NUMBER of years ago at Sterling, Whiteside County, Illinois, was born R. R. Ebersole,
the one who was destined to be president of the class of 1905, At the age of seven he
moved with his folks to a farm in Adams County, Nebraska, where he lived until 1898
when he again returned to Sterling, Illinois. Here he joined himself to several different
citizens of that county as a farm hand. While on the farm he saw what education was doing
for others and great ambitions began to arise in the heart of this rustic lad, and at the age
of twenty-two he started for Elkhart Institute and has been in school ever since.
His school career has not been that of dash and brilliancy, but his steady progress in
every line makes us believe it is a good thing to be slow but sure. He has held important
positions in the school. This year he is leader of the Volunteer Band, Gymnasium Director
and leader of the Advanced Mission Study Class, also President of the Class of '05, He did
creditable work in the Language and Philosophy Departments and was an active and
efficient worker in the literary and musical activities of the school.
What he will do in the future remains to be seen. For a few years, however, he may be
found teaching school some where in the country. After that wherever he may be, we feel
conhdent that he will be laboring zealously and unseltishly for the betterment of humanity.
'tDu bist wie eine Blume."-Lena Landis.
ESSE STUTSMAN was born and reared in the vicinity of Goshen. He
attended rural school from the age of six to sixteen. Since that time he has
been alternately engaged in attending school or in teaching rural schools.
His education has been somewhat varied. He attended DePauw in 1896-'97,
Goshen High School, '98-'00, Elkhart Institute Normal, 19009 Goshen College,
1903-05. He is a persevering and studious young man, and perfectly able
to take care of himself.
Not content with intellectual training he has even become skilled in manual
training and during the summer months he carries on this work. It may be of
interest to his friends to know that he is a painter by trade.
We have never learned of his future plans and prospects but we predict for
him a successful career in Whatever he may undertake.
DNA HOLDEMAN, the book-worm of the Class of 1905, was reared in the
Hoosier state. Her early life was very simple. She cared nothing Whatever
for childish sports, but spent her time reading. She attended the country
school until the age of eighteen, when she made her first attempt teaching in the
district school. The attempt having proved successful she continued teaching
school. Her summers were spent at the Indiana University studying English and
the Sciences. During this time she has spent her spare moments in reading and
studying and now has completed her six years' course at Goshen College. She took
great interest and manifested great enthusiasm in her school work, which she
Miss Holdeman is of a quiet disposition. She meets the problems of life one by
one as they confront her. As she stands on the threshold of life and looks out upon
the broad expanse, she says, "my work is to help others reach the highest aim pos-A
sible." The future to her is a mystery. No profession has she chosen as yet, but in
coming years she may be found teaching some of the Sciences.
She strove the neighborhood to please.-Miss Hess.
YDIA LIECHTY, the junior member of our class, is a native of Sterling,
Ohio. At the age of fifteen, she was left without parents, but her education
continued under the direction of her brother, and in 1901 she was graduated
from the Sterling High School.
Her disposition is quiet, thoughtful and energetic. Even when a child, she
did not care to play, but spent most of her time in reading or in helping what she
could about the house.
In 1902 she entered Elkhart Institute and has been in school ever since. Being
diligent and conscientious in her school work, every lesson unlearned brought
pangs of remorse and worry, and then on the other hand, every difficulty con-
quered brought her new joy and courage.
Her work in the Y. P. C. A. deserves special mention. She has proved to be a
woman of financial and executive ability, being treasurer of this organization in
1904, and president in 1905. While engaged in the work she received convictions
for missionary work. In the near future she may be found with the antipodes.
OHN S. UMBLE began life's uncertain journey on the banks of Buffalo Creek,
near Kelly Point, Union County, Pa., in the early 80's. Since then he has
been successively a Jay-Hawker, a Buckeye, and a Hoosier, but claims to be
an adopted son of the great commonwealth of Ohio. He has twice visited Michi-
gan, Kentucky, Illinois and Wisconsin, and has spent some time in Missouri,
Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. Between times he has contrived to complete
the common school curiculum, finish a high school course, graduate from the Elk-
hart Institute, and attend Wooster University in 1901 and Goshen College during
the present college year. Two years were spent, with more or less success, in per-
petrating various pedagogical methods on the young idea of Salem Township,
Champaign County, Ohio, first in a rural school and the second year in King's
Creek Grammar School. His most serious effort this year has been in the educa-
tion and language departments and in the Aurora Literary Society. His work as
assistant in English excited favorable comment and shows that his future in the
educational world is not altogether a matter of mere speculation. The years ,06
and '07 will find him at home and abroad preparing for teaching German.
A Present help in time of trouble.-Preceptress.
AUL E. WHITMER. About a quarter of a century ago Paul E. Whitmer
was born in Mahoning County, Ohio, where he grew to manhood. He lived
on a farm until he entered school. However numerous and complicated the
details of his youth may have been, they were such that moulded a character of
which the class of 1905 may well be proud. As early as 1896 he attended the High
School at N. Lima, Ohio. The following years he taught both in district and
grammar schools, after which he attended school at Ada, Ohio, at the Elkhart
Institute, at Oberlin College and at Goshen College. During this period of train-
ing occurred the most important event of his life, the results of which follow him
daily and especially on the Sabbath. In 1901 he entered the ministerial profession.
The hardships connected with his profession, only brought to prominence the
precious jewels hidden in his life. Paul's life might be discussed from various
standpoints. He is witty. He is humorous. He is queer. Mr. Whitmer is one of the
Coming Men of America. He has been very loyal to his society in which he won
fame as a debater. In years to come he will be found within the walls of our Alma
Maier advancing theological theories and expounding the Word.
YDIA BELLE STUTZMAN. Toward the close of the nineteenth century, in
the Buckeye State was born one who was destined to be the Belle of the Class of
1905. She spent the greater part of her life with her parents on the farm. No-
mansion was large enough, and no yard green enough for this energetic little body.
No task was too difficult for her to undertake. Every fence, hill, stump and tree in
her reach she could climb. Skipping, running, jumping and laughing, are the most.
marked characteristics of her early life. But she soon laid aside these childish
things and searched for the hidden mysteries in sciences, mastered the Romans,
the English, the Germans, the Greeks, and crossed the Rubicon with Caesar. In
the year 1899 Lydia Belle Stutzman graduated from Glover Collegiate Institute.
The following year she taught in public schools in Ohio, after which she was allied
with the Elkhart Institute, Qnow Goshen College,j where she completed her college
work. Here she held the position of student, assistant instructor and assistant libra-
rian, Miss Stutzman has a bright future before her. Her smiling countenance, here
sparkling blue eyes, her sympathetic touch and her charming voice win the confi-
dence of people, and she will exert an influence that will tend toward the develop-
ment of the physical, the intellectual and the spiritual life of man.
He was so queer.-M. E. Hess.

HE Tennis Association of Goshen College was organized
in 1903. Its membership includes both men and
women of the school who are interested in the game.
Three good courts are kept in condition on the Campus
and are in constant use during the Tennis season. The
Association keeps up the grounds and nets. During the past
year it has also furnished balls and racquets for the young
women. The young men supply their own racquets. In-
creased interest is added to Tennis by the Tournament held
in June of each year. The lists are open to all students or
faculty members of the Association. During the season of
1904, the winner in the Singles for the students was M. E.
Hess. The Doubles were not played to the Bnals. In the
future, two Tournaments will be played each year4one for the young men and one for the young women,
Tennis is a delightful pastime as well as an invigorating exercise. The Tennis Association is to be con-
gratulated for the interest It has aroused in this form of physical training.

URELY the history of Goshen College for the year 1904 and '05 would be incomplete were not mention made
of some of the wonderful acts and achievements of the Athletic Association. The membership of this
organization consists of young men of the College, who are desirous of developing their physical bodies,
.and at the same time adding to the sum total of school pleasures.
Athletics have gained a prominent place in the Colleges and Universities of our country,and it is in accordance
with this idea that the faculty encourages the student to devote a limited portion of his time to athletics of some
kind. We are beginning more and more to see that the bookworm is a despicable creature, and that the young
man who wishes to make the most oi his school days dare not neglect physical exercise. If he does, he does it at
the expense of the most valuable possession, namely a strong, vigorous body. The purpose then, of this organi-
zation, as the name would suggest, is to provide ways and means for physical exercise. The means employed to
attain this end during the fall and spring months, are out-door games, such as base ball, basket ball and track
events, and gymnasium work during the Winter months.
Athletic interests are perhaps at their best during the spring months, with base ball as the center of
attraction. Mention might be made of some of the best players, but suffice it to say that with continued practice
and persistent effort our boys will be able to do good work
During the winter months out-door Work is suspended and athletics center in gymnasium Work. There
the Work consists of regular class drills in dumb-bell exercises and body movements, under the direction of a
competent instructor. The facilities for individual work on the trapese, ladder, spring-board and mats are also
good and much beneht is derived from them. In-door basket ball is by no means the least enjoyable of the games
that take place in the Gymnasium. From the above, one may see that athletics do have aplace in Goshen College,
while perhaps not as prominent as in some other colleges, yet the student who wishes to devote a reasonable amount
of time to physical exercise, can find ample opportunity to do so if he wishes to take advantage of the privilege.
Not dead but sleeping.-College Juniors
O, Dorm, yes thou hast sheltered
Maidens, many in this past yearg
Thou also hast given much pleasure
To those who have gathered here.
If thou couldst unfold thy own story,
XVhat wonders might be revealed
Of homesick tears and of festal spreads
That thy walls have so kindly concealed.
We hear in the chambers about us
.Toyous laughter, sounds woeful and strange,
We know 'tis the battle of pillows,
The matron's soft footstep, and presto a change.
Then sometimes a pitiful voice
Is heard echoing thru the hall,
Calling "Father! Father! Father!"
But Elocution is the cause of it all.
Between the dark and the daylight,
'Ere the night has seemed very long,
There comes to disturb our slumbers
What is known as the rising gong.
No time is left for slumber
When that clamorous peal is heard,
For often when girls have tried it,
They were absent when breakfast occurred.
Mrs. B. F. Thut, Matron.
Then often, O, how often,
In the days that have gone by,
Did we hear that bell at meal-time,
Telling us all to draw nigh.
Round the festal board all were gather
Spread with beef and potato-mash,
Crackers and gravy, yes and pie
But nothing there excelled the hash.
"O, I forgot?-Fannie Rupp.
O, gentle reader, think not
That these things are our highest goal,
For our studies are very enticing,
When we've returned from the evening stroll
Yes, Dorm, thou hast given us pleasures,
And friendships both loyal and trueg
Hours quiet, talks helpful and good,
Which memory will bring out anew.
Then what are all our contrivings
And the wisdom of our books,
When compared with loyal friendships,
And the gladness of your looks.
And to thee, dear matron, we owe,
Our highest respect and esteem
For thy love and untiring efforts
Will help us in stemming life's stream.
And forever and forever,
As long as the College grows,
As long as teachers have troubles,
As long as students woes,
There will be a Dormitory,
And a matron hovering near,
To guard all youthful maidens,
NVho are found sojourning here.
Young People's Christian Association.
N reflecting over the various features of our student life in the past year, surely not least prominent among our
reminiscences are those associated with the Y. P. C. A. and its noble work. The lofty purpose of the organi-
zation and the effective and dignified manner in which its promoters by the force of their characters and
their faith in the imminent powers of the God they served, have succeeded in making the work of the Association
fulfill its intended purpose,have associated with them memories of strong and permanent impulses toward the reali-
zation of our best possibilities and toward sacrifice for the welfare of others. There are memories of inspirations
received from contact with those whose lives overiiow with the good, true and beautiful. There are memories
of religious meetings in which devoted hearts gave expression to lofty and holy ideals of Christian living and
service. There are memories of services received and services rendered which bound us closer together in the
common cause which is intended to be one of mutual help in the effort to attain that which is of supreme value
in human life, namely: fullness of life in Christ.
While our coming together at an institution of learning is primarily for intellectual ends, yet our close
contact with each other as students affords grand opportunity for united effort and mutual help in enjoying and
developing our religious lives, as well as uniting in helping others. In order best to take advantage of these
opportunities the Christian students of the College are organized into the Young People's Christian Association,
whose object as defined in its Constitution is to unite all students who desire to strengthen the spiritual life and
iniiuence of the Collegeg to promote growth in Christian character and fellowship, and aggressive Christian
work especially by and for students, to retain its members for Christian service and lead them to devote their
lives to Jesus Christ where they can accomplish the most for the extension of the Kingdom of God. This object
is attained through the work of the various committees representing the several departments of the Association
work, which are united under the direction of the executive officers and the cabinet of the Association.
It is gratifying to all who are connected with and interested in the movement, to note to what extent the
work of the past year has accomplished the defined object of the organization. One of the most important
departments of the work is that represented by the devotional committee, which provides for and arranges all
religious meetings of the Association. The Thursday afternoon devotional meetings have been more than usually
marked for their evidence of the strong devotional spirit of the student body. In these meetings the students
met for united devotion and in addition discussed subjects of practical and daily importance in Christian living.
In order to train Christian students in Bible knowledge and to deepen and strengthen their spiritual lives, the
Association offers, and urges all of its members to take, courses in systematic daily Bible study. These courses

EI-IGLD lt came to pass on the fourth watch of the fifth day of the month whlch IS called October 1n the
year 1904 that the Avon S1sters d1d come together rn therr promlsed land to afrarn take up thelr chosen
work They had betaken themselves to thexr several places of abode to renew the1r strength thus when
they returned they could mount up w1th wmgs as eagles When they d1d come back they came as sheep w1th
out a shepherd, they were rn need of a leader, yea a presldent, ver1ly wlthout hesrtatron they d1d assemble
themselves together and chose Carrre for a leader Although she was not much learned 1n th1s work yet she
took upon herself the burden and sard Hear drhgentlv my speech and my declarat1on wlth your ears What ye
know the same do I know also nerther am I 1nfer1or rather equal unto you '
In the begxnnlng there was work, and the Avons drlrfrently wrought the work, and through 1t came l1fe
Th1s l1fe was the lwht of a number of young women of Goshen College Grace, the daughter of mus1c, d1d
much s1nff1n0f rn th1s beormmnor but her father sought another place for them to dwell, hence they d1d travel
over mountams and through valleys ruto the crty of Lancaster
Now rt came to pass that a player, Bertha, came to the land of Goshen to seek more knowledge of mus1c,
for surely the Ax ons could not do wrthout a musrclan

HE Vesper Belles which have been pealing forth their mellow chimes for four years have this year blended into
chords that are more harmonious than ever. The Vesperian Society was organized Oct. 7, 1901. Its pur-
pose was to 'timprove powers of thought and expression and to cultivate social qualities, thereby making its
members more proficient for future work." It is with pardonable pride that the Society looks over its past
records and notes that from her roll have been selected many who aregnow holding positions of trust throughout
the world. Two have crossed the briny deep to enter the mission Held and one is at present a member of the
faculty of Goshen College, while others are filling equally useful places. Among its members will always be
found those who are prominent in every line of activity. The history of the society has been one of continuous
growth and the organization has won for itself a high rank.
The Society was larger this year than any preceding. year, the total enrollment being 35. The various
offices were filled by competent persons as the condition of the society indicates. The Presidents for this year
were, Amanda Ebersole, Lydia Liechty, Kate Blosser, Mary Yoder, Lena Landis and Mary Ebersole.
The Society has distinguished itself along different lines of literary work, but the musical talent that
was displayed is worthy of special mention. The program rendered in May was an index to their originality,
imagination, oratory and musical ability. The entire program was given by the young women of this Society,
and was the first of its kind ever given in Goshen College. During the past year the Vesperians have experi-
enced an unprecedented success in the line of literary development and have added to their enrollment those who-
will maintain the spirit of the Society and supplement its glorious past with a no less glorious future. And
although the work of the Vesperians has been successful they are not satisfied but are striving to reach higher
development, and they constantly keep before them their motto, f'Excelsior."

URORA'S beams have shone With their wonted brilliancy and splendor during the present College year. The literary work
has been strong and helpful and has been characterized thruout by a virile strenuosity and painstaking thoroness.
Debating has been a prominent feature of the work of the society during the entire year, special attention being given to
matter for debate, the collection of material, the preparation of briefs, and stage forms, Questions of current interest, of
national and international importance have been discussed, and men who have never before been interested in formal debate
have been among those who have taken the greatest delight in the work and have shown the most marked improvement.
During the opening weeks of the Fall term rules of parliamentary procedure were taught, class drills in parliamentary
law were conducted by Ebersole and Umble, and every member was furnished with a working knowledge of the subject.
Interest in this work was kept up thruout the year by sharp, spirited parliamentary contests held at frequent intervals.
The composition and delivery of orations engaged considerable attention in the latter half of the year. I. Y. Miller,
Holmes, Moore and M. E. Hess deserve special mention in this connection.
Impromptu work has received its share of attention and some excellent extemporaneous addresses have been delivered.
Considerable time has been devoted to music. Aurora men have appeared on public program in solo, quartette, octette and
chorus numbers. On the All-Aurora program given in April, the five orations and addresses and the three musical numbers
were all given by Aurora men. The society's Work in music has been somewhat handicapped by M. H. Hostetler's enforced
absence from school after the Christmas holidays and his fine bass voice has been missed. J. R. Shank also left school for Pal-
myra, Mo., after he had been ordained to the ministry in March, and thereby the society lost an excellent tenor voice.
One of the pleasantest features of the literary work this year was the feeling of hearty good-will and good fellowship-
existing between the two young men's societies. This feeling has been aroused and maintained by clean soliciting, a con-joint
program March 24, and friendlyabut spirited rivalry in literary work. Our work with the ladies' societies, too, has been a source
of great pleasure and benefit both in a literary and social way. The Aurora Society is organized principally for literary purposes,
but incidentally there has this year been much opportunity for the development of the business faculty and for manual training.
The Aurora Hallis beautifully decorated and has become a place fitted to be the home of a progressive, hard-working society. But
the crowning effort of the Aurora Society for this year is an arched entrance over the driveway leading to Goshen College. The
success of this project is largely due to the patient, persevering industry and pluck of A. P. Hess and J. F. Ebersole.
The plans for the structure drawn by Hess appear below.

C. M. A. Literary Society.
HE banner year in the history of our Society! Our membership has been doubled, our literary work has
been substantial and has enabled us to retain our former reputation among students, faculty and public,
f every member of the Society from the humblest beginner to the exalted senior has performed his work
thoroughly. Thus we may truthfully assert without the slightest hesitation that the record of the past year
has not been surpassed in growth or in efficiency of literary production, and that our members are pressing
forward with the same undaunted courage and persistency which characterizes our past.
A It is with pardonable pride that we look over the annals of our Society to note that those who during
their school days were identified with its progress have since been selected for positions of trust and honor in
the numerous vocations of life, but not alone does a retrospective view supply us with animation, for our present
Outlook is prophetic of yet greater achievements.
As heretofore, the debate has been made a prominent feature in literary effort, and many of our recent
members who have never before participated in formal argument acquitted themselves in a creditable manner
thruout the year. A more comprehensive knowledge of parlaimentary law has been attained by a series of dis-
cussions conducted by various members of the Society.
' The musical talent has not been neglected but its development has eclipsed even our expectations. We
refer to the C. M. A. Octette. Our social relations with all the other societies have also been most agreeable
and enjoyable, for we were favored upon several occasions by both the Avon and Vesperian ladies with invita-
tions to programmes, and especially will every C. M. A long remember the sleighride given us by the Vesperian
5 We shall not neglect the definite mention of some of our members who have attained to recognizable pro-
iciency. Our senior members, Yoder, Ebersole and Stutsman have enhanced the general activity of our Society,
and no less so, the seniors of the academic department, Blosser, Smucker, Reed and Easch. Others from the
ranks of under-classmen, Lehman, Reed, Oesch, Sherk and Hauderg all have given strength and stimulus by
their enthusiastic efforts and unceasing loyalty. Others who merit mention are Senger, our advisor, the
supporter of high literary standards, Ebersole, the never-weary hustler, Ramer, whose recent production of
poetry will startle the literary world, and not least is our jovial westerner, Burkhard, who has proved himself
not only a staunch member, but a capable man.
The following members served as president during the year: C. B. Blosser, W. C. Ebersole, C. D. Easch,
I. J. Lehman, W. W. Oesch, and P. D. Sommer. 4
Thus we've given a brief review of the past years' occurences. May our attainments prove no less in
future years, but be symbolic of the incessantly gushing waters of the C. M. A. FOUNTAIN, which so beauti-
fully decorates our college campus.

HE Handel Oratorio SOC16ty is a musical organization of the C1ty of Goshen NVi'11Ci'1 has held its rehearsals in
the Assembly Room of Goshen College during the greater part of the present season Its purpose 1S to
foster and promote 1nterest in the study and rendition of the great Works of sacred music It IS not a
Colleffe organization haxing been organized by and being under the control of citmens of Goshen, but its
advantages are open to faculty and students of Goshen College The fact that the membership reached the
number of one hundred and twenty it e, among which was some of the best mus1cal talent of the c1ty gives
evidence that the SOC16ty IS strong and well supported, and supplies a real need in the city The Work has been
a valuable aid to students of the College who wish to devote some time to sacred chorus mus1c, and the interest
they have manifested shows that they appreciate lt Much of what success the Society has achieved 1S due to
Worker and has served the Soclety without remuneration
The SOC16ty meet for rehearsal every week and the most ser1ous effort has been devoted to the mastery of
the choruses in Handel s famous orator1o The Messiah The first public rendition was given at the First M
E Church in th1s city on Friday March 3 The half tone 011 the opposite page represents the Society as
it appeared at that time 'Ihe second rend1t1on was g1ven May 12 1n the First M E Church The complete
orator1o 'Messiah was produced at that t1me in a cred1table manner The following soloists were engaged to
to assist in the rend1t1on Mrs Anna Wanamaker of Cleveland Soprano, Mrs Ethel Carpenter Fenton of
Chicago, Coutralto, and Messrs Albert Borroff and Holmes Cowper, Chicago Bass and Tenor respectively It
is to be hoped that the work will be cont1nued during the coming years in the same Splflt and with the same
energy that has characterized its beginning
