FRA-N L, NQCOLLEGE 19 Q9 'rr-IE ALMANKKCCIC. Egg A GREATER FRANKLIN By President Dr. C. E. Goode!! The time has come when all institu- i tions of higher learning are projecting great programs of expansion. ln this, Franklin College took the lead, having announced a program of expansion in 1917 which was temporarily held back because of the war. This pause, how- ever, gave time to mature its plans and expand these beyond the original de- sign. In the spring of 1919 a survey of the needs of the college for the next five years was made. This called for raising of a million and a quarter- 3600,000 to be devoted to increasing the endowment, and V S650,000 to be used for buildings and equipment. Al- ready, before the campaign for the above amount has begun, there is a feeling that a Greater Franklin, such as all friends of the College really wish to see established, will call for the raising of at least three millions instead of a million and a quarter.. This will be absolutely necessary if the new slogan of "a thousand students for Franklin College in 192 5" is ever approximately realized. I Dr. A. Vining ' Realizing that the College is just entering upon a period of unparal- leled growth in material equipment, the Board of Directors recently de- cided to secure the advantage of expert advice with regard to its building program. One of the best known firms-of college architects was chosen to lay out building plans covering a considerable period of future growth. The plans as sketched by the college architects experts declare will pro- vide a campus which will be inferior to none anywhere in the country when finally completed. The promotion of these plans will furnish abun- dant use for the large sums which the Loyalty Fund might hereafter help to provide. In putting on the drive for the Greater Franklin, Dr. A. J. Vining has been employed as its capable promoter. 149 FRANK-LINTCULLEGE A 55 17 3 ze .,.1-44" 4' , . ' -7 if aj? bf' 4' ,I 1 A' A 2' ' f A4 f 4 V W.-1... 1... .

Whether the regard . for books is because of the subject r matter, paper, printing or the bind- ing, it matters not, but because of this love or passion for collecting and preserving books and even whole libraries have been saved to the World. , Franklin College Library possesses some rare and curious books because some one in the past has had a pas- sion for books. The library con- tains many volumes that are over a hundred years old, but that does not signify that they are rare. To really - be rare, a book must have some merit, it may be prized as a speci- men of printing, the illustrator's work may be the reason, the expen- sive binding, or the kind of paper used. Books may be absolutely rare, or only-relatively so. Mere age does not make a book rare. The Mentz Psalter, 1457', is the oldest book with date. The Mazarin Bible was printed about 1455. Per- haps the most valuable American , printed book is "The Lawg of the Frances M. Dean, A.M.-A.B.

The Dramatic Club gave a most interesting perform- ance, while Mary B., Opal, Florence, Mutt and Dave were facing the footllights. Webster contin- ued growing with such excellent material as Ralph Thurston Lavina Schlink , er, Joseph McClure, Evelyn, Bertha, Opal, Maud and Inez. The Scientific Association made itself felt largely through th h ' I ' e researc, es made by Clinton W. In real dress suits, Royce and Charles Farmer appeared on the Men's Glee Club programs, while Evelyn, Inez, Agnes and Elsie Ensley toned down the harsher voices in the Glee Club for Girls The Student Council was guided alon st h , V . g ony pat s by Mutt and Leslie Carson, while Inez did what she could to still the canttinj raids in the dorm Royce made l'ttl ' ' a 1 e more noise in the college band while Mutt's sister, Marian, Ped and Yandell struggled along with the Franklin. Evelyn was busy as usual with the new Volunteers A few memb f . ers o the Tenth Legion nursed flu patients and rolled bandages and knitted sweaters here, while the follow- ing-as given by the reliable Nack Staff-were in service for Uncle Sam: Bruce, Infantry France, ug L., Aviation, France, Foxey, Marines, F loridag I-Iallie, Base Hospital, France, and Ped, Avia- tion, Texas. ' voL. FOUR-Medieval, 1918-19 qconfinuedp In football, Mutt, Yandell and Charles were the usual leaders while the basketball t , eam was kept to its usual strength by Hugh and Potato. Base ball was stronger than for years, with the tireless fighting of Pruitt, Mutt and that peppery Irish Potato. The star runners for the year were Mutt, Yand ll d R ' ' ' ' e an ed. The champs in Girls Basket Ball were these' representing the Tenth Le- gion: Opal, Maud, Agnes, Ruth, Edith, Elsie and Esther Coons. Two swimming prizes were hung up in the barracks of the Tenth Legion and were owned by Florence Merrill and Betty Branham. ' The Y. W. Cabinet worked wonders for the student body with Ruth, Helen, Inez and Agnes as hard workers. The tin cans were guarded by the following sober and law-abiding persons: Helen, Elsie, Ruth, Opal and Bertha. The Franklin had continued to grow and now boasted the follow- ing as members of its staff: Florence, Ralph, Opal and the tireless and talented Yandell fthe latter was the most important member of the Press Clubl. Ralph, Bertha, Ruth McDaniel and Inez were faithful members of Webster. Kinnick and Red sang in the Glee Club, while Inez was a val- ued member of the' Octette. Opal, Red, Florence, Mutt, Yandell and Agnes assisted in Dramatic Club activities, putting on several excellent programs. The Tenth Legion served Franklin further through the work of Yandell and Ralph in the "Post War Y," while Inez, Ralph, Evelyn and Joe kept interest at a high pitch in the Volunteer Band. Edith, Ruth, Ralph and Agnes assisted in Scientific Research, while the Language Association was organized and kept active largely through the diligent work of Royce, Marjorie, Evelyn, Bertha and Florence. The Student Council did everything possible for Franklin with Ralph, Ruth, Joe and Agnes, officials. I VOL. FIVE-Modern, 1919-20 The last ruling days of any great man or any great body are usually the most interesting, and so it is with the last ruling days of The Tenth Legion. In the minds of some, we are a doomed body-doomed to oblivion after June 10th, when we pack our war implements and break camp. These people pity and support us. In the minds of others we are almost-dethroned tyrants- tyrants whose reign ends after June 10th, when we surrender the emblems of our authority Ccol- lege Belfry Key and Seats in Chapelj. These people scorn and attack us. In the face of such pity and scorning, we, Franklin's Tenth Legion, go serenely on our way as the mighty ocean steamer plows through wreckage in the sea. When Hallie, our president, called the roll, he found Mary Beard had returned from her ranch in - , Betty Branham from her home in Illinois, Eunice Snearley from Purdue University, and one or two from service under the flag to re-enter the ranks of the Legion. He learned that so far had the fame of the Legion traveled, Mary Huckle- berry had journeyed from Colorado and Emma DeWitt Vories from Kentucky in order that their names might be entered upon the Roll Book of this famous Tenth Legion. Florence was selected as Vice-President and soon became acting president, as the State needed some Tenth Legion ma- terial in the school room. Opal was made Treasurer, but soon surrendered the class funds and bills to Mabel Hanna, Secretary, and took her place in the school room until commencement time. Modern History-the history being made now, can be studied by turning to any organization in this Almanack CBenjamin never spoke a greater truthj, as the Tenth Legion is a vital part of all college activities. The only thing which it asks permission to boast is the lack of class littleness and its only request is that it be looked upon as good and faithful material for Franklin Alumni Activities. . 21 FRA KLIN CGLLEGE ,B 30 Fl . 21 Bruce L Bowen Rossville, Ind.-Football C15 C25 C35 C45 University C355 Y.

THE JUNIOR CLASS CLASS OFFICERS President, Willie Kingsolver Vice-President, Naomi Mullendore Secretary, Norma Merrill Treasurer, Ora Beerbower l Willie Kingsolver . Class President JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY . Three years ago, one hundred and six Freshmen 'crossed the campus and entered the doo f rs o ranklin College. They were assigned the seats farthest from the north side of chapel, where at- tention is paid to quantity, and it was generally supposed that nothing unusual would come from this 'funwashedn crowd. The class election, however, proved that there was pep a-plenty and from that moment, early in the first. year, the class of nineteen twenty-one has been a leading factor in the institution and its doings. 'Athletically speaking, the first year was a tremendous suc- cess. Four Freshmen men received football letters, the class was well represented on the basket ball squad, and four Freshmen tracksters annexed honors for their work on the cinders. The co-ed basket ball and swimming titles went to representatives of the yearlings. . The fall of nineteen eighteen saw this class n t 't , o , qui e as strong in numbers, enter every field' of colle e t' 't ' ' ' g ac 1V1 y. Scholastic contests, athletlcs, Wigs and Queues, Franklin Staff, Press Club, Scientific Association, Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., and other organizations felt the strong influence of the Sophomores. The biggest class scrap in many years was staged between the Sophomores and the Freshmen. Although out-numbered four to one, the Sophsgrode through in good shape. , So the third year finds the class of twenty-one in everything that goes on about the campus, except Faculty meetings. Politicsxhave been added to the long list of activities, and with the com- ing electi 'll l ' ' A on wi p ay a large part ln the life of the student. One of the lasting contributions of the Junior Class is presented in the form of this book, which we know you will thoroughly enjoy. 22629 19 FR N LINCQLLEGEJEQ get ie MANAQ pg Harry Bailey Helen Bailey Frank Beck Harr Baile One of our romisin oun ministers in the An all-around good sport with lots of pep and yards of smile, Y Y'- D 8 Y 8 "B" line is "Jack" Bailey.

In spite of the terrors of "Flu" and political campaign, resulting in the election of Lloyd Cook as Freshmen president. It proved its ability in athletics by winning the class scrap. Pike won a regular berth on the first team in basket ball. The members found time to enter all college activi- tiesg the Dramatic Club, Y. W. C. A., Student Volunteer, Debating Club, Glee Club, Press Club, Franklin Staff, received new recruits from the class of '22. ' This year, under the presidency of Earl Pike, the class has again won its full share of glory., Its early military experience has taught the value of preparedness Already the Annual Staff has been elected with Lloyd Cook as Editor-in-Chief, Mar- garet Mullendore, Associate Editor, and Stanley Schenck, Business Manager.

Athletic Manager, john Graham William M ullendore Class President THE FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY - The year 1919, the month September, brought to Franklin College a veritable treasure. This said treasure- is now known in the annals of history and the hall of fame as the Freshman Class. This body of super-intelligent and heaven-endowed people met on the second of October and elected the officers who were to steer' through the perilous seas of knowledge their craft, 135 strong. Wm. Mullendore as presi- dent and Reuben Merrell, vice-president, took the helm. Mary Miller kept books, while john Graham held the pocketbook. 'And to Roy Bridges we gave the title of Athletic manager. On this same day we received and rejected the ultimatum pre- sented us by the Seniors. The next day some of our nobler and more zealous spirits were introduced to the swimming pool. Then came the plague of the green caps, these were endured and most joyfully put aside. Then there was our athletic career -you all remember that famous night when the'Freshmen girls beat the juniors? Well, they certainly did. Then just one week later they held the Seniors down to a one-point victory. As for the boys' athletic prowess, just look-one of our number, Bobby Records, received an F for football and another for basket ball. Then, also take a glance at "Woody," another Freshman, making good on the basket ball team. Next, just take a peep at the Chorus, the Orchestra, the Franklin, Wigs and Queues, and any other College organization, if -it hasn't any Freshmen in it you'll find that it lacks something just as needful to it as an excuse is to at junior. As for the other phenomenal things that thisclass is destined to accomplish, let the future speak for itself. 19 FRANKLTN-COLLEGE A THE FRESHMEN CLASS ,4... A ! A QW 2 W 4 X K .

'- '5- 1 AFTER THE PURDUE GAME g THE FOOTBALL REVIEW The football season of 1919 was marked by many varying experiences. The record of the season shows three victories, one tie, and three defeats. The team achieved an honor which seldom is given to a college when it succeeded in battling a strong conference team to a 14-14 tie in the opening game. The Purdue game was one which will live in the memory of every loyal Franklinitefor years to come. It was all the more significant in that Illinois was able to defeat Purdue by the score of 14-9 the Saturday following. 1 The next week Franklin piled up almost as large a score on Hanover College as Center had done the week before, winning by a score of 83-O. V On the next Saturday the Old Gold, and Blue squad journeyed to Terre Haute and by the hardest kind of fighting succeeded in defeating the husky Rose Poly-engi- neers by the score of 14-7. The game was a costly one, for in it occurred injuries to Capt. Lowery, jones and "Spud" Campbell, which paved the way for defeats which would not otherwise have come. , The next week brought one of the rarest contests ever witnessed. Nearly the whole student body and many of the town people journeyed to Greencastle for the annual F ranklin-DePauw game. The teams were evenly matched and the game was played in a veritable sea of mud. The whole Franklin team worked like a perfect machine and DePauw was able to make but two first downs on line-plunging in the whole game. Kingsolver' and Strohl did some wonderful end running which brought the ball within shadow of the DePauw goal posts. A block punt by DePauw gave up the only score of the game. , - The last game was a fitting climax to any season, when Franklin triumphed over her old rival, Butler, in every department of the game. Franklin scored two touch- downs during the first period of play and thereafter kept the ball just in front of the Butler goal post or in crossing the Butler line. Five strong football men go out with this year's graduates, Capt. Lowery, Bowen, Ross, Campbell and Pruitt, but a fine nucleus remained in Captain-elect Kingsolver, Strohl, Pike, Records, Wood, Brown- ing, Fornwald, Fields, Underwood, Gilmore, Justus, Cady, Tomlinson.

The I. C. A. L. Championship team that Franklin sent out was the best in the history of Franklin College. This year's five was the first to go through a season meeting only one defeat, which was at the hands of DePauw University. Every man on the team proved to be a star. Captain Campbell was regarded as one of the best fioor guards in the state, and ,Ross was known for his great basket-shoot- ing ability. Kingsolver teamed with Ross at forward, and this pair proved to be the hardest pair of forwards to halt in the state. Captain- elect Woods played his first year on the varsity and proved to be a won- derful back guard. The main cog in the machine, however, was Pike at center position. Pike was 'named on the all-state team. Captain Campbell and Ross are lost by graduation, but with the fine lot of men from the second squad we are looking forward to another championship. 19 FRANKLIN COLLEGE, 64 ' gal THE ALMS!-EXNA QR lag 1 THE BASKET BALL SQUAD ' Al Personnel-Joe Campbell, Robert Records, CCoachj Thurber, Forest Wood, Harry Gilmore, Willie Kingsolver, Gerald Ross, Earl Pike Earl Campbell Harry Hatten. gig F1aAlwriLrlwi CQLLEGTQ Qx 5? ,R ef 541 AFQIW C l 66 , g fi- gag 'rl-Ir: ALMANACIQ gpg THE BASKET BALL ."F'i MEN 1 Individual Writeups for Basket Ball 1920 i Captain Campbell: Floor guard.

When the call for baseball was made, seven letter men appeared on the scene to greet Coach Thurber. In addition to these men, a host of Freshmen candidates came out determined to win berths on the Old Gold and Blue team. P . x Prospects were very bright when the season began-Captain Campbell at short Grinstead at first, Ross at second, Green at third, Kingsolver catching and Bitter, Lowery and Gale in the outfield. , .T he season's work consisted in beating Butler four times and defeating all others except Indiana and State Normal. The sweetest victory to Franklin was the defeat of Purdue by a 7-3 score at Purdue. This was the first time in Franklin College ath- letics that anypof our teams succeeded in defeating -Purdue. Things were about as lively after that in "Old Franklin" as they ever were. Another game that Franklin will always remember is the game with Indiana in which the Conference team was forced to go ten innings for a victory. In this game Franklin established her name as the fastest college team in the state. 9 Lowery and Winstead are the only men lost to the team and they surely will be missed. just the same, we expect to make ourselves known in I.

A committee of Seniors worked diligently all morning erecting the throne for the May Queen, and roping off the green for the dances. A big dinner was served on the campus at noon. - A By 1:30 everything was in readiness and theuproces- sion started from the Dormitory with Esther Berryhill leading, as May Queen, followed by six Senior girls who were her attendants, and then a long line of Co-eds, carry- ing wreaths of flowers and branches. Following the crowning of the Queen were the dances consisting of a Blue-Bird, a Colonial, and the Maypole dance. These were under the supervision of Miss Chard, Director of Physical Education for Co-eds. A fitting climax for the day was the presentation of the Senior Class play, "Hiawatha," given by moonlight on the banks of the stream near the Oyler Place. to FRANKLIN comm 'E gay 19 TI-IEC ALMANACCIC-162387 Q M iss Chard Girls' Physical 'Director CO-ED ATHLETICS Among all college activities the one commanding the greatest interest has been Women's athletics, With Miss Marian Chard as director, three gym- nasium classes have met throughout the year. During the basket ball season great ,interest was shown in this branch, each class organizing a team, The class of 1920, who were champions in '19, again carried off the honors, losing only one game and after that their ranks had been depleted by urgent calls for teachers.

At present three classes are being held and a great amount of interest is being shown. The department of Physical Culture suffered a severe loss in Miss Chard's resignation, which took effect March 30. She is now in Kansas City, Mis- souri. We feel sure that she will be successful, and our best wishes have gone with her. Miss Mildred Scott now has charge of the gym, and the swimming is in charge of Mrs. Will' A.

Its highest hope is to bring to God those men Who come here Without him and to safely keep with God those Who have already found Him. The ideals of Franklin College have no supporter more staunch than the Y. M. C. A. Under the leadership of Howard F. Myers the HY" battled its Way in the face of unfortunate prejudice which the war left upon it. Its fight has been a good fight, its victory Well earned. The "Y" ever aims to be in the forefront of social participation. During the past year it has in various Ways manifested this spirit. Due to the efforts of John Barnett the Weekly meetings have been favored with most excellent music. r The "Night Frolic" in Webster Park, made merry by bonfrres, a big feed, select speeches and the boxing match in which "Shiner" shined, Will not be forgotten. Last, but not least, the HY" has made especially strong efforts to bring as speakers to its meetings men with messages that were practical, instructive and timely. -In this it has been eminently successful. rv .Ls LCA?-LFP Y fifnqwugnsgffi WV,:jkW-M:'Mukhi5 gg g ,j F - g 5-1 4-...,..-,,a....-.f,, ,.. , .

She needs her sympathies broadened and her inner life nourished, by contact with other people and with Christ. This is what the Y. W. C. A. tries to do for every girl in college. By means of the activities carried on through the ten committees, each girl has an opportunity to develop her varied inter- ests and talents. This year we have had three delegates at the Lake Geneva Conference, and one at the National Convention in Cleveland. We have an active associate membership of one hundred and sixteen, with thirty honorary members. We greatly miss the guiding spirit of Mrs. C. H. Hall, who died during the holidays. Mrs. Hall was always a source of help and inspiration in our work. QMFRANIQLIN rifomieengf 88S A I 4' ..... vga- ,g. ,4s-7.

Several new members have been added this year. The purpose of the movement is to enlist students by a declaration of purpose to enter the foreign mission field in case nothing unpreventable interferes, and to enlist the interest of students in the missionary enterprise in general. The movement is World wide, though it started from two people, Robert Wilder and his sister, who were devoted to the cause of spreading the gospel over the entire world. This year was marked by the sending of four delegates from the school to the International Student Volunteer Convention at Des Moines, Iowa, during Christmas vacation. Professor R. C. Roberts, john A. Barnett, Ethel Morris, and Fern Mc- Guire were the delegates sent. Delegates from all over the world were at the convention. Forty different nationalities were represented, the total number of students there being seven thousand. During the month of January the delegates reported the convention at many places where requests were made for such a report. The International Convention is held every four years, and students who are enabled to attendconsider it a great privilege. In order to facilitate the caring for the expense of delegates a fund was started this' year from which delegates may borrow for five years to pay their expenses to the International Convention. The fund goes by the name of the August L. Sundvall Student Volunteer Memorial Fund, in memory of the late August Leo Sundvall. A number of students attended the State Convention held at Earlham during the month of April, receiving there splendid inspiration as well as practical suggestions for carrying on the work of the Band. ,S D lx N IX i ggiig raariaasi QI P i C lg E, - ---A-5 Lf,-1--54--an-.h....,,.-.n -.: f- ,, . . - : , , .

GUNN'S MEETINGS ' Following the custom of a number of years, a series of special meetings was held under the leadership of Dr. John R. Gunn, pastor of the First,Baptist Church, Fort Wayne, Ind. Dr. Gunn began Monday evening, March 15, and he spoke each evening and at the Chapel each morning, closing with the services at the Baptist church, March 21. ' , There was a growing interest on the part of the students in the meetings. Dr. Gunn brought simple, direct messages which were helpful in enabling the students to redefine and reassert their re- ligious convictions. These services but demonstrate anew the need for a season of revival and reconsecration to the service' of God, during the busy life of the college year. "FIND YOURSELFW CONFERENCES Under the auspices of the Student Associations of the College, in co-operation with the State Student Department of the Y. M. C. A., a "Find Yourself" Conference. was held immediately following the special meetings, March 22 and 23. A team composed of prominent church leaders and workers, under the direction of Mr. W. W. Mendenhall, State Student Secretary, led in the conferences. The conferences began March 22 with a stirring address by Dr. F. E. Taylor, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Indianapolis. Fur- ther addresses were made by Mr. Fred Hoke, a prominent Indianap- olis business man, Dr. -W. C. Covert, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, Chicago, Illinois, Miss Gerwick, a student Volunteer Secre- tary, and Mr. Mendenhall. Many of the students availed themselves of the opportunity to attend these meetings and much lasting good was undoubtedly ac- complished. 9 FRANKLIN CGLLKEGE I 90 -1 19 THE ALMANKCS 21 KZZIJ THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT CHORAL SOCIETY Officers of the organization for the past year were: - President, Mrs. Otis LaGrange, Secretary- Treasurer, John A. Barnett, Librarian, Ray Ken- neth Andrewsg Pianist, Inez Owen, and Director, Professor C. W. Johnston. S Prof. C li Hard Johnston The Franklin College Choral Society, organized this year by Professor C. W. Johnston, has maintained a membership of between sixty and seventy-five students and townspeople during the entire year. T ry-outs were held at the beginning of the year for all prospective members with the exception of those belonging to church choirs in town, who were admitted without try-outs. Rehearsals have been held from 7 to 8 o'clock every Tuesday evening, and aside from the concerts given by the Society, the value of the rehearsals alone doubly repaid the members for the small amount of time and money demanded by the organization. It was largely due to the tireless efforts of Professor Johnston, in the face of competition with so many other college organiza- tions, for time in which to rehearse, that the organization lived and achieved splendid success throughout the year. Two concerts were given by the Society in the First Baptist Church this year. The first of these was at Christmas time and the program given was appropriate to the season, consisting of several selections from Handel's "Messiah" and other sacred numbers. The accompanists for the concert were Inez Owen, pianist, and M. J. Voris, organist. Expressions from many who heard the concert were to the effect that it was the best of its kind ever attempted in Franklin. The second concert was given May 25. At this time 'fThe Rose Maiden" was presented by the Choral Society with the assistance of four soloists from Chicago: Margaret Lester, soprano, Ruth Simmons Worthington, alto, Eugene Dressler, tenor, and Lester Hugo Castle, bass. This concert was also a pronounced success, and it closed the season for the chorus with thewish on the part of Franklin people that the organization be continued next year. 45 FRANKLIN COLLEGEEQQ '91 A ,ffm-.. .-..- - - ---v.....-..-H .,..

J THE COLLEGE QUARTET Perhaps the most efficient advertising medium the College has had during the past year has been the Franklin College Male Quar- tet, which has given concerts in almost every part of the state and will continue to perform during the entire summer. The Quartet started out in January with a live program full of real music and fun, and it has never failed to leave a highly favorable impression of Franklin College wherever it has appeared. The men have re- ceived several requests for return engagements, but so far their time has been completely taken with new engagements. The program given by the Quartet consists of both secular and sacred ensemble numbers, solos by john Barnett, solos and read- ings by Kenneth Andrews, and the now famous pedophone stunt introduced by Russell Spear, which has never failed to draw uproari- ous laughter and applause from the audience. The men spent the entire week of spring vacation in Fort Wayne, furnishing music for a series of special meetings 'held there, and giving a concert on Monday, April 6. They have appeared in regu- lar concert at two Terre Haute churches, at Logansport, Bicknell, Lebanon, Seymour, Dunkirk, Elwood, and numerous other places over the state. The Quartet sang at a Brotherhood banquet at the First Baptist Church in Indianapolis. It has also filled a number' of high school commencement engagements. So successful was the season of concert work that the Board of Directors has decided to send the men ou-t for the entire summer as a plan of college publicity.

Beriault, head of the Public Speaking Department, who has coached all the plays. The future of the club will be- due to his personality and untiring executive ability. Arthur J. Beriault , DRAMATIC CLUB Once upon a time long ago, the Webster and Periclesian Literary Societies lived and flourished in Franklin College. For a time there was great enthusiasm among the members of both societies and then there came a day when a portion of this interest waned. Webster evi- dently was not affected by this new feeling but old Peri languished and finally perished under the strain. - The place once occupiedby Peri was not filled immediately by other college organizations. The loss of a companionship based upon like literary interests was felt more keenly than had been anticipated, yet no one cared to attempt to revive an organization which probably would totter feebly for a short time before the final fall. Then too it was felt that old Peri could not satisfy a newly-formed interest. Until 1914 there had! been no organized movement for the furthering of dramatics in Franklin College. Perhaps such a hope had been fostered among a few individuals previous to this time but if so, this idea had never gained expression. With the decease of Peri, the old literary interest of a few students turned to this newer field of dramatics. And then one day Mrs. Verne White Vandiver conceived the idea of a club formed for the development of dramatic art in Franklin College. When a few students learned of Mrs. Vandiver's plan, their enthusiasm knew no bounds and they planned to launch the project at once. A self-appointed committee consisting of Mrs. Vandiver, Josephine Wood, Russel Wilson and George Vandiver began work on the proposition immediately. The suggested plan at once met with approbation and enthusiasm among the few college. students with whom they conferred. The plan was carried to the President for his consideration and after making a thorough in- vestigation of all details of purpose and management, President Hanley gave his consent. And so in 1914 the Franklin College Dramatic Club was established under the name of "Wigs and Queues." The membership was limited to six persons from each of the four national fraternities represented here at that time-Pi Beta Phi, Delta Delta Delta, Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon. At first the candidates for membership in the- club were decided upon by their respective fraternities, recommended for the club's consideration, and voted upon in a regular meeting. Later, however, it was deemed more advisable to stage tryouts for membership subject to hnal decision of Arthur J. Beriault, the club's able adviser. The purpose of the organization was the furthering of interest in dramatics and the de- velopment of dramatic ability and appreciation among its members. At-first, meetings were held once a week in the College building but later it was considered more expedient to hold them ,S op RANKL N co LEG E X tl it-ill? All' AN Q ti g ask.

Third row-Roger Branigin, Mar- garet Mullendore, Pleasant Huffman, Mary Purviance, Charles Farmer, T reva Norton but twice a month. At these regular meetings, programs planned to advance the purpose 'of the club were given. Sometimes lectures, readings, or perhaps little sketches were presented. These programs were always novel and entertaining. The "Wigs and Queues" proved to be a tremendous success. The unwaning interest and vigorous support of all the members of the club served to make it one of the most popular and profitable of the school organizations. The "Wigs and Queues" made its debut in Franklin by the presentation of 'fWhat Hap- pened to jones." This play is a comedy of the lighter sort and drew enthusiastic applause from the people of Franklin. When f'The Servant in the Housev was given, the following year respect for the evident standard and serious purpose of the club was universal. A play of the highest type and presented in a splendid manner, it won over the few who had withheld their commendation at the earlier time. ' The war has seen a decline in the strength and interest of many things. Among these was the College Dramatic Club. Enthusiasm waned for a time and the work of the club was seriously hampered. However, with the coming of the readjustment and awakened interest in things of this kind, the f'Wigs and Queuesv are regaining their old position of unquestionable respect and whole-hearted support. May its work be a monument worthy of Franklin College. ,-w l 3 .QNJLUIN CCEGDL iQGfE?f22iZ,? Qjtaai ti .

These men promise nothing, but you may be sure that you will hear from them again.

Franklin's representative at the annual contest of the organization is chosen at a preliminary contest held under the direction of a committee of the faculty. The winner of the contest is awarded a scholarship covering the cost of tuition for a semester. Among the late prizes offered for the first time this year is one known as the Chicago Alumni Prize, presented by Franklin College Alumni of Chicago. This prize is in the amount of 350.00, is given for the winner of the Preliminary Oratorical Contestf Since the prize was announced too late to be presented this year it will be presented to the winner of the Preliminary Contest next year. Will B. Nelp, '17, who was engaged in the air service in 'France during the recent war, has so great an interest in Franklin athletics that he offered a prize of ten dollars each year for the next ten years to the senior athlete who holds the high- est scholarship average for his four years in college. The first year C1918J there was no prize offered owing to the lateness at which the 'offer was received, but the prize was won last year by Raymond Moeller, star backguard on the basketball quintet. The conditions governing the contest are: 1. The man for womanj shall have won one or more varsity letters in a major sport. E ' 2. He shall have spent three or more years at Franklin. 3. His grades shall average higher than any other eligible student. A co-ed won the annual Baldwin prize last spring. Miss Cecile Hurt gave the reading, "The Soul of a Violin," at the contest held in Stott Hall during commence- ment week. Second place was awarded to Miss Louise Constable, who read "Old Hickory." The prizes were awarded at commencement exercises. Hon., Daniel P. Baldwin donated a sum of money some years ago for the purpose of promoting inter- ests forensic in Franklin College, which donation makes possible the prize contest. The Gonsalves prize of 325.00, presented by Mrs. A. E. Gonsalves, is awarded the winner in the essay contest held each year. This is another of our re- cently announced prizes and will be awarded for the first time next year. In order to encourage and maintain interest in college and inter-collegiate de- bating, two prizes of- 375.00 each have been donated by Mr. Elmer Stevenson of Franklin, Indiana, and Mr. jay C. Smith of Seymour, Indiana. The Franklin Star offers a prize of 320.00 to the winning team in a debate to be participated in by representatives of the Webster Literary Society and the De- bating Club. A prize of 310.00 was offered in 1918-1919 for thewinner in this con- test, but this year the amount was increased to 320.00.

Smith HCOMMONERSH LITERARY SOCIETY For several years the independent men and Women of the college have felt the need of some kind of a democratic organization by which they could be banded together for social and literary purposes, and by which they could be recognized as a real part of the student body. Approximately one-third of the student body was outside any social or literary organization and so had no opportunity to enjoy that side, of college life. A In response to this need, "Commoners" was organized early in the year. The first meeting for election of officers and the adoption of a constitution was held in Periclesian Hall on October 27, 1919. Since that time they have met regularly every two weeks for a combined business, literary and social program. The motto of the organization is: 'fIn necessariis unitos, in dubiis, libertasf' Professor John E. Smith, as Faculty Advisor, has given very valuable and much appreciated help to "Commoners.'l t ra n ts cran e te 21 102 P'-4.

It was founded in 1852. A change was effected in the form of the organi- zation, however, in 1877, when it was organized according to the present plan., Three phases of college life are particularly emphasized in the activities of the organization: the business, literary and social, and the work of the society is planned accordingly. Business meetings are held at three-thirty on Friday afternoons, these meetings affording splendid opportunity for the practice of parliamentary law. Lit- erary programs are given on Friday evenings, followed by a social hour in which group games are played. Literary program consists of literary and musical numbers, debates, impromptu speeches, papers and the criticfs report. One feature of this yearfs activities was the dramatization of a first class comedy, "A Scrap of Paper," at the Franklin Opera House on April 21. The play was coached by Professor A. J. Beriault. Webster is old enough to have 'its traditions. The Christmas and I-Iallowe'en parties are annual affairs which have been held for several years. This year Hallo- we'en was celebrated by a drive to the country home of two Webster alumni, Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Hamilton, where an extremely pleasant frolic was held. Besides these annual parties,,hikes to Webster Park are regular features of the year. Among the Webster alumni are numbered many prominent men and women, statesmen, authors and educators, who are filling useful places in solving the world problems of the present day. e ga K EN ceo ioiegite gay ik A A Q IUIMIANACIR pg I WEBSTER LITERARY SOCIETY ROLL FOR YEAR 1919-1920 CLAUDE ACTON HARRY BAILEY ELVIN BARNET T JOHN BARNETT THEODOSIA BEASLEY HARRY BITTER BERTHA CAFF YN FRED CHAMBERS RAYMOND CONLEY HELEN CONSTABLE CHARLES CORBIN N ELLE DAVIS CURTIS DILS JOHN FORNWALD HUGO GALE MARY GRAHAM HAROLD HARDING WILLIAM KINGSOLVER ROYCE KINNICK MARGARET LEWIS MARY LEWIS JOSEPH MCCLURE NORMA MERRILL INEZ OWEN REVENE RINEHART FRED ROBERTSON EDNA SMITH RICHARD SAMPSON STANLEY SCHENCK CARL SCHLAUDT THEO SHARP DONNA SMOOTNP STANLEY STROHL FERN TEAGARDIN RALPH THURSTON CHARLOTTE TROUT RALPH UNDERWOOD ARNOLD YAUGHT MARC WAGGONER ELLSWORTH YARIAN RUTH MCDANIEL RAY ANDREWS KENNETH TOMLINSON ALICE ROBERTS FLORENCE ROLF C'DALE CRABBS SABRA CATHER EERN MCGUIRE IMOGENE STORMS AUDREY COOPER MATA HAUSER ADELE GWINN AGNES BOWLES UNA HOUK RUTH BECK RITA ROSS GLADYS HAZELWOOD EDITH WILSON MRS.

With a nucleus of the members of the Franklin staff it was organized last fall, boast- ing then a membership of 'six women who were specially interested in journalistic activities. ' Q The time for the regular meetings of the organization has been Tuesday eve- ning every two weeks, alternating with the college movie. The organization has had more or less of a struggle for, existence on account of the fact that its members are considerably involved in numerous other college activities, but it is hoped that meet- ings Will be held more regularly next year. The Women's organization sent Marian Ross as a representative to the meeting of the State Press Association at Purdue this spring. Meetings have been held several times with the Men's Press Club. Especially memorable were those held at the homes of Helen Bailey, Roscoe Freeman, and the one held at the home of Eugene C. Pulliam, editor of the Franklin Star, who in addi- tion to opening his home to the clubs, furnished the program himself, giving many helpful suggestions along the line of practical newspaper writing. Another meeting was addressed by Roscoe Gilmore Stott, who spoke on the possibilities of magazine writing, letting the journalists into some of the tricks of the trade. Charter members of the organization are: Helen Bailey, Norma Merrill, Marian Ross, Margaret Williams, Theodosia Beasley and Fern McGuire. The following new members have been added: Helen Carter and Mildred Parker. 45. K aaamanrwcconna GEAEQJ earfrrae rag , l .

Therefore, they invited from among their friends a goodly,-.number of twenty-four. And as this charming body of young maidenhood was assemblying there was an uproarous amount of fun, the girls forgetting that very near them lay a sister dormaniac slightly ill with the "ilu" But I say unto you, lest ye be misled, that it was Saturday night and the lights were not- outg when, behold! the door opened and there appeared a vision saying, 'tUnto you, O girls! I come to ask silence." Then when the vision had vanished there was a general commotion, but the vision reappeared and said, "Verily, I say unto you, I have heard this snickering. Each of you may go to her room. Go, I say, go to your rooms." And, behold! the vice-president of the house led the goodly procession from Room 309. Finally, the hostess appeared to seek after the vision which had wrought such havoc and she discovered it on its downward flight. Then she said, f'Why hast thou done this thing? Lo, for many months this preparation has been in progress." And the vision answered saying, "Verily, I say unto you that ye shall not have this spread lest ye have it in the parlorsf' But again' it was asked permission to have it on the third floor and permission was granted. H ' Then light broke forth on all faces of the gentle ones and they gathered to- gether far from the ill dormaniac. ' Here another vision appeared with red ribbon, and it said, "Behold, ye have Senior control, why let your imagination work overtime and be dealt with in such a manner. If ye believe in me, do as I tell you and ye shall have a great deal of fun." And the tempter vanished leaving agsupply of red peppers and red ink. And straightway this goodly number signed the constitution with red ink and appeared with red badges, and it is said they cherish these red peppers even unto this day. And they called themselves' by the name of B. T. U., but others knew them as Bolsheviks and I. W. W.'s, and lo! when the vision reappeared on this trouble- some scene of action it said: "Behold, they are the girls who have no respect for law and order in the dormitory." ' But, be ye not deceived by such words, for were there ever more demure creatures than those who appeared with these badges? And it came to pass the very next week that if anyone in the dormitory wished to have a spread they had Better N 015 Talk U p, but had Better Tell Ur iHerb. get ga! I t Eli at THE 1921 ALMANACK With the present financial crisis the cost of pub- lishing a book has increased enormously. At the beginning of the school year, the Class of 1921 decided not to burden the students with an ex- pensive book. Increased cost of printing and en- graving made the publication of a year book seem impossible. However, there was such an insistent demand that an annual be published, that the Class of '21 determined that they would undertake the publica- tion of a book that would be Worthy of Franklin College. The Work was deiinitely undertaken early in February. In the short period of three months' time all the Work was done. Mistakes no doubtmay be found in our Work,'but we beg of you, kind reader, to realize that our efforts to serve "the Old College on the Hill" have been sincere. We Wish to express-our thanks to the Alumni, students and friends of Franklin College Who have made this book possible. We wish further to ex- press our appreciation for the services of the In- dianapolis Engraving and Electrotyping Company, the Printing Arts Company, Indianapolis, and john H. Thompson, the photographer. Especially do we wish to express our gratitude for the co-operation of Emma DeWitt Vories, Elizabeth Overstreet, Alice Thompson and Enid McCaslin, the artists, and the contribution of Mrs. C. E.

Invitations were sent out to all alumni and an effort was made to reach as many former students as possible and to bring them back for the event. The entire affair was a decided success. The .festivities began in the morning at chapel when an extended session was held, during which music was furnished by the college band and stunts were given by the different classes. These stunts were full of pep and originality, but perhaps the one that carried off thehonors was that of the Juniors who impersonated differ- ent members of the faculty. No one in chapel that day will ever forget Roscoe Free- man's appearance in the attire which properly belonged to the dean of women, Pro- fessor Stella W. Morgan, and his clever impersonation of her. It drew the most up- roarious applause and laughter of anything which has happened in the old hall in many years. A picture of Mr. Freeman in the attire he wore for the impersonation appears elsewhere in this book. A number of new traditions were proposed by Professor R. C. Roberts and passed upon by the Student Council during the morning session. Among these was the limiting of the privilege of ringing the college bell in case of athletic victories to the Senior class, providing also that the Seniors will toll the bell in case-of signal defeats, especially at the hands of Butler. Another tradition wasthat of the junior class assuming the custodianship of the rock on the campus near the sundial and handing it down to the coming junior class as a part of the May Day exercises. The afternoon was taken up by the Franklin-Butler game which enabled the first performance in keeping with the new traditions to be that of ringing the bell, not tolling it. . Dinner was served during the evening in Recreation Hall in honor of the alumni. At the dinner, class yells and songs, musical numbers, and speeches by prominent alumni were given. ' Students and alumni alike were convinced that the day fulfilled its purpose- that of creating a more effective and a closer association between students and alumni of the college. H THE COLLEGE DINNER . The Eighty-Sixth Annual Founders' Day Dinner was given in Recreation Hall Friday evening, March 19. The attendance of students was larger than usual and a splendid spirit of boosting for Franklin marked the entire evening's festivities. A program was given consisting of musical selections by the Franklin College Male Quartet and the Women's Glee Club. Speeches were made by Professor C. H. Hall, Dean H. N. Sherwood, Professor R. C. Roberts and President C. E. Goodell for part of the faculty on the program, and the various classes were represented. by the following men: Gerald F. Branigin, Roscoe Freeman, Lloyd Cook and William Mullendore. , , One special feature of the program was Professor Roberts' presentation of the I. C. A. L. cup to the Franklin College basketball team for the winning of the cham- pionship for the season just closed. Earl Pike received the token for the team, amid the cheers of the entire company present. D A . U E The last number on the program was the Pres1dent's'address 1n.wh1ch he gave definite outlines of the plans for a greater Franklin which is in sight in the next. few years. Lantern slides were shown, giving clear views of the proposed buildings. The President's speech was enthusiastically received by the audience, and the stu- dents left the hall inspired with the anticipation of the Franklin which is to be in the near future. x ANR IN CGLLEGE C 21 QLFR .

' , The reminiscences which we are asked to furnish for this Annual may well cen- ter mostly about the iirst brick building erected by the institution. This was first considered in 1841, but it was not finished until 1847, about the time the Madison 81 Indianapolis Railroad reached Franklin. The first train is believed to have steamed into the village August 27, 1847. This building which is now the north wing of the main building was originally planned to have each of the three stories divided into twelve rooms, with cross halls running throughuithe center the entire length and width of the building. This was modified before completion by converting the southeast section of rooms and the adjoining north and south hall of the third story into a chapel. A cupola 14 feet square was built over the center of'the building, in which the then new bell was , 19 FRANKLIN COLLEGEIEQZY Q gait THE ALMANA CK hung, the same that now hangs mostly silent in the tower above the front entrance to the main building. The upper part of the roof of the building, the width of the cupola, was Hat, and was accessible by the stairway leadin t th l fl Th ' ' around the Hat roof d g up o e cupo a oor. ere was no railing . . , an a near tragedy occurred one day, when two students getting into a scuffle on this roof, one of -them lost his balance and toppled over. Fortunately lgiilgcillgeg against one of the row of chimneys down near the eaves andwas rescued re . Two long rooms the width of the cupola, 14 feet, were finished in theattic. These were assigned to the two literary societies then existing in the institute, the north one to the Ciceronian, and the south to the Demosthenian. These two societies were later combined into the Union Literary Society, which we think occupied the north or former Ciceronian hall. About 1852, certain members growing dissatisfied about something, withdrew from the Union Literary Society and organized the Peri- clesian Society, which found domicile in the old Demosthenian or south attic hall. The remaining members abandoning the Union Literary Society name organized the Webster Society, which continued to occupy the north attic hall. After the writer's arrival and membership in the Webster Society in 1853, he recalls seeing the old Union Literary Society banner hanging or lying around. ' There was no football, baseball or basket ball games in those days, but we played bullpen and cat and other batting games, and hollered as loud as you do now, and had a good time. I There were no fraternities until the late fifties, and there were no girls in college, and the town boys didn't like it if we paid attention to the town girls, and so there was plenty of energy lying around loose for college pranks and tricks. It may suffice if we record two or three of these. One -zero winter night the bell up in the cupola was turned and propped, open end up, and filled with water. Next morning the' janitor's efforts to summon all to the chapel service, with which the day's work 'was then ushered in, were unavailing, for the clapper could not clap in a bell full of solid ice. Generally each year's new comers furnished one or more of the fresh or smart aleck class of students who seemed ,to other students to need some instruction not provided for in the classrooms. We recall the ,case of one young man who was in the habit of walking into other fellow's rooms without knocking and who had a pen- chant for helping himself to hair oil, which was a common toilet article for young men of that period. "Bears Oil" we recall was one of the favorite labels on the hair oil bottles. So some of the other boys secured a mixture with which the hair oil bottle in one of their rooms was filled and set in its usual place. joe came in and took the bait, pouring a liberal amount of the supposed oil in his palms, he rubbed it well into his hair when presto, the comb would not take hold, the hair was matted tight. The other fellows were sympathetic about his having got the. wrong bottle, and in making suggestions for removing the stuff, all of which were fruitless. Finally some one said there's only one thing that will remove it, viz., tickly cumpas, 'and that could be had at the store of Simon Moore, the leading druggist of the town at .that time. Mr. Moore was wise, and having heard the young man's request, he quietly said, I'm entirely out of it. We need not pursue the story farther, except to say that joe became a prominent lawyer in the capital of one of the middle western states and ' ecided merit. a Wrhlsle in the Christian Messenger, the Baptist paper for Indiana in the 1840's, some interesting items.

ELGIN I The call for reminiscence of my Franklin College days are voicings more swift than any wireless message, back to the scenes of sixty-one years ago, when I first be- came a student in 'fDear Old Franklin." For a few moments I was very happy, yet only for a few, for when I began to call, "Ho boys, where are you?" and only four voices rresponded, I began to feel very lonely-deeply moved by the fact that so few of the Old Boys" before the Civil War, remain. But when I heard again that inimit- able laugh of "Al Oglei' ring out, I, "Old Elgin," came to myself once more and did avow that I was really there and if Ogle tried to plunge me in the ditch full of water along side the railroad track as he did once in student days, I would surely "duck" nimiagaln, or at least try to do so, feeble as I am. But now to a somewhat formal reminiscence of my college days. I entered Franklin College in January, 1859. My first duty was to see President Bailey. Accordingly I went to his home with Mr. Burton. We were met at the door by the queenly "Mother Bailey," the president's wife. She told us that we would find the president in the barn. Going hither we found him seated on a stone milking a cow. I couldn't express my joy at this discovery, for I had gone in the greatest trep- idation, -to find a college president a specimen of the Genus Homo upon which I had never yet looked. Behold, I found this six feet, four inches, two hundred pounds, human specimen, just human and engaged in one of the tasks that had been one of my own dirty occupations for many years. I felt myself drawn at once to that com- manding personality, as a child drawn to a father and his attraction for me has never been lost through all these years. A I cannot recall striking episodes in my student life, but the benefits derived from these days, as the result of the associates with faculty and students, are many indeed. I recall President Bailey and his little band of teachers, viz.: Prof. Bailey, the president's brother, Professors Brumback and Hougham and Tutors Furgason and Wallace, the latter 'a worthy lifelong resident of Franklin. ...Of the student body there was a group of us: john Craft Cabout the fairest, kinduest, purest man I ever knewj, Perry Sanders, Noah Harper, J. K. Howard, O. M.- Merrick and Albert Ogle, whom I shall never forget. We were seven there 'fwe are sevenv still, now, and forever. My association with these, my college mates, brought, me measures of pleasure such as no earthly scales can weigh and friendships that even death cannot break. , ' ' - ' Not meaning to be partial, let me add that no class going out from the institution in all of its history, has made a larger contribution to the cause for which the college stands, than this-'little group itself. With a single exception, no other graduate of our dear old alma mater has made a more valuable or larger contribution to Baptist inter-A ests in Indiana than has that member of this same group of seven. The' excep- tion to which I refer did not belong to our group of seven, and was W. T. Stott, a sun that rose above us all a.nd through nearly three score years shed its warmth upon our lives, to bless and to cheer. 1 At the close of my stay in college, an event occurred which shook the very .life of the institution, and sent it staggering towards that .long suspension which soon fol- lowed. I refer to that memorable agonizing cry which our Government sent out for men just after commencement in 1862-a. cry which the students. and teachers in Franklin College were not slow to hear and to heed-your humble friend being one of them. ' I therefore find it to be no more than is due to the college that we consider for -a ' h' b t ' rt. - - ' ' .

The most active and efficient worker in this work of enrolling volunteers was T. J. Morgan, with his class- mates, whom we all delight to honor-G. W. Grubbs an easy second. Hence it was only just that T. J. Morgan became first lieutenant of the company, while his friend and our friend Grubbs was soon to be honored in being asked to become secretary to Colonel Harrison, and later still to be made major of the 42nd Colored Infantry, while Stephen Dungan, teacher of music in the college, became second lieutenant of the com- pany. As to the writer of these notes, his reward came in being recommended by a majority of the officers and by many of the men for appointment as chaplain of the regiment, yet not being an ordained minister-but only licensed-he was found to be ineligible for this honor. However, the good Colonel Harrison did not forget this action of his men, but three days after entering Uthe enemy's country" called our friend to his tent, and commissioned him regimental postmaster, a position of no small respon- sibility and labor, which he was enabled to fill for sixteen months to the satisfaction of nearly all, both officers and men.

I left the war, I bore with me a commenda- tion from Colonel Harrison of my good character and faithfulness as a soldier and a commendation from Colonel Morgan, praising the good record I had made as chap- lainQ These two documents are among my choicest possessions. In the fall of 1863 when the Government began to arm the ex-slaves, Lieutenant Morgan was one of the first to pass examination required of all who sought commis- sions in the colored regiments. Having received his commission as lieutenant-colonel, he was ordered from Nashville to Galatin, Tenn., under orders to organize a colored regiment. This he proceeded' to do and soon having this task almost finished, he asked Colonel Harrison for the 70th Indiana Regiment, to recommend his postmaster, your humble servant to the Secretary of War for appointment as chaplain of the 3rd U. S. Colored Infantry. In about three weeks my commission came, and with it a three weeks' furlough, that I might return north to be ordained as a fully eligible clergyman. Returning south I at once began my work-the third man in the United States to be commissioned chaplain for one of those black regiments. My duties as such were to look after both the religious and educational interests of these men just out of sla- very. I accordingly became both preacher and school teacher of my regiment, and see- ing that we "boys" had left our white comrades, and gone into the new and risky work, in order to utilize this vast element, so as to save as manyjas possible of our neighbors at home from having to enlist, we thought we were doing a patriotic and humanitarian service, yet strange to say, it almost ostracized us at first, both at home and in the army, but we "stood to our guns" and soon won out. Our chief aim, however, was to make these dark men--dark not only of skin, but of mind-intelligent and efficient soldiers. Accordingly one of my first duties as chaplain was to find out the educational status of the men. This I did by making a Hsurveyv-yes, that was the word to use even then-to find out how many had any education. Out' of one thousand men, I found only ten who even knew their letters, and just three who could read even a l1t- tle. I accordingly formed the first sergeants into a class, and after starting them to spell and read, had them form classes and go to teaching their comrades. Thus in six months' time we had three hundred. able to read the New Testament, and 1n.a year?s time we had 700 able to read the newspapers. I had also taught them arithmetic, geography, writing, etc., and given them some knowledge of the Government and their duties as citizens. As to their efficiency as soldiers, let General George H. Thomas, "Old Pap," the great commander of the Army of the Cumberland, speak. All through one year of training and engaging in several hard fights, General Thomas--himself an old slaveholder-had shown deep interest in these dark comrades, often riding a mile from his headquarters over to our camp to witness our dress parade- and even to ad- dress the sergeants. How well do I remember how his words thrilled Colonel Morgan 9 FRANK N COLLEGE Q Q9 'ITI-IE ALMANJ fcrc and myself, we feeling that our reward h - - back of us at dress parade the evening Incclfbcibmfhziet biailileasoilxellsihuldlm bf hose just General Cullum, his chief of transportation and lon afterwards U Yi d'S pea mg to from Illinois, his words were these: "There, Generzi Cullum is a ile timerifltfellaieluifxlill depend upon to do anything that any regiment in my army can do 5 With this esti- mate of these men as soldiers, please remember that if the 175 ooo of the f slaves whom we helped to make into good soldiers, were drawn up, in files of Zi: htarnnilcfrl each, the files placed three feet apart, the line would extend thirteen miles aid take four hours to march past a given point. And then if you would onl believe me that in the scores of battles in which these men took part not a man to niry knowled e was ever reported as a "Slacker" or failed to stand brav,ely in his place on the ling I am sure you will appreciate them in their work. As a single instance of this take the'First Colored Brigade, Army of the Cumberland, at Nashville, commanded, by our brave Colonel Morgan, in the battle which began next morning after the above words of General Thomas were spoken. I was stationed just in the rear of the line with my band of sixty musicians, as stretcher-bearers in waiting when our line moved against the rebel works. In thirty minutes' time we had driven the enemy from its outer line, forcing him back one-fourth of a mile to his second line, when coming upon im- passible obstructions, our whole line of eighteen hundred men was obliged to fall back, which was ,done in perfect order, yet at a loss of almost one-third of our num- bers in killed and wounded, and yet not a man flinched. And the same was true of the Second Colored Brigade, in the fighting the second day of the battle. So it was also in many other fights wherecolored troops were engaged. And now if you will consider these things rightly you will see how we three of your soldier boys helped to bring a mighty reinforcement to your white brothers in this most critical period of the war. I cannot therefore, pass on from this matter without suggesting that if, after all that, these colored troops did in the late war, there is not an improvement in the treatment of the colored people in our country-a far fuller measure of justice rendered to them- as sglredas there is a God of justice in heaven, a fearful reckoning will surely come to our an . . What we three did however, is by no means all that the "old boys" of this college did. There were others with us such as Captain Larenze Billingsly, for exampleg while in the 70th Indiana and other regiments, there were such noble spirits as the late Col- onel Daniel M. Ransdall, long the honored sergeant-of-arms of the United States Sen- ate, and that bright, clean-souled Lieutenant D. M. Reese, who gave his life at Nash- ville, while leading his company of cavalry belonging to one of our Hoosier regiments. Nor were these all. For there was I. K. Howard, who went through "the 90-day" service at the opening of the War, and Albert Ogle' of the 117th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and O. M. Merrick of the 118th Volunteers. Isom and Wiley Burton, the latter dying in the service. And then as the peer of these, was he whose name we all delight to honor as the leader of us all--Wm. T. Stott-who as a captain in the 38th Indiana Regiment, rendered a service equal to that of any of us. But imperfect mem- ory and want of space forbid my mentioning others of the loyal sons of "Old Frank- lin" who did equally with those mentioned "their bit" in helping to save the Union. So let us all join in giving all honor to the "Old College" of those days. And now with most cordial greetings to both the old and the young alumni, with profound admiration and gratitude for the great advance made in recent years in the interests of the college, and with the best of all good wishes for its continued and un- ceasing prosperity, I am with you in all best service of 1t. .4 E29 I QKFRANKLIN COLLEGE Sy A13 Q i AL A Q lay ALBERT OGLE Indianapolis, age, 81 years Father of Our President's Wife Born April 10, 1839, near Vevay, Indiana.

' t a rciar c caongag 19 THE A MAN Q33 - L AC rc greg EP REMINISCENCE OF ALBERT OGLE 1 My introduction to Franklin College was in the latter half of the fifties, of the asf Century, dllflng the presidency of Dr. Silas Bailey. The boundaries of the campus were the same then as now, however, it was enclosed by a fence. Pedestrians C.I1f6I'CCl the grOLlndS, not through gates but over stiles sufficientl hi h t k t live stock. There were only two buildings-known as the Uoldl' aid fjhe flerlleillvll' Th ' - ey were Separated from each other by a space of about fifty feet, rrudway of which was locateduthe well with its old wooden pump, which furnished the water supply for the institution. The faculty was small at this time. It was composed of Dr., Bailey,1Pr0fessor Brumback and Professor Hougham. Dr. Wallace and Mr Fergason were aso engaged 'in teaching in the capacity of tutors. Each teacher, however, taught several subjects and heard four or five recitations daily, and yet I make bold to declare that the class room work done then would compare favorably with that done in our bestcolleges today. Dr. Bailey .was a typical college president. He was tall, being six feet or more and was splendidly poised. By his manner and general appearance he evinced a quiet, positive dignity that commanded profound respect in the classroom and else- where. And' yet his personality was so leasin and enial that the most timid P student did not fear to approach him. Neverthiless, vghen occasions required, he could say things so severely striking as to be not soon forgotten. At one time three or four students had been guilty of repeated violations of the college rules. These violations had become so flagrant and defiant that patience had ceased to be a virtue, so the Doctor took occasion one morning at Chapel to give the guilty parties solemn warning, saying among other things: "Young man, you may think I do not know who you are, but I do know, and I will tell you how I know. In the first place I know that such men Qindicating a large number by namel are morally incapable of such conduct, and in the second place'I know that you who carry most of your brains behind your ears are quite capable of tit." Professor Hougham, who held the chair of Chemistry, was a man of ability and high attainments and was thoroughly equipped for his work. He performed it with a tireless energy, whether the task was physical or mental. He owned a farm two or three miles east of town. Early one spring he employed a few students who were anxious to earn a dollar, to help pay their way through college, to assist him in clearing, up a wooded tract which he was preparing for a blue grass pasture. Had one been an early riser he might have seen .the professor on several Saturday mornings, with a squad of young men, equipped with ax and cross-cut saw and a big well-filled lunch basket, rushing afoot to the farm. The work consisted in cutting fallen timber into logs small enough to be carried on hand. spikes by .six men and thrown into heaps to be burned. For whole days at a time the writer has matched his lifting powers against those of the professor Whlle at OPPOSIIC ends of a hand spike with a chunk of a log between 'us. The wagesipald us were twenty-five cents per day, which was considered liberal in those times. We re- turned each evening after sundown and stopped at the Hougham home for dinner. One can imagine with what zest a bunch of hungry young chaps partook of ia country dinner, such as Mrs. Hougham knew so well how to.prepare, especiqljy after living on such food as they were able to prepare in their own rooms. e U 77 Wereflllll tlelgcillfefslin Mathematics was Professor Brumback, and a most thorough and inspiring one he was. In reciting our Geometry, he forbade. any text books . . . - f t l t which he re- belng brought 1nto the room. This same 'standard o mfenha rainglglgs of our dass, uired of his students he imposed upon himself. One o e mem . gvho Shall be designated here by the pseudonym of Mr. Blank, was an oddity. He was b no means 3 bright student, but he possessed a genial nature and also a store of hurl,-lor and dry wit by means of which he often produced merriment for the class gi 'pg A NKL.1Ng CGLLEG E- 21 19 3 -THE F AI-'MANA C K and for the professor as well. At 'one time, when all the class had left the black- board and taken their seats, Blank still stood rubbing his foreheadwith his chalky fingers and gazing intently at a figure he had drawn. After patiently waiting for several minutes, Professor Brumback said, "Blank, have you gotten your boat aground?" Quick as a flash, came the reply in Blank's characteristic droll: "Pro- fessor, I don't know that I've ever had her afloat." Upon another occasion after more than half the class had flunked, the professor lost his patience and, grew sarcastic, saying, "I think when we have gotten through with this text book we shall have enough new propositions and enough new methods of demonstration to get out an entirely new book." "If we do," said Blank "I th' k I , in will be entitled to aiblg share of the profits of the copyright," which remark immediately restored the professor's mental equilibrium. - The only organizations among the students that I remember were two literary societies-The Periclesian and the Webster. The writer was a "Peri." It was the custom of these societies to hold a "public meeting" each spring. These occasions were considered as important events. Special programs were prepared. The faculty and their wives were invited, the boys brought in their girl friends from the town and a social hour was enjoyed at the close of the exercises ' The life of the student body is quite different now from what it wasthen. A period of sixt e h b ' ' ' ' y y ars as rought changes in conditions and customs most of which are ,unquestionably for the better. We had no co-eds., With notable exceptions the .general idea in many sections of the country seemed to be,that women were not capable of mastering those subjects named in the curriculum for men. It was thou ht that if h ' g a woman ad a smattering of French and had some knowledge of instrumental music and fancy needle work and-painting, she had a liberal and finished education. Neither did we have college colors nor yells nor class "sera s " , P but we did have sports. They were not organized, and hende we had no teain contests 'th t d r f ' ' ' W1 s u ents o other colleges. Our games consisted chiefly of wrestling, the broad and high jump, foot races and exploits on the trapeze. We had no other method of amusing ourselves. Occasionally a few of us would conspire to play a practical joke on a fellow student. These jokes, while often embarrassing to the victim, were always harmless. Mention of a single instance will serve to illustrate their nature. In the early autumn of 1859, a most estimable young woman from Michigan came on an extended visit to relatives and friends in Franklin. Later, she was induced to accept the position as teacher of a country school about two miles from town. John Craft, a ministerial student, father of Miss Nettie Craft who is now so highly esteemed by the Franklin people, both as a teacher and as all woman-had become slightly acquainted with this country school teacher. One day he received through the mail a note from her, accepting, what evidently purported to be hisinvitation to attend quite an informal social event, that was soon to occur. Though closely observed by those who had guilty knowledge of the trick, he .gave no outward sign of being perturbed. At the appointed time he procured a livery "rig," drove out and brought the young woman in to the entertainment and spent a most enjoyable evening, to the discomforture of his jokers. In reviewing the scenes and experiences of these college days, the sweetest and most cherished memories awakened, are those of friendships then formed- friendships that grew stronger and more endearing with the passing of each suc- ceeding year. How vividly do I recall Dr. T. Stott, Barnett Wallace, T. J. Mor- gan, George Grubbs, F. W. Brown, William McCoy, John E. Mcffoy, john Craft, I. K. Howard, Wiley Burton, Isom Burton, O. M. Merrlck, W1ll1am.Elg1n, Perry Saunders, J. W. Potter and others. ,Alas, how few of those dear.fr1ends remain. Would that more of them could have lived to hail with exultlng .joy the dawn Of the day, that now promises to usher in the New and Greater F rankhn, the brightness of which will dim the glories of all the days of the past.

REMINISCENCE OF ISOM BURTON I I Was at Franklin for a short time, only one term in 1861, so that I hardly deserve notice. I was not there long enough to make a record because Uncle Sam had to interfere, calling me to the bat with 'him for three years. From August, 1862 to August, 1865, I saw a great deal of scrapping and a lot of fun and experience. During my one term at Franklin, I joined the Periclesian Literary Society. I paid all my board at Tutor Furgason's by digging potatoes and sawing wood mornings and evenings. ' There Was' a nice girl living with the Furgason family. I tried to make her think I thought a lot of her, but all my professions took no effect and ran off like water off a duck's back. Wiley Burton, a lieutenant in the army with me was my brother. He died in the service. His name appears on the memorial tablet in the Assembly room. I was born February 26, 1841. I am 79 years old but I tell the old maids and Widows that I am 23.

When about two years old, I came with my parents to Clinton County, near Forest, where they took a pioneer tract purchased from the state. Here I grew to manhood and learned all I could at the ublic s h l b ' , I , p c oo, eing gortunate in having a teacher who taught algebra. Our text books were McGuffy's ' ' J 7 ' - . pell1ng Book, Pinneos Grammar, Greens Analysis, which was a higher book on grammar, Ray's Arithmetic and a reader. Spelling and reading were made a prom- inent part of the daily exercises. This teacher encouraged me ,to attend college hence I selected Franklin, the only Baptist college in the state. ' 7 I attended Franklin College during the winter terms of 1861 and 1862. Among the professors I remember were Dr. Wallace and Professor Hougham. Rev. Silas Bailey, D. D., was President. I remember that the roof of Dr. Baileyls house caught fire one day. We students rushed out from our rooms and helped to ex- tinguish it. There was no fire department then, only a volunteer bucket brigade. Rev. J. K. Howard's .younger brother wrote me a letter recently in which he stated that I was the only student who took bucket in hand and locked my room door before starting for the fire, and that it was my bucket which waslargely instrumental in putting out the fire. I I was converted the third day of March, 1861, the day before the inauguration of President Lincoln. The next winter when attending college, I carved the date of my conversion on the sandstone window sill outside the window of my room, which was the southwest corner room. Also carved John 3:16 on the same sill. I remember of debates in the Periclesian Society in which Rev. Albert Ogle and I participated. Membership in this society was limited to male students but we occasionally held an open meeting to which the members could bring their lady friends. 4 We had no athletic contests of any kind amonggourselves or with other institu- tions. Baseball, football, basketball and other games were unknown at Franklin then. Our entire athletic equipment consisted- of two upright posts about eight feet apart with a turned wooden horizontal bar thrustthrough holes in the posts about seven feet from the ground. I was one of the few students who could spin around with elbows hooked over the bar and the bar behind my back. I worked on the farm as usual during the summer of 1863, and in September enlisted in the service of my country being honorably discharged in February, 1864. My regiment, the 118th was one of the four regiments comprising the Persimmon Brigade. U I taught school near home during the winter of 1864. Since Franklin College had closed on accountof the Civil War, I attended a fall term at Ladoga Seminary, Ladoga, Indiana. At the close of the term, I preached my first sermonin the Baptist Church there. . In November, 1865, I was united in marriage with Miss Sarah C. Sims, the daughter of a neighboring pioneer farmer. A few days later I started for Shurtleff College, Alton, Ill. There I took two years preparatory Work and three years theological studies graduating in June, 1870. At the commencement CXCICISCS I W011 the -prize of 315.00 for the best oration, including delivery. Rev. Albert Ogle was my college mate at Shurtleff College also. I have made my home in Russiaville since 1892, except the last five months which have been spent in the Methodist Hospital at Indianapolis. Mrs. Merrick is living and we have two sons and two daughters. 'Nur 19 FRANKLIN coLL,EGEfL2y Q Q9 iTI-1E ALMANKClIC pg A quartet of 1860 which sang for College functions.

In the fall of this year he entered Rochester University, graduating there in july, 1864. In September, 1864, he entered Rochester Theological Seminary. Most of his pastorates were in northern' Indiana. His last pastorate was at Salem. Mr. Craft was prominent in Franklin College circles. Students knew him as a man of high hopes and lofty aims. A prominent feature of his character was his sweetness of spirit. I-Ie was markedly true. Disease and death overtook him when he stood at the threshold of that life for which he was so thoroughly prepared. Gordon Clevenger, of the Class of '21, is his grandson.

Another death that has fallen heavily upon the hearts of the members of this Association was that of Professor F. W.

Only eight of these remain today. The names of all of them, the faces of tive of them, and a reminiscence from each of the five is found elsewhere in this department. It is a matter of regret that a likeness and reminiscence could not be obtained from the three others. I Dry Bailey's burdens in Franklin were heavy. "He came from prosperous New England schools." He found no endowment, no competent income. In the state were no preparatory schools and no demand for higher education. Some of these ministers best qualified to help him "withdrew their sympathy and support" be- causeof the difference in the theology. Itlwas the old story of bricks without straw. Though his diary gave evidence of heart- aches and keen mental distress, he kept cheerful, "held on his way, no repining, no relaxing of purpose, no drooping of faith." "His best Work was done in connection with Franklin College. Living, he gave it the best of himself, and dying, he left it his library, his estate, and a memory to cherish? - OOOO llllllllwlll H ,..a',"':5. -'EF ,, Avi' Hug Ah! - .f ,Q u bluff! lvl 4. .-s' 'vu' 'N fs -Ss 4,5 ug - .' ., r , g : . 11 f A Q: '.Q.3n?54TimY:.r,-- Q93 FRANKLIN co1,1,EG1:3 EQ Q9 THE ALMANACIL pg 3 0 l E 1 A 1 l l , .

HoUoHAM True to the form of those days Professor john S. Hougham was born on his father's farm in Fayette County, Indiana, in the year 1821. When 19 years old, in 1840, he entered Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana. He graduated july 26, 1846, with the degree of A. B. It is worthy of note that when he went to or returned from Crawfordsville he covered the distance between the latter place and Indianapolis afoot. His brother, the father of Mr. Edward and Mr. Charles Hougham, of Franklin, took the young Wabash student on horseback between Franklin and Indiana.polis when he came from and returned. to Wabash. In the fall of 1846, Mr. Hougham became principal of the Danville, Indiana, Academy. Franklin College called him to the Chair of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy in 1848. In this department he taught until 1863, when he was trans- ferred to the Chair of Agricultural Chemistry and Kindred Sciences. Before under- taking the work of the new department, he spent a year in Brown University do- ing post-graduate work. Returning to F ranklin, he built up an excellent laboratory a.nd established and superintended the manufacture of chemical and philosophical apparatus. He made some original investigations also in respect to the influence of mercury on the human body. Besides serving the institution as a teacher, he was secretary of the College Board. He gave the institution financial aid also, in spite of the objections to this course presented by his friends. He said in this connection: "I am so interested in the College that I cannot do otherwise. It must not go down." In 1862, President Bailey resigned because of ill-health and Professor Hougham became Acting-President for a year or more, retiring sometime during the year 1865. From this latter date to 1868, he developed his farming interests near Franklin. At one time during his connection with the College, he was Civil Engineer of the City of Franklin and Surveyor of johnson County. Called in 1868 to the Chair of Philosophy and Agriculture in the Kansas State Agricultural College, Man- hattan, Kansas, he remained four years in this position and then went to Purdue in 1872 to the Chair of Analytical Chemistry. Resigning in 1876, he delivered lectures on Physics and Chemistry at Bethany College, Topeka, Kansas, Cooper Academy, Dayton, Ohio, Western Female Seminary, Oxford, Ohio, and at the same time managed farming interests in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Indiana. I Returning to Manhattan, Kansas, in 1881, he carried on his business interests for a decade or more. He is buried at Manhattan near that community which knew him as a distinguished citizen. He was married twice. One son, Mr. Harry Hougham lives in Manhattan. The widow and a daughter, Mrs. Hespera Hougham Mikesell, are living in Austin, Texas. Many relatives live in and about Franklin. Dr. Hougham was a most in- spiring teacher. He had a vein of fun in his nature and this together with his ability endeared him to his students. His mind was keen, his knowledge was exact. He spoke precisely. He had unusual practical ability, being a good business man. His writings were piquant, breezy, incisive. Men of affairs had the highest regard for his ability 'and character. He became a man of national importance in Baptist educational circles, receiving the degree of L. L. D. His name and a sketch of his life appears in the Baptist Encyclopedia. - 19lfFR NKLIN COLLEG Eggf 51 Q9 'rum ALMANACIQ Egg 1 JEREMIAH BRUMBACIX A N1 Student Frankhn College 1852 1856 Faculty Frankhn College 1856 1864 D1ed januarv 6 1912 Qpyg FRANKLIN CCLLEGE gig f 1 f I , . . 1 . 7 1 ' 1 2 ' ' , 7 .4 7 AA .5 - fr Y Y , ' , , f ' ' v 7 Y Y ' Y Y - ' , 77- ll' , 179 - Qojyrnm ALMANACIL jpg .5 JEREMIAH BRUMBACK Among those beautiful "Lidking hills" between Newark and Hebron, Ohio, on his father's farm, Jeremiah Brumback was born September 16, 1863. Granville College, the Baptist College of Ohio, was close to the young Brumback's home, and he entered this institution in 1850 at the age of 17 years. At this time Dr. Silas Bailey was President of Granville College. In 1852 Dr. Bailey was invited to the Presidency of Franklin College. Mr. Brumback had become much attached to Dr. Bailey, accordingly when the latter came to Franklin Mr. Brumback came also, accompanied by two other Granville students, Mr. Robert Collet and Mr. Daniel Trickler. Mr. Brumback graduated in 1856 and on june 22, 1856 he was made a tutor. On june 25, 1859, he was elected Professor of Mathematics and retained this position until june, 1864. At this period'the College closed because all the boys had gone to war save two. These two, a Mr. Stout and a Mr. Grinstead, had been in the service but had been so disabled on the field that they were unfit for further military service and so had returned to College. Not all of the tragedies in "Old F ranklin" have appeared in class plays or in the entertainments of the Public Speaking Department. We mentioned these facts here because Professor Brumback and Instructor Barnett Wallace were then the only teachers remaining to conduct classes. Relieved of college duties, Mr. Brumback studied law and opened an office in Indianapolis where he practiced for a year. ' About 1867 he invested heavily in an Idaho mine and in company with men similarly interested, he started to find it. Arriving in Boise by the way of New York and the Panama Isthmus, San Francisco and an immigrant train, he learned that the mine was not on the Idaho landscape. He immediately began the practice of law and at one time during his prime wrote Dr. Wallace of Franklin, that he had the second largest law practice in Idaho. For a number of years he was a state legislator and also judge of the circuit court. ' In 1905, having retired from active life, he came to the scenes of his boyhood, Granville, Ohio, with his son, Professor Arthur Brumback. The latter had been called from the acting Presidency of McMinnville College, Oregon, to the Chair of Chemistry in Denison University. N In 1911, Professor Jeremiah Brumback received a call from one of his former pupils at Franklin. It was touching to note the joy the call gave the aged, infirm teacher. He asked abou-t the "old boys." His interest in Franklin had not abated. He knew that the end was near and speaking of the future he said, "It's alright." He died january 6, 1912, leaving just one child, Mr. Virgil' Brumback, born in Franklin, now living in Idaho. His son, Professor Arthur Brumback died just four years later than the father, in 1916, having filled the Chair of Chemistry at Denison University in a signal manner. As a teacher, Professor Brumback commanded respect by his dignity, ability and standards. He did not easily brook indolence, but all students were attached to him. He was a wonderful teacher, and left his imprint on every student that came into his classes. His mind was forceful, of an analytical and judicial cast. He had a very positive nature, and held to convictions tenaciously. Among men he was known as a talented lawyer and a scholar. ' ' . 19 "FRANKLgiN,COLLEG" 180 V Q98 THE ALMANACIC lzg FRANCIS M.

FURGASON The tree is bent as the twig is inclined. The life story of Francis M. Furgason is an excellent example. We read that he sprang from sturdy Scotch stock. Surely the following sketch of his life points to the source from which it flowed. Born in 1833 on his father's farm, now a part of Indianapolis, he lived the life of the average farmer's son until he was 18 years old. At this juncture he became somewhat of an exception to the general rule since he went to college, entering Franklin in the fall of 1851. He graduated in 1856. This sa.me year, 1856, he was made a tutor in the Classical Preparatory Department. This posi- tion he held until 1864. In 1867 he went to Kansas City and entered the insurance business. He died there in 1909, age 76 years. Mr. Furgason's students remember him as having a genial nature, a ready smile and a fine, clean-cut face. Hewas a care- ful thinker, and knew the subjects that he taught. He was be- loved,by the college boys of that day and those who are still living cherish their memory of him. In Franklin College circles he will always be ,known as Tutor Furgason. One of his colleagues at'Franklin wrote of him that Hperhaps no other member of the faculty had so many acquaintances outside the College as Tutor Furgason." V Mr. Furgason made an enviable reputation for himself in Kansas City. When he died he was president of the Furgason and Taff Underwriting Company. An estimate of his life, by busi- ness and professional men of the city appeared 'in a Kansas City newspaper, from which we will quote. "Although Mr. Furgason was one of the best-known men, in a business and a social way, among the old residents of the city, he is remembered chiefly for his connection with charitable institu- tions. Almost since its founding he had been a deacon and clerk of the Calvary Baptist Church. He was a member of the Board of the Humane Society, and for several years past had been secretary of the Provident Association, the Old Men's Association and the Newsboy's Association. There was scarcely a newsboy but knew and loved him. His private and public life was without the slightest stain. He radiated cheer and sunshine in all directions. He was one of God's noble-amen." The only surviving child, a son, Mr. Frank Furgason, suc- ceeded his father as head of F urgason and Tabb. tiff RANKLIN Common 351 Q Q9l,THEAL1VIANACIL 3529 om left to right-T. L.

At the age of seventeen years, 1853, he entered the Franklin Preparatory Department. He was at one time a student- teacher. After graduation in 1860, he was elected to the regular teaching staff, remaining until the school closed in 1864. Subsequently he spent three years in eastern medical schools and began the practice of medicine in Franklin in 1867. Students knew Instructor Wallace as dignified and scholarly. One of his colleagues complimented him by saying, "The boys never thought him too easy for their good instruction? Dr. Wallace as we know him today, hasthe distinction of be- ing the oldest living alumnus and the only living member of ,teach- ing force of the period from 1860-1864. Those college friends that were his intimate friends and all the colleagues on the 'faculty staff are gone. Little wonder that recently he said that sometimes he felt lonely. Dr. Wallace is known for his unflinching adherence to con- viction, for the exactness of his knowledge, and a wonderful memory. He is an prominent Franklin citizen, highly esteemed for his charac- ter and his ability. He has an intimate knowledge of the history of the school from 1853 until the date of his retirement from the treasurership. 6 . For seventy-two years he has been a member of the F ranklirf Baptist Church, closely allied with its work and interests and is still active. With but one short interim, he has taught a Bible Class for about thirty years. We hail Dr. Wallace as a worthy representative of a worthy past, and a sojourner in the splendid present. , Far be the day when we, must speak of him in the past tense. 19 r'nANKr.1N'coLLEG 113 21 Q l E , hgh A C K' -g...n.-...R 1 1 N lr 1 J I Q2 VF! as XL, JTC?

And aloft upon the ridge-pole Kinnick, the king of college lovers Sat with laughing face and singing, Snapped his fingers at the others, "You are slow, good friends o' Kinnick, She's a Freshman, I'm a Senior" Thus he spake, bold Royce C.
