When to the ball games we have been, And seen our side yet fail to win, We’re not ashamed e’en then to wear Scarlet and Gold — our colors fair. Or when our boys beneath their feet Have trod the foe in dire defeat, We wave on high (our joys we share) Scarlet and Gold — our colors fair. But long as time shall o’er us speed, And still our boys stand in the lead, From our fond hearts we ne’er shall tear Scarlet and Gold — our colors fair. As time rolls on we soon must part; The mem’ry ne’er shall leave our heart Of ribbons waving through the air, Scarlet and Gold — our colors fair. And when our college days are o’er, And dear old friends we see no more, Well think of days when wont to wear Scarlet and Gold — our colors fair. Page 4 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES DEDICATION.

Page i6 A Short Sketch m T is always pleasant to look back at the foun¬ dation and beginning of any institution, and to notice its growth and improvements. Rev. A. P. Saunders, then a Presbyterian missionary in Greece, first conceived the idea of his great undertaking. He had been stricken down by sickness, and as he lay thus, probably thinking of his destiny, and the fate of his wife and her little child, the thought came into his kind heart to found an institution that could care for the children of deceased ministers and missionaries. For some years he gave all of his time and attention to gathering means and arranging plans. It was finally in the year 1893 that he accomplished his undertaking. After he had provided for the maintenance of those gath¬ ered together, he knew of no better way of educating them than founding an institution in their midst capable of QUIPS AND QUIBBLES of the College giving them a good education. So in the fall of that year the institution, known as Fredericksburg Collegiate Institute, was opened. The opening was encouraging, and in the spring the pupils were temporarily moved while an addition was made to the building which greatly improved the accommodations. For the first two years Dr. Saunders was the president, and was in reality so during the three years following. Whatever glory is given to those who follow ought not to be compared with the praise and the admiration of the originator. It was he who first conceived the idea, who gave his time and substance, and placed the institution on a firm footing. We do not mean to lessen the praise and the faithfulness of his successors, but to Dr. Saunders is due the glory of founding our College, and what it has accomplished, ami will accomplish, will reflect glory on him. Q U P S AND QUIB B L E .S’ PAGE 17 A Short Sketch of the College In the session of ' 95- ' 96 Dr. Saunders, during an entertainment in the Institute, announced that he had been before the proper authorities, and had succeeded in chartering the Institute as a Virginian college, to be known as Fredericksburg College. Also at the same time he announced that Dr. T. R. Sampson, D. D., would become President, while he would fill the office of Chan¬ cellor. Dr. Sampson occupied the position of President for two years, and was a splendid teacher. The next year Dr. Saunders again took charge. During the session the management thought it best to separate the home for the children of ministers from the College. So in that year Rev. F. P. Ramsay bought the College as his personal property. During the sessions of ’98-’oo he was at the head, and was one of the best in¬ structors that the College has ever had. In 1900 Mr. Ramsay sold the College to a board of trustees. In the fall of that year Dr. J. W. Rosebro, D. D., took charge. His popularity and well-known abilities soon placed our College on a firmer footing, and he soon won the esteem of his patrons. By his wise guidance the academic department has been improved, and athletics have also greatly improved. Never before have we occupied such a place among the colleges as we now hold. May he and the faculty which he has collected remain with us without a break for many years to come. w. m. s. ’04. Page i8 QUIPS AXD QUIBBLES Alexander Pierce Saunders [Founder of the Assembly ' s Home and School, and Fredericksburg College] LEXANDER PIERCE SAUNDERS was born June 12, 1865, in the beautiful Cripple Creek Valley of South-western Virginia. He was educated at Emory and Henry College, the University of Virginia, and Union Theological Seminary. While he was a student at Union Seminary, Dr. Saunders felt the call to devote his life to service in the foreign mission field. In the autumn of 1890 he sailed for Greece, having been married a few weeks before his de¬ parture to Miss Susie Baskerville, of Prince Edward Count}’. The station to which he was assigned was Salonica, where he was associated with Dr. T. R. Sampson. Dr. Saunders was peculiarly fitted by nature for the work to which he had been called. His was pre-eminently a genial and lovable disposition, winning the affection of all with whom he came in contact, and he was overflowing with youthful enthusiasm, ready to do and dare anything in the Master’s service. A career of great usefulness seemed to lie before him, but a year after he had entered the mission it was deemed best by the Assembly to trans¬ fer his work in Greece to the Native Evangelical Church. His health was greatly impaired while at Salonica by a severe attack of smallpox, from which he had only recently recovered w hen he returned to America in 1891. Soon after his home-coming Dr. Saunders was called to supply the pulpit of the Presbyterian church in Alex¬ andria for some months. In 1892 he became pastor of the Fredericksburg church. His work here will long be held in grateful and affectionate remembrance, for not only did he proclaim the gospel from the pulpit with eloquence and earnestness, and win and hold the hearts of his people by his winsome and attractive personality, but in the early days of his ministry in this city he inaug¬ urated the work that stands today as his monument. Debarred from active service in the foreign field, his heart still yearned to aid the work to which he h ad hoped to consecrate his life. In his heart, so full of sympathetic tenderness and enthusiasm for ideal love and goodness, was conceived the plan of founding a home for the children of missionaries and of deceased ministers of QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Alexander Pierce Saunders the Southern Presbyterian church, where these wards of the church should be trained and educated for future usefulness. He first brought his plan before the Synod of Virginia in October, 1892, but as it developed, he decided to transfer it to the General Assembly. This body at its session in April, 1893, at Macon, Ga., adopted the institution as planned by Dr. Saunders, appointed a Board of Trustees and decided that the school be opened in the following autumn. Dr. Saunders acting under these directions, organized and opened the “Fredericks¬ burg Collegiate Institute, ” from which at a later day grew “Fredericksburg College.” During the six years that he was associated with this institution it would be impossible to estimate his influence upon its future destiny, and upon the character of the students gathered within its walls. As one of the students of the College wrote of him at the time of his death: “ He had won us all by his love for us, and in each of those battlefields there is a monu¬ ment—a monument that will live as long as we do, which Page 19 will always remind us that there was one person who gave his life to make our lives worth living. Thus enshrined in our hearts is the memory of the purest, kindest, noblest man we ever knew, to whom we owe the debt of a world of love.” It was but too true that in imitation of his Master he gave his life for others. The pressure of heavy responsibilities and financial anxieties proved too much for a body always frail. He was com¬ pelled to give up active work and seek a change of climate, and after nearly two years of lingering suffering, borne with unfaltering courage, and unfailing sweetness, he entered into rest at Wytheville, March 21, 1900. By his own request he sleeps in the historic cemetery of Fred¬ ericksburg. The students of Fredericksburg College should ever hold in loving remembrance the noble-hearted founder of their Alma Mater. And surely we may prophesy a long and prosperous career for the institution whose foundations were laid in faith and whose cornerstone was love.

GASTON BOYLE - iG.GARRINGTON M05T1T:Y| QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Page 25 Senior Chronicles ELLOW CLASSMATES : No Gibbon wields this quivering pen to guide it on in glowing words to tell of all our deeds. We know what we have done. Let it suffice, then, to rescue only a few broken and strewn frag¬ ments from the past, only a few remnants of the things which have been. Seniors ! What a name was this to us in days gone by ! With what longing glances did we aspire to their dignity ! Yet we are only last year ' s juniors, who have ascended but one round more the ladder of intellectual attainment. The sky of knowledge is somewhat clarified ; the sunbeams seem a little brighter ; the mists have fled a little farther away. We have spent many arduous days in patient study ; the taper has full often grown dim, and shadows danced in fantastic shapes upon the walls, while we digged for priceless treasures. But the recompense is at hand. “Yet a few days,” and Miss B. will find a respite to her geological “flunks”; Miss L. will glean a few more facts from abstruse eco¬ nomics, Miss W. translate just a little more Anglo-Saxon, and their role will be played ; G. B., too, in making his asymptotic excursions, will cease to calculate whether or not he will land this side or the other side of infinity ; “ Sui Generis” will anathematize Plato’s Ideas no longer; and all will linger as but distorted and bedimmed pictures of the past. The hallowed associations and intimate friendships, now grown so dear to our hearts, will soon be tested. The lore of college days will be hurled away in derision by the march of time, but no sudden flight of years can ever erase or obliterate our happy friendships here. Knit one to another, as Tennyson to his beloved Hallam, we have formed those ties which end only in the hereafter. The end of college life is hastening ; our deeds are done; the volume is written, and we must add finis to our story. Excelsior, then, O classmates. Fit a few more golden slabs into your edifice; drink once again from the cooling spring of the muses; listen yet once more for the clarion voice of knowledge calling unto us to come up higher, and then we all shall say with the poet, “ Who loves not knowledge ? May she mix With men and prosper. Who shall fix Her pillars? Let her work prevail.” Historian.

P A G E Q U IP S A N D QUIBBLES Class of I 903 HE old order changeth, yielding place to new. ' This holds good in our class, for many changes have taken place since our Freshman days Few of our large class of ' 99 remain to form the present Junior class. The class this year is foremost on the athletic field, as well as in the class room. “Gam. ' and “Shorty,’’ for a time notorious in Study Hall, have now turned into modest young men, thanks to the gentle influence of our young ladies. “Shorty, " as his name signifies, has the honor of being the shortest man in College, yet he has been on the athletic field the longest. Gammon is our best all-round athlete in college. He is the holder of two all-round athlete medals. As we have so many athletes in our midst, one might think that we pay more attention to athletics than to our studies, but this is not the case. Our class, taken as a whole, is perhaps the most studious in College (Seniors not excepted). Last, but not the least, are the young ladies who have so well helped to raise us to our present high stan¬ dard. To tell all the achievements of each one would be too great a task for a poor Historian. However, he will mention only a few. Miss Fillah Read has quite a fine voice, and has well represented us at College concerts. Miss Susie Harris is our most talented musician. Misses Arnold and McCluer have only been with us for a short time, but have proven themselves worthy members of our class.

Page 34 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Class of I 904 It came to pass in the year 1901 that a few lads and lassies “In number nine, And all ‘ Sophs ’ of a kind,” suddenly, for an unknown reason, decided to organize their class. Now these aforesaid august scholars were students of a far-famed temple of learning, profanely called by pre¬ sumptuous “Preps.” “Old F. C.” These wise ones met with solemn faces to elect officers and decide the momentous question as to what should be their colors, and after “ Suggestions marvelous for wisdom And sagacity that could kill some,” they arrived at a wonderful decision that they would have purple and white for colors of “That class of nineteen hundred and four Which should be famous forever more.” The secretary then announced, with dignity beyond his years (of office), that he would forthwith and immediately communicate with the firm with which it was the custom in those days to deal in such cases. According to his saying, so acted he. Therefore, very soon they had a supply of catalogues and cards from which to choose their emblem. At last, having come to a decision, with char¬ acteristic promptness their orders were sent a month later. But, in the meantime, there was a called meeting of these learned “Sophs” with a matter of great importance before them, namely: to appoint a committee to select a yell and motto for the class, as no self-respecting college organization could thrive without these important factors. However, this meeting took place just before dinner, and all present were suffering pangs of hunger while their minds were so muddled by thinking of their favorite college song and particularly of these lines— “ Of all the meat that’s good to eat, From turkey down to ham, The one that tickles my palate the most Am lamb, lamb, lamb,” that they could not give their undivided attention to the matter in hand. Thus it was that the committee chosen was not as good as it might have been, and I can express the de¬ plorableness of this circumstance in no better way than by quoting the great poet ' s words : “Of all sad words of tongue or pen The saddest are these: ' It might have been.’” S.

RUSSELL Page 38 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Freshman History ER since last June, when our “Prep " days were ended, we have held high our heads and considered ourselves a most important factor in college life. For although ihe Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors look down upon us with elevated noses, they too. not so long ago, were Freshmen. Our little band consists of various types—some of us very dignified, even two have the honor of keeping Study Hall, and every one will testify as to that being a most exalted position. Others are sadly lacking in this quality of dignity, and sometimes even have to be advised as to their merits and demerits. “Get to work there, " is very frequently heard in connection with these unfortunates. But with it all, we are a bright and happy set, and any one in doubt as to our brightness will please call on any professor. Cupid in his raids did not pass us by unnoticed on the way; far from it. He left some so much mangled and bruised that it will be many a day before they recover. Some, however, he touched only lightly. A fe v put on the ironclad armor of indifference which defies even Cupid ' s arrows. But as we know, the sun is not always shining; no more are we always happy and gay, for there are plenty of “stumbling blocks " in our path, and despair seems ready to seize us at every turn. But enough; every body has his “blue days, " and the less said about them the better. We think with the poet, that “knowledge is obtained only with a weary care, " and holidays are the best days to our minds. Oh! how sweet w ' ere those days of Christmas holidays, and with what sorry faces did we return to our books, and how we blessed the departed General Washington, that he gave us a day’s holiday. Still on through the year we have been progressing, and when the end comes—but see! the turquoise of the sky is deepening into sapphire, and soon our day will be ended in the sunlight of a new and perhaps a brighter morn of the Sophomore.

However this ancient and honor¬ able organization may appear in ages to come, we have before us what it has accomplished, what brave and valor¬ ous deeds it has done! A great many of our number belong to that noble body called by some of the highest members of this in¬ stitution the “blamed scrubs, ’’ who so faithfully went up against the valiant first team and made it what it was last year. Some even played so well as to be called first team men. We also show up very well on the diamond and even in the class rooms have the members of this class distinguished themselves. Last year one of our number had the honor of securing the scholarship, and also the medal for the greatest improvement in music; and from present prospects it seems as if we are going to have the same honor this year. We can boast of cutting more recitations than any other class in school, and our Latin class can truthfully say that it rides around on spotted ponies after Caesar three times a week. As we look back over the year’s work we note with pleasure the intellectual strides that certain of our ‘ ‘calico” have made. The Professor of English asked a young lady what “inheritance” meant, to which she answered “pat¬ rimony. ” ‘ ‘ What is patrimony ?” ‘ ‘ Something left by a father. ” “ What would you call it if left by your mother ?’’ “ Matrimony,” was the reply. While we are giving our “calico” so much credit, we must not neglect the progress that the boys are making. The same English professor asked one of the boys to give the ancient as well as the modern meaning of handsome, and the answer was that it formerly meant to be clever with the hands, but that it now means a carriage. Looking back from the earliest days of the College to the present time, it will be readily seen that those who have achieved the highest success began their career among the “Preps.” There they received the training which stood them in such good stead in later years. Now, gentle reader, think not that we boast. Oh, no ! we don’t know how to boast ! Historian. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Pag e 47 Eumenean Literary Society.

Page 48 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES History of Eumenean Literary Society FEW weeks after the return to scholastic halls, after the hubbub and excitement of old members’ returns, and arrivals of the new, had to a certain extent subsided, there appeared a flaming notice posted on the landing of the girls’ stairway, announcing an important meeting of the Eumenean Literary Society. This document also stated that there would be an election of officers, this being the first meeting of the present term. Many would-be members, arriving before the stated hour, beguiled the time by dancing, accompanied by excited conversation, thereby calling down (or rather up) to them the wrath of the harassed Math, teacher, who was struggling with an afternoon class in the room below. At last the meeting was called to order, but hardly could we sav punctually, since it was no less than fifteen minutes after the hour appointed. However, once begun, the business of election was carried through quite expeditiously. There were the usual committees and et ceteras to be appointed by the new President, and then came the motion for adjournment, which was unanimously decided upon. During the weeks that followed the meetings took place regularly and the society flourished. Its prosperity, however, was almost its ruin; since the faculty, desiring that all should share its benefits, issued a decree com¬ manding all those who occupied desks on the west side of the dividing line of the Study Hall, to join this Society. Now, when all the “Preps, " in obedience to this decree, had joined, interest began to lessen, and meetings became long and dull on account of the difference of opinion and rivalry between Collegiates and “Preps. " This condition of things having become so injurious to the welfare of the organization, a body of influential members went to the President, and laying the matter before him, begged for redress. After due deliberation, the faculty decided to grant the request that two societies be formed. This being accomplished, and the new bodies organized, the old time prosperity returned.

Page so History of the Union Literary Society £tt he first historian of the Union Literary requested all future historians, upon whom his mantle should fall, not to fail to recount that first year; for everything has a small beginning, but behold, what a great deal a little thing may grow to be. So the Union Literary, starting from the amalgamation of two other societies with twenty-three members, has grown until now its membership has nearly doubled what it was that first year. The interest had weakened somewhat until, at the beginning of the present session, on account of a regulation of the Faculty, a number of new members were received. This gave a lot of new crude material from which to raise a newer and better society. Sharp and bitter have been the discussions and conflicts waged in the meeting, so sharp indeed that it almost seemed that some of the disputants must come to blows. Man after man has risen upon the rostrum and made feeble attempts to soar to a high pitch of eloquence, or attempted to overthrow, with sharp and scathing terms, his opponent in a debate, only to be mercilessly torn to pieces by the harsh, unfeeling critic. Accusations and anathemas have been hurled at one another until the very walls rang with the cry of the sweet young voices. But oh! the delight of these unfortunates, when a critic must at length take his turn. With what pleasure does his fellow critics fall upon him “with tooth and toenail?” With what cries of delight is each criticism greeted? Like those of the “wild Indians ' ' of the Study Hall when a The Eumenean has since branched off into the two present girls’ societies.— Eds. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES poor monitor is reproved for some slight breach of conduct. Many amendments to the poor constitution have been handed in this year, and sharp has been the discussion and close has been the votes over some change in that venerable document. “Wirepulling " is not the name for what has been done to push through or defeat some motions. Open bribery and threats are in common use. It is no uncommon thing to see a wise Sophomore or an aspiring |unior attempt to hold a man down to keep him from rising to cast his vote. But let it be said that all this is done secretly and without the notice of the President. But oh, glory of glories, the elections! How great the canvassing and how close the race for office, from that of the distinguished President to that of the lowly Sergeant-at-arms, especially for the latter. At the last election four bosom friends so far forgot their friendship as to run against each other for this office and there was great rejoicing among his friends when the successful candidate was elected. Not satisfied with exhibiting ourselves to one another and before the casual visitors, we must needs “make fools of ourselves before a larger audience. So on the night of February 22nd we displayed our minute powers and feeble eloquence before a large and select audience. We were co-partners with the Eumaneans in this, and about equally shared the laurels, for although they had the greater number of pieces on the programme, what we lacked in number we made up in quality. But enough of such things 1 Away with them ! And I leave it to the future historian to recount more fully the glory and grandeur of the Union Lit. Historian.

HUNTER GEORGE MEMBERS ‘ ‘ JIMMIE ” “ DEATH ” “ GRAVE ’ ’ “ SUI GENERIS ” “ SHORTY” ' I ' HIS club was formed in the early spring of 1902 by - ■ certain gentlemen dwelling at “Scotia.” At first it consisted of Pope (who was chief ruler, his most impor¬ tant power being that he could annul all marriages); President (who usually presided and called meetings of the club); Vice-President (whose powers were nominal, mainly); Treasurer (who had nothing to treasure); and QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Secretary (who was elected “just so”). It was agreed that the meetings should be held at midnight, by the dim mysterious light of the lamp turned low, and in the third story of old “Scotia.” For a while the club seemed to be flourishing, and its members waxed eloquent in speeches against the fair sex, and man’s happiness when alone. But what a sad thing it is when ’tis discovered that, under a pretense of conformity to club rules, there is direct violation of its laws! The first and foremost rule was that any one who communicated in any way with the opposite sex was to be excommunicated. One stormy night when the wind shook old “Scotia” till she trembled to her very foundation, there was a meeting called at the request of a member, who said he had a very important matter to lay before the club. When called upon for a speech, he said that he had seen the Pope with a letter of pale tinted paper. That he held this letter to the nose of some one, telling him to smell how sweet it was, but that it wasn’t half as sweet as she who wrote it! Then there was a storm within equalled only by that without—and the Pope lost his office. At this same meeting the Pope brought accusations against the President of having been “calicoing” not once, but often, which accusation could not be denied. ’Twas now discovered that every one of them had com¬ municated in some way with the despised sex; and so, ’mid great confusion and shame, the Bachelor’s Club. was disbanded.

(Enormous Man Hater) Page 59 The exact date of the founding of this club is lost in the mists of antiquity, but there is no doubt that the institution has long flourished. We have had many famous members, one of the greatest of them the good “Queen Bess,” whose great ability in ruling men was largely due to her being an active member of this organization. One of our principal objects is the suppression of that malady, Love, which has been termed “an insane desire on the part of one man to support another man ' s daughter.” This disease has from the earliest time caused an immense and incalculable amount of trouble. For Helen, Troy was burned; for Cleopatra, a brave man turned traitor to his country. Then we know, too, when a certain one of our professors does not receive his expected visit from the postman, that we have an awfully hard time. Even our editors have lost a passably good story, that they dared not accept for fear some readers might recognize the hero and heroine as acquaintances. So the long and the short of our convictions may be best expressed in the motto which we have unanimously adopted: “Where singleness is bliss, tis folly to be wives. ” Page 6o Q U P S A A ' D QUIBBLES Colors: Two shades of Red (Crimson and Scarlet).

Hard they have struggled in well fought games Their college’s honor to save, On many a field so dearly won Their every power they gave. That their team work was good, we can easily prove, If now that proven must be, For never a college was able to score ' Gainst this team of old F. C. On ‘‘tackles back,” their favorite play, They never failed to gain, And on their honor in “playing ball” They’ve never had a stain. And though never yet they’ve “stood twixt the posts,” Like sheep that have strayed from the fold; They ' ve run up a score of seven score and nine, By pushing right on to the goal. They deserve to be praised, these men of renown, Who have fought where hard fighting must be, So give them the praises they’ve so honestly gained; Here’s to them! One! Two! Three! Rip! Rah! Rah! Rip!

There’s Miller, the center, a fine old boy, Whom Marks and Wellford guard, In danger they ' re always by his side, Although the game be hard. Osbourne and Knox are the tackles we claim, On them we can always depend. While in Boyle and Brent no fault can be found, Each holding the place of an end. Our backs are the same as all other teams’ backs- A quarter, two halves and a full; We strike on the tackles and then on the ends, And often through center we pull. To Gammon, our captain, all honor belongs, Who played left half so well, And Shackleford, the other half, Whose work will ever tell. Now Rosebro, the quarter, and George, the full, Are little but loud, you know; Each does his share in the play, They cannot be classed as slow. Then here’s to the grand old foot ball team Great is the record they hold; May they ever strive to do what they can To uphold the scarlet and gold. J. H. G., ’03.

Page 82 College [A Reyei When the burnished gates of heaven In the golden west we see, When the gloaming of the evening, Casts its shade o’er vale and tree; When October’s jeweled frost Crowns the forest leaves with gold, And the robins to their southland Homeward tlv from winter’s cold, Then our thoughts are prone to wonder Back again to days of yore, When we waved farewell to mother, To return to school once more. College days!—how long we cherish Memory of them ’neath our breast! Held fore’er in sacred keeping, Hays of all our life the best— There we formed our youthful friendships, Ties we never shall forget, Made beneath the trees, magnolias, When the grass with dew is wet; Then we vowed to one another That as long as life should last, Not a shadow of suspicion On our friendship should be cast. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Days College days! When play and study Of our lives took each a share, And tomorrow’s recitations Was the greatest of our care; Then we puzzled over Virgil, Over Greek and English too, And our hearts were always lighter With our mathematics through; There our characters were builded In that dear old College Hall, Where they taught us Truth and Honor Must be master over all. But those College days are over, And in mem’ry only last; They are drifting far behind us, They are written on the past, But they could not last forever, Brightest suns must sometimes set, Sweetest days of life have vanished; Shall our mem’ry e’er forget? For our last commencement’s over, We have gone our separate ways, We have bid farewell to those Dear old, happv, college days. L. P. R. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Page 83 T was Saturday night, and Bobbie sat on the front door step with his Steady, who according to custom had brought out a Few things which delight the inner man. After disposing of his fifth saucer of ice cream, along with a Little cake, he bade Her the Usual moon¬ light farewell, and departed, for it was eleven-thirty, and he would have only a short time in which to prepare his Greek, Latin, Math, English and Physics for Monday. But Bobbie never allowed the Lesson Question to Bother him; he was fortunate in Believing that he owned more than his Share of brains, and lessons went easy. In fact, Bobbie put himself down as a very accomplished Fellow; he could Play Ball, rush a Girl, he knew how to tie a Necktie, he could rattle the chin music—even when no one was listening—he could chew, smoke, and use a few Big words that didn’t mean anything in Particular, and, what was more to the Point, he could make Some of the Professors think he knew something about his lesson. We will state briefly of her that she was neither blonde nor brunette, nor what the girls call Really Pretty, but she was the Sort of a Girl the Boys all call Fetching. She did not run with the Common Crowd, but to quote Rudyard, was “ ’Sclu- sively” the Pick of the flock. Now, Bobbie’s head was large, some, because he thought he had Her on his String, and it was on the Strength of this Belief that Bobbie had bet the Other fellows a quarter’s worth of two-fers against her accepting any one’s invitation to the Annual Banquet before his Bid had come in. This sounded Big and did not pull him too Hard. This Banquet was Something More, and was always the occasion for an assemblage of the Madding Crowd, for the Purpose of Merriment, and to Eat a Little. Great was the rivalry among the Sports as to who should take Some Girls. So Bobbie sent in his bid along with the other fellows’, and waited Patiently a Favorable reply. But an hour crept away, and no Reply came. Bobbie began to feel Shaky. A whole day passed, and Bobbie commenced to Shuttle his Slim stock of Ready Money. Caesar’s Ghost! what if she had Ditched him for the Other Pag e 84 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES A Fable of College Life Fellow! But why think of the Impossible—there were no Other-there were only Two Flies in the Honey. Just then a note of the Gushing kind was brought to him with the Consoling news that, though Dreadfully sorry, she had Just made a Date with the Other fellow. And the Other Fellow Kindly Dropped in to Tell him about it. Well, a quarter wasn’t so Many, and he never allowed the Money question to bother him, But-. The Banquet night came, the Madding crowd came; Rations and Fun were there in Plain Sight, so were She and the Other Fellow, but Bobbie—where was Bobbie? C. H. M., ’02. TO ALICE Dear little girl with dreamy eyes A deeper blue than summer skies, I love thee more than any one Was ever loved beneath the sun. If I could only tell mv love, My constancy to thee could prove, And could but know if you love me, Of mortals I’d the happiest be. But words, my darling, fail to tell The love that you must know so well, So give to me thy trusting heart And say that we need never part. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Page 85 Dreaming I sit and gaze in the fire, In the depths of its ruddy glow, And like the flickering shadows Strange fancies come and go, ’Till there rises up from the embers A spirit in flame all bright, Which seems to hover near me And dazzles me with its light. And again I look about me And the walls have faded away, And I am left with the spirit In a maze of mystic gray. But while I yet am gazing There comes a rift in the gloom, A glory shines around me, And the scent of flowers in bloom Is wafted o’er the plains That stretch so far away, That they seem to have no bounds Save the wall of mystic gray. But the spirit goes before me, And beckons me with his hand, And I must follow after— Obey his least command. And now w T e reach a hill top, And I look on the plain below All alive with thousands of mortals Ever hastening to and fro, As if some lost thing searching. Then I turned me to my guide, My face with wonder glowing; Then spake he thus, and sighed— “This throng that wanders up and down With eager searching glances, Are mortals who in youth, Neglected all the chances That came in varied forms; Now ’tis their awful doom To wander through this valley O’ershadowed each mind with gloom, So that they see no beauty, And know one thing alone— The opportunities let pass, The things they should have done.” The spirit fails to speak— My vision fades away— And I start up from my chair Resolved henceforth each day I shall attempt to grasp Each chance of doing good, To hear on the Great Day “She hath done what e’er she could.” S. T. L., ’02. Page 86 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES ■ MY LOVE You ask me to think of you sometimes When you have gone far away, And we are no longer children, And life has more work and less play. You beg me as onward I journey In the rugged pathway of life, When there comes an hour of gladness, A pause in the battle’s strife, That backward I memory turn To the happy hours spent with thee, Long years ago together, From cares and sorrows free. But dear heart, you know not, As you made this request of me, The depth of love that’s in my heart, And my endless thinking of thee. If you had asked, my darling, To try not to think often of you, Then would you have demanded A thing I could not do. For ever of you I am thinking With a love none ever can know, For it is far greater, my dearest Than was ever high Heaven below. S. T. L., ’02 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Page 87 E was a naturalist; she was a butterfly. He had come to the Beach to study butterfly life; she had come to be one of the butterflies. He had singled her out from among the rest for special study; she had set her mind to lead him a chase. The Beach was in the wild delirium which comes with the realization that soon all will be over. But a little while and grim life would shake off the bright dream and awake once more for the realities of another season. Along the wide sands they strolled; he intent upon the capture; she rapt in the excitement of elusiveness. “No, I can’t give you that.” “Why? Let it be a souvenir, a sw r eet token of you.” “A very dear friend gave it. No, I can’t part with it.” “Is your friend she from whom you just parted?” “Oh, no! you have the sex wrong.” He drew back in rigid coldness. Breezes from off the ice fields of the far North lent themselves to his words: “But don’t you think you should have told me before of this other fellow?” A light beamed in her merry eyes. “Why, I didn’t think you would care, besides, I thought you knew.” “How should I know?” “I thought I had told you.” A look of bewilderment: “You have told me nothing except that-that I was the only-well-” “But-” “You didn’t make any exceptions then.” “I know, but everyone knows this.” “I did not, and you should have told me.” She turned away to hide the twinkle that would come. He raised the net, and gazed abstractedly at it, as the butterfly took to its wings and flew away. It was all over. Frost had come to put new life into limp humanity. Novels, cameras, bathing suits and sunshades were packed away, along with memories bitter-sweet. And the Beach was deserted. The erstwhile comatose city throbbed once more under the stimulus of the return flow of life. A dainty note, redolent of violets, familiar with its long drawn out words, two to the line, came one morning to the naturalist: “How foolish of you, you old Goosey, to get mad with me down at the Beach; I am awfully sorry; won’t you forgive me? I didn’t know I hadn’t told you I have a brother; and he’s so nice about giving me pretty things. Do you want that pin now?’ ’ He again took up his net, and went to chase butterflies. A parlor in Highlife street. A lamp turned real low. Cushions, foot stools, luxurious chairs. A bright little fire in a polished grate. She sat gazing upon the flickering flame as if all absorbed in its mysteries; he sat gazing upon her face as if lost in the Page 88 The Aspen Leaf mysteries of the woman’s heart beneath the face. “Then why did you write this note?” One quick glance she gave from the fire to his hand; one quick move she made from his hand toward the fire; and the note was feeding the flame. “Now I never wrote you any note!” “But why did you throw my note into the fire?” “Because I wanted to.” “I asked you why you threw my note into the fire.” “Yes, and I have told you why.” ‘ ‘You have told me nothing except ‘because you wanted to. ’ ” “Isn’t that reason enough for you—it was enough for me.” “If you will tell me why you wanted to.” “Because I did, that’s all ” “That reason won’t do.” He became silent; she didn’t break his silence. A seeming eternity passed. The little flame shot up, unconscious of its part in the scene, fluttered and died away in hunger for further food. The diminutive gold and diamond timepiece on the tall white mantle ticked away in rhythmical sweetness, all unconscious that it alone broke the silence. The quarter-hour sounded its silver note; the half-hour marked its close by another chime; the three-quarters passed with one more sweet reminder that time was flying. His eye turned toward the little mentor, and his movement betrayed his impatience; she was exasperating patience itself. The first stroke of the hour sounded: “Must I take that as your final answer?” “Excuse me, what did you say?” “Must I take that as your final answer?” “Must you take what as my final answer?” “You wanted to ‘because you did, that’s all!”’ “Oh, I had forgotten—I was thinking about-something else. Suit yourself about that.” And he never even raised the net to see whether he had caught the butterfly. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Days passed, they seemed weeks; weeks passed, they seemed months; months passed, they seemed years. Pride, the jealous ruler, had come in and had vanished from his soul Hope, the bright angel. Within her soul a battle waged; on the one side, fear lest he might never come back; on the other, a nature to dare and a resolve to tease; and a strong alliance were these two. In her hand was the balance. Which way would she tip it? The fate of the butterfly was hanging in the balance. A dazzling sea of brilliancy, of splendor, of beauty; and the music was a veritable invitation to the dance. “Stags out,” was called, and how did it happen? The naturalist was by the side of the butterfly. “Who has the next figure?” “I have saved it for you.” Fly, butterfly! A retreat among the palms. The laugh of merriment, the alluring strains of music, the noise of the dancing, came but as echoes from another world. He had lost his tongue; over her was a strange new charm; she was irresistible demureness itself. He looked upon her and found his tongue. “Why did you throw my note into the fire?” “Haven’t- Because I wanted-” He waited; she gave a little laugh: “Haven’t you learned yet to know that a woman can give no reason for anything she does; that it is her innate privilege to do as she pleases, and her will to be accountable for nothing? Don’t you know that when I gave you my reason ‘because’ that was sufficient an answer even if it had been yourself that I threw into the fire? When will you learn to take me as I am—” QUIPS AND QUIBBLES The Aspen Leaf “Eight now—” His hands were taking hold of the butterfly. “May I serve you, sir?” He threw the net at the intruding interloper, and the butterfly started up in alarm. Christmas bells were ringing. Every heart was filled with the echoes of the glad story. Songs of joy were on every lip. Good will was the motive power which turned the wheels of Christendom. And all was merry and bright. She received a present that morning—a little cube of a box. And packed in blue velvet a sparkling gem lay, transforming the light of the one sun into ten thousand miniature sun-bursts. She stood and gazed wistfully, charmed with its splendor, the same old war in her soul. Which would win this time? The smoke of battle broke from her brow, and from those eyes shot forth once more the gleam of mischief and the excitement of the dare. He received a package the next morning—a little cube of a box, and with it a dainty note redolent of violets: “I don’t accept presents of jewelry—except from my brother. Do you remember him this time?” He cursed the whole order of butterflies. A skating rink. The air intoxicating in its very brilliancy. The ice cracking with frostiness. Nature’s bosom hid in a very net work of snow-crystals, gorgeous in unsullied white, reveling in Winter’s embrace. He was glad with the mere joy of living; she with cheeks Page 89 aglow, tell-tale spots betraying the Wind’s kiss. “Won’t you promise?” “I won’t promise any such thing—I won’t, I won’t.” “Why, that don’t mean anything—I won’t make you obey. You just say so.” “You won’t make me promise to obey! Thank you. Have you ever tried to make me do anything I didn’t want to do?’ ’ “Only once!’ ’ “But you said at Easter; Easter’s just two months off.” “I will be ready tomorrow.” “The man I’m looking for would have said ‘I am ready this moment.’ ” “I am ready this very moment.” “Oh, no, you old parrot!” “No, not a parrot, but a phonograph playing from the record of the sweetest tones ever sung. ’ ’ “My, how smoothly that comes! To how many women have you sighed that out before?” “What smoothness that possesses comes from its repetition again and again as it rings through my head as I ponder over those sweet tones. ’ ’ A slight tremor, and silence for a moment: “You frighten me. I want to go home. Take my skates off ” “You might be more gracious in making your command.” ‘ ‘Take niv skates off. ’ ’ “Won’t you say please?” “No, but I will call the attendant unless you take my skates off right now.” He stooped and unbuckled the skates. “ ‘Love, honor and obey’; yes, you will obey me. " The naturalist cleared his whole cabinet of all old specimens. All the space was needed for one beautiful new butterfly. Nature had awakened. Things were growing. Buds were swelling in excess of fullness. Flowers were putting their Page 90 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES The Aspen Leaf heads above ground with bold assurance that winter was past. Birds were mating. Blossoms lent fragrance to the moisture¬ laden air. Life was bursting forth on every hand. A church, a fairy-land of flowers; a priest, in festive robes; a gathering, exuberant with joy. The naturalist, the butterfly—which was the happier? “ ‘I pronounce you man and wife: Whom God hath joined together let not man put asunder.’ ” A couple inside a rapidly moving carriage- The naturalist looked triumphantly at the butterfly in his arms. “I have caught you at last!” The butterfly fluttered coyly as if to break loose: “Yes, but what a chase I’ve led you.” F. II. S., ’99 A PRAYED The way seemed long and dark, I struggled with the feelings in my heart Which tried to whisper to me, And I bade them from me to depart. The voice of the tempter murmured— And we know sometimes his tone is sweet— “Child, for you the battle is too hard, You can but perish in your sad defeat; Give up the struggle now for aye, Strive not for what you call the good, Make cease the conflict ’gainst the evil. Then you ' ll be happy, as you should.” Thus far I listened and tempted was, Then o ' er me poured a mighty tide Of shame for harkening thus. And yielding to the tempter at my side. And I shook my shoulders settling Beneath their load of care, And with trusting eyes looked upward, Breathing out this heartfelt prayer— “Father, I am thine own servant, Here to do Thy holy will, Look in pity now upon me, Say unto me ‘Peace, be still ' ; And my soul will loose its burden Which just now so great did seem, And ' twill pass into the distance As the memory of some dream. ' ’ Brighter seemed each thing around, And my path was plain before me, As the birds sang up above, And a great, sweet calm came o ' er me. S. T. L., ’02. Page 91 Q UIP S AND QUIBBLES Shall I compare thee to the rose, One of the loveliest flowers that blows? That nods its head with queenly air And than which there is none more fair? But on its stem there is a thorn By which my hand is deeply torn As I try to capture the lovely prize. And I listen as the south wind sighs And softly in sorrow creeps away, For he has wooed her many a day, Since from a little bud she grew Beneath the summer skies so blue; But at him smiled she in disdain As oft he came again and again. When close he came to whisper his love, As soft as the cooing of a dove, Back sprang he with a start; S. T. L., ’02. Of a sudden he felt a smart— The cruel thorn had torn his heart! And you were fairer than any flower That ever graced a lady’s bower. And joyfully you smiled when you saw my pain, But let me come again and again. And when I ventured to tell my love And hoped for rapture like that above, And thought how I ' d press you to my heart, Of a sudden I, too, felt a smart; For you answered me only with words of scorn Which were sharper than ever rose ' s thorn. Page 92 QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Past Understanding E was nervous and excited, as she sat in a ig arm chair before the open fire listening agerly for a certain step that she hoped and et dreaded to hear. The room was elegantly furnished, and lighted only by the firelight, which cast flickering shadows here and there, but fell in full splendor on the girlish form seated just before it. She was beautiful, and the firelight brought out the gold in the light brown hair, and set forth the delicate face in its exquisite charm of intelligence and purity. She was dressed simply, in a dress of soft white cassimere, having as her only ornament at her throat a heavy gold pin which reflected the light. And as she sat thus before the fire, leaning back in the chair with her white hands clasped tightly together, there came a step on the porch, then a ring at the bell, and she dared not move for fear it was not he. The door was opened and the maid came forward bearing a card on her silver waiter. The girl seized it with trembling fingers, glanced at the name, and said: “Show him in, Suzanne; but if there are any other callers, understand that I wish to see no one this evening.” He came in, a tall, dark, handsome man, with a figure that showed he had gone in for athletics at college. She arose as he entered, and extended her hand, which he took, and did she imagine it, or was it true, that he held it a moment longer than was necessary? They sat down and tried to talk; but never, not even the first time when they met, two years ago, had they found it so hard. She had fully awakened to the fact several days before that she was in love, and with him. Her heart told her that he too loved, though she feared to trust herself to believe it until she heard him say the words that she knew would be the sweetest ever spoken. They struggled on with the conversation awhile, then lapsed into silence, and he leaned back in his chair, and gazed at the girl sitting so near him. It seemed to her that his eyes burned into her very heart, and she feared that she would not be able to resist their charms, but would cast herself into his arms. Just then there came to them the sounds of music, and she arose and opened the window to listen. But the air was cold, and the music died away in the distance. She lowered the QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Past Understanding window and seated herself on the arm of an old-fashioned chair that was near the window. He stood looking at her a few minutes, then came and sat on the other arm; and, after a moment of silence, took the little white hand that rested on the back of the chair in both of his, saying tenderly, “such a soft little hand,” and raised it to his lips. She trembled with joy, yet she was silent. Page 93 ’till he slipped down into the chair and put his arm around her slender waist, and whispered, “sweetheart.’’ Then both her arms went around his neck, and he drew her down into his arms, where she nestled up close to his heart, while he told her the old new story, and their joy was past understanding. S. T. L., ’02. Page 94 After Fi ERE they come at last! ' ’ These words were spoken by a little slip of a girl in a pale blue lawn dress, and a big white garden hat trimmed with blue of the same shade. She had been walking impatiently up and down the long garden walk for the last half hour. Now as she heard the sound of wheels on the carriage drive leading up to the house, she turned quickly and ran from the garden, and down the terraces to the gate. Just then the carriage drew up, and out jumped two young men, one of whom stopped to assist a young lady to alight, while the other turned with indisguisable joy to meet the girl in blue. “Oh! I thought you would never get here, " and by this time she was kissing the girl who almost lifted her in her arms. Then the four together started up the steps to the old-fashioned country house, which was the home of Sue Lightfoot, who was to entertain there for a couple of weeks the class of 1902. “Clyde Bruce will be here on the evening train. I can ' t think of her as anybody but Clyde Bruce, though she ' s been married for more than a year now,” volun¬ Q UI P S AND QUIBBLES e Y ears teered the hostess, as they went on. “And when is old Mose coming?” questioned Gaston Boyle. “He’ll get here on a night train. ” ’Tis next morning, and the six class mates of five years before are seated in the large, old wainscoted parlor, talking of past, present and future, but mostly of past. Alfred Miller is now a newspaper reporter, and tells many amusing experiences. Five years have changed him but little, only made him more “Sui Generis” than ever. Carrington Mosely has probably changed more than any of the set; he wears a mustache and glasses, and looks very dignified, though he unbends enough to yell, “cut that out now,” to one of Miller’s stories. He has been a college professor for three years now. Clyde Bruce has married a wealthy man, and is quite a society woman, being more dignified than when she giggled at “Shorty’s” breaks in geology. Gaston Boyle has spent the past two years at Union QUIPS A X D Q UIB P L E S Page 95 After Five Years Seminary, but time has changed him but little, and he can still laugh and give his own peculiar yell. Nora Willis has been abroad to study music, and now plays even more sweetly than when she was a little girl. Sue Lightfoot has lived at home and is much the same as when she wore two plaits to college and tried to look wise and dignified over hard problems in economics. Now they have planned a boating expedition, and separate to their rooms for hats and so forth, and here we will leave them. Our Patriotic Student Piers PlougJunan on an autumn day Sat in school in bright array; His teeth were white., his eyes were blue , His lips were red of cherry hue , His cheeks were red , his socks—red too! Our country s pride , red , white and blue. Page 96 Q UIP S A N D Q UIB B L E S The Ballot Box L. H. Boyle was voted to be the thinnest man in college. “Everybody” says Addison Flournoy is the laziest. R. E. Goolrick spends most time “loafing.” F. B. Rosebro can out talk ’em all. Gammon and G. Boyle are our greatest “calico” men. The majority consider Miller the greatest smoker. Nona Harris is our best student. The question as to the most popular boy and girl is beyond our power to solve. Sue Lightfoot and Nora Willis are the most talented. Gammon received the majority of votes for the best all-around athlete. George is our best man at foot ball, and Shackleford at base ball. Burruss makes most noise and Louise Somerville best music. Holladay, Henderson and Kirkpatrick tied for the honor of biggest eater. Greatest flirt—Margaret Merchant. James Armstrong and Clyde Bruce have oftenest been pierced by Cupid’s darts. Edgar Gammon and Archie Speer are our greatest sports. Sallie Carter carried off the palm for the brightest student. Sue Lightfoot was voted the most gifted writer. The contest for best speaker was very close between F. Rosebro and G. Boyle. “Old Miller” was thought to be the best natured man. Holladay ' s face is oftenest seen at chapel. “Jimmie” Moseley is most solemn—“Sting if he aint. " The favorite style of beauty with us is the blonde. “Tic-tac” is our favorite tune. The piano is our favorite instrument. We like science best of all. Foot ball is the most popular game . The boys say R. C. Well ford, Jr., is the best looking man, but the girls say Addison Flournoy is far hand¬ somer. Wellford and Mayo Smith think most of themselves. The great majority of the college voted for Wu” Yates as largest and heaviest. QUIPS AND QUIBBLES Page 97 A Reason for Patiotism When into Dollie s eyes I gaze All filled with love so true, Of colors that I love, I swear The best of all is blue. But when I gaze on Clara dear, And on her well poised head All crowned in beauteous auburn hair, I’m sure I love the red. And when on Katherine I gaze Upon a moonlight night, And on her skin so wondrous fair, I swear I love the white. So wrapped in this uncertainty, Alas! what can I do? I’ll choose my country’s flag and love, The red, the white and the blue. R. C. T. Page 98 “Him for the studious shade kind nature formed.” — R. Goolrick and A.

Page i oo FINIS Gentle reader, we beg of you to be very charitable as you read these pages, remembering that we are still very young in the experience of life, and have never before tried to write a book. We know now how hard it is, and hope that if we ever attempt to write another, we may profit by our hard-earned experience gotten from this our first. We owe much to the wise judgment and advice of Prof. T. H. Thompson, who has been so kind in aiding us whenever he could. Thanks are due, too, to all the faculty for their kindly interest shown to us and our efforts. Editors. Q UIP S A ND Q UIB B LBS I JNO. M.

A new Colonial Romance WALLANNAH A vivid and thrilling pictyre of life in the Carolina colonies “ It is splendidly conceived,” says the New York Journal, “and full of power. The many exciting incidents and thrilling situations are deeply absorbing, commanding the undivided attention of the reader.” The Chicago Journal declares that it is an “ intensely ' interesting story of love and ro¬ mance,” though a strange story, “strange even to weirdness”; and adds: “ It is a strong book, showing the work of a writer of much more than average ability.” The New York World says; " It has the power¬ ful fascination of the unusual,” and the peo¬ ple are taking hold of it. It certainly has the one secret of success for a novel—the power to interest. It takes hold, and holds on to the end of the last chapter. Beautifully Illustrated. Beautifully Bound. Large )2mo.

I is the Annual for the Fredericksburg College of 1902. It was my father’s annual for his senior year of high school while there. He was raised in and orphanage where his mother worked and run by the Alabama Synod. This was a very special time in his life. His father had died when he was only two years. He was only about 12 years old when he went to Fredericksburg. He talked about it all his life. I happened to be in the area some years ago and was given the opportunity to be fortunate enough to tour the home that was the class room and girls dormitory and was told of the other pieces of real estate that was a part of the college. It was so good to really get to know that much of the college after hearing my father talk about it. There is a brief history in the annual. I hope that this will help someone know more about the college that was so much in the lives of so many. Sincerely, Chuiivj ij. i uhpaui iv CENTRAL RAPPAHANNOCK REGIONAL LIBRARY
