There is shown a sanity, a poise, that is rare in a community composed, as a college community necessarily must be, of young persons freed from home restraints. There is a seriousness inherited from many generations of parents who above all things else were religious, perhaps at times ascetic. There is a breezy American optimism caught on the sunny plains of Kansas, among the piney foothills of the Alleghanies, or mid the lakes of Minnesota. ln stamina and ability the Goshen stu- dent-body compares very favorably with that of any institution giving a similar amount of training, anywhere. Not only the present writer but all other Goshenites will tell the inquirer that we have a well-founded faith in our institution and ourselves. During the year that is past we have all labored faithfully and harmoniously to coin our aspirations into realities. Most of us are glad for and deserving of the vacation that is at hand. But whether we go out to return no more as students, or only for the summerg whether we have been here one year or sixg we will leave the institution without losing our interest in her destiny. The cordial relations between faculty and students, the feeling that both are engaged in the same cause with many common aims, and a sympathetic regard for each other thoroughly permeate the institution. Nor are we as sober as this would make us appear and we wish to caution the gentle reader-and all readers from time immemorial have been gentle-against taking us too seriously in the present volume. Our aim has been to seize and embody in permanent form some of the spirit and aroma of college life at Goshenp to reflect its lights and shadows for the instruction and amusement of all young people between the ages of "sweet sixteen" and sober ninety who anticipate or recall the joys and sorrows of college life. Our labor has been lightened by our love for our Alma Mater, by the budding innocence and climactic "breaks" of the Academy students, by the "f'reshiness" and frivolity of the College Juniors and by the enthusiastic co-operation of the entire College Senior Class. We thank Messrs. Starr of the Cooking Club Pub'g Co., of this city and Mr. Allen of the Indianapolis Engraving and Electrotyping Co., for efficient work and courteous treatment throughout. H. G.

Der Herr Professor Cerig holds an important po- sition. He is the first professor to look into the eyes of the timid "freshie" on registration day and he ever after commands the high respect of every student. His knowledge of grammatical constructions has al- ways been considered boundless and his most intel- ligent students always get beat when they attempt to argue the point. l .J sfw Zfsa.

Jonas, the son of Samuel, one of the married members of the faculty, is distinguished from the others by his clerical coat. He has a broad under- standing, both physically and mentally, and has never been excited even in the most trying circumstances. ln class he is lrnowni for his ready wit and cogent illustrations. 9 EPHRAIM J. ZOOK, A. M., Professor of Greek and Latin, and College Librarian. E. is one of the bachelor Profs., the same yes- terday, today and forever. He rs a lover of dead things, such as Latin and Greek: but we know he also talces an interest in live things, for often in the early spring he, with some city urchin, is seen in the forests to welcome the return of the birds. His one ideal rn lite seems to be to promote thei College Library. fjfbi ask ii Oo 99, N. Nils W Sa wifi sro cf i Qi y M a s Xa A .+ Q.

Though for the past two years absent in body, she has been continually present in spirit. She is thor- oughly efhcient in the alleviation of heart troubles. Students taking work in her department Uinglishl rec- o'nmend her instruction as clear, concise and pointed. DANIEL A. LEHMAN, A. M. Prof. of Mathematics and Astronomy and Principal of the Academy. Tall and dignilied with a stately step of generous dimensions, a kindly smile whose meaning even Sophomores are unable to divine, iron-gray hair grad- ually approaching zero-and the picture is complete. When it comes to instilling pure mathematics into acldled heads of young hopefuls he is "all there" and no one has been able to "floor" him or to solve his last examination problem. 10 FRANK S. EBERSOLE, Principal of the School of Business. Physically his most noticeable characteristics are his curly hair, blue eyes and pleasant smile. His cheerful disposition wins him many friends. His aptness in making quick and just clicisions have made him popular with the denizens of Kulp Hall who oft call on him to referee their basket ball games. ...f Skt Nm . X i ' t s !

Miss Kulp is acting Preceptress in the absence of Miss Kauffman and distributes her smiles impartially between the Commercial tribe and the guileless in- habitants of Kulp Hall. ' JONATHAN M. KURTZ, A. M., Professor of Physics and Chemistry. Our genial science professor began his faculty ca- reer at the Elkhart Institute. ln his Oberlin college days he sang in the College Glee Club and now sings tenor in the G. C. Quartette. Either his "larg- er interestsn or a tinge of asceticism have led him to miss some of his opportunities heretofore. His con- duct, to say the least, is enigmatic. Wrthal he is jovial and about the best "mixer" on the Faculty "bench." He was the "main spoke" in the l907 Reflector Staff. 11 SOLOMON F. GINGERICH, A. M., Professor of English. Professor Gingerich is not only a master interpreter of literature, but he himself is a "budding" author. The hand that wields his pen-and its his left hand too-has already done creditable service and promises to do more. His long, rapid strides forward, literally and uliterarilyu make it impossible for ordinary mor- tals to keep pace with him. With keen blue eyes, deeply embrowed, he penetrates the thickest cranium and sees: all :that lies within if there is anything. The:way:of the "blulfer" in his classes is hard. f , Qtr . ,475 . i t Q gt? i if 1 lm A s t Q s 5: 0 ' A OWN Q Q -,lV , bg Q o git! X ' 'jfvxl .sffkl c A QKQ J. FRANK EBERSOLE, A. B., Instructor 'in History and Economics The youngest member of the faculty made his mitral bow last fall. He is a fluent speaker and not afraid to use his voice. The students in his depart- ment claim that it is a pleasure to he rn his classes and to take part in the discussions. lr is not long since he secured his bachelor's degree, but it is re- ported that he is already dissatisfied with it. JOHN D. BRUNK, Musical Director. He comes from the sunny south to instil a sense for sweet sounds into the minds of his students. All students have learned that they cannot run away with him in chapel singing. He is always busy, yet never excited, very exact, sharp as a tack and it is rumored that he knows more than he tells, tho' his modesty prevents us from verifying the report. Those who know him best speak most highly of him and his work. 12 BOYD D. SMUCKER, Director of the School of Oratory. Graduate of Goshen School of Oratory, King's School of Oratory and graduate student in oratory at Ohio Wesleyan University. Prof. Smucker, better known as Boydie, rs unmar- ried as yet, but glories in the future. He is tall in stature, genial in disposition and wears an air of au- thority that means "victory." Although with the institution only a year he rs a general favorite both as a teacher and as an expressive reader. THE BUSINESS MANAGEMENT. C. K. Hostetler has been the efficient Business Manager of the Elkhart Institute and Goshen College since 1899. The institution has prospered under his management. In the spring of I908 he resigned his position to go into business at Anniston, Ala. The vacancy has been filled by the appointment of S. Hartzler. ASSISTANT INSTRUCTORS. I. W, ROYER, Bible.

T was an eventful incident for a student to walk down South Prairie Street for the first time, to see before them that large, two-story, state- ly-looking, brick building known as the Elkhart Institute. Upon enter- ing, there was on the left a small oiiice where C. K. Hostetler was Wont to be found engaged in much the same activities in which a student of Goshen College would have found him a few years later. The oflice opposite was where the worthy principal, now our President, among his other duties, held private interviews with those who transgressed any of the six command- ments lsee catalogl and also where the much beloved preceptress, Miss Lina Zook, would draw downcast maidens to herself to impart her sympathy and encouragement. The library or reading room was a place of great interest. Occasion- ally an unusual amount of merriment existed within its four walls and a rap on the principal's office door was heard which we rightly interpreted as meaning silence. Perhaps the part of the building where the social life of the student was best portrayed was the large din- ing hall in the basement which had a capacity of fifty-five or sixty. Three times each day we would promptly gather around the five long tables. After hearing one of Prof. J. W. Yoder's before-dinner speeches no one ever felt like coming in late. Many and varied were the discussions around those tables. S. F. Gingerich a quiet sort of a fellow from the west and J. M. Kurtz a lively young man from Ohio, both destined to become Well known professors of Goshen College, had many talks on Emerson and Carlyle. Many of their company were then unable to grasp the meaning of their discussions but found pleasure in watching their enthusiasm. Among others who were popular in the din- ing hall were the Misses Lina Zook, Leila Munsell, Alta Kurtz, Lydia B. Stutzman, Amelia Bergey and Messrs. 15 O. C. Yoder, J. S. Umbel, J. S. Yoder, C. R. Blosser, P. D. Summer and P. E. Whitmer. Later G. J. Lapp, who came from the air tAyrJ was highly instrumental in making things lively. Adjoining the dining hall on the one side was a cellar and on the other a kitchen whose walls, if they could speak, would undoubtedly give us a surprising history concerning the whereabouts of some eggs, pies, ginger- snaps, etc. However, not all the pleasant memories linger around the Institute building. Many were the happy hours spent in the homes which gave us shelter. To us dormitory life was an unknown experience. At that time the students had the privilege of using a large level field for athletic purposes. Upon this the young men had a base ball diamond and track while two or three tennis courts served as a delightful place of recreation to both young men and young women. During the early autumn and warm spring days, students greatly enjoyed strolling out to study in Stude- baker Park, a quiet woodland along the left bank of the Elkhart River. A spot more attractive and as a result not nearly so quiet, located at the junction of the Elkhart with the St. Joe River is known as Island Park. Here, each spring the student body together with professors and friends would spend a day or half day in a social way. At the close of these outing days, ere the sun sank in the west, many of the students might have been seen pad- dling their canoes up the romantic "Old St. Joe." Frequently after rowing up the river three or four miles the boats would join and float down to the boat house together. We remember seeing one boat race in which six young women were the participants and Miss Lucinda Yoder won the honors. Miss Emma LeFevre who now graces the home of Pres. Byers was the first graduate from an academic course. Six members of the class of '01 were the first to complete the outlined four year Latin-Scientific course. These members were Olivia Good, I. R. Detweiler, J. L. Steiner, F. S. Ebersole, J. M. Kurtz, and J. S. Umble. Of this number two are now professors in Goshen College, two in high schools, one is a returned missionary from India and at present holds a prominent position on the missionary board of the church while another is engagednin city mission work. It was during the early part of '02 that the coveted enrollment of one hundred was reached. I The students of Elkhart Institute we must say were reserved and usually dignified. This was due in a great measure to the fact that most of them were no longer in their "teens" and also that they looked on the more serious side of life. One evening we remember seeing a well built man dressed in a blue uniform with a nickel 16 Q, -er - . ,.' , -'Q'-1,.., A X 'Ryze BREAKING THE GROUND FOR GOSHEN COLLEGE 17 1 star upon his coat and a "billy" in his hand standing near the entrance of the Institute building. He allowed no one to leave the campus until he bore upon his left arm the mark of the physician's scalpel. Any student attend- ing Elkhart Institute during the early spring of '02 will well remember that "smallpox," "vaccination" and "pest houses" were the topics of the day. Entering again in the autumn of 1902 the lawn was more beautiful than ever, the building was the same, with the exception that class rooms had been enlarged where it was possible and the dining hall had previous to this time also been enlarged, yet everything seemed so small and crowded. We became cognizant of the fact that we were many more in number than we had been in 1900 and that the management was looking for a larger home for us. We received but little practical assistance from the citizens of Elkhart but the neighboring city of Goshen welcomed us to a beautiful location on her southern border. Sometime during May '03 this offer was ac- cepted and on June 12 of the same year the dedicatory exercises of the site of the new Goshen College building, were witnessed by over two hundred and 'fifty people. After a dedicatory prayer, Attorney Deahl of Goshen gave a very Htting address of welcome to which Prof. C. H. Smith gave a response. After several other short ad- dresses, the ground outlining the new building was broken, J. S. Hartzler holding the plow drawn by a team belong- ing to C. P. Yoder. In looking forward it seemed almost impossible to think that on Sept. 29, '03 school would open in this new location but by energetic labor the new dormitory planned for, was sufficiently completed to shelter the ingather- ing maidens on the second floor, the first being used for recitation rooms and chapel exercises. The southern section of the basement was a carpenter shop, reading room and dining room combined. There amid the sound of the hammer and saw of the carpenter, professors and students did their work. Swiftly as possible the main build- ing was raised and a few weeks before Christmas the chapel exercises were held in the reading room. By Jan. 6. '04 a sufiicient number of rooms were completed so that the schoolwork could be transferred from the dormitory to the college building and on the evening of Jan. 8, '04, the new building was dedicated. To the student of Elkhart Institute this seems a large building and the dining hall in the dormitory with a capacity of a few more than one hundred seems large enough to suliice for many years. I As 1898 saw one young woman graduating from a two year academy course, 1901 the first class of students completing a four year course, so 1904 saw a class of twelve young men and women complete the newly outlined six year course. 18 In September '03 the campus presented no such appearance as it does in the spring of '08, The entire cam- pus was a stubble field. Instead of the long, pretty walk a deep ditch extended from College Avenue to the foundation of the college building. In a few weeks however, the walk was laid. During the spring of '04 some grading was done on the east side of the walk. Through the enthusiasm and Hnancial aid of the C. M. A. Society a fountain was erected in front of the College. Especially delightful is it to listen to the soft, tinkling music of the water as it rises high above the fountain and then breaks into a silver spray, rippling playfully from basin to basin in a sweet, sinking cadence. Gradually the campus acquired a more dignified appearance. At the north end there arose a stately struct- ure of iron and granite overarching the driveway and walks which has become known as the Aurora arch. True to the spirit of the society which supervised its erection it became a gateway to the source of knowledge and in- spiration. Each night its lights send forth their rays to pierce the darkness and to guide the homeward-bound. The dormitory became too small and as a result the commodious Kulp Hall stands opposite facing the morn- ing sun. These dormitories, if they could speak might tell us of many girlish pranks, of birthday surprises, 10 to 10:15 P. M. spreads, of robbersl?l who at least succeeded in frightening the fair maidensg and they might give a thrilling account of a disastrous C?J fire which was extinguished by the valiant lads of the fire department. After the erection of Kulp Hall grading was done on the West side of the walk and today a pretty green carpet extends from the college building to the arch. Trees have been planted which in the future will shelter the studious young men and young women from the bright rays of the sun, as well as add an air of aesthetic com- pleteness to the campus. As early as 1904 a tennis court was constructed. At present we have three, the last having been dedicated and presented to the young women by the young men of the athletic association, April 29, '08. The athletic field used by the young men is located on the college grounds north of the campus. Students of Goshen College have their outings as well as did their predecessors at Elkhart. Were the trees which grace the banks of the Elkhart river suddenly in possession of voices, what secrets could they not reveal, - what history disclose! Doubtless they would tell of frequent excursions of students in search of wild flowers for botanical study or for pastimeg they could tell of those who sought for rocks in their geological trips 3 of those who went out "by twos" to hear the lays of the feathered choirg they would tell of those entranced by the beauty of the river itself and who listened with delight to the soft murmur of the waves as they lapped aimlessly against 19 the sandy shores, or of those who stood enraptured at the sound of the water as it came dashing down over thi rocks with a rush and a roar, flinging the white spray in all directions. One organization which has done much in unifying the student body in the development of both the socia and spiritual life of the individual is the Young Peoples' Christian Association. It is the organization which affect: the life of every student and much of the harmonious work of the student body must directly or indirectly be at tributed to this strongly organized body of young men and women. Thus, in so far as our memory has served us faithful- ly, we have tried to record some of the important and most interesting facts in the early history of our Alma Ma- ter. Historians tell us that the present is but a reverber- ation of the pastg that events in human history transpire in a never ending cycle 3 whatsoever may be gleaned from the first few years of the individual's life shall fortell its future. Let the world then listen as the Seers of the class of 1908 left the veil which curtains the future from the pres- ent and in prophecy reveal its mystery. Coming years shall witness the same growth in numbers of students, efii- ciency of management and ideals of faculty and student body. As in the past great men have been tutored within these walls and have gone forth to bless the world, so again will there be in this train, philanthropists, scholars, orators, statesmen, divines, yea even rulers shall go forth to sway a household if not an empire. The influence of our institution shall no longer be limited to touch and mould the lives of a few, but its influence shall go onward and outward, from generation to generation, We trust to the end of time. 20 r 4 1 W 1 n I 1 I l L lVlotto: Our on y grea SENICRS.

An energetic Hoosier. The hrst twenty-one years of his life were spent on the farm. Since then he has been a student at Goshen College. Besides the college course he completes the two years' course in Oratory in which department he has gained considerable distinction. He is slow, deliberate and witty, and has as his highest amhition, according to his own statement, "To get something good to eat." As far as we can learn he is still waiting for some one to superintend the setting of the table. MABELLE N. YODER, Topeka, Indiana. "Fair in sooth is the maiden," and lofty not only in thought but also in figure. During her school career she has engaged in various student activities, on the Lecture Course Board, in the Young Women's Christian Association and in the Avon Society. She would be more easily characterized if her virtues and accomplishments were less. DELTA MAY KAUF F MAN, Goshen, Indiana. The local representative of the class. She comes to us after a year's vacation having graduated from the Goshen High School with honors. The maturer sorrows of her life began last year when her class-mates chose her to the Junior presi- dency. Suffice it to say that she served her time with patient fortitude! Fortune chose her for a generous bestowal of gifts -a winsome manner, a face of rare beauty, enlivened by soul- ful eyes, the power of artistic expression and a heritage of:noble aspirations. She merits the worthiest in life. WILLIAM C. EBERSOLE, Elkhart, Indiana. W. C. has an eagle glance and a firm mouth which even in repose seems to say "I won't," tho' his name says "will" not .specifying whether it means "good will" or "bailey will." Ap- parently passive, he has, however, enthusiasm sufhcient to excite afmob. During his senior year he has served creditably as Y. P. C. A. President. Since assuming the financial manage- ment of this volume he's "getting wise" in the world of business. ELSIE BYLER, Newton, Kansas. Miss Byler is a quiet, modest Westerner. She was born in Ohio, grew up in Kansas and spent her student life in Hoosierdom. As a model of dignity and propriety, she is a success and her keen intellect and poetic temperament have made her prominent in college life. She cares not for the society of man GJ but loves tranquil solitude. ELVA WINIFRED GREENWALT, Goshen, Indiana, Although Elva carries a woman's name, he is a man and a bona-fide student of Goshen college. Like Messrs. Ebersole, Rupp and others, he was left over hom the Academy Class of l906. He is known by all as a jovial young man, fond of society and an excellent calendar-and-joke man. May his future he bright in his chosen field, electrical engineering. HARRY GEHMAN GOOD, Terre Hill, Pa. The patriarch of the class! He comes from the renown- ed hills of Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, is a well-refald man and mathematician. Since his initiation into the mysteries of an editor's position fbeing Editor-in-Chief of the Reflector, he has concluded that this is a desirable and profitable occupation. Any publishmg house desiring his services is advised to apply early. The above "puff" is given free of charge for attempted services on the present book. MAMIE M. YODER, Bellefontaine, Ohio. Retiring president of the Young Women's Christian As- sociation. She one of the very few among us who remembers from experience the life of the Elkhart institute. Since then she has for several years constituted the entire "faculty" in a country school Last fall she came back for her senior year, thus taking her college course in instalments. Refined, quiet, meek, she has been a worthy example to the faculty. Even theological students commend her. SENIOR CLASS PROGRAM. BIUSIC - - SALL"FATORX' - C'L.-XSS IIISTORY SX'B1l-'OSIUBI - I.

Before us moves the cloud-the fire: Thus mount we up and thus aspire. As day by day the path is made The goal recedesg the glories fade. The vision that did real seem ls but a strange dissolving dream. That which we would doth draw no nigher E'en tho' we toil, e'en tho' aspire. Doth Hope, for naught, with beckoning smile And fond illusions thus beguile The unpactised soul? Or is the shade, Which doth the groping hand evade, In harmony with what we feel? ls it the shadow of the real? Within the shrine of thy desire Engraven deep in words of fire, Thy soul's unerring law behold, Which doth all mysteries unfold. "Dost thou aspire P Then there must be Somewhere - thy own affinity." Advance-tho' dangers vast impend. Toil on-thy energies unbend. What tho' the iitful, quivering flame Doth nearer draw then flee again. Fear not-believe. Yon peaks of fire Shall still be thine. If thou'lt aspire Undaunted then, arise ! -away Ye vain delusions that dismay ! We scorn that strong defying power And would possess in one brief hour The wealth that Ages have acquired Through hearts aflame and souls inspir'd. 29 But Truth, defiant as of old Reluctant would herself withold. She scorned our proud and foolish art. She portioned out a meagre part- Yet thrilled us with an energy To follow her untiringly. Not ours the day of splendor brightg Not ours to basic in truth's fair light g Not ours the top-most height sublimeg But ours is still a mid-world clime. Still far removed, our deep desire, Yet still we hope and still aspire. Thus may it be at eventide, When each hath laid his toil aside. imperfect visions of life's end- lmperfect still and unattained. lVlay'st hear a voice bid thee, "Come higher Thou hast attained. Thou didst aspire." -ELSIE BYLER 4 CLASS MEDLEY. To live nobly, grandly, truly, In the hearts of our fellow men, Is, each day, to live our highest self And never to return again To the baser things within our livesg But climbing higher and higher To remember that, "Our only greatness Is that we aspire." -Evangeline What's the use of your complaining If some little thing goes wrong? Cheer up! Laugh a little- Help this sad old world along.

Motto: Caribe diem. Seize the opportunity. Colors! Black and Old Gold. CLASS OFFICERS. President, EMMA E. HERSHEY. Vice President, j. A. BRETZ. Secretary, EVA HARDER. Treasurer, S. A. ZOOK. THIS is the "banner" class of the year. No one will even attempt to deny this statement. Has not their ban- ner floated higher than that of any other organization in the history of Goshen College? Have not "preps" and seniors alike sat beneath its austere black and luminous gold? Yea, did not even the faculty look up to it with surprise and admiration as it waved on high in triumph? However, it must not be thought that the "banner" of this class was raised to pre-eminence without diffr- culty. Many were the vicissitudes and adversities of the year: members came and went, the ranks were thinnedg president and secretary were called home, others were chosen: the conflict with other organizations was strenuous. But as fire proves gold, so adversity and conflict proved the true metal of the Juniors. They indeed "seized the opportunity." They were found equal to any occasion. In every emergency they manifested a true "banner" spirit. And yet, with all their achievements and triumphs, they have remained an unassuming and unpretentious body, preferring to let deeds rather than words proclaim their virtues. For them the past, at least, is secure. The future, too, is bright 3-what they have accomplished amid the limitations and restrictions of junior-hood seems to indicate that their "banner" is destined to rise higher and higher until it shall fioat in the empyrean of success. fThis is what the Juniors think of themselves. The reader will not fail to recognize the extremely "unas- suming and unpretentious" character of their own write-up. Elsewhere in this volume may be seen what others think of them.-ED.

WEILER. Class Professor, B. D. SMUCKER. THE Academy Class of 1908 can claim representatives from the Rockies to the Atlantic. Coming from many states these persons show very different characteristics. Among the number are one prospective physician, one musician, several teachers and business men. P. A. HAUDER. The physician is a western young man who spent the greater part of life on the prairies of Missouri. From his early youth he had a desire to fit himself for some profession. Being led by his ambition he came to Goshen. Because of his marked enthusiasm and ability, the class very aptly chose him as their president. In this position he has shown remarkable executive ability and power of persuasion. Judging from these characteristics a bright future lies before him. ESTHER LEHMAN. Among the hills of eastern Ohio, near a stream winding through an old stone quarry, lives our secretary. She has during her school years shown herself intellectual and studious. Altho' she is small in stature, yet every one with whom she comes in contact, feels that her strength of character atones for the deficiency in size. Her favorite pursuit is the study of Latin. A. C. BRUNK. The boyhood days of another of our number were spent in the Shenandoah valley of Virginia, and altho' he has been for some time an adopted son of Ohio, yet pleasant dreams of the old Vir- ginia hills still cling to his memory. Evidently these surroundings have created in a love for poetry. In his work he has striven diligently to perform well each task set before him. The future will find him delving still farther into the-hidden mysteries of the English Muse. 35 Q. MAUDE A. WARYE. The state of Ohio has been quite liberal in contributing valuable material to this class, for there are yet two others who claim it as their home. The one passed her childhood in a fertile valley in the south western part of the state. There she attended the district school, later continued her studies in the high school, and after a few years spent in teaching entered Goshen College. During her time spent here she has shown a keen intellect. She also has remarkable executive ability, which was made manifest in her society and Y. P. C. A. Work. FANNIE B. RUPP. The home of the other is in the northern part of the state on a level stretch of land sur- rounded by forests. Here she spent her childhood days, after which her smiling face was seen among the students of this institution. She has shown herself well adapted to the various phases of school life, especially along social lines. Because of a kind and agreeable disposition she has Won many friends. A. J. REGIER. This class is proud to have among their number one who, altho' he has always lived in this country, speaks the German as his native tongue. He spent the greater part of his life on the plains of Minnesota, in summer enjoying the fresh country breezes, and in winter attending a private German school. After following the teaching profession for one year he came to join our number. We know him as a good-natured, honest student with just enough humor to make him a very agreeable associate. SUSIE, GOOD. The sunny clime and balmy air of Tennessee has left a lasting effect on the disposition of one of our classmates, who has spent the greater part of her life in that region. Her hearty laugh and incessant conversation have Won the hearts of many of her associates. Most of her time at this place has been devoted to Bible work. W. T. NUNEMAKER. One of our athletes is a Westerner, having spent his youth in a primitive prairie town of Nebraskag but not finding the surroundings desirable he took up his residence amidst the beautiful mountain scenery of Colorado. Shortly after this he made his appearance among the students of Goshen College. During his school years he has devoted considerable time to the gymnasium and ball ground, but in the pursuit of athletics he did not neglect his more scholarly duties. HARRY B. WEILER. To another of our number the Alleghanies of Pennsylvania recall pleasant memories of . i mountains and sparkling streamlets. But from this attractive scenery he could not satisfy his mind, so, after spending some time in high school, he came to Goshen with an inquisitive mind and an insati- 37 able appetite for pie, both of which heihas been trying to satisfy ever since. He is also quite a financier, for the class has prospered under his supervision of the treasury. I ELSIE DRANGE. The great city of Chicago has been the childhood home of one, who has for several years been among our number. Having been deprived of her mother while yet a child, she early tasted the hardships of life 3 and this experience has given her a kindness and sympathy for all about her. In deciding the question of a life work she has chosen to devote her time to the noble cause of enlightening mankind in a land where Christianity is unknown. WM. H. MILLER. A great many of our classmates have had the pleasure of traveling through various states of our country, but there are two who may well be called Wanderers. One of these lived the great- er part of his youth in the state of Iowa. Not being satisfied there he spent several years in traveling through various western states, after which he entered the Bible Department of Goshen College. Among the students he is known by his hearty laugh. ADAM E. SHELLENBERGER. The other spent his first few years among the hills of Pennsylvania after which he lived for a time in the state of Nebraska, and the rest of his time, outside of several eastward trips, was passed on the plains of Kansas. Among the students he is thought to be rather quiet, some- what timid, and not given to much undue haste. He has devoted a great deal of his time to business. ANNA CHRISTOPHEL. The state of Indiana has done its duty in contributing representatives to this class. Sev- en of our number claim the honer of being Hoosiers. One of these is the musician of our class. She loves the brooks of her father's farm and it is here she first saw the music she so much apprciates. Her time at Goshen has been devoted to music, and the effect is seen in her bright countenance and musical laugh. ELWOOD E. LANDIS. Another is only an adopted son of Indiana having lived the greater part of his life in the t state of Illinois. He has a business turn of mind, and has been fitting himself for work along that line. Altho' he is very reserved and somewhat timid he has always done his duty well. MARGARET J ENKINSON. The third has always spent her time in the city, first in South Bend and later in Goshen. ' ' She IS a business Woman of ability, and in the future she will exercise the training she has recelved at this institution. 38 GEORGE G. WITTWER. The small city of Berne is the home of another Hoosier, who has cast his lot with us. He is a very interesting character, full of jokes and mischief. And altho' his mischief- loving nature sometimes led him to break the Dormitory rules, yet his kindness has Won him many friends. In our class socials especially did we enjoy his good natured humor. ADAH KAUFFMAN. Another representative from this state spent her early childhood in the east. The last few G years she has lived in this city. As we know her she is a quiet, studious girl. Altho' she IS not a great conversationalist, we respect her for her modesty and reserve. S. H. BEMENDERFER. The sixth Indiana representative is a business student and an athlete. He has done excellent work both in the business department and in the gymnasium. He manifest- Ed his class loyalty by the active part he took in class contest basket ball games. His future will be devoted to usmess. ' ELNORA KAUFFMAN. And last, there is yet one more who claims Indiana as her home. She has lived all her life on a farm near Goshen. While in school she has not distinguished herself especially in any line of Work, but it has always been her aim to have well prepared lessons and to make her friends happy. The most that can be said of her is, that the class has placed enough confidence in her to choose her as historian. The history of these indviduals does not end here. As we separate each will follow his own chosen path- way. And as time rolls on we believe the Class '08 will characterize themselves by uplifting mankind about them, and appear for a time above the common current of humanity. We shall not, however, strive for fame. Our aim is much higherg and if we battle through life, as we have battled during our school years, we will realize our aim in the fulfillment of our motto, "success crowns perseverance." 39 J 40 1 ACADEMY J UNIORS.

FAR. back in the hazy past, long before the Nebular Hypothesis was exploded by our Geological Department, youthful, bubbbling enthusiasm was gathering itself together for one mighty eruption which, in the latter part of the fall term 1907 suddenly burst forth in an awe-inspiring upheaval of inextinguishable class spirit and an unconquerable indefatigability of bull-dog tenacity sweeping not only every visible barrier from our front and de- molishing every seemingly impregnable stronghold of our pragmatical rivals, but also at the same time demon- strating the truth of our class motto-"In ourselves our future lies." During the first month of our school year we suffered considerable assault and battery from our more ego- tistical aud priggish rivals. But when the forces which had been silently gathering from the four corners of the earth. met one day late in autumn and organized the most illustrious and enterprising class recorded in the an- nals of the Academy, not only did the Seniors shudder at the fallacy of their apocryphal hopes, but even the Sophs were seen standing with eyes aghast gazing into the great immensity of the problem before them. From this supererogatory outburst of spontaneous activity OUR CLASS made one united and stupendous ef- fort, not only to maintain its legal rights to the culminating position among the various organizations of the school, but also to eclipse all the sanguine expectations of its anxious rivals. All know the axiomatic outcome. Our progress since has been one long continued triumph of mind over matter. Having subjugated every encroachment upon our outstanding bulwarks and battlements, our triumph over cosmopolitan corporealities was only an indication of the greater achievements going on within the inexpug- nable citadels of our own minds. And having surpassed even our own expectations in this arena of activity, we now find ourselves standing on the verge of a new epoch in our history. We stop to take a retrospective look over our past career. The View is seraphic and inspiring. But we must not linger here. Stimulated by the glowing reminiscences of our past achievements, with still higher motives and aspirations we turn to the future before us. -11 x , S ACADEMY SOPHCMURES.

ALL great organizations of men in the world's history have had insignificant beginnings. They have existed only after having overcome almost irresistible obstacles. In fact the very forces opposing them have caused the necessity of the organization. The organization of the Freshmen has verified this truth. We exist as a unified body, twenty-one strong, only after having passed victoriously thru seasons of depression and tribulation. After several unsuccessful but carefully concealed attempts we finally effected the organization of the "Freshman Class." October 24th. Our boat was launched upon the world's tempestuous Waters, but had it not been for the dauntless spirit of several in- dividuals, our bark would have been wrecked by the winds of doubt and discouragement. But these persons, whom we will not embarrass by mentioning their names, guided our boat thru the threatening mists and the broad ex- panse of life's widening possibilities illumined by the sunshine of our increased knowledge, gave us renewed energy and zea . We come from east and west and represent that type of manhood and womanhood which is typical of the best rural population of' our great country. We come directly from the farm inspired by the truths as taught by one of man's best teachers, nature, God's own perfect creation. We do not claim the serene wisdom and com- mon sense of the Seniors, nor the athletic ability and numbers of the Juniors, norueve-n the social spirit and sophis- try of the Sophomores, but we do claim unlimited aspirations. We aspire to maintain the standards and ideals of past students of Goshen Col-lege and even to excel them, resolving to profit by their mistakes. However we are already looking past SiChOOl.lI1lZ0 life's practical world striving to make school a means of increasing our usefulness in it. It is with this ideal in mind that we are aspiring to become Seniors. We are confident in saying that if -the future biographers may write as history what We now feel as aspiration they will indeed havenno lack of subject matter. We aspire to knowledge and wisdom and to all virtues which are embodied in true christian character. 45 z 46 ff: ,fx 47 4 sig in " ex XX MQ. VESPERIAN SOCIETY. Motto : Excelsior. ROSTER.

The year 1907-08 again marked a gradual enlargement in power and breadth of influence. This success is attributed to the spirit carried forward from past years and also the earnest endeavors of responsible individuals in definite lines of work. The membership, including associate members, numbered 90. The larger majority of the men gave hearty support to the usual features of the work as-Bible Study, Mission Study and Devotional Meet- ings. The S115 fund for missions and other minor pledges were paid. Six men, four of Whom were delegates at- tended the Geneva Conference and shared with us their increased zeal and knowledge. Throughout the year, free and sincere association among the men has been encouraged. The unity of eHort, the prayerful interest of Faculty and friends, the helpful visits of Sec. E. J. Jaqua, the induence of noble ideals have been of inestimable value in the acquisition of the priceless product-Christian man- hood. 56 N A S YOUNG WOMEN,S CABINET. MAMIE M. YODER, President.

The Young Women's Cabinet has proven a most potent factor in the solution of these problems. It is the medium through which have been forestalled threatening hindrances to the religious life of our young wom- eng and in their stead it has sought to lift up high standards of Christian excellence. The young women having the various phases of activity in hand, have through earnest individual effort and prayerful shouldering of responsibility succeeded in enlisting the support of a large percentage of our young wom- en, and in arousing and maintaining a most praiseworthy interest in Mission Study, Bible Study and Devotional Meetings. Our membership for the year numbered 67. Our S60 pledge for missions and other minor pledges have been paid. Three of our members attended the Geneva Conference and twelve the State Convention. All in all the work of 1907-08, We feel, has been characterized by a unity of purpose-"To know Christ and make Him known." The sympathetic support of Faculty and friends, the inspiring visit of Sec'y Margery Melcher and an abid- ing consciousness of the confidence placed in us, all spur us on toward the realization of our visions of Ideal Womanhood. 58 1 iw 1. l X 1 W1 2 D 59 U The Apollo Circle.

ASSISTANTS. JUDSON MICKS. ELLA DECAMP. CLAUDE BRUNK. DELIA ALBRECHT. IN the past two years the School of Music in Goshen College has been forming policies and precedents which seem to be safe enough to make it permanent and at the same time progressive enough to promote continued growth. It is the aim of the Director to develop in the student, individuality, cultivate imagination and train him in the expression of his emotions and thoughts. Music lends itself admirably to the expression of the sublime and poetic feelings of the soul. It is a soul- languageg a means of interpretation to man, of the Divine. These ideals cannot, of course, be attained at a bound, but must be followed diligently and eagerly for months and years. There are some technical difiiculties to be masteredg but the student who considers technique the end should learn that it is only a means. When a student appreciates the breadth of the field he become satisfied with the quotation "Art is long and time is fleeting" and begins to toil manfully on the "Gradus ad Parussumf' In response to the demands of the above ideals the order of action has been lectures, recitals, concerts, teaching, recitations, examinations, A's and B's. There have been some regrets, but the successes have been satisfactory to the management and a prosperous future for the School of Music seems assured. 61 STUDENT S LIBRARY ASSOCIATION. President, H.

In his several lectures he discussed the Books of J ob, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah and Revelation. In each instance he attempted to find the fundamental principle underlying each work and the fundamental idea which gives it unityg then he recited from memory large parts of each book to show the main idea in the book itself. These lectures Were, extremely helpful to all as they gave a new and powerful explanation of some of the generally less known and poorly under- stood parts of the Scriptures. It is to be hoped that from henceforth each year a course of Extension Lectures may be given at Goshen College. 63 I xl IN NIENIORIANI. MISS KATHRYN YODER was born near West Liberty, Ohio, February 23, 1889. Died at Goshen College, February 12, 1908. Miss Kathryn's childhood was especially beautiful. As a child she was obedient and affectionate. She loved the association of flower-bird -stream-together with the solitude of the wood. Her fancy peopled the external world with kindred spirits with whom she loved to commune,-a culture which kindled the imaginationg imparted a keen appreciation of the good and beautifulg purified and intensified the emotional nature. Almost naturally, she chose music as the medium of expression for the emotions thus awakened within her soul. She entered the music de- partment of Goshen College, September 25, '07, to pursue her musical studies preparatory to teaching. In the year following she allied herself with the Academy Senior Class '08 in which capacity she served as secretary. As a student she was both conscientious and persevering. Her prog- ress was rapid and showed marked talent in many branches especially in musical composition. As a Christian she was devoted and sincere. Her beautiful, exemplary life was a source of inspiration to all with whom she came in contact. Child of the nether plains beautiful, tender, pure: Beammg with morning s radiant hope: Content simply to live love and ready to die, If thus the world might glow with sacred cheer and tranquil peace. She loved and the music of her soul swelled to' infinitude, Where with guests at heaven s shrine, she welcomes man to heights sublime. Even now the sacred melody of her heart and the tender strains of angel choirs reverberate in our souls. We bow our heads enjoy its sweet requiem, and resolve anew. H, L, R, 65 I' -MH I I 3 . A 'A AL ' V' THE DEPARTMENT OF ORATORY. WHAT higher or purer gratification can there be in the home or social circle than the artistic reading of some beautiful piece of literature? Human nature desires the truth to be presented in the most interesting and vivid manner. Although the newspapers have become the medium of conveying to the masses general information, it is still the province of the speaker "to convince men and move to action." The saying is as old as Quintilian that "a poor discourse Well delivered will have a better effect than a good discourse poorly delivered, and that one who has a good discourse and a good delivery has everything in his favor." This year marks a new era in the oratorical Work of Goshen College. The number of persons taking oratory has been treble that of any previ- ous year. The Head of the Department has been one of the busiest men about the college. The excellent recitals and oratorical programs render- ed during the year give proof of the work done. 66 INTER-COLLEGIATE PEACE ASSOCIATION. THE Intercollegiate Peace Association was organized at Goshen College in June 1904. Its purpose is to promote the cause of international arbitra- tion and peace in the higher educational institutions of the United States. Forty-five colleges of the north central states are now members of the associ- ation. The organization for next year provides for the extension of the move- ment so as to include all the colleges of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. The Association has been affiliated with the American Peace Society and is virtually the College department of this National organization. Peace So- cieties are being organized in the Colleges which are affiliated with the Corda Frates, a somewhat similar organization of the Universities of Europe. Pro- spects are promising now for an international move- ment among the college men for the peace of the World, and tangible results may be expected when these same men take charge of the affairs of the nations. A special feature of the society consists of a series of local college, state and interstate oratorical contests. Four orators participated in the local contest at Goshen and J. W. Shank and H. L. Stump were given first and J- W- SHANK- second places. J. W. Shank represented Goshen at the State contest held at Bloomington, Indiana, and although not given a place among the Win- ners yet he made a very creditable showing in comparison with the representatives from the four larger colleges of the state viz., Indiana, DePauw, Notre Dame and Earlham. With prospects for a full college course, stronger faculty and larger student body, We are confident that Goshen may soon be able to produce orators and place advocates to rank With the strongest men found in the best institutions of America. H. L. 67 THE LABORATGRY OF Physics and Astronomy AMONG the improvements of the school year 1907-8, the Vesperian Laboratory of Physics and Astronomy, is worthy of mention. It occupies the north-west corner of the basement floor in the College building, and is a bright, cheerful spot. A large cabinet and four substantial laboratory tables, all hand-made, help to constitute the equipment, and useful instruments of various kinds grace the cabinet. In addition, the Walls are tinted a beautiful shade of green, with stencil and moulding in gold. The Society has also purchased a three and one-half inch telescope for the astronomical department, and the Professors of Physics and Astronomy find these equip- ments valuable in their special line of work. Students, too, who pursue a course in either of these departments, will be greatly benefited by their use. 68 ASSEMBLY HALL. THE Avon Society in gratefulness to the institution to which it owes its existence has during the past year again manifested its good will in a practical way. As a result of its efforts the Assembly Hall presents a marked change. Instead of walls bare and white, they are beautifully tinted and ornamented- The gas lights are replaced by a large chandelier fitted for gas and electricity. Electric lights have also been placed below the balcony. The stage has been lowered, a railing placed around it and a Wilton rug has been provided. 69 ATHLETICS. A HISTORY of our student life would be incomplete if no mention were made of the in-door and out-door athletic activities of the year. Fortunately, these activities find their origin not in traditional necessity alone, but are also an out- growth of wholesome interest. BASKET The regular drill work in the gymnasium was BALL conducted as usual during the winter months with Prof. Smucker and Miss Yoder in charge of men's and women's classes, respectively. However, among the young men the interest was largely diverted toward basket ball. Three inter-society games were played between well- matched teams from the Aurora and C. M. A. Societies, the latter winning two games of the series. Under the supervi- sion of a Faculty Committee a larger series of games were played, in which teams organized from the College Juniors and the four Academy classes participated. Inter-class games were iirst organized this year but were nevertheless interesting and satisfactory. Fair tactics, class enthusiasm and honest, vigorous work were marked features of each game. The Sophomores were final victors with the winning score of 121 points, the other teams ranking with following scores: C. Junior, 663 Freshmen, 65 g Junior, 94 3 A. Senior, 74. The scores of the two latter teams would have rivaled the score of the winning team had it not been for the failure in playing their final game. TENNIS Considerable interest has also been manifested in tennis this year. A new Tennis Court was erected for the exclusive use of the young women. It is most conveniently situated at the rear of Kulp Hall, as shown in the accompanying view taken at the time of its formal dedication. The Association has arranged for single tournaments for both men and women, the finals to be played Commencement week. The victors will be awarded handsome presents. 70 BASE The Athletic Association was especially fortunate this year in securing funds necessary to carry on its BALL work. In October under its auspices, the Byron W. King recital was held, bringing a liberal increase to the funds of the Association. Early in the spring term base ball equipment was procured in preparation for the usual round of games. Two interesting games were played with the local high school team, the college team winning one with a favorable score. Altho' no games are definitely sched- 2 v W gang. uled, a number of games will yet be played: as the College vs. Acad- ' W emy, C. M. A. vs. Aurora and per- haps a Senior vs. Faculty game. Under the direction of Prof. Smucker and a student committee arrangements are in progress for a track meet consisting of seven or eight events to be held Wednesday forenoon, June 10. llpgggg The accompanying cut illustrates A' V the vigorous and practical exercise indulged in by the "Dorm" boys. llllllll C Officers Athletic Association: President--J.

This fund was started in March, 1906, for the purpose of raising from the students two thousand dollars for equipment. The larger part of this has been raised and the prospects are that in another year the full amount will be realized and applied for useful equipment- T3 The Reading Room YT 0235 The Ebbing of the Tide. BY ELSIE BYLER. HE crisis had come and the truth could no longer be concealed. Imogene lay dying. Servants had been in- structed to withhold the sad news from the old man as long as possible and when it became necessary to to make it known they should do so cautiously. But, although the message had been imparted gently, it had in it that bitter pang which slowly, yet effectually, saps the life of the heart. The old gardener looked bewildered for a moment. Mind seemed incapable of grasping so strange a truth. He uttered not a word but trembled violently. Reluctantly casting aside his tools, he wandered aimlessly to the foot of the garden and out upon the beach. Once there and listening to the voice to the sea, a thousand tender memories swept over him bringing a feel- ing of immeasurable loneliness and pain. For a time his mind reverted again to scenes of childhood and youth when two little children, hand in hand had played upon the green. Together they had gathered wild flowers in the joyous spring sunshine. Together they had played upon the beach building castles in the yellow sands. Together they had watched the tide come in devastating their work and leaving the wreckage of their childish plays strewn upon the shores. As in a dream, he heard again the sound of a merry laugh echoing among the trees while a face encircled with a halo of golden ringlets floated before his vision and then faded away. There had been a time when the two built a castle upon 1ife's strand and together had sought to realize their dream. Those were happy days! -those days of childish innocence and fancy, when Hope smiled and whis- pered of things sweet and fascinating. Then came a time when the safety of the nation demanded that the lives of her sons be sacrificed. Manly heroism and valor responded and there was a separation between thetwo humble, yet sincere lives. And the rift, scarce perceptible at first, gradually widened until the connection between those lives was wholly effaced with en- suing years. Those were sad days, when, alone, the youth had watched the tide of life come in, shattering his noble structure and leaving the wreckage upon life's shores. Those were days of inexpressible anguish and woe 76 When Hope looked backward and became regret. After that, there was a deep, bitter pain which time made more sacred with advancing years. Like a ray of brightness and glory to cheer and comfort his lonely existence had been the advent of Imo- gene. It was the one, thought which soothed the pain of the irrevocable past. It had been pleasant and yet with- ala rude shock when first the old man met an almost lifelike reproduction of the miniature which memory had graven in his heart. What a strange similarity between Imogene and the image round which his young life had once been centered and which was yet the solace of his lonely hours. More than this, her life was one whose very contrast, by degrees, became almost life itself to advancing age in lowliness and obscurity. From the long silence in which the old gardener's life had been shrouded, he emerged again into the present. Life was losing its bitter rebellion and peace and resignation came since again he inter- preted life in terms of childish innocence and fancy. It was now evening. The Waves, rough throughout A MF Se,,,'07f 41.15 . the entire day, had now become more gentle and calm. ' The wind had hushed. The moon had risen and with here and there a few stars was keeping her silent vigil. The voice of the sea rose in a lonely requiem which echoed and re-echoed along the neighboring shores with a mournful sound. The sound of nearing footsteps broke upon the old man's reverie. Silently, he waited their approach. It was John, the colored servant. The old man needed no further summons. Intuitively he knew, and the two went forth together and were ushered into the presence of death. He needed but to gaze on the placid features of the sleeper to know that the tide was fast ebbing away. Her face was pale and wan-but yet so peaceful and pure. Not even the white lillies which at her request, the old man had brought from the garden, could outvie the chaste purity of that face. 77 .... ss- Once only was there a lull in the outgoing tideg once only did the eyes of the sleeper open and the lips move. Probably her lifelong association with the gardener and all that was beautiful' in nature could not be dis- sociated even now. She smiled with a gleam of recognition at the old man and then the tide slipped softly, peace- fully, away into the great ocean. At his own request the old man was allowed to remain with Imogene for a time on the day previous to the one on which she was borne to her last resting place. As he watched by her side his grief gradually subsided. Something in her innocent slumber comforted his heart. She seemed to be chiselled in snowy marble, so calm was her repose. At times he fancied he saw a smile playing round her lips-a smile so like the one that had brightened his youthful days. He placed such iiowers around her as she had been wont to love, some feathery ferns, fragrant narcissi and a few of the white, waxen lilies which had so delighted her innocent fancy. All curious inquiry as to the old man's grief was si- lenced by the thoughtful mother. He was a faithful ser- vant-a gardener, who had long been in their employ and whose life had been one of most faithful service to his mistress and of untiring devotion to her child. Should she refrain from having him share the jovs and sorrows of the . family? True she knew nothing of his early life-he never . .4 I I - 4 referred to it. But then, souls of worth are often found in the humblest walks of life. Her own early childhood and maidenhood had been among the simple, hamlet people. She had been reared far from conventional life. Yes, for her the morning of life had dawned fairest in the days be- fore she had her present wealth and position. Most naturally she strove to comfort the old man, she Whose kindly manner and gentle, subdued tone be- , spoke a soul perfected through suffering-a soul made to ' S feel the sorrows of humanity. 78 She spoke to him most tenderly, as with a hand as tender as a daughter's she stroked the thin white hair which sorrow had withered before their time. Was it sympathy for her grief or a more acute sorrow of his own that caused the old man to lapse into a half unconscious stupor as'she rehearsed fragmentary bits of her childhood experiences in her efforts to comfort him ? She never knew. But when he regained his composure again, he lifted his eyes to hers with such a look of mute despair that she was alarmed as she watched him stagger from her presence. Then came a day when his feeble frame began to fail. There was a time when the tide of life began ebb- ing so gently, so imperceptibly that not even ministering hands could detect it, nay, not till the tide had slipped peacefully away into the great Ocean. Loving hands attended to every last rite and two mounds rose above the sod. Flowers were strewn above both. For the one-to cherish the memory of one Whose early death had broken the family circle with its tender associations: the other-for the sake of one who lived in similar humble manner and who had died in the service of his nation iso rumor said! but whose memory still hallowed and made sacred life's early morning. 106mm QW, 1 ,-.-4 9mm IN 1 I' .w TAJ 4 5 1 4 if "nh fu' Us " A .

The cherished hours and days ye bear In mirth away and leave us here To ponder o'er the change. We wait, Perchance, to see a sign or hear A word that tells the mystery. We linger now within the veil Of youthful years, to solve the past And read the leaves of unseen things To be. We covet not a view Of strange events that lie beyond The sphere of mortal minds: nor ask That years reveal what ne'er concerns The lives of men. O pleasant years! We do not call you back that we May here recall each childish thought Of yore. We cannot breathe again That fleeting breath that gave us birth To years of fullest bloom. But stay! We only ask one moment more, J. W. Shank. In which to view past scenes of joy. Once more restore those vanished scenes With all their cherished dreams of life. Once more bring back those golden thoughts That brightened every year of toil. But ye have fled bright years. N o more Ye come with song. But other years, We trust, shall bring as rich a joy. Ye came and went but with your stay We felt a force, so strange, that taught Us how to think and know 3 a force, That blessed our college days with smile 3 That felt with us the sterner pulse Of life, and yet revealed in love Earth's purest joys. The hour is here. We launch upon a vaster sea, Whose mighty tide We soon shall brave. The future years shall tell their tale Of joy or pain. We hasten on, To try our fateg to seek our goal. 81 iil The Alumni Association. OFFICERS. President, O. C. YODER. First Vice-President, J. M. KURTZ. Second Vice-President, A. B. RUTT.

THE history, achievements, ideals and spirit of an organization are very largely determined by the character and spirit and purpose of its leaders. The leadership of the organization of Goshen College Alumni Association is fairly well represented by those who have been its presidents during its history. Royer, deliberate and conser- vative, Kurtz, scientific and solidg Umble, enthusiastic and originalg Yoder, broadminded and practicalg Ginge- rich, intense and ambitiousg Reist, calm and farseeing 5 Ebersole, level headed and determined -these all have al- ready passed the first blush of youth and have become more or less settled in their ways of life and in their var- ious professions-the ministry, the teaching profession, the medical profession, journalism, etc.-and have shown excellent capacity for work, power of achievement and attainment of high ideals. Each has imparted something of his own individuality to the association of the alumni. Why have these, and many others worthy of honorable mention if space permitted, become active members of the Alumni Association and have given a part of their time and means to its cause ? First, because they believe in the principle of gratefulness. They feel that in days when their lives were less settled than now and when their minds were in a formative state, their Alma Mater-its teachings, its atmosphere and its infiuences-was a great and powerful moulder of their lives. Although they can never fully repay her for benefits received they wish to express their debt of deep and lasting gratitude to her, and since one of the direct purposes of the Alumni Association is to be of service to the College of which it is a part, the active members can through a united effort give their Alma Mater material and substantial aid, not only by sympathy and suggestion but by actual investment 83 of money. "How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child," says Shakespeare, and one some- times wonders how keenly a college must feel the sting given by those thankless children Who, after having spent a few years in a college and received untold benefits, leave her without giving her any expression of grati- tude or showing her any spirit of helpfulness. It is, then, the spirit or gratefulness that binds the members of the Alumni Association into an organization. But another reason why this association is in existence is that its members wish to foster and perpetu- ate the friendships formed in college life. It has sometimes been said, with an attempt at a very sorry and la- mentable kind of humor and by people who have not done much thinking, that a college is a good "match-factory." The truth is simply that the average age when persons are most susceptible to courtship and marriage is practi- cally the same as the average age of college students 3 so that Whether in college or out of college, courtship and marriage take place most frequently in these years. The college, per se, has nothing whatever to do with the af- fair. It is also true that in these years the rnind is susceptible to the most lasting attachments and to the very deepest affections, so that, in a very real sense, our college friendships are the most vital and permanent in life. It has been believed by all philosophers in all ages that our friendships constitute the most satisfying and sub- stantial fruits of life. It is a very high and worthy ideal, therefore that the Alumni Association should attempt to foster and perpetuate college friendshipsg and foolish indeed is the college graduate who goes off to live by him- self, alone, when he might, for the asking, count those with whom he associated in college, his nearest and dear- est friends. A third reason why the Alumni Association exists as an organization is that the members of it wish to fur- ther the interests of higher education. If higher education means anything at all, it means not only more knowl- edge but also broader experience and more abundant life. If a student that goes through college learns anything whatever, he ought to learn that the cause of education is next to the cause of religion itself. By being an active member of the Alumni Association an individual can, in a definite and practical way, express his allegiance to the cause of higher education. The history of the Association shows that it has measurably carried out these ideals. The Association has been empowered to elect several members to the Mennonite Board of Education, and thus have a voice in planning the policies of Goshen College. The Association holds annual reunions in which college friendships are renewed and perpetuated. The Association has raised a large endowment fund and is constantly increasing it. Some of 84 the interest of this fund has been used to help needy students through school. Some of it ls being used to build up a library of Mennonite History and there will be other uses to which this money can be put in future years. No one can foretell the future usefulness of this organization. Every member of it is a member for life, and every one who is at all eligible to membership, ought to become an active and enthusiastic member for the remaining time of his mortal years.
