(Eharlps Nnblr (Sregury, A. UL ICiL 0. NOBLE GREGORY, Dean of the Department of Law ML was born in New York and taken in childhood by his to Madison, Wisconsin, where he was reared and educated, ler was for many years a prominent lawyer and man of public i that city; and his mother was a woman of strong character, l manner and many social accomplishments. With the advan- tages of such parentage and the opportunities which were thus afforded, it was perhaps not surprising that the son should be graduated with high honor from the University of Wisconsin, of which his father was a regent, and that he should complete his law course with distinction in that institution and should receive from it later the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws, Becoming a member of a law partnership with his father, he was in active practice until his appointment as Associate Dean of that Law School, During his service in this capacity the standard of the school was elevated to a high plane and the Harvard case system of instruction was introduced. In the meantime Mr, Gregory had been engaged in various municipal and national activities, having been Alderman, Chairman of the Council Committee on Water Works, and Member of the Board of Education and the Board of Trade, as well as having been prominent in the movement for Civil Service Reform, In 1901 Mr, Gregory was chosen as the Dean of the College of Law of the State University of Iowa, an office which he filled very creditably for ten years, resigning in 1911. Mr. Gregory has long been an active member of the American Bar Association ; he has served several terms on its Executive Committee and for many terms as a member of its General Council. Later he was the President of the Association of American Law Schools. His personal contributions to the advancement of the science of law have been principally in the field of international law. For some years he was chairman of the standing committee on that branch of law of the American Bar Association, and took part in founding the American Association of International Law. He is a member of the International Law Association of London and has served for two terms on its Council, and was selected as a Vice-President. One of his papers read at the meetings of that Association was 4 ‘The Doctrine of Continuous Voyage, ' ’ which has since been published in the Harvard Law Review. He is a Membre Correspondant de L ' lnstitul de Droit Compare of Brussels and a member of the Board of Editors of the American Journal of International Law. As a result of his writings and his membership in these various societies, he has formed an extensive acquaintance with prominent men in this country and abroad, with whom he has carried on an extensive correspondence. First and foremost. Dean Gregory will long be remembered by the students of the University as an excellent teacher of law and as a man of superior administrative ability. His methodical presentation of subjects and the clearness of his exposition have commanded the respect and admiration of his students, while his strictness in requiring substantial attainments, coupled with an unfailing and charming personal concern for the students 1 welfare, not only during their course of study, but during subsequent experi- ence as practitioners, have commanded and secured the admiration and affection of both students and alumni of the University. 7 ®hf Ifoarfr of ©rasters tri Charles Herbert Stockton, LL.

Waggaman OCTOR SAMUEL J. WAGGAMAN was born in Washington D, C, October 26th, 1 844- His early youth was spent chiefly on his father ' s farm in Fairfax County, Virginia, He attended private schools in the neighborhood, and was also taught by his father, who had been a professor in William and Mary College, Virginia, and from whom his son inherited the old-fashioned scholarly tastes that marked him through life. At the breaking out of the war, like all the Virginia youths of his age, he cast his fortunes with the Confederate cause, enlisting in the famous “Mosby’s Command " and following that daring leader until captured in 1863 and held prisoner at Fort Warren until the close of the war. He then took up the profession of Pharmacy, adding to it later that of Medicine, in which he was graduated from the Washington University of Baltimore, in 1869, Shortly afterwards, he settled permanently in Washington, and became one of its promi- nent pharmacists. He was appointed Professor of Botany and Materia Medica in the National Col- lege of Pharmacy in May, 1 882, and held that position continuously until his death. During his thirty-one years of connection with the College, Dr. Waggaman took the deepest interest in its growth and development, and spared no effort for its success . He held the office of President for the terms of " 9 I and ' 92 and was largely instrumental in the erection of the present building on I Street. His relations with professors and students during his long term of office were of the most friendly character. He took pleasure in welcoming Hhe boys " to his George- town home, and in accompanying them on long walks in the surrounding woods, where he would give them simple and practical lessons in his favorite science. Botany. His last public appearance was at the Alumni Banquet, where, though in failing health, he yielded to the request to deliver the address. He died from a stroke of paralysis on May 30th, 1913, deeply mourned by a large family and wide circle of friends. 13 In MEMORIAM THOMAS GEORGE PERSONS COLORADO AUGUST IS. 1 893 JANUARY 22, 191A CLASS OF 1917 MEDICAL SCHOOL Site § taff of the (Eiterrg ree of 1314 Editor Herbert Percy Ramsey Assistant Editors Ruth Estelle Abbott Donald Harrison McKnew Arthur P.

We are fitly proud of those who have bestowed upon the University such assistance as was in their power in overcoming its apparently insurmountable difficulty. I hat the institution has attained efficiency is the result of the indefatigable efforts of those interested in promulgating the dream of George Wash- ington. The idea of a National University at the National Capital dates from the beginning of our country ' s history. George Washington in his will set aside a large sum of money for the founding of such an institution, and pictured his dream of the new city on the Potomac as a center of a broad, national culture. I homas Jefferson, who drew up the first plan for the educational system of the District of Columbia, outlined three branches or stages of public education: the primary schools, the academy, and a university. Congress doubted its authority under the Constitution to establish a university, and took no action at the time. To this day the bequest has not been fulfilled. I he beginnings of the present George Washington University can be traced back to the year 1819, when Luther Rice, a Baptist minister, impressed by the splendid oppor- tunities afforded to a college in the National Capital, set about energetically soliciting subscriptions from all classes of people all over the United States for the foundation of a college. By the aid of President Monroe a charter was secured from Congress in 1821 for the establishment of “The Columbian College in the District of Columbia,” for the " sole and exclusive purchase of educating youth in the English, learned, and foreign languages, the liberal arts, sciences, and literature, " and with power to confer all degrees usually conferred by institutions of collegiate rank. The broad principles on which our University was founded are sufficiently indicated by a provision in our original charter to the effect 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 of the privileges, immunities, or advan- tages thereof, for or on account of his sentiments in matters of religion. " A tract of land on what is known now as Columbia Heights was purchased with the money raised by Luther Rice through subscription, and a college building was com- pleted in 1822, Among the noted Americans and Britons who contributed to the fund were John Quincy Adams, William F. Crawford, John C. Calhoun, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Bishop of Durham, Lord Ashburton, Sir James McIntosh, as well as a number of members of Congress and other distinguished people. The formal opening of the College took place on January 9, 1822, with the Rev. William Staughton as president, and thirty-nine students in attendance. Only the theo- logical and classical departments were opened at this time. Within the next five years, however, the law, medical, philosophical, and preparatory departments were opened in rapid succession. The first commencement took place on December 15, 1824, when three men were graduated before President Monroe, General Lafayette, the Secretaries of State, War, and Navy, and leading members of both Houses of Congress. The College showed a steady increase in the number of its students, and as early as 1824 had on its rolls one hundred and fifty students, representing twenty-one out of the twenty- four States, This number has increased within the past few years to a maximum in the neighborhood of 1,500 students, representing every State and Territory in the Union, as well as a dozen or more foreign countries. IB Columbian College owed its life and prosperity to the continued and unremitting efforts of Luther Rice who before his death in 1 836 secured for it nearly one hundred and fifty thousand dollars by subscriptions from practically every State in the Union, Later John Withers of Virginia contributing from time to time gave a total of nearly seventy thousand dollars. Congress during the first administration of President Jackson appropriated lots worth twenty-five thousand dollars to Columbian and a like amount to Georgetown, This was the only money that the institution has ever received from the Government, As was the case in so many institutions, particularly in the South, the Civil War prac- tically suspended classes in Columbian College, A large proportion of the students South- ern Baptists went to fight in the Army of the Confederacy and many fought in the Armies of the Union, I he College buildings were used by the Government for hospital services. In this period of its fortunes Columbian College owed a deep debt of gratitude to the benefactions of Mr, W. W. Corcoran who contributed liberally to the work of the institution. By Act of Congress the name of the College was changed in 1873 to the Columbian University and the Board of Trustees was made self-perpetuating. Begin- ning with 1879 the transformation of the institution from a suburban college to a city university began. The Trustees came to the conclusion that Columbian must be removed to the center of the city in order to hold the students, and the piece- meal sale of the College Hill property was commenced, Mr, Corcoran offered the University the lot on which the Arlington Hotel was situated but as the land in question was considered too small Mr, Corcoran was induced to permit the sale of his gifts and the reinvestment in cheaper lands. The Harris property at Fifteenth and H Streets previously the site of the Club House, was purchased and a building, considered at the time one of the most up-to-date college buildings was begun in 1 883. During the following school year the removal to the heart of the city was effected. In the Fifteenth Street building were located the classical and law departments and the newly-founded Corcoran Scientific School, In I 898 the Baptist denomination assumed control of the University by an Act of Congress which provided that two-thirds of the Board of Trustees should be members of that denomination. The non-sectarian character of the institution was restored however, by an Act of Congress in 1 904. By an Act of Congress and with the approval of the Secretary of the Interior and the United States Commissioner of Education the name of the Institution was changed to The George Washington University. This name was assumed on the promise of an endowment of half a million a promise which has never as yet been realized, A period of rapid expansion of the University followed. The temporary failure of the University ' s petition for the benefits of the Morrill Fund helps to increase our financial difficulties. The Morrill Act provides for the dis- tribution of revenue from public lands among the States to institutions offering courses in agriculture and the mechanic arts. The District of Columbia has never had its share of the benefits of this fund and George Washington as the only non-sectarian University in the District made its petition for the endowment. In spite of bitter opposition both open and secret from interested parties the bill granting George Washington the benefits of the Morrill Act was favorably reported by the Committees of both Houses but in the absorbing political developments of that year the measure was lost sight of. li It became evident that the property at Fifteenth and H Streets was too valuable a piece of land to be utilized economically for college purposes, and it was sold to S, W, Woodward for $450,000. The Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Mechanic Arts, and the Teachers College were removed to a row of six buildings on I Street between Fifteenth and Sixteenth Streets, occupied by ihe University, and the Division of Architecture was dropped, I he money from the sale of the University property was applied to the indebtedness of the institution with such results that the University was soon freed from debt and steps were taken to restore the endowment to its former figure. Under the wise and eco- nomical management of President Charles Herbert Stockton, Rear Admiral U. S. N., retired, the expenses of the University have been reduced to a minimum, and it is due to his efforts that the University is now on its feet. The University is now free from debt, and its income for the next five years has been fully assured. Formal notice was served on the first of February, 1912, by the Arlington Hotel Company that the I Street building would be torn down to make room for a larger hotel, and must be vacated by May first. Shortly afterward the University leased the former home of the St, Rose Industrial School at 2023 G Street, N, W. That the University is on the progressive path is evident from the steadily increasing registration and the interesting changes reported this year. Approximately 1,500 students are enrolled with a faculty of 200. The building on G Street is now adequately meeting the requirements of the Department of Arts and Sciences, 1 he mortgage debt upon this building is being gradually liquidated. An addition of a new and well-equipped laboratory to and the amalgamation of the Division of Architecture with the College of Engineering are vital factors in promoting the efficiency of this College, Increase in service rendered by the Hospital made it advisable to secure a Home for the Nurses, A suitable building was purchased for that purpose at I 3th and L Streets for the consideration of $8,000. Under the Department oT Arts and Sciences are now conducted, the Columbian College, the College of Engineering, the Teachers College, and 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 Law School, the Medical School, the Dental School, and the two associated colleges, the National College of Pharmacy and the College of Veterinary Medicine, The spirit which should permeate all college life has perhaps lacked expression at George Washington. An urban university rarely has the conditions favorable to the growth of academic traditions. These generally cluster around some particular building or spot on the campus, and are commemorated by observances which the privacy of the campus gives free opportunity for development. The college located in the city, and especially in the heart of the city, must be prepared to surrender many of its customs and traditions, from ihe very necessities of the situation. The freedom of a campus in the business section of a city is out of the question. So George Washington has from its situation lost much of its student life, and much of the tradition and custom that serves to commemorate the history of an institution. 20 ... iFarulty ...

Until last year the Presi- dent of the University acted as Dean of the Department, but with the growth in the amount of business requiring his attention, it was found necessary to choose another member of the Faculty to act in this capacity. Accordingly, Dr, Howard Lincoln Hodgkins, Dean of the College of Engineering, was chosen for the position. 1 he School of Graduate Studies, under the administration of Dean Charles Edward Munroe, Ph. D., has supervision of courses in the University leading to the higher degrees. It confers in course the degrees of Master of Arts (A.M.), Master of Science (M.S, ), Civil Engineer (C.E. ), Mec hanical Engineer (M,E, ), Electrical Engineer (E.E.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D, ) The Columbian College, headed by Dean William Allen Wilbur, A. M., is the academic school, and is the representative of the old Columbian College, organized in 1821. In 1903 its name was changed to the College of Arts and Sciences, In 1912 it was again given the name of Columbian College. It confers the undergraduate degrees of Bachelor of Arts (A.B,) and Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (B.S, in Chem.) The College of Engineering, headed by Dean Howard Lincoln Hodgkins, Ph. D,, offers the undergraduate engineering courses. In 1 884 this College was established in the University under the name of the Corcoran Scientific School, which was in 1 904 changed to the College of Engineering and Mechanic Arts. This year the name was made the College of Engineering. It confers the undergraduate degrees of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering ( B.S. in C.E.), in Mechanical Engineering, (B.S, in M.E.), Electrical Engineering (B.S, in E.E.), and in Architecture (B.S. in Arch.) At the end of the last session the College of Political Sciences was discontinued as a separate administrative division, most of the work being continued under the administrative direction of Columbian College, After many vicissitudes m the way of a building which would at the same time be comfortably large and convenient to the central part of the city, the Department is now housed in a building which is in every way suitable. It is to be hoped that this will form the nucleus for the establishment of a campus sur- rounded by all of the buildings of the University, As a start in this direction a new Mechanical Laboratory has already been constructed in the rear of the building. 25 ffflBt-OkaiUiair CLARENCE ANDREW KNUDTSON Wisconsin A .

Ever since our Freshman year we have been planning for this very thing We have selected our courses with views to fitting ourselves as best we could to enter one of the numberless avenues of opportunity open to the college graduate. We do not expect to win renown and fame immediately but in the years to come when we have achieved success we shall all remember it was our training at George Washington instilled by revered professors who were always willing to help us over rough places and who were constantly giving us little words of advice to which we are indebted for our positions We have been through the college mill — Freshman-Sophomore rush fraternity and society initiations belated smokers and parties, and all other functions which go to make up our student life. We have come home from such celebrations to study until the wee small hours of the morning so that we would not be unprepared when called upon in class that day. But now that we are about to leave all these things behind us we feel the pangs of regret that must inevitably result from such a separation We will miss the old University with all its pleasures and hard work; we will miss the professors whom we have come to count as good friends as our fellow students. It may be that some of us are going into distant parts of the country or perhaps into foreign lands but wherever we are let us remember the spirit of 19(4, and when called upon do our best for the University which has equipped us so well for our battle with the world. 29 GEORGE HENRY BASTQN A B l Maine Class Editor , 1913-14; Clan Treasurer 191 L12; Chemical Society ; Sl ull and Circle ; inter -fraternity Delegate.

Of course we all expect to be back again next year for our post-graduate work, but things will not be the same as in our " under-grad " days. In looking back over the last few years, the scenes con- jured up pass before our vision like the swiftly passing pictures of the “movies. " Well do we remember the old College buildings at Fifteenth and H Streets, and how we were wont to sprint over to the I Street buildings between classes in order not to be late at a lecture, for we were “freshies " then and didn ' t know better. Then came those days when we were crowded together like the proverbial sardines in the I Street buildings. Finally we were introduced to our present quarters and learned that the Faculty had added a course in athletic training to the already crowded curriculum of the Engineering Department — for " stair-climbing " is an excellent developer of wind and muscle. Our class is small this year, since many of our quondam class-mates made haste to get out into the busy world and graduated last year, while still others took special courses in “Girlology " and “Society, " and have tarried behind us. Far be it from us, however, to quote that old saw, " Good goods come in small lots; " we are loo modest. The Class of 1914 takes this occasion to testify its sincere affection and admiration for our Dean; may he live long and prosper exceedingly. We extend our best wishes to those classes that will succeed us; may their share in the glory of the University be a large one. 39 JOSE R DANS ARTHUR SHERMAN HALSEY Philippines Class Treasurer 1913 ' 14; Engineering Society.

Dean Hough was the first Dean of our College, and was principally responsible for its success and steadily increasing enrollment. After his sudden death, just before the opening of our Junior year, Professor Ruediger was appointed to the position of Dean, and is making the Teachers College a notable factor m the educational world Until this year our class organization has been identical with that of Columbian College, and now, even though having different officers, we feel a close bond of sympathy with our fellow-seniors and are sharing our last college good times with them as during the past four years And moreover, I ask you, would any Senior Play be a success with- out our talented actress, Genevieve F rizzell ? Outside College, Miss Qssire and Miss Carpenter have helped to spread our fame abroad: and inside College we have a fair share of honors, including three members of the Sphinx Honor Society, We have good foundation, we think, for the hope that the Class of 1914 will accomplish great things and bring fame to its Alma Mater, 43 GERTRUDE VERONICA BROWNE II B I District of Columbia Class Editor 1913-14; Senior P ay, 1913-14; Basketball 1912- 13-14; Soror- ity Editor Cherry Tree, 1912-13; Y.

So we are compelled, in seif-defense and also that the real truth may be known, to make the assertion that the classic halls of G. W, U, were never trod by a class with such a wealth and variety of talent Our transcendant abilities have been applied to a diverse multitude of activities, and our attainments in all fields of endeavor have been of such magnitude as totally to eclipse the puny endeavors of other classes. We wish to give every class all that is justly due it, but though we deplore the present state of affairs that compels us to make such statements, we adhere to our previous assertion ; in fact, we reiterate it with almost profane vehemence, that the class of 1 1 5 is the greatest class G. W U ever had. One of the dominating characteristics of our class is our spirit of accomplishment. Whenever we determine to attain a certain object, we apply all our energies to it, and never desist from our efforts until we have succeeded even to compelling Professor Henning to give us an “A " in French We are full of the stick-to-it spirit, as well as of love for our Alma Mater, and we have labored diligently to place G. W. U. on a plane with other colleges in respect to student activities. We have labored for the re-establishment of al! athletics, for a revival of the Upper Class Dance, and by our own little dances have endeavored to bring about a closer union of the students We have established a Men ' s Glee Club and a Women ' s Glee Club We have held our own in scholastics, in fact, we all expect to graduate cum laude. Even when we don ' t know much about a subject, we have the happy faculty of so impressing the professor with the depth of o ur knowledge that he is immediately convinced of our worthiness to receive an A. " We are even sorry that there is no higher mark than " A, " for we feel confident that we would attain it with but the minimum of increased effort. Individually, we are all stars of the first magnitude; collectively, we form the most luminous constellation in G. W. U. Other classes may flash across the collegiate skies in meteoric grandeur, but their brilliance soon fades, while we still shine on with undimm- ishcd brightness, lighting the pathway of success for future classes to follow. 47 f Ettgmrrrfi S soon as the grand old Class of 1915 first entered the numerous portals of the I Street buildings in the Fall of 1911, George Washington stock jumped to double its value and has been booming ever since as a result of our presence in the College, We were immediately hailed as the leaders of the University, On the night of our first meeting, the Class of ! 4, quick to recognize our undoubted merits, entertained us at a reception at (or near) the Arlington, As an instance of our ability, under the leadership of " Bill ' Cannon, “the big gun,“ we held the first F reshman Prom which was a financial as well as social success. In our Sophomore year we first ventured into the back room, where we learned to produce a noise with only a candle and a piece of stove-pipe. It was at that time that we were instructed by our honored Dean in the theory of points of osculation and kindred matters. In this year, too, we first attained the realms of higher knowledge-four floors up. Here some of us learned the art of squinting through a transit, while others tried to solve the question, “Why is a cam)” Of course we continued to lead in student activities. In recognition of our importance our President was made Secretary of the Class Presidents’ Association, We also furnished three men to the Basketball team which had just been organized. It was as Juniors that we showed what we really had in us. No student activity is without a Junior Engineer to see that it is a success. To show how widespread are our endeavors, let me tell briefly what a few of us are doing. Our energetic President, George Degenhardt, besides being Vice-President of the Engineering Society, is Treasurer of the Association of Class Presidents and a member of the Editorial Board of THE Cherry Tree; and besides George is taking Structures and Mechanics, We are proud, too, of “Jim ' 1 Nash, who made the Basketball team a possibility and brought it through its first season a financial success, besides playing a strong game on the squad. He was ably assisted by our colleagues, Tom Murray and George Degnan, the former winning his “W " on the team. Then our Vice-President, Henry Kruger, is President of the Inter-Fraternity Association, and a leading light in the domains of the fishwalk and the hesitation. Besides these, we have representatives on the staff of “The Hatchet, “ and among the officers of the Athletic Association. The majority of the officers of the Engineering Society — Degenhardt, Heron, Rose and HarscF — are Junior Engineers, Thus, throughout our stay in the University, we have shown our efficiency in every branch of student life, and have earned the title, “The Class Superior, 11 48 Junior (Enllrgtana Albert Chester Adams, 3 K..

C GLIMPSES SOPHOMORE COLLEGIANS AND ENGINEERS (Eollrgiarta HE Sophomore Class of Columbian College is so generally represented in all the University activities, that to relate our history for the ears of the present generation would be trite, to say the least. But for the edifi- cation of the F reshies and for their future guidance, w e narrate certain of the celebrated exploits of our worthy and distinguished members. Our splendid reputation began early last year, October 16, 1912, when for the first time in years the Freshmen defeated the Sophs in the famous annual rush. A little later we gave an informal dance in the chapel, and shortly afterward a most successful ball at the Raleigh Hotel. Our first year relay team defeated all others for the class relay championship. Though we were only Freshmen, a vast number of us even then became sadly aware of the responsibilities shirked by upper- classmen and undertook the burden of discharging them ourselves with the result that by the end of the year our class was strongly represented in all doings of moment. For instance at the end of that year half of the officers and most of the members of the Y, M. C A. were in our class. It is to be noted that the lambent spirit of the University is reviving under our gentle but persistent prodding. Our class this year has between eighty and ninety members working always in perfect harmony with one another. We know not only by precept but by practice that in union there is strength. Witness the members of our class who are working for the betterment of the school. Consult the roll and notice the affiliations past and present of our two-year-old organization. Does not this speak for itself? Other classes try to ensnare one into believing them far superior to all others; but we venture to wager that there is not one which dares to back up its statements with cold figures. Look over these pages to see. On the other hand we quote the following: In our class, which constitutes five per cent of the total enrollment of the University, are found approximately fifty per cent of the staff officers of The CHERRY Tree of 1914, over twenty-five per cent of the Inter-Fraternity delegates, approximately twenty- five per cent of the members of the Women ' s Glee Club, over twenty per cent of the Y, W. C, A. membership, about fifteen per cent of the Chemical Society, over ten per cent of the Men s Glee Club, and over ten per cent of the Hatchet staff, beside a goodly number of representatives in both men s and women s athletics and other student bodies. Figures do not lie. Draw your own conclusions. A more amiable meeting could never have come to pass than our Sophomore election of officers. This spirit has marked our whole year ' s effort toward collegiate betterment, and we have been amply repaid. Socially, spiritually, mentally and in athletics we are renowned for our superior prowess. May our successors profit by our example! 55 g ophmmuT (Enlinjtami Clare Abercrombie Oklahoma Julia Fredericka Albes. X li Alabama Women’s Glee Club; Sorority Editor CHERRY Tree 191 3-’ I 4.

It came to pass in the thirteenth year of the twentieth century, that many stalwart men ami fair women gathered together, saying, 2. L,o. we will choose some of us as officers of this class of 17. 3. And there came one who tow- ered aloft, even as the green bay tree, yea, many cubits stood he over all. 4. And they did choose him to be king over them, even he. Leetchu 5. Then, chose they Theodosia, daughter of the House of Seibold, to he his deputy, Hester Munger to be scribe, and one Steele, of winsome and open countenance, to keep the shekels and jewels. 6. This done, the valiant men of the tribe girded up their loins and fared forth into the highway, seeking whom they might devour, 7 t And it came to pass that they fell in with a tribe of barbarians called Sophs, and they laid lustily about them and hewed them down even to the last one. Yea, a victory of merit. 8. After the battle with the Sophs, the glorious clan of ’17 bethought them straight of dance and song, and they chose certain of them to cause sound- ing of cymbdfo and beating of drums that they might disport themselves in dance. 9. And they gathered at Rausch- eris, yea many brave men did gather and eke some score of beautiful dam- sels. 10. And a rnusico, Meyerdavis with his merry men did play sweet concord of sound, and they made merry, each and all. 11. The tribe has tarried but short- ly in this pleasant land of George Washington but they have made it known that they are here to stay and more deeds of valor are to follow, 12.

Mayhap, you have also heard how they were cut off just before the well- formed and carefully culti- vated bud had begun to open into the flower of such an architectural cult than which this nor any other age has seen the like. Of these things it is not given me to tell, as they are known to you aforetime. It was at this time that we were cut off and the great-hearted and kindly disposed Professor Bibb came to our rescue and carried on most successfully the former instruction in the studios in Seventeenth Street where much excellent work was done, 1 he next year the mighty and peace-loving Remey came to our assistance and founded the Remey School, which had its principle temple in the upper room of the Palace by the Bank of Riggs. Here it was predicted that we would review the next inaugural parade. Here it was we lived and flourished as blades of shears in the cutter ' s hands, cutting out destinies that should live forever. Here under the direction of High Priest Hooton the finest work in rendering orders was done that has been seen in the four quarters of the capital of the Western World, and here, too, ever-venerable Sage and Prophet Bibb directed our labor in water-color and free-hand expression with an inspiration and zeal known only to the initiate. But it was not given that we should long remain in these precincts. It was not given that we should see the inaugural parade from that vantage. Greater and more resplendent joys were ours, for the University had taken us back and set us up with pride and we had the backing of the Washington Chapter of the A, L A., to whom we render most hearty thanks. Twelve moons and yet six more moons have rolled around our busy planet since Architecture again became the mighty center around which the University revolves. These same moons have seen numerous and great changes take place among us. In the year last preceding we did mighty deeds and works under the joint leadership of Professor Percy Ash and the capable Hooton. In that time we engendered the pride of our hie, the Architectural Club, and for and in that we now live. This year there has been added new ' blood to our ranks and great possibilities are in store for those who shall continue to worship at the shrine of our Mother of all the Arts, for lo! have we not the most competent leaders that were ever sent to grace the faculty of any school of architecture! Have we not the great Bedford Brown, Professors Harris, Bibb and Hooton, as well as all the other central suns — -who are not ours alone, perhaps, as are these — to form the solstice around which we as individual satellites of effort can revolve and draw unto us the emanations of architectural wisdom and power which shall make those who are fortunate enough to have been caught by this powerful gravitational force, the greatest architects w T hich mortal-eye has yet seen 1 Selah. 71 Arrlntrrts £J3 Raymond Sager Hart , . .District of Columbia Architectural Chib . “Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry look Hart is the only one of us who takes his degree this year This is the result of his having heeded the call of Dan Cupid A genial good fellow, bound to succeed, Robert Karl Galbraith , . , Pennsylvania Class Treasurer, 1912-’] 3; Vice-President Architectural Club, I 9 I 2- I 3- f 4 ; Pipe and Palette Hugh N.

William Cranch, Chief Justice of the Circuit Court of the United Stales, at its head. Owing to the too ambitious schemes of its founders, however, it early became involved in financial difficulties and was obliged to discontinue its courses until it was re-estab- lished in 1 865 . Its course of instruction for the degree of Bachelor of Laws, originally requiring but two years as w p as then the practice ol all law schools, was gradually expanded, until, in 1898, in accordance with the recommendation of the American Bar Association, it was increased to three years. The faculty has also shown a gradual increase in numbers commensurate w p ith the expansion of the course, and the growing number of students in attendance. Beginning with 1903, the Board of Trustees adopted the policy of placing most of the important topics of substantive law under the charge of trained professional teachers giving their whole time to the work of legal instruction. Those branches of law connected with practice will continue to be under the charge of professors who are actively engaged in the administration of the law either at the bar or on the bench. In 1877 a year of graduate work leading to the degree of Master of Laws was added to the course of instruction offered. A special course in Patent Law was added in 1 895. In 1 900 the Law Department was one of the group of law schools which organized the Association of American Law Schools, and it has remained a member of this associa- tion since that time. This association includes forty-three of the best and most progressive law schools of the country and is committed to the policy of advancement in legal education. The Law School is the oldest in the District of Columbia, and the only local school which is a member of the American Association of Law Schools above mentioned. Charles Noble Gregory, A, M. LL. D., is dean of the Law School. The school confers the degrees of Bachelor of Laws (LL. B. ) , and Master of Laws (LL. M), 82 jftaniltij, Slam § ritmil ctj Charles Herbert Stockton, LL.

Associate Justice Stanton Judkins Peelle Associate Justice S3 Sarogpra E fall of 1911 seems a part of the dim and distant past, As time went on, and we became Juniors and then Seniors, our breshman days became but a memory. The last lap of the race has now been reached, and like a runner, we enter upon the final stretch with renewed determina- tion, strength and hope. It has been a great race. Some have dropped out, others will not attempt to finish this year, but tbe majority will in June reach the goal which is but the starting point oi another event — the Battle of Life 1 he training received in preliminaries, however, leaves nothing to be desired. With it, those who enter the final will go prepared to do battle, and make a name, not only for themselves individually, but also uphold, as representatives of il, the name of the Class of 191 4, and reflect due credit upon the Law School of the George Washington University, where with the aid of wise counsel, patience and earnestness bestowed upon us by our professors, we have learned the many and various rules which are to guide us. Lasting lies of friendship and brotherhood have been made, and though we part to the various corners of the earth, in later years we ' ll always fondly remember our Alma Mater, and ”auld acquaintance ne ' er will be forgot,” A history doing justice to the Class of 1914 cannot he written here, as room must be left for other classes, less significant and important. But a precedent might well be set and a history be written and placed on the shelves now made available by the recent re-arrangement of the library, where under-graduates could gel the necessary inspiration from its pages, and then go forth to endeavor to do as well. Suffice it to say that the Class of 1914 has always taken a prominent part in the various activities of the law school and the University as a whole. We have not spent the past three years m desultory and haphazard ways but have always displayed the most earnest determination to get all we could out of them. The professors will testify as to the desire to know the reasons for the rules, and a glimpse into either of tbe moot courts will afford evidence of our oratorical and argumentative ability. The latter permits of the most favorable predictions of future success for each and every one and the attainment of the highest honors in the legal profession. Classes may come and go, and we hope that future classes will continue to increase steadily in numbers, proving that the law school of the George Washington University is and always will be widely known as one of the foremost and best law schools of the country, but there never has been and never will be a class with more school spirit or earnestness than the Class of 1914. 4 HAROLD KNOWLES ACKER 2 X. 4 A I District of Columbia Lafayette College.

And I saw a way reaching irom the valley into the heavens and the summit thereof was obscured by clouds. And the way was steep and narrow and covered with pitfalls. And on either side thereof was space of great depth. And the way passed over three mountains and six times did it pass through the Valley of Death. And the first mountain was high and the way across it was hard. But the second mountain was of greater height than the first, even as the sun is greater than the moon. And the way thereof was more difficult than that of the first mountain, verily more difficult than the way through the desert into Egypt, And the third mountain was greater than the others. But its height and the way upon it could not be seen by mortal man because of the clouds upon them. And as I looked I saw a band of pilgrims an hundred and thirteen. And they stood in the valley below the first mountain, which they began to ascend by the path of which I spake. And their hearts were light and they lifted up their voices in song. For they were beginning the worship of their Goddess and they knew not tribulation. And I saw five priests who served the Goddess come forth to meet the pilgrims and take them by the hand and teach them the words of their Goddess. And many of the pilgrims worshiped her not zealously, and some stumbled into the pitfalls or were lost in the bottomless pit. And the priests were stern and they severely rebuked the pilgrims because of the hardness of their hearts toward the learning of their Goddess, And Lhe way grew harder and approached nigh unto the Valley of Death. And their hearts turned unto their Goddess and earnestly did they seek repentance and strive to learn her ways. And then the shadows of the Valley of Death did obscure them from my gaze, and I heard naught but the wailings and groans of their sufferings. And the pilgrims came forth from the valley and some of them were no more. One of the priests had abandoned them, and another one of kindly mien did take his place and they all proceeded onward. And again did the pilgrims forget their Goddess until they were once more nigh unto the valley. And behold there were weepings and wailings a second time, and when they once more emerged from the valley thirty of their number had fallen into the bottomless pit. And then I beheld the pilgrims begin to ascend the second way, and their number was seventy and one. And they had new priests who were sterner than the first priests. And one priest taught them of their freeholds in the kingdom of their Goddess. And a second priest did teach them how to plead under their Goddess, and his words were full of wisdom. A third priest did impart to them knowledge of the manners in which they should present the evidence of their deeds, and his words were not easily comprehended, A fourth priest of stern demeanor and severe did teach them of the justness and equity of their Goddess. But the pilgrims feared to question him concerning these things. The fifth priest, of kindly features, did walk beside the pilgrims during their earlier trials, and the sixth taught them of the penalties they should pay. And this is the interpretation: The three mountains are three years and the pilgrims are students; the priests are their teachers and the three ways are the years through which they must pass by way of the Valley of Death, which has been revealed to me as exami- nations; and the Goddess was the Law of which the pilgrims were learning, that they, too, might become priests and sing her praises. And the end is not yet. Selah, 95 JUNIOR LAWYERS Jlmtinr Eamyera John West Addison, P k Virginia A. B. 1905, A. M, 1906, Washington and Lee University, Samuel Victor Anderson, k 2. . . . .

Carl Monroe Wynne, » A x Missouri S»9 £ p saw iGwuuera NARRA [ION of the events connected with the short existence of the Freshman Law Class with its causes and effects, will disclose a startling degree of sameness. In fact with the exception of one class meeting a gathering of almost the entire personnel of the class called for the purpose of electing class officers we have been very well satisfied to meet twelve hours a week in the lecture room with our professors occupying the chairs of Torts Property Domestic Relations Criminal Law and Procedure and Contracts. During the past months many pleasant and valuable moments have been spent in the company of our esteemed instructors. The courses have all been pursued with a diligent persistence. At limes Professor Earnest has reiterated the statement that he expected the class to read only the black-letter type in the textbook of Clark ' s Criminal Law; Professor Fraser has brought us from the chaos of " Confusion and Excession " into the lighted path of understanding of the fundamental rules of law in Personal Prop- erty, Professor Jones has repeated time and again the consequence and the uncertainty of the " But for ' Rule and the absolute test of the " Natural and Probable Consequence " Rule in Torts. Dean Gregory has absolutely refused to state positively the correct rule in any case in Contracts involving any difference of opinion, always citing Harriman Langdell, and Sir Walls Pollock. Moreover Professor Van Vleck has forcibly impressed on our minds the absolute uncertainty of any settled rules in regard to the liability of the Married Womans Separate Estate. " Through the leniency of our patient instructors we are gradually supplanting out disordered information with substantial and logical knowledge. After going more deeply into the subjects assigned to us we realize that we are doing more than preparing ourselves for a profession. We are learning to love the prin- ciples handed down by custom and decision for their justice their charity their philosophy and their logic all of which have been developed by experience; and we are appreciating more and more that comprehensive sentence of Hooker when he said of Law " Her seat is in the bosom of God and her voice the harmony of the world; all things in Heaven and earth do her homage the very least as feeling her care and the greatest as not exempt •from her power.

I he first course of lectures began in March, 1825, For many years the school was known as the National Medical College; subsequently as tbe Depart menl of Medicine of the Columbian University. When first established, and for many years thereafter, this school, like most others in this country, gave only a two years’ course of five months each. In 1878 this course was lengthened by tbe establishment of a spring session devoted to lectures in certain special subjects. In 1879 tbe course was lengthened to seven months and attendance upon three annual sessions required, and in 1893 attendance on lour annual courses was made obligatory upon all candidates for the degree of Doctor o( Medicine. In order to increase the facilities for actual bedside teaching, the University 1 [capital and the University Dispensary were established in 1 898 and made a part of the Department of Medicine. In 1902 the old Medical ( allege, in which the exercises had been held since 1867, gave place to the present large and commodious structure, I he Department of Medicine now consists of the three essentials to a modern medical school, namely, the Medical School proper, with its laboratories, lecture rooms, library, museum, etc., the University Hospital, and the University Dispensary, These three are all completely correlated and administered according to the most modern and approved methods for the government of medical colleges, I he Medical Department of the University has been for several years a member of the Association of American Medical Colleges. It is one of the medical colleges designated as " Class AT ' by the American Medical Association, and it is accredited for all its work by the Combined (Royal) Medical Examining Boards in England. On the first of January of the present year a regulation went into effect which requires one year of college work before entrance in the Medical School. I hese lacis guarantee the character of the work done by the College and insures its students and graduates all the advantages which accrue from such association and recognition. 114 Hurtura EN the different professors opened their preliminary lectures in the Fall of 1910 they faced a class that was larger than any previous one in the history of the school. A casual glance from the platform over the sea of noble brows must immediately have convinced these lecturers that their task of teaching even the elementary rules of medicine would be a task indeed. However, like Demosthenes addressing the mob at Athens, they labored with great patience, a quality that a medical professor must indeed possess. They were evidently able to get enthusiasm from some source or other, because, as most of us know. Professor M uniroe would regularly give a flight of oratory, especially after one of his numerous trips to the Cosmos Club, and would forget to come back to earth until he had given us some of his latest theories regarding the elusive hydrocarbon. Soon after the class was organised it began to be demon- strated by some of the live ones that, had the stein flourished in the days of Jacob, he probably would never have met Rebecca at the well. Several of our embryonic medical lights sallied forth rather early in a blaze of glory, wooing Bacchus with much fervor, the courtship culminating only with the final exam in anatomy. At the commencement of the second year we found the interior of the building remodeled and redecorated which was indeed a sight good for sore eyes. A few of our first year class failed to return, but their places were taken by new students bringing credits from other schools. The first half of the year we were greeted by Dr. Briggs and his inimitable stories, moral and otherwise, which will long be remembered by the most of us. This brief resume brings us to our Junior year, when, with the addition of a fine bunch of fellows, our number was swelled to almost its original quota. Our class during this year went through the melting-pot, came out refined, and was gradually molded into a well-defined unit, preparatory to our elevation to the seat of the mighty Senior, a year which we approached with many regrets, realizing that it was but the beginning ol the end. Many close friendships have sprung up among us during our four years at George Washington. Some of them will live and flourish forever, others will become mere memories as the years go by. Let us all remember that, to support loyally and to encourage our alumni, we must keep alive many friendships that would otherwise pass into oblivion. As the years fade into memories let us forget all but the pleasant things of our life while in college. May we at some time in the near future meet around the festive board and make the welkin ring with “Auld Lang Syne, 1 and may our inspiration for work and service in the world be guided by the love for our Alma Mater, 1 hese words she is whispering to each son, ' Those things that ye have learn ed and received, heard and seen, them do, and the god of peace and good fortune be with you.

For proof of this we cite a few of the publications of the Class: (1) The Pitch of Vibrations of Oscillating Amboceptors oi the Twenty-third Order, by Rowlgentz; (2) The Color of a Suspen- sion of Decorticated Complements in Sp, Ferment! as seen at 2:30 A. ML, Kenpull ; (3) Some Must Be Bald as Proven By Logic McKinson and Dongenl and many others Let it not be forgotten however that many of our best men have not yet published the results of their labors. We defy anyone to find any record of the downrisings and upsittings of a goodly portion of such hours of devotion to duty It has been said that any man ' s usefulness and pre-eminence in one field is measured only by the extent to which he is able to browse and glean in other fields That being so we are doomed as a class to occupy a niche in memory with the immortals for we number among our members — past lawyers ministers philosophers surveyors navigators finan- ciers and engineers. You may say that a rolling stone gathers no moss The reason for the slight tendency of any member of our class to add any such botanical specimen to his herbarium is that we have all shunned moss-covered institutions and are gaining medical lore at George Washington University. 1 he present class numbers twenty-seven men of whom nine were added this year from other schools These we welcome and hope they will be with us another year. In union there is strength ; it is better Lo hang together than to hang separately. Three of our number have been Class Presidents within the past three years 1 his was inevitable. We are proud of them Others of our number have served at various times as Class Secretary, Class Treasurer and Class Editor This was also inevitable Some of these men have extinguished themselves by discharging their duties under a pressure of 20 000 volts a la Merrill Others have been set upon by Ruffins ; still others are said to have failed lo assimilate the proper amount of condensed surgery of the Borden brand Speaking now in still another and perchance a more serious vein the class wishes to express its appreciation of the Faculty in its behalf It is no small task we know to appear always on time for lectures and clinics, in addition to taking care of private practise. The Class o! 1915 realizes the sacrifices which many of our instructors make and appre- ciates the painstaking efforts made for our advancement in medical learning Above all we wish to extend our heartiest well-wishes and God-speed to Dr. Borden as Dean of the Department of Medicine, May he long continue at the helm 121 junior Snrtnra Francis V.

Dark, did I say} No, for the bright rays from the moon, stealing through the window, illumined my room, and I could see in the pale light the old Class of 1 6 assembled m the lecture hall, and rapidly the past deeds of each member came before me. On the morrow the history of the Sophomore Class would be published to all the world. That is, that within the few hours remaining, I was to bring into use the obsolete custom of reviewing the past and relating the events of preceding years. It was only a year ago when we first entered the doors of our dear old University, Some came from high school, some from college, and others from different branches of business; but we soon became acquainted with the mysteries of college life and entered upon the long and narrow path to knowledge. I ime rolled by and examinations were upon us. lo some it meant a falling out of ihe ranks; to others, who were successful enough to escape the terrors of Chemistry and Physiology, it meant another year of pleasant associations with the Class of 1916, I he Sophomores must point with pride to the size of their class, for it has more lhan twice the number of last year s second year class. In our ranks are enrolled poets, prophets, and philosophers, each one of us showing his genius in his own way, for instance, Reuter, who, through his ability to entertain, has won the name of “Lauder 1 ' among the Sophs. Space will not permit me to go on, but I might fill many volumes and indite pon- derous tomes of the story of how this mighty band of men had laid desperate siege to the Dissecting Room, and even charged the dizzy heights of Bacteriology. I he time for us to separate again is near at hand, some for a few months, some lor long years, some for ever. But, classmates, in your wanderings through the land, may you chance to pick up some time the history of the Class of 1 1 6 and find therein memories of the days spent within these sacred walls, m SOPHOMORE DOCTORS g flplT0mm £ Sudors CfJ G.

After a few withdrawals we still claim about twenty-four more than our nearest competitor. Our members represent all parts of the United States, from California to Georgia, and from Georgia to Connecticut, and several are with us from other lands such as Russia. Sweden. France and Porto Rico, On account of our great size the Physiological Lab- oratory had to be enlarged to accommodate us. The camera men worried us to death die first part of the year. It was not long after the twenty-fourth of that notable month — possibly it happened on the twenty-fifth or twenty-sixth — that this varied collection of would-be doctors began to realize that the summer-time had passed and that school had begun — not school in the ordinary sense of the word, but medical school which, translated, means " grind. M The class very soon after the opening of school elected temporary officers to hold office until the class members should become more acquainted with each other, and a date was set for the election of permanent officers for this year. Having duly organized itself, the class immediately adopted the honor system after considerable discussion in regard to the rules and regulations to govern it. The class organized a football team which was to play the Sophs, who had chal- lenged them, but the game did not materialize. We refuse to take the blame for that. All we say is that we had a star team with such men as Sullivan, Murphy, Mac Dowell (our athletic advisor, by the way), Legge, Cobham, Gill, and too many others to mention. We have several celebrities in the class: Elmore, who can ' t say the w f ord “here: " Hecht, who can see an upper and lower extremity to any molecular formula, and can sec arteries running up and down; Hines, the boy with the hair lip; Manus who recognizes frog skin by its hair follicles; Snider, who can write English on the bulletin board and yet not be understood. The death of Thomas George Persons, of Colorado, was deeply felt by the whole class, for though he was with us but a short time, he had made many fast Friends and was greatly liked by all.

They are integral parts of the Medical School, are controlled entirely by the Faculty of Medicine, and are used primarily in instructing students in clinical work. The Hospital and Dispensary adjoin the Medical School and are easily accessible to the students. The Hospital has a capacity for one hundred and twenty-five patients, with forty rooms for private cases. The Dispensary has a large out-patient service, to which several thousand visits are made annually. Over thirteen per cent of the work done by the Hospital is on charity cases, for which no remuneration is received, A three years ' course in nursing is given here under the direction of Miss Mary W, Glascock. This year there are nearly fifty nurses enrolled in this course, John Bruce Copping is Superintendent of the Hospital, 133 rtuur NitrBfB MARY W, GLASCOCK Superintendent of Hunts GERTRUDE MARY ADAMS New Y or It Chm Editor, 1913 14; Ohm President, 1912-13 ' ' Gertie ' absolutely refuses to get rallied.

Tayloes, etc., bul the Lees, Tayloes, etc. don I know anything aboui it, just ihe same she is a good girl, a good fellow and a good nurse. 136 OMEONE has said, “If a woman is peevish, adverse to work, poor with the cook-stove, and can t tell if a tree in the yard is blue or green, make an authoress of her.“ So my loving class-mates have made an editress of me. ! We are here again to hold sweet converse with one another When we were little Probes we were very sure we had the judicious tempera- ment to become Supervisors, and oh ! how we longed to be Seniors. Our dreams are soon to be realized and the awakening, as from all dreams, is not satis- lactory or pleasant. Six of our class have flown during the year; three were good prog- nosticators, considering matrimony a better investment, A fourth when asked if she could marry on twenty-five dollars, said she would if she could get the money. We are hastening to finish this history since the matrimonial bureau is so busy. One of our number has prophesied that she will receive the solitary diploma. We have all heard of the sun-kissed isles, where the sun comes down and mingles with the people. In sum- mers they are delightful after a three months ' sojourn in the operating room, where you have the pleasure of having your dinner cooked within you and where you long for a hammock swung in an ice-box. 1 here are the doctors, not one but many, one to turn on the gas, another to give the anaesthetic and then the Laparotomy proceedings begin. A tong incision from the chin down and another across and the secrets of the inner man are revealed. Such is the life of a nurse, which, though glorious, is hard. Nevertheless we are eagerly looking forward to Commencement, hoping that fate has nothing worse than a sheepskin in store for each one of us. 137 JUNIOR NURSES Junior Nnnmi Etta Nelson Anderson Sweden Mildred K..

With the change of the name of the University in 1904, the Dental School was designated as the Department of Dentistry of the George Washington University. In 1914 the Board of Trustees caused the name to be made simply the Dental School of the George Washington University. 1 he course of instruction originally extended over two years of five months each. With the general growing need for more complete instruction, however, the George Washington University, in common with other schools, increased the terms to seven months. 1 his additional time still being found inadequate to keep pace with the ever- increasing demand for higher dental education, the course was gradually extended until it now covers three years of eight months each. The number of students registered in the Dental School is steadily growing, and this year it was about seventy-five. Within three years it should exceed the hundred mark. I he Dental School has graduated some of the most prominent dentists in the city. The Faculty includes many of the leading practitioners of the city. The student has at his disposal, besides the well-selected library of the University, the unrivaled resources of the Library of Congress and of the Library of the Surgeon-General of the Army. f he latter library is the finest medical library in the world. 1 he Dean, John Roland Walton, D.D.S., is a leading dentist of the city. The Dental School confers the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) for the completion of the prescribed course. 145 3Farultij of tlir Brutal § rhnnl Charles Herbert Stockton, LL, D . . . .

The class was moulded out of seventeen sturdy and most determined young men, who threw themselves ardently into the work prepared for them by the Faculty. As no history was ever created without a hero, Mr. Sterling V, Mead was unanimously elected President of the class, to lead us through the most obscure labyrinths. The Kansas boy and his staff entered upon their duties well-prepared, and did not spare any efforts in spreading the cement of brotherly love and affection in order to promote the happiness and welfare of each member of the class. And now approaching the end of our school life, we begin to realize that our past— the time spent in the University -comprises our assets, while the cold, uncertain future staring us in the face is our liabilities. June tenth will be the turning point of our lives. We shall then consummate the purpose of our coming to the George Washington Uni- versity. All those who will be able to furnish a satisfactory account of the time spent within the walls of our Alma Mater at this particular stock-taking, will have good cause to beam with radiating glory, and they will embark upon the sea of the future fitted to disseminate their knowledge to the ends of the earth. Before taking leave of our instructors who guided us through our course, sparing themselves no pains for our betterment, we, the Class of 1914, desire to express our deepest gratitude and to extend to them our hearty good wishes for their future. 147 SAMUEL CHARLES ACHSAN New York Ihtnking 19(3 an unlucky year for gradualism, " Ach " cast Ins lot with the Class of 1914, He is sure to he successful in his chosen profession as he enters mainly to ladies and babies.

With one or two exceptions all the members completing the Freshman year renewed college life and the Junior Class was augmented by three members of previous Freshman dental classes, among whom must be mentioned a particular fair student who having tired of being a Philadelphian wisely decided to join the students of George Washington, thereby increasing to three the number of women members in the class. Needless to say in these days of agitation for Women ' s Suffrage the three young ladies are holding down their end of the junior Class, After thoroughly digesting the itinerary for the present year and having settled down to real work, the first class meeting of the year was held October 7th and the officers were elected following the usual debate and argument. During the second rush for our goal several rough places were encountered, and although they were present throughout the year the class has managed to pass these obstacles successfully. Of course, as mere dentists we don ' t expect to alter the universe in any material way or to accomplish a feat as remarkable as bridging the distance between ihe earth and Mars; but inwardly, and herein lies the conceit ofthe Dental Class of 1915, we are confident, provided opportunity offers, that we can pul it all over a ' ' genius " as to certain branches of the culinary art such as making bullion, gelatine dessert, and double sugar. 153 Junior Initials Delmer Davis Brower, n District of Columbia Mrs. Wilmer M.

All were eagerly waiting for the gong to ring that would start them on the long course in which they should work out their sole ambition to become professional manipulators on the ivories. After reporting at the lecture- rooms and meeting the professors we were dismissed to prepare ourselves for the real work which started on the following day. When we became better acquainted with each other, we got together to organize our class. After numerous trials and tribulations, political speeches, and lobbying, officers were elected to lead us through our Freshman year. On November the first, 1913, we were guests at a smoker, given by the Psi Omega Fraternity. We listened to speeches by some of the University professors and members of the fraternity, and all enjoyed a pleasant evening. The latter part of January found us all cramming hard on Histology, getting ready for our examinations. We appreciate the way Dr. Hunter worked and strived for us, and when our course was finished we felt that our know ledge of histological structures was never surpassed by any preceding class. The thought of starting dissecting frightened us, but we soon overcame our fears. We were highly honored when Dr. Davis told us we were great artists with the scalpel. We all did well on our little daily quizzes for Dr. Davis would say, " You ' ve got to get it, boys. " And if we did not get it, we generally got a goose-egg, so we resolved to come prepared. Dr. Stout had his troubles with us at first, but we improved as we went along and his efforts will be rewarded by our showing at the final examinations. In the Laboratory Dr, Young had his hands full; he deserves much credit for the way he has converted some of us from a lot of pencil-pushers to real mechanics. Our June examinations are still before us t and we all hope to make a favorable showing. To the fortunate will fall the dignity and troubles of a Junior Dentist. 155 FRFSHMAN DENTISTS 3Frrshman Bntlists Charles Pendall Aspinall X est Virginia Class Vice-Presidenl, 1913-14; Treasurer New England Society, 1913-14.

In February, 1906, It became an associated college of the George Washington University, under the charter of the University, granted by Congress March 3d, 1905, pro- viding for the organization of colleges. The associated colleges are institutions in the District of Columbia organized as corporations under the charter of the University, having separate financial foundations, but educationally forming a part of the system of the University, The President of the University is ex-officio President of the National College of Pharmacy and member of the Board of Trustees, 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 and pharmaceutical jurisprudence. The Dean, Henry E. Kalusowski, M. D., Phar.D., is a leading analytical and consulting chemist of the city. Three years are required for the completion of the prescribed course, and the degree of Doctor of Pharmacy (Phar.D) is conferred. The present class is the forty-second to be graduated from the institution. 160 9 3h? llnarii of UJrusterB Charles Herbert Stockton, LL.D. President of the University. Charles B.

The election of officers followed shortly after enrollment and the same officers have been re-elected each succeeding year of the course, 1 he branches covered by the first year were pursued in a vigorous manner much to the satisfaction of both the Faculty and the student body, there having been com- paratively few delinquents, I he next or Junior year showed some vacant places in the original class. The class nevertheless retained the majority of its original membership. As the class progressed in the higher branches there w ' as apparent an increased interest and a renewed determi- nation on the part of the students to put their best efforts in their studies. Nineteen members returned for the Senior year, and now, after three years of competent instruction and diligent study, we fee! well rewarded for our efforts and fully equipped to pursue our ambition to a successful end. The class, it may be truly said, is a fairly representative one, and it shall be its purpose always to uphold the high standards of its Alma Mater and endeavor in the active fields of the profession to reflect credit on the institution and add to its well-earned reputation. In addition to the pursuit of its studies the class has found opportunity to introduce some social innovations which had not heretofore been attempted in the school life of tho institution. Among these may be mentioned the Inter-Class Banquet held at Rauscher’s at the close of the school year of 1913. The purpose of this function was to promote more college spirit and better fellowship among the members of the various classes, and it has succeeded in no small degree. Another and natural outgrowth of this event was the effort to organize an alumni association. Plans are now under way to perfect the organization, and it should prove of material benefit to the students as well as to the College. Still another result W ' as the holding of debates on subjects relating to mercantile pharmacy which proved to be of great interest and value to the class. It is earnestly hoped that these ideas will be fostered by succeeding classes. In bidding farewell to our Alma Mater we wish to express a word of thanks and appreciation for the untiring efforts in our behalf and the kind consideration shown us by the members of the Faculty. 162 JOHN GREGORY BIGGS District of Columbia Our most brilliant and most enthusiastic micro- scopisl (?), Proficient in the identification of blank mounts.

There was no introductory work to think of this year and real work began at once. When the first lecture was over %ve began taking inventory. Many familiar faces appeared in the halls of the College white sickness and “Hard Luck” had compelled a number of our comrades to drop back a year. We received a few additions from the junior Class of 1913 who were so unfor- tunate as to be left behind. Our President of the Freshman year, who also took the scholarship, turned his mind from pharmaceutical endeavors to photography. Looking a little further we found only one young lady present out of the three who started with us just a year previous. She is making a number of us fellows hustle to keep the pace she is setting. The death of our beloved botanist, Professor Samuel Waggaman, the oldest pro- fessor of the College, wrought a great change in the history of our class. Professor Hazen was the one chosen to guide the classes during the coming year. Botany was dropped and a practical course in Materia Medica, Toxicology, Physiology, Anatomy and Thera- peutics was adopted. We found it no small jump from “Exsiccated Botany” to “Kinetic I herapeutics. Microscopy was a new addition also to the various other troubles which were handed out to us continually. While there is no Royall road to the successful manipulation of the compound microscope, the majority of the students found the instrument and the work connected therewith instructive and interesting in every detail. The College is growing better annually. The “First Annual Banquet,” held at Rauscher’s at the close of the school year 1913, was an overwhelming success. It was the greatest step in the history of the College toward bringing the classes together in one homo- geneous body instead of their being separated and having each person the possessor of a separate and distinct idea. Preparations for the second annual banquet have been started. More are taking interest this year and its success is assured. Acknowledging that we are on a slippery road, and that great work is required for us to hold our position we are putting forth every effort to reach the Senior Class, Just whether we get there or not still remains to be seen. We will tell you all about it next year if you care to follow us to the “Grand Terminal.” 167 Junior puirntariiilii $ William S. Adams District of Columbia Howard Leslie Arnold .

One would infer from what one hears both in and out of the classroom that there exists a very high percentage of foreign element. This is based upon the tests made each day for “pure English, " We understand that the analyses thus far have disclosed less than I per cent. With this condition present the " density " is incalculable. The modified adage, " Everything has two sides, " was proved by at least one mem- ber of the class. Remember the paper? So far the pathway has been strewn with roses with but one exception, which occurred early in the year. Then a bed of thorns was encountered, and a few passed by safely; the others got bad “marks. " With the foregoing words of historical value, it appears advisable to close, lest we should tincture the class with discouragement. 169 FRESHMAN PHARMACISTS 3Fr?Blimmt piarmarista Norman R. Blue J.

More fortunate than other schools of similar character, at the outset it had access to the well-equipped laboratories of the Medical School and the Department of Chemistry, The faculty of twenty- five members, together with an up-to- date veterinary hospital insure a thorough training in both laboratory and clinical work. Owing to the rapid advancement of veterinary medicine in this country, and in order to maintain the high standard recommended by both the American Veterinary Medical Association and the United States Department of Agriculture, the board of trustees deemed it wise to establish in 1912- ' 1 3 a four years ' course in veterinary medicine. Pre- viously a three-year course had covered the requirements. The present Sophomore Class is the first of the new order and there is every reason to believe that it will meet witn unqualified success. The graduates of the Veterinary School are eligible to membership in the Ameri- can Veterinary Medical Association, They are also eligible to compete in examinations for entrance to the United States Army and the United States Department of Agri- culture, The further fact that it is one of the few veterinary schools registered by the New York State Board of Education speaks eloquently of its excellence and worth. 174 loarib nf dniBinz J.

After " Whit has found out all our professors know he’s going lo the U- of P. to see if he has missed anything. 181 SOPHOMORE VETERINARIANS GAIN we are here with our same crowd and spirit and motto, " Quality, not Quantity ' Having successfully gotten through the ordeal of Freshman exist- ence and entered the threshold of Sophomore life, we again start on the old road which leads to a degree Although we have found it hard, ; we shall not turn back, as we know to turn back means a loss and we are looking for gain. To gain we must plod on and hold together. Each step along this road means progress and we hope finally to find success at the end. Although we should like to relate our experiences as Freshmen in these lines, we are almost a f raid to do so lest some Freshman get cold feet for fear of the same trials through which we had to pass Although we passed through them, they were pleasant days; it was a pleasure to work with the professors and instructors, who were ever inspiring, pleasant, congenial good fellows No one but ourselves can appreciate how high a place these men occupy in our esteem. While the Sophomore Class is not a large class we are the better (or it, we believe, since we know each other much better. Then, too, we hold the distinction of being the first Sophomore Class ever in existence in the Veterinary School When vve came to the school the authorities decided that they wanted us to enlighten them with our presence for four years instead of three as has been the case with the previous classes We shall lead the school for two years Those in charge recognized our ability when they chose us for this important position This comes about through the fact that next year there will be no Senior Class, but only the three lower classes. Watch for the class of 1916 next year. The Class of 14, the " Scary Seniors " — and a good lot they are — have our best wishes for the future Once again we wish our dear old Alma Mater every success and hope vve will have a chance to help in all good things for her benefit. 183 gwjiljmttorr liU ' trriuarimta Harry J.

But presumably the dreaded fear of ’’thirteen ' ' drove away five of our original number. One other, who we hope will enter the lists anew next year with the Glass of 1918, was unfortunately stricken with typhoid fever in the early part of the school year. But in spite of the best efforts of the University Hospital corps he is rapidly regaining his previous good health. Since his complete recovery will probably result in a good subject for us Lo experiment on next year, however, we now earnestly wish him the best of luck (subject to change without notice ), but if he can be induced to part with two units of that elusive thing, he will find fair warning here of the late that is awaiting his re- Freshman ation. That a Freshman is one " who knows not that he knows not " was proved to us con- clusively at the outset of the school year. One of our now deceased, whose cerebrum could not grasp this fact, finally gave up the ghost, and his timely scholastic demise is cheerfully regretted, 1 he first dose having done its worst, we were surprised to hear that a certain amount of hard work and study was essential to the assimilation of the various Munroeisms, Hunterisms, etc,, that were being regularly administered to us. We studied Histology, Materia Medic a, and Anatomy until the professors demanded that such kind of study cease. Here we paused before operating on Chemistry, Botany and Zoology. What we did to those subjects was carefully recorded by each respective and respected instructor for the edification of those who cannot have the benefit of our personal influence. If a positive statement is demanded of us, we will admit that some progress was made by each one of us. We have become so imbued with the histological spirit that we no longer recognize each other by differences in morphological appearance, but by the microscopic construction of different organs. For instance, we take a cerLain member of the class and prove conclusively that he is none other than , because of the extraordinarily thick structure entering into the formation of his scalp, in which there seems lo be an extra layer of cells, forming a heavy palisade-like mass, designed, no doubt, to prevent the entrance of anything foreign to it, such as reason, thought, etc. It is not expected that our class ranks will be further depleted since we all have the blood of the Vet in our veins, and must therefore have the blood of a horse. 185 JfmUimau Tffrtmnaranfi George Stennett Glover England John Edwa rd Horbett New York Class Editor. 19 IV 14.

At last she summoned suffi- cient courage to enter. It was a large, well-furnished room with doors opening to other rooms on either side. The man who came out of the inner room was striking in appearance; his tall form was offset by stern features, yet kindly gray eyes dispelled any fear his presence compelled, " I came in answer to your advertisement in the paper, desires a stenographer ?” asked Dorothea, “Yes, I am. Have a chair Are you the person who Pulling a leather armchair across the floor, he eyed her scrupulously. Being a man accustomed to study human nature, he was able to read in the frank expression of her face an index to her character. “You ' ll be able to do my work. I ' m sure ' he said after a short interview. “You ' ll like the work here after you ' ve become accustomed to it, and the office is a pleasant one FI! expect you Monday, then As Dorothea went out, she noticed a girl across the hall who had been, as it were, appraising her, and who was vaguely wondering if she would suit the critical employer. Early on Monday morning the same girl came into the office, making herself known, and in a talkative manner gave to Dorothea a quantity of unsolicited information Her employer was a prominent and rising young attorney, he was about twenty-seven years of age, unmarried, a regular sport, the possessor of a fine auto, and for a boss he was a dandy. Thereupon, when the gentleman came to his office later in the forenoon, Dorothea Peterson was prepared to accord him that interest and curiosity which a man in his sphere arouses in the bosom of any normal young woman. The name of Alexander P. Clopps, Jr was one of repute in the legal annals of the city. His practice was continually growing and extending. To say the least his future was assured. He had an endless capacity for work and expected his stenographer to keep pace with his tireless energy. Fortunately for Dorothea, she had grown accus- tomed to long hours and hard tasks, for there stood the home which was dependent on her 239 It was not strange, therefore that Alexander Clopps should have suggested offhand that Miss Peterson take dinner with him on a certain night when he had detained her long after the usual closing hour Her frank and prompt refusal seemed to take him utterly by surprise. " Why not) " he queried. " It ' s past your dinner hour at home I’m sure Dorothea felt the color in her cheeks come and go as her employer stood waiting for her to make some move or reply. He ought to know as well as she did why she could not accept the invitation Her sense of right and propriety settled the question. But of course she could not embarrass herself to give him her reasons; besides, he was her employer, and — the place which Cleopatra occupied was not a circumstance to that ol a young and attractive working girl Glancing hastily down at her simple dress, she answered, " I ni not dressed to go any- where, — I look — -rather shabby " He eyed her sharply " Nonsense! But we ' ll fix that We can go to a private dining room, and no one will notice you there. " Dorothea became really alarmed. " No — no, I really can ' t I haven ' t the time and besides I ought to be at home right now I — I have an engagement. " " tm sorry, " he said, and there was an unmistakable lone of disappointment in the utterance Hastily putting on her sailor she hurried out of the door lest he should hear the heavy thumping of her heart On a side street, branching out from Five Points, stood a house in the center of t garden, which left the impression of more garden than house Passersby could not tell what flowers grew there 1 o them it was but a queer combination of colors and sweet odors that seemed to waft a greeting to each new day. This was Bobby ' s workshop; the flowers, his tools; their variety, his idea of the beautiful; their profusion, his sense of harmony; their colors, his conception of loveliness; the whole garden, his complete task. He understood each flower that lifted its face toward him. Their care was his aim each day, for life had deprived him of vitality and strength, and to him these flowers expressed all the blessings he lacked. His garden his mother, and his sister Dorothea completed his circle of life, and to Bobby it was all-sufficient. Away from her w r ork, Dorothea spent her hours with Bobby in his garden he explaining the language of the flowers to her, she bringing such pictures to him as she saw of the outside world. On this particular morning Dorothea ' s thoughts were wandering homeward and Clopps, coming in, surveyed her with a new interest, " What is your first name. Miss Peterson? " he asked abruptly She looked up rather surprised at this question and answered " Dorothea. " " German, isn ' t it? " " Yes, my mother is German, " she answered in an unconcerned tone " And your last name is foreign, too " he continued, " Yes, my father was Danish, He is dead,” she added, " fhat is indeed too bad Still you are better off than I am I have no family lies at all, " 240 She thought an answer unnecessary to these remarks, so she remained silent. He started toward the door, ‘German-Dan i$h, well ' Silently he regarded her with evident approbation. “I’ll not be back till noon. I’ll be in Judge Mackintosh s court if you need me No one could be offended at his pleasant, open manner, yet it was perplexing to Dorothea and she fell uneasy. Constant and daily contact with a man like Alexander Clapps, the appeal of his masculine charm, which was characterized by a refinement of body, the intimacy which grows by reason of a common interest — she knew intuitively that she must guard against the influence of these things. Having the confidence of youth and being untried, she felt little concerned. And then — Dorothea pounced upon her typewriter and the keys flew over the white page. She was a fool to imagine he entertained even a thought of her, and why should he) The difference in their social status, and too, had he not the little lady in blue? Dorothea had given her this title because when she first appeared in the office she looked like a cloudburst of blue which had lost its place in the sky and strayed to earth. Her picture in a small silver frame hung above his desk, and an experienced eye could have detected in that face a stamp of pride, ease and extravagance. Still, was there any reason why Mr. Clopps should treat her with cold indifference simply b ecause he was paying court to his little blue lady, even though her station be different? She folded the last of her letters in its envelope, and looked up from her work in time to face Clopps as he stepped in. In his hand he held a bunch of sweet peas, and a characteristic smile spread over his face, ‘ ' Aren ' t these pretty. Miss Peterson? Smelt ' em ’ He gently pushed the blos- soms up to her flushing face. She started back. “They ' re beauties, aren ' t they? Here, let ' s put them in water ' With that he took an empty glass, filled it with water from the cooler, jammed the flowers in and was about to place it on Dorothea’s desk when he noticed her stern features and down- cast eyes, “I believe they ' ll look pretty good in my office ' and mechanically he carried them into the next room. " I bought them from a little crippled fellow at the Five Points he added. For the remainder of the day Dorothea worked methodically, her brain having little connection with her work. What was his intent, why had he subjected her to this ordeal, what motives were behind these actions and a dozen other questions rang through her puzzled head. Now and then a whiff of the fragrance of the flowers came from the inner room, and they seemed as a breath from Bobby ' s garden. As she was about to leave the office that evening, he stopped her, “Don ' t you want to take these flowers home with you. Miss Peterson? They ' re doing no good here ' He started in the next room after them. It was a hot inward struggle for Dorothea, She really wanted them so very much for Bobby, Then, too, she dreaded the disappointed look in the face of her employer. Dorothea was suddenly aroused. What right had she to consider his feelings in the matter? “No — thank you — Mr. Clopps, I really don ' t care for sweet peas, " she stam- mered. " The — odor of them makes me ill. " 241 Hie busy summer months passed Each day was full of its various duties Alex- ander Clopps ' business was increasing, and Dorothea had mastered all the details of his work. She was not particularly clever but what she lacked in genious she supplied in reliability and conscientious work. Each day her knowledge of his needs increased and she was able to handle his correspondence unaided and on the initiative. She held herselt strictly to business principles, and any hints or suggestions in the way of gifts or auto rides, met with firm and determined rebuffs She was sometimes almost rude to him, and she wondered at his continued good nature These actions on her part strangely puzzled him, as women had never acted thus toward him, although it did not m any sense make him undervalue her services. More and more he learned to rely upon her She had that capacity for meeting all classes of people and treating them with utmost kindness and courtesy. In fact, she could soothe an irate client better than he ; she could give a convincing explanation that would satisfy the most anxious person and send him off contented She was really better at it than he, for she believed firmly in the truth of her statements Whatever her opinion of him was personally, she considered Clopps a man of honor in his profession, and strongly upheld his integrity as a business man Therefore, when an angry brusque- looking man stepped into the office one morning, she was ready as usual to smooth things over ' Clopps in? " he asked in a decidedly rough tone " No, he isn ' t Is there anything I can do for you, or any message you wish to leave? " she replied. " He knew I ' d be here this morning to see him, " he growled, " and that’s the reason he ' s out You tell him I said he ' s got to get those witnesses together in my transportation case before they scatter to the four winds, and I lose my evidence. He’s been footing around with me long enough, and I won ' t stand for it any more you understand? I ' m tired of waiting till it suits his taste, and he ' ll not use me for an easy mark any longer. " " I’m sure there’s some misunderstanding. Mr Clopps is very precise about keeping his appointments and attending — " " He is, is he? Well, he’s certainly very shrewd about forgetting his appointments with me, and I Ml settle his bill " Dorothea was growing alarmed at his enraged manner " He has so many things on hand just now that it is only an oversight and- — " " Oversight, eh? " Mr. Jackson planted himself squarely in front of her, pulled the cigar from his mouth " Look here. Miss- — " Dorothea drew back " I’ve known Alexander Clopps longer than you have, and take it from me, he ' s one of the biggest liars and grafters before the bar Why, I know it because he’s pulled me in He may be an all right fellow, but he’s not slick enough for me and he ' s not practising taw for his health, either. " He turned to go Dorothea had become thoroughly humiliated by his manner and conversation " Mr Jackson, " she began, in a voice that was shaky and on the verge of breaking, " Mr Clopps is always fair and just in the treatment of all of his clients, and you have no right to come in here and — " She could say no more, and started into the inner room. 242 The man eyed her curiously. “Well, say, I didn’t mean to upset you like this. I didn’t know you cared.” " Some girl, that,” muttered Jackson, as he started down the hallway toward the elevator. When he left she returned to her desk and busied herself with her work. Presently she dropped her head on the machine and a few tears trickled down the printed page beiore her. She braced up, but suddenly the tears started afresh. Alexander Clopps stepped into the office and found her thus. “What’s the matter, what’s happened, Miss Peterson?’’ he asked in surprise, “Oh, nothing, I’m not feeling good, that’s all.” “You had better go home then. I’ll stay in the office and the letters can be carried over,” he said. “I’ll just go out to lunch now, and perhaps I’ll feel better then, ’ “Yes, go on, but perhaps I’d better — He stopped. When she returned, she was her normal self again. Before she made ready to leave that evening he remarked: “So my friend Jackson called me a liar, did he?” His gray eyes had a merry twinkle in them. “And you told him what you thought. Well, you’re a brave girl. “He was very rude and said things that — -aren’t true.” A smile played across his mouth, “I’m no liar, but I don’t pretend to be an example of fidelity either. If you want to make good in this profession you’ve got to do what the other fellow would if you didn ' t, and so I follow the line of least resistance. Jackson will be all right in a day or two, and he’ll come around as gentle as a lamb next time. 1 hat’s him. He knows I’m as honest as any of them, more than most.” “I know you are, " cried Dorothea frankly. The color rose to his face and impulsively he caught her hands in his and drew her to him. “Is that the reason you were crying this morning, Dorothea, tell me, is it?” For but a brief moment she allowed herself to feel his touch, then she flung his arm away, and turned upon him violently, while a torrent of censuring words rushed to her lips. The excitement of the day, the consciousness of the thrill that leaped through her at his touch and the realization that hereafter their relations could not be the same, and that out of self-respect she must resign her position, all combined to add sarca sm to her words. She felt as if a crime had been unknowingly committed and that his touch had desecrated her. If the little blue lady knew this- — and she paused for breath. Her denunciation of him had deeply injured his pride, and he thought of dis- pensing with her services, but then he knew he could find no one as competent, no one to take the interest in the work which she did, so after reflection he said in a quiet manner: “You spoke of leaving me, Miss Peterson, I ask you to reconsider. You know you have become accustomed to my work and methods, and it would be hard for me to fill your place. I owe you an apology, and I give you my word as a gentleman that if you’ll only stay you shall never again be annoyed in that way. I had no intentions of offending you — I — -I, well, you wouldn’t understand— but let’s not mention it any more. I’m heartily sorry about the incident, though you — you misunderstood my intent, but please forget all about it and stay, and I ' ll be very grateful.” 243 Dorothea stood silent, eyes downcast A struggle was going on within her, such as all, at some time in their lives, have experienced She thought of her care-worn, tired mother She thought of Bobby, whose crippled form was a mute plea for help. She thought of the grocery bill her salary settled each week, of the rent, the gas bill, of the black silk dress which she had promised the mother for her approaching birthday; and lastly of the operation which must some day be performed on Bobby ' s useless limb, and for which she must pay the burden of the expense She raised her head, the maternal instinct overcame all personal prejudice. I ' ll stay, Mr, Clapps " she answered. Autumn was fast painting bright colors on the leaves. The wind was whistling merry tunes as it swung around the corners, and outer wraps w r ere necessities. The brisk, breezy atmosphere kindled enthusiasm for work after the laxness of summer. Dorothea still held her position. Each morning found her unlocking the door of Mr. Clopps ' office. The cor- respondence was heavy these days. Mr. Clopps was unusually busy, and between inter- viewing his clients, preparing their testimony, and pleading their cases in court, he had little time for trivial affairs. Foward the girl his altitude was always the acme of business courtesy, nothing more, Dorothea noticed with growing satisfaction that at times he was even brusque with her over the telephone. He came to the office early, remained late, and his smiles were less frequent. And, too, the picture of the little lady in blue had disappeared from its place over his desk. Her visits to the office had ceased. As the weeks wore on, Doro- thea s work increased. Each day brought new responsibilities, new duties, yet she took them up cheerfully and without complaint. She felt as if she were a part of the business, as il in a measure its success were dependent upon her Her work had become a part of her life; her employer ' s interests were hers; and these facts were not unnoticed by Mr Clopps, And his responsibilities were not the only ones that were weighing upon Dorothea ' s shoulders and causing furrows in her forehead. Little Bobby was daily growing weaker, and it was only a matter of time when the operation would have to be performed which might snatch him away from her, Bobby was the heart and soul of his sister. To her he supplied that lack of love and affection which is the rightful heritage of every girl and which circumstances had denied her. He was her companion in the evenings and his patient suffering had created in Dorothea a tender and sweet sympathy. Dorothea ' s salary had been increased but there was so many new demands upon her, and the specialist that Bobby ' s case required would not consider the case under a stipulated sum. It was perhaps on these things that she was meditating when the telephone bell rang sharply. “Oh mother, " was all the outcry she made and, reeling, she fell with a heavy thud. Alexander Clopps was at her side in a moment. When she opened her eyes he was kneeling beside her, frantically bathing her head with a wet towel. Dorothea started to rise but fell back, weeping She wanted to speak, but speech failed her, " You he right still and you ' ll be all right in a few minutes, and then I ' ll see that you get home. " 244 " Yes, I must go, " she replied As he watched the color return to her face he drew a breath of relief Can you tell me what has happened, Miss Peterson ? Is something wrong at home, or have you just overworked yourself? 1 know I have been letting you do too much of late ' Oh, no, but Bobby is very ill and they are going to operate on him tonight, and our Bobby will never — She was too weak and exhausted to say any more, and Alexander Clopps ' quick intuition understood the rest The best thing for you to do is to get home quick, and I am going to take you in the machine Now don ' t make any objections, you ' re not fit to walk, even to the car Just forget those high-browed notions of yours for once, and come along with me peace- fully, if you don ' t I’ll make you " She made but little protest, and they drove swiftly through the busy streets. Not until they turned the corner of the street that led to her home did Clopps speak ' I m glad you had a ride, but I ' m sorry it had to happen under such circumstances " Thank you, Mr. Clopps, " was all the reply she made as she stepped out of the car When Alexander Clopps entered his office the next morning he had to open his own mail for the first time in several months She had not come Her brother must be very ill He waited until the forenoon had passed and, receiving no word, he concluded to drop in and see if he could help the family. Finding no one at her home, he was directed to the hospital. Over a tiny white bed wherein lay a crippled little form. Dorothea and her mother held silent watch. Clopps stepped silently up to the bedside, and as he bent down a smile of recognition lighted up the little face on the pillow " That’s a nice man what bought flowers from me long time ago, Dorie. He ' ll be good to you— " and his strength and speech left as suddenly as they had come. The little eyes closed and opened as if already tired of their vigih The little face bore marks of suffering, and that the Reaper was about to gather a precious sheaf into His harvest was plainly visible. " I’m better now, don’t cry, " was the benediction the spirit left, ere it took flight. Three weeks past before Dorothea returned to the office Such had been her sorrow and suffering that she was in no condition to carry on the usual routine of office duties, Bobby had been transplanted into a sphere where he could no longer clasp his arms about her neck, and she was miserable, utterly lonely and heartsick. Alexander Clopps refrained from saying anything that might reflect upon the past weeks, and he was somewhat surprised when she stopped in the midst of a conversation they were having. " Did you really buy those sweet peas from our Bobby? " " Yes, 1 did, Dorothea. I- J didn’t know he was your brother then, " his voice was low and trembling, " or I would have done — She interrupted him. " And to think that I wouldn ' t accept them, " she cried. " Dorothea, " he said very tenderly, " I can ' t do anything for Bobby now, but he asked me to be good to you, remember that? " " Yes, I do. " 246 " Well I’ve always warned to ever since you came into my office, but you wouldn ' t let me. Now I consider it a sacred duty ' he drew her to him then. “Do you love me, Dorothea, care for me just a little? ' Her answer was hardly audible, but he understood, “But my mother, she needs me now, and I must — “ “Shell be mine, too, if you will share her with me. Don ' t you think I need a mother after being so long without one, and don ' t you think she needs a son more than ever now? " " Oh, yes, " she answered, “and we’ll both have you ’ It was then that Dorothea learned how what is beautiful cannot pass, for somehow and somewhere its essence has been transmuted into a nobler and stronger form. 246 THE ENGINEERING SOCIETY ®lie Bugnming §nrirtg Herbert Paul Middleton. . . .

Halsey Erwin Harsch 3 HE year just passed has been a most successful one for the Engineering Society, The membership this year has far exceeded that of previous years, and the interest shown in all its projects both by the upper classmen and the under classmen, has been most encouraging. The meetings held during the year have had two objects in view: first, the primary object for the existence of the society, the propagation of engineering knowl- edge; the second object has been somewhat lost sight of heretofore, and that is the bringing of the members of the various engineering classes into closer relationship. In order to accomplish the latter aim, the social feature has had to be emphasized, while it has been necessary to limit the lectures in order that they be not too technical for the understanding of the lower class men. The first meeting of the year after organization was the annual trip to the Bureau of Standards, The attendance at this meeting was most encouraging, over sixty men being present. Several smokers have been held during the year, the principal one being the joint meeting with the Chemical Society, wherein interesting lectures have been fol- lowed by informal entertainments. This has been the rule of the meetings for the entire year, thus giving the men a chance to become better acquainted. The annual banquet was held early in February at the Ebbitt House, and was a success from every standpoint. An innovation at this function w r as the uniting of the Engineering Society and the Architectural Club, This feature proved so successful that it bids fair to be repeated each year in the future. The engineers are agreed that our “architectural brethren " are pretty good fellows. It will be to the benefit of both profes- sions to associate with each other and learn more of each other ' s ideals. THE CHEMICAL SOCIETY 1 Professor Charles E.

Phillips Harry Thompson M, FT Walton ALTHOUGH still very young in years, the Chemical Society is one of the V strong factors in the University life. It was founded in 1 909 by a faithful I) band of chemistry students who stuck to it and worked in it until they obtained their sheepskins, and then by virtue of their attachment and deep interest in the welfare of the society, they continued their affiliation, Fo those men, Taylor Lepper, Pozen and Stewart, and to our esteemed Professor Charles E, M unroe, this page is dedicated. The society aims to bring the students of chemistry in closer touch with each other; to hold meetings at which students and others are given an opportunity to speak along chemical lines; and to visit the varied chemical industries within the vicinity of Washington. The year ' s calendar unTolded in October with a travelogue by Dr, Munroe. His talk was a blending of the chemistry of explosives as seen in some of the European testing stations with descriptions and anecdotes concerning the old world. Dr. Munroe was fol- lowed, after a little refreshment, by sparks from the anvils of the past masters of the society. “Beer " and “Soap ' " were separately discussed by Messrs. Giantvalley and Brock- well, respectively, at the November meeting, Mr. Thompson read " Abstracts " at this meeting, November, too, was the occasion of a visit to the brewery of Christian Heurich ; the prohibitionists were in the majority, and strict attention was paid to the chemistry of the manufacture of the beverage called beer, A talk on " Economic Microbiology " was given by Mr, Leonard in December, fol- lowed by the gleanings of the abstractor, Mr, Brock welt At the first meeting in 1914, James Norman Taylor spoke on the " Manufacture of Coal and Water Gas. " Mr. Engel spoke on " Coal, " On January 1 7 the society made a visit to the works of the Washington Gaslight Company and saw how eightv-cent gas is made. In February we had a most successful banquet under the guidance of Mr. Harry Thompson, We have more to tell, but it would be too long for the space allotted by The Cherry Tree, 251 0hr ArrJ|itrrtural ffllub James Lewis Keister. , , , President Robert Karl Galbraith .

Last year marked the reorganization of the Architectural Club, and its members at once started to give things an impetus. This year, with its membership increased, the club expects to do even greater things. A committee working under the direction of Mr. Harris, published last year the first number of the Architectural Annual . This annual was distributed among the archi- tects of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and the District of Co- lumbia. We feel that, after our most encouraging successes of last year Mr. C. F . Carpenter, Editor, and Mr, L. H. Freemire, Business Manager of the Architectural Annual of 1914, will have little trouble in getting into circulation the second edition of the Annual, The Architectural Club is working to perpetuate the architectural class in the George Washington University, and as we are certain that advertising will prove to be a great help we intend to continue this book as an annual publication. The purpose of the dub is to promote a feeling of fellowship among the architectural students. We try to hold meetings once every month, but we are sometimes compelled to let a longer period transpire between meetings when we are rushed with our designs. We have had several meetings this year, all of which have proved most interesting as well as instructive to the members of the club. Professor Murphy and Professor Brown gave several interesting talks. This year the Architectural Club has pushed a little further to the front, and when we say “Wait until next year, " we mean that the architects will be the real contenders for the flag. 252 M.

Slarrow Harry G. Beneman HE Pyramid Honor Society has the distinction of being the only male honor society in the University. Drawing its members from the ranks of those who have participated in student activities, its purpose is to band together those undergraduates whose records in University interest have earned the honor of public recognition. In doing this the welfare of the University is promoted and a strong college spirit is fostered among its student body. There is a good deal of work for the organization; its field is large and its purpose broad, but considering the fact that it is only about five years old its progress has been remarkable. Since the society is directly dependent upon those interested in student activities for its members, it is necessary to continue those activities to assure its existence. Student en- terprises should be continued, not only to justify the presence of an honor society, but to rejuvenate the University. And at present this seems to be the trend of affairs. But an organization like the Pyramid is rather a result than an impelling cause of student interest. Yet it is universally admitted that an honor society is a desirable and valuable asset to a University, giving it a distinctive and cosmopolitan air. The desirability of perpet- uating an honor society, organized along the 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. 253 THE INTERFRATERNITY DELEGATES (1% ifntrrfratenuUj ABsnriatinn Henry A.

Just what form this united effort was to take was at first undecided. When the by-laws of the organ ization were drawn up, however, it was made plain that the regulation of rushing was not in the province of the Interfraternity Association. Its first activities centered in a well-attended smoker at the Hotel Continental, Jan- uary 7, 1913. In the same way the interest was great in the dance in the Easter vacation. Consideration was had of interfraternity athletics such as basketball or baseball last year. The Inter fraternity Smoker this year was held at the University Club on January 15. The principal speeches were made by Admiral Stockton and Dr. J. G. B. Custis, Dean Gregory acting as toastmaster. A Dutch luncheon was served, and each fraternity contributed a vaudeville stunt. The In ter fraternity Dance was given at the Willard on April I 7. This was one of the biggest social events of the year. Supper was served at twelve and " Home, Sweet Home, " at two. The discussion of athletics last year resulted in the formation of a basketball league between the fraternities this year. The games were played in the gymnasium of the Epiphany Church on G Street. The season closed with Theta Delta Chi and Sigma Phi Epsilon leading the league, and one more team. Delta Tau Delta, with percentage of 1 , 000 . Baseball is now- the topic of discussion of the Association, and it is expected that a good season will be had the coming summer. 255 OJ-ite flatt-IirUeutr Aasonatiuu HE National Pan-Hellenic Congress, to which belong the leading women ' s fraternities of the country, took its inception in a conference which met eleven years ago upon the invitation of Alpha Phi to dis- cuss methods of saner rushing and of improving scholarship. Not only has this organization increased in size, but it has increased its scope, and today not only deals with the questions of rushing, but also stands to improve the conditions of fraternity life and inter- fraternity relationship, to strengthen the position of the fraternities in the college com- munity, to co-operate with the college authorities in all efforts to improve social and scholastic standards, and to be a forum for the discussion of all questions of general interest to the fraternity world. There are fifty thousand women collegians and alumni in the Pan- Hellenic ranks, working toward the unity of understanding and purpose. This congress assembles annually and its work is carried on between sessions by executive committees. In addition to its powers relating to its self-government, it makes final settlements of a dissension in and has advisory powers over local Pan-Hellemcs, I wo of the most important measures passed by the 1913 congress were the recommendations to the local Pan-Hellenics concerning uniform house rules and rules regarding mid-week engage- ments, and the adoption of the rule that high-school students joining a high-school fra- ternity after 1913 would not be admitted to a national Pan-Hellenic fraternity. The unit of this congress is, of course, the local Pan-Hellenic, At George Wash- ington this has been in existence a number of years. The officers are divided among the fraternities in rotation. This year, Elsie Yost, Chi Omega, is president; Ednah Rob- inson, Sigma Kappa, is secretary-treasurer. Every spring rushing rules are decided upon for the following year. As a unani- mous vote is necessary, a failure to agree simply means independent rushing. The National Pan-Hellenic Congress deems fines for the breaking of Pan-Hellenic rules unethical. They constitute an honor contract and the fraternity evading or disregarding them does more harm to its local and national reputation than any fine could inflict. Other work of our local Pan-Hellenic consists of making arrangements for the hreshmen luncheon which is given as a welcome to the new college girls just after the beginning of the fall term, and plans for the Pan- Hellenic play or party and for any social events decided upon for the year As George Washington grow r s, we hope to be able to take a more active part in working for her welfare among the student body and among those outside who could and should be interested in aiding the University. 256 Sljr § phtnx Honor oriptij Cj3 Gertrude Veronica Browne, . , . . .President Flora Hull Secretary- Treasurer Elizabeth Ferguson Frederika Neumann Genevieve Margaret Frizzell Margaret Posey Wilson Louise Worster |HE Sphinx Honor Society was organized in the fall of 1912 for the purpose of promoting college activities and spreading college spirit among the women of the University. Its membership is limited to seven, drawn in the proportion of one from the Sophomore, three from the Junior, three from the Senior Classes. Those women who have shown themselves to be most actively interested in college affairs are eligible for election at the May meeting of the society. It is hoped that this society will do much for the women of the University m the way of creating and supporting extensive collegiate activities. 257 Athlrtir Afisnrialunt OFFICERS. Alvin McC.

I HOUGH handicapped by an exceptionally late start and a small quota of student members, the Athletic Association during the past year has made tremendous strides toward placing athletics upon a firm basis in the University and re-establishing the major incercollegiate sports abandoned in 1910. The main efforts of the Association this year were directed toward liquidating the deficit on athletics with which the Association has been burdened for the past four years. By a very successful vaudeville show under the management of Harry G. Beneman and Erwin Harsch of the Association, and by a theatre benefit under the direction of Mr. Harsch, the debt was almost entirely wiped out and the way cleared for the resumption of all branches of athletics, the plans for which were formulated by the Association this year. Co-operating with Manager Nash, the Association conducted a very successful basketball season. It was deemed advisable to call off the annual indoor track meet this year. Students .

TERRV President James I. Burgess Sccreiarp Arthur P. Harrison . .T reasurcr $ QR the last few years the organization of the Glee Club at the University has been tried, but until this year the attempts were unsuccessful. Whatever immovable obstacle blocked the way before has finally found in our leader, Mr. 7 erry, an irresistible force of tremendous dimensions. The phantom of the past has made way for the healthy birth of a Glee Club which promises to provide a sound nucleus for a permanent institution of the first rank. The talent has very likely been here always, but it takes a great amount of serious effort to assemble it. It isn ' t always an easy matter to persuade men who have worked all day, to cut laboratory in the evening to run over a few songs with the bunch. Nor is it easy to request a fellow to break a date with some lovely mortal of the opposite gender, to help with the harmony. It is indeed a task worthy of mention to start anything, but to organize a Glee Club is the hottest kind of work. But the Club has finally become a materialized creation, and after only a few months existence has been conceded to be a thing of permanency. The Hatchet has been following our progress with a critical eye and has found that we are good (the morning and the evening being the steenth day). We participated in the benefit given to wipe out the athletic deficit, and we have served continually as a source of joy to the draftsmen on the floor above us on practice nights. Our membership has increased four-fold, and our age is not yet one. Next year we shall see what we shall see, and shall hear what we shall hear. Keep your eye on the Glee Club, and your ears open. £63 THE YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION Ruth Vesta Pope , 14 . President Frederika Neumann, ' [ 5 Vice-President Elizabeth Weber, 16 .Secretary Margaret Wilson, 14 Treasurer ,s j||HE beginning of the new college year ushered in an era of renewed activity §j on the part of the members of the University branch of the Young Women ' s H Christian Association. The work of the Association began several days before the opening of the fall term, when a number of the girls came down to welcome the new students as they came to register, and to make them feel at home. I he two motives set up as the guiding principles of the Association this year are the maintenance of the religious activities of the University, and the promotion of the social spirit. Both of these have been successfully carried out through the enthusiastic co-operation of its members. The outside speakers for chapel services on Mondays have been supplanted by the girls themselves, and the talks have been a source of interest and benefit to those who gave them as well as to the audi- ence. In spite of the fact that affiliation with the main Y, W. C. A. was considered inadvisable by reason of the religious discriminations which would have had to be made, they have very kindly sent one of their best and most efficient religious workers to the College to conduct the Bible Study Class, The class has enjoyed many profitable hours under the wise guidance and direction of Miss Finney. The course was a most interesting and beneficial one to all who attended the meetings of the class, and we wish to express our appreciation to Miss Finney for her kind interest and her unfailing regularity in meeting the class every Friday at one o ' clock. There is so little opportunity for social life and for bringing all the girls together that the furthering of the social intercourse has been one of the prime motives this year. There have been several parties, and of them the baby-party of December thirteenth is declared by many to have been the best and the greatest success. This is undoubtedly due to the originality of the plan, and the ingenuity of Miss Joanna Best and Miss Ednah Robin- son, who head the social committee. Since the affiliation with the main Y . W. C. A. would have deprived us of the aid and support o( some of our ablest and most faithful workers, it was considered more advisable to retain our old position of independence. This necessitated a constitution for the efficient administration of the organization. The existence of this important document we owe to the faithful and persevering efforts of the president, and it serves as just another instance of the enthusiasm she has shown for the welfare of the Association. 265 THE CLASS PRESIDENTS ASSOCIATION Wfo Asaoriation of (Cl ass rrstimts $ Jerome T.

It is composed of the Presidents of every class of the University ; there are now twenty-eight classes, namely: Columbian College, four; Teachers College, one; Engineering School, three; Architectural School, four; Medical School, four; Law School, three; Dental School, three; College of Pharmacy, three; Veterinary School, three. The Association held its first meeting this year on December nine at the Medical School. Officers were elected and plans for the year ' s work mapped out. The Editor and Business Manager of The Cherry TREE of 1914 were elected. The Association showed itself very active in the movement to retain athletics in the school, when it was threatened that we should have to lose sport Irom the school.

K, Reynolds Charles W. Rippon H. M. Savage HE Veterinary Medical Association of the George Washington University was organized October 17, 1908. It is a student organization, functioning in several ways. It serves to advance veterinary science among the students; it acts as a meeting ground between the faculty and the students; at the same time it promotes a feeling of fellowship among the members drawn from different classes, and fosters a love for the Alma Mater. At the meetings, which are held monthly scientific papers on veterinary science and on subjects of practical interest to the veterinarian are read both by the students and by scientists of national repute from various parts of the country, principally the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States Department of Agriculture. Great practical benefit is derived from these not only by their reading, but also by the general discussion which follows, taking up the details which may have been but lightly touched upon. Not only are these meetings and smokers held, but an annual banquet adds much enjoyment and instruction to the year ' s program. Members of the faculty and other distinguished guests honor us with their presence and add to our supply of knowledge. With the increase in age of the Association, we become more and more aware of the fact that it is a live thing with the students. The membership includes practically every member of the Veterinary School. The readiness with which every member responds in lending himself to the performance of arduous duties in behalf of its welfare speaks well for the present of the Association and predicts for it a long and prosperous future. 269 « « » .£ £ » £ « » « $« «$ Uaakrtball ASKETBALL was formally introduced into the University for the first time in many years last season, when a mere handful of students met and agreed to form a team to represent the Buff and Blue. With scarcely the shadow of support from the student body, whose interest had not yet been awakened and without the sanction of the Faculty, these few men deserve much credit for their early efforts to secure recognition once more in the basketball world. The sport, still quite a child, was ushered into our midst this season, December 5, with a game against Mt. St. Joseph of Baltimore, This contest, which was won by the Varsity by a 48 to I 7 score, marked the beginning of the second season at the Uni- versity, and at that early date it was apparent that the Buff and Blue had made a tremen- dous stride toward basketball prominence as evidenced by the husky material present. But long before this first game of the season, since the early part of November, a group of men answered the first call for candidates at the National Guard Armory, Under the tutelage of Coach Schlosser these men have labored incessantly throughout the season that they might give George Washington a representative team. Too much cannot be said of the distinct disadvantage under which the squad has worked. Inade- quate practice facilities and a lack of time by most of the men have been chief among these. 273 Coach Schlosser, a man of sterling personality and wonderful ability as a basketball player, has had the team under his direction. “Schliu ' ' is one of the best known basket- ball men in the city, having captained and played on the Georgetown quint a few years ago for two or three seasons. While playing at that University the Varsity coach dis- tinguished himself in the basketball world, having been selected as a forward on the all-star southern team, and on another occasion he was chosen center on the all-star team of the South. Few men in this part of the country can equal Schlosser s ability as a coach. This is manifest by the wonders he has worked with the green material that he had at the beginning of the season. Coach Schlosser is well liked by every man on the bquad and has the confidence of them all, which of course is one of the essentials of a good coach. He is keenly interested in establishing basketball at the University as shown by his eflorts, and there is every indication that he will be with us next year. Both games played with the Catholic University this year were lost, the first one going to the visitors by the small margin of two points, 1 hese two points were made from fouls, at the close of the game the score standing 25 to 23. I he second was played in Brookland and the score was 35 to 24. It both games spirited rivalry figured prom- inently. The Varsity easily disposed of Gallaudet in the first game with that team at the National Guard Armory by the score of 38 to 11, but the latter succeeded in turning the tables later when the Varsity met them on their own floor, the score being 40 to 37. The Buff and Blue lost to Loyola of Baltimore in a fiercely contested game by a small margin of one point, the final count standing 28 to 27 in their favor. 274 On the Southern trip, taken the early part of January, three games were played in which the Varsity met Virginia Military Institute, University of Virginia, and Wash- ington and Lee, The Hatchetites found little difficulty in defeating V. M. I. by a score of 20 to 14, but Lhe other games went to Virginia and Washington and Lee by the scores of 43 to 7 and 29 to 18, respectively. The trip was an unusually hard one, and at this time the team was in a crippled condition. The absence of Gore and Hurley from the first team because of injuries was keenly felt. Two other defeats were scored against us at the close of the season, one by Lehigh, 45 to 15, and the other by Virginia, 41 to 16, The quint kept itself in good condition and practised regularly three times a week at the Armory. The personnel of the squad remained almost unchanged throughout the season, which of course is a harmonic feature in the workouts. Of last year s squad but four men returned for practice this year. They were Noonan, who was elected Captain, Manager Nash, Murray and Gore, Besides the old men several new players of promise were on the squad and a Few of them have dis- tinguished themselves in the various games of the year. Harry Almon, known by his teammates as ‘Chick has played a consistent game at forward, never failing to star in any of the games whenever opportunity presented itself. To little Almon belongs the credit for scoring over one-half of the total points made by the team this season. Besides being a sure shot, often bordering on the spectacular, Almon is noted for his agility in clever passing. He is in the Architectural School. 275 fit Captain Tom Noonan Has made a good scoring partner for Almon at the other forward Tom is rangy an aggressive player; and handles the team well at all times. Noonan is enrolled in the Department of Arts and Sciences, Next comes Jack Hurley, a star guard, who is conspicuous in every game by his hard playing. Jack plays an all-around game slicking to his man with bulldog tenacity, seldom allowing his opponent to score. Beside being a married man, a fact which he nonchalantly disclosed a short time ago, Hurley is an engineer; Homer Shaver, the big burly Westerner, carrying two hundred pounds of grit and muscle, should come in for his share of applause, as he has proved a bulwark at right guard. Before this season. Shaver has regularly played forward, and for this reason is a capital shot and has shown himself a reliable scorer in an emergency. The men on the squad call him " Tubby , 1 Shaver hails from Oregon and is studying law. Alvord Gore, one of last year ' s men, has held down the pivotal position at center most of the time this season. Owing to “Mike ' s " lanky proportions and a lengthy reach he is well adapted for the position. He has played a good, steady game, and executes his signals skillfully and is a clever “dribbler, 1 The Department of Arts and Sciences claims Gore, To " Jim " Nash, upon whom the managerial duties of the team have devolved, much credit must be given for the capable way in which he has managed the team and arranged an attractive schedule. Owing to the extreme pressure of his duties in connec- tion with the managership, Jim has found little time for practice, but when out he has 276 worked hard at guard and has there proved himself a strong support. Nash is an ardent basketball fan, as is manifested by his earnest solicitation for its support from the students. It is rumored that Jim is studying engineering. Tom Murray, also of the Engineering School, familiarly known as “PatT has been alternating with Gore for the greater part of the season. Tom is a hard worker with considerable basketball experience and should prove a valuable man on the first team next year. Groesbeck, one of the new men this year, has shown up well at forward, and it is to be much regretted that he was called away from college to his home in Brooklyn at the close of the first semester. Groes ' will be with us, however, next year, and great things are expected of him. Hamner, Chapman, Patterson, and Brady, have lent their enthusiastic support at all times, and have figured conspicuously in the many practice games on the squad, Ham- ner and Patterson have attended practice consistently all season. An important event which figured prominently in basketball affairs of this season was the formal assumption of the obligation of the team and the taking over of its respon- sibilities by the Athletic Association. This step was deemed advisable inasmuch as the sport had received the sanction of President Stockton and its recognition as a prominent activity had been brought about. This was a great relief to Manager Nash, and there is little doubt that it was a step in the right direction. 277 On January I I iKe Athletic Association elected as Assistant Managers, George Degnan, Tom Murray and Wallace Atherton. These men have been active all season in working for the interests of the sport. There is every indication that the Buff and Blue will have a strong team next year, I hat this prophecy will resolve itself into a lact is apparent because of the expec- tation of having all of this year’s squad back again next season, with the exception of Gore, whom we shall lose at graduation. Then again, many new men of considerable reputation as players have mentioned themselves as candidates for degrees at George Washington next year. In speaking of the prospects Coach Schlosser expressed himsell optimistically, saying that George Washington would be one of the strongest quints in the country, considering the nucleus he now has to work upon. The development of a fast basketball team is a slow process, as is true in every other sport, and cannot be accom- plished in a season, but must often occupy a period of two or three years. Considerable encouragement is felt as a result of the showing that was made this season, and there is little doubt that the University has made a rapid stride toward attaining the permanency of basketball at George Washington. The fact that the basketball season has been a financial success gives us great expectations for the athletic future of George Washington, 278 WO summers passed without George Washington being represented in any of the annual competitions of the intercollegiate outdoor rifle shooting championship of the United States. During the winter of 1912 an effort was made to have a team entered in the indoor matches but it was not successful. At this time J. Ralph Fehr, captain of the victorious 1910 team, was re-elected. Near the end of the 1913 term a call for candidates for the outdoor team was sent out by Captain Fehr. Ser- geant O. Arbogast, of the United States Marine Corps, was secured to coach. On June ninth a large number of candidates began practice at the range of the D. C National Guard. By the thirteenth the majority of the squad had been eliminated and the following-named team was selected: j. Ralph Fehr, E. R. Tilley, J. A. Fur- bershaw, A. L. Stoddard, E. C. Rice, Jr., R. K. I hompson. Captain Fehr is the present intercollegiate rifle champion, having a score of 141 out of a possible 150 to his credit. In previous years the rifle teams representing the University have always been dan- gerous opponents and the team entered in the 1913 competition was no exception. Ten university and college teams %vere entered in the Ninth Annual Match. 1 he shooting was done on home ranges under the supervision of army and militia officers appointed by the National Rifle Association of America, under whose auspices the contest was held. George Washington University finished third with a score of 747 out of a possible 900, being beaten out by Massachusetts Agricultural College and Harvard with the scores of 825 and 791, respectively. The scores of the other teams entered are as follows: University of Minnesota, 743 ; Norwich University, 733; University of Pennsylvania, 712; A. and M. College of Texas, 694; Cornell University, 688; Princeton University, 685: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 641. Considering the fact that only four days were spent in practice against a month for the winners, the team’s showing was excellent, and the success was due largely to Ser- geant Arbogast, whose instruction was invaluable. The bronze trophy has been won three times by George Washington, three times by the Massachusetts Agricultural College, and once each by Harvard and Princeton. There is every reason to believe that George Washington will be represented by a winner this year, as there is an abundance of experienced material, exclusive of the members of last year ' s team, many of whom are still in school. 279 G 1 RLVS BASKETBALL TEAM (girls’ fesketball Luella Field Centers Genevieve Thomas Mary Tyndall Side-Centers Margaret Browne Theodosia Seibold Forwards Louise Worster (Capt) Flora Hull C uards Florence Taylor Coach Agnes Carter M anager Margaret Wilson :N February, 1913, a meeting was held to discuss the formation of a Girls " + ; Athletic Association Officers were elected and plans made for a perma- m nent organization. The following is a list of the officers: Flora Hull .... . President Leila Scott . , . . Vice-President Margaret Wilson , . . . , Manager Arrangements were made to use the Epiphany gymnasium on Tuesdays for basket- ball practice, and an enthusiastic bunch of girls soon began training under the direction of Theodosia Seibold From the beginning the material showed good fibre and in a week or two the girls were ready for games. The first was played with the Central High School on the opponents’ floor and resulted in a tie score of 6 — -6, It was a hard- fought game and the outcome was in doubt until the last second. To play off this tie Central met us on our own tern lory two weeks later and was defeated by a score of 6 — 5, It was now late in the spring and an exhibition game closed the season, the girls thereafter devoting their energies to indoor baseball and tennis 281 During this year of its infancy, the association had proved successful in arousing the interest of the girls and was prosperous financially, there being a surplus in the treas- ury at the close of the season. With such a good beginning made last year, athletics were again started in the lall of 1913. 3e% r eral of our enthusiastic players had left us at the Commencement ol 1913, but promising recruits were draw r n from the newcomers, among them being Theo- dosia Seibold, last year ' s coach, and Florence Taylor, of Syracuse, The officers of the Association and the plans for practice remained unchanged, and the girls began w r ork immediately under the direction of Agnes Carter, The result of good practice was shown in the first game, when we defeated Central 27 — 12. The schedule for the sea- son, with the scores, follows: Central (won) , . 27 — 1 2 Eastman ( won , , , 30 — 1 4 National Park (lost) . 8—28 Gallaudet (tie) 7— 7 Ingram (lost) I 9 — 1 7 Business (won) 20- — 9 At the time of going to press games are yet to be played with Ingram and Normal School. In every contest George Washington has played well and has showed good form, ! he interest and enthusiasm back of this new movement insures its success, and it is safe to prophesy that girls ' athletics will remain a permanent feature of George Washington college life. 282 Bniueraitu Irbatra DEBATING COUNCIL.

Summary George Washington has established a record in intercollegiate debating seldom equalled by other Universities. From 1905 to 1907 George Washington participated in six intercollegiate debates without a single defeat. In the eighteen debates since 1905 George Washington has won 1 3, By their dual triumph over the University of Penn- sylvania this year the championship of the East was at stake in the debate with Cornell. The popularity of the forensic activity this year was tremendous, both debates at the University being attended by audiences which filled the Law School Auditorium to its capacity while the first try-outs of candidates for the Varsity teams brought out no less than thirty debaters. 2S5 THE UNIVERSITY CONGRESS 0% BniwrHttij Cttrnigresa Speaker: Pierre Audrey Chamberlin Virginia, Democrat Clerk: Harold Leahy Brown, Iowa, Republican, Treasurer: Arthur Woolley, Utah, Republican, Debating Council Representative: Harvey Cleveland Bickel.

The Congress convenes every Monday evening at 8:15 o ' clock in the South Hall of the Law School. The house is divided into two sides, Democrat and Republican, Each side has its floor leader and the method of procedure is the same as that used by the National House of Representatives. From its inception, the interest taken in every meeting has been keen, due to the popular nature of the questions debated and the rivalry existing between the respective sides of the house, among which are numbered some of the best speakers in the University. The beneficent reawakening in oratory brought about by the activities of the Con- gress are gratifying beyond description, even to those who were most sanguine at the start, and presages well to place the University pre-eminent in debate among our institu- tions of learning, an accomplishment worthy of the ambitious effor ts of its members.

To say that j Columbian has had a successful year is putting it very modestl y Colum- ; bian not only lived up to its high standard of the past, but went beyond ■ it Columbian not only partially realized its hopes; it realized them in the fullest degree Columbian not only taught its members how to debate; it taught them public-speaking generally By applying the legal doctrine of “res ipso loquitur M to the following facts, the veri- fication of these statements is clinched: I Columbian is the only active debating society in the University (Several years ago there were three.) 2. Columbian almost doubled its membership, 3. Columbian for the first time arranged a debate with a debating society outside the University 4 Columbian furnished seven of the eight members constituting the teams to represent G, W. U. in the inter-collegiate debates with the University of Pennsylvania. Considering that approximately thirty men competed for the places, this showing is remarkable and is evidence of the caliber of the society ' s members. No one society has in the past furnished to intercollegiate teams so large a number No history of Columbian for this year would be complete without a laudation of several of its moving spirits. To the tireless zeal, constant fidelity, sterling ability and unlimited self-sacrifice of President Sanborne, Vice-President Haycraft, Secretary More- house, Treasurer Francis, Chairman Denning, Press Representative Marcus, and last but not least the indefatigable and patriotic Seltzer, is due the success of Columbian, Truly, Columbian was fortunate in having so select a body of officers When the final chapter of Columbian ' s annals is written and the Honor Roll compiled, their names shall shine forth with resplendent luster Columbian is proud of Philip Bookstaber, John St. Clair Brooks, FI. W Cornell, R C Shaw, John F Webster and P. B Morehouse (alternate), and M M Marcus (a lternate) who upheld so wonderfully George Washington ' s enviable record in the Pennsylvania debates. The team which met the Shahan Debating Society of the Catholic University of America was composed of the following men: P B. Morehouse, George E Sanborne and M. Manning Marcus, with C E.

Those present were: Professor Merton L. Ferson of the Law School, Iowa State Chapter; M. O. Cooper, Iowa State Chapter; L. C, Schantz, Iowa State Chapter; Ernst Otto Schreiber, Jr., Harvey C. Bickel, Frank R, Jeffery and Maurice Cohen, of the local chapter Professor Ferson, who is a member of the University Debating Council, was the first President of the National Fraternity, and has always taken an interest in promoting sincere and effective public speaking, especially at the time he was at the University of Iowa. " Admission to the Society, " in the words of Professor Ferson, " is based entirely upon men having qualified with distinction in oratory and debate. When the fraternity was founded, the question was raised as to whether men might be admitted as honorary members. It was settled that no one should be admitted to the fraternity until he had represented his University in intercollegiate debate or oratory, " A committee was appointed by Mr, Jeffery, composed of Messrs, Bickel, Shaw and Seltzer, for the purpose of arranging for inter-collegiate debates. The efforts of the committee resulted in the organization of a debating council and arranging for two debates with the Philomathean Society of the University of Pennsylvania, Two debates with Cornell were also arranged by the council. 290 ielta §igma Sljn (Eliaptcr Stall Albion College Beloit College Brown University Carleton College Chicago University University of Colorado Colombia University Cornell University Dartmouth University George Washington University Harvard University Illinois State University Indiana State University Iowa State College Iowa State University State University of Kansas Knox College State University of Michigan State University of Minnesota State University of Missouri State University of Nebraska State University of North Dakota Northwestern University Ohio State University Ohio Wesleyan University University of Pennsylvania Princeton University Stanford University Swarthmore College Syracuse University State University of Texas Washington and Lee University Wesleyan University Western Reserve University Williams College State University of Wisconsin Y ale University 291 THE UNIVERSITY HATCHET PLIUEHCD Bl-MI1KL IV 1H( |TVB iy£| y or WAftHrutiTon uNrvrnriT 111 mm HiiM-. ii ‘»t 4 y i ir nlw i aMmilk| fit nt kin f k«4tuj HMut I h« «« « •« • ♦ » I Hhi ' irtiOi all mil i ’» m r u Ik $« ■ " ’ in I’Ytu.. iui! uwMlil Tm - ■«■• ■- I hr Muunii ih V«nH| n fNJC i ; mj m» rijit §» mfr b ikr mtr in tl tent ' him rr- ir«nii A »miu | 1 ’Ifttrtfra MxliJ|j|iWJIiji muni ♦-NllH ' l. - mi rtritliiMi nit-til il tutiiuliiii r u u i,t i -mJ MM at |i|i.iHn -iT|| anil -nndnil i • ' nni 1 ii- uiiMMi-iiT 3h?

Players in the uniform of the Bull and Blue were scattered over the field, busily engaged in kicking, running back punts, tackling and the like. Everything was bustle and seeming confusion. Coaches were rushing hither and thither, keenly observing every player, encouraging or berating, as seemed best to fit the case. The dull thud of cleated shoes on the frozen ground, the thump of leather against leather as a punt shot spiral-like through the air, the voices of the coaches, now raised in impatient criticism, now lowered in personal advice, the shouts of player to player, ail combined to form a conglomerate mass of sound. ' Varsity men and scrubs, linemen and backs, captain and coaches, were grimly intent on the one purpose of getting the team into shape to meet Virginia the following Saturday. Every man seemed to be in the proverbial pink of condition, but there was something radically wrong somewhere. The team seemed to have lost its " punch, T for, after a successful season, they had barely averted a defeat in an unimportant game the preceding Saturday. On the surface everything seemed to be al! right, but the coaches were plainly worried, and were working with might and main to put the team into winning form again. hmaily, the scrubs arid ' varsity lined up for scrimmage, and several new plays were tried. But nearly always someone failed at the critical moment, and the play was broken up. The coaches stormed up and down the field, hurling profane imprecations at the players, exhorting, commanding, pleading. This seemed to have a good effect, for on the next play, on which they most relied to defeat Virginia, the ' varsity, with Dunsmore, the right half-back, carrying the ball, gained twenty-five yards. Again it was tried, this time with a five-yard gain, 1 hrice more it was tried, but each lime the ‘varsity line gave way, and the ball went to the scrubs on downs, " Cut that fool work and come here, " finally commanded the head coach, “and listen to me. If you stiffs in the line don ' t brace up and hold your opponents, Virginia is going to walk all over you on Saturday, You opened up and let the scrubs get through before Dunsmore had a chance to get started, and naturally the play failed. If you ' ve got any George Washington spirit left in you get down to business and play football from now on, and play to win. If you don ' t. I ' m going to go down and rob the dissect- ing ward of their cadavers to put in your places, for they would be a darn sight belter than you ' ve been today. " With that, he turned on his heel and walked off, while the players and the few spectators slowly filed from the field, all talking about the events of the day and the NOTE Thii tj the Second Prize Story.

Among the latter were several co-eds, and two of them lingering a little silently watched the players as they passed toward the dressing rooms Englewood, the big center stopped as he came abreast of them and jocosely remarked: " Some spiel wasn ' t it?” “It wasn ' t half so strong a spiel, as you call it as you deserve, " retorted one he black eyes flashing. “I felt like getting out there and giving you all a good tongue- lashing myself, I don ' t suppose it would have done much good buL you don ' t know how I hate the thought of the possibility of George Washington losing or how I wish that I could do something to help her win.” ‘Til admit we need something to brace us up Miss Holland,” Englewood returned soberly, “There is something wrong somewhere. We have lost our punch or what- ever you want to call it. We don ' t have the combined strength that we had earlier m the season and though I am in good physical condition 1 know that I am not playing as I should,” You need someone to rouse you from your laziness that ' s all,” she answered quickly. “If I were a man, I ' d do it too. You ' re all losing your college spirit with the exception of Mr. Dunsmore. He is the only one who has any spirit left and if you’d all follow his lead there would be no question of your beating Virginia, for we all know that we have the better team.” “You are perfectly mean to Mr, Englewood Beryl Holland,” interrupted her companion. " I’m sure that Mr. Englewood is just as much interested in winning as Mr. Dunsmore is,” “Thank you Miss Dameron for defending me ” said Englewood “but Miss Holland is largely right, 1 know that Fm lazy and the worst of it is I can t seem to get over it. But I do want to win just as much as any one else in the University, and I shall try to help us to win. For the present, however I must go and change my clothes. Do you mind waiting for me? Fll be only a few minutes.” “Not a bit,” Miss Dameron answered, “only hurry. And bring Mr, Dunsmore with you,” she added as he hurried away “Esther, how could you? " asked Beryl her face flushing furiously. “How could I? Because I wanted Mr. Englewood all to myself ” was the calm retort. As there was no reply she relapsed into defiant silence until Englewood returned followed by Dunsmore, “You did hurry, didn ' t you?” Esther said sweetly nodding cordially to Dunsmore as she took Englewood ' s arm. Then as they started away she began chattering viva- ciously, and Englewood, nothing loath, laughingly responded to her lead. Except for their formal greeting Dunsmore and Beryl were silent for some time as they fell into step behind the others. He was naturally reserved and now he felt a sort of restraint as he walked by her side, for her flushed face told him that something had displeased her. He usually entered but little into conversation preferring rather to listen than to talk and he had formed the habit of reading between the lines as it were and drawing conclusions not fully warranted by what had been said. Straightforward in everything he could not understand the value of equivocation, and was oftentimes mis- understood because he did not enter more into detail in the things which he said. And now feeling embarrassed at the prolonged silence, he said abruptly: " I fear I am in- truding Miss Holland. If I am, do not hesitate to tell me.” “Intruding? What makes you think that? she asked, conscious of the iact, at once military and feminine, that sudden attack constitutes the best defense. “You seem to be disturbed about something, and I thought I might be the cause of it, " he returned, flushing, “I assure you that you are not ' she said, with a friendly smile I was only angry at Esther ' Soon all show of restraint disappeared, and they began chatting about football, the game against Virginia, and sundry other topics, unreservedly, " Beryl, may 1 call this evening? " he asked, as she gave him her hand at parting. “Surely, if you care to, " she answered, gently disengaging her hand “I have something to tell you, " he said seriously, " so you may look for me Goodbye then, until tonight. " " Goodbye Bruce. " she retorted, as she fled precipitately into the house, her heart beating furiously, and chaotic thoughts flashing through her mind. What did he have to tell her? What had given that tender intonation to his voice as he had pronounced her name? He had never before called her Beryl And he had been so serious when he asked to call. Was he going to — ? She did not dare to finish the question even to herself, for she was not sure of her own feelings But it was pleasant to think of such a possibility, she had to admit to herself, and she made no effort to banish it from her mind. As the lime approached for Dunsmore to come, she flitted about, unable to occupy herself at one thing for long, She tried reading, embroidering, playing the piano; but she could not center her thoughts on any particular thing When at last she heard his ring, she resolutely stilled the beatings of her heart, flung the cloak of conventionality over her feelings and calmly admitted him. " Good evening, Mr, Dunsmore, " she greeted him, her voice cool and controlled " Good evening, er — Miss Holland 1 he responded, his joyful feelings of a moment before considerably dampened by her cool reception " I hardly expected you so early, " and her tone became friendlier under the influence of his presence. " I would have come even earlier except for the conventionalities, " he answered, " They are all that kept me away. " Surprised and somewhat embarrassed by this unexpected reply, she abruptly changed th e subject as she led him into the parlor, and began talking of the approaching game. She ted him on to talk of himself in connection with the team, and from that he began telling his experiences in other things. So artfully did she draw him on that before he knew it he had given her a complete history of his life, and was talking on topics of the day with a fluency of which he had never before thought himself capable. At her suggestion, they finally repaired to the piano. He possessed a rich, mellow tenor voice of considerable range and power, and he was capable of deeply impressing his listeners by the depth of expression with which he sang It blended beautifully with her full-throated soprano, as they sang light opera, popular compositions, old melodies and love ballads As they completed a sweet old Scottish love song she felt his eyes on her, and raised her head to meet a look filled with intense love and longing For a moment, they remained thus, each one ' s heart laid bare to the other, her eyes meeting his unflinchingly, though the blushes suffused her face in a crimson flood. 296 Reading the silent answer to his mute question in her dark eyes, he bent over her, seized her hands in his, drew her gently to him, and pressed his lips in a blissful, forceful, wonderful kiss She still sat at the piano; but her hands were imprisoned in his, her head rested on his shoulder, her face was upraised to his. Not a word had been spoken, but each seemed to know ' the thoughts and feelings of the other, “What were you going to tell me) " she at last asked softly, “I have already told it dearest,” he replied. “But weren ' t you going to ask me something)” she persisted, for this was not the way that she had pictured her bethrothal. She felt that there was something lacking to make it complete, and she wanted him to declare his love in words, “There is no need to, " he replied, in his direct way. " I already know what the answer would be, so why should 1 ask) " “I beg your pardon, sir, but you don ' t know, " she cried, as, disappointed in him and chagrined at her momentary surrender, she disengaged herself from his grasp and faced him angrily. “You take entirely too much for granted. I always supposed that a man had to ask a woman to marry him before he could consider the matter settled. But you seem to think that you don ' t have to utter a word to show that your actions are hon- orable, and I have no way of knowing.” For a moment, he stood silent, too stunned for speech. " But, Beryl ' he at last remonstrated, “I—” “Don ' t call me Beryl,” she interrupted, “I presume that I am only one of the many others who have been won by your masterful way, and I can t say that I want to be placed on a plane with them.“ “I beg your pardon, Miss Holland, but that statement is untrue, " he returned, stung to the quick by her words, “You are the first— " “Don ' t tell me anything like that, for I don ' t believe it,” she interrupted, with a stamp of her foot, “Very well,” was his bitter but composed reply. “If that is the way you look at the matter, I will say good night,” With that, he w r as gone. Behind him he left a dazed, unhappy girl, huddled up on the sofa, shaking with uncontrollable sobs, vowing over and over again that she would never, never, never, forgive him, while over and over her heart kept repeating, “He is gone. He is gone. " ¥ ■¥ ¥ ¥ The November sun again shone on the gridiron, but on a vastly different scene. The stands were packed with spectators, students rushed hither and thither across the held, “Old grads” talked incessantly of the possibilities of the game, while, over all, the an seemed impregnated with the feeling of greater things to come. On one side the students were massed, waving their banners and singing. All around them was draped the home colors, which, combined with the banners, made a solid bank of Buff and Blue. Through- out the mass of human beings the colors of the two colleges were intermittently seen, here, girls with bows representing the team in which they were most interested ; there, digni- bed men with bands about their hats, frantically waving huge banners. The first half had been well played, but the Virginians had made two touchdowns and one goal to George Washington ' s none, and were jubilant in consequence. So confi- dent did they feel that they were offering odds of five to one. The Hatchetites were at 297 first slow in covering any of the money but a rumor began to spread that Dunsmore was going to try the new play, and their confidence returned to such an extent that every bet offered was immediately covered. In the locker-house, the players were gathered, listening to the talk of the coach, Englewood was there, a discouraged, half-hearted expression on his face, Dunsmore was there, loo, and on his face was a look of repressed suffering. His jaw wai act determinedly, while a savage glint showed in his eyes from time to time. As they filed out for the second half, Dunsmore pulled the coach to one side, and said: " Say something to Englewood to make him mad, for his fighting spirit is gone. Insult him, do anything to get him aroused. I ' m mad enough myself to do anything, and if you can only make him fee! the same way, well lick hell out of those Virginians. The coach glanced at Dunsmore rather wonderingly, for he had never before heard him use so strong an expletive. But sagely concluding that girls were of some use at times, and feeling the wisdom of the advice as he noticed the dejected droop of Engle- wood ' s shoulders, he ended his final instructions by saying; " Englewood, get a little life into that great big lazy carcass of yours. Don ' t lie down to that Virginia center as you did in the first half. He was wiping his feet all over you, you big, cowardly dub, and you didn ' t have courage enough to resent it. Now this time you go in there and show that you ' re half a man at least, and if you don ' t give that opponent of yours merry Hades you ' ll get it from me good and proper when this game ' s over. " Englewood flushed under the sting of the words and took a threatening step toward the coach. But the latter turned his back contemptuously and walked away, which only added fuel to the flame already kindled in his breast. It was only when they lined up after the kick-off and he felt the pigskin between his hands that he awoke to the exigencies of the moment. Elis rage, however, abated not one whit, and as the opposing center glanced at him, he received such a demoniacal glare in return that he involuntarily shuddered. Then the real conflict began. Up and down the field the ball was pushed, now one side gaining a momentary advantage, now the other. The Buff and Blue finally forced her way to Virginia s thirty-yard tine, but there they were stopped by the latter ' s pro- verbial stone-wall defense, despite the maddened rushes of Dunsmore and Englewood, But they still had one more down to go, and then- — " 6-3-2 7 " barked the little quarter- back as they lined up. Instantly the ball was snapped into his wailing hands, there was a clash of the lines, and the right flank began to give way, slowly, surely, but in perfect order. The left, however, remained firm, moving no more than does the massive rock against which the mountain torrent thunders and roars, only to break over it in baffled fury. Deceived by the giving way of the one side, the Virginia center plunged forward. Seizing his opportunity, the aroused Englewood, by a strategic movement, made an opening through which Dunsmore, to whom the ball had been passed, flung himself, aided by the quarter and Big Bob as interferes Completely deceived by the play, the visiting backs were given the shock of their lives to see Dunsmore come plunging through with the bail. They recovered instantly, however, and tried to tackle the flying runner. But the plucky little quarter blocked one, Englewood threw himself into the outstretched arms of another, and only the big Virginia fullback was between him and the goal. It seemed impossible to pass him, for 298 he followed the runner in his every move. Seeing what he believed to be his chance, the fullback flung himself forward his hands outstretched. But Dunsmore gave a sidewise leap that carried him safely past, and the touchdown was made. Then, amid the cheering, the goal was kicked, and, as they lined up again for the kick-off, pandemonium fairly broke loose. But six points still had to be gained to win, and the wearers of the Buff and Blue knew they would have to work like demons to do it. Up and down the field, the tide of battle rolled each team cheered frantically by its supporters. Excitement was prevalent everywhere, banners were flying, and the cheer leaders were waving their arms in elockdike rhythm. As the half drew nearer to a close, the excitement became intense. Staid old business men hammered one another with their canes; stately women, in the exuberance of their spirits, forgot conventionalities, and talked fluently with perfect strangers; younger men yelled themselves hoarse in shout- ing for their idol ; young ladies forgot their manners so far as even to hug their escorts. Now, with the ball on the forty " five yard line and in possession of the home team, with only a trifle over a minute of play remaining, a hush for a moment fell over the field, broken by the crisp voice of the little quarter as he gave the signal— 6-3-27 ’ There was a mighty impact, the doughty warriors of Virginia and George Wash- ington locked in deadly combat, straining, pushing, using every ounce of available energy. A wavering, and the Buff and Blue right was again pushed backward, again the Virginia center was tricked, and again Dunsmore, followed by little Prescott, plunged through the line. As they did so the opposing backs closed in, crouching like panthers ready to spring upon their prey, watching for an opportunity to tackle. The little quarter again blocked one as also did Englewood; but, again the big fullback was waiting and those behind were coming after at express-train speed. “I must get through was the sentence that kept flashing through Dunsmore ' s mind as he sped on. But the Virginia back was equally determined to stop him, and was bearing diagonally down upon him. Faster and faster they sped along, their breath coming in gasps, each striving to outdistance the other. Soon, the big fellow came within sinking distance. With a powerful spring he flung himself forward, his hands grasping Duns- more ' s knees. Down they both went and a groan w ent up from the Buff and Blue sup- porters while the visitors seemed to go mad with joy. It was a short-lived joy, however : for, with a wrench Dunsmore tore himself free, staggered to his feet, and with both teams tearing madly after him, sped on again toward the goal, bringing every particle oi of his vitality into play. But just as he was about to fling himself across the line he was again tackled this time fairly around the waist. Game to the last, he struggled on, one step, two, then three: then, borne to his knees by another tackier he wriggled along the ground inch by inch, until, with an almost superhuman effort, he managed to shove the ball just over the line, and knew nothing more until water w F as dashed into his face, “Did I get it over T’ he gasped. “Yes and Englewood kicked the goal Then before he could ask anything more, he was tossed upon the shoulders of his teammates and was carried around the field, cheered by friend and foe alike while the students fell into the snake-dance formation behind them. 299 When, at last, he escaped from his admirers, he hurried to his locker, donned his street clothes, and walked rapidly away through the crowd, his head bent, and eyes fixed on the ground, ' Bruce,” a soft voice called, a soft hand was laid upon his sleeve and he looked up to find Beryl Holland ' s eyes fixed lovingly upon him. ”] want you,” she said simply, in answer to the question in his eyes, “I could for- give you anything after what you did this afternoon. You’ll forgive me, won t you) and she looked pleadingly up at him. For a moment he looked at her in unbelieving silence. Then, in his characteristically straightforward way, and filled with too great joy in his double victory of the afternoon for speech, he bent down and kissed her there in the midst of the crowd. 300 Doc, Richardson says: When you take a man to the insane asylum you don ' t tell him so.

' VNo sir, " the man replied, and he seemed to smile to himself in a scornful manner. Ah ! She was coming. He could hear her feet on the stair, and the soft rustle of her garments. His heart beat wildly. Now he would tell her of his love Ah, yes, she was worth it. She extended her hand to him with a little laugh. He looked at her Her eyes were red and puffed. She looked faded, somehow ; and her voice, as she said “good morning ’ grated on him. His ardor cooled. With awkward excuses of a for- gotten lecture he made a hasty departure with promises to return later. She stood gasping for breath with indignation and surprise.

An antediluvian matronly dame, Mrs. Hubbard, by appellation, Proceeded erstwhile to examine her stock of provisions for pabulation, Intending to give her ossivorous canine a nutritive appetizer: But when she approached the deposit for victuals in close contiguity The cupboard astonished the dame by revealing a perfect vacuity And so the impoverished canine remained an unsatisfied gormandizer. 313 A gentleman indigenous to our municipality, Distinguished by extraordinary wisdom and cognition.

AVENUE (@ut of Ancient Egypt pSEPH COLBURN and I had been friends since our early college days. In the maddening on-rush of the crowding years while other friends had ij come and gone we still continued in the same rut of good fellowship. | I confess that at first I was unable to understand how such a brilliant mind as his could stand the hermit life he led ; but since then I have learned that simply because a man is solitary he need not be lonely, Romance is no respecter of persons, and may even condescend to make herself at home in the stuffy lodgings of a student of dead languages. Being engaged to the dearest of girls I get my romance dished out to me in tabloid doses in a rational and up-to-date manner which quite suits my temperament. But that has nothing to do with my story, I had a little talk with him the other day which quite opened my eyes, so to speak, and f think I can well understand how he came to be content with his Sanskrit Vedas and Egyptian hieroglyphics. I dropped in at Colburn ' s for a smoke and to listen to him talk, for he though a dreamy archaeologist, is a sympathetic talker. Conversation at the Club was beginning to bore me besides. I had formed the habit of dropping in at his rooms whenever I felt stale on things in general. Joe ' s study ' is a stuffy little hole but a blazing wood fire and some rather worn but cozy chairs make up for a good deal. It is quiet and dark there, and if anything his tobacco is worse than mine, and I feel justified m using my own. His brandy is not so bad, and he generally has some Chinese jade or an Egyptian scrab for me to play with as he is a collector of curios. When I came in he was siLting before the fire, deep in dreams. He scarcely noticed my arrival. Knowing Joe as I did, I made myself at home in a vacant chair. If he had some story to tell it would be worth listening to, and he would take his own sweet time about Lelling it So I kept still. He was the hermit — I the intruder. Gazing into the glowing coals he looked the part; his lean face in profile with the reflected led of the fire throwing grotesque shadows around the deep-set eyes and sharply-chiseled chin. His high forehead was wrinkled in many deep furrows, which conveyed somehow, an expression of hopelessness. There was something so strange in his manner and looks that I felt more than ever the intruder — -his dreams had carried him so far away from me. Suddenly he changed his position, and as though I had been there always he picked up one of his archaeological treasures from an old ebony case at his feet. “What do you make of that) " as he passed to me a small pottery cylinder covered with a band of finely inscribed Egyptian hieroglyphics, I examined the cylinder care- fully, but as my knowledge of such things was limited 1 was unable to comment intel- ligently. “Some people would pay a goodly sum for that, " Colburn continued " but il is valueless — .valueless in the sense that all love-letters lose their peculiar value when the lecipient is dead.” " An old Egyptian love-letter, " I put in, with a sudden interest, " It was sent to me by the finder at Helopolis or On, a little ruined town on the Nile, 1 1 is probably seven or eight thousand years old, " I gazed at the cylinder- The pottery was fresh and smooth as if it were recently molded and the writing was dear cut. As I held it near the fire-light I noticed a strange odor, heavy with spice which seemed to rise from the disc in my hand. 322 MAX ROSENTHAL Dental Laboratory All Oold Work done by Dr D.

Delivered in X He mnarai I " ' Myrrh, ' Colburn explained, “retains its strength for ages, even when exposed to the air. The gum was used by the ancients for embalming, and in religious ceremonies, at Helopolis it was used as incense in the worship of Ra, the Sun God ' Colburn ' s voice, strange and subdued, startled me. I here seemed to be, some- how, a grave restraint, intense emotion back of his deep musical voice, “Have you ever noticed, " he went on, “how a familiar odor, once scented, seems to conjure up a host of visions of forgotten pleasures and unhappiness? Myrrh means that to me. " He toyed with the cylinder reminiscently. Suddenly his brown eyes cleared, and the tense look of pain left his face. His next words were spoken in a voice strange and far away. The words were his, but the tone and the expression were different. “It is calm and wonderfully cool, and the rosy gray light of dawn vibrates over the desert. There is the temple of Ra, whose coming is looked for in the East, I he priests of On are in the sacrificial court, and a hymn to the rising sun floats out over the gray -green waters of the Nile, In the distance rise the pyramids, gray and sinister, cutting niches in the horizon. The voices of the priests mount higher and higher. The columns of the temple are crimson against the rosy sky. A voice rings out, strangely sweet. It is the voice of Potopherah ‘We worship thee, oh Ra. We praise thee, oh Sun. Thy beams make warm each soul “But no, the sun does not warm one soul His white garments are those of a slave — a prisoner — and all days are alike. The sun’s rising only means another day of drudgery. He stands alone, his heart lead within him, I he air is redolent of Myrrh ' I gazed at Colburn, There was a ring of sincere earnestness in bis voice, and I could see the vision as he painted it. A brilliant smile was on his lips “It is evening All is darkness, save for the colorless blotches of the temples against the star- lit sky, A girlish voice whispers out over the stillness of the desert, “ ' Yusef, Yusef, art thou here? I thought you would never come Here is a letter I have written for thee. I baked it myself, and it is heavy with perfume. I must go. Poti- pherah, my father, will be looking for me “A little clay cylinder lays in the hand of Yusef (Joseph) and it smells of Myrrh " Colburn rose from his reverie. “My God [ What have I said l I’m not myself! Go! Out of my sight!” I turned to leave, but Joe s hand stayed me “You beard a good deal. You may as well know all. Here 1 ake this paper. It is the translation of the letter ’ 1 took the paper Here is the letter of Asenath: “Yusef, I have good news for thee. Pharaoh has not been sleeping welt of late. All the wise men have been trying to interpret his strange dreams, but all to no avail Pharaoh is angry Remember the slave who was with thee until Pharaoh restored him to office? He has told Pharaoh of thee and of thy interpretation of his dream. Pharaoh will send for thee tomorrow. Let thy God give thee aid I have no fai th in thy deity It is only right that I, Asenath, daughter of the pries] of On, should not. But I will change if he works this miracle I am more slave than thou, and will do thy slightest bidding, even to fleeing from On with thee I will bridge race and religion and come to thee in sunlight or moonlight. I love as no woman ever loved before. I am thinking of thee and we shall go out of the land of Egypt. " (Notation in Colburn’s writing: Genesis, Chap 44 and 45 And Pharaoh gave him to wife Asenath, daughter of Potipherah, priest of On, and Joseph went out over the land of Egypt. " ) 324 Studio of were Harris Ewing fj _ ji i 1 Photographers of Men who make History . ” mmm r o be sure, one might be inclined to think that Joseph Colburn was mildly lunatic, but as it can well be perceived that a great student ol archaeology may be so wrapped up in his work that he imagined himself living in the ancient days o( which he studies. But as I read over that translation w r ritten by him with a modern pen on modern paper, there rose from it a faint perfume as though the hand that wrote it had come in contact with Myrrh.

(by the editor.) I wish to thank the city authorities for quarantining my family and me for three weeks recently because one of them had the smallpox. During that time my wife caught up her sewing, we had three square meals a day, as no one came in, and she was not permitted to leave; we enjoyed three weeks of good nights’ sleep, and best of all, a cousin with four children had arranged to visit us, but saw the smallpox sign on the door and left town so scared she will never come back again. So for these and other blessings we are thankful for the quarantine. 326 jjH sa mjjasjwjzjj. writs - ssijemmisxmB. v Tussrm ' issjn i zj.x Ki?Jintaz32. l Washington Business and Civil Service School Chestey Building, 1317 New York Ave. N.

For the Editor The Cherry Tree of 1914. G W. U., City: A KISS, (By Genevieve M. Frizzell.) A kiss is a spontaneous arrangement made between two people of opposite sex to show that there aren ' t any hard feelings between them. When made between two people ol the same sex it usually simulates the same motive. Kisses are large, medium and small. They are also short and long. They vary in number according to the age and weight of the contestants. Sometimes kisses are man ' ufactured with lightning-like rapidity. At other limes they are contracted for by the piece, for instance, after some years of married life. As a rule, kisses are not public I he parties wishing to enter into a partnership whereby their manufacture may be facili- tated go into executive session, as in the case of California and other blissful states, proceed to exclude all aliens, and then move to the regular order of business, which may he ad- journed from time to time according to the constitution of the two deponents. Among the many other varieties of kisses beside those mentioned are the back-parlor or domestic; the railroad station or compulsory; the relative; the prolonged serial-to-be- continued-in-our-next and the honeymoon. - Epitaph In memory of our Father; Gone to join his appendix, his tonsils, his olfactory nerve his kidneys, his ear drum, and a leg prematurely removed by a hospital surgeon who craved the experience. ¥ ¥ Quinine Cocktails.

In one of oar local courts, a recent case required the testimony of a young German immigrant. Schnare was the attorney for the plaintiff. “Now, Brittzmann said Schnare, “what do you do? " “Ah vos pretty well, " replied the witness. “I am not inquiring as to your health, I want to know what you do. “Vork “Where do you work?” continued the counsel. “In a factory. “What kind of a factory) “It vos bretty big factory. “ “Your honor said Schnare, turning to the judge, " if this goes on, we U need an interpreter Then he turned to the witness again. “Now, Brittzmann, what do you make in the factory? ' he asked. " You vant to know vot I make in the factory? “Exactly, What do you make in the factory? ' Eight dollars a week. " ¥ ¥ ¥ One of our boys journeyed to Alexandria, “Can you direct me to the best hotel in this town? he asked of a man about to board a train.

Her hair has hid them all away — 1 hose shell-like ears I once adored, In whose pink curves my vows I poured, lo hirsute wads I cannot pray — Where are the ears of yesterday? Someone, I think, should interfere. Lest other features disappear. Next year, perhaps, eyes will be gone, Then chins, then noses, won’t be worn. Until regretfully we say: ’’Where is the face of yesterday ? 4t ¥ Geological Age of Man . F he Age of Man is divided by geology into three periods: (a) The Glacial Period. (b) The Champagne Period. (c) The Later Period. The first two are times of enjoyable excitement, but if the first two periods are much prolonged the Later Period is likely to be misty and uncertain. In the Dental Sc too , Doc, Hunter (in illustrated histology lecture) : What kind of tissue do you call this thrown upon the screen here? Stutzman: Why, that’s a serious gland. 340 Prof, Davis (in Anatomy) : Tell me what branches comprise the Common Caro- tid Artery? Harry K K. Gilman: Two branches, inside and outside ¥ ¥ ¥ Fie, Fic t Doc , Swisher — Is This the Kind of Advice You Give Innocent Freshmen? Doc, Swish: Mr. Albert, what was the capital of the Abasside Dynasty? F Albert: I don ' t know Doc, Swish : It is a very good word to remember, Mr Albert, for you may some- time be placed in the position of the man who was entertaining a bishop at dinner. The servant spilled the soup over the host, %vho said, " Damn 11 ; but seeing the horrified expres- sion on the bishop ' s face, he immediately added two other syllables, making it " Dam- ascus,” which quite mollified the bishop So, Mr Albert, don ' t forget the word, " Dam- ascus, " for it may come in handy some time ¥ ¥ ¥ Inquiring Stude: What ' s the density of H?

Miss Monger; It sizzles up, sir. Prof Swett: It does, eh? Well, the next time it rains, suppose you go down and watch the Washington Monument and see it " sizzle up, " ¥ ¥ ¥ “All life is set to music, " says a poet, and we add, " And the life of a tramp to ragtime. " ¥ ¥ ¥ Lowe: Hey, lend me ten dollars, will you, old man?

And ’tis nott Welle, forsoothe to dwell Alone on life’s broad fielde. Query from Chapman: Is it only the milk trains that are equipped with cow- catchers? Nasal Euphonium Enlivens Examinations. Not as the strident blare of the trumpet that calls to fame nor as the bugle ' s echoing melody, came a bare-o’-tone blast into the tense stillness of a freshman law examination. A hundred verdant minds, concentrated upon tanglesome questions propounded by Pro- lessor Van Vleck with malice aforethought and intent to flunk, were abruptly diverted by the passing plaintiff peal that quavered and faltered and finally died away in a dismal diminuendo. Recalling an event of last year, two seniors surreptitiously surmised that another freshman had fainted away. Before a call for Emergency could be placed, the syncopated strains were repeated in vivid imitation of the final bawl of a dying calf. Arid a fiond freshman in the rear of the room stroked and swabbed his prominent proboscis. Prof, Bassler (lecturing in geology) : Were it not for diastrophism, we would have to go down many thousand feet for our coal. Rose (in the back room) : Gosh, it’s bad enough to go down cellar. Harsch says the way to give local color to a story of this school is to bring in the janitor. 342 Miss Abbott (on a tour of inspection in the Baldwin Locomotive Works): What are those large iron things Guide; They are locomotive boilers Mi Abbo : Why do they boil the locomotives? Gui ; Why, to make the engine tender y y y Is Taught by Doc , Borden s Staff The three degrees in medical treatment — positive, ill; comparative pill; superla- tive, bill, y y Miss Albes finds that when she takes her country cousin down on F street the latter has the same comment to make that she makes when she visits her country cousin s farm- yard: Look at all those chickens running around raw. y y y " There ' s A Reason, 1 We sometimes skip our Math, class.
