ELMER BURRI'l"I' BRYAN, Ll',.D
The class of 1010 has become noted for breaking away from precedent, and the editorial statli of this year's annual has decided on a
number of things which may perhaps Fix this reputation more firmly on the class. We present to you this year 'l'l11-Z l'lI4ASlll.ltlll'I', and no
doubt many will object to the putting aside of the time-honored title, 'lllllll BI.lll'I Msn tlotn. 'l'o these critics we can only say that the
name BLUE AND GOLD seems to us to lack distinction of any kind whatever, when it is considered liow inanv schools over the countrv
wear these same colorsg and we believe that the change of the name and the appearance of the book wasjustihed. I
Times without number, during the course of the year, we have been asked when the annual would appear. Our answers were usually
ambiguous, because for a long time it,
there was considerable doubt whether l
it would appear at all. Unlike most
previous annual boards, we have re-
ceived no financial assistance from
the college, and what we have done
has been done on our own respon-
sibility. The experience of last year's
publication board has been of great
value to us, and we appreciate the
aid given us by them and also by any
others who have assisted in any way
in the production of the book. As
usual, the members of the board have
put in all the time and elfort de-
manded without hesitationg but we
realize that any other member of the
class would have been just as willing
to devote anything that might be nec- ,
essary to the welfare of the class MXN Bun

The past year has been one of slow but steady progress, following the great steps forward that were taken in 1907-8. 'l'he enroll-
ment has shown a steady growth, which, through the abolition of the preparatory department, is really much greater than appears on
paper. No new buildings have been erected during the past year, but the equipment of those already in use has been materially in-
.creased-and, as usual, there is an excellent pros-
pect for the construction of a science hall in the
Several changes have occurred in the make-
up of the faculty since last year. We miss some
of the old familiar faces, but in every case their
vacancies seem to have been ably filled. Two
new departments-liiblical Science and Physical
Culture--have been installed, and the scope of
others has been widened. Besides this, the Coeds
are now in charge of a dean, and everyone seems
to favor the change with the exception of a few
dormitory "cases" who find the number of their
dates reduced. Under Dr. Bryan's direction
lfranklin is steadily moving onward, and year by
year the alumni spread the fame of their alma
mater over ever-widening areas.
The past season in athletics can hardly be
said to have been successful. 'I'he baseball team
of 1908 was pursued by hard luck from the very
first, and was not as successful as, on form,
it should have been. The football team put out
last fall was perhaps the least successful that
ever represented Franklin. The men were out-
classed, but played an unusually heavy schedule
elear through to the end, and showed a lighting spirit such as any school should he proud ol'. The lirst really representative college has-
kethall team was sent out this winter, and in spite ol' the inexperience of the men made a very creditable record. For the first time in
seven years a track team has heen organizedg and, though it is rather early in the season to niake predictions they hid lair to represent
Franklin very well indeed. In former days athletics were run at haphazard, the coaches ol' the different teams varied from year to
year, and there were no facilities worth mentioning for physical culture. llut now we have one of the hest and most modern gymna-
siums in the state. an athletic hoard ol' control in charge of all finances, and a permanent athletic director. Under such circumstances the
outlook for hetter athletics is
Other college activities are
still as tlourishing as ever. The
l"l'lIlld'1l'l1 has this year hecome
a weekly, and in its new form is
a very good college newspaper.
The work in the literary socie-
ties and Christian Associations
has flourished, and interest in
oratory seems to he reviving to
Une thing which has heen
apparent to everyone this year
is the immense increase in col-
lege spirit. This has heen man-
ifest at all the games. and
also in less conspicuous places. '
No one can deny that even since
last season there has heen an
immense increase in the f'.s'l'I'1'f ..... t A r in . ,,.,..-- ..
fir' mrjxv of the whole student Guns' Drmmn-oily
body. Less is heard now than ever before about the interests of some faction or clique, and more about the wel fare of the college. This
is perhaps the most radical change of the whole year, and the most heneiieial.
And so we are coming to the close of a year of progress-not so marked, perhaps, as some other periods, but still, in spite of the
hindrances, a step forward. At the approaching eonnneneenient diplomas will be given to the largest senior class ever graduated, and
incidentally, commencement week will be distinguished hy the exploits of the largest and liveliest junior class the college has ever seen.
Never heiore have the skies ahead been so bright as they are at the present time. From the "glorious dream" of the song, the future
ol' Franklin is rapidly becoming a glorious reality.

Colnmhus ll. Ilall, NM., IXID., has heen at the head ol' this department since 1879. The live years
previous to 1879 found j. W. Moncrief A.lXl.. in charge. Under him the Greek department became sep-
arate from that of I.atin, with which it had been connected since 1847.
'l'his department otiers one of the hest disciplines for the mind in the college course. The knowl-
edge of Greek is essential to the attainment of culture. 'l'he Hellenic languages are the most expressive,
the most artistic languages in the world of literature. Under the inspiration of Professor Hall's teaching
the student acquires not only the knowledge and appreciation ol' the power and heauties of the Greek
language, hut the amhition to put forth the very hest that is in him. Professor Hall attended Franklin
College until the middle ol' his senior year. 1872. when the College was suspended. He then entered
Chicago University and graduated in -I une. ln 1875 he graduated from the Baptist Union 'l'heologica1
Seminary of Chicago and also received the degree ol' A.M. from Franklin College the same year. In
addition to his college duties Doctor Hall has followed the profession of a minister of the Gospel since
1874. lle was elected Vice-President of our College in 1885.

'l'he Department of Latin has existed since 1847. Until ahout 1874 the departments of Greek and
Latin were one. Rev. NV. Brand, A.M., was the First instructor in the classical languages. From 1848
until 1856 John VV. Dame assisted him as tutor. 'Phe department was then without a professor until
1867, when Rev, F. NV. Brown was elected to the chair of modern and ancient languages. Failing health
Caused him to give up this position in 1872 and the professorship was vacant for two years. Miss 'l'.
Parks, BS., then held it for one year. Rev. C. H. Hall, A.M., 15.11, was then secured as head of the
department until 1879 when Arthur B. Chaffee. A.M., was called to the chair. In 1887, Francis
W, Brown, A.M., Ph.lD.. again accepted a unanimous call to the chair of Latin in the College. 'l'he de-
partment under Professor Brown heeame a strong one. His entire strength and time were given to this
work. Last year he retired from the chair and Professor Howland C. Merrill, A. M., was elected Pro-
fessor of Latin.
Professor Merrill prepared for college in the Marion Collegiate Institute, Marion, N. V.. and grad-
uated from Collegiate University in 1886, receiving the degree of A. B. in 1890. and of A. M. in 1894.
After one year of postgraduate work, he accepted the Professorship of History and Economies in Ottawa
University, Kansas. Later he completed the course in the Rochester Theological Seminary. After seven
years in the pastorate in New York State at Pittsford, Afton and Oneida, he accepted the chair of Latin
in Shurtleff College, Upper Alton, lll., in 1904.
Professor Merrill is an eilicient teacher and especially strong in this line. He is a memher of the
Kappa lfraternities, and of the Lyceum.

ln the olden time the college curriculum consisted of Latin, Greek and Mathematics. with special
emphasis laid upon Greek and Latin. Rev. john Berry. A.M., first taught Mathematics in Franklin.
john S. l-lougham, A.D., was his close successor in 1848, and held the chair of Mathematics and Natural
Philosophy until 1853 when Mark Bailey, A.M., was called to the professorship. He was succeeded in
1858 hy Jeremiah Brumback, A.M. 'l'he President of the College, Rev. Wm. Hill, A.M., had charge of
higher mathematics in 1867. Besides this George W. Hewitt was at the head of the Commercial depart-
ment. In 1869 IC. NValter was elected as Professor of Mathematics and in 1872 Professor Rebecca j.
Thompson was called to a position in Franklin College.
'l'he wonderful development made in the sciences du1'ing the nineteenth century compelled all col-
leges to make a place for scientific studies. Step by step they were recognized as having a rightful place
in the liberal education. Finally they were made equal in rank with the old time classics and Mathematics.
Never, however, did the changes made crowd out Mathematics. Some modifications were necessary to
meet the requirements of the different courses belonging to the college of the present time. Some of
the mathematical subjects have been placed in the High School or the Academic course, others are made
elective for certain courses. More emphasis is laid upon such subjects as Analytics and Calculus, sub-
1YRU1.'.'1'H0Mp5ON jects which are related to the sciences. 'l'he required course in Franklin College of thirty-live years ago
, was what it is today, except a half-year of Geometry now obtained in a high school, the required course ol'
the Freshman year. ln the late eighties all Mathematics except in the Freshman year were made elective.
Mathematics pre-eminently demands self-denial, patience and perseverance from the youth, precisely at that period when they have
liberty to act for themselves, and when habits oi' restraint and application are particularly valuable. It is the thought' of the department
to assist in developing habits of application and ol clear and vigorous thought.

'l'he department of History and Political Science has always been a popular one in the college, at-
tracting the students interested in social and political problems who are willing to work.
History and Political Science, with its auxiliary sciences are those sciences which have to do with
men and societies of men in the past, and, as they construct the political and social work of today. Their
study covers, therefore, the study of God's nnal creation, many a study of him as he was, and as he is, a
determining factor in the world's work. 'l'he leading thought in this department is to unfold to the stu-
dent the fulness of the life of the past, to offer to him the opportunity to search for and to find the
truth concerning the past, to interpret the present in the light of the past, and to see and to measure the
present in the light of the discovered truth. It seeks to emphasize that the study of History is the search
for truth and calls for the courage to recognize the truth when discovered, that the study of Political
Science is the careful consideration and cool comparison of those institutions, political and social, theo-
retical and practical, which are the result of man's work.
This department was started in 1882 under Professor VV. Moncrief, A.M., as the department of
History, and linglish Literature. ln 1895 Charles IC. Goodell, A. M., was elected to the chair. He was
succeeded by A. R. 1-1 atton who was instructor in History until Arthur liugene Bestor, A.B., became head
of the department in 1902. Charles N. Peak, A. B., held the chair of History and Political Science in Prior. PAi,M1crt
1904. ln 1905 William H. Allison, Ph.l5.. was elected to the chair. liast fall Herriott Clare Palmer,
A.lVl'., became a member of the Faculty. '
Professor Palmer is a graduate of Franklin College. Her University education was procured in Huy-vgml and Columbia 'Universi-
ties. She received her Master's degree at the close of the year 1905-06. She further studied in Columbia in the year 1906-7.
Miss Palmer is well known as .1 teacher and as a member of various educational organizations. She is at present Secretary of the
Indiana State '1'eacher's Association and is a member of the American l-listory Association. Miss Palmer is a member of the Pi Beta

Professor Melvin li. Crowell, NM., was elected to the chair of Chemistry and Physics in 1899. This
department heeame separate from that of Biology in 1887 when Rev. A. B. Chaffee, A. M., who had heen
instructor in Analytical Chemistry in the college since 1885 was called to the chair. Wellington B.
johnson, A.M., succeeded him in 1889 and was at the head of the department until I898.
'l'he aim of this department is to give the student the hroadest and most practical view of the field of
Physical Science. lt offers a course which will prepare lwoth the student who will go directly i11to prac-
tical life, as well as the one who intends to pursue advanced work in higher institutions. 'l'o this end
Professor Crowell has given his untiring efforts and has spent all his time making his department at-
tractive and in adding to the apparatus. Professor Crowell is the inventor of the Crowell Apparatus for
teaching Physics and the Author of the laboratory Manual for the same. Under his eflicient management
this department has been completely revolutionized. Within the next few years a 11ew Science Hall will he
erected and with the present excellent apparatus the student will have the very hest opportunity for work
of the highest standard.
Professor Crowell is a graduate of the Genesee Valley Seminary, Belfast, and the University of
Rochester, N. Y. The year of 1885 was spent as an honorary scholar in the Johns Hopkins University.
He is a memher of the llelta Upsilon and the .Phi Beta Kappa Fraternities. Recently the honorary cle-
gree of A.M. was conferred upon him by DePauw University, Greencastle, lnd. Professor Crowell has
had much experience as a teacher of Chemistry and Physics and has proven himself a master of his line.

Many changes have been made in this department since it was founded in 1845. together with the
department of Chemistry and Physics. The first three years three courses were successively taught by john
B. Tisdale, Rev. J. Berry, A.M., and john S. Hough man, A.D. The department underwent some changes
under the latter who held the chair until 1853 when Mark Bailey succeeded him. In 1858 Jeremiah Brum-
back was elected as Professor and was in charge of the work until 1867. Rev. J. H. Smith was then chosen
as Professor of Natural Sciences. While acting President in 1869 W. T. Stott, l,l..l7., took charge of
the Natural Science and was assisted by B. Wallace, M.l7., and P. W. Payne, M.ll.. who lectured on
Anatomy and Philosophy. IC. S. Hopkins was at the head of the department in 1873 and after a vacancy
of one year, the chair was filled for one year by Rev. C. H. Hall, A.M., D.D. The following two years.
no one had charge of the department. However, in 1878 G. E. Bailey, A.M., was secured as Professor
of Geology and Chemistry. Professor ll. A. Owen became tutor in that department, in 1879, and was
elected to the chair of Natural Science in 1883. The departments of Biology and Chemistry became sep-
arate in 1887 when Professor Owen was elected as Professor of Geology and Botany.
Since 1887 the department made rapid advances under Professor Owen. He received the degree of
A.M. from his Alma Mater during his first years of work in the college. He is a graduate of Franklin and
has taken post graduate work in Marine Biological Station at Woods Holl and at the University of Chicago.
Owing to a leave of absence the latter part of this school year, the professor's untiring efforts and per-
sonil ability and help have been greatly missed, in this department. Professor Owen cannot be equaled in his ability to arouse in the stud
dents the desire for original research work. '
He is a member of the Phi Delta Theta 1"raternity, of the lndiana Academy of Science and of the American Association for the
advancement of Science.

'No department added in recent years has had a popularity equal to that of Domestic Science. This
department was established last year with Miss Bertha Miller, a graduate of the Domestic Science depart-
ment in Columbia University, as Professor. This year we have Miss lilecta Alva Henley at the head of
the department. Miss Henley attended liarlham College, Richmond, Ind., and Lenox Hall, School of
Domestic Science, in St. Louis, Mo. ln connection with her work in St. l,ouis. Miss Henley taught Y. W.
C. A. classes and also gave demonstration lectures. Frequently in addition to her work as a Professor,
Miss Henley has given lectures before different Farmers' Institutes.
A two years course is offered in the department of Domestic Science. The principal object in the
beginning work is to prepare the girls to meet the practical needs of life. Home Economics and practi-
cal cooking have been emphasized. The girls are taught to manage and care for a home, and to be eco-
nomical in marketing, thus realizing the possibilities in life and adding an incentive to further study of
the right and best ways of doing things.
H ln the advanced class fancy and attractive as well as palatable dishes have peen prepared. Special
attention has been given to the preparation of menus. Besides this a careful study has been made of
invalid cookery. 1
A course in Domestic Art Iias also been offered in this department for the first time. Unusual in-
terest has been taken and exceptionally good work has been done. We have reason in every way to feel
proud of the success of our Domestic Department.

This department was founded by tl. W. Moncricf, A.lN'l., who was elected to the chair of English
Literature in 1882. XVilliam li. Henry, A.lVl'.. succeeded him as Professor in 1895. Henry li. Coblentz,
A.B., was also instructor in English at that time. From 1897 until 1905 Rev. IC. S. Gardiner, A.M., had
charge of this department. joseph li. Robinson, A.lV1., was his successor. ln 1907 Arthur Train Bel-
knap, A.M., li.ll., was called to the professorship. He is a strong addition to our Faculty and the de-
partment has been broadened and improved.
Professor Arthur Train Belknap, A.M., B. ll., graduated from Brown University with degree ol'
A.H. in 1893, from Newton Theological Institution in 1896, and the same year received the degree of A.l3.,
upon examination at Brown University, after special work in Pinglish and the Philosophy of Religion.
The winter of .1898-1899 was spent in the Divinity School of Harvard University. Here he received the
degree of lill, The following winter he again attended the Newton Theological Institution as a grad-
uate student. ln addition to his work as pastor he was at various times a special student in the Andover
Theological Seminary and the School of Expression at Boston. He is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa
Fraternity and of the Lyceum.
The English llepartment offers regularly three consecutive courses in which is given practice in
PRUF. BELKNM, written and oral composition. and training in the study of literature. The work is adapted to the needs ol?
the average student and serves as a foundation both for teaching and graduate study. Originality, inde-
pendence of thought and naturalness in verbal and vocal expressions are encouraged in the first course. The second course gives the stu-
dent some understanding of the best that has been written in his language and prepares him to exercise independent and discriminating

lt has long been the desire of Franklin College to adopt a chair of Biblical interpretation. llast year
Professor Charles Melvin Phillips was called to this position. In addition to his work in this depart-
ment, Professor Phillips is successfully directing the field work for the college.
Professor Phillips graduated from Franklin in the class of 1900 with the degree of A.B. Besides
this he spent two years in the Louisville Seminary and later graduated from the Crozier Seminary, Ches-
ter, Pa., with the degree of B.D. He has held different pnstorates in lndiana and for four years held
the position of joint editor of the Baptist Observer.
This course covers two years work. A line of work in Old Testament is offered accompanied by a
one hour course in Mission Study. Another four hour course in New Testament with a one hour course
in Sunday School Pedagogy is provided for. Besides these lines a Bible Club has been formed which
when completed, gives tl1e student a general view of the Scriptures. In the four hour course the Bible
itself is taken up as a text book. Professor Phillips accompanies these courses with a series of able
Although this department has but recently been added to the curriculum and the work is entirelv elect-
ive, it is deservingly popular. One-third of the students have taken up the work. The chair fills a va-
cancy long felt in the' college.

Bicn'l'HA DAKIN SMITH., Profnmzr Vocal Music
In 1867 Professor W. Martin was elected instructor of Instru-
mental and Vocal Music in the college. Miss M. Allen held the position
from 1869 to 1873 when the department became vacant for two years.
Miss Emma L. Heustis was then secured for one year. From 1877 to 1880
J. M. Dungan was head of the department. He was then succeeded by
Mrs. A. B. Chaffee but after one year again took charge of the department.
Mrs. Minnie Bruner became his assistant in 1895. In 1897 Clarke Rodr-
ney Parker was elected vocal instructor and Mrs. Minnie Brown Bruner
Instrumental instructor which position she still holds. After a two years
vacancy in the Vocal department, Alice F. Evans held the professorship
for the year of 1902. Jesse D. Lewis then became instructor and held that
position until 1908. Mrs. Bertha Dakin Smith was called to the position
of Professor of Vocal Music and Dean of Women last year.
Mrs. Minnie Brown Bruner first studied in Cincinnati under Mr. Vic-
tor Williams, a musician of marked ability. Before entering Franklin,
1 V, Professor Bruner taught Music in Kentucky for several years. Since
It g. ' graduating from our Music department she has continued her music stud-
ies under able instructors, such as Mr. Newton S. Swift of the Boston Con-
servatory, and especially under Miss Mary Josephine Wight who studied Puor. Smrrn
in Vienna under Leschetizky.
In her teaching Professor Bruner emphasizes thoroughness and the higher ideals in her chosen work. She is keeping abreast with
the best modern methods and literature in Music.
Mrs. Bertha Dakin Smith, Professor of Vocal Music, is an able instructor, having studied for a number of years in both Boston and
Chicago. She is eilicient in the various branches of Music, including chorus conducting, sight singing, and ear training and has made
special preparation for teaching individual voice culture. Her teaching is based on the methods used by Mrs. Magnus of Chicago.
Our Music department has a two fold purpose. It establishes a broad foundation for those who intend making Music a profession
and gives a general knowledge of the subject to those who may desire to make the study of Music supplementary to regular college work.

'l'here is a popular demand that Painting as well as Music, should have a place in the College Cur-

partment has been. vacant since Mrs. Arabella Stott resigned in 1808. However at present the students
have an opportunity which has been taken advantage of by a great many. An Art department has been
furnished in the College building and while not a part of the college curriculum. presents a splendid op-
portunity to all students interested in painting and drawing.
Miss Vinnie Ream Goode of Indianapolis is in charge of this department. All forms of Academic
Drawing. China and Water Color painting are offered. 'l'he l,ife Class is doing especially good work.
Miss Goode studied in Virginia with a private teacher. Since then she has continued her work under
Mrs. Hadley, who has charge of the China department at Heron lnstitute. besides taking the course in
Academic drawing. She is a miniature artist of some note. At the lndia11 ltlxliibition of Artists a few
years ago, she received creditable mention, her miniatures being the only ones exhibited besides those ol'

Miss Goode has also had favorable mention as anillustrator, many olf her pictures having appeared in
various papers throughout the United States. She has had experience as a teacher and this department

Franklin can well boast ol' its gymnasium. No better one is to be seen among the secondary col-
leges of the middle west. And it is more than a mere building-it is the scene of lively physical activity
each day, according to a definite schedule.
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons, until four o'clock, the girls engage in the strenuous
life. There are classes for drill and fancy gymnasium work, for basketball, volleyball, and tennis, and
by no means least, for swimming. Some light work on the apparatus is also taken. Throughout the
year, the girls have made good use of the gymnasium.
The boys are wont to make full use of their time on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, besides the
time after the girls' hours on the other days. A trainer is kept busy at the close ol' these sessions giving
all who need it a brisk "rub-down." V
Classes in drill and apparatus work have been well attended during the winter months. A squad of
about fifteen have taken their exercise by playing basketball. Indoor track work, indoor baseball, indoor
tennis and handball complete the program.
During the year a large amount of the best modern equipment has been installed. The floor is one
of the finest in the state, and the swimming pool is second to none. The building is well equipped with
all modern appliances and conveniences, and the interest shown in its use is gratifying.
john I.. Goheen is in charge of the department. Professor Goheen is a graduate of Wooster Uni-
erience in athletics both as a player and a coach. The department, though new, is already doing a very

The objects of this department are to enable the student to acquire facility in reading and con-
versing in these languages, and to acquaint him with their literatures.
In the fall of 1890 Miss Jeannette Zeppenfeld was placed in charge of this department. Miss
Zeppenfeld is a graduate of Franklin College in the class of 1890. She has studied French in Indian-
apolis under a native Frenchman, and also taken private work in French at Paris. The summer after she
received the degree of MS. from her Alma Mater for graduate work in History and Italian, was spent
in the Sauveur Summer School of Languages at Exeter, New Hampshire, where she was granted a
teachers' diploma in the German department. During a leave of absence from college duties in the
year 1901-1902 she studied during two semesters in the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and for
two months in the University of Grenoble, France.
The Modern Language Department was opened in the year 1885. One year of French and one
year of German were offered alternately. This work was in the hands of Professor J. W. Moncrief.
A.M., of the History Department. The next year the department had at its head Mr. J. D. Bruner.
A.B., who held that position for two years. Under him the work was greatly extended. Two lines
of French and two lines of German were offered. The department remained the same under Mr. C. li.
Goodell who held the position of Instructor the year before Miss Zeppenfeld was called to the chair.
Four years of German and four years of 'French can now be secured. This year the department had

Miss Zeppenfeld has had large experience, besides natural ability as a teacher of languages, which makes her department a strong
one Her work in this department is equal to that in larger schools and universities. Professor Zeppenfeld became a member of the
P1 Beta Phi Fraternity while in college, and now 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.

The Alumni Association of Franklin College was organized in 1855. At that time there were nine graduates, including the two sen-
iors of that year, but those who obtained the major portion of their education at Franklin could become members also. However, about
1870 it was changed and now only grads are eligible for membership.
The Association meets each year at 'Franklin during the commencement season, elects officers, a poet and an orator for the follow-
ing year, and provides a dinner for the college and its guests. A
Franklin is well represented by her alumni in almost all worthy vocations such as politics, literature, education, the ministry, etc.,
and not a few have risen to more than prominence in their chosen fields. X
From the records which are available it would seem that Franklin turns out more teachers thannicmbers of any other profession.
'l'his large percentage is partly due to the fact that many graduates teach for the first year or two after leaving college, and then settle
down to some other business. In the meantime they are catalogued as teachers. But aside from this, undoubtedly Franklin has an
unusually large proportion of her sons and daughters in the educational world, and it is a remarkable fact that five per cent. of the
entire list of graduates are now college professors. '
More than a hundred Franklin alumni have entered-the ministry, or are missionaries on the home and foreign fields. When non-
graduates are included, Franklin has probably been as well represented in missionary endeavor as any school of the same size in America.
In business and professional life the college has been well represented, though a very large proportion of the graduates seem to
have gone into the ministry and the teaching profession. In the list given below the comparat'ively large number of soldiers is made up
chiefly of those who volunteered in the Civil and Spanish-American Wars, most of whom after the close of hostilities engaged in some
In public life Franklin's representation, while not unusually large, is very creditable. Quite a number of authors received their col-
lege education here. In the following classification, which is as complete as possible at present, a few names have been counted twice.
On the other hand, the figures for some occupations are incomplete, so that we are able to give only a portion of the total list of alumni.

In Iune, 1834, were laid the plans and foundations of the institution now known as Franklin College. The class of 1909 has the
honor of graduating on the seventy-fifth anniversary of its alma mater. It is Ilr. l3ryan's first freshman class, for he also entered upon
his Franklin duties in the fall of '05, The largest class ever hefore graduating was that of 1894, numhering thirty-twog the present class
has thirty-eight names on its rolls.
The history of the preceding years of this class has heen given in another annual. 'livery organization of the college is represented
in our ranks. The personnel of the class has changed somewhat since last ycarg several have left us, hut new faces appear in their stead.
The past year has heen full of work, hut there has also heen some play. In the interclass haskethall games the hoys of '09 won the cup.
We have championed the rights of our class sometimes at considerable expense-to othersg for further information consult some of the
sophs. We have striven to maintain our motto, "jest do your hest," to the last. and are now on the final stretch. After graduation-
what? Some will continue to add to the stores of knowledge from universities, and will he learning from the school of life. Our college
years have been prohably the happiest of our lives, and we cannot soon forget the institution which has heen our foster-mother during
that time. We shall continue to have a kindly feeling for the professors who have helped to mould our lives as well as our mindsg and
we have the. highest regard for our president, who has heen a personal friend and helper to each of us.

claim to have been of a lessinquiring nature than the usual far-famed freshie, hut with few mishaps they passed safely through hoth
that vear and the most critical period--the sophomore year. As a result of the good work done and the good spirit shown in those
year, in the autumn of 1908 they launched holdly forth as a hand of jovial and most energetic juniors. By their work in the classroom
and in all other lines of college activity they are holdly carrying out their policy that "whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well."

Our class matriculated in the fall of 1907 with an unusually large enrollment. Though not so strong now in numbers, we are rep
resented. in many phases of college life. While we lost the class haskethall games, we supported all forms of athletics most heartily
and hope to do better next year. The sophomores are well represented in the Glee Cluh. We are active in the Christian Associations
In social and intellectual life we are also strong.
The Seniors have showed us how to use the swimming pool, and showed one of our numher how to use the hathtub. Some of us are
already studying campustry.
ave elected the leaders of the annual hoard for next year, and hope to puhlish a hook that will he excelled hy none.

Indiana .Delta of Phi Delta Theta, founded on April 20, 1860, was the first and fora longtime the only fraternity at Franklin.
There were five founders of the chapter-George W. Grubbs, T. J. Morgan, William T. Stott, and Casabianca Byfield, together with
D. D. Banta, of Indiana Alpha, who was the moving spirit in the organization of the chapter. The chapter, like the college, went under
during the warg but it was revived in 1869 and entered on a long and honorable career.
In those early days conditions at Franklin were very different from the present, and fraternity life was correspondingly dissimilar.
But among the earlier members of the chapter were some of the most distinguished alumni of the college. Since 1869 Phi Delta Theta
has never been without a representative on the faculty of Franklin College.
For many years fraternity interest was subordinate to the bitter rivalry between the literary societiesg but Phi Delta Theta passed
safely through the period of inaction with a membership that continued to uphold the high standards of their predecessors. In later
years, when the college has grown and other bands of Greeks have come in from time to time, Indiana Delta has always been eager to
welcome them. '
The chapter this year has been composed of twenty-two men, four of whom graduate. The members have continued to uphold the
standard of the fraternity, and in no line of college activity is Phi Delta Theta found wanting. The chapter occupies a splendid suite
of rooms in the city building, besides a large chapter house on Forsythe Street.

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity was founded March 9, 1856, at the University of Alabama. At this time the South was in
the high-tide of ante-bellum prosperity. It can readily be undestood how an organization founded at that time, in a southern college, by
southern men, with friends in the southern institutions in which it was desired to place chapters, should in the five years prior to the Civil
War have gained a firm foothold in the states south of Mason and l7ixon's Line.
The struggles of the Civil War were survived, though many of the chapters died, and after the war cloud had passed away the frater-
nity recuperated and extended rapidly as a Southern organization. ln 1883 it was decided to recognize no South, no North, no East, no
West, and in this year the first northern chapter was established. From this time it grew rapidly until today it is one of the largest fra-
ternities. Among its members are some of the foremost of the nation. including our martyred president, William McKinley, who was an
honorary member of an Ohio chapter.
At the Atlanta Convention in 1891, a charter was granted to a club in Franklin College. 'l'his was the First chapter in Indiana and
received the name "Indiana Alpha." It was installed February 14, 1892.
This chapter founded by such men as james A.. Berryhill, C. D. Hazelton, DI. M. Batterton, J. H. Howard, Hugh Miller, Henry W.
Davis, F. D. johnson, J. A. Hill, F. C. Whitcomb and Edgar Burton, was sure to grow. And it has grown until today the 2 A E's of
Indiana Alpha are among the leaders in all phases of college life.
This year the chapter has numbered twenty-two, six of whom will be lost by graduation. For several years the chapter has occupied
a beautiful suite of rooms in the Hall block, and this year the Rogers residence on East jefferson Street was also leased by the chapter.

Pi Beta Phi, the oldest of woman's fraternities, was founded at- Monmouth College, April 28, 1867. by a group of twelve college
girls. Its extension began the following year. 'l'he fraternity has at no time been sectional in character, but only within the year has it
gone beyond the limits of the United States.
ln December, 1908, the thirty-ninth active chapter was established at the University of Toronto, in Ontario, Canada. Another
policy has also been begun this year. Besides the undergraduate scholarships previously offered by the fraternity to its members, there
is this year offered for the first time a graduate scholarship to be used for study either in the United States or in Europe.
When Pi Beta Phi entered Franklin College in 1888, there were no other wo1nen's fraternities in school. The chapters of Delta
Gamma and Kappa Kappa Ganuna had ceased to exist before that time.
Of the fourteen charter members of Indiana Alpha Martha Noble Carter, Florence Schuh Clark, Emma McCoy Hillis, Inez Ulery
McGuire, Anna McMahan, Maud IC. Metsker, Elizabeth Middleton, Mary li. I-lillis, Monroe, l.evona H. Payne Newson, Herriott C.
Palmer, Mary P. Wood Sanford, -Emma Harper Turner, Nelly Beatrice 'l'urner, and Jeanette Zeppenfeld, some are in homes, some in
business, literary work, and professional life, one has served as a missionary to India, another was for two terms Grand President of
the Fraternity, one is in her second term as General Historian lg and two are now on the college faculty,
In its twenty-one years in Franklin College, Pi Beta Phi has initiated 163 girls. 64 of whom are graduates, 23 are now in college,
and a number are attending other schools.
Into the various college activities the Pi Phis have entered heartily-oratory, athletics, Y. W. C. A., literary societies, social life, and
high honors in the classroom have received their attention. For it has been the desire of the chapter to be a vital factor in the life of the
college to which it owes its existence.
On April 28th of this year the Indiana chapters will celebrate the forty-second anniversary of the founding of the fraternity, by a
luncheon and theater party in Indianapolis, The active and alumni members will both be present.

Alpha Gamma Alpha was organized in l"ranklin College on january 31, l896. 'l'he charter members were Mary Payne Beck, Sybil
Stevens Taylor, jessie Upjohn Waldo, Jennie Merrill, lilizabeth Ward and Nelle Miller White.
The active chapter this year numbers twenty-one. 'l'here is also an organized alumni chapter of thirty members meeting every two
weeks, which is of great help to the active girls. 'l'he patronesses of the sorority are Mrs. F. N. Whitesides, Mrs. 0. C. Dunn, Mrs. C. F.
Payne, Mrs. E. C. Miller, Mrs. C. A. Overstreet, and Mrs. M. Voris.
Alpha Gamma Alpha maintained a chapter house until the new dormitory was completed. Now the sorority has the south wing of
the second floor, occupied by the chapter halls and the girls' rooms.
'l'he past year has been an excellent one for Alpha Gamma Alpha. 'l'he girls have been well represented in all college activities, and
their work in the classroom has been up to their usual good standard. 'l'he social life of the girls is delightful, and long to be remembered
are many of their social functions. In every way the girls live up to their motto, and are ever loyal to old Franklin.

'l'he Annual of last year accused "Old Peri" of having a Rip Van Winkle sleep. But the little Hudson men must have given Peri
a drink from the fountain of eternal youth, for the sleep was only a short nap, and now the Periclesian is almost as young and vigorous
as when it was founded january l 1, 1853.
From that time until the suspension of the College at the beginning of the War, the work of the Society was continuous. When the
College reopened in 1871, the men who were back, again began active work, and there has never been a year since in which the Organiza-
tion lias failed to literary work.
Among the many well known members of previous years are W. H. McCoy, who entered the Society in 1853, j. K. Howard, Albert
Ogle, G. H. Elgin, G. W. Grubbs, F. W. Brown, W. S. Holman, Marion Clritlith, Senator J. R. Burton, C. M. Lambertson, 'l'. bl. Mor-
gan, R. A. Brown, Paul Monroe, and C. li. Ooodell.
Periclesian is now represented on- the faculty by 'l?rof. Jeanette Zeppenfeld, Prof, Herriott Clare Palmer, Prof. C. H. Hall, and
Prof. lb. A. Owen. i
It was the early custom of the Organization to have a roll of distinguished men who had consented to become honorary members.
ln the list appear Oliver P. Morton, Millard Fillmore, james Buchanan, 'l'homas Hendricks, and above all-Abraham Lincoln--whose
letter of acceptance is on file in the Society's records.
Periclesian, itself an outgrowth of the old Union Society, has furnished the founders of three similar organizations-the present
Webster founded in 18773 the Athenian in 1884, which existed for twelve years, the Ofer Gan originated in' 1900, which in a short time
It was decided by the members of the Perielesian to reorganize this year, in order to do work on a slightly different basis. Accord-
ingly, the membership of the Society is now divided into four sections, the leaders of which are in turn responsible for the planning and
the presenting of a program, by their section.
ln the new plan the type of literary work is unchanged, but 'one very definite improvement has been brought about--a faculty critic
has been secured. Professor Merrill of the Latin Department has taken charge of this part of the work, and has been ready with sugges-
tions and criticisms, to add interest and effectiveness to the doings of the organization. To his efforts the Periclesians attribute no small
part of the present prosperity of their literary society. ANNA BRYAN, 'O9.

'I'he Webster Literary Society was founded to answer a need. 'l'he early students saw that, although the College offered them so
many advantages, there were yet some things lacking. They thought that no student could go through college and receive the highest
development possible without some dennite literary training. ' -
It was with this end in view that the Webster Literary Society was organized thirty-one years ago. 'l'he literary programs given
each Friday evening have proved to be very helpful. 'l'he mental faculties are quickened in the debates and impromptus. Not only
is one trained to think but to express himself intelligently. Only the highest grade of literary work is done and each duty is criticised at
the end of each program. .
During the past year a few monologues and dramas have been well given. Vocal and instrumental music are interspersed throughout
the programs and add much to their success.
Not only has the chief purpose of the Society grown but the minor purposes have expanded. We consider the social development
co-ordinate with the intellectual, and that both should go hand in hand together. We are aware of the fact that one can receive training
from the association with people which is not possible in any other way. After each literary meeting there isha social hour which is always
spent very pleasantly. Then there are occasional evenings which are spent in a social way.
But the influence and activity of the Websters reaches beyond their own walls. 'l'hey are active in all college interests. The girls
and boys both take a lively part in athletics. 'I'he Y. W. C. A. and the Y. hi. C. A. receive their due attention. Oratory has always been
supported by them. The Webster Literary Society is interested in every phase of college life which will aid in the advancement of
Franklin College. 1 G. I. K.

The Linconia Literary Society was organized with nineteen charter members on March 24, 1908. The present enrollment is twenty-
nine. It stands as a memorial to the reverend Abraham Lincoln, and while by no means an adequate or a wholly worthy monument we
trust that we may never be a reproach to the name of a man who was such a stalwart figure in so many fields of activity, and by no means
least of all in literature.
The history of the Linconia society must necessarily be brief owing to its brief existence, but perhaps this can be compensated, in I1
measure, by the heights of our ambitions for the future. V
There are two secondary, but not unworthy, purposes of this organization,-to give our members a knowledge of parliamentary law
and drill in its usage, and to enable them to mingle agreeably with men and women in the broader social life.
But in the promotion of our primary purpose. the society, under the general supervision of a rotating literary committee, takes up
during each term a study of some period 'of literature. Last year we gained a feeling of familiarity with the works and characteristics
of the very earliest period of American literature, and the names of pioneer authors like jonathan Edwards, Cotton Mather, Washing-
ton and jefferson assumed a new, living personality for us, and we were made better able to grasp the foundational relationship of their
work to all subsequent literature.
Last Fall term we aspired to a distant fiight across the Atlantic and spent three months with modern and classical Grecian authors.
This work though much heavier than the former line of study proved to be one of exceptional intellectual profit to those who applied
themselves faithfully to its pursuance. At the close of this term Prof. C. l-I. Hall gave us a lecture on Grecian manners and customs.
But the following season found us again at home seeking to make the intimate acquaintance of the songsters in our own door-yard.
And the feeling of nearness that we have for the Hoosier authors made them a peculiarly fascinating study.
These distinctly literary subjects are interspersed on every program with debates, readings, original stories and poems, discussions of
current topics and political situations, reviews, impromptu speeches, soliloquies, original dialogues, or occasionally dramatizations or
tableaus from some standard works.
Our aim has been to make our programs not merely entertaining in the lighter sense of the word, but intellectually. Our ideals are
not always attained, else they would be unworthy ideals, but when we fall the farthest below them, then comes a strong, steady pull of the
entire membership to attain the nearest to them. It is to be ,doubted if there is another organization in college whose members stand
as nearly in complete unity, and, to use the current College phrase, as entirely free from "cliques" as the Linconia membershipg and it is
upon this firm basis that we are hoping for greater achievements in the future.
Owing to the fact that the successful public speaker is made largely by training rather than being born and also owing to the fact that
this institution does not support a department of public speaking, the only hope for Franklin College to ever do more than maintain her
present standing in the state oratorical contests lies in the strongest possible literary societies.

Franklin College Y. M. C. A. extends its greetings to the alumni and l'riends ol' the College.
During the past year improvement has been made in many lilies of its work. lispecially in llible Study and Mission Study great
progress has been Amade both in the enrollment of a larger number ol' men and the attainment oi' a much higher standard of work. This
improvement is largely due to the cooperation of the Y. M. C. A. with the recently installed department of Biblical lnterpretationg and
in this way more than Hfty men have been enrolled in the various classes of the department. 'l'he courses included' classes in the study
of the Old Etllil New Testament, a class in the study of Biblical lntroduction, a class in the study ol' Sunday School Pedagogy, and one
in the l-listory of Missions. A
The membership of the Association has been increased to about fifty paid-up members, representing men of varied interests and
types. The devotional meetings have been characterized by'an earnestness which has meant much for the spiritual life of the men.
'l'hrough the local Association, 'Franklin College has been well represented at all the Y. M. C. A. Conventions. At the Lake
Geneva Conference for college men of the Middle-West, the College was represented by one of the largest delegations that has ever gone
on from the local Association. 'l'wo delegates were sent to the International Bible Study Convention-. which was held at Columbus.
Ohio, last October. At the State Convention, Franklin College had the banner delegation, despite the fact that the Convention was
held in the extreme northern part of the State. '
Financially, the Association has done more this year than in previous years, and ettorts are now being made to complete the Budget
of three hundred dollars for the years work.
Our outlook for the coming year is especially bright, and we ale expecting, under the leadership of a strong president and eflicient.
cabinet, to make this the best year in the entire history of the local organization. -

This is the eighteenth year of the Y. W. C. A. in Franklin College and in most respects the past year has been the best of its exist-
ence. There has been an increase in membership, the roll at present containing over seventy names besides a number of honorary mem-
bers. The state pledge is H515 more than last year and the amount given to missions has grown from 5515 to E54-0. Eleven delegates
attended the Summer Conference last summerg this was the banner delegation of Indiana. Twelve persons attended the State Convention
at Earlham during November.
The effort has been to interest all girls ol' the College in Association workg to bring the sorority girl, the athletic girl, the studious
girl, the student volunteer, and the shy, neglected girl in closer fellowship.
The work centers in the devotional meetings held each Thursday evening. This meeting is usually lead by one of the girls and is
for 'fthe girls," with a view to strengthening the devotional life of the individual and encouraging a spirit of helpfulness. Bible Study,
Mission work, and Social functions have their place. A department of llible Study has been added to the regular college curriculum which
proves a help to many, but besides this classes are organized among the girls. The Y. W. and the Y. M. Associations hold joint Mission-
ary meetings each month.
Our most interesting guest this year was Miss Robinson, National Secretary of the Student Volunteer Movement, who visited with the
girls during February, getting acquainted with them and interesting them in her work. A spread was given for her with the ladies of
the faculty and the honorary members as guests. Other social functions have been given as occasion demanded.
A number of new pieces of furniture has been added to the Rest Room and there is promise of more in the near future. New Asso--
ciation Hymn Books are in use. Permanent records of the 'Cabinet are kept and Open Cabinet meetings are held every month. Be-
sides keeping all in touch with the work, this affords training of younger members for future service on the Cabinet.
The new oflicers and Cabinet have just taken their places and while an unusually large number of them have never been on the
Cabinet before a s Jirit of earnestness is manifest and the future of the Association looks bri fht, for our motto is "Not bv mi fht nor
v is v .
power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts."

Republican clubs were organized. These
clubs held regular meetings, had speak-

"Some ha' meat but canna eatg
Some would eat, but ha' no meat.
But we ha' meat and we can eat,
So God be thanked."-BURNS.
With some such idea in mind the cold lunch class has for a long time been accustomed to convene for a daily chat over their sand-
wiches. From this meeting two organizations gradually grew up. 'l'he girls had no special place of meeting, except on regular "Spread
Days," when they made use of the equipment of the Domestic Science Laboratory. 'l'he boys, however, occupied elegant apartments
in Chandler I-lall, known as the "Whiteland Rooms."
A union of these two branches took place and a formal organization was effected on February 9, when Hfteen students banded to-
gether under the title of 'l'he Country Club. It numbers among its members one august senior, three highly developed juniors, six
growing sophomores, and four tiny freshmen.
The club was not formed for the benefit of enterprising students who aspire to graduate in three years, and who are of necessity on
the lookout for all side lines available. No credit is given for the work, and no credentials are furnishedg but from an Epicurean stand-
point the club makes a decided "hit,"
The Franklin survived the summer vacation of 1908 with some difficulty, owing to the fact that no one was anxious for the position
of Business Manager at the beginning of the Fall term. Finally Arnold Doub took the honorable seat on the Board. The Board after
considerable discussion then decided to change the character of the paper, and from a monthly magazine it was made a weekly newspaper
The first number of volume six appeared as a weekly October 30th.
The weekly Franklin has attempted to appear each Wednesday, with a good assortment of news, "speils," jokes, and timely ar-
ticles. The paper as a rule is a simple folder of 4 pages. just before the Holidays a six-page football number was put out, and another
Athletic Number was produced at the conclusion of Basketball. As the keystone in the arch of College Organizations the Franklin has
undoubtedly filled the requirements.
THE PUBLICATION BOARD FOR THIS YEAR:
R. D. CHADWICK, '09 ........ Edifor-in-Chief

The Miscellaneous columns have been very interesting, andfone of the sources of popularity, fif the paper has anyl. The Athletic
columns have been especially prominent during the whole year, and no one can say that the Franklin has not "done her best" for the
teams. The Alumni department has not been regular in appearance, as seemingly our alumni have been leading quiet, industrious lives
the past year. The Exchanges have been well written up the entire year, and much space given to "News of other Colleges." The
Local Editor has reported the events of College life, routine and exciting, in the accepted manner. The Treasurer has made for himself
a reputation as a good "solicitor," and has attended to the mailing list. The Business Manager has found the weekly publication a bet-
ter advertising medium, and has had no trouble in getting more than enough "ads." The Editorials have been enthusiastic in all things
that make for a wholesome, wide-awake, student body.
Of the eight members of the Staff, five will graduate, and although next year will necessarily see five new faces, the Franklin is
bound to succeed, and if anything become larger and better, because the College paper will not impede the progress of the College. In-
deed the Franklin has accepted the role of leading and not lagging, and 1909-'10 will be no acception to the rule.

The oratorical association of Franklin College, as organized, has two aims. The first of these is to create interest in oratory and to
develop public speakers among the student body, and the second is to elevate the college to a higher position in the eyes of the people of
lndiana, especially those connected with the various institutions of learning.
In following up the first principle the association has succeeded admirably, as practically the whole student body is on its member-
ship roll. The new constitution adopted last year has also aided a great deal in awakening interest. The new method of conducting
primary contests has kindled anew the oratorical enthusiasm among the students, and the various classes have been found to support very
loyally their representatives in such contests. '
There is a constantly increasing tendency on the part of the students to take the proper training, both general and specific, to de-
velop a stronger and more finished class of orators than the college has ever known. '
Although we seem to have accomplished to a marked degree our first end, we have met continued and disastrous defeat in the state
contests. We feel that for many years our college and its representatives have received unfair treatment at the hands of the judges, and
undue criticism from many sources, but it has ever been the spirit of Franklin to look on her defeats as only rounds in the ladder which
will finally lead to victory and honor.
Our representative this year, Howard Whitcomb, in preparing and delivering his oration responded to the very best that was in him.
Even though he was not awarded a high place, we feel that he did his very best for Franklin. Keenly as we feel the chagrin of de-
feat after defeat, we still look in the future for vindication. The strong work being done in the college along all lines, and the fine spirit
displayed by faculty and students. is sure to bring about good results in oratorical lines as well as all others. And no doubt in after years
when the din of future oratorical battles has cleared away, Franklin will be found victor.

Realizing the importance of the musical phase of college life, the remaining members of last year's glee cluh decided to reorganize
this season. The club last year was too large, so the cluh was reduced from sixteen to ten. The selection of the members of the cluh
was left to Mrs. Smith, the new head of the vocal department, and from the twenty who tried out the following were chosen:
First Tenor ,,... CLARi:Ncn IJIANNA, G. W. MQCAIN

ln connection with the musical program there was organized a minstrel, with George McCain, Gerald Marshall, Frank McCracken
and John R. Nichols as the performers. ' 4
The cluh made a very successful Christmas tour through Indiana and Illinois. Although the trip was a long one, the club main-
tained its usual high standard of music, and was everywhere greeted by large audiences. Concerts were given at the following places:
Martinsville, Worthington, Bloomfield, Linton, Sullivan, Terre Haute, Paris, Ill., Marshall, Ill., Potomac, Ill., Kankakee, Ill., Goodland,
Ind., Burnettsville, Flora, and Forest.
During the spring vacation a splendid trip was taken through the southern half of the state. After a preliminary jaunt to Craw-
forclsville, and a concert in the college chapel on March 23, the club paid a visit to DuPont, Madison, Vevay and Aurora. This year
college credit was given for glee cluh work, and this has increased the interest very materially. But the success of the year's work is due
especially to Mrs. Smith, the director. .

The Land of Dreams
The first time I ever met Edith Hartford was in the spring vacation of my freshman year. I had been growing more and more
intimate with Harry Hartford ever since the night when we both pledged to the same fraternity, and already the foundations had been
laid of that friendship which I shall always consider, next to my work, the chief pleasure of my life. We were going to Hartford's
home just outside of Detroit for the holidays, and were met at the little station by the family carriage-for it was before the days of
motor cars. Harry had not expected that any of the family would meet him, and consequently I was rather surprised when a laughing
little girl of barely nine years threw her arms about my companions neck, and was solemnly introduced to me as "the kid sister." Even
at that age the child showed many signs of the rare beauty that was to be hers, but of all her features the most attractive were her eyes.
Shimmering orbs of dark brown, there was in them a constant suggestion of an infinite wealth of dreams just beyond the reach of the
observer. Such eyes I have never seen elsewhere. and they alone would have been sufficient to guarantee the child's claim to unusual
beauty in after years.
In the Hartford home I soon became almost as another son. Left an orphan when barely past infancy. 1 had been handed about
from one guardian to another for almost a dozen years, and had never really known a home. I-Iarry's parents at once took pity on me,
and within a year I was practically a member of the family. Mr. Hartford even wanted to send me through college, thus enabling me to
save my own slender-capital for a start in life, but a sort of hereditary pride kept me from drawing on the Hartford millions, and I
was content with the care and affection which those good people lavished on me. Of course I soon became Edith's favorite playmate.
and after the first few weeks she dropped the title of "Mr. Hamilton" and began to call me "john"-a habit- which proved hard to break
when, in after years, she became my pupil. The child had all that wealth could buy, yet Mr. and Mrs. Hartford took care that she
was not spoiled by it, and Edith, I sincerely believe, was not only the finest of all women, but the best of all children, that I have
ever known. Full of life she undoubtedly was, but her vivid imagination found its vent rather in fantasy than in mischief. The family
scarcely liked her frequent day-dreams, but I thought I could see something back of them, and it was under my guidance that at the
age of twelve Edith wrote her first story. It really was a clever-piece of work for a child of her age, and it proved the feature of the
entertaimnent where it was recited. After that they rather encouraged her in her dreaming, but about that time I went to Germany to
continue my studies, and for three years I saw no more of the Hartford family.
Of course I made my way first of all to their home when I returned from Germany, somewhat puffed up over my Ph.D. from
Heidelberg and an appointment to the faculty of my alma mater. Edith was at that time just beginning high school, still dreaming
and putting her fantasies down on paper for use in the composition class. Her intellect was developing as fast as her already striking
beauty 3 and at fifteen she was as good a companion as any college girl I have ever met. The family were inclined to rally her a good
deal about one or two pretended attachments in high school, and since, through ignorance of the facts, I never tormented her with refer-
ence to these affairs, we soon became greater chums than ever. And so one morning, after a hot game of tennis, she confessed to me
that she had dreamed the night before of the man she was to marry.
"Only, john," she added laughing, "I dreamed of two of them, and I don't know which was the one. One was red-readed, and
the other had long, slender fingers, and long dark hair. Now which is lic?"
My question elicited the fact that she knew no one with fingers and hair of unusual length, and she declared that all the red-
haired boys of her acquaintance were quite impossible. My reference to a red-headed schoolmate whom I had heard the family discuss-
ing drove her indoors in some confusion, and I was left to dream idly about Edith's future. But as the years passed and her experience
became wider, I think this dream slipped wholly from her memory, and though it still lurked in a forgotten corner of my recollection.
I never dreamed that it might some day be realized.

I was seated in front of a cafe on the Rue 17 janvier, inexpressibly bored by Paris and all things Parisian. The afternoon sun
was very hot, and though the tables on the pavement were shaded by the trees the place was by no means comfortable. Harry Hartford
and his wife, with Edith and a party of her college friends, were exploring the Norwegian iiords in their yacht that summer, but a
congress of psychologists in Paris had prevented me from accepting their urgent invitation to join them. I was to meet them at Ant-
werp on the 20th of August, and l1ad been trying without much success to pass away the two weeks intervening between 'the close of the
congress and that date. My acquaintance in Paris was not large, and consequently I was more than surprised when a tall, dark man,
with long hair and iiowing bow tie, came up to me and wrapped his long, slender fingers around my hand.
"Hello, Hamilton !" he exclaimed. "What in the world are you doing here P" Then I recognized him.
"Well, well, Bassett! I haven't seen you since the doctor handed us our diplomas and sent us out into the world--and that was ten
"Time seems to be treating you well," he responded smilingly. "You are full professor, now, are you not P" I nodded. "And my
friends at the Sorbonne tell me that your writings are becoming authoritative along your line."
I had scarcely thought that my monographs were so well known as that, and as his conversation flowed rapidly along it seemed to
me to be considerable more effusive than our past acquaintance warranted. I had not known Bassett at all well in college-but then he was
a man who had no intimates. I had known him as the rest of the college had known him--a violinist of remarkable talent, but moody and
unsociableg and there was a look in his cold, dark eyes that l had always distrusted. Now, however, l put down his excessive cordiality
to the pleasure of meeting an old classmate in a strange land. And indeed, as he rambled along, he was really a charming conversa-
tionalistg and as he spoke of his music I recalled some of his compositions which had been accorded unstinted praise by the critics.
Clearly Bassett had "come out" a great deal since leaving college, and when he left me I was glad to make one or two engagements
with him for trips about town.
It was the day after one of thesethat l ran across .lim Brennan, the secretary of the American embassy, and the only man in
.Paris whom I really knew at all well. Characteristically he blurted out the subject that was uppermost in his mind.
"Saw you with Jerry Bassett last night," he remarked. "Where'd you run across that fellow P" I explained and then asked what
he knew of him.
"Little of anything and less of good," was the reply. "He is undoubtedly brilliant-probably the best American musician in Parisg
but I believe he's thoroughly unprincipled. He's been the hero of one or two sensational affairs in the Latin Quarter, though how
much of what they say is true and how much is only talk is more than I know. But I do know that three years ago he was about to
marry one of the wealthiest heiresses in Paris, and her relatives broke it off at the last moment. It was an awful blow to him, for his
tastes are extravagant. and l guess he hasn't much money. Really, though, I don't know much about himg and he may actually be a
very decent chapg" and old Brennan, who was the best-hearted fellow in the world, wasted many words in trying to drive away the
had .impression that his first remarks had created. l scarcely thought there was enough in what he said to justify me in what would
have been positive incivility, since Bassett was apparently so eager for my company, so I was with my classmate a great deal until I
left Paris. ' '
At Antwery I met the Hartford party-Harry and his wife, abrace or two of cousins, and Edith and some of her college friends.
I knew them all, and some of the younger ones had either already been in my classes, or expected to be in the following year, which
was Edith's last in college. The day before the yacht was to sail for New York Harry and I were taking Mrs. Harry and Edith on a
shopping trip, when Gerald Bassett met us in the street. ,
"My dear Hamilton!" he exclaimed. "I thought you were in Berlin," and many months had passed before I recalled that I myself
had told him that I was going to meet the Hartfords at Antwerp. Had my memory not betrayed me at the time, much trouble could
have been saved, but as it was l could not but greet him cordially. Harry was delighted to run across a classmate, and promptly in-
vited him to luncheon on board the yacht. I am bound to say that 'Bassett played the cosmopolite to perfection at our board 5 and
when he carelessly remarked that lie was soon sailing for Philadelphia to conduct a series of concerts, Harry at once declared that he
must go with us. He returned to Paris, and a week later we picked him up at Havre and started across the Atlantic.
Almost from the first he was much in Edith's company. At the very beginning he won her interest by remarking that his dead
sister had belonged to her sorority, and recalled a few of his experiences when he had been a loyal "supporter." With this as a foun-
dation, he began to build up a superstructure of good comradeship that had in it not the slightest trace of sentimentality, but which
none the less managed to keep Edith by his side, and effectually to shut out anyone else who might wish to spend much time with her.
"Anyone else," in this case, might be particularized to "Frank Barlow," for the boy was fairly wild about her. Ever since her fresh-
man year Edith had without doubt been the most popular girl in collcgeg and with reason, for in beauty, accomplishments, intellect
and common sense there was no one who could approach her. Yet she had never had a real "case," though in her first three years at
school she had turned away a dozen admirers, who were never greatly missed, as there were always others to take their places. Several
of them had refused for a time to be sent awayg and Frank Barlow had won fame as the man who had persisted in his refusal. For
three years he had had eyes for no girl but Edith, yet as far as I could see he was to her nothing but a friend such as I should have
been had I been ten years younger, though if I had been of Edith's age and of a less serious temperament, I fear that even I might
have abandoned my Platonic sentiments for a more perilous emotion. But however, that might be, Barlow was Edith's most devoted
cavalier, and was rewarded by more of her society, all in all, than any other one man.
l-le came to me the second day out with a countenance so downcast that I knew that something had gone wrong. It seems that
he and Heath Norvell and Grace Alcott had wanted Edith to join them in a game of bridge, but she had preferred to read Keats with
llassett. 'I'he boy made nie his conhdante in many things, and I hail long known every detail of his love affairs. I am bound to say.
too, that I desired nothing more than that he should win herg for the lad was really a splendid fellow. With none of Edith's bril-
liancy, he was a thorough studentg and what he once got stayed with him. I-Iis work in my department had been solgood that I wanted
him to teach, but he preferred a place as agent for his father's automobilesg and after all, there is no person who needs a knowledge of
psychology more than a salesman. Until he should take up his work after his graduation, he could think of nothing but Edith Hart-
ford. For the rest, he was a shining light of the gridiron where his red head was seen plunging through the line or dashing around the
ends with great frequency, was a sincere and earnest Y. M. C. A. worker, and was generally liked by all who knew him.
Long before the voyage was over, Barlow was the only one on the boat who had not succumbed to Bassett's personal charm. This
quality, latent during his college days, had since been developed to a remarkable extentg and even I at most times was ready to bow
down to him like the rest. But once or twice, gazing deep into his eyes, I thought that far down in them I could see a foundation of
quicksand underlying the quiet surface. Still, when he took his violin and let his fingers ramble over the strings, I forgot all my
doubts, and even Barlow at such times lost sight of the man in the musician.
It was at dinner the night before we reached New York that someone mentioned the Dramatic Club. 'l'his was Edith's chief in-
terest in college. For two years she had been the "star," and now she was planning to write a play for production in the winter term.
Something was said about this, and Edith laughingly called across the table:
'fCan't you come out and see our play, Mr. Bassett? Really, I wish you could." Quick as a Hash came his answer.
"Make it an opera and l'll write the score." j
"Oh, you wouldn't, really?"
"I mean it. l'll write it in Philadelphia this fall, and if you want me to, I'll direct the orchestra when you put it on. I haven't been
back to college since I graduated," he added by way of explanation, "and I'd like to see the old place once more." And so it was settledg
and everyone was happy but Frank Barlow, whom I found in the bow an hour later looking as if he wanted to jump overboard.

One November night a telephone call summoned me to the chapter house of ICdith's sorority. The music had come from Phila-
delphia that clay, and I was honored by being the first to hear it. I had already offered a .few suggestions on the book, and after hearing
the score from beginning to end I realized that "'l'he Land of Dreams" was a light opera the equal of which had not appeared for half
a dozen years. Clearly our Dramatic Club would gain much glory from its production, and the college correspondents had already made
considerable capital out of Bassett's connection with the affair. The entire matter got a great deal of publicity, and when Bassettncame
to town after New Years interest in the forthcoming production was already high.
Ressler, the professor of public speaking, had selected the cast. Of course Edith took the leading r6le, Madeleine, with a junior
named Maynard cast for julian, the hero. But during the holidays Maynard incautiously skated through some thin ice, and was pulled
out to face an attack of pneumoniag so the rehearsals started with Frank Barlow as julian. Ressler drilled them at firstg but most of
the cast were experienced, and after the iirst two weeks Bassett was completely in charge. More and more frequently I began to drop
in on their rehearsalsg for from the standpoint of a psychologist there was much food for thought in the drills. As the rehearsals pro-
gressed and the finer qualities of the opera began to appear, Bassett's hold on Edith seemed steadily to grow stronger. Several times I
wondered if it were not my duty to say 'something to her, but always'it occurred to me that really I had 'nothing against Bassett except
a certain unaccountable distrust, backed by one 'or two remarks of jim Brennan's. Time and again I had it in mind to write to jim and
ask him what he really knew about Bassett, but each time some new aspect of the man's character puzzled me and caused me to hesitate.
Clearly he had changed greatly since his college days, and perhaps now he might be trying to struggle upward out of a more or less
dubious past. If this should be the case, I should have disliked above all hings to have hindered him in his attempt to riseg so time after
time I stopped just on the point of demanding an explanation from Brennang and the play progressedg and Frank Barlow grew more
downcast than ever. In his acting, as in everything else, Barlow made up for his lack of genius by sheer hard work, and his development
of the part of julian strengthened the only place where the opera might have fallen short. The boy held himself well in hand during
his scenes with Edith, and their duet in the final act was really a marvelous piece of work for amateurs. This number, in which julian
discovers that his supposedly hopeless love for Madeleine is in reality reciprocated, was probably the best bit of music that Bassett ever
wroteg and before long it was evident that it would be the more than brilliant climax of a brilliant production.
At the dress rehearsal Bassett was at his best. Under his direction the opera moved without the slightest friction from the overture
to the final curtain, so well that its instant success was assured. Of course, Edith was the most brilliant of all, and at the close of the
rehearsal Bassett rushed to her and caught both her hands.
"Wonderful! Brilliant! Marvelous!" he exclaimed. "I thought I knew you well, but the half was never told me." They had
slipped a little apart from the others, and I think that no one was looking at them but myself. He bent his eyes on hers in a long,
soulful gazeg and suddenly her head dropped, and with face averted she darted away. I went to my apartments, and wrote a long and
careful letter to the man who could tell me what I wanted to know about Bassett, and then retired with a conscience rather uneasy at
not having done so before. When I opened the paper the next morning, the first thing that my eyes fell on was a brief account of the
suicide, the day before, of James F. Brennan, secretary of the American embassy at Paris.
The first appearance of "The Land of Dreams" surpassed all our expectations, and no one felt uneasy over the fact that during the
spring vacation the club was to play it in the principal cities of the Middle West. Within the week arrangements had been made for
its production the next year by a professional cast, though at the time we never dreamed that it would be the success of the season.
Next to Edith, Barlow came in for the highest praise, but it had no effect on the black shadow that seemed to be settling on him. The
boy was apparently on the point of giving up, and it was a hard thing for him to do.
Having nothing else in particular to do at the time, I decided to accompany the club on the spring trip. Everywhere "The Land
of Dreams" became instantly the rage, and the club made enough out of the sale of the music alone to pay the year's expenses. Bassett
rather sought me out in the rare moments when he was absent from Edithg and under the spell of his bewitching music, I was further
influenced by his attractive personality until I began again to lose my doubts. I saw little of Barlow until we were in Chicago, on
the afternoon preceding the last performance. The boy came into my room unannounced as he was accustomed to do 3 and then without
a word sat down and burst into tears. I was dumbfounded, but waited in silence till he again got control of himself, then rather sternly
I demanded an explanation.
"It's no use, Mr. Hamilton," he broke out desperately. "She doesn't care a rap for me. I came to you just now because I was
afraid that if ,I stayed alone I'd kill myself."
"Stop right now I" I commanded. "'I'hat's enough of that sort of foolishness. How do you know she doesn't care a rap for you?
Have you asked her lately?"
"Not since Christmas," he admitted. "But anybody can see that she's in love with Bassett." I thought myself that this was quite
probable, but that was hardly the time for me to say so.
"Frank, my boy," I said, speaking from an absolute lack of experience in such matters, "go to her once more and state your case as
well as you know how. lJon't quit without at least one more trial." '
"I don't know when I can," he responded in dejection. "She's with Bassett now, and he's giving a supper for her after the play.
But I'll see what I can dog" and presently he left me feeling almost as gloomy as himself.
I dined late that evening, and it was already time for the overture when, at the next table, I saw an old friend of my Heidelberg
days-Max Stroebel, the western representative of the Belasco interests. The best type of the German-American, Max had gained a
strong hold on me in our student days, but for half a dozen years I had not seen him. Naturally our meeting- was joyful and our conver-
sation lengthy. Eventually the talk came round to our opera, and Max, like everyone else, was instant to praise it.
"By the way," he remarked, "has this man Bassett landed an heiress yet P" Instantly I demanded his meaning.
"Why, it's simple enough," was the response. "Bassett got a pretty fair amount of money from those Philadelphia concerts, but
he blew in most of it on the Great White Way. He got a loan from a Jew friend of mine before he came West, and it is known among
his acquaintances that he had promised to pay all his debts in the spring, as he was about to become engaged to a girl with more money
than he could throw away."
'I'hat was enough. With a hasty farewell to Stroebel, I haileLl a cab and dashed to the theater. So that was his game! Again
and again I cursed myself for my blindness in allowing the man's pleasing 'manner and brilliant music to blind me to what all along I
had really known him to be. I would see Edith without delay and talk to her as Harry would have talked. But when I reached the
theater, just before the last act began, Edith was in her dressing room: and it was by the merest chance that I stumbled on Bassett in
the wings. .
"You scoundrel !" I panted. "I see through your game! After this keep away from that girl, do you hear P"
"Really, this is outrageous, Hamilton!" he flared. "What do you mean ?"
"Mean? I mean that your attempt to marry Edith Hartford, so that you can have more money to spend in the bright-light district.
is going to be stopped." His whole manner changed. '
"Hamilton, you are mistaken," he said rapidly. "From the bottom of my heart I love that girl--I love her for a thousand reasons,
heiress or pauper. Ever since last summer-but I haven't time to explain now, already I am delaying the curtain. I'll see you after
the show." And he was gone.
"She glided into his embrace,"

l did not know what to think-in faet, the only idea that was very
prominent in my mind was a vague wonder whether llarlow had had

julian stretehed out his arms- and with a look in her eyes that no
man had ever hefore seen, Madeleine glided into his emlmraee. 'l'he
house thundered forth in wild applause, and in the orchestra Hassett
dropped his haton and huried his fave in his hands.
'l'he mad storm of applause continued, but it seemed to me that l
eould notiee a sharper eraekling through it all. Suddenly the tumult
died down for a moment, and the comparative silence was rent hy a
dull explosion. 'l'he painted background dissolved in tiames, and a cloud of smoke poured out into the body of the theater. The asbestos
curtain refused to descend, and the applause was succeeded by an uproar of screams and shouting as the audience struggled towards the
exits. And then occurred the thing which, of all my experience, has given me the greatest pride in my alma mater. Bassett snatched up
his violin and began the overture, and with the flames all but scorching them, the students of the orchestra took up their instruments
and played as accurately as they had ever done at rehearsal. The crowdlunder the infiuence of the unshaken music, gradually became
calm, and passed out in a fairly orderly manner, and though clots of fare were dropping from the flies, the youngsters in the orchestra
played steadily on till the last man had passed through the doors. By that time all one side of the house was on fire, but I followed the
orchestra and some of the chorus down a side staircase which as yet was comparatively free from smoke, and reached the stage door in
Outside in the street the shouting of orders, the throbbing of engines. and the roar of the flames which already enveloped half'of
the building and were leaping from the roof, made it difficult to get one's bearings, but it seemed that everyone had gone out unhurt.
Then, as Edith turned to me with a breathless smile, Heath Norvell grasped me roughly by the arm.
"Barlow! I-Ie's in there yet! He was at the head of those stairs that fell in! My God, the whole place is ai'ire."
I am glad to say that I had suliicient presence of mind to grasp Edith tightly, for she sprang at once toward the blazing theater.
It seemed to me that there could be no hope of rescue, and I cried out within me at the injustice of bereaving this girl just when she
had found her great happiness. 'l'hen a tall figure brushed past me-Gerald Bassett shot towards us one inscrutable glance from his
cold, shifty eyes, and darted through a door from which the smoke was pouring in waves.
As soon as Edith saw that I would not let her go she became quiet, and without a move we both stood gazing at the burning build-
ing. Already the fire chief had given up the theater, and the police began to push the crowd back out of danger from falling walls.
It seemed an eternity since Bassett had disappeared, with centuries between the heartbeatsg and Edith's dreamy brown eyes began slowly to
glisten with tears. 'l'hen from the same door, the woodwork of which was now ablaze, staggered Gerald Bassett+his face blackened,
his hair singed, his clothing smoking, but bearing in his arms an unconscious form. A score of hands received Barlow, and the crowd
gathered about the physician who at once took charge of him. I was about to follow, when I noticed Bassett turning back to the theater,
which was now spirting fire from every opening.
"Stop, man l" I screamed. "What-where?" He smiled coldly.
"My violin. I left it in there. I must have it." I knew he was lying, but before I could say another word he had turned aside,
and with a wave of his long lingers and a toss of his long hair, he vanished. I ran to the nearest squad of firemen, imploring their
aid, but they shook their heads,

and indeed, even to me it was plain that nothing could be done. n prese y 1 A ,
But just behind me Frank Barlow had opened his eyes, and Edith, on her knees beside him in the brimming gutter, was quite
openly kissing his hands. And seeing them I turned away, for they were already in the land of dreams.

I'llJI'l'UR'lS N1l'I'l'2-VIIIIC following are extracts taken from two diaries. 'l'hey have been obtained through much trouble and stealth
6490 9 wg
and for that reason we regret very much that we are unable to publish the names ofthe authors.
'l'uu5day, December 15, 6100 P. INI. lt is just alter dinner and I haven't a single lesson. Iiut l'm going to the game anyhow. I
have aseason ticket and I have gone to every game yet, to save my money. We had a mighty good dinner tonight. I ought to study now
but I don't feel like it. 'Psychology teaches that we should do what we feel in the humor to do. 'l'hat won't always work, l'm afraid.
I know what I'll do-l'll bring my diary up to date. My! l haven't written one word since the Basketball season opened. l'll just
have to skip a lot of stuil. Itls too bad when things happen so rapidly that l haven't time to write them down. My! this being a
Senior is strenuous business! 'I'his is the lirst year we ever had a Gym and we have had about two games a week. Coach tloheen is try-
ing out the talent by interclass games so he can pick out the "Varsity," fit Jne ol' the juniors called it the 'AVeracity" team, the other day.
Coach eouldn't find five for that team ll Who would have ever thought our meek little college possessed so much college spirit? Class
lines are rigidly drawn and everyone is loyal to his number from the lfreshies to the Seniors. Our team has lost only one game and there
is just one more and the championship is ours. 'l'he silver cup is bran new and is a perfect beauty. '09 will look well engraved on
it. Who could be expected to study when there's so much going on and so much to think of. l'm like Chink Bryan,-"I don't be-
lieve in letting my studies interfere with my education." We sit around over here and talk about those games by the hour. Mother
Smith called us down about eleven o'cloek the other night when we were in Ruth l,aw's room fussing over Chad and llugs Brown at the top
ol' our voices. I'm so glad we gave those juniors all that is coming to them. 'I'he Sophs were dead easy. Now these pesky Ifreshmen and
we haven't done so bad. --- I was just thinking,-what if they should beat us tonight? Oh, but they wont! They say Gaston
is sick. I'm so sorry! That is, I don't want him to die, but I don't think he ought to try to play tonight. I'm sure it would injure his
health. With him out, we' have a chance. -1- My room is a fright! Mac and I were studying our Philosophy this afternoon
when all at once we had a brilliant idea. We thought it would be fine to have a spread for the boys after the game, if they won, and
celebrate. It was plum three o'clock when we thought of it and we hustled around to find some more of the Senior girls. Here is the
stuff spread all over the floor. The Webster girls made the fruit salad and it is just delicious! We have loads too many sandwiches
but then the boys will be hungry and we want plenty. The beans are to be baked over at Marguerite's and the escalloped oysters, too.
They will be done just when we are ready for them and will be piping hot. Pansy and Anna are baking some oysters, too. I do want
to have plenty of everything. I hate to quit hungry when I go to a spread. I musn't forget to put down about my Christmas present I
got this evening. Mac and Claribel were down on their knees making mayonnaisse dressing for the salad when there came a knock at
the door, Now I knew that none of the girly would knock like that, so I wasn't surprised that Ma Bergen's voice answered when we
asked who was there before we opened the door. By the time the two chafing dishes were snufied out and the stuff shoved under the bed,
and the door unlocked, Ma Bergen was down the hall on her way to her room, evidently thinking there was the best place for her after
such a cool reception. And when I opened the door, I found a pretty paper-basket for Christmas, bearing Ma. Bergen's compliments!
She hadn't come to catch us at all! I felt so ashamed I don't know what to do. Guess I'l1 go down and tell her about it tomorrow.
My! we had to give forty cents a dozen for the eggs that went in the salad. It's awful expensive to have spreads! Now if the kids
would come on and help me carry this grub over to the Gym, I'd go to the game. I hear Mac yelling now. The rest of the girls will
find this all out if she don't shut up. I guess this is all for now.
10:00 the same night. I have a whole bushel to write but am just too dead tired and excited. I-Iere's to my little trundle bed. I'll
get up real early in the morning and finish this story. Won't it be interesting to read fifty years from now!
Wednesday Night, December 16. Of course I overslept and missed my breakfast, this morning. I-Iere goes some more on my diary.
We got the stuff locked up in the dressing room G. K. The whistle blew and the game began. Such a crowd of people and every bloomin'
one except the Seniors yelled for the Freshmen. I knew it was going to be a close game. Even the Sophs, the old time friends of the
Seniors, turned traitor and rooted till they were hoarse for the Freshies. It seemed that every time the Seniors made a basket the Freshies
would make one too. The score tied on 9 and the people were so excited that they were sitting on the edge of their seats or standing up
yelling like Camanchee Indians. The Freshies got two more field throws and the majority of the crowd went frantic. The score again
tied on 13, the Freshies were ahead the end of the first half and we were scared to death. They ran their score up to 19 in the beginning
of the second half. But the Seniors must have thought of the baked beans in store for them if they won for they took a fresh start and tied
the score again. Then for several minutes it stood 22-20 in favor of the Seniors and we began to have renewed visions of a delicious vic-
tory and delicious spread. How we did yell. It made mighty little difference with us that the crowd was against us for we have always had
plenty of what Emerson calls "Self reliance" but in the common college vernacular is known as nerve. We have always appreciated
our importance and lived up to it. We entered when the new administration began, and are graduating as the largest class in the history
of the institution and will also celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the college in june. I sometimes wonder how the college can
run at all when we graduate and are gone. It seems to me there will be such a vacuum. We tried our best to keep the Freshies from
making that extra basket. I don't think I ever wanted anything in my life as much as I wanted that game. There were times when
I could hardly get my breath l was so excited. I twisted my season ticket all to pieces and got up and down a thousand times. How
I wished the whistle would blow while we were ahead. One field thrown and a foul put us five to the good and the whistle blew "time
up." The Seniors were the gladdest bunch l ever saw. We wasted very little time rejoicing but made a bee line for the grub. The lock
had been tampered with but not broken. We found the stuff all right. But the bunch that went after the beans and the oysters had a
different tale to tell. The stuff had been stolen! Swiped, so it is called. If a poor wash-woman's children had been starving and she had
taken our stuff to feed them she would have been put in jail but college folks A'7Ul-f7l'I, the stuff and it was all right! No sir, we're not that
easy. If the law won't handle them, we will ! I remember seeing six people, three couples, leave the Gym at the beginning of the second half.
I just supposed they were disgusted with the game. I never thought that bunch would .vlvall l hoped to goodness the stuff made them
sick. I would just like to tell them that we had plenty without what they stole. I am still so excited I can't sleep. The boys are going to
shear the offenders if they can catch them. I bet they don't get Frank McCracken. He is always into some scrape and will know enough
to stay inside. I loaned them my scissors. We wanted to go along but they wouldn't let us.
This morning Gerald and Warren looked badly peeled. There was hair all over the campus. And I must tell what happened to
the girls. All the Senior girls got together and planned a careful campaign against the thieves. They knew something was coming to
them. We armed ourselves with towels to tie up their mouths with, ropes to tie their hands, a pair of scissors, a bottle of iodine. etc.
We went in installments. Some met at Anna Bryan's and some of us went up the alley back of Allen's. My, it was dark, and we saw two
men watching us. I am so afraid of a man! Marguerite and her mother went to prayer meeting according to program and that left
Lucy and Thomasine alone. just as we got to the door they came out and we grabbed them. We tied them tight and fast and blind-
folded them. Then we took out our scissors. I.ucy had a spell when we pretended to cut their hair. We were really cutting some old
combings, and it was as much fun to hear them squeal as it is to eat good hot beans. They expected to be bald headed. Then we applied
the brush and painted a beautiful "T" on their foreheads for "thief," an "O" for "oysters" on one cheek and a "B" for "beans" on the
other. It was done in a very becoming brown. We had the word of two good physicians that iodine wouldn't hurt them. It will stay
there awhile, that's all. Then we took them to the swimming pool and put them in. How the poor kids did beg! Claribel turkeyed
clear out. She didn't want to duck them when the time came. We saw some folks on the way over and we were going to pretend
that it was an initiation of the Pi Phis if the juniors attacked us, and the rest of us were going to hide. To all their pleadings we an-
swered that they should have thought of that when they were eating our good oysters and beans. The racket we made! You can't
keep a bunch of girls still if the world would come to an end. The water washed off nearly all of the dope and Lucy was so sporty
that she wanted to wear it to chapel tomorrow so we doped them again. Tommy wasn't so anxious for the second dose but she took it
meekly. Poor kid is going on the Glee Club trip and she will carry the advertisement of the Seniors' spunk along with her. I am
anxious for morning to come to see how they look at chapel. Here's to bed. ---
December 17. Studying -- I wonder who that is at the door. I'll go see. I've kept my door locked all day. They are trying
to get me to duck me. The bath tubs have all been full of water all evening. It was a Freshman who wanted me to help her with a
French sentence. I don't get caught on any such a hook as that. Bait your hooks better than that, Freshies, or you wont get me to duck.
They have tried all sorts of dodges to get in here. I looked out over my transom a while ago and there were a lot of masked figures
ready to grab me. They say they will wait till commencement day and then paint us up with green paint. We tried to get Myra but she
has been conspicuous by her absence or by her locked-up-ness ever since her feed of beans. The

FROM THE jUNlOR'S DIARY.
Tuesday, December 15. What is doing, I wonder? There is such a stir among the Senior girls here in the Dorm, and such flying
around I have not seen since the Thanksgiving spread. Oh! I have it. Tonight the last inter-class game for the championship comes
off, and the Senior girls who are so sure of a victory over the Freshmen are preparing a spread. Oh, for a lark! I wish we could
swipe the fruit salad which the girls are so diligently making in Mary's room, but how, that's the question. There is the dinner bell,
farewell, fond dreams.
9 P. M. Within my young remembrance I have never had such a lark! Oh, dear! I am so tired and excited that I cannot sleep.
The game, the game, what excitement! It ran rife and never was such support given to the Freshmen, even the Sophs forsook the
Seniors, and the howling, yelling, cheering mob urged the Freshmen on. lt became almost unbearable for the Seniors were ahead, and
it was goodbye Freshmen. Our indignation knew no bounds for the Seniors throughout the whole basketball season had shown such
a tyrannical spirit, that their exultation over previous victories made them utterly despicable, so in order to teach them a much needed
lesson, the six of us left the game at the beginning of the second half.
After scampering across the campus, we succeeded in capturing all of the beans and a part of the oysters. I never was so excited in
my life. Hysteria almost seized me, but on we sped. The attempts to capture other trophies were futile so the next question was where
to dispose our booty? As we neared the corner, we almost ran into a Senior hurrying toward the Gym but just then the arc of the street
light changed, throwing us in the dark and we were saved. How dark the college was! so still and spectral i11 the weird shadows we cast
as creeping stealthily along the dimly lighted corridors, we stumbled heedlessly up three flights of stairs. Yes, the sewing room was
just the place to go, so breathless we burst into the room in a perfect frenzy of tittering excitement and fear.
The steaming beans and oysters! Paste-board boxes, cut up spoons and we dipped out of one pan in real primitive style, all laugh-
ing, joking, and listening, by spells in the dimly lighted room, and behind barred doors. Having eaten all we could of the forage, we
hid the pans in the table drawers, slipped out of the college and made for the Greek's. Eleven o'clock and all is well, but what comes
next on the program, only fate knows.
Wednesday, December 16. --- The morning has passed in safety but the Senior caucus bodes us no good, for by two of the
boys' shaved heads, part of the Senior vengeance is evident as are the painted faces of the girls. The grab bag tonight was a failure as
far as sociability goes for we were all worn out with yesterday's excitement and today's exams. What fun we have just had tormenting
the Seniors, behind their locked doors, by scampering up and down the halls and taunting them, for they are all cowards, bah! I cannot
study, I am tired, oh, when was I ever so weary of mind and body, for when excitement ceases, I am all in.
'l'hursda,y, December l7. --- In touching the Sophs the Seniors made a dreadful mistake, for they have vowed to pay them back
in their own coin. The junior boys' threats are awful, what shall I do? The terror of the old class scraps is beginning to rise, but it
shall be put down for the thing is growing old and is not so much fun as it was. Every nerve in my body is tired, oh, for tomorrow,
then rest, rest, rest!
The concert is over, and I am in my room again with only one more day's work before us. My poor dear roses look tired, too, so
after I put them in the cool for the night, 1 shall lay me down and sleep.
Friday, December 18. --- The day is done and I am ready to start for home, sweet home. How queer everything seems, just
like myself, but 1 love my dear old Senior friends more than ever, even if they do think I am angry. The fever is quelled, both sides
are appeased, the forces are vanishing, the young gallant has come for my suit case, so farewell juniors and classmates, I'm off, good-

,az old Mt-Minn ville
"Who will win out? Our men will.
We have won out. McM1NNv11.1.l-:."
This yell rang out lustily from more than two hundred throats in Riley Hall of the old college at McMinnville, Oregon. There was
a general rushing to and fro with cries, "Lane! Lane! Where's Lane P" But Lane was not to be found. After the announcement that he
had won the state oratorical contest for McMinnville, Robert Lane had slipped through a side door and disappeared.
The spirit of MeMinville ran high that night. Long had she contended for honors in the annual contest which was held among the
colleges of the state at the commencement season. This year the contest had been held in their home college and, Robert Lane, a senior.
had so far eclipsed his competitors, that the other colleges clapped their hands in admiration at the close of his oration.
"Bob" as he was popularly called among his fellows took no part in the joyous celebration of the students. just outside the door.
after he had stolen from the hall, he joined a young lady who was waiting for him. Together they struck into a bypath that led away
across the campus to the northeast. They had walked for some time in silence, when she reached him her hand and said, "Mr. Lane, that
was gloriousg McMinnville is proud of you and so am I." "Now that's something like congratulations, Miss Haywood," he broke in, taking
her hand. "I'm glad I won it if for nothing else but this" and his voice rang with genuine pleasure. For a time they had been walking
under the broad spreading trees of the campus but now they emerged into the open and the early summer moon shown full upon them.
lf the moon could have described them as they came from under the trees, he would have told us nothing remarkable. They were an
ordinary couple, such as might be found strolling about the campus of any of our American colleges.
She was Frances Haywood. the daughter of the minister, and had also just completed her college course. Had the people stopped to
study her appearance they would have declared her a beauty. She was of medium height and a decided brunette, her hair being as black
as midnight while her complexion was as clear as noonday. Her dark piercing eyes were tinged with long lashes above which was a
rather bold, slightly overhanging brow. She possessed a plump figure and gave the general appearance of a mellow but strong disposition.
Robert Lane was slightly taller but built rather more sparingly than sheg had deep brown eyes and brown hair. The sad luster
and sometimes the flashing of his eyes told one he was an individual capable of deep feeling and of great fortitude should he be called
upon to undergo any struggle. He was an orphan, who having received little money from his parents was accustomed to hard work.
Soon after the congratulations, Frances glancing into the face of her companion noticed that an expression of deep pain had taken
the place of the one of pleasure which had been there a moment before. She thought at first to enquire about it but did not do so.
Silently they walked together the remaining half mile to her home. Neither was embarrassed at the silence of the other. After the ex-
citement of the evening Frances was not surprised that he did not care to talk.
At her home he bade her a cordial good night and turned about but not to go to his room. He had had too much excitement and
his thoughts were too busy for him to sleep much that night. Soon he left the sidewalk and struck into a path which led into an
orchard. A few of the fruit trees were in full bloom, so the fragrance which was stirred by a slight eastern breeze made this a pleas-
ant place to be on this beautiful early summer night. He walked along as one I10t unfamiliar with the place. The orchard was one
belonging to the minister and lay just back of the parsonage.
At the far end of the orchard stood the old church, a big building of brick and stone, one side of which fthe side toward the
orchardl was covered over with vines. A path led from the parsonage just back of which was a garden, directly to the church, a little
more than an eighth of a mile away. Another path ran obliquely through the orchard crossing the other near the middle of the orchard
and leading down a little hill at the west side, at the foot of which in a secluded place was to be found an old lawn swing and a stone seat.
It was into the latter path that Robert Lane had struck after leaving the Haywood home. He crossed the orchard, went down the
hill and threw himself into the old stone seat. I-le rested his elbow on one of its arms and with his chin in his hands sat for a time
scarcely thinking coherently at all, after his confusion of ideas during the last half hour. Presently he began to go over in his mind
the events of the evening and said to himself: "Well, Bob, old man, you won out tonight, didn't you?" and the view of the crowded
hall with himself on the platform, appeared before him. He had been so wrapped in his subject and so inspired by the crowd of atten-
tive listeners that he had excelled even his own fondest hopes. His whole being had been awakened and stirred to its depths so that he
had responded in a way that had created a thrill of surprise among the McMinnville students, although they knew he had some power as
an orator. He had opened his mouth and the eloquence had fairly rolled from his lips while his expression of face and body has re-
sponded with that readiness, which is characteristic of active young manhood. He could speak, he was sure of that, and in a way to
move and win the applause of even a critical audience. But although these thoughts brought their thrill of delight, they were fol-
lowed by thoughts which were less pleasant. He loved oratory. 'l'here was a fascination about it which held him almost in a spell. It
had had to do with the ambition of his life. 'l'here was a pleasure and thrill about it which he could not describe. His friends were
expecting him to begin the study of law, and with his diligence and natural powers there was every reason to believe that he could win
a place high up in the legal world. Even now as he thought of it he could see himself passing through every stage of preparation and
could picture to himself his early experience on the road to fame and plenty. The idea of not being cramped for money, of having a
comfortable home of his own was not among the least of these thoughts. And in that home-well, he could always see in the background
of all his day dreams the face and form of his companion of the evening, Frances Haywood. Why not realize upon his dream? He
hoped, felt, almost dared to believe that she cared for him and after the winning of the contest, victory in the legal world he could
surely win. Why not? There was nothing to hinder. Yes, there was. lt was that which had caused the expression of pain just after
he hadreceived Frances Haywood's congratulations. What was it? Nothing. Almost nothingg at least, he could not explain it.
He just knew it was not his work. Recently he had not been able to reason about it. That was one reason he knew it was not his work.
When he attempted to reason it out, he became lost in the glory and glamor, which he believed would surely attend such a career and
forget to ask whether or not he would be able to help anyone or do any good in such work. Sometimes he even thought he didn't care
whether he should be able to help anyone or not just so he attained that honor-crowned dome which he could see looming up in the
future. At this point he grew ashamed. Was he Robert Lane. the son of john Lane, who had taught and believed that man's whole
duty was to assist in raising his fellow man? Would not his father blush with shame and indignation if he could know the thoughts of
this his son? He was not low-minded. He loved, believed in and worshipped God, and then he remembered that God's only son. "was
tempted in every part like as we are," like as I am, thought he. Is it possible that there can be a parallelism between the temptations
of jesus and those of mine? "Command that these stones be made bread." Was that not one of the things which was tempting him?
Was he not planning to use his new God-given powers to satisfy an appetite and a mere sensuous desire? "Cast thyself down." Show
that you have great power. Make a spectacle of your powers received from God. Was not that what he was craving to do? "All
these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." Had he not also reached a mountain top and was not the devil
pointing out the kingdoms of the world and the glory to them, and he, Robert Lane was ready to purchase them,-and at what a cost-
he must fall down and worship him. No, never! If he would be worthy the name Christian, if he would even be a man he must answer
wigh his life. "Man shall not live by bread alone"-"Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy
God and him only shalt thou serve." That should be his motto toward which he would work continually. But was it not his duty to
provide a living and a good living, for the one he loved? Could he, as a man, ask her to come from a home almost luxurious, to live a life
of poverty? He must have time to think these things over. But he could not do so sanely here where every one he met would feed his
pride with congratulations for his victory. He could not decide anything which would make or mar his whole life's aim in the
presence of objects which would influence and prejudice. He must even leave her, Frances Haywood. Yes, even more, she
must drop entirely out of his life until he could solve some things which were pressing themselves upon him. He must go
away, and that too before his resolution had left him. He' would go at once-tomorrow-today-for looking up he saw the
sky already turning gray with the approaching dawn. He arose, stretched his limbs, for they were almost benumbed by his
long sitting, and hurried across the campus to his rooms. His mind was busy formulating plans for his departure. He was not
long in deciding where he would go. He had an uncle living at Butte, Montana, who had written to him recently that if he
could receive no better offer, there was an opening for teachers in Butte. He had urged that although the position did not pay
very largely, a change from the pleasant surroundings of McMinnville college life, to the wildly grand life among the ruggedest and
roughest part of the Rocky Mountains would be an experience which would be likely to change the perspective of a young man just
entering into active life. He would go to this uncle and obtain a position as teacher, and spend a year in real work, and then cross-
section his mind to see what his attitude toward himself and toward the world would be. He hurried into his room, hastily packed his
trunk, wrote a brief letter to Frances, and then, telling his landlady of his intention, took the early morning train to Portland thence to
get a ticket over the Northern Pacific to Butte.
Frances Haywood arose the next morning with a feeling of exhilaration over the events of the previous evening. She was proud
that McMinnville had won the contest and then she was proud for another reason. The winner of the contest was a close friend of hers.
She was going about the morning work joyously humming a little tune when her father entered and said somewhat teasingly,
"What's this l hear daughter, Robert Lane running off just after winning such a victory for the college without even waiting for the
congratulations of his fellow students. You did not tell me he was going away." "I did not know that he was going away father,"
said Frances, scarcely able to conceal her surprise. "Where has he gone P" "I met the agent a few minutes ago," answered Mr. Hay-
wood, "a11d he said that Robert had left on the early morning train for Portland, and when he had asked him if he was going to re-
main in Portland any length of time, he answered that he was going to some place in Montana, Butte, he believed." Her heart dropped.
She could not account for this. He had not mentioned such a thing to her. He had not told her what he was going to do after leaving
college and some way she had felt a little embarrassment about asking anything concerning his plans. She could scarcely wait for the
morning mail to arrive, for she felt sure she would receive an explanation of this sudden departure. Sure enough, the postman left a
letter for her addressed in a hand well known to her. '
She took the letter and went with it still unopened to the seat in the orchard which Robert had occupied just a few hours before.
Tremblingly she opened the letter. How brief it was. It merely confirmed the report of the morning, adding that he had decided very
suddenly and apologizing for his hasty departure without having called upon her. He did not even leave his address. lt was certain
that he did not mean that she should write to him. Was this to be the end of it all? How she had looked forward to the time when
she should be a college graduate. How pleasantly everything had passed during commencement week, and now when her cup
seemed to be about full, it had been dashed from her. Had misfortune plotted against her, to cause her to spend her days friend--
less and in sorrowful solitude. Six years ago she had a brother, a noble fellow just entering upon young manhood. How they
played together as children. How they had worked and planned together as school-fellows. How proud she was of him. She
had looked upon him as the embodiment of all that was noble and manly. Alas! When everything seemed the fairest, when
the desire and need of a companion seemed the strongest in her, he had fallen in with some had companions and had run
away. They had heard from him indirectly only once, but that was during the first year after his departure. For five years
they had heard nothing from him. They did not know whether or not he was living. Long had she sorrowed over her lost
brother. Indeed she had never ceased to grieve over him, but the pain had been lessened by her acquaintance and friendship with Robert
Lane. But now he was gone. Her joys always seemed to come to an end abruptly, like a harsh awakening from a pleasant dream
There was no earthly friend to whom she could turn for sympathy or comfort. She had been deserted and a deep sense of loneliness
filled her breast such as only those who have experienced the solitude of an endless desert with nothing to relieve the tediumg just miles
and miles of burning sand which fatigues the eye and strikes dread, awful, unendurable dread into the heart of one lost in its track-
less expanse. She arose from her seat and returned to her duties, but all the buoyancy and hope of youth seemed to have gone from
her and a weight of weariness seemed to be dragging her down. She was another girl.
A year passed. In a narrow street in one of the worst parts of the city of Butte, Montana, a traveler was working his way through
the darkness and beating rain up a steep hill. Only those who have visited this city can have any conception of the utter barrenness
and ruggedness of the site of the city. ln addition to being in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, it is the city of copper mines. Not
a spear of grass or green stem can be found within a radius of nine miles of the city, save one lawn belonging to a millionaire mine
owner, and this is artificially made and kept. And yet this is a city teeming with people. Children are born and grow up to adulthood
without the beauty of the grass and flowers and without the music of the birds.
Up one of the steepest of the hundreds of hills this lone traveler was laboriously moving. The wind was against him and was beat-
ing the rain into his face. Reaching the top he stopped a moment to regain his breath. A little way in front of him he saw a light,
and listening, he heard voices singing. He decided this was the rescue mission, which he remembered was in this part of the city. It
hardly seemed consistent for him to enter a place of this kind after spending the early part of the evening in one of the worst gambling
dens of this wicked city, but to obtain shelter for a time from the blinding storm, he decided to enter. He found his way to the door,
entered and sank into a back seat. A young man had just risen and was beginning to speak. For a time our traveler seemed not to notice
what was going on about him. The relief after his hard struggle with the storm left him almost in a stupor. He had sat there he did
not know how long when he was aroused by-the speaker in the pulpit saying, as it seemed directly to him, "Young man, have you left
your father's house? Have you drifted into sin and wasted your substance in riotous living? Are you feeding on the husks that are lit
only for the swine? If you have done all these things, there is yet hope for you if you will only arise and go unto your father. He
is forgiving. He will receive you in tenderness and love. He will meet you with a new robe, will place a ring upon your finger and re-
ceive you with the greatest joy. Young man, rise up in the strength of your former manhood and return to your father." Could it be
that these words were addressed to him individually? As the young speaker continued the story of the prodigal son our listener was
startled into thoughts and remembrances which he had striven to put from himself for years. A picture of his former home arose
before him. Where was his father now? Was he still waiting expectantly for him to return? What a pleasant home that was which
he had left! How ashamed his old father would be did he know to what degradation his son had fallen! How pleasant it had been be-
fore he had known the stinging pain of sin! If he could rest only one 'night beneath his fa.ther's roof, free from tormenting remorse,
which followed him!
The young orator in the pulpit was pleading with all the power of reason and eloquence combined that all who had drifted from
the right should accept the gift of salvation through jesus Christ. I-le ceased speaking and sat down to the piano and sang:
"Have you drifted from the home-land, brother?
From the love and the joy of home, ' u
There is one who will give you comfort
If you will but hear your Lord's call, come."
"Arise my brother, arise,
Return to the joy of home.
Let Jesus, your dear elder brother,
Lead you back to your father and home."
He sang on through the hymn, then arose and gave the invitation to those who would make a public confession. Frank Haywood
ffor the listener in the back part of the room was none other than the lost brother of Frances Haywood,of McMinnville, Oregon,l
arose and walked to the front of the room. He turned about and faced the audience and spoke in a distinct yet broken voice: "Friends,
I am doubly a prodigal son. I have drifted away from both my earthly and heavenly fathers. I have wasted my substance and six years
of my life in wicked and riotous living, but tonight I want to return. I want to rededicate my life to God's service and by his help I
will return at once to my parents and sister, whom I dare to believe are still hoping for my return." "You're right they are waiting. I
will go with you to them," said the young man on the platform, rushing up and grasping his hand. "I take it by the color and expres-
sion of vour eves that you are none other than the lost brother of Frances Haywood." "I am, but do you know my sister? She lives far
from here, at'McMinnville, Oregon, and has never been beyond the borders of her own state."
After service was dismissed the young orator, whom we recognize as Robert Lane, led Haywood to a side room and when they were
seated told him the story of his acquaintance with Frances Haywood. He told him how he himself had almost deserted herg how he
had come to Butte, the year before, had secured a position as teacher of a small school and had spent the winter at this work. He had
drifted into the mission himself one evening and, the pianist being absent and a volunteer being called for, he had offered his services.
Because of his ability as a leader of music he had been asked to retain the position. From time to time he had been called upon to
take part in the service which his growing interest made him only too willing to do. It was only one step more to put him in entire
charge of the work, for leaders were few and new fields were opening. The interest in the work had grown tremendously under his
zealous leadership and the name of Robert Lane as a pulpit orator was known and revered throughout the city. He had found a way to
use his power of oratory that was not merely mechanical. His soul was fairly burning with the desire to assist in raising fallen hu-
manity. The attention of the mission board had been called to him through his work, and through them the attention of the government
oiiicials, and now they had asked him to take a place on the Island of Hawaii to help in governmental, educational, and religious
organization and development. He was to become a religious statesman. Religious statesmanship was to be his calling.
Faith in God which made him willing to wait had solved the problem of his vocation for him. Had this year of waiting been in
vain! Had it not been the means which had caused him to find himself and besides to find the lost brother of her whom he loved?
Surely God works in wonderful ways. And now he must hasten to her. He must take back the one for whom she was sorrowfully
waiting. She must wait no longer. He must go to her.

Another commencement had come and gone at old McMinnville. But the week of festivities, joy and excitement had awakened no
thrill of pleasure in the heart of Frances Haywood. It was more like the passage of a pall soon after the death and burial of a loved
one. Today it was Sunday. All nature seemed to be in her most buoyant mood. The orchard was literally a mass of blossoms among
which bees and insects were lazily droning. There had been an all day meeting at the old church. A convention was being held for the
ordination of a young man into the ministry. The windows of the church were thrown wide open and the audience was dividing its atten-
tion between the address given on the inside and the joy and quiet of nature on the outside. Frances had sat almost listlessly through
the entire service. Her father arose at the end of the address and asked her to sing. She stepped to the piano and playing her own
accompaniment sang that old hymn of Dr. Geistweit's "In the Springtime," in a voice which almost trembled with deep feeling:
"Oh the sweetness of life's hours in the springtime,
Oh the beauty of the flowers in the springtime,
liut the sky may be o'er cast
And the sweetness may not last, so we want the Savior with us, i
In the springtime.
Lord, we dare not walk alone in the springtimeg
All 1ife's harvest must be sown, in the springtimeg
And the path that seemed so fair, may lead on to weary care,
So we want the Savior with us
In the springtime.
Lord accept the praise we bring, in the springtime,
Bless the happy songs we sing, inithe springtime,
Guide us lest our feet should stray, walk beside us all the way,
For we need thy presence with us
In the springtime."
When she had finished she arose from the piano, stepped through a side door out into the orchard where she sought out the old
stone seat and throwing herself into it, she hid her face in her arms and her whole frame shook with sobs. She had remained in that
position she did not know how long when some one from behind the seat caught her in his arms and placing his hands over her eyes
said in a gay voice, "Frances, who would you like to see more than anyone else P" With a little cry she said: "Oh my brother!" He
removed his hands from her eyes and brother and sister were in each others' arms. ln a few words he told her how he had been saved
and brought back home through the influence of a young man, who had consented to return and visit him. "Now will you meet the
friend and rescuer of your brother P" And Robert Lane, who had remained unnoticed for the moment, a few feet behind the stone seat

lt had happened as all expected, the races were run in fair time, one record being broken. The field events had gone fairly well.
The last event was the two-mile.
Short, of DePauw, held the intercollegiate record, so the race had bee11 conceded to him as a matter of course. There were fifteen
entries for the two mile. DePauw, besides her crack long distance man Short, had entered james and Harwood, both men to be feared.
Franklin was represented by Gilbert and a stranger to most every one, named Wheeler. Wabash, Earlham and the others each had a
runner apiece in the race. "Hurry up two-miles!" called the clerk of the course.
The spectators had begun to leave the grounds the stand presenting little barren patches, for already the meet was l"ranklin's.
The fellows threw off their robes and were on their marks,-a word,-a pause,-another,-a pause. followed by a shot and they
were off on their long run.
The pace markers started-off at a terrible clip, reeling off a mile and dropped out at the finish of the first mile, Short and
Wheeler came trailing the crowd, absolutely last. But who was this lean, round-shouldered fellow who was taking his pace from the
champion? The "F" men remembered him as a quiet fellow who daily plodded around the track but had as yet shown no encouraging
The race continued until they were on the third quarter of the last mile. Many had dropped out, others were making the desperate
effort to keep in stride, but Short, his teammate Harwood and the lanky Franklin man, Wheeler, still kept their stride and relative
As they passed the finish mark, the fellows, out of school spirit, gave a yell for their man Wheeler, momentarily expecting him to
drop out. Then as nothing of the kind happened, interest began to increase, megaphones and shouts of "Keep it up old man," "Stick to
him," rang out across the oval to the runners. They swung down the straight path on the last quarter with now only Short and Wheeler
in the heart-breaking race. The former passed the judges first, arms swinging like clock-work and his great legs seeming fairly to
eat up the ground as the spikes of his running shoes dug into the cinders. A few feet behind him ran Wheeler, the lines of his pale face
tensly drawn but going evenly and sticking like a bur to his leader. Then the Franklin fellows woke up to the fact that a wonderful
thing was happening, the champion unbeaten for years was being pushed. Regular yells with "Wheeler, Wheeler, Wheeler" on the end
were sent across to their man.
About a hundred yards from the finish the crowd was prevented from seeing the runners by the back steps. By this time the entire
school was in a frenzy of excitement. Their man was closing up. The two passed from view behind the stand, neck and neck. Only a
hundred yards to go, it was anybody's race! As the runners burst into view a mighty yell went up from the several hundred students.
The unknown Wheeler was in the lead by ten yards, and sprinting with desperate strides towards the tape. Men rushed along the
side shouting encouragement, the trainer threw water on him. He gamely stumbled on. With head down and lips parted he had only
a few yards to go. Could he do it? 'I' wenty-fifteen--ten--only five more, and the greatest race of the day would be won. Three more

In chapel that night, after a splendid cheer had been given him, the man who ran the greatest race of the day was awarded a small
blue jersey with a gold "F" on it. Wheeler had made his team. JULIAN S. BRYAN, '09,

BASKET ISS! llllsllm
Basketball has heen one of the leading sports this year. The new gymnasium was the principal reason, as heretofore no adequate
playing space was at the disposal of Franklin haskethall aspirants.
Owing to the unseasoned condition of the haskethall material, a series of class games was played to enahle Coach Goheen to get his
eye on the players. A trophy cup was purchased hy the classes, with the stipulation that it should hecome the permanent possessioniof the
class which should win it three years in succession. The seniors produced the championship team this year, and the following names were en-
graved on the cup: L. W. Beam, captain, Thompson. Chadwick, W. C. Beam, Spaulding and Selleek.
During the last week of the Christmas vacation a team picked from the class quintets took an experience-getting trip through thc
northern half of the state. Five games were played upon consecutive nights at Rochester, Wahash, Marion, Hartford Citv and Rens-
selaer. Une of the surprises of the trip was the defeat administered to the Wahash Athletic Association the second nighit out. The
l' l l tl stuad returned to Franklin to await the opening of the regular season much hardened and I-ms-
aims of the trip were rea izec, ant ie fl f . L x t I

'l'hen came a period of hard-fought battles and close scores, but inability to make enough points. Before the largest crowd of the
season llellauw came over and defeated us in a stubborn contest. 'l'he score at the end of the first half stood 10 to 7 in favor of Frank-
lin, but about the middle of the second half the score was tied and in the last few minutes the visitors won out 23 to 17.
At 'Ferre Haute, January 19 and 20 we received two more "lemons" In the first contest with the State Normal, the team was de-
cidedly 'fotf-color" and lost 32 to 26, through all-round poor playing. 'l'he game with Rose Polytechnic the following night was a fast
exhibition, and the strong Technical team was outplayed, but won on foul goals, 27 to 24.
'l'he next four games were won with ease. Madison Commercial Club 3, Franklin 80g Winona 'l'ech 18, Franklin 355 Danville
Normal 12, Franklin 45, were three easy victories. 'l'hen Hanover came for an afternoon game February 18, and returned with the
small end of a 34 to 21 score. Hanover had a much larger and heavier team than Franklin, and played good basketball. H
'I'he heavy llutler team broke the winning streak February 16 in a hard-fought
game, Cwhich was tied at the end of the first halfj by a score of 15 to 10. All vis- l
ible signs of luck were absent in basket-shooting, and the low score shows the good
guarding of both teams.
February 18 the strong Miami University five defeated us 23 to 19. In the last
half Franklin played circles around the Buckeyes, but could not overcome the lead
obtained in the opening session.
February 22 Franklin again jumped into the game and defeated the strong Bat-
tery "A" team, of Indianapolis. Franklin led 10 to 4 in the first half, then the gun-A
pushers tied the score, which compelled five minutes overtime playing to decide the
game. Franklin piled up ll to the l3attery's 3, and won 25 to 16. 'l'his last five
minutes was the fastest pace ever set by our team, and the whole bunch played with
snap, precision and accuracy.
On February 25 the Columbus Marions played the varsity the first half and the
scrubs the second, and were sent home defeated by a score of 76 to 18.
On March 2 the last game on the home floor resulted in a 20 to 12 victory over
Moores Hill in a slow game. '
ln closing the season the team played as though exceedingly stale, and los,,t four
games. At Oxford Miami beat us on March 3. At Moores Hill, we lost by the same

'The season ended at Greencastle March 10, and DePauw again dished out defeat to us by a score of 29 to 15, The Franklin co-eds
accompanied the team, and won from the DePauw girls 25 to 7.
With the exception of the unlucky finish, the team made an exceptionally good record for inexperienced men, and as it was the show-
ing was very good. Our men, compared with the players on other college and independent teams, were as a rule smaller and of slighter
build. But the team's work was full of fight all through.
The Franklin summarized the individual work as follows: "lt is impossible to pick any individual stars, as every man played the
game all the time. A short summary of their deeds: Captain Chadwick threw during the entire college sea-
son 56 field goals and 4-5 fouls, Brown. 75 field and 41 foulsg Beam 44 field goals and 2 fouls, Gaston 48
field goals and I foul 3 Spaulding, I7 field goals, Ritchey, 155 Jones, l3, Constable, 10, Waggener, 33 and T
Branigin 2. Two points were awarded, making a grand total of 657 points, against 439 scored by oppo-
nents. The prospects for next season are bright. Chadwick, Beam, and Spaulding will be lost by gradua-
tion, but with Brown, Ritchey, jones and Gaston as a nucleus, we expect next year to put ont a team that will
give them all a race for the secondary championship."
On the different all-state teams, picked by lndianapolis experts, Brown was always mentioned as a
forward of merit, and he was the choice for forward on the Indiana Sportsman's all-state second team.
Ritchey was soon after the close of the season elected captain by the UF" men. Those receiving the let-
ter were Chadwick, Beam, Brown, Spaulding, Gaston, Ritchey and Jones. '
The girls have also participated in basketball to a large extent and with gratifying results. ln the inter-
class series the freshmen won the championship. The girls played the "curtain-raiser" to many of the var-
sity games, and were no small attraction in drawing crowds.
Frequent "revivals" were held in chapel to arouse spirit for the games during basketball season, in
which many enthusiastic speeches were made by the faculty and students. It is believed, however, that these
act as a "hoodoog" for nearly always a chapel rally was followed by defeat. However, with the good start ' -
obtained this season the spirit next year will be so good that no artihcial stimulants will be required. '

It has been many years since Franklin has done any thing in track or field events. However, since Coach
Goheen's coming more interest in athletics has been aroused, and for the first time in several years a track team
has been organized. '
In the winter term practice was carried on indoors. A twenty-four lap track was laid off inside the gym,
and the distance men, who during the fall term were doing cross-country running, began indoor work. High
jumping, pole-vaulting, shot-putting and running were developed during the winter months, and on the twen-
tieth of March a team of fifteen men competed with the Indianapolis Y. M. C. A. in a dual meet. Although
the meeting was not at first glance materially successful, as we were defeated by a large score, it was a very
good showing considering the, relative strength of the two organizations.
Franklin scored first and second on the twenty-yard dash, Bryan and Captain Babcock taking the places 3
second in the 880, Braniging second in the-mile, Jewettg andlsecond in the pole vault, Constable. Yount also
would have won second in the three-mile but for a misunderstanding of the rules.
Franklin will compete in the lndiana College Athletic meet at Richmond on the l5th of May, and will
also enter individuals in the championship meet to be held at the Coliseum in Indianapolis on April 23. Future
prospects are bright. The new term has brought valuable material, and with this year's experience we hope to
send out a winning team.

We have here a section of the datebook of one of the fair coeds for two terms. 129 dates with thc same man in six months looks a
little bit like a case.
'HMI-: NAME OCCASION

September G. W McCain . Webster spread
September G. W McCain . Webster literary

Between October 3 and 20 the owner of the date-book had 17 more dates, all with G. W. McCain. On the 21st thcrc was no date-
presumably G. W. was sick. But he recovered next day, and there were 9 more dates in October.
On November 7 we find this significant entry-"G. W. McCain-walking fGreek'sl." Whether this was the first time, the last
time or the only time that Mr. McCain took her to the Greek's is not stated, but clearly something happened to make the occasion one
to be remembered. Now the days were beginning to get too cold for walking. so on November 17 we find that G. W. McCain came to
spend the evening. November 21 states as follows: "G, W. McCain-walking Cmissed connectionjf' What was wrong? On November
25 we see the name of G. W. McCain "car to go home for Thanksgiving," and on November 30 G. W. Mc Cain, "at car returning
from 'l'ha.nksgiving." All told there were only 18 dates in November, which shows clearly that there must have been one or two dis-
December opened with Bishop Vincent at Grace M. E. Church, and there are 11 dates labeled "church-Bishop Vincent." G. W.
was clearly warming up to the work. for on December 6 he had threedates--morning, afternoon, and night. A total of 18 dates is
recorded in the 18 days of school in December.
The lady of the book did not keep a record of her correspondence during the holidays, but we may feel sure that it was quite
voluminous. School begins again on january 5, and we find the following under that date: "G, W. McCain-called to study history."
Why this obvious falsehood? After 10 more dates of the ordinary kind, we find that G. W. McCain killed two birds with one stone-
"Jan, 19-basketball, and read Merchant of Venice." This was a clear case of preparation for the next date, for on the following day
G. W. McCain took Miss ---- to see both Hamlet and the Merchant of Venice. There are 12 more dates in January.

There seems to have been no church on Saturday night.
After 11 more dates, the 28th of February seems to have been a warm day, for on that day it is written, G W McCain drning
Only 17 dates are given for March, so it is supposed that the young lady's memory must have failed her on ten or twelve occasions
Four times the statement is made that G. W. McCain called to study history, and let us hope that both passed the final exams success
fully. 129 dates in two terms is a pretty good record, and now that the days are warm enough to allow of tuo dates a day and three on
Sunday, we hope that G. W. McCain can bring his total for the year up to 200 before commencement.
Sfnnnet in fllllath.
Math, thou monster of despair, .
The freshmen fear thee, and they dread
The awful undulation of thy tread,
With shakings, and with raising of the hair,
And tortured with an overwhelming scare
Of figures. While before their eyes
Sines and cosines rear their awful forms,
Filling them with quakings and alarms.
These be thy tortures, math,
Inflicted on the weak and strong 3
For each must cross thy path.
The road is tedious, rough, and long,
But with that journey softly o'er
We fear thee not, forevermore.

With fond, and affectionate farewells mixed with all kinds of noises and suit cases, the Glee Club boarded that fast train for
Martinsville. All seemed happy and in for a good time but Smith who sat in the corner with tears running down his cheeks as if he
expected never nisee hlarjory agahr
At last after much bumping, and shaking around we were dumped out at Martinsville. Here Smith began to improve, under the
treatment of that water of theirs, and after writing to Marjory he was able to go to the dining room. Next morning he was up early
and wrote again before train time. The train left early that morning and we were soon at Worthington. This is Hanna's home and
the whole town came out to see the dear boy return. Smith was also kept busy meeting his cousins for he seemed to be related to every
one. That night was a big one for the club, for they all helped burn some of father's coal after the concert. Next day was Sunday
and we all went to church. Here McCracken talked to the young people telling themthat "We young people should get closer together
and form a better union." After church that night several things happened. Clark not being used to such large girls sprained his ankle.
"Whit" got mixed up under the mistletoe, and Thomas went to the grave yard. But returning to the afternoon of that eventful day
we find that the ladies of our company got together with Marshall and Nichols had flown to the next stop, and that Childs and
Smith sported the family rig where they stayed together with the daughter.
The next number on the pragram was Bloomfield. Here we found ourselves surrounded by pretty girls, and so many of them that
we had difficulty in deciding which one. However, three of us fellows decided, and the rest are still debating. But that decision was
a fatal step for Whitcomb for it gave him some kind of trouble with his heart.
The next place at which we stopped was Linton. In this little mining town we visited the interior, and took some lessons in
shoveling coal ffor future use.l Here the girls learned a new stunt, that of eating without washing their hands or faces. The club
made a hit however, the quartette especially, but Smith became dangerous, and was taken home by the preacher for the night. Next
morning Smith's vocabulary having improved, and "Whit" and Childs being well pleased with the plans of the new church which they
had stored away, we left for Sullivan.
Sullivan according to McCracken is a city of pretty girls, and Marshall evidently thinks so, for he also had a date. But the thing of
most importance here was not the fact that our girls and their escorts got lost, but the reception which Miss Drake gave for us. The
house was beautifully decorated in Franklin College colors, and everyone seemed to have the Franklin spirit. Refreshments of orange
sherbet, cake, coffee and mints were served and the favors were small Franklin pennants, made of felt. This was certainly appreciated
by the club, and we worked harder than ever that night for the "College on the hill," even if we were crippled by one tenor being out
Terre Haute will certainly be remembered by every member of the club, for here Miss Miller entertained us with a house party. That
we had a swell place to stay, and a grand time is no mistake, and we all have a warm place in our hearts for the Miller family. How-
ever, Thomasine felt rather blue over the fact that her rich jew could no longer be with us.

Christmas Day found us in Paris, Ill., eating our Xmas dinner at the Paris House. Though away from home still Santa Claus
did not forget us. That night we played in the best opera house we were in on the trip, and though the crowd was not large still we
had a very appreciative audience.
Next morning we left for Marshall, and here we were certainly royally entertained by the people of the town. And in return we
gave the best program of the trip. The house was crowded and the fellows seemed to be inspired for they sang as they never had before.
Next day being Sunday we all went to church for we wanted to help on the hit we had made. Clark and Whitcomb surely did for they
both had dates with the same girl.
Next day after trying several of the Illinois trains we found ourselves in Potomac with "Papa Cox" to meet us. Here again we
appeared before a packed house, but Marshall and Nichols were the only ones who made a hit. fAsk Gerald about his widow.J
' The jump to Kankakee was quite a long one, and we spent much time on the train. But Smith was always able to Weyl away
the time by writing to Marjory. That night it rained, and consequently the size of the crowd was affected.
The following morning we came back to lndiana, and Thomasine watched carefully to see if there was a change in color as there
is on the map. At Goodland we had a better house for the Franklin people had worked hard for us. However the sudden drop of
the mercury caused some to stay at home. H
Burnettsville, Flora and Forrest, the last three of our trip, gave us large and appreciative audiences. ln Burnettsville we found
our old friend Rev. Mr. Uverman, who though sick and unable to be out had done much for us. Flora being lXfIcCain's home town, and a
wide awake little place, we had the largest audience of the tour. But something happened here, one of our tenors shook the bunch.
and flew for home. Whether it was stage fright or home sickness, no one knew, but it cou1dn't have been the latter for he had spent two
days with his mamma and papa in the first part of the trip. However he was gone and the last night went off fine without him.
That last night none of us will ever forget. How Smith thinking himself disappointed in love because he didn't get his daily let-
ters from Marjory made a date. I-l ow we spent the large hours of the night at the Betz home, and the smaller ones at the station, wait-
ing trains. How we stole cobs for our fire, how we flagged the flyers, and how in a few hours we were scattered all over the state.
The spring glee club trip was rather short. The club left Franklin on Wednesday afternoon and arrived in Dupont a few hours
later. The night was certainly March. The rain came down in torrents, but not satisfied with this, a wind sprang up which made it
impossible to carry an umbrella. However, after our chicken dinner we felt much better, and were ready to show the public what we
carried in our suit cases.
Next morning we were on the train for Madison. Here the people met us with open arms, for we were there last year and they
remembered. That afternoon we visited the hills of Kentucky, while Thomas and McCracken took in the "sights" of the distillery,
The concert that night was quite a success, and our program was much improved by the readings of Miss Neva Denny. Uncle Lee
should be proud of his little seven year old niece.
Thursday morning, crowded in a wagonette, we viewed the sights of Hanover, and were much impressed by the scenery there. That
'Xl'Sll4l'l'S HY 'l'lll-1 CHl4l.l-IUE Gu
afternoon we boarded the "Hatty Brown" and explored the Ohio between Madison and Vevay. I will not attempt to describe the
scenery along the Ohio, but it has truly been called, "A Second Hudson," and we are all thankful to Mr. Matson, the kind engineer, who
pointed out the places of interest along the way.
At Vevay we were met by a brass band and taken to our hotel, where Smith and Whitcomb found their long-looked for letters.
After dinner, which Mrs. Smith enjoyed immensely, we were soon ready to go to the opera house. Here we gave the minstrel, and after
our natural color had been restored we went to the wharf to await the "City of Louisville."
About 11 :3O the boat came and we were soon on our way for Cincinnati. After Thomas exhausted his store of questions concerning
the workings of the boat, and Marshall had made a hit with the "rousters," we went to the top deck where we amused ourselves and
the sleeping passengers with college songs.
Next morning we were in "Cincy," and after breakfast we rushed up town for Childs was in a hurry. On the first car available he
sent the bunch to the "Zoo" to get acquainted with the other animals, while on another car, which seemed awfully slow to him. he went to
At 2 o'clock we were again on the train for Aurora. But Childs was the happiest one in the bunch, for Miss Moore was with us.
At Aurora Mrs. Davis met us and showed us to our places. Although exhausted by our exploits of the day we were still able to
make our usual hit by the help of Miss Moore, who favored us with several readings, which were enjoyed and appreciated by both the
audience and the club. After the concert a little business meeting was held, and we broke up. The next morning the hills were re-echoing
with the strains of "Home, Sweet Home." ., j 1 j Dj I '

MV DEAR Fonts:
Well here I am writing to vou again. It seems as though I do nothing but write letters home, and yet you scold me all the time for
not writing more. I think this is the third time, second anyhow, that I have written this term. l am getting to be awful popular down here
at Franklin and it is all through my football playing. I am playing on our team and one of the hardest positions in the line. Three
weeks ago we played DePauw but we were defeated, for they were heavier and more experienced too. Nevertheless we gave them a hard
rub. I played a great game. The fellows on the side lines cheered me time and again. They would give a regular Franklin cheer and
put my name on the end and then they would give three rahs for me, and I tell you it made me feel fine. And Oh! how I did rip up
that line. Why when they came around my side they had no show at all. Several told me afterwards that I played a better game than
any other man on the field, and I believe I did. I lost 58.00 of the last money you sent nie, right out of my pocket too, so wish you would
send me another check pretty soon. Make 'it just a little more than the last, in case I lose some of it. With lots of love to all, I am

A certain man had two sons, and the name of the elder was Malachi, and the name of the younger was Reuben. And the younger
of them said unto his father: Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to meg and he divided unto them his living. Now the
name of the city wherein they dwelt was called Podunkg and behold, it came to pass that Malachi said in his heart, Podunk is good
enough for meg and he married a damsel of Podunk, and begat sons and daughters, and he dwelleth in that country even unto this day.
But the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and he came to the city which is called Frank-
lin. And the maidens of that city were very fair, and Reuben took counsel with himself, saying, Behold. l shall even sojourn a little
in this city. And there was in that city a certain prophet whose name was Bryan, and his words were words of wisdom, and he con-
ducted a college in that place, even by the going-up of Monroe Street. And Reuben said, Lo, l will sit at the feet of this prophet,
and apply my heart unto wisdom. And it was about the fall of the year.
And Reuben went in before the face of Dr. Wallace, the keeper of the treasure, and gave unto him silver and gold. And Kent
the lievite gave unto Reuben a scroll, and said. Go now, and get thyself matriculated, and he arose and went forth.
And as he was standing there perplexed, certain youths stood before him, and they said, tl stranger, we are of the great and
mighty brotherhood of Alfalfa Si, and we see that thou art a stranger in this land, wherefore go to now, and let us matriculate thee.
And he said, Yea, verily. And they took him before the faces of certain profs, and spake many and divers falsehoods. And then
they came unto Bryan the prophet, and Reuben fell on his face and said, 0 Doc, live forever. And Bryan the prophet answered and
said, Arise, my son 3 peace be with thee. And Reuben said, From a far country am l come, 0 Doc, to learn of thee words of wisdom.
And Bryan the prophet said, lt is well, my song yet first go thou to the other profs for three years. And Reuben departed out of his
And those youths which were with Reuben took him, and found him food and lodging, and Reuben said, 'l'ell me, I pray you, who
is that damsel, which sitteth at the feet of Bryan the prophet, and writeth his words in ascroll? And it was told unto him saying, She
is called Van Wye by name, and great is her wisdom withal, surpassing the wisdom of all the sons of meng and when Bryan the
prophet is gone unto a far country. then doth she run this college. And Reuben questioned them, saying, Behold now this fat man,
the hairs of whose head do stand on end, and he weareth no collar, but is clad even in a blue shirt, who is he? And they said, l.o,
he is a great man among this people, even the president of the athletic board of control. And the young man said, Who now is this
man with the red head? And they answered and said unto him, That is Everett the son of Spaulding, and there is none like unto him
at getting the shekelsg and he hath among this people a great following, which vote even as he commandeth them. And he saith unto
them, Who is this Nazarite, upon whose head there have never come shears? And they told him saying, Behold, that is McCracken
the sweet singer, and if his hair be cut, then doth his beauty pass from him.

And all these things and many others they told unto him, so that the young man lifted up his voice and cried aloud, saying,
Great is the tribe of Alfalfa Si. Yet it came to pass that when they had gone from him, there came unto him divers of the race of
'l'appa Keg, saying, Behold, these Alfalfa Sis are children of Belial, and the tribe of Tappa Keg is the only tribe. And the young
man Reuben was sore perplexed. And it came to pass before the going down of the sun that certain of the children of Daniel Webster
came unto him saying, As to these things that have been told thee, behold, all is vanity, and the sons of Webster alone are blessed. And
Reuben said in his haste, All men are liars.
Yet it came to pass upon the second night, that Reuben was bidden of the Alfalfa Sis unto a feast: and there rose up and spake cer-
tain elders of the city which were alumni, and the burden of their speech was, Great is the tribe of Alfalfa Si. And they ate and drank and
were merry, even unto the morning watch. And certain of the young men drew near unto Reuben. and entreated him earnestly, saying,
Come thou with us, and we will do thee good: and thou shalt be unto ns a brother, even as one of the same blood. And Reuben said,
Yea, verily. And thereupon they cried aloud and shouted, saying, Br-hold a new pledge for Alfalfa Si.
And it came to pass in those days. that Goheen the Woosterite, the captain of the host, rose up, and all the mighty men of valor
with them, and among them Reuben: and they arose, and girded themselves, and went unto a far country. And when they were come
unto the Philistines which dwell at DePauw, the Philistines rose up against them, and the Philistines prevailed against the Frank-
linites, and they fled before them, and the Philistines fell upon them, andesmote them hip and thigh, and the score was 20 to O, And
they departed and went unto the city of Crawfordsville, and the Franklinites were delivered into the hand of the men of Wabashg and
the men of Wabash discoinfited them, and the score was 62 to 0. And all the people murmured against Goheen the Woosterite, say-
ing, Would that we had stayed in johnson County. And Reuben said, llehold, I shall quit this football team, perchance at sometime I
may play basketball. And he went from among them.
And the young man Reuben was wise and of an understanding heart, and he said, As to this people, eyes have they and see not.
and ears have they and hear not. And he took heed, and saw many things which were hid from the people. And there was in that
place a certain virgin, Rebecca by name, which instructed the young men and maidens in the ways of wisdom. And the people mur-
mered, saying. Heavy upon us is the hand of Rebecca, and grievous are her judgments. But the young man Reuben inquired diligently,
and behold. among all the profs there was none like unto her at giving the square deal. And Reuben marveled in his heart, saying,
Behold now as to the speech of Bryan the prophet, it is full of wisdom and good to hear, why then at divers times doth he get off bum
jokes? And he said, Why now do these servants of the Lord, and chief among them Byron Jones and H. Farr Waggener, seek to
confound Prof. Phillips with their questions? For every day they expound unto him the Scriptures. and argue disputatiouslyg and be-
hold, their wisdom is to his as a grain of mustard seed to an ephah of barley. And he said, Why now doth Pansy Matthews think
that she owneth this college? For behold, it is not so. And Reuben kept all these things, and pondered them in his heart.

And the young man Reuben departed from the counsel which his father had given him, saying, Spend thou not much money, neither
become a sport, as one of the sons of Belial. And Reuben left the strait and narrow path, and wandered in evil places. For behold, he
stayed up late at night, even unto the morning watch, and when they called unto him to arise, he said, Yet a little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to sleep. Wherefore did Reuben drop his first-hour class, saying, Behold, it is too d-d much trouble
And Reuben saw a damsel in that place, and she looked good unto him, and the young man Reuben loved her exceedingly , and Reuben
found favor in her sight, so that they got up a case. And Reuben spent many shekels for love, so that his gold withered away as the
grass. And it came to pass, that when the most part of his cash was gone, she straightway cast him out, and Reuben said, Let the day
perish wherein I was born. 'l'hen did Reuben drink strong drink to forget his sorrows, fetching it even from Edinburg, and he began
to be drunken. '
And when he had wasted his substance with riotous living, and had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land, and the price
of board was raised, and Reuben began to be in want. And he went and joined himself unto a citizen of that country, and tired a fur-
nace for his room rent, until he also was Bred. And he would fain have filled his belly with the hash that the dorm girls did eat, and no
man gave unto him. And when he came to himself, he said, Behold, how many hired servants of my father have bread and to spare, while
I perish with hunger. Yet must they labor for all they possess, whereas labor is to me a thing unpleasant. And Reuben took counsel
with himself, saying, How then can I live without work? And he said, Behold, I will even become a ministerial student.
And he came unto Bryan the prophet, and fell down before him, and prostrated himself, saying, O Doc, live forever. And Bryan
the prophet answered and said, Peace be with thee. my son, sit thou at my right hand, and tell me all that is in thine heart. And
Reuben said, O Doc, I have repented me of my sins, and l would walk even in the way of life, and behold, I feel called to preach the
gospel to this generation of vipers. And Bryan said, O young man, it is well. And Reuben became godly for a time, and walked straight
ly, and no man could find fault with him. And he was given a license to preach, and he went unto Bryan the prophet and said, 0 Doc,
I am destitute and have no funds, wherefore I would become a benehciary student. And he became so, and is even unto this day, and on
a certain day all the saints in all the churches lay by a portion of their substance for him and his brethren, and with no work at all Reuben
getteth his tuition, even as the chapel pianist who works thirty minutes a week, and even as the lab assistants who put in six hours a day.
And he toils not, neither does he spin, and he taketh no thought for the.morrow, for behold, his tuition, is paid, and he maketh his other
funds by preaching. Hear now the conclusion of the whole matter: It is better to be a doorkeeper in the ministerial association than to
dwell in the tents of wickedness.

Sept. 22-Well, here I am settled at last. I missed mamma and jack so much this afternoon that when no one was near I sat down and
had a good cry. Dear old diary, you are going to be my only confidante while I am at college, and it is .vo good to be able to confide all
your troubles to somebody that won't tell. I met the most jolly girls at chapel this morning. and really I believe I shall like the place
immensely after l get over my homesick spell. I am going to a supper with the Alpha Clam girls now.
Sept. 23-I saw a fellow at chapel this morning who reminded me of jack. I must write to him tonight, for if the poor boy misses
me as much as I do him he is indeed awfully lonesome. Was at a Pi Phi reception this afternoon. 'l'hey are awfully lovely to new girls
-I had never dreamed that the old students would treat me so nicely, Pansy Matthews is just the dearest thing I ever met. I wonder
why that fat Mr. Hall hangs around her so much. It won't do him any good, for she says she is looking for a man with money.
Sept. 24-Sat up very late last night writing to jack, and had to get up at 3:30 to study. I feel pretty much used up. Went to
a Y. W. C. A. reception at Prof. I-Iall's home and met the nicest people l ever saw. Mayme told me the dandiest tradelast from Prof.
Hall's son who attends Chicago University. Dear old diary, I'll tell you and nobody else. He said-now just listen to this-that he
thought I was good-looking, and that I could put my shoes in his trunk any time I wanted to. But that's just my luck. I-Ie goes away
soon, so he won't do me any good. -
Sept. 25-Went to a reception last night with a Mr. Frank Parrott, of Indianapolis. He is an awfully nice fellow, and he is
going to call tomorrow night. Got a letter from jack this morning. I just wonder how this thing is going to end anyway. I should
like to be able to look about four years, into the future. Will I be married? Will l still be in school? I hope I'll never be in the
same fix as Georgia Lewis. She says she's not the kind that gets married, and I guess she's right from all I've seen of her.
Sept. 30-Had a great time tonight. May Van Wye found a chicken on the street and gave it to Mrs. Bergen, and then decided
that she wanted to give a spread herself. So she and Goldie and Mr. Clarence Hanna and Frank McCracken told Mrs. Bergen that
McCracken was the owner of the chicken. They took it to Ott's and cooked it, and then sent for Frank Parrott and me to help eat
it. It was so late when we returned that we all put up a ladder at Georgia's window and got in that way.
Oct. 4--Frank Parrott has been here three times this week, and the girls say Mrs. Smith thinks I don't study enough. Well.
maybe I don't.
Oct. 11-Really, I must write to jack oftener. I meant to last night and then Frank Parrott came over to study history, and I
was too sleepy afterwards. I feel quite puffed up over myself-I got the same grade on my English exam that Mr. john Nichols did.
and they all say he's such a good student.

Uct. 20-Dear old diary, how I have neglected you. Mamma has been here today, and I was so glad to see her that I sat down and
cried when she went away. The funniest thing happened the other night, Frank Parrott and I had been out walking, and when we
came in we looked for our usual seat under the stairs. But what do you think-we slipped up quietly so as not to disturb Mrs. Smith.
and there was Mr. Chadwick sitting in our seat kissing that new Alpha Gam pledge from Indianapolis-what is her name anyway?
And they say she is engaged to a man at Butler College, and he's just furious because she lets Mr. Chadwick come around so much.
That's no way for a girl to treat a boy she is engaged to. I sometimes wonder if I think of jack as often as I should.
Nov. 2-Frank and I had the dandiest trip to Brown Uounty yesterday. It was terribly cold coming back, but we didn't mind that
very much. He says he is coming down to see me next summer. Uh, I had the awfullest scare today! Prof. Thompson called on me
for a problem that I didn't have, and when I couldn't give it she talked to me like nobody else ever dared to. And then she called on
Mr. More and he didn't have it either, so she told him he ought to quit playing football and taking walks with his girl, and put in
more time on his studies. I wonder if I am slighting my lessons any?
Nov. I2-I wonder if Louise Carter really likes Warren I-lall, or if she goes with him to get a stand-in with the faculty. Punk
Whitcomb seems to like her pretty well, but they say he can't go with any of the girls very long.
Nov. 16-0 diary, diary, what will I do? jack caine all the way from Purdue yesterday just to see me, and I was out driving with
Frank. And Jack left me just the sweetest little note you ever saw. It.wasn't a bit like the soft notes that engaged people usually
write-at any rate not like that one from Iirnest Smith to Nlarjorv Weyl that the girls found in the Pi Phi frat room. Oh what
shall I do? '
Nov. I7-Frank was'here this evening, and I was kissed for the first time since jack left home for Purdue last September.
Nov. 18-I wrote to jack this morning and told him just how I felt. It was only a boy-and-girl affair anyway, and he had no
right to expect that it would continue after we left high school anil formed new acquaintances. Frank and I are going to Indian-
apolis to hear Lhammade tomorrow. We are going to take supper at his home. I wonder if his father and mother will like me.
Nov. 30-Well, I am back after the Thanksgiving vacation, and what do you think? What flu you think? jack is married-.lurk
eloped with a girl at Lafayette last week. Men never are true to their promises.
Dec. 17--Dear old diary, I may never write in you again. Fraaksays he wants to know all of my secrets that can be put on paper.
and it would take too much time to write them over again. So goodby-I hate to stop short like this, but Frank is outside, and he does
so hate to be kept waiting.

Kent-"Oh for a mother-in-law." Seems as though he's on
the high road to the goal.
Have you heard Bab's latest joke? It's coming.
"'l'here's one thing about Common Sense-it hain't common."
Some women are born beautiful, others achieve it. Oh Rats I!
Is the story on Unthank true, that during a funeral he was

"The congregation will now pass round the hier." CSee page l89.j

Why I was just a term gettin' it.

Cheer up, honey, ,

And still to us in classes and hall,
The voices of Lyons and Wygant call,
"just don't you get discouraged at all,
Cases aren't got in a day-a day.
The way aint sunny,
But don't you fret,
Cheer up, honey,

And this is all. In this little hook we have tried to picture life
at Franklin, as well as it can be transferred to paper. Almost every-
where we have tried to depict Franklin as it is, though here and there
some few glimpses may be seen of 'Franklin as it ought to be. Whether
the faculty will agree with all of our conclusions we do not know, but
we believe that this hook represents the point of view of the student
body. 'l'o the student we appeal for conhrmation of this. We hope
that the alumnus may have his interest in his alma mater in some
degree quickened by this book. And to the outsider we can say this
much-if you like the picture which we have endeavored to present,
come to Franklin and get the reality. THE EDITORS.
