Histor of Franklin College

who wanted to do something out of the
ordinary-no odds what. But it was
born in the hearts of some strong men of profound
convictions as to the value and necessity of higher education in
the interest of Christian religion. It was a heroic undertaking
for there was little wealth in the State at that time and a sad
lack of general appreciation of liberal culture. The College
began as a Manual Labor Institute, as did many of the other
colleges of the westg the name was changed to Franklin Col-
lege in 1844 and a college charter obtained from the State
Legislature. Rev. George C. Chandler, a graduate of Madison
University and Newton Theological Seminary. was the iirst
President. He bravely led the work till 1851 when he heard
the call to the far west. During his administration the old
north brick edifice CChandler Hallj was erected, a small
collection of books and physical apparatus was made and
seven young men were graduated.
In 1852 the Rev. Silas Bailey, D. D., then President at
Granville College, Ohio, was called to the Presidency, and
accepted the call. With him were associated some strong men
in the Faculty as Professor Mark Bailey in the chair of
mathematics. Professor J. S. Hougham in the chair of chem-
istry and physics. and Professor J. Brumback in the chair of
ancient languages. President Bailey was a strong man and was
admired and loved by the students and all others who
were fortunate enough to become acquainted with him. Dur-
ing his administration the south brick edifice CBailey l-lalll
was erected and there were dormitory accommodations for
seventy-five or eighty young men. A better equipment in
chemistry and physics was secured. a small endowment was
collected, and twenty-one young men were graduated during
his Presidency. Ill health compelled him to resign after ten
years of service: and as the civil war was on, and nearly all
the young men were at the front in the l'nion 2ll'll1lCS,fl1G Col-
lege was obliged to suspend operations. Not again until 1869
did the college Board feel authorized to again open the doors:
the venture was so successful that in 1870 the Rev. H. L. Vlay-
land, D. D., of Kalamazoo College, Michigan. was elected to the
Presidency. Matters opened hopefully but soon it was seen
that the expenses were outruiming the income: a bold attempt
was made to remedy the situation by raising an endowment
of flS100,000 within a short time, but the attempt failed and
the only alternative was to again suspend operations-but
happily not for a very long time. The citizens of Franklin,
and Johnson County led in forming a stock association with

THE FIRST BUILDING
CHANDLER AND BAILEY HALLS
350,000 subscribed, so that in the fall of 1872 the Rev. W. T.
Stott, D. D., who was at the time a Professor in Kalamazoo
College, was elected President, and with him as members of
the Faculty were Professor R. J. Thompson and Professor J.
E. W3ltG1'. There was little money' and few students, and
sometimes a feeling of lonesomeness would really pervade the
chapel and halls. But there was courage, and patience and
perseverance pervaded the enterprise, and so the college grew
year by year till it conquered the respect and gained the love
of a large circle of friends. During President Stott 's adminis-
tration the central building CStott Hallj was completed, many
valuable improvements were made in the buildings Qlargely
through the co-operation of Mr. A. A. Barnes, of Indianapolis,
and Mr. Grafton Johnson, of Greenwoodj, an excellent library
building was erected fthe means being furnished mainly by
the E. H. Shirk family, of Peruj, three hundred and sixty-six
young men and women were graduated, and at the end of his
service of thirty-three years as President he was able to turn
over to his successor total assets to the amount of SlS450,000.
In June, 1905, Professor E. B. Bryan, LL. D., of Indiana
University, was elected President, and his administration has
already witnessed important steps in advance. Possibly the
most important was the change in the form of organization of
the college, the weaknesses of the stock association idea were
plain to be seeng stockholders were dying and making no dis-
position of their stock, and the time would naturally soon
come when there would be no stable foundation around which
to rally the interest and beneficence of the denomination.
Accordingly, after much thought and exchange of opinion,
it was decided to attempt the organization of a self-perpetuat-
ing Board of twenty-four representative men to which should
be transferred all the assets of the institution, and which
would be held responsible for the maintenance and develop-
ment of the College. lt was a measure that required much of
wisdom and patience, and it was consummated, not only with-
out opposition, but with the hearty approval of all concerned.
Another step in advance is the erection of three buildings
on the campus-a young women 's Dormitory, a Gymnasium,
and a central heating plant. The Dormitory is modern
throughout and will accommodate one hundred young women.
The Gymnasium is large and well planned, and has some fea-
tures not found in any other in the State, the heating plant
fthe gift of citizens of Franklin and vicinityD is ample for
heating all the present and prospective buildings on the
campus. The whole outlook of the college, now in the seventy-
fourth year after its founding, is one of hope for larger things.

iwf lg style of architecture which gives the design-
: v-'RV I ,. E - - -
i fir' 1 er more latitude than a classic design, and
appearance. In its interior it has been arranged so that in
reality it has been divided into three sections, which are sepa-
rated from each other by brick walls and fire doors, thereby
protecting each section against the other in case of iire. Each
section has its own stairway and exit. The only fire in the
building is in the range, and a small stove in the laundry, as
the building is heated from the central plant, thereby re-
ducing the chances of fire to a minimum. The Dormitory is
lighted by electricity with gas emergency. The architects are
Messrs. Dunlap and Glossop, of Indianapolis, Ind.
The main entrance is upon South Edwards Street, and
opens directly into a spacious corridor, stairway, and general
reception room. These form the principal feature of the
building, and make a very attractive assembly room with
large columns, fireplace, seats, bookcases and console. Directly
opposite the assembly room on the 'main corridor, and on each
side of the main entrance are the parlors and Matron's rooms,
the main corridor forming a vista through the entire length
of the building. In each end on each floor are two bath and
toilet rooms, arranged so that the girls in the different sections
will have their respective bath and toilet accommodations-
these are located centrally to all rooms.
The bedrooms are arranged to accommodate the various
desires of the different girls, for the rooms can be arranged
"en suite" with study, or single rooms with study, or single
rooms for one or two girls, each room having a large window,
and one or two large closets, according to the size of the room.
In the basement, which is mostly above the ground, are the
dining room, kitchen, serving rooms, cold storage, bakery,
vegetable room, and laundry-which has stationary wash tubs,
clothes dryer, stove, and large working space.
The Sororities of the College have attractive quarters on
the second floor. The building is generously equipped
throughout with all necessary furnishings, beauty as well as
utility, being considered everywhere. To the girls, the Dormi-
tory seems a large, convenient home with little more to be
desired. The spirit of harmony and good-will is marked,
while the freedom from undue restraint makes misconduct
unthought of. Ii. F. F.

The New Gymnasium
P - .HE Gymnasium is situated on the south side
of the campus, about equidistant from the
east and west boundaries. It is a red brick
structure one hundred and Hfteen feet in
length by sixty-six feet in Width. 'The
3 brick walls at either end are capped with
limestone and rise above the roof, which
may be called a self-supporting, 'chip-roof,'l with the steep
sides slated and the top metallic. There are three large en-
trances. The one on the south faces Franklin Field, and
above it is cut in the stone panel the word HGymnasium."
The end entrances are wide and above the doors are a series
of windows, and above these, at both ends, is a slab of white
stone, upon the one at the west end are the words "Recreation
Hall," and upon the one at the east '4Physical Culture. " On
the north are seven large, double windows, extending well up
to where the roof extends over the side walls of the building,
on the south are six windows of the same dimensions-three
on each side of the entrance. All the windows are glazed and
afford ample light. They are covered in the interior with
heavy, adjustable screens. As before stated, the roof is Hself-
supporting," and the interior is one immense room, making
an ideal place for basket ball, indoor base ball, and all indoor
athletics and gymnasium work.
At both corners of the east end is a circular iron stairway
that leads into the dressing-rooms, for both women and men,
in each of which are one hundred ventilated lockers. In rooms
adjoining the dressing-rooms are the the shower baths. Be-
yond these is the swimming pool-fifty feet in length and
twenty-five feet in width, ten feet deep at the south end and
four feet at the north.
The building is lighted throughout with electricity,
heated by steam and supplied with both hot and cold water.
The main room is ventilated by three ventilators at the apex
of the roof, and is to he furnished with up-to-date apparatus.
As a whole, the new Gymnasium is an artistic structure and
adds greatly to the beauty of the campus, as well as being a
much needed and appreciated addition to the equipment of
THE GYM NASIUM
The Heating Plant
ins. ,,.w, IRECTLY east of the Library and situated
in a central position in relation to the other
buildings, is the heating plant. It is a low
'ff 'RE KI' brick building sixty feet in length and
thirty feet in width. At the east end of
XL. ? the building is the stack-self-supporting,
and ninety feet in height. The entrance is
at the west end and opens directly into the dynamo-room.
From the southeast corner of this room a flight of steps de-
scends into the boiler-room, which is twelve feet below the
surface. By this arrangement the tops of the coal-bins are
on a level with the surface, while their Hoors are on a level
with the floor of the boiler-room, making both the unloading
and disposition of the coal convenient and labor-saving.
As far up as the surface the walls of the boiler-room are
cement. In the east end are two large one-hundred-horse-
power boilers, which are of the horizontal tubular type, seven-
teen and one-fourth feet in length, sixty-six inches in diameter,
and constructed of steel three-eighths inch in thickness.
They have the usual setting of cement and brick, and are
four feet above the grates, thus causing the bulk of the smoke
to be consumed.
The Van Auken system of heating is used in the Dormi-
tory and Gymnasium, and the XVebster system is used in the
Main Building and Library. The pressure on the heating line
is kept below two pounds by a regulating valve, and to avoid
the possibility of excessive pressure, an exhaust valve is also
attached to the low pressure line. As the steam passes through
the radiators it is condensed, and then, by means of a Burn-
ham vacuum pump, it is forced back into a receiving tank.
This pump is situated in the west end of the boiler-room, and
above it is the receiving tank, which has a capacity of one
hundred and fifty gallons. By the side of the vacuum pump
is a. small boiler-feeding pump, which forces the water again
into the boilers, and as the water having completed its circuit
is still hot, and as only about one-half a barrel is lost per week
from exhaust, the heating is conducted upon an economical
basis. FRED SMITH, '12.

ELMER BURRITT BRYAN. LL. D.
The Professor of Philosophy and Education
-- LMER BURITT BRYAN was born in Van
3 VVert, Ohio, April 23, 1865. His boyhood,
it y ,. . . . . -
.I , L IV ike that of many influential men, was spent
'4'-ig in the country, at work upon the farm. He
gg began his higher education in the Kokomo
I?-f?'li High School and in 1883 entered the Indi-
ana State Normal, from which he graduated
in 1889. On the day of his graduation from the Normal
School, he married Margaret L. Scott. Later he entered Indi-
ana. University, where he finished his course in 1893. The
following school term, Kokomo claimed him as her own, and
Doctor Bryan became her High School Principal. But he
was destined for larger things. For the next two years he was
a member of the Faculty of the Indianapolis Manual Training
High School. Butler College offered him something better
and, in 1896, he became the head of its department of social
and educational science. The following year he was appointed
Assistant Professor of Pedagogy in Indiana U niversity. Two
years later he was made Associate Professor of the same de-
partment. Not satisfied with his store of knowledge and expe-
rience, he spent the years of 1898-1900 as a graduate student
at Harvard and Clark Universities. The United States gov-
ermnent recognized his exceptional ability in school organiza-
tion and management, and, in 1901, he was invited by the
government to organize a system of Normal Schools and to
serve as Principal of the Insular Normal School at hIa1iil.a1..f1'W'2Q Although this is only Doctor Bryan's third year as our
He organized five of these schools and was soon advanced to
the position of General Superintendent of the Philippine
School System. Because of ill health he returned to the
United States and, in 1903-1005, was in charge of the depart-
ment of education and social psychology in Indiana Univer-
sity. At this time he was urgently called to the Presidency
of Franklin College, and, on January 10, 1905, the old col-
lege bell on the hill rang forth the joyful news of his accept-
Dr. Bryan is well known as an educator and Widely
sought for to lecture before teachers throughout the United
States. He has served as President of the Southern Indiana
Teachers' Association and is now President of the Indiana
Teachers' Association. He is a prominent lecturer before
Chautauquas, and a contributor to numerous educational mag-
azines. His recent book, 'tThe Basis of Practical Teaching,"
is used as the authorized institute book for the teachers in
the States of California, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Kansas,
Missouri, Vifashington and in numerous Normal Schools.
President, he has endeared himself to all his students. I-Ie
is never too busy to stop for a kind Word, a friendly grasp
of the hand, or lengthy counsel. He is willing to hear the
smallest difficulties of each student and cheerfully considers
with them the pros and cons of any question, It is a pleasure
to him to have his students come to him for a heart to heart
ta.lk. In college sports his enthusiasm runs high, and his
presence on the athletic field inspires the contestants to do
their best. His child-like faith in God and his earnest chris-
tian life deeply impress every individual member of the
student-body. His great desire to put first things first stands
out as an incentive to all. With such a leader it is easy to
predict the future of Franklin College.
The purpose of the department of Philosophy is to pre-
pare the students for actual life. No subject is more vital or
means more to a student in a practical way, than does the
work in this department. Doctor Bryan's own rich expe-
rience and splendid teaching ability enable him to make the
study a living reality to the student.
The Department of Greek.
OLUMBUS H. HALL, A. M., B. D., D. D.,
was born in Chili, Ind., November 17, 1846.
He obtained his early education in the vil-
lage schools of Chili and in the Peru High
School, In the Fall of 1866 he entered La-
doga Seminary and the next year came to
Franklin College, where he remained until
the middle of his Senior year, 1872, when the college was sus-
pended, He at once entered Chicago University where he
graduated the following June. NVithout intermission he con-
tinued his studies at the Baptist Union Theological Seminary
of Chicago, from which he graduated in 1875, That same
year he received the degree of A. M. from the University of
Chicago and from Franklin College. In 1874 he was
ordained to the ministry, but in 1875, while not forsaking his
profession as a minister of the Gospel, he accepted a profes-
sorship in Franklin College, which position he has held for
thirty-three years. In addition to his college duties, Doctor
Hall has been for twenty-eight years pastor of the East Hur-
ricane Baptist Church. In June, 1875, Professor Hall was
married to Miss Theodosia Parks. He was made Vice-Presi-
dent of our College in 1885. The year of 1894 Professor
Hall spent in European and Oriental travel.
The study of the Greek language and literature is one of
the best disciplines for the mind in all the college course.
One of our prominent educators has said that no one can lay
claim to any degree of culture who has not a comprehensive
knowledge of Greek. Although all will not admit that this
study is a necessity, yet no one can deny that, as a purely
cultural study, Greek has no superior. A country 's literature
inevitably takes on the characteristics of the people. In the
realm of art, Greece stands without a peer, so to study the
Hellenic language is to study the most expressive, the most
exact and the most artistic language that the world has ever
known. Professor Hall knows well how to impart to his
students his own appreciation of the inspiration, beauty and
freshness of the Greek. He inspires all those with whom he
comes in close contact, with the thought that this world and its
stores of knowledge open only to those who apply the key of
energy. Doctor Hall's own vigorous methods of study and
teaching draw from the student the very best that is in him.
His active support of all phases of college life extend from
the chapel to the athletic field. Professor Hall is a member
of the Lyceum and of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.
COLUMBUS H. HALL, A. M.. D. D
The Professor of Greek.
The Department of Latin
f- A HE knowledge of Latin is essential to a lib-
eral education. Those who deprecate it can
scarcely understand much of the language.
Whoever believes in hard work will soon
discover in the study of Latin that which
5 will result in permanent good to the
student. The study of it is indispensable
to the professional class and is beneficial to all.
Professor F. W. Brown, A. M., Ph. D., is a native of
Ohio. He received his education in the schools of Indiana
and in Franklin College. The chief work of Professor
Brown's life has been that of teaching, he has occupied the
principalship of some of the important institutions of higher
learning in Indiana and Kentucky. In 1867 he was elected by
the Board of Franklin College to the chair of Languages,
but after several years of successful service in this position,
failing health made it necessary for him to cease teaching for
a time. In 1887 he accepted a unanimous call to the chair of
Latin in the same institution, and since that time, for twenty-
one years, he has given his entire time and strength to this
department of college work. Several offers of higher posi-
tions in the educational field have been declined because of
his deep interest in the study and teaching of language. Over
thirty years of earnest labor in the field of language have
made him not only master of his line, but thoroughly conver-
sant with many kindred subjects. For many years he has
been a member of the American Philological Association. Pro-
fessor Brown quickly wins the love of his students and of all
who, in any way, come into contact with him. The quiet un-
assuming christian graces are his companions. His broad and
far-reaching Christian influence can never be measured.
FRANCIS W. BROWN, A. M., Ph. D
The Professor of Latin
msv O other department in the College calls .forth
more mental activity and rigid discipline
than does the Department of Mathematics.
From a theoretical point of view, few sub-
jects give better mental training and more
useful drill, and from a practical point of
view, many fields are open only to the
mathematician. Modern Science and Mathematics walk hand
in hand, and since this age is growing more and more scien-
tific, the Held is doubly wide. Few students in this depart-
ment have much success unless they diligently apply them-
selves to rigid voluntary exertion and application, arid unless
they learn that patience and perseverance are the foundation
of skill. The plan of the recitation differs with the subjects
treated, and in many cases with individual students. But
whatever the plan used, clearness and accuracy of expression
are required. One of the laws of the department is, that all
must finally agree in Mathematics.
Professor Rebecca J. Thompson. head of this department,
was graduated from Shepardson College in 1867. During the
following year she taught at Shepardson, the next two years
she spent as a teacher in Greensburg High School, and then
two years were given to instructing in the Indianapolis Insti-
tute. In September, 1872, she was called by the Board of
Directors to a position in Franklin College, Besides being
actively engaged as a Professor of the Mathematical Depart-
ment since that time, Miss Thompson was College Librarian
for about twelve years. The department under her care has
always been thoroughly modern, for she is an active, progres-
sive student, interested in all that pertains to the advance-
ment of the College. She has the general welfare of the
students at heart.

vdmxida-qv ILLIAM HENRY ALLISON was born in
Somerville, Mass., August 17, 1870. His
1 parents moved shortly afterwards to Cam-
as bridge, where he was educated in the pub-
,ER ig lic schools, graduating from the Cambridge
Latin School in 1889. He then entered
Harvard College, where he received the de-
gree of A. B. in 1893. He graduated from the Newton Theo-
logical Institution in 1896, and in 1902 he received theldegrce
of B. D. from the same institution. Fourteen months of the
years 1896-7 he spent in studying in the Universities of Halle
and Berlin, and in travel on the continent and in Great
Britain. From March, 1899, to July, 1902, he was pastor of
the Penacook Baptist Church, of Concord, New Hampshire.
In September, 1899, he married Elizabeth L. Smith, a Vassar
graduate of 1895, who died July 14, 1900. In 1902 he was
appointed Fellow in Church History in the University of
Chicago, where he remained until he received the degree of
Ph. D. in 1905, with the exception of the year of 190-L-5, which
was spent as acting Professor of Church History and Chris-
tian Missions in the Pacific Theological Seminary, of Berke-
ley, Cal. In 1905 he was called to the professorship of His-
tory and Political Science in Franklin College. On July 31,
1905, he married Mary Emily Mills, of Chicago.
The Department of History is meritoriously a popular
one. To give the student a broad and comprehensive knowl-
edge of the entire scope of the world's history, and to lay the
foundations of accurate scholarship, are the two aims of this
department. There is nothing which broadens the mind more
than the proper study of History. The historical student
must, before long. discover that he must be a close student in
this department, for there is no place for shirks in Professor
Allison work. It would be hard to find a more competent
instructor in History and Political Science than Doctor Alli-
son. He makes large use of the lecture method in teaching,
while individual research and the personal examination of
original material are encouraged. Doctor Allison is at pres-
ent engaged in investigations for the Department of Histor-
ical Research of the Carnegie Institute, of Washington, D. C.,
and is also to be a contributor to the new edition of the Schaff-
Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge. He is a mein-
ber of the American Historical Association, the Religious Ed-
ucation Association and the Lyceum. The Current Events
Class which Doctor Allison is instructing has proved very
beneficial to the members. ,

THE ENGLISH RECITATION ROOM
i The Department of English
, f- A , HE English Department has two important
aims-first to develop the power of oral
and written expression of thought, and
second to acquaint the student with the best
English authors. To gain these ideas in
3 the English Department, the student must
come in personal contact with good litera-
ture under the guidance of a competent instructor. These
two requirements are fully met in the English Department of
Franklin College. The college library furnishes the required
material, and although this is Professor Belknap 's first year
at the head of the English Department, it has been an emi-
nently successful one in every way.
Arthur Train Belknap was born in Framingham, Mass.,
February 8, 1872. He graduated from the Framingham High
School in 1889. That same year found him a student in
Brown University, where he received the degree of A. B. in
1893. The next three years he studied in the Newton Theo-
logical Institution, where he graduated in 1896, and the same
year received the degree of A. M. upon examination at Brown
University, after special work in English and the Philosophy
of Religion. The summer of this year Professor Belknap
spent in Germany. From 1896-1898 he was pastor of the
First Baptist Church of Sanford, Mainei The winter of 1898
and 1899 hc studied Church History in the Divinity School
of Harvard University. Here the degree of B. D. was con-
ferred upon him. The following winter he was again in the
Newton Theological Institution as a graduate student. In
1900 Mr. Belknap was called to the pastorate of the First
Baptist Church in Andover, Mass., in which place he re-
mained until 1905. During this pastorate he was at various
times a special student in the Andover Theological Seminary
and the School of Expression at Boston. On January 1, 1902.
he was married to Miss Mary Emma Blaisdell, a graduate of
Colby College in the class of 1901. In 1905 he was called to
the pastorate of the Jefferson Street Baptist Church of Provi-
dence, R. I., where he was located when he was invited to the
chair of English in Franklin College. Professor Belknap is
a strong addition to our faculty and it is our hope that he
may remain long among us. He is a member of the Phi Beta
Kappa Fraternity and of the Lyceum.
The opportunity offered by Professor Belknap in his
class in Expression is appreciated by all who are taking the

graduated from the Franklin High School
s in May, 1883, with first honors. For the
next two years she taught in the schools
of Centralia, Ill., and then spent three
years teaching at home. Miss Zeppenfeld
attended Franklin College the next three years and received
her degree of B. S. in 1890, with mathematics for her major
She was called at once to the chair of Modern Languages
in Franklin College. During the following summer she
studied French in Indianapolis under a native French teacher.
In 1892 her alma mater conferred upon her the degree of
M. S. for graduate work in History and Italian. The summer
of that same year she studied in the Sauveur Summer School
of Languages at Exeter, New Hampshire, and was granted a
teacher's diploma in the German Department. The summer
of 1895, she travelled in Europe and took private Work in
French at Paris. Professor Zeppenfeld was granted leave
of absence from her college Work for the year 1901-1902. The
summer Was spent in European travel. Two semesters were
given to study in the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and
two months spent as a student in the University of Grenoble,
Professor Zeppenfeld became a member of the Pi Beta
Phi Fraternity while in college, and non' holds the position of
Historian in its national organization. She is also a member
of the Magazine Club, the Lyceum and an honorary member
of the Charlotte Emerson Club.
Miss Zeppenfeld has great natural ability as a teacher of
languages and is well fitted by experience and education for
her position. Her classes are all large and all five periods
taken. This speaks for her popularity. It has not been long
since the studies of German and French were mere electives
in our college curriculum, but now no student can graduate
without having done at least one year's work in German or
French. The main object of the department is to enable the
student to acquire facility in the translation of these languages
into idiomatic English. A second aim is to study prose compo-
sition and conversation. German is used so far as possible
in the class room. The work in this department is equal to
that of the larger schools and universities.

,-5. , ' AVID A. CVVEN first saw the light of day
in a log cabin in Greene County, Indiana,
on December 11, 1852. He followed the
'jf Wk? If usual routine of a farmer boy's life, plow-
ing corn in the summer and attending the
S- Nix! district school in the winter. He entered
Franklin College in 1873, and graduated in
1878 with the degree of A. B. The next year, 1878-1879, he
was Principal of the Salem High School, and in 1879 he was
elected tutor of Natural Science in Franklin College. This
position he held until 1881, when he became School Superin-
tendent of Johnson County. This same year his alma mater
conferred upon him the degree of A. M. In 1883 he was
elected Professor of Biology in Franklin College. Since that
time he has taken post-graduate work in the Marine Biological
Station at Woocls Holl, and at the University of Chicago.
The purpose of our department of Biology is to familiar-
ize the student with the things of nature which he beholds
around him on every side, to study the underlying laws of
their development, and to learn the relation which these hold
to Him who is their Author. It is not only to Nature but to
Nature's methods that the students, attention is constantly
directed, not to evolution merely as a plan, but as a purpose
The laboratories in which a part of this work is carried
on-for not a little is prosecuted in the field, Nature's own
laboratory-are well supplied with equipment for the work.
Much of the vexation resulting from ill-arranged accommoda--
tions is cheerfully endured in the hope of the realization of
a new Science Hall in the near future.
The ingenuity and ability of Professor Owen is manifest
by the series of charts, the work of his own hands, which he
uses in the department. Professor Owen is equaled by few in
his ability to arouse in his students a desire to know the whys
and wherefores of things, and to encourage original research
work. Ile is a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, of

,sw ELVIN ELLIOTT CROWELL was born on
a farm in the hill country of western New
York, near the little village of Belfast. His
early education was acquired in the coun-
try schools of his native State and his prep-
aration for college was obtained in the
Genesee Valley Seminary, Belfast. His
college work was done at the University of Rochester, where
he graduated with the degree of A. B. in 1879.
The next three years Professor Crowell taught Greek and
Science in Cook Academy at Havana, New York, and the
three years following, science alone in the same institution.
He spent the year 1885 as an honorary scholar in Pedagogy
at Johns Hopkins University. The next four years, Profes-
sor Crowell taught in Kansas. The first year he was con-
nected with a private school at Parsons, and the last three
was instructor in Latin and Chemistry at Lewis Academy in
Six years following were passed in teaching Physics at
the Shortridge High School, Indianapolis, from which posi-
tion he was elected to the chair of Chemistry and Physics at
Franklin College in 1899. Professor Crowell is an efficient
teacher. His genial and helpful attitude toward his students
has made his department very popular, and he is also a master
in his line. He is the inventor of the Crowell apparatus for
teaching Physics and the author of the Laboratory Manual
for the same. He has spent a great deal of time in making his
department more attractive and in adding to its apparatus,
so that now it is possible for his students to have the very
best opportunity, so far as apparatus is concerned, for doing
excellent work. Professor Crowell 's many disinterested ef-
forts for the general welfare of the College have been widely
recognized by the friends of the institution.
He is a member of the Delta Upsilon and the Phi Beta
Kappa Fraternities. The honorary degree of A. M. was
recently conferred upon him by Pe Pauw University.
The leading thought of this department is to give the
student the broadest and most bractical view of the field of
physical science. Its aim is to give the best course for the
student who will go directly into practical life, as well as to the
one who intends to pursue advanced work in higher inst.itu-
tions. The laboratories occupy six pleasant rooms on the
'Fourth floor of the central building.

'7 111 Jackson County in 1864. Her early lit-
Q H. '11 5 erary education was received in Hughes
' ' High sehooi in cincinnati, ohio. rings.
Bruner has made Music her chief work
- H " since the age of nine. The late Victor
Williaiiis, of Cincinnati, was her first in-
structor. She entered the Musical Department of our College
in 1890, and finished the course in two years. The next few
years she assisted Professor J. M. Dungan, then head of the
department, and in 1898 she was elected to the Professorship
of Piano in Franklin College. Mrs. Bruner has done post-
graduate work under Mr. Newton E. Swift, of the Boston
Conservatory, and under Miss Mary J. Vilight, who studied
in Europe under the celebrated Leschetizky. She is untiring
in her efforts of keeping the highest standards before her
pupils. Mrs. Bruner lives in her work, and her interest in
the students of this department reaches far beyond the re-
quired hour of the lesson.
Miss Jessie D. Lewis, the Professor of Vocal Music, is an
able instructor. For a number of years she studied under
Karl Schneider, and later continued her work in New York
City under Mr. Oscar Saenger. whose methods are so widely
known in America and Europe. Her teaching is based on the
methods of the Saenger School. Miss Lewis has done efficient
work in the training of the Glee Club. Her broad knowledge
of music and eliicient methods of teaching and directing are
veryfevident in the results of her work.
Our Music Department has two objects. First to estab-
lish a broad foundation for those who intend making music
a profession, and second to give a general knowledge of the
subject to those who may desire to make the study of music
supplenientary to regular college work. No department of the
College calls forth more activity of the mental faculties of the
student than does the work required of our music students.

The Department of Domestic Science
LTHCUGH Domestic Science is the most re-
cent addition to our curriculum, yet this
department is deservingly popular. The
principal object in this work is to make
more efficient cultured Women. Its aim is,
therefore, to better educate women through
the close application of the principles of
science, economics, and sociology to meet the practical prob-
lems of life. The Domestic Science Department gives one a
knowledge' of life, its laws and problems. It helps the student
to understand her position in life, and to realize her responsi-
bilities as an economic factor, both as a spender of money and
as a buyer in the markets of the World. It serves as an in-
centive to further study of home-making as a profession.
The course covers four years' Work. In the first year
the students not only study Chemistry of foods, but they must
successfully apply correct principles in actual cooking. The
Sophomore Work deals with the mechanics of house building
and the art of household decoration, including the visitation
of many city homes. In economics, the third year's work,
the student learns the worth of time, money and energy when
she goes marketing, plans her system of house work, investi-
gates actual household accounts and studies labor-saving ap-
pliances for the house. In sociology she considers the home
as a. social institution with all the responsibilities involved,
both within the family life, and outside in connection with
society, state and church. , ,
'We feel proud in having at the head of this important
department a Professor so competent and thoroughly pre-
pared. Miss Bertha Melville Miller graduated from the
Franklin High School in 1895, and from our College in 1900.
After teaching a year and a half, she entered the Domestic
Science Department of Columbia University, where she grad-
uated in 1905. The years 1906-1907 she spent in University
Extension work in Purdue University. In addition to her
work as a professor in the College, Professor Miller lectures
frequently before 1Vomans' Clubs, Teachers' and Fm-mei-S'
Institutes and Chautauquas. Her ability .has given her a
place before the public as a popular lecturer, Miss Miller 's
special course for the Normal students this Spring is very
beneficial to them. Professor Miller is a member of the Pi
Beta Phi Fraternity.

WILLIAM H. MQCCY
LLIAM H. MGCCY, for many years super-
intendent of the buildings and grounds of
Franklin College, was born in Clark Coun-
ty in April, 1836. He inherited his loyalty
for the "college on the hill" from the pa-
terna.l side. His grandfather, John McCoy,
was among those who established the Col-
lege in 1834, and for twenty-five years served as one of the
Directors, travelling at times one hundred miles or more on
horseback to attend the Board meetings. His father was also
a strong supporter of Franklin College.
Mr. McCoy 's first gift to the College was made when he
was eight years old, he gave all he possessed-a twelve-and-a-
half cent piece. Mr. McCoy graduated in the noted class of
1861. The next year he was principal of the Seymour Public
Schools. In the Spring and Summer of '64 he became Profes-
sor of Mathematics at Moore 's Hill College. In the Fall of '66,
he was Professor of Mathematics at the Elenthoriem College,
Jefferson County. The following winter he was Principal of
the Dupont Public Schools, and the next three years he was
Principal of the Vernon Schools.
The succeeding years he spent farming the paternal
acres and in business in Franklin. He was, during this time,
one of the most active and efficient members of the College
Board. ln 1889 he was appointed to a government position
in the Weste1'n Indian Schools. After returning, on account
of ill health, he was made superintendent of the buildings and
grounds of the College,
Although Mr. McCoy cannot be enrolled as one of our
noted alumni-yet he has not been surpassed by any. either
in his enthusiasm or his substantial gifts for his alma mater.
Cnc-third of his worldly substance has been given to the Col-
lege, and besides his large money gifts he has placed valuable
books in the Library, a fine Bible in the Chapel, and beauti-
fied the campus with many flower-beds.
The College is fortunate in having such a man as Mr. Mc-
Coy as its superintendent.
Mr. McCoy has given his life for the propagation of
'fChristianity and Culture." He is happiest when making
others happy. His ever readiness to aid the students at all
times is appreciated by them. He is rich in the Christian
graces and in the treasures substantial and everlasting. May
he live long and happily.

History of the Senior Class
fiW.avgax,:'k N the autumn of 1904. there entered into the
Q33 old halls of Franklin College a new, and
XI W yet ever old, element, a crowd of boys
A L andhgirls-for such' they were-who were
6- destined to distinguish themselves in many
'GM4-if ways before their collegiate careers were
ended. Did any one note their worth?
Perhaps the worthy man, then at the helm, having- seen many
like them, looked under the rough exteriors and could have
foretold the things which would come to pass through this
Nothing in particular did they accomplish this first year.
They aided and abetted the Juniors in their pranks, sometimes
taking the punishments for mischief into which this former
class led them. Thus they early learned to share otherls
burdens. "Fresh men" were they, indeed, but they knew
their strength, and, realizing their time would come, they bided
the while. g
As Sophomores this class did as all Sophomores do-
rested on their oars, gathering strength for future trials. They
had no important part in class affairs. Indeed the College, as
far as outward appearances were concerned, would have got-
ten along just as well without them. But they knew the time
would come when they would be necessary and so they waited
Then they became Juniors, and suddenly their sphere of
influence widened. The time was come for them to show what
patient endeavor and waiting will do. Arbitrators of the
"Peace" of the College did they become. All rioting and
wrath-stirring acts ceased, and, clasping hands with the
Seniors, these Juniors proclaimed to the little world about
them that there would be no more strife-that there was peace.
A peace which we hope to be lasting. Did this end the mis-
sion of this class 'Z No, it had just begun. Again they, chast-
ened by frequent waitings, Hbided a wee."
At last the members of this class have reached the goal
set for them. They are Seniors, feeling all the dignity carried
with that term. At the end of this year they will have ceased
waiting and must strike out for themselves. Their Alma
Mater will never cease to be their guiding star and their days
in Franklin will have been the happiest of their lives. Many
have dropped from their ranks, but others have joined.
Though few in number, this class has upheld and will still
endeavor to uphold, the standards so dear to the t'Old College
on the Hill." THE H1sToR1AN.

Histor of the unior Class
HU,IliVGl'S2ll history consists of the united biographies of heroes."
f- - HREF years ago, as Freshmen, we crossed
the campus and entered the doors of Frank-
lin College. Our President, too, was of our
number, for this was his first year at
Franklin, and under his judicious guid-
i ance we hope to be a worthy product of
the new regime. Our Freshman year was
a yea.r of beginnings in which were laid the foundations of a
class that in quality as well as quantity far surpasses any class
that has preceded it, which the present Senior Class admits.
The events of this first year showed the fibre of our class.
What Freshman Class ever decorated the town so thoroughly
with red paint? We planted our flag upon the college flag-
staff and held it against all corners-except Professor Hall, of
the Greek Department. I
The next year we putaway childish things and along with
the hard work of the Sophomore year we dreamed of our
future and the coming glories of our Alma Mater. It was the
Class of '09 as Sophomores that marshaled the latent forces
of the institution and caused to appear upon the narrow
horizon of our sister classes and the faculty Cindeed, the hori-
zon of everybody who appeared upon the campus the morning
following Hallowe'enj the idea in embryo of the '4New Build-
ings" which are now a reality upon the campus. The labors
of this year molded our class into what it now is and what it
gives so much promise of being in years to come-a class
famous for its intelligence, vigor, love of truth, and all things
right and honorable. -
But 'call work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," and
the energy we displayed in the work of the class room has
been ca.rried into every phase of college life. We have three
members of our class as assistants in the different departments.
We have always been well represented upon the Board of The
Franklin, and this year have five members, including the
editor-in-chief. Our men have taken the cream of athletic
positions on all the teams. From our number have been chosen
two foot ball managers, one foot ball captain, one base ball
captain, one basket ball captain and one basket ball manager.
On the Glee Club we have had a large representation.
In oratory our class has furnished candidates to every primary
contest and twice in three years we have furnished the college
her orator. In literary organizations, in the fraternities, in
the Christian associations and in the church our members are
found as leaders.
Our ability as entertainers was shown on March seven-
teenth, when we entertained the Faculty and Seniors to a St.
Patrick 's luncheon in the College Chapel.
Last, but not least, we have undertaken the publication of
the 1908 "Blue and Gold," and the results of our labor are
With pleasure we review the past, with hope we look for-
ward to the future, trusting that whate'er our lives may be
and wherever they may be led, we may be a blessing to the
world and an honor to Franklin College.

Histor of the Sophomore Class
UR class was organized in the fall of 1906
with the largest enrollment of any Fresh-
man Class in the history of Franklin
College. So far We have borne success-
fully the test of time and examinations and
have at present good prospects of gradua-
ting a large class in 1910.
Our class is composed of all around collegians Who enter
heartily into all the best phases of college life. It has been
thru the efforts of members of this class that Old Franklin has
been enabled to take her present rank in athletics among the
other colleges of the state. Even while We were still Fresh-
men, when it came time to choose a Captain for the Foot Ball
team, it was from our ranks that the choice was made. Again
we Were honored when our famous quarter-back, who starred
in so many of the games of the last year, was elected Captain
for the season of 1908. We are also represented on the base
ball field and We expect as usual that the Worthy men of '10
will faithfully uphold the honor of the class.
The religious life of the college has felt the strong uplift
of our presence. Thru our intellectual efforts we have won
credit and honor. Among our students are found not only
strong students, but also able faculty assistants. In the
gayeties of social life, in the numerous receptions and other
social functions our members are foremost. Some of the boys
of our class were first to test the swimming pool in the new
Gymnasium. The Sophomore boys fill a conspicuous place
among the members of the Glee Club, and their efforts are
greatly appreciated by the girls of the Dormitory, as is shown
by the applause they receive at their nightly serenades.
We are a kind class. We helped to matriculate the wee
and modest Freshmen and thus far have been their faithful
guides, philosophers and friends. Even in that' worthy and
interesting study of campastry we are not lacking. Already
members of our class have matriculated with their co-partners
in that subject, have in fact been majoring in stroliology
for the past two terms.
Vile have intelligent, capable and energetic young men
and women and it is our great hope to publish next year an
unequalled annual. ' THE EIISTORIAN.

History of the Freshman Class
,-,ii-, HE history of the Freshman Class is neces-
sarily brief since it has not existed long
enough for much history to be made. The
class, however, has played a very important
part in college affairs since CU its mem-
bers first arrived, and has accomplished a
few things in spite of almost unsurmount-
Besides the much needed amusement 'll has furnished
for the upper classes we have been able to contribute much to
the College. In athletics, the foot ball eleven received
several strong men from our number and we have furnished
candidates for basket ball and base ball. Although we lost
the Freshman-Sophomore Base Ball game by a. narrow margin,
we think we have the best team, and are looking for new
worlds to conquer, and are determined to make a good record
in this field of activity. We have also been well represented
in the Glee Club. The class realizes the necessity of religious
as well as intellectual and social training and we are active in
Y. M. C. A. and Y. VV. C. A, circles and few of our faces are
missed from chapel.
Besides the above record our class evidently learned some
things from the Sophomores, for several cases have been de-
veloped and strollers from our number are often seen upon
To go back to the beginning of our history we will say
that our plans were frustrated so often by both Professors and
Upper-Classmen that we found it necessary very early to form
an organization, both offensive and defensive. XVe also found
that we were one of the largest classes ever matrieulating and
that only one-third of the number was composed of the fairer
The most promising feature about the Freslnnan Class is
the spirit they show in entering into all departments of
collegiate activity. and their determined efforts to become as
wise as their elders.
So, as we stand at the brink of the Sophomore year, we
can only say we have come. we have seen and we expect to
conquer. THE I-l1sroR1,xN.

:N v f- N this department we wish to extend a special
F5 6 greeting to every alumnus of Franklin
College. This Junior Class C and we are al-
most Seniorslj feel now that this institu-
tion belong to them, but we know that it
once belonged to you as well. The College
on the Hill has been a foster mother to each
of us in proportion as we have committed ourselves to her
Franklin College is called a "small college," but we feel
disposed to measure it differently when we look upon our
large main building, surrounded by so many new ones, and
when we think of the large number 0 influential men and
women who have passed through her halls, uplifted and in-
spired to do well and nobly the task set before them. Many
of these owe to Franklin College this heightening of their
ideals and their greater breadth of view.
Almost every honorable occupation is represented among
the four hundred and forty-three graduates. Of these nearly
one hundred have entered the ministry, a larger number have
been teachers while others are physicians, farmers, attorneys,
business or other professional men. Not a few have proven
themselves leaders among men. The Class of '61 has furnished
three such men: Judge George W. Grubbs, A. M., LL. D.,
of Martinsville, the late Thomas J. Morgan, A. M., D. D., LL.
D., and W. T. Stott, A. M., D. D., LL. D., for thirty-three
years the president of the College, who has done more for his
alma mater than any other one man. Among those who have
been prominent in politics are Charles F. Remy, A. M., LL.
D., '84, of Indianapolis, EX-Supreme Court reporter, Robert
A. Brown, A. M., '84, of the same city, EX-Clerk of the
Supreme Court, and the Honorable Jesse Overstreet, A. M.,
'82, Congressman from the Indianapolis district for the past
ten years. In educational work several of our alumni are
upon the Faculties of other Colleges and Universities: Ed-
ward L. Stevenson, A. M., Ph. D., '81, Professor of History
in Rutgers College, New Brunswick, New J ersey, Paul Mon-
roe, B. S., Ph. D., '90, Professor of Education in Columbia
University, a.nd of the more recent classes: Otis W. Caldwell,
B. S., Ph. D., '94, Professor of Botany in the University of
Chicago, and Augustus R. Hatton, Ph. B., '98, Professor of
Political Science, Western Reserve University, Cleveland,
Ohio. The following alumni of Franklin College are upon
the Faculty of their alma mater: D. A. Owen, A. M., '78, Pro-
fessor of Biology: Jeanette Zeppenfeld, M. S., '90, Professor
of Modern Languages, and Bertha Miller, '00, Professor of
the new department of Domestic Science. Professor C. II.
Hall, A. M., D. D., Vice-President and Professor of Greek, did
not graduate, but was a student in the College, also Professor
Francis VV. Brown of the Latin Department, was a. Franklin
student, and Minnie Brunner, Professor of Instrumental
Music, obtained the major portion of her education in Frank-
To this list one more honored name should be added. It
is the name of the kind-hearted, White-haired, Christian gentle-
man-Mr. YV. H. McCoy, the superintendent of the buildings
and grounds. He was a member of Doctor Stott's class, that
of '61. He is loved by every student.
An Alumni Association was formed June 27, 1855. At
that time the number of graduates was so small that any stu-
dent who had obtained the greater part of his advanced educa-
tion in the College could become a member. This custom con-
tinued until 1S85, since that time only graduates have been
eligible. Professor D. A. Owen, the present secretary, has held
that office for twenty-three years. The Alumni Association has
done much for the College-financially and in many other sub-
stantial ways. 1
The Alumni Editor has written to several of the Alumni,
asking among other things, K'Wl1at has the College meant to
you '? " and in the following few pages We give the answers.
Letters from the lumni
Franklin College was quite new in 1848, and as I had been favored
with four excellent New England teachers, had received my ideas of col-
lege life from a graduate of Middlebury College, and had been a member
of a well-advanced literary society, hence I was not very strongly im-
pressed with what I found in 1848 at Franklin. Three good men were
there. Professor Hougham became a practical chemist, and for his
knowledge and skill I had cause to be very grateful to Franklin when
in 1851 costly instruments came into my hands as a teacher in Alabama.
I had cause also and still have to be grateful to Franklin for furnishing
such a thorough teacher as Professor Brand. For the personal friend-
ship of President Chandler and his family and some of his kindred, I
have large reason to be grateful that I was once a student at Franklin
College. Yours respectfully,
Crownpoint. T. H. BALL, Class of 1850.
-I it ii-
I entered Franklin College in the winter of 1856-57, after having
taught several terms of district school. I soon found a very positive
religious spirit, and a high standard of class-room work. One of the
best teachers at the time was Professor J. Brumback, he said little, but
in some way the student who failed to master the lesson could not help
feeling shame and confusion of face. But the master spirit of the insti-
tution was the president-Rev. S. Bailey, D. D. His breadth of
acquaintance with men and things, and his deep personal interest in
his pupils were the main elements of his power 5 and these grew out of
his profound moral and religious connections. He eminently was a man
of God. Nor would I omit to mention the advantages derived from
acquaintance with worthy fellow students, especially my own classmates.
The high ideals held up to us in the class room, the pulpit, and the per-
sonal lives of the professors were not lost upon us-as the long after
lives of many of the students have demonstrated. In brief the essential
factors in a worthy college are great teachers, and a body of students
able and eager to profit by the teaching.
W. T. STOTT, Class of 1861.
You ask, 'fWhat has Franklin College meant to me?" I reply:
When I was young, and became possessed with a thirst for knowledge,
and feeling called to the gospel ministry, knew my imperative need of an
education, Franklin College promised to my hope the slaking of my
thirst, and the meeting of my need. My expectations were whetted to
intensity, and given quite dehnite shape by the detailed recital of col-
lege experiences by a friend-an ex-student of Franklin. But the oppor-
tunity was larger than my anticipationsg to acquire discipline of mental
powers 5 to know the meaning of "Christianity and Culture" in the
character of my teachers 3 to know human nature in its many varieties
in my fellow students. There, too, I lea1'ned of our Baptist denomina-
tion, its past and present, as I hardly think possible to be learned out-
side of a college of one's own faith. This, through our periodicals,
through our frequent references to facts by our professors, and through
seeing and hearing of leaders in our great enterprises. And this knowl-
edge of our own work in the world gave me ready access to the wider
knowledge of the Lord 's kingdom among mankind. And the knowledge
of the world is the knowledge of it in .the light of Divine truth.
Since leaving the College it has been two things to me: my Alma
Mater, with a sort of mother's interest in me-to my inspiration, and
also a medium and instrumentality and institution through which to do
good, indeed, one of our great means of doing good -to this great world
of human beings among whom we live. For surely, there is no better,
greater way of doing good tl1an by giving Christian culture to capable
young men and women. Yours respectfully,
N. C. SMITH, Class of 1878.
It is a joy to me to bring llly little leaf to be woven into a crown
of glory for Alma Mater. Wfhat did my course in Franklin College
mean to me? First of all, the realization of one of my earliest dreams,
for a college education had been the goal of my ambition from a little
child. Then it meant tl1e opportunity for tl1e development of 111ind and
character under the guidance and inspiration of a most devoted band of
teachers. It meant, too, the strengthening of my Christian life, and the
deepening of my interest in missionary endeavor, and a widening of Illy
mind in many directions. It meant the formation of many fellowships
with fellow students which remain a joy and help through tl1e years,
and of that chiefest fellowship which comes to bless a woman's life. So
I rejoice that I am one of Franklin's daugl1te1's, and give to her loyal
devotion. Yours respectfully,
ELIZABETH C. STARK, Class of 1888.
It was nineteen years ago one April afternoon that I arrived at the
Pennsylvania station of Franklin-the farthest I l1ad ever been from
home-and walked down tl1e tracks, inquiring my way to tl1e college. On
the way I passed a man who I lea1'ned afterward was the president.
That night I met Dr. Stott in his office and appeared duly at classes
next morning. Then followed a series of personal experiences which I
should like to relate, and no doubt they would belread with more interest
than anything else in the Annual UU but tl1e editors have limited n1y
Well, I had reached college from Hthe banks of the Wabasli far
away," and was bound for-I knew not what and never have found out
since. But looking back through the years I have a growing apprecia-
tion of all that the college, l1er devoted professors and high-minded
students have done for me.
Providence, R. I. E. A. HANLEY, Class of 1895.
It is llly belief that Franklin College is the best place in the state
for young people, whether they are Baptists or not. The true educator
not only believes in a 1llO1'3.1 and spiritual training in connection with
tl1e intellectual, but he works with that higher development always in
view. This, I feel su1'e, is what the educators in Franklin are doing and
have been doing for years. Tl1e1'efore, I believe that tl1e College is, in
tl1e words of Browning:
"Machinery just meant
To give tl1y soul its bent,
Try thee and turn thee forth, suihciently impressed."
Goodlaud. IXIAY HUs'roN, Class of 1897.
You ask what does Franklin mean to mc. Wfhat a question. No
words are adequate. B1-oadening of mental outlook, deepening of life's
purpose, quickening of spiritual life, nrnier grasp on fundamentals, both
mental and spiritual, tender ties of friendship for time and eternity,
all these and many more do I owe to Franklin. And this to tl1e Franklin
To tl1e Franklin that is I give a hearty welcome. May she have
lost none of l1e1' old time spirit and power, but gained much of new I'Z"ll1C
eiticieney and opportunity,
Is the wish of a grateful Alumnus,
Columbus. F. B. Ninn., Class of 1900.
Our Alma Mater rneans more to ns, I am inclined to believe, the
farther in tl1e past we leave our college days. This 1nay he saying that
Hdistance 16l1dS C11Cll2111'E11lCDiZ to the view: " well, so let it be, yet will
distance-either i11 time or space-ever give to Franklin College an
encl1antment greater tl1a11 that of wl1icl1 she is worthy. If I should say
in one word what Franklin College meant to 1ne it would be companion-
ship. Having g1'ONY11 up about the College I never really appreciated
her until she became lily Alma Mater, having known ma11y of the pro-
fessors from llly youth, it was during 1ny college days that we had com-
panionship. And is any co111pa11io11sl1ip of friends so dear as that of
fellow students? And 'flest we forget" that Franklin College meant
companionship she gave 1116 one of l1er Alumnae as a constant companion.

When you ask wl1at Franklin College meant to me, I feel like the
s1nall boy who was enumerating the good qualities of his young play-
mate and ended with, "VVell, you've just got to know l1im to appreciate
him." So it is with Franklin.
Witliin her walls and grounds were spent SOIUG of tl1e most pleasant
and profitable years of my life-years which are coming up ever as re-
freshing 1llC1llO1'lCS and forming some of tl1e solid places on which I
stand. The actual amount of Greek and Latin carried away has 11ot
meant tl1e most, but that influence from the lives of the teachers, that
unconscious influence which pervadespher very atmosphere.
In tl1is I pay 1ny highest tribute to Franklin, that she leads her
young men and young won1en to appreciate tl1e higher things in life
and instils a purpose which can he satisied with nothing less than the
l1est. Yours respectfully,
Franklin. Ensns GRACE SrUBBs, Class of 1904.

Time, alone, will reveal what my Alma Mater l1as meant to me. To
the inspiring infiuence of the members of the faculty, the pleasant inter-
course with tl1e students and the college life and work itself, I am great-
ly indebted for the pa1't they have had in making my life. Witlr this
consciousness, as the days go by, meinories of college days become more
sacred and my heart cherishes for Franklin College a continued and ever
increasing usefulness to the world. ,

SORGRES IN COLLEGIO
Q , N 1535,
gilt Histor of Alpha Gamma Alpha
EALIZING the need of another sorority in
Franklin College, Alpha Gamma Alpha
was organized January 31, 1896, with six
charter members-Mary Payne Beck, Lybil
Sterns Taylor, Jessie Upjohn Waldo,
Jennie Merrill, Elizabeth VVa.rd, and Nellie
Miller XVhite. The Sorority was intro-
duced at the Athenian Literary Society that evening, was
wa.rmly welcomed by the other fraternities and immediately
began a properous career.
At the end of the first year, the Sorority numbered ten
members, it has grown rapidly since that time, and now has
a membership of one hundred and fourteen girls. Besides
the active chapter of eighteen there is an organized alumnae
chapter of twenty-tive members, which meets every two weeks,
and which is interested and ready to help the active girls, at
all times in any of their undertakings.
Six of Eranklin's leading society women have been patron-
esses of Alpha Gamma Alpha since eighteen hundred and
ninety-eight-Mrs. Nort Whitesides, Mrs. C. A. Overstreet,
Mrs. O. C. Dunn, Mrs. M. J. Voris, Mrs. C. E. Payne, and Mrs,
E. C. Miller. At a reception at Mrs. E. C. Miller 's home in
January, nineteen hundred and five, Mrs. Archibald I-Iall was
introduced as a patroness. 'The patronesses all have beautiful
homes, which are always open to the girls, and they are ever
ready with any assistance that they can give.
The tirst meetings of the Sorority were held in rooms,
which they had fitted up on the second floor of Chandler Hall.
The girls left the College building to move into a chapter
home on Edwards Street, which they occupied for three yearsg
since that time they have had a chapter house with Mrs. By-
field, on North Home Avenue for two yearsg another home on
South Henry Street for two years with Mrs. Erschel Records.
and Mrs. Elmer VVhite: and this year the chapter house was
with Mrs. S. N. Rogers on East Jefferson Street, until the
chapter house was given up to move into the more commodious
hall-provided for Alpha Gamma Alpha in the new Dormi-
tory. This chapter hall is located in the southwest corner of
the building upon the second floor, and overlooks the beauti-
ful College Campus. The out-of-town girls of the Sorority

History of Pi Pieta Phi
r INCE the establishment of Indiana Alpha
NA Chapter, it has had a long period of pros-
perity, it has always been strong, and the
members have been bound to each other by
enduring ties of sympathy and love, The
Chapter has been a large factor in the
social, intellectual, and spiritual life of the
College. It has sent two delegates to the State Oratorical
Contest, has several times had the presidency of Y. VV. C. A.
and of the Literary Societies, and has been interested in all
Many Alumnae have been sent out in the twenty years
of its history, some to found homes, some to teach, others to
enter many spheres of business and professional life. One of
our charter ineinbers, Emma Harper Turner, was for one
term Grand President of Pi Beta Phi, another, Jeanette Zep-
penfeld, is in her second term as Fraternity Historian. Two
of our Alumnae are now upon the College Faculty, others
are upholding the ideals and standards of Pi Beta Phi in
worthy careers in professional and domestic life. Their
interest in the active Chapter, in their Alma Mater, and in
the national work of the fraternity has never flagged.
In July of 1906, Indiana Alpha, as one of the three
Indiana. Chapters. was hostess to the National Convention,
which niet in Indianapolis. It was the largest convention in
the history of the fraternity, and Indiana Alpha attended in
a. body. After the close of the convention, the delegates and
visitors were invited to a trolley ride down to Franklin, Where
the chapter house and the college buildings were thrown open,
and an informal reception was given at the home of one of our
At the last convention, held at New Orleans, during the
Christmas season of 1907-8, with Louisiana Alpha as hostess,
Indiana Alpha had the banner delegation of nine, four active
and tive alumnae girls being present. The convention was one
of the most enjoyable in the fraternity history, it being the
first to be held in the south.
This year Indiana Alpha has the largest membership in
its history, and the largest number of outgoing seniors, the
members feel that they are closing the most prosperous year
in the ehapterls history, At the beginning of this year, we
were compelled to give up our chapter house. as all out-of-
town girls had to move into the new Dormitory. Yale were
given a large room on the second floor, as a. chapter room and
parlor, in which we are very happily domiciled.
It is the ambition of Indiana Alpha to rise to the worthy
standards set for her by the national fraternity, and by con-
tinuous growth to keep pace with the continued and increas-
ing prosperity of the College.

moving spirit among the founders and he
is loved and honored today as the father
of the fraternity. There were eight
founders of whom the only survivor is
Colonel John B. Rudolph of Alabama.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity was born and nourished
under southern environments and survived the struggles of the
Civil War, although many of its chapters died at this time.
After the war cloud had passed away, the fraternity recuper-
ated rapidly and extended rapidly as a Southern Fraternity,
In 1883 the fraternity began to extend eastward and then
north and west, until today it is one of the largest fraternities
in the country, having seventy chapters in the largest and
best institutions, and a membership exceeding thirteen thou-
It has numbered among its members some of the most
prominent men of the nation, foremost among them being our
martyred president, Williani McKinley, who was a member
of an Ohio chapter.
In 1891 at the Atlanta Convention, a charter was granted
to a club in Franklin College. It was the first chapter of the
fraternity in Indiana and received the name "Indiana Al-
pha." It was installed February 14, 1892. At first it was
thought that the chapter would not live, but its founders,
James A. Berryhill, C. D. Hazelton, J. M. Batterton, J. H.

The chapter, after becoming established, has thrived and
made steady gains each year, finding a high place in all college
affairs, and numbers among its members some of the most
prominent alumni of the College. In athletics, society, and
all other phases of collegiate activity, the S. A. Efs of Indiana
Alpha have been leaders. In the class-room the members have
stood in the front ranks.
During the present school year, Indiana Alpha Chapter
has numbered twenty-four. Four men will be lost by gradua-
tion-Harry I-Iougham, J. Nelson IVright, Ralph Records, and
Vtlillard Hendrickson. It has been several years since the
cha.pter has been in a chapter house, and occupy a beautiful
suite of rooms in the Hall Block.

I-Iistory of Phi Delta Theta
, v NDIANA Delta of Phi Delta Theta was
'Q founded on April 20, 1861, by D. D. Banta,
Casabiancal Byfield, George W. Grubbs,
N Thomas J. Morgan, and William T. Stott.
Of these only two, Judge Grubbs and
Doctor Stott, are now living. When the
College was closed on account of the war
the chapter lost its charter, but was immediately revived upon
the opening of the doors in 1869. VVhen the school was again
forced to suspend the chapter went with it, but was revived
upon the new start of the College, and ever since it has taken
an active part in college life. Phi Delta Theta was the first
and for many years the only fraternity in Franklin College.
For years the chapter has occupied down-town halls.
The present halls were secured in 1902. They are located
on the third iioor of the city building, and consist of three
spacious and handsomely furnished rooms. Vxlhile the halls
are an ideal place for social gatherings, it was felt that they
were insufficient to meet the growing needs of the chapter,
so last year the Schlosser residence at 99 North Forsythe
Street was rented by the chapter, and occupied in the spring
term of 1907. The house is a la.rge and handsome two story
brick, situated upon one of the largest lawns in the eastern
part of the city. There are ample sleeping accommodations, and
the entire interior is tastefully furnished. At present nine of
the chapter are rooming in the house, with eleven boarding
at the table. The boys all feel thatlife in the chapter-house
is splendid preparation for the time-which in some cases
seems to be close at hand-when they will start homes of their
Phi Delta Theta is represented on the faculty by C. H.
Hall, of the department of Greek, and D. A. Owen, of the
department of Biology. Among the distinguished men who
have been members of the local chapter are Congressmen W.
S. Holman and F. M. Griffith, Gen. T. J. Morgan, United
States Indian Commissioner, Hon. R. A. Brown, Professor C.
E. Goodellof Denison University. Prof. J. T. C. Noe of Ken-
tucky State College, Rev. G. M. Lamberston of Lincoln,
Neb., Prof. J. VV. Moncrief of Chicago, and Rev. C. M. Carter
of Muncie. The chapter at present numbers twenty active
members and two pledges.
Indiana Delta will entertain the Epsilon Province Con-
vention this term. Visiting Phis will be present from Purdue,
Indiana, Wabash, etc.

f- A HE Periclesian.Literary Society was founded
January 11, 1853, by E. 11. simpson, cf. W.
1 Clark, P. K. Parr, F. M. Fufgason, Uriah
Mullikin and J. D. Hungate, who left the
:S Union Literary Society that they might be-
come charter members of the new society,
and these men chose the present motto.
Vtfhen the College was suspended in 1861 the first part of
the history of the society closed. Many of the members
entered the Union Armies-some of whom lost their lives,
others returned home with honors. In 1871 with the re-
organization Of the College the Periclesian Literary Society
was re-united and sustained its former high grade literary
work. In 1877 a strong spirit of rivalry existed between the
two fraternities, Delta Tau Delta and Phi Delta Theta, and
the former organized the Webster Literary Society, which
soon afterward became anti-fraternity. The Phi Delts re-
mained with the society giving it a distinctly fraternity spirit.
Soon after this, women were admitted to membership. The

was about this time donated to the general library of the
College, and became the nucleus of the present large library.
In 1884 a number of members withdrew and formed the
Athenian Literary Society: this new society lasted twelve
years, when the majority of its members became Periclesians.
ln 1895 a new hall was furnished on the third floor of Stott
Hall. Again in 1899 several members withdrew to become
the charter members of the Ofergan Literary Societyg this
society had a very short life.
The great majority of the representatives to the State
Oratorical Contests have been members of the Society, also
several representatives in the inter-collegiate debates.
For the last few years the interest in literary societies
seems to have declined in all smaller colleges and Franklin
has not been an exception. The greatest reason for lack of
interest in Franklin is due to the fact that the department of
English has been so advanced that it now gives an opportunity
for all students to get the highest class of literary work in the
department, and as a. result the present membership of the
Periclesian Literary Society is only twenty-five.

Wfebster Literary Society
HE past year for the Webster Literary
Society has been one of steady work and
prosperity. We have added many new stu-
dents to our membership during the College
year and our enrollment is now above forty.
We are this year completing the thirtieth
year of our existence as a society. The
same zeal which inspired the men to organize such a society
in 1877 still burns in the hearts of the Websters. There has
been a Weak prophecy that the day of literary societies in
Franklin College is nearing an end, but we feel that there
Was never a time when there was greater need of training in
public speaking and literary work than at present, so the
Webster Hall is lighted regularly on Friday evenings, and is
filled with a crowd of happy young people, as if it were an
indispensable part of Franklin College. We frequently send
from our ranks the representatives to the State Oratorical, and
to every phase of active college life. Our members are
interested in and engage actively in Y. M. and Y. VV. C. A.
work, and every form of athletics. The duties and pleasures
of the members are not such that they encroachnupon the time
of the student in a way to detract from his ability as a. student,
but each is a supplement to the other.
r.. ' A A
WVe feel that the object of the society has not been changed
from what it originally was-that of enabling the individual
to be strong mentally and to express ideas in public in an ac-
ceptable manner. But we believe that our purpose has been
broadened. XVe have admitted ladies to our ranks who are
among our strongest literary workers. Vtfe now strive to de-
velop the social, moral, and aesthetical sides of the individual
as well as the literary. This has been criticised rather harshly
by some of our aluinnae, but we care no longer to produce
literary prodigies, but strive to turn out men and women.
Our members, in addition to taking part in public social events,
have a social life distinctly their own. On Thanksgiving the
ladies furnished a unique surprise for the gentlemen, by an
almost extemporaneous turkey roast. Few organizations could
plan and execute an affair of its kind with more dexterity
than did the Wfebster girls. The gentlemen of the society
reciprocated by giving a banquet to the ladies on January 18.
in honor of Daniel VVebster's birthday. No social affair has
been executed with better skill and taste than this-prepared
by the Ladies' Aid Society of the First Baptist Church.
The Vilebster Society, although an organization Within
itself, having an existence distinctly its own. and participat-
ing in every activity of the College, is at strife with no other
organization. We believe that all of the organizations have
their places in the college as well as ourselves, so why waste
time in useless confiict?
The society has its own hall in the accustomed place upon
the third iioor and owns its own furniture, including piano,
free from debt. Although co-educational, the society is neither
a matrimonial agency nor is it likely to develop into a 'tmatch
trustf' for this would throw the custodian of the girl-book
out of a job. It is generally understood that nobody but the
president and chaplain are permitted to 'zrun cases I"
With the growth in the College, the Webster Literary
Society must keep pace, so the members of the organization
must work with a new zeal and make its influence felt not only
within the precincts of the College, but throughout the entire
country wherever its members go.

THE WEBSTER HALL
Lineonia Literary Society
F - -iHIS society Was organized March 27, 1908.
It took its name out of memory for the
greatest man the nineteenth century pro-
QS2 Sfwgfp duced, Abraham Lincoln. It was felt by
E53 the promoters of the new society that there
was need of an organization the purpose
' of which should be literary rather than
social culture, an organization that should stand primarily
for intellectual progress. VVith this purpose in view the Lin-
conia was organized with twenty charter members.
Only those are admitted to membership who desire im-
provement in literary lines and who are of unquestionable
moral character, and who stand Well in college work. No
shirker of duty, no one seeking merely social preferment will
be admitted to membership. The spirit of the constitution is
to instill into the members originality, genuineness, honesty
and fairness in essay, debate or criticism: and no abuse of
this spirit will be permitted.
The literary committee has prescribed for study for the
spring term the period in American literature from 1700 to
1800. This will comprehend a close analysis of the character
and writings of Cotton Mather, Jonathan Edwards, Benja-
min Franklin, Thomas J efferson, George Washington, Patrick
Henry and Horace Mann. All members having purely literary
duties will be confined to this period-a period generally un-
familiar to most students of literature, and one full of signifi-
cance to the conscientious seeker after ideals of life and con-
Questions for debate are selected by a committee of
three, and from several questions the deb-aters can choose one.
Programs are announced two weeks in advance so that ample
time is given for thorough and adequate preparation. Talent
in music appears on every program.
The society will adhere strictly to the ideals set forth in
its constitution. It has no word of condemnation for societies
already in existence in Franklin. It has been organized purely
on independent lines, talent, self-respect, zeal for literary ad-
vancement and self-culture being its aims.
The charter members are: Ruth Law, Bessie Hufty,
Golda Stratton, Emma Vilvock, Faye Fulnier, Ollie Carr,
Dollie Corn and Beulah Rusmisel and Messrs. Miller, E. N.
Cox, C. E. Odell, A. I-I. McKee, A. W. Lyons, W. H. Lyons,

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Franklin College Y. M. C. A.
, HE Young Men is Christian Association is
the one comprehensive religious organiza-
tion of the College, among the men.
Since its organization in 1892, it has
exerted a large and Wholesome influence
5 over the student body, enrolling in its mem-
bership prominent men from every class in the College. The
spirit of fellowship among the men has been greatly strength-
ened through the coming together of the students of diverse
interests, the athlete, the fraternity man, the independent,
and the ministerial student, by uniting their efforts in a com-
mon purpose, that of nobler living, have been led into close
and enduring bonds of friendship.
On the third floor of the main college building, in the
left wing, is to be found a commodious and neatly furnished
room. Here the members of the association come together
every Thursday evening, for an hour of song and devotion.
One of the most prominent functions of the Y. M. C. A.
is the promotion of Bible study. A fourfold purpose is ob-
served in this work, viz., to bring the Bible to the serious at-
tention of every man in the College, to enlist as many students
as possible in systematic Bible study, to train men for personal
work in soul-winning, and to lead students to form habits of
daily devotional Bible study. '
Another work of the association is to awaken and develop
in every student an active interest in the missionary propa-
ganda. For this purpose, classes are formed each year for
the study of missions, also a joint meeting of the Y. W. and
Y. M. C. A. is held once each month. The monthly missionary
meetings are very popular among the students, special music
and the discussion of live missionary topics are the main
features, with intercessory prayers.
Frequently during the college-year the men come to-
gether for a social evening, and at the beginning of each term,
the Y. W. and Y. M. usually unite in a reception to the general
reception to the entire student body.
The most lasting impressionsiwhich our college men bear
of the Y. M. C. A. are usually those received at Lake Geneva,
where a number of the members go, annually, to attend the
summer-conference between the college men of the middle-
west. This year we expect to send about eight or ten men,
and from the inspiration and vision which they will receive,
the association will be itted for a large and fruitful work next
The essential unity existing between the many depart-
ments of the College Y. M. C. A. is to lead the young man gust
entering college to take as the ruling principle of his
college life the command of Christ, ' A Seek ye first the kingdom
of God and his righteousness,"-"first in time, first in en-
deavor, first in companionship, Hrst in influence."

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Franklin College Y. W. C. A.
if HE Y. W. C. A. was organized at Franklin
College in 1891, and in its seventeen years
- has constantly grown in numbers and
strength. The membership of the Associa-
tion now reaches almost seventy and is
2 WWA drawn from every organization in college.
The aim of the Y. W. C. A. is the all-
round development of the college girl, but the spiritual side
receives special emphasis in the association work. Weekly
devotional meetings are held in the Association hall on Thurs-
day evenings at 6 :30, at which the average attendance is about
forty. The meetings are usually led by members of the As-
sociation and are the largest factors in the spiritual life of the
H The social life is enlivened by parties about twice a term
at which girls can get together for a general good time. The
interest in Bible study and Mission study are kept up by
classes, there were four courses offered in the former, with a
total enrollment of about sixty-ive. Three mission study
courses were offered this year, in connection with the Y. M. C.
A., in which about twenty girls Were enrolled. Joint mission-
ary meetings are held with the Y. M. C. A. every month. The
feature of most interest this year was the visit of Miss Stirka
Palasheva on April 2nd and 3rd. Miss Palasheva is a pure
Bulgarian, in America studying that she may go back and
organize Y. W. C. A. 's in her own country. She spoke twice,
during her visit, to the Associations and her talks were both
interesting and instructive.
The local Y. W. C. A. entertained the State Convention
in November, 1906. The convention was the best, and at that
time, the largest, yet held in Indiana. It was a great help,
both to the spiritual life of the Association and to the town.
The summer of 1907 , the Association sent eight delegates to the
Slllillllfill Conference at Lake Geneva, and twenty-one dele-
gates to the State Convention at Greencastle, November,
1907. These were the largest delegations we have ever sent
and are indicative of the growing interest in association work.
In the spring of 1907, the Association gave a campus fete
for raising funds to send delegates to Lake Geneva, rain kept
it from being entirely successful, but a large amount was
realized notwithstanding the weather.
This year the Association has taken up a new project,
that of fitting up a rest room in the College for college girls,
it is progressing slowly, for we must keep up our local ex-
penses and pledges and this is an extra, but we hope to have
the room fitted up for the fall term of 1908. Our budget for
this year amounts to about fB150.00g this includes pledges to
state, national and world work and to missions.
This has been the most successful year, and the year of
greatest promise in the history of the local association, and
our hope and prayer is, that with our new and strong cabinet
leading us, we will become the largest force in the spiritual
life of the institution.

The Ministerial Association
,-,ii-, HE Ministerial Association of Franklin
College was organized in the spring of
1906. The purpose of the organization is
to bring the ministerial students of the
college into close relationship with one
another, and for the purpose of studying
subjects especially related to the ministry,
also to give the office of the minister a distinctive emphasis in
The association meets each week at 3 o'clock. During
the past year and continuing to the present time the associa-
tion has been addressed by the ministers of the city and faculty
members, and these addresses have been instrumental of much
good and have been much appreciated by the members.
During the winter of 1906-T, a series of meetings last-
ing one week, was held in the college chapel under the direc-
tion of the association. Doctor Bryan preached at these meet-
ings and resulted in the deepening of the spiritual life of the
Christian students and in several conversions. This winter,
instead of holding a series of meetings, the association worked
with the First Baptist Church in its series of meetings.
The association hasva membership of twenty-three.

strongest organizations of the College and

XE U-J coinpaies very avoia y wi t ose o e
'yr-jf? other colleges of the state. Practically the
entire student body compose its member-
Yiw ship and a general interest and enthusiasm
is shown in both the local and state contests.
Great hopes were entertained this year for a decided
success at the state contest, for we knew that we had a repre-
sentative Who was capable of winning the highest honors. Miss
Georgia Lewis was our representative, and it was no fault of
hers that we took the lowest place. Miss Lewis has great
natural ability in oratory and delivered a splendid oration.
It was due to rank injustice alone that we did not obtain a
better position: For two years we feel that we have received un-,
just treatment, but our enthusiasm has not diminished and
we expect to go into the contest next year with renewed
energy. It will take a courageous person to face the situa.tion,
after the disappointments we have received, but we have those
in our association who are ready and anxious to undertake it.
WVith more than our usual hopefulness, we are looking
forward to the next State Oratorical Contest. Soon after the
contest in February, the association met and recommended
changes in the constitution. Instead of the usual primary
contest to determine our representative, there will be an inter-
class contest, the representatives to which will be determined
by class contests. This inter-class contest will be held during
commencement week, thus giving the orator more time to
prepare his or her oration for the State Contest. To the win-
ner in the inter-class or primary contest will be given a year 's
scholarship in Franklin College, to the one receiving second
honors will be given a two-term scholarship, and the third
place artist will receive a one-term scholarship. If the orator
is lucky enough-for it seems to depend upon luck-to
receive first place in the State Contest, another year 's contest
will be given to him. With these new features as an incentive
the future of oratory in Franklin College cannot be as dark
as the past. We have the material for good orators and have
shown that we deserve high rank, and next year will see the
attempt to realize our fondest hopes.
THE GLEE CLUB
The G ee Club
HE Franklin College Glee Club of last year scored
such a success that its surviving members felt
warranted in prolonging its existence through the
vicissitudes of another college year. The organization of the
Club was effected in the fall term with the following members:
First Tenor-E. N. COX, C. TIANNA, G. W. MOCAIN, R. A.
Second Tenor-E. E. BYERS, L. CHILDS, L. W. TIANNA,

During the spring term the club filled an engagement at
Madison, May 2.
The club as a whole has been very successful in many
ways. It has made and kept a good reputation along musical
lines and has been the agency in bringing into college many
new students. It is sincerely hoped that the organization will
be continued through the succeeding years, and in all prob-

, f- A X HE FRANKLIN, the official publication of
the student body, is a bright, spicy, month-
ly magazine-in its ifth volume. All the
QR-U2 ff -Us ' - P
SMG wx-3 organizations of the college are represented
upon the publication board, and it is thus
5 in reality the voice of the students of
Franklin College. The Franklin Publica-
tion Board was organized during the college year of 1903-4,
and each successive year has seen improvement in the paper's
appearance and growth in attractiveness and size. The con-
stitution provides a rotation of the offices, thus eliminating
The numbers of volume five have all been given a hearty
welcome by the students, and the exchanges have commented
upon the bright, newsy appearance of the paper. Each num-
ber has contained from thirty-two to thirty-six pages. The
Franklin has not aspired to be a classic magazine, and no
definite plan has been followed, each editor has been allowed
to get out his department in as vigorous a manner as possible.
The literary section has contained nothing particularly heavy
but an occasional good story has appeared, along with poems
and articles of no mean merit. The editorials have been
timely, terse and to the point--defects pointed out and com-
mendations as freely expressed. The Alumni Department,
while not taking as many pages as some of the others, has
contained much news of the c'grads" that should be interest-
ing to those of the Alumni who are upon the subscription list.
The Local Department has given .quite a close chronicle of the
daily routine about the college and added much to the Hhuman
interest" of the paper. The Miscellaneous matter has con-
tained much of 'Lhuman interestn also. Indeed one of the
reasons for the anticipation With which the succeeding num-
bers have been held, is due to this department, as the jokes
and 4'roasts"-as a rule-have been local and to the point.
The Athletic Department, while not as full as it might have
been, has been well handled and all the large events in Frank-
lin 's athletic world have been reported.
The Business Department of the paper this year has been
very ably handled. The business manager has been a busy
man, and to him much of the credit is due for the increased
space at the disposal of the editors. The treasurer has always
been in convenient places for the reception of subscriptions,
and has ably seconded the business manager in getting to-
gether the funds.
The Franklin 's circulation is naturally largely local, with
some fifty high schools, the college exchanges, and Alumni as
out-of-town subscribers. The support of Volume five by the
students has been fairly good, altho some students still persist
in reading their neighbor's copy. It is hoped that the suc-
ceeding years will see the student support continue to increase
as Well as the other elements that contribute to a successful
' ' Franklin. "

but is gently iolling and covered with a
smooth carpet of green. Large elms and
maples, that have silently witnessed the
'fiff i i growth of the College for nearly a century,
tower above the modern buildings in their
majesty and strength, shedding a benign influence over those
who come up to these halls, symbolizing the endurance of this
institution and the high and lofty ideals that have ever been
NEAL' S CAMP
hers. These old trees are the pride of Franklin-there is a
touch of the "forest primevall' about them,-God himself
planted them in all their artistic profusion. Some had to be
sacrificed to make room for the new Dormitory and it was
with deep regret that they were felled. The campus has been
marred on the east side by the necessary excavations for the
new buildings, but before commencement it will be leveled
again and Nature will forget the injury by spreading her
green mantle over the scar. Through the work of Mr. McCoy
the campus has been beautified by beds of hyacinths and tulips
that show their gay colors in the spring. Many flowering
shrubs and bushes and beds of rare ferns make spots attractive
that would otherwise be bare and unsightly. Stone and
cement walks connect the College with the outside world but
they are not numerous enough to spoil the effect of the Whole.
No signs reading "Keep off the grass" are now to be seen, and
the students walk on the grass, a privilege rightfully theirs.
The College campus is a. favorite resort of the birds, which
speaks well for the student body. They come early to the
trees and bushes and with their sweet songs encourage the
students in their work. Tame squirrels also run about for
nuts or chase each other for the very joy of living. The
Athletic Field is on the southeast of the campus and the Ten-
nis Courts give the opportunity to exercise and to Hlove-all."
Fine roads lead into the country-two miles east is Lover 's
Lane, a beautiful forest-bordered road of a mile long, which
is a favorite walk of the students. Neal 's Camp is a few miles
south and Nature has lavished her favors on this spot. A
stream large enough for boating winds between grassy banks
through woods of line old trees and furnishes the students an
ideal picnic place.
Franklin College is uniquely situated and is especially
favored by Nature. This accounts in part for the peculiarly
fine atmosphere and air of culture and refinement that the
stranger first notes upon visiting Franklin. The College is
"on the hill," and the hill was formed by God himself-the
air cis pure, the grass, the trees, the birds, the sunshine, all
belong to God and are, therefore, free for all and uplift all.
Theprinciples upon which the College stands are eternal and
its movements are upward and the beneiicent influence of
God's out-of-doors lingers long in the lives of the men and
women who go out into the world from Franklin College and
perhaps in a subtle way keeps them pure and true through
Q Heart Sans Faith
HEART sans faith, devoid of joy once thine,
Whence came the doubts that fill thy trembling soul,
And torture all thy wakened thought with things
Thou canst not know? Is he the God, then
That men call Law? That holds his vast abode
Throughout the realm of force? A substance great,
A mystic power, before whom all our knees
Shall bend, till we our wearied race have run,
And lie before him crushed, to crumble back
Into the dust from whence at first we sprang?
Is he the God who dwells in Wood, in stone,
In thee, and in thy mates that live and breathe,
And pass away into the Great Beyond?
Art thou but part of His Composite VVhole,
An atom in the broad expanse of stars,
A finite second in the Infinite,
A thought once held in His Eternal Mind?
Shouldst thou rejoice to think thyself a part?
O soul, didst thou and all thy race ascend
From that archaic spark which flashed to life
In that far-off and dim primordial morn
Wlhen chaos reigned throughout the earth and sky?
And what of all was there behind the spark?
Was it the God, who lives beyond the realm
Of time and space? He, whom thou canst not know
Save through a conscience that te gave to thee
At bi1'th, which bids thee live a moral life,
Dedicated to Philosophy Five.
And walk upright among the sons of men?
He, that bids thee know thy life in Him,
And His in thee, since thou canst have a thought
That he is ruling in the Absolute?
And is he wise who makes his little code
For the greatest good of man, and tramps upon
The life of those that cannot live his law?
And must we think the race is first or live
As individual men? Did we mistake
In our fond thought that God became a man,
And died his death upon the cross to save
Our souls from sin? To save the souls that cling
To Him, and in Him place their faith, from hell
And everlasting death, thus ush 'ring in
The day of individual life and hope?
Are these but fables fanciful, and naught
But vagaries of the mind? Is there no hell,
No heaven? Must we all come to selfsame ends?
Is ours too small a view of Him who reigns
Forever and ever within the boundless spheres?
Have we been rash to limit God Almighty,
To think that He should care for such as we
Save in a larger plan? Must we lose faith
In him who died that we might live, and call
Him now but man, since birth immaculate
Against our nature could not be? O Soul,
The wisdom of this earth today would make
Thy Christ a little more than common man,
Much less than one divine!
Hast thou existed once and but forgotten
When thou didst come into this changed state?
And dost thou go again into a life
Thou knewest, yet knowest not? Or is this all?
When shades of death oppress thee in the night,
And morbid melancholy makes thy heart
Grow bitter with strange agony and dread
Of that inevitable day when thou
Shall gasp thy last in pain, and cruel Law
Shall place his foot upon thy head and crush
Thee as thou wouldst the serpent in thy path,
In that hard, dark hour, from which in nature
Thou must shrink in thy fear that it ends all,
Or ushers thee into some dreadful state-
In that dark moment canst thou trust in these
Thoughts of men? And what hast thou to cheer thee
Along thy voyage to the Great Unknown?
Oh, for the faith that once was thine when thou
Didst hold thy simple child-like trust in God,
And didst not know the thoughts of wiser men!
Happy are they who still believe and trust,
Who do not guess how insecure might be
The base on which they build their tower of faith,
And should they know would still believe and trust
Unfaltering to the last. O my soul, 'tis
Thou and I who wander from the paths of peace
Where once we trod, and doubt the faith our fathers knew.
We pause and linger on the skirts of time
And space, and seek to penetrate the maze
Of the Unknowable. We break dull night
With C1'i6S for knowledge where no knowledge is.
O miserable, most miserable of men,
For we have missed the way and lost the light!
Great God, whom men have honored in the past,
Whose word endures through time in spite of doubt
And rings upon our ears-forgive, forgive,
And help Thine erring ones again to find
The peace of mind that comes in serving Thee.
Extend once more Thy mercy and Thy saving graceg
O shed abroad Thy comfort in our heartsg
Restore us to the hollow of Thy handg
And let us feel the glory of Thy love.

CBY ELMER H. DAVISQ
,K- TEL OMEHOVV nobody ever seemed to take Del-
? more seriouslyg but maybe that was because
SL he never seemed to take himself seriously.
For instance, Jack had a fine tenor voice,
but he wouldn't go to Glee Club practice
K- -4 often enough to get a place. It was the
same way with foot ball. I remember in my
Freshman year-J ack was a Sophomore then-he spoiled a
side line play in the Wabash game by stopping to catch Lucile
Farnham 's colors, which had blown out of her hand. The
coach benched him then and there, and he never reported for
practice again. Delmore had the name of being able to make
a more brilliant recitation on nothing than anybody else in
school, but I roomed with him three years and never caught
him studying. f'Wl1at's the use?" was his favorite remark.
So quite naturally people came to look on him as all right, in
a way-but after all, only Jack Delmore.
Yet there wasn't a pleasanter fellow in school. Jack was
enough of a pianist to rattle off the latest hit in the proper
style, and he could always lead a chorus or a quartette, or sing
a solo if nobody else would join him. He was the best dancer in
the town, he wore his clothes well and was always good-looking
in his own peculiar style. I-Ie was on the tennis courts a good
deal, and could play well when he wanted to-but I remember
one afternoon when he stayed away from a big match to help
out some green, bewildered Freshman that he found in the
library trying to get out a history paper. It was things like
this that showed Jack as he really was, but only a few of us
knew that side of him. To most of the college he was only a
pleasant, accomplished idler.
The first of his Senior year he did try to brace up and do
something. Some slighting remark of the Doctor's had come
to his ears, and he knew that the Doctor didn 't often misjudge
a man. We were sitting on the library steps one Sunday after-
noon watching the couples strolling over the campus. I had
almost gone to sleep, when suddenly I heard an exclamation
and looked up to see what was the matter. Jack was sitting
up with a more animated expression on his face than I had
ever seen there. 5
- HClyde," he said, "I'm going to do something this year."
' 'VVhat are you going to do ? ' ' I inquired, rather listlessly.
'tOh-things I " he burst out. "I'm tired of having people
say, 'Oh, that's only Jack Dehnore !' I don 't see why I ean't
do as much as some of these other fellows. Hang it all! I know
I've got it in me, and I'm going to bring it outf'
This outburst coming from Jack rather upset me. To tell
the truth, I had been influenced a great deal by his example,
and hadn't been doing as muchniyself as I should. Estelle
had been scolding me pretty hard about my indifference to
things in general, and when I told her that night that Jack
and I had decided to take a brace she agreed that tha.t was thc
thing to do.
"And," she added, 'tthat will make Jack pretty strong
with Lucile. I think she has been trying to stir him up. "
This suggested a matter about which we had all been
"How about it, Estelle?" I inquired. 'tDoes Lucile think
more of Jack that she does of Fred Skilton? "
"Oh,-I don 't know," she replied.
"You ought to know if anybody does. You know more
about Lueile than anybody else. "
'cWell," she admitted, "I do know a little, Clyde , but it 's
nearly all guess-work. Lucile hasn't told me much. She does
like Jack pretty well-I think better than she does Fred Skil-
ton. But then you know Lucile-she hasn't any use for a
fellow who d0esn't do anything and Skilton is so prominent
and so confident and so aggressive that he seems to her just
exactly what Jack ought to be, and isn't. "
"But Skilton-" I began, and then stopped. Only we
who had learned all about Skilton through frat affairs really
knew him as he was, and it was none of our business to tell it.
To the rest of the school he was the ideal college man-the
hero in baseball, football, basketball, the winner of the state
oratorical contest, a leading Y. M. C. A. worker, the president
of the Senior Class-in fact every position out in the lime-
light seemed to be filled by Skilton. The local paper chronicled
all his movements. Scarcely a month passed in which one or
the other of the Indianapolis papers did not publish his photo-
graph accompanying the notice of some new achievement. The
faculty admired Mr. Skilton, whose work, while never brilliant,
always seemed to show careful preparation. And so Skilton
had built up a reputation that was a part of the atmosphere of
the college-a reputation impressed by older students on the
new arrival in his first week of school and confirmed by Skil-
ton 's pleasant and apparently frank manner. Even Estelle,
who was ordinarily a pretty good judge of character, couldn't
see through the college hero, and if Lucile, to whom he had
been devoted ever since she first came to school, had any
suspicions, she kept them to herself. But to the few of us who
knew him intimately the hero was by no means heroic. We all
envied his athletic and oratorical ability, but we all knew how
thoroughly hypocritical and selfish he was, and there was
scarcely one of us who couldn't recall some stooping trick
played on him by the 'tideal college man." Still such things
couldn't be spoken of to outsiders, so this time, as often before,
I turned the conversation to something else.
Jack started in by reporting at football practice the next
afternoon, but here he found tha.t his reputation prevented
anybody from taking him seriously. The college paper started
a string of jokes, and every night the students on the side-lines
would kid him, till it came to be the school joke that Jack Del-
more was trying for the football team. And yet he really did
pretty well, but the coach couldnit forget his' past per-
formances, and when the first game was played Jack wasn 't
even a sub. Skilton was captain that year, and it was told to
his credit everywhere that Delmore, although a frat brother of
the captain, couldn't make the team. A few of us knew just
how things stood between Skilton and Delmore, but what
ought to have shown Skilton up, was the fact that Vincent
Farnham, Iiueile's younger brother, started the season at left
half, for Vince was no good at all.
That kid was the greatest burden of Lucile's life. She
thought more of him than almost any thing else on earth, but
he apparently delighted in doing everything that would dis-
appoint her. He started out by pledging Kappa Phi in his
first week of school, although Iiucile had always been the
strongest supporter that we had among the Thetas. I always
will believe that he did that out of pure meanness, but when
he soon began to drift into the worst set in college and town,
I think the trouble was more weakness of character than any
real viciousness. He spent money right and left and made a
hit with a certain class, who fiattered him to the limit. He was
actually proud of his conduct and rarely attempted to hide
it from Lucile, yet she thought the world and all of him, and
Skilton, who knew everybody 's weak point, was working along
the right line when he persuaded the coach to give him a
place. Vince held it until he got drunk on the Earlham trip
and was dropped. I
None of us will ever forget the football team of that fall-
how they cleaned up Earlham and Wabash at the beginning of
the season, ran all over Butler, and then to everybody 's amaze-
ment beat Notre Dame in a savage game and practically won
the state championship-for that was the year that Notre
Dame beat Indiana, and Wabash and Purdue had weak teams.
That stirred up every old grad and set the student-body wild,
so the Thanksgiving game with DePauw on the home grounds
brought out not only everybody in school, but crowds of
alumni and outside supporters. As Skilton was playing, Jack
took Lucile. Estelle and I went with them, and we four were
fortunate in shoving our trap close up to the sideline, where
we could see everything. Of course you know what happened.
The whole team played like demons, but Skilton's work sur-
passed anything ever seen on the field before. Jack yelled him-
self hoarse like everybody else, but at intervals I noticed the
same dull, disgusted look upon his face that had been there
most of the time since he had failed to make the team. His
determination to do things hadn't outlasted this first reverse,
and he had slipped back pretty much into the same old rut-
while Skilton, if he had been the hero of the school before, was
now its absolute idol.
I lost Jack after supper in the general excitement. A 40-
to-0 victory over DePauw deserved a fitting celebration, and it
certainly got one that night. I was with Vince Farnham early
in the evening, but soon he left meg and presently, to my dis-
gust, I saw him with a couple of town fellows, who, I happened
to know, belonged to the Goats. The Goats were an organiza-
tion whose down-town rooms were the scene of so much revelry
of all sorts that it was only a question of time till the police
would raid them, and it was known that any college fellow
caught in their rooms-none were positively known to belong
-would be fired at once. But I didn 't have much time that
night to worry about Lucile's brother.
That celebration will go down in history along with the
game that caused it. When the combined efforts of the police,
the sheriff and the fire department stopped it, most of the
crowd trooped over to the Gym, where the faculty held a kind
of a reception for the team. There Skilton continued his
triumphal progress on the shoulders of his friends for an
hour or more. Jack and Lucile and Estelle and I were to-
gether againg but she had scarcely a word for Jack and when
Skilton finally got away from the crowd and came up to us
looking ten times as confident and assured as usual, Jack talked
a.minute or two and then left.
Estelle and I drifted away in the crowd and didn 't see
them again during the reception. I took Estelle home to the
Theta House and Skilton and Lucile arrived just ahead of us.
As we came up Iiucile drew Estelle away and whispered some-
thing to her.
"Wliati Really?" screamed Estelle, and then she kissed
her and turned to me.
"Clyde, we're the first ones to congratulate these people.
They 're engaged."
I don't think that Lucile had meant for me to know,
but she lost her momentary look of vexation when I went
through a rather lame and lukewarm expression of my best
wishes. Estelle scolded me afterwards for my lack of fervor,
but it cut me pretty hard to see Skilton standing there smiling
and triumphant and to think of Iiucile throwing herself away
on him, while poor old Jack-
Ancouple of days later it was announced, and everybody
in school seemed pleased but Jack. He took it in his own
peculiar way. I think it was on the steps of the Science Hall
that I met him the day after it was announced.
"Well,' ' he said, "I s'pose you ,ve heard." I admitted it.
4'Skilton's in luck, " he went on, "I suppose people expect
me to play the heart-broken, rejected lover. I'd better be
rehearsing for the part.' '
That was Jack through and through-but while this
laughing attitude fooled nearly everybody, I knew him well
enough to see through it, and though he never admitted it,
even to me, I knew he was hit awfully hard.
I wasnit as intimate with Lucile that winter as I had
usually been. She and Estelle were constantly togetherg but
Skilton and I never could get along, so we didn't see any
more of each other than necessary. I finally had to tell Estelle
what I thought of Skilton, and after observing him awhile
from my point 0 view she agreed with me pretty well, but
apparently Lucile never discovered anything wrong with him.
Their plans were all made. After a. year of Harvard, Skilton
was to enter his father 's law office, with politics as a side-line,
and the wedding was to take place immediately after Lucile
graduated-she was a Junior then.
Jack went his usual round that winter, to all appearances
the same as ever. It was one night in February that I asked
him what he expected to do after commencement.
4'Oh, I don't know," he answered, "doesn't make a great
deal of difference what I do, I reckon. I haven't got any
relatives to disappoint. "
"Oh, cut it, Jack,', I said, Hdon't talklike a fool."
"Well, I take a practical view of the matter. I don 't
believe I'll ever amount to much anyway. 'Unstable as water,
thou shalt not eXcel.' That 's me, I guess. "
But finally I got him to tell me that he had a place
promised as one of the cartoonists on a Chicago paper.
'4It's not muchf' he said, Hbut I guess it 's about all I'm
good for," and all my indignant protests couIdn't get him to
take a different view of it. '
Matters were in this sort of shape when the test came.
One warm night in April Cabout 9:30, if I rcmembcrj, Jack
and I had just come back from the city. Estelle had asked us
to get her some music, so we dropped in at the Theta House
to deliver it. As she met us at the door we heard a hoarse sob-
bing inside, and she quickly explained.
"Vince Farnham was caught at a poker game tonight
when the police raided the Goats' rooms. He came straight
to Lucile when they let him go, and he's in there now crying
like a baby. Of course he'll be expelled, and it serves him
right-but poor Lucile! She's 'phoned for Fred," and at this
moment Skilton hurried up the walk.
We all went in together, and pretty soberly, for this was
certainly a serious matter. The Doctor blamed the Goats for
most of the bad influence around the college, and he had
declared again and again that any student known to have any
connection whatever with the crowd would be put out. None
of us felt sorry for Vince, but we knew how much he meant to
Lucile, and under the circumstances it wouldn't be safe even
to intercede for him. .
Lucile was perfectly white, but otherwise the same as
ever. But Vince had completely broken down. All his old
bravado and insolence was gone-he had forgotten that he had
ever Wanted to be a sport-he was just a kid in trouble, who
had run for help to his big sister.
Iiucile turned to Skilton as he entered. '
V "Fred," she said-and I had never seen her so beautiful
-"you'll go to the Doctor, won 't you? You have more in-
iiuence with him than any other student in school. You can
get .him to give Vince another chance."
Skilton turned red. ' 'Why Lucile, I'm afraid it wouldn't
do any good. You know when the Doctor has once made up
his mind he can 't be changed. " '
"Oh, but-Fred! You'll try it!" Her voice was still
"Why-er-see here, Lucile, it wouldn't be any use. The
Doctor has said he would expel anybody connected with the
Goats, and he means it. I couldnit do anything. "
"Fred l" Her voice was appealing. "Won't you do it ?-
for me ? "
"Why, Lucile, he'd throw me out. He'll be awfully mad
about this business. And in my position, I couldn't aiord to
mix up in it. There 'll be an awful scandal-and I'1n presi-
dent of the Y. M. C. A.-why, it would make an awful stir if
I got mixed up in this affair. I simply can 't afford to do it. "
It was out at last. Skilton, as I had known him for three
years, was just now becoming apparent. Iiucile straightened
up and spoke even more quietly than before.
"In other words, you think more of your reputation-of
your position as the hero of this school-than you do of me?"
"Of course not, Lucile. But all I mean is, that when it
would be useless anyway, I don't see why I should lose the
Doctor 's good opinion and risk my reputation-"
"Stop !" Lucile took off her engagement ring and with
an impassive face handed it to Skilton. 'iI'll go myself."
"'Wait a minute, Iiucile," interrupted Delmore quietly,
"I'1l speak to the Doctor-and what's more, I'll get him to let
We all stood stupefied. Jack was erect and commanding.
I-Iis ,voice had a snap and confidence in it that even I had never
heard before. Lucile stared at him.
"You, Jack? Vifhy-" but Delmore took Vince by the
arm and raised him up. t'Come,,' he said, "we'll go to the
Doctor now." And in a dead silence they left the house.
Presently Lucile aroused herself. l'Fred," she said, "you
may keep your ring. I'm glad I found out in time just how
utterly selfish you are. ' '
"Why, I-I-" but she cut him short.
"That's enough, good-night." And presently I, too, de-
parted still astounded at what had just happened, and wonder-
ing whether Delmore were indeed fulfilling his promise.
Sometime during the night I awoke to find Delmore pack-
ing his trunk. , 1
'4What's the matter?" I inquired rather sleepily.
"I'm leaving college-by requestj' he laughed. "Guess
I'll have to give up hope of a sheepskinf'
"VVhy-what in thunder-Doc must be on his ear. What 's
"I can 't tell you anything, old boy. Only this,-Vince
is going to get another chance." And not another word would
he say on the subject. I walked with him to the ea.rly morn-
ing train, and learned that he was going to Chicago to take
up his work, Then with a promise to write and another re-
fusal to say anything, he left me-but not the same as he had
been the day before. In a single night Jack had become a
man, and his face, aglow with courage and confidence at the
same time sober and of a kind of dignity, was far different
from that of the old Jack Delmore who had never, even by
his friends, been taken seriously.
As a result of the raid on the clubroom of the Goats two
fellows were expelled from school. It was believed that more
were members, but they held together well and refused to
betray each other. It was all done very quietly, and few
people knew much about it-but somehow it began to get
around that Delmore had been expelled on account of some
connection with the Goats. I iinally concluded that this idea
must have sprung up solely because no reason was given for
But Vince Farnham was not expelled. Very few knew
of his connection with the Goats, and fewer still knew the
reason for his sudden change of attitude, but from that night
Vince became a model of behavior. His conduct couldn't
have been better, and Lucile at last began to see him doing
something to repay her devotion.
The poor girl certainly needed some consolation. She
stood it all like the thoroughbred that she was, but it was a
pretty severe shock to her. She did at one time think alot of
Skilton, and it hurt her terribly to see him fail when brought
to the test. But outwardly she was as brilliant and vivacious
as ever, and though everybody knew that the engagement was
broken, very few had even an inkling of the reason.
Skilton won his usual laurels on the baseball team that
spring. As president of the Senior Class he was the most
prominent figure of commencement week, and again and again
he was pointed out to visitors and alumni as "the best man in
school." But to the little group who had heard him that night
at the chapter house, the college hero was no longer heroic, he
had been weighed in the balance and found wanting. He had
failed signally, and through pure selfishness. And he gradu-
ated knowing that at least four people knew him thoroughly-
that to at least four people he was anything but the Hideal
A dozen times I tried to find out what Jack had told the
Doctor that night, but Lucile, when questioned by Estelle,
said that Vince had promised Jack to tell no one. So she was
as much in the dark as we, as to the reason for Jack 's expulsion
and Vince's reprieve. But after that she never mentioned his
name. And in his letters, though he frequently sent messages
to Estelle, he never mentioned Lucile. And so the summer
passed. Jack liked his work in Chicago: he wrote of frequent
promotions. But when Lucile and Estelle and I returned for
our Senior year the double mystery was still unsolved-and it
remained unsolved till the winter term.
But in February the revivals began, and the sermons,
learned but clear, scholarly yet effective, touched more than
one of the student-body, and among these was Vince Earn-
ham. One night he went up in response to the invitation. The
next day he had a. long talk with the Doctor. That night, as
Estelle and I sat in the parlor of the Theta House, Lucile
" Clyde, " she said, ' 'have you J ack 's address GZ" I started
to give it to her, but she interrupted.
"I want to tell you something, " she said, her eyes shining.
"Vince told all about it today. Jack went to the Doctor that
night and told him that he had led Vince into his dissipations
-that he had bought Vince his first drink, and so on. You
know how convincingly he can tell a story, and the Doctor
never liked him and never knew him well enough to see
through it. So he believed the whole confession. Jack per-
suaded him that it was his influence that had put Vince on the
wrong track, so he got the punishment. It was the only way
to save Vince. Think of it-he deliberately threw away his
college career and his good name for my sake, and wouldn't
even let us know about it. Vince told the Doctor the truth
today, and now I want to write to Jack and thank him from
the bottom of my heart."
So the secret was out at last, and I'll admit that even I
should not have thought Delmore capable of it. A few days
later the Doctor called me into his office.
"Mit Wilson," he began, HI presume that by this time
you are acquainted with the facts in Delmoreis case. I think
I can say that I seldom misjudge a man, but I will confess
that in this case I certainly did. As you know, I have no use
for a lazy man, and this had always prejudiced me against
Delmore: and so, I am sorry to say, I never really knew him.
So it came about that I readily believed that night, a story
which I should have seen through in an instant. But fortu-
nately it was not too late to make amends, and I wanted to
tell you that I have asked Mr. Delmore to come down in June
and get his diploma."
Well, there isnlt much more to tell. Delmore came back,
and no one who was there is ever likely to forget the welcome
he received. For a week he was more truly the hero of the
school than Skilton had ever been.
Before the end of the week Lucile was wearing another
engagement ring, and though a few, who hadnit quite got used
to taking Jack seriously, seemed to doubt whether the affair
would last, I didn't. For the indolent, cynical Delmore of
old had vanishedg and in his place there was a man.

undoubtedly fictitious names, but we can 't

before selling to Mason. How do we know that he and two
dozen others have fulfilled the law? There 's just no way but
for someone to go and see-then, we have testimony of some

The Judge stood with the brief in hand and glanced
sharply over his spectacles at Dunwoodie, the junior partner,
who sat tapping his pencil on the edge of the desk with a dull
regularity that was maddening.
"But it's a long way over the range, Judge, and there 's
nobody to send. I tried it once before, you know. Those two
trappers from Crane County went out for me. One of them
nevercame back, and the other showed up at Shawnee Bottom,

"And not have very far to look, either, " I interposed.
'fIVhat's that '?" asked the Judge turning his austere
finger until it indexed me. I-Iis voice was sharp and betrayed
his irritation, yet there was a kindly smile in the eyes that
looked me over casually.
HI will go. I don't mind a few weeks camping in the
And it was, to my mind, an inviting prospect-a month
or more in the wilds. I had dreamed of it from childhood-a
trip into the heart of the mountains.
"Afraid of ghosts?" rather contemptuously.
HNever have been. "
'fWell, get ready. We'll let you go. There 'll be a guide
here for you in the morning. I think I can get a Swede."
I slammed the cover over the typewriter and bolted out of
the door, the Judge bellowing his characteristic stream of pro-
fanity after me.
We had paddled two days up the Raven 's Claw, and had
come out on one of those clear, blue lakes, surrounded by the
stolen timber land, which lines each side of the valley for
miles. The suggestion of trout, mountain trout, was almost
irresistible, but the sun, just disappearing behind the hills to
the left, made us consider the question of placing our camp.
The portage of the day had been long, the pull against the
stream tedious and difficult, hence, the anticipations of sup-
per and the evening pipe were sweet to us, the toil-worn.
h "Gus," I said, Hhow about the little clearing on the east
"I tank dad be all righd. "
'zWell, we 'll land there, then. "
We soon had our tire, and Gus was frying the bacon and
making coffee, while I gathered wood and set the tent.
"'Isn't this the Lake of Ghosts they told us about at Shaw-
nee Bottom?" I asked, dropping an armload of boughs and
turning to the Norwegian.
"I reckon saw, " he grunted without looking up.
"'This looks like a good place to pitch the camp until we
have looked things over round here. "
"I tank saw, yassf'
Darkness settled about us. The lonesomeness of the forest
closed in, hushing all save the wild sounds of night. The
lake lay spread out before us, a dark, placid surface. The
trees made a jagged black outline for some distance out from
the bank. The snow crowning the mountain on the right, seen
through the smoke of our fire, looked like a white rag flutter-
ing in the distance. The blaze of pine knots flickered at our
feet, and "Bugs," the Norwegianls dog, curled up before it
content to sleep with both eyes closed. The place seemed
secure and peaceful. It was an ideal night to lie flat on one's
back, and watch the stars come out-and to dream of home,
of the old life-the East. Gus persisted in interrupting my
pictures with comparisons and tales of old Norway-tales
which I would fain listen to now. Then, I was too much con-
cerned with my own reflections.
The next day was spent in tracing and investigating the
timber claims. I took a picture of the snow three feet deep
where Doc. I-Ianmer had sworn that he had planted his straw-
berry patch-and it was mid-July. This, I was sure, was
only a sample of the things we should no doubt discover. The
case of the Government versus Mason and Company began to
look sprightly, indeed.
We were late in returning, and dusk caught us midway
upon the water as we paddled homeward across the lake. We
were nearing the bank, when Gus dropped his paddle and
uttered an ejaculation of surprise. The dog bristled up, sat
on his haunches in the center of the canoe, then lifted his
jaws into the air, and howled most mournfully and unearthly.
I recovered the lost paddle as we glided by.
"Look!7' said Gus in a hoarse whisper, and pointed into
the dark strip where the trees- shaded the edge of the water.
I saw it. It seemed something white, vapory, phosphorescent,
resembling a human head and shoulders gliding along the
surface of the water. '
"What is it?" I demanded.
"I tank it wuss the ghos',' ' said Gus, shuddering.
At this moment it disappeared. Poor Gus still trembled,
his teeth chattered, and his arms hung limp and lifeless. He
was helpless with fright. Was this the Norwegian who had
laughed with me about the tales of the people of Shawnee
Bottom, who had ridiculed the possibility of ghosts, who had
defied everything under heaven and above hell? I'll confess
that my own hair stood on end for a moment while the ap-
parition confronted us. I breathed a sigh of relief when it was
gone, and was ready to believe that it was a white stump or
rock along the bank, which seemed to move only because we
were moving. I thought it a phenomenon of motion much
after the manner of the rolling panorama of earth to the
aeronaut in his balloon.
I pulled to the landing, and dragged the poor, muddled
Gus to camp. I tried to reason with him. It was useless. He
was morose, gloomy, and quite beyond the point of being in-
fluenced. It was that stubborn clinging to impressions mani-
fest in his race. He helped with the preparation of supper
nervously, casting backward glances over his shoulder contin-
ually. The snapping of a twig startled him.
"Gus," I said, 'fyou're a blamed fool. There are no
ghosts. Pull yourself together."
"Law, why don'd you say, 'Gus, dere are no hell 9' I know
-they wuss. I see ghos'. You too."
"Well, what if there is?"
"Dtha' ghos' come fer me."
An involuntary jerk twisted him into a comical posture.
I laughed outright at his convulsion, and could not help it.
'fDon' laff. He come fer me."
There was something so haggard in his expression, so
terror-stricken in his eyes that I checked my merriment short.
Was Gus going crazy? I remembered Mr. Dunwoodie's Words
in the little ramshackle, fly-besieged law office in Shoshone.
I began to see the serious side of things.
"Who will come for you I? " I asked eyeing the poor wretch
He iss my cousin-he iss deadf'
'4Why should he come for you? Here, eat some supper.
Come out of this."
I can'd. Oh, mine Gott! Albertlw
"Tell me, what ls the trouble?"
He sat motionless a long time, struggling within. I had
smoked my first pipe when he turned to me with the look of
a frightened animal.
"You no tell 'bout Albert?"
"I haven 't anything to tell."
I-Ie dropped his face from me, shrugged his shoulders.
started to speak and choked. I went to him and put my hand
on his shoulder.
"See here, old boy," I said, "what is this about Albert?
I can keep still. Tell me. H
"Albert,'l he sobbed, HI kill him-in Chicago."
It was a wretched tale he told me brokenly. As I re-
member it now, I think I did not blame him very severely for
killing Albert. I sought chiefly to soothe him and get him to
sleep. I was confident that morning would waken him with
a new grip on himself. '
We were dozing, probably asleep, when the growls of
"Bugs" roused us to sitting posture. I had scarcely opened
my eyes when I saw it flitting towards us through the trees.
It reached the edge and stood a moment, before crossing the
open space between us, white and ghastly against the dark line
of pines. Gus shrieked. The dog crept against me, whining
hoarsely and terrified. My hair rose "like quills upon the
fretful porpentinef' My blood seemed to freeze with each
chill that ran down my spinal column. Paralyzing fear swept
over me and left me helpless, numb.
HI wuss comin', Albert. Gott forgive I"
He staggered toward the ghost, his arms outstretched in
trembling supplication. He fell at its very feet. The spectre
bent over him, and its bony hands clasped round his throat.
I heard him pleading incoherently. As in a trance or horrid
nightmare, I watched them. Poor Gus relapsed limply, and
apparently lifeless. The ghost hovered about him a moment,
then slipped into the forest as silently and as warily as it
For a half-minute I did not move. Either I could not
will, or strength had failed me. My mouth was dry and
parched. Electric needles seemed pricking my forehead and
eyes. I began to crawl toward my comrade, and had gone
several feet before I could stand up. The dog preceded me,
sniffed all about his master, then whined and ran back to me.
I reached Gus at last and bent over him. There was no pulse
at his wrist-he was dead.
In that moment I suffered the pangs of hell. Alone, miles
from the habitation of man, in the lonesomest valley in the
ranges, on the shores of a haunted lake, amid the somber gloom
'of spectral pines-aloneg with a dog and a dead man.
Should I ever get back? Woiild Judge McCrury believe
in ghosts now? Or, would men think that I had quarreled
with Gus and killed him? The full horror of the situation
fell upon me like a blow. It choked, dazed, bewildered me.
As I bent over the prostrate form, staring about me each
moment in the dread anticipation of the return of the spectre,
my eyes came at last to rest upon the foot track beside the
poor Norwegian. VVas it mine, or his, or neither? I examined
it. I tried it with my foot, but it did not lit. ' 'Bugsn placed his
nose to the ground and scented the trail of the ghost to the
edge of the wood. I followed aimlessly almost, perhaps
mechanically, or from a half-formed, morbid fear of losing
even the company of a dog. In that mood I think I could have
followed a snake to be near some living thing.
We came suddenly upon the bank of the lake. I heard
the splash of a paddle, and the scrape of a canoe against the
bushes. Never have I heard sounds more portentous, more
alarming than those of an enemy in the wood at night, and
never any more welcome than these in their assurance of foes,
corporeal. 'I became myself again. In the moment succeed-
ing the sounds, I drew from my pocket the little electric flash
light, which I carried, and pressed the connection. It re-
vealed the startled faces of two men kneeling in a canoe. Be-
side one of them there was a skull and a pile of something
white. The next moment a shot rang out. They missed my
light. I released the spring and felt for my revolver, intend-
ing to return their lead. It was lying beside the camp-fire.
They shoved off in the darkness, and I stood vainly wishing
that I might follow.
Far away up the mountainside a panther screamed out
a desolate cry that pierced my very soul. VVith faltering
footsteps I returned to the camp. The faithful dog watched
me draw a blanket over the silent form of his master, and
stood guard when I sat down with my head resting in my
hands to wait wearily for the coming of the dawn.
Cambridge, Mass. E. R. Niciioiis, 'O7.
H, you look simply stunning already," called
out Christopher Stanley to his room-mate,
Jack Harland, "you're surely going to pop
the question this afternoon, the way you 'rc
togging up. You 've been looking at your-
self in that mirror for fully an hour."
"Well, if you really want to know,
Chris," returned J ack, "I'm going to do that very stunt this
afternoon. I'm going driving and the next time you see me
I'll be an engaged man or a heart-broken one."
"Or both," broke in his companion. "Take my advice, old
man, and don't take it too hard if she turns you down, for
you'd better have a broken heart now than a broken head after
you get her."
"Shut up, Chris!" said Jack, unceremoniously, "you
haven 't any more sentiment about you than this pesky collar
has, or you wouldn't say such stupid things. "
"A pretty good comparison, Jack, for I see it objects
seriously to going around your neck-so it can '13 he very senti-
'4Some of the stubborness will be taken out of it before
I get back, I'll bet, for it 'll be wilted down to a finish."
-USO will your sentiment, I predict, so your comparison
wasn't so apt after all. "
"Seriously, now, Chris, this thing has gone on about long
enough, I can scarcely eat or sleep, let alone study, so I'm
going to have it settled this afternoon. My mid-term grades
were simply fierce and the Greek professor told me if I didn 't
do some good, stiff work from now on I'd Hunk in his depart-
ment. Yesterday when the Mathematics professor called on
me I jumped as if a wasp had stung me and had to ask her to
repeat her question and then I did get stung, I simply can't
do anything until I know my fate."
'iBut make a fool of yourself againll' broke in Christo-
"VVell, I do seem to do pretty well along that line," ad-
mitted Jack, Ubut just wait 'til you find your affinity, if
you ever do, and I'll venture you 'll lose your even, stately
poise once in your life. I rather feel sorry for you now, though,
to think that you can 't participate in this afternoon 's
"Save your sympathy for yourself for you'll probably
need it before the day is over and for land-sake do go or I'll
never get this lesson. I've read this one sentence most a
hundred times already and don 't know what it is yet. I know
it starts out, 'but if the nobility and clergy were comparatively
speaking, '-and that's all I can get, I think if Jack Harland
wasn't continually speaking, I could perhaps fathom the
meaning of this sentence, however. "
"Well, you can have your old French History to your-
self for a few hours now. I'm going to study and this after-
noon do a little research work."
"Well, good day and luck to you, with your precipitation
you'll probably not get the proper reaction. "
But Jack did not get the benefit of this parting thrust.
He had already dashed downstairs, out into the street, had
turned the corner, and was heading toward the livery stable,
when with his impetuosity he nearly ran over a small lad, who
seemed in an equally big hurry.
c'Say, mister,', said the boy breathlessly, "do you know
Mr, Jack Harland? 'Cause if you do l've got a letter for
him." I S
A"I guess you ran into the right man, speaking literally-
sonny," said Jack taking the letter and handing a dime to the
boy, who went away pleased to have delivered his parcel with
so little difficulty.
"Who the dickens can this be from ? " muttered Jack, not
recognizing the handwriting. He broke open the letter and
read as follows:
Dear Mr. Harland: '
Having a more important engagement this afternoon,
which cannot well be deferred, I beg you to excuse me from the
"H'm! 'more important engagement,," grumbled Jack
under his breath. ' CI suppose she didn lt know that the ride this
afternoon was to decide whether she would be Mrs. Harland
or not. "
What under the sun could she be doing this afternoon
to make her call off her engagement with him? This was the
first time she had ever done so. His question was answered
sooner than he expected for looking up he saw a touring car
dash by in which was seated the object of his affections by the
side of a dignified looking young man, who was dividing his
attentions between the young lady and the car. Jack could
scarcely believe his eyes. So this was the engagement which
had took precedence to his own. She had been deceiving him
after all, and this was an old lover about whom he had never
heard, turning up at a most inopportune time and snatching
his own sweetheart almost from his very arms. Perhaps this
new aspirant was bent on the same action he had meant to
perform that afternoon. The very thought of it turned him
cold with jealousy. He was yet straining his eyes watching
the touring car when it drew up in front of a business house
down-town, which Jack rightly guessed to be a florist. He saw
his hated rival alight, pass into the building and soon emerge
bearing flowers, which he presented to Miss Ashburn.
So this was to be the result of the afternoon he had so
beautifully pictured in his mind, was it D? Should his little
comedy be thus marred by the villain carrying off the heroine
before the play began? Not if he knew himself, he would con-
tinue as he had planned, and play his drama through to the
end, only with a slightly changed Dramatis Personm. His
heroine must be supplied by some other. He did not change his
course, but quickened his pace and soon arrived at the livery
stable where he ordered the best turnout they possessed, to be
prepared immediately. This having been done he jumped into
the vehicle, snatched up the reins, and started swiftly out of
the barn and down the pavement. He drove to the home of
Madge Burnell, a classmate and chum of the lady with whom
he had intended to spend the afternoon, and somewhat un-
ceremoniously asked her to go driving with him. Madge, who
had often times been made the confidant of Jack, and who
pretty thoroughly understood his impetuous disposition, acqui-
esced and the two were soon driving between green fields with
the fragrance of early spring flowers floating up to greet them
from the road-side. Jack had scarcely spoken since they had
left the little city, almost an hour ago, but since Madge found
ample enjoyment in surveying the newly awakened nature,
with its sunshine, birds and trees, and Jack seemed to be
entirely engrossed with some idea, which was occupying the
whole of his mind, there was little embarrassment occasioned
by this continued silence. Suddenly he seemed to have reached
the conclusion of his pondering, and the little bay horse on the
side next to him must have thought the result of his meditation
rather unpleasant, for Jack snatched the whip from its place
and without warning struck him a resounding whack and the
horses were soon fiying over the road at a terrible rate of
speed. Madge looked somewhat surprised, but was a little un-
prepared for what followed.
"Miss Burnell, will you be my wife?" said Jack, im-
t'Why! I guess I'll have to say what they all say, 'this
is rather sudden'," returned Madge, an expression half of
astonishment, half of amusement, covering her face.
"What will you do if I refuse to grant the little favor?,'
, "I suppose I should say I will shoot myself or throw
myself into the river," he answered recklessly, "but I hardly
think I'd take the trouble to do either."
"Then I supposef' she said, a mischievous twinkle coming
into her eyes, "if I can't get rid of you by shooting or drown-
ing, I'll have to marry you and starve you to death or some-
thing of the sort." I
"Oh, I guess that isn't absolutely necessary," she con-
tinued, for he was preparing, as if in duty bound to kiss her,
Hespecially as we are on the public highway, and in broad
daylight. ' '
Unlike most proverbial lovers, he did not press matters
further along this line.
Not to be outdone by his rival in the earlier part of the
evening, he stopped at the florist on his return and bought ten
dollars, worth of American Beauty roses for his companion.
She suggested that a less pretentious and consequently less
expensive bunch of flowers would have done quite as well, but
as he did not seem in a mood for argument-she accepted-them
without further protest.
That evening as he returned to his room he had been
conscious of passing near Miss Ashburn, who was now out
walking with her companion of the afternoon and he had heard
her call to him, but he had pretended not to hear and passed
on. Wheii he reached his room he found his room-mate seated
in an armchair with his feet in another, diligently working out
his lessons. Christopher looked up inquiringly as Jack
"Well," said the former, since Jack did not seem to be in
a communicative mood, "did she say yes and tumble into your
arms as they usually do? Are you engaged or broken-hearted?
Upon my life you look as though anything might have hap-
"Didn't I tell you that I would be engaged when I re-
turned?,' broke out J ack, impatiently.
'4Yes, but Napoleon said he would wipe out any army on
earth with his 'invincibles' and met his YVaterloo, and I
wouldn't bc afraid to bet a Sundae you met yours this after-
noon, from the humor you're in. Are you afraid to ask old
man Ashburn for his daughter?"
"Who said anything about being engaged to Miss Ash-
burn ?" broke in Jack, almost angrily.
"Who else should you be engaged to but Miss Ashburn,
pray tell me. You have done nothing but dream of her the
entire college year,'l returned Christopher, undisturbed by
the rising ire of his room-mate.
"Well, since you seem determined to know," said Jack,
"I asked Madge Burnell to be my wife and she consented."
Christopher shrank back as though he had received a blow
and without saying a word pulled his house slipper from his
foot and threw it at the head of his companion with all his
might. The latter barely escaped the full force of the blow by
quickly ducking to the floor.
"What the deuce is the matter with you?'l screamed out
J ack, "are you going crazy?"
"No, but you are," muttered Christopher, "and I have a
great mind to let you have the mate to that shoe."
Instead, he dressed for walking and went out, and Jack
In an hour both boys were again seated in their room.
Jack had come in a little earlier than his companion. The
countenance of Christopher had greatly changed. Instead of
the scowl which was there when he left the room, his face was
full of suppressed amusement. Jack, however, was more de-
jected than before-if possible. I-Ie had, in his walk, come
face to face with Marion Ashburn, who had greeted him
- "Oh, you tardy fellow! You've come just a little too
late! I wanted you to meet my brother, who has just gone.
He is the one who is the civil engineer, and is just now making
a trip in his touring car from his omce in Kansas City to the
main office in Washington, and came slightly out of his way,
in order to give me a surprise, and spend the afternoon with
me. I told him I had an engagement to ride with you this
afternoon, and he wrote a note to you, which I suppose you
received. I thought, since we knew each other so well, you
would not be greatly disappointed, since we can go riding most
a.ny one of a dozen afternoons in the near futuref'
Jack Harland's heart gave a. great bound. So she rea.lly
did care for him. She had not discarded him after all. Her
brother had written that clumsy note he had received in the
afternoon. Everything else was now forgotten in the thought
that perhaps she did care for him. Soon in his impetuosity he
was telling her the story he had intended for her during the
drive. He was not an indifferent speaker now, and it can
rightly be supposed that he did not have an indifferent auditor,
for when he left her at her father 's door a few minutes later
his face was fairly beaming with joy. But suddenly he thought
of his other engagement, and his countenance fell.
"Dupe! Villain! Fool !" were some of the complimentary
terms he applied to himself. What was he to do? He had
entirely forgotten his rash act of the afternoon in the absolute
joy at finding himself mistaken in Miss Ashburn 's attitude
toward him. I-Ie had asked Miss Burnell to be his wife, he was
engaged to her, and he would marry her if it killed him. He
had no right to make the last proposal, for his hand was no
longer his to offer.
It was somewhat in this state of mind that he arrived at
his room. It was no wonder then that he wore a troubled ex-
pression on his face. ,
The two companions had been seated for some minutes
in absolute silence, when there was a knock on the door and
the landlady passed in a "special delivery" letter for Mr. Jack
Harland, stating that it had just been brought and that she
had acknowledged the receipt, not knowing positively that he
Jack took the letter eagerly, opened it and read as
My Dear Mr. Harland:
I When I consented to be your wife this afternoon I forgot
to mention the fact that I am already engaged to another
gentleman. Thinking that this might make a material differ-
ence, I beg you to release me from the engagement.
Jack no sooner read this than he gave a shout that would
have put to shame a Comanche Indian. He passed the letter
over to Christopher, who scarcely looked at it.
'I wonder who the fellow can be, who is engaged to the
dear girl," said Jack rapturiously, "I'd certainly give him a
'set 'em up.' "
'I guess I'll take that 'set 'em up,' " said Christopher,
'land I'm ready for your congratulations also."
Jack was too much amazed to speak, and after standing
silent for a moment grasped his companion 's hand and
4'Chris, you're a ehump, and I'm the blindest fool in the
I would not ask that each day be serene
As summer, nor that skies be bright as noon,
Rather the clouds should bring the tempest soon
Upon my path, with now and then the sheen
Of lightning 's flash to pierce the clouds between.
Yea, e'en the desert path at heat of noon
I would not shun, nor turn my face from gloom
Of sorrow 's night. I'd make my record clean
Before the Judge of all. Each day a smile
Woiild light my face, each noon a kindly word
Would grace my lips, and blessings fall meanwhile
Upon my fellows. Night would find me gird
All round about with strength renewed in trialg
Witli courage strong I'd live in deed and word.

LEROY XV. HANNA, '09.
S I sit here by the window,
And watch the blue haze fall
All about the towers and turrets
And the old vine-covered wall,
'Tis not sorrow comes to greet me,
And not joy I wish to know,
'Tis fancies, idle memories
Of the days of long ago,
Crowding, crowding in upon me,
Wliile I dream and ponder here
Like some long forgotten music
Falling sweet upon the ear.
Vlhen the twilight deepens round me,
And the stars come out once more,
Then my fancy gently leads me
To the peaceful woodland shore,
WhG1'G again I see the glinting
Streams of light athwart the lakeg
Feel the row-boat dancing lightly,
Careless in the steamer is wake,
Hear again the laughing voices
Of the rowers homeward bound,
And the deep-toned curfew ringing,
Walzing mellow echoes round.
But still to me the memory,
As I shoved the skiff along,
Of a fairy nymph-like maiden
And her gently carolled song
Is as sweet as were the iiowers
That I plucked to deck her hair.
Still I hear her silv'ry laughter,
J oyous music free from care.
Still I see her in the shadow,
As we stood beneath the pine,
VVhen I told her that I loved her,
And she whispered, "I am thine. "
Now with dusk the blue shades gatl
And come stealing to my room
. I . O
Somber spirits threatening night-time,
Shrouding all my thoughts in gl
Yet I love this melancholy,
For it takes me to her grave
Far away upon the lakeside,
Whei'e the summer grasses wave,
VVhere the flowers of spring time blossom,
Vfhere the oak trees cast the leaf,
And the snows of winter, drifting,
I Pile their weight upon my grief.

Franklin College Librar
UR beautiful library building, made possible
by gift from Mr. Elbert Shirk and family
of Peru, Indiana, was erected in 1903. It
is just south of the main building, so is
very convenient for study between recita-
tions. The light, airy reading room is very
attractive in its oak furnishings, as may be
proven by the many students who gladly spend spare moments
within its walls. We are glad, too, that the townspeople find
our library helpful when doing research work.
We now have over 16,900 volumes. The lines of general
literature, history, and science, together with the different
classes of government publications, are especially valuable be-
cause quite full. Each year new books are added with a view
to supplementing work given in the class rooms by the profes-
sors, At the same time, as far as possible, the general collec-
tion is enlarged by adding desirable works of travel, art, re-
ligion and fiction.
The card catalogue and the system of classification make
easy the finding of books sought for and so serve as time
savers. The librarian's effort is to simplify the arrangement
so that students may feel at home among the books, being
quite able to help themselves to anything desired. In search-
ing for something they want, they may find things unthought
of before which will inspire them with lasting interest. For
this reason the college library should not be the place for re-
quired reading only. An interest aroused by general reading
will lead the student is thought out in various directions, so
tending to make his education a liberal one.
The bound periodicals prove a source of much help when
considering subjects of popular discussion, and the current
periodicals, of which our library has an excellent selection,
keep the reader in touch with the progress of the day.
That the library atmosphere may be genial, inspiring, and
in every way helpful, and that it may engender perfect ease
and freedom in the use of books is the wish of all who have its
workings in hand.

Association was formed. A new constitution and by-laws were
drawn up and over one hundred students joined at the first

Our athletic field, situated just south of the campus, is
an ideal park for athletic games. lt is large, level and always
in the pink of condition.
The greatest aid to our athletics is our new gymnasium
which has been described in another part of this volinne. The
large upper fioor is large enough for a basket ball field and an
audience of five hundred people. The shower baths and
swimming pool are unexcelled by any college gymnasium in
the state. VVe feel proud to have such a gymnasium for our
athletic teams to train in and for the use of the visiting teams.

It was shown that Franklin had a fighting team when they
held the strong DePauw University eleven to a score of -I to 0.
Near the close of the second half, Tucker, Hall Indiana end,"
made a place kick from the thirty yard line. This was the

October 12.-Winona Technical Institute O. Franklin 16.
On October 12 Franklin defeated the strong Winona

features of the game were the long end runs of Duggan and
Captain Boone. Franklin made her touchdowns in the first
half and played a punting game during the second half.

The students of the College felt real proud of their team

the championship of the state and, taking this into view,
Franklin made a good showing against the University eleven.

October 26.-Earlham College 5: Franklin 0.
The hardest fought game of the season was played with
Earlham 'on Franklin field October 26. A hard rain fell dur-

second half a punt by Bryan was blocked and Earlham secured
the ball on the ten yard line and in a few downs pushed the
ball over the only touchdown of the game. Ditmars played a
star game for Franklin.
November 4.-Butler College 0. Franklin 0.
In the game with Butler, on November 4, Franklin lost
an opportunity of scoring in the second half by fumbling the

score. It was a fitting end for a successful season.

THE BASE BALL TEAM-1908
Although the base ballteam has fairly begun its season in
earnest, the prospects for a winning team could not look
better. Manager Bryan has the best schedule of any manager
in the state. He has secured the services of James Barton,
of the Brooklyn Nationals, to coach the team and, under his
direction, the team is developing into a bunch of sta.rs. Cap-
tain Beam, who is the mainstay in the box, has a list of twenty
to thirty candidates on the diamond each day.
April 4.-Franklin O. Louisville M. H. S. 5.
The first game of the season was played on Franklin field
with the Louisville Male High School on April 4. Coach
Barton gave nineteen men a try-out, which accounts for the
result of the score. Captain Beam was put in the box the last
few innings and had the visitors at his mercy. Boone and
Brown, at first a.nd third, showed up well for the home team.

The VVebsters celebrated Hallowe'en with a barn party
minus the barn. The hall was decorated with fodder and
lanterns. They had the fortune teller, ghost stories, appropri-
ate refreshments, such as pumpkin pies, baked beans, sand-
wiches, pickles, doughnuts, etc. Messrs. McCracken and Hanna

platform in front of the hall was banked with ferns, behind
which sat the musicians-violinist and harpist. Each plate
was marked by a neat name card, and by means of these the
banqueters found their places. The favors consisted of mar-
guerites and hearts, hand decorated, with the profile of a beau-
tiful leap year maiden, and on the reverse side the following:

6. This evening Indiana 'Delta of Phi Delta Theta gave to
their friends an evening of entertainment such as they have seldom
enjoyed. The entertainment consisted in form of a theater party
and dinner at English's. The crowd inet at the interurban station
where a special car was waiting for them, which carried them to
Indianapolis. The play which they witnessed was ' 'Mary's Lamb"
and only those who have seen Richard Karl, can fully appreciate
the treat which they received. After the play the party was taken
into the cafe where an elaborate dinner was served. The table
was beautifully decorated with palms and flowers and the menu
cards were very pretty, having the Phi Delt coat of arms at the
top. An orchestra furnished delightful music during the dinner.
6. The presentation of the Mendelssohn trio in celebration
of Founderis Day of Sigma Alpha Epsilon in the First Baptist
Church this evening, was one of the most delightful and joyous
occasions in recent years and the trio was heartily received by the
members of the fraternity and their invited friends to the num-
ber of six hundred. The trio is composed of Miss Nettie Jackson,
reader, Mrs. Lena B. Jackson, violinist, and Miss Louise Griewe,
pianist. The program was a varied one, ranging from the artistic
to the most popular selections. The readings of Miss Jackson
were received with great applause and she was forced after each
number to respond to encores. She is beyond question the ablest
reader that has appeared before a Franklin audience in years.
She is particularly strong in the rendition of child verses. Her
manner is one of ease and her interpretations true to life. Miss
Griewe and Mrs. Jackson are artists of no mean ability and their
numbers were of a high order and the audience showed its appre-
ciation by recalling them several times. The t1'io was introduced
by H. C. VVhitcomb, and at this time expressed the fraternity's
gratification and pleasure in having the large concourse of friends
with them to enjoy the event in celebration of the great day of
S. A. E.
7. Mr. Chki lectured in the chapel. Doctor Bryan an-

This is always a busy month at Franklin. The campus
is beautiful at this time and the cases are fully developed.
Do you know what a college 'ffcasef' Well, it is a little
different thing from real love-in fact, it is not just like any-
thing else in real life or anything found elsewhere. VVhen
they begin, he carries her books as they walk home together,
and they walk real slow. The farther the case goes the slower
they walk. When they get in the Rusniisel-Lyons stage they
scarcely move at all. We watched them coming home from
church one night, and when measured by the telephone pole,
they moved over one block of pavement in just five minutes
and thirty-three seconds. This is a specific case, but it is a
good example of the general thing. They don't all get this
bad. If the girl stays at the Dorm, she can have regular dates
Sunday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Then, if
they get along real well and want to be together oftener, they
can go to prayer meeting Wednesday nights and walk home
together. They can work the same thing Thursday nights-go
to Y. W. and Y. M. and go to the Dorm via the soda fountain,
Jefferson Street, south on Forsythe Street, west again, oh,
around and around, approaching the Dorm as the limit yet
never quite reaching it, as many times around asis propor-
tionate to the strength of the case. Any afternoon can be
spent in strolling. Out to Lover ls Lane is the best place, for
it has years of precedent back of it and is surrounded with
the romantic atmosphere of generations of just such scenes as
are occurring in our day. The air is balmy, the grass is young
and tender, the flowers are fragrant, the road is shady and
secluded, and the birds are making love. Ideal environment
for cases! The vacant hours are spent together usually: if
sheand he are taking the same line of work it is a great help
for that gives them a good excuse-they can ' 'study together."
They usually develop, about this time, an extreme fondness for
Mr. McCoy's flower beds and must go and look at them a long
time every day. If they can 't possibly get along with seven
dates a week, they either have to petition the good Lord to put
in an extra day or quit college altogether. Studies interfere
very materially with college cases. The faculty is considering
the advisability of excusing such afflicted ones from regular
work and give them full credit for their Spring work. It is
hard on the health to spend long hours in study with the mind
and heart afar. The best we can hope for as Juniors, the
heirs of the famous .'O8's, is to walk in their footsteps and
graduate with as many real cases as they are doing. Quite a
number are beginning this year so as not to be so unexpe-
rienced next year. a

green nature. COf course, this would be one and the same in
some cases.j Everyone knows how the Hall-VVright case will
come out. There is only one end to that. Nelle Hall may
teach one year, for Howard is only a Junior,-she says she is
going to be a doctor, but that's only a bluff. Cox and Over-
man are already safe-happy beings! There is not that ele-
ment of uncertainty about them that is so distressing. Anna
Byers, well, we think maybe she and Broadus have quit, for
he had his mother to church the other night and his sisters to
prayer meeting. Maybe it is the best thing, anyhow. And
Napoleon Douglass and Ida are just as sweet on each other as
ever if appearances prove anything. There 's no telling where
Newman and Jessie will live. Of course, they will live to-
gether. They couldn't live at all, otherwise. He expects to be
an expert. He is an expert now in some things, but when that
mine of Professor Crowell 's pans out, they may move in with
Rockefeller. Jessie will have gold rings in her ears, and nose,
too, and Porter can sell the old fat horse and buy an airship.
Harry Houghan surely is crazy about Mary Day, and we see
where he is right about it. She is on the House Committee
at the Dorm, and she can work Ma. Bergen to a. frazzel. Harry
Cwe suppose it is Harryy, sends her great long boxes of roses
and takes her places, etc., etc., like folks do when they have a
ease, so it is easy to predict what will happen. Loomis, well.
she's got a case, too. And Grace Magaw is in the same box.
Odell is as good as married. He 's been working his head off to
get out of college a year sooner. By good rights, he should
graduate with us, but he just can 't wait another year for his
ruby of greatest price. Tillie is one of the widows-that's
worse than being married. Actually, there is Ralph Records
Who hasn't a ease that We know of. And Hazel Wishard and
Hendrickson-just at' present they haven't any, either, but
you ean't tell what Will turn up before commencement. Did
you ever see such a loving class? The last one of them ought
to have a L. B. CBatchelor of Lovej
Commencement week Will be the same as last year, only
the classes jogged up one peg. Wish We could tell about the
clever stunts the Juniors are going to do at the class play,
we don't know ourselves, yet, what they are going to do. Of
course they will be funny, the Juniors never do anything but
smart things. Of course We will Wear our dunce caps to the
play. We can 't fight the Seniors nor steal their class play,
because we have promised to be good, but we mean to do some-
thing lively if Whitcomb Will Wake up and call a class meet-
ing. Hels too slow to catch cold. He's so busy hanging
around Halls that he forgets to go to his meals.

Dream of the Dorm
Before the fire I sit at ease, my cigarette aglow,

A fluffy mass of sunny hair, two deep blue eyes ashine-
She was the fairest of them all, this old sweetheat of mine.
A dormitory girl was she, and so her lot was hard,
For over all the fair co-eds, the matron kept a guard,
And so to church on Sunday night we'd all pretend to start,
But ere we had gone half a square the couples all would part.
Ah me! those Sunday evening strolls-their memory haunts
For every night we'd overtake Julian and Leonette.
I-Iow slowly they could walk the streets, the Heavens only
But none of us walked very fast, in days of long ago.
The Wicloxifs' Club met at the dorm on every Thursday night,
They opened with a silent prayer for loved ones out of sight.
While down below the other girls collected, as a rule,
And offered thanks to Providence, for boys still left in school.
On Tuesday night, down to the dorm the boys came in a
And many strange things I can tell, if I may be allowed.
Straight to the shadowed window seats the Freshmen took a

Upon a little cushioned seat, screened by folding door
From glances of the envious, sat Allah and her More,

Childs tried to argue Mary into getting up a ease.
And even on forbidden nights, our pleasures did not end,
For downrope ladders, one by one, the girls would all descend.
How once the Pi Phi ladder broke, I recollect full well-
They thought it was an earthquake shock, when Josie Porter
I remember when I told my girl, with eyes of sunny blue,
That I'd ever love her dearly, and she said she'd love me too.
I lingered late that evening, after the ten-thirty bell,
And the matron almost caught us in a passionate farewell.
But twenty years have flitted past since that eventful day.
,Inst what a failure I have been I hesitate to say.
And out in California, where the skies forever shine,
She's matron of a dorm herself, this old sweetheart of mine.

VVHERE FRANKLIN WATER IS CRITICISED
WILD ANIMALS I HAVE KNOWNH'
fVVith unmistakable regrets to Mr. Seton-Thompson.
The Merryeyeso-fondomenum-One of the Dormitorium
family. Lives almost exclusively on American beauties and
sweetmeats. Quite gentle, and enjoy petting. Dislike herding
and are likely to be found roaming apart. Moonlight has a
peculiar effect upon this animal. Become more manageable
than in sunlight. At no time to be trusted.
The Freshioso-gallantum-Very disagreeable unless
tamed early. A member of the Soonwillborus family. VVill
eat anything. Can be fed by any pleasant lady or girl. The
natural enemy of most of the other species. Quite susceptible
to all atmospheric conditions. Should be let alone until more
matured. Becomes unmanagable if over-petted.
The Prido-starathletus-One of the Gymnasio family.
Generally larger than the other animals. Has a natural ab-
horence for linen. Has a peculiar gait. Could almost be said
to strut. Much petted by girls. Said by many to be peculiarly
susceptible to heart disease.
The Sophmorio-noseglassia-A good eater: consumes
many volumes. A noted member of the Lookwisatus family.
Quite gentle, but should be kept in small inclosure to insure
absolute safety. Will stand without hitching. A very pa-
thetic expression may be noted about the eyes. Said by some
to be universal favorites among professors and feeble-minded
' The Independentino-lovnonus-One of the Cretalongium
family. Rare, but not extinct. Rarely very graceful gait or
general appearance. Tamed only by experts. Refuse to herd.
Eat anything and heartily. Captured only by cleverest
strategy. Are said to be very valuable when tamed.
The Senioribus-highandmightio-Live in small numbers.
Unusually active. Herd easily. A member of the Oforgivum
family. No one has ever found any particular need of this
animal. Like the Merryeyeso-fodomenum, they enjoy a great
deal of petting, and can at no time be trusted. The friend-
ship of this animal is many times won by the tender watch-care
of young girls. Consume nearly anything. Are said to be
especially fond of different kinds of toasts. Are never seen
in summer, but herd in early Fall. R. G. S., '04,
Douglas Qhome on spring vacationj "Well, mother, what
would you think if I should bring somebody home with me one
of these days? O, I can hardly wait."
"Yes," said Mr. Townshend at the dinner table, "Science
is doing wonders. I heard just the other day of a scientist
who is trying to get a cross between the strawberry vine and

Oh! shimmering sea of purple and gold,
Oh! heaving waters that never grow old:
I love thee by day with a, thousand tints,
I love thee by night with mysteries rare hints,
By moonlight that hides her beauties in thine,
By sunlight that makes them the world 's and mine.
Oh! shimmering sea of purple and gold,
Oh! heaving waters that never grow old,
I love thee when furious you dash on the shore,
And silence my soul with majestic roar,
And toss the white sand and flake it with foam
Till God in my soul 's deepest chambers doth roam.
Oh! shimmering sea of purple and gold,
Oh! heaving waters that never grow old,
I love thee in strength of thy calm repose,
IVhen measureless seem thy ebbs and thy flows,
A type of my manhood so rugged and strong,
VVhen first I gave ears to thy beautiful song.
Oh! shimmering. sea of purple and gold,
Oh! heaving waters that never grow old,
I love you because you are broad and deep,
And calmly below your wild waves will sleep,
The wrecked and the lost, long ago dead,-
A type of the hopes and the joys of our youth
That are tossed and then lost in the glare of life is truth
Oh! shimmering sea of purple and gold,
Oh! heaving waters that never grow old,
I love you for color, for music, for might,
For splendor by day and mystery by night,
For life that you have, and life you suggest, '
That shall conquer life's trouble and age and death,
And give to the soul immortality 's breath.
O. I-I. IIALL, August 6, 1905.
. The Glee Club on theiRoad
AS IT HAPPENED.
At Arcadia Roy Hanna got tipsy.
At Kempton Miss Lewis made a hit, Thomas lost his
head, but won a heart.
At Flora Judson refereed a scrap, Thurston broke his
violin and Marshall made a star recitation at Sunday School.
'At Young America everybody had a good time, but some
At Fulton the f'Big Four" took a sleigh ride in a num-
ber two QQD sleigh.
At Logansport Santa presented the club with a large
bunch of 'fFrost." Erbie, in company with 'cPapa" Cox,
"Dollie" Marshall and HIke" Brown, saw the colored light
district, and they all made a mad rush for their bosom friends.
At Delphi L. W. H. received his new name "Uncle Wee
VVoy," and John met his Sadie for the first time.
At Indianapolis the club became frightened at so many
old maids and in the excitement "Papa" Cox broke his voice.
At Kokomo Schmitty was carnationized. I
At Galveston, arrived early. "Ike" turned miller, plied
his trade day and night and went to the rural districts for
ham. Erbie bought in on Sunday for fifty cents. Dora said
she got her money's worth.
At Tipton, Byers, in preparation for stormy weather, bor-
rowed an umbrella and disgraced himself by returning "her"
with two broken ribs.
At Elwood, girls in abundance. Many diamonds flashed,
but the boys remained undaunted to the end of the year.
February 1-2 the club appeared before the Johnson Coun-
ty Teachers' Association, and, as usual, Erbie made a great
hit with the school "Marina"
February 20 the club went to Greenwood. Another frosty
night. Cox gave the bear dance to pass away the time and got
called by the proprietor of the opera house.
EN ROUTE SPRING VACATION.
Erbie misses the car for Plainfield. Cox reminded of the
days he spent at the Boys' School several years ago. He is a
living example of the great changes the school can make in
At Plainfield Nichols loses his new tan Oxfords and Childs
and Thomas make a forced run for the car.
At Iklhitestown "Tommie" finds the baby with a shovel
and t'Juddie" gets tickled.
At Goodland the club wins a game of base ball over the
high school by the score of 14 to 6. Marshall makes the best
batting average and Erbie tries to make a. date with a young
married woman. McCracken invests heavily in Perkins Wind-
mill stock, his first dividend being a midnight "Swing"
At Wolcott it rains. Edie establishes himself as a violin
instructor, charges being very light. He obtains a very apt
pupil and excellent board.
At Monon everybody happy-big crowd, good piano and a
At going to press there is an unfilled engagement at Madi-
son May 2.

An Epistle to the Sophomores
9 AMES, a student of Franklin, and of the
Junior class, unto the Sophomores who are
W gm in Franklin: Peace be unto you.
I write unto you, O Sophomores, be-
- Q Q if cause ye have been a burden unto the Col-
lege for many years, because the gift of
knowledge has been offered unto you and
ye would not, because ye have minds and think not. I write
unto you because I would have you lay aside your Vanities,
hypocrisy and self-conceit, and receive the gift of wisdom.
If ye say ye are of us, and cease not to walk in ignorance
and self-conceit, ye lie and do not the square thing. If ye
say ye have fellowship with the Juniors, and continue to sit
in the seat of the egotistical, and stand in the way of Seniors,
ye prevaricate, and it were better for you that millstones were
hanged about your necks and ye were east into the swimming
Behold, the Sophomore plucketh a fiower. I-Ie diligently
teareth it to pieces, he bestoweth a great name upon it where-
with to confound the mind of a Prep, and he thinketh he hath
wisdom, but all is vanity, for, is it not written: "The wisdom
of a Sophomore is like a tree planted on the banks of Sugar
Creek, and the floods came, and it withstood them not."
I beseech you, O Sophomores, that ye continue not in your
lyings, hypocrisies, frivolities and love-makings, that ye be
not stuck on yourselves, nor on one another: for it is written:
"Let him that is stuck up take heed lest he fall, even in the
very upness of his stuckitude. " I-Iowbeit, be not discouraged,
O beloved, but cease from the ways of the foolish and seek
after the crown of wisdom, that ye may inherit the learning
of the Juniors. Peace be unto you all. Amen.
Let us all be friends and brothers
In this struggle of our lives
Helping one another upward
Till we reach immortal skies.
