PERISCOPE 1915 8 nttnr IKmte Previous classes have boasted of what they could do. We boast of what we can make others do. In September, 1011. we made our debut into University circles (also squares and rhomboids). The College, then located on I Street, certainly maintained the traditional atmosphere that surrounds things intellectual and separates them from things beau- tiful. This new life was everything that could be expected. The buildings were gray and forbidding; the halls were straight and narrow (an excellent thing perhaps for freshmen); the classrooms were all too small to hold us and our Knowledge; the ensemble savored of Education. But this joy was not to last forever. After six months ' acquaintance with us the Faculty and Trustees decided that we were uncom- monly fine youngsters and worthy of much attention Therefore, it was decreed that the University should seek a more favorable environment for the development of its new Freshman Class. Now this was just what we wanted, so, of course, we were delighted that the powers that he had approved our suggestion. Those of you who have joined us sinee April 12, 1912, can never appreciate what you missed before that time. Things were very lively up on I Street. Down here it is different. At 2023 G Street we have all the advantages of a large University, North and South Campus — benches in the front yard back porches, and three buildings phis an annex. For all of these things be thankful unto the Class of 1915. They didn ' t want to do it, but we made ' em do it. This is our monumental achievement. We became acclimated very quickly in our new surroundings and found the expan- sion much to our liking. During our Sophomore and Junior years we did a few things ourselves. We revived athletics and the eds and co-eds both put out excellent basket- ball teams. The track meets for those two years were unprecedented successes at least in point of attendance. Another great achievement that can be attributed to the Glass of 1915, is the complete liquidation of the old athletic debt, accumulated by our careless predecessors who did not know how to make others work. We burned the mortgage at appropriate services in the fall of 1914, The Reverend Mr. McNemar officiated, From that time on everything boomed. The basket-ball teams inspired by our watchful interest had splendid games, the track meet was the best in years (from a financial standpoint), and, best of all. the University acted upon another one of our excellent plans arid agreed to purchase an additional building. This greatly increased the corridor space and made the South Campus large enough for a regulation baseball field. To get the faculty to do this we had to work overtime but our efforts are being rewarded. In closing it must not be forgotten that this class is the first one to edit its own yearbook. This accounts for its excellence. After some retrospection and much imagination it must occur to the few readers of this noble eulogy that the Class of 1915 has a splendid past; its future therefore can be no less than a success. They say that history repeats itself, but with our old- time freshman self-assurance we declare that there will never be another class like ours. We came to the University when she most needed support; we leave her as she enters upon an era full of large and excellent prospects. A splendid heritage we leave to the Class of 1916.

U. PERISCOPE 1915 HOMER T. SHAVER. JOSEPH R KINGSBURY PAUL B SEtL.EE, LEO V. TERRY, President Vice- President Secretary Financial Secretary ®ljr Atbbtir Aaanriatinn The college year 1914-T5 opened with brighter prospects for ath- letics than for some time past. The long-standing athletic debt had been paid off the preceding spring, and the slate was clear to put G. W. U. again on the athletic map. It was not sought to reintroduce every branch of athletics at once, but it was felt that successful seasons in track and basketball would be forerunners of a more comprehensive program next year. Leslie C. McNemar, Assistant Professor of Political Science, had been appointed Director of Athletics by the University authorities, and early in the year set about getting things under way. Membership cou- pons were gotten out through various agents under the financial secretary and his assistant, Leo C. Terry and John S. Bixler. The first meeting of the Athletic Association was held November 11, at which a constitu- tion was adopted. Elections were held early in January. Meanwhile the men’s basket-ball team and also that of the co-eds had started their seasons, and in February the annual track meet was held. The year ' s work has been a success generally from both the athletic and financial standpoints. This fact is due to the valiant efforts of Professor McNemar and a small group of students and alumni who as- sisted him. The support of the student body as a whole has been disap- pointingly weak. Only a small proportion showed their interest by join- ing the Athletic Association when coupons were ssued last fall, and of these there are quite a few who have failed to make good with the prom- ised two dollars for the season ticket of the Association. It is hoped that such success as was achieved this year will arouse greater interest and support for next year ' s efforts. 26 1915 G. W. U. PERISCOPE 1915 ®rark ufcam The feature of the track season was the annual George Washington indoor meet held in Convention Hall on Saturday evening, February 13, 1915. Not only did this event prove the usual success from the athletic standpoint, but Professor McNemar broke away from tradition and pulled through a financial success as well. As Professor McNemar had no regu- lar student manager to assist him, the greatest part of the credit must go to him personally. He was, however, aided by the student officers of the Athletic Association, and especially by two of the alumni, both of whom had had experience in staging former G. W. U. meets — Howard W. Hodgkins, who served as a graduate advisor, and Robert P. Fleming, the coach of the track squad. Our own track team won only five individual points in the meet, as compared with 28 won by Washington and Lee, the trophy winner, but the Buff and Blue came off victorious in the two-mile relay with Washing- ton and Lee which was one of the features of the meet. The George Washington relay was composed of P. S. Herring, L. A. Maxson, R. 0. Kluge, and Captain L. G. Connor. George Washington men were also en- tered in the meet in Baltimore on February 20, and in the Georgetown meet on February 27. Our success was centered chiefly in the South At- lantic Intercollegiate championship events, in which we landed 13 points in the three meets of the indoor season. Of these, eight were won by Captain Connor in the mile and half-mile, four by Harry Semmes in the pole vault, and one by Maxson in the two mile. 27 jaw BASKETBALL TEAM. 1915 1915 G. W. U. PERISCOPE SaiikrthaU Although it did not win a majority of its games, the Basketball Team of 1914-’15 gave an excellent account of itself in a difficult sched- ule. Of six games on the home floor, four were won and only two lost; but out of twelve games away from home, ten were lost and only two won. One feature of the season was the restoration of athletic relations with Georgetown, although our rivals succeeded in getting the long end of the score in both games played. Coach Frank Schlosser, Captain Homer Shaver, and Manager Tom Murray all deserve much credit for the way in which they handled their parts of the season’s work. Harry Almon, whose goal shooting was a par- ticular feature of the season, has been elected captain for next year. The ’Varsity letter, “W”, has been awarded to the regular team, composed of Murray, right forward; Almon, left forward; Johnson, center; Shaver, right guard ; and Groesbeck, left guard. The second emblem, the " G. W.”, was awarded to Hamner and Bryant. The season’s scores are given in full below. The National Guard Armory at Center Market, was used for the home games. Dec. 12 — Defeated Loyola, by score of 35-26, at home. Dec. 16 — Defeated Gallaudet, 27-23, at home. Dec. 19 — Lost to Navy, 20-42, at Annapolis. Jan. 8 — Defeated Washington and Lee, 24-16, at Lexington. Jan. 9 — Lost to V, M. I., 15-20, at Lexington. Jan. 11 — Lost to Virginia, 12-41, at Charlottesville.

Mar. 10— Lost to Georgetown, 17-29, at Georgetown. 29 1915 G. W. U. PERISCOPE 1915 (Sirls SaiskrtliaU In every respect the season of 1914-’15 has been a success. With the exception of the first game of the season, the team has won every game played, whether at home or away. Out-of-town games were played with the Temple University and the Tome School in February, and with Fort Loudon Seminary, of Winchester, Va., in March. The average score of the G. W. U. team through the season was 33 points per game, which was more than three times the average score of its opponents. Deepest thanks are due to Agnes Carter, who has coached the team for two years with such success. “Ted” Seibold and Mary Tyndall also deserve special credit for their work as captain and manager, re- spectively. The team was composed of the following girls : Centers — Luella Field and Ella Gardner. Forwards — Theodosia Seibold and Eleanor Reeve. Guards — Mary Tyndall, Helen Hotchkiss, and Carola Craig. Substitutes — Emma Reh and Gertrude Fogerty. The scores of the season’s games were as follows: Dec. 18, lost, Ingram, 15-17. Jan. 3, won, Normal, 22-7. Jan. 7, won, Central High, 28-8. Jan. 13, won, Gallaudet, 39-13. Jan. 29, won, Epiphany, 36-6. Feb. 1, won, Ingram, 26-8. Feb. 5, won, Temple University, 21-18. Feb. 6, won, Tome School, 35-18. Feb. 8, won, Gunston Hall, 43-15.

Walton The scholastic year of 1914-15 has marked the highest point in the history of the George Washington University Chemical Society. In five years this Society has become the largest student scientific organization in the University and from the interest displayed at the meetings it is easily one of the live wires of this institution. Dean Munroe, Honorary President of the Society, gave one of his inter- esting and instructive talks at the first meeting of the year on " The War and its Effects on the United States.” At the annual public meeting held in March, Dr. M. X. Sullivan of the Department of Agriculture, gave an interesting talk on “Some Aspects of Biochemistry.” The annual banquet, held just before Washington’s birthday at the Hotel Continental was of rare excellence. The Society has made trips of inspection to the bottle factory, the sulphuric acid and fertilizer plants in Alexandria ; to the brewery, and the yeast and gas plants in this city, and to a number of manufacturing plants in Baltimore. The papers given by the members have been of wide range and great interest. Among the subjects treated were : “Chemical Patents,” by John F. Brockwell. " History of Chemistry,” by J. Norman Taylor. “Perfumes,” by Elmer Stewart. “The Oxy-Acetylene Blowpipe,” by L. F. Pahl. “Pharmaceutical Chemistry,” by Paul Brattain and Carl F. Snyder. The Chemical Society closes a most successful year, and has without a doubt fulfilled its object — “to promote interest in Chemistry among the students of the University and to encourage better acquaintance and mutual help among the students of Chemistry.” 33 Va I 1 on THE ALCHEMISTS 1915 G.

Speak not the Scriptures oft in parables? Are not the choicest fables of the poets That were the fountains and first springs of wisdom Wrapped in perplexed allegories?” Peter J. Donk Melville R.

Bright and early in the school year the musical co-eds of the University got together and under the direction of Miss Ruth Ayler soon had an active organiza- tion of splendid voices. On December BO they gave a concert in the Assembly Hall which showed the result of faithful training and reflected great credit on the club and its leader. The club has enlivened chapel exercises several times with selections, and has sung at the Pan-Hellenic party and numerous other co-ed functions. A song written by Miss Everil Worrell, a member of the club, was awarded the Sphinx Honor Society prize as the best school song written during the year. ®Ije JHntfi (Bin Gllitb Leo C.

Under the able leadership of Professor Swett, the Club has become an added asset to the student life and activities of the University. To direct the business end of a Glee Club is no easy matter, but Presi- dent Terry has proven equal to the task. The securing of Professor Swett as Musical Director was a ten strike, and the future success of the Club now seems assured. A Mandolin Section was organized during the past year, and, under the direction of Mr. Holmes, did some very good work. Keep your eye on the Glee Club next year, and your ears open. 37 1915 G. W. U.

Fogle Vice-PresiBent Secretary Treasurer President The Association of Class Presidents was organized in 1904 as a body of representative students who should pass on all matters relative to the student body. It was invested with this authority by the President and the Faculty, and has been quite successful in carrying out its duties. Each year the Association has made great strides in the work of feeling the pulse of the entire student body and, with the Faculty, has brought about a closer correlation of the interests of the students in the various depart- ments of the University. In doing this it has strengthened the spirit of cooperation in working for the best interests of the school. The Association has been active during the past year in helping to place athletics in the University on a firm foundation. The following is a list of the Class Presidents, who comprise the active membership of the Association : COLUMBIAN COLLEGE. LAW SCHOOL- Melville R. Walton, 1915 James F. Pierce, 1915 Fred M.

Wanlass Melville R. Walton Earnest Ferdinand Wen derot h James F. Pierce The 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 stu- dent activities for its members, it is necessary to continue those activities to assure its existence. Student enterprises should be continued, not only to justify the presence of an honor society, but to rejuvenate the Univer- sity. And at present this seems to be the trend of affairs. But an organ- ization 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 perpetuating 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. 1915 G.

Moser, Kappa Psi The interfraternity association, organized in the fall of 1911, is com- posed of thirteen delegates, one from each of the fraternities represented in George Washington. The purpose of the association as stated in its constitution is " to bring the fraternities of the University closer together and to promote student activities.” In both of these purposes it has been highly successful. Meetings are held monthly at the various chapter houses, and this in itself promotes friendly relations among the chapters. While the association exercises no arbitrary authority over the chapters composing it, and by its constitution is forbidden to regulate " rushing,” its decisions on matters of general fraternity interest have always been accepted by the various chapters, and its actions upheld by them. The faculty has also come to recognize the interfraternity association as the real representative of organized fraternalism within the University, — the ear and the mouth- piece, so to speak, of the fraternity element. One of the big events of the school year is the annual interfraternity smoker, which affords an unequalled opportunity for the Greek letter men to get thoroughly acquainted and give vent to a little college spirit. The truly important event in fraternity circles, however, is the annual prome- nade which is usually held shortly after the Easter holidays. It is no exaggeration to say that in furthering student activities, especially athletics, the interfraternity association has in recent years been perhaps the greatest single force in the University. Last year a basket ball league was organized and played through a successful season. This year an interfraternity bowling league has kept enthusiasm and friendly rivalry at a high pitch. No event of the annual indoor athletic meets arouses more interest than the interfraternity relay race. At the present writing the organization of an interfraternity base ball league and an interfraternity tennis tournament are under way. 46 1915 G. W. U.

Teach us that Heaven withholdeth but to fill. Grasping, thou vvouldst lose all ; wait then and see In the old press of Duty steadfast still How comes the unexpected God to thee.

The Sphinx this year took charge of the luncheon which is given at the beginning of every year as a welcome to the Freshmen co-eds. The society was also chiefly instrumental in fitting up an attractive study room for the women of the University. Besides this collective work, the individual members have prominent parts in the various college activities which have been organized and are managed by the women students. ®hr fait Hcllntir Assiuiatimt The Pan Hellenic Association of George Washington University is a unit of the National Pan Hellenic Congress, to which belong the leading women ' s fraternities of the country. The purpose of the local organization as well as the national is to improve the conditions of fraternity life and interfraternity relationship, to cooperate with the College authorities in all efforts to improve social and scholastic standards, and to regulate rushing when possible. Rushing rules for the following year are decided upon every spring. As an unanimous vote is necessary, a failure to agree simply means independent rushing. National Pan Hellenic deems fines for the breaking of Pan Hellenic rules unethical. They constitute an honor con- tract and the fraternity evading or disregarding them does more harm to its local and national reputation than any fine can inflict. ®ltp foam linnunt’fi lluiiiprat fflluli Anna Craton President Frederika Neumann Vice-President Joanna Best Secretary Elizabeth Weber Treasurer It was found advisable to change the name of the Y. W. C. A. to the Young Women’s University Club in order to gain the cooperation of all the young women in the University. The aim of the organization is twofold: The one religious the other social. The Club takes charge of the Monday chapel service and has a Bible Class every Friday afternoon under the direction of Miss Finney of the Central Y. W. C. A. The highest aim of the organization, however, is to foster the college spirit among the young women, and the efforts in this direction through social activities have proved very successful. 86 1915 G. W. U. PERISCOPE 1915 (Srnriir Maslfiugtnn A Nation for a day stands still. We look Beyond the careful living of our Jives, Above ail factions ' petty rivalry, Behind the shifting smoke that hides the aitu Of toil, and veils the accomplished work Id blurred misshape. In clearest cameo From out the past, a face of deep resolve, A dreamer of true dreams we reverent see, A hero, rich in great accomplishment. Upholder of the highest liberty, A monarch of himself— George Washington. The maker of a Nation —there he stands. Calm, unassuming, nobleman of God. Scorning the lure of selfishness and greed, High he conceived the honor of a state. High he maintained the honor of a man- Here were the truest standards for our life. Fruit of a hundred years, our mighty state Lives the embodied thought of Washington. Yet in the place where hope and faith abode Stand prophets of despair, who sigh. “The land Is given over unto selfishness. For public honor yields to private gain. Injustice is our creed, our heraldry The dollar sign of avarice! " We hear Their loud complaints of failure and disgrace, 1b all our loyalty an empty name? Are heirs of Washington less true than he? Are we a dying branch from living root, Or wild grapes in the vineyard of the Lord? A hundred years have brought new strength to us. New fears, new paths, new joys. But still. Still stands the old dream, high, unchangeable, That deathless dream of liberty and right. A hundred hundred years can never daunt Those ancient hopes: A broad land full of truth And equity; a more abundant life For all who seek; honor for high and low; A country rich in homes; this was the faith, This the far distant goal of Washington; And still his beacon, shining through the night Of selfishness, foretells the approaching morn Of justice, and of honor, and of good. — Selected. 88 1915 G. W. U. PERISCOPE 1915 A § tnry until a ittnral Hearken unto me, my son, for my words have wisdom for thine ears. When thou seest a man rushing through the corridors with his arms full of books, and a glassy stare in his orbs, and his trousers bagging at the knees, and his necktie flaunting from under his ear, set him not down as one whose head buzzeth with wheels, but rather have pity on him and like- wise scoff him not. He is a Government Clerk who worketh all day, and at eventide seeketh knowledge. He is one who taketh three fountain pens and four red-backed note books; and he sitteth himself down before ye mighty instructor and jot- teth down all that he heareth — yea, even unto the twittering of the spar- rows, and likewise the stale jokes of the faculty. Then he rusheth home and gulpeth down a morsel of food and swal- loweth caffeine galore. Then he putteth his feet beneath the table and he crammeth until the sun riseth, yea, even until dawn. He snatcheth a nap, rusheth to work, and again to the halls of learning. Soon cometh the wise men who ask jaw-breakers, and great fear riseth within him, but it is subdued. Then he doth write much that is wise and otherwise — and his knowledge dwindleth, and soon it has left him. Then he sitteth himself down and waiteth. Now cometh to him the returns and his name is not among the chosen ones. Then a great wrath riseth up within him, and he sayeth unto him- self, “Behold, it was for naught, and now I must work for hire.” And verily it is so, for now doth he carry the hod, yea, even to the tenth story, and his wage is small, for long since he lost his Government job for “knowing too much.” But now doth he live as one content; he eateth three meals each day and sleepeth as a child. Seest thou, my son, the moral which loometh up in this tale, yea, even as an old maid loometh up at a church social?

The square is dark the hour is late. I pause and then make bold, And springing up the well-known steps, I enter as of old. Flight after flight the stairs J climb. That garret long ago, Tis years, yet 1 have not forgot Bo well the way I know! With feverish haste the door 1 seek. I fit the rusted key, And swinging open at my touch, The Past comes back to me! The leaning row of well-worn books, Now r thick with mould and must, The pictures all so dear to me, So dear the dirt and dust! A moment on the couch I lean, Jt all comes hack again The little skylight star at night. The loneliness, the rain! A crumbling canvas with her face The old, enchanting pose; And on the table, dropped by her, The ashes of a rose! The gracious day she sat for me. How long ago it seems; And something else 1 half forget, Well, dreams are only dreams!

This is the room. He ' s off on a bust. Don ' t mind this little gray film of dust, But just step lightly and lift your skirt, There in the corner are rolls of dirt. Here are stray papers, and scraps of waste A bit of cake— would you like a taste? Pipes and tobacco and ashes and smoke — Oh but to him Life ' s a jolly old joke! There on the table ' s a half-withered rose, Artistic remembrance, as every one knows! A copy of Browning, and Plato, and Kant, Emerson ' s features, kindly though gaunt. What are these verses? Unfinished, you say. Yes, for his Muse spread her wings and away! Here is a story he thought “corking” good, Hoped they would buy it, but nobody would! Failures! Successes! That ' s what living seems; 1 beg you. don ' t grudge him these poor little dreams— Youth is all golden, w r ith castles of air, Springtime eternal! Staid people, beware! 92 1915 G. W. U.
