lt is a pleasant duty, I assure you, to wel-
come you here this evening to the closing
exercises of our Class, and to thank you for
your kindness and interest toward us, as evi-
denced by your presence here to-night.
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

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
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-
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-
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 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.

a hit in the play entitled, f'The Prince and the

EARL CLARENDQN COOKMAN
AS NVE LOOKED IN 1900.
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
Theuother sign, in bright letters of many
colors. gave to the world the following:
HGEMMI 8: COLEMAN
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
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
"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
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
"OLNEY R. PAYNE
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-
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
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
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

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-
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
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-
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

SCENES FROM THE PLAY.
Under these glorious colors three,
The red, the black, and blue,
The class of oughty-six you see,
You've just heard how it grew,
Till now it stands a noble band
Of loyal men and true.
So first behold our brave Joe Brown,
Our honored President,
A famous quarter-back was he,
But oh, the days he spent
Riding his pony through Virgil,
On a good mark intent.
And next we look o-n Roland Lea,
A full-back, brave and bold,
When Trixie pounds the running track,
There's naught but dust, I'm told,
But when he's dressed in fussing clothes,
Hels glorious to behold.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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! '
"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
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.
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-
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

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
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
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. The staff:

PAFF OF "ACADEMY MONTH
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:

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
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-
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. The cast
was as follows:
Edward, Prince of Wales, afterwards King
Edward VI, Tom Curty, the Pauper
Charles H. Riley, '06
Earl of Hertford, Lord Protector of Eng-
land ................. Vlfilliam Gemmi,i06
Lord Seymour, younger brother of Earl

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-
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

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-
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.

ASSOCIA TION FOOTBALL
lu 1902, when we entered the Fourth
Form. an Association football team was organ-
ized, and now it can safely be said that it was
one of the greatest teams the school has ever
had. 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.
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
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-
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
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
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

THE BOXVLING TEAM
BASE BALL TEAM
VVith but one man left from last year's
championship team, the base ball team began
practice the last week in March under the
most unfavorable conditions of any team that
ever represented the Academy. 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-
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-
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.

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-
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
Captain Riley, one of the veterans, played
an excellent game, and deserves much credlt
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..
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.
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
