Fresh in thought perhaps, and caper — Candlestick with new-lit taper — Greets you here your CHERRY TREE. After days and nights of toiling. Printers ' squabbles, copy boiling, They are done and I am free. But their labor without measure — So they whisper — turned to pleasure When they thought upon the treasure That I hold, your CHERRY TREE. Pictures rare do I possess ; Courage, youth, and loveliness Hide within your CHERRY TREE ; Many memories do I hold, Many truths do I unfold — These in time will turn to gold And the more you ' ll cherish me, L’EnvoL Life and time are ever fleeting; Having gone, there’s no repeating— Naught is left save memory.

We affectionately dedicate this book to DEAN WILLIAM ALLEN WILBUR, a true and sincere friend of every student , and for whom each of us holds the deepest admiration and respect 4 WILLIAM ALLEN WILBUR, A. M. Dean of Columbian College. G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W, U. WILLIAM ALLEN WILBUR “When I was sailing last summer ' 1 — but that isn ' t the reason we call him the Skipper, It wouldn ' t be a Cherry Tree, you know, without that phrase, so we use it here just to make sure, " The Skipper ' 1 because he was born to it, and has always been command- ing something, ’Way back in the nineties, when you and I were sailing toy ships on the village creek, he was called from New England to the quarter- deck of Columbian College Preparatory School-supply ship to the Deep Sea Vessel, as it were. By and by a pier was built out to deep water, (the Deep Sea Vessel no longer needed an auxiliary), and Wilbur went aboard the larger vessel — in the English Department, Then, in an emergency when someone had to command the College, Wilbur was sent to the bridge. Further than that there isn ' t much to tell. For many years now he has navigated the good ship " Columbian College, " and sometimes it’s been pretty rough weather, but the old craft is still afloat and getting more seaworthy every day. The Skipper has done great things for Columbia n but his greatest deeds are the things he has done to shape your life and mine. In years to come, when we " breast the blows of circumstance " , we will feel even more than now the value of association with this fine old salt — and a great feeling of gratitude and affection will well up for him " who bore without abuse the grand old name of gentleman, " CHARLES HERBERT STOCKTON. LL. D. President of the University, G W. LL THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U. CHARLES HERBERT STOCKTON Rear Admiral, U. S. Navy, retired Admiral Charles Herbert Stockton, President of the George Washington University, graduated from the U, S, Naval Academy in 1865. Since that time he has been in command of several U, S, vessels. He was president of the Naval War College at Newport, R. I-, from 1898-1900 and was then selected to command the battleship Kentucky. Admiral Stockton is the author of various contributions to many periodi- cals and is also a compiler of the history of the U. S. Naval Asylum. He is an authority on International Law and is at present lecturing upon that subject at the University where he is honored and revered by the entire student body. 9 Officers of Administration, G. W.

THE UNIVERSITY George Washington University as an institution of learning has a record of which any institution might be proud, and with which it is the privilege as wel] as the duty of every student to famil iarize himself. Academic traditions are not readily fostered by city universities, for such traditions are, as a rule, associated with old buildings on the campus and are regularly commemorated by various, for which the tolerant atmosphere of a college town and the privacy of a campus are essential. The urban college must, therefore, be- cause of the necessities of the situation, be prepared to sacrifice much in the way of custom and tradition. For metropolitan police do not look kindly upon the “concrete expressions of college spirit and undergraduate animation ' So George Washington like other institutions similarly situated, has been de- prived of many customs and traditions that in other conditions commemorate the history of a college, A national university to be located at the National Capital is an idea as old as the republic itself. In his will George Washington bequeathed a large sum of money to be used in founding such an institution, and in his plan of the Capital City on the Potomac he pictures a great university, the center of a broad scheme of national education. The first plan for an educational sys- tem in the District of Columbia — drawn up by Thomas Jefferson — provided three branches, or stages of education: primary schools, academies and a university. Congress, however, doubting its authority under the Federal Constitution to establish such a university, took no action, so that today George Washington ' s bequest is still unfulfilled. The movement which resulted in the founding of what is now George Washington University began in 1819, Mr, Luther Rice, a minister of the Baptist church r realizing the opportunities offered by a college located at the seat of the Federal Government, set about collecting the Hinds for a college. Subscriptions were received from all classes of people in all parts of the United States. In 1821, through the influence of President Monroe. Congress granted a charter for the establishment of the " Columbian College in the District of Columbia " for the “sole and exclusive purpose of educating youth in the Eng- lish, learned and foreign languages, the liberal arts, sciences and literature, " Power was given the new institution to confer all the degrees usually conferred by institutions of collegiate standing. The liberal principles upon which Columbia College was founded are indicated by a clause in the original charter providing that “persons of all religious denominations shall be capable of being elected trustees, nor shall any person, either as president, professor, tutor t or pupil, be refused admittance into said college or denied any of the privileges, immunities, or advantages thereof, for or on account of his sentiments in matters of religion 1 In 1822 — thanks to Mr, Rice ' s ability as a college financier — land was purchased in what is now known as Columbia Heights and a college building was erected. To the funds which made this first little College building possible many prominent people, in England as well as America, had contributed. Among them were John Quincy Adams, William F. Crawford, John C, Cal- houn, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Bishop of Durham, Lord Ash- burton, Sir Janies Mackintosh, members of both branches of the national legislature, and many other distinguished people. The College was formally opened on January 9. 1822, with the Rev. William as president. The departments of theology and classical studies were opened at this time, and there were thirty-nine students in attendance. Growth 13 G. W U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W, U was so rapid, however, tha t within the next five years the law, medical, philosophical and preparatory departments were opened The College con- tinned to grow until by 1824 there were one hundred and fifty students on its rolls, attracted to the young institution from twenty -one of the twenty- four states which then composed the Union, On December 15, 1824, the first commencement was held . In the presence of President Monroe, General Lafayette, the Secretaries of State. War and Navy, and the leading members of Congress, three men were graduated. To Mr. Luther Rice Columbian College during the early years owed its life and prosperity. Up to the time of his death in 1836 he had secured for the institution subscriptions amounting to almost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This money was collected from every state in the Union, and no small portion of it was received from abroad. Somewhat later Columbian College found another staunch friend in the person of Mr. John Withers, of Virginia, who contributed liberally to its support from time to time, giving in alt some seventy thousand dollars. In the first administration of President Jackson Congress appropriated lots worth twenty-five thousand dollars to Columbian College, and a similar amount to Georgetown. This is the only assistance the institution has ever received at the hands of the Na- tional Government. The effects of the Civil War were keenly felt by educational institutions in the South. In Columbian College classes were practically suspended. A large number of the students entered the ranks of the Federal armies, and a larger number — Southern Baptists — casting their lot with their respective states, served in the armies of the Confederacy. The college buildings were for the time turned into government hospitals. At the close of the great struggle a few students returned to their studies and Columbian College once more took up the task of educating the American youth. A deep debt of gratitude is owed to Mr. W, W. Corcoran, who at this period in the develop- ment of Columbian College contributed large sums to the work of the insti- tution. An act of Congress in 1872 changed the name of Columbian College to the Columbian University, and made the Board of Trustees self-perpetuating. The work of transforming the institution from a suburban to a city college was begun in 1879. The Trustees had reached the conclusion that, in order to hold the student body. Columbian must remove to a central location in the city. So the sale of College Hill property was undertaken. The site of the old Arlington Hotel was presented to the LTniversity bv Mr. Corcoran. The property, however was considered too small, and Mr. Corcoran was induced to allow the sale of his gift and investment of the proceeds in cheaper lands. Accordingly the Harris property at the corner of Fifteenth and H Streets, where a clubhouse had previously stood, was purchased. In 1883 the erection of a building, considered at that time to be one of the most up-to-date college buildings in the United States was begun. Removal to this new location in the heart of the city was completed in 1884. In the beginning the Fifteenth Street building housed not only the classical and law departments, but also the Corcoran Scientific School which had recently been founded. Growth of the law department necessitated increased accommodations so that in 1898 a new building was erected on H Street in which the departments of law and diplomacy were accommodated. By permission of Congress and with the approval of the Secretary of the Interior Columbian College changed its name in 1904 to “George Washington University. 11 14 G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U. A few years later it became evident that the property at Fifteenth and H Streets was too valuable to be used to advantage for educational purposes, so the site and buildings were sold to Mr. W. S, Woodward for the sum of $450,000. The departments of Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Mechanic Arts, and the Teachers College were removed to a block of buildings on the south side of I Street, between Fifteenth and Sixteenth Streets. The School of Architecture ceased for the time being to exist as a department of the Uni- versity although arrangements were made whereby students in architecture could continue their work in the city and receive credit toward their degrees. About this time the administration of George Washington ' s affairs was placed in the hands of President Charles Herbert Stockton. Rear Admiral U. S. N., retired. Under the able and farsighted management of Admiral Stockton the money received from the sale of the Fifteenth Street and other University properties was applied to the reduction of existing indebtedness : operation of the University was placed on a scientific basis, and up-to-date methods introduced in every department. As a result of this policy the institution is now on its feet financially, operating expenses are being met from operating income, and the endowments are being gradually restored to their former condition. In February 1912 the Arlington Hotel Company served notice that the I Street buildings would shortly be demolished to make room for a new hotel and must, therefore, be vacated by the first of May of that year. At once negotiations were undertaken looking toward the acquisition of the building at 2023 G Street, northwest, formerly occupied by the St. Rose Industrial School, These negotiations resulted satisfactorily for the University, During the Easter vacation, which was extended one week to allow sufficient time for the removal, the executive offices. Engineering departments and the Columbian College were transferred to the new location, and on April 15, 1912 classes were resumed in the new quarters. This building has been remodeled to meet the University ' s needs, and from time to time additional property has been pur- chased until now George Washington occupies four buildings in G Street in addition to the Medical School, With a steadily growing student body and a sound financial policy George Washington ' s future seems to be assured. This year’s registration has al- ready reached something over eighteen hundred students: when registration for the second semester has closed, the University will undoubtedly have two thousand students. This increased attendance brings with it new problems. Educational standards are being raised, changing economic conditions demand technical training along new lines, and the Government service makes de- mands iipon the institution. Being situated at the Nation ' s Capital George Washington is peculiarly fitted to prepare men for special branches of work, as for instance, the Consular Service. " It is a sound college policy to develop and strengthen all courses of study contributory in so important a way to the public service of the Government, to professional studies in law. and to higher and more intelligent conceptions of citizenship. " George Washington is in spirit and in fact a national university — although since 1873 no financial assistance from a national source has been received, The educational facilities of Washington are especially adapted to the needs of higher education. In addition to the University libraries there is the Library of Congress, the best library in the United States, and special collec- tions in the various scientific departments of the Government, all of which by a special act of Congress have been made accessible to students.

FACULTY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES DEPARTMENT A mere glance at the names of the members of the faculty of this branch of our university will reveal characters who have obtained a most exalted position in their respective branches of study ; men whose names are known throughout the Western Hemisphere for their achievements and success, and whose life-work has been to build up a student body and prepare graduates who favorably compare with those of the leading universities of America and Europe, The deans of the several departments are known in all realms of science, literature, engineering and education, and are recognized as authorities in their own particular endeavor. One can scarcely read a newspaper without encountering the name of the dean of our “School of Graduate Studies 1 for Dr. Charles E. Munroe is a recognized authority on all branches of chem- istry, and is recognized by all as the foremost authority on explosives in the Western Hemisphere, if not in the world. Professor Howard Lincoln Hodgkins, the dean of the College of Engi- neering, is a name which cannot be uttered without it being associated with his great ability as a master of mathematics and engineering subjects. His work for the Navy Department in the computations for the Nautical Almanac has made his name famous throughout the world. Dean William Allen Wilbur, of Columbian College, is another of our famous men, being the author of “English Rhetoric, ' ’ the text-book so highly praised by outsiders, as well as by our own student body, William Carl Ruediger, the dean of the “Teachers College, 11 and famous everywhere for his educational methods, is the fourth and last dean of the Department of Arts and Sciences. His college has shown a rapid growth and improvement since his appointment, and we are able to attribute its progress only to his ability. Little would one have thought many years ago, when this university first opened its doors, that its faculty at the present day would far outnumber its student body at that time, yet such is the case. While our student body has grown until now its enrollment is bordering on two thousand students, our faculty has also shown a marked improvement in both numbers and ability. Our professors are not only teachers, but are authors, for more than one of them has published many volumes. With Professor George N. Henning at the head of the Romance Languages, and Professors Hermann Schoenfeld and Alfred Schmidt directing the Germanic Languages, with equally as capa- ble men at the heads of the various other branches of study, we feel that we cannot hope for anything but success. It is needless to say that the student body heartily appreciates the untir- ing endeavors of the members of the faculty, and holds them in its highest esteem. Success to each and every one of them is our earnest wish. 21 G W. U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE Gp W. u.

In our barbarism we met and defeated the Class of 1915 — defeated them so thor- oughly that our skill in fistic combat has become a tradition, and the name of the Class of 1916 will be written high on the roll of thy most valorous children. As time went on thy influence began to make itself felt, and our aggres- sive tendencies became diverted from warlike channels to those of Education and Learning, Little by little we acquired that Indefinite Something which makes thy children Scholars and Gentlemen, and quite at ease in the Society of Educated Men We were learning. The stores of Knowledge were yield- ing up their treasures to us, and we were gradually bcoming familiar with that priceless thing, True Culture, which roots itself in countless centuries. Already among thy Children of 1916 there are to be found men and women of whom thou art justly proud. Some, whose occupations have neces- sitated their early departure from thy halls, have won distinction in their chosen fields. Among those who have stayed until thou shalt bid them go are many who have done much to uphold the Fame and Honour of their Alma Mater, We go into that broad field of mature Manhood and Womanhood to play the game of Life as thou hast taught us to play it, to careers that will be much enriched and made more fruitful by the influence thou hast exercised over us during the formative period of our lives We will maintain thy Fame bright and thy Honour unsullied through all our years On the eve of our departure we thank thee for all thou hast done for us. Whatever good we may achieve will be due in greatest degree to thy teach- ings, tenderness and care. But much as thou hast done for us t Alma Mater, thou hast not given us ability to express the gratitude and appreciation we feel for thee.

At the first meeting of the class the most important consideration was the election of the officers, JOHN STOKES— President, PHYLLIS STEWART — Vice-President, ROBERT CHICHESTER — Treasurer, LINA FERGUSON— Secretary. On December fifteenth the annual Freshman Prom was held at the Raleigh. The affair was a great success in every respect, except financially. During the remainder of the year the various members of the class dis- tinguished themselves in numerous ways and at the end of the year, 1918, as a class, practically ran the College, September twenty-ninth brought the class into prominence again; this time as Sophomores. Again the class was called together for the purpose of electing officers who could capably direct so great a class; the following were chosen; GEORGE S. COOPER, JR. — President, ELEANOR STANTON — Vice-President, CHESTER LOCKWOOD — Treasurer. LUCY BURLINGAME — Secretary. H. JANNY NICHOLS, JR. — Serge ant- at- arms, JOSEPHINE JONAS— Class Editor. Mid-years happened to be next on the program and right here the class established a record to be envied. Not content with this the class worked up until it had its members occu- pying the editors ' chairs on the Hatchet and the Cherry Tree, Thus 1918 has passed through nearly two years of college work, honored by all; strong in numbers; filled with school spirit; proud of its exploits; and proclaimed by all: " 1918 SOME CLASS, ' 1 ■ • •■ •« jjy G.

The President of the Junior Class presided over a meeting held the twenty-fifth of October, at which the officers of the class were elected. These officials have held the favor of the student body, and shown themselves worthy representatives of a truly great class. Early in the year came rumors that this would indeed be a remarkable class; that the Prom given every year by the Freshman Class of Columbian College would be a great success. At the solicitation of the Columbian Fresh- man the Presidents of all the Freshman Classes met and decided to make this what it truly should be — a University affair. The Fort Myer Orchestra and the ballroom of the Raleigh Hotel were secured for the occasion, and on February the fourth was held the first Fresh- man Prom, of the George Washington University. To say that the affair was a success would be inadequate — it was phenomenal. Not for many years, and perhaps never before have the students so " got together’ 1 and " held together’ 1 in the celebration of their goodfellowship. While there can be mentioned many of this Class worthy of individual honors, some have taken such high standing that we cannot refrain from honoring them with this mention: George Edward Bell, who was early appointed Financial Secretary of the Athletic Association, proved his worth in the great campaign for athletics. In this connection should be mentioned Thomas Rover Johnson (famil- iarly known to us as " Bus " ), who became the manager of the Track Team during its organization. Of Harold Harrison Dutton, business manager of this, our Cherry Tree, we do not need to say more than that his great work stands before you. and his success is evident, Franklyn Hammet Myers — but ever " Frank " to us — was elected to the Presidency of the Dramatic Association, The great success of this organiza- tion is proof of the talents and industry of this fellow classman . Robert Golden Carter ( " Bob,” sir, to my friends) can truly be called " First in the hearts of his classmates. " With him should be mentioned Philip Rollins Fowle — we call him 11 Phil " — for he held the responsibility for the co- operation of all the Freshman Classes in giving the Prom. Now does our Class pay its debt to Professor Leslie Cleveland McN ' cmar for his help in arranging for the Prom; and to the Deans of the College and their wives, who were kind enough to chaperone this event. ■ 41 G.

PATTERSON Maryland MYRON TASHJIAN Massachusetts 43 Pre- Medical Class About two weeks after the Columbian College began work for the year, and all of the students taking pre-medical work had become acquainted, it was decided to organize as a class. So on Wednesday, the seventh of October, the class was organized as a class, and elected G. Vail Munsh as President. The class then looked around and elected Miss Julia H, Strobel. the only woman pre-medic, Vice-Presiden t. Then realizing that a good secretary was needed, the class elected Paul U. Vestal, Phar, D. Knowing that they intended to be a wide-awake organization, and that they would hold a few social func- tions, they elected Evan Taylor to take care of the funds. An unusual amount of class spirit was seen, the men sticking together to extremes in any points of common interest. The pre-medics are represented in the various school activities, members showing the development of their lungs in the Glee Club. The Dramatic Society received a good part of its talent from the pre-medics, while the debating societies also has pre-medic members. Some of the mem- bers are graduated pharmacists, and take an active part in the University Phar- maceutical Society. In fact, in all the college activities a pre-medic man will be found. At the Freshman Prom the pre-medics held their own with the other parts of the University, a great many of them being present, A dance was given on the 22nd of December, 1915, in the hall at the Art Building, all present pronouncing it a great success. Another was held on the 22nd of March, 1916, at the Potomac Boat Club, in Georgetown, this proving to be a$ good, even better, than the first. At this point of Vice-President withdrew from school, and A. T. Schwartz was elected to fill her place. Several of the members distinguished themselves by making fine marks in their studies, and the rest of the class, even though not making wonderful marks, set a very good standard of scholarship. The class, although not very large— twenty-three in number — has representatives from the extreme North and South, while the wild and wooly West is also represented. Persia has its representative, as well as has Greece, The school was posted during the year through " The University Hatchet 1 ' as to the work of the Pre-medical Class by their reporter George Wordinger, The class has tried to hold its own in everything con- nected with the University and hopes that it has done so.

And so it is always: — after the years have been spent in cement- ing friendships ; after acquainting ourselves with the sorrows and hopes of our fellows; always must we break these ties asunder when we take another step upward. It is indeed one of the ironies of progress that every time we ad- vance we leave behind something that we should have given anything but suc- cess to retain. And since this same success is to come in the future, it ill becomes us to halt for any undue time to consider our history. True, we might, with David Copperfield, stand aside and allow the years to merge themselves into a solemn retrospection; — but modesty forbids us thus baring our past. Sufficient to say that our own inconsequential affairs have fully occupied our minds during the time we have dwelt within the halls of George Washing- ton. We came in, as is usual with freshman classes, with fear and trembling. It might not he too much to say that those who will seek engineering positions go out with much the same feeling. All branches of our class were together for the first year or two: considering lemniscates and the Witch of Agnesi (quite a dear old girl) ; seeking to establish the truths promulgated for us in the laws of Hodgkins, Henning and Schmidt, not to pass lightly by what we heard at ' our last exercise : ,f and in ail ways generally learning by hard knocks and experience what might be expected of us as we trod the flowery paths of university knowledge. Then the first break in our ranks came, and we began to trek across the arid desert of Juniordom: that stretches out two and three years for most of us, due to our being one with Longfellow ' s hero of Excelsior and seeking knowledge as " the shades of night were falling fast. ' ’Twas in these long and lean days that cries of anguish began to arise, and the toll of those lost at sea increased mightily. Some began with the blitheness of innocence to as- certain the ultimate strength and bending moment of Mechanics and Strength of Materials; others faced the specter of Mechanism and Machine Design with no thought of the dark days to come; and still others were sacrificed on the high frequency altar of A. C, Theory and Distribution. With what deadly accuracy the forces of evil did their work is attested by a reckoning of the class roll. It is indeed fitting that we should sponser the incoming metric system by graduating as one of its units, — ten. 48 G. W. U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U. But these years have also given us our share of joys. Do we not remem- ber with unholy glee how we paraded the freshmen with their night caps and milk bottles; lustily shouting for “Free Tariff for the Milk Bottle ' We still think of the way light was turned into darkness in the fourth floor drawing room of the old " 1“ street building, to the great dismay of sundry dignified profs therein Another memory for a select few was the old standing notice (unofficial) — “There will foe no Mechanism tonight ' For those of us who frequent the laboratories there are also pictures which will be a long time fading. Can we ever forget Dean No. 1 and Dean No, 2 engaging in lin- guistic combat concerning amperage of a watt. Even now history is being made in the Mechanical Lab., when we seek to feed the festive Angora of the Post Graduates, there engaged in demonstrating their Mexican ability And now our day is drawing to a close, and the 1916 Engineers will soon be numbered with the yesterdays. While our eclipse as a class and a factor in G W, life may cause us regret, we must not pause. Rather let us step lightly over the threshold of commencement and face the problems beyond with a conscienceness that if we spend the years to come ever true to the ethics of our engineering profession, we may be allowed at that last great grad- uation to say : — “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith 1 49 G.

And so with Smith — or any other lurid appellation by which some of his friends may greet him His unfailing good humor, his friendliness, not to mention his numerous anecdotes, have served to make many a long hour in lab a nd drawing room pass quickly ; and we all wish that after we step over the threshold of commencement we may know more of that sunny disposition in the years to come.

Not only did they establish a precedent by this re volt, but they unconsciously drew the real G W. U. boosters to one side, revealing to the whole College wherein lies the talent. That group now bears the name of the Sophomore Engineers They have showed the University that the engineer ' s role is to lead, and they have led. They have showed the University that the engineer ' s role is to construct, organize and build, and they have built The University Hatchet, which has never known better years, either journalistically or financially, is controlled by this class. Both editors and one assistant business manager being on its roll The Hatchet has been compli- mented by editors of the daily papers on its great change in appearance and style of former years. In short, the present editors having had much expe- rience in the newspaper held, put the Hatchet on the same class as big dailies, only on a smaller scale. To show its capability in organization, the class has the honor of having the founder and president of the G. W. U.

Besides they have in their midst treasurer of the Association of Class Presidents, athletic representative of the Engineering College, tax represen- tative of the Engineering College, associate editor of the Cherry Tree, editor of the " Cherry Seeds, " Lord Grand High priest of the Niedzielny Society, Grand Master of Niedzielny Society, High Keeper of the Sacred Documents of the Niedzielny Society, members in the Chemical Society, members in the Engi- neering Society, members in the Skull and Circle, and, in fact, they have rep- resentatives in every big organization in G, W U, 55 Sophomore Engineering Class G.

We shall not, as other freshmen classes often do, boast of what we WILL do; but, rather, we will point with pride to what we HAVE done, and the prophecy of a brilliant future will naturally follow We are pioneers. Classes which have gone before us have been content to follow in the beaten path; but we are original. Never before has an engi- neering class organized in its first year, but we are exceptional. So take heed, and behold our illustrious class This, the first class of organized Freshman Engineers, is lead by Mr, H, H. Dutton, whose fame is rapidly spreading as he pilots us on toward the pinnacle of success. Watch him, and watch us make memorable footprints on the sand of time. We sincerely regret that there is not a class in the University fit for us to take as a model; but ' tis always so with the truly great. Our ideals are so far above those of the Sophs that we fear for them. We hope that they may mend their ways and pattern themselves after us, that they may reach the coveted goal of honor. We trust, however, that they will not take their defects so seriously at heart, and join our class after the June finals. But such is the way of life, and if in our onward march toward graduation we may aid any of the lost, strayed or delayed members of the class ahead, let us welcome them into the fold. We have an efficient organization. Although small, we are unified. Every- thing that the University attempts receives our hearty support. At the Fresh- man Prom we were well represented, and helped pay off the obligations which the Sophs found too great for them. In support of athletics we have worked long and hard, and with their return we feel rewarded and know that we will do our share towards making our teams an honor and a credit to our school. In other lines our energetic President is the guiding hand in the publication of this book, and others of our class assist him. Truly our claim to greatness is justified. We must stop. The Editor has allowed but a limited space, and we find it impossible to relate our achievements, so let us caution you to " watch us grow ■ ■■ ■ a i iruiiiiirmuf i ir 59 G. W. U.

THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. 0. ARCHITECTURE The course in Architecture was established in the George Washington University in 1904, when the main Arts and Sciences Building was located at Fifteenth and H streets. When this building was vacated, and the Depart- ments of Arts and Sciences were removed into smaller quarters on I street, the Architectural course was dropped by the college faculty. It was then that Professor Bibb came to the aid of the homeless students, and continued the former studies in Architecture at the studios on Seventeenth street. The following year the Remey School was founded next to the Riggs Bank Building, and further advancement was made, with Professors Bibb and Hooton assisting. Here it was learned that Architecture, the greatest of all the Arts, was to be replaced in its rightful position in the George Washington Uni- versity. Through the earnest efforts of the local chapter of the American In- stitute of Architects the full course for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Architecture was re-established during the college year of 1912-13. At this time the G, W, U. Architectural Club w r as formed to advance its present mem- bership of thirty-two. During the years of 1912-13 and 1913-14 the Architectural Class published a fifty-page booklet of plates of the students 1 work and general information pertaining to the Architectural course in this University. Each edition of this booklet was of one thousand copies, which were mailed to every practicing architect in the States of Maryland. Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia, and the District of Columbia, as well as to every preparatory school likely to advance students to this University. These year books were published under the direct supervision and aid of Prof. A. L. Harris, This year, 1915-16 has seen the greatest advancement under the tutelage of Professors Alfred Bibb Bedford Brown, A, L. Harris, and H, Delos Smith in all the Architectural classes. The Freshman Class has seventeen students, the Architectural Club, with its increasing membership, has prominent archi- tects lecture at its monthly meetings. The additions to the architectural library during this year represent a cash expenditure of two hundred dollars, which is infinitesmial to the value of the complete library donated by the Washington Chapter of the A. L A., and also the library of the American Insti- tute of Architects. These two additions amount to several hundred books and plates, many of which are the original prints and of immense value. The total valuation of the Architectural Library has reached a most creditable sum, and now compares favorably with other college libraries. 68 Architects B H HA 8.IS ENIOR H. WARD STUTLER,., . , .

THE LAW SCHOOL The Law School, established in 1865, is the oldest in the city of Washing- ton, Its course of instruction for the degree of Bachelor of Laws originally requiring two years was increased in 1898 to three years. A year of graduate work was added in 1877 leading to the degree of Master of Laws The curriculum lias since been increased by a course of study leading to the degree of Master of Patent Law, The Law School was one of the group of law schools which in 1900 organized the Association of American Law Schools and it has remained a member of the Association since that time. This Association includes forty- six of the most progressive law schools of the country and is committed to the policy of advancement in legal education. As this school maintains the standards of the Association, work certified by it is given a maximum of credit by other law schools of the country. This enables students who are unable to complete their studies in Washington, to continue them at other institutions with a minimum loss of time and work. The School aims to give a thorough legal training to students whose education and maturity fit them to pursue serious professional study. Over sixty per cent of its students are college graduates or have had some college training and though a four years high school course at present qualifies for ad- mission a year or more of college w r ork in English, Latin, History and Eco- nomics is advised, and, beginning with the academic year 1916-17, a year of college work will be required of all applicants under 21 years of age The University permits the first year of law work to be conn ted as the fourth year of college work for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, thus enabling students to obtain both the academic and professional degrees in six years. The primary function of the law school is to teach students how to study the law r and imparting information is of secondary importance. Learning rules of law without reference to the facts and reasons on which they are based, results in vagueness and misunderstanding. Moreover the field of law is too vast for any student to cover in a few years. For these reasons the “case system 1 ' of instruction is used. The student studies decided cases in which the fundamental principles of taw were first declared, and other cases show- ing their development. He receives his mental training by analyzing the facts and reasons which led to the decision and at the same time becomes thoroughly familiar vrith the rule of law, its origin, evolution and application as limited by the reasons on which it is based. The exercise gives him not only knowledge but powder to solve new problems and saves him from be- coming a mere “case " lawyer. G. W, U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W, U. The substantive law is almost wholly taught by professional teachers employing the case method and giving all their time to the school; the practice courses are conducted by lawyers and judges in active practice. The course of study is not local in its scope but constitutes a thorough preparation for the practice of law in any English speaking jurisdiction. It satisfies the professional study required for admission to the Bar examinations of the District of Columbia and all other jurisdictions of the United States. The school has conferred over 2,500 degrees, and its graduates are now practic- ing in every state of the Union. ’« •• » 77 j ! n . n 1 1 1 | n ' 1 1 n 1 1 j i umi.fc. Law School Faculty G. W.

Having grown weary of the prosaic task of making brick without straw, the Children of the Class of 1916 entered into its pilgrimage thru the Wilderness of Law. 2. Many were the plagues sent against the Children, for they understood not the ways of the jurist. 3. Their Moses, Dean Gregory, lead them valiantly on, and but few there were who succumbed to the plagues of Blackstone, Littleton and Coke, 4. Shortly, however; they found that they were but at the beginning of (heir journeys, and that the Red Sea of spring examinations lay before them, 5. But they had a sturdy guide and steadfast leaders and the strong hearts of youth, and while all were not able, owing to their sins of omission, to cross dry shod, few, indeed, there were who could not ford the flood, 6. The crossing of these great waters was followed by a season of ease, for the land near the waters was green and very full of fruit, 7. And it was the end of the first year, and it was called the Freshman Year. 8. Which, being interpreted, meaneth a year of ignorant conceit. Chapter II 1. Urged forward by an insatiable desire to reach the Land of Promise, flowing with milk and honey, the Children forged ahead. 2. And the desolation of the Wilderness again came to their vision, 3. There were murmurings among the Children and many would have returned to their former task-masters. It was learned that their Moses was not to enter into the Promised Land, and they were sick at heart. r i -I — H — fr- .0. f nm! G. W. U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. D, 4, But the Children were not forgotten in their tribulations, and they were given a new leader, Dean Fraser, who was destined to be their Joshua, 5, Ever did this new leader urge them on to greater endeavors, yet at all times, both by day and by night, did he aid and assist them 6, By his learning he commanded the respect of all: by his valiant leader ship he claimed their admiration, and by his personal kindnesses he gained their love, 7, But yet other trials lay before the Children ere they should enter into the Land of Promise, 8, For lo ! The land was barren and they suffered much. 9, And it was decreed, " As did the Children of Israel eat a quail a day, so shall ye devour from this day forth a lecture on Real Property a day and cases there unto appended. " 10, And after many days it came to pass that the Children were loath to devour more Real Property, for it w T as a plague unto them, and many were a-siek of it t and some few even unto death. 11, And then of a sudden the Wilderness gave way to the Valley of Pleasure, and the curse was removed. 12, And now it was the end of the second year of their journeys, and it was called the Junior Year. Chapter III 1. The Valley of Pleasure was fertile, but was not yet the Land of Prom- ise, and it would not support them long. 2. And the Children pushed on yet again into the Wilderness. 3. And it was known that the Promised Land lay yet but a little way ahead, so spies were sent out that they might spy out the land, 4. And one spy, whose name was Potter, returned and reported what he had seen, saying: 5. " I have passed the Bar of the River Jordan, and have viewed the Land which has been given unto you. There are many giants there, but the fruits of the Land are exceeding good, ,, 6. And hearing these words the Children took heart again, and now are come in sight of the land of Promise, 7. Some of them whose sins are too great may not be permitted to enter. 8. And yet others, fatigued by the trials of the wanderings, may not be able successfully to negotiate the Bar of the Great River, which now alone separates them from the lands flowing with milk and honey, 9. Yet they press forward undaunted, and deposit this memorial by the way, that those who come after may read and follow in their footsteps with- out fear. 10. And it is in the third year of their journeys , and it is called the Senior Year, Selah. -m .« ■, t- ' ■ •’ - ■■ t- ' H ' -» — § G. W, U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U.

" That was the finale of our history as a Freshman Class, And those who took heed have been well repaid. We have had the honor thus far of being termed a Class of Distinction, and it is our purpose to continue so until our day of Cap and Gown, It is usually conceded that between freshmen and junior years the number of students will drop perhaps a fourth or even a third of the initial enrollment. No such concession, however, need be granted the Class of Nineteen -Seven- teen, We have lost but twenty-nine of those students who registered as Freshmen with the Class, A comparison with the classes which have gone be- fore us alone can show the remarkable standard the Class has set, a standard which subsequent classes well might look upon as ideal. Our place in the participation of University functions is most gratifying. In every field of endeavor reflecting credit upon George Washington University may be seen the names of members of the Junior Class of the Law School Nor have we neglected Class harmony in our forward stride, A smoker was held at the University Club in November, the first of a series to be held during the year t which not only tightened the bonds of friendship of class-mates but afforded the opportunity of meeting our Professors socially. Gradually have the principles which the individual subjects thus far mastered been molded together until what perhaps appeared a year ago to be an impregnable maze is forming a clearly discernible whole %vhich w r hen mastered will permit us to present ourselves before the various Bars of these United States and proclaim our readiness to enter upon our lifes ' work ever remembering our duty to uphold the dignity of the profession and keep it above reproach. . , a, i ti » »■- 93 Junior Law Class G, W.

But my dreams of a consummation In this scheme of things as they are, Is — a FEE, and a Case and a Client When I have passed the bar. Professor King astonished his class some weeks ago while lecturing in Damages by the following : “Every effect has a cause, otherwise, how could this effect of which this cause was the cause, be the effect which was the effect of which this cause was the cause. Isn ' t that clear ? 11 Freshman Law Class FRESHMAN LAW CLASS The Freshmen found themselves plunged into the serious study of the [aw from the very beginning. Decisions of the courts, from the time when courts of England started to keep records down to the present time were studied to learn the points of law and the developments to the present day. The class organized on November 8, 1915, and proceeded to elect officers. Thomas R, Manning was elected President and John T Graves, Secretary. The students of the morning section later withdrew and organized separately. There is, however, a good spirit of harmony and co-operation between the two organizations. The officers of the Morning Section are; Cassius M. Dowell, President, G. V, Weikert, Secretary, and F. E. Carter, Treasurer. The class is composed of sober and serious-minded people They are older than usually found in freshman classes. They have passed the kittenish frivoli- ties ordinarily attributed to freshmen. Most of them have had college training. Most of them also, are wrestling with the problems of life and are providing for their own support. Many are employed in the Executive Departments, a large number at the Capitol, some in lawyers’ offices, and some are officers in the Army and some in the Navy. Quite a few are married and have families, and one is a grandfather, who is a real live freshman and a good student. The number of “co-eds” shows an increase over last year. This year there are four in the morning section and five in the evening section. The greatest social event of the year was the Freshman Promenade on Feb ruary 4, 1916, at the Raleigh, One hundred and thirty couples danced and exe- cuted artistic steps to the strains of music produced by the Fort Myer Orches- tra, It was a beautiful affair. We didn’t know so many pretty girls could be gathered together for one evening. It was a distinctly Freshman affair. It was a great social success, and we feel proud that it was also a financial success At the present writing, there is a project to hold a Freshman Smoker some time in March. By the interest already shown, it is assured to be a great get-to- gether. The Freshman Law Class believes in a greater George Washington Uni- versity and want to further its cause. They believe in its strong principles and support its activities. They want athletics, and support it in all ways. Over seventy per cent of the class signed the Athletic and Publication pledge. 99 , .. • ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ !■ ' I " ■ l‘»l t r t t t ii ■ n » | j|| § i j in ■ ■ »-T frTra-iiii»i-nr - T t r- -t-.-t 1 j | r i « •« • - - «■ ■ G.

THE MEDICAL SCHOOL The Department of Medicine ranks among the oldest medical colleges in the United States, being the seventeenth medical school to be founded in this country. In March, 1825, the first lecture was given in this department, it being then called the National Medical College — a branch of the old Colum- bian College. Some years later this name was changed to the Department of Medicine of the Columbian University, and later to the Department of Medi- cine of the George Washington University. According to present-day standards, the original department could not be called a very wonderful school. There were at the beginning six profes- sors, giving a two-years 1 course of five months each. In 1879, along with a general advancement of medical requirements throughout the country, the course was made to run seven months for three years. In 1893 a four-year course was established, and, added to this, and still further increasing the efficiency of the school, the University Hospital and University Dispensary were established in 1898, From that time forward the Medical School has been steadily growing in efficiency and size. In 1902 the present building was opened, followed in 1903 by the opening of an addition to the hospital. It was found at this time that to fully meet the advanced requirements it was no longer possible to con- tinue the night classes, so that, in 1906, the last night class entered. On Jan- uary 1, 1914, a one-year pre-medical year was made obligatory. This hasty review of the advancement of the Medical School in size and requirements should make its students even more proud of its present thor- oughly modern state. 106 Medical Faculty G. W. U.

Doubtlessly, some of our number expected to be prescribing and performing major operations after a short sojourn in our midst. If so, these thoughts were soon given up, and we settled down under the guidance of our excellent faculty to hard work. Year by year passed by, some of our number falling by the wayside, others filling up the gaps. Oftentimes we were tempted to give up in despair, but a look back on the w r ork accomplished encouraged us to go on, until at the present time we arc virtually knocking at the gates of the profession of medi- cine (with fluttering hearts) and with meek voices, asking admittance. We would not have the reader believe that our stay here has held out nothing to us except hard work. Quite the opposite has been the case Our clinical work in our Senior and Junior years has in the main been most enjoy- able We have found our obstetrical w r ork a delight and joy forever; in fact, we believe that when it comes to making midnight and early morning calls, we have old Paul Revere " backed up against the wall. " Besides, Paul never had to carry a miniature operating room in a satchel. We laugh again when we think of the antics and witticisms of our " Weber and Fields, " Quirk and Reuter, and we wonder how our " Croup Quartette, " Messrs, Collins, Stratton, Ryan and Reuter, ever escaped arrest and imprisonment for disturbing the peace. But enough of this, — let us look to the future. We believe our Class to be the equal and. we hope, superior to our predecessors We have done an excellent work here at school; let us realize that our real instruction has just begun, and it will be necessary to make the most of every opportunity to expect success.

By our hard and conscientious work we have attained the distinction of becoming upper-classmen. In the fall of 1913 there gathered at the medical building from the four corners of the world, seventy-six men to form one of the largest classes in the history of the school. At that time we organized, or rather attempted to organize our present body. " ' Politics 1 ' separated us into various units and it was not until the coming of Wm. T. Gill, Jr. t that we acquired our present strong organization. Our first official act was the adoption of the honor system of student government, consisting of an honor committee and subject to the cooperation and supervision of the faculty, A great deal of uncertainty was manifested as to what the " ' cooperation of the faculty " 1 might mean, but, " we came to criticise and remained to praise 1 for this " cooperation " ' has often proven our salva- tion. The major portion of the first year v r as consumed by adjustment to our new surroundings. Only one sad event, the death of Mr. Pearsons, marred our otherwise pleasant year. The fall of 1914 saw forty-nine of the faces assembled to begin the new work, without the confusion of the previous year. At the fall election James Houghton was chosen to guide our class through its perils, and acquitted himself in a most worthy manner. The present school year being our third, we feel that we now have the school habit, " three times making a habit. " A few losses from the old crowd and a few gains by new students and our class numbers forty-six. " One more year " is not our class yell but it is our class thought, hope, and expectation. , .•«.«. .4 m».+ 4+ ' +4+ ' «. 4 „ . U l) ••» -4 . .+-.4. .4.. |. . G, W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U.

Because of the sudden raising of the entrance requirements, we were the smallest class in the school, being only 24 strong But what we lacked in numbers we made up in ability, and it was not long before we were setting a standard for the upper classmen, as well as for the members of future classes. When we reassembled in the fall of 1914, but 15 of us had survived. We received 6 additions from outside sources and so started our sophomore year with 21 members Our achievements are so well known that to dwell on them here would be trite But in order that future classes may have a good example to follow, a brief history is given The History of the George Washington Medical Class of 1918. 1914 The Dean welcomes us to the Uni- versity.

ISO NURSES SCHOOL CxADaidy LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT Of the Senior Class of 1916 We, the members of the Senior Class of the G. W. U. Hospital Training School, City of Washington, District of Columbia, being moderately sound in mind and comfortably so in body, with the exception of a few gray hairs and wrinkles gained by losing our rest periods for varioiis reasons, do hereby make the following disposition of our goods and chattels, effects and belong ings ere we depart to " fresh fields and pastures new : f! Article L It is with a feeling of sadness that we hereby bequeath to the incoming graduating class our position as Seniors, with all the responsibility and dignity accompanying it. Let them not become discouraged when they make the mournful discovery that the Senior life is in reality filled with more prose than poetry. Article II, We also leave to the supervisors our badge of dignity (the black hand), and to those whom they may fit our uniforms of blue. But if some maiden be inclined to glory too much in her newly acquired robe of wis- dom, let her remember that they have been worn by others with equal grace and dignity. These attractive uniforms have often been used as a cloak for multitudes of sins, but it is decidedly better to follow the straight and narrow way, especially shunning all sins of omission. Article III. To said class we also bequeath the bright and shiny ster- ilizers and instruments in the operating room, which are scrubbed every Sun- day for exercise, and as we have been pretty energetic at times, some of them may be a little scratched and the sterilizers patched. But these are to become the property of said girls only on condition that they set apart at the end of each month a day of fasting and lamentation, when they shall sadly mourn the departure of about half of their $7,00, Article IV, To that most capable girl who is dry-eyed and will not flirt with the students, we bequeath our beloved M, F.. with all the Probs and troubles which go with them. Article V, The Senior Home we bequeath to those girls who. for various reasons, desire to be as far from Miss Dorsett as possible. As this section is a very convenient place to hold midnight feasts, provided no hungry rat causes undue commotion, or the olive bottle does not fall on the floor too hard. G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W, U. Article VL We further bequeath several old rat traps, which can be found stored away in dark corners. However, these rats have become fairly well educated through close attention to the brilliant Senior conversations in the diet kitchens, and will in turn cunningly avoid all such instruments of torture. Article VII. To all future Seniors we leave our class room chairs- These “seats of the mighty, 11 on which they will find the initials of most of the stu- dents scratched while endeavoring to recite lessons which they had not pre- pared. We would advise them instead of expending energy on trying to study them out, to apply themselves with zeal to the comprehension of all such things that every graduate ought to know. Article VIII. To any two members of the Intermediate Class whose sole aim and purpose in life is to graduate with the least possible exertion, and to that end learn only the first and last questions of their lessons, we bequeath the chairs at each end of the first row. Article IX. We gladly bequeath to said class all our text-books and papers, which are in excellent condition, as we have taken great care of these priceless things. Our Dietetics notes t which to the unitiated may appear a trifle dry, will, nevertheless, be of great service to those individuals who are anticipating matrimony. We notice several are taking great interest in all recipes and are willing to be cook every week. Article X. With sad and sorrowful hearts we relinquish our claim upon Miss Glascock, who has tried hard to show us our duty in all things, and has deprived herself of her morning nap to come out in all kinds of weather to start us out right for the day. Article XI. As a compensation for the loss of us, we would suggest that the incoming Seniors frame in deep gilt moulding large pictures of each mem- ber of this class, and hang all eighteen of them on the walls of the Reception Room. This we impose upon them as a sacred duty and privilege. In witness whereof we, the Class of 1916, do herewith set our hands and seals, and declare this to be our last Will and Testament on this, the 6th day of June, nineteen hundred and sixteen. Class of 1916 per A. I. G. Signed, subscribed and declared by the Class of 1916 to be their last Will and Testament in the presence of us these witnesses, who hereby subscribe our names : LOUISE HARROVER, President.

To see her you would not believe this, for she possesses a wit as brilliant as her hair, and a delightfully magnetic personality, making her thoroughly lovable and charming. ERNESTINE MAE DODD District of Columbia Don ' t worry over trouble, it never broke a date yet , When Dodd is wound up she is just like a phonograph. But there is not one who does not like to hear her when she gets started. Good-natured, never gets perturbed, full of fun, makes friends with all, is intimate with a few, loves one at a time. MARY GALLAGHER Ireland We know n subject ourselves , or we know where we can find information upon it. Mary, our Irish lassie, can give you informa- tion on any subject.

MINNIE HARWOOD HALL .....Virginia Vice-President, 1914-16. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour upon others without getting a few drops on yourself. Behold this stately maiden with all the grace of womanhood. Her predominating quality is originality, and is shown in everything the Seniors undertake.

MARY LOUISE HARROVER. .

Louise is very dignified, and at times very solemn ; at least she tries to make us think so, though her brown eyes dance with mischief. Her pet hobby is neatness, and she not only lives up to it herself, but generally contrives to make those around her do likewise. G. W. U. " f--n — » i|imiii it. «■ !

She is always ready for a frolic, and is just as enthusiastic over her duties. With all her faults and virtues she has learned the art of making friends, and those with whom she is associated always love her.

Starting as we did on our journey of three years of hard work and study with a class of seventeen, it makes us sad to think that hard luck and Dan Cupid are responsible for our class dwindling down to five, but we have re- solved to stick and work faithfully together for our sheepskin we hope to get in T7. We have been discouraged time and time again, only to find ourselves pounding over our studies again with more ambition than ever before, looking forward for the final exams to prove we have mastered our studies and fully prepared and capable to be Seniors. We are very busy this year, for our importance increases with our age, and our one aim in life is to teach the younger nurses the art of controlling an unconscious patient, as one of our class members has proven that pulling the nose is an excellent remedy. Our Motto: ‘‘Quality, Not Quantity, ,f 138 Intermediate and Junior Nurses G. W + LL THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U. JUNIOR NURSES 1 HISTORY Listen folks! Being editor of the 1918 Class, one of my many duties is to write our class history, and as there is a considerable chasm unfilled between this and last March, to fill it up I can only give a brief sketch of the things and matters as they have passed. So far we have led an extremely uneventful life, and having only seen the “charitable’ 1 side of the work, have had few adventures of a startling nature; consequently you will probably think our little story prosaic and dulL We have all spent hard days of trouble and toil on M. and F., and have shed the usual amount of Salt Solution that the Normal Prob is relieved of during her time in that “Haven of Rest. 11 Never will we forget the first time we were sent to the operating room with a patient, requested to wait upon a visiting doctor, or obey the stern command of an interne. My, how we trembled with fear and excitement! But we do not for these reasons intend to quit or throw aside such im- portant and interesting work, but are determined to forget our daily feelings and trials, and to put to a test our patience and firmness of purpose still to urge us on to keep another purpose. We have formed that of putting the powers of our mind and body to a severe test and of seeing just what we are capable. The night supervisor has worn out several extra pairs of shoes, and the electrician has been kept busier than ever before repairing bells that she has put out of commission in the " wee sma ' hours of the night " in her vain effort to keep awake those who have been, (may I say so fortunate?) as to serve a term on night duty. We can now distinguish a tongue depresser from a stupe-wringer, as well as various microbes, with the use of a microscope. (Thanks to Dr. Lyons for that). Have a faint conception of the science of the structure of organic bodies: have learned to arise when our Seniors enter a room; also to allow them to precede us when entering the elevator, and go hungry, that they may be fed, and etc. Consequently we feel that we are as capable and could wear the little black hand around our " Crown of Glory " (our cap) with as much grace and dignity as those who have fought the battles and shared the pleas- ures of old G. W. U. Hospital for three years. Quite a number of this wide-awake class were laid up in “Dry Docks " for repair after the Christmas festivities, but all are out again; back to their old haunts, diligently striving for our fame, fortune and happiness, which we hope to gain in due time. So here ' s hoping we will all be present next March with smiling faces and tired feet to greet the new class. 140 G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. B.

" What’ll Oi be saying, doctor? " " Oh. say anything. Count one, two, three and up,” murmured the intern drowsily, " Wan, two, three, four, five, six,” began the patient. When the young doctor, with a start, opened his eyes he was counting huskily, " Tin hundred an ' fifty-six, tin hundred an fifty-seven, tin hundred and fifty-eight,” — Ex, 142 DENTISTRY AD Cimn V G, W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G, W. U. DENTISTRY Thirty years ago the Columbian University adopted a baby department, that of Dentistry, Thirty years seems a very long time looking to the future, but when viewed backward, and summing up what has been done, and how the alternate successes and failures, the struggles and the hopes and depres- sions and the rest, it seems but a span. In the year 1886 the Dental Department — the baby department — of the Columbian University had its beginning. A conference was held by the Medi- cal Faculty, and Doctors Donaldson, Smythe and Noble, these last gentlemen being at that time the oldest and most reputable dental practitioners in our city. At this conference, upon the recommendation of the dental represen- tatives, Doctors J. Hall Lewis and Henry C, Thompson were appointed to fill the dental chairs of the new school. Dr. Lewis was elected the first Dean of the Dental Faculty, Now, these two gentlemen were rankly green at the work of establishing a department, and as much so at lecture work. Hence it is not difficult to picture the embarrassment under which they endeavored to carry on the work. To give some idea of the undertaking, it may be stated that this work included all dental branches which are now carried on by twenty-seven instructors, and which were at that time taught (?) by these two men and one demonstrator. Between them they had to instruct in Prosthetics, Orthodontia, Operative Dentistry, Dental Pathology, Dental Materia Medica and incidentally some Physiology and Regional Anatomy, all these to be han- dled by two novices. Well, they had capital, and that was ambition, and they went to work. Strange to say. with all this talent (?) students did not fall over each other to matriculate, Yes, some did come, but sadly few in num- bers. It would, however, be well to state that those few were good men who have been successful, for they are now among the most progressive operators of our city. More than this, many of them are actively interested in our de- partment at the present time. For some time little real progress was made, and the department did not hold a very exalted place, and it was felt very keenly by the teachers, who held themselves responsible for the success of this department. Sometimes this indifference took a very comical phase, At one of the commencements there were only a few graduates. In his address to the classes the then President gave advice to and showered congratulations upon the Medicos (a large class by the way), and praised them to the audience, but not a word to or about the dental graduates, to whom this affair was an epoch in their lives. In the au- dience sat a lady who felt an interest in the dentists and the department. In consequence she was greatly disappointed when there was no mention made of them at this commencement. Feeling somewhat indignant, she wrote a note to the President expressing her disappointment, and asking why they were ignored. From that time the department received more attention , There being only two lecturers on dental subjects, it can be well imagined that there was no play. Nevertheless, they determined that by persistent effort time would crown them with success. To get some idea of dental equip- ment at that time, it may be said that our infirmary could afford only four chairs. It was blessed, however, in the number of clinicians (?) ; those num- bered six of the best and most reputable men in the dental profession in Washington, But. like so many blessings, this had its drawbacks in the fact 144 G. W, U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W, U. that these gentlemen were so busy in their offices that it would be hard to recall a single clinic that they ever gave but that duty was relegated to the two poor lecturers as a diversion. The students in that first year numbered about ten f to accommodate whom there were four old chairs in the infirmary, this being presided over by one demonstrator, Dr. R. Finley H unt, One item it may be well to mention, the interest being in the contrast with the present. It is that the entire bill for infirmary material that year amounted to $68.60. The progress of the department was remarkably slow, although steady, and each year the former graduates showed greater interest, and willingly gave their services to help lift the burden from the shoulders of the few for which those lecturers can never adequately express their gratitude. After many ups and more downs, the department came under the present regime of Dr. J. Roland Walton, the present Dean, who seemed to infuse new life info the whole corps of teachers, instructors and students. New equipment to the value of $5,563.00 was installed; infirmary space increased two hundred per cent,, and prosthetic laboratories increased to even a greater proportion. This year the student body has reached the highest number — one hundred and ten students — and the teachers and lecturers to manage these classes number twenty-seven. To emphasize the improvement in this department, it would be well to mention the fact that this year the cost of material necessary to carry on the infirmary work amounted to $1,575,00, a very healthy growth for an infant department of thirty years agone everyone must admit. The faculty had a recent meeting, for they have adopted the plan of regular meetings, and appointed a committee to formulate plans, the object of which is to sys- tematize the teaching, more rigid observance of infirmary rules, closer tabu- lation of students 1 work, and more rigid scrutiny of infirmary practice. It also enlisted several lecturers among the profession to give special lectures to students and demonstrators. The demonstrators are now about to make arrangements to form a " Black " Club for the purpose of studying the science of cavity preparation, all of which makes one feel that the dental department is now, or soon will be, one of the most progressive of the George Washington University. This brief resume should not be closed without sounding the praises of the corps of instructors and demonstrators whose praiseworthy zeal has con- tributed so much to the present success of this department.

U, a heterogeneous conglomera- tion of men and near men from all parts of this great and glorious country of ours, from Maine to California, and beyond — from the Hawaiian Islands and far-away Lithuania. All sizes and dispositions, the short and tall, large and small, both physically and mentally. After employing the services of sev- eral volunteer Sherlock Holmeses, we finally assembled in the Histological Lab, and made the acquaintance of our first professor in college, the man who presides in the land of the dead, Dr. " Gentlemen, you ' ve got to git it, " Davis, He led us through the many sulci and cavernous sinuses of the human body — ■ through the smells of the dissecting room that to this day are as delicately scented as ever — as we said before, he was our first professor, but in our memories, by no means the least. Next we met Drs, Monroe and Hornaday, the gentlemen who juggle with the atoms and molecules in that very intri- cate art known as Chem -mystery, Dr. Hornaday led us through the smokes and fumes of the chemical lab in search of that ever-present, but very elusive, unknown. Dr. Stout gave us the sympathetic system. (We hope the Dean has this " system " ), and explained what a sandwich and glass of milk does whether you pay for it or not. We have studied bugs, and saw what they will do. We have studied Drugs that will kill you and Drugs that will make you w r ell. and then- — Teeth, we’ve carved them and pulled them, filled them and crowned them, studied them and dreamed them, Forsooth’ my kingdom for a tooth! This year we weclonied two new foreign members to our class, one from the cold, dreary plains of Poland, and one from the land of the cherry blossom, and now our representatives encircle the globe, and the class can proudly say that the sun never sets on the homes of the members of the class of nineteen sixteen. We are now nearing our final exams, and realizing how very little we really know. We’ve had our one big strike, and our banquet, our quartette and our team. We thank our instructors for the many courtesies they have shown us, and we feel that, as a class, we ' ve worked hard and tried to do our level best. Recently two new subjects have been added, and in our darkest moments from all sides we hear that everything will be Black, The sun is slowly setting on our college days; no more will the quartette sing, and the patients in the hospital wdll rest as before. We will take with us many fond recollections of G. W, U., and we hope our careers will be in keeping with that greatest of all Americans from whom this institution received its name — George Washington, 148 G. W, V. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U.

After roll call we found that four of our members had left us for other schools; Mr, Hooper attending school at Atlanta, Plugge and Diaz at University of Penn- sylvania. and Mr, Heald at Tuft’s College. While missing these students very much, we hope that they will have great success where they are t and also hope that we might see them at some future time. Before many days the political “bosses " were " buzzing " around the class and at our first class meeting we elected the most worthy gentleman, Paul Sherwood Gilliam, as our leader. As he hails from Norfolk, Va, p we know that he will be an able leader. The class has a fine " indoor sport ' 1 in Organic Chemistry, and the way the class play the game it will be a great success, " Coach " Horgan claims that he will have a good team for Dr, Hornaday by the end of the year, and here ' s hoping the fellows will train, because the class knows no defeat as yet, February first we went against our Bacteriology examination, and it was " some " exam. Dr. Lyons had better show his love for the dental class when he corrects the papers, because the class, as a whole, feel as though their minds were dull that night. (Except " Spirochetes " Bowen). Now that the second half-year is under way, we are all down to the hard grind again. Always looking ahead for the Senior year and the approaching Senior class of the Dean ' s, w r hich we understand is hard. By the time this book goes to press we will be about to the end of our Junior year, and it has been shown that the class contains a lot of " pep, " and also a goodly share of hard workers. Our great desire is to gain our coveted D. D. S, T and all our thoughts are centered in that direction 164 Junior Dental Class G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U. JUNIOR DENTAL CLASS ROLL JAMES I.

The first and most natural event of the class was to elect an executive and inferior officers. The following were elected: Mr. Henry Clay Lowry, of Detroit, Mich., President; Mr. John Blake Copping, of Prince George ' s County, Md,, Vice-President; Mr. John Armstead Boston, of Warrenton, W. Va., Treasurer; Mr. Michael Harris, of Rhode Island, Secretary, and Mr. Roger Allen Brown, of Cedar Falls, Iowa, Class Reporter. Upon becoming familiar with our surroundings and our initial examina- tions drawing near, our second step in the framing of the class constitution was to adopt the " Honor System, " with an M Honor Committee " having the power to enforce its principles. This committee is composed of the follow- ing : Mr. Edwards, chairman; Mr. Lowry, Mr. Keroes, Mr. Frank and Mr. Brown We are proud to state that this committee has had very little oppor- tunity to exercise its power. The class has stormed through a dozen examina- tions with great success. The Freshmen Dental Class of 1915-16 will hold a banquet in the near future, which will create a further brotherly feeling, and will encourage the slogan, " On to Our Junior Year.

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE OF PHARMACY The National College of Pharmacy, which is the outgrowth of the Colum- bian Pharmaceutical Association, organized in April, 1871, was chartered under the provisions of an act of Congress in 1872. and opened its doors to students November 11 of that year. In February, 1906, it became a member of the edu- cational system of the George Washington University. The President of the University is ex-officio President of the National College of Pharmacy, and the College is represented in the Presidents ' Council by its Dean. The George Washington University National College of Pharmacy has many advantages not possessed by other colleges of pharmacy. Its location in Washington, its extensive curriculum, its careful management, and its ex- perienced faculty unite in producing it an idealistic standard. Thorough efficiency in the ma nagement of the affairs of the College is obtained by the manner in which it is governed. The members of the College are the leading pharmacists of the District of Columbia, men who are thor- oughly conversant with the demands and requirements of the profession. From this body twelve trustees are selected for terms of three years each, four trustees being elected each year in June. The trustees keep in close contact with the affairs of the College by frequent meetings given over exclu- sively to the administration of College matters. With the classes of the Col- lege averaging twenty-five to thirty-five students, it follows that great indi- viduality of instruction is obtained. The building itself, a three-story and basement structure, designed and built in accordance with the ideas of the Board of Trustees, is used for educa- tional purposes only. Each laboratory is amply equipped with modern appar- atus and appliances for demonstrations and experimental work. The demand for the services of graduates of the College is in excess of the supply. The scope of its course, combined with the thoroughness with which it is taught, produce qualities sought and appreciated by proprietors, managers and manufacturers, and no graduate ever has difficulty in securing lucrative employment, a condition which speaks most favorably for the College. 162 G.

VAIL MINICK Historian and Editor The latter being elected on March 9, 1916, and also elected College Editor on March 9, 1916, Not much class activity has been displayed thus far. but what was under- taken was very well attended. Soon after the class was organized a theater party was held, and the class attended to the man. Just after the Keith Thea- ter Party a small banquet was held, at which a few speeches were made. The class quartette gave a few songs, which was much enjoyed, the quartette being composed of Davis, Payewski. Minick. Dudley. On February 4, 1916. the class took a trip to the National Vaccine and Antitoxin Institute, making a thorough examination of their laboratories, and many important facts were pointed out, which will always be a help to each one taking the trip. Much interest has been taken on the part of the members of the class in bowling. Two bowling teams are listed, and each Tuesday evening they meet, and the losing team agreeing to banquet the class at the end of the year. The class is doing much to raise the standard of pharmaceutical prepara- tions as sold in Washington. Each week several samples of various things bought from drug stores are analyzed, and their strength noted. If they are above or below par. the people are notified. When the class is graduated the world will receive that many good, efficient, practical pharmacists. f , .+ . | f-) 4 ■ »- -4 --4 ' ■ ■♦■-4 ■ •- -4— •- -M ». G. W. 0. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U.

The words are full of life and flame And you, good reader, soon shall ken How Pharmacy — ’18 , rose to fame. Mark thee these words well, gentle reader, for in them is told happenings of great moment, for like all properly run classes the officers were chosen first, and these were, Stevens Hughes, President: J. D. McIntyre. Vice-Presi- dent; L. M. Postun, Secretary; R. Raymond Bjorgo, Treasurer: and M. S. Schwartz, Class Editor. And to celebrate the joyous occasion of the Class’s organization “Steve ,T Hughes entertained the class with a smoker and the “Bunch " and the faculty came forth in mighty array. Then in betwix ' t work and study came several enjoyable social evenings, with the Messrs. Lawrence Taylor, M. S, Schwartz, and Wallis A. Fuhrman as hosts, and wit and humor ran rampant. Thus we come to the Christmas Holidays, when under the able super- vision of Ralph Dean, “Larry " Taylor and Kang Li our Christinas Dance transpired and the comely faces and nimble toes attested to the popularity of " our boys " and a real Christmas Tree heavily hung with gifts made the occasion all the merrier. A Class Pin was chosen and now adorns the manly bosom of each member of the Class, which also presented one to our beloved, Dean Kajiisowski, Lawrence Taylor again entertained the Class and the “Freshman Prom " was participated in most loyally. And so come we to an end, for lack of space, and coming must omit many and sundry noble deeds, but would ' st thou ever think of any Class, that though small has tried to be no insignificant part of this great University, then wQiild’st thou think of PHARMACY — 1918.

DEPARTMENT OF VETERINARY MEDICINE The veterinary department is the youngest department of the University, and since its inception, progress has been the chief slogan. More fortunate than many schools of similar character, from the beginning it had access to the well-equipped laboratories of the Department of Chemistry and Medicine, Up until 1912 this department required only three years’ work to complete the course But 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 De- partment of Agriculture, the board of trustees deemed it wise to establish a four-year course in veterinary medicine, commencing with the 1912-13 ses- sion, And this year ' s senior class is its first four-year product. The re- sult will only be seen after these men have shown their ability and dexterity by an extra year ' s work. This University set a precedent by being the first in the United States to adopt a four-year course, and others have followed, since they deemed it the proper thing to do. At first it looked as though the four- year course would be very detrimental to the matriculation in this department, as other colleges, especially private colleges in this country, objected to rais- ing their courses to four years. But if has proved the contrary; the number of matriculants has increased considerably even under the four-year regime. The opportunities for clinic and collateral training in veterinary medi- cine in this department are unexcelled, having Fort Meyer, Bethesda and Belts- ville Experiment Stations and the various government farms at their disposal, as well as the various libraries and government departments, all of which help to train our men in a thorough and decisive way The faculty of twenty-two members, together with three well-equipped hospitals, insure a thorough training in both laboratory and clinical work. The graduates of the College of Veterinary Medicine are eligible to mem- bership in the American Veterinary Medical Association, They are also eligi- ble to service in the United States Department of Agriculture and the United States Army after passing the required examinations. These few facts merely serve to indicate that the Veterinary Department is fully cognizant of the wide field of usefulness to which its graduates may be called, and the increasing responsibilities which must be borne by them in the scientific realm which they are to enter. 172 • G.

We were all downhearted and nearly heartbroken from the first time we imbibed in histology and a few other subjects equally as baffling. But we were a faithful nine who stuck the first year’s work out The following year we added a member, the third year two other members, and then began sailing on in our sea of toil and worry together to form the first four-year class in the United States. (So we claim the championship for four-year men this year) Who disputes it? We have a very cosmopolitan talented crowd. Nearly every individual has some branch at which he is particularly adapted, especially on the enter- tainment end of a good time. But then we also have two Doctors of Phi- losophy, if you will notice. Grubb was made president, and he is the “watchful waiting " kind. He is so quiet he hates to get the boys together for a meeting, fearing their noise may arouse the latent knowledge which they (are supposed to) have, and they would all finish with honors which might not look well. “Yes, he ' s conserva- tive ' and Lynn, he always feels hurt if he can ' t play leading role in a surgery quiz Our trip to the various stock farms, abattoirs, dairies, Fort Meyer and elsewhere have always been a source of great delectation, and, moreover a decided benefit, especially to the boys who thought “steers " were a separate and distinct breed of horses. We have sought the key to familiarizing ourselves with the best way to get along and get the most out of our college career, and we found it in “Har- mony ’ Our relations with the professors have been ones of many pleasures, along with many a stormy session And we are egotistical enough to believe our stock stands high with most of them. We had our troubles in the Fresh- man year; then got through to our Sophomore year, which brought physiology (and many a smile), along with many an hour of study. And physiology was not the only subject which made us stay up late enough to miss breakfast. The class has worked hard as a whole, and a few of its members have worked under big difficulties, but it is our most sincere wish that each and every one shall reap his just harvest for his bard and conscientious work and power to stay. It is to be hoped this class will make history for the school, and if their plans go through, there will be no doubt of it Here ' s to the Class of T6, and long may her men continue to do good work. 174 G. W. 0. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G W. U. WILLIAM NATHAN BERG, Ph, D New York Sigma Xi Joined us in our Sophomore year. We know little of his past history except that he got his Ph. D. degree at Columbia. He has great ideas of " Frenzied Finance,” j, e. making false teeth for horses and automatic hobbles. Also very adept at finding exostoses on equine patients. Has written some very interesting and instruc- tive bulletins which are extensively published. We predict he will be heard from later.

What have we not under- gone since that memorable evening of the 29th day of September. 1913. when Doctor Buckingham, with cajoling words, welcomed us as members of his fam- ily, pointed out the glorious future before us, and lured us on into the struggle. The end of the first year found our ranks broken — we were badly bent to say the least! Only four of the original twelve had survived the terrors of chemistry, histology, anatomy, materia medica — ah those subjects that make the life of a poor Freshman one continual nightmare. The next fall two husky recruits joined our ranks from other schools and we buckled dowm to wrnrk with renewed vigor. That second year was really an irridescent dream of opalescent hue, as compared with the multitudinous strenuosities of our Freshman year, yet even here we encountered obstacles. Physiology had us “buffaloed ' and one of our number stumbled and almost fell amidst the labyrinthine mazes encompassing the floor of the fourth ven- tricle. And so our third year finds us. We are over the divide, but far from over our troubles. Our thoughts take a sombre hue as we think of all that is yet to come, but “ad astra per aspera” is our motto, so just wait another year and look out for the day when the class of 1917 blossoms forth upon the unsuspecting veterinary " world. 178 Junior Veterinary Class VETERINARY SOPHOMORES The Class of 1918 began its career twenty-five strong. Our versatility was put to a test during the first year. We turned with apparent ease from the Twelve Phyla, the recapitulation of Phylogeny by Ontogeny and the pur- suit of the lacertilia of the deserts of North Carolina to the Compound Raceme as exemplified by Smiladna Racemosa. No hesitation was shown in prescrib- ing Magnesium Sulphate and Sodium Sulphate by the drachm and Atropine and Eserine by the ounce. That cut on page 75 was microscopically exam- ined, and it was generally agreed that Mr. Sisson was perfectly right; after which we verified his statements about muscles, from the levator labii su pe- riods proprius to the insertion of the perforans of the pelvic limb. We con- vinced ourselves that yellow elastic connective tissue fibers do branch, anasto- mose and curl at the ends; we looped the Loop of Henle, and covered a good deal of the Area Pellucida, We marvelled at the wonderful Table of Mende- leefT, and digested the Laws of BertholteL Each subject developed its own star; Johnson shone in Chemistry ; Carl in Zoology, and Lanahan and his Crew in Anatomy Oyster kept everybody awake The end of the Freshman year found sixteen of the original twenty-five more or less battered and tattered, but still in the ring. When work began the second year fourteen started with It Woodson and Rowan did not return, and Lanahan ' s Crew was disbanded Horseshoe- ing and Dentistry replaced Zoology; Pharmacy replaced Botany, and Physi- ology replaced Histology Feeds. Breeds and Milk also came in for their share of our attention. In February it was our misfortune to lose Carl, our lizard expert, and it is doubtful if a satisfactory substitute can be developed. Two new stars now shine. Anatomy being an open book to Hines, and Breeds appealing particularly to Seymour, who is an authority on the ' " Dual Purpose Type. " As the year draws to a close we are learning several definitions and three different classifications of the carbohydrates, and hope that by springing Dr, E s on Dr. E. Dr. H ' s on Dr H. and Dr. Gs on Dr. G. everybody will be happy None can tell what history may record about us for the next two years, or how many will be with us but our determination to hang on varies in- versely as our numerical strength. ikii Sophomore Veterinary Class -fr- -- f— f -- - j -fr— ft-, i m L r w — r -- r - -4 ,4„ ft__ft -J t— 1| ■ r-rtir in Tr — -- §■ ■♦■« ■ »■ ■ ■ G.

This year our freshman class has honored George Washington Univer- sity with the largest class in the history of the Veterinary College, the in- crease being second to but one other branch of the University, the number of students enrolled being 30. Barometrically speaking, our enthusiasm ranges anywhere from 1 to 70 — for Chemistry, Zoology and Botany do not permit of much enthusiasm — especially Chemistry, Professor Monroe sees to that ! The grind of college life is now on in earnest, and exams are coming thick and fast, until, to us at least, it seems that life is just one exam after another. Fearful affairs, too, some of them, — causing us to approach the dreaded day with fear and trembling, praying to God, but prepared for the worst. However, examinations have not absorbed all of our time. Several members of our class were, for a while, seriously thinking of joining the col- lege militia, but were finally dissuaded by some of the more peaceful ones who considered them malicious enough as they were. But speaking of pre- paredness reminds me of our one athletic aspiration of the year,— an aspira- tion that unfortunately was destined to be washed in the seas of despair and dashed on the rocks of destruction like a lamb being led to slaughter ! But alas! twas ever thus. It was on the first day of November that we re- ceived from the United States College of Veterinary Medicine a very inso- lent challenge to a game of football which was, so the challenge read, to take place on Thanksgiving Day, We, of course, valiant warriors that we are, replied immediately and with such enthusiasm that it seemed to have utterly disheartened them, for they sent back word that ' ‘Mercy, no! they were too proud to fight, and, besides, they were not prepared, and many of them did not favor such violent sport! 11 G. W, U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. 11. However, we were more fortunate in the matter of our semi-annual class banquet, which was held during the month of January at the Capital Park Hotel. Practically the entire class was present, and festivities only concluded at a very, very late hour. Speeches were indulged in with more or less success, while songs were lustily sung by the class en masse, to Mr. Romberger’s inspiring piano accompaniment. And now for those who have mastered the difficulties that have filled our path Some fought, and wavered and fell; others have hung on and on, refusing to be conquered by mere books or instructors, until now our battered 26 can at last be safely said to be well on the road to success.

PSI OMEGA The Psi Omega Dental Fraternity was first organized at the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1892, and since its beginning has had as its chief aim the elevation of the profession and the encouragement of scientific research along the lines of dentistry. Since the organization nearly thirty chapters have been established in various dental colleges throughout the United States, and the alumni chapters number about twenty-six. Beta Gamma Chapter of George Washington was founded in February, 1903, by Ors, C, L. Constantini, E. R Hagan, E E, Belford and A. B.

Conn., and was incorporated in 1903, as a National Medical and Pharmaceuti- cal organization. Since the date of founding the fraternity has grown, until today it has fifty-three active collegiate chapters, this number being greater than that enjoyed by any other professional fraternity now in existence. The local chapter, Beta-Lambda, was installed on December 20, 1913, by the Delta Chapter of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. The Chapter has fifteen active members, representing all classes in the Medical School. Flower: Red Carnation, Colors : Scarlet and Gray. Publication: " The Mask.” 1916 FRANK T. CHAMBERLIN. C.

True, it was found necessary to study closely the mechanics of manipulating a hot doggie and a nnig of cider with a compound motion over a small interval of time, but this was merely incident to learning something interesting and instructive about our chosen profession. The usual interest and enthusiasm was evidenced at the election of offi- cers, the above slate being chosen. At our opening meeting Dr. Hodgkins, who is as much an integral part of our Society as the name itself, gave us one of his characteristic talks concerning the value of a broad understanding of men as a vital factor in engineering work. Special appeals were sent to each freshman engineering student, asking his support for the Society, and the response speaks well for that class, over fifty men being present at the meeting. We deeply appreciate the courtesy of those fraternities who have extended us the use of their houses. The first week in December we visited the Bureau of Standards, and, considering the inclement weather, had a good representation. The supper, as usiial, was excellent. In addition to many other interesting scientific fea- tures, the paper-making and rubber manufacturing machines were operated for us. with a thoroughness of explanation that left a deep impression of their processes with us. As soon after the mid-years as possible, considering the mental anguish of some of our members, we met and thoroughly enjoyed a splendid lecture by Prof, Dougherty on " The History of Engineering. " He showed us that, after all. the fellow who had the contract to build the Pyramids had a real job on his hands. . • . . f ■ ■ (. ft ' . ,, ,. -4 ,-• , ,» t- , 249 G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G, W. U. When you speak of this Society you at the same time think of the ban- quet. because at this function there is as much good- fellowship and good speaking, not to mention good menu, as at any similar gathering in University life. This year was no exception. All of the points were strictly observed; our guests being President Stockton t Dean Hodgkins, Dean Munroe and Major Otwell, United States Corps of Engineers, We were fortunate in securing a member of the service to speak to us at a time when preparedness was an issue of paramount importance. Those who heard him will never for- get his Spanish proverb. We shall make several trips to various manufacturing concerns and power plants this spring; that to Maryland Steel Company with Dr. Munroe being our final objective. Then we will break up with a last “blow-out” dur- ing commencement week, which, in the vernacular of the county engineer (?), is a “humdinger 1 And a word of confident hope; yes, even a prophecy. If every member of this Society will always keep clearly before him the high ambition of our organization, taking out with him a spirit of friendliness and co-operation among his fellows, he will be doing himself and his Society a lasting service; and The Engineering Society will continue to increase as a vital factor in George Washington life.

Since the organization of the Chemical Society, in 1909 f it has grown in membership and activity, until now it is one of the leading organizations of the school. The meetings held during the past year have had two objects in view; first, the primary object for the existance of the Society, the propagation of the knowledge of chemistry, and, second, the bringing of the members of the various classes in chemistry into closer relationship. In order to accomplish this aim the social feature has been emphasized without, however, neglect to the numerous lectures and trips of inspection. The year’s activities started in October with a talk of unusual interest and meaning, on recent explosions in this country, by Dr, Munroe. Two events of importance marked the month of November, A lecture on “The Bacteriology of the Soil 1 by Mr, Leonard, and a trip of inspection of the prohibitionists to Christian Heurich’s Brewery, Glass, sulphuric acid and maple sugar were separately discussed by Messrs, Cathcart, Brattain and Snyder, respectively, at the December meeting 251 ■ « G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G W, U. At the January meeting the Society was very sorry to receive the resigna- tion of Mr. P. J. Donk as President, due to his non-attendance at the Univer- sity this year. A paper was read by Mr. Breneman on “Chemistry of Pho- tography 1 The February trip to the works of the Washington Gas Light Company was attended by a large crowd of students. Mr. Custis read a paper on “Chlor acetic Acid ' and Mr. Reuben Schmidt was elected President at the regular meeting of that month. The banquet held on February 21 at the University Chib was a great suc- cess, thanks to Mr. Fogle. We might enumerate several more pages of activities of this live Society, but our space is limited. So in closing we dedicate this page to our esteemed Professor Charles E. Munroe, and to a professor who has sacrificed much and worked hard in the interest of the Society, Professor Ottis Dow Swett, Group of Members at a Chemical Society Meeting The Chemical Society G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G, W. I THE RIDING CLUB About October 22 there was started the movement to organize a riding club to join the Washington Group of back-to-the-saddle enthusiasts by Mr, Carl M, J, Von Zielinski, an alumnus of this University and a graduate reputable military school of this country, who gave those G. W U, students who desired it his expert advice in the art of riding without financial com- pensation. The matchless scenery T good roads and numerous bridle paths about Washington offered unusual inducements to those persons interested in this kind of sport. It is not the intention of the Club to make it an exclusive affair for the wealthy, but to point out the many advantages horse-back riding has to offer and to have a Club composed of congenial, democratic group to take trips into the neighboring country as often as possible. The first trip was taken about October 23, through the country of Old Dominion; the party being led by Mr Von Zielinski, The second trip was taken the following Sunday through Clarendon and Fort Myer returning to Washington by way of the Highway Bridge, On the Sunday, November 7, the Club divided into two parties and made a tour of Rock Creek Park. The Wednesday preceding this Sunday a party of night riders was organized and a ride through Virginia was taken. Thanksgiving morning the back-to-the- s addle devotees engineered a paper chase in which 30 men and women hunters participated, among whom were a number of our students. Misses Theodosia Walter and her friend were the first to arrive at the death of the " fox.” Following shortly upon the heels of this spirited chase, the group received word from the Hearst-Selig motion picture company to stage one for their weekly This event was staged in Rock Creek Park near Pierce ' s Mill with a full attendance of the members from this College and the Washington Club, After a few more shorter trips Mr. Von Zielinski was ordered from Wash- ington by executive officials, he being in the consular service, and Mr, Charles Kothe voluntarily took charge of the Club so as to keep up the good work which was temporarily severed by the departure of Mr. Von Zielinski, The Architectural Club 3 H Harrjs Officers 1915-16 RICHARD WASHINGTON CRATON . . .President BEVERLEY HUMPHREYS HARRIS Vice-President ARTHUR HERBERT GODDARD Secretary ARTHUR PRICE STARR . Treasurer The Architectural Club of George Washington University was formed among the students of architecture during the college year of 1912-T3, and has a present membership of thirty-two, and holds meetings monthly. The purposes of forming this club were to promote closer companionship among its members, and to aid each other in their college work. The Architectural Club has not only carried out these purposes for its individual welfare, but has also extended into other branches for the promotion of the University, as can be seen in the annua! publications of the Cherry Tree As in former issues, this edition of the Cherry Tree is illustrated by the members of the Architectural Club, namely: Benson, Carpenter, Daidy, Edwards, Farmham, Freemire, Glasebrook, Harris, Gffutt and Starr. The work of these ten artists consists of fifty illustrations, fifteen of which are the full-page draw- ings of Cherry Tree (frontispiece) — Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Architect ture, Teachers’ College, Law, Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Veterinary, Nurses ' School, Fraternities, Sonorities, Organizations, Athletics, and thirty- five small headings of Engineering Classes, Architectural Classes, Law Classes, Medical Classes, Dental Classes, Pharmaceutical Classes, Veterinary Classes, Pre-Medical Class, Glee Club, Architectural Club, Engineering Society, Chem- ical Society, Pyramid Honor Society, Sphinx Honor Society, Debate, Rifle Team and Coast Artillery Company, The Pyramid Honor Society THE PYRAMID HONOR SOCIETY (Founded December 6th, 1909) PRESIDENT, Shirley Penrose Jones, Law School.

Its member- ship is limited to seven, proportioned among the three upper classes. Only such women students as have had a high scholastic record and have partici- pated actively in college affairs are elected to membership.

STITT Since its organization in the fall of 1914 by David Davis and Maurice Herzmark, the Orchestra has been a decided success. The first public appearance was in the nature of a Concert held for the benefit of the suffering Belgians. Music was furnished both for entertain- ment and for dancing at the " Mixers 51 held by the W. U, C. The Ochestra scored a great success in its rendition of music for the School Play, " Sweet Lavender. " This, the second season of its existence has been even more successful than the first, music having been furnished for the class " Mixers, " and for the Dramatic Association Plays. Sections of the Ochestra have also furnished music for many of the fraternity dances and other socials. With the advent of football into the Athletics, the time is looked forward to when the Ochestra may be extended into a Band to render music at the big games The roster of the Orchestra follows : DAVID DAVIS, Cornel J.

WATZMAN, Violin WILLIAM HYMAN, Trombone 261 THE INTERFRATERNITY ASSOCIATION Nineteen hundred and sixteen finds the I liter fraternity Association firmly and permanently established in the University, This, its sixth year, has been a most successful one, and has given opportunity for the Association to carry further into effect its purpose, as incorporated in its constitution, namely. ' To bring the fraternities of the University closer together, and to promote student activities. ,f The Association is composed of thirteen dele- gates, one from each of the fraternities represented in George Washington, Monthly meetings are held at the various fraternity houses, enabling the men to get closer together, and thereby promoting harmony among the chap- ters. The power of the Association is limited by its constitution, It cannot regulate ♦ ' Rushing 1 and must submit all of its decisions to the various chap- ters to be acted upon. It is encouraging to note that the chapters and the Association have always worked in perfect unison. The faculty has also come to recognize the Inter fraternity Association as the real representative of or- ganized fraternalism within the University, The social life of the Association, with its annual smoker and promenade, affords the Greek letter men great opportunity to display their Lord Fauntle- roy manners and encourages good fellowship. Athletics have been the foremost question this year, and the Association has played a big part in reviving the sports. The Interfraternity relay race and bowling leagues have done wonders towards furthering athletics of the University, Also the baseball league and the tennis tournament, formed last year, have created great enthusiasm.

W. tl ATHLETICS Despite the lack of competitive success in athletics, this year has been a most important one. It has been a year of constant progress, which has finally culminated in re-establishing football here. Basketball, track and football have been put on the soundest basis they have ever been, the students have shown more active support, and have manifested a greater degree of college spirit than heretofore, and the adoption of the student tax insures the financial success In short, the athletic rejuvenation of George Washington is practi- cally complete, and from this time on the Buff and Blue will be seen assum- ing its rightful place in the realm of intercollegiate sport. The fight for the resumption of football has been an arduous and, at times P a seemingly hopeless one, but by persistent and unselfish effort on the part of the faithful few success has finally been attained. The importance of this achievement cannot be underrated, for, in the minds of all far-sighted people, it will unquestionably be of the utmost benefit to the University. Not only will it make George Washington better known and appreciated; not only will it bring more students and add to the University’s prestige; not only will it make many friends and supporters in the outside world, but. more important than all, it will arouse the true college spirit among the students in a way that nothing else could possibly do, and so endear them to their Alma Mater that, as alumni, they will still adhere to the Buff and Blue, and actively support and assist it when they go out into the world of business. Plans have already been partially completed for the football team next fall. From five to seven games will be played, and even though the majority of them may result in defeats, the foundations will have been laid for future championships, Gallaudet, Gettysburg, Delaware College, Johns Hopkins, M, A. C. and Randolph-Macon are our most likely opponents in the early sea- son games, while Catholic University and Georgetown will be our opponents in the two closing games. No manager has as yet been selected, but Prof, McNemar, to whom most of the credit for the resumption of football must go, has taken active charge of the matter, and there is, therefore, no doubt but what all necessary arrangements will be made, and that next fall we will have the great pleasure of once more supporting a representative on the gridiron. BASKET BALL LEO C. TERRY, Manager. HARRY ALMON, Captain. When the first call was issued for candidates for the team about twenty men responded to the call. For two weeks this squad held forth at the Epiph- any gym, and then the twelve best men were selected and taken to the Y, M. C, A, gym, where arrangements had been made for practice, as well as for the playing of our games. Headed by Captain Almon. and Groesbeck and Shaver, of last year’s varsity, the squad began to work in earnest. But, handicapped by the impossibility of securing an experienced coach, as well as by the fact G. W, U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U, that practices could be held for only an hour twice a week the fellows were almost wholly unsuccessful in developing team work. This was the condition of the team when they journeyed to Annapolis on December 22 to play the fast Navy team. As was to be expected, they were beaten. 45 to 11 In the next game against Gallaudet, at the Y. M. C A., we won by the close score of 18 to 17. Next we journeyed out to the Hilltop, where our old rivals beat us 27 to 23. Then came the disastrous Southern trip, where four games were lost, Virginia took our measure, 51 to 24; Wash- ington and Lee. by 37 to 20 in a game featured by poor refereeing; V. JVL I by 42 to 13, and Randolph-Macon by 38 to 19, Only in the Virginia game, how- ever, did we have our regular lineup. Alrnon had to return immediately after this game ; Mathews after the W. and L. game, and both Shaver and Groesbeck after the V. M, L game. This left Getchell as the only regular in the lineup against Randolph-Macon. There is consequently a good excuse for the losses of these games, and the team then became pretty badly demoralized, and the losing streak accordingly continued, Catholic University beating us 29 to 11 at the Arcade, and Georgetown by 29 to 19 at the Y. M. C. A. But in the meantime George Colliflower had been secured to coach the team, and gradually he succeeded in developing more team work. Before much could be accomplished, however, Gallaudet defeated us at Kendall Green 50 to 24, The next week, however, Temple University, who the day before had met Gallaudet and defeated them 50 to 46, came to the Y. M. C. A. and we defeated them 24 to 20, Then on February 12 Catholic University was met at the " Y, " and despite the fact that we played winning ball throughout, the incompetency of the officials allowed them to beat us by 23 to 19. Vir- ginia was next entertained at the home court, and in a hotly contested game beat us by the close score of 26 to 20, Again, with a weakened team, a short trip was taken, on which Washing- ton College defeated us 28 to 12, and Delaware, At the time of going to press three games still remain to be played — Tem- ple at Philadelphia, Bucknell at Lewisburgh, and Washington College at home. On the improved showing of the team these three games should result in victories. Competitively, the season has been a disastrous one. But when it is con- sidered that all the strongest teams of this section have been played, and that for the larger part of the season we could not secure the services of an exper- ienced coach, there is no reason to feel disspirited. All kinds of hard luck have been encountered, but despite all this, the prospects for the future were never so bright as now. Shaver is the only regular who will be lost by gradua- tion, and with Colliflower in charge from the beginning of the season, and with all the splendid material he will have to work with, there is no doubt but what he will be able to turn out a very strong team next year, " Shorty " Alrnon, captain and forward, again leads the team in scoring, despite the fact that he was late in hitting his stride. Being compelled to work into the " wee sma’ " hours night after night, it was naturally impossible for him to do justice to himself. He has made a good captain, however, and has been of great value to the team. Mathews, called " Matty " by his team mates, runs Alrnon a close second in points scored, being only about three points behind his captain. He has been of inestimable value to the team, and his earnest work has been an in- spiration to the other members of the team. His ability may be judged from 266 1 tu t G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G, W. U. the fact that il Pop n Lanigan of Virginia, terms him one of the best pivot men he has seen in college basketball, Homer Shaver ranks next in the number of points scored, which is saying a great deal for a guard. In several games he has been compelled to shift to a forward position, and in the V, M. L game he held down center. Aggres- sive, full of pep, and a close guarder, he has been of the utmost assistance to the team, Groesbeck is unquestionably one of the best guards in the South. He has no peer in his ability to break up dribbles, and, in fact, almost any other sort of play, " Groesy 11 is one of the most consistent and dependable players on the team, and is the most likely selection for next years captaincy, Getchell has proven his value to the team by his consistent work, and but for the fact that he severely sprained his ankle in the opening game, his record would, no doubt, be much better. " Getcti " is an earnest and spirited player, and brings just the necessary amount of added weight up forward to make him a good running mate for Almon, Powers, who joined the team at the beginning of the second semester, was not long in proving his ability, and in the games he has played he has shown himself to be a most consistent forward. He is the best shot from the foul line of anyone on the team, and he is almost as accurate in caging them from the court. Wilson, though a substitute, has played in nearly every game, and has proven himself a most aggressive and earnest player. With more experience he will make a good man to fill Shaver ' s place at guard. Eliason, the other substitute guard, has shown welt in the games he has played, and gives promise of developing into a very capable guard, ' Wax” is fast, a good passer, and, incidentally, a pretty accurate shot, Allen, substitute forward, is one of the fastest men on the squad, and he can pick passes out of the air with unerring consistency. Blondy” is always full of pep, and always works hard for the welfare of the team, Ritzhaupt is another capable substitute forward, and plays a hard, earnest game. With more experience ‘‘Ritz " will make an enviable reputation, Elleson. substitute center, can out jump any man on the team, and he never knows when he is tired, if, in fact, he ever does get tired. He plays the same steady game at the end as at the beginning, Leonard, another candidate for forward, shows marked ability, and though he has had but little opportunity this year to demonstrate his worth to the team, he is bound to be heard from next year, George Colliflower has done wonders with the team since he took active charge. Had he coached us from the beginning, an entirely different story could, no doubt, be told. He knows the game thoroughly; he has had wide experience as player, coach and referee, and with him in charge of the squad next year George Washington will have the best team in its history. As to the manager his record must stand on its merit. Mistakes have been made in performing the multitudinous duties of the position, but never wilfully. Had it not been for the many misfortunes that have befallen the team far greater success would have been achieved. But despite the loss of the larger part of the games, the season has been successful, in that it has brought out greater support on the part of the students, and has laid the foun- dations for a strong team next year. 268 G, W, U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W, U, TRACK Owing to the loss of all the members of last year ' s relay team, which won the two-mile S, A. L A. A, championship, but little has been accomplished competitively. But the twelve men who are out are all youngsters, and give promise of developing into capable runners. Being their first experience, not a great deal could be expected of them this year. In the Georgetown meet Catholic University defeated us pretty badly t but as two of our best men were laid up, this was only to be expected. In our own meet a short-distance team from M, A. C, will be run t and better things are expected. All the squad, composed of Semmes, pole vaulter, and Harsch, Prettyman, Johnson, James, Scott, Vanderbrock, Carmody, Schladt, Shinnick, Alexander and Wingate, runners, will be entered, Semmes can be depended on as a point getter, and some of the others are sure to come through with points. The most important event will be the track meet on March 4, At the time of going to press the arrangements have been practically completed, and the meet promises to be one of the best ever held here. Three hundred ath- letes, representing nearly fifty different universities, schools and athletic clubs, are entered. Included in this number are the best athletes of the South Atlan- tic section, as well as the crack team from Lehigh, The meet will be in charge of the most experienced and competent officials, and with Prof. McNemar’s customary efficient management, it is safe to assert that the meet will be a most successful one. The features will be a one-mile relay between Lehigh and M. A, C,, a two- mile relay between Virginia and V, P, I,, a one-mile relay between Johns Hop- kins and Georgetown, and a relay between another M. A. C. team and our own team, composed of Harsch, Scott, James, Vanderbrock and Alexander. To Prof, McNemar and a small group of ever-faithful students must go the credit for the success of the meet. Unless some unforseen misfortune occurs, the meet will be a financial success, as well as one of the best competed ones that has been held in years. 269 G. W. U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G.

The first meeting of the academic year 1915-16 was held Novem- ber 13, 1915, The constitution as first adopted was amended in some particu- lars, and the following officers were elected for the year 1915-16: Leo Terry, Business Manager; Thomas W, Rhoads, Secretary; John L. Mitchell, Treas- urer; William Tonne, Librarian; Professor Otis D, Swett, Director. The first public perform ance, which was given in Assembly Hall February 25th, 1916, was a great success. Now that the Glee Club has been formally organized, it bids fair to be- come one of the foremost of the University ' s social activities. As in athletics, whatever success the Glee Club may hope to achieve will depend upon the sacrifices the members are willing to make, for many of them earn their own livelihood. No doubt in future years many a smile will be forthcoming on the remembrance of our midnight rehearsals. This brief sketch would be incomplete without an acknowledgement of the splendid and whole-hearted services rendered the Glee Club by its Fac- ulty Director, Professor Otis D, Swett. Whatever may have been accom- plished thus far is due to his enthusiasm, his perseverance and his unabound- ing patience. The membership includes the following students : J. E. Arbeely, William Boyle, R. J, Beck, C. Dunagan, H, Enlows, William Gilligan, W. A, J, Gersdorff, B. Hamilton, C, R. King, Karl B. Lutz, J, E, Lar- son, John L, Mitchell, J. E. Maryman, A. A.

LG THE DRAMATIC SOCIETY The first meeting of the Dramatic Association was held Wednesday even- ing, November 8. Each person interested endeavored to produce his dramatic ability in a three minute recitation or performance. Dean Wilbur. Professor McNemar and Mr. Wheeler judged the performers. The officers of the Dramatic Society are: Franklin Myers, president Miss Mabel Blanchard, vice-president; Miss Lenore Kolar, secretary, and George Nordlinger, treasurer. Those who were given try-outs and admitted to the Society are the follow- ing : Misses Blanchard, Ryan, Davis, E. Davis, Vaux, Newcombe. Geschicter, Kolar, Wingate, Seibold, Dixon, Bose, Hitchcock, Heron, and Abbott. Messrs, Rhoade, Myers, Gluck, Wingate, Staler, Tashof, Lightfoot, and Nordlinger, On December 17th the first of a series of Dramatic Sketches was staged. This was to test the skill of the members of the Society. Three delightful sketches were selected for presentation, and about 30 people were in the casts. The plays and the casts were : A scene from " Les Miserables, " with Mr. Gluck as Jean Valjean, Mr. Lightfoot as The Bishop, Miss Geschicter as his sister. Miss Dixon as Marie, and Mr. Tashof as Captain of Gendarmes. “Doctor Cure-All, " with Mr. Nordlinger as the Doctor, and Misses D Davis, E. Davis, Vaux. Walter, Seibold. Kolar, Newcombe, Abbott, and Mr Wingate as his patients, " Ze Modern English, " with Mr. Myers, as Ralph Random ; Miss Wingate as his mother; Miss Ryan as Marie; Miss Blanchard as Effie Random, and Mr, Burton as Tom Fenwick. The second series of “Dramatic Sketches " was given before an audience which completely filled the Immaculate Conception Auditorium. The comedies were very creditably presented and were received with great apreciation. The first sketch on the program was 11 A Question of Sex. " by the well- known Arnold Bennett, a refined comedy of classic type. The cast included Mr, Gluck, as “George Gower; " Miss Edna Dixon, as “May Forest " (his married sister); Miss Frances Geschicter, as " Helen Stanton; 1 and Mr, B. Lightfoot, as “Francis Gower, 11 The second sketch of the evening was “Prexy ' s Proxy, 11 a rollicking college comedy, dealing with the pranks and troubles of two college students, which kept the audience in a gale of laughter. The two college students were well presented by Messrs. Detlow Martin and George Nordlinger. Misses Lenore Kolar and Dorothy Davis received great applause for their work in the parts of " Bessie Miller, " a fair freshman, and “Jane, " Prexy’s daughter respective- ly. The part of Prexy, the president of the college, was portrayed with great talent by Lawrence Burton, Unusual praise is due Miss Inez Ryan for her charcterization of the spinister, “Rachel Kargill. " The third sketch was the street scene from Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice. " Miss Wingate ' s “Launcelot Gohbs " was portrayed with exceptional talent, and Miss Blanchard ' s interpretation of Old Gobbo was perfect. Miss Ryan, as Bassanio, completed the cast. ,« , t,.a « • „ ■ t- -t " l“ ■■ 27 5 " • ' a .a « i n »i i ■ a n -•—•“ ■ i » t ' lumm . ■ ■ ■ ■■» » - ■ ■ .+ « ♦ ' - G, W- U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G, W.

Its membership is composed of the members of the Faculty and the Alumni of the Veterinary College of George Washington University as honorary members, and the students as active members. The aim of the Association is to assist its student members in preparing for the broader sphere of life they are about to enter as professional men, and to enable them to intelligently discuss the questions and problems encoun- tered in the various branches of veterinary medicine. In order to accom- plish its objects, papers pertaining to some phase of the profession are read at each meeting, either by students, honorary members or by some reputable speaker, after which a free discussion follows. In this way much benefit is derived, and many interesting scientific points are brought out in debate. These meetings, held monthly, provide a neutral ground where all class distinctions are set aside, where Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors mingle and enjoy equal rights. Here many pleasant and lasting friendships have sprung up among members of the different classes, thus helping, more than any other one thing, perhaps, to promote a common interest in regard for the welfare of the department. Each year a banquet is held, at which invited guests help to enliven the occasion with informal speeches, and contribute much to an enjoyable occa- sion. Keeping pace with trie steady growth of the Veterinary Department, our Association is increasing in membership, power and usefulness, and is now a strong college organization. As in the past, so in the future will it stand for advancement in all things worth while, and will be a strong bond uniting its members in a common interest for the welfare of the University. 277 ■ The Association of Class Presidents G, W.

GILLIAM (Junior Dental) Vice-President GEORGE A, DEGENHARDT (Senior Engineering) Secretary WATSON DAVIS (Sophomore Engineering). Treasurer The Association of Class Presidents was organized in 1904 as a high tribu- nal to consider all matters relative to the student body of the University. It is composed of the presidents of every class of the University. Through the non-attendance of many of the members it has been at times difficult to accomplish very much. Nevertheless, a great deal of progress has been made in various directions. Early in the year the matter of the adoption of a standard senior class pin for the use of ail classes of the University was brought up, and after con- siderable discussion a pin was adopted and the approval of the faculty secured. The Association was also able to extend a great deal of assistance toward the revival of football, as well as toward the support of athletics in general. It has also been active in other matters of concern to the student body, and at present has on foot a movement to revive the 11 Senior Prom.” There are great possibilities for good to the University and student body- at-large in the Association. It is generally to be regretted, therefore, that so many of the members have shown a great lack of interest, and have retarded the progress of the Association through their non-attendance. However, the officers and the faithful few have continued their efforts, and it is owing to them that the Association has accomplished what it has. There is great hope of a bright future for the Association, especially as the revival of football will necessitate the establishment of a student athletic committee. The Association, representing as it does every class and depart- ment of the University t would be the most logical body to perform these duties. It is only necessary that the members of the Association take just a little added interest to make the Association one of the most important student bodies in the University. ■ 279 The Rifle Team G. W, U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. V . THE RIFLE CLUB The George Washington University Rifle Club is a student organization which is interested in, and promotes interest in military rifle shooting. The Club is affiliated with the National Rifle Association, the promoter of the Intercollegiate Outdoor Shoot. The winning of this match is the goal and ambition of the Club. A team of six is chosen from the members of the Rifle Club each year to represent the University in this match. All members have equal opportunity to win a place on the team : those who do the best shooting in practice are chosen as members of the team. The prize for this match is a trophy to be held for one year, and medals to the members of the winning team. The college winning it the greatest number of times in sixteen years retains the trophy permanently. The performances of teams representing George Washington University in this match in past years have been very creditable. In ten matches that have been shot in competition with a dozen or more teams from the large uni- versities and colleges George Washington has won three. The team of last year was a cosmopolitan one (within the University), four departments being represented, as follows; Stoddard, Van Moss, Law; Varney. Engineering; Shields, Lockwood, Dental; Crain, Columbia College, The match, as fired in 1915, comprised three stages: Two hundred yards rapid fire, 300 and 500 yards slow fire. Of a possible 300 points, with thirteen teams competing, the standin g of George Washington at the completion of each stage was as follows : First stage, third place, score 282, two points behind the leading team; second stage, third place, score 261, eleven points behind; at the last stage the team dropped to sixth place, with a score of 259. making a total of 802. Owing to a misunderstanding of the rules governing the match, time was called at the last stage before a complete score had been fired, causing a loss of three shots, or a possible firteen points Complete scores of all the teams competing are given in the following table ; Rapid Fire Slow Fire Slow Fire 200 Yds. 300 Yds. 500 Yds.

THE GIRLS 1 BASKETBALL TEAM The girls ' basketball team has had a most successful season so far. It has only two losses against it, and both of these games, which were played on foreign floors, were paid back in full in return games by overwhelming victories. An especially large number of girls came out for the team this year, and the chances are excellent for good inter-class games. At this writing three more “big” games are scheduled, two with Temple University, of Philadelphia, and one with Swarthmore. The team is : — Theodosia Seibold and Emma Reh t forwards; Ella Gardner and Loyzelle Callihan, centers; Charlotte Stimpson and Agnes Carter, guards; Helen Hotch- kiss, Gertrude Fogerty, Gertrude Walter and Elizabeth Davis, substitutes.

W. U. THE COAST ARTILLERY COMPANY In the spring of last year the idea of the formation of a University Mili- tary Company was conceived by General Maxwell V. Z, Woodhulh a member of the Board of Trustees, and a committee of the trustees, with General Wood- hull as chairman, was appointed to supervise the formation of the company. President Stockton gave the idea his strong support, and Mr, William Bruce King was also very active in the matter, and in the absence of General Woodhull from the city, acted as chairman of the committee, A letter to both students and local alumni was mailed early in the sum- mer, and a large number of responses was received. Brigadier General Wil- liam B. Harvey, the commanding general of the District of Columbia Militia, and an alumnus of the University, was consulted, and it was decided to organ- ize a company to be the first of the Coast Artillery Battalion which it was de- sired to add to the guard, A mass-meeting was held on October 8th f which was addressed by Gen- eral Harvey, Mr. King and Major J, C, Castner, U. S. A., the army officer de- tailed as adjutant of the local National Guard, By this time nearly the re- quired number of 68 men had pledged themselves to enlist, and later in the month the actual enlistment was begun. The enlistment was first in charge of a committee of students. It was later under the direction of Mr, W, W, Burns, a graduate of the Law School, who had had experience as a commissioned officer in the Naval Militia, Mr, Burns later took the required examination, and was commissioned captain and given command of the company after it was formally mustered in on December 8, 1915, The company was officially designated First Company, Coast Artillery Corps, National Guard of the District of Columbia, and has been assigned to Battery Humphries, at Fort Washington, Md. This battery is a modern one, consisting of two ten-inch rifles mounted on disappearing carriages, together with the requisite magazines, observing stations and plotting room. Here the company will have its own barracks, which will make possible week-end and holiday trips to the fort. The summer encampment will be held either at that post or at Fort Howard, near Baltimore, it being possible to have actual target practice at the latter place. The company has local quarters at the First Street National Guard Armory, consisting of a general assembly room, locker room, officers ' room, company office and quartermaster ' s storeroom.

THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G W, U. THE MENORAH SOCIETY L. K, ELLENBGGEN President. LEON TASHOF MAX RHOADE. ETHEL WOLF. Vice-President , Secretary Treasurer Within the last several decades the study of Hebraic culture began to be neglected by our universities and colleges. While the language and culture of the Greeks and Romans at no time lost its importance in the currie utae of our higher institutions of learning, our educators became content to allow a mantle of obstruction to fall before the retrospect of the life and prod ul irons of " The People of the Book ’ This indeed was to be deplored. A study of Hebraic civilization and Hebraic wisdom was, and is. as important as a study of these other two classical nations: perhaps even more so when the world is departing from and forgetting the great ethical teachings of the ancient prophets. So far as the universities were concerned, the wisdom of the Talmud that wonder- ful storehouse of Jewish philosophy, was unknown, because it was ignored It was, of course, natural that the ever-increasing number of Jewish students in our universities should first feel the deplorable condition of things; so in 1908, at Harvard University, the first Menorah Society was formed — " for the study and promotion of Jewish culture and ideals, " Its object was not merely to take the place of a classroom course in Hebrew, but rather to include and supplement it. From Harvard went forth the spirit of this first Menorah, and inspired students at other universities to establish new Menorahs, and soon the Intercollegiate Menorah Association was formed, consisting of the societies at the various colleges and universities. Each of these constituent societies are assisted by the Association thru the furnishing of libraries and lecturers, and in countless other ways The work of the Menorah Societies has from year to year increased; study circles and forums have been introduced as collateral groups for special and intensive study of various subjects. Before the societies themselves, people of prominence in Jewish learning and activity lecture on assigned topics. The Hebrew language, Jewish history, the various movements going on in Jewry, the leading questions before the Jewish people today, the Bible, Jewish philos- ophy and literature are taken up systematically. Realizing the wonderful good of the Menorah Societies, university authorities have everywhere given the organizations their unstinted approval and the most sincere encouragement. The movement had its influence upon an earnest and highly interested group of Jewish students here in George Washington, and last semester, on November 26th, the George Washington University Menorah Society was formed, and immediately began active work, Mr, Henry Hurwitz, Chancellor of the Intercollegiate Menorah Association, was brought down from New York, and spoke at a crowded meeting in chapel hail Dean Ruediger wel- comed the society in behalf of the University, Soon afterwards it was elected a constituent society of the Intercollegiate Menorah Association, Thus under very auspicious circumstances the Menorah began its existence at G W, U It has met with the greatest success. It wishes to bring to the attention of the student body these facts: first, that a knowledge of Jewish history ethics and culture is indispensable to every student who aims to be truly edu- cated. Secondly, that the Menorah Society is wide open to every student of the University, no matter what race or creed — it is an absolutely catholic or- ganization. Lastly that in no other university organization can such inter- esting discussions and inspiring lectures be heard The Menorah bids you for the coming term Welcome! 286 Activities in debating circles in George Washington began when the Debating Council, with Prof, E, Otto Schreiber as chairman, started arrang- ing its season schedule about October 8. The other members of the council were Prof. Leslie Cleveland McNemar and Shirley Penrose Jones. Professor Schreiber during his student days was one of the star debaters of the University, editor of The Hatchet, and holder of numerous other honors. In the capacity of chairman, he will also assist in the coaching of intercollegiate teams. As to Professor McNemar, it is not necessary to make much comment. His perseverance and tireless energy have resulted in the accomplishment of many things heretofore thought to be impossibilities in George Washington. Mr. Jones, who received his LLB degree at the last Commencement, and has returned for Master ' s work, distinguished himself as a member of inter- collegiate teams. As student manager, a new position in the Council, it will be his duty to make arrangements for the holding of intercollegiate debates in Washington, and for the reception of visiting teams. He is also president of the Delta Sigma Rho honorary debating fraternity. Mr. Marcus is an ex-president of the Columbian Debating Society and has always taken an active interest in debating. The other member of the Council is Howard Hodgkins, representing the Enosinian Literary Society. Mr. Hodgkins 1 interest in ail that pertains to student activities is well known, December 20, our team met North Carolina and lost a close contest.

Y . 11 ENOSINIAN SOCIETY The Enosinian is a literary and debating society. Its meetings are held once every two weeks. At these meetings a question is debated, a member is called upon to deliver an extemporaneous speech, and contributions to the so- called newspapers, the " Bee " and the " News " are read. The object of the society is to develop fluency and ease in spoken and written discourse. As a society the Enosinian is the oldest in the University, and the only one that has survived the storms of nearly a century. Shortly after the first ses- sion of Columbian College commenced, to be exact, on March 6, 1822. the Enosinian Society came into existence. Until 1829 it thrived, and seems to have been the nucleus of literary activity in the city of Washington : then with the suspension of Columbian College the Enosinians necessarily discontinued their meetings. However when the college was reopened, in 1833, Enosis also revived, and still lives. The career of the Enosinian Society has not been without glory. Among distinguished men who have accepted its honorary membership are : General Lafayette and his son, George Washington Lafayette; Edward Everett, Daniel Webster Robert Y, Hayne J. C, Calhoun, J, Q. Adams, Henry Clay. Washing- ton Irving H, L. Pinckney, Martin VanBuren, William Cullen Bryant and W. W, Corcoran. Of the circumstances attending General Lafayette ' s recogni- tion of the society the Enosinian Catalogue, published in 1859, says: General Lafayette visited Columbian College on the 13th of De- cember, 1824. and having been received by the societies at the foot of College Hill, was escorted to the chapel, where appropriate exercises took place. Shortly afterwards a committee was appointed to wait upon General Lafayette and his son, George Washington Lafayette, and " request that the society may have the pleasure of enrolling their names among its honorary members. " The report of the committee stated that they had waited on General Lafayette, and " that to the request of the committee, desiring in the name of the society the honor of enrolling his name and that of his son as honorary members, he returned answer that they accepted with pleasure the honor conferred upon them and tendered their sincerest thanks — at the same time the warmest wishes for the wel- fare of the Enosinian Society, " In the present day the Enosinian Society is well represented among the faculty of the University by Dean Howard L. Hodgkins of the College of Engi- neering; L. R. Alden, Assistant Professor of History; Ernest O. Schreiber. Assistant Professor of Law, and William C Van Vleck. Secretary of the Law School and Instructor in Law. A tribute to the work of the Enosinian Society is furnished by the fact that as early as 1860 there were 1,800 volumes in its library, and the number eventually grew to 4,000, These have since been placed in the University library. During the last few years, until recently, interest in literary and debating societies seems to have lagged, with the result that th e Enosinians have only been passively active. Since the beginning of the present school year, how- ever, the society has taken on new life, and the enthusiasm which its mem- bers evince promises that it will again become the most active debating and literary organization in the University. Behind it are all the best traditions of the school; before it is the possibility of reclaiming and increasing the honor it has shared in the past. ■ • » I- -ft,, .ft-, B, .« .i ft,. ■ ■+• i • ,» B- ,4 „ +«+ B +B+ B,+B 289 ' +B. 1 ► ■ , , B. it 4 I G.

U COLUMBIAN DEBATING SOCIETY The Columbian Debating Society has now passed through twenty-nine years of eventful achievement, and next year will be able to look back upon three decades of continuous, steadfast progress without the break of a single session to mar the continuity of its splendid record- After searching through many a musty and age-worn volume of University records, it is found that in the fall of 1889 a group of earnest students of the Law School came together and organized themselves into the Columbian Debating Society, making its object the training of its members in the art of forensic address. Among the charter members were Professors Clephane and Earnest, of the Law School, whose successful careers before the bar, together with the notable record of those other signers of its original constitution, attest to the kind of men the Columbian has trained in the “noblest of all the arts,’ The old Columbian voices echo in the halls of many legislatures; their convincing logic is heard before the bars of every state in the Union ; they read from the high throne of judgment thruout the land opinions which call forth the admiration of the greatest disciples of Blaekstone and Justinian. The secret of the Columbian s success is a simple one; it has been forever in earnest. Its members are re- quired to make unceasing effort, to create perfect work, and at all times to give one another the helping hand of encouragement. The present year has seen the Columbian reach the very zenith of its success. There are fifty-five active members on its roster — more than any other literary organization of the University has ever had. The attendance at every meeting is the best witness of the successful methods pursued by the Society, and the intense interest of all its members in everything pertaining to its welfare has been the glory of its constituents and the surprise of those working in other organizations, who, before they visited the Columbian mourned that student activity in the University was dead. In debating pro- cedure this year the Society has made a number of progressive departures, adopting the most approved methods of forensic training. The primary object of the Columbian has not been to contribute good debaters for the intercollegiate teams t although the University teams have, with very few exceptions, been composed of Columbian men. Its primary object has been to produce men who will be able to meet in every way the in- creasing exactitudes of modern public life; who will stand by virtue of their power of expression at the head of their communities ; who, by their clearness of thought and trained diplomacy, will become leaders in their chosen profes- sions. The Columbian ' s forum has at all times been occupied with the most recent and important sociologic, economic and political questions — it has sought to instil into its members love for progressive democracy and a broad- ness of view, so that when they become soldiers in the battle of life they may contribute the finest gifts of American citizenship to our great republic.

Hance, Jr., January 7. 1916, has as its object to boost and advertise all the activities of the University by means of posters and other art works. Before the movement to start this club was launched the sanction of a member of the Faculty Committee on Student Activities was obtained. This move- meat was looked upon by this faculty member, Prof. Leslie Cleveland Me- Nemar, as a At idea. Many advance notices were posted, and some printed in The University Hatchet before the first meeting was called. Before the election of officers over a dozen names to be considered in its organization were received. Nearly every department of the University now has a repre- sentative artist in the Society, To become a member a student has to submit at least three drawings, executed by himself, which shall be brought before the Society in general as- sembly and passed upon.

Alumni Member " The Legal Aid Society of the George Washington University ' was organ- ized in March, 1914, by the co-operative effort of Prof. Everett Fraser, the present Dean of the Law School, and a few alumni and third-year students of the Law School. The objects and purposes for which it was organized are: First, to fur- nish free legal aid to those persons who, by reason of needy circumstances, are unable to procure the services of an attorney, and to prosecute or defend in the courts meritorious cases of such persons; and, second, to offer to the student members of the Society practical advantages and experience in addi- tion to those furnished by their regular law course. The membership of the Society is divided into two classes— active and associate. The active members are selected from the best students of the second and third-year classes, and of the post-graduate classes upon nomina- tions made by the faculty upon a basis of scholarship. The selection of active members from the second-year class is made during the second semester. The associate members are elected from graduates of the Law School engaged in the practice of law in the District of Columbia. They are elected, subject to their acceptance, for a term of one year, for the purpose of conducting the actual trial of cases taken into the courts for adjustment. The office of the Society is in the office of the clerk of the Moot Court in the Law School, The active members in turn assume the duty of being in charge of the office, one member being assigned to duty each evening, except Sundays and holidays. The member in charge of the office receives clients in consultation, and is responsible for the conduct of all cases coming in dur- ing his hours of office. While most of the work is done by the active mem- bers, the affairs of the Society are directed by an executive committee, which is composed of two student members, a faculty member, and an alumnus en- gaged in practice in the District of Columbia. No legal action may be taken without the authority of the executive committee. The work and importance of the Society are slowly increasing. It usually acts in an advisory capacity, though at times it assists in compromise, and takes proper cases into the courts. The limitations in equipment facilities and endowment are very great. In spite of these difficulties, the Society is putting forth its best efforts to serve as a social benefit to the community, and, with added efficiency and more adequate organization, for which it is now striving, it confidently expects maximum success.

EMMA BEH, 17 GERTRUDE FOGERTY, 17 Vice-President , Secretary Treasurer President The Woman ' s University Club has erystalized into a definite body, and has taken on a definite meaning. A few years ago all there was of it was a vague desire to organize all the women students, and to make college life more desir- able, No one in the organization then knew exactly what the scope, purpose and result of it might be, in spite of its written constitution. Its greatest accomplishment, as far as the whole University is concerned, is its instrumentality in bringing together students from all departments of the University, For the first time in history Dental students mixed freely with one from Teachers ' College, while fair Columbian College co-eds held conver- sations indiscriminately with " Medic " or " Engineer. " While the Club holds two receptions a year to all students of the Univer- sity, six " parties " are given for just the girls. Each of the four classes, the officers of the club, and the " prize class " in turn are hostesses at these parties. Some of these co-ed affairs have been rather thrilling, to say the least. But there is more serious work going on at the same time under the aus- pices of the W. U + C. Miss Julia Ruff, chairman of the religious work com- mittee, has had a year of successful Monday chapel services, » r- Then, also, the wild, wandering spirits of the University were bridled, and, to keep them from damaging the school property, were safely guided on long moonlight hikes by Miss Emma Reh, Think back, all of you, and see how much of your good times were due to the W.

U NIEDZIELNY SOCIETY Installed , November 15, 1915. This Society had a spontaneous origin in the “Hatchet” office the first of November, 1915, when a number of “Live-wires” of the University assembled and started a general, good natured “rush” among themselves. As days lingered, the memory of the struggle was continually being recalled to them by scars gotten in what afterward proved to be the initiation of a new Order, which had as its watchword, “whop,” significant of the method of procedure at its first meeting- The first name of the title of this Society was selected arbitrarily from a foreign newspaper. Although at first it had no object, the Society now has as its motto, “Boost all activities of the University and be the first to start the ‘ship’ moving This Order is of an honorary character and to be a member one must be a booster through and through and ready to support the College in all its undertakings.

Later, however, it was seen that a group of live fellows in the laboratory could do a lot of good work for the advance ment of things chemical in the University, The gang is a very strong supporter of the Chemical Society, and in addition to this the members are always ready to help any of the students who seem to be having difficulty with their chemistry.

Take a quart of cranberries, or buy them, as you see fit; put in a bowl, wash with soap (don’t leave the cake in) sprinkle with a little phosphate or a little blue vitriol, cover and place in oven (be sure to light the oven). To make the pie without the berries, simply omit that article in the above recipe. Never throw fly paper away. With a little ingenuity dainty catch-alls may be made from a few sheets of fly paper. The dead flies on it make curious designs which are very effective at a little distance. If the catch-alls are care- fully made they will afford endless amusement for the family in watching friends put their fingers on them to see if they are real. If the windows are open in the summer, fly paper has a way of blowing about the room. This is annoying but can be remedied by sitting on it. To one who cannot afford portiers made of beads and bamboo, which are imported from Japan, a neat substitute may be made by punching holes in empty sardine-boxes and stringing them on stout twine. A number of these strings hung closely together in a doorway will attract attention and help beautify the home. Devilled-ham boxes may be used the same way if one prefers. Perfumes m Cooking. It has been learned that the finest French Chefs use Eau de Cologne in preparing some of their choice perfections. Musk may be used as a sub- stitute if one prefers. Perfumed soaps will give a peculiar flavor to puddings and sauces, and a handful of aromatic caehous dropped into the hash will attract attention. Candy flavored with hair oil may be bought very cheaply, but it is usually preferable to make it at home. House “Beach Parties.” House “beach parties 1 ' are coming much into vogue in the swagger set. They are taking the place of the sheet and pillow-case parties so popular among the elite formerly. Fill a room about a foot deep in sea sand. Throw- on it a number of oyster and clam-shells, crabs, seaweed, old cabbages, carrots, turnips, tomato cans, water-soaked shoes, defunct cats and other sea products. The hostess receives the party in a pretty French bathing costume. The gentle- men should wear bathing suits under their full-dress suits, A concealed shower bath turned on at the right time will add much to the social function To Remove Wet Paint. Rub up against it before it is dry. It also may be removed with the finger or a silk handkerchief. A gallon can of liquid paint dropped from almost any height will make a unique spatter work on a silk bodice. Much of the cold cream sold in the drug stores is carelessly made and not always the best materials are used. Cold cream may be easily made home by anyone of ordinary ingenuity. To make if put the cream in the refrigerator. »■ •- 303 G. W, U. THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U.

U, THE 1916 CHERRY TREE G. W. U AN ALUMNUS OF THE YEAR 1960, The husband was asleep in the parlor of a little Harlem flat. He made a pretty picture as he lay curled up on the loimge with his silken tresses of the fashionable Titian shade, his dainty spring shirt waist and the chiffon bloomers which reached to his slender ankles. In his small white hands with well kept finger nails, he held an issue of the Hatchet, the 16 page journal of G. W. V .. which he evidently had just been reading. The clock upon the mantel struck six. The sound awakened the young husband. “Good gracious”, he exclaimed, “Six o ' clock and Susan will be home in half an hour, I must not keep her waiting for her dinner. I shall never forget the dreadful language she ad- dressed to me the last time it occurred 1 Springing to his feet he fetched his wife ' s slippers from under the bed and placed them on the radiator to warm. Then he hurried into the kitchen, and busied himself with mashing the potatoes , and pounding the beef-steak to make it tender, and with various other little preparations for the evening meal. At twenty-five minutes past six everything was ready and the pretty house- keeper had five minutes to spare, before his wif e ' s aeroplane was due to alight upon the roof, A sudden thought occurred to him that made him clap his hands and giggle like a school-boy, “I ' ll give her a little surprise,” he said glee- fully- There was no time to be lost. Hastily shutting the kitchen door so that the smell of the cooking would not spoil his little scheme, he scribbled a few hurried words on a sheet of note paper, and laid it on the dining-room table. Then he turned off the electric lights leaving the fiat in total darkness. Scarce- ly had he done so when his keen ears caught the sound of an approaching aeroplane. A low rumble told him that the machine had come to a standstill on the roof overhead, A few moments later, the young business woman trampled from the stairs that led from the roof, tried the door of the fiat and muttered impatiently on finding it locked. An exclamation of astonishment escaped her on finding the place deserted, “Where in the deuce can he be ’ she muttered, “This is the first time I have known this to occur since our marriage. 1 ' Turning on the lights she stalked into the dining room, snatched up the sheet of paper and read the following ; “Farewell forever, I am tired of married life and have gone home to papa.

Brave and womanly as she was, she could scarcely keep back the tears that welled into her eyes. Suddenly someone crept up behind her. Two loving arms embraced her tightly and she felt a man ' s soft cheek upon her own. “You silly old girl” said the husband ' s voice, “It T s all a joke. You didn ' t think I meant it did you? 1 ’ Instead of returning his fond caresses, the wife roughly disengaged her- self with— an exclamation of profanity. Her husband looked at her with an expression of agonv on his gentle features. “Are you sorry that I didn ' t go?“ he asked, in trembling tones “Of course not, 11 was the gruff reply, “But I wish to heaven you wouldn’t be quite so demonstrative.

CUTTING CLASSES Why should we students be compelled to attend such tiresome affairs as classes? All we do there is to listen to old worn-out jokes (the profs ' jokes are meant, not the profs), and hear the professors tell us how dumb we are. Sometimes we sleep rather than listen. Every now and then they fry to prove that we are dumb by throwing a mess of exams at our poor and unsuspecting heads. Being kind-hearted, and not desiring to disappoint the profs, we don ' t answe r the fool questions correctly, in order to give the profs the pleasure of flunking us. There are various ways of getting away from classes, such as sickness, car strikes, work, et cetera, but these all end in the same manner as a " cut. " Those students who cut class invariably attend Keith’s the first time, and each time thereafter they walk Ninth street in an endeavor to see " Charlie 11 in his " latest. " Oh, hum, it s a great life, but full of so many " DV f (appointments), for sometimes Keith ' s has a bum show, and sometimes we don ' t find " Charlie.

Others, thousands of them had gone before him thinking nothing of the terrible consequences, or what the end might be or if they would ever hear the call again. True, it was said by many, that their main object was the remuner- ation; but, even allowing for the uniforms and the food furnished, that was really a small consideration. The uniforms. Bah! When would they receive a raise? What chance had he to rise in the ranks? Yet he still hesitated and pondered on the different phases of the subject. There were so many things to be reckoned against going. The task seemed degrading; yet it was indisputably his duty. He had gone to the front be- fore, and he knew full well in what that duty consisted. After the calls of former times he had paid strict attention and had gone promptly but now he hesitated. Nevertheless vague, shadowy air-castles, carefully built and long cherished assured him that he was fitted for far better things- But the pre-emptory call to the front had come and that insistent sense of duty would not down. Yes, it was, indeed the only course. He would go Again, with a loud clang of the bell, the haughty hotel clerk ' s voice rang out : “FRONT!” So the hesitating bellboy stepped to the desk and shouldered the baggage of the newly arrived guest.

Dearly beloved brothers, my sermon this evening I have called " Sin. " Had it been any other subject I surely would have called you to attention by the customary " Dearly beloved Brothers and Sisters ' A few heavy bouquets were about to be tossed to him (not all flowers, either). The basis of all sin is greed. Liberality is the mother of virtue. But 1 an- ticipate; and by the by, in case I forgot to mention it before, that a silver col- lection (here some thousands fell asleep) will be taken up at the end of the ser- mon to aid in the payment of a certain salary now overdue. I draw your attention to this trifling point so that you might be getting your money ready once for all so as to avoid the contaminating influence at the end of my discourse. Money is the root of all evil. While there is yet time to get rid of all the root you possibly can, for he that layeth up treasure has it deposited in a com- bination locked vault that isn ' t opened in a hurry. In case anyone has got his quarter ready now and wants to get the evil thing ofl his mind, the church wardens will kindly make an initial trip with the collection plates. If any man has a quarter, (otherwise known as two bits, two thins and a thick, or five thicks) or four bits in his pocket, prayers will be pub- licly offered for him at the close of the sermon. Widow ' s mites are very accept- able — ‘from widows (let ' s hope there are none here). But to return to my text. What is sin ? Whence comes it? Whither does it lead? Oh. my brothers, when you go home tonight and draw the bucket from the well, drop a pebble into its dark uncertain depths and then listen for the final " plunk 1 What does that " plunk " represent? No, Not a stringed instru- ment. What does that " plunk " represent? It represents t He last despairing wail of the sin-engirt, the money-weighed soul as it falls, falls, falls, to a place that the presence of the ladies forbids me to mention other than by observing that it doesn ' t altogether fail of rhyme with " well. " Oh, ye money-lenders! Ye merchants and maker of notes, bartenders, cus- pidor scrubbers, and land grabbers, when I look at you I think " truly it is not money that is the root of all evil, it is evil that is at the root of all money. " And the church is $158,63 indebted to its minister. The plate will be passed around again. Wardens, get busy. The wardens will now pass around the plate for the last time. If anyone hasn’t made up his mind as to the exact amount which he wishes to give, the wardens will kindly stay with him ’till the devil is conquered and put beneath his feet.

Editor: I have a figure like a bundle of cord wood. What can I do to rem- edy it? Oh, what shall I do? Nell. Answer: We would have to see a picture; but according to your descrip- tion you need pruning. Jump over a cliff and if you are successful in landing on some boulders they probably might knock some curves into your shapeless self Editor : Could you give me a nice exercise to practice before going to bed? I am as light on my feet as a team of oxen and wish to limber up What shall Ido? Ella, Answer: The exercise, which I never practice, but which will be good for you, would be simply to hang out the bedroom window by your toes for fifteen minutes every night. This will throw your avoirdupois to your head and fake it from your feet ; which is what you desire. If you don’t get a shape like an open parachute inside of a week let me know. Editor: I am short and thin and desire to be taller and more shapely What shall I do? Betty, Answer : I advise you to move near a yeast cake factory and thrive solely on that fruit. By putting mercury in your shoes and tying a balloon about your neck you should be as tall as you wish. Editor : I am swarmed with college chaps. They won’t leave me alone one minute owing to my beauty as they claim. What shall I do? Phyllis, Answer: If you have a mug like an oil painting you should be proud, but I vow it is uncomfortable to have a drove of pants following one around. (I would suggest that you, instead of having a dog for a pet, cultivate a skunk.) Editor: I am athletic and find that the young men don’t pay as much at- tention to me as they should. Dear me, what shall I do? Emma. Answer: Perhaps you don ' t let them see as much of you as you should Don ' t be bashful. Show yourself.
