TI-IE APPALACI-IIAN TRAIL
As part of the great American Youth Movement a mountain trail is now being developed
that starts from Mt. Katahdin in Maine and following the mountain ridges southwest ends at
Mt. Oglethorpe, Georgia. The length of this trail is about thirteen hundred miles and its
high point is on one of the mountains in North Carolina, where it rises to a height of sixty-
eight hundred feet. So far as possible this is a sky line trail or path opening up continually
magnificent views of valleys and foot hills, of streams and rivers and lakes. People interested
in the 'gout door life" have associated themselves, here and there along the line, in auxiliary
clubs. These clubs take over certain sections of the trail and provide for the survey, the
marking or blazing and the actual work involved in making a trail suitable for hikers or
horseback riders. Adirondack Shelters will be erected at intervals, for the use of campers and
there will also be rest houses and small inns for their accommodation. The trail following
the high ridges of the Blue Mountains through Cumberland and Adams counties, Pennsyl-
vania, climbs to the top of Pole,s Steeples, a rocky cliff projecting from the mountain top and
affording views of surpassing beauty and much historic interest. From the porches of Osoga
Lodge, the Gettysburg Academy log cabin, this point is in plain view across Laurel Lake. A
vigorous climb of thirty minutes will sufiice to bring the "hikers" from the lake to the Steeples
and the magnificent view is well worth the effort.

A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADMASTER
Another Commencement Day, june Sth, is just ahead. You,
young men of the Class of 1934 are rounding out the 107th
year of the life and history of Gettysburg Academy. You are
about to join the Alumni of whom almost zooo are living. As
you go forth into the various colleges and universities of our
land, I trust you will indeed carry with you and cherish the
legend, Old Spirit of Gettysburg Academy. A Uspiritv is an
intangible thing but very real. The boys as well as the
of the school.
of the school.
Masters help to build up and carry on the spirit
I have noted in your class, a Fine attitude toward
and purposes of the administration for the good
Cooperation is a necessary thing in a family, a business, a
church or a school. This you have shown as a class and as
individuals and it has helped wonderfully in making an efficient,
smooth-running school and a pleasant place for both Masters
and students to live in.
Your class has contributed most effectively to the athletic
record of the school. From a student body reduced on account
of the depression have come a football team with three victories,
one tie and four defeats, a basketball team with thirteen victories
and one defeat. Our baseball team has just returned from
Mercersburg Academy with a victory, six to five, perched upon
its banners. This is the first time, I believe, that we have de-
feated that powerful team in baseball-a fine and promising
opening for our season. Mr. Wolfe and Mr. Ziegler deserve
high credit for the training of our teams, but they have found
good material and a willing cooperation in the boys of 1934
who helped to make these winning teams.
School life properly guided is a delightful experience. There
is plenty of fun along the way. There are friendships between
Masters and students and among the students and classmates
that endure for years to come. Think of these things, boys
of 534, and when you go forth from the Academy take with
you and cherish all those things of value that are represented
by the letters, O. S. O. G. A.
Affectionately your friend, CHARLES I-I. HUBER.

We, the Osoga staff of 1934 have endeavored to edit as attractive a book as best efforts and ability
would permit. We have tried to improve this edition, inserting some new and some 'Qsnappyw features.
It has been our aim to publish a year book which will be cherished by all throughout many decades
The respective positions on the staff were won by competition. This policy was introduced by thc
Osoga staff of 1933, and the result having proved very successful, was again adopted by the Senior class.
It is the sincere hope of the staff that this yearis Osoga will meet with general approval and

Years from now, when we look back
And thru these pages start to sack,
Vivid memories shall return
Of the school at which we learn.
And it is then that we'll remember
A basketball game late in December
Or a baseball game in the middle of May.
Such pictures thru our minds will stray.
For the work of our teams this year was good
And that's the thing that makes our teams
Winners every time it seems.
And years from now to our surprise
Our sons shall have grown to considerable size
And then it is that we will say
"I don't see why my son should stay
Ar home when he could be away
just like I was in my younger day.
Besides, I think he'd like to go
,Cause lately he's been feeling low
And all because he has the blues.
He needs a cure so I'll tell him the news.
And I know of no better remedy
Than Gettysburg Academyf'

Bud is an all around admirable student. Although this "Hoodlum" appreciates the
Gettysburg Campus, he thinks there is none quite equal to that of Hood. We are all free
to have opinionsg "Bud" has taken advantage of this fact. His opinion is that there is no
one in the world as beautiful as Irene, "BudU is a master in the art of dancing. He actually
is a Q'wow,', too. As a matter of fact, he even conducts lessons for those of us who are
not so accomplished and skilled. This young fellow has a personality that lures all and

Burt with his masterful stride has been a familiar sight on the campus for many years.
For years the fellows have been tnystified as to the seemingly irresistible magnet which has
so regularly drawn our Clarkie up town. Now this last year we have found a solution-
a certain Wfommyi' Qfemalej is the answer. Good natured Burt is the friend of all.
Although lifels problems weigh heavily on Burt at times, he is always in a fine humor.
As an authority on marine engines or detective cases Butt is the last word. We all like
Burt, and the underclassmen and faculty will hate to see him go, we feel sure.
HAGEY FOUSE CAMPBELL

No graduating class would be complete without a strong, silent man. Here he is,
just that. Hagey hails from the 'lSmoky City,', but regardless he is a clean cut fellow.
When we look at Hagey, we always think of one of those fellows that mothers point out
to their young sons and say, "Now, son, just try to be like himf, With the sound of
Hageyis musical laugh still ringing in our ears we bid him an 'tau revoirf' and wish him
the best luck in the world.

Sam has won a host of friends in the short time he has been with us. His genial
personality and sunny smile have helped make this campus a better place on which to
live. The picture of Sammy lbravelyj fighting on the gridiron or on the basketball
court is one not to be soon forgotten. Some of the fellows have noticed a great change in
Samg ever since that first trip to Hood, he has never been quite the same, but regardless,
one just can't help liking Sammy-boy.

As another of our ambitious students Eddie retains the all famed name of "Gigolo.,'
He is one of G. Afs most ardent lovers, and he has a keen desire for the opposite sex.
Eddie was also one of the most promising athletes of the school, and will probably shine
for the University of Pennsylvania in the future. Stroh has convinced the fellows that
Sunbury, Pa., is a land of paradise and promise.

Now here is an ardent sponsor of girls' basketball teams. Rain or shine one will

Pete is the type of fellow who has all the qualities that go to make up a perfect
gentleman. Besides being a good looking chap he is one of the best dressed fellows in the
school, and of course, you would expect him to have many feminine admirers, which he
has. Pete also possesses a natural talent for music. One will always find the room
crowded when z'Texas" decides to strum on his guitar or to toot a soothing melody by
vmy of the clarinet. "Pete" is also a studious soul and uses his spare time to the best
advantage, sometimes even studying far into the night. Let,s hope he meets with the
best results when the laurels are dealt out. But do not be led to believe that "Pete',
is a "book worm," for at the arrival of football season 'cPete" was one of the first candi-
dates to try his skill at this manys game. We all think "Pete', is a fine fellow and feel sure
the fellows will witness a sad farewell when graduation day rolls around.

Harry Lehner. There is a name that means something. It means two hundred and
some twenty odd pounds of beautiful manhood. Those who know Reds know that deep
beneath that mighty chest is buried a heart of gold. He has been a student at the Academy
for many years without a single mar upon the clear horizon of his career. Harry has
watched them come and watched them go. and all have felt that great bond of good fel-
lowship and brotherhood toward him. Football opponents knew to their sorrow what it
meant to oppose Tarzan the Terrible, that avalanche of bone and muscle. For Hve years
l'Reds,, has graced the Orange and Blue eleven, being elected honorary captain as a suitable
climax. Athletics is not the only phase of fame that the gods have so generously showered
upon Harry, as he was chosen by the Senior class as their guiding hand and president.
This energetic man, topped by a gorgeous halo of fiery locks, has been active in practically
every line of school activity existingg therefore it would be foolish for us to try to discuss
his true worth in this so small an allotted space. Yes, as the class breaks up, each going
his separate way, we realize, and we would like to pass the word along to any other reader,
that Harry Lehner is a name that means something-and a friend long to be cherished.

George, a man among men, arrived at Gettysburg from York, Pa., in the balmy
September days of 1933. He immediately began to prove himself a great asset to football
and was the Academy's dashing fullback. All those who know George like him and like
his old Dutch speech. George is a gentleman and a worker. One never sees George with
a local girl because of his unshirking loyalty to his York weakness.

The person accompanying this write-up happens to be the first player to receive

to make a notable showing in every game. Then came basketball. Again this sport demon
came to the fore, sinking them in right and left. We are proud to say that "Herrin did
his share in our victories and fought bravely in times of defeat. We find 'Kleen a helpful
little article to have around the building too, for if it weren't for him some of the fellows
would doze and perhaps miss a class or two. However, no one ever worries about
going to slee when "Horn" is around. He really is a jolly good fellow, and if "Joey

might make the mistake of thinking, but he is a student of classics. Yes, many of

The result should be an extremely well read man-so it is. In flitting here and there

tragedy. "Wally', tells us his all, his very life lies to the south'ardg we surmise heill be

The folks back home in Sagamore think quite a lot of their boy Clair, and so do we.
Clair fsometimes spoken of as the Sagamore Kid, is one of those less fortunates who has
only had the pleasure of attending G. A. for a single year. Soon after arriving, that is,
as soon as old man Blues had stopped fooling around, Clair fell into the school life and
in clue time became a valuable part of it. We feel that we cannot pass by this gallant
gentleman without letting you in on a little secret-Clair has those fascinating brown eyes
that you read about but seldom see. Each afternoon as Clair flashes looks here and looks
there, any a feminine heart starts throbbing furiously. Aside from envying 'QFlash's,'

to the last breath. He was a help fwithout a doubtj to the Academy in athletics. On
the football team :'Tut" played quarterback. In basketball he held clown a guard position.
He is also a great letter writer, especially to a certain 'QFran,' of his. We wouldn't be at all
surprised to see uTut" conducting a "Lonely Hearty' column in some newspaper or maga-

a big success, and there wasn't any question about the matter. Luckily for us along with
that realization came another. "Bill" realized that he would rather give these good old
United States of ours a break than some foreign soil. The result? Well, his duds were

BANKS LEO SIEBER, JR.
This call and lanky youth is to be seen with flowing tie dashing to and from class
almost daily. In the two brief years that Banks has been with us he developed such a
profound love for the school and the surrounding campus that he spends most of his
time there, never bothering about the outside world at all. At the dinner table is where
our "Blue-Boyi' really shines. Can that man put it away! In fact this is Banks' favorite
indoor sport. He is a loyal patron of the finer arts. Banlcs may be quoted as saying
during a recent interview, "When I set out to do something, I do it Qtime out for expec-
torationl. There is nothing half-way about me. My motto is 'Accomplish or be imper-
ceptible to worldly eyes' 7' This sums "Banlcs,' up in fewer words than we could ever hope
to do. He is a man of character and determination, leading us to believe he will succeed
when the time comes.

We take great pleasure in presenting "Blimp,'. Even though we have only known
him for a short time, he has worked his way right into the midst of us, and he already
seems like an old-timer, In fact, he is an olcl-timer when it comes to knowing prep
schools, for "Spats" has gone to more prep schools than most of us have ever seen, finally
ending up at "Deah old G-burg". This two hundred and fifty pounds of human flesh
and bones can never be seen without his pals, the spats, which seem to him to make up the
most important part of any man's wardrobe. "Ton,' is always ready to oblige us by telling
us any one of his numerous experiences, which he has encountered in his extensive travels.
All in all "Fats" is a very fine fellow, liked by everyone in the school, he is Gettysbutgys

valuable athletes, having acquired letters in football and basketball. To see Moore gallop-

UPPER MIDDLER CLASS
Though this class is of but eleven fcount ,eml members,
they have participated in every sport and almost every activity.
Scholastically the class rates well, with most of the members
doing their best.
When Coach "Hipsi, Wolfe led his men out onto the grid-
iron at the beginning of the season, there were five men from
the Upper Micldlers who were heaving the pigskin around.
Two of them finally got on the 'Varsity squad.
During the basketball season there were two men from the
ranks of the class to distinguish themselves on the floor. They
were Witzel and Dehlin.
Coach Ziegler gathered his baseball nine together and found
the same recurrence, Dchlin and Witzel. Haldeman, Crede,
and McGaw were also out for the team but both lVIcGaw and
Crede resigned their efforts to tennis after a short tryout with
These classes taken as a whole rate higher than last yearis
same classes. Scholastically there may be a slight improvement,
but this year there was a great deal more organization and stu-
dent cooperation in sports.
Though a Junior football team was organized, no games
were played against opposing teams. Perhaps next year there
may be a little more leadership and active interest taken in this
branch and a good stout Junior team trained to defeat all
On the basketball floor it was a different story, however. A
basketball team was drawn up consisting principally of those
among the lowest classes and they met, and defeated, and were
in turn defeated themselves by town teams.
During the present time a squashball team, consisting of
those in Junior ranks anxious to gain fame on the diamond,
has been in training under the able leadership of Coach 'lDad,'
Ulrich during the 3:3o'eXercise period. It is interesting to note,
however, that not only the lower classmen fill the ranks of this
body of courageous teammates but also a few of the purile
members of the graduating class whose names will be withheld.
These men have vowed for the last month or so that they will
meet the Phi Sigs and wipe them off the field. Let us hope so,
for so far they have only talked of it.
As aforementioned, both Crede and McGaw are out for the
tennis team, and Hindman is also representing the class in
The class was especially well represented on the Osoga Staff.
Those who were on the business staff were: Hindman, Halde-
man, and Arras. Those on the editorial staff were Arras,
Hindman, and Merton. Those elected by the students on the
faculty for the Student Senate were Dehlin and Hindman.
Bauersfeld is the waiter in the dink class and connoisseurs
have proclaimed him to be first rate. The class is also repre-
sented in the nertsury by that handsome brute, Arras. Lynn
is the ofhcial woman-charmer for the class, although Crede runs
in a good second. Thus Haldeman can be classed as the chief
woman-hater. As a whole the next year's graduating class
will be A-1 as far as to present standing.
Some of the members of the Lower Middlers went forth to
gain greater glories, A few gave support to the Varsity squad
others pitched in their help to the courageous
and totally victorious basketball five, still others lent their sup-
on the gridiron,
port to the iron-men on the Varsity baseball squad.
It is needless to say that the Lower Middle class is and
always has been the craziest class in the school. This year it
was especially nerts, and we shall take an interested glance
over it. In the first place we must needs meet the ringleader, the
author of this yearys nertsury as it were. His name stands out
above others: it is "Pete" Magaddino. This is the third year
that 'iPete', has been with us, and all of us agree that it is
the cokiest. Next comes the wonderman, Cholerton, who
amused us with his brilliant second story work last year. This
year he has considerably improved, but recommendations can
still be given. Last, but not least, we must mention the famous
Ross, who smears goose grease on his hair to show that he has
a high forehead. Ross is a self-made man, we can compliment
him on that fact principally.
Now to get back to the more serious aspects of the group,
we can frankly say that they have done good work in all the
lines that they have given themselves to and let us hope that
they continue to do so until graduation they do part.

INTERESTING EVENTS FROM BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG
MEETING OF GEN. GORDON AND GEN. BARLOW
Never was a battle marked with nobler kindness between
men, oflicers, and privates of the contending sides than that of
Gettysburg. Here is one worthy of record:
The advance of General Early in the afternoon of July first
had commenced. The brigade commanded by Major General
Gordon was among those to attack the Union right flank. The
Confederate advance was steady, and it was bravely met by the
Union troops, but the Federal flank was forced to fall back in
spite of a brave defense.
General Gordon's brigade were in motion to seize the knoll
from which the opposing line had retreated, when Gordon saw
lying directly in his path the apparently dead body of a Union
ofhcer. He checked his horse and observed that the officer
was still living. He immediately dismounted, and seeing the
head of his foeman lying in a depression in the ground, he
placed a knapsack under it. It was then that he discovered
the officer had been shot through the breast. He then gave
the officer a drink of brandy and water from his flask. As the
man revived Gordon said, "I am very sorry to see you in this
condition, I am General Gordon. Please tell me who you are,
I wish to aid you all I can."
The answer came in feeble tones, "Thank you, General, I am
Brigadier-General Barlow of New York. You can do nothing
for me, I am dyingf' Then after a pause he said, l'Yes, you
can, my wife is either at the headquarters of General Howard
or Meade. If you survive the battle, please let her know I
died doing my dutyf,
'QYour message shall surely be given to your wife," replied
General Gordon. 'lCan I do nothing more for you?',
Again after a pause General Barlow responded, "May God
bless you, only one thing more. Feel in the breast pocket of
my coat, the left breast, and take out a pack of lettersf, As
General Gordon was doing so, the dying man said, 'INow please
read one to me. They are from my wife, and I wish that her
words shall be the last I hear in this worldf'
Resting on one knee, with the beat of running feet going by
and the boom of cannon in his ears General Gordon with tears
in his eyes read the letter. It was a missive from a noble woman
who knew her husband to be daily in peril and with pious fervor
she breathed a prayer for his safety and commended him to
the care of the gods of battle. As the reading of the letter
drew to an end, General Barlow said, "Thank you, General.
Now please tear them all up. I would not have them read by
others." General Gordon did so and after pressing General
Barlow's hand he bade him good-bye. Mounting his horse he
quickly joined his command. I-Iastily penning a note on the
pommel of his saddle he wrote Mrs. Barlow of her husband's
19M-i- - -F- - -- ------- o s o G A --- -T ---- -- - - - - - --H-M-34
condition and informed her where he lay. Addressing the
note to Mrs. Barlow at Meade's headquarters, he handed it
to one of his staff, told him to tie a white handkerchief on his
sword, and ride to the Union line and deliver the note to Mrs.
On receiving the note Mrs. Barlow hastened to the field,
though not without danger to herself, for the battle was
still in progress. She soon found her husband and had him
taken to a near-by farmhouse. Through her devoted minis-
tration he was soon well and again took command of his brigade.
Eleven years passed. General Gordon thought Barlow had
died and General Barlow thought the same of Gordon. At
the capitol, Washington, General Gordon was present at a
dinner party given by O. B. Potter, a representative in Con-
gress. When Potter introduced him to a gentleman with the
title of General Barlow, General Gordon asked, l'Are you a
relative of the General Barlow, a gallant soldier, who was
killed at Gettysburg?"
General Barlow announced, NI am that General Barlow who
was supposedly killed at Gettysburg, and you are the General
Gordon who succored mel" The meeting of these two gen-
tlemen was indeed a worthy affair for each believed the other
to be dead.
TI-IE STORY OF JENNIE WADE
Perhaps the event of Jennie Wade and Corporal Johnston
Skelly was one of the saddest to occur.
As a lad of nineteen Skelly entered the volunteer corps leav-
ing, as so many other soldiers did, his ideal, Jennie Wade,
behind. It was her picture and letters which cheered him
through the long weary campaigns. While this regiment was
fighting at Winchester, Virginia, the young corporal was
wounded and due to the lack of medical attention died. There
was no way for Jennie Wade to learn of his death, for news
traveled more slowly then than now, and facilities were lacking
for sending back a list of wounded after every engagement.
Perhaps it was just as well that she did not learn of her
lover's plight, for the fates had decreed that she was to be
A few days later the streets of Gettysburg were jammed
with Confederates. And in the midst of all these scenes the
stork had visited the home of Jenniels sister, a Mrs. McClellan.
Jennie knew the baby had to have attention and the mother
made comfortable. So she and her mother went to the brick
house that was in the very path of the invading army. Wfhen
the lead began to Hy, Jennie was in the kitchen baking. She
was thinking only of the hungry family. As the battle grew
fiercer a bullet came through the outer door and passed through
an inner door behind which she was baking. She clapped her
hands to her breast and fell, the bullet having killed her in-
stantly. Perhaps after all it was a friendly bullet which kept
her from learning of her loverls fate.

breaking, John L. Burns, a citizen of Gettysburg, who was

TI-IE STUDENT SENATE
The Student Senate is an important part of any student
body. It serves as an essential link between the students and
the faculty, thus rendering the students a service and the
faculty an aid in dealing with the men of the school. The
Senate is really the voice of the students, which at times has
a certain right and privilege to be heard. Due to this cooper-
ative system of student government the school as a whole is
better managed, the fellows more content and happier, and a
be tter discipline maintained.
As has been the custom in past years, a given number of the
members of the Senate are elected by the students and a
number are appointed by the faculty, When the group had
been completed, they in turn held a meeting at which time
they elected officers and decided upon the adoption of a worthy
constitution. Frank Graff received the honor of being
named as president, Harry Lehner was made vice-president,
and William Hollis was elected secretary. The remaining body
of the Senate was constituted as follows: George Longanecker,
Hagey Campbell, Sam Campbell, Bruce Hackman, Wallace
McNeil, Barrick Wagner, Bert Dehlin, William Hindman.
These representatives did their part to the best of their
ability, giving the needs and desires of the students undivided
attention throughout the year.
TI-IE RING COMMITTEE
One of the foremost thoughts in the minds of the Seniors
was the choosing of a Senior ring. Therefore the first thing
our president did was to appoint a ring committee with Harry
Lehner as president. After much hard thinking and much
debating the contract was awarded to Elliotts of Philadelphia.
The ring selected was unanimously approved by the class. It
is a blue onyx set in a gold setting with Gettysburg Academy
engraved around the stone. On each side of the stone is a
replica of the school portico and the date. Much favorable
comment has been heard on the ring from outsiders.

A word or two about our dances,
For just a moment if you please,
For they will never be forgotten,
These dances, these social activities.
First of all, we introduce
Our girl friend to the chaperons.
All the way down the line we lead her,
Introducing her as Miss-er-Jones.
This saves a lot of trouble,
Because Jones is really a common name.
Otherwise this introducing
Woiild be nothing short of a guessing game.
At last the orchestra is playing,
So on the dance floor we must go,
And to the strains of a popular number,
Gently and closely sway to and fro.
And while a crooner softly croons,
As softly as a summer breeze,
Many of us are probably wondering
What would happen if he'd sneeze.
Then suddenly someone becomes embarrassed
And immediately everybody knows
That they are not the only ones
Who stepped on the girl friend's toes.
Nevertheless, the memories of
These dances we'll always treasure,
Because these social activities
Have given us hours of pleasure.

On Saturday evening, January 21, the first major social event
of the year was held. Ir was the Mid-winter Dance.
Thirty couples of Academy and College students laid aside
their class worries and all joined in the hilarity of the occasion.
Paul Ecker and his Checkers provided the music for the
dance. So delightfully pleased were the merrymakers on that
night it made one believe it was Fred Waring himself.
A band of hosts and hostesses consisting of Dr. and Mrs.
Charles H. Huber, Mr. and Mrs. Earl E. Ziegler, Mr. and
Mrs. Charles R. Wolfe, and Mrs. Mabel Phelps formed the
receiving line, The success of the dance was due to the un-
tiring labors of the committee composed of the following:
Frank Graff, chairman, Harry Lehner, Harry Bradshaw, Ala-
stair McGaw, Barrick Wagner, Bert Dehlin and Robert Frost.
: The boys, so well were they pleased with the last dance,
could hardly wait for this event.
This dance was held in order to make possible the presenta-
tion of this yearis senior class gift,
A roll on the drums at ten o'clock was the cue, Dr. Huber
presided and Harry Lehner, president of this yearls class, made
the presentation. Following this a brief intermission ensued,
refreshments were served and shortly after the hilarity was
Summer formal dress prevailed, white flannels and dark
coats, white linen suits, while the lovely ladies were attired in
formal spring gowns also.
The very efficient committee that made possible the enjoyable
Mid-winter dance had charge of this Spring dance. The hosts
and hostesses were the same who favored the committee with
their presence at the previous dance. No small expression of
joy was shown by those who attended the ball.
This dance was held June 7th, the eve before graduation.
The Senior dance, so named in honor of the seniors, who were
spending their last happy moments at UG. A." This dance
terminated the social activities of the school year. Although
everyone was having a glorious time, sadness could not help
being expressed on a few faces as they thought of leaving the
dear Alma Mater.
The same committee and hosts and hostesses piloted this
dance, Many congratulations are extended to those who so
unselfishly labored to make the social activities the real thing.

For many years gifts have been given by the gradu-
ating classes of Gettysburg Academy to show in a small
way their affection for the Alma Mater. These gifts
have been chosen to render the school another touch of
beauty as well as something of great use. In the month
of April the Class of '34 was confronted with the task
of a selection. It was noticed that since the preceding
Class of '33 had given beautiful crystal chandeliers for
the dining hall, the adjoining lobby looked somewhat
neglected. This situation was soon rectified by the
worthy decision of the class. Equally handsome chan-
deliers of a similar and well matched style were given.
Once again Dr. Huber was called upon to exert his fine
choice, which he did to the unanimous satisfaction of the
class. The chandeliers were presented at an impressive
unveiling which was held in the form of a dance.
-,F COMMEN CEMEN T
Qn Sunday evening, june the third, in College
Chfirch, the Baccalaureate sermon was preached to the
Seiiiors of Gettysburg Academy by Rev. H. Mussel-
man, D.D., pastor of St. John,s Lutheran Church,
Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Dr. Musselman graduated
from the Academy in '94,
WThe following Friday was Commencement Day for
Gettysburg Academy. At ten o'cloclc the entire student
body gathered in front of the Main Building, and led
by Frank Graff, the chief marshal, it proceeded to
Brua Chapel where the exercises were held.
The program was opened with the invocation by the
Rev. Dwight F. Putman, pastor of College Church.
The rest of the exercises consisted of solos, rendered
by Miss Marie Budde, formerly of the Chicago Civic
Operaj the valedictory by H. William Phelps, the salu-
tatory by R. Barrick Wagner, and an address by Profes-
sor Harvey D. Hoover, ,95. The singing of 'Beautiful
Saviourn and "Anima Gettysburgiael' brought to a close
the 107th commencement of the Academy.
Of the graduating class, several members had spent
all their prep school days here, and had formed friend-
ships to last throughout the rest of their lives and surely
all went away enriched both mentally and physically.

1934 FOOTBALL SEASON AT GETTYSBURG ACADEMY
Gettysburg Academy ,,,,
Gettysburg Academy ,,,,,,,, .. ,,,, .26
In football during the 1933 season Gettysburg Academy was
represented by a team which was at best very erratic. The
team evidenced great potential power throughout the whole
season, but failed to click completely until the final two weeks
of the season. The team closed the season brilliantly, however,
by defeating the schoolis bitterest rival, Harrisburg Academy.
A squad of about thirty reported to coaches, Wolfe and
Ulrich, for preseason conditioning at Laurel Dam on Septem-
ber Irth. When the squad reported, it was seen that a light
and fast team would be the result. Throughout the season
the team developed as the players received much needed ex-
perience. Captain !'Reds" Lehner was the only player returning
from last yearis victorious eleven and the team as a whole was
In the opening game of the season the lack of practice proved
too great a handicap for the Orange and Blue to overcome
when, after only three weeks of training, the team journeyed
to Mercersburg where it was defeated after a gallant struggle
2I-0. In this game several Gettysburg players were injured

which may have aided somewhat in causing so bad a defeat.
However, this gave several promising substitutes some much
Next week the team played Sunbury High School. Several
times Gettysburg was in easy scoring distance only to lose the
ball on downs when they lacked the final punch needed to
score. The Hnal score was I3-o in favor of Sunbury. During
this game the Orange and Blue line gave a sample of the
beautiful playing ability, both offensive and defensive, which
has always been true of Gettysburg teams. Frank played well
for G. A.
In their hrst home game Gettysburg met one of their old
rivals, Franklin and Mai'shall Academy. In this game the
"Little Bullets" completely outplayed the Blue and White boys
from Lancaster. Four different times Gettysburg had the ball
inside their opponents' ten yard line and had a first down.
Each time, however, they lacked the final punch needed to score.
The final score was o-o, but Gettysburg made I2 first downs
to their opponents' two.
19-M--I ------ -- ------ o s o G A ---e ------------- M-34
On the 29th of October Gettysburg played hosts to York
Collegiate Institute. In this game, facing much bigger men
physically, the Orange and Blue machine began to click and
the men from Y. C. I. went home after suffering a 26-I2
defeat. Gettysburg clearly showed their superiority by scoring
26 points in the first half and holding their opponents score-
less. During the second half Coach Wolfe sent in almost a
complete second team which contented itself by keeping the
lead. York could score only two touchdowns against a weak
reserve team. Longanecker was the high light on the Gettys-
On October 28th the Orange and Blue journeyed to Valley
Forge where they were defeated 7-o. This game was one of
the best of the season. Gettysburg made one march down the
field after another only to be stopped each time by a valiant
Cadet team which held desperately while in the shadow of
their own goal post. Meanwhile one of the Cadet team ran
back a punt through the whole Orange and Blue team for the
only score of the game that was fraught with thrills. In this
game Gettysburg showed a beautiful passing game which almost
won the game for the Little Bullets.
The next week the Orange and Blue journeyed to Williains-
port where it met the strong Dickinson Seminary team which
afterward claimed the state championship. In this game, the
great spirit which had been so marked in previous games was
not manifest. The Gettysburg team played half-heartedly
and lacked the will to win. The Orange and Blue went down
to a 50-o defeat, which is the worst defeat suffered in many
years. "Reds" Lehner played a good game on defense for the
Against Emerson Institute on their home field the Little
Bullets regained their stride and defeated the boys from
Washington 26-6. The Orange and Blue demonstrated their
superiority in every phase of the game. Again in this game,
Gettysburg flashed a brilliant aerial attack and scored two
touchdowns through this game. The third touchdown was a
result of a march down the field which Emerson was unable
to stop. Longanecker scored the other touchdown on a bril-
liant 95 yard run through the whole Emerson team. Emerson
scored their lone touchdown against the second team.
In the final game of the season Gettysburg defeated their
bitterest rivals, Harrisburg Academy, I9-6. Both teams played
heads up football and both scored one touchdown on breaks.
One Harrisburg player bounced the ball out of an Orange and
Blue manis arms and ran for a touchdown. Fasold scored for
Gettysburg when he caught a fumble still in the air and ran
for a touchdown. The other two touchdowns were scored by
long steady marches down the field. One, however, stopped
on the 50 yard line when Longanecker broke away and covered
the remaining distance. This game was most gratifying to all
for Harrisburg was the pre-game favorite.
Thus closed the 1933 football season at Gettysburg Academy.
Wfhile perhaps not as successful as the past seasons have been,
the season of 1933 was marked by a team which strove vali-
antly against almost overwhelming odds. It is almost impos-
sible to pick out many individual stars for Gettysburg. The
team played wonderfully as a whole, and it would not be fair
to mention any as the best, for all showed up beautifully at
different times. Coaches Wolfe and Ulrich are to be greatly
praised for the showing made by the Orange and Blue this
year. It was due greatly to their untiring efforts that the
season was as successful as it was.
Following a custom of recent years a football banquet was
given to the squad at the close of the season. Various mem-
bers of the squad made speeches and certificates were presented
to the lettermen. The student body also gave their praises to
the squad. Harry Lehner was elected as honorary captain
Lehner-Guard-Honorary captain. "RedsH certainly lived up
to the great reputation he had earned during the past
years. His great defensive work will be long remem-
Wfetzel-Endf-Lloyd will be long remembered for his ability
to snag passes. He was a sure tackler and fought hard
all the way.
FrankWTackle-About the best tackler on the team. He was
a defensive terror. No team made much through his
side of the line. He was good on the offensive too.
Tawney-Tackle-This former high school star did nobly. He,

for this man, Gettysburg would not have had such a
McNeil-Guard-l'Wally,' played a great game in one of the
unsung positions. He was always giving his best and
this best was mighty good.
Campbell-End-Q'Sam" was always in there. He never stop-
ped going. He, too, could snag those passes beauti-
fully. He was another first year man.
Utz-Center-Another good center in thc long line of G. A.
boys who have starred in that position. Q'Bill', was good
on both defense and offense.
Moore--Back-l'Tut,' was a good all around man. He was the
signal caller and chose his plays beautifully. He, too,
surely could catch passes. l'Longanecker to Nloorev was
heard often on the Gettysburg field.
Longanecker-Back-A real triple threat man. George was
the throwing end of that Longanecker to Moore combi-
nation. He was high scorer for the season.
Dehlin-BackiK'Bert', was a good defensive back. He usu-
ally led the interference, but could carry the ball nicely
when called upon. He, too, was a good pass receiver.
Yevakw---Back-"Bohn surely could back up that line. He was
about the best defensive back for Gettysburg for several
years. He could go on the end runs too well to suit
Fasold-Back-Stroh was used mainly as a utility back and
showed his speedy driving game very often. His work
on the offense and defense will cause us to remember
Q! ' ,7
Lotito-Back-A fast shifty man who was handicapped in the
early part of the season by injuries. In the latter part
of the season he showed his mettle and was a main cog
in the offense.
Hildebrand-Manager-Q'Joe,, was one of the best managers
at Gettysburg for many years. He was a willing worker
and proved an inspiration to the team. He was always
willing to cooperate in anyway.
Also we should not forget those who gave willingly of their
time and energy so that G. A. would be successful. To the
substitutes is undoubtedly due much of the success of the team.
For these good subs made the first team fight hard for their
posts. Therefore, thanks and indebtedness are owing to the
following: A. Rogers, lVlcGaw, B. Hockman, Hocker, Miller,
Fogel, H. Campbell, Graff, Bradshaw, I-Ialdeman, and to
others who served faithfully and earnestly.

lUndefeated by any "Prep" quintetj
Our basketball squad completed one of the most successful
seasons in the entire history of the school, chalking up a record
of thirteen victories and one defeat.
Coach Earl E. Ziegler took a group of men who had never
been on a court together, and out of them moulded a high-
scoring, hard-Hghting team.
Opening the season with a home game against Carson Long
Military Academy, the Little Bullets ran up a score of 52
points to the cadets 19.
A trip to York to play the quintet of York Collegiate Insti-
tute was the Bullets, next objective. Showing more skill than
before, our Orange and Blue men brought them into camp to
the tune of 34-25.
Following this came two home games, the first of the victims
being the quintet from Franklin and Marshall Academy, who
went back to Lancaster with the score 37-16. Harrisburg
Academy was the next victim to fall into the clutches of the
Bullet passers with a score of 46-25.
Fully aware of the power they had developed and confident,
the Bullets next met the highly touted and powerful Valley
Forge Military quintet on their own floor. The cadets were
ahead at half time in this game, but the Bullets, showing their
Hne form and playing to the uttermost, 'lbrought home the
Coming back to Gettysburg our boys met the quintet com-
posed of the College Freshmen who gave them their first and
only defeat of the season. The Freshmen gained a lead in the
first quarter, and after coming back with that never ending
vitality "our boysv began to 'lswishn them in from all angles on
the Hoorg however, the final whistle shrilled out the defeat
after a well fought and hotly contested fight 30-27.
The champions, undaunted by their defeat, played a return
game with the cadets of the Carson Long Military Academy on
the latteris floor. Unaccustomed to the small floor, the cadets
took the lead, however not for long. Clicking as their old
selves once more they whipped the cadets by the sting of a
Then our prepsters met once more our rival, Gettysburg
College Freshmen. Keyed to the top to avenge the defeat, the
champions started off with a big lead, and although a great
battle was put up that night by the Freshmen, they could not
bring the Little Bullets under the yoke, and we emerged vic-
Mt. St. Mary's Prep took the next thrashing, the Orange
and Blue quintet scoring 46 points to the rivals' 16.
The season was drawing to a close fast but sure, and with a
return game on the old home floor our 'lchampsi' defeated
once more York Collegiate Institute to the tune of 54-31.
The season came to a close after the Harrisburg Academy
game. Although the Harrisburgers were going to try to break
our record, they were sadly made to bow their heads to the
champions with the final score being 16 baskets for our quintet
K32 pointsl and 7 baskets for them C14 pointsl.
The statistics for the season are thirteen games won, one
lost. Our boys scored 582 points to their opponents' 328.
The outstanding player of the team and highest scorer was
Joseph Lotito, diminutive forward from Hazleton, Pa.

Ranking close after him are Lloyd Witzel, forward, Kearney,
N. J., Rolaert Yevak, center, also from Hazleton, Pa., Bert
Dehlin, guard, Kearny, N. J., and Robert Moore, guard,
Philipsburg, Pa. So well, and so closely did these men work
together, that it is difficult to choose among them, and baclced
by a fine type of reserve material consisting of Stroh Fasold,
forward, William Utz, center, Samuel Campbell, guard, and
George Longaneclcer, guard, they developed into an excep-
tional prep school team.

Since the 1934 baseball season is in its prime as this goes to
press, all indications point to a very successful season at Get-
tysburg Academy. Thus far eight games have been played
and Coach Ziegler's boys have been successful in seven of them.
When the first call for candidates was issued one of the
largest squads in recent years reported. There were, however,
only two veterans of last year's team at practice. This was not
discouraging as many newcomers showed excellent ability.
After about a weelc's practice the squad was cut to eighteen
men. Soon the first team was picked with Longanecker as
catcherg Dehlin pitching. The infield consisted of 'Witzel at
Hrstg Moore at secondg Lotito at short, and Yevalc at third.
In the outfield were Hoclcman, Fasold and Sneeringer. The
subs are Pitts, Fogel, A. Rogers and Rogers.
The first game was played at Harrisburg Academy. The
boys returned defeated but not downhearted by a score of 11-12.
The next game was held at Mercersburg. To their great
chagrin and our joy we returned victors by a score of 6-5. In
our first home game Y. C. I. was encountered. They were
sent back home sadder and wiser men. They were snowed
under by a score of io-2.

The tennis team seems to be fairly well established by now
and we have hopes for its coming season. The tennis team is
at present under the supervision of Coach Viggo Swensen who
is a whirlwind on the courts himself. Up to this time the fel-
lows have shown a good spirit in the recent eliminations
and the matches between the different consecutive players. We
Because, fortunately, of the increased attendance in the
school, there has been a reawalcening of interest of both the
Rifle team and the Tennis team.
The response to the call for recruits on the rifle team
brought spontaneous results. After practicing for about two
weeks the team went in for a somewhat uneventful season. Ac
hope that the team this year will be better than the team of the
preceding year, for although the last ycarls team played only
three games, they lost two of them and tied one. This yearis
team seems to predict a good victorious season and as this
goes to press, the student body wish them every success.
the first match the Freshmen won with a high score. The
next two bouts were with Carson Long who tied the team and
then beat us. As the starting of the season was somewhat
late clue to a misunderstanding in the management, the team-
mates were just getting under way when the season ended.
May the succeeding seasons be more eventful.

In the early part of the day,s engagement he was wounded
twice, and, although suffering greatly from his wounds, he
faltered not but pressed on, taking an active part until four
o'clock in the evening when he fell badly wounded in the ankle.
The Union forces retreated leaving him in enemy territory
where he remained until the following morning.
John Burns survived the battle and was for many years the
constable of Gettysburg. He died February 4th, 1872.
GENERAL WARREN OF LITTLE ROUND TOP
General Warren is given much credit for his brilliancy in
choosing Little Round Top as the key of the position of the
left Union battle line in the second day's battle. Having been
sent by General Meade to inspect the condition of the extreme
left of the Union line, he saw the military importance of Little
Round Top which was unoccupied except by a signal station.
The Confederates at that time lay concealed, waiting for the
signal for assault, when several shots in their direction caused
them to move. The Hash of reflected sunlight from their
bayonets revealed their long line outflanking the Union posi-
tion. The Confederates were already advancing when Warren,
noticing the approach of the Fifth Corps, rode to meet it, caused
two brigades of infantry and a battery to be detached and
hurried them to the summit. The dragging of the guns was
a difficult task. They were hardly in time for the Confederates
were also climbing the hill. However once in position on the
hill, he drove the Confederates back and Little Round Top
remained in the Union armyis hands.
SPAN GLER'S SPRING
During the night of the second day's battle the soldiers of
both armies, Union and Confederate, mingled freely in obtain-
ing water for the wounded at Spangler's Spring. There was
an exchange of news and talks of the old home between the
Blue and Gray with very little feeling of hatred. They were
men fighting for what they thought was right, men who were
worthy to be called Americans.
Ar about one o'cloclc in the evening on the third day's battle
the artillery combat started between the two armies. About
HIGH WATER MARK PICKETTIS CHARGE SEMINARY RIDGE
150 cannons along Lee,s entire line opened fire and from their
mouths poured death and destruction. General Hunt, chief
of the Union artillery, was in no haste to reply. After locat-
ing the enemy's guns, he opened fire upon them with eighty
cannon-that being all that could be placed on their interior
line. Instantly the whole ridge upon which the cannon were
placed seemed ablaze. The duel raged for two hours. General
Warren meanwhile signaled from Little Round Top of the
discovery of a large formation of troops in the edge of the
woods. General Hunt then ordered all the gunners gradually
to cease firing in order to allow their able cannon to cool, to
replace the disabled batteries, and to retain enough ammuni-
tion to receive the attack from the woods in the front.
The Confederates were now deceived, they believed they
had demolished the Union guns. The charge started at three
olcloclc. The fresh division of Pickett was appointed to lead
the van. These brave veterans emerged from the woods with
their guns upon their right shoulders, marching across the mile
of ground as though they were on parade. It was a splendid
sight, and even the Federal army looked with admiration at the
lines. When they had reached half way, all guns along the
Union line renewed their fire. The Confederate cannon were
silent for the ammunition was exhausted.
The Union batteries were tearing them apart in many
places. Still their line moved steadily on, closing the vacant
gaps, time after time. However, the charge was repulsed by
the withering fire of the Union guns.
Many of the Union batteries had been nearly demolished
during the artillery duel, Lieutenant Cushing commanding a
battery had but one gun left. He was working the gun him-
self, with a lanyard wrapped around his wrist and being mor-
tally wounded he cried to General Webb, "General, I,ll give
them one more shotf' He fell dead and the weight of his
body discharged the piece.
General Armisted, a brigadier of the Pickett division, had
reached the stone wall "at the angle." His small body of men
numbering one hundred surrendered their arms after a hand-
to-hand conflict which lasted but a few moments.
And with this repulse the day, the battle, and the Southern
cause were lost, the dawn of a new American freedom had
come at lastl

This year there has been brought to our notice very little
information beyond that which was published in last year's
issue of The Osoga concerning the various colleges and fields
of activities which graduates of Gettysburg Academy have
entered. Graduates of the class of 1933 entering various
colleges are given.
l'Scotty" Bradbrook is attending New York City Collegiate
Institute. Meredith Havens and "Bill" Hutchinson are both
at Rutgers. James Charley, Edwin Brainard and Richard Mil-
ligan are at Pitt. Justus Denner is studying a pre-med.
course at Western Maryland. John Daub is at Drexel.
"Boomer" Girton and 'iCocky" Robbins have gained honors
on the athletic field at Penn State. Indalecio Perez is asso-
ciated with the American News Company of New York. Ed-
ward McGill who has been successfully selling insurance, will
enter Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall. Wil-
bur Lynch has won scholarships at Trinity. Maurice Kohler
is at Cornell. Victor Falcone is at St. Lawrence University.
John Irvin and George Pitzer are at Roanoke. Richard Meyer
is attending Carnegie Tech.
Gettysburg College has taken a few members of the class
of '33 after graduation and they are: George Brown, Robert
Calhoun, Eugene Hetrick, Harry Opperman, Philip Pagliaro,
Herbert Smull, William Strolis, and Peter Triani.
"Dave" Boyd, '33, is a salesman for a grocery concern and
Xvilliam Smith is successful in the butter and egg business.
Paul Ecker, '33, has been the director of numerous dance bands
in the vicinity of Gettysburg.
"Plug" Neuman, '31, is at Virginia, Ray Doyle, '22, after
teaching at his Alma Mater for a semester, is now practicing
law at Portage, Pa. Richard Wolfe, '30, was elected to Phi
Beta Kappa and is now teaching at his dear Alma Mater.
David Balfour, '32, has been awarded two scholarships at
Brown University. Luther Hare, '31, was editor of the 1933-
34 Mercury, the literary magazine at Gettysburg College,
Moody, '30, and Babylon, '30, were given high honors
in connection with the history department at Gettysburg Col-
lege. Raymond Miller, '31, has been elected President of the
State Y. M. C. A. Charles B. Eager, '86, is now principal of
the William Penn High School at Harrisburg, Pa. Madeline
Bcrelis, '21, is at Fort Stotsenburg in the Philippines. Cap-
tain George E. Jacobs, '06, has just returned from ten years in
Dr. Jacob R. Jensen, '19, writes that after he left the Acad-
emy, he attended the Gettysburg College, receiving the B.S.
degree in 1922, and with
the object of preparing
himself for the work of
a medical missionary he
went to the University of
Maryland Medical School
and graduated from that
institution in 1926. After
one year's interneship at
the University Hospital in
Baltimore, he was com-
missioned by the Board
of Foreign Missions of
the United Lutheran
Church as a medical mis-
sionary to Liberia, West
Africa, and served one
term as medical mission-
ary returning on furlough
in 1930. During a year
on furlough he attended the London School of Hygiene and
Tropical Medicine, receiving a diploma D. T. M. and H. from
that institution. Upon completion of that course he returned
to the Liberian field.
Charles Fuller, '27, married Miss Margaret K. Murray,
August 25, 1933. Earl Rudisill, '08, has recently been elected
JACOB R. JENSEN
president of Thiel College. In 1921 he received the degree of
Master of Arts from the University of Pittsburgh, and in 1925
received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from that school.
He has also held positions as an instructor in various schools.
We congratulate this alumnus upon the fine work he has done.
Dr. Gulck, '18, like Dr. Jensen, attended Gettysburg Col-
lege, University of Maryland Medical School, and also interned
at University Hospital, Bal-
timore. He was then com-
missioned by the Board of
Foreign Missions, of the
United Lutheran " Church
and sent to Liberia, West
Africa, as medical mission-
ary. During his first fur-
lough he attended the Ham-
burg Tropical Institutfe,
Hamburg, Germany, re-
ceiving the diploma D. T.
M. He then returned to
Liberia resuming his work
as medical missionary.
Dr. Gulck and Dr, Jen-
sen have been fortunate in
working together the past
year at the Phebe Hospital.
The work has been very in-
teresting and one that has kept both the doctors busy. Thus
during the past year 7504 patients visited the dispensary con-
nected with the hospital, one-third of these patients were
natives and two-thirds civilized fLiberianJ. The treatments
given during that year were 16,929. All these patients came
from a total of 128 towns, some patients walking eight days
to reach the hospital. There they can come and be relieved of
all sorts of conditions. Huge elephantoid tumors weighing up
to 50 pounds have been removed, strangulated hernias have
been cured-where before it was certain death. Yaws, which
afliict a vast number of native people, responds almost miracu-
lously to injections of salversan or bismuth preparations-a
magic cure as far as the natives are concerned and every dis-
pensary day they Hock to the hospital for treatment. Huge
sloughing tropical ulcers, some of years duration, respond
quickly under modern treatment. In all these conditions the
native umedicine men" fail utterly to help them. Thus the
work is ever growing in popularity, and it is indeed a blessed
work, for through this means of expression the patients are
brought under the iniiuence of the Gospel.
A LIST OF OBITUARIES ARE GIVEN:
It was with deep regret that we learned of the death of
Samuel Serena, '32, l'Sam" was still close enough to many
of us and all who knew him felt something
go out of their lives.
Rev. G. Ketner, '88, died at sixty-six
years of age from an illness which began
with a paralytic stroke. Dr. Herbert A.
Allison, ,90, professor of History and Po-
litical Science at Susquehanna University,
died July 17, 1933. Franklin S. Leisenring,
'93, died June 2I last, at his home in
- 1- - Washington, D. C. John E. Meisenhelder,
'93, fifty-seven years old and a prominent
Hanover physician, died at his home last
July. Harvey M. Becher, '92, superintendent of the Mary M.
Packer Hospital at Sunbury, died. He was sixty years old.

In the South Mountains situated not far from the historic
Pine Grove Furnace stands the Osoga Lodge, a week-end and
football camp where many pleasurable leisure hours are spent.
Osoga Lodge is maintained by the school, and after a week of
study at school, one is glad to get away from its restrictions
and out into a natural atmosphere.
The environment which surrounds the camp is of unques-
tionable natural beauty and historic wealth. Barely two miles
from camp stands the original Pine Grove Furnace in a little
settlement of the same name. Ir was here that part of the shot
was made during the Revolutionary War to supply the needs
of XVashington's army. The furnace has long ago been aban-
doned and now stands as a memorial to its own once great
production. This district was noted for the iron which was
mined from its hills, the output being so great that a branch
of one of the major railroads of this state was extended to the
mining district. A few years ago several of the mines being
dug too deeply, struck underground springs and were flooded.
Thus the iron production was discontinued.
The natural beauty and magnificence of the surrounding
country is inspiring and is the constant theme of poets and
writers. Beneath the hill on which the cabin stands lie the
somber waters of Laurel Lake. Towering above the lake with
the majestic grandeur stands Pole's Steeple, crowning the
heights of the wooded slope which surrounds it. In the hills in
the vicinity of the lodge is situated an immense group of
boulders which form the apex to a mountain of no mean
height. This is recognized by the National Geological Asso-
ciation as one of nature's works of art and is appropriately
called Hammondls Rocks.
Osoga Lodge is situated on a bluff overlooking Lake Laurel.
Its commanding position demands the attention of all passers-by.
It is built upon the style of a Swiss chalet though the native
architecture is outstanding through the fact that it was erected
with logs cut from the surrounding forests. The cabin is a
rather large building painstakingly constructed to Ht the needs
for which it was planned. As one approaches the Lodge one
notices the distinction of the wide roof and broad porches
which surmount it. As one enters he is immediately conscious
of the keynote of its formation-expansiveness. The large
center room which is used for a dining hall, a living room, and
a sleeping room is set off by a massive stone fireplace fClass
,3I gifrj while above is a sleeping balcony. There is a kitchen
in the rear of the cabin which is considered to be the most
important room by many.
Before school starts, football camp opens under the direc-
tion of Coach C. R. Wolfe and extends up to the time when
school is about to begin in the autumn. Stiff workouts are
given the players before their 'final debut on the gridiron. If
one might be there some cool autumn morning he would per-
haps see "Hips' boysy' doing Poleas Steeple or pounding the
road toward town.
Later the week-end camp opens and a certain number of the
students are allowed to go there accompanied by a master who
cooks the food, gets the water, etc., etc. Nlany hikes are made
by the fellows, one of the best being to Tumbling Run, a dis-
tance of about seven miles. Another to Hammond,s Rocks,
which leads through mountain trails especially beautiful in
autumn, to the summit of a veritable castle of stone surmount-
ing a precipitous ridge. For those who like canoeing there is
Laurel Lake and a decent sized canoe at request. In back of
the camp is the State Forest Reservation and at times nearing
dusk many diminutive deer will steal out into the clearing in
which the camp is situated. Those who like swimming should
go to Fuller,s Lake, formerly an abandoned mine, which serves
its purpose to the greatest extent.

"Poughkeepsie . . . bellowed the porter of the New York
Central Express. "Poughkeepsie.w He shouted again, at the
same time peering through the blue haze of the smoker.
mAh, heyah you is sah,', he exclaimed, eagerly waking the
bewhiskered man with the brown derby out of a sound sleep.
"I-Ieyah you is. This hcyah is Poughkeepsie, sah. Ainit that
wha you git off, sah?"
The bewhiskered man grunted disgustedly.
"No, you fool, I get og at Hudson. Get out of here."
Across the aisle four men were playing a hand of poker and
sympathetically observing the incident.
"These porters certainly do take the cake for being foolsf'
snorted the drummer. Ushow me a better example of Mr.
Fool A-I and I'lI eat my shoes."
"Oh, I don't know," mused the college man, "Ir all depends
upon a man's viewpoint. Now do you fellows really know
what a fool is?U
"Do I . . U burst in the drummer indignantly. "Well, say,
if it werenit for fools, whereid I be . . If I didn't know a fool
when I saw him, how could I rake in a 200 per cent profit on
this stuff I'm selling? Yes sir, you bet, I know a foolf,
The man of leisure lit a twenty-five cent cigar and did not
offer his companions a smoke.
l'Yes, Iive seen a fool, too,', he said. 'QI know a man who
is rich. Yet he works day in and day out, accumulating money
he never enjoys. That man is a fool.',
"Wal,', remarked the farmer, reflectively, spitting out of the
window, "reckon I know what a fool is, tew. Last time I was
in town, one of them there gold-brick fellows tried to catch
me up on one of his bunco games. But I wanit no fool, by
gosh. . 'i
The college man smiled.
Q'Gentlemen,', he said, gif you will allow me, I will tell a
little story. Ir is of a fool I once knew. The tale is old but
a true one, and it may be that you never heard of just this kind
of a fool.
"It was several years ago that the incident occurred, although
I can remember it as though it were yesterday. It was at old
Columbia. I know the story as an eye witness.
uThe Fool, for as such he had earned his name, was a great,
mammoth, awkward, young giant. He was a titan, a perfect
mountain of solid beef and musclegbut that was all. He was
a physical perfection, but further than that, he had achieved
nothing. Studies? Oh, yes, he was well in his studies.
Fools often are, you know, -strangely inconsistent. But,
nevertheless, he had no head. You see, he was a fool. He
could not enter the frats. He was not disagreeable, but taci-
turn-odd. He desired no company but his own.
"The coaches, however, could not behold two hundred pounds
of solid muscular energy lying idle without dreaming of the
possibilities of such energy. He was urged to try out for the
various athletics. This, probably, in response to the yearnings
of the great forces within him, he agreed to do. He tried
baseball. You can imagine the result. When at bat, he could
not hit a ball without sending it crashing through the fence,-
but he had no judgment, and could seldom hit it. He was
too lazy to run bases. He was never known to catch a fly.
In fact, his baseball career expired, in a tremendous burst of
misspent energy within six days. The track meet called for
followers. The giant dreamily listened and replied. But his
great, inherent laziness barred him absolutely, and he turned
for new opportunities to prove the power of his superhuman
strength. The coach of the crew received him with open arms:
but soon dismissed him in a temper. The Fool, ever faithful
to his name, confidently ignored orders, snapped oars, and
swamped the boat at least every other time. No, as a member
of the crew, he was not a success. Then came football. By
this time his ill-fame as an athlete had reached all the coaches.
Yet, his splendid physique could not be overlooked, and he was
begged to try out. He did so. The coaches groaned often
and feelingly. The big fellow seemed absolutely incapable of
grasping the plays. He knew, always and forever, just the
wrong thing to do at the wrong time-and he always did it.
Still, for the sake of his powerful shoulders and two hundred
pounds of iron sinews, the coach was tempted. And so the
Fool, in spite of himself, became an athlete, and joined the
ranks of the gridiron as a substitute.
"The football season was a glorious one for Columbia.
Victory followed victory that year. The whole university was
wild with enthusiasm. The football warriors were heroes, and
even The Fool, who had not engaged in a single game, outside
of the scrub issues, was held in good natured tolerance. Brint-
son alone, now disputed Columbiaas right to the championship.
uThe day of the great game arrived. The home city was
hlled with the supporters of Brinston, automobiles and train-
loads arriving in steady streams. The populace was rife with
football zeal. Never before in football history had such in-
tense excitement been known. Each side was absolutely and
19-M -------------- - o s o G A -------------- ""t34
unwaveringly confident of success. Speculators took advantage
and fortunes were wagered.
l'In the forenoon, The Fool, apparently the least concerned
of all, strode lonely and silently as was his wont, across the
campus. Reaching the opposite side, he gazed about him in
the hope of finding an unoccupied bench. Such, however,
could not be. The campus was teeming with life. All benches
were occupied. The bench nearest him, however, held but one
person, an elderly lady, dressed in black. Her face was pleas-
ant, but deeply furrowed and unnaturally sorrowful. Ar the
furthest end of this bench, the Columbian seated himself and
gazed gloomily into space. To his surprise and annoyance,
the lady addressed him.
M 'Excuse me, sirf she began timidly, 'but you appear to be
a student. Will you please tell me what side you think will
win this game?'
" 'Columbiaf replied The Fool, briefly.
Y' 'Oh, it mustnitf faltered the woman. 'It mustn't. What
will I do?'
"'Don't know mam,' said The Fool, his wonder getting the
best of him. 'In trouble?'
uAnd then the woman, as is the way of all who bear the
burden of a grief unshared, burst into tears and sobbed out
the story that she had known alone too long, thankful to have
found at last a person who appeared to sympathize.
'QIt was pitiful, little tale that he listened to. The poor
woman, it seemed was a widow. Of all the world's millions,
she had but one to care for and to care for her. This was her
son. To her, the boy was everything and when it became ap-
parent that journalism was his forte, she desperately resolved
that he should have a college education, poor though they were.
Then came several long, weary years of hard, pitiless work for
the boy, unselfish sacrifice and self-denial by the mother, and
miserable pinchings for them both. But the money was finally
saved and the boy fairly started on his career at Brinston
University. With great economy, he would be able to com-
plete the four years' course. Everything seemed bright untill-
the thing happened. The boy was captain of the Brinston
football team and of all its supporters the most zealous and
confident. For him Brinston was supreme. There was no
chance for defeat. Loudly he had proclaimed his faith. All
knew of it. Yell leaders took him for a model of school
spirit. He infused his team with the violence of it. A week
before the Columbia-Brinston game came the crisis. He met
at last a man who dared to declare in his face that Columbia's
team was superior. Drunk with the excitement of argument,
the foolish boy wagered his entire fortune on the outcome of
the game. The Columbia man was wealthy and greedy. A
less excited person held the notes. The act was done before
a considerable number of the students. Before the eyes of
honor, the wager was binding. Not once had the confident
captain of the Brinstons felt a tinge of regret. For him it was
a sure investment. His fortune would be doubled. He knew.
But the widowed mother was not blinded by the artificial wis-
dom of enthusiasm. She alone knew the tortures of doubt.
She thought of the consequences of the loss of their little
earnings, saw her boy forced from college, beheld him strug-
gling in the world without the education that could alone bring
him success, tasted the bitter scorn of those who would sneer
and say, 'There is a fellow who might have had a career had
he not gambled it awayf Yes, she, the mother, thought of
all these things. She knew.
"To this grieved woman, The Fool listened as in a trance.
His great face at first passive, became soft with the tenderness
that the lonesome giant seldom felt. just the faintest trace
of tears was in his eyes. just the faintest trace of a tremble
was in his voice as he spoke.
" 'Madam,7 he said, KI had a mother-once. I have feelings
and sympathy-but-' and here he stiffly rose from the bench,
'after all, what is the use? I cannot help you. In fact, I
can not even hope that Brinston will win. You see I play on
the Columbia team.'
"Then coldly and without even a glance backward, the huge
Columbian strode away. But the widowis tale had somehow
sunk deeply, for you see-he was a fool.
"The widow gazed after him, torn by two emotions. She
was warmed by the evident sympathy of his first words and
chilled to the heart by the cold revelation of his last, that he
was actually a member of the team, that could cause her so
much sorrow. And through it all she did not know that-he
was a fool.
'lThe huge amphitheatre had never presented a more won-
derful and impressive spectacle. The Blue and Gold of
Columbia was flaring forth definace across the gridiron to the
Orange and Black of Brinston. Cheers were echoing and re-
echoing. The great game of the year, of football history,
Q'For the first three quarters of the game the two teams had
battled for supremacy by all the will and strategy known to
the greatest football players that ever graced cleats. Such
playing had never been seen before. As yet neither side had
been able to make a single score.
'lThe vast crowds were hushed in expectancy when the
whistle blew, announcing the beginning of the fourth quarter.
With the score even and both sides now positively crazed by
the desire for victory, something was sure to occur. Then hap-
pened the thing that the Columbian supporters were most
praying against. Travers, the mighty captain of Columbia,
the hero of the season, did not get up after a particularly
fierce tackle, and when he did not get up after five, ten, and
hfteen minutes, the stands groaned aloud. For who was there
to go in, with the two regular 'subsi incapacitated, one from
injury and the other from scholarship. Ar no time during the
game had things looked darker for the Blue and Gold.
"Then, while the thousands of people wagered the chances
of the various candidates getting into the game, wonder turned
to amazement, and amazement to speechless paroxysms of
despair, as amid deathlike silence The Fool, The Fool, above
all persons, lurched lazily forward and made his way with
uneven steps far down to the end of the field where the
Columbians were gathered rallying for the last desperate stand.
He was acknowledged by a curt nod from the rest of the
players, but from Talbott, acting captain, he received one
"The game was again on. The Fool plunged into the com-
bat. He, The Fool, took the position of Travers, the mighty
football hero of Columbia. Loud were the murmurs unfounded,
for The Fool was loyal to his title. The action had scarcely
started, when he blundered, deeply and uselessly as was his
way. The quarterback of Brinston drop-kicked the ball over
Columbia had been
the cross for the Hrst score of the game.
scored against. The grandstands united in one mighty roar
of protest. The Fool was houted at and hissed.
"And then it happened, No one knew it, neither the stands
nor The Fool. But it did. The taunts of the grandstands
had somehow awakened something else in him besides the fool
of him. Something in him was to be set loose that had never
been so before. It now only awaited the opportunity.
"The Brinstons, flushed with the triumph of the newly ac-
quired score, were pushing themselves steadily to their oppo-
nents, goal line. Ir seemed as though nothing could stop their
terrific hammering charges. Around the end came the phalanx,
well bunched and with a desperate light in their eyes. When,
with a mighty upheaval and crash, the wedge was broken, the
interference bowled out of the way and the runner hurled back
for a loss of five yards. People in the stands rubbed their
eyes and wondered. What was this? Was Travers back on
the field? This time would tell, as again the flying wedge
started intent on skirting the other wing, but again as before
they were met by a human whirlwind, a huge red-eyed being,
with a battering ram for a head, and a body of steel whip-cord.
Again was the phalanx broken and scattered, and again was
the runner thrown for a loss as with a fierce tackle, The Fool
brought down the Brinston. The Fool had come to his own. . .
19 AQA- -1- ------------- o s o G A -------------- ---34
Then followed the most wonderful exhibition of one-man
football as had ever been seen before. The stands had never
been in such a wild frenzy of excitement, and shouted them-
selves hoarse, where before had been only disgust and despair.
Truly The Fool was showing himself a perfect master of
football. Not even the great Travers had been known to make
such wonderful plays. Three minutes only now remained of
the game and the Columbia supporters were calling, pleading,
begging, for a touchdown. The Fool heard. The signals for
Columbia were given. Straight as an arrow came the ball
back to the half, who, holding it for a punt, seemed suddenly
to change his mind and prepare for a pass, drawing back his
arm. Even as he did so, The Fool, with action displayed in
every fibre of his body snatched the ball from the halfback
and tucking it under his arm dashed down the rough and
broken field. Tackler after tackler was hurled aside by that
dread, straight arm that never failed to clear a path. The
stands went wild. A touchdown seemed imminent now.
Columbia would win. Nearer and nearer The Fool came,
gaining momentum at every stride, shaking of man after man
until there was but one man between him and the coveted
chalk line. The captain and quarterback, for such it was, cast
a hurried look of despair about him and seeing no other man
to help him, gave an exclamation of dismay. But gathering
all the forces at his command he braced himself to meet the
impact. Small benefit was the preparation though, for The
Fool was not to be stopped by anything human now. He
crashed into the quarterback with one mighty plunge that left
the Brinston a huddled hgure on the field.
"Away sped the giant form with the ball tucked under his
arm. The goal . . The goal . . . He would reach it now.
Nothing could stop him. The great audience sprang to its
feet. Hats were in the air. Strangers slapped each other on
the back. The whole vast assembly made the grandstands fairly
rock and the very earth quiver with one mighty roar of ex-
citement. The Fool . . . Ah, where was the fool of him
now . . Thirty-five thousand souls were proclaiming him im-
l'But five yards now to the goal . . The once fool with
triumphant features, plunged on. The hero of the moment
heard the roars of approval, heard the cheers that rose in
mighty crescendoes, and -- a shrill, pitiful scream from a
front box where a woman sat with blanched, horror-stricken
face, and who did not know the glory of a wonderful victory.
He, who was about to snatch a glorious victory that would
idolize him forever, had heard that voice before somewhere-
somewhere on the campus, sitting beside a motherly old lady.
He had also heard a woman's story.
l'Five yards more... And the atmosphere was being
rent with thirty-five thousand cheers for the wonder of him.
But five yards more . . . And the huge, human tornado ap-
peared to stumble and fall. The ball rolled, unheeded, to the
sidelines. The fool of him had returned.
"A silence, the dead, terrible silence of the nonunderstand-
ing fell upon the multitude. What was this? Did they really
see this? Five yards only to the goal of a great victory and
the man actually falling in a stupid heap. No, it could not
be, It was incredible. Suddenly, as the fallen man arose, the
shrill blast of a whistle cut the silence like a knife. The game
was over .... Columbia had lost. Then, the mammoth
audience awoke to the significance of it all. Yells of anger
and scornful derision broke forth. Pandemonium spread over
the grandstands and the field. Thousands lifted up their voices
in cursing him.
"For a moment The Fool stood there. For a moment he
stood there gazing upon the sea of wrathful faces, listening to
the groans and hoots that were heralding for him disrepute
for life . . . He lifted his great, good-natured visage to the
skies in despair .... Then the fool of him mastered the rest
of him forever, and he smiled-deliberately smiled, and strode
calmly from the fieldf'

TI-IE MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE AT GETTYSBURG
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
President Franklin D. Roosevelt became the ninth president
to speak at the Memorial Day service at Gettysburg. Speak-
ing from almost the same spot as Lincoln, he delivered what is
considered by many to be the best of all the Memorial Day
speeches. He paid reverence to those who had fought and died
here so that the nation might live.
Mr. Roosevelt is the first Democratic president to speak at
Gettysburg since Woodrow Wilson. He, in coming to Get-
tysburg, followed an example set by President McKinley.
Since McKinley, every president has spoken at Gettysburg.
Lincoln was the first president to speak here. About twenty-
five years ago, it was decided that it would be a fitting thing to
carry on this precedent and have the presidents speak at Me-
morial Day services at Gettysburg.
A record breaking crowd gathered to hear Mr. Roosevelt pay
tribute to those who had made the supreme sacrifice. At the
service at the National Cemetery, first the crowd was led in
the singing of America, then a prayer was offered. Following
this, Lincoln,s Gettysburg Address was read. Mr. Roosevelt's
stirring address followed this reading. The service was closed
by the benediction.
An elaborate parade preceded President Roosevelt,s address.
This was probably the greatest parade Gettysburg has seen in
many years. The parade was strictly military and carried the
minds of many back to the days of encampment at Gettysburg.
The parade left the square and proceeded directly to the
National Cemetery where the service was held.
First in the parade came the President who had motored
from Washington that morning. He was followed by some of
the fast dwindling ranks of those who took part in the Civil
War. There were also a very few of those who had heard
Lincoln in 1863. These few were honored by being invited to
sit on the platform with Mr. Roosevelt.
The entire Carlisle Medical Corps, which attended the serv-
ice in a body, was next in line. They were followed by a
detachment of Pennsylvania National Guard led by Lieutenant
Governor Shannon. These splendidly drilled groups were
followed by many battalions of the Sons of Veterans of For-
eign Wars. Following this was a large group of Spanish-
American War Veterans, who had gathered from all over
Pennsylvania to march in the parade. Many American Legion
posts had gathered to help pay tribute to Roosevelt and to the
heroes who fell here during the battle. With them they
brought their drum and fife corps, who were also in the
parade. A service band, considered by many to be the best
ever heard in Gettysburg, was also in attendance.
While the parade was starting and, during the parade, army
and navy planes flew over the cemetery and dropped flowers on
the graves of the dead at Gettysburg.
Following a custom of recent years, the school children of
Gettysburg assembled at the center of the cemetery immediately
following the parade. From here they walked slowly down
over the graves and quietly dropped a flower on each as they
passed. This, while it was one of the simplest parts of the
whole ceremony, was undoubtedly the most impressive.
After the conclusion of the service at the cemetery, the
parade slowly made its way back to the square where it broke
up and disbanded. Thus ended another of Gettysburg's beau-
tiful Memorial Day observances, It is particularly fitting that
each year, on the day set aside in remembrance of those who
risked their lives for the nation, that Gettysburg, where so
many died, should have such a beautiful service.
This day will linger long in the minds of the class of 'l34".
Some of us have heard many speeches and seen many celebra-
tions, but this simple beautiful service will remain in our
memories as the best. A great deal of credit must be paid to
the chairman of the Memorial Day Committee, Edward F.
Strausbaugh, who worked hard and unselfishly to make the day

On November the 19th, 1863, an individual, dressed in ill-
Fitting clothes, who was then President of our land, journeyed
to Gettysburg to dedicate a plot of ground made sacred by the
blood of a divided nation. Abraham Lincoln, on that day,
became the prophet of a new era.
Now on November 19th, 1933, people flocked from all parts
of the country to pay homage to the great emancipator. It
was an auspicious occasion with the many war veterans, drum
corps, and prominent speakers marching in group form to our
On precisely the same spot where Lincoln himself stood,
there was a large platform with such luminaries as: Robert
Lincoln Beckwith, great grandson of the martyred Lincoln,
George Gordon Meade, grandson of General Meade, com-
mander of the Union troops, Colonel Ulysses S. Grant, grand-
son of General and President U. S. Grant, Dr. George Boling
Lee, grandson of General Robert E. Lee, Dr. Lincoln Caswell,
hailed as the greatest impersonator of Lincoln, and many others.
Dr. Lincoln Caswell, dressed in typical Lincoln style, recited
in a typically Lincolnesque fashion, the Emancipatorls Gettys-
burg Address. Rugged and bearded, speaking with a slow,
deep, and strong voice, Dr. Caswell was highly dramatic and
stirred the audience deeply. People who were not present
listened to the program over the radio on a nation-wide hook-up.
News reel companies made recordings which were shown on
the screen all over the country.

For many years it has been the custom at Gettysburg
Academy to have a course of lectures which are sponsored by
Gettysburg College. This year, while perhaps there have
not been as many as there have been in former years, they
have been just as line as any series ever held in Gettysburg.
The first lecture was delivered November 17, 1933, by C.
William Duncan, who is a graduate of Gettysburg Academy
in the class of 1913. Mr. Duncan, now a columnist for the
Philadelphia Evening Ledger, spoke on the subject, "Some of
My Interviews with Prominent Peoplef' In his lecture Mr.
Duncan gave many interesting and some amusing sidelights
on the lives and habits of the people who are in the news at
the present time.
Nlajor Leon Dabo, famous artist and lecturer, delivered the
second lecture of the year on January 19, 1934. He chose
as his subject, "The Place of Art in Life." In his lecture
Major Dabo showed how everything about us in the world
that is fine and beautiful is art. He pointed out that most
people believe that only a painting can be called art and then
showed that any profession which requires skill and perfection
of execution can be called art.
The third lecture of the series was given on March 19,
1934, when Major James Sawders delivered a most interest-
ing and educational lecture on the subject "Ancient Civiliza-
tion of the Americasf' Major Sawders said that the people
of the Americas were immigrants. He then traced the de-
velopment and progress in civilization and said that the peak
of early American civilization was reached by the Incas.
Major Sawders has spoken in Gettysburg before, but this
lecture served to increase his popularity with the students.

THE CLASS PROPHECY
The twenty-fifth reunion of the class of "34" was held
June 15, 1959. It was very successful for twenty out of the
thirty-two members of the class were present. All the ab-
sentees were accounted for with the exception of 'lBob,' Frost.
If anyone knows what happened to him please get in touch
with any member of the class of u34.u
The reunion was held in Gettysburg with the Hotel Adams
as headquarters. This hotel is owned and operated by our
old pal, Bill Rupp. It might be well to say that the grand
banquet was held at the famous Gettysburg 'thot spotu, the
Cotton Club. Here we were greeted by the familiar face-A
it was none other than our old friend Tonner. He was serv-
ing up the famous "Cotton Club Speciali' from behind the
bar. Bill Pitts and his blue devils supplied the music.
There were certainly some surprises in store for those who
attended the gathering. We learned that George Hocker is
teaching Trig at the exclusive Oakmount School. Well, well,
we never thought that of George, "BudH Bradshaw is the
head of a nation-wide advertising concern. His latest piece
of work was putting the private school back on the map.
We had quite a shock when we learned the fate of one
of our classmates. The Reverend William Hollis told us that
'QBig joe" Carvano was none other than Banks Sieber. We
all knew, of course, that 'lBig Joel' died of a case of lead
poisoning. Bill also told us that he had ofliciated at the
service and that "Recls,' Hurst had acted as undertaker.
We, of course, knew that Joe Lotito was at the head of
the "Blackshirts" in the United States. It was too bad that
he could not attend. We had a hard time getting Fred
Overdorf to tell us what he was doing. Finally he confessed

that he was writing the "Loverys Lament' column for the
New York Times. Well, Fred, we knew that you were always
in love, but we didn't think it would come to this.
The first thing Harold Hockman did was try to sell us
something which is supposed to take the gold out of goldfish.
Ir seems that he is selling his brother Bruce's inventions.
We noticed that our classmate, l'Bunky" Wagner, seemed
disturbed about something. It seemed that one of his mis-
takes the is Dr. R. Barrick Wagner nowj was on none other
than our promising classmate, Schiebel.
Sam Campbell furnished the entire convention with some
of his prize apples. Yes, boys, he is none other than the
farmer who has become famous for his apples. Sam told us
that Wally McNiel is running a restaurant in Tyrone, and
that it is famous for its hamburgers.
Now we turn with pride to the man who is telling the
president what to do. Yes, it is Pete Graff who is the
ubrainsi' behind the great Republican machine. Pete was
instrumental in getting Steve Sneeringer his position at the
head of the P. M. D. A., which is the modern C. W. A.,
which give S75o,ooo,ooo annually to the unemployed.
We also discovered a quarrel among us. "Tut,' Moore

became angry at Burton Brush after being arrested for the
second time. He says that Police Officer Brush is trying to
wreck his taxicab business. Herb Patterson, who is with the
Ford Company, told us that George Longanecker has a service
station in California, and that he has exclusive rights for the
Ford Company in that district.
Bob Yevak could not be at the convention because he could
not leave his team. Bob is playing for the Boston Red Sox.
We were also sorry that H. Campbell could not be there to
thrill us with his stories of his experiences in the oil fields of
South America. However, Art Fogel, who is ace pilot for
the army air service, told us of his experiences while flying
We learned that Joe Hildebrand is dropping a lot of money
on the ponies. Better lay off, Joe, you always were a bum
guesser. We had with us Eddie Fasold, the manager of that
famous wrestler, 'QReds,' Lehner, who retired from the ring
several years ago. He told us that Bill Utz is a postman in
New York. We regretted that his duties as Petty Officer at
Hawaii kept Bill Phelps from joining us. He wrote that

The reunion was adjourned on the night of the 17th after
which we all went our many ways. This reunion was one
of the most successful of all G. A. reunions. As I mentioned
