James W. Wku.uns, D. D. REV. JAMES W. WELLONS, D. D. THE MOST LOYAL FRIEND TO OUR ALMA MATER, AND THE ONE WHO STOOD CLOSEST TO HER SIDE FROM HER BIRTH, WE DEDICATE THE SECOND ISSUE OF THE PHIPSICLI Rev, James Willis Wellons, D,D, ;iv ' . J. W. WELLOXS, D. D., to whom this second volume of the Phipsicli is deservedly and affectionately dedicated, was born in Sussex County, Virginia, January i. 1826, and is now a vigorous thinker at the advanced age of 89 years. The universal esteem in which he is held is abundantly attested by the salutation applied to him by all, " Uncle Wellons, " not out of respect to his years, but in appreciation of his pious life and vital concern in everyone. Dr. Wellons was licensed in 1854 and ordained to the Gospel ministry by the North Carolina and Virginia Christian Conference in 1856, and druing the sixty years that have since elapsed he has missed only two sessions of his Conference — one due to his being behind the Federal lines during the Civil War, the other due to serious illness — a record that we doubt can be matched. He has never missed a session of the Southern Christian Convention since 1854, and but one session of the American Christian Convention, and then on account of sickness. His strict attendance on his Conference sessions and his Church Conventions, has not been perfunctory, but arose out of the vital response of a devoted heart to duty, and no man has exercised a more powerful influence nor proven a worthier counselor than he. The beauty of his life is now seen in the sweet and gracious spirit in which he rejoices to see younger men taking the place of leadership so long conceded to him — sweet and gracious beyond the portrayal of language, because so sublimely sincere and absolutely unaffected. Dr. Wellons had preached as a local preacher by the authority of Barrett ' s Church, Southhampton County, a., for two years before he came to North Carolina and accepted license by his present Conference, but up to his twenty- sixth year was an interested layman, being a deacon, and also secretary and treasurer of the Church. It was at the earnest solicitation of his fellow-laymen that he first ' gave serious thought to the ministry. They recognized his rare gift for that important calling, and sixty-two years of devoted service has given abundant proof of his divine appointment to this work. Dr. Wellons made Franklinton, N. C, his headquarters for many ears, traveling from that town to his Churches, always among the best and most im- portant. He was a gifted singer and had great success as a revivalist. His ministry has been blessed in e.xtraordinar}- manner by the establishment of new Churches and the ingathering of souls in established congregations. The Church at Durham, N. C, finally succeeded in attracting him from Franklnton and as its pastor he continued in unstinted service till his health callapsed in 1902 and he came to Elon College to live out his days, in retirement as he thought, in the shadow of an institution of which he had been a staunch supporter from its origin, but God willed it otherwise. L ' ncle Wellons lives in the West Dormitory of the Colege afar from retired life, being co-pastor of the College Church and in constant, vital touch with everything connected with the College. Dr. Wellons was a member of the Provisional Uoard of Trustees of the College, offered the first prayer for the success of the institution under the sacred gimi tree now facing East Dormitory before a brick was made for the construc- tion of the institution, has always been a member of the Board of Trustees and of its Executive Committee, and has never missed a session of either Xo man has ever rendered more valuable service to Elon in counsel, devotion, or unstinted service than the venerable man of God to whom this vohune is most appropriately dedicated in love and admiration. In addition to all this. Dr. Wellons has always been a liberal giver to the College and has left all his estate to it by the provisions of his will, the same to be used as a nucleus for the establishment of a Chair of Theology in Elon College, an object to which he has devoted the last few years and in which he v ould have achieved larger success but for the pressure of other claims upon the generosity of the financial constituency of the College. Dr. Wellons has been a fruitful writer as well as busy pastor. His second volume was the Life and Labors of Rev. W. B. Wellons, D.D., his sainted brot ' ier, a most versatile and eloquent preacher, whose untimely death from over-work is mourned to this day by a host who knew him but to love and trust. This was preceded by a volume on Family Prayer — a subject to which his heart and atten- tion have recently returned and in the hope of furthering which he has just published a most excellent booklet entitled. Family IVorship — Suggestions for l!s Cultivation and Success. He has also published a genealogical work on I ' hc Wellons Family — a book calling for wide and patient investigation. All these volumes have had a wade circulation and exerted a great influence for righteous- ness, to the development of which his fruitful years of long-living have been assiduously devoted. The Class of 1Q14 has honored itself in honoring this veteran friend of all that makes for the uplift of human society and of the individual human soul. And every friend of Elon College will congratulate them in their expression by this act of their appreciation for him who has lived the unmarried life because he was married to the interests of the Kingdom, to which his whole career has been devoted in love and consecration.

Senior Class History |X September the thinl, 1910, we, the class of ' 14, arrived on the hill with such a feeling as only Freshmen can es:perience — ■ strange, bewildered and worst of all — really lost. Of course, you already have a mental picture of us as a whole — the word Freshman implies all, and we, I can assure you. lived up to the very letter of the term. For the first few days we heard of things that before we reached this clime had not even invaded our most unheard-of dreams. Indeed the realization was quite different from our anticipation. We were a conservative set and it was not vmtil our Sophomore vrar that we organized the class. We waited to see who would still be in rank the following year ; for as you know there is a great sifting out for various reasons. When we organized in our Sophomore year, our number was about thirty, and a wiser, more sophisticated crowd you could hardly find. We began in earnest and with our motto, " nihil nisi optimum " we have ever tried to realize its meaning: and for following years " nothing but the best " has been the slogan of our class. From the very first the members have taken a decided interest in all phases of college life. In those organizations tending toward the development of the moral and spiritual side of life we have taken our part. Also in that field which means so much in college life — athletics — we were not wanting for men. In all kinds of sport we were well represented. We lived through the year just as all Sophomores do. We felt very much the same as is the Sophomore ' s opinion of himself — that is, wise and important. We too soon may have forgotten that the past year witnessed us as Freshmen in the true sense of the word and heaped upon the lower class advice that only the experienced should give. But these traits in our third year gave way to sober, level-headed juniority. We now began to get a glimpse of ourselves as we appeared to others. ' Twas now that we strove to be rather than to seem. This year was undoubtedly one of the happiest. It was in this year that we had the great pleasure and privilege of entertaining that dignified and austere body — the Seniors. Nothing could have made us realize more fully that we were part of the college than to have our names conected in this way with the Seniors. Again we had this satisfying sen- sation when in the Junior-Senior debate, much to the dejection of our opponents, the debate was won by the negative — our side. In the following fall only sixteen of our number came back to the old oak grove to still pursue for the few remaining riionths, the long-sought-for diploma. At last we are Seniors, but instead of feeling our importance and that we are nearing the close of our school days, we realize more than ever that it is just the beginning and that we are soon to say good-bye to our old .-Mma Mater; that we are to enter into that broader and higher school of life — experience. Senior Prophecy illERE am I? llave I always been living- this careless, free life, drifting on a beautiful lake with a tiny, wee girl of six. my only companion ? Alas ; not so, what a change a few wrecks can make it one ' s life! Less than two months ago I was a school girl, and instead of a blue linen dress, I wore a black cap and gown, being on the whole a very distinguished looking person. Immediately after commencement. I hastened home, but my stay there was brief, for soon after my arrival I was asked to become the companion of this dear, little " Sunshine. " Suddenly she cried out " Oh, Comrade ; do stop dreaming and look. TMd you ever see anything so beautiful? " Glancing up, I saw our boat had drifted ashore and the child was standing in the farther end with both hands clasjDed. while just before us was the most sublime scene I had ever beheld. The elements were aglow ; the sun in all its splendor shone behind the dark clusters of trees and in the midst of it all stood a horse, with head uplifted and nostrils expanded, as if ready to plunge into the lake. Lpon his back sat a stately figure arrayed in armor, with a sword of flashing fire in his hand. Fully astounded and transported with admiration, my first thought was that Parsifal, the Knight seeking the Holy Grail, stood before me ; but gradually and with regret, I realized that the age of Chivalry had passed. Then it was that he began to speak: " Maiden, I hold within my hands the sword of knowdedge. " I at once thought of my classmates and with a voice trembling with excitement I asked him the future of the class ' 14. His countenance fairly shone as he waved his sword once, twice, three times above his head and thrust it forward. Then it was that the sword of knowledge unfolded itself into a large volume, from the pages of which he read the future of my fifteen classmates, in a rich. tranc|uil voice, the fullness of which seemed to pierce my very soul. " Your president, F. F. Myrick, the leader and stay of your class, who through- out his course was honored by all and surpassed by few, will spend his life traveling in behalf of the Y. M. C. . . : in which work as all other, he w ill be successful. " Well, thought I. one member of our class, at least, bids fair. Turning to the next page he continued : " The charming and attractive blond of your class will go on in her careless, free way, unable to decide in favor of either of her admirers, Marvin or George, so great is her desire to deal justly with them both, until becoming discouraged, she gives them both up. fnr lube! Barrett will go as a missionary to the far awa - fieUN of India. " Before recovering from that shock, I received another as great, for he turned to me two pictures of a young man. one taken while in College, the other a few vears later. What a change a few years had efTected ! It was almost impossible to believe the energetic school-boy, ever surrounded with companions, to be the same as pictured later. He no longer stood erect, but with bowed head and drooped shoulders, he ever plodded his wear)- way. Revell had become a farmer and companionless, save for his dog. " Poor fellow, " unconsciously escaped me. " I guess he is waiting for the missionary to return. " Still more amazed I listened as he read, " Viola and Grace Rollings will become so interested in the salvation of souls that they will join the Salvation Army and may be seen standing for hours on the street corners, begging alms for starving unfortunates, crowding the cities. " Turning another page he continued : " Elon ' s greatest talker and one of her best athletes has a bright future before him, because his energies will be turned from things of the world, and Jack Johnson will one day through his eloquence of speech become America ' s greatest revivalist. " I listened, and lo ! could it be possible that I heard aright ? Had the quiet, pensive little Emma Sallie Holland really become a chorus girl and ballad dancer accompanied by Mr. J. F. Morgan, who when at Elon was a ministerial student, and thought to be a consecrated Christian. Again turning to the book of knowledge he read: " Although Sallie Foster had a number of admirers, she will never marry, owing to the fact that not one of the young men chanced to be perfect; so she will go in training, and will do a great work in this sin-cursed world, as a trained nurse. " Thus, on he read : " The most pious and dignified of your class, Lillian Johnson, will become the leading society girl of Raleigh, tho, life there will soon grow monotonous and she will go to New York, where she will join the Suffra- gettes. Then all papers of interest will be filled with her speeches in their behalf. " It was as one in a dream, I sat and listened as he read on: " Mr. Rountree will marry as expected by all, and growing fond of a life of excitement, he will become a lecturer for moving pictures, while the pretty face of his wife mav be ever seen at the ticket window. " Yet again he turned the leaves of knowledge, and from them read as follows : " The studious, straightforward Nina Pinnix of all girls will be found to have deceived her classmates, in that throughout her course she had been engaged to Gilmer Holland. They were married a few weeks after their graduation, and the doctor of your class, as thought to be, will one day be a great singer and his wife one of the world ' s best accompanists. After a few years, millions will flock to the recitals given by Mr. and Mrs. Holland. " Still again he turned and read: " ' era Gay, instead of becoming a farmer ' s wife, as expected, will find that her attachments for Elon are so great that she will not be able to remain away, so she will become matron for the Christian Orphanage, and the greater part of her life will be .spent ministering to orphans ' needs. " Slowl) ' my Knight turned the last leaf and continued, in almost a whisper: " The last of your number will rise to be the man that is within him. L ' rquhart Newman. Elon ' s greatest athlete, will, after a few years, relieve his father oi the responsible position as Dean of the College and will prove a blessing to his Alma Mater. " Closing the book of knowledge, which once more took the form of a sword, the Holy Knight vanished as mysteriously as he came. Still I sat as one entranced until aroused by the child. It dawned upon me then that from association my mind was becoming as creative as that of the little, imaginative " Sunshine. " And its fruits should by all means be given to the public. Thus was written the prophecy of the Class ' 14. Senior Class Poem iritli apologies to the Muse On a sea of lore and knowledge We have sailed four years in college O Friend ! believe us, " twas not serene, Not as rumor has it — a summer ' s dream. For in this tideless wave of life There ' s been to each, some struggle, some strife. Until today we ' ve bourne it together. Caring nought for storm, nor wind, ni r weather. Sixteen endeavorers have steered ardently to shore ; Each fibre pulsating a ceaseless roar ; But each must choose our paths at will, Not forgetting the voice that cries from the Still. Today in person we sever communion ; Yet we feel somewhere there ' s a grand reunion. For the friends and classmates that now are parting Have a goal to pursue, and must be starting. In the future our past must not dominate, Since our emoluments and achievements were gained by Fate. With ideals centered upon the word " Success, " A zeal to attain that and nothing less. Just a little beyond a sun-tipped horizon shall peep ; Just a little beyond shall beam our duty to meet. We plead for a guidance irrespective of toil. With a faith to surmount every turmoil. A debt immeasurable we owe our institution. For she has kept us in a state of evolution. To her we pledge our hearty co-operation, r.ecause her patient forbearance has aided our education. .And now to the Faculty and to all we leave behind. Your loyalty is safely anchored in our mind. Whatever good within this sphere we reap. Each and every laurel we ' ll send to you to keep. Junior Class.

Iit Oma I ' tlev Junior Class History IT was in the fall of i )ii that the ilhistrioiis class of 1915, the l)resent Junior Class, emersjed from their prehistoric period of development, and entered our grand old institution of learning, Elon College. When the opening of the school in the fall rolled around we boarded the trains from many climes, bound for Elon. We had no idea then what lay before us. All we had in mind was to reacli Elon. We were met and welcomed at the train by the faculty and members of the Senior Class, whose most peculiar pleasure it was to intro- duce us to the gazing Sophomores and Juniors, who took great delight in help- ing us get our rooms and in taking us to supper. Early next morning it was heard from every nook and corner. " Go matricu- late. " So ofif the stray children went to matriculate, hardly knowing what ma- triculate meant. The next day we went on classes, and it was during that day that we were called by the Faculty and the upper classes the biggest bunch of " boneheads " that had ever struck Elon. But what if we were called the biggest class of blockheads that ever came to Elon ! We soon proved to the professors that " first impressions are not always the truest. " But our greatest glory came when we broke all records and organized the first Freshman class — for none other had ever dared to do such an unheard-of- thing at Elon. On the evening of February seventh, nineteen twelve, we met and chose the following as our ofificers : President, Oma Utley ; Secretary, John L. Farmer ; Treasurer. Nellie Davis. Then we adopted as our motto : " Lahore et Honore. " By labor and with honor we were continually striving. The morn- ing after we had organized we felt as big as Seniors. Time rolled on and exami- nations were upon us, it meant another pleasant association with our classmates at the place we all loved. Another September found us again ' mid the sturdy oaks, not as " Freshies " . but wise, ferocious " Sophs " . We, of course, felt our importance, and smarting under the humiliations to which we had been subjected the year before gave full rein to our feelings by offending the poor " Freshies " . Our Sophomore year was an eventful one, for we were bent on acquiring the maximum amount of knowl- edge in the minimum amount of time. How delightful it was to return as Juniors last fall, to our old haunts in the buildings and feel that we had risen above all childish conceits and contentions of the " Freshies and Sophs " . How serenely we looked down and saw the strut- ting of these young cockrels. We will not mention the great things that we have done in athletics, for every class has a share in this part of college life. Suffice it to say that we have done our part — our full share and have won many class championships. We have many of the best speakers in cnlles e — we defeated the Freshmen in 1912. and made tlie Seniors think they were gone this time, tho ' they won by a close decision. Our members are leaders in every walk of college life — in society halls, class rooms — in all we are admired by the faculty and looked up to by the other classes. About the middle of January. 11J14. we began to plan for the Junior-Senior reception to be given February 20. Xeedless to say. this was the best ever given by any Junior Class at Elon. So here ' s to 1915I May he ever be successful I And to Green and Gold! May they ever be victorious. HlSTORIA.V.

For three years we ' ve labored with might and main That our golden visions we might attain. Though our minds are weary, our hearts are true, And now our duty we shall still pursue Until comes our glad graduation day, When we our sheep-skins get and sail away. We are a classy class, as all have told : Being, indeed, more modest, than over-bold. Howe ' er we ' ve nothing at all to hide : And to our reccjrd we may jioint with pride. In scholarship the Juniors lead them all; May the high standard they have set, ne ' er fall. Hut may those following, both great and small. Devoutly list ' to Inspiration ' s call.

March Alvrtlc : Ioscr Sophomore Class History |1TH ardent and burning desire to explore the mysterious and stormy sea of knowledge, the tide of mystic fortune washed our barks into this spacious harbor of learning. The first thing we did was to organize. This we did with little diffi- culty and less assistance from " wiseacres " . We were pre- sided over by Harwood. After the novelty of college life had worn off, we looked about us to see in what fields of activity we could show our prowess. In basket-ball it was not long before the scalps of the higher classmen were dangling at our belt ; in baseball our good fortune did not desert us. Atkinson ' s " spitters " proved an enigma to the slug- gers of the other classes who bit the dust in defeat. On the varsity baseball and basket-ball teams five of our classmen were conspicuous figures. After a year of arduous toil, and unceasing devotion to our studies we returned home, with all the knowledge a Freshman is supposed to have attained. The summer months sped by with great rapidity, but not too fast for us, as our anticipations were high. At the next meeting of our class we found our numbers much the less from the vacation, but cheered by the thought that to the fewer the greater share, each cheerfully set himself to the task, and began to browse upon the fields of Sophomore knowledge. To lead us in tliis, our most trying year, we wisely chose " Red " Parks to wield the gavel. There is no phase of college life neglected by the ambitious Sophs; you will find them in basket-ball, you will find them in baseball, you will find them leading in Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. and on many an occasion you may hear their voices pealing forth in forensic oratory on the Elon rostrum True to our motto: " For victory we struggle, " we are setting an example that the future classes may emulate.

White Freshman Class History iX September 2, 1913 we, the young men and women that com- pose the Freshman Class, shook hands with our beloved ones at home and departed for Elon College. We were now beginning our college career, the thing that we had long wished for. When we arrived on the hill we found things very different from what we expected. We were met at the station by the kind and friendly upper class- men and ushered to our dens in the different domiitories. There they tried to console and nurse us until we recovered from that dreadful disease, " home- sickness " ' . We were treated kindly by the Sophs in every way, and were not carried to the athletic field and placed upon barrels to do all kinds of acrobatic stunts at the risk of our lives. On September the third it was announced that all Freshmen follow their predecessors to the president ' s office for matriculation. Then we underwent what all the classes before us had termed a " peculiar sensation " , and it was a peculiar sensation for us too. We were like the man that underwent an operation for appendicitis, we didn ' t know whether it was matriculation or professional curi- osity. But at any rate we do know that we stood there in the office wedged in between the big fat Seniors and the raw-boned Sophomores until our backbones wore holes in our hats and our feet went to sleep. We stood there for three mortal hours, but at last we caught sight of the " bursar " and were registered. He gave us some little cards that seemed entirely worthless, and we were told to carry them before the various professors to have our work arranged. Next came the reception which was of interest to all Freshmen. There we met the Honorable Faculty and the lads of the class had the pleasure of becom- ing acquainted with the fair sex. Everything went along nicely and the time for organization soon came around, which took place October 15. This was a happy time for us, for we were now feeling that we were getting well launched out upon the sea of college life. We could now come into closer contact with each other and know each other better. As we gathered in Dr. Amick ' s recitation room for organization in with us came Mr. Merritt, with Air. H. S. Smith on one side and Mr. B. M. Williams on the other, we suppose for the purpose of helping him carry his speech which he delivered later in behalf of a certain young lady — a candidate for office. He showed in this speech his ability as an orator. I feel safe in saying that ours is going to be one of the greatest classes that Elon has ever had. We are represented in the field of athletics by Morrette, who no doubt is one of the best all ' round athletes Elon has ever had. It was he who caused Elon to win sfame after eame of basket-ball n er the best teams in the state. We are represented on the platform l y Smith , Truitt. and White. Tliese young- men have shown their oratorical abilit)- in their societies, and their abilitx- as debaters was shown in the Freshman-Sophomore debate. . nd with the pen we are represented by Harris and Fleming-. I might mention each one in the class, but it is useless, for what thc - have already done indicates that the class is going to make itself known, for the next four years and in after life. And the class of uji . with the determination it has behind it, will o forth prepared for the duties of life. HiSTOUI.W. Freshman Class Poem We deal with facts both bold and true. No vision of ours will be written for yon ; The time has come when we start our tale — Either we gain or we lose and fail. We have only started onr college career, The work is not easy, the goal is not near : But what can surpass, " No Palm without Dust " As an urger in this race of trust? We glory in onr work and strive for the best Since we have elected Miss Mary West As leader of a band of large and sincere Sturdy young freshmen who work b - the year. H. S. Smith is a man well known. His mind is for work and his heart for home; As second, elected Smith ' s place is to be In the chair sometimes, but never at sea. Our secretary is not famous, but she In manners and works resembles a bee ; Miss Simpson it is who records the date Of meetings so rare that they always seem late. For writing onr letters Miss Atkinson we chose, While one of deep thought did peacefully dose; He awoke with a start and exclaimed right out You ' ve done a good thing and I ' m going to shout. The money we have is scarce but hard ; Miss Lorena Garrett is keeping this wad. Her salary is small but so is the cash ; May both move forward as well as the class. Our lives have a purpose, as you will lind By reading Crumpton ' s story of the Freshmen line. Our lives and works, we hope they have been For one purpose only and that is to win. Our speakers are both in form and thought Likely to gain that for which they have -vroiis ht. Messrs. White and Truitt are these orators by name. Their talent is great and so is tlieir aim. Purple and Gold are the colors we like To wave for our brothers as they strive in the figbt. The fight of this life is hard and severe . nd onr little waving will be appreciated here. We cannot attain our model ' s perefection. But we may do well and follow the direction Of the pansy in nature so perfect she grows ; May each one persevere wherever he goes. Poet, (S ( B g Kerns.

An alumnus, in the broader and truer sense, is one who has been nourished by an institution and to whom that institution is dear. It is more or less incidental whether he successfully com- pleted the course of instruction required and received as a reward therefor a degree conferring upon him a certain dignity and giving him perforce a certain stamp of approval, or whether, for any one of a number of reasons, he dropped out and became, what some have been pleased to call, a member of the " old guard " . A far more important considera- tion is: Did the institution leave the impress of its idealism upon him and en- large the horizon of this world, making him prepared and willing to take his place in performing real service in a real world? A man or woman who graduates, so to speak, from the family life and goes out to make for himself a place in the world or, what is more important, to become a new center about which the world of home shall revolve, carries with him or her certain obligations and pleasant duties to the family which he or she left. Among these is the duty to communicate with the folks at home and visit them from time to time keeping them informed of important matters aflfect- ing his or her life: to keep ever in front of his mind means of advancint, ' - and improving the family lot. land in success or failure always to know that the family loves him and shares his success or failure with him. A means for encouraging the performance of these duties and stimulating the assumption of these obligations to their Alma Mater is the Alumni Associa- tion of F.lon Colege. Through it, the alumni make themselves felt in shaping the policies of the administration of their college, and by it is kept alive that in- terest in her welfare on the part of those who studied there without which she would be poor indeed. The Association now has a very definite aim. It has not been without aim heretofore. But, perhaps, its markmanship was poor. There was needed some large task worthy of the love and desire to serve which should call forth a noble response. This was found in the task which the Alumni Association, in behalf of all the loyal sons and daughters of Elon, assumed at the Commencement June. 191 3, in undertaking to pay for the handsome new gymnasium and dormitory now named, in recognition of that determination, the Alumni Building. The Alumni of Elon have followed with deep interest and sincere admira- tion her constantly enlarging field of usefulness and the growing recognition of her merit as a high-grade institution of learning. They have always responded most liberally to her calls for service — none more so. In this undertaking they are to have the privilege of erecting a monument to the patriotism and loyalty of those who can speak of her with afifectionatc pride as our Alma Mater. DeRoy R. Fonvii.le, President Alumni Association. Christian Endeavor Cabinet. Christian Endeavor Society [XE of the glories and distinctions of the Christian Endeavor movement, is that it is a j ' oung people ' s society ; that it brings together young men and women in an equality of service. The society is built on the plan of the church, and in it we find a place where men and women must work to- gether for the advancement of the spiritual life. This society has meant a great deal to the spiritual life of the college — from the beginning it has had an active, vigorous life. Under the present administration it has done especially good work. There is no better test of genuine Christian character, than that of taking a courageous, outspoken, manly stand for Christ. A coward will rarely be " found among the active members of a Christian Endeavor Society. The willingness to stand up for Christ, and be counted on His side, is that true test. This has been manifested in the large, devout membership which our society has main- tained since its organization. In the State Union the influence of this society has been great for many years ; it has furnished officers, and its contributions and delegations to the meet- ings of the Union are always good. Each Sunday evening, very helpful and uplifting meetings have been held. A large number of our members have become " Quiet Hour Comrades " ; thereby pledging themselves to spend a definite length of time each day in reading the Bible and in prayer. During our revival which was held in February, the Endeavorers took an active part, holding a prayer meeting just before the regular service each evening. This, we believe, resulted in much good. The Junior Society which was organized in the early history of the Chris- tian Endeavor, has proven an active auxiliary to the Senior Society. There are many ways in which we can show heroism. There are few demands for martyrs. Rut there are moral tests which prove the stuff of which men and women are made, and the Christian Endeavor Societ - furnishes one of these tests. OFFICERS F. F.

IE Young Men ' s Christian Association is playing an important part in the Hves of college men today. We find numerous evidences of it everywhere we go — especially among our insti- tutions. In the early history of our association, the need of such a work as this organization affords did not loom up so highly in the minds of the students as it does today. Xot because they could not see the need, but because conditions then were ditTerent from what they are now. The Young Men ' s Christian .Association stands for the development of spirit, mind, and body. And never before in the history of our country was there a better opportunity for Christian men to do service along this line. The students of our institution are becoming wide awake to this fact and throwing themselves into Y. M. C. A. work here in order that they may be able to meet the responsibilities of the future. Such interest as has been manifested in our association here this year has never been manifested before. Our membership has increased 50 per cent, over that of last year : our attendance has been 50 per cent, better than that of last year ' or of the preceding years. This year we sent eleven men to represent our association in the State Conference held at Trinity College, Durham, X. C. Those who went were: W. T. Scarboro, ' illie Purcell, M. S. Revell, J. H. Fleming. C. B. Riddle, F. M. Aycock. J. L. Farmer, J. L. Xorfleet. V. 1 ' ,. Fuller, S. S. Myrick, and F. F. Myrick. We are planning now to land a large delegation at Black Mountain next June for the Summer Conference. The officers for the coming year have been elected, and they are now ])lanning to make it the greatest year in the history of our association. Surely they will make it so. We hope for it to be their gain. Y, W. C, A, I ERE- are no better means by which college girls can get better acquainted, and drawn closer together, than through religious organizations. The Y. W. C. A. of Elon College is a medium through which the realness of the girls is ascertained. By attending its meetings it is easy to discern those who will make good in life after the college days are over by the part they take ; girls may reach girls by discussing together religious topics ; it is uplifting and inspirational. The first Saturday night after school opened every girl was invited to the Y. V. C. A. reception. . goodly number attended. The time was pleasantly spent in games, after which refreshments were served. Much life has been added to the society this year by the Dean of Women. She has taken a very active part, and has given beneficial talks in the meetings. The attendance has been good. Much better than unsual. On the third Sunday afternoon in January Dr. E. E. Randolph gave an interesting lecture to the society on " Broken Things in Life. " Dr. J. W. Harrell spoke to the society February 8, 1914 from 11 Cor. 5:14. This was enjoyed by all present, and much good derived therefrom. Misses Lillian Johnson and Bettie Ellis represented the society at the State Convention which met at Black Mountain, June 6-g, 1913. Misses Frankie McXeill and Beatrice Mason were delegates to the Student ' s Council which met at Releigh, Nov. 15-18, 1913. These delegates brought back helpful suggestions from each convention. The society has added much to the practical side of the college life this year. i .W. C.JL Ministerial Association FTER many years of thoughtful meditation and prayer many attempts were made to organize a permenent association for ministerial students. IJy Se])teniher. 1910, the need became so thnroughlv realized that a band of eighteen zealous, conse- crated young men formed the organization known as the ministerial association. The purpose of such organization is to promote a spirit of brotherly love among oung men and to aid them in public speaking. Previous to September, 1913, the association met every Wednesday evening for devotional service. Since that time there has been a change in the work. Manx ministerial students below the Junior class, desired to have more time for Bible study. On this account the ' ednesda - evening services were abandoned and classes formed that meet with some chosen professor as much as two periods a week. The calls and claims of a minister are greater and more urgent today than ever before. The tasks that lie before the rising ministry call for a well-developed intellect in order to assume such responsibilities as now devolve upon him. It is a call to stud - and diligence. " Study to show thyself approved unto God. a work- man that needeth not to be ashamed. " " Neglect not the gift that is in thee. " It is a call of usefulness and unselfishness, and involves untold sacrifices with numerous perils to every person engaged. The disciples were God-commissioned, but not without the most encouraging promises. " Ye shall receive power, ye shall be mv witnesses, both in Jerusalem — and to the uttermost parts of the earth. " Realizing the present demand of the preacher, the ministreial association, w ith its twenty-seven members, is endeavoring to meet the present demand so as to cause the work of the church to take on newness of life and become a channel through which much and permanent gooil can be accomplished.

The Athletic Association wishes to thank the good trustees for their liberal support they have given the association and the substantial rules they have made to govern inter-collegiate games. The Association is grateful to the . lumni Association for the wonderful gift to the college of the best Gymnasium in the south. We should and are showing our appreciation for the opportunity to train our bodies by the scores made in basketball with the colleges in Mrginia and Xorth Carolina. Elon ranks with the best institutions in the state and has practically won the championship of the state in basketball during the past season : winning from Wake Forest, who had three days before won from the L ' niversity of Xorth Carolina. Elon was tied with the l ' ni ersity. having won one game and lost one. The Association is stronger financially than ever before. Also stronger in material for the games than in previous years ; using only men who are required to take a full course and make a daily passing average on their work. In conduct a man can not represent the institution if he has as many as ten demerits against him. There has not been a single man disqualified who has made the team, on account of imsatisfactory grades or any defects in his conduct whatever. This shows the reader that men who are really men enter into college athletics and are doing solid work, contrary to the prevalent cnncejjtinii of an athlete in college. Elon is justly proud of her athletes.

' i;ST DuKMlTOKV ( l ' " (]U CilKI,: Faculty Meeting Feb. 31, 19J4 j i X this eventful occasion, the meetin " ; was called to order bv the President, Dr. William Allen Harper, in his usual pleasant manner. However, could he have been seen by others, as well as by that august assembly, who are accustomed to his ways, his appearance would have been that of one who inherits all rights and reservations of an intelligent bunch of co-eds through meekness and tranquility. The minutes of the last meeting were read by the Secretary, Dr. Thomas Cicero Amick, better known to the student-body, who so highly esteemed him, as " Uncle Tommy. " Some of the adjunct professors, feeling their importance ( ?) and being in rather a garrulous mood, tried to consume considerable time in discussing whether Mary Barbour should be put on probation for smiling at Prof. Kellum. Dr. Newman. Dean of the College, suddenly realizing that the temperature of the room was extremely low, throwing his overcoat around his shoulders, arose and made a motion that the minutes should be adopted without further discussion. The Dean of Women, Miss Uhquhart, in her sympathetic manner, and too, woman like — anxious to get in a word — thought it " very v ell " and proceeded to second the motion. This carried. Prof. Hook, being very conscious of his social duties, begged to be excused, in order that he might wend his way through the moonlight in the direction of Miss Irene ' s home. Now, this was Dr. Lawrence ' s chance, for he always has numerous petty offences to report. His counsel always holds good, and this time, he advised the Faculty to discontinue the social privileges of Ruth Aldridge and Marma- duke Woodward, thereby quelling for a time the rapid dart of Cupid ' s arrow. This being the first time in the records of his reports in that he faileil to conclude his remarks with a joke, this privilege was conferred upon Dr. E. E. Randolph, whose disposition on these occasions is always hilarious (?), even though he appears to the students as a scholar reserved, yet submissive. This sudden inspiration aroused the great philosophical musings of Dr. Wicker, thus recalling an ofifence which had for quite awhile aroused suspicions in the minds of the co-eds. The grave charge was none other than Mr. J. C. Poe being seen in serious consultation with Miss lone McCauley. At this mo- inent, Prof. Doak remarked that he had witnessed the same incident, but the said young lady being a resident of the village, and since they were merely arrang- ing for a love game (of tennis) — he thought no penalty should be imposed upon either party. Our beloved pastor. Dr. Atkinson, is always ready to lend his assistance in time of trouble, so he at once made a motion that this should not be dealt with. Prof. N. F. Brannock, who is famed for keeping the golden rule, instantly arose, with his eyes riveted on the floor, as was his custom, and de- clared a second to said motion. Listen! Suddenly approaching footstejis were lieard in tlie hall, a loud ra]jping sounded on the door. This was no sooner heard than the energetic little " Captain " Jorgenson responded to his duty with militant activity. To his utter astonishment, a host of the fair sex confronted him. These were recognized as being the lady-teachers and the matrons — Misses Wilson, Barnes. Davidson, and Clements — each came for the same just cause — declaring their resignation. unless new pianos were installed at once. This was agreed u])on, without any hesitancy whatever on the part of the assembly. Miss Long, whose love of nature, both artistic and huniau. has a great depth, thereby causing her to be anxious for the comfort of her friends, came for the purpose of ascertaining w ' hether the dynamo at the power house had really given out — this was rather an intricate aflfair, but our beloved pastor took upon himself the dutv of solving the " riddle " — he always helps the good cause along! ! ! ' Mrs. Holland, thinking this was her turn, tleclared that she didn ' t know what in the world was the matter with the girls, for they wouldn ' t ever be quiet during study-hour. Just then. Mrs. Lee expressed her perplexities — the boys were eating so much ; she simply could not understand, and wished some pre- ventative of enormous appetites might be discovered. At this moment, another hurried approach sounded in the hall, the stewardess, ] Irs. Roberts, and Annie Watson rushed in, bringing with them Messrs. Heatwole and Miller, against whom they rendered an accusation of visiting the pantry at an untimely hour. This being such a serious charge, the wise and level-headed faculty, after a prolonged argument, thought best to give a severe dose of de- merits f 25 ) as a probable cure for indigestion which was contracted by the in- truders while in the pantry. Patiently Mrs. Jones had been waiting to remove the cover from the immense basket which she bore on her arm. To the surprise of everyone, a delightful repast was spread before them, and it goes without saying, to all who know the domestic reputation of this good woman, that it was indeed appetizing: Prof. Daughtry. remembering that the libraian. Miss Fogleman. had con- sented to assist him in searching for references on the study of Mason (ry). made a motion for adjournment : no sooner said, than Prof. Campbell, who was restlessly awaiting the opportunity, begged to be allowed to second the same, so this distinguished body adjourned ; the Bursar wishing to demonstrate his gallantry by escorting one of the fair damsels to her studio, and declaiing it to be the most important and pleasant evening ever. So it goes down in history ! What Is In a Name Anyway? (A rose by any other name would smell as siveet). )L ' 1£N Morgan niein Frcund, 1 am a Farmer and I live in Hol- land. I haven ' t any Brothers so no one knows where I am at. I plough my old Gray though he is so Vera Gay, and my land is full of Stones. The sun I can Barrett, though sometimes it is hot as the Divil. I Love it very well. I raise Cotton (a) Roundtrees, and there is Cole on my land and if 1 was not lazy I Wood prosper, though now I am very Poe. The Parks on my land have the most delightful Walk(er)s. I was awakened one morning by the crowing of Aycock, and I took my Papa and the Black Boy to the Barber ' s and the Smiths and my little Pug fol- lowed all the way. His Keen barking sounded like a Horn(er) as the wind came from the West. Once I told a Riddle to my Neese on the Bank and she dropped her Hook into the water and went along to the Garrett in the Barn(es). There sat Aunt Sally Peel(ing) Apple(s). and I borrowed one to Tally with when her little Foster sonny Jack came crawling through a crack. She gave him a Rip(py) right on his Lips and he Fel(ton) down in the Hall.

Kissing A kiss is said to be an operation upon the lips for the relief of heart trouble, and a hug a thing of beauty entirely surrounded by a stretch of masculinity. It is a very interesting subject, and there are various forms which I will en- deavor to describe : ( I ) Kissing is a pleasure, a habit, an ecstacy, a duty, a sin, a crime, or any thing you want it to be, depending altogether on the circumstances. (2) Kissing a baby is about the sweetest kissing on earth, but it ' s mighty hard on the baby. He gets such a lot of it. Pretty girls kiss him ; married women kiss him; old bachelors kiss him, everybody ' s doing it. If he were big enough to assert himself, he would not stand for it, at least not all of it, anyway. But then if he were bigger, no one would want to kiss him. (3) Kissing a girl whose lips are like warm velvet, and whose cheeks are as soft as a dove ' s breasts, is about the " niftiest " thing in the world, except for the fact that no one gets to kiss such a girl but the raw fellows who have not even learned how to kiss the right way. (4) Kissing one ' s wife is about as near perfect enjoyment as mere man need ever hope for, but it is a custom not universally followed. Some men kiss other fellow ' s wives. The man who does not kiss his wife ten times a day is a big fool ; likewise the woman who does not want to be kissed ten times a day is ditto, but if the old man keeps a quid of cut plug in his jaw, the wife who stands for ten kisses a day deserves a halo and a cushioned seat alongside of Job in the new Jerusalem. (5) There are many ways of kissing. A little baby just opens its mouth and slobbers ; a coy maid shuts her eyes and lips tight and lets someone else do . the kissing ; an old maid ties up her lips into a hard knot and pecks away at the victim like a woodpecker : an old bachelor puckers up his lips and smacks like the dredge of a steam shovel.

Chief Fuller be at Elon College. Last Will and Testament We, the Class ' 14, beiiis ' snuiid both mentally and physically, declare this to be our last will and testament. We have always been accused of possessing unselfish dispositions — always thoughtful of the pleasure and comfort of others, so with this in mind, our boys bequeath their overcoats to Dr. Newman. To the Junior Boys, Marvin Revell bestows that art which lias for so long a time been the envy of other classes — his power of oratory. While his pen- manship falls into the hand of Dr. Harper, feeling sure that the same will be useful, as well as appreciated. We find that love of nature has a wonderful growth in our midst. Last year it was " edifying, " this year " admiring " — so to Miss Houchins goes the hand-painted picture, which was the just inheritance of F. F Myrick from the Art Class ' 13. But while the love of nature deepens, vanity is playing its part, therefore Xina Pinnix, through her kindness and generosity, wills Mr. Grover B. Harris a sufficient amount of talcum powder to carry him through College ; while Lillian Johnson, who always has a supply of paint on hand (cheek), wishes to leave it with Mr. ISarbee, at the same time hoping he will be benefited by its applications. The " derby. " which has so faithfully served C, W. Roundtree for lo these many years, and carries with it a knowledge of German, will be left to A. E. Gibson, in order that it may retain the study, and at the same time protect that particular head. The dignity of the class, borne so nobly and becomingly by ' iola Rollings, is bestowed upon Dennis Fleet Parsons, who is seemingly lacking in this par- ticular characteristic, and when once assumed, we trust he will retain it through his entire career. Urquhart Newman — better known to us as " Dummy " — who cannot be ex- celled as an athlete, wills his skill to Emory Beale, and we hope he will enjoy his new field of work. To John Farmer, who expects some day to become a champion ball-player, Jack Johnson wills his basket-ball. Although much worn, it bears the power of attaining the good for which John is striving. The power of speech is also characterized in Jack ' s nature, so to Fay Henly he wishes to bequeath his lo- quacity, and hopes she will soon cultivate as eloquent flow of language. To our minds, one requires more exercise than can be attained from ivcal gymnastics; therefore to ] Iarmaduke Woodward is bequeathed the " t w;; " suit of J. F. Morgan. For four years, era Gay has preserved the History notes over which she spent many laboriovis hours, and as she finishes her course these valuable note- books are left to Mr. Heatwole, hoping they will be a means of economizing his time. It is with threat pleasure that Kmnia llollaml wills her " math " books and all helps connected therewith, to " Chief " Fuller, who has labored under this strain through time immemoral. an l wc sincerely .hope his burden will be con- siderably lightened. There is always a very present help in the time of trouble, so llettie Ellis wishes to bequeath the epistles of Paul to Cornelia Rutherford, who wilingly receives them thinking perhaps she will find some consolation therefrom. Grace Rollings, having enjoyed to a great extent her ability both for writing and singing, bequeaths her pen and voice to Frankie McNeill, in order that she may never hereafter a borrower or lender be. Sallie Foster, famed for her art of Expression, wishes tii will this talent coupled with that of inqiiisitivciicss, to Wilile Cotton, hoping he will receive some information in applying it to the social side of life. Gilmer Holland, the member who devotes his time to good reading and eating, donates his numerous books and magazines to Dr. Lawrence ; and his enormous appetite is added to that of Sterling Love. To the tranquil, good-natured Dr. Randoljih. Ethel Barrett bequeaths her spasmodic disposition, hoping it will cause his life to be filled with vivacity. To the Freshmen, w e will our diplomas from the school of hardships. To the Sophomores, we wish to give our blue sweaters. To the Juniors, we will our pirvileges and our beloved sponsor. To the faculty, who has ever been so kind toward us. we bequeath our sincere gratitude, joy. health, and happiness. To the " Hill " we bequeath a grove of maples, planted with many fond memories. President W. A. 1 Iakpkk, LL. D.. Lit. D. College Patriotism iJERE is a College patriotism. Every true-hearted man, every noble-hearted woman, who has felt the influence, imbibed the spirit, of a College, feels it and understands it, and counts it as a priceless possession. What is this patriotism and whence does it originate? To define College patriotism it will be well to consider other kinds of patriotism. National patriotism, the kind we readily think of when we mention patriotism, is the passion a citizen feels for the land that gave him birth and has since given him shelter and security of life. It is love of country and the flag, a passion which impells one to serve one ' s country, either in defending her from invasion, or protecting her rights, or maintaining her laws and institutions in vigor and purity. This noble sentiment, the eternal and necessary characteristic of a good citizen, is the noblest passion that animates a man in his civic capacity. In times of war and national danger it strews the battlefields with the mutilated corpses of those in whose breasts it wells up. In times of peace it begets a lively interest in all that looks to national prosperity and progress ; it insures democracy and crowns liberty. That coun- try is safe whose sovereign integrity is insured by patriotic citizens. There is further a patriotism of the home, and another of the church, and others in varid spheres of life. We sometimes call these by different names. Patriotism in the home, for example, is family pride ; that in the church is church loyalty — but what ' s in a name ? The sentiment that prompts family pride, church loyalty, veneration for the Alma Alater, and national patriotism is at basis one and the same. The same love, directed toward the state, gives national patriot- ism ; toward the church, church loyalty ; toward the family, family pride ; toward the College, veneration for the Alma Mater, what this article designates as Col- lege Patriotism. It is therefore clear that College patriotism, similar to the love of a citizen for his country, of a Christian for his church, of a son for his mother, is the passion of a student in College for his Alma Mater. This is a noble passion — prompting men to do their best as students and to succeed most as graduates or as one of those who dropped out — a passion that impels them to advance the in- terest of the institution that gave them intellectual birth — the noblest passion that stirs the heart and fires the brain of man in his intellectual capacity. But it is not enough to define these passions, or rather to follow out the ramifications of the same fundamental passion in all the spheres of human activity. We must know their origin to appreciate them fully. The basis upon which they rest, for we can never be said to know a thing until we know its history, its origin, the tcnniinis a quo. Whence then the origin of these various kinds of patriotism? They are one and all grounded on gratitude — a passion than which there is none more beautiful — than the lack of which nothing renders more odious and contemptible. Gratitude is the basis of all patriotism, whether it be national, of the home, of the church, of the College — gratitude for service rendered for which the mind feels tliere is no adequate compensation on the part of the recip- ient. Why do you love your native land? Because she has given you birth and guaranteed to you personal security and happiness — things which by your own efforts you could never acquire for yourself. Here is an occasion for gratitude — • and gratitude when it has brought forth gives rise to patriotism. Why do you love home, have family pride? It is because you feel gratitude to your parents for the sacrifices they have made for you — sacrifices which you can never repay. Why do you love the church? Because of the gratitude you feel for the " peace that passeth all understanding " in this life and the assurance she vouchafes you of eternal happiness in the life to come. Why do you love your Alma Mater? Because by her efforts, all unremunerated by you. she has made the world over again for you, broadened the horizon of your vision, deepened the penetration of your insight — constituted you a new creature. Gratitude is at the base of patriotism of whatsoever sort — patriotism is gratitud e in the fruitage. There is a vast difference between the timid, bashful, hesitating Freshman and the same man who four years thereafter receives a diploma and with confi- dence of added powers and the inspiration of a larger vision leaves behind him the sacred walls of Alma Mater and goes forth to do his part of the world ' s work. He is become a new man and the College has made him so. The study of history has taught him the philosophy of progress ; the Social Sciences have taught him the principles of elevating the race ; through the department of English he has been brought face to face with great characters in all circumstances and conditions of life: mathematics has rendered him exact and painstaking: Latin and Greek have introduced him to the life and civilization of peoples other than his own and far different from his own, and so broadened his sympathies and developed him culturally : philosophy has revealed to him the laws of himself — the mental ma- chine : physical science has enabled him, as Kepler so grandly put it, to think God ' s thoughts after him in the creation and maintenance of the universe : the scientific study of Holy Writ has deepened and strengthened his spiritual life, giving him a sane philosophy of existence and an accurate understanding of divinity and of things divine. With larger vision, with broader horizon, with deeper insight, with clearer foresight, the College graduate is become a new creature — has been transformed — and that, too, within the four years of his College course. This makes him grateful to the foster mother that travailed in his intellectual birth. The true Colege-bred man. that man who rings clear, feels grateful to his Alma Mater just as he feels grateful to his mother, and as he loves his mother so will he love his foster mother, his Alma Mater. The man who goes through a College and does not love her is a false man — a man the world could well do without — a dishonor to himself and to his Alma Mater. An ingrate is the type of man to be avoided whether he be in the home, in the church, in the College, or in the state. He is not a fit companion — his association defiles — his influence is venomous to the nobler sentiments and higher aspirations of heart and life. The true man, the noble woman, is grateful — grateful for favors shown and kind- nesses received at the hands of others, be they personal or instituional. The College man is a patriot toward his Alma Mater, if he is a true man, not only because she has made him a new man and refashioned the universe for his benefit, but because he feels that he has received these things at a discount and that he can never fully pay for them. His tuition (which was all he paid the College for her oversight and guidance ( for four years was only $200 — less than it costs to take a trip across the ocean and spend a month. And yet for four years he has had expert guides in all parts of the world and down into the bowels of the earth and among the lucid stars. He has viewed life, civilization and the world under the microscope with a director always at hand to point the explanations his soul was yearning to receive. And during these four years of travel and study he has paid for this expert assistance only $200 — he feels the smallness of the cost — he realizes the inability to repay fully — he feels grateful — grateful to the guides of these years — his faithful, scholarly teachers; grateful to the institution that secured the services and guaranteed the trustworthiness of these guides — grateful to his Alma Mater. Daniel Webster breathed the true spirit of College patriotism — felt this grati- tude — when he made that famous speech before the L ' . S. Supreme Court in de- fense of Dartmouth College,. his Alma Mater. Dartmouth College was chartered by the State of New Hampshire with a duly constituted board of trustees or visitors. The legislature decided to make it a so-called University and without the consent of its corporation proceeded to alter its charter accordingly. The corporation appealed and the case went up before the Supreme Court of the U. S., with Mr. Webster defending the College and another alumnus of the same institution as attorney for the State of New Hampshire. In the midst of the mas- terful speech which he delivered upon that occasion, Mr. Webster, with much emotion disclaiming any ambition on his part to see Darthouth become a Uni- versity, realizing as he did the superior worth of the small College in the proper training of youth, said : " It is true it is a small College, but there are those who love it. " Here, overcome with emotion, the great orator wept, nor was there a dry eye in that august court-room, when, regaining control of himself, he con- tinued : " Sirs, I love Dartmouth College, and when her integrity is at stake, when her ancient charter is to be amended against her will, I am the last man in the world to give assent ; I would rather die, sirs, than have her say to me, ' et tit, mi filL ' " There are tens of thousands of men and women who feel towards their Alma Maters just as Mr. Webster did — and they are the salt of the earth — they are the men and the women who will carry forward the banner of progress. They are the men and the women who are the light of the world. Through men and women animated with such passions our liberties were achieved and through them they are to be preserved. Our Colleges need fear no evil while such men and women live. In the hands of such men and women the home, the College, the church, the state — humanitv ' s every interest is safe. pf W ' TipSIr i ' - i ' " ' ' ■- n .:-4« " ' :: Mm - ' :yaaM W ' mv iaf.r% m i f . ' ' JL .S ' ■ i Board of Managers and Editors. A Note by the Manager OR the last few months at hours when very vahiable time was swiftly passing, which was thought to have been needed on other work, the manager together with his associates have been studying and planning the make-up of this little volume which you now hold in your hand for criticism. In all probability it may not be made up so well as you could luake it. but we believe that it is as good as circumstances would permit under which we have had to labor. However we wish to express to you our thanks for the hearty co-operation you, as a friend of ours, have given us. Had it not been for vour assistance, our work would have been in vain. This Annual in connection with the different phases representing our college life, carries a list of advertisers which the manager has carefully selected. I would recommend them to you as being worthy of your patronage. When in need of anything in their line, call upon them and thev will treat vou right. The Editor ' s Note ]( ) YOU, gentle readers of the PiiirsiCLi, known and yet un- known, we present the second volume of the Phipsicli for your criticism. And too. as a reminder of a glad and happy year of college and student life of the year 1914. The purpose of this Annual, as we understand it, is to give us a not too serious (hence the fiction) and rather general, impressionistic (hence the pictures) sketch of a year of college and student life.. The editor, together with his associates, wishes to thank every contributor and helper in the making up of this book. The task has been indeed hard, but with your help you have made our burdens much lighter. The work has been pleasant, though it has often seemed otherwise. We feel indebted to the different members of the faculty, who have shown their willingness to show us to the best of their ability the right way to make up this book, so as to make it the more interesting. And, too, to the manager and his associates. We have labored and toiled, day and night, trying to make our grades on our literary subjects while we were at work on this book. And so, dear readers, if you have any criticism you wish to make, please remember that this is our first venture into the fields of journalism, and that we have given you the best we possess. Therefore we trust, that while we realize that this Annual could be better, we rejoice in the fact that we have done our work the best we knew, you will be lenient, and before crticising us, place yourself in our {X)sition. 00000 Jth ' Vll f I fj f , 7 Authorized the erection of this rJP nil t tl PVfl house.
