Rah Rah Rah! 1912! 1912! 1912 Flower-Daffodil. . . . .Miss Dwight . .Maude Barnes .. ...Flora Peck .Hclen Manning Tiger Waverly, N. Y. "A contented spirit is the sweetness of existence." Far be it from me to pick flaws in President Barnes: she is so cheerful that you would be forced to overlook them if there were any there. But that's just it. She is so good natured that she is-why she is positively aggravating-sometimes. Yet who cares for that? Fresh- men adore her. Sophs know that they will meet with a good square deal where class scraps are concerned. Juniors look to her with implicit trust when storm-tossed between the Scylla and Charybdis of Junior Prom and the Junior-Senior sleighride. Seniors envy her the smiling and peace- ful serenity with which she meets the manifold trials and tribulations of an upper classman's life. Maude loves four things-to eat, basket ball, science labs, and-Mary Louise. Notice, I say "loves"7 the lesser degrees of her affection are all comprehensive and unlimited. She is quite sus- ceptible to Crushesl for further information, consult her roommate or other sufferers. On the whole, Maud is a "brick," 23 MARY BAXTER Bartlesville, Oklahoma. "She is most fair and thereunto "Her life doth rightly harmonize." Sprightly lVlolly! How could 1912 - exist without her? Yet this mischiev- ous maiden from 'way 'way out West where the Indians grow is not wholly frivolous, you have but to take note of that unruffled brow, those clear blue eyes, and that attitude of calm repose at exam time, to remark with deep -conviction-"Oh this learning. What a thing it is!" Think, too, of the courage, the skill, and the diplo- macy needed to suppress the Tiger's - fierce growls throughout the strenuous period of Sophomorehood! Mollie has a fetching gri- l mean smile: you've noticed it, haven't you? . Wonder what makes it particularly conspicuous on alternate Saturday nights? lt's apt to be conspicuous by its absence when a certain letter fails to appear, or when, for some mysterious reason, a walk along Church Street about five o'clock in the afternoon proves disappointing. "Now - 1 said-." But never mind, Nlolly is a mighty good sort after all. KATHERINE BLOOMER K Elmira, N. Y. "She smiled for the sake of smiling "And laughed for no reason but fun." Here's our "friend and fellow citi- zen" Bloomer! What would a chemis- try "Lab" be without Katherine! No one else can pronounce a precipitate "gorgeous" with equal confidence and zest. Her contagious laughter has frequently cleared the atmosphere in that realm of the under world. Indeed to use her own words she is always "divinely happy," so much so in fact that no matter how blue or discour- aged we may be, her irrepressible good humor is sure to cheer us-and such a repertoire ,of clever, ludicrous ex- pressions as she possesses! We laugh and feel that after all the world is a i joyous place. l 26 GERTRUDE CASELEY Taunton, Mass. "A contented spirit is the sweetness of existence." Gertrude was enough impressed with the fame of Elmira to travel from the far borders of Massachusetts to ,partake of its, benefits. She came laden with the lore of many Latin books of which the less-favored mem- bers of her class had scarcely heard, and with a refreshing contempt for letting anything worry or hurry her, even German essays, albeit when they were done they dazzled our eyes with mystical German' script. The second year she returned with another of the flock, that together they might bring joy to Dr. Hamilton's heart, for, as we have heard, "the great advantage of the cutting system is to insure the presence later on," and Gertrude never uses the last cut. 4 FLORA J. CORNISH . Elmira, N. Y. "She is a maid of artless grace "Gentle in form and fair' of face." In Flora we find a devotee of Epicu- rus-"happy and blith, winsome and gay, dancing in Eden the live long day." Even at home she sings at her work, and never forgets to fondle her pretty little kittens, which always look like soft round balls of fur. Undoubt- . edly she cultivated her gentle affec- tion for animals during her early life in the west, for the stories of those days that she tells us around the fire- place, by the dim light of the embers, glow with the happiness of childhood romps. As an actress she is clever ' indeed, and should the glare of the footlights ever claim her, unbounded success would surely crown her i career. 2 MARIE K. EIFFERT Elmira Heights, N- Y- "Just dress enough to be tasteful "Just merry enough to be gay." The face before you is one capable of a great variety of expressions, as you may have inferred from the large, dark eyes. Nor is its, possessor un- skilled in its control. She can spread a look of perfect happiness and con- tentment over her features, and should something arouse her anger, she can "look daggers" in an instant. lt is next to impossible. to be angry with Marie, for when you feel just like shaking her, she will provoke a laugh from you by her nonsensical- "do you know, that would make me so mad." When classes are over, she must rush off, either to keep an ap- pointment with her "modiste" or to , hurry home to dress for a dinner or theatre party in the evening. And yet she does credit to her,studies, for she has trained herself to make the best of a short time. ANNA GOETZ Elmira, N. Y. "Worth is by worth in every rank admired." This energetic and business-like little lady of ours always "goetz" there, you may be sure of that. When we want anything done correctly, yet with neatness and despatch, Anna is one upon whom we may rely: and her career in afliairs of the heart has met with "l-lowelling" success. Her record clearly shows that ,she is always alert to seize and make the best of every opportunity, and though an all-around good student, her "specialty" is quite apparent to all so that we grant her a most conspic- uous place in the German constella- tion. 28 MARGARET GRAFFT Waverly N Y "Exceedingly wise, fair spok nd persuading" As the picture of breaking sea-waves lin Tennyson, so is Margaret in EImira's halls, the embodiment of fenergy. We see her flying from room 'to room, upstairs and down, with firm and elastic tread, and we know not in what direction the voice of duty calls, whether it is to the struggle with Argumentation, to Sibylline affairs, or to superintend a spread, but that it iis the voice of duty we have no doubt. But there is no one else who, like Margaret, never falters at the post, who can make the most doubtful enter- prise go through, can turn her hand ito any task, from the humblest to the most difficult, and withal, who has a spirit that never faileth the needy friend. BLANCHE M GUY Newburgh, N. Y. " e flcwcr of meekness on a stem of grace." A spirit rare, of gentleness and peace, Yet bubbling o'er with secret merri- ment, Unselfish, thoughtful, kind, and full of fun, A girl, to know whom, captivates one's love As some shy pansy hidden in the grass . Attr-acts the sunbeams. 29 LUCY M. HALL Elmira, N. Y. "Sweet promptings unto kindest deeds "Were in her very look." Lucy stars in basket ball and plays, and consequently is always "busy" after recitation hours, to all the world, except one favored mortal, who tries to show her appreciation of the honor by her constant attendance-even dur- ing the luncheon hours. Although Lucy's personal loveliness is sufficient to make her a favorite wherever she goes, yet her recent discovery of a "perfectly grand" liquid face- powder has tended to make her more popular than ever. Nor has all this flattering attention made the charming May queen vain of her celebrity, for her character is as attractive as her face. MARY R. HOWELL "ln thy heart the "On thy lips the We are not sure whether this Mary has a little lamb, but we have the best authority for asserting that she is as gentle as the nicest little lamb that ever lived. As in the case of most deep, soulful characters, so in hers, we must "grow" into her friendships: and when the roots are once entwinecl, they can be neither unravelled nor cut. One of the strongest roots-yet not the oldest-we have been able to trace to Cornell, whither a certain young and dashing western university man decided to betake himself, so that he can more easily guard this promising sprout. 30 - Horseheads, N Y dew of youth smile of truth." MARY JOHNSON "And rather spry withal her Tiny little lVlary, but oh so ener- getic! When we see Mary coming we all step aside for how she does walk. She's always in a hurry and she gets somewhere in her haste, too. Her mind is just as active and quick as her body and behind her happy smile her loving disposition shines. She has two great faults, however. One is that she is very noisy and the other is that she has a strong inclin- ation toward singing. Morning, noon and night that song bursts forth in spasmodic floods of melody. Only those who live near her know its charms. But somehow she 'feels sen- sitive about being complimented on this gift, so be careful how you ap- proach her regarding the matter. ELSIE KLEITZ "Stuff of the sort st Waverly, N. Y ature is so very small." Elmira, N. Y of material . N "Poets and painters are made." This is a maiden of dignity and grace, Minerva-like in her bearing and reflective mien, and like lvlinerva, too, in the intellect concealed beneath it. Hers is a hand which can equally well bring forth bewitching programs for the secret festivities of Zeta Rho, ravish our ears through the strains of the College Orchestra, or, we are told, wield the humble needle with results no less artistic. The fact that she terrifies under-classmen would bring nothing' but dismay to her heart, yet who of us but must stand a little in awe of one who so combines the artist with the scholar as to resort to the spell of music to draw out her thoughts on the problems of Analy- tics? 31 MAY KLEITZ Elmira, N. Y. "Life hath no dim and lowly spot ' "That doth not in her sunshine share." E-ri-isa. L'aCREQUE All hail to the gift of the cheerful spirit! It is found nowhere if not here. We may find lVlay taking up her abode every mains flying trips home, or flying out again with several guests whom she has picked up on the way. As to her enthusi- asm, one has only to glimpse at her Ornithologicaicareer to be fully con- vinced, and ever after to regard with respect the sleepless nights, the peril- ous journeys, and the hours of patient observation spent in its service. in the library till six o'clock night, but her disposition re- as unblighted as when she is in from one of her numerous Elmira, N. Y. "Of her bright face one glance will trace "A picture on the brain." Command her to speak and she will enchant thine ear with her wisdom. Her brain is a storehouse of knowl- edge. A happy disposition goes with it also. Happiness is catching when Ethel is around. She is simply bubbl- ing over with Iife, laughter, wit and fun. One serious difficulty she has, however. She cannot learn to "laugh gracefully." "It's inside and it's got to come out,"-she says. Oh she makes such a good looking man in plays! And- she could simply die dancing. 32 ERNIA LOUGHLEN , Andover, N, Y, "No star shines brighter than the queenly woman." Oh dignity thy name is Erma! Words and space fail when it comes to the thought of enumerating her good qualities. Sufficient it is to say, "Would that we all were like her!" Some faults, however, Erma has, but these not grievous. She takes special delight in appropriating the wardrobe of her friends on special occasions. lt is said that she is very slow when getting ready to go anywhere. There is always one little spot on her nose that is shiny and that has to be remedied. Last but not least, she dearly loves to draw from that magic box labeled "Prom Nlen We Have Never Seen." HELEN NIANNING Elmira, N. Y. "We grant although she has much wit "She's very shy of using it." Such neatness and precision! Dust and dirt simply fly in despair at Helen's approach. Books, clothes, hair -everything that belongs to her is just as it should be. Even her mind seems to follow this same general plan. Facts and ideas arrange them- selves in such a systematic and logi- cal order that they can be laid hold of at a moment's notice. Indeed Helen is a storehouse of knowledge for the rest' of us. But why, oh why, such lack of self-confidence-according to her own idea, she never has her lesson, doesn't dare go to clas-s, is simply scared to death, etc.-yet was Helen ever known to fail in a recita- tion? 533 MARY McCABE f Campbell, N. Y. "Wh:-:nce is thy learning? Hath thy toil "O'er books consumed the midnight oil?" Mary has wrinkles in her forehead that are the signs of deep thinking. We know that they bear results from the themes we have heard in English class, and from the logic with which she upholds her statements in Argu- mentation. Let us advise anyone, too, who desires to converse with her, that it is no idle pastime, but a matter requiring words of both depth and length. Of hidden secrets, crushes, or other eccentricities, we shall have to infer that Mary has none, for even her dearest friends, when questioned about such matters, shake their heads and say, "Just give me time, l shall have to think." And the thoughts never come. ELSIE M. MEAD i Halls Corners, N. Y. "'And still the wonder grew and grew "That one small head could carry all she knew." We have here a most renowned yet truly modest young woman. Her brilliant scholarship is becoming pro- verbial, no branch of knowledge is there in pursuing which she does not shine with intellectual splendor. Yet even this paragon of wisdom is not without some human frailtiesg to prove this, rush toward her with out-pointed finger and carefully note the results. She is quiet but full of fun, and by no means a grind either, as her record in basket ball and various other activities of college life will tell you. '!She does write the most fetching stories, too, full of keen observation and quaint humor. We are led to believe that she is rather 1 fond of having her picture taken, but , her face shows her thoughtfulness for numerous little deeds of kindness toward others, and that she is a genu- ine and most lovable college girl. I 34 ETHEL MERCHANT 1 Dorranceton, Pa. "Angels must paint to be as fair as you." Where did all those roses come from, Ethel? Now it surely isn't fair to have more than one man-at a time. But half a dozen aren't too many for her, and then she would like "lVloore." Her face and manner causes them all to pause, think and admire. Ethel's crowning virtue is her lovable disposition and happy spirit. Her eyes tell that sheis kind and affectionate and her voice charms us all. l ELSIE MORRELL Mamaroneck, N. Y. "A daughter of the gods, divinely tall." lf you want to know anything about "Else" just ask some member of the Class of 1913. As a "squelcher" of Freshmen she has an established repu- tation. But she has a reputation among the good class of 1912 as well. Who is always "there" when the college yell is to be started and who yells the loudest? Who is the leader in the spirit at basket ball games? Who knows just how to take her stand with good opinions and stick to them? Who, when clad in cap and gown, looks down with serene dignity at "those under-classimenu? Who is just as mad as she can be one minute and sweet and lovable the next. And- who knows all about the "Boys in the Navy." Why, don't you know? Elsie, of course. ' 'W' 35 WINIFRED NICHOLSON Elmira Heights, N. Y. "Oh the dimples in her cheek "That play with the blushes at hide-and-seek!" What winsome maiden have we here?-Winifred, to be sure! She flashes her dimples and captures us with her smile. Few cares or anxie- ties seem to cross the smooth horizon of her joyful happy life, still the endeavor she bestows upon basket ball is most earnest and enthusiastic. Therefore it is not surprising that Winifred is a decided star and one who has many a time helped us on to victory-yes-and a musician, too. ln fact her musical tendencies are displayed not only in connection with the College orchestra but also in her regard for a certain popular musician and composer fX?j. EVA PEAVRT ' coming, N. Y. "Just saucy enough to be witty "Just dainty enough to be neat." This describes little Eva to per- i fection, especially the "saucy" and "witty" part. Many of us have, much to our sorrow, discovered something of the mischievous element in Eva. But nevertheless she can be serious when lessons are at hand, and as she discourses in class we wonder "how one small head contains all that she knows." In fact she translates Greek as successfully as she frightens her classmates fat the opportune momentj with flunk notes or a silenc- ing "sh." Even "Arg" finds "Miss Pert" among its ranks. She never seems to shrink from the hardest of subjects-or can it be possible that her diminutive size is the'result of shrinkage? However that may be she is a brave little warrior conquer- ing aIl'difficuIties with marvelous des- patch. "Oh for the love of Louie!" 36 i FLORA PECK Bath N Y "A merry heart maketh a cheery countenance" Happiness surely ,has H Charm! When we see Flora's eyes twinkle and the corners of her mouth twitch we know she has something on her mind. She always has a "peck" of trouble but what does that matter? Life's too short to fret and worry. Flora does not seem exactly suited, with her work here so she will probably take up graduate work in medicine some- where when she has finished. 'DOROTHY PICKERING E'm"'af N Y "Speech and gesture, form and face "Showed she was of gentle rac ' Dorothy seems almost indescribable for she is an unusual composite of sweet gentleness and frolicsome gaiety. Although she rants about no hobbies and always appears calm and self-possessed, still she lacks neither enthusiasm nor progressive- ness. Whether it is a play, dance or' lesson, she is a most attractive partici- pant. Speaking about plays we remem- berthat Dorothy has several times assumed a man's role with such skill as to win the adulation of a whole train of feminine admirers. As for dancing she can easily outdistance the rest of us. Dorothy never seems to be in a hurry and always has time for a merry greeting or quiet chat. 37 And whatever sky's' above me, H res a heart for any fate. YULAN PRITCHARD Elmira Heights, N.'Y. H Yulan has two bright browns eyes that betoken a great degree of self- reliant energy and capable independL ence. Her-class work is never allowed to disturb the unclouded depths of her genial personality but she gets along famously, so what more could one desire. She is always ready for a good time and thoroughly enjoys her- self when the least opportunity for doing so -'-presents itself to her mirth loving soul. When Yulan is there and is there to stay Blue funks take wings and fly away. RUTH D PUTNAM YEImira, N. Y. 'Her look was like the morning's eye, Her air like n ture's vernal smile." Behold our star in 'Nlathl' She has distinguished herself so markedly this semester that the instructor has deemed her worthy of the high office of "tutor." Yet in spite of this great honor, Ruth cannot feel herself flat- tered. And that you may not err in youriestirnate of her, we would add that "math" does not alone occupy this fair Junior's mind, for that would be en- tirely inconsistent with her tri-weekly correspondence from Washington, D. C. Next in importance is her "insignifi- cant" appetite on spread nights in South West Tower, and this may be pictured best by her habitual "ls there anything more?" '38 DOROTHY REYNOLDS Addison, N Y "Give to the world the best that you have "And the best will come back to you Here's another maiden whose "crowning glory" may well be a source of pride. She has fetching clothes, too, and is always glad to join in a song or merry laughter. Dorothy is never too tired to play for a dance, and as for ability in the domestic line, we will all agree that she has it, if anyone says "fudge-cake." Her chief failing is the lvlozartg her greatest aversion, Ed. Classics. Some people seem to think that Dot asks questions. Do you think so? I like Dot, dori't you? MATTIE H. RISING Elmira, N Y "She doeth little kindnesses "Which most leave undone, or despls ' ln this talented Junior we find the artistic temperament uppermost. She plays the piano till it fairly sings: and dance-well she could dance all night long, if her partner chance to be a certain Syracuse man. But then Mattie is serious, too, as her interest- ing and thoughtful English themes show. She goes in for basket ball, and declares that it is almost as much fun as a tower room spread. She is usually at peace with all the world, and seems happiest when doing some- thing to make someone else enjoy life more. 39 GERTRUDE ROESSLE Elmira, N. Y. "A tongue that can talk withouit harming, "Just mischief enough to tease." lt is an artist who looks out from beneath this cap and gown, and a very talented one, we may add, for she is as clever in sketching from life as she is in copying. Beware of sitting in the same pose for two minutes when Gertrude is near with her pen, or some day you will marvel at see- ing your fair features portrayed in her "Hall of Fame." But then, there is little danger of anyone being able to hold silence when this "Mark Twain" is around to say the funny thing at the funny time, unless it chance to be at a spread, where she is always too busily occupied other- wise for anything but an after-dinner line of jokes. Somewhere among her many perfectly healthy organs she must conceal a bold heart-yea, verily, she dares to go to Analytics. ' ISABEL STEWART Bath, N. Y. "A perfect woman, nobly planned "To warn, to comfort, to command." If you want anything done in a hurry and clone well, do it yourself- or call on "lssie." She has more exe- cutive ability than the whole Junior class. Show us something she cannot do! Her happy face and merry laugh ' win for her many an admirer, especi- ally among the Freshmen. We some-' times charge Isabel of being disloyal to her Alma Mater and tending her allegiance to Cornell. But she does love those foot ball games! She doesn't care what anybody thinks, what she knows, she knows. 40 FANNY M. SWEET Wellsville, N. Y. "How small l am, yet how famous!" Good things always come in small packages you know, and Fanny is little but, oh my! Did you ever hear how she studies early in the morning? Early rising has become habitual with her. She vies with the birds in her improvement of the morning hours. Slumber has no charms for her-. Fanny is always happy except when she is "so mad." Everybody loves her and who could help it that had ever seen her? She refuses to get excited even when she gets a long distance call, and she intends never to fall in love. Hearts lie at her feet by thousands slain by her cruel glance, but she refuses to consider. Time is too valuable, she is here for study and some'day she will go forth to show American youth how school should be taught. RUTH THORNTON "Beauty encha Victor, N. Y. and grace captivates." Who is this stylishly gowned young lady with such charming dark eyes? Why, Miss Thorton, of course. She came to Elmira with an appalling amount of credit, yet spends hours of time happily and industriously solving the mysteries of all the sciences to which she can find en- trance. Nobody loves a good time better than Ruth, and we hope her well developed sense of humor will continue to stand by her through all the critical-situations which life has to offer. 41 LAURA UHL Pine City, N. Y. "Great feelings hath she of her own "Which lesser souls may never know." 4 Our Laura, serenely tall with calm brow and majestic mien, spends most of her time in "Iabs." At any hour of the day you may find her busily engrossed' in some problems that even before you approach shriek aloud, Uscience, science." Then if you have courage enough to proceed in spite of such clamor, you are rewarded by Laura's engaging smile as she cheer- fully ancl quietly explains how long it has taken .to do those twigs or how she has worked over that problem in Physics. Laura is something of an actress, too. As a wealthy society woman in the caste of "Tommy's Wife" she was a great success. Then, too, by her modest and unassuming manners she wins her way into all our hearts. IVAH B. UPSON Big Flats, N. Y. I "Round her eyes her tresses fell- "Whlch were blackest, none could tell." I lvah is mild and tractable, and although she usually knows all about a certain thing, when she is called upon to recite, gets so "fussed" that she forgets about half. ln spite of this, she has courage enough to "stick" to Math., and spends much of her time on the science group. Nlost people insist that she is terribly bash- ful, but that wears off as soon as the ice of formality is broken. This dark- eyed girl likes everybody, and one Junior in particular, whose name she holds a sacred secret, ,lest by chance ' its publication break the spell. 42 o i BETSY VAN ALLEN Watkins, N Y "A happy sort that all the way "To heaven hath a summer's day Otherwise, Betsy Corneyia. Yes, we all know that Betty has a pre- ponderance of intellectual acumen that precludes any possibility of her devoting an extraordinary portion of the illimitable expanse of time to the responsibilities incident to the career of the scholastic experiments. ln these or like terms Betty would obligingly explain why it is that being in a hurry is outside of her experience, that she sweetly devotes the hours of our feverish dashes after knowl- edge to mental relaxation. lt is in some such terms also that she will sail gloriously through the recitation next day. But, Betty dear, we forgive you your brightness, for without it where would you find time for the Happy Hour, for the perusal of Shakespeare, for after-bellular spreads and for that one weakness of yours, crushes? MINNIE VAN VLEET lVlontour Falls, N. Y. e tree of knowledge in your garden grows." Poetess, artist, actress, musician- how shall we immortalize you, "Minne- zarte?" Because you are all of them, we will have none of them, but set you down as we see you day by day. From your name you should be Dutch, but we have seen you, too, as an engaging Frenchman, and we know you have qualities of both. Lessons never trouble you, because in them, as in everything else, you have the faculty of going straight to the point. You are a true humorist, for there is never a situation so discouraging but you can turn it into a joke: and you' never really get cross with us, although you often use very big language to try to make us believe so. In class songs you alone lead us triumphantly, and in more serious moods we all yield to the spell of our "sweet singer." 43 FORMER MEMBERS Gertrude Aldridge Louise Brown Grace Conaughty Harriet Dorman Katherine Harrower Margaret Hillis f Mrs. Arthur Sittig fnee Caroline Hillsleyj Jessie Howell Frances Meddaugh fdeceasedj 44 1912 CLASS SONG Tune--The Days of Old. There's a class in Elmira whose name is well known, 'Tis the class of nineteen twelve: We cheer for the others, yet first for our own, So hurrah now for dear nineteen twelve: The name we have won that we're in for good fun, And surely you'll grant that 'tis true: To attain to the best we have labored with zest, All praise to our college is due. CHORUS Here is Hip Hip Hurrah now for nineteen twelve! Here's a cheer for the Brown and Gold, Oh the very best class is nineteen twelve, So hurrah for our Tiger bold. He is sly, he is quick, And he wins every trick, For his sake we grind and delve: A beauty? He's not! But he's on the spot! Cheer for nineteen twelve! We'll be true to ourselves and our emblem uphold To our class we'll loyal be: We'll be true to our colors, the Brown and the Gold, And true, old Elmira, to thee: As the years come and go, may we each of us know The blessings our college can bring, And when we depart, may we keep in our heart The thought of the song we now sing: CHORUS 45 IMPORTANT EPOCHS IN THE HISTORY OF 1912 FRESHMAN BANQUET ELMIRA COLLEGE May 9, 1909 Toast Mistress-Isabel Stewart "The Faculty". . . ............................ . . . .

Maude Barnes ......Lucy Hall .. . .Miss Dwight .Marguerite Wood When about the house or campus Thou shalt wear the bow of green. Clothe thyself in simple dresses, Strut not. Walk with lowly mien. When at table, be not hasty Thy opinion to express, Look to all thy table manners, Lapse not into thoughtlessness. If thou shouldst on rare occasions ln the elevator ride, Let all others pass before thee Ancl with meeknessstand aside. Use exclusively the back stairs, When above first floor thou arty Let no foolish impulse lead thee From this precept to depart. ln thy room display no photos Of the species masculine, Seek not to evade this dictum Though thy heart with longing pine. When a Soph thou dost encounter Utter not "Hello" or "Say". Henceforth in thy conversation Use no slang words night or day. Twixt the hours of nine and half past Shalt thou seek the water tankg Stay on Freshman floor thereafter As befits thy lowly rank. Learn at once the Alma Mater, To that set thy baby mind, Let no word of it escape thee Though for weary hours thou grind. For thy class song thou shalt honor That sweet ballad "Beautiful Eyes," When thou hearest, its strains, oh fail not To thy feet with speed to rise. From the number on thy room-door Let these facts be hung in rhyme, What thy name and where thy dwelling And thine age at present time.

The red of fiery zeal to win success, Discouragement refusing to confess, The yellow glow of triumph in our work, And joy that lives unknown to those who shirk, The green of jealousy that we may do Ourselves the justice of remaining true To honest effort. This bright symphony, Oh Rainbow goddess, we implore thee, The seven strands of radiant hope to blend, And be our "guide, philosopher and friend." 89 Miss Cornelia Porter' Dwight 90 A TRIBUTE TO MISS DWIGHT Not until the Lackawanna Limited had puffed out of the station on its westward trip, were we thoroughly conscious of how much we had given up to the West. Still we felt not altogether discouraged, for "Though much is taken, a little abides." Indeed Miss Dwight had left us but a little, oh, such a little in the way of a biographical sketch. When we went to her for an account of her life, contrary to our great expectations, she gave us a short and all inclusive reply-"The less said, the quickest mended," was her characteristic response to the appeal. . Owing to the above stated paucity of facts, we pass over the first ten years of Miss Dwight's life, although she is reported to have read fluently at the age of three. Sufficient is it to say that she was a bright, active, studious little missionary girl, living with her parents in Con- stantinople, Turkey. Along with her sister and brothers, she received a great deal of her education in her own home. Under her father's direction she became so proficient in mathematics that, at the age of eleven, she finished Geometry, and, at the early age of thirteen, she completed with much pride, a key to Syrian mathematics. The path to knowledge of those days was much more difficult than that of to-day. Besides regular school work, a great deal of the care of the younger children was the task of Miss Dwight. That deep love and solicitude for those about her which won for her then the title "Little Mother" among the younger children now establishes her as a true and sympathetic friend among all those who have had the honor of knowing her, not excepting her latest protegee, the class of 1912. Then, too, there were always two courses of instruction for which the young missionary children had to prepare: the home school where English was the prevailing language, and the regular mission school, where French was the conversational language. Miss Dwight learned to speak the second language as fluently as her own native tongue. This period of great mental activity had as its goal the chief aim of every missionary child, a visit to America, where the much interrupted education could be bound together and completed. Thus, at the age of thirteen, Miss Dwight landed in New Jersey, where she spent the next five years of her life in an American private school. As she greatly excelled the French teacher of that institution, she was given charge of that department long before she graduated. Again facts fail us, and a number of years must be passed over in comparative silence. One thing is certain though, for which Miss Dwight has always been thankful, she was able to get a position with- out appearing before that terrible assembly, the Board of Education. It is believed that at one time she was summoned before this dire body in view of a position, but that the mere thought struck such terror to her heart, that she hastily fled, accepting a call as associate professor of mathematics at Olivet College, Michigan. As she was a young and green teacher-so she afterwards said-she attempted to perform her several duties in all subjects, whether or not she had specialized in them, a practice which she later abandoned as unsound. For eight years Miss Dwight remained in the middle west. Then she procured a year's furlough and returned east with her sister, through whom she obtained her position in Elmira College. This sister had a friend in Elmira, tofwhom she wrote to see if there was any possible opening there. Dr. Cowles was then President of the college. The matter was referred to him, and after some consideration, Miss Cornelia Porter Dwight was engaged as a member of the Elmira College Faculty, in 1876, which position she held with great efficiency for twenty-four years. On her retirement at Commencement, June, 1910, under the Carnegie foundation, Dr. MacKenzie conferred upon Miss Dwight the honor of being the first of our professors to receive the title "Emeritus," 91 "IN THE GARDEN" Of course you've'all heard that queer little story, It's repeated so often you all know it well, How Adam was led into sorest temptation By his crafty wife, Eve, and in consequence fell. Now it really seems queer that down thru the ages A story is told so very untrue, It really was not the fault of the lady, ' And if you will listen l'll tell it to you. Ill. One evening they sat in the shade of a maple, The birds were twittering about them in glee, When Adam said "Eve, tho' we've lately been dining, A terrible hunger now creeps over me. IV. 'Tis something peculiar, an unusual longing For fruit that in. these parts is costly and rare, Something toothsome and sweet and very good tasting, In appearance, perhaps, like that tree over there." . V. "Oh, Adam, no, no," said Eve in great terror, "That tree we're forbidden, why, even to touch l"' "O pshaw now," said Adam in mocking derision, "Just try but one apple, that's not very much." VI. "The tree must be climbed, but that's a small matter, I'Il boost you right up if you only will go, My head' gets so dizzy when I try the climbing, And that is annoying indeed, as you know." VII. - So Eve with the help of her dear willing husband Climbed up in the tree they were forbidden to taste, She picked a large apple and threw it down smiling And the poor hungry man grasped for it in haste. VIII. He retired to the shade of a sheltering maple, Consuming the apple with evident glee, While poor Eve was struggling and twisting and turning To find some safe way to get out of the tree. 92 ' IX. She finally jumped, landed safe on her feet, Forgetting in haste to pick any more She cried out at once, "Where's my part of the apple?" And Adam reluctantly handed the core. V X. That poor Eve was deceived, influenced, deluded, Is a fact, I am sure, you will all plainly see, And even to-day with their smiles so beguiling There are many old Adams boosting Eves up a tree. x lt- M: K ,ig 2? iff ' 2, 'ei Xi iii: if In l . - X .,-- ,B ,fi ' .X 93 THE FACULTEE By Cheffry Jaucer.

"Pm the Kid that built the Pyramids." l'll take you back to "Good Old New York Town" and dear old "Coney Isle" for you are "The Ideal of My Dreams," "l'd Live and Die for You" so "Smile, Smile, Smile" and "When its Moonlight on the Prairie" you'll "Come Along with Me"?

All the crowd wondered. They had a lovely swim To the owl staid and grim, Then did they capture him: Noble young Freshmen! 102' 103 V THE NEW SCIENCE HALL It was a proud moment for Elmira when on Commencement day, nineteen ten, the first sod was turned for the foundation of the new Science Hall. The building represents years of cherished hopes and careful planning, which by means of Nlr. Andrew Carnegie's gift have finally been made possible of realization. The additional space provided by this well-equipped structure is of great and lasting benefit, since it permits the introduction of new vocational courses whose importance in the modern education ofwomen should not be under-estimated. With the opening of college in September, nineteen eleven, our Science Hall will be ,ready for use. A thrill of happiness stirs every loyal heart at this thought because it means so much. The rosy dreams of the great future awaiting our loved Alma Mater seem much nearer fulfillment since this tangible result of fervent effort slowly but surely opens the way to wide and certain progress. 104 GERMIAH TO THE ELMIRAITES GREETINGS: Now it hath come unto mine ears, even as the portentous sound of the ambulance, that the land of Elmira hath gone up before the Medicinites. Wherefore, I say unto thee, guard thyself against a sudden illness, that thou be not afflicted with absorbent cotton, for verily, verily I say unto thee, Spring Fever gloweth where it listeth, and thy brains and high standings shall be as things that are not. For there were some of Elmira who were wed unto the infirmary for many days, and tears and iodine, yea, even the symptoms of Tonsilitis were unto them as brothers and as a bill that is not paid. And it came to ,pass that Appendicitis came unto three of the Elmiraites secretly and with stealth and did wrestle mightily therewithj and behold weeks went by and likewise mid-year exams and the secret visitor had gone, even as the German Boat. Then there came forth from the land of the Hospitalites three mighty Germs, Scarlet Fever, Blood Poisoning, and Rheumatism, and they arose and spake unto three Elmiraites saying: "Lo, stand forth, and let thy class- work be unto thee even as a greased pig which eludeth thy grasp." And the three Elmiraites wept and were as cuts used up, but they stood forth and strove valiantly and the Germs did flee. Therefore l say unto thee, do thou likewise, for the time is short: yea, the time now is as the college Elevator, slow but sure. For Io, the Thespis key Worketh not, and the telescope squeaketh, but Ornithologiah sweepeth the heavens with his eye. Wherefore, bestir thyself, Elmiraites, and be as the tadpoles in the lake, on the job. Behold I say unto thee, heed not the germ Diamondringitis which goeth about like a roaring liong for who, knoweth aught of Love, its what- ness, or its whenceness, or anything Which is its? But be thou even as the Freshmen leading a. studious and simple life. For verily I say unto thee, it is better to be a sanitary than a greasy Grind. 105 THE COMING OF MARGERT "Well, girls, listen to this, will you? We're to have a real live curiosity among us, and I am its keeper." It was the middle of the afternoon study-hour, but Elizabeth Moore cared nothing for that, as she bounced in upon her five most intimate friends, causing a general disturbance of the peacefully studious atmos- phere of the'room, as well as several sighs, for it is sometimes annoying, when one is full under the sway of the mistress, work, to be interrupted by one to whom that stern delight is -never known. But EIizabeth's intrusions never remained long under the ban of disapproval. She was far too enthusiastic and impelling to be ignored with peace of mind, far too wholesome and overflowing with genuine good feeling to rouse anger. As she perched on the edge of the big desk in triumphant expectation, an indulgent arm swept out of her reach an ink bottle and a mass of neatly-written papers, two frowzy heads, preceded by two entangled pairs of feet and a violently dislodged Latin dictionary, arose from the recesses of the cushions on the sofa: in front of the fire-place a long figure, stretched out in careless ease, expressed amiable interest by rolling over on one side: while one occupant only, seated at the desk, scratched ruthlessly on without tribute to the engaging piece of news. To her Elizabeth directed her attention with a pinch. "Do you hear what I say, Hazel Anderson? Wake up and show your interest in the new member of Happiness Hall." "New member of Happiness Hall!" "What on earth, Elizabeth?" "Well, I rather guess not!" "Unless it be a caretaker, from the looks of this room." "She is joking, of course. But go on Betkins, you have our individual attention." These remarks from the remaining five members of that exclusive institution, Happiness Hall. "Well, not to live right in our little apartment here, of course' 7 three bedrooms and a study would hardly accommodate more than six. But you know there is that other store-room effect in our wing, next to Lucile and me, that could be made into a very pleasant room, and it would be near enough so that I could have a watch make it almost like being in Happiness Hall itself." "For goodness sake, explain yourself, Elizabeth. ls it a pet monkey or a human being that you contemplate bringing to this colle e ani ful oversight, and g , c implanting in the bosom of Happiness Hall?" Lucile, Elizabeth's room- mate, roused herself from the hearthrug to deliver this scathing bit of mixed metaphor. "Neither, dear child," with exasperating deliberation, "and if you will kindly restrain your emotions, I will explain all. Take note of this l tt f ' ' ' e er rom Aunt. Well, in it she says that a dear friend of hers Frau 7 Steinburg-does that give you a thrill?--has just come to live in this country with her daughter, and desiring to place the aforesaid oun Y 9 lady in some suitable place of learning, has called on Aunt for advice ' 106 and assistance. You see the Frau Steinburg is really an American, one of Aunt's chums in her youth, but she married this German Pro- fessor when quite young, and went to Germany to live. Then, although the Professor was very brilliant, and wrote a lot of books on subjects that we, dear young friends, shall never hear of, evidently he didn't collect very much money, for when he died five years ago, about all he left his wife and little girl was an old country house somewhere in Germany, with a German "Grossmutter" to be taken care of as long as she lived. But now the Grossmutter is dead, too, leaving her grand- daughter, by the way, a comfortable sustenance, and Aunt's friend, Emily, as she calls her, has decided to come to her own land for a few years at least. Thus much in preparation, but I will stop if you are tired out." Elizabeth's eyes sparkled wickedly, as she started to refold the letter she had been glancing her. through hurriedly. The response justified there." busy." . ' Madchen is coming within these classic "Oh, go on, don't stop "Truly, we aren't a bit "Do I forsee that the walls?" "Just so, Evelyn dear, thing proceed decently and Mamma began looking about for an institution of learning, and naturally went to Aunt for information. Naturally, too, Aunt immediately thought of Bower College. Don't suppose, however, as Aunt expresses it, that all she had to do was suggest, for the Frau Mamma has very particular ideas about her daughter's education. This is what Aunt says: 'Frau Steinburg anticipates for Margert what she has not had opportunity for before, and what is to her the grand ideal of American education, but don't spoil the suspense. Let every- in order. Well, as I was saying, Frau that is, first of all, a good cultural knowledge and general training, then the benefits of companionship with refined, intelligent girls in the true American and German spirit of Democracy. I have persuaded her, Elizabeth, that Bower College is the place that she desires, and now I leave it to you girls there to prove that I am right.' As Aunt goes on to say, although this little lVlargert has lived in the country most of her life, she isn't by any means provincial, for on account of her father's position in the University, besides his being from one of the best old German families, she and her mother have been used to being with the most cultured and aristocratic people, and she has had advantages that none of us could have. But of course it is going to be terribly hard for her to come into entirely new surroundings like this, and whatever Happiness Hall chooses to do, for my part I am willing to undertake seeing that she is started in here all right, and gets where she belongs." Elizabeth had grown very much in earnest, and her proud little head was held high in the consciousness of her willingness and ability to introduce the strange Margert into the best that Bower College afforded. Her defiance of the attitude of Happiness Hall was not at all necessary, however, and even produced some resentment by the implica- 107 tion that the Hall lacked aught in hospitality or good-feeling. Peace was saved by the quick response of Evelyn Wilson, the tranquilizing spirit of the Hall. "Of course we shall all help if you will let us, Elizabeth, ancl Happiness Hall will do its best to spread the shadow of its roof over' one more occupant." The last pretense of study broke up then in a discussion of ways and means toward this delightful end, but after Elizabeth had flown out again to write an assuring answer to her Aunt's letter, Evelyn filled a pause in the planning of curtains for the new room to say, "lsn't it just like Elizabeth to get us all worked up like this over a person we have never seen, and may not like at all? But then, that is always Betkins, unexpected, but true and warm-hearted just the same." Evelyn did not know, however, of one clause of EIizabeth's letter, which she purposely had not read before the girls, but which had impressed her strongly, and which she now repeated thoughtfully as she sat alone in front of her desk. "I feel that I can trust you, my little Elizabeth, in responding to this test, and if you succeed in making this stranger feel happy and at home in a life so new to her, and at the same time in justifying our institutions, of which we are so proud, to German eyes, you will have proved yourself capable of far more difficult and important things than mere learning from books. And though I, myself, have never seen Emily's daughter, I have the sus- picion, from what I know of her previous circumstances and guess from her mother's letters, that she, too, can give you things well worth your while." So in due time the much looked-for Margert arrived, and took up her abode in the newly-finished room, which, under Elizabeth's persuasive management of school authorities, had been not only emptied, but freshly papered, so that, with the loving touches bestowed by the occupants of Happiness Hall, it looked very homelike and inviting. It was like part of a wonderful dream to the gentle German maiden, who, for the first time in her life, found herself in the midst of the joyous, active, inspiring companionship of girlhood. Every new phase was a delight to her, and no less satisfying was she to her guardians of Happiness Hall, with her slight, neatly clad figure, yellow curls, honest blue eyes, and quaint manners. V "Did you ever see anything so cunning in your life as the way she deferred 'to Miss Howe at dinner?" was the way Nancy Smith expressed it, with gestures of approval. The six, after escorting Nlargert down to dinner on the night of her arrival, settling her in her room, and giving a real American spread in her honor, now, its duty done, had gathered in the study for a confidentialtalk. - No, nor the funny little way she does her hair, and the way she turns her head to look at you, and her queer accent. Aren't we obliged to Elizabeth for having her, girls." As time went on, however, Margert ceased being a curiosity, and became only a pleasant addition to the little circle, and so easily 108 ,and unobtrusively did the German "Madchen" slip into her place that no one noticed when it was that the rest ceased to sit up straight and put on virtuous expressions when she came into the room, or that she began to be the one, instead of they, to plump up the pillows .and straighten the desk after an evening's work. Yet everything was not learned at once, and there were many mistakes to be laughed at kindly, and many things to call the puzzled look to lVlargert's blue -eyes, and produce questions that were never answered. For although Elizabeth, true to her resolve, piloted lVlargert successfully through lessons and classes, through receptions and parties, through the mysteries of faculty distinctions and unwritten laws, yet'to propound answers to all the questions that arose in Nlargert's fertile little brain would be, as she told the other girls, a fit preparation for insanity. 'The most she could do was to assure Nlargert that things in America were different from those in Germany, and then to relieve her feel- ings by running to tell the girls of the latest blunder, a proceeding .sure to produce a burst of merriment, in which Nlargert herself always joined rather uncomprehendingly. What could one do, for instance, when in the midst of a comfortable chat over the chocolate cups, a respectfully inquiring voice would break in, "For what do you call some girls "wad," mein Elisabet? I haf heard you say it many times, and I haf looked in the Worterbuch and I find only "wad, a little mass or hard ball"-nothing more, yet that is what you haf said, is ,it not so?" What could Elizabeth do but what she did, reply amid breath- less laughter that left her eyes sparkling with animation and her cheeks rosy in her own dainty prettiness, that "wad" was an indefinite 'term applied to some people with no particular meaning. Nlargert laughed, too, but the puzzle remained just as it did when she would say to Elizabeth, "Who is that girl with the brown eyes who lives below us, Elizabeth, the one with the soft sprache? She asked me this morning to come to see her." And Elizabeth would answer with a little shrug and a smile, "Oh, one of those girls in our Math class, Margert? Her name is Baldwin, I believe. But l don't know any of those girls. She isn't anyone you would care about, Nlargert." And an indulgent kiss would close the subject. Or perhaps Nlargert would say, "For what is it, Elisabet, that everyone will laugh when I say that Miss Corbert is a - du kannst, eine Liebwerte? Is it not right to like the teacher?" And she would understand no better when Elizabeth explained somewhat incoherently -that Miss Corbert was all right, only rather fogyish, and "don't you know, not the kind of person one would naturally feel drawn toward." So finally Margert stopped asking questions, for, although she never showed it, she was sometimes sensitive about her mistakes, and in spite of Elizabeth's kindness, she stood a little in awe of her complacent self-confidence and her well-set small head. The rest 'of the six, too, were kind enough, and Margert profoundly grateful, but she had the feeling that they were too busy and high-up to be 109 I bothered with her small concerns. Then it happened one day that Nlargert, coming in from class, found Happiness Hall deserted. Trying not to be disappointed, she sat down in her own little room to study, but her mind would wander, she began to write, but the cheerful words that always filled her letters to her mother would not come. Being a sensible soul, lVlargert knew that she was plain lonesome, and that the way to cure it was to get out and look for companionship, so bethinking herself of the brown-eyed girl who had squeezed her hand and invited her to come to see her, she slipped downstairs and knocked, not without some timidity, on the door. lt opened, to disclose to lVlargert's dismayed eyes a party apparently, for cups were clinking and mouths going in the friendliest fashion, but when she would have escaped, the brown-eyed girl drew her in gently, and found a spot for her to sit, while someone else filled her hands with cup and plate, and before she knew it, Margert was one of them, and had forgotten her troubles. She did not mention this incident to Elizabeth, ,feeling that Elizabeth would not be interested, but often after' that she would smile across the class-room to the brown eyes when she felt lonesome, never failing to receive a sympathetic response, and-at first at long intervals, hesitatingly, then with more and more frequency-she would stop in as she passed Martha Baldwin's door on her way upstairs, for a little chat. Once, too, when the "Heimweh" was unbearably hard, when all the long evening she had tried to smile at the jokes of the six, and enter into their happy, careless intimacy, succeeding only in feeling more than ever a stranger, while her heart, in spite of a smiling face, ached, then after the "Good nights" had been said, and she had crept sleeplessly into her little bed, she stepped as silently out, threw her dear, warm German robe around her, and with a little tear for all it meant slipping down its warm surface, she had slipped noiselessly out of the door, down the stairs and into the room where a pair of soft white arms and loving brown eyes had come to seem nearer to her than anything else in all the great strange place. ' 9.1 ik wk is elf elf "Here, you, Nan, hand me that dust-rag. The top of this chandelier is a sight. Another of those small but important details that one is so likely to overlook in a cursory cleaning, so to speak, but which would tell most horribly in the eyes of our distinguished guest." Elizabeth had been elevated to a commanding view of the ceiling by means of a chair on top of the desk, and in wildly waving her arms about, "to adapt herself to the altitude," she had managed to get the dust cloth onthe other side of the room. "How frightful! me to the rescue!" laughed Nancy, dropping the curtain she was helping Evelyn shake. "But do you really think, Elizabeth, that Frau Steinburg will examine the upper air for dust?" "I don't know, these Germans are very neat, Nance, witness my small neighbor, Margert, and if Frau Steinburg is as awe-inspiring as one is led to expect from Aunt's letters, it would be fatal to let 110 ' even one atom of dust drift down upon her fastidious bonnet. You and Evelyn are jewels to help me out this way, for I simply couIdn't have this room as the maid leaves it, and it would be pretty hard work to do everything all alone. Aunt laughs at my methods of clean- ing at home, but for once I intend to have everything exactly right, so that she can only gaze and admire. Did you ever see anything like that dust? Half an inch thick. Ugh, let me get down quick and shake this cloth. Oh, how I hate dirt!" ' "Valiant Betsy," pronounced a strong young voice, as Lucile's tall, rather droopy figure, loaded with packages, appeared in the door. You certainly have made progress. Only one thing I see lacking. You forgot the silver polish for the window panes." A remark, Lucile, which shows you entirely ignorant of the field. Did you never hear the great principle, 'Nothing in excess?"' "Haven't I, after being three years under Dr. Hadley's instruction? It is the principle on which I get my lessons. But there is a time for everything, Bets. Just now it seems to be to make everything as shiny as possible. Hope this sofa hasn't received the last touches." Lucile threw herself down on it, gazing unconcernedly around the room. "When is it we are to entertain?" H H "For goodness sake, Lucile," Nancy paused in her work in disgust. "Have you lived in the same atmosphere with Margert for the last two weeks, and don't know that "die Mutter" is due to-morrow, promptly at four, and that Happiness Hall is turning Itself inside out to do the occasion justice?" "Never mind Lucile, Nancy. Nobody does," derided Elizabeth, diving head foremost after her room-mate. "Do rest a while, girls. I can't unless you do, and I am ready to drop." ' "Just a moment, dear." Evelyn's head was bending anxiously over the curtain. "I will mend this tiny hole while we talk. We are almost as excited as when we expected Margert herself, aren't we? Do you remember what plans we made for her, as if she were a doll to be passed around? I wonder what she thought, and if the child really is happy." "Why, I think so Evelyn. I am sure she always appears cheerful. But she would anyway, I suppose, she is so self-sacrificing, almost too much so, I think, for she never has the heart to be cool to anybody. You know what I mean, all the queer sort of people always hang on her. But at any rate I guess Margert isn't wholly unhappy, from some- thing Aunt said." Elizabeth stopped with a conscious blush quite unusual to her. . It was lost on Evelyn who only asked without looking up, "Well, what, Elizabeth?" While Nancy with mock politeness and more dis- cernment encouraged, "Don't let us fuss you." I "Oh, only that Frau Steinburg is always raving to her about the grand girls Margert is getting acquainted with, and especially "the one little friend" whom she says she hopes to take to Germany with her when they go next summer. Aunt says Frau Steinburg is too 111 delicate to mention names." Elizabeth tried to speak indifferently and failed. She was brought to by Nancy's seizing her hand in a rapturous grasp. "Good for you, Bets. But I hope the rest of us can claim a little share of the praise." It was Lucile, as usual, who threw on the cold water. "Well, I can't see that any of us have done any great amount for Nlargert, except to kill ourselves and her for the first few weeks with spreads, and for the succeeding time to allow her to enjoy the privilege of our society." "Shi" Evelyn's voice warned just in time. The next moment lVlargert herself stood in the door, glowing with life from the brisk walk, her eyes resting on each in turn with their characteristic honest gaze, seeing much, requiring nothing. All fears that she had over- heard anything disturbing to herself were set to rest, however, by the smile that, as it popped in and out of the corners of her mouth, lighted up her whole usually quiet face. That smile, as Nancy had said, had been present for the past two weeks, and it increased visibly from that time on, till, the next day, it enveloped with a positive radiance lVlargert and everything about her as she sat very near the long-expected "lVlutter," pretending to enjoy the dainty hospitality dispensed in the name of Happiness Hall. Modest pride beamed from every line of her face, and well it might, for not a member of Happiness Hall but had fallen under the spell of the tall, quiet-faced, sweetly dignified woman who had stepped out of the carriage with Elizabeth's Aunt. Elizabeth, herself, had been completely won, and as a result was unconsciously showing her- self at her very best, talking with an ease and grace that made Lucile wistfully envious, showing delicate little courtesies with just enough deference to the older woman, laughingly covering up blunders, explain- ing references and creating a spirit of homeliness. There came a moment, however, when Nlargert and her mother had drawn a little to one side, and Elizabeth, standing nearby in the group of girls around her Aunt, heard Frau Steinburg's low-pitched voice. "And the little girl whom you have spoken of so often, Tochter- lein, the one with the great longing for our Deutschland, but with the little money, is she not here?" Elizabeth hardly knew she was listening till Margert's reply came eagerly, "Oh, you mean the little Martha. Such a Liebchen, lVlutter. You will love her, and I do now, for she is one who can take away the ache when one wants the dear home. I haf told her so much of it, but would she not, be surprised if we should really take her there, and would it not be splendid, Mutter?" "Perhaps we shall see, But, Susschen, we are forgetting our friends," and as Elizabeth's Aunt turned with a smile of understand- ing, 4'Margert was only telling me of the dear friend whom I wrote you of, the little one who has few pleasures, and whom we were wish- ing we might take to our home across the- water. You too ofcourse know her, Elizabeth, dear?" 112 But Nlargert, though scarcely understanding, had seen the look of quick surprise pass over EIizabeth's face, and then disappear, leaving only two red cheeks as a witness, and she answered for her, "One cannot know everyone here, liebe Mutter, and that I came to know Martha and her friends, it was only through being a stranger, do you not see?" The words, meant so kindly, went to Elizabeth's conscience like a knife, but she recovered her self-possession and made some attempt at conversation, vaguely hearing Frau Steinburg's interested questions and her Aunt's sympathetic comments concerning these friends below- stairs, of whose existence Elizabeth had hardly known, and whose virtues appeared in a new light under Nlargert's eager touch. She knew nothing except that she wanted to crawl away and hide her head. The rest of the afternoon was- like a night-mare, at the end of which Elizabeth, in the privacy of her own room, threw herself into her Aunt's arms in a fit of nervous sobbing. "Oh, Aunt, I have failed miserably, and I did so want to succeed. I shall never trust myself again as long as I live, and certainly you cannot." "Nonsense, my dear, look at me. Do I look as if I had lost faith in you? Perhaps things have not' turned out just as we should wish- it is never easy to find ourselves less important than we thought-but I am proud of my niece to-day because she has shown herself capable of control in a difficult situation. And-pardon me, dear, for mention- ing it-do you remember that I said perhaps you too might learn a lesson from the little Nlargert. I think you have learned it." "I'Il not forget it right away either," pronounced Elizabeth, who had brightened and looked up with a decided shake of her head, "and just to prove l've reformed, l'm going to get acquainted with everyone of those friends of Nlargert's that l've ever called queer, that is, if she will help me, and what's more, I am going to like them. But, Aunt, if you ever again want to send me a protegee, you had better procure one that isdesperately wicked. It would serve me right, and beiess dangerous for her. It is too hard on the good kind, and there couldn't be another Nlargert." I 113 ? ? ?

"You're the eye of my apple, dear one, l love you so," He muttered while his fiddle sadly squeaked. "You're bow-eyed and cross-leggedg all this l'd have you know," ln high disdain the lady madly shrieked. Violently he urged her his charms 'to reconsider, She looked in scorn upon him there beneath And snarled with wrathful snickers-"go court the merry widder," Her pearly lips drawn tight o'er ruby teeth. "Alas," he howled, "she spurns meg right gladly would l die." The knife of his blade he straightway drew And fell upon it sideways, then softly yelled "Good-bye." The maiden cried, "Well, now, what shall l do!" Forth from the place she walked then with painful steps and slow, And plunged into the river's icy bed.

Miss Mumford wishes to announce that any stray articles of clothing or other personal property may safely be returned to her room as no identifi- cation or proof of ownership will be necessary. Owing to her supposition that Mark Twain's works are written in German, Miss M.

All persons desiring to dispose of extra cuts at bargain prices may find eager purchasers at the Caseley resi- dence, Junior corridor. Miss Nicholson informs us solemnly fin Germany that "die Deutschen" eat rats for supper. Miss Goetz offers some interesting data for the History of -Education, i. e., the Spartans gave their children implements of war, such as "toy cannons," to play with. N The plans for the beautiful and stately air castle to be erected when the new gymnasium is completed have been sent to New York for the last time. The building will be made comfort- able during the winter months by means of hot air furnished gratis by the class of 1913. The castle con- servatory will be a source of especial pride to the institutiong the main deco- rative feature is to consist of air plants arranged in fanciful and con- ventional designs. ln the center a fountain will be stationed, which being attached to a device recently invented by Professor Richmond, will be kept 126 automatically supplied with liquid air. The upper story of the edifice will be placed at the exclusive disposal of the 'College Air Ship Club. It may be advisable here to warn all aviators against catching their anchors in the nets which we have good reason to believe are to be stretched over the principal streets of the city. We are informed that this precaution is due to the serious damage to the lVlayor's silk hat done last week by a falling squash. Trolling for cows in the rural districts is also strictly prohibited. Another improvement to which we look forward with ,great anticipation is the garage for the college automo- biles. A broad and expensive speed- way is 'to be built around the college lake,4 and one-half hour gymnasium credit per month will be allowed to the young lady successfully complet- ing five rounds without murdering a water-toad. BOTANICAL TOOTS. The crimson Rambler is becoming more and more prevalent. A compara- tively new species is that having an alcoholic odor and frequenting the back yard to ask for a hand out. The Button Bush is quite hard to find and can be detected only by the ease with which the blossoms come off. A well preserved specimen of "Bouncing Bet" can be seen at almost any time in room 40. Those interested in the study of hot house plants will find a lovely- pink Rose on exhibition at room 29. There is a sunny and beneficial atmosphere for the cultivation of- Sweet Williams in room 59. A charming little Daisy is being well cared for in room 38. A Hourishing Virginia creeper has its habitat in Senior Hall. A prize collection of roots may be seen at any time by applying to the members of Dr. HamiIton's star Greek class. HELPFUL TOOTS FOR THE COLLEGE HOUSEHOLD Nice fresh perch for Fridays can be obtained at any department store where bird cages are kept. If the soup looks like a boiled mud puddle, appeal to the consumer's sense of natural beauty by garnishing with lettuce or anything else suggestive of a grassy fringe. Rag rugs are finding more and more favor with the ultra fastidious. In case of lack of material, procure a reliable bull-dog to roam about the back yard during the tramp season. SUGGESTIVE TOOTS FOR THE ADMINISTRATION. We recommend frequent doses of "Mozart," particularly of the "Squaw Man" brand, for the subduing of obstreperous Freshmen who persist in being too cheerful. To cultivate a spirit of heroism as well as an aesthetic appreciation of the beautiful, we recommend a few hours of Greek Archaeology flavored with the alluring odor of H2SO4. Great care must be exercised, how- ever, as the treatment is a very powerful one and 'one dose a week is all that is considered advisable for the strongest constitution. . TAPS.
