girl is requested to tell truthfully and confidentially what she
intends to do the coming year.
Then comes the examination conducted by the leader, and each girl who
passes is rewarded by a letter "H" which she proudly displays as soon as possible
on her sweater sleeve.

To every true Ellsworthian long away from his college comes a longing to be
back upon the old campus, to see again the first rays of the morning sun, filtering
through the majestic oaks, fall in beautiful gradations of light and shade upon
the rich green and red of the ivy covered Walls, to feel, that enthusiastic sense
of joy and delight in Work worth doing and to join the happy throng going into
the early classes, feeling, that life, with all its Work and cares, is supremely
Worth While-5 or to sit again in the hot afternoons beneath the great oaks or in
the cool shaded recesses of the library dreamily studying the morroW's lessons.
There comes a longing to be back again in the old chapel for the mass meet-
ing of the evening with that joyous, happy throng of friends, to hear the old
yells resound through the halls, and feel again that enthusiastic joy of being an
Ellsworthiang or to Walk again with some dear friend lazily past in the soft moon-
light of a balmy spring evening, to look up with that feeling almost of awe and
reverence at the old buildings high yet in softened outline in the moonlight's
It is to you we dedicate this little section, to you who love Ellsworth so. In
the evening after the day's work is done as you sit by the fireside dreamily
turning the pages, may it bring back to you those fond, dear memories of the

E112 Mission uf the Glnllege :man in the mnrlh
LIONEL K. ARNOLD '19
Today, when all too often the minds of men are filled only with ideas of
money making, there comes to the college and the college man the challenge: "Of
what good are colleges and college men in the world?" And clearly back should
come the reply, "The college man has a mission in life, a real purpose to perform.
It is the duty of the college man to teach the world to think clearly for itself and
to put upon all things their fundamental underlying valuationsf ' t'But why,"
you say, f'is this necessary?"
It is necessary because today our ideals have become perverted, our litera-
ture a mere means of passing away the time, our women mere toys for men to
while away their idle hours, our system of morals degraded and our religion a
mere form. But why should this be so? Because people have forgotten to see
clearly and put upon all things their true valuation, but have followed blindly the
customs of their ancestors.
It is only when men get untrue and distorted valuations of things that crime
and sin come into the world. When a man puts a higher value upon money than
upon honesty, as soon as a good opportunity presents itself he becomes a thief.
Or when a man places a higher value upon some thing than he places upon an-
other man's life he soon becomes a murderer. But, when a man comes to think
clearly and place upon all things their proper valuation, he realizes that crime
and sin are not worthy of a place in the world of thinking men and women.
The college man needs first of all to teach the world a true appreciation of
high ideals. Nearly three centuries ago the ideal of religious freedom led a little
band of men and women to leave their homes for the barren shores of a foreign
land. A century and a half later the ideal of political freedom led these people
into a deadly conflict with the mightiest nation on earth and, nearly a century
later, the ideal that "all men are born free and equal" led them into a bloody
Nearly two thousand years ago a Child was born to bring to the world the
ideals by which it was to be guided. And today, the World is engaged in one of
the bloodiest wars it has ever known to determine whether those ideals' or the
ideals of "might makes right" shall rule.
Such then is the power of ideals which we are just beginning to recognize as
the ruling force of the World. It is then evident that if the world is to be ruled
by ideals. it is the duty of the colleges and college men to teach the world those
high ideals which will make life worth while.
Today with our mass of popularized literature the college man has another
problem before him. The writers of today have been content to popularize the
literature for the masses rather than raise the standard of the masses to that of
good literature. It is true that the literature usually accomplishes its purpose,
gi we g to
wee - J Ifi'
mmnu- W EN! L 1 lmlr 'NMl """"" In .
:-JA df -..... ..... A ,4,,YI.kl.A,,. Y WX
that of amusing the reader but it seldom goes beyond that. Even much of our
"scientific writing" has been so popularized that one page of facts is sufficient
real thought to spread over ten or twenty pages or even a whole book. Why
should this be true? It is largely because the majority of people and even many
college men object to reading anything which makes them do much thinking or
rise above their ordinary level of thought. This leaves it to the college man to
teach the world the true value of good literature-literature that makes a man
think and develops him into the highest type of citizenship.
The college man needs to teach the world a greater respect for true woman-H
hood. The college man admires not the silly, gaudy, shallowmindec creature but
the woman with true character, strong purposes and high ideals. He finds in
woman not merely a few hours of enjoyment, but a lasting influence for all that
is good in the world. He finds in such a woman not a beast of burden todo his
commands but an equal to do in the world the things which he cannot do. These
things the college man must impress upon the minds of the world.
It is for the college man to teach the world that true morals and true reli-
gion are matters of heart and principle, not mere forms of behavior. Today
people attend church not so much for what it teaches as for the fact that the
best people of the world have always gone to church. Today many a person
professing to be morally clean, following the mind poisoning rules of morals,
reads into an innocent act or beautiful piece of art an indecent or sinful mean-
ing. The world must come to realize that more sin and indecency exist in the
minds of men themselves than anywhere else and that it is only after the minds
of men have become clean and pure that the world can approach a high standard
of morals and religion. So it is the duty of the college man to think not only
clearly but cleanly and teach the world to follow his example.
It may seem that I have placed undue stress upon the importance of the
college man as a leader in the world but the college man should realize that since
he is afforded superior advantages he should be responsible for the doing of
greater deeds. I wish to say this not in any egotistic attitude but rather with
the idea constantly in mind of how the college man owes to the world because of
having received so much from it.
Perhaps I have laid undue stress upon some phases of our national faults
and not enough on some others but, realizing that one individual may see only in
a limited field? it should bring to the college man the greater realization of his
responsibility because of the greater number of tasks to be accomplished.
All these things must be accomplished slowly by a gradual readjustment of
the mind-s of the people and the college man may well begin now by practicing
what he is to preach later. It is a big responsibility, so big in fact that he can-
not, must not afford to fail.

What a world of memories the October Drive recalls to the true Ellsworth-
ianl Perhaps it is a recollection of a beautiful autumn day, clear and mild, or
perchance it brings it to the mind a picture of the woods at fall time turned from
a silvery greeness into an orange scarlet and a dreamy gorgeousness of coloringg
but it may be endeared by a rare friendship formed or an old one renewed.
The October drive is an annual event of great significance, time honored
custom which is as much a part of Ellsworth as the very students themselves.
It is looked forward to with great anticipation by new students and more so by
those alumni who are privileged to return to again renew old associations. Thus,
the spirit of good fellowship is promoted which is always so essential to a true
The last October Drive was held Saturday, October 6, 1917. Early in the
morn the air tinged with excitement and fervor of preparations. The day was
warm and balmy, a typical fall day and ideal for the purpose. Soon a procession
of cars gaily decorated in purple and old gold began wending their way toward
the "red bridge now painted black" which was found a short distance northwest
of the town of Alden. That place is a charming spot, bordering on the Iowa
River and sheltered on one side by a wooded hill,
Upon arriving a huge camp fire was built and soon the pleasant aroma of
coffee was drifting in the air. The tables were laid out to form an E. The
dinner was a gigantic affair with equally gigantic appetites to match it. Hoover:
was absent but was not missed, however his instructions concerning the
canning food were carried out very much in detail.
The entertainment of the afternoon was afforded by class stunts. The first
and second academy class truly showed their American spirit and enthusiasm by
giving a first aid demonstration on ambulance, accompanied by a doctor, sailor,
soldier and nurse in full uniform appeared on the scene. The wounded doll was
lifted from the ambulance and stretcher and administered first aid by the doctor.
The Junior Class presented "Evolution" which gained the first prize. Three
fat wiggly worms, began their struggle for existence. One was vanquished in
a quarrel, another devoured by a bird representing Environment, 'til one alone
remained in the Survival of the Fittest, to turn into a butterfly. However a
cunning scientist captured the butterfly and that was the 'end 'on 't'.
Interclass games of tennis and baseball brought the day to a victorious close.
At twilight one thinks of these words of the poet:
"One may build greater buildings
Fill your halls with sculpture and with paintings
But one cannot buy with gold the old associations."

your consciousness." And so on for about twenty minutes until Prof. Meyer be-
gins to get a little uneasy. Class yawn and try to look interested. Griz-"I
don't believe that, what about this theory in Physics?" Lengthy explanation by
professor. Spirited discussion. Miss M. "Well what about this theory in
philosophy that everything is motion?" Et cetera ad infinitum.
Prof. Meyer, fIn amazementj HIS that the bell? How fast the time has
flown. Well you have succeeded in taking up the time pretty well. Take the
next two chapters for next time and review this one. Class excused?
PROF. IVIAGEE LECTURES
I admonish you young men not to play with powder. It is an exceedingly
dangerous thing. Homes have become ashes, palaces have been ruined, cities
have been shattered, by this subtle power. Many a young man has had his
sight blurred or his cc-at collar ruined by powder. Wonderful is its power, tragic
It adds wonderfully to some things, but you must use care never to displace
it from its natural surroundings. Women and girls may safely dabble in pow-
der but again I say it is a dangerous thing for a young -man.
I also entreat you to beware of the subtle moonlight for its influence is ter-
rible. Men have been known to have become delirious from its effects. Moon-
light is also likely to give you freckles. The moonlight in the tropics is very
beautiful but it has lured many to their graves. Beware young men before it
is too late.
PROF. SMITH LECTURES.
Take heed young men from one older and more experienced than you lest
your arm go to waist too soon. Keep it strong and so that it may be used in time
of need. Do not strain it in vain encircling movements or in violent constrictive
efforts. In order that your arm may serve you well all your days guard it as a
precious jewel. Take an experienced man's advice, you can not afford to let your
arm go to waist.

Being the latest most unauthentic biography, collected from all unavailable
data, of the celebrities of that renowned institution.
Greutzmacher, Herald-better known as "Griz". Born somewhere a certain
number of years ago. He was funny from birth but it took some twenty-five odd
years for people to find it out. Jester-in-ordinary to the Princess May. Seems
to have been born a few years too late, a middle-ages monarch would have given
him a cap and bells, and his present jokes would have suited that period to a
nicety. Once Joke Editor for Student but was fired at end of thefirst
year because of complaint of the oldest subscriber that one of "Griz's" jokes made
him laugh. Nevertheless "Griz" is the longest laugh-maker in, Ellsworth.
He bids fair to replace Gabriel with his silvery trumpet call. He com-
menced his musical career when extremely small and always yelled in chordslof
the diminished seventh. A successful yell-master, always yells when he feels
like it. Leader of Ripsnorter Jazz band.
His sarcasm, 'tis'said, once bit a nail in two,
And yet his gentle glance a lady fair did woo.
Arnold, Lionel, otherwise known as 4'Benedict." Born at an ungiven date.
He lisped in numbers for the numbers came. The modern "Soloman." Knows
more about the outside of his text-books than his teachers know about the inside.
Favorite haunts Chem. Lab., Annual Room, and the Little Brick House on the
corner. A literary lion, a Demosthenes and a "fusser." Author of essay,
"Bombs versus Boquetsn also poem, "E'en tho he be an Editor, a man's a man for
a' that." '
Laipple, Kathryn, known as "Kay." Born several years ago of parents
engaged in the syrup business which accounts for the well known sweetness of her
disposition. Nevertheless is much interested in War. Has decided that her Mis-
sion in life is dispersing Old Sol's children throughout the world. A musical artist
rivaling Paderwiski, the only difference being in ability. Also a noted singer be-
ing able to rock the whole Hall with laughter by her magic voice. Favorite key,
low dough. The laughing Queen. A bold suffragist who has a "Billy" which
shecan use upon occasions. Author of "Let the Lower Lights be Burning."
Reynolds, Carrie-well-named for she carries the whole world's burden upon
her slight shoulders. Little, but oh my! What nature deprived her of in feet and
inches she added in energy and vim. Carrie is a veritable bookworm, for she lit-
erally lives with books. She must be well acquainted with "terra firmay' as she
is a fine "rooter." "A Latin Shark." She believes she can teach young America
to rehearse "hic, haec, hoc, huggus, huggus, huggusf' A spirited debaterg could
out argue Arnold himself. Though she seems very modest and demure-beware!
She is apt to be Trickey.
Johnson, A. Ray-Born-Date unrecorded. Was born with cashbook and
ledger under his arms, could calculate compound interest when four months old.
A poet of renown. Was formerly a successful banker but was bankrupt when

Paulson, J. V.-Born in Denmark, 1885-Spent some time in native country,
but soon outgrew that small land. Came to U. S. A. in 1890 thinking he would
have room to expand fully here. Chief engineer in one of the largest Manufac-
tories in Michigan for some time. Became Business Manager of the same firm
and was the originator of the business methods now used by all modern companies
in the world. Health failed and he moved on to a farm in Iowa where he recup-
erated. Left farm and then was secured, fortunately for Ellsworth, to assist in
running the college. While at this work he divided his time between the man-
agement of the college and the study of nature as he became a great lover of
nature While on the farm. A few of the things he has introduced into the Col-
lege are: latest means of Hooverizing, latest means of fussing, and most modern
means of making dates. His study for the most part has been devoted to aquatic
forms of life. It is nothing unusual for him to spend several hours with his
Hook in some quiet shady nook along the Iowa River. While fishing one day he
caught a Leach and became so interested in this form of life that since that
time he has devoted most of his time to the study of this peculiar fam-ily. Many
of treatises have been published and they are surpassed only by some of Plato's
and Aristotle's works. Nothing but fame is expected on the young man by his
many friends. He is the author of that noted monograph, "Why I believe that
Leach is the Most Beautiful Creature in the World."
Osee, Oscar Begosh, born two or three years ago in Norway and transplanted
at a tender age to Iowa. Responded vigorously to cultivation, shooting up at
a rapid rate. Is a hard worlzer when anyone is watching him. fNote-Our
detectives never saw him when there was no one watching him.J Renowned for
his wonderful ability as a pianist. Can spread the glad look over his handsome
young face. Oscar Begosh is very ambitious and would like to get Prexy's job
as he is well adapted to the administration office. He will get his Mark in the
world some day. Likes the movies especially the side attractions.

Billy Krieg. List and I shall shortly tell you, whence our warrior, William,
came, from the land of Minnesota at a time we will not name. Traveling south,
he left the Northlands, left the drear and gloomy Northlandsg went to seek a
fairer clime. In the happy land of Iowa, where the cornfields verdant wave, found
this youth a pleasant homeland at the College of the brave. Here he anchored
fast his fortunes, pledged his all to this dear school and as time went on his
talents into strength and beauty grew. Far abroaduwas spread the rumor of the
prowess of this man, how he every task had conquered by the simple phrase "I
can." Famed was he upon the gridiron, flashing on the diamond too and through-
out the state 'twas rumored pale debaters knew him too. Then, he learned the
art of living, how to love his fellowman and, sly Cupid leading onward, learned
to seek a woman's hand. Minnehaha, Laughing Water, was the woman of his
choice, though the days were dark and gloomy, still she made his heart rejoice.
But as naught is more delusive than the slippery ways of Fate, let us with him
luck and God-speed, lest his plea may come too late.
Canfield, Ilia, born sometime in the misty past-place unknown but her hair

agers. Author of that wonderful essay, "Why I Prefer Sheets to Blankets" and
that beautiful little nature study "Why Flickers Go to Church."

Senator Mitchell Attacks Senator Weakley.
Late last eveningtwhen the great ques-
tion "Loitering in the halls should not be tol-
arated . by the senators" was before the house
Senator Mitchell openly accused Senator
Weakley of standing in the hall and talking
to six men at the same time. Senator
Fanselow resented the personal attack on
Senator Weakley and had Senator Mitchell
removed from the house for twenty-four
hours. Senator Katherine Laipple was ap-
pointed as time keeper, but she forgot to
wind her watch so it stopped. Senator
Mitchell stayed out overtime as a result. It
is quoted by good authority that Senator
Weakley should have said that Senator
Mitchell misrepresented her, for she never
talked to less than seven or nine men at
a time. The house is awaiting the out-
come of the situation with great eagerness.

The Web has the extraordinary pleasure of presenting for the first time to
the American public a most wonderful series of literary productions. Three
young writers of great fame have very kindly consented to have their produc-
tions used on this page. However they are very modest and do not wish their
names revealed. The first of these is a snappy short story entitled "Heat1ess
Sissle! Sissle! Sist! Our drowsy minds awake to the fact that the hands of
the clock point to 6:30, and the heat has been turned on not many minutes before.
With a pang of desperation we put our feet on the carpetless floor and arise
with trembling limbs and chattering teeth. A delightful feeling of
shyness comes over us as we look upon the chilly depths of that wash basin, but
the deed must be done, and we set forth as conquerors to our next seat of joy.
Oh what an incomparably pleasant shaky feeling courses up and down our cool-
unquiet spines, as we await the opportunity to speak one word of conversation
between shakes. With qualms of fear we raise our cups of luke warm coffee to
our pale lips, fully expecting a deluge before it again reaches safety in its saucer
mate. The milk is the crowning joy, for with it we have the favorite dish of
our childhood days! ice cream.
The next production is a beautiful little poem pronounced by an Ellsworth
professor to be "just exquisite." It is entitled "The College Library."
The Ellsworth Library is made of red brick
Built on a wall, of stones, very thick,
The roof consists of bright red tile
That can be seen for almost a mile.
The rows of books look very inviting,
Some are philosophical, some exciting,
Some time each day we find our rest,
Reading the things which are the best.
The scene of many happy hours
Is in that library of oursg
Oh may the moment ne'er arrive
When we for reading will not strive.
Our third masterpieceis a wonderful essay showing marvelous depth of
thought and power of expression. It is entitled "An Exposition on the Evils of
"An Exposition on the Evils of Study."
An evil which is becoming a painful menace to the welfare of the bodies,
minds, and souls of the Ellsworth freshmen. is the unreasonable desire of the
instructors that they should spend a great amount of time in that nerve-racking,
heart-rending practice- called study. Study has a strong tendency toward
demoralizing the young, tender, unsophisticated brain of the freshman. From
the standpoint of the health of the body, it is a very dangerous thing. We might
cite thousands of instances where it has driven its subservient slaves to a sad,
premature state of physical ruination. Then, there is the health of the mind.
Even now, having experienced only a few short months of college toils, we see
those who show growing symptoms of disease within the human campanileg or,
perhaps a portion of the contents has been entirely eaten away, leaving only a
blank cavity, or air-space. Finally, there is the soul. Everyone knows the
change which is apt to take place in this organ when it comes in contact with
this deadly vice study. Cases have been known where individuals have actually
seen the very gates of the fiery realms, simply through books. Some of us
seem to have already become aware of the evils attending study and are
staying as far away from it as possible.
