Edward Swoyer Breidenbaugh was born january 13, 1849, at
Newville, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. ln 1849 his parents

pastor of the Lutheran Church. Aside from attending the public
schools at Greencastle, Dr. Breidenbaugh was tutored by his
father, who prepared him for college.
At the age of 15, in 1864, he entered Pennsylvania College.
His faithful work in college was an index to his pronounced
achievements in later life. During his college career he became
affiliated with the Philomathean Literary Society and the 111 If A
Fraternity. Dr. Breidenbaugh graduated with the Class of '68.
dividing fourth honor with the late Rev. Prof. I. VV. Richard,
D. D., of Gettysburg Seminary.
ln the collegiate year 1868-1869, he served as tutor in Stevens
Hall, then under the principalship of Rev. Prof. C. I. Ehrhart,
'50. ln the autumn of 1869 he entered Gettysburg Theological
Seminary, wh-ere he continued his studies for two years. At this
time a serious throat trouble developed, which caused an abrupt
change in the plans for his life work.
He determined to enter the field of Natural Science, and
accordingly became a student at the Sheffield Scientific School of
Yale University, where he pursued his studies until 1873. His
career at Yale was exceptionally creditable, and his devotion to
his work soon attracted the attention of his teachers. At the end
of his first year he was honored by an instructorship at Yale,
which position he continued to occupy while connected with that
At the completion of his course at Yale. Dr. Breidenbaugh
accepted the Professorship of the Physical and Natural Sciences
at Carthage College, lllinois. His work here was destined to be
short. for in june, 1874, he was compelled to resign his position
owing to failing health. He recuperated and, in 1876, he entered
the Faculty of Pennsylvania College, and has continued to be one
of its most prominent members ever since.
Cn November 20, 1874, Dr. Breidenbaugh was married to
Miss lda Kitzmiller of Philadelphia.
When Dr, Breidenbaugh came to Gettysburg he became the
hrst incumbent of the "Conrad Professorship of Chemistry and
Mineralogy" created by the Board of Trustees upon the resigna-
tion of Prof. S, P. Sadtler, Ph. D., '67, from the chair of Physical
Sciences. At the meeting of the Board in 1881, an adjustment
of studies was made, and Physics was united with this department
under the title "The Ockerhausen Professorship of Physical
Sciences." The chair remained the same until 1907, when a
separate Professorship of Physics was created. Dr. Breiden-
baugh's department then became known as the Oclcerhausen Pro-
fessorship of Chemistry and Mineralogy and has been such since
Under the able direction of Dr. Breidenbaugh this depart-
ment has grown wonderfully. Wlith its increase in equipment
and instructors it has become one of the strongest and best regu-
lated departments of the College. The courses offered by Dr.
Breidenbaugh cover such a wide range. that to meet the need,
created by the rapid increase in the number of students taking
advantage of the courses, more instructors have become neces-
sary. At present Dr. Breidenbaugh is very ably assisted by Mr.
C. B. Stover, A.. M.. FQ4, and Mr. J. A. Dickson, A. B.. 305.
Through the inliuence of Dr. Breidenbaugh the Sciences in
late years were given more attention at Gettysburg. and it was
largely the result of his efforts that a regular scientihc course of
four years, leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science, was
introduced in 1888.
Dr. Breidenbaugh is the author of a number of scientific
works and has made valuable contributions to numerous scientific
His devotion to his work and to the best interests of the
College have made him a very prominent personage about the
institution. His strong personality, and excellent qualities of
mind and heart have won him many friends. As a senior mem-
ber of the Faculty he has always taken a keen personal interest
in every student and we are exceptionally fortunate in having
him as a worthy friend and noble example.
O the Faculty. students and friends of Gettysburg, it now
becomes our privilege to present this volume. Another
year in the history of our institution has massed, and to the Class
of 1911 fell the duty of recording the events of that year. A
duty perhaps it was. yet in many ways a privilege as well, for to
record a chapter in the history of one's College is indeed an
honor. Our task has been variedg sometimes burdensome, some-
times pleasant. However, the fact that our labors were for the
interests of Gettysburg has always been an incentive to do our
Work cheerfully. I
, 'We feel that in some ways, this book is inferior to those of
preceding classes. For this we make no apology, but merely wish
to state conditions as they exist and ask that you pass judgment
upon us with an unbiased mind. VVhen you have considered the
facts we feel sure your criticism will not be harsh.
In late years the classes of Gettysburg have published annuals
equal and in some instances superior to those of many universi-
VVhile We heartily believe that Gettysburg is Worthy of the
very best her students can produce, we question whether this is
In our case We have acted accordingly. The Class of 1911
is in many ways a peculiar class. As Freshmen We entered Get-
tysburg With a class numbering nearly seventy. At the end of
our Freshman and Sophomore years we lost many of our num-
ber, some of whom discontinued school work altogether, while
many went to other colleges and universities to finish their col-
legiate work. so that at present the Class of 1911 is by far the
smallest in College, our total number being but little more than
half as great as that of preceding classes in late years. For this
reason we have deemed it unwise for us to attempt to publish a
Spectrum as elaborate as those published heretofore. lfVe- have
made some extensive changes. Wfe have reduced the size of the
volume materially, but assure you that upon examination you will
find as broad a portrayal of college life as was contained in the
books of other classes.
Vtfe have also been unfortunate in being unable to secure as
many advertisements as former classes. These facts have led us
to our decision and in passing judgment upon us, we ask that you
will be guided by them.
To portray simply, truthfully and with understanding the
various activities of college life has been our aim. VVe have
painted all phases of college life as we saw them, and to all We
have tried to be fair and impartial. Wlietlier or not we have
succeeded must be left for you to judge.
We take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks! to all

The Academic Year.
BY PROFESSOR G.
The past year has been one of quiet and profitable industry.
The academic machinery has been running smoothly.
The work of the various departments has been sedulously
prosecuted on their accustomed lines, no special new features
having been added during the past year. The various courses, as
arranged, meet well the requirements of our student body, and
appreciation and good work have been secured.
The position of the "College Y. M. C. A. Secretary and Can-
vasser for Students" having become vacant last year by the
resignation of Rev. Geo. VV. Nicely, ,O2-, the Board appointed in
his place Rev. Herbert A. Rinard, '03, who has creditably dis-
charged the duties of the position during the past year.
At the annual meeting of the College Alumni Association last
Commencement week, a movement was inaugurated to secure the
services, of Mr. Fred C. Vail, as an all-year coach. Sufficient
subscriptions were secured to make it seem justifiable to enter
into an engagement with Mr. Vail. which was accordingly done,
and the student body has enjoyed his stimulating companionship
and training during the past year. lt is hoped that Coach Vai'l's.
services may be continued, but under appointment by fl1CQBCJ2!1fhli
so as to give his position official recognition. '
Tn these days of revolt against the excesses of the "elective
systemu in college studies, we are proud to maintain that no
abuses on this line have ever occurred at Gettysburg. A well-
arranged required course has always been the rule, and when
electives were introduced in 1891, the new departure allowed for
only a few electives in the junior and Senior years. Such an
amount of election has been found to work well, and has enabled
distinctly preliminary preparation for their prospective voca-
The revision of our curriculum, which is now under consid-
eration, will follow out the idea of the so-called "group system",
and will still further advantage the student in systeniatizing his
college course, and in giving him the best results for his labors.
The one defect in the unrestricted elective privilege will be cut
out,-that is, no student will be at liberty to make irrelevant
selections, based perhaps on his unwillingness to choose difficult
subjects. All the groups arranged for in the new curriculum will
be properly educational, and -hence sufhciently difficult to elicit
earnest endeavor and useful mental discipline. This new cur-
riculum will materially advance our educational status, as it will
give greater opportunity for more advanced teaching in each of
the subjects pursuedg this, together with the raising of our
entrance requirements, which the Board has ordered to go into
effect one year hence, will put us on a higher plan-e in college
work, than we have hitherto attained. This advance will be on
a line with the activities of the College since its inception, its
STA HLEY, NI. D.
motto has always been-from good to better and from better
That very pleasing and essential part of the activities of a
college commonwealth, known as "student interests", has been
well maintained during the past year. There have been plenty
of athletics, musical diversions, social functions, etc., to keep the
mildew from the student mind and the green grass from growing
too luxuriously under his feet. The "regulative" idea in regard
to diversions, which the Faculty are strenuously endeavoring to
cultivate, is sometimes severely put to the test, but, considering
the innate difficulties in the case, we are warranted in saying
that "student interestsf' are kept Well within reasonable bounds.
and to the all-around advantage of the student body. Gettysburg
College is not in the business of raising either prudes, ascetics
or grinds, and hence we make no apologies.
The idea of "student government" has recently become
somewhat popular on the campus. A movement is now on foot
looking towards this end, and the Faculty has endorsed the upre-
liminary effort" on this line. lt is hoped that the student body
has a clear idea as to what "student government" involves.
There is a serious responsibility connected with such an enter-
prise. It means that the students shall be willing to do police
Work and grand jury work, as well as petit jury Work. Such
vigilance should extend to every detail of the college life, and
each student should feel that he is personally responsible for the
honorable conduct of both himself and his neighbor. Our stu-
dents are capable of carrying out such a high purpose, and if
they should unanimously agree to do so, it is probable that the
Board would not be unwilling to institute "student government."
The maintenance of discipline during the past year has not
been onerous. Volatile youth will have its outbursts now and
then, but seldom does disorder become vicious. Rightly appre-
ciating the purpose of college discipline to be corrective, rather
than punitive, the measures adopted during the year have been
severe enough to impress, but not to crush, and the results have
justified the procedure. Good behavior has been the rule, and
genial intercourse between teacher and taught has prevailed.
Dr. S. G. Hefelbower having resigned the Presidency of the
College at a special mid-winter meeting ,of the Board of Trustees,
we are now all anxiously awaiting Board action in the selection
of his successor. The position is one that carries with it great
honor and grave responsibilities. Wie have contidencc that the
Trustees will move slowly and decide wisely. There are great
and varied interests to consider and conserve in the proper con-
duct of a successful American college, and its executive head
has responsible and onerous duties to perform.

Graeff Professorship of the English Language and Literature
In 1864 the Graeff Professorship' of the English Language
and Literature was endowed. Up to this time, the course in
English had been placed in the hands of the Greek professor, in
connection with his other duties. Now a separate chair was
created, thus greatly enlarging the course. After Dr. I. B. Bet-
tinger, and later, the Reverend C. A. Stork, had been elected to
fill the chair of English, and had declined, the position was finally
filled by Prof. Edsall Ferrier, who was elected to the chair in
1866. After five years of faithful work and encouraging progress,
Professor Ferrier resigned, and in his place, Dr. I-limes was ap-
pointed as acting professor of the English Language.
Iohn Andrew Him-es was graduated from Gettysburg College
in 1870 with the Latin Salutatory, and the following year he was
a member of the graduating class at Yale. In I873, the Board
was fortunate in securing his services as Professor of the En-
glish Language. He received the degree of L. H. D. from Dick-
inson College in 1898. He has published several scholarly Works
on Milton, and many interesting articles relating to his depart-
ment. Dr. Himes is a member of the Philornathean and the Pen
and Sword Societies.
Mr. Harold S. Lewars was appointed as assistant in the En-
glish department in 1907. Mr. Lewars was a member of the IQO3
class at Gettysburg. K
MR. STOVER DR. BREIDENBAUGH
Ockerhausen Professorship of Chemistry and Mineralogy
The Ockerhausen Professorship of Natural Sciences was
established in 1864. Among the five original professorships of
Pennsylvania College were the Professorship of Natural Phil-
osophy, Chemistry, and Mathematics and the Professorship of
Mineralogy and Botany. The incumbent of the former Professor-
ship was Rev. M. Jacobs, who formerly had charge of the scien-
tiiic department of the Gettysburg Gymnasium. Rev. I. M. Mars-
den, of the Female Seminary, held the latter professorship. The
creation of the Ockerhausen Professorship brought about a re-
arrangement of courses. Chemistry and Physics were then united,
forming a new chair, which was occupied by Prof. A. N. Mayer.
On his resignation in 1867, Rev. V. S. Conrad was elected his
successor. Rev. Conrad, serving only three years, was succeeded
by S. P. Sadtler, Ph. D., who at the time of his election, was
pursuing special courses in Germany and could not at once fill
the position. After his resignation, three years later, it was
decided to divide the department of Natural Sciences. The
Ockerhausen Professorship then became the chair' of Physics and
Astronomy, and the Conrad Professorship- of Chemistry and
Mineralogy was established as a new department in charge of
Prof. E. S. Breidenbaugh, A. M. In 1881, Physics was trans-
ferred to this department, which has since then been called the
Ockerhausen Professorship. It continued unchanged until 1907,
when a separate Professorship of Physics was established. Over-
coming many difficulties by untiring efforts, Dr. Breidenbaugh
has made this one of the strongest departments in the institu-
tion. Two assistants, Mr. C. B. Stover, A. M., and Mr. J. A.
Dickson, A. B., now assist him in his work.
Pearson Professorship of the Latin Language and
The College started with five professorships, one of these
being the Professorship of the Latin Language and German. Dr.
Hazelius of the Seminary consented to take temporary charge of
this department until the chair could be filled, and in 1834 the
Rev, Wifi. M. Reynolds was elected to this position. After is
faithful service of sixteen years, Professor. Reynolds resigned to
become president of Capital University, at Columbus, Ohio. Pro-
fessor Stoever was appointed to fill the vacancy, and held this
position until his death, in 1869. At this time Professor Jacobs
had been elected to the Franklin Professorship, and to this chair
the course in Latin was transferred. ln 1881 the Board made a
general readjustment of the various departments, and the Latin
chair became the Pearson Professorship of the Latin Language
and Literature. Dr. Bikle, who had been head of the department
of Physics and Astronomy, was elected to the Latin Professor-
ship, and has held that position ever since.
The Rev. Philip Melanchthon Bikle, A. M., Ph. D., was
graduated from Gettysburg in 1866, as Salntatorian of his class,
and three years later he was graduated from the Theological
Seminary. After a great deal of experience in teaching he was
called to be Professor of Physics at Gettysburg College in 1874,
and in 1881 was chosen Pearson Professor of Latin. Three years
later, Dr. Bikle received his degree of Ph. D. from -Roanoke Col-
lege. In 1889 he was made Dean of the Faculty, and has been
serving in that capacity since that time. Under his influence the
Latin department has become one of the best conducted depart-
ments in the institution. Dr. Bikle is a member of the American
Philological Association, the E X Fraternity, the 111 B K Society,
and the Phrenakosmian Society.
Franklin Professorship of the Greek Language and
The chair of the Greek Language was one of the first pro-
fessorships established by the Board, and the Rev. H. L. Baugher
was elected as the First professor. He vacated the chair in 1850
to become President of the College, and in his stead the Board
appointed Prof. F. A. Muhlenberg, of Franklin College. Lancas-
ter, which was about to be dissolved. One-third interest in
Franklin College was transferred to Gettysburg in 1853, thus
founding the Franklin Professorship of the Ancient Languages.
On the founding of Muhlenberg College, Professor Muhlenberg
was chosen as its first president, and resigned his professorship
at Gettysburg. Prof. H. Louis Baugher was then Greek Profes-
sor until ISSO. when he resigned. In 1881 the chair became the
Franklin Professorship of the Greek Language and Literature,
with Dr. Jacobs as its first incumbent. In 1883 Dr. Jacobs was
succeeded by Dr. H. L. Baugher. who resigned in 1896, when
Professor Klinger was elected to the position of Greek Professor,
and has held it ever since then.
The Rev. Oscar Godfrey Klinger, A. M., was graduated from
Gettysburg in 1886. After completing his course in the Theo-
logical Seminary, he went to Cincinnati as city missionary, and
two years later he became Principal of the Kee Mar College for
Womeii. In ISQZ he was elected Principal of Stevens Hall, and
four years later he was advanced to the Greek Professorship in
Gettysburg College. Professor Klinger is a member of the Phil-
omathean and Pen and Sword Societies, and of the db 1' A Fra-
Alumni Professorship of Mathematics and Astronomy
The' first teacher of Mathematics in Pennsylvania College
was Rev. M. Jacobs, who occupied tl1e chair of Natural Philoso-
phy. Chemistry and Mathematics. This work under his direction
so progressed that in 1845 it became necessary to divide it. Prof.
H. Haunt, A. M., was elected as adjunct Professor of Mathe-
matics, Drawing and French. The new Professorship of Natural
Sciences was established in 1865. By this readjustment of courses
only Mathematics and Astronomy were left to Dr. Jacobs' de-
partment. Shortly afterwards, however, Dr. Iacobs' health began
to fail and he was compelled to give up teaching after a long and
very active career of thirty-four years. In appreciation of his
valuable services, he was awarded the nosition of Professor
Emeritus. Prof. Luther H. Croll succeeded him, occupying this
position until 1888, when on account of ill health he was com-
pelled to withdraw from his duties. A year later Professor Croll
died and Dr. H. B. Nixon, Ph. D., who had been conducting the
work during Professor Croll's illness, was elected to the profes-
The Alllllllll Professorship of Mathematics and Astronomy
was endowed in 1904 on funds raised by the Alumni of the Col-
lege. In IQO7, Mr. H. S. Dornberger, A. M., was elected as the
first assistant in this department, which has grown greatly during
Dr. Nixon's incumbency. The following year. the present assist-
ant, Mr. F. G. Troxell, A. B., succeeded Mr. Dornberger.
Graff Professorship of Biology and Hygiene
In 1887, Dr. George D. Stahley was elected to the chair of
Physical Culture and Hygiene. Being a graduate of Gettysburg,
he had always taken a personal interest in her welfare, and upon
his election he immediately set out to find some field of greater
usefulness to his Alma Mater. Seeing that the College was in
great need of a course in Biology in order to keep pace with the
other institutions, he petitioned the Board of Trustees for the
permission to establish such a course and, with their approval.
he set about the work at once. As the result of his tireless
efforts, the present excellent course in Biology and Hygiene is
offered. The department is constantly growing. It is today in-
strumental in drawing many students to Gettysburg to prepare
for the study of medicine. The work is carried on by lectures.
demonstrations, dissections, quizzes, etc., in a well-lighted and
well-equipped laboratory. The course includes the following
branches: General Biology, Invertebrate Zoology, Vertebrate
Zoology, Human Anatomy. Mammalian Histology, and Embry-
The Amanda Rupert Strong Memorial Professorship
of English Bible and Chaplaincy
This professorship was endowed by Mr. James Strong. a
successful business man of Philadelphia, and an active worker
in the Lutheran Church, as a memorial to his first wife. He re-
served the right, in endowing this chair, to name its first incum-
bent. He showed his competency in this direction by nominating
Prof. Eli Huber, D. D., who was his first pastor. Dr. Huber
served faithfully until 1904, when Rev. M. Coover, D. D.. Pastor
of the College Church. was chosen as his successor. Rev. Dr.
Coover served but one year, being called to a chair in the Theo-
logical Seminary. Rev. John O. Evjen, Ph. D.. was secured as
his successor. Dr. Evjen filled the chair very successfully until
the Spring of 1909. At the beginning of the following Fall term,
the present incumbent. Prof. A. R. Vifentz. began his duties in
this department, and has since conducted them in a very success-

Professorship of the German Language and Literature
Among the chairs established at the founding of the College
was the Professorship of the Latin Language and of the German
Language, with the Rev. E. L. Hazelius, D. D., as its first incum-
bent. ln 1838 the College received aid from the State to provide
for a separate German chair, as it was rather unusual for German
to be taught in colleges. The Rev. H. I. Smith, A. M., was
elected Professor of the German Language and Literature and
French, and he was followed in turn by the Rev. C. A. Hay, the
Rev. C. P. Schaeffer, M-r. G. F. Speiker, the Rev. I. E. Wilken,
the Rev. E. W. A. Notz. Ph. D., Prof. A. Martin, Prof. Charles
P. Bredi, Prof. Charles F. VVoods, and Dr. S. G. Hefelbower.
Upon the election of Dr. l-lefelbower to the Presidency of the
College, Prof. C. E. Dryden was appointed Professor of German.
He served in this capacity until 1906. when he Was made the
Professor of the French Language, and Dr. Grimm was appointed
to till his place.
Karl Josef Grimm, Ph. D., completed his collegiate education
at Grossherzogliche Gymnasia, Wertliheiin, and Tauberbischofs-
heim in 1887. The following year he came to America and stud-
ied English and Philosophy at St. Ierome's College at Berlin,
Ontario. From 1889 to 1891 he studied at Rome, and from 1892
to 1895 he took a course at the Theological Seminary at Gettys-
burg. After studying at Johns-Hopkins and teaching at Ursinus
College, he came to Gettysburg as the Professor of German. Dr.
Grimm is a member of the American Oriental Society, the So-
ciety of Biblical Literature, the Modern Language Association,
and the fb B K Society.
Professorship of Philosophy
At the meeting of the Board of Trustees in june, IQO6, an
instructorship in Psychology was created. The Executive Com-
mittee was authorized to fill it for one year only and accordingly
elected Rev. C. F. Sanders to conduct the work. Prior to 1884
the President of the College conducted a course in Psychology,
Ethics, Christian Evidence, and Natural Theology. From that
time up until 1906 this course was restricted to Psychology and
Ethics. Wlieii chosen for this instructorshin Professor Sanders
was doing post-graduate work at the University of Leipsic. At
the next meeting of the Board. the instructorship was discontin-
ned, and a Professorship of Philosophy created in its stead. This
course now includes Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Educa-
tion, Theism, and Logic, and has been conducted very ably by
Professor Sanders since his election.
DR. PARSON s
Professorship of Physics
Physics was first taught in this College in connection with
Chemistry and the Natural Sciences. Upon the resignation of
Prof. Sadtler, in 1874, the chair of Physics and Astronomy was
created by the Board, with Dr. Bikle as professor until 1888
Physics was then reunited with Chemistry under the charge of
Dr. Breidenbaugh, and remained so until 1907, when the chair of
Physics was created. The Board elected Louis A. Parsons, Ph. D.,
to fill the chair which had just been endowed. Since the
coming of Dr. Parsons, the course in Physics has been greatly
improved, and a large stock of apparatus has been added, while
the basement of Recitation Hall has been transformed into a well-
Dr. Parsons was graduated from Iowa State University in
1895. He taught Science in the Burlington High School for the
next three years, and by studying during the summers he ob-
tained his degree of M. A. in 1898. For the next four years he
took up post-graduate Work at Iohns-Hopkins University, and
from 1902 to 1903 he was instructor in Physics. After teaching
Physics at Utah State University and then at California State
University, he came to Gettysburg College in 1907, and he has
faithfully performed his duty.
Dr. Parsons is ably assisted by Mr. Rufus A. VVeaver, B. S.,
of the class of 1907.

The .lolms Hopkins-Gettysburg Club
VVith the beginning of the second year of the life of the
Johns Hopkins-Gettysburg Club, the membership sprang upward
with a bound, and this fact can be traced, with very little trouble.
to the efforts of the club itself. The club holds a unique position
among tlie many Gettysburg alumni clubs in that all of its mem-
bers are pursuing post-graduate work at a university. - -
The aim and endeavor of the club is to promote the intellec-
tual, moral and social welfare of its membersg to ever strive to
increase the loyalty of its members to their Alma Mater, and to
cherish and foster due regard for the Johns Hopkins University.
It stands ever ready to lend a useful hand to Gettysburg men
entering the University, and as an organization it tries to fulfill
the obligations of any other alumni association.

Although the club is only in its second year. the membership
is increasing, and loyalty and enthusiasm for old Gettysburg is
always present. All that we can hope to do at the present is to
try to further the interests of our College whenever an oppor-
tunity presents itself, to uphold the standard of the College in
our work, and to extend to all Gettysburg men contemplating
post-graduate work a cordial invitation to attend the University
here. Meeting as we do very often at club smokers and meetings
gives the organization an atmosphere most fraternal. We are
always glad of the opportunity to Welcome visiting Gettysburg

Senior Class History
To write the history of the Class of 1910 is a task filled with
much pleasure. for our record as a class has been an enviable
one. To give a full and complete account of our doings would
necessitate in a large measure to give a history of the progress
of Gettysburg in the last four years. Of course, modesty and
space forbids this and we must be content with a partial account.
Four years ago we entered as a band of Freshmen and were
doubtless marked by the verdure of our youth. Yet we held
many ideals and fond hopes. Now these have passed into stern
realities, and we can reflect upon our course as four years well
Of the 80 members who have been enrolled in our class since
the Fall of 1906, there remain S2 who are running the last lap of
the race. Some of our ex-members have entered other institu-
tions of learning, some professions and business and are already
showing the influence of their sojourn at Gettysburg.
Senior Class History-Continlied
Over our successes as unclerclassmen we must necessarily
pass rapidly in order to save space for our larger deeds in the
list of upperclassmen. Suhice to say, we enjoyed a good measure
of success in our contests against our rival classes in contests
both physical and mental. True. we were not always victors, but
the dauntless spirit of the class has always been able to see fur-
ther than a momentary defeat. and our reverses have served as
stepping stones to higher things.
Our life as upperclassmen has been merely the logical con-
clusion of a foundation well laid, and progress has continually
marked our pathway. As upperclassnien we have not lost an
athletic contest. In basketball we have lost but one game since
our Freshman year, and last year captured the championship
from what was practically the varsity team. History again re-
peated itself in the interclass track meet and the blue and white
Socially our class has always made its mark. Our class ban-
quets were both successful, and our prom has set a standard
which will be difficult to follow.
True and loyal as our class spirit has been, we have always
placed Gettysburg before IQIO. 'We have always had good repre-
sentation on varsity teams. During our course seven members
of 1910 have won places on the varsity football team. This year
the basketball team is honored by four of our members. ln track
we will again have a large representation. Wfe are well repre-
sented on both glee and mandolin clubs.
ln literary work we have always been active. The revival
of literary spirit at Gettysburg this year has been largely due to
the untiring efforts of some of our men. The College papers have
both enjoyed most prosperous years of activity in our hands.
Our sanctum was up to the standard. Last year one of our meni-
bers was on the intercollegiate debating team which brought such
signal honors to our Alma Mater. This year we have two mem-
bers on a similar team, as well as four on inter-society teams.
VVe have always guarded very zealously the traditions of the
school, and have done much towards founding new systems for
the betterment of conditions.
VVe have every reason to believe that the student self-gov-
ernment we are now urging will become an actuality. The honor
system has been much discussed, and we trust the interest aroused
along this line may continue to grow until the system may be
given a trial.
Intellectually our class has had few equals in recent years,
and our ability combined with our true loyalty and devotion to
the best interests of Gettysburg as shown in our student life
promises much for our Alma Mater in the new role we are about

Junior Class History
It now becomes the privilege of the Class of IQII to write its
own history in its own book, and it is but natural that we should
tell of some of our struggles and successes. l1Ve desire not to
boast of our deeds but simply to set forth in plain language the
outcome of some memorable battles. We shall make no attempt
to hide our defeats, even though we do feel that our few defeats
have been but the stepping-stones to our success.
The Class of IQII has always ably held its place in College
activities. Wlieii we consider that a departure from the usual
custom resulted in a Junior football captain during the season of
1909, and that similar action resulted in a Junior baseball captain
in IQIO, we must conclude that there is some athletic ability Wor-
thy of note incorporated within the body of the Class of 1911.
And when we learn that the football captain for the season of
1910 is a 1911 'man. and that the baseball captain will without
doubt be a 1911 man. we are doubly sure that in athletics We
have always maintained a high standard. In class athletics we
have done as well as could be expected and perhaps a little bet-
Junior Class History-Conflnued
ter. Our class football team never lost a game. Our contest
with 1910 in our Freshman year resulted in a 0-0 score, although
the play was largely in Sophomore territory. In our Sophomore
ning from the excellent Freshman team. superior generalship and
training won the day and 1911 triumphed by a score of 4-0. In
basketball in our Freshman year our team played the Sopho-
against fearful odds and with apparently no hope of win-
mores practically to a standstill but lost in the last few minutes
of play. ln our Sophomore year. weakened by the loss of a num-
ber of our best basketball men, there again appeared to be no
hopes for victory, but again the Goddess of Fortune smiled upon
us. and when the smoke of a fiercely fought battle cleared away,
the full-conhdent Freshmen had the consolation of another 1911
victory by the score of 20-IS. ln baseball we as Freshmen wit-
nessed a gratifying application of the whitewasli-brush, applied
to the Sophomores to the tune of 8-0. In our Sophomore year,
confronted by a varsity pitcher whose prowess we all know, we
bowed submission by a score of 2-0.
But while part of our class has been actively engaged mak-
ing athletic history for us, the rest have not been idle. In literary
activities our class has perhaps been even stronger than in ath-
letics. ln our Freshman year we lost the annual Sophomore-
Freshman debate by a very small margin. In our Sophomore
year we more than made up for this loss by winning the entire
series of Gies Prize Debates. 'Ifhis record is an enviable one and
reflects much credit on 1911. This year we have a representative
on the College debating team. On the staffs of the different Col-
lege publications are found many 1911 men holding high posi-
tions. ln music we are well represented. A number of men are
on the musical clubs. while the leader of the glee club is a 1911
man. Wie even claim the distinction of having one or two poets
as a perusal of this book will testify. Quite a number of 1911
men are members of the Pen and Sword Society. VVe enjoy the
distinction of being one of the two classes in the history of Get-
tysburg to have a member elected to Pen and Sword while he
was yet an underclassman.
Such, in part, is the history of the Class of 1911. Again W-.
ask you not to take this as being given in a boastful spirit, but a
simple statement of facts as they exist. Other history is being
made by each individual member of the class: which will in time
to come reflect credit upon the Class of 1911 and the College
with which we have been associated.

- This bright specimen of depraved humanity hails from the mountainous dis-
tricl: near Noxen, Pa. He is one of the shining lights of our class. Since coming
to Gettysburg, besides learning an inestimable amount of good things for future
use, he has recently learned to play that fascinating game called-dorninoes. He
is quite a ladies'- man, but a very sly one. On his evenings "out on the carpet"
he will tell you that he has a book to deliver to some fair co-ed. Even if this
is the case sometimes, the time it takes to deliver the book always shows that he
is "killing two birds with one stone." In spite of all this he says that his motto
is: Business First and pleasure afterwards. In the rush of business following
some special advertising at the Dickinson game, he had to call in Hege to help
him out. He has asked us to announce here, that he has changed his offices from
the Wfabash to the Eagle, where he can he found each evening during office hours,
namely, from 10 to 12 o'clock.

"So fair, so sweet, withal so sensitive."
Maude is not of the hee-haw variety-far be it from her. She hails from the
other side of the Mason and Dixon line, and is a perfect example of Southern
charm and courtesy. Never unladylike or loud, she forms quite a contrast with
some of the other lievlier co-eds around her. By the constant use of H202 and
magic curlers, Maude has become the proud possessor of the most beautiful tresses
in these regions. but not satisfied with this mighty aehievenient, she is now

this brightness is not lost although it is then rather subjective than obiective.
She is a great favorite among- the other co-eds and her winsome smiles have
attracted some others. Only once in her career have we known the countenance
of Frances to be clouded. This came about the time of the junior Pro-m. One
other time the smile disappeared. This was when thisvery book was being com-

the Baum Mathematics prize. He, with the assistance of "Pop", is now laying
out plans for a subway and a new Union depot for Gettysburg. Let us hope the
plans work out so that ordinary men can appreciate them. One would think that
mathematics and matrimony are in no way related. Yet a visit to 17 XVest, where
Hatter dwells in peace and harmony with Earl I., would prove the contrary true,
even if the visitor were not a Helmholtz or a Vllundt. Hatter contends that mathe-
matics can best be pursued by an unmarried man and brings in as proof "signs"
and "co-signs". Earl takes the opposite stand, but as yet has been unable to
convince him. Hatter says he is ready to meet all comers on this Question.

Louis HETZEL ........ Connellsville, Pa.
The exact time that Louis came to Gettysburg is unknown, but it was some-
time in the Middle Ages of Prep. There is a tradition that he drifted down the
Tiber in an aluminum kettle, which became stranded at Gettysburg. Be this as
it may, the fact remains that Louis has an Aluminum Idol in his room which he
prays to every night. He claims that the aluminum business offers a great train-
ing for a young man. "Just see what it has made of me." Since entering college
Louis has spent most of his time on German. He intends to reform the arrange-
ment of the language. He says that the words are mixed up and do not come in
the order that we speak them. Louis enters into his work with such an earnest-
ness that he forgets all minor affairs, which often gets him into trouble. In his
Freshman year he sometimes forgot to wear his cap until the Knights of the
Flcfmdy Knife gave him a constant reminder by depriving him of his beautiful

good boy, go to Sunday school, say his prayers. etc. But how different now i!

flash of sunlight crossed his path. He followed it and thereby hangs a tale. Bus-
iness decreased while other affairs increased. Timefflew with winged speed and
soon September loomed up before him. XVith cast-down heart and cast-aside
pocketbook, Miles returned to his home. Now he tries to figure out how it all
happened. Miles came to us in our Sophomore year, having received his Fresh-
man .initiation at Albright College. And even at this time Albright has a warm
spot in his heart. He is constantly comparing Albright with Gettysburg and tells
us just wherein they are our superior. Careful analysis, however, shows that the
one great difference lies on the co-ed side. Miles is a heart-smasher and he longs
for dear, old Albright, where they have more co-eds.

XVhen this left-handed man of Connie Mack's left York the town was in tears,
knowing full well that Gettysburg College was too small for him. During his
Freshman year "Bub" was a very meek boy indeed, but what a sorry spectacle
to behold now. Since he has got himself elected baseball manager he has become
unbearable. At any time of the day or night this nonentity can be heard spouting
the baseball he doesn't know. "l3ub's" only crime is in being alive, and a pre-
ponderating liking for the ladies-many of them. Vanity encourages a wide
latitude and fickleness may well be said to be contained therein. "Bub's" long
suit is fickleness-only a short space of time is required to forget-the old saying
"out'of sight out of mind" very well applies.

"Milky', came to Gettysburg to show us how to play football, put shot, throw
hammers, and such stunts. He first came into the limelight on account of his
pugilistic ability, which he demonstrated early in his career at college. f'Milky',
is a great admirer of "Hefty", whom he loves with a tender devotion. His great-
est claim to distinction is his ability as a hunter. Like George Wfashington, he
cannot tell a lie and for this reason is always getting into trouble. "Milky,' has
always been a source of worriment to "Pop", wlIo is always afraid that he will
throw that hammer so high that he might disrupt the schedule of the solar sys-
tem. "Milky" expects some day to run an up-to-date hotel where all who love
soft1?3 drinks will be given special attention.

to graduate some day, and then End some unsuspecting maiden whom he can
persuade to leave her happy home for him. Then he will settle down and become

Our dear friend "Hennie" dropped in on us in our Sophomore year and has
been with us ever since, with the exception of as much time as the Faculty
decided that he needed a rest because of over-work. He came here tired with the
purpose of becoming a real student and at once arranged a full schedule of music,
pool and sundaes. Nothing daunted by this imposing array of major studies, he
has even added several minors, among which are English and French. "Hennie"
certainly has a heavy schedule, but he has strong shoulders, even if the trials of
last year did put a crook into his back.

Wfe are very glad to say that Dr. Nixon, after making numerous observations
covering a period of three years, has been able to observe a slight movement of
this formerly-considered stationary body. Nevertheless the movement is so slight
that it has not yet been accurately determined what the cause of it might be.
Probably it is a magnetic pole located somewhere in Maryland that is exerting
this disturbing influence, and probably it's the waywardness of his elder brother.
Nevertheless it can hardly be enough to draw him out of his present course, and
therefore no apprehension need be felt.

1912 Class History
Listen, dear reader, and you shall hear, not of the midnight
ride of Paul Revere, but a short history of a lively bunch of
students. Ever since September II, 1908, when eighty-tive husky
Freshmen rolled into Gettysburg, the Class of 1912 has been doing
things. ln the first place, I might say that the class has never
lost sight of its original motive in coming to college-namely, to
seek an education.
VVe were in Gettysburg but a few hours until we demon-
strated to the college world that we had the college spirit and
the valor of our fathers who fought so nobly on this 'renowned
battlefield. This spirit has been developing with the class.
On the evening of January 27, 1909, just as the College clock
struck nine, numberless Freshmen could be seen leaving the dor-
mitories and strolling down across the campus to Brua Chapel,
where they assembled into one crowd. At the signal to start they
fell in line two by two and marched up town to the Hotel Get-
1912 Class History-Continued
tysburg. By this time the "Sophs" were all stationed at the hotel
to bar our entranceg and the upperclassmen were there to see
the fun. Having arrived there after our troops had been reviewed
by many admiring citizens. it was only a moment's task until.
with the exception of three or four unfortunates. we were all in
the hotel ready to partake of our evening meal. VVe banqueted
in royal style and not until the crowing of the cock did we retire
to our rooms to enjoy pleasant dreams of our first banquet.
In basketball last year we had a very successful season. Al-
though we didn't win any inter-class games, it must be borne in
mind that we were only Freshmen and as such had to face diffi-
culties that the other classes did not. Out of our class came the
star player of the varsity team.
In the inter-class track meet which was held in the spring,
our class came out carrying second honors.
Although our Freshman year was a successful one thus far,
a happy climax was reached when, about two weeks before Com-
mencement, the Freshmen sent their victorious "nine" out on to
the baseball diamond. The "nine!', amid wild cheers of joy,
walked off the diamond with a victory of 8-2 written on their
faces, while the IQI2 rooters cut the green buttons off their caps
and sent them flying into space.
Five of the varsity f'nine" were Freshmen.
On September 15, 1909, we again rolled into Gettysburg, not
as Freshmen, but as Sophomores, our horizon having been won-
derfully broadened by a year's experience in the college world.
In our first year We had the Class of 1911 to contend and to
compete with. In this, our second year, 1911 has passed into
dignity and we are battling with a new class-1913.
A few weeks after our arrival, one hot Saturday afternoon,
IQI2 appeared on Nixon field for its first contest with the Fresh-
men. The contest consisted of a tug-of-war and a tie-up. The
"palm", bearing a score of 88-22, was bestowed upon 1912.
About Thanksgiving the two classes were again drawn up on
Nixon field, this time each represented by their football eleven.
It was a hard and interesting tight from beginning to end, but
1912 played a consistent game and once more carried off the spoils
of victory. The score, 8-0, was the largest inter-class football
score for a number of years.
On the varsity eleven, as usual. 1912 was not lacking. lfVe
furnished more varsity football men than any other one class in
All classes have their victories and defeats. Ours is no ex-
ception. In the annual inter-class debate, the Freshmen, having
the advantageous side of the question, defeated us by a small
On February 2, 1910, the ground-hog saw his shadow and
crawled back in hishole. The Freshmen followed suit. At II :15
we heard rumors that the Hotel ,Gettysburg was to banquet the
Freshmen at I2 o'clock noon. These rumors were soon verified
and immediately we were capturing Freshmen wherever they
could be found. The news spread like wild-fire, so did the
"Sophs" and left behind them a wide path of destruction. l-lere,
there, and everywhere 'lSophs" might be seen marching Freshmen
towards the prison-South College.
To make a long story short, out of the whole Freshman class,
twenty-two banqueted at the hotel. The remainder ate ham-sand-
Wiches behind the bars. It must be admitted that the Freshmen
had their banquet well-planned and everybody would have got
there if we hadn't interfered with the plans.
Thus runs the history of our official victories and defeats, and
if space would permit it many interesting tales might be told.
However, we are young yet in our college course and while ours
has been a class crowned with unusual success thus far, we see
still brighter things in the future.

, Freshman Class Poem
This is to note in humble strains
The dream of 13,3 sturdy swainsg
An aspiration and an aim
To strive to glory and to fame.
We gathered here from far and wide,
From lowland, vale, and mountain side,
Our destiny to mould and form,
Through days of sunshine, days of Storm
For days of storm are sure to come,
Since life is not all joy for some,
But sorrow, grief, and toilsome pain
Are sure the human life to stain.
But even though some days are dark,
There lies beyond a golden mark
Wliich only effort, unsurpassed,
Can bring within our reach at last.
So strive we must our goal to reach,
And let us learn what ages teach,
That upward, We can only go
By effort, hard. however slow.
Then let us work with might and main
A holy aim to gain,
For only in the good and true
Lies real Success, what e'er we do.

Crimson and Black
History of the Class of 1913
It is our belief that a class should conduct itself and its affairs
so as to benefit its Alma Mater. Such is the spirit that has
guided us during our short existence.
This spirit manifested itself while the class was in Stevens
Hall, where it erected a class memorial in the form of a concrete
walk instead of daubing the building with numerals, as had been
the custom. It was this same spirit that led the class to decide
at its first meeting to ignore the Sophomore posters, thus breaking
the bad custom of a class fight on the opening night of school.
Our first encounter with the Sophomores occurred on the
Saturday following the opening of college, when the class showed
up remarkably well in the tie-up, and when in the tug-of-war our
team, though out-weighed fifteen pounds to a man, pulled with
such vigor and might as only men of spirit and determination
can pull against such odds.
In the football contest with the Sophomores the Freshman
team played with vim and pluck and, were only defeated by rea-

son of inexperience. Not until the end of the second half was
the Sophomore team able, by a streak of luck, to make a touch-
Though defeated in a contest of brawn, IQI3 showed its
superiority over its rival in a contest of brains. The Freshman
debating team, all representative IQI3 men, worked energetically
for weeks preparing for this contest. Their side of the inter-class
debate with the Sophomores was carried on in such a way that
it was plain that their preparation, thought. argument and delivery
were far above that of their opponentsg so that no one was Sul'-
prised when the decision was rendered in their favor.
In consideration of this victory the Freshmen were allowed
to remove the yellow buttons from their caps. and as this is the
earliest time, in the history of the institution, that the buttons
have been removed, one can readily imagine the joy of the
Our team next met the Junior debating team and in a close
contest carried off another victory, in consequence of which we
were permitted to discard the Freshman cap, being the only class
thus far which has had this privilege.
The class banquet was held on February 2 at the Gettysburg
Hotel. None of those present are likely ever to forget the
sumptuous feast and good-fellowship of that afternoon. President
McGowan and the banquet committee deserved to be especially
mentioned for their untiring' efforts and the judgment with which
they conducted matters.
1913 is well represented in all college activities. There has
not been a program of either literary society on which there has
not appeared at least three IQI3 men, while a majority of mem-
bers ot the society musical clubs are Freshmen. Both the glee
and mandolin clubs are well supported by IQI3 men. In Y. M.
C. A. work Freshmen have taken a leading part, many of the
devotional meetings having been conducted by them.
In all things we have done whatever it was possible to do
for the advancement of old Gettysburg, ever striving to leave her
better than we found her.

Rev. Herbert Rinard
Herbert Rinard was born September 19,
1880. at Breezewood, Bedford County, Pa.
l-le attended the public schools and entered
Susquehanna Preparatory School in the fall
of ISQ7. He spent one year at this insti-
tution, and in the fall of T898 entered the
Preparatory Department of Gettysburg.
One year later, having completed his
preparatory course, he became a student of
Pennsylvania College. Vtfhile here he took
an active part in student life. He was a
star half-back on the varsity football team
for three years, and also played varsity
baseball for the same number of years. He
managed the basketball team in his Senior
He was a member of the Glee Club for
four years, and was also prominent in the
activities of the Philomathean Literary
The appreciation of his interest in reli-
gious work was shown by his election to
the cabinet of the Y. M. C. A. He is also
a member of the A T Q Fraternity.
In June of IQO3 he graduated with the
Hachelor of Arts degree. In the following
September he entered the Gettysburg Theo-
logical Seminary. In this institution he
took the full course of three years, and in
the spring of 1906 he was licensed to preach.

his capability of adapting himself to exist-
ing conditions, and had his work on a sound
basis when recalled to the service of his
Alma Mater. Consequently he resigned this
charge and accepted the office of Student
Secretary in Pennsylvania College in july,
Rev. Rinard has been a college man
among college men. He has had three
years' experience as a pastor and apreacher,
consequently he appreciates the problems
confronting the students now, and those
that will confront them after their college
course is finished.
Rev. Rinard has proved a capable can-

for the Y. M. C. A. His ideals and aims
are right. The welfare of Gettysburg forms

For his genial manner and ever-ready wit,
for his interest in the student life, for his
earnest labors in Gettysburgts behalf, Rev.
Rinard will always be thought of as a
strong, though quiet, influence in the stu-
dent life, and as a true son of Gettysburg

Y. lVI. C. A. History
Gettysburg affords an excellent opportunity for development.
Ordinarily the development of the mental and physical occupy a
very prominent place and take much of the college mans time,
but at Gettysburg as many opportunities are given to develop
the spiritual nature as there are to develop the mental and physx
cal. The Y. M. C. A. very ably tills this place, in the college
activities. Since its organization on March 15, 1867, it hast'-always
been one of the most potent factors in moulding the life of the
College. The infiuence of the Association has been felt inf all
phases of college life. lt has sought to bind the studentsctoser
to each other and to God. thereby stimulating a stronger feeling
of brotherly love throughout the student body. XIVC are-glad' to
note that the present year has been a most successful one. and
credit must be given to the officers, and especially to the commit-
tees, for their helpful services.
Especially are we grateful that we again have a Student Sec-
retary in the person of Rev. H. A. Rinard, '03 Rev. Riinard has
very ably discharged his duties in connection with the 'Associa-
tion and has exerted an influence for good among thef student
body at large. His wise counsel and directing hand have been
very helpful to the officers and members of the Association in
carrying on their work.
During the year forty-four new men have joined the Asso-
ciation. This was largely due to the efforts of the membership
In Bible and mission study work the usual good record of
the past has been sustained. One hundred and two men were en-
rolled in the former and the classes were in charge of competent
teachers, mostly Seminarians. ln this work was introduced the
system of making monthlv reports, the1'ebv arousing interest and
keeping the attendance at an unusually high standard. In mis-
sion study the field for consideration during the year was chiefly
South America. Only twenty-tive men were enrolled in this work.
The mid-week devotional services, along with the Sunday
morning meetings, have been up to their usual high standard.
The devotional committee has secured some very efhcient speak-
ers and the general interest and attendance in these meetings
has been very gratifying.
The committee on General Religious Vtfork is especially to
be commended for their Work during the past year. More men
have been actively engaged in this phase of Association work
than forisome time past. In the surrounding country four Sun-
day schools have been regularly conducted, some of them during
the entire scholastic year. Regular, services have also been held
at the county, almshouse. In all phases of its work this commit-
tee has had no less than thirty-five men actively engaged.
The lecture course- committee has been exceptionally active
in giving the' College a series of entertainments hard to excel.
For each number it has secured special talent, and the concerts
and lectures were of a very high character.
One ofgthe most successful features of the year's work was
the week ofprayer. The Rev. S. P. Long, D. D., of Mansfield,
Ohio, was with us and delivered a series of most powerful ser-
mons on John 5-39. These meetings drew large crowds from
town besides almost the entire student body, and their good re-
sults were manifested on all sides.
The animal Spring Festival was a most enjoyable occasion.
At the opening of the year the annual reception to the new stu-
dents served to bring the Association to the attention of the new
men. Dr. Grimm presided. The reception was marked by a dis-
play of much college spirit and general good-fellowship.
At the conventions of the year the Association was well rep-
resented. We had four men at Northfieldg five at the Student
Volunteer Conference at Rochester, N. Y.. and one at the State
Convention at Oil City.
All in all, the work of the Association has progressed very
nicely. We realize that we have left much'undone, but we are
grateful for the measure of success which has been accorded to
us. and we feel sure that the healthy spirit of the Association
betokens bright things for the future.

History of Plirenakosmian Literary Society
The college world is a world of various interests. The Get-
tysburg man enumerates with pride the achievements of the
football eleven or the baseball nine which has done battle for
Gettysburg, he delights in the success of the musical clubs, or
again in the social delights of his fraternity. Yes, these college
pursuits are legitimate, they are helpful: but there is another
Gettysburg institution which most worthily rivals them all,
namely, the literary society. It is the literary society that oFfers
the broadest field for intellectual culture and repays most lavishly
the man who does labor in her service.
Are the above statements empty rhetoric. or are they based
on fact? Let us see. Statistics are proverbially dry, but here
are some which speak most eloquently: During the first term
of the present scholastic year, Phrena, Gettysburg's largest society.
gave over go per cent of her 110 members genuine practice in
the forensic and literary arts. This does not include the large
number of Phrenakosmians who have so often delighted the
society with music. Phrena proudly boasts of a mandolin club.
and an orchestra which has more than once entertained the whole
college with its skill. Then, too, the Phrena piano has again and
again responded to the exouisite touch of the Phrena co-eds to
the delight of us all. .
ln' the way of literature. the extensive Phrena library affords
tl1e best of reading matter for her members.
The class debates, which do so much to develop our winning
intercollegiate teams. are now carried on under the auspices of
the literary societies, each society contributing financially to their
support. VVe might here note the fact that six out of the nine
men thus far chosen for the class teams have been Phrena men.
During the first term several special programs were rendered
to the credit of the societv and to the pleasure of the listener.
During the second term an illustrated lecture on the Bock of
Esther was given by Dr. Billheimer. This lecture was attended
by the entire student body and bears testimony to the treats
which Phrena gives her members.
ln the near future Phrena will meet in contlict her old rival,
Philo. The Phrena warriors have girdcd on the armor of battle,
the guns are ready. and we feel confident that when the smokt
of battle shall have rolled away, Phrena will be disclosed mighty
and strong-a conqueror.
In every department of college work the Phrena man is in
evidence and his boundless enthusiasm completely refutes the
unlucky individual who disoarages literary work or unhappily
attempts to minimize the efforts or accomplislnnents of Phrena.
May Phrena ever continue to prosper as she prospers now!

The History of Pliilomathean Literary Society
Another year has passed in the history of Philo and it is
with great pride and pleasure that her historian is able to record
the various events of the past year. lt is the part of the literary
society to foster a literary spirit in the college. ln this respect
Philo has been particularly successful.
At the beginning of the year the regular meetings of the
society were conducted with the right spirit. That this enthu-
siasm of the members has not Hagged is shown by the well-
rendered programs, and the good attendance at the weekly meet-
ings. The special programs rendered at different times have
afforded much entertainment to the large and appreciative audi-
ences. As a result, we have been able to add to our roll many
In other college activities Philo has not been found wanting.
Practically all the men on the Mandolin Club are Philos, and a
goodly number are on the Glee Club, including the reader.
In the '09 Oratorical Contest both the prize and honorable
mention were won by Philo men. The editor of Mercury for the
coming year is a member of Philo.
Tn one line of activity there has been a marked improvement,
namely, in debating. The steps taken by the society for main-
taining the inter-class debates a1'e deserving of much credit. Two
of her men are on the Sophomore debating team and one on the
Junior team. In the recent debate with Bucknell, in which Get-
tysburg won, Philo contributed two of the victors.
Another thing which must not be overlooked is the great
amount of reading done by the members. To meet the greatly
increased demand on our library, a great many books devoted to
various subjects are being added.
At the time ot this writing the inter-society contest has not
yet taken placeg consequently, we can make no comments upon
it. But with the favorable indications everywhere manifested,
we have every reason to expect a victory over our rivals.
VVith such an illustrious past history, such an active and
enthusiastic present, we cannot but predict that Philds future
will be crowned with ever increasing success.

' Intercollegiate Debating Team
The field of intercollegiate debates is one newly entered upon
by Gettysburg teams. The Keystone Debating League, composed
of the three colleges-Lafayette, Bucknell, and Gettysburg, was
formed in December, 1907. In the founding of the league, to
increase- interest and to create greater rivalry, it was agreed to
award a prize to each member of the winning team. That this
prize might be of a lasting quality as well as one greatly to be
desired, a ten-dollar gold medal was chosen.
, So far in the history of the league only two series can be
recorded. In the first of these Gettysburg started off by winning
the first contest of the series from Lafayette. This debate took
place on February 6, IQO8, at Easton, ln the second contest of
this series, held at Lewisburg on May 15, 1908, the decision of
the judges granted Bucknell the supremacy. Our team of this
year was composed of: W. C. Waltemyer, 'O83 S. F. Snyder, ,095
and C. S. Bream, IOQ. ,
Last year, the first of the series deciding the championship
for the year 1909 was between Lafayette and Bucknell, at Lewis-
burg, on February 6. Lafayette being successful in this, the
championship was decided in Brua Chapel on April 30, when, in
a spirited debate. Gettysburg defeated Lafayette and thus won
the championship of the league for the year. The Gettysburg
men to whom the medals were awarded in this contest were:
S.,F. Snyder, ,OQQ Waltz, 509, and jenkins, ,IO.
For the year 1910, the history can be only partially written.
Gettysburg won the first debate of the series from Bucknell in
Brua Chapel on February 25. The question argued was: Re-
solved. That the United States senators should be elected by the
popular vote. The Gettysburg team of this year consisted of:
Knipple, ,ICQ jenkins, ,IOQ and Allabach, TII.
The debate deciding the championship of this year will be
held at Easton. May every loyal Gettysburg man do what he
can to encourage the team and thus help them on to another
signal victory for Gettysburg.
1 V 110
A trio of men whom the Class of 1911 may well be proud
of are seen above. In the art of debating these three men formed
for 1911 a team that the best in College could not overcome. This
team won the class championship in 1909, as well as all the prizes
offered by Dr. Gies for these debates.
Their first appearance as a team was against the Freshmen
on February 4, 1909. The question debated was: Resolved, That
the best way for a nation to promote peace is to be constantly
prepared for war. Our team defended the negative side of the
question and earned the decision of the judges.
Their next appearance was on March 17, the day of St. Pat-
rick, when the Juniors were their opponents. The question dis-
cussed was: Resolved, That the foreign policy of the United
States has impaired the efficiency of the Monroe doctrine. This
time our team defended the afhrmative, and in spite of having
two debates in the same term, showed up even better than against
the Freshmen and again earned the decision.
-The final and most severe test came on May 13, against the
Seniors. Their team was composed of three of the strongest men
in.College, and on all sides the Seniors were picked as winners
because of their superior training. Then came the test. The
question was: Resolved, That the discussion in the pulpit of
general current issues, extends the religious intiuence of the
ministry. Our team defended the negative, while the Seniors
defended the afnrmative. The Seniors were spurred on by an
excellent record back of them, while the 1911 men were now as
warriors and fought to the bitter end. Once again our team
earned a well-deserved victory and became the College champions
'This year, not being eligible for the class team. the men are
found in different activities. Riethmiller is no longer with us.
but is continuing his course at Harvard University. Bowman is
editor-in-chief of this volume, while Allabach is a member of
the college debating team that won the gold medals in the league
composed of Bucknell. Lafayette, and Gettysburg.
1911 Debating Team
Interclass Prize Debates
The inter-class debates instituted by Dr. Williaiii I. Gies. ,Q3,
were this year continued under new management. Last year
Dr. Gies announced that beginning with the 1909-IO collegiate
year he would no longer furnish the money necessary for these
inter-class debates. Once having been started, the value of these
debates was well realized and an effort was at once made to
secure the funds necessary for their continuance. At this point
the increased literary activity. very noticeable this Iyear, made
itself manifest. Through the combined efforts of the two socie-
ties the required funds were raised and the permanent continu-
ance of the debates is assured.
The value of these debates is plainly evident to all. They
awaken a more active literary spirit and afford most excellent
training in the art of public speaking and debating. That it fos-
ters intense literary activity is evident from the many debates
and literary contests held this year. Another indication of the
value of this training is shown by the success of our teams in
the Keystone Debating League. During the 'three years of this

1912 Debating Team
, lnterclass Prize Debates---Continued
league's existence, our college teams have lost but a single debate.
Our teams have won the gold medals awarded the champions for
two successive years.
The first debate of this year's inter-class series Was held in
Brua Chapel on December 14th. There was a large audience
present, and the keen rivalry existing between the two under
classes all helped to make the debate a spirited one. The Sopho-
more class was represented by Harner, Rasmussen, and Liebegott,
while Fortenbaugh, Smith, and Haberlen battled for the Fresh-
The question for debate Was: Resolved, That England's
refusal to grant Ireland home rule can be justified.
The question was Well argued on both sides and the rebuttal
was spirited. In these debates this year, instead of giving the
last speaker all the rebuttal as heretofore, the system used in the
intercollegiate debates was introduced, so that each man has a
chance in rebuttal. It is a marked improvement over the old
method. The judges rendered their decision in favor of the
Freshmen, who defended the negative. The judges were Dr. I.
A. Singmaster D. D., Rev. joseph Baker, and Archibald McClean,

lnterclass Prize Debates---Continued -
Esq. The prize of fifteen dollars was given to the Freshmen.
The second debate of the series was held in Brua Chapel on
March Sth. The Juniors opposed the Freshmen on the question:
Resolved, That labor unions should be legally incorporated.
The question was warmly argued on the negative by the
Juniors-Stouffer, Krumbine, and Davis,-while the affirmative
was handled by Fortenbaugh, Haberlen, and Smith for the Fresh-
men. The decision was rendered in favor of the affirmative. The'
debate was very close and the result was ever in doubt till the
judges rendered their decision. The prize of twenty-four dollars
was awarded the Freshmen.
The judges were Dr. M. Coover, D. P. McPherson, Esq.,
and C. E. Stahle, Esq.
The final debate ofthe series, between the Seniors and Fresh-
men, will be held some time in May, but as the Spectrum goes
to press before that time we do not know the outcome.
The Seniors will be represented by Hoshour, Bowersox, and
Herman, while the Freshmen will have the Same team.

The Greek Play
Due to the untiring efforts of Prof. Klinger and Prof. Lewars
Pennsylvania College will be able to give as a Commencement
innovation a Greek play. This novelty marks an epoch in the
history of old Gettysburg and every one of her loyal sons will
hereafter look upon her with more pride. We will be one of the
few colleges which are able to give Greek plays..
The play, which will be very ably presented, is the "An-
tigone" of Sophocles. The parts of the chorus were coached by
Prof. Lewars. The music is by Mendelssohn and it is real Greek
music suited exactly to the dancing of the chorus. The methods
of Isadore Duncan were followed in teaching the chorus to dance
Guard . .
Prof. Klinger coached the actors very ably. He took especial
pains to bc sure that he is correct in pronunciation and various
other Greek methods. The costumes will be entirely Greek and
so will the stage decorations Q?j As you will notice, in the cast
of characters there are only men actors. This is simply pursuing
S0 We'might go on singing praise to the efforts that have
been put forth, but suffice it to say that this tragedy will be
presented in' such a way as to elicit praises from the shade of
Sophocles in the murky abyss of Tartarus.

Summary of Football Season
By COACH Van.
The season just past must be regarded as the inevitable slump
which comes to all colleges sooner or later. Iaor five years Get-
tysburg has had success out of proportion to her size and though
we had fondly hoped to continue our winning streak at least one
more year, fate was against us.
Nevertheldss We have cause to congratulate ourselves. The
team though not composed of as good material as in previous
years, represented the College well, being composed of men who
were always fighting for Gettysburg until the last whistle blew.
In several games we were outclassed, but in no game were we
routed, but on the contrary usually played our best at the Hnish.
This is an important item in estimating the future, for no college
can be kept down until its spirit is broken, and our boys are
already talking of next year in a hopeful manner.
College opened later than usual and in nine days we had to
put an untrained team against the University of Pennsylvania,
and were defeated decisively, our only joy being the manner in
which the boys braced in the second half in which Penn scored
but three points.
Steelton East End were ro match for our boys but gave us
most excellent practice and we were able to try out twenty-two
Bucknell got the game by a close decision, but it was an
interesting contest played in a sportsmanlike manner and left no
bad taste. They played their best game' of the season, while ou.
team was not in its true form, nor were we able to put in our
best men. '
Lebanon Valley had to go under decisively as the team was
smarting from the Bucknell defeat, but the game was pluckily
played by the Annville team and our team was forced to play
good football. -
Delaware furnished a surprise party and scored ten points
before we realized what was happening. Then the transforma-
tion occurred. Instead of eleven Hmuddied oafs" therevwas a
team out on the sea of mud which realized that upon their team
work depended the result and how they did respond to the confi-
dence of the "rooters."
Wie started off well in the Dickinson game, but penalties pre-
vented our scoring in the first part of the game when we had
them on the run and some brilliant work by the Dickinson back-
field scored their touchdown near the close of the first half. Then
at the end of the game, with no chance to win out Gettysburg
showed her sand and at the finish was rushing the Carlisle team
off their feet, but it was too late for a rally and we failed to
Susquehanna left the Held after eighteen minutes of play
with the score 10-0 against them, because of a dispute concerning
a decision of the umpire, which disallowed a long run on account
of holding. The guilty man admitted his fault but they even
refused to return to play a practice game and so secure the guar-
antee. This occurrence is regretted by all level-headed friends
of both colleges, but their attitude in refusing to continue to play
or even to play a practice game deserves as much censure as can
be given it for it was pointed out to them that it would undoubt-
edly break off football relations. ,
It was a weak team that faced the Indians on November 17,
at Carlisle, and they knew that they were not the best team that
could be put out, but, nevertheless, they went into the game with
good spirit and repeatedly forced the Indians to punt. This game
showed the people what spirit the Gettysburg team possessed for
it is not an easy thing to do-hold the Indians time after time
with subs in the line-up and a number of the best regulars absent.
Not only did our team do this, but several times they had the
Indians on the run and only by good braces and fine playing did
they get out of some bad holes.
On Thanksgiving Day both F. Ck M. and Gettysburg had in
their strongest line-ups, but there was this essential difference in
the teams: Our boys had gone through a strenuous season in
which we met opponents who undoubtedly outclassed us, and due
to the rigors of our hard schedule we had so many injuries Qfor-
tunately minorj, that our team could never line up the same
eleven men in two consecutive games, while on the other hand
the Lancasterians had planned their whole season with but one
object in view-to beat Gettysburg-and had been able on account
of playing easier games to put forth the same team Saturday after
Saturday, and consequently benefitted on account of this finesse.
The game was well worthiseeing, and though If. Sz M. won de-
cisively, it is doubtful if they could repeat the trick as they prac-
tically had all the breaks going their way and with an even split
in luck, we would have beaten them.
Now that the football season is over it is well to learn the
lessons that we should get from looking over the season.
First thing of all. we had no Reserve team worthy of the
name, and consequently our 'Varsity missed really hard scrim-
mage practice, which is the only way to build up a team.
Another thing very noticeable was the fact that the schedule
was not adapted to the material we had and our team could not
develop as it should but had to be forced before it was ripe.
The hopeful part of the season was the spirit shown by the
team and students-the team fought hard in every game and the
students supported them to the bitter end.
It is very easy when everything goes your Way. but when you
knowingly go up against great odds and play the man, then you
really most deserve the plaudits of the World, and it is a source
of satisfaction to all friends of Gettysburg to see this good,
determined, never-say-die spirit so largely in evidence. It augurs
well for future success.

THE PENN RETURNS BUCKNELL GAME
YELL BETWEEN HALVES
The Big Games
On September 25th Gettysburg opened her 1909 football sea-
son on Franklin field against the University of Pennsylvania
team. The game was devoid of sensational 01' thrilling plays,
but the plucky game that has made Gettysburg notable on Frank-
lin field for many years was again in evidence and made the many
Gettysburg rooters proud of their team, Though pitted against
a university team which has disputed with considerable justice
the football championship of America, our team fought so hard
that their opponents were able to cross our goal line but three
times. These touchdowns with a held goal-the only score in the
second half-gave Penn a victory over us by the score of 20 to 0.
Penn won the toss and chose to defend the east goal, having
the advantage of a strong west wi11d. From their ten-yard line
the University of Pennsylvania began the game. After several
rushes the famous sprinter, Ramsdell, got away for a sixty-yard
run for a touchdown. They failed to kick goal. The second
touchdown came only after a harder fight. Penn was repeatedly
penalized for holding. Hutchison was at last forced to kick out
from behind his ow11 goal line. The Gettysburg back failed to
hold the ball and Irwin fell on it on his own thirty-yard line.
They advanced the ball to Gettysburg's seventeen-yard line,
where Gettysburg took it on downs. Gettysburg was forced to
kick. Hutchison caught the ball on the run and with excellent
interference ran from mid-Held for a touchdown. Braddock
kicked the goal. Pennis last touchdown came near the end of
the half. An on-side kick by Hutchison went past Empfield and
rolled far down the held. Hutchison took Empfield's high kick
on Gettysburg's thirty-yard line. A penalty on Gettysburg brought
the ball close to our goal line, from where a beautiful forward
pass by Miller and Cozzens took the ball over. The half end-ed
with the score: University of Pennsylvania, 17g Gettysburg, 0.
Gettysburg strengthened in the second half so that their
opponents could get nothing more than one field goal. This came
after both sides failed to advance the ball. Several exchanges of
punts left the ball on Gettysburg's thirty-yard line. Thayer tried
a drop kick and placed the oval squarely between the goal posts.
Witli this the game ended. Final score: University of Penn-
sylvania, 205 Gettysburg, 0.
lfVhat was probably the greatest game ever played on' Nixon
field-except the great 23-5' Dickinson game in IQOQ-NVZIS played
Saturday, October oth, The day was a mid-summer one and
under a scorching sun the players on both teams played as though
their very lives depended on the outcome of the game.
The game was the big event of the season in Gettysburg and
the day was a gala one for the town as well as for the college
community. To enliven the occasion and aid the cause, the Get-
tysburg band was engaged and added materially to the entertain-
ment of the crowd. The Bucknell contingent arrived at 10:23
Saturday morning, looking husky and determined.
Immediately after dinner the students began to assemble on
the campus where a line of march was formed, and then followed
the march to the square where the band awaited the procession.
After parading the town and arousing intense enthusiasm, the
return march to the Held was made. This short march in the
sun was a good means of giving those on the side lines an idea
of what it meant to the players to play a hard, fast game under
such a sweltering sun.
Bucknell won the toss-up and the game began amid a storm
of applause, with them defending the west goal. Aldinger, at
center, started a big day for himself by booting the pigskin to
the 2-yard line, whence with fine interference.Bucknell ran it
back to the 25-yard line. The visitors were soon forced to kick
and Gettysburg got the ball out of bounds in mid-field. The first
play netted Gettysburg only inches and then Smith was pushed
through the line for a gain of eleven yards and a first down. Two
penalties for off-side play on Bucknell. and several line plunges
by Smith, put the ball just five yards from the coveted goal. It
was the third down and as the Bucknell line had been doing fine
offensive work, a field goal was considered to be the most logical
play. Accordingly Phillipy' dropped back and a quick snap, fol-
lowed by a good boot netted Gettysburg 31 points soon after the
initial whistle had blown. The play then moved back and forth
without much advantage to either team till Bucknell began to
gain strength and advance the ball towards the Gettysburg goal
line. Towards the end of the half, .O'Brien, the fast little quar-
terback, who last year played with Dickinson, tied the score by a
pretty drop kick from the 30-yard line. In this half some high
punts by Bowman gave Brumbaugh a chance to do some fine
work in getting down the field and stopping the runner in his
tracks. Snyder also showed fine form in this respect, and once
"Fats" Aldinger thrilled the spectators by tearing down the field
in All-American fashion and falling on the ball just dropped by
a Bucknell man. Spectacular end runs and brilliant flying tackles
kept the interest at white heat during the entire half, and when
The Big Games---Continued
the whistle blew for time there was a sigh of relief from the side
lines as well as from the players.
In the second half the players on both sides were greatly
affected by the intense heat, yet never did any man so much as
relax a muscle that might prove fatal to his cause. Soon after
the beginning of this half, the deciding score was made. Gettys-
burg tried a forward pass that failed and the penalty of I5 yards
was imposed, which necessitated a kick. Two large gains through
Gettysburg's line followed, which put the ball on our 6-yard line.
Here Gettysburg braced and held Bucknell to 5 yards in two
downs. The final attempt was made. The ball was passed and
the moving mass swayed back and forth and to and fro till finally
all fell in a mass. The ball lay about a yard inside the line but
the officials unfortunately decided that the ball was across the

exchange of punts Gettysburg braced and began a brilliant march
down the field, but Bucknell in front of the line made it possible
for time to overtake the team and the great game ended Gettys-

On Saturday afternoon of October 30th, 1909. Gettysburg,
confident of victory, played our old rival. Dickinson, at Carlisle.
Our team was equipped and ready for a hard battle. but hardly
prepared for such surprises as Mt. Pleasant and Nebinger proved
to be. The student body expected victory and almost to a man
went over to Carlisle to back up "Old Gettysburg's" plucky team.
Both towns-people and the student body united in their enthusi-
astic support of our team and in loudly cheering them on.
Throughout the hard-fought struggle our men never showed a
white feather nor lacked grit and courage. but Dickinson's bat-
tering rains seemed to slowly but steadily prevail against our

our hearts beat fast with great hopes of victory. Vtfe felt that
Gettysburg must win against our strong rival. Gettysburg won
the toss and received the kick-off, and the excitement of the
spectators began. Hosaek made a spectacular 25-yard run on a
neat forward pass, and ten more yards were similarly added by
'l3rumbaugh. Here Dickinson was frequently penalized for hold-
ing until Gettysburg was near enough to the goal for an attempt
for a field goal, Bowman niade the try, but failed through the
ball hitting one of OI.l1' own men. Witli the ball in her possession,
Dickinson was penalicd twice and Mt. Pleasant forced to kick.

rushes and kicks. Nt. Pleasant failed at a placement kick from
the 27-yard line. After an exchange of kicks by Bowman and
Mt. Pleasant. a free catch was neatly received by the star half-
back, Nebinger. On the next play, from our 42-yard line. Neb-
inger made a sensational dash for Dickinson's first touchdown.
Their star quarterback. Mt. Pleasant. kicked the goal. All this
time the hopeful student body yelled and cheered their best.

herculean efforts were fast dealing defeat to the strong Gettys-
burg team. The first half ended with the score: Dickinson, 65
The Dickinson rooters now began to hope in real earnest for
a victory. and excitement rose to fever heat. Unfortunately.
Captain Vtfeimer had been disabled early in the first half and his
valuable work was greatly missed in the second half. However.
the team kept up the struggle till the last minute of play in spite
of great odds. Not long after play started, Nebinger, always
conspicuous. took the ball on a free catch. From the 45-yard line
Mt. Pleasant kicked a pretty goal. raising the score to Dickinson

number of substitutions were now made in a last effort to over-
come our rival, but Nebinger and Mt. Pleasant were the heart
and soul of the Dickinson team and could not be overcome. The
final score came after a fumbled kick and a hard-luck play by
our team. Nebinger again was the chief agent in scoring the
touchdown. The game ended with the score Dickinson 14. Get-
tysburg 0. but the game was lost in glory.

The annual Sophomore-Freshman football game took place
on Nixon field Monday afternoon, November 15, under ideal
weather conditions. The Sophomores scored eight points and
the Freshmen none, the eight points being divided by a safety
and a touchdown. The game was preceded by the usual eligibility
argument, but when the whistle blew both sides presented their
announced line-up. The event was enlivened by Seniors and
graduates providing amusement for the spectators additional to
the game. Besides several men who braved public opinion by
appearing in pajamas, nearly every man in the Senior class ap-
peared on the Held in a parade in straw hats and other out-of-
season wearing apparel. In the impromptu mix-up that took

The game was a contest of Freshman beef and Sophomore
brains. The play the nrst half was almost entirely in Freshman
territorv, but the Sophs were unable to take the ball over. Sev-

under the posts. From this point ony an attempted end run the

The fighting was stubborn but clean and it was only in the last
minute of play that the Sophs got their touchdown and' Sincell
kicked the goal, making the score Sophomores 8, Freshmen 0.

BY COACH VA11.
The season opened very poorly for us, as our men were un-
acquainted with each other's style of play and had three hard
games in quick succession.
As the season advancql the confidence of the College was
justified, for when the team struck their gait they played as fast
basketball as has been seen on the local floor.
From the very start the motto of the players was "team work
all the time." "No attempts to star" produced a hard-Working,
smoothly playing aggregation which earned the respect of every
team it played after getting shaken together.
Our first game was with the University of Pennsylvania at
Philadelphia, Saturday, january 8, and they had no difficulty in
running up a 38-11 score on us. F. and M. beat us at Lancaster
38-26 on Monday, and the York team gave us another defeat,
32-12, on Tuesday. Fortunately we had 'ten days in which to
repair our broken machine before we played our first home game,
in which we beat the Indians 35-25. In succession, Baltimore
Meds. 40-II, Dickinson 46-18, and Albright 33-17, fell before our
On a trip north we lost to Dickinson 24-26, to Bucknell 18-26,
and the Indians 17-36, but came back strong for our final game
at Gettysburg when We scored 46-17 on Bucknell. In this game
our team work was superbg time after time the ball would be
caged inside of a few seconds of the toss-up. This was the last
game for Gettysburg for Bream, Bell, Baughman, and McCarney,
and they never played more brilliantly.
Captain Bream, '10, played center most of the season, though
he was started at guard. "Shanghai" was a hard WOl'lCC1' Hllfl
deserves credit for his unselfish playing. He improved greatly
as the season advanced and in his last game reached the climax
of his career.
Bell, '10, at forward was a terror to opposing guards as a
scorer and was also one of our best floor workers. I-Iis place
will be hard to fill.
Baughman, ,IO, was a find. He also found the basket quite
frequently. He was handicapped by thefact that all his playing
heretofore had been on the home floor but he certainly knew
McCarney, '10, was the lightest man on the squad but was
very fast and heady. Handicapped by injuries, he played a re-
markable game at times. 1
Fluhrer, '12, learned the game at the York High School and
was an especially good dribbler and passer. He was a hard
worker and full of determination.
Brumbaugh, ,I2, played on the Northeast Manual Training
School team of Philadelphia and was an old head at the game.
He was a swell dribbler and passer and an especially unselfish
team worker. It never mattered to "Brummy" who got the goal.
he was after two more points for Gettysburg. VVinning or losing
he was always there with the goods.
Rudisill, '12, developed well toward the close of the season
and should make a strong defence man before graduation. He
takes coaching well and is content to keep in the background and
follow his plans implicitly.
Snyder, '09, was determined to keep out of basketball, but
our bad start got on his nerves, so he buckled on his harness
again and solved our defense problem with his long reach and
Johnny-on-the-spot methods. VVell, that's just like Snyder. He
is Hlled with -the true Gettysburg spirit and his unselfish love of
the "old college", together with his ability, have won the esteem
Manager Yohn was terribly handicapped by his late election,
which necessitated scheduling some games' as he could, not as he
would, but he is to be congratulated on the way the season turned
out, on the games which counted. His only regret is that,I7. and
M. was unable to play us a return game. The scheduling of the
two practice games with the Indian First and Second teams of
Carlisle was a wise move even though we lost by decisive scores,
as it gave our men practice on a strange, large floor.

This year the Tnter-class basketball games were playtd ac-
cording to a schedule arranged differently from that of preceding
years. Instead of a series of six games in which each class in
college played every other class, a series of three games was
arranged whereby the winners of the first game, which was
played between the two lower classes. were entitled to play the
Juniors, and the winners of this game were entitled to play the
Seniors for the championship of the College.
As usual the games were marked by fast playing and an
abundance of class spirit. The first game was played on March 9
between the Freshmen and the Sophomores. The game was well
played by both teams, but the Freshmen were easily outclassed
and lost by a score of 28-S.
of IQ to
This vicory by the Sophomores entitled them to play the
juniors. This game was played March II. Throughout the
whole game the Sophomores scored almost at will, while the best
the Juniors could do was five goals from fouls. The game ended
48-5 in favor of the Sophomores.
The third and final contest of the series was held on March
18 between the Sophomores and tl1e Seniors. As the Senior team
had held the championship of the College for two years and was
composed of 'Varsity men, it was looked upon as a probable
winner, although a close game was anticipated. The game was
fast and hard-fought from beginning to end, and closed by a score
of 46-25 in favor of the Sophomores, thus giving them the undis-
puted championship of the College for the season of 19110.

Review of Track--Season of 1909
Rv KIANMJER HLINGER ,
Gettysburg's third year in track gave very satisfactory re-
sults. Since the construction of our new track this branch of
athletics has taken on renewed activity, and considering the diffi-
culties under which the team worked, the results were very grati-
fying. During the year some new equipment has been added and
a general increase in the interest of track was manifested.
Under the able captaincy of C. L. S. Raby the team was
given more systematic training than ever before and with it came
a higher degree of efticiency. For the first time in the history
of track, Gettysburg met a number of other colleges in regular
scheduled track and field meets.
The first event of the season was the annual relay race, at
University of Pennsylvania, on Franklin lield, April 24. Gettys-
burg was represented by a relay team, and considering the odds
against which the team worked. made a good showing. XVe were
classed with Ursinus, College of the City of New York, St. John's
of Annapolis, Pratt Institute, VVest Chester Normal, Maryland
Agricultural, and St. johns of Brooklyn.
The result of the races was as follows: Pratt Institute, first,
Maryland Agricultural, second, College of City of New York,
third, and Gettysburg, fourth.
The real work of the season for the entire track scluad, began
on Tuesday, May II, in the inter-class meet, held as a preliminary
to the Bucknell and Juniata meets. This contest resulted in many
surprises. The juniors won with a total of 38M points. The
Freshmen came second with 30, while the Seniors, Sophs and
Preps followed with 20, 13. and I5 points respectively. V
On Saturday, May 15, Gettysburg met Bucknell on Nixon

with a score of 71 to 33.

of 55M to 525.

colleges of the state were represented. The teamvfrom Gettys-

This closed the season of 1909, and although our record
shows no victories, the year registers a marked advance in track
work. Every year track is becoming more popular, and the spirit
manifested shows that track work has come to stay.

Review of Tennis Season of 1909
BY H. F. BAUGHMAN, Manager.
That interest in tennis is increasing is shown by the increased
number of entries this year in the annual tournament. More
men were entered in the singles and doubles than have been en-
tered for some time past. The action of the Board of Trustees
in shortening the term by one week greatly handicapped those
interest-ed in this sport. It kept several of our good players out
of the Swarthmore and Dickinson tournaments, which would have
been won had we had fresh men to- put in all the matches, because
examinations were on at the time of these tournments. Viewed
in terms of victories won the season was not a success, because
Gettysburg did not win any of the inter-collegiate tournamentts.
But in view of the amount of interest taken and the earnest
efforts on the part of the players to make the season successful
the result was all that could be desired. Our men played all their
matches hard and never gave' up until the last ball was knocked
aoross the netg they acted as true sportsmen and represented the

The Gettysburg College Press Club is the outcome of a sug-
gestion by,Coach Fred C. Vail. Until the Pall of r9o9 all news
concerning the students was handled by one man who was chosen
for this position by the athletic association. The coach suggested
a more definite plan, as this seemed to be a large amount of work
for one man. He began corresponding during the summer and
by the time College opened, plans were under Way for the forma-
tion of a Press Club. A few days after the commencement of
the Fall term, a number of the fellows met, the coach outlined
his plan, and a permanent organization was effected.
The Press Club aims to govern the issuance of all reportorial
news of the College so that only correct statements about the
students or student organizations shall find their way to the col-
umns of the daily newspapers. The usual difficulty of launching
a new project was encountered and it will be several years before
President . .

In addition to this fundamental feature, the Press Club has
endeavored to give the students an opportunity to enjoy advan-
tages -which would be practical impossibilities if it were not 'for
the existence of an organization such as this. On Thursday,
January 27, 19ro,,Mr. George M. Graham, sporting editor of the
Philadelphia North.An1erican, was kind enough to come here and
give his .talk 'Sport Science" to the students free of charge.
April 12, 1910, the Ben Greet Players, of national reputation, gave
two performances,-Merchant of Venice, and Twelfth Night,-
under the auspices of the club. An effort will be made each year
to secure attractions of a similar nature.

President Taft's Visit
May 31. 1909. was a memorable day for Gettysburg Memor-
ial Day in Gettysburg always has a peculiar interest attached to
it. but this year it was an exceptionally interesting occasion, being
the date set by the United States government for the dedication
of the splendid monument, erected on the battlefield, in memory
of the Regulars of the United States Army, who were engaged
in the three days' battle of 1863. As the ceremony was conducted
by the national government. it was arranged that the nations
Chief Executive and part of the Regular Army should be present.
For several days prior to the dedication, national troops were
pouring into the historic town, which was preparing for a gala
day in its history. Visitors were also pouring into town in great
crowds. so that by the morning of the 31st Gettysburg was amply
prepared to extend a royal welcome to President Taft and his
The President's train arrived at IO A. M. over the 'Western
Maryland Railroad. He was met at the station by the Battlefield
Commission and- the Fifteenth United States Infantry under
command of Colonel Cowles. During the forenoon the Presi-
dent's party made a tour of the battlefield. and at 2 P. M. the
imposing ceremonies of the day were begun. Addresses were
delivered by Assistant Secretary of War Dickinson and Lieuten-
ant-Colonel Nicholson, but the main features of the day were the
unveiling of the monument by Miss Helen H. Taft and the
address by President Taft. At the 'conclusion of the dedication
exercises the President reviewed the 3,000 Regulars, who marched
by the reviewing stand in imposing array.
The review completed, the President's party hurried to the
train under escort of a troop of United States cavalry, but before
leaving, President Taft gave a brief tallc to a number of Gettys-
burg College students who had gathered at the train. The Presi-
dent left for VVashington at 3 :45 P. M. Thus closed the exercises
of one of the most eventful days in the history of Gettysburg
since 1863, and the occasion will long be remembered by those
Through the courtesy of President.Taft we are enabled to
reproduce his oration.
ADDRESS OTE THE PRESIDENT AT GETTYSBURG
May 31, IQOQ
We are gathered at this historic spot today to dedicate a
monument to the memory of the officers and the enlisted men ot
the Regular Army who gave up their lives for their country in
the three days' battle. lt is but a tardy recognition of the Na-
tionis debt to its brave defenders whose allegiance was purely to
the Nation. without local color or strengthening of State or
The President and His Daughter
The danger of a standing army, entertained by our ancestors,
is seen in the constitutional restrictions and the complaints regis-
tered in the Declaration of Independence. It has always been
easy to awaken prejudice against the possible aggressions of a
regular army and a professional soldiery, and correspondingly
difficult to create among the people that love or pride in the army
which we find today and frequently in the history of the country
aroused on behalf of the navy. This has led to a varied and
changeable policy in respect to the regular army. At times it
has been reduced to almost nothing. In 1784, there were but
eighty men who constituted the regular army of the United States,
and of these Battery F of the Fourth Artillery were fifty-five of
themg but generally the absolute necessities in the defense of the
country against the small wars, which embrace so large a part of
our history, have induced the maintenance of a regular force.
small to be sure, but one so well trained and effective as always
to reflect c1'edit upon the Nation.
In the 'War of I8I2, had we had a regular army of 10.000
men, trained as such an army would have been, we should have
been spared the humiliation of the numerous levies of untrained
troops and the enormous expense of raising an army of 400,000
or 500,000 men, because with an effective force of 10,000 men, we
might have promptly captured Canada and ended the war.
The service rendered by the regular army in the Mexican
War was far greater in proportion than that which it rendered in
the Civil Wa1'. and the success which attended the campaigns of
Taylor and Scott were largely due to that body of men.
To the little army of 2S.OOO men that survived the Civil War,
we owe the opening up of the entire western country. The haro
ships and the trials of frontier Indian campaigns, which made
possible the construction of the Pacific railroads, have never been
fully recognized by our people, and the bravery and courage and
economy of force compared with the task performed shown bv
our regular troops have never been adequately commemorated by
Congress or the Nation.
Todav. as a result of the Spanish War. the added responsi-
bilities of our new dependencies in the Philippines. Porto Rico.
and for some time in Cuba, together with a sense of the import-
ance of our position as a world power. have led to the increase
in our regular army to a larger force than ever before in the
history of the country, but not larger in proportion to the increase
in population and wealth than in the early years of the Republic.
Tt should not be reduced.
The profession of arms has always been an honorable one.
and under conditions of modern warfare, it has become highly
technical and requires years of experience and studv to adapt the
odicers and men to its requirements. The general purpose of

At Wfest Point, we have been able to prepare a body of pro-
fessional soldiers, well trained. to ofhcer an army. and numerous
enough at the opening of the Civil War to give able commanders
to both sides of that internecine strife.
Upon the side of the No1'th many of the officers were drafted
to command the volunteer troops from the States, while the
regular army aggregating about 10,000 men at the opening of the
war. was increased to about 25.000 during its Hrst year. More
than half this army was engaged in the Battle of Gettysburg:
eleven regiments of infantry, five regiments of cavalry, twenty-six
batteries of artillery, and three battalions of engineers. The
infantry of the regular army was embraced in two brigades of
the Third Division of the Fifth Corps under Maior General
Sykes, himself a most able regular army officer. The cavalry
was included in a Reserve Division under General Merritt. and
the batteries were distributed among the various army corps of
the entire Federal force.
Two of the most important and determining crises of the
three days' battle were. first. the seizure of the Round Tops and
the maintenance of the Federal control over that great point of
vantage. the possession of which by the Confederate forces would
have taken the whole Federal line in the reverse: and the second
was the resistance to Pickettls charge on the third day of the
battle when the high point in the Confederate advance into Penn-
sylvania was turned, and Lee was defeated and hurried back into
Southern territory. never again to plant his Confederate battle-
Hags on Northern soil. The taking of the Round Tops and the
driving back of the Confederate forces was the work of Sykes'
Fifth Army Corps. and especially of the two brigades of the
Regular infantry regiments. in which in killed and Wounded alone
the regulars lost twenty per cent of their full number. and some
of their brigades. notably Burbank's, lost sixty per cent in killed
and wounded of the men engaged. With a desperate bravery
worthy of the cause. they drove back the Confederate forces and
enabled General Meade to unite the left of Sickles' Third Corps
with the right of the Fifth Army Corps, and thus presented a
shorter but a tirmer front with which to withstand the onslaught
of Leels army upon the third day.
Wiitlioiit invidious comparison and in no way detractinff from
the courage and glory of the other branches of the service who
united to resist Pickettls charge, it is well known that much of
the effective resistance was by the artillery. The batteries of the
regulars and volunteers under General Hunt made the resistance
to that awful charge that gave the victory to the Union forces.
The soul of Cushing, in charge of Battery F. Fourth Artillery,
went up with the smoke of the last shots which sent Pickett's
men reeling back from the point now marked as the high tide of
Time does not permit me to mention the names of the heroes
of the regular army whose blood stained this historic Field, and
whose sacrifices made the Union victory possible. VVith my inti-
mate knowledge of the regular army, their high standard of duty.
their efheiency as soldiers, their high character as men, I have
seized this opportunity to come here to testify to the pride which
the Nation should have in its regular army, and to dedicate this
monument to the predecessors of the present regular army, on a
Field in which they won undying glory and perpetual gratitude
from the Nation which they served. They had not the local
associations, they had not the friends and neighbors of the vol-
unteer forces to see to it that their deeds of valor were properly
recorded and the value of their services suitably noted in the
official records by legislation and Congressional action, and they
have now to depend upon the truth of history and in the cold,
calm retrospect of the war as it was, to secure from Congress
this suitable memo1'ial of the work in the saving of the country
which they wrought here.
All honor to the Regular Army of the United States! Never
in its history has it had a stain upon its escutceon. NfVith no one
to blow its trumpets. with no local feeling or pride to bring forth
its merits, quietly and as befits a force organized to maintain
civil institutions and subject always to the civil control, it has
gone on doing' the duty which it was its to do, accepting without
a murmur the dangers of war, whether upon the trackless
stretches of our western frontier, exposed to the arrows and
bullets of the Indian, or in the jungles and rice paddies of the
Philippines, on the hills and in the valleys about Santiago in
Cuba, or in the tremendous campaigns of the Civil War itself,
and it has never failed to make a record of duty done that should
satisfy the most exacting lover of his country.
It now becomes my pleasant duty to dedicate this monument
to the memory of the regular soldiers of the Republic who gave
up their lives at Gettysburg and who contributed in a large degree
to the victory of those three fateful days in the countryls history.

My ideal man is perfectly grand-looking. Keen clothes, just
about to graduate from college and a wonder in Chemistry.
When T marry, it will be fifty million dollarsg I don't care
what his other name is.
There are no characteristics l would demand in my ideal
except that his name must be MeCaw.
My ideal man must be that nice kind, don't you know, and
a sweet singer. Critically yours,
My ideal will have to be an honor man and sport the dearest
little cane you ever saw. He dare not fear the tan of the balmy
South. Yours soulfully,
After much consideration I.hz1ve decided that my ideal man
must be artistic and musical. He 'must be a good singer above
all else. Cautiously yours,
My ideal man must be kind and gentle. He must use good
language. He dare not be a baseball shark.
Light hair and blue eyes for mine, or single blessedness.

And let your mortal friends go to 'l'artareus,
VVhilst one is sipping ripe-dripping nectareous juice
That in rills gushing spills and fast fills gold goblets
of Zeus! .
