Gather- ing many ideas from their pages, we have not, however, slavishly followed them. We have gained many ideas from other college annuals ; we have occasionally had ideas of our own. We hope that you will feel that we present an Annual better than many and altogether representative of George Washington. 7 iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 W7 THE BOARD OF EDITORS 509843 To CHARLES HERBERT STOCKTON This volume is dedicated out of no mere spirit of formality G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Charles Herbert Stockton Rear Admiral, U. S. Navy (Retired) mm DMIRAL CHARLES HERBERT STOCKTON. President of the George Washington University, was born in Philadelphia and there received a private school education. At the age of sixteen he entered the Naval Academy, from which he graduated in 1865. He went into active service at once, making various important cruises and being rapidly promoted in rank. He was on duty on the Macedonian during the summer of 1864 when that vessel made the memorable pursuit of the Confederate steamers, the Florida and the Tallahassee . While lieutenant-corn mander in 1889 he cruised the Arctic from the mouth of the MacKenzie to Wrangal Land ;ii command of the 7 hetis. He was commissioned a captain in I 899, rear admiral in 1906. and was retired on October 13, 1907. Subsequently, 1908-9, he was First United States Delegate to the London Naval Conference. Our new President has also had considerable experience in educational work. He was lecturer on international law at the United States Naval War College from 1897 to 1900, and President of that institution from 1898 to 1900. In addition. President Stockton is the author of several important volumes. Among those which he has either written or edited may be mentioned “History of the United States Naval Asylum.” ” I he Laws and Usages of War: A Naval War Code,” and ”A Manual of International Law,” which has gone through two editions. It was in recognition of his work in the held of international law that the University conferred upon him the honorarv LL. D. at the 1909 commencement. 6 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. The University NE of the hopes of George Washington, from the foundation of this city as the National Capital, was the location here of a great national university. In his will wffifL he set aside a large sum of money for that purpose, and Presidents Jefferson and Madison attempted to further his hope, but Congress, doubting its authority under the Constitution to establish such a university, took no action at that time. I he first steps toward the location of a college in Washington were taken in 1819 by Luher Rice, a Baptist minister, who was struck by the manifest advantages of such a loation, and solicited contributions from all classes of people in all parts of the Union. In 1821, with the aid of President Monroe, a charter was obtained from Congress establishing “The Columbian College in the District of Columbia” for the “sole and exclusive purpose of educating youth in the English, learned and foreign languages, the liberal arts, sciences and literature,” with power to confer all degrees usually conferred in colleges, and with the provision that “persons of all religious denominations shall be capable of being elected trustees, nor shall any person, either as president, professor, tutor or pupil be refused admittance into said college or denied any privileges, immunities or advantages thereof for, on account of, his sentiments in matters of religion.” With money secured by public subscription a tract of land containing nearly fifty acres on what is now known as Columbia He ights was purchased and a college building was completed in 1822. Among the noted Americans and Britons who contributed to this fund were John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford, John C. Calhoun, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Bishop of Durham. Lord Ashburton, Sir James Mack- intosh. thirty-two Senators and Representatives, and many other distinguished people. The College was formally opened on January 9, 1822, with the Rev. William Staughlon as president, and thirty-nine students in attendance. The theological and classical departments were alone opened at this time, the law, medical, philosophical and preparatory departments being opened during the next five years, however. The first commencement of the University was held on December 13, 1824. when three men were graduated, and there were present the President of the United States, Genaral LaFayette, the Secretaries of State, War and Navy, and leading Members of both houses of Congress. From the first the number of students steadily increased, and as early as 1824 there were 1 30 students representing twenty-one of the twenty-four States. 1 his number has been increased in the past few years to a maximum of approximately 1,500 students, representing every State and Territory in the Union, as well as a dozen or more foreign countries. Mr. Rice, throughout the latter part of his life, gave all his best efforts to the 13 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. University, and before his death in 1836 he had secured for it nearly one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, some from practically every State in the Union. Later, John Withers, of Virginia, contributing from time to time, gave a total ol nearly seventy thousand dollars. Following the war Mr. W. W. Corcoran was a liberal contributor, and materially aided the work of the institution. During President Jackson s first term Congress appropriated lots worth twenty-five thousand dollars for the College and gave a like amount to Georgetown. This was the only money ever received by the institution from the Government. In 1873 the Board of Trustees was made self-perpetuating, and the name was changed from the Columbian College to the Columbian University. In 1879 it was deemed advisable to move all departments of the University into the heart of the city, and in 1884 a large building was erected at the corner of Fifteenth and FI streets and occupied by the Classical and Law departments and the Corcoran Scientific School, which had just been founded. In 1898 the School of Comparative Jurisprudence and Diplo- macy was established. Since 1902 the College, the Corcoran Scientific School, and the School of Grad- uate Studies were merged into the Department of Arts and Sciences. Under this department are now conducted the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and Mechanical Arts, the College of Political Sciences, and the I eachers College under the faculty of undergraduate studies and under the faculty of graduate studies, graduate seminary, laboratory and lectuiie courses leading to the master’s degrees, the engineering degrees, and the degrees of doctor of jurisprudence and doctor of philosophy. The other departments comprising the University are the Department of Law, the Department of Medicine, the Department of Dentistry, and the two associated colleges, the National College of Pharmacy and the College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1904 the name of the University was changed by act of Congress and the approval of the Secretary of the Interior and the Commissioner of Education to the George Washington University. In 1910, it having become more and more evident that the site occupied by the University at Fifteenth and H streets was too valuable a piece of land to be economically utilized for college purposes, the property was sold. The Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Engineering and Mechanic Arts and the Teachers College are now located in a row of six buildings on I street between Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets. The total registration this year has exceeded thirteen hundred and the faculty number? approximately two hundred. All the departments of the University are fully equipped to give thorough courses, and the opportunities for original research cannot be surpassed. In addition to the well selected University Library the student has at his command the Library of Congress, comprising more than two million volumes, and Congress has by special enactment made the various scientific libraries and collections of the Government open to him for research purposes.

U. The College of Engineering and Mechanic Arts HE College of Engineer- ing and Mechanic Arts is the logical develop- ment of the old Corcoran Scien- tific School which was added to the University in 1884. Its growth has been in response to the growing need and demand for such an institution in this community. Its ideals are those of the best engineering schools ot the country. It aims to provide for the young men resident in the District of Columbia instruction in the standard engineering courses. At this time its curriculum includes work in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, leading to the specialized degrees of bachelor of science in these subjects. Graduates of these courses may take advanced technical work under the faculty of graduate studies and receive the degree of civil engineer, electrical engineer, and mechanical engineer, respectively. It aims to give, in connection with its technical courses, instruction in the subjects of general culture and learning, a knowledge of which should be a part of the equipment of the trained man in every walk of life. Its student body is drawn from the two constituencies that must be provided for by any institution of higher learning that aims to meet the needs of Washington. It has enrolled among its students constantly increasing number of young men who give their entire time to college work, and who take the full course in four years. It also provides classes at such hours as are available for study by those who, employed in the Government service or in some other occupation, are able to give but a part of their time to study, but who have the preparation, the aptitude, and the perseverance that makes it possible to engage in gainful occupation at the same time that they are taking college courses. Since all such persons must extend their work over more years than ate required by students giving their entire time to the work, it has been found possible to arrange schedules of classes without undue repetition of courses by giving a part of the technical courses in the afternoon, and so alternating the courses assigned to the rfternoon from year to year as to provide for the needs of the students and to give i hem the subjects in proper sequence. The work done by both of these classes of students is of the highest character, and the College is proud of its student body and its alumni. I asa T was upon a bright, sunny day in September. 1907, that first we entered the doors of the old University with the distinct and heart-felt assurance that we were by far the brightest class that George Washington University had ever matriculated (we had now added that word to our youthful vocabularies and were already using it glibly and frequently). Were there not some Seniors in our history class? Was there not a graduate taking the same mathematics as ourselves? Was not a sedate, beglassed, gray-whiskered married man in our chemistry lecture course? Surely no class had ever been admitted to the University with such honors. These very facts were undoubtedly in full recognition of our phenomenal brilliancy and ability. By the time, however, that the Sophomore days had come the novelty had worn off. We no longer stood in awe of the dignified Seniors, but we were beginning to admire and respect them for the difficult road which they had traveled, and of which we our- selves were now obtaining a bird’s-eye view. We were becoming used to the gray- haired married man. the graduate, and the serious minister. We were no longer afraid to exchange notes and express differences of opinion with the professor upon the impressing and momentous subject of the weather. And then came the Junior year. Many of the brave and brilliant soldier students who had so bravely fought with those legions of books for the past two years had by this time sutcumed as they were wearily climbing the last heights to knowledge. We had left the pleasure seekers, the wanderers, and the dreamers behind and had welcomed into our midst those unfortunates who had failed to meet the requirements of the University for the preceding year. And now we have just completed our Senior year — the doorway to the future. For that we have nothing but eagerness and confidence. Some student with an innate desire for knowledge or a deep-rooted sense of pleasant associations may tell you that it is with regret that he closes the college chapter of his life; that it is with a sad heart that he leaves the old University. But make him think once more upon the situation. I fear that if the diploma now so near his grasp were withdrawn, if the degree, labored for during the past four or five years, as the case may be. were suddenly refused him, that same good student would feel a pang of disappointment go through his heart. He may not acknowledge it even to himself, but the feeling is there just the same. We have had our sorrows and our worries, we have had our pleasures and our joys, but we would not ore of us omit our college course if our lives could be lived over again. Now. we look back with a frown of worry upon our mistakes and our hardships, but when Father Time has passed his ray screen over the picture the high lights, which are the harsh ones, will disappear and we will look back over the worries at some future time — and smile. 20 G.

Bare Many of the graduates of this class can harken back to the days when they plodded to the old Van Ness Park for the engineering laboratory work, and it must be con- fessed that some of the candidates can remember further. It was with retrospective thought that we watched the demolition of the old university building on Fifteenth street, where so many companions in learning have become imbued with knowledge. Knowledge has been “rubbed into some of us, while others have “absorbed. ’’ for the class of 1911 contains some few who have spent the best portion of their lives trying to graduate, others have made records in speed. I he “Oldest Inhabitants of this class have seen professors grow gray in the service, but it must be said that the love of the university was the only in- centive to so many years of study for a few of us, we just found that there was no “royal road to knowledge. I he Engineer C lass of 1911 was formed hurriedly, for the Freshman dance was to be held in a few nights, and our class dancer had to attend to uphold the social standing of the Seniors. Not that there was only one “fusser among us. far from it, but the class contained on ly one devotee of the terpsichorean art. 1 here were offices for everybody except one, and at the earnest solicitation of Jenks, he was allowed to remain the “high private in the rear ranks of this South American Army. “Are you really going to graduate this year; you don’t mean to say that they are go- ing to let you through this year, I thought you had five more years, were some of the salu- tations with which the night studes greeted each other. There was never a happier bunch collected than the 1911 Engineers, not that they were to leave the university, but because of the fact that they were about to reach the goal of a race started many years belore. Having avoided or overcome the snares and pitfalls which have been placed in our paths by the faculty, we leave the University feeling that we have completed a h ard task, and are fitted to accomplish greater things. We will always hold dear our Alma Mater, “George Washington University. 24 — G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Senior Engineering Roy Franklin Carty Maryland Candidate B. S. in M. E.

It was in the fall of 1908 that we entered the portals of the dear old college building at Fifteenth and H streets. We had thought that the worst would be over when that much-dreaded entrance on matriculation day was an accomplished fact, but alas! — never was there a greener bunch of “Freshies.” We had not counted on what the Sophomores had in store foi us. They did their best to make our lives miserable for those first few weeks and to prevent our class elections. They succeeded fairly well in the former, but thanks to Dean Wilbur and an officer of Uncle Sam, they failed miserably in the latter under- taking. Another achievement of which we Freshmen were justly proud was our success in preventing that haughty band of upper-class men from touching our goal in the inter- class football game. It was the first time in the history of th e college that the “meek” little Freshmen had ever done such a thing. So you see we were no ordinary class to begin with. I he one consolation in being a Freshman, however, is the comforting knowledge that you will not always have to be one. Hence, the most important event in our collective career was the assumption in the title of Sophomore. Now a Sophomore is especially distinguished for two reasons — he has joyful prospects of becoming a Senior and he is not a Freshman. This is the cause of his deep-seated respect for the Senior and his lack of mercy toward the Freshman. To us fell the unpleasant duty of training the erring Freshmen in the way they should go. We did it conscientiously, but very unwillingly. And what did those who did their duty most conscientiously get for their pains? A free ride to the police stations as well as several hours enforced leisure in that hated place. Never again! We began our college career with an enrollment of 160. the largest the college bad had in the Freshman class up to that time. Many have fallen by the wayside, however. Some have dropped back to swell the ranks of the class of 1913. Others have gotten so entangled in the social whirl that they have stopped their college career. When we came back last fall the faithful numbered about sixty. We have the “quality” if not the quantity, however, and you may still expect to see us accomplish great and wondeilul things. We expect to have the best Senior class George Washington University ever graduated. Just wait until next year and see if we don’t!

But for a future Age that never ends. " — R. M. Dunbar . 29 •-•-•-•-•-•-•• ' •-•♦-•-•-•-I HROUGH all our history, to the last, the effect of the class motto is to be traced. “In union there is strength,” has been our watchword, which has guided us safely for three years over a troubled sea. 1 o some outsiders it may seem as il this maxim could be taken in several ways, some of which suggest things not wholly desirable, but evil to him who evil thinks. With the class of 1912 it has stood for good-fellow- ship, good fun and hard work, in which every one of us has stood by every other one and so far our record has not been one to be ashamed of. It is really unusual the way the old bunch has stood together for three years, VI e have lost a few good men, but the majority have hung together, and strange to say, we like each other better now than we did when we first met as timid freshmen on the brink ol our college career. Last year Walter H. Thompson left us to return home and take up work, and while by all accounts he is doing well there, his heart seems to often turn back to G. W. U. He was one of the finest fellows I have ever known, and set us all a good example, which has helped us through this year even though we only received his good influence at long range. Apparently the Rubenstein C lub learned that he had left college, for they haven’t held any more meetings at the Arlington. This year two men have risen to special prominence, Harrison and Baily, President and Treasurer, respectively, of the class. They deserve the greatest credit for the way they managed the Upper Class dance. To say they came out “ahead of the game” is to tell the whole story, for most class officers know what a pleasant sensation it is to go deep down in their pockets to make up the deficit of some poorly managed affair. Safford, of course, has been prominent as of yore, and has given us all some delight- ful Saturday afternoons at his country house when the tennis court seemed to lure us from the city. Saff is also getting to be a sort of inventor’s assistant, for he has spent nearly all his spare time making drawings of some kind of e gas engine for a certain genius in one of the government offices. Saff doesn’t think much of the invention, for Saff has run an automobile and is a practical man, but he doesn’t mind so long as he draws his pay. McCalip is a busy man this year, for he has a job with the telephone company, as he expresses it. Supposedly, he is writing some monumental work for them on “first- aid to the injured.” but then his office is right near the exchange where the operators are and— well, you all know Mac. Mac has developed a great fondness for the fire depart- ment and spends his few leisure hours picking up information at the various engine houses. His class-mates all hope to see him chief of the department some day. 30 The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. G. W. U. Junior Engineering Potbury has kept very quiet this year and has devoted his time to “sawing wood, his only relaxation being an occasional game of five hundred. The number o f A s to Pot’s credit is simply astounding, yet he wears his honors with becoming modesty and never thinks of telling “how he did it.“ Scott is the balance-wheel of the class and keeps us all down to earth. He evidently believes that the reform movement should begin at home, for he has reformed a lot of our formerly bad members. Scotty is a mighty good student, too. and I f v»l waller and more insignificant when Scotty corrects me than when Prof. Mecklin asks me a question. As to the author of this rambling paper. He is just the same old Bout and is as happy-go-lucky as ever. The only point decidedly in his favor is that he realizes what a fine bunch of fellows compose the class of “1912“ and that he owes a lot to them in all kinds of ways. Hugh G. Boutell 31 - o. w. u.

Wilson District of Columbia lAf HEN the class of 1913 first entered the old red-brick building on the corner of - Fifteenth and H streets it received a royal welcome from the professors and students of George Washington University, and notably from the class of 1912. The latter, indeed, went to considerable trouble to express a somewhat demonstrative affection for us. When we wished to elect our class officers and formulate our class policies to guide ourselves and our University through the troubled waters of life, the men of 1912, in their eagerness to catch pearls of wisdom from our lips, failed to respect our desire for privacy and gave our sergeant-at-arms a strenuous existence. Their rapture at seeing us again when we came forth must have temporarily deranged them, for their actions during the rest of the evening displayed marked eccentricities. It was not until the inter-class football game, when we defeated them by a score of 6 to 3, that they fully recovered from their dementia. I his year we had the added responsibility of chastening a somewhat unruly Fresh- man class, who, unmindful of proper precedence, presumed to hold class elections without waiting for our approval. But when they came forth from their class meeting they found a determined band of vengeful Sophs waiting on the outside, armed with weapons of chastisement. To the efficiency of our corrective measures we call the stones of Conduit load to witness, as well as the subsequent conduct of the Fresh. This good and necessary bit of work accomplished we then proceeded to elect our own class officers. On the evening of October 26, just after the 6:30 bell, we assembled in West Hall to organize in due and regular form. A short and business-like election took place in which the following officers were chosen to lead the class ol 1913 through its varying fortunes: President, Ralph Hospital; vice-president. Miss Olivia Taylor; secretary. Miss Edna Hanvey; treasurer, Louis A. Maxson; editor for The News, George W. Hodgkins; editor for The CHERRY Tree, Arthur H. Redfield. Our class is already distinguished in the various student activities of the University. In athletics Smith and Maxson are honorably upholding the track record of the class, having won distinction, especially in the indoor meet. In journalism we are represented by Miss Taylor and A. H. Redfield. both on the staff of the Ceorge Washington News. We hold the presidency of the Student Y. M. C. A. in the person of D. C. Smith. In fraternities of the University we are well represented. The class of 1913, College, has shown its college spirit amply in the way in which it took hold of the various student activities. Its members are out working for the interests of our common Alma Mater and may pride themselves upon their early start in student work. The members of the class realize, as well, the importance of their academic work, and are endeavoring by a proper cultivation of both sides of college life to achieve that well-rounded development which marks the college ideal of character. 35 SOPHOMORE CLASS The Department of Arts am» Sciences HE beginning of the college year found us no longer Freshmen (the babies , of the college), but one step higher in college life. We now walk around with a firmer step, and are not met with that much despised word “freshman, which was so often tossed at us last year. We determined from the first to have a Sophomore Engineering Class and not a joint class with the Sophs, from the college. For, in for mer years, the Sophomore class of Engineering has combined with the Sophomore class of College in organizing, making only one organized Sophomore class for the two colleges. In October we held our first meeting which was well attended. We drew up the constitution after much “jawing.” Then came the hard task of electing the officers, for we had a bunch of over forty good fellows to select from. There were great dis- cussions and many arguments before we finally elected our officers, all of whom have been a credit to the class. These officers are: President, T. J. Stockton; vice-president. D. L. Dutton; secretary, H. W. Hodgkins; treasurer, M. G. Slarrow; class editor The Nen s , R. L. Glass; class editor The CHERRY TREE, E. P. Parker, Jr. We had great sport after the meeting of the Freshman class. (I say “after. “ because the dears objected seriously to our presence at the meeting.) Just ask the Freshmtn about the scramble in the streets, the trip in the country, etc. We missed a good deal of sport with the Freshmen on account of the Freshman- Sopho.nore football game not being played this year, for we remember how many men of this class played on the Freshman team of last year which put it on the Sophs, in that most interesting and exciting game at American League Park. At one of the meetings of this class we decided to give a dance which would be entirely distinct from the annual dance of the upper classes. The officers of the class were appointed as a committee to arrange for it. This dance was called “The Engineering Students Dance,” and was held at M rs. Dyer’s on December 9. It was a great success and all of us had a msghty fine time at it. At the present time we have boned for and have gone through the ordeal of taking our mid-years. And they weren’t so bad after all. For most of ou classmates have managed to pull through them and are now well on their way in the last half of the college year. It will soon be June and our Sophomore work will be over. Then we say farewell to each other, some only for a few months, but, we regret to say, some forever. We take this opportunity to bid good-bye to those men who will leave us. and say that the members of this class wish them success wherever they may be. 37 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

On September 28, 1910, this splendid body of S students filed through the doors of the University, determined to attack the work ahead with such vigor as to insure success and to do everything possible to revive the waning school spirit. Because the several branches of the University were so dis- connected, it was generally supposed that this year’s entering class would be small, and the fact that it is larger than most of its predecessors has done much to encourage those who have the interests of the University at heart and to incite the entire student body to renewed enthusiasm. Class organization was quickly effected. Just as soon as the members had arranged their programs and started the regular routine work, a call was issued for October 2 I , to elect officers and adopt a class constitution. This meeting, held in the West Hall of the “I” street building, was well attended and enthusiastic. After the adoption of a consti- tution, the following officers were elected: President, R. M. Norris; Vice-President, Miss Elizabeth Ferguson; Secretary, Miss Jennie Armes; Treasurer, Alvin Brown; Assistant Treasurer, E. C. Trumbower, Jr.; Athletic Manager, Guy Chase; Sergeant-at-Arms, Vincent Smith; Class Editor, R. M. Moran. This, as all subsequent meetings, was conducted in a dignified, business-like manner, creditable alike to the class and school. Our class numbers many promising atheletes and we very much regret not being able to meet the Sophomores on the gridiron this year. Still more deeply do we deplore the necessity for the disbandment of the ’Varsity team, but we are encouraged to believe that conditions more favorable to atheletics will exist next year and that we shall be able to demonstrate our prowess both with the class of 1915 and that of 1913, if the latter vill do us the honor to meet us. The class gave its first dance Thanksgiving night in the big ball room of the Arling- ton Hotel, Dr. and Mrs. Monroe. Dr. and Mrs. Hodgkins, Dean and Mrs. Wilbur and Dean and Mrs. Hough kindly acting as chaperones. The ball room was tastefully dec- orated with flags and bunting — the University colors predominating — while at the uppe end of the room hung our large class banner. The program, bearing the University Seal, was unusually neat and pretty, the music was fine, and the supper good. Dancing con- tinued until one in the morning, and the whole affair was voted a great success by all who were fortunate enough to attend. Over one hundred couples were present, attesting that school spirit of which we are proud. There may have been better classes in the past and, for the success of our school, we hope the future may produce many that are larger and just as enthusiastic, but none have, nor will, be more loyal and faithful than the Class of 1914. 41 G.

WALTERS District of Columbia U. C. Wong China H. Wing- van China W. YlNG China The College of Political Sciences HE College of the Political Sciences was organ- ized as a separate College of the University in February, 1907. It is the natural outgrowth of a few post-graduate courses in international law and diplomacy, which had revealed the necessity for a more full curriculum, more broadly cultural, and more highly specialized and practical. I he foundation of the College is based on two principles: First, that there should be in at least one important city of the United States a special College of Political Sciences, whose entire curriculum should be organized with the one specific object in view, of train- ing men, at once broadly and speially, for the public service generally and for the consular and diplomatic service in particular; and, second, that the most strategic location of the United States for such a college is the National Capital, for reasons too obvious to make it necessary to state them. The courses of study extend over four years and go minutely into the theory and practice of government, international law and diplomacy, the duties of consuls, eco- nomics, transportation, banking, finance and insurance, tariff policies and commercial treaties, modern history and the modern languages. I he degrees given by the College arc bachelor of arts, master of arts, and master of diplomacy. The past year marked a change of deans in the College of the Political Sciences, Professor Henry Parker Willis succeeding Dean Howard L. McBain, who resigned to accept an appointment to the faculty of the University of Wisconsin. Standing with the leaders as an economist and publicist, the new dean is splendidly equipped for his duties, and in the short time that he has been in charge has unques- tionably proved his worth. Under his vigorous administration the influence of the College is growing and expanding steadily. G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

Teachers College was founded partly in response to the growing demand for the systematic training of teachers for their work, and also in response to the requirements of the District School Law of 1906, which provided that all applicants for positions in the public schools should pass examinations in psychology and pedagogy. 1 he College, accordingly, has a very definite aim — to provide collegiate training tor teachers. Neither the Normal School nor a general college education affords the requisite knowledge and skill for teaching in high schools. This conviction is now practically universal throughout the educational world. The normal school training is deficient on the cultural side, a college education having no specific reference to the aims and methods of the teacher’s difficult and important office is equally deficient on the sid ' ’ of practical knowledge. Even for teaching in the grades, professional training beyond that offered in normal schools is now regarded as very desirable. It is to supply these deficiencies of the older forms of preparation for teaching that Teachers Colleges, Schools of Education, and University Departments of Education have in the last decade or two been established all over the United States, until there are at present two hundred or more such institutions. I heir aim is to combine a well-balanced college education, sufficiently specialized as to the subjects to be taught, with definite education in the theoretical and practical problems confronting the teacher. In the progress of human socety no public function is more important than that of education; and in the work of education no factor is more important than the efficiency of the teacher. Contributing to that efficiency are the moral character of the teacher, his knowledge, and his skill. The last of these was formerly left to take care of itself. Teachers Colleges are desisred to provide, as a part of a college education, this indis- pensable condition of the highest success. 32 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

The Law Department m HE LAW SCHOOL was first organized in February, 1826, with the Hon William Ifflbfll Cranch, Chief Justice of the Circuit Court of the United States, at its head. It early became involved in financial difficulties, however, and was discontinued until 1865, when its courses were resumed in the Columbian Law Building on Fifth street, where it remained until 1884. Counting from its reestablishment, it is the oldest law school in Washington, and it was the first school in the country to establish a post-graduate course leading to the degree of Master of Laws. Formerly the school was conducted on the night-school plan, but since 1902 the classes have been held in the early morning and late afternoon so as to give an opportunity both to those able to give their full time to the work and to those employed during the day. In 1 899 a fine law building was erected on FI street next the college building. When the sale of that property in 1910 necessitated a move, the two upper floors of the new Masonic Temple were secured, and the Law Department is now housed there in very comfortable quarters. The course for the degree of Bachelor of Laws was increased in 1 898 to three years of twelve hours each. In 1877 a year of graduate work, leading to the degree of Master of Laws, was added, and in 1905 a special graduate course of three years, leading to the degree of Doctor of Jurisprudence, was established. A special course in Patent Law w ' as added in 1895. Among the former members of the faculty may be found many men of national distinction, including Mr. Justice Strong. Mr. Justice Harlan. Mr. Justice Brewer, all of the Supreme Court of the United States: the Hon. William Cranch. Hon. Caleb Cushing. George Ticknor Curtis. Hon. John W. Foster, and the Hon. Hannis Taylor. Prominent on the faculty at present may be mentioned Judge Stanton J. Peele, of the Court of Claims: Judge Wendell Phillips Stafford. Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia: James Brown Scott, member of The Hague Confer- ence Committee: E. C. Brandenburg, author of Brandenburg on Bankruptcy, and Dean E. C. Lorenzen, author of a case book on the Conflict of Law. 58 Department of Law Charles H. Stockton, LL. D President of the University Ernest G. LoRENZEN, Ph. B., LL. B.. J. U.

State University of Iowa lAf RI I E a history of the class of 1911 in one volume — impossible? A Ridpath, a Bancroft, or a Roosevelt might have squeezed into ten or fifteen volumes, with the use of a shoe-horn, but less — never. To do more here than give a mere epitome would be. therefore, like attempting to reduce a quart can of condensed milk to fit a capsule, or like trying to acquire a partial knowledge of future interests or to explain the Renvoi theory in one life time. But what’s the use anyhow? In the last analysis it all comes down to the individual question. “Do I get my degree?” It is not a generally recorded historic fact, but never- theless true, that our much-discussed friend Mr. Bacon-Shakespeare found the inspira- tion foi his eternal query. “To be (in on the commencement) or not to be. that ' s the question. “ while facing the final exams of his law course. 1 he record o f the 1911 class has been of pre-eminent historic value throughout. It has been unquestionably the most brilliant class ever graduated from the University. There have been almost numerous instances in which at least three of its members have been prepared for the same recitation, and. sometimes, a Prof, could tell the subject ol its examination papers without first looking to the front for the title. It has shown itself to be the real " class " — classy class. It became the stern duty of the class to break in a new Dean— -Dean Lorenzen— and. as usual, the work was well done — for reference see Dean Lorenzen, who shows all the symptoms of being well “broke.” in every sense of the word. Ditto as to Prof. Frazer, who has so ably led us through the maze of Property III. The Law School, com templating a change of location for years, and waiting until it had a graduating class worthy to impart the requisite dignity to its new habitation, thrust that responsibility on 1911 with all confidence — not misplaced as shown by results — and 1911 has been re- warded for faithful performance by being the first class graduated from the School’s beautiful quarters in the New Masonic Temple. Its history has been replete with smokers banquets, dances, rows, etc., so that to attempt to isolate single events for particular men- tion and briefly describe them would impoverish the Enghsh-condensing ability of a short- hand writer. With its thirst for knowledge, its gluttonous craving for work, and its superhuman ability (almost uncanny clairvoyance) to “get by” exams, the class has convinced all that its future history will be read in the future history of the country and of the world, and traced in the brilliant careers of the leading lights of the times, as it will be there carved by the individual members of the " class " of 1911. 62 G.

DULLES President St. Clair Smith Vice-President H. M. HuMASON Secretary and Treasurer HE Junior Law Class has led rather an uneventful life this year, distinguishing itself mainly in its studious habits and in leading the elevator rush at 6:30. The first meeting of the class was held in the latter Dart of October when the officers named above were elected. They have shown themselves worthy leaders and have fully merited the confidence reposed in them by the class. In December a smoker was held at Endres which was a “howling” success. A large majority of the class was present and enjoyed the eats, drinks, smokes and speeches very much. Dean Lorenzen made an inspiriting address on the future of the school and Professors Stafford, Clephane, Mumma and Frazier added to the gaiety of the occasion with stories and personal experiences. Their example proved contagious and several members of the class were moved to oratory, Humason, Coulson, Bond, and numerous others rose to the occasion and delivered extemporaneous addresses. Finally, all eatables and drinkables having been consumed, the class went home filled with good cheer. The next event of importance was the mid-year exams. Through this ordeal the class passed with flying colors and assassinated the “absque hoc” without the slightest com- punction, the “ 1 rust Fund Theory” and “Ultra Vires” proved a stone wall and many fell by the wayside, but since the faculty has taken “Judicial Notice” of the superior abilities of the class, the majority pulled through. After passing through these ordeals the future can hold no terrors for such a class, and so, with no thought of June exams, with carefree hearts we cheerfully join the 6.30 rush, winning our way through hordes of resisting freshmen, past the protesting custodian, to repose at last triumphantly in the recesses of the vehicle which connects us with home and dinner. a A J U X G.

And there was much drinking: And care and travail were forgotten. 39 And the Elders, even the Dean and diverse others, rose up and girded their loins and proclaimed unto the barristers sage counsel ; 40. And there was great acclamation; 41. And the Class of 1913 lifted up it- voice and sang; 42. And there was a sound of revelry bv night. Of its greatness 43. And the greatness of the Class of 1913 shall be sung in the land; 44 - And its renown shall go forth among the nations, 45 Even throughout the length and breadth of the universe and under the four corners of heaven ; 46. And it shall prevail among men. 47 : Rejoice. Oh Law School, for the glory of he Class is still with you; 48. And it shall not depart until the ful- ness of time, 49. Even in the Year 1913. 50. And until then it shall shed great lustre on the Cniversitat ; 51. And even unto the fourth generation shall its deeds be talked of ; 52. And the Class shall ever wax in the favor of the Gods; 53. And it shall tread the paths of peace and righteousness ; 54. And it shall fulfil the words of the Seer who of old foretold it- greatness ; 55. And the profit of the world shall be great thereby.

W. U.” — but if an indictment were brought we could introduce the best testimony and prove our case “beyond a reasonable doubt. “ Well, we had to organize; were pushed to it just as the class officers were, and we are promising ourselves several banquets and rousing smokers, where we hope to have the Faculty, the Dean, and Beer. However, before indulging in the above, it has been suggested that we buy several appropriate mottoes like “God Bless Our Home,” “Don’t Spit On the Floor, ' etc. and these, together with some curios, would complete our “chattels; our “real property, ' being in the nature of an “estate tail,” is not assignable. Since knowing the majority of the faculty, we of the first year have been wondering •f it is possible for any of them to forget the awful warnings laid down in the Law ' of Domestic Relations, and if they would by any chance and according to the law ' of con- version make one and one into one, for never a sign has yet appeared of a femme sole or covert or otherwise, nor a ride on the willowy w ' ave of the matrimonial sea “for theirs.’ “Our brightest” must have been thinking of this when he said that a bailment was the “act of removing water from a boat to keep the femme soles of your chose in action from becoming liquidated.” Though what Professor Ernest thought was not so clear when he heard for the first time that “Benefit of Clergy” was the last sad rite of the church administered to one who had “hooked” a sign, presumably that of “Keep Off the Grass.” Yet, it was clear as to what Professor Mumma thought of the ghost of Lord Mansfield “dissenting” to the plea of “Moral Consideration” in 1823. So the struggle up the slippery steep to win the prize we would attain — the elusive diploma — goes on. However, through it all, there is one who presides and strives day in and day out, doubtless at times hopeless of results, but evidently never despairing, and when our “legal lights” are lit. with whatever success that may come to us. we will ascribe to him a large share in it and thank him w ' ho has labored with heart and brain for the good and betterment of the followers of a true profession — gentlemen — the Dean. 83 C.

The Department of Medicine + HE MEDICAL DEPART MEN 1 of the George Washington University was _ 1 the seventeenth to be established in the United States. It was established in 1825, almost with the College itself. Originally, like all other medical schools at that time, the course was but two years of five months each. It has been gradually lengthened during the intervening years until now it covers four years of eight months each. The University Hospital was made a part of the department in 1898, which greatly increased the facilities for actual practical work as well as class room work. The Medical Department has been for several years a member of the Association of American Medical Colleges, and its students and graduates have all the advantages arising from such membership. The school is also one of the seventy acceptable medical schools of the Medical Association and one of the very few medical schools in the United States accredited in full by the Medical Examining Board of England. I he teaching in the first two years is largely laboratory instruction, and in the last two is mainly clinical. I he Medical Building was erected in 1902 for the purpose and is modern in design and construction. The laboratories are well equipped, the library is large and compre- hensive, and the pathological museum contains a great many valuable and interesting specimens. VI ashington opens to the student of medicine the unrivalled resources of the Library of Congress and of the Surgeon-General’s Library, which latter is the most complete in the world. — 86 MEDICAL PROFESSORS G.

D Instructor in Pathology and Bacteriology The University Hospital HE HOSPI TAL is an integral part of the educational system of the University. All the professors teaching clinical branches have been made chiefs of their |£| clinics in the hospital, thus making the clinical facilities of the hospital directly available for teaching. The total capacity of the hospital is one hundred and twenty-five with forty rooms for private cases. Over thirteen per cent of the work done by the hospital is on charity cases for which no renumeration is received whatever. 90 S THE goal becomes nearer and nearer, all that is left behind (especially - anatomy and chemistry) becomes more and more indistinct. The Freshman W8S5 days! How far do they seem to have receded into the past’s advancing gloom. It is almost impossible to force one to believe that we staid, dignified, awe-inspiring Seniors but four years ago were a motley tribe of uncouth, clamorous, and irreverent F reshmen ! And yet so much has been accomplished during this comparatively short period or time. Anatomy, histology, physiology and chemistry revealed to us in detail that most per- fect piece of machinery in existence — the human body; bacteriology, pathology and diag- nosis have made us familiar with our enemy — the disease — and the changes it works in our bodies and the means of detecting and identifying them, while the rest of the subjects had for their object the last and the grandest problem of medicine — the treatment of the disease. The past two years have seen the most radical changes the school has ever known. It is no exaggeration to say that the teaching is a hundred per cent better today than it was two years ago. Not only do we have to repeat such subjects as Obstetrics, Gyneco. ogy and Tractures and be re-examined in them, but our clinical facilities have been greatly extended, until today we are “on the go” every day from 8 o’clock in the morning until half past 6 o’clock in the evening, with hardly an hour or two “swinging.” To live in an era of reform and innovation may be interesting; it may break the monotony of one’s ex- istence, but it also breaks one’s anatomy, and it is during such periods that hardships and difficulties are multiplied. But while we are, at times, prone to be sulky and “kicking” about the new “hardships,” we are, nevertheless, fully aware of the benefits we are de- riving from them. Last, but not least, must be mentioned the changes in the Medical Building and Hospital- — those of us who remember their looks two years ago and look at them today are convinced of the fact that “a little bit of paint,” combined with a goodly dose of washing powder and brush, will work wonders not only in chorus girls but also in buildings. Well, a few more efforts, and we shall soon line-up for the procession at the Belasco (ah, every dog has his day!), and then will come the day of our dispersion; but wherever we land, and whatever becomes of us. we shall always cherish in our hearts the memory of our Alma Mater, the dear old George Washington University, and many a man, tired and worn out after a hard day’s work, sitting in the warm glow of the light, will let his thoughts stray back to the scenes of college days, and pray. “Backward, roll backward, oh Time in your flight.” Now, boys, up! One and all: Here is to our school, our teacher friends who have spared neither time nor effort in teaching us the noblest of all arts- — the healing art! May theirs be long lives and happy ones, and may many generations profit by their wisdom, patience and kindness as we have. 91 - G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Senior Medical •I Arne O.

And at first we were sore perplexed in body and spirit, for the city was unknown to us, and we knew not the inhabitants and the rulers thereof. Now it came to pass in the first year and the ninth month and the twenty-fifth day of the month that Dean Phillips assembled us together in an upper room and told us of a goodly land, a land flowing with milk and honey, which was not a great way off, and that we were well able to go up and possess it. But others, just ahead of us, said we were not able to possess it; that it would take at least five years of bondage and toil; so there were some dissensions among us. But as yet we had no leader. Then the band of twenty-seven joined themselves together and said. “Give us a leader to reign over us as the other tribes have. So one called Garlock was made leader, and reigned over us for one year. In the fifth year of Dean Phillips’ reign the news went forth that we were to have a new King. For many days we were sore troubled for fear that we should get a new ruler, who would deal bitterly with us. Again we were without a leader, for during our first year’s struggle in the wilderness fourteen of our original followers forsook us and fled, and among them our leader, Garlock. However, two others who had come a day’s journey — one from the North, the other from the South — seeing our just works, and being of the same mind and purpose, joined with us. The cry for a leader again went up, and messengers were sent into all parts of the land, and as they were commanded the people were brought together, and this time Charles, the son of Fisher, was chosen to be our leader. Now, during the first year of the reign of Dean Borden, Dean Phillips having seen fit to letire to private practice, there was uneasiness and trouble in the land. Old records were hunted up, examinations added, new courses introduced, and higher stand- ards required. Some said we will not have this new King rule over us, so they forsook us. But those of us who were left joined ourselves together and selected a new leader, one tall of stature and able to go before our new Ruler and to make intercessions for us, and the name of this new leader was Dyer, and he did that which was right in the sight of all the people. When we were come into the land for the fourth time we were once more gathered together for the purpose of selecting a leader. This time was brought into our midst a man who is not slow of speech. He was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful counte- 97 UlllUIMBBUUMI G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Fourth Year Medical 4 nance, and goodly to look upon, and they did set him in our midst to rule over us. And the name of this, our leader, was Everett Monroe Ellison. He went in and out before us, and his reign was a goodly one. and under him we grew and waxed great. Now there is in the land a man (and there are others of the same tribe) whose name is Ruffin, a goodly man, and a man who has told us many wonderful things. But by and by, when we are ready to go up and possess the land, we must first give evidence to this man of the mighty works that we can do. And when we are come unto him. behold, he is so powerful that some of us may not be able to stand before him. I hose who are able to stand in his presence will go on their way rejoicing, but those who have not fought a good fight and finished the course will go their way with sadness. 4 - Class Roll William Otis Bailey, t X Gilbert Roscoe Brewer Class Vice-President. 19 I 0-1 I Roy Edgar Burnett.

Landis, and Rollings wake up we shall venture to say that this class reminds us of a railroad, because it has so many sleepers. But be that as it may. Surgical Pathology Sowers our dispositions so that we couldn’t stand Dietatics if we didn’t all get Nickels when we go. Dr. Cram says he knows of a case that was just as bad as this, but we can’t believe it. In passing, it should be mentioned that Dr. Cram is the only man in the class who lives up to his name. The other day Munson tried to explain some electro-therapeutics to the lesser lights in the class, but met with such resistance that he was shunted off to R street, where he’s been sparking ever since. Oh, you live wire! But Munson really is bright. No. we didn ' t say “light,” for we’re saving that to describe Oscar’s hair. He says all his troubles are little ones, and we have thought that way ourselves, but we realize that they are getting bigger. If you don’t believe it, see King’s Manual. A1 told the prof that the patient became rapidly “emancipated.” Which reminds us that the 17th of March is really here. Of course, we always have March with us, except when Marion relieves him. Speaking of the I 7th, Billy Fitz is really picking up flesh, though you wouldn t think it. We saw him the other day in the Quick and Dirty picking up a ham sandwich. “What meaneth this lowing of cattle and bleating of sheep in mine ears?” Oh, yes; we see. It’s just George Washington Calver publishing the general orders for the day to the benighted Sophomores. We don’t know why it is. but we are reminded of a story that must be eliminated at this particular psychological moment. Wait a minute till we get that crico-thyroid muscle back in place. Well, to make a short story long, while Senator Bailey was speaking in the South, on a certain occasion (he was not so resigned then), one old colored gentleman was heard to inquire of another, “Who dat man?” And the answer came, “Ah don’ ’sac’ly know, but he show do recommen’ hisself highly.” Dan says those “gol darn” chemists are burning sulphur again, but we believe it’s only Irvie discussing his financial rating. Speaking of Irvie reminds us of Eye street — his initials, we suppose. Anyway, we were asked to announce before the close of the service that it will no longer be necessary for the boys to go to Rockville, as the Parsons just around the corner. T his concludes the performance. The next film will be entitled, “In the Good Old Summer Time,” while the orchestra plays the latest faculty rag, “Flunk. Flunk, Flunk, the Boys Are Boning.” m ms N order that you may have time to catch up with your breath and pick up your puffs, we ' ll take time to listen to our female quartet, led by Sanatol, sing that soulful melody, “Every Little Movement.” 99 — JUNIOR MEDICAL CLASS G.

After a summer of mental loafing, they had to settle down again, to prove that they knew how “to show me,’’ when exam, time came. The recruiting officer had been working overtime lately, and instead of lazy ten, fifteen young hopefuls turned their smilling faces upward to allow the dew of knowledge to brighten them. Our retiring president, “Hippocampus Major,’ called our class meeting, and the members proceeded to elect officers. R. M. Fortier and G. M. W. Shea, were nomi- nated for president, and after a long debate. Fortier won the votes; then Shea was elected vice-president; J. R. Travis, secretary. On account of the onerous burden of carrying last year’s class funds, we realized the difficulty in selecting a man who would not be tempted to drag the booty to Canada. L. H English took the responsibility at last. 1 he next office to be filled was that of class editor to the George Washington Umvei- sity annual publication. I did not know how it happened that they elected me instead of our great poets and philosophers who are always ready to beat those of ancient regime. Therefore I am duty bound to write to you these long, tiresome, uninteresting bunches of words. If you feel unsatisfied, please send your troubles at once to our expensive, colorless, transparent president, who is very caustic to taste with his peculiar pungent odor (aqua ammonia Fortier), and he will manage it better for you next time. Next office to be engaged was that of the class editor to the News, and really we hit the right editor. Mrs. C. L. Stallings was elected. Finally the president closed the meet- ing with long, sensible, eloquent, dreamy, speech. Next day the ologies began to claim their attention at once, and what with ology and ology and ology and also ology, not to speak of ology and ology. The students began to find out that the junk they had assembled from the field of knowledge, was just a cir- cumstance to what is ahead. Most of the above mentioned smiling faces ceased to be turned upward for the dew. Some of them turned toward the mountain dew for solace, and the rest to do the least they could for the time they had to stay in the class. The beginning of the last week of January, a terrible and awe inspiring whisper passed among their dazed assemblage, that the smiling countenances of the young fifteen had de- serted them, for the notice was posted on the bulletin board that heretofore had borne only the joyful tidings, that Dr. would be unable to meet his class today. I he news G. W. U. R R Y G. W. U. Sophomore Medical of such dire import was examination in ology will begin January — . But worse was to follow, for the next day a similar one appeared informing the devotees that at the shrine of ology. the divinity would demand the annual sacrifice a week later. Direful were the tidings of the decrees of merciless fate, and hopeless the faces of the wondering worshippers. For twice two days, dispair reigned supreme. But the goddess relented, and from her almost forgotten throne descended, and taught her followers the ceremonies of worship. In parentheses, they commenced to cram. The fated day drew on apace, and the hour itself drew nigh, and found the worshippers with bent heads and beaded brows, putting the finishing touches to their preparation for the ceremony. They bent as the fullness of time was announced by the resounding thunder of a gong. I he am- bassador of the goddess entered, and with a few solemn words of hope, handed to each one a small volume of a dozen pages sheathed in the immortal brown. Fifteen pairs of trembling hands received the token of her favor, fifteen pairs of trembling fingers turned back the ensheating brown, the veil fell, the temple walls with their gloomy recesses faded. The robes of office fell from the ambassador’s shoulder. The altar changed its form and was merely a desk, the ambassador was the usual — ogolist, the temple walls were but the well known walls of the class room, and the volumes in brown merely a note book to put down the few thoughts that might occur while pondering over the strange looking ques- tions. and so examination time passed. A second series of ologies was announced, the hopeless looks returned, but a few days, saw them again dispelled with a familiar expression. “Oh, what’s the use.’’ It is three months before that comes off. 104 G.

We have in our midst a great variety of shapes, forms, and nationalities. There are tall men, short men, fat men, thin men and Irish men. The nationalities range from Dutch to Greek, and there are some who are indefinite. This class is a band of hard-working brothers; we stand side by side in laboratories, we sit side by side in lectures, and what one does not know in quizzes the others tell him. We are an honest class, for sometimes one can lay down an instrument for five minutes without its disappearing. When we arrived at the University in the fall, we were greatly surprised to see the upper-class men take off their hats to us, instead of pounding us up. as is the custom. That, however, is easily explained to anyone who will take the time to look over the differ- ent classes. It is nothing unusual now to see the Juniors and Seniors seeking us out to gain information on the most important medical topics of the day. Before examinations we made all our spending money in quizzing and preparing the upper-classmen for the aforesaid ordeals. We certainly have a fine lot of professors. They all seem to take the greatest interest in the class, and they do all they can, in every way, to develop us into the world’s best physicians and surgeons, and do honor to the George Washington University. The class is right there when it comes to banquets and class meetings. There are several who have a banquet every day in the University. (They bring their lunch.) We had our first class meeting early in the fall. At this we elected officers, who are as follows: President, Thomas J. Miller, Jr. (a fat man) ; Secretary. William Fredrick Passer (a tall, thin man) ; Treasurer, Forrest M. Harrison (an incomprehensible) ; Class-editor, Fay Field (an honest man). At the same meeting we adopted the honor system, a constitution and by-laws. On February I, 1911, another class meeting and banquet was held at the Alpha Kappa Kappa Fraternity House, at which everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. In closing, I will say that the members of the class, one and all. join their voices in singing that melody which will forever be dear to their hearts, and that is “Long Live I he George Washington University.” 107 G.

" The course then extended over two years of five months each. Two years later the course was extended to seven months, but this additional time being found inadequate to keep pace with the ever-increasing demand for higher dental education, the course was gradually increased until now it extends over three years of eight months each. The faculty includes many of the leading practitioners of the city. The student has at his disposal the well selected library of the University as well as the unrivaled resources of the Library of Congress and of the Surgeon-General ' s Library, which latter is the finest medical library in the world. The laboratory and infirmary faculties are of the best and in every way this department ranks with the best dental schools in the country. The Faculty Charles H.

We gathered together in one of our anatomy lecture rooms, and. with a silent, bony figure in the corner to watch over us. the following officers were elected to serve for the year: President. Samuel C. Calvert; vice-president, Lloyd Y. Beers; secretary. Homer E. Wood; treasurer, Frank R. Stockman; editor, G. Julian Sibley. I he year is one long to be remembered by our fellow-classmen. Among the most important school changes was the resignation of Dean J. Hall Lewis. Dr. Henry C. Thompson was elected to fill the position, and is still serving the Dental Department. The autumn of 1909 found only five of our Freshman Class back to take up the Junior Year. After telling a few vacation stories, we met and reorganized, Mr. Lloyd Y. Beers being elected to guide us through the year. T his year found us initiated into the true field of dental work; from all sides we were overwhelmed with lectures from our Professors, among them being Dr. H. C. I hompson, out long-tried and well-known Professor of Operative Dentistry. Dean J. Roland Walton who had charge of us for a thorou gh course on Prosthetic Dentistry, Dr. J. Winslow Tay- lor carrying us through Prosthetic Technics, and Dr. Cadmus L. Odor had Operative Technics. In the Infirmary, we were guided by our genial demonstrators. Dr. Charles T. Bassett and Dr. M. E. Harrison, while Dr. Allen S. Wolf had charge of us for Crown and Budge work. The Senior Year found us all together again. The Class Roll was increased by the matriculation of Richard Aronson, of the New York Dental School, and David Levin, of the University of Maryland. The most important social event was the initial dental department dance given on Febraury I I th, at Mrs. Dyer’s. Much credit is due our faculty and Dean for the improvements that have been made during our school career. New courses have been added in Dental Materia Medica, Oral Propolaxis, and a special course in Anesthetics and Extracting. The infirmary and lab- oratories have been remodeled and the latest equipments have been installed. We have only a short time ere we bid good-bye to our Alma Mater, and cherish the hope that we will all be together at the finish, and enter upon our professional career to do honor to our Class. As a wind up it can be said, Happy did we meet, happy and loyal have we spent our school days, so happy let us part. 1 12 G. W. U. G. W. U.

The only difference we are now Juniors instead of Freshies. In the CHERRY Tree of 1910 the editor headed the Dental Department with the dean riding a snail. Of course, he might not have meant to knock, but we took it upon ourselves to show the world that there was one class at least which was not slow. So with a determination to do something out of the ordinary, we met for reorganization the latter part of November. At this meeting it was decided to give a dance, and a committee was appointed to look into it. Messrs. Angelo, Camalier, and Fowler being the chosen ones. After due deliberation, we decided to ask the Seniors and Freshies to join us. They agreed and the hop came off at Mrs. Dyer’s, Feb. II. 1911. It was chaperoned by Mrs. and Dr. J. Roland Walton, and Mrs. and Dr. Henry Thompson. It was a success in every sense of the word. I he reason I mentioned this in particular is that it is the first thing any Dental class has evei done of any consequence and to think the Junior class was the originator and promoter of the idea. But that is nothing, we showed signs last year of being out of the ordinary and just wait until we are grave Seniors. 3ut. then, we are a bright bunch, anyway. Dr. Neate, in Bugology (bacteriology), says wc are the best dental class he has ever had. Shows for itself, as we all passed our final exams.

W. U. strangers to each other. FBaffll It was an event long to be remembered; an event marking the beginning of a three years’ course, and one which we hope will reflect many happy recollections. Our timidity soon wore off as we became acquainted and began our work with enthusiasm. The roll call found us twenty-three strong, and all fears of the Sophs administering laughing gas being gone we began our election of officers. It was decided outside the anatomical laboratory that L. J. Fowler, of Pennsylvania, should bear the responsibility and honor of being our class president. At the regular meeting he was so elected and W. B. Silliman, of Pennsylvania, vice-president. Claude Durfee, of Illinois, was elected secretary and editor and to represent the class on The CHERRY Tree and in other literary ways. Our class received an invitation to attend a smoker given by the Psi Omegas at their fraternity. The class accepted the invitation and the social evening, together with short talks, given by the worthy members of that body, were appreciated by the class. Another class meeting was called January nineteenth, nineteen hundred eleven, at which time our president handed in his resignation, having severed his relationship with G. W. U. We regretted to lose him, both as our president and classmate. An election for president was then in order and Claude Durfee, our secretary, was elected. Elmer E. Briggs, of Pennsylvania, was elected secretary and editor. On January twenty-first Andrew P. Bush, of West Virginia, became a member of our class and helped swell in number as well as size. Of the twenty-three who entered only eighteen answered We’ll close with a toast by our president: ‘Here. Here’s to the George Washington University, With love and laughter, Here’s to the class that has gone; Here’s to the class that will follow after. But here’s to your class and my own. , | |9 G. W. U.

In February, 1906, it became a member of the educational system of The George Washington University, under the charter of the University granted by Congress, March 3, 1903, providing for the organi- zation of colleges. The president of the University is ex-officio president of the National College of Pharmacy, and the College is represented in the president ' s council by its dean. The work of the College embraces courses in chemistry, botany, materia medica and toxicology, pharmacy and pharmaceutical laboratory work, analytical chemistry, microscopy, mercantile pharmacy, and pharmaceutical jurisprudence. Three years are required for the completion of the prescribed course. The new College building is centrally located on I street northwest, between Eighth and Ninth streets. It is easily reached by either of the four principal street car lines of the city. 122 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

Those few who did not have this impression soon found our that our class was no place for them. Never will we forget that first trip to the Chemical labora- tory— -there were bottles to the right of us, bottles to the left of us, and bottles all around of us. of every color, shape and size, all containing fluids of every known color — but calmly to our tespective desks walked we brave Freshmen. When the first explosion occurred, due to the inexperience of an embryo pharmacist, not a member of the future doctors so much as batted an eye. As a class we have been punctual and regular in our attendance which fact has been mentioned by several of the Faculty, and well do we remember that Freshman dance when studies were forgotten and every one was out for a good time which we surely had. We are also mindful of our pleasant walk through Lover’s Lane with Professor Waggaman study- ing the secrets of Materia Medica. Why one member of our class even achieved great- ness bv discovering a new element which he termed Alimony and according to the dis- coverer. is closely related to Antimony. Fie found that this element was liberated when Matrimony was broken up under the influence of heat. As we climbed the ladder of success and our studies grew more difficult we found we had little time for social functions, and true to our first determination put business be- fore pleasure. When the end comes and each receives his degree for which we have striven hard and long, we expect to relieve our latent enthusiasm by having one grand cele- bration, at which the lid will be taken off and thrown away. While we have become greatly attached to our College and Faculty we are anxious to go forth and battle with the world, and through the success we hope to accomplish from the knowledge gained within its walls, each is desirous to endow the College with a history of his achievements or in a more substantial manner. 124 G.

Lo! these three years have I watched over her classes until now have I not thought it proper to appear unto them; but over this thy class have 1 kept a close watch, thy going out and thy coming in have I observed and with thee I have been well pleased. Surely goodness, greatness and distinction will follow in thy wake. The mystery of the seven candlesticks which thou seeth is the Faculty as thou first beheld so it appeared to thy class as a huge beast, but thou hast since learned to know it as a source of golden light shedding its softest rays upon thee. The sixteen stars which I hold, represent the sixteen members of thy class, and upon the eight day, of the sixth month, of this year, I will set my seal upon a diploma for each and every star, and, as this wise and old man walked in the midst of the lights, I was suddenly made old like unto himself, and I easily saw the doings of my classmates years after. The first light was that of our honored President. Kirk Butler; that he had been suc- cessful I could plainly see, though he had not achieved his great ambition to become Presi- dent of the District Board of Pharmacy, he had made a large fortune by his successful sale of Butler’s Harmless Hair Dye. In the second light I could see that Ralph Feller was acting manager for the Milton I hompson Pharmacy, of Anacostia. It has been known that they have taken in as much as $7.26 in cash in one day. Gass and Grubbs entered the Army as Pharmacists, and both made money selling home-made booze to the soldiers. Day Boyer was conducting a large hen farm in Maryland, and by using one ot Prof. Kalusowski’s preparations he had his hens laying eggs that were all yolk. The eggs were being used by the Washington druggists in making their emulsion. 125 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Senior Pharmacy Prophecy Snyder’s duty as first secretary to Dr. Wiley consists in explaining the Pure hood and Drug Law to the Washington Pharmacists. In. the next light I had no trouble in recognizing Prof. William Norton, Ph. D., LL. D., M. D. ; he is teaching microscopy in the New York high schools. It can be truly said that Norton is the only member of the class whom Prof. Howard is proud of. " Dutch " Schomer found it impossible to make more money at law than rolling pills. He has gained a very high seat in this profession; he was working on the twelfth floor o! the Ouray Building. Harry Senay got married. Charles Washington Henderson undertook to write a modern text book on Chemis- try for Prof. Menge, after verifying all the experiments in the book in his own private chemical laboratory, where he discovered new elements, compounds, and laws governing the constitution of matter, Charles presented the results of his labor to Prof. Menge. 1 he professor said it was very good, but did not suit his ideas at all. Sam Hohberger was conducting the only " A. D. S. " store in Washington. Charles Whitebread shortly after he graduated, went back to Wisconsin and is now conducting a large drug store at Ashland. All the first prizes arc still coming Charlie’s w f ay. Willis Henderson and Harry Hughes, both born orators, had become famous pro- claiming the virtues of marvelous medical discoveries on the street corners. Between the bursts of eloquence the attention of the audience was held by the buck and wing dance, executed by our gifted classmate. Puss Gill, disguised as a camel boy. Beeson long ago gave up the idea of being a pill roller, but he is still rolling the baby carriage. Miss Nelson was the most successful druggist in the class, in as much as she married her boss, which of course meant shorter hours and more pay. Dammeyer. soon after graduating, went on the stage, and has met with fair success. He w’as last seen walking the railroad tracks between Washington and Annapolis, r t turning from a one night engagement at the Empress Theater. Washington. And the lights from the candlesticks grew dimmer and dimmer, and still more dim, until they were no more; and out of the darkness came the voice of the spirit, saying, " Verily, verily, this is the prophecy of thy class, which shall be fulfilled as it has been written 126 The Prophet.

Willard Day Boyer Maryland Won Scholarship 1908-9.

The successful ones were Presi- dent, Mr. C. V . Barker; Vice-President, Mr. W. Colomb; Secretary, Mr. E. G. Swann; Treasurer, Mr. M. W. Morgan, and Editor, Mr. T. W. Walker. Several social events were given during the year, namely, theater parties and sup- per. One of the most enjoyable affairs given was the box party at the National Theater on the night of the G. W. U. benefit at which eight members of our class attended and afterwards had supper at the Ebbitt. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all that attended, due to the fact that it was thoroughly a George Washington University crowd. It is a night that will long be remembered by those that attended from our class. The following are those who composed the " box party”: Mr. C. W. Barker. President; Mr. W. Colomb, Vice-President; Mr. ' M. W. Morgan. Treasurer; Mr. T. W. Walker, Editor; Mr. D. G. Luckett, Mr. W. Gorsuch, Mr. H. Day, and Mr. Klowzeski. A committee was appointed in March by Mr. Barker to lay plans for the class banquet at the end of the year. I hose composing the committee were Chairman M. W. Morgan, Mr. Colomb, and Mr. Walker. It is sincerely desired that this be a success tor the benefit of all those who have strived so hard to make our school year so great a success. 131 G. W. U. The 19 11 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Freshman Pharmacy HE evening of September 21st was looked forward to by every member of the 1 class, because it was the evening upon which we were to take our first step in a course of study at the end of which was our ambition and our selected profession. As every enterprise has its set back, we had ours. Everyone was a stranger to every- one else, and as we wandered up and down the corridor it seemed that the hour to assemble in the lecture hall would never come, but the time finally arrived and the class, which was to be known as the Freshman Pharmacy Class of nineteen hundred and eleven, was formed. It was not long before we felt quite at home in our new school and everyone was ac- quainted with his fellow classmates. Things went on smoothly during the first month and at a class-meeting during the early part of November, the following officers were elected: Mr. D. Leander Maxwell, president; Mr. F. E. Dudley, Jr., vice-president; Mr. Herbert A. Daly, secretary and treasurer; Mr. F. E. Dudley, Jr., class editor and CHERRY Tree editor. Preparations were made for a class banquet and a committee consisting of Mr. Edwin A. Kenner as chairman; Cecil E. Brock, Ralph N. Chamblin, and Clarence H. Wiley were appointed to take charge of affairs. The banquet was given at Freund’s one evening during the Christmas holidays. It was largely attended, both by the school professors and students of the Class. Pro- fessor Waggaman was the toastmaster of the evening. Speeches were made by Profes- sors Kalusowski, Bradbury, Tewsbury and Tschiffelly on the subjects of Ancient and Modern Pharmacy. At the close of the “feed,’’ we entered the parlor of the banquet hall, where we spent the remainder of the evening with musical selections and jokes. The Christmas holidays put new energy into everyone and the work of the second term was taken up with renewed vim and hope. 1 he closmg months of our initial year in College have been uneventful and we can only add that we wish the year’s work may be successful to all of us and that we may return to our school next year with the same determination and hope that we did at the beginning of the year that has just closed. 133 The 1911 Cherry Tree G.

The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. 136 mnnnuD G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. The College of Veterinary Medicine HE session of 1910-11 marked the third year’s existence of the youngest department of the University, and since its inception progress has been the chief slogan. More fortunate than many schools of similar character, at the outset it had access to the well equipped laboratories of the Departments of Chemistry and Medicine. The faculty of twenty-one members, together with the new equipment and improvements to the Veterinary Hospital, have greatly enhanced the teaching facilities, and have also been the means of greatly increasing the practical work. Owing to the advancement of veterinary medicine in this country the tendency has been towards increasing the requirements in every direction. With the view of keeping in the wake of this movement the sessions have already been lengthened to eight and a half months each, and from the present indications it is not presumptious to assert that before many years elapse the course will be extended over a period of four years. The graduates of the College of Veterinary Medicine are eligible to membership in the American Veterinary Medical Association. They are also eligible to service in both the U. S. Department of Agriculture and the U. S. Army after passing the required examinations. These few facts will merely serve to indicate that the Veterinary Department is fully cognizant of the wide field of usefulness which its graduates may be called and the increasing responsibilities which must be borne by them as scientific veterinarians. 138 G.

There being no upper classmen to “lord it " over us, or to promulgate dire denunciations against upstart freshmen, we entered peacefully and diligently upon our work. Realizing the fact, however, that in union lies strength, we proceeded to organize the class and elected officers to guide our deliberations. Henceforth with little or no excite- ment. we plodded along faithfully for the remainder of the term. Returning the next year, no longer as freshmen, but as juniors, the absence of a few familiar faces revealed the fact that there was no royal road to the D. V. M. degree, and that some of our number having fallen in the “Slough of Despond,” had turned back. Deeply sympathizing with the absent members, yet cognizant of the fate of practically every ' class, we could not halt the onward progression towards the coveted goal, for “time rolls his ceaseless course.” Avoiding the ever present “thief of time.” to the task we set. earnestly hopeful, with the aid of our efficient instruction, of conquering obstacles which in the not far distant future appeared almost insurmountable. At this point our memory takes us back to the many laborious hours devoted to the study of bacteriology and path- ology. during which the apparent intricate inconsistencies of the various microorganisms anu the diversified phenomena of disease processes were so ably elucidated. Our introduction to these subjects produced a feeling of fear lest we fail to comprehend, out later, as the hidden workings of nature were gradually revealed to us, we recovered our mental equilib- rium and absorbed the modern teachings to the limit of our capacity. 1 his brief reference by no means begins to portray the many alternating nervous sensations of cold and heat produced by stimulation of the “anxiety center,” nevertheless, it will perhaps suffice to re- mind us of some of the strenuous events of the junior year. When the year 1910 dawned upon us we realized our long cherished ambition, for it was then that we became members of the Senior Class, which to the undergraduate seems the acme of all existence. Now that we have reached that shining goal, we do not look back upon the rounds of the ladder and scorn the base degrees by which we did as- cend. But as we stand here to receive, at the hands of our Alma Mater, our long coveted honor, we can look upon the lower classmates with a feeling of infinite compassion and sympathy. 140 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. As we look back over the past three years, we find that our paths have not been with- out their thorns; we have had our pains, our sorrows and our moments of despair. Yet, never faltering, we fought on feeling that low aim, not failure, is crime. That our aim was high is shown by the determination with which we have labored; that we have not failed is left for you to judge. The gate of our Alma Mater stands ajar! As we pass through there comes a feeling of joy mingled with sorrow. Our college career is ended; our class has graduated; to- morrow we shall enter upon the duties of life in reality, for — “We hear a voice you cannot hear. Which says we must not stay. We see a hand you cannot see. Which beckons us away.“ With joy Fellow Classmen, let us answer this call and go forth realizing the great lcsponsibility which rests upon us. In the words of the poet: “Look not mournfully so The Present. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the Present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the Shadowy Future without fear. And with a manly heart.” g. w. u. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Senior Veterinary + George Wesley Brett George was born at Boston. Mass., under a lucky star.

V. M.“ The two years have been, perhaps, less eventful to us, than to our numerous subjects, who, though having many tales, may speak not. Together with instructions quite theoretical, we have received during our Junior year many “live subjects” on which to bestow our investigating, yet kindly and much reeded, attention. We have been no respecter of class, being equally willing to experi- ment on the French coach, the registered bovine, the blue ribbon dog (attended by butler and maid), as on old bones. Old Dog Tray, the alley cat or members of the Freshman Class. Although we do not claim to have any “high-brows” in our number, we are confi- dent of becoming successful veterinarians. We are well on the way toward a better appre- ciation of the details of our varied course of instruction. Our work in bacteriology and pathology under the able direction of Dr. Neate and his corps of assistants, has acquainted us with the new problems, some yet unsolved, with which the veterinary practice is so full. We have been introduced to the ails the animal world is heir to, and know better than did the leeches of auld lang syne how to successful cope with them. In another year (we hope) we shall be ready to start out on our career of not only preserving the health and maintaining the high standard of our country’s live stock — to say nothing of its canine and feline pets — but also of saving infant life by supervising the cities’ milk supply, and of prolonging adult life by rigid inspection of all meat an d dairy products. Already we hear the “Call of the West’’ and of our neighbors in the far South, and are eagerly waiting for the year 1912, when we shall leave the class rooms and lab- oratories of the George Washington University for the broad fields of our chosen life work. 149 G.

The meeting was a very poorly arranged affair, the boys evidently thinking they had gathered for “rough house " rather than business. We, however, at last got down to business, as our very successful year shows. The officers elected were A. S. Chadwick, President; G. H. Grenfell, Vice-President; H. C. Littleford, Treasurer, and W. E. Martin, Secretary. We are not very large in numbers, but if our hopes are realized, and we have every teason to believe they will be, the class next year will be materially increased. Owing to the fact that the work laid out for us, by our worthy faculty, has kept us on the " jump " every spare moment of our time, our class spirit, of which there is an abundant supply, has been kept hermetically sealed. We, however, expect to give a good account of ourselves before we finish our college course and bring honor to the school. We have in our midst some very distinguished southern " huskies, " who have already commenced practicing, one of them in particular having killed two cows and a horse in one week. It is with regret that we are forced to write such a brief history, but owing to the fact that our career has only just commenced we feel sure that you will excuse us at this time. 151 FRESH MAX VETERINARY CLASS G.

W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Pyramid Honor Society HE PY RAM ID HONOR SOCIETY enjoys the distinction of being the only honor society in the University. Its members are drawn from the ranks of those who have participated in student activities. Its purpose is to band into one body those undergraduates, who, by their activity in University interests, have earned the honor of public recognition, in order thereby to promote the welfare of the University and to foster a strong college spirit among its student body. Measuring it by this consciously selected purpose it has, in all frankness, a good deal remaining to do. But its field is a large one, and considering the fact that it has been organized only little more than a year its progress has been well marked. As to the future of the society. Inasmuch as the membership of the Pyramid is recruited exclusively from the number of those who have distinguished themselves in the various student activities of the University, the existence of the society is directly dependent upon the continuation of those activities. If student activities are abolished or dwindle into insignificance — and the present tendency seems unmistakably in that direction — the very basis upon which the society is built will be gone, and consequently the society must inevitably die out. It may seem like a logical inversion to say that the University should continue student activities in order that it may have some justifica- tion for the existence of an honor society in its midst. Such an organization is. to be sure, rather a result than an impelling cause of student enterprises. Yet as an abstract propo- sition every one will admit that it is desirable that the University should have an honor society. There is something so distinctive and so cosmopolitan about a well conducted honor society that it must be recognized as a valuable asset to every educational institution. I he desirability of perpetuating an honor society, organized along broad lines of University helpfulness, as the Pyramid Honor Society is, is only an added reason why every effort should be made to continue activities.

W. U. The 1911 Cherry T ree G. W. U. Athletics at the University un- A THLETICS at George Washington University seem to be doomed. An fortunate foot-ball season and a poor showing on the track have put an end wm to all efforts in this direction. The few supporters there were left have been discouraged, and the faculty is no longer in sympathy. The sentiment is that if we can’t have representative University teams, have none at all ; and that seems to be the only logical view to take of the matter. Otherwise, instead of helping the University it only hurts it, and we will always be barred from competition with first-class institutions. The growth of athletics at George Washington dates from the year 1901, when it was still Columbian University. Before that time there had been spasmodic attempts to put teams in the field, but no organized effort. In the winter of 1901-1902 three freshmen — Albert, Maupin, and Rickets, all of the old Corcoran Scientific School — organized the Columbian University Athletic Association. Much enthusiasm was aroused and a great impetus given to athletics. Foot ball, base ball, and track teams bearing the “C” entered competition with the colleges of Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The first teams were naturally weak, but each year showed an improvement. In 1904 Columbian University became George Washington, and the Van Ness Park was acquired, supplying the much-needed athletic field. That year was a banner year. The foot-ball team defeated all of its rivals except Western Maryland and Georgetown, the base-ball team made a very good showing, and we were distin- guished on the track by one of the fastest relay teams in the South. This status continued for about two years more. In 1907 the Van Ness property was sold and we were without an athletic field. I his killed base ball and out-door track. Foot ball continued because it was self-supporting, and the track team worked under difficulties. The foot-ball team of 1908 was one of the strongest in the country and rightfully laid claim to the Cham- pionship of the South. The following year it was nearly as strong, and now in 1910 the crash has come and the last two sports are about to be discontinued. 1 o those who have studied the situation it is evident that if we are to put repre- sentative teams into the field and have a good healthy condition of athletics at George Washington, two things are absolutely essential: First, a larger enrollment of day students; second, a campus or athletic field belonging to the University. College spirit will follow. Until these factors are realized why should we continue to struggle along in a discreditable and spasmodic manner? It only hurts the institution. Would not the energy be better directed if it aimed toward acquiring and equipping a gymnasium, which would more certainly serve the real purpose of athletics for the student body? — 211 HE foot-ball team of 1910 was a much maligned and much criticised institution. _ Some of it perhaps was just, but a great deal of it was unjust. I he team struggled under adverse conditions. It was handicapped by a poor schedule and by poorer student support. In spite of this the team held together, often with great individual sacrifice, and tried to play out the games in order that the name of George Washington might not suffer, until finally a faculty ruling disbanded it. From an athletic standpoint the team was certainly inferior to the teams of pre- ceding years. It possessed several strong individual players, but a well-balanced machine was not developed. Captain Hart and Eichkoff were picked as tackle and center on the All-Southern team. However, the record of three games lost out of six played does not do full justice to the worth of the team, as in the latter part of the season they began to show true form and would no doubt have given a good account of themselves on Thanks- giving day. I he line up was practically the same throughout the season: Capt. Hart and F. Smith, tackles; Richardson, Herndon, and Pyles, guards; Eichkoff and Brandt, centers; Langley, M. S. l armer, and Hamlin, ends; C. Farmer, Langley, and Diener, quarter- backs; Moore, Flooton, Willey and Farmer, full-backs; Ellis, Valaer, Willey, Langley, and Crafts, half-backs. Manager Haller and Coach Magoffin deserve the thanks of the institution for their earnest efforts in behalf of the team. 212 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. The Track Team J. P. Fleming, Captain. Harold Keats, Manager. Assistant Managers Howard W. Hodgkins, Miles F. Bingham, Henry Zeh, Claude Parker. FIE track season this term was begun un- der exceedingly discouraging conditions. Owing to the failure of the football team to place a surplus in the athletic treasury, it was debated for a long time as to whether it would be possible to continue track athletics at the institu- tion. Only by dint of the greatest effort on the part of a few loyal students was the athletic coun- cil persuaded to sanction the holdings of any track athletic games. As soon as this sanct ion was granted Mr. Keats, the manager of the team, se- cured as training quarters the bath houses and track of the District of Columbia, where Mr. Fleming, as captain, soon had the men under- going their first workout. Although the very late start severely handi- capped the manager and the team a meet was MANAGER KEATS arranged for the purpose of bringing out men and selecting the best material. This was the first event of its kind ever held in George Washington University, being an inter-faculty or inter-departmental competition. In spite of the newness of the thing and the short time allowed for completing the arrange- ments a large squad was brought out, each department in the University being repre- sented. The College of Arts and Sciences won the meet by a large margin, the College of Dentistry coming next, while the Law Department was third. Those who won points for their respective departments were awarded as prizes the numerals of their class. Since this also is an innovation the only men in the University having a right to the honor of wearing track numerals are Mr. C. Farmer, the winner of the greatest number of points; Mr. Fleming, the captain of the team; Mr. Maxon, Mr. Bryant, Mr. Renner, Mr. Keats, manager: Mr. Hodgkins, assistant manager; Mr. Bingham, assistant manager; Mr. Zeh, assistant manager. This affair having been so successful, the athletic council was encouraged to authorize the holding of the annual inter-collegiate meet in Convention Hall. This event, since “Bob Fleming’s year,” has come to be looked forward to by all the colleges and “prep” schools in the Eastern and South Atlantic Association as one of the biggest ,213 - THE RELAY SQUAD G. W. U. G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree The Track Team — Continued athletic events of the indoor season. And rightly is it so considered, it being on a par with the only two others held in the South. Again, the late start and the lack of funds was a great drawback to the management. Much to the surprise, however, of the pro- moters of sport in Washington, the event was arranged and staged with all the suc- cess which could have attended it had there been the usual amount of time at the dis- posal of the management. A few points of interest with respect to the meet are all that need be cited here. Suffice it to say that it was the first event of its kind which has ever been conducted at this institution without a financial loss; it was, thanks to the officials, run off faster than any meet in either Wash- ington or Baltimore; it had the largest at- tendance of out-of-town competitors of any previous set of indoor games; it was the first at which all spectators could really learn the outcome of the races, a new method of an- nouncing being employed. In a word, it was the best yet. As for the feats of the George Wash- ington Athletes in the competition on that night, the 4th of February, too much praise cannot be given them. Diener carried away three points in the pole vault, while the relay team lost to V. P. I. only because of an accident to the second man at one of the turns. The relay team was composed of Parker, Bailey, Brady, and Valaer. In the face of the most adverse cir- cumstances the management of the track de- partment has been most successful. 1 o the manager, Mr. Keats, and his assistants, Messrs. H. W. Hodgkins, Zeh, Parker, and Bingham, the University owes a debt of profound gratitude. The wearers of the 1 rack “W”: Mr. Harold Keats, Manager. Mr. John Patton Fleming, Captain. G. W. U.

A banquet was held at the Congressional on the 17th of December attended by ever fifty men. The guests included Dean H. L. Hodgkins, of the College of Engi- neering and Mechanic Arts; Dr. S. W. Stratton, director of the Bureau of Standards; Rear Admiral M. T. Endicott, U. S. N. (retired), president of the American Society of Civil Engineers; Mr. H. A. Coombs, a prominent patent attorney and mechanical engineer, and Dr. Gore, professor emeritus of mathematics at the University. President Roy F. Carty acted as toastmaster. A spring dance was given at Mrs. Dyers, which was a success both socially and financially. Sufficient funds were raised to meet all the expenses incurred during the year, so that a clean sheet is presented to start next year. Ten business meetings have been held and six evening technical meetings up to the time this goes to press. The high character of the latter class of meetings may be gathered from the partial list of talks and papers. “Wireless Telegraphy, by Instructor Gordon; “Methods of Charging for Electric Power, by I. R. Saum, 10, president of the Society last year; “Liquid Air,“ by Dr. Gray, of the Bureau of Standards; “The Manufacturing and Testing of Electric Lights, by G. F. Schladt, of the Bureau of Standards, and a member of the Society; “Principles of the Steam Turbine, ’ by Dr. Edgar Buckingham; “Large Capacity Test Machines,” by E. L. Lasier, of the Bureau nf Standards, and members of the Society. In addition a very instructive and interesting evening was spent visiting the laboratories of the Bureau of Standards The Society has designed and adopted a pin and owns the die. A copy of the banquet picture has been framed and presented to the University. The Society has at present forty-seven men on its rolls compared to twenty last year, a gain of twenty-seven new members, or a hundred and thirty-five per cent. It is certain that the Society, judging from its successful first year, much improved second year, and bright outlook for next year, will be an increasing source of strength to the Engineering College and to the engineering students. 219 - THE CHEMICAL SOCIETY G.

Ingersoll, Vice-President R. L. Shuman, Secretary A. S. Thatcher, Treasurer The Executive Committee is composed of the officers and the following: M. A. Pozen Elmer Stewart G. P. Walton In view of the fact that Washington is a scientific and educational center, and has so many finely equipped laboratories and libraries, it is an ideal place for the formation of such a society. At a meeting on October 28, 1910, the wielders of the wash bottle and test tube decided to organize, and a committee was appointed to draw up a constitution and by-laws. On November 4 the committee reported the results of their labors and they were approved with slight amendment and signed by all present. Thus the Chemical Society of the George Washington University was formed in accordance with all the laws of valence, chemical affinity and association. In passing it seems fitting to quote a section of this splendid piece of statesmanship — the constitution — as follows: “The object of the society shall be to promote the interest in chemistry among the students of the University and to encourage better acquaintance and mutual help among the students of chemistry.” At the same meeting Dean Charles E. Munroe was elected Honorary President, and the society’s success is due in a very great measure to his active assistance and hearty cooperation. A great deal of interest has been manifested in the meetings and all have been well attended. Some of the papers which have been read and discussed during the past year are “Petroleum and Its Products,” “Destructive Distillation of Wood,” “Determination of Sulphur in Fuel,” and at several of the meetings abstracts from current chemical litera- ture have been presented. At the December meeting Dean Munroe addressed the members and suggested that an investigation of the records of the chemistry graduates of the University and the things accomplished by them be made. February 10 was a red-letter day in the history of the society, for on that date Dr. Harvey W. Wiley delivered an address which was most enjoyable and entertaining as well as highly ed ifying. The banquet held at the New Ebbit on February 2 I was another history-making affair. Among the other land- marks of the year was a talk by Mr. McDermott, of the Hygienic Laboratory and Metallurgy night.

The aim of the Association has been to assist its student members in preparing for the broader sphere of life they are about to enter as professional men. and to enable them to intelligently discuss the questions and problems encountered in the various branches of veterinary medicine. In order to accomplish its objects papers pertaining to some phase of the profession are read at each meeting either by students, honorar members, 01 by some reputable speaker, after which a free discussion follows. In this way much benefit is derived, and many interesting scientific points are brought out in debate. T hese meetings, held twice monthly, provide a neutral ground where all class dis- tinctions are set aside, where Freshmen, Juniors and Seniors mingle, and enjoy equal rights. Here, many pleasant and lasting friendships have already sprung up among mem- bers o! the different classes, thus helping, more than any other one thing, perhaps, to pro- mote a common interest in regard for the welfare of the Department. A banquet was given by the Association this year, and since it proved such an enjoy- able occasion, will, no doubt, become an annual affair. Keeping pace with the steady growth of the Veterinary Department, our Association is increasing in membership, power and usefulness, and bids fair to be a stronge college organization. As in the past, so in the future, will it stand for advancement in all things worth while and will be a strong bond uniting its members in a common interest for the welfare of the University. HE Veterinary Medical Association was organized during the session 1908-09, by the class of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

As the only organization in which all the women students are brought together the society fills an important place in the social as well as the religious life cf the University, and has been instrumental in bringing the girls into closer companionship. 1 he chief event of the year was the visit of Miss Holmquist, of the National Board cf Y. W. C. A.. M iss Holmquist addressed the society on January 1 4, telling of Y. W. C. A. work and its success in many other colleges. The interest inspired by her visit is evidence that it was a most helpful one to the organization. The kind sympathy o r the members of the Advisory Board, and of Miss Florence Brown, has also been greatly appreciated. L 1 HOUGH deprived this year of the invaluable help and inspiration of Miss Ellis, former dean of women in the University, the girls have shown an increas- ing interest in the work of the Y. W. C. A., and the winter has been a suc- 223 — HE quarters of the Y. M. C. A. are on the fourth floor of 1528 I street. Some of the members or their friends may be found there at any time in the day. Many pleasant hours have been spent there by the men in reading, studying or in discussions of the various topics of the day. All the men are cordially invited to come up and make themselves at home. The best periodicals will be found on the table. WORK OF THE Y. M. C. A. The work of the Y. M. C. A. is conducted by four committees — the committee on Bible Classes, on Religious Meetings, on Membership, and on Finance. The following chairmen have been appointed: Ralph Dunbar, Bible Classes; J. P. Fleming, Religious Meetings; L. A. Maxson, Membership; A. H. Redfield, Finance. BIBLE CLASSES A present only one Bible class is being conducted by the Y. M. C. A. This class meets every Friday from I to I :30 p. m. The topics for discussion are, “The Problems of Life ’ We are very fortunate in having Rev. Mr. Douglas, of the Luther Memorial C hurch, as our leader. It is an exceedingly interesting class, one in which every student of the University should be interested. All men are urged to attend. RELIGIOUS SERVICES The Y. M. C. A. conducts the regular chapel service every Wednesday. The services are led chiefly by members of the Association. Before the end of this year we expect to have several fine outside speakers, which will make the services more attractive. The annual mass meeting was not held this year. Mr. L. A. Maxson and Mr. A. H. Redfield attended the Interstate Y. M. C. A. convention which was held in Washington, March 14-16 at St. John ' s Church. At the following regular weekly meeting a very interesting report of the proceedings of the convention was given by the delegates. ANNUAL BANQUET 1 he annual banquet will be held this year in the banquet hall of the Central Y. M. C. A. building, April 13. It is under the direction of Mr. Louis A. Maxson. Mr. Maxson and his committee have fixed up a program and menu that promises by far to outdo any other that has ever been offered by the Association. At present the prospects of the success of the banquet are very bright, and it is expected that all who attend will be pleased with the entertainment. 225 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. The Y. M. C. A. + STUDENTS HANDBOOK Owing to the inability to return of Mr. Blakesley, who was chosen president to succeed Mr. D. R. Covell, and to the fact that a new president could not be elected until college reopened, it was impossible to get out the Handbook this year. I his does not mean that the publishing of the Handbook will be discontinued, for next year will see it back again better and more useful than ever. During the Christmas holidays the Y. M. C. A. drew up a new constitution which was adopted by the Association. In accordance with an article of this new constitution new officers of the Y. M. C. A. were elected at the beginning of the second term of college and entered their offices on the 22d of February. 7 heir official inauguration will take place at the annual banquet. The officers who retired on the 22d of February were: John P. Fleming President Louis A. Maxson First Vice-President Prescott S. Tucker Second Vice-President Ralph Dunbar Secretary Duncan C.

AERO CLUB was formed in March, 1911, by a number of students interested in aeronautics, for the purpose of studying the new science of aviation and arousing interest among the students of the University. Owing to the late organization of the club not much will be done this year, but a great deal is hoped for next year. The club has secured the right to use the machines of the National Aviation Company, which is conducting an aviation school at College Park, Md., and it is very probable that several members will take advantage of the offer this summer. Next season it is planned to build an experimental machine and try it out at the College Park aerodrome. 227 - THE R R. AND S O. OF THE S. I) G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. The Right Royal and Secret Order of the Sacred Dodo •s. HIS organization came in to being early in the fall when the live Sophomores , who formed it met again after the summer vacation. Already joined together by SllESS a year’s association in class and out, on finding that we would be so associated for another year, we desired a little closer organization. After a long siege we secured our palatial suite of rooms on the fifth floor of fifteen twenty-eight Eye. The main objection to letting us have the rooms seemed to be a fear that we would freeze to death during the winter as heating facilities were nil at that advanced altitude. But we stuck to it and at last won the day. The palatial suite, consisting of a dining room, library, and drafting rooms, was ours with the only rent specified being regular attendance lo Thursday chapel. And we have paid our rent quite regularly. We covered the walls with pictures and the floor with rugs, and brightened up the woodwork so that it doesn’t look like the same place, and we have during the year spent many hours of toil there and some few when we did not work so laboriously. Our rooms, too, have the proud distinction of being the only part of the University buildings to have a private electric lighting plant in full operation. We also are protected by an electric signal which announces to us when any bill collectors are at the door. We consider that we all deserve honorary E. E.’s for the ingenuity shown in the wiring of these complicated apparatus and especially in the construction of the announcer, but unfortunately we have yet to convince the authorities. Well, the year is all but ended, and it has been a good year. We hope to spend others as pleasant, and may we all be doing business at the old stand again next year. All that remains is to give the roll of honor. OFFICERS AND MEMBERS His Royal Majesty THOMAS J.

The Wireless Club composed of the students taking the course in wireless telegraphy under Professor Gordon and those of the student body who expect to take the course in the future. I he meetings of the club are held on Monday night of each week in the wireless station. I he club is very fortunate in that the wireless station is a very complete one, and also in the fact that few men in the country are better posted in the theory of wireless telegraphy than Professor Gordon. At intervals during the year the members of the club have been able to communi- cate with distant stations, among which are the University of Pennsylvania, at Philadel- phia; the navy-yard, at Norfolk; the naval station, at Cape Hatteras, and the commercial stations located at Sparrow’s Point. Md. ; Wilmington, Del., and Atlantic City, N. J. Professor Gordon has planned to enlarge the station considerably next year, so that there will be room for a large increase in the membership of the club.

Lazarus lif HEN all the universe is agreed upon a proposition it may, with little hesitation, . be said that that proposition is true — is law. Accordingly, from of old has 8S it been said that knowledge — education — is power. And real education does not consist in the amplitude of the curriculum through which one has labored, nor yet in a plentitude of “sheepskins’ which a student may have garnered. Rather does real education consist in what he remembers. Of what avail are his degrees, his close appliation and untiring concentration on his ’isms and ’ologies if he remembers naught of them, or if, perchance, the student does remember, yet of what avail, if he cannot tell what he recalls to a world so weary and harassed that it must be compelled to attention? Though in Lincoln’s immortal address on the field of battle at Gettysburg occur the lines, “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here,’’ yet the world has remembered and will remember what the great Emancipator gave u;terance to on that hard-fought field in those trying times of war, because — what he said was said so n yell. That ambition, then, is the “be-all and the end-all’’ of the Columbian Debating Society — to inculcate into the students of the University the art — for it is an art — of speaking well. What to say and how to say it. To be learned in the problems of the day. To be at ease on the public rostrum. To be capable of interesting an audience and then of holding its attention. To be able to think clearly and to exercise sound judgment in the heat of argument. For the attainment of all these fundamentals, and more, stands the Columbian Debating Society. Once weekly, on Friday nights, the members of the Columbian gather at the Law School to discuss and debate subjects of national and world interest, and three times yearly does the Society engage in public debating contests with its rival Debating Society in the Law School, in which contests has it ever acquitted itself honorably and well. Always wide open, to any of the men of the George Washington University, are the portals, and hearty the welcome of the Columbian Debating Society. 235 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

Thompson Member of Debating Council Minnesota Representatives on Inter-Society Debates, 1910-1911 William R. Fitch Paul E. Bbadley Walter E. Kelley Clarence E. Deyo J. Paul Oren HE Needham Debating Society, although established as recently as 1902, has 1 in this short period turned out more speakers of note than any similar organization in this part of the country. The Needham Society is not alone in turning out these men. They have been turned out wherever they have attempted to address an un- progresoive public. A well-known senator, whose name we do not recall, said that if all the orators turned out in this country were as calm and unruffled as Needham men, there would be much less hard feeling. The fact is the members of the Society are used to turning out. They have the same amount of work coming to them both as regards law and other duties, as do the other members of the University. Yet when Friday night arrives they turn ou. to the debate. While the other students at home turn in and read law the Needham mei. turn out and debate. While the men at home try to get outside of facts, the debaters by the process of oratory try to get some of their knowledge outside of their systems, where it may do some good. [ hus we see how important it is to know when to turn out. A man trained as a speaker has to turn out in his youth and practice hard so that later, when he meets a diffi- cult proposition, he can turn in and tackle it, at the same time securing many valuable re- cruits by reason of his persuasion. Another man without this training sees trouble coming and turns outs. The trouble passes him. He never touches. Which ever way we turn, in or out. the fact remains that “one good turn deserves another. “ Needham men feel that they have found when to turn out. The time to do so is when you are in college and have an opportunity to secure a better all-round training, not later in life, when you see trouble and don’t know how to meet it. The Needham Society is glad to welcome to its membership all students who desire to do a good turn. P.

Diplomania Based on the study of twenty-two cases which have come under the writer’s observation in the George Washington University, 1910-11: Synonyms — Fourth-fever, Post Junior Infection. History — The early stage of the disease known as junioritis medici. Etiology — Age; most common between 22 and 27; sex, males are more often affected than females; race, none is exempt, thus, during the present study a Japanese, a Filipino, and a Russian were taken sick, as was a Syrian. Season — Begins in October, running with relapses until the early part of June, when it terminates by crises with either recovery (60 — 80 per cent) or death. Pre-existing disease — The disease is always preceded by junioritis medici. Habits — Exists only among the better classes. High school and other faulty education as well as refined environment are strong predisposing factors. Pathology — Marked emaciation is the rule, not necessarily extending to the cranium, however. Talkative delirium alternating with low, indistinct mumbling, es pecially during quizz. Pokeritis and Pabst disease are common. 257 - G. W U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Diplomania 4 Symplons — 1 he incubation period is usually three years, during which “swell head,” boasting, and various grandiose manias, together with a craving for liquor and cigarettes. Restlessness, high spirits, high balls, good resolutions, and determina- tions to study are common. Aphasia during quizz hours and singing (or attempts thereof) during examinations of “every little question has an answer all its own” are also prevalent. A pathognomonic sign is a desire on the part of the patient to bet anybody any amount that he (the patient) will succumb to the disease. Patients exchange all sorts of dreams and premonitions, and become quite superstitious. he circulatory system — Slow, irregular, comprehensible pulse which Dr. Avery terms “brandy cardia pulse;” skin usually pale. Clinical varieties — I. Abortive or shoemaker type. 2. The mild or Smith-Zimmerman type. 3. I he dementia pre-Cox variety. 4. The malignant or Brock type. Percussion sound is flat everywhere, except over the skull, where it is hyper-resonant, in- dicating a cavity. Diagnosis — Easy; rests on the history of junior- itis medici. Prognosis — Guardedly favorable. Have to consider the previous history of the pa tient and the severity of the symptoms present. Prognosis is much less favor able now, however, than formerly. Treatment — The specific treatment which never fails is a diploma conferring on the pa- tient an M. D. degree. A. E. Eisenberg. 258 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U.

If all our subjects acted the way “Doc” Clayton does when assisting at a major operation veterinary surgery would be a dream; restraining precautions would be un- necessary, and anaesthetics would be relegated to the past.

That was too much. He w r ent to the proprietor and complained. The proprietor scratched his head and thought awhile.

And all our thinks are thunk. What will save us from a flunk? Our pony. Once I knew a little boy Who never told a lie; You see he hadn ' t learned to talk. And that’s the reason why.

And his beautiful socks in view, A little round hat on the back of his head. With its ribbon of mauve or blue; With his dear little self all decked with rings, And pins from that dear " prep school. It strikes a chord, and I say. " Oh Lord, Was I ever that big a fool? " When I see a youth with his gloves turned down. And a cigarette stuck in his face, A horse-cloth suit, and a loud checked vest. And a two-inch wide shoe lace; With a bunch of hair that covers his ears. And I hear his line of senseless droll, I paw the sward, as I say " Oh Lord, Was I ever that big a fool? " G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. When, i. e. — When you try to find the values of the letters x and y. Till you can ' t tell " plus " from " minus " nor " divide from multiply; When you study logarithms ' till your mind runs round and round So you can’t tell any difference if the book is upside down — Ash Dr. Hod 2 bins. When you study engineering ' till you think you have it " pat, " So that you could build a railroad or a modern city flat; But on the examination, when your mind declines to think. Till the knowledge that you thought you had at once begins to shrink — Appeal lo Professor Mechlin. When o ' er chemistry you study ' till your eyes begin to weep, ' Till you dream you are a chemist every time you go to sleep. As all chemists have to lecture every day and night at school On the subject, " How an atom differs from a molecule — Co to Dr. M unroe. When you on your German lesson study for three hours or more, Then perceive you can’t translate it any better than before. Just be calm — you may discover that the trouble in your way Is that your vocabulary has some words no one should say — Submit lo Dr. Schocnfeld. When you Anglo-Saxon study ' till you can’t think any more. When you read Shakespeare and Chaucer ' till your very head is sore; When you rhetoric pore over ' till you think you know enough About similes, hyperboles, and such confusing stuff — Drop a note to Professor Wilbur. When you read till you are weary of events so long ago, ' Till you wish that you had lived then and had been a Pharoah; When you worry over history ' till it hath no charms for you. And you it but half remember — the best thing for you to do — Is to see Professor Sivishcr. 278 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. In German Professor S. — “Mr. Anybody, you may translate.” Mr. Anybody — “Und — or and eh!” Professor S. — “And the army Mr. Anybody — “And the army Oh eh but — “ Professor S. — “And the army was driven back by the enemy, who received rein- forcements just in time to save them from defeat.” Mr. Anybody — “Was so I’ve lost the place. Professor S. — “Sixth line.” Mr. Anybody — “Oh — et no; und or and the Professor S. — “City “ Mr. Anybody — “City was there — ” Professor S. — “Taken.” Mr. Anybody — “Oh, yes; was taken.” Professor S. — “Very good. Mr. Stude, take the next.” + Some Dental Professors (Label Joke) The Neate Y oung Dr. Lawrence Monroe Thompson sent Bassett to the Barnes. 4 Even Professor Mumma is reported to have said that the Law examination papers on “Pills and Dopes” looked more like the work of medical than of law students. ’UP 279 - G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. V. U A Manual of Etiquette for Professors Dr. — -n: Don’t fail in examina- tions to aim at making them com- prehensive rather than terminable. Don’t recognize that time is finite and that man — and woman, too. —are merely human. Dr. G : Don t confine yourseff to the text-book. That is too narrow and pedantic. Give talks on your journeys — on your scien- tific experiences. Do not fail to bring in your standard jokes at every recitation. Otherwise some unknowing and unappreciative student might call mathematics dry and uninteresting. Dr. H : Be sure to give little surprise examinations now and then. You are thus able to comprehend more easily the extent of the knowledge of the class. Don’t fail to impress on the students that at infinity there is hope for them. Do not forget to impale with the hard, icy glitter of your eye any student who may chance to come late to class. Be careful in making experiments that no explosions occur. Dr. L — In chosing ques tions for an examination do not fail to provide for a com- plete abstract of the entire lecture course. Don’t demand less than a valume of forty pages to satisfy the requirements of the questions. Don’t be afraid to use chalk. A box or two wasted doesn’t add much to the expenses of the college and does add vivacity to your lectures. Don’t encourage free silver and free-trade discussions in your class. They cause differences of opinion, and in unity lies strength. Dr. S : Don’t make your sentences any more intelligible than is necessary to give them the correct philosophical ring. Don’t be satisfied with the best work of the class. A little wholesale criticism will stimulate them to better work and will make them enthusiastic over the psychological “ego " and the ethics of suicide. 280 G. W. U. The 1911 Cherry Tree G. W. U. Dr. M : Don’t fail to stimulate the class to better work by walking nervously up and down while lecturing. Don’t ever see or hear anything but what is intended should be seen or heard by you. Don’t take too great interest in athletics; it doesn’t pay always. Dr. S : Don’t fail to reassure the trembling student with “You and together can do anything,’’ with emphasis on the “I. ’ Don’t hesitate to commend warmly the student who continually takes advantage of the above-mentioned assurance. If he by any chance has not prepared his lesson well and hesitates for a word, come to the rescue with a warm generosity and sympathy, answer fully yourself, and give him credit for the brilliant recitation. Dr. R : Don’t confine yourself to one subject; be broad and thereby great. Urge your class to observe the beautiful in art as well as in nature. Don’t fail to emphasize the value of pleasant surroundings in developing the aesthetic sense. Don’t mind about incidental consumption of class time; there is always plenty of time for general discussion. Dr. S : Don’t neglect to lay great stress on private reading. If a student does not feel a love for history now he never will do so. Classroom work is merely the skeleton — the bare outline; private outside reading is the flesh and the sinews. Don’t fail to demand less than six hours preparation for daily recitations; otherwise the student would not be showing the proper interest in the work. Don’t make things too easy for those that are late. You will never secui° well-dis- ciplined classes if you do. It would be better to stop short, wherever you may be in a sentence, and fix your eyes on the offender until HE reaches HIS seat. Then gently remind HIM that HE has disturbed every member of the class. Under this method he will never (?) repeat the offense. (No limitation as to sex is meant here by the use of “he. ’) Professor W : Don’t fail to pause markedly at the close of the reading of each essay, and wait until the conception of the whole has come upon your consciousness before you reward the anxious student with, “That is an excellent paper.” Such suspense and doubt is good for the moral training of the pupil. Always hold your own opinion in the background until the over confident student has declared his. Then calmly proceed with an apologetic smile to correct his effusions. Instructor G : Don’t fail to impress on your former college mates that you are not dignified now; that you are an instructor. The best way to enable them to under- stand this is to continue to run up and down the stairs and to wear your plentiful hair in waving love locks over your forehead to set off the fiery splendor of your eye. . 28 I G.

In recognition of this, as well as for other reasons, we invite the cooperation of the public who know good work and what it sometimes costs to do it. A frequent testing of this store, its character, the quality of its products and the scrupulous care with which our prescriptions are prepared will help you and aid materially in the further development of our claim that there is appreciation for an honest conscientious effort to alleviate the sufferings of mankind.
