CLASS OF 1914 D DEAR ELMHURST EAB ELMHURST, ' tis of thee, Abode of learning free, Of thee we sing. Place, where onr fathers learnerl. The chains of darkness spnrned. And after knowledge yearned.

Let music swell the breeze And ring from all the trees, Thy name proclaim ; Proclaim thy campus green, Thy trees with paths between. Thy field, oft vic ' try ' s scene. Long live thy name. Our fathers ' God, to thee, Staff of our ministry. To thee we sing. Long may our school be bright With Thine own holy light, Protect it by Thy might. Great God, our king.

CLASS OF 1914 SOON the steady and ever onward march of time will have brought Mr. Class of 1914 to the end of his so- journ at Elmhurst College. It will bear him on its mighty course and leave behind all that has been dear to him, ex- cept what his memories and this book will preserve for him. Once, as the doleful thoughts of parting with his dear old home were troubling him, he requested me to write the story of his life at Elmhurst College. At first, realizing my inability, I was reluctant to accept this honor, but fin- ally consented after he had shown me how impossible it was for him to write it himself. On September 1, 1909, a great event took place at Elm- hurst College. A son was born, who shortly afterwards was christened " Cla.ss of 1914. " He was indeed a very promising infant. Providence had prudently entrusted him to the care of such men as Director Irion and Pro- fessors Breitenbach, Brodt, Lueder, and Stanger. These guardians gladly took charge of this new-born son and soon learned to know his different idiosyncrasies and moods fully realizing his life was undergoing a constant change and that a gradual and progressive development was es- sential to his welfare. They soon discovered that he had an almost insatiable mental appetite and that his powers of absorption and assimilation were astounding. His rest- lessness at times became so perplexing that often these men consulted with each other as to the best plans for directing the infant ' s activity. It was their aim not only to develop early his mental ability, l}ut also to mould his charactei ' and make it pure, noble, and upright. They therefore tried to be Christ-like teachers, giving him a suitable at- mosphere and drawing his attention to that only which was good and uplifting. The babe grew rapidly in its preco- city. Fearing that too much at a time would only be detri- mental to his welfare, the guardians decided to give him a vacation. He was sent to distant friends to enjoy himself amid the scenes of nature. Vacation days bein g over, Master Class of 1914, who had outgrown his infancy, returned with a proud and noble air of conscious worth, as if he had a conception of the im- mense latent ability which lay within him awaiting the op- portunities to develop. His interests had broadened and his mental powers increased. It was therefore possible for the guardians to take him farther into the field of know- ledge. They called Professors Sorrick and Wilkinson to their assistance. To exercise his memory and strengthen his reasoning ability, they lavishly supplied him with such food as German, Latin, and Greek vocables, conjugations, and declensions ; noteworthy events in history, ]3ast and present ; algebraic rules and problems ; and facts concern- ing biology. During this time the child entered the " storm and stress " period of his life. With ,a sad and heavy heart he said farewell to two of his worthy guardians, Professors Lueder and Wilkinson. Two new guardians, Professors Arlt and C ' nisius, were called to fill the vacancies. Mean- while, time and gro vth advanced hand in hand. Again the guardians planned to give their son a vacation, and Master Class of 1914 was sent to distant friends. Upon his return, the guardians were pleased to meet the boy, now a youth, and gladly noted the results of tlic vacation. These were manifold. The youth had attained better jjliysical strength, new intellectual vigor, greater power of absorption and assimilation, and a wider diffusion of interest. The guardians, taking advantage of these changes, made the work more clifficidt by going deeper into the branches. The youth was, forthwith, introduced to Cjesar, who invited him to make his acquaintance. Only the eagerness to learn and augment his store of knowledge caused him to do so. But knowledge Avas not all he was seeking after. His desire for prominence and iudeix;n- dence among his brothers induced him. to take active part in the physical, social, and religious activities of the school, and establish himself as a special factor in the student body. To be distinguished from others, he selected the colors of In-own and gold to crown his triumphal march along the paths of knowledge. AVork and recreation caused the time to pass fleetly by and presently the vacation days were beckoning him to regain spent energy. The days of play and recreation took their com-se and again we find Master Class of 1914 in the old home. l?ut how different! He could hardly Ijo recognized as the youth who a short time before had put aside his books to answer the call to Nature. Approaching manhood was gradually transforming him. Xew mental and plivsical powers, new ideals and conceptions of life, and iiimiv independence had devolo|iiMl. flis views had lii ' oaili ' iied, his interest had be- come less selfish and his cliwrwclci ' . steadfast and altruistic. The work was proportionalrl increased so a,s to call forth the oiToi-ts to develop this nvw ti ' ansformation. Geometry was presented him to sti ' englben his mental efficiency ; the liistory of botb. tlie Englisb and Gei ' man literatures, to create a love for literature and to gi ' e him an insight into the formation and (levelo])ment of tlie languages; Sallust and Livy, to awaken Ins love for the old Eoman classics and to wai ' d off the possible squandering of a few spare moments ; and Xenophon and Plato to bring him in touch with the ancient Greeks. He was given the opportunity to develop his ability in public speaking. But these stud- ies still allowed him a little spare time to remain active, in the diffei ' ent phases of student life. At last the time came when the guardians decided that his remaining older ))rother must shift for himself. Master Class of 1914, in viewing the dominating and all-important air of this older brother was of the same opinion. Before his departure, though, he w as given a banquet by Master Class of 1914 to obliterate any possible hard feelings that perchance might have entered his heart. These last moments spent in each others ' company were meant not to be easily forgotten. Soon after, the old brother bade adieu and Master Class of 1914 was advised to seek again the haunts of nature. Having done this, Mr. Class of 1914 returned to the okl memorial halls to spend his last period of preparation under the paternal roof. He was now a man. With his faculties almost ftiHy developed and his love more embrac- ing, a larger vision of life had crept over his soul and pos- sessed it " vvith unbounded enthusiasm and courage. Fol- lowing the advice of his guardians he plunged farther into the recesses of English, German, Latin and Greek. Among his many new acquaintances were Cicero, Virgil and Ho- mer. He enjoyed translating the Novum Testanientum. Physics was very interesting to him and he realized more than ever before that this is indeed a iwonderful world. Besides this he was eager to become a leader. All the ac- tivities of the school grew and flourished under his leader- ship. Courageously he met failures and success, defeats and victories. On the base-ball diamond, foot-ball field, track, basket-ball floor, tennis court and in the gymnasium he won laurels. He distinguished himself in dramatics and music and was a powerful factor in social, religious, and missionary work. But now his turn to go out into the world to further prepare himself f or life ' s work is close at hand. When thinlving of parting, it may be forever, with the surround- ings and comforts of his youth which have entwined his heart as so many fetters, his soul is full of sadness and sorrow. Only the vision of future opportunities beckoning him to soothe his wounded heart causes him to become cheerful, knowing that somewhere he is needed to further the work of the one great Guardian, the Lord Jesus Clirist. Herman Gebhardt, (Historian). CLASS OF 1914 A nick-name is the heaxnest stone the devil can throw at a in an. — Anon. Hail to the Vice-president of our class! " Puss " is a well- known nick-name of unknown origin. It is only of late that it has become a fitting cognomen for our soccer manager, for only lately has he found a companion in a fellow-student, who caresses " Puss " and is caressed by " Puss. ' ' On account of his fairness and quickness he was appointed bas- ket-ball referee, a job which he asserts was a thankless one, but even more thankless was the one of umpire in base-ball, for there he almost lost a " prop " under the cannon-like fire of Elmhurst. May " Puss " encounter easier propositions in life than have been his lot at college. Better- to go to bed early and be ivide awake all day, than to stay wp late and nod all day. H. Enry. Waldo, president of our class, manager of base-ball and captain of basket-ball, was a favorite among the students. He was in the pressing firm (we mean pres- sing clothes), as a member of which he toasted brown the trousers and parched the coats. May he always be a favorite a- mong his associates. Probably his being a favorite accounted for his boldness in doing what he pleased. Arno Franke Home people never grin, they alu ays sin He. — Bovee. Probably the best production of our breakfast-table " Force " were the " Sunny-Jim " smiles of this " Hawk-eye " lad. Wherever he went, in class-room or cam- pus, his smile always accompan- ied him. " Sunny Jim ' ' showed his agility on the soccer field, where he received much applause. May his smile never wear off, nor be darkened by the frown of his " dearest one. " Nobody loves a fat man. Anon. Franke, universally known as " Tubby, " in spite of his avoir- dupois, rivaled Mantell on the stage. To say nothing about his confused manner when a dis- cussion of feminine characters was at hand, would be slighting " Tubby, " for he invariably red- dened from ear to ear and left the room. As a Hercules he flopped many a vicious opponent on the soc- cer field, thus avoiding many de- feats for Elmhurst. This, how- ever, was only the dawn of his athletic career, for he showed his greatest (?) ability as mana- ger of the basket-ball team. If our Arno displays so much len- iency in his domestic affairs — poor Arno! Kurz und buendig. — C. Kehr. Fuehring was dubbed with the cognomen " Shorty, " because he was knee-high to a grass-hopper. His size, however, did not de- tract from his ability on the ath- letic held or in the class-room, for there he shone in soccer and basket-ball, Latin and Greek. Be- cause of his love for and attach- ment to the German language, with its soothing, musical words, to him has been dedicated this appropriate German quotation. He was often seen haranguing some timid freshman, with the south pole of his mouth trying to meet his left ear, seeking thus to convey the idea that he was a " hard guy. " Hoffentlich wird diese Eigenschaft des Burschen nach und nach schwinden! He is a Christian who is man- fully struggling to live a Christ- ian life. — H. W. Beecher. " Gebby, " ' known for his sense of duty, not only as an individ- ual, but also as president of our Mission Society and as senior of our class, rivaled Sherlock Holmes in detecting every stray piece of chalk on the class-room floor, and in discovering an un- erased period on the black-board. Much graphite he wasted thru friction, caused by recording the " Strichs " of the " basement " fre- quenters. May we native Ameri- cans profit by the example of our Canadian brother. " It is in learning music that many a youthful heart learns to loiw. — Ricard. Many a shoe our violinist dodged while wrenching those deafening strains from his G, D, A, E strings. Even his hair was musical, being crimpier than Paderewski ' s. He was ever happy and ambitious; never satisfied with his " Zensuren, " even tho he withdrew from the battle- field of Greek and Latin with a 10 +. His ambition and musi- cal talent will certainly aid him in reaching the topmost round of the ladder. The croak of a little frog is m ost irritating. — Anon . Heuser, alias " Shrimp, " the man from " Smoky City, " showed his ability as stage manager and declaimer. An ear trumpet was never needed to hear " Shrimpy, ' ' but a microscope was always needed to see him. Had it not been for the shrill whistle and dictatorial tone on the soccer field, the players would never have known that there actually was a referee. We trust that later in life " Shrim p " will closer adhere to the precept: " Little people should be seen more than heard. " Herman Heuser 19 Armin Hosto 7 there is anything hetter than to he loved, it is living. Anon. " HiiUy, " Cc ' ii)(ain and ex-mana- ger of track and treasurer of the class, won his fame thru physi- cal skill and was thus chosen as pilot for our ship, the Athletic Association. " Hully ' s " hole-proof socks held whole dozens of holes after being worn for a whole day. The complaint about these socks caused him much worry. Don ' t let these holes worry you, " Hul- ly, ' ' worry about something worth while. A hjush is heautiful, but often inconvenient. — Goldoni. " Bimbles " never awoke with- out blushing, never washed with- out blushing, never crossed the campus without blushing, never masticated his food without blush- ing, never recited without blush- ing, never smiled without blush- ing, but never did he blush dur- ing his slumbers. Seldom was he heard, but when his tongue was loosed, lo, forth poured a stream of psychological and phil- osophical words and phrases. His words of wisdom will long be remembered. Among them, hut not one of them. — Byron. The twentieth century Greek translators could not compete with " Read ' s " ability in trans- lating Homer, for his transla- tions were invariably original. This Illinois lad was just the contrary of the Missouri repre- sentatives, who were disposed to tell " fish stories. " Kead was ever an adherent of the healthy maxim, " Si tacuisses philosophus mansisses. " But " Kead " is sure to succeed in later life, for still waters run deep. Youth holds no society with grief .—Euripides. Paul I., the infant of our class, who thru his coquettish actions always assumed the feminine role in dramatic productions, often perplexed the professors thru his interrogations and phil- osophical fancies. His girlish giggle was ever resounding thru the hall, often disappointing his light-headed class-mates, who ex- pected to find a fairer owner of this voice. May Paul ' s future calling place him where it will not be necessary for him to keep his trousers at " high-water. ' ' Even dress is apt to inflame a man ' s opinion of himself. Home, " Cobb, " our tonsorial artist, so disfigured the locks of his patron ' s that the poor fellows were almost ashamed to go home for vacation. After having thus distorted them he eased their pains by means of his melodious voice. His lucky star favored him with a passion for athletics, as a consequence of which he shone in both soccer and base- ball. He had a sharp eye for every speck of dirt on his per- sonage, often gazing for hours to detect a flaw. May Cobb ' s voice and preciseness some day win him a wife who will appre- ciate his admirable talents. What a heard hast thou got! Thou hast more hair on thy lip than Dobbin, my fill-horse has on his tail. — Shakespeare. " Kitty, " a very intelligent fel- low, was one who never feared to voice his opinion. .He was a strong man of the class, develop- ing his muscle by steering the hot iron up and down trousers- legs until they shone. He con- ceived the idea that he could not drink beverages without having them strained, hence he culti- vated a cute little black mus- tache, for which reason he was often mistaken for a professor, providing he kept his fountain of wisdom closed. Probably he may some day be a professor of Physics. 21 William Kuhagen An aivkward man can never do ' justice to his intelligence, to his intentions, or to his actual merit. — Churchill. Herman, our tall, ungainly brother and an ardent lover (?) of Greek, was ever a favorite of " Home, Sweet Home, " or some attraction near there. His sev- enth and first day of every week were spent away from College, according to his statement a- round his father ' s hearth. His soothing melodies on the pipe- organ held every one spell-bound and when he played the piano, he moved his audience to tears or laughter at will. Success to him who leaves us. am indeed, sir, a surgeon to old shoes. — • . Caesar. Kuhagen, a cool and level- headed Bensenville lad, who was never honored with a nickname, was one of our pedagogues. In passing Kuhagen ' s shoeshop and noticing the steady and regular fall of the hammer, one could not be convinced that a master was at work; when passing the organ while Kuhagen was play- ing, however, one would imagine that he had attacked this instru- ment with his hammer, with the same ferocity, which he had be- fore displayed on the shoes. We hope that his future scholars will be as apt as he has proved him- self. A talkative fellow may de com- pared to an unbraced drum, which beats a wise ' man out of his wits. — Fetham. Paul II. Paul! Paul! Such an eloquent flow of erudite dis- course! Thou art ever happy and contented, ambitious and gentlemanlike. Thou art surely a Webster number two, a dic- tionary, for as a dictionary is no connected story, so are thy words as a linkless chain. In thy flights of wonderful imag- ination thou hast often pictured thyself taking the place of the honorable Wm. J., but when a- roused from thy day-dreams, thou foundest thyself on the plat- form before the class, which was bursting with criticism over thy Ciceronian speeches. Never mind, Paul, keep it up; you will some day attain the rank of Cicero or even Wm. J. Fred McQueen Great talkers are like leaky vessels; everything runs out of them. — C. Simmons. Did you ever hear such a chat- terbox as " Mack, " ' alias " Stub- by " ? At times however, he was so sincere and sedate that he could easily have been mistaken for a country deacon or a rural parson. Latin classics, congrat- ulating themselves on a little rest, trembled whenever they noticed Mack ' s proximity. As an ardent Sunday-school worker, it is to him we owe our interest in Sunday-school work, for he start- ed our Teacher ' s Training class, the Philobiblicum. He was re- nowned as a critic, not of teach- ings, but of teachers. We ex- pect some day to see Mack as a founder of a home for deceased Latin poets. Comh down his hair; look, look! it stands upright again. Shakespeare. " Al " attained thru his dram- atic ability the presidency of the Literary Society. We do not undervalue his voice as a mem- ber of the College Quartette, for his bass notes, when rumb- ling up from his esophagus, caused us to applaud with ad- miration. He is greatly in- debted to the institution for placing a hall mirror near the main entrance; for who used it mere than he did? His auburn hemp, which he was everlast- ingly caressing, together with his deep voice, is sure to make him a favorite wherever he goes. Let us have peace! Ü. 8. Grant. " Harty, " even though he en- tered our ranks late, has won the favor of all students, great and small, tall and short, thin and stout. His lack of ability on the athletic field was more than counterbalanced by his a- chievements in the class room. Strutting about, pencil behind his ear, pad in hand, he was always ready to deliver those unwelcome bills. Bright and early every morning, also immediately after dinner, he cheerfully finds his way to some unknown part of town, where he he works; but from his affectionate ways we are led to tease our Harty. Alfred Meyer Walter Meisenheimer Paul Schmidt He ' s gone, and who knows how lie may report thy words by add- ing fuel to the flame. — Milton. " Meisie,, " the scandal reporter of the college, visited room after room seeking to satisfy the crav- ings of his odoriferous pipe. He invariably ranked highest among the college gossipers, always ready with that ( worn-out ) phrase, " Oh, that reminds me of a fellow down home. " He had a parallel coincidence for every story related, sometimes allow- ing his imagination to reach such heights that he blushed at his own narration. Undoubtedly this characteristic of Meisie ' s was the reason for his being foremost in the History of Ger- man Literature, for he often withdrew from the battle field with honor. Can worse disgrace on man- hood fall, than to be born a whitehead and be baptized a Paul. — S. Johnson. Paul III., better known as " Schmidty, " was our Y. M. C. A. president, student council chair- man, class secretary, and foot- ball captain. All these positions vouch for Paul ' s popularity a- mong his fellow students, even tho he was always hav ing one of them as the butt of his jokes. He had the honor of be- ing the whitest of white-heads, though he was decidedly not a tow-head. The advice given to Holtcrf applies more particularly to Schmidty, for it was very likely that worry about " some- thing " had caused his hair to turn white. Welcome, my old friend. Longfellow. Paul IV. Another Paul! It was Paul ' s whole ambition to make everyone as cheerful as himself, for he never neglected to " pump the handle ' ' no matter how often he met you. He had the Baseballitis to such a degree that he even went so far as to root for the Browns and Cardi- nals, whose whole ambition, it seems, was to keep the cellar warm. His motto was -. " Never worry! " It was this character- istic that made him a true pat- tient to the above named tail- enders. His smiles and extended hand will never fail to win the hearts of his bitterest enemies. If I ever am a teacher, it will be to learn more than to teach. Mme. De Luzy. " Schlinky, " who took much pleasure in his undeserved cog- nomen, " psychological John, " was the " gang-boss " of the Meusch Memorial Library. On the other hand he took much displeasure in his deserved cognomen " Liz- zy " with which he was dubbed as a result of his using a cute little vanity box and powder. His exasperation on account of " Lizzy " was so intense that he stopped using " Violet " talcum powder just to spite the naughty boys. Poor John! now his nose shines. He excelled in instru- mental and vocal music, being leader of the Orpheus Glee Club and was renowned as a full- fledged pedagogue. Fred Schweinfurth Martin Seybold Those curly locks, so aptly twined, whose every hair a sonl dotli hind. — Carew. Our " Freddie, " a true Ken- tuckian, was an able manager of our track team, and a winner in tennis. Altho Freddie, as an athlete was much exposed to Boreas, his epidermis neverthe- less showed a remarkable degree of delicacy, for he was extremely " touchy. " He liked to tease, but was averse to being teased. He was a skillful hairdresser, but dressed only his own hair, in the nicety of which he took great pride. A college joke to cure the Mues. — Swift. " Socks, " as an epithet is the family heirloom given to all the descendents of the Seybold fam- ily who studied at Elmhurst. His piping, cricket-like chirp could not be imitated, no matter what vocal ability the imitator had. He was never contented unless he could spring his childish, in- nocent little jokes on some un- suspecting victim. Just as a hen cackles proudly after having laid an egg, so would Socks cackle after having successfully perpe- trated a joke. His feminine voice allotted him a place as a female character on the stage, where he was the hit of the season. We wonder whether Socks has joined the ranks of the suffragettes or antis. 24 don ' t like to talk to people H lio ulnays agree ivith me. Carlyle. Paul v., a most diligent stud- ent, excelled in German essay writing. He often endeavored to apply his authority as senior of the Music House, but seldom suc- ceeded, for he was no Samson, but rather a Zacchaeus. Pro- bably it was for this reason that he always agreed with the opin- ions of those with whom he talked. When reciting, it would be more convenient for Paul to have a gyroscope, instead of his hand, to steady his swiftly re- volving brain. Will someone at- tempt to invent a brain gyro- scope for Paul? Silence is one great art of con- versation. — Anna More. According to this quotation, our Eddie is surely a renowned conversationalist, for he always thinks twice before he speaks once. He was always on the spot with a helping hand when any work was to be done, and always did his duty with a smile. It was a rare treat to hear Eddie ' s muffled laughter, for it was contagious. He was never averse to losing a sleepy game of checkers or a tedious game of chess. His readiness to please everybody will guard him a- gainst failure. Happy am I; from care I am free! Why aren ' t they all con- tented, like me? — Carew. Jonas, our efficient electrician, loved skillful manual labor bet- ter than naoderate mental labor. His love was often elsewhere, too; in fact, it became so strong that he decided to leave us be- fore his last year was finished. No matter what difficulty arose, Jonas always wore that same " I-should-worry " smile Robert Zeiler 25 1914 CLASS POEM BY ALFRED T. MEYER. The robin gay proclaims tlie birth of Spring And with a voice surpassing Amphion ' s lyre The aerial herald comes to greet his king. And nature with new efforts to inspire. The golden sunbeams and the balmy air, Have raised earth ' s fleecy veil of purest white, And she, the queen of all that ' s grand and fair, Unequaled beauty shows and brings to light. Now Spring, adorned in all his pristine channs, And welcomed by the songster ' s clarion call. Embraces Flora in his stalwart arms. In verdure clothes the fields and forests tall. Where ' er the eye is turned in ecstasy The earth seems resurrected from the dead. Ah surely ! ' tis no dream, not fantasy ! For flow ' rs reveal themselves where ' er we tread. The dewbespangled morning-glory greets us When golden Aurora ' s magic spell is spent; The violet, too, in purple robe now greets us, Jove ' s nectar in the tulip ' s cup is pent. The silvry valley lily rings its bell In greeting to the newborn cerulean sky, And frolicsome Zephyrs dance from hill to dell ; Unburdened is the heart of ev ' ry sigh. 26 But why this scene depicting Spring most sacred. Why let fond mem ' ries linger of the past ? Ah ! ' tis the lane to childhood we again tread : The bygone days o ' er us their spell now cast. Once more we stroll in spirit thru the meadow, The home of larks, of flow ' rs and busy bees ; Where whitefleeced lambs are ambling near the hedgerow There sit we, garlands wreathing under trees. Oh lovely Spring ! Thou king of all the seasons ! We fain would keep Thee with us all the year. But God, for some divine and secret reasons Purposed that youth in due time disappear. Now June has brought the parting of the ways, And summer to lovely Spring has fallen heir ; Gone are the gay and ne ' erforgotten days When hearts were free of every thought of care. Yes, now the gentle days of Spring are o ' er. Life ' s summer with a vict ' ry has begun, — Our banner of brown and gold we ne ' er did lower, — Our just reward, commencement day, is come. To realize Spring ' s hopes and high aml ition We now must strive with all our might and main, — Not caring for the world ' s scorn and derision. Like ivy, upward climb, new heights to gain. Like -unsealed cliffs the future looms before us : A veil of myst ' ry all its hours enshrouds ; Tlie beacon light of faith, though, towers above us And will to sunshine turn all darksome clouds. And if perchance the heart be sad and dreary Because life ' s battle proves too great a strain. Then will our knightly spirit make us cheery, For sunshine always eonieth after rain. To Alma Mater OAve we our strong armor, Our shield of faith was moulded by her hands ; Whene ' er we think of her our heart beats, warmer, Our thanks to her are many as the sands. ' Twas she that started us on our life ' s journey. Endowed us with great gifts of richest gold. Has made us strong like champions of the tourney, Our due respect thru all our life she ' ll hold. And when at last life ' s summer has departed And blushes cease to tinge the rose ' s cheek. When trees, their summer foliage discarded. Their beauty in the redlipp ' d fruitage seek, Then gather we the rich and hard-earned harvest And reap what we in early youth have sown ; No longer will we have to brave the tempest And journey o ' er rugged paths unknown. Eeluctant, with many a painful heartthrob, Depart we from our Alma Mater ' s shore; When surging billows fond ambitions rob. Then think we of the golden days of yore. Oh ! may the lessons taught by her be ever Our pilot on life ' s dark and troubled sea. May time and distance ne ' er our friendship sever. Our aim and motto e ' er ' Excelsior " be ! THE THINGS THAT COUNT BY THEO. W. HOLTORF. 1. There dwelt in a faraway land by the sea A maiden both pretty and good, Who fain would have listened to Cupid ' s decree And married someone if she conld. 2. But never a man came to call upon her, N " o, never a blessed soul ; And very much downcast she began to confer With " Doctors of Love " in the " Scroll. " 3. And then she applied herself diligently To chemistry, books and to law; To science and natural philosophy — ■ But still there was somewhere a flaw. 4. Still never a man sought her out to woo, And none tried to conqr;er her heart. So she said to herself : " There is still umch I can ' t do, I must study both music and art. " 5. In a very short time she could play Beethoven From A flat down to Z sharp; And for hours, and for days again and again She worked the old family harp. 6. But no man would tarry within her abode Par after the hour of ten. And in spite of the kindness upon them bestowed, They never would call there again. 7. " Oh, what in the world is the use, " she said, " To know everything irnder the sun? Unmarried I ' ve lived and so I ' ll be dead When this life ' s work is done. " 28 8. So donning a faded and ancient dress She learned from her mother to cook ; And soon she forgot all her gloomy distress — She closed up the past like a book. 9. Now it came that a prince, who traveled that way. Was asked to come in and dine; And, thanking the ladies most heartily, He tarried and drank of their wine. 10. And when the dessert and the pie were brought in. His heart overflowed with delight; He resolved to stay on and begin once again. For he knew what he did must be right. 11. " Please tell me dear ladies, " he said in delight, " 10 baked this delicious pie ? " Then the maiden demure and with cheeks rosy bright. Said modestly, " Lo, it was I ! " 12. Whereon the prince ' ' rose from the table and took The blushing little maid in his arms ; And said as he did so, " The girl, who can cook Like that, does not need other charms ! " 13. " Lo, I ' ll wed you tonight, little girl, if you will. " So wed her he did on that eve. And their honeymoon trip was a continual thrill; The happiest on the earth, I Ijelieve. 1-1. Xow she who has tarried long, bravely affirms, " Let those worship art who desire; But my art I ' ll enjoy from my Browning and Burns, As I cook hubby ' s meals on the fire.

Eleven players are needed to make up a as center-halfback, had his foot hurt so that he was unable team. Any part of the body may be used in propelling the to play the rest of the season. Other players were dis- ball, except the hands and arms. The goalkeeper is the qualified because they were pronounced ineligible by ttie only one who is allowed to use his hands. He guards the faculty. Often second team players had to show their met- goal which is eight feet high and eight yards long, thru tie whenever first team men were disqualified, which the ball must pass before a goal is scored. The second team played two games against Crane High Soccer was first started at Elmhurst as early as 1880, School, winning both games. In the first game against but official games against outsiders have been recorded only this High School, W. Berndt shot 2 goals, E. Lehman -1, since 1909. Every team since then, has been trying to p.

Of all the sports in the catalogue of physical activities of the Elmhiirst collegians, basket-ball is of the latest ori- gin. Only since the erection of Irion Hall and the new gymnasium in 1912, has this sport acquired a permanent place on the list of College athletics and intercollegiate contests. Before this, only a comparatively small number of games had been played, as the limited accomodations of the old gymnasium could not aff ' ord home games with out- side teams. All due opportunities offered by the new gym- nasium were immediately grasped and consequently the first team to make its debut under the auspices of extended schedule in 1913, was very successful, gaining eight victor- ies out of a total number of ten games. The season of 1914 opened with a most fit and proper introductory remark, in the very agreeable form of a com- plete victory for the " Blue and White. " If ever an omen predicted truthfully, the augury contained in this triumph adhered to all the laws of veracity, as a review of the con- secutive events will prove. The inaugural game of the season was played on the 10th of January, Lane College being the opposing element of tlie contest. From the start the outcome of the game was ()l)vious, but nevertheless the Junior aggregation put up a game fight, and contested the pending result to the very last. When the time-keepers sounded the final call how- ever, the Elmhurst five were the acl nowledged victors with a score of 57 — 23. On January 24, the basket-ball fans of the college re- ceived a somewhat clouded perception of the future of tlieir developing protög(5. Loyola University, a team with an undefeated record, appeared upon the field, and admm- istered a defeat unto our College team. We were, however, handicapped in every instance, in weight, and superior class, and after having taken a final reckoning of this game we found the score of 41—12 not so discouraging after all, in fact it was the stimulus that promoted most earnestly the excellent work of the following contests. The Elgin Academy five was invited to our floor on February 14, and our hospitality to the Academy team took its course along the triumphal road. The fates were grac- ious unto us, and we were able to lay another palm, bearing the numerals 76—15, at the feet of the goddess of Victory. On February 21, St. Stanislaus University was the next foe to be subdued, that the fame of our team might gain the next rung in its ascent. The contest was in all respects a close one, bringing out the well-deYcloped teani-Avork of the Elmhurst quintette, gained in tlie past weeks of dili- gent practise. The victory included in the score of 41 — 30, was only the due reward of faithful persistency. Tlie F idler Park Team was the next victim to acknow- ledge the fact that we had a l)aslvet-ljall team of by no means deficient record. The eve of February 28, found us rejoicing over the score of 39 — 15. To the honor of tlie vanquished it may be said that they carried the true sports- man spirit through the entire game, but the spoils belonged to the victors. On March 7, the College team and official retinue mi- grated into a foreign land to play St. Stanislam University of Chicago a return game. Our expectations were severely shaken however, and we withdrew from the scene of the fray with a second defeat tagged on to our splendid career. The strange floor, and the crippled condition of our team, two of the regulars being out, will readily account for the resultant, 53 — 24. On the afternoon of March 21, the second team of the E. C. contested the ability of the renowned Elmhurst Town- 34 team and set them down alxjut fifty per cent in their esti- mation. The score, 33—18, did not leave the least doiil)t v ith anyone as to who should receive the laurels. On the eve of the same date, the first team again umde a pilgrimage, having received a short-order challenge from tlie Wheaton Academy. The game was hotly contested throughout, and Wheaton had not the proverbial " cinch " in asserting lier superiority, which the said team finally did, however, after ruuch indispensable labor. Elmhurst withdrcAV with the third and last defeat of the season. Score 21—11. March 28 closed the season with two contests, resulting in a dual victory for Elmhurst. WJieaton Academy and Creme High School invaded our territory, only to withdraw therefrom with defeat in their wake. The game with Wheaton was a keen contrast to the one of the previous week as the score of 41 — 24 will indicate. The Wheaton Acadeniv team were taken with surprise from the very first, and were not able to regain their equililjrium during the remainder of the game. After a ten-minute intermission, the Elndiurst five tackled the Crane H. S. and another punishment to strano- ers was administered in a most effective way, the score 37 — 6 being witness thereof.

This was due to two reas- ons: hrst, because the track has always had a strong rival in baseball, the popular sport among the students ; and sec- ondly, the interest seemingly was lacking, whicli is by all means the main thing in order to have a winning team. The season of 1912, in a measure overcoming t hese handicaps, has been recorded as the most successful since Elmhurst has had a " track team. During this season four college records were established ; 100 yard dash in 10 2-5 by J ' . George ; 50 yard dash in 5 2-5 by J. George ; high jump, 5 ft. 6 in. by C. Sherf ; and the relay team (consisting of Hohman, Schweinfurth, Arends, George) ran the 670 yard relay in 1 min. 15 2-5 sec. The track team of 1913 was disabled by the absence of of several 1912 stars and there- fore the season could not Ije recorded as a success. Xever- theless one good was deri -ed from the 191; season: young material was seasoned for 1911:. Up to this year, tlic track team consisted of fifteen to twenty members and tiierefore never could hold a meet away from Elmhurst. This year, liowever, Ehuhurst has the highest hopes of organizing an invincible team of twelve men. Four meets are to be held, three at home and one abroad. " With such seasoned men as Holtorf (Gapt.), Tepas, Pol anz, Schwarze, Franke, F. Schaefer, Koehler, Gebhard, A. Egli, 0 Egii, Brethauer, Berndt, and the writer, and with several good recruits, the prospects of a winning twelve-man team at Ehuhurst College for 1914 are bright. With plenty of hard work, with the proper interest, and with the spirit of success forging to the front, the track season of 1914 ought to surpass that of 1912 Ijy a great margin. 36 R.

" These are some of the expressions heard from the en- thusiastic fans at a baseball game. But instead of knock- ing it out of the lot or even getting a single, we heai; the calm tones of the umpire calling : " Strike three, batter out. " Then instead of cheers for the expected home-run, silence reigns supreme, except for a few remarks of sympathy, passed to console the strike-out victim. After the game the different plays are discussed, criticized, lauded, and fin- ally dropped. If the home team lost, some wise fan gener- ally shows the players where and how they could have won ; if they won, all " bone-headed plays " are forgotten and each player is a hero. Yes, undoubtedly baseball is a great game ; it is America ' s greatest national sport. It is played on diamonds smooth as glass, it is played on city back-lots, and it is also played at Elmhurst College. It has been played here for a great number of years and probably will he played for a great number of years to come. In former years our team, led by good men, has always been a winner, ranking high among amateur teams. As our season of 1914 has just begun we can hardly say with cer- tainty what will he the outcome; however, it is safe to maintain that the team of 1914, filled with ambition and baving the desire to equal, if not to exceed, the former records made by our teams, will do all in its power to up- hold the standard of the baseball field. We are very much handicapped by the loss of several good men, who have graduated and gone elsewhere, but we hope to find new material that will strengthen the places thus left vacant. Of course we do not expect to develop a " Ty Cobb " or a " Joe Jackson, " nor do we expect to develop a team that will contend with the Philadelphia Athletics for the world ' s championship, but we do expect to have a team worthy to represent Elmhurst against any High School or college team in the vicinity of Chicago. TENNIS BY P. C. SCHWEINFURTH. Tennis could in other words be expressed as the " only Sunday afternoon sport, " and on this day it is very popu- lar among the stiidents. In all, there are four coui ' ts lo- cated on the campus, and these are continually in use on Sunday afternoons. ]5ach court is supported by a sepa- rate association of approximately eight members. The names of the four courts and their respective presidents are as follows : The Alpha, F. Schweinfurth, Ii. The Halcyon, A. Franke, ' 14. The Olympic, H.Heuser, ' 14. The Beta, P. Goebel, ' 16. Of these courts the Alpha has always been known as the liome of the l)est players. In the spring of 1913, a toar- nament of tlie four courts was held. The Alpha, (repi-e- sented by H. Pfeiffer and F. Seliweinf urth, ) and the Hal- cyon, (represented by P. Winger and R. Möhr,) entered the finals, the former winning the championship laurels. The Olympic and Beta courts finished third and fourth respectively. The tournament of 1913 Avas such a success, that the sentiment of ardent tennis admirers is, to nvake the tennis tournament an annual affair. 39 FßED FUEHBING Theodoee Holtorf 41 THE JUNIORS Zr r T; J- L - ' Locher, A.

For many years the Amphion, better termed the college orchestra, has played no small part in the college life. To- day it has practically established itself as a perjnanent or- ganization. Numbering twenty-two members this school term, the orchestra meets weekly to practise under the direction of its able leader, Prof. C. G. Stanger. A com- paratively large number of instruments are represented ; there are six first violins ; six second violins ; one viola ; two flutes ; two cornets ; one clarinet ; one trombone ; one cello; one bass violin, and a piano. At every occasion when one of the college associations presents a play before the public, the orchestra is called upo n to furnish the music. But especially at the musical concerts, given in the spring of each year, do the services of the orchestra prove invaluable. Its undertaking at the concert this year was more ambitioirs than usual; it ac- companied the college chorus in Julius Becker ' s melodra- matic cantata Oolumbus. THE ARION BY P. KEHLE. The Arion, or better known as simply the " Band, " was organized in 1892, and has ever since been a permanent in- stitution. Its purpose is to entertain its hearers as well as to instruct its enthusiasts in the art of musical hamony. On the Festival Sundays the " Band " is called upon to ac- company the church chorals in unison with the organ, thereby beautifying the musical part of the services. But the most important day for onv " Band " is the " Seminar Fest, " which is celebrated annually towards the close of the school year. On this occasion, our " Band " not only receives the visitors at the railway station with its wel- coming tunes, but also beautifies the religious services with its sacred strains, and in the afternoon renders a very ex- cellent concert for the guests attending. At the present date the Ai-ion has a membership of 30 musicians. It is conducted b) Leonard Brink of the Junior class, who is trying his utmost to keep it up to its former standard, and is succeeding as far as is possible with the raw material which he has to deal with. 46 YOUNG MEN CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OFFICERS p.

BY PAUL AAQieii the Meusch Society turned over its libi ' ary to the faculty, it became necessary to make some arrangements for the continuation of the former reading room. The or- ganization of a Y. M. C. A. under the State Association provided the means to overcome the difficulties. It did not, however, confine its activities to the reading room, but has step by step advanced its activities, in every branch of the three main divisions of all Y. M. C. A. ' s, namely, spiritual, physical and social. Under our spiritual activities, we would mention the Mission Society. Altho an independent organization, it has been very closely connected with the Y. M. C. A. work. The President of this society is the chairman of the Mis- sions committee, and thus a member of the cabinet. As the Mission Society has a retrospect of its activities else- t diere in these pages, we shall go on to our Teacher ' s Train- ing class. The Teacher ' s Training class, known as the Philobiblicum, has some excellent woi ' k to its credit. Dur- ing this school year two classes have graduated, and a third will before this term is ended. Although a course on the study of the Bible is in the curriculum of the college, many students have nevertheless found time and interest for the participation in this work. " Training for Service " l)y H. Moninger is being used as a text-book. In spite of the time taken up by the Mission and Teach- er ' s Training class meetings, there have been frequent prayer and song services held. The Student Council may also be mentioned as a branch of the spiritual division. It is composed of mem- l)ers of the cabinet who were willing to be active in calling to the attention of students any actions which were not up to the standard of good fellowship. A difficult task it was, SCHMIDT. but we are glad to state that a start has been made. As our physical activities are of the Athletic Society, also an in- dependent organization, we shall hasten to our work in the field of social activity. Our Y. M. C. A. Beading Room, in which current lit- erature in daily, weekly, and monthly periodicals is alnmd- ant, has offered much pleasure and knowledge to members. Its location near the classrooms gives the members an op- portunity to spend many leisure moments there. The game rooms, consisting of the three first floor rooms on the north end of the Music Hall, have given great pleasure to all those interested in games. Xewly ecjuipped with tables, chairs and pictures, they have been the scene of many an exciting chess, checker and carrom game. The room at the west end, which is the smallest of the three, has served as cabinet and student council meeting room. And last, but by no means least, we mention the ban- quets of the year. A reception banquet was given the new- comers in the early part of the school-year ; a most jovial and enjoyable evening was spent on Hallowe ' en, when con- tests of comical character were held, to the delight of all the members ; the new officers were given an inauguration banquet on the second of April. Perhaps some may feel that a great part of the program has been omitted, if no mention is made of the appetizing desserts, provided by the committee in charge of the occasions. Much has been done during the short existence of oi;r Y. M. C. A., thanks to the helpful co-operation of our Advisory Board and especially of the State Secretary, Mr. 0. E. Pence, but much more is to be done. May divine assistance always lead our Association to great accomplish- ments and higher ideals. SCHILLER LITERARY SOCIETY BY ALFKED T. The Schiller Literary Society needs no introduction to the Alumni. It was organized on the 22nd of Kovember, 1885, as a Young Men ' s Society and was changed in 1894 to a literary society. The purpose of this society, as known to all, is to give its members opportunity to become efficient in debating, declaiming, lecturing and in music. At the beginning of the current school-year, a new con- stitution was drawn up and adopted by the society. This constitution is not a revision of the old, being entirely in- dependent of the latter. Many changes have been niade and new features added to the program evenings. The Schiller-bote is a thing of the past, since the new constitu- tion demands strict discipline ; the Schiller-bote has always been a detriment to good order, for the jokes of the humor- ist tended to influence certain individual members to take the rest of the program, especially the recitations, as a joke. The members have become accustomed to the new order of things and fines now cease to be a necessity. The writer, though a lover of humor himself, agrees with others that the Schiller Society has a different mission to perform than merely to entertain, for we are a literary society named after the great Schiller. Much can be accomplished in the society meetings that cannot be done in the class- rooms for lack of time. It is our sincere wish that in future years the society will reach a much higher standard, for there is much left undone. The office of permanent critic has also been removed, and instead a different critic 51 , MEYER. from the upper classes is appointed for every meeting. The fee for the school-year has been changed to fifty cents. The officers are elected in the second week of April for the entire school-year, the Executive Committee nominating one man for each office. The Executive Committee for the past year was organized as follows: President, A. T. Meyer ; Vice-President, T. Holtorf ; Secretary, W. Meisen- heimer; Treasurer, B. Tepas. The other officers of the society were : Business Mana- ger, H. Heuser; Assistant Business Manager, T. Tiede- mann; Stage Managers, J. Bunge and C. Kluge; Librarian, E. Schmidt. The Division Leaders were: E. Lehmann and S. Al- brecht; H. Heuser and C. Eueggeberg; A. Franke and P. Pfitzer. The Debate Leaders were : E. Keller and C. Eueggeberg ; H. Gebhardt and E. Hohmann. The annual play, " Der Neffe als Onkel " by Friedr. Schiller, was a decided success, judging from the hearty laughter of the audience and their many complimentary remarks. The plot of this play is complicated, and were it not for the fact that many in the audience did not fully understand all the side-splitting situations, the actors would no doubt have been interrupted so much by laughter, that parts of the play could not have been understood at all. The play was staged to fit the time of the French Eevolut- ion and all the actors wore colonial wigs and rich costumes of the loudest colors, while the ladies in the play took up a good deal of the stage room with their great hoop skirts. From the financial point of view the play was the great- est success in the history of the college. Hard, consistent work and extensive advertising brought these results. The play was given at Glos Hall, Ein i hurst, in St. Peter ' s spac- ious hall at Chicago, and in the auditorium of the Lincoln High School at Dolton, 111. Had the clouds not shed all the tears they had on these three successive nights, the halls would have been crowded. As it was, the seats were nearly all occupied. The financial report of the two busi- ness managers, who deserve much praise, was as follows : Total Eeceipts $271.90 Total Expenditures $119.85 Total Gain $152.05 The Schiller Society has thus been enabled to have its most fiourishing year financially, the net profit of the play and the monbers ' hip fees amounting to almost $230.00. When the Annual goes to press we will probably have had our fourth debate for the school-year. The society would have had more debates but the writer could not re- sume his duties till late in February, having been absent from school for several weeks. The subject of the first debate, which was won by the affirmative side, consisting of P. Schmidt, W. Bartels, and F. Schroeder, Avas, " Ee- solved. That Capital Punishment should be abolished. " The negative side was ably defended by E. Bizer, P. Leh- mann and H. Kettelhut. The judges were, Professors G. Sorrick, P. Crusius, and C. G. Stanger. The second debate, " Eesolved, That the government should supi ort a graduated system of income tax, consti- tutionally granted, " was hotly contested, and the decision was in favor of the negative side, consisting of H. Heuser, T. Holtorf, and E. Hohmann. The affirmative side of the question was argued by P. Kehle, E. Lehmann, and G. Kleeb. The judges were Dir. D. Irion and Professors H. Arlt and C. Bauer. The suljject of the third deljate was " Eesolved, That the system of nomination by direct primaries is preferable to that of nomination by caucus and convention. " The affirmative side represented l)y F. Schaefer, P. Goebel, and (). Kocli lirought the second victory to the division led by E. Keller and C. Eueggeberg. The negative side con- sisting of J. Melchert, C. Kluge, and C. Klein put up a stul)l)orn fight and the decision was close. Dr. Wilkinson and Professors G. Sorrick and H. Brodt were the judges. One of the new features, introduced by the new con- stitution is the stereopticon lecture course. Thus far seven such lectures have l een held, and the members seem to take considerable interest in them. The purpose of this course is to give the upper class men more opportunity to gain experience in lecturing, beside benefitting the audience. The seven lectures or readings to date were : 1. " How the Chinese travel and worship, " lecture by T. Hauck. 2. " The Life of Abraham Lincoln, " reading by W. Bartels. 0. " Christmas, " lecture by H. Gebhardt. 4. " Yosemite Valley, " readings hy J. Krueger, E. Bizer, and W. Kettelliut. 5. " Yellowstone National Park, " readings by E. Keller, E. Lehmann, and J. Schlinkmann. 6. Lectures on " Milan " and " Naples, ' ' by Dir. D. Irion and A Pranl e. 7. " Eecent Excavations, " lecture by Dir. Irion. The retiring officers wish the officers for the next school- year the best of success and hope that the society will have the best year of its career. 3n HtBBton. Tänn ttmn.a (gpbljariit.

The Orpheus Male Choiir, the College Glee Club, enjoys the distinction of being the oldest organization, having celebrated its thirtieth anniversary this year. The purpose of the choir is to furnish music for relig- ious services in church and chapel, and for the annual plays, the programs of the Schiller Society, the Y. M. C. A. banquets, and special occasions. Being in existence for thirty yeai ' s, the Glee Club has a much larger library than most organizations of its kind, and new books of sacred and secular songs are added every year. The Glee Club consists of sixteen members and the Director. The members of every class are eligible to mem- bership and the places of the graduates are filled at the be- ginning of the school-year by singers recommended to the Glee Club by its director and president, after they have shown their vocal abilities. The Glee Club has. kept up its good record of the former years and has undertaken many hard classic songs. Schlink- mann deserves much praise for his excellent work as di- rector of the Glee Club, as do also the singers for their respective parts in the past school-year ' s attainments. It is organized as follows : Director, John Schlinkmann, President, A. T. Meter, Vice-President, F . Pfitzer, Treasurer, B. Tepas, The members are : I. Tenor II. Tenor I. Bass II. Bass B. Tepas W. Witt Edw. Sinning E. Locher F. SCHAEFER E. HOHMANN L. BRINK E. KeLLER I-I. Haas - S. Albrecpit F. Pfitzer 0. Egli E. BizER C. KoEiiLER A. T. Meyer G. Kleeb The graduates wish the other members a world of success. COLLEGE QUARTETTE The college quartette is of very recent date, although other quartettes, especially class quartettes, were in exis- tence a number of years ago. The present quartette was born and christened the latter part of 1911, when upon the wish of Eev. L. Goebel, of Chicago, that a student quartette sing in his church, one of its present members, A. T. Meyer, allied himself with F. Daries, an excellent second tenor. Gust. Brink, a first tenor, and F. Pfitzer, a second bass. The people liked the singing of the quartette so well that another invitation was immediately extended to them. Other invitations followed, and the quartette became a small permanent organization. The rule has been made and agreed to by all the members that this quartette should re- main strictly a college quartette, and that not more than two students of the same class shall ever become members of the quartette. The reason for this is self-evident, for it would hardly be right for four or even three inexperienced singers in quartette work appear before large audiences. Brink graduated in 1912 and gave way to B. Tepas before the year closed, so that the latter might be initiated be- fore the next schoolyear. The year 1912 — 1913 was a very successful one, and the quartette was often called upon to sing- in different Chicago and suburban churches, at funer- als, concerts, entertainments, organ-i-ecitals, bazaars etc., besides singing in the college chapel, at college plays, so- ciety programs, and special occasions. The quartette gave two complete concerts and sang a number of operettas. Daries graduated in 1913, and his place was filled by J. Schlinkmann. The quartette of the past schoolyear has kept up its former record, and we hope that it will do so in the future. Two of the members, Schlinkmann and Meyer, leave with this year ' s class. M. , CLASS MOTTO — THRC BY W " Those who have searched into human nature ol serve that nothing so much shows the nobleness of the soul, as that felicity consists in action. Every man has such an active principle in him, that he will find out something to employ himself upon in whatever place or state of life he is posted. " This active principle is the sacred, celestial life-essence breathed into us by the Almighty God. It is part of the primeval curse, but it has been softened into mercy and changed into a blessing. All the beauty, glory or dignity pertaining to it, depends upon the ends to which it is the means. The impulse to work, to create, to serve, is in us and demands expression. It lies with us how we will express it. We can show the nobleness of our soul, our relation to God, by directing our efforts into the chan- nel of selfless endeavor ; or we can join the ignobler class and throttle the God in us by expressing our impulses in satisfying degrading, selfish ambition. It is necessary that we serve in order to satisfy the act- ive principle within us. We have not a sinew whose law of strength is not action ; not a faculty of the body, mind, or soul whose law of improvement is not energy. If we use this action, this energy in serving selfish ambition, what do we gain, how do we grow? We strive to achieve, to surpass or subdae mankind and when we have attained what we set out to accomplish we are not contented, because ambition is a passion so powerful in the human breast that no matter how high we may reach we are never satisfied ; )UGH SERVICE I GROW BARTELS. we storm heaven itself in our folly. It is the nature of selfish ambition to make men liars and cheats who hide the truth in their hearts; to cut all friendships to the measure of self-interest and to put on a good face where there is no corresponding good will. It is the flame that is never quenched, it steals away the freshness of life, it shuts our souls to our you.th and grows more inflamed by in- dulgence. Do we grow by serving such a passion? Un- doubtedly. We become a power that must be reckoned with, just as Napoleon was a power or as Satan is a power. Cert- ainly we grow ; but what a price we pay for our growth ! From our high seat of power we look down upon the hate of those below us ; we look up at the heavens and are dis- contented because we cannot reach them ; we look at the beautiful pictures or hear sweet music and find that we have strangled the faculty of appreciation within us, all because we suffered ourselves to be carried away in the clutches of selfish ambition. Starting again with the same thought that the active principle within us must in some way be expressed, let us see how much we gain or how Ave grow by directing our efforts into the channel of selfless endeavor. Why is the soldier willing do die for his country ? Why did the apostles serve Christ even unto death? And why was Christ willing to suffer death upon the cross? Not for selfish ambition, but because theirs was a service in a great, elevating cause; theirs was a high ideal. They were striving to be of some benefit to others by raising tlie standard of service to a liigiier, nobler level. What do we gain, how do we grow in such a service Even, by an application of faithful service to our daily work, whatever it may be, we cannot help but grow. Every employee is expected to be punctual and pnnctnality is necessary if we wißh to be successful. When a secretary of Washington, excusing himself for being late, said that his watch was slow, the reply of Washington was, " You must get a new watch, or I must get a new seci ' etary. " I ' he em- ployee has no right to waste his employer ' s time, even if he does waste his own. Punctuality then, is one form of growth which we achieve by faithful service. Exactness and concentration are other forms. We read the biography of a successful birsiness man and we find that he was always punctual and exact and attended strictly to the business in hand. If we would be successful we also must develop these qualities thru faithful service. JSTot only in our business relation does faithful service develop in us the qualities necessary to success, but in our other relations, social and religious, selfless endeavor gives us that true happiness, perfect contentment, which can be realized only when self is forgotten and all our service is for others. Such service strikes a chord that extends thru the whole universe, touches all moral intelligence, visits every world, vibrates along its whole extent, and conveys its vibrations to the very bosom of God. It teaches us self-sacrifice, the highest rule of grace, the essence of true nol)ility. Every good unselfish service rendered blooms like a beautiful flower, shines forth like a great search-light lighting and cheering bewildered travelers on the road, and returns to bless and glorify the doer. From good service sown, sweet remembrances grow. Good thoughts are hut idle dreams unless they are put into action. Our worth, is determined by the good deeds we do rather than hy the fine emotions we feel. By con- cetrated unselfish effort to serve others we are gradually raising ourselves to that plane in which Clu-ist lived and served, we are following a high ideal, aspiring to some- thing celestial. O-ur views are broadened, so that we see the needs of others; self is forgotten and we minister unto our fellowman as Christ would have us do. Our lives and our souls are consecrated to Christ and His service, and the world beco mes a beautiful place in which to live. Thru such service we grow, not merely in worldly power but in heavenly grace, not only financially but in the riches of Christ ' s love. Who could enjoy life in a world where no sun shines, where there are no flowers, where no birds sing, where lieautiful scenery is unknown and all is darkness? Yet it would be endurable compared with a world where there is no kindness, no mother ' s love, no father ' s devotion, no self-sacrifice ; where all serve selfish ambition. How much more pleasant to forget self, to serve others and to en; oy the beautiful things God gives us ! For it Is no exaggera- tion to assert that two-thirds of all that makes life beauti- ful to live consists in unselfish service to others. A soldier, wounded in the mouth, refrrsed to drink water from a canteen when it was ofi ' ered him, because he did not want to spoil the water for his wounded comrades. His was a beautiful sacrifice, but we can be certain that it was not his first. Had he not lived a life of self-denial, sacrific- ing his own comfort for the comfort of others, he could not have made his last great sacrifice, Avhich crowned him in death. If we are ready to meet the big opportunity when it comes we must be prepared thru study and experience. If we would make a big sacrifice we must train ourselves by living a pure clean life of self-denial. The reward is our spiritual growth and life in eternity with Christ our Bedeemer. THE TURNING POINT BY THEODOK With the advent of the chiss of 1914 into the history of Elnihurst College, a new era was inaugurated. A change took place that made for a better Elmhnrst, a more effcient cnrricnlnm, and for conditions more compatible to the standard of nniversal brotherhood and good fellowship. These two events were merely coincident, not resultant one from the other. The advent of the class of 1914 was not the cause of better conditions, nor was the advent of the 1914 class the result of better conditions; therefore we must decline all honor involved. Our years at college are comprised of the end of the old regime, and the advent of the new. The old regime that was still tied to the past by inefficiency and harmful tradition— the new regime in touch with progress and ac- quainted with the demands of modern conditions. Retracing the footprints marked on the sands of time, we stand again upon the threshhold of our College life. The magician Memory has waved his wand over four years of progTess, and lo : they are no more. We stand upon the steps of the main building and look across the campus to the homes of the professors; the community of Wisdom, on Alexander Boidevard. A slop- ing grass-plot and restless cedar trees cover the intervening space, where a miniature baseball game is in progress. The modern fire-proof structure, dedicated Irion Hall in honor of Director Irion, D. D., now occupies the grassy slopes, and restless activity is ever present in its study and bed- ,E nOLTOUE. rooms, Its balls, chapel, library and gymnasium and in the home of Director Irion. Our first days at Elmhurst were full to overflowing with interest. The recording power of memory was taxed far beyond its limits, but stored within its confines are pictures that are ineffacable ; and memory itself will l3e no more when these impressions have disappeared. Knowledge always receives its due rewards, and we were agreeably surprised when apprised of the fact that the fourth class would be honored with our membership. There were many things that we escaped thru our good or ill fortune in thus passing the fifth class at a single bound. Public schools teach arithmetic, but the inevitable result of a glimpse into a certain one of Prof. Brodfs classes would be a marked downward revision of confidence either in efficiency of public school training, or the translucency of fifth class craniums. It is true that there may l e a superal)undance of a good thing— arithmetic has been blacklisted— ousted from the honor roll of the curriculum, and two other relics of public school days have been doomed to a similar fate. No doubt there are many who are very grateful for their knowledge of history, zoology, arithmetic, etc., obtained in Elmliurst ; luit tradition cannot shape the course of a college, nor can a modern college curriculum do graded schoolwork and keep up the ratio of progress. That the standard of knowledge to be acquired at Elm- 57 hurst is still far below standard is the opinion of many graduates, who have been handicapped by this fact. In days gone by the library has been blamed for a large per- centage of the deficiency, and it is a well-known fact that our collection of books of all kinds was conspicious chiefly on account of its lamentable limitations. Tavo years ago the Meusch Library, supported and conducted by the stud- ents, was transferred into more commodious quarters in Irion Hall, into the charge of the college, and incidentally into the able management of Professor Paul Crusius. The credit due Professor Crusius cannot be overestimated, for besides enlarging it to nearly three times its original size, his good judgement in the choice of books, and the ability and competency of the library sta ff under his direction and headed by John Schlinkmann, have made the Meusch Memorial Library a source of information and pleasurable entertainment many times more valuable than under the old order. The birthday of our Country ' s father was in olden days observed in a manner that could leave no doubt as to the impression it would leave upon even the most sieve- like memory. Shoeblacking, ice-cold water, barrel staves and legs of broken chairs were the delicate instruments used in recording the event. Tho the memory alone retains the impressions, they originated in divers places. This " dark institution of savagery and barbarism, " has been abolished along with much that savored of ignorance and cruelty. The freshmen of the present have no fear of the Imrrel staves or the icy ducking. We are glad for them — for the majority — that is, (we still have a very vivid re- collection of the 22nd of February, 1911) but there are those who seem to be deficient in important parts of be- havior and mannerisms, and for these, a return to the old custom, would be both instructive and healthful. In days of old, to be appointed House Senior was to be intrusted with important duties. Halls and recitation rooms had to be swept, the floors scrubbed, the wash rooms kept in order; frequently a lagging famulus had to Ix- dis- ciplined; in fact, the House Senior was lord over a minia- ture empire. An empire whose army fought battles with dirt ancl uncleanliness, and had both hands full keeping things running smoothly. Today the House Senior finds his field of activity greatly reduced. The janitor now leads the assaults against the enemy, and very efficiently at that ; consequently the empire is overrun with unemployed. A King without a throne and subjects without occupations ! But the life of the c ollege runs smoother under the new order than ever before. Those who cannot refrain from being usefidly occupied, now console themselves by stalk- ing some harmless Greek or Latin verb thru dozens of lexi- cons, and after worrying it to distraction, pounce upon it in high glee within its very lair. Our dining room has also seen changes within the past four years. A casual observer would have great difficulty in finding any difference between those who were fed upon the food that mother makes, and those who are fed upon the everyday college fare. With the advent of the prosperity to the country at large came the advent of the new rulers of the dining hall at Elmliurst — Mr. Gernand and wife — and there are few students at Elmliurst who lose weight during their absence from home. Elmhurst is growing as a modern college should grow, and we deem it a great privilege that our days at college encompass the turning point — the change from the old stand-still to the new and progressive order of things. A DAY AT ELMHURST BY EEINPIAKT LEHMANN. It is half past five in the morning. Silence reigns in the buildings of Elmhnrst College. Here and there a shrill alarm clock breaks the stillness to awaken some con- scientious student, whom the worries over an examination spur on to early morning study; otherwise everything is steeped in dead slumber. In the days of yore, this was the time for the clamorous handbell to make its rounds thru the bedrooms, rudely rousing the sleepers from their dreams. Now there is no such inconvenience. We have progressed; an electric gong has taken the place of the bell. And in accordance with modern progress, the hour of rising has been set a half hour later. Accordingly, at six o clock the restless gong rings the hour of rising, at least it should ring. That it really does ring, the writer cannot from experience assert. However this may be, the fact remains that very few respond to its call, or even hear it. A quarter of an hour later, the senior ' s assistant, the " Untersenior, ' " makes a tour thru the sleeping apartments ; and he, at least, is heard by the slumberers, even if his efforts to get them out of bed are as a rule futile. At half past six the pesky senior comes in person to assert his authority. Sometimes with gentle, sometimes with forceful means, he tries to persuade the in- dolent sleepers that it is time to get up; but even these methods of coercion are futile in the case of some. The only infallible means is the light step and the authoritative 59 voice of the Director. When these are heard, every one knows and feels it is really time to say farewell to slumber- land. Now everything is in commotion and bustle ; every one is washing the sleep from his eyes and preparing himself, if not for a few moments of study, for breakfast. Soon the gong, assisted by the old dinner bell, announces the morning meal, and a stream of humanity pours out of the various buildings into the dining hall to do full justice to tlie food proffered there. Breakfast is followed by a short intermission, which is to be used primarily for making beds. This operation, however, is done in a twinkling, and we are free to review our lessons or take a stroll. The end of the intermission is proclaimed by the tower bell, which invites us to the morning chapel service. A hundred and fifty youths gather and from an equal number of lusty throats the choral peals forth in mighty unison. Hardly has the song died away, when already the incessant gong impatiently calls us to the recitation rooms, where we are to spend from three to five periods of forty-five min- utes, extending from 8 :00 to 12 :05 o ' clock. Happy is the class which has some of these periods free; but gloomy, on the other hand is the one to whose lot fall five continu- ous recitations. Sometimes swiftly, sometimes slowly, the minutes and hours pass, in due proportion to the thoroness with which the lessons have been prepared. As the noon hour approaches the steady grind has its effect upon the spirits of the students. Even the seconds roll by ever so slowly and inattention l)ec()mes prevalent. What a flash of joy lights up their features when the tower l)ell releases them from their agony and suimnons them to the dining hall ! Out of the classrooms they rush and virtually storm the dining hall. In a solid, unresistable column, they pour in, and in twenty minutes the tables have been coiupletely raided. As is evidenced by the joviality and other signs of contentment, this is the happiest time of the day, ex- cepting perhaps the recreation time. At the close of the meal, the house-senior rises to make the announcements for the day. Then we are dismissed from the dining hall row by row according to tables. " But what is that boisterous crowd doing in tlie hallway of Ii ' ion Hall the visitor Avill ask. It is the noi s y group of expectant youths waiting for the clerk to bring the mail from the Directors office. Here he comes! The noise is gradually subdued, and the names are called off as the let- ters and cards are distributed, bringing gladness to the fortunate recipients, disappointment to those whose friends did not write. After this scene of gladness and woe, we disperse in all directions, to the village, to the playgrounds or perhaps even to our study-rooms; it is the period of general activities and carefree leisure. At 1:10 the recitations are resumed and continue until 4:35. As a rule, however, no class has ]uore than three of these afternoon hours, usually less and sometimes none. When the last recitation of the day is passed, out we fly like birds liberated from a cage. With a hip, hip, hurrah " ! we hurry out upon the baseball diamond, the football field. the tennis courts, the green country, or down into the gym- nasium. The first and second teams line up against each other to play whatever sport is in season, and thus gain the skill and teamwork for which Elmhurst is famous. Tired from exertion, but nevertlieless happy and con- tented, we heed the call to supper, hungry as wolves. With keen appetite the evening repast is attacked and done away with. As at every meal, we are seated eight at a table, a senior at the head. One of the under-classmen cuts the Ijread, another one gets the water or anything needed from the kitchen ; we are our own waiters. After supper, there remains a half hour of free time dui ' ing which many are seen taking a stroll to town, often stopping at the corner grocery store to satisfy the craving for sweets. At seven, the never tiring gong i-eminds us that one of the requisites of the college life is study. How cruel this study-time often is, when it breaks up a circle of chums who are discussing latest events in the Ijaseball world, or telling hyperbolical stories, or knocking things in general ! But alas ! Fate wills it as our duty and duty is relentless. From seven to half past nine, with an intermission of ten minutes, you will find us at our desks, diligently perusing our lessons. The strain of mental effort is relaxed when the now welcome gong rings for chapel. Again the hearty choral is heard, penetratino- the darkness as a Ijidding of " Good Fight. " During the fifteen minutes from chapel to bed-time, a large number is in the gymnasium doing stunts on the apparatus, while the rest prepare themselves for retiring. The buildings are filled with hubbub, Avhich gradually de- creases. One after another the students go to bed; one after another the lights are turned off ' until silence again reigns in darkness.

ELMHURST, ILL., JUNE 15, 1950 Price $1.00 200 PEOPLE KILLED IN N. Y. C. TUBE " 20th Century Bullet " A frightful accident occur- red at 3:45 this afternoon in the N. Y. C. Tube, when the " 20th Century Bullet " crashed into the rear of a freight train near Toledo. For some unknown reason the freight train had become stalled. With lightning speed the limited approached. The automatic danger brakes failed to work. Hardly had the engineer of the passenger seen the tail light of the freight, before the collision took place. So great was the shock that both the trains were reduced to splint- ers of steel. Not a single passenger escaped death, the terribly mangled bodies being mixed with the tangled wreck- age. No accurate estimate of the number killed can be made. Owing to the yacuunj Crashes into Freight in the subway and the wedged condition of the wreckage, the task of clearing the track is very difficult. The ill-fated passenger was the fastest train operating be- tween Chicago and New York thru the recently constructed vacuum tube, its scheduled time being 2 hrs. 10 m. 11 sec. It was of the best steel construction thruout, air-tight when closed so as not to lose into the vacuum of the tube any of the oxygen, which was stored in pressure tanks. The current was fed direct from the earth; and the lack of air resistance made the high speed possible. A committee has been ap- pointed by the Inter-State Commerce Commission to in- vestigate the causes of the wreck and try to place the re- sponsibility. 843 GRADUATE AT U. TODAY The largest class in the his- tory of Elmhurst University will complete its course with its graduation this evening. At the close of the exercises 517 young men and 316 young women will receive their dip- lomas and degrees in the new chapel and auditorium capa- ble of seating 4,000 people. The features arranged for the program are: the Class Song, written and composed by Miss Josephine Franke; the girl ' s quartette, consisting of the Misses Alice Gebhardt, Joan Holtorf, Mabel Bartels, and Hannah McQueen; the essays by Paul Schoppe, Jr., and Miss Geraldine Schmidt; the orchestra conducted by J. Schlinkmann, Jr., and the commencement oration by the Honorable Robt. Keller, D. D. The limited number of seats has been assigned to the friends of the graduates. GREAT CROWD SEES THRILLING RESCUE Babel Skyscraper Damaged by Fire Fire broke out this after- noon in the seventieth story of the fireproof Babel sky- scraper, owned by P. Meisen- heimer. The aero-chemicals arrived in ten seconds after the alarm was rung in, but the fire, feeding on the paint stored on the floor, was too hot for them to approach near enough for efficient work.

MADAM PRESIDENT HAUCK FORCES NEW TARIFF LAW THRU The Women ' s Party today fulfilled the first of its pledges when the Mary Ann Tariff Bill was passed in the Senate by a vote of fifty-two to forty. The Senators of the Anti- Woman ' s Party all voted a- gainst the bill, but were de- SCIENCE and I Prof. E. Z. Going has is- sued a statement that he has invented some powders, which will greatly facilitate the ac- quiring of geometrical knowl- edge. He claims that he has a specific powder for each Geometry proposition; all the student has to do is to take the powder before going to recitation and he will know his lesson perfectly, provided he has taken the right pow- der. There is one drawback, however: the powders are very expensive, so that only the rich can buy them. The poor fellow will have to con- tinue in the old tedious way. Prof. Seybold has at last exchanged messages with Mars. By means of an im- mense search-light, several ac- res in extent, which throws its beams in a shaft of light five feet in diameter, he has set up communication with NVENTION the planet and finds that Mars is an exact duplicate of the earth, only more developed. The astronomer whose atten- tion Prof. Seybold first at- tracted proved to be a scien- tist by the name of Nelson, who knew the Morse Code so well, that no difficulty was en- countered in understanding each other ' s message. The problem of heating has now been solved forever. The noted chemist, F. Fuehring, has discovered a cheap pro- cess for separating water into its components of hydrogen and oxygen. He has the pat- ent on a stove, which breaks up the water, feeds the two gases to the burners, and col- lects the water formed by the combination of the two during combustion. The only fuel necessary is a new metal compound which separates the gases, of which water is composed. WANT ADS WANTED — A housekeeper. Must be young and pretty, and of amiable disposition.

Once upon a, time, not very long ago, tliere lay a little )30ol of water in a large forest ; the rain liad fallen and run down into a small hollow and stopjoed there. The water, too, had dripped from off the trees, making the ]30ol still deeper, and even the dews of the still summer night had added their tiny supplies. At first this little pool showed a clear face, rippled and smiling, when the winds whispered and the sun showed over it ; but after a while dead leaves and stray twigs and mottled dust gathered in its clear depths, and it was no longer bright and beautiful, but dark and mudd} ' , for the water no longer rippled and smiled, but stood still and stagnant. There was no cur- rent in the pool, no running life and motion; so the poor little pool, instead of being a source of good to everything around it, became instead a source of danger, with its green, rank, evil-smelling water. After a while, when the summer sun shone hot and dry, the water in the pool became less and less, and the small creatures who lived there began to fear that unless they made some preparation for themselves they would very soon be left upon the dry, cracked bottom of the pool. So, before all the water was gone, these creatures began to burrow down into the soft mud. Not very far underground chanced to be a little spring of water, but no one even knew it was there; but in bu.rrowing down and scooping out a hole for itself an ambitious frog broke thru the crust of the earth which covered the spring, and all of a sudden its clear, running waters bubbled in thru the open- ing, soon filling the pool quite full again with fresh, sweet water. Not only did it fill the pool, but sent it brim- ming and running over, trickling and murmuring down the valley, working out a course for itself as it went, and creating life and beauty wherever it flowed. Soon lovely ferns and sweet-smelling flowers grew up all about the- pool, for it had l ecome alive, its waters were no longer putrid and stagnant, but wholesome and refreshing, and the birds and beasts of the forest stooped over it to quench their thirst, raising their heads in mute thanksgiving to the All-Good, who had led them to the " still waters. " Now, let us learn a lesson f rom the pool and the brook. Our hearts may be as dead, stagnant pools of water, if there is nothing but selfish desire in them, no love for others, only self-seeking, self-centered vanity. But to ask God the Good, to let His spirit of Love break thru our outer crusts of self, is like letting the spring at the bottom of the pool well up within us. It was by chance that the frog uncovered the hidden spring and released the life- giving water. Even so in our lives does chance all too often play the most important part. The crust of self must not be too thick, else there can be no flowing stream of love and kindness radiating from us to others. We must be prepared to let God open the secret spring of Love within us, for thus alone can we know God and sing and make melody unto Him. The response we get is like the rippling, murmuring waters of the little brook — our happiness and God-given goodness will bubble over and help other people ; for to be truly good we must be the inlet and the outlet of God ' s love. Once that love fills our hearts it will over- fiow like the little pool, bringing joy aiad blessings to who- soever it meets on its way along the valley. Our lives are our own to make of them what we will. Are we going to have them dead, stagnant pools, or clear streams of run- ning water ? WISE AND OTHERWISE BY A. T.

THE PROPHECY FULFILLED BY FEED FUEHRING. Sylvia gazed out over tlie water. It was a l)eautifiil ' sight — tlie blue Mediterranean reflecting the gorgeous Ital- ian sunset. But the sunset was alwa.ys gorgeous and the Mediterranean was always blue. To Sylvia it seemed like a great, restless,, living thing searching for something it could not find. Always searching for something it could not find. Always searching, splashing on and on — some- times, angered with itself, it became turl ulent and rushed along like a great, mad thing, and then it would grow calm and peaceful as if reconciled to the fact that it could never find what it searched for. " Poor thing! " she would murmur, " You ' ll never find it ! STever — never — never ! " And the sea would sigh and answer back, " IST ever — never — never ! " ' To-day as she stood there she shook her head sadly, ■ " You are like myself, restless and eager for the to-morrow, and to-morrow comes and never brings what we wish for ! But you are peaceful at times and I am never so ! I am always restless, longing for something — I know not what ! " and Sylvia, turning, took the path back to the hotel. This was Sylvia Camden! This sad girl was the one whom all Europe was hailing as the greatest American singer. Her girlish beauty and lovely voice had caused many a heartache. She had gained fame, but she did not care for it; she was weary of seeing her name in startling headlines in all the leading newspapers of Europe; it was such a bore to have camera fiends waiting at the hotel door ; the perfume of the bouquets from her many admirers had grown sicken- ing to her, and she cast aside the cards of the adoring nobility. She hated it all ! She had that same desire that the sea had — that irresistable longing for something which she never could define. To-night was her last musicale in Europe. She would go back to America as soon as possible. Back to her native land where she would be happy ; l ack where she would un- derstand people and people would understand her. There in that land of the free there were no Italian nobles, no monocled Englishmen, no German Ijarons, no monsieurs, no signors, no crowned heads to sing before. So it was that she reached her apartments with a hap- pier heart. She looked over her program for the night ' s performance, and then took from a hox in which she kept her keepsakes, a song that she had sung on the night of ber graduation from the high school, Imck in the states. As she turned the pages, there fell from between them a printed page. Upon reading it she uttered a little ex- clamation of delight. Her maid looked up quizzically from her serving. " Oh, Marie ! " cried Sylvia, eagerly. " Here ' s our class phophecy. Just thmk, this was written eight years ago, when I graduated from the high school. Listen ! " and curling up in ' the silk cushions, Sjdvia read the proph- ecy, explaining it all, descril ing the ones named in it. and recalling incidents of her Senior year. " And yours ? What was your fate to be ? " queried the little maid. " Mine? " Sulvia blushed. " Here was the prophecy made for me, ' I see Sylvia Camden winning fame as a singer in a distant land and Dale London wedding her in after years. ' Biit it never came true, Marie. Fate inter- vened, " Sylvia laughingly finished. But the little maid knew that there was a sigh and a tear in the laugh. " And yon have not seen him since? " asked the little maid. Sylvia did not answer. She was gazing out over the blue sea, but she did not see the sunset or the clouds. She was a " sweet girl graduate " again, and once more she was listening to Dale London delivering his valedictory. And once again she heard the manly young fellow saying to her, " Well fulfill the prophecy some day, Sylvia, won ' t we ? " Then came his departure for college and she came to Berlin to study singing. They had quarreled in their let- ters and had dropped the correspondence. But Marie interrupted her reverie. " Your song, Miss Sylvia? " " Oh, I had almost forgotten. Listen and I ' ll sing it for you. It ' s very simple, but it ' s so vastly different from what I have been singing and I thought it would be a change ! " n i • Sylvia crossed over to the piano in the little sitting room and struck a few deep, rich chords and then in her full, sweet soprano sang " My Love of Long Ago. " It was a pretty thing — sweet in its simplicity and its melody was charming. Marie stood enraptured. To Marie ' s sentimental little heart it seemed as if this song had been written expressly for Sylvia, that Sylvia realized it and that it was this that caused her to sing it so earnestly. " It ' s heavenly! " exclaimed Marie, as the sweet singer arose. " They will go wild over you ! " " You little flatterer, " laughed Sylvia. " But come, there ' s the dinner gong! " The audience that night was, as usual, a large one, for everyone was clamoring to hear Sylvia Camden and this was to be her last appearance in Europe. As she came upon the stage the usual buzz of admiration circled thru the audience. Sylvia was dazzlingly beautiful to-night— exasperatingly attractive. She seemed like a goddess of old and tlie audience were her worshippers. In her last number she sang before the most attentive and appreciative audience in Italy. It was her school song, " My Love of Long Ago. " Her very heart and soul seemed to send out the last word : " Oh, where art thou to-night, my love? My love of long ago. " The sweet, girlish songster left the stage. For a mo- ment the audience was silent in reverent awe, and then such a storm of applause arose as had never beeen heard in the big theater before. Sylvia, with flushed and pleased face, hurried back to her dressing room. In a few minutes a huge box of roses appeared. Reading the card Sylvia gasped. " Marie ! " she cried. " What can It mean? It reads, ' From Your Love of Long Ago. ' I wonder — " ' " Could it be — " stammered Marie. " Nonsense! Let us go back to the hotel. Come ! " When they reached the hotel a page stepped forward. " Gentleman in the east parlor wishes to see Miss Camden. " Surprised, Sylvia crossed over to the east parlor. AVho could it be ? She pushed aside the heavy portiere and en- tered. A tall, broad-shouldered fellow met her gaze. He arose and came forward. " I was in Venice, Sylvia, and heard that you were here. " " Dale London ! " cried Sylvia. Needless to say, the prophecy did come true. 70 1 1 fix ' t- yoxx tried oxxir Trade Mark Registered U. S. Pat. Office FOR SALE AT ALL UP=TO=DATE ST0RE5 Hsk foe tbcm! BLANKE WENNEKER CANDY CO. ST.
