Although of course we look forward with eagerness to the future, still it is with sorrow and a sense of deep loss that we leave behind us forever our happy school days, and depart from the fatherly guidance of our dear friend and head master, Dr. Kershaw. 'It is for us to show in the ensuing years that the ceaseless and untiring efforts of our teachers have not .been expended upon us in vain, and we shall know that whatever sue- cess we may gain in the future is greatly due to the training which we have received at old Germantown Academy. Thanking you again for your kind inter- est in us, I will now make way for our learned historian. I. I. BROWN. CLASS DAY ORATORS CLASS HIS TOR Y Ten years ago last September, in the year 1895, a small colony of youngsters, in fear and trepidation, emigrated, as it were, from their several homes, and settled on the historic soil of old Germantown Academy, there to begin the cultivation of their minds for lifeis conflict. Each member of this little band, practi- cally unknown to each other, and proud in the realization of commencing his school life amid the classic surroundings of the old Academy, soon found himself, like others, possessed of a courage unexpected, and Hlled with an enthu- siasm to do, so peculiar to all Germantown Academy boys. None of us had ever been out in the world before. We knew nothing of school life, of text books or teachers. VVe were, indeed, "clay in the hands of the pot- ters," and only the future could determine what the potters, our teachers, would make of us. . In a very short time this small colony of boys bound themselves together under a standard known as the Class of '06, of the Germantown Academy. As historian of this class, it has been delegated to me to write and read to you to-night its history. Of the original members of this Class of '06, only four have worked their way through from its organization to graduation. They are Charles H. Riley, H. Leonard Tissot, Wfil- liam H. Mechling and your historian of to- night. These four, with the other boys, who then made up the class, began their search for knowledge in the Fifth Form of the Pri- mary Department of the Academy, where, under the patient guidance, persistent efforts, and care of Miss Bushong, we were hrst taught our A, B, C's, and initiated into the wonderful accomplishments known as reading, writing and arithmetic. Wfe were proud boys when we knew how to read and write, and what we learned in this Fifth Form Primary, we hare since discovered were foundation stones necessary to sustain the superstructure of all our future knowledge. After being promoted into the Fourth lforin Primary, we, as a class, were strength- ened by the addition of four new members, Earl Sheble, Roy Wfatson, Sam Sterrett, and last, but not least, our chosen President, Joe Brown. All through this year we were again carefully cared for by Miss Bushong. VVe then had a year's growth on us. We held our heads high. Wfe felt we were really and truly Germantown Academy boys. For the Hrst time we realized we had moved up, that we had some other class to look down upon, and were no longer to be regarded as the "kids" of the school. The following September, when we had gone one step higher, and advanced to the Third Form Primary, four more boys sought admission, and were royally welcomed into the class. They were Wfilliam Keefer, Orme Schaefer, Roland Lea and Henry Lewis. This year our coach and instructor was Miss Bent- ley. Under her care and instruction we were taught to know: that the world was round, that there were other countries than the United States, other States than Pennsylvania, and other places than Germantown, Philadel- phia. She it was who piloted us through the dreaded intricacies of fractions, and showed us that any whole number could be divided into fractional parts. This year we won the reputation, in the opinion of Mrs. Kershaw, of being the straightest sitting class in the Pri- mary. Thisvvas due, we now admit, to our sticking rulers down our backs, and sitting thus for many weary hours. Une more year rolled away, and we as- cended as a class into the Second Form Pri- mary. VVe were getting up in the world, and indeed we felt it. Qnly twelve months more, and we would be the highest class in the Primary. This year but one new member joined us. That was Fred Shoemaker. Soon after we had come 'together this fall, we all joined the "Do Right Society." Wfe regu- larly attended the meetings of this society, and, although we tried to do right, and SO1'11G times succeeded, we had considerable of the CLASS OF 'OG old Adam in us, and generally wound up in doing wrong. We were proud, however, to belong to this society, and looked forward with great pleasure to the half hour, every Thursday, when Miss London read to us from that highly instructive and entertaining book entitled, "Toby Tyler." A Returning from our summer vacation the following September, we found ourselves to be the very highest class in the Primary De- partment. To our boyish minds we were at last of very great importance. There were now four classes under us, each member of which, we felt, was looking up to us as boys greatly to be respected and feared. This year Vlfalter Hentz joined us. Wfith the assistance of Miss Bouten, and under her guidance, we now tackled for the first time the study of Latin, and, though every member of the class then began its study, only six of our number continued to hold to it throughout their course. It was in this year one of our members, Charles Riley, distinguished himself and gave lustre to our class by carrying off the Kimber Memorial Prize. This was a prize given to that boy in the Primary Department who re- ceived an average of loo for deportment throughout the year, and who was the best liked by all his schoolmates. The termination of this year wound up our Primary days in the old Academy. Wie had studied and played together for five long years. Strangers at first, we had grown into friends strong and true. Our minds had matured, and we were now eager and anxious to step on and up into the Academic Department of the school, and begin in earnest our preparation for college life. In September of the year IQOO, more dig- nihed, and beginning to feel the responsibili- ties of upper classmen, we came together once more as a class on the old campus, and Robert Coleman now joined us. This was the begin- ning of our Academic days in the old school, and, though we realized we were now only in its Sixth Porm, we were content to be called no longer the "Seniors" of the Primary. lfVhile we were in this form we were dis- ciplined and instructed by Miss Bentley, Miss XVatson and Miss Mears. This year the track team of ouidclass competed for a prize cup with the Class of 'o5, and although the younger class, we came olf victorious. This cup we have succeeded in holding every year from then until now. Promoted with honors at the close of the year, we found ourselves in the lfifth Form Academic. For the first time we now entered into the realms presided over by Miss Xlfilson, where we soon became accus- tomed to the command "Class ready, workf' and by which we always knew an examination was coming. W'e were joined in this class by "Pete" Spaulding and Edwin Campbell. Here we also made the acquaintance of Mr. Deacon. This year we procured class pins, and though we recognized Mr. Deacon's ability as a mathematician to solve almost any problem, we felt sure he could never solve one which might read: "Given at any time, a class pin of 'o6. and the name of its owner, find the now present wearer of the pin." Possibly if Mr. Deacon had known some of the young ladies present to-night, he would have been able to find the unknown quantity even of this diffi- cult problem. Another year, with swelled heads, as Miss Wfilson might say, we crossed the hall and be- came "Freshmen.,' Mr. Truesdell now took us in hand, and led us along in our college preparatory career. Under his generalship the way was rough, and it is not to be won- dered at, that oftentimes we would steal a ride in the classics in order to get over the ground he daily mapped out for us. "Punk" Gruhler now joined us, and, as we all know, added great "weight" to the class. School athletics now attracted our at- tention, and one of our number, Fred Shoe- maker, became a member of the football squad and also a member of the track team of the Academy. Advancing to the Third Form Academic, Raymond Peck and Ed. Ralston, "the cowboy from the West," came into the class. Jack Graham also joined us, though the regularity of his atendance, "like angels' visitsf' were few and far between. Qccasionally we rushed the freshmen this year, though these rushes were stopped almost before they were begun. In our junior year we welcomed into the class two new members, Olney Payne and Wilbur Gemini. This year we decided to get new class pins, all of our old ones having strangely disappeared. Superintended by Bill Keefer, after much discussion and various bal- lots on designs, we finally got what we thought to be a very attractive pin, but whether the members of our class or their "best girlsv are the owners of these pins to-night, only obser- vation can tell. In March of this year we were initiated into Philo. Wfe then challenged the First Form to a debate, and although we lost, the team representing our class acquitted itself nobly, and with great credit to the class. Passing our preliminary examinations for college successfully, we rested forthe sum- mer, and returned last September to be reck- oned with as the Seniors of the Germantown Academy. W'e had at last reached the height of our schoolboy ambitiong and class-day exer- cises, the planting of the ivy, and graduation day were in sight. Joe Kuehnle now joined us, and we then numbered as a class twenty- four. The first important thing this year of course was football, and although the Acad- emy team was not as successful as in some former years, those of our class who were on the team did good work, and every one of the squad deserves great credit for the plucky game he played. Then came the prize debate, which was won by Joseph Kuehnle, with Olney Payne as second best debater, and honorable men- tion of Joseph Brown and Robert Coleman. This debate was one of the best ever held in the school. On February 16th our Class Dance came off. This social event of the Class of '06 was pronounced by many to have been the best dance ever given by any class in the school, and was greatly enjoyed by every one who was present. The staff of the Academy Monthly, com- posed of members of the Class of 'o6, have well managed the magazine this year, and have kept it up month by month to its usual high standard. The Relay Team of the Academy, made up entirely of members of our class. in the races at Franklin Field, April 28th, 1906, took Hrst place, hnishing ahead of De Lancey, Penn Charter and Episcopal. Thus our team, for the first time in three years, won the champion- ship, secured cups for themselves, and one more banner for the old school. In base ball, cricket and track athletics our class has done equally good work this year, and reflected credit upon the school. The base ball game with the Episcopal Academy was certainly a notable one, in which our team came off victorious after ten innings, the score being I3 to 12. The Belfry Club in February made quite a hit in the play entitled, f'The Prince and the Pauper," with one of our members, Charles Riley, playing the principal role, and acting the part of both the Prince and the Pauper with great credit to himself, his class, and the school. It was the first time a melodrama had been attempted, and it proved a great success as a dramatic production. The receipts from the play were divided between the German- town Hospital and the Athletic Association ol the Academy. Thus, as your historian, I have tried to narrate to you, fellow members, the facts that have occurred in our class at old G. A. To- night wensever our relations with the school, and go out from under the watchful care of Professor Kershaw, ever remindful of his per- sonal interest, patient consideration, and con- tinuous efforts in the welfare of each one of us. And now in conclusion let me say, that while the history of the Class of 'o6 of German- town Aeademy, as an organization, has termi-- nated, there will be many facts yet to be writ- ten of the future of each and every member of this class-individual efforts and achieve- ments in college, as well as success in profes- sional and business life-all of which will be a part of our Germantown Academy class his- tory. For without the early sowing of the seed of knowledge in our minds and its care- ful nourishing by Professor Kershaw and his assistants, not one of us would be as capablf' of, winning for ourselves the laurels the future may have in store for us. VV'e may become filled with college enthu- siasm and love our work in new fields here-- after, but I am sure there is not one of us but will always look back with love and pride to I the years that have just past and gone with n the historic walls, and amidst the inspirin surroundings of our dear old Germantovu Academy. 'Ts- Ty. n jp 1 Qill Q1 rg " Pa I EARL CLARENDQN COOKMAN f' .-xfvwf df. in-jo - WS' .50 va., .vi AS NVE LOOKED IN 1900. PR OPHECY VVhile wandering among the lodges in a village of the Ojibway Indians one day last summer, my attention was attracted by a curiously carved totem pole which stood in front of one ofthe most disreputable of the wigwams. I became interested in trying to decipher the meaning of the strange carvings and was trying to follow the adventures of an Ojibway warrior as shown on the pole, when I was startled to hear a voice call from the lodge door: "Oh, white man, why do you seek to learn of the deeds of Nietawa, who is deadg come rather and learn the future of your own tribe, who still live." I turned quickly and saw a toothless old squaw stand- ing in the doorwayg she beckoned me to follow and disappeared within. My curiosity was awakened by her words, so entering the wig- wam I took my place on a pile of skins which she pointed out and looked about me. In the middle of the Hoor stood a large stone kettle, ornamented with strange figures and inscrip- tions, in which a thick mixture of herbs was slowly simmering. To this dish the squaw turned her attention, and crooning and mut- tering to herself, she slowly stirred its con- tents and added fresh ingredients. At last a thick blue smoke began to pour up, a feeling of extreme weariness overpowered me, and perhaps I became unconscious. As if from a great distance came the voice of the hag: "Oh, white man, prepare to witness many strange and awful sights, for now shall the future of your tribe be revealed." At once there appeared before me an office in a great city, a lawyer's ofhce, judging by the books piled high on the shelves. But who is this stately looking man with his hair faintly tinged with grey, who stares at the ceil- ing with such a discouraged air? I asked. Then the ground shook violently, and there came a voice from the smoke, saying: "Know this for your former classmate, Brown, C011- demned to be a lawyer and to wait many long years for clients." The vision vanished, and in its place there came into view a long, dusty road, such as one may see in the rural districts of Pennsyl' vania. In the distance appeared the forms of two men of a type commonly called Wfeary XVillies. They wandered aimlessly along un- til they came to a soft, grassy spot under the shade of a maple tree. By this time I had recognized my friends, Wfatson and Shoema- ker, and so was not surprised to see them sink down in restful sleep upon the grass. Now the scenes followed each other in swift succession. First there appeared two large electric signs hanging in front of a spa- cious office building. On one in letters of a moderate hue were the words: "EARL C. COOKMAN Divorce Lawyer." Theuother sign, in bright letters of many colors. gave to the world the following: HGEMMI 8: COLEMAN Matrimonial Agency. All patrons given the personal attention of the proprietors." Searcely had I recovered from my amaze- ment when there Hashed before my eyes a platform decorated with red, white and blue bunting, and crowded with gentlemen, who seemed to be listening intently to one who was addressing the crowd gathered ,in front of the stand. I looked again at the speaker, and was astonished to recognize my classmate, Mechling. But what is the cause of his awful rage? I wondered, for his collar was dangling from his neck and one coat sleeve was 'torn from his shoulder. His eyes were lifted to heaven as if calling on the gods to send a thunderbolt and destroy an object which he was indicating by a gesture. I followed his motion with my glance and saw several large transparencies being carried past by a proces- sion. One of these read: "Vote the Straight Republican Ticket And Don't Forget Keeferf, Vlfhile on another there appeared: "The Reform Party Says That Keefer Makes Money From City Contracts. I But They Can't Prove It." Then for the first time I realized that I had seen those forces which were to contend in the next great political reform in Philadel- phia, and I hid my face in my hands and wept at the thought of 'the awful things that would appear in the newspapers. When I raised my eyes it was to see the interior of an office having a distinct air of prosperity. The furniture was of a massive oak, and I was especially attracted by a huge chair which was placed before one of the desks. VVondering to whom such a comfort- ably fitted office could belong, I looked at the lettering on the door, and imagine my surprise when I read: "CAMPBELL 8: GRUHLER Contractors and Builders." Turning back to Gruhler's desk I beheld a motto: "Eat, Drink and Be Merry, For To-morrow You Diet." I-Iowever, before I had time to meditate upon this last sight, I was startled by a Hash of lightning, and a long roll of thunder vio- shore, and suddenly there appeared the like- ness of a ship trying to' weather an awful storm. At times waves seemed to break en- tirely over her, and I thought she must sink. But on the quarterdeck I observed the cap- tain bravely directing the course of the ship. And I had no more anxiety for the souls on board, for in the captain I had recognized Tissot. . At once the thunder ceased, the scene changed, and I seemed to be looking down the sandy street of one of those towns in the far Wfest which spring up here and there as if by magic. Tall grain elevators appeared at one end of the street, and nearby I saw a small brick building, in front of which hung a sign: "OLNEY R. PAYNE Real Estate." Then around the corner in a cloud of dust came two horsemen, red-shirted cowboys they were. Their faces were tanned by exposure and they rode with a skill which showed con- stant practice. I recognized the faces of Ralston and Riley, and although Pat had grown to an immense size, the vision was so real that I was about to call to them when the Vlfestern town vanished, and in its place appeared a newspaper, much resembling the New York journal. The headlines were printed in large red type, and it had all the characteristics of a yellow journal. I looked for the name of the editor, and found printed in small type: "Editor-in-Chief, Eugene R. Spaulding. Business Manager, Samuel J. Sterrett. Knowing the abilities of these gentlemen in this line at the present time, I began to read tl1e paper with great interest, and soon found some news which surprised me greatly. It was a column headed thus: "Bishop Kuehnle entertains a large dinner party given by F. VValter I-Ientz, the Well-known philanthrop- ist, with the most brilliant after-din- ner speech heard in this city for many years." "Among the distinguished guests were Roland Lea, the newly- appointed minister to England, and Henry Lewis, the well-known sport- ing man, who last year won the Van- derbilt Cup." In the next column I read: "Jack Graham, the Athletics' star pitcher, leaves to-day to join the Chicago team. Graham was induced to leave by Manager Schaefer, of the Wincly City team, who offered him an increase in salary." "Governor Sheble Settles Coal Strike" was the heading which next met my gaze, and I was about to read more, when the lodge door opened, the vision vanished, and I was K. 0. 5-65? 33 led from the Wigwam in a half-unconscious state, by my friends, who had become alarmed at my long absence, and traced me to the place. I. RAYMOND PECK. OUR FAMOUS STA TESMEN 1.c1ci1'ffs and Gmzfle11'1c1z.' Perhaps during any two centuries of its existence, no nation on the globe can boast of as many and illustrious statesmen as our own country. From the time when our fore- fathers declared "that taxation without repre- sentation is unjustf' when they first beheld liberty looming up before them, from that time our country has been the fertile soil from which have sprung some of the purest of his- torical characters. Characterized by their patience, justice, heroism and truth, they stand forth as beacon lights in our history. They are known by that same courage and spirit which was ever pre- eminent in the early colonists. By this spirit alone the colonies grew and became prosper- ous, by our statesmen endowed with this same integrity, love of freedom and justice they were united into one nation and then later the unity of this nation was preserved by one whose statesmanship is unparalleled in our history. France has its art, Italy its music. It is generally conceded that Germany excels in science and England in wealth and power, but for the greatest and best statesmen our own beloved country stands at the head. ' VVas it by stratagem or good luck that we are to-day independent Americans? Not so, but rather is it due to that wise, noble and courageous statesman and general, George Vlfashington. It is due to the remarkable tact and genius of Franklin and Jefferson. VVhat could measure our indebtedness to Wfebster and Clay, who by their wise super- vision settled our great questions of currency and finance? By the eloquence and bound- less activity of Hamilton the Constitution was put through and then by his aid the impover- ished country was placed on the road to pros- perity. Never were the needs of the country so clearly perceived as by that great statesman who was characterized by his unflinching cour- age, his persistent devotion to duty and his high scorn of anything petty or mean. To Sumner more than to any other one man this country owes the prevention of war with Eng- land and France, when such a war would have meant the disruption of the Union. And what shall we say of Lincoln and Grant? How well it has been said, "Une may set up a pole and mark notches upon it and label them with the names of Caesar, Crom- well, Napoleon and even VVashington, and may measure these men against each other and dispute and discuss their respective places. But Lincoln cannot be brought to this poleg he cannot enter in any such competition. Not necessarily because he was greater than any of these men, for before this could be asserted how is greatness to be estimated? VVith Grant we are all familiar, though perhaps as a general better than a statesman, but his iron will, indomitable courage, tireless patience and a persistence and pertinacity that knew no li1nit, characterized him as a states- man also. He left behind him a record of achievements in behalf of his country, which might of itself have entitled him to fame had he never been a soldier. During his period of service the reconstruction of the Union was completed, the rash proceedings in the South were repressed and the heavy taxes rendered necessary by war were reduced. Chief among his works must also be reckoned the rescu- ing of the nation from threatened repudiation and financial dishonor, and the leading of the way to the restoration of a sound currency. At a time when our relations with Great Britain were strained near to the breaking point, Grant said: "I would deal with nations as equitable law requires individuals to deal with each other." In this spirit he sought and secured settlement of all differences by arbitra- tion, which service thus rendered to the coun- try and to humanity was an incalculable benefit. And we must not forget the statesman who said: HI had rather be right than be President"-Henry Clay. For nearly half a century this man was tl1e most conspicuous figure i11 .'X1llCi1'iC2l.l1 politics, tl1e 111ost inHuen- tial statesman i11 the councils of tl1e 11ation. The great 1112111 111issed tl1e Presidency, but he did 11ot miss tl1e love of a Whole 11ation. Ti111e permits 111e to me11tio11 but o11e more, tl1e best known to us all, a11d perhaps the best loved because l1e is ours, is with us to-day, President Roosevelt. His alertness of mind, courage. capacity for l1ard work, his XV2l'CCl1fllll1CSS over tl1e people Elllil their inter- ests have stirred i11 every American citizen their good will toward tl1is 111a11. Tl1e career of no states111an has bee11 n1ore brilliant and successful tl1at his, a11d what great work tl1e future l1as i11 store for him we cannot tell. To-day l1e stands before us, a true type of fX1Tl6l'lC2l1'1lS111, a model, an example to every you11g man. Can we 11ot draw somethi11g from tl1e lives of every 0116 of tl1ese, our famous states- 111611, which shall make us 111ore worthy to be called citizens of tl1is free a11d liberty-loving land? Tl1ese 111en are rare in tl1e public life of a11y 11atio11, and when We depart from the principles wl1icl1 tl1ey believed 3.1'1Cl practiced, we may well tremble for tl1e permanence of our government, for, as Lowell said, this will endure o11ly so long as tl1e ideas of tl1e found- ers remain predo111inant. The lives of those 111611 wl1o by their acl1ieve111e11ts and statesmanship succeeded in setti11g tl1is republic on its feet, and laying securely tl1e fO1.l1'lCl2l,lIlO11S 1113011 which has been built the greatest, freest and strongest nation of which the historyhof 1'1'13.1'1lil11Cl furnishes any record, should be a constant inspiration to every true American to-night, 2I1'1Cl teacl1 that life with some definite and noble purpose is worth livi11g.

IV. Harkl listen to the 1nand'lin strings For Keefer draweth near, The Secretary of our class, He's overworked, I fear, He tried to pawn his smile one day, 'TWouldn't come off, I hear. V. And Sheb, a. loyal friend is he, With brawn and brain together, Fui, but Hook can play Half-back in any weather, And honors thick and fast are his, His genius none can smother. VI. Reporter Egg we now shall view, But through a microscope, For Cookie is a being small, And yet it is his hope Some day to edit the sporting news, Or write great ads for soap! VII. Month in, month out, from morn till night, Hear Coley's hot air blow, He's ever flinging pointless jokes With measured beat and slow, Like Robert, ringing the old, old bell, Or raking the furnace below. VIII, But see great thunder breathing Pat, With Ralston by his side, Two brawny Westerners are they, A broncho each doth ride, Sometimes as pauper, sometimes as prince, As fortune doth betide. IX. The linguist Mech and student Peck, Both hold a good high score, For Wreck can speak in twenty tongues, And read in sixty-four, While Peck in Latin doth excel, Who could do any more? X. Kuehnle, our Chaplain, doth appear, A salesman of renown, He wanders east, and wanders west, And goes from town to town, And his manners are so charming, The ladies all bow down. XI. Lo Gemini, with his hat bands loud, Wliich once bound dainty curls, He goes on Mondays to the town, And sits among the girls, And when he hears his fair one's voice. His heart with rapture whirls. XII. Now four eleven forty-four, And Punk comes breaking through, Although from grinding night and day I-Ie's blind, like Samson, too, And crack we hear the base ball bat, And Graham's deeds we view. XIII. . Next on our roll a warrior bold, A soldier of fortune kind, 'Tis Hentz, a jolly lad is he, Of broad and genial mind, And the grace with which Miles Hendon played We elsewhere ne'er could find. XIV. And now comes Lewis on the stage, The model of our class, He Works for marks from morn till night, He toils that he may pass Examinations hard and long, And Schaefer bright surpass. XV. Toiling, rejoicing, sorrowing, See Sterrett onward go, Each morning hears the question asked, As he to Payne doth go: "Anything ready, anything done, For that Monthly-or no?" XVI. And now another tiny thing, Oh, say, what may it be? Ah! yes, it is a miniature man, But a brainy man is he, For Pete can figure out logarithrns, And work the rule of three. XVII. But yet before I end this ryhme, Of two more I must tellg Of Scrapple and Roy Watson tall, Who long for the recess belly For every one works in our class, But this pair work repel. XVIII. And now at last because he's least, But that's not true at all, For Shoey is a mighty man, Our leader in football, And Fritz a banjo, too, can play, And music from it call. XIX. Thanks, thanks to you, our teachers true, For the lesson you have taught, For in th' Academy of life Our futures must be wrought, And as our minds have now been shaped, Will move each deed and thought. XX. And now at last this p0em's done, With it my duty, too, And I have one more thing to say, Although it's nothing new, That we, the Class of Nineteen Six, To G. A. will be true. EDWIN L. CAMPBELL CENSORHS' SPEECH You have been having the time of your lives to-night. You have displayed remark- able sagaeity in discovering our foibles and eccentricities, and you have racked your diminutive cerebral tissue in devising what you thought to be fitting terms of opprobrium and insult to my classmates. But you yourselves are not to escape un- scathed. lt is my cheerful duty to defend the honorable members of this class from the as- saults of your mighty intellects, and to reveal to you in some slight degree the spirit with which we have received your feeble remarks. First, you, Edwin Campbell, so aptly de- scribed by a real poet in the words- Hlong, lanlc, lean and thin, as one of Satan's cherubimf, How you must have exerted that great mind of yours to recall so many of our peculiarities, and then put them into the silly twaddle which you call verse. VVhat contor- tions of the brain and what straining of the imagination you must have undergone in try- ing to convince yourself that you could com- pose a poem. No, Edwin, it won't do. You are as little fitted to write poetry as a cow is to catch mice. Do not try to be great in any other way than that in which Nature designed you to be great-the greatness which you have already attained. Now Mr. Raymond Quarter of a bushel. You too have had fun at the expense of your classmates. You have seen visions and dreamed dreams, and in your nightmare at- tacks you have babbled forth fiction as though it were fact. But your words have no terrors for us. We are used to your vagaries and mental aberations, and estimate them at their true worth. Though your prophecies contain no word of truth, still they may prove valua- ble in fitting you for your legal career, so that you wil be able, like the man in bed,ito lie lirst on one side and then on the other. Last, but by no means least, I must give my attention to you, Mr. Billy Gassoway Keefer. You are the chief offender. You have given free rein to-night to that eccentric mind and buzz-saw voice of yours, and your taunts and sarcastic remarks have no doubt seemed to you to be the scintillations of a brilliant intellect. But do not get puffed up, VV'illiam. Any phonograph could have reeled off brighter sayings and made more telling hits without half so much bluster. In bestow- ing upon your classmates the odds and ends which you have acquired in your visits to pawnshops and other questionable places, you have shown, perhaps, as much judgment as could have been expected from you, but your gifts betray rather the erratic nature of your own mind than any special peculiarities of your fellows. And now, Billy, I take pleasure in present- ing you with this ball. It is not covered, as you might suppose, with a map of the earth and populated with thousands of politicians, fakirs, and prize fighters ready to bow to the wonderful King of Gasers, Wfillie Keefer, but still it is a gift remarkably appropriate for you, for it is chuckful, like yourself, of Hot Air, Hot Air, Hot Air! ' VALEDICTOR Y "Look up and not down, Loolc forward and not back, Look out and not in,- And lend a hand." Ladies and GC1zfIc'mcn.' VVe have finished -the first stage of our journey of life, and before we set out on the new road, we halt for a moment to bid you, who have accompanied us thus far, farewell. VVith the mention of the word farewell comes a feeling of sadness. Having been to- gether all these years, must we not think of them ever with tender longing? Now we are to leave behind the warm friends and the careful guiding, and each, a "moral Columbus," steer our bark alone in vastly different channels, and it behooves us to aim high, and consider ourselves capable of ffreat things. As "new occasions teach new b Cs duties,'J it is for us to go forth, each with the firm resolve that I at least will do my duty. As ambitious young men, we will do all in our power to enlarge our experience, and the more we learn, and the deeper we penetrate, the more cause shall we find for being con- tinually thoughtful. VVe do not pretend to be able to assume the responsibilities of wise and learned seniorsg neither is there triumph in the thought of fearlessly entering a larger life and assuming its duties. But it lends ballast to the undertaking and gives steadi- ness to every venture to have 'the complete assurance that "well begun is half won," and "that in the bright lexicon of youth there is no such word as fail," and that golden oppor- tunity may be ours for the striving. Our private lives offer vast opportunity for high and lofty speculations. The world naturally looks with suspicion on the opinions of young men. This is merely a prejudice. VVe must be such men as will soften prejudice, and this can be done only by a firm determina- tion to keep the aim high. The accomplish- ment then will be more candidly appreciated. Humanity is all around us-it is to be bet- tered. The best time the world has ever seen is now, and a better yet is sure to be. "Let us then be up and doing, With a heart for any fateg Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait." Fain would we linger yet a little while, but we must go. To our principal, Dr. Ker- shaw, that dear, kind friend, in whose counsel and large fellowship we have ever held im- portant place, we bid good-bye. There can be no "Lest we forget" in his case. His kindly courtesy and unfailing anxiety for our wel- fare finds most responsive echoes in our hearts to-night, and memory will not fail to keep alive the bright flame of his refining inliuence. To our faithful teachers also, with their pains- taking zeal in our behalf, we pay our soul- felt tribute as tremblingly, yet fearlessly, we step aside, each to wend his separate way. Classmates: During this last school year we could scarcely wait until its close. Now that it is here, the last time we shall be to- gether in happy comradeship, how tinged with positive regret is the occasion, and how mem- ory lingers over the sunny past. The tumult of the halls in the ivy-covered walls, the dis- tant shout of the football field, the room where we held debate. And as we loiter here for this last hour of fondest farewell, with much of happiness in the background, we must not be unmindful that much of joy still awaits us, hopeful joys in the days that are to come. And may we, the illustrious Class of '06, pass from this bright period of you-thful accom- plishment, into the strength and pride of the glorious achievements of ambitious manhood, to strive with earnest endeavor to fill places in the world, which shall bear a lasting tribute to our dear old school. Farewell one, farewell all. JOSEPH KUEHNLE. -'Lui FRONT VIEWV OF THE ACADEMY, GYMNASIUM AND CAMPUS IVY ORA TIGN Friends, Teachers and Fellow ,S'tzLdeuts.' To-day we are gathered here for the pur- pose of celebrating an occasion which it has been the custom of the school to celebrate for manyyears, namely, to plant the ivy and to reveal to view the class stone. This seems to me, friends, not to be mere form, for the ivy and stone appear to have some symbolic meaning: the class in a way resembles the ivy-it starts out from the one trunk-the school, it divides into several branches-the members of our class in the various paths they are about to enter, and it keeps on dividing, each branch into many others, becoming more and more separated all the time-so will we become more and more separated as our lives go on. But, spread as the ivy may, it is always joined to the old trunk, and may we always be so, classmates, joined fast to the old school by our feeling, and may all of us, for whom it is possible, always keep up the old spirit by at- tending reunions, and may none of us ever forget we are the loyal sons of old German- town Academy. May we also, classmates, resemble, in sev- eral ways, the stone we place in the wall of the old building-may we always cling as close to each other as the molecules of the stone do, and may our love for our Alma Mater be as firmly imbedded in our hearts as the stone is in the wall, And now, friends, hoping that old Ger- mantown Academy will remember our class as long as it shall remember her-which is for- ever-I, in the name of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Six, unveil this stone and plant this ivy.

ACADEMY MONTHLY For the school year which has just ended, the Academy Monthly has been very success- ful from every standpoint. The school paper depends upon the work of the students and not of the teachers or any one else connected with the school. Of course the support' given by the students must be taken into considera- tion, and this, we are sorry to say, has been anything but good. The paper has its ups and downs, its good seasons and bad seasons, just like anything else, and it is not exagger- ating to say that the Monthly has been as good for the past year as it has been any time heretofore. To the present staff it has been a source of great pleasure, while at the same time it meant much hard work. Every member of the staff felt the responsibility which he had taken upon himself, and entered into his work with a determination to make the Monthly an attractive and interesting magazine. The 55 prophecy was that the heights attained and held by our predecessors, the Class of ,o5. would never be reached by the present staff. but the work left behind speaks for it. lt is true the first productions were crude, but it was not long until they had a more refined tone. Each member of the staff felt it his duty to publish a magazine of which his school could well be proud, and judging by the ex- changes received, this c.harge was fulfilled. All the departments were looked after carefully, but some of them deserve special mention. The work of the Literary Editor was ex- cellent. His stories were original and very interesting, and certainly were productions of a high class. The Business Manager deserves much credit also for his untiring efforts towards the betterment of the financial part of the paper. It was managed very wisely and at the same time economically.

Keeler, Jr, Edward Gillianis US PAFF OF "ACADEMY MONTH CLASS DANCE On the 16th of February the Class of '06 held its dance, which proved to be one of the most successful ever given at the German- town Academy. It was attended by a large number of graduates as well as friends of the Class. The dance was held in the Assembly Hall, which was handsomely decorated for the occasion. The music was excellent, and was kept busy until after 2 o'clock. Almost all the guests thought the dance was the best ever given by any class, and a large part of the success must be attributed to the following committee: Lea, Coleman, Hentz, Brown, Ral- ston, Mechling, Keeler, Gemmi, Riley, Sheble, Shoemaker, Payne and Peck. The ladies who acted as patronesses were Mrs. NN. B. Keeler, Mrs. E. Lea, Mrs. B. F. Mechling, Mrs. H. C. Riley, Mrs. R. Shoema- ker, Mrs. H. P. Brown, Mrs. H. Hentz, Mrs. J. H. Sheble, Mrs. A. Kelley, Mrs. E. E. Cole- man, Mrs. Holton. PHILOMA THEAN SOCIETY It was the ISt of May, IQO5, when the Class of '06 took charge of Philo. Our pre- decessors, the Class of ,o5, being so busy dur- ing their last month at school, gladly handed it down to us. Gfhcers were then elected and served until February Ist, 1906. Most of the debates were good, some of them being very spirited and hotly contested. On the whole, the questions were very inter- esting and great judgment was shown by .the Debating Committee in selecting them. The members were inclined to be bashful at first, but as soon as the term was well under way, the oratory flowed faster than rain from the summer clouds. V In February the boys from the Second Form were elected to membership in Philo. They were very orderly and were always care- ful not to break the rules. Initiating a new boy was always hailed with delight, and the attendance was very good after February, as two new boys entered each week. It was decided not to have a debating team, as it would take so much time to pre- pare the debates. However, we feel sure if there had been one, it would have been a good one, as we had splendid material. The following are the officers: First Term. President ....... ........ E dward H.

Court of Appeals-Ralston, Chairmang Lewis and Sterrett. Debating Committee - Payne, Chairman: Campbell and Meeliling. 2 THE PRIZE DEBA TE Une of the most interesting things that took place during the school year was the Prize Debate. The question which the debat- ers of the First Form selected to settle for all time was: "Resolved, That the railway rates should be controlled by Congress." The question, while rather a new one, is the one which the present generation will have to settle. It was rather a difficult one for young minds to discuss, yet the manner in which the debaters handled it deserves much praise. It was more of an oratorical contest than a debate. However, some of the boys brought out strong proof, and it was very hard to find any unfinished lines in their arguments. The entire school gathered in our large assem- bly hall in order to hear it, and by the manner in which each debater was received, it was evident that all were pleased. VVe wish to congratulate the successful contestants, and feel highly honored that they are members of our class. Joseph Kuehnle, the winner of the lirst prize, made an excellent speech. Although it was brief, it was right to the point, and he had an abundance of proof for each argument. The cool manner in which it was delivered proved beyond doubt that he was master of the situation at all times. Olney Payne, the winner of the second prize, also had a very good speech. It showed great preparation and was one of which any boy might well feel proud. As our space is limited, it will be impossi- ble to discuss each speech fully, yet we leel it our duty to say that joe Brown and Robert Coleman deserve special mention. To Sterrett, Peck, Cookman, Campbell, Lea, Keefer and Ralston much credit is due for their good work. VVe hope the boys will be just as suc- cessful wherever duty calls them to speak, and feel sure they will be. The "Primer" extends its hearty congratulation to the debaters. BELFR Y CL UB The Belfry Club of the Germantown Academy gave its thirteenth annual perform- ance at Manheim, on Monday and Tuesday evenings, February 26th and 27th, 1906, pro- ducing Mark Twain's story, "The Prince and the Pauperf' The play was an unusually hard one, and it was only after great prepara- tion that the boys were able to give it. Considering that it was the first time for a number of years that the play has been given two nights in succession, it was very success- ful. The attendance was good on both nights, and everyoneyseemed much pleased with it. The proceeds from the first performance went to the G. A. A. A., and the second to the Ger- mantown Hospital. Charles H. Riley, the Class of ,o6,s veteran actor, had the principal role, having the double part, the Prince and the Pauper. His acting was very good and added greatly to the suc- cess of the play. F. W. Hentz, '06, Robert Shields, '05, and Herbert Brown, '85, also are to be complimented. The stage direction was under the supervision of Mr. Palmer, '89, who has successfully staged our plays for a number of years. He deserves much credit for his work, and is hereby given our most hearty thanks for his faithful coaching.

RAYMOND PECK CM-3 BANJO CLUB BANJO CLUB One of-the most successful organizations of the school this year has been the Banjo Club. Our illustrious leader, W. W. Keefer, secured one of the best instructors in the city, Mr. P-aul Eno. He taught the club every Wednesday afternoon during the year. About the middle of the year it was thought that a drum would be of advantage to the club, so one was secured, and it has proved to be a val- uable addition. The club owes its success chiefly to the untiring efforts of our faithful leaders, Messrs. Keefer and Eno. It kept several engagements during the year with great success, having learned and played the following pieces: "My Hindoo Man," "S0rella," "Feather Queen," "Silver Heels," "Kalo0la," "Bright Eyes," se- lections from "It Happened in Nordlandf' "Moonlight," "Shy Anne," "Cheyenne," and "Indian Patrol."

Gemmi The Belfry Club, as usual, turned over its receipts to the Association, and We hope to meet all expenses therewith. Directors of Athletics Football-Dr. Nathan P. Stauffer. Base ball-Coach, Charles I. McCarty. Committee-john Blakely, Samuel Haz- ard, Horace Lippincott. Cricket Committee-Lewis W. Wistar Charles E. Kelly, jr., Frank S. White. Track and Relay-Dr. Nathan P. Stauffer FOOTBALL TEAM FOOTBALL This yearls football team began practice the last week in September under the most discouraging ,conditions that any Academy team had ever laced. There were only two old men back from last yearls team, and very little new material from which a good team could be built. Dr. Stauffer was chosen to coach the team for the fourth successive year, and, understanding the situation perfectly well, he made a call for candidates unusually early. It was a small squad which reported for prac- tice the first day, and he began one of the greatest tasks of his life-training a football team in one season. To make things worse, two of our star players, Wfatson and Baine, were disabled in the early part of the season. The first important game of the season was hailed with delight, for we were to play our opponents from De Lancey. The after- noon arrived, and as the sun sank down be- hind the clouds that evening, Germantown Academy left the Held defeated but not dis- graced. It was simply a heavy team's weight against a light tennis team. The final score was 12-5. Two weeks later we played our second I. A. A. A. game and defeated Episco- pal I6-12. Then came the final test to see whether Germantown Academy's little team would suc- cumb to Penn Charter-'s heavy one. This was the last game of the season, and the players went out on the field with the determination to do or die, and this they certainly did. Wfhile we were defeated 30-o, there was not an inch of ground gained against us which was not hotly contested, nor did a Germantown Acad- emy boy give up until the whistle had blown at the end of the second half. This was the manner in which the season ended. It was the first time for many years that Germantown Academy was forced to take third place. VVhile the team was defeated a number of times, yet Captain Shoemaker and his nervy players deserve much credit for the manner in which they played. Defeat is some- times as great as victory, and in this case it was decidedly so. Much credit must be given to Dr. Stauffer and his assistants, Messrs. McCarty and Whit- ney, for the faithful and untiring efforts put forth by them in order to have a champion- ship team. There is little doubt but what Germantown Academy would have been on top had the material been in school. VVe wish to thank H. C. Riley, Jr., for the manner in which he looked after the team, and also the students, alumni and friends of the school for the support given by them. Football Team F. F. Shoemaker Captain. N am e.

It was considered a great honor by the upper class men to win from us, as we always played a hard, consistent game. NVhen we had our first game with the Class of '05, it re- sulted in a tie, but a little later, when We met again to decide the contest, our more experi- enced schoolmates won from us. The past year the team did not have one defeat put down against it, and now holds the undisputed title to the championship. All the lower classes of the school were defeated easily, and little trouble was experienced in defeating the alumni. Captain Lea deserves much credit for his faithful work on the team and the good judgment used in leading his men. The following boys played in the games: Lea, Captain, Shoemaker, Peck, Riley, Sheble, Brown, Coleman, Ralston, Gruhler, Spaulding, Cookman, Hentz, Lewis, Campbell, Payne, Mechling, Schaefer, Tissot, Keefer, Gemini. 2+ ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL TEAM THE TRA CK TEAM This year's track team is one of the lar- gest and should be one of the most successful Germantown Academy has ever had. WVe started the season with three practice meets with Chestnut Hill Academy. We also had representatives in the Tome Institute and in the Middle States meets. In the Tome meet Shoemaker got first in the 220 yards dash, and Lea second in the 880 yards dash. In the Middle States meet Shoemaker won second in the 220 yards dash, and third in the IOO yards dash. In a dual meet with Swarthmore, we de- feated them by a score of 61 to 38. The fol- lowing fellows won first places: Shoemaker, Coleman, Campbell, Lea, Mechling, Gardner. The following fellows have already qualified for the team: Shoemaker Ccaptainj.Lea, Camp- bell, Coleman, Lea, Sheble, Mechling, Gard- ner, Shaw. ' THE TRACK TEAM THE TENNIS TEAM Many of the members of the Tennis team this year have been playing on other teams, such as base ball, cricket and track. This be- ing the case, the boys have not been able to practice regularly, which has influenced re- sults unfavorably. However, as the season is not over at the present writing, and there are still several games to be played, it is to be hoped that the team will win some victories and finish with great credit. Tennis is practically a new game in the school, and it h-as not been running long enough to stimulate an outside interest, which is necessary to its success. The team this year consisted of: Singles- Gruhler, Stehle and Adams. Doubles-Brown fcaptainj, and C. Riley. Substitutes-Hentz, Mann and Schaefer. E. Cookman, manager. THE TENNIS TEAINI BOWLING TEAM This year was rather a bad year for our bowling team. The best the team could do was to take the seventh place in the Scholastic Bowling League. The bowlers were all young and inexperienced, and none of them had ever been on the team before with the exception of Gruhler and Maxwell. Holton, one of our best bowlers, left school in order to attend Lawrenceville, so it was a comparatively weak team which represented Germantown Acad- emy. Nevertheless, the boys tried faithfully, and deserve much credit for their efforts. VVe wish to thank Mr. Charles McCarty for working so hard with the team, and are sure that our team would have headed the list if he had had the material. William Gruhler, who managed the team so well, deserves much credit also. The following are the averages of the members of the Bowling Team: 6 No. of games. Average. Gruhler . . . ...... 67 149 9-67 Maxwell . .. .... 66 152 21-22 Riley .... .... 6 o 148 3o-6o Schaefer ... . .57 139 41-57 Graham .... 52 ISO 19-32 Keefer .... 51 145 18-31 Tissot ....

Nevertheless, Coach McCarty, by his untiring efforts and great patience, succeeded in getting second place in the I. A. A. A. League. The boys were green and inexperienced along the lines of base ball, and it was precisely the same con- dition under vvhich the football team was forced to work. The time was too short to learn the game properly. Lack of material was another obstacle which we had to over- come. John Graham, our veteran third baseman, was elected Captain, and Ralston was selected to manage the team. The hrst I. A. A. A. game was played on our grounds at Limekiln Pike, Episcopal Academy being our opponents. It was a very hard struggle, but we won the game in the tenth inning. The next game was the Penn Charter game, which was played at home also. Ogden was in the box for Penn Char- ter, and While he held the boys down to a very few hits, the Penn Charter team hit Graham freely, and we lost the game by our ovvn stupid playing. The last game was the De Lancey game at Wfestmoreland. Wfhile our team was not in the best of condition, we succeeded in defeat- ing them by a score of 5 to 1. As Friends' Central had not been offic- ially admitted to the League, and Cheltenham Military Academy forfeited all their games for the season, this gave us second place. VVhile it is true that the team did not play good base ball, yet some of the players deserve mu,ch credit. Captain Graham was our strong point. As a pitcher he did very well, and there is little doubt but what we would have had first place if he had received good support. As a Captain he was very good also, and used great judgment in leading his team. Riley and Hammett did very well in the Held, and 'lglrown also did well in the box and at first. XVe wish to thank the boys for their earnest work, and are sure they will give a better account of themselves next year. Mr. Charles -l. McCarty deserves much credit for the manner in which he coached the team. He was out early and late with the team, and there is no doubt but what Ger- x, f 9 mantown Academy would have had a cham- pionship team had the material beenin school. K Wle extend to him our hearty thanks for his good work, and wish him much success in the future. Thexteam played as follows: Graham, pitcher, B1'OWV11,l'l1'St baiseg Beale, catcher, Holmes, second baseg Gilliams, shortstop, Maxwellhthircl base, Riley, left field, Ham- mett 2l1lCl.GO1'l131ll, centre Held, Keefer, right field: substitutes, Spaulding, Tissott, Stoever, Crawford. . 1 THE BASE BALL TEANI CRI CKE T TEAM VVith only three men left from last yearls team, cricket practice began the first week in April at the Manheim cricket sheds. Quite a number of boys came out when Captain Riley called for candidates, and earnest work was begun at once. At the beginning of the season, our prospects for a championship team were not at all promising, as most of the players were young, but work overcame every obstaicle, and at the present time we have an excellent chance to win the champion- ship. The season opened with Germantown Academy playing Central High School. It was our hrst game and the boys were a little nervous and lost the game. The next week we defeated Northeast Manual Training School easily. Then came Radnor High School, who at that time held first place in the League. Every one expected Radnor to win, but the old Germantown Academy nerve and determination prevailed and the team won by a good score. Then came the Penn Charter game, the hrst of the T. A. A. A. League. The boys played a beautiful game and won with ease. At the present writing these are all the games that have been played, but as the teams which we have defeated are the best which we have to play, we have great hopes of winning the championship. VVe extend our hearty thanks to the offi- cers of the Germantown Cricket Club for their kindness in allowing us to use their grounds. They served as our home grounds, affording many luxuries which the team would not have had elsewhere, and we certainly appreciate it. As our space is limited, we will not be able to say much about the members of the team, yet we feel it our duty to say something about them. Captain Riley, one of the veterans, played an excellent game, and deserves much credlt 103 for the judgment which he used in selecting his team. Maxwell ancl Stoever bowled very well, while H. Graham and Fagan eoulcl be counted on for a number of runs. The other players were also very good, and deserve much creclit for their faithful work. W'ilbur Gemini also deserves much credit for manag- ing the team so well. The team was selected from the following 1nen: Riley QCaptainj, Maxwell, Stoever, Sheble. Gardner, Tripp, H. Riley, H. Graham, Fagan, Lippincott, M. Mann and Goodwin.. 104 THE CRICKET TEAM RELA Y TEAM It was evident from the first that the Relay Team for this year would be one of the best Germantown had ever turned out, for we had all last year's team back again. The trials were held at Franklin Field two weeks before the Pennsylvania races, and the boys finished in the following order: Campbell, Shoemaker, Coleman, Lea, Mech- ling and Sheble. On the following Saturday the team ran in the Princeton games. Captaini Lea was sick so Wfatson, one of last year's team, ran in his place. The team ran very well and finished second, only being beaten by Balti- more City College. At the Pennsylvania races all of the team were in good condition, and Captain Lea ran first, finishing in the lead. Our second run- ner, Coleman, gained about fifteen yards. He tagged Campbell, who hardly held the large lead. Cnr last runner was Shoemaker. He broke the string while iifteen yards ahead of the De Lancey man, who finished second. The team ran the mile in the astonishing time of 3.37, and holds the Cf. A. record. The former time was 3.46. VVe came in first, making the best time of all the preparatory schools and bringing a new banner to old G. A. 107 THE RELAY TEAM This year we had an excellent cross coun- try team. Robert Coleman was elected cap- tain and managed the team very ably, training the fellows about three times a week and on Saturday mornings. Wfe had hare and hound games. The team ran in four races. These races started from the University boat house and were run over a gk-mile course. Cole- man got third in the lnterscholastic race on November 4th, and his time was I8 minutes 55 seconds. The last race was an inter- academic as well as an interscholastic, The team was a great success and of great benefit to fellows who are running long distances this spring. The following composed the team: R. J. Coleman, '06, captaing M. Gardner, 'ogg W. H. Mechling, 'o6g R. Lea, 'o6g O. Payne, ,065 L. Mathews, 'ogg A.
