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
In putting on the drive for the Greater Franklin, Dr. A. J. Vining
has been employed as its capable promoter.

19 THE ALMANACIL E21l
RARE AND cUR1oUs Books
The words Ubibliomaniacn and '
"bibliophile" express the regard of
men for books. 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
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. Franklin college, 13951

Another book of merit is 'Selections from W. C. Bryant," printed, illuminated
and bound by the author, Fred H. Robinson, once a student of the College.
Another, '4Manual of Church History," by T. J. Morgan, alumnus of the Col-
lege, printed and illustrated by hand. i

Edith A n M ' ' ' ' ' '
, g es, arjorle and Royce Kinnrck. 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

Leslie Carson, while Inez did what she could to still the canttinj raids in the dorm Royce made

with the Franklin. Evelyn was busy as usual with the new Volunteers A few memb f

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

It is with sincere regret that the Annual goes to press with-
out the pictures of Elizabeth Branham and Eunice Snearly,
Both have done much for Franklin College, and this book
would be incomplete without recognition of their value.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY .
Three years ago, one hundred and six Freshmen 'crossed the campus and entered the doo f
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.

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

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.

REVIEW OF THE BASKET BALL SEASON OF 1920
The 1920 basket ball season was 'one of the most successful Frank-
lin has ever experienced. 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

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.

REVIEW OF THE BASEBALL SEASON, 1919 '
The 1919 baseball team was one of the best that ever represented Franklin Col-
lege. 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. C. A. L. baseball.

REVIEW OF THE TRACK SEASON, 1919
Last spring, when the call was issued for track candi-
dates,xCoach Thurber was greeted with a number of-
veterans of former seasons. Track began 'at once to
boom as never before. With Capt. Cross, Kingsolver,
Lowery, C. Hamilton, McClure, E. Campbell, Robertson
and Harrison as a nucleus, prospects were brighter than
ever before for a winner -
The dual meet with Indiana was very successful but
in this meet Kingsolver star dash man was injured
which slowed h1m up considerably., Our entries in the
I. C A L 'meet which was held at Franklin made a
very good showing and paved the way for a successful
season this year Capt Cross easily won the distance
runs and demonstrated his superiority over the other
contestants Capt Cross was entered 1n the state meet
at Wabash and copped second place in the mile run
Ismgsolver deserves much credit for h1s showing ln the
dashes In every dual 1n which he partlclpated he was
high point man and in the I C A L meet again
emerged as high point man In the hurdles C Hamilton

between the Faculty and Seniors.
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.

Chief of the motivesof the Y. M. C. A., most Worthy of the men's organizations,
is the Christianization of the men of Franklin College. 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

THE YOUNG WOMAN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
To be well rounded, a woman needs to develop herself not only mentally and
physically, but spiritually as well. 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.

STUDENT VOLUNTEER BAND r
The Student Volunteer 'Band is becoming more of a decided factor than ever
in the religious life of the school. 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.

Under the auspices of the Student Associations of the College,
in co-operation with the State Student Department of the Y. M. C.

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.

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.

the College this year. Organized quite early in the fall of 1919, with about eighteen
members, there has been a regular attendance at all meetings, diligent work and
splendid progress under the able direction of Prof. C. W. Johnston. The spring con-
cert, given by the Glee Club in May, was exceptionally well given and showed the
earnest effort and work both of the members and of the Director, in their endeavor
to achieve the success that has been attained. Other programs in which the club has
assisted are: Fall Frolic Dinner, Charlotte Emerson Club, Christman Concert of

the Orchestra. 'In fact, with so much musical material in college it was impossible
to restrain it, and' one of the adequate ways of combining these musicians intoqan
organized group was that of starting the Orchestra. Much has been accomplished in

Arthur J. Beriault ,
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
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

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.

For many years Franklin stood as a leader in college debate. With the pro-
motion of new activities debate assumed less and less attention. Recently a few of
the men, realizing its real value, have determined to enter inter-collegiate debate
again. These men promise nothing, but you may be sure that you will hear from
them again. I

Franklin College as a member of thelndiana Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Asso-
ciation holds a prominent place 'among Indiana colleges in oratory and debate.
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
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.

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

Webster Literary Society is the oldest organization now in existence in Franklin
College. 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

sheet, and in circulation during the school year just closing. Several members of the
staff are expert newspaper folk, and the paper has gone forward under their supervis-

The Women's Press Club of Franklin College isa new thing under the sun.
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.

And it came to pass that in the dormitory in the days of February two maidens
planned a birthday spread. 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.
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
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

FRANKLIN FALL FROLIC
Several new traditions have been established in Franklin College this year, and
among them perhaps the most important is that of the annual Franklin Fall Frolic,
wh1ch.was held for the first time November 21. 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.

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
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

Q91 THE ALMANACIC QQQ
REMINISCENCE OF WM. 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
I therefore find it to be no more than is due to the college that we consider for -a

vicinity, with fully one-fourth of its members students of this institution-this fact
leaving the college so reduced that it soon had to be suspended. 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. When. 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

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.

19 THE A MAN
Q33 - L AC rc greg
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
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
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
'pg A NKL.1Ng CGLLEG E-
-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 "
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. ALBERT OGLE

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

REV. O. M. MERRICK
I was born in Franklin County, Indiana, near Brookville, july 10, 1842. 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
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
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.

genuine piety. He was inspiring and convincing.

Q, THE ALMANACIL 21
Dr. john S. Hougham in writing of President Bailey says:
'4He is altogether best represented and reproduced in the lives of
the men he taught." They are his "Episites, known and read of
men." 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? -

DR. JOHN s. 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. -

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
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. ' ' .

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
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.

TUTOR BARNETT WALLACE
Tutor Barnett Wallace was born, almost under the shadow
of the college in which he labored, in johnson County, December
20, 1836. 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.

Should you ask me whence these stories
Whence these legends and traditions
I should answer, I should tell you
From the parlor and the lobby,
From the Dorm steps in the twilight,
From the halls and steps and classrooms,
From all Franklin come these echoes.
Ye who love the haunts of knowledge,
Listen to these tales of romance,
To the voice of a junior singer.
On the campus of the College 1
In the shadow of the beeches -
Roam at will our learned students,
Stroll and roam our happy students
Here our own Fred Robertson lingers,
Lingers long and thinks a-plenty.
He the mightiest of lovers,
He the brave and mighty lover.
.And the fair and smiling Rovene '
She is- fairest of our sisters -
Smilesat Fred and her eyes speaks wonders
Speaks of things known to some others, -
And the brave and gallant lover ,
Has a friend, a man of music
John Barnett, the sweet singer.
From the lips of john Barnett,
The musician, the sweet singer
Words of love and tender meaning
Fall unto the ferns and flowers,
Flowers are dear but Fern is.dearer,
T o the heart of the great singer.
Honor be to Norm and Hugo, .
Cry the students, 'specially Dorm girls,
They have kept their case so quiet
That they think we haven't noticed,
Haven't noticed all these flashes,
From her black eyes to his blue ones!
But oh wondrous transformation,
Ralph Thurston's nose was sure a wonder
When from DePauw he came returning
For the road had been rough and -rugged
That poor Ralph and Micky traveled.
And Jack Bailey grew up and prospered
-And T ibby to delight him
Made him little bows and smiles
Opened her great heart to others' 4
Yet we knew she liked him best,
For in halls they met and whispered
Whispered words we could not hear
And I fear we were not meant to.
All the heart' of poor Mutt fluttered,
F luttered first with hope and triumph,
Then to rocks his heart went hopping
When dear Helen frowned upon him.
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. Kinnick.
Audrey smiled and then she listened,
Let your heart speak, Audrey Cooper.
So from Franklin they departed I
Taking with them smiles and teardrops
Hand in hand some will go together
Through lifeis woodland and the meadow.
All will cherish fondest memories
Of their dates at dear old Franklin.
Thus departed all the cases
In the glory of the sunset,
In the glory of the springtime
To the region of their homeland.
